Roy’s Trade Talk: Rd 13

Here is a few players to consider for what is commonly thought to be the hardest bye round. As always, discuss your trades in the comments section and good luck!

  • Roy

The first and what was supposed to be easiest of the bye rounds is past and its time to navigate the final two rounds. Here a few blokes that are with considering, both over the next two weeks and hopefully long term.

Trade Targets: Price, BE, Score 

  • Darcy Byrne-Jones (DEF, $584,000) 76, 108. Remains in great form since a significant roll change following the injury to Hamish Hartlett. Last week in Tassie’s 73 was his worst in six weeks, prior to that he hadn’t scored less than 88 in that period. He is fresh off the back of his first of a three game stretch at home where he was sensational for 108 with seven marks, six tackles and an impressive 19 kicks.
  • Ryan Burton (DEF, $422,000) 36, 93 if money is an issue, a punt on Ryan Burton might be in play. After a shocking start to the season, it appears he is back in form with season highs of 92 and 93 in his last two from games including season high marks of eight and eleven, surpassing the previous high of five.
  • Jack Macrae (MID, $875,000) 161, 107 the highest averaging and most expensive player in the competition is not one we want to miss out on during the back half of the season and currently only 18% of the competition have him in. He is having a extraordinary season with a lowest score of 99, while going over 140 on four occasions. He is averaging 127 and it will likely take all three trades to get close to his price tag.
  • Ollie Wines (MID, $600,000) 69, 138 has had an up and down season, but if there is ever a time to take a punt on an under priced premium, it’s now. The young gun was coming off just one ton in the last eight weeks but when you break it down, he now has a 100, 98 and his latest score and also a season high 138 within his last four games. He was in beast mode with 12 tackles to go with his 29 possessions and has the next two weeks at home.
  • Toby McLean (MID/FWD, $738,000) 115, 89 is a must have and I can’t believe he is only in 15% of teams! That mean 85% of coaches need to do something about it this week and get him in. He is averaging 106 per round and is clearly the best forward in the competition with a five round average of 119.
  • Chad Wingard (MID/FWD, $449,000) 85, 121 has had a horrible season, but the good thing is the Power realised they need to play him into for and unleashed him in the midfield and the results were instant. For the first time this year he looked locked in like the Chad we know and love collecting 31 possessions, taking five marks and laying an impressive eight tackles for his first triple figure score of the year. Since a score of 92 in round one, this ton was his first score over 73 so it’s a high risk move, especially given the vulnerability of midfield roles at the Power but for that price and the fact his bye is long gone, it is worth it.

    Still struggling between McLean & Shiels?! To get to McLean I need to trade out Kelly a week earlier than I wanted to, but if I bring in Shiels, I can keep Kelly and move on from Ronke instead..

    1 – McLean (3 rd ave 114) + Ronke (3 rd ave 59) = 173
    2 – Shiels (3 rd ave 113) + Kelly (3 rd ave 78) = 191

    Just worried about McLean vs Power at home as Richmond MIDs struggled, but Shiels is at home vs Adelaide who are leaking points to MIDs

    • McGlovins

      June 14, 2018 at 9:08 am

      I’d go McLean over Shiels as I see the former as a keeper likely to rank in the top 6 in his possie for the rest of the year. Just can’t see Shiels being a top 8 mid (the only one’s I’d be trying to bring in right now), so it’ll just cost you in the long run I reckon.

      Can you assess mine mate?

      • Alan J

        June 14, 2018 at 9:33 am

        Annoying thing is I agree with you, but I just really don’t want to part with Kelly over Ronke, even for the 1 week.. I can see a 25+ point swing and 20k saving holding Kelly

        • McGlovins

          June 14, 2018 at 1:54 pm

          Think you may be underestimating Ronke. He’s scored about at or higher than his BE in 4 of 7 games. And remember the Ronkefest against Hawks? He’s set for a big one knowing he’s got the bye the week after I reckon.

    • McGlovins

      June 14, 2018 at 9:11 am

      I’d go Hoff over both of them though as he’s looking like a solid 10+ avg from here on in and is $80K odd cheaper than McLean. Reckon McLean is due for a 90ish score soon and will drop in price a little, so better to pick up in 2-3 weeks.

  2. McGlovins

    Laird, Yeo, Lloyd, Brayshaw, Savage, Austin, (Rice, Murray)
    Titch, Cogs, Fyfe, Seeds, Neale, Cunico, Banfield, Phillips (Ahern, Brayshaw)
    Gawn, Grundy (Framps, Cameron)
    Heeney, DevSmith, Rocky, Sicily, Walters, Ronke, (Guelfi, Murphy)

    Looking at:
    Murray > Kerr
    Brayshaw > The Hoff
    Seeds > Gaff

    Anyone see any downsides or alternatives?

      Not at all.. Great trades!!

    • Dulcify

      Looking ahead to round 14, you currently have 11 playing, 12 if Murray comes back in. May I suggest that this week you trade Ronke, Walters and Seedsman, then bring in Ballard (if named), The Hoff and Gaff. These trades will give you 20 on field this week (providing they are all named) and improves your next week total to 14. Hope this helps. Good luck.

      • McGlovins

        June 14, 2018 at 1:44 pm

        Thanks for the advice Dulcify, if Murray comes back in I won’t be trading him. Not hopeful on that one though, so he’s likely gone.

        Ronke seems like a problem on the face of it but what if he kicks a bag again?

        Have to agree to disagree on Ballard, he is at best a 1-2 week rook and then I have to use up a trade to get rid of him or bleed cash. And then there’s his 13 a few weeks ago… ugh.

    Deciding between Wingard/Burton and dropping one of Seed/Gray

    Seed/Gray —> Yeo
    Guelfi —> Wilson
    Walters —> Burton/Wingard
    453k for next week (looking like a Doedee —> Crisp at this stage)
    Could go Walters up to the Hoff. Ideally want cash for next week though and wouldn’t mind taking a gamble on one of Burton/Wingard.

    Option 1:

    T Smith > Battle
    Doedee > Simpson/Hurn
    Gray > Westhoff
    31K left

    Option 2:
    T Smith > Battle
    English > Abbott
    Doedee > Simpson/Hurn
    $332k left

    Next week – Duman > J Smith, Spargo > Redman, Holman > Kelly/Gaff/Curnow

    Need to trade Laird, Phillips and Ah Chee no matter what to field 18 this week and next week.

    So looking at a few options:

    Laird –> Yeo
    Phillips –> Gaff
    Ah Chee –> Wingard
    (Leaving me with $8k)


    Laird –> DBJ
    Phillips –> Curnow
    Ah Chee –> Wingard
    (Leaving me with $62k)


    Laird –> Yeo
    Phillips –> Curnow
    Ah Chee –> Kerr (from Carlton)
    (Leaving me with $242k for next week)

    Thoughts would be great please?
