Plan was to trade out Green over the weekend, as missed being able to do it last week dealing with other carnage. But after Ridley’s injury, made the decision that I couldn’t deal with both going forward (trades are an issue) so will holding Green and with DPP, Wilmot can cover him. Ridley will need to go though. Had already traded in Sicily last week, so options at this stage will be either Houston, L Ryan or Doc, depending on price. Think Houston will cost too much, so who to trade in?
TU: L Ryan
TD : Doc
Comment on Houston if affordable.
Or Houston over Doc & L Ryan
TU : Yes for Houston
TD : No for one of the above
One trade and $114k left.
League focussed but also a top 1500 rank.
Have Ashcroft and G Hewett as m8 and m9.
TU: Upgrade Ashcroft now or,
TD: hold out as long as possible for league finals before using last trade?
can I have some more?
1 trade to go.. no cash
TU: I can go Walsh -> Butters
TD: Hold Walsh and just use Windhager as cover
Last mid spot:
TU – Parish
TD – Rozee
Note – Parish next 3 are vs Swans, Eagles, North at Marvel, and only leaves the state once to play GWS. Juicy run home.
3 Trades left. Ziebell to Hewett? Or nah?
My plan to wait a week and bring in Sicily after a price drop backfired how the hell did he pretty much make that breakeven!
S Walsh and J Fletcher to Petracca and G Hewett?
Will have two trades left after this.
Is Laird expected to return this week?
What do I do with Tom Mitchell! Is his future in the vest?
TD they’re just resting him and he’ll return to full capacity
There was an article in The Age yesterday which explored this and McRae confirmed they’re managing his minutes ahead of finals. It’s disappointing considering he was 105 avg before this and knocking on $600k. But his BE is 190 with a projected -$53k drop, and game time security is low noting they play Carlton, St Kilda and Essendon. Couple of straight swaps to consider like Mills.
Got 2 trades left so can afford to trade W. Ashcroft and hold one trade back for any carnage at the very end of the season.
Only got $514k total to play with so don’t think there are any certainties at this price.
T/U – Jelly
T/D – Touk Touk
Got 3 trades left, but have Titch.
TU: Use 2 and get Sicily or Petracca
TD: Use 1 and straight swap to Mills
Who to Trade Out?
2 trades left
TU: Walsh (hamstring)
TD: Titch (just a week’s rest?)
3 Trades Left. Looking to make final upgrade
TU: Use 1 trade to get Touk Miller (or mid under $520k)
TD: Use 2 trades to get Libba/Petracca
Have cover on every line for the run home
any info on touk in the second half yesterday? Started slow but was on 50 something at half time. Ended with 81.
I had him in a SGM to get 20 possies – was on the bench in the last qtr for 8mins+ for no apparent reason
Was very frustrating he ended on 19 & only 81sc
Was my only leg to fail.
Was going to trade him in this week but not so sure if his TOG is going to be managed like that.
Thanks JB you’ve done it again
Last injury trade – Ridley to:
TU: Darcy Moore
Comment: Jack Steele but Dawson goes back to mids and I lose my DEF/MID swing (Still have cover on all lines)
4 trades remaining. Playing for Leagues. Need to replace Walsh. Who is best option under $555k ?
comment Jelly or Mills
2 trades left
Johnson / Harvey / Chesser my mid bench cover through various DPP. Was pretty confident Johnson could maintain a 60 PPG but has been wavering of late.
Feels like a waste, but I am strongly considering:
TU – Johnson > Hewett
TD – Save the trade
Read this on Twitter. Follow@afl ratings.
Coach said Touk Miller has the flexibility to play muliple roles including half forward and wing while evaluating others playing inside mid. Also added that he is still working his way back from injury.
Copped Ridley, Walsh and Ashcroft on the weekend. 6 trades remaining. $135k
Out Walsh, Ridley
In Sicily and Butters
Out: Ridley, Ashcroft
In Doc and LDU
Keep Walsh, hes out for 2-3.
The other two done for the year.
Walsh, Tom Green, Fogarty > D Cameron, Flanders, Hewitt, Bank 190k for finals with 4 trades still left.
Ridley replacement (via some DPP rotations):
3 trades left, wish I’d held a couple more. Which is more important? (Thomas, Maric, Cincotta, Chesser the only cover)
TU: Briggs -> Jackson (R2)
TD: M Johnson -> Hewett (M9/10)
TD: Hold the Trades
Who for Capt this week?
ridley to sam taylor?
Does anyone know who Ridleys replacement might be? Any chance it could be rookie Montgomerie? Would really help my bench cover.
Sam Wiedeman perhaps
To replace Ridley and Ashcroft
TU Docherty and Parker
TD Sicily and Mills
2 Trades left Mills as my 23rd man do I trade Walsh to Jelly?
isn’t that why you have a 23rd man, to cover players at the end of the season.
how long is Walsh out for?
2 trades left, $25K ITB. Need to replace Ridley. Options are Redman/Lloyd/Taylor, or swing Dawson to DEF and bring in either Jelly/Treloar.
TU: one of Redman/Lloyd or Taylor
TD: Jelly or Treloar
1 trade left, 33 k ITB
Shamus Mitchell to baz smith full premo with Baz my 23rd premo, 4K itb. At 419k baz is very cheap and Mitchell very high BE
TU do it, will provide good cover in my mids/fwds
TD save the trade but will have no mid cover ( only have weddle done back, Robertson in mids and camaniti fwds).
Smith 399k, a steal
Ridley and walsh out thinking these two combos:
TU Sicily and Hewett
TD Steele and D Cameron
only 1 trade left, have Ashcroft as M9 (if Laird plays). Fogarty as cover. Not sure but thinking Ashcroft to Rozee (or anyone up to 584k), so can loop keays or mills and ride out the rest of year.
S.Mitchell and Maric def and fwd cover.
Can get Rozee this week but maybe not if he goes up any next week.
TU Trade Ashcroft
TD save trade
Worth getting Mcgrath as a d7 with ridley out?
Td: save the trade
1 trade left after this change
TU: Merrett or
Who to get this week ?
2 Trades left who to bring in
2 trades left and won’t be able to win the final league match even if I do trade this week, so thinking whether I should hold trades for league finals or not.
TU: Trade Green to Miller (leaving 1 trade for finals)
TD: Hold trades (2 trades left for finals)
anyone fear Marshall will be a late out?
DCam plays Friday night.
TU: DCam at R3 (E) & play Windhager at F6
TD: DCam at F6 (risk donut if Marshall out)
I’d wait to see if he completes Friday training – currently reports seem to be pointing to that he should be fine, is just being load managed through the week
If there’s no particular news that he might miss I’d go DCam at F6
Walsh out with Sheezel + Fogarty + Maric as my cover
2 trades left, nothing in cash to play with
TU: Risky go for gold and trade Walsh + Maric for Libba + nuffie (0 trades left)
TD: Play it safe and wait it out – this is what Sheezel cover is for
Note: Currently at best overall rank I’ve had ! main reason I’m considering the big push for Libba
Team link on my profile
T/U – 2 trades: S.Mitchell (Haw) and Matt Johnson out for Hewett and Jake Lloyd (leaves 2 trades left), or
T/D – 3 trades: S.Mitchell, M.Johnston and Wardlaw out for Liberatore(or Parish) Jack Bowes and a cheap $102K swing (leaves 1 trade for finals)
Hewett > Mills
TD: No mills is a keeper
A lot of people jumping on hewett, is it worth bringing him in as a final upgrade?
Tu – do it, take the risk
Td – steer clear, get someone else
3 trades left, safely in finals, chance of top 4 if I beat 3rd place this week, who already has Sicily. Got full premo.
TU: use 2 trades to get Sicily by losing an underperforming premo.
TD: save all trades for finals.
So if I do trade, who goes…?
TD: Laird if he misses this week
Sam Walsh>Josh Kelly
My last trade
TU: good trade
TD: bad trade
ashcroft and ziebell out for-
T/U bont and hewett
T/D butters and serong
Who for Capt?
TD: Big Maxy
Must win game in a cash league to make finals. 1 trade left.
T/U – Trade Walsh
T/D – Use Wagner as cover
2 trades left
Td Luke Parker
TU: L. Ryan
TD: T. Stewart
DEF – Daicos, Stewart, Dawson, Ryan, Sinclair, Lloyd (Banks, Constable)
MID – Merrett, Petracca, Laird, Serong, Green (OUT), Walsh (OUT), Macrae, Wagner (Johnson, Roberts, Drury)
RUC – Marshall, English (Madden)
FWD – Dunkley, Gulden, Rozee, Taranto, Coniglio, Sheezel (Maric, Buller)
$196k, 2 trades left
I need to use the last two trades on Johnson and either Green/Walsh. I’m versing a few sides that are decent teams and most of those games are win or bust in terms of making finals. So I’d rather use the trades now to get a better chance of making the finals, and then whatever happens in the finals will be what happens.
I’d rather make the finals and die trying than not make it all.
So what would be the best options to trade into make a full premo side by finals happen? Both player might not both be premos, but the second player coming in can be at least someone with potential to do so
At this point I’m thinking Flanders and one of Cripps/Docherty/Butters to come in for Johnson and Walsh/Green
Hey WW, it would be Flanders and Butters for me, and I think green is closer to return than Walsh so I would move Walsh.all the best.
2 trades left Jasper fletcher for mid bench cover.
TU: use 1 trade to bring in Hewitt for bench cover.
Don’t know if anyone can help with this, but can someone tell me approximately what score Neale and Merrett need to get this week to drop to ~585k?
Neale is currently $623k, his BE is 176, need him to drop by ~38k.
Merrett is currently $633k, his BE is 191, need him to drop by ~48k.
Players drop approximately $4500 for every 10 points below break even. Hope that makes a little easier to calculate all your players.
That makes Neale about 90 and 85 for Merrett. Close number but done in my head so not exact.
Neale needs to score under 110 to drop 38k
Merrett needs to score under 100 to drop 48k
You can check the projections yourself using tooserious.net
1 trade left
TU: Trade Walsh > Josh Kelly
TD: Hold Walsh cover with Maric
Who’s should I trade in for Walsh out of the following? Parish, Brayshaw, LDU, Butters, Rowell, Anderson
I like Parish, LDU good POD then Brayshaw or Butters IMO
Walsh to Parish or Sicily via DPP?
is it worth using my last trade to trade Seamus Mitchell to Docherty?
That would mean I could have Himmleberg as an emergency in the backline?
Keep my last trade for a long term injury and field Himmelberg for the rest of the year.
1 trade left & with Ridley out, leaves me with S Mitchell & Banks (off the bench) as D5 & D6.
Considering trading Ridley to Sic.
TU: Do it!
TD: Hold that final trade
Don’t see Ridley being back this year
