    Vent/Brag/Whatever: I was hoping to double downgrade rookies this week, then double upgrade next week. As usual, injuries/suspensions/large BE’s have altered my plans. Such as life in DT.

    Round 5 trades: ???
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: 2 guns in this week that has bumped my projection over 2200 for the first time this season. Hoping to build on it. Disappointed couldn’t squeeze Gawn in this week for Blicavs, but with some luck he might get dropped for Vardy depending on how he went in the VFL over the weekend, because he’s not looking good to break even @ 44! Hannath or maybe Currie’s time is near?
    Btw im looking to bring in Wellingham in the coming weeks (based on form also) for O’Meara or Viney when they peak. Thoughts anyone? $424k seems ok for a player I think will avg.95+? Im an eagles fan, yet no other player in that price range has appealed to me yet?

    • Cant see wellingham averaging 95+ personally. It’s rare for me to ever find a player that appeals in that price range. Personally I’d take Moloney over Wellingham for 50k less and I would suggest similar averages.

      • Wellingham will play predominately in the Eagles Midfield I reckon, Luke Shuey and Masten Back to that High half forward role that Wellingham played at the Pies. With Sharrod working in and outside i think he can avg.95 easily, Got 28 touches in the WAFL on thursday and if my theory is correct it wont be any surprise he’s brought into teams as that 5th FWD. Altought Daisy might drop to around $400-420k mark pre-round 8.
        Moloney is gone out of my team for mayes last week!

    DT Duds: THE HOFF. Gibbs, M. Jones, B. Goodes, Dangerfield
    On the Chopping Block: Dangerfield, Bartel, Lids, JPK
    Round 5 trades: Dangerfield and Patton to Murphy & Paparone
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: i have yet to crack the 2.1k

  • Team Name: SD
    Round 5 Score: 2149

    DT Studs: GAJ, Rocky, The Pig, Jaeger, Willie Mayes, Hartlett
    DT Duds: Buddy, Gibbs, Dwyer
    On the Chopping Block: Blicavs, Dwyer, Wines
    Round 5 trades: Moloney to Mayes & Viney to Evans
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Mayes, great cash grab. Wines upgrade … anyone dare to pull the trigger this early?!

  • Team Name: SouthBeachTalents
    Round 5 Score: 2087
    League Results: W
    DT Studs: Dixon, Stevenson (saved me from Pittard’s 0), Ablett, O’meara, Mayes, Luenberger, Rockliff
    DT Duds: Gibbs, Goodes, Cotchin, Fyfe, Rowe, Robinson, Dwyer, Westhoff
    On the Chopping Block: Blicavs, Westhoff, Robinson
    Round 5 trades: Westhoff/Robinson – Johnson, Blicavs – Cox/Goldstein
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Having $729,600 sitting in the kitty and getting a W feels great. Big moves this week and will still have between $250k and $350 to make another big splash next week. Fyfe is only a dud because he was on 51 at half time. He went missing way too easily under a tag from Jackson.

  • Team Name: Savages
    Round 5 Score: 2165
    League Results: WLWWW
    DT Studs: Ablett, Swan, Rocky, Mayes
    DT Duds: Dangerfeild, Gibbs, Goodes, Whitfeild
    On the Chopping Block: Dangerfeild. Not good enuogh for prem mid, given him 3 chances now hes out
    Round 5 trades: Potential trades: Blicvas to Gawn & Dangerfeild to Watson
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: What worries me is the port 3 defence rookies and goodes omitted for a few rounds. perhaps early cash cow culling is on the cards. should be interesting to see how it plays out this week. Happy with the result none the less

  • Team Name: M.I.A.
    Round 5 Score: 2155 which picked me up nearly 4k spots to 6211
    League Results: Wins across the board
    DT Studs: Captain GAJ, Rockliff, Swan, Goddard, Heppell, Watson, O’meara, Mayes & Cox. Special mentions to Kennedy, Berger and Martin
    DT Duds:Buddy, Giibs, Goodes, Monfries, Danger. Bartel lucky to escape inclusion
    On the Chopping Block:Danger/Bartel
    Round 5 trades: Lets wait and see what the MRP says first.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: My FMDT moment of 2013 – trading out byrnes two weeks ago and crying while he averages 112.5 since.

  • Team Name: Victorious Secret
    Round 5 Score: 2059
    League Results: WWW
    DT Studs: GAJ, Swan, Rockliff, O’Meara, Mayes
    DT Duds: Hoff
    On the Chopping Block: Chaos in the backline, so considering Gibbs, Goodes, Pittard but also have Mullet, Libba & Hoff
    Round 5 trades: with Gibbs injured and Goodes most likely to be suspended…thinking to trade one of those and a port rookie, probably Pittard – bring in Hartlett and Laird. With Gibbs’s 54 to be in his system for a couple of weeks after his return – thinking to get him after his price drop, so trade Gibbs and Pittard for Hartlett and Laird, then later upgrade other Port rookie to Gibbs
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Backline malfunction, need to inject some new blood. Glad did not invest in Hodge after the cracker he had against the Pies!!!

  • Who to get rid of Cloke or Buddy?
