can you hold whitfield if you have daicos for cover?
May 20, 2022 at 10:21 am
Nah. I’m not doing it. It’s Sh*tfield ffs.
May 20, 2022 at 3:52 pm
Whitfield will return to his beastly form if they play him in the right position off halfback. But we dont know how long he is out for. So id trade him now
May 20, 2022 at 4:20 pm
He is only out for a week with ankle soreness, if it was anymore of an injury then they would of assessed that during the week after last weeks game. I’m holding, be nuts to trade him. Have a think about it hey
May 19, 2022 at 9:16 pm
help on trades pls:
Trade 1 –> Swapping Steele and O’Driscoll for Laird and Cleary (Means keeping Whitfield in team. Can move someone like J.Mcinerney back to defence and playing McComb/Hobbs on field)
Trade 2 –> Steele and Whitfield for Wines and Zorko (Means I have to save O’driscoll downgrade for following week).
Both options work fine for bye structure btw
May 19, 2022 at 10:35 pm
Some help thanks fellas,
I have 281k in the bank, first move is Whitfield to Sicily. The money left only really gets me up to a Budarik or Coleman at d6, with upgrading Dekoning.
Do I play the breakeven game and possibly 10-20 more points with budarik, knowing he will be a placeholder only until next week where I will be able to upgrade him to a premo. Or do I simply get a red dot off the bench in McInnes for Cleary (onfield for the week) and hold the money to upgrade DeKoning to a premo next week?
Budarik should go up by close to 40k again this week making it a nice little 1 week cash grab
Thanks in advance legends
May 20, 2022 at 3:50 am
I’m holding Whitfield most likely. Can sideways him this week, which leaves a rookie on the field somewhere else, or upgrade a rookie to a premium this week.
Either way it’s a premium in and a rookie on field, but holding means being a trade ahead in team completion.
If he misses next week too, so what. Means he’ll come back after 2 weeks.plus the bye off and be cherry ripe fresh. His injury has 0 impact on bye structure too. Upgrading a rookie this week still negates the score loss of having Whitfield on the bench next week.
Better to be a week ahead on upgrades.
May 20, 2022 at 4:06 am
His price wont fluctuate until after round 13 at the soonest anyway if he does miss next week, which makes trading him out and then hop scotching for a quick cash grab over the byes pointless too. The r14 bye defenders are guys like Zorko, Crisp, Sicdawg etc, and trading them down to Whitfield would be proper Van Gogh level madness.
As we’ve seen, it doesn’t take much carnage at all to be faced with a scenario where we can’t get Zorks/Crispy/Sicdawg etc back in until r16-17. Fk that nightmare right off thanks.
May 20, 2022 at 4:03 am
Chances of Crisp being a late out?
May 20, 2022 at 4:08 am
Pies have been pretty reliable with crook players all playing. Daicos, de Goey and a few others have all been sick and played.
Not worth ending the streak for a sniffle.
May 20, 2022 at 9:14 am
Is it worth going the risk in Sinclair who maybe average 100-110+ with Steele out
Go with the safe option in dawson who will definitely average 100+
May 20, 2022 at 9:34 am
I’m also tossing up between Sinclair and Brayshaw under 785K
May 20, 2022 at 9:36 am
I’ve got both and they are a similar risk.
Expecting an uptick in Sinclair’s scoring though.
There are no safe options. Only FMDT moments.
May 20, 2022 at 9:45 am
I’ve had Sinclair for a while now and i would suggest he is as safe an option as Dawson.
That said i think Dawson and Sinclair will be top 8 defenders EOY
May 20, 2022 at 11:13 am
Lloyd or Sinclar?
May 20, 2022 at 8:04 pm
I’ve got Sinclair, I’d take him now. Especially as Steele is kaput. Keeper now.
Lloyd is cheap though, but not looking likely as a keeper.
May 20, 2022 at 11:34 am
What’s the suggested amount of players to have on bye each round?
May 20, 2022 at 12:16 pm
8 10 12 but I am going players on field and going 7 7 8
May 20, 2022 at 12:25 pm
Took a bit of effort to sort my team.
Cheers to all, lots of helpful info.
Had to trade Steele and Sh*tfield
In comes Zorko and Treloar
I have two handy red dots. Mead, Hamilton.
Captain’s score will be important this week.
I’m going to VC Macrae via Hamilton.
If need, C on Trac next match.
Short Daw Zork
Sicdog Sinclair Daicos
( Gib, SDK E)
Neale Touk Trac Macrae
Cripps Rowell Clark….. MEAD
Emergency on Carroll tonight.. if he’s spuds it,
second swing with MacComb via Mead.
Gawn Preuss (Williams)
Dunkley Parker Treloar
Duncan Brodie… HAMILTON.
(Martin (E), Dixon)
May 20, 2022 at 12:40 pm
* Maybe I’m supposed to use Rachele as a second swinger instead of McComb.
But he really really sucks. He’s like a cancer in my team that I can’t get rid of.
He’ll probably score 100+ now. FMDT. Nah..
May 20, 2022 at 12:38 pm
Zorko and doc
Petracca and Angus Bradshaw?
Was thinking J.Kelly but heavy rain in Perth has me worried…
May 20, 2022 at 1:13 pm
Is brayshaw good because Salem is out?
May 20, 2022 at 12:47 pm
I’d rather Zorko & Trac.
May 20, 2022 at 1:42 pm
1. NOD to Budarick (D6) +40k
2. NOD to Cleary/Khamis (D6) +290k/270k
Option 2 means I have to play the rookie at D6 this round unfortunately. Budarick a massive risk though.
May 20, 2022 at 7:57 pm
So, a new coach @ GWS.
Toby is named in a pocket again..
Why not give him 100 minutes in the midfield for a change up? For the rest of the year.
Hunt the ball Toby..
You love a goal too.. I’ll put you F6.
May 20, 2022 at 9:25 pm
Swans @ the half..
Kind of explains why I rarely pick Swans.
The only Swan I have is Parker @ F2
He just got another 4 points added too.
Can he sustain this scoring rate a little longer?
Not likely, because… FMDT.
Cripps is cruising along not needed much.
May 20, 2022 at 9:28 pm
And 3 more points for Parker during the break.
He’s scoring at a fair clip even off the field.
