      Milera down to a rookie (Greg Clark if possible). Then either SDK, Dixon or Rioli up to a premium or value option. Darcy Cameron is a good value FWD atm.

      • WhoElse

        May 17, 2022 at 7:47 pm

        I can’t swap Milera to Clark any other defender you would suggest

      • WhoElse

        May 17, 2022 at 7:53 pm

        I can do Milera to Cleary and Dixon to D Cameron

    • Anthony

      May 17, 2022 at 2:21 pm

      Hamling is no where near a freo return, and so is valente, can you go those two to cleary & khamis?

    • Dulcify

      May 17, 2022 at 9:25 pm

      Valente retired prior to the start of the season, why do you still have him?
      Try this, trade Hamling, move Dawson to defence, trade in Clark. Trade Milera for a playing mid you can afford and move Valente to utility.
      Hope this helps a little, good luck.

      • WhoElse

        May 17, 2022 at 9:32 pm

        Didn’t know that thanks, Milera is a defender and I can’t put valente as utility

        • Dulcify

          May 17, 2022 at 10:20 pm

          It doesn’t matter that Milera is a defender. If you trade him out you can trade in a player from any position as long as Milera is in the utility position.

          • WhoElse

          • WhoElse

            May 17, 2022 at 11:09 pm

            Another quick question is it best to trade in a premium and a rookie each time or doesn’t it matter, thanks in advance

            Thoughts on Milera to G Clark and Hamling to Cleary or Milera to Cleary and Dixon to D Cameron

            • pendles4brownlow

              May 18, 2022 at 6:43 am

              Clark will still make a lot of money, so that is ok. His break even (BE) is -20, so he will go up in value for a while yet. Cleary’s BE is -2, so he will go up as well. These are probably your two best trades to make, because you will be getting rid of non-playing bench rooks, and bringing in guys who will play and go up in value. Milera to Cleary and Dixon to Cameron is also OK, as Cameron’s BE is 28, which is well below what he will score, so he will go up in value. Dixon has been playing at times, but his BE is close to his average, so he won’t go up much more.

              It is best to trade in a premium and a rookie, but many times that is not possible. Sometimes, the downgrading trade cannot get you enough money to get to a premium, so it’s best to do a double downgrade so you can get enough to get to a premium the next week. That is usually better than trading to a mid-pricer, unless that mid-pricer is someone who has changed roles, or for some reason has started scoring at a greater rate. That’s the case with Cameron right now, because he has stepped up in the absence of Grundy, or the likes of Cripps earlier in the year, who started at a discounted rate due to an injury-interrupted year the previous season. Some weeks, you cannot do the downgrade, upgrade due to injuries, the need to get rid of multiple rooks who have peaked in price or not playing anymore, to kickstart important cash generation by bringing in a new gun rook (like Clark). Some weeks when you have a lot of money, you may be lucky enough to do a double up-grade, which may be possible the week after a double downgrade. In the end, it is a game about getting the highest score, so generating a lot of cash growth by getting the best rooks will enable you to buy the best players to give the highest score.

              Next year, in the pre-season (from January or so), jump on this site regularly, and read all the banter about the best rookies and premiums to start with. It is a good way to get the best start to the season. The general aim is to start with a vanilla team (one that is similar to everyone else), but throw in a couple (not too many) of unique players that you believe will step up (points of difference PODs). Obviously, you started this year with some players who have not played. These players do not make you any money. At the start of the year you need to try to get 30 green dots, so that you know the players are at least going to play round 1. Players like Milera were popular in the preseason chat, but when he was not picked round 1, everyone jumped off that train. Some Fantasy players, leading into round 1, wrote about keeping a non-player to get the loophole. Ignore these comments, because if you select a red dot deliberately, you may be left to wait a long time for them to play, if they play at all. You should only aim to use the captain loophole when you are forced to have a red dot on the bench, which will happen as rooks get rested in their first year. In this case, you would not have had Milera and Valente in your team at all, as they would not have been making money in round 1.

              I invest in Fantasy Coach each year, as the site will then tell you a player’s BE, and other useful info. You can probably get this info from reading on sites like this (and others).

              Each week, jump on this site to join in the banter, ask advice, and cherry pick the good ideas from the bad that are brought up in the comments. Every Sunday night, or Monday, jump on to vent and scream FMDT, and list your rage trades. Hopefully, by the start of the next game, you have calmed down enough to reverse those trades and make a rational decision. It’s all part of the fun of AFL Fantasy.

    hey lads i got 1.69m to play with after getting rid of butters and steele. im thinking b.crouch/cripps. any thoughts?

    • pendles4brownlow

      May 18, 2022 at 6:49 am

      It’s getting late for Cripps. His BE is now 106, which he will get most weeks, but he is no longer the value pick. He is a great player, so you can bring him in as a premium – the risk is that he generally drops off once he tires from carrying the Blues all season and realises that they are still crap. Brouch should do ok with Steele out.

  3. Andy

    May 17, 2022 at 3:27 pm

    This week – should I trade out Mead (not playing but not losing cash, loop option) or Dixon (playing most weeks but breakeven getting a bit high for him to match, will start losing cash)?

    • Jake

      May 17, 2022 at 8:59 pm

      tough depending on your other trade, if you need the cash for Dixon out take it – he won’t give you much more than he is over the byes regardless

    • pendles4brownlow

      May 18, 2022 at 6:51 am

      With the byes coming up, Mead’s spot would be useful to bring in someone who will play in round 12 to cover for your players out due to the bye. Dixon has a round 13 bye, so hopefully he will at least provide a few points to cover a potential donut.

      • Andy

        May 18, 2022 at 8:55 am

    Hey guys, need a bit of help with my trades, any advice is helpful :)

    DEF: Short, Sinclair, Whitfield, Hewett, Sicily, NOD (SDK, Boyd)
    MID: Brayshaw, Mills, Petracca, Neale, Cripps, Brodie, Daicos, G Clark (Hobbs, McComb)
    RUC: Gawn, Preuss (S Hayes)
    FWD: Dunkley, Heeney, Cogs, Cameron, Butters, Martin (Rosas, Baldwin)
    UTL: Dixon

    241k in bank


    NOD —-> Cleary/ Khamis,
    Daicos ——> Touk
    Which would mean fielding Cleary


    NOD ——> Knevitt/ other cheap rookie Mid/Fwd
    Daicos ——> Crisp
    Which would mean fielding Hobbs or Mcomb

    • Jake

      May 17, 2022 at 9:05 pm

      field Cleary and loop SDK – you’d take a 60.

    • pendles4brownlow

      May 18, 2022 at 6:59 am

      Cleary/Khamis probably have better JS than Knevitt, who will probably get dropped this week. Watch the selections. Touk offers a bit of value at present. All three rooks that you may have to field amount to a toss of the coin as to which one will score the most – Hobbs probably has the harder task against Richmond, while Cleary and McComb play the Suns. I still think your first trade is better.

      • Angus

        May 18, 2022 at 8:21 am

  6. GDT

    May 17, 2022 at 4:58 pm

    Thoughts on Treloar? Where does he sit in the top forwards conversation. Tossing up between him & Taranto, but favouring Treloar with little confidence.

    • Mike

      May 17, 2022 at 11:17 pm

      I second your lack of confidence in Treloar.
      I have just as little confidence in Taranto.

      • pendles4brownlow

        May 18, 2022 at 7:06 am

        The only thing Treloar has in his favour is his BE of 78, but with the way he has been playing, he is just as likely to miss that 78. Against Essendon, who aren’t the most difficult to score against, he got 78. Taranto started well and dropped off but has only had one score under 89. Both are still likely to be top 6 fwds by the end of the year though. But hard to be confident in them, as there is little consistency.

        • GDT

          May 18, 2022 at 9:18 am

          Thanks for the replies guys, though I’m still no more certain of what to do!

          • pendles4brownlow

            May 18, 2022 at 12:05 pm

            Without knowing your team, it is hard to tell. Unfortunately, all players in Def and Fwd have been very inconsistent. It is difficult to just say Treloar or Taranto will score better, as there is little evidence to say they will be consistent, but I do believe that Taranto is the better option of the two and they will both be top 6 Fwds by the end of the year. Personally, I have concentrated on my Mids, I have only 2 rooks on field (Cleary in Def and Clark in Mid), and I have Cripps as my M7, so my Mids are almost fixed up. My plan will be to get Mills or Keays into my team to fill up my Mids by the end of the byes. Then I will try to fix up the Fwd and Def lines, which are difficult because I don’t trust anyone in those lines absolutely.

            • GDT

              May 18, 2022 at 12:21 pm

              Thanks for the detailed response. Likewise have Clark as only rookie onfield in mids. Defence ok, just looking to strengthen forwards a bit. Taranto has actually been reasonably consistent around the 90 mark each week, so taking a punt on him.

              Thanks again.

  7. Mike

    May 17, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Nice team. I too reckon Butters should be jettisoned. His lows are.. yeah.

    • Lewie-14

      Thinking possibly Butters & Daicos/Coleman out first, need a premo defender like Hewett,Dawson

  9. Jake

    May 17, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    My first week with absolutely no idea what to settle on. Injury creates opportunity with Steele, but not sure whether to say goodbye to Butters (who’s sitting in my mids) as well to grab Kelly/Cripps or Mills/Serong, or boot a non-playing rook like Stein or Skinner and grab Cleary with some money in the bank. Bye players relatively even but wouldn’t mind trending towards more R14 players. What would you do?

    MID: Neale,Oliver,Steele,Macrae,Hewett,Butters,Martin,Clark (McComb,McDonald)

    • brian Smith

      May 18, 2022 at 3:26 am

      Steele first obviously. To Cripps, Mills or Trac. Then it is a toss up between fixing Butters before he loses more cash or fixing a dud-rookie. I think I’ve read that McDonald is not best 22, likewise Stein. Can you do one of those to Cleary? Cox Butters is on the R12 bye, I’d prob do that first.

  10. Busy boy

    May 17, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    Can get any middle bye player, im thinking of ranking them BSmith Laird Mills, am I mad? Just look at instant reward for Smith.

  11. FreemTheDream

    May 17, 2022 at 10:12 pm

    Looking for some help thanks fellas. Only 2 rookies I still have on field are Clark in mids and DeKoning in defence.
    Unfortunately if I trade McComb to Soligo, I only have enough cash to get DeKoning to up to a 740k defender (whom I need to have the round 14 bye) and there really isn’t any options around that price I like.
    Though if I go Coniglio down to S.Berry I can get DeKoning up to Brayshaw for Melbourne, can’t quite get Sicily or Zorko…
    Is this the move, as if anything, after coniglios bye round 12, I could likely pick him back up for a similar price to what he is at now, if he does infact get up to a 95+ average, which I am unsure on regardless of position changes..

    Thanks in advance lads.

  12. brian Smith

    May 18, 2022 at 3:31 am

    McComb still going up in value, worth holding if you can. Any other red dots to go first? For R14, Impey or Aish might be short term options if there’s nothing else. Should easily get more than SdK.

    • pendles4brownlow

      May 18, 2022 at 1:07 pm

      Not to bad, but late to clean up now, but good time to learn for the rest of the year and then hit 2023 with a bang. Gould has been leading us all on since forever – I think it’s his third year, and we have all had him our team at the start of the previous couple. But he is yet to debut. The Swannies keep teasing us by making him an emergency or putting him on an extended bench for Sunday games. I am beginning to wonder if he really exists.

      The only issue with Hamilton is that he has the round 9 bye, but your team is not too heavy on round 12 bye players, so you are lucky. However, by round 12, you need to make sure that all your players on the bench are playing, so you can cover for players who have the bye.

      With that cash in the bank you can almost get away with a double upgrade – Young > Witherden or Zorko and Daicos to Brayshaw or Touk

    Cleary or Khamis, see a lot for Cleary, is his job security any better than Khamis, is there a chance they would swing Khamis back if he drops off, thinking of one or the other for DT.
