    Hey Jock
    is it worth downgrading goodes to docherty if goodes is suspended for a couple of weeks?

    • Schaum says:

      probably not, seeing as Goodes should average 90+ and Docherty could be a vest target.

    • jockreynolds says:

      Not the craziest option in the world mate, Can see arguments both for culling Goodes (provided he gets rubbed out 3 wks) and also for Docherty. Plenty of cash to be made to upgrade to a solid premium

    • Mac says:

      Goodes has got great JS, a low breakeven and is averaging premium numbers. Still questions on Docherty's JS as well.

  2. BrianLakesEntrance says:

    Jock, not only is your advice worth its weight in gold, the podcast is consistently the biggest laugh of the week. Does anyone else agreeeeeeeeeeee?

  3. Sam says:

    Which forward should i upgrade to out of Bartel, Stevie J, Martin or A. Walker??

    Cheers

    • @MRB37 says:

      Stevie J is looking like my pick, I had him in my team pre injury, so I want him back in. Have to consider Zorko too, BE is 18 so you won't get him any cheaper.

  4. Schaum says:

    I've only got 24 trades left and am finally somewhat happy with my team. Does anyone reckon I go Blicavs down to Gawn?

    • Brandon says:

      I was was just playing with that trade myself, good cash generation and seems to be getting a lot of pill.

      Jock I’m looking to upgrade a FWD from either LeCras, Macaffer, Neade and Dwyer. Traded in Mayes last week which really paid off. 190K in the bank, any suggestions?

    • Gilly says:

      Thinking the same or perhaps Blivcas to Leuy. Will Depend on what happens during the week as I have Gibbs, Goodes and all the port defenders.

  5. Hamish says:

    If Goodes gets 3 or more weeks do u reckon its worth trading him to Ablett? (swing gibbs to DEF)

  6. @MRB37 says:

    Great stuff guys, awesome advice as always. Helping me put everything in perspective, I had another terrible round, ranked in the 9000's overall, but you've calmed me down fellas, I'm feeling good, feeling pumped, still plenty of time to go, we're gonna turn this thing around.

    Also Higgo, I am seriously jealous you have Back to the Future pyjamas. I also like the Goodes to Docherty idea. That may give me enough $ to next week upgrade someone like Koby Stevens to Jobe Watson or Trent Cotchin. I like that.

    I know the pain CrouchingOne, I was one of the few Taylor Walker owners, tears me to pieces to see him on the sidelines. You haven't experienced football until you've been there at Footy Park, down by the goals, seeing that magnificent mullet blow in the wind like a wind sock. His team mates line up for a goal, doing the 'ol grass in the air trying to gauge the wind, he'll yell at them "Look at the mullet, the mullet will guide you home". It's top notch stuff to see, hopefully he'll be back soon.

    I have a few options for Tex. Have enough cash to do a straight swap for Stevie J, Walker, Franklin, Zorko etc. Could take Rowe from my rucks and swap him into my forward line and then trade Walker for Max Gawn or Majak and generate some $. Or I could just downgrade Walker to Mayes for $ also.

    Also thinking of dumping Jacobs who has been very ordinary all year. He's part of the reason the Crows mids are down, last year he was giving them first use, tapping it down their throats. Not happening this year, which is one of the reasons your Dangerfields and Thompsons are struggling. I think I'll have more pressing issues elsewhere and he's been called out by Sando so hopefully he'll pick it up elsewhere

    • jeremey says:

      any suggestions on jacobs stuffed me over this week

      • @MRB37 says:

        Keep him for now, unless the rest of your side is sitting pretty. Chance McKernan will come in, who will give the Crows a genuine 2nd ruck (Jerka Jenkins isn't there yet). This will hopefully take a bit of the load off Jacobs. He managed to crack the ton in his first 3 games and he wasn't playing flash then either. Sando's giving him notice he needs to pick it up a bit, so I reckon i'll persist with him for a few more weeks and hope he can start turning it around.

  7. Robbo says:

    How long will Duffield be out or???

  8. Sulzeer says:

    Jock, thoughts on Jason Winderlich, move Callum Sinclair from fwd to ruck, Blicavs trade for Winderlich?

    • G unit says:

      thinking something along these lines also!

      • Sulzeer says:

        His price is right, hes a proven scorer when he plays, surprised he didnt get a mention in the podcast, a good sneaky one hopefully,

        • Morse says:

          What about old Gumby (Scott Gumbleton) which no one has spoken about. BE of only 4 this week and if he scores his projected score of 64 (which he should score more than that) he will rise $26K?

          I knw he is injury prone but is no one else seeing this opportunity for say Dwyer to Gumby?

  9. Jake says:

    jock, when is nathan bock due back? is he an option to be looking at if he returns soon as a fwd/def swing?

  10. footyinme says:

    what do you think of axing those crows hey like Jacobs and Danger had enough been patient and sick of those 2 bringing in Leuenberger and Watson while banking an extra 50k

    • Scott says:

      Yeah I’m getting sick of dangerfield also.. Going to trade him for Watson or Murphy. I am leaning towards Murphy as he is playing Melbourne nxt week and should get a big score

      • Spifflicator says:

        Waste of a trade IMO, he is still averaging 90+ and getting better. Right now you should be focused on turning over cows to move into premiums like Watson or Murphy.

        The sooner you have 8 premium mids the better, and wasting a trade to jump sideways is a silly move. Stick phat, and if you need encouragement, just look at Zorko this week!

        • Gillie4 says:

          GREAT TRADES! Your making cash and probly getting an extra 50 points! Unless you have injuries or suspensions then you need to focus on that!

  11. John says:

    2275 with a player scoring 0, another scoring 25 and gibbs and jacobs who underperformed

  12. footyinme says:

    cash in those cows next week!!!

  13. @TheDishD says:

    great pod cast gents, i have to listen to it at least twice to make sure i get all the info an wisdom!!

  14. jake says:

    what do i do with Jenkins?

    • James says:

      i traded him out along with Mitch Duncan and got Maxy Gawn and Gazza

    • Spifflicator says:

      He is now THE key forward with Tex out, not sure if thats a good thing for his output or not :{

      He will now get the best big defender each week, but he will be getting the ball sent in his direction alot.

      Really great question

  15. FrontPocket says:

    I think Crouching is onto something about trading up from Wines. Port have played 5 of the bottom 9 teams. That means they've yet to play 8 of the top 9 and 4 of the bottom 9. Port's draw: NMFC, RICH, CARL, GEEL, WB, Bye, GWS (again, already? It was only 10 rounds ago they last played), SYD, COLL, ESS, HAW, etc.

    He's strong, he's a gun, but he's young. Viney already needed a rest and he's as tough as grandma's lollies. Great call Crouch.

    • jockreynolds says:

      Gutsy call wasn't it mate. The more I think about it the more this looks less ridiculous

      • Genco says:

        I reqlly think youve got to give the guy a chance. He hasnt had a single low score. Trade him out if he has a low score. Viney is not the same. He is carrying a huge workload, carrying the melbourne team on his back in just his first season. Wines is playing in a team of players with appetite who are winning. Just dont jump off him too quick just because mr orient himself tells you to do it. I valie jocks words more as he is scoring better, and crouching was the one a few weeks back who told us to consider nick suban. Just give thhe bloke a chance.

  16. AJAX says:

    Any value in Neade to chris knights

  17. Michael says:

    Far too early to trade Wines, unless there are no other fat cows ready to be slaughtered, and if that's the case you're in trouble!

  18. Gillie says:

    My Score this week was 2337. im happy with that seems… Luke Brown scoring 23 which would of been fine on the bench but Pearce Hanley was suspended and would of played Melbourne! And also had Pittard out! And Gibbs subbed out. Also had Franklin up forward. Had Evans on instead of Mayes wrong choice there. Murphy is in good form but isn't scoring great.only averaging 101. But other than that…Haha good week. If everything goes well next week should get a really good score!

  19. Fabian says:

    Top stuff guys.

    Love this part of the SC season when you have to try and decide which rookies to cull first and which premiums to bring in!
    Current team structure onfield is :
    Def: 3Prem-3Rookies
    MID: 4 Prem-1Mid-3Rookies (Inc Goodes)
    Ruck: 1P-1M
    FWD: 3Prem-2Mid-1R

    I'd love to bring in stevie J this week but I'm content with my fwd line atm given the performance of Mayes,lecca, and JJK. Thinking of bringing in a premium defender, but unsure who. Tossing up between Shaw, who is a proven perform but I'm worried won't end the year averaging what he used to, or Dixon, who has been impressive, but unsure if he can keep it up.

    • Gillie says:

      Out of these Rookies who do I get rid of:
      Brown
      Stevenson
      Pittard
      Stevenson
      Heath
      O'Meara
      Wines
      Goodes
      Dwyer
      Blicavs
      Daw
      Rowe
      Neade
      Macaffer
      Last week I traded Viney for Mayes and K.Mitchell for Evans
      I have 144,00 in the bank
      And which rookies do I put in for them ??

  20. Adrian says:

    Hey Jock
    What do you think of trading out Tex for Winderlich who is on the bubble and looked good on ANZAC day
    thoughts

  21. Anandu says:

    Gibbs for goodes and Watson for mundy. Thoughts?

  22. Gillie says:

    • Sulzeer says:

      Have a lot of the same rookies, one player I want to get rid of but its not as important as others is Luke Brown, he is disappointing after a good start. Got rid of Blicavs, the suggestion to get rid of goodes seems a little… early or not at all an option, hes shown he can score 80+ week to week (yes 67 against Geelong!) but I'll stick fat with him through suspension then enjoy the high scores for the rest of the season, probably look at port defenders

    • Aaron says:

      I reckon Dwyer and Goodes. Dwyer has peaked and his job security is going to diminish once the big boys come back. Goodes is sounding like he'll be out for 3 weeks.

  23. Kade says:

    What should i do with kane lucas? I need to palm him off soon surely

  24. Matt says:

    Great podcast but I'd like some kind of guideline as to when to start culling these cows. Went too early on Brad Hill last week so am attempting to learn from this mistake and get some advice. Looking at doing a double cull this week to build that bank to spend through the bye rounds.

    What BE score or projected price rise is the lowest you should let a cash cow get to before culling? Example Dwyer BE of 36 and proj rd6 price of +13.6k do I leave him 1 more week a milk him dry or cut now?
    Thanks muchly

    • @MRB37 says:

      Depends Matt, there's no set rule, for me, you just gotta milk 'em when it's time. If you've got a use for the cash now, I wouldn't be holding onto him just for an extra 13K. If there's another rookie priced player who's about to play his 3rd game then you might want to consider that too as his 1st (and subsequent) price rise is likely going to be more than Dwyers 13K increase.

  25. Mat says:

    Hey jock! Fantastic stuff as usual!

    Cash is not the issue, but one of Heath, Pittard or Stevenson from port are out for Dixon.

    Who gets the chop??

    • James says:

      i would get rid of Campbell Heath Mat thats just me

      • Mat says:

        Even though Stevenson was named out of the side and only became a late inclusion when Pittard was sore?

        • Chris says:

          with Jackson Trengove out should bring stevenson back into the side you would think

          • Gillie4 says:

            I would wait until the team selections and who ever doesn't play trade him! If they all play trade Pittard seems to have a hip flexor injury!

  26. Deanbartel says:

    Blicavs to Gawn
    and either:
    Dwyer > Stevie J
    or
    Pittard or Campbell Heath > Heath Shaw.

    What do you guys think? Will still have 200k or so after the upgrade

    • Daniel says:

      Only the first time Stevie j has got over 100 this season also think about Charlie Dixon averaging 115 and has a breakeven of 23 he's gonna go up a lot

  27. Deanbartel says:

    Disregard first post i didnt mean to click submit…

    I am trading Blicavs to Gawn for cash generation and then going to choose out of the following…..

    JACOBS to STEVIE J, swing COX into ruck. Jacobs has really been screwing me up, he looks injured/unfit and i dont want to lose any more value on him before its too late…..$405k left after this trade which I can use to upgrade Neade to Watson next week

    or

    DWYER to STEVIE J and take my chances with leaving Jacobs in the ruck….$154k left if I choose this trade

    or

    Heath/Pittard/Goodes to HEATH SHAW. Approx $200k left

    Thoughts guys?

    • Deanbartel says:

      The main worry for me is Jacobs' BE. He is going to drop a good 20-30k even if he scores 100 this week….maybe 40k if he spews up another score below 80. Before I know it I could have a R1 worth 450 and be stuck with him all year. I'm already keeping faith in Dangerfield, but I just can't keep the faith with everyone!

      • Fabian says:

        I think you just have to try and hold tight with Jacobs. I have the same problem with mumford. Took a risk which i thought payed off lovely with his 120odd round 1. Been down hill from there!

        I think your better off trading in Shaw or stevie J, but as to who first, i guess it comes down to which line is in most need of a premium?

    • Aaron says:

      Jacobs to Stevie J sounds like the best of the bunch. However if Goodes is out for 3 I would be considering giving him the flick.

  28. Callum says:

    How does a Jacobs to O'hailpin trade sound? He's a bit injury prone

  29. @yvraith says:

    Well I didn't do too bad…. 2360, with Gibbs 65, S. Dwyer 38 & Hutchins 24 all included. (Thank you GAJ!)
    My team currently looks like this:
    Def – Goddard, Heppell, Hartlett, Hanley, Gibbs, Pittard, Terlich, Hutchins*

    Mids – Ablett, Watson, Swan, Wingard, Maloney, Wines, O'Mera, B. Goodes, Evans & Kommer

    Ruck – Maric, Leuenberger, Rower, Blicavs

    Fwds – Cox, J. Kennedy, Rockliff, Zorko, Lecras, Neade, Macaffer, Dwyer*

    After the Vest treatment for Hutchins it's time to move him on & Dwyer can go too.

    The decision is who to replace them with… (I have $215k in the bank)
    Option 1) Birchall & a 96.2K rookie (Fwd/Def).
    (This will set my backline up for the season, barring long term injury)

    Option 2) Josh Prudden or similar priced rookie & either N. Riewoldt or A. Walker.

    With long term plans to throw Goodes back, & upgrade Gibbs to a premium mid.
    Also thinking that I might make a move for Buddy in a couple of weeks time, as it looks like his price may drop a little more.

    Any thoughts on which option I should look at first.

  30. Raymond hill says:

    What do I do with roili jock

  31. SupercoachSlayer101 says:

    What do I do with Jacobs, Duffield, Dangerfield, Viney??

  32. Daniel says:

    Should I trade Sam Jacobs for Sam Mayes by switching cox to ruck and Stevenson for Charlie Dixon or any other players I should consider thanks

  33. harry says:

    what do i do with cyril jock?

  34. Eugene says:

    Question question, what to do with Priddis?
    His price is gonna plummet for the next 2 weeks with a BE of 186.
    Upgrade him now to a super premo like Swan/Watson and trade him back in after 2 rounds when he's cheap?
    Or just hold…

    • pdid says:

      yeah get him out and then get him back in again, so you waste 2 trades and still get stuck with an average player, solid logic!

      • Eugene says:

        So you're saying I should trade him out and never get him in again?

        • Zimmer says:

          I'd look at other areas of your team. He'll come good. You've got him there, stick with him.

          • Gillie4 says:

            I think upgrade him to Watson! He should tear it up against GWS. I wouldn't consider getting him back in tho!

  35. Sean says:

    I agree on cashing in these rookies but who on earth are the ones to trade in?? Not seeing many downgrade targets

  36. gghfhf says:

    hanley or birchall

    • SCaddict says:

      I'd go the Birch. Didn't like the look of Hanley icing his knee on the bench a week ago so I traded him out of my DT squad for the Birch.

      Plus the Lions' draw gets a whole lot harder now whilst the Hawks soon play GWS, GC and the Dees.

  37. Adam V says:

    Goodes to Laird
    Dwyer to Stevie J
    but it only leaves me with $6,500 left is that a good trade or should I just trade rookies in and save the cash?

  38. Jimbotraralgon says:

    Could kerridge’s js security improve with tex out?

    And what do we think of a dwyer to gray trade?

    • Marc says:

      Doubt it, he was brought in to replace Van Berlo as the tagging midfield player. I hope Sando manages to find a spot for him when VB comes bac thoughk. Most likely benificiaries of Tex being out would be one of Lewis Johnston and/or Shaun McKernan, however they are both irrelevant for SC purposes for mine.

      • phil says:

        Robbie gray will not go down in price. He is a proven scorer when fit and Port Adelaide have said he is ready for full playing time. And after scoring 73 pts last week in less than a half of football i can see him reaching his breakeven of 90.

    • Daniel says:

      Wait a week before u trade gray in as he'll probably go down

  39. SammyC says:

    Hey Jock i have a question for you mate?

    Should I trade gibbs for h.shaw? or save my trade

    • James says:

      dont take the risk with Shaw i no he scored 130 but he will drop in price so if u dont have goddard i would get goddard

      • Owen says:

        Too Serious tells me Shaw's BE is 80, so I would say the time to buy him would be about now. Is there enough points to go around at the pies for shaw to be good value – Swan, Pendles, Cloke, Sidey, and Beams and Ball to come back.

      • SammyC says:

        i have goddard mate all good

  40. EPR says:

    What do you guys think about these trades?

    Out: Blicavs, K, Stevens

    In: Gawn, Ablett

    After having a look at Ablett in SC gold $680k looks like the lowest he's gonna be all year, and Blicavs looks like the worst of my rookies and Gawny the pick of the bubble boys.

    • EPR says:

      Or does anyone think Viney is a better out option than Stevens?

      • @MRB37 says:

        Either/or mate. Getting Ablett in your side is a win no matter who you trade there. I reckon only question is trading Viney instead of Stevens will cost you $70K more. So if you have a use for that cash and don't need to start Stevens, then i'd trade Stevens. If you need Stevens on field and don't care as much about the cash, turf Viney.

        • EPR says:

          I've got plenty of cash for downgrades, i figure it's gonna depend on whether Viney is playing or if he is just being useless on my bench…

  41. LanceCalhoon says:

    Great podcast as usual gents.

    I would like to offer up my kids' enclosed trampoline as a venue for the inaugural Crouching-Reynolds cage fight showdown.

    I may also take the liberty of forging a title belt for the winner. Let's get this happening people!

  42. Adam V says:

    What do you guys think about Hibberd??

    • SCaddict says:

      I like him a lot. Snapped him up as a free agent in my draft league in the first few rounds and have been laughing ever since. However in regular SC don't reckon he's the best buy for $470K.

      For just a few dollars more you can get in HepD, Dixon or Shaw to name a few.

      • Adam V says:

        Ive got Heppel and Shaw you really reckon his a better choice than Dixon i just am not sure about players from GWS and GC can he score like than all year?

        • SCaddict says:

          Dixon has impressed me and looks like he's headed for a breakout season but there are certainly no guarantees in SC. He carved up my Swannies nicely in Rd 2.

          How about Hartlett, Goddard and Birchall then? I realise they are significantly more expensive but am much more confident they will finish a top 6 defender than Hibberd.

          But if you feel strongly about him he would certainly be a massive POD only owned by just 3.6% of all coaches and will probably have a big game against GWS this weekend.

    • Sunka says:

      Gun and consistent. I'll guess that he'll finish with an average 95-100, but maybe that's not enough. I reckon this season will show some big breakouts in the defense, so it would be nice to pick one of them up cheap if you have the guts!

  43. chandanrajdb says:

    Hello Community…..

    I am so happy this week…….reason scored really really well this weekend……I scored a massive (for me, being a 2nd year player) 2421 points…….which actually pushed my overall ranking to 4683 which is nearly a jump of 10,000 plus ranking (i was ranked at 14,600 odd before rd 5)……..i would like to thank Jock, Higgo, Crouching and all other JOCK REYNOLDS community members for helping me out…….A Special thanks to VINCE GAMBINO for his article "SUCKED IN"…..which actually helped me to do the best trade of this season (hopefully) to get in HARTLETT……..I was tossing up between Birchall and Hartlett……

    At the same time i am not telling that Birchall was bad choice or is bad compared to Hartlett……but picking Hartlett over Birchall was a smart move considering the price you were spending……i personally think…….and YES i will be getting Birchall in next three weeks time….who i think will drop in price a bit after his score of 78 or 80 on the weekend………which is good…….

    Thinking of getting in C DIXON this week…….i watched the match between GCS VS GWS on the weekend and also after listening to this weeks podcast (which was really good as always)……made up my mind in getting him this week……i had an eye on him since the rd 1…….should have jumped on him a lot earlier…..but not too worried…..I am going to get him this week…….

    OUT: Dwyer Swing Hartlett to MID and IN comes C Dixon…….

    So what do guys think……..

    Got to win my work place league game this week……PLAYING against my BOSS…..and we have a bet going on……so can't afford to lose at all……!!!!

    Any feed back much appreciated……………

    Thanks again community……..for helping out to ROOKIE players like me…….keep up the good work…….

    RAJ……

    • SCaddict says:

      Yes I saw your Titans in our JR Community League (753633) had a strong finish to the round to top score in our league so well done.

      You actually knocked off the No.1 so I have moved into top spot now at this early stage of proceedings so thanks for that one mate!

      Also good to see our league in the top 1 percentile (246 of 30,000 odd) so no easy games there.

      • chandanrajdb says:

        Hmmm……i didnt know that you are playing in that league mate…..is your team name "Morgan's Maestros"???……

        And what do you reckon of my trade this week mate?

        so many headaches in the back-line this week…….GIBBS OUT for this week ATM and dont know for how many weeks though???……got GOODES……need to see how long he will be suspended for……Pittard, & Brown…..not sure what to do with these guys???…….

        i actually won against a guy who helped in building my team this preseason…..happy at the same time thanking him for all his help….."JJFYZZ"…….

        Thanks for your reply above mate…….

        RAJ……..

        • SCaddict says:

          Yes that's me lads. It's hard to argue against bringing Dixon in Raj so looks like a good trade to me. He's playing like a man possessed!

          Yes we are all feeling the pinch in the back line. I've upgraded Goodesy to Watson this week to alleviate one of those PITAs.

          • chandanrajdb says:

              Keep Gibbs and either upgrade or downgrade Pittard or Brown

              Birchall over Hanley, maybe Shaw for the value option.

  44. Pete says:

    One trade for me this week:

    Whitfield out (playing an outside midfielder role to much and goes missing)

    and Watson in, looks a juicy price and playing GWS this week

  45. jojo says:

    Do we trade Dangerfield?!!?! getting tired of him costing me money. Shoud i downgrade or go sideways with him?

    • SCaddict says:

      Although many wouldn't agree I would move him on perhaps for someone moving northwards like a Zaka or another dipping elite like Jobe, JPK, Swan, Selwood or Lids who have better midfields around them.

      The Crows midfield are just getting torched right now and can't see that improving this weekend against the Hawks. So players like Danger, Thompson, Jacobs and Wright are all badly leaking cash atm.

  46. James says:

    Is culling Dwyer and picking up paparone a good pick to free up some cash.

    I have been considering shaun burgoyne in defence. thoughts?

  47. Schaum says:

    gonna keep Goodes. Averaging the highest out of all the rookies at 90. He will continue to average that and earn more money, and will maybe even be a POD after his two week ban.

  48. Schaum says:

    Only trades I'd consider this week are cashing in some of my rookies, out of Blicavs (b/e 44), Viney (b/e 36) or Dywer (b/e 45). Only problem is im not really sure who i would downgrade them to. Considering Blicavs to Gawn.

  49. Adam V says:

    What to do in defence Gibbs out for 1 maybe 2 and Goodes looks to be suspended for a few as well??

  50. Callum says:

    Hello,
    OK so I don’t quite understand the BE”s. Well I thought I knew, until now. On the weekend Luke Parker scored 124. His BE was 103, yet his price did not go up. I though that if a player scores a higher score than their BE, they rise in price. Also about a month ago, mick the mad posted an article about this, and when he showed the price change formula there was nothing about BE’s on it. So I really need some expert help on this one. I also read that a BE is calculated by dividing the price by 5. Where as I thought you had to do it the way mick the mad showed on his article.
    Cheers

    • jockreynolds says:

      Gday there Callum – the breakeven is a tricky one. It all depends on who scores the points on any given weekend so you should use the BE published as an indicator only.

      Here's an explanation by Walesy from Too Serious posted on Mick's breakeven post which helps to explain things:

      "After the salaries are adjusted as to your above formulas, everybody's salary is then adjusted to ensure that the total player payments are the same as the week before.
      If everyone got their average, this would be fine- however, because rookies have a tendency to score well above their salary and garner a price rise- they steal salary off everyone else.
      Net effect is- the BE/Salary predictions gained by the above formula will be higher than the actual results found. "

    • Handbagger says:

      I think Mick did show the breakeven formula in that article (otherwise I don't know where I got this from):
      Breakeven = (Current price / 5140 x 3) – (current game score) – (preceding game score)

  51. rexinator says:

    can anyone tell me what is going on with Duffield and why he did not play on the weekend, is he back in this week? thanks

    • SCaddict says:

      Sore calf. Should be back this weekend but definitely check the Thursday INS and OUTS before committing to any trades.

  52. Schaum says:

    How does Blicavs to Gawn and Dwyer to WInderlich sound?

  53. Robert says:

    Who should i get for mummy. comes to 483,500 Thoughts

    • SCaddict says:

      Still not too late to get on Leuey if you don't already have him.

      Otherwise I'd be looking at Roughy or Belly.

      I have my eye on Sauce Jacobs to bring in about Rd 8 for hopefully less than $450K. He's a better ruckman than he's shown in the first 5 rounds.

  54. CHRIS says:

    Is anyone else having trouble with D/T trade button on the website. Or is it just me.

  55. James says:

    Help me guys
    Which trade should i do
    gibbs-(premium)
    blicavs-gawn
    goodes-(rookie)
    Dwyer-winderlich
    Pittard-(downgrade)

  56. What do you think about Winderlich, Scott Gumbleton and Robbie Gray?

    • Callum says:

      Fyfe is out this week maybe next week to. And Goodes will miss 2 or maybe 3.

    • Callum says:

      Sorry mate didn’t realize I posted that replying to your comment. Regarding that I would stay away from gumbleton, Robbie gray could be a trade in target in a few weeks, and winderlich is a maybe, but he is also injury prone

    • jockreynolds says:

      Im tempted by all of them, especially Likka. However all a bit injury prone and asking for mid priced trouble I reckon mate

  57. spinnerau1 says:

    Evening all…__Let me tell you a little story of panic and lack of faith.__This week I panicked and instead of taking the advice of this forum I made a trade that cost me a win.__I traded Zorko out for Westhoff. The difference in points had I have left well enough alone? +98 points. Margin I lost by? 28.I t was purely a point chasing trade that back fired for meI want to trade him back to Zorko. I still have faith in him, but what with Goodes about to be hit with suspension (really want to keep him), Vlastuin not firing in his first game (no faith in him), and my cash cows Viney, Terlich, Evans, Crouch, Dwyer, Rowe, Macaffer and Neade (Also have O’Meara, want to keep him too) all about to hopefully peak, Who do I slaughter? 2 cash cows or 1 and Westhoff?__The only bright points were both my rucks (Bellchambers and Leuenberger) scored nice tons for me (Luey being brought in 2 weeks ago…on advice from many here!)…and despite my panic trade and loss I still scored a respectable 2234…my scores have improved week over week (1843 and 2217) due to Jock Reynolds posters!!____Lots to think about this week!!____“Out Pick, Out Play Out Score”__

    • Zimmer says:

      To trade out Westhoff a week after bringing him in, you'd just be doing the same thing you are lamenting doing last week. Learn the lesson. Don't panic.

      • Spinnerau1 says:

        Thanks Zimmer….Thats what I was thinking…Trade Hoff would be panicking again, My lesson (hopefully!!) have been learnt.

        Its only Tuesday so still a couple of days to contemplate!!

  58. @MRB37 says:

    All you Dangerfield owners should keep a keen eye on him this weekend. With Tex out there is a good chance he'll spend even more time down in the forward line. His two tons this year have been when he's kicked multiple goals. He's got the skill level to be a real nuisance down forward, and if he can kick 2-3 goals while still racking up 25 possies, i'll reckon he'll be gold… Of course on the flip side, it could kill his scores even more.

  59. Rocksta says:

    Community,

    Upgrade cash cow to Heath Shaw or Hamish Hartlett?

  60. Charlie says:

    Is bringing gaff and Dixon in to much of a risk? To do this I would have to get rid of goods and stevenson??

  61. Rocksta says:

    Jock,
    I know PA have played some easy teams , but they have also won the derby and beat West Coast with a massive come from behind.
    Hamish Hartlett is only 22 years old ( on the up), is basically a bonified midfielder this year under Hinkley, and is getting 26-28 possies on average, apart from the one game when he played with a back injury. He has averaged around 22-23 possies in the past, and has only scored so well due to his immaculate kicking disposal and goal kicking tendencies.
    i reckon he will finish the year at around $550K, and more importantly, in the top 3 defenders ( wouldn't have him as a mid).
    Thoughts?

  62. Wattup says:

    I have Goodes, Fyfe, Walker, Rioli, Glass, Priddis…. I'm in trouble

    • Zimmer says:

      Yep. Start with Walker and Rioli though. They're gone for the longest out of those guys.

    • Curtis says:

      hey cant beat mine goodes, gibbs, heppell, Staker (piked at start) and pittard all in my backline

  63. Person says:

    I am thinking of trading out Daniel Currie and am not sure who to trade in for him.
    Here are my options: Max Gawn, Majak Daw and Setanta O'hAilpin

    What do you think?
    Personally I think Majak Daw, but please tell me if you agree or you think otherwise.

    HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED

    • Rocksta says:

      You shouldn't be trading unless you can make some money out of it or upgrade ( after appreciation) to a premium.
      Thus, unless you dont have a playing 3rd emergency Ruck, do not trade.
      You can urilize Currie in most weeks for the Captain's loophole, and also, Majak has shown from the weekend that he will be hot and cold thereby potentially leaving the door open for Currie.

  64. Eugene says:

    I would really love to keep Goodes but I have:

    Gibbs/Goodes/Pittard/Stevenson/Duffield/Priddis/Fyfe/Crouch in my team at the moment so surely one of them has to go…

  65. Brad says:

    Gibbs and goodes out cos of suspension
    And pittard and colquhoun not player I don't think,
    Who do I bring in this week ???? I'm stuck

  66. Jarrod says:

    Thoughts on Gawn for Jacobs and upgrade Goodes to Ablett?

    • Rocksta says:

      No Good.

      Dawes is suppossely playing in the ressies this week and as such Gawn's life span will probably be 3 weeks max. I dont rate Dawes but as he was ther number 1 trade target they will have to play him. Gawn is a Good cash cow but too much of a step down from Jacobs. Goodes is 'good' enouigh to be your 6th defender and thus need to stick phat with him and sit him on the bench for 2 ( unless you cannot afford to due to league issues)

    • Gilly says:

      Gawns's job security might have improved with mitch clarke set to miss the next 6 weeks but I still wouldn't trade Jacobs for him.

  67. Pete says:

    Who would you bring in out of Hartlett, Dixon or Zorko?

  68. uditha says:

    kennedy (syd) or montagna??

  69. @MarkVassett says:

    I think i am finally happy with my team!

    DEF: B.Goddard, D.Heppell, B.Gibbs, P.Hanley, L.Stevenson, S.Docherty RES: B.Goodes, C.Heath
    MID: G.Ablett, S.Pendlebury, J.Kennedy, O.Wines, P.Dangerfield, J.O'meara, J.Neade, K.Stevens RES: B.Crouch, N.Kommer
    RUC: D.Cox, B.McEvoy RES: M.Blicavs, M.Daw
    FWD: A.Walker, J.Kennedy, T.Rockliff, D.Martin, D.Zorko, S.Mayes RES: S.Dwyer, B.Macaffer

    Trades this week were
    Pittard (OUT) Docherty (IN)
    Jenkins (OUT) Walker (IN)

    Thoughts?

    Do you think i should reverse my trades and do it a bit differently?

    • EPR says:

      Not saying this is better but another options is to bring in Heath Shaw, he has bottomed out at $484k and will finish in the top 5-8 defenders for the year, and a forward rookie or midpricer on the bubble depending on how much cash you have.

      Maybe a Marco Paparone or a Jason Winderlich if he keeps fit.

  70. Scott says:

    (Playing DT not SC)
    So stuck on what to do this week.. I have both Gibbs and Goodes in defence but I think I'm going to keep them both as I have Pittard, Stevenson and Terlich for backups.

    I also have Westhoff and his BE is +150 so he is most likely going to drop a lot. I like the thought of trading him out for Stevie J who seems to be on the up.

    I also like the thought of chopping off Vineys head, moving Goodes to the midfield bench and trading in Hartlett. Not sure who to choose from Hartlett and Burgoyne but Hartlett has a lower BE so leaning towards him.

    I also have Kennedy (swans) and Dangerfield who are breaking my balls at the moment and really wanted to get in either Watson or Murphy. Murphy is set to get a big score this week against Melbourne too.

    Also considering bringing in a rookie such as Laird or Paparone for some cash generation but I cant fit them all in!

    So far I'm leading towards:
    IN: S.Johnson & Hartlett
    OUT: Westhoff & Viney

    Any suggestions are appreciated greatly! Cheers!

    • Scott says:

      Moloney to Murphy could also be decent as moloney's BE is getting up to the 60s

    • Zimmer says:

      I guess if you've got 2 trades every week you could consider those trades.

      Wouldn't it be better to try to upgrade rather than sideways trade the likes of Westhoff and Johnson? Looks like you're chasing scores.

    • FrontPocket says:

      Trade out Goodes to make some quick cash, then trade him in again once he's back. Viney is back this week and I reckon he'll be a bit refreshed and ready to score big again, so I think he's still going to go up in value over the next few weeks – once that damn 9 comes out of his score he should shoot up as long as he holds out three weeks in a row.

      Get Westhoff out this week or next. However my opinion is biased. Stevie J is a decent option, but there might be better value around; Zorko, if you don't have him.

      Keep the faith with Danger and Kennedy. If you get rid of them now, you'll have bought high and sold low.

      (and get onto SC!)

      • Scott says:

        yeah i think i will get rid of goodes for now.. not sure on whether to get hartlett or burgoyne? i had a look at the hawks games coming up and they seem a bit easier then ports so not sure..

        yeah i need to stay calm with danger n kennedy.. they will come through! (i hope lol)

        and ill get onto SC nxt year haha

        cheers for ur help

  71. The Captain says:

    Fellas need advice to bolster the mid or backline…

    Have cash to do the following:

    Dwyer > Paprone (to free up cash)

    Stevenson > Hartlett or Birchell

    Or

    Wines > Watson or Cotchin

    • Birch's Buddy says:

      Stev to Hartlett. He has a B/E of 30-something and should rocket to Birch's price. It's now, or wait over a month for him to come down again.

  72. stales says:

    Looking to trade Blicavs this week.
    Which is the better option from Daw or Gawn?

  73. ABC says:

    What's everyone doing with rookies that have stagnated at around 200k (Blicavs and Brown) but have decent js?

    Do we just keep them for a bench spot or downgrade?

  74. D Man says:

    What to do with Duffield?

    Thumbs up Keep
    Thumbs Down Trade (possibly to Brichall)

  75. ollie says:

    Shoul i trade Stevenson/pittard for Docherty and then upgrade moloney to Ablett. I know moloney might go up but i think that now is a good time to cash him in whilst ablett is cheap.

  76. Godons says:

    Traded Pittard for Docherty, then traded Jack Steven for Jobe, or should i trade Jacobs instead of Steven?

  77. Jono says:

    In my backline I have Gibbs, Duffield, Goodes, Stevenson, and Pittard. Anywhere from 2 to 5 of these blokes could be out this week. I desperately want to get Jobe Watson in this week, but if I do I will probably have to cop a doughnut in the defense.
    WHAT DO I DO?! (I think Higgo will have this same problem this week?)

    • Eugene says:

      I have the exact same problem as you lolz!
      Gibbs and Goodes are quite certain to miss and I think Pittard has a fair chance of missing as well.
      Really wanted to get Jobe in but need to cover for my doughnuts first.

      • Jono says:

        What trades are you looking at. I think who ever doesn't play will go for Docherty, but what about the other trade. I will have to make 2 I reckon. Is Duffield any chance of playing? Also who is the best buy in option at the back? Birchall, Hartlett, Shaw??

        • Eugene says:

          Pittard looks most likely to miss so I might cull him first. Not for Doc though coz of his JS under Voss.
          I sure hope Duff plays if not I am short by one defender!
          I think Birch will fall in price and Hartlett's price a bit too steep for my liking.
          Might go for Dixon.

  78. @Jacko2128 says:

    hold neade? or trade him down to rookie? which rookie too?

  79. johnnno says:

    I am strongly considering switching Gibbs for H. Shaw and tossing up between trading out Blicavs (and moving Rowe into RUC), and getting in either o’Hailpin (BE -26) or Winderlich (BE 7).

    I am liking Winderlich a bit more, but purely from a cash generation and flexibility point of view, leaning towards o’Hailpin.

    Any thoughts?

    • Birch's Buddy says:

      Keep Gibbsy. All good teams have him, and you'd be wasting a trade. We're all in the same boat here.

  80. David says:

    What to do with Walker?

    • Dave says:

      If you're talking about Taylor Walker, get him out of your team. He won't play another game this year.

    • Birch's Buddy says:

      Trade to best forward you don't have. Try listing your forward line mate! Might help us help you.

  81. Charlie says:

    Shaw or Dixon? Shaws form has just came back but Dixon looks real hungry for the ball? Help a fellow supercoacher out!

    • johnnno says:

      Shaw is a proven SC’er over a number of years. I think he would be a set and forget if you could get him in.
      With Dixon, he has started the year on fire, but you may have to roll with the ups and downs that he may bring.
      Even though Shaw’s BE is 79, he has dropped a total of $56k, so could be at his cheapest?

      I guess it depends on whether you plan on keeping Dixon for the rest of the season, or use him to potentially upgrade to a premium once he has reached his ceiling?

    • Birch's Buddy says:

      When Shaw has a good game, he has a REALLY good game. But he manages to balance the extraordinary with the disappointing too. Go for the Shaw risk if you feel like it, mate! If it pays off, you've got a bit of a headstart.

    • CHRIS says:

      shaw

    • FrontPocket says:

      I'm going with Dixon over Shaw for the simple reason that I like the way Dixon has been going about it.

  82. Dave says:

    Hi Guys,
    I need some help with some trades.
    Which is the better trade?
    Burgoyne—-> Hartlett and T. Walker—-> Lynch
    T.Walker —-> Monfries
    All advice will be greatly appreciated!

  83. Cold Ass Honky says:

    Have to get rid of Gibbs or Goodes to avoid a doughnut…

    Thinking of downgrading Goodes to Docherty or Laird, the using the cash to upgrade either:
    Mundy to Swan
    Wines to Mitchell/Jack/Swallow (Andrew)

    Whatever happens, the plan is to bring in Priddis when he bottoms out in a couple of weeks.

    Current Midfield is: Ablett, Watson, Pendles, JPK, Deledio, Mundy, Wines, O'Meara (Kommer, Jones).

    Good idea?

    Leaning towards dropping Wines, honestly, as Mundy could end up being a keeper..

  84. josh says:

    i have jacobs and dangerfield
    both letting me down
    is it time to trade or hope they start to perform?
    also have gibbs and goodes have terlich and vlastuin on the bench

  85. Birch's Buddy says:

    Hey boys, need a bit of help, as always! I really need to defeat my opponent this week.

    Got the normal Goodes issue, but I realise that Hawthorn have a GWS/GC/MELB feast in just over two weeks. So what I was initially planning to do was the following:

    Laird-Goodes this week.
    Use 550k cash to upgrade Stevenson and Dwyer/Neade to Birch and Buddy just before the demolition run.

    Then I realised that, Birchall wasn't going to drop by a whole lot before then, so I might as well buy him now. But then I saw Hartlett's B/E of 30-something (which means it was now or wait until after byes). So I tried the following.

    Goodes -> Laird
    Switch Gibbs into MID to avoid donut and trade Viney to Hartlett.
    Then in two weeks, bring Buddy in, but miss out on Birchall vs GWS/GC/MELB

    Then there was the side thought of bringing Watson in for Viney, but I don't think that would be a good idea with all my defensive problems.

    Any other variations involving somehow bringing Buddy at the bottom of his price curve, just before GWS (that is a definite must) and preferably Birchall too. Does anyone think Birchall will somehow be attainable during the byes?

    Also, after two trades this week, I will be done to 21 trades, but should have a complete team + 7 trades by the finals (barring major disasters).

    Thoughts. Any replies much appreciated!

    • Josh says:

      Goodes to laird and viney to hartlett both seem like good trades. Great idea on buddy mate, wait until after round 7 when the 57 goes out of his price calculations and he will have dropped a lot in price by then and playes arguably 3 worst teams in the comp!

  86. Shambo says:

    Fyfe out for 2… has me thinking, maybe trade him. Im thinking Fyfe to Pendlebury/Watson/Cotchin and Blicavs to Gawn.

  87. panicking!
    work on def or fwd rookies this week? im leaning towards def because of gibbs and goodes being out.
    now my problem is if i do one downgrade and one upgrade this week in def or fwd it leaves me with little to nothing in the war chest. is it a bad idea to do two downgrades this week to bubble boys to make my war chest grow?
    example:
    stevenson—>docherty AND pittard—>laird

    or

    should i do, for example, stevenson—->docherty AND pittard—–>heath shaw/charlie dixon/hamish hartlett/grant birchall
    i currently have $127000 in the bank__thoughts from the community would be greatly appreciated :)

    • James says:

      im in a similar predicament. i went with 1 downgrade 1 upgrade leaving me with 132k

    • Kermit the Frog says:

      I think it depends if points or cash are more important to you. I'm thinking about dumping Gibbs(assuming pittard/stevensen play) for Docherty or Laird, but I'm not convinced either will see a lot of game time. I traded in Westoff a couple of weeks ago and am not so sure about him now, so I really want to watch the defence premiums before committing to any of them. I am leaning towards trusting Wayno's hot tip and going with Docherty. Wayno is a Genius.

      • THE SALTSHAKERS says:

        docherty is a gun! but voss' revolving door means JS is an issue – hanley returns and black and staker will come back into best 22 – dochers might get some vest time – wait for teams if named he is pick of rookie defenders but as i say vossy got issues –

  88. Train says:

    Does anyone know when B. Staker is due back?

  89. THESALTSHAKERS says:

    Team: THESALTSHAKERS
    Overall Rank: 1413 (lost 408 spots from last week)
    Team this week:

    DEF: Goddard, Grimes, Stevenson, Pittard, Terlich, **Shaw** — Goodes, Gibbs

    MID: Ablett, Swan, Pendles, Kennedy, Wingard, Wines, O'Meara, Mayes —- Evans, Kommer

    Rucks: Goldstein, Leuenberger — *Gawn*, Rowe

    FWD: Franklin, Cox, Bartel, Rockliff, Kennedy, Dwyer — Neade, Macaffer

    * Trade 1 = Blicavs to Gawn
    ** Trade 2 = Brown to Shaw

    Had built enough coin for another DEF this week to move ahead in some points, had been eyeing shaw BE and was good to see him having a big game. Might have missed Hartlett and Birchall at this stage. Other option is Heppel against GWS?

    THEN to have Gibbs and Goodes both down….means I'm not getting ahead with my trade Im merely stopping the bleeding somewhat.

    Hoping Pittard gets up, and Brown passes concussion test – otherwise I might have to trade Goodes and miss out on Gawns cash rise in my rucks. Waiting for full teams before finalising trade.

    Would like to see Kommer get a run back in the team, thought he hasn't put a foot wrong so far this season but Ess flying.

    RECOMMEND: Those not heamoraghing in the backline to have a look at Winderlich….booted 8 goals in the VFL a few weeks back, played ripper against Pies has had a season in the 90's but had some inj – looks in good form in team playing on belief and solid spread

    • dannyboy says:

      hey im ranked 1413 to. i rose 1386 but now i got the fyfe, goodes, gibbs, pittard problem goin on. im waiting for teams to come out before i start deciding my moves. if pittard is ruled out then i might chop him. and i gotta think long and hard about fyfe and if ill lose to many points benching him for 2 weeks. also thinkin about using gibbs as a stepping stone for birchall and if its worth it. i got blicavs to but i wont make enough cash of him for what i need to do. i smashed most of my cash last week getting hartlett in. you are right tho ive been playin around testing out different trades and each one i do doesnt feel like an upgrade. what to do what to do…

      • THE SALTSHAKERS says:

        yeah i think gibbs will come good just miss 1 and yeah trading pittard might be an option instead? got feeling brown might not play this week – hence shaw trade. Fyfe to Heppel might help your team dannyboy if u can swap with Goodes – if you had money up to Ablett but all 3 out for 2 each will hurt ya

    • chandanrajdb says:

      I think is a good option…….to hold on to Gibbs and Goodes….

      Thinking of doing similar trades this week myself…..i am currently ranked 4683 overall……had a massive week in RD5 scored 2421……and currently having all sorts of problems with suspensions & injuries……Gibbs, Fyfe, Goodes, Pittard, Brown, Crouch……

      OUT: Brown IN Dixon / Shaw / Hibberd….not sure who to go for…..

      My Backline currently as it stands…..

      Goddard, Hartlett, Gibbs, Heppell, Goodes, Pittard, Terlich, Brown……

      OUT: Blicavs IN: Gawn……..

      Current Rucks…

      COX, Leuenberger, Rowe, Blicavs…….

      And final decision on the trades will be made once the teams are announced…….

      What do you guys think of trades……..suggestions / commets welcome……..

      • THE SALTSHAKERS says:

        your DEF looks strong especially when those two return – if u think u can get thru it then maybe one of ya other lines could do with a stevie j trade especially now he is set for more mid time this year..

        • chandanrajdb says:

          After the MRP decision on FYFE's 2 week ban……i am actually thinking to swap Fyfe to Steve J and Brown to Heath Shaw or C Dixon…..what do you think…..surely you cant have over 540k sitting on the bench and doing nothing……will effect the scores big time i think……

          Comments / suggestions welcome……..

          Thanks,
          Raj

          • THE SALTSHAKERS says:

            yeah dont know what they were thinkn appealing fyfe's kickn charge? – without knowing your team yeah i think those trades look good. Heppel got GWS this week but im stayn away from bombers for now…maybe just fix your defence holes is what im thinkn – but if you need a fwd upgrade then stevie j is your man – gibbs might be back as blues have longer break…then in 2 weeks bar inj ya team much stronger and cull next wave of rookies

            • chandanrajdb says:

              Thanks mate for the reply above…..

              I am actually not sure whether to trade Fyfe….may hold on to him……at this point…..i will be making the decision based on the teams tonight……if Brown doesnt get named then may have to bring another defender who is playing this week between Laird and Docherty……or i will be left with no backup in the defenders for gibbs and goodes…….one trade for sure is pittard is out this week for Dixon into my team…..cant afford to loose this week in my work place league……since i am playing against my BOSS…..we have a small bet going on as well…..worst fear is that he will be all over me if i loose……..scary…..

              Thanks
              Raj…..

    Jesus H Christ Jock, mi team has just been Gillarded – Suspensions, Injuries, etc. Got Balls of steel and i'm gonna take the hit.

    • Balls says:

      If this keeps up I'm going to rename mi team to those nappies that mi baby keeps dumping into, SNUGGLERS! – absolutely gone crappers.

  91. Gillie says:

    Everyone was talking about getting rid off and probly did get rid of J.Griffen. I held on to him and he scored 123! Bad luck if you did get rid off him.

  92. Kade says:

    Goodes-docherty

    K.lucas-cotchin

    Good call bad call?

    • Zap says:

      Could do better than Docherty imo. Check the teams when they come out (Laird, Ellis) Lucas to Cotchin is a winner.

      • pdid says:

        wait with lucas to cotchin you are getting an itchy trigger finger man! lucas will go up in price, and cotchin will go down. this year everybody will have a team full of great players, the only thing that will seperate teams this year is timing in trades and i feel everybody is getting way too excited!

  93. THE SALTSHAKERS says:

    blues got easy round lucas should get plenty this week

  94. rosco_peco says:

    I think i'm going to have to do a cash grab this week with only $23K in the bank, but who to trade? I have the usual suspects, in the same boat as pretty much everyone else, with Gibbs, Goodes, Pittard, Stevenson down back, Viney and Crouch in the mids, Blicavs in the ruck, and Dwyer on the bench up forward, all possible options.

    I'm contemplating one of PA bac's (likely Pittard if not named this week) and Blicavs getting the chop for Laird and Gawn. This will generate $200K in the bank + whatever cash they can generate down the track, but it doesn't really provide ideal bench coverage for donuts, especially down back and in the mids should any starters be dropped. Any thoughts? Team currently as follows;

    BAC: Birchall, Goddard, Heppell, Stevenson, Pittard, Terlich, (Gibbs, Goodes)
    MID: Ablett, Swan, Pendlebury, Dangermouse, Wines, Lucas, O'Meara, Mayes, (Viney, Crouch)
    RUC: Cox, Leuenberger, (Blicavs, Currie)
    FWD: Westhoff, Cloke, Kennedy, Rockliff, Zorko, Neade, (Dwyer, Macaffer)

    Cheers!

    • Gilly says:

      I am thinking about trading Dangermouse out (which I hate, must stick with premiums), with Tex Walker going down Dangermouse may return to Neil Craig days where he spent more time forward.

      Move Gibbs/Goodes to mid bench and bring in a say Hartlett or a defender.

      Currently in my backline I have Gibbs, Goodes, Heath, Stevenson and Pittard so I need to find some cover.

  95. Cal says:

    Currently I have My rucks as

    Jacobs , Rowe, Bliclavs , currie
    (Cox Forward)

    Is there any value in a straight swap Jacobs to luenburger and using the 100 grand next week in another area

  96. Cold Ass Honky says:

    Need help picking an upgrade defender,

    Birchall
    Hanley
    Hartlett
    Shaw

    Who's the best bet?

  97. udi says:

    thhinking about trading wines or omera for a premium who averages 120+

    is it too early?? should i hang on to both of them till mid season??

  98. Ally says:

    What's everyones thoughts on bringing staker as a downgrade option as I'm looking at parting ways with Sammy Dwyer ?? I read he could make his afl comeback in round 7 .

    • dave says:

      i would wait till he is named

    • Kermit the Frog says:

      wait until staker has played 2 games. his price won't rise before that and you get a look at how he is going before committing.. Dwyer will probably still go up in price over that time also, so you would effectively get staker for a few bucks less.

  99. rosco_peco says:

    Hey Jock, love your work.

    With Pittard out, and the lack of quality rookies with decent JS, would it be entirely crazy to trade out Pittard and Dwyer and bring in Ellis and Winderlich. Both scored very well given full game time, and against quality opposition? Or do you think they're likely to cope the green vest again.

    Ellis – 134 against Freo (averaged 27 per quarter round 1-4)
    Winderlich – 123 against Colliwobbles (17 in a quarter and a bit – round 4 vs STK)

    • rosco_peco says:

      The other option of course is Westhoff to Winderlich – pocketing another $330K before Westhoff starts losing cash. This would leave $350K in the bank for upgrades in coming weeks.

  100. Uh oh says:

    Hey guys , I've traded out pittard and Dwyer , I've brought in Steve Johnson and laird , I've got 126,600 in the war chest…are they ok moves or should I bring a pendles or Watson in ?? Help please

  101. Gillie says:

    Is it worth trading Gibbs or should I hold??

    • BubbaNo1 says:

      hold

      • dave says:

        trade.
        i think he will be out for about 2 weeks because its a hammy prob. will mick risk him by just giving a week off??? i cant afford to have him and goodes sitting in the bench for 2 weeks. to make things worst FYFE got 2 weeks last night. i m going to bring gibbs back after the bye round.

    • CHRIS says:

      hold. even if you have to take a donut

    • Scott says:

      Get rid i say.. his low score last week will drag his price down even more so could pick him up in a couple weeks for even cheaper! You could trade him out for a prem defender and then upgrade a rookie back to gibbs in a few weeks

  102. Eugene says:

    If you had to trade out one of Fyfe/Priddis/Gibbs, which would you do?

  103. Tim says:

    what to do with pittard???

    I’m thinking upgrade to Dixon, Heppell, Hartlett or Birchall

    Also thinking of downgrade for some extra cash to get my war chest up to 750k

    • Gillie4 says:

      Upgrade! Don't waste too much time with money in the bank. Also consider Sgaw he's at a very low price!

  104. Benny says:

    I just went:
    Pittard —> Docherty
    Goodes —> Shaw

    Good call? bad call?
    Have 97k in the war chest after those trades. Should I have gone birchall instead and not worry about the war chest or go the other way and get Dixon or hibberd to increase the war chest?

  105. @Jacko2128 says:

    play sinclair or neade? or even rowe as he faces the dees?

  106. ivan says:

    hey jock thanks for adive bro. 2465 on the week 252 rank and into top 10,000 .

    now have gibbs goods pittard , thinking I may move hartlett in my mid to defence and trade gibbs to premo mid ! or downgrade goods ? not many gun rookie defenders.

  107. ivan says:

    keep in mind have Docherty already thanks

  108. supercoachwarrior says:

    should i get rid of scotty thompson from adelaide to pendles

  109. BBB says:

    I don't think people know when to drink milk and hold or slaughter the cow and tuck into a nice juicy steak. Crouch is out for 2-3, Viney is unknown, Pittard/ Stevenson are unknown, Goodes is out for 2-3 and Rowe is unknown with Waite now playing. In my team Fyfe is now out for 2 weeks and Gibbs is out 2-3.

    Everyone is saying that you should drink milk and not slaughter, but can your team really afford it, mine can't. One of my best trades this year was Viney out last week and Mayes in, this will definitely pay off with the suspension of Fyfe. Rookies are in your team to make money and not to sit on your pine, they're not superstars. If they're out for 2 or more depending on their quality, you should trade them out for cash generation which is what the game is about.

    I'm not saying to chop all of your cash cows and i've heard people wanting to trade out Wines, Moloney, Neade and Fyfe. These guys have given you significant money and still have low BEs so they're not done yet. If your going to slaughter your rookies you've got to know who.

    I know that this week is a huge opportunity for teams under performing like mine to rise up the rankings and become a real threat. Depending on who's out between Pittard and Stevenson I will be definitely be trading them down to upgrade Goodes and strengthen my weak backline. Surely you guys are on the same page as me.
    Cheers

    • Gillie says:

      I agree! I traded Viney to Mayes last week to payed off heaps! Also traded K.Mitchell out for Evans which was also a good trade. This week I have Goodes, Pittard, Stevenson, and Gibbs. I a going to trade out Goodes for Gawn by Swapping Blicavs to midfield then I will upgrade Stevenson/Pittard for Goodard or another premium!

      • macareec says:

        Good trades but i reckon just trade blicavs out for gawn has nearly hit his ceiling already and goodes still has a lot to come as long as you have bench cover

      • BBB says:

        Thanks mate, if you have enough cash and enough players i would just trade Blicavs straight to Gawn and then try to upgrade Stevenson/Pittard if possible. I'm only trading Goodes because i need another premium for Gibbs and i dont want to risk a donut

      • Michael says:

        Not sure if your Mitchell to Evans is gonna pay off given Mitchell is back on the PA list and will get a run this week whereas Evans may not get a game this week. Had you been able to hold out on MItchell another week you would've saved a trade, maybe 2 trades if you need to get rid of Evans. Bit of bad luck there IMO!

  110. Callum says:

    How fo these trades sound:
    Gibbs~ Docherty
    Dwyer~ Watson

    Wanted to get rid of gibbs because otherwise i would have a donut playing, and also it is a hammy so it could be longer than what is expected. But i would bring him back for one of the port rookies before they're bye.

  111. jonty says:

    any ideas who to trade in for Gibbs, (480,000 in back but don't want to spend heaps)

    • jonty says:

      bank*^

      • Gillie says:

        Well you could go up around $60k to either Birchal/Goddard/Hanley/Hartlett or you could down just a little bit to Shaw who looked good scoring 130 on the weekend and at a good price or Dixon/Heppel/Hibberd. I personally think go to Shaw if you don't have him and want to save cash because with that trade you will be getting a couple grand. But if you do or don't want him I would look to upgrade to one of the four in the top line they all look pretty good. Or you could take the punt on Dixon/Heppel/Hibberd.

    • Scott says:

      Burgoyne and Hartlett are looking good. I opted for Burgoyne as I believe the Hawks have an easier run coming up than Port and should score well

  112. laterra2511 says:

    what do you guys think of my trade for this week
    INWines ($354,000)
    INBirchall ($566,200
    OUT Stevenson ($253,600)
    OUT Petrie ($438,900)
    good call? bad call? could really use some advice here :)

    • Gillie says:

      Stevenson to Birchall is good but I think you have missed the boat on Wines he's coming up against sone good midfields. I think either downgrade Petrie or upgrade him no Point getting wines. Maybe downgrade one of your other rookies then upgrade Petrie. Petrie's break even is only 43 this week so he will go up a bit this week.

  113. Bobby says:

    Hi guys, really enjoy reading the comments and listening to the pod.

    Need some advice. Currently am top (somehow) of my major league and am wondering thoughts on getting rid of Blicavs vs taking a donut in the backline? At the moment am looking at Duncan & Steven (or alternatively Stevens) out for an elite prem mid and either goodes into the middle as a placeholder and rookie defender (Laird) or Blicavs out,hold Steven and get in Gawn. I am burning trades at the moment due to a lot of initial (foolish) errors.

    Currently have about 150k. Also thoughts on Ablett vs Watson in this week and the other in the next? Does Crowley usually play on GAJ?

    Cheers in advance!

  114. Phil says:

    Laird or Docherty?

  115. udi says:

    dwyer or gawn to score more??

  116. EPR says:

    Alright so i posted above that i wanted to bring Ablett and Gawn in this week however I've hit a massive roadblock in the form of Gibbs, Goodes and Pittard!

    I've burnt 8 trades already this season so i cant afford to stuff around sideways with Gibbs and Goodes, they have to stay, so Pittard is going to be Gaaawwnn, Max like.

    The question is, do i downgrade to Docherty, on the bubble, or upgrade to Shaw, who is as low as he's gonna go.

    Im feeling Shaw at the moment, as i really want to get my backline settled but I'm not sure.

    My other trade is gonna be Blicavs to Gawn but if anyone can give me a better option than that im open for advice.

    Any help would be much appreciated…

    • Gillie4 says:

      I think Shaw is a great trade in he is at a very low price and as hit some great form in the last two games. He has been in my team from the start! Was doing the same this week I was going to get in Gawn and Watson but I also had Goodes, Gibbs, and Pittard!

  117. Gillie4 says:

    Who should I get out of Hartlett/Goddard/Hibberd/Heppell or Dixon?

  118. udi says:

    hartlett

  119. Gillie4 says:

    Great Podcast!! Every week I look forward to listening to the podcast and commenting and getting advice and giving advice! Where is everyone ranked? Anyone in the top thousand? I think everyone has At least has 2 injuries in their this week most have 5! The way people trade this week will be the difference between making a great team to going down in rankings!

  120. Gillie4 says:

    Waiting for Team selections hopefully all port defenders are selected…..very unlikely tho!

  121. Scott says:

    Any thoughts on Harry Taylor from the cats? He has been getting fwd from defence quite a bit and has scored 100+ in the past 3 games against tough opponents

    • Scott says:

      Or should i bring in some1 like burgoyne/hartlett/shaw….?

      Or a rookie such as Laird…

      • EPR says:

        Hartlett/shaw

      • Curtis says:

        with rivers injured taylor is likely to go back a bit more seeing as geelong brought in 2 fowards in hawkins and chapman, id personally go harlett he has a low break even and once his price starts flatening out u can pick up someone like goddard

  122. jonathan says:

    Docherty out, who to replace him with? is lard lard the only option

  123. Gillie4 says:

    Duffield is in. Stevenson is still in and Pittard still out! Laird out! Docherty out! A few new faces too do keep an eye on there might be a few juicy trade down options in a couple weeks! And if you have held on to Witts he is in!

  124. Anth says:

    Should I go cam sinclair to gawn, or blicavs to gawn?

  125. Curtis says:

    Hi guys just wondering what i should do in my backiline ive got heppell, pittard. goodes, gibbs and i was smart and picked up staker at the start of the year. What ive done is traded out gibbs and dangerfield put goodes to my mid bench and pick up birchall but not sure wheter to go Hartlett or Goddard. I need someone wholl score hugely as ill definetley be one man down theres no way around that, HELP NEDDED!!!!!!!
    .

    • Gillie4 says:

      Well Goddard is versing GWS should score a lot and Hartlett is starting to verse good sides!

      • Curtis says:

        cheers

        • Curtis says:

          im versing the guy at the bottom of my leagues ladder this week so should i get hartlett get the money from him going up or should i play it safe
          ps if i buy goddard i have $66000 and harlett $113300

          • Gillie4 says:

            Harlett does look good! Yeah I think that would be better more cash and looking good! I'm not sure how he will go against quality teams tho!

  126. Curtis says:

  127. matt says:

    Hi all what do you think of Winderlich do you really think he is always going to be in Essenden's best 22. Also what sort of risk is he to get injuried again. and do think he could be a vest possability some weeks. any thought would be appreciated.

  128. Sully says:

    got 4 defenders out with gibbs, pittard, goodes, and heppell going to trade 2 of them $127.000 in the bank or I could take one donut for a round

  129. Gillie4 says:

    This is my trades for the week going to hold Gibbs and Goodes on the bench!
    I have 144,000 in the bank:
    Out: Pittard In: Seriakowski
    Out: Blicavs In: Gawn
    These trades Leaves me with 345,000 in the bank
    Thoughts??

  130. Scott says:

    Who to play on field: Macaffer, Kerridge or Dwyer

    • Bullie says:

      Macaffer is probably the safest option

      • Gillie4 says:

        Dywer

        • Scott says:

          This makes it all confusing now haha it says macaffer is playing HB , Dwyer playing FF and Kerridge is playing C.. Wouldn’t there be more oportunity for Kerridge to get big pts?

          • Adrian says:

            Macaffer will take part of Tooveys role of half back and could get quite a nice score. So Macaffer for mine

  131. PLEASE HELP!!! says:

    I know everyone is struggling with their back lines at the moment and I am struggling too.

    I have Heppell who won't play this round, Goodes (suspended) and Gibbs ("hamstring injury") WHAT DO I DO! And they are all good dream team players!!

    I have 3 OPTIONS:

    1. Trade one of them out
    2. Trade two of them out (I don't like this option)
    3. Don't trade any of them out and miss out on scoring around 80 points for this round

    PLEASE give me suggestions

    THOUGHTS WILL DEFINITELY BE APPRECIATED

  132. Bullie says:

    Would anyboby consider bringing in Evans this week or have I missed the boat? I am thinking of trading out Mullett who has made $90k for me but may have peaked.

  133. Osh says:

    What are our thoughts on Ben Kennedy

  134. Scott says:

    Burgoyne or Hibberd?

    :)

  135. Connor says:

    hey guys, upgrading sammy Dwyer for someone.
    Can't decide between swan, Watson or Steve J
    Would love some advice, thanks

  136. Mr D. says:

    First off, Happy Friday all!

    With all the craziness going on my team has been decimated.. I have Heppell, Gibbs, Goodes, Pittard Docherty AND Fyfe.. So i am staring 2 fat donuts in defence this week. luckily Biney is playing or would be facing 3.

    Currently i am tops in my league(woohoo)undefeated, so im thinking that a loss wont hurt too badly. but what do i do.. either way i am trading our pittard but not sure if i should trade for a cash cow (terlich/vlastuin/oshea) or a premo (h.shaw)

    currently have 330k in the bank 24 moves remaining.

    team as it stands

    DEF – Goddard, heppell, goodes, pittard, gibbs, docherty, stevenson and grimes

    MID – Cotchin, selwwod, Dangerfield, mundy, wines, o’meara, k.stevens, viney, crouch and fyfe

    RUCK – jacobs, luenberger, rowe and currie

    FWD – Westoff, Kennedy, le cras, dusty, rockliff, mayes, neade and lee

    any trade suggestions/ideas welcome.

    Thanks in advance.

    p.s. thanks fantasy gods.. not.

  137. Luke says:

    Hi first time post, long time reader.
    Was having trouble like everyone this week, and had $240,000 in bank. With Gibbs, Goodes, Pittard and docherty all in the backline, had to do something. I didnt want to lose Gibbs or Goodes as I think both will be really valuable in the long term. And I really wanted to bring Heath Shaw in while his cheap with his very small BE.
    So this weeks trades are:
    Pittard -> Heath Shaw
    B Crouch(MID) -> Vlastuin in the midfield, then subbed Gibbs to midfield bench and put Vlastuin on the ground in Defense. This will also be valuable in the bye rounds with another DPP. Gibbs will be put back into Defense once he comes back in.
    Then next weeks trades will be:
    Cloke out for Franklin after Cloke goes up by another $30k'ish and Franklin goes down. Then sub Rowe into the ruck and trade Blicavs(another DPP with Cox in the forward line) out for Winderlich when he plays his third game and will only go up.
    Tell us what you think, Thanks.

  138. Jay says:

    On the positive note, plenty of options for Captain's loophole this week (Goddes, Gibbs, Heppell) – hopefully the massive score by Pendles last night covers up the donut in the backline!!

  139. Azza says:

    I agree with you there Jock, get a premium midfield in first because that's where the points are! Leave the defense until later, unless you are injury ravaged like last week.

  140. Spifflicator says:

    Good to see Danger back to his best! While Buddy 'fools gold' Franklin continues to spud it up and will likely miss a few on a video review.
