  1. I’m quite keen on Devon Smith at Essendon. Will be listed as a FWD and has averaged 91 and 89 in 2014/15 but has moved for increased midfield time. Struggled in recent years with injury but if he has a full pre-season, he should come in around $430k which will be too good to pass up.

    1. Hear, hear.

      Since 2014 he has averaged 4.76 tackles a game (338 from the past 71 games) and a contested possession rate of 34.34% (478/1392) primarily playing forward.

      With his desire for increased midfield minutes being paramount for his departure from GWS hopefully he should be able to increase the aforementioned figures in excess of 5 (tackles) and 35% (contested possession rate) at Essendon.

      Time on Ground:
      2014, 2015 TOG: Only dipped below 80% TOG 2 from 41 matches.
      2016, 201717 TOG: 16/30 matches with TOG below 80%.

      Should feature heavily in 2018 forward lines.

      1. I’m an Essendon fan but based on his injury history and the lack of evidence that he can be dominant in the midfield means I have Petracca, Curnow and even Parish (if he’s duel) ahead of him at around the same price next year. Not a bad pick by any stretch and it makes sense but I’d rather go for a 3rd year breakout player at that price than hope a change of scenery can change the guys form and injury history.

        1. He will also not be playing pure midfield because Parish will be spending more time in there and the centre bounce will usually consist of Zaharakis, Heppell and Merrett.

  2. Also not trade-related, but since there will almost certainly be AFLW fantasy games next year, it will be worth giving some thought over the next few months.

    I suspect we will need to adjust our thinking for this, particularly in salary-cap based games, for two reason:

    a) The distribution of SuperCoach points is much more lopsided than it is in the men’s game; you often see players scoring 300+ points.

    b) The significantly shorter season means that unless the rate at which player prices change is greatly accelerated, guns and rookies isn’t likely to work.

    Point a) is also relevant in draft-based games.

    1. I think match day games for AFLW will be awesome! As you say Jack, It’ll be mid price madness that wins the day. You almost need to know who skipped breakfast or had an extra hours sleep in order to know who will or will not step up on any given day!

  3. Jake Lever to the Denons?! Sweet.

    Don’t think he is necessarily Super Coach relevant, but he is a great acquisition for the Dees! Super pumped being a fan of theirs.

    Also, glad to see the news! Wanted to send a big Post-AFL Season thank you(!) to everybody here on the site. Big thanks to the contributors for hosting us in this forum and through all the Leagues. Thanks to the community for another great year. As an international student of the game, I’ve learned so much from this place. Not only who the best players are for Super Coach (I still blew it!) but the great history of this sport.

    Legends, you’re all legends!

    – Nathan

    Go Dees!

  4. Really wishing all the best for Robbie Gray and hoping that he has very good recovery from his treatment.
    He will most likely be a forward only next year and I had him as a complete lock if he was over his groin troubles (which majorly affected his scoring at times last year), but do you think with Rockliff moving into their midfield he will be playing nearly all his footy in the forward line?
    I think Port know they look much more dangerous with him forward and I still see Wingard spending more time in the middle than him and SPP some more time there next year as well.
    If he’s playing 70-80% forward I only see him averaging 90 in which case I don’t want to pick him, but it could be substantially less. However, Rocky also said on trade radio he will be playing more forward time at Port than he did at Brisbane.
    Thoughts?

  5. SOS has never been this quiet during a trade period. Ever. Anyone else get the feeling Carlton might be plotting something big?

  6. Port Adelaide are down right winning this trade period. It’s costing them a fair bit of coin, however:

    IN: Rockliff, Watts, Motlop, 2017 pick 33/61 and 2 x 2018 4th rounds

    OUT: Ah Chee, Trengrove, Impey, 2017 pick 31/67

  7. Fremantle’s Lachie Weller requested a trade to the Gold Coast. Fremantle asked the Gold Coast for pick 2. Gold Coast told them to get stuffed. Who’s right?

    TU: Definitely worth pick 2
    TD: Tell them they’re dreaming

    1. Worth 2? No, but he’s not worth as late as 21 (next GCS pick) either. The fact that Weller is contracted makes a fair bit of difference. Should go around 10, the question is how you make that work.

      Weller + pick 5 for pick 2 + 21 may work, but I dunno, not sure who we’d specifically want to target at 2 over 5.

      I suspect if anything happens, it will be Weller for Matera with some pick swaps our way.

  8. Given that Brisbane has indicated that they would be willing to part with Schache for a late first round pick or even an early second rounder, I’m amazed that he hasn’t already been snapped up. I know that several clubs are actively considering it, but no one seems *that* keen.

    I know that he has been a in a bit of a form slump (homesickness may have something to do with this), but he was pick #2 for a reason, and talented key forwards don’t exactly grow on trees.

  9. Harrison Wigg to the Gold Coast is probably the most SuperCoach-relevant trade so far. He’s been terrific in the SANFL, but just hasn’t been able to crack the Crows’ best 22. He shouldn’t have any trouble doing that at the Gold Coast, and with his SANFL form and his mature body (he’s 21), he’ll be a must-have midfield rookie next year.

  10. Carlton has approached Adelaide about offloading Bryce Gibbs (NOT the other way around). Given their reluctance to part ways with him up until now, and the fact that Gibbs has not formally requested a trade, this bolsters my ‘SOS is plotting something big’ theory.

  11. Gibbs to Adelaide!

    Carlton get picks 10 and 16

    Adelaide get Gibbs and a future 2nd, possibly next years?

    Either way that’s a win-win for both clubs imo.

    The question is will Gibbs’ production/scoring go up next year in a better team? Or will his scoring decline as a more talented midfield steals points off of him?

    1. Still hasn’t been finalised. There is speculation it’s one 2017 and one 2018 first round pick, which would be better for Carlton given next years draft is stronger.

      1. Well shiet. Ignore me completely, the trade has been called off due to a misunderstanding. Carlton expected a future second as well, Adelaide didn’t agree to that.

        0

        0
      2. There’s also the question of whether Carlton might try to use one of its first round picks this year to orchestrate some other trades. Schache and Stringer both still there for the taking, for example.

        Also, St. Kilda has picks 7 and 8, and Richmond has picks 15 and 17, so there is a lot of scope for a pick slide or even a double pick slide (say, 3 for 7 + 8, then 8 for 15 + 17).

        Carlton’s other trade targets (Kennedy and Lang) won’t be too hard (in fact, it’s quite likely that they have already been negotiated, and that we’re just waiting for some other things to go through before finalising them), so there’s certainly scope to do other deals.

  12. Lachie Weller is somehow worth pick 2 now?

    Some clubs just completely lose their shit in the last ten minutes before the trade deadline.

  14. There should be an investigation into the Queensland clubs. Their combined deals today are the equivalent of the most disgusting tank you’ve ever seen.

  15. West Coast has traded away its 2018 first-round pick for three second-round picks in this year’s (much weaker) draft. This is a strange move in and of itself, but when you consider that West Coast could easily tumble down the ladder next year, it seems really dumb.

    1. There is a fair few WAFL guys in the draft that they will be hoping to pick up during the second-round, especially since there won’t be an allure to move home after 2 years. Must also be confident that next years draft pool will still have good talent by their first pick and when you combine the two years drafts, they come out on top.

      1. Yeah, fair point. But with all their retirements, I’m not overly confident about the Eagles’ prospects next year, so it’s still a risk.

    1. Personally don’t know if Gibbs is SuperCoach relevant next year in a fairly deep midfield although he won’t be tagged out of games like he has been in the past.
