2021 Fantasy: Round 17 Top 5 Trade Targets Under $300K

Round 17 of the 2021 H&A season began on Thursday 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. Luke Pedlar (Adelaide) MID $260K BE 27

Pedlar made his AFL debut last week, he recorded 13 Disposals, 3 Marks & 1 Tackle for 49pts. He played on a wing & through the midfield against the Lions & showed very promising signs from a fantasy perspective. 

Pedlar should provide good bench cover in the short to medium term, his role should provide upside in his scoring output. 

Season Ave: 49.0

2. Leo Connolly (St Kilda) DEF/MID $210K BE 7

Connolly scored 39pts in Round 16, he recorded 12 Disposals & 4 Marks against Collingwood in windy conditions at the MCG. The role for Connolly was across half-back, he should have decent upside in scoring if that role can be maintained.

The ROI for Connolly should be solid in the short to medium term. 

Season Ave: 46.0

3. Jeremy Sharp (Gold Coast) MID $291K BE 2

Sharp has averaged 70.5pts from his 2 games this season, he has averaged 17.5 Disposals & 5.5 Marks. With just a low BE (Break Even) of 2 the ROI should still be pretty decent over the coming weeks, he should also provide decent midfield bench cover.

Season Ave: 70.5

4. Lachlan Bramble (Hawthorn) MID $242K BE -2

Bramble has shown genuine improvement since his debut in Round 14, he recorded 16 Disposals & 7 Marks in Round 16 for 65pts. He won most of his ball across half-back & between the arcs for the Hawks last week, at a low BE of -2 the ROI still should be pretty decent over the short to medium term.

Season Ave: 51.3

5. Denver Grainger-Barras (Hawthorn) DEF $256K BE 42

The low score of 28pts on debut for Grainger-Barras isn’t a reflection of his immediate impact at AFL level, unfortunately he was concussed after half time & didn’t play in the last Qtr. He will likely play across half-back in an intercepting marking role, he should have decent scoring potential in the short to medium term. 

Season Ave: 28.0
