  • DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Heppel, Hanley, Ellis, Scotland (Clisby, Thurlow)

    MID: Swan, Ablett, Pendles, Barlow, Jelwood, Fyfe, Priddis, Titchell (Dwyer, Kmart)

    RUC: Cox, Naitanui (Gawn, Nicholls)

    FWD: Bartel, Martin, Roughead, JJK, Tippet, Staker (Buddy, Stevie J)

    Cash: $256,100


    Anyone got anything better?

    • Would you be tempted to get Riewoldt instead of Rocky considering Moloney and Black are back next week?

      • Yeah good point. Damn so hard to decide.
        Rocky has such a small BE, good fixture, and (almost) guarenteed massive score this week.
        But Reiwoldt looks to definitely be a top 6 forward, at his lowest price, BE 114 so maybe $5k cheaper next week.

        Also Cloke in the mix..

  • Who would be the better overall choice for trading out Blicavs, Witts or Hall. I want to save money so i can get pendles and rockliff next week but I don’t know who the overall better choice is

  • Help me out guys. Any suggestions on what to do.

    Def Goddard, heppell, Gibbs, Hanley, ibbotson, terlich (clisby, thurlow)
    Mids swan, ablett, pendlebury, Barlow, jack, Cornes, fyfe, t Mitchell (dalziell, hrovat)
    Rucks cox, kruezer (Nicholls, currie)
    Fads Stevie j, bartel, rockliff, Cloke, Reidwoldt, Kennedy (maccaffer, staker)
    Cash $79,900

    Not sure who I should be trading this week. Or if I’m overlooking trades.

  • Anyone else going to consider Sandilands for finals time? Price should drop well below 400k and should be getting back to form by then.

  • Roo or Roughead?
    Getting Roo will mean Mitchell, Montagna, Jelwood, Rocky, Martin one will be bench relegated when SJ return.
    Getting Roughead means I play all of the above and move Goldstein to the bench, or simply trade him out. I feel Goldy needs to go.

    If i get Roo then emergencies are clisby, one of the mentioned players, calves and staker are the 4 e’s

    Roughead- clisby, hrovat, goldy, staker are the e’s

  • trades:
    cornes-> stanton
    terlich-> cloke (via staker)

    DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Heppel, Hanley, Ibbo, Goodes (Staker, Clisby,)

    MID: Swan, Ablett, Pendles, Barlow, Jack, Stanton, Priddis, Titchell (Hutchings, Hunter)

    FWD: Bartel, Martin, Rockliff, JJK, Cloke, Riewoldt (Stokes, Stevie J)

    Cash: $19,800

    i think i have the top 8 forwards!
    having titchell as M8, and Goodes as D6 is alright for now, none have failed.

    thoughts on trades?

  • Am seriously stuck with which trade to do here so any help would be amazing. So just for some background info, terlich is my D6, Dangerfield is on my field and Buddy is F6

    SO either I go
    Terlich–>Grimes and Dangerfield—>Roughie (via DPP) leaving 100k in bank and no rookies on field
    Dangerfield—>J.Selwood (low breakeven) Buddy–>T.Cloke but leave terlich

    Any thoughts? Thanks heaps!

  • I’m having troubles with my M8. Who should I play:

    Crouch or Titchell?

  • My team:

    DEF:Goddard,Heppell,Gibbs,Hanley,Hibberd,Ibboston (Pittard,Clisby).
    MID:Swan,Ablett,Pendles,Barlow,Priddis,Cotchin,Titchell,Hrovat (Watson,Mckenzie)
    RUCK:Goldie,Kreuzer (Nicholls,Moller)
    FWD:JJK,Martin,Cox,Rockliff,Bartel,Johnson (Dwyer,Staker).

    CASH: $69,500


    • Bit tight on cash there. Pittard, Dwyer and Watson would be to targets to trade. Not many downgrade playing targets available, so I would look to downgrade Pittard to someone like Blayne Wilson, and upgrade Watson to Jelwood/Stanton.

  • Goddard, Heppell, Hanley, Gibbs, Grimes, Goodes (Ellis, Clisby)

    Swan, Ablett, Barlow, Pendles, Priddis, Deledio, JPK, Titchell (Dalziell, K-Mart)

    Bartel, Stokes, Cox, JJK, Rockliff, Staker (Franklin, Stevie J)

    96k bank.

    Thurlow > Grimes already done

    Deledio > Jelwood
    Deledio > Stanton
    Blicavs > 89k Ruck
    Franklin > Cloke
    Your ideas > Your idea

    Anyone have any input?

  • DEF: Goddard,Heppell,Gibbs,Enright,Ibbo,Goodes(TERLICH,Wilson)

    RUCK: Cox,Berger(Nicholls,Blicavs)
    FWD: Bartel,SJ,Dusty,Riewoldt,JJK,Dwyer(Staker,Neade)

    Danger > Stanton as he has 11 100+ scores out of 14 this year.
    Terlich and Staker DPP, and get Cloke or Rockliff for Terlich?


  • Goddard, Heppell, Terlich, Ibbo, Goodes, Ellis (Clisby, Thurlow)

    Swan, Pendles, Ablett, O’Keefe, K. Jack, Jelwood, Priddis, Prestia (Titch, Crouch)

    Cox, Nicholls (Blicavs, Daw)

    Bartel, Martin, Roughead, Stokes, Rockliff, JJK (Stevie J, Daniher)

    Got $67.9K in the bank

    Already did:
    Lids –> Pendles
    Franklin –> O’Keefe (through Rocky’s DPP)

    Looking at next week to downgrade my R3 or R4 then upgrading one of my backs to Malceski.


    • Looking to trade out one of Macaffer (BE 74), Terlich (BE 113) or KJack (BE 132).

      Ideally I would give them all another week but I have the Danger/Stevie J combo and need to upgrade for points.

      Thoughts lads?

      Are there any must-haves this week? Grimes/Jelwood/Pendles/Cotch?

    • Oops, wrong reply window.

      Your trades look good to me, but I’d be worrying about Ellis over Lids.

      • seriously though. Lids over ellis. Mainly because they’re playing freo and lids is probably gonna get the crowley tag so off with him

  • Rocky or Reiwoldt??

    And, for my D8 (don’t need him to play) should I get Wilson (cash cow) or Oxley (20k cheaper). Weighing up between the potential of Wilson to get me cash or cheaper Oxley because Wilson might not play enough games to make up for it.

    Thoughts for trades before lockout! Cheers

    • Maybe switch Cox and Blicavs, downgrade Blicavs to cheapest fwd, upgrade someone like Dalziell? You haven’t got much cash to play with, and i’m not seeing any obvious downgrades.

  • Def: Goddard, heppell, gibbs, terlich, b.goodes, staker (clisby, pittard)

    Mid: Swan, ablett, pendles, barlow, ROK, stanton, jelwood, M.Hitchings (titchell, rampe)

    Fwd: Bartel, martin, cloke, kennedy, macaffer, buddy (s.johnson, richards)
    Cash: $150,500
    Who should i play titchell or M.Hutchings for my M8
    Should i get rockliff in and a premium defender such as malceski in?

    Cash isn’t a worry planning to downgrade blicavs down to a rookie for cash next week

    Thoughts? Also about any other trades

  • DEF:Goddard, Gibbs, Heppell, Enright, Ibbotson, Hanley (Laird, Clisby)
    MID:Swan, Ablett, Pendlebury, Stanton, Barlow, Jack, Priddis, Cotchin (Mitchell, McKenzie)

    FWD:Johnson, Bartel, Rockliff, Naitanui, Kennedy, Franklin (Macaffer, Staker)

    135k remaining Thoughts on trades or improvment this week??? Greatly appreciated
    I was thinking Laird to Grimes as he is cheap and provides good cover and then Macaffer to Martin and next week I will do something with Nic Nat/Franklin

  • First year ever playing Dream Team. I’m not exactly a die hard AFL fan. Doing this for the social fun with a group of friends who are all into it, so I mainly just stick to the statistics, Footywire and DT Talk.

    Hopefully not a total noob at this. Here it goes.

    DEF: Goddard, Heppell, Hanley, Gibbs, McKenzie, Clisby (Waters, Thurlow)
    MID: Swan, Pendlebury, Ablett, O’Keefe, S Thompson, Fyfe, J Thomas, T Mitchell (B Kennedy, J Saunders)
    RUC: Nicholls, Rowe (McKernan, Currie)
    FWD: Bartel, Roughead, Rockliff, Walker, Macaffer, Staker (Johnson, Hitchcock)

    As you can see, I’ve been screwed numerous times over this year due to injuries/suspensions (as have we all). So, this is my plan going into the final weeks.

    around $35,000 left at the moment

    This round:
    Zorko > Rockliff
    Watson > T Mitchell

    Next round:
    Waters >
    McKernan >

    Macaffer >
    Rowe >


    • Sorry Watson was in MID and Zorko in FWD. The list I wrote already has the trades in.

  • def: Goddard, Heppell, Hanley, Gibbs, Terlich, Ellis
    def res: Clisby(e), Saunders
    Mid: Swan, Pendelbury, Ablett, Barlow, Swallow, Priddis, Fyfe, T.Mitchell

    Thinking franklin – N.Riewoldt or rockliff

    not sure on 2nd trade blicavs-mayes via rowe apparently stokes in doubt

  • Field Hrovat against Hawks or Dalziell against Swans??
