Get them in:

Toby Greene (FWD, $664,000)
The controversial Giant has always been a Fantasy favourite of mine and it’s easy to see why after getting his body right and being given the opportunity to play through the middle of the ground on the back of his teams injury woes. He now has a three game average of 128 on the back of scoring 126, 115 and 144 in his last three. His value is reflected by a break even of just 55 and he is owned by only 5% of the competition.

Kade Simpson (DEF, $521,000)
Here is one for cash starved coaches that need a mini upgrade in the back line. The Blues veteran has dropped a total of $171k which is understandable given his massive score of 142 was his first triple figure return of the season. The Blues are in awesome form and with a score of 90 a fortnight ago and a break even of 27, it is a risk worth taking.

Seb Ross (MID, $613,000)
Last year he was winning people cars, this year he has dropped $166k. That was until he was until he pumped out a massive 146 on the weekend to increase by $22k and give him a BE of 69. He has a low ownership of just 1% and has a decent run of games including a match up with the Crows this week who have been giving up a heap of points to opposition midfielders.

Dom Sheed (MID, $702,000)
Last year’s finals hero is heating up leading into Fantasy finals. He is in great from with a three game average of 115 and the Eagles have an easy run of midfield matchups on the way home. He is quite unique at 10% ownership if you are chasing a leg up for national ranking and he certainly presents as a viable POD.

Patrick Cripps (MID, $633,000)
After appearing sore against the Suns a couple of weeks ago and looking destined for another break on the sidelines, the inspirational skipper returned to his best against the Crows with a dominant 141. The Blues are in outstanding form and he is a bargain price for one of the best players in the competition who has a 160+ ceiling.

You… Get the Chop

Jack Ziebell (FWD, $625,000)
After seven triple figure scores in ten weeks following a move to the midfield, the tough as nails Roo’s scoring has dropped right off with a three game average of just 67. His break even is up to 139 and it doesn’t look like things will turn around any time soon so upgrade him to a reliable premium.

My Trades

At this stage my trades are Matt Crouch to Adam Treloar and a cash grab from rookie Baker.

      Maybe because he has the fifth highest average for a Ruck? Behind Grundy, Gawn, Witts & Marshall

    Thoughts on Prestia as a POD coming into finals, not much talk about him?

      With Cotch out for a couple of weeks he should be a good pod.

    This weekly post seems to be ‘flavour of the week’, with whoever happened to score well on the weekend promoted to be selected to your team, with absolutely no long-term reasoning involved. No wonder Roy is not doing so well.

      im amazed at the restraint in not just putting Cripps straight back into M8 after one good score.

      Yet no Cripps, no Seb Ross, and T Stewart retains with a 73? Your logic makes absolutely no sense, flog

    Who is the best defender option at less than 672k?

      Stewart > Salem/Newman > Daniel (awful fixtures for a defender in the last 4)
      Stewart for me if you don’t already have
      Toss a coin between Salem and Newman
      I’d pick Newman though, better recent form

      If I’ve calculated correctly you should be fine by 3k in making those trades
      Gives you a full line of decent players through defence/midfield/ruck and forward line

    Want to shift Whitfield from MID to DEF so I can bring in a premo MID, but really struggling to decide which DEF to move on from Lloyd, Laird, Z Williams, B Smith, Salem, Crisp. 2 weeks ago I was sure it would have been Smith, but not sure now with his increased time playing in the midfield. Thoughts?

    Got 3 upgrade options this week:
    1. Brayshaw -> Ross
    2. Lycett -> Gawn
    3. Ziebell -> Greene

    Which one you got?

    Ziebell & Witts —> Ross (DPP Danger) & Gawn

    Or

    Ziebell & Jarrod Cameron —> mid under $730k (?yeo) & Langlands

    Currently leaning 1 as I still have Logue, Hind, Snelling (and Cameron) to cull so may not need Langlands cash gen.

    Thoughts?
