Hi all Corey Kennedy here, welcome to my first article for DT TALK, I am here to provide details of who is hot and cold for each team, Dream Team wise and some interesting breakevens for the upcoming week and next week. I will also add who to buy or sell. Bit of background info on me, I’m 18 and I’m a massive Essendon fan and work as an assistant pe teacher. You can email me with feedback and ideas on or follow me on twitter @corka23

Well thank god those bye rounds are over and we can get back to some normal footy and normal dreamteams and have a best team on the field which I am really excited about!
So here we go.

Adelaide Crows

Who is Hot:
-Patrick Dangerfield 100 this week and an avg of 96.3 over the last 3 weeks.
-Scott Thompson 107 this week and an avg of 103.6 over the last  5 weeks.

Who is Cold:
-Sam Shaw absolutely killed all of us who had him as bench cover this week 21!!! That hurts a lot but thankfully we can move him to the bench from this week on.
-Kurt Tippett also hurt those who have him this week with only 46 before being subbed off at halftime after looking like he was in for a decent score.

Interesting breakevens for the week.

Van Berlo 129
Sloane 121
Dangerfield 102
Thompson 63
Sam Shaw 29
Porplyzia 63 can still make you some cash for an upgrade.

Brisbane Lions

Who is Hot:

Dayne Zorko 120 this week and averaging of 96 may be a keeper now for the rest of the year.
Tom Rockliff massive 141 this week and averaging of 103 points a game.

Who is Cold:

No one really this week except maybe Adcock only getting 70 and Josh Drummond only scored 79 shows what a great week the lions had in everyway

Interesting breakevens for the week:

Zorko -19 more and more cash for us!
Rockliff 50
Redden 108
Adcock 103

Carlton Blues

No game last week so there isn’t anything to write about them this week. Simpson and Scotland are still averaging over 95.

Interesting breakevens for the week:

Carazzo 131 may go down in price and could be a cheap option next week
Robinson 120
Gibbs 109

Collingwood Magpies

Who is Hot:

There are many to choose from Dane Swan and Dayne Beams continue to dominate and Jamie Elliot provided an impressive 87 for those who had him this week.

Who is Cold:

Marty Clarke ouch! 36 this week and looks like he may miss this week as well we thought that he could be a keeper in our teams but now we may have to think about getting rid of him.

Pendlebury 180 but he is out for this week.
Shaw 125
Sidebottom 94
Beams 74
Clarke 107
Elliot -16

Who is Hot:

Jobe 101 this week which is very good considering he got the dreaded Crowley tag and Stanton started slowly but ended up with 115

Who is Cold:

Pretty good week for the bombers dreamteam wise not many low scores from fantasy relevant players for those who have Angus Monfries he only got 65 and is now out for 4 weeks for with a hammy.

Interesting breakevens for the week:

Watson 108
Stanton 126
Heppell 79

Fremantle Dockers

Who is Hot:

The pav looked like he was in for a big night scoring a goal only 30 seconds in he ended up with 107 also Nick Lower came in from the wilderness and scored a very impressive 115

Who is Cold:

Greg Broughton continues to frustrate owners only 57 this week and was concussed so he may not play this week also, Michael Johnson all I had a shocker with 42.

Interesting breakevens for the week:

Broughton 100
Johnson 114
Duffield 101
Crozier -13

Geelong Cats

Who is Hot:

Chappy got a very nice 118 and Jimmy Bartel brought back memories of when he was a dreamteam must with 118.

Who is Cold:

Stevie J only had 86 which is quite for him and a sub affected 51 from Christensen was a pretty good score considering and Tomahawk only had the 56.

Interesting breakevens for the week:

Smedts 17
Johnson 176
Chapman 120
Christensen 108

Gold Coast Suns

No game last week so no review of the game this week, got West Coast this week in a major challenge

GWS Giants

Who is Hot:

Adam Treloar rewarded those who kept him after last week with a 89 and Taylor Adams impressed with 93, Also Dylan Shiel with 89

Tommy Bugg was thought to be a keeper but now is really struggling with only 43 this week, same with Jon Giles now have us rethinking our ruck structure with 48

Interesting breakevens for the week:

Giles 109
Treloar 88
Smith 67
Shiel 66
Darley 1

Hawthorn Hawks

No game to report on last week, have a massive game against the blues this week in what is a season defining game for both teams

We are hoping that buddy keeps up his huge scores this week against a depleted blues backline.

Interesting breakevens for the week:

Birchall 71
Franklin 132
Mitchell 92
Hill -6
Suckling 85

North Melbourne Kangaroos

Who is Hot:

Patch Adams had a great game and 107 points, Daniel Wells played well for 106 and Todd Goldstein got a very respectable 89

Petrie 33
Grima 22
Gibson -28
Goldstein 86

Melbourne Demons

Who is Hot:

Watts scored a solid 94, Sylvia scored 84 is he back to fantasy relevancy? Could be an interesting f7 option he is very cheap.

Who is Cold:

Moloney 63 for those who have him would not be happy with that and Mitch Clark looked like he was in for a massive score before being subbed on 65 and now out for the year.

Interesting breakevens for the week:

Watts 81
Grimes 67
Sylvia 48
Magner 69

Port Adelaide Power

Had the week off this week and face the cats at skilled this week so don’t look for to many points from Power players this week.

Brad Ebert has been a standout for the Power this year and has been a great pickup for coaches who took the risk.

Interesting breakevens for the week:

Wingard 60
Redden 54
Ebert 104

Richmond Tigers

No game last week and face the Crows this week and will be a massive battle of the midfields

Sydney Swans

Who is Hot:

Kieran Jack had a solid 100 and Jude Bolton had a nice 96 not many massive scores this week.

Hanneberry only had 58 while all those that kept Adam Goodes with be kicking themselves and those who don’t have him will be very happy with the price drop that he will have after only scoring 24.  

Interesting breakevens for the week:

Walsh -14
Shaw 36
Goodes 145
Kennedy 97

Western Bulldogs

Who is Hot:

Cross, Higgins and Griffin had very good games with over 90 for each, while Brain Lake started of on fire but trailed off and ended up with 78

Who is Cold:

Could put the whole team in here as they were just shocking on the weekend, but Matty Boyd who we thought would dominate the Lions including myself and he only managed 70 and Bob Murphy only scored 63 and also Ryan Hargrave who could not even get a game in that team.

Interesting breakevens for the week:

Lake 42
Smith 34
Dickson 14
Boyd 135
Hargrave 103

West Coast Eagles

Who is Hot:

Beau Waters showed that he his a true premium defender he started very slowly but still end up with a massive 126, Cox also struggled early but mustered up 83 and Kerr showed some vintage form and scored 96

Poor games from Darling (65) and Scott Selwood (60) cost some coaches who have them as unique picks while Nic Nat didn’t have a great game also

Naitanui 56
Priddis 95
Waters 87
Cox 113
Kerr 18

      Hey Marcus.

      I would highly recommend you Trade out one of them Fowards Most likely Martin,NRoo,Cloke in that Order Put Zorko on the field use the Cash to trade Giles to Either Maric or Ryder and hopefully have enough cash to upgrade S,Shaw to Someone

      I would recommend you sit. Only 4 trades left with 10 rounds of footy to go is skating on thin ice. Any more trading now and you will risk slipping behind in the finals rounds… exactly when you need those trades. Hold ’em.

    4 trades – 50k

    Deledio, Goddard, Suckling, Waters, Broughton, Enright, Hargrave (Morris, Wilkes)

    Swan, Ablett, Pendlebury, Watson, Jelwood, Mitchell (Gibson, Kennedy)

    Griffin, Krooze (Redden, Campbell)

    Sidebottom, Beams, Buddy, Pavlch, Cloke, Stevie J, Dangerfield (Smedts, Sexton)

    I want to upgrade hargrave but i dont think it is worth the trade. My team could be better but I will have to live.
    Personally, I am worried though about my lack of decent rookies. Plus missed Zorko :(

    Peoples thoughts?

    Wish I went Pendles to Thomo

      4 trades, stop there or you’ll kick yourself come finals time when some of the guns are rested.

      Any if any of your players get an LTI, you’ll give yourself an LTI for trading too often. In fact, you should give yourself an injury for missing the Zorko bandwagon.

    You obviously need to re-read the comments.

    If it still doesn’t click, seek more help.
