    Hey Legends, any advice on the team, I have already traded JDG out for Hind?

    DEF: Laird, Daniel, Short, Clark, Fantasia, Young (Highmore, Koschitzke)

    MID: Macrae, Zerrett, Titch, Taranto, Dow, Gulden, Powell, Jordan (Brockman, Scott)

    RUCK: Gawn, Flynn (Hunter, Meek)

    FWD: Dunkley, Philips, Stephenson, Hind, Warner, Bergman (Rowe, Jones)

    Bank: 250k

    I am thinking of trading out Stephenson to a good premium (781k) but not quite sure who and then trading in Campbell for Dow next week.

    Thoughts?

    Thinking (starting bank 38K):
    Out: Caldwell and Idun
    In: Fantasia and Lazzaro + 103k

    I have just about all the right rookies, and can’t see any reasonable mid price midfielder or forward that I would be able go to from Caldwell, I also don’t really have any other pressing issues, but want cash generation and Idun not playing doesn’t help that.

    Hey Legends, any advice on the team, Caldwell has to go.
    D: Laird, Stewart, Docherty, J Clark, Young, Highmore (Idun, Koschitzke)
    M: Merrett, Oliver, Dusty, Taranto, Berry (Adl), Powell (Nth), Gulden, Jordon (Brockman, Sharp)
    R: Gawn, Witts (Flynn)
    F: Dunkley, Phillips, Caldwell, Hind, Campbell, Warner (Rowe, Jones)
    U: Meek
    Bank: 38k
    I am thinking that Butters or Smith (Geel) are worth a look at in the forward line, but not sure who to consider if it’s a mid that comes in for Caldwell.
    The second trade is something that I have no idea about who to trade, but think that Lazzaro could be worth getting in for a non playing player for cash generation.

    Anyone got any ideas? Looks like I am fortunate and have x2 luxury trades. Have all the rookies, no injuries and no tanking premiums. Thinking perhaps get rid of McEvoy, not really keen on trading any premiums. Cheers

    D; Laird Stewart McEvoy Clark Markov Young (Highmore Koschitzke)
    M; Merrett Macrae Mitchell JKelly Taranto Gulden Jordan Powell (Scott Brockman)
    R; Gawn Flynn (Hunter Meek(U))
    F; Dunkley Phillips Hind Fantasia Warner Campbell

    +45k

      Great looking team, definitely McEvoy on the block, any way you can get about $75k from the other trade so you can get Butters via moving Fantasia?
      Don’t have Rowe or Dow on your red bench do you?

    1) Caldwell to Campbell and Clark to Dunkley
    2) Sharp to Campbell and Caldwell to N.Anderson

    Undecided between getting a rookie who isn’t playing off the field for cash generation or just leaving Sharp on the bench to get a set and forget
