Luxury trades – Ep. 218

Last year Tom Mitchell broke the record for the most Fantasy points scored in the season. He’s on track to beat that following his 187 on Sunday afternoon. With his price back to where it started and sights set on the next record, breaking Tom Rockliff’s 134.8 average from 2014, Mitchell is a set-and-forget captain week-to-week.

While the Hawk’s form has been outstanding, he’s the most popular player in Fantasy Classic. Coaches are looking at other form players that could get them a leg up in the last round of head-to-head fixtures before Fantasy finals.

There is always talk about finding a point of difference for your team to allow you to have an extra unique in your match-ups. Roy looks at his rolling best-22 players with some suggestions for each line if you’d like to take the unique route.

As teams are getting set for the finals, many moves appear to be luxury as we use our allocated two trades per week.

  • DEF: Laird, Yeo, Brayshaw, Hurley, Witherden, Hurn (Redman, Brown)
    MID: Titch, Jelly, Coniglio, Cripps, Heppell, Taranto, Seedsman, Phillips (Sier, Smith)
    RUC: Gawn, Sinclair (Cameron, Abbott)
    FWD: Smith, Westhoff, McLean, Franklin, McDonald, Robinson (Ahern, Battle)

    Thinking of doing:
    Phillips + Ahern to $170K Rookie + Oliver + $36K

    What are some other possible moves, looking at PODs

    • Daniel

      I think Seedsman is a bigger problem than Phillips
      Trade Redman to mid rookie (Freeman although won’t be picked he should be soon)
      Move J Smith to back bench
      Seedsman to Martin (you’ll need $130 difference but make $90 with earlier trade)
      Best of luck with the rest of the season

    • Ed or Tom Phillips?
      If you have Ed, then your trades look solid.
      If you mean Tom, then I agree with thebopper that there are bigger issues to deal with – Seedsman has to go!

    • Thanks for the advice guys. I should’ve cleared it up, but it is Ed Phillips who I was looking at trading out.

  • still no mention of jayden short? Averaging about 95 in last 8 games and is a jet.

    • He was mentioned on numerous occasions all last week, have a proper read before you just blurt out anything in future please squeezer

  • Dunkley anyone? Dahl out means immediate midfield time, been good past weeks

  • Mitchell comes up against the Banfield tag this week. I don’t think he is a lock for captain.

  • Bring Grundy in or Martin and use the 100k elsewhere, cheers
