      Wingard for Devon Smith, no question.
      Smith is the number one fantasy forward. Wingard’s up and down all over the place and tends to score less in away games.

    Bringing in J Cripps into backline seeing he has gone over 100 in his last 2 games. Have had Ablett in my side for the last 3 weeks as you don’t have to be an expert to know he will play every game. Then next week I’ll bring Grundy in for the last game of the year.

      Are Ahern and Lienert on the field or bench?
      Ahern’s been dropped and Lienert’s playing, so Ahern’s ripe for upgrading.

      Hold Sidebottom and trade out Pendles I reckon.
      Pendles is more likely to be rested and has looked a bit tired the last couple of games imo.
      Sidey has a good record against both Port and Freo.

      Trade Hurn to Witho. I’m contemplating Cutler myself but he’s not as consistent as witho

    August 17, 2018 at 6:37 pm

    Which trade to do?

    Simmo for cutler.
    Pendles for Jelwood, Sloane or Duncan.
    Rocky for Hawkins. Good go big against freo and the suns maybe

    Need choice out of 3 options.
    1. Kelly+Gibbs -> Ross+Fyfe
    2. Kelly+Gibbs-> Beams+Cogs
    3. Kelly+Ahern-> Premo + 170k

    If i pick option 2 my opponent and I will only have 4 uniques.
    Heppell+Devon Smith+ Heeney+ Cripps vs Wingard+Rockliff+Duncan+Shuey (chances are they will trade shuey though)

      If I’m still alive next week in my one remaining league, Rocky to go will be the number one priority.

        Looking like the (fallen) Pig may well lose me my prelim. Whatever happens I’ll keep playing, if only for ranking. Buggered if I know who I’ll be able to afford to bring in with Rocky’s price so low, but he’s going for sure.
        Sad to see a Pig fall so far ?

      August 18, 2018 at 5:26 pm

      Hinkley put him into a tagging role, and they lost. Next week, Port are playing at home, and with finals realistically out of their grasp surely you’d think they wouldn’t employ Rocky in a failure of a role?

      Either way, gone for me by lock out tonight. Menegola in, will feast on GC next week. Keeping Wingard – averages way better in Adelaide.

        Agreed. But I just don’t get Hinkley …
        The biggest problem with Rocky’s scoring has been his low TOG imo. Around 65-70% – makes no sense to me. Either he’s fit to play or he isn’t, so what’s the reason for it?

    Looks like the Crozier >> Witherton trade has cost me about 80 points and 4 preliminary league finals.

    season over.

      August 18, 2018 at 8:06 pm

      I’m still in there in a big way. My opponent’s mistake was trying to match me by bringing in Whitfield for Kelly. I was already worried about Whitfield because I thought the Swans would shut him down, so that suited me fine. I’m hoping his Beams doesn’t go too big.

        Not really. Most of them are only 4-5 uniques. Sucks, having finished top of the ladder before finals in a few leagues.

      It seems that my opponent in SC also had Witherden. I’ve got Grundy as captain to his Tich so, unexpectedly, it looks like I’m in the GF.

    Did that brilliant analyzer of numbers, Cal, say something about a 180+ for Mitchell this round?

      The Cricket

      August 18, 2018 at 10:47 pm

      Nah, to be fair he predicted 140 to 180! I presume Titch copped a tag?

      Why do so many people love to bag out the Traders, especially Calvin and Roy? They’ve entertained us over the years and given us lots of handy info. I don’t hear anyone having a go at Dunny for recommending someone put the big C on Jelwood lol

    • Avatar


      August 19, 2018 at 3:33 am

      Cal’s prediction of 180 sounded like banter to me, not sure how anyone took it to be literal…was definately the right call making him number 1 though. Titch’s scores leading up to this game…157, 187, 160, 146, 130. Last score vs Saints 147. He made the right decision picking him number 1 based on stats without doubt.

      You all have to remember these players are human…no one can predict how the player feels on the day and what tactics the opposition will employ. In any game a player could be stressed, be unwell, maybe had a bad sleep…there are so many variables that can’t be predicted.

      By the logic of these posters each year DT Talk and AFL Fantasy should just pick the top 5 ranked coaches to write the articles and do the podcasts? That makes no logical sense whatsoever.

      Sounds like some people are fed up, so pick your own teams, do your own research, and let the rest of us enjoy this site without the whinging

    I’m actually a fan of toy Roy and funny dunny, at least they set standards on this site and provide in depth analysis , but when it comes to Warnie and Calvin , hmmmm not so much. Beaten them in fantasy all year and they should absolutely write this season off as a failure. I mean this is F- stuff from them. Talk about bringing on the off season ASAP pfftttt. While you at it, take Alan j and his broke back mountain entourage with you as he has had an irrelevant season as well. You’ll thank me later .

    You must be insane. That Dunny article is pure and utter tripe! Tis like watching ground hog day. It’s the same nonsense over and over. Always the same sound bites.

    “If you need captains advice look at Calvin, if you play the other version of fantasy remember you have limited transfers. “Week of Carnage”. “Trust your instincts”. If you nee trade advice go to Roy’s trade advice”.

    It’s utter tripe. But Dunny has convinced people his articles are good
