    Rookie Roulette, especially when they’re on debut. But, general principle, mids score most points!

    Anyone else sick of goodwin playing brayshaw on a wing? He came 3rd in the brownlow playing rover and was the best ruck to rover clearance combo with gawn for the whole afl…… im being patient but scores 50-70 are too awful to bear

      Its not just on the wing, Goodwin must have instructed to run anywhere but where the ball is or where the ball is going.

        You sir are a donkey. You recommended holding Brayshaw when every person could see he was cooked. I pulled you up on this on another chat. Your opinion is irrelevant. Go away

    I Traded out Brayshaw for Dunkley. I was nearly going to hold Brayshaw but….few thank god I Traded him out.

    And just on L Ryans Mark over Gawn last night when Vardy pushed Gawn into the ground does anyone else think thats disgraceful

      Meh, you gotta take whatever win you can get on a night you are being schooled!
      Vardy had a chance to get in Gawns head. Are you implying you should only trash talk if you are outplaying your direct opponent? Would take many taggers out of the running

    Yeah, Brayshaw strikes again. I had to cover for Cogs being out so had no choice but to keep him.

      Maybe because gaff was everywhere where Brayshaw wanted to go to get the pill only to
      Get worried that he was going to cop a fist to the jaw.

    Depends on how Dunstan score against the Pies today, he might be a good player of difference and may find his way in my Team next week.

    Why wasn’t Grundy listed by Calvin as a captain option?

    • Avatar

      Marcus

      May 19, 2019 at 12:01 pm

      Because Cal goes from whats happened against the opponent and scores that player has had previously. I personally think it’s wrong but these guys are doing a good job. If they where to get everything right they would be like Garry Senior Ablett

        Sack everyone who is working on the AFL Fantasy app immediately and make the CEO and sole programmer the guy who changed the ‘not selected status symbol’ to a red donut. It is the first tweak that has been implemented correctly in over half a decade that actually improves the system!!! SHIA LEBOUF IT!!!

    At least in RDT I have been able to use the loophole to keep Grundy’s score. Rocky is killing me (and many others) in Fantasy.

      if he keeps averaging 70 odd he will drop another 150k at least, but theres always the chance he goes back to his old role AAARGHH why is it like this

      I think ill just cut my losses and use the money to get whitfield in this week, before its all gone

    How’s my luck…
    Had made a few changes to my team, and then sitting on the couch after lockout, i notice the orange tab of captain, on…. CORBETT…. who was covering Drew on field…. HOW.. the heck did the captain get on this guy…. Last i knew it was on GAFF…. Anyway, i write off the weekend, as a loss cause my opponent had Rocky captain!
    In the end i lost by 24 points, all because Williams went down injured in the GWS game, had he scored 80 i would have won!
    Crazy weekend of fantasy. Lesson learnt always double check captain before lockout!!
