Game on, baby – Ep. 125

Round one scores have been tallied, new prices calculated and we’re ready to make our first trades. With the weekly price movements, we need to be smart when using our two trades.

There were some very high scores this round with 62 players breaking the 100 point barrier.

It’s important not to just chase last week’s big score as Roy, Calvin and Warnie look at the best strategy for this first week of trading on the Official AFL Fantasy Podcast.

Also in this week’s podcast:

  • Warnie’s lockout experience.
  • What we learned from round one including the slow burning rookies.
  • The top team of round one, Paul Forrester’s “raulup” that scored 2373 (see team below).
  • Your social media questions answered.
  • The Traders’ team.

    thoughts?

    • Hey mate, honestly, I wouldn’t worry too much about sideways trades right now. You picked Mills and Ryder over those guys for a reason, and it’s just as likely that your current mob outscore the new guys this coming week. Focus on rookies and injuries at this stage

      • i have 6k coin in the bank, i have to sort out one of those trades so i can afford to swap eddy or my other bench fwd to butler or hannan

  • Just a quick question for anybody reading this:

    Now that we have 3 trades during the bye rounds, shouldn’t the total number of trades jump to 47 rather than 44? Or is it just that we are able to make 3 trades during those weeks and have to find 3 weeks where we only make 1 trade?

    • Have you found an answer to this yet?? It certainly could change trading strategies during these early rounds

  • Great podcast as always

  • alex georgiou was that dogshit defender rookie everyone was stuck with

  • I’m just praying Jamie Elliot comes back this week

  • Dawgfather

    Congratulations on the new addition to your family – a new puppy (oops beautiful baby girl)
    Wait until she gets the DPP (dirty putrid poo) and you’ve got to change her!!
    Great podcast and always fun listening

    Good luck with the sleepless nights but it’ll give you time to look at your side even more???

  • Hi you Legends Roy, Cal and Warnie

    Firstly Congrates on the new little Bub, hope she grows up to look as beautiful as her ol man, but without the beard.

    Now I was thinking of Trading out Lloyd and J Smith for A McGrath and Jones but after listening to you guys chat on here you all make a lot of sense when you say Doggies leak a lot of points so maybe I should keep Lloyd and try bringing in Z Jones in other means do you think I’m doing the right thing? I am Ranked 11830 as that makes me happy.
