The Season

Weekend Forecast – Round 11

Bails’ fantastic Friday read is here to help you get set for the weekend.

***Live stream of the Weekend Forecast will be on my YouTube channel. Make sure to tune in as I will be answering your questions during the live stream. Also, feel free to subscribe to my YouTube channel and leave a like on the video. Would be very much appreciated.***

Carnage yet again for many coaches at team selection, but Round 11 is our final round before we enter the bye round section of the season, with rounds 12 through to 14 having 6 teams on bye each week, thus meaning our best 18 scorers each week will contribute to our score. We have 5 trades before the start of these bye rounds so trading is of the utmost importance, and you can’t waste a trade through this period. However, Bailey Smith was named out with illness, Braydon Preuss was not named, and coaches who held on to Whitfield and Taranto will have much more to think about this week, with the Giants duo both missing again through their respective injuries.

Now, lets get into the Weekend Forecast.

 

Sydney vs Richmond @ SCG

Weather Forecast

Around 18°C, clear

Team Lineups

Sydney

IN

James Rowbottom, Matt Roberts, Sam Reid

OUT

James Bell (Omitted), Tom Hickey (Injured), Josh Kennedy (Injured), Colin O’Riordan (Omitted)

Richmond

IN

Jack Graham, Marlion Pickett

OUT

Tom Lynch (Injured), Jake Aarts (Omitted), Kane Lambert (Injured)

 

Players to Watch

Jayden Short

Still continuing to play his role split between defence and midfield. 113 last week was a good score, a little bit tougher this week against Sydney at the SCG, but he should be good once again.

Callum Mills

Great captain this week, but the beauty of it is he is an amazing VC option if you have the luxury of VC loopholing him. Richmond do give up points, as shown by Parish (146) last week. Could be massive this week.

Isaac Heeney

Played a decent amount of midfield last week, attending 15 CBA’s (48.4%). That could have been due to Rowbottom being out, but as an owner myself, I hope this is not the case and he does infact, from here on in, get that midfield time that was talked about in the preseason.

Other players to watch: Paddy McCartin, Dustin Martin, Jake Lloyd, Luke Parker, Matt Roberts, Nick Vlastuin, Peter Ladhams

Brisbane vs GWS @ The Gabba

Weather Forecast

Around 24°C, sunny

Team Lineups

Brisbane

IN

Daniel McStay, Deven Robertson, Marcus Adams

OUT

Jack Payne (Omitted), Tom Fullarton (Omitted), Hugh McCluggage (Injured), Mitch Robinson (Medi-Sub)

GWS

IN

Lachlan Keefe, Lachie Ash

OUT

Jake Stein (Medi-Sub), Adam Kennedy (Illness), Xavier O’Halloran (Omitted)

 

Players to Watch

Jacob Wehr

We have a couple of good rookie options this week, with one of them being Jacob Wehr. If you don’t need to get a defender rookie, I would grab Jake Soligo and Cooper Stephens over him, in that order. I would watch Wehr this week, and if he holds his spot and plays round 13 after his bye, I would grab him then. If you are looking for a defender rookie, I would grab him as I think he will play after the bye.

Jarryd Lyons

An underpriced option to look at in midfield. Scored a season high 129 last week, albeit against Hawthorn, but with McCluggage out, he should be in a full time midfield role this week, but even with McCluggage being injured in the last quarter against the Hawks, Lyons was still in the guts before that. Down 151k and someone to consider, especially with the round 14 bye.

Stephen Coniglio

Looked back to the Stephen Coniglio of old last week, back playing his midfield role. He attended 22 CBA’s (59.5%) and should be back in that role for the forseeable future. For owners, they would be all very happy but as for a trade target, I would want to see him this week, then consider after his round 12 bye.

Other players to watch: Daniel Rich, Dayne Zorko, Harry Perryman, Josh Kelly, Jacob Wehr, Lachie Neale, Keidean Coleman

 

Geelong vs Adelaide @ GMHBA Stadium

Weather Forecast

Around 14°C, partly cloudy

Team Lineups

Geelong

IN

 

OUT

Patrick Dangerfield (Injured)

Adelaide

IN

Reilly O’Brien, Jordon Butts, Matt Crouch, Wayne Milera

OUT

Taylor Walker (HS Protocols), Kieran Strachan (Omitted), Lachlan Sholl (Medi-Sub), Josh Rachele (Managed), Chayce Jones (Omitted)

 

Players to Watch

Jordan Dawson

Looked to be in for an average score, but showed why he looks everything like a top 6 defender. Scored 73 points in the 2nd half with a score of 111. Tough game against Geelong in Geelong, but still a great target with a high floor, and the Crows run after their bye looks really tasty.

Jake Soligo

The no.1 rookie option this week. Backed up the 59 he scored in round 9 with a 77, from 87% game time which was great to see. Should be in Adelaide’s team past their bye, and could be the for the rest of the year so jump on this week.

Cam Guthrie

An underpriced option a few people are looking at after a season high 114 last week. He has now gone 100+ in 4 of his last 5 games, and with Dangerfield being out, that means more points for Guthrie, as he normally scores more when Danger is out.

Other players to watch: Tom Stewart, Sam De Koning, Mitch Duncan, Cooper Stephens, Ben Keays, Reilly O’Brien, Rory Laird, Matt Crouch

 

Melbourne vs Fremantle @ MCG

Weather Forecast

Around 15°C, sunshine and clouds mixed

Team Lineups

Melbourne

IN

Jack Viney

OUT

Luke Dunstan (Omitted), Ed Langdon (Injured)

Fremantle

IN

Brandon Walker, Darcy Tucker

OUT

Neil Erasmus (Medi-Sub), Sam Switkowski (Suspension), Bailey Banfield (Omitted)

 

Players to Watch

Clayton Oliver

Went huge last week with a 151, which consisted of 45 disposals, 5 marks and 6 tackles. Really expensive now at 936k, but if you are keen on him and you need a round 14 bye player, he is one of the top options.

Christian Petracca

Thats now four 110+ scores in a row, and 5 of his last 6 over 110. Just continues to get it done each and every week for his owners. A great target still with many coaches struggling with round 14 bye players, and should be good once again this week, even against a tougher Fremantle midfield.

Will Brodie

After many people thought about trading him after his 62 against Geelong in round 7, he has followed that up with 3 tons in a row, including a season high score of 128 against Collingwood last week. Even though he is still only getting 65%-70% game time, it doesn’t matter, as he is still avergaing over 95 for the season. Looks like a hold past his round 14 bye.

Other players to watch: Angus Brayshaw, Andrew Brayshaw, Max Gawn, Sean Darcy, Caleb Serong

 

West Coast vs Western Bulldogs @ Optus Stadium

Weather Forecast

Around 18°C, clear

Team Lineups

West Coast

IN

Josh Kennedy, Sam Petrevski-Seton

OUT

Josh Rotham (Omitted), Hugh Dixon (Omitted), Patrick Naish (Omitted)

Western Bulldogs

IN

Tim English, Taylor Duryea, Cody Weightman

OUT

Bailey Smith (Illness), Luke Cleary (Omitted), Roarke Smith (Medi-Sub), Zaine Cordy (Omitted)

 

Players to Watch

Greg Clark

Saved his score in the 2nd half by getting to 61. With West Coast getting some players back over the next couple of weeks, maybe his scores will be much like his last 2 weeks compared to his 110 on debut. Still making good cash, but if there is a move where you can move him to your bench, then that is definitely a play.

Marcus Bontempelli

Looks all but confirmed to get forward status, as he is currently sitting at 39% forward for the season (35% is the threshold to gain DPP). One of the best targets this week, with potential instant reward against West Coast and will get his DPP once this round is finished.

Bailey Smith

I don’t normally write about players not playing, but I thought I would include Bailey Smith here. Baz has been ruled out with illness, but is set to gain FWD status before next round as he is over the threshold of 35% (currently sitting around 38% FWD). I am an owner and will be holding as he will be back next week, and a valuable commodity for the rest of the season as he will a top 3 forward, and potentially be the no.1 scoring forward.

Other players to watch: Alex Witherden, Buku Khamis, Jack Macrae, Caleb Daniel, Bailey Dale, Isiah Winder, Callum Jamieson, Tim English, Josh Dunkley, Adam Treloar, Brady Hough, Robbie McComb

 

Gold Coast vs Hawthorn @ TIO Stadium

Weather Forecast

Around 27°C, clear (65% humidity)

Team Lineups

Gold Coast

IN

Alex Davies, Caleb Graham, Jeremy Sharp

OUT

Rory Thompson (Injured), Brayden Fiorini (Omitted), Sean Lemmens (HS Protocols), Jy Farrar (Injured)

Hawthorn

IN

Connor Macdonald, Jack Scrimshaw

OUT

Max Lynch (Injured), Kyle Hartigan (Medi-Sub), Jaeger O’Meara (Injured)

 

Players to Watch

Tom Mitchell

Is the Pig back? That is the question on everyones lips this week after a season high score of 120 against Brisbane. Only attended 18 CBA’s (48.6%), which is his 2nd lowest for the season, but from the eye test after watching this game, he was pushing right up into the midfield contest every time he started forward, so I don’t see the lack of CBA’s as much of  a problem. Priced at 795k, I think he is certainly an option to look at, especially as he has the round 14 bye.

Touk Miller

Has been quite up and down this season, shown by the fact he scored 128 against Fremantle in round 9, then followed it up with an 82 against the Bulldogs, mind you it was in Ballarat against a very tough opposition. I would trade him in this week, instead watch him over the next 2 weeks, then maybe target him after his round 13 bye.

Jarrod Witts

With all of the ruck chaos this week, people are looking to move Preuss to a premium ruck, and I think Jarrod Witts is the best option, and a great option. Up against Hawthorn this week who don’t have a ruck, and it is at TIO Stadium, with potentially more chance for hitouts.

Other players to watch: Sam Butler, Noah Anderson, Joel Jeffrey, James Sicily

 

St Kilda vs North Melbourne @ Marvel Stadium

Weather Forecast

***Roof Closed***

Team Lineups

St Kilda

IN

Mitch Owens, Dan Butler, Jarrod Lienert

OUT

 

North Melbourne

IN

Jack Mahony, Jaidyn Stephenson, Jackson Archer

OUT

 

 

Players to Watch

Jack Sinclair

Just continues to get it done every week, with another score of 111 against Adelaide last week. Has the round 12 bye which could be tricky for some coaches, but is a great target after that, with only 2 scores under 90 all season (80, 84). Is in the mix with the top 6 defenders.

Luke Davies-Uniacke

If your are looking for a round 14 bye player that could get you through to the round 14 bye, I think LDU could be an option. Priced at 649k, and last 3 scores of 81, 100 and 103, you could look at it. I personally wouldn’t do it, but if you couldn’t afford anyone above 700k, you could do a lot worse than LDU.

Jed Anderson

Now down at 670k as a forward, I think we need to keep an eye of Jed Anderson over the next few weeks. Back to back scores of 72 and 83 aren’t great, but looks to be playing a little bit more midfield, and still on limited game time as he works his way to full fitness. He may not become on option, but just a name to keep on your watchlist.

Other players to watch: Jason Horne-Francis, Marcus Windhager, Rowan Marshall, Jade Gresham, Brad Crouch

 

Collingwood vs Carlton @ MCG

Weather Forecast

Around 16°C, partly cloudy

Team Lineups

Collingwood

IN

Reef McInnes, Caleb Poulter, Trey Ruscoe

OUT

 

Carlton

IN

Jack Newnes, Jack Martin, Jordan Boyd, Paddy Dow

OUT

Brodie Kemp (Medi-Sub)

 

Players to Watch

Patrick Cripps

Has struggled the last 2 weeks playing this midfield-ruck role, with back to back scores of 76 and 71 worry a few coaches.  Hopefully we see Silvagni play that R2 role more around the ground meaning Crippa will be fine, but coaches will be worried if things don’t change this week.

Darcy Cameron

After hearing Mason Cox was going to be playing as the main ruck, many coaches were worried about what Cameron would end up scoring. A finger injury to Cox in the first quarter opened the door for Cameron to play as the main ruck, and boy did he deliver. Filled up the stat sheet with only 12 disposals, but had 7 marks, 8 tackles and 22 hitouts for 115. All but confirmed to get ruck status next round, which will be helpful for coaches with their R2 flexibility.

Jack Crisp

Even with him being sick all last week, it didn’t stop Crispy from cracking the ton again, scoring a 104 with less CBA’s. That’s now 6 of his last 7 games over 100, and the one game he didn’t, he scored 99. Should be great yet again against Carlton on Sunday, and back to his usual midfield role.

Other players to watch: Corey Durdin, Sam Walsh, Jordan De Goey, Sam Docherty, Taylor Adams, George Hewett, Nick Daicos, Jesse Motlop, Jack Carroll

Port Adelaide vs Essendon @ Adelaide Oval

Weather Forecast

Around 19°C, cloudy with periods of light rain (87% chance of rain)

Team Lineups

Port Adelaide

IN

Jed McEntee, Riley Bonner, Charlie Dixon

OUT

 

Essendon

IN

Andrew Phillips, Brandon Zerk-Thatcher, Jordan Ridley, Brayden Ham, Harrison Jones, Jye Caldwell

OUT

Nick Bryan (Omitted), Matt Guelfi (Injured), Mason Redman (Suspension)

 

Players to Watch

Zach Merrett

After a disgusting 51 in round 9, Merrett responded with 105, his first ton since round 6. Has been getting less CBA’s the last 2 weeks which is something to watch, but he is a guy to watch this week, as he could be a really good underpriced target after his round 12 bye.

Zak Butters

Has been solid the last 2 weeks, with his 94 last round his highest score since round 5. Good matchup against Essendon, but it is expected to be wet weather so he may not have his high ceiling, meaning owners will be hoping for an 80+.

Nic Martin

Most coaches will not be able to move Nic Martin on this week with all of the carnage going on, but if you can I think it is a good move. This game is expected to be wet, so he could be in for a poor score, and moving him on to an underpriced midfield option like Bont, Wines, Titch, Lyons, etc., is a great play.

Other players to watch: Dan Houston, Ben Hobbs, Darcy Parish, Connor Rozee, Ollie Wines, Travis Boak, Sam Hayes, Tex Wanganeen

 

My Trades

So my trades this week have been quite stressful, as I have all of Lachie Whitfield, Tim Taranto, Bailey Smith and Braydon Preuss out, so I have had to make a few options based on what I can do. These are the 4 options that I will choose from:

Option 1: if Paddy McCartin scores 60+, and Preuss and Sam Hayes are both out. Means I will keep all of Whitfield, Taranto and Bailey Smith

Carroll/Hough -> Soligo

Preuss -> Witts

 

Option 2: if Paddy McCartin scores less than 50, and Preuss and Sam Hayes are both out. Means I will keep Taranto and Bailey Smith

Preuss -> Witts

Whitfield -> Zorko

 

Option 3: if Paddy McCartin scores 60+, and one of Preuss or Sam Hayes are named. Means I will keep all of Whitfield, Taranto and Bailey Smith

Carroll -> Soligo

N Martin -> Wines/Mitchell

 

Option 4: if Paddy McCartin scores less than 50, and one of Preuss or Sam Hayes are named. Means I will keep Taranto and Bailey Smith

Carroll -> Soligo

Whitfield -> Docherty

I will post my final trades on Twitter before the Saturday games start, so stay tuned.

 

Anyway, thanks again everyone for reading the Weekend Forecast. If you have any questions about your starting teams, or anything else, leave your questions in the comments section below or hit me up at my Twitter or Instagram (links provided below).

    HI Bailey,

    Would be interested to hear your thinking around Soligo vs Stephens – similar priced rookies that I’m sure a few people are tossing up this week (myself included).

    I was leaning towards Soligo previously on the basis of his strong fantasy game in juniors, weighed against Geelong’s propensity to cycle youngsters through rather than give them an extended run of games. Now I’m thinking Danger’s injury and the return of Matt Crouch (who’ can’t really play anywhere but in the guts) might tilt the balance in Stephens’ favour.

    • pendles4brownlow

      May 27, 2022 at 5:52 pm

      Who has ESP? I want to know this too. Soligo vs Stephens? Was going to bring in Soligo, but with DangerMouse out, Stephens have better JS.

      • Beady Eye

        May 27, 2022 at 6:13 pm

        Strong as his JS might be, there’s a few flags that have me questioning the Stephens pick: his low TOG (67% and 64%), and lack of tackling (3 across two games) and frees for (1 for vs 3 against).

        Soligo on the other hand has payed 81% and 87% TOG, had 7 tackles across two games, and drawn 6 frees with none against. Just seems to have a more well-rounded fantasy game.

        You couple that with the fact it’s taken Stephens until his third season to start getting games, compared to someone like Knevitt who’s already debuted in his first year, and that when both he and Knevitt played well, he was the one that got dropped.

        If the Crows had a more favourable matchup I’d likely have already traded in Soligo TBH, but the potential for a flogging at the Cattery is putting me off.

        • pendles4brownlow

          May 27, 2022 at 6:21 pm

          Thank you oh beady one. You have given me good enough reason to stick with my original pick of Soligo. They may be in for a flogging at the Cattery, but it may give Soligo more chance to tackle.

        • BestowedMisery

          May 27, 2022 at 8:33 pm

          Fry gave us a heads up about Soligo a week ago.
          V’s cats is of little concern.

    • Bailey

      May 27, 2022 at 7:14 pm

      I would be going Soligo there. I think Soligo has the better job security, and has looked really good on the wing 👍

  2. JT & Frenchy, Gangsta Boyz

    May 27, 2022 at 2:41 pm

    Hey Bailey, Jamieson or Sweet better short term pickup? Thanks dude

    • Bailey

      May 27, 2022 at 7:15 pm

      I would grab Jamieson and have the extra cash ✅

  3. Tobe_Advised

    May 27, 2022 at 3:00 pm

    First time reading the Weekend Forecast. Great segment.

    • Bailey

      May 27, 2022 at 7:15 pm

      Thanks man, appreciate the kind words 👍

  4. Jacko

    May 27, 2022 at 4:10 pm

    Teams have really thrown a spanner in the works.

    Whats the better option out of:

    1) Whitfield > Docherty
    Martin > Soligo

    2) Whitfield > Doch
    Preuss > Jamieson (Cameron to R2 next week)

    3) Whitfield > Wehr
    Martin > Bont

    • Bailey

      May 27, 2022 at 7:16 pm

      I would probably go option 2 and fix the ruck up next week with Cameron

  5. pendles4brownlow

    May 27, 2022 at 5:16 pm

    Carroll out

    • Bailey

      May 27, 2022 at 7:16 pm

      Yep I saw. Another player I have out 🤦‍♂️

  6. Damo

    May 27, 2022 at 5:17 pm

    Bowey -> Coleman (playing breakeven game with Bowey to drop a ton of cash)

    OR

    Ward -> Soligo (fielding Bowey and carrying cash for next week)

    • Bailey

      May 27, 2022 at 7:17 pm

      If you could do Bowey to Soligo I would do that, but if not I would go Ward to Soligo as Ward isn’t playing, whereas Bowey as bad as he has been, is still playing. Upgrade Bowey next week I think is the play

  7. Petez

    May 27, 2022 at 10:02 pm

    I’ve had to change my Plan.
    Bloody Pruess.
    I’ve gone pruess to English.
    Im not convinced on trading him straight back in. But surely against the eagles awful rucks he goes well

    • JungleMuffin

      May 27, 2022 at 10:38 pm

      English not cherry ripe, returning from a long stint out with injury/illness. Not sure he’s the best replacement.

      Sure, WC are bad, but is English in enough form to capitalise on it? Or is going to steuggle for match fitness and puff about/struggle to outlive opponents?

      • Petez

        May 27, 2022 at 11:29 pm

        Yer I agree mate.
        It’s a Worry.
        But im kind of stuck This week.
        I can Cut Clark way to early and durdin a week early to reach Cameron.
        And in the process field callum jamienson

        Or I can trade dead wieght mead to Wehr And Pruess to English.
        English is a keeper and Can swing to my FWD line when I get gawn.
        That or I trade witts out when time comes and keep English there. It gives me options.

        English is Risky straight up but geez the Eagles Rucks are terrible. The Eagles are terrible lol.

        Il sleep on this one lol.

        My 3rd option is I just trade out 2 red dots and play Jamesion this week and wear the points lost

        • Petez

          May 27, 2022 at 11:33 pm

          4th option I toyed with.
          Was to trade mead to neale 190k rook.
          Then go Durdin to S.Berry as midprice gap filler to upgrade in a few weeks.

  8. JungleMuffin

    May 27, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    I wouldn’t be trading Juicy out lads. Nor would I trade Soligo in (Trust me on that one, I’ve done it once already).

    Preuss is probably still rough from being crook last week, and just didn’t get up enough during the week. He’s clearly shown that he’s the first choice ruck for GWS, I think trading him out for anything other than avoiding a donut is a bad decision.

    • Minister for Manila

      May 28, 2022 at 9:35 am

      I won’t be trading Soligo back in either (salty former owner)

  9. Petez

    May 27, 2022 at 10:58 pm

    Geez hope nobody got Roberts…..6 points lol

    • Jay1

      May 28, 2022 at 12:27 am

      will be cheaper after his bye lol

      • Petez

        Haha

  10. FreemTheDream

    May 28, 2022 at 4:06 am

    As usual my trades this week have changed every day. I ended up going Preuss and Carrol down to Jamieson and Rich via DPP.

    Have intentions of using the extra cash to next week go Cleary to Soligo via DPP, Baldwin to anybody hopefully under 210k playing in any position, then N. Martin to the Bont.

    Funny stat though, I could have gotten up to Zorko, and still made next weeks trades work, but these are the points difference from match to match for Zorko this season. And these are going to be the differences in points, regardless of plus or minus, between games 1 and 2 , 2 and 3, 3 and 4 etc..

    Alright..
    113
    39
    62
    65
    53
    49
    27
    20
    30

    Now i know that gets a bit better towards the end, but damn, after seeing the roller coaster of Zorko, im going to go with Rich every day of the week, especially since neither will be top 6, so eventually they become a Docherty or Crisp for me after byes.

    Just a crazy stat i thought i would share

  11. BestowedMisery

    May 28, 2022 at 12:58 pm

    Cheers again for the intel Bailey.
    I’ve got Clark on field at the moment. Could he struggle against the Doggie’s midfield?
    I’m tossing up maybe fielding McComb instead. If he’s ever going to better his 83, it’d be against the Eagles.. He keeps getting a gig regardless of performance.

  12. BestowedMisery

    May 28, 2022 at 1:19 pm

    VC on Trac today. My only midfielder to crack 100 last week.
    Second swing C will be Dunks.

  13. pendles4brownlow

    May 28, 2022 at 4:33 pm

    Why, oh why, did I bring in Zorko? He is the epitome of a spud. I swear he was trying not to catch it or get the ball. The number of times here was near play and lamely reached in. No actual effort to get the ball.

    • Bill

      May 28, 2022 at 5:22 pm

      Yes, not looking like a good move.
      It was a bit like me bringing in Zac Bailey last week…

      This week I brought in Oliver- looking much better.

    • FreemTheDream

      May 28, 2022 at 5:42 pm

      Haha read my post above, this is just who Zorko is. Though my pick of Rich was equally as awful, but I see it more of an outlier game for Rich than Zorko as GWS kicked remarkably accuracies.

      Was hoping for instant reward, looks like I’m going to have to now hope for a bit of delayed gratification…
      Story of my life.

  14. Andy

    May 28, 2022 at 4:40 pm

    Wow huge scores in the cats crows game! Was so considering a VC on Neale too, oh well. Stewart and ROB, far out.

    • Bill

      May 28, 2022 at 5:19 pm

      I have Stewart.
      VC on him would have been good.

      Neale was my C last week, when he did nothing.

      I’ve got my VC on Oliver (looking good at the moment) and C on Dunkley.

  15. Darce

    May 28, 2022 at 5:18 pm

    My only captain loop is McInnes.. praying he doesn’t make the field :/

  16. BestowedMisery

    May 28, 2022 at 5:24 pm

    Trac is not looking like it as VC.
    I’ll have to decide between Dunks, Touk. Cripps..

  17. John1

    May 28, 2022 at 5:28 pm

    I have the option to loop sdk as emergency, would you drop martin, daicos or sdks 83? Going with daicos right now, as he hasnt gone over 83 since round 4, but martins been down the last couple too

    • FreemTheDream

      May 28, 2022 at 5:44 pm

      I personally am taking it over N Martin, as he is going to find it difficult to score big against Port this week at Adelaide oval. I see Daicos going around 80 and Martin around 65.

      • FreemTheDream

        May 28, 2022 at 5:45 pm

        I honestly think 65 this week is right at the top end for Martin this week more likely to be a 45-55

          Yeah I’d be taking SDK too. Can’t loop him tho, too many green dots

          youve convinced me haha, martin benched. If I put him as the utility I can swap him if one of my guys tomorrow mid or forward are a late out so there is still some flexibility too

            Hi John, I’m rather chuffed with my Tim English prediction. Hope you took my advice.💪🔥

    Jake Bowey 54 at half time. Good score coming for the Warne Dogs(lol)

    Should have had a loophole-look at Petracca rather than playing that useless guy directly on my field :(

    Having a really crap week this week. I will be lucky to get over 2000. I am lucky I put Dunk as Captain; otherwise, it would have been much worse. Stressful weekend, after choosing to have Oliver as my VC at the last minute instead of Neale, because I thought Neale would get tagged. I was spewing after watching Brisbane’s game and seeing Neale play. I thought it was not going to matter the way Oliver was playing, but he came to a screeching halt. Thankfully Dunks did come to the party, although I would have liked him repeating his first half score. A little lower than Neale, but not a disaster like the rest of my team. I now wish I had brought English in – under-done, eh? He is a must have. At least I didn’t bring in Trac.

      Originally I was going to bring in English, but bringing in Oliver instead worked well.
      I’ll hold off on English now until after his bye.
      I’m looking at about 2,200 this week.

    I stuck with my initial Gut call and got English in. Had C on dunks. Looks like a solid wknd.
    I’ve still got all my rookies intact plus got wehr in. Glad deadwieght mead gone haha..

    Tracs and Zorko killed me so far thou.
    Hopefully Tracs over whatever illness he had by next week.
    Don’t think Zorko has a excuse haha

    Screwed my weekend up and out of the top 1000. Was around 500. Accidentally put the C an d not VC on Petracca to start with! Zorko as well. De Koning on the bench over McCartin. Hopefully things come good tomorrow. 6 to come, hopefully score around 2,000 after all that. Held Preuss and Taranto.

    Amazingly one of my opponents fielded SDK, had Stewart, kept English all this time, used Neale as captain and strangely traded Bailey Smith to Treloar. My players can be summed up bu Petracca. Doomed!

      probably playing the one who will be the round winner.

    Anyone have any idea of the price rice to expect from English after that 132?
    Thanks in advance.

    • Jay1

      May 29, 2022 at 2:01 am

      Should be in the vicinity of $35-45K

    I have Petracca, but I didn’t take him as vc or c because I’ve been burnt by him before.

    What was his excuse for going so badly this time?

    • BestowedMisery

      May 29, 2022 at 12:52 am

      I I did VC Trac.. chucked the C on Dunks. Phew.
      My team would have been baked..

      He was ill.
      Woke up Saturday morning sick.
      But he chose to play the game

        I’d say that’s rather selfish by Petracca, but then again, the Dees probably had no one to replace him.🤮

    JungleMuffin’s sage advice about not trading in English worked a treat. Similar to their suggestion not to trade in Cameron a month ago..

    Holding English this whole time was frustrating but didn’t he repay those who did.

    May 29, 2022 at 2:23 pm

    N. Daicos or N. Martin on field?

    • BestowedMisery

      May 29, 2022 at 4:06 pm

      Was probably better to field both and bench Cripps..

    Number 1 trade this week: Durdin!
    Cost me at least three of my league games.
    Every time I play that bum he scores badly.

  33. BestowedMisery

    May 29, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Score: 2164..
    Can’t believe I scored ok with a 40 by trac, 35 by Jamison, 49 by Dorko and 52 by Daicos.
    Time to rename my team..
