Roy’s Trade and Rolling 22 Talk – Rd. 21

Roy has a look at some players to help you get your hands on the cup and updates his Rolling 22.

  • Roy

Get them in:

Toby Greene (FWD, $717,000)
Greene continued to make the most of his long awaited return to the midfield with another dominant performance that saw him increase another $53K this week. He is now averaging 122 over the last five weeks on the back of the weekends 146 which is incredibly valuable for a player listed as a forward. He is still nice and unique at just 8% ownership and has a BE of 55 to ensure his price continues to skyrocket on a weekly basis.

 Zac Williams (DEF, $680,000)
The Giants running defender is another one embracing the opportunities through the middle of the ground for the injury plagued Giants with with a three game average of 119 on the back of a whopping 142 on the weekend. There is always concern about what happens once Josh Kelly returns but its hard to see him dropping off too much with five triple figure scores in his last seven games. He has a break even of just 74 and is certainly one of the top defenders in the competition.

Rory Laird (DEF, $655,000)
The Crows star defender has been well down on what we came to expect in his most recent seasons however the signs were great in the first week of finals. After a drought of five games without a triple figure return, Laird finally looked himself again against the Saints with an impressive 134. He has a great run of game, starting with the Eagles who Nic Newman had 135 on.

Marcus Bontempelli (MID, $697,000)
The Bont is heating up. Following a three game stretch of triple figure scores between rounds fourteen and sixteen, Bont dropped off to average about 75 over the next two. Fortunately for his owner, he has bounced back hard, really hard to the point he has hit season best form at the perfect time. He is coming off scores of 128 and 139 in his last two games which gives him a BE of 82. He is owned by only 8% of the competition. The only buyer beware is he may cop a tag this week from Clarke which may slow him down a little.

Dustin Martin (FWD/MID, $692,000)
Dusty looks to be peaking at the right time of the year. Every week I watch him play he seems to be edging closer to the heights displayed in his ridiculous Brownlow season. He is currently averaging 113 in his last three on the back of 133 and 111 in his last two games and he has a great matchup with the Blues at the MCG which is the same venue he pumped out those two previous scores. The Buyer beware is that he doesn’t have a great history against the Blues but I think he will be fine this week.

You… Get the Chop

Dom Sheed (MID, $682,000)
The premiership hero was travelling nicely with scores of 103, 125 and 118 between rounds 17 and 19 before last weeks disaster that even cost some of his owners an elimination final. In the middle of a dream run for midfielders, he did the unimaginable and scored just 49 against the Blues, leaving him with a BE of 126. He should bounce back well but he is now hard to trust in knock out games.

My Trades

At this stage my trades are Connor Blakely to  Lachie Whitfield and a cash grab from rookie Bewley.

    Josh Kelly in as the 3rd best mid, but hasn’t played the last 4 weeks and the game before that he had 89? Interesting……

      Was rested for most of the 4th on that 89 score, 67% TOG for the game.

      That was the only game he went under 100 this year.

      Hard to argue with that really.

        Hard to argue with not playing for a month and deserving a spot in the top 3? Ok mate.

        yeah delusional to think a bloke who hasnt played for a month and isnt even certain to play this weekend is third.
        Its rolling 22, not seasonal 22.

    So Worpel who averages 101 in his last 11 games isn’t even mentioned in ‘in the mix’. While a bloke who hasn’t scored a ton for 6 weeks is ? Makes sense
    We also have a bloke who hasn’t played in a month as the third best mid ? ….. makes sense …..

      Came to say the same thing, the Worpedo is criminally underrated here. Had him since round 1 for $501k and never looked back

        They trade out Matt Crouch, one of the best Fantasy mids in the game … enough said ….
        I admit, some of the advice is hilariously bad.

      Weak link = Ziebell. Upgrade to Greene if you can swing it with the most expensive bench to a no game spud

        I’m worried that Greene’s score will be effected if Kelly returns this week tho.

    Worpel and Josh Kelly making a mockery of your rolling 22. Just as I predicted before the weekend.
