Cash Cows – Round 16

This is the time of the year where we aren’t really looking at cash cows coming through in the limited trade formats. Cash generation should now be completed. We should be just shuffling the deckchairs from now on trying to get the best completed team we can! I will fight through though and deliver these until the weeks disappear.

I hope you all jumped on the boy known as Georgie last week! Absolutely ripping game from the running half forward wingman Castagna. Loved what he provided for the Tigers and he should now play the remaining games for 2016 if fit! The Tigers and Dimma Hardwick will be looking to take something out of this year so won’t hesitate to play the kids. He is my number 1 downgrade option this week for AFL Fantasy. Hopefully the kid grabs his chance.

How good was this guy on Friday night! Aliir Aliir played like a 200 gamer. His teammates showed plenty of trust in the big kid as well! Swans have found another one. His reading of the play was outstanding and I would be very surprised to see him dropped now. Has the frame to play on the monster forwards as well! Great to see.

I wouldn’t be a serious Tiger supporter if I didn’t name this kid this week! Oleg Markov had a debut for the ages. He played off half back, has an abundance of speed and makes good decisions. Plenty to like about this kid but expect him to be inconsistent. Not convinced he is the perfect fantasy downgrade option, but that ‘mo’ makes up for it!

Clay Smith has had zero luck the last few years. He is a tackling machine! Loves the contest. My big query however is what role does he play when Dahlhaus is back? I think he is only a AFL Fantasy option personally as of this unknown. The one thing that is known however is Smith can play! Given the current opportunity he has, he might just do enough to make it impossible to drop him.

The ‘Beast’ has gone full Beast mode! Mathieson has hunted the ball and man since his return to the senior team. Puts his head over the ball and makes the Lions midfield better. If I was Leppa, I would want to get as many games into this kid as humanly possible. Too good for the NEAFL!

Ryan Clarke was a late in on the weekend but he provided something the Roos are screaming for. Leg speed! Had a great debut and should hold his spot in the team for at least another round. Just needs to tidy up his disposal and decision making but showed plenty. Plays for a very unfriendly DT team however so it is with no confidence that I could pick the kid!

Any questions about anyone in particular just flick it to me @CoachRids or on the Coaches Panel facebook page here.
