Don’t cry over cash (cows): Round 4 Review

In a very mixed week of AFL Dream Team, fantasy coaches were celebrating the highs of some premiums (and even some rookies) while there were quite a few rookies who let us down. Good luck to those who nailed the right on field rookies. Let us know how your round went.

    Whos the best to trade for Tex Walker, Mid or Fwd under 527k

    • EmeraldIllusion

      Easily Stevie J.

      go rocky

      • EmeraldIllusion

        April 22, 2013 at 9:56 am

        Rocky is also a great option. I assumed he already had Rock.

      • EmeraldIllusion

        April 22, 2013 at 1:33 am

        I’d say it’s more “stupid” than interesting. Unless you’ve read something about him being injured? Otherwise there is no reason to trade him out, he is an absolute gun.

    • EmeraldIllusion

      I’d say Bergs or Goldy. But McEvoy racks up the marks and Maric does tend to have awesome matches here and there.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Another round of missing with the wrong rookies & some keepers failing. In the end it is just a setback that I need to make up for next week. Seems to be the pattern, a good week followed by a poor week.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Not perfect, but some improvement made from last week. Viney’s 12 really sticks in my craw along with Whitfeilds handy 86 benched. Danger has finally come through with the goods and posted up hes very first tonne for the year hopefully more to come. 2100 par next week

    Round 4 trades: Ok so which trades do you guys think are better? Kommer and Kitchell to Mayes and Evans? Or Kitchell and Bartel to Evans and S. Johnson?
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Decent score this week, almost got me back into the top 10K. Goldstein let me down, should have went with Bergs, but I’m going to stick to him and hope he makes it up to me next week. Bartel is a legend but he just doesn’t seem to be floating through the mids as much as I thought he would. Johnson seems to be always around the ball no matter where it is, so I really wanna get him in. Should I give Bartel one more week to prove himself?

    C) Currie for Rowe

      Forgot to mention Pittard in the DT Studs. Currently thinking to get rid of Dusty for Mayes and bring in Birchall for Plowman… will be:
      Def: Birch, Heppel, Gibbs, Goddard, Goodes, Pittard – Bench: Stevenson, Frost
      Mid: Swan, Ablett, Murphy, Libba, Mullet, Wines, Moloney, O’Meara – Bench: Viney, Crouch

    Round 4 trades: I traded Heath Shaw to Birchall, and Kane Mitchell to Brad Crouch.
    Brag: Ranked 14th overall, so travelling nicely, with $180k in spare cash.

  17. Sherin Bandito

    April 22, 2013 at 10:38 am

    Any suggestions about which defender to bring in? Please explain your reasons? Struggling to make a decision

    Dyson Heppell
    Grant Birchall
    Hamish Harlett
    Michael Hibberd
    Shaun Burgoyne


    • shadowboxer89

      April 22, 2013 at 1:05 pm

      Easy I wound bring in Birchall averaging 119. He gets plenty of possession around half back and takes a lot of marks. Heppell also I good choice plays more in midfield so racks it up. But if u want huge scores then go with Birchall.

    Round 4 trades:Brought in the HOFF! (for Karnezis), and Leuenberger in for Jacobs (so I could afford to board the HOFF train lol)
    Vent/Brag/Whatever:Dodged some bullets with Viney and Daw on my bench (not that I would have started Daw anyway). My Forward line is firing on all cylinders, and that’s what won me my H2H this week: Hoff, Rockliff, N.Riewoldt, JJK, Buddy, Dwyer (Neade & Mcaffer on the pine making some steady cash!). Pretty happy at the moment!

    Thoughts on who i should downgrade to get some cash to upgrade rookies later on, need some cash…

    • DreamKillaz

      April 22, 2013 at 2:09 pm

      you have heaps of cash in your cows just start double trading next week. Next week depending on rises/decreases if I was you i’d probably upgrade a defender, say Stevenson -> Hartlett or Hanley, and downgrade Neade or Dwyer to Kerridge from Adelaide. That way your bringing in a premium + a cash cow, Kerridge looks the best out of the 1 gamers at this stage !

    anyway what do you guys think of these trades!
    golby to terlich- probably the worst decision i have made picking golby in my starting team. and then mitchell to mayes.

    Would anyone like to recommend either way? If I make the first trade mentioned I’m looking at a projected 2163, otherwise I go towards 2 money making rookies (Mayes and Evans). Thoughts?

Still a long way to go before I’m happy, but at least this past week hasn’t been as painful as the last three. =/
