  • Into the next round for finals and need help with a trade.

    I could either go

    Sidebottom > Oliver

    Or

    Trade Rockliff out (who my opponent has) and trade in Macrae.

    Help would be appreciated. Im thinking of swapping out Sidey to Oliver.

    • I’d probably lean towards second option due to fact that macrae has carlton next round and sidey still has the ability to go big on his day in comparison to rocky on current form, especially with rocky having not the greatest TOG.

      • I’m with Tom on this one

      • GF this week for my league.. going to get rid of Neale and can bring in anyone.. likely to be out of Cripps Oliver or Matt Crouch..

        Oliver having West Coast worries me slightly
        Cripps should go big with a nice match up though wasn’t the case today
        Matt Crouch has the Roos at home..

        Or another option? Don’t have Kelly but might get the Sydney tag which also worries me..

        Thoughts?

        • Cripps. Didn’t go so well against Freo as he was playing away. Has been scoring much better at home this season as opposed to when the Blues travel

  • Hey everyone,
    Got 288k up my sleeve and will be upgrading e.curnow and phillips out of midfield. Do people think I should upgrade one of them to cripps/oliver and then the other to someone like duncan, pendlebury selwood.

    OR

    don’t go for one of those top two guys and chase two POD’s such as out of Ablett, Beams, Ross even.

    Cheers

    • I would probably go for Ablett (Albeit if he isnt rested) and either Cripps/Oliver. If you can’t afford Cripps/Oliver. Go for Macrae

  • Hey who is the best sixth defender. I think the top 5 are locked in, but I’m finding Simpson too flaky… is it:
    Witherden $654k
    Crisp $535k
    McDonald $596k
    … someone else…

    • Either T.McDonald or Witherden.

    • If you want a real outside the box bet, Brodie Smith is back and pumped out a ton this week. Mid $500k and could be a real POD pick for a rankings move.

      Otherwise, I’d say McDonald if you’re looking consistency or Witherden if you want to bet on a big score to win the Prelim. Problem with Witho though is that he’ll play WCE in the last rd, kind of a tough match up

  • Hey, want to trade out Hurn, but don’t know who to bring in.

    DEF:
    Whitfield + $10K

    FWD:
    Menegola + $102K
    Mundy + $146K

    MID:
    Macrae +$56K
    Ross + $46K

    Thanks for the help

  • Dusty to Pendles/ Duncan
    Wingard to Menegola

    V

    Dusty to Ablett
    Westhoff to Menegola?

  • Farrell > Rookie Defender
    Lienert > Crisp

    Or

    Farrell > Rookie Defender
    Shuey > Cripps/Oliver

  • O’Riordan > Nash
    Phillips > Beams/Ablett

    or

    O’Riordan > 170k defender
    Phillips > Ross

    Any other suggestions welcome.

  • Phillips –> Beams and Parker –> Cogs good trades? Can’t afford the big dogs in Oliver or Cripps.

  • DEF: yeo, lloyd, lienert, witho, Weller, Hurn (Ridley, appleby)
    MID: Polec, titch, cripps, fritsch, Parker, coniglio, menegola, ross (constable, mutch)
    RUC: Jacobs, Gawn (Cameron, Flynn)
    FWD: caddy, miles, gray, Smith, franklin, Hutchings (wilson, keeffe)

    14K in bank. Who do I swap in/out to try and maximise my points scored this week?

  • Anyone rate Brodie Smith? The mail was that he worked really hard in rehab and has hit the ground running in his second game back on the weekend with 101.

    Only $539K and .5% ownership! Has North at home this week and Carlton away for the GF. I’m giving serious consideration given the lack of D6 options at the moment.

    • Hmmmm that’s interesting! I’m scratching my head for a D6 too. Is he riskier than crisp at $535k who has a L3 average of 93?

    • I picked him up in draft and am thinking of doing the same in classic to be honest. A few others perhaps in better form but its an easy sideways trade from Simpson that lets you spend cash elsewhere

  • Trade Sidebottom or Gibbs and to who (can get any player)
    Already have Titch, Macrae, Kelly, Merret, Oliver, Cripps

  • 2,409 Euman Tigers and first time my main team has beaten my 2 alt teams all year. Won so through to next final, had already won draft final week before so week off so through there too.

    Coincidence am playing my brother KNICKERS in both Classic and Pro in finals matches this week. So obviously won’t be a GF replay for us this year as one has to go

    Good luck Bro

  • thoughts on bringing in seb ross for one of gibbs or sidebottom?

  • Martin > Grundy

    or

    J.Steven > Oliver?

  • Can Ablett bye trusted to replace Kelly, if Kelly is out?

    • I brought hm in last week, but I did so bearing in mind that he plays the dockers this week with a terrible 3 game average against them. Having said that, werent his last 3 as a suns player? and now a top 8 position on the line, he should fire up??

  • Best defender to bring in under 600k?

  • DEF: Whitfield, Yeo, Lloyd, Laird, Shaw, Burton (Lienert, Nash)
    MID: Mitchell, Oliver, Cripps, Merrett, J.Kelly, Coniglio, Beams, Neale (Freeman, Wilson)
    RUC: Gawn, Martin (Pierce, Cameron)
    FWD: Smith, Dangerfield, Rockliff, McLean, Hogan, R.Gray (Daniels, Frampton)

    Have 267k in bank
    Shaw looks like a definite out, so likely to Brayshaw and Hogan (if doesn’t get up) to Heeney. Any other thoughts?

  • Speaking of which, who to trade for Brayshaw: Simpson or Lienert?

    Simpson seems to be slowing down and hasn’t been scoring more than Lienert anyway.
    Also, my opponent has Lienert.

  • Field tom phillips or luke shuey this week
    and sean darcy or matthew lobbe?

  • DEF: Whitfield, Yeo, Brayshaw, Lloyd, Laird, Simpson (Lynch, Smith)
    MID: Mitchell, Cripps, Merrett, Kellly, Crouch, Coniglio, Macrae, Sidebottom (Narkle, Freeman)
    RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (Pierce, Cameron)
    FWD: Dangerfield, McLean, Smith, Wingard, Rockliff, Heeney (Ahern, Greene)

    Cash: $48k

    Bit stuck on trades could go Kelly to Gaz if he’s out and Smith down to Paton. Thoughts?

  • Who goes first – Sidebottom or Gibbs? Can get anyone but would prefer to be unique

    • Neither goes. Both will be offensively good I’m the last two games. Both will average 120. Look elsewhere for changes. Gawn is banged up get Goldstein. You have just received the best advice in the history of this site. You’re welcome friend.

  • dusty to Gaz
    or
    Gawn (looked sore) to grundy?

  • If Kelly gets named this week should I trade him anyway? Worried that the concussion would affect his form.

    • Yes trade. Concussed players have been avg on return from concussion and Kelly playing Swans who aren’t his favourite team to play.

  • dusty to Gaz
    or
    Gawn (looked sore) to grundy??

  • Would one kind soul care to tell me how to work out breakevens? I am aware there are sites to access it on, but I would like to know how it’s done. Cheers

  • Phillips to Beams/Ablett/Ross
    OR
    Ed Langdon to Menegola?

  • Macrae or Ablett in this week?

  • Oliver or Cripps?
