Poll – R1 Trading Strategy

Written by MJ on March 31 2016

I’m expecting a few varying degrees of responses to this question, as naturally everyone is different in the way they play the game. Historically, I have very rarely made a trade after R1, backing my boys in for another crack at it before any price changes. I know many however, who will use the opportunity before league matches begin, to plug a few holes that have started to appear, knowing that there may be more than two seemingly must-have selections next week on the cusp of the all-important first price rises, particularly in the rookie department.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

  1. I hope to go without trading until it’s cow season. If forced by serious injury than I will of course deal with that, but aside from Dea I picked all my guys for a reason. Well, him too, but I didn’t like getting him; I felt him better than having to put A. McDT on the field but I don’t like him. But, now that he is here, he stays until it’s time to harvest.

  2. I’m usually 100% against trading first round (barring LTI or suspension), but with Mitch Robinson out for up to 2 weeks, maybe more, should I trade him for Wingard? Or just chuck him on the bench and put Menadue on the field?

  3. My philosophy for this round is to look at what you’ll want to do next round before price changes occur.

    If you look at your team and think you only need to make one or two correctional trades then HOLD your ground this week. Trades later in the season is vital and your pre-season selection could bounce back this week.

    If you look at your team and think that you’ve made some grave errors and you’ll need to make three or four correctional trades then you’ll need to get onto it this week but prioritise your trades and try to limit it to only one trade this week.

    Now, what constitutes a correctional trade?

    Let’s be clear. Fyfe to Danger IS NOT A CORRECTIONAL TRADE. Say it with me ppl!!

    I’m talking a significant miss like looking at your rookies and realising you haven’t got Ben Kennedy but you’ve got Matthew Uebergang. As great as it would be to hear Dennis Cometti call his name as he runs down the outer wing at Subiaco it’s not likely to happen and you need to make a CORRECTIONAL TRADE.

    I look at my team and i’m unhappy with the round one performances by Fyfe, Houli and Dusty but I’m not rage trading them out of the team. If Fyfe pulls another 61 in round 2 it’ll be something to consider though but i’ll back the man child in to ton up this round.

    The only correctional trades i can see myself making NEXT WEEK are Callum Sinclair to Zac Smith plus maybe using the other to make a rookie correctional trade.

  4. As I tend to suffer every week with the “itchy finger” syndrome, I find it very therapeutic to do the rage trades (I’m talking about you Fyfe, Barlow, H Shaw & Rockliff) as it always makes me feel better, then always REVERSE the trades as mentioned above by Roo Blake, as they are not correctional trades, more like irrational ones after only one round. I also repeat the supercoach mantra ” You picked your premiums for a reason – leave them alone”.
    I certainly prefer seeing that i have 30 trades available for as long as I can hold out….

  5. whether to Pap or not to Pap? i’ve got petracca sitting on the bench due to a lack of good rookie forwards, but with Papley’s performance i’m wondering if he’s worth trading in. i guess the smart move is to wait another week and see how he goes…..but that’s not much fun 🙂

  6. Really can’t see Robbie keeping that scoring level going for 2 weeks let alone a month. He’s good for us at NMFC but he just doesn’t play a high scoring role.

  7. Currently have Robinson and will assess Friday evening after Richmonds game. I have Menadue covering so if he puts out a decent score (75-80+) I will possibly hold for the week and reassess him next week. If not, I will definitely move him on.

    Calf’s are not a fun injury. Deledio’s 1 week calf injury last season ended up being a 4 week rest on the sidelines and i’m not willing to risk something similar with Robbo. I will most likely be wanting to make two rookie correctional trades next week and may not have the luxury if he misses again.
