    So I can upgrade this week. Should I burn all my cash reserve and get rid of garlett to McLean. Or save some cash and use crowded to McLean. Or just go all out and move on Finlayson and bring in MacRae) crouch..

    I think McLean is a great pick at his price. I’d probably bring him in and then maybe look at a downgrade to Spargo to generate some cash

    Nank wasn't at a player sponsors dinner two nights ago "on doctors orders" so that would support the claims he's out this week

    Sicily - I think very good midfielders run deeper in number so you will get another chance to get one later ... but the forwards are not deep in quality and not having Sicily could burn you badly later (provided he pulls his head in and does not get suspended)

    Ranked 652 currently so no donut for me. Olango out in comes Crossley (if picked)!

    He could be quite handy for bye rounds also if he keeps spot. The big O has the same bye round as Gawn so not an option for me.

    In case anyone missed it, the AFL web-site listed the number of late outs each team has had so far this year. It's worth nremembering when organizing your bench so as to avoid a (potential) donut.
    8: Geelong
    3: Hawthorn
    2: Brisbane, Carlton, Collingwood, Essendon, Richmond, Sydney, WCE
    1: Adelaide, Fremantle, GWS, North, Port, StKilda, WB
    0: Gold Coast, Melbourne

    Buddy out again this week and no certainty for next week either. Buddy still sore so potentially might score poorly on return too. Glad I made the move on him and Greene 2 weeks ago - I was nervous about moving both but think I've been vindicated.

    OK Ive decided theres too much value around this week and Billings has to go. I can either bring Crouch into the mids via DPP leaving Kelly at M8, or for 70k just straight swap Billings to a bottomed out Hogan or Darling. Bringing in a forward shores up the line and leaves me with 1 rookie on field. If I get Crouch, I have to play 2 of ZGE, Spargo, Fritsch and Guelfi on field. He is great value this week and looks great in my mids.... but leaves me exposed up forward. Might sleep on it and go with my gut.

    ok I’m after some pretty specific advice here.
    Strategy during this section of the season is one down grade/one up grade. Any side swapping/correction trades should happen during the bye weeks.

    Last week I traded in McCrae. This weeks target was McLean, until the Nic Nat suspension.
    So I have 3 options noting I have 200K in the bank and 23 trades.

    1. Continue one down/one up and take the donut from Nic Nat. Downgrade to Spargo upgrade to McClean.

    2. Trade in cover for Nic Nat. Cameron (R3) to McInerney who is on the bubble. I use one trade for roughly 60 points and cover for the rest of the season. Use the second trade to either get McClean or Spargo.

    3. Trade Nic Nat to Grundy and downgrade to Spargo leaving the McClean upgrade til next week (although his price will go up 30K)
    Any help would be great.

    I'm similar - Banfield to Spargo. Bring Toby McLean in for Christensen or possibly Billings.

    I think I'll keep Billings until byes at least. Surely he can't can get any worse? Having said that, with the byes in mind, who would be better to trade (Christensen or Billings)? Both are going to score similar going forward. I just feel ripped off with Billings - lost so much cash...

    I would hold for 1 week. He should come back with a big chip on his shoulder...

    I think double down is okay if you can keep rookies off field. Otherwise I'd suggest downgrade onto bench and upgrade on field.

    Redden - not convinced
    Zorko - bargain price but maybe watch another week.
    McLean - I'm bringing him in this week so I expect he'll do an ACL.. :-\

    What about something a little left field - Nic Nat to Callum Sinclair and save a few bucks (95k). Use the extra cash to cover McLean increase. Sinclair has decent 3 and 5 rd ave (105 and 115 respectively). He's a Massive POD. If he's dropped/rested Cameron will likely be named...

    Then again - if you have the cash maybe Grundy is the go.

    FWIW I'm spudding it up at the moment so maybe my advice aint the best...

    Finlayson to MacRae if you can...no point having cash on the bench mate.

    Double upgrade to get Macrae & McLean in, Finlayson & Banfield out ($68k left after)

    Or
    Spargo in for Banfield
    Upgrade Holman for McLean/Macrae
    Or straight swap for Walters?

    Thanks

    I think I'm going to do the double down now that Barry is omitted. Barry and Banfield down to Spargo and Mutch (all bench players). Keep looking at next week and there's nothing there so without cash i have nothing next week. Few potentials for the following week though.

    So therefore the question is Mutch or Ronke?

    What are the thoughts of crouch vs mclean? I can go direct to either for jaegar.
    I am thinking mclean and next week get him in the fwd line and upgrade a mid then?
