Fry’s Cash Cows – Rd. 5

With new dual-position players (DPPs), two more partial lockouts and a handful of fresh cash cows emerging there’s plenty for Fry to talk about ahead of a fast turn around!

  • Avatar

A whirlwind weekend is behind us and by the time you are ready this we’ll be straight back into footy! With new dual-position players (DPPs), two more partial lockouts and a handful of fresh cash cows emerging give us plenty to talk about with a fast turn around forcing coaches to act quickly. Let’s not waste any more time…

Defenders

Get ‘Em

Jack Scrimshaw, Hawks ($371K, 60, BE 26)
Scrimshaw keeps doing his job for coaches, producing on a consistent basis while chaos rules around him. His spot on the field isn’t guaranteed forever, but a fortnight against Carlton and Melbourne moving forward sure is appealing.

Callum Wilkie, Saints ($305K, 76, BE 2)
I’ll be honest, I didn’t see this coming from Wilkie. The Saints mature ager snapped his streak of 40’s with two straight scores in the 70’s offering 16.7% of coaches a viable starter moving forward. I still have some doubts over Wilkie and if you’re a non-owner there are higher priority rooks, however, if he delivers against Adelaide I’ll be forced to change my opinion.

Marty Hore, Demons ($298K, 99, BE -30)
The second most traded in player last week and now the proud owner of the lowest breakeven in the competition, Marty Hore is here to stay. Back-to-back 90’s have him emerging as the must-have defender right now and with his price tag still under $300K, there’s still time hop on the bandwagon.

Sydney Stack, Tigers ($242K, 41, BE -2)
Ding, ding, ding, we have a new defender. Give the influx of relevant talent in our midfield’s, I – much like a bunch of coaches – have flicked Stack into defense for this article. A three-round average of 68.3 means Stack is worth playing on your field today against a Dees side who bleeds points.

Watch ‘Em

Jordan Ridley, Bombers ($384K, 65, BE 34)
The consistency from this man is unreal! The bummer is Round 6 might be the last time he sees a noteworthy price boost should the 65-70 scores continue. Ridley could seize his moment on the Anzac Day stage, but I can’t see him hanging around for too much longer.

Sam Collins, Suns ($320K, 57, BE 27)
Talking about consistency, Collins’ second 57 in a row means he’s still providing coaches with a good emergency option who can make money moving forward. He’ll likely hold his spot in the Suns backline for the entire season and that sky-high job security could see him stay in team’s until after the byes.

Lachlan Young, Bulldogs ($188K, 57, BE 5)
Young showed plenty on debut to warrant a spot in our backline’s – preferably on our benches. Matthew Suckling’s injury setback (2-4 weeks) could see him hold his spot for a few more rounds, but I wonder how he’ll go when Suckling comes back. For now, he looks like a decent money maker for at least the foreseeable future.

Drop ‘Em

Xavier Duursma, Power ($390K, 50, BE 55)
The time has come to axe topped out cash cows and Xavier Duursma might be at the top of the pile. His awesome 101 and 78 to start the season has been backed up by three straight 50’s and he’s in trade thoughts for a lot of coaches this week. A game against North could see him right the ship, but if you can upgrade it’s time for him to go.

Jordan Clark, Cats ($332K, 48, BE 50)
Another popular starting pick is ripe for the picking this week as his breakeven overtakes his projected score. A few coaches may have moved Clark on a week ago and the Eagles this week isn’t exactly a fantasy friendly for the youngster. Zac Tuohy’s return could see him sent to the two’s so it might be wise to be ahead of the curve.

On The Outside Looking In

Isaac Cumming (Giants, $204K) – 33 disposals, nine marks and 128 points surely has Cumming on the cusp of a game. Keep an eye on him.

Jay Lockhart (Demons, $203K) – Returns from injury this week, much to the delight of owners.

Noah Answerth (Lions, $170K) – Hits to the Lions defensive stocks could see Answerth make his debut this round. Going at an average of 53 from three games I’d take a wait and see approach though.

Harrison Jones (Hawks, $170K) – As the injuries continue to pile up for Hawthorn, Jones may be given a chance, but it appears unlikely.

Lachlan Sholl (Crows, $170K) – Another decent game, but still a while off. Second half of the season seems more likely.

Midfielders

Get ‘Em

Sam Walsh, Blues ($552K, 113, BE 20)
His third straight ton came in memorable fashion as Walsh helped the Blues top 100 points for the first time since 1978 (may or may not be an accurate stat). Never leave us Walshy.

Charlie Constable, Cats ($411K, N/A, BE 9)
A week off saw some coaches ditch Constable with an upgrade/downgrade to better help themselves in the long run. If you’re still an owner I’d be slightly concerned of his scoring output against West Coast, but fingers crossed its business as usual for everyone’s second favourite cash cow.

Jackson Hately, Giants ($271K, 84, BE 5)
An awesome debut from Hately has him firmly in the mix for a lot of coaches this week. It will be interesting to see how he goes against the Swans this weekend, but Hately has put up numbers in the NEAFL (97 AVE from 2 games) and SANFL (84 AVE from 12 games) in the past, justifying the thinking behind a lot of coaches trade plans.

Jack Ross, Tigers ($263K, 63, BE -10)
I’m a big fan of the role that Jack Ross is playing for the Tigers right now, so much so that he could even hold his spot in Richmond’s side once Trent Cotchin is fully healthy. According to Fantasy Freako he’s tied with Dion Prestia for the most centre bounce attendances since he came into the side in Round 4. Boardline must have property IMO.

Will Hayes, Bulldogs ($196K, 71, BE -5)
My man crush on Will Hayes talked his debut into existence, with the Dogs mid showcasing his talents right away. He doesn’t have the highest fantasy ceiling, but there’s no doubt Hayes could be a decent cash cow moving forward. If you’re chasing a downgrade target this week, the extra money you can get from landing Hayes is very appealing.

Watch ‘Em

Bailey Smith, Bulldogs ($350K, 69, BE 20)
He doesn’t have a huge ceiling, but there’s a lot to like about Bailey Smith’s fantasy game. In a midfield that boasts a lot of relevant fantasy players, Smith seems to be getting better with every game he plays. He isn’t at the top of the trade targets list, but the 5% who do own Smith can happily keep him in their teams for the foreseeable future.

Michael Gibbons, Blues ($293K, 93, BE 1)
Michael Gibbons finally pieced it all together against the Dogs dropping a career-high 92 on the weekend. He played much further up the ground in Round 5 compared to weeks’ past, giving those who own him cautious optimism moving forward. Either way, he’s not a trade candidate any more and his new FWD status offers coaches another string to their bow.

Tom Atkins, Cats ($290K, 67, BE 10)
Ditto can be said about Tom Atkins who posted another decent score following his miserable game against the Crows in Round 3. Now that Atkins has gained forward status, he’ll prove to be a handy link in between lines moving forward, but fielding him comes with risk.

Drop ‘Em

Luke Davies-Uniacke, Kangaroos ($373K, 54, BE 52)
The time has come to part ways with LDU. There are decent downgrade options out there and the Roos second-year player has had his chances. If you need further convincing Davies-Uniacke has a three-round average under 50. No thanks.

Zak Butters, Power ($363K, 60, BE 44)
By no means do you ‘have to’ trade Butters this week, but he continues to etch closer to being chopped. If moving him on helps you in the long run it’s a wise move, however, a matchup against North and added FWD status could see him hold his spot for another week or two.

Bailey Scott, Kangaroos ($289K, 43, BE 32)
It’s beginning to look like Bailey Scott’s Round 1 score was the anomaly in his box scores. It’s a shame because we were all expected him to reach great heights, but not even a week off could see him top 50 points. Time for him to move along.

Corey Wagner, Demons ($279K, 37, BE 27)
After managing just six touches and 37 points, Wagner has copped the full force of the Demons axe, being dumped from Wednesday’s side to take on Richmond. Given his shaky job security moving him on seems like the right option.

James Rowbottom, Swans ($237K, 60, BE 15)
Some awesome form in the NEAFL saw Rowbottom rewarded with a debut game against Richmond. His inflated starting price saw most coaches avoid Rowbottom and his 60 won’t see his ownership vault anytime soon either.

On The Outside Looking In

Tarryn Thomas (Kangaroos, $283K) – Could come straight back in after being rested, but I wouldn’t go chasing him.

Patrick Wilson (Crows, $278K) – Not even a 136 points, three-goal, 10 tackle game can see Wilson squeeze into the Crows mid-rotation. He’ll need someone to cop an injury to break through at this rate.

Chayce Jones (Crows, $247K) – Could come back from a concussion, but I’d avoid after his earlier scores.

Ned McHenry (Crows, $240K) – Outside chance to make his debut, but I wouldn’t bank on it.

Trent Mynott (Bombers, $170K) – Won’t come in this week, but more scores like the 25-touch, 113 he had last week could see him become a relevant option.

Tom North (Freo, $170K) – Did his chances no harm with a respectable 27 disposal, 88 point outing.

Brett Bewley (Freo, $170K) – 127 points from Bewley could see him put his hand up for selection soon. Freo’s a tough outfit to break into right now, but if he gets a game Bewley is a good downgrade target.

Nick Hind (St Kilda, $170K) – Is still progressing towards a senior berth, but I can’t see him being included this week. Geary’s injury might open the door though.

Nick Shipley (Giants, $170K) – Racked up 32 touches for his 105, but will stay on the outside looking in.

Zachary Sproule (Giants, $170K) – Sproule has his work cut out for him to upseed Toby Greene, who’ll likely come in this week. The rookie small kicked five on the weekend though, giving him 10 goals for the season.

Ruck

Get ‘Em

N/A – No relevant rookie/cash cow rucks are must have

Watch ‘Em

Reilly O’Brien, Crows ($344K, 77, BE 1)
It might be an unwise option to spend all your hard earned cash and chase O’Brien, but with Jacobs going on ice for a month plus, there are crazier moves. Already rising $112K in price those who took a chance on O’Brien on their bench have been rewarded and there’s a chance (albeit a small one) that he’s worth playing on your field moving forward. I wouldn’t have the kahuna’s to pull it off.

Drop ‘Em

N/A – No relevant rookie/cash cow rucks need to be dropped

On The Outside Looking In

Archie Smith (Lions, $217K) Stef Martin continues to struggle and if Archie posts more games like he did on the weekend (17 touches, 26 hitouts, 83 points) he could come in.

Darcy Fort (Cats, $170K) – There’s a chance Fort comes in to support Stanley against West Coast’s two-pronged ruck attack though. However, Fort might be sitting behind Ryan Abbott in the pecking order.

Forwards

Get ‘Em

Connor Rozee, Power ($438K, 62, BE 52)
He’s nearly there, but I’d look to hold Connor Rozee unless you’re moving towards a top-6 FWD/DEF. Rozee put an average game behind him and returned to the 60’s against West Coast and North Melbourne should help him keep the cash generation going for at least one more week.

Willem Drew, Power ($377K, 78, BE 35)
Rozee’s Power teammate Willem Drew performed admirably against the Eagles as well, much to the delight of 61% of the competition. His time is coming, but another good score will likely see Drew survive in our forward lines for a few more weeks.

Gryan Miers, Cats ($353K, 82, BE 11)
Miers’ handy 80 came at a great time for coaches on Easter Monday. A career game from the Cats small boosted his price above $350K, making it difficult for non-owners to bring him in.

Jack Petruccelle, Eagles ($350K, 115, BE -1)
A lot of coaches were caught off guard by Jack Petreculle’s score on Friday night. An enormous 115 from Petra was sitting wasted on a lot of coaches benches, as none of us expected him to go so large against the Power and snag the Rising star nominee for Round 5. He’s a risky play on your field against Geelong this weekend, but he still has room to grow moving forward.

Watch ‘Em

Liam Baker, Tigers ($273K, 74, BE -1)
Two solid scores against decent opponents have Baker emerging on a lot of watchlists. I have some doubts, given his potentially uneasy job security, but he’s doing enough to hold Dan Butler at bay right now. Worth considering.

Brayden Ham, Bombers ($189K, 58, BE 5)
Ham on Good Friday is usually a big no-no, but the Bombers youngster did enough for the handful of teams he came into to warrant a spot moving forward. The tough thing is Essendon might disagree with heavy hitters David Zaharakis and Devon Smith set to come back into the fold this week. If he holds his spot he’s a worthy downgrade target, most likely for your bench.

Mitch Lewis, Hawks ($187K, 56, BE 5)
I’m not convinced that Lewis can hold his spot in Hawthorn’s side this week, but he performed ‘fine’ in his first game for the year. A lot of coaches would have pocketed the cash by snagging Lewis and he could play more games down the line in the latter parts of this season. He’s worth waiting a few more weeks on though, even if he’s named for those coaches who aren’t owners.

Drop ‘Em

Will Setterfield, Blues ($348K, 70, BE 28)
Still suspended and now that you (most likely) have a link to your midfield via Atkins/Gibbons, go ahead and turn Setterfield into Hayes/Hately/Ross.

Matthew Parker, Saints ($308K, 47, BE 48)
A trio of average performances have Parker at the forefront of the rookie/cash cow chopping block ahead of team selections. I can’t blame you, and personally, it’s a move I’m also considering, with the Saints mature ager, failing to top 50 since Round 2. A matchup against Adelaide isn’t likely to see that trend change.

Shai Bolton, Tigers ($252K, 42, BE 20)
Dropped for today’s game and with Liam Baker ahead of him on the depth chart, you can look at moving Bolton on. However, he isn’t a must trade with a re-inclusion to the team leading to some future earnings. I wouldn’t be holding my breath though.

Chris Burgess, Suns ($227K, 24, BE 35)
I didn’t think it was possible for Burgess to get worse, but he continues to astound in his first pro season. Brisbane won’t pose an easier task and I’d look at ditching him ASAP.

Noah Balta, Tigers ($200K, 52, BE 9)
This man has played four games this season and only gained $30K from his starting price. Let the axe swing.

On The Outside Looking In

Lachie Schultz (Dockers, $268K) – Had 27 disposals, but it’s unlikely he earns a recall this week.

Toby Wooler (Lions, $170K) – Wooler’s NEAFL numbers this season are becoming hard to ignore. 125 points and four goals on the weekend keeps him on the watch list.

Josh Corbett (Suns, $170K) – Is definitely in the mix for Gold Coast this week and could be a decent cash grab. Averaging 96 from two games so far this year, but don’t expect him to reproduce those numbers.

Cash Cow King – Round 6

I hate to sound like a broken record, but it’s hard to ignore the piglet yet again. If I had Jack Petrecculle on my field instead of sitting on the pine, I’d give him the nod considering his huge outburst came out of nowhere. However, once again, Sam Walsh proved he’s head and shoulders above the field.

Ranking Rookies

Taking price, scoring potential and job security into consideration, here are my top 3 ranked rookie/cash cow options for Round 6 at each position. It goes without saying that if these players aren’t named in their respective sides then they fall out of the rankings.

DEFENCE

  1. Marty Hore

  2. Sydney Stack

  3. Jack Scrimshaw

MIDFIELD

  1. Sam Walsh

  2. Charlie Constable

  3. Will Hayes

RUCK

  1. Reilly O’Brien

  2. N/A

  3. N/A

FORWARD

  1. Willem Drew

  2. Liam Baker

  3. Gryan Miers

Rookie/Cash Cow Q & A

Let me first go on the record and state that Hately, Hayes and Ross are all great cash cow picks right now and if you can bring in a combination of them this week, by all means, go for it. The extra coin you can pocket by landing Hayes has me making him a priority pick, just slightly over his peers though. Baker is still a fine selection, doing enough in the last two weeks to hold off Dan Butler.

Not a bad play at all. If you can chop out Butters in the MID or Clark/Duurs (sending Stack back) and Parker (sending Atkins/Gibbons forward) I say go for it.

I think getting rid of Parker is the smart play and Dusty does concern me slightly. Although he should go well against Melbourne and become very relevant again, it’s not a terrible move by any means.

I question whether he’ll keep his spot in the Hawks side, but if he does it’s a solid move to land Merrett. 

Hately might have higher scoring potential, but I love Ross’ role right now. A matchup against the Swans could see Hately struggle somewhat, but Ross should be good for a score nudging the 80’s tonight against Melbourne.


Feel free to shoot your rookie/cash cow questions through on Twitter at @SportsbyFry for me to answer in the article. If Twitter isn’t your preferred domain hit me up on Instagram or Facebook and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Good Luck for Round 6!

    2. Duursma and Rozee to Lockhart and Caleb Daniel/Taberner (19k in bank)

    Good read as ever Fry, thanks legend!

    First trade for me this week is J.Clark > Hayes, via Stack DPP. Still working on 2nd trade, likely either Duurs or Burgess in def/fwd respectively.

    2 quick questions if I may:
    1) Any fwd rooks you think to keep an eye out for through the season that haven’t played yet?
    2) gotta field 2 out of scrimshaw, stack and Hore – im thinking Stack and Hore with Scrim wearing the E. Thoughts?

      3) I reckon you’ve nailed it there mate

        From a quick look just now (pending team selection carnage!) I might look at bumping Duurs to B.Smith. good run of games coming, low be, 110% job security and maybe a points bump with milera injured. What you think?

    These 2 5-day rounds (rounds 5 & 6) have killed me. Last week I traded out Atkins, thinking he would be dropped, but he plays well gains $35k and dp status. (I also traded in the Bont – ugh!) This week, without enough in the bank to bring in another premo, I need to get rid of 2 of Burgess, Clark, Duursma & Parker and bring in 2 of Ross, Hore, Hately & Hately. I’m going Burgess & Clark out and Hore & Ross (the best 2 options, I think) in. But I won’t be able to reverse trade when all the rest of the teams come in. Flying blind for the second week in a row. I hate it.

    Thanks, Fry for the update.

    At this stage I’m trading Duursma and Setterfield to Hayes and Daniel.
    I already have Ross, (and also Stack and Hore in def, with Scrimshaw reserve).

    Do you think Hately will still be an option next week if Ross or Hayes disappoint?

    Clark and Parker (both reserves) could be on my chopping board next week. Will be looking for a cheap def or fwd.

    If I go Hayes this week, and Hately goes ok this week, is it too late to get Hately next week?

    Scary thing is, team sheets arent even named yet, could be even more rookie options this week.

      If it means saving to get a top 2-3 premium next week or the week after I think you go Hayes. I don’t think the scoring difference will be that great overall and the end of the day both wont play on your field you would think. I’d be going for cash generation so go the one who’s the cheapest and better be.

    Not sure who to trade, thinking Duursma > Hayes and Parker to Martin.
    My team looks like this:
    DEF Lloyd, Williams, Smith, Hore, Stack, Scrimshaw, Collins Burgess
    MID: Cripps, Treloar, Rockliff, Brayshaw, Cogniglio, B.Crouch, Walsh, Constable, Ross, Duursma
    RUCK: Grundy, Gawn
    FWD: Boak, Dangerfield, Worpel, Rozee, Drew, Petruccelle, Parker, Balta

    Or are there more obvious decisions to be made first?

    Rosee also has the medipack on then app next to him? I can’t find any news as to what’s up, anyone know?

      Butters and setters.

      Depend if you want to hold setter to be on field next week or not, really should have been traded last week.

      Burgess simply hasn’t earnt enough cash, but he might get dropped this week which might change that.

      I think duurs will bounce back to a better score this week, and should reach his BE at least.

        100% agree with Shags, almost not worth using a trade on Burgess atm and Duurs is the best player out of the four

      Why trade out Setterfield now, when you’ve already held him for a week and he’ll be back next round? His JS is very good and his low BE means his price should increase steadily leading into the byes.
      If you’re considering a double downgrade to two new cheap rookies, then take this opportunity to offload Burgess and one of the Port boys I reckon.

        I like the idea of holding Burgess for a week or two.
        Why?
        Everyone else is unloading him / if he bangs out a couple of 70s you’re
        ahead of the game.

      That order looks fine.

      Although biggest issue I have with dusty is you are trading him in before potential teamsheet carnage.

      Mumford BE is 50 and he is scoring 80s so to early to trade him up imo.

      Too early for Libba too imo, and I have reservations on zezza because he has a difficult run including taggers coming up.

    DEF: Lloyd, Whitfield, Smith, Williams, Hore, Scrimshaw (Duursma, Stack)
    MID: Macrae, Coniglio, Cripps, Rockliff, B.Crouch, Libba, Walsh, Constable (Gibbons, Hayes)
    RUCK: Grundy, Witts (Flynn, Fort)
    FWD: Dangerfield, Kelly, Worpel, Parker, Drew, Baker (Burgess, Balta)

    Cash: $328k.

    This is my team after trading Clark (via Duursma) to Hayes.

    Should my second trade be:
    Parker to Dusty? Or do I double downgrade?
    Also if I get Dusty do I VC him or Grundy?
    Cheers

    Who to bench out of Stack or Duursma? (Or Hore or Scrimshaw?) (3 on field)
    Am thinking of playing Duursma as I think he should go back to his first two round form against North.

    Great article! Thanks for the effort and research.

    I’d suggest you’re being a little liberal on the ‘Get ‘Em’ category, however. No way anyone should be considering bringing in Scrimshaw or Rozee.

        Minor pedantic OCD thing of mine as well. Yep I think you need a “Hold em” category for sure.
        Also a unique “keeper” category just for Walsh ;)

    Which 2 of Petrucelli, Miers, and Drew on ground?

    Currently have Petrucelli on the bench. Feels weird having my highest scoring forward from last week on the bench (having missed the score from last week on the bench).

      I’m sticking with Drew and Miers on field, I was in the same position last week. Petra won’t be scoring 115 every week

    Great read fry!

    Things to note:

    McHenry was in a car accident this week. Has been ruled out of all grades. No chance to debut.

    Obrien should be ranked in top category as rookie IMO. Has generated great cash, mega low breakeven with plenty more to make and has scored on par with Mumford around the 75-80. What more could you want from a rookie ruck, great pick up! Should go strong for another month until sauce returns.Then sell!

      I did read that earlier in the week, but clearly went in one ear out the other…
      Yeah that’s a good point about O’Brien, I guess I have him in the second category because of his price, it’s a lot to cough up and place onto a $170K guy to land him. You’re right though he’ll only keep going up, but non-owners have probably missed the boat

    Moving forward, can you use the phrase “moving forward” more times in your article? I only counted 7 and, moving forward, I’d like to see 27.

    My first trade was Clark->Hore. Missed the boat this week using stack DPP to trade out Duurs. Thinking about going Bailey Scott out for Hayes unless there is a better FWD/DEF option to trade Burgess, Duurs or Parker to this week. What do you reckon?

    HELP PLEASE – Supercoach question

    – if i have Jack Ross on bench as emergency got 89, and say B Scott (or similar) is not named can i then bring B Scot on field for ‘0’ and then i get Ross’s score of 89?

    Is similar to captain loophole think ive done it before, obvious fear is another player does not play and you have no cover

      I’m not a Supercoach guru, but the way you’ve explained it sounds like things will work. Obviously like you said it’s a slight risk if there’s a late out, but if Scott isn’t named for North that’s the way to go

    Cant decide…. lol

    McRae BE 143 AV 114 to Henderson BE 68 AV 110

    Or

    Clark to young – this is purely a bench move. Is young worth it for 3-4 wks until suckling comes back?

    Other trade for the week is burton to Whitfield

    Who will generate more money?

      Don’t get rid of Macrae, he’ll deliver any week now and he’s still been scoring tons. Saving some money by going Clark to Young is much better
