  • Who’s the best fwd to trade Bartel to? Fwd line is Stevie J, Rockliff, Martin, Roughie, JJK, Bartel

    • Riewoldt. If you are concerned by his knee injury then Lewis is a good option.

  • DEF: Godd, Hepp, Gibbs, Hanley, H Shaw, Terlich (Clisby, Webster)
    MID: Swan, Ablett, Pendles, Barlow, J Steven, Cotchin, Hodge, Titchell (Hutchings Hrovat)
    RUC: Nicholls, McEvoy (Nicholls, Osburn)
    FWD: Stevie J, Cox, Martin, Nroo, JJK, Roughead (Walker, Lee)
    Was thinking:
    Hanley to Mckenzie
    McEvoy to Rockliff through Cox DPP

    Need a win this week to stay 8th!

    Thoughts and any advice would be greatly appreciated thanks!

    FWD: Martin, Cloke, rocky, Steve Johnson, JJK, Dwyer (Bartel, Staker)

    $$ 345,000

    What should my second trade be? I have a solid team so I don’t know what else to do? I don’t want to trade Bartel cause I already have Johnson.

  • Have Goodes in and want him out this week.
    Money isn’t a problem, who should I get?
    I have 3 in mind: Enright, Ibbotson or McKenzie

  • Hey guys, didn’t get any response on my last post.

    Def: Goddard, Heppell, Gibbs, Hanley, Ibboston, Grimes (Clisby, Frost)
    Mid: Ablett, Swan, Pendles, Barlow, Stanton, Jack, Priddis, Titch (Dalziell, Hrovat)
    RUC: Cox, Kruezer (Nicholls, Naismith)

    Cash: $180,000

    Thoughts for trades this week? Cheers

    • Nice team mate!

      Hanley to Mckenzie/Hibberd
      Bartel to a Kennedy/Nroo/premo fwd or if you want cash Daniher?

  • Please Help Fellas
    Def: Goddard Heppell Enright Ibbo Gibbs Hanley (Clisby,Wright)
    Mid: GAJ Swan Pendlebury Barlow Stanton Jelwood Priddis Titchell (Viney,McKenzie)
    Ruck: Cox Kruzer (Nicholls,Rowe)
    Fwd: Martin Stevie.J Rockcliff Cloke JJK Staker (Bartel,Daniher)

    Hanley to McKenzie (canon)
    Bank: 41500
    I don’t want to trade out bartel so then next week I can go Rowe to rookie ruck maybe Grundy and Titchell to Beams

    • Nice team, don’t think you need help, but strategy sounds good.

    • lucky i’m not playing you this week. the only unique players you’d have are jelwood and cloke, i have cornes and stokes.

  • Think i know what i’m going to do, but any other ideas welcome.
    Def: Goddard Heppel Gibbs Ibbotson Hanley Terlich (Pittard Clisby)
    Mid: Swan Ablett Pendles Barlow O’Keefe O’Meara Titchell Hutchings
    (Crouch Bartel)
    Ruc: Cox Nicholls (Goldy Simpson)
    Fwd: SJ NRoo Rocky Roughy JLewis JJK (Caff Staker)
    This week Rd18 Goldy>McBean Hanley>Malceski/McKenzie/Enright
    Next week Rd19 Bartel>Griffen rook mid>Beams
    Rd20 Clisby/Pittard>best Def. i don’t have M8 rook to Premo
    Tough to get rid of Bartel, but how do i get him back on field in fwds
    Goldy seems to be tiring, hopefully Cox improves without NicNat

    • Forgot to mention that all those trades will happen, cause nothing left field ever happens in DT, yeah right.

  • DEF:Goddard, Heppell, Gibbs, Enright, Ibbotson, Grimes (Hanley, Clisby)
    MID:Swan, Ablett, Pendlebury, Stanton, Barlow, Jack, Priddis, Cotchin (Mitchell, McKenzie)
    RUC:Cox, Kreuzer (Nicholls, Blicavs)
    FWD: Johnson, Bartel, Martin, Kennedy, Rockliff, Naitanui (Macaffer, Staker)

    40k remaining I was thinking of using some DPP and going Blicavs to Daniher and Macaffer to Riewoldt and throw Nic Nat on my ruck bench which leaves me with 90k. I will get rid of Hanley/Nic Nat next week. Thought on trades or improvements?

  • Cloke or N.riewoldt this week???

    -Cloke vs GWS
    -N.Riewoldt has bad history against his next 3

    however i think im still inclined to riewoldt…what do you guys think???

  • In which order would you guys rate these guys Enright Ibbotson Mckenzie and R.Henderson? I have top spot sewn up in my league so need one or maybe two of these guys.

    • Ibbo, McKenzie, Enright, Henderson. This is with finals fixtures in mind.

  • Has anyone else wondered why there is so little talk about S. Selwood and Boyd back in this week? Both guns.

    • I’m really looking at getting both by seasons end… keep it secret lad

  • do i:
    goodes – grimes / mackensie
    (putting hanley on bench, then when he comes back grimes will be D7)
    crouch – jwood / cornes


    hanley – mckenzie/enright or malceski
    crouch – jwood (premo mid)


    goodes – mckenzie/enright or malceski
    crouch – carter
    (this gives me a nice 358k to upgrade 2 next week to premos)

  • this is my midifield

    Swan, Ablett, Pendles, Barlow, Jack, Jelwood, Stanton, Priddis (M. Murphy, Mayes)

    Is it a good idea to bring murphy on field just for this week against GC? if so who drops out?

  • Who to bring in for Hanley out of Enright, Henderson or McKenzie? I have all other premo options. Torn equally between all 3… Pls help me!

    • I would go Enright, then McKenzie then Henderson.

      My reasoning is that Enright had his lowest score for the year last week & should bounce back against St Kilda. He is more consistent then Henderson, who has already made most of his cash, and more durable than a young player like McKenzie.

  • Who is the best forward to get in this week? At the moment I am getting in Nick Riewoldt, but concerned that he will score badly this week, and I need a league win.

    Fwd: Martin, Cloke, Johnson, Kennedy, Rockliff. I can get anyone in.

    • Stokes. Back him in to smash the Saints I reckon. Otherwise a sneaky look at Jordan Lewis, reckon he has the game to take it to the bombers.

  • Mid: D.Swan, S.Pendlebury, G.Ablett, K.Jack, J.Selwood, M.Priddis, T.Cotchin, T.Mitchell, N.Hrovat, B.Mckenzie

    Have 400K want to trade Hrovat to premium mid but dont know who

    Hope you guys can help!

    • Boyd/Griffen. Eagles basically have written the season off already. Waters gone under the knife, NicNat likely gone for the season too.

    • I’d get Scott Selwood. Had like 124, 134 and 102 in last 3 games before thumb injury and that shouldnt really effect his fitness. Should come straight back into some form

  • Dalziell > Cotchin or Dusty Martin??

    Was thinking Cotchin cos of hi higher ceiling, but might get overrun by Swans MF… any advice would be great!

    • I’d go dusty and try put him in your fwds. Martin is a top 6 fwd whereas cotchin isnt a top 8 mid if you know what I mean

  • Which backline defender would choose considering that you have got Heppel, Gibbs nad Goddard

  • Staker or Macaffer in starting 22?

  • My team:

    DEF: Goddard, Heppell, Ibbottson, Gibbs, Hanley, Duffeild (J.Webster, M.Clisby)

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

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

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

    $154,700 in the bank

    Trade Options:

    Hanley to McKenzie/Henderson

    To Keep or trade Bartel?? if i trade who would be good options to trade to?

    Unsure on my second trade, looking at upgrading Hrovat in the next week or 2 and than that means Tom Mitchell sits at M9.

    Thoughts on my team overall and also thoughts on my trades?? suggestions for second trade?
