    def: laird lloyd bray simpson yeo whit
    mid: titch j.kelly zerret sidey gibbs neale ablett zorko
    ruck: gawn stef
    fwd: mclean wingard rocky billings deledio

    generally happy with team, fwd line needs work though

    thinking of going:
    – stef to grundy and billings to heeney

    next few weeks will downgrade sier and giro and upgrade ahern and deledio, finally maybe upgrade neale to macrae potentially

      missing 1 fwd, the trades look right though

    In need of major help!

    Dusty > Cripps
    Franklin > Zorko/Ablett
    Gray > Selwood/Sidebottom

    I want to trade one of these 3, which one do I go?!

    • PowerAde

      July 31, 2018 at 6:34 pm

      franklin to zorks or ablett decent. I prefer zorks but everyone is raving about ablett

    DEF: Laird, Whitfield, Brayshaw, Yeo, Lloyd, Simpson (O’Riordan, Duman)
    MID: Mitchell, Merrett, Kelly, Cripps, Coniglio, Heppell, Shuey, Ahern (Sier, Smith)
    RUC: Grundy, Gawn
    FWD: Smith, Danger, Westhoff, Rocky, Heeney, Mclean (Baker, Wilson)

    1st trade is Duman to Freeman leaving me with $155k to spend.

    I can go Ahern to anyone $602k or cheaper but there aren’t many options at that price. (Can get someone from any position with DPP) or am I better off upgrading someone like Mclean or Shuey to another premo mid and play Ahern. Can get pretty much anyone else except Gaff.

    Any suggestions appreciated

    • PowerAde

      July 31, 2018 at 6:37 pm

      do you have the double chance? if so, I think you could run that team back and double downgrade IF, a big if, you have the big O as ruck rook (you don’t show). he may be worth cashing in and bank this week and double upgrade 2 next week?

      • Old Mate

        July 31, 2018 at 6:57 pm

        Must win this week. Finished 8th and playing the team that has high scored in my league for the last three weeks.

        Both ruck bench players are 170k so no good there.

        • Aaron

          August 1, 2018 at 9:17 am

          No one worth getting at 602k, especially not in a must win situation. Upgrade either McLean or Shuey imo, probably McLean.

          • Old Mate

            August 1, 2018 at 12:30 pm

            Cheers, that was my thinking. Going to go with Mclean to Crouch at the moment.

            Will mean I am only missing two players from the most popular 22 and still ranked over 15k.

          • stoo

            August 2, 2018 at 7:25 pm

            Poor ranking for such a good team. Funny year.

    • Grovers Guns

      August 1, 2018 at 9:20 pm

      McClean to Oliver for a must win (Ahern DPP)

  4. PowerAde

    July 31, 2018 at 6:30 pm

    pretty certain I will go martin to Grundy but other options are Curnow to macrae or tuohy to simmo/Lloyd.

    any advice appreciated

    • Old Mate

      July 31, 2018 at 6:56 pm

      I would go for Grundy. He’s killing it week in week out

  5. Benny

    July 31, 2018 at 6:52 pm

    G’day all,
    Should I go nank to grundy or walters to devon smith? I reckon that grundy will most likely outscore devon but nank will probs outscore walters. Secondly, if I go nank to grundy should I field ahern over walters?
    Cheers fellas

    • Aaron

      August 1, 2018 at 9:21 am

      Thats tough. I think both combinations would score equally in most situations. Nank probably more likely to burn you though should you offload him.

  6. Peter Jackson

    July 31, 2018 at 7:17 pm

    I’m thinking of giving buddy a last chance this week at home against Collingwood who have a lot of injury concerns in their backline. What’s everyone think??

    • Aaron

      August 1, 2018 at 9:15 am

      Brave, but it could be pulled off. I’d still trade to a better forward if you don’t have any other concerns to address.

  7. Aaron

    August 1, 2018 at 9:22 am

    Should I go:

    McLean -> Cripps
    Taranto -> Cripps
    Martin -> Grundy

    • Schods

      August 1, 2018 at 9:39 am

      I’d be doing the McLean trade personally, but Stef has been down recently but averages 98 against North in his last 6 games.

    • Paul

      August 2, 2018 at 10:15 pm

      This week go Taranto>Cripps due to Taranto not playing.

  8. Schods

    August 1, 2018 at 9:32 am


    DEF: Whitfield, Laird, Lloyd, Shaw, Savage, Burton (O’Riordan, Lienert)
    MID: Mitchell, Cripps, Oliver, Merrett, Kelly, Beams, Yeo, Coniglio (Sier, J.Smith)
    RUC: Gawn, Martin (Cameron, Frampton)
    FWD: Smith, Dangerfield, Rockliff, McLean, Hogan, Gray (Daniels, Wilson)

    Thoughts are Burton and Sier down to 170k MID rookies and swing Smith back and play Lienert as D6. Got the double chance in main league, leaves me with $408k in the bank to upgrade Smith to Macrae/Gaff next week while swinging Yeo back into the backline.

    In a draft team who do you trade first? Crisp or Hurley?

    I feel crisp is better but role has changed due to Collingwoods large amount of injuries to defenders but Hurley might start playing more of a lockdown role

  10. Confused

    August 1, 2018 at 12:22 pm

    Want to upgrade Tim Kelly but only have $630k to spend. Thinking either Shuey or Rocky but open to any suggestions.

    • Paul

      August 2, 2018 at 10:14 pm

      Look at Sloane too. But based on match up I’d go Rocky. Pumped out a 127 last Showdown.

  11. jeremy

    Finished 5th so disappointed with this year on myself, who do I priority trade out this week


    • Kradezy

      August 2, 2018 at 10:59 am

      DBJ first

    • Paul

      August 2, 2018 at 10:11 pm

      Taranto as he isn’t playing. Try and grab some cash and upgrade to Dunkley.

  12. Josh S

    August 1, 2018 at 8:54 pm

    Neale > Oliver, Cripps or Gaff?
    Franklin > Dunkley?

    Franklin underperforming and possibly injured and Neale likely to receive the Hutchings tag..

    • Paul

      August 2, 2018 at 10:07 pm

      Neale > Cripps. Cripps has been in beast mode last few weeks and Neale more than likely cops the tag from Hutchings.

  13. dale

    August 1, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    Option 1- Downgrading a rookie leaving me enough cash to go hogan to dev smith
    Option 2- Hogan to Dunkley and Parker to Ablett.

    • Kradezy

      August 2, 2018 at 11:00 am

      option 2

  14. stoo

    August 2, 2018 at 7:19 pm

    Which upgrade is more important? Each are my worst option for each line to the best I don’t have. Thinking 3?

    1) Witherden to Brayshaw
    2) Parker to Macrae
    3) Martin to Grundy
    4) Billings to Smith

    • j

      August 2, 2018 at 9:02 pm

      Either 3 or 4. Over the course of the next 3 weeks, option 3 will net the most points, so that one.

      Narkle to Freeman Mihocek to Crozier,field Farrell..The Risky trade Martin to Lobbe,O’Riordan to McDonald,Crozier

  16. Paul

    August 2, 2018 at 10:04 pm

    Is Grundy a must have?

    Only way to get Grundy this week:
    1) Howe to Mihocek ( already have Lienert on field )
    2) Sauce to Grundy

    or replace Howe with Whitfield, Simpson or Witho and leave Sauce in my ruck for another possibly 2 weeks.

    Any other options you have are welcome.

  17. Kradezy

    August 2, 2018 at 10:06 pm

    Still have Hurley on field, worth fielding lienert over him as a gamble?

    • Paul

      August 2, 2018 at 10:08 pm

      Hurley should be fine this week. Doesn’t have a tall to match up on like last week with Franklin.
