  • Who to play on field out of Gleeson and Robertson?

    Thinking Robertson due to vs Saints, but Gleeson has 96 & 82 as last two scores…

  • Who should i trade in Ebert, Macrae or Swan the first two have good bye structure s?

    • Swan. But if your worried about byes id say Ebert as he has more experience but Macrae is a good pick too and cheaper.

  • Def: Jaensch, Swallow, McVeigh, Birchall, Suckling, Griffiths(Langdon, Langford)
    Mid: Ablett, Pendles, Beams, Watson, Macrae, Dunstan, Tyson, Polec (Robertson, Ellis)
    Ruc: Jacobs, Sandilands (Currie, Derickx)
    Fwd: Nroo, Martin, Gunston, Merrett, Higgins, Fasolo (Lloyd, Rohan)
    First trade was Shiels to Robinso, leaving $585k.
    Question 1: Ellis or Tyson out? (whoever doesn’t go this week will go in the next 1 or 2)
    I feel I have 3 options:
    1. Tyson/Ellis to Swan (miss crouch) $408/308k
    2. Tyson/Ellis to Crouch (miss Swan till after byes) $655/555k
    3. Tyson/Ellis to Cutler via Langdon dpp(miss Swan and Crouch) $745k/645k
    Will make heaps of cash with those last 2 options for some big upgrades.
    I don’t want both Swan and Crouch rather than Robertson as this is bad for byes
    Thoughts appreciated :) cheers

  • Thoughts on going Tyson to Honeychurch and Jazkson Merrett to Brad Ebert. Helps with my bye plans and keeps a bit of money in the bank. however i will have to keep Ellis for another week and Honeychurch might not make the team.

  • Thoughts on Mackie > Mitchell (Or Simpson cause Rnd9) and Tyson > Ebert, leaves me with 217k still and my bye structure atm is 10/8/12. This is how my team looks;

    Def; Mitchell, McVeigh, Swallow, Birchall, Suckling, Langdon. ( Langford & Laidler )
    Mid; Ablett, Ebert, Beams, Watson, Cothin, Chapmen, Dunstan, Polec. ( Ellis & Cunningham )
    Fwd; NRoo, Martin, Zorko, Merret, Higgins, Fasolo. ( Lloyd & Ambrose )

    Before i do my trade i have 500k, so please have a look at them ( above ^^ ) and tell me what you think or some better trades maybe :) cheers !

  • Who is more chance to play this wk and who should i get out of hallahan or honeychurch?

  • I had Hanley on my bench from last week regarding his injury could limit his scoring potential I’m leaning towards option 1. Here are my trade options for this week. Opinions please

    1. Hanley- Mitchell
    Tyson- Griffen

    2. Cunningham- Honeychurch
    Tyson- Rockliff

    3. Cunningham- Honeychurch
    Tyson- Griffen

  • Zorko or Parker or gunston? Have been sold on Parker but gunston is looking a solid option

    • Why would you trade either of those out? Surely you can bring in rooks like Robertson, Honeychurch or Cutler instead?!

  • Hey Guys!
    im stuck on making trades this week

    My Team (currently)
    MID:Pendles,J Selwood,Watson,Gaff,Wines,Polec,Tyson,Shiels(Ellis,Kelly)

    Thoughts? I know Shiels isn’t playing but i can’t decide who else to trade out.

  • Here are my trade options for the week. opinions Please


  • Is it too late to get m.crouch?? Have I missed the boat.

    • I was wondering the same thing. I think if you need someone on the field then get Crouch. If not, get someone like Robertson.

  • 1. Ellis –> Kolodjashnij via Langdon
    2. Georgiou –> Tippett


    1. Ellis –> Honeychurch
    2. Tyson –> Griffen

    • 2nd option, however Griffen is risky.
      Could go Ellis to Robertson and Tyson to Cutler via Langdon dpp.

  • Should I get rid of Tyson or Ells this week? Also, is it too late to get Crouch?

    • Ellis. Get crouch if you need someone to play on the field. Otherwise get Robertson.

      • Thanks mate. I will get Robertson as it helps my byes aswell :)
        I will most likely trade Tyson in the next week anyway, so should I hold Ellis instead as he wont lose value and trade Tyson instead?

        • I’d trade the injured bloke out first but agree he might lose value so it wouldn’t be a bad idea.

  • Will rocky get tagged by curren? If so, will it make a difference?
    Thoughts would be appreciated, cheers!

  • Who should I get in Rocky or Swanny? Rocky suits my byes better cause I’ve got pendles and beamer already

    • Get rocky, he’s smashing it and one score over 105 doesn’t justify bringing in swan and screwing up your byes. Grab him after his bye he won’t go up that much

  • Should I bring in darling or dahlhaus for fantasy?

  • Tyson > Griffen or Roughead > Pav/Zorko/Chappy?

  • swan, griffen, montan, rocky?

  • my team this round, please rate out of 10.

    DEF: hibberd, birchal, suckling, enright, swallow, Griffiths (langford, Georgiou)
    MIDS: pendals, gaz, watson, beams, swan, cotchin, jwood, polec (ellis, langdon)
    RUCKS: sandi, hmac (currie, thurlow)
    FWDS: martin, merrett, parker, zorko, gunston, lloyd (ambrose, rohan)


  • Langdon or Griffiths on the field??

    • Griffiths

    • could use the loophole, if you have a non playing DEF… put langdon on the bench with the E on him, if you like his score put the non playing player on the field after the don v pies game so you get his score, if you dont like his score put griffiths on the field

      i would prob stick with griffiths tho.

  • Mitch Honeychurch or Nick Robertson for the injured X.Ellis (trade is for the bench)

  • DEF: McVeigh, Hooker, Swallow, Jaensch, Suckling, Langdon (Mackenzie, Langford)

    MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Beams, Watson, Macrae, Dunstan, Tyson, Polec (Ellis, Michie)

    RUCK: Sandilands, McIntosh (Mumford, Thurlow)

    FWD: Martin, Gunston, Merrett, Wright, Higgins, Fasolo (Lloyd, Rohan)

    Cash: $367,862

    Thinking Ellis –> N. Robertson and Higgins –> Dangerfield, any other thoughts?

    • Probably get Danger after his bye. I’d go Ellis > Robbo and Higgins > Riewoldt

      • Sorry, my reason is that you have too many R8 bye players. I’m missing out on Danger and Crouch this week because if I brought them in I would be staring down a 1700 or less in round 8

      • Look at Adelaide’s upcoming draw, Danger loves the weaker teams and this is where his going to go through the roof! get him in.

        • Yeah I’ve considered both of these, it’s hard with the upcoming byes but I still have another 2 weeks of trades to sort them out. At the moment I’m leaning towards Dangerfield just because of his upcoming matches.

  • Not sure how you have so much money in the kitty

    i would do those exact same trades, they look good

  • robertson or honeychurch?
    robertson seems guaranteed which is a plus but the cash from honeychurch will probably come in handy next round. Thoughts please?

    • I asked the traders on the live chat yesterday this exact same question and Calvin told me to get Robertson in. Both are good seeing they don’t have the round 8 bye, Honeychurch is a bit of a trial and error. Robertson is guaranteed like you said and doesn’t have the chance of wearing the vest.

      • Yeah I already had him in but just in case someone had a good reason for someone else I thought I’d ask. Thanks.

  • #langdon avoids vest pheww

    • Yeh i was holding off, not sure whether to select him or Joel Tippet as my emergency (makes my matters worse)

  • Any Dogs fans out there that can tell me what the Honeychurch situation is? I was convinced he would play this week but now it isn’t looking so likely and that second ruck-man named too

  • should i get danger for fixture but struggle for byes, or dahlhaus for being safe in byes?

    rest of fwd line is riewoldt, martin, gunston, zorko, merret

    • you only have one other r8 bye player there so I’d go Danger, but it depends what the rest of your team is looking like in terms of byes

      • ive got swallow jaensch, ablett, beames, cotchin, langdon, jacobs, griffiths, dusty and lloyd

        my byes are 11/8/11 with dahlhaus and 12/7/11 with danger

    Trades Left: 27

    Any thoughts on my real dreamteam? Im looking to bring in Sam Lloyd for either JKH, G.Rohan or Ambrose. Thoughts on this and any other trade I could make?

    • JKH is still getting games, Ambrose will probably come back in when ready, Rohan out of form, Lloyd in JKH on bench. Then you could do Tyson to Premo.

  • RE: Partial Lockout/s today….can someone please answer or confirm the following:

    I just upgraded Tyson to Swan (locked and loaded) and will most likely be downgrading Ellis to Robertson from the Bris Lions… Robertson is in the second game today and I was wondering if I get the chance to see the Sunday FINAL teams released for all other games because there is a chance I will change Robertson to Honeychurch is he is selected??

    The rolling lockout today is confusing me a bit…namely the ability to do my second trade and the timing of the lockout…

    Any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks in advance..

  • Anyone doing the VC loophole? thinking of currie as captain, presuming no late call up, beams VC

  • Further to my previous post, quote from Calvin’s captains …..”There is a partial lockout in AFL Fantasy Classic this round. It will start at 2:40pm AEST for Collingwood v Essendon, continue through St Kilda v Brisbane Lions game (those players locked at 5:45pm AEST) before full lockout at 8:40pm AEST for the Fremantle v North Melbourne game where all players will be locked:…

    Is he saying that at 5.45pm the St.K v Bris players are locked in (yet Partial lockout continues on until later that evening before the 3rd game???

    Would this mean that we WILL NOT have opportunity to see FINAL Sunday squads prior to having to select Bris or St Kilda players???

    Appears a matter of very poor timing (bloody different time zones don’t help in this issue)…

  • Sweet, looks like we get that window of opportunity then…

    Thanks mate and good Dreamteaming to you this w/end!

    GO BOMBERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
