205 thoughts on “Trade Talk – Round 6”
Who isn’t on the trade table this week… Hayes, rachele, mccartin, butters dow… can I use a double trade boost and get 6!
Hayes to Hayes
Macdonald to Clarry
Greg Clark in for his first game this week. Good timing.
And, contrary to most rookies, I think we can go early on Clark.
He’ll start on low TOG but easily B22 for us, will get ample midfield time and been crushing the WAFL for ages.
With him, I’m narrowly able to execute the following moves:
Dixon -> S. Hayes
Rachele -> Clark
JHF -> Satan
Midifield will then be: Macrae, Steele, Neale, Satan, Brayshaw, Parish and Miller.
Lock and load!
I agree GD but reckon he’s worth holding off on purely so that he can be a downgrade option in two weeks. Might be worth picking up a Hobbs or Rosas if you can keep them on the bench but recognise that Clark is worth it for cash reasons.
With you Johnno….no point taking the risk unless you are looking at a donut…perfect one up one down shortly.
Will Brady Hough get another game?
Looking to offload Whitfield however don’t really wanna fork out 100k + to upgrade him to a top gun.
Anyone keen on Luke McDonald for north Melbourne? Suggestions appreciated!
Don’t love him, his role seems a bit everywhere and with ziebell coming down back possibly and hall nearly back from his hamstring not a lock to get that nice hb role. If you’re bringing him in now he’s gotta be a keeper and I don’t see him getting close to being good enough for d6 at end of the year.
Tom makes a great point.
Setting McDonald aside, Whitfield has to go. Giants have moved to a more direct, corridor style of play and are avoiding over-possession, not to mention there are now some solid users down back – Whitfield is done.
Obviously go up to any of the top tier DEFs but if you’re really tight for cash and want a straight swap, Vlaustin is a good shout at 460k.
What if the only option was to go down? Would you hold for another week and then upgrade him?
Keidean Coleman at the Lions just back from injury. Got 76. Best 22. Has F/D swing.
Mcartin out Parker in
Anyone think bringing in Coleman early works?
Wait for one more game of him, Zorko and Rich together. See how they look.
Costs just a bit too much for mine partway through the season. Being a Lions man, I’m obviously a big fan, but his scoring is unproven over a decent sample size.
Cheers GD. Hope you had a good round.
Ty, FBS, but nothing special on my end.
Congrats on the Pies win. High pressure, fast movement play style looking very strong.
DEF: Crisp, Hewett, Short, Ridley, O’Driscoll, McCartin (Gibcus, De Koning)
MID: Macrae, Laird, Neale, Oliver, Miller, Daicos, Martin, Rachele (Ward, Macdonald, Hobbs)
RUC: Gawn, Grundy (Hayes)
FWD: Dunkley, Brodie, Butters, Coniglio, Xerri, Rosas (Durdin, Parker)
$26.4/28 trades remaining
I’ll be definitely trading out Hayes (for Hayes from Port Adelaide)
But not sure who I’d should be looking to trade out as well? I’ve got Rachele, Ward, MacDonald and Durdin who’ve peaked. Then I’ve also got fallen premos such as Butters and Ridley who’ve been letting me down consistently. Also not sure of McCartin if he’ll play or not this week. If he’s out for only one week, I can always put Gibcus on field for him.
How about this:
OUT – Jack Hayes, Rachele, Ward or MacDonald
IN – Sam Hayes, Clark, Cripps
Leaves me with about $50k spare.
If anyone feels I should be doing something different, please tell me. I’m always happy to hear what others think.
McCartin won’t be playing this week as he has concussion and is now under concussion protocols.
He is automatically out for 10 days and has to pass indicators during this period before he can start contact training and resume playing.
He has stated that he feels good.
Already used 2 trade boosts
Tu; make 2 trades this week with Luke parker being the only upgrade (fwd)
Td; make 3 trades this week with Patrick Cripps being the only upgrade
Hayes > Hayes
Rachele > Clark
JHF > Mills
jack hayes>sam hayes
TU-should use trade boost to trade out ridley or JHF
TD-keep both of them
Probably not possible but can you do JHF out instead of Lipinski?
I brought in Preuss last week for Dixon (R3) so I’ll have to miss out on Hayes. Looking at doing this:
McCartin > G. Clark
J. Hayes > 130k rookie (thinking Rosas if he gets named)
JHF > Clarry.
Mids become Macrae, Steele, Neale, Miller, Clarry, Cripps, Martin, (one of Ward/Clark)
I’ve used 2 boosts already though so these trades will take me to 24 left for the season. On the plus, Clarry comes in for a reasonable price. Thoughts?
Love it, LG.
Basically doing the same thing.
Dees with a criminally good fixture.
Go for it.
I’m in a similar position, my motto is be aggressive with trades.
Yeah thanks GD! Hoping the rooks come through and we’re good to go. Cheers
Whitfield not looking good. If the only option to trade Whitfield was downwards this week what would we all do? (Lack of cash)
Tu; hold one more week and hope he scores
Td; downgrade him to a rookie and use the funds next week
best defender to get in this week??
can afford anyone. Currently have Sinclair, Hewett and Short as my only 3 premiums.
Feel like a lot of the top players are either overpriced or just not that good.
Any one of Doch, Stewart or Sicily would be great buys – each of them just gone below 100 once this season. Maybe take a look at your bye structure and who suits?
McCartin to Short
Ward to Petracca
Hayes to Hayes
I am going to have to wait till teams announced on Thursday night.
Will Rosa’s be named (like I need another forward)
Maybe Clarke of WCE will be selected (but can we pick him on debut).
No rookie is really screaming out to be picked.
Not Hobbs, not Curtis, maybe Dempsey but surely he goes when Danger returns.
Will be keeping McCartin and loopholing Gibcus.
Another ton from him would be lovely (especially as I will have him on field this time) !!
@ Shaggi (and others) – what about getting Windhager (St K) in this week?
Has had one price rise of $26K, but is still only $143,700.
Is a MID / FWD, has a BE of -11, scored really well in the seconds for the first couple of weeks of the year – and he has now scored 33 / 43 / then 51 on the weekend for the seniors from 64% TOG.
Is getting around 9 – 15 possessions per week playing up around the ball, and the Saints seem to be going pretty well with him in the side.
The potential downside is maybe the returning Billings, Zak Jones, Geary and Hunter Clark.
He looks a pretty good player though – so would think the Saints want to get some games into him.
As a saints fan, I feel as if he is first out when Zak Jones comes back, which will probably be either this week or next.
Is Callaghan worth getting in?
Team currently with 30 trades and 220k in the bench
Def: Sicily, Short, Ryan, Ridley, Mccartin, Gibcus (NOD, Uwland)
Mid: Macrae, Steele, Neale,Oliver, Hewett, Daicos, Martin, Dow (Ward, Mcdonald, hough)
Ruck: Gawn, Grundy (Preuss)
Fwd: Dunkley, Brodie, Butters, Coniglio, Rachele, Hayes (SDK, Rosas)
Am thinking a little crazy this week and trading Grundy, I know he just scored 129 but Preuss is performing like a premo and could get him at r2 and then bring in Hayes for r3 for supreme upgrades this week.
Out: Grundy , Hayes, Dow
In: Hayes, Miller and Cripps
While I dont like trading out premos I feel like this is a super ugrade on my team and would leave it looking like this
Def: Sicily, Short, Ryan, Ridley, NOD, Gibcus (Mccartin, Uwland)
Mid: Macrae, Steele, Neale, Oliver, Miller, Hewett, Cripps, Daicos (Ward, Mcdonald, Hough)
Ruck: Gawn, Preuss (Hayes)
Fwd: Dunkley, Brodie,Butters, Coniglio, Martin, Rachele (Rosas, SDK)
Leaving me with 85k and 27 trades left with a downgrade next week of Rachele to Clark and Mccartin to Dempsey leaving me with a big bank of cash for upgrades the week after.
Can someone pls talk me out of trading a set and forget or convince me this looks great. I dont know if this is crazy or not!
I’m considering Grundy out too, primarily for the vital cash gen of Hayes. Very interested to see what the community thinks!
I know i was planning to hold him but with Hayes and Preuss gonna make 200k each is too good to miss out on especially looks like theres no real good rookies coming through other than clark.
This just got easier lol
I reckon you aren’t crazy at all. I have slight regret for not bringing Preuss in so I’d have that option this week. Only thing I’d wonder is whether Miller is definitely the guy to bring in. Just hasn’t been scoring like a top kid since the first fortnight and there’s just a lot of good mids at that price point right now. Green for a little cheaper just seems to be plugging along plus Brayshaw and Keays look great this year but nothing wrong with sticking with Miller.
Well grundys injury makes this trade really respectable now. Saves me the heartache of deciding!
best player to get in any position for under 500k?
-risky but i am able to get dusty if there is no one else
JDG & Luke Parker present some nice value in the Fwds.
Vlaustin like-wise in the defence.
Vlastuin and Ladhams could be crazy good PODs. Luke Ryan and Tom Hawkins have good scoring history but my personal favourite in the price bracket who I’ve been loving in my draft team is Dylan Moore. Just had his worst score of the year at 88 which is pretty solid for a forward if that’s the worst they’ll give you.
Zac Bailey maybe?
Flies under the radar.
You should also consider Treloar or Parker.
I would go for a midfielder with DPP
I forgot to mention Treloar and Parker. Both are good, I’d lean Treloar out of the two.
best midfielder to bring in sub 603k
already have macrae, mills, neale, brayshaw, miller
Cripps? Averages like 130 without that injury affected game
or i can bring in doch or stewart in defense
Currently looking at this – Hayes to Preuss to cover for English being out for eh next few weeks and paddy mccartin to Rosas via DPP. May also end up trading out Rachele, but the only problem is there arent many good forward or mid rookies on the bubble.
Is rosas injured?
may end up looking at trading out hayes for preuss and rachele and mccartin for greg clark and via daicos DPP to down back trading for a good mid
Rosas calf complaint. Looks to be back this week according to Dew.
I’m going early on Clarke due to structure. Should have decent JS.
Reckon I’d look at bringing in the Port Hayes for saints Hayes. As someone who missed the Preuss train, it feels like it’s already left and bringing him in for nearly $100k more than we could have last week feels pretty bad.
Whos time has run out?
T/D c. mcdonald
out- hayes,JHF, [above]
in – hayes, cripps, clark
first boost 27 trades – pocket 35k
Already have Walsh so testing the waters on;
TU – Cripps (too exposed to Carlton? Or do they work like Macrae and Bont last year)
TD – Miller (confident he will bounce back, unlucky with the frees against)
Stripped for cash…
Tu; Whitfield > Vlaustin
Td; Whitfield > rookie (means save funds for next week)
Out: JHF / Rachelle / Jack Hayes
In: Satan Oliver / Greg Clarke / Sam Hayes
“Rookies” on field:
Gibcus/SDK loop via McCartin
Rowell, Daicos, N. Martin
l really want Steele in after bypassing him at start of season instead of Miller and having him last year but with Rowell and Berry at Mid 7 and mid 8 and trading in B Smith this week l feel l need to address my back line .
Hewett , Ryan , Ridley , Bowey , Daicos and Mccartin
Gibcus , Deconning
l feel Vlastuin playing in a supercoach friendly role could be a sneaky POD have previous avg around 90 but no Houli this season .
Vlastuin T / D
Vlaustin has the loose-interceptor role with a share of kick-ins.
Great role and a great pick!
Like a POD but a bit risky
Hayes > Hayes
Rachele > Rosas
Horne-Francis > Oliver
Yes grundy just scored 129 but I think I have to trade him this week preuss is scoring similar if not better and should stay that way
It allows me to go,
TU: Go for it
TD: Ur bonkers
Help me out please $51,200K bank .
J.Sinclair, G.Hewett,J.Lloyd,N.Daicos,N.O Driscoll, J.Gibcus (P.Mccartain, S De,koning)
Need to trade one of thee guys out for C Oliver:
T/U: JHF – scored 65 / average = 72.8 / $322,200 (up $115k) / versus Carlton at Marvel / BE = 83
T/\D: Rachele – scored 35 / average = 67 / $290,600 (up $105k) / versus GWS at Adelaide Oval / BE = 85
Is Will Brodie a top 6-8 fwd?
TU: Yes he’ll keep it up
TD: Nah he’ll fade
hey guys, got a big situation here
like everyone i have rookies that need to go, rachele, jhf, macdonald, durdin, ward
Doing hayes -> hayes
I can do rachele and jhf -> rosas (hope he plays) and clarry
But I feel like i should get rid of durdin or ward before jhf or rachele, if i swap out one of rachele or jhf for ward or durdin i can still get heeney or cripps
TU: jhf and rachele -> rosas and clarry
TD: jhf/rachele and durdin/ward -> rosas and cripps/heeney
Would love some thoughts on which rookies i should axe and which premos are best
Rosas has a calf….surely more than one week. Playing Sunday again…it created havoc this week.
Unsure what to do with JHF and Rachele. They both have great job security but are about to start losing money.
T/U Keep them for as long as possible and be prepared to lose a few $
T/D Trade them
Any reason there isn’t much love for Libba as a fwd? Got an avg of 100 atm, that’s got to be worth top 6-8 by the end of the season surely?
At the moment I’m considering:
J Hayes to S Hayes
Rachele to Libba/fwd under 550k
Yep. Really like it, Joe.
Dogs know they need him back at the coal face. Top 6 finish from here.
Only reason I’m not jumping on is I’ve already got 6 premos with that R13 bye.
What are people thinking about Parker as a FWD? Has averaged 99+ every year since 2014 and doesn’t miss many games. Cheap at 475k.
Seems like a great fallen premo… keen to hear from a swans supporter..
Papley back next week, he will on ball a lot more. Great value
Hayes Whitfield Rachele
Hayes Vlaustin Cripps
29 trades left after…let me hear it
Lock it in, Eddie.
Thoughts on this?
O’Driscoll > Vlastuin
Grundy > S.Hayes (field Witts/Preuss with Hayes bench)
N.Hayes > Brayshaw (via NOD)
Ruck combo makes me nervous but Vlaustin + Brayshaw look solid?
TU: Do it
TD: Massive dumbass
Will Parker be a top 6 fwd by year’s end? Thinking
Out Hayes Rachele
In Parker S.Hayes
Can’t quite do the same trade with Mccartin but surely with Rachele’s BE he’s gotta come out first.
Looking at doing exactly that
TU:- Bailey Dale
TD:- Nick Vlastuin
TU:- Callum Mills
TD:- Clayton Oliver
Both will be top 8, either choice is a good one
Will Vlastuin be a top defender?
Trades this week:
Hayes to Hayes
Whitfield to Stewart
Lohmann to Clark
T/U – Yes
T/D – No
TU Parker ave 97
TD Brodie ave 100
Looks to me that Freo’s resurgence and Brodie’s breakout might go hand in hand. Was Parkers 39 injury affected?
Parker’s 39 was injury affected, Papley back next week means Parker won’t be used as much up forward
Rachele —> Rosas
Caldwell —> Cripps
Grundy —> Hayes (Preuss R2)
Rachele —> Keays
$100k (to enable another upgrade next week)
Will be using McCartin and Hayes (STK) as loopholes for NOD (DEF) and SDK (FWD)
Did you watch Grundy on the weekend? He was dominant, back to contested marking around the ground, strong in the hit outs. You will want him and Gawn eventually, don’t waste a trade
Grundy was beaten by Draper for the first 3 quarters then had a 51-point Q4.
Trading Grundy to Hayes will save a trade the following week when I can straight swap Xerri –> Parish.
A lot of strategising to think about.
Decision made easier for you AJ, Grundy likely to be out for 10-12 weeks, suspected PCL
This didnt age well
Hayes/Hayes, then Rachelle for
They have the same bye.
Whats the go with Vlaustin? How did he score so much and what role is allowing that?
Also pls vote on this.
TU: Hayes to Hayes, Rachele to Cripps
TD: Hayes to Hayes, Berry to Clarry (Rachele>Clark next week)
Rachelle, Dow and Hayes have to go unfortunately
TU: Hayes, Clark, Oliver
TD: Hayes, Hobbs, Heeney or even a Libba/Parker
Going with the very standard Clarry and S. Hayes in this week. Torn between upgrading D. Stephens or Rachele to Clarry.
TU: J. Hayes & D. Stephens > S. Hayes, Clarry, 54k in bank
TD: J. Hayes & Rachele > S. Hayes, Clarry, 142k in bank
Was planning Witts to Sam Hayes, but impossible now. Grundy was a set and forget and he proved what a gun he is. Pruess already my R3 so I may have to miss out altogether.
Crisp, Short, Hewett, Bowey, Daicos, McCartin (Gibcus, De Koning)
Macrae, Steele, Neale, Miller, Cripps, Rowell, Berry, Martin (O’Driscoll, JHF, Rachele)
Grundy, Witts (Pruess)
Dunkley, Butters, Brodie, Coniglio, Xerri, Hayes (Dixon, MacDonald)
190K in the bank
Thinking Jack Hayes down to Rosas, wasn’t too impressed with Hobbs but maybe MacDonald down via DPP. Then maybe McCartin to Clarrie.
Bowey and Rowell were both downgrade options, glad I held them. Looking like JHF, Xerri and Berry could be gone before those two.
Any advice would be great
Are these ridiculous trades? I need Hayes (PA) for cash gen and already have
R1 Grundy R2Witts R3Preuss
Trade 1 Grundy to Hayes
Trade 2 Ridley to Oliver through swapping O’Dricoll back to to D6
Trade 3 Hayes (St.k) to Crippa through swapping nic Martin down to F6
Defence would be
Sinclair Hewett short whitfield daicos O’driscoll
mids would be
macrae steele neale oliver brayshaw miller cripps horne-francis
fwds would be
dunkley brodie butter cogs xerri Martin
Looking to be cash conservative for the byes.
Didn’t start butters. Will he be top 8 fwd?
TD-complete disaster avoid.
He might still end up a top 8 fwd but it seems like it’ll be in 130s and 50s. As a Butters owner he’s two up and down. Wish i didn’t have him. Not doing bad enough to trade and not doing well enough to love in my side either. Definitely wouldn’t be looking at bringing him in.
I think With Butter’s, he hasn’t be right since he got Powell peppered a few weeks ago, then got smashed in the ribs this week and the poor guy tried to hide in the forward pocket for most of the game. So barring getting flattened again I reckon he’ll come good in a week or two.
As we have to offload Hayes (Saints), would Dempsey be a good option or, would he be a one game wonder considering Danger will slot back in?
Who else would be a suitable downgrade – Clarke (WCE) is probably a bit too early, even though he will play this week from all accounts.
Sorry, forgot to mention – I cant have S Hayes, as Grundy, Witts & Preuss are my Rucks.
Hey Vin, Stuart Dew suggested that Rosas should be available to come back in this week so he’d be the top of the list if you don’t have him. Otherwise you could pay up a bit for a Callaghan or Hobbs who are both on the bubble this week with negative breakevens. I’m always wary of trading guys in before they play two games but if you’re going to go early on anyone, Clark is probably the pick cause he should slot right into the Eagles’ best 22.
Thanks Johnno, with Rosas I went early last week. So, it looks like it will have to be either clarke or Dempsey – Clark definitely has more of the JS for sure. Hobbs could be a good option as well – Cheers.
Would appreciate a quick point in the right direction please. Which of these lines do you think needs work 1st?
TU – DEF: Hewett, Sicily, Short, Bowey, O’Driscoll, McCartin (DeKoning, Looper)
TD – FWD: Dunkley, DeGoey, Brodie, Coniglio, Xerri, Martin (Rachele, Rosas)
And any suggestions?
Rachele out. McCartin goes fwd opening up def/fwd dpp. Upgrade down back.
Alternatively you could trade out McCartin as well (he is missing this week) and then you’ve definitely got enough funds for a premo defender.
Thanks RB, i shouldve said I have $260k in the bank, and planning R3 J Hayes to S Hayes to get another $134k. Will trade Rachele, move McCartin fwd, swing Crisp back to def, and bring in a premo mid.
Hmm, anyone else smell a Rozie breakout coming up?
If he’s named center again think I’ll roll the dice.
Will only be using players not on my field to get him in.
So I’m torn on whether to get rid of Grundy, I started Preuss on the bench this year and I think my best option is this –
Hayes > Cripps (via DPP)
Grundy > Hayes (Start Preuss)
Rachele > Clarry
Now I know trading Grundy sounds silly but I’m top 8k overall and I’ve got 32 trades still, I think I can afford to make this trade and get clarry + Cripps at discounted price without losing out in score with Preuss. Let me know what you guys think!
My ruck line is Witts, Marshall and Preuss (weirdly i’ve also got Xerri, Dixon, J Hayes, Comben in my fwds). At some point later in the season i want to reestablish my ruck/fwd link but that isn’t a priority atm.
I’m thinking S Hayes is a must have for cash gen. Marshall’s my most viable candidate to trade out. I’d obviously use the cash to upgrade elsewhere (defence needs some tlc).
TU – Trade Marshall to S Hayes (and Preuss becomes R2).
TD – Don’t trade out Marshall. Don’t bring in S Hayes.
Grundy has thrown a spanner in the works. New question coming up.
Richmonds Vlastuin has put together two good rounds, on the bubble this week worth a look????? or am I just dreaming.
Was thinking Hayes & Rachelle to Coleman and Vlastuin, if nothing else two POD
Currently made this trade, using my second boost of the season
Out – McCartin, Rachele, Hayes
In – Preuss, Rosas, G. Clark
This leaves me with 300k in the bank to trade Sam De Koning and Xerri to a premium next round, and some rookie on the bubble. This can be done to get me any player I want in whatever position through DPP.
T/U – Great trades
T/D – Keep the boost, Rachele still has cash gen left
My concern would be about trading in Clark before he’s even played a game. Surely you wait and see what he’s scoring like.
Grundy has now gone and injured himself, so I am now looking at something along the lines of Mccartin, Hayes, Grundy out and Pruess, Gawn and Clark
TU: Stewart and rosas
TD: Docherty and Dempsey
Grundy OUT for up to 10 to 12 weeks with a knee injury!!! Feels like all I’ve been doing this year is sideways trading injured premos. Frustrating!
I’ve got the cash to sideways Grundy to Gawn…
TU: Do it
TD: someone else (thinking ROB)
Downgrade Grundy to Hayes (Port) and use trade boost to upgrade Rachelle & J Hayes to a premo mid (Cripps, Touk or Brayshaw) and Parker as FWD.
Basically downgrading ruck position on field but upgrading 2 other positions.
TU: Do it
TD: Stick to sideways trading Grundy to Gawn.
Grundy > Preuss
Hayes > Hayes
Someone > Cripps
Boy oh boy.
Grundy (injured out for 12 weeks) to S.Hayes
Rachele to Brayshaw
$136,900 cash itb w/ 25 trades left for mid upgrades next week to Cripps/Miller/Boak
Grundy to S.Hayes
JHF to Sicily
Rachele to Cripps
$2,400 cash itb w/ 24 trades left
Will have Preuss as R2 and S.Hayes as E on bench
So there goes my initial plans (above) with Grundy out.
Grundy > S.Hayes (Preuss moves to R2)
J. Hayes > Oliver (Martin goes to F6).
Saves me a trade. Will hold McCartin and hope his just a 1 week. Have Gibcus/De Koning to cover at D6 for the time being.
Trades this week:
Grundy to Hayes
Whitfield to Stewart
Hayes to Parker
T/U – Yes
T/D – No
With grundy my two options are probably to trade to Gawn or moving xerri to ruck and a rookie to the forward get in Oliver.
Grundy gone 10-12,and I have witts and Pruess already..do I
Tu Grundy to Gawn and only use one trade
Td Grundy to Hayes and allows me to also go JHF to Oliver or any mid..and use trade boost to also go JHayes to Parker
Grundy > Hayes
English > Oliver
Rachelle > Mills
Preuss and Hayes R1 + R2 but projected score of 2433 lol
TU: Do it
TD: Don’t be stupid!
T/U – Taranto
T/D – Parker
Almost might need a new trade thread with the Grundy news throwing a lot of plans out the window
TU: Callum Mills
TD: Clayton Oliver
I was always doing 2 downgrades this week to Rosas and Hayes. Then one upgrade which was undecided on…
Grundy injury has just answered my question and damn it’s good to have Maxy back in my team.
Have felt naked without him all year..
Midfield consist of Macrae, Steele, Neale, Oliver, Cripps…
Who to bring in?
Comment for others…
Miller! I would say a must have by years end and only 578k. Although, I can understand picking one of the two you mentioned, they’ve been on fire thus far. I just like Miller’s history and the price his at.
Grundy to Hayes
Whitfield to Short
Hayes to Stewart
T/U – Yes
T/D – No
Grundy news has forced a lot of people back to the drawing board no doubt.
T/U: Gawn & Keays
T/D: Witts & Steele
R2 & R3 are Preuss & Sam Hayes. Also have English & Hugh Dixon in the forward line.
Triple trade time!
Grundy > Sam Hayes
J Hayes > Luke Parker
Rachele > Cripps
Leaves me $233.3k for an easy downgrade and upgrade next week in the backline. However this may be the best time to get Oliver with a BE of 75, so do I bring in Oliver instead of Cripps? Leaves me with $135k only and no clear DEF to get next week.
TU: Cripps and $233k
TD: Oliver and $135k
Did anybody other than me panic trade Rosas to Lohman 10 minutes before the GC game.
Now I’m sat with Grundy, Hayes, Dixon, McCartin, Lohman all injured.
And I thought last year was bad….
Been an absolute killer Nigel. Hopefully McCartin and Dixon are back next week or the week after so can hold them for a little.
Is it ok to bring in hayes at r2 for grundy as i dont have preuss
TU: Run with it
TD: No way
Wondering the same thing as I didn’t bring in Preuss last week
I have Grundy so might end up running Preuss/Hayes at R1 and R2 with Dixon/Xerri as R3/F6.
Upgrade the rucks through the byes. Take the good scoring cash cows with solid roles whichever position you can. These two seem reasonable enough to have as on field scorers.
anyone know if hough and dixon from the eagles are getting another run or injured?
Dixon injured for another 1-2 weeks
not sure about Hough
Hough played in the WAFL during the weekend.
Unknown about a game with Eagles?
They are still impacted with injuries and health and safety protocols.
Dixon will need another week.
Grundy will be the talk of the week now with him gone! Which is a better proposition – please help out:
T/U : Gawn, Cripps & Dempsey
T/D: English, Keays & Sam Hayes.
English is injured, supposed to be out for 1-2 weeks.
Check your bye structure. I wanted Oliver but Mills’s bye suits me better.
L. Jackson to:
Grundy is going to Hayes at this stage and I also have to get rid of Durdin and Dow
Durdin and dow to:
TU: Hobbs and Clarry with 170k in the bank
TD: Parker and Vlaustin with 5k in the bank
Parker and Vlaustin would suit my team better as that means my only rookies on field would be S.hayes, Daicos, O’driscoll, martin and Dixon/Rosas. The only thing holding me back tho is the roles of those two and how risky they are. Yes they’ll go up in price but are they keepers?
The Clarry trade means I have a 7 premium midfield with macrae, steele, neale, oliver brayshaw, miller and cripps with o’driscoll/hobbs at M8. This leaves my other lines a bit weaker with Daicos, Dekoning, martin and dixon/rosas on field as well as o’driscoll
So in conclusion it is two reasonably risky low premos or one proven premo but a rookie that will ride my bench and leave another rookie exposed on field
Lmk any thoughts pls sorry for the long message
If you can find the cash I think Houston looks the best around $500K.
Lowest score 83. Breakeven 61. Ave. 108.
I could find the cash there so what do u reckon
TU: Parker and Houston
TD: Clarry and Hobbs with 220k left
Darcy Parish in a moonboot and Grundy out for 10+ weeks.
My team is in disarray!
Best 2 premos for <$1.03m? Thinking cripps and Parker but can be any position.
Whos more of a priority to trade out
Who’s more of a priority to trade out
Hi everyone – Who to get rid of first?
Also who to have on field this week?
Can’t get Hayes as I have Witts, Preuss, Strnadica, maybe if Strnadica is dropped ill do the swap but otherwise I have to pass.
Thinking of some risky upgrades in Hayes, Mccartin > Vlastuin, Liberatore
Who’s more of a priority to get rid of…
T/U – Whitfield at D4
T/D – JHF at M7
Didn’t bring in preuss last week, thinking now to field Hayes at R2 as I don’t want to pay up for preuss now. Also allows me to get rid of Whitfield finally!
Grundy > Hayes
Whitfield > Cripps
Rachelle > Steele
Tu or Td
Not owning preuss is now a major POD, especially if he gets suspended (again) or gets injured (again). Praying for neither as I own him!
For the Grundy trade and with English out (Thanks Brooksey for the heads-up), Do I:
T/U: Gawn, Cripps & Dempsey (with Gawn, Witts & Preuss as Ruck)
T/D: Cripps, Keays & Sam Hayes (with Witts, Preuss & Sam Hayes as Ruck)
Would appreciate your thoughts,
Tu – Parker
Td- De Goey
Any goss on Parish ??? I’m hearing he’s out.
I heard possibly syndesmosis – If so, i’m ready to delete my team!
In a moon boot. Waiting for scan results.
Update expected tonight.
Darcy Parish cleared of a serious ankle injury. Rough chance to play rd 7.
Mids: Macrae, Steele, Neale, Cripps,
Cant go wrong with either mate if u want a POD go keays tho
What a nightmare
Who to get rid obviously Grundy then choices are Hayes Rachele Horne Francis Dixon Hinge McCartney
Grundy to Hayes (Port)
Tu Rachele to Oliver
TD Hayes to Oliver
Worried about Rachele losing money
Okay, so the Grundy surprise has obviously changed my trade plans too XD
TU: Grundy > Preuss
J. Hayes > S. Hayes
Rachele > Steele
TD: Grundy > Preuss
J. Hayes > S. Hayes
Durdin > Keays (moving Rachele to F6) or Heeney
An extension of the TU option with the third trade
TU: Rachele > Steele ($46k remaining
TD: Rachele > Cripps ($176k remaining, then the following round I’ll downgrade Ward to Clark – assuming he’ll be playing by then – and upgrade Durdin to a premo forward. Then I should hopefully not need to use trades for the next couple of weeks at least.)
Grundy 2 Hayes
Rachele 2 Rosas (if named)
JHF 2 Oliver
$360K ITB for double upgrade next round. Just when you think you’re getting your head around it they sucker punch you in the balls! Lol
Bigger priority to trade out?
Or neither emergency to trade out at this stage
TU: JHF to Petracca
TD: JHF to Touk Miller
TU: JHF to Petracca/Touk
TD: Rachelle to Libba
Haven’t seen Libba spoken about much but looks like a good forward option to me?
Grundy – Hayes
Mccartin – Oliver
Hayes – Rosas
287k banked may get Gawn next week but do have flexibility with Dixon/Xerri possibly something to look at the byes will get another weeks worth of data on Hayes
TU: Callum Mills
TD: Touk Miller
Grundy to Hayes
Rachele to Oliver
Boost Whitfield to Sicily
Grundy to Hayes
Rachele to Oliver
Hold the boost and Whitfield
More of a general question but something to consider.
What is more important?
TU getting the right rookie
TD getting premiums earlier
Hi guys, i’d love your opinion on which of these options is best! Thanks heaps
Grundy > Hayes
McCartin > Hewett
Rachelle > Cripps
McCartin > Hewett
Daicos > Oliver
Grundy to S.Hayes
JHF to Oliver
J.Hayes to Liberatore
Might add that Paul Curtis will have good JS for forward downgrade targets, but always a risk going one week early
Un-SuperCoach-related question – which AFL players get the most Intercept Possessions per game? Trying out the Half-Back position for junior footy, wondering who I should model my game off as a moderately tall, fast and fit Half-back, not the greatest kicking skills and physicality but good football IQ and awareness. Am not so interested in the forward I am defending! Just keen on winning the ball and having an impact, perhaps making a move into the Midfield at some point.
I’d say to McGovern
Yep, McGovern all the way.
Probably not a match for speed per se but Tom Doedee is an elite intercepter and a really intelligent defender without always just outmuscling opponents. But yeah, Hugh and GD are on the money with McGovern in that he defined what it means to be an intercepting defender.
Got Grundy, Witts, S.Hayes as rucks – do I go
TU: grundy to gawn
TD: grundy to preuss and use cash elsewhere
Other option is grundy to rosas via xerri dpp
Ridley to Pendlebury
Need Thoughts On This One:
Traded Out: Grundy,JHF,Hayes
Traded In: Sicily, Parker, Hayes
My reasoning is not seeing any rooks that i like to downgrade to atm. So trading grundy while pains me to do… Allows for me to get hayes in for cash gen & take weak onfield FWD & DEF rooks out for some premos.
Pruess will be r2
Yep. Sound reasoning, Sanka.
Fresh TT thread up, this one’s at 200 comments.
Feel free to re-post if your comment didn’t get match traction.
My current rucks are Grundy, Witts & Preuss (with Dixon, Xerri & J Hayes in FWD line). 2 options I’m considering –
OUT: Grundy, Whitfield & Rachele (benching J Hayes till next week – figuring he won’t be dropping in price).
TU : IN – Gawn, Oliver & rookie mid/fwd via DPP (Daicos will move to def as Whitfield replacement for now and premium defender to be traded in next week) so rucks will be Gawn, Witts & Preuss as R3
TD: IN – S Hayes, Oliver & premium defender this week (with Witts, Preuss & S Hayes as R3, with plan on trading in Gawn later when one of those is ready to cull)
Option 1 seems a waste running Preuss at R3. But this seems to be the perfect time to trade in Gawn – or can he wait? Still has BE of 129.
Tu: Rachele to Cripps
Td: Horne-Francis to Petracca
TU: Grundy to Hayes (Gawn & Preuss R1 & 2), McCartin to Green (O’Driscoll onfield at D6), save J Hayes trade for next week.
TD: Grundy to Hayes (Gawn & Preuss R1 & 2), McCartin to Green (O’Driscoll onfield at D6), use 3rd boost for J Hayes to G Clarke.
Leaves me with a very strong midfield but my D Line is shot.
Comment: Back to the drawing board.
