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.
At this stage my trades are Liberatore and Tom Atkins to Caleb Daniel and Noah Answorth.
Update following round five. Read last week’s by clicking here.
GWS Giants, DEF/MID
Unlucky cork severely restricted him this week.
Sydney Swans, DEF
As predicted, first score under 120for the year.
His junk time against the Eagles made him even more tempting to bring in.
Been consistent without being his outstanding self.
I think it’s time to get on the Sic Dawg.
West Coast, DEF
Credit where credit is due, his last three weeks have been fantastic with an average of 118.
In the mix: Christian Salem, Bachar Houli, Brandon Ellis, Alex Witherden
Hasn’t been the best couple of outings but his newfound number one status is reflective of the lack of options.
Similar to Neale, not his best couple of weeks but still moves up.
In outstanding form and remains a unique option.
GWS Giants, MID
Concerns about the hand injury, but keeps getting it done apart from one blemish.
Port Adelaide, MID
Pig keeps getting tagged, ready to go really big in the next few weeks. Has a great run to the bye after the Pies game this week.
Has been disappointing of late, but is doing enough to hold.
West Coast, MID
Big game on the cards this week on the back of ridiculously good history at home.
Western Bulldogs, MID
Message sent with a drop from one to eight. Only attended 15 centre bounces last week but needs to pull his finger out regardless.
In the mix: Brayden Fiorini, Zach Merrett, Dylan Shiel, Tim Taranto
Did his job last week, clear number one obviously.
After passing his first true test vs a recognised ruck last week, Witts is genuinely putting pressure on Max.
In the mix: Jarrod Witts, Ben McEvoy
Huge game against the Eagles and will be in the mix for skipper duties this week.
Port Adelaide, MID/FWD
Bounced back beautifully after a tough outing last week.
Star, just keeps getting it done, regardless of negative attention.
Port Adelaide, MID/FWD
A role change has worked wonders for Ebert and his draw after the week is outstanding.
St Kilda, FWD
Draw starts to get a bit harder from here, will be a true test to see whether the new role is enough.
Western Bulldogs, DEF/FWD
Consistency is being rewarded here and a great match up for half backs vs the Tigers this week is the cherry.
In the mix: Isaac Heeney, Gary Ablett, Jack Newnes
