Great video Jock! Love your work
One quick question, who should be traded, out out of Cox, Naitanui or Maric?


On form, I'd say Naitanui, but I feel as though he'll rip it up the second I (you) trade him out. Remember, this is a player capable of scoring 170+ on a very good day. Surely you have other worries?


I think you should keep them all.


If you had to pick one it would be maric


Nic Nat as it looks like he will be rested and could be out for some time with groin issues. If he play's he is hampered by that injury and won't score big and he is going to leak a truck load of coin. If you hold off on Nic Nat for a week or two and he play's he ain't going to be worth nothing

The Camm

No mention of the young lad Dangerfield??? What should do with him?


If you have less than six trades, hold him. Word is, worst case scenario is four weeks, the beginning of the SC finals.


It's a hard one.
I traded him because I also have Watson on my bench. I traded him for Swanny and really can't justify trading him unless its for a like for like super elite mid ( Swanny,Pendles,Barlow,Ablett).
They say he can't move his arm at present without pain.


Hey Rocksta – I'm in the same boat with both Danger and Watson in my team, and I can only afford to keep one. Are you hanging on to Watson? Reports suggest he may be back around the same time as Dangerfield, and trading Danger out frees up more cash for me to bring in Pendlebury


Hi Jock,

What should we do with Patrick Dangerfield? Do we hold or trade?

Reports say 1-4 weeks which isn't helpful at all. I have 9 trades at the moment so should I trade Dangerfield and for who? Already have Ablett, Pendles, Josh P Kennedy, Fyfe, S Mitchell, D Swan and T Mitchell.

Wanted to use the 9th trade on getting Stevie J in for Zorko but Stevie is suspended again.

Would love you thoughts on Danger.


Cash cow$$

Maybe upgrading to Barlow if u have cash


maybe delidio or cochin


wouldn't trade in Deledio this week he is about to get Crowlied!


Yes with that many trades I wouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger and get Danger out, especially as you already have Tommy Mitchell on the field so your bench cover is probably lacking.

Would look at the likes of Barlow or Selwood who would be fine additions to any coach's midfield brigade.


My backup this week will be Brad Crouch. Should I still trade?


With that many trades I would in your position. Of course it's all contingent on where you are placed in your leagues. If you are sitting comfortably in the top 4 in all your leagues you could potentially hold on to him and wait it out for at least a week or two and see where things stand then.

It's just he's a fair chunk of your scoring to lose especially if he does end up missing a whole month of footy.


I'm currently 1st in my league so I will wait it out for the first week and assess things next week.

Thanks for the advice.


Is Goodesy to Jack Grimes a good trade community?
Or is it a waste? I'll only have 4 trades left:(


Hold. If Goodes keeps on pumping out 90-110 scores, then he can stay in your team for as long as he likes. Very low B/E too!


A waste IMO


Good trade done the same stick with it


In the backline, who is a better option for the rest of the season?
H.Shaw or N.Malceski


As Jock loves to drill into the community, Shaw is a lock if you can get him in.


Yes Heater really is a must have defender so that would be my choice if I didn't have him already.



big fella

who should be traded out first from Zorko, Jacobs, or Staker? The last three problems in my team.


If you mean this week, then I'd get rid of Jacobs. The Brisbane boys have Melbourne, and Staker looks a decent F7/D7 keeper.

big fella

beautiful mate, in comes big jarryd roughead


Love your work jock! Is rioli worth looking at in a couple of weeks?


hay got bit of a problem who to name cap gaz swann or pendels and who to put in the team and leave on the bench priddis or delido got bit of a problem can anyone give me a hint


As sure as the sun will come up tomorrow Deledio will be tagged by Crowly and cant handle it, I think he will be licky to score 90 this week.

Ross Lyon has never lost to Richmond, 8 wins and 1 draw might be another sad day for Crouching!


Goodes to hanley? thoughts


Good idea if you have the trades and cash left


At this stage my team for this week is looking like:

Goddard, Hanley, Shaw, Gibbs, Goodes, Staker, (Thurlow, Clisby)
Ablett, Pendles, Swan, JPK, Lids, D.Martin, Mayes, TMitchell, (Danger, Jobe)
Goldy, Nicholls, (Blicavs, Moller)
Walker, Rocky, JJK, Buddy, Nic Nat, Rowe, (Stevie J, X.Richards)

Only have 3 trades left with $611400 in the chest, Playing last place this week so easy win.
Would love some opinions on what to do (if anything) as im stumped.


Not too much wrong really so it's probably best to conserve your trades Kony.

If you were going to make a move I would perhaps upgrade your D5 or D6 to HepD or consider replacing Jobe.

However since you have an easy kill this round and plenty in the kitty there is no harm in waiting another week to contemplate these possibilities and to get a better update on Jobe's likely return date.


What to do with Dangerfield?
My midfield currently is Ablett, Pendles, Swan, Dangerfield, Selwood, Swallow, Fyfe, JPK, Emg: T.Mitchell, K.Martin
7 trades left with 70k in the bank


Trade Danger and bring in Barlow, unless Martin is going to get a game again soon to offer cover on your bench


Would like some trade ideas for my team please (47K left, 8 trades):

goddard, heppel, gibbs, hartlett, duffield, mckenzie. SUBS terlich, clisby.

GAJ, Pendles, JPK, Barlow, cotchin, Mundy, Shuey, Titchell. SUBS danger, crouch

Jacobs, nicholls. SUBS rowe, currie.

Rockliff, JJK, buddy, Zorko, Nic Nat, Staker. SUBS Steve J, bennedy.

Was thinking terlich to dusty martin as my 1st trade and unsure about the 2nd trade.
Feedback is appreciated.


or downgrade terlich to a cheapie 96k non-player and upgrade nic nat?


Nic Nat may be out and might miss a few as the Eagles have been advised to rest him. Have you thought about trading Terlich and Nic Nat for Roughead and Sam Mayes moving Staker Back


ok sounds good bud!


I think Terlich to Dusty via Staker is a great idea.


ok cheers

Darby dashers

8 trades left playing soft team in my league this week. 8 trades left, thinking hold this week and bring Johnson in for the dangerman


Hi community, I have 6 trades left.

Should I trade Dangerfield out for Swan.

I have T.Mitchell on the field and Shuey, Horvat on the bench.



Pull the trigger, Swan won't let you down…..often


I'm trading out Nic Nat and Patty Dangerfield.

Who should I get for the two.

I was thinking of getting Andrew walker or dean cox for Nic Nat and Sammy Mitchell for dangerfield.

What do you think?


Not sure who else you have but how about Roughy for Nic Nat and JSelwood/Barlow/JPK for Danger. Not sold on SMitchell…not sure why though. Maybe it's his little legs.


I've got the same situation, have traded Danger to Pendlebury but not sure what to do with Nic Nat leaning towards Goldstein/Minson

Darby Dashers

Goldstein very a reliable opition


Although he said he's tired.

Darby Dashers

Traded danger for swan. Reckon swan will be on fire for rest of the season

Shannon G

Great form here Jock, thinking Danger must go! Has been a great ride by mighty danger mouse, but he won't come back in the same form.

Sent you guys a nice donation during the week, just want to make sure you guys got it.

Hey Community!

I currently have 74 k and 11 trades. If I downgrade terlich I should have 380k and 10 trades (1 this round). I currently have Goodes, Jacobs, Zorko, Staker and Dangerfield. I only have viney/hunter to cover danger. What are your thoughts on trades??
Thanks in advance!


Thinking of trading out Natanui (as I have Nicholls) to Mcbean to generate cash. Want to either upgrade Staker or Lee to Bartel to complete my forward, but not sure who. If I upgrade Lee, ill have barely any money left, but will good forward coverage with Staker having good job security, whereas if upgrade Staker, ill still have 200k left, but will have a fragile forward bench with Lee's unreliable job security. What should I do?
