  1. 17 Trades and 31k in the bank

    Def – Yeo, Laird, Sicily, Hurley, Doedee, Duman (Cumming, Murphy)
    Mid – Fyfe, Danger, Cripps, Titch, J Kelly, Oliver, Martin, Zerrett (Holman, E Phillips, Barry)
    Ruck – Gawn, Nic Nat (Cameron)
    Fwd – Gray, Heeney, D Smith, Fritsch, Henry, Spargo (D Fogarty, Guelfi)

    Thinking of going early on Fritsch -> Smith and Barry -> Walters but not sure if Walters is a risky pick and whether I should just hold this week.


    1. It comes down to how badly you want Walters really, Fritch isn’t going to make a ton more money but at the moment he’s a great on-field rookie & you have 3 on-field in your FWD, Henry is projected to make 46K by his bye but that’s at 72pts a week which seems a little high, Spargo should make 40K in the next 2weeks, so if you are like me and trying to balance points on field with cash gen I’d go
      Spargo & Henry for Smith & Walters.


  2. Hurley TU
    Brayshaw +100k TD
    I’m getting low on trades, will be full premo and should have about 4 left. If I look for value it might be 5-6 but value usually has a risk attached


  3. Would really like the two targets I should go for this week. 18 trades – 81K

    DEF: Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Yeo, Doedee, Sicily, (Cole, L Murphy)
    MID: Fyfe, Danger, Titch, Dusty, Cogs, T Kelly, Spargo, E Phillips (Barry, Brayshaw, Holman)
    RUC: Gawn, NicNat (Olango)
    FWD: Heeney, Maclean, Buddy, D Smith, Billings, Petracca (Guelfi, Fritsch)


    1. I’d keep Billings & Petracca for now as they have bottomed out and will be good use during byes.
      Out: Kelly In: Cripps
      Out: Brayshaw In:Smith (via Petracca)
      This will get Fritsch on the field also


  4. Thinking to go Kelly to Rockliff and Billings to Walters. Means I don’t get Smith though.
    TU Go ahead with trades
    TD Get Smith in and lose one of the other trades.


  5. Beginning of week, was thinking:

    D Barry –> T Smith
    T Kelly –> Walters

    Means I’ll take a donut in defence if Murphy doesn’t play.

    1) Take the donut, do it
    2) Don’t do it, look at defensive options (got sicily, simmo, laird and yeo)


  6. Who to field out of these 4 in the fwd line..?
    Fritsch, Ronke, Billings and Smith.. also unable to loophole..

    TU: Ronke and Fritsch
    TD: Fritsch and Billings

    Comment: Any other combination?


  7. TU: Murray to Smith (Via. Keeffe to defence) & Dom Barry to Boak (Via spargo to midfield

    -This leaves me with 70k with mirra and keeffe on bench leaving cole on field

    TD: Barry to Smith (Via spargo to mid) & Murray to Webster/simpson

    -Leaves me with 15-50k

    Comment: any other suggestions


  8. Trades looked sorted, but the 2nd one is the one I need the confirmation on with SCT coaches help!

    Naughton > Smith via dpp ( done )

    T/U … Kelly < Dangerfield ( be 120 )
    T/D … Kelly < Waters ( be 24 )

    Cheers Catta


  9. Decided against walters cause of his bye, away from freo record, and injury record. So………
    T/u boak and his consistency
    T/d Gray and his higher ceiling, higher price, ability to stink it


  10. Who to trade to avoid donut
    Murphy up
    Mirra down
    Both still have a lot of cash to make but can’t cement there spot in the side. One has to go.


  11. Tough this week, three main options. First is naughton to smith via sicily.

    TU – TKelly to Westhoff via spargo (with Gray still as a target seeing if his role change is permanent and he should lose money)
    TD – TKelly to Heeney via spargo

    Comment – TKelly to Simpson via Spargo and Sicily back to fwd


  12. Murphy you beautiful *beep* *beep*!
    With Murphy in, I no longer need to go Mirra to Simmo and can wait til after the bye. I’ve decided to miss Walters and bring in Boak. Fits the byes beautifully. However my gut is still telling me to get Simmo. I need help.

    TUp Back your gut and get Simmo for Mira
    TDown Bring in Boak

    Comment grab Walters


    1. Finishing off forwards:

      Currently: Buddy, McLean, Gray, DSmith, Heeney, Guelfi( ZLangdon, JGarlett)

      TU: Walters( Concerned about injuries)

      TD: Boak ( Plays through byes)

      Thinking possibly Mundy also.. comments appreciated..


  13. Last forward upgrade. Money not a problem.

    TU: Menegola
    TD: Boak

    Or i can go Walters but will he out the score the other two? and theres the injury concern.


  14. My son’s team

    T/U …
    ZGL < T smith
    Kelly < Dangerfield
    $209,100 in the bank

    T/D …
    ZGL < Waters
    Kelly < Dangerfield
    Miss out on T Smith
    $59,000 in the bank

    Cheers Catta


  15. How much is walters predicted to rise this week? I want him but probably want T.Smith and B. Rice more.


  16. If I’m targeting Simpson, Yeo and Gaff in the next few weeks (who all have the Rd 12 bye), should I grab one this week and upgrade to Boak next week during their byes?
    Will have 20+ players for the Rd 12 bye
    TU: Gaff/Yeo/Simmo this week, Boak next
    TD: Boak this week, Gaff/Yeo/Simmo after the byes


  17. Is Walters a must have for the rest of the season?
    TU: yes, will be a top 6 fwd for the rest of the year
    TD: no, won’t be a top 6 fwd


  18. Passing on Walters, Rocky, Boak…
    To many risks .. didn’t want them originally so am looking to upgrade after byes to get in premos Danger, Hurley etc… just bringing in TSmith…
    Good downgrades on the Horizon..
    Ahern & Giro..

    TU: Good Plan

    TD: bring in Walters, Rocky etc


  19. T/u – Guelfi and Billings – Boak and Smith – better for bye structures but a bit sideways with the Billings move (last minute brain wave/snap, depending on how you view it)
    T/d – Barry and Coffield – Smith and Rice – Stick to original trade plan! (although tbh original plan was Murphy to Rice), not as great for rd 14 byes in def.
