  • A bit of worldly advice from Shags.

    Next week, you WANT to be trading in players who just had the bye. I am reading a few people using up their upgrades on round 13 bye players this week. Unless your bye structure is totally screwed I think its better to Save it for next week and do a double downgrade instead this week. Your goals over byes are a tad different, you should be aiming to maximise the number of players you have on the field, and trying to avoid having any player who is playing on your bench. If you can do that and upgrade your team at the same time, you are WINNING.

    .

  • Personally I think double downgrading and having even up to 22 on field this week is perfect strategy. Extra cash allows you to cull any rookies on the bye over next two weeks (Its difficult finding rookies after their bye to trade in, its easier finding upgrades after their bye) Having the most on field but more rookies on field in first bye round makes sense, as the next to following weeks in theory you should be able to upgrade to another premium. Eg will have less players, but an extra premium which helps balance the scores a bit.

    Perfect bye round structure IMO is 8 11 11.

    • I’d love to Shags but personally need a FWD rook to downgrade to and it’s slim pickings. Reid does not inspire me. Have been loving the Haus this year but his injury has forced my hand this week. Chasing points so it’s a sideways trade there and a semi downgrade to Tucker in DEF for me.

  • Anyone considering Gunston over Gray, Smith etc? Going at 100 over his last 6. I’m tempted, and has the round 15 bye.

  • Matt kennedy 1st gamer or reid in this week? Both are from gws and look good for my bye structure. Just want to know about their JS and scoring potential. Cheers

    • kenndedy had 3 goals and 128 dt points last week didnt play the week b4

      reid had 4 goals and 119 dt points 2 weeks ago and 55 last week, id go reid out of them has the dpp and is cheaper

  • D- Shaw, Vince,Kelly, Dea, Wagner, Collins (ruggles, Cameron)
    M- Hunter, Macrae, danger, B. Ellis, Duncan, Blakely, Rockliff, Steven (davis, Math)
    R- Gawn, Jacobs (currie, cox)
    F- Montagna, zorko, Kerridge, Martin, Petracca, I. Smith (Tippa, Hams)

    1. Math to Stewart- B.Ellis to Reid $400 left

    2. Math to reid- cameron to Austin $254 left

    3. Math to reid/stewart- cameron to hipwood $227 left

    Want to get rid of ellis, may be risky relying on rookies playing the next couple of rounds though. Thoughts? or any better trades? Cheers

    • 1 get bulk cash if you are in leagues and think u can roll whoever ur playing

      Dont go hipwood he is a key position defender and they dont normally sore big.

      id hold math he should get a run again hes killing it in the 2’s ellis to reid then ruggles/cameron to austin??

  • Thoughts?

    AFL Fantasy

    DEF: Shaw, Bartel, Suckers, Mills, Ruggles, Collins (DOC, SMITH)

    MID: Danger, Hanners, PENDLES, SIDEY, Hunter, Titch, Rocky, Gaff (MENADUE, SUMNER)

    RUCK: Gawn, Stef (CURRIE, COX)

    FWD: MARTIN, Smith, Petracca, Tippa, McCarthy, Hams (MONTANGA, DAVIS)

    Cash 26k

  • Hey lads, I preferably want to double downgrade this week and before trades I have a bye structure of 7-12-11. Preferably want to get it to 8-11-11 any ideas as to how I can get that as well as double downgrading ?

    DEF:Shaw Bartel Suckling Tipungwuti Wagner Harwood (Collins Ruggles)

    MID:Danger Hanners Steven Hunter Rocky Parker Zaharakis Smith (Gresham Mathieson)

    RUC:Goldy Martin (Currie Frost)

    FWD:Merret Martin Gray Kerridge Wingard Petracca (McCarthy Sumner)

    Was thinknig of going ruggles-broad and hope that he gets a game soon and Wagner – Reid

    • Hard to find rookies to change into that bye structure..

      Personally if I was double downgrading that team I would go
      Tipu – Reid via smith dpp
      McCarthy – Hams

      Should generate a bit of cash, unfortunately it would leave your bye structure at 7-12-11, but you should have enough for the following week to go something like
      Wagner – laird/doch/Simpson
      Ruggles – broad/round 13 rookie that gets named.

      Hope this helps

    Thoughts appreciate!!

  • Do we think Sam Reid will stick around through the byes

  • MY CURRENT TEAM & TRADES – ROUND 13
    DEF:Shaw-boyd-suckling-collins-tucker-wagner(smith-byrne)

    RUC:Nicnat-martin(cox-currie)
    FWD:Zorko-JJK-kerridge-martin-barlow-davis(hams-adams)

    78k in the bank and current trades are:
    Nicnat to Gawn
    C.Ellis to S.Reid
    Leaves me with $191k and have 20 playing this week
    Thoughts ?

  • Real DT
    dunkley -trengove then dahlhaus to merret
    or
    mccarthy to hams then dahlhaus to merrett?

  • Def: Shaw, Smith, Byrne, Mills, Docherty, Vince, (Collins, Ruggles)
    Mid: T.Mitchell, Ablett, Dangerfield, Sidebottom, Hanneberry, Neale, Rockliff, Blakeley (Mathieson, Jansen)
    Ruc: Martin, Gawn (Cox, Currie)
    Fwd: Hall, Martin, Barlow, Montagna, Kerridge, Menadue (McCarthy, Hams)

    Already gone Menadue to Reid giving me 163k to spend

    Did a pretty shit job of planning my byes and as a result am stuck with 11/6/13 after that trade… so thinking I need a round 14 player! any ideas?

    Cheers :)

    • Menadue to Reid is good.
      Maybe Byrne to suckling or pittard? Just to strengthen the Def a bit more with a round 14?

  • What are people’s thoughts on Logan Austin as a downgrade option this week don’t know much about him, cheers

    • Price wise he’s great but Jeppa says to avoid as he’s just filling a hole short term plus he’s a key defender

  • Best defender under 410k?

    • Birchall, Suckling and Rosa.
      Even though Suckers scored poorly last week, he has 4 of the last 6 games at Etihad which is ideal. Plus the doggies plan Essendon and Fremantle in their last two matches (perfect for league finals).

      • Sorry, I should’ve mentioned i already had suckling. I will consider rosa and birch though

  • Cash: $34K
    DEF: Shaw, Vince, Simpson, Wagner, Byrne-Jones, Smith (Collins, Harwood)
    MID: Dangerfield, Hannebery, T.Mitchell, Zaha, Steven, Hunter, Lewis, Blakely (Jansen, Macpherson)
    RUCK: Gawn, Martin (Currie, Cox)
    FWD: Merrett, Hall, Montagna, Martin, Kerridge, Wells (McGovern, Hams)

    Thoughts on trades? I’m think of going
    1.) McGovern to S.Reid and Smith to Laird or
    2.) McGovern to S.Reid and MacPherson (downgrade)
    Also could get Rocky in for Blakely but Blakely has been good lately. Or other trades.

  • s 2the peckies

    DEF: Pittard, Kelly, Byrne-Jones, Wagner, Collins, Ruggles (J. Smith, Laird)
    MID: Rockliff, Titchell, Lewis, Gaff, Hopper, Oliver, Dunkley, Blakely, (Armitage, Matheison)
    RUC: Goldstein, S. Martin (Cox, Currie)
    FWD: Dusty, Zerret, Petracca, Tippa, Wells, (Menadue, Kerridge)

    445k left

    I’m in a bit of a pickle atm. I have only 7 Round 13 players atm. My structure atm looks like 7/11/12. Problem is that Menadue who I wish I could have gotten rid of is no chance of being named after the byes. I’m thinking if I can trade in at least 1 Round 13 guy it will adjust my structure and trades which in theory I will be ok.

    Now there are practically no rookies for round 13 guaranteed playing so I’m thinking either Docherty/Simpson or Montagna in as well as Sam J Reid. Hopper and Oliver go which leaves me 8/10/12 and next week I pull the trigger and bring in Ablett and Steven.

    1) Is this crazy?
    2) Docherty/Simpson/Montagna?
    3) Any other feedback?

    Much appreciated guys.

    • Add Barlow to the FWDs

    • Seems like a solid plan to me mate, gets you numbers for the bye, generates cash and you’ve got a plan for next week. Lock it in

  • I done a double downgrade (from my bench) so I can have heaps of salary to upgrade my defence. I have $380k left, however I do have a full 18 playing. Thoughts on this team would be very much appreciated. :)

    DEF: Shaw, Boyd, Dea, Wagner, Ruggles, Harwood [Austin, Collins]
    MID: Dangerfield, T.Mitchell(C), Hunter, Rockliff(VC), Lewis, Duncan, Petracca, Dunkley [MacPherson{B}, Davis{B}]
    RUC: Gawn, West{DNP} [Cox{B}, Currie{B}]
    FWD: Z.Merrett, Franklin, R.Gray, S.J.Reid, Montagna{B}, D.Martin{B} [Kerridge{B}, Hall{B}]

    Just to let you know, my planned trades for next round is downgrading MacPherson to Phillips (if he plays), and upgrading Wagner to Simpson.

    This week’s trades I got rid of Byrne and McGovern and pulled in Austin and S.J.Reid as it will make me more money and give me lots of extra salary.

  • what is everyone’s thoughts on Matthew Kennedy?

  • Cash: 30k
    Def: Shaw (V), Boyd, Suckling, Dea, Mills, Ruggles (Collins, Leslie)
    Mid: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Hannebery, Hunter, Ablett, Duncan, Rockliff (C), Blakely (MacPherson, Mathieson)
    Ruck: Gawn, Martin (Cox, Frost)
    Fwd: Riewoldt, Martin, Daniel, Petracca, Crozier, McCarthy (Kerridge, Davis)

    What trades should I make?

  • Wow I must confess you make some very trnhecant points.
