I'm thinking of bringing in Trav Boak this week.

I like him at $550K. 116 so far this year, 110 last year, 107 the year before so I like him as a keeper.

Before anyone mentions age/durability...

From 2015-2021, Boak has missed 2 games - yes, you read that right...he has missed 2 games in the last 7 seasons (and has a nice bye).

MY only concern is I somehow haven't seen Port once this year and taking a closer look at his scores....

He scored 160 vs a terrible, winless North in a massive rout.
121 vs 16th placed St Kilda in a big win
120 vs 12th Essendon in a big win
106 vs 13th Carlton
104 vs 10th WC
84 vs 7th Richmond.

The point being is that he has dined out on terrible midfields in big wins but not scored that well against mid table teams and they are yet to play any of the current top 6. Will he keep it up against Melbourne, Bulldogs, Geelong, etc or will he revert to a 105 ave (or lower)?

Are there better options at that $550 mark?
This aged well...

Mitchell on track to get to down around the 500K mark. Could be a massive bargain if he can get even halfway back to his best. Does anyone who’s been watching Hawthorne games think he can? Or is it bruise free football for TM from here on in?
I watched the hawks v crows game.
JOM def stealing some of hes points

Mitchell set up afew of hawks goals .
No love from CD.

He had 11 touches in the 3rd Q.
Was good CD didnt give much love.

Was quiet in the 4th

Was 100-110 game after been 50 at HT.
Only got 90 points.

I like him as a player.
But wish i got walsh or tracca.
They will score more imo.
As Rocker suggests, he is getting no love from CD this year. I understand that many possessions are dinky 1-2m handballs, but they do link up play and when he does have effective possession he gets stuff all for it.
Think he is being marked harder than others this year and is not the only one.
He has been 100-105 good, bot his previous 110+ good though.

Ha, ha..just had to happen, didn't it - no less than an hour after I posted too!

Rule #1 of SC - never tempt the SC Gods - they're a spiteful bunch entertained by our misery.
Don't tempt the SC Gods?

Alright, here's my go since I don't have him.

Impey is looking fit and injury free, prime for a top 6 forward, what a bargain to those who started with him!

Careful, SC Gods are no fools and love to laugh - just watch your POD forward spud it up or get injured while Impey goes 110+ now.

I can afford any mid. Already have Macrae, Kelly, Merrett, Mitchell and Laird in there. Who is the best option?

Had Boak until he was injured. Now thinking Petracca, Oliver or Treloar.

Yep. Spot on. There have been some interpretations that have changed markedly this year. For one - there are kicks being judged as clangers that would have been judged long kick to a contest any other year.

But even taking this into account Mitchell is still going to be value at sub 500K isn’t he?
