        It was weird the way so many people were suggesting that coaches offload Duursma, and even Rozee, when of all the Port rookies it’s Butters who’d demonstrated that he has a low ceiling, his highest score being 69. Duursma, Rozee and Drew have all previously posted high scores (for rookies).
        We really can’t expect consistently big fantasy outputs from rookies – most will be up and down. (That’s why the likes of Sam Walsh are so awesome, because they’re out of the ordinary!)
        Glad I traded out Butters. At least that’s one rookie move I’ve made that turned out well – always a crap shoot and, just like every other year, there’s misses as well as hits lol

      You have to move them on sometime and when doing that you occasionally cop an unwelcome score. That’s life and rookies.

    OMG last minute trade change to get in Dahlhaus instead of Billings (Billings has a tough set of games including fantasy killers GWS next week)
    Hope I don’t regret it…

    Hi all

    Is there a place where you can get new Fantasy Prices and BEs before Lockout is over? I had a look on Footywire but couldn’t find any.

    Fanfooty used to do this, but it looks like Monty has given up the ghost a little bit over there.

    Cheers

      Unfortunately, I don’t think anyone provides that. You could look at previous weeks and see how much someone’s price changed after beating the BE by a similar amount to get an approximate idea of price changes for particular players I guess, but http://dtlive.com.au/afl/dataview.php and footywire get the new prices and BEs pretty quickly after lockout lifts.

      DT Live is the only thing I can think of, but it normally updates every round approx a day after lockout, rather than being before lockout is over.

    1.)Brodie Smith Out for Bachar Houli and Burgess for N larkey $ 321 salary
    2.)Brodie Smith for Houli and Scully for tim Kelly $ 73 salary

      None of the above. Most of those trades are a little sideways for my liking. Get rid of Burgess and another rookie or Scully. Two up, or one up one down. In general (i.e., when you don’t have a Warn Chest), if you can’t afford a decent upgrade then double downgrade.

    Time to go now Libba. On the plus side, answerth worth the gamble. Hopefully keeps his spot for awhile.

      Yes, I didn’t see the game but I wonder, if like last week, Libba is not spending as much time in the midfield. At least Daniel was good for me- just brought him in.

        Libba spent chunks forward. Seemed really erratic. Gave away silly frees all night. 4 or 5 in total (he did recieved some to make it a tad better) Daniel bro, He was dead in the water and then was everywhere in the last qtr lol. he was in the 50’s at 3qtr time. I think 55.

          Good trade btw mate. Looks a consistent lock for 80+ a week. Which for a defender is what we’re after.

            I’ve got Daniel in the fwds.
            Next week, all being well, Answerth comes in for Clark in def as res., and Larkey for Parker or Balta in the fwrds as res. Make some cash.

    Goodo. Wherever your playing him. He’s a extremely consistent pick. He may not have a big cieling but You know what your getting each week, plus you can swing him def depending on how season plays out……. answerth a solid trade, I took a punt on him on wed before team sheets and looks like it will pay off (phew!!) Might as well trade Parker for extra cash. It’s dead money now. He ain’t going much higher. Where if balta can string a few 45+ games together. Can make some coin. With riewoldt out for couple months now, balta looks to lock down a spot.

    Cogs and Whitfield will be the big talking points this week. At this early stage, they are both in heavy doubt for next week

      I don’t have Whitfield as yet, and I think I can cover Cogs for a week if need be. As long as Ross plays like he did the other night.

      why are they in doubt? They both played to the end. One has a bum finger and the other a corked thigh. Honestly at times there are too many morons on this site. Both will play next week. End of

          God Andy you are am absolute bellend. Petez said -> “At this early stage, they are both in HEAVY doubt for next week”. This is just scaremongering nonsense. Cogs will play with a splint and protection and Whitfield has a corked thigh. These guys are hard AFL players not social justice lefty ´warriors´.

          This HEAVY doubt is just nonsense and I called it as I saw it. When both play (and they will) you will then see how much of an idiot Petez is and how much of an idiot you are. End of
