    So many holes this week. Went from 850 to 1670 in rank with an 1892 score…

    Probably Baker and Logue to Whitfield and Dunkley so I have some cover mid but I don’t even know.

    Blakely, houli, Fyfe, Logue, Duncan, Martin and Telly all on notice. Merrett excused due to concussion.

      Merrett took a while to get back to normal after concussion last year… wondering if he needs to go? I’m also worried about Houli, seems like he has reverted back to normal which is not a top 6 defender…

      Um, pretty sure he wasn’t concussed. Copped a heavy knock and spent quite a bit of time on the bench in the first half but played out the game (albeit not in top form). They wouldn’t havel him do that if it was concussion.

    can bring in any mid this week, was gonna go kelly so if he plays ill get him, but if not I was gonna go one of these: whitfield, treloar, taranto, or maybe zorko/oliver. Any suggestions?

    I was pretty happy getting 2180 while taking a donut on Gawn.
    Larkey had a 5 goal game to cover Boak for 82.
    Brought in Rocky and put the C on him.
    Held Z Williams through Bye and injury, getting rewarded the last couple.
    Have Hannebery as cover for JKelly if it’s just a week. Should be able to do Larkey down to cheaper rook and Duursma up to Whitfield if named.

    July 7, 2019 at 9:36 pm

    Bring in Whitfield straight away this week (if he plays) or do I go to someone like Stewart or Crisp?

  8. Avatar


    July 7, 2019 at 9:51 pm

    I was happy with the usual suspects: Lloyd, Stewart, Gaff, Macrae, Grundy, O.Brien, Dunkley, Danger.
    I’ll wear Logue’s 30 because I shouldn’t have been playing him anyway.
    Quaynor did better than some of my prems, and Hanrahan covered well for Boak’s unexpected out.

    But… injuries to J.Kelly (Capt), Fyfe, and Dusty, (I was going to bring in Rocky- rule number one: never change your mind), hurt me bad.
    Plus Pendles and Houli-Dooley haven’t cracked a ton since I brought them in.

    Angus Brayshaw… lets not even go there!

    RUC – Grundy, Gawn (Fort, Cameron)

    FOR – Dunkley, Danger, Boak, Martin, Kelly, Worpel (Chol, Gardner)

      If Kelly is out, you could swap him for Cogs and the extra 50k will get you from Stack to Whitfield.

        Cogs is also evidently under an injury cloud.

        July 8, 2019 at 11:39 am

        I’m thinking maybe going Bewley to Quaynor via Duursma DPP and upgrading Stack to Whitfield meaning next week I can downgrade Clarke who’s on my bench to be able to upgrade Duurs to a premo mid. Means my two rookies on field are Quaynor and Logue. Thoughts? If Whitfield doesn’t play I’ll do Stack to a premo mid and Duurs to Whitfield next week

    Ok here we go…
    1727- Look, 2 donuts, Kelly injury as C, hore inj, no midfield tons…
    Rank- much worse than yours I’ll tell you that right now.
    +3- sic dawg(finally), crisp, Marshall, ziebell, hanrahan.
    -3- Blakeley, Boak, taranto, crouch, crouch, bray, Clarke, Duncan, basically my whole midfield.
    And now I’m stuck on trades..

    Cash- 238k

    Def- Lloyd, crisp, Sicily, Blakeley, duursma, hore. (naish, logue)
    Mid- Jkelly, taranto, Duncan, crouch, crouch, brayshaw, Amon, Clarke. (baker, bewley)
    Ruc- Grundy, gawn. (fort, cameron)
    Fwd- boak, ziebell, Marshall, lipinski, miers, hanrahan. (balta, young)

    1. Balta + baker to basement. (next week- hore + balta to Stewart and dunkley.
    2. Baker to basement, balta to dunkley
    3. Baker to basement, hore to Stewart. (also leaves money for next week.)

    If I do 1 or 2 I have logue cover for hore.

    Any suggestions or other trades?

    There’s a lot of work to do there, Goatman. Hore has to go for sure because he is probably gone for the year. You could probably stick with the fwds for the moment but the the mids especially need more strength. Hope for some new rookie blood to help you with get some upgrades. Good luck.

      Of course, Hind might lose his spot too. But his scoring has been more consistent, and we can generally expect more points from midfielders.

    July 8, 2019 at 9:52 am

    Current team before trades.

    Lloyd, Crisp, Sicily, Hurn, Houli, Logue (Burgess, Naish)

    Treloar, Macare, B.Crouch, Neale, Merrett, Cogs, Bray, Hind (Bewley, Baker)

    Grundy, Witts (Fort,Flynn)

    Boak, Kelly, Billings, Danger, Worpel, Heeney (Cameron, Hanrahan)

    Thinking of Bewley to Dunkley and then Baker upto Matt Crouch. But have my eyes on Bont and Oliver also.
    Bray needs to go but need to get rookies off the field first.

      July 11, 2019 at 11:53 am

      Oliver over Crouch if you have the cash. Personally would go Bont over Crouch as well in his current form.

    July 8, 2019 at 10:52 am

    DEF : Lloyd, Laird, Crisp, Stewart, Sicily, Logue (Naish, Stein)

    MID : J.Kelly, Macrae, B.Crouch, Yeo, Oliver, Neale, Sloane, Hannebery (Bewley, K.Dunkley)

    RUC : Grundy, Gawn (Fort, Flynn)

    FWD : J.Dunkley, Dangerfield, Boak, T.Kelly, Walters, R.Gray (R.Young, Gardner)

    98k in bank

    My current thoughts are Hannebery and Naish to 170k MID rookie and Hurn. Any better thoughts?

    MID – Gaff, Treloar, Rocky, B Crouch, Walsh, Macrae, Sheed, Conig (Answerth, D Clarke)

    RUC – Grundy, Gawn

    FWD – Danger, MArtin, Ziebell, TKelly, Dunks, Boak ( Rose, Colman-jones)

    I have 312K left desperate to fix the back line.
    was thinking Logue to SicDawg and downgrade a rookie and get whitfield next week and trade sheed.

    I’m thinking of going, Logue to Sicily and Baker to Kyle Dunkley, leaves $21k for next week thoughts on trades? Even if Kelly doesn’t play this week, I think I’d rather field Dylan Clarke for a week and trade Kelly next week then be stuck with Logue on field again.

    Currently ranked 511 and want to get in some unique options to try move up further. Currently looking at:

    Daniel > Zak Jones
    Brayshaw > Cripps

    Banking on Jones remaining in the midfield and Cripps coming back healthy. Doubt anyone near the top would have Cripps.
