Dream Team Stock Market – R17


Here’s the weekly analysis of the movers, shakers and losers in the Dream Team Stock Market, where we take a close look at the movement of a selection of players, attempt to do a little short-term forecasting on the sliders and check out a few bargain blue-chips. For the newer players to the wonderful world of DT, this is a relatively simple guide to getting the most out of your money/team.

So… How did you go? In last week’s preamble, I was singing the praises of one Gary Ablett Jr. This week I offer my commiserations to all who skippered him on the weekend (including me!). Not to worry, the gun-and-a-half has been spotted training normally this week and he has twotted himself as ‘good to go’ this weekend.

It was one of those weeks where DT scores were either fantastic (2100+) or poor (sub-1900). Generally, coaches with Swan as captain racked up excellent scores and moved up the leaderboard – top stuff! West Coast are stamping their authority on the competition and are showing signs of a genuine Top 4 side. With a good run in the remaining home-and-away games, Eagles guns might be worth a look if you’re after a unique or two in DT finals.

The Dream Team Stock Market was fairly stable, so I doubt there will be any names in the analysis that will surprise. It has to be said that as we start the run to our fantasy finals, trades are absolutely critical, with your decisions bearing heavily on your team’s future success or failure. The only advice I have is: trade wisely!

Sell, Sell, Sell

Allen Christensen – $219,700 UP$28,500 (UP$122,100) BE43. Christensen has racked up a couple of handy scores lately, including a 73 and 109, which has pushed his value up over the past three rounds from $163,900 to $219,700. His current price won’t last, as his pattern of scoring has tended to be in the 20-50 range, so look to offload him soon and cash in on his sharp rise.

  • Stock tip: Sell between now and R18 and bank a very healthy $120k+.

Jack Darling – $209,700 DOWN$4,700 (UP$117,200) BE51. After peaking at $273,400, jumpin’ Jack’s scoring has really dropped off recently, putting in 48, 66 and 44 in his last three games. His slide has been a slight disappointment after his name was thrown around as a possible F7 keeper earlier in the season. His value is forecast to float up to maybe $225k by the end of the season, which is too little, too late for some.

  • Stock tip: Projected to rise $4,200 next week; sell now and gain $117,200.

Michael Hibberd – $237,500 DOWN$4,400 (UP$145,000) BE56. Doc Hibberd has been an excellent short-term earner and looks set to top out at around $250k. If you need liquidity, he’s one stock you can sell off anytime now, but with an average of 70 and DEF/MID DPP, he’ll probably be bench cover for the rest of the season for his coaches.

  • Stock tip: Sell this week and make an excellent $145,000.

Nathan Vardy – $168,700 DOWN$11,300 (UP$71,100) BE70. Much was expected of big Vardy after scores of 70 and 77 in his second and third games, but his next four have been 58, 49, 32 and 30. It’s not really surprising considering that those last two thirty-somethings were in losses, but they’ve hurt his value. He’s projected to drop $7,300 this weekend and may start to recover after R18 and creep slowly up to $170k+ by R21.

  • Stock tip: Pocket $71,100 if you sell him now.

Cam Pedersen – $236,100 UP$2,000 (UP$137,700) BE73. He’s the Kangas Cam that most of us wished we had instead of Cam Richardson! He has been an excellent mid-season find for the Roos, playing up forward for some good DT scores and covering in defence and pinch-hitting in the ruck when required. He is forecast to top out at a tick over $250k after R19 and he’s worth consideration as a ‘sell’ as H-Mac continues his comeback to the seniors.

  • Stock tip: Cash in now for a solid $137,700 gain.

Nick Duigan – $269,300 UP$3,100 (DOWN$176,800) BE79. As one of this season’s most popular rookie defenders, Duigan’s value has plateaued. His scoring has been varied, with a last five of 65, 67, 91, 78 and 43. A pretty awesome earner though, so if he’s played his mooing role for you and you’ve got the need for cashola, he’s ripe for the selling.

  • Stock tip: Gets you a pocket-burning $176,800 if sold now.

On The Up

Hayden Jolly – $137,200 UP$39,600 (UP$39,600) BE-43. There’s nothing like a steady increase in point scoring to get a rook’s value rocketing, and Jolly’s three of 87, 67 and 45 have his projected increase at $36,600 after his next game, topping out at $230k in R24.

  • Stock tip: For a quick flip, sell after R18 for over $200k and make $100k+.

Joel Wilkinson – $133,500 UP$35,900 (UP$35,900) BE-40. Another great short-term prospect is Wilkinson, whose scoring and value has followed the same pattern as team mate Hayden Jolly, carding 93, 52 and 40 in his three games with a gain in his next start projected at $34,700.

  • Stock tip: Also a quick flip to make you $100k+ if sold after R18.

Luke Parker – $140,300 UP$36,200 (UP$47,800) BE-31. Parker’s scoring has been pretty average, but a whopping 107 in his last game helps to put his value on an upward trend. Unless he manages to throw in 60-80 range scores, he’s not shaping up as a keeper and could make his coaches some quick cash.

  • Stock tip: Sell after R18 for around $185k and gain $85k+.

Bradley Helbig – $161,900 UP$14,800 (UP$69,400) BE24. With one of the catchier names amongst the rookies this season, Helbig hasn’t exactly lit it up in Dream Team. He’s had highs of 67 and 61, but 30-50 looks to be his usual spread. Granted, he hasn’t had a steady run of games, so hopefully he gets a couple more starts to peak in value.

  • Stock tip: Projected to top out for $175k-ish after two more games to make $80k+.

Patrick Karnezis – $150,000 UP$27,500 (UP$57,500) BE-8. Possibly the Lions’ most consistent rookie in his short AFL career, Pat Karnezis has shown a bit of potential with 62, 64, 54 and 45 in his first four games. He certainly puts in a bit of effort out there and looks to be a good foil for JB up forward. His price is forecast to peak after R23 at $200k.

  • Stock tip: Sell after R20 for $185 for an $85k gain.

Luke Dahlhaus – $182,000 UP$18,300 (UP$93,600) BE25. Dahlhaus has been a real firecracker in the Dogs’ forward pack and is just what they needed to inject some much needed energy after a lacklustre start to the season. He’s got some happy coaches out there too, rising sharply in value and forecast to top out at over $200k.

  • Stock tip: Makes you $110k+ if sold after R19.

Harley Bennell – $215,600 UP$8,300 (UP$59,100) BE29. After going AWOL, Harley’s come back pretty well with a 79 to get his forecast value peaking at around $245k in R20. If he keeps working hard and getting games, he’ll get his coaches a decent return on what was a premium-priced investment.

  • Stock tip: Tops out in R19-20 at $240k.

On The Slide

Gary Ablett Jr – $462,200 DOWN$25,500 (DOWN$32,200) BE165. The forecast is for GAJ’s value to drop to about $415k after R18, which is pretty good value considering his pre-23 scores of 175, 118, 135, 146 and 132! If you want to finish your mids off with a bang, then Gazza is your man, as long as he doesn’t pump out a couple of 150s to stall his slide…

  • Stock tip: Estimated to bottom out at $415k after R18.

Sam Fisher – $349,500 DOWN$15,000 (DOWN$4,300) BE146. The Fish has been super-consistent this year, but got shut down with a forward tag for 33 in his last game. Before that, he had 95, 120, 85, 105 and 88. Considering the pain that defenders have caused DT coaches this year, Fisher has been pretty reliable. He’s one name to stick on your shortlist of upgrade targets, or possibly even a swap for a Rawlings or Enright.

  • Stock tip: Estimated to bottom out at $325k after R18.

Drew Petrie – $318,600 DOWN$34,600 (UP$108,900) BE175. His mid-season purple patch ended with a couple of below-average scores of 24 and 51, which is dragging his value down quickly. We know what he is capable of, with 106, 94 and 100 before that dismal pair. As long as the Roos don’t set him up as the lone ranger up forward and bomb it to him like they did last weekend, he should pick up and get back on the DT horse. His FWD/RUC DPP is a bonus, but his DT finals bye may put you off.

  • Stock tip: Estimated to bottom out at $280k after R18.

Blue Chip Bargains

Heath Shaw – $325,500 DOWN$200 (DOWN$8,700) BE57. Heater’s value has bottomed out this week to a touch below his starting price, which makes him pretty good value as long as you are prepared to put up with the occasional 60. Yes, it’s a roller coaster, but when he’s good, he’s very, very good!

  • Stock tip: Projected increase is $11,000, so buy this week.

Jimmy Bartel – $287,000 DOWN$17,700 (DOWN$150,800) BE35. Wow… Did we ever think Jimmy’s value would plummet to under $300k? He’s come back from concussion with a 108 and 82, which isn’t too shabby. For a player with a 91 average, he makes the ‘bargain’ list purely on value. His current price makes him almost a straight swap with a ripe rookie as an M6, or even as a super-sub to cover for your other midfield guns during their byes.

  • Stock tip: Projected increase next week is $14,100… Get on now.

In Review

I think this will be a tough week with lots of thought around whether to trade or not. Conventional DT wisdom says we should hold our trades for finals, but this year’s byes are an anomaly that we have to bend some of the rules to cater for. Clem’s Trading for Finals article gives us even more to chew over – will an astute trade this week set us up for the run home? There are hard choices to be made, so get those thinking caps on! Again, make every trade count and good luck this weekend!

  • Great Article Shame I am running too low on trades to get Bartel in

    • Cheers Tee Tee! Loading up for two of the biggest no brainer trades of the season this weekend… Iles for Bartel and Lower for Shaw. Net cost is about $65K and should buy an extra 35-50pts a week. Hopefully enough to squeeze me past my finals rivals!

    • You do not want Bartel. I have him and I want to off load him to Abblet ASAP. Only 5 trades left. After the Collingwood game.

      I have 4 Geelong players

      • i will be getting barts as a 7th mid tomorrow.
        great cover for mitchell this week and for boyd in his bye!

        imagine having an emergency on him and having a late withdrwral or player being rested and having arts as back up! crazy not t do the trade IMO…

  • Jacobs to Ablett after round 18 that will help my midfield. Then my mids are complete

    • Good Trade. I should have waited on Ablett but he has been great since I bought him in in round 14 for Harris for $457,500. I even took the captaincy off him last week just to rotate it because there was no league games. Atleast I got Swannies 296 last week.

  • Good one TeeTee. I sold Darling and Duigan a while ago for a tidy profit. My next to go is Isaac Smith as his BE is now borderline. He will become Dal Santo or Pavlich.

  • Nice write up.
    Its really hard to read when you’re low on trades and fighting for survival. Personally I’m trying to ration out four trades to avoid donuts for the final 8 weeks leaving me with no room to pounce on a Heath Shaw at such great value.

    Out of interest, is anyone hanging out for the EPL fantasy comp to open? I use their preseason to make teams which enables me not to trade in DT at the close of each season. Its a good technique.

  • Where are you in the rankings TKOL?

    Forgot to mention Colin Sylvia as well.

    Adam Goodes is another at a steal price

    • 500ish.

      Ive coached terribly though this year, I really thought Id be ranked much worse. Thank fully I’m still a great coach and my worst is most peoples best.
      The most important point Ive learned is to learn from your mistakes and move forward which I intend to do next preseason away from all the hype and lime light.

    • Sylvia got a mention a couple of weeks back, so should hopefully still be on a few shortlists out there, but the savvy coaches will probably wait for him to produce a decent score before jumping on.

      Goodes is worth a look, no league-affecting byes – nice pick.

  • Great write up as always mate!

    • Out of curiosity can you tell me why you just kissed ass and failed to contribute to the topic at all?
      I’m sick of all the sucks out there. Get up off your knees and have a crack!

    • Appreciate the feedback mate, and happy to take positive/negative feedback, suggestions, recommendations, etc on board to improve the content.

      As for tkol’s issue… Dunno really.

  • A forwardline trade needs to happen for the Warne Dawgs this week. Had ‘one’ upgrade to do… but with Buddy on the bench, Didak still injured (could be on the chopping block) and the Smith/Callinan DPP not looking awesome, I have Darling, Prestia and Mzungu on the ground.

    WIth my cash, could go from Darling to Sylvia. No bench cover for this week. Or I can get rid of the dead weight that is Didak and get in Pav or Fyfe. Hmm.

    • You do love Sylvia! But Fyfe would be the no.1 pick for you though

    • Fyfe – the best pick of the forwards Warnie. DPP status helps too.

    • Yes you’d choose Fyfe over Sylvia but do you really want to get rid of Didiak? I don’t have him, nor do I want him. But the potential to score is there (if he plays) and you have made your bed.

      I’d say either go Darling to Sylvia or hold off.

      For the Record I have Darling on the field and am hoping he’ll push out a nice 70 odd this week.

  • Does anybody think Zac Smith will return to some decent form?

  • Tossing up weather to get on Heath Shaw this week or wait till the week after after the Hawthorn bye and get on Suckling
    Suggestions?
    Also does anyone know Sucklings projected change for the game he plays after the bye?

    • All the info you require about Suckling is on the 1st page of Fantasy Freako. How many trades do you have left?

    • 7 trades left

      • Ok, well i spose it depends on how ur team looks already but if you need an immediate defender then Heath Shaw is your man out of your 2 options, obviously suckling is on a bye this week, however it will take until after next weekend for his price to drop so potentially another 2 rounds you will be waiting for him at his bottom out price.

  • I’ve got Andrew Swallow and I’m considering going to Montagna. Monty’s ave. (apart from the vests) is 102. Swallow has the finals bye. It seems unlikely that Monty will get rested as the Saints are fighting to limp into the 8. Does anyone else like this move?

    • If you haven’t got the cash to go higher – Monty is not a bad choice. I was considering him but I have the cash to go to Dal Santo for higher points return.

      • Ouch Pettiger, I wouldn’t go Nicky Dal at all, he’s been going ok recently but handles a tag really poorly, I had him last season and went with the good times but got majorly f***ed with tag affected scores, overall he’s not trustworthy,

  • What are people’s thoughts on Nick Riewoldt?? No more byes, a favourable run home and has bottomed out at 291. Would Isaac Smith-Voldt be a stupid trade. Do people feel that Smith can hit more tons or will his 70 odd from the weekend be what we should expect from now on. He carries a relatively high b-e into the next game and has made a heap of cash. My forwards our set, however, like Warnie I have that dead weight Didak and if he isn’t named I will be taking a 0. So if I do this trade then Didak will be floating mids/fwd cover for the rest of the season and due to it only costing around 20k I will still have 80 thousand and 3 trades to do my last defence upgrade of lower-suckling/birchall/fisher in a few weeks time when they bottom out. What are people’s thoughts??

    • He’s been pretty good of late (bar the 29 against Geelong) but don’t know if I can split Smith and Didak? Both have a high ceiling, worth the same, have DPP and play in high scoring sides :S btw I have both too.

      • Had him all season, at the start of the season I thought he was a bargain but now he is definitely cheap as chips, he is one of the best forwards in the comp and Saints are starting to find some form so now is the perfect time to get him. Under 300k and BEP of 39, only an injury can make him lose money from here.

  • Need to trade out Brent Harvey ($321K) , due to his injury, have no cash, thinking of:

    1) Nick Riewoldt ($291K)
    –Make $30K in the trade down
    –Appears to have turned the corner (B/E 44) – 99 & 91 in last 2 weeks

    However: I’m not convinced that the Saints have turned around, nor whether the current game conditions suit the Riewoldt of old (he’s been ordinary for much of this year)

    OR

    2/ Ricky Petterd ($304K)
    –Make $16K in the trade down
    –Hot at the moment: (B/E 44) – 112 & 109 in last 2 weeks
    –Unique DPP

    However: is this just a flash in the pan? Can he consistently turn a score out?

    Thoughts? Other options?

    • I wouldn’t have the balls but I reckon go Pett. Could be a great move and you know you want to do it. I give you permission.

    • I’d go Voldt. Other options are Sylvia $304k or Higgins $320k. Depends on who you have already.

      • Thanks. Already have Sylvia. Flirting with the idea of Higgins but not sure I have the balls for it – the guy is made of tissue.

        • Indeed he is

          • I went jarred Brennan two wks ago for knights. He has made my happy with a 109 and 93. Low be and averaging 87. Very unique with only 3% owned. Hope you consider him too :)

    • Ricky’s an interesting one.

      He’s so good I bought him twice this year.

      Started with him and ditched him after he was omitted for about 4 or 5 straight matches, then he came back in the week after I sold him and scored a ton so I did the dodgey deed of buying him back in again. At least I didn’t sell him again. It was a dumb, emotional trade but they are the ones that give your team some character. Ricky is also providing some nice totals these days.

      I’m really glad I have him as in his current form he has to be one of the better 7th/8th mid/ 8th/9th
      forwards going around. His scoring problems in the first part of the season almost all centred on opportunity due to coaching. He was sub, he was left stranded in the pocket with no ball for entire quarters, he was benched, he was dropped. Liam Jurrah took a hanger every third week and seemingly that was enough to keep him in front of Ricky.

      Having said all that, I also have N Riewoldt and at the price you’d have to go with him. Proven track record of DT awesomeness and a good reason to think that his scores will continue to improve. Absolute bargain.

    • Harvey has been named

  • Getting in my 7th Defender this week or next week, cant decide between Birchel and Suckling. Anyone follow or seen the hawks well enough this year which will give an indication who will be the higher point scorer coming up for finals?? Or is the general consensus that both will probably average the 90 that they both have been scoring for the rest of the season?

  • Should I trade in N Voldt for Zaharakis this week or later?

    N Voldt
    B/E: 39
    Last 4: 93, 29, 99, 91
    Next 4: West Coast, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Freo
    Other: Very low b/e, good run home and no byes but would love to see him play one more game to check his form.

    Zaha
    B/E: 87
    Last 4: 123, 115, 81, 107
    Next 4: Adelaide, Carlton, Collingwood, Sydney
    Other: High b/e and gf bye but is in great form

    • His B/e is easily gettable in the next two weeks(zaha) but personally i would recommend putting money ontop of zahas current price and getting Pav/Rok/Cloke.

  • Hello fellow Dter’s…

    Wanted to run this past you guys for an opinion…

    RUCKS – Petrie out – Mumford or Leunberger? Or someone else?

    FORWARDS – Matera Out – Sylvia or Riewoldt? Sylvia has been very Avg recently but still averaging 90+… Riewoldt has been a good form recently but has been inconsistent all year…. Or someone else?

    Thanks in advance for your help & advice…

    • I am guessing you have plenty of trades… in which case i am envious.

      Fyfe / Pav – as fwds

      Petrie will bounce back, just came up against the best team in the comp last week.

      • Luke Legends

        Thanks for your reply !!

        7 Trades Left…. so not too many which is why the dilemma about trading or not…

        Just worried that if Petrie performs like the last 2 games in the Finals & he is my 2nd Ruck with Cox as my 1st & Lobbe as my 3rd – it could be a big Risk & a potential finals loss??

        Also worried about Petrie’s Final’s Bye

        I have Fyfe already in my Fwds & probably dont have the money to go Pav :-(

        • Team Name – Indian Connection

          Current Overall Rank – 4743

          3rd in the League

          (No chance of the Car… So League Win is what I am working towards)

          • I think you should go sylvia.

            Petries bye will hurt especially since its the first round of finals.

            If you’re in the top 4, dont trade in petrie.

          • I would take Sylvia also…. Hold on the ruck trade, you are 3rd!

  • Thinking about trading in chapman for darling. not worried about overall and going for broke to win my first final as i already have stevie j.
    Have stevie,franlin, goodes, silvia, n riewolt, fyfe and Petrie as cover for ruck and fwds
    Personaly i think chapman is ready to come home strong but does anyone think i should go safety option of pav or o keefe.
    I gues what i am saying is does any 1 think either of these 2 will outscore chapdog for the remainder, other then geelong bye?
    Cheers for any replys

  • A bit off topic, but really looking forward to the bargain picks next year (especially in defence). All will have plenty of risk associated with them, but the defenders this year have been unreliable anyway.

    Beau Waters- Will only play a handful of games for the season, if lucky. (Reminiscent of 2010)

    Jack Grimes- Coming off a broken foot, but has the ability to average 90+.

    Brian Lake- Good nows what has happened to him and where he will be next year but averaged just under a tick of 100 last year. Only averaging 60 odd for the year and has played less than half the year (nxt year should be priced around 250-300k mark.

    Sam Gilbert- Averaging around 70 for the year. Even if he can bump that up to 75-80 for the rest of the year, should be priced around 300-320k next year.

    Obviously there will be other bargains, in different positions next year (aka hayes), but the defenders next year look the juciest of them.

    • Jack Grimes. Never again.

      Beau Waters is good.

      Brian Lake – still iffy on him.

      Sam Gilberts role in the Saints side seems to have changed his DT ability for the worse.

    • Gaff for next year?

  • alright boys:
    6 trades left, $42,000 in the kitty

    am pretty happy with the way my team looks but should i burn a trade to get n. riewoldt in for krakouer? Thoughts much appreciated.

    • I would do it. Riewoldt is a proven gun and looks to be back.

      • cheers mate am leaning that way. just a bit wary of conserving trades as i have 4 cats and gibbs, heppell and hibberd all in my team

  • Is Petrie to Higgins a good move? Particulary with Hamish McIntosh on the cusp

    • higgins is a jet go for it

      • Hold of on that, Missy Higgins is about as hard as a wet fart. Peetree will bounce back. He has just played 2 of the best defencive teams in the comp.

        Regards

        The Unemployed

        • nah go ahead pull the trigger higgins is playing a defensive half back role and loving it
          he will average over a 100 from here to the end of the season

          Regards

          Wazzup

  • OMG just nuked cod mw2!!

  • im bit tight on cash at the moment, what can we expect Cox to drop to in the next week or two?

  • My Rucks are absolutely deplorable.

    Petrie, Vardy, Sandi, Bathie.

    Vardy is looking like rubbish atm.

    Need cash badly and I want Sandi out

    But I don’t really want to keep Vardy.

    Assistance is required, please.

    • If you have a spare $6k, trade Sandi to Cox. Play Cox/Petrie and keep Vardy for cover, unless you have trades to burn.

    • You could dump Vardy for Matthew Lobbe (170ishk) or even Lachlan Keeffe (93k)

  • Iam having a bit of a dilemma
    i want to get a last back to complete my back line
    My backs are
    Gibbs
    Birchall
    Deledio
    Enright
    Goddard
    Adcock
    Duffield

    iam going after the league win so i dont want to get any one with a finals bye
    i was thinking either Broughton or shaw
    out of the backman left who do you think will have the highest avergage from here to the rest of the season?
    with barlow coming back broughton might not get as much middle time and thus we will no longer see those huge scores from Greg.

    • Next week I would Lock and Load “Suckling” he is your man $368,500

      he plays Gold Coast in the finals, last game

      he can get big score eg 126 +

    • Lids?

    • surely if you can afford a premium as an 8th defender somewhere else needs upgrading first

      • i can, i have already have 8 premiums in the forward line and in 2 weeks ill have ablett in the midfield to make 7 premiums
        so all i need is a good back premium at any price to round out my team

    • Suckling and Shaw are givens in any good backline. Adcock will not be allowed to move up the ground and will bleed DT points as a consequence.

  • woops just realised u have him, ignore that lol

  • After this weekend Gold Coast have Collingwood, St Kilda then Geelong at Skilled. They will not play Gary this week end. Ahh then Brisbane R21, could be a chance to trade Abblet in, hopefully his hi BE gets higher.

  • Hey guys, I’m looking to trade out Zaharakis as he has the GF bye.
    I am looking at Fyfe, Goodes or N Voldt and I don’t know when to trade out Zaha.
    Here are the facts:

    Zaha
    Price: $350 000
    B/E: 87
    Form: 123, 115, 81, 107
    Pros: Is in great form
    Cons: Has a GF bye

    Fyfe
    Price: $366 100
    B/E: 88
    Form: 108, 91, 95, 104
    Pros: Best player out of the options, no byes
    Cons: expensive, use up all my money

    GOODES
    Price: $337 700
    B/E: 73
    Form: 91, 92, 81, 111
    Pros: Has a great second half of the year, multibye round- (no league games), fairly cheap (make profit)
    Cons: Inconsistent

    VOLDT
    Price: $291 100
    B/E: 39
    Form: 93, 29, 99, 91
    Pros: No byes, low B/E, dirt cheap, easy run home, proven gun
    Cons: a bit risky

    Who should I trade in and do you think it is understandable to wait a week to see each players’ form even though they each have very gettable B/E?

    • If you dont need money anywhere else then Fyfe is your man. Hard to make a decision without knowing your team/trades left etc

      • Cheers tingram, my team is as follows:

        Def: Gibbs, Lids, Suckling, Shaw, Goddard, Broughton, Adcock (Heppell, Poo, Jacobs)
        Mid: Gablett, Boyd, Swan, Pendles, Mitchell, Nicky Dal (Hibberd, Prestia, Gu)
        Ruck: Cox, Z Smith (Browne, Curnow)
        Fwd: Buddy, Pav, Chappy, ROK, Sylvia, Zaha, Higgins (I Smith, Lynch, Harper)

        I have 4 trades and only $18 k left. Hope this helps

        • I reckon hang onto your trades for the time being mate. DT can throw many curve balls down the track, and 4 may not be a lot to cover everything. Fyfe is a gun though……

          • Yeah fyfe is a gun and he’s not gonna stay cheap for long…
            and i have to trade out Zaha out anyway cos of his finals bye

  • Who thinks Heppell and Fisher can get within 2k of each other in two weeks time? Looking at a sneaky upgrade Heppell (299k b/e 42) to Fisher (349k b/e 157). Stranger things have happened right?

    • The Eagles tagged Scarlett last week and Cornes showed Fisher can be shut down…..it’s certainly not impossible.

  • The Eagles tagged Scarlett last week and Cornes showed Fisher can be shut down…..it’s certainly not impossible.

  • Any advice on last forward upgrade? Iv got 200k in the bank and 4 trades. Currently considering Howe >Cloke, Chappy, Okeffe and Stevie J. Obviously Chappy and Stevie J have the 2nd finals bye, but bringing them in this week could ensure a top spot finish and a likely rnd2 finals bye.
    Already have Fyfe, Pav, Goodes, Franklin, Sylvia, NVoltd, Smith, Mzungu, Dalhaus.

    • Chapman>O’Keefe>Stevie J>Cloke

      If youre confident youll win round1 of finals then go Chappy but otherwise go O’Keefe.
      He’s extremely consistent.
      Stevie J on the other hand is inconsistent and Cloke is overpriced atm

  • Thoughts on rawlings to Adcock, then Petrie to Cox

  • the teams

  • Ablett not named :o

  • Anyone looking at Montagna this week? Isaac Smith straight to Montagna. I have definitely done worse trades than that.

    • Already have him, but not sure if he’s 100% fit or in form. Maybe wait a week or so, BE 70 odd not going to rise that much.

  • So like, why should I sell pedersen again when he’s been awesome?

  • looking to upgrade

    either
    Lower, puopolo or b.jacobs
    to>>
    broughton or shaw.

    Suggestions?

    • b jacobs – shaw if you’re ok with yo yo scores but huge ceilings.

      Broughton for more consistency, but comes with a more expensive price tag

  • hey guys, what do you think about bringing bartel in for liberatore as a sub
    and also d.cox for z.smith?
