The Football Stock Market – Round 7

Note: This is a copy of the article that can be found on the Sportsdeck Fantasy A-League website.

Good day fantasy fanatics, and welcome to the week 7 edition of The Football Stock Market for Fantasy A-League RDT; brought to you by the folks at SuperCoach HQ.

Unfortunately a piece of news to mention is that due, to the earthquake that hit New Zealand a few days ago and the subsequent threat to infrastructure, the Wellington Phoenix vs. Melbourne Victory match has been postponed to a date yet to be determined. In times like these, we put aside our football colours and have in our thoughts the family and friends of all those affected by this sad time.

But as usual, we’re here to tell you who to buy, hold and sell for your fantasy teams this week. Whether the star players are priced out-of-reach or you’re stuck with bottom-priced player out of form, read on to see who our picks are for this week’s round!

BUY:

Bobo ($232,400) [FWD]

The Brazilian striker returned to goal-scoring ways in a Syndey side that can’t stop scoring or winning. His price is right back to where he started; a tempting one for well-proven results.

Andrew Nabbout ($185,300) [FWD]

Undoubtedly the key to the Jets’ forward line, the young striker is lively in all forms of his game. Deservedly getting on the score-sheet and will look to find some consistent form and minutes.

Sergi Guardiola ($252,300) [FWD]

Three goals in three games; it is no surprise the Spaniard has turned his shots and possessions in to goals. As the Reds slowly find back their form, expect this man to lead the front.

HOLD:

Tommy Oar ($240,900) [MID]

He may not have gotten on the score sheet, but showed plenty of spirit and power along the way, earning man-of-the-match honours in many eyes. Expect further rewards soon.

Isaias ($193,400) [MID]

Already on the chopping block for some, but his form on the weekend showed he is not ready to throw in the towel quite yet. If Adelaide return to winning ways, expect this man to play a key role.

Andy Keogh ($357,500) [FWD]

He can’t stay quiet for long the tall Irishman. With an eye like his for goal, he still has plenty value in him to give another chance this week as Perth look to return back to form.

 SELL:

Thomas Broich ($200,300) [MID]

The A-League veteran has been demoted to a bench role, and while that may provide a spark, it is not want fantasy players want to see.

James Holland ($180,300) [MID]

The high-profile recruit is struggling to live up to the expectations based on him. A victim of Adelaide’s form slump, the ex-Socceroo isn’t getting involved as much as we once hoped.

Wayne Brown ($151,800) [MID]

He started brightly, but the midfielder’s price has crashed back to earth. Struggling to convincingly dictate the Jets’ play, his form appears to have faded for now.

CAPTAIN OPTIONS:

Fornaroli

Does the man really need an introduction? A reliable captain candidate and a very influential player. He knows how to find the net, and is coming up against a Wanderers side struggling to keep out the goals.

Ninkovic

The league’s most in-form player in the league’s most in-form side. The Serb dictates, creates and finishes a majority of the Sky Blues’ play, and playing away will mean nothing to a side with this much confidence.

Castro

Hard to convincingly predict, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the Spaniard spurs his Glory back to winning ways. Playing at home against an Adelaide defence that tends to open up quite easily, one might expect the marquee man to dazzle his way towards form this week.

Good luck, and don’t forget to check out more of our stuff at SuperCoach HQ for all your latest Fantasy A-League needs!
