Many teams hit form again, but some just had too many injuries and suspensions to deal with.
5. Adam Goodes 148 - It's the perfect time to snap up Goodsey. Because he's officially back, and his performance against the Lions was brilliant.
4. Steve Morris 81 - Morris was carried down to the rooms in the second quarter with a shoulder problem and only on 25 SC points (and with many coaches relying on his score due to the absence of Waters and Goddard), but he thankfully returned and produced a decent score.
3. Matthew Pavlich 175 - We all know that Pav is capable of these sorts of days. Six goals and a B.O.G.
2. Cyril Rioli 159 - Even though it was against the Giants, Rioli owners will certainly take this, let's hope he can string a few decent scores together.
1. Sam Jacobs 146 - A massive 61 hit-outs from the Saucy Jacobs, and a Showdown medal to go with it. Jacobs is really starting to hit his straps at the business end of the season.
5. Scott Selwood 63 (10.8%) - The West Coast midfielders must have carved up! Priddis 170, Cox 215, Selwood? Especially against the Roos, many expected more.
4. Jonathan Brown 49 (4.5%) - Just when we thought Browny was back into form, he was shut down by a relative bogey side of his, Sydney.
3. Steve Johnson 0 (11.1%) - Thanks for nothing, Steve. A late withdrawal (for the Gold Coast match) left many coaches with a donut.
2. Patrick Ryder 79 (14.0%) - Most of the Bombers had a bad day against the Saints, but Ryder proved that he is still lacking that consistency.
1. Greg Broughton 52 (7.8%) - Has been serviceable in the last few months, but 52 just isn't enough from the premium players.
