Max, Gawn – Ep. 127

Plenty of issues face Fantasy coaches this week, with none bigger (literally) than Max Gawn.

A long term injury isn’t something that any footy fan likes to see, especially Fantasy coaches.

Max Gawn (RUC, $588,000) is set to spend the better part of the next three months on the sidelines following surgery on his injured hamstring. Melbourne’s ruckman went down in the second quarter on 32 Fantasy points, meaning the most expensive ruckman at the start of the season dropped $46,000 in value this week.

The main talking point on this week’s episode of the Official AFL Fantasy Podcast with The Traders is what to do with the 208cm hole left in the ruck division.

The 24 per cent of Fantasy Classic owners have a few choices. One is to find the cash and trade up to the in-form Brodie Grundy (RUC, $623,000), or basically straight swap him to Stefan Martin (RUC, $582,000) who is in the form that made him the top ruckman of 2015.

These are simple moves, but could be get clever with the moves and make get more points out of our squad?

Roy, Warnie and Calvin discuss the Max Gawn trade and help Fantasy Draft owners replace their first round pick with someone suitable.

        Negative break evens for both so even if they flatten out you still make cash

    Hey guys , have no idea what to do with trades this week, I have jaeger but am thinking of holding for one more week, if not I could potentially downgrade say a picket or eddy to a Ballic to get him to swallow, otherwise sideways trading to Neal-bullen. also thoughts on to hold kade Simpson ? Will he come good? Suns this week, if he can’t get a decent score there maybe time for the chop???

    O,Meara is gone from my team next week unless he does something. Most over-rated buy of the year. Barrett is scoring better and he cost a lot less.

    mills brought himself another week?

      I don’t think so. He’s proved that he’s not going to be anywhere near a top 6 defender by the end of the year. May as well move him and use the cash elsewhere if you have nothing else to do.

    Have no real pressing issues this week and only have 29k to play with, would JOM>Swallow & Roughy>Neal-Bullen be silly? Both averaging more and going to make more $$
