    RUCK: gawn, blicavs
    FWD: zerret, montagna, voldt, martin, dahlhaus, zorko

    Tough decision about which two, presuming no one gets suspended/injured am definitely thinking blicavs to grundy which leaves me with 68k. From there would like to get rid of vince, options would be enright, houli, JJ – thoughts on them or anyone else, or any other trades that could be better?
    any help much appreciated!! good luck in your grand finals hopefully as well!

    So not sure whether to make 2 minor changes or upgrades, or whether to go one up one down… Advice?

    Shaw, Kelly, Laird, Doch, Boyd (Ruggles, Collins)

    Danger, Rocky, Coniglio, Bont, JPK, Tom Mitchell, Hanners (Menengila, Foote)

    Gawn, Stef Martin (Naismith, Chol)

    Z Merrett, D Martin, R Gray, Monty, Zorko, Dahlhaus (Reid, Long)

    Cash: $19K

    I don’t trust Stef completely and Vince is down on form… What would you do?

    • Avatar

      Sir Relton

      August 23, 2016 at 7:24 am

      Likely Stef still gets 100 vs Grundy could push 120 in his current form.
      Whereas Vince as likely to get 60 as he is 110 vs Simpson pretty reliable for 100 and should go higher vs Bombers.
      So Stef and Simpson = 200 at least
      or Grundy and Vince = 180 – 220

      Least risk is Keeping Stef and going Simpson and also has a better combined Ceiling imo. Good luck.

    Struggling to see who to trade. Got 4 GF’s to win. I’m feeling Stef – Grundy, especially with Ceglar out. But are there any others in my team who will bomb on me?
    Someone please read their crystal ball and tell me who to swap in.

      It’s a good position to be in. Stef is not reliable, so I’d be doing the Grundy trade.

      Similarly to you, would you do the Stef to Grundy, or Vince to Hodge or Simpson type thing. My team is above…

    trying to decide what to do with my last two trades

    First trade will be either Jelwood or Sitch from Matho to take Menegola’s place on field.

    Team before any Trades

    Shaw, Laird, Boyd, Docherty, Vince, Simpson (Cowan Wigg)
    Hanners, Titch, Sloane, Hunter, Danger, Rocky, Steven, Menegola (Gore Mathieson)
    Martin, Gawn (Naismith Lowden)
    Martin, Merret, Riewoldt, Hall, Dahl, Gray (Apeness Markov)

    Team after First Trade

    Shaw, Laird, Boyd, Docherty, Vince, Simpson (Cowan Wigg)
    Hanners, Titch, Sloane, Hunter, Danger, Rocky, Steven, Sitch/Jelwood (Gore Menegola)
    Martin, Gawn (Naismith Lowden)
    Martin, Merret, Riewoldt, Hall, Dahl, Gray (Apeness Markov)

    Sitch or Jelwood for First Trade?

    What should I do with my last trade(if anything)?

      Gotta get Simpson because Carlotn against Essendon where one of the Bulldogs defenders this week against Essendon scored 146.. Simpson will score over 120 with ease I reckon..

      Lin Jong will go quite well this week because Bulldogs are against Fremantle (which are the easiest team to score on). He should go over 90..

      Hope this helped! :)

      I don’t know the prices, but if you can downgrade Guthrie to Clayton (if he plays and if you think he’ll better last weeks score), or Wigg if he gets a gig, then you should be set (pending on the prices of course which I don’t know).

      BTW “I need to downgrade a player (preferable Vince or Dangerfield)” Dangerfield???? What the heck, he hasn’t been going terrible, there isn’t need to trade out such a quality player. Vince on the other hand I understand (he’s pissing me off as well. Nothing but shit since I’ve traded him in).

    IN Gibbs (will score an easy 110+ against Brissy), Dahlhaus (should score 100+ against Freo)
    Remaining salary: Doesn’t matter but around $10k.

    Will downgrade one of the def rooks to a throwaway 125k, then should be able to make any luxury trade (barring any resting),

    3 – Sidebottom vs HAW
    4 – Goldy vs GWS

    DEF: Docherty Boyd Laird Shaw Vince Bartel (Collins Merrett)
    MID: Rockliff Dangerfield Parker Mitchell Hunter Duncan Gaff Menegola (Phillips Foote)
    RUC: Gawn Grundy (Frost O’Brien)
    FWD: Merrett Martin Zorko Riewoldt Hall Dahlhaus (Silvagni Wingard)

    I was thinking Vince to Hodge and Gaff to Treloar.

    Open to any suggestions.

    Hey people, looking for input on trade ideas, team is as follows:

    Docherty, Laird, Shaw, Boyd, Hodge, Vince (Drummond, Hammelmann)
    Rocky, Danger, Steven, Hunter, Bont, Hanners, Titch, Coniglio (Menegola, S.Reid)
    S.Martin, Jacobs (Naismith, A.Smith)
    Z.Merrett, D.Martin, Zorko, Monty, Hall, Dahl (J.Palmer, T.Phillips)
    78k in the bank

    At the moment I think my biggest problem is Vince but Coniglio is also a concern, coming off a below average game up against North. Current trades are:

    Vince to Simpson
    Coniglio to Gibbs
