Daicos, Ziebell, Sicily, Stewart, Sheezel, Day
(Chesser , Young)
Laird, Kelly, Green, Brayshaw, Worpel, Ashcroft, Fiorini, Atkins
(Ward law, Johnson)
Taranto, Coniglio, Dunkley, Gulden, Rozee, Mitchell
169k in the bank.
Gawn to English
Zac Butters or Bailey Smith?
I’m having the same problem…dunno who to go with
butters, with treloar coming back soon and role could change
Going to be bold and dumping N.Daicos for Bailey Smith.
Trading out the highest averaging defender, and the 7th highest averaging player overall…. I would use a different word to “bold”
something more like.. idk… ******* ****
TU- Caleb Daniel
TD- Bailey Dale
Is Doch injured?
yes 4-6 weeks
oliver and fiorini out for Bazlenka and neale? pending on whether oliver is injured
Oliver is injured out for a month hamstring
You’re just like an annoying, attention-starved child doing ‘pranks’ on the adults
its true – 3-5 is the diagnosis
My apologies, I stand corrected! I assumed with the Doch injury “news” above that it was just some more trolling
doc is also out, guess your carrier pigeon died
Can’t find a source that says Docherty is injured.
So.much for Doch being out!! Wish I had ignored the trolls
make sure you pay
Would love to get Butters in but I just can’t bring in anymore rd 15 bye players. What is everyone’s thoughts on Lachie Neale?
Lachie neale would be worth a punt
Whos the best option for trading mcvee out for my bench, looking to downgrade to a rookie in defence for cash
Take a punt on Josh Fahey, should get a game soon
If Fahey is playing do i go:
Pedlar & Fiorini -> Laird and Fahey
M.Roberts & Cincotta -> Wardlaw & Fahey
Getting rid of non playing players will be great for the byes but also this is a good chance to grab Laird now..
Having Laird would be great, but having non-playing guys can really burn your options and cash generation during the byes. I say option 2
Jack Steele or Lachie Neale??
Naicos, Dawson, Stewart, Day, Ratkins, Ginbey
(Willy Gould , Wilmot)
Tom Green, Nanderson, Steele, Butters, Rozee, Rowell, Worpedo, Cashcroft
(Noah long, Chesser)
Taranto, Errol, Dunks, SHEEZ, The Pou, Cam Mackenzie
(Fergus, Alwyn Davey)
51k in the bank.
Ginbey -> Wardlaw
Pou -> Whoever you can afford
Going to get Wardlaw regardless
Double downgrade to get rid of red dots and chase cash gen or
Upgrade to get butters
Who goes out of Liam Baker, Xaver Ohalloran Oli Hollands?
Waiting on Clayton, Is Harry Sharp still worth getting? Zerrett looked piggish
So to get in either option1 Merret & Hobbs or
Neale & Sic Dog
1 if willing to risk Hobbs. Neale and Sicily are both a risk when considering the low scores they have produced some rounds
Hobbs is a risk but 3 easy rounds coming up and then hopefully off load after making some cash.
Taking byes into account, Is it anderson or merrett in for oliver?
If byes are a factor, then Anderson.
Had a decent week. Scored 2360.
OUT – Luke Pedlar, Clayton Oliver
IN – George Wardlaw, Zach Merrett
Remaining Salary – $261k
Team Value – $20.56m
Dawson, Docherty, Stewart, Day, Hunt, Mitchell (Cincotta, Bergman)
Green, Laird, Merrett, Steele, Ashcroft, Fiorini, Atkins, Wardlaw (Sharp, Roberts)
English, Marshall (Ryan)
Taranto, Gulden, Dunkley, Ziebell, Rozee, Sheezel (van Rooyen, Drury)
Excellent team, probably 16 keepers, I only have 8, got my highest score this round with 2164
Petracca & Pedlar > Smith & Sheed
Is sheed worth the punt?
Why trade out tracca?
His BE gone too high for my liking especially with player like butters, smith and sheed all cheaper and having better L3 AVG and better runs. No Oliver has me rethinking it tho
Looking to bring a player in sub $785k
Daniel Rioli $762 Def
Will Day $768 Def/Mid
R Atkins $553 Def/Mid
J Simpkin $718 Mid
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated
My other trade is bringing in L Mcandrew
Simpkin or day/atkins
Hobbs + $$
Taking byes into account, do i go anderson or merrett in for oliver?
Merrett easily over Anderson. He has easy games in the next few weeks
should i bring in bailey smith and JHF(i know this is a cardinal sin), or my initial reaction which was docherty/merrett and max king
What about Merret and Hobbs?
Def: Daicos, Ziebell, Sicily, Stewart, Day, Rat (Young,Chesser)
Mid: Oliver, Laird, Jelly, Green, Rozee, Boak, Ashcroft, Cincotta (Humphrey, Sharp)
Ruck: English, Marshall (Heath)
Fwd: TT, Dunkley, Gulden, Sheezel, Rachele, Mitchell (Poo, Drury)
Brought in Jelly last week, had Merret in than I changed. Great
Jelly—> Uber Premo
Thoughts on who the Uber should be?
Merrett is a good choice. As for the other trade consider Serong whom I traded in last round. He is cheaper than Walsh and Bontempelli and should average the same, if not more.
Only considering Bont because of his matchup and he has a later bye
In the same situation with Jkelly & Clayton, all week have had them to Tom Green & Zerrett but now thinking to Hold Clayton (may only be 2 weeks) & Trade Out a player like Liam Baker to Hobbs, plus Clayton won’t loose money & can rollover
For yourself a Travis Boak/ Cincotta/ Rachele Type > Hobbs
Kelly > Zerrett
Steele vs Butters vs Bazlenka?
Butters has gone bang the last few weeks and his CBA’s are up, but the concern is prior to that he only had one score in the 100’s. I tend to avoid Bulldog’s mids because of Bevo changing the magnets around and not forgetting Treloar will be back round 12. Steele has had some quiet games this year.
On all that maybe Steele slightly over Butters
Who’s some PODs for Clarry. Considering Zerrett but given where I am in the ranks (terrible) I want to roll the dice a bit
Looking a little cheaper, maybe sub $900k. Libba, Short and Steele come to mind.
Merrett’s is a solid pick, but expect his ownership to climb this week. Libba’s average is 14 points higher than the last two years and I doubt Bevo will move him as he is a pure midfielder. For Steele read above. Short isn’t a consistent scorer in the 100″s.
Have a look at Serong, he has low ownership and has been really good this season.
All my rucks (Marshall, Darcy and McAndrew) have the same bye. Would it be worth bringing in Darcy Cameron (or other) as cover or have no ruck scores and hope the rest on field can cover?
If you have 18 scorers across the field it shouldn’t be an issue. Might mean some rookies play.
Really struggling to choose between
A) Steele and Fahey (if named)
B) Butters/Smith (which would be my 10th round 15 bye) and McAndrew
Any help would be really appreciated :)
Thoughts on witherden as a pod??
Depends on what you have to spend. He’s known for low scores at times. If you can afford it, I think there are many better options than him.
Thoughts on Petracca with Oliver out CBA’s should rise and will be number 1 guy
Already have butters, merrett and laird
His CBA’s were high in the previous 2 seasons. The problem with selecting him is his inconsistency with scoring in the 100’s, 2022 59% and 2021 64%. At his price you would be wanting more consistency. Walsh has proven he can be consistent, or take a punt on Bontempelli. Other than them, Serong has been strong but you would only have him for one game before his bye.
