    Need some serious help this round

    DEF Newnes, Hodge, Boyd, Picken, Yeo, Mcveigh (leslie Edwards)
    MID Rocky, Danger, Stevens, Priddis, Fyfe, Neale, Barlow, Wallis (Lambert, atkins)
    RUCK Golds Jacobs (downie, phillips)
    FWD Bartel, Martin, Swan, Riewoldt, Gray, Mitchell (knight, reid)

    30k in the bank

    My two options is barlow for cash and move lambert into the midfield to get mundy for yeo leaving me with $380,000 for next round

    Other option is Barlow for sloane, yeo for ryan griffin/hibberd no money left

    • ChadWingard

      August 20, 2015 at 10:56 am

      Sorry $208,000 left in the first option

      • swanslyfe

        August 20, 2015 at 11:12 am

        Well you have Boyd and Picken so you are going to have to rethink.

      • himynameis2v

        August 20, 2015 at 11:52 am

        If you’re okay with fielding lambert for a week, I’d field him and save the cash to upgrade him next week to a premium, which atleast gives you a premium defender, I’d go option one.

        • ChadWingard

          August 20, 2015 at 12:39 pm

          Was thinking that but the whole boyd picken thing. My opponent has both of them too and he has luke parker so I think Ill do barlow for menzel, boyd for mundy, leave yeo there for now (I hate this!) and but on edwards for picken for this week, picken should be back next week

  2. sam

    August 20, 2015 at 11:24 am

    Desperate times, unfortunately have to choose a defender under 450k. thinking either griffen,hibberd or birchall. Thoughts?

    • himynameis2v

      August 20, 2015 at 11:54 am

      Tough call, if probably take a punt on griffen, or maybe whichever leaves you the most cash for next week?

  3. antongus1

    August 20, 2015 at 11:59 am

    Opinions on Enright for Boyd? Think he is more consistent than the likes of Houli, Higgins etc

    Have; Mundy Shaw McVeigh Hibbo Simpson

    • Marty

      August 20, 2015 at 12:18 pm

      I initially had Enirght in as a transfer for Yeo. Downgraded a rookie and got him in.

      Couldn’t afford Picken or Shaw and felt Enright was the next best. Is consistent reliable and an 89 avg is not bad at all.

      I already have Mundy, Hodge, Boyd, McVeigh, Newnes, Yeo.

      No with Boyd gone though…

  4. Marty

    August 20, 2015 at 12:15 pm

    Any advice welcome on the following two scenarios

    1) Trade out Boyd and Yeo for Shaw and Gilbert
    2) Trade out Boyd and Yeo for Enright and Laird

    Cheers

      August 20, 2015 at 12:55 pm

      #2 IMO

  5. cody

    August 20, 2015 at 12:52 pm

    What’s happened to Boyd?!?!

    • cody

      August 20, 2015 at 12:53 pm

      And Picken?

    • Dylan

      August 21, 2015 at 12:54 pm

      the general strikes again

  6. swanslyfe

    August 20, 2015 at 1:10 pm

    rested/sore

  7. MD

    August 20, 2015 at 1:16 pm

    Boyd + Picken…

    … what is everyone doing? Hold or Fold?

    • swanslyfe

      August 20, 2015 at 1:35 pm

      It’s either Hold or Play Barlow… Probably going to hold.

      • MD

        August 20, 2015 at 1:52 pm

        Ouch. If you can win with cover/donut.. drop Barlow.

        I only have Picken but can cover with a fwe DPP moves with Reid or McGuane

        • swanslyfe

          August 20, 2015 at 2:09 pm

          Yeah I’m going to have to cover Picken with Clurey, I’m pretty sure he will be named for Friday. I Hope. That or Schade who will probably get the call back up from reserves this week.

    • Matt

      August 20, 2015 at 1:45 pm

      I’ve got the week off, so I’m holding Boyd… my trade plan was to bring in Picken this week, honestly tossing up copping the 0 just to keep to structure haha

  8. antongus1

    August 20, 2015 at 3:23 pm

    Lets rank the following to help people with Boyd/Picken

    Enright, Houli, Laird, Higgins, Birchall, Roberton, KK, Griffen

    I am thinking…

    Laird > Enright > Houli > Higgins > Roberton > KK > Griffen > Birchall

    Laird – gun, could get a 70
    Enright – most consistent, old man vest concern only reason he isn’t (1)? (see Stokes, Kelly, Stevie J etc)
    Houli – high ceiling, could burn you
    Higgins – needs goals to score, has difficult fixtures (which are also fantasy restrictive)
    Roberton – Poor last week but been amazing since r8. Huge differential
    KK – Was good, been wank since Malceski came back
    Griffen – who knows ??? Is he better in the guts or off half back?
    Birchall – Hawthorn defence – bar Hodge – are all the same, just roll the dice and hope you get over 80. Good price

    Anyone else want to contribute? Left out Hibberd/Simpson/Newnes because they are pretty standard picks which you can’t go wrong with / people already have. This is best of the rest…

    • John Freed

      John Freed

      August 20, 2015 at 7:59 pm

      Roberton is out, so not counting him. Higgins was injured last week, so excluding him to. Birchall is to inconsistent to be considered. With the rest, I’d go

      Laird, Enright, Houli, Griffen, Kolodjashnij

      Others even cheaper to consider are:
      Z. Williams, S. Gilbert, J. Geary, T. Cutler

  9. Connor white

    August 20, 2015 at 5:45 pm

    Hannebery, Montagna or Dangerfield????

    • John Freed

      John Freed

      August 20, 2015 at 7:53 pm

      Montagna, Hannebery, Danger in that order. But my formula has them within 3 points f each other

  10. HairyMan

    Looking for a POD (under 10%) MID under 565k. Any suggestions?

    • John Freed

      John Freed

      August 20, 2015 at 7:03 pm

      Robinson, Caddy, Hill, Murphy, Shiels, Treloar, Redden, Smitchell or Thompson.

  11. Lachlan

    August 20, 2015 at 6:18 pm

    Which 2 do I get out first barlow,picken, yeo, I’m playing in all my leagues this week so I think I have to get rid of Picken

    • John Freed

      John Freed

      August 20, 2015 at 6:58 pm

      DO you have good backline cover? If so, keep Picken. If not, keep Yeo, but trade next week.

      • Lachlan

        August 20, 2015 at 10:54 pm

        Cheers My cover is dick

  12. John Freed

    John Freed

    August 20, 2015 at 6:55 pm

    Kelly and Roberton to go. Options include

    1. Laird + Griffen/Hibberd/Simpson
    2. Houli/Enright + Kolodjashnij/Griff/Hibbo/Simo
    3. Mundy + Cutler/Smith/Walker
    or play Pearce and:
    4. Roberton + Daniel-> Mundy + Dick (can play Dick over Pearce)
    5. Kelly + Daniel-> Mundy + Dick/Menzel/Freeman

    • bac

      August 21, 2015 at 1:04 am

      Enright + Hibbo would be my pick

  13. ablett4brownlow

    August 20, 2015 at 6:57 pm

    Zaharakis as a unique pickup? 5 round average of 86 and plays gold coast this week!

    • John Freed

      John Freed

      August 20, 2015 at 7:00 pm

      I have him. He’s been solid, nothing special. But new coach and good run home would have him good as a cheaper f6. Jump on!

  14. SpagBol

    August 20, 2015 at 7:13 pm

    Will titch return next week??
    OR will i have to trade parker to sloane??

    NOTE: I am not playing a league game this week (into prelims)
    So i could hold titch if he is playing next week…

    Anyone know any news?

    • John Freed

      John Freed

      August 20, 2015 at 7:17 pm

      “Expected to miss one, possibly two weeks, as it does involve the eye.” (Source: Sydney Swan’s twitter account) Make what you will of that.

      • SpagBol

        August 20, 2015 at 7:23 pm

        Ok, thanks…. probs gonna get sloane then…

  15. Cameron

    August 20, 2015 at 7:27 pm

    Glenn – Fantasia
    Parker – Sloane/I.Smith/Ward
    Hold Ziebell play Fantasia on field
    Or should I look at trading Zibell? I am already holding Armo

    • John Freed

      John Freed

      August 20, 2015 at 8:01 pm

      Keep Ziebell. At least he will certainly be back next week

  16. nkthegunner12

    August 20, 2015 at 7:41 pm

    Boyd -> Hannebery
    OR
    James Kelly -> Heppell/Goddard?

      John Freed

      August 20, 2015 at 7:59 pm

    • John Freed

      John Freed

      August 20, 2015 at 8:02 pm

      In order:
      Roberton- Form slipping and should be able to get someone decent
      Titchell- May miss 2 weeks
      Boyd- Only a rest, will be back next week

  18. leighroy

    August 20, 2015 at 8:01 pm

    • John Freed

      John Freed

      August 20, 2015 at 8:04 pm

      Who are you covering with. This will dictate your trade

  19. John Freed

    John Freed

    August 20, 2015 at 8:28 pm

    Griffen, Gilbert or Hibberd and why

    • Cameron

      August 20, 2015 at 9:53 pm

      Hibbo, he is under-priced for his potential and he is more consistent than Griff or Gilbo

  20. Tom

    August 20, 2015 at 9:23 pm

    which 2 to trade out of boyd, kelly, mitchell, parker, armitage? i have no mid cover, knights as fwd cover and dick and edwards for defence

    • andrew007

      August 20, 2015 at 10:41 pm
