Ziebell the Pig, Dunkley, Neale, Dusty injuries, cashing in cows – Ep. 426

PODCAST: There is a lot of chat about Jack Ziebell today. Sorry, not sorry.

Jack Ziebell’s 170 was incredible to watch. As he racked up points at will, he is now the second highest scoring player in the league. Could he be an option for the injured Dunkly, Dusty or Neale? We’ve got a bit to unpack after round six on this episode of the podcast. Let’s go!

      Over 3 months ago before stephenson got 122 in the pre season and ziebell’s role was to not drop the ball in the goalsquare when they kicked it to him 30 times a game?

    Thoughts on Atu? -7 BE and 77 last week.

    Usually love the pods, but WAY too much time talking about Ziebell. What about other legit options for Neale & Dunkley?!

    • Warnie

      April 26, 2021 at 5:42 pm

      I will be making sure that happens on Thursday’s podcast, don’t you worry about that. I was over the Ziebell chat.

    thoughts guys? For Dunk and Rowe

    1. Oliver and downgrade putting Farrar on the ground (350k cash for next week)
    2. Sidey and Fyfe/Brayshaw (one less rook)
    3 Trealoar and Houston (also gets rid of a rook))


    • Warnie

      April 26, 2021 at 5:44 pm

      I don’t mind the first option if you’ve got someone you want to grab next week… ie. have some plans, otherwise, I am a fan of the Sidebottom and Fyfe combo.

  5. Walsh

    April 26, 2021 at 7:10 pm

    Who goes first, Daniel or Gulden?
    And which is a better duo
    Trealor and Sidey
    Macrae and Serong
    Cheers guys

    So what do you guys think about Ziebell…. ;-p

    • Subash

      April 26, 2021 at 8:47 pm

      In my honest opinion, I think he is priced too high now.

      Noble will soon realise that what he’s doing is not preventing from losing.

  7. TIM

    April 26, 2021 at 7:30 pm

    Who do u guys think the top 3 mids are to get

    • Jezza

      April 26, 2021 at 8:23 pm

      Macrae and Merrett if you don’t have them and then either petracca or Oliver both absolute beasts!

    • Dylpat

      April 26, 2021 at 8:41 pm

      Have Dunks and Martin, should I go Martin to Heppell or hold martin for another week and trade Guldren to Farrar to get some cash

  8. God of DT

    April 26, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Should go Martin to Heppell

  9. Bill

    April 26, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    I wouldn’t be getting rid for Gulden too early. He might just make some more good money yet.

    • Double Parked

      April 26, 2021 at 11:28 pm

      Won’t be making it quickly though. Priced at 70, BE of 77. Better off moving him on

      • Bill

        April 26, 2021 at 11:30 pm

        We’ll see. I think he might have some good scores left in him yet.

  10. Double Parked

    April 26, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    I think so too, but he’s not going to outscore a premium mid. if you can get him up to a keeper this week or missed one of the new cash cos options it’s worth pulling the trigger on him I reckon

    • Bill

      April 26, 2021 at 11:44 pm

      Depends what you can afford. He’s currently holding down a role in my midfield. To upgrade him, and downgrade another rookie who is also in my team to afford it, at the moment would probably work out worse for me.

    Rather than Dunks to Ziebell, should I go Dunks to Trelor gain cash for flynn to Grundy next week?

    • Will

      April 27, 2021 at 10:06 am

      I would 1 million % trust Treloar over Ziebell.

      • Robbo

        April 28, 2021 at 12:38 am

        Thanks for your advise 🤙

  12. DylPat

    April 27, 2021 at 7:14 am

    Would trading Dunks to Farrar then Martin to Oliver be stupid

    Gets me 300k plus for next week to get Grundy or trade a couple of fringe players up to premiums next week?

    • Justin Stitchup

      April 27, 2021 at 8:00 am

      I like it. Dusty has a sore foot too

  13. Christian Petracca

    April 27, 2021 at 3:49 pm

    Petracca over Oliver

  14. Cody O'Brien

    April 27, 2021 at 5:19 pm

    Can go to practically any player in the game to any position via dpp from dunkley. Is zeibell the safe choice here or is there someone else in the def mid or fwd i can still get cash from

  15. Nathan Grant

    April 27, 2021 at 6:34 pm

    Trade Dunkley and Tex for Treloar and Ziebell or Parish and J.Macrae. Or am I better of keeping Tex and trade a rookie for Farrar and have just 1 of the 4.

  16. Bombers

    April 27, 2021 at 6:38 pm

    Hi, I have had many forced trades the last few weeks and am struggling to generate cash on my bench. Am I better off trading Dunkley and Campbell to:
    A. Oliver and Farrar or
    B. Houston and Frederick via dpp, leaving me with 369k to upgrade rowe next week.
