This Week in AFL Fantasy

Round 22 – Who stays and who goes.

We have one more game and one last chance to improve your standing. Definitely look at who your players are playing and trade accordingly.
Sadly this will be my last “Rage Trade” article for the year but I’ll be following up with my thoughts for a synopsis (or autopsy) of 2018.

Break-Evens

With one game to go, there’s no point looking at break-evens. At this stage I just suggest having a heart-beat on the bench. The risk during this time of year is final bound teams resting players – and last minute outs aren’t unheard of.

Noticeable Outs from Injury

Please see the following article to give you the full snap-shot of Injuries

Stay or Trade?

Eddie Betts (40) – Forward pockets are seldom fantasy relevant. Many rookies average more. Trade

Aiden Bonar (36) – Bench cover. Has some coin for a final upgrade. Keep

Ben Brown (38) – Tall forwards are rarely consistent and should not be owned. Trade

Darcy Byrne-Jones (27) – Played a tagging role on Sidebottom (which failed). Trade

Jason Castagna (37) – Hurt his quad during the game but played on. Trade him if you have him. Injured

Charlie Curnow (44) – Key position forwards are rarely consistent. Trade

Brent Daniels (24) – Bench cover. Keep

Jack Darling (3) – Head hit the turf in a McDonald tackle. Injured

Kane Farrell (26) – Bench cover. Keep

Jeremy Finlayson (32) – Gave away 4 frees and limped off during the game – but came back on before the end. Bench cover. Keep

Bayley Fritsch (50) – Perfect player to upgrade. Trade

Jarryn Geary (37) – Tagging Smith. On the receiving end of a knee to the head in a tackle. Injured

Matt Guelfi (39) – Has value, so is perfect to downtrade and finalize your team. Trade

Jack Higgins (40) – Has value, so is perfect to downtrade and finalize your team. Trade

Lachlan Keeffe (25) – Bench cover. Keep

Ed Langdon (51) – If you have him, I’d upgrade him. Trade

Touk Miller (50) – Played a tagging role on Zorko. I’d upgrade him if I had him. Trade

Aaron Mullett (35) – Has some value, so is perfect to downtrade and finalize your team. Trade

Clayton Oliver (75) – Tagged by Hutchings. Still one of the premium mids. Keep

Alex Pearce (21) – Bench cover if you have him. Keep

Christian Petracca (49) – Has been inconsistent this year again. Perfect player to upgrade from. Keep

Sam Petrevski-Seton (48) – Apart from a blood rule he seemed ok. Simply doesn’t average enough for this part of the season but is too expensive for the bench. Trade

Cameron Polson (19) – Bench cover. Keep

Ben Ronke (42) – Worth some coin for your last upgrade. Keep

Liam Ryan (29) – Bench cover. Keep

Scott Selwood (44) – Got a poked eye during the game. I’d trade him if I had him though. Trade

Isaac Smith (54) – Tagged by Geary. Has another difficult game in Hawthorn. I’m trading him. Trade

Charlie Spargo (41) – Played forward on Hurn. Good player to dissolve for some last minute cash. Trade

Michael Walters (38) – Not a top forward this year. Trade

Alex Witherden (15) – The popular trade target pulled a hamstring and won’t play next week. Injured
