  • Option 1.
    Cloke >>> Duncan
    Shenton or C.Beams >>> Barlow/Prestia/Heppel

    Option 2.
    Cloke >>> Jack
    Shenton or C.Beams >>> Selwood/Johnson

    Which option and make up?

    • op 1… and heppell

      who ever has the lower BE between shenton and beams keep

  • anyone thinking of dusty for Captain? should be good against lions

  • Should i bring in Ben Brown or just assume he wont last until finals and bring in Fraser Thurlow and pocket the extra cash?

    • brown.. least you know you still make some cash with him playing

    • +1 likely both will not be playing in the long run, so might as well try and make some cash while you can. Help below please?

  • DEF: McVeigh, Simpson, Swallow, Suckling, Hibberd, Jaensch (Langdon, Bews)
    MID: Ablett, Pendles, Beams, Swan, Barlow, Libba, Johnson, Swallow (Shenton, O’Brien)
    RUC: Sandi, Jacobs (Martin, Currie)
    FWD: Danger, Dusty, Boomer, Dahlhaus, Parker, Tex (Ambrose, Kersten)

    Option 1:
    Swallow -> Miles
    Jaensch -> Dal Santo and play Langdon & $32k left

    Option 2:
    Swallow -> Miles
    Hibbo -> Dal Santo and $85k for next week

    Thoughts on best option? Thanks!

    • I would say option 1 because hibbo should be back next week (I hope) and Langdon is good bench cover. Thats what i’m doing anyway (keeping Hibberd that is). Can u have a look at my team below thanks. :)

    • if your going to win easy op 1… if your not sure and will be close op 2

    • Option 1. jaensch BE is high and it looks like he won’t score well with Henderson back. if Hibbo is still out next wk trade him then.

    • why would you play langdon ?

      • because he averages 75 and can score tons which is pretty good cover for Hibbo if only a week out

  • DEF:McVeigh, Hibberd, Hanley, Simpson, Swallow, Suckling (Langdon, Bews)
    MID: Ablett, Rockliff, Pendles, Beams, Cotchin, Johnson, Barlow, Sellwood (Shenton, O’Brien)
    RUCK: Jacobs, Sandilands (Derickx, Currie)
    FWD: Martin, Dangerfield, Parker, Dahlhaus, Zorko, Wingard (Cameron, Kersten)
    Cash: $16,438

    I’m thinking or downgrading Derickx to Ben Brown if he plays, or downgrade Shenton to Honeychurch or Langdon to someone. I want to Upgrade one of Wingard/Suckling/Zorko Thanks. :):). I have gone Derickx to Ben Brown and Wingard to K.Jack thoughts??

  • What are your thoughts on these trades? Hibbo to Ibbottson and Shenton to Duncan?

  • Really stuck on ny fantasy trades this week, thoughts on which option’s best?

    1. Hibbo to Dal Santo and Riewoldt to Lynch (from Crows)
    2. Hibbo to Ibbo and Riewoldt to Duncan
    3. Hibbo to Ibbo and Dahlhaus to Jack

    • Option 1 if I had to choose. Ibbotson only has 1 score over 74 so far, which doesn’t scream value even after the highs of last year.

      • Thanks, that does seem the best option, I’ll have to wait until next week to get Jack.
        Ibbo came under consideration because Mcpharlin is back and Freo have a great draw. Probably not a top 6 defender though and I already have Higgins D7

        • If you have Higgins at D7 just play him in replacement of Hibberd for a week and do a downgrade for 100k and do Voldt-Duncan instead?

          • I heard Hibbo has a hamstring problem, if that’s the case unlikely that he’ll be out for just 1

  • do i go hooker to the best in bartel or save cash for next week and get Dal santo or hanley?

    backline is Simpson, McVeigh, Swallow, Suckling, langdon, hooker (hibberd, bews)

    cheers in advance

    • Depends on what the money saved enables you to do next week. If its not a huge issue id go straight for Bartel.

  • Hibb > Dal Santo
    Gunston > Dangerfield


    Hibb > Bartel
    Polec > Downgrade

  • I’ve changed my mind about 100 times this week there’s like 6 trades i wanna make. Got 180k in the bank and holding Hibberd for this week happy with 60-80 from Lith.

    Was 2k short of my ideal trade N Roo > Jack – Swan > Thompson …grr
    This is how im looking if I go N Roo > Jack – Swan > Stevie J my 2nd option

    Question is, If I don’t get Thompson this week with a BE of 55 he’s gone. Is he worth missing even with his mad form and great fixture till the end of season?
    Would you rather go N Roo > Duncan instead, get Thompson this week (against GWS) and try get Jack in next week? This would also allow more of a look at Stevie J’s form.

    I also wanna get Jacobs in for Sandi as i’m sure this will put me ahead of the pack with his current scores and when he’s rested. That’s another trade that probably has to be done this week though going on BE’s. Would you do that this week and give N Roo one more week VS carlton? Please tell what you think the best trades to make this week and what you’d leave for next. Thanks!

    • I’m pulling the trigger on Sandilands this week. The fact that freo have brought in an emergency ruckman for Hill as a late change makes me worry about a sandi late withdrawl.

    • Go Thompson and Duncan, back your gut. Jack and Stevie J at least won’t change much in value for next week, both BE over 100.
      jack n Stevie j is your option 2, the safe route. Risk vs reward mate!! I personally don’t trust Thompson despite his last 3, so im not game. I think Duncan will kick a few against the Dogs.

      • Thanks mate. Would you play Jack in mids as DPP coverage incase a FWD goes down? That would mean having Duncan instead of another premo mid in coming weeks though.

        • For this week it’s fine. Maybe look at grabbing Honeychurch as M10 to keep that link when u move Jack forward next wk.

    • Sandi – Jacobs and Swan – Thompson!!
      Nroo has a good record against Carlton aswekk

  • DEF: McVeigh, Hanley, Kelly, Swallow, Suckling, Hibberd (Delaney, Bews)
    MID: Rockliff, Ablett, Pendles, Beams, Swan, Barlow, Cotchin, Jelwood (Lloyd, O’Brien)
    RUC: Sandi, Jacobs (Thurlow, Currie)
    FWD: Danger, Dusty, Boomer, Gunston, Parker, Tex (Shenton, Kersten)

    Cash: $100,000 remaining

    I’m really stuck with what to do! Should I keep Hibberd or offload him for Dal Santo? I was also looking to get rid of Gunston/Walker to someone like Jack/Gray/Duncan/Buddy

    What do you guys think? Help is greatly appreciated

  • Whispers roaming around that Selwood, S Johnson & Bartel may all be late OUTS for Sundays game! uhoh

    • Yep i’m sure they will rest them ALL at the same time.

    • hope it’s only Selwood ;)

      • Thats why I went and bought my boy Miles a few weeks ago. Solid 110 vs Bris this week coming up incase Jelwood is rested

    • another rumor… they wont rest 3 of their best players together, not when dogs are playing pretty good and competitive footy, cats need every win to remain in top 4.

  • gaz or pendals as captain?

  • help me decide on this please guys


    1. Derickx to B.Brown

    2. Ambrose to Blaine Johnson

    • 2 IMO

    • Those your only 2 downgrade options? Show us your team Sphinct

      • bartel swallow hibberd mcveigh suckling higgins (langford bews)

        rocky ablett beams pendles barlow goddard libba swan (honey o’brien)

        jacobs sandi (derickx currie)

        parker d.martin s.martin danger dahlhaus gray (ambrose kersten)

        $70,671 cash

        • Going to go Langford to Simpson i think then bench hibbo but dont know what to do for other trade?

  • Anyone think Sandi getting rested? I know Apeness is now an emergency, but wasn’t it Zac Clarke that was touch and go last week?

  • J. Martin, Lonergan or Morabito- which one goes biggest this weekend?

    Need one for M9 and might be needed to cover Jelwood so need them to score well.

  • Seriously can’t the cats just name their 22 already. These rumours suck when they’re playing at 440 on a Sunday!!

  • With redden now out for the season, might just be more playing time in the midfield for Hanley. Doesn’t hurt beams either!

  • Hey need some trade ideas.

    My team without trades:

    DEF: Jaensch, Swallow, Bartel, Suckling, Simpson, Mcveigh, (Bews, Georgiuo)
