2017 averages – Fantasy points for and against

ADE 1659.254.251.51600.52.751


  • For the 3rd week straight I have traded out Parker for Rocky and then been forced to reverse trade every week because of team selection.

    You survive again Parker. You are single handedly destroying my chance at a car. If you dont perform this week you are going out even if I have to take a donut, its the principle.

    • He’s almost hit his minimum price range. If he can show a triple figure score, he’s a steal under 550k. Probably have to ride him out, as he is due a good score. Expect a crappy game against GWS tho

    • Carlton, Brisbane, North, St Kilda, Hawks after GWS

  • Anyone know where to get VFL and NEAFL fantasy scores? Need to make an informed choice between Melican and Vickers.

    Looks like Vickers had a blinder for Weribee in their first game last week with 31 touches, 5 marks, 3 frees, a couple of marks and a goal.

    NEAFL website doesn’t have stats but Melican had a bye last week, was named in best the week before but not round 1.

    If I can’t find actual fantasy scores, I’m going Vickers.

  • By the way, Polsen had 27 touches, 6 marks, 3 tackles.

  • Elliot Yeo. We meet again…

  • Stefan Martin or Grundy best replacement for Kreuzer? Prefer Grundy but won’t know if Mason Cox is back until after lockout.

    Thanks for any advice.

  • Should I bring in:

    Eddy > Houston and play at F6
    Eddy > Spencer via Nankervis and play Nankervis at F6

  • Roughead to Steele, or Newman to EVW and build up cash

  • need help with my trades !

    first trade i am doing is caddy > polson which gives me 387k

    then i can’t choose out of:

    Watson > sloane/rocky
    otten> hibberd
    roughead > heeney

    either way i will have a lot of $$ for next week

  • Can someone please tell me a little about Houston? is he playing pure forward? can he sustain scores of 70+?


  • Unsure… thoughts on the trades of Rough > Yeo and Newman > EVW!?
    Here’s the team below before trades,

    DEF: Adams, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten, Newman (Stewart, Hibberd)
    MID: Dangerfield, Treloar, Titch, Fyfe, Parker, Beams, ANB, SPP (Barrett, Balic)
    RUC: Grundy, Martin (Preuss, Cameron)
    FWD: Dahlhaus, Greene Roughy, Nankervis, WHE, Houston (Pickett, Miles)

    The thing is I would only have to field EVW for one week because I’d be able to go Houston when he grabs DPP > defence, Mitch Hib > midfield/trade and then Barrett or Balic at f6, potentially.
    I have 545k when downgrade Newman to 150ker leaving me just short of the likes of Lloyd/Kelly. Need some help here guys, would love to know your thoughts on what trades I should make?!?!

  • Stuart

    Is this crazy:

    Danger>Rocky & SPP>Houston

    DEF: Adams, Laird, Doch, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (Newman,Stewart)
    MID: Rocky, Treloar, Fyfe, Beams, M.Crouch, Oliver, ANB, Swallow (Barrett, Balic)
    RUC: Martin, Nank (Preuss, Cameron)
    FWD: Macrae, Dahlhaus, Steele, WHE, Houston, Butler (Pickett, Eddy)

    For all we know Preuss, Newman, Barrett, Balic & Eddy could all be back next week. Sick of watching Danger not perform like a $700k mid, Rocky comes in and gets captaincy. SPP might have topped out and I don’t want to miss out on Houston who will propably gain DPP fwd/def next week and is in good form making $.
    Is this madness or could it be good?

  • Hi Yall

    my trades this week were

    Roughy to Polsen
    Krez to Grundy

    was going originally

    Nank & Rough to Roo & Polsen but Krez is out and don’t want to put nank in the ruck.

    other option is Barrett to Fisher and then Krez to Goldy. leaves me with 4k but my structure doesn’t look that bad

    currently running with Adams in the mid but had to switch him back to defense to cover Newman

    and have switched Dalhous to the middle to cover adams and playing Polson on field which not a fan of.

    but with the roughy downgrade i have $130,000 so will most likely upgrade WHE to Roo next week with Newman downgrade. or bring in rocky or Doherty next week

    any other suggestions if Krez and Newman were playing i would be a bit happier.

  • GET C OLIVER OR BONT ???????????

  • DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten, Newman (Williamson, Stewart)
    MID: Rockliff, Dangerfield, Titch, Gaff, Fyfe, Beams, Adams, SPP (JOM, Miles)
    RUC: Stef, Nank (Cameron, Pruess)
    FWD: Dahlhaus, Roughead, Steele, WHE, ANB, Taranto (Eddy, Balic)
    $124k in the bank

    Newman -> Polson (DPP, get ADams back in DEF)
    JOM – Kelly

    Next week I could go Taranto->evw via otten if that happens

  • Def
Adams Laird mills marchbank Otten Hampton (Newman, Stewart )
Dangerfield Treloar Fyfe beams murphy Swallow ANB SPP (Barrett mountford )
Grundy Nank ( Cameron preuss )
Macrae Dahlhaus Greene Roughead WHE Houston (Miles Pickett )

    Hi guys wat trades can I make don’t know where to start. 36k in bank

    • I’d be looking to get rid of mountford and maybe stewart to get some rookies that will start making you some money. Then next week you can downgrade an otten/SPP and upgrade someone like roughy

  • 111k remaining.
    DEF: Laird, Docherty, Marchbank, Hampton, Newman, Otten (Williamson, Stewart)
    MID: Dangerfield, Treloar, Adams, Neale, Parker, Beams, ANB, SPP (Barrett, Mountford)
    RUC: Grundy, Nank (Preuss, Cameron)
    FWD: Dahlhaus, Miller, Steele, Hoskin-Elliot, Roughead, Houston (Butler, Pickett)

    I think roughy is saved this week due to the carnage
    1. Newman > EVW and Roughy > Muphy via ANB DPP (0k Remaining)
    2. Newman > EVW and Barrett > Polson via Pickett DPP (322k Remaining) This will allow me to upgrade roughy next week and afford anyone (Rocky/Merrett/Sloane/Titch etc)
    3. Newman > Fisher via Adams DPP and Barrett > Polson via Pickett DPP (Leaving 260k)

    With 2 I’ll be able to afford anyone next week for roughy but I’m not sure about EVW’s JS.
    With 3 I’ll have to do another downgrade somewhere to afford a top uber premo for roughy. Thoughts? Cheers.
