Sack McNeil T/U
Sack Little Berry T/D
Shai Bolten or Bailey Dale for forward line?
Shai Bolten tonnes up twice in a row now. But with Prestia coming back next week possibly does this bring him back down.
Bailey Dale is taking a lot of the kick ins now but has only tonnes up once with a big 129 last week.
Both have low breakevens which one of these will be top 6 by end of year?
Provided B.Campbell plays
M8 for this week:
TU – J.Jordon
TD – B.Campbell
Who to field in draft league in final mid slot?
TU – C.Ward
TD – T.Kelly
Anyone know what happens now that WA is in lockdown??!!
Been confirmed on Sky news that game goes on but no crowd.
Freo v Roos match in Perth with no crowd will be a normal crowd
Looking for some advice on what to do at the moment with the squad. Last week traded out May and Dow to Short and Waterman.
As it stands my team looks like this:
DEF: Lloyd, Laird, Stewart, Short, Clark, L.Jones (Kosi, Highmore)
MID: Oliver, ZMerrett, Neale, Titch, Crippa, Gulden, Powell, Berry (Jordon, A.Scott, Downie)
RUC: Gawn, Grundy (Flynn)
FWD: Dunkley, Ziebell, Warner, Campbell, Rowe, Waterman (Brockman, Treacy)
25 trades left, $49,400 ITB
Save trades and let the rookies mature.
Okay hopefully either Kosi, Clark and Highmore play
There’s a couple of rookies there that didn’t get named so I’d probably suggest Clark and Campbell out for McCreery. Then either downgrade Clark to Mansell to get a warm body this week and build up the bank or upgrade him to a defender who isn’t more expensive than $470k. This is a risky price range for sure but any of Witherden, Sholl, Jiath, Doedee, D Howard, Bachar or Aliir Aliir would fit and could all be fine picks. Doedee and Howard are both going fine this year so that’s where I’d start but CJ is perfect for SC this year
All good , no crowds
Would any bubble rookies be deemed too good to miss this round?
I could trade a nonplaying rookie as I have a spare trade this round.
Need some last minute advice guys,
Here’s my team:
Def: Laird, Short, Bowes, Chapman, L. Jones, J. Clark (Ridley, Kosi)
Mid: Neale, Merrett, Dunkley, Petracca, Cripps, Goulden, Powell, Jordan (Brockman, Bruhn, Holmes)
Ruck: Gawn, Grundy (Flynn)
Fwd: Martin, T. Walker, Ziebell, Warner, Rowe, Scott (Waterman, Fullarton)
Thinking of moving Fullarton for McCreary or F. Macrae, then J. Clark to T. Stewart as have cash in bank. Good idea? Or better options?
I like the Fullarton to mcreery, mcreery looked the type of competitive player that will stay in the side. Clark to Stewart definitely if Clark is still out otherwise hold him a while longer?
Yep sounds like a good idea mate
I’d keep fullarton for the dpp, use him when u trade flynn and move him to r3 mate
What’s the thoughts on Houston, Highmore or Kosch to play to avoid a Donut. Do I wait it out and hope 1 plays or trade Dan?
I was think of going T Phillips to Dunkley this week.
TU – Phillips to Dunkley
TD – No trades
Current team before any changes
Lloyd, Short, Houston, Bowes, Daniel, N. Cox (Highmore, Kosch)
McRea, Oliver, Walsh, Taranto, Gulden, Powell, Campbell, J.Jordan (S Berry, McNeil, Brockman)
Dusty, Ziebell, Impey, Phillips, Warner, Rowe (A Scott, Waterman)
They’re saying Houston should get up, although nothing concrete as of yet. If he doesn’t, Kos should get another taste – didn’t play VFL today and Nash likely goes before him.
You just need one of them to play, should be alright.
Worst case scenario they both miss, I’d still bring in Dunkley. He can score enough to make up for the 40~ Kos would have scored covering Houston.
TU Dougal Howard
TD Aliir Aliir
Comment any other defender up to $429k.
Trading Clark and Campbell, and relying on Highmore to play to avoid a donut in defence
Trade Campbell to:
T/up – Deven Robertson
T/down – Beau McCreery
Jordan Clarke out
trade in mansell
Trade in mcreery
This is my exact dilemma!
Is Highmore to Mansell worth it? Worried about his JS
TU – Yes
TD – No
T/U- Get J.Macrae and jump early on F.Macrae… 11k left
T/D – Straight swap to Dusty…96k left
Assuming they both play
Or let them fatten up
Both omitted, pull the trigger on those trades.
Legit have no idea what to do.
Would love any advice
DEF: Lloyd, Laird, Stewart, Docherty, Clark, Chapman, (Highmore, Chugg)
MID: Oliver, Bont, Neale, Boak, Cripps, Gulden, Powell, Jordon, (Campbell, McNeil, Downie)
RUCK: Gawn, Grundy, (Flynn)
FWD: Dunkley, Ziebell, Impey, Warner, Rowe, Waterman, (Scott, Henry)
Couple of options to plug that DEF hole. You could just go #1) Clark -> Mansell or get aggressive and go #2) Gulden -> F. Macrae and Clark -> Bowes.
Option #1) tides you over for this week and you have an extra trade, but you’d then have to rely on Mansell at D6 (holds until Vlastuin back or Ralphsmith debuts) or Highmore coming back.
Option #2) fixes that DEF donut and gives you a completed back line bar Chapman at D6, who can sit there for a while np. Only qualification is you have to rate the Bowes pick.
Hope that sorta helps, best of luck.
Also, make sure you E Scott in case Waterman is dropped. Played in the VFL.
You reckon maybe doing a double downgrade.
So Clark -> Mansell
and Campbell -> F. Macrae
Thinking Fyfe vc into Gawn capt thoughts on Fyfe only playing north in west
Fyfe and Gawn are both playing at the same time
Not sure which way to go on this:
Current def: Lloyd, Laird, mills, Daniel, jiath – rookies: kozi, highmore & sharp.
TU: double downgrade this week: berry & Campbell to Mansell & McCreey.
Puts $266k ITB.
Next week Phillips to Neale – then bring in Ridley when he bottoms out to finish def line.
TD: Phillips & Campbell to Stewart & McCreey.
Puts 22k ITB
Deals with def rookie problems.
Could still bring in Ridley and swing Laird into mids.
Would probably have to miss picking up Neale next week. So hoping he has another stinker this week and then grab him in a fortnight.
Great to get everyone’s response
Trading out Clark and Campbell, also have 200k in the bank
T/U: McCreery and any DEF I want (Lloyd, Stewart, Ryan ETC)
T/D: Mansell and any MID I want (Steele, Fyfe, Lyons)
Who will be the best defender for the rest of the year currently under $480000?
Jiath? Duggan? Bowes is close to $480,000 too.
It’s a pretty even field around that mark but these are the ones that I think have a good chance: Lever / Jiath / Sholl / B. Smith / Salem.
I’d probably go with Lever (one bad score in round 2) or Jiath (cheaper) but B. Smith is also tempting at that price as his low scores were in rounds 1 and 2 and he’s averaged about 114 over the past three rounds (a Crows fan could correct me on this but I think he’s getting more midfield time due to injuries).
Salem is pretty up-and-down with his scoring and Sholl’s average is flattered by his 160 against North.
If you can’t split them, maybe look at their byes?
Any thoughts or other ideas would be appreciated.
Trade 1 .
Trade Clark to Treacy, swing Cox to defence to cover donut from clark, Swing Treacy to R3 when Flynn has made his money…
Not confident on mansell or mcreery holding there spots.
Dependent on Sunday selections.
I also have Berry in mids with no cover on bench after missing the emergency on McNeil.
Ridley in defence missing would need koz or highmore to play to cover his donut.
Take Scott’s 65 or roll dice on waterman
TU take it
TD roll away
Who to trade for Mcreery:
Campbell will play a lot more not sure about mccreery JS.
Moving Clark to Ryan to avoid a donut down back.
Best rookie to get in for Campbell for the move?
T/U – McCreery
T/D – Macrae
TU Phillips to Neale
TD Phillips will come good. Save the trade and cash.
24 trades left, 113K in the bank, donut if Highmore doesn’t play, and in a 50/50 cash league match.
TU: Clark & Phillips -> Mansell & Oliver
TD: Save the trades, hope and pray
Who to trade out
TD – Campbell
Who to trade first?
with j.clarke not named i’m thinking of trading to highmore to avoid a donut and get the cash generation- of course i won’t know if highmore is name before geelong play, it seems likely but not sure i should risk it…..
T/U take the risk he’ll be named
T/D hold fire could be a waste of a trade
Take macrae 140 or gamble on gawn ??
What’s your cut-off for a VC score if 140 isn’t good enough to bank?
Probs 150 right now with gawn the superman
Any more news on Houston?
They’re saying he’s a “test”, no confirmation either way.
Port Adelaide GM of Football Chris Davies says Houston and Hartlett got through training are expected to play tomorrow. One change: Jones for Frederick.
Sorry, missed there was already a poll
Would love some advice! Looking to move Clark and Campbell but stuck between 2 options. Both options allow me to cover a donut in the event that Highmore isn’t named.
TU: Oliver, Mansell
TD: Ryan, McCreery
I’m aware of Mansell’s JS being in question but grabbing Oliver at this price just seems like a no-brainer. Grabbing Ryan means my backline is full of premos when Ridley comes back.
So many outs in defence. Which rookie to bring in? Prior, Mansell or Murphy?
TU: Take Scott’s 66
TD: Play Jordon
I’m moving Clark and Dow out of my team in the short-term (within 3 weeks) but I’m covered for this round as far as on-field players go. Should I move one (or both) on this week? Is Mccreery a ‘must-have’ (i.e., good job security)?
T/U: McCreery should come in this week.
T/D: Hold this week, better options on the horizon.
Thanks in advance and good luck to everyone this week.
Looking to trade in a forward but torn between Shai Bolton, Tom McDonald and Sam Reid. All are in form ATM and due for price rises. Already have Dunkley (now injured), Ziebell, Dusty, Warner, Rowe, Impey.
TU – Bolton
TD – McDonald
? – Reid
Any thoughts / comments appreciated.
I will be out of trades before the byes I think. Who to replace Dunkley??
Bring in for Clark
TU – sholl
TD – jiath
Tu – McCreery
Td – Mitch Lewis Haw.
Do any Hawk fans know of his job security. Will he be picked this week. Sort of favouring to bring him in as like his numbers and be. Thoughts? Thanks.
Hi community – interested to learn whether people think N. Murphy will play or be the med sub ?
TU – Yes
TD – No
T/u – Take Bont 127
T/d – Stick with Gawn
Any news on Hunter Clark? Is he playing?
Got a spare trade, should I go Cripps to Andy Brayshaw and also bank 20k?
Who to field?
TU – McCreery
TD – F Macrae
Trade brockman for bergman to avoid the donut, yeh or nah ?
feel like i dont need to koz il win my league match and wanna save a trade ..
but on the other hand bergman much better JS i guess now that jones out and bergman seems the best fwd rookie at the moment.. ?
cant see any other coming into bubble territory other than F macrae who will come in next week any way
Trade Brockman for McCreery to get some extra cash for next week’s Dunkley/Cripps/Clark replacements?
Already sat on Highmore or Clark for my D6 points and unlikely to win my main cash league, just setting up for next week. 24 trades left & 113K ITB.
TU: Do it
TD: Save the trade
