Callan Ward (MID, 9,100) Had a ‘down’ week compared to recent standards with 84, However, I wouldn’t be worried as he was still dominant with 33 touches and 15 clearances (ranked #1 for Round 17). He is averaging 116 over the last four games and is under priced if he can get in that ballpark.
Brodie Grundy (RUC, $9,600) is coming up against the Eagles who concede the third most points to opposition rucks and more importantly, has the job to himself with Mason Cox named emergency. The significance of this is Grundy averages 87 sharing and 116 solo, dropping under triple figures just once.
Liam Duggan (MID, $6,100) is under priced due to a significant role change over the past two week where he has swapped form a low scoring fwd/mid to a high scoring defender. Over the first 15 games he averaged 60 with a highest possession count of 19 but in round 16 and 17 his move back has resulted in scores of 88 and 124 from 22 and 31 touches respectively.
Alex Witherden (MID, $5,200) Is the value pick of the day, essentially picking himself for that price on the back of 96,82 and 91 while mopping up across half back. He is in fact the second highest scoring Lion in that time which gives you an idea of how the four gamer has fit in seamlessly.
Dayne Beams (MID, $8,100) After a slow start last week, Beamer got going and scored 80 over the last three quarters. He went on a hot streak earlier in the year which consisted of 144, 116 and 145 over a three week stretch and he is cheap for someone capable of those returns.
My shout team!
Sam Kerridge (MID, $7,700) has risen to the occasion in the absence of Curnow with scores of 107, 111 and 91 in the last three weeks. To get an idea of what kind of form he is in, Kerridge possession tallies of 35 and 30 in the last fortnight are his two highest over his entire career. The only other time he has reached 30 possessions was last year against the Lions when he top scored with 139!
