    Would love about 5-6 trades this week 😀

    Whitfield, Langford, ROB, Bianco, Amartey and Haynes all need to go …

    Thoughts on Tim Kelly as a POD? Has a pretty good final run

    Which 2 go first out of Cumming,Haynes,Whitfield,Houston and Dusty

    • Ando the brain dead barfly

      July 13, 2021 at 7:43 am

      In Houston we have a problem so he can go

    • Kurt

      July 14, 2021 at 9:18 pm

      I’m getting rid of Cumming and Whitfield. Cumming has a breakeven of 121 and probs wont get that coming off 68 and 54 and having never gone that high. Houston is less urgent for me with a lower breakeven and less cash to lose. Whitfield injured, forced trade – these two players will give you heaps of coin, look at getting players like Adams, De Goey, Salem, Crisp and Ziebell

      • Kurt

        July 14, 2021 at 9:20 pm

        Also, Dusty is Dusty. His price and breakeven are stable enough and he could be big on the run home, but who knows. Again I say, t’s Dusty.

    DEF: Newman, cumming, laird, Whitfield, crisp, Daniel
    Bianco, Madden
    MID: Taranto, macrae, Merrett, Mitchell, Lyons, t Kelly, newcombe, dusty
    Bramble, O’Connor

    FWD: hall, Pendlebury, danger, de goey, Kelly, hunter
    Wilson, Amartey
    Utility: Reeves
    21k in the bank. Ranked 1162nd

    Thinking I’ll trade whitfield down to free up some cash, then make an upgrade in the midfield. Is whitfield confirmed out for 2?

    • David C

      July 15, 2021 at 8:13 am

      Probably just the 1 week.

  6. Timmo

    July 12, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Can bring in a mid below 900k. Already have Macrae,Taranto, Merrett, Titch, Kelly, Laird.

    Who do I bring in from Wines, Bont, Lyons, Zorko and Petracca?

    Currently leaning towards Wines.

    • Bernd Meyer

      July 13, 2021 at 10:40 am

      Wines has been great. My choice would be Petracca

    Desperate for help as I’ll most likely have 2 forced trades in Langford and Smith – any ideas?

    DEF: Mills, Stewart, Daniel, Houston, Haynes, Markov (Connolly, Walker)

    MID: Steele, Wines, Merrett, Taranto, Lyons, Macrae, Laird, Bianco (Newcombe, O’Connor)

    RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (Meek)

    FWD: Kelly, Hall, Langford, Smith, Martin, Amartey (Poulter, Briggs)

    Bank: 17K

    • Brian Smith

      July 13, 2021 at 8:29 pm

      You need the cash, so Langford has to go down: DeGoey, Stringer, Stephenson look likely, or a bit further to Hind. Then use that cash to get Poulter up to Kennedy for example, gets Amartey off the field.

  8. K

    July 13, 2021 at 9:20 am

    Whitfield/Foley to Ridley/Sheppard?

    • The Cricket

      July 13, 2021 at 4:46 pm

      Heppell will probably be back this round. Could adversely affect Ridley’s score

    My Team:
    Def: Lloyd, Haynes, Ridley, Newman, Hind, Harmes (Connolly, Durham)

    Ruck: Gawn, Darcy
    Fwd: J Kelly, Hall, Langford, Hunter, D Martin, M Kennedy
    Utility: O’Connor
    Bank: 4k

    Thoughts on trades? At the moment I have Langford and Whitfield injured so I am thinking of going:
    Langford – De Goey
    Whitfield – Adams

    • Burnt

      July 13, 2021 at 10:44 am

      How long is Langford out for.

      • David C

        July 15, 2021 at 8:11 am

        2-3 weeks

    • Kurt

      July 14, 2021 at 9:01 pm

      These sound like literally perfect trades. I got rid of Langford last week (lucky me) but still have Whitfield and I’m getting rid of Cumming too. I might be going to Adams and JDG as well but will have to do some serious shuffling

  10. Brucey Don't Like Rusty

    July 13, 2021 at 11:02 am

    Should I trade Ceglar or Lachie Hunter to RoMo or Hold Trade?

    • J

      July 13, 2021 at 12:07 pm

      Petracca, merrett or neale??

    Too late to bring in Touk?

    • Aby Benny

      July 13, 2021 at 2:07 pm

      never too late tobring him in

  12. Cam

    July 13, 2021 at 3:33 pm

    Salem or Stewart? Neale or Adams?

    • Cam

      July 13, 2021 at 3:36 pm

      Stewart, Salem or danger?

  13. Lem

    July 13, 2021 at 3:59 pm

    I want to cash out on cumming and need to get rid of Whitfield. Right now my trades this week are:
    Whitfield, Cumming
    Ziebell, de goat

    $0 left in the bank after this traded in a premium last week

    Any help would be nice cheers

    • Kurt

      July 14, 2021 at 9:08 pm

      Hey mate, I’m getting rid of the exact same players. I am strongly considering Adams, Salem, Ziebell and Crisp mainly. Definitely getting JDG for his breakeven of 38. In your case, with no money I would consider Adams or Salem instead, with the hopes of their cash growing and then cashing in later on. I have enough cash for any player at all and I still think I’m gonna chase value in those players

  14. Stan

    July 13, 2021 at 5:12 pm

    These are my trades this week( I’ve got 116k remaining from last round)

    Lachie Whitfield for Jake Lloyd and Harmes for Lachie Neale

    Is this a good trade ?

  15. Mighty Puds

    July 13, 2021 at 5:13 pm

    Risked it with a sideways of Cumming and Langford to De Goat and Hall last week. Plan this week is to go:
    Whitefield, Bianco

    In: Lloyd, Bramble

    leaves $109k in the bank to hopefully (using another bench downgrade) upgrade Amartey and have Bramble as last rookie on field. Thoughts???

  16. Musca

    Ziebell, hall, Lloyd, short, Daniel, Cummins

      July 14, 2021 at 12:48 pm

      Trey Ruscoe is looking good.

      • TJ

        July 14, 2021 at 12:49 pm

        is he a potential captain option given they are playing Carlton??

        • Lachlan Goodwin

          July 14, 2021 at 1:37 pm

          I’d definitely back him in. Even as a medical substitute he’s the type of player that can go massive in a small amount of time. Im expecting a 31 from 15% game time.

          • Shredder pig

            July 14, 2021 at 2:39 pm

            Bruh who tf is Trey Ruscoe. Genuine list clogger, can’t even get a game for the Collingwood 2’s.

          • TJ

            July 14, 2021 at 2:40 pm

            I’m just worried about how he is going to score these points. How can he get those +4s when he always has the ball?? Also given Collingwood’s horrific ball movement I’m not sure he will be able to rack as many possessions as possible. Having said this, playing on Sunday, I will back him in as my captain to fall back on.

            • Lachlan Goodwin

              July 14, 2021 at 2:48 pm

              Did you not see the hot pies vs the tigers in the last qtr last week. They are well and truly back. Most interestingly Ruscoe came on as the medical sub in that qtr, only for them to play well…. I’d say just lock and load the C on him and watch the points roll in

              • Kurt

                July 14, 2021 at 9:26 pm

                Don’t know what you guys are on about. This guy you’re talking about literally went down in price from 200k, can’t get a game, has never gone above like 30 points and occasionally plays as the medical sub.. and you want to put him as captain? What?? Please explain this madness

                • TJ

                  July 15, 2021 at 2:48 pm

                  Mate I pay $5 a month for Fantasy Coach (this shows me projected) and Trey Rusco has a projected of 118, which is the highest out of anyone. If putting the C on him was not a certainty, I don’t know what is!!

  18. J

    July 14, 2021 at 1:23 pm

    Neale or Oliver??

    • Kurt

      July 14, 2021 at 9:30 pm

      Tough call, you probs want both eventually. Neale breakeven is 93, Olivers is 117, so form and stats would say Neale. I have both but I’d hop on Neale now I think

      • Kurt

        July 14, 2021 at 9:35 pm

        Then again just checked and Oliver in a very similar price situation! They are both at their lowest for the year. Oliver is just a little more likely to keep going down a bit for a week or so

    Moving on Langford and a rookie for a 170k (possibly west) and one of Adams, Lloyd or Walsh – Which is best?
