This week on the SuperCoach Sanctum PODcast Will Cuckson, Jasper Chellappah and Matt Forrest discussed SuperCoach trade options and who your trade-in targets should be for round 16.

Back to a full nine game slate of action means there are trade options everywhere as we try to finish off our teams before the run home to SuperCoach glory.

On the SuperCoach Sanctum PODcast, the boys discussed who the top six defenders, top eight mids, top two rucks and top six forwards will be for the final nine weeks of the AFL season.

SuperCoach Trade In Options

Defenders

Daniel Rich ($520,200 – BE 89 – AVE 105)

Rich has the opportunity to become a top six defender in the final eight games of the season – such is his good run.

He’s already averaging 105 points which is a good mark, but he hasn’t set the world on fire in the last few weeks, until last round against Geelong. His run home is glorious – bottom 10 teams the Crows, Saints, Hawks, Suns, Dockers and Pies will all make for a lot of points. He will be chasing an All Australian blazer and maybe even a Best and Fairest so there is a lot for him to play for still.

Also consider: Jordan Ridley ($470,900), or Lachie Whitfield ($521,900).

Midfielders

Sam Walsh ($545,100 – BE 119 – AVE 113)

Walsh gave everyone a reminder of what he could do on the weekend, setting a career high for touches after getting tagged the week prior. He had 131 is a sign of good form, and the Blues are looking to get the ball in his hands as much as ever right now with Sam Docherty on the sidelines.

This week he comes up against Freo, where he could go big after scoring 124 points against them earlier in the season. Justin Longmuir has stated he is opting against tagging Walsh with Serong this week, so look for the ball magnet to go big again.

Also consider: Andrew Brayshaw ($517,000) or Jack Steele ($638,400).

Forwards

Dayne Zorko ($649,000 – BE 86 – AVE 114)

If he wasn’t already the biggest must have in the competition right now, Zorko is set to explode with Lachie Neale missing the next few games with a calf problem. The hard-hitting, classy fwd/mid scored 174 on the weekend to make up for his suspension the week prior.

Expect him to get all the mid time in the world with Neale out, and he may even crack 200 points at some point, such is the form the underrated – albeit angry – star is in.

Also consider: Patrick Dangerfield ($495,300).
