Life without Ablett – Ep. 17, round 17

Over 130,000 NAB AFL Fantasy coaches collectively gasped when Gary Ablett dislocated his shoulder on Saturday evening. The superstar will spend at least three weeks on the sidelines. His replacement and what we do with the suspended Rockliff and Goddard is the main order of business for The Traders.

  • Actually u called me out to a captain selection this week. My #1 captain will be Barlow vs gws. Stevie J solid but dees are tag happy and I see as risky. Will be interesting on Calvin’s thoughts wed. As No GAJ or rocky makes it interesting

  • Love your work boys but I think there’s a glitch in the website tonight, seem to be getting cross signals with the Jerry Springer Show !!!
    My negative 3 goes to Trolls

  • What is the best option to trade ablett to? Reply the number.

    1. Sloane
    2. Liberatore
    3. Priddis
    4. Cotchin
    5. Bartel
    6. Zaharakis
    7. Treloar
    8. Heppell

  • Number 4 mate. Cotchin a gun

  • Priddis, JPK or Ellis

  • I traded Beams out weeks ago for Greenwood and haven’t missed him at all.

  • I’m thinking of just tanking this week having the midfield trifecta and only shenton/Z.obrien on the bench. Thinking of going Gaz to SJ/Greenwood & Suckers to NDS/Bartel.

  • I have 4 midfielders out this week. Can anyone beat that for carnage? (Rockliff, Goddard, Rosa and Ablett). I need Gleeson on the field to get to 22…

  • Going Gaz > Greenwood. Have a midfield of Rocky Pendles Swan Beams Johnson Barlow Prestia Greenwood

  • Hey guys,

    Just wondering if you can help. Trading out Ablett and Paul Crapman (finally) should I bring in Stevie J or Sloane and J Selwood?

  • Who would you trade in only got $500,000.
    J Selwood
    S Gibson
    O meara
    A swallow

    • If its for your backline go Hodge, if your trading in a mid go A Swallow he’s finding form and getting better each week from injury, his price will go up a fair bit then trade in a premium mid for him

  • Would it be risky havin 4 swans (jpk, jack, mcveigh, Parker) players by gettin jpk this week or should I go johnson to have 3 cats players (bartel jelwood & Johnson)????
