    Thoughts on Logue, already got Gardner & Naish, only other cheapest downgrade in defence ?
    Not expecting great things but it’s a heartbeat

      The only other one is Stein (I’m tossing up between Logue, Stein & Gardner, see below)

    Logue, Stein or Gardner as a downgrade in DEF this week? (Saving a handy $40k by not going Logue)

    • Avatar


      June 14, 2019 at 5:06 pm

      Logue should at least have good JS. Stein probably not. Gardner will probably be a very low scorer so not worth having.

    G’day fellas which option is better

    OUTS: Broadbent – Clark – Larkey
    INS: Sicily – Logue – Ziebell
    OUTS: Broadbent – Clark – Answerth
    INS: Sicily – Gardner – Ziebell
    OUTS: Broadbent – Clark – Larkey
    INS: Blakely – Gardner – Boak
    OUTS: Broadbent – Clark – Ham
    INS: Daniel – Gardner – Curnow

    Also is Ed Curnow a option? 575k and attended 15CB previously only attened 14 for the year.

      June 14, 2019 at 6:12 pm

      4 is interesting, possibly a real winner if Curnow goes bang which we know he can when set lose in the mids, probably a move I’d save for my missus’ team though.

    Please help!

    Already gone:
    Hore -> Naish
    Cumming -> Logue

    Was going to go Corbett to Boak, but I’m 95% sure I’ll win all my matchups this week (thank you O’Brien!) hence now thinking to chase cash and go Corbett -> D Clarke (via Dunkley). Should I cash-up ($600K in the bank for next week) or look to finalise team and get Boak in/ miss out on D Clarke?

      June 14, 2019 at 6:57 pm

      I reckon I’ll hold off on Macrae this week but am looking at he and Brayshaw next week.

      Boak or Fyfe? I’ve already got an overload of Forwards (Danger, Kelly, Billings, Worpel, Ziebell, Martin and Dunkley) so I’ll have a couple in the midfield for the short term.

    No body considering bringing in N Wilson this week he has scored ok since Blakely has played.

    My Trades this week are
    In Wilson, Blakely and Hind
    Out Broadbent, Hore and Lockhart

      Same here, on both app and website. And the Emergency’s score (for my Bye player Captain) hasn’t been added to the live total either. Oh well, nothing surprises me with this s**t anymore. I’m sure it’ll all be sorted by the time the round ends …?

      My VC score has been added to the total points. But the players score hasnt doubled. Another glitch as usual.

    Was wondering that myself
    Is it at the end of the round once finished?

    Mine 801 from 7 but with VC (Grundy not playing) should be 941

    June 15, 2019 at 1:01 pm

    I’m keeping him in the short term even though I have Grundy/Gawn because it won’t help my trades next week. Possibly trade the following week depending on what happens but one more price rise will be nice

    Also any decent cash cows available?

      June 15, 2019 at 5:16 pm

      I’m interested that you don’t see Worpel as a top six forward? Who’s on your ‘dream’ forwards list then, apart from Boak and Dusty?
      I ask because at this point he’s looking like a keeper. I already have Boak, Danger, TKelly, Dunkley and now Dusty too. Worpel looks pretty good there at F6.
      Don’t get me wrong, I rate Boak and (probably) Dusty higher. It’s just that it seems a backward step to trade out Worpel to get them?

        June 15, 2019 at 6:52 pm

        +1 I wouldnt be trading out any forward or def who averaged over 90 at this stage, youll always have other player to upgrade first

    I might be wrong but I think one member of the Traders ditched Billings during the byes and also brought in Cognilio one week before his bye.

    June 15, 2019 at 10:59 pm

    If you could have any six forwards, which 6 would you take? At the end of the byes, I will have 8 “good/premium” forwards (a couple in the midfield using DPP) so will be looking to upgrade 2 of them to premium mids. I have Boak, Danger, Kelly, Dunkley, Martin, Billings, Ziebell and Worpel.

  28. Avatar


    June 15, 2019 at 11:20 pm

    I have 6 of them ( minus Billings) and bringing Danger in this week
    R15 I will need to start culling and hopefully a decent rookie will be available as Boak in Mids but Daniel will be transferred to Def

    2006 first bye round. Bye round 2 So far I’m 1772 with Kelly and taranto to play. I decided to trade rocky to macrae and double downgrade this week. Leaving my my 3 fattest rookies to trade out tomoz night and get 2 premos in for the last bye round so I have 15 premos on field and 20-21 scores again, I’m going stack to Tom Stewart and I can get any mid I want

          June 16, 2019 at 1:23 am

          Really a triple downgrade. I made 37k on the rocky to macrae trade lol. I was originally trading out answerth. But figured I didn’t need him to get my 2 premos and gives me a extra scorer next week

          • Belly


            June 16, 2019 at 11:53 am

            You never know you might still keep it, there’s only really Ziebell and Coniglio other than the two you have of relevance yet to play. A few will have the C on Kelly.

    • Belly


      June 16, 2019 at 5:40 pm

      I’d say if your top 5000 a score of 1750 will leave you roughly in the same spot.
      I’m looking at just under 1900 and look likely to go from about 3000th to 2000th.

    I’m just glad round 13 is over. It was always planned to be my shittiest week of the byes. Dropped 500 places after scoring 1794, but hopefully everything is smooth sailing from here. I will, however, miss the GWS trio in my team next week; they kept me afloat over the first two rounds of the byes.

      Hard decision, one I have to make myself. Whether to pump up elsewhere to get a good score, and take more free cash with ‘Brien the week after, or part ties now.
      (but Gawn has an easier game in two weeks time than O’Brien will, and should kill the Fremantle ruckman next week)
