Cash Cows

Fry’s Cash Cows – Rd. 6

With popular rookies nearing peak value, Fry explores what cash cow moves to make prior to Round 6!

Five down, 18 to go!

There weren’t as many lofty rookie scores in Round 5, although the welcome addition of some new DPP’s helped to soften the blow for fantasy teams around the globe. While the large portion of players could be considered irrelevant for coaches, there were roughly half a dozen cash cows who increased their worth by adding a second position. A lot of those mainstream rooks are approaching peak value and toggling them around your squad to maximise their worth before being culled is a must for coaches who want to be successful.

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


Power Ranking Cash Cows – Round 5

After five weeks of action, these are the top-10 cash cow performers in season 2022!

Cash Cow King – Round 5

Newly labelled RUC/FWD Tristan Xerri (86) was the top scorer for the cash cows in Round 5 with high scoring rookies few and far between. North’s lead ruckman outpaced first-year phenom Nick Daicos (80) who seems set to feature in the top-4 cash cow scorers every week, with reborn forwards Patrick Naish (82) and Tyson Stengle (80) rounding out the list. Xerri gets the nod for me this week and hopefully, the lofty point totals return next round.

Who's gets your vote as the Cash Cow King for Round 5?

Round 6 Rookie Rankings

DEFENCE

The top of the defensive pecking order hasn’t changed with Nathan O’Driscoll ($346K, 68, BE -17) surviving the axe despite multiple big-name Dockers returning and NOD continuing to thrive on a wing against Essendon. Excluding his sub-affected score, O’Driscoll boasts an average of 79 and his negative breakeven means he’ll keep soaring in value much to the delight of nearly half the league. Another solid score from Nasiah Wanganeen-Milera ($365K, 62, BE 18) will excite Saints fans and the few coaches who invested in him, but the DEF cash cow stocks continue to look dire outside of the top-2.

Currently the second most traded out player Paddy McCartin ($359K, 39, BE 51) has burned coaches for the last time, after three consecutive scores under 42. Surely McCartin has been removed from your field, but if not, you need an instant alternative. I don’t endorse grabbing new Magpie recruit Nathan Kreuger ($318K, 67, BE 16) as his replacement and four goals in two games thus far have helped boosted his value with forgotten Sydney defender Will Gould ($190K, DNP, BE 25) the last member of the DEF group this week. To be clear I don’t expect a debut anytime soon for Gould, but 24 touches (23 kicks) in the VFL for a score of 101 on the weekend will keep him in the mind of fantasy coaches.

Top-5

  1. Nathan O’Driscoll (Dockers)
  2. Nasiah Wanganeen-Milera (Saints)
  3. Nathan Kreuger (Magpies)
  4. Paddy McCartin (Swans)
  5. Will Gould (Swans)*

* if named

If we don’t see Gould crack the AFL soon, then there might be another debutant in Josh Fahey ($208K, DNP, BE 27) after his 95 points fuelled by 17 kicks for the Giants VFL side. There’s a world in which Fahey comes in to replace Jake Stein ($251K, 46, BE 12) after his lacklustre scoring, although his impact for GWS isn’t measured accurately by his fantasy numbers. On the topic of fantasy numbers, Sam Skinner ($208K, DNP, BE 16) and Joel Smith ($289K, DNP, BE 14) won’t likely be cracking their respective senior sides after they both produced scores in the 50’s last weekend and Josh Gibcus ($294K, DNP, BE 30) is no certainty to earn a recall for the Tigers either, not that a lot of teams would be hanging out for his return.

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 2022 watchlist in case they burst onto the scene. In no particular order:
Darcy Wilmot (Lions, $260K)
Josh Fahey (Giants, $208K)
Isaac Chugg (Magpies, $190K)
Rory Thompson (Suns, $190K)
Garrett McDonagh (Bombers, $192K)
Bodhi Uwland (Suns, $190K)

MIDFIELD

Essendon didn’t put on a show against the Dockers last round, but Ben Hobbs ($293K, 72, BE 9) was one of the shining lights for the Dons. The debutant and No. 13 pick from last year’s draft filled up the stat sheet with 15 disposals, 6 marks and 5 tackles, hopefully in the process emerging as another trustworthy cash cow for fantasy teams. There were a lot of coaches that weren’t putting their trust in Reef McInnes ($260K, 62, BE 6) after his 19-point showing in Round 4, however, the Collingwood youngster refound his mojo with a solid showing against the Lions.

Josh Ward ($395K, 58, BE 41) was given the flick by a heavy number of coaches before lockout stuck last weekend and his Easter Monday efforts won’t see him clog up an M7-M8 spot for much longer. Scoring 25 points in the final quarter helped save Ward’s score, but he has served his purpose as a cash cow and he’ll be among the most popular trade out candidates this week. No one will likely be ditching Jason Horne-Francis ($489K, 54, BE 38) and/or Nick Daicos ($605K, 80, BE 35) with the latter of this pair perhaps the most important DPP addition; now able to be utilised as a very helpful defender.

Top-5

  1. Nick Daicos (Magpies)
  2. Jason Horne-Francis (Kangaroos)
  3. Josh Ward (Hawks) 
  4. Ben Hobbs (Bombers)
  5. Reef McInnes (Magpies)

Daicos wasn’t the only rook to add a new position with the likes of Connor Macdonald ($358K, 49, BE 40) and Jackson Mead ($306K, 40, BE 18) now classified as MID/FWD’s. That doesn’t mean they are irreplaceable, but an added position does increase their value for coaches and will likely see them keep their place in fantasy sides for a few more weeks. There isn’t the same optimism with Marcus Windhager ($240K, 36, BE 11) and first-gamer Finn Callaghan ($292K, 45, BE 30) both of whom struggled to rack up points last week.

At the state league level, the return of Greg Clark ($190K, DNP, BE 25) was a welcome sight, with the mature-aged Eagle chalking up 92 points from 18 touches in his first game back from a shoulder injury. His teammate Brady Hough ($273K, DNP, BE 16) produced a near-identical stat line (92 points from 19 touches) and Fremantle’s Karl Worner ($190K, DNP, BE 25) enjoyed his first WAFL game with 131 points, 2 goals and 31 touches. Cooper Stephens ($190K, DNP, BE 25) dropped another score in the 90’s thanks to 19 disposals and 7 tackles while Bulldogs recruit Robbie McComb ($190K, DNP, BE 25) returned to action scoring 105 points from 28 touches.

 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 2022 watchlist in case they burst onto the scene. In no particular order:
Greg Clark (Eagles, $190K)
Arlo Draper (Magpies, $202K)
Matty Roberts (Swans, $224K)
Matthew Johnson (Dockers, $250K)
James Tsitas (Suns, $190K)
Robbie McComb (Bulldogs, $190K)
Josh Goater (Kangaroos, $248K)
Hugh Jackson (Power, $190K)
Tom Joyce (Eagles, $190K)

RUCK

Once again, we are spoilt for choice with rookie rucks and last week’s first gamer Sam Hayes ($209K, 51, BE 7) was able to produce a decent score and give us yet another option to utilise in the RUC department. The Port young gun will seemingly have an extended run as their lead ruck after Scott Lycett opted for surgery on his shoulder injury, making Hayes another solid cash cow investment.

The return of Jack Hayes ($410K, 70, BE 23) was a timely addition for coaches who slotted Preuss in at R2 and Hugh Dixon ($329K, 59, BE 0) kept trending in the right direction as well, holding his own in West Coast’s hefty loss to the Swans. That trio, plus Tristan Xerri adding ruck status, now gives coaches a lot of options and flexibility with their ruck rotation.

Top-5

  1. Jack Hayes (Saints)
  2. Hugh Dixon (Eagles) 
  3. Sam Hayes (Power)

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 2022 watchlist in case they burst onto the scene. In no particular order:
Paul Tsapatolis (Cats, $190K)
Jacob Edwards (Kangaroos, $190K)
Luke Strnadica (Eagles, $190K)
Mac Andrew (Suns, $282K)
Max Heath (Saints, $190K)
Alex Mirkov (Blues, $190K)

FORWARD

Sticking with Tristan Xerri ($501K, 86, BE 32), the lumbering Roo got his scoring back on track against Tim English and the Bulldogs thanks to 20 touches and 26 hitouts. There aren’t too many coaches who will move Xerri straight into one of their ruck slots, however, having the option to do so makes him more important as a cash cow and will likely see the North product hang around for the foreseeable future. His efforts saw Xerri snag the No. 1 forward ranking this week with Nic Martin ($476K, 68, BE 24) and Josh Rachele ($492K, 53, BE 48) not too far behind. Rachele’s score in Round 5 wasn’t as fruitful as coaches would’ve liked, but both he and Martin still have room to grow, proving that they can be trusted on our field.

The duo likely reside at F4-F6 for coaches at the moment and Martin in particular continues to produce pleasing scores, now eligible to be used as a MID following the new DPP additions. Willie Rioli ($442K, 58, BE 29) doesn’t boast the same high ownership as the other two, and despite going goalless last week, he showed that he can still score and provide coaches with a trustworthy player capable of making another $50K-$100K. He and Corey Durdin ($300K, 46, BE 14) round out the FWD rankings this week, with Carlton’s small solidifying a spot in the Blues’ side that should see him continue to trend upwards as well.

Top-5

  1. Tristan Xerri (Kangaroos) 
  2. Nic Martin (Bombers)
  3. Josh Rachele (Crows)
  4. Corey Durdin (Blues)
  5. Willie Rioli (Eagles)

Hugo Ralphsmith ($374K, 40, BE 30) lost his spot in the top-5 after the dashing Tiger was subbed out against Adelaide and appears set to miss a few weeks with a rib complaint. Some may want to turn to Malcolm Rosas ($276K, 73, BE -10) or Kai Lohmann ($257K, 39, BE 27) as a replacement, neither of which instil me with tons of confidence as a worthwhile cash cow. His low BE makes Rosas an option for those in dire need, but I wouldn’t want to trust him on my field.

Similar could be said for Tyson Stengle ($417K, 80, BE 33) who produced another pleasing score, but I don’t expect him to sustain those numbers. In the VFL, Elijah Hollands ($190K, DNP, BE 25) continues to push for a debut after 85 points with two snags and a five-goal haul from discarded Don Kaine Baldwin ($194K, DNP, BE 22) may see him earn a recall in the not so distant future. His teammate Tex Wanganeen ($201K, DNP, BE 21) had five shots on goal as well for his score of 68, but even if he cracks Essendon’s senior team, it’s wise to avoid Wanganeen.

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 2022 watchlist in case they burst onto the scene. In no particular order:
Ely Smith (Lions, $190K)
Jai Serong (Hawks, $190K)
Sam Darcy (Bulldogs, $288K)
Ned Long (Hawks, $190K)
Joel Jeffrey (Suns, $196K)
Sam Philp (Blues, $205K)
Arthur Jones (Bulldogs, $206K)
Jackson Callow (Hawks, $190K)
Ash Johnson (Magpies, $190K)

Maurice Rioli (Tigers, $190K)

    Cheers Fry, nice job. I’m wondering whom you’d field.. JHF against the Cats or Hobbs in the Anzac clash? I’m leaning towards them having a similar score..

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 11:12 am

      I’m with ya, I think they’ll be similar but I think I’d side with JHF

  2. Josh

    April 20, 2022 at 10:04 am

    Which trade is best?
    1. Ward to Hobbs (fielded)
    2. McCartin to a cheap defensive rookie (bench)
    3. Hough to 170k rookie
    These trades will enable me to go Hall to a premium midfielder under 930-940k
    Which premium midfielder is best to trade in?
    I’ve currently got L.Neale, Steele and Macrae

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 11:13 am

      I think No. 1 mate, then I’d try target someone like Touk or Travis Boak

    • Garry

      April 20, 2022 at 1:43 pm

      Who to bench out of these 4?

      JHF, Nick Martin, O’Driscoll & Ben Hobbs.

      Thanks

      • Fry

        April 20, 2022 at 4:04 pm

        Probably Hobbs

  3. Nick

    April 20, 2022 at 10:49 am

    Which rookie should i trade out first?
    Rachele, McDonald, McEntee, Ward, Pmac or Hough (only Rachele and Ward are on field)
    My other trade will be Hall out to someone

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 11:14 am

      Probably P-Mac for me mate, or Ward to Hobbs

  4. KB

    April 20, 2022 at 11:01 am

    Hobbs or Clark if both named? and will be on field.

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 11:13 am

      I think I’d prefer the extra $$$ and Clark

      • James

        April 20, 2022 at 4:20 pm

        Is it too late to pick up Naish if I don’t quite have enough cash yet to upgrade rowell? Or would it be better to grab a rook like Hobbs?

        • Fry

          April 22, 2022 at 11:30 am

          I think so mate, I’d rather go for Hobbs

  5. Andy

    April 20, 2022 at 11:20 am

    Thanks Fry. I’m thinking Hobbs and Hayes this week, then maybe Clark and a Premo mid next week (Hobbs will be too pricey after this week). Lots of cash gen followed up with a solid upgrade, fingers crossed no injuries!

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 4:04 pm

      Sound like good moves to mate. Hopefully team selection tomorrow night is kind 🤞

  6. PK

    April 20, 2022 at 12:04 pm

    Cheers as always fry!

    Would you rather trade Ward to Hobbs with 322k for next week (have to field both hobbs and JHF) or trade Ward to Newcombe?

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 4:05 pm

      Anytime mate!
      Definitely No. 1 if Hobbs holds his spot

  7. Damo

    April 20, 2022 at 12:13 pm

    Mills or Oliver

    And who’s more of a priority to trade out: Crouch, Foley or Bowey?

    • Dan

      April 20, 2022 at 12:41 pm

      I’d drop Bowey. You’re not going to have to worry about Crouch scoring you 30 or 40

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 4:06 pm

      See if one helps byes more than the other, I’d say Mills and Bowey though

  8. Western Warrior

    April 20, 2022 at 12:20 pm

    Thanks for the article Fry! What do you think of McComb? His VFL numbers for this year and last look really good but i havent seen him play. If he comes in for Hunter what sort of output would you expect and do you think he would be able to hold for a few weeks with Hunter out? Weighing up whether to go the safer option in Hobbs or have more cash with McComb. I think the eagles will give Clark another week in the WAFL at least and dont really see too many other basements with any JS coming this week. Cheers mate

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 4:08 pm

      It’s a tough one, personally I like Hobbs more as a player, but you imagine he’ll find it hard to score/keep his job when Merrett returns. If McComb is named I like the idea of jumping on him, you’re right he should be able to string a few games together. If you’re looking for an on field replacement I’d go Hobbs, but on the bench go for McComb

  9. Oi

    April 20, 2022 at 12:46 pm

    Field Ward or Hobbs?

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 4:09 pm

      I think you side with Ward but they should be pretty similar

  10. Mike

    April 20, 2022 at 1:18 pm

    Difficult to pick. Hawks v’s Swans in Tassie may produce a higher score for Ward.
    But they’ll probably end up with similar scores.

  11. Miss Torso

    April 20, 2022 at 1:22 pm

    Trade out fattened cash cows or rookies not playing?

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 4:10 pm

      Depends on which players you can get for those non-playing rookies. If you don’t have too many of them though nothing wrong with cashing in those fattened rookies

  12. Wei teck

    April 20, 2022 at 1:30 pm

    Which trade option is best?
    1. Ward to Hobbs and Hall to Walsh
    2. McDonald to Hobbs and Hall to Walsh (field Ward or McDonald)
    3. McCartin to Stein/Fahey and Hall to Walsh
    4. Hough/McEntee to Hobbs and Hall to English/Cripps/Zorko
    5.Hough/McEntee to S.Hayes and Hall to Walsh

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 4:11 pm

      No. 1 mate

  13. Garry

    April 20, 2022 at 1:44 pm

    Who to bench out of these 4?
    JHF, Nick Martin, O’Driscoll & Ben Hobbs.
    Thanks

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 4:12 pm

      Hobbs

  14. Hinchy

    April 20, 2022 at 2:11 pm

    Hey fry, I need some help with these options please
    1. Trade Rachele and Horne-Francis to 190k(bench) and Oliver
    2. Trade Rachele and ward to 190k (bench) and green
    3. Fix rookies and have to keep Horne Francis on field
    4. Trade ward and crouch to Hobbs (bench) and Oliver/Touk

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 4:12 pm

      I’d personally go No. 4 and maybe grab Touk. Can’t be too much longer before he starts producing unreal scores again

      • Hinchy

        April 21, 2022 at 2:14 am

        Thanks Fry, i think i will do 1 this week and do 4 next week to another 190k rookie and miss Hobbs as he is only on my bench, my team should look good then and i can then fix up my red dots!
        Cheers

  15. Nico

    April 20, 2022 at 2:28 pm

    Great read Fry!
    Am downgrading Ward but would you pass up on Hobbs if you have O’Driscol on the bench (becomes M8) and grab Sam Hayes?

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 4:13 pm

      Grabbing the extra cash and going for Sam Hayes is a good plan if you ask me mate!

  16. Jack

    April 20, 2022 at 2:31 pm

    Tossing up between 3 trades not sure what to do
    Rowell and ward to hayes and jdg 5 rooks on field
    Rowell and rachelle to mills and hayes 5 rooks
    Rachelle and jhf to hayes and jdg 4 rooks

    • Aditya Sarin

      April 20, 2022 at 2:42 pm

      Hi mate

      great read once again was wondering if I should get in Hobbs or O’Driscoll. I can onyl chose one of them.

      Cheers

      • Fry

        April 20, 2022 at 4:16 pm

        I’d probably save the few extra $$$ and go for Hobbs

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 4:13 pm

      I’d go for No. 2 mate

  17. Scott

    April 20, 2022 at 3:02 pm

    Trading Ward to Hayes is good for cash gen but then I would have Gawn, Grundy, Preuss, Dixon and Hayes. Plus Hayes would be stuck as Utility with no flexibility to change positions. What do people think?

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 4:18 pm

      If you’re that loaded for RUC players there’s no need to grab him, unless you wanted to look at doing a Hayes > Hayes trade. Then again you can always do that next week when Ryder can return if Jack hayes loses his spot

      • Scott

        April 20, 2022 at 5:03 pm

        Thanks Fry. I don’t have J Hayes, only reason for thinking of trading Ward to S Hayes was the $200K cash gen to then upgrade Lipinski to Mills. I’ll wait to see if another cheap rookie gets selected this week.

  18. Molli

    April 20, 2022 at 3:20 pm

    rowell to NOD or bowey to hobbs?

    • Fry

      April 20, 2022 at 4:18 pm

      Ooooo toughy, I think it’s time to jump off the Rowell train and go him to NOD personally

  19. The Kid

    April 20, 2022 at 4:57 pm

    Hi Fry, I’ve got a few trade options;

    1. Rowell to Hobbs and Chapman to Crisp/Heeney
    2. Rowell to Hobbs and Ward to Hayes

    What do you think??

    • Fry

      April 22, 2022 at 11:31 am

      No. 1 and get Crisp mate

    Blakey, Ridley, Caldwell

      Ridley, Caldwell then Blakey

    April 20, 2022 at 5:10 pm

    Hi Fry,

    Would you go Hobbs or Sam Hayes if you can only go one?

    Thanks

    • Fry

      April 22, 2022 at 11:32 am

      If they’re on your field I’d go Hobbs, otherwise the extra $$$ and Hayes is smart

  22. Mike

    April 20, 2022 at 5:13 pm

    So if Clark is named on field, he’d be a better pick than Hobbs because of his cash generation. I’d better get a plan b ready. An extra 100k is handy.

    • Fry

      April 22, 2022 at 11:33 am

      I think West Coast will give him another week or 2 in the WAFL first, especially if Shuey, Kelly and the likes of Yeo/Sheed are coming back into the fold

    Thinking of trading Hall to someone like Sicily or Hewett and upgrading Brodie to Walsh or Cripps

      Too early on Brodie.

        Brodie could even end up f6 at season’s end

          Not in that team, he won’t. I am wondering what DNT is smoking, if he sees those players on his team.

      I think you should look long and hard at getting some crap players into your side. Weekend would be boring with that team and them going so well all the team, you need some duds to balance out your emotions

    I’m thinking of dumping McDonald over Ward and PMac because McDonald and Ward have similar breakevens but Ward has a higher scoring potential. Also I can get McDonald to a reliable mid rookie like Hobbs and trading PMac to Hobbs (via Davila) will mean I’m stuck with O’Driscol on bench and will have to field both Ward and Hobbs. What do you think??

    • Fry

      April 22, 2022 at 11:40 am

      I’m personally getting rid of Ward over MacDonald, but you make some good points. Chopping McCartin out first makes sense and I’d play Hobbs on the field if you get him

      Any idea whats happening with Hollands. Was talking like he was a shoe in at the Suns and hasnt been sighted.

    • Fry

      April 22, 2022 at 11:41 am

      They’re both tasty, I’d go No. 2 and get Bazlenka if you can though

    Which of these cows do we think have hit their ceiling, or close to?
    Gibcus
    J. Smith
    SDK
    JHF
    Mead
    J. Rachele
    C. Durdin

    • Fry

      April 22, 2022 at 11:42 am

      I’d say the non-playing defenders (Gibcus/Smith) can go, SDK and Durdin can grow a bit more, Mead should be able to regain a spot and make some dough while Rachele and JHF are the last priority

    Thoughts Fry…
    Rosas, Durdin or Windhager at F6 this week?

    • Fry

      April 22, 2022 at 11:42 am

      Sheesh, tough times. I’d back in Durdin

    Love your work Fry!

    Thinking of going
    Rachele > McComb
    Rowell > Bailey Smith

    Would you take Bailey Smith, Oliver or Walsh??

    • Fry

      April 22, 2022 at 11:43 am

      Thanks mate!
      Personally, I’m getting Walsh this week but those trades with the Baz Smith addition id pretty delicious

    April 21, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    McComb and the $$$ or Hobbs??

    If McComb I can get Bazlenka or Walsh. If Hobbs it’s anyone under $846k. What would you do Fry man!!?

    • Fry

      April 22, 2022 at 11:47 am

      On field Hobbs, on the bench the $$$ and McComb is the way to go. I like Baz over Walsh (just) and Cripps or Josh Kelly (maybe even Zork) are the ones I’d target under $846K

  34. Henry

    April 21, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    1) McComb and Bailey Smith
    2) McComb and Walsh
    3) Hobbs and Titch
    5) Hobbs and Serong + $180k

    • Fry

      April 22, 2022 at 11:52 am

      No. 1

    Not (5) IMO
    (4) is intriguing…no trades perhaps!
    Bazlenka and Walsh are good pick ups. McComb and Hobbs both good cows
    Keen to see who Fry the legend chooses

    • Fry

      April 22, 2022 at 11:52 am

      Baz slightly over Walsh in my opinion, but both are ripper gets!

    Which trade is best?
    1) Hough to McComb and Hall to B.Smith (field Ward)
    2) McDonald to McComb and Hall to B.Smith (field Ward)
    3) McDonald to Hobbs and Hall to Mills/Walsh (field Ward)
    4) Ward to McComb and Hall to B.Smith (field McComb/McInnes/McDonald)
    5) Ward to Hobbs and Hall to B.Smith (field Hobbs)

    • Fry

      April 22, 2022 at 11:53 am
