Roy’s Trade and Rolling 22 Talk – Rd. 6

It’s a short turn around and DPPs have dropped! It’s all happening including some significant changes to the Rolling 22.

  • Roy

Get them in:

Zach Merrett (MID, $707,000)
After flagging it last week, yes you are welcome, Merrett remains a priority trade target as an under priced premium. He appears to be back in the form that has had him locked in the rolling 22 in the past after backing up his 128 with a dominant performance against the Roos where he collected 39 possessions and laid an impressive eight tackles for 143. He won’t be this cheap again this season, but I do need to flag his restrictive opposition this week, the Pies aren’t giving up much, as we saw with in form star Lachie Neale last week.

Will Hayes (MID, $196,000)
Will be a popular downgrade target this week and rite-fully so after making a seamless debut. The mature ager looked like he had played at the top level for years, highlighted by his ability to find open space which resulted in seven marks. He gathered 21 possessions and should avoid the reactionary changes that are set to come after losing to the Blues. If you are after a MID, also consider the highly credentialed Fantasy junior Jackson Hately (MID, $271,000) who made a nice score of 84 on debut as a replacement for Callan Ward. He has an inflated priced but is built for Fantasy and has good job security.

Brad Sheppard (DEF, $631,000)
Continued his awesome form and looms as a unique replacement for coaches of Wayne Milera who will miss the next four to six weeks. His 110 from 26 touches, seven marks and four tackles came as no surprise given his form line since the start of the season which read 85, 91, 95, 113 prior to last round.

Marty Hore (DEF, $298,000)
Although he now has an inflated price tag, he needs to be a high priority cash cow after another 90+ score, his latest from an impressive 13 marks to go with 20 possessions which resulted in a score of 99. There is also the added intensive that he plays the Tigers this week who give up a heap of marks to defenders.

Dustin Martin (FWD/MID, $597,000)
I can’t say for certain whether he is back, but I can confirm that he is a big name, with a big ceiling and coming off a big game… Oh and a forward now. Dusty looked his old self despite copping plenty of attention from the in form George Hewitt by gathering 25 possessions and kicking three goals on his way to 110. The only concern is that he need three goals to get there but his potential alone has him in the mix for the F6 spot in the rolling 22.

You… Get the Chop

Lachie Hunter (MID, $736,000)
Was one of many Dogs to have a shocker as many of the reliable mids at the kennel found themselves playing unfamiliar roles to what we are used to seeing. Coming into the game, he was on many coaches radar as a unique premium after scoring four hundreds since the start of the year with a low of 94 but he managed just 65 against the Blues despite taking six marks. Although I would recommend giving him another chance, the Dogs role clarity is a real concern so monitor closely. He has a BE of 143.

      I already have Hayes so I chose Hately. Definitely has the best job security of the 4. Even if I didn’t have Hayes I’d go Hately.
