The 2019 Draft and Trade Targets Thread

Fantasy trade/draft pick wish list V2, if Laird is not on the trade table.

If P2: draft Anderson, Langdon (trading 2nd round), Tomlinson, Elliot:

If P3: split picks, draft Stephens and Weightman, the rest as above.

and if this rumour is true that we're after weightman (should we get pick 3 & split the pick with gws) what happens if he isn't there? we get stephens (a runner) and what other small forward type i wonder? there's a few options, but all not worth splitting the pick in my opinon. they'd better be damn sure that the first 13 or so clubs with picks don't want weightman either.

Connor Menadue should be a player we are seriously looking at!

On the Road To The Draft Podcast this week, they said Weightman could go between 10-20. So he has been moving up the draft order. I would also like to know which news said we were looking at him yesterday too, I couldn’t find any mention. I think he is exactly what we need though. Please don’t draft another inside mid!

yeah i heard that podcast.. but surely a club is taking him before a tall that may not work out around the 10-15 range. he looks pretty good to go. we shall see, but seriously doubt the club would take him at 3 if we kept that, i reckon ash would be more of a chance

Matt Balmer's latest ranking of the top 30 prospects post NAB league prelim final. Rowell still at the top, but Anderson not far behind.  Weightman ranked 19. FWIW, if splitting the pick involves one of the picks falling beyond pick 14 or 15, I'd be ropable:

What if we were able to land Caldwell with those two first rounders from GWS? Would that change your view?

Freo will want one of them for Langdon pick 15 currently likely to get pushed back a few spots.

I like Caldwell, though he's not quite what we need in midfield. He can spread and play on the outside, but another whose game is focused on winning the ball on the inside.

It would be a decent trade in isolation, but should we just be taking one of Ash/Young/Stephens?

I'd still have some discomfort (admittedly lessened) even if Caldwell were added to the deal.

Fair enough mate. You know the kids a lot better than I do, so if you think Ash/Young/Stephens are where it's at, it's certainly worth thinking about.

Stretch has no trade value. He’s a third round pick who’s been injured and failed to crack a role at afl level. He’d be worth a token pick 70-80 to get him where he wants to go if he wants to leave.

Most of our depth like Wagner, JKH etc have no trade value either.

Agree. Stretch just does not have a single AFL level trait that sets him apart. Good endurance runner but doesn't cover the ground with speed. Poor kick, slight frame, average at everything else.

I reckon he is pretty good kick actually. His issue is that so often he holds the ball up and does not release straight away

we have 3 of those that are clogging our list, Stretch and ANB and JKH.. they have no redeeming features as player, Billy and ANB are good runners, but like you say average at best at the other very important facets of the game. to have them both on the list next season would be crazy, and i believe ANB has re-signed, so JKH and or Billy have to go, we have seen enough.

Is Lewis Taylor from Brisbane worth a look? He seems to have fallen out of favour up there?

yep, i think so, obviously for a packet of chips, but i think so, and i would swap a JKH for Lewis Taylor.. change of environments can do wonders for players.. why not, we should consider everyone.

Don't think Lewis Taylor will go for a packet of chips. IMO a late 2nd rounder, about mid 30s, would be around the mark.

He played 5 games all season and is OOC.

I'd be offering a 4th rounder for him.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo
