    JHF to stevens and rowell to english, leaves me with clark and mccomb only guys under 600k on the field still. Thoughts?
    Im still carrying rachele, dixon, dekoning, barras, ward on the bench not making a huge amount of money but this is the only way I can get a premium in this week

    • John1

      May 9, 2022 at 8:20 pm

      could get trac in for his run the next couple weeks and his bye but ive already got oliver and gawn, crisp is the other one ive been looking at

    Peoples thoughts on melbourne version of brayshaw? hes been good the last couple weeks in his half back role. Salem is still a few weeks away

    • Mark Fawcett

      May 9, 2022 at 8:52 pm

      He’s my first trade in this week. Looking at going Daicos to Brayshaw in the midfield and swinging Brayshaw to the backline maybe next week. That would then complete my backline for now with Crisp, Houston, Whitfield, Sicily, Zorko and Brayshaw. Going to hold McCartin another week or as my D6.

  3. Angus

    May 9, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    Trading Mead to Clark, no brainer
    But the next trade is a bit harder;
    JHF to D Cameron/ Duncan
    Daicos to Touk
    Butters to English/ Duncan

  4. Mark Fawcett

    May 9, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    Team I’m looking at having after trades of Daicos & Durdin to Braysahw and some 190k rookie is as follows with 87k in the bank and a ranking of 545. Getting a little light on emergencies but think I’m good to swing players around via DPP if needed for coverage.

    Def: Crisp, Houston, Whitfield, Sicily, Zorko, McCartin (De Koning, Stein)
    Mid: Steele, B. Smith, Neale, Miller, Macrae, Cripps, Brayshaw, N. Martin (McEntree, Clark)
    Ruck: Gawn, Preuss (S. Hayes)
    Fwd: Dunkley, Taranto, Coniglio, Brodie, Butters, Hamilton (Mead, Rosas)
    Utility: A named 190k rookie if possible.

    • Mark Fawcett

      May 9, 2022 at 10:15 pm

      Will be swinging Brayshaw to backline in a week or 2 depending on McCartin’s price increase and playing time.

    • JungleMuffin

      May 10, 2022 at 5:03 pm

      Need to find a way to get Clark on field, especially when you’ve got Paddy starting.

      Can you not swing Daicos to D6, cash in McCartin and Durdin/Whoever, and play Clark on field? Should work out +30 or so playing Daicos over McCartin at D6, Clark -10-30 depending on which Brayshaw you’re missing out on, and the upgrade from McCartin + 2nd trade should put you well in the green?

      Who could you get to with the cash from McCartin + Durdin? Could go Paddy to a midfield rook and upgrade Butters to a premium? Should have you well ahead on points.

  5. Oscar Crafter

    May 9, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    Horne-Francis –> 190k playing (bench)
    Butters –> Whoever I want. (thinking Brayshaw.)

    Suggestions for both trades welcome

    • Cormac

      May 10, 2022 at 1:16 pm

      Go horne to G Clark and then butters to clarry. Clarry has very good run.

  6. Daron

    May 9, 2022 at 9:37 pm

    Butters replacement in order – Moore, Duncan and Parker ?

    • Jayden

      May 9, 2022 at 10:53 pm

      Parker, Moore, Duncan. Watch Duncan again this week IMO

  7. Jaiden

    Def: Short, Crisp, Dawson, Sicily, Daicos, NOD ( SDK, skinner)

    Mid: Dunkley, Steele, Smith, miller, Mitchell, Rowell, mccomb, Carroll ( windhager, mead )

    Ruc: Gawn, Preuss ( Dixon )

    Fwd: Taranto, heeney, de goey, brodie, butters, Martin ( mcentee, durdin )


    Got 123k cash. Thinking mead > Clark and Rowell > Gus Brayshaw, can’t afford cripps. Any thoughts appreciated

    • brian Smith

      May 10, 2022 at 3:54 pm

      Titch and Rowell to Cripps and Newcombe

    • JungleMuffin

      May 10, 2022 at 5:07 pm

      Clark is a must. Not sure about Angus Brayshaw, just going to upgrade him again later probably.

      I’d suggest a double downgrade, with your cash gen looking in trouble.

  8. James

    May 10, 2022 at 7:31 am

    Help on next moves and who to look to bring in.
    Bank 15K

      May 10, 2022 at 5:13 pm

      Clark in.

      Xerri/Hough/JHF/Dixon/Durdin/Windhager out.

      Should be able to manage JHF and Xerri to Clark and premium, improving your score by +50.

  9. Sebastian

    May 10, 2022 at 7:42 am

    I’m looking to bring in a mid jet. I’ve only got $866k
    Who should I be chasing? Currently contemplating:
    D Parish $861
    C Petracca $854
    Or should I go Dawson / Parker and flick them to defence / forward respectively?

    • John1

      May 10, 2022 at 8:43 am

      trac has a good run coming up and hes super cheap for what he can be, id get him in if he doesnt ruin your bye structure
      If not trac then dawson/parker are really good options too
      If you dont have cripps yet then hes gotta be the number 1 option above all the others right now

    May 10, 2022 at 8:39 am

    Playing for league win only and byes don’t count. Considering stacking and bringing in another premo mid now but it leaves me playing Paddy Mc onfield for a few weeks. Strategy to downgrade after this week and focus on new rooks over the byes, does that seem ok?

  11. Fred

    May 10, 2022 at 9:00 am

    Cripps (Bye R12) for value or Oliver (Bye R14) for better bye round & run?

  12. Jossy

    May 10, 2022 at 9:13 am

    Who is safer to field, MacDonald or Durdin? (just for this week)

    Fwd: Taranto, Parker, Treloar, Butters, Martin, Rioli (Williams, Dixon)

    Any trade ideas to save my team? Haven’t taken it too seriously this year but it’s really bugging me. Haven’t got a lot of salary cap

    • brian Smith

      May 10, 2022 at 3:57 pm

      Durdin to Clark, any bench red dot to any bench green dot – once teams are named

  14. Cormac

    May 10, 2022 at 1:14 pm

    Def: Doc, Whit, Sic, Hewett (assuming he plays this week), Hayden Young, Daicos. (Mccartin, De Koning)
    Mid: Steele, Oliver, Neale, Miller, Macrae, Cripps, NOD, Mccomb, ( Carroll, Mead)
    Ruck: Gawn, Pruess (S Hayes)
    Fwd Dunks, Treloar, Coniglio, Brodie, Butters, N Martin ( Durdin, Mcdonald)
    UTL ( Hobbs)

    Do i can either go butters and mead to G Clark and Parker or for a big cash grab and go to G Clark and D Cameron and then have 300k spare for a premium next week.

    DEF: Crisp, Short, Doch, Whit, Hewett, Daicos (SDK, Skinner)
    MID: Steele, Boak, Cripps, Baz, Macrae, Neale, O’Driscoll, Clark (McComb, Stephens)
    RUCK: ROB, Preuss (S.Hayes)
    FWD: Dunks, Cogs, Brodie, Rozee, Martin, Coleman (McCartin, Durdin)
    UTL: Sharp
    BANK: 167k
    This week’s locked – Hough gone to Clark, Butters to Cripps – done with the Butters experiment, only player im behind on culling is Durdin and ive got the money to play around with. Glaring issue is next week, looking at a couple trades to fix up bye structure:
    Daicos -> Darcy Cameron
    Cogs -> Clarry/Laird
    Cogs has done shit all and ive got trades to spare, plus heavy on the RD 12 bye: Cameron and Clarry put me 2 up on the RD 14 bye, and Oliver has a great run, but Laird gives me a RD 13 bye, nice POD and has an amazing run late with double eagles double norf. Any advisement would be appreciated

    • John1

      May 10, 2022 at 9:29 pm

      hes still collingwoods number 1 mid for CBAs, he should be fine. He had the week he was sick and you could write off last game as a bad day

    Is there a ruck worth getting outside of English and Preuss>

    • John1

      May 10, 2022 at 9:28 pm

      You could probably make arguments for ROB, darcy, witts or nank but ultimately preuss is scoring better than all of them and is cheaper too. English if he keeps at an average 95+ will be a standard pick too, especially with his fwd/ruck he could be useful over the byes

    • pendles4brownlow

      May 10, 2022 at 11:36 pm

      Only if you can bring in someone else on another line that will increase your score by more than the difference between this pair and the rest.

  19. Jono

    May 10, 2022 at 9:00 pm

    Andy Brayshaw, Oliver or parish?

    • Russell Pindick

      May 10, 2022 at 9:11 pm

      Go Oliver good match ups. All good though.
      Gawn looking more likely to play that right?

      • John1

        May 10, 2022 at 9:25 pm

        melbourne listed him as available on their injury list today, so he should be playing unless they decide to rest him

  20. Oscar

    May 10, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    Who should i field this week out of – McComb, Wanganeen-Milera, G Clark, Cooper Stephens, Nathon O’Driscoll

    Can field 3

    • Stu

      May 10, 2022 at 9:34 pm

      Without looping any of them, would be Clark, McComb, NOD, Wanganeen-Milera, Stephens in that order for me.

    Def: Whitfield, Hewett, Rich, Sic, NDaicos, NOD (McCartin, SDK)

    Forward: Dunks, Cogs, Butters, Brodie, Martin, Coleman (Windhager, Durdin)
    Utl: Mead
    Cash: 67k
    Currently thinking:
    Green > Oliver
    MacDonald > Clark

  22. Straight Shooter

    May 10, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    Why would melb risk Gawn there gonna win regardless give him the weekend off an let Jackson find some form. Might not be good for fantasy but for melb think it’s a no brainer.

    • pendles4brownlow

      May 10, 2022 at 11:32 pm

      Bugger Melbourne. It is not good for Fantasy, so he must play.

  23. Cedric

    May 11, 2022 at 2:19 am

    My Team:

    D: Houston, Whitfield, Hewett, Sicily, Rich, N. Daicos (O’Driscoll, Stein)

    M: Macrae, Neale, Oliver, Mitchell, M. Crouch, Rowell, Hobbs, McComb (Stephens, Caroll)

    R: Gawn, Witts (Preuss)

    F: Treloar, Coniglio, Brodie, Butters, N. Martin, Rachele (Durdin, Windhager)

    U: S. Hayes

    Over 600k in bank.

    I’m thinking I definitely need to get G Clark this week and can’t think of what to do for 2nd trade.

    Rowell to G Clark
    For the 2nd trade, should I go one of the 4 mid rooks for Petracca or I was thinking Rachele for Mitch Duncan.

    Any other suggestions???

    Second option without a doubt!

  26. LJB

    May 11, 2022 at 11:15 am

    I’m not convinced super Hewey will be back this week so I’ll likely upgrade him. Trying to decide best option from: S. Docherty, J. Dawson, D. Zorko, T. Stewart?

    • Straight shooter

      May 11, 2022 at 7:58 pm

      If Duncan plays back will hurt Stewart zorko can be elite but comes with risk Dawson not top 6 but should be solid Doc is the safe pick imo

  28. Lyndon Caspa

    May 11, 2022 at 11:43 am

    Hey guys would appreciate some advice on trades this week!

    Def: crisp, short, Whitfield, Hewitt, d rioli, bowey
    Bench: nod, SDK

    Mid: Neale, mills, J Kelly, P Cripps, n Anderson, Newcombe, n daicos, will Brodie
    Bench: McComb, mcinnis and ward (utility

    Ruck: pruess, Hayes
    Bench: t English

    Forward: Dunkley, coniglio, butters, rozee, Darcy Cameron, n Martin
    Bench: winhager, X Terri

    Have $328k left over in bank

    Was thinking bowey to Clark and move daicos into defence

    And coniglio to Sean Darcy and move Tim English into forward

    Will leave me with $660k to upgrade non playing rookies next week, or is that to much?


    • LJB

      May 11, 2022 at 12:01 pm

      Cut your losses and get rid of English if he’s out again this week. Missed 3 in a row already!

      May 11, 2022 at 8:00 pm

      I’d cut Butters before Cogs

  29. AD

    May 11, 2022 at 11:49 am

    1. Lipinski -> Oliver (before he rises again), 35k and PaddyMc onfield for a few weeks
    2. McInnes/McEntee-> green bench dot, $350k and NOD onfield
    Hey lads love reading everyone’s plans. Obviously it depends on the rest of my team but its a decision of fixing up red dots or making a big play for a premo who will have a big few weeks. Only playing for a league win/dont care about byes.

  30. Jacob

    May 11, 2022 at 12:56 pm

    Suggested Trades: remaining salary 4k

    Backs: J Short, S Docherty, J Sicily, L Whitfield, N Daicos, K Coleman

    Mids: Andrew Brayshaw, L Neale, B Keays, J Macrae, T Miller, L Parker, J Newcombe, N O’Driscoll

    • AD

      May 11, 2022 at 2:37 pm

      Nice, I’d target some value rookies who will bring in cash gen and ditch guys like McEntee, Mead, Owens.

  31. Goatus

    May 11, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    What would you do? You’ve got enough cash to bump cogs to oliver (but you lose your last mid/fwd in your midfield) OR ditch luke ryan for dawson whi still has some value to be made?

    • John1

      May 12, 2022 at 9:34 am

      I always value at least 1 mid/fwd and 1 mid/def in the midfield pretty highly, especially with byes coming up

  32. Jono

    May 12, 2022 at 9:56 am

    If you could trade butters or daicos to get any premo you want, who would you trade and who would you hold

    • John1

      May 12, 2022 at 10:53 am

      trade butters, keep daicos. Daicos has been pretty good and should hold his value imo, butters seems to have lost his spot in the midfield lately and has been putting up crap scores.
      Personally im aiming to trade out daicos at his bye as long as he doesnt get rested before that

      • Trevor

        May 12, 2022 at 12:09 pm

        He is playing the kangas this week so every chance he will bounce back and get a roll through the midfield. You will regret it even just for one more week.

        • John1

          May 12, 2022 at 6:13 pm

          doesnt matter id still rather hold daicos than butters. There is a case for butters but an even stronger one for daicos

    May 12, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Thanks John…also as a bench option Carroll or M.Rioli which has better JS …Cheers

  35. brian Smith

    May 12, 2022 at 9:18 pm

    After trades I still have Butters & Rozee (both should get something semi-respectable vs NM), and I have the usual rookies: McComb, Clark, Durdin, Maurice Rioli.
    I need to put two of this lot onto the field.
    I’m leaning towards Butters & Clark. Or do I trust Rozee?

  36. Max

    May 12, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    What are peoples thoughts on Sam Berry? Is named on ball. Or do I just go down to someone like Rioli/Hamilton/Begg?

  37. Scott

    May 13, 2022 at 2:46 pm

    JHF to Clark and Z. Williams to Oliver?
    JHF to Clark and NOD to D. Cameron (leaving Oliver to next week)? Miss potential 140 from Oliver but maybe get 100 from Cameron and save $380K
