Thankfully, most of the popular players who played, scored pretty well. So who pleased the coaches this round, and who disappointed us?
5. Chad Wingard - 17 (11.8%)
4. Chad Cornes - 25 (4.3%)
3. Todd Goldstein - 40 (2.6%)
2. Daniel Giansiracusa - 33 (1.2%)
1.Brendan Whitecross - 47 (4.6%)
Without naming those whose performances were effected by injury, most of the disappointments this week were relatively unpopular.
Wingard dropped in price earlier than should be expected from a cash cow, and Chad Cornes forgot it wasn't the showdown, lost his temper, and finished with 25 points. Goldstein is here again, McIntosh has been the death of him. For a player of Gia's experience, he needs to average more than 62 points per game. Only 33 on the weekend from him. Not good enough. And after pumping up Whitecross just the other week, many looked to him for another solid performance. He didn't deliver in the scrap-fest against the Eagles.
5. Kane Cornes - 103
4. Paul Duffield - 116
3. Luke Dahlhaus - 147
2. Stewart Crameri - 131
1. Luke Parker - 128
Both Duffield and Broughton had tough starts to the year, but if you stuck with them, you're now seeing the rewards. Crameri was an up and down scorer last year, but he's now a reliable, solid scorer. And well done if you held onto Luke Parker following his KO'd courtesy of James McDonald, he dominated the first half against the Roos. Expect more scores like this one.
Star of the Week
Proved himself as a SuperCoach premium with a superb 161 points against fierce rival Carlton. While not a heap of teams have him still, one of my opponents had him captain. Ouch. This isn't just a start-of-season blitz, no, Stanton is now the real deal.
He'll cost you $591,000, so he is still some way off a top-liner's price (Perhaps a replacement for Ablett, not that I advise trading him out).
