Gresham and probably one of Houston or Hewitt.

Sudden death finals. 2 trades left. Team just going.

The "obvious" seems to be to go to Zorko and Steele. Leaves me thin in the forward line though.

Is Zorko and Rozee the most ridiculous move in the history of ridiculous moves...?
With little trades left, trading in Zorko is a risk, as how confident are you that he won't be injured again?
Steele is a safer selection to score better than Rozee, but I don't mind Rozee as a trade in.
I would trade to make sure I have cover on the Benches for all lines, if no trades left.

Thanks. Changed tack slightly and went Hewett to Stewart and kept a trade. Fingers crossed for a big Stringer score vs North. (Or some sort of freak big Butler score that I can loop in via J Clarke for Stringer)

Getting a little nervous with all these trades to Stewart, makes me think of maybe moving Daicos to him as some cover to hold some ground. Daicos has had some ripping scores abd is no doubt a star but Stewart can consistently put those numbers up for the next 4 games. If I don't pull the trigger this week it can't happen this season. What to do, what to do

If it's your last trade then it really depends on the coverage you have on your bench. If you have someone like Coleman or Zorko or Brodie/Heeney as bench players then it might be alright to do it, if you've got nothing but rookies then it might not be wise considering a premium that goes down will be losing 50+ points potentially a week to a rookie that has to replace him for the rest of the year.

Yeah having a closer look and I think I'll leave it a week. There's some discussion about how many Hewitt might miss so atm i can cover him with Crisp and I've got options next week if it looks like he'll miss more, Dawson should drop enough for me to sideways him which apart from Stewart would be my prefered option.

The decision to make for trading this week….

last trade to use… do i

1. trade for Dawson ( BE 145)
2. Trade for himmelberg (BE 70)
3.hold and wait… ( could still go Dawson next week if Hewitt still injured)

dilemnas…only $44k in the bank so likely can’t get Himmelberg next week if I chose not to trade…

keen to hear your thoughts on what I should do….

Nothing concrete but I'd go Himmelberg, scores look a little more solid along the back straight!
Dawson carrying the extra load first season with Crows may just be starting to feel it?
No science in those comments just gut feel !

Thinking I may go Cogs to Himmelberg in next 5 mins. Picking him over a few others just for the def dpp which may give extra trading options in last 3 weeks when other players drop.

Any Carlton fans think that Carroll will get back into the senior team before years end?
Trying to determine if I cut him or MRioli (who will likely be the medi-sub and lose $) to bring in Culley (to cover for Coniglio).

Ok, need to make the Hewitt trade to stay in my matchups.

Either Saad or B Smith I'm thinking.

thoughts peeps?
