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

    Cash: $127k

    Thoughts on what to do thinking of going Mountford to Cousins, Williamson/Vickers-Willis to Ryan and I’m not sure on the third trade. Want to leave some cash to get Rocky back in next week.

    • Maybe poslon > cunico if he stays in. This will give you a full team bar the rucks.

      I’m also thinking of the williamson/vickers-willis to ryan. Would you field ryan as d6?

  • Bye structure aside, who would you rather picking up this week – Laird or Yeo?

  • AFL Fantasy

    DEF: Adams, Lloyd, Laird, Pittard, Marchbank, Otten (EDV, Hibberd)
    MID: Titch, Merret, Sloane, Murphy, Dangerfield, Fyfe, Macrae, Myers (Pickett, Miles)
    RUC: Stef, Nank (Preuss, Cameron)
    FWD: Dalhaus, Heeney, WHE, Sinclair, Barrett, Greenwood (Weidman, Cunico)

    Bank: $306k

    Trades: Sinclair > Barlow
    Pickett > Cousins
    EDV/Miles > Playing 150k rookie

    Leave Thoughts and trade ideas

    • Looks good to me. I’m assuming “EDV” is Ed vickers willis, you could trade him to luke ryan (150k DEF) as it seems as he will be getting a game this week.

  • Is anyone thinking of trading Marc Murphy? Hasn’t done spectacular, but has gone down in price, and has the bye.

  • 64k in the bank.
    DEF: Docherty, Adams, Laird, Marchbank, Otten, Williamson (EVW, Stewart)
    MID: Titch, Merrett, Danger, Treloar, Neale, Parker, Miller, Lloyd (Pickett, Mountford)
    RUC: Martin, Grundy (Preuss, Cameron)
    FWD: Dahlhaus, Steele, Heeney, Nankervis, WHE, Greenwood (Butler, Polson)

    These are the trades i’m thinking right now:
    Butler > Cunico, Pickett > Cousins and Parker > Dusty/Hall. Leaving 140k
    Pickett > Cousins, Polson > Cunico and Parker > Dusty/Hall. Leaving 2k

    Leaning towards option 1 as it leaves more cash for me to get rocky asap. Thoughts and other trade ideas would be appreciated, cheers :)

    • From those options, option 1. Polson has been doing well in the ressies and I can see him returning some time soon. Have you thought about Scooter as well? Trading Parker to Scooter could be an option as well if you want… Some quick cash and a decent scorer, may even end up averaging 105 and become a keeper. But if not, option 1.

  • thoughts on aaron hall?

    • Massive possession getter, has learnt to tackle, too un-influential to tag, found form, has had bye and scores well whether Gaz is in or out.
      Got him last week, but he’s still value.

  • Thoughts on trades:
    Black, Polson & Marchbank to Ryan, Cousins and Barlow.

    Is there a better FWD I should be looking at rather than Barlow? I have Macrae, Dahlhaus, Heeney, Wallis, WHE, Greenwood.


  • Who is everyone’s Top 8 Mids?

  • How much is everyone keeping in the kitty for post-bye upgrades?

    • Can’t see much remaining, planning to spend up. This week Adams and Hall, next week Rocky. I’ll be skint.

    • For RDT I’ll virtually have nothing left and same with SC but after the byes, both teams should be finished (maybe Newman still at D6). Not sure about AF.

      • I still have a stack of trades needed to complete my RDT squad despite using trades sparingly. Its amazing how picking say Shaw instead of Docherty and Neale instead of Duncan at the start of the season keeps you on the back foot.

        • If it wasn’t time for byes yet, I’d still have 6 rookies on the ground (tbf, four scored above 78 last week) which isn’t a pretty sight. I started with Stevie J a couple years ago and picked up Monty and Zaha last year and towards the end of both seasons, they were the reasons for a lot of my losses! Still enough time and enough PODs available to make up for it this year I think

  • trade roughy or WHE?

  • need help! J.Selwood, Goodard, or Sidebottom?

  • JKH to Selwood or anybody else under 516k moving Greenwood to Fwd bench or
    Touk to anyone playing this week (thinking Yeo), leaving Greenwood/Myers on field (if byes weren’t happening this week)

  • Thoughts on trading Heppell for Gaff and Yeo? Already have sufficient funds to get in rocky next week and think gaff will have a good second half and yeo is a top 6 forward.

  • Best forward under 450k

  • Can you do emergency loophole, for example put powell-pepper on the bench with the E and have Hannebery on field and Lloyd on benech and swap them over if SPP doesn’t go well or if he does go well put Hannebery on field and take SPP’s score, cheers! If that makes sense

  • AFL Fantasy

    DEF: Adams, Doc, Laird, Marchbank, Stewart, EDV (Houston, Hibberd)
    MID: Titch, Merret, Sloane, Shuey, Dangerfield, Gaff, Barrett, Greenwod (Llolyd, Mountford)
    RUC: Stef, Grundy (Pierce, Cameron)
    FWD: Barlow, Dalhaus, Heeney,Walters, WHE, Otten (Butler, Black)

    Bank: $31k

    Trade ideas: Houston > karpany
    butler > Cousins
    black > Cunico
    this will leave 425k in the bank to get in rocky and probably koby stevens next week
    Leave Thoughts and trade ideas

  • Thoughts on Wines?

  • For RDT, who would you boys rather have at M8 – Fyfe or Scooter? I’m trading in Scooter either way this week (for SPP or Fyfe), and if I trade Fyfe to Scooter he will be my M* till the end of the season, if I trade SPP to Scooter, Fyfe will be my M8 for the season.
    Cheers fellas

    • Probably Fyfe, tho both have downside and at this stage look like averaging about the same

      • I guess if I do keep Fyfe for now, it means that I can take a couple more weeks to decide. Either way though I think I’ll have one trade left after round 15 hahaha. Might as well just go all out and hope for the best with one trade left. Cheers mate

  • Roughy to Yeo with 62k remaining
    PP to S.Selwood with 141k remaining?

  • Black, Barrett and ANB > Cousins, Greenwood and Ebert good trades? 187,000 left over for next week. Ebert a keeper possibly?

  • Barrett to Sloane or Roughead to Yeo + 110k?

    • Just add up the average scores of Yeo+Barrett and Sloane+Roughead.
      Whichever is highest is the trade you make.

      • Cheers, I can’t get Doch next week if I do the Sloane trade whereas I can get Doch if I do the Yeo one. May go with Lloyd instead.

        • I’m praying Doch will have a bad week, and am getting Roberton next week, and Lloyd the week after, when his price bottoms out.

        • Yeah Doch is very pricey atm, I might go Roughy to Sloane and keep Barrett for another couple of weeks over the byes, that will also enable me to have a crack at Doch next week for Marchbank.

  • Hi all,

    Im thinking of starting up an Ultimate footy keeper league and I am looking for any coaches who are really into their Fantasy football.

    If anyone is interested let me know.


  • Def
Adams Laird mills marchbank Stewart Otten (EVW, Houston )

    Dangerfield, tom Mitchell, Fyfe JPK murphy Merrett Gaff Myers (Miles Fisher )

    Grundy Nank ( Cameron preuss )

    Macrae Dahlhaus Yeo Heeney Greenwood Barrett (Black Pickett )

    Hi guys I have 58k in the bank our league is playing the bye rounds. What three changes can I make to improve my team and hold me in good stead for the rest of the year.
    Could someone please help I’m stuck. Suggestions appreciated

    • Try trading the non playing rookies for playing rookies. James Cousins and Jordon Cunico are the go to rookies this week. Also Luke Ryan from Freo might get a call up.

  • Field Powell-Pepper or James Cousins?

  • What does everyone see Scooter averaging?

    • 80-90 Hes tagging Sloane this week so don’t expect 100 from him.

      • Scooter averaged 97 and then 108 in consecutive years where he he played 60% or so of his games as a tagger? I recon if he tags Sloane he can still make 100 based off of that. I can see Scooter averaging 95-105 this season so you might be able to get away with him as M8.

  • Robbie Gray v Scooter?

  • Trades for the week
    Hampton > Scharenberg
    Bowes > Cousins
    Black > Greene

    Leaves me with 13k and 2 possibly 3 dougnuts depending on whether Luke Ryan is named. Thoughts??

  • Any thoughts on Ebert as a POD? Only owned by 3.3%

    Played 10 games, Lowest score of 90 highest score of 149?

    Already had his bye and is sitting at a nice $595k

  • 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, Walters (polson, greenwood)

    Ok so I though i did my trades but didn’t save all the trades for some reason so missed out on cousins

    Will go selwood to scooter
    Williamson to Ryan
    That leaves me 232k
    Any thoughts on the 3rd trade would be great


  • Trade in Tuohy or Barlow
