  • Repost.

    Thoughts appreciated.

    Jelwood and Beams
    Zorko and Hibberd (nth) , fielding mountford

  • Need a fwd downgrade, Josh Battle Debut’s this weekend

  • Looking at bringing in Doc this week, Just unsure on which player to trade out, Tuohy or Hibberd? Leaning toward Tuohy simply because of the higher breakeven, although he does have, this year, a higher ceiling than Hibbo. Any thoughts on which player to trade?

  • Who should I cull out of Stef and Nank so i can then put Darcy on the field and upgrade Jones to Zorko??

    • Nank first I reckon. He is no chance of being a top 6 forward or top 2 ruck. Schache should be back this week for Brisbane, Hopefully Archie makes way for him.

    • Not sure I agree with David C. Nank is only about 10 points per game off being a top 6 fwd and he could be extremely useful as temporary ruck back up.

  • Def: Doc, Adams, Laird, Lloyd, Newnes & Newman(Ryan & T.Stewart)
    Mids: Gibbs, Titch, Danger, Zerrett, Pendleburry, Treloar, Rocky & Witherdan(Mountford & Willis)
    Rucks: Grundy & Darcy(King & Pierce)
    Forw: Macrae, Heeny, Menegola, Dahlhaus, Nank & Roughhead(Greenwood & Ainsworth)
    Cash: $67K
    Ranking in the late 100’s

    1. Thinking Roughhead to $150K rook and play Greenwood on the ground
    2. Stewart to Zorko via DPP which would leave me with Witherdan as an EMG def and Mountford as my EMG Mid

    Trying to get into the top 100 but really difficult.

    • You won’t lose points offloading Roughead and having Greenwood on the field, but you will, as you intend, make money for upgrading.

      And if the Roughie> $150k rookie enables the Stewart > Zorko trade, you will have achieved a significant team improvement.

      Solid emergencies, too.

      Great trades and will help your <100 campaign for a beanie!

  • High chances Blakely will get DPP back or not?

    • Well, his heat maps since the last DPP allocation provide a decent case, I would think. He has done some great defensive work.

      Still, from past experience there seems to be a certain DPP allocation, so he will be competing not just with his own relative field position, but also the intensity and significance of other player’s relative field positions. I can’t read that just from the heat maps.

      If he is worth inclusion as a MID, then he would be much more worthy as a DPP. I traded him out when he had the team bye (not the individually forced bye), and would be very interested in him again (along with a stack of others, of course) if he was a DPP.

    • I hope so! have him in draft

  • These are my current Rucks:

    Stefan Martin ($521k av. 102) Todd Goldstein ($505k av.91.7) Braydon Preuss ($316k av. 79.3)
    and Darcy Cameron DPP

    I want to bring Darcy in with a view to value add and get Kruezer and/or Gawn for the finals (depending on form and of whomever remains of Goldy and Martin).

    Should I just do a straight swap of Preuss for Darcy this week, or directly ditch one of Martin or Goldstein, anticipating some cash increase from Preuss, given Scott has spoken this week of wanting to bring in Preuss very soon?

  • 1. Lambert
    2. Walters
    3. Greene

    pick one

  • Menegola or K Stevens?

  • Hmmm, thoughts? Marc Murphy or Scott Selwood?

  • DEF: Docherty, Adams, Newnes, Jake Lloyed, Nic Newman, Luke Ryan, (Brennan Cox, Matthew Scharenberg)

    MID: T.Mitchell, DAngerfield, Merrett, Rockliff, Josh Kelly, Pendles, Murphy, Oliver (Witherdon, Cousins)

    RUC: Goldstein, Jacobs

    FWD: Yeo, Franklin, Bradley Hill, Sheed, Stewart, Daniel Lloyed, Bolton Callum Brown

    Have $177k in bank. Thinking of trading Rocky to Zorko. possibly Cousins to Hibberd or find a small downgrade for rocky to get Daniel lloyed to Heeny or the like?

    Thoughts? :)

    • I don’t think trading rocky off is the best of ideas, he has been reading fwd a lot but when you get rid of him that’s when he’ll pull out a 150.

      • hahaha yeh i know that’s how he works hey! the week i got him in he stopped his 150 streak.

        thinking now Scharenberg down to daniel nelson and Daniel Lloyed up to Koby Stevens?

  • Def: Doc, Adams, Laird, Lloyd, Newman, Witherden, (Ryan, Willis)

    Mid: Titch, Danger, Zerret, Danger, Kelly, Martin, Gaff, Greenwood, (Mountford, Cousins)

    Ruc: Grundy, Stef, (Darcy, Lewis)

    Fwd: Heeney, Yeo, Menegola, Steele, Dahlhaus, Thomas, (Beech, Pickett)

    28k in the bank

    Potential trades are Mountford down to Zarhaar (Pickett dpp) and Dahlhaus to Seb Ross (Greenwood dpp).
    Any opinions or other potential trades?

  • DEF: Docherty, Adams, Simpson, Laird, Lloyd, Witherden (Ryan, Willis)
    MID: Mitchell, Dangerfield, Merrett, Kennedy, Rockliff, Whitfield, Shuey, Powell-Pepper (Mountford, Cousins)
    RUC: Grundy, Martin (King, Cameron)
    FWD: Macrae, Heeney, Menegola, Sheed, Dahlhaus, Parsons (Cox, Brown)
    109k In the bank

    I was thinking Cox to Kennedy-Harris… but after that Im out of ideas… any suggestions?

  • Pepper, witherden or myers to start?

  • Rucking Serious

    DEF: Docherty, Adams, Laird, Newnes, Newman, Witherden (Ryan, Hibberd)
    MID: Titchell, Dangerfield, Zerrett, Gaff, Shuey, Wines, Oliver, Z.Jones (Mountford, McKenzie)
    RUC: Grundy, Martin (English, Cameron)
    FWD: Yeo, Macare, Menegola, Heeney,Riewoldt, Dahlhaus (Polson, Greenwood)

    2k remaining

    Original plan was Martin & Jones > Darcy & Zorko.

    Now that Archie is out. Should I bite the bullet and go Jones & Greenwood > Zorko & Zurhaar?

    Any feedback appreciated.
