Joe Daniher - 253 points @ 50
The Bombers' had a very settled side, and as a result didn't have many debutants. On the same note, no-one got Bombers fans as excited as the tall fella up forward, Joe Daniher. He played only five matches, but showed enough to have high hopes for the future. Unlikely to be fantasy relevant next season however.
Michael Hibberd - 2,110 points @ 96
Hibberd began 2013 with a bang after missing a large chunk of 2012 with a hamstring problem. While he couldn't maintain his average of 101 after 10 matches, he was very consistent, scoring below 80 on only four ocassions. Well done if you picked him from the outset.
Brendon Goddard - 2,334 points @ 106
Goddard was one of the best results to come out of Essendon's 2012 post-season, except for maybe Joey Daniher. He crossed into triple figures on 13 ocassions, an elite result for a premium defender. As a result, he wound up in more than 65% of teams, the most out of anyone in the competition behind only 'The Little Master'.
Patrick Ryder - 1,533 points @ 90
Big Patty looked pretty tempting at the start of the season, with DPP (FWD/RUCK) and costing $564,300. However, a limited pre-season proved defining, and Ryder managed only 17 games for the season. Even worse, he scored only five hundreds. He'll certainly be a lot more reasonably priced next year.
Travis Colyer: Colyer only played seven matches in 2013, and when he did, he was often caught in the subs vest. Has a lot of talent and recently re-signed; the Bombers rate him.
Jake Carisle: What a break-out year from the defensive giant. He only missed one match, and showed in glimpses that he has what it takes at both ends of the ground. Here's hoping he gets some decent time up forward in 2014.
