Look at me. Look me straight in the eyes and listen you lot coz I love yas all. Many of you will be thinking about smackin the trade button to cover donuts this week as a result of these outs. Be strong. There is plenty of carnage on the horizon and it is my strong belief that it is the most disciplined that will prevail this season. Take your medicine and cop the donut if you have to. Stick to your guns. Keep your powder dry. Dry your eyes. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Empty vessels make the most trades.
If your intention this week was to just do 1 trade – like Tomas Bugg to Lee Spur – do that. Don’t let these resting rookies pull your Supercoach ship off course. Your destination is a team full of Premium guns, not a mob made of hap hazard band-aid bludgers.
|Lee Spur||FRE||60||-49||$116,700||One of the most common trades this weeks will be Tommy The Bugg our for Lee ‘The Bone’ Spur. Mature aged 24 year old rookie with premierships under his belt in the SANFL. Great get. Listed last on the bench which is the concern vest wise.|
|Jacob Brennan||WCE||67||-65||$113,200||On a very extended bench and likely to miss this week. Not a great sign for the son of good mate Micky Brennan. Another mature aged recruit who has played senior football in the WAFL. Like The Bone’s job security better but a reasonably cheap warm body/late season cash cow selection any other week.|
|Cameron Delaney||NTH||68||-67||$113,200||Of the 3 potential cash cow/warm bodies is the only named on the field this week. Could be the selection that sets you apart from the mob, but still like the cut of Lee Spur’s jib a little better. Consider|
|Brendon Goddard||STK||107||76||$504,900||Every man and his dog has Brendon “Lamb Of” Goddard but if you’ve been in woop woop and don’t have him the time is right now.|
|Grant Birchall||HAW||95||101||$475,800||Can play the game and just have a feeling in the waters about him. Price is fair. My finely tuned fantasy football brain is gravitating to him this week.|
|Heath Shaw||COL||105||63||$530,300||Premium selection of the round. 142 and 120 in his last few games and coming into a reasonable run. Strongly consider. Price is right.|
|Jobe Watson||ESS||124||77||$588,100||Is only 13 grand more expensive than at the beginning of the season and has proven himself to me since. Buy.|
|Jack Redden||BRL||91||82||$463,200||Is $95K cheaper than at the beginning of the season leading into this weekend’s GWS game. Opportunity to grab him here at the bottom of his price curve. Consider. Gun.|
|Sam Mitchell||HAW||108||96||$512,900||Another premo superemo right at the bottom of his price curve. A midfielder you’d be happy as a cricket going into the finals with|
|Harley Bennell||GCS||90||35||$449,100||Continue to be completely impressed by this kid. If he stays fit and keen this kid will make Mike Sheehan’s top 3 one day in the not too distant future. Consider.|
|Steele Sidebottom (MID)||COL||112||49||$548,000||Remington Sidebum has gone the next level. Not too late.|
|Clancee Pearce(MID)||FRE||94||53||$469,000||Ross the Boss has taken a real liking to Clancee of the Underflow. Has been allocated a lucrative role and no reason to suggest his form will drop off dramatically. Consider.|
|Mat Pavlich||FRE||100||55||$525,700||Fantasy Footy royalty warming into the season magnificently, will end up topping out around 580-590K and suggest now is a very good time to pick him up.|
|Ryan O’Keefe||SYD||73||106||$431,609||Tasty little pickup and slipping under many radars. Could go nuts this weekend against Melbourne. I like Rhino this week.|
