  • gawn harwood and barlow. Obviously only one will feel the rage unfortunately, thinking harwood.

  • Yes on Harwood have done same I grabbed Adams while still low b/e. Any guy who can get 16 can go I don’t care if he gets 116 next week. As to Barlow IMO hold for now b/e is 116 predicted is 90 if he can manage that drops 12k. Now Lyon ( I’m a lying) said he would play mid after NAB and he did not he played forward, but guess what Freo lost both games. It maybe fingers crossed at my end but you would think something has to change and am hoping Barlow to play mid is it. – THOUGHTS?

    • That is an exuberant theory my friend.

    • Agreed, you would think Lyon would try something being 0-2 and heading into a derby.0-3 and losing against WCE isnt ideal.

    • They were losing soundly to the Suns the other night and Lyon never even thought to chuck him in the mids once. That’s telling I reckon…

  • Would hold Gawn none of other rucks going apeshit ATM and expect godly and Martin to drop further. Don’t know gawns b/e but can’t be too high. Silly me started godly/ Martin lol at me

    • Gawn has a BE of 116

    • gawns issue is he is facing goldy, and losing value rapidly, but with my team as it is, he is actually my 4th concern, as I have Rocky. But Rocky isnt a rage trade. Just a trade if not playing.

      • Very true. Most of the premo rucks have high BE’s right now. Naitanui is probably the best at 84 right now.

  • Looking for suitable replacements for Harwood and rocky

    • Largely depends on who else you have and if you have much cash in the bank at the moment.

      But, Marcus Adams for a cash generating rookie for Hardwood and for Rocky’s replacement, if you have cash, someone like T. Mitchel or Lewis. Other wise, maybe hunter for value, or even Taylor Adams.

    • I’m thinking wines and Adams thoughts?

      • Wines has considerable upside: playing Essendon this week, lowish BE of 75 and in just over 5% of teams. Worth a shot.

        • wines has scored well without being great, I would say low risk at this point.

      • ive had wines since the start, had him in a previous fantasy team too, a hard nut who always wants the ball, rarely drops below 85-90ish, id back him in.
        At the start – i was deciding between getting him or Gibbs..

    • Adams and the guy no one is talking about? Why? Zac Merrett

    • lachie hunter for rocky and m.adams for hardwood

  • My team is
    Def shaw, Sheridan, laird, Mitch brown, Harwood, tippa, Dea, broad

    Mid danger, Adams, rocky, mills, hanners, Fyfe, Barlow, B crouch, hewett, davis

    Ruck lobb, Martin, Currie, frost

    Fwd Martin, wells, kerridge, B Kennedy, hall, menadue, McCarthy, mcgovern

    Not much in the bank 16K

    • I agree with what Loki said RE: Wines. But, make sure if you trade Wines in, you’re happy to commit to him for the season. You’ve got quite a few DEF and FWD players that you will need to upgrade as the season progresses. So you don’t want to be sideways trading premo mids in a few rounds.

  • No rage trade just common sense trades plus bonus pocketing a few dollars
    Barlow > Adams
    Rocky > Tichell

  • okay DT talk community here is my team without any trades competed
    score for round 2 was 1942 which now puts me in top 2000

    please some help on how to use these 2 trades would be great

    DEF: Rich,Johannisen,Sheridan,Lonergan,dea,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 these trades it would be greatly appreciated

    14k in bank

  • alright guys, im getting rid of rocky for sam mitchell becasue he is a machine. Just not sure about barlow?

    Franklin?
    Merret?
    SUckling?
    Downgrade to kennedy?
    Stringer?
    West Coast Kennedy?

    • I’d be considering tom ahead of Sam. Sam has been sitting out the end of games and is a high risk of being rested.

      JJK will burn you done weeks, all key fwds will have off weeks.

  • Would it be silly to get both Zahrakis and Hunter and have 120k in the bank ??
    Trades would be, Rocky-Hunter and Barlow-Zaharakis via Menadue DPP

    • if you genuinly think they can keep it up it’s fine, however i’m against trading 2 premos for more mid priced players

      • Cheers for that, I do agree and normally am against it but with such low B/E and making easy cash they both can become a stepping stone to a premium in a few weeks time when they have maxed out in value.

    • go for it. both players will earn you money and even though they aren’t considered ‘premiums’ you will have a less vanilla team and heaps of money in the bank.

      • Cheers, Pretty keen on the trades will just wait for teams to be named

  • I don’t have enough for T.Mitchell, but who should I get for Rockliff? Sma Mitchell, Luke Parker or Robbie Gray?

  • Kent to b Kennedy
    Rocky to zaha

    Yeah or nah

  • Rocky to zaharakis? What’s the thoughts? Or robbie Gray?

  • Rockliff to zaharakis or robbie Gray?

  • Thoughts on
    Rocky > z.merret
    Barlow > hall

  • Ha! Tickle calvins little pink!

  • Rocky for zaha and Bartel for jj? Luxury trades because I don’t really have anything else to do because my rooms are still making a heap of money. Zaha for a full break out this season?

  • You lads saying no to Parish, lol he is straight in my basket.

    Hell be 450k in 5 weeks and will avg 90+

    thanks

  • Rocky to Fyfe or zaha?

    • Fyfe because he will average more over the distance. Zaha has started very well, but there is still the speculative about him. The season could make him, but there is risk.

  • Regarding the rucks lads, you gotta think that the new rules must be affecting their scores. There are less stoppages because of them, meaning the tucks are involved less. I’m not sure that we can expect much more from them. I recon the DPP rucks like Blicavs etc are going to be top scorers. Hot tip.

    • Less stoppages? Do you have any stats to back up that suggestion? If I cast my mind all the way back to R1 there were guys getting 50+ hitouts.

      • http://www.afl.com.au/stats

        So far this year HOs are down 4 per team on what they were last year. Also a decrease in the number of stoppages won per team on average.

        • I have IE8 on my computey and that page won’t load… so I’ll take your word for it.

          So what’s the theory? Ditch expensive rucks and write the positions off as necessary evils?

          Actually, there it is… 38.8 ave per team down from 42.8 last year. Wonder if 3rd man up accounts for a greater or lesser percentage now too? Interesting stuff!

  • I agree. When the BE come down a bit then I think Blicavs, Goldy and Smartin will be worth picking up at a more reasonable prices.

  • Which is the better trade?

    Duncan > Parish
    Rocky > Titch

    Or

    Rocky > Hall
    Duncan > Hunter/Zaharakis

    • I like your second trade, Hall has a fantasy friendly position with GCS at the moment and Hunter’s benefiting from the end of vests (I don’t know enough about Zaha to judge him but he does have form). I love Titch (started with him myself) but I’m not that interested in Parish (solely because he’s a rookie).
      Both trades look good though and you should be fine either way.

  • RDT
    keeping rocky even if he misses a couple…
    Barlow to hunter or zaha via dpp
    Steele to lambert or j.martin

    Or i can afford zaha and s.gray ?

  • okay DT talk community here is my team without any trades competed
    score for round 2 was 1942 which now puts me in top 2000
    I am thinking going rocky to hunter and then donā€™t know if I should trade out Sheridan or barlow
    please some help on how to use these 2 trades would be great

    DEF: Rich,Johannisen,Sheridan,Lonergan,dea,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)

  • I can afford to bring in a Mitchell, which one do you reckon? The 20K I save with Sammy might come in handy, but Titchel could go OTT this year.

    Hold Rocky and swap Harwood & Macaffer for better cash cows?

    Or leave those two on the bench hoping they’ll turnaround, and swap Rocky & Gawn for better options?

    $86K in the bank…

    • Keep Gawn, he will go ok for the year. Rocky and Harwood would getbthe boot if my team, probably to Parish and Johannisen, maybe even Kelly from Ess as the numbers suggest?

  • Will r gray gain fwd status?
