Fix-It Trades – Ep. 184

Fantasy coaches will be assessing their squad after the first weekend either lamenting some bad picks or celebrating the nailed initial selections.

Trading following round one is all about fixing up mistakes.

Early in the week Rage Trades are the go. Flicking a premium that didn’t live up to their asking price can be therapeutic, but isn’t always the best strategy. It is advised to back in your guns. That is, unless the role didn’t look pretty in the case of Tom Rockliff or you’re playing the breakeven game with Zach Merrett, you should hold.

Priority should be based around bringing in cash cows.

If you missed Nick Holman, Tim Kelly, Tom Doedee, Tim English, Sam Murray, Bayley Fritsch, Dom Barry or Jeremy Finlayson, look to bring them in. It might be at the expense of a draftee whose cash generation may look limited or if someone in your squad didn’t play on the weekend or is dropped for this week.

Rage trading is fun, but make sure you look to make your team better for the long-term.

  • Worked out how to fix the AFL fantasy app, all u have to do is delete it and the problem is gone, spent hours on it and killed rd one for me. Not so interested in the game now the app pissed me off of 5 days.

  • I am inclined to agree, I have found tonight that I cannot make a tarde. The app says is showing as 2/2 as if I have made my 2 trades &…I HAVE NOT!!
    Feeling annoyed.

  • If Tom MItchell can as Warnie says can reach 1 million, he will obtain Razorback Boar status….

    • Just needs to average 142 to be priced at $1M. Easy.

    • Thats rediculous.. i remember a few years ago when Gaz was the most expensive player in the game priced at just over 500k & we all thought that was bloody expensive!

  • Was looking at trading Libba to JOM and lychett to Nicnat..2g short ffs.So question is next decent playing below JOM? I was think Tim Kelly to bank 200g

  • Why do I get the feeling that maybe we are being slightly overactive with ditching Rocky at the drop of a hat? U picked him for a reason (I am an owner myself) and I just think he probably deserves 1 more week prove himself. Especially with Gray coming back in – it might be a different team setup this week.

    • I think the reactions are based on the ‘eye test’ as well watching him. Didn’t tackle, looked slow? I didn’t see the game nor do I have him but this seems to be general consensus

      • I do hear all that, however this is based on just 1 game of footy, which happened to be his first game of the year (no preseason games) and first with his new team

        • With those reasons/aspects in hand, why did you and the Traders select him in the first place?

        • Considering we’re yet to even see a quarter of promise I would trade out, I think playing the percentages you’re more likely to come out on top trading him out than keeping him.
          This is of course if you have nothing else pressing and the selection table is friendly

  • Def laird Lloyd Sicily naughton Murray dodder (Finlayson Murphy)
    Mid Titch Ablett Gibbs Cripps Whitfield dow Barry Holman (banfield Bradshaw)
    Ruc Stef Gawn (English cameron)
    Fwd Billings heeney smith christensen fogarty fristch (langdon waterman)
    80 k in bank
    already traded Merrett to Cripps
    any thoughts on what I can do for my second trade

  • One trade remaining.

    Would you trade out Dow, H Clarke, Brayshaw or Banfield? And would you bring in Barry or T Kelly?

    Cheers boys

    • Clark to Kelly. Dow’s run of upcoming games is very good, Brayshaw/ Banfield have shown they can score just the freo mids got dominated.
      Kelly I believe has better JS. Barry will probably gain money quicker since he has started at a lower price

  • I have a few players who i’d love some help with getting out of my team, it just sucks that i cant go back in time aghhh
    Do i trade out:
    -D Fogarty to Fritsch?
    -Rayner to Fritsch/sub in english and bring in Frampton?
    -Naughton to Zuthrie?
    -Rockliff to Coniglio/O’Meara & save cash?
    -Stef Martin to Nic Nat
    -Andy Brayshaw to Tim Kelly?
    -Christensen to Young?
    -Hibbo to Hurley?

    Any help would be great im freaking out a bit. (BTW i scored 2015)

    • Frits and Conglio look best value to me of wot u dont have. Fogarty (poor job security) to Frits and Rocky to Conglio.

  • AR

    We only get two trades a week not 20!!
    Firstly you’ve got to wait for the teams
    Fix the problems that effect your side the most
    NO to the following KEEP Martin/Hibberd sideways are wasted trades
    Rocky a must trade as he was underdone with no preseason
    Fogarty mightn’t make the cut with either/both Walker and Lynch returning
    I think those two are your major problems
    Best of luck

  • this team is bad cause there is no sic dog

  • Looking at going Naughten and Brayshaw to Guthrie and Fogarty freeing me up 97k, chasing the Breakevens. Not too concerned with the rest of my team. Happy to keep Hibberd and Fyfe. Have all the other rookies and a decent score of 2178 and touch over the 4,000 rank. Any thoughts?

  • Want to fix Hibbo & Rocky, both playing different roles than I was banking on

    Bringing in Simpson for Hibbo, but it’s a toss up between the following 4 for Rocky

    1. Acres – DPP, POD and they play North next
    2. Tracca – DPP, more midfield time and they play Lions next
    3. Dahl – DPP, semi POD and should have increased role without Libba
    4. O’Meara – MASSIVELY underpriced and nets me 180k to play with next week

  • Thoughts on downgrading Sam Jacobs to Nic Nat so I can get some more cash?

    • IMO if you have the trade spare, do it Jona…. I am trading Jacobs down to Nic Nat this week too.

      All about growth first few rounds…. Nic Nat has growth at probably nearly the same points as Jacobs + you get cash back to uptrade sooner….

      The risk… is your backing a one game returning ruck, who still has a fitness cloud…. But no risk no reward right ??

  • Thoughts on Rayner to Frampton and Witherden to Simpson? I have all of the main rookies, so unsure of what to do.

  • Missing Barry and English on my team rookie wise, should I aim for those or go for Z.guthrie? My other trade is likely crisp to acres via Sicily

    • I’m going to Guthrie from Naughton purely for B/E and cash generation. Similar price but Guthrie now has a B/E of 4 and Naughton is at 37 which he should still make but….

  • Is there a problem at the moment with podcast addict and this episode not on there? I like to listen to it on the way to work but not on there yet? Cheers.

  • Had the unfortunate R1 scenario of having both Rocky and Merrett. Should I hold onto either of them or trade them out? Don’t want to pull the trigger too early on guys that have excelled in the past…

  • Thoughts on bont, gregson to coniglio, stephenson and hold zerrett

    Or zerrett, bont to gibbs, coniglio
