Devil’s Advocate: The pros and cons of bringing in Mitch Marsh for R13
The final Devil’s Advocate is upon us. What a season it’s been. From COVID-19 rescheduling to ridiculously high ceilings, at times it’s been hard to keep up. But alas, we’re nearly at the end.
Now this round, there’s been one question that a lot of people have asked me, and it’s this: Do I bring in Mitch Marsh?
Well, on almost any other round, that’s an easy yes if he’s playing. But with four teams with the double this round, things start to work a little bit differently and he Mitch Marsh may not be a top priority. Below we go into the pros and cons of bringing Mitch Marsh in this round.
Mitch Marsh has a DGW in a sense, because he bowls nearly four overs and he bats at three. So his ceiling matches that of a DGW player.
He’s also in white-hot form with the bat and looks like he could score a ton every time he bats. He’s averaging 68 points with the bat and 35.6 with the ball. That’s essentially Jason Sangha plus Adam Zampa.
He could also be a handy POD, too. Yes his ownership may read as 15%, but a very large portion of those teams are inactive.
He only plays once and provides two opportunities for scoring, whereas a allrounder playing twice, has four scoring opportunities. If you don’t own Dan Christian or Sean Abbott, these guys should be owned before Marsh.
Verdict: Mitch Marsh should be in your side BUT, make sure you have all the high performing DGW all-rounders first. They are much more important than Marsh. Also make sure you own Ben McDermott before Marsh too.
