Brayshaw, Mills, Merrett or LDU?
The above options would be ins for Serong.
The other option I have is trade out Cripps and Serong for LDU and Billings
Mills or Merritt
Only one rookie left next week:
I’ll play either: Carmichael, Cumberland, or C.Durdin (last choice).
The week after= no rookies on the field at all.
That’s good for me!
Emergency on Cumberland and if he does not score well, use Carmichael on field. Hopefully you have a non playing rookie to use a loop?
Yep. That’s where Baldwin finally becomes useful.
If Kelly is out (concussion), do I try to fix both him and Hill sideways eg Coleman + Naicos, or do I wear Hill one more week and go Kelly to Laird/Mills/Oliver for example?
No chance of doing anything for the season, just looking for a bit of pride.
Which Kelly? Not Jelly, I hope. There were no injuries reported in that game, but his score was crap. Glad you can play for pride. I thought I had my team fixed up, with no rooks on field, but their scoring is crap – Jelly, English & JAnderson all in the 50s. Even with selecting Laird as Captain, I only got to 2141. Not impressed.
2225 for me, with poor scores from Parnell (now gone for Lloyd), Kelly, and Curnow.
Sicily, O’Brien and Witts weren’t all that flash either, but Gawn owners would be less happy.
Jelly has entered concussion protocols and will miss this week
I hope this is not true.
I don’t think Kelly had concussion. It sounded like a hip/leg problem, but he played through it anyway.
He was probably inconvenienced, hence the poor score.
Im pretty sure Kelly had delayed concussion miss next game if that’s the case
If that’s the case, JAnderson will get another week in my team. Was going JAnderson > Bont. If Jelly is out, I will go Jelly > Mills
Well if that’s the case that stuffs up my trades.
Looks like I’ll be playing two rookies.
Kelly received a knock to the head a few minutes before the end of the game.
2141 Pendles with Laird. Makes me feel better about my 2258 with Brayshit (on debut) as captain and not having Laird.
I would be happy with 2258. I actually thought my team was coming together nicely, but so many so called premos are just too inconsistent. Most years, by this time of the season, people are talking about who should be getting snouted. There is nobody even close to worthy this year.
Merrett or Bont + bit of a bank?
Both are good options, but I would lean towards Zerrett. I think he will be more consistent, and the Bombers have a better run home. I got Zerrett in last week. Bont will probably come in this week.
Cripps to one of; Walsh, Duncan, LDU, or Simpkin as a bit of a POD?
A few games at Geelong I would be leaning towards Duncan 👍🏼 (I am not a cats supporter)
3 out of 5 I should have stated 👍🏼
Fair chance Duncan’s roll changes with Stewart back soon I’d be going walsh
Anyone know if Ryder is out for a couple weeks if so Marshall is a must have
Injury report will come out this week, but definitely an option if hes out for a bit
Hi All we can do trades but does anyone know why the league tables are not updating thanks 👍🏼
Trades have been active since last night. Not sure about the league tables.
Just playing for league finals. 2nd in my league.
Do I do a double downgrade this week and get Doch in next week for Wehr? Or Wehr to Lloyd (who is the best I can get to) this week?
Trading out 1 of my 2 lowest scoring players over the last 3..
1. SicDog to the Doc
2. Speakano to Duncan
Duncan’s roll will probably change when Stewart’s back
Sicdog to Doc, English is a top 2 ruck and top 6 forward.
Brayshaw and I are no longer friends. I have only captained him twice this season and both times he has scored 80 and 78. I will VC him this week given the Friday game though. Doesn’t help that I’m 4k short from being able to upgrade Cripps to Laird.
I apologise to everyone the week I finally am able to bring Laird in because it will probably be his first game since R10 where he scores less than 100.
Brodie to Laird
Cripps to anyone cheaper than Laird
Gotta go Cripps to Mills/ Touk/ Brayshaw/ Steele. Brodie close to top 6 forwards, Cripps not even close to top 8 mid
Witts to English or Petracca to McCluggage/Oliver?
I have to trade Hill. My D1-5 currently are Doch, Crisp, Sinclair, Dawson & Sicdog. Who would come next into D6?
I’m looking at Dale, Himmelberg, Lloyd, Hind, Naicos, Pendles, Coleman, Hewett.
To me they are all somewhere between 95 – 105, so I could pick any of them and hope for the best.
I have about 160 to upgrade a player.
Should I go:
Whitfield > Sinclair
Titch/Cripps/Jelly > Brayshaw/Merrett/Mills?
Need to trade out 1 of the following players:
3) N Martin
Have about $259 in the bank.
Options for each are:
1) Jackson > B Smith / Treloar / Taranto / Walsh
2) Salem > Docherty / Dawson
3) N Martin > Same as Jackson
I ditched Salem
Cripps and Sicily to Marshall and Mills
Bench downgrade and go Cripps to Laird?
Witts – Marshall
Serong – Mills/Merrett
Witts about 90-95, Marshall about 115-120, Serong about 85, M/M about 125. Go Merrett
Agree with all but Marshall at 115-120 is a stretch. He’s awesome without Ryder but think a more realistic range is 105.
Witts to Marshall or Petracca to Oliver?
I am bringing in Bontempelli this week.
Other than one of my Rucks, Dangerfield and Gresham are my two weakest players.
Which one goes first this week, Dangerfield or Gresham?
Crippa to Mills and $180k this week, or could get Laird and break the bank. But have DC and Sic to fix up next few weeks. If Grundy is back I’ll need to get DC out for Marshall though.
Have to trade out Whitfield this week, got Sinclair, Dawson, Cripps, Hewett and Sicily and cant afford Doch. Do i bring in Lloyd, Redman or bring back Daicos
What if Whitto plays this week? He wasn’t even on the injury list last week, so he must have been close.
yeah shit he probably will be my worst player on field hes gotta go
heres a good one…
Rbrian – juicy pruicy
The pig – Mills
Rbrian – juicy pruicy
Crippa – Bazz
OR is pruess a no go
I reckon ROB is alright but if you want to trade him go for Marshall. I would trade crippa over titch and I would go for mills over Bazlenka.
Instead of Pruess why not Marshall? With Ryder out, Marshall becomes very attractive and should be good for 100+ over the remainder (and has DP).
Crippa to Duncan/Trac (limited $) or Keays to Mills ? I’ve had Keays all year but rather have Mills
Alright lads, in a bind here. Trading out Jelly for zerrett this week, my other trade is up in the air
Who would you guys ditch first(assuming grundy plays) out of Cameron or Cripps
Will get the same player in regardless of who I get rid of, looking at either marshall or warner
Cameron playing well and grundy wont take his spot. I would get rid of cripps before cameron easily
Cripps more likely to drop 80/90, Cameron could drop 110 or a 60/70 depending on the role but I think they will ease Grundy back into it. I think Marshall is a better option than Warner though
Def: Docherty, Short, Hewett, Sicily, Brayshaw, Wehr (Burgoyne, Archer)
Mid: Oliver, Mills, Miller, Macrae, Steele, Petracca, Mitchell, Rozee (Culley, Angwin)
Ruck: English, Witts (Begg)
Fwd: Dunkley, Coniglio, Brodie, Heeney, Anderson, Taranto (Bazzo, Baldwin)
I have 189k left wuith 2 trades. I’m kinda stuck and rlly wanna beat my friend this week. Thoughts?
gotta find a way to get wehr off the field imo. Doesnt look like you can do it this week to a defender you might really want, so maybe just double downgrade some rookies or rotate some underperforming premos to slightly cheaper guys. Warner from sydney for example could be a nice way to grab some cash by downgrading titch
Im a big Kid.Coleman fan, but might be affected with Rich and Zorko coming back. Although might be designated kicker from this point onwards
Most expensive bench down to a 190 red dot (green dot would be a bonus), spend the cash on Wehr – Coleman or Hind look most likely. Or if you want to spend a little bit of next week’s cash, get Johnson for 212.
Culley or Cumberland?
Culley if named
Hey fellas, bit stuck here with only 9k atm in the bank
DEF: SicDog, Doch, Short, Sinclair, Crisp, Brayshaw (Ambrosio, Parnell)
MID: Neale, Mills, Brayshaw, Touk, Daicos, Dawson, Hewett, Laird (Burgoyne, Tunstill)
RUCK: English, Cameron (Teakle)
FWD: B. Smith, Himmelberg, MARSHALL, Dunks, Cogs, Brodie (Bedendo, Hollands smh)
1 Trade used at the moment which is Witts -> Marshall, thought of going Touk -> Zerrett or even something like Crisp to J. Lloyd, or should I trade someone out and place a rook on the field and save some cash for next week, getting in someone like a Carmichael?
Your rucks and foward line look good, but you have a lot of defenders clogging a premium midfielder spot. Personally I’d be trading out either Crisp (Bad form), Brayshaw or Sicdog for a better mid if you can afford it.
If not downgrade Parnell to a cheap rook for a better upgrade next week.
Helmet Brayshaw not Andy
Thanks for the advice, I was definitely looking at Crisp as someone to remove, maybe him into youngster, move Parnell on field and then a better performing mid next week? :) Good advice though
bring in brayshaw or mills?
Sinclair and soligo
Mills and SDK
