    • If taranto is dropped do 1, if not trade miles or a different rookie depending on teams. Maybe get hannan if you can afford him which I think you can

    Bank: $7K

    Need some trade ideas, i have no clue what to do

  • Who to play on field out of

    Houston and Butler


    Hibberd and Otten

  • houli and mills to zak jones and laird?

  • 1 trade left and 300k. Which is the best option?

    Swallow/JOM – Heppell/Murphy
    Bowes/Taranto – Murphy
    Bowes/Taranto – Neal-Bullen and 250k in the bank

  • Help Boys.

    Miles or Butler on field

  • Help Boys.

    Otten or Stewart on field

    • I’ve gone otten and miles. I reckon butler will flop tonight. What were you thinking?

      • I have gone the same. Pretty easy for Butler to jag a few kicks and goals against Carlton but Pies are another story. Backing in Miles with a bit of mid time over butler sneaking some kicks up forward. Butler should have had a 60 if it wasnt for Dustin Martin gifting him a goal 1m out.

  • Franklin/Miller and Neal-bullen


    Macrae and Hannan/Butler

    OR any option with 866k, cheers in advance

  • Quick question
    kennedy to butler is locked in so other trade is either
    eddy> hannan
    eddy> miles
    shaw> laird although im not sure about swapping premos

  • Taranto + Smith > SPP + Miles or Smith + Eddy > Newman + Miles?

  • Field WHE or Taranto ?

  • Which FWD rookie should I bring in M.Kennedy? Options are Butler, Hannan or Miles given they will be on my field.

  • trade out horlin smith or taranto for WHE?

  • DEF: Adams, Laird, Shaw, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (Stewart, Hibberd)
    MID: Danger, Titch, SMitchell, Hall, Fyfe , Beams,O’Meara,SPP,(Pickett,Barrett)
    RUC: Martin, Nankervis (Preuss, Pierce)
    FWD: Roo, Dahlhaus,Roughy, Taranto, McCarthy, Butler (Miles, Eddy)

    Options? Leaning towards A

    A)Roo> Steele & Eddy > WHE bench Taranto
    B) Roo > Macrae & Eddy > Hannan
    C) Roo > Macrae & Taranto > WHE

  • Def: Adams, Laird, Mills, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (J.Smith, Stewart)
    Mid: Danger, Rocky, Treloar, Fyfe, Beams, O’Meara, Mountoford, Barrett (Hibberd, Pickett)
    Assuming everyone is named (other than smith obviously) should I go:
    Pickett to Gaff or
    J.Smith to a sub 590k def (who?)

  • Keep Treloars score as captain of 127 or take a risk with Danger or Rocky?

  • Should I sideways trade Horlin-Smith to Powell Pepper? Or do you think they’ll average around the same? Also does anyone think O’Meara will start firing soon?

    • Persist a little with O’meara.

      Horlin Smith and PP should average about the same with PP having greater JS. I would keep HS until he is dropped.

  • Hannan and 20k or Miles and 65k? This is for F6 normally but not this week as Butler was already locked in. Cheers

  • Kennedy to Miles and Smith to Newman. This leaves me with 54K

    I’m giving Taranto 1 more week to prove himself.

  • predict score this round for these players:
    lachie neale
    nat fyfe
    luke parker

  • With Zac Jones covering for Rampe, will he not be scoring as well as last week?

  • Do i take Butlers 59 as my E or do i back Miles to go higher?

  • Do I trade Swallow -> Redden even tho swallow was named this week?

    Current trades:
    Vicker-willis -> Newman and Taranto -> Miles (141k next week)
    Swallow -> Redden and Lloyd -> Z. Jones/ Tuohy (155k or 53k respectfully)

    • Awful trades sorry.

      Jones a little uncertain to play mid as Rampe is out. Swallow to Redden is sideways. Taranto was the best JLT rookie, give him 1 more chance as he could just as likely go higher than Miles.

  • DEF: Adams, Laird, Lloyd, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (Stewart, Hibberd)
    MID: Danger, ROcky, Titch, Fyfe, Gaff, Beams, JOM, SPP (Barratt, Mountford)
    RUC: Gawn, Nank (Preuss, Cameron)
    FWD: Dahl, Steele, Roughy, Taranto, WHE, Kennedy (Eddy, Pickett)

    $130K. Thoughts on:
    Kennedy -> hannan
    Eddy -> miles

    Look at Newman next week assuming hibbo is dropped, and even if he’s not

  • predicted scores this week for
    lachie neale
    parker and fyfe

  • Which 2 would you bring in? Newman, Miles or Hannan

    • Newman (because Smith is injured and Hibberd is shite) and Hannan because Miles only made it to the team because 4 guys got dropped. So he’s ranked somewhere from 24th -> 27th at a club that got beat by last year’s wooden spooners. You can assume Hannan is currently top 22 in a team that’s not only Fantasy friendly, but soundly pantsed a team widely tipped to be top 8 this year.

    • Newman Miles

  • Do we start Otten or Stewart and Horlin-Smith or Barrett?

  • Goodbye Hanners…two weeks of Shite
