  • Round 18 Scores: 2251
    Studs: Hodge, SHAW!!!, Colqhoun, Heppell, Rocky, Stef, gray, Dahl, Bartel, Lynch
    Duds: Roberton, Smith, Beams, Jacobs, Zaharakis
    On the Chopping Block: Beams and Smith/Zaha
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Who’d have thought that Robinson+Malceski was the right call over Kelly+Zaha? I might have to bring Robinson in for Beams this week if he takes his role.

  • Team Name: auxDT
    Round 18 Scores: 2339
    Studs: Selwood, Treloar, Rocky, Higgins, Dahl, Gray, Titch, Swan
    Duds: Steele (sub!), B.Smith, Sauce
    On the Chopping Block: Steele
    Overall Bye Ranking Change: 299
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Steele as starting sub, M.Boyd subbed out, and B.Smith just being B.Smith. But happy with my score overall.

  • Round 18 Scores: 2259
    Studs: shaw ,McVeigh, Hannebery, rocky, zeiball ,Gray ,swan
    Duds: franklin ,Jacobs , Eski
    On the Chopping Block: franklin, on field rookies

    Shaw, McVeigh, Hibbard, Mackie, Malceski, B Smith (Colquhoun, Bryne)

    Hannebery, Lewis, Fyfe, JP Kennedy, Priddis, Rockliff, Bontompelli, Neal bullen (Amon, knight )

    Jacobs, Gawn (Cordy, O’brien)

    Swan, Gray, Zeibell, Franklin, Gunston, Lambert (Membrey, McGuane)

    Vent/Brag/Whatever:
    Have $251 cash

    Thinking Amon (can’t see getting another game) -> J Selwood and cordy -> 120 k ruckman leaving 60k cash… Neal bullen onto the bench

    Any other tips? Gotta bit of money sitting on my bench on players that won’t play for the rest of the season is it worth risking downgrading them too 120 k players just for the cash when you know you have 2 premos in that position (Ruck) that you could side trade if injurys occur??

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Pretty disappointed with the round tbh. what do you guys think of Steele >> Selwood and Beams >> Hanners?

  • How long will downie be out for????

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: best result for me this season!

  • When posting scores please specify nab/sc or rdt. OR does everyone here only play RDT.

  • Get rid of Steele or Boston for Jelwood?

    • yes Jelwood is the man for next few weeks not sure how SJ out will affect him though

    • sorry not sure on boston but Steele b/e is over his avg and the vest scares me

  • After Gaz going down last week I decided to do a YOLO captain and unbelievably picked Lachie with the C for my greatest captain pick ever (Situation not scoring wise).

  • Round 18 Scores:2252
    Studs:Hodge, Mundy, Shaw!, Boak, Parker, Rocky, Lids, Goldy, Swan, Bartel, Gray
    Duds:Newnes, B Smith, Armo
    On the Chopping Block:Smith, Caleb Daniel
    Overall Bye Ranking Change:THey still haven’t fixed this??…Went up 488 spots this week into 3792nd
    Vent/Brag/Whatever:ANother decent round and after this week I’ll have have one on field rookie, Lambert who is capable of a good score anyway.

    Duds: Sidey (harsh but expected more) and Gibson
    On the Chopping Block: None

  • Name: First Time Lucky
    Score: 2264
    Studs: McVeigh, Hanners, Titch, Rocky
    Duds: Coaches…

    I had 6 outs (included Steele) so carried 2 doughnuts…. Very happy with this score!

    Ranked dropped to 359, so still hoping to finish my first fantasy season in the top 500

    Cutting it fine though!

    Studs: McVeigh, Jelwood, Titch, Rocky, Swan, Stef, Ziebell, Gray, Dahl
    Duds: Laird, Malceski, Knight
    Rank Change: +1440 (4207)
    Vent/Brag: It’s a good feeling being a Fantasy Coach when your lowest pointing mid is Pendles 93. Need to wait one more week to dpp upgrade knight to sloane.

  • Team Name: MLG Bluntsquad 420
    Round 18 Scores: 2200
    Studs: Higgins, Hibberd, Selwood, Rockliff, Boak, Gray, Parker, Swan
    Duds: Steele (I deserved this), Griffen, Yeo, Boyd, Malceski
    On the Chopping Block: Steele, Colquhoun (cash in to upgrade steele)
    Overall Ranking Change: 8284 (Up 534)
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: When I had to field Steele after swapping Lambert to cover Fyfe in the midfield, I pretty much accepted a donut. I might as well have got a donut, because he did bugger all. Yeo, the bane of my existence, will always fire when nobody else does then drag me down when everyone fires. Upgrading Steele to Bartel.
    Entire field is pretty much premos. Will probably spend the next few weeks upgrading Malceski, Kreuzer and Griffen if he doesn’t start getting consistent 85+ scores.
    Goldstein as captain was a solid move. Reliable 100 with a chance of 130+.

  • Round 18 Scores: 2373 0nly 500 more than last week!!
    Studs: Neale, McVeigh, Higgens, Rocky, Titchel
    Duds: Beams, Buddy, Yeo
    On the Chopping Block: Beams, Buddy, Mckernan
    Overall Bye Ranking Change: +2351
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Not sure whether to cut Buddy or not, would hate to lose a final to someone who has him if he goes big.

  • Team Name: NoSkillRequired
    Round 18 Scores: 2476
    Studs:Hannebery, Selwood, Mcveigh, Martin and Mitchell
    Duds: Not really any. Docherty at worst.
    On the Chopping Block:Docherty
    Overall Bye Ranking Change:5000 into the 3000s
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Finished the round ranked 12th in Aus. Wasn’t expecting that…

  • Round 18 Scores: 2315
    Studs: Hodge, Mundy, Rocky, Steven, Lewis, Priddis (C), Parker, Neale, Stef, Gray, Swan, Bartel, Titch
    Duds: Boyd, Yeo, Griffen, Smith, Sidey (5 point last quarter), Jacobs.
    On the Chopping Block: Hamling to bareass/Amon to any named 120k mid or forward.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: The low end of my team is still too unreliable, Jacobs would be climbing my trade out list if my backline wasn’t an embarrassment.

  • Team Name: McDonald’s Men
    Round 18 Scores:2,258
    Studs:Shaw!! Lambert,Titch, Rocky, Dahlhaus, San
    Duds: Steele, Armi, Boyd, Newnes (pretty average score)
    On the Chopping Block: Jack Steele
    Overall Ranking Change:Up 1103 to 7563
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Didn’t even think i had a good round but Heath Shaw’s fourth quarter heroics saved my week and won me my matchups, happy to continue to rise up the rankings after an average start to the year and although 7563 isn’t the ranking i want, its still an alright rank for my first year playing fantasy
    Glad to see Titch put out a massive score after copping the vest last week

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: read above am happy to be in top 1,000 first time this year (I think) teams all done except the Kolojashni thing but happy across the board is funny game but my scores went last 3 rounds 2,371 / 1966 / 2427 but admittedly that middle round I still went up 28 places so must been bad week allround
