Witts, Young (and Dow) replacements, Tex into the Rollin’ 22 – Ep. 420

We offer up our apology to Tex Walker but we’re still waiting for ours from Paddy Dow. There’s plenty of issues to get through this week including the cash cows. Let’s go!

    Hey Warnie

    With such a tough start to the season with long term injuries Rowell Witts Budarick……. I’m suggesting CD look at introducing an extra trade for sides affected by this bad luck
    So far each week sides have had to fix up long term injured players (forced trades) instead of ones they would’ve preferred to make themselves
    Some sides would need at least 3 trades to fix this upcoming rounds mess with the possibility of upcoming Krispy Kreme’s doughnuts with long term injuries then out of form players (looking at Dow/Clark)
    Witts was an astute pick but now people have to use one trade to fix up that injury
    Injury is part of the game but long term injuries are tough to rectify with only 2 trades

    It’s only a thought in this ever evolving game of AFL fantasy
    Thanks for such aa great site to throw around ideas

    Good luck for the rest of the season

  4. Bring Back Half-back

    I noticed guys like Z Williams, Adams, Boak, B Crouch, Viney have been resting up forward

    Boak obviously has history and Viney has done well, but Adams and Williams impact nothing when up forward. With both having a history of dominating at half back I hope their resting role changes ASAP

    Is Sean Darcy an option at R2, replacing ROB? Trying to upgrade Young to a premo defender but reluctant to have Flynn at R2?

    (Jones, Bergman) with 312k.

    Who should I trade in/out.
