3 trades, only a little cash ($38k).

Lack of carnage means I have no forced moves... so options as I see it are:

a) Do nothing
b) Fiddle around and sideways some premiums to other premiums hoping for something better
c) Do some off-field moves (Jansen+Keays for Dahlhaus+Uber) to open up loopholes, VC loopholes, flexible M/F bench cover.

Going for maximum overall score at the moment (which should see league take care of itself).

Any advice? Do I need 3 trades going into last two rounds?

Good strong team, no need to trade.

You could try a sideways such as Gray to Bont, but sometimes those trades end up costing you points.

I'd probably hold and then look to use those 3 trades over the last 2 rounds to cover any injuries or look at bringing in players who you expect to score well.

I'm in a similar position, considering Wines to Hanners for 25k, will probably do it as I see it as a semi upgrade rather than a sideways trade.

I could.. but then it would probably be my only trade I make as I couldn't afford to go Birch -> Doc as well...

So effectively it becomes a case of which combination should yield the higher points?:
WINGARD & BIRCHALL
DAHL & DOCHERTY
LYNCH (GC) & BIRCHALL
Hold - but you may get what you are wishing for
Late out carnage :)

Hmm, I appreciate the counsel. Does it change anything if I mention I'm about 10 places out of $1k? I feel like I need to take a risk. EVERYONE has Pendles. EVERYONE has Merrett, Danger, Hanners, Doc, Shaw, Gawn, Goldy.

If carnage is coming the trades will be gold... but I'm not sure carnage is coming this year with the pre-finals bye.

I guess I'm thinking aloud whether I can find an edge with better loopholing or by being intentionally different (jumping on Cripps or Gibbs or something) to try to make up ground.

Otherwise I'm basically wheeling out Gray, Buddy, Sloane, JPK and hoping they outscore the other folks like Rockliff, Ward, Neale, Wells. It did happen in Rnd 19. It most decidedly did not happen in Rnd 20.

Thinking of trading Pendlebury to Bontempelli regardless of whether Pendlebury plays tonight.

If Grimley is named I only have Reuben Williams and Trengove as donuts and I want to use Trengove for emergency loopholing Kerridge, so need to use VC tonight. Bont will make a great VC!

Currently have Wingard at F6.
Have 4 trades left and about $40k.
Planning on Petracca to Dahl, and Silvagni to a 102k M/F.
This will allow me to loophole Wingard and Dahl.
Good idea? Or am I better off downgrading Cox and just upgrading Wingard?

Well yes that does change things a bit!

With only 38k in the bank though it makes things a bit tough and restricts what you can do.

JJ is a POD option in the defs who can make you a bit of coin (and has a soft finish), but hard to see who you would take out from your current 6.

In the mids the Bont is the one I would be aiming to get, playing like Fyfe at the moment. Gibbs and Cripps both worth a look as well with a soft finish. Again you would have to gamble on who you take out to get one of them in. Hinkley has thrown down the challenge to Robbie, so expect him to respond.

Tom Lynch (GC) is the forward I'd look at, but you would probably want to go Buddy to him and that costs over 80k.

If you're willing to use 2 trades, maybe go JPK to Cripps and Buddy to Tom Lynch.

Or a ballsy move could be Shaw to JJ.

It's risky. Greenwood will be riding his ass all night. Especially with no Wallis Libba or Macrae
Dumont went to Bont at the stoppages last week which kept him quiet at times, but the beauty of the Bont is that he takes big contested marks and often drifts forward, much like Fyfe.

Only 19 touches last week but got 133 points.

The 8 marks, 9 tackles and a goal certainly helped, but yes, he is in ripping form right now. 1st picked next year. Am slightly worried about the Greenwood tag though, he usually plays through it better than most, but I wouldn't be expecting a ton out of him this week, he may get it but it would be more a pleasant surprise than anything else.

Let him do it. We all made that assumption with Dangerfield last week, "oh, he plays Essendon, he'll get 50 and kick 6." Oh how wrong we were.
And how I laughed.....!!!!!
