    Is it worth doing Stef to Goldy and having no cover down back? Or keep Stef and sure up the bench so I at least have one emergency down there? Cheers in advance

    • Muppet

      August 19, 2016 at 5:01 pm

      I’d get bench cover, this time of year, players will be getting rested (eg Bartel), I’d back Stef in too

  2. Muppet

    August 19, 2016 at 4:34 pm

    Hunter or Sam Mitchell?

    • Chris

      August 19, 2016 at 4:58 pm

      I’d go Hunter. Although he’s been a little down in recent weeks I reckon he’ll score well against Essendon and Freo. Could you help me out above? Cheers

  3. Tex

    August 19, 2016 at 4:47 pm

    Good luck for the next 2 weeks for those still in the big dance!

    With Bartel out, highest scoring defender for the next 2 weeks other than Shaw, Simpson, Laird, Docherty, Boyd…

    Kelly / Enright / Houli / Hodge??

    I’m leaning towards Enright at the moment.

    • Screech

      August 19, 2016 at 4:53 pm

      Houli for me, Enright might not see a lot of the footy this week unless he drifts fwd…

  4. Screech

    August 19, 2016 at 4:53 pm

    Hall, Haus, NRoo or Touk Miller?

    • Nicko.k2309

      August 19, 2016 at 5:03 pm

      Haus

      • Screech

        August 19, 2016 at 5:06 pm

        i already got 3 doggies

        • busta

          August 19, 2016 at 5:55 pm

          that doesn’t really matter now that the bye rounds are over

  5. Haus

    August 19, 2016 at 5:01 pm

    Trade Gray, Titch or Duncan?

    • Nicko.k2309

      August 19, 2016 at 5:03 pm

      Gray

  6. Nicko.k2309

    August 19, 2016 at 5:02 pm

    What trade should I do?
    1, 2 or 3

    1. Naismith to Lucey and Stef Martin to Grundy. (121k in the bank for next week)
    2. Stef Martin to Goldstein and Steven to Hall.
    3. Stef Martin to Mumford and Steven to Neale

    • Muppet

      August 19, 2016 at 5:12 pm

      Hold stef now that Archie is out

  7. Sam

    August 19, 2016 at 5:09 pm

    Which trade sounds the best

    1. JJ to Boyd
    2. Steven/Hunter/Titchell to Bont
    3. Goldy to Grundy

  8. Brett

    August 19, 2016 at 5:10 pm

    Titch to Sitch
    Or
    Castagna to Clayton which gives me bench coverage? Cheers lads

  9. hello

    August 19, 2016 at 5:10 pm

    Trades

    1. Shaw to hauli
    2. JJ to hauli
    3. Stevens to treloar
    4. Gray to haus

    1 2 3 or 4???

    • Brett

      August 19, 2016 at 5:14 pm

      3 for me man. Steven in bad form and Tigers are pretty restrictive

  10. Matthew

    August 19, 2016 at 5:11 pm

    Hodge v Boyd? Boyd averaging more but Hodge normally kills the Eagles

    • Hogan2freo

      August 19, 2016 at 5:24 pm

      I’d go Boyd

  11. Hogan2freo

    August 19, 2016 at 5:23 pm

    Even with A Smith out…
    Scully to Danger
    Or
    Stef to Gawn

    Money no issue…

    Cheers!!

  12. Hogan2freo

    August 19, 2016 at 5:25 pm

    Danger, Bont conigs etc

  13. Diesel

    August 19, 2016 at 5:28 pm

    Got one luxury trade this week.
    Who should I trade out? Sloane or Steven for Treloar.

    Purely focusing on this week.

    • Bolverk

      August 19, 2016 at 6:34 pm

      Steven.

  14. Screech

    August 19, 2016 at 5:28 pm

    j stringer ommitted!

  15. Chris

    August 19, 2016 at 5:31 pm

    Armitage or s. Selwood

  16. Haus

    August 19, 2016 at 5:34 pm

    Treloar or Coniglio?

    • Brett

      August 19, 2016 at 5:37 pm

      Coniglio. Can see him going 140 against Freo. Can you help me out above dude? Cheers

  17. Thomas

    August 19, 2016 at 5:35 pm

    Archie Smith didn’t make the cut. Do we keep Stef now?

    • Sir Relton

      August 19, 2016 at 5:40 pm

      Toss a coin. If you have something else needs fixing, fix it. Otherwise take a punt on Martin having a bad game and trade him.

  18. Nathan

    August 19, 2016 at 5:45 pm

    Coin is an issue, get Tom Mitchell or Sam Mitchell?

  19. Bazz

    August 19, 2016 at 5:55 pm

    One trade left and can’t have Bartel not playing. Have Collins on bench so not sure how much the diff would be.

    Trade Bartel out for JJ or Enright?

    • Nicko.k2309

      August 19, 2016 at 6:27 pm

      Enright

  20. Jim

    August 19, 2016 at 5:58 pm

    Hall or Dahlhaus?

    • Bazz

      August 19, 2016 at 6:07 pm

      Same Q I had last week. I went Hall.
      Kinda thinking I should have gone Dahlh.
      It’s really just a toss of coin though.

      One thing however, Bulldogs have a good run next couple of weeks.

  21. Adz

    August 19, 2016 at 5:59 pm

    Would really appreciate any tips on who people think i should trade. Initially had Martin > Grundy but now that Smith is out im not sure what i should do.

    DEF: Boyd, Simpson, Laird, Kelly, Shaw, Vince (Collins, Austin)

    MID: Dangerfield, Rockliff, Sloane, Neale, Steven, Treloar, Hunter, Mitchell (Menegola, Woodward)

    RUCK: Gawn, Martin (Naismith, Currie)

    FWD: Merrett, Martin, Zorko, Riewoldt, Montagna, Dahlhaus (Reid, Apeness)

    Am going to trade Currie to a 125K for cash so can upgrade to anyone.

  22. Lewie-14

    August 19, 2016 at 5:59 pm

    All my lines are “full” so is a double downgrade of bench spots worth doing. At least it will leave me cashed up next week for any possible carnage !

    • Bolverk

      August 19, 2016 at 6:33 pm

      If there’s carnage next week you might not be able to spend the money. Fixture trading might be a better strategy.

  23. dave

    August 19, 2016 at 6:01 pm

    Bont and Hodge or Houli and Hall?

  24. Adam

    August 19, 2016 at 6:01 pm

    What scores are people predicting for these guys
    Hodge
    Boyd
    Enright
    Houli?

    • Bazz

      August 19, 2016 at 6:05 pm

      Hodge 81
      Boyd 85
      Enright 102
      Houli 90

      • Diesel

        August 19, 2016 at 6:06 pm

        Flip a coin. They could all end up scoring as good or bad as each other. Expect 85-100.

  25. dangerwood

    August 19, 2016 at 6:05 pm

    Do you have to go rocky as captain?

    • Diesel

      August 19, 2016 at 6:05 pm

      If you don’t want to ruin your weekend, yes.

      • dangerwood

        August 19, 2016 at 6:07 pm

        yeah just hoping a large % of people pick rocky so if he falls we all fall.

    • Reilz

      August 19, 2016 at 6:07 pm

      Yep

    • Shags

      August 19, 2016 at 6:16 pm

      If you look at lineups with opponents and you realise you are outgunned, changing your captain to create another unique isnt the worst strategy (known as hedge betting).

      Scooter has to tag someone. Id say rich, but you never know.

  26. Jay

    August 19, 2016 at 6:06 pm

    Still deciding between Nic Nat, Mumford or Jacobs

    • Shags

      August 19, 2016 at 6:13 pm

      Take a punt on Nic Nat, he looked amazing last week.

    • Reilz

      August 19, 2016 at 6:14 pm

      Tough one but would probably go Jacobs based on pre-injury form

      • Shags

        August 19, 2016 at 6:17 pm

        The concern would be that Jacobs might still be a bit injury affected.

  27. Reilz

    August 19, 2016 at 6:07 pm

    Bartel-> Simpson or Bachar?
    Field ZSmith or Naismith

    • Shags

      August 19, 2016 at 6:14 pm

      Id say Houli for the POD effect. Simmo has had a couple of off games recently.

  28. Chris

    August 19, 2016 at 6:08 pm

    The Bont and Nic Nat?
    Or Pendles/Cripps and Sauce Jacobs?

    • Reilz

      August 19, 2016 at 6:13 pm

      Out of those options, number 1

  29. Soops army

    August 19, 2016 at 6:16 pm

    naismith to nic nat, or rich to houli, leaving naismith on the field.

    • Shags

      August 19, 2016 at 6:18 pm

      Id avoid playing Naismith on the field if possible, Tippet is back in.

  30. Nathan W

    August 19, 2016 at 6:19 pm

    Whats Robbie Gray gonna dish up this weekend? sideway trade or back him in?

    • Shags

      August 19, 2016 at 6:27 pm

      Is Gray the worst problem on your team? Who would you trade him too?

      • Nathan W

        August 19, 2016 at 6:32 pm

        Could bench downgrade. Was thinking Dahlaus. Robbie’s form has been average but it is the showdown! thoughts?

  31. Bazz

    August 19, 2016 at 6:21 pm

    One trade left and can’t have Bartel not playing. Have Collins on bench so not sure how much the diff would be.

    Trade Bartel out for JJ or Enright?

  32. Marty

    August 19, 2016 at 6:22 pm

    Hoult, Enright, Boyd or Hodge as Bartel replacement please?

    • Nathan W

      August 19, 2016 at 6:25 pm

      Boyd or Hodge. Back Hodge imo

    • Nick

      August 19, 2016 at 6:26 pm

      Same call for me. Narrowed it down to Hodge and Boyd. Boys is the most consistent with a lowest score of 85 all season, but Hodge kills West Coast. I’m leaning towards Hodge, I see him going 120 tonight. What are your thoughts?

      • Marty

        August 19, 2016 at 6:30 pm

        Thanks guys.

        I think I’ll go hodge, mainly as my opponent has him and I’m worried he might smash out a massive score!

  33. subdub

    August 19, 2016 at 6:24 pm

    JPK, Coniglio or Treloar? Hoping for the one that will be best over last 2 rounds.

    • Shags

      August 19, 2016 at 6:28 pm

      JPK has been in absolute amazing form. So cut I havent been able to trade him in.

    • Bolverk

      August 19, 2016 at 6:28 pm

      Treloar? The others both play North Melbourne, which is generally best avoided.

  34. Bolverk

    August 19, 2016 at 6:25 pm

    Want to take out a unique common to both of my finals opponents. Laird or Hunter?

    • Shags

      August 19, 2016 at 6:27 pm

      Tough one, Laird has been so consistent, but Hunter could go huge against bombers.

      Who would you be trading out?

      • Bolverk

        August 19, 2016 at 6:30 pm

        Josh Smith or Menegola.

        • Shags

          August 19, 2016 at 6:38 pm

          Upgrade your midfield.

          • Bolverk

            August 19, 2016 at 6:46 pm

            Thanks.

  35. Adz

    August 19, 2016 at 6:29 pm

    Would really appreciate any tips on who people think i should trade. Initially had Martin > Grundy but now that Smith is out im not sure what i should do.

    DEF: Boyd, Simpson, Laird, Kelly, Shaw, Vince (Collins, Austin)

    MID: Dangerfield, Rockliff, Sloane, Neale, Steven, Treloar, Hunter, Mitchell (Menegola, Woodward)

    RUCK: Gawn, Martin (Naismith, Currie)

    FWD: Merrett, Martin, Zorko, Riewoldt, Montagna, Dahlhaus (Reid, Apeness)

    Am going to trade Currie to a 125K for cash so can upgrade to anyone :).

    • Shags

      August 19, 2016 at 6:40 pm

      Martin> Grundy is still a good trade, rest of your team is complete, and Martin looks the riskiest onfield premium.

    • Shags

      August 19, 2016 at 6:44 pm

      Only other you might consider is trading Steven who seems to have hit a poor form patch, and grab a JPK or Hanners.

      These are all pure sideways.

      You can always stay happy with your premiums and secure your bench.

      • Adz

        August 19, 2016 at 6:54 pm

        Yee cheers shags…I guess Martin > Grundy still wouldnt be too bad…i sort of ruled it out after smith was dropped.

        I was thinking Steven > Parker maybe but either Parker, Hanners or JPK will be good i suppose…decisions, decisions!

  36. Mark

    August 19, 2016 at 6:30 pm

    Titch or Sitch?

    • Nicko.k2309

    Best mid/fwd the get for $455,000or less, Dahlhaus or I’m thinking gaff, has a very good record against hawthorn at domain???

    • Shags

      August 19, 2016 at 6:48 pm

      How can you go past Dahlhaus? Dogs player bombers then Freo.

  39. Corey

    August 19, 2016 at 6:57 pm
