2017 averages – Fantasy points for and against

ADE 16593.71.315502.30.7


  • I’ve got an interesting trade, lemme know your thoughts.

    Gawn> Martin
    Taranto> jake spencer via nank dpp.

    Nank goes into my forwardline which has weak rookies, and spencer is back up to preuss who will no be fielded

    • I like it. We know Spencer will have at least 12 weeks of JS and should average around 70 which means he’ll go up at least 100k. Gawn to Martin is rock solid too, Stef looks back to his best

  • Grundy and Williamson
    Touk and Houston?

    Really struggling. I like 1 because I see Grundy averaging 110-115 he’s that good. But Houston is a better rookie than Williamson. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    DEF:Doch, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten, Newman (Hibberd, Stewart)
    MID: Danger, Rocky, Treloar, Neale,T.Adams, Beams, JOM, Barrett (Pickett, Balic)
    RUC: Gawn, Stef (Pruess, Cameron)
    FWD: Dahl, Steele, Nank, Roughy, WHE, Taranto (Eddy, Miles)

    Thoughts on trades?!? Really stuck Atm. Have heard some solid suggestions but want to consider all my possible option.
    Thanks In advance.

  • Thoughts on what Spencer can realistically average. Can’t seem to find exact JLT stats, but they’d be missleading since he wasn’t #1 ruck and TOG would’ve been down.

  • Who to play on field:

    Butler or Barrett?

  • Too late to get SPS in RDT? I already have Newman and I don’t like the cheaper options. Or just bank the cash and get Hayward?

  • Thoughts on going Taranto to Houston (F6) for AF

  • DEF: Addams, Laird, Doch, Marchbank, Hampton, Newman (Otten, Stewart)
    MID: Danger, Treloar, Fyfe, Beams, M.Crouch, Oliver, JOM, SPP (Barrett, Pickett)
    RUC: Stef, Nank (Pruess, Cameron)
    FWD: Macrae, Dahl, Steele, Roughy, WHE, Butler (Eddy, Balic)


    Seriously thinking of going:

    Both look like averaging more and making more $

    Any other ideas?

  • thoughts of Heath Shaw??

  • DEF: Adams, Laird, Docherty, Marchbank, Hampton, Newman (Otten, Stewart)
    MID: Dangerfield, Rockliff, Treloar, Heppell, Swallow, O’Meara, Barrett, Bowes (Balic, Pickett)
    RUC: Gawn, Grundy (Preuss, Pierce)
    FWD: Macrae, Dahlhaus, Caddy, Roughead, Butler, Eddy (Weideman, Cameron)
    Thoughts of going Gawn > Parsons via DPP then using the cash to go Bowes > Gaff in the midfield leaving me with 46k. Or should I go Titchell over Gaff which leaves me with 4k??

  • Too late to get SPS in RDT?

  • Which is the best option and why? Cheers. Hoping for Parker and Neale to go big.

    1. Roughead > ANB and JOM > Swallow
    2. Roughead > 150k RUC via Nankervis and JOM > Murphy/Heppell
    3. Taranto > Balic and Mountford > Miles

  • need helppp!
    keep caddy and trade JOM > murphy
    Trade caddy > Macrae
    whoever i keep will trade next week

  • Barrett omitted what.

  • And miles and o’meara. This is carnage.

  • WHE last name on the emergencies? Should we be looking into this?

  • Please, which one?

    1. O’meara > Swallow and Taranto > Balic
    2. Roughead > 150k RUC via Nankervis and O’Meara > Murphy/Heppell/Sloane

    • I like option 2 and would go with Sloane of those 3, not sure about Balic yet after a 35 so I’d wait another weak

  • With Barrett out, Pickett or Balic to field this week

  • My Team:
    DEF: Adams, Laird, Docherty, Marchbank, Otten, Newman (Hampton, Stewart)
    MID: Dangerfield, Treloar, Mitchell, Fyfe, Beams, O’Meara, Powell-Pepper, Barrett (Miles, Mountford)
    RUCK: Martin, Nankervis (Preuss, Cameron)
    FWD: Macrae, Dahlhaus, Steele, Roughead, Hoskin-Elliot, Taranto (Butler, Pickett)

    Cash: $92k

    What to do? Bit stuck was thinking Miles/Barrett to Williamson (Via Adams) and field Hampton in the backline but then the backline is so weak

    • Gonna have to offload O’Meara. Maybe to ANB or Swallow? I think you might be able to afford Taranto > Balic and O’Meara > Oliver/Watson. Look at mine below?

  • Fantasy: 22k
    DEF: Adams, Laird, Docherty, Marchbank, Hampton, Newman (Otten, Stewart)
    MID: Danger, Treloar, Neale, Parker, Beams, JOM, Powell-Pepper, Barrett (Pickett, Mountford)
    RUC: Grundy, Nankervis (Preuss, Cameron)
    FWD: Dahlhaus, Touk, Steele, Roughead, Hoskin, Houston (Taranto, Butler)

    So much carnage, gotta trade JOM. Can’t afford a premo for JOM unless I downgrade Rough to A rook ruck via Nank. Do I risk that? I have no idea what to do. Cheers.

    • Roughy to ruck rook then JOM to Murph. Hands are tied on Mountford with Barrett out.

    • O’Meara to ANB, Mountford to Williamson via Adams. Simple. Don’t do silly non-playing ruck rook stuff.

  • JOM out means Parker lives and becomes my lowest averaging midfielder. Murphy in.

    Hoping Parker comes right tonight

  • ANB or Swallow?

  • DEF: Adams, Laird, Simpson, Marchbank, Hampton, Newman (Otten, Stewart)

    MID: Danger, Treloar, Mitchell, Fyfe, Beams, JOM – Out, Barrett – out, Berry – Out (Miles – Out, Pickett)

    RUC: Gawn – Out, Martin (Preuss, Cameron)

    FWD: Macrae, Dahl, Nankervis, Roughead, WHE, Butler (Hannan, Eddy – Out)

    41k in kitty

    Thinking barrett to williamson via adams, Omeara to Swallow? Thoughts?

  • trade Barrett or JOM this week to watson?

    • JOM

    • it’s tough, if barrett comes back you’d really want to keep him whereas you’d want to trade out jom anyway. If barrett does come back next week you’d make a great move keeping him, if he doesn’t you’d want to trade. Just to be safe you could trade jom this week and if barrett isn’t back trade him.

  • Eddy/Miles – Williamson
    Jom – ANB
    Barrett – Williamson
    Jom – Swallow
    Gawn – Spencer
    Jom – Pendles/Sloane

  • Parfitt and neal-bullen or spp and petreski-seaton??

  • Williamson or Horlin-Smith on field?

  • Do I back in Balic to score 57+ and trade Gawn to Grundy leaving me with 134k. If so next week I either hope barrett is recalled or keep/trade Balic at M8 because I really need to trade Mills. If I keep Preuss’ 57 then I will keep gawn on the bench and go Barrett to swallow and the next week Mills to any premo mid through Adams and Gawn to Soldo?

  • Fantasy
    21k in the bank
    DEF: Adams, Laird, Docherty, Marchbank, Hampton, Newman (Otten, Stewart)
    MID: Danger, Treloar, Neale, Parker, Beams, O’Meara, Powell-Pepper, Taranto (Barrett, Mountford)
    RUC: Grundy, Nankervis (Preuss, Cameron)
    FWD: Dahlhaus, Touk, Steele, Rough, WHE, Houston (Butler, Pickett)

    Stuck on trades.
    Feeling I should do O’Meara > ANB/Swallow and Taranto > Balic. Leaving me 100k+ for next week. This is pretty sideways but I’m not sure what else to do. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Cheers.

  • Thoughts on

    JOM -> ANB
    Barrett -> SPP/SPS

  • start SPP or GHS?
