Roy’s Trade and Rolling 22 Talk – Rd. 16

Roy updates his Rolling 22 and has a look at some under priced trade targets.

  • Roy

Get them in:

Hamish Hartlett (DEF, $548,000)
The Power defender missed the start of the season due to injury but has now strung the three games together following their bye with his most recent the most impressive. He had a heap of the ball collecting 29 possessions and seven marks for his season high 112. He has a nice break even of just 65 and is nice and unique with an ownership of 1%.

Zak Jones (DEF, $545,000)
The Swan hard nut has been enjoying playing through the middle of the ground and his scoring has reflected that more often than not. Since returning from injury in round 14, Jones has been more than serviceable as a defender with scores of 101 and 97 with 25 possessions, seven marks, four tackles and a goal in his last. He has a break even of 75 and is a viable option for coaches needing an under priced defender to remove a rookie off their ground.

Rowan Marshall (RUC/FWD, $684,000)
With Max Gawn no certainty to play this week, and under priced and form ruck is the way to go. Enter, Saint break out player Rowan Marshall. He has been on fire with a five game average of 111 which include four straight triple figure scores and an impressive 121 against the Tigers. Within the next three games he faces the Cats and Dogs rucks who shouldn’t pose many problems for the big fella who has a break even of 10%. The bonus of Marshall over someone like Riley O’Brien is that he can be moved forward when you want Max back.

Dustin Martin (FWD/MID, $733,000)
Is in some sort of form and as a result comes at a cost, but it is one worth paying up for. He flicked a switch in round nine and hasn’t looked back since with six straight triple figure scores which include a nice ceiling of 135, 140 and 128 in his last. He should have a field day this week against the Suns to blow his BE of 81 out of the water.

Connor Blakely (DEF, $561,000)
Has bottomed out in price, dropping $103 since his round nine season debut. He has certainly been a bit up and down since then but knocked up his first triple figure score on the weekend with 103 despite having just five points at quarter time. He recovered from the slow start and had plenty of opportunities through the middle to end up with 31 possessions, five marks and four tackles to give him a BE of 78.

You… Get the Chop

James Sicily (DEF, $573,000)
Sicily was back in defence but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to snap him out of his rut. He backed up last weeks 44 with a disappointing 59 for his 15% of frustrated coaches. He has dropped $121,000 and has a BE of 132. Personally, I would actually hold him and am eyeing him off as a cheap upgrade once he finds form.

My Trades

At this stage my trades Max to Marshall and Daniel to Jones.

      I like #3. Newnes having been dropped, but being F7 is not scoring anyway, so may as well put it to use making money. Of Chol plays it will be a great price rise this week

    I really can’t see how Melbourne would risk playing Gawn this week when Preuss is in good form in the reserves.

    1. Whitfield and Ellis or
    2. Hurn and crisp

      Whitfield but not Ellis, if you don’t have the extra $13k to get Hurn I’d use the saved cash next week and roll the dice on Williams, Hartlett or Jones, maybe even JJ with Daniel being out.

    My defence is a mess. So it’s out with Daniel (sob) and Hore (thanks for the work). In with Laird and Hartlett. Have to risk a donut from big Max and Whitfield has to wait for his 3rd coming.

    Great article Roy

    Just looking for some advice here

    I can get one of Whitfield, Rocky, Houli depending on Gawn and Danger playing. Who should I target?

    Team is:

    Lloyd, Sicily, Smith, Williams, Duursma, Logue [Stein, Naish]
    J. Kelly, Taranto, Cognilio, Merett, Pendlebury, Fiorini, Gaff, Macrae, [Clarke, Baker]
    Grundy, Gawn [Fort, Cameron]
    Dunkley, Boak, Dangerfield, Moore, Zieball, T. Kelly [Hanrahan, Gardner]

    I have 172K in bank

    Thinking going B Smith to Whitfield or Houli, or even Salem/Crisp, or do I need Rocky?

    Thanks

      Your MID’s look pretty good. I’d leave Rocky for now and shore up your DEF line.

    So I have Ellis and Daniel.

    Thinking of keeping Ellis (first trade rookie to chol) then going Daniel to Whitfield or trading Daniel and Ellis to hurn and crisp. What’s the best idea?

    1. Daniel and rookie (to chol) to Whitfield and keep Ellis or
    2. Daniel and ellis to Hurn and crisp

      Probably can’t go wrong with any of them.
      I’d say, in order:
      Rocky, Kelly, Gaff, Dusty, Whitfield at this stage,
      Only because of BEs

    Surely Roy is trolling here saying Max is one of his trades (at this stage). At most misses a week. i’ll be risking a donut, unless Fort somehow gets a call up.

      Not really, it make sense to me. If Gawn averages 20pts more than Marshall, it will take 5 weeks to make up the list points for taking the donut.

      I don’t think he will average 20 more, so it may even take longer than 5

      Option 1 if Chol is playing (isn’t Jack due back). Would be a big price rise even if he only scores 30
      Then you can do another big upgrade next week

    Get Whit if you can. He’ll be a pod for a few weeks while others are dealing with injuries etc.

    Could you go fort to z.clarke and use him for cover this week for gawn( probably rucking against alir alir) then he could be a cashcow for the next 3 to 4 weeks?

    Gotta love how Caleb Daniel gets injured and loses his spot instantly, yet Whitfield has been sitting in the 22 for four weeks since his injury?

    Does anyone know how long Gawn would be out for?
    And what about Dangerfield??

    Looks like i’ll def have to trade Daniel, if Gawn & Dangerfield are both also out… that changes things…
