Freshmen (newbies): Guys named for their first match of their career, or guys coming back from injury who are dirt cheap.
About to burst: These fellas have played two matches this year, and if you don't jump on them this round, their price will explode. Basically just a warning signal.
Cheapened stars: They may not have exactly 'fallen from grace', but it's not unusual for a gun to average 100 yet still see a price drop of $100,000. These guys are the perfect trade-up targets, and a smart selection here is just as important as picking the right rookie.
Tom Campbell (WB) $94,700, RUCK
Straight off the rookie-list, in to cover Will Minson. The bad news is he could be straight back there when 'Mino' returns.
Troy Davis (Melb), $113,200, DEF
Another key defender who has earnt his spot on the Melbourne senior list.
Will Sierakowski (NM) $113,200, DEF
Made the move from Hawthorn in the off-season, and you would think North picked him to fill a gap. Versatile defender, let's hope he sees plenty of game time.
About to burst:
Hayden Crozier (Freo) $106,600 MID/FOR - Averaging 42
Just one trade-down this week. Exciting forward Crozier must sure up his spot while Ballantyne and Hill are out.
Travis Cloke (Coll) $396,600, FOR, Ave 88 - BE: 9
Cloke's price has hit rock bottom, so if you want to invest in the Pies' big man, now is the time.
Jude Bolton (Syd) $491,600, MID, Ave 97 - BE: 20
If you're looking for a cheap, reliable and consistent midfielder - Bolton is your man. His durability is incredible, and a massive 160+ isn't beyond him, even into his latter years.
Jon Griffin (Fre) $454,600, RUCK, Ave 91 - BE: 115
Griffin relishes any opportunity without Aaron Sandilands, and it clearly showed last match against Richmond, even in the pouring rain he gathered 117 SC points.
