    12/1333 with jaensch, swallow, Burgoyne, ablett, hallahan, sandilands, Jacobs, gunston, bruest and danger.
    Looking at 2200 if all players play well. What do you guys think I should get? Cheers

    Thoughts would be appreciated! I really need help!

          Hard to find a better/cheaper def right now. Might have to wait until other rookies get a game.
          Personally I have both and am holding for a couple of weeks to fix other areas first.

          I’ll probably look to downgrade Langford and upgrade Langdon as his price isn’t quite maxed out yet.

          Hope that helps.

      Actually it allowed to me downgrade and get in Tex and freed up cash for Jelwood. Quite happy I traded him out at that price plus he will still drop a little more after having a BE of 140.

      Good on those for keeping him….

    is it worth trading polec to goddard this week and then hallahan to rocky in a few weeks time or is it better to go poled to rocky this week and in a few weeks find someone to trade hallahan to?

      Rocky should be tagged the next few weeks so wait until after the dockers game to get him. Hopefully a bad game will bring down his price for you to snag him

      Unlucky mate – not sure if you’re watching the game but he got a knock in the 1st quarter and has been lumbering up forward since. Couldn’t have predicted that! He’s been subbed out now, but I don’t think the injury is serious.

      Tougher fixtures with Sydney and freo coming up so Cotchin to Pendles for me.

      Langdon is scoring ok and maxwell out at least a game or 2 so I wouldn’t trade him just yet

      June 1, 2014 at 8:20 pm

      Cotchin to Pendles is a sideways trade, sure Pendles averages 10 more, but I believe your first priority should be upgrading rookies. Also, if Cotchin gets back in to form he could potentially lift his average 5-10. Someone who averages 100 no matter what their form should only be upgraded as a luxury trade I believe.

      Jaensch averages about 15 more than Langdon. So you get more points, and an extra premo

      Depends on rest of your team, but on face value Cotch to Pendles is the go. I’d back Langdon to get 85 this week, and Pendles 115.

    Who would you guys pick out of Rocky and Barlow? Obviously Rocky is on fire at the moment but he’s got Picken and Crowley in his next 3 games whereas Freo have a great run coming up and Barlow is a fair bit cheaper…

    • Brendan

      Brendan

      June 1, 2014 at 9:48 pm

      at this point in the season i think you go the value pick of barlow. there is still plenty of time for rocky to have 1 or 2 bad games and fall in price 50k. keep the cash for upgrades elsewhere

      • Avatar

        leetrevor81

        June 1, 2014 at 9:51 pm

        Rocky is averaging 127, how many points are you willing to lose to save 50k?

        • Brendan

          Brendan

          June 1, 2014 at 9:53 pm

          the thinking is that you can make it up elsewhere, barlow will be 110+ with a huge ceiling and consistency and the money saved could help turn another rookie into a premo which could be worth 15-20 points at least

            June 1, 2014 at 9:59 pm

            I agree, Brendan. I really want Rocky, but he’s just too expensive right now. I can upgrade 2 other players for the price of getting to him. He’ll have a poor game at some point in the next few weeks, drop $50k, at which point I’ll grab him.

    Guys, what do you think of:
    Ryan Griffen to Barlow
    NRoo to Zorko or Chappy

    I still have Langdon and Langford (1 on field, 1 on bench), but I reckon I’m OK to keep Langdon on ground for another week or two, and then turn him into Bartel (who is the only premo def I’m missing).

          Nice team. griffin to barlow would be the clear trade. I have nroo and will be holding, but if you must drop i would go zorko for the cash grab. If it were my team I’d go barlow and then look to make a rookie downgrade to keep the cashflow going
