    Which trades??
    1. Banfield to Narkle & Seedsman to Lloyd/Simpson
    2. Banfield to Narkle & Tim Smith/Ed Phillips to Menegola
    3. Banfield to Narkle & Tim Smith/Ed Phillips to Matt Crouch

    Option 1 leaves me with around $130K more left over than the other two trades.

      July 1, 2018 at 10:12 pm

      id try and upgrade your rooks first so id go with option 3

    • Bort

      July 1, 2018 at 11:19 pm

      Option 3, I’d say get rid of Phillips.

  2. anth80

    July 1, 2018 at 8:53 pm

    What’s better.

    Ahern/ Giro to Sier and Burton to Hurley/Goddard
    Big O to a 170 k ruck and Seedsman to Lloyd/ Yeo?

      2 cause ahern played pretty well today

  3. T-Mac

    July 1, 2018 at 8:55 pm

    Option 1. Banfield to Narkle and the man of seed to Lloyd’s bank (founded in 1765, Birmingham – home of the sabbath).

    This week I went Cunico to Narkle and Guelfi to Laird (via DPP). I traded Laird out when he broke his hand. Time to bring him back.

  4. tom13

    July 1, 2018 at 9:51 pm

    is it worth paying the extra 120k for simpson over goddard? is goddard safe to average 95 for the rest of the year?

    • michaelt1

      July 1, 2018 at 10:05 pm

      Seeing some of the scores that Goddard has had this year does put me off him. Simpson looks to have found a but of consistency in the past few week with three scores in a row over 110. Although he can pump out the occasional 60 he makes up for it with his 120+ scores hence why I think he’s worth paying the extra money for.

  5. Grovers Guns

    July 1, 2018 at 9:54 pm

    What’s best.

    1 – Rice to Laird and play Ronke and NicNat
    2 – NicNat to Grundy and play Rice and Ronke
    3 – Ronke to Menegola and play NicNat and Rice

    Other trade is Fyfe to Gaff. Wish I could have 1 week of no premo injuries to upgrade my team and use my bank

    • tom13

      July 1, 2018 at 10:05 pm

      id say get rice off ya field first after his 26 this week

    • PK

      July 2, 2018 at 11:29 am

      I have a simlar dilemma but have JSmith playing instead of rice.
      Im just getting in Grundy for Nicnat while I have the funds and going to get a proper D6 later. Hoping Ridley gets a game….

  6. Bort

    July 1, 2018 at 11:12 pm

    1. Who goes first, Savage (@ PA) or Christensen (v CAR)

    Kelly and Billings or
    Lloyd/Brayshaw/Menegola and Dusty or
    M Crouch and Buddy

    • Kingzy

      July 2, 2018 at 10:28 am

      Kelly and Billings I think is a good gamble, Billings seems to be good for a 90

  7. CDadds5

    July 2, 2018 at 8:06 am

    Nic Nat to Big Stef
    Fyfe to Gaff?

    • Grovers Guns

      July 2, 2018 at 9:19 am

      Fyfe to Gaff as Fyfe will be out for a couple of weeks.
      besides, if you are getting ruckmen in it should be Gawn and Grundy

      • Kingzy

        July 2, 2018 at 10:33 am

        +1, Fyfe has to go and Gaff is the shiz nizzle

        I dont mind Stef Martin tho, Grundy would be the best but if you cant afford him Stef is VS a Kreuzerless Carlton this weekend.

    • CDadds5

      July 2, 2018 at 6:01 pm

      cheers lads

  8. Kingzy

    July 2, 2018 at 10:26 am

    Scored 2444 on the weekend and pumped now, moved up to rank 217.

    Had Heeneys 18, and took Lloyds VC instead of Titchs massive 195.

    Making a decent upgrade this week.
    Big O – Abbot
    Nic Nat – Stef Martin, would love Grundy but cant afford this week.

    Leaves $38 in the kitty team looking like:
    DEF:Laird, Yeo, Lloyd, Brayshaw, Sicily, Hurn (Smith, Murphy)
    MID:Titch, Kelly, Gaff, Cogs, Neale, Phillips, Zerrett, Crouch (Sier, Wilson)
    RUC:Gawn, Stef Martin (Abbott, Cameron)
    FWD:Smith, McLean, Hoff, Heeney, Rocky, Fristch (Battle, Clarke)

    Next week Fristch is on the chopping block to Simpson, switch Sicily FWD.

    • Grovers Guns

      July 2, 2018 at 11:13 am

      Heeney has a Thursday night game so may miss

      • PK

        July 2, 2018 at 11:24 am

        If Heeney does miss just field Battle for the week Kingzy

        • Kradezy

          July 4, 2018 at 2:02 pm

          Battle out 2-3 weeks with a broken eye socket

      • Kingzy

        July 2, 2018 at 11:25 am

        Yea saw that, not much we can do about that. Id say its a hold, hopefully he gets up tho.

        • PowerAde

          July 2, 2018 at 3:03 pm

          I reckon if you have a spare trade to trade him out and pick him up when his price levels off, his breakeven is going to be huge in his next game, you could swap him out for mena and buy him back in in three to 4 and save some cash

          • Kingzy

            July 2, 2018 at 3:17 pm

            I was considering going Heeney to Billings, who seems to be doing ok and for a quick cash grab, and Nic Nat to Stef but I am about 20K short.
            I think ill just hold Heeney.
            I really want Fristch to Simpson next week to

    • Rambo Tambo

      July 2, 2018 at 5:59 pm

      Massive score without having Titch captain! You just overtook me, I’ve dropped to 225 😓

  9. smile

    July 2, 2018 at 11:04 am

    Got 561k

    Who is the best to bring in for that in fwd, mid, def?

    Was thinking, dusty, de goey, Billings, shuey?

    • PK

      July 2, 2018 at 11:22 am

      Normally it would be Dusty for me but he is in putrid fantasy form. Shuey would be a handy POD and is underpriced.

    • Red Devil 11

      July 3, 2018 at 12:40 am

      Shuey for price and POD

  10. smile

    July 2, 2018 at 3:01 pm

    Best replacement for Heeney

    Menegola, Hoff, brayshaw or Lloyd?

    • andyjh

      July 2, 2018 at 4:28 pm

      Hoff is on a pretty good streak right now

    • michaelt1

      July 3, 2018 at 11:45 am

      Hoff is probably the most consistent out of those four, similar to Heeney in his ability to have quiet quarters of less than 20 points and still manage to get to 100 most weeks.

  11. andyjh

    July 2, 2018 at 4:30 pm

    I am really struggling to complete my team right now, same story all year keep getting smashed by injuries.. last 3 weeks ive had Macrae, Treloar & now fyfe. Its so hard to upgrade when having to sideways all the time..

    Anyway, im still a slim chance to play finals lol

    • Guy Incognito

      July 2, 2018 at 5:11 pm

      Bring in Shuey for Fyfe? Will make 194k for upgrade.

  12. subdub

    July 2, 2018 at 5:07 pm

    What is the best option between the following after trading Cunico to Nankle/Sier

    1 – Fyfe to Josh Kelly/Gaff and have to play Ahern/Guelfi on ground
    2 – Guelfi to Menegola and cover Fyfe this week with Nankle/Sier
    3 – Double downgrade to get Nankle & Sier and benching Fyfe & Guelfi

    I know that I should be trying to improve my team this week but do feel that Menegola vs Sydney and Kelly vs West Coast may limit their scoring for this round?

    • Red Devil 11

      July 3, 2018 at 12:39 am

      Option 2.

  13. smile

    July 2, 2018 at 5:19 pm

    Play M crouch and Mihocek or Hoff/brayshaw/menegola and Sier?

    • Warnie


      July 2, 2018 at 9:04 pm

      Menegola and Sier.

    • Rae

      July 2, 2018 at 9:43 pm

    Also was Luke Ryan injured or did he just play poorly?

    • Warnie


      July 2, 2018 at 9:04 pm

      Played poorly. Wasn’t a good day for a lot of Dockers. He’s in my Draft team and I thought he would have been in for a big one.

      • M8

    July 2, 2018 at 8:52 pm

    Trade in Sier/Narkle (Joel Smith on field as last rookie)


    Trade in Brad Lynch (Paul Ahern on field as last rookie)

    • Warnie


      July 2, 2018 at 9:04 pm

      You’d clearly prefer Ahern on field over Smith, but I think Sier (just over Narkle) would be the best to bring in.

      That said, Lynch’s job security is ok – so as a downgrade you can be ok with that. Do you have solid MID bench cover? If so, ride that out for now and worst case, grab Sier next week.

  16. Red Devil 11

    July 3, 2018 at 12:37 am

    Def: Laird Yeo Lloyd Brayshaw Howe Rice ( Ridley/Smith )
    Mid: Titch Cogs Cripps Phillips Crouch Wines Merrett Rockliff ( Ahern/Mutch )
    Rucks: Gawn/Jacobs ( Big O/Cameron )
    Fwd: McLean Smith Heeney Wingard Guelfi Christensen ( Ryan/Wilson )
    Bank = $ 59k

    Looking at following opions:
    1) Ryan to Sier ( via DPP ) and play on field for Heeney
    2) Guelfi to Sicily
    3) Jacobs to Martin
    4) Rice to Tuohy

    • Callum Murray

      July 3, 2018 at 6:05 pm

      Guelfi to Sier via Ahern DPP then Rice to Sicily

  19. smile

    July 3, 2018 at 6:46 pm

  21. Mad Fish

    July 4, 2018 at 9:51 pm

    Going into the Tassie wilderness tomorrow and will be out reception until lockout so a bit worried about trades. Any advice would be great!

    DEF: Yeo, Brayshaw, Whitfield, Hurley, Savage, Doedee, (Redman, Ridley)
    MID: Titch, Gaff, Neale, Zerrett, Tom Phillips, Danger, Parker, Heeney*, (T Kelly, J Smith)
    RUCK: Gawn, Nank, (McInerney, Cameron)
    FWD: Smith, Westhoff, McLean, Sicily, Wingard, Taranto, (Apeness, Ahern)
    $162k remaining

    Got a couple of options, with all of them involving Redman to Sier/Knarkle as the first trade. However, I am undecided on the second trade:

    Option 1:
    Heeney –> the other one of Sier/Knarkle for a double upgrade next week (means I’ll be playing Kelly and Doedee)

    Option 2:
    Heeney –> Laird/Lloyd/Simpson (leaving me with Kelly as my only rookie on and Doedee as bench cover)

    Option 3:
    Heeney –> Cogs/Gibbs/Sidey/Heppell (leaving me with Doedee as my only rookie on and Kelly as bench cover)

    Option 4:
    Taranto/Savage —> Heppell/Adams (with Doedee and Ahern on the ground and Kelly as bench cover)

    What does everyone think the best option is?

    • Bort

      July 4, 2018 at 10:30 pm

      Option 4, Taranto and Savage aren’t scoring much better than rookies lately and are leaking cash. You could also consider going shuey and cogs/sidey/gibbs/cripps

    • Kingzy

      July 5, 2018 at 12:11 pm

      I wouldnt be afraid to trade Savage, he hasnt been doing to well.
      Also field Kelly over Ahern, he just scored 119 on the weekend!

  22. stoo

    July 5, 2018 at 10:09 am

    Phillips to Sier allows for Austin to Lloyd. Can move on Steven, Doedee and Petracca over next two weeks

    Any better ideas?

    Laird, Yeo, Lloyd, Whitfield, Goddard, Doedee (Mihocek, Redman)

    Titch, Kelly, Sidebottom, Neale, Steven, Parker, Merrett, JOM (Sier, Smith)

    Gawn, Martin (O, Cameron)

    McLean, Sicily, Billings, Rockliff, Wingard, Petracca (Ahern, Wilson)

    • Kingzy

      July 5, 2018 at 12:07 pm

      Sounds good, Austin – Lloyd is a huge upgrade

  23. peterthomas25

    July 5, 2018 at 11:54 am

    Murphy, Duncan, or Crouch?

    • Kingzy

      July 5, 2018 at 11:59 am

      id say Crouch, but hearing some doubt this week? Hopefully not he needs to play!

  24. Kingzy

    July 5, 2018 at 12:05 pm

    Seriously stuck this week.

    $15K in the kitty

    DEF:Laird, Yeo, Lloyd, Brayshaw, Sicily, Hurn (Smith, Murphy)
    MID:Titch, Kelly, Gaff, Cogs, Neale, Phillips, Zerrett, Crouch (Sier, Wilson)
    RUC:Gawn, Nic Nat (Mcinerney, Cameron)
    FWD:Smith, McLean, Hoff, Heeney, Rocky, Fristch (Battle, Clarke)

    With Heeney out and no cover, need to trade him.

    Thoughts on:
    Heeney – Simspon straight sway via Sicily and dg a rook
    Heeney + Nic Nat – Barker if named or Lynch and field, Grundy
    Hold Heeney, Fristch + Battle – Simpson + Barker and field

    Next week I can go Murphy + McInerney – Heeney + Abbott so I can get Heeney back.
    Then following week Fritsch – Simpson

    Ultimately my plans are:
    Nic Nat – Grundy which can only be done now through Heeney, or wait 3 weeks
    Get Heeney back if traded
    Fritsch – Simpson

    What can Barker score, maybe 60-70.
    And how much difference would that be between him and Nic Nat vs GWS this week??


    • wolfpack

      July 5, 2018 at 3:40 pm

      Gws have limited ruck stocks and now with Patton down with suspected acl I’d hold Nic Nat cause he’s is still good for 80-90 and it’s only a matter of time before his tog goes up. If you base his average on that he’s going ok. Your team looks in good shape so I’d still be looking to generate cash right now to upgrade Nic to Grundy type in 1-2 weeks. I’m in similar position but have cover for Heeney but am still thinking dpp Sicily for him and getting Simpson as well and Lynch in also. Also thinking to double down and bring in sier.

    • wolfpack

      July 5, 2018 at 3:47 pm

      I just wouldn’t be going a rookie ruck that’s all could pop you a 30’s score easily. Anyway who the hell is barker in ruck ?

      • Kingzy

        July 5, 2018 at 4:14 pm

        Thanks for the feedback.
        Doesnt GWS have Simpson and Lobb playing at the moment?
        Nic Nat 76 and 78 in the last 2 weeks has me a bit worried to be honest, seems to be getting pushed around in the ruck.

        Its suppose to be Baker, not Barker, sorry. Autocorrect
        He is the Demons FWD, might be playing this week. Avg 73 in the VFL, last week he scored 126 or something.

        If Baker can get 65, and Nic Nat 75
        But Grundy 120, and SImpson last 3 vs Lions is 81,81,99
        It is much of a much, but I get Grundy now for the rest of the year.

        Its a hard call

  25. nkthegunner12

    July 5, 2018 at 1:10 pm

    Lloyd, Crisp or Brayshaw?

    • Alan J

      July 5, 2018 at 1:22 pm

      Tough call.. The last 6-7 games from all 3 have been amazing.. Crisp has lower ownership and could be a handy POD in your league matches but Collingwood has a difficult stretch of 5 games, and now they’re without Dunn, so Crisp could be made to play more a traditional defensive role..

      I’d be picking Brayshaw.. 6 100s in his last 8, and the Dees have 4 relatively easier games in their next 5

    • Kingzy

      July 5, 2018 at 1:23 pm

      Brayshaw should go huge this week Vs Freo hackers

  26. andrew007

    July 5, 2018 at 1:39 pm

    What do people see merrett averaging from here on last 3 111, last 5 107 and prices at 683k, couldhe be a better option than gaff etc if he can keep those numbers up and use the cash to upgrade elsewhere? cheers

  27. Connor

    DEF: Laird, Yeo, Lloyd, Simpson, Whitfield, Ryan (Redman, Smith)
    MID: Mitchell, ,Kelly, Fyfe, Sidebottom, Coniglio, Merrett, Crouch, Rockliff (Banfield, Sier)
    RUCK: Martin, Gawn (McInerney, Cameron)
    FWD: McLean, Heeney, Smith, Wingard, Ronke, Guelfi (Giles-Langdon, Ahern)

    Cash: $88k

    Currently have gone Giles-Langdon (via Rockliff) to Narkle fielding Sier and then Fyfe to Cripps. Thought on trades is Cripps the best mid, I can get any mid. Leaves $204k for next week.

  29. Bomber Thompson

    July 5, 2018 at 3:38 pm

  30. Bavan

    July 5, 2018 at 5:13 pm

    Field Rice or JSmith? rice scored 26 last week while joel smith scored 27 the week before so… there is a lot to chose from.

    • Shags

      July 5, 2018 at 5:45 pm

      Think Rice has a better chance to score ok imo.

  31. Shags

    July 5, 2018 at 5:52 pm

    With all the carnage I think I will go for a double downgrade this week.

    Grabbing Sparkle Narkle first.

    2nd trade Either Siers or Lloyd from doggies.

    Lloyd potentially fixes my lack of def bench issue and 60 is pretty solid for a def rookie. I think his JS isn’t too bad with all the dogs injuries.

    Sier is looking like a pretty must have rookie though.


    • Bavan

      July 5, 2018 at 6:00 pm

      I assume u mean Lynch from the doggies as it matches ur description. i would personally go with sier as i agree that he is a must have rookie. It looks like u have narkle way ahead of sier, i dont think the gap is that large tbh, in fact i reckon sier is a better choice than narkle if i had to choose one. No Treloar, inside mid, big body – i reckon he will be more consistent than narkle. Menegola Danger Duncan Ablett Selwood – so many big names in that Geelong mkidfield – Also Kelly as well i forgot, cant see narkle getting too much of a run.

      • Shags

        July 5, 2018 at 9:20 pm

        Don’t actually have Narkle way ahead, just had to trade him in today to get him. Narkle also gives me a bench loophole which just gives him aan extra reason to get in. I also meant lynch yes ;)

  32. tom13

    July 5, 2018 at 6:26 pm

    fyfe and rice to 1) simpson and narkle or 2) hurley and langdon. Which option?

    • Matt

      July 5, 2018 at 6:32 pm


    • Bavan

      July 5, 2018 at 6:38 pm

      if that is ed langdon then definitley 2 -100%.
      ur getting a top 8 defender in hurley and a top 6 forward in langdon according to roy’s rolling 22

  33. Matt

    July 5, 2018 at 6:39 pm

    DEF: Laird, Yeo, Lloyd, Simmo, Brayshaw, J.Smith (Redman, Brander)
    MID: Titch, Kelly, Gibbs, Curnow, Neale, Merrett, Parker, Rockliff (Wilson, Clarke)
    RUC: Gawn, Stef (McInerney, Cameron)
    FWD: Smith, Westhoff, McLean, Heeney, Bundy, Guelfi (Ahern, Battle)

    158k in the bank.
    Looking at trading Redman and Wilson > Lynch and Sier, leaving 212k for hopefully Guelfi or Bundy > Cripps next week. Thoughts?

  34. Ballantynes Day

    July 5, 2018 at 6:47 pm

    Murphy, Jelwood or Coniglio?

  35. Jack

    July 6, 2018 at 11:24 am

    Dudes am I “up”grading Fristch to Wingard (actually makes $9k or something) or keeping Fritta on field for one more week and bringing in Sier to the bench? First trade was Heeney to Whitfield (via dpp.)

    I really like the look of no rooks on field, could always double downgrade the bench next week…
