Round 6 brings the end of the festival of football we’ve been spoilt with and brings the beginning of the more traditional fixture, providing us coaches with a bit more time to lock in teams with the full teams already released.
- Sam Collins – Def – $311,600
The costly rookie flirted with some big scores during rounds 2 to 4 but his inconsistency is worrying and with some fallen premo’s now available, seems like the right time to upgrade.
- Jack Scrimshaw – Def – $314,500
Will most likely increase in coaches trading out since he has been managed this week and will miss round 7. To most, that would suggest a good time to trade out, but if you are not hit with too many outs down back, I would suggest keeping with the feeling the youngster will get better as the season goes.
- Jordan Clark – Def – $240,900
Clark is currently sitting on the extended bench for Sunday’s clash so coaches owning him will be sweating on his selection, especially if they also have Whitfield and/or Scrimshaw (like myself). I’m punting on an 80-90+ game in the coming weeks to inject further cash generation.
- Charlie Constable – Mid – $303,000
Another who is throwing up questions to coaches after being omitted this week after looking like a potential bye round rookie keeper. Might be premature to trade at this stage but would depend on your players available.
- Tom Atkins – Mid – $232,500
He still has a little bit of cash to make and the fact he is still named in the Cats team suggests he needs to stay, but if you have coverage in the middle, he could be one to downgrade to Hayes.
- Michael Gibbons – Mid – $233,200
A negative breakeven confirms his spot for at least one more week. Not dependable to score well again but let him sit on your bench to make some cash.
- Willem Drew – Fwd/Mid – $293,700
Drew should be locked in for at least another week or two and with his ability to get a big score it could be longer and until the byes.
- Matthew Parker – Fwd – $225,100
His cash generation has slowed to a dribble in the last few weeks which is frustrating all of his owners but there is still more to be earned and no rookie downgrade options as yet.
- Gryan Miers – Fwd – $299,400
Plenty of cash left in Miers especially over the next few weeks. Continues to stay in the ladder leading Cats line-up so if he is good enough for them who am I to tell you otherwise.
- Tom Liberatore – Mid – $488,200
If Libba was selected in your team to make you some money while scoring well above his price point then firstly, well done; secondly, it’s time to move him on for one of the fallen premiums that are more likely to finish top 10 of their position.
- Brad Crouch – Mid – $466,500
Most likely just like Libba, Brouch was in your side to make some cash as a stepping stone to a premium midfielder but unlike Libba there is still some cash to be made for you.
- Dom Sheed – Mid – $420,100
Another like the two above, but Sheed has completely dropped in output and would certainly warrant being traded out to either a fallen premium or a rookie cash cow.
- Jade Gresham – Fwd – $436,700
Gresham has certainly slipped in output the past few weeks but I’m guessing if you have him, he was picked as an outside chance to be a top 10 forward. Should two poor games change that? It shouldn’t, and that’s why he shouldn’t be traded.
- Nic Newman – Def – $415,100
Newman has been cruelled by a knee injury that has him set to potentially miss the next three weeks and with that, a likely spot in your SC teams. Unfortunately, he doesn’t look set to make us a pile of cash but with some fallen premium defenders now ready for picking.
- Ryan Burton – Def – $409,400
The kid hasn’t quite lived up to some coaches’ expectations and with a high breakeven it’s time to cash in the small cash earned and upgrade to one of the many premium defenders on offering.
It’s always better to hold onto your premium players, you picked them for a reason and unless there is a significant role change, lengthy suspension or an injury obtained, you should hold. Considering no premiums fall into the above lists, there are no recommendations to trade on any this week.
Good luck coaches!
