    Early trades:

    Dayne Zorko to Rory Laird
    Connor Macdonald to Harry Himmelberg
    Mitch Owens to a rookie.


    • BrodieA

      June 13, 2022 at 8:07 pm

      Cant complain with those trades, unless there is another red dot instead of Owens? Hes still a chance to play in the coming weeks

  2. AD

    June 13, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Score 1779. Improved rank from 9k to 7k despite having Owens as my 18th man. Think I’ll be able to cull Butters this week.. Might have to say bye to SDK to improve forwards despite his solid bench cover

  3. BrodieA

    June 13, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Zorko to Whitfield
    Petracca to Laird
    Coleman to Himmelberg

    or Hold Trac and get rid of a red dot elsewhere to bring in Fwd rookie under 300K and possibly bring in a better defender in Doch or Daws

    • BrodieA

      June 13, 2022 at 8:10 pm

      So option 2 would be:
      Zorko to Daws/Doch
      Red dot to Laird
      Coleman to FWD rookie

      • igor

        June 13, 2022 at 8:27 pm

        option 2 makes ur team better

    • Norman

      June 13, 2022 at 9:58 pm

      I’d wait on Whitfield.

      GWS had an extremely high possession match with a LOT of easy uncontested marks which inflated scores (you’re not gonna see himmelberg score 160 every week!)

      So option 2 for me with Doch

  4. JB

    June 13, 2022 at 10:07 pm

    Can bring in one of Super Hewy, Sinclair or Dawson.

    Have a soft spot for Hewy, but is Dawson’s run home too good to ignore? And same could be said of Sinclair’s form.

    • igor

      June 13, 2022 at 11:58 pm

      hew, daw, sinc. in that order.

      cerra out helps, hew consistant, daw run good, players back help positioning and role, sinc players returning may lose potential to points

      • Pill

        June 14, 2022 at 8:17 am

        I would say Sinclair is actually at the top of that list. He’s had a combined 2 CBA’s in the last 3 games when he’s averaged 116 in that time. Steele is also 3 weeks away and wouldn’t change Sinclair’s halfback role.

  5. Mike

    June 13, 2022 at 10:22 pm

    Getting 2 of these guns in the next 3 weeks, round 15 and round 17
    Which order to get in those weeks out of Andrew Brayshaw, Rory Laird, Callum Mills and Clayton Oliver?

    • igor

      June 14, 2022 at 12:02 am

      laird, bray, oliver, mills (in that order)

      mills v port(hardest team+away)
      Laird very nice draw
      Brayshaw (role and hunger)
      Oliver. just a beast (already an owner and laird in this week…plans for bray next week)

  6. Minister for Manila

    June 14, 2022 at 7:10 am

    Who to Trade Out?
    Butters or DeGoey?

  7. The Kid

    June 14, 2022 at 11:20 am

    Is having 5 giants in my team too many?

    It is between Whitfield + cash or Doc for me. What do you guys think?

    • Port Adelaide Piglets

      June 14, 2022 at 11:32 am

      Whitfield is still is a risk as we have only seen one game and that game had some of the highest possession counts we’ve seen all year (himmleburg wont be getting 160s everyweek)

      I love the saftey of doc and the guarantee he will be a top 3 defender for the rest of the year plus a high ceiling. So doc for me.

  8. Port Adelaide Piglets

    June 14, 2022 at 11:28 am

    which is the better combo;
    Whitfield and Hobbs
    Stewart and Durdin

    • brian Smith

      June 14, 2022 at 4:11 pm

      Durdin is bleeding cash hard! B/e went from 48 to 63, last 3 went from 49 to 41. Clarke(RIC) or Davies way better. Or wait for new rookies to be named.

  9. Mark Fawcett

    June 14, 2022 at 12:31 pm

    Team after trades this week of Bailey > Whitfield via DPP, S. Hayes to a 190k rookie & Jeffrey > Angus Brayshaw ready for coming out of the byes. Team will be

    • PowerAde

      June 14, 2022 at 4:09 pm

      with that cash i would sell DeKoning and clark for upgrades, they are close to topping, kelly and doc would be my choice, and maybe durdin for english if you can afford, hobbs to bench, depending on which hayes is ruck bench, if saints i would sell him before durdin, if power you might not have enough.

  11. Bobby Bouchet

    June 14, 2022 at 2:16 pm

    My early trades are:
    JHF, Durdin, Butters to Clarke, English & Duncan.

    I’ll have a likely 18/19 to play this week, but I want to move Butters and Durdin while I can still get something out of them.

    Leaves me coming out of the byes with:
    Short, Crisp, Hewey, Houston, Sicily*, Daicos*, (Wehr, Skinner)
    Mills, Miller, Petracca*, Macrae, Neale*, Cripps, Mitchell*, Hately, (Soligo, Clarke, Owens)
    Gawn*, Cameron*, (Hayes)
    Dunkley, English, Parker, Cogs, Duncan, Brodie*, (Clarke, Callow*)

    *bye this week

  12. Andy

    June 14, 2022 at 2:52 pm

    Considering trading Keays down to Hately for $$, his price rise and even points – the differential is not that much atm.

    • brian Smith

      June 14, 2022 at 4:14 pm

      Keays could be a keeper, Hately is not, so feels like a backward step. If you really want to dump Keays, go to Laird instead.

    R13 Score – 1,747
    Total Points – 26,453

    R13 Rank – 9,927
    Overall Rank – 7,255

    R13 Team (after loopholes)
    J. Crisp – J. Sicily – S. Pendlebury – D. Houston – G. Hewett – J. Wehr (P. Parnel – T. Stewart)
    L. Neale – T. Mitchell – P. Cripps – B. Crouch – C. Oliver – M. Owens – N. Daicos – D.Zorko (J. Macrae – J. Soligo)
    M. Gawn (C) – J. Witts (S. Hayes)
    M. Windhager – – L. Parker – W. Brodie – D. Cameron – S. Coniglio – S. De Koning – J. Dunkley (J. Jeffery – L. Parker)
    (J. Mead)

    R13 Trades
    G. Clark > M. Ownes
    R. McComb > S. Coniglio
    L. Cleary > J. Wehr

    $163k in bank

    Current R14 plan:
    Aiming to be able to field a team of premos/premo-likes once I do my R15 trades, so aiming for upgrading Pendles to Sinclair (or Doch if I can get enough cash), and downgrading Daicos and Mead to have money in the bank for next week. Should hopefully have a team of 20 on field this week.

    Current Bye Structure with no trades
    14 – 17 (1 didn’t play R11, M. Owens out this week)

    Up 1,048 spots in overall rank. Keep improving each week which is all I can ask for and now in top 8K. Given I only just scraped in to the top 30K last year I feel like I am already a winner.

    Frustrations from the weekend:
    – Had to trade Cleary rather than SDK because I stuffed up my bench structure and couldn’t switch after the first game. Not a huge loss given he is probably out of the squad now. SDKs BE is low again so might still make some cash before I trade him out come R15
    – I went with Gawn as C, as I changed it between him and Oliver 5 times over the weekend. Is what it is.

  14. Angus

    June 14, 2022 at 3:19 pm

    DEF: Short, Hewett, Sinclair, Zorko, Sicily (SDK, Boyd)
    MID: Brayshaw, Mills, Neale, Petracca, Cripps, Whitfield, Hately, Clark (Soligo, Owens)
    RUC: Gawn, English (S Hayes)
    FWD: Dunkley, Bont, Cogs, Cameron, Brodie, Hobbs (Callow, Rosas)
    UTL: Stephens


    Petracca —-> Laird
    Zorko —-> Himmelberg
    Clark —-> Parnell
    This will mean having to field 2 rookies after byes though :\
    Zorko —-> Laird
    SDK —-> Parnell
    Clark —-> Clarke
    Only 1 rookie on field this time

    Any thoughts appreciated :)

    • PowerAde

      June 14, 2022 at 4:12 pm

      missing a defender, i like option 1

  15. Angus

    June 14, 2022 at 4:21 pm

    Sorry, add Dawson into the backline

  16. Ye

    June 14, 2022 at 4:39 pm

    Thoughts on:
    Butters -> Himmelberg
    Hayes -> Wehr
    Moore -> English

    DEF: Dawson, Docherty, Sicily, Hewett, Rich, Zorko (SDK, Wehr)
    MID: Neale, Oliver, Miller, Macrae, Kelly, Cripps, Clark, Hobbs (Owens, McComb)
    RUC: Gawn, English (Hayes)
    FWD: Dunkley, Coniglio, Butters, Coleman, Brodie, Martin (Windhager, Durdin)
    UTL: Soligo

    Option 1:
    Zorko > Whitfield
    Butters > Hately
    Owens > Clarke/Parnell

    Will leave 1 rookie, plus Martin, Coleman and Hately after the byes.

    Option 2:
    Zorko > Whitfield
    Coleman > Himmleberg
    Hayes > Teakle

    Will leave 2 rookies, plus Martin, Butters and Himmleberg after the byes.

    Bring in Dawson, Stewart or Miller this week? And in what order

    • BrodieA

      June 15, 2022 at 8:10 pm

      Dawson this week (has gone big against GC before)
      Miller in for round 16
      Stewart after his breakeven comes down? but could come in whenever

  21. Bradmcl

    June 14, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Need some help with trades:

    Option 1: Durdin -> J clarke, Zorko -> Doch, Brodie ->Duncan

    Option 2: Durdin -> J clarke, Zorko -> Whit, Brodie -> Guthrie

    Option 3: De koning -> J clarke, Zorko -> whit, Brodie ->Laird

    Any thoughts would be appreciated

    • Ye

      June 14, 2022 at 9:49 pm

      Option 3 looks best to me, option 2 is also good

    • BrodieA

      June 15, 2022 at 8:06 pm

      I was gonna say option 1, getting best defender and surely Duncan cant be that bad for the next 4 weeks at least, great matchups. But you probably cant go wrong option 3 either.

  22. Jono

    June 14, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    Looking to downgrade J Smith who isn’t getting a game to a base price def/mid so I can swing Daicos into the backline. Are any of them even remotely a chance of getting a game at some point?

    • brian Smith

      June 14, 2022 at 10:38 pm

      ESS – Ambrosio is being talked up

    • Gaz

      June 15, 2022 at 3:02 pm

      I would take D’Ambrosio if he’s picked but Durdin is definitely in and should be in the side for a while due to injuries

  23. Bus driver

    June 15, 2022 at 12:51 am

    Bring in bont and Duncan or himmel and English?

    • Andy

      June 15, 2022 at 8:21 pm

      Option 2

  24. Jammy Cameron

    June 15, 2022 at 11:46 am

    Hayes – Teakle
    Zorko – whitfield
    Darcy – English


    Get in Himmelberg for heeney even though heeney isnt on a bye – but i gotta get rid of him
    zorko – Doch
    hayes – graham

  25. Gaz

    June 15, 2022 at 2:00 pm

    Martin or Butters to Himmelberg?

    • BestowedMisery

      June 15, 2022 at 6:18 pm

      Butters.. Get rid of him, proven spud..

  26. Jack

    June 15, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    Stewart Whitfield or Sinclair?

  27. Dev

    June 15, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    Too late to bring Hately in?

    • BrodieA

      June 15, 2022 at 8:01 pm

      If he is named on the wing/middle, not too late

  28. BrodieA

    June 15, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Is it worth keeping K.Coleman and trading him out after Melbourne game? Good match up for defenders or am I crazy.

  29. Robbo

    June 16, 2022 at 2:32 pm

    Moving my final mid Rookie off ground for – Guthrie, Mills, or Laird?

  30. spud

    June 16, 2022 at 2:53 pm

    Laird and Doch or Mills and Whitfield?


    • Russell Pindick

      June 16, 2022 at 3:10 pm

      Laird and Doch for me Spud

  31. brian Smith

    June 16, 2022 at 3:47 pm

    First two trades are Gawn to English and Carroll to Teakle, giving 18 on field (I have no R3, only Cameron, English & Preuss, so I can’t have one of them sitting on the bench next week – have to get Teakle!).
    Now I have 200 to spend and not sure what trade to make.
    I have no rookies on field next week so I am looking at upgrading: Brodie, Lipinski, Zorko.
    Any comment which can go now? I feel Brodie is well below his b/e and only scoring 80s, so I feel he’s first out – either down to Himmelberg for some quick cash, or up to anyone.

    Forget it! As I write this I’m realising – Brodie to Laird looks good!

  32. James

    June 17, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    is press better than Macrae whilst factoring in value
