  • Well out Sandi and McDonald

    In Mitchell and Mumford

  • Best FWD?
    Already got
    Boomer, Dusty, Parker, Danger, KJack.

    Is it Zaharakis, Duncan, McGlynn or Buddy?

  • Can cover Sandi’s out with either a shift of S.Martin into the Rucks or by giving Ben Brown a guernsey in Sandi’s place.

    So it basically comes down to B.Brown vs Ambrose vs Kersten for either my R2 or F6 spot on the field.

    With all three playing teams in the bottom 4 its tough to choose which one to chuck in there! Any advice?

  • sweet! Sandi out, now i can stash him on my bench as r3 for time being Without him dropping $$$$ this week – and also allowing me to do my double upgrade in my forwards.
    (Mummy, Martin as R1+2)

  • Rock I would field kersten

  • Is it time to move Shenton on

    • Yep, dropped. Downgrade to a Morabito/ Honeychurch

    • Yep I would be if I didn’t have other priorities. Will be next round injury crisis permitting. Dropped this week as Matt said and has a breakeven ten above his average.

  • Yes send him packing

  • is zac clarke really worth going for?

    • Not as a long term starter for me. Will probably go well this week however.

  • Cam wood or Ben Brown?

    • Just tweeted this one to Jep, will let you know if he replies.

    • Ben Brown. Over $100k cheaper and better job security imo unless Carlton have totally arseholed Warnock.

      • Wood already has 60 odd AFL games under his belt. Not too sure but it seems like he could maybe do a Stefan Martin haha!

  • Sandi out throws a small spanner in the trade plans

    was planning on trading him out next week anyway, and was set on Suckers – Smitch and Ebert – JPK this week.

    But now im thinking, Sandi Out – SMartin to R2 – Zaka In & Ebert – Fyfe… which means Suckers manages to hang around for another week!

    which leaves me with:

    Mcveigh, Hodge, Swallow, Simpson, Hanley, Suckers
    Rocky, SJ, Pendles, Barlow, Beams, Heppell, Goddard, Fyfe
    Jacobs, Martin
    Boomer, Parker, Dusty, KJack, Zaka, Danger

    but then im screwed for trades next week if theres any suprise team changes.
    The only fwd apart from Zaka i would think about is Buddy… but i cant leave that trade till next week either cuz Sandi would be locked (not that i think buddy will be an out anyway, but anything can happen) and then Ebert – Fyfe still this week… split round is bloody annoying

    • good trades. i’d lock in both trades this week if you’re keen. just bad luck if there’s more carnage but it’s a calculated risk

      i’m also doing sandi > motlop and tyson > jack so both trades this week!

  • Can anyone help me? I’m commissioner of a VS dreamteam draft league and the boys are asking me how this round works. I chose to play through the byes so that our 10 team league can play each other twice and also have finals also no rolling lockout.

    Does anyone know how this will work? Cheers in advance.

  • Gray or motlop up forward and suckling to Mitchell or boomer up forward and keep suckling for this week?

  • Macrae and K.Jack


    Priddis and Motlop

  • Mumford or Jacobs for Sandi?

  • Winderlich a good POD, got a new role in the back line and looks vey comfortable. Hasn’t gone under the ton since moving back and is only 330k and be is 11.
    Worth getting ???

    • interesting stats but just one of those players who is a constant let down fantasy wise.

  • With Shenton and Sandilands not playing I’m going Sandilands out, sub Stefan Martin to Ruck, sub Shenton to fwd, sub McDonald to mid (so i have some playing on the bench) and then trading in Mitchell. Thoughts on the trade?

  • Lads… Swan –> SJ and Tex –> McGlynn (massive POD)

    I still have sandi and shenton but they can wait right?

  • Anyone know what’s going on with Missy Higgins? Is he injured?

  • Who do i play on the field out of hibberd or enright?

  • Will it work if I leave Stefan Martin on the bench in my forward line so he can cover Sandi and I can use my trades elsewhere?

    • nope, he has to be in the same position as Sandi to replace him otherwise you get a donut

  • You go to trade out Sandi. DDP Martin from forwards to rucks then you can bring in whoever to forward line. That’s 1 trade.

  • A forward emergency only covers missing forwards and so on.
