    Only Coniglio and Pendlebury left in the running for the “Iron Man” award (consecutive >= 100 scores). Dunstan and Macrae (barely) drop out after scoring 78 and 99 respectively. Coniglio plays the Lions at home while Pendlebury plays Richmond at the ‘G.

      Scored 2006 an moved from 19000 to 12000 roughly so think 1930 a par score

      Fortune favours the brave, well done on the English call, I considered it but chickened out. Although not putting the C on Titch worked out.

    An absolutely disgusting week. Thanks Buddy, Gibbs, Titch (not his fault), Richards, Finlayson, Kelly, JOM and Tabs for the broken foot. Dropped 10000 spots this week. Disgusting.

  13. AFL Fantasy App is trash

    April 25, 2018 at 6:47 pm

    fantasy website has just deducted -8 from my score and adjusted rankings accordingly even though none of my players scores have adjusted and when added all together combine to the score which was originally present before the -8?????

    • Jag67

      April 25, 2018 at 6:58 pm

      Ditto, agree. Can’t even check player stats.

    Studs: 3 Fyfe 2 Heeney 1 Merrett
    Duds 3 Ellis 2 Jacobs 1 Mitchell
    Chop: Waterman, Holman.

    Merrett performed well for his first week in the team. Moved up to 34th overall and 200k to make another upgrade.

    • FevsBingles


      April 25, 2018 at 7:04 pm

      Hey good stuff man, that’s awesome.

      • JungleMuffin

        April 25, 2018 at 7:08 pm

        Cheers mate. I’d be surprised if I finish up high, given I’ve cost myself so many points with poor bench selections, but who knows, maybe I can climb a bit higher…

        • FevsBingles


          April 25, 2018 at 7:14 pm

          …and here I am at 14K+ haha

    Scored 1931, and dropped about 1100 spots to 4800th. For me, it is most frustrating to see you are going to lose most of your league games, and have to wait deep into Wednesday night to make rage trades.

    Looking to bring back Merrett and a rookie.
    Probably O’Meara is on the chop to do this. Even though his poor scores meet his BE, and I still think he has growth left, I can’t bring in Merrett without making it a two-week project if I chopped 2 rookies.

    • j

      April 25, 2018 at 7:14 pm

      Correction: scored 1961.

      unique studs: Fyfe

      duds: Martin, Neale, O’Meara, Titch, O’Shea, Whitfield, Waterman, Christiansen

    1934, a bad year by all reports.
    I slipped from 500 to 1300.

    I can accept poor and middling scores from rookies- that’s just the nature of the game, but Dusty 73, Whitfield 67, O’Meara 63, Jacobs 72, Franklin 55 (injured, I suppose), Petracca 69, Christensen 55 (he’s not a rookie!). All crap.

    • j

      April 25, 2018 at 7:15 pm

      Seems like we have most of these in common. I’d imagine our teams are pretty similar.

  18. Marcus

    April 25, 2018 at 7:15 pm

    Seeing the Rnd finished Wednesday it means we have only 2 days until the next Rnd starts. What are peoples Trades as I’m just thinking of Trading 2 Rookies out for another 2 Rookies. Mabe Waterman and O’Connor out for Guelfi and maybe Cumming if he comes in.

  20. Loki

    April 25, 2018 at 7:23 pm

    yeah, but Christensen and JOM, in their defense, were always only going to be stepping stone players.

    Round 5 Scores: 1909
    League Results: W, W
    Studs: Seed, Cogs, Heeney, Mclean
    Duds: McGrath (Backline) (been trying for 3 weeks to dump him, always a more pressing issue), Parker. Titch (C), Martin, JOM…I must have had all the underperformers in my midfield this week, Savage went awol & I had Doedee on the bench, Finlayson on the ground, Same with Nic Nat on & English tearing it up on the bench second week running.
    Chopping Block: McGrath (anybody but him), Fritch

    15k in the bank after bringing in Aish for Holman assuming he was going bye, bye for Barlow.

    Just not cutting the mustard atm sitting 6107.

    But the most important thing is:

    Bluebaggers for the wooden spoon. There is never a more deserving team to win such a highly credentialed accolade!!!
