  • 12/1333 with jaensch, swallow, Burgoyne, ablett, hallahan, sandilands, Jacobs, gunston, bruest and danger.
    Looking at 2200 if all players play well. What do you guys think I should get? Cheers

  • How much do u think polec will drop and Goddard will rise and what are good downgrade options for Langford or Langdon and which one to trade first
    Thoughts would be appreciated! I really need help!

    • Roughly $10-15k each

      Brodie Martin looks good

      • Thanks. Anyone one cheaper got dpp so can be a midfielder. Also which one do I trade first

        • Look at Zac obrien

        • Hard to find a better/cheaper def right now. Might have to wait until other rookies get a game.
          Personally I have both and am holding for a couple of weeks to fix other areas first.

          I’ll probably look to downgrade Langford and upgrade Langdon as his price isn’t quite maxed out yet.

          Hope that helps.

          • It does thanks alot

          • You are so full of shit Crisis, to the point where it is starting to stink.

          • who is this Gambler?!? what right do you have to criticise? my ranking inside top 100 backs up that i know what i’m talking about

  • Has anyone heard if Mackie is expected to miss games with that kidney knock?

  • 1428 from 12 and captain. Jaensch,swallow,suckling,gunston,ablett,jacobs,
    sandilands,dalhaus,dangerfield and tex to come. Looking at a big score

  • A brief message to anyone who rage-traded Dayne Zastro two weeks ago:
    SUCK IT!

    • Actually it allowed to me downgrade and get in Tex and freed up cash for Jelwood. Quite happy I traded him out at that price plus he will still drop a little more after having a BE of 140.

      Good on those for keeping him….

  • is it worth trading polec to goddard this week and then hallahan to rocky in a few weeks time or is it better to go poled to rocky this week and in a few weeks find someone to trade hallahan to?

    • Rocky should be tagged the next few weeks so wait until after the dockers game to get him. Hopefully a bad game will bring down his price for you to snag him

  • Just want to apologise – I brought Jacobs in this week which of course means he will spud it up

    • Unlucky mate – not sure if you’re watching the game but he got a knock in the 1st quarter and has been lumbering up forward since. Couldn’t have predicted that! He’s been subbed out now, but I don’t think the injury is serious.

      • Cheers. No I’m not. That would explain why he’s score isn’t moving! Thankfully I have swallow, ablett, walker, danger and jaensch absolutely killing it

  • If I have two emergencies and they both score which one replaces my DNP?

  • 1839/17. Looking for a huge score.

  • goddard or barlow

    • barlow. prices will be similar after this round. Barlow has a great run home, is consistent and doesn’t have potential infraction notices hanging over his team.

      • Neither does Goddard, seeing as he was playing for the Saints when the magic potion was being passed around.

        • Just re-read your post Brendan – apologies – I took it the wrong way.

          • no worries man, i know goddard is clean but i worry that if the whole of essendon gets knocked out he will be the 1 player targeted by opposition teams and his scoring will suffer.

    • Barlow has the higher ceiling

  • In RDT I’m on 2172 with Suckling, Hallahan in play and Cox, Harvey still to play

  • guys do i upgrade cotchin to a pendlebury or langdon to a jaensch? and why

    • cotch to pendles. Langdon still has a lowish breakeven, while cotch is inconsistent as all hell and pendles is a jet.

    • Sorry posted below but forgot to reply.

      Tougher fixtures with Sydney and freo coming up so Cotchin to Pendles for me.

      Langdon is scoring ok and maxwell out at least a game or 2 so I wouldn’t trade him just yet

    • Cotchin to Pendles is a sideways trade, sure Pendles averages 10 more, but I believe your first priority should be upgrading rookies. Also, if Cotchin gets back in to form he could potentially lift his average 5-10. Someone who averages 100 no matter what their form should only be upgraded as a luxury trade I believe.

      Jaensch averages about 15 more than Langdon. So you get more points, and an extra premo

    • Depends on rest of your team, but on face value Cotch to Pendles is the go. I’d back Langdon to get 85 this week, and Pendles 115.

  • 2366 all done first round of the year without any carnage!

  • Tougher fixtures with Sydney and freo coming up so Cotchin to Pendles for me.

    Langdon is scoring ok and maxwell out at least a game or 2 so I wouldn’t trade him just yet

  • I’m going to sideways trade Scott Selwood for Crowley

    • Your kidding right?

      • Me to and then as my second trade for a cash grab I’m going Rockliff to Dawson via dpp how good is that trading.

    • I was kidding as at QT Selwood was on 16 points. But at HT he is still on 16 points and I’m now deadly serious

  • Thoughts on Cotchin to Barlow . Have no other trades to do

  • 344K in bank, thinkin about trades this week.

    Polec -> Barlow

    S. Lloyd -> Franklin, Bird or Tex

  • Who would you guys pick out of Rocky and Barlow? Obviously Rocky is on fire at the moment but he’s got Picken and Crowley in his next 3 games whereas Freo have a great run coming up and Barlow is a fair bit cheaper…

    • at this point in the season i think you go the value pick of barlow. there is still plenty of time for rocky to have 1 or 2 bad games and fall in price 50k. keep the cash for upgrades elsewhere

      • Rocky is averaging 127, how many points are you willing to lose to save 50k?

        • the thinking is that you can make it up elsewhere, barlow will be 110+ with a huge ceiling and consistency and the money saved could help turn another rookie into a premo which could be worth 15-20 points at least

          • I agree, Brendan. I really want Rocky, but he’s just too expensive right now. I can upgrade 2 other players for the price of getting to him. He’ll have a poor game at some point in the next few weeks, drop $50k, at which point I’ll grab him.

          • Thanks for the input guys, much appreciated. I’ll probably go Barlow since the extra cash should allow me to upgrade griffiths as well as polec.

  • Who do i get in out of Pendlebury, Kennedy, Barlow? and why

  • Guys, what do you think of:
    Ryan Griffen to Barlow
    NRoo to Zorko or Chappy

    I still have Langdon and Langford (1 on field, 1 on bench), but I reckon I’m OK to keep Langdon on ground for another week or two, and then turn him into Bartel (who is the only premo def I’m missing).

    • with the trades you’re suggesting your team must be nearly complete? would you mind posting it so i/others can get a feel for any other potential sideways trades?

      • Sure, Brendan. $208,625 in bank.
        Def: McVeigh, Simpson, Hibbo, Suckling, Swallow, Langdon. Bench: Langford, Aylett
        Mid: GAJ, Pendles, Beams, Watson, Selwood, Swan, Tyson, Griffen. Bench: Shenton, J Lloyd
        Ruc: Jacobs, Sandi. Bench: Derickx, Currie.
        Fwd: Parker, Danger, Martin, Dahlhaus, Tex Walker, NRoo. Bench: Billings, S Frost

        • Nice team. griffin to barlow would be the clear trade. I have nroo and will be holding, but if you must drop i would go zorko for the cash grab. If it were my team I’d go barlow and then look to make a rookie downgrade to keep the cashflow going

  • how do these trades sound;

    or would it be worth picking Jaensch back up and getting Hibbo later?

    • I like it. And I’d go Landgon to Hibberd. Hibbo is rock solid, guaranteed 80-100 per game. Jaensch is a bit more up and down for mine.

    • Jaensch has the higher ceiling it seems, I’d prolly go him.

      • Jaensch purely because of price. HIbberd is amazing and a lock in my team but is at his peak price an will not likely go anywhere whereas jaensch is set to climb back towards 500k
