      I don’t think everyone has the effort or time to look through every possible stat, listen to every podcast, read every article or even think about fantasy every week… this is a way for people to quickly sort their teams out with the help of others, that’s why this site is so good. Also, being ‘footy smart’ doesn’t really mean heaps when it comes to fantasy. Heaps of luck is involved, that’s why people ask eachother as to what risks they should take, what players are the safest picks etc. If you think of someone just starting out in fantasy who wants to do well, this is probably the only place you’ll get actually good advice and learn how to play well. All we’ll do in discouraging comments here is make less people play because their teams blow up after picking wrong, which doesn’t help anything in making this game more legitimate and user-friendly overall.

        Well said Joe, I’ll add to that, I’m always checking this site and have been for 11 years. These guys give up so much of their time to help anyone and everyone who wants to relax and have a bit of fun. It’s fantasy footy champ, it’s not the end of the world. Lighten up have a laugh, respect the folks who work hard to make this what it is. At the end of the day these guys really don’t have to do this for us. I for one really appreciate the awesome work, it’s helped me to switch off from the other crap that happens in life and enjoy a new way of looking at the weekend. Power to the legends I say!

    Trades this week:
    Daniel to Crisp.

    Not sure for my second one though, either:
    1) Gawn to Marshall for dpp when Gawn returns, however means I won’t be able to get Whitfield in for a couple of weeks. Would go worpel to Gawn next week because of his good run of games.

    2) fort to Clarke, clarke on bench to cover Gawn if he’s out. Allowing me to go Smith to Whitfield next week if Gawn returns.

    Thoughts would be appreciated..

      Agreed. I think it’s a classic illustration of the Danger (pun intended) of running without emergency cover, especially at this late stage of the season.
      With all the carnage this week I’m heading into this round without any midfield emergency cover, and I don’t like it!
      The ruck line is always especially shitty cos there just aren’t ever enough (any?) low priced options who’re playing regularly. Dual position RUC/FWDs are rare gems – where’s Balta when we need him lol
      This week’s troubles are a timely reminder to keep the emergency cover on our benches! Too much injury landing on us from now on to not be prepared for it hey

    Team pre trades:
    D) Lloyd Houli Caleb Sic Smith Logue (naish/garner)
    M) Jelly TT Cogs Brouch Fyfe Trel Zach Bray (O.Baker/Bewley)
    R) Grundy Gawn (fort/cameron)
    F) Dunk Boak Telly Danger JZ Worp (hanrahan/burgess)

    Thinking Fort/Daniel to Clarke/Crisp. Clarke as max insurance with the E and as a bit of a cow for JS over next month with rooks losing out everywhere. Crisp top 6 defender with ceiling, all D prems are up and down this year, but his ups are higher then others. Leaves 130k bank to help operation get whit ASAP.

    Boak late out sucks … especially as I have him in the mids with no cover. Had Rose as E in forwards so if I’d had any of my other various m/f playing that mid spot and Boak in forwards I would have those extra 57 points. Crappy week this week from several other players plus that 🍩 severely crippling my chance at a hat ☹️
