Heading toward Finals, we want the blokes in the rolling 22. I will have a look at one from each line to consider this week.
Jack Crisp OUT Gus Brayshaw IN
Who to bring in? Angus Brayshaw (DEF/MID, $677,000) is still found in less than a quarter of teams, so there is a fair chance he will be a unique in your league match ups… Well at least three a month haha, and you need to take advantage of that. The fact he is available in defence, despite his ball winning role through the middle places him in the must have category. He has a BE of 101, so his price will be steady for a couple of weeks although his three game average of 111 suggests there is still some growth, especially considering his match up with the Dogs this week who he scored 133 on in round 11. He has one bad score in nine weeks (one of which was a random tag experiment) and his only other score under 100 in that time was an 80 back in round eight.
Stephen Coniglio OUT Joel Selwood IN
Ablett OUT Dayne Beams IN
Who to bring in? Dayne Beams (MID, $706,000) is a great unique to own in the run toward finals. He is currently owned by only 5% of teams despite his thumping three game average of 119. His numbers have been ridiculous since round eight, with two poor games of 50 and 69 but every other outing has been full on Beamer beast mode, rivalling anyone else in the competition. Discounting those two games, he has not dropped under 112 in that time and has surpassed 120 on four occasions with a top of 137. He loves playing at the Gabba and has three games remaining there including a nice match up with the Eagles for the Fantasy GF.
Who to bring in? Good luck finding the cash, but a trade to Brodie Grundy (RUC, $806,000) has to happen at some stage, basically for any ruckman other than Max Gawn. His numbers are ridiculous, averaging 121 for the season and 125 in his last three and he hasn’t dropped under triple figures since round one… Can you believe that? What a reliable legend. His number reek of a Pig, but I’m not sure we have a snout to fit him. He has three scores under 110 for the year, what more can I say apart from oink.

Ed Langdon OUT Sic Dawg
Luke Breust is currently being disrespected but you couldn’t do it.
Who to bring in? The Sic Dawg, James Sicily (DEF/FWD, $636,000) finally finds himself a spot in the rolling 22, albeit as a forward. The Hawk defender has become a mark of consistency (yes, I know) while increasing by 113K to this point in the season. He is averaging 100 for his 28% of coaches over the last five weeks and he hasn’t gone under 90 in that time. In a promising sign, he hasn’t missed a game since round six and is in nice form coming off his second highest score for the year with 118. He has a nice stretch of games in the coming weeks with the Lions in Tassie, followed by the Blues and Dockers. His break even of 83 suggests he won’t be this cheap for long.
Ironically, my trades don’t include a rolling 22 player but are as follows:
McInerney and Fritta OUT
Abbot and Pendles IN
