    Into the next round for finals and need help with a trade.

    I could either go

    Sidebottom > Oliver


    Trade Rockliff out (who my opponent has) and trade in Macrae.

    Help would be appreciated. Im thinking of swapping out Sidey to Oliver.

    • Tom

      August 12, 2018 at 8:28 pm

      I’d probably lean towards second option due to fact that macrae has carlton next round and sidey still has the ability to go big on his day in comparison to rocky on current form, especially with rocky having not the greatest TOG.

        August 12, 2018 at 9:53 pm

        I’m with Tom on this one

        GF this week for my league.. going to get rid of Neale and can bring in anyone.. likely to be out of Cripps Oliver or Matt Crouch..

        Oliver having West Coast worries me slightly
        Cripps should go big with a nice match up though wasn’t the case today
        Matt Crouch has the Roos at home..

        Or another option? Don’t have Kelly but might get the Sydney tag which also worries me..


        • Punchy

          August 13, 2018 at 10:07 pm

          Cripps. Didn’t go so well against Freo as he was playing away. Has been scoring much better at home this season as opposed to when the Blues travel

  2. Tom

    August 12, 2018 at 8:26 pm

    Hey everyone,
    Got 288k up my sleeve and will be upgrading e.curnow and phillips out of midfield. Do people think I should upgrade one of them to cripps/oliver and then the other to someone like duncan, pendlebury selwood.


    don’t go for one of those top two guys and chase two POD’s such as out of Ablett, Beams, Ross even.


    • Daniel Kotronis

      August 12, 2018 at 8:56 pm

      I would probably go for Ablett (Albeit if he isnt rested) and either Cripps/Oliver. If you can’t afford Cripps/Oliver. Go for Macrae

  3. blimp

    August 12, 2018 at 8:34 pm

    Hey who is the best sixth defender. I think the top 5 are locked in, but I’m finding Simpson too flaky… is it:
    Witherden $654k
    Crisp $535k
    McDonald $596k
    … someone else…

    • Daniel Kotronis

      August 12, 2018 at 8:54 pm

      Either T.McDonald or Witherden.

    • Jono

      August 13, 2018 at 4:13 pm

      If you want a real outside the box bet, Brodie Smith is back and pumped out a ton this week. Mid $500k and could be a real POD pick for a rankings move.

      Otherwise, I’d say McDonald if you’re looking consistency or Witherden if you want to bet on a big score to win the Prelim. Problem with Witho though is that he’ll play WCE in the last rd, kind of a tough match up

  4. Daniel Kotronis

    August 12, 2018 at 8:53 pm

    Hey, want to trade out Hurn, but don’t know who to bring in.

    Whitfield + $10K

    Menegola + $102K
    Mundy + $146K

    Macrae +$56K
    Ross + $46K

    Thanks for the help

    • Kradezy

      August 12, 2018 at 10:01 pm

      Whitfield is a must have

  5. Matt

    August 12, 2018 at 9:43 pm

    Dusty to Pendles/ Duncan
    Wingard to Menegola


    Dusty to Ablett
    Westhoff to Menegola?

    • Matt

      August 17, 2018 at 5:46 pm

      2nd option :)

  6. Colla01

    August 12, 2018 at 9:57 pm

    Farrell > Rookie Defender
    Lienert > Crisp


    Farrell > Rookie Defender
    Shuey > Cripps/Oliver

      August 12, 2018 at 10:00 pm


  7. Paull

    August 12, 2018 at 11:07 pm

    O’Riordan > Nash
    Phillips > Beams/Ablett


    O’Riordan > 170k defender
    Phillips > Ross

    Any other suggestions welcome.

  8. Mad Fish

    August 12, 2018 at 11:16 pm

    Phillips –> Beams and Parker –> Cogs good trades? Can’t afford the big dogs in Oliver or Cripps.

  9. Devon

    August 13, 2018 at 8:33 am

    DEF: yeo, lloyd, lienert, witho, Weller, Hurn (Ridley, appleby)
    MID: Polec, titch, cripps, fritsch, Parker, coniglio, menegola, ross (constable, mutch)
    RUC: Jacobs, Gawn (Cameron, Flynn)
    FWD: caddy, miles, gray, Smith, franklin, Hutchings (wilson, keeffe)

    14K in bank. Who do I swap in/out to try and maximise my points scored this week?

  10. McGlovins

    August 13, 2018 at 10:09 am

    Anyone rate Brodie Smith? The mail was that he worked really hard in rehab and has hit the ground running in his second game back on the weekend with 101.

    Only $539K and .5% ownership! Has North at home this week and Carlton away for the GF. I’m giving serious consideration given the lack of D6 options at the moment.

    • blimp

      August 13, 2018 at 4:14 pm

      Hmmmm that’s interesting! I’m scratching my head for a D6 too. Is he riskier than crisp at $535k who has a L3 average of 93?

    • Jono

      August 13, 2018 at 4:25 pm

      I picked him up in draft and am thinking of doing the same in classic to be honest. A few others perhaps in better form but its an easy sideways trade from Simpson that lets you spend cash elsewhere

  11. Billy

    August 13, 2018 at 10:30 am

    Trade Sidebottom or Gibbs and to who (can get any player)
    Already have Titch, Macrae, Kelly, Merret, Oliver, Cripps

    • McGlovins

      August 13, 2018 at 10:42 am

      Seb Ross?

    • Mad Fish

      August 13, 2018 at 10:55 am

      Matt Crouch is pretty consistent and his run home is pretty good with North and Carlton.

  12. Euman


    August 13, 2018 at 11:25 am

    2,409 Euman Tigers and first time my main team has beaten my 2 alt teams all year. Won so through to next final, had already won draft final week before so week off so through there too.

    Coincidence am playing my brother KNICKERS in both Classic and Pro in finals matches this week. So obviously won’t be a GF replay for us this year as one has to go

    Good luck Bro

  13. David

    August 13, 2018 at 12:23 pm

    thoughts on bringing in seb ross for one of gibbs or sidebottom?

  14. Thrice

    August 13, 2018 at 12:41 pm

    Martin > Grundy


    J.Steven > Oliver?

  15. Andy.J

    August 13, 2018 at 1:07 pm

    Can Ablett bye trusted to replace Kelly, if Kelly is out?

    • Loki

      August 13, 2018 at 5:17 pm

      I brought hm in last week, but I did so bearing in mind that he plays the dockers this week with a terrible 3 game average against them. Having said that, werent his last 3 as a suns player? and now a top 8 position on the line, he should fire up??

      • Andy.J

        August 13, 2018 at 6:17 pm

        Thanks Loki. I’ll think about it closer to the time. Hopefully, Kelly will play.

  16. Simba

    August 13, 2018 at 1:18 pm

    Best defender to bring in under 600k?

    • Andy.J

      August 13, 2018 at 6:22 pm

      Tom McDonald, I guess, but I’ve been getting good 70s from Lienert as a fill-in. He’s only 341,000.

      • Paul

        August 14, 2018 at 11:23 am

        Thanks Andy. Already playing Lienert at D6 but was looking at options to upgrade him as he is my last rookie.

  17. Schods

    August 13, 2018 at 3:03 pm

    DEF: Whitfield, Yeo, Lloyd, Laird, Shaw, Burton (Lienert, Nash)
    MID: Mitchell, Oliver, Cripps, Merrett, J.Kelly, Coniglio, Beams, Neale (Freeman, Wilson)
    RUC: Gawn, Martin (Pierce, Cameron)
    FWD: Smith, Dangerfield, Rockliff, McLean, Hogan, R.Gray (Daniels, Frampton)

    Have 267k in bank
    Shaw looks like a definite out, so likely to Brayshaw and Hogan (if doesn’t get up) to Heeney. Any other thoughts?

    • Daniel Kotronis

      August 13, 2018 at 11:10 pm

      Shaw to Brayshaw and Hogan to T.McDonald if you can afford

  18. Andy.J

    August 13, 2018 at 6:26 pm

    Speaking of which, who to trade for Brayshaw: Simpson or Lienert?

    Simpson seems to be slowing down and hasn’t been scoring more than Lienert anyway.
    Also, my opponent has Lienert.

    Field tom phillips or luke shuey this week
    and sean darcy or matthew lobbe?

    • Paul

      August 14, 2018 at 12:11 pm

      Field Shuey & Darcy. Lobbe might be affected by Casboult sharing ruck duties.

  20. M8

    August 13, 2018 at 9:46 pm

    DEF: Whitfield, Yeo, Brayshaw, Lloyd, Laird, Simpson (Lynch, Smith)
    MID: Mitchell, Cripps, Merrett, Kellly, Crouch, Coniglio, Macrae, Sidebottom (Narkle, Freeman)
    RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (Pierce, Cameron)
    FWD: Dangerfield, McLean, Smith, Wingard, Rockliff, Heeney (Ahern, Greene)

    Cash: $48k

    Bit stuck on trades could go Kelly to Gaz if he’s out and Smith down to Paton. Thoughts?

  21. Donald

    August 13, 2018 at 10:31 pm

    Who goes first – Sidebottom or Gibbs? Can get anyone but would prefer to be unique

    • Imac

      August 14, 2018 at 4:04 am

      Neither goes. Both will be offensively good I’m the last two games. Both will average 120. Look elsewhere for changes. Gawn is banged up get Goldstein. You have just received the best advice in the history of this site. You’re welcome friend.

  22. smile

    August 14, 2018 at 2:54 am

    dusty to Gaz
    Gawn (looked sore) to grundy?

  23. Jez

    August 14, 2018 at 8:58 am

    If Kelly gets named this week should I trade him anyway? Worried that the concussion would affect his form.

    • Paul

      August 14, 2018 at 12:13 pm

      Yes trade. Concussed players have been avg on return from concussion and Kelly playing Swans who aren’t his favourite team to play.

  24. Smile

    August 14, 2018 at 12:13 pm

    dusty to Gaz
    Gawn (looked sore) to grundy??

  25. Rohan

    August 14, 2018 at 1:25 pm

    Would one kind soul care to tell me how to work out breakevens? I am aware there are sites to access it on, but I would like to know how it’s done. Cheers

  26. Jamie

    August 14, 2018 at 1:30 pm

    Phillips to Beams/Ablett/Ross
    Ed Langdon to Menegola?

  27. Old Mate

    August 14, 2018 at 3:49 pm

    Macrae or Ablett in this week?

  28. Kradezy

    August 14, 2018 at 4:36 pm

    Oliver or Cripps?
