Team Sheets – Round Six

Welcome back for Team Sheets here in round six, where will will run through the most relevant fantasy INs and OUTs. With no Thursday night footy and the last game of this round being played on Sunday, we have a standard week again! This week we have a few relevant cash cows coming in at a great time to move on some of those that may have reached their break evens or are missing with injuries.

Kicking off with the big INs of the round, we start with James Worpel (Mid $182,000), affectionately known as ‘worpedo’ who comes in for the Hawks. Worpel has earned his debut on the back of some solid VFL form and is a contested ball winner. Unfortunately for Stefan Martin owners, Oscar McInerney (Ruck $170,000) is also set to debut this week. The 204cm listed Lions big man looks set to spend a majority of time up forward, with stints chopping out for Stef in the ruck. Our third debutant for this week is actually the Giants first graduate from their Academy to join senior ranks, Nicholas Shipley (Mid $170,000). Shipley provides another option for a downgrade, with many coaches now looking to move on some almost maxed out cash cows. Charlie Spargo (Fwd/Mid $214,000) and Jack Petruccelle (Fwd/Mid $196,000) also make their debuts for the Demons and Eagles respectively.

NEAFL specialist Michael Barlow (Mid/Fwd $667,000) comes in for his first game of the season following some impressive outings in the twos. The Crows welcome back midfield dynamo Matt Crouch (Mid $721,000) who returns from his layoff with injury. Crouch has been solely missed in the Crows engine room already missing brother Brad and Rory Sloane. Zac Langdon (Fwd $220,000) returns to the senior lineup this week after missing the past three games with a hand injury. Dom Barry (Mid $275,000) returns this week for the Power following his round four omission.

James Sicily will serve his one match suspension this week.

Leading the key OUTs for our round six team sheets is resident bad boy James Sicily (Def/Fwd $554,000) who misses this week through suspension following a sicily-esque stomp on Shaun Atley in the Hawks loss to the Roos. Joining Sicily on the sidelines is popular forward selection, Christian Petracca (Fwd/Mid $550,000). Petracca features in nearly a quarter of teams at this point in the season and will miss this week. The Swans will require a fair restructure this week with the enigmatic Lance Franklin (Fwd $698,000) and Dan Hannebery (Mid $571,000) both set to miss.

Thankfully for coaches this week, we haven’t lost too many fantasy relevant players to injury or suspension, whilst managing to gain a nice crop of new cash cows to consider! Coaches here in Perth should come down to the live show tonight, doors opening at 7pm and the show starting at 8pm AWST. As always, good luck to everyone this week, feel free to send through any questions you may on twitter @JelmsDT or start up discussion in the forum below!


  • Any risk of Stef being a late out with MCInerney coming in?

  • Who goes first?

    O’Shea BE 28
    Gowers BE 34

    • Nothing really in it, I would base it on who you are bringing in and where they fit position wise and if the trade involves dpp action how does your team look at the end of it bench cover wise.

    • I’d be moving on O’Shea first, but both are nearing the end of their roles as cash cows.

    • Think can got injured so would trade him first

  • Holman for Zerret or trade Petracca?

    • Really comes down to how confident you are in your bench covering Petracca or who you could bring in for him! That said, it looks like the time is right to jump on Zach.

    • Wouldn’t trade holmen yet bit of coin still to be made an it only sounds like a week for petracca so would hold both an try another way to get merrit

      • Holding until maturity wastes cash. Holman will make less per week now than fresh cows. Having said that he’ll make more than anyone not playing or losing value, so, unless you think Petracca will be a keeper, it’s time for Petracca to go.

  • Who do I trade out first, Naughton, Finlayson or L Murphy?

  • Carnage again. Stretching necks and moving players around to dodge doughnuts. Hope no late out’s for my team. Positive is mclnerney being named. Hopefully makes a few bucks. I guess most ppl have him on ruck bench seeing as thou he was a emergency from round 1…… Who to field out of poholke or Rayner. Yep I’m stretching to field 22 and this is what I’m left with lol.

  • Curnow, Macrae or Danger?

    • You’d have to back Danger to average more over the season, Macrae is looking good too though.

      • I’ve had Macrae every year on account of him being a FWD and most years he shat me at one point or another. Don’t think you can justify bringing him in as a straight MID… or at least I can’t.

    • Think cornow is the real deal contested ball winner tackles an runs hard to space McCrae is good form think teams might start putting some time into him. Danger playing forward good hurt his scoring a little I’d probably pick McCrae but cornow would be a great pick at his price.

  • Who should i trade and who should i keep on my bench this week?: Franklin vs Petracca

    • Talk of Buddy out for a month.

      • You sure its a month, I read somewhere 1 week. Don’t have him in fantasy but would mean I have a decision to make in SC

        • Pretty sure I read a new article over the last day or so that said 3-4, just had a look but can’t find it. The other reports I’ve seen suggest 1 week possibly longer.

          He hadn’t been able to train during the week sonce round 1, and apparently he did it even worse this weekend, so I doubt 1 week off is going to fix it. If I had Buddy and had to bet my house on it, I’d be trading.

          Don’t take my word for gospel though, I can’t find the article so I’m not 100% sure.

    • Franklin’s injury probably means he could be out longer than Petracca.

  • Trying to trade out fritsch for mcinerny via english but website or app aint lettin me… anyone having this problem?

  • Upgrade Holman or Kelly?

  • Lots of potential fresh meat this weekend.
    How many of them actually play, and if they have real JS is the question.
    Worpel may be the pick of them. Also interesting to see how Barlow goes.

    • Problem is they’re mostly mids, bit I’m upgrading my mid player and downgrading my forward :(

  • Is this a silly move? Nank to McInerney fielding English in the ruck. Next week I’ll be able to downgrade a rook and upgrade another forward rookie to Grundy switching him with English. I have concerns for Nank; has yet to ton up, no easy matchups in the near future, Soldo potentially coming in and the short break for him.

    • “next week I will make this trade”, the most famous last words in fantasy football

    • I like it, Nank isn’t a keeper and like you say worst case play English again.

    • I’ve got the same situation and am doing the same. Gives me enough cash to bring in Gray and Merrett next week. I’ll keep English R2 until he has a bad day. Having said that I don’t think Nank has been shocking: decent start to the year and has allowed me to assess the other ruck options rather than setting/forgetting from R1. He was always going to spud up against the best ruckmen.

  • Wtf should I do with buddy… will he be out for more than the one week?

  • Hey Everyone, need ideas on what trades I should do this week, got 222k in bank

    Suggestions welcome

    Laird, Lloyd, Hibbard, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray(Pearce,Mira)

    Titch, Gibbs, Jelwood, Neale, Merrett, Holman, Kelley, Coffield( Banfield, Bradshaw)

    Gawn, Stef

    Billings, Heeney, McLean, Fritsch, waterman, Crowden( Gowers, Rayner)

  • Which option?

    B. Fritsch -> Guelfi
    N. Holmsn -> Z. Merrett

    Option 2
    Venables -> Guelfi
    Christensen -> S. Menegola

    Venables -> M Flynn Switch English to FWD
    N. Holman -> Z. Merrett

    RUCK: Martin, Gawn (English, Cameron)
    FWD: Billings, Heeney, Smith, Taranto, Christensen, Guelifi (Giles-Langdon, Crowden)

    Cash: $288k
    Thoughts on trade options appreciated.

    • At least give people your thoughts about which ones you’re looking at trading, otherwise we’re pretty much playing your team for you.

  • Help please!
    What’s best option
    1 Buddy+Tkelly out Fyfe +Gray
    2 Brayshaw+Rayner out Mcinerney and Gray in,English on field hold Buddy
    3Buddy+Brayshaw out Gray and Zerrett in

    1+3 I can’t get English on field but don’t hold Buddy but he’s my best fwd so probably should hold…ffs I dunno!

  • Which Option
    1.T.Kelly & Petracca out for Zerret & Mclean
    2. Holman & Waterman out for Zerret & McInerney (English forward)

  • which debutant has the highest ceiling?

  • Will Curnow keep this up all year and average 110+??

  • Which premo forward to get in for Greene? Can afford any and already own Heeney, Billings and Taranto.
    Gray seemed an obvious choice but a looming Jacobs tag has me cautious.

    • Id be getting Gray.
      Consider Walter’s McLean Menegola

    • Gray seems to be dominating but with Ryder out atm, id look at Westhoff. Otherwise jump on Devon Smith or Hogan

  • Sideways Petracca to Deledio or go up to Mclean/Gray/Menegola – Lids saves me about 100k

    • Lids is high risk but if he stays on the park could push for a top 6 forward IMO in saying that I’d pass

  • Options.

    1) Billings & Whitfield to Gray & Zerrett
    2) Venebles & Billings/Whitfield to McInerney & Zerrett (Puts English on my field)

    If option 2 do I dump Billings or Whitfield?

  • who will average more – Menegola or Gray or Mclean? who is a better pick

    • Gray or McLean, depends if you care about Ports bye.

    • Grey will be if he stays in the middle McLean (consistent) an menegola(high ceiling) will average about the same IMO

      • I would try get all three, I rate the top 7-8 fwds as follows:

        Franklin (if fit), Heeney, Gray, McLean, Walters, Menegola, Smith – who knows if Billings will come good. He is presently on my long list to shed

  • Gday lads, need some help.

    Dow > Shipley or Worpel

    And then either

    Fritch > Gray
    Brayshaw/Barry > seedsman


    • Not great job security for worpel an Shipley id wait a week if u can if not I’d go worpel spargo is another to keep an eye on if he gets a run. Barry named this week so hold him

    • I would get Higgins, though if you are set on it, get Gray, as long as your are comfortable that if he gets Jacobs he will struggle to score well this week

  • Zerrett or Seedsman?

    Either way will be in the mids. Have I missed the boat on Seedsman? I think maybe Zerrett is too good to pass up..?

    • Zerrit why u can but seedsmen a great pick as well

    • Definitely Zerret, will score more points so get him in first. Also think Seedsmans scoring will be affected by crouch coming back in and eventually sloane.

  • Curnow vs Fyfe vs Macrae??
    Leaning towards Fyfe currently

    • Fyfe looks good at the moment. Curnow for pod, and same with Madras.

      Maybe choose the one with the best bye round status.

  • Trade out Kelly (BE 53 but avg 81) or Holman (BE 44 average 67). Whoever I don’t trade is on the field.

    I can use either to reach Zerrett, and can’t see any reason to trade Kelly when has averaging so high, whilst Holman has had a shocker or two, but Holman has a slightly higher potential to earn more as a cash cow with a lower value and slightly lower BE.

    • I’d say Holman, would prefer Kelly on field and you’ll probably be trading him out soon anyway.

  • Stephenson, Banfield, Guelfi, Crowden.

    Can play 2 on the field.

  • merret, menegola or gray

  • Hey guys which option
    Finlayson and Jacobs (nm) for shipley and merrett
    Jacobs (nm) and christensen for shipley and gray

  • rekn Poholke holds a regular spot?

  • Fritsch > McInerney, puts English in my fwd line
    A. Brayshaw > Zerrett
    Brayshaw has BE of 31, but if he scores 40’s again won’t go up by that much

  • Laird, Bonner, Lloyd, Murray, Coffield, Finlayson (Dodee and Mirra)

    Mitchell, Macrae, Congilio, Fyfe, Martin, A Brayshaw (freo), Kelly, Holeman (Dow, Barry)

    Gawn, Martin

    Billings, Smith, Christensen,Heeney, Fritch, Guelifi (Rat and Waterman)

    Gday Lads. Above is my team, and wondering what options I should take.

    $233K in the bank.

    1. Christensen > Tim English (284K in bank) and then go Holeman/Brayshaw to Seedsman/Zerrett or Bonner to Seedsman/Kade Simpson

    2. Dow > Shipley or Worpel and then go Holeman, Brayshaw or Barry to Seedsman/Zerrett or Bonner to Seedsman/Kade Simpson.

    3. Any of your suggestions.

    Cheers guys.

  • Who goes between Gowers or Petracca?

    Gowers > Guelfi and no bench cover in the mid need to field crowden but $$$ for next week
