    Help! Which trade? The question is do I try to fix Martin or Kerridge by taking a punt on Rosa or do I hold strong and just make Trengove into Simpson?

    Trengove/S Martin to Rosa/Grundy
    Trengove/Sumner to Simpson/Long
    Trengove/Kerridge to Rosa/Dahlhaus

        Purely a luxury since he is sharing the ruck role with Archie Smith. He was disappointing when he did this earlier in the year with West.

    Alright guys. Need some help here in making a decision. Would most appreciate some input.

    Team:
    D: Simpson, Docherty, Shaw, Kelly, Laird, Vince (Collins, Drummond)
    M: Dangerfield, Rockliff, Parker, Treloar, Hannebery, Steven, Hunter, Duncan (Mathieson, Menegola)
    R: Gawn, Jacobs (Naismith, Frost)
    F: Merrett, Martin, Riewoldt, Montagna, R Gray, C Smith (J Silvagni, Phillips)
    Bank: $24k

    Now the original plan was to go Mathieson -> Apeness (via Phillips DPP) to net myself $200k, and then to upgrade Clay Smith to Zorko. I’d then aim to downgrade/upgrade over the next two weeks – probably aiming to upgrade Duncan and then Vince/Jacobs.

    But now Jacobs has decided to take an extended holiday, I’ve got a decision to make. Either way I’ll do the Mathieson/Apeness trade, so I’ll have $224k to spend.

    A) Clay Smith -> Zorko (and play Naismith as R2 this week)
    OR
    B) Jacobs -> Grundy (and play C Smith as F6 this week)
    OR
    C) Jacobs -> Goldstein (and play C Smith as F6 this week)

    I’m leaning towards A, purely because if it pays off, I be in a position to upgrade Duncan next week; otherwise my next week’s trades will purely be dealing with Clay Smith and I’ll be stuck with Duncan until the final week.

    In terms of points, the average points differential between Naismith and Goldstein is 28; whereas the differential between Clay Smith and Zorko is 39.3…but to be fair, before the injury affected game last week the difference would only have been 26.6.

    Thoughts?

    Very stuck fellas, have no idea what to do this week. Any ideas will be appreciated and I’ll return the favour!

    DEF: Shaw, Bartel, Simpson, Laird, Docherty, Cowan (Hammelmann, Newman)
    MID: Neale, Lewis, Dangerfield, Parker, Sidebottom, Steven, Rockliff, T.Mitchell (Gore, Foote)
    RUCK: Goldstein, Martin (A.Smith, Pittonet)
    FOR: Martin, Montagna, Merrett, Zorko, R.Gray, Silvagni (Close, Apeness)

    I only have 4k left, was thinking maybe Stef Martin to Gawn but I don’t know if i’ll regret it
    Thanks lads!!

      You’ve certainly dug yourself a hole there with your rookie choices. Virtually no cash to be made from downgrading one.

      Are you even able to generate the $80k to upgrade Stef to Gawn?

      I suppose your best bet would be:
      Silvagni -> Palmer (gets you $86k….total $90k in bank)

      …but then what? Maybe Cowan up to Whitecross? Or your Gawn idea?

    Not playing this week:

    so: Cox -> O’Brien, Foote -> Apeness. Menegola made the (Friday) cut, as has (so far) Clay Smith. Leaves $117K in bank for Prelim next week.

    For next weeks plans…
    If Jacobs doesn’t come back in that can mean a double upgrade e.g. Jacobs->Grundy or Stef (depending on how he goes with Archie this week), and (if he doesn’t lose too much cash) Clay Smith up.

      Great team! Congrats on the season so far.
      Go for broke with Sloane: you’re the highest ranked team with him in (without knowing the trades made this week of course). Could be a great opportunity to make up a bit of ground. 97 points to 4th will be tough though.

      August 12, 2016 at 6:15 pm

      I like 2. Having money to play around with in the last couple of rounds makes it so much easier to take that D6/M8/F6 and turn him into an uber premo that will increase your points significantly.

      In my opinion the selwood trade achieves nothing. Selwood is just as likely to outscore any of those options as he will score less.

      Good luck!
