    Firstly, the AFL Fantasy app wasn’t allowing android users to change their captains, lots of freezing on the website for me, and the rankings seems to be messed up.

    Apparently I went from ranked 560 to 4361 and my weekly ranking was 74,629

    On the Chopping Block: O’Meara, Tuohy
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: I know I shouldn’t be using so many early season trades, but a move of Tuohy to Nic Newman, and O’Meara to Marc Murphy leaves me much stronger in the midfield and I’ll have nearly $250k in the bank for another upgrade at some point.

      April 9, 2017 at 9:04 pm

      Tuohy was always a mistake. If you dont do it now you get too far behind.\
      O’meara will come good but in RDT I have bin able to up grade him to Rockiff;
      why wouldnt ya.

      • Avatar


        April 9, 2017 at 9:51 pm

        Yeah I thought Tuohy might slot into the Corey Enright role well, and it looked good after one game, but I’m prepared to cut my losses there and grab Newman to make cash. I would probably keep O’Meara too, but Marc Murphy won’t be this cheap for the rest of the season so makes sense to do it now.

    • Avatar


      April 9, 2017 at 9:08 pm

      Think I’ll do similar Taranto and O’meara for Murphy and Newman. Touhy seems okay but Newman will make much more money. If it makes you feel better they’d be my 3rd and 4th trade.

        April 9, 2017 at 9:52 pm

        Haha thanks for that :P 4th and 5th trade for me – I jumped the gun early on trading Eddy out for Hannan, and then Eddy came back in last week anyway, making the trade a waste of time. Not happy with that. Have to hold off any trades for a while after this I think.

    April 9, 2017 at 10:21 pm

    I am one of the spuds without Taylor Adams, I can bring in either him or Marc murphy this week at the expense of JOM and Tuohy. Do people think Murph will be a top 6 midfielder? He’s 70k cheaper that adams as well, but I get sick of punching myself everytime Adams gets a point

    • Avatar


      April 9, 2017 at 11:25 pm

      I guess you need to ask yourself if you’re going to end up with both of them in your team? If you are, then better to take Murphy now as he’s still quite underpriced if you think he can maintain an average that will be comparable to the top tier guys (Danger, Rocky, Merrett etc). Though I get what you mean, Adams is No.1 for defenders, and not having him will potentially hurt you in league match-ups where your opponent has him. Tough call!

    On the Chopping Block: Goldy OUT, preuss to R2 from bench and Grundy in for Nankervis.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Only silver lining is I have $350k cash to spend next week and my rookies have plenty of money left to be made.

    Absolutely shocking start with all my premium mids scoring 80/90s. Brought in Merret this week and made captain and dished out a sub 100. Hanners, Neale, Jp Kennedy are absolutely killing me. Hopefully they can turn it around. Went from top 300 last year to languishing at 49,000
