Wounded Pig – Ep. 132

The shoulder of ham for our Fantasy Pig isn’t looking good.

Watching the Fantasy Pig Tom Rockliff go about his business at University of Tasmania Stadium on Saturday afternoon pleased The Traders.

That was until the last three minutes of the game.

‘Rocky’ dislocated his shoulder after racking up an impressive 130 Fantasy points. While the results of his scans are yet to be known, it would be safe to assume he will miss this week and not out of the question that he misses the following week before the Lions’ bye. Sadly it looks like he needs to be traded.

The positive is that the most expensive and highest averaging player in the competition has an understudy or two.

Tom Mitchell scored 132 in Launceston to take his average to 126 as his pig-like tendencies have increased since joining the Hawks. Later that evening at the MCG, Zach Merrett gathered 33 disposals and 12 tackles for 150 points.

One of the ‘piglets’ is the best option to trade the King Pig to, but if you already have the duo, there are plenty of suitable player to bring in to help improve your side as the bye rounds approach.

Roy, Warnie and Calvin discuss trade possibilities and more on this week’s episode of the Official AFL Fantasy Podcast.

    Warnie you said tonight on the podcast tonight that after this weeks trades you have 5 trades left till the buys, I disagree with that but I may be incorrect. from what i have read we have 2 trades this week (R8 trades) and then 2 trades after R9 and 2 trades after R10 and then we are playing R11 so we have 6 trades (including this weeks trades till R11 starts.

    Trades are allotted at the end of the round, not before.

      Heading into each bye round we get 3 trades. Whether you want to call them R10 or R11 trades.
      (also 90% of people say their R2 trades are their trades heading into R2 and so on)

      This week you have 2 trades
      Next week you have 2 trades
      Week after that you have 3 trades, (same for the next 2 weeks after that)
      Then 2 trades a week for the rest of the year.

      After this Friday there are 5 trades till the byes start, 2 next week and 3 the week after that.

    Disagree Billy. Prior to R1 trades are unlimited. If you say that this weeks trades are post R8 then post R21 you will be out of trades so where are your post R22 trades?

    Fantasy Assistant are calling/naming this weeks trades as R8 trades. Next week R9 then the following week will obviously be R10. Byes with extra trade are shown as R11 and 12 and 13.

    Were DPP positional changes given to us in R5 and before R6?

    I hope you are correct and I am incorrect! I would love an extra trade for the byes!!!
