I have moved this article to see if it will increase readership, which has declined slightly over the last few rounds. If you like our articles comment here or on our facebook page.
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 FOLD when it’s clear the player is no longer up to it and needs to face the axe in AFL Dream Team.
Remember all trades this round should only be done if they fit within your bye structure. Look to trade in round 11 players who have just completed their bye.
Paul Duffield (DEF) has averaged 100.4 over his last 5 and is valued at $465,700. Owned by only 4.04% of coaches, Duffield is one of the more unique defender options available. The Dockers also have one of the easiest draws to finish the season with 7 of the last 12 at home and games against only 3 current top 8 sides. Geelong (Round 14), West Coast (Round 16) and Carlton (Round 19). Another positive is the Dockers easy run home with games against GWS (H), Melbourne (A), Port Adelaide (H) and St. Kilda (A) to finish the season. All four games that will be in our AFL Fantasy Finals.
Michael Barlow (MID) has been in terrific form averaging 130 in his last 3 games. He is valued at $535,300 and has a breakeven of 76. Again similar to Duffield the easy draw will benefit Barlow and he could be one of the most popular choices come finals time.
Nathan Hrovat (MID) lived up to the hype of being a ball winner. Averaging 67.5 with a break even of -66 downgrade to him this round.
Tom Nicholls (Ruck) has been terrific in his two games this season averaging 94.5 points per game. Charlie Dixon is out injured joining fellow ruckman Zac Smith on the sideline. This is good news for Nicholls who should have a clear run as the number 1 ruckman for the Suns. Priced at $108,500 With a breakeven of -120 get him this week before he increases in price.
Joe Daniher (FWD) looked impressive against the blues scoring 60 points. He is still young and still needs more physical development. He is one of the most popular trade in targets this week, howver people should remember he does have the bye next week. Hold off until at least after his bye.
Mark Blicavs (RUCK/MID) has been one of the most traded out players this week. I don’t personally understand the logic. He was intentionally reseted before his bye. He will be back next week and could be the vital cover you need for a round 13 bye ruck man.
Matthew Boyd (MID) is incredibly well priced at $481,100 with a breakeven of 68. He is coming back from a calf injury, the second of the year, which does put doubt in your mind. With the additional trades this week i think he is worth the risk, but next week once the byes are over.
Majak Daw (Ruck) was a late withdraw last weekend on the Gold Coast because of the heavy rain. He has reached his peak and you should be looking to trade him out for Nicholls.
Sam Rowe (Ruck) & Daniel Currie (Ruck) fit into the same category as Majak Daw. Both have not played regularly and are burning a hole on your ruck bench. Trade them out for Nicholls this week.
Sam Kerridge (FWD/MID) valued at $329,000 has been dropped by the Crows and should also be dropped by your DreamTeam. He has been a terrific cash cow increasing by $220,500, but now sits with a breakeven of 117 and a bye next week. Kerridge is having the week off this weekend before playing SANFL for Sturt with Brent Reilly next weekend when the Crows have the bye.
Jimmy Bartel has been reported to be spending the week in the USA watching the NBA finals. Geelong have a history of resting players and I would not be surprised if he missed the following Round 13 game. Speculation only not fact.
