Rick Grimes

Who benefits most no Danger: Guthrie, Duncan or Menagola?

holty01

I’d say Menegola. Can’t see too much more improvement from the other 2.

JugHead

Agree. Plus more input from some fringe players. Will be interesting to see if Constable comes back in.
And watch Selwood stand up.
Naturally, Higgins is injured. Jock would be laughing his head off.

Derek

I’m hoping JClark

Rick Grimes

Am I wrong to consider Hunter Clark? Back to back tons. Had a great start and then two shockers. Looking for value options as cash generation looks tough this year.

JohnDJ59

I’m happy with him as my D4 and think/hope he will be a keeper Rick.

JohnDJ59

With L.Jones out for 4 weeks I will have to change my trading plans.

Derek

I was going to miss him anyway. Fairly confident Highmore and Kosi play this week to cover Ridley plus cash generation should be good from them.

If JClark doesn’t play I might look at trading him, but no other must-have rookies this week.

I have enough cash to trade JClark to a $520k player. I think he will play though

Rick Grimes

I expect he plays and tons up!

demonsdelight

farrar might be a look

Shake n bake

I’m hearing Highmore won’t play

Rick Grimes

Yowsers, hope no one went a week early on him. Hard to see any rookies worth buying this week.

TRIGGA HAPPY

For those following along at home update Rd 5 on the “firesale” team
Had to deal with more LTI’s (I think this poor old team has had at least one every week since Rd 1) so needed to replace Heeney and Butters.
First upgrade to premium so traded Butters up to Dunkley who I made capt this week. Tick.
In order to trade Butters up to Dunks I had to downgrade Heeney so went Heeney to Buddy. Tick. Then on Monday find out Buddy is out for an “extended” period of time – make that at cross.
With LDU rested I used Powell’s score off the bench.
Chewed on a donut in the ruck as Flynn and Martin were absent.
Other injuries on the weekend were Hickey and Cerra. Seriously? Just keeps happening, so that is 3 LTI’s I have to deal with in Rd 6.
Score 2131 with a zero in the ruck and a 15 from Cerra.
Overall score 10,412 which would place the team around 25,000 for the year.
Considering the injuries that is not too bad.
Scored better than my actual team and that was with donut!
Team is below:
Def: Moore, Doch, Lukosius, rich, h clark, jiath. (Highmore, Sharp)
Mid: Tarranto, serong, simpkin, mcgrath, LDU, Cerra, JOM, Smith (Powell, Gulden, Jordon)
Ruck: Hickey, Flynn. (Martin)
Fwd: Dunkley, Buddy, Tex, Hind, Ziebell, Impey. (Rowe, Campbell)

Look at that fwd line, who would have thought at the start of the year that bunch of misfits would form the majority of top scorers after rd 5?
Shout out to hind and JOM. Both been outstanding this year, esp JOM who is putting up some great scores of late.
Thinking this week move Hickey to bench and play the other two in the ruck. Might look at an upgrade next week?
A rook probably Rowe will have to cover buddy.
Or who would you trade buddy to?
How long is Cerra out for?
Trades this week ? Campbell to Macrae and then Cerra to Neale? Either that or trade Jordon but think Jordon has a bit more $$ to make.
Will bring in Ridley in 3 weeks time for Moore once that 31 has reduced his price.
The experiment continues …..

JohnDJ59

Why go early on Macrae, look what happened to the teams that brought L.Jones in a week early. Keep Jordon for now, still has cash to make. I like your mid bench, they are my on field rookies.

Rick Grimes

Cerra 4 weeks at least I think. Trade

Tibor

Bont and Oliver both available under the 600 k. Can you get one of them?

Shake n bake

Will walker & Laird play 🤔

JohnDJ59

They said Laird was fine, not sure about Tex.

DEESNUTSRBIG

Laird said him and Tex are fine will play but Berry is out.

Shake n bake

Rantall to debut

dontblushbaby

Kennedy & Hurn didn’t make the plane , that gives Witherden another game.
If he plays well can he hold his place when Hurn returns will?

holty01

He may keep his spot but won’t score as well. No way he will be taking kickins when Hurn returns.

PeteB

YESSsss !!! Flynn is back which saves me a trade. Meek can sit on my bench a little longer !

Rick Grimes

You beauty! I can leave Hickey rotting at R3. Hopefully in a couple weeks they can become Grundy.

PeteB

Ok so I’ve got these next to useless rookies sitting on my bench. Brockman, Bruhn, Lazzaro. They’re not generating any cash and not likely to. One or two may come in handy for loopholes. What do I do with them ? Also have Braedon Campbell to move on.

Rick Grimes

Wait and see if Cambell plays. If he does, it’s GC, so he’s a chance to produce a few points. The others, not sure. Just nothing to trade to really. Possibly McCreery if named. Dunno his JS. Mansell from Tiges been ok, but can’t see him hanging around too long.

Derek

No point trading them to another dead weight. Wait until a good rookie comes along

if Downie plays soon he might get a decent run at it. Young Macrae next week

holty01

This waiting for Saturday night for Sunday teams to be dropped is tough. Mind you, first time it’s affected me this year. Highmore is the big question?

Rick Grimes

Surely plays. I’m 96.74% certain.

holty01

I’d be amazed if he doesn’t. Need to decide however to play him at D6 or swing Laird back just in case he doesn’t. Problem is, I need to decide before teams named

PeteB

I’m keeping him regardless. Surely he’s gonna come back at some point and looks like a good cash earner when he does.

Russty_

Webster’s listed as a “test”…must’ve been a minor groin issue if he could play this week.

PeteB

What’s the go on Finlay Macrae ? 41 last week versus a 56 and 58 from McCreery. I see he’s a DPP but what else makes him a better choice ?

TommyC99

His role is definitely much better. Got a good run in the guts and found the ball, just butchered it which should definitely improve. I want neale next week so need to bring them both in over the next 2 weeks but not as sold on Mccreery as i am macrae

holty01

Agreed

Russty_

Yeah Tommy probably just nerves and adrenaline…looks like a talent, actually looks like Jack when he was 17, the way the Pies are going maybe they should play all the rookies.

What Bear

Held Danger all this time agrrr. What to do? Dunkley or look for value like Dusty/Zorko. Do you think dunkley will eventually drop to mid $500k?

Billioux

Not unless he does a fetlock. and lets hope he does not.

Russty_

I’d get Dunkley before he gets to 650k
