Roy’s Trade Talk (Prelim Edition)

The all important Preliminary Finals are upon us and Roy has a look at a few guys who might be worth a look over the last couple of weeks.

Under-Priced MIDs:

Dayne Beams (MID, $582,000) bounced back from his 80 last week to record his third score over 140 in the last four weeks with 143. He has a solid matchup with the Demons this week, but my eyes are on him for the GF with a tasty matchup against the Roos at the GABBA.

Nat Fyfe  (MID, $584,000) is almost in career best Fantasy form with five hundreds in six games with three of those games over 110. His score of 107 last week was extremely impressive given the Swans domination and the score of 32 his sidekick Lachie Neale managed. His last two games are at Domain and Etihad where he his most previous scores are 132 and 114.

Under-Priced FWD:

Jack Billings (FWD/MID, $526,000) is in sensational form with 119 and 135 in his last two. The thing I like most about Billings is he has a 150 ceiling and had he kicked straight last week, he would have reached it for the second time this year. He has a great match up this week against the Roos who have been giving up plenty points and should be great again.

Crisis Creates Opportunity:

Sam Menegola (FWD/MID, $536,000) loves the opportunity that arises with an under manned Cat midfield, embracing games where either Dangerfield or Selwood is out. With Joel ruled out for the next two weeks, there is no reason Menegola won’t continue his hot streak that has seen him score 103, 120 and 110 in his last three games.


Luke Dunstan (MID, $510,000) is in ripping form, rising 24K last week and 94K since the start of the season. If chasing a unique is your thing, he ticks all boxes with a .43% ownership, a dream matchup with the Roos and a four game scoring streak of triple figures that reads 107, 116, 100 and 110.

Pick Of The Week:

Chad Wingard (FWD/MID, $547,000) is also a great unique selection on the back of an injury layoff. There was certainly no easing back in for the Chad as he bumped Gray back to the forward line and collected himself 32 possessions from 92% game time for a score of 121. That gives him scores of 121, 136 and 141 within his last five outings to go with the easiest run home in footy with games against the Dogs and Suns at home in the GF.
