One of the topscoring KFC SuperCoach rookies of 2019 is on the move, with greater opportunities beckoning. Will a return to South Australian elevate Jackson Hately into premium status?

Where’s Jackson Hately?

Hately wasn’t seen again until Round 15 after a 21-disposal, six-mark game in Round 7, leaving thousands of SuperCoaches scratching their heads.

The 19-year-old struggled for regular opportunities again this season, only managing five more games after a SuperCoach score of 108 in Round 3.

The South Australian has asked for a return to his home state after two seasons with the Giants and will be hoping for a trade to Adelaide for 2021.

Should free agent Brad Crouch depart the Crows — as expected — Hately looms as a direct replacement.
Champion Data statistics show Hately spent 91 per cent of his six games this year on a wing — averaging 89.7 points per 100 minutes in that role.

The likelihood of greater time in the engine room at Adelaide will make him an attractive option for next season at the lower end of the mid-price range.

Stats guru Brice Mitchell (@bricemitchell) has Hately projected to start next season at $314k.

That would likely mean KFC SuperCoaches would have to settle for Hately at M5 or M6 unless they are willing to make huge sacrifices in other positions.

If he comes in at $314, Hately would be priced to average about 58 points.

He’s almost certain to eclipse that number, but by how much?

If he can get to a 100 average and into premium territory, Hately will be worth paying the extra money for.

But if his average lags in the 80s or 90s, coaches could be left with a player not generating money or hitting premium numbers.

Hately went to the top of the watch list when he requested a trade — but one thing many coaches learned this year is not to pick players based on the promise of more midfield time.

Looks a lock to me. I noticed last night he hadn’t been mentioned as much as I expected .
Who needs J Lloyd?

Very consistent and for roughly $100,000 less is capable of delivering similar output and/or ensuring there is not a large differential between the two during the first quarter,etc of the season.

Unless something dramatically changes over the next week (or two), reckon can nearly safely assume that Danger will be a MID/FWD next year given how many time he's had a forward starting position at stoppages. We knew he was borderline going into the finals, and based off the two finals games he's played so far you'd have to think the scales are now well and truly tipped in the favour of DPP.

Somewhat disappointing result, assuming that’s the case as that’s one position that will be the same for almost everyone. Will be a brave coach to start without him as F1.

De Goey apparently asking for $ 1 million a season , surely no club would even pay close to that.

Might get 3-4 decent games out of him a season , would have to be one of the most over rated players in the competition.
