Roy’s Trade and Rolling 22 Talk – Rd. 3

Roy has a look at some trade options for your team while also updating his highly anticipated Rolling 22.

  • Roy

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.

Listen to the AFL Fantasy Podcast with The Traders at Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Google Podcasts.

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.

My Trades

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.

    Genuinely have no idea what to do this week with trades. Very happy with all of my premo’s and rookies. Any advice would be appreciated

    Lloyd, Laird, Williams, Duursma, Clark, Scrimshaw (Wilkie, Hore)

    Macrae, Treloar, Coniglio, Cripps, Rockliff, BCrouch, Walsh, Constable (Scott, Gibbons)

    Grundy, Gawn (Fort, Cameron)

    Dangerfield, Billings, Setterfield, Drew, Parker, Petruccele (Schultz, Burgess)

    My forward is weak after moving Mundy to Rocky so maybe Powell as an expensive rookie to get a more consistent 60?

      When I have nothing else to worry about, which is rare, I look to bring in rookies for rookies with lower break evens than the ones I have that have a chance to make more cash. So Miers with -10 is a chance, I wouldn’t put him on the ground but he may be an option for Burgess who has a breakeven of 4. Its borderline and could easily bite you, but it wont be big if it does and might bank you an extra $10K.

        Why would you get rid of cripps because of one week being tagged he is one of the top mid to premium costs i wouldnt trade him hard without knowing the test of your team sounds like you dont have sny issues if ya looking to do that

    Struggling to figure out trades this week, happy with my premos, mid-provers and rooks, thinking of two options:

    1. Elliot to Miers(start Parker) and Billings to Boak
    Leaves me with $160k+, don’t necessarily want to trade Billings but only way to get Boak before he gets too expensive

    2. Elliot to Balta(start Parker) and Lobb to Gawn
    Leaves me with $30k

    Leaning towards option 1 as thinking Gawn will still drop in price due to high BE, Boak will become too expensive soon and Miers will most likely make more cash than Balta in long run.

    Any thoughts appreciated!

    1. Dunkley -> Boak (Keep Scrimshaw at D6)

    Already have Worpel & T.Kelly.

    Do I go Heeney to Boak? Don’t really like it cause I think Wines will affect his scoring and midfield time, but my other forwards are already Dangerfield, Kelly and Worpel. Or could go Burgess to forward line bench and get Whitfield but he is susceptible to the tag and that puts Parker on field in the forward line and Scrimshaw on the bench in backline. Thoughts?

    Hey guys.

    Do people like these trades.
    Dunkley to Worpel and Scott to Cousins?
    Don’t really want to trade out Scott as he has a lot of money to make but I feel with the mids coming back for North he could be forced out.

    Across the lines I have 2 DEF, 4 MID, 1 RUC, and 2 FWD and have 2 options to get in a 3rd FWD..

    1. BOAK + $10-20k in for Dunks with Rookie swap for Petruccelle/Scott (170k named player)..

    2. WORPEL + $70-150k in for Dunks with Rookie swap for Burgess/Hore (Scrimshaw or 170k named player)..

    Boak is likely to be Top 6 FWD, but the value of Worpel atm and having that cash for future upgrades is swaying me in his direction..

    Trade dusty ahead of dunkley? they are similar in price, average and BE….
    I’m getting Worpel for either, for the cash, and if worps ends up in my mids, then its just a handy DPP

    And for those of us dumb enough to start with Sauce Jacobs (hey, Matt is included) what are your thoughts on bringing in Sausage Mumford this week???

      Wouldnt go near him with the 666 rule he might get the odd tackle but game will run away from him to slow in my opinion i was thinking phillips and cruizer worries me when he comes back then lycett is going really well over port but will he keep up the hundred scores im trying to get westoff in ruck but hes a bit pricey i have goldy he is being rage traded lol this week but have to be carefull who i pick or just hold goldy for another seek which sees another 30k drop

    Crazy to hold Heeney one more week against Carlton? I Think it’s still too early to trade out who I backed in start of season? Or trade up to any other forward except Dangerfield and Worpel who I already have. Can afford any of them.

    Hey everyone,
    Have a few options and I am not sure what to do, any advice is recommended. I am happy with my Rookies and Premos except for some of my underperforming guys. The top 2 trade targets A. McGrath (Essendon – Def) and J. Dunkley (Bulldogs – Fwd) & +48K

    Trade in:
    Option 1) L. Whitfield (Def – GWS) and W. Powell (Gold Coast – Fwd)
    {AM WORRIED ABOUT W. POWELL}

    Option 2) J. Sicily (Def – Hawks) and J. Worpel (Fwd – Hawks)
    {AM WORRIED ABOUT J. SICILY}

    Option 3) J. Crisp (Collingwood – Def) and J. Worpel (Fwd – Hawks)
    {AM WORRIED ABOUT J. CRISP}

    Hi All
    I’m super stumped on my second trade this week. I feel I have all the rookies I want and they haven’t fattened up enough and want to back them in again.

    My only thought would be to trade Taranto (95 Breakeven and Kelly back this week) to Worpel. But not too confiwcon on this trade.
    I traded Heeney to TKelly
    Other thoughts are witherden, but to who?

    $7k in the bank!
    DEF: Lloyd, Whitfield, Sicily, Withered, Williams, Scrimshaw (Burgess and Lockhart)
    MID: Treloar, BCrouch, Rocky, Libba, Sheed, Taranto, Walsh, Constable (Scott, Butters)
    RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Fort, Cameron)
    FWD: Danger, TKelly, Setterfield, Parker, Rozee, Drew (Petrucelle, MLewis)

    My FWD line is weak as, bringing Worpel in (as mid) may help

    Help please?!
