    95k left I really need help Thoughts on trades and improvements?? I need to get rid of Neade, Burger, Evans, Goodes and Terlich soon Please Help

    • Go Burger to Staker via DDP with Nic Nat
      Upgrade Crouch to Ball…
      Don’t stress on Terlich – he has a low BE
      Evans can go to Hrovat in R12

  • DEF: goddard, heppell, birchall, hartlett, gibbs, vlastuin (terlich, thurlow)

    MID: ablett, swan, pendlebury, barlow, stanton, priddis, o’meara, wines (crouch, lonergan)

    RUCK: cox, berger (blicavs, daw)

    FWD: martin, bartel, rockliff, kennedy, dwyer, caffer (rowe, staker)

    Option 1: berger > johnson (via rowe dpp) and lonergan > hutchings/hrovat

    Option 2: berger > gorringe and rowe > johnson

    Option 3: berger > johnson (via rowe DPP) and dwyer > franklin

    any other suggestions for options more than welcome too.

    • id go option 3. cant be sure if hutchings will play this week as teams not final till after lockout and you should probably until after the r11 bye for hrovat. gorringe isnt a high scorer but buddy and stevie J is potentially 250+ points. and one of them could be captain

  • trades, mayes to franklin…rowe to staker,put rocky and berger on the bench…fwds now kennedy,franklin,johnston,lecras,macaffer,staker……my mighty mids swan pendle cotch ablett Watson S Mitchell priddis omeara…

  • is it worth trading thurlow out now? he will have a bit of trouble making it back into geelongs team now.

    • surely bigger issues to worry about? if not then might work out ok!

      • if i go daw->kreuzer and thurlow->staker i have cover in every position. but i still have neade and wines. should they go first?

        • if i do daw->kreuzer and neade->staker i have cover everywhere except defense

          • hmmmm tough choice. i dont think the cover for every position is that important this wk but playing players over the byes are definitely important and neade and wines should both play throughout all the byes while thurlow may not. however thrulow still has cash to be made while the other 2 dont. thurlow out for safety, neade out for hope thurlow will play and bit of extra cash.

  • who to start. wines or hrovat?

    • with wines you should get 60-70. hrovat could get anything, we havent seen enough of him yet. wines would probably be safer

    $230,800 in the bank

    Players OUT: Thurlow, Stevenson, Dixon (injured), Lonergan, Leuenberger (injured), Currie (injured), Rockliff (injured), Thomas (injured), Mayes and Rowe.

    Trades this week:

    Mayes OUT Staker IN

    Thomas OUT Stevie J IN

    I’ll have to cop the Thurlow donut, i’ll play Blicavs for Leuenberger, Blicavs should score well against the Suns.

    Thoughts on my team and trades for this week?? any thoughts on trades for the bye rounds?

  • need to trade in a rd 11 or 12 forward
    who out of bartel/franklin/goodes/stokes should i trade in?

    im leaning towards goodes or stokes for a POD but not sure which one

    • stokes looking really consistent. goodes has higher ceiling though. id probably say stokes however im really liking goodes atm!

  • Should I field Whitfield (vsing Carlton) or Kommer (vsing Swans)

    • Kommer, he is constantly improving each week! Ess V Syd will be a close game so its likely he will get touches

  • DEF Goddard, Heppell, Birchall, Goodes, Vlastuin, L. Brown (Thurlow, Stevenson)
    MID Ablett, Swan, Jack, Sidebottom, Watson, Cotchin, O’Meara, Moloney (Evans, Kommer)
    RUCK Goldstein, Luey (Rowe, Daw)
    FWD Bartel, Franklin, Roughead, J. Kennedy, Blair, Dwyer (Neade, B. Kennedy)

    100k spare

    Options; Trade Luey and swap Roughie into RUC freeing up FWD position for Stevie J

    I want to pick up either Staker or Hutchings because of their breakeven. Ideal would be to trade out Stevenson for Staker and bench Brown but picking up Stevie means I’m 6k short.

    Considering trading Dwyer or Moloney for Staker just because he is named this week and is a safer pick than Hutchings. Hutchings break even is fantastic though and if he plays would make 80k. Evans/Kommer to Hutchings is also an option.

    Not sure what to do. Thoughts would be appreciated!

    • Get in Staker, you need Job Security, especially for the byes.

    • Im in a very similar position (check out my post).
      Have u tried berger to kruz and moloney to SJ?? would be close! opens up dpp, then you could work some magic to get him into the fwd lines in the byes (eg downgrading neade to hrovat)

      • Good idea but don’t have the cash!

        • Then i like dwyer down to staker and SJ in for leuy. dwyer is injured not just rested. could play next week but it is still a risk also his hundred has only 1 more week left in his 3 week rotation meaning his breakeven will be back up towards his average.

          this could leave you to then downgrade daw (big BE no JS) to Gorringe (play through byes). then upgrade stevenson to a premo such as birch. Ur backline is a little thin (brown is more of a bench rookie)

  • DEF Goddard, Heppell, Gibbs, Scotland, Vlastuin, Terlich (Thurlow, Laird)
    MID Ablett, Swan, Pendles, Thompson, Fyfe, Priddis, O’Meara, M.Jones (Evans, B.Goodes)
    RUCK Cox, leuneberger (Blicavs, Daw)
    FWD Bartel, Franklin, Roughead, J. Kennedy, Rockliff, Martin (Dwyer, Macaffer)

    220k in the bank

    So many options, not sure which to do.
    Option 1 berger to kruezer, rocky to SJ
    option 2 berger to kruezer, dwyer to staker
    option 3 berger to kruezer, evans to any mid premo bar SJ (suggestions? maybe cotchin??)
    option 4 berger to kruezer, Jones to SJ
    option 5 berger to SJ, Dwyer to Staker

    So obviously im a fan of kruzer over z clarke and nic nat.
    option 1 feels a bit sideways
    option 2 gives a lot of money in the kitty to use through byes
    option 3 feels good as mid is probably my weakest area.
    option 4 SJ is important as captain this week but Jones is a bigger loss than evans (opens up DPP fwd Link)
    option 5 could be my favorite at the moment takes away ruc fwd link though!!

    Ranked 322 at the moment and would love to give overall a big crack.
    Opinions would be Great!!

    • Option 5 looks to be the best to me. Gotta get Stevie J in, and Staker will obviously start making some good $$. I would be a bit nervous this week with ur backline not having any coverage and Terlich on the field. I have had bruised ribs this footy season, it kept me out for 2, and nothing was broken, its a shit injury to have. I dont think the FWD/RUCK link is that vital to have this year, with 2 trades every week, it’s just a bonus if you do have it. my thoughts

      • cheers stegga, i have gone with option 5. Has left me with plenty of cash for the next couple of weeks. Laird is emergency, not confident of a good score but that will be fine.

  • Kreuzer or Clarke?

  • Roughead or Kreuzer for Luenberger?

  • My Team:
