Roy’s Trade and Rolling 22 Talk – Rd. 11

Roy has a look at his top five upgrade targets and is confident his Rolling 22 is the best yet! Use the comments section to discuss your trade ideas.

  • Roy

Get them in:

Lachie Whitfield (DEF/MID, $805,000)
The running machine continued his fine form scoring 120 against the Demons to help break the MCG hoodoo. He is having a season for the ages with only one score below 104 and that was where he was injured. His ceiling is phenomenal with two scores over 160 already this year and a third in that vicinity is on the cards with a dream matchup against the Suns in Sydney this week.  He is owned by 35% of the competition and has a low break even by his standards at 114.

Josh Kelly (MID, $780,000)
The Giant superstar has hit his straps and remains a perfect POD with only 6% ownership. After missing the first two rounds of the season, as well as one in round seven he hasn’t looked back with scores of 115, 120 and 135 since that break. He hasn’t scored under 100 this year and has only one score under 114 in his last six weeks and that was 106, so as you can see… Like Whitfield, he is having some sort of season. His games leading up to the bye are set to ensure more massive scores with the Suns, Crows and Roos who are all giving up huge numbers to opposition midfielders.

Dustin Martin (FWD/MID, $620,000)
Does this come with risk? Given his recent history… Yes, but who cares! Dusty has ticked so many boxes the past two weeks that I am giving the green light to lock it in. Not only is he back in the middle dominating and not relying on goals to reach triple figures, the Tigers are playing a much higher scoring brand of footy and Dusty’s numbers reflect that. In the past two weeks he has collected 37 and 35 possessions respectively for returns of 135 and 109. He has a break even of 62 and has the round 14 bye which is handy to help navigate the first two rounds.

Elliot Yeo (MID, $752,000)
The Yeo-Yeo’s string is tangled and it’s stuck right up the top. His tackling the last four weeks is something to behold, laying 49 in that time while averaging 129. He is a great unique option, owned by just 5% of the competition and holding a BE of 80 leading into what is the easiest run home for midfielders in the whole competition. After overcoming a slow start to the year he has gone over 130 three times in the last four weeks, so jump on and enjoy the ride, even if it does include the odd untangled dip.

Andrew Gaff (MID, $800,000)
Like Yeo, has the pick of the draws for midfielders for the rest of the season and is my number one ranked player in that position. He comes at a greater cost than Yeo, but also classifies as a safer selection as he has not registered a score below 90 this year. In the last four weeks he has a low score of 108 while going 120 or over on three occasions including a high of 144 in that time. His intent is evident this season and I love the fact he spends so much time on ground as we saw on the weekend when he played 90% which is really high for a hard running midfielder. He is owned by just 12% of the competition so he can still give you a leg up on the majority of the competition.

You… Get the Chop

Angus Brayshaw (MID, $597,000)
Angus has dropped $166K and scored 65, 76, 65 and 75 in his last four. I have nothing else to say.

    Here’s hoping rocky and m.crouch play 🤞
    Trades would be
    1.Collins/jross to bewley
    2.Newnes/brayshaw to j.kelly/taranto (leaning towards j.kelly)

    Who is priority to trade out of newnes and brayshaw as both are losing money at a rapid rate? Or should i just trade both out this week?

    Which 2 to trade out of these 3:
    Walsh (field), Rozee (field) Drew (bench)

    And then who to bring in:
    Yeo, Gaff, Taranto, or J.Kelly

    Bye structure is fine regardless.

      fix some of your rookies, maybe get rid of any 2 who arent likely to play in the next couple weeks for new guys, and get some money in your bank. Will also help with cash generation

      shuey is ok, not a top 10 mind by any means. will avg 105 at most this year. Id probably bring in dunkley or dusty this week, keep them mid for now and move them forward in the future when you wanna make trades there

    With Rocky potentially on a sightseeing holiday, is it worth doing a sideways trade to Henderson, who has a BE of 80, to chase some dosh, or spend a little more and get Zerrett, who would then be a set and forget midfielder? I have very few round 12 bye players, and I was going to keep Rocky through the byes, so I don’t think Zerrett not playing in round 12 will hurt much.

    My Team:
    DEF: Whitfield, Lloyd, Smith, Hore, Duursma, Stack (Scrimshaw, Answerth)
    MID: Duncan, Merrett, Rockliff, B.Crouch, Macrae, Cripps, Walsh, Gibbons (Drew, Baker)
    RUCK: Grundy, Witts (Fort, Flynn)
    FWD: Boak, Dangerfield, Kelly, Worpel, Dusty, Baker (Young, Corbett)

    Cash: $114k.

    Currently I’m going Scrimshaw to Hinge and Drew (via Stack) to Laird leaving 20k. Thoughts on these trades? Or Any other options, cheers.

    Who is likely to cop a Hutchings tag? I reckon it is Macrae. I am considering trading, thought?

    Macrae & Brayshaw> J Kelly & Yeo anyone? I would have to field Bewley though…

      Dont be surprised if Eagles dont tag this week. They took hutchings off the ball in the second half and stopped tagging sloane to allow an extra mid ball winner to attend CBD’s. Once this happened eagles started to dominate the clearances and then the game. Sloane did get off the chain, but so did the likes of Yeo, Shuey, Redden and Sheed. I wouldnt be at all surpirsed it Hutchings gets dropped for this game as if hes not shutting someone down, probably not best 22.

      honestly I dont see him tagging macrae, maybe bont or hunter idk but not macrae. Id keep macrae for now, hes been averaging 105 for the whole year and hasnt gone under 90 till this last game.

      personally im waiting for him to have a bye to maybe trade him out then

        his last game was the final straw. between Macrae and Brayshaw they have lost about 450k in value. I have had enough…4 out of 5 weeks Macrae hasn’t tonned. Brayshaw has scored 2 60s and 2 70s in that time. WB v WC, they’ll get slaughtered…I need WC cover, don’t have any. MEL v ADE, same again

          the funny thing is Brayshaw & Macrae> Yeo & J Kelly, gives me 18 on the field for the 1st round of the byes, before the 3 trades for that round. it sets me up perfectly…GWS have got GC as well…

    This may sound insane but, is it worth holding Will Hayes (already on my bench) and trading out Walsh and Lockhart for Josh Kelly and Bewley??? Allows me to get in a mid who fits bye structure better (can’t afford anyone from later byes if I go Hayes to Bewley) and leaves more cash.

    Really need help on this, it sounds crazy but might actually help long term. Thoughts????
