  • Which premo should I trade cotchin to ( except rockliff, I’ll wait tell his price goes down)
    Mid:ablett,Pendlebury, selwood,Barlow,fyfe, beams, cotchin, hallahan( Lloyd, obrien)

    And who should I upgrade Higgins or kolojashnij and to who
    Def: barrel,Simpson,swallow,Higgins,suckling,kolo( Langdon,bews)

    Got 200k in the bank. Thoughts would be appreciated! Please help!

    • i would upgrade hallahan to jack macrae or someone like liam shiels. shiels is averaging 99 and his next three rounds he should do well. hope thta helps you mate

  • who premo defender should i get. Can get anyone. Already have simpson,hibberd, mcveigh and jaensch

  • Thoughts on watson to stevie j and tyson to swan

  • brilliant

  • miles or o’brien

  • Hanley or Hibberd?

  • I have $531,373 and trading out Sam Lloyd, should I bring in someone like McGlynn, Bird, Chappy or go for the cheaper Wingard?
    Thoughts would be great!

  • Great work again guys! Calvin beat me i got to 1860
    Had 12 premos score under 80 and ben lennon’s 7. Had 19 of my 22 not reach their average!!!
    Also saw my top 500 ranking disappear well outside top 1000

  • Liam sheils a good swap for watson, makes $100,000 and a consistent 95 -100

    • You want guys that will average 105+ at this point of the season and are keepers, not stepping stones.

  • sorry my link didnt work Def: simpson,bartel,b.smith,Ryce shaw,T langdon,s higguns(gergio,c cameron)Mid:pendulbry,abblet,fyfe,beams,kennedy,l greenwood, rockliff, d tyson( clay beams, jake loyld)FWD: jamie elliot, R.Nahas, dangerfeild,zorko,robbie gray, L,dalhaus(p ambrose,G rohan)RUC: s jacobs,sandi(currie,naismith)

    have 118k what should i do?

  • If I go Watson to Barlow this week I have the perfect mids that you mentioned. If you are looking at a Pod Premo Def go for Hanley looks ser to kill it predicting top 3 def from here on out

  • I think Rockliff will be #1 on Calvins Captains this week.

  • Hey guys thoughts on watson to barlow or stevie J… Barlow has easier draw… But stevie J has st kilda but has a b/e of 150 or so… Who should i get?

  • Nice work boys!
    Always a must listen!

  • thoughts on ibbotson for next couple of weeks while johnson and mcpharlin and also devon smith or dahlhaus

  • I read most weeksbut first time posting, I’m currently sitting in the top 100 in Fantasy and have been in the top 1k since round 2. I’m not sure why everyone is so eager to trade Cotchin the last couple of weeks, while he isn’t scoring what I was hoping 99% of teams including myself have bigger things to do than do a slight upgrade. Well that’s my piece of advice and here’s my question:

    I have one trade left after trading Watson -> Barlow (Best side trade this week in my opinion due to Stevie Js high break even, will probably pick up next week)

    My last trade I have either a) Langdon D6 -> Hanley, given his low break even and a current top 6 defender for sure based on form.

    or b) Polec upgrade (with only 517k available) to a possible Goddard type.

    c) Anything to suggest

    If anyone has any Fantasy related questions post below I’ll reply quickly since I’m currently studying for exams.

    Cheers.

    • My team
      DEF: bartel, mcveigh, m johnson, swallow, suckling, griffiths, bench ( georgio, bews)
      MID: Ablett, Beams, Swan, Ebert, Liberatore, Johnson, Fyfe, murphy ( Z obrien, Honeychurch)
      RUCK: sandilands, mclntosh ( derickx, currie )
      FWD: Dangerfield, martin, chapman, riewoldt, gunston, t walker ( Rohan, cameron )
      55k in bank what should i do this week
      cheers

  • I would be looking at doing upgrades in your defence. Your forward is pretty solid (I’m waiting/hoping on saint riewoldt to come good), as long as you’re happy on tex scoring. Rucks fine for now, you have derickx on the bench as possible income, so that’s fine/ Your mid is pretty solid as well apart from no Rocky. Your defence is a main concern with Johnson/griffiths both on field. This week I would definitely (make sure after teams are announced of course) be making a Johnson(423k) -> Hanley(452k), leaves you with only 26k I would probably then be looking at a downgrade from one of the guys on your bench because money is a big priority here. My next suggestion would be to downgrade Derickx to Lowden (Or possibly Martin which you could look at DPP later with your forward if he starts to rack up consistent scores, Lowden will only play until Mcevoy is back in but he is ideal for quick cash). Sorry for the paragraph.

  • I follow the traders most week but first time posting, I’m currently sitting in the top 100 in Fantasy and have been in the top 1k since round 2.

    or b) Polec upgrade (with only 517k available) to a possible Goddard type.

    c) Possible DPP bringing in Hanley for Polec in the midfield for a week, and then swap him with langdon as D6 and upgrade Langdon in the midfield to Stevie J.

    d) Anything to suggest

    If anyone has any Fantasy related questions post below I’ll try reply somewhat quickly since I’m currently studying for exams.

    Cheers.
