  • DEF: Eski, Newnes, T Hunt, Prince, K McIntosh, Oxley (A Saad, B Goodes)
    MID: Lewis, Barlow (c), Parker, Beamer, GAJ, P Cripps, CEY, Vandenberg, (J Anderson, Newton)
    RUC: Z. Smith, Belly, (J. Griffen, Holmes)
    FWD: R Gray, J Bartel, Swan, Dusty, Salem, M Clark (McCarthy, Honey)

    I am going to put my faith in Beamer to bounce back and hold him for now. Bont seems to be going very well but will slow down and make a good M5 and my backline needs reinforcing. So my trades for this week:
    GAJ>Bont
    Prince>B Smith unless named out then Docherty

    • Yea I like those trades!

      • In sayin that I do think prince will bounce back too so would be inclined to keep him and get rid of beams. But you never really know until aftee the matches do ya!

  • Opinions on Rischitelli?

    Beams -> Rischitelli
    Leuy -> Grundy

    • Very rischi huhu

      I don’t really think he will keep these scores up. I think you’re better off going beams to a proven premo.

  • DEF: Simpson, Newnes, Kolodjashnij, Henderson, McIntosh, Oxley (Saad, Goodes)
    MID: Lewis, Barlow, Ablett, Parker, Greene, Bontempelli, Rich, Newton (Ellis-Yolmen, Vandenberg)
    RUC: Bellchambers, Leuenberger (Cox, Downie)
    FWD: Gray, Martin, Adams, Lynch, Salem, Clark (McCarthy, Redpath)

    About $200k in the bank. Thinking Leuenberger> Goldstein & Ablett> Hodge, w/$5k left. This will allow me to shift Bontempelli & Hodge to their DEF & FWD positions over the next couple of weeks and replace those underperforming like KK….thoughts?

    • Yea those trades look good mate. KK shouldn’t drop too much in price.

      • yeah good, who knows he will probably come out and score a good one once everyone has traded him out

  • Hey guys, any help is much appreciated. My team in RDT:

    DEF: Simpson, newnes, lumumba, KK, Macintosh, Oxley (saad, Goodes)
    MID: Lewis, Parker, jelwood, priddis, NVB, CEY, heeney, Cripps (Newton, vandenburg, miller)
    RUC: Maric, TBC (downie)
    FWD: Gray, swan, dusty, Bartel, Clark, Salem (hogan, lamb)
    Roughly 300k in the kitty

    Current trades are: miller to Bont and KK to hunt

    Yay or nay? Any other glaring issues you can see?

    • In RDT, consider holding KK.

      Yeah Hunt should gain cash, and KK set to lose some, but trades are gold.
      Do you think hunt is a keeper? If you trade in Hunt and trade him out again later, you will want him to make you an awful lot of cash to make up for those 2 trades.

      Same two trades could make KK Hodge or a premo DPP mid/def later in the season.

  • My final team ahead of round 3,
    AFL Fantasy: Lewo’s Legends
    Round 2 Score: 2010
    Remaining 0k

    DEF: L.Hodge, J.Newnes, S.Higgins, J.Bruce, K.McIntosh, A.Saad (A.Oxley, B.Goodes)
    MID: J.Lewis (c), R.Sloane (vc), L.Parker, M.Priddis, L.Neale, M.Wallis, B.Newton, P.Cripps (C.Ellis-Yolmen, A.Vandenberg)
    RUCK: S.Jacobs, T.Bellchambers (T.Downie, T.Nankervis)
    FWD: R.Gray, D.Swan, D.Martin, M.Bontempelii, C.Salem, M.Clark (C.McCarthy, K.Lambert)

    Trades I made: KK > J.Bruce and D.Beams > R.Sloane
    Players I still want to get in: O.Wines, T.Goldstein and M.Honeychurch, Thoughts?

  • A.Saad or A.Oxley for D6?

  • Talia (D8 on bench) and Burger to Oxley/Bellchambers or Byrne/Grundy thoughts???

  • Thoughts on Grundy? An definite I for Lewi burger?

    • Reckon Grundy will bank more points than Belly, my problem is I couldnt afford Oxley and Grundy plus Byrne is a risk so ive gone Oxley/Belly. Burger has to go either way

  • play 2 out of honeychurch, clark, salem?

    • has to be honey and clark. Clark will bounce back this week playing Suns, Salem wont see much of it playing Crows IMO

  • Went Ibbotson -> Nelson via Saad dpp and berger -> goldstein. leaving 40k left. This means i still have lumumba and 2 rookies on field in Defence. Is it too risky having 2 rookies on field in defence? Thoughts? Next week i’ll try and trade lumumba.

  • Am i set to go for this week?

    DEF: Malceski,Newnes,Higgins,McIntosh,Saad,Oxley (Goodes,Byrne)
    MID: Lewis,Barlow,Ebert,Beams,Ellis,Wallis,Newton,CEY (Cripps,Vandenberg)
    RUC: Goldstein,Bellchambers (Downie,holmes)
    FWD: Gray,Bartel,Martin,Dahlhaus,Honeychurch,Clark (Salem,McCarthy)

    Also, who is everyone captaining?

  • Dane Swan! Tonight’s match is why you don’t EVER question the Pig and consider trading him!

  • Swan, Ox and Newnes, good stuff, fuckin’ Geary though!
