    I don’t understand how people were even questioning trading Treloar. Even with some off games still averaging nearly 95. There were far bigger issues especially in regards to rookies.

      No idea. I was trying to talk people out of trading Treloar on the My Team chat. Hardly panic stations with his scores of the first 3 rounds, especially because it was more his time forward than form, injury etc.

      I agree. People have got some weird strategies, especially at this stage of the season.

    Dropped from 94 to 120 after tonights game, which obviously doesn’t mean too much given people could have played more than 4 players. I just want to see my rank going up, not down, especially with avoiding Doedee’s 50 :(

    I am predicting Rockliff to go big soon. His disposals in the second last week where impressive and now given a follower role.

    • Leeroy

      April 14, 2018 at 11:40 am

      My eye is on him this week. Score and possessions increased on the weekend and named in the modfield apparently. Break even is still 140s. If he goes 90+ I’ll consider bringing him in. We need to remember he is priced at like 80? So if he averages 90 he is a bargain

    • lizard-of-oz

      April 14, 2018 at 1:14 pm

      in one of my draft leagues he has offered to the field.
      I have put up D Tyson or Hannerbery.

      April 14, 2018 at 2:38 pm

      It’s a shame he goes back on the ball – from this point its now less likely he’ll get FWD status.

      • Leeroy

        April 14, 2018 at 3:13 pm

        Yep going back to midfield may take away the chance of him getting forward status, but still, even though he is starting mid he might spend 40-50% of the game forward

    April 14, 2018 at 12:33 pm

    After reverse trading P Seedsman half an hour before game time, because of the weather; I was feeling pretty good when he was on 45 half way thru the 3rd qtr. My reaction when I saw he score of 119 at the end, just sums up my season so far.

    • The Cricket

      April 14, 2018 at 2:59 pm

      LOL someone suggested recently that we could all be randomly locked out at some point prior to official lockout – to prevent us from the last-minute-brain-farting-panic that sets in and makes us stuff around with our well planned and researched trades. This should be random and unscheduled, any time in the last couple of hours before lockout. Perhaps we need to be protected from ourselves …

      • Darren

      I would have been better off playing Banfield instead of Whitfield LOL.

      • JungleMuffin

        April 14, 2018 at 9:58 pm

        I’ll admit, it did bring me some sort of sadistic pleasure seeing him get pinged for HTB 3 times early in the game. The scoreboard in my head just kept going ding -6, ding -6, ding -6!

    • Justin11

      April 14, 2018 at 10:20 pm

      Have you got Holman? I’ve got the daily double, Holman and Waterman. Things just keep getting worse…

      • ChaSeq

        April 15, 2018 at 2:17 am

        I’ve got both of those. Especially annoying for Waters as I’ve got Crowden (and Fritsch) on the bench. I’m going to slip a few spots this week.

      • JungleMuffin

        April 15, 2018 at 2:33 pm

        Yyyeeeppp. Holman, Brayshaw on the field, Banfield Crowden on the bench.

    • Justin11

      April 14, 2018 at 5:18 pm

      I’m surprised he managed to get 66. It looked like he was spending most of his time on the bench.

      • The Cricket

        April 14, 2018 at 6:16 pm

        Banfield was on him until half-time, then went to Shiel. Lyon is pretty stoked with Banfield – his job security looks good atm :)

        • ChaSeq

          April 15, 2018 at 2:26 am

          Lol. So kept his opponent to 26 (Whitfield 4 first half; Shiel 22 second half). They score a total of 119 in their other halves. I’ll bet Lyon’s stoked.

      Went him over coffield for the xtra cash. Risked no def bench cover but worked out. Can go brayshaw -> this week maybe

        English on the bench is painful hey!? But I can’t bring myself to not have emergency cover (been there, done that – horrible when disaster strikes). Let’s hope another cheapie ruck rookie’s selected soon lol

          April 15, 2018 at 10:43 am

          Swapped him to the forward line and brought in a rookie ruck/forward so I can cover for 1 week suspensions or injuries. Just the late outs to worry about.

  14. lizard-of-oz

    April 14, 2018 at 5:28 pm

    Josh Kelly..groin…must trade.
    I went Sidebottom…only second productive trade 2018.

    • The Cricket

      April 14, 2018 at 6:27 pm

      Well done, Sidebum’s been flying under the radar – great pick-up!
      His consistency is pretty fine – more +100’s last season than Gibbs, for example, and a helluva lot cheaper. I don’t have him atm but may grab him soon (no forced trades allowing)
      … and he’s exciting to watch too. Fond memories of yelling “Give it to Sidey!” at the tv screen

  15. Justin11

    April 14, 2018 at 5:45 pm

    Coniglio did a better job than Kelly would have, but Whitfield is now the problem.
    Anyone else who has him thinking of moving him on?

    • Leeroy

      April 15, 2018 at 3:30 am

      Up til this game Whitfield was averaging 100.7

      This game whilst his fantasy score was average he had 23 possessions….he is still finding the ball, way too early to jump off

      • Justin11

        April 15, 2018 at 11:11 am

        Yes. After Holman’s effort it seems I have more pressing problems anyway.

    Would love to see Merrett find some kind of form in the next week or so, would be so juicy to go from Holman to Zerret if he was back to 100+ scores.
    Just imagine!

      I nearly traded him out

    • LW

      April 15, 2018 at 6:36 pm

      I traded him out. Yeah it was a bad move in the end but he could have just as easily maintained his form of the previous 2 weeks. Still avoided losing 20k so it wasn’t the worst decision. People can laugh all they like – if he had another stinker people would be laughing at those that held faith.

  23. Tmac

    April 15, 2018 at 1:44 pm

    Well pals, this week backed in my under performing premos Treloar and Merrett. I decided to trade out O’Connor and Ryan for Coffield and Ratugolea. Treloar rewarded us with 135 and Merrett looks good for 120+, back in your premos!

  24. JungleMuffin

    I played it smart this week and dumped Merrett for Lyons,

    Even though i lost 50 points for this round, Lyons hit his BE, Merrett will drop more cash and i can do an upgrade with extra money,

    Lyons back to Merrett and then a rookie to a premium.
