  • Team after trades.

    DEF: Mundy,Hibberd,Newnes,McIntosh,Oxley,Saad (Kelly,Byrne)
    MID: Ebert,Ellis,Barlow,Beams,Neale,Cripps,Vandenberg,Glenn (Newton,Lewis)
    RUC: Goldstein,Bellchambers (Downie,Holmes)
    FWD: Dahlhaus,Gray,Martin,Bontempelli,Salem,Honeychurch (McCarthy,Clark)

    $28,000

    Higgins to Mundy and CEY to Glenn are my current trades. Or should I go Lewis to Pendles/Hepp/Fyfe instead of the CEY trade?

    Thoughts on team and trades?

  • Fantasy team:

    D – Shaw, Smith, Newnes, Hunt, Oxley, McIntosh ( Saad, Schade)
    M – Lewis, Pendles, Fyfe, Selwood, Rich, Vandenberg, Cripps, CEY ( Newton, Krak)
    R – Goldy, Maric (Holmes, O’Brien)
    F – Gray, Martin, Swan, Bont, Salem, Tarrant (McCarthy, Clark)

    $231K in the bank.

    Planned trades are:
    1. Newton to Glenn
    2. Hunt to Dahlhaus (via Salem to def)

    This means Dahl would go to the mids to cover Lewis. Salem will become bench cover in defence. The only trouble is I will have no bench cover in the mids for the next two weeks. But once Lewis is back, Dahl will move forward giving me a 5 premo forward line.

    Thoughts? Too risky to keep both Lewis and CEY with no bench cover? Cheers.

  • Fyfe or pendls?

  • Hunt/NVB -> Pendlebury and Glenn (played onfield)

    Hunt/Lewis -> Pendlebury and Glenn (on bench)

    Hunt/Lewis -> Pendlebury and Heppell/Mundy

  • Do i bring in Heppell, Ebert or Pendles to my midfield or Dalhaus into my forwards?

    • Pendlebury, top 8 mid for sure and relatively low breakeven..depends on the rest of your team though

    • Aree, Pendles, but who are you trading out in the midfield and forward to get these blokes?

  • HELP PLEASE.

    need trade ideas.

    lumumba, newnes, kk, geary, saad, mcintosh (goodes, brown)
    lewis*, parker, jwood, danger, NVB, krak, cripps, van’berg (yolmen, lambert)
    jacobs, belly (griff, holmes)
    dusty, swan, gray, adams, motlop salem (clark, mcinnes)

    i have 325k in bank.

    • ok trades i did was lewis – I.Smith and goodes – titchel.

      team looks like this:
      lumumba, newnes, kk, geary, saad, mcintosh (salem(E), brown)
      SMITH, parker, jwood, danger, TITCHEL, nvb, cripps, van’berg (yolmen, krak(E))
      jacobs, belly (griff, holmes)
      dusty, swan, gray, adams, motlop, clark (lambert, mcinnes(E))

      i moved titchel in to mids this week via lambert.

      thoughts?

      just means geary/nvb/KK all get an extra week in team

  • I’m having a bit of trouble with trades. So far my trades are Hunt to Fyfe via Rich to the backline and Jack Martin to Glenn via V’Berg going forward. These trades enable me to go Lumumba to Boyd next week. My dilemma is that with these trades i’m being forced to play Clay Smith, Glenn and Saad in the mids. On the bench I have Lewis and CEY (no emergencies). I’ve heard CEY is labelled as more than one week. That means if I stick with these trades I’ll have to play all those guys again next week (also with no emergencies). Sure when they come back I’ll have a strong team, but I’m ever so weak for these next two rounds.

    I NEED HELP, please

  • Anyone getting in T Mitch?

    • Nope too risky

      • Yep and slapped the C on him. He’s playing on the ball this weekend vs melb. He could do easy 150+

        • Yes, but he’s in and out of the team (which is stupid he’s a great player).

          • Ill happily waste 2 trades on his JS for his score and cash generation.

        • Yea Im getting him, looking forward to two big hundreds and then when he is out, he should sometime, trade to lewis

    • yeh i brought him in. see above

  • Reckon it’s risky to field Goodes over geary,newnes or saad ?

    • Hell yes, but the real question is why do you still have him?

      • Because some of us have had more important issues to deal with week in week out! Lewie, don’t field Goodes over those 3

  • team after trades:

    lumumba, newnes, kk, geary, saad, mcintosh (salem(E), brown)
    SMITH, parker, jwood, danger, TITCHEL, nvb, cripps, van’berg (yolmen, krak(E))
    jacobs, belly (griff, holmes)
    dusty, swan, gray, adams, motlop, clark (lambert, mcinnes(E))

    i moved titchel in to mids this week via lambert.

    thoughts?

    just means geary/nvb/KK all get an extra week in team but have 210k in bank for next week.

    reason i am thinking I.Smith is no hodge, no lewis and he scored 118(dogs), 156(port) and 130(north)

    and north are the #1 team in come that doesnt give away 100’s easy.

  • DEF: Newnes, Lumumba, Talia, Oxley, McIntosh, Saad (Clurey, Goodes)
    MID: Bonts, Parker, Vandenberg, Barlow, Pendles, Treloar, Swan, Cripps (Lewis, CEY)
    Rucks: Goldstein, Bellchambers (2×120,000)
    FWD: Franklin, Clark, Salem, Martin, McCarthy, Gray (Krakouer, Tarrant)
    $248,000 left.

    1. Goodes + CEY –> Mundy + Glenn (32K left)
    2. Goodes + McCarthy (Tar to D, Van to F) –> Glenn + Dahlhouse (44K)
    3. McCarthy + CEY –> Glenn + Dahlhouse (173K)
    4. CEY + TBC –> Glenn + Martin/Grundy (200K)
    5. Goodes + TBC (Clark to ruck, Van to F) –> Glenn + Mundy (53K)

    If I don’t get rid of CEY, I will have no Mid cover. Any other ideas are welcome. Thanks!

  • Good To Go?

    D: Hibberd, Newnes, Rich, McIntosh, Oxley, Laird (Saad, Jake Kelly)
    M: Pendles, Ebert (C), Sloane, Parker, Cripps, Hunt, Vandenberg, Glenn (Newton, Krak)
    R: Mumford, Bellchambers (Naismith, Holmes)
    F: Martin, Swan, Gray (VC), Bont, Clark, Tarrant (Salem, McCarthy)

    680k in the bank

    trades:
    CEY –> Glenn
    Lewis –> Ebert

    thoughts on the trades, captain, and bench?

    • You don’t need to get rid of Lewis. It will be hard to get him back. Trade Parker for someone better. Overall, pretty good

      • have 680k in the bank. i’ll get lewis back.

        just deciding whether i should bring in Ebert or Mundy for Lewis. Which of the two is least likely to reach their BE?

        • Get Ebert because you can get Mundy in the backline because of your cash

        • you could get mundy and then next week shift him to DEF and then spend some of that 680k you have on your mids.

          that way you have a good mid this week and a awesome DEF next week along with a strong mid next week.

    • good trades.

      just watch sloane as he might be a late out.

      please comment on mine above

  • Pendles or fyfe and why ?

  • D: Docherty, Newnes, Lumumba, McIntosh, Oxley, Saad (Seedsman, Goodes)
    M: Lewis, Pendles, Sloane, Parker, Selwood, Whitfield, Cripps, Vandenberg (Nelson, CEY)
    R: Naitanui, Bellchambers (O’Brien, Holmes)
    F: Martin, Swan, Franklin, Clark, Honeychurch, Salem (Lambert, McCarthy)

    Trades:

    Lewis – Mundy
    Lambert – Glenn via Vandenberg to FWDs

    Any other suggestions would be great.

    Thanks

  • Still not decided, Kelly -> Mundy locked

    atm looking at Newton -> Glenn, benching CEY and Lewis:

    DEF: Hibbo, Mundy, Newnes, Ox, McInotsh, Saad (Talia, Goodes)
    MID: Ellis, parker, Beams, Risky, NVB, Glenn, Cripps, VDB (Lewis, CEY)
    RUC: Grundy, Belly (spuds)
    FWD: Swan, Dusty, Gray, Bont, Clark, Mccarthy (Salem, Krak)

    leaving $200k to deal with NVB and another next week.

    but not convinced….what to do with CEY and Lewis?

    Thoughts? Cheers

    • What about Newton to Glenn then when CEY plays get him back in. So next week you have some cash to play with

    • Trade CEY out for Glenn (could be out for 2-3 weeks).
      Get him back in for Newton when he returns…

    • By the way, Kelly still has a bit of cash to make… Why not trade Newton to Mundy instead? Then CEY out for Glenn..

      • That’s Testicle Kelly.

        Now im thinking Newton -> Glenn and CEY -> Fyfe, leaving $95k.

        I can get CEY back – Risky will probably max out about the same time, so can do Risky -> CEY. Added bonus of Ablett being back about the same time as well possibly after which I don’t want Risky anymore anyway

        Make sense?

  • Hey guys,

    I have Hodge, Lewis and CEY…

    Thinking I need to trade Hodge… He will go for Heppell.

    Next I’m thinking of holding LEWIS, and getting rid of CEY for Glenn…

    Looking to trade CEY back in for Newton/Nelson/Rich when he returns.

    Thoughts??

  • I.Smith will be my captain this week.

    post scores of 118, 156 and 125. vsing GWS with no lewis/hodge he should get a 150+

    • he could get more attention with them out though. Something to think about.

      • you would think mitchell would be at the head of the list to tag though

    • Worth a punt!! You don’t want to be doing the same as everyone else out there. Otherwise you will never get ahead…. At the same time, if it fails, you will fall behind. Personally, I think it’s a good risk!

    • Very different gws team this year. Given away the least number of 100s of any team.

  • I’m really confused about trades this week, help would be appreciated

    I have cey, Lewis and hodge plus 240k what do I do?

    Def: hodge Simpson, newness, lumumba, oxley, macintosh ( goodes, saad)
    Mid: Lewis Barlow, Parker, treloar, rich, cripps, cey, vanedenberg ( krakeour Nelson )
    Ruck: goldy, belly
    For: Martin, gray, swan, bont, Clark, Salem ( McCarthy, Mcinnes)

    Cheers

    • EXACTLY the same situation as you are in…

      I went:
      Hodge —> Heppell (was also considering Mundy)
      CEY —> Glenn

      Hold Lewis, play Krakeour and Glenn, keep Nelson and Lewis on the bench…
      Nelson won’t make us that much more cash, so you COULD trade him for Glenn then have no bench cover. But that’s a bit risky if another mid gets injured/suspended/dropped next week…

      Look to get CEY back in for RICH/NELSON when he returns (could be 2-3 weeks)

    • DO the following:
      Advanced trade: Hodge out, Salem DPP- def, Vandanberg DPP-fwd, Heppell- IN
      Allows you to play SAAD across your backline with Salem on the bench…

      • Cheers guys @graham. I think I’d rather keep hodge for the week rather than Lewis because I’d rather play saad than krakeour, thoughts?

        • Personally I disagree…. Hodge is out for 3 weeks. And then has rnd 11 bye shortly after his return. I’m getting him out and then he becomes a priority trade rnd 12.
          Either Hold lewis and trade Hodge. Or trade them both.

        • I don’t think there is anything wrong with that.

          Im holding hodge for one week as well, simply because I have enough cash to get any premo in this week anyway and I dont want to miss Glenn.

          May get rid of Hodge next week, however its only 2 weeks then and a hold is more viable.

  • EXACTLY the same situation as you are in…

    I went:
    Hodge —> Heppell (was also considering Mundy)
    CEY —> Glenn

    Hold Lewis, play Krakeour and Glenn, keep Nelson and Lewis on the bench…

    • nice trades. glenn will make you money while yolmen is out.

      please comment on mine above

  • Which two out of 3 rookies to play out of Glenn, Talia and Saad. If I don’t play Talia I won’t have a mid bench.

  • Play Talia and Saad… Mid bench is important!

    • you’d play saad over glenn? I feel like glenn will do better but thanks for recommending I go with a bench

      • There are 8 mids= greater chance of one of them being a late out… Feel like bench cover is important.
        Saad and Glenn is 50/50… But Saad for me is a safer option as he has proved he’s relatively consistent, and had a good game last weekend

  • Was planning on going Newton -> Glenn & T.Hunt -> Mundy and holding CEY & Lewis…is that to risky?

    2 weeks with no subs, anyone else going the short term pain long term gain point of view?

  • Here’s my team.

    DEF: Newnes,Hunt,Lumumba,Oxley,Saad,Mcintosh (Andrews,Hamling)
    MID Heppell,Shiel,Beams, Lewis, Parker,Cripps,Vandeberg,CEY (Krakouer,C.Smith)
    RUCK: Maric,Bellchambers (Griffin,Cox)
    FWD: Gray,Swan,Franklin,D.Martin,Tex,Mccarthy (Salem,Clark)
    Bank: 181K

    Thinking of getting rid of Lumumba/Hunt – Mundy and maybe CEY – Cowan.

    Other possible trades are
    CEY – Cowan
    C.Smith – K.Jack
    Thinking of putting Lewis on the bench for two weeks
    Suggestion appreciated.

  • What sort of role does Glenn play the SUNS? Inside or outside mid?

  • 1) Lewis to Shiel and lumumba to Mundy

    2) Lewis to Ebert and Simpson to Mundy?

  • DEF: Hibberd, Newnes, Lumumba, McInthosh, Oxley, Saad (Talia, Schade)
    MID: Lewis, Heppell, Hodge, Barlow, Parker, CEY, Cripps, Vandenberg (Newton, Krak)
    RUCK: Jacobs, Belly (Downie, O’Brien)
    FWD: Swan, Gray, Martin, Bont, Salem, McCarthy (Clark, McIness)

    338k left

    Was thinking Hodge to Mundy and CEY to Pendles/Fyfe. Thoughts anyone?

  • Pendles or Heppell?
