Trade Or Hold – Luke Ryan (FRE)

Written by Schwarzwalder on July 30 2019

He’s been one of the top defenders of 2019 but left the ground early over the weekend with a paltry 48pts.  Coming into SC-Finals we need every fit body on the field, especially our premiums.  So what would you do with Luke Ryan?

  1. Only have 1 trade left and it looks like I’ll have to use it on Ryan if he’s out for more than two weeks, which seems to be the consensus atm.

    Problem is I’ve only got 452,700 to find a replacement, which leaves me just short of guys like Stewart, Smith or Vlastuin. So right now I’m looking at Kade Simpson (provided he’s named at HFB) or even H. Clark?

    Thoughts? Any other ideas?

    1. GD when you work out this dilemma let me know lol. Same boat here. Ive got 449k so am thinking Lachie Weller.

      1. Lol. We’re f*cked.

        Also looked at Weller, just doesn’t have that ceiling. Hmm.

        We could always wait a week for Stewart (120) and Laird (108) to (hopefully) miss their B.E’s, lose cash and then bring them in the following week?

        Then again, them missing their B.E’s would exactly inspire me with confidence to then bring them in lol.

          1. Think it’s out of Clarke and Simpsom for me. There is Andrews, but he’s got too low a floor and plays a key defender. Argh.

            Will put it to the 2UP thread on Thursday.

              1. Agreed DD on Andrews
                Sounds like a plan GD, hopefully Ryan will make a spectacular recovery by then and were fine lol. Maybe should have waited a week on that Gawn move lol

    2. I’m in the same boat, Gunboat.

      Not meaning to rub it in but I have the extra cash needed for one of Houli, Stewart, Laird and Rich.

      Who should I go for?

      Current def: Lloyd, Whitfield, Williams, Hurn, Sicily and Ryan

      Cheers

  2. Bought him in this week as last team upgrade, one trade for 47 points , that’s value.
    Never mind will make up my mind who comes in before the weekend, however I will loop Duursma and if he scores well enough might hold off.

    1. That’s fair. Though as we’ve seen with Hurn, you can’t always be sure that 1 week won’t turn in to 2 or 3 weeks

  3. Was going to use last trade in bring in birchall or even silvagni with bewley to make way (some dpps moved around) but ryan has thrown a spanner. Already have hurn warming pine…
    If its ryan out then rich laird or vlastuin look good options

  4. An angle on this dilemma that noone mentioned is where you are placed in your most important league. If you’re in a top 4 spot you can possibly afford to wait if he’s out for just one but if you scraped into 8th use and abuse your trades to try and nab the upset win.

    1. Fair point, RB. Think most discussions have been “worst case scenario” though, as a 1 weeker is an obvious hold.

      1. As you’re top 10, my advice is why would you listen to a bunch of people that are all lower than you in the rankings.

  5. 2 trades left. DEF is Ryan, Hurn, Laird, Stewart, Lloyd, Whitfield.

    TU: Ryan to Sicily
    TD: Ryan to Birchall
    Comment: Simpson, Jones, Hartlett, Clark?

    1. Same! Covered Hurn last week like an absolute pro, and that cheeky goal at the end was worth 15 SC lol. So good.
