You look at  Sydney Swan Josh Kennedy's [MID, $378,500] price and you think, woah, how can it be so low?

Three poor games in a row have been a contributing factor, but the fact is Kennedy is still a very valuable player to have.

The Swans have some big games coming up – against Geelong and Hawthorn – so back Kennedy in and reap the rewards of sticking with a tried and true star.

We've patiently waited for Garrick Ibbotson [DEF, $387,500] to make his triumphant return.

But it's got to the point where we've waited long enough. Ibbotson has missed the past three games with an Achilles problem – right at the point of the season you simply must have your guns up and firing.

Lion Pearce Hanley [DEF,$429,000] appears to be the most popular trade, while Cats star Corey Enright [DEF, $421,700] offers plenty of bang for your buck.

If you're looking for a relatively cheap – but consistent midfield scorer – then look no further than Travis Boak [MID, $442,100].

Boak has averaged 103 fantasy points in his last five games and constantly accumulated possessions against the Cats at Simonds Stadium last week.

With his team looking to cement its finals spot, look for the skipper to lead the way.

That hurts
Melbourne youngster Mitch Clisby [DEF, $288,800] was the perfect depth player to take into a finals campaign.

But his acceptance of a three-game ban from the Match Review Panel puts everyone on the back foot.

Again Hanley [DEF, $429,000] looks to be a solid option – if you've got some cash spare. However, if you're looking to free up money for another prime midfielder then the Power's Nathan Blee [DEF, $115,900] should come into consideration.

Surprise packet
Who would have thought we would be talking about AFL Fantasy and Jarrad Grant [FWD, $376,100] in the same sentence?

Well we are, and for good reason. Grant cracked the Fantasy ton last weekend, capping off a solid month in his return to AFL football.

He is more confident and, now that he's assured of his place in Brendan McCartney's Bulldogs outfit, Grant is starting to prosper.

A dark-horse forward option heading into the second week of finals.
