    DEF: Lloyd, Houli, Laird, Daniel, Smith, Stack (Answerth, Naish)
    MID: Kelly, Merrett, Coniglio, B.Crouch, Rockliff, Cripps, Brayshaw, Clarke (Baker, Hind)
    RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (Cameron, Fort)
    FWD: Boak, Dunkley, Kelly, Ziebell, Dusty, Worpel, (Burgess, Balta)

    BANK: 24k

    Currently leaning towards the following:
    Smith, Balta, ZIEBELL to Logue, Danger, Sicily(?) (via Daniel DPP)

    However, if a decent 170k fwd/def rook is named then I am thinking I would be better off trading stack to the rook in order to keep Ziebell and bank the cash for next week.

    Main concern this week is I can only get to a max of 18 playing (and this is assuming Rocky is playing).

    Anyone see any other options for me?

    Cheers in advance.

      Why would you trade Ziebell? Why don’t you go Baker -> Logue via Answorth in the first instance.

      Your team is so R13 heavy this was always going to happen. Why don’t you focus on upgrades where you end up with Premiums replacing your bye players – > i.e. Brodie Smith -> Sic or Stewart and even potentially trading out Cripps?

      Would be amazed if you got 18 this week

        June 18, 2019 at 10:19 am

        Yep. Well and truly cooked this last week of byes as I couldn’t resist getting in Naish, Houli and Cogs when they were value a couple weeks back.

        Rockliff out means I can only get to 17 so think I need to trade him to Macrae given the dearth of rookie options and my need for points this week.

        Currently thinking:
        Smith, Rockliff, Balta —> Logue, Macrae, Danger

        That look like the best approach?

          June 21, 2019 at 2:09 am

          Not sure about that, feels like you are trading someone who could be your D6 for a rookie, sideways trading an injured premium and only upgrading with Danger, though having said that to get him from Balta is a good get.

            June 21, 2019 at 8:47 am

            Good call. Have instead gone Rocky, Balta, Stack to Danger, Logue, Sicily with $0k ITB. Leaves D.Clarke as my only room on field next week!

            This week going to be a horror show though…

    My Team:
    DEF: Lloyd, Laird, Daniel, Smith, Hore, Duursma (Naish, Logue)
    MID: Duncan, Merrett, B.Crouch, Cogs, Rockliff, Macrae, Cripps, Walsh (Clarke, Baker)
    RUCK: Grundy, Witts (Fort, Flynn)
    FWD: Boak, Dangerfield, Kelly, Dusty, Ziebell, Worpel (Young, Gardner)

    Cash: $209k.

    My first trade is Witts to Gawn which gives me $68k spare, after that I’m not sure what other trades to make, I have 17 on field considering Young won’t play so need to make some trades with bye players I’d say.
    Thoughts lads?

    Bloody Rockliff is out again. Do I just cut my losses and trade him now or just hold again. I’ll have 20 playing if I hold, 21 if I trade if that helps. Singlehandly ruined my team Rockliff has.

      First issue, maybe Gardner is a bit useless as a cash cow? We only get the rookies to make $$ so if he’s not doing that then maybe swap him for another who is? Or perhaps his dpp is valuable given the rest of your squad?
      Re your other forwards, as they’re all mid/fwd dpp this shouldn’t be a problem for now? Unless your midfield is chock-a-block with premos (lucky you!) You’ve got the option, when a rookie mid is fattened up and ready to move on, to shift one of those fwds. Could be very handy if there are no mids (rooks or premos) that you want to grab at a particular time?
      I see what you’re getting at, just noting that you don’t have to offload one of your seven non-rookie fwd as soon as the byes are over.

    Stack > Logie
    Walsh > Macrae
    Answerth > Laird

    Taking abit of a risk here bringing Laird in, but I don’t trust any other DEF premos. Have 18 playing. I think Macrae is a safer option now with libba out. Look at what he did last year without Libba, and last round. 196k Bank.

      June 19, 2019 at 11:05 am

      I reckon wait a week on Answerth > Laird and find another trade to do. Not worth going from someone playing to a bye player when you only have 18 on field.

    RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (Fort, Cameron)
    FWD: Boak, Dangerfield, Kelly, Dunkley, Rozee, Atkins (Corbett, Gardner)

    Bank $374k

    My first trade was to get Dunkley in as above for Miers.

    I am not sure if I trade out Atkins for a prem forward or try and get a better midfield..

    Any thoughts would be appreciated

    Need some advice with trades

    Team before trades.
    Def: Answerth, Lloyd, Sicily, Logue (Smith, Laird, Houli, Naish)
    Mid: Gaff, Baker, Fyfe, Duursma (Fiorini, Cripps, Walsh, Crouch, Coniglio)
    Ruck: A.Smith, Fort (O’Brien, Witts)
    FWD: Dangerfield, Kelly, Daniel, Worpel, Boak, Gardner (Larkey, Corbett)

    Cash: $464

    I’m being beaten consitently in the rucks and want to bring in Grundy or Gawn (Gawn to go large against Darcy).

    Corbett > J.Dunkley
    Witts> Gawn
    Cripps> K.Dunkley (or other FWs rookie) – Cripps has fallen out of favour this trade leaves me $352k to get in Grundy (from ROB) or upgrade Baker or Answerth to a premium (Taranto, Zerret or Kelly).

    • Avatar


      June 18, 2019 at 4:35 pm

      I would normally advise against sideways and encourage you to hold Cripps. But there are 3 players you must have in fantasy that you just mentioned that are far more important than holding Cripps. Every team needs to have Grundy,gawn and dunkley. So do it. Going gawn first is a good move. Because he will destroy freo this week

      June 18, 2019 at 5:03 pm

      if you’re looking for an excuse to NOT get him, I won’t be able to do that. However, last year you saw what he did a whole season without Libba in the team and also what he did in 2 quarters of footy last week. Good luck on getting him in after this week!

    • Avatar


      June 18, 2019 at 7:14 pm

      Get macrae in. Libba out for a month. The price you pay is low risk but the reward is high. He’s still over 200k down on the start of the year.

    June 18, 2019 at 5:00 pm

    Baker + Larkey + Stack out

    Danger + Blakely + Wooller (or FWD Rookie) in

    Still not sold on Blakely, but – can get to Danger or Dunkley – which would be better?

    First two trades out are easy: Larkey + Baker
    Then it’s a toss-up between Stack, Parker, Brayshaw

    1) Baker + Larkey + Stack > Danger + ?Blakely + ?Wooller (which other 170K fwd is close?)
    2) Baker + Stack + Brayshaw > Danger + Dunkley + ?Wooller
