  • DEF: McVeigh, Langdon, Swallow, Suckling, Simpson, Hibberd (Langford, Bews)

    MID: Ablett, Pendles, Beams, Watson, Dangerfield, Heppell, rockliff, Johnson, ( Hallahan, Cunningham)

    RUC: Sandi, Jacobs (Thurlow, Currie)

    FWD: Gunston, N Reiwildt, Dahlhaus, Higgins, pavlich, Walker (Lloyd, rohan)

    Cash: $34,045

    Thinking of either bringing in Franlin this week along with a downgrade and then barlow next week. Or should I get barlow this week?

    What other possible trades?

  • Is it time to ditch Langford or Kolo? Who first?

  • Two things:
    1) Polec -> Barlow, and Hickey (yes I kept him) -> Stefan Martin.

    2) How you look up the worst ranked team in the whole Fantasy Comp? I know I’m currently 10150th ish, but out of how many teams… So who’s got the worst team out there (that’s even trying…)

  • What should I do?

    1. Langford to Howard
    2. Langford to litherland
    3. Jake loyd to o’brien keep Langford
    4. Hallahan to o’brien keep loyd and Langford

  • What DEF premium should I trade in. Ive already got:
    Simpson, Bartel, McVeigh, Hibberd, Suckling

  • I’m interested in knowing who people rate as the top 8 mods of the year so far and who they think will keep it up.

    Me: Rocky, GAJ, SJ, Beams, Pendles, Heppell, Kennedy and Barlow.

    These guys have been good upto now and I think will be some of the best for the rest of the year

  • Hallahan OUT makes a few decisions easy for me

  • O’brien or shenton as M10?
    extra cash will help next week but not sure if its worth it

    • O’Brien. you will save some money and at m10 its not gonna matter to much if he plays sub or stuffs up.

    • o’brien to save the cash and m10’s dont need to play anyway so yeah dont go wasting your $$

    • easily shenton for me. getting a lot of the ball and scoring well and better JS then O’Brien (wouldn’t be surprised if he’s the sub this week)

      Plus Shenton dual position adds flexibility

  • Def: Hibberd, Simpson, Swallow, Jaensch, Burgoyne, Langdon (griffiths, bews)
    Mid: Gaz, Pendles, Beams, Swan, Polec, Watson, Cotchin, Rocky (Langford, hallahan)
    Rck: Sandilands, Jacobs (currie, Derickx)
    Fwd: Danger, Parker, Martin, Gunston, Zorko, Bruest (ambrose, McInnes (loophole))
    Any ideas on trades? Want it get rid of Polec
    Thoughts would be appreciated

    DEF: Simpson, McVeigh, Hibberd, Hooker, Suckling, Swallow (Bews, Tippet)

    MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Beams, Watson, Cotchin, Ebert, Goddard, Polec (Hallahan, Langdon)

    RUCK: Jacobs, Sandilands (Derickx, Currie)

    FWD: Dangerfield, Dahlhaus, Gunston, Zorko, Martin, N.Riewoldt (Ambrose, Cameron)

    160k in bank

    Option 1: Tippet -> Obrien via langdon and Polec -> barlow
    Option 2: Cotchin -> Joel Selwood and Polec -> barlow
    Option 3: Hallahan -> Obrien and Polec -> barlow
    Option 4: Langdon -> Obrien and Polec -> Rockliff

    not sure which option to do?? Anyone consider any other options? thanks

    • 4 for value and better player

    • Can you please help me with above :)

    • can someone else please help me?

    • Option 4, pity you can’t go Hallahan > Obrien and Polec > Rocky but we only have so much cash haha.

    • isn’t tippet out long term?

      if so, then option 1 as he’s just rotting on your bench. i agree to upgrade langdon soon but not urgent this week

    • I agree with No.1
      Tippett wont play and having Langdon there at least gives you some decent bench cover and is scoring well.
      Don’t think Hallahan did much wrong so im holding for a week in the hope he plays next week
      Agree that Barlow is your man to get

  • Hey need some trade ideas really confused on what to do.

    My team:

    DEF: Suckling, Langford, Swallow, Simpson, Bartel, Jaensch, (Georgiuo, Bews)
    MID: Ablett, Pendles, Beams, Polec, Hallahan, Watson, Cotchin, Fyfe, (Shenton, Riley)
    RUC: McIntosh, Sandi, (Thurlow, Currie)
    FWD: Gunston, Riewoldt, Martin, Dangerfield, TEX, Parker, (Rohan, Honeychurch)

    Kitty: $315,951

    I really need some ideas for trades and other ideas.

  • Who should I downgrade first
    Loyd or Hallahan or Langford who to

    • 1. Lloyd to Cameron, Shenton
      2. Langford and hallahan are the same
      Can you please help me with mine :)

      • Should said it better I have jake loyd and Mitch Hallahan in mid and Langford on bench in defence.

    • Hallahan and Langford have both been dropped for returning players but Lloyd looks pretty safe in the team ATM so the two hawkas

    DEF: Simpson, Hibberd, McVeigh, Swallow, Suckling, Langdon (Langford, Bews)
    MID: Rockliff, Beams, Ablett, Pendlebury, Watson, Liberatore, Ebert, Hallahan (Lloyd, Honeychurch)
    RUC: Mumford, Sandilands (Derrickx, Currie)
    FOR: Parker, Dangerfield, Martin, Dahlhaus, Gunston, Walker (Shenton, Ambrose)
    Cash: $256,999

    I am thinking of trading Ebert to Barlow as he is leaking cash, then also Langdon to Bartel. Although I think Bartel is a bit expensive – would appreciate your thoughts on other trades. Cheers

  • Def: Simpson, Hibberd, Mcveigh, swallow, suckling, Langdon (Laidler, Langford)
    Mid: Ablett, rocky, pendles, beams, Swan, jelwood, wines, Hallahan (j.lloyd , Shenton)
    Ruck: Jacobs, Sandilands (currie, thurlow)
    Fwd: danger, boomer, Parker, Martin, dahlhaus, Breust (Cameron, Ambrose)

    Option 1: Langdon > Jaensch + Breust > any forward premo

    Option 2: Langford > Litherland + Hallahan > any midfield premo

    Option 3: Hallahan > downgrade + Langdon/Breust > upgrade = Lloyd or Shenton as m8

    What’s the best option? 120,000 remaining, comments appreciated

    • hallahan not playing so that’s priority – go him to goddard or barlow by downgrading laidler id say.

  • Who should I trade out of jake loyd or Mitch Hallahan to o’brien

  • Watson or barlow?

    • barlow because of the dream run coming up. but if you want a league win for this week go jobe. can you please help me above

  • hallahan as jake lloyd still has a chance to play with rohan pyke cunningham and b.jack on the extended bench.. can you pleas ehelp me above cheers

  • Looking to cash out Langdon as he is BE is about right. The crazy thought that pooped into my head to do a sideways move to Hurn.
    Wait let me explain.
    Hurn’s BE is 27, the last 4 matches he has scored 95, 122, 80 and 105.
    So is he possible to get me an extra $100k in a few weeks as opposed to holding Langdon in the D6 spot?

    • I am in the same dilemma. It depends if your fantasy or real dream team. If your fantasy and you look to offload Langdon to the big guns, this week or next week, I’d hold, Langdon should still manage and 80 which his price will rise about 10k so if your not planning to offload Langdon in next 2 weeks, trader to hurn

    • Gotta watch out for those crazy thoughts
      Worse than seagulls

    • If you don’t have Jaensch i think he is your man

  • I have Jacobs in ruck and no cover on the bench, do I trade him!? Worried that he will be a late withdrawal has anyone heard anything about him?

    • pretty sure he’ll play but crows have recalled mckernan probably to cover him if hes a late out

    • tough game this week regardless vs sandi but i’d just hope for the best this week unless you’ve got a trade to burn.

      i’m in the same boat but have derickx as backup

      mumford has the better fixtures coming up

      • I reckon with McKenna being picked Jacobs will be a late out and with no cover may need to play it safe and bring the mummy in

  • Hi guys i have no ruck cover so instead of hallahan to shenton should i go currie to lowden from hawthorn

    • upto you if you want to risk it especially if you have Jacobs in your aisw… if you want to have bench cover.. go SMartin bit more value but will get more games than Lowden

  • keep cotchin or trade to libba/jack/stevie j, my other trade polec to barlow

    • Get in Stevie J for Cotchin

      • changed my mind, going with prestia, proven and very cheap for his scoring

        • +1.. a YOLO pick! consistent player… going to be a DT gun in the future

    • 1. Rocky
      2. JPK
      3. Libba
      4. Barlow
      5. Goddard
      6. Jack
      7. Stevie J (still has high BE and wait till he has a blinder then get him in!)

      Could you please answer my question below :)

  • Langdon > Litherland
    Hallahan > 530k mid
    Cornes, Ebert, Boyd, Gibson, Jack, Sloane?

  • 1. Parker + Jaensch


    2. Buddy/Bird + Bartel

  • 1. Polec to Lecras via dangerfield and Cotchin to Barlow
    2. Polec to Barlow and Langford to O’Brien

    Also just quickly, which top midfielder premo should I get in future? Already have ablett, rocky, beams, Pendleton, Cotchin, Watson and swan.


  • will hooker go big this week?

    • No he’s reached his peak and he’ll average 65-85 for the year.
      Can you please help me above :)

  • Who will be the top 6 Defenders by years end??

  • who to play on the field at F6 , billings , shenton , ambrose and why ?

  • Hey need some trade ideas really confused on what to do.

    My team:

    DEF: Suckling, Langford, Swallow, Simpson, Bartel, Jaensch, (Georgiuo, Bews)
    MID: Ablett, Pendles, Beams, Polec, Hallahan, Watson, Cotchin, Fyfe, (Shenton, Riley)
    RUC: McIntosh, Sandi, (Thurlow, Currie)
    FWD: Gunston, Riewoldt, Martin, Dangerfield, TEX, Parker, (Rohan, Honeychurch)

    Kitty: $315,951

    What do I do with Hallahan and Langford and who do I upgrade them to. Plus I need to get rid of Polec.

    I really need some ideas for trades and other ideas.

  • Hey guys, need some advice.

    I want to get rid of reivoldt, but have i missed the boat…. Ive got a gun forward line of parker, martin, zorko, dalhaus, danger and reivoldt.. my only rooks on the field are tyson and langdon.

    Sitting top 300

    I was going to go reivoldt to lecras who i think is a better long term option… or should i get rid of hallahan and aim to upgrade langdon next week.

  • Have $256k

    Thoughts on:
    1. Billings to Parker & Hallahan to O’brien – leaves $229k
    2. Billings to Buddy & Hallahan to O’brien – leaves $322k
    3. Billings to Buddy & Polec to Barlow – leaves $18k

    Any of the above means I will be fielding either Dunston or Shenton in the mids.

    • Parker is the inform fwd of the comp so very hard to go past him but in option 3 ur bringing in two premos so either of those

    • It depends on your plans for future weeks. If that gives you a full premo side or you only have 1 more upgrade then i would go 3 as the cash isn’t as important.
      If you want to bring in someone like Stevie J next week you may need that extra money… In which case i would go 2 just for franklins value

      • options 1 & 2 leave me with Polec and Dunstan/Shenton on the field as last upgrades. It will be good if Polec comes good as I would then be able to ugrade dunstan (to barlow/SJ) next week and have polec as the last rookie on the field.

      • I reckon I will go with option 2. It will give me the best opportunity to be able to upgrade both Polec & Dunstan next week. I can always trade a NRoo, Gunston or DHaus to Parker in the future (or Buddy if he goes back to being Spuddy Franklin).

  • Hey guys need some help who to play on the field at F6 , billings , shenton , ambrose and why ?

  • 1. Polec to Lecras via dangerfield and Cotchin to Barlow
    2. Polec to Barlow and Langford to O’Brien

    Thoughts? Which trade should I do?

  • DEF: Simspon, mcveigh, hibberd, swallow, jaensch, langdon (langford, bews)

    MID: Beams, ablett, bartel, Watson, Swan, Cotchin, Ellis, Polec (Hallahan, salem)

    RUCK: Sandilands, Mcevoy (Derickx, Currie)

    FWD: Parker, Dangrfield, Martin, Daulhaus, riewoldt, billings (ambrose, cameron)

    350k in the kitty. Any ideas of trades would be extremely helpful! Thanks.

    • Should definitely trade McEvoy to Mumford (if you trust he’ll stay injury-free). McEvoy isn’t playing this week.

      You need to upgrade langdon, polec and billings at some stage. I would start with billings first – perhaps upgrade to zorko for value. Langdon and Polec should still be able to provide you some consistent points for at least this round.

  • Hey guys, just would like to ask if anyone had the B/E’s fir Swan and Barlow?

    Thanks :)

    • Swan:

      Afl Fantasy – 131
      RDT – 148


      Afl Fantasy – 102
      RDT – 88

      These aren’t perfect but they should be close. I got them from fanfooty and Fantasy Freako’s Rave.

  • Who to upgrade Polec to?

    1. Polec to Jelwood
    2. Polec to Barlow
    3. Polec to Goddard


    Bartel – McVeigh – Swallow – Suckling – Jaensch – Langdon // KKolo – Tippet

    Rocky – Gaz – Stevie J – Beams – Montagna – Jelwood – Shenton – Crouch // Hallahan – Cunningham

    Sandilands – Derickx // Grundy – Currie

    Danger – Parker – Chappy – Dusty – Nick Riewoldt – Tex Walker // Billings – Rohan

    Do I go the double downtrade of KKolo -> Litherland & Crouch -> Obrien, leaving me with 722k in the bank do go bang next week (Langford -> Simpson & Hallhan -> Pendles)…That leaves me with Shenton & O’Brien on the field for this week and Langdon on the field in the backline. I am playing a lower ranked opponent in my league this week so ‘hopefully’ I should win comfortably.

    Or do I go Grundy -> Martin & Derickx -> Mumford?

    Any suggestions ?

    • how much cash do you have in your bank?

      • 294k.

        I’m thinking of going Cunningham -> Pendles & Crouch -> Obrien.

        Keeping KKolo for another week.

        Then next week Billings / KKolo downgrade -> Derickx to Mumford. Then the following week Langdon -> Simpson from Billings / KKolo (whoever is left over) downgrade.

        Thoughts. I feel as though I’ve got a lot of money on my benches at the moment..

  • Can some one confirm Barlow BE?
    Footywire & Fantasy Freako say 102
    but Roy says Barlow at 59

    • Don’t know where Roy got that from
      Fantasy site says it is 102

      • Cheers – may delay Barlow buy at little cost (102 vs 59 BE) to cover my losses of Hallahan and Langford

  • cotchin – barlow?
    cotchin – JPK?
    cotchin – libba?

    my mids are:
    swan, pendals, beams, cotchin, b.ellis, watson, jwood, gaz (hallahan, lloyd)

  • dunstan – barlow or jpk ????

  • Langdon to Jaensch (with bews as cover)
    Langford to Hurn (Langdon as cover)?
