Jaeger O'Meara - 1,983 points @ 90
What a season from the much anticipated debutant. He was recognised with the Rising Star award and finished as GC's second highest SC point scorer. Not much more can be said. Made a healthy profit for all coaches with him, and those who held him as a keeper can also be satisfied.
Trent McKenzie - 1,594 points @ 89
McKenzie went from a ball bursting midfielder who averaged high 60s in 2012 to a highly efficient rebounding defender averaging a tough under 90 in 2013. Charlie Dixon was unlucky not to be most improved, but missed a lot through injury. The 'Cannon' McKenzie should improve again next year.
Dion Prestia - 1,950 points @ 98
The nuggety on-baller took his game into the top bracket in 2013 as predicted by yours truly this time last year. He averaged a very impressive 103 from round seven onwards, proving a valuable and cheap POD. Will continue to flourish under Ablett.
Greg Broughton - 1,224 points @ 72
Many removed Broughton from their 'Never-Again List' after his move to the Suns, but it was a move that would back fire. Broughton played even more defensively than at the Dockers, and played only 17 games. Ouch. Never. Again.
The extremely talented Tasmainian managed only four games in his debut year as he had several injury set-backs. Look for him to be fixture in many midfields at hopefully a very reasonable price.
You may recall that Dixon started the year on fire, averaging 115 from his first five games. But as mentioned, a recurring ankle injury curtailed his influence. Hopefully he stays fit in 2014.
