    Best option out of Stengle and Wagner as a forward rookie? Stengle will leave me $114k for next week and Wagner $97k. Who has better job security?

      Don’t know about Wagner but Stengle’s isn’t good. Maybe 2 games and he will be gone.

      I think too many of one team is dangerous if that team has a shocker and gets slaughtered then it affects your whole team. If u didn’t have 4 Swans I would say jpk but the Bont looks back and they talking him playing again permanent mid.

    Dilemma

    I have two on field outs –
    -Lynch (Crows). (cover Parsons and Beech). Injury TBC but hopefully 1 week (if anyone has any news on him would appreciate hearing it)
    -Scooter. (cover H. Greenwood). Injury 1
    1 week but injury prone so precautions could be taken.

    There’s no one good to trade Parsons to in the FWD or Mid (Greenwood DPP) unless people rate Hibberd or C. Wagner. I want to trade Stewart to Witherdan before I miss the boat, leaves one trade left.

    I can trade Lynch to any forward (Yeo, Menegola preferred options) or trade Scooter to 667K (Kelly, Martin, Rocky, Sidebum, Treloar, etc). Greenwood is better cover than Parsons/Beech but I want to keep Lynch (unless he’s going to miss more than one week).

    Please I’m stumped, ranked 524

    Not sure what trades to make this round. Need to get rid of Scott Selwood and eventually upgrade Marchbank in DEF and Roughhead in FWD. I have $189k in the bank and the following team –

    Def: Laird, Taylor Adams, Newnes, Marchbank, Jones, Newman (Luke Ryan, Scharanberg)
    Mid: Tom Mitchell, Dangerfield, Ablett, JPK, Whitfield, Mark Murphy, Heppell, Scott Selwood (Mountford, Cousins)
    Ruck: Martin, Nankervis (Soldo, Darcy Cameron)
    Fwd: Robbie Gray, Heeney, Sheed, Dahlhaus, Macrae, Roughhead (Greenwood, Callum Brown)

    I’m thinking:
    1) Scott Selwood –> Bontompelli or Dylan Shiel
    2) Marchbank –> Jake Lloyd

    OR
    1) Selwood –> Bontompelli or Dylan Shiel
    – Hold Marchbank for another week and
    2) Cousins or Scharenberg –> Witherden

    Any help/advice is greatly appreciated. Still have a holes throughout my team.

      I had him in earlier this week but swapped for Treloar by lockout. Tonight’s form, so far, makes his case for inclusion even stronger next week. Great value and with the form he is now showing you can just about forget the ‘fallen’. On the rise, I reckon, like a Tsunami!?

      If you’re gonna go Gawn, that’s an buy-in for 2 weeks from now, depending on break-evens. Kreuz is gonna stay averaging 100+, so he should change +/- too much in price, so you can make the decision between them then as well.

    Horrible week from me, in my best year (ranked in top 1000 at the start of the round)

    Laird 76, Hanners 51, Merrett 76 (c), Stef 74, Parsons 44, Beech 39, Hanley 26 (took a punt based on low price, after a 120, and on what he has done in the past)

    My defence and midfield is ok with no rookies in my starting side. My forward line is a big worry with Parsons, Beech, Brown and Polson. Parsons seems to have good job security as he keeps his spot no matter how bad his scores are, Beech, Brown and Polson could all be out next week
