    You’ve missed the instant sugar hit price rise on both, so for mine it becomes a question of JS, and given how long it’s taken RCD to get into the Tiger’s starting 22, and Richmond being where they are compared to the Pies being more likely to ‘play the kids’, I’d be leaning towards Poultry.
    Other than that, I think their output is likely to be comparable imo.

      Don’t hate it as a unique, but if you’ve got a few PODs already, I don’t think it’s worth it.

      Like so many players, its all down to role. Has been for years. Macrae 80s vs 140s – role. Josh Kelly 70s vs 120s – role. Aaron Hall – 30s vs 130s – role.

      Two things, he’s very injury prone and how will Stephenson’s absence affect his game?

    Anyone have any suggestions with what I should do with my team? I have 200k in the bank

    Docherty, Laird, Stewart, Cumming, Bergman, Ziebell (kozi, L.Jones)

    Merrett, macrae, Taranto, Walsh, Warner, Powell, Jordan, RCD (Martyn, F.Macrae)

    Gawn, Grundy (meek)

    Kelly, Stephenson, Phillips, Farrar,
    A. Scott, Hind (H.Jones, Briggs)

    Utl- Paul hunter

    • Ethan F

      May 10, 2021 at 6:21 pm

      I’d want to get Scott off ground. I’d also want to fix up some red dots, because your team is in good shape. I’d want to get Meek or Hunter out, I hated having a RUC in my UTL slot, offered no flexibility at all. So I’d get one of them out then another red dot.

      You could even trade both Meek and Hunter out. Gawn and Grundy have the same bye, so if Stef Martin’s injury is bad, Sweet would give you a ruck in R14. Could use the other trade to get Byrnes and get him on field for Scott (through some DPP work).

    • Nikki

      May 11, 2021 at 2:05 pm

      I would go Stephenson and Hunter to Harmes and Rozzee. Bergman can go FWD for Scott.

  5. Brian Smith

    May 10, 2021 at 4:32 pm

    Farrar to Rozee

  6. cody

    May 10, 2021 at 4:41 pm

    DEF: Laird, Stewart, Scholl, Daniel, Cumming, Burgess(Kosi, Highmore)
    Mid: Zerret, Taranto, Walsh, Treloar, Brayshaw, Powell, Jordon, Byrnes(Marcrae, Mead)
    Ruck:Grundy Lycett
    Fwd: Kelly, Stephenson, Hind, Phillips, Bergman, Farrar (treacy, cahill)
    UT: Jones
    No clue what to do w around 300k in the bank
    Might get to gawn and go macrae to rcd

    • Ethan F

      May 10, 2021 at 6:26 pm

      Lycett will be suspended so Lycett -> Gawn is a lock. That gives you $90k left.

      I think your next priority is getting Burgess off field. You could do Jones -> RCD then swap RCD with Powell, Powell with Bergman and Bergman with Burgess. So essentially you get RCD on field over Burgess (+10-15 points on average plus good cash generation).

      • Cody

        May 10, 2021 at 9:48 pm

        sounds good but the only problem now is that stephensons out for 4-6 weeks so he has to go. Thinking i might go to harmes for a pod

        • Ethan F

          May 11, 2021 at 12:11 am

          Yeah he does have to go. If you do that, then Koschitzke will be on your field over Burgess (which I’d probably prefer anyway).

  7. Brian Smith

    May 10, 2021 at 4:52 pm

    Moving Fanta or Phillips (FWD) on, and so far I only have 13 players for R12 bye. Do I get Billings/Bolton/I.Smith to improve my R12 team, or JKelly and risk a donut in R12?

    • Ethan F

      May 10, 2021 at 6:30 pm

      I don’t think you’d be risking a donut, it’s only R9 so you’ve got plenty of time to fix up your bye structure still. If that’s who you want, go for it. I was going to say I like I.Smith but he has the R12 bye too unfortunately. Also, if you move Fantasia/Phillips out, they both have the R12 bye so you’re not actually increasing the amount of players you have with that bye.

  8. Tony

    May 10, 2021 at 5:24 pm

    Should I keep dusty or get rid of him (break even-126)

    • Ethan F

      May 10, 2021 at 6:37 pm

      Depends on the rest of your team. In my eyes he’s a lower priority than bad rookies on-field or no bench cover. If you’re in a position for luxury trades, he can go.

      • Jim

        May 10, 2021 at 8:49 pm

        That’s what I was thinking, but in terms of the byes the other three have the first bye. All are priced in the $500ks so could be viewed as all mid pricers too. Maybe I’m overthinking it…?

    • Ethan F

      May 11, 2021 at 12:13 am

      Gotta be Phillips, I wouldn’t wanna trade Warner out because of his bye. Especially not for someone with the R12 bye.

    Who to get in
    Parish/ guthrie/ mills/ titch 🤔

    • Jim

      May 10, 2021 at 8:52 pm

      I’m looking at Titch after his bye. The others are all good. Possibly Guthrie then Mills and Parish. Tough call.

    • Ethan F

      May 11, 2021 at 12:14 am

      I like Mills, had him on my radar for a while and can finally get him in this week. He should be D1 so no risk with him.

    Currently ranked 1,795 any advice on what i should do with 202k in the bank.
    Ziebell, Laird, Short, Hind, Cumming, C.J ( L.Jones, Prior)
    Macrae, Merrett, TT, Walsh, Titch, Byrnes, RCD, Jordan ( Scott, Ronin O’Connor)
    Grundy, McEvoy (Flynn)
    Kelly, Stevo, Warner, Powell, Farrar, Gulden( Macrae, Brockman)
    Just heard Stevo will be out so i was thinking stevo & gulden to Harmes & Hall
    really not sure tho
    Any Suggestions???

      May 11, 2021 at 6:13 pm

      get gawn. next week I would be upgrading big boy to gawn as he bottoms out in price. you are in a great spot, well done. good luck

  13. Ryan

    May 10, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    Walsh, Parish or McCluggage?

  14. Ando the brain dead barfly

    May 10, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    Connor Rozee or Bailey Dale?

    • Ethan F

      May 11, 2021 at 12:20 am

      Don’t really like either. Rozee out of the two but there’s better options. You can basically get Ridley for Dale’s price. You can get Daniel.

  15. Caleb

    May 10, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    Now thinking Gulden to J.Kelly and Rowe to Harmes? Leaves 7k or instead of 2nd trade I go Hunter to Poulter and leaves 187k

    • Ethan F

      May 11, 2021 at 12:17 am

      Nah, first set of trades is great. Improves your team a lot. Hopefully Rowe is bench and you can get someone like Koschitzke off your field.

  16. Fishxma

    May 11, 2021 at 12:26 am

    Hi guys – have macrae Merrett TT and Mitchell – what next keeper midfielder to get in? Price no problem after other trade – thoughts please

    • Ethan F

      May 11, 2021 at 12:49 am

      How does your bye structure look? If you’re heavy on R12 bye players I’d be avoiding getting another one…that rules out Duncan, Guthrie, Miller, Ellis.

      Steele and Lyons are solid picks but they don’t offer much value.

      I like Gaff. He plays 8/14 remaining games at home, where he’s noticeably better. Also averages 112 in the last five games, not including the 154 he scored in R3.

      If you want a lot of value, I’d go with Sloane. Adelaide play 4 of the easiest 8 teams to score against in the lead up to the bye, including Collingwood. Plus, he’s really cheap at $648k. Could easily rise $100k.

      They’re the premiums I like. Some more picks like Parish who will be good but I personally don’t like. I like my premiums to have proven scoring in previous seasons.

      Good luck, whoever you choose!

  17. Fishxma

    May 11, 2021 at 1:04 am

    Thanks Ethan F – out of Steele/Lyons/gaff (what about C Mills ) do u think much difference overall? Like your thoughts on gaff and being an eagles supporter probably go that way

    • Ethan F

      May 11, 2021 at 10:31 am

      I would’ve said Mills but you said keeper MID (you’d want Mills on your DEF line ideally). I’m getting Mills in this week, so that tells you how much I rate him. Will be top 3 DEF for sure. Him above Gaff for me.

  18. Fishxma

    May 11, 2021 at 1:11 am

    So Gaff or Mills(dpp and has nice run over next few weeks)?

      Lyons for me. More consistent with his scoring.

    two forced trades in lycett and stephenson. Gonna go max for lycett, should i get in RCD and a heap of extra cash for stephenson or go a harmes or a hall

    • Ethan F

      May 11, 2021 at 10:35 am

      Harmes in this situation for me. Hall has the R12 bye, if you didn’t pick him up last week vs Collingwood I’d say don’t worry about him.

  23. Jay

    May 11, 2021 at 11:38 am

    1st trade is Stephenson (forced)
    Who for 2nd trade : cox (68 BE) gulden (88 BE) or Robertson (52 BE)

    • Ethan F

      May 11, 2021 at 12:17 pm

      Probably Cox for me. Gulden has Collingwood so you can wait another week on him. Robertson isn’t losing any money yet and can easily get 52. Gulden is $47k more than Cox though. If you need that money to reach a trade target then just trade him out.

  24. James

    May 11, 2021 at 1:36 pm

    Sharp/ Flynn/ treacy/ brockman – any of these guys be playing again soon or should offload sooner than later, what order to trade out

    • Daniel

      May 11, 2021 at 6:11 pm

      brockman should be playing again, but the problem is that there is no meat on the bone with sharp and treacy. the order is flynn, treacy sharp and brockman for me, but if brock isnt named he’s second

    • Ethan F

      May 11, 2021 at 8:41 pm

      Sharp/Treacy go first, then Flynn, then Brockman in my opinion.

      I like Harmes, but I was burnt by Daniel’s 20 earlier in the season. Daniel has shown he can go higher than what Harmes has, but I still like Harmes.

    • Stimpy

      May 12, 2021 at 12:34 am

      Or Campbell down to Byrnes Stephenson up to one of the above options?

    • Ethan F

      May 12, 2021 at 2:07 am

      Campbell -> Byrnes then DPP Gulden with F.Macrae so Byrnes is on your field ahead of Jones. Easy +15 points average + a load of cash.

      Means you can afford anyone from Stephenson then, but preferably a DEF or FWD because you don’t have easy DPP with your MID line (would undo the DPP work of your first trade). Mills and Kelly are good picks.

      Fantasy coach projections…..

      Can someone please explain when you click on a player to see there breakdown and projected score and price movements, why the first screen projected amount differs from the projected amount in the ‘upcoming fixtures’ column.

      ie. Aaron hall has Rd.9 BE of 38 and projected score of 88 for a projected price change of $38k.
      Yet under his upcoming fixtures column for the same next round 9 game it shows a projected price change of $68k???

      Why the big difference for the same Rd.9 game? Confusing…

      Bloody hell your team looks good.

      Meek -> cheaper RUC, only problem is the cheapest playing RUC will probably be Sweet, who’s only $1k less. I’d rather having Sweet than some random $170k RUC though.

      Robertson -> Rosas could be a good option. $170k and the Suns have had good debuting small/medium forwards recently (Rankine, Farrar, Flanders).

    • Brian Smith

      May 13, 2021 at 7:23 pm

      You have no cash, so double down must happen. Dump one of Scott / Jones to Ralphsmith and Meek to Hayes. Or even both of Scott/Jones to Rosas & Ralphsmith. Also Highmore to Briggs worth a look.

  35. Jack

    May 12, 2021 at 4:08 pm

    My team is pretty solid at the moment, just have a few must trades this week in Gulden and Stephenson. Just not sure if I should play it’s safe and bring in a premium with a late bye such as Steele along with a rook like Sweet or risk it and take Harmes and Hall who could be a must trade in just a matter of weeks.
    Any suggestions???

    • Ethan F

      May 12, 2021 at 4:47 pm

      If your team is solid and you don’t have many PODs and you have good bench cover, Harmes and Hall are fine to take as risks. I’d probably only want one though.

      Hold Houston, plays easy games in the next three. Stephenson for Kelly in my opinion, fix up a red dot with the other if Houston is your next biggest issue.

    Any suggestions?

    • Ethan F

      May 13, 2021 at 10:36 am

      Bad DPP options makes this quite hard.

      I was gonna say Macrae -> Rosas if Macrae isn’t named, then Campbell (I assume it’s Braeden Campbell) -> Harmes. That would’ve been perfect, but no DPP options in your DEF line (only Koschitzke but that’d mean benching Idun and he’s been alright).

      If you do Macrae -> Rosas, only other option anyone’s talking about at that price range is Rozee. I don’t love that personally but it’s better than Braeden Campbell.
