Might be the repeated post by George as to why he’s getting negged, lol. Someone ranked in the top 550 last year doesn’t really need advice though, lol.

In my opinion, everyone here who asks for an opinion/advice, 90% percent of the time, they known their own answer and have already made the decision themselves anyway.

I like to think I know how to play fantasy football. I’ve been playing some form of fantasy football for 30 years this year.😉

George, Crouch will more than likely outscore Martin, but Martin is certain to gain defender status in a couple of weeks so I would suggest him.

Thanks Dulcify, it’s a tough one it’s hard to split them
That’s why I’m tempted to go all the way up too serong but he’s so expensive

Praying for another 90+ score from Bonner sounds like massive hopium to me, or is it massive copium. Wouldn’t be be surprised if he got demoted to the sub.

Watched him last week and he looked to be playing that switch/exit kick out of defense, so the role is there, and he looks like a neat kick of the ball.

The 100+ was probably over performing, and he’ll definitely be up and down with his scoring, but can see him averaging 80 or high 70s. Still a decent pick.

If his ball use and defence doesn’t improve then could be in trouble with Ari Schoenmakers knocking the door down in the VFL!

Rossco is historically suuuuper conservative with selecting young players, unless they’re one of his pets, but that’s coming from a somewhat jaded Freo supporter after his time here xD

Lyon loves his teams to work themselves into the ground to get forward and back, so not sure how Schoenmakers will fit in with that, being a young KPP.

How bout Harvey Thomas? Picked him as a counter-intuitive play (wanting a red dot for r2/3 onwards, while also having an eye on getting lucky against WC), and I’m shocked that it appears to be working out as well as it does.

Really is some nice cash gen early from the rookies this season, should be able to pull off our upgrades much much earlier than usual for those prioritising structure development over sideways trading premos over the early byes.

Will be interesting to see how chasing the points early goes. Feels like people who don’t nail their sideways trades over the byes will be out of the race by mid season.

I would watch windhager for one more week, he looked the best I’ve seen him play last game and only scored in the 80s

Moving on Coffield to Massimo, but don’t have enough money to get to Powell from Sexton. (missing by $12k).
Do I downgrade sexy to a bench player and play Wilson or Mannagh on field and save my money for next week or get sucked into Powell (who has played one good game) and get someone $12k less than Massimo
