    Trade Barlow or Wells?

    Wells looks to be back in next week with Kangas saying theyre being overly cautious. But its that Achilles from last year…

    I’d hate to trade Barlow and he’s named next week but it’s concerning that 39 disposals didn’t help his cause this week

    Thoughts? One needs to go.

    • CrozaN.

      May 20, 2016 at 8:38 am

      I have a weird feeling Barlow will be a late in.

      Is named as an emg, wasn’t named in the WAFL side, bad weather could force a few of the talls out. I don’t know but i dont think they would have named him as an EMG if they weren’t planning on bringing him in.

      Praying he comes in tho to save me a 0.

    Zorko or Nroo?

    • CrozaN.

      May 20, 2016 at 8:39 am

      I prefer Zorko, but can’t go wrong with either.

      • Simon

        May 20, 2016 at 9:35 am

        I would say you couldn’t go wrong with a fallen premo (Montagna or Martin) or one on the way up (Buddy or Walters), but buying someone at top dollar can only really go one way for you.

        Is the guaranteed $100k extra going to guarantee you the extra 20pts a week that it costs? If the answer’s “no”, there are probably better options.

        Happy to be proven wrong though.

    Who would be better pick for value.


    I know mathieson is cheaper but just thinking better pick, will have to be my M8 for awhile

    • crisis

      May 20, 2016 at 8:54 am

      Hopper. Will score more and hopefully increase enough to be a stepping stone post byes

  4. Corey

    May 20, 2016 at 8:07 am

    Trade Ablett to Lewis & Wells to Monty leaving a 0 in defence with $101k for next week


    Wells to Monty and Adams to Leslie with $268k next week and only 4 mid premos on field

  5. hello

    May 20, 2016 at 8:48 am

    Mcrouch and barlow to dusty and simpson


    Mcrouch and wells to dusty and mathieson?

    1 or 2?

    • crisis

      May 20, 2016 at 9:55 am

      dusty and simpson much better to own for obvious reasons

      if Mathieson is going to be on your field then I’d go with 1 – also depends who you have as cover for wells

      I brought in both dusty and simpson last week (for wells and fantasia)

  6. Crisis

    May 20, 2016 at 9:01 am

    So I’m thinking:

    M crouch to hopper
    Ablett to Viney (Can afford up to $580k). Already have danger and hanners. Any standouts instead of viney? Considering pendles as well.

    Jack Steven too, even though his price likely to fall again


    • hello

      May 20, 2016 at 9:11 am

      Yeah good trades.

      Advice on mine above

    • SpagBol

      May 20, 2016 at 9:23 am

      You just missed out on Treloar (by 4k) would be a great POD..

      • Crisis

        May 20, 2016 at 9:29 am

        So you think treloar is worth spending the extra $ over a pendles?

  7. Adam

    May 20, 2016 at 9:40 am

    Should I trade Gazza or Rocky this week?

    • Adam

      May 20, 2016 at 9:44 am

      I could do Ablett to Gibbs/Viney or Rockliff to Sloane/Lewis

    • CapnOblivious

      May 20, 2016 at 11:13 am

      Rocky’s coming along nicely and Gaz was only out with concussion so they “should” be back next week (I wouldn’t bank on anything after this week though). So if you want to trade one, I’d probably go with Ablett to a premium rather than the slightly more risky Lewis/Sloane. I wouldn’t trade either but that’s mostly because of the other carnage in my team.

  8. Sidney

    May 20, 2016 at 9:40 am

    Trade Wells or Rocky?

  9. Cam

    May 20, 2016 at 9:47 am

    Wells – Trengove (Tippa DPP)
    Ablett – Treloar
    Berger – Goldy
    Ablett – Trengove/Hopper

  10. hello

    May 20, 2016 at 9:53 am

    Mcrouch and barlow to dusty and simpson


    Mcrouch and wells to dusty and mathieson?


  11. Will

    May 20, 2016 at 10:02 am

    Have Boyd, Laird, Ablett, Rocky, Hall, Wells, Barlow, Crouch and Ruggles all sitting out with $2k in the bank. I can get away with trading Crouch and Ruggles to Dusty and Mohr using all my money. Is it worth it or do i just trade a premium instead. Feel like my trades are better for the long run, thoughts?

    • Simon

      May 20, 2016 at 10:32 am

      Dusty’s a good trade, not sold on Mohr tho. Could you go Wells and Crouch to Mathieson and Marin instead? I have a sneaky feeling Wells will be out for a while still… time to cut the bad fruit (Crouch Bros) off the tree, so good call there!

  12. Confused

    May 20, 2016 at 10:06 am

    Do I upgrade McCarthy to Walters or double downgrade which leaves me with $400K but Menadue on ground? Do care about ranking.

    The downgrade would be Matt Crouch to Macpherson and Clay Cameron to Leslie?

    • Simon

      May 20, 2016 at 10:33 am

      The Cameron to Leslie is a waste to me. Go McCarthy to Walters instead.

    • Broo

      May 20, 2016 at 11:00 am

      Leslie likely to be a late out. Has rolled his ankle at training

  13. gambler


    May 20, 2016 at 10:36 am

    Hanners or Danger captain?

    Hanners more reliable overall but Danger is hot at the moment. Surely he carves up the pies.


    • Broo

      May 20, 2016 at 10:59 am

      Yeah I’m bringing in danger this week and possibly chucking the big C on him. He’s just consistently going 110+

      • gambler


        May 20, 2016 at 11:00 am

        One of the few players in the league who can’t be stopped when he’s on his game.

        • Simon

          May 20, 2016 at 11:08 am

          Who have the Maggies got that could stop him anyway? Will carve the sh!t out of them, unless he decides to get lazy.

          • gambler


            May 20, 2016 at 11:14 am

            Greenwood tagged Murphy 2 weeks ago, might run with him. Won’t bother him though.

  14. Broo

    May 20, 2016 at 11:04 am

    I heard Zerret hobbled off at training a couple days ago with a calf complaint. I believe this was minor and should still definitely play, but has anything else been heard on this? Tossing up whether to put the C on him or Dangerfield

    • Deztroyer


      May 20, 2016 at 11:18 am

      was thinking about bringing him in too this week. do you have source?

      • Broo

        May 20, 2016 at 11:30 am

        It’s on the @DTTalk twitter

    • Callum

      May 20, 2016 at 11:33 am

      Should be fine. No worries. Chuck the C on him.

  15. subdub

    May 20, 2016 at 11:17 am

    Best forward option between Walters, Franklin, Waite & Dahlhaus? Would prefer Zorko or Montagna but not enough cash this week.

    • Black Thunda

      May 20, 2016 at 2:18 pm

      Walters this week in terms of form, Dahlhaus in the long run. Personally I’d go dahlhaus as he’d be consistent and possible top 6 forward

  16. Deztroyer


    May 20, 2016 at 11:18 am

    who to get in:

    montagna, walters, buddy, zerret?

    • Callum

      May 20, 2016 at 11:31 am

      Monty for value.
      Walters for a big risk, Buddy for a little risk.
      Zerrett for the safe scores.

      If you have the $$ I’d go Zerrett. For value ‘d go Monty.

    • CapnOblivious

      May 20, 2016 at 11:33 am

      I like Monty for his price, scoring ability and his upcoming games. The rest have considerable upside (especially Walters if he maintains his role) so all should serve you well.

  17. CapnOblivious

    May 20, 2016 at 11:28 am

    My outs are Wells, Barlow, Gaz, Rocky, Laird, Ruggles, Hall and McCarthy.

    Are my highest priorities Wells and Barlow? Wells should be out for 2 and realistically would have needed to be upgraded at some point. Barlow seems to be out of favor at the moment but could come back and unlike Gaz and Rocky for instance, is uninjured. thanks guys.

    • Broo

      May 20, 2016 at 11:33 am

      Barlow should hopefully be back next week, I am keeping him. Also not named in the WAFL, potential rain over here in Perth on the weekend, could be called up to play if Freo feel they need to go smaller.

      • CapnOblivious

        May 20, 2016 at 11:52 am

        Thanks for that, him not being named in the 2nd’s gives me some hope he’ll be back sooner rather than later. I might still trade him out but trading McCarthy down to Mathieson or trading Gaz in Barlow’s place looks more enticing.

  18. Agents of S.H.I.E.L

    May 20, 2016 at 12:38 pm

    Currently have four 0s on the field (2 after trades). What I do with my trades will be shaped by potential late changes. Which two are most likely to be late call-ups out of Barlow, Ruggles and Howe (I’ll know Howe’s fate before lockout but I want to make some trades now in case I can’t get to it later)?

    Barlow isn’t named for the Peel and there’s speculation that he might come in for a tall due to the weather.
    Lonergan is named for the Cats despite being taken out of last week’s game due to concussion. Might be replaced by Ruggles.
    Hawks are a great source of late changes and apparently Birchall is carrying an injury.

    • Fooz


      May 20, 2016 at 3:30 pm

      I hope Ruggles plays.

      • Fooz


        May 20, 2016 at 3:30 pm

        I know Geelong is rotating their backlines, but Why did ruggles get dropped after only 1 game back…? Anyone?

  19. Ben

    May 20, 2016 at 1:00 pm

      Go the guys with DPP as Roy would say.

    • Callum

      May 20, 2016 at 1:46 pm

      Mullett and Treloar! Are you kidding me? Mullett and Treloar any day of the week! if not Mullett, go Mohr or someone! There’s no contest!

    Should I downgrade Houli > Mullett and do Crouch up to treloar or any premo
    or Houli > Bartel & Crouch to either hopper or Petracca ?

    • Black Thunda

      May 20, 2016 at 2:25 pm

      Option 1

    • Brad

      Id go 1 mate. Grab a top 8 mid (Pendles, Danger etc.)

  22. woodside_warrior

    May 20, 2016 at 2:04 pm

    hey dudes,
    Who should I trade out between Menadue or McCarthy?

    McCarth a better player and should be bck next week (Probs make some more $$)
    While Mena is playing this week on bench and has DPP status …..

    • PMac

      May 20, 2016 at 2:10 pm

      trade mena. help above please

    • Black Thunda

      May 20, 2016 at 2:23 pm

      McCarthy’s BE at 68, whereas Mena at 40 odd if that makes a difference. I’d still go Mena before he loses more, and doesn’t score much anyway

  24. Gary

    May 20, 2016 at 2:10 pm

    Who is a good replacement for Hall?

    • PMac

      hold hall only out this week

    • woodside_warrior

      I’d hold Hall, but if you must trade him out I’d go Montagna.

    fielded one doughnut last week – no choice (S Gray).

    This week will have at least one.

    Can I please get a thought on options below.

    1) Gaz + Wells > Shaw + Petracca + $47K = 2 likely doughnuts
    2) Gaz + Wells > Shaw + MacPherson + $155K = 3 likely doughnuts + cash
    3) Gaz + Wells > Shaw + Mathieson + $177 K = 3 likely doughnuts + more cash

      get macpherson in- break even is low, youll make money, probably for crouch or menadue.

      I’d then upgrade fanatsia, he will start losing you money. Houli though injured for ages, won’tlose you money at the moment. Id look at Vince or Simpson.

      • Daniel Traino

        May 20, 2016 at 6:11 pm

    • Wathdog

      May 20, 2016 at 7:12 pm

      Don’t know why you’re still keeping Lonergan. Is no one aware that Hall is not selected to play due to shoulder complications and failing the fitness test? Defence is good, A few of your midfielders are better off in the forward, rucks are decent, forward is okay (other than Stringer who is sometimes inconsistent and Adams isn’t playing either and probably won’t any time soon)

      • ALEXO
