With just 5 weeks left to go in the 2019 season for SuperCoach season coaches are feverishly preparing for league finals and a last-ditch push for overall rankings glory. The name of the game for many is now about bringing in players into your team that will set you apart and create a point of difference in your team.
That said, some players are getting almost no attention or love from coaches in the run home. So here are 10 inform players in SuperCoach that have crazy low ownership.
Dayne Zorko | MID | $566,800 |Avg: 104.3 (3.4% owned)
In ripping form at the moment, averaging 119 in his previous five weeks and has 8 tons over the past 11 weeks. Matches against the Hawks, Dogs and Suns is a reasonably favourable midfield matchup and with all the opposition attention going to Lachie Neale it means Lion’s magician is sneaking under the radar for SuperCoach owners and is among one of the most inform midfielders.
Christian Salem | DEF | $507,200 |Avg: 98 (4.6% owned)
It’s been a disastrous season for the Demons but one of the few shining lights has been the consistency of Salem. Since returning from the bye he’s posted scores of 104, 133, 87, 94 & 139. His next two opponents in St Kilda and Richmond over the year have shown to give up significant scores to outside ball users and I full expect Salem to capitalise on that.
Elliot Yeo| MID | $566,800 |Avg: 104.3 (3.4% owned)
He is slightly down on his scoring last year, but he’s still a very worthwhile selection. Over his past 11 matches, he’s had just three scores below 110 and has only once scored under 90. His upcoming opposition includes North Melbourne, Adelaide, Carlton & Richmond with none of them that have a designated tagger that I believe is capable of negating his impact on the game. The other factor about him is he doesn’t build his scores by disposals and scoreboard impact alone, but it’s also his defensive pressure. In his previous five matches, his tackle count has been between 7 – 12, so even if some defensive pressure comes on him like last week, he’s still got great scoring avenues.
Darcy Byrne-Jones | DEF | $525,000 |Avg: 88 (1% owned)
I know on first glance this looks bad, but sometimes we need to look beneath the surface. In his past nine matches, DBJ has really turned it on with no scores below 80 and five tons. He also has three of his final five games at Adelaide Oval where his past three scores have been 117, 121 and 130.
Tom Lynch| FWD | $484,8100 |Avg: 90.9 (0.9% owned)
It took him longer to return than Crows fans wanted to from injury but now that he’s back he could be perfectly unique way to finish that forward line. Over the next two weeks, the Crows take on the Blues and Saints and then have a round 23 matchup against the Bulldogs, all favourable for the link-up man. This year prior to injury between rounds 6-11 he scored: 95, 99, 111, 100 & 109.
Jarryd Lyons | MID | $529,500 |Avg: 94.1 (0.7% owned)
He’s on the hot streak of his life with six tons in his past eight matches including scores of 127, 130, 139 & last weekend against the Kangaroos a massive 165. Just over 1,500 coaches own him in the entire competition so if he keeps on this form stretch he’ll be the absolute pinnacle definition of unique as sadly sometimes as coaches we fall for a ‘name’ player rather than just letting the data direct us to who we should pick.
Josh Kelly | MID | $614,000 |Avg: 119.8 (8.4% owned)
This might be a slightly controversial inclusion for some, but given he’s only two weeks away from returning from injury and when fit is arguably the best midfielder in the game he needs to be featured. With less than 10% of coaches owning him he’d be a massive unique on the run home against the Hawks, Dogs and Suns when he returns. He’s currently on a run of nine consecutive 100’s and it’d be brave and bold but to bring him but it could be a masterstroke as he’s also a viable captaincy option.
