The 2018 Trade Period saw 31 trades completed and a host of players and draft picks switch clubs.

Our reporters give their take on each club's best 22 after all the trades have been done.

B: Jake Kelly, Daniel Talia, Luke Brown
HB: Rory Laird, Kyle Hartigan, David Mackay
C: Bryce Gibbs, Rory Sloane, Rory Atkins
HF: Tom Lynch, Taylor Walker, Riley Knight
F: Eddie Betts, Josh Jenkins, Mitch McGovern
R: Sam Jacobs, Matt Crouch, Brad Crouch
INT:  Paul Seedsman, Richard Douglas, Wayne Milera, Hugh Greenwood

NOTES: Bryce Gibbs slots straight into the side and bolsters the Crows' midfield. He can also fill-in across half-back with Brodie Smith set to miss most of the season. North Melbourne veteran Sam Gibson provides extra depth to the midfield after playing 130 games with the Kangaroos, but I can't find a spot for him in the club's best 22. The same goes for utility Andy Otten and second-year player Jordan Gallucci. Curtly Hampton will also be pushing to regain his spot after an ankle injury ruined the second half of his 2017 campaign.

NOT CONSIDERED: Brodie Smith (ACL – will battle to be back before finals)

REMAINING SENIOR LIST: Kyle Cheney, Ben Davis, Harry Dear, Tom Doedee, Cam Ellis-Yolmen, Sam Gibson, Curtly Hampton, Elliott Himmelberg, Andy Otten, Myles Poholke, Reilly O'Brien, Matthew Signorello. 

REMAINING ROOKIE LIST: Jonathon Beech, Ben Jarman, Paul Hunter, Alex Keath - Lee Gaskin
