  • AFL Fantasy
    Cash: $42k

    DEF: Laird, Yeo, Lloyd, Murray, Finlayson (Doedee, Pearce)
    MID: Mitchell, Coniglio, Dangerfield, M.Crouch, Z.Merrett, T.Kelly, B.Jacobs, Coffield (Mutch, Banfield)
    RUC: Gawn, Goldstein (English, Cameron)
    FWD: R.Gray, D.Smith, Mclean, Taranto, Hogan, Fritsch (Ronke, Guelfi)

    Have locked in:
    Banfield > Phillips – leaves $225k for an upgrade.

    Any suggestions?

  • Sicily or Yeo in for Hurley? Sic saves some cash but I think Yeo will give me less headaches for the rest of the season

  • Yeo might tag and sicily is the go to backmen as well as the interceptor! Nice few weeks as well!

  • do i spend all my cash on macrae or go someone like sicily. Trading out billings as my F4. if i went macrae id move spargo forward. Thoughts?

    • I wouldn’t go with Macrae right now. You’d be paying over $200k more for him than Dusty/Adams/Crouch

      • He is scoring about 50 points more though

      • You pay for what you get, in this case that’s for the 50 points over those three mentioned. At the start of the year, everyone was happy to pay 900K for Titch for this reason. By comparison, a 130-averaging Macrae is underpriced.

  • what do we do with sam jacobs?

  • Def: Laird, Simmo, Seedsman, Lloyd, Doedee, Murray, (Coffield, O’Shea)
    Mid: Titch, Neale, Gibbs, Parker, Merrett, Kelly, Brayshaw, Banfield (Mutch, Phillips)
    Ruck: Gawn, Stef (McInerny, Cameron)
    Fwd: McLean, Heeney, Smith, Billings, Bundy, Rioli (Guelfi, Langdon)

    90k in the bank. Unsure what trades to do… Any ideas would be appreciated.

    • get guelfi onto the field & bench rioli for a start. Guelfi is named in the middle. That fixes your forward line. Likewise with phillips. field brayshaw over banfield. personally i’d be looking at trading doedee to cicily somehow mate. maybe get rid of billings while youre at it.

      • haha yeh cheers already moved guelf and phillips on field. I can do Banfield > Clarke and Doedee > Sicily or Yeo. I can even get O’shea/coff to one of them. Trade Doedee or bench him and downgrade next week. Thoughts? Will leave team like this if i trade doedee

        Def: Laird, Simmo, Seedsman, Yeo/Sicily, Lloyd, Murray, (Coffield, O’Shea)
        Mid: Titch, Neale, Gibbs, Parker, Merrett, Kelly, Brayshaw, Phillips (Mutch, Clarke)
        Ruck: Gawn, Stef (McInerny, Cameron)
        Fwd: McLean, Heeney, Smith, Billings, Bundy, Guelfi (Rioli, Langdon)

        • yes up to you which one, I already own sicdawg and really want yeo. to be honest i’d be getting rid of billings. i traded him and kelly to macrae last week and it was the best thing ive done all year. can you trade billings to sicily(fwd) and get doedee to someone decent? if not just field him & …any ideas?

  • DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Sicily, Murrary, Doedee, Cole (Keeffe, Duman)
    MID: Macrae, Mitchell, Fyfe, Coniglio, Neale, Sidebottom, Merrett, Phillips (Banfield, Brayshaw)
    RUC: Gawn, Martin (McInerney, Jones)
    FWD: Heeney, Smith, E Langdon, Fritsch, Guelfi, Clarke (Crowden, Waterman)

    Trades- Holman> Phillips & Naughton (via Keeffe DPP)> Clarke, leaves 342k in the bank. Benching Brayshaw and fielding Phillips. Clarke is also straight onto the field & Guelfi returns. Thoughts?

    Last week I went from 10k to 2k ranking courtesy of new recruit Macrae C & good scores from aaaLllloooyyyddd & Ed Langdon. My team looks even better this week and building a WarneChest for rocky. A$APPPP!

  • Finlayson – Yeo is my first trade
    I have 558K to spend when trading out Jaeger do I:
    Downgrade to Clarke + 418K for next week
    Take a punt on Ah Chee or Hutchings

  • Hell has officially frozen over. Acres to Rocky and Doedee to Sicily.

    Tried a few different trades, but was 4k short of Acres + Kelly to Rocky and Danger, 9k Short of Jacobs to Grundy and Acres to Rocky I think, and 20k short of Simpson and Rocky in for Doedee and Acres.

    Acres out means I’m eating an extra rookie score this week, and planned on Acres out of the side over the byes anyway, so it’s a no loss from that perspective, while also improving my bye structure, which I’ll be under the pump with, and means one extra trade for dodging a donut in round 13/14.

    On top of that, I’ve had enough of the c*nt. Brought him in for Greene r3 in a toss up with Devon, and he’s given me nothing since. Happy to chalk this up as a loss, as I’m just over him.

    Sicily was the ‘best’ I could get to given I didn’t like any of the rookie options. I’m not sure he’ll maintain his recent output, but there’s enough there to risk it for the biscuit. It also gives me a whipping boy, good flexibility with his DPP, and helps my bye structure even further. I’ve got a no d*ckheads policy (more like no Sicily because he’s a d*ckhead policy), but I’m willing to risk it for the biscuit.

    Not sold on Rocky, but as a forward option there’s enough risk/reward, and it won’t destroy me given there’s not a lot of forward options anyway, and again, avoiding the inevitable rookie score this week for Acres, negates the rookie score I eat for next week. Did a bit of research and he was underdone this pre season, so hopefully his early scores and playing forward were an aberration. A no loss trade for me really, had has the potential to be a massive win.

    Still might change it tomorrow if Sauce is out, or I just can’t handle Sicily in my team, but we’ll see how it goes.

    • when you look at your team with sicdawg and rocky it just looks so much better doesn’t it? if rocky plays midfield all the time he will score well…simple

      • Lining up with Murray, Clarke, Kelly and Guelfi as my only rookies is good. No Acres is good. Sicily in my squad is not so good, but the nehatives outweigh the positives all things considered.

        I prefer bonafide, runs on the board premiums for my upgrades, so I’m not totally comfotable given Sicily’s never been this high before, and Rocky has had 1 good game all season, but the potential upside to this could be massive. It’ll make or break the rest of my season.

        • sic dawg will be a top six ave def this year, he just keeps on getting better. he reads the play well and is not going to get tagged ahead of titch.

  • Whats everyone doing with crouch?

    • Crouch is cooked isn’t he? If he’s out long term then trade him out now if you can get to someone you’d want to have.

  • Use a rookie to cover Crouch this week or trade him to rocky and have a rookie cover rocky next week?

    • Probably hold him for the week, dont jump on rocky just yet, see if he can back his performance from last week. If he goes 100+ get him in round 11.

  • Yeo or save cash and go with Sicily? The extra 48k will help in a fortnight to get rocky? Will yeo tag dusty this week?

    • I’m in the same boat, currently going Sicily for the cash

    • I was in the same boat before the Crouch injury and was on Yeo. I think someone will tag Sicily sometime soon as happened last year and he’ll either lose his cool and be out again suspended or be well held to a poor score. As we see too often, once a tag is successfull the other teams follow suit. I feel Yeo is far safer and more consistent.

  • DEF Laird,Simpson,Seedsman,Murray,Doedee,Mirra(Naughton,Pearce)

    RUCKS Gawn,Martin(Flynn,Cameron)

    FWDS McLean,Heeney,Smith,Billings,Christensen,Waterman(Guelfi,Venables)

    Any Ideas Guys?…..Ive 2 ideas this one might not be the best…Billings to Ronke..Merrett to Macrae Field Dow for Mutch…2) Crowden to Clarke Billings to Sicily

    Thoughts Cheers.

  • laird, yeo, seedsman, murray, Finlayson, doedee (pearce, coffield)

    Mitchell, Curnow, conigilo, danger, cripps, Kelly, brayshaw, phillips (banfield, barry)

    gawn, Jacobs (mcinerney, Cameron)

    mclean, heeney, smith, Taranto, spargo, rioli (Rayner, English)

    have 238k in the bank

    was thinking English to ronk, but with buddy back is that going to affect ronk?

    am unsure of Jacobs as well been shit of late and mite be a late out would it be worth moving him for gurndy?

    OR just do 2 downgrade or any other thoughts???

  • DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Ryan, Doedee, Murray, Coffield (Finlayson, Murphy)
    MID: Mitchell, Fyfe, Coniglio, Merrett, Whitfield, JOM, Kelly, Banfield (Spargo, Mutch)
    RUCK: Martin, Gawn (McInerney, Cameron)
    FWD: McLean, Heeney, Smith, Taranto, Billings, Ronke (Giles-Langdon, Guelfi)

    Cash: $172k

    Originally went Billings to Sicily and Banfield to Phillips, leaving $253k for next week. But now with JOM out what should I do??
    Thoughts on trades or other options appreciated.

  • Doedee to Yeo or Finlayson to Simpson?
    Can’t do Finlayson to Yeo. Cheers

  • Sicily or Yeo? Apparently Yeo is going to run with dusty this week, can’t see him having a big score. On the other hand I feel like sicily may get a tag too. Do I save the cash and go with sicily?

  • Macrae or Mitchell Captain this week
