    My team:

    DEF: Haynes, Doch, Houston, Crisp, Day, Watson (Rivers, Ling)
    MID: Neale, Macrae, Titch, Viney, Higgins, Zorko, Swallow, Pickett (Brown, Close)
    RUCK: Grundy, Pitt (Williams)
    FWD: Whitfield, Petracca, Parfitt, Simpkin, Smith, Rankine (King, Budarick, Cavarra)

    Only 21k, wanting to offload budarick to woodcock and keen to see the end of parfitt

    Budarick to Woodcock
    Parfitt to Martin
    Rivers to Draper (move Williams to Def)
    leaves you around $200k next week to try and get Pitt up to a decent R2.

    DEF: Lloyd, Doc, Houston, Lukosius, Day, McPherson (Ash, Ling)
    MID: Neale, Macrae, Gaff, Cogs, Viney, Titch, Simpson, Vandermeer (Pickett, Brown, Porter)
    RUCK: Gawn, Grundy (Cameron)
    FWD: Whitfield, Petracca, Simpkin, Bailey Smith, Taylor Rankine (King, Cavarra)

    With some DPP shuffling I’ve gone:
    Taylor to Watson
    Cameron to Draper
    Vandermeer to Dusty

    I’m trying to get rooks off the field and think that Dusty is just about to get going and is cheap at less than 650K. I have 113K in the bank and have Brown and King on my radar for moving on next week. My problem is the lack of cheap rooks that I can bring in to generate cash. I held Pickett after planning to move him on for a couple of weeks for bench (given he is up and down) but I worry about ending up with a bench filled with one hit wonders like Cavarra! RC-D from Richmond (named as an emergency) is on my radar. What rooks do you think will come in and not only perform but stick around for more than a week?

      There are not many quality rookies to choose from, unfortunately. I took Serong early, and he has come good, but most have been disappointing.
      It might be better to stick with the one who are sure to get game time. Of the newer ones, James Bell and Bradley Close seem promising, at least as money-earners.

    Thoughts on Ben Mckay? Did he have a role change or something last week?

      Not sure where to look at trades this week – I have already done 1 to get rid of a non-playing rookie to someone from last nights game

      Currently my team looks like:
      Def: Docherty, Houston, Crisp, Weller, Sicily, Eggmolesse-Smith (McPherson, Goddard)
      Mid: Neale, Mitchell, Macrae, Coniglio, B Smith, Simpson, Serong, Pickett (Hibberd, Close)
      Ruck: Gawn, Grundy (Cameron)
      Fwd: Petracca, D Smith, Whitfield, Greenwood, Aarts, Rankine (M King, Frederick)
      Utl: Woodcock
      Cash: 61k

      Was thinking that I need to upgrade my mids, but not sure who I should be looking at. Potentially Lyons, Oliver or Sidebottom (with the plan of moving him forward later on) but may have to give up too much to get one of them at the moment. Open to suggestions and thought

    Simpson to Duncan
    Pickett to Dusty (3 rookies on ground)
    Simpson to Neale
    T.Brown to 170k (4 rookies on ground, but 170k to spend next week?)

      Assuming option 2 means Pickett is on the field, I’d go with option 1 for sure..

      Dusty is putting together some good games and Duncan is averaging 93.7 (117 BCV) if you take out his injury affected 11..

    Dusty 100%. Is B.Mckay an option anyone?

      August 4, 2020 at 12:39 pm

      For BE purposes definitely. However if going to a 170k Rookie means an upgrade then do that. Don’t get McKay if it’s going to stuff up your upgrade plans

    Hi guys. Sitting Rank 20 at the moment. Don’t ask me how. I don’t have Lloyd or Gawn!

    What to do with Brodie Smith? Seems 50/50 to play and probably can’t risk McPherson on field.

    Simpson to Zac Bailey was the original plan.

    Could go Smith to either Bailey/Stewart/Lloyd instead. But Simpson would have to stay…reckon he maybe omitted given the Cats expected ins.

    What would you do? Love your thoughts

      How’d you go? Smith AND McPherson out in the end..

    Anyone been trading out weller, parfitt or simpkin?

    I’ve gone bennell-> close and xerri -> draper and leaning towards sideways trading one of these guys as my 3rd. Got only 91k in the bank

    Why haven’t the teams for the North v Geelong game dropped? It’s already less than 24 before the game, and I hate leaving trades too close to the game.

    he broke in the last qtr, Jay, I had the VC on him and was looking good for a score over 105 then just stopped.
    Know tossing up Gawn or Grundy for the C

      It’s like two rounds in a row — brought in Gaff last round for that turd score too. But I think Warnie officially broke him last round

      I’m putting the C on Grundy myself, out of those two rucks now.

    damn it, i wanna take Aarts’ emergency score but i have to put either budarick or darcy cameron on field and hope they are dropped. are either of them a chance to lose their spot?

    • Avatar


      August 5, 2020 at 5:15 pm

      Cameron might be more likely to lose his spot out of those two, but collectively both are likely to play. Guess you’ll find out when teams drop tonight.

    Has anyone noticed if you put the C on a bye player you get double his average.You also get double vc score because your captain didn’t play.This is in fantasy.

    I dodged another bullet with Treloar. Took Whitfield instead. I probably would have brought in Treloar next round.
