FANTASY Classic coaches are trying to improve their teams through upgrades and downgrades. This means that they need to trade out their cash cows for cheaper ones coming through.
The challenge for many is choosing which player should be held on to and who can be let go.
An easy player to trade out is Errol Gulden (MID/FWD, $460k). The Swan scored 44 points in round eight and dropped $24k in value after peaking at $495k in round six. While many are pleased with his 74 average, his breakeven of 88 doesn’t seem achievable considering his last three-game average is 53.
On the other hand, team mate Chad Warner (MID/FWD, $516k) has a breakeven of 74 but has averaged 77 in his last three matches.
The Swans have the final bye (round 14) and could be held for rounds 12 and 13 for the all-important cover needed when trying to field your best 18 players.
Roy, Calvin and Warnie chat through which players to cash in as you look to build your team over the next few weeks.
