    DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Yeo, Simmo, Seedsman, Blakely (O’Shea, Rice)
    MID: Titch, Neale, Gibbs, Merrett, Parker, Kelly, Brayshaw, Phillips (Mutch, Clarke)
    RUC: Gawn, Martin (McInerney, Cameron)
    FWD: McLean, D.Smith, Heeney, Billings, Bundy, Guelfi (Rioli, ZGL)

    103K in the bank. My mid is shot, looking at going O’Shea > Ridley and Kelly > Crouch or Rocky. Leaves 132k with rocky and 43k with Crouch. Then next week double downgrade and upgrade Rioli/Bundy/Guelfi to a premo mid if I get rocky. Thoughts? cheers.

      Probs gotta fix up the injured player. Depending on your bench depth, you would either upgrade to Brayshaw or downgrade to Smith. but depends on your depth.

    Is Powell Pepper an option? trying to get rid of TT and Tim Kelly this week and want to bring in Rockliff for TT which only leaves me with 525k.

    • Loki

      May 27, 2018 at 8:47 pm

      spend that $525 k, too much cash not in use.

      • T ind T

        May 27, 2018 at 8:58 pm

        I only have 524k If i get rid of Tim Kelly, so Rocky in and TT out gives me 47k and with Kelly gives me 524k

      Pearce will be playing through byes

      • Jimmyboi

        but his price will drop due to that.

        • Grovers Guns

          May 28, 2018 at 2:04 pm

          minimal drop though.
          If you trade one this week and then 1 next week – Pearce first but if you need cover over the byes, then keep him. 40points is better than a donut

    thoughts would be appreciated

      I think you take the $$$ hit and get rid of Barry, as he will end up hurting your team later in the year as he’s not going to play much and plus we are about to come into 3 trade weeks and you can easily gain the cash back over the next three weeks.

    1. Ronke and Coffield to rocky and rice
    2. Fritsch and Coffield to rocky and T Smith
    3. Taranto and Venables to rocky and T Smith

    1. 2 or 3?

    • The Official Oscar McInerney

      definately 1

    • Grovers Guns

      Why Ronke?
      Taranto and Coffield seem like you main concerns

    • DBoms

      May 28, 2018 at 7:59 am

      I think 3 personally.

      Venables is chewing up a bench spot which will be costly through the byes – and Tim Smith has shown enough to stick around for a while.
      Taranto will struggle with Kelly back in, I think. Even more so when Toby Greene returns.
      Coffield was listed as managed last week, so fingers crossed he comes back in this week.

    RUC: Gawn, Sam Jacobs
    FWD: Mclean, Devon Smith, Heeney, Fritsch, Gowers, Spargo (D. Forgarty, Giles-Langdon)

    Remaining Salary: $94K

    R12: 7 players
    R13: 9 players
    R14: 12 players

    At this stage although dusty and sam Jacobs drive me nuts each week (I’ll get rid of them at their bye), this week I’m looking to offload some more rookies. Looking to get rid of Tim Kelly in the midfield, D. Forgarty or Gowers in the forward line, and Murray or Doedee in defence. Looking to bring in Tim Smith, Tom Rockliff and possibly Angus Brayshaw. Trade suggestions and ideas involving other players are all welcome.

    • Matt

      May 27, 2018 at 9:43 pm

      I think Fogarty > Tim Smith (Going to make easy money) and T.Kelly > Rocky.

    • The Cricket

      May 27, 2018 at 11:15 pm

      From what Buckley said, it doesn’t look like Murray will be back any time soon (needs a rest from senior footy). From what Pyke said, Doedee’s doing a great job in the Crows backline – his JS looks good to go for the byes at this stage.

    • bj

      May 28, 2018 at 11:37 am

      Jacobs -> wits would be my trade in your position.

    Bigger priority to get in this week, Angus Brayshaw or Tim Smith? Can only get one

  15. Liam

    May 27, 2018 at 9:42 pm

    I have a few options this week (suggestions?)
    Kelly to rockliff
    Coffield to brayshaw


    Coflfield to brayshaw
    Marin to rockliff
    (More cash left)


    Rategulea to a rookie (275 and under, 2 k short of T Smith)
    Kelly to any player

    • Liam

      May 27, 2018 at 9:45 pm

      275 and under is if i get Mcrae which wouldn’t make sense this week, but getting tim smith isn’t smart as i have two Melbourne forwards in my team already.

    • Matt

      May 27, 2018 at 9:50 pm

      You should be able to afford T.Smith if you get Kelly to anyone? Ratugolea > Smith and Kelly > Rocky

      • Matt

        May 27, 2018 at 9:53 pm

        Tim smith is a great choice even if you have other melbourne fwds there, his Breakeven is -36. So he’ll go up at least another 50k if he gets around 75 i reckon. Getting rocky will leave you plenty to able to afford a rookie > Macrae in round 13.

    • KB

      May 28, 2018 at 1:53 am

      I would defs go 2, As Ronke has still money to gain and Venebles is sitting weight and Kelly will also restrict Taranto scoring ability.

    Hey everyone,
    Looking at two trade options:
    Both Kelly (Gee) and Cunico out

    Do I get in
    Walters and Rocky with 13k left using some dpp

    Or Smith(Mel) and one of the above with approx 290k left?

    The second option would mean the rookies fielded are down to Doedee, Plus 2 of Spargo, Guelfi, Phillips


    • T3

      May 27, 2018 at 10:32 pm

      Sorry, first option would leave the above rookies

            Walters has put up great numbers all year. One bad score of 68 and the other was an injury effected 11. I don’t know why he is not as highly traded in as Rocky, has a great role, one that is more consistent than Rocky’s.

    Gawn, Stef (Big o, Cameron)

    Smith, Heeney, Taranto, Allen, Billings, Gowers (Waterman, Lewis)

    Since when do players score better when they have lower tog? It applies to nicnat apparently. Although I do wish West coast would let nicnat play more than 65% tog next week.

    • Grovers Guns

      May 27, 2018 at 11:16 pm

      Because he is unfit and gets his points from his athleticism/speed/power rather than pure skills. He can only manage that in short bursts and then rests to top up tank

      • Gregga

        May 27, 2018 at 11:31 pm

        Getting 100 in 65 percent game time is something not worth whinging about you bingo players. Have a look at yourselves

      • PK

        May 28, 2018 at 12:14 am

        Nicnat is not unfit. He is fantastic in short bursts and is managed to extend his career, plus Lycett is highly underrated. Hes got skills son, hes a contested possession beast, brilliant tap ruckman, solid mark and has a good set shot. I bet he wants to play more tog however the coaching staff manage him, dont want to risk a long term injury.

        I found a heap wrong with everything you said then I saw you are a dockers supporter..

          May 28, 2018 at 11:13 am

          Dry your eyes princess
          If you think he has the tank and stamina to keep it up for 80+% of the game you are completely deluded. More time less PPM

          • PK

            May 28, 2018 at 12:08 pm

            If you have read into anything at west coast you would know he gets frustrated because the coaching staff have strict minutes for him on and off the ground. Even when hes dominating he has to leave the field as they are managing him for the whole season. He would be able to stay on the ground for that long but his risk of injury would go through the roof and they dont have to have him on the field he whole time because they have lycett.

            Damn salty freo supporters do my f**king head in 😂…

            I started with Sicily, then traded him out after his suspension figuring I couldn’t handle the games missed for an 80 point player, then brought him back in after his run of 100s only to get 71 & 80 again….

            All up he’s averaged 78 in my team and 107 out of it..

    • Grovers Guns

      May 28, 2018 at 11:15 am

      Walters will continue with midfield time which will more than likely increase as Brady Grey regains fitness and Harley Bennel possibly to come in

  26. Agnew

    May 28, 2018 at 12:45 am

    Brayshaw > Giro (if named)
    T.Kelly > Laird (via Seeds DPP)

    T.Kelly > Rocky

    Prefer 1 (has been brutal watching laird kill it), but leaves me with a worse bye structure

    3) Any other suggestions

    • KB

      May 28, 2018 at 1:56 am

      Depends if your chasing points or cash,

      Like for a win in leagues i would go 2. and you can always use those unused rookies as trades when we have the three trades next week.

      Or you could do the double downgrade this week and hit the byes with $$$$

      But Id be getting rid of Barry and Crowden first.

      Zac Fisher or Tracca IMO.
      I’ve got Christensen to and he’s last 2 weeks have been good. So you wouldn’t trade him.
      I’m looking at off loading him in rnd 13 for McLean if I can find the funds to do so.
      Hopefully triple downgrade next week and then McLean.

        Thanks Andy. That’s what I’ve currently done. Got $53k in bank. Looking at downgrades now to get Bundy to McLean in the coming weeks.

    DEF: Laird Yeo Whitfield Sicily Coffield Ridley (Cumming AUSTIN)
    MID: Mitchell Mcrae Danger Fyfe Merrett Martin Zorko Dow (Mutch Worpel)
    RUC: Martin Gawn (English Cameron)
    FWD: Menagola Gray D.Smith ROCKY Rioli T.Smith (Clarke ZGL)

    My trades this week are Lachie Murphy > Logan Austin & Rayner > Rockliff

    I am really hoping for some rookies to be brought back in for the next couple of rounds as i had 7 DNP’s this week. The Rookies with any real cash value i have at the moment are English & Dow, i am hoping to use those 2 for downgrade/upgrades in the coming weeks..

    IMO (and I have all bar Lambert);
    – TT (now Kelly is back)
    – Lambert (maybe for Rocky? Danger Rd 12?)
    – Parker (during his bye?)
    – Neale

    have gone Doedee to Lloyd and tkelly to mcLean. do I go with mclean or rocky?

    • Thrice

      May 28, 2018 at 10:34 am

      I would go McClean if you can get him. Waiting for one more game out of Rocky wont destroy you.

      I’m worried they will rotate Rocky and Gray a bit between mid and forward. So you might get the odd huge score when one of them gets a lot of mid time.

      That being said, they may leave Rocky in the mid because that is where he has been best last few rounds.

      Still McClean though

    • The Cricket

      May 28, 2018 at 12:55 pm

      Rocky over McLean imo
      The Pig is underpriced (unless he reverts to total consistent spudding which is unlikely). McLean is not.

      • Thrice

        May 28, 2018 at 2:49 pm

        Both have similar BE 70-80.

        So both likely to go up around the same price this week.

        McClean last 4: 143, 101, 104, 152
        Rocky last 4: 78,43,127,106.

        Not going to hurt seeing one more game out of rocky if your alternative is McClean and you got the money for it.

        Just not sold on 2 midfield games being a lock for Rocky. Bare in mind the guy got dropped and scored some pretty horrific scores.

        Some valid points though. Rocky may go beast mode and score 130 for the rest of the year.

        PS im bringing in Rocky this week haha. But I have McClean

    Looking to trade Coffield, to either
    1. Austin
    2. Rice.
    Would like to pick the one with the best Job security. As I have a handful none playing rookies stinking up the bench, and don’t want another. What do you guys think?

    • PowerAde

      May 28, 2018 at 10:48 am

      I like Austin, watched him when at port and he only had a settled defence stopping him from playing more games

    RE: The Chosen One

    I haven’t heard from The Chosen One since preseason when he graced us with his almighty knowledge of dreamteam and told everyone there teams where shithouse.

    So in The Chosen One’s absence I thought I might update people on his team.
    League Rank: 16/18 (note 2 teams unchanged since round 1)
    Ranking: Not anywhere close to top 10,000.
    Capable of fielding a whole team? No

    If only he shared his brilliant trade wisdom with us all and we could have also paid 400k for Ah Chee to score 40 like he did.

    Good Luck the Chosen One

      There are always guys like him around… being good at DT is for doing, not for saying. And it’s fleeting. One year you’re a god, the next year the same strategy dishes you up poo. It happens.

      Feel for the guy, as our fortunes are pretty much identical this year. Usually I’m good for top 2000 or so, this year I’m ahead of the 100,000 ghost teams and not much else.

      • Alan J

        May 28, 2018 at 12:09 pm

        Ditto Simon..
        I’ve never been great, usually always top 3%, but this year I fluffed it early, played catch up quite well, but the last couple weeks the likes of Hurn, Taranto, Sicily and Kelly playing 20 below their average (among many others) I’ve dropped back big time..

      • PK

        May 28, 2018 at 12:15 pm

        Yeah this is my worst season in 10 years. Think my first team was in 2006 but i didnt take it seriously until 2008. Best result was 291 and worst was 13k in that space. 25k overall now but think im set up ok for the byes and will hopefully get that rank up a bit.

        • PK

          May 28, 2018 at 12:19 pm

          Worst part is ive taught a mate from work everything i know on how to play the game (second year in, he was around 100k overall last season) and his rank overall is 762 😂 and his side is pretty killer. Just gotta laugh hey, FMDT.

          • Alan J

            May 28, 2018 at 1:16 pm

            Well at least you know what your’e doing, sounds like luck has been against you, I’ve just made some terrible decisions, in hindsight of course..

    • Euman

      Good stuff thanks for update on that bozo – I think his name was The Chosen Won wasn’t it?

      • Thrice

        May 28, 2018 at 12:50 pm

        Ah yep you’re right Euman . Buy rounds usually bring the veterans back into play.

      Option A

  38. Smile

    May 28, 2018 at 10:42 am

    Play Ronke or t Smith F6?

    • James

      May 28, 2018 at 11:05 am

      Probably doesn’t matter, both set for big games against Carlton and the doggies respectively

  39. James

    May 28, 2018 at 10:56 am

    Walters, Brayshaw or Rockliff

    • Alan J

      May 28, 2018 at 12:05 pm

      I’m thinking of doubling down and getting 2 of them in this week and forgo a rookie downgrade..

      • The Cricket

        May 28, 2018 at 1:17 pm

        Me too, Alan – I’m seriously tempted to grab two premos this week instead of an upgrade/downgrade … but I know forgoing the tasty cashcow options available is a mistake that I’ll probably regret lol
        It’s a reaction to a particularly shitty round this weekend. Topped off by the growing realisation that, again, bloody Billings will probably survive in my team! Just when I had it all beautifully planned out he puts out a sort of decent 89 and Taranto completely disgraces himself for the third week running. He’s gone!
        Funny how three days in fantasy-world can change your fortunes and your outlook hey

        • Alan J

          May 28, 2018 at 1:30 pm

          Yeah, tough week for a couple of us, but seems like a lot of others killed it..
          For me, the equation is basically Brayshaw +49k, DBJ +85k, Walters +84k or SMITH +364k

      • James

        May 28, 2018 at 1:41 pm

        But if you had to take one, who would it be?? I’m going Coffield to Cogs/Pendles/Selwood, then Kelly to one of those three

        • Alan J

          May 28, 2018 at 1:47 pm

          Rockliff for sure..

          If they all average 100 the next 4 weeks, Rocky gets you 400 points, the other 2 get you 300..

          • James

            May 28, 2018 at 2:21 pm

            Cheers, that’s the way I was leaning

    DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Seedsman, Murray, Doedee, Rice (Pearce, Cumming)
    MID: Macrae, Titch, Conigs, Ross, Duncan, Zerrett, Kelly, Phillips (Banfield, Mutch)
    Ruck: Gawn, Nankervis (McInerny, Cameron)
    FWD: McLean, Heeney, Taranto, Petracca, Fritsch, Rioli (Murphy, ZGL)
    Bank – $344K

    Waiting on report of Seedsman’s injury, Taranto’s quad, and whether or not Murray comes back in (Did he play in the Magoos?), so my planned trades might be out the window.

    Currently: Kelly > Rocky, and then maybe Banfield to Angus Brayshaw.
