Roy’s Trade and Rolling 22 Talk – Rd. 14

Roy has a look at some prime trade targets leading into the last round of the byes

  • Roy

Get them in:

Josh Dunkley (FWD/MID, $745,000)
The star Dog is on fire and once again deserving of the number one trade target mantle. He has a five round average of 120 on the back of an impressive 154 against the Blues and he has one score under 119 in his last six games… coincidentally the same time he returned to the midfield. He has a break even of just 74 and is surprisingly only owned by 25% of the competition. Clearly in the must have category.

Andrew Gaff (MID, $797,000)
The Eagles running machine is the pick of the players coming off the bye, albeit at top dollar. He is one of the most reliable elite premiums with an average of 115 and one of the easiest runs home in the competition for midfielders. He has been on a mission this year with only three scores under 100 and no scores under 90. He is on a streak of 15 hundred point games at home and has the added bonus of being able to carry the VC in a round where some of the games biggest midfielders have the week off.

Angus Brayshaw (MID, $599,000)
After a four week stretch of not scoring over 75, the Demon looked lost out on a wing and his scoring reflected that and as a result his price is now lower than Blues rookie sensation Sam Walsh. The past two weeks have looked far more promising however with scores of 91 and a 130 that reflected the way he played in the second half of last year. He has a break even of 68 and is certainly a high risk high reward prospect for a cash strapped coach.

Griffin Logue (DEF, $254,000)
After an injury interrupted start to the season the Docker defender exceeded all expectations with 100 in his first game of the year. He had a massive first quarter and finished the game with 24 possessions and eight marks. He isn’t going to pump out those numbers every week but his job security and scoring potential certainly make him a high priority trade target.

Caleb Daniel (FWD/DEF, $633,000)
After a random two game slump in the 60s, the Dog defender has bounced back well with three scores over 100 highlighted by 112 last round. He has a break even of 63 and a low ownership of just 11%. He has a unique and handy DPP between the forward and back line which may be useful for coaches who own Ryan Gardner.

You… Get the Chop

Sam Walsh (MID, $600,000)
The Blues rookie has already proven to be a star calibre talent and a bonus of that has been his amazing Fantasy impact, averaging 92 and increasing by $330K. To think we were criticised for recommending coaches pay the extra $100K looks really bad now. As much as I would love to keep him the time is right to upgrade to a top tier premium.

My Trades

At this stage my trades Baker to a rookie and Walsh to Gaff… I have no idea beyond that.

    Mitch Duncan is every bit as good a pick as Gaff, but getting nowhere near the attention. Geelong also have a sensational run home, huge POD for the back half of the season

    Tom Stewart would have to be in the mix to be a top 6 defender?

      June 18, 2019 at 7:49 pm

      Stewart has been in and out of the top 6.

    June 18, 2019 at 7:45 pm

    Final trade, should I go Balta to Macrae or Stack to Gaff?

    Stack would likely be my D6 next week if I don’t trade him as Brodie Smith is also out the door this week.

      Gaff is expensive, but you are likely to get what you pay for. Macrae is dirt cheap, but high risk. I got Gaff in a few weeks ago and I know I can forget about him, apart from considering whether to make him Captain. You won’t have to worry about whether or not to make Macrae Captain as there will always be safer bets.

      Don’t like the Blakely plan. So far this year has been well down on the form of 2017.

    If Hanners is named, I would be thinking about bringing him in. Not sure about Crispy

    Who would you choose to bring in for Brodie smith. Crisp, Salem or Stewart? Already have Lloyd, Hurn, Daniel, Houli, Laird. 642k to spend so can’t afford Sicily if I wanted him.

    I have 16 of the rolling 22 in my side. I don’t count Whitfield as you really shouldn’t have him at the moment, so that means 17 out of the 22 (or 16 out of 21 depending how you look at it).

    I also have Marshall in the forward line and Tom Stewart in the back line. To me, that puts me four players shy of having 22 premiums on the ground.

    I’m currently in 14,699 in the overall rankings. I actually think I’ve had a good season so far, but I’m so far out of contention it’s not funny.

    Not to have a dig at the leaders, but I really think this season has been very dependent of marginal choices.

    This has been an enjoyable season so far, but really, really cutthroat.

      June 19, 2019 at 9:03 am

      It’s because not everyone finds these the best players for each position with all due respect. I only have 12 of these players & am sitting in the top 1000. But you’re right very marginal choices can make a big shift in rankings

    Thoughts on Fyfe? Without the injury affected score he’s averaging 109, which is basically top 8. 8 of his 10 completed games are 100+, 5 of which are 119+. Very under rated selection imo. As reliable as the likes of Gaff and 60k less

      I also wouldn’t be trading in R Gardner, as I think there’s a fair chance he gets dropped this week

    Sydney Stack out Shannon Hurn in

    June 19, 2019 at 4:42 pm

    1. Good Call
    2. Henderson is hitting good form now, but record over the distance not as good as other available premiums. Arguably not the best call; but your call.
    3. Good Call

      Stack >> Logue
      Walsh >> Walters (fwd DPP)
      Then thinking Merrett >> Macrae (nets 100k, Merrett has hard run, I back Macrae to average more than Merrett next 5 weeks
      Or last trade: Fort >> 170k ruck, nets 58k.
      Thoughts on Merrett >> Macrae?

    Which option would you go for?
    1. Walsh to Brayshaw and Brodie Smith to Stewart
    2. Walsh to Brayshaw and Rocky to Duncan
    3. Walsh to Macrae and Rocky to Luke Parker (last 5 average of 113 against hard teams with Sydney having really easy fixtures for the rest of the year)
    Other trade locked in is Stack to Dangerfield

      Stack out over Hore, Hore will play this week.
      I’d go Gaff over Duncan but I’m a Gaff owner and would love Duncan in my team which has been weighed down by the inconsistent Coniglio and the shithouse but promising now Brayshaw all year.
