I planned on trading Cripps to Laird this week. I know Laird is a must but I have a full premium midfield . My opponent has Laird against North this week so I know I have to trade someone out of my midfield for Laird, but who goes? I have Steele, Merrett, Petracca, Macrae, Neale, Miller and Cripps? I could even trade MacDonald to Laird but who would sit on the pine?Crippa gets a reprieve!
I'd go Hall with that lot but Heeney could be a nice boom or bust style pick.Ben "defensive forward" Keays and his 40s can get the * outta my team now.
Only thing is the replacements aren't remarkably appealing. If you had to pick one for two games: Jelly, Wines, Viney, Butters, Heeney or Hall?
Gawn IMO.Any suggestions..
1 trade left, can basically do anything I want the cash remaining.
Darcy to Gawn?
Short/Crisp to Dawson or any other defender?
What would be the preference out of those?
Anything you see?
Or just hold it incase of carnage and bank myself to make a granny with a trade up my sleeve

I dont mind the Wines pick.Think I've settled on Keays to Wines.
I just can't bring myself to trust Heeney or Hall, especially in big finals. Jelly's role is crap, and I'm $1k short of Marshall too Wines isn't ideal, but his last two weeks have been good, and he should score fairly well against the Essendon and Adelaide midfields, who tend to leak a lot of points.
It's sideways, but Keays as a defensive forward could easily turn in another 40-50 and ruin me.
Of course, he'll probably make a miraculous return to the midfield this week and drop 150 on North, but it's not a chance I'm willing to take.
Of those options Sicily.Option 1:
In Crisp and out one of these: Saad/Sicily/Himmelberg/Ryan
In Laird and out one of these: Steele/Merrett/Petracca/Macrae/Walsh
Crisp upgrade potentially 10-30 point gain. Laird upgrade potentially 0-40 point gain.
