Last Drinks – Fremantle 2017 Preview

With some big names returning for Fremantle this season it is possible we could see a return to the Top 8 for the Dockers. Those players plus a few other choices are discussed below and could improve your SuperCoach performance in 2017.

Blue Chip Investment

Nathan Fyfe – MID – $573,500 – Player Ownership: 63.9%

The 2015 Brownlow Medalist is back after breaking his leg early last season. He is clearly Freo’s best midfielder (with all respect to Lachie Neale and David Mundy) and while he only played five games last season he still managed a 157, 115 and 141. He really should be the first player picked in every team and a ridiculous 176 in JLT 3 should allay any concerns.

JLT SC scores: 93, 72, 176

Mid Price Potential

Aaron Sandilands – RUC – $308,200 – Player Ownership: 49.9%

The big man is 34 and yet he is one of the most selected players in for SuperCoach season 2017. While there is a definite fear that his body will begin to slow down and/or break down. But we must remember that Sandi’s injury last year was broken ribs which was just a touch unlucky. He should be feeling refreshed and if his JLT form is anything to go by he has earned a position as one of the two starting rucks in your team.

JLT SC scores: DNP, 166, 68

Point of Difference

David Mundy – MID – $507,200 – Player Ownership: 0.3%

Mundy is a super consistent in and under type player who can score some very big scores, like we saw in JLT 2. Unfortunately for him his average fell below 100 for the first time in the last 4 seasons but with Fyfe now back in the team this could free Mundy up seeing a return to a decent average. At just over 500k, Mundy could be that POD that allows you to fly up the rankings.

JLT SC scores: 20, 151, 99

Rookie

Griffin Logue – DEF – $180,300 – Player Ownership: 2.4%

Bloody Ross Lyon! Doesn’t like playing rookies which makes it really hard for anyone to be sure that they will get a game. Interestingly, though Logue has already had his contract renewed for an extra year meaning that everyone at Freo must be seriously impressed with this kid. He also played in JLT 3 and scored pretty well considering he only played just over half of the game. Is that a sign he will be in the team Round 1?

JLT SC scores: DNP, DNP, 56

Stay Away

Cam McCarthy – FWD – $203,600 – Player Ownership: 20.3%

Have seen him in quite a few teams and all I can say is please take him out. Key positions forwards rarely score well and despite my like for McCarthy as a player you are going to be better suited to picking a $120,000 rookie as opposed to McCarthy. In his third JLT game Cam kicked six big goals but still only scored 86 SC points. What is he going to score when he doesn’t kick a goal? Please avoid.

JLT SC scores: 39, 58, 86
