Drop pickett/bennell. Even if they're back this week they were the first dropped and therefore the least likely to play further games (in the absence of any other information thats all we can logically guess).Basically all my rooks have negative breakeven, they all seem to be playing this week too (except maybe Pickett and Bennell)
I won't be able to make changes after teams on thursday, so If I want some blues/saints then I need to make a call
Whats everyones thoughts on
Pickett, Bennell, Vandemeer, Budarick, Mcinerny
Who would everyone field and who would everyone drop
Noone is really cashed up yet as well as all being in negative breakeven but I need to get rooks off the field sooner rather than later.
Thoughts on Jack Steele?
Had him since the startJack Steele anyone? 748k, averaging 110 in the old numbers, 3/4 carona hundreds
always scored well when played as a ball winner and Ratten has finally released the shackles with him. Ticks a lot of boxes. Finds the footy, tackles, marks and can kick goals. Honestly feel like he could be a top 8 mid this year
Fair point - Lloyd has bottomed out too. Macrae?Lachie Neale has two pretty tough games coming up, so you'd expect some lower scores. Brisbane have had a good run playing weaker teams in Qld the whole time. Much better off picking up players like Dangerfield or Whitfield that have bottomed out than paying stupid amounts of $$ for Neale.
What would I do with that team (decent team by the way!)I am hating the look of my team more and more each week and can't really find too many ways of improving it without culling rookies too early.
DEF: Doch, Crisp, Houston, Starcevich, Brander, Rivers (Butler, Hamill)
MID: Macrae, Oliver, Cogs, Yeo, Mitchell, Rowell, McInerney, Buderick (Bennell, Brown)
RUC: Grundy, Pitt (Xerri)
FWD: Whit, Petracca, Simpkin, Ceglar, Brayshaw, Bewley (Taylor, McAdam)
Am thinking about going:
Bewley > Corr
Brayshaw > Parfitt
Brown > Serong
Unsure how much better that makes my team other than making some extra $$$ instead of my mid pricers stinking it up....
Other option is to throw this week and try and triple downgrade to bank some $$$ for next week
What would I do with that team (decent team by the way!)
Brayshaw > Serong (via Buderick and play Taylor)
Brown/Pickett > Green
Houston/Crisp > Ridley
With those 3 trades you have not lost any points scoring ability but given yourself about $500k to do a double upgrade next week
No way at all, ever, would I bring in Sicdog!!
No midfield emergency there. Bit risky.Currently looking at the following team. Is it bad that I still have 8 rookies fielded... (7 techincally, Rowell plays like a 200 gamer)
Trades this week at this moment looking like this:
Noble -> Hayden Young
Greenwood -> Dangerfield
Darcy Cameron -> Poholke

You'd have to think Sidey is gone for at least 1Tyler Brown likely to be dropped also this week if Treloar is back, unless Sidebottom gets suspended for Covid breach. If not, that means my rookies on bench could have Pickett, Bennell, Tyler Brown and potentially McAsey all not playing FML.
The risk with Parfitt is he has a poor injury record. And with Geelongs decent mid depth there's always the chance he could get thrown forward as he's a great forward. High risk high reward typeIve gone off trading Merrett to Gaff, because Gaffs history against Sydney isnt great. Saving some $$ and looking at eithet Parfitt or Wingard. But now im worried about Parfitts late out a couplf of weeks back, and Wingard spending a whole game forward :/
|1st Half Pts||2nd Half Pts|
Yeah not bad. Only concern is if acres comes in for Fyfe this week, will that role go to him or Serong?Looking at the Freo game data:
1st Half Pts 2nd Half Pts Fyfe 30 6 (injured Serong 12 48
Seems like Serong took over Fyfes role in the 2nd half. Something to consider given Fyfe's return in 1-2 weeks.
