Roy’s Trade Talk – Rd 5
Roy has a look at a few trade options this week, while opening up the comments section to discuss your options
Whether it be forced, rage or pure luxury trades, injuries and form have ensured that all categories are relevant this week. Here are some names that I think should be in your thoughts this week:
Heath Shaw- Use the shin injury as an excuse. Where are the rude +6’s?
Jarryd Roughead – Been solid, but doesn’t look like the 85 av we thought he would be.
Toby Nankervis– Done his job, but trade away any time from now.
Sam Powell Pepper – He will be fine to keep, but if you can trade him out as part of a genuine premium upgrade, that’s a good move.
Curtly Hampton– Still has more growth but a downgrade can make $150K now which is handy.
Harley Balic (FWD/MID, $178,000) BE: -7
Josh Daicos (FWD, $150,000) BE: 25
Alex Neal Bullen (FWD/MID, $426,000) Is still playing well above his asking price despite rising by $171K so far this season. He is averaging 102 for the season and is coming off 95 which leaves him with a BE of just 12.
Which big dawg?
Zach Merrett (MID, $710,000) Owned by just 6% of teams, Merrett is having another pig season and we need to be on him asap. He is averaging 125 on the back of 134 this week and looks set for a huge game against the Pies on ANZAC Day.
Rory Sloane (MID, $669,000) Also owned by just 6% of teams, Sloane has taken his game to another level again this year. He is averaging 144 in his last three games and looks unstoppable in the impressive Crows outfit. Has a BE of 71 and offers a little more value than Merrett.
Tom Rockliff (MID, $709,000) Averaging: Who cares? BE: Who cares? coming off: Who cares? One word: OINK.
Josh Kelly (MID, $577,000) If you fall short of the guys above, Kelly is living up to the hype. He is a nice unique pick, currently owned by just 4% of teams despite averaging 117 in his last three games. He has certainly taken his game to the next level again with a secondary break out and carries a BE of just 64 as a result.
Clayton Oliver (MID, $557,000) Despite rising $141K since the start of the year, Oliver is still great value if you can’t reach one of the big boys. He is averaging 117 with a low score of 99 over four games which is very impressive and his tackling numbers are ensuring his score continues to tick over. He has a BE of 61.
As always, use the comment to discuss your trade ideas in the comments, I’m currently:
Hampton to Daicos via DPP

Docherty, Ablett and Neale also coming under consideration for Kelly’s position.
