    Which one is the more important trade this week:

    Jacobs to Grundy
    or
    Dusty to Josh Kelly

    • Jake

      June 22, 2018 at 4:23 pm

      Grundy

      • Charles

        June 22, 2018 at 6:21 pm

        Jacobs to Grundy will get you more points, but Josh Kelly is going to rise in cash whereas grundy is likely to drop a couple k

  2. Liam

    June 22, 2018 at 4:22 pm

    Who would you bring in for Spargo?

    Wines vs Cognilio vs Kelly vs Oliver?

    Cheers

    • Ben

      June 22, 2018 at 5:57 pm

      I would go Cognilio and Kelly first, hard to split those two though

  3. Tom

    June 22, 2018 at 4:27 pm

    Oliver v Pendlebury?

  4. Lewie-14

    June 22, 2018 at 4:51 pm

    Macrae > Pendles/Treloar
    Austin > J.Smith
    Undecided on last upgrade out of :
    Jacobs > Grundy with $138k left
    or
    Parker > Pendles/Treloar with $295k left

    • Demonetise

      June 22, 2018 at 5:54 pm

      Treloar and Grundy. Both clearly top 8/2, whereas Pendles might not be. If you wait a week on Pendles you might decide one of Kelly/Oliver/Phillips etc are a better option. Parker/Jacobs similar priority to get rid of.

      This assumes you’ll have the same number on field this week. If you’ve got a backup ruck, probably go Pendles instead of Grundy.

      • Lewie-14

        June 22, 2018 at 6:04 pm

        Going Grundy this week only leaves me with 16 where pendles or Treloar give me 17. Can try pickup Grundy following week

  5. Jarrod

    June 22, 2018 at 5:19 pm

    Angus Brayshaw or Crisp lads?

    • Bjorn

      June 22, 2018 at 5:47 pm

      You’d have to pick Crisp surely – in great form and should get instant reward vs Carlton. Brayshaw has shown he’s got a nice ceiling, but that 47 vs Collingwood is too putrid to ignore.

  6. Loz

    June 22, 2018 at 5:33 pm

    Would you go Wines over Kelly if it meant you could go Doedee to Simpson in one trade next week?

    • Ben

      June 22, 2018 at 5:59 pm

      That’s hard, I always like to get the best though so no I would go Kelly and see what you can do next week. Hard to plan ahead as well, you never know when you’re going to get an injury.

  7. Ben

    June 22, 2018 at 5:56 pm

    Thoughts on Giro at 253k? I don’t care about byes and I need a downgrade, and he seems to have great JS (and I have Smith already). Would be a good M10 , and I don’t like risking it with rookies like Dawson who haven’t played yet. Cheers

    • peterthomas25

      June 22, 2018 at 6:33 pm

      Sort of feels like you’ve missed the boat. You could just wait a week since Giro has the bye and see how Dawson goes.

  8. James

    June 22, 2018 at 5:56 pm

    kelly, zork, sidey, oliver, pendles?

    • Ben

      June 22, 2018 at 5:57 pm

      Kelly or sidey, probably Kelly

    • peterthomas25

      June 22, 2018 at 6:28 pm

      Kelly

  9. Shags

    June 22, 2018 at 6:00 pm

    How must have a rookie is J.smith?

    Dont care about scores this week, but with Macrae to sell definitely can afford 2 premiums (Treloar and Kelly).
    I do also want to strengthen my def bench (especially since new recruit Redman might be injured).

    Current trades Dd > Redman
    Cummings > J.smith
    Macrae > Treloar

    Thoughts?

    • Bjorn

      June 22, 2018 at 6:10 pm

      Wouldn’t consider him must have – probably won’t be needing him to play on field after this week and at this stage cash generation is less important. It’s more that lots of people are offloading one or more of Doedee/Austin/Rice/Kelly and he’s a perfectly timed downgrade target.

      So are you wondering whether to get 2 premiums or 1 of them + Smith?

      • Shags

        June 22, 2018 at 6:22 pm

        Well this week is a write off for me anyway. So would be looking to double upgrade next week instead. I already went Redman instead of J.smith, but, Redman was on crutches end of game. Already carrying cummings as a d8 spud. Carrying 2 def bench spuds is a bit awkward.

        But yes thats what Im saying, get J.smith instead of a premium upgrade, concerned rookies with ok JS are drying up.

        Cash generation is still very important.

  10. Ryan

    June 22, 2018 at 6:13 pm

    Thoughts on Oliver? Top 8 mid?

    • peterthomas25

      June 22, 2018 at 6:31 pm

      Hate the guy. But likely top 10 mid.

  11. peterthomas25

    June 22, 2018 at 6:28 pm

    Byrne-Jones or Sharenberg?

    • Jimmyboi

      June 22, 2018 at 6:39 pm

      BJ

  12. yeahrowdyhitthat

    June 22, 2018 at 6:36 pm

    Whitfield + 50k or Crisp and why?

    Really torn here, a lot made of Crisp’s last 5 average but it’s inflated by an outlier of 147 and has only 4 other tons. 6 scores of 85 or less, but recent form is great and I think he has the better run home – he only has two true away games remaining and they’re against Gold Coast and Freo.

    Aside from those 3 weeks of tags, Whitfield has been really consistent, with 1 just one other score under 85 and 6 tons. Seems more reliable.

    • AF Rising Star

      June 22, 2018 at 6:50 pm

      I agree with u. Whitfield

    • Miyagi-san

      June 22, 2018 at 6:50 pm

      No bad choice here mate. I like whit – have had him most of year. Big factor may be what are you using that 50k for?? Crisp probably at close to max price now

  13. Jay

    June 22, 2018 at 6:41 pm

    Whitfield or Wingard

    • AF Rising Star

      June 22, 2018 at 6:45 pm

      Both are good value. IMO Whitfield because hes probably a top 8 defender, Wingard may not be a top 8 forward

      • Ryan

        June 22, 2018 at 6:52 pm

        Whitfield easy top 6 defender I reckon

        Laird, Yeo, Lloyd, Crisp, Whitfield, Simpson

    • Miyagi-san

      June 22, 2018 at 6:47 pm

      Like whit for the reasons AF said. Also with kelly back in whit drops down the tagging list a little further

  14. Miyagi-san

    June 22, 2018 at 6:46 pm

    Booting seedyman, parker and dusty this week.

    J.Smith one addition – then can add any 2 mids – top 8 must haves and preferably playing this week.

    Currently tossing up 2 of J.Kelly/Treloar/Sidey, leaving towards kelly and treloar but concerned with tags? Would Sidebottom or any others be better bets?

    Current mids are titch, curnow, conig, mclean, gaff

    • AF Rising Star

      June 22, 2018 at 6:48 pm

      Its what I wud do. Looks VG

  15. AF Rising Star

    June 22, 2018 at 6:47 pm

    Got a conundrum. Help pls.
    Rice > Whitfield
    Or
    Doedee > Josh Kelly

    • Miyagi-san

      June 22, 2018 at 6:55 pm

      Hey mate. Give DD a high five and a cheery goodbye-free swing upgrading him to jelly vs the lions and with a be of only 93 he wont be any cheaper any time soon. Reports from StK are that rice is likely right for next week and he still has cash to make for you

    • yeahrowdyhitthat

      June 22, 2018 at 6:56 pm

      I’m actually trying to hold Rice too – he has more money to make assuming he gets up next week and the rookies may dry up.

      So Doedee > Kelly for me.

  16. Rocky Road

    June 22, 2018 at 6:55 pm

    Crisp and 2k
    Or
    Whitfield and 52k

    • Miyagi-san

      June 22, 2018 at 6:57 pm

      RR – few have asked this. Go up the comments a bit mate for some discussion. My 2c is whit, reasons are above.

  17. Dan

    June 22, 2018 at 7:06 pm

    Pendles or Oliver?

    • michaelt1

      June 22, 2018 at 7:19 pm

      Pendles; has the consistency

  18. Jeremy

    June 22, 2018 at 7:15 pm

    What order should these players be traded out

    Spargo
    Seedsman
    Taranto
    Stephenson
    Doedee

    • michaelt1

      June 22, 2018 at 7:18 pm

      1. Spargo

      5. Taranto

  19. Connor

    June 22, 2018 at 7:23 pm

    first trade was Coffield > Redman leaving 241k
    and want Kelly as well.
    do i trade parker or brayshaw or both?

    WIngard austin + 33k

    Parker smith + 130k

    brayshaw smith + 302k

  20. michaelt1

    June 22, 2018 at 7:23 pm

    Which trades? (pick one option)
    1. Macrae to Josh Kelly and Doedee to Wines
    2. Macrae to Treloar and Doedee to Whitfield
    3. Macrae to Kelly and Doedee to Whitfield

    • Miyagi-san

      June 22, 2018 at 7:27 pm

      2 or 3. Both are top 8/6 in their positions

  21. baldrick

    June 22, 2018 at 8:20 pm

    wow I only just realised I have 8 players in this game

    • j

      June 22, 2018 at 8:24 pm

      Nice, you should be in the top 1000 for this round comfortably by the end of the game.

      I have 6 playing now, and 7 played last night – the next two days are gonna be real slow….

      • baldrick

        June 22, 2018 at 9:49 pm

  22. Jeff

    June 22, 2018 at 9:11 pm

    This week I decided to not pay attention to the traders and go for j smith. What a relief that was but I’m still behind the count on listening to them who to bring in 5 – 1. Just shows there are always better people to do the job.

        June 22, 2018 at 9:51 pm

        Didn’t get a rook 4 eyes. I got crisp in for Austin, kelly in for McRae and traded your Mumma in for your sister which is a little cheaper than I expected but certainly knows how to find the balls and rack up the points

        • Alan J

      June 22, 2018 at 11:04 pm

      Nice J – I’m 1088 but played 1 more than you & will drop those same 2 x 30 scores…so not looking as good as I hoped

      Ps Adelaide oval is shocking for injuries atm

  28. j

    June 22, 2018 at 11:21 pm

    Don’t think Wingard playing more of a forward role in the 2nd half bodes well for his fantasy prospects in the upcoming weeks.

      June 23, 2018 at 9:09 am

    • j

      June 23, 2018 at 5:18 pm

      Yeah, but what’s new with that this year?

      If he had just put Mitchell in as number one choice, without the BS fanfare, it would have been fine. But Calvin ends up looking like a peanut talking about a line of 140+ to take the VC score, and a predicted score of 172 or 182 at times during the lead up.

  34. Mammoth

    June 23, 2018 at 5:12 pm

    Dog act by Jeremy Cameron on Harris Andrews. They should have a red card for situations like that – you can’t mark a ball with your elbow. Dog act on a fellow professional.

    • j

      June 23, 2018 at 5:22 pm

      Just saw the replay – absolutely a filthy dog act. If he doesn’t 6 weeks for it (like Tom Bugg last year), the MRO should be sacked for being a muppet.

    • Andy.J

      June 23, 2018 at 5:52 pm

      Don’t agree with red cards in our game, but he should be sitting on the sidelines for a lengthy time.

      • j

        June 23, 2018 at 6:11 pm

        Actually, red cards + missing games are fair – think about this: He knocks out Andrews, so Brisbane are down 1 man, and then Cameron kicks 2 goals in the next 10 minutes after the hit, because he took out one of his direct opponents – Brisbane suffer and GWS benefit. If Cameron gets suspended, only the teams they face from next week benefit, but not Brisbane, who might also be without Andrews.

    • Andy.J

      June 23, 2018 at 7:50 pm

      Still don’t agree with red cards. What if the ump. gets it wrong. The player is off the field for the rest of the game then found not guilty at the tribunal. The umps. get lots of things wrong, and you couldn’t trust them with such an important decision such as that.

      • Demonetise

        June 23, 2018 at 11:17 pm

        What about if it’s based on video review and is immediately reversed if the victim returns to the field? Game continues until a decision is made at which point he’s ejected after the next goal or if he goes off.

        • Crazed Turkey

          June 24, 2018 at 11:32 am

      Just noticed that the score of ‘1668’ is currently with two poor scores deducted (presumably in case Curnow gets less than 40, my current third worst).

      So in this case, looking like getting 1780–1820 after Curnow plays and the 3rd worst score is also deducted.

          So far, moved me from outside 3000 in to under 1300. But I consider the byes one cumulative round – helps ease my pain from thinking about dropping that rank from inside 1000 to outside 3000 over the first two byes.
