Last Minute Queries – Rd 12

Written by Thommo on June 8 2018

Do you need advice on a trade option? Do you have a general  question that you need some advice on? Do you just want to vent about how crap Round 12 is shaping up? DO you need to know whether this is a beer or scotch night?

Ask the community here!

Normally I would write: ‘You can ask the community which bench players to loophole’ but this week you are just showing off if you have enough players to loophole!

      1. J Smith probably will get good j/s for rest of year in Lever’s role.

        Worth keeping an eye on for a d7/m9 backup

  1. is anyone else having to field only 16 players?? and have no choice about it as if i didnt trade it would only be 13…

  2. to get 18 on field-
    billings> walters
    LDU> ahern
    T.Smith> mihocek
    obviously risky going early on rookies, and frustrating trading out other rookies who’ve not matured, but not many other options- good trades or bad?
    T/U do it
    T/D too risky
    thanks!

  3. Currently only 15 players on field with 17 trades remaining and $220,000
    Option 1 T/u trade Keefe, Spargo and Ridley for Austin , Ahern and Boak.

    Option 2 T/d trade T Smith , Spargo and Ridley for Austin. Ahern and Heeney.

    Comment Could keep Spargo and go for Moore for 18 players on field but not sure of jt of Moore or could go Michocek instead of Austin to be better sit bye round

  4. Thoughts;

    T/U: use 2 trades to get 18 on field leaves 13 trades.

    T/D use 3 trades to get 19 on the field leaves 12 trades.

    Thank you

    1. Billings & t smith out
      westhoff in – and one of c. moore or j. jones.

      Personally, I am taking moore but both as risky as each other. Moore is older and in my opinion; likely to score higher. Both will struggle to hold down their spot once injured players return. pray you get the next 2 games out of one of them.

    2. Trade billings for Ahern and Cole for Austin.

      Nice team you have there, with lots of trades in hand.

      Hope your overall looks as good.

    1. Goodwin said it’s a form thing; his poor form as well as Pedersons good form. So he’s not injured and will have to earn his spot back.

      1. I though he went off 3 times for injury last week, but could play on.

        None of them were major, just the usual lumps and bumps.

        But Pedersen has been unlucky all season, could well hold a spot long term.

    1. I wanna buy I would start pushing the trades too hard. If you are 15+ trades left, feel free.

  6. Thanks for all the help so far this year everyone!

    TU: Mihocek
    TD: Heron

    This one has me really puzzled. R 13 won’t be an issue, ideally I want whoever I choose to be playing in R14 as an extra body (can happily be a 102K loophole after that). Both have pretty unclear JS

    1. I’m in the same boat – I went Rice over Ridley so Austin wont work with my bye’s

      Is Danger in for Crowden a good trade also?

      3

      0
      1. Yeah I’m the same, would love Austin but just wont work with my structure on the round 14 bye.

        Looking like I’ll go for Heron as Mihocek job security looks shaky as. Might just have to put up with a few bad Heron scores but at least its cover!

        1

        3
      2. Also Danger in for Crowden is a great trade! if you have the cash and can still field at least 18 in the bye rounds

        2

        0
        1. I also have enough to just do the Danger trade and hold on the other.

          This will leave me with 17 this week instead of 18 but I’ll still have Richards in my back line

          Decisions decisions!!

    2. Mihocek looks way more promising, but are you after J/s or good scores?

      If you want j/s j smith at melb may be better than heron.

  7. Mirra and Mutch to Austin and Ahern? Will leave with with 13 trades and 200k left over, while it’ll allow me to have 17 players this week.

    TU- Go for it
    TD- Not worth it

  8. I have 587k who should i replace for dusty?

    I was thinking oliver or josh kelly but im not sure! need help! i am open to a cheap option just to make cash then get dusty back after the byes when he is fit and cheap

  9. Can’t get Ahern until after his bye since I’m looking short for next week too.

    Seen absolutely zero talk about Jemaine Jones even though he’s on his bubble game and has been serviceable so far.

    What do people think of him?

    1. Yes if you’ve got loads of trades left and/or you’ll cop a donut if not and you’re going for overall not leagues.

  10. Call me crazy. Currently in the top 50 overall and I’ve been slammed with just 15 starters this round. With Dusty possibly out for the next 3 and cogs out for the next 2 I’m thinking of going something pretty out of the box. Need Premiums over the byes rounds soooo..

    TU: Dusty, Cogs, Smith (Melb) to Wines, Boak and Ahern

    TD: I’ve been Bye-boozled and lost the plot

      1. Thanks mate just trying to hang in there haha will have 12 trades left if I do 3 trades this week.

        How about someone instead of wines, maybe Oliver or Treloar?

        8

        0
        1. Definitely better options. Good luck mate. Oliver over Treloar, just. Even tho’ Treloar may score better this week in the H2H game.
          In a similar predicament, tho top 800 not 50! Good on ya.
          Went one premo, two rookies tho’. Just want to grab what I consider good rookies while they’re there.
          Just Ahern after his bye and the two premos I need and should be ready for the ensuing carnage juggernaut with 7 trades remaining.
          What could possibly go wrong?!?

          1. Haha I’m scared that the same thing will happen next week in terms of players missing/injured so I’m backing the port boys over the next 3 rounds. Just don’t know which two out of Gray, Westhoff, Boak and Wines.. Have to back my judgement it’s got me this far.. Who out of those options? Cheers

            1. Westhoff and Boak. Their DPP swings it for me. Just. I already have the Hoff and am delighted tho’ he worries me consistenly. Huge ceiling but can go small. I think Ryder struggling will help him return to early season form and c 110 average again.
              Will look at Boak next week if carnage continues!
              Good luck mate.

    1. I’m ranked 34 and in the same situation as you. I’ve gone the risky option and traded Martin and cogs out. Have to take risks to win it

        1. Oliver is a no brainer i believe. Still undecided about who else with 30 minutes till lockout! thinking either wines, the hoff or boak for extra cover during the next two rounds

          1. It’s a bit of a flip a coin and make or break trades. Fingers crossed we make the right decisions

          2. Trade Dusty to Oliver now. That gives you til Sunday if you need it to trade Cogs for ANO. Treloar/Danger?!? Or do you have them both?!

            0

            0
    2. Go Wines and Hoff. Both have dpp m/f. Dusty likely to miss three rds…minimum is two so either/both of these port guys is a no brainer. Cant believe so few onto it.

      1. Oops…only Hoff has dpp but that doesnt change the argument. Especially with boak and his dpp up fwd 🙂

        1. I went quarter of crispy duck and special fried rice with prawns and extra chilli. Should take our minds off the carnage for a minute or two.

    1. There are two port guys that are averaging 90-100 and will play three byes. I can’t believe they dont get mentioned. Hello Ollie and the Hoff !!

  16. Have Webster, Savage, Rice, Laird, Doedee, Murphy all having Rd 14 bye (with Sicily & Mirra).
    Currently have 19 this week although this includes fielding low scoring rookies (Phillips, Spargo, Brayshaw, ZGL)
    The plan is to move Rice, Murphy and/or Doedee to Simpson next week and Yeo prior to the Rd 14 bye .
    TU: Spargo to Austin via DPP shuffling
    TD: Save a trade

  17. Have no idea what to do guys. Have 18 trades, $312,000 in the bank, 17 on field (not a great 17) and am ranked 2323 overall. Although have been playing for league throughout the season so far. If anyone has any thoughts on a good plan of attack, that would be highly appreciated. Cheers community !!

      1. Can’t agree more Wighty.

        I am thinking Henry and Spargo to McDonald and Ahern this week. (trading playing players isn’t ideal although i’ve got an extra player on my opponent). Leaving me with $199100k in the bank. Leaving me with options, in case someone gets injured, or a premium becomes a must.

        1. Thanks Harry. I cant believe there isnt more love for the port guys…Boak and Hoff in particular with their dpps. Three bye rounds, avge 90-100 pts. I have TMac, but getting Ahern to make sure i have 18 onfield. Currently stands at 19 but given this week…someone will drop out.

          0

          1. One of those port guys are in my plans without a doubt. That’s why i want the cash in the bank as well. But as they have high be’s i don’t think there is much risk in waiting on them to get a more thorough decision. Hope that makes sense!

            1

            0
            1. It does Harry….but high be’s aint getting me points this week and a win, if I keep Dusty instead of getting those port dudes. I just looked at the total position over the three byes. Easy decision.
