    Fyfe to Cripps, Duursma to Hurn. Still tempted to get Snelling and field Duursma for one more week but I think I have enough cash to get my last upgrades through

      Just be careful cause if Melbourne doesn’t get the ball down in the fwd area as much Hurn may not get enough ball time due to that reason so I just see a 70 to maxium 80

    Currently on (Pretty vanilla):
    Coniglio / Brayshaw –> Cripps / Murphy (+$60k)

    Other potential options would be moving someone from the backline (have Blakely, Sicdawg, and B.Smith) or fixing up a rook (one of Naish, O.Baker, or Burgess)

    Do any of these seem like a higher priority than moving on from Brayshaw? Or am I making the sensible move given his B.E?

    It’s sensible given his BE and given Blakely and Sic Potential. If rookies on field then maybe sort them? Hard to say without knowing full team

      Cheers. No rookies on field so finally able to get rid of him. No doubt he will score well this week but just can’t risk it with the BE I guess.

    Boys, need some opinions..

    easy match up this week, thinking of trading Hately and Baker on the pine to Snelling and that saints debutant, banking $416k for next week.. leaving cogs and Fyfe on field, but will be covered by those bench fellas, or cogs to Whitfield and Baker to Snelling, taking 152k for next week. As I said easy match up this week before finals.

    1) cong and Rozee out for Murphy and e Curnow $0
    2) cong and o baker out for Taranto and Hanrahan (bench) $86k but play Rozee
    3) cong and Rozee out for Greene and either Murphy/ e Curnow $17k

    Well done Calvin. O’Brien was the best scorer and well done on the advice of getting Merrett into peoples team. I brought Merrett and Green in for Fyfe and Ebert. I nearly brought in Merrett and Murphy but I think with Kelly and Cogs missing from the GWS midfield Green may get more midfield time and hopefully goes big

    Ow and last night was probably the best start to a Round I’ve ever had with B Smith, B Crouch and Merrett with a combined score of 389

      A high scoring Friday night sets us up nicely in good spirits for the fantasy weekend doesn’t it?

    Cripps. Pfft. What a plonker.

      Nope. He copped a lot of attention and even had frees awarded against him when opponents were shepherding him off the ball at ruck contests. I know I had the C on him.

    GWS v Pies, what a fantasy relevant fixture!

    July 20, 2019 at 7:18 pm

    Ouch. My team is averaging 120, but I put the C on Cripps instead of Grundy

    That hurts

    Hayden McLean turned out to be a good pick. I brought him in because I knew he would go into the ruck.

    Bewley scores more than Cripps (C) and Hartlett, no cover for Birchall. Ouch!
