  • Repost from Team announce, put to wrong article…

    Couple of corrective trades after week 1, and have cash with Robbo to trade out.
    Would you prefer

    A) Ross + Wells
    or
    B) Grey + Kennedy

    Leaning towards A0, due to uniqueness of Ross.

    Thanks for response!

  • JTUE2TP7 need one more player in my AFL Fantasy league

  • Sunday Extended Benches with be named at about ~5pm today.

    Updated lists and notes on my post AFL teams 2016:Round 2

    teams/

  • thoughts on who to start out of Harwood, Adams or tippa? Im sure a similar question has been asked in the previous 1,684 comments, but I cant see them.

    • I start hawrood and adams but harwood if just one

    • I don’t think you can start Tippa based off last week’s performance. I’d probably say Adams just, because I feel the Dogs game style (especially at Etihad) is more conducive to cheap marks and kicks in the backline than the the Lions. Harwood does have some decent history tho. Probably much of a muchness between those two.

      • cheers to both for response, yeah, I do actually need to start 2, I think you both confirmed my thinking.

  • Def: Shaw, Houli, Lonergan, Dea, Harwood, Adams ( Tippa,Cameron )
    Mid: Gaz, Rocky, Danger, Hanners, Hunter, MCrouch, Mills, Hewett ( Davis,Menadue )
    Ruck: Martin, Gawn ( Currie,Cox )
    Fwd: Martin, Barlow, Hall, Wells, Kerridge, BenKen ( McCarthy, McGovern )

    Feedback would be great. I have 62k to spend

  • okay DT talk community here is my team going into round 2 but I still have 1 trade left and 257k left in the bank
    I have already had different types of feedback but still cant get my head around this last trade
    please one last bit of advice on what to use this last trade on would be great
    thanks

    DEF: Rich,Sheridan,Lonergan,dea harwood adams (tippa,adams)

    MID: Titch,Hanners,ablett,rockliff,adams,crouch,mills,menadue(hewett,davis)

    RCK: Stef,Gawn(currie,cox)

    FWD: Barlow,Hall,Gray,Kerridge,Wells,bennedy(ellis,McCarthy)

    please help me on this last trade it would be greatly appreciated

  • Dougal Howard (FWD AF $125,000 RDT $128,200) just came up as another downgrade rookie option.

    • Howard could be a decent bench option, Schulz is out with a back complaint, backs are funny things. And if he gets a few games, Im sure he may get time in the ruck. Yes, speculating alot there I know.

  • should I field J Dunkley or C Menadue in the midfield?

  • Really stuck on trades, any thoughts appreciated

    Def: Shaw Laird Bartel Harwood Dea Adams (Tipa Cameron)
    Mid: Steven Danger Ablett Rocky Hunter Oliver Mills Macaffer (Hewett Davis)
    Ruc: Stef Sauce
    Fwd: Dusty Barlow Gray Kerridge Wells Menadue (Gault Mccarthy)

  • Blacksmiths over at GWS have DROPPED some Steele this week

  • Full sunday extended benches are in . yes yes, Howe made the team.

  • just a quick question here guys
    which trade?
    1) mcgovern> papley (not sold on papleys JS)
    2) Tippa> adams ( adams will be D6)
    3) tippa> byrne (c.cameron will be D6)
    4) Harwood > weitering

    cheers

    • Tippa to Adams cause Adams looked really good

    • Its a tough call. Definitely not (3). (4) is tempting as Weitering did impress in the second half last week. But I would go (1) as the Swans have an easier draw than Crows and Papleys JS would be equal with McGoverns JS

  • I’ve gone Robinson > S.Gray, but now I’m not sure what to do?:
    Simpkin > Papley (money maker, but not sure about Papleys JS)
    OR
    Simpkin > Ben Kennedy (costs me money but Kennedy has potential to go big?)
    OR
    Simpkin > Dunkley (Which puts Menadue in fwd line, Simpkin > Dunkley in mids then Hewett on ground at m8 and Dunkley on bench)

    • defintiely get ben kennedy, will make money and score good while doing it can you please help me above cheers

    • Kennedy is worth the extra cash. Papley and Dunkley have shaky JS and kennedy plays essendon which is handy

  • For my second trade.

    1) Harwood > Weitering + $25k
    OR
    2) Gresham > Hewett + $102k

  • field mccarthy or tippa? cheers

  • So I have three outs in the forward line this week – Robbo, Steele and Simpkin.
    Robbo to Gray is locked in. What do people think out of these two options?

    1. Steele to De Goey
    2. Simpkin to Kennedy

    • De Goey should see more midfield time with Sidebottom out over the next few weeks and Swan not playing. I would personally do that.
      But i am contemplating bringing in Kennedy for Simpkin myself – just don’t have Steele to worry about

    • Do u have any thoughts of what i should do? My post is above.

  • DEF: Shaw, Lonergan, Sheridan, MAdams, Harwood, Dea (Tippa, Hartley)
    MID: Hanners, Ablett, Rocky, TAdams, Hunter, MCrouch, Menadure, Mills (Davis, Hewett)
    RUCK: Martin, Gawn (Cox, Curie)
    FWD: Barlow, SGray, Martin, Hall, Wells, Kerridge (McCarthy, Kommer)

    I actually have no idea what changes to make. I am really happy with my team despite missing a couple of key rookies (can’t have them all). Anything stand out to you all? Thanks!

    • Gun team mate. I’d try to get Harwood up to Wilson/Howe/Aish. You could do that by downgrading Mills to Dunkley. Or you could try a cash grab with a premo with a high breakeven, eg Stefan Martin to Naitanui and then in a few weeks go back up to Stef. Could make you 100k and helps you to upgrade Harwood to a midpricer

  • Which two would you field in the mids out of Mills, Hewett, Menadue, Dunkley?

  • How does this sound??? McGovern for Sheridan and Gresham for Papley… don’t like trading this early but both are bad decisions … thoughts..

  • should I keep Brandon ellis or trade for parker?

  • Does anyone else have yellow lights on there gold coast and fremantle players???

  • You dont think its going to stuff anything up?

    • who knows.

      Doubt they will take any responsibility for it if it does.

  • anyone rate adams as captain

    • no

      • sorry computer froze.

        no i dont think he is. think treloar inclusion in the pies is cutting into his scoring.

        • 1) Adams played pure mid last week, Treloar had no effect on his role and it is way too early to say that it will have an impact on his scoring.

          2) With Swan and Sidebottom both out, I believe it negates any perceived effect anyway.

  • who to field as M8 out of:

    menadue, mills, davis

    ?

  • Start Mills or Hewett?

  • Anyone know much about Darcy Parish? Haven’t seen his name mentioned here, but he has a great BE and is named on the ball this week. Worth a gamble in AF maybe?

    • RDT jump on.
      AF probably a bit too pricy now at almost 300k. Better off getting Hewett or someone around his price imo.

  • Full notes for Sunday teams Are in. Check them HERE.

    • Nice work Shags.

      Just wondering what you are doing in RDT in regards to the Robinson/Sidey debacle.

      • Keeping. Robbo hopefully just 1 week, and sidebum too good to trade for only 2 weeks.

        trades are like gold in RDT. Dont waste them.

        • Yeah I’m doing the same in holding Sidey.

          Steele is gone to BenKen though as I don’t want a fringe guy sitting on the bench for who knows how many weeks.

  • Crouch to hall for some extra points? or not worry and improve bench?

  • Field Hewett or Menadue at M8?

    • In all honesty toss a coin. Either way you are 50% chance of picking the wrong/right one.

      I prefer Menadue on the field though…………………………. just.

  • Neale,Rocky or Hunter captain

  • pretty new to this, please be nice!

    I have to trade mitch robinson, I have zero cash! do I go SGray, or Viney or Johannisen?

    one luxury trade, do I get rid or Macaffer for Hewitt or Tippa for Bryne?

    • Robinson > Gray and Macaffer > Hewett.

    • Byrne isnt named, Caff to Hewitt for cash generation. Robbo to either Gray or Viney is fine IMO, depends on which rookie you put on field in fwd vs on field in mid as well.

      • good to know! makes the decision easier.’

        I was also thinking Zorko as a POD with Robbo out?

        rookies, I need to pick two of Mills Hewitt Davis and Menadue. Im leaning towards mills and Menadue, just because i don’t want to have to wait til sunday for both Hewitt and mills

        • I mentioned Zorko as Shags Pick as an alternative to Hall/S.Gray (an for those who already have the two).

          Lambert is another possible sneaky POD.

          Both are a tad risky, but as you know risk/reward.

  • okay DT talk community here is my team going into round 2 but I still have 1 trade left and 257k left in the bank
    I have already had different types of feedback but still cant get my head around this last trade
    please one last bit of advice on what to use this last trade on would be great
    thanks

    DEF: Rich,Sheridan,Lonergan,dea harwood adams (tippa,adams)

    MID: Titch,Hanners,ablett,rockliff,adams,crouch,mills,menadue(hewett,davis)

    RCK: Stef,Gawn(currie,cox)

    FWD: Barlow,Hall,Gray,Kerridge,Wells,bennedy(ellis,McCarthy)

    please help me on this last trade it would be greatly appreciated!

    • 257k is heaps. Do an upgrade somewhere.

      Harwood 201,000 + 257,000 = 476,000
      You could grab Jason Johannisen

      Matt Crouch 399,000 + 257,000 = 656,000
      You could grab Dangerfield, Lewis, Sitchel, Parker, Priddis

      you are in a very luxurious position. Hell, even just using 1 trade is an option here.

      • yeah its hard work hahaha
        what one do you think?
        I have Sheridan so its either
        harwood-johannisen
        matt crouch-premo

        • lol just deleted the Sheridan before you commented.

          Matt Crouch could have potential to go well, but why not just grab a set and forget premium.

          • so are you leaning towards crouch out to premo and keep harwood?

          • I actually think JJ might be a better option. THe only issue is JJ isnt as sure a bet as say Dangerfield.

            Risk/Reward

  • thoughts on simpkin to aish?

    • don’t do it
      we need to see more of aish
      try and get bennedy instead

  • think I might go harwood out for jj instead of matt crouch out for premo

    been a long hard week haahha
    heaps of thanks to shags for his help
