are still plenty of injury concerns and ‘rested’ players, meaning you still might have a little work to do in order to get a full side out on the park. If you have any trades left, obviously they have to be used now – there is no tomorrow.
(1) Michael WALTERS (Av 89 - 1.5% of teams - Knee) . Replace with Matthew PAVLICH (Av 84)
(2) Michael JOHNSON (Av 87 – 1.9% of teams – Rested). Replace with Charlie DIXON (Av94)
(3) Hayden BALLANTYNE (Av 73 – 1.2% of teams – Rested). Replace with Josh J KENNEDY (Av 93)
(4) Nick SUBAN (Av 73 – 4.5% of teams – Hamstring). Replace with Charlie DIXON (Av 94)
(5) Zac CLARKE (Av 96 – 2.7% of teams – Rested). Replace with Matthew LUENBERGER (Av 99)
(6) David MUNDY (Av 104 – 5% of teams – Rested). Replace with Andrew WALKER (Av 105)
(7) Nat FYFE (Av 106 – 20% of teams – Rested). Replace with Patrick DANGERFIELD (Av 112)
(8) Zac DAWSON (Av 46 – 2% of teams – Rested). YOU’RE KIDDING ME! 2% of SUPERCOACH TEAMS HAVE ZAC DAWSON? LEAVE HIM IN - YOU DESERVE TO LOSE….
Anyway, back to business. Collingwood midfielder Luke BALL (Av 97) is another who will be missing this week, courtesy of a calf injury. Despite being considered a tantalizing SC prospect at the start of the year due to a drop in price caused by injury, BALL hasn’t really set the world on fire for the 9.5% of teams who have him and to top it off, is now missing for the biggest game of the year. He has to go, and if you have any trades left look to move him on for any of the following midfield stars – Luke HODGE (Av 98), Dustin MARTIN (Av 102), Josh KENNEDY (Av 106), Richard DOUGLAS
(Av 102) or Brent HARVEY (Av 103). KENNEDY against his old team in the Hawks might just get the nod from me.
After setting the world on fire early on in the year, Swans midfielder Dan HANNEBERRY (Av 95) is another that will be out this week, after injuring his knee last weekend. HANNEBERRY was flying in the first half of the season (and is a chance to be leading the Brownlow at the halfway point of the season) however he has slowed down in recent weeks and now has to be replaced in the 8% of lineups that still have him. The sad part is there isn’t a great deal to choose from – RIOLI was the
best bet but he’s also out, so bank on Carlton star Bryce GIBBS (Av 93) to have a big one against Port.
N.B. There are a number of other players out for various reasons (WARD, McLEAN, MERRETT, SHAW) however they are not popular enough to be mentioned here.
Well, that’s it for Trade Winds for season 2013. Hopefully you have got some value out of our suggestions, and they have assisted you in reaching a Grand Final this weekend. Good luck to all, and we look forward to going through it all again in season 2014.
