Cal’s Scale of Hardness – Preliminary Finals

With just two rounds to go and the all important Preliminary Final this week… now is the time to nail the right trade heading into what is going to be the biggest day of your Fantasy life.


Over the last 3 weeks, it has been the West Coast Eagles who are bleeding points, conceding 18 tons. This week, they travel to the land of the Giants and it will be their turn to cash in. Watch for players like Kelly to have a big one this week. North Melbourne and Port have given up 16 and 15 scores in triple figure in the last 3 weeks, ranking them at number 2 and 3 in this category. So hold on to those under-performing Dogs because at home this week, they should return the faith with a solid score.


Avoid players who are playing Geelong, Richmond, St Kilda and Sydney this week as their numbers have been very restrictive in recent weeks. Geelong especially have clamped down the scoring of others in a big way. Treloar, Adams and Sidebottom face them this week and I personally, would avoid trading any of the these guy in for this week.


  • But is it worth getting Dangerfield if you haven’t got him?

  • So hold Dahl?? I was gonna switch him out for Hodge via Sicily DPP….

  • Your Easy Run graphic is missing Hawthorn.

    Don’t forget, Dogs are playing in Ballarat.

    • Haven’t seen the exact numbers, but it’s possible for Melbourne to have an easier run despite only have two light greens.

      Imagine they’re both juuust above dark green status, while Hawks light green is well above it and their dark green only just slots in.

  • Worth bringing Merrett back in given his run home? Or chase a Gibbs or Kelly?

    • Im going Merrett back into my team hes had week off be fired up and is v Suns which i think he has 117 avg on and a Metricon avg of 119 (but he probably not played there much) – but now im interested in Kelly as POD as my opposition has Merrett

  • Hey guys. I’m looking at trading out Josh Thomas and upgrading him to either Wingard or Sidebottom. Who do you think would be best for remainder of year?
    Cheers in advance

  • DEF: Doch Laird Lloyd Adams Ryan Sicily (Witherden Rice)
    MID: Titch Danger Zerrett Dusty Rocky Beams Fyfe J.Thomas (Allison Hibberd)
    RUC: Stef Gawn (Soldo Cameron)
    FWD: Macrae Menegola B.Hill Heeney Dahlhaus Burton (Miles Pickett)

    Thoughts on:
    Luke Ryan to Luke Hodge
    Luke Dahlhaus to Jarryd Roughead

    Team looks like this
    DEF: Doch Laird Lloyd Adams Hodge Sicily (Hibberd Rice)
    MID: Titch Danger Zerrett Dusty Rocky Beams Fyfe Witherden (J.Thomas Allison)
    RUC: Stef Gawn (Soldo Cameron)
    FWD: Macrae Menegola B.Hill Heeney Roughead Burton (Miles Pickett)

  • Who should i trade in: Hurley or Hibberd?

  • Can I please have people’s projected score for wingard this weekend
    Thinking of going dalhaus to wingsard
    Or witherden to Hurley
    Very unsure at this point
    Opinions on this would be awesome
    Cheers guys

  • This makes no sense. Collingwood is one of the hardest teams to score on so why are they rated so easy?
