Players of Interest – Matt Moylan
With Valentine Holmes leaving and Shaun Johnson arriving this offseason, Matt Moylan reclaims the fullback jersey that placed him on the SuperCoach radar for everyone in 2016 and 2017 with an average of 63 PPG in 29 games. Can he become relevant once again in 2019?
2018 Stats: Games played: 21, Average: 52, Tries: 2
2017 Stats: Games played: 18, Average: 59, Tries: 8
His dual position availability at 5/8 / FLB makes him more of an interesting prospect this year, but it should also be noted that he’s far from the only dual 5/8 / FLB this year... Think Kalyn Ponga, Cameron Munster and Connor Watson....It ain't thin!
He is a little awkwardly priced at a 52 PPG average, but if he averages anywhere close to what he produced in 2016 and 2017 then he’ll make approximately $100,000. Interestingly, of the 5/8 eligible players last year, it was only Johnson and Cody Walker who averaged over 60 PPG (and played more than one game).
Cronulla play three of their first four games away, but play four teams that didn’t make the finals last year, and three teams that gave up plenty of points to fullbacks, including the Knights (3rd), Titans (1st), Cowboys (13th) and the Eels (4th).
He's on my radar this year, what about you?
