    Great podcast again.
    Bring in Cripps/ Clarke for Hayes/Rowell.

    Bowey, B.E 52, scores 92, now B.E of 54.
    Feel I’m being ripped off some cash gen.

    Best def around 700k. Looking to upgrade Blakely but only 100k in the bank.

    Oliver or Petracca

    I think Rachele might make his BE, so he can hang around for another 1 to 2 weeks.
    Horne-Francis is also still making cash, so he can stay too, (then become Cripps).

    I’m thinking of trading Blakey to Doc.
    Or should I take Short?

    Rowell/Butters > Cripps/Rozee???

    • Bill

      April 26, 2022 at 8:34 pm

      I’d stay with Butters. Rozee is a sideways trade.

      Sideways trades can end in tears.

      • Mike

        April 26, 2022 at 8:55 pm

        Yeah Bill.. keep Butters.
        P4b, I’ve gone for Rowell to Cripps @M7.

          Come on, guys! Let me have my rage trade for a little while. Sanity kicks in later. Butters is on notice.

          I do believe that I will go Hayes/Ward > Cripps/Clark as long as Clark is named

          • Bill

            April 27, 2022 at 3:24 am

            LOL, Pendles.
            Good luck with whatever you do.

          • Bill

            April 27, 2022 at 2:26 pm

            Then again, the traders are keen on the Butters to Rozee trade.
            I don’t have Butters in fantasy.

    Which option..

    Rachelle and Crouch To Clark (if named) and Oliver/Walsh
    Hayes and Butters to Clark and Dunkley
    Rachelle and Horne Francis for Clark and De Goey

    I’m not convinced Butters can be top 6 and even if does find some form with the massive break even could part with for now..

    • Ryan

      April 27, 2022 at 5:33 pm

      Do Rachele and crouch out. Butters will pick back up, has been sick the past week. Crouch has no chance of being a premo, at least butters is a chance

  8. Doug

    April 27, 2022 at 9:05 am

    Anyone think S.Hayes can knock out another 75+ score against the Saints duo??

    After bringing in Rozee for J.Hayes at F6, I can only get Grundy to Ladhams/Witts/Nank, none of which I want long term, so thinking of holding for another week until I can get up to Speakano or Big Max

  9. Jules

    Hey legends, what do we think of Butters to Rozee and Rachele to C Oliver via some dpp? Means I keep Grundy on the bench and field Pruess. Sell Grundy next week and move Xerri to ruck bench and upgrade to a premium forward or back next week?

    • Mike

      April 27, 2022 at 11:19 am

      What happens if another player gets hurt next week and you’ve still got Grundy to flick?

    I have $285K in the so with Grundy going out and a couple of cows fattened up enough for slaughter how should I proceed:
    – Trade Grundy to Gawn and fat cow to mid pricer ($670K)
    – Trade Grundy to Gawn and fat cow to a cash cow and leave $470 in the bank
    – Trade Grundy to a Preuss/Marshall and bring in a a premium forward
    – Trade Grundy, play S. Hayes at R2 (H. Dixon at R3), and bring in two def/mid/fwd premo
    – Bench Grundy, Play a cow ruck and use the 2 trades to move on fattened cows for a premium and new cow
    – Something else I am not considering.

    I would be looking at moving on a J. Rachele/W. Rioli. They are both on field, so one will defiantly be going this week.

      Probably the time to lock in Gawny, will just increase in value. Maybe lock in Newcombe as your mid pricer you get in unless Greg Clark gets named, probably lock him in

  11. Garry

    April 27, 2022 at 12:16 pm

    Cripps or Oliver to average more the rest of the season?

  12. Bill

    April 27, 2022 at 2:30 pm

    So who are the three Melbourne players out with Covid protocols?

    • Minister for Manila

      April 27, 2022 at 3:59 pm

      Luke Jackson is one I read somewhere

      • Minister for Manila

        April 27, 2022 at 4:03 pm

        + Ky Pickett & Tom Sparrow

        • Bill

          April 27, 2022 at 4:36 pm

          At least it wasn’t Petracca- showing my self-interest.

  13. Tyler Rumbold

    April 27, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    Really need some help I need to trade out Grundy and hayes who are both on field. Should I trade them out for max gawn and Colman or pruess and Gresham.

    Which ones is the best option and will give me the best chance of winning my league this week ??
