Has your forward line been decimated?

Written by Big Sexy on April 30 2010

Mine has been shagged….   My forward line has Dangerman, Peterson and Rockliff on the field, and Duncan and Hitchcock on the bench…. The good news is I have a little over 400k in the bank.  I see Duncan is on the extended bench, Peterson, Rockliff and Hitchcock are all emergencies…. And I’m keen to hang on to Dangerman if I can.

What to do?  I’m thinking I may actually trade Mitch Banner off my midield bench for Goodes, then swap Goodes to forward line and Dangerman to midfield bench.  However, I still need Duncan to get a run and hope that one of the other boyz gets a last minute call-up…. I may have to wear a zero.

What do you think?  And do you have a similar dilemma?

  2. Was determined not to trade this week but certain omissions made it difficult. Taylor Walker out for P. Davis meant I could make $100K and use him as a DPP with Stevens and Grundy. Rocky and Hitchcock on the bench. Barring LTI’s, I shouldn’t have to trade for a month.

  3. Not in as bad a shape as you, but I’m playing 2 short this week as a result of injury in my midfield and forward line.

    Traded last week to free up some cash and allow Rocky to start on the field – Both forward bench players are out injured this week and Rocky’s been dropped.

    Midfield has been dealt a harsh blow with Boyd and Martin being out injured. Shuey is my other bench player there and he’s not back for couple weeks at least.

  4. I’m a little bit lucky in that it’s mostly my bench that has been decimated.
    On Field OUTS: Gram (anyone have any info on his injury?)
    Bench OUTS: Martin, Warnock, Rockliff, Peterson.
    I can’t be too displeased with that even though it could leave me exposed if it stays that way. Most likely i am looking at the below trades.

    J.Hunt -> P.Davis
    C.Peterson -> A.Goodes

  5. nope, my forward line hasn’t been hurt at all. It now reads: Chapman, Higgins, Cloke, Goodes, Franklin, Jonathan Brown and Podsiadly . EMG: P. Davis and Hitchcock.

  6. Does anyone know if T Lockyer and Waite will get runs this week? Both named on extended bench. Guess I wait till 5pm, when they release the final teams…Or do I just trade them both out now???

  9. I have a bit of a dilemma with my fwd line. Have Rockliff and Hitchcock on the bench so no coverage for Giansiracusa if he doesn’t line up. Is it worth trading Gia for say Goodes or Hitchcock for say Davis or do i leave it as is and cop a possible zero?

  10. And of course I broke my rule about trading only at the last minute, and brought him in this week, and now he is out! Arrgh

  19. Don’t drink and trade.

    Went out to lunch, had more than a few Asahi’s. Came back, discovered that the bloke I’m playing in my primary league this week has offered a $50 bet on the match via Psyche Out. Had one trade left after trading HitchCOCK for Davis. Upgraded Gia for Goodesy. My smartest move? Probably not, but at least I’m no longer carrying a zero into this week’s match (Bastinac in for Ablett).

    1. Click the “S” icon on the player you want to move. Then in the forward line there should be a player that has been highlighted so you click on that player and the roles should reverse.

    1. yeah thinking that move looks best Ice Man, will give me a lot of coin for later use as well… the obvious downgrade would be P Davis, and job security looks good… should’ve taken Pods earlier though, not worth trading him in now instead of Davis?? extra 70K

    1. I’m in a similar situation. Had to bite the bullet and trade Martin out for Goodes. Was hoping to make a bit more $ from him but couldn’t afford not to …

      1. wouldn’t trade Howlett…
        downgrade Martin > Cunnington maybe
        then upgrade Mitchell > ultra premium (Judd if you have the money)

        although Mitchell is bottoming out so its annoying having to trade him at such a low price… Martin is also going to rise considerably more, and Cunnington not exactly at rock bottom price (only about 100K made there)

        Tough situation mate.

    1. I’m with you Ryan. Got Martin and Moles on the bench and not willing to trade them yet so it’s a doughnut for me this week. I reckon in a few months time I’ll be glad I saved the trade.

      The problem is . . . I want Martin as a regular bench player due to his job security. And Moles’ price is still too low to trade him out and on the back of a 91 last week his price will go up even if he misses a game every now and then. Anyway there aren’t that many midfield downgrade options . . . JKT and Cunnington – not worth it yet.

  19. Don’t drink and trade.

    Went out to lunch, had more than a few Asahi’s. Came back, discovered that the bloke I’m playing in my primary league this week has offered a $50 bet on the match via Psyche Out.

Probably not, but at least I’m no longer carrying a zero into this week’s match (Bastinac in for Ablett).

      1. Still waiting on Gia news. Motts as much as I want my pies to smash your Blues on Sunday, L Davis looks injured & I doubt that he will play or will be fully fit for a while. But cheer as much as you like for him on Sunday!

    1. Scatts, Hargraves has a break even of 63 this week so I’d say he’s just about bottomed out. You might want to get on this week if you’re keen. I like your train of thought as I too can’t see Hunt doing any better (both points and $$$) B/E 66
