    I have 21 playing this week and need to prepare for round 13 (only 16 playing)

    Absolutely no idea how to go about it due to the lack of rookies to downgrade to, but am thinking;

    Macrae -> Heeney
    Sharp -> Rosas
    Bryan -> Reeves

    Would love any feedback, cheers legends!!

      I’d consider trading Koschitzke out as he’s starting to lose cash. I also prefer Madden over Rosas. Fan of Macrae -> Heeney and Bryan -> Reeves though.

      • Bman

        May 31, 2021 at 1:32 pm

        Cheers for the reply Ethan! I’d much rather Madden over Rosas as well, however I can’t afford to trade in a rd13 bye player hence why I’m going with Rosas as he’s the only player that suits my bye but I’m not too sold on him

    Do I go Phillips to Mayne with 150k left, or Phillips to Heeney with 250k left?

    • PowerAde

      May 31, 2021 at 1:16 pm

      I’d chose Heeney over Mayne, the extra cash is cream

          My boyfriend handles my trades. And a few other things. He reckons I should trade Pendles and Farrar out for Bianco and Lyons or Took.

                  I wouldn’t mind this conversation to not happen on here. I think I speak for a lot of people (judging by emails and tweets sent) about being over the whole feet thing.

                  You don’t need to mention it in your comments. Make your name ‘Feet Slime Girl’ and be done with it, no need to have it in your comments.

    D. Laird, Crisp, Mills,Stewart, Harmes, Idun
    M. Macrae, Titch, Zerret, Taranto, McCluggage, Walsh, Jordon, RCD
    R. Gawn, Grundy (Flynn)
    F. Hind, Hall, Warner, Robertson, Kozzie, Waterman

    Warner(losing money)->Dusty
    Kozzie(bye, maxed)->Heeney

    This leaves me with 4 rooks on the field. But I don’t know if 3 “midpricers” into my team is the best option at this stage of the season. Ideally dangerfield and Duncan come back into my team in 2-4 weeks. Still need docherty. Still need Zorko. Are there better options? Not many downgrade targets this week? And don’t know Grundy’s position.

    • Ethan F

      June 1, 2021 at 12:49 am

      Love these trades, but now more Grundy news has came out. Would be bold to hold Grundy.

  9. Brian Smith

    May 31, 2021 at 4:22 pm

    For this round I have 15 players, plus 2 possibles (Sweet, Scott). So I need to trade out some R12 bye players and I’m looking at Phillips to Heeney, Kozzie to a rookie (pick one on Friday), and Jiath to a mid priced D (eg Baker, Harmes, Moore). That means I’m carrying Grundy.
    Should I consider trading him since he’s out 3 weeks (2 injured plus bye)?

  10. Dulcify

    May 31, 2021 at 7:13 pm

    With Grundy likely out until round 15, I am contemplating trading him to English. If English can play 2 of the 3 bye weeks and score 80 plus that would be acceptable. His DPP could be handy when Grundy returns, move English to the forward line and hopefully have the cash to be able to afford to get Grundy back in. The trade also adds $216K to the kitty which could be used to upgrade Phillips or Warner.

  11. Bec

    May 31, 2021 at 7:22 pm

    The Grundy option, what to do.

    I’m going to hold him this week I have potentially 19 players.
    Then trade Grundy next week to Reeves.

    Which means I’ll be rolling with Gawn and hopefully Flynn with Reeves as cover.
    Grundy BE is high so I’ll look to get him back the week after he comes back.

    Which means it will be time to flick Flynn and have Reeves as R3

    Trying to get cash and play the BE game

    M. Crisp, Oliver, Taranto, Phillips, Bynes, Bont, Jordon, RCD (F.Macrae, Brockman)
    R. Grundy, Gawn (Flynn)

    two trades:
    Grundy -> Darcy
    Idun -> Madden
    Phillips -> Macrae
    with 61k left over


    Grundy -> Darcy
    Meek -> Reeves
    Phillips -> Docherty
    with 8k left over

    will take any other trades though.

    Hi guys – thoughts please

    Option 1 – Sholl to Mills
    Option 2 – Highmore/scott to heeney
    Option 3 – Sholl to Heeney (with extra cash)

    • Ethan F

      June 1, 2021 at 1:04 am

      Sholl to Mills if you want to be safe. Sholl to Heeney is probably the better move though.

    Any info on what’s happening with Footywire with the BE data? Hasn’t been updated this week, so is there another source?

    • Belly

      May 31, 2021 at 9:25 pm

      Yeah it’s still stuffed.
      Best I’ve found is
      Bit basic but click into more on the BE buys section and it will give you every player listed in BE order.

  15. James

    May 31, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    Hey guys,

    So during the bye rounds, do we have to put the gun players who have their bye on the bench. Or can we just leave them on the field and the bench players scores will count automatically.

    • Rusty

      May 31, 2021 at 11:02 pm

      Yes, swap out the players with the bye rounds and put them on the bench. Players on the bench don’t count. This round is obviously tricky but from next round, trade out those who are having their buys for premiums who have come off their byes, Look to improve your team through the byes and end up with more premiums than at the start of the byes

    • Brian Smith

      June 2, 2021 at 4:28 pm

      Doesn’t matter where the Bye players are, just make sure all your Players are on the field. If they are not on the field, and not tagged with the E, they won’t count. Whether they are gun or not is completely irrelevant.

  16. Bunda

    June 1, 2021 at 1:00 pm

    Got 800k to spend on any position, which premo player should I get? Whos the best value?

  17. Bunda

    June 1, 2021 at 1:02 pm

    My trades:
    Lachie Young -> Bianco
    Grundy -> Gawn
    Serong -> ???

    Got 800k, who should I trade Serong for, can be any position

    • Ethan F

      June 1, 2021 at 5:53 pm

      Could try to get some value with a Cripps, Hunter or Heeney pick. I also like Steele, Wines, Mills and Crisp if you want an uber premium.

    Def: Laird, Hall, Short, Hind, Markov, Idun (burgess, frederick)

    Ruck: Grundy, Gawn (Flynn)
    Fwd: Kelly, Dusty, Phillips, powell, Warner, Kosi (Jones, Rowe)

    Need to get kosi off field but what to do with grundy? Only 7k in bank :(

  19. Brian Smith

    June 2, 2021 at 4:39 pm

    Decided to trade Grundy – do I take a value premium (something like: average over 100, b/e under 80) or go straight to the top and get Macrea? I’ll trade Flynn + RCD back to Grundy around R15/16.
