2019 Potential Targets:

Rory Laird DEF $782K

Despite missing 2 games last season Laird provided stability at a volatile position for fantasy coaches, he scored 100pts or more in 70.0% of games & 120pts or more in 35.0% of games last season.

Laird wasn’t significantly impacted by the poor form of the Crows in 2018, he averaged 110.2pts from winning games & 104.1pts from losing games. Laird averaged 112.5pts when Adelaide scored 100pts or more last season.

With the long term injury to Sam Docherty the ownership for Laird will likely be high again next season, based on his recent fantasy history Laird will likely be a comfortable own in 2019 providing a generous amount of ceiling games.

Matt Crouch MID $761K

Crouch was another that had an interrupted season after sustaining a hamstring injury in Round 2, he averaged 116.2pts from his final 9 games which could be an indicator of his value at Round 1 next season.

Crouch scored 100pts or more in 66.7% of games & 120pts or more in 33.3% of games last season, he averaged 106.4pts from losing games.

There a multiple premium midfield options to choose from to begin the 2019 season, Matt Crouch is one of those options based on his previous scoring history.

Brad Crouch MID $524K

After missing the entire 2018 season with Osteitis Pubis Brad Crouch is severely discounted entering the 2019 H&A season, of course his pre-season needs to be monitored but at this stage there are no issues.

“He’s tracking really well, he’s pain free.. He’s excited about coming back & getting into full training” Don Pyke on Brad Crouch in mid-December.

Crouch averaged 103.1pts in the 2017 H&A season, he averaged 121.0pts from 3 Finals. During the 2017 season Crouch scored 100pts or more in 70.0% of games & 120pts or more in 25.0 of games, if he can replicate those numbers in 2019 then he will be a bargain selection.
