Whitfield trade, Dons/Dees scores, CBA takeaways – Ep. 353


Unprecedented. We’ve heard that word thrown around, but this is the world we live in while COVID-19 is floating around. This season threw another curveball with the Essendon v Melbourne game being postponed and subsequently, average scores awarded for those players. The Traders discuss the fallout from that and what round five will look like.

    Love the hub, spend some quality time doing research there also.
    Thoughts on Tom Mitchell’s tackle numbers?
    They’ve said he has a sore shoulder but it won’t stop him playing but he’s laid 7 tackles in 3 games.
    He normally would have laid 20 in 3 games.
    He’s bleeding cash even at his cheaper price.

      Simpkin. If the defence is in quarantine for the bombers, most likely Mcgrath will have to go back

      I think Simpkin being a FWD option (even if you pick him in guts this week). I love McGrath though. Gun.

      Tell me about it. Last week I traded Zorko, now this week it will be Dunkley. Who knows about whitfield. half of these mid pricers are falling over (houston? brayshaw?).

      At least they’re worth decent coin when you trade. Hopefully it becomes a good thing out of a bad situation. You can spread cash a bit when doing these moves… that’s how I’d be playing it (ie. Whitfield this week).
