  • Simpson and Broad or Kelly and Ashby

  • should I trade out byrne so I can get phillips or just trade currie to a 125k?

    • Currie to a 125k looks the goods as he is out with a fresh injury and is just wasted cash on the bench. Byrne might earn you a little more still

  • Tossing up who to trade in my DEF in order to have 18 playing this week. I have either Ruggles, Collns or Mohr on the chopping block this week. Mohr is still 1-2 weeks away from coming back from injury and even still I’m not sure if he will go straight into the team again – Collins still has more cash to make and Ruggles is only just coming good.

    One of these guys needs to go to Vince…I’ve gone with Mohr which uses all of my cash. Thoughts?

    • if it fits future trade plans then go mohr out, the other two have cash to makes whilst mohr dosnt

    • good move, mohr is finished for the year; collins and ruggles to make a little more and can be cashed in for extra cash later

  • Is it worth trading Ruggles to Ashby if that gets me to Ablett and avoids a doughnut ?

    Any other defender suggestion?

    Very reluctant to trade Ruggles currently with his good form…

    • Ablett is definitely a must, I’m having the same dilemma about Ruggles above. Think in your case its imperative to get him in – not sure if Ashby is the right choice of a downgrade though.

  • Gday everyone I have 67,000 in the bank and am unsure what to do this week. Any help would be appreciated

    Def: Shaw, Simpson, Vince, Laird, Z.Williams, Biggs (Ruggles, Collins)

    Mid: Rockliff, Ablett, Hannebery, Hunter, Lewis, Dangerfield, Kerridge, Mathieson (Jansen, Hiscox)

    Ruck: Gawn, Martin (Frost, Currie)

    Fwd: Riewoldt, Zorko, Merrett, Hall, Gray, Hams (Phillips, S.Reid)

    • Team looks very solid. Downgrade Currie to 125k ruck for cash (Naismith maybe) and then upgrade Kerridge to Treloar?

      • Naismith or Frampton (Port). Hinkley has said Frampton should get a game this year as Dougal is out for the year.

    • agree with bomberpap, currie to go for rook and kerro for premo, treloar great choice

  • Hey everyone,

    If anybody is interested in following some AFL Fantasy on Youtube this year, me and my mate are providing videos every week about tips and advice for Fantasy coaches! If not, ignore this message and continue your trading :)

    AFL Fantasy:

    Cheers Lads

  • should i trade duncan or zaha for stevens

  • Best defensive downgrade if any?

  • Got a full team of 18 this week, but that is totally depending on the status of Austin and Dunkley.

    DEF: Boyd, Simpson, Suckling, Wagner, Austin
    MID: T.Mitchell, Hunter, R.Gray, Kerridge, Petracca, Dunkley
    RUC: Gawn, Grundy [Cox]
    FWD: Z.Merrett, D.Martin, Montagna, Hall, Franklin, Davis [Phillips]

    Players that have bye: Shaw, Collins, Ruggles, Lewis, Duncan, Dangerfield, Rockliff, West, S.J.Reid

    I have $3,000, my current trades were both upgrades (Harwood > Suckling), (Currie > Grundy).

    If both Dunkley and Austin are not playing, I’ll keep Currie on bench for one more week and upgrade one of my defenders and bring in Stef Martin next week but only if both those players don’t play. Opinions?

  • Shaw, vince, laird, trengrove, wagner, smith (collins, ruggles)
    Hanna, titchel, lewis, rocky, gaz, hunter, danger, steven (blakely, jansen)
    Jacobs, smith (nankervis, currie)
    Dusty, zorko, monty, kerridge, daniel, davis (reid, kommer)

    Option 1:
    Blakley – phillips (via reid DPP)
    Ruggles – boyd/simpson/docherty

    Option 2:
    Blakely – Nroo
    Ruggles – Broad

    • option 2 if broad is named, if not then go option 1 and take Docherty

  • Hey lads, really stuck on what trades I could do this week, any ideas ?

    DEF:Shaw Bartel Laird Suckling Smith Ruggles (Collins Harwood)

    MID:Danger Hanners Rocky Ablett Steven Hunter Parker Zaha

    Trades are:
    McGovern and Blakely to Z.Merrett and B.Vince with $114k remaining
    Unless any other ideas??

  • Simpson, Zaharakis or Gray for Blakeley?

  • Draft league. Harvey or Petracca?

  • Which set of trades should I do ? or neither ?

    1)Dangerfield – Gibbs and Harwood – Yeo

    2)Dangerfield – Gaff and Harwood – Vince/Doch/Simp

    I know they are risky but I’m going to hope dangerfield drops and can get him in a few weeks, thoughts ??

  • Hey guys,
    I’m risking it with the Danger>Gaff trade this week.
    Is it worth doing an upgrade with my 2nd trade or banking the cash for a double upgrade next week? My options are:.
    1. Blakely> Merrett

    2. Blakely> Broad/Ashby

    2. Currie> Naismith

    3. Blakely>Suckling/boyd/docherty

  • would ashby or broad be a better option as a d8? cheers.

  • Got 7 players available in the forward line. Should I field McGovern or Hams

  • Best mid under 455k?

  • which option?
    1. blakley to matheison, davis to dusty/montagna
    2. blakley to wagner/120k rook, davis to merrett

  • Clay Smith or Phillips to downgrade to the week.


  • Bank 75K

    DEF: Shaw, Vince, Docherty, Laird, Suckling, J. Smith, (Byrne, Austin)
    MID: Titch, Dangerfield, Pendles, Ablett, Hunter, Zaha, Duncan, Rocky (Gresham, Mathisen)
    RUCK: Gawn, Martin (Currie, Cox)
    FWD: Dusty, Kerridge, Montagna, R. Gray, Hams, Phillips (S Reid, Davis)

    Downgrade Currie and Davis? Or Upgrade Davis too fwd under 536k??
    Think i need to look at getting Zerrett in but cant afford still.

    any help would be great :)

  • Is zmerret 123 points worth keeping as VC or go tom Mitchell or ablett?

    • 123 is a rock solid captain score. No need to chase..If you pick Ablett you probably should have picked Mitchell and vice versa. Bank the points

  • Thanks. Is your app not letting you swap captains because have C on Mitchell and VC on zmerret but i want zmerret score and wont let me swap captain to bench player

  • Silvagni or Clay Smith

  • Def: Shaw, Simpson, Vince, Laird, Z.Williams, Biggs (Ruggles, Collins)
    Mid: Rockliff, Ablett, Hannebery, Hunter, Lewis, Dangerfield, Kerridge, Mathieson (Jansen, Hiscox)
    Ruck: Gawn, Martin (Frost, Currie)
    Fwd: Riewoldt, Zorko, Merrett, Hall, Gray, Hams (Phillips, S.Reid)
    67,000 in bank.

    I appreciate any help, thanks in advance

    • 1stly, great squad.

      currie for a 125k rook and maybe biggs or kerro for an upgrade? leaning towards biggs.

      ruggles and collins should make some cash this week, next week one or both could be culled?

      wish i had your problems

  • James rose or clay smith with 100k extra

  • Still stuck on if i should take zmerret points or put the C on tom Mitchell.

    Thoughts and advice guys?

    • Bank the points with Zerrett. Unless you really think T.Mitchell can score like 150. which is only 27 points more.

    • dont look a gift horse in the mouth, take ’em and bank ’em

  • Ok sweet i have just put the C On rocky and take zmerret points. Thanks

  • Currie to a 125k ruck or Collins > Broad? Or Ryan Davis > Clay Smith

    • do you need an extra body on ground this week? if not, i’d look at currie out 1st. collins to make a little bit more as i think davis will. i reckon broad has this week to hold his spot and not 100% on smith js

  • who goes out for lukey parker?

    A) Duncan
    B) Jelwood
