Thinking of banking Pickett's 60 vs. Bennell...

Currently 1,285 incl. C from 11.

So would be 1,345 incl. C from 12.

"Premiums" to come... Laird, Smith, Neale, Crisp, Grundy, Yeo, Gawn, Petracca

Rookies to come if I took Pickett's 60... Simpson, Starcevich

Thoughts? :unsure:

Bank it I reckon mate, good chance Brissy flog the pants off the Dees today. Bennell is always a chance to break down too.

I would normally bank such a score as the potential gain doesn't quite stack up with the potential low. However, Hibberd against ADE and an improving Bennell are clouding my opinion. Maybe take a risk on Hibberd...?
Thanks! I was leaning that way. I am struggling this week so I am thinking that because not many people own Hibberd, coupled with playing against Adelaide, it's a good week to roll the dice on him.

Another round of gambling is upon us...
spoiler: it's a lose-lose situation either way with these rookies this season...!! :rolleyes::ROFLMAO:

Mids:
Need to play two of the following three on the field: Pickett, Budarick, Bennell
Currently have Pickett and Budarick on the field. Better to loop Bennell and Budarick?

Forwards:
Need to play two of the following three on the field: Close, Rankine, Aarts
Currently have Close and Rankine on the field. Better to loop Aarts and Close?

Tough choice in the mids there , don't know what I'd go for maybe flip a coin haha. I think I would go the same as you for the forwards for sure.

Gonna be an interesting week for rooks.

Defence: Looking at Ling on field which isn’t ideal, unless Hill gets up for it.

Mids: Got one spot to fill: Pickett, Bennell, Budarick, McHenry. Unless Bennell isn’t named I think I’ll go straight for Pickett.

Forward: 2 spots. Rankine, Georgiadas, Taylor, Close. Rankine will be one. Toss up between Georgiadas and Taylor for the second. Any pearls of wisdom?

Aarts with the E scoring 75 is a nice problem to have.
Who do I bench out of Rankine, Geo or Dev Smith?

And boy trading out Pickett over McInerny hurts more and more every week.

Messed up my defense e when I moved Rivers back when trading out Williamson last night.
Currently Rivers locked out e, Noble on field and Brander on bench.
Need at least one of them to be named to avoid a donut but if both are named who should I play?
