    Re: Round 7 Trades

    Not the worst result if he doesnt play. If you have a link in Garlett or Higgins, you can use Petracca to get a free look at Holman as well as Guelfi/Esava/Henry.

    Also, interesting quote from Scott on Danger.

    Scott also said Ablett's star midfield teammates, Patrick Dangerfield and skipper Joel Selwood, have been playing under some duress.
    "Pat, I think it's reasonably well-known that he had an interrupted pre-season with a back issue. He's not at his best at the moment," Scott said.
    "I think it's a little bit of lack of preparation and we knew that going in. He got a decent corked calf one week, he's clearly good enough to be out there.
    "Joel's been sore as well, I don't mind saying it. I'm happier saying it now with Joel because he's probably through it."
    Wonder how much the back issue is still affecting him, those are never quick fixes and it could hamper him all year. If he continues to struggle, might be worth finishing your midfield without him, and if he gets back to top form just trade your worst premo to him.

    Spot on

    Petracca out would allow me to loop Titch into Gawn. Otherwise, with GWS (Keeffe) playing Fri night this week, I have no VC/C loophole opportunities. Would probably just back Titch in this week anyway.

    Danger has had back issues since his Adelaide days. I remember articles about him having fractures in his back or something. It was something that he was going to have to manage his whole career and he's had it since he was pretty early into the Adelaide system.

    I'm not sure if it is the same thing or not. Since it would be at least 5 years since I remember the articles coming out.

    EDIT: I had a look through the early posts in the Dangerfield thread (2012-2015) and I basically write the same thing I did here in 2014 after he has scans on his back after a knock. Given the thread starts in 2012, I can't find the actual date when the initial articles happened but I'm confident that I didn't just imagine it.

    Re: Round 7 Trades

    Zac Langdon is considered a test this week. Good news is that the knee injury wasn't serious but given their position and depth, he would need to be 100% to play this week.

    Positive is that even if he misses this week, they brought him straight in before.

    The voice in the back of my head is trying to get me to pick Deledio when every rational thought I have tells me it's a bad move.

    Just turned 31 the other week so he is over the mark but not a huge amount, just hasn't managed to play more than 18 games since 2013 and i think a 90-95 avg (DT) is probably the realistic number to expect which shouldn't be that much better then other options with more durability and less job concerns.

    That said, he's still of good value with a breakeven of 3, last 3 avg of 113 and in very few teams - all makes the allure that much stronger, especially given it will only cost 30k for Petracca who is going at an 82 avg and someone that's only had 2 100+ scores in his career to date (none this year yet).

    He's a perfect AF candidate, all care, no responsibility. Trade when breaks.

    Was the major reason I wasn't starting him even before he had the hamstring, which tends to have a pretty common link with guys with back issues as well.

    Was pretty well documented and talked about in the preseason that he'd had a few issues with the back.

    Horse basically said they wont play him until they're confident it's right and that he'll be able to train fully so I reckon that 2 weeks seems the more realistic one.

    Petracca I'd almost rather misses again and gets it right than trying to play hurt and tanking, loophole has genuine value with only Fritsch basically being ruled out by it. Murphy is a decent backup loophole but really is captain and Naughton.

    Jetta confirmed out on the AFL website sure doesn't hurt Cole's JS or scoring potential either.

    Re: Round 7 Trades

    Kelly still listed as 1-2. Greene out indefinitely (looks 2-6+)

    Deledio ruled out for this weekend with hamstring tightness, was always a big injury risk to trade him in.

    Re: Round 7 Trades

    I should also add that I picked him up in my mates draft league this week where I'm basically poison (and somehow still winning). Kelly, Ablett, Zorko, Merrett, Kreuzer, Burgoyne, Hibberd, Tuohy, Parker, Bont, Daniher, Sicily, Buddy and Hall have all felt my wrath in some form so far. To be honest I'm surprised that O'Meara or Swallow haven't just spontaneously combusted. Could add that Witherden scores 70 when I play him and 100+ when I don't!

    Edit: Read the article and you can add Cameron to the above list as he's also out this week and in this team...
