Jeppa’s Juniors – Round 4

Round 4 was definitely a memorable one for our rookies. In a tough week for most coaches, many ‘juniors’ scored over and above our so-called reliable premiums. Four rooks reached the ton in Round 4 with another seven scoring above 80. Deciding whom to field each week is becoming quite a challenge but recent form is always our biggest indicator and selecting players based on their averages is a logical approach.

Positional changes will occur in Fantasy ahead of Round 6 and plenty of rookies will find themselves gaining DPP status. Here’s my list of likely changes:

  • Christian Salem, Fwd/DEF
  • Kamdyn McIntosh, Def/MID
  • Aaron Vandenberg, Mid/FWD
  • Ben Newton, Mid/FWD
  • Isaac Heeney, Mid/FWD
  • Touk Miller, Mid/FWD
  • Mitch Clark, Fwd/RUC…this one would be ideal!

It’s not a train smash if you don’t have these players but it does make trading a whole lot easier going forward. Plan ahead!

 

Three Gamers

Cripps

KEEPERS

Holy hat, we have got ourselves a cashcow! If Patrick Cripps (Mid. $270,000, -44 be AF. $277,300, -61 be DT) continues his purple patch, he will join the likes Jaeger O’Meara, Tom Mitchell and Dyson Heppell in Fantasy rookie folklore. To score 137 Fantasy points in a game (3rd highest score overall) is no easy task for a player in just his second year. How’s this for a stat line…12 kicks, 18 handballs, 5 marks, 9 tackles and 1 goal. If you don’t have him, it’s not too late to trade him in!

Tough. That sums up Aaron Vandenberg (Mid. $266,000, -22 be AF. $252,900, -38 be DT) in one word. The lad from Canberra laid an unprecedented 12 tackles against Richmond last Friday night to go with his 11 kicks, 9 handballs, 2 marks, 1 goal and 106 Fantasy points. Vandenberg was a big reason why the Dees got the 4 points in Round 4 and in my eyes was best on ground. His hunger for the contest and will to succeed at AFL level should see him score 75+ for the next couple of weeks at least.

Fantasy aside, it is hard not to get excited about Jesse Hogan (Fwd. $301,000, 21 be AF. $249,200, 13 be DT). In just his fourth AFL game, Hogan made All-Australian Alex Rance look like a second rate defender. The young forward finished with 13 possessions, 6 marks, 3 tackles, 2 goals, 77 Fantasy points and was one of Melbourne’s best on the day. Hogan currently leads the league in contested marks with 13! Here’s hoping he can maintain that effort against Freo this weekend. Fellow Demon, Christian Salem, 76 (Fwd. $287,000, 14 be AF. $275,600, 20 be DT) is growing in his new role at half back. He’s by no means flawless but his teammates look to give him the ball out of defence and his lethal left foot kick usually finds a target. Salem is a certainty to gain defender status in Fantasy next week giving his owners plenty of options.

The Bulldogs are up and about and Michael Talia (Def. $283,000, -11 be AF. $287,000, -28 be DT) is benefiting greatly. The much-improved defender had 23 disposals (19 uncontested), 13 marks and 101 Fantasy points against the Crows and is an unsung hero. I took a punt on Talia prior to Round 1 but never did I think he’d hit three figure scores. Cameron McCarthy (Fwd. $273,000, -9 be AF. $265,300, -10 be DT) is another tall exceeding expectations. McCarthy annihilated the Suns kicking a bag of 5 goals and scoring 98 Fantasy points. He faces the Eagles this Saturday night and given their tall defenders issues, McCarthy may get off the leash again.

Low breakevens and good scores from Touk Miller, 84 (Mid. $278,000, 1 be AF. $227,800, -49 be DT), Cameron Ellis-Yolmen, 82 (Mid. $284,000, -16 be AF. $274,900, -20 be DT), Jack Lonie, 79 (Fwd. $235,000, 7 be AF. $199,800, 1 be DT), Mitch Clark, 78 (Fwd. $260,000, 9 be AF. $234,800, -9 DT), Mason Wood, 75 (Fwd. $284,000, 21 be AF. $272,000, -3 be DT), Angus Brayshaw, 72 (Mid. $312,000, 42 be AF. $259,300, 10 be DT), Dom Sheed, 68 (Mid. $287,000, 21 be AF. $288,300, 21 be DT) and Cory Gregson, 66 (Mid. $222,000, -3 be AF. $206,600, -20 be DT) means you should hold these players.

DON’T PANIC

Popular defenders Kamdyn McIntosh, 47 (Def. $303,000, 21 be AF. $265,300, 24 DT) and Adam Oxley, 36 (Def. $256,000, 10 be AF. $248,600, 15 be DT) were well below their best last week but don’t rite them off just yet. I’m not expecting miracles but both still have a little more cash to gain.

Ben Newton, 60 (Mid. $287,000, 31 be AF. $277,800, 38 be DT), Nathan Van Berlo, 58 (Mid. $339,000, 47 be AF. $304,200, 51 be DT), Adam Saad, 50 (Def/Mid. $247,000, 10 be AF. $217,200, 8 be DT) and even Mitch Honeychurch, 24 (Fwd. $265,000, 43 be AF. $270,700, 70 be DT) are in the same boat as McIntosh and Oxley. I wouldn’t trade out a cashcow based on one poor performance.

TRADE, TRADE, TRADE

If I haven’t categorised a player from Round 4 under ‘Keepers’ or ‘Don’t Panic’ then trade them out as soon as you can but when appropriate.

Special mention for Isaac Heeney, 17 (Mid. $307,000, 68 be AF. $222,500, 44 DT) who had a shocker against the Dockers and has high break-evens this week as a result. I wouldn’t be surprised if Heeney is given the green vest against the Bulldogs on Saturday. Cut your loses!

 

Two Gamers

Tarrant

It’s rare that a tall defender has 20 plus possessions but Robbie Tarrant (Fwd. $210,000, -27 be AF. $172,200, -70 be DT) has done it two weeks running. Fit and injury free, he is working hard and the rewards are coming his way. Tarrant finished with 88 Fantasy points against Geelong and his breakevens are very appealing as a result. History suggests that key position defenders do not score well however guys like Josh Gibson and Cale Hooker are slowly changing that trend. He’s not in my trade plans but I give you my blessing to bring him in. Start him on your bench though.

In his second game back from a second knee reconstruction, Brendan Whitecross (Def. $267,000, 23 be AF. $221,800, 1 be DT) showed his potential. Playing predominantly at half forward against good opposition in the Power, he had 19 touches, 8 marks, 3 tackles and 84 Fantasy points. Hawthorn’s ‘possession’ game plan sees an outside player like Whitecross get plenty of it and I’m hopeful that he can score above 70 Fantasy points most weeks. He’s Dreamteam relevant only due to price in my opinion.

Power pair Aaron Young, 82 (Fwd/Mid. $282,000, 8 be AF. $236,300, -30 be DT) and Nathan Krakouer, 76 (Fwd/Mid. $189,000, -15 be AF. $108,900, -74 be DT) have gone from bench warmers to on field contributors. Young is in the tough stuff as an in and under midfielder and Krakouer is controlling things down back. I’m not prepared to cough up the cash for Young but I am bringing in a cheap Krakouer in both Fantasy and Dreamteam. Get on the Krak bandwagon but use him as bench cover!

I liked Dennis Armfield’s (Fwd/Mid. $211,000, -6 be AF. $184,100, -31 DT) game. He’s not blessed with an abundance of skill but you can never question his effort. My old mate from Kalamunda had 7 tackles to go with 15 possessions, 2 marks, 1 goal and 81 Fantasy points. If Krakouer wasn’t available, I’d consider him. Unfortunately, Jackson Thurlow 52 (Def/Mid. $270,000, 21 be AF. $282,200, 18 be DT) couldn’t back up his Round 3 effort last weekend. The utility was used as a third tall in defence against the Kangas and got his hands on it just 11 times. Thurlow is too pricey now.

Young Lukas Webb, 64 (Fwd. $228,000, 23 be AF. $117,900, -39 be DT) and Jake Kelly, 51 (Def. $165,000, -8 be AF. $124,600, -45 be DT) don’t play Fantasy friendly roles. Both are used as lock down defenders, which limits their ball wining ability. Pass.

Key forward Patrick McCartin, 27 (Fwd. $272,000, 75 be AF. $222,900, 63 be DT) had little impact again this week as did Harris Andrews, 26 (Def. $160,000, 18 be AF. $117,900, -11 be DT), Corey Gault, 22 (Fwd. $231,000, 62 be AF. $241,000, 78 be DT) and Josh Walker, 22 (Fwd. $241,000, 49 be AF. $278,800, 72 be DT). Do not trade in these blokes.

Billy Hartung, 69 (Mid. $277,000, 15 be AF. $258,800, -6 be DT) and Brendon Ah Chee, 20 (Mid. $120,000, 41 be AF. $124,600, 38 be DT) copped the green vest in their games. Hartung came on at the end of the first quarter after Brian Lake suffered a knee injury and the speedster managed to score a respectable 69. Both Hartung and Ah Chee are prone to the green so avoid them at all costs.

 

One Gamers

Cutler

Tom Cutler (Def. $260,000, -1 be AF. $254,000 DT) had a heap of the footy against West Coast and scored a whopping 107 Fantasy points but geez he had a lot of turnovers. Watching the match first hand at the GABBA, his poor disposal efficiency cost the Lions dearly. To have 32 possessions playing at half back / back pocket is a big plus however and given that the Lions play Gold Coast this weekend, he could be worth a punt in Fantasy. In the same match, Fraser McInnes (Fwd. $140,000, -7 be AF. $124,600 DT) showed a bit playing as a key forward. The big fella had 15 possessions, 8 marks, 1 goal and 66 Fantasy points on debut and Adam Simpson was very happy with his output. McInnes will line up again this week but Callum Sinclair is knocking on the door for his spot. I would stay clear of McInnes.

Blaine Boekhorst, 58 (Mid. $247,000, 33 be AF. $132,900 DT) and Clay Smith, 46 (Mid. $198,000, 28 be AF. $212,200 DT) were serviceable for their clubs. I have little doubt that both will improve this weekend but they’re a little too expensive for Fantasy. Boekhorst could be a Dreamteam option next week if he can handle the pressure on the big stage this Friday night. Notable mention to James Stewart, 54 (Fwd. $213,000, 26 be AF. $261,500 DT) who should be avoided due to job security concerns.

Matt McDonough, 33 (Def. $223,000, 46 be AF. $250,800 DT), Will Hams, 25 (Mid. $140,000, 25 be AF. $124,600 DT), Trent Dumont, 20 (Mid. $120,000, 26 be AF. $124,600 DT) and Matthew Dick, 12 (Def/Mid. $120,000, 39 be AF. $124,600 DT) wore green in their first games of the season. Dumont is one to watch! The classy midfielder arguably won North the game with a goal assist and a goal when it was in the balance. Dumont will definitely play in Round 5 but I can’t guarantee that he’ll avoid the vest.

Unfortunately, Nathan Drummond, 25 (Mid. $140,000, 25 be AF. $117,900 DT) suffered a season ending knee injury in his debut. A shame for Tiger and Fantasy fans because Drummond is a talent.

 

Please note that if I haven’t mentioned a rookie priced player above, it means I don’t rate them. Remember rooks are classified as players under $250,000 in either Fantasy or Dreamteam.

 

Keep Your Eye On

Steele

Jack Steele (Fwd/Mid. $227,000, 41 be AF. $117,900 DT) – An injury to Rhys Palmer will likely see the athletic midfielder debut against West Coast on Saturday night. Steele has been building form in the NEAFL and he was best on ground last weekend after amassing a whopping 32 possessions, 11 marks, 7 tackles, 1 goal and 142 Fantasy points. With a list boasting plenty of stars, a green vest is likely for this NSW Academy product so be careful.

Blake Acres (Mid. $166,000, 31 be AF. $208,800 DT) – Acres is more than ready for a return to AFL ranks. The second year midfielder is coming off 31 touches and 94 Fantasy points in the VFL and the Saints could definitely use another classy ball user on the outside. I suspect that Acres will likely average just 60 Fantasy points this season but his job security will be decent amongst a young Saints playing list.

Henry Schade (Def. $120,000, 21 be AF. $124,600 DT) – the axe will swing hard again at Gold Coast and Schade is in line to make his debut. The tall defender won’t be a big Fantasy scorer but he’s cheap as chips and could sit at D8 for many. Scores in the high 50’s / low 60’s is what I expect from Schade.

  • Great write up jepp. Our boys have been using Sinclair as a key def in the wafl. He might come in to play that role and let schoey have a bit more freedom. Mind you its hard to know what simmo is planning colledge should have gotten a game by now at least to see how he can impact at the top level

  • Cheers Jep. I’m guessing as you didnt mention Anderson, that trading him to Krakouer would be a good move?

  • Who are you kicking out for Krakouer Jep? You’ve said to hold onto Newton & Honeychurch so I don’t really have anyone to downgrade to him.

    • IMO Newton will score poorly against Dockers this week and basically not generate much cash after this week.

      Not worth holding onto if it means missing Krak’ first big price rise.

    • After Heeney, Newton is next on the chopping block as long as you downgrade him to make plenty of money

  • So you’re not bringing in Jake Kelly then Jeppa? Agree that as a KPP he won’t score too high but he should still be good for earning 100k or so. Any other suggestions (aside from Whitecross) for turfing out Goodes?

  • Nice article, I assuming you recomend to trade out Jed, but considering puopolo is out could he be a chance for a game?

  • Who are your main Goodes replacements Jeppa? He’s a pretty big problem for many which you didn’t address in the article.

    • Goddard will likely get the nod soon given his form and the Saints need to blood the kids

    • If you’re desperate to get rid of Goodes then Kelly is the only option.

      Personally I’m leaving him at D8 for now and making an upgrade elsewhere.

  • Should I get Krakouer or Dumont for my bench?

  • No love for Cam McCarthy Jep>?

    • Pretty sure he mentions McCarthy under the paragraph “KEEPERS”.

    • He does love him, he is listed under 3 gamer keepers…

    • Gave him half a paragraph.

      “Cameron McCarthy (Fwd. $273,000, -9 be AF. $265,300, -10 be DT) is another tall exceeding expectations. McCarthy annihilated the Suns kicking a bag of 5 goals and scoring 98 Fantasy points. He faces the Eagles this Saturday night and given their tall defenders issues, McCarthy may get off the leash again.”

  • Great article Jepp. I’m bringing in Tarrant and Webb this week in RDT, because I need Rd 11 Bye forwards, and Webb looks okay, Krak can wait until next week. It’s good to see so many rooks coming through, it means we can get downgrading and free up the cash to start bringing in some big guns.

    • Yeah there’s plenty of rooks I need to note…I was up till 1am last night finishing this off because of the number of rooks.

      Krak is on the bublle this week in RDT…get him ahead of Webb…sort out byes in later rounds?

  • Def- hodge,simmo,newnes, hunt, kmac, oxley (saad, goodes)

    Mid- pendles, heppell, sloane, parker, prestia, rich, vandenberg, cripps (Wallis, newton)

    Ruc- Goldy, belly

    Fwds- swanny, dusty, bont, mccarthy, salem, clark (Hogan, byrne)

    The trades im thinking atm is wallis —> krakour giving me 190k to go parker to lewis

    or i could go wallis to krak and parker to M.boyd, giving me 140k to get lewis next week.

    Thoughts?

  • Great write up Jeppa, what are your thoughts on Jed Anderson at the moment? Do you think I should trade Heeney/Anderson to Whitecross in RDT?

  • Who would you suggest getting in, Krakouer or Tarrant?

    • Krak for his DPP

      • I agree though with this comment as want the dpp, as said got Tarrant and now am thinking krakeor. Only because I did this – Lumbumba out – Hodge to DEF (which was plan when I got him last week) – Gray to mid – then brought in Tarrant in fwds. This however leaves Gray in mids which is nto ideal so if I trade honeychruch to kraks in fwds pocket cash and can move gray back to fwds

        Note am not concerned if Gray don’t play got plenty bench cover

    • I went Tarrant based on BE and higher scores although he is dearer, just liked him. That said though I have one trade left and am thinking of swapping honeychurch for krakeor as well. But first choice was Tarrant

  • I also have the dilemma, Krak or Tarrant?

  • I went Krak over Tarrant.
    Just a coin flip really.

  • Can anyone convince me on one out of these three:
    Oxley
    Talia
    Whitecross

    And go……..

    • Talia, finding his own.

    • Oxley – 256k , BE = 10, avg last 3 76, season 64, high 103 low 25
      Talia – 283k, BE = -11, avg last 3 77, season 76, high 101,low 40
      Whitex – 267k, BE = 23, avg last 3 63, season 63, high 84 low 41

      Based on above Talia is no brainer wins across ,most stats
      ownerships Oxley 27%, Talia 13%, White X 11% – again win for Talia hope this helps I have fantasy gold you can just line the players up (max 4 players) is best $20 u will ever spend – and that’s $20 for whole year

      • that said beware – Oxley is v Blues on MCG while Talia v Swans in Sydney if this make any difference to your decsion

  • Hey Jeppa, brilliant as always.

    I wondered if you might be able to add a paragraph each week about which rookies to pick on ground for the coming week? Every week we are all getting smashed with 100+ on the pine and 35 on the field!

    On that note, I’m wondering who to field out of Vandenberg and Newton and Oxley and Saad this week.

    • Vberg over Newton. Oxley/Saad coinflip, Ox should go 70+ against Carlton but who knows what Saad might do when GC actually win something

      • It’s also up to you to decide which rookies to play and bench

        Newton looked poor (outside of rd1) so I’d relegate him to bench duties (some people are trading completely, which might be a little premature imo)

        Carlton are bad, but DT dies when they play (yes, even for their opposition) so I’d go with Saad over Oxley (cause GC and Brisbane are both terribad)

        Vandenberg over Newton, and Saad over Oxley (JUST)

        • agreed but with the just am leaning towards Oxley – just cause I like the highs – but as you say is personal choice

    • Keep it simple mate. Go with recent form and averages. It’s not rocket science.

  • Jeppa please make it so simple that i don’t need to think about it!!

    Fantasy football requires the player to decide on who to field, who to trade….
    AFL players are not robots, and do not produce the same numbers each week!
    The only way you do well is by not following what all the other sheep are doing, but by taking a risk!!!

    **rant over**

  • Hugh Goddard has to be one to watch also, tearing it up in the VFL, handy price and DEfender positioning will be handy for say a Goodes cash relief

  • Thanks as always Jep you golden man. Most important article of DT Talk and you never fail to deliver :)

  • no rating of Anderson, and a poor rating on Heeney
    which do you drop first?

    do you keep the scoring of Heeney (as bencher anyway) even though he may lose cash, or do you have faith with the ‘dropped’ Janderson returning to the side?

    and dare say we’ll see Scharenberg in the ‘keep your eye on’ next week, scheduled to play VFL and a heck of a talent

    • Anderson has terrible JS, Heeney’s is better.

    • Get rid of Heeney!

      • I do’nt see how you could rate Anderson over Heeney Jeppa.

        • Anderson is jet, JS improved with Hawks injuries – that said though I don’t have him. In fact I would pick kark over him

        • It’s about dollars with those two, Heeney will lose you money if Im right and he cops a green vest this week if he even plays!

          • probably should’ve mentioned that I’m playing RDT

            basically going with one of them to Krakouer, but on the fence
            If Janderson is named (JS is my main concern over him) then I’ll drop Heeney, but otherwise it’s JAnderson on the outer

            that said, I do think Heeney’s reaching the end of his useful life, doesn’t seem capable of those 80+ scores to generate serious cash

  • why are we not trading honeychurch? do we see him to be able to regain his spot in the starting line up?

    • Green vest hurt last wk but not a deal breaker.

      • but do you think he will cop the vest again? because i want to get in krakour and my other rookies are: mccarthy, clark, salem, newton, vandanberg, cripps, CEY, oxley, mcintosh and saad… therefore thought honeychurch would be the best option

        • I just did a fantasy gold comparison honeychruch v krak
          Krak wins on most spots.

          Krak $189k proj – 58, BE -15, proj $ increase $34k, avg 68, 3 rnds 68, season 68, high 76, low 60

          Honey $265k – proj 49, BE 43, proj $ increase $2.8k, avg 58, 3 rnds 55, high 81, low 24

          The low for Honey hurts, fear of vest, he is playing Swans in Sydney, Krak playing Crows in Adl big game

          Krak wins for me but is luxury trade that is as long as rest of your team is ok, you will make good money if stats are correct you will make $76k on trade then another $31.2k on price increae for week so that’s a cool $107,200 – HELL YES

          • Pisser I just read my comments and have convinced myself of my trade for week lol

        • Yep agreed

    • see my comments below if you dont have the Kraken then trade Honey for him now make $107k – if you do then maybe hold

    • I think he’ll get his spot back, I think he was easily best 21 and it’s possible they were giving him an easy one after his big hit from Hodge. With that said, I’m begrudingly trading, with the possibility of getting him back later. He will gain another 100k for sure, But even with his usual 60-80 expectation, he won’t be rocketing up in value anymore for a few weeks, the cheaper guys will make their cash faster until the 24 is out of his calculations. Guess he’s a bit like Newton currently, there’s a few 10-20k rises left, but cashing him in will get you some 25-40k ones.

  • Current Rank: 1240

    Def: Hodge, Newnes, Hunt, Ibbo, Oxley, McIntosh ( Byrne, Saad )
    Mid: Lewis, Treloar, Fyfe, Parker, Beams, Cripps, CEY, Vandenberg ( Krak, Smith)
    Ruck: Jacobs, Mumford ( Cox, Holmes )
    Fwd: Swan, Dusty, Gray, Bontempelli, Clark, Salem ( McCarthy, Honeychurch )

    Have 90k in the bank for two trades, any thoughts ? So many options this week.

  • will Byrne play this week?

  • is wait n see mate cause following players who I have also are possible non starters – Hunt, Swan, Gray

  • everybodys thoughts on the top 6 premos to have at the moment for each position? (not ruck)

  • Bring in talia or whitecross????????

    • Talia

      Oxley – 256k , BE = 10, avg last 3 76, season 64, high 103 low 25
      Talia – 283k, BE = -11, avg last 3 77, season 76, high 101,low 40
      Whitex – 267k, BE = 23, avg last 3 63, season 63, high 84 low 41

      Based on above Talia is no brainer wins across ,most stats
      ownerships Oxley 27%, Talia 13%, White X 11% – again win for Talia hope this helps I have fantasy gold you can just line the players up (max 4 players) is best $20 u will ever spend – and that’s $20 for whole year

      • So you charge people $20 to line up the stats ( as above ) to help them choose the best player?

        • no on AFL fantasy if you pay for fantasy gold this is one of the features you get

    • Whitecross

  • Cash in on van berlo now or wait longer, for krak?

    • Surely you have someone else to cash in.

    • Oh Sorry, Im an idiot, why do I get Van Berlo and Vandenberg confused lol

      Yes, igonore my las t comment.

      NVB> Krak good trade

  • Hey Jep great read, thanks.

    Can you help me choose who to get in out of Talia Oxley or whiteX???? In fantasy I’m trading out lumumba.

  • any thoughts on if C BYRNE will play this week plz?

    • I’d lean towards no, they’re off a win, he’s young so they won’t want to rush him back, if he gets in I’d expect sub again, Mick’s notoriously hard on just giving the vest to the same guy over and over.

  • sorry also GRAY & SWAN will they play???? please take time to responds as I make the effort remember the site is about give and take

  • Euman, I think swan will play, the moonboot was a precaution as stated online in herald sun. Gray I’m not too confident he will play.

  • OMG Jeppa!

    You didnt mention Ayce Cordy as a rookie!

    Does that mean you dont rate him??

  • pick 2 trades. keep in mind: money will be used to upgrade DPP next week, i want byrne because i will be able to swap him with salem so don’t don’t have to field Macintosh in coming weeks:)

    Goodes to byrne
    Goodes to Kelly
    Newton to krakour
    Newton to dumont
    Honeychurch to krakour
    honeychurch to tarrant

    Thoughts and why?!?!

  • Goodes to Byrne (only if named this week)
    Honeychurch to Krak

    PS. Id much rather bring in tarrant than byrne this week for cash generation

    • would newton to krak and honeychurch to tarrant be a good move? i could then next week sway tarrant/salem into my defence for goodes and then get in byrne in my Fwd line

  • Had Lambert on my bench for a while and thinking of upgrading to Tarrant. Should I then downgrade Neale > Adams to free me up the cash?

    • I have neale, and am holding, but trade sounds good as expect adams to go well on MCG this week v Blues.

  • I NEED HELP!

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

    Trades I made: K.Lambert > R.Tarrant and L.Neale > J.Ziebell

    I’m really not sure on my trades this week and it has been doing my head in. If all goes well I’ll be trading in Boyd next week and downgrading Newton and then the next week downgrading Bruce and upgrading Bellchambers > Goldstein.

    Other trades I could do:

    1. J.Bruce > C.Byrne and T.Bellchambers > T.Goldstein
    2. J.Bruce > Byrne/B.Newton > T.Dumont/M.Clark > R.Tarrant and L.Neale > Fyfe
    3. Or something else? All comments and suggestions greatly appreciated :)

    Is it possible for me to go (salary doesn’t matter) Neale > Dahlhaus and move Bonts to the mid in 1 trade?

    • Don’t worry I found it….. What should I do with my second trade?

      • trade Bruce
        not sure how much cash you have left, but he’s pretty poor without NRoo in the side

        I took him (for a quick cash grab) and have moved him on to Everitt this week

    • I had 60K remaining*

    • No cos Neale isn’t FWD/MID therefore he can’t switch positions with Bont for him to trade to Dahlhaus.

      • doesn’t matter
        he’s trading out Neale, moving back Bont (from FWD to MID) and then bringing in Dahlhaus

        this is done using ‘advanced trades’ which is near the team value

  • Jepp

    great read. i’m considering:
    Neale –> Krak
    Honeychurch –> Tarrant

    it’ll give me 410k to upgrade my defence and perhaps Newton to a premo. Sound idea?

  • Circumstances have left me to have to field either Krak or Orazio Fantasia. Thoughts on who it should be?
