  • Tom Doedee (Adelaide)

If you didn’t get Doedee before his $95.2k price rise, get him in now before the price gets any higher. He has filled Jake Lever’s role beautifully and is averaging 95.3 which is A Grade defender material.

  • Sam Murray (Collingwood)

Same situation as Doedee, get him in before the price gets any higher. Murray has not been as good as Doedee but at $191,700 and with an average of 75, he is a must have.

  • Shane Savage (St Kilda)

The Saints are struggling but Savage isn’t. He is just short of being a premium price and if you can’t afford to have Rory Laird, Michael Hurley and Kade Simpson in the same team, Savage is a good option at $490,800 with an average of 103.3.

  • Rory Laird (Adelaide)

Supercoach jet. If you don’t already have him, get him now. His price is high at $566,400 but with an average of 120.7, he is worth it.


  • Ryan Burton (Hawthorn)

Burton was good last year but it seems he is playing a new role for the Hawks this season and isn’t getting as much of the ball. His average sits at 42 and his price is rapidly dropping, so get rid of him now.

  • Dane Rampe (Sydney)

Rampe had a decent average of 77.7 last year which is good for a mid-price option, but so far this year his average sits at 55 and his price has already dropped $42k to $426,300. There’s better at that price. Trade.


  • Michael Hibberd (Melbourne)

Hibberd was huge for Supercoach players last year but he’s been quiet the first few rounds of this season. With two scores of low 70s and then a low 90, he has been disappointing but he is worth holding on to for a while longer.

  • Michael Hurley (Essendon)

Hurley has been good so far this year but not great. He already has two scores of 100 and that’s with his team playing exceptionally poor. He generally works his way into the season and peaks mid-year so hold on to him for now.
