    With ANB out does Whitfield become a better Captain option over Grundy?

    Hayes to Whitfield and $0 bank
    Williams to Whitfield and $200k bank

      May 24, 2019 at 5:15 pm

      Williams out unless you are confident it’s a one week injury. He has done his job well so time to upgrade. Can downgrade Hayes next week if not named

    • Avatar


      May 24, 2019 at 5:26 pm

      Williams first. 200k bank and up/down moves hayes on next week pretty easy, plus he still scores ok if he comes back.

      Zac has done well, but has history with soft tissue, and the adage that there is no such thing as a 1 week hammy

      • Avatar


        May 24, 2019 at 6:00 pm

        Correct. Time for Zac to go. Every week he comes off the field with some sort of injury, and he’s been injury-prone in the past.

    Bewley or Young?

    • Avatar


      May 24, 2019 at 5:13 pm

      I’d go Young out of those two due to match up this week. Price between them isn’t a lot so that’s a non factor unless you need an extra 20k

    • Avatar


      May 24, 2019 at 5:23 pm

      Similar to what Ben said – Young (but I like it more because he has held his place in the team). However if the 17k gets you to someone better with your other trade, get Bewley.

    What are people’s thoughts on Bewley or Balta?

    Will be on the field this week but ultimately back on the bench next week if all goes well!

      May 24, 2019 at 5:21 pm

      Hey mate
      If you already have Balta – Then him.
      If you are bringing one in – cash is king, so Bewley.

    Hey guys and gals.

    Holding Mrouch and Danger in the hope they are back next week and improving my team around them. What option do we think is best of these…

    1) Williams/Hayes to R.Young/Hurn + 71k
    2) Williams/Hayes to R.Young/any mid 772k or less (thinking Cripps or Taranto) + ~30k
    3) Williams/Hayes to Ziebell/Baker or Bewley + ~200k

    1 is probably best for my team (Hurn looking top 3 Def) but worst for byes. All leave me with no DEF cover, but that was a conscious decision so that I can get Mid cover in case cogs is a late out… thoughts?

    • Avatar


      May 24, 2019 at 5:39 pm

      I like 2 with Taranto/Cripps as it likely suits byes better and both are top Mids. Number 1 is a close second though

    • Avatar


      May 24, 2019 at 6:37 pm

      Number 2, with Cripps all day.

      Cripps is a beast, definitely top 8 mid, has the last bye and will be insane this week, I’m expecting him to go close to his BE (161).

      Probably parker, has the easier matchup out of the three.

    Whitfield and Broadbent or Ziebell and Dusty?

  9. Avatar


    May 24, 2019 at 5:47 pm

    DEF: Lloyd, Laird, Williams, Smith, Duursma, Hore (Lockhart, Answerth)
    MID: Treloar, Taranto, Cripps, Cogs, Rockliff, B.Crouch, Walsh, Stack (Hayes, Baker)
    RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Fort, Flynn)
    FWD: Boak, Kelly, Dangerfield, Billings, Worpel, Drew (Moore, Ham)

    167k in the bank
    Williams, Danger, Drew, Moore all out hurt. Do I trade danger? Danger > Ziebell and Drew > Dusty? Not sure to trust dusty to go that big again. Any ideas? cheers.

      Liam, if your team is like mine, I have 6 of last week’s squad not playing this week. I am keeping Danger & Williams, but fair enough that you are going to off-load ZW – I will probably too next week if he doesn’t play. In your position I would target Boak over Ziebell. Boak has performed for 9 consecutive weeks. Ziebell performs spasmodically. This week I’m unloading Hayes & Ross for Taranto and Young. Good luck.

    May 24, 2019 at 7:23 pm

    I went William’s to broadbent and constable to fiorini.
    Means I have all premiums in midfield except 1 rookie.

    Or would you suggest constable to Baker (170k) and williams to whitfield?

    Last week C was on Rocky and VC on Grundy.
    So this week I switched it
    C on Grundy and VC on rocky

    Check my team and somehow C is on Mundy..
    Was looking forward to a 300 captain score.
    Now got hope mundy goes at least 120 this week…

    Over the app Completely useless, they should bring back the old version for 2017…worked fine now its barely functional..

      Yep, the app does seem to be a bit dodgy in some respects.
      It’s the league matchup pages that I find are pretty grim, with head2head and unique/matching players listings all over the shop and inaccurate total (team) scores. It’s all a bit of a shambles really.

    G’day all,
    My opponent has the E on both balta and burgess covering danger up forward. His overall score indicates that he is currently receiving balta’s score when he should be getting the lower of two in burgess. Has anybody experienced this before? Does it not update correctly until all forwards have played or something or is this an error? Any info on this would be greatly appreciated.
