    Going to hold Max in order to trade Greene and Rocky. High risk

      Max was on plane to Tasmania, highly likely to play.

    Hey lads. Looking for some thoughts-which is the best mid/fwd combo here this weekend?

    1) Macrae/Lycett
    2) Macrae/Ziebell
    3) Fyfe or Bont or Oliver/Dusty
    4) Jelly/E.Curnow.

      Depends, is that jake kelly from Adelaide or josh kelly from GWS. If jake, option 1, if josh, then option 3. Hope this helps

      August 23, 2019 at 5:24 pm

      Beno – id say rocky goes first, solely on reason that cripps has scored heavier more recently.

    Best forward option in GF: Chad Wingard, Jeremy Cameron or Lance Franklin?

    • Avatar


      August 23, 2019 at 6:36 pm

      I think Franklin is out for me. I’m leaning Wingard over Cameron. I would expect him to keep playing in the middle in a must win game that could get them in the 8. Unlikely they make it, but they won’t know until Sunday’s games, so they can’t not go all out and give it a shot

    Who to field in the forward line? Lycett (vs Freo’s scott jones) or Shane Edwards (apparently on the ball)

    August 23, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    Lyons, Pendlebury or Taranto

    Taranto for me

    August 23, 2019 at 7:20 pm

    Wingard or Ziebell as fwd PODs (to partner macrae) – both have “easier” midfielder match ups and could score big??

    August 23, 2019 at 7:27 pm

    which trades to i go lads:
    Option 1:
    Greene and Salem > Whit and Ziebell
    Option 2:
    Gawn Greene > Ziebell and Kelly
    Option 3:
    Gawn Greene > Ziebell and Whit
    Im open to other ideas

    King David. – Can Someone look at the Leader Hirdys Heros team and work out how he moved Marshall from a forward to a ruck, got rid of Gawn. Traded Greene for Worpel and also got Josh Kelly in his team. Thanks.

    So, assuming this is a serious question, from someone who hasn’t mastered ‘advanced’ trades (involving dual position players) –

    Trade out Greene from fwd line and
    Trade in Worpel to fwd line.

    Trade out Gawn from rucks and
    Move Marshall from fwd line to rucks.

    Move a player with mid/fwd dual position status (dpp) from the midfield to fwd line (spot vacated by Marshall) and
    Trade in Josh Kelly to midfield.

    And there it is. DPP is so handy, and becomes more and more so as the season progresses I reckon!

    Handy hint for beginners – it can be easier to wrap your head around this stuff if you’re looking at a decent sized field view (eg the website) rather than on an app list :)

    You want to hear a funny story? I traded Worpel to Gawn before Worpel went on that 5-6 game tear, then this week I traded Gawn back to Worpel and that most likely single handedly has cost me my spot in the top 100. Combine that with Greene to Billings… Gotta love fantasy

    Beat Destroy by 62 to wrap up the league where I flogged all the DT Talk boys as per usual because for all they romance, they know sweet all. Warnie especially. Won the league 3 games (76 pts) clear of Roy (64 pts) the next best.

    I actually wouldn’t be happy with that overall gF score. I’m on 2510 with boak and Fyfe to play. I would be giving you a rectal examination with my foot if I was playing you.

    Didn’t play the GF this year but stayed in it to improve my ranking – I actually went backwards!
    Gotta laugh. Dusty, Brouch and (Bloody) Billings produced memorable GF spud scores.
    My Never Again List continues to solidify and expand. More power to it.
    Stay well everyone and let’s do this again soon!

    Fair to say that Gawn to Goldy trade this week was my worst of the year. Still went up in the ranking to finish about 7K. Richmond looking real good but might not have all their own way at the Gabba.

    Mad Monday it is for me.
    Not only no GFs, but slipped in rankings out to 4033rd. Terrible way to go out. But still my best season in about 8 years…

    Bring on pre-season.

    Locks for next year atm:
    DEF: Whitfield, Lloyd, Newman? monitoring: Docherty, Z Williams, Laird/B Smith (depending on list changes at Adelaide)
    Mid: TITCHELL! Macrae, Dunkley, Brisbane raffle of McLuggage, Berry, Neale, Lyons; New Saints mids (if any); Worpel, then whatever else happens will be interesting with fallen premos/injury price reductions…
    Ruck: Grundy is the only lock atm. ROB, Gawn, Witts, and Marshall all duking it out for R2
    FWD: Greene (when fit), …jeez. slim pickings next year with most FWD/Mids likely to lose their DPP status.

    Thanks all. Enjoy the off-season.
