  2. Austin to Lynch is my trade this week.

    It leaves me with 5 trades and $190k for my final M8 upgrade soon.

    Why? Team announcements have cased me to change tact with my trades. Austin and Nathan Brown are due back at the same time, I think this is bad news for Austin. So, I am thinking it is worth trading him. I am not sure of Lynch’s js but from what I can tell he has slipped into the role Richards had before he went forward. Plus the Dogs have a long list of injuries so if he keeps performing he is a chance to remain in the team and follow the lead of Richards and Gowers. Any additional information will be handy btw.

    Is my thinking sounds or flawed?

  3. In a similar position , if I trade Rice to Lynch it will leave 4 trades plus 220k .
    Still have Hibberd and Nank as last upgrades , although not so concerned about moving Nank on. Only in two leagues but they will both come down to the wire.
    T/U Hang on to that trade
    T/D Take the money for a better upgrade

  4. Sound thinking Jester.

    Its easy to cover Mid /Fwd with all the DPPs.
    Defensive cover will be harder to find if you don’t have the Sicily swing with Keefe or Brander.
    Lynch seems to have solid Js.
    I would getting him myself if I didn’t still have Hibberd and Doedee at D6/D7.

    Having a decent D7 is a very wise move.

      1. Yeah thanks.

        I plan to keep him all year at D6/7.
        I can’t fricken wait to upgrade Hibberd.
        Webster and Hurley are auditioning this week for his spot!

        1. I noticed Hibberd has a low BE and Websters is high. Hopefully the timing will work our perfectly for you!

  5. 6 trades left

    Looking at a cash grab only

    Austin out for 2 weeks < Lynch -71 be, have no defence cover this round with Austin & J Smith out!

    T/U … Well worth it, Catta
    T/D ….Hold Catta

    1. Similar position here Catta. I am not convinced Austin will get a game ahead of N.Brown so will trade him (read above). Hopefully Lynch can hold his spot like Richards and Gowers have. Hopefully.

      1. Agreed,

        I understand Lynch has had serious hamstring issues in 2017 & again early in 2018 but seems to be in control of his body now as WB gave him ample time this time around to get right!

        I hope his body holds up for 2 months, there’s not a lot on the horizon for cash grabbing but things can change pretty quickly with teams putting the cue in the rack!

        1. I hope his hammy’s hold out too. The upside is … perhaps his body kept him out of the team rather than his ability. #hopeful

  6. Looking for a replacement for Bontempelli. Should I follow the pack or go for something different?

    My midfield is currently Mitchell, Cripps, Neale, Dangerfield, Oliver, Coniglio, Martin, BONTEMPELLI (Phillips, Ahern, Dawson).

    Thumbs up Westhoff (leaving $12,000)
    Thumbs down Shuey (saving me $122,200)

    Would leave me with 6 trades left

      1. Sloane maybe?

        He could be captain next week with Tex being looked at by the MRP.

        Any LTI’s to Mids this week and he would be my “value option”replacement.

        Side note.

        I’m not just talking up Sloane based on last nights numbers. I owned him all last year and he has a HUGE ceiling.
        Fit now,with a fat new contract,and at just over $500k.
        He could be a great POD.

        Side side note…

        Wines has been Sh#t since he signed his new contract!

  7. Looking to trade Richards to Lynch (both WBD) to leave me with $284,700 ITB and 7 trades remaining. I should win this week in H2H, so should I:

    TU: Save the trade, play Ainsworth (WCE) on field for Bont. 7 trades left.
    TD: Trade Bont out for Oliver. 6 trades left.

    Rest of midfield is Titch, Cripps, Danger (looped), Westhoff, Crouch, Coniglio, Rocky (Fyfe and Dawson on bench)

  8. In a post last night I posed the question as to which 2 to field out of Ablett/Neale/Rockliff.
    The community went Neale & Rockliff
    I decided to back in he Supercoach GOAT and he tonned up.
    Now the question is who to field out of Rockliff / Neale

    t/up Rockliff
    t.dn Neale

    I have a feeling they may cancel each other out as I could imagine Rockliff tagging Neale but then again if Neale isn’t tagged…..

  9. Do I need to replace Bontempelli? I can cover his absence easily enough in the short term.

    Is he definitely out for the next few weeks, or is it safe for me to wait and see?

    1. 2-3 weeks apparently to go from an operating table having your appendix out to back on the football field.

    2. I should have added that I only have 3 trades left.

      TU: Cut your losses now.
      TD: Hold/wait-and-see.

  10. Trading Savage to Hoff ??? Will leave me on 5 trades (rank 55)

    TU: Trade , will gain you points
    TD: Hold wait for webster or greene as a pod

    1. I’d bring him in now, more important to get points on the board.

      Say you wait until next week, you’ll miss out on maybe 20-30 points this week? For Greene / Webster to be a better play, they would have to outscore Westhoff by those 20-30 points, plus whatever he scores to the end of the year (Westhoff’s average is in the 104-107 range, depending on if you’re using season or 3-round). So you’d be counting on Greene / Webster averaging 110+? Greene has had a long time off, I doubt he’ll be able to maintain a 110+ average on return (he’ll probably score this week and have a dip next, as that is fairly common with mid- to long-term injuries). And Webster went off with a groin complaint I believe, so I would not feel comfortable picking him at this stage.

  11. What is everyones option on Redman to Lynch? The trade actually costs me $10k, but I currently have no def cover. I have 5 trades left, and next week will have the $ to upgrade Austin to TMAC to go full premo, so I’ll be left with 3 trades.

    TU – Good idea
    TD – You idiot

  12. I have to bench one of the following four players (2-part question):

  13. How’d Webster’s injury look? Going to be weeks missed I assume? I didn’t catch last nights game..
    I had two trades happening today:
    Holman—> Trengove (thank god I didn’t do this early)
    Hibberd —> Lloyd (this is in jeopardy now after Webster)

    Only have 7 trades left & 77k
    Might go Holman —> sier now and hold off on hibberd, damn!
    Any advice or insight appreciated

    1. Do you have a rookie d/m like Smith to put in to the mids for Holman, albeit he’s not playing & grab a Lynch ( WB ) defence rookie on the bubble with a be of -71?

      This is assuming you have other mid bench cover!

  15. Any news on Webster?
    I was going to trade Boak to Lloyd via Sicily but if misses a few I may have to save a trade for Webster.

    1. I was going hibberd to Lloyd but I’ve held off till I know more on Webster. Unfortunately he is losing a heap of cash I am pretty sure his BE was huge still and only scored 80
