    1. I thought Taranto was a steal during JLT, and still feel that way. I feel his numbers have been higher and more consistent all the way through. He’s playing in and around the action more without the attention Curnow is attracting bc there are more high quality players in the side. My question would be “if they both get the same % of the pie, whose pie is larger?” Answer: GWS.

      If you take Curnow, you’re getting sucked into advertising

      1. Pretty simple if there’s no other decent options. If you’re just trading Langdon and have Ryan and Fritsch are there any other forward rookies worth trading in for a similar price?

        1. Yeah it would have to be Waterman or Venables as I’ve already got Fritsch, Ryan and Garlett. Hence why I’m undecided about whether it is worth it.

          1. Keep in mind that JJK will be back very soon. I’m no expert on the Eagles list, but I imagine one of their rookies will make way for him.

      2. Not so sure.
        Depends if you have the must have fwd rookies already. If not, Langdon is 4 weeks of fwd loophole option at a time when there are few good rookie options available that are worth the trade.

        1. Langdon would be a good fwd loophole option if GWS didn’t have so many early games (no games on Sunday) in the next 4 weeks hence why I am trading him to Barry via dpp

          6

          1
    1. I don’t have enough trades to trade him this week, so I’m going to wait an see how Higgins does, and if he does well then I will do Langdon to Higgins

    2. Hate not making early cash, so I’m upgrading him to Fisher. With luck he will come back in 5-6 weeks and I will use him as a downgrade option. Never enough downgrade options.

  1. TU: Hold Lambert and trade Mason cox to fisher/parfitt and giles-langdon to ryan

    TD: Trade langdon-ryan and save the other trade

    1. I assume you got Cox for the purpose of ruck cover. Given Collingwood’s injuries he still seems to be solid cover. I would hold for the moment.

      1. i did have him for ruck cover, but had kreuzer so the week i needed him he was out hahaha elected to go nic nat instead of english too last week my only trade thus far but yeah i agree to hold onto

  2. Highest combined score with all the out trading this week. 🙂
    TU’ Hibberd, Rockliff and Naughton.
    TD_ Simpson, Shaw and Bonner.

    1. Bont will be a 105+ player. Dusty will be ~120. That trade nets you 300 pts give or take.

      Can you get those 300 pts without giving up Bont? You may be able to… but, you took Bont for a reason.

      I’d hold.

      10

      1. Mike.

        I would usually advise holding Premos too.

        But the way Dusty has started he has shown he is a must have.

        The Dogs look like a rabble this year and The Bont seems to be spending a lot more time forward.

        If The Bont only goes at 100 and Dusty manages closer to 125.
        suddenly the points difference is closer to 450.

        If I was Jimmy, I wouldn’t hesitate to trade The Bont for Dusty.

        12

        1. Freo.

          All valid points.
          I take them on board.

          For me it’s too early to pull the pin on a Premo like the Bont when he played/scored much better last week even with the Doggies a rabble. He’s an up and down player… averages about half his games at/below 100 over the past 3-years, which means he’s got 12-13 games of 110+ left this season if the odds stay true.

          At this time in the season, unless you’re super correcting or building cash, shouldn’t the trades stay in the pocket?

          3

          1
          1. Mike.

            I do concur but….

            Dusty and Titch are the only two players I would even consider trading out the Bont for.

            Both are “must haves “and very reliable V/C and Captain options.

            Nailing your Captain each week can really help you rise above the pack.

            I would have no confidence putting the big C on the Bont at the moment.

            Dusty is a different story. He looks unstoppable.

            1. I guess I’m looking at it from the perspective that I don’t have to make the decision (have both Dusty & Titch).

              Thanks for your viewpoint Freo! Always learning how others take on the game only makes me a better coach 🙂

    2. Great conversation on this proposed trade. Put simply, if you have enough cash spare to be able to afford this standalone trade, then you acknowledge that you made a mistake, and should have started with Martin instead. If Bontempelli is your biggest issue, then definitely GO FOR IT!!!

  4. Don’t have any other pressing issues and happy with my rookies, although i’ve got langdon in the forwards who’ll be out for a month. Considering trading Sicily out down to Taranto. Sicily will probably end up being good value too, but feel that he will probably be targeted and either lose the plot and have off games or miss a week here or there.

    TU: Out – Sicily, In – Taranto
    TD: Hold

  5. Dahlhaus…

    TU – Sideways, won’t be a top 6/8 FWD and don’t want to get left behind.
    TD – Hold, will come good.

  6. First trade(s) of season…

    TU – Injured Crouch for Oliver, and Hibbo for Simpson
    TD – Injured Crouch for Oliver

    1. Could also go:
      – Crouch for Coniglio, Hibbo for Marchbank

      And pepper myself to bring in Zerrett with remaining budget

  7. T/up – Naughton to Bonner
    T/d – Rayner – Taranto
    Comment – hold trades

    I have all the other high scoring def rooks already, only 2 premos -Laird and Hibberd.

    Also considered Rayner to Fisher but wondering if Taranto will end up top 6 or 7 fwd.

    1. Noona.

      I prefer Rayner to Taranto than to Fisher.

      Taranto has DPP and could finish top 10/12 forward this year.

      At worst he could end up F7 / M9 bench cover at years end.

      Fisher is Forward only and will need to be traded at some stage.

      At Fishers price he wont make enough cash to justify the two trades.

      Best of luck this week.

      Ps Can you knit me a Freo scarf ?

      1. Yesshh darling, I can 🙂 Dr who length or Matt Preston cravat style freo scarf?

        And thanks for the sage advice. Have Taranto and loving him in RDT but no McLean, and exactly the opposite in SC, so think I’ll go with the T/d option.

        thanks all 🙂

    1. Naughton to Bonner seems to be a waste. Check FD’s Cow Talk.

      Bont to Cripps or Cogs is worth considering especially with the Dogs looking like they will struggle at least early this season.

    1. Don’t like O’Connor’s J/S. He was a last-minute call up last week. You could get Murphy instead, save you a few dollars and should make enough cash in the short term.

  10. Solution for hibberd
    T/u straight swap for hurley

    T/d speculative cash grap in shaw/savage/ryan

    Comment hold him

    1. If you’re doing the luxury trade of Hibberd, it needs to add value to your team, either in (a) notably more points, or (b) extra cash & some points.

      Of those options, I would only be recommending Heath Shaw.

      On the chance that Hibberd does return to his previous form, Shaw is the only pick you won’t regret if they score similar, as you will have made some $$$.

    1. If it’s for your C, I’d go Mitchell. He’s the more ‘guaranteed’ option of a reliable C score. If it was for your VC, then you’d take the punt on Mitchell.

      0

      1
      1. Ryan (and Taranto) are far too speculative for my liking. 2nd-year players RARELY score well enough to end up keepers in the long-term.

        0

        0
    1. I would see Taranto as the least likely of those 4 to end up a genuine 95+ keeper, so definitely Shaw & Curnow.

      1

      0
    1. If you’re planning on trading both, then maybe Hibberd first. He has a higher B/E, and has put together two average games. Conversely, Dahlhaus at least scored 88 in his first game (acceptable enough for a FWD), and his role will probably be quite varied across the year (especially with Libba out).

      That being said, there seems to be many more FWD options available to swap Dahlhaus to (vs. who to trade Hibberd to), so it also depends on who you DON’T have, and would like to bring in.

  11. For draft who will score more in rucks. Made the right call last week hoping to get it right this week.
    T/U Martin: flopped against gawn last week but ryderless port looks more appealing
    T/D Goldstein: Looks good so far but the gawn factor again

    1. banfield i think.
      LDU & brayshaw will play all year
      Barry a nice mature age and in favour at port.
      No downside to banfield either just unlucky to be him IMO. kelly is a MUST

      7

      0
    2. Brayshaw. Yes, he might have good J/S, but at almost $200k, he’s not showing signs of being a solid money maker, whereas Barry and Banfield should be solid enough for $150k+ growth.

      Plus, it puts a good chunk of dollars back into your bank to spend elsewhere.

      Out of LDU or Brayshaw, I’d go Brayshaw (just).

  12. I have about $80k extra, and I’m wanting at least one trade done, which will be Lambert.

    Which should these should I do? I may need advice on which player would best for either situations, because I wouldn’t clue.

    TU: Lambert OUT, a forward who’s at least around $470k and above (MacLean, BIllings, Franklin, R. Gray, T Lynch) IN, better chance to score more points.
    TD: Lambert OUT, a forward who’s more so around $400 or less (Curnow, Acres, Taranto, Hogan, Menzel) IN and makes me some more money to buy a better upgrade in a few rounds time.

    1. i like the taranto/curnow. cant go wrong with either! taranto in front marginally. the kids a beast!

      I had lambert and went too L.Ryan i only had 2 rookies though lobb was F6, very deep! Banked 350k from it for dusty in 3-4 rounds.
      if that works for you its worth a thought

      2

      0
    2. Having the extra cash is always handy, and I really like the Curnow pick. The other 4 options seem too risky, and to be honest, none of them were ever really on most people’s radars before the season started.

      However, if you’d rather something a bit less ‘speculative’, then you probably need Billings.

  13. Armitage to T.Kelly.

    TU: Yes do it, Kelly has been outstanding rookie so far.

    TD: Trades are golden.

    Thanks in advance.

  14. I’ve already used one trade this year unfortunately keep that in mind, I wanna trade Landon because he hasn’t exactly set the world on fire and with gws list being so good it dosnt warrent him getting back in the team.

    T/U trade giles-Landon to T English or venables
    T/D save the trades

    5

    12
    1. I’d get English over Venables, as he potentially gives you the future flexibility of trading into your RUCK line if needed.

      But yes, definitely make the trade. You can’t afford to have too many dead rookies sitting on the bench at this early stage of the season. Cash generation is PARAMOUNT.

      Most people will have used at least 2 trades by the end of this round, so don’t stress about that.

  15. I just would like to know if you have Merrett are you trading him?

    TU he’s out of here
    TD staying put

    14
  16. No trades used so far and travelling well. Need to trade out Matt Crouch and don’t yet have Dusty or Danger

    T/U – Straight to Oliver and Langdon to Ryan
    T/D – Trade to Dusty and Brayshaw down to a cheaper rookie (Barry/L Fogarty/Polson/Crowden) to free up the extra $s , keep Langdon for now

    Rest of onfieled mids are Titch, Fyfe, Parker, Cripps, Cogs, Kelly, Holman

    I have all other must have rookies. Not sure whether to spend the extra trade to get Dusty now rather than chase him later in the year…

    5

    2
    1. The 1st option makes more sense, but the problem I see is that you already have a 6-premium midfield, with only 2 spots remaining. If you get Oliver now, that means that, ideally, you’re going to HAVE to save those last 2 spots for both Dangerfield and Martin. This leaves you no room for any other ‘fallen premiums’ in the future.

      Besides this, I think that you REALLY need to have at least 2 of the ‘big 3’ (Dangerfield, Martin, Mitchell) in your team NOW. They’re just too important, and scoring too well to leave out. You’ve been given the opportunity to do this with Crouch’s injury, so I’d definitely do this option.

      Yes, it means sticking Langdon on the bench, but it’s the lesser of two evils.

      As for who to get for Brayshaw, it’s gotta be the mature-ager Barry. He’s playing well, better than his 1st round score of 44 suggests (I believe his DT score was something like 70-75). He will be a solid pick.

      1. Yes but as they are playing each other was asking the ? Into Dangerfield. Ie will either get a tag this week…. Cheers

        1. As I said, you’re wanting the VC, so I’d choose Martin. He’s the better option for VC, as he has a greater likelihood of going BANG (Martin had 8 x 130+ games last year, Mitchell only had 5).

          Conversely, Mitchell is the ‘safer’ option for the C, as he consistently scores 110-130, whereas Martin is more likely to throw in sub-100 scores.

          And yes, there are suggestions / reports that Richmond will pay extra attention to Mitchell.

        1. Fair enough. I’d say the same about Fisher, especially as he’s only a 2nd-year player. But, to each his own.

          0

          0
          1. Christensen is a player that always goes missing which restricts his average. If he doesn’t kick goals (which is common), he scores below 60. Fisher is more of a risk only being 19, but has potential for a higher average and ceiling.
            Also: Christensen has never averaged over 1 goal per game in any season he has played. His 3 goal/100 point game is an anomaly in my opinion

  17. Lambert to:

    TU. Taranto
    TD. L.Ryan ( would make 350k in bank for dusty)
    Comment. C.Curnow

    deep in my fwd line so going ryan cant hurt would field fritsch F6. thoughts please
    FWD line; heeney, lambert**, McLean, Smith, Sicily, Lobb (fritsch langdon)

    0

    5
    1. I would have definitely gone with Curnow, but with such a stacked FWD line already, I think you need the rookie.

      Alternately, if you’re not concerned about this, maybe you could go:

      Lambert to Curnow
      Langdon to Ryan

      No point having a dead rookie on the bench for a month. Gotta generate the cash.

      1

      1
      1. Have gone lambert to ryan just with such a heavy fwd line Ryan made sense especially when it leaves 460k in bank for dusty, Exciting times.
        Langdon I’ll hold this week and will trade him to either j.Higgins next week just want a look at him first.
        Would love ya thoughts on hibberd too David. Gotta hold surely?

    1. Hibberd is a bit of a luxury trade, but if you were determined to trade him, I’d rather go down to Shaw. Will probably score close to Simpson from her on, and you save cash, which can help justify the trade.

  20. Hi Community,

    I’ve had a great start to the year but the one I got wrong was Marley Williams. He was my roughy, and it’s failed.

    TD: Savage

    Thanks

  21. Didnt start with t.mitchell or dusty.

    Zorko looks like he’s getting tagged each week

    Tu: trade out Zorko for dusty or Mitchell
    Td: hold fire

    0
    1. I think you definitely need at least 2 of Dangerfield, Martin & Mitchell at this early stage, and while it’s quite a risk / luxury to trade out a playing premium, I would definitely consider trading Zorko to one of them.

    Zorko to Danger
    Hibberd to Simpson (10k left)

    Langdon to Taranto/Cripps
    (15k left but Fritsch/Brayshaw won’t be playing)

    1. Don’t trade Zorko m8, he is just the type of guy to come out and score a 140 after you trade him out if he is given a free run at it…

  25. T/U
    Hibberd to Simpson

    T/D
    Hibberd to Bonner with cash to spare for Brayshaw/Garlett to Z.Merrett in 1/2 weeks
    Usually not one to burn unnecessary trades but unsure Zerrett will be as cheap by the time upgrades start. T/D would require a lot of cash unspent which is generally a bad idea.

  27. Decided to go:

    Hibberd – Shaw
    Langdon – Fisher

    Hibberd to Shaw is a little sideways for my liking but it’s swapping someone with a possible negative role change to someone with a probable positive role change PLUS it’s saving me 87.1K. Whilst Langdon could be a loophole option GWS have a few early in round games ahead so Langdon is a little dead weight on the bench. Fisher seems to be getting more midfield time, higher possession count and hitting the scoreboard as well.

    1

    1
      1. Personally I think getting Fisher in is a bit of a waste.

        You will need to make 2 trades to get him in and out.He is a Forward only.At $260K he will best case only make $180K/$200K
        I do like his new role and Bolton seems to like his speed around the ball. If you started him great. I just can’t see him as a keeper.
        So 2 trades for under $200K seems like a waste.

        Hibberd to Heater is worth considering but I’m going to wait a week to get more info. It may cost me some cash, but it could also save me a trade.

        Best of luck this week Roo Bloke.

  28. Need some thoughts. No trades used last week.

    T/U Hibberd and Dow to Bonner and Coniglio
    T/D – Hold

    Reasons for the trade – Bonner and Coniglio going to go up in value, go from $25k – $75k in the bank and I see Coniglio as being a keeper in the midfield.

    Main reason against is obviously save the trades but without needing to use any last week I’m ok with 2 corrections to set myself up for this weekend.

    Thoughts?

    2

    1
    1. All depends on what you think Bonner is going to do from here. Worst case his scoring slows down and he earns you a few $$ before you trade him. Best case he pulls through as a top 10 defender and he’s your luxury upgrade come SC finals.

      2

      1
      1. Port looking like a solid outfit this year so I feel he can potentially continue his good scoring. Usual mantra of not knee-jerking on premo’s is obviously back of mind but I just feel Hibberd’s role is potentially too different this year for him to consistently score.

        The other benefit is having the cash to turn Dow (who hasn’t shown much) into Coniglio and really beef up the midfield.

        1

        1
  29. trading LDU out
    tu – cripps and 20k
    td – coniglio and 100k
    i think theyll score similar and i get the extra cash.
    althought coniglio cant play any better but doesnt score great compared to cripps.

    1

  30. trading out giles-langdon for another rookie, already have ryan and venables

    T/U: J Garlett
    T/D: B Gowers
