If you're travelling well, 8 trades or more would be ideal at this stage, because including finals that equals one trade per week.
Who do I trade to, you ask? Here I'll list some unique but strong scoring options, all of which have had both their byes.
(Note that Sydney, Richmond and Brisbane have their final bye in a multi-bye round, so those clubs will be included here)
Sam Fisher, $486,300
Only 16% of teams have Fisher, which is suprising, considering he's been in the top 3 defenders all year. He's averaging 108 and although he scored only 38 on the weekend, don't expect that to happen again.
Chris Newman, $412,500
Consistent, reliable and for a high-scorer, pretty cheap. That's exactly what Newman is, and for an average of 99 its unusual that lots of Coaches have ignored the Tigers' captain this year.
Greg Broughton, $421,000
This guy frustrated a lot at the start of the year, but he has rewarded those that persisted in him, because Mark Harvey has granted him more time in the midfield. Four scores over 100 in his last six including a mammoth 145.
Ryan Giffen, $522,800
This guy is the exception to the list. If you can manage his last bye in the week before SC finals, then jump on Griffo. He's averaging 114 and dropped below 100 only three times this year, while playing every game. Plus, he's only in 3% of sides.
Nick Dal Santo, $531,200 (right)
It's amazing how you're popular in the midfield or you're not. Everyone has Judd, Swan, Pavlich, Pendlebury, Goddard etc, yet only 5% of sides have the Saints' main midfielder, after Lenny Hayes' injury. 174 last round, average of 117, no more byes, can you go wrong?
Dale Thomas, $505,100
You want another Collingwood midfielder because you already have Swan or Pendlebury; right? Look no further than the former number 2 draft pick, this guy is in the form of his life. He only played three quarters on the weekend, and still scored 146. He's unique - and not extremely expensive. If you can find the cash, he'll find you a reward.
Dean Cox, $500,400
After Aaron Sandilands went down, everyone in the competition should have Cox. Don't waste anymore time in getting him if you are yet to purchase him.
Darren Jolly, $395,300
He is the forgotten ruckman. He scored 89 last week against a rapidly improving Todd Goldstein, and you would expect Jolly to improve seeing as though he went to Arizona. He could be that X-Factor pick, that no-one else has.
Ben McEvoy, $523,700
The Saints' number 1 has been in fantastic form and has averaged more than 100 for the first time in his career. His price is probably at its peak, however if Sandilands is still on your bench, he has the potential to be a handy asset.
Forwards: (For many the hardest position of the year)
Colin Sylvia, $392,000
There really is slim pickings when it comes to the forward line at this stage, but Slyvia is a good, consisstent option. Average of 97.
Heath Grundy, $396,800
If you want to know what you're going to get each week, then Grundy's your man. He averages 90 and give or take a few points, that's exactly what he'll deliver for your side, week in, week out.
Leon Davis, $437,500
Didn't think I'd say this, but with an average of 108 from his last five matches, and his position in the side locked in for good, Davis could slot into your forward-line very comfortably. Seven 100+ scores in his last ten matches equals good quality in my books.
I sure hope that this will help some teams who are looking for that different player that can tear up the competition for the last eight rounds. Hawthorn have the bye this week, so afterwards keep an eye on Luke Hodge, Sam Mitchell and Grant Birchall.
