    Need help to decide..

    1. Lipinski and Rowell to green and blakley (JHF on ground, Mccartin bench)


    2. Rowell and Hayes to cripps and rookie (Mccartin on ground, JHF bench)

      Do you have all the must have rookies? Fixing them before either of these trades is possibly the go.

      If you are backing in green and blakey to be keepers, than 1.

      Otherwise 2 is the best set and forget option going forward.

    Ranked 7,700ish with 2 pods failing Young/Marshall with Neale/Green/Cripps/English/Hewett successful picks to start with haven’t scored well with capt with Steele rd 1,2 MacRae Rd 3

    Would like some opinions
    Lipinski to heeney or
    SDK/ skinner to O’Driscoll/ Stein

    I can see heeney go big against north and am leaning that way but should prob be doing a rookie fix up.

    Not really sold on o’driscoll or Stein but the rookies on my other lines are all good.

    • Shags

      April 6, 2022 at 2:10 pm

      Stein for JS (If Haynes out for awhile) but NOD being the only non kpp defender rookie, and possible switch with Daicos if he gets def, is handy. JS shakey tho.

      Back your gut on Heens, although hes not the value he was round 1.

      preuss is a must mate gotta have him, then get crippa the gun/beastly man

    • Stall456

      April 6, 2022 at 5:52 pm

      100% hayes out for preuss, then look at your rookies and make sure you have all the good ones. If youre happy with that id look at swapping out rachele maybe, hard to say if theres no pressing trades

  6. Sienna Preuss

    April 6, 2022 at 3:45 pm

    I really agree with Nikolas Spher. Preuss is gonna get at least 170 this weekend.

    April 6, 2022 at 3:56 pm

    Is trading josh kelly to tom green stupid? I think green is having a ‘darcy parish 2021’ season and has displaced kelly in that midfield, plus this lets me get preuss from hayes and leaves me with 93k to upgrade rachele/rowell/brodie next week

    • Labrats

      April 6, 2022 at 4:49 pm

      I would go for it

    • Andy

      April 6, 2022 at 6:04 pm

      Sounds good!

    DEF: Short, Whitfield, Hewett, Dale, Sicily, Foley (McCartin, De Koning)
    MID: McCrae, Steele, Neale, Cripps, Rowell, JHF, Daicos, Ward (MacDonald, Mead)
    Ruck: Grundy, Preuss (Hayes)
    FWD: Dunkley, Butters, Cogs, Gresham, Brodie, Martin (Rachelle, Durdin)
    UTE: Hough

    Thoughts on the below please. Is it to early for a premo upgrade or should i focus on generating cash ?Current bank is $50,000
    A) Hayes & Rowell to Tom Green & Hugh Dixon
    B) De Koning & Hough to O’Driscoll & Reef Mcinness

    • Stall456

      April 6, 2022 at 5:49 pm

      my philosophy has always been to make sure I have all of the good rookies early in the season, prioritising that over score, at least for the first 5 rounds or so. If you think you have all the good rookies you can afford to get then yeah I like (A) better. I think green could be a top 10-15 mid this year easily

  9. Pete

    April 6, 2022 at 5:14 pm

    If you had Skinner, JDG and Owens, would you:
    1) English to FWD, trade in Grundy for JDG, then do Owens to BOD
    2) Owens to BOW and Rowell to Premo Mid

  10. Stall456

    April 6, 2022 at 5:46 pm

    is preuss worth getting as a r3? Hes got a different bye to my other rucks, Ive got grundy and ROB there and dont see a big need to trade out either so far.
    Was planning to trade out j.hayes and degoey, so I could bring in preuss easily enough at R3, maybe even get english in as well in the forward line
    What do you think guys?

    • Shags

      April 6, 2022 at 9:22 pm

      Im not sure you can justify having so much value on his bench, however you can fix that up later weeks, especially if one of your rucks is English (fwd status can move to fwd line).

  11. Shags

    April 6, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    1. Rach>Reef and Rowell>Green 2. Skinner>Stein (NOD) Gibcus>Reef + 74k*

      I think I’ll hold durdin. and get Skinner out instead.

    Thoughts on Tom Mitchell? Hold or Fold?

    • texantexan

      April 6, 2022 at 10:02 pm

      I’m folding – Mitchell to Cripps, McCartin to Bowey as my D6

        April 7, 2022 at 10:27 pm

        Glad I reversed this before lockout!

          April 8, 2022 at 1:15 pm

          lucky, Bowey sucked last night.
          Such a crap game to watch, even worse watching Bowey just stand there watching the ball most of the night not leading for marks or anything.
          He will be gone for me next week

    Struggling on 2nd Trade

    1st trade – Witts to Preuss as R2 (have Grundy R1 and Dixon R3) and also Xerri F6/Hayes F7) with $343k left

    Options for Trade 2 –
    1 – Rachelle to English as Ruck backup if needed with $22k left over
    2 – shuffle bench with huge bulk money for next week upgrade
    – Hayes/Skinner or SDK to O’Driscoll

    Thoughts on 1 or 2 and if 2, which one?

    • Kingzy

      April 8, 2022 at 1:14 pm

      Rachele to English is a huge upgrade, English top RUC or FWD which ever way you look at it.
      Only going to get more expensive each week at this rate

    Is Will Day worth brining in? Is his role any good for fantasy?

    • Ben

      April 7, 2022 at 2:43 pm

      Mate you comment something dumber each week.

    • Kingzy

      April 8, 2022 at 1:12 pm

      Id say not.
      If your looking at that price range, Blakey would be better in my opinion.
      Fantastic run North, Eagles, Hawks. should hit 85 each week

  16. Dylzy05

    April 7, 2022 at 2:36 pm

    i got a few options with 1 trade remaining with 80k remaining

    A. get Broad from gresham and move mccartin into the forward line (ill replace him next week)
    B. Get Xerri for Rachele
    C. get Xerri for gresham and upgrade Mccartin next round with the left overcash

    • Squid

      April 7, 2022 at 11:19 pm

      You can do better, try aiming at cash cows and keepers now, Rachele out is fine and Gresham is poo but Xerri and especially Broad are not worth getting in at this stage, you missed them, they’ve done their best work $ wise and won’t be keepers.

      • Kingzy

        April 8, 2022 at 1:09 pm

        Yea agree with Squid Xerri isnt worth getting now, Rachele could score similar.
        Broad isnt a good option he has never had fantasy game.

        Gresham is avg 87, thats a win for him at his price whats wrong with him? I had him at an 85 avg preseason. Made 29K last round, still making cash.

        Why not chop a rookie like McCartin to O’driscall, bank the cash and have another good rookie on the pine?

  17. texantexan

    April 7, 2022 at 10:31 pm

    McCartin -> Miller for cash, field Stein at D6
    which enables Rowell -> Green & 25k bank


    Rachele -> Xerri
    McCartin -> Miller, Stein D6, Rowell stays M5, $160k cash for next week

  18. JL

    April 8, 2022 at 11:33 am

    What two of Hayes, McCartin and Durdin would you trade to get to Preuss? TY.

    • EK

      April 8, 2022 at 12:56 pm

      I would go Hayes and McCartin and hold durdin for another couple of week

  19. Kingzy

    April 8, 2022 at 1:05 pm

    Wasssup players.

    Big trade week this week.

    DEF:Short, Whit, Daniel, Hewett, Sicily, Bowy (McCartin, Gibcus)
    MID:Macrae, Neale, Cripps, Lipinski, Rowell, JHF, Daicos, Ward (McDonald, Mead)
    RUC:Gawn, Pruess (Hayes)
    FWD:Dunks, Cogs, Heeney, Butters, Brodie, Xerri (Rachele, SDK)

    $158K in the kitty

    My first thoughts are Bowey sucks and ruined my week already.
    Gawn taking VC

    Trade ideas:

    Rachele – Mcinnes
    JHF – Tom Green.
    Field McInnes this week over Ward, vs West coast and with Adams out should score well.

    Gibcus – O’driscall
    SDK – nic martin.
    Field martin, shift JHF to bench via Brodie

  20. Kulu

    April 8, 2022 at 1:24 pm

    Second option, gets rid of 2 rookies who are essentially cooked in cash generation for Martin and NOD who wil likely generate a fair bit. Rachele with an easy next couple of games should get up around that 450-475k mark, as will JHF. Both are great trades but I think the latter will set you up better.
