Roy’s Rollin’ 22 and Trade Talk: Rd. 6

Roy names up his trade targets ahead of round six.

  • Roy

What a round hey! The biggest concern will be finding a replacement for Rowell. Similar to Howe last week, his price is still rising so it isn’t a fair reflection of his average. That makes a straight swap borderline impossible and you will find yourself grabbing cash to ‘upgrade’ to a lesser player. Having said that, here are some players worth looking at this week.

Get them in!

Lachie Whitfield (FWD/MID, $677,000) BE 43: After a rough start to the year with form an injury issues, the Giants hard running utility has dropped $167k. He knocked up his first 100 on the weekend and has a BE of 43. The perfect target as a Rowell upgrade in the midfield and swing him forward when convenient.

David Swallow (FWD/MID, $638,000) BE 37:  The newly crowned DPP has thrown his hat in the ring with forward status, especially following the loss of his teammate Rowell. His CBA’s took a big jump with the Suns rookie sensation off the ground, attending 17 and its no coincidence it coincided with a season high 94. Traditionally he has been pretty safe for a pre Corona ball 85 or so.

Nick Haynes (DEF, $668,000) BE 13:  The high volume marker has been very solid this year, without being outstanding. If fact, before the weekend, he was a little below the high expectations I had for him with just one score over 80. On the weekend however he let loose, equalling his season high with 11 marks for an impressive 115.

Sam Menegola (MID, $658,000) BE 24:  After an indifferent start to the year, it finally appears Menegola has hit his straps and as we know with him, his scoring will take care of itself once this happens. He is playing with plenty of freedom which often equates to a high number of marks and that has certainly been the case in the last two weeks with 16 in that time for scores of 106 and 89. If you like a unique… He is owned by 0% of the competition

Jake Aarts (FWD, $197,000) BE -9:  If you need to go down from Rowell and you need it to be under $200k, Aarts is well worth a look after his impressive debut and the state of the decimated Tigers. It certainly looks like he will be given plenty of opportunities given the circumstances and impressive debut which consisted of 15 possessions, three marks and two tackles.

Must have:

Lachie Neale (MID, $930,000) BE 37: Let’s face it, there is no way we should be paying that much for a player… But seriously, he is killing it. Not only is he averaging 114 while topping triple figures every week, he is also available as loophole captain this week when the matchups aren’t overly valuable for some of our regular options.

YOU… Get the chop!

Matthew Rowell (MID, $527,000) BE 41: The young Sun has been an absolute sensation this year, playing with maturity and skill well beyond his years which has seen him rise $257k. Unfortunately, he shoulder injury didn’t look good and he will need to be traded at an awkward price. There aren’t many straight price options, so up or down will need to be the play.

    Steele has 4/5 carona hundreds and averaging 92 (115) Surely he’s in over Parker and McCluggage?

    Trades at the moment
    Rowell to Green
    Budarick to McEvoy via dpp (only $40k in bank),

    Or
    Rowell to Green
    T.Brown to Aarts via dpp ($310k in bank save up for an upgrade on Budarick next week)

    Man.. Crazy to think that if Sidebum could’ve capped his boozy adventure around midnight and slept it off at home, there could be 7 of the top 8 from just 2 teams..

    Also – Budarick to Weller/Gola (Aarts at F6) OR Starcevich to Haynes (providing Brander named at D6)

    Should I trade out Sicily or fix one of my rookies on my bench such as Brown, Budarick or Philps?

      Hawks have played a lot of teams that are difficult to score against. Stick with him for two more weeks and then trade if still no good

      Offloading non-playing blokes is crucial imo – rookies or otherwise. Cash generation is king!

    I was thinking of going Vandermeer for Rowell, he has a great week last week and his BE is -25, he did have a knee to the head tho. Or Aarts for some extra Money left over??? My other trade is for sure going to be Viney To Treloar

    Last week I brought Kolo from the cats into my Backline which wasn’t ideal but it was to make money. He has never averaged over 60 in a year so it was not an ideal move but it has worked out nearly perfect for me as I’m not worried about Round wins this year. Seeing this year is so different I’m playing different. Now that poor Rowell is injured and I have 151k left over I’ve got a few options. Maybe I’ll go down to Anderson or Aart and bring in another defender or even see if there’s a way to bring in another top line Mid. I have a really bad rank (31,409). So it’s now to bring in the big guns.

      I already parted company with Whitfield weeks ago, before he was knocked out, and I’m never keen on taking players back. In the past, I’ve just had to get rid of them again. I think I’ll be looking at another mid this time.

      Whitfield doesn’t play any midfield time. He starts forward and roams wherever he likes. Taranto playing won’t affect his role at all, so shouldn’t impact his scoring. I would Cogs would be most affected, if anyone.

    Houli > Lloyd with $464k leftover for first grade

    Can basically get anyone with Rowell for second trade, do I get Neale with $60k leftover, or get a rivers/Budarick of field & play Anderson, allowing me to get any premo defender/forward with decent $$$ leftover for next round.

    Been thinking of grabbing whit and getting Budarick of field but so tempted to grab Neale! Thoughts would be much appreciated cheers legends!

    Ranks my options Rowell and viney to 1. Duncan and swallow 2. Duncan and Ridley 3. Treloar and ridley

      Matt

      July 7, 2020 at 11:59 pm

      All solid options, i think #1 as I think Duncan is safer as Treloar has only just come back and could still be an injury risk, and Swallow looks to have a pure mid role. But there’ll always be a little uncertainty with that whereas Ridley has a cemented role but i think #1 would be most rewarding. However I would advise against trading Viney altogether and focus on getting rookies off the ground, but understand why people want to go with different strategies.

    I swapped Rowell for Vandermeer (DPP and in cracking form, can wear the 1 week out if it happens) and Starcevitch to Nick Haynes… and it costs not a cent fellow coaches, because the trade works out as equal… no cost solution to losing Matty Rowell, perhaps? Any thoughts…

    p.s. and I have kept Marlion Pickett, guys, because I think he will fill Shane Edwards spot up north: being a Fremantle boy, the Gold Coast will suite him just fine methinks….
