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.
Thomas Couch (Melb) $94,700, MID/FOR
Finally he gets his reward, after some great form in the VFL. Named in the best eight times this year so far.
Mark Baguley (Ess) $94,700, DEF/MID
The mature-aged Baguley has been plying his trade in the VFL for years, and finally gets his chance. He's certainly ready.
Josh Hall (GC) $94,700, RUCK
Hall only took up AFL last year after being a promising high-jumper. Wouldn't consider him yet.
Sam Dunell (St.K) $108,700 MID
Just promoted off the rookie list this week, obviously Watters has him in mind to fill a hole. He's got some height and serious endurance.
Jackson Sheringham (Geel) $94,700, MID
Has been on the Cats' list for a little while, but this is his first opportunity. He's another mature-aged player, so expect him to fit in.
Josh Walker (Geel) $113,200, FOR
Walker is a huge 19 year old, and will be played as a key forward, possibly to help out in ruck too, like Dawson Simpson.
Luke Brown (Adel) $106,600, DEF/MID
While he may find it hard to hold his spot in the impressive Crows' side, Brown is an exciting and versatile utility.
Luke Lowden (Haw) $113,200, RUCK
With all of Hawthorn's ruck problems in the past, I thought Lowden would've got a game earlier. Now is his chance though, and in his fourth year of AFL, he must take it.
Fraser McInnes (WCE) $113,200, DEF
McInnes is a key forward who may well play a part this week with Kennedy, Lynch and LeCras out of the Eagles side.
About to burst:
Murray Newman (WCE) $106,600, MID, Ave: 31
The well-built 18 year old has been the sub for West Coast, but knows how to find the footy and will, if he gets a full crack at it.
Tom Jonas (Port) $184,300, DEF, Ave: 59
Jonas is a bit of a swing man for the Power, and is starting to find a niche down back. Had 14 disposals against the Cats. You could do a lot worse.
Adam Goodes (Syd) $446,900, MID/FOR, Ave: 97 - BE: 50
After a quad injury two months ago, Goodes returned slowly against the Cats, built up agianst the Giants and then dominated the Lions. He's back, and cheaper than ever.
Shaun Burgoyne (Haw) $438,500, MID/DEF, Ave: 85 - BE: 53
Even though Burgoyne hasn't excelled this year, we all know what he is capable of. He will score hundreds, and is very affordable.
Bryce Gibbs (Carl) $424,200, MID, Ave: 89 - BE: 57
A number one draft pick. A decent side. A young player, with plenty of improvement to come. Are these pros enough to convince you?
