Another massive week of Fantasy that has left us with plenty of trades to explore.

Get them in:
Travis Boak (FWD, $717,000)
Is the number one target this week after another dominant performance where he scored 138 to give him an average of 141 to lead all players. In a spluttering forward line for many coaches, Boak is a breath of fresh air given he is outscoring the midfielders which no one saw coming. He is in career best form and I am not concerned about Ollie Wines return to the side.
James Worpel (FWD/MID, $531,000)
If you didn’t start with the Worpedo, surely you have seen enough and lucky for you he is still way under priced. The price and forward status make the Worp one of the biggest priorities in the game, especially as the experienced Hawk mids continue to succumb to injury. He has another outstanding game, scoring 97 which leaves him with a break even of 46. He still has only 29% ownership so jump on.
Tim Kelly (FWD/MID, $662,000)
Is off to a flying start to the season, averaging 110 after scoring 111 on the back of his second dominant performance from two. The time is now to jump on the star Cat who sits at 26% ownership and carries a break even of 75. Even when faced with the negative attention from the opposition, he doesn’t miss a beat. All class.
Lachie Neale (MID, $742,000)
Came under serious consideration for many coaches this pre season but the main concern was the lack of ceiling we have seen from him in recent years. Judging by the weekends effort, he may have rectified that issue with an impressive return of 146. He is a nice unique pick with an ownership of just 8% which is set to increase after his 43 possession, seven marks and six tackles effort.
Brad Crouch (MID, $580,000)
The Crow ball magnet is scoring like an elite premium but is still available for a bargain price. He pumped out another 109 to maintain his season average and has increased by 54K as a result. Despite that, the fact a star performer like this is available for under 600K with a break even of 48, it’s worth jumping on before he is out of reach.
You… Get the Chop
Josh Dunkley (FWD/MID, $658,000)
Has to be traded, even despite his match up with the Suns this week. The return of Tom Liberatore has had a greater impact than Dunks Fantasy coaches anticipated and after being given two weeks to show something… he hasn’t. Following his score of 68 on the weekend, he is averaging 74 over two games, reflective of his first half of the season last year, not his fruitful second half. He has dropped 37K and with a break even of 126, he is set to drop again unless something drastic happens.
At this stage I am looking to get Boak in for Dunkley. I am fearful Roos rook and week one hero, Scott will lose his spot with Ahern and Anderson knocking on the door, so he could find himself as part of the transaction.
Update following round two. Read last week’s by clicking here.
Sydney Swans, DEF
Absolute machine, clear number one, must have.
GWS Giants, DEF
Showed what happens when he is let off the chain.
Rory Laird, DEF
Solid as a rock despite the large number of respected ball users in the Crows backline.
Had a shocker, but that happens with most defenders. Will make up for it.
Forced his way in with that ceiling. Plenty of marks going around at the Pies.
Hanging by a thread with Tom Stewart rightfully throwing his hands up in the air.
In the mix: Tom Stewart
Western Bulldogs, MID
Back to number one, just doing his thing. Very games on the upcoming fixture.
Loving the extra space, dominating as a result. Also may cop Hutching attending instead of Sidebottom as a result.
GWS Giants, MID
Couldn’t handle the Hutchings attention. Needs to bounce back this week.
Showed his class by saving a quiet game with a big last quarter.
Port Adelaide, MID
Was on track for another monster before copping a Setterfield tag after half time.
Had a great game despite getting flogged at the Cattery.
Has a nice draw ahead, still under-priced as a result.
In the mix: Lachie Neale
Good to see the big fella back.
In the mix: Nil
The attention is going to Tim Kelly in the middle… Dangerous times for non owners.
Port Adelaide, MID/FWD
Finally back in the midfield and in an uncustomary Fantasy friendly game plan.
Another amazing performance through the midfield, make sure you have him.
Reputation can only keep him here for so long.
Wasn’t great conditions for the Hoff on the weekend.
Even more important in the Hawks injury riddled midfield.
In the mix: Luke Dahlhaus
