    My plan was to get Treloar for R8 but just notice he has the Eagles up in perth. The eagles tag so now I am not so sure about bringing in Treloar might be Treloar’s worst round this weekend. Who do I target if not Treloar in the midfield?

      July 20, 2020 at 11:52 pm

      I would get Treloar or Adams. I’m not aware of the Eagles tagging?

    Really hoping Brander returns this week as it would help move on Starcevich. Plan to then get English and Rankine for Buddarick and Pittonet. May even cop a donut as moving on Bud, Stacr and Pittonet would be massive long-term and could deal with brander the following week (though this is early thinking and obviously could change)

      July 20, 2020 at 11:53 pm

      Starc and Pitt. Try get Rankine at F6 or Frederick at F8 for Starc and try get up to Gawn, English, Goldy or Grundy

        Hi Alex

        I know nothing about Federick but I was looking at his score last night. Is he good enough to bring in?

          July 21, 2020 at 9:59 pm

          Yeah, he was really clean and looked really good. I imagine he will get a few more games. Wouldn’t start on the field

      July 21, 2020 at 12:24 am

      Starcevic’s BE is huge, and Pitt is up against Goldy this week.

      I’m getting rid of those two plus Wingard to get Gawn, Frederick and probably another rook defender

    July 20, 2020 at 11:29 pm

    Starc BE is now way to high of 52 at this point he is just going to blow all that cash we just made from him and Pittonet would be the 2nd if u can get Gawn in do it now and Gawn will have a field day against Brisbane cause Martin is useless in the ruck.

    English on current form. He plays more like Gawn/Grundy — as an extra midfielder around the ground. While Goldstein has been playing well, so far he has relied on having a high TOG than any other ruck to keep his scores comparable. If he dips in form (with his team), he’ll probably average 70-80 from here on in.

      July 21, 2020 at 12:33 am

      Fair enough, English will save me cash for next week as well. Could someone like ROB be a decent option? Scores well around the ground regardless of how well his team plays and the hub he is in now has some favourable match ups…

    Mid: Macrae / Mitchell / Simpkin / Cripps / Whitfield / Cogs / Selwood / S Simpson / Bench : Anderson & McInerney
    Ruck: Brundy / Mr Worldwide / Bench – Xerri
    Fwd: Petracca / Brayshaw / Greenwood / B Smith / Parfitt ./ Taylor / Bench – Budarock & M King

    Would like to get in Rankine for Budarick but should also be focusing on trading Starcevich, Worldwide and potentially Selwood.

      July 21, 2020 at 2:46 am

      Firstly you gotta sort out your defence rookies… can’t be copping a 0 again. I would go brander down to McPherson, Starcevich to another defence rookie. That should pocket you enough cash to go Pittonet up to Gawn. If there aren’t any cheap defence rookies available you can go starcevich to will day (316k) which will leave you with about 830k for a solid ruckman.

        July 21, 2020 at 10:28 am

        Yep, if Brander isn’t in then he needs to go. Too much cash to leave on the bench.

        Rivers > $170k
        Brander > $170k

        Leaves you $954k to replace Pittonet

    After 3 weeks from hell in which my rank plummeted from 2,500 to 10,200, it’s out with McAsey (the doughnut you have when you don’t have a doughnut), Budarick and Starcevich (all 3 were on the field in round 7 – no choice). In with Mills & Rankin (at last), as well as Derek Smith. With only $14k in the bank, what am I going to do next week with Pittonet?

      If you still have bewely you can downgrade him and someone else to get enough cash to get to a decent ruck

  16. Avatar


    July 21, 2020 at 9:18 am

    Currently with $31k Cash:
    DEF: Lloyd, Docherty, Houston, Sicily, B.Smith, Ash (Rivers, Butler)
    MID: Steele, Adams, Viney, Whitfield, Mitchell, Coniglio, Pickett, Simpson (Budarick, H.Jones)
    RUC: English, Pittonet (Xerri)
    FWD: Petracca, Greenwood, Simpkin, Parfitt, Tucker, B.Smith (Taylor, King)
    UTL: T.Brown

    Thinking of going:

    Taylor > Rankine
    Budarick > $170k
    Pittonet > ROB

    Cannot get to Grundy/Gawn without downgrading an on field player, plus did a little digging into rucks vs Essendon and the lowest score was a 62 by MWW. Next lowest score is a 93 by Callum Sinclair, so happy with ROB.

    Any other ideas here???

      July 21, 2020 at 12:09 pm

      Solid side mate. Agree Pitt needs to go up to someone and Rankine is a must in.
      If ROB is the best you can get to then great trades.

    • Belly


      July 22, 2020 at 12:20 am

      Can you do it with anyone other than Taylor? If he keeps going near 70 he’s got plenty of cash to make, especially once the 10 drops out of his 3 game average.
      Is that Darcy Tucker at F5? If so get shot of him to Rankine and get a G in the Ruc

    July 21, 2020 at 10:30 am

    Option 1:
    King > Rankine
    Starcevich > Day
    Pittonet > English

    Would then plan to upgrade Day to a premium defender in a couple of weeks once he has made more cash

    Option 2:
    King > Rankine
    Mcinerny > Cheap playing rookie on bench
    Pittonet > English

    This would mean I would have to field Starcevich for a week and then would be able to upgrade to a premium next week.

    I could either go Pitt to Gawn (via 2 downgrades)
    N.Anderson to Trelor (via 2 downgrades)

    Makes sense to get rid of Pitt but Trelors form is madness

    Option 2: Maynard to Day, Budarick to Rankine, Pittonet to Grundy.

    Currently got Goldstein as other ruck, option 2 leaves me to have King on the field.

    Do I stay with King or Pittonet?

    Not going to generate cash for you but I like Starc to Derek Egg Smith. Should give you more points on ground each week. Looks to have really benefited from Houli being out.
    Could look at Green to Simpson as well to give you a rookie that will still make good cash. With Cats injuries he should get plenty of games.

      Thoughts on Wingard?? Averages 91 in 3 wins, but 57 in 4 losses, and needed 2 goals just to get to 55..

      Thinking I could punt on Pitt to Ladhams (almost at the f*** it stage) giving me $$ to get Wingard up to a 770k player (Danger, Billings, Lloyd, Pendles, JELLY? or Higgins +126k)

      1. Pitt to English & Starc to rookie DEF
      2. Pitt to Ladhams & Wingard to Lloyd (via DPP) – benching Hamill
      3. Pitt to Ladhams & Wingard to Jelly – benching Serong

      • Avatar


        July 21, 2020 at 7:26 pm

        Ladhams probably wont play too many games, unless Port decide to go with 2 rucks or drop Westhoff or Marshall. You could be looking at trading him in a rd or 2, but he could stay as second ruck/fwd. Its a gamble, but I would lean toward someone who is first ruck.

    July 22, 2020 at 12:50 pm

    I have 41K in the bank and I’m thinking of dropping Parfitt, Pickett and Rivers to bring in Treloar, Rankin and a rook. Put the rook on the bench (either Mid or Fwd) and move Simpkin from my Fwd line to my Mid, with Rankin taking his place.

    My ruck is Gawn/Grundy, so I’m happy there. However, Parfitt is fading away and I find Pickett to be inconsistent. I know he is getting games whilst Richmond have injury issues but this gets me to Treloar who is in good touch. Other option is keep Pickett and move on a Tyler Brown and go Greenwood. However, Treloar will only increase in price the longer I wait.

    I’m pulling the trigger on Wingard to Rankine as I’m thinking the same.. Wingard hasn’t topped 65 in his last 3 which is the lower of Rankine’s first 2 games..

    That allows me to bring in Will Day over Ben McKay with some spare cash left over for next week.

    I then plan to get rid of budarick, starcevich and brander who is on my bench: for
    Rankine, Shephard/Short and a cheap rookie for my bench next week.
    Can someone please help me??
