    On the Chopping Block: Stevie J, Caddy, Hickey
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: After Friday night’s game I thought it would be a huge scoring week. Come along Saturday night and it turned shit whole. This weeks trades were Pavlich to Fasolo and Cotchin to Stevie J. Of course Cotchin knocks out a comfortable 113 and Stevie J has the most dismal week on record. Not ONE of my premium midfielders scored over 100 infact not a single premium priced player scored 100 for my team this week. I am so pissed off as I should have just either not done my second trade at all or trade in Ablett insteaf of Stevie J with his stupid price that was always going to come down at some stage!

    League Results: Five W’s
    Studs: Macrae, Mumford, Chapman, Gazza
    Duds: T.Mitchell :| and Caddy also pretty poor
    On the Chopping Block: Not sure just yet, may kneejerk in forward line with under performing players (mitchell/caddy or maybe pav), but no doubt other issues will pop up during the week!
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Pretty happy with my start, ranked at 64 so not to shabby. Now to keep it up!

  • Ryan Griffen and Scott Selwood in a few weeks anyone… Gonna be such bargains.

  • Team Name: Bad Juju
    Round 3 Scores: 1955
    League Results: L L L L
    Studs: Ablett, Suckling, Mackie, Jelwood, Dunstan (on the bench!)
    Duds: McVeigh, Tyson, Polec, Dusty, Danger, Dahlhaus, Hickey, Titchell, Beams, Wingard
    On the Chopping Block: Don’t even know where to start..
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Absolute shit sandwich of a week.. Captained Pendlebury, Dunston on bench (Polec on field), many sub-par scores. Only THREE players hit the ton. Titchell being subbed and Hickey 36 were the biggest kicks in the stomach.

    • Also, it’s just my luck to have a shit week as soon as head-to-heads start.. Absolutely smashed it the first two weeks to be sitting 286th. Now just outside 2000, with losses in all leagues. FMDT.

  • Team Name: Captain Gollo
    Round 3 Scores: 2162
    League Results: Easy win
    Studs: Gablett (C), Macrae, Dunstan, L McDonald (on the field!), Suckling, Jaensch, Swallow, Jelwood, Cotchin
    Duds: Hickey, Caddy, Zorko, Tyson, Wingard, Dusty
    On the Chopping Block: Caddy, possibly Hickey?!
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Ranked 2784, pretty good score this week with so many players failing to fire. Definitely looking to pick up Matt Crouch, however not sure whether to go this week or next. Not looking to downgrade any premiums or Macrae, it’s possible that I could trade Ellis or Polec who IMO will probably average less than Crouch. Would like people’s opinions on this.

    • Wait a week for crouch and get another rise out of Polec and trade hm out.

      • Exactly what I was thinking. Polec has a lower breakeven and hopefully, if he can get an 80+ score his price will rise more than Crouch’s.

      • +1

  • Team Name: Rhonda for Ketut
    Round 3 Scores: 2030
    League Results: W
    Studs: Suckling, Bugg, Jelwood, Ablett, Dunstan, Mumford
    Duds: LaCras(injury), Caddy, T.Mitchell, Dahlhaus, Tyson, McVeigh, K.Simpson
    On the Chopping Block: LaCras, T.Mitchell, Caddy, McVeigh, K.Simpson
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Pretty happy to be one of the few that hopped on the Mumford/Sandi train. Went with Pendles instead of Ablett for (C) which backfired but pretty happy with cracking 2k with the forward line I had this week.

    Trades I’m looking at this week:
    LaCras > Parker/Chapman
    T.Mitchell > Parker/Chapman

    Trying to avoid the kneejerk trades with McVeigh and K.Simpson and probably bigger fish to fry with LaCras and the way Mitchell has been playing.


    • IMO Caddy should be a higher priority to trade than Titchell. His price is quite low and he has a high breakeven, meaning that with the way he’s performed in the last two weeks his price will drop even further. Aside from R1 he’s looked nothing like he did in the preseason. I’d keep Titch just because he has the ability to bump up his average in the next few weeks.

  • Team Name: Ultimate Piggery

  • Team Name: Lord Heasy
    Round 3 Scores: 2152
    League Results: W/W/W/W
    Studs: Gablett, Suckling, Birchall, Cotchin, Jelwood, Chapman, S Jacobs and Ben Griffiths for saving me with an emergency 88 for Enright’s absence.
    Duds: Lecras, Caddy, Polec, Tyson and Geelong Staff for naming Enright when he was never going to play.
    On the Chopping Block: Lecras and no one else really but might look to make a trade for some ca$h

  • Daniel he would have beaten you – so according to your logic you must be in even worse leagues than Jangles ??

    Best start ever with avg 2108
    6324 total

  • Tossing up between Rockliff, swan and montagna. Your thoughts would be much appreciated

    • for Rockliff or Monty this is all depends on your bye structure.. for Swan, I would wait for another round or two til he bottoms out then get him in.

      Rockliff is no doubt the in-form player out of those three.. can’t go wrong with Monty either for consistency.

  • The iPhone app doesn’t tell you rank. Anyone else around 6300? Wanna know where I sit :)

    • 6300 is your total team points??… you’re right the app doesnt tell you your rankings.. I usually just go to the main site to get the ranking

  • Team Name: Fev’s Bingles
    Round 3 Scores: 1860
    Studs: My Defenders, Ablett, Cotchin, Macrae.
    Duds: Where do I start?
    On the Chopping Block: LeCras, Hickey.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: I seriously hate Fantasy right now!

  • Team Name:
    Round 3 Scores: 2037
    Studs: Chapman, Heppell, Mumford, Cotchin, Birchall, Suckling
    Duds: Everyone else especially zorko and dalhaus.
    On the Chopping Block: R. Shaw, was forced to play him after fantasy said Mcdonald wasn’t playing. Then McDonald plays and scores a hundred.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Moved down 800 ranks this week but still in the top 4000.

    • Gotta love FanHub and the great job they’re doing, pfft!

      • Yeah I know hey. Logged in just then and the ladders in the leagues are screwed up. I’m sitting 8th in on when I should be top. Last time I checked where you were on the ladder was based on wins and %

  • Hey guys. Sorry this might not be the right place but how do u find out your ranking for the round? The main page which says my overall ranking is the same as my round??

  • Round 3 Scores: 1880!
    League Results: W, got lucky and drew one of my leagues 4 dodgy blokes

    Studs: Swallow, Hibberd, Sucking, Birchall, Jaensch (Backline a strength? Blasphemy!), Jelwood, Crotchin… Shiels kinda.

    Duds: Fucking Everyone else. Lecras, Zorko, Caddy, Tyson, Polec, McEvoy (Left me with Currie), Martin, Wingard, Dahlhaus (Who the hell tags freaking Dahlhaus!?!?!)

    On the Chopping Block: LeCras: Obviously, thinking of going to Parker (who I traded for Zorko last week, I enter my submission for the worst trade of 2014 competition), maybe Chappy, but those hammies scare me and SURELY someone has to actually apply some defense on him, he’s slow and 97 years old, he shouldn’t be getting a dozen uncontested marks. Also Danger is on the cards, but I’ll hope he fails again and drops another 10-20k

    Caddy to Merrett: the clear easy pick, last chance to get on this guy and I can’t lose with a BE of -2, worst case scenario he gets injured for 16 and I make 5k and trade him to bottomed out Danger.

    McEvoy to Mummy/Cox: It’d eat all my spare cash, and McEvoy is competent enough, but if he misses I’ll have no choice.

    Birchall: I WILL NOT FORGET! McVeigh’s still got 10-30k of drop left in him, so I’ll probably sit here, Kolo is a possible value trade, but Caddy to Merrett has that one beaten.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Everything sucks. Parker to Zorko while leaving LeCras (Who I’d only planned on keeping for r2, but decided to roll on another 10k profit) is the worst thing I’ve ever done, and I’ve left my children alone in a bar when I went home.

    • woah what a vent! It’s a bit harsh to expect Tyson and Polec to give you premo-type scores.. getting 60s out of those two isnt a bad score for what we paid for at the start.. Tyson has set high standards but cant expect that every week esp playing in the wet!
      What you also need to remember is that most of us have all those players you’ve mentioned under ‘DUDs’. unless you pick some PODs.. if you’re on the same boat when it sinks, you will sink too!

      • Whoops, got on a roll with Polec, not actually overly grumpy with him. Tyson had built up an expectation of 75+ for me, and after being 44 at half time had me feeling good.

  • This AFL Fantasy site is starting to sh*t me. Before lockout I changed Ablett to Captain & Pendles to VC.

    After lockout when I went in next the site had changed it back to Pendles Capt. Ablett VC. I have a printout of my teams taken before lockout showing my changes but because of this stuff up I lost 198 points which lost me 3 victories. I would put a copy of my team on here but dont know how to , it wont let me copy & paste it on to here.

    As soon as I realized it i emailed the site through the help but got no response. I attempted to check the results at 5.00am today but we were still in lockdown.

    I thinking of giving up on Fantasy & just concentrate on DT &SC. It is very poor. Surely they could get someone who knows how to run the site properly. This has nothing to do with the DTTalk boys as you all do a great job.

    • You have to make sure after savings changes for the last time to log out then log back in and make sure its still the same i know its a pain and shouldn’t have to be done but it does. (No you DID NOT do this)
