Can he mix it with the big boys of Supercoach, or will it be second year blues?
Marcus Adams was a revelation for the Dogs this year. A mature aged player from West Perth, he was picked at #35 in the national draft. After firming for a round 1 berth, 39% of coaches started with him in their forward or backline. This swelled to 57% after 24 possessions, 5 marks, and 135 SC points against Jock’s Saints in round 2.
His season was cut short by finger and foot issues, only managing 11 games. Though he still managed to establish himself as a key part of the Bulldogs back 6. Not too shabby for a bloke in his first year of AFL.
Can he back it up in 2017?
|Games last season:||11|
|Average last season:||80.6|
|100+ games last season:||1|
|Sub 80 games last season:||5|
|Price range last season:||$117K – $371K|
|Missed games last season:||
I’m just going to cut straight to the chase here, 439k is simply too much for Marcus Adams in 2017. He has lost his DPP status and if history has taught us anything, 400k-odd defenders are a massive headache *coughRichcough*
Take out his one monster score and his average drops to 75.2. I think that’s exactly the type of scores we can expect from Marcus. His numbers remind me a lot of Jeremy McGovern. Doesn’t need a lot of it to score an 70-80 but that’s his ceiling. Will have the odd good day out but he’s not the type you can rely on every week.
He also stood beside Tomahawk (R13) and Buddy (R15) for returns of 62 and 50 respectively. Doggies are flush for rebounding defenders, Marcus Adams may very well be a key position back in 2017.

- You’re not fair dinkum serious about this caper
- You lost a bet
- You’ve clicked/tapped on him by accident after a few too many celebratory cans because the footy is back and we no longer have to watch Australia attempt to play cricket.
- Uses it well. 66.8 average in fantasy v 80.6 in SC
- 94.7% TOG in his first season
- Intercept possessions are good for Supercoach scoring
- Limited ceiling
- Unsure of his defensive role week-to-week
- Missed 8 H/A games and the finals with a foot issue that was originally a 1-2 week injury
Nothing to see here. Move along.
