Team Sheets – Round Six

After the hectic week we had with games played on both Tuesday and Wednesday, it’s nice to resume with normal fixtures this week, come and check out all the key INs and OUTs for round six with Jelms!

Welcome back for Team Sheets here in round six, where will will run through the most relevant fantasy INs and OUTs. With no Thursday night footy and the last game of this round being played on Sunday, we have a standard week again! This week we have a few relevant cash cows coming in at a great time to move on some of those that may have reached their break evens or are missing with injuries.

Kicking off with the big INs of the round, we start with James Worpel (Mid $182,000), affectionately known as ‘worpedo’ who comes in for the Hawks. Worpel has earned his debut on the back of some solid VFL form and is a contested ball winner. Unfortunately for Stefan Martin owners, Oscar McInerney (Ruck $170,000) is also set to debut this week. The 204cm listed Lions big man looks set to spend a majority of time up forward, with stints chopping out for Stef in the ruck. Our third debutant for this week is actually the Giants first graduate from their Academy to join senior ranks, Nicholas Shipley (Mid $170,000). Shipley provides another option for a downgrade, with many coaches now looking to move on some almost maxed out cash cows. Charlie Spargo (Fwd/Mid $214,000) and Jack Petruccelle (Fwd/Mid $196,000) also make their debuts for the Demons and Eagles respectively.

NEAFL specialist Michael Barlow (Mid/Fwd $667,000) comes in for his first game of the season following some impressive outings in the twos. The Crows welcome back midfield dynamo Matt Crouch (Mid $721,000) who returns from his layoff with injury. Crouch has been solely missed in the Crows engine room already missing brother Brad and Rory Sloane. Zac Langdon (Fwd $220,000) returns to the senior lineup this week after missing the past three games with a hand injury. Dom Barry (Mid $275,000) returns this week for the Power following his round four omission.

James Sicily will serve his one match suspension this week.

Leading the key OUTs for our round six team sheets is resident bad boy James Sicily (Def/Fwd $554,000) who misses this week through suspension following a sicily-esque stomp on Shaun Atley in the Hawks loss to the Roos. Joining Sicily on the sidelines is popular forward selection, Christian Petracca (Fwd/Mid $550,000). Petracca features in nearly a quarter of teams at this point in the season and will miss this week. The Swans will require a fair restructure this week with the enigmatic Lance Franklin (Fwd $698,000) and Dan Hannebery (Mid $571,000) both set to miss.

Thankfully for coaches this week, we haven’t lost too many fantasy relevant players to injury or suspension, whilst managing to gain a nice crop of new cash cows to consider! Coaches here in Perth should come down to the live show tonight, doors opening at 7pm and the show starting at 8pm AWST. As always, good luck to everyone this week, feel free to send through any questions you may on twitter @JelmsDT or start up discussion in the forum below!

    Any risk of Stef being a late out with MCInerney coming in?

    • Jelms

      April 26, 2018 at 6:54 pm

      Nah no real risk, Oscar in to play as a tall forward.

    • Ben

      April 27, 2018 at 12:11 am

      No risk of him being out but could hurt his scoring

  2. Alex

    April 26, 2018 at 6:40 pm

    Who goes first?

    O’Shea BE 28
    Gowers BE 34

    • Belly

      April 26, 2018 at 6:50 pm

      Nothing really in it, I would base it on who you are bringing in and where they fit position wise and if the trade involves dpp action how does your team look at the end of it bench cover wise.

      • Alex

        April 26, 2018 at 6:54 pm

        Whoever goes, Mcinerney in via DPP, English on field

        If I trade Gowers, I’d be fielding Sam Murray and Coffield

        If I trade O’Shea, I’d be fielding Coffield and Banfield

        • Daniel

          April 27, 2018 at 9:59 am

          Then Gowers has to go, seeing as your fielding Murray and Coffield.

    • Jelms

      April 26, 2018 at 6:55 pm

      I’d be moving on O’Shea first, but both are nearing the end of their roles as cash cows.

    • Ben

      April 26, 2018 at 8:34 pm

      Think can got injured so would trade him first

  3. Matt

    April 26, 2018 at 6:55 pm

    Holman for Zerret or trade Petracca?

    • Jelms

      April 26, 2018 at 6:57 pm

      Really comes down to how confident you are in your bench covering Petracca or who you could bring in for him! That said, it looks like the time is right to jump on Zach.

    • Ben

      April 27, 2018 at 12:09 am

      Wouldn’t trade holmen yet bit of coin still to be made an it only sounds like a week for petracca so would hold both an try another way to get merrit

      • ChaSeq

        April 27, 2018 at 1:00 am

        Holding until maturity wastes cash. Holman will make less per week now than fresh cows. Having said that he’ll make more than anyone not playing or losing value, so, unless you think Petracca will be a keeper, it’s time for Petracca to go.

  4. Floggers

    April 26, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    Who do I trade out first, Naughton, Finlayson or L Murphy?

    • Ben

      April 27, 2018 at 12:04 am

      Naughton is ready to cash out if Murphy not named next week would move him on as well

  5. Peter

    April 26, 2018 at 7:05 pm

    Carnage again. Stretching necks and moving players around to dodge doughnuts. Hope no late out’s for my team. Positive is mclnerney being named. Hopefully makes a few bucks. I guess most ppl have him on ruck bench seeing as thou he was a emergency from round 1…… Who to field out of poholke or Rayner. Yep I’m stretching to field 22 and this is what I’m left with lol.

  6. Zach

    April 26, 2018 at 7:06 pm

    Curnow, Macrae or Danger?

    • Paul

      April 26, 2018 at 7:29 pm

      Flip a coin

    • AndyV

      April 26, 2018 at 9:00 pm

      You’d have to back Danger to average more over the season, Macrae is looking good too though.

      • Simon

        April 27, 2018 at 9:10 am

        I’ve had Macrae every year on account of him being a FWD and most years he shat me at one point or another. Don’t think you can justify bringing him in as a straight MID… or at least I can’t.

    • Ben

      April 26, 2018 at 11:59 pm

      Think cornow is the real deal contested ball winner tackles an runs hard to space McCrae is good form think teams might start putting some time into him. Danger playing forward good hurt his scoring a little I’d probably pick McCrae but cornow would be a great pick at his price.

  7. Paul

    April 26, 2018 at 7:28 pm

    Who should i trade and who should i keep on my bench this week?: Franklin vs Petracca

    • JungleMuffin

      April 26, 2018 at 7:42 pm

      Talk of Buddy out for a month.

      • AndyV

        April 26, 2018 at 9:04 pm

        You sure its a month, I read somewhere 1 week. Don’t have him in fantasy but would mean I have a decision to make in SC

        • JungleMuffin

          April 26, 2018 at 10:02 pm

          Pretty sure I read a new article over the last day or so that said 3-4, just had a look but can’t find it. The other reports I’ve seen suggest 1 week possibly longer.

          He hadn’t been able to train during the week sonce round 1, and apparently he did it even worse this weekend, so I doubt 1 week off is going to fix it. If I had Buddy and had to bet my house on it, I’d be trading.

          Don’t take my word for gospel though, I can’t find the article so I’m not 100% sure.

          • AndyV

            April 26, 2018 at 10:24 pm

            ok thanks, could be anything from 1 week to 4 then. May just hold on to him

    • gf

      April 26, 2018 at 7:42 pm

      Franklin’s injury probably means he could be out longer than Petracca.

  8. Jimbo

    April 26, 2018 at 7:32 pm

    Trying to trade out fritsch for mcinerny via english but website or app aint lettin me… anyone having this problem?

    • Loki

      April 26, 2018 at 7:51 pm

      Im being told fritsch is a red dot, and a few other ins are “injured”

    • Charlies Angels

      April 27, 2018 at 12:36 am

      I made the same trade and it worked for me.

  9. Tom

    April 26, 2018 at 7:33 pm

    Upgrade Holman or Kelly?

  10. gf

    April 26, 2018 at 7:41 pm

    Lots of potential fresh meat this weekend.
    How many of them actually play, and if they have real JS is the question.
    Worpel may be the pick of them. Also interesting to see how Barlow goes.

    • JungleMuffin

      April 26, 2018 at 8:56 pm

      Problem is they’re mostly mids, bit I’m upgrading my mid player and downgrading my forward :(

  11. Josh

    April 26, 2018 at 7:41 pm

    Is this a silly move? Nank to McInerney fielding English in the ruck. Next week I’ll be able to downgrade a rook and upgrade another forward rookie to Grundy switching him with English. I have concerns for Nank; has yet to ton up, no easy matchups in the near future, Soldo potentially coming in and the short break for him.

    • loki

      April 26, 2018 at 8:15 pm

      “next week I will make this trade”, the most famous last words in fantasy football

      • Josh

        April 26, 2018 at 8:21 pm

        Worse comes to worse I play English at R2 again which isn’t that big of a deal for me.

      • JungleMuffin

        April 26, 2018 at 10:06 pm

        Excellent call.

    • Belly

      April 26, 2018 at 8:47 pm

      I like it, Nank isn’t a keeper and like you say worst case play English again.

    • A smart pupper

      April 26, 2018 at 10:06 pm

      I’ve got the same situation and am doing the same. Gives me enough cash to bring in Gray and Merrett next week. I’ll keep English R2 until he has a bad day. Having said that I don’t think Nank has been shocking: decent start to the year and has allowed me to assess the other ruck options rather than setting/forgetting from R1. He was always going to spud up against the best ruckmen.

    April 26, 2018 at 7:56 pm

    Wtf should I do with buddy… will he be out for more than the one week?

    • gf

      April 26, 2018 at 8:01 pm

      Trade! I’ve taken Heeney. Menegola is another option. Barlow also, but might be best to see how he goes.

  13. Liam

      At least give people your thoughts about which ones you’re looking at trading, otherwise we’re pretty much playing your team for you.

      • M8

        April 26, 2018 at 9:08 pm

        Could possibly try and get English on field in the forwards and get Whitfield down back

  16. St guns

    April 26, 2018 at 9:03 pm

    Help please!
    What’s best option
    1 Buddy+Tkelly out Fyfe +Gray
    2 Brayshaw+Rayner out Mcinerney and Gray in,English on field hold Buddy
    3Buddy+Brayshaw out Gray and Zerrett in

    1+3 I can’t get English on field but don’t hold Buddy but he’s my best fwd so probably should hold…ffs I dunno!

  17. Mike

    April 26, 2018 at 9:15 pm

    Which Option
    1.T.Kelly & Petracca out for Zerret & Mclean
    2. Holman & Waterman out for Zerret & McInerney (English forward)

    • Ben

      April 26, 2018 at 11:49 pm


  18. Jimmyboi

    April 26, 2018 at 9:36 pm

    which debutant has the highest ceiling?

    • Ben

      April 27, 2018 at 12:20 am

      Worpel an spargo

    • Ben

      April 27, 2018 at 12:21 am

      Not great job security though

    • Ben

      April 27, 2018 at 12:28 am

      Barry in this week so hold him. worpel an shipley good go allright but not good job security would probly wait a week c how they go spargo is another to watch this weekend if he get a run

    • Simon

      April 27, 2018 at 9:13 am

      Would love to see the Milkmen chime in on this week’s debutants

  19. Dylan

    April 26, 2018 at 9:53 pm

    Will Curnow keep this up all year and average 110+??

    • Ben

      April 26, 2018 at 11:47 pm

      Contested ball winner an tackle’s I’d back him in

    • David C

      April 27, 2018 at 7:23 am

      He’s never done it before, don’t think he can keep it up.

      • Dylan

        April 27, 2018 at 8:11 am

        Has he now taken Gibbs old role as a ball winner though? He isn’t tagging anymore. Getting 25-30 touches a week and 5-12 tackles which is resulting in 100+ scores

  20. TB

    April 26, 2018 at 10:29 pm

    Which premo forward to get in for Greene? Can afford any and already own Heeney, Billings and Taranto.
    Gray seemed an obvious choice but a looming Jacobs tag has me cautious.

    • St guns

      April 26, 2018 at 10:37 pm

      Id be getting Gray.
      Consider Walter’s McLean Menegola

    • Another Arctic Flying wombat Panda of Doom named Drowning fish

      April 26, 2018 at 10:40 pm

      Gray seems to be dominating but with Ryder out atm, id look at Westhoff. Otherwise jump on Devon Smith or Hogan

  21. Bavan

    April 26, 2018 at 10:54 pm

    Sideways Petracca to Deledio or go up to Mclean/Gray/Menegola – Lids saves me about 100k

    • Ben

      April 26, 2018 at 11:45 pm

      Lids is high risk but if he stays on the park could push for a top 6 forward IMO in saying that I’d pass

  22. BobTheBuilder

    April 26, 2018 at 11:54 pm


    1) Billings & Whitfield to Gray & Zerrett
    2) Venebles & Billings/Whitfield to McInerney & Zerrett (Puts English on my field)

    If option 2 do I dump Billings or Whitfield?

    • Belly

      April 27, 2018 at 12:01 am

      Find an option 3.

  23. Bavan

    April 26, 2018 at 11:56 pm

    who will average more – Menegola or Gray or Mclean? who is a better pick

    • Belly

      April 27, 2018 at 12:03 am

      Gray or McLean, depends if you care about Ports bye.

    • Ben

      April 27, 2018 at 12:18 am

      Grey will be if he stays in the middle McLean (consistent) an menegola(high ceiling) will average about the same IMO

      • Alex

        April 27, 2018 at 5:55 am

        I would try get all three, I rate the top 7-8 fwds as follows:

        Franklin (if fit), Heeney, Gray, McLean, Walters, Menegola, Smith – who knows if Billings will come good. He is presently on my long list to shed

  24. Mark

    April 27, 2018 at 12:21 am

    Gday lads, need some help.

    Dow > Shipley or Worpel

    And then either

    Fritch > Gray
    Brayshaw/Barry > seedsman


    • Ben

      April 27, 2018 at 12:38 am

      Not great job security for worpel an Shipley id wait a week if u can if not I’d go worpel spargo is another to keep an eye on if he gets a run. Barry named this week so hold him

    • Alex

      April 27, 2018 at 6:01 am

      I would get Higgins, though if you are set on it, get Gray, as long as your are comfortable that if he gets Jacobs he will struggle to score well this week

  25. DBoms

    April 27, 2018 at 12:26 am

    Zerrett or Seedsman?

    Either way will be in the mids. Have I missed the boat on Seedsman? I think maybe Zerrett is too good to pass up..?

    • Ben

      April 27, 2018 at 12:41 am

      Zerrit why u can but seedsmen a great pick as well

    • kobe bryant

      April 27, 2018 at 1:02 am

      Definitely Zerret, will score more points so get him in first. Also think Seedsmans scoring will be affected by crouch coming back in and eventually sloane.

  26. kobe bryant

    April 27, 2018 at 1:00 am

    Curnow vs Fyfe vs Macrae??
    Leaning towards Fyfe currently

    • Shags

      April 27, 2018 at 1:36 am

      Fyfe looks good at the moment. Curnow for pod, and same with Madras.

      Maybe choose the one with the best bye round status.

  27. Shags

    April 27, 2018 at 1:11 am

    Trade out Kelly (BE 53 but avg 81) or Holman (BE 44 average 67). Whoever I don’t trade is on the field.

    I can use either to reach Zerrett, and can’t see any reason to trade Kelly when has averaging so high, whilst Holman has had a shocker or two, but Holman has a slightly higher potential to earn more as a cash cow with a lower value and slightly lower BE.

    • kobe bryant

      April 27, 2018 at 1:14 am

      I’d say Holman, would prefer Kelly on field and you’ll probably be trading him out soon anyway.

  28. Shags

    April 27, 2018 at 1:29 am

    Stephenson, Banfield, Guelfi, Crowden.

    Can play 2 on the field.

    • Alex

      April 27, 2018 at 6:23 am

      Not Crowded

      Banfield and Guelfi IMO, Stepheson might find it harder v Tigs

  29. tc

    April 27, 2018 at 3:47 am

    merret, menegola or gray

    • Bradelz

      April 27, 2018 at 10:41 am

      Same predicament!

  30. Bradelz

    April 27, 2018 at 5:59 am

    Hey guys which option
    Finlayson and Jacobs (nm) for shipley and merrett
    Jacobs (nm) and christensen for shipley and gray

  31. Riotchess

    April 27, 2018 at 9:14 am

  32. Tom

    April 27, 2018 at 9:58 am

    Fritsch > McInerney, puts English in my fwd line
    A. Brayshaw > Zerrett
    Brayshaw has BE of 31, but if he scores 40’s again won’t go up by that much

  33. Mark

    April 27, 2018 at 10:32 am

    Laird, Bonner, Lloyd, Murray, Coffield, Finlayson (Dodee and Mirra)

    Mitchell, Macrae, Congilio, Fyfe, Martin, A Brayshaw (freo), Kelly, Holeman (Dow, Barry)

    Gawn, Martin

    Billings, Smith, Christensen,Heeney, Fritch, Guelifi (Rat and Waterman)

    Gday Lads. Above is my team, and wondering what options I should take.

    $233K in the bank.

    1. Christensen > Tim English (284K in bank) and then go Holeman/Brayshaw to Seedsman/Zerrett or Bonner to Seedsman/Kade Simpson

    2. Dow > Shipley or Worpel and then go Holeman, Brayshaw or Barry to Seedsman/Zerrett or Bonner to Seedsman/Kade Simpson.

    3. Any of your suggestions.

    Cheers guys.
