    I have Grundy as R1, can’t afford Gawn just yet. Who is the choice out of ROB and Marshall (source says he is back this week) for R2

    Please help: Have Witts and Young with 11k

    theses are my choices 1) Flynn R2 Downgrade Witts to Rookie Upgrade Young to Ridley

    2) Witts to Hickey Young to Cummings

      Tough- you have Witts R1 and Flynn R2. I don’t think you can go a rookie with Witts. Always easier to upgrade a defender later. Do you have a rookie at D7 who plays early in the round and therefore could loop. Then sell a spud somewhere else to get Grundy. Otherwise option 2 is best with a view to getting Grundy after the West Coast game in a few weeks and before he plays Gold Coast.

    What’s the likelihood of Brockman being dropped? Seems dicey to offload a ‘playing’ rookie when there are non-playing ones sitting on the pine not making any points or cash. But Brockman’s no longer a great cash cow, and I could use the extra $20k or so I’d get for him.
    Shame the Hawks are not playing til Sunday so I’m flying blind …

      He is a definite chance to be dropped and either way he needs to go as he will never be on your ground and he will rarely score enough for cash. Sell if you have the luxury. Same is true for Kozzie.

      In that case with Gawn R1, you could play Flynn on ground and switch Meek and Witts around so Witts is UTI. Now you can punt Witts to a rookie like Burgess (as cover for Gould, Highmore) and upgrade Young to a premium. Also, it allows you to move Burgess to DEF in case Kozzie is dropped. The other option is to chase cash with a Def who has a low break even and try and increase cash generation with both trades. I think your options are either Burgess or Chapman or both if you go double downgrade or one of those guys with a premium like Ridley or Mills.

    Should I move Witts to Utl for this week and get Grundy next week? Thinking Caldwell to Warner and Cogs to someone similar pricing. Not happy with number of non-playing or scoring Rookies. Robertson may be dropped for J Berry too.

    Hey everyone! Was wondering if you guys can form some suggestions.
    So with the fact my trades that I did last round and my original trade thoughts cost me 130 points and a place in the top 700 people was wondering if you guys could help me.
    So I have the Young and Witts forced trades, already made up my mind I will be going to Grundy, but was wondering who I would get for the other trade in, it is out of Waterman, Downie, Fullerton, Shipley or Parks. Unfortunately miss out with cash ok Burgess and Robertson.
    The other problem I have is that, this will make me have 7 rookies on field, hopefully that is not too much. Cheers Legends 😊

    I have traded Perryman (INJ) down to Warner as he was the only rooky i didn’t have that I needed to get.
    i now have 474k in the bank. who do I trade out Clark (DEF), Drew (MID), Stephenson (FWD)? and who would you bring in?
    or do i look at double down and gain some more cash by trading out a bench warmer who hasn’t played?
    PS rolling lockouts suck

      I’d prefer Stephenson -> Walker than Campbell -> Walker. DEF line is weak, I’d rather upgrade Young to maybe Cumming or Jiath than downgrade him to Parks, especially if Parks is going to be on-field.

    So if Highmore is named, I’ll end up trading Young to an M5. If Highmore isn’t named, I’ll take Young to a D5/D6. Firstly, what are the chances of Highmore being named? Because my ideal M5 would be Drew, who plays before St Kilda teams are out. Any other MIDs under $487k worth considering for an on-field spot? I can also flick an on-field FWD to MID and take Young to a FWD under $478k…maybe Frederick? If Highmore isn’t named, I’ll probably just take Young to Jiath.

    TL;DR – Drew + $51k, Frederick + $135k or Jiath + $43k?

    havent posted my team so far but thought it might be worth doing so since im in the same position as most with witts and Young both out injured

    also currently ranked just outside top 1k
    currently as it stands

    DEF: Stewart, Daniel, Short, Markov, Clark, Young ( Kozzie, Highmore)

    MID: Merrett, Macrae, Taranto, Wines, Gulden, Jordan, Campbell, Powell, ( Robertson, Scott)

    RUCK: Flynn, Witts, (Hunter)

    FWD: Dusty, Dunkley, Phillips, Hind, Fantasia, Warner (Bergman, Rowe)

    UTL: Harry Jones

    245k left in the bank

    currently im thinking trade Witts to Hickey – i cant upgrade young and also get witts to grundy…

    but if i grab hickey, i can buy anyone for just over 800k, currently thinking grabbing Tex walker and having some spending cash next week. Thoughts?

      Highmore won’t play (played in B team for St Kilda’s scratch 17v17 match in training) and Koschitzke isn’t good enough for D6. I personally think Burgess as a D6 is a cool and cheap option because he’ll be taking over rucking duties but Chapman is probably safer. Cox offers something unique with DPP, especially if you have Fantasia forward.

      I like 1 more to be honest. Represents less risk because of Robertson’s low JS. And you can ride the BE with Walker and upgrade him to a premium when he fattens anyway, plus he should still get a few more tons especially with matchups like North Melbourne this week.

    94k. Have the Young/Witts issue. First thought was to trade Witts to Grundy and Young to Burgess and ride Burgess for a couple weeks hoping he can average 60. This leaves 18k. I also thought I could trade Witts to Burgess via Hunter Utility and Young up to Cumming (Leaving 412k and Flynn R2) or Young to Ridley (Leaving 157k). Thoughts? cheers.

      I started with him (stupidly) and did a bit of research and press conference watching post rd 1. I’d say he’s a few weeks away from being a trade target. He’s still playing forward, and snagged 3 goals to get his ton on the weekend (in a 100+ point win over the worst team in the comp). Until we see his usual stat lines making up his points, I’d stay away.

      Definitely go to Cumming/Jiath, they’ll rise in price to a Docherty level whilst putting in consistent scores. I do see Docherty as maybe 5th or 6th best DEF in comp.

      You have the same bench options as me. I’m in a similar situation and I want two mid pricers instead of one premium and one rookie, because bench options aren’t great. For Young, I’d be looking at Cumming/Jiath for that price range unless you’re comfortable with another rookie on ground like Chapman or Cox. If you’re fine with Chapman or Cox, you’d probably have enough to take de Goey or Serong to Dunkley. If you’d rather have Cumming/Jiath, I like Serong -> Drew or maybe de Goey -> Walker would give you just enough coin.
      TL;DR – I’d go Young & Serong -> Cumming & Drew or Young & de Goey -> Jiath & Tex…or maybe DPP Serong into the FWD line and trade him for Tex.

      Witts is done for the season and Young will be out for about a month, so that’s who you should trade out.

      In regards to trading in, I’d suggest Witts to Grundy & Young to Burgess.

    Young and Clark to Cumming and Chapman/Burgess – Leaving 120K to go on De Goey next week. Thoughts?

    Gday, I have witts and young. Move Flynn on and downgrade witts to Robertson. Then can get any defender for young. Thoughts on lukosios? Or spend 50-60 extra and grab docherty?

      Do you already have Lloyd, Laird and Ridley. They’re currently the top 3 defenders in my mind at least.

    Ugh, my ranking after the first three rounds is atrocious [26.8k overall rank]. Hopefully I can pick myself up this week with this team.

    TRADES:
    OUT – Jordan Clark, Hayden Young
    IN – Changkuoath Jiath, Deven Robertson

    Remaining Salary: $218k

    TEAM:
    DEF Lloyd (VC), Laird, Docherty, Howe, Markov, Jiath [Highmore, Koschitzke]
    MID Merrett, Oliver, Sloane, Serong, Gulden, Jordon, T.Powell, Robertson [Berry, McNeil]
    RUC Gawn, Flynn [Meek]
    FWD D.Martin, T.Phillips, Stephenson, Campbell, Warner, Rowe [A.Scott, H.Jones]
    UTL [Brockman]

    Should I be looking at a top 1000 par score this week?

      Don’t get Jiath, get a premium if you can afford or don’t trust Robertson on your ground he could be dropped
