T’WAS The Traders’ final Thursday night podcast before Christmas, that’s because next week we are back to business with the naming of teams returning to where it belongs.

Despite not knowing the squads this week, unfortunately we do already have our trading hand forced on a couple of popular selections being named up to be missing in injured pair Jaidyn Stephenson (FWD/MID, $591,000) and Jai Bolton (FWD/MID, $652,000).

Under-priced targets include:

  • James Harmes, DEF, $515,000 Via DPP
  • James Worpel, MID, $582,000
  • Connor Rozee, FWD, $495,000

Keep an eye on Jordan Ridley (DEF, $614,000) who still has a BE of 127.

The Traders' Fantasy preview: round nine

James Harmes at $515k is a trade target for Roy and Warnie this week

Published on

Once again, a friendly reminder that the byes are just around the corner. You will receive three trades per week over this period so there is still time to structure up in preparation.

Round 12: Roos, Suns, Giants, Power, Cats, Hawks
Round 13: Tigers, Dogs, Eagles, Lions, Blues, Bombers
Round 14: Crows, Saints, Swans, Pies, Dockers, Demons

Although he isn’t a popular selection this year, Dee’s young gun Luke Jackson’s (FWD, $482,000) unfortunate injury has big Fantasy ramifications with Max Gawn (RUC, $818,000) set to take on a bigger load in the ruck department, and we know what his scores look like when that happens. He carries a BE of 148 after dropping $126K already this year but given his increased responsibility in the middle, a move to trade him in before officially bottoming out in price may be justifiable.
