    Thinking of trading in Cripps and Rowell for Touk and O’Driscoll, it’ll leave me with $276 in the bank for next week’s trades.

      I would do that if you don’t hold Cripps 100%

    Looking at two options:
    Rowell + Ward gets me Green + 190 rookie
    Lipinski + Ward gets me Green + NO’D
    NO’D just for cash gen, not on field. So question is which to dump first – Lipinski or Rowell.
    Any thoughts?

      Keep Rowell and get rid of Lipinski, that way you can get Green and O’Driscoll and not waste space and give up points on a 190 rookie

    Who to Trade Out?
    Will Day (out 2 weeks?) OR Rowell?

    • poweyyy

      April 13, 2022 at 10:06 am

      Will day, 2 weeks is 2 too many and Rowell can bounce back

    Thinking of holding Cripps and instead trade out Butters for Heeney, only thing I’m worried about is that with Buddy gone Heeney will be playing up forwards more, costing him points. Thoughts?? I have 58K in the bank.

    • Straight shooter

      April 13, 2022 at 12:17 pm

      Surely Ken plays Butters in the middle or gets the sack. No point playing him forward if U can’t get clean ball use into the 50. If U watched the last qtr he was by far there best mid

      • NP

        April 13, 2022 at 1:10 pm

        I’m a swans fan and a heeney owner – but Butters will score better this year… He’s a gun mid, just needs to play there more

    • brian Smith

      April 13, 2022 at 2:23 pm

      Why trade Butters? His uninjured average is 103!

    • Jase

      April 13, 2022 at 5:35 pm

      Butters in guys with wines out surely.

  7. poweyyy

    April 13, 2022 at 10:26 am

    Get in Bailey Smith or Ben Keays

    • Straight shooter

      April 13, 2022 at 12:19 pm

      Keays can’t trust Bevo

    My first trade is almost guaranteed to be Ward to Windhager but not sure with what to do with my second:
    1) Trade Cripps to a uber-premium mid or value pick. Leaning towards holding though since if he’s out for only 1 week it could be a waste of a trade, and also if he’s out for longer guys with a very high BE like Touk and Trac should be even cheaper next week
    2) Trade Lipinksi which gives me 900k to get a def premium like Doc or Short (allows me put Paddy McCartin or NOD on the bench and use the loophole)
    3) Trade Rowell and have 800k for a lesser premium (Sinclair, Dawson)

    • Harry Andrews

      April 13, 2022 at 3:03 pm

      always try and trade for a premium i think short bit cheaper than doc, keep cripps its only 1 week and hes literally an uber premium if you take out last weeks 36 his average was ike 125

    • Andy

      April 13, 2022 at 3:04 pm

      2 sounds like a good option.

  9. Harry Andrews

    April 13, 2022 at 3:00 pm

    im holding onto cripps, afl news is saying its only 1 week
    so my 2 trades are:
    SDK (probs not playing with stewart coming back) to N’OD
    Hough (probs not playing with TK and shuey coming back) to Windhager
    this leaves me with windy (UTL) with cripps M9 and mead M10 who should i start out of mead and ward, i think ward with more scoring potential??

    • Speedmen Joe's

      April 13, 2022 at 5:54 pm

      One option you could look at is putting the ‘E’ on windy for the midfield spot and if he gets a half decent score put crippa on your field to loop windy’s score (windy plays saturday arvo while carlton play on the sunday). Bit of risk involved for looping in the midfield as you have eight players but worth a shot. If he fails, probs a flip of the coin between ward and mead. I don’t really back either of them against geelong and carlton but like you said, ward does have more scoring potential (assuming he gets picked!). I’ll likely being doing this as well. Other bail out option is if windy fails to score and you don’t like mead or ward (or they’re not picked), you can consider trading crippa to a premium still left to play. I’d need a pretty bad score from windy to do this though, hard to trade out crippa considering what he’s done.

    Please help not sure what to do with trades (obviously Cripps is an issue but torn as to whether to keep him for a week since he’s so good and will be hard to get back.

    Def: short crisp hewett Sicily young NOD (smith, SDK)
    MID: petracca, Macca, Neale, Cripps, Brodie, daicos, rachelle, JHF (MacDonald, Hough)
    Ruck: Gawn, English (preuss)
    Fwd: dunks, heeney, treloar, cogs, Martin, Dixon(only on field due to preuss susp) (Durdin, mccartin)

    Utl: Ward

      Ward to Windhager, Cripps to Keays. Good luck CR.

      • CR

        April 13, 2022 at 7:53 pm

        Thanks for that mate, not Mccartin down to Windhager?

        • Dulcify

          April 13, 2022 at 9:20 pm

          Check team selections CR and then make your choice, good luck.🤞

    So I’m pretty set on trading cripps out to neale which leaves me with $100k left if lipinski to tom green a valid 2nd trade as I feel comfortable with all my rookies and 100k there isn’t much to upgrade rowell too

  12. Gabe

    April 13, 2022 at 5:53 pm

    Which of English, Duncan and Heeney should i get in?

    • Dem

      April 13, 2022 at 6:46 pm

      Is lapinski a hold till all rookies are off field or a trade

  13. Caydan

    April 13, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Hold on to Hayes as he comes back in with Ryder out.. or trade him out to Dixon? I have pruess aswell so just need a replacement until he’s back.

  14. Minister for Manila

    April 13, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Steele or Keays?

  15. Gary Lion

    April 13, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    In the top 100 trying to make an aggressive trade. No real on field problems.

    Crouch > Keays; or
    Chapman > Duncan

    While already dealing with Crippa out, I’ve got the double blow with Wines out also. Keeping Crippa but Wines needs to go. Which premium to bring in?
    – Smith (numbers look great but lots of talent in the doggies midfield)
    – Petracca (tagged in recent weeks)
    – Macrae
    – Keays
    – Brayshaw (worried about the tag)
    – Boak

    Wines was my POD so thinking Boak could be an option to bring in with Wines out. Also like Smith but not sure if his scores are sustainable.

    Trying to trade out rowell. Gives me 800k in the bank. Should I go Sinclair (DPP) or get a mid like green or simpkin?
