Dreamteam Round3 TRADE TALK

Hey DT Coaches,

Baker here with my weekly TRADE TALK, where I discuss “How to Break Even” and stay ahead of the pack.

My strategy this year is to trade up like the stockmarket every week that I can to make as much money as possible to upgrade my team ASAP!

The key to doing this is Break Evens.

Rules of Break Evens (BE)

Rule No 1. – Every week all players have a BE. This is a score they must achieve in order to either stay at their current value, and will determine whether they go up or down in value.

Rule No 2. – BE only comes into effect at round 3. All players that have played through rounds 1, 2 and 3 will have their values adjusted according to how well they did against their BE score.

Rule No 3. – If a player misses a game they will not change in value until they earn a spot back in the team.

Rule No 4. – If a player gets injured mid game and is substituted off (eg. Mitch Robinson FML!) or comes on as a substitute for another player (eg. Kane Mitchell FML!) this score is still counted towards their BE.

Baker’s Best Buys

  1. Jaeger O’Meara – Must have rookie.
  2. Brett Goodes – Must have rookie.
  3. Oliver Wines – Must have rookie.
  4. Jack Viney – Must have rookie (Even if Melbourne get pumped every week)
  5. Josh J. Kennedy – Good, reliable forward that is under-priced.

 Baker’s Offloads

  1. Brock McLean – Losing $56,000 is ridiculous.
  2. Darren Jolly – Normally reliable but buy back once he is injury free.
  3. Mitch Robinson – Normally a keeper but much of a hit so early in season.
  4. Toby Greene – Cant sneak under the radar any more.
  5. Mitchell Clark – Melbourne’s midfield are not giving any service to Mitch.

Baker’s Keys to BEs

  • Look for guns that have under-performed and are on the comeback.
  • If a player is going to miss his BE and lose substantial money, trade them unless they are part of your long term plans.
  • Look for rookies that are going to go up in value fast. If one is under-performing, trade them for another rookie that will make you money. No time for sentiment.

Good Luck DT Coaches!

  1. Sensational Baker!
    Great advice for every single Dreamteamer!

    If you can make a quick trade like Mitch Robinson -> Josh Kennedy… you are laughing!
