    Captain Treloar or Grundy? Can’t split them

    • Connor

      April 12, 2019 at 4:21 pm

      Treloar

      • Jayden Gomes

        April 12, 2019 at 4:29 pm

        I’ve picked Treloar but I have a feeling Grundy could go real big

      • lizard of oz

        April 12, 2019 at 6:27 pm

        Grundy ..look what he’s up against.

  2. Connor

    April 12, 2019 at 4:12 pm

    Need some advice fellas

    Billings, newnes, lambert or dalhaus?

    Current forward is Danger, Kelly, _______, Worpel, Setterfield, Drew.

    • Jayden Gomes

      April 12, 2019 at 4:28 pm

      Have Lambert in draft. Scores fluctuate up and down but with the Richmond outs I think he can average 90-95 across the next month. Billings and Dalhaus can push towards that 100 mark.

      1. Dalhaus 2. Billings

      • Connor

        April 12, 2019 at 4:30 pm

        Im worried that 3 geelong players in my forward line is too much. What do you think?

        • EHDQ

          April 12, 2019 at 6:09 pm

          Depends if you’ve thought about the byes or not.

        • lizard of oz

          April 12, 2019 at 6:31 pm

          If those 3 are Danger.Menegola and the other fella put the kettle on and your feet up.

        • Dan

          April 13, 2019 at 9:40 am

          I believe the bigger concern is the Port Adelaide players in the lead up to the bye rounds. Most of the competitive teams posses Rozzee, Drew, Butters, Duursma, Rocky and Boak. That’s a very difficult problem to navigate come the bye rounds. So i wouldn’t worry too much about 3 cats players

          • Belly

            April 13, 2019 at 10:20 am

            Id say at least 50% of those port players will be gone by the byes, so not really relevant.

          • Dan

            April 14, 2019 at 7:57 am

            @Belly – I doubt it by the way they’re playing. Maybe Drew or Butters but no way will it be 50% of those above mentioned players.

    Getting Stack and Rozee. Do I trade out:
    Scott (M9) and Williams
    OR
    Atkins (M10) and Setterfield?

    • Liam

      April 12, 2019 at 4:15 pm

      Atkins and Setterfield

    • Nicko

      April 12, 2019 at 4:25 pm

      Atkins and Setterfield

    • NK

      April 12, 2019 at 5:19 pm

      Sorry got this the wrong way round*
      Scott and Setterfield or
      Atkins and Williams

  4. Nicko

    April 12, 2019 at 4:13 pm

    Thoughts on trades or is there better trades I can do?

    Burgess to Rozee and Scott to Ross (Bench Clark and field Rozee)

    My team before trades

    DEF: Whitfield, Lloyd, Smith, Williams, Durrsma, Clark (Scrimshaw, Burgess)

    MID: Macrae, Coniglio, Rocky, Sheed, Crouch, Liberatore, Walsh, Constable (Scott, Gibbons)

    Ruck: Grundy, Gawn (Flynn, Fort)

    FWD: Danger, Kelly, Worpel, Setterfield, Drew, Miers (Parker, Balta)

    • Connor

      April 12, 2019 at 4:23 pm

      Can you get stack instead of ross?

      • Nicko

        April 12, 2019 at 4:26 pm

        Nah just a bit of $ off getting Stack unfortunately

    • Dan

      April 13, 2019 at 9:54 am

      Not too bad actually. Maybe look at Sloane over Sheed at some point but its a pretty stable side. Definitely look at placing Rozee at the back and not in the forward line like a lot of folks have done (usually Rozee for Setterfield etc) because that makes it an even spread come bye rounds for the high performing PA players at this stage. Other then that, not too bad mate.

  5. Liam

    April 12, 2019 at 4:15 pm

    Already locked in the first trade

    Scott- Stack

    Need help on the second trade, after the first trade I have 212k to play with

    1. Atkins- Ross
    2. Scrimshaw – Rozee
    3 Setters – Rozee

    • Connor

      April 12, 2019 at 4:23 pm

      Setters to rozee

      • Liam

        April 12, 2019 at 5:03 pm

        Or drew- Rozee

  6. Brendon

    April 12, 2019 at 4:17 pm

    Joyce playing or not

    • Briby

      April 12, 2019 at 5:31 pm

      There’s two Def. Joyce, D.Joyce not playing. If you have E on Hore, all good.

  7. Chris

    April 12, 2019 at 4:38 pm

    give dunkley one more week or trade?

  8. Bavan

    April 12, 2019 at 4:43 pm

    would you consider bring in lockart this week (assuming he is back next week) and putting him on the field to bank Hore’s 93 as a rookie score emergency

    • Frank

      April 12, 2019 at 5:30 pm

      Lockart is Locked out

      Wouldn’t grab a non-playing rook anyway. Find another trade that can try make you up 20-30 points that Hore likely has over Duurs/Clark/Scrim/etc.

    • lucyluvless

      April 12, 2019 at 8:27 pm

      Never a good idea to bring in a bloke who’s not playing. A lot can happen between now and next week when you expect him to play – he could get injured at training or be run over by a bus …

  9. J

    April 12, 2019 at 4:47 pm

    Should I take Lloyd’s score of 122??

    • Brad

      April 12, 2019 at 4:54 pm

      Am i crazy going rocky down to libba, banks me nearly 200k..if rocky does what merrett did after his k.o he could be in for a price drop with his current high b.e.. also libba could be near 700k after 3 more games?? Or should i just go setters to rozee?

      • lizard of oz

        April 12, 2019 at 6:35 pm

        Q
        A yes

    • lucyluvless

      April 12, 2019 at 8:30 pm

      It’s 244 points in the bank. You can take the risk with another player as your Captain … but he might get knocked out on 43 like Rocky last week. Never really know what’s going to happen in a game of footy lol

  10. luke

    April 12, 2019 at 5:02 pm

    who do i C…. Llyod’s 122, macrae or grundy?

    • michaelt1

      April 12, 2019 at 7:32 pm

      Safe option is Lloyd, Collingwood haven’t conceded a 120+ score yet this year, and Grundy is up against English. I have those three players too and I’m going Grundy

  11. Liam

    April 12, 2019 at 5:05 pm

    Don’t have an obvious 2nd trade I can think of. Would Billings to Tim Kelly be worth it?

  12. Liam

    April 12, 2019 at 5:07 pm

    Hey lads stuck with trades this week
    Thoughts appreciated Got 145 before trades

    First trade is I’m thinking of going

    Scott-Stack
    Setters or drew- Rozee

    Or just Atkins- Ross

    Thoughts

    Whitfield, Lloyd, Smith, Williams, Duursma, Clark( Scrimshaw, Hore)

    Macrae, Cripps, Mcrouch, Brayshaw, Bcrouch, Libba, Walsh, Constable(Scott, Atkins)

    Grundy, Mummy

    Danger, Kelly Worpel, Setters, Drew, Parker(Petruccelle,Burgess)

  13. lewie14

    April 12, 2019 at 5:21 pm

    Scott & Atkins to Stack & Ross for nothing else but a cash grab and bench warmers??

    • lewie14

      April 12, 2019 at 5:22 pm

      Or Scott to Stack & Atkins to Rozee but only leaves under $20k for next week. Is Rozee another flash in the pan ?

      • lewie14

        April 12, 2019 at 5:23 pm

        Sorry, meant Setterfield to Rozee

      • Liam

        April 12, 2019 at 5:24 pm

        Yeh that’s what I’m thinking, is Rozee worth getting or have I missed the boat

        • Liam

          April 12, 2019 at 5:28 pm

          You think flick setters before drew

          • lewie14

            April 12, 2019 at 5:30 pm

            Drew looks to.make more cash this week with lower BE and playing tigers so give him another week at least. Dont like chasing points always backfires and thinking Rozee could do just that….not sure

      • Frank

        April 12, 2019 at 5:31 pm

        Rozee gets a few more weeks 65-70 scores and he’ll push comfortably past 500k

        • Liam

          April 12, 2019 at 5:34 pm

          So it’s wortth paying 70k to get Rozee only to make 140k??

        • Belly

          April 12, 2019 at 5:43 pm

          Fine if you already have him but getting him now and tying up 385k to gain 100 to 125k whilst getting 65-70 points isn’t worth it in my mind.

          • Frank

            April 12, 2019 at 5:52 pm

            except he’d be making more money than anyone else around that price point and similar to people 200k below whose scoring potential and JS is nowhere near as good.

            With all the trades in AF you need to sometimes just ride guys for 3-4 weeks to make the best amount of money possible.

          • Belly

            April 13, 2019 at 11:24 am

            Your basically paying for a mid pricer who might get around 70 points, you wouldn’t do it at the start of the season so don’t know why you would now. If it was 90-100 ave then I get it. Cash is relevant but if your missing 30 points each week your 100-150 behind where you could have been if you use the $200k to get to a true premo.

          • lizard of oz

            April 13, 2019 at 12:25 pm

            Nice call Belly. People get too caught up with BEs early in the season.
            If you have the right rookies/ they’re making cash and scoring points /
            each of which is important/ but the highest score at seasons end wins.

    • Rubitonurnuts

      April 12, 2019 at 6:46 pm

  20. J

    Do I trade Scott or Gibbons to Stack?? Already have $150k in the bank

    • Andy

      April 12, 2019 at 6:20 pm

      Gibbons is playing and will make cash even with a low score, so it has to be Scott to go.

  24. Nuts

    April 12, 2019 at 6:09 pm

    Witts or Mumford, who scores more? Struggling to find a second trade, so thinking Witts to Mumford for that extra bank

    April 12, 2019 at 6:10 pm

    Gone Scott to Stack.
    Do I go Gibbons to Libba leaving only 5k but meaning I just have 2 mid rooks (walsh, const)
    Or do I get Rozee for Drew/Setters/Scrimshaw/Clark?

  26. Rubitonurnuts

    April 12, 2019 at 6:11 pm

    Setterfield up to Rozee (plays – leaves me with $150k) or down to Petrucelle (bench – leaves me with $250k) ?

  27. connor

    April 12, 2019 at 6:19 pm

    DEF: Lloyd, Smith, Williams, Duursma, Clark, Scrim (WIlkie, Lockhart)

      April 12, 2019 at 7:45 pm

      It’s the lowest score out if the two so coz he didn’t play not sure it counts as 0 or not. So wouldn’t run the risk

  35. michaelt1

    April 12, 2019 at 7:21 pm

      April 14, 2019 at 12:19 pm

      Yeah dodged a bullet mate. I had traded him and had him on the ground but had last minute doubts so bought in 2 rookies for bench cover. Happy with the decision now. Just need my Cripps captain to shine today !!!
