  • Can someone let me know what the projected scores for these players are for this round – Boyd, Montagna, Griffen & Swallow. Would really appreciate it! Cheers.

  • Just wanting to get people thoughts. Gonna trade Boyd in for either crouch or hrovat. Next week the other will be traded to hunter. Trying to decide what to do. Crouch has a BE of -20 and hrovat’s is 23. If I trade crouch now I’m left with 113k but if I go hrovat I’m left about 36k. I’ll be wanting $$$ from the hunter trade next week to upgrade else where. Crouch’s price should go up more this week given his BE. Sould I take the gamble of nothing going wrong and try to get the extra $$$ from crouch next week or stick with the 113k ill have left from trading crouch this week?

  • Grigg or ROK?

    • Both in great form and both awesome fixtures coming up. I’d go ROK, finished last year really strong and he’s a tackling machine like scooter also a tagger who will never get tagged.

  • Scotland or Vlastuin on the field?

    • I would lean towards vlastuin, playing Sydney at the SCG on a wet night there won’t be much uncontested footy or possessions tonight which is Scotland’s domain so vlastuin from those two. Either option isn’t great though.

  • DEF: Goddard, Heppell, Gibbs, Ellis, Vlastuin, Terlich (Staker, Thurlow)
    MID: Ablett, Swan, Pendlebury, Watson, Dangerfield, Boyd, T.Mitchell, B.Goodes (Barlow, Mayes)
    RUC: Cox, Z.Clarke (Nicholls, Blicavs)
    FWD: D.Martin, Bartel, JJ.Kennedy, Cloke, Rockliff, Franklin (Macaffer, S.Johnson)
    CASH LEFT: $17,700

    Bench Barlow and Johnson
    Blicavs > cheap ruck
    gives me $218,000 in the bank for
    B.Goodes > J.Selwood/Ball


  • B.Goodes & Stevie J to Gibbs & ROK ($500 left over) or Barlow & Stevie J to Gibbs & Boyd ($170.4k left over)? Doing my head in. Have a must win game against my work mate and really need to maximise points however must think of the future and maybe trading Barlow is a waste if he’ll be back next week. However may not need to worry too much about getting Barlow back in if Boyd carries on with his recent form.

  • Def: Goddard Heppell Hanley Ibbotson Ellis Terlich (B.Goodes Staker)
    Mid: Swan Pendles Watson Barlow Jack S.Johnson Fyfe T.Mitchell (K.Martin Vlastuin)
    Ruck: Cox Kreuzer (Blicavs Nicholls)
    Fwd: Bartel Rockliff Martin Franklin JJK Zorko (Macaffer Kerridge)

    135k bank

    Looking at trading Stevie J and Vlastuin this week but would like to keep improving my team rather than simply sideways trading
    Gibbs is a must have this week and will sit in my mids until I can swing him back.
    Unsure on the other (am 20k short of Ablett). Considering Boyd but that would push T.Mitchell to M9


  • You’ll need Gibbs & Boyd at some stage.
    Now is as good as ever.

  • Just read the ‘Trigger Happy’ article and now i’m not sure who to lock in, Heath Shaw or Trent Mckenzie?

  • DEF: Goddard, Heppell, Duffield, Birchell, Vlastuin, J.Webster (L.Stevenson, J.Thurlow)

    MIDS: G.Ablett, D.Swan, M.Barlow, T.Cotchin, N.Fyfe, P.Dangerfield, K.Jack, T.Mitchell (N.Kommer, N.Hrovat)

    RUCKS: D.Cox, M.Blicavs (T.Nicholls, D.Currie)

    FWDS: J.Kennedy, S.Johnson, J.Bartel, Martin, L.Franklin, Rockliff, (Staker, S.Rowe)

    $388,000 in the bank

    Birchell to Gibbs

    Thoughts on what i could do for my second trade? Not sure what to do with Vlastuin :/ do i get rid of him or downgrade or upgrade somewhere else…

    Thoughts on my team overall?? trade thoughts??

    • You got plenty of cash… I’m not too sure whether you even need to get Clisby this week.

      Birchall > Gibbs is solid.
      Vlastuin/Webster > premo Def. Ibbotson, Enright, Malceski, Hartlett, have been solid lately.

      Duffield is out, but bench him.

  • DEF: Goddard, Hepp, Hibberd, Ellis, Goodes, Vlastuin (Thurlow, Colq)
    MID: Swan, Ablett, Montagna, Jack, S.Mitchell, Boyd, Pendles, Titchell (Barlow, Lonergan)
    RUCKS: Cox, Nicholls (Blicavs, Daw)
    FWD: Franklin, Bartel, Stokes, Rocky, Maccaffer, Staker (S.Johnson, Rowe)

    Cash left $2.5k.

    I’m absolutely clueless on what to do this week. I know Clisby has to be in there somewhere and I want to get Gibbs. Is it worth missing out on the other rookies to get Gibbs?

    Any thoughts on future trades as well? (next round or two)

    Thanks in advance guys!!

    • Thurlow > Clisby
      Boyd > ?? really whoever you want. Presuming Barlow plays, you can upgrade anywhere really. I’d say you should upgrade Def or Fwd- your mids are your strongest. Maybe Boyd > Ibbotson, drop Goodes or Vlastuin to mids bench and you’ll have DPP and an upgrade in points.
