Round 18 Lockout Chat – Part A

PARTIAL LOCKOUT INFORMATION: The Friday night (18th July) lockout at 7:50pm AEST will see the 10 teams playing this weekend (Carlton, North Melbourne, St Kilda, Fremantle, GWS, Geelong, Port, Melbourne, Western Bulldogs and Essendon) locked out while we can edit players from the other 8 teams up until next Friday (25th July) at 8:40pm AEST.

PLEASE NOTE: Trades cannot be reversed if they include teams that are playing this weekend – that means if it’s a double trade including one from this weekend and one from next, then you won’t be able to reverse. Same goes for DPP trades. Our advice is to only trade what you need to this week and hold your trade(s) until next week.




Discuss the round as it progresses in the comments. Post your scores at the completion of games but be sure to indicate how many players have played, including your captain. Follow the live scores all weekend via Chad’s DT Live website.

  • 831/7 inc captain. Kelly has been my only let down so far. I’ve still got Ebert and Dahlhaus to come this weekend.

  • I’ve VC’d good ol’ StevieJ for 145 which is all well and good.. The only viable loophole option i’ve got is Tom Derickx tho. Chances of him playing next weekend? :P

    • same here AJ. highly doubt derickx plays after Pyke back in form and Reid/Tippett pinch hit in the ruck. What’s the plan to bring derickx onto the field though to make him captain?

      • That’d be the plan.. will be very nervous if derickx is named emergency on thursday.

        Given that i’ll have to go with rocky C.. who may well score 140+ himself against the goldcoasters :)

  • Have Stevie J as VC but no one to loophole him with :(

  • Really channel 7 no live footy in perth today.x factor?

  • Sloane or jack

    Thinking sloane for a difference

  • i’ve done both my trades already, have VC on Stevie J. i need one of my players to pull out to use the loophole. if hibbo is a late out i will captain him, meaning i have to take spudenmakers score. PS: there are no rumours about hibbo being out, i am just looking at the options.

  • Ofcourse Ebert is doing good this week as soon as i trade him… for sure. And ofcourse Riewoldt goes for 164 when i traded him 2 weeks ago.

    • sucks! i had Tyson since week 1 and the week I finally had the chance to trade him out (for Jack) he gets his best score of the year. 130 are you f%*king kidding me!

      • Ouch! Atleast in my case Ebert did nothing in the last qtr… reinforcing why i traded him.

  • bring in buddy or parker

  • Just lost a win in my main league

  • Sorry Zaharakis owners;
    I have a good history of trading in players that have been on a roll and then when I get them they crash hard. And Zaharakis is no exception to my brilliance.

    BTW, what the hell has Carlisle been taking?

  • Well this week is awful. Only 3 tons from 10players and top it off Goddard and zaharakis have failed miserably. I’m lucky my opponent copped a donut with Sandi. Cause my premos are stinking it badly.

  • Disgusting. Only word to describe “premos” Goddard, Zaharakis and James Kelly this round. A pathetic 163 between them.

  • Dahl,Libba,Zaha,Godd,I cry everytime

  • if i use a trade this week can i reverse it ?

  • Sorry guys I had an off week. I’ll make it up to you next week.

  • 995 from 10 including a 0 for Ben Browns late out. Also have SJs 145 VC up my sleeve.

  • 1101 from 10 in fantasy, without the captain yet. Big thanks to Stevie J, Selwood, Tyson and Simpson for going big! Sitting pretty at this stage but it could all go wrong very easily. Happy with part A of the round though.

  • And 963 from 8 in RDT. Captain has NOT played yet. Very happy so far.
