    Can Dusty be trusted to put on scores like that most weeks? He was fairly ordinary early last year when I had him in my team. Better to save cash and take Caldwell instead?

    Which option?
    1.) Markov and Macrae (plus $168k)
    2.) Zac Williams and any mid under $824k.

    Planning on keeping faith with Gawn and other premiums who misfired and fix up rookies I missed and 50/50 calls I went back on (taking out Mills for example). Also means holding Clark, does he hold or get dropped given Danger’s likely suspension and the Menegola injury?

    I just keep shaking my head in amazement at all these proposed trades. They are wonderful but all assume you are not going to have any team selection problemand all your rookies that played last week will be playing, and your midpricers as well and there are no lingering injuries from R1 or players who were not available R1 and possible suspensions (there was a nasty sling tackle that will be scrutinized and all this spread over a rolling lockout. I think you are all dreaming. The Sunday fixtures are all challenging. Just my view.

          Waaaaaay to much to have sitting on your bench for 2-3 weeks particularly this early in the season.

          Imo unless a huge amount of rookies get dumped or there is injury carnage during the week on top of rowell he is a must trade

            If I hold his ownership will fall significantly and trades are going to extremely valuable this year. I just think if the player is not a long term injury or losing money he is a hold. Especially if he is in the best 22. If you go into the bye rounds with only 25 playing players in your side you are catching a council bus or walking not driving a hilux.

              There are 22 rounds not 17 this year and 15 odd less trades and byes to deal with and all rolled into a rolling lockout sushi roll.Rowell is a forced trade. Danger is a tactical hold. If you ever played RDT you would understand the value of trades.

                Facepalm, you’ve completely missed the point of the game, it’s to finish with the most points. You don’t hold a premo player on your bench for 3 weeks, 1 week maybe.
                If your not in the top few thousand(probably higher) after the first 5 rounds you are no hope of winning.

    Sitting at 4000 exactly atm with 1924 this week. Took a punt and had Hunter in R2 instead of Flynn, did the same with a few rookie positions on field where i went against the grain and left the better choices to hit their big scores on the bench, silly mistakes but hoping those fixes within my team buy me a few more points in weeks to come.

    I have a bit of cash handy so looking at Rowell to Dusty or Laird, thoughts?

    Which option:

    This would leave me with no premo fwd.
    2) Danger to Dunks & Rowell to Heppell/Sloane.

With Rowell, I am thinking of going down to Caldwell and then chucking him Fwd. Will weaken my mids for the next week or two, but bank me close to 400k. Solid or??

    March 23, 2021 at 11:09 am

    I can bring in any mid, and current M1 is Bont.

    Realistically it is out of Macrae and Titch. Is there any merit to going Titch over Macrae?

    – No uncertainty on Titch’s role week to week (surely Treloar picks up some CBA’s in the not too distant future, that has to effect Macrae??)
    – 106 first week in off no pre season, bodes well for the season
    – 50k cheaper
    – I also already have Dunkley, Bont and Daniel. Surely they can’t keep all scoring big like last week?

    Gawn, Grundy with Flynn and Meek.
    Martin, Phillips, Caldwell, Dow, Campbell, Rowe with Jones and Scott

    Thinking of going Rowell to Stephenson.
    Do you think trade a ruck or maybe Lloyd or just shuffle a rookie. Was thinking Green to Drew?

    Which 2 go first:
    – tom Atkins (51), played down back and had 19 touches looked promising, and gave away 5 free kicks
    – will brodie (50) 9/24 CBA, looked a bit lost, low tog and didn’t tackle or mark, however no matt rowell might increase tog and CBA’s.
    – Jordan Clark (54), took 4 kick-in’s, looked okay, only 1 mark but with danger and menegola out for a while if duncan comes back in you would assume that he would go inside and hence clark would stay on the wing
    – Tom Green (49), 10/27 CBA, looked great in the first half and shocking in the second half, but there was hard conditions for fantasy and the GWS lost, against freo in the sun this week could bounce back.

    • Avatar


      March 23, 2021 at 3:15 pm

      I’m leaning towards T Green, personally. Reasoning:

      – Looked good, and he wont give 5 free kicks away every week, meaning he should be okay to average at least 65, which is good enough to be a stepping stone given his current price.
      – Playing the very fantasy friendly half back role, I think his scores will actually increase and could average 75-80

      – Probably my 2nd choice to be traded out.
      – Looked a little slow and lost, as you say.
      – HOWEVER, he is a very one dimensional player, loves it contested, with tackles and stoppages (I think he had the most centre clearances for GC). But look at the stats for the game, it was VERY uncontested. Only 2 players had more than 3 tackles (and one was Witts!). Lots of uncontested marks and chipping the ball around. This game style is not suited to Will Brodie and I see this as a big reason to why he struggled. In saying that, across the board games are becoming more uncontested with the new rule, so it may be the norm, however this game was extreme, I think he will improve.
      – I would have expected him to be dropped this week, but with Rowell out, he should be safe and even potentially increase TOG and CBA’s.

      – Didn’t actually play a terrible game. He just lacked his marks (and a few extra possessions) as a result of Adelaide’s high pressure game, which resulted in a scrappy affair.
      – No Menegola and Danger means his role is safe, and I would expect him to improve over the next few.

      – As you say, hard conditions for fantasy, however, not for Tom Green.
      – This kid is a beast, and thrives on contested footy. Loves it in tight, tackling and winning contested footy (is pretty much P Cripps 2.0). So, with that in mind, the weather should have actually suited him. Should have had plenty of opportunity to win contested ball and tackle for days, but neither were forthcoming.
      – This leaves me nervous as to what he will produce in dry weather, fast paced games.

      Just my opinions, and some food for thought.

    It feels Italy early to be playing the BE game… and with two sideways trades. Don’t have Danger or Rowell to worry about, so
    Zac Bailey > Stephenson
    Tom Green > Sholl
    Makes a little cash too.

    Who should I trade out? (First trade is Danger out)

    Dom Tyson 58, 57BE – Got midfield minutes but didn’t look great. First game in two years and it looked like it, was a bit slow and turned it over a few times. Concerning as they have Dumont, Anderson, Cunnington to return soon.

    Ned Cahill 34, 22BE – Thought his job security was decent and would be given a more Fantasy friendly role but just doesn’t look like he’s ready to have an impact at this level. Obviously if he gets dropped makes the decision easy.

    Jimmy Webster 48, 41BE – 10 points in 2 and a half quarters doesn’t fill me with a lot of confidence. Definitely not the worst result but this pick could be a dead end already.

      Well as the article points out, clubs do tend to give debutants more than one game at the level (e.g. guys like Bruhn, Bergman) and realistically maybe only Bergman is a popular rookie who might get dropped given a few injured guys don’t seem ready yet.

    Ruck: Gawn, Flynn (Meek)
    Fwd. Danger, Phillips, Butters, Caldwell, Campbell, Warner (Brockman, Jones)
    Util: Bergman

    1987 round 1, 123k in bank

    So, I avoided the Rowell issue but Danger will have to go. Considering going Danger to Mitchell as it looks like Titch is as cheap as he’s going to get. A reiable 110+ every week from Titch would be nice.

    Not getting Stephenson. Anderson, Dumont and Cunners all coming back in the next couple weeks will surely affect Stephs scores. I’m thinking Sholl in as well.

      Personally have Stephenson and Sholl (started both). Agree with the returning mids taking some of Stephenson’s mid time but he was clearly their best player on the weekend and surely they don’t watch him do what he did in the midfield and then park him forward after that. Obviously won’t do 128 every week but 80+ isn’t unreasonable at his price, plus was like second for the week for handball receives so they want him getting the ball. Just my thoughts (as an owner haha).

        March 23, 2021 at 9:30 pm

        I’m also a little concerned about the mid time of stephenson once the other three return. However he did only attend 10/30 centre bounces. Only 6 players had more handball receives round 1 than stephenson so it looks like they do want the ball in his hands.

          Haha nearly (1988), Sholl came in literally 10 minutes before the Crows v Cats game, had been big on Stephenson all preseason. An yeah didn’t start either Danger (Dunkley instead) or Rowell (thought he’d be a slow starter) which is probably why I did well to be honest.

    Def: Laird, Stewart, Docherty, J Clark, Young, Idun (Highmore, Koschitzke)
    Mids: Merrett, Oliver, Taranto, Rowell, T Green, Powell, Gulden, Jordon (Brockman, Sharp)
    Rucks: Gawn, Witts (Flynn)
    Forwards: Dunkley, Phillips, Caldwell, Hind, Campbell, Warner (Rowe, Jones)
    Utl: Meek
    Cash: 32k

    Obviously Rowell has to go, hate doing it because the kid is going to be an absolutely gun. I have been tossing with the idea of getting rid of Gawn as well, and bringing in Macrae and Drapper. My concern with that is that at some point of the year, Gawn and/or Grundy are going to be must haves in the ruck, and bringing them in later on is going to cost a bit of coin and a number of trades.

    Outside of those trades, I am not sure what to do, or who to target this week. Any advice would be great.

    Dangerfield to Stephenson and Clark to Mills
    Dangerfield to Stephenson and Clark to Williams, giving me 160k to potentially upgrade Dow next week. Thoughts?

      I’d hold Clark for now, personally. Although Williams > Mills for the price imo

        Yeah good call, I managed to go Dangerfield to Stephenson and then Dow to Williams via fantasia dpp, so kept Clark over Dow seeing as Dangerfield and Duncan out again, hoping he can score a bit better this week.

    Dangerfield to Stephenson or to Williams (from fantasia). Sounds simple, but who is more underpriced, who is safer. Stephenson banks significantly more cash for next week’s upgrade which could be the difference to getting up to someone like Macrae…

      Stephenson safer but Williams could give you an edge. I think I’d go Stephenson personally.

    Danger out $776 + $273 in the bank = 1.04M

    Option 1: Trade Meek $172, swap a few DDP’s around and bring in C Guthrie and Markov

    Option2: Trade Gawn, put Flynn at R2 and bring in any 2 of the following: Sidebottom, Macrae, Oliver, Mitchell (any 2 from any position $800+)

    Option 3: Trade Gawn to Draper, bring in any of the above and upgrade 2 players next week with the $700k leftover..
