2021 Fantasy: Round 9 Top 5 Trade Targets Under $300K

Round 9 of the 2021 H&A season begins on Friday night, @aflratingsPete ranks the Top 5 Trade Targets Under $300K in AFL Fantasy classic. 

The following list is a balanced opinion of which players to target, the comments are important to acknowledge; ability, playing role, job security, cash generation & potential scoring output have an influence on the rank. 

1.Riley Collier-Dawkins (Richmond) MID $232K BE -10

RCD appears to have settled in quite nicely at AFL level, the injury situation to the Richmond midfield provides extra security for his role & position in the team for the short to medium period at least. 

The BE (Break Even) for Collier-Dawkins is quite healthy, he remains a target & should provide a decent ROI. 

Season Ave: 63.5

2. Ryan Byrnes (St Kilda) MID $240K BE -10

Byrnes was quite solid again for the Saints last week, he has averaged 17.0 Disposals & 7.0 Marks from his 2 games this season. He’ll likely slot into a wing type role again in Round 9, his short to medium term position in the team appears to be solid. 

Byrnes likely remains a good investment at $240K, his BE (Break Even) is quite healthy. 

Season Ave: 66.5

3. Caleb Poulter (Collingwood) MID/FWD $254K BE 4

Poulter was once again solid last week against Nth Melbourne, he’s averaged 58.5pts from his 2 games at AFL level. His role on a wing can provide him decent fantasy scoring opportunities throughout a game.

If Poulter can hold his spot in the short to medium term, his ROI should be quite decent. 

Season Ave: 58.5

4. Ronin O’Connor (Adelaide) MID $170K BE 25

O’Connor will make his AFL debut in Round 9, he is averaging 17.5 Disposals, 3.8 Marks & 4.8 Tackles in the SANFL this season. He’ll likely play through a midfield/forward role for the Crows early in his career, he’s played quite a bit through an inside midfield role in the SANFL this year. 

If O’Connor can establish himself quickly at AFL level then he should see a decent amount of opportunities. 

Season Ave: N/A

5. Tom Highmore (St Kilda) DEF $240K BE 3

Highmore returns to the Saints team this week, he averaged 57.5pts from his opening 2 games of the season. He’ll likely return to a defensive role, he is averaging 14.0 Disposals & 2.5 Marks this season. A longer stint in the team will increase the ROI for those that have waited on Highmore to return, he’s still a viable option to trade-in. 

Season Ave: 57.5
