Cash Cows

Fry’s Cash Cows – Rd. 8

Another hump day, another cash cow update courtesy of Fry ahead of Round 8!

  • Avatar

As I write this I’m trying to wrap my head around the concept of 33 games of footy over 20 consecutive days. It’s every man (and any sane woman’s) best dream to have footy on every day of the week, but as a fantasy coach, the challenge ahead is a colossal one. Cash generation and bench cover are going to be crucial during this time and with an extra trade now up our sleeves, utilising it smartly will go a long way to help navigate the rest of this crazy season!

Rookie/cash cows are usually players who start the season priced at $300,000 or lower


Cash Cow King – Round 7

So many scores to choose from! A decent group of rookies came to the party over the weekend with Noah Anderson snagging yet another Rising Star nomination for the Suns for his efforts. Marlion Pickett and Curtis Taylor bounced back from less than spectacular efforts and Will Day shone in the Hawks backline in just his second career game. My vote sides with Taylor this week thanks to his return to form – with Rankine (who also scored 72) unlucky to miss out on a nomination.

Mooooving On

I’ve simplified the ‘Mooooving On’ section this week, narrowing down the trade out candidates into two separate tiers. Trading out injured/non-playing rookies usually takes priority, but with three trades up our sleeves coaches will be looking to also axe their cash cows who have topped out in value.

Fattened cash cows

  1. Brandon Starcevich, Lions ($381K, AVG 46, BE 52)
  2. Connor Budaruck, Suns ($334K, AVG 42, BE 42)
  3. Fischer Mcasey, Crows ($354K, AVG 29, BE 31)
  4. Max King, Saints ($317K, AVG 39, BE 37)
  5. Jacob Townsend ($331K, AVG 38, BE 45)

Those who smartly sent Brandon Starcevich and Connor Budarick packing last week would have breathed a sigh of relief after Round 7. Both players have started to decline in value, with key-position players Fischer Mcasey and Max King ready to be dealt as well. Caleb Serong was lucky not to land on the list, but at least he didn’t go down in value.

Injured/non-playing rookies

  1. Hayden Young, Dockers ($355K, AVG 41, BE 44)
  2. Tyler Brown, Pies ($263K, AVG 34, BE 16)
  3. Tom Green, Giants ($322K, AVG 42, BE 19)
  4. Jarrod Brander, Eagles ($354K, AVG 55, BE -8)
  5. Trent Rivers, Demons ($296K, AVG 41, BE 14)

The news that Hayden Young is going to be sidelined for a few months saw a LOT of coaches give him the flick last week, but if your team is one of the 9.3% who still owns the young Docker – act accordingly. A trio of T’s can’t manage to squeeze themselves back into their respective senior sides and if another decent downgrade target is in your sights, offloading them for a few dollars isn’t a terrible idea.

Round 8 Rookie Rankings

DEFENSE

And just like that, we have relevant defensive cash cows! Well, sort of. A week after thrusting him into the No. 1 defender slot Lachie Ash ($320K, 51, BE 10) put up solid numbers for nearly 20% of the competition gladly taking his three-round average over 50. It’s not a lot, but we’ll take it this season. New instalments to the DEF rankings in Will Day ($316K, 72, BE -9) and Ryley Stoddart ($238K, 57, BE -6) deserve half an apology after being skimmed over last week, with Day in particular drawing the interest of fantasy coaches.

The potential return of Jack Scrimshaw this weekend and Day’s 67 point average from last year’s U-18 carnival scared me off originally but after clunking eight marks on the weekend, there’s a blueprint to success for the young Hawk. Stoddart didn’t turn as many heads but offloading the underwhelming Brandon Starcevich ($369K, 33, BE 52) could make you a pretty coin. Andrew McPherson ($222K, 44, BE -4) rounds out the top-5 and looms as my favourite downgrade target down back after a solid showing for the Crows.

Top-5

  1. Lachie Ash (Giants)
  2. Will Day (Hawks)
  3. Brandon Starcevich (Lions)
  4. Andrew McPherson (Crows)
  5. Ryley Stoddart (Swans)

Crows duo Fischer Mcasey ($264K, 19, BE 31) and Will Hamill ($253K, 18, BE 20) were the only other fantasy-relevant rookies defenders (sorry Ben McKay) to take to the park this weekend, but neither of them did a lot to improve their reputation. Louis Butler ($229K, DNP, BE -12) thrived on a wing for the Dogs in their scratch match and could earn a recall to the senior side this week but the same can’t be said for Trent Rivers ($296K, DNP, BE 14) who remains on the outside looking in.

 Best of the Rest

These players may or may not be in the selection mix this week, but be sure to keep them on your 2020 watchlist in case they burst onto the scene. In no particular order:
Hugh Goddard (Blues, $170K)
Jez McLennan (Suns, $170K)
Will Gould (Swans, $220K)

Trent Bianco (Magpies, $182K)
Tobe Watson (Dockers, $170K)
Matthew Ling (Swans, $170K)
Josh Worrell (Crows, $216K)
Damon Greaves (Hawks, $170K)

MIDFIELD

Finally, after seven weeks of footy, Marlion Pickett ($354K, 89, BE -3) showed off his full fantasy skillset – thanks to a goal, 16 touches, 5 marks and 7 tackles against the Roos. More performances like this will see him climb the ranks and challenge Noah Anderson ($465K, 76 BE 22) for the top rung in the future. The gun Sun deserves his spot atop the food chain for now though and another stellar showing from Sam Simpson ($305K, 62, BE -30) has him well and truly deserving of the No. 2 slot.

The return of Mitch Duncan coupled with a hamstring injury to Joel Selwood should mean Simpson is here to stay for a while, but after rising $135K in price already, the 70%+ of the competition without the gun Cat have missed out on most of his growth. 2019 draftees Dylan Stephens ($317K, 45, BE 9) and Caleb Serong ($342K, 28, BE 33) had two very different weekends with the Swans youngster performing admirably during Sydney’s loss to the Suns. The same can’t be said for Serong however, who fell from No. 2 to No. 5 this week after just 10 disposals and 1 tackle against a superior Eagles side. No need to panic yet if you’re a Serong owner, but it’s time to start thinking about offloading the Fremantle rookie.

Top-5

  1. Noah Anderson (Suns)
  2. Sam Simpson (Cats)
  3. Marlion Pickett (Tigers)
  4. Dylan Stephens (Swans)
  5. Caleb Serong (Dockers)

There were plenty of popular picks who didn’t excel in Round 7 with Mitch Hibberd ($267K, 34, BE 5) losing his place in the top-5 thanks to just 34 points. He wasn’t alone with mainstream names like Ned McHenry ($287K, 36, BE 13) and Harley Bennell ($319K, 36, BE 21) also failing to surpass 30’s and debutant Ryan Byrnes ($171K, 21, BE 17) expected to be a one-hit-wonder for the Saints.

Speaking of debutants, we learned yesterday that Bulldogs youngster Callum Porter will play his first AFL match against the Suns on Thursday! The Dogs’ 5th fresh face of the season has spent a few seasons plying his craft at VFL level – averaging 17.2 touches amongst his 66.7 point average in 2019 and if you’re considering chopping out a non-playing MID to Porter I can’t blame you. There’s a chance he’ll follow in Byrnes’ shoes and only last one game, but my gut tells me he can string at least a few games together. Especially if he keeps coming up with cracking jokes like this.

Best of the Rest

These players may or may not be in the selection mix this week, but be sure to keep them on your 2020 watchlist in case they burst onto the scene. In no particular order:
Jeremy Sharp (Suns, $218K)
Luke Valente (Dockers, $170K)
Jack Bytel (Saints, $170K)
Finn Maginness (Hawks, $214K)

Riley Collier-Dawkins (Tigers, $170K)
Jackson Mead (Power, $222K)
Tom North (Dockers, $170K)
Cooper Stephens (Cats, $240K)

RUCK

Just because Luke Jackson ($286K, 59, BE 11) suited up for Melbourne last week doesn’t mean he’ll be there again in Round 8. Tom McDonald is expected to come straight back into the Demons lineup and it could/likely will see Jackson sent back out of the 22. The young Dee did give us a glimpse into the future with 59 points against the Hawks that included his first goal in footy and a healthy 14 touches. He’ll be one to watch in years to come, but as long as Max Gawn is at the club, he’ll remain fantasy irrelevant.

Top-3

  1. Luke Jackson (Demons)
  2. Darcy Cameron (Magpies)*
  3. Sam Draper (Bombers)*

*if named

Best of the Rest

These players may or may not be in the selection mix this week, but be sure to keep them on your 2020 watchlist in case they burst onto the scene. In no particular order:
Tom De Koning (Blues, $190K)
Jordan Sweet (Bulldogs, $170K)
Matthew Flynn (Giants, $170K)
Bailey Williams (Eagles, $170K)
Lloyd Meek (Dockers, $170K)
Sam Draper (Bombers, $170K)
Sam Hayes (Power, $170K)

FORWARD

After fighting for the top rung in the FWD rankings since the start of the season Curtis Taylor ($399K, 72, BE 27) has once again taken pole position following his heroics on the weekend. Taylor helped himself to a new-career-best 18 disposals in North’s loss to the Tigers, with the young Roo bouncing back after scoring just 10 in Round 6. His toughest competition for the top spot comes in the form of last week’s No. 1 Laitham Vandermeer ($401K, 41, BE 18) and first-year phenom Izak Rankine ($266K, 72, BE -27). The 41 points Vandermeer scored on the weekend were his fewest since Round 3, while Rankine continues to rise in popularity and value with every kick he earns. We could be in for one helluva race for the 2020 cash cow Forward of the Year!

Rounding out the best five forwards you can find Jake Aarts ($254K, 46, BE 2) and Max King ($317K, 28, BE 37) – two rookies in very different positions as we approach the mid-way point of the season. Aarts’ score was boosted by a pair of late goals in Richmond’s blowout W, but the young Tiger more than played his part throughout the night. Given their injury woes, it’s hard to see him leaving their best-22 anytime soon. The same can be said for King, more out of necessity than anything, with the lumbering Saint flatlining in value this week. His price didn’t change one cent after Monday night against the Crows, but with bench cover set to become a factor in the coming week’s holding on to King could prove to be a masterstroke. Could…

Top-5

  1. Curtis Taylor (Roos)
  2. Laitham Vandermeer (Bulldogs)
  3. Izak Rankine (Suns)
  4. Jake Aarts (Tigers)
  5. Max King (Saints)

Connor Budarick ($334K, 32, BE 42) days as a dependable cash cow have come to an end with an average of just 32.5 from the last month of footy. He can be flicked out of your sides along with the likes of Jacob Townsend ($331K, 23, BE 45) and Shane McAdam ($270K, 56, BE -1) not far behind him – despite scoring a career-best against St Kilda. Three rookie forward first-gamers were on display last weekend, with the trio taking some time to find their feet at the next level. Cody Weightman’s ($255K, 46, BE 14) score looked good on paper, but just 9 touches on the night doesn’t fill me with confidence moving forward. Elijah Taylor ($202K, 26, BE 19) and Ned Cahill ($178K, 31, BE 10) didn’t make the most of the opportunity in front of them and both will likely be shown the door when team selection rolls around on Thursday night.

Best of the Rest

These players may or may not be in the selection mix this week, but be sure to keep them on your 2020 watchlist in case they burst onto the scene. In no particular order:
Irving Mosquito (Bombers, $170K)
Cameron Taheny (Cats, $172K)
Sam Flanders (Suns, $250K)
Miles Bergman (Power, $244K)
Nakai Cockatoo (Cats, $255K)
Liam Henry (Dockers, $254)
Dylan Williams (Power, $226K)

    Hey Fry, the best of the bunch I always say,
    Wanting you opinion have 2 options going forward. How important is the rookies on Bench through this period?
    Option 1) Pittonet, Starcevich, Ward -> 170K def rookie, Crisp, Greenwood [Mid] (to be brought forward in the future)
    Option 2) Pittonet, Starcevich, Ward -> Macpherson, Day (on field), Any Midfielder (most likely either Treloar or Oliver or Neale)
    With option 1 will only have Louis Butler as Bench cover, Option 2 will have Macpherson and Louis Butler on bench as Def cover. And also relying on Hamill on field.
    Looking to next week most likely Taylor and King and Budarick are on the chopping block.

    Hi Fry you say that the egg is not for you but seeing he is playing Houli’s role must be a good thing for the kid surely. He might of scored 38 the week b4 but that was his first game. Surely he must be an ok pick as that’s who I’m thinking of bringing in. But I am wondering maybe you are right, I’m not sure as Pickett also had a big score last week.

      I would have said that Jayden Short has taken Houli’s role and Egg has stepped into Short’s. Scoring potential is there but they did smash the Kangas and that won’t happen every week

      He played two games for the Tigers last year and served a very similar role, scoring 68 and 48 in those games. My opinion is he’s not worth it, but that doesn’t mean I’m right or that you can’t make a move for him

    Almost worth keeping King and/or Budarick purely based on job security given the uncertainty of the upcoming rounds? BE may be a little high but they got the potential to just meet the break even and lose minimal coin

      Fry

      July 22, 2020 at 4:30 pm

      If they’re on your bench as solid, playing emergencies I can totally see the appeal in keeping them. If they’re on your field however, it might be wise to cash out and chase a Rankine/Aarts type or another cheaper option

    Hoping Serong and Stephens start scoring better. They haven’t made enough money yet.

    I don’t mind trading King and Bud soon, but will there be a rookie to replace them who will play enough games to be a reliable reserve? I’m already playing Rankine on the field.
    I also have non-playing L.Butler, B.Williams, Xerri, and Cavarra wasting time on the reserves bench.

      I still have hopes for them too, but my patience is running thin!
      That’s the million dollar question, is trading those players with good JS a necessity? If they’re on your field I say yes, however, addressing non-playing players stereotypically takes priority. Butler should get more games this year, but I can’t say the same for the other trio…

    Thoughts on the best of these two options:
    Option A:

    Serong to Rankine
    Pittonet to English
    Leaves: $3k

    Option B:

    Leaves: $424k and enough to get Grundy next week but I have to play Pittonet on field another week.

      Great roundup as per usual Fry, just a name that i think may have flown under the radar due to a big loss – Minairo (Michael) Frederick for Freo. His score didnt reflect how much game the young bloke has and i will be picking him up with confidence he will cash me up providing he gets the game time, and considering the rest of the boys played pretty poorly, i cant see how he wont be a strong pick on the wing or up forward.

    Love your work fry! Interested to hear what you think of Cal Porter JS with the news of Hunter out for personal reasons?

      Considering Porter was named before the Hunter news it’s a good sign, but I expect Lachie to be back next week. Will probably depend a bit on how Porter goes tonight

      MWW to Gawn is a bloody good move no matter how you get there!

    Large Fry’s and Coke!! Love your work again mate.

    I have a couple of options that I would love your opinion on.

    A) Starc > 170k Def (if one is named – T Watson?)
    Serong > Porter
    Pittonet > Gawn

    B) Starc > Day
    Green > Porter
    Pittonet > ROB

    C) Starc > Stoddart
    Green > Rankine (dpp)
    Pittonet > ROB

    What are your thoughts? I think Pitto has to go. I would upgrade Starc to Lloyd otherwise but I can’t afford to keep Pitto with scores like that 🤦🏽‍♂️

      Thanks legend!
      I can see the appeal in option A, but a $170k DEF probably won’t appear this week, especially a trusty one. I like B a little more than C to get rid of Pitt

    Hey Fry,

    Why no mention of Sam Mayes? Is it because nobody remembers anything but Robbie Gray’s goal after the siren?!

      Mayes was good, but at $324K he isn’t exactly in the rookie price range and one score is hard to judge him by. I’d much rather a younger cash cow for $50K-$100K cheaper

        Good point. Hadn’t occurred to me he was out of that range. Pretty nice score though if you’ve got the coin. I can see a bit of a parallel with Ladhams, relative to their price ranges. Both have only had one game, posted good scores relative to their price range and both could earn $100k+ over the next 3 weeks*. They’ve got St. Kilda, Melbourne and the Dogs

    Hey Fry,
    No mention of Minchington FWD for the Hawks ?
    Thought his score was alright.

      Similar to Mayes, his price tag scares me off a bit providing he’s played just one game. Let’s see how he goes this week against Sydney

    Trade out non-playing rookies such as Rivers and Brander or trade out fattened cash cows such as Starcevich and Budarick?

      Tough question, if you can trade them up and they’re on your field I think those players take priority, however, I’d default to say the non-playing guys first

      Sorry I missed this bloke, I would’ve defaulted to Bailey Smith, but if you’ve got him, I’m a big fan of James Rowbottom and David Zaharakhis. Risky, but that’s about all there is

        That’s fine. I got Bailey Smith anyway who rewarded me with a decent score last night.

    Fryski!

    I have had another thought. What about this one?

    Starc > Day
    Simpkin > Rankine
    Pitto > Gawn

    I didn’t like the sound of flicking Simpkin at the start but if he misses 2 weeks this could be a good move. Would you recommend the above or the below still?

    Starc > Day
    Green > Porter
    Pitto > ROB / English
