Finally, it’s the last game of the bloody byes, so what better way to celebrate than taking a piece of the Moneyball Sunday Special. Here are a few guys that I think are worth considering.
DOGS V DEES: 3.10PM
Jack Watts (FWD, $7,100)
Looked out of sorts while helping out in the ruck but since Frost is back, he has looked a far more potent scorer with scores of 99 and 84 in his last two which makes him a good buy..
Mitch Wallis (MID, $7,400)
An absolute bargain for this price. He has been outstanding since returning from injury, averaging 26 disposals a game for an average of 87.
Mitch Honeychurch (FWD, $5,700)
This young Dog is basically a forgotten man at the kennel, but he gets another chance today and will be keen to hang around this time. What I like the most about this pick other than hisprice, is the fact he can score. In round 12 last year he gathered 22 possessions, took six marks, laid six tackles and kicked a goal for 100.
Michael Hibberd (DEF, $7,500)
Is a great option in the back line and at a nice price. Last week he had his first bad score for a month and he is a sure thing to go 90 against the Dogs. Another reason you want Demon defenders is because they concede the least amount of points to opposition backmen.
Tom Liberatore (MID, $7,400)
After spending an extended period in the VFL, Libba will be keen to bounce back and I think he does that through tackles. In the first two games of the season he had 14 and 16 tackles which were converted to triple figure scores but in the weeks leading up to getting dropped his tackle count had dropped significantly. He bounces back with 10 here.
Cam Pedersen (FWD $7,400)
Remains a great selection at this price. He has averaged 97, and doesn’t rely on hit outs to do that with an average of just 15 per game. What impresses me the most about that is he is coming up against the Dogs who give up plenty of hit outs to opposition rucks, so he may get a bonus 10 points. Reinforcing that point, Dogs lost the hit out count 16-65 last week.
