Jeppa’s Juniors – Round 6

A few of our rooks turned sour grapes in Round 6 and I’ve never been the patient type. Who you can offload will typically depend on your DPP links so I hope you’ve got some handy.

Cheap premos are a natural attraction. Rocky is the obvious choice while Vince is now a guaranteed top 6 defender in Fantasy. Always trade based on need!

FYI my AFL Fantasy trades this week are Laird to Boyd and Dea to Vince (the double downgrade last week was timely!). In Dreamteam, I’m benching Laird and going Parish to Smith and Dea to Houli. Rocky will have to wait.

Three-Or-More Gamers

Screen Shot 2016-05-04 at 12.39.37 AMKEEPERS

Mitch Brown (Def/Fwd. $288,000, 14 be AF. $275,800, -6 be DT) got the better of the Carlton defenders last Sunday scoring an impressive 96 Fantasy points from 12 kicks, 4 handballs, 8 marks, 3 tackles and 2 goals. Having Grimley in the team (along with Daniher) has allowed him to push well up the ground and win more of the footy. Hallelujah! We’re obviously keeping Brown and against the short defence of Sydney this week consider starting him on your field…I am!

It was another on field master class from Daniel Wells (Fwd/Mid. $408,000, 60 be AF. $378,500, 51 be DT) 98 and Sam Kerridge (Fwd/Mid. $413,000, 55 be AF. $380,100, 20 be DT) 91 in Round 6. Not much to say except hold.

Expensive juniors Blake Acres (Mid. $300,000, 0 be AF. $319,800, 12 be DT) and Daniel Menzel (Fwd. $359,000, 6 be AF. $348,600, -14 be DT) went BIG!!! Acres played the best game of his short career amassing 28 possessions (team high), 7 marks, 5 tackles, 2 tackles and 126 Fantasy points against the Dees. Menzel bullied the Suns on his way to scoring 122! Naturally, these sorts of scores aren’t sustainable but the short-term cash influx from Acres and Menzel will please their owners.

Lesser likes Corey Ellis (Fwd/Mid. $254,000, 20 be AF. $270,900, 39 be DT) 83, Ryan Crowley (Mid. $273,000, 23 be AF. Mid. $320,600, 45 be DT) 79, Andrew Phillips (Ruc/Fwd. $243,000, 18 be AF. $265,100, 26 be DT) 78, Jed Lamb (Fwd. $243,000, 19 be AF. $258,800, 23 be DT) 73 round out the keepers this week. You wouldn’t look to trade these guys in now.

DON’T PANIC

Ciaran Byrne (Def. $229,000, 6 be AF. $228,700, 2 be DT) started on fire against Essendon with 10 touches and 32 Fantasy points to quarter time but unfortunately he couldn’t go on with it finishing with just 63 Fantasy points. It’s clear that the young Irishman is building confidence so don’t trade him just yet, in fact start him on your field this week because the Blues play the cold Pies.

Other ‘juniors’ that are still steadily going up in value include Ben Kennedy (Fwd/Mid. $319,000, 57 be AF. $323,300, 64 be DT) 68, Darcy Byrne-Jones (Def. $251,000, -3 be AF. $254,900, -6 be DT) 66, Nakia Cockatoo (Fwd. $242,000, 19 be AF. $259,300, 35 be DT) 64, Tom Papley (Fwd. $279,000, 27 be AF. $262,100, -21 be DT) 61, Callum Mills (Def/Mid. $313,000, 39 be AF. Mid. $324,900, 41 be DT) 60, George Hewett (Mid/Fwd. $259,000, 32 be AF. Mid. $231,700, -4 be DT) 58, Lachie Weller (Mid. $267,000, 25 be AF. $299,400, 36 be DT) 58, Josh Wagner (Def. $249,000, 0 be AF. $256,300, 3 be DT) 57, Michael Hartley (Def. $231,000, 23 be AF. $217,700, 1 be DT) 56, Mitch McGovern (Fwd. $264,000, 31 be AF. $269,900, 34 be DT) 55, Liam Sumner (Mid/Fwd. $176,000, 4 be AF. $163,400, -9 be DT) 54, Hayden Crozier (Fwd. $249,000, 30 be AF. $256,800, 20 be DT) 53, Dean Kent (Fwd. $306,000, 25 be AF. $348,100, 49 be DT) 43, Ryan Harwood (Def. $239,000, 29 be AF. $276,700, 52 be DT) 42, Lincoln McCarthy (Fwd. $248,000, 32 be AF. $249,100, 34 be DT) 37 and Jayden Hunt (Fwd. $164,000, 15 be AF. $153,900, 10 be DT) 29. Hold them if you own them.

TRADE, TRADE, TRADE

It’s time to offload your fattened cashcows and the priority trade list looks like this:

  1. Jacob Weitering *injured (Def. $290,000, 77 be AF. $285,800, 91 be DT) 28.
  2. Connor Menadue (Fwd/Mid. $245,000, 56 be AF. $246,300, 53 be DT) 50.
  3. Matt Dea (Def. $300,000, 64 be AF. $299,400, 81 be DT) 38.
  4. Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti (Def/Fwd. $290,000, 48 be AF. $284,300, 52 be DT) 41.
  5. Darcy Parish (Mid. $359,000, 84 be AF. $331,100, 65 be DT) 47.

Marcus Adams (Def/Fwd. $330,000, 68 be AF. $310,400, 64 be DT) 53, Eric MacKenzie (Def. $281,000, 59 be AF. $281,700, 66 be DT) 51, Clay Cameron (Def/Fwd. $266,000, 49 be AF. Def. $259,700, 44 be DT) 47, James Sicily (Fwd. $294,000, 63 be AF. $295,300, 25 be DT) 41, Ryan Davis (Fwd/Mid. $219,000, 37 be AF. Mid. $205,700, 42 be DT) 42 and Sam Frost (Ruc/Fwd. $202,000, 24 be AF. $217,900, 8 be DT) 29 are a few more that you could trade without reservation.

Please note that if I haven’t mentioned a rookie priced player above, it means they’re not relevant. Remember rooks are classified as players under $250,000 in Fantasy and/or Dreamteam.

Two Gamers

Screen Shot 2016-05-04 at 12.14.06 AMA four quarter effort and 97 Fantasy points from Josh Smith (Mid. $203,000, -39 be AF. $105,800, -127 be DT) saw him top the charts for the two gamers in Round 6. I was at the game on Sunday and watching him with a keen eye I noticed his huge work rate. Gut running on the vast spaces of Domain Stadium saw Smith win 29 possessions but his kicking needs work. As Fantasy/Dreamteam coaches, we want accumulators and he definitely ticks that box. He was named in the bests for the Pies too so you’d think his job security would be safe in the short term. Smith has to be your number one downgrade target in Dreamteam this week and Fantasy too if no other cheapies are named. Playing Carlton at the G on Saturday, you might as well start him on your field!

After all these years, we finally got a glimpse of Daniel Currie’s (Ruc. $165,000, 18 be AF. $128,200, -56 be DT) potential. He won the battle against Zac Smith last Saturday night and gathered 9 possessions, 5 marks, 34 hitouts, 4 tackles and 83 Fantasy points in the process. He’s most people’s R3/R4 so sit back and enjoy the earnings. Same goes for Mason Cox (Ruc/Fwd. $171,000, -12 be AF. $121,300, -60 be DT) who was surprisingly competitive against West Coast scoring 62. Sam Grimley (Ruc/Fwd. $241,000, 40 be AF. $121,300, -33 be DT) was the worst of the rucks registering just 29 Fantasy points.

Jonathan Simpkin (Fwd/Mid. $243,000, 21 be AF. $275,200, 30 be DT) has improved his fitness and it’s translated through to Fantasy. Playing a pure midfield role, Simpkin amassed 25 possessions, 4 marks, 2 tackles and 74 Fantasy points in an encouraging performance against the Blues. Question is, would we bother trading in Simpkin now with an energetic and cheaper Josh Smith and Ben Keays available? Probably not. If he was $100,000 cheaper, it would be a different story.

Seesawing scoring from Peter Wright (Fwd. $198,000, 10 be AF. $193,200, -19 be DT) will have his owners frustrated. The big fella had an inspiring 98 Fantasy points in Round 5 but could manage just 22 last weekend. That’s a good example of why we avoid young key forwards! With Lobbe sustaining an injury in the SANFL, Dougal Howard (Fwd. $152,000, 2 be AF. $128,200, -24 be DT) is in the box seat for more senior opportunities. The second year rookie only managed 50 Fantasy points playing both in the ruck and up forward against a pretty average side in the Tigers. Howard could appeal to coaches looking for someone cheap but don’t expect more than 60 Fantasy points per game. Like Wright, I’d avoid Howard because we just can’t carry inconsistent scorers at this stage of the season.

Darcy Tucker (Def. $184,000, 14 be AF. $121,300, -35 DT) was a big disappointment. I was expecting so much more than 13 possessions and 43 Fantasy points from the confident and slightly cocky defender. There were so many instances where Tucker was around the ball, in the right spot but a possession just didn’t eventuate. The concern now is if Tucker holds his spot with Clancee, Ibbo and Suban all firing in the WAFL. Tucker’s teammate Brady Grey (Mid. $271,000, 27 be AF. $226,100, -14 be DT) was a little better with 63 Fantasy points but I can’t justify the extra spend.

Avoid Liam Jones (Fwd. $229,000, 42 be AF. $246,700, 47 be DT) 43 and Bailey Dale (Fwd/Mid. $195,000, 34 be AF. $193,000, 24 be DT) 26 at all costs.

One Gamers

Ben Keays (Mid. $188,000, 13 be AF. $121,300 DT) didn’t hold back in his first game of AFL footy. Playing predominately at half forward, the Lions Academy product embraced wet weather footy laying 8 tackles to go with 11 possessions, 1 goal and 64 Fantasy points. Keays did enough to hold his spot and with another encouraging performance against Port who leak a lot of Fantasy points, the future appears bright. He’s the next best trade down option behind Smith.

On debut, Christian Petracca (Fwd/Mid. $242,000, 36 be AF. $128,200 DT) appeared to struggle with the pace of AFL footy but he was still serviceable for the Dees. Improvement is inevitable and to have 16 possessions (3 goal assists), 1 mark, 5 tackles and 58 Fantasy points with little help from teammates is a decent first up effort. There’s no doubting Petracca’s talent but money is precious in AFL Fantasy and even though he’ll average 70+ I’m opting to chase the cheapies instead. He’s a lock for Dreamteam though and he should tear up the Suns this weekend.

Limited game time for Connor Blakely (Mid. $144,000, 12 be AF. $157,700 DT) wasn’t ideal. In what appears to be a managed initiation into AFL footy, Blakely had just 59% ground time against the Crows and scored 45 Fantasy points as a result. The young midfielder is a great one touch player and knows how to win the footy, he just needs the opportunity to do so. I expect more game time and Fantasy points from him this week against GWS.

We’re gona need another look at Jason Castagna (Def. $131,000, 12 be AF. $121,300 DT) 40, Kieran Lovell (Mid. $164,000, 27 be AF. $130,300 DT) 36, McKenzie Willis (Fwd/Mid. $128,000, 19 be AF. $121,300 DT) 32 and James Polkinghorne (Mid. $223,000, 44 be AF. $130,400 DT) 24. Their low scores in Round 6 have already put them in the unlikely category but I hold hope for Castagna especially.

Price and job security concerns rule out picking Jed Bews (Def. $240,000, 29 be AF. $244,600 DT) 65. I would also avoid Henry Schade (Def. $225,000, 29 be AF. $230,700 DT) 58, Fletcher Roberts (Def. $211,000, 40 be AF. $221,900 DT) 41 and Aliir Aliir (Def. $124,000, 23 be AF. $128,200 DT) 24 as they are not Fantasy relevant.

Keep Your Eye On

Screen Shot 2016-05-04 at 12.34.40 AMThe Sun’s poor showing in Geelong could open the door for Darcy MacPherson (Mid. $125,000, 24 be AF. $105,800 DT). After catching our eye in the NAB Challenge, a recent hot run of form in the NEAFL puts him ahead of most. If MacPherson is named and you opt to pick him it’s as a bench warmer only. Note that MacPherson needs to be elevated from the rookie list in order to be eligible for senior footy.

Remember Jack Trengove (Mid. $332,000, 63 be AF. $180,800 DT)!? The former number two draft pick just played his fourth consecutive VFL game and is pretty close to his long awaited AFL return. Looking at his numbers in the reserves, an average of 70 Fantasy points this season is a reasonable prediction but he’s Dreamteam relevant only due to price.

Josh Dunkley (Mid. $201,000, 9 be AF. $121,300, -53 be DT) is back in form after 34 possessions on BOG honours versus Werribee in the VFL on Saturday. I have no doubt that the young utility would add value to the Bulldogs and with Jed Adcock lacking form of late, Dunkley could be named on Thursday night. I’ve still got him in Dreamteam so fingers crossed.

 

Feel free to ask me a question below and don’t forget to add me on Twitter @JeppaDT for all things Fantasy and more. Happy trading!

  • Nice write up.
    J Smith seem an obvious first choice downgrade, but does Keays have a higher potential ceiling, and better JS?

  • First trade is parish to rocky, oink. Second is Adams to dempsey? But Is it worth the short term cash flow?

  • Who is the best trade for weitering and darcy parish

    Cheers

    • I’ve done Weitering to Smith parish to Rocky via dpp. Can u do that?

  • Great write up as usual, thank you. How is Mathieson looking and close to getting a call up?

    • was in the bests for lions reserves this week but brisbane players all performed well last week. close.

  • Thanks for the article, enjoy reading this each week. I have enough cash to upgrade 2 rookies to Rockliff & Barlow/Zorko/Vince or should I only upgrade 1 to Rockliff and fix up my mid bench by bringing in Josh Smith as I currently have Menadue & Blakely?

  • Hey Jeppa, nice write up as usual. Still wondering what should I do with Macaffer? Picked him and paid big bucks for his supposed JS and being one of Buck’s favourites. That worked out well.

    A downgrade to a 125k (or Matherson if named) would be the only option. But that is a real luxury trade at this point.

    • Downgrade to the drover’s dog if you have to… Macaffer’s making you nothing riding the pine and despite the Maggies being truly terrible they haven’t looked like picking him again.

      This bloke’s career has taken a massive nose dive. He used to be a great player in the forward line and won a flag with them… he hasn’t been the same since that John McCarthy incident.

    • crazy hey. He’s in the leadership group at collingwood too.
      u could trade him to blakely

  • On the bench, Keays or Smith? Or possibly McPherson if he plays for extra cash

  • Thanks for your efforts Jeppa, can you tell us what you think of short from tigers?

    • Crab. Pass

    • He is short by name and nature, and he outmarked Pendlebury in Round 2 which was pretty entertaining. Other than that I’d doubt to see him play regularly this year. Tigers have Grimes, Rance, Vlastuin, Conca, Lambert and possibly Yarran all to come into the side that played last week. Blokes like Menadue, Short, at least one of Lloyd/Lennon, Corey Ellis, Castagna, Batchelor, and Rioli are probably not established as consistent best 22 yet so I wouldn’t have any of them in my side after the next week or two when those various injuries and suspensions allow others back into the side.

      • Yeah thanks hard wick ya made some good points there bout how many senior tigers are on sidelines who will be automatic team selections

  • Trade 1 couch to rocky McDonald tipi to smith via dpp
    Or
    2 McDonald tipi to smith and dea to rocky via dpp?

  • Thanks Jeppa! In Elite so only worried about scores… Any thoughts on Membrey, Kersten, Simpkin, Matt Jones, Charlie Cameron… Or Hackson Merret or Mason Wood, if named.

  • love it jep great write up matey glad to hear smith looked great in the flesh bucks is said to be a fan of his as he has elite endurance, runs all day and he trains the house down.

    • +1 to Jeppa and Smith
      I didn’t manage to catch much of the game, but what I saw of it he was hard at it. He’s coming into both AF and RDT this week for me.

  • Going Dea – Smith (via Mills DPP)
    Thoughts on who to field out of the following?
    D6 – Walla, Cameron, Ruggles?
    F6 – McGovern, McCarthy, Menadue?

    Thanks

  • im calling it, mitch brown goes under half of what he got last week.

  • Nice work Jepp. Going Adams to smith with mills dpp. Only way I can get rocky is trading out Sgray. So will get rid of Davis for Keays and bring in Rocky next week. Thinking cash flow is more important this week

  • big shame your unable to trade in rocky this week jepp:)

  • Laird’s injury has prevented my double upgrade and has probably just messed up the rest of my year

    • With you there! Means my back line this week will be Shaw plus 5 potatoes.

      • No Sheridan? lol… what a crab he turned out to be. Got rid of him 2 weeks ago. Now Laird had to break a toe. Stuffed up my Rocky/Smith trade. Well can do it but that will still leave Dea and Tippa in defence with ruggles and tucker on the pine. Thinking Vince and Smith this week which will get rid of Dea this week.

        • Hehe… no Sheridan. Not getting another Ross Lyon defender, ever. Do they ever go well? They’ve all gone backwards since he took over… Michael Johnson, Ibbotson, Duffield, etc. Add Sheridan to the list.

          Your backline looks about as good as mine the way it is… which is not that great. The equivalent of Susan Boyle strutting her stuff on a nude beach. Bernie Vince at least adds a hessian sack!

          • Defence atm is Shaw, Vince, Rose (yo-yo V2.0), Fantasia, Mills and Tippa. Leaves me 2 rookies in the mids which I didnt want. Just inside the top 10k but want to make inroads further up. Susan Boyle… no thanks lol

          • Ibbotson was an awesome def POD inyears gone by….burnt me this year tho the f@#!!#

      • Mine’s in the same boat. Kelly + five spuds ready to be boiled/mashed/fried/chipped.

        • My backline is the same. Shaw and 5 spuds.
          Midfield of Hanners,Danger,Titch,Steven,Ablett,Duncan,Zaha and smith tho

          • I’d have a perma-stiffy if that was my MID team! No lines of my team even give me a semi… *sigh*

          • Haha. I thought I’d need a strong midfield to compensate my shit defence. Bring rocky in there next week and it’s done before the byes

  • All rookies ripening at the same time… need to offload Adams, Tippa, Parish, Mills, Dea, Ben10, Menadue and Davis this week if possible. Ugh.

    • Same boat mate. I also have Adams & Fantasia.I traded mckenzie & Weitering last week for hunter & smith. Pure gold move “if hunter gets up this week”.Fantasia & dea gone this week for barlow & vince with help of a healthy bank balance. Next week adams & ?? For Rocky and fresh meat.Thank god for dpp’s making it possible to cull rookies and get in keepers.

      • Yeah, with you on the DPP thing… makes or breaks your season come finals and limited trades.

        Nice trades you’ve got going there. I have Fantasia… moment of weakness. He’s a flash in the pan, isn’t he?

        • Happy to see everyone jump off Fantasia after 1 bad week. He’s got plenty left. If he’s anywhere near your biggest problem, you must be top 20 overall

          • I was just hoping he’d be a keeper and sadly he doesn’t like he will be. Happy to be proven wrong tho. In the meantime I’m stuck with him. Let’s hope he pulls a Barlow!

          • And for your information, I AM top 20 (*cough* thousand)

          • He served his purpose. It was a great ride the last few weeks.More than happy to take the cash and run for vince.DEAL! only concerns are adams, mena,davis really. Adams going next week & mena & davis can turn it around pretty quick AKA- the hewitt. Top 3000k so no complaints.

          • *Top 3000 “rank”. Don’t know why I put a “k” there???

          • Fantasia isn’t playing midfield anymore. He a permanent forward pretty much.

  • I decided Mills and Parish to Rocky and Smith

    Next week looking at Dea, Tippa, Davies, Hewett, Adams on the block next week might double downgrade next week Dea and Adams to Petercca and Keays

    Then i will probably have Wagner to Premo Brown to Premo and Smith to Premo

    • Kirk

      WHY WHY WHY????
      Mills ($31300) – Dea ($300000) surely you offload the latter before the former
      There’s only $13000 difference between the two
      Why don’t you trade DEA & PARISH to ROCKY & SMITH?????
      Move Mills to backline then get the two mids that you want!!!!!!
      I would assume that you mightn’t have the required cash??
      Also strong possibility that DEA will get dropped this week for GRIMA????
      Good luck

      • RDT no sneaky backliners like Mills otherwise i would have done that

  • Jeppa, what about Lee as an option for DT I need a defender to trade for Dea. I have exhausted my DDP options???

    • I am a saints fan, lee could get a game this week vs roos but wont score great 50ish id expect…i have him on pine as hes not maxed out yet…hes a good downgrade/bench/E but id be looking elsewhere if hes onfield. In your situation hes better than dea if lee is named imo

    • Sorry Bushe i just seen DT…. i play fantasy+ sc so maybe my comment is
      void

      • No, all good info. Do you reckon he could get a decent run? A few games? He is one the bubble in DT

        • Do ya have ruggles?,he my other def rookie and was managed last week sohe should be good to go for 3-4 weeks. I cant rem price difference but scores would (i guess) be better slightly better from ruggles

        • I doubt he will get a decent run,without looking at roster, he is like that extra def who will play when opp has more tall fwds

          • Thanks Will much appreciated. Good to get info from a saints fan. Will have a look at Ruggles. I should have brought in Byrne-Jones last week when I had the chance.

    • Tucker is a much better option. Should play the majority of the year for Freo.

    • lee is a hack

  • Don’t fork out the dosh for trading stats and stuff, but can anyone see if someone other than Smith or Rocky has been traded in this week?

    • I traded in keays…

      • Ballsy… scratched his way to 68 but looked okay I guess. Isn’t Smith only about 15k more?

        • Another wet weather game for the Lions in Adelaide this week.
          Keays is a hard nut tackling machine, so that is the perfect weather forecast for a high score !

    • I kept rocky so blakely+ simpson for me but howard might slip in for blakely

  • Great work jeppa, surprised no mention of Dougal Howard with Lobbe out for about 2 months. Looks like he has great js and should score decent, especially with his confidence growing.

  • Thanks Jeppa for all your efforts always makes for great reading
    Quick question – With Lambert possibly out for 4-6 weeks any chance of MARCON getting upgraded from rookie list with a chance of playing???
    Also BROAD form in the two’s????
    Good luck in 2016

    • yeah macron could replace cotch and or lambo but I’m pretty sure they can’t upgrade him

  • Cheers Jeppa! Bewdy of an article. As @thebopper58 mentioned above, any news on Nathan Broad from the Tigers in the Two’s? Quite a bit of hype around him. Thanks.

  • Can I please get some advice?

    These are my current trades:

    S Gray> Rockliff & Sheridan> J Smith w/$50k left

    It means I have to field M Adams this week, not ideal but I want to get both those players in this week and this is the only way. S Gray and Sheridan are two players I wanted to trade out weeks ago but never got the chance till now. From here on in i’ll just be culling rooks. Thoughts?

    Do I go with this or should I look to get in Blakely instead of J Smith which would mean I keep S Gray for a week or two….?

  • Ben Kennedy or Josh Smith on field? Would love to put Josh Smith on field for Tippa but not possible, when are the rookie defenders going to start coming through!

  • Got Smith last week which I couldn’t be happier about.

    Blakley the next best rook option this week?

    • Tomorrow’s teams might reveal a few gems… but of the knowns, wouldn’t Petracca and Keays be ahead of him?

      • Have 8 premo mids after getting Rocky this week, so Petracca at 240k is a big no.

        Question is if Keays is worth the extra 44k over Blakley. Even though his tackle numbers were good, playing at half forward for a bottom team doesn’t sit well with me. Blakley on the other hand will be in the guts, and surely gets more time on ground if he’s named. 45 from 59% TOG should equate to around 70 with 80% ToG.

  • I have a Rory Laird sized issue in my defence.
    I would like to hold.
    Side is never going to get better if I trade every injured player.

    I would like to go Menadue to Rocky
    And Dea (237k) or Adams (267k) to someone in the backline. Suggestions or this a shit idea?

  • Great stuff Jeppa.
    I need to play 1 rookie in def :(
    Walla, C. Cameron (GCS) or Ruggles?
    I think Walla on the SCG will get a bunch of tackles, but Cameron is vs Melb.

  • Josh Smith or Blakely for Fantasy?

  • Great read! Always enjoy it.
    I’ve taken Keays, but might now leave him until next week and take Josh Smith instead. Still a good BE for Smith. Hopefully Keays won’t explode this week.

  • Order to get rid of, dea, tippa, weitering, parish, adams

    • Weitering is injured.

      Beyond that perhaps whoever has the highest BE first (this order below is my sense of their respective BEs):

      Adams, Dea, Parish, Tippa

    • I’ve stated this in the article

  • Wagner or DBJ?

  • Field 2 in def, suggestions

    Mills, Wagner, Byrne, Hartley

    Field 1 in fwd, suggestions

    Kent, tippa, McCarthy

  • someone has probably already asked but what is the chance of ethan hughes getting a run with the dockers 22 disposals on debut last year and has had a few good weeks in the wafl

  • I have a dilemma!

    Do I A) Dea to Blakely (Mills to def via dpp) Matt Crouch to Rocky.$19k leftover
    Or
    B) Adam’s to Blakely (Mills to def) Sheridan to Bernie Vince. $34k leftover

  • Also keep your eyes on Shane Yarran (Freo – $125K FWD) – scored 52 in his first outing back from a knee injury in the WAFL. 3 sausage rolls in that score… and didn’t play a full game (80 minutes).

    Considering that Freo can’t score (*sigh*), he may come in soon-ish. I’m hoping just before byes for perfect timing for downgrades

  • Best defensive downgrade for dea? Can’t afford anyone good enough for an upgrade

  • Hey Jeppa do you think im any worse off with McPherson, the suns kid, vs blakely freo? Will be on bench only and the extra 20k gets me kelly/vince instead of simpson…

  • One to keep an eye out for also perhaps just before the byes: Menegola (Mid 127K), listed as a test on the AFL injury list. Not yet named for a run at VFL level though.
