  2. thanks for that motts.
    i have 12 left, but im thinking of doing:
    OUT: Martin
    IN: O’keefe

    OUT: Banner
    IN: Gysberts

    then i’ll switch Higgins and O’keefe around, bench Higgins and put either Gysberts or Bastinac on the ground.

    I am hoping to get Broughton back soon, hopefully this week, then bench maguire.

    My only problem would then be only no cover in the forward line…

    I will have 10 left after this week, so i’m going ok…

    1. what does everyone think? I know Martin should still go up, but i will cop 3 zeros if i dont do a double trade…i could cash in on bastinac and get gysberts, but i’d rather have 2 backups for the mids…

  3. I currenty have 8 but with Hille going down i’m going to be down to 7 if i straight swap for Kreuzer…

  4. Injury-ravaged after last round and only 6 trades left. I’d be stuffed without DPP and after much switching and swapping I’ve managed to get fit players in every position for this week (assuming Silvagni takes the field).

    I’ve got a whopping $2,751,800 worth of value warming the pine – Maguire, Kennelly, Higgins, Gram, Hille, Lobbe, Pods and P. Davis.

        1. if i’d moved the C from GAJ to Godd and Pods was withdrawn allowing Rockys 140 my ute team would have scored 2756, enuff to have one hand on the wheel…

          Backs: Godd Hodge Scotland Eski Enright Waters Goose (Sheppard Weston)
          Mids: GAJ Montagna Coons Barlow Judd Dangerfield (Shuey Bail)
          Rucks: Cox Kreuzer (Warnock Roughie)
          Fwds: Chappy Pav Didak JB ROK Pods Waite (Rockliff Petersen)
          ten trades 100k
          any suggestions??

    1. Interesting theory …… wait til after two rounds so you can see whose going to be the good recruits and who is not, also you’ll skip a few injuries and can better assess who are the $300-$400K players about to go boom.

      You deserve the car if you get it cause this theory is golden. Just hope that you only have one team for your sake if you get the Ute or i’m sure they’ll snatch the keys off you el pronto.

  6. 5 Trades to go and Hille to replace as I have no bench cover..
    Ryder or Sandilands?

    thinking Ryder is on the way up in form and Sandi is on his way down.
    If I choose Ryder I’ll have money to do an emergancy upgrade of Mitchell come finals if he is still sucking..

    Or should I just go with Sandi and be done with it..?

    1. Have a think about this: one of your bench rucks (which I’m guessing includes Warnock) to Jesse White of Sydney and then you can bench Hille for a couple. White has only missed one game this year.

        1. I didn’t have him to begin with but he did seem to be finding some form of late. This option also gives you coverage on the bench once he comes back in a couple of weeks.

          1. Intersestingly, Tom Bellchambers was BOG for the Dons’ reserves side. Not sure if that’ll get him a gig, and even less sure if he’ll retain his spot when Hille returns.

  7. ii’ve got kreuze, hille and warnock. scrolled down and was amazed to see angus graham averaging 102. only played the past 4 games but still worth a serious consideration. and with simmonds out will surely play every game. downside is he plays for richmond, is young, they play some handy opponents with good ruckmen over the next 6weeks and he will probably drop off…but who knows!

    1. Thanks PA.

      Can anyone give me advice about my trades?
      I have
      ->Maguire-2-4 Weeks
      ->Hille-2 weeks
      ->Higgins-2+ weeks. [I reckon it could be more though]

      9 trades and 115k. I have reserves for both Def [Hopefully schmidt comes back] and reserves for Higgins [Bastinac or Rockcliff]. However i dont have a reserve for Hille.

      Should i trade out trade out Higgins->Gysberts and Hille->Sandilands or just play one player down this week?
      –>BTW the league im in is pretty easy so i’m 8-0 with two possible games i could lose [one which is this week].

      OR…should i just save my trades hope that Higgins performs when he comes back, Upgrade Hille->Cox/[Sandilands-If he falls] and just play a reserve for the next few weeks for Maguire and spend the trades in the last 6 rounds?

  9. Due to injuries I want to trade either maguire or kenelly for fisher or shaw any thoughts which would be better long term

    1. I like Fisher more than Shaw. Since he hasn’t been having the best of weeks. And the Saints have a relatively easy draw in the last four rounds. I would trade out Maguire instead of Kennelly as it says he should be coming back soon and you’ve kept him the past few weeks anyways.

  10. Potentially good news for those who kept him –

    “SYDNEY defender Tadhg Kennelly could make a surprise return from a knee injury against Port Adelaide on Saturday night”.

  11. 16 to go mate …… might need to traqde this week with Higgins being out for a few. Also … the POD is a worry …. but he’ll sit it out on the bench if required.
