The Kiwi quick has been extremely impressive in two games to date.
He has scores of 40 and 73 and has been extremely economical in the process.
He’s relatively affordable at $133k, had the double in Round 8 and has the potential to go big.
Due to his late start to the competition he’s in just 1.6% of all teams!
I’m a big fan and will strongly consider he and Malan in my side this week.
We have another round without a double game week, before turning our entire attention to the Renegades and Sixers for their Round 6 double.
We have six trades between now and then, and you’ll likely want a minimum of five players between these sides, so they have to be a part of your trade plans this week.
There are no more byes this season, while the Heat and Thunder have the Round 8 double, so start factoring these guys roughly into your plans.
In particular the likes of Ollie Davies and Tanveer Sangha who may be invaluable for that double, but will likely be too expensive when that times comes, so it may be worth jumping on at their current price.
While it’s not a huge issue, note that the Strikers and Hurricanes are the only sides without another double game week this season.
Josh Philippe will likely come in next week as he has a breakeven of 125 and should drop significant cash, but there’s an option to go Alex Carey to him this week.
Kane Richardson is another I’ll have next week at the latest, but all of a sudden there’s a lot of cash needing to be freed up to sign all these players.
I’m tempted to go a POD such as Milne or Jhye Richardson, but these are all decisions I’m weighing up.
I have players such as Phil Salt, Xavier Bartlett, Max Bryant and Ollie Davies who all have very small breakevens and will make big money in coming weeks, so ideally I need to wait a week at least to move them on.
