TU: Jack Steele
TD: Touk Miller
Trades? Any chance we can get some more?
Laird picked up a shoulder injury on the weekend but played on. Check how he tracks during the week.
That 100k of extra value value with Miller just seems quite hard to pass up
The 100k only has value if you can use it.
Do you have a plan or target for it?
I could use it to trade out Briggs to Gawn
Or save it for my last premium upgrade in a week or two
Tom Green to:
TD- Sinclair (via DPP)
Who to Trade Out?
TU- Luke Parker
Will we be getting a fallen premiums article this week? I’ve got 500k to spend on my final DEF or FWD…
Freo Tragic will post Rare Gems later in the week.
Uncertain about Fallen premiums?
TU – Petraaca
TD – Libba
Comment on Miller (POD) AND plays against NM in the SC Grand Final
4 Trades Left
If Grundy is left out again, is it worth going Briggs to Gawn?
This just got tricky…
I’m actually 8k short of a straight Briggs > Gawn trade.
Do I now use 2 trades to go Briggs Sharp > Gawn Rookie leaving me with 2 trades left for the season?
This is all under the assumption Gawn goes back to solo rucking permanently and Grundy is kept out.
I’ll simplify it for you with one question Blackboard. What do think is the likelihood of Grundy being permanently kept out and not playing with Melbourne again this year?
TU Touk Miller
TD Patrick Cripps
3 trades left currently sitting 5th in league but only one win ahead of 9th and have one upgrade to do
T/u use on trade for sheldrick to jez cameron
T/d use 2 trades and bring in a 500-600k fwd or def
If i go with option 2
T/u bring i dunkley (means melican is my backline cover)
T/d bring in sinclair (means seamus mitchell is my back line cover)
I like sinclairs opponents next 2 weeks but dunkley was mr consistent b4 injury
Cover? What a luxury…
Sydney: Lewis Melican. “Unfortunately Lewis Melican is going to be out for probably 3-4 weeks with a hamstring. He’s had a terrible run with soft tissue injuries.” John Longmire
Cheers! Hmmm despite the feedback im leaning to sinclair based on that info. If im running with one trade after this round would prefer to have mitchell on bench
If you’re doing two trades, could bring in Dewar ($102k WCE def/fwd) as your downgrade to try and have Mitchell then able to cover both lines?
DEF – Daicos, Stewart, Dawson, Ryan, Sinclair, Lloyd (Banks, Constable)
MID – Merrett, Petracca, Laird, Serong, Green, Macrae, Walsh, Johnson (Wagner, Roberts, Drury)
RUC – English, Marshall (Madden)
FWD – Dunkley, Gulden, Rozee, Taranto, Coniglio, Sheezel (Maric, Buller)
2 trades and $196k remaining
I unfortunately had to use two trades last week, otherwise I would’ve had only 19 playing. My original plans last round was to downgrade Johnson to Wagner and hold onto Sheldrick for another few week, so I could use one trade to upgrade him eventually and not waste another downgrade to do that. But that didn’t happen. Thankfully Johnson didn’t score far off his BE, so he didn’t lose much money. Other trade was Mitchell to Rozee, and that ended up being a decent trade.
So my plans to have a full “premo” is in dire straits. With Green doing a slight hammy, I’m not sure how long he’ll be gone for. The first report was possibly 3 weeks, but I’m hoping that it’s downgraded to 1-2 weeks. If that ends up being the case, then I will hold onto him. If not, I may have to do my final trades this week to make a bold idea work to have somewhat full premo side.
If Green is gone for at least 3 weeks, I’m considering outing him and Johnson for Parish and Dusty. A very bold call, but I have my reasons.
Parish has been very consistent, only scoring under 90 once (which was an adequate 82) and 8 tons to his name so far. To me he’s a reliable player to score something at least decent and won’t disappoint you, which was actually the reason why I chose Rozee over Butters last week (same story as Parish, only one score under 90).
Dusty is the bigger bold call obviously. My theory is after being moved back into the midfield more under McQualter, his scores have progressively gotten better with more freedom to his gameplay. Most recently he’s score 2 tons in the last fortnight, and those to me are hopeful signs.
But yeah this all if Green’s situation is as bad or worse as first though. If he’s under 3 weeks, I’ll just wait on Maric, Banks or Wagner to make a bit more and then downgrade to a mega cheap rookie and use the remaining cash to upgrade Johnson to a premo.
Here’s my TU/TD if Green is out for 3+ weeks
TU – Green and Johnson > Parish and Dusty
TD – Some other trade plan
If anyone has better idea for what I should be doing, please let me know
Mills & Libratore?
with 6 weeks still to play Id be holding both those trades until absolutely necessary.
Who is Rebecca? Seeing that nickname for a player that is injured apparently
Struggling with a Sheldrick replacement. Looking at:
TU: Darcy Moore
TD: Kane Farrell
Noah Balta, Zak Jones also in price bracket
George Hewitt and bank $90k
Operation Get Tim English In
Mitchell > Harvey
Wilmot > Miller
Leaves me enough cash itb to go ROB > English next week
Mitchell > Harvey
ROB > English
Leaves me enough cash itb to go Wilmot > Touk/Parish/Serong/Cerra next week, but I have to play Wilmot on field one more week.
Both options leave me with 2 trades left.
Leaning towards option 2 because I’m worried that English will go bananas this week vs Essendon and ROB will get towelled up by Gawn, and I’m in desperate need of league wins to make finals.
Is Keays a trade out? Or hold (only 1 trade left)
Hi everyone, current team before any trades. 3 left $16k ITB
Def: Naicos Sic Stewart Dawson Sinclair Day ( Cincotta Dewar)
Mid: Bont Zerett Neale Tracc Laird Libba Bray Mills (Davey Constable Harvey)
Rucks: Witts RoMo ( Madden)
Fwd: Dunks Gulden Rozee Taranto Cogs Sheezel (Maric Harrison)
Team looks great, I would hold these 3 trades till finals.
Anyone have an update on Tom Green please?
Tom Green is expected to miss another fortnight after sustaining a low-grade hamstring at training last week.
GWS injury report.
Tom Green replacement…
T/U – Straight trade to LDU/Touk/Jelly (1 trade left)
T/D – Use my final two trades and grab Dawson/Libba
A decision I must make this week. Do I continue with Briggs as my R2 or trade in Big Maxy. I have 3 trades left and enough coin to get Max this week – with his low BE, I won’t get this chance again.
TU – Keep Briggs as R2, the cash and the trades.
TD – Get Max, keep 2 trades for finals.
Best Sean Darcy replacement.
Need some help with this one please! 4 trades left –
T/U – Straight swap Green for Touk
T/D – Green and Wardlaw for Libba and a playing rookie (Harvey/Peris)… leaving me with 2 trades and an extra 70k
Libba costs $87k more than Touk so another variation is your second option with Touk instead of Libba.
Green & Wardlaw to Touk & (Harvey/Peris) leaving you with 2 trades and an extra $157K to upgrade a weak position to a proper or better premo. That could be Clarry when he comes back in.
That’s some good thinking – thanks for the reply, appreciate it.
Which Cameron up front?
TU: J. Cameron & C. Petracca
TD: D. Cameron & L. Davies-Uniacke
3 Trades, want to push into top 1000
Considering Marshall to Gawn. As long as Grundy stays in ressies and Laird is good to go.
Only 3 trades. Not worth it
Not worth it..Marshall could go 130+ vs NM
Not sure if I should keep Green or trade him (to Miller).
I have cover, Chesser.
Have two rookies on field though, Wardlaw and Cunningham.
I know Wardlaw is out
5k in the bank
8 trades left with 2 boosts
TU: Trade Green
TD: Work on trading the two rookies out (over two weeks)
I’d use a boost and get rid of green plus both on field rookies for 2 upgrades and a cheap rookie.
Who to bring in this week?
Getting in early with this
Who to field for D6 this week?
TU: Worrell v Melb
TD: Wilmot v Geelong
Trading in Ryan this week. Who do I trade out for him? My options are
Who to trade to make final upgrade? The other will stay as cover for the rest of the year. DPP is irrelevant as can swing other players between the lines.
T/U: P. Cripps
T/D: T. Miller
Comment: A. Brayshaw, C. Serong, Z. Butters
4 trades, $400.6k itb.
Def: Daicos, Stewart, Sinclair, Ridley, Lloyd, S.Mitchell (Melican, Constable)
Mid: Petracca, Bont, Zerrett, Dawson, Serong, Green, Steele, Mills (Cunningham, Roberts, Drury)
Rucks: English, RoMo (Madden)
Fwd: Dunkley, Gulden, Rozee, Taranto, Cogs, D.Cam (Maric, Harvey)
With 4 trades left and bench cover considering holding Green. My dilemma is final Def position.
TU: If Mitchell is not managed again play him a week or 2 more then turn Melican into Sicily once he bottoms out.
TD: Swing Dawson back and through the powers of dpp turn Melican into a premo mid.
And suggestions welcome. Thanks coaches!
T.U Trade Salem for Touk/ josh Kelly and loophole rioli and Sheezal 1 trade left
T.D save the trade and hold Salem and loophole him with rioli
Who to trade out for merrett this week?
Angus Sheldrick. “He’s had a pretty severe syndesmosis injury & had an operation on Friday. He’ll be out for a number of weeks. It’s probably touch and go (if it’s season over). We’ll see what happens.” John Longmire
Hold Ziebell or straight swap for Flanders? Will leave me with $0 and 0 trades haha
Any news on Darcy Cameron after missing?
OK just read ‘Injuries Rd 19’thanks and soz!
I am glad that you found my article useful.
You can also catch up with all the latest news in the Coaches Box. Updated often.
All the best for the rest of the season
S Mitchell to S Flanders?
tu- trade green to libba
td- hold green with Chesser to cover and hold the trade till Cunningham has made his money
2 Trades left
Worthwhile going Wardlaw to Soldo?
Must win clash in my league so willing to trade Laird to..
Tom green to…
T/u – Jelly – no green so more points exposure
T/d – Touk – strong finish expected
Cincotta > Hewett
Would mean no cover down back but have Dewar so could swing Sheezel back if needed and Maric would be cover up forward. Hewett would be cover for Laird this week. 3 trades left before this one.
TU Yes worth a trade
TD No not worth it hold Cincotta for Mid/Def cover
This is sad.
TU: cop a donut
TD: use last trade to go Wardlaw > Hewett
Hi everyone, current team before any trades. 3 left $16k ITB. NEED HELP!!
Def: Naicos Sic Stewart Dawson Sinclair Day ( Constable Dewar)
Mid: Bont Zerett Neale Tracc Laird Libba Bray Mills (Davey Cincotta Harvey)
Fwd: Dunks Gulden Rozee Taranto Cogs Sheezel (Maric Harrison)
Thinking of doing Cincotta > Hewett. Would become my M9 and cover Laird this week but would not have any defensive cover.
TU: Yes do Cincotta > George Hewett
TD: Dont do it
Must win should I trade Laird to Petracca
TD: no cop a donut
