Trade Talk Tuesday

Tony Tawk is back with his view on who to hold or fold. This is the patform for you to discuss all things trade, including your regrets (NIck Lower)

  • Roy

What a great week. One of the highest scoring weeks I’ve ever witnessed. Everyone’s feeling great and they’re won’t be many trades this week. So many 2000’s and I got one of my career-high scores of 2232. If the players keep this up, they’re won’t be many people on the chopping block.

It’s that time of year where we really get to see how we’re doing. How have we been going so far? What changes do we need to make? Many coaches start to set their teams up around now for the 2nd half of the season. Our cash-cows begin to drop, and we start to bring in more premiums.

On the chopping block round 9-

Who to get rid of-

5. Rohan Bewick- As I said earlier in the season, get rid of a rookie once they start going down in price, and Bewick is guilty. He’s been getting some shit scores too, so I would either put him on the bench and keep him there, or trade him.

4. Luke Tapscott- Tapscott is another rookie who has gone down. He’s also injured and might be out. He was getting shit scores anyway so I would trade him.

3. Darren Jolly- I said to wait to see the full extent of his knee injury, and we have seen it. Jolly is out for 4-6 weeks, so get him out. Hopefully he can recover quickly and be back before the finals because he is Collingwood’s most important player and I don’t think Wood will do to well.

2. Aaron Davey – Been really consistent and good over the past few years but this year he has dropped and has been getting some shit scores. I would get rid of him pretty soon.

1. You know what? There’s no number 1 this week. Everyone’s reward for such a great week. Great effort by all players and coaches. Yeah!! Woo!!

Wait a few weeks on-

Alan Didak- Again, Didak is in here. He was the sub this week, so you can’t really blame him for getting a shit score. He should hit his peak very soon, and you’ll be happy to have him then.

Patrick Dangerfield- Hes been a bit inconsistent lately, but he’s still showed some good signs. I would keep him for a few more weeks to see how he goes.

Who to get in-

Luke Shuey- This guy really is playing some great footy. His game against the Bulldogs was great and hopefully he keeps up his form. He’s been abit inconsistent, but he still looks to be a good buy.

 Daisy Thomas- He wasn’t a very popular buy at the start of the season, but I’m sure more coaches would want him in their teams. He’s been averaging 102 so far this season and got a great score of 133 this week. Get him in.

Heath Scotland – One of the most consistent players in the AFL, Scotland’s lowest score this year has been 79 and his highest 128. His a great player and his DPP makes him a better buy.

Who saved themselves-

Brendon Goddard – We were all thinking about trading him. Deep down we knew we couldn’t trade Goddard. This week he showed his true potential once again and hopefully he’s hit his peak and will continue his form throughout the rest of the season.

Nick Lower- There was massive hype surrounding this guy in the pre-season. Then as the season gradually went on, we though to ourselves “Why?”. He was getting shit scores. But this week, he killed it and got us a great score. Lower has persuaded coaches around the country to keep him for the future.

Nick Duigan – He was just about to start going down with 1 more shit score, but he came out and gave us a good score this week. Duigan proved to us his worth as a 7th defender or bench player. Keep him in.

Copy and paste this format into your comments:

Who you want to get rid of:

Who you are waiting a few weeks on:

Who saved themselves:

Who you want in:

    just wondering whether lynch is a good downgrade option or not? i know its very early days but what do people think he will average and will he play out the remainder of the year? Advice would be most appreciated.

      Lynch will be a fat spud. Will be dropped in round 13 and average mid 50’s from here on in.

        Yeah i’m really starting to have questions about lynch for a few reasons such as
        -his job security is unknown being a GC rookie
        -despite his two massive scores he probably will average in the 60’s or thereabouts
        -his price rise will be irrelevant as i doubt i will upgrade or downgrade him
        -if i get him i will only be playing him on the field for 1 week (+ maybe during the multi byes) as i am getting chappy next week.
        -he is 30k more than most rookies

        I am planning to downgrade libba to mzungu next week as this will reignite my DPP link between the FWDS and MIDS. Who should i get instead of mzungu and lynch in my fwds?

            Mzungu is the shit. Lych is tempting but GC rotate rookies too much. Its too hard to predict if he’ll get dropped next round or the round after etc… Mzungu although only got one quarter last week looked pretty solid and got into the game with ease scoring fast. Hes not really a developmental rookie either hes at the stage of being afl readymade which is a real positive. This guy if he gets 4 quarters this week will score 80 plus. Get him in hes a ball magnet. Check out some of his WAFL stats.

    can someone plz tell me why everyone is jumping on GAJ ? hes only had 2 100+ scores and i think thompson, murphy and selwwod r better options (i know selwood more expensive btw but still) He also plays for one of the worst teans in the league and i dont think he will be consistently over 100

      -He’s got no more byes, unlike Selwood during finals
      -He’s playing for a new team, so you’d expect them to get better during the year. He’s a proven gun, so he should pump out decent scores

      May 24, 2011 at 11:31 pm

      I’m with you ac… While GAJ’s pedigree and ceiling are unquestioned… one massive score, against Adelaide, is not enough to convince me to jump on board just yet. Pump out a 120 against Geelong and then we’ll talk Gary.

      May 24, 2011 at 11:43 pm

      he has had both his byes.. he is very cheap for GAJ.. his lowest scores have only been high 80’s and that was when he was finding form from limited pre season. the team doesn’t matter the guy is a champ and im bringing him in

        Rishcatelli (you know who i mean) is the better option over Gazza,
        Mike finds the ball himself, he is fed the ball by others, he tackles hard, he doesn’t get the tag and did i mention HE DOESN’T GET THE TAG.

        Abletts good and quite persistent

        But Rishcatelli’s more consistent

        Same price like Gaz and as a Sun

        He has no more byes to come

        So Mikey”s one and Gazza’a two

        Trade them both in… I dare you to…..

    Sitting 634th Overall, 13 Trades Left, $153,800 in bank

    Backs – Goddard, Deledio, Gibbs, Shaw, Suckling, Adcock, Lower (Heppell, Stanley, Puopolo)
    Mids – Boyd, Pendles, Selwood, Libba, Harris, Jacobs (Watson, Rockliff, Polec)
    Rucks – Cox, Smith (Sandilands, McCauley)
    Fwds – Sylvia, Franklin, Goodes, Petrie, Knights, J. Reiwoldt, Darling (Krakeour, Tapscott, Matera)

    PROBLEMS – With Jobe & Rocky both on my bench it leaves me very weak in the mids this week.. I originally planned to ride the 4 weeks with Jobe on the bench but now Rocky is out for one maybe 2 is it too much to have sittin on the pine??

    I hate trading premiums….

    Adelaide and Richmond supportes this goes out to you:

    This is a repost in part, but curious to see if anyone knows. Why was Angus Graham not picked last week for Richmond?

    Also was James Seller playing down back at Full Back on the weekend? Is he going anywhere soon?

    • Avatar


      May 24, 2011 at 11:51 pm

      With Sellar I wouldn’t touch him with a 10ft barge pole from a DT perspective. Handy player but has struggled to find a niche in the Crows line up for years. He isn’t big enough to be a ruckman, not quick enough for a key position so he is very much a horses for courses player. Tippett, Jacobs and McKernan seem to be higher up the pecking order for the big men. You also have Andy Otten on the verge of coming back into the team, although that might be a game in the SANFL first. In my opinion, I just don’t think that Sellar has the job security to be a sound DT investment, and he does lack the scoring power if he is being played down back. Early on Sellar was handy up forward and plays up forward for Glenelg in the SANFL, but Tippett and McKernan seem to be the big talls in the Crows forward line.

    Hey guys. I was the one who predicted Lower’s awesome score last week.
    This weeks advice:
    Do not trade lynch(GC) In. He will spud it from now on and get dropped and not return.

      No offence intended Colonel, yet it’s relatively easy to predict that Lower would have a good game in the grudge match against the team that thought he wasn’t good enough so delisted him – especially with Port playing like a rabble.
      I’m interested in hearing your *reasoning* for why Lynch(GC) “will spud it from now on and get dropped and not return.”
      I ask, not because I disagree but simply due to my ignorance. It would piss me off to have two ‘Cam Pedersens’ on my team…

    Would love to hear people’s thoughts on Robert Murphy…have had him in my forwards all year but really frustrated with his 78 average and obviously disappointed with his 42 on the weekend and he’s leaked money all season and looks like will continue to do so.

    Would you consider a sideways trade, to a Fyfe perhaps?

      May 25, 2011 at 12:13 am

      I have Murphy in my backs and understand your frustration. I thought he would be a nice unique kind of pick and whilst most games he is serviceable, that 42 on the weekend was frustrating. For me, I’ll give Murphy a couple more weeks as my first priority is to get Ablett into my mids, but trading Murphy to Fyfe is a reasonable option if you have the trades to spare. Fyfe should give you an extra 30 points per game which will come in handy. The only thing to consider is the Round 16 multibye with Melbourne and Adelaide … I’ve noticed a lot of people have Knights/Sylvia/Tapscott/Pavlich/Fyfe … All in all, a sound trade if you have the trade to spare.

      • Avatar


        May 25, 2011 at 12:26 am

        Yeah, it’s an interesting one. I’d have preferred he was a ‘set and forget’ but might end up like Didak and have to be traded out.

        I have 14 trades left and $215k in the bank and was looking to boost my mids and backs first…

        This week the plan was/is McKernan -> Tendai/I.Smith/Lynch then Prestia -> premium mid.


        DEF: Gibbs, Adcock, Goddard, Enright, Duigan, Heppell, Hibberd [Stanley, Puopolo, Retzlaff]
        MID: Pendlebury, Boyd, Bartel, Redden, Libba, Swallow [Harris, Prestia, Irons]
        RUC: Cox, Sandilands [Smith, Bailey]
        FOR: Franklin, Chapman, N.Riewoldt, Johnson, Knights, Murphy, Petrie [Matera, McKernan, Richardson]

        So to me it is out of Montagna, Sylvia, Murphy, Rischitelli, Ablett, Shiels, Judd, Mundy? (would love to bring in Selwood but already 4 other Cats players in my squad, and will probably bring in Swan after the Pies next bye)

        Was initially leaning towards Monty or Mundy, but the Gold Coast boys are tempting me too.

        But then I had a think about Murphy and thought another option would be to sideways him to Fyfe, then do Swallow/Libba + cash to a premium mid.

          May 25, 2011 at 12:43 am

          I like Ablett better than Monty but that’s just me, Sylvia would keep DPP, Mundy may struggle without Sandi.

            May 25, 2011 at 12:51 am

            You can just afford to do Murphy to Fyfe and Libba to Ablett leaving Swallow for cover with his excellent js.

      Higgins’ average over the past few years isn’t all that bad yet he appears to get injured twice a year (for multiple weeks each time) – it seems to be part of the deal when you select him. Throw after first injury or (knowingly) ride the rollercoaster (a unique after everyone else has got sick of him)
      Didak is a star with his head up his arse. His problem this year is ego/form. Mick’s slap in the face (green vest) might just have insulted him into humility. My take – hold and watch.

    • Avatar


      May 25, 2011 at 7:21 am

      Not yet for me. Showed awesome form in the NAB yet “should be back in a couple of weeks” could easily turn into 4 weeks if he doesn’t pull up as well as expected. Add the fact that it may take him a while to get his form back (SANFL and AFL) and you might just end up with a massive waste of space on your bench.
      Lynch (and most from GC) may suffer from the ‘rotation policy’. Hasn’t showed enough (yet) to be thought of as keeper and the main reason you’d consider him is as a cashcow with two very good scores under his belt already. Callinan is on the opposite end of the spectrum – chaulk and cheese.
      You got Mzungu? Similar form in NAB as Callinan, DPP as well, and is up and about already.

    I will be getting both Selwood and Boyd and two premiums to complete my team. I expect to have 3 or 4 trades left for the remainder of the season. Scored 2279 last week and think I can do a little better this week.

    Questions are : Which first, Selwood or Boyd, Chapman or Franklin and then perhaps Brown for Darling.

    Some good DT filth going on at the moment.

    Chasing another perspective from you lot.

    Here is my team currently…seeking advice on where to upgrade/downgrade and potential weaknesses running into the next few weeks.

    B – Goddard, H.Swan, Enright, Deledio, Adcock, Heppell, Duigan, Lower, Puopolo, Toy
    M – Swan, Boyd, Pendels, Dal Santo, Gibbs, Swallow, Harris, Wallis, Jacobs
    R – Cox, Sandi, Z.Smith, Bailey
    F – Franklin, Goodes, N.Roo, Stevie J, Knights, Darling, Petrie, Krak, Matera, Prestia

    Looking at bringing in I.Smith if he gets named, and maybe upgrading a mid or a forward. Dal Santo is killing me, so thoughts on giving him the boot or stick with him? His b/e this week is an offensive 162, so another $20+k goneski! Thoughts on Monty vs GAJ vs Selwood as his mid upgrade, or do I bring in Chappy a week earlier? Problem I think we are all facing this week is Swallow and Harris both have achievable b/e’s, Wallis isn’t worth trading and Jacobs is only at the start of his earning potential. There’s 113K sitting in the bank currently with 16 trades left.

    At some stage I need a DPP (Mid/Fwd) in my midfield as I currently don’t have any but as stated previously I’ll have to trade out one of the GC boys who “should” reach there b/e and earn some more coin.

    Next week I’ll bring in Tendai as another downgrade.

    Thanks boys, keep up the filth!

      Next i think Harris – Mzungu
      Harris may have another 1 or 2 weeks left in him but mzungu will br the last mid/fwd to pop up for a while. Unless Smith from hawthorn is doesn’t play for another few weeks.
      This week i think you should get rid of Dal Santo for monty. Dal can’t handle a tag to save himself and Montagna is at his cheapest price for the year.

    Who you want to get rid of: C.Richardson, Matera, L.Thompson

    Who you are waiting a few weeks on: none

    Who saved themselves: Lower, goddard, petrie (Although not sure how much longer i can ride the petrie coaster)

    Who you want in: Mzungu, T.Lynch, B.Jacobs

    Cash in the bank: 166,000

    Ok my team is pretty much finalized for the season (taking out any intances of injuries/droppings), I have 3 trades in plan to build up some cash come finals time so this week i am going with:

    Richardson > Mzungu +39k
    Matera > Lynch +80k

    Next week

    Thompson > Jacobs +85k

    Which leaves me with 370k in the bank.

    Here is my dilemma, I am currently on 10 trades (due to my trading addiction) and I am wondering whether making the extra 200k is worth losing 3/10 trades I have remaining, Keeping in mind that I am set for the season on field and on my bench

      sorry messed up the trade plan, it will actually be:

      Thompson > Jacobs +85k
      Matera > Lynch +80k

      Next week

      Richardson > Mzungu +39k
      C.Dixon > Mzungu +29k

      Can’t decide out of Dixon or Richardson, which one is more likely to get a spot back in their teams before the other one? And who is likely to rise in price more?

          He has been in the team since the start so consistent 90’s hasn’t been a disaster.

          Plus with Swallow on the bench as an Emergency and Gibbs, Goddard or Delidio to move into the midfield if needed, why would I care he has two byes, he’ll probably turn into Marc Murphy soon enough.

          2371 scored with $300,000 in the bank last week I’m happy with the state of my team.

            No problem, not having a go at your choices but the way you said it, sounded as if
            your mids were set for the rest of the year.

    i am a self confessed dream team dud and in my first year i am still learning my craft.

    i have both injured ruckmen (jolly and sandi), and due to my own ignorance i dont have joel tippet or big cox.

    so trying to make up for my own spastic ways i have come up with this

    jolly =====> j. tippet

    and use petrie to cover sandi for the next 4 weeks


    use the excess cash to go

    tapscott ====> buddy or goodes

    whats your thoughts people!

    Is anyone considering trading out Sandi. I can swap for Premium mid. He will miss 5 weeks ( 1 bye included ). I have Z Smith and Lobbe, with Petrie as DPP.I was intending to trade smith when his price peaked, but may keep him and trade Sandi instead .
    Am thinking I may be able to make up a few places if Sandi is out for longer than expected or does not return in the same form. Most people will keep Sandi, so I may try something different.
    The only cheap Ruck seems to be Max Bailey.

      good strategy, i plan on doing that next week,

      posting it on here will encourage more people to do it though making it less unique…

      Bailey has JS to some degree more than any of the other options I think. Vardy is just being exposed to the big league and Ottens will come back in soon. Griffen may be a good call seeing he’s covering for Sandi but he’s a tad more pricey.

        May 26, 2011 at 9:45 am

        I think I will be going Sandi – Tippett. I have Petrie in the forward line, and this allows me to still use Smith as a back-up option. Don’t forget if you have Cox, you will need your backup to play come the eagles bye. I don’t want to be suck with relying on Bailey for a score.

        Petrie as 2nd Ruck – Low 60’s – 130’s
        Smith as 2nd Ruck – Low 60’s – 100’s
        Bailey and 2nd Ruck – Low 60’s …

    Dane swan is looking out of form and Evans looks the perfect downgrade replacement.

    Guna go swan to evans then make evans captain this week. and use the cash to go zac smith to kepler bradley. looking set for a weekly win with these moments of genius

      A late comment, in case you look back here.

      Despite having Poo in your backline, I don’t think your team is anywhere near as shit as you seem to think it is (if you’re in it for the long haul) although much depends on how many trades you have left.

      Presume that the DT Gods gave you automatic entry into the DT finals.
      If you were only allowed to replace 4 players in your current squad to take into the finals, but you got them for free, who would you get and who would you chuck? (Don’t tell me, I don’t care)
      Then, back in the real world of fantasy, aim to make 2 of those swaps in the next 3 weeks (take your time) and 2 more as soon as possible afterwards. I doubt you’d feel as glum.

      imho, looking a mere 2 weeks ahead is potentially as dangerous as chasing last weeks points.
