Get Them In!
Players your team needs
Two down; one to go! With 12 out of 18 teams already completed their bye, it’s all the players available this week that we will look at.
There are plenty of defenders to available to bring in on a lower than premo price tag this week with the best option between James Sicily and Tom Stewart. Both players are clear top 6 candidates in defence and are performing strongly in 2019. Besides those two popular choices, there are some POD’s to look into with the likes of Dane Rampe, Jason Johannisen and Harris Andrews excellent options. Rampe has dominated after his brain fade moments over a month ago, while Andrews and JJ are very consistent. There are a few other to keep an eye on but these are arguably the best of the bunch.
In the middle it’s a little harder to find any solid options to bring into your side this week with the likes of Tom Rockliff and Dom Sheed the only two worth having right now, but neither would be thought to be brought in this week.
Up forward is a plethora of players to choose from with Rowan Marshall and Robbie Gray the best options. Scott Lycett has put together two really good games and with Rory Lobb no longer an option, Lycett is the best alternative option. There is another forward option who is averaging 125 over his last 3 games since a change in roles and is only in 1% of teams – Darcy Parish. A real POD but only if you think he can manage to average 100 from now until the end of the season. Others include Jack Billings, Luke Dahlhaus and Jordan DeGoey.
- Tom Stewart (Def; $496,800; and 11.0% ownership)
- Robbie Gray (Fwd; $436,600; and 6.8%)
- Rowan Marshall (Fwd; $489,800; and 9.5%)
If you have them, keep them.
The players usually reserved for this section are now having their bye, meaning you should be upgrading most of them to a premo to round off a close to complete side. They are, however, a handful of players that may have the bye this week, but are still worth holding onto, if you could afford to do so. The likes ofMatt Crouch, Jacob Hopper, Dion Prestia, Lachie Weller, Brandon Ellis, Jack Ziebell and Heath Shaw have now shown enough to hold as your D6/M8/F6 and upgrade if the luxury allows in a few weeks. Now is not the time to burn trades.
Joining ‘Bite the Bullet’ and ‘Chopping Block’ together – a lot of tough calls.
We’re focussing on players from the Crows, Suns, Giants, Tigers, Kangas and Blues as they are now facing their bye week. In most cases, any mid-pricers selected at the start of the season were picked to be upgraded at their bye, so if you have any from round 13 bye teams, now is their time. The likes of Nic Newman, Brodie Smith, Jasper Pittard and Jarrod Polec are ready to be traded this week, whether they have successfully served their purpose or not. None will be worth holding onto throughout the season and now is the perfect time to part ways.
Good luck coaches and let me know your thoughts.
