  • Injuries bans my team destroyed 2018 can’t wait

  • Absolutely awful week in Round 13. Thought I’d outscore everyone as I had 18 players but I had Butler’s 20 and Willis’s 22. Scored 1569 but boosted up in rank to 6.7k.

    +3: Newman’s 112 vs. Richmond – thank you, was probably the only highlight this week other than Doch and Heeney.

    OUT Barlow – hated when he broke his leg, was one of the only consistent scoring forward for me.
    Scooter – Traded him in, scored 60 and got injured, traded STRAIGHT BACK out. *sighs deeply in despair*

    IN Zerrett – Finally get this little piggy, I might pay a lot for him but I’ve got a chest for next week as I traded a rookie in as well.
    Beech – Will average roughly around 60, hopefully his job security is all good and what he done wasn’t a one-off thing.

    Def; Doch, Adams, Laird, Newnes, Kolo, Newman (Berg, Ryan)
    Mid; Titch (VC), Zerrett, Rocky, Titch, Danger (C), Dusty, Gaff, SPP (Cousins, Willis)
    Ruc; Stef, Nank (Soldo, Cameron)
    Fwd; Heeney, Steele, Dahl, Barrett, Greenwood, Beech (Butler, Black)

    All I’m hoping is for Steele to be named, I have $264k left. Next weeks trades may involve trading Kolo and Cousins/SPP for Kennedy and Lloyd. Thoughts?

  • Top Ten Mids?

  • Far out. Zak Jones, Scooter and Barlow, not to mention EVW. Steele better be back. No chance of fixing crap Hall trade.

    Pencilled in Scooter to Dusty, Barlow to Gray.

    May have to fix EVW first, hope Balic is straight back in.


    Doc, Adams, Shaw, Laird, Newman, Jones (Ryan, EVW)

    Titch, Rocky, Merrett, Danger, Hall, Murph, Scooter, Barrett (Cousins, Mountford)

    Martin, Nank (Soldo, Cameron)

    Yeo, Roo, Barlow, Heeney, Dahl, Steele (Greenwood, Lloyd)

    • Scooter won’t play, they said he’s set to miss out against Freo. Zak Jones got let off so you’ve been a bit kissed there. Vickers-Willis is gone for a few months sadly, time to trade. Barlow broke his leg, while the extent is unknown he’s going to be out for the rest of the season most probably. Trade.

      Steele should be back, they only omitted him for disciplinary reasons. Would be stupid to leave him in the VFL.

  • Best mid other than Macrae, Heeney and Yeo? Have 700k and thinking of bringing in Roo. Any better suggestions?

  • anyone keeping kelly? looks to be only a week, this is a make or break trade

  • Which pair?
    Trealor and Merrett
    Gibbs and Yeo
    Yeo and Greene
    Ablett and Duncan
    Simpson and Zorko
    JPK and Rocky

  • trel and zerret for me

  • I have josh kelly and Scott Selwood both injured who should I get in and what is josh Kelly’s injurie

    • IMO I wouldn’t trade Kelly, scooter won’t be a top 10 mid, Kelly is a different story, a little sore and may not play this week, but definitely no more than a 1 week injury

      • word is 2 to 3 weeks for kelly with a hip or hamstring.
        no official word on either actual timeframe except scooter himself saying one week.
        until it gets clearer with exact time out, I’d hold both.

  • Zorko with 95k left or Lloyd with 266k left?

  • Tradin out s selwood/ barlow. Hardly any $$ best combos can come up with is priddis neals or whitfeild j steven. Thoughts?

  • is nankervis set to miss a match? if so trade time?

  • Can I have 3 trades this week: Scooter, Barlow, Z Jones…

  • Ultimate footy keeper league, 8 places left for coaches in a 12 team league. Here is the invitation link, anyone who is really keen on their fantasy footy is welcome to join

  • Best Mid to bring in for scooter under 600k besides Josh Kennedy because I already have him

    Thinking between
    Joel Selwood
    Lachie Neale
    Rory Sloane
    Marc Murphy
    Ollie wines

    Thoughts guys? Cheers

    • Murphy. Only gone below 100 twice, and then lowest score 90. I’ve had him all season and been really happy with his consistency. And he has a good record against the Tigers.

  • Ok, so Barlow to Gray, Scooter to Newnes for $148k bank. Swap Newnes and Jones. Play Cousins for one week, then next week downgrade a bench rook, and Jones becomes Zorko.

  • Thought on Wallis at 486k?

  • Thoughts on trades this week! Open to suggestions! Please help with what trades to make this week!!!

    DEF: Laird, Adams, Marchbank, McGovern, B. Smith, Johnson (L.Ryan, Hibberd)
    MID: Titchell, Hall, Cripps, Oliver, Fyfe, Cunnington, Hoskin Elliot, Barret (Cousins, Freeman)
    RUCK: Grundy, Martin (Soldo, Pierce)
    FOR: Stevens, Macrae, Daniher, Sinclair, Greenwood, Beech (C. Brown, H. McKay)

    Please give me suggestions on trades to make please!!

    • You need to spend some of that mill you must have stashed!

      • I have 350k in bank any ideas?

        • Maybe you could think about getting in top premos when they’re underpriced or at least not overpriced or looking like getting cheaper? I suggest you think about getting someone like Dustin Martin this week, maybe by trading Fyfe (or WHE if you want to keep the faith with Fyfe and hope he returns to form).

      • What are you saying stoo lol

    • Why don’t you try making a decision yourself, after all it is YOUR team isn’t it? The only advantage to always asking for help is that you have some one to blame when it all goes pair shaped.

  • Made some bad trade mistakes.
    Traded Barlow in for Balic, And traded out Laird for Lloyd with the intention of bringing Laird back in for Newman this week.Then Barlow and Scooter got injured leaving me in a bad spot.
    Any trade advice?
    My team is

    DEF: Doch, Adams, Newnes Lloyd, Newman, Scharenburg (Williamson, Ryan)

    MID: Titch, Merret, Rocky, Danger, Treloar, Beams, Scooter, SPP (Mountford, Pickett)

    RUC: Martin, McEvoy (Preuss, Cameron)

    FWD: Heeney, Barlow, Macrae, Dalhaus, Barrett, Greenwood (Black, Kennedy-Harris)

    • $17k in bank

    • The only trade advice I can give is (for future trades), dont trade out premos assuming it will be easy to re-trade them one week later…the best laid plans of mice and men.

      • Yes, I think I learnt that the hard way. Perhaps not the best LAIRD plans…

        • Barlow to Greene
          Bench scooter and trade out a rookie for a downgrade, play mount ford instead of scooter is what I’d do

          • scooter will be out for a few and has a be of 82, u can always get him back if u reckon he can make u cash

            u could downgrade preuss then swap barlow for yeo or black to brown barlow to whoever, nroo good value if you have a set of pills considering the points he can score

  • Keep Nankervis or Marchbank? One has to go

  • Brandon Ellis anyone? 486k, last 3 of 110. Potential top 6 Backman over the remaining 10 rounds

    • could be worth a look, seems to be getting a it of it off half back, havnt seen too much of the tigers but he dose use it better than houli, has a be of 58 so could make u some cash, good pod i reckon if you dont have loyd, hes pretty hard to leave out for his price

  • Tom Papley averaging 92 from his last 7 games, 460k forward. Thoughts? Sounds ridiculous but he looks to have a great role now

  • Murphy, Shuey, Ebert, Beams or Ross?

  • Murphy and Wallis
    Steven/Wines and Riewoldt/Macrae?

    • ive been a steven owner for a while and haven’t been happy. Not sure about Wallis and wines could be a good pod so if you like him then he and macrae is the best option to me. If you don’t have lloyd/newnes they’re a decent option to get as you know they are def keepers whereas steven and wines probably won’t be.

  • Scooter and Touk to any premo and Beech
    Or any combo under 948k?

  • Thinking I will go Barlow to Sheed and Scooter to J Lloyd thoughts?

  • any news on josh kelly??

  • Field Scharenberg or T. Stewart

  • I’m stuck on 2 players

    Ross v JPK

    Any ideas

    Ross has been consistent and a good pod

    JPK is the cheaper option and comes home strong

  • Can someone assist?
    I know Scott Selwood has to go, but what next?
    I also need to fix my FWD line and I have limited funds!

    $46,000 in bank.

    DEF: Newnes, Marchbank, Adams, Newman, Roberton, Laird (T Stewart, Cox)

    MID: Gaff, Dangerfield, M Murphy, SPP, Ablett, S Selwood, Titchell, Merrett (C Brown, J Cunico)

    RUC: S Martin, Nankervis (T English, M King)

    FWD: Greenwood, Steele, Trengrove, Dahlhaus, R Burton, M Kennedy (J Beech, Parsons)

    Any advice would be appreciated!

  • Best Barlow replacement in Draft League?

    Touk Miller
    Josh Caddy
    Michael Walters
    Levi Greenwood
    Josh Jenkin

    • I’d have to say Miller, even though he’s spudded it. He’ll take Barlow’s role at Suns… surely.

  • What rank do people think you need to be atm to realistically still be a chance to win the competition?

    The difference between 1st and 500th is 900 points and im thinking that is probably the end of the line for being a chance.

    • Top 20. Teams at the top are complete and generally have luxury trades to either sideways an injured premo or jump on an improving player. I remember a few years ago they interviewed the guy coming 2nd with 3 rounds or so to play and even tho he was about 50 points behind he’d conceded defeat. He finished 2nd.

      • this is slightly untrue, look at the to ranked team as of this moment, the team is completed and i count 3-4 fielded rookies. Some teams that wouldnt have cash stored away and no cash generation on the field will fall behind at this stage of the year. im ranked 2847 and im happy with my fattned cows at this miute but some coaches above may not even have these, eg. newman, barratt, nank, mbank.

  • best premo mid out of zorko, gibbs, treloar, pendles?

  • Who would you get in this week?
    Docherty $703K avg 121.3 breakeven 108
    Zorko $680K avg 122.2 breakeven 97
    Gibbs $678K avg 117.8 breakeven 69
    Dusty $655K avg 115.3 breakeven 104
    Sidebottom $618K avg 108.3 breakeven 81

  • Current thoughts for Barlow / Scooter conundrums – have $99K spare

    1) Jake Lloyd + Yeo = keeps DPP links FWD and DEF
    2) Whitfield + Yeo = better Mid Average
    3) Treloar + Lloyd = loses DPP FWD, weakens FWD line (GWS Lloyd / Butler on ground)

    Currently leaning towards #1

  • Who for M8- Neale or Wines?

  • JPK or Ross

    Stuck between who to chose

  • Whitfield or Steven?

  • Roo and Steven
    Papley and Treloar?

  • is yeo an option for barlow
