Roy’s Trade and Rolling 22 Talk – Rd. 7

Roy isn’t one to chase unique options for the sake of it but he has three blokes worth considering. He also made significant changes to his Rolling 22 on the back of fellow coaches wanting the axe swung.

Get them in:

Caleb Daniel (FWD/DEF, $627,000)
Daniel has continued his consistent season and of course gained valuable flexibility with defender status. In the last five weeks he has dropped under 90 on just one occasion with 86 and has an awesome match up this week if you are after instant reward against the Tigers who have given up huge numbers to half backs this season. He has a break even of 84 and looks set for a season high.

Taylor Adams (MID, $654,000)

I am never one to chase a unique for the sake of it, but I am calling the next three blokes the 1 %ers (1% ownership). All of the genuine unique options and two of them tick  boxes… One is fraught with danger.

The hard working Pie MID has had an interrupted start to the season but looks to have hit his straps while bottoming out in price. He has a break even of 95 on the back of his 120 and as a bonus, has only 1% ownership. He loves the match up this week against Port with scores of 111, 139, 111, 128 and 124 in his last five against the teal.

Brad Ebert (FWD/MID, $681,000)
In unconventional fashion, the former midfielders move forward has reinvented himself as an elite scorer, averaging 101 so far this season. His consistency has been fantastic with only one score under 95, while also displaying a nice ceiling with two scores over 120. Apart from the Pies game this week, he has a favourable run of opponents who give up plenty of Fantasy points in the Crows, Suns, Hawks and Saints leading into the bye. He has a BE of 104 and scored 94 and 97 in his last two against the Pies, albeit in a different role.

Toby Greene (FWD, $589,000)
Returned for just his second game of the year and in true Toby fashion, dominated the Swans for three goals and seven marks while scoring 103. He has the easiest draw in the business leading up to the byes with games against the Saints, Hawks, Blues, Dees, Suns, Crows and Roos so the only questions is whether he can stay on the park. My gut feel is no, which is unfortunate because if I can convince myself otherwise, I would be all over this move. That draw, for a guy like Greene is a mouth watering prospect.

Noah Answerth (DEF/MID, $198,000)
Is the pick of the downgrades this week after exceeding expectation with an impressive seven mark, five goal performance for 75 points. He is a great bench option, that also provides flexibility with his DPP while carrying a BE of -7.

You… Get the Chop

Tom Liberatore (MID, $587,000)
On the surface it looks good, an average of 92 at a price under $600K but looks can be deceiving and what we have seen the last two weeks is a huge concern. After a brilliant start to the year, including a three game stretch of 106, 119 and 108, like all Dog mids he has lost the plot, only he is the worst by a long shot. Despite attending 20 centre bounces against the Dockers, he managed just 57 point which included only one tackle and this was on the back of a disappointing 72 the week prior. He has an easy match up this week against the Tigers but has done his dash with me despite an attainable BE of 103.
