We’ll help you make the decision on whether to make the CALL and pick the player up, HOLD firm in the face of poor scores or and FOLD when it’s clear the player is no longer up to it and needs to face the axe.
NINE rounds into the AFL season and the HYPE surrounding some of our prized AFL Dream Team is starting to get real interesting.
Travis Cloke. What were 13.66% of people thinking? With a season low of 24 and only one hundred (103 in round 4 against Port) is proof Big Power Forwards are to inconsistent when it comes to AFL DreamTeam.
Thomas Bugg is one player who has hit the proverbial Rookie Wall. Started with a bang and is now struggling to cope with the demands of a long AFL Season. If you can ind someone to be your first emergency then trading out Bugg is a good idea while his price is still relatively high. Otherwise place him as your first emergency and expect him to average 50-60 points per game (ppg).
Kyle Horsley is another who had a disappointing game in Round 9. After averaging 106.75 in his first 4 games he capped off the weekends round with a below par score of 52 against an average Port Adelaide side. Questions have to be asked whether Abletts inclusion back into the side and in particular spending more time in the midfield this weekend has had an impact on the role Horsley is playing. My advice is to keep him at least until the Round 13 bye. Every player is entitled to a poor round and i’d be surprised if he did not bounce back with a decent score. It’s questionable whether he will average 100+ a week but he may realistically average 85 ppg and become that elusive 6th midfielder.
Dayne Beams is in amazing form at the moment scores of 132, 100, 122, 137 and 121 in his last 5 have skyrocketed his value. He is the MUST have Forward of all dream teams. His price is high but you are paying for quality and consistence.
Trade of the Week advice
Cloke or any under performing player for Beams… NOW!
