19 for me too...although really 18 as i have Treacy!

Bringing in Bianco and Reeves early to fund future trades

This week is my light on week for premos though with just 11 thanks to grundy who i am holding. Most of my rookies are pretty solid though so hopefully can scrape through

Funds are there for whitfield and mitchell next week.
Round 13 and 14 i think i can get to 18 provided they don't move games and looking at 14 premos playing in each of those rounds with grundy held

Done some number crunching in this format today....cash gen is super tight but worked through a plan that gets me neale over titch. I think neale could explode in the back half so i want to be in a position to jump on.

The upshot is i will also bring in bailey dale this week. His role looks nice so hopefully he retains in for the rest of the year

Kelly is nice value but I'm not sure I trust him as an upgrade target, will be a tough decision.

Fairly tempted by Guthrie myself although I don't know how bad the shoulder injury was.
With Guthrie I'd avoid jumping on in Rd13. Just watch that first game back. Make sure that shoulder is completely fine and he can tackle and go hard at contests and Scott doesn't move him off the ball as he did in the 2nd half when he got injured. Also that Danger's return (should he play Rd13) doesn't curtail his scoring as it has done in the past. Not sure it will as I think Guthrie is now a genuine uber premo but there as still some risks with his selection too.

Jelly I've purposely avoided all season but after watching this past month and the Giants upcoming draw I almost feel my hand is forced. Wouldn't surprise me if he had a double ton game in him at some point over the next month. He often destroys struggling teams. Hopefully he stays fit and Cameron doesn't mess with his role again. :rolleyes:

Yep we'll all be on Neale watch this weekend. If he has a strong game back he will be hard to pass up in any format at his current price. I may very well turn Jordon into him in Rd14 to complete my MID but we'll see. :unsure:

I think I am happy to bank in that Guthrie has arrived given averaged 106 (after scaling) last season and 112 in the final 12 rounds of the season which he has since backed up.

Probably agree on waiting a week however he was named before a late out so feel he must on track to play after a week off and also trying to make upgrades as quick as possible at the moment to try make up some more ranks.

Yeah with GWS rolling he's certainly appealing, as is the discount so that will be the one I seriously consider next week. Also looking to reserve a spot for Neale and after that I am then looking to upgrade Heppell.

Hep has been awesome hasn't he. So glad I held him through those early missed games. If he has another big game this weekend I'm almost loath to upgrade him but he's the one earmarked for Kelly or another ultra premo - but we'll see what happens first.

Yeah love that he's been super consistent with his scoring too, was very fortunate that I had a lot issues early on I didn't get a chance to consider moving him when he missed.

Will be my last player upgraded at this stage but not far off but every bit of an upgrade counts!

A question to AFL RDT coaches of 2020 which I'm guessing is most of you. I had a hiatus last year and didn't participate. Just curious what happened with the trade situation. Was it a carbon copy of Supercoach and did RDT have the identical trading changes?

Just curious with all this talk yesterday of potential changes to trade allotments in SC if the Tiges Eagles game gets brought forward.

Yeah same thing, SC and RDT are run by the same mob.

1,492 with Doch and Macrae (C) to come which I think is alright, pretty happy given I only rolled with 18 this week.

I'm pretty screwed for the round 14 bye week though:

Def: Mills, Crisp, Lloyd plus Parks who can't get a gig.
Mids: Laird, Poulter, Bianco, Berry plus Brockman who can't get a gig.
Rucks: Gawn and Grundy
Fwds: Sidebottom, Martin, Heeney and Rowe


The way I see it is I have a donut locked in the backline, rucks and forward due to premiums which instantly brings me down to 19. I am then banking on Parks/Brockman to get a game or I am down to 17 and that's with the assumption that I trade out Berry and Rowe which is rather likely. The annoying thing is Poulter doesn't look trade worthy right now and neither does Bianco and at the price Parks and Brockman are at, I'm kind of screwed.

I thought they gave fewer trades in RDT but can't remember the exact details. I vaguely remember seeing an explanation that rdt was designed to be a more challenging game.

Just checked my history on the site and I used 4 trades after the break (5 in SC) and 31 overall (37 in SC). Doesn't mean for certain there were only 31 but I am not usually one to underuse trades.

EDIT I am working on assumption they won't give us extra in rdt but obviously just a guess.

Thanks guys I have no idea one way or another as I tapped out last year as I mentioned. I've checked a few of the Sportsdeck related twitter accounts and haven't seen any updates as of yet.

We'll find out in about another 8 hours once lockout is lifted I suppose. I was always going to to hold Grundy either way as I would rather use any potential extra trades to either fully finish my side (more to my liking) or hold them in reserve for injuries or late season opportunities.

RDT started with only 24 trades last year while SC was 30
