Title: 2013 SuperCoach Player Profile: Xavier Ellis
Post by: Jroo on September 23, 2012, 11:09:08 AM
Xavier Ellis
Price: 219 400 (Fan Planner)
2012 Games: 3
2012 Ave: 59
2011 Games: 8
2011 Ave: 79
Position: Midfield but should be defence to I reckon

Ellis has struggled with injuries for his whole career and particularly over the last 2 years only playing 11 out of 44 Home and Away games. Ellis was coming of his best Supercoach season last year averaging 79 but only playing the 8 games. If Ellis can not get injured and play all 22 games, then he is someone to watch. But for years now we have been waiting for the number 3 draft pick to have a break out year and hopefully 2013 could be his year. If Ellis has a strong pre season, his price and possibly Midfield/Defence DPP makes him very tempting.

2013 Supercoach Point Average Prediction: 75-80

Last year was his 1st pre season, then got injured just before the season started.

If he has a full pre season, with no post season surgery Ill get him in, will be nice and cheap, often racks up 20+ possies a game...when he plays that is

Needs to prove he can play a full season before I'll give him a second look. Chances are if I start with him he'll become a liability. No go.

However if he can keep himself fit he could establish himself as a legitimate def premium. Time will tell I suppose.

Should definitely be considered at that price, but yeah...injuries really turn me off him  :P

My thoughts exactly. With the amount of returning from injury players that are genuine SC options this year, I think I'll steer clear of Ellis.

Guy is the epitomy of the phrase injury prone! Used to think he was just butter soft, but i kinda feel sorry for him now. Wont be risking him. I swear he picked up another injury in the granny right when he was playing well haha the guy is jinxed

No chance whatsoever for my team regardless of his injury history. There is something about the way he plays that I just don't like. Looks like a bit of a softy or something.
