  • DEF: Doc, Laird, Jones, Marchbank, Otten, Newman (Hibberd, Hampton)
    MID: Titch, Zerrett, Danger, Gaff, Fyfe, Myers, Greenwood, Lloyd (SPP, Balic)
    RUCK: Grundy, Witts (Preuss, Cameron)
    FWD: Dahlhaus, Steele, Nank, Heeney, Miller, WHE (Butler, Black)

    Warne Chest – $503K
    This week assumes that Butler will come back. Do I trade out Hampton, or wait a week to use his (nonchanging) cash then, and suffer the lack of bench cover or…
    #1 SPP + Balic > JPKennedy + Barlow
    #2 Hampton + Balic > Pittard + Barlow

    other options out there? Not yet sold on Pittard.

    • I like option 2 for these reasons. SPP will play all through byes so IMO a keeper. barlow and pittard will play all through byes and Hampton is out injured and will struggle to regain his spot and rumour in perth is balic wont play again this year. win win

    What trades can I make this week and with the bye rounds coming up wats my best moves.???
    Help appreciated

    • Are you going for rank or league wins? Are byes on in leagues?
      Bye structure (looks like):
      D: 1-2-2-3
      M: 1-2-2-5
      R: 0-1-2-1
      F: 0-5-2-1
      All: 2-10-8-10
      So heavy on R11 & 13 when you consider 5-6 non-playing rooks.

      Got to go…
      Hampton (injured)
      Miles (injured but check return date)
      Picket

      Should go (soon / at bye)…
      Mills
      Marchbank (can hold for a while)

      If chasing rank then down/up grade to get Port/ GCS players in now and next week
      If chasing league wins then fix all rook slots – you will thank yopurself when later rounds come and you have more cash to upgrade

      suggest:
      – Hampton (DPP Otten) –> Greenwood (if named) +$130k ish (>$225k to upgrqade)
      – Pickett –> Lloyd or other strongly recommended junior by Jeppa (watch who comes in for S Rowe, posibly L Jones) or grab a Walters (best to side/downgrade non playign rook and get a keeper later tho)
      – (Cash in on Preuss now or during bye rounds)
      – Upgrade Mills to best available

  • downgrade Hampton for Barlow or Marchbank for Yeo? really stuck on this one, can’t do Hampton and Yeo sadly

    This is the first time all year that I’ve been genuinely stuck with no idea for trades. Any help would be very appreciated.

  • Thoughts on Elliot Yeo as a potential trade in this round??

  • RDT.. my team and what to do???? thoughts please..

    BACKS. Adams, laird, Roberton, Marchbank, Otten, Newman, (Stewart, McInnes.)

    MIDS. Mitchell, Merrett, Murphy, Dangerfield, Yeo, Lloyd, Beams, barrett,
    (Rockliff, P/Pepper, Miles.)

    RUCKS. Grundy, Witts. (Strnadica.)

    FWDS. Franklin, Dahlhaus, H/Elliot, Nankervis, S.Reid, Heeney. (Parsons, Balic.)

    1. Marchbank to Hall via DPP and P/Pepper to Greenwood.
    2. Otten to greenwood via DPP and balic to Walters or Wallis…

  • Thoughts on these trades
    Balic-Greenwood & either Mcarthy/Otten-Walters

  • DEF – Adams, Laird, Doch, Simpson, Newman, Marchbank (Hampton, Williamson)
    MID – Merrett, Titch, Danger, Gaff, Hoskin-Elliot, Myers, Barrett, Lloyd (Balic, Fisher)
    RUC – Martin, Nank (Pruess, Cameron)
    FWD – Steele, Macrae, Dahl, Heeney, Roughy, Otten (Black, Butler)

    Thinking of

    Hampton and Butler
    to
    Greenwood and Hannebery

    We’re not playing byes in my league and I’m outside the top 1000 so not too worried about byes at all. Any other suggestions would be appreciated

  • Aaron hall or brad ebert?

    And who should I play and who should I bench between pepper and myers?

    • Ebert and pepper

    • Ebert over Hall. He is a rock solid quiet achiever. Both are excellent PODs.

      Hall has a higher ceiling, but a little more uncomfortably dramatic in his point fluctuations.

      Ebert, for mine, lowest score of 96.

    • Chad mate you let me down, was gonna give you a gig in my forward line!

      but id go Ebert and play Myers on the field, but if geelong bring that same tackling pressure and its a slog then i reckon Pepper might relish it and could be in for a big one ;)

    • Yeah big sorry to everyone! I’d put myself in my own DT, getting that midfield time is showing how much of a superstar I really am! Pick me up in a cutla weeks and you won’t regret it. Better to miss two weeks now then to miss months off with a bigger calf strain

  • The CAPTAINCY LOOPHOLE (I assume) is available this weekend with the partial lockout on Thursday night with the Geelong /Port game.

    Any thoughts on options?

  • My Team:
    DEF: Adams, Docherty, Laird, Marchbank, Otten, Williamson (Stewart, Vickers-Willis)
    MID: Mitchell, Merrett, Dangerfield, Hannebery, Fyfe, Powell-Pepper, Myers, Barrett (Lloyd, Mountford)
    RUCK: Martin, Grundy (Preuss, Cameron)
    FWD: Macrae, Dahlhaus, Steele, Nankervis, Heeney, Hoskin-Elliot (Butler, Polson)

    Cash: $280k

    Thoughts on going Barrett to Gaz/Hall and Butler to Greenwood? Cheers, I feel Barrett has more cash to make is that an issue? Also I’d rather play Barrett than Williamson so instead could go Williamson to Pittard. Seems pretty silly though as I’m getting Gaz/Hall for Barrett anyway

  • Yeo or Barlow in this week?

  • Thoughts on what trades to do this week considering by round structure?

    176k in the bank

    My Team:

    Def: Docherty, Laird, Zak Jones, Marchbank, Newman, Williamson (Hampton, Hibberd)

    Mid: Tom Mitchell, Merrett, Zorko, Adams, Danger, Simpson, Fyfe, D.LLoyd (Pickett, Mountford)

    Ruck: Martin, Grundy (Pruess,Pierce)

    Fwd: Dahlhaus, Franklin, Heeney, Hoskin-Elliot, Otten, H.Greenwood (Eddy, Polson)

    My original thoughts for trades this week were:

    Marchbank to S.Selwood via DPP and Jones to Shuey via DPP

    Any better options?

    Thoughts appreciated!

    • Good to be swinging Adams and Simmo back but surely one of the ins has to be a gun like Gaz.

      (and couldn’t stomach two more ducking weegles no matter the positives, I feel bad enough having Gaff)

    • Not sure on Selwood, he’ll be good to make a bit of cash before the byes but 17 tackle games dont come around that often considering it was 68% of his score.

      I like the Shuey POD, but the bench is very thin considering none of them with the exception of maybe Mountford look like playing this weekend or anytime soon so could have some affect on the
      byes, but hopefully they do (for both our sakes)

  • Trying really hard to not get sucked in by Walters.

    Hampton to Greenwood sells itself. Then Otten to Walters leaves me $309k. But Ablett in is sooo sensible, aargh.

    Second conundrum, Greenwood v Barrett on field?

    • I would go Barrett and play it safe mate, both will score around the same though so cant go wrong with either. i would personally prefer to go ablett instead and get urself a keeper but if u need quick cash, walters isnt a bad idea

    • Nothing wrong with Walters he could make u some cash b4 the byes 309k very handy as well, Vincent could tag ablett. I think it’s worth the punt to make the cash

    • Worth the punt on Walters, if he lets you down then offload at his bye.
      Although three goals on the weekend might trigger Ross the Boss to play him forward again…
      I myself would go Walters and use that extra cash for The Pig after brisbanes bye but hey, im not you.

      Not sure about the second one but I like Barrett

  • Who to bring in out of Yeo, Dusty or Hall?

  • Thoughts on this trade the round:
    Fyfe – Greenwood
    Hampton – Yeo via Otten to backline (DPP)
    this ultimately means that i can keep a R13 bye player (otten) and still upgrade/downgrade.
    Thoughts?? p.s. got 70k in bank and hoping for more downgrade options next week

  • Shaw, docherty, Laird, Hampton, Marchback, otten ( newman, williamson)

    Dangerfield, T. Mitchell, Fyfe, Merrett,Adams, Hannebery, Steele, myers(Balic , mountford)

    Grundy, Sandilands (Cameron, Preuss)

    Dahlhaus, heeney , Roughead,Nankervis, jack Sinclair, Barrett (polson, Kennedy-Harris )
    113k in the bank


    Should I go Hampton to greenwood then Kennedy Harris leaving 34k
    Or
    Hampton to greenwood then Sandilands to Martin leaving 118 k
    Sandi will eventually go but think there could be some coin to be made with Walters.

    Any thoughts appreciated

  • Duncan or Docherty

    • Duncan if you’re considering byes

    • u know what u will get with doch and most likely get him at some stage, but you cant go wrong with either, dunno if duncan will get that many tackles again but u never know

    • I was actually tossing up between these two last week and went with Doch for his consistency, but then i had a closer look after watching Duncan score 160 and noticed he’s just as consistent with 2 90s, 1 106 and the rest 110+!

      For this reason i’d get duncan especially with the bye structure but Doch is as safe as any

  • Should I hold Houston? He’s named as an emergency

    • in the same boat, i will be looking to trade to probably greenwood via some DPP and then upgrading hampton to premo

      • I think I’m going to give him one more week and trade out Otten instead. It would me awesome if he could get some game time through the byes

    • IMO as a power man I dont see Houston coming back into the team unless one of Broadbent, Pittard or Hartlett get injured (or even Darcy Byrne-Jones but he’s more of a lockdown small defender).

      Pittard was out for the first few weeks giving Houston his chance and he did well but theres only so many Quarterback type defenders a team can play, and given the others are more experienced they’ll get first crack.

      I’d look to move him on and hold Otten through the byes, if he holds his spot

  • whos getting Barlow this week?

      • good pick? im split between him and Yeo for my team, thoughts??

        • Just for you Liam, one last time :)

          Yeo averages 106. Pulled down by 81 and a 73 at the MCG. Doesn’t play there again this year. Averages 120+ at Domain. Has 8 Domain games out of the 13 games left including the GF.

          Barlow is a has-been who hasn’t looked fit since he was leg-palmed.

  • Def: Adams, Docherty, Laird, Roberton, Lloyd, Newman (Marchbank, Hibberd)

    Mid: Titch, Merrett, Danger, Treloar, Hampton, SPP, Myers, Barrett (Lloyd, Pickett)

    Rucks: Stef, Nank (Soldo, Cameron)

    Fwd: Yeo, Dahl, Heeney, Steele, WHE, Otten (Black, Eddy)

    1st Trade is Black -> Greenwood leaving me with 287k to play with

    2nd trade im looking at getting rid of hampton but am a bit stuck on who to get in.

    Current bye structure is 13, 5, 11 so considering going:
    Marchbank -> Pittard as D6
    Hampton -> Ebert (or up to 615k, Murphy is highest)
    Marchbank -> Duncan via hampton

    Picking the PODs of Lloyd and Roberton have served me well so far this season (hence the duncan option) and that would help with my bye structure, but so would picking up a GC or Power player.

    Also i didnt catch the Adelaide game on the weekend so am curious about Greenwoods role. Will his spot be at risk with Jenkins and Knight coming back in? Or does Hamptons injury give him some security.

    Any thoughts?

  • NRoo being managed this week with a knee. His bye is rd 11.

    Roughy>Ablett +115k (hold Roo and play Lloyd)
    OR
    NRoo>Ablett+220k
    ?? Thanks.

    • Ablett 110 (possible tag from Vince tho) + 45-80 from Lloyd but keep Roo hoping he comes good
      or
      Ablett 110 (as above) + 60-100 from Roughy

      Personally id trade Roo, virtually a 2 weeker and isnt looking the same Roo we come to know and expect then offload Roughy at round 13

  • Who to field out of Myers, Barrett and Greenwood?

  • Shaw, docherty, Laird, Hampton, Marchback, otten ( newman, williamson)

    Dangerfield, T. Mitchell, Fyfe, Merrett,Adams, Hannebery, Steele, myers(Balic , mountford)

    Grundy, Sandilands (Cameron, Preuss)

    Dahlhaus, heeney , Roughead,Nankervis, jack Sinclair, Barrett (polson, Kennedy-Harris )
    113k in the bank


    Should I go Hampton to greenwood then Kennedy Harris leaving 34k
    Or
    Hampton to greenwood then Sandilands to Martin leaving 118 k
    Sandi will eventually go but think there could be some coin to be made with Walters.

    Any thoughts appreciated

  • Will Sloane get tagged this week?

  • Urgent trade advice!
    Who to pick up out of:
    E.Yeo
    D.Martin
    J.Selwood
    S.Selwood
    ??
    any help would be appreciated :)

  • Ablett or Zerrett? (for RDT). Money not a problem but byes might be. Currently including people who aren’t playing and who I plan on trading out before rd 13, I have 18 playing in rd 13 IF I bring Zerrett in. If I bring Gaz in, I have 19 for that round. I’m currently leaning towards Zerrett anyway as if I bring Gaz over him this week, I won’t bring him in for the rest of the season.

    Cheers fellas

  • Need help with trades this week. Have 31k the bank! Suggestions welcome

    Thinking of going Balic- Greenwood and Otten/Mcarthy/Black – Walters

    What do yous think??

    Doch, Laird, Shaw, Adams, Marchbank, Newman,( EVW, Williamson)

    Danger,Merrett,Fyfe,Tmich,Sloane,Hanners,Myers(Lloyd, Balic, Barrett)

    Martin, Jacobs( King, Cameron)

    Macrae, Buddy, Steele, Nank, Otten McCarthy, (Black, Polson)

    • Definitely lock in Balic to Greenwood, great move

      Walters I’m not convinced on, don’t think he’ll keep it up but if you do grab him

      Your other option is another downgrade and have a heap of coin for the byes. Say Black to Cunico

  • Barlow v Tuohy v Pittard?

  • Can anyone tell me what role Barlow has been playing this year? Run with? Inside mid?

  • Do only 18 scores go towards the bye rounds?

  • trade 1: hampton -> greenwood

    trade 2: balic -> treloar + $0 or barlow + $96k?

  • We’re all comfortable these days that Fantasy is debugged, that we’ll be able to trade tomorrow and that reverse trades’ll work after tonight’s game…?

  • Treloar or Sloane?
