There are some obvious underperforming guns that I don’t
need to go into detail with such as Cook, Munster and RTS.
If you can convince someone that these guys won’t bounce
back, give me a spot in that numpty league.
I will just touch on some of the more interesting
Latrell Mitchell (CTW/FLB)
Enough has been said about Latrell that he may fall into
the obvious underperforming guns.
However, he is worth some detail because his scores have
been particularly bad averaging 20 points for the first two rounds and some
SuperCoaches might be impatient with him given the shortened season.
We all know that Latrell will get better as the season
goes on and he finds his match fitness.
This is even historically correct as a goal kicking
centre – In 2019 he averaged 37PPG in the first two games and in 2018 he
averaged 38PPG, he went on to post monster averages of 70PPG and 64PPG by the
end of the season.
Coaches that own Latrell in the bottom half of the season
may not have the time to hold him until he comes good and it is worth preying
on that for a trade.
I also think he has looked a lot fitter in training photos after the COVID-19 break.
Braidon Burns (CTW)
Burns has averaged a disappointing 19PPG this year and
was subbed off to make way for Latrell in his second game.
Like Latrell, he has had a tough few matches but has
shown better output than what he is currently delivering.
Once Latrell can play 80 minutes at fullback and Cody Walker
is back he should be producing a much better score.
The break would have also helped his dodgy hammys.
You can probably get a very good deal on him at the moment and he is worth the gamble.
