  • Need help with trades this week. Have 438k in the bank!

    Thinking of going Fyfe- Rocky and Otten- JPK via Barrett. What do yous guys think?

    Doch, Laird, Shaw, Adams, Newman Scharenberg,( EVW, Ryan)

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

    Martin, Jacobs( King, Cameron)

    Macrae, Buddy, Steele, Nank, Otten, Greenwood(Polson, Cunico)

    • Great trades liam. For your 3rd trade I’d look at trading polson or cunico, hopefully there’s a fresh rookie or two this week. Your team looks to be in a great position.

      • Cheers Matt, let’s just hope there are a few fresh rookies to choose from.

  • Trade out Myers or WHE?

  • Def: Adams, laird, Docherty, roberton, berg, Ryan (Stewart, evw)
    Mid: danger, merrett, neale, titch, Sloane, scooter, cousins, Barrett z jones (m hibberd)
    Ruc: Grundy, nank(soldo, Cameron)
    Fwd: macrae, Dahl, yeo, Steele, whe, Greenwood, (black, eddy)
    400k left.
    R13 is a problem. If I go Stewart, soldo & eddy> rocky, buzza & jkh, if he plays, then ill be able to field 18 on the pitch next week if one of those cats replaces hawk. If not then ill cop a Donut. Thoughts? I’ve got other options but I like this one the best at the moment.

    • Good trades mate, great use of the 400k. I’m sure JKH will get a game, 47 touches

      • Thanks. Does Geelong have any other full forwards? Scott will probably play Stanley.knowing my luck

        • Probably only Black or Stanley to come in mate, hopefully black for your sake haha

      • Trengove, former captain of the club, routinely bashes out 40-possession games and can’t get a run. Not sure what they’re doing at Melbourne, but high possession counts do not equal games in the firsts.

  • Defence: Docherty, Adams, Laird, Marchbank, Otten, Williamson (EVW, Stewart)
    Mids: Titch, Merrett, Danger, Treloar, Hall, Neale, WHE, Lloyd (Cousins, Mountford)
    Ruck: Martin, Grundy (Cameron, McInerney)
    Forwards: Dahlhaus, Steele, Heeney, Nankervis, Miller, Greenwood (Butler, Polson)

    I have 170k to use…
    Have to trade Otten, Neale, WHE, Butler, Polson and Mountford over the next couple weeks. 1 I’m happy with is otten > newnes. Not sure on the other two, ideas would be a big help. ta

    • Mountford & butler> c brown & jkh/willsmore etc. Then upgrade whe nextweek on his bye. C brown is essentially replacing him. Same team, similar role etc etc and $$$

  • RDT…
    Backs. Adams, Docherty, Laird, Roberton, Otten, Newman, (McGrath, Stewart.)

    Mids. Mitchell, Treloar, Hall, Rockliff, J.Lloyd, P/Pepper, Greenwood, D.Lloyd.
    (Dangerfield, J. Selwood, S. Selwood)

    Rucks. Grundy, Nankervis. (Pruess.)

    Fwds. Dahlhaus, Hoskin-Elliot Roughead, Heeney, Taranto, Bolton. (Butler, Eddy.)
    $36,000 left in the bank, 14 trades…thoughts please…

    1. Eddy, Hoskin-Elliot and Otten /Cousins, Ainsworth,Gibbs.
    2. Otten, Hoskin-Elliot and Taranto / Cousins, Franklin, Wingard.
    3. Otten, Hoskin-Elliot and Roughead / Cousins, Wingard, JPK / Ebert..

  • this also gives me teams for the last 2 byes…as it nears completion…

  • Thoughts on Bont to Rocky if it then allows me to get Newnes via dpp and means i don’t have to field luke ryan at d6?

    • terrible trade, bont just had his bye and is averaging over 100, why would you trade? surely you’ve got an underperforming player to trade for rocky

      • It would be Otten, Bont and WHE to Rocky, Newnes and a rookie. Can get rocky via traditional downgrade and upgrade, but would mean overload of r13 bye players, which i am trying to reduce at the moment.

  • Any possible solutions/suggestions to include Rockcliff in the three trades for this week.
    Trading out Goldstein, Otten, & Turner for 2 midfielders and 1 forward.
    Can manage Ablett $671000, Wines $531000 and Wallis 4487000 with $4000 left over in bank?

  • Thoughts on Daniel McKenzie? Averaged 89 from his two games so far this season, heavily underpriced at $351k, already finished his bye, worth trading in?

    • Had my eye on him also but lots of uncertainty and awkward price. If he is a flash in the pan it’s a waste of a trade. Maybe after this round if he scores ok, but is he a keeper?

  • Looking for another point of view with trades. My current team is

    Adams, Laird, Shaw, Jones, Newman Marchbank (williamson, Ryan)
    Danger,Merrett,Tmich,Hall, watson, ANB, WHE (Myers, Cousins)
    Martin Nank (King, Cameron)
    Dalh, Steele, Heeney, Otten, Roughy, Taranto (Parson JKH)

    Approx 520k in the bank.

    Was going to do Doc for Laird as he will lose more money than Shaw and then pick back up for Jones or marchbank post bye. This leaves me 460k

    Looking at league wins as overall I’m out of the race at 20k +

    Just looking at which two R13 players are best to go this week? And then 3 next week
    Looking at getting Rocky, Dusty/ablett, Yeo and another top fwd with the 5 remaining trades over these 2 weeks.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

  • Hi guys, have 47k in bank and still have not decided my 3 trades, have luxury of 22 players possibly playing this week but only 16 possible next week, need help please.

    Adams, doc, roberton, laird, Newman, Marchbank (Stewart, Ryan)
    Titch, zerrett, s Selwood, danger, gaff, m crouch, greenwood, cousins (Myers, fisher)
    Martin, witts (preuss, Cameron)
    Dahl, Heeney, Steele, Nank, WHE, roughy (Otten, butler)

  • DEF: Adams, Laird, Lloyd, Heater, Newman, Otten (Schranberg, Stewart)
    MID: Titch, Danger, Sloane, Treloar, Fyfe, Wines, Cousins, Taranto (Myers, Greenwood)
    RUCK: Stef, Nank (Cameron, Soldo)
    FWD: Barlow, Buddy, Macrae, Dahl, Heeney, Rough (Fisher, Polson)

    35k in the bank

    Only got 13 for next week atm so need to offload some round 13 bye players. All thoughts appreciated.

  • Best mid under 680k to get for picken ?

  • DEF: Adams, Laird, Docherty, Shaw, Williamson, Otten (Ryan, Stewart)
    MID: Titch, Danger, Merrett, Gaff, Hall, Ebert, WHE, Myers(Fisher,Cousins )
    RUCK: Stef, Nank (Pierce, Soldo)
    FWD: Dahlhaus, Barlow, Steele, Heeney, Roughy, Greenwood (JKH, Balic)

    Which option?

    1) WHE > JPK, Otten > Roberton & Roughy > 230k or less forward

    2) WHE > JPK, Gaff > Rocky & Otten > 300k defender or less

  • Any chance of a Callum Brown or Kayle Kirby debut to replace Elliot this week?

  • Def:Adams, Laird, Newman, Marchbank, Jones, Otten (Hibberd, Ryan)
    Mid: Mitchell, Merrett, Dangerfield, J Kelly, S Selwood, Hall, Hanners, Watson (Pickett, Lloyd)
    Ruck: Witts, McEvoy
    Forward: Macrae, Dalhaus, Barlow, Hoskin Elliot, Barrett, Parsons

    500k in the bank, so far i’ve went

    Otten> Newnes
    Watson> Rockcliff
    Hoskin> Heeney


  • Is it worth going WHE up to Chad WIngard?

  • Thoughts on JPK average for the remaining 12 rounds?

  • Simpson laird Newman Ryan tuohy McGrath mhibberd mohr

    Fyfe sitchell Matt crouch Heppell Watson cousins Lloyd gaff Murphy freeman

    McEvoy Goldstein king pierce

    Steele franklin caddy Boyd greenwood WHE pickett Cameron
    Teams a mess I’m shit at this
    3 possible trades I can make 438 k in bank
    Thoughts very much appreciated

  • Anyone considering Preuss to English?

    • I am considering Preuss out but for Buzza or Darcy. (see Jeppa article for his thoughts too).
      English unlikely to play much and is more pricey than those too.
      Preuss on bye so hoping to keep this week if possible, see if he is named next week and if not then offload then.

      • Yeah. Good comment. Darcy is a better prospect. I don’t know much about Buzza. I would have thought that he’d be way down the list for ruck options at Geelong (if Blics is counted as a ruck….).

        I’d like to keep Preuss, but he’s too often just the emergency. My ruck combo for the year has been Grundy, Witts (Preuss + Cameron), with Nankervis in the FWDs. Nank could cover Grundy next week, but just looking for some cash generation for a splurge next week.

  • Hold harbrow?

  • For AF. $11K in bank at mo.

    Option 1
    Otten > Hibberd (non playing rookie back in …)
    WHE > JPK
    Preuss > English or Darcy if named
    bank $234K for next round to move on Myers / Lloyd / Cousins / SPP

    Option 2 (loses DPP links in FWD/Mid for this round), plus it trades out 3 playing players)
    Otten > Hibberd
    WHE > JPK
    Miller > Newnes
    Banks $46K for next round

  • Need help guys
    Marchbank > Newnes
    Otten > C. Brown
    Roughead > Barlow
    EVW > Newnes
    Otten > Willsmore
    Roughead > C. Brown

    which leaves me with 298k next week to get Dusty or Rocky. Although I want to keep marchbank and get rid of EVW.

  • Which option?
    1) WHE > JPK, Otten > Roberton & Roughy > 230k or less forward
    2) WHE > JPK, Gaff > Rocky & Otten > 300k defender or less

  • brown or beech?

  • Thoughts on keeping llyod as cap? 122 is solid enough so im thinking ill keep him

  • Beech or JKH? Not worried about byes.
