Dunkley



Never looked at Duncan, better than I thought. History suggests 107-110 player, doesn't have the high ceiling of others.

Kelly higher average and risk of missing games. Paired with Hately probably ok.

Olivier - similar scores to Duncan yet can punch a couple more big scores out.

Kelly for me. Whilst Olivier looks better, Geelong's run home is better and would put Duncan ahead of Clay.

Merrett vs Rocky for M8 - can get Rocky now, Merrett down the line (JKelly in this week is 1st trade). Going for league. If no Rocky, roll money towards Whitfield/Lloyd etc in two weeks.
I think both are quite good picks, and that it's a close call given their prices. Rocky actually has a similar average to Merrett ex his concussion, but Merrett is very durable and Rocky is ... not.

Ultimately I'd go Merrett if you are already taking a fair bit of injury risk/looking pretty good for cash, and vice versa.

Sloane may have tags from Hutchings and De Boer coming up... he feels like a great one to have started but doesn’t have that much value as a trade in.

I’d look to grab the Neale, Macrae, Oliver, Fyfe, Zerrett, JKelly types as trade ins who seem to have better scoring ceilings

Fyfe vs Kelly vs Macrae
Fyfe a clear absolute number one for me - he’s averaging Neale numbers without the concussion game (128 avg) and has the history but is still under $600k. Some say injury risk, but I think you can say all of these mids have had historical injury concerns tbh.

After that Macrae due to bottomed out price and form in the last 18 months (he’s coming in for me this round).

JKelly last behind all the names in my previous post (unless you have heaps of trades still, most here probably dont). He’s a genuine and more immediate injury risk as that groin issue is still lingering, given that he was out with it only two weeks ago! I’m expecting to have to burn an injury trade on him at some point....

Just listed my whole midfield after RD9. :p:eek::cool:;)

Adelaide Oval Wins: 122.16 from 38 (8/38 below 100, 21/38 120+)
2014: 123.5 from 6
2015: 128 from 6
2016: 117.7 from 10
2017: 129.22 from 10
2018: 115.6 from 5
2019: 107.5 from 2

Wins: 114.96 from 91 (28/91 below 100, 39/91 120+)
2012: 112.06 from 16
2013: 114.9 from 10
2014: 125.82 from 11
2015: 116.82 from 11
2016: 110.94 from 16
2017: 119.33 from 15
2018: 105.71 from 7
2019: 107.2 from 5

Losses: 96.88 from 51 (27/51 below 100, 7/51 120+)
2012: 87 from 5
2013: 99.82 from 11
2014: 103.73 from 11
2015: 80.6 from 5
2016: 101.2 from 5
2017: 98.17 from 6
2018: 83.8 from 5
2019: 116.67 from 3

Sloane amassed his lowest averages in several stat categories (disposals, kicks, marks, disposal efficiency, etc) for the past 6-7 years in 2018.

E Yeo:
Inc 2019 has averaged 24.25 disposals since 2018.
SC avg when disposals equal/exceed 25: 118.38 from 16 (low of 83 and a high of 150, 2/16 below 100, 7/16 120+)
SC avg when disposals below 25: 91.57 from 14 (low of 27 and a high of 120, 9/14 below 100, 1/14 120+)

Wins: 106.75 from 32 (12/32 below 100, 9/32 120+)
2017: 112.09 from 11
2018: 104.06 from 16
2019: 103.6 from 5

Losses: 100.21 from 19 (10/19 below 100, 4/19 120+)
2017: 91.1 from 10
2018: 118 from 6
2019: 95 from 3

2019:
RD1-4: 11 tackles for a sc avg of 88.5.
RD5-8: 33 tackles for a sc avg of 112.25

18 clangers in RD1 and RD2 and 16 clangers since.

Both great selections with the potential to average 110+, around the same price range, possess the same game style (contested) and are not dependent on amassing a large amount of the ball which is a great trait.

Hard to separate both but the key influence on your decision would be your bye structure and if you can afford to carry Sloane through.

Ideally Macrae and Zerrett would be my last two mid upgrades...no way I can swing the cash for them at this stage unless I go early on ROB. Was looking at options I could afford this week and Sloane and Yeo were it.

Brilliant stuff as always! Might keep my powder dry for another week while sweating on all my borderline rookies.

If both are named who do I trade first: Scrimshaw or Drew? I feel like Scrimshaw was on the verge of big scores before he got cooked against the blues and before he got a migraine against the giants (was on track for 115) so he's more likely to have a spike game. Drew might get more mid time against poor opponents the next few weeks but he appears to have flatlined.

Who’s the better player to keep for the short to medium term, Walsh or Moore? One will become Dunkley for me this week...

Also struggling to split Stocker vs Hately. Hoping teamsheets decide it for me

Wait until final teamsheets but I’d likely move Scrimshaw first. A fair bit of chatter that Drew won’t make Port’s 22 this week FWIW

I’d keep Moore. Walsh may be hitting a wall and Moore has DPP, which should be handy through the byes.
