Trade Talk Tuesday

Either you have an awesome team, a lot of patients or you are like me and love spending the week working out how a trade could save your season. Here is the forum to discuss ideas and help each other out.

  • Roy

If it’s not enough that our players are getting injured and dropped, hows the frustration levels at premium priced players scoring less than rookies on a consistent basis (Greg Broughton). I mean I am totally against trading out premiums or “keepers” so to speak but when Broughton is continually getting outscored by the likes of Danny Stanley…… something has to give. At this stage in the year, I still believe you need a good reason to trade eg. I think it’s a bad idea to trade premium to premium just to avoid the bye. In my eyes that is small gain with no sustainable long term gain.

With the help of the assistant coach, here are a few players worthy of discussion under differing categories.

Cash Cows:

Tom Liberatore: 
Average:88  Break even:-77  Price:$158,900

Josh Toy:
Average: 64  Break even:-53  Price: $97,600

Brodie Smith:
Average: 71  Break even: -47  Price: $152,800


Brian Lake:
Average: 58  Break even: 201  Price: $414,300

Brendon Goddard:
Average: 86  Break even: 172  Price: $438,100

Marc Murphy:
Average: 102 Break even: 155  Price: $405,100

Jump on:

Nathan Fyfe:
Average (last 3): 106  Break even: 1  Price: $333,100

Jed Adcock:
Average (last 3): 96  Break even: -10  Price: $293,100

Get your ideas out there guys, discuss all things trade here. Have fun!!

        im thnkin this could be a purple patch and he will go back to scoring 60s like last season (probly slightly better). its a risk cause there are player like cyril and ben mcglynn avaliable (mcglynn super consistent doesnt score less than 80

      B Smith was brilliant in a poor side last week

      although if the crows get back some players he’ll get a rest at some stage
      i’d reckon… he’s a gem…

    FFS- for fyfe’s sake!!!
    95 vs Lions

    117 vs Crows
    137 vs Kangas
    So hes done well vs poorer performed sides, & not so well vs a genuine side!

      April 19, 2011 at 6:44 pm

      I’d wait 1 more week with Broughts as he has the bye in rnd six, then you can trade away if underperforms again.
      Do not trade out Cam Bruce!!!
      I had Smith from the beggining, but wasn’t looking good last week until he junked it up in the last qtr!
      Nice little player tho!
      Remember the aim of this game is to try field a team of 22 premiums- dont go backwards, still 20 rounds to go!

        April 19, 2011 at 7:05 pm

        my only concern with bruce is even though he just scored 100, he had a pretty poor game afl wise. making him easy pickings for punishment as the sub.

        Broughton i believe his time is up, if i trade him it has to be now, im not gonna wait till he drops in price yet another week and adcock is on fire!

        Broughtons BE is 127 so he’s likely to haemorrhage heaps of money if he scores shizer again, which he’s likely to do given his (perceived) change in role this season. Personally I’m offloading him for Toy or Smith or Otten this week, can’t afford to lose another 30-40K on him.

    April 19, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    Okay this is doing my head in but thoughts welcome on the following options (have 22 trades left):

    Option 1:
    Brought to Brodie Smith
    Petrie to ZSmith
    Do that this week as Z smith will go up about 30k next week.

    Then next week Krak or Matera to Dids (know he has a bye in rnd 7 but only interested in league wins)
    That will leave me about 70k in the bank


    Option 2:

    Broughton to Gram
    Petrie to Zac Smith

    Leaves about 60k in bank.


    Cheers in advance.

    April 19, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    I have a reasonable but not great team. Top 15k nationally.
    Bit concerned about Vickery and Petrie.
    I can downgrade Vickery to Zac (+ 20ppg) and upgrade Petrie to Higgo (+40ppg).
    This will leave me with 20 trades and 90k in the bank.

    Plan to bring in Chappy later 20k short now.

      April 19, 2011 at 9:01 pm

      Another week, he could be worth 280k with scores of 50-60. Im trading him for Toy or Smith this week before he bleeds out! I was leaning toward Adcock or Gram but extra $$ may be a problem.

      Ill use the extra $$ from the Broughton downgrade for my Chapman,Selwood or Montagna upgrade in coming weeks

      If u must trade him go to rockliff but it’s not like he’s been getting 60’s each week like a certain pair of freo defenders. I’d say keep him but up to u if u think it is worth a trade.

    April 19, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    Does anyone think that with Suban out Broughton’s scoring will increase. If not Gram or Adcock in?

    • Avatar


      April 19, 2011 at 9:56 pm

      Here are the probs Im facing in the same situation (Im assuming u have Broughton and u want to stop the bleeding of cash)

      Broughton – New role, not DT friendly, dont think he’ll take Subans role
      Adcock – Drummond is in and alot of people are saying Adcocks scores will suffer
      Gram – St Kilda are crap at the moment, Lyon may change roles on alot of Saints, including Gram

      So Im going for a rookie to make me some cash immediately and in the long run, then upgrade someone else to a real premium with the $$ made

      • Avatar


        April 19, 2011 at 9:59 pm

        Gram can only go back or midfield really.

        And he is awesome and runs up the ground off half back anyway.

          April 19, 2011 at 10:24 pm

          Broughton was one of the best according to the papers against the Roos (not in DT land) so im guessing Ibbotson will take Subans role, gonna trade Broughts – Toy. GC have bug all defenders at the moment so Toy is gonna get a few games hey…$$$$$ :) and then Kraks to Libba before he explodes

  21. Avatar


    April 19, 2011 at 10:12 pm

    Hi all

    B – Grimes, Gibbs, Goddard, Suckling, Adcock, Heppell, Duigan (Toy, Stanley, Lower)
    M – Swan, Selwood, Boyd, Curnow, Libba, D.Swallow (Harris, Buckley, Krakouer)
    R – Cox, Sandilands (Vickery, McCauley)
    F – Franklin, Goodes, Johnson, N.Riewoldt, Knights, Tapscott, Darling (Prestia, Richardson, Matera)

    Whats my next move here & when? Thinking of getting Mitchell & Pendlebury in soon or even Thompson???

    I’ve got $375,800 in the bank.

    Any suggestions?


    • Avatar


      April 19, 2011 at 10:21 pm

      Too many mid price and rookie defense on field for my liking.

      When Suckling peaks or maybe after this week because of hawks bye trade to Enright, Gram or Deledio.

      Upgrade peaked mid soon to Mitchell which will probably be Libba because you wont want to trade Curnow anytime soon.

      Get Pendlebury later after round 13 bye

    The injury curse has hit big time.

    Bad start to the year, i had Connors, so last week traded in Suban. Fantastic!!!!!

    Coad does his hammy. Leaving me with a bench of Lower, Pedersen and Puoplo.

    Big decision this week. Pray that Krakouer plays and doesn’t lose his spot to ‘The Hard Man” Dick.

    Hate to think i will have no way out of a donut since i have Goodes, Darling and Tapscott out with the stupid multi bye.

    Saving grace is that i have $141 100 in the bank.

    Im thinking of trading in Rob Murphy. But there are other options but will leave me no cash for a trade to get atleast a decent trade for Coad. Fingers crossed North and the Hawks do their part in what could be a very, very, very ordinary Round 5.

    Whats the consensus on Broadie Smith Vs Andy Otten. Have not seen any of the Crows games this year.(Dont get me started on the Foxtel rip-off) But will see them get a 8 goal loss to the MIghty Blues!!!!!! Gibbs for the big C this week.

      April 19, 2011 at 10:56 pm

      B smith was great…

      Otten burned every touch he got…

      given the crows have lots of injuries it’s hard to see either of them losing their spot
      might see otten as the sub though…his disposal was shite lwknd…

      I asked the same question.
      Carried his ar$se all last year for 70s, noob mistake.
      Looks like he is fit.
      Atm I may sit on Petrie, he is set to rise, if modestly and has a couple at the darklands next few.

      If ur in the Petre dish and have money in the bank, you will be able to upgrage to Chappy rd 7. I go to most cats games and he is working into it nicely. Should drop to around 410-420k around then.

    Gents, what does dpp stand for – double position player? How does this work, does it mean you can move them from say a midfield in to a foward role instead of acutally trading?

    • Avatar


      April 20, 2011 at 11:39 am

      yes genius you can move them around… it doesnt cost you a trade. for example you can move A. Krakouer (MID/FWD) and D. Prestia (FWD/MID) around between the fwd line and midfield without using a trade.

    April 20, 2011 at 3:39 pm

    Interested in people’s thoughts:

    Trade Josh Hunt for Fyfe
    Trade Jarrad Grant for Adcock.

    Only complication to this otherwise straightforward trade is that I have Lower and Krak. Both are passengers at the moment., but not likely to loose much value, whereas Hunt and Grant are almost certainly going to loose value after next round.

    • Avatar


      April 20, 2011 at 3:47 pm

      You mean hunt-adcock and grant-fyfe right.

      Lower should be back this week and honestly Krakeour will improve and I don’t think will get dropped.

      So go for it Grant sucks and if you like Adcock do it
