Round Three SuperCoach Panic Room

Filed in Panic Room, Supercoach 2018 by on 06/04/2018 • views: 7862

SuperCoach starts NOW, Community!

We spent many, many weeks ruining our eyesight looking at the unreasonably small video streams of JLT games, all for carefully crafting the “perfect” SuperCoach lineup for 2018. Now we’ve had two weeks to assess how they’ve performed. Smashed it out of the park first two weeks? Good stuff. Marvellous. Not gone so great? No reason to panic. SuperCoach is won by smart trading, rage trading, and stupid sideways moves. That’s where you’ll make up ground while the leaders bask in the glory of having the best team in April.

Now’s the time to be ruthless. It’s time to look your team square in eye and cut the dead weight. It’s time to get in the guys who will give you a solid foundation for the rest of the year.

Your first order of business this week is to get your rookies right, as discussed in the podcast they are four rookie kings you need. Doedee, Fin, Kelly, and Holman. The rest? Ehhh, there’s really no point chasing anyone else. You can then look at corrective trades and jumping on midpricers you may have missed. Always do your research here, Community. Ask yourself why this premium is suddenly sucking, and why is this mid pricer suddenly scoring like a premo?

Try as I might to bring you a happy positive panic room. Matt Crouch faces time on the sidelines and needs to go. Sicily will also miss a week through suspension. Though I’m inclined to hold him, you picked him knowing he was a flog and this flog will still make you cash. Reckon he’s on his last chance though. There’s also Zerrett and Hibberd worrying a few. Out of the two, I think Hibberd needs to go. His role is different, if you knew this two weeks ago you might have reconsidered paying top dollar for him. Though there’s some selection news this week that might just sway you towards keeping him.

There has been a TONNE of information on the site this week to help you navigate through this week. The podcast kicked off what is arguably the most important week in SuperCoach, Barron gave us the lowdown on the rookie situation and Sloane and Damo have combined once again to bring us captain choices and trade targets for this week.

THE NEWS

The Big Kruuuuuuuze is back and confirmed to lineup tomorrow night along with Matt Kennedy. Cam O’Shea has fallen victim to the last one in, first one out rule of thumb. Remember when the guy was all the rage preseason? The Pies regain Been Reid and Cox but lose Darcy Moore to injury.

Mitch Robinson is straight back in for the Lions after his one week holiday, I suspect he’ll be having many more throughout the year. The Dees have recalled Sam Frost which is interesting for Hibberd owners. Does this allow him to go back to being more a rebounder?


Pearce Hanley fused his shoulder with a fence that was meant to see him out until round 5-6, he’s back for the suspended Jack Bowes.

An injured Bradley Hill makes way for Freo in their only change. The Giants will replace Tom Scully with Jacob Hopper, while ZGL is out with a busted hand. Toby Greene must have a bloody tight hammy, he hasn’t been named.

The Saints have slammed the panic button and will trust Rowan Marshall to go against Sam Jacobs on Saturday night. Good luck buddy. Richo has also handed a debut to Nick Coffield. Hunter Clark will remain on the bubble for at least another week. Jack Steele and Koby Stevens have been dropped. For the Crows, Darcy Fogarty is goneski for Tom Lynch, and Richard Douglas is handy replacement for the injured Matt Crouch.

On Sunday, the Tigers and the Hawks will have a minimum of six changes between them. The SuperCoach relevant Sicily, Caddy, and Corey Ellis among them. My boy Jack Higgins is confirmed to debut and I can finally take Dion Prestia off the pine in my draft league. Dave Mirra has again been named on an extended bench for the Hawks. Of their 7 named ins, 6 are on the extended bench. Cheers, Clarko!

Neither of the Eagles or the Cats have confirmed outs as yet, but Tom Cole is a chance to debut. The Dogs have been dealt a blow to their already thin “ruck” department, losing Roughead and Trengove but regain Tom Boyd. Essendon haven’t confirmed any outs as yet, but their ins won’t lead you to a panic trade.

HOUSE OF EVIL

The breakeven section was going to be titled The Upside Down but I’ve had a brainwave. While thinking of good and bad things in Stranger Things I could use as categories, my brain started with the “that’s good / that’s bad” scene from The Simpsons and thus, the House of Evil was born.

As mentioned, Tim Kelly, Tom Doedee, Nick Holman, and Jeremy Finlayson all have breakevens of -120 or above! All absolute non-negotiable must haves this week.

These guys come with a free frogurt (that’s good!)

-84 – Liam Ryan

-60 – Lachie Fogarty

-57 – Sam Murray

-56 – Jake Waterman

-52 – Lachlan Murphy

-51 – Bayley Fritsch

-48 – Zac Fisher

-44 – Riley Bonner

-42 – Bailey Banfield

-3 – Andrew Brayshaw

9 – LDU

25 – Aaron Naughton

33 – Paddy Dow

 

These premiums contain potassium benzoate (that’s bad!)

Zach Merrett – 241

Tom Rockliff – 239

Dayne Zorko – 221

Marc Murphy – 216

Taylor Adams – 202

Dayne Beams – 200

Brandon Ellis – 193

Sam Menegola – 194

Michael Hibberd – 175

Lachie Neale – 158

Nat Fyfe – 157

Josh Kelly – 146

 

As a final note, the man, the myth, the legend, Old Ocker has just casually dropped a stat lovers wet dream. His preseason spreadsheets were a thing of beauty and it’s here for you now to try and get your head around it.

 

SMOOTH KEVY’S LOCK OF THE WEEK


Jarrod Witts wasn’t awful last week so the lock gets dusted off for another week.

Patrick Dangerfield, Clayton Oliver, JPK, Nat Fyfe, and Tom Mitchell led the way in average contested possessions last year. Champion Data loves the guys that get the pill themselves over the uncontested variety, so it makes sense to target this stat when looking at guys to trade in.

Tom Mitchell is already averaging 25 a game, although at 653k he might be out of reach for some. Patrick Cripps is much more affordable at 537k and is averaging 22.5 a game. He was followed around by Holman on Saturday and the Blues lost by 5 goals, but he still scored a handy 115 on the back of 20 contested possessions.

I said in the preseason that it would be tough for Cripps to improve his already amazing stats even more, it’s a small sample size but this year he’s averaging +5 disposals, +9 contested possessions, and +3 clearances compared to last year. While lifting his TOG% from an already impressive 83.5% to 88%. All of that equals don’t listen to me!

I don’t expect him to continue racking up 20+ contested possessions a game (now that I’ve said this, expect 30 contested against the Pies…), his bye and relatively safe floor makes him a good inclusion into your midfield.

 

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR!

Last weeks lineup was hit hard by the early injury to Matt Crouch and Bachar Houli just straight up sucking. Just over 28k of our salary returned 82DS. Not great and the ideal lineup fell off the pace pretty quickly.

A common trap in Draftstars is feeling you need to spend all of your salary to get the most bang for your buck. This is definitely not the case, like SuperCoach pick a line up that you’re confident will score well, rather than stressing over the 1k you have left over.

The Battle of the Bridge is on Saturday night, this is the ideal lineup according to Fantasy Insider.

A midfield stack looks the way to go in this game. There are 4 players currently averaging over 110 – Coniglio, Whitfield, Kelly, and Parker, and a further 5 more averaging between 90 and 101 – Taranto, Heeney (both fwd eligible) Shiel, JPK, and Ward. Stuff as many of these guys into your lineup as you can and hope you hit the right combination.

Here’s my take on the game.

While Sinclair has had a good start to the year, slotting in Lobb as your ruck allows you to squeeze Tim Taranto (MID/FWD – $11,250) into your forwards. He’s been magnificent so far, scoring 91DS and 112DS, averaging 27.5 touches a game.

Finlayson is only 1 of 4 mids under 10k so I expect him to be highly owned, but it does mean both defensive options are a bit shit. Rampe and Grundy are averaging 45 and 37.5DS respectively so far this year. I hoped for Robbie Fox to keep his spot but he’s out and thrown my plans right out the window. Finlayson and Hopper are the only two mids under 10k for the clash, cheap plays need to be in the forward or defensive lines.

Maybe Will Hayward (FWD – $7,250) or Ollie Florent (FWD – $7,000) could be the way to go? Hayward has gone 79DS, 30DS, while Florent has gone 24DS, 83DS. Which one? Uhhhh, Florent… I think. Maybe?

Adam Tomlinson (DEF – $9,750) is the second best averaging defender behind Lloyd and costs 3k less. I’ll be trying to include him in my lineup.

Player to avoidBuddy is 16k and while his ceiling is yuuuuuuge, he can also tank hard. It also means putting your trust into a cheapie and there aren’t many to pick from on this slate.

A quick shoutout to Stacy of Brockers Boys for leading the way in the JR Community group with an overall ranking of 73! (Code: 505844. Jump in if you haven’t yet).

Best of luck this week, community!

    Pray for my footy tips.

    • BloodyFranklin says:

      Nup… my tips are going as well as Collingwoods spelling.

      … Might just have to call it a nihgt 😴

    • Russty_ says:

      I'm 6 for 6 so far, just gotta hope the Hawks beat the Tigers and I'll be home and hosed ! 🙂

      • Defying_Madness says:

        I hope we beat the tigers as well. Good luck with your tips

  2. Morzaaa says:

    Whats the go with Duncan?? Cant seem to find any decent info on his hammy!!!

  3. SC anaylsis pro says:

    I just don't understand all the fuss of Tom Mitchell being a must have.
    I mean he averaged 105 back in 2016, solid but doesn't scream pick me.
    In 2017 if you takes out his 100's he only averaged 87. 87? Excuse me for wanting a but more from my premiums.
    Even this year if you take out his best 2 scores he hasn't scored anything! Way to small sample to make any of the bold statements I'm hearing.
    Remember, Sydney wouldn't have let him go if he was the Superman every one seems to be making him out to be. I'll pass thanks

    • SC_Kev7 says:

      If you take out his 100's from 2017 that's taking out 20/22 games 😜

      A player hitting a 100 90% of time is pretty bloody handy!

      • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

        My mancrush for titch is well documented.
        Wrote an article on him presaeson.
        20/22 scores over 100 with a low of i think 87.

        Doesnt know how to have a bad game.
        Nearly 100 possessions in first two games with an uplift in kicks and goals in first two rounds.
        Leading everyone including dusty after two rounds for points scored so far.
        A lazy 50 ahead of clarey.

        Played for Sydney in 2016 where he shared points with the fab 4. Now numero uno.

        But i guess if you take all that away he is having an ordinary couple of years.
        In my eyes Titch is up to scratch.

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      Yeah you make a good point. He's only been getting 50 touches. He really needs to convert those half centuries into big centuries to be worth selection.

    • INPieman says:

      Before you start your SC research learn how to spell "analysis"

    • uDonkey says:

      Yeah i want my premiums to have at least 70 possessions a game. 50 just doesn't cut it for me.

      • Tyruddanaut says:

        It doesn’t matter how many touches they get; they will never be as good as Levi Casboult

    • neil demons delight says:

      What a load of cods SC. He is challenging Martin and Danger and Oliver( must throw him in) for no.1 Cause it was written jockingly sic wasn't it

    • Derek says:

      If you took all the games that Zac Dawson scored over 100 in his average would be 105.
      (Sample size of one)

    • SC analysis pro says:

      OMG. I seem to have hit a nerve with everybody's flavour of the month player
      By the way gentlemen, I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Data Analysis. Just out of curiosity, what are your qualifications?

      • Nuggety says:

        My qual is not being a flog..

        • redherringfc says:

          I actually have a masters in being a flog.

          I’ve just enrolled in a phd in Flogg-offery, going to do my thesis on the misinterpretation of sarcasm for fact amongst the supercoach community.

      • Derek says:

        I got what you were saying and thought it funny.

        It’s friday afternoon in the Panic Room, no time for funny stuff

      • Its a Nerd says:

        well congratulations professor i'm sure that will be very useful topic at the dinner table

      • The Ranger says:

        I wrote my PHD on machine learning but I'm still crap at supercoach.
        I've also got a First Aid certificate and recently did some Practical Portable Fire Extinguisher Training.

        • gator59 says:

          I have a black belt in Karate and a gold medal in the commonwealth games, Well maybe not but will the Ettamogah Pub games do …Also have a motorbike. Truck and Forklift license… So am I over qualified or under

          • neil demons delight says:

            One hardly needs a degree to succeed in supercoach just a good memory good research and LOADS of LUCK I would back that against jake's stupid degree

            • Tyruddanaut says:

              Hold on, hold on….
              Loads of l….
              Luck…..
              loads….
              Of luck
              No……
              You, my friend, obviously don’t have a PhD in biology

      • redherringfc says:

        Degree in pure mathematics.

      • Tyruddanaut says:

        I have a major in Commerce and an undergraduate degree in Data Analysis

      • paul says:

        I am statistical Analysis And the probability of item Mitchell improving his average taken on samples from last year and this indicates to me you are wrong Sc analysis pro.His past years 2015/ 2916 averages of 104 at the Swans age 21 saw limited midfield time as the swans had an efficient engine room thus lack of hot spot time in the guts.This is the key element of change which your Bachelor Degree in Data analysis will not expose.In 2017 sample Mitchell jumped in average from a constant of 104 at the swans to a staggering 118.9. WHY. At the prime age of 24 for supercoach not an apprentice anymore he is now controlling the midfield for the Hawks.Time in the engine room plus experience increases the likelihood of sample Mitchell improving his average again this year.The equation difference you don't have with figures is HOT spot TIME, EXPERIENCE and CHANGE.

    • hedski says:

      Close to, if not the funniest comment of the year. Love it.

    • lachy says:

      You don't understand then. Mitchell only averaged 104 because Sydney hated the shit out of him. He would gather 60 disposals in the seconds every week.

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      TRIGGERED! Nice job Anal pro!

    • Locked and Loaded says:

      This has to be the funniest comment I’ve seen on this page lol degree in data analysis are you sure about that? This has to be a bit of fishing by the lad

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      It’s great how everyone is falling for this obvious troll

  4. Westy says:

    Naughton and D Fogarty out
    Murphy and Venables in for an extra 90k cash plus however much they go up.
    28 trades left.
    Sticking with Hibberd and Zorko for one more week just to see.

    • Northerner says:

      Solid trades, squarely focused on cash generation. That’s absolutely number 1 objective this time of year all this premium swapping that goes on is not worth it.

  5. Matt says:

    Are these good trades?
    ZGL – Ryan
    Keeffe – Murphy

    Or should I just hold?

    • INPieman says:

      Looks like Ryan has good JS. Not sure about Murphy. One quiet game & he's likely to get dropped

      • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

        Got gallucci waiting in the wings.

      • Matt says:

        Cheers for the response pieman! I agree on Murphy, do you reckon it would be a wasted trade then? Is it better to wait for a rookie with better JS?

        • INPieman says:

          Probably only need 4-5 games from Murphy from here. But will he last that long. Brett Eddy scars are still fresh. Perhaps wait for something more sure

        • David C says:

          See how Ed Richards goes in his second game for the doggies. Might have better JS the way the doggies are going.

    • Sc_Wow says:

      You might as well Keeffe isn't doing much

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Yes

  6. Marcus says:

    Sitting on both Greene and Sicily in my forward line
    Worth punting 1 or safer just to hold?

  7. TheGreatBozza says:

    Option 1:
    Fiorini > Gray (garlett DPP to mids, allows me to move Holman on to field over playing an extra FWD rookie)
    Thomas > Ryan

    Option 2:
    Lambert > Gray/Heeney
    Thomas > Ryan

    Option 3:
    Fiorini > Danger
    Lambert > Ryan

    • Jackel says:

      Option 2 with Gray easily. Very good double

      • SC anaylsis pro says:

        Sorry just looked at Option 1 again, that's actually better cos you get Holman on ya field. Gray and Ryan in is very good either way

        • TheGreatBozza says:

          I'm torn between 1 & 2. I think having Holman on the field outweighs having a combo of Thomas and Fiorini. Both have been punching out 70's with 20 touches a week. I think Fiorini has a higher ceiling

    • Rhys says:

      If you trade out Fiorini he'll get 100 in his next game

    • pod says:

      Option 3 for that bloke Danger he goes alright

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Option 2 with Heeney would be ideal.
      Heeney is going to be the top scoring non-key forward-forward in the game at the rate

  8. Ahmad rubas says:

    Def:
    Hurley laird hibberd Bonner finlayson doedee (Murray emg Murphy)
    Mid:
    Danger C Kelly Fyfe Cripps VC coniglio brayshaw Kelly Holman (Dow emg banfield Clark)
    Ruck:
    Gawn Goldstein (olango)
    Forwards:
    Heeney billings smith petracca Christensen Ryan (Fritsch emg Langdon)
    30 trades 67k
    problems: no dusty or titch and underperforming hibberd also dow and Clark are poor rookies
    Ideal trade is downgrade hibberd to a rookie and upgrade Clark to dusty but no worthy rookie to downgrade hibberd to.
    Would the best move be trading Clark to Barry and save the other trade? I could also not use any trades if Dow performs really well Friday night and use Clark as a loophole

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Good luck getting dusty and Tich in

      • Ahmad rubas says:

        Yeah I'll need it I've stuffed up by not starting them just have to hope they have bad games and drop in price which in titch is case is unlikely as he is a ton machine

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Hibberd is having a role change this week, hold
      I’d actually hold completely. You have a good team structure and shouldn’t get caught up in sideways trades

      • Ahmad rubas says:

        Ended up using no trades. Not by choice though didn't have service to make any trades during Friday and Saturday. Annoyed I missed out on Barry first price rise so have to wait for another rookie I guess

  9. James says:

    Hold Bont or sideways to Cripps? Doesn't look like being a top 10 mid this year

    • CJudd3Votes says:

      Bont no longer getting 20 points extra a game from being Champion Data's love child. Over rated in my opinion so it probably comes down to whether you think the dogs are going to keep getting trounced or turn it around as he doesnt strike me as the kind of guy that will score well in a losing side

  10. Sc_Wow says:

    The big pig to ton up this week, if he lifts I'll be cracking 2500's

    • INPieman says:

      Which pig?

      • Sc_Wow says:

        Piggy Hibberd

        • uDonkey says:

          Liking his chance of lifting this week SC_Wow. He's back in my team

        • INPieman says:

          I'm undecided still if I will get rid of him. I'll knock a few pints over thinking about it. If I do it's straight to Simmo

          • Sc_Wow says:

            I'm not 100% sold on anyone to replace him with, and feel he has to lift. Hopefully can get back to his old ways, just a couple 120s will boost him right back up there.

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      I admire you on the skys the limit pedestal you mount yourself onto Wow!

  11. Vinny says:

    What should i community? Only have 9,000

    Matt Crouch to Clayton Oliver

    OR

    Naughton to M.O’Connor/Ed.Richards
    Matt Crouch to Tom Mitchell (already have Dusty and danger)

    OR

    Matt Crouch to a Cripps ( around that value)
    Naughton to Bonner.

    OR

    Hold both, start LDU on field for crouch for three weeks

    Would love other suggestions or any advice on the above three trades. Thanks for reading 🙂 It’s Panic time!!!

  12. uDonkey says:

    Thank goodness, reverse button still works. Welcome back to my team Hibbo. Pederson and Hunt being drumped, Lewis has been moved to center bounce hope he stays there and Vince will be pushing up the ground more. Lever and Hibbo will have field day in the backline.

    Oh! My 3yo deleted my account. Tried to recover it, had no luck. Oh well!

    • neil demons delight says:

      Wise move doncs I THINK you will find Frost will take the 2nd tall and Lewis will stay mids Lever will be THE sweeper

  13. Peter says:

    Two questions:

    – Should I trade Naughton to Bonner?

    – Should I downgrade Paddy Dow to another rookie for cash (I have all of the key ones, thinking L Fogarty if named)?

    • HammerTime says:

      if youve got all the key rookies then hold Dow IMO. He will play a decent amount of games and get better each time he plays. I reckon he will score well tonight 😉

  14. KSinny says:

    Hibberd to Shaw or Ryan and Langdon to Fisher
    OR
    Hibberd to Simpson and Langdon to Ryan (WCE) ?

  15. Caleb says:

    I know cash generation is key.
    Do I hold Langdon or trade??
    I can swing garlett from mid to fwd n grab a midfielder or another fwd rookie.
    My rookies are brayshaw banfied kelly Holman Barry Garlett fritsch and Langdon obviously.
    Do I wait for Higgins or go someone on the bubble. Who am I missing?

    • Derek says:

      I have same problem. Only rookie I would consider is Ryan only because of the big jump in price he will get in the next 2 weeks because of his massive score last week.

      I usually would chance points like that, but Langdon could be out 4-5 weeks and with Higgins playing this week and on the bubble in 2 weeks need to have someone to trade.

      The only other issue is Langdon is a useful loophole this week for Fritsch. After this week GWS plays too early for him to be any use.

  16. Armonk says:

    Can bring any mid in for Crouch but not sure if I should mind my dollarydoos or get the players I know will be there come the end of season.

    Currently have Martin, Zerrett, Oliver, Fyfe, plus Crouch and rookies.

    Looking at Cheap (Conigs), Middle (Parker, Cripps, Selwood) or Uber (Danger, Titch).

    What do you all reckon. Save the money or splash out?

    • Nuggety says:

      Im in a very similar position. I'm leaning towards Oliver only because he's like for like and don't want to throw out my structure. But geez Cogs looks like a steal atm…..

      • Armonk says:

        If I grab Coniglio I can move Naughton up to Luke Ryan next week which if I get any of the others isn't possible. I think that might sway it for me.

    • Derek says:

      You will sleep better with Danger in your team. He is a lot of dollars though

  17. JJJ says:

    Have a bit of a pickle, no real "need" to trade, but I feel like i may miss the boat on some key cash cows. Have 222K in the bank, team as follows:
    Def: Laird, Hurley, Finlayson, Dodee, Murphy, Murray, naughton and Coffield who debuts this week
    Mid: Dusty, Titch, J Kelly, Fyfe, Parker, Congilio, T Kelly, Holman, Brayshaw, Banfield, LDU
    FWd: Billings, Walters, Dev smith, Sicily, Taberner, Jarrad Garlett, Fritsch, Stephenson,

    Everyone is playing, no one is losing money.

    But do I need to get for cash gen purposes: Bonner, Liam Ryan or Allen Christenses?
    I can go naughton or Coffield straight to Bonner
    I can Swing Sicily back and bring in Liam Ryan
    I can go Tabener down to Liam Ryan or Allen Christensen.

    I have made one trade, flipped Kreuzer for Nic Nat (largely because i thought i would need to upgrade tabener, then he dropped 100)

    Any advice?

    • Derek says:

      The cash is made by the cheap rookies.

      Bonnar, Christensen & Fisher are very expensive and will very quickly hit their ceiling. You then have to decide how long you keep them.

      They should score better than the cheap rookies, so if you are chacing points and you have the cash available instead of leaving it in your Danger-Bank, not a bad idea.

      I would wait for Higgins in a couple of weeks, Bailey and Wilson should play soon and make cash with those boys once the current cheap rookies have all hit their ceilings.

  18. neil demons delight says:

    Ellis and Sicily out 700k thank you now 2 options this is where my learned coaches come in
    1 martin and murphy Martin is overs and murphy though a cash cow wont be there shortly or
    2. Shaw and Fisher Shaw is way unders and has hit form and Fisher both a cash cow and great J S also this is better bye coverage. How many defensive cows do we need a good forward cow is crucial amid all the fwd crap . HARD NOT TO TAKE MARTIN but ZORKO in 2 weeks should ease it somewhat what do you guys think cheers fellas

  19. Tyruddanaut says:

    I am really considering Cam Ellis-Yolmen

    • Averaged 87, including a 97 last week against Richmond
    • Has an easy line-up before R7 when I am to trade him for Lance Franklin. This line-up consists of St. Kilda, Collingwood, Sydney, Suns, Carlton
    • Matt and Brad Crouch's injury means more midfield time for him
    • The only con is Fritsch gets fielded instead of Brayshaw

    Thoughts?

    • Sc_Wow says:

      wasting 2 trades bring him in and out, doesn't make sense

      • Tyruddanaut says:

        Mid priced cash cow

        • Sc_Wow says:

          You'd be trading brayshaw out for him? really think there will be much of a cash generation difference to justify that?

          • Tyruddanaut says:

            I’d be trading out Langdon for him.
            I mentioned Brayshaw because it means that with Garlett moving forward to make room, Brayshaw will have to be benched over TK and Holman.
            I might trade back Langdon later depending on my teams scoring and other factors

            • Sc_Wow says:

              I would never jump on a mid pricer, just leave Langdon or get another cheap rookie, one of the WC boys

              • Tyruddanaut says:

                I’ve decided against Ellis-Yolmen but am choosing Bonner instead. I think they will average similar and gain similar prices but getting in a defender fits my structures better. So much better

                • Sc_Wow says:

                  Again Bonner isn't another one I'd be chasing based off cash making purposes. I've started with him but wouldn't chase if I didn't have him. Trades are value you want to use them to get pros in, not upgrading to a mid priced cash cow if thats what you want to call it. Thats the last ill say on it though because you'll just ignore it anyways

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      I have decided against this.
      Even though it might generate me more cash, it won’t work for my future plans regarding rookies

  20. CJudd3Votes says:

    Anyone else heard Hurley could be in trouble?

    • Derek says:

      He only ran a few laps during the week at training. Has been named though

    • lachy says:

      He is playing. He did it heaps last year, they have him on a program every time just to ease his back pain.

  21. Scott says:

    Naughton > Murphy
    Dow > L.Fogarty

    Are these trades worth doing. Worried about the job security of both fogarty and murphy. But I have all the other rookies. Could possibly trade in Gowers via DPP instead, but then job security comes into play again.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Murphy has good security compared to a few, but I doubt Fogarty will play this week

      Do you have all of: TK, Holman, Garlett, Banfield, Finlayson, Barry, Ryan, Fritsch, English, Venables and Gowers?
      I would choose all of them over Fogarty

      • Scott says:

        Don't have the last 3. Ill definitely be trading Naughton to Murphy.
        Is Dow worth keeping? Or trade and try and grab some money from one of those last 3 rookies you mention

        • Tyruddanaut says:

          Dow probably isn’t. Very few of the top 10 are. I’d choose English before the rest

  22. Dave says:

    Who should I trade out for lambert?
    A) Devon smith
    B) Coniligo (already have Whitfield)
    C) bonner
    D) Walters
    Also feel free to suggest some others…
    Cheers

    • Dave says:

      I mean in btw

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      I’d have to go with Smith.
      He scores the same as Walters
      He will be a keeper unlike Bonner
      He will keep your forward line strong unlike Coniglio

  23. Saundo says:

    Trade Greene?

  24. Jose says:

    Is Luke Ryan a must have?

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      No.
      Defensive options this year vary from person to person and to claim a second year player as a keeper after two games is too presumptive

  25. Connor says:

    Dusty or Oliver??

    If I go Dusty I will have 8 premiums out for RD 14 Bye…

    • Sc_Wow says:

      do you have billings and savage?

    • Derek says:

      Go Oliver then.

      He will get heavy tag this week though.

      • Tyruddanaut says:

        Just saying, but there are 8 bench spots.
        You can have up to 12 players out for the bye rounds if you want

        • Connor says:

          It's the fact that there are 8 premiums out though – that's a lot of points

        • SC_Donkey says:

          Ideally you'd want 4 or 5 premos(keepers on each bye rounds) that's not playing. You have rookies and mid-pricer to consider during those 3 rounds too. Any more than that you'll be falling behind during bye rounds.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      How many in the midfield (for R14 bye)?
      If you have 1-3 in the Mid then Dusty, if more then Oliver

  26. Petracconaldo says:

    Hey guys
    Have my mind set on using my first 2 trades to replace Crouch and Lambert, but not sure whether to go for:
    A- Heeney and Martin (40k in bank)
    B- Westhoff/Walters and Macrae (170k in bank)
    C- Westhoff/Walters and Coniglio (300k in bank)

    Any other suggestions would be handy, thanks

    • Petracconaldo says:

      (Midfield consists of Mitchell, Kelly, Oliver, [Crouch], Brayshaw, TKelly and Holman)
      (Forward consists of Billings, McLean, Smith [Lambert], Stephenson and Fritch)

    • Sc_Wow says:

      the first, both of those are leaders in their positions

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Easily A)
      Dusty is a king who doesn’t get tagged, kicks well and plays hard. His inconsistency must be noted though.
      Heeney is an inside midfielder, might as well be free points for the forward line

      • Petracconaldo says:

        My heart lies with option A, but i was intrigued by Macrae. Is he a guy that i should get now or at the bye rounds?

    • SC_Donkey says:

      Option A is a solid pick. Looking at your mids and fwd Heeney and Dusty fits right in during bye. You only have Billings Rd 14, assuming you have Laird in the back. 4 premos Rd 14 bye is perfect

  27. Stupid Coach says:

    Great job with the Panic Room this week. I feel this is the place to be where I can get some good advice on which of the following trades I need to do this week to make the best possible start to the leagues that I am in. Here are my options:
    1) McGrath to Bonner and Townsend to Christensen – great cash generation just not sure about points generation.
    2) McGrath to Bonner and Zerett to Titch. Some cash generation but also points generation and captain option.
    3) Townsend to Christensen and Naughton to Bonner. Cash generation, McGrath stays but I don't get titch.

    Really need any help/ advice that anyone in the community is willing to give. Cheers

    • Sc_Wow says:

      None of those trades look good at all, double sideways on all 3 of them.
      If you really want to trade option 1 or 3 but have one of those players going down to a rookie and the other to a premo lock

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      I wouldn’t choose Christensen, he’s only had the one good game from two. Averaging 80. Not enough for his price
      I also wouldn’t trade Zerrett. You might want him back later when he finds his form. Especially if he finds it soon

      I would like to see your team, but from what you gave me, I would only trade Townsend.
      But to either:
      Fritsch, Ryan, English, Garlett in that order
      Or if you want that 250k player then Ellis Yolmen, Fisher and Bonner are looking good, hopefully you can get them with DPP

    • Derek says:

      If I really had to make a choice it would be #3.

    • GreendaleFC says:

      Dislike the first two options. For option 3), is there anyone else that you can get instead of Christensen? Do you have all the important rookies?

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      If you don't have titch then you'd have to have Danger and Dusty? If you don't then I wouldn't be worried about trading those peasants in your team that you mentioned. Focus on getting the must haves!

      • Stupid Coach says:

        Thank you one and all for your responses and advice – I have Danger but don't have Dusty or Titch. I think I have most of the rookies needed. My team:
        B: Laird, Savage, L Ryan, McGrath, Deedee, Finlayson, Murray, Naughton
        Mid: Danger, Kelly, Zorko, Merrett, Parker, Cogniglio, T Kelly, Holman, Brayshaw, Garlett (Carl), Barry.
        R: Gawn, Nank, Olongo
        F: Buddy, Smith, Petracca, Townsend, Liam Ryan, Fritsch, ZGL, Gowers.
        Really feel I need Dusty or titch.

  28. Tom says:

    Which set of trades are better?
    1. Mills – Ryan (via sicily) and Keeffe – Murphy

    or

    2. Mills – Curnow and ZGL – Ryan

  29. mO'meara Mo'problems says:

    Should I make O'Maera into Coniglio if it means trading Brayshaw down to Dom Barry (BE of -37) and keeping Zac Langdon, who I figure will come back into the team in a month and be a cow ready to cull, handily, after I've finished culling all the others.

    • Derek says:

      trade Langdon before Bradshaw. Can you? Or no DPP.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Yes? Is there anything else you can do? O’Meara should be held for a couple of weeks longer

    • mO'meara Mo'problems says:

      No DPP, and there's nothing else to do. Team's travelling really well at the moment. Just wondering whether it's worth making those trades to jump on Cogs at 450. JOM isn't looking like he'll increase significantly in value, and if Barry can hold his spot he could end up peaking at the same height of Brayshaw. Two trades to go from JOM the stepping stone (he was always intended to be one) to Cogs the potential keeper.

  30. Dean says:

    I have Rocky, Greene, Rayner and Naughton? What is priority?

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Just focus on perfect 9

    • Nuggety says:

      Definitely rayner. Then probably Rocky before Greene just..

    • TheGreatBozza says:

      Rocky
      Greene
      Rayner
      Naughton

      In that order – Rocky has been hopeless, Greene has injury cloud. Naughton lower price point so could have better cash gen than Rayner

  31. Rambo says:

    Ryan or Waterman as a forward rookie?

    Considering trading Naughton for Ryan/Waterman (via Keefe dpp) to create cash for an Armitage –> Coniglio upgrade.
    I'm 2k off having enough cash by trading Keefe directly to Ryan! 🙁

    Thoughts?

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Ryan

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Hold Armitage. He has a relatively low BE and you can trade him for 50k more in a few weeks. You should trade Keeffe too if he isn’t named

  32. Dimma says:

    I started with a lot of cash in the bank, so i can upgrade both menangola and M.Crouch into Dusty and Oliver with 68k leftover (swinging Garlett mid to fwd). Would i be better off bringing in another fwd for menangola instead of stacking my mids early?
    keepers before trade
    Def 2
    Mid 5
    Ruck 2
    Fwd 5 (Sicily missing 1 week)

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      If you could bring in another back man, that would be ideal

      • Dimma says:

        You're right, i can bring in Simpson which would bring a better balance to the side

    • Derek says:

      14 keepers in starting team is impressive. I only had 11.

      • KSinny says:

        I had 15 somehow

      • neil demons delight says:

        Is Sicily a keeper though and hard to have 5 on the FWDS are smith walters petracca maclean keepers

      • SC_Sixty6 says:

        In starting team I only had 12. But with Smith and McLean dominating that has grown to 14.

  33. BrownlowBoy says:

    Final call to Hibberd owners. I'm still undecided.

    What are we doing with him?

    • INPieman says:

      I'm making the decision over half a dozen Pints. Which spells trouble for Hibberd

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Trading. To Simpson to be precise.
      Using the money pocketed and done. Only 50k but it’s enough. It’s the difference between Marc Murphy and Dusty. (It’s a bit far out but you get the drift.)

    • Mike says:

      Traded him to Simmo

    • Dusty says:

      Hold. Frost back in will free him up. Gotta remember he was on track for a ton last week, just had a poor last quarter.
      Also scored 40+ points in the final quarter against Geelong getting plenty of the ball. I think the scoring potential is there.

    • Frankston Phil says:

      Trading to Murphy Murry on ground Hunter Clark to Oliver.

    • Mystic Mac says:

      Hibb to Simo

    • SC_Donkey says:

      He's back in my team, I'm liking his chance of turning it around. Lewis is playing up the ground and hopefully he'll stay there for most of the season. Lever and Hibbo will be the main man in the back half. Vince will be pushing from the HB to the guts.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I'm keeping him mainly because I have other problems like Crouch, Mills, Bont, Clark to name a few,so Hibbo is a long way back in the line,even if I didn't have other things to fix up I would keep him,he still has to be a top eight defender come years end,so why trade him,you might need that trade come finals time.

    • GreendaleFC says:

      I'm holding. I think he'll improve and finish in the top 8 this year. Also I don't hugely like Ryan, Simmo, or Heater.

      • SC_Sixty6 says:

        Your won't have the best of the best in Defence this year then Greendale. Settling for a flogging in overall.

    • Derek says:

      I am a “Future Hibbo Owner”

    • StevoRivo says:

      Hold. Trades are precious, and he will improve.

    • NoLanguage says:

      Hold

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Trade him to Simmo but only expect about 95-ish from Simmo tonite even though the ball will spend most of the night down there. I don't think Cripps will have a very good game tonite because I've heard whispers that Pendle will be tagging him at stoppages. Will probably keep him below 100.
      Grundy will monster Kreuzer and score over 150 is the best choice for VC.
      It will be interesting to see who wins

  34. Robert says:

    If you haven't made a trade yet is Naughton to Bonner a good option, even if Bonner will likely not make final team at end of the year?

    • INPieman says:

      Unlikely to be a top 6. So therefore you have to get him in & out. So that's 2 trades. Then downgrade a rookie for cash to go up. So you are actually using 3 trades most likely if you bring him in to turn him into a premo. You'd want a 200k price spike for that IMO. Not sure he can do that. But if you haven't used a trade & don't have any other issues he looks pretty good

      • Robert says:

        Fair points, I'm basically treating it like a rookie correction in my mind (so it's effectively the same number of trades).

        Just working out whether having $100k+ in my kitty as cash with small increases from Naughton is more beneficial than not much cash in the kitty but a player that should increase in price…

      • Defying_Madness says:

        Everyone seems to not be considering the points that Bonner could produce on field compared to Naughton. Worth it IMO
        Don't really want to have 50 odd scores on field.

      • pod says:

        I started with Bonner and hope he does make around $200k with the points along the way. He could quite possibly be an D6 by seasons end if Port keep going.

  35. POTS says:

    Posted yesterday re Hibberd OUT but reconsidering.
    Thinking now Brayshaw down to Liam Ryan (via Garlett) and Armitage up to Coniglio

  36. Gibbs says:

    Trade or Hold langdon? Not making any other trades this week

  37. Steve says:

    Lachie Fogarty or Lachie Murphy?

  38. Ben says:

    Is it worth trading Darcy Fogarty to someone like Waterman? Or just hold and hope he gets another game at some point. I already have Fritsch, Ryan and Garlett fwd rookies

    • Tiger says:

      I’m in the same boat. I’m holding until either he plays or another rookie surfaces.

  39. TheGreatBozza says:

    I was holding all week but now I've got an itchy finger. Naughton to Bonner worth it? I've used one trade this year and got $170K bank.

    I was all on board holding Naughton but i can see Bonner earning far more coin with a better score output

  40. Clark says:

    Is Mills – Curnow via sicily a worthwhile trade? Or should i just hold Mills until a premo drops in price?

    • Derek says:

      That’s my plan. Surely he won’t score another 40?………..,

      • Clark says:

        Yeah im leaning towards that Derek, but im also wary of how much Mills will drop,

  41. Holty says:

    Community. Please take a vote.
    Ryan or Shaw?

    • Sc_Wow says:

      For Hibb??

      • Holty says:

        For Menegola. Need to strengthen defense. Will bring in Fisher or Taranto and drop Naughton

        • Sc_Wow says:

          Still hard to pick the defenders I think, Hurley, Yeo, Laird should be up there. Fisher or Taranto will just be traded out again, think about it.

          • Holty says:

            Agree with Fisher and Taranto. Reason i may go Fisher for some money and if he can average 80 ill be happy with. If he can make 150k ill be happy with as the way Naughton is going i doubt he will make that

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Sicily! Or Greene! JETS!

    • The Ranger says:

      Ryan for mine. Going with the youngsters these days Holty.

  42. Greg says:

    Who to start, Garlett, Ryan or Venables, no loopholes unfortunately!

  43. Gord29 says:

    Crouch to Oliver or Cripps?

    • SC_Donkey says:

      Both good picks, depends on your bye structure. You don't want have too many premos(keepers) having the same bye.

  44. Lament326 says:

    Tom Cole has already played in previous seasons. Unless you mean to debut for season then yes that is possible. But he has already played multiple games fyi

  45. Banga says:

    Is Keeffe – Murphy worthwhile? Or should i leave Keeffe as a loophole until a rookie with better JS appears?

  46. Bill says:

    What to do?

    Trade ZGL to Barry via dpp this week

    or

    Trade ZGL to Higgins when he is on the bubble

    • Sc_Wow says:

      You'd LOSE $13,000 ZGL to Higgins on the bubble, doesn't sound like a great option to me. I'll be looking at cashing in on Higgins

  47. RougheadNSheSwallows says:

    G'day community, need help with a few calls here, do I: Ditch Naughton and jump on Bonnar?
    Ditch Hunter Clark and bring in Ryan?
    Ditch ZGL and bring in Ryan?
    Or not trade?
    Cheers community!

  48. SC_Donkey says:

    I have $219K stashed, wondering if I should spend it on Mihocek to Bonner or keep it for future upgrade. That cash would come in handy in couple of weeks time to get Kreuzer.

  49. Sc_Wow says:

    Your team sounds horrible, probably best to save yourself the headache and just reassess next year

  50. SC_Sixty6 says:

    I briefly saw you commented options to choose from but I couldn't get past the 3 players you mentioned that you actually started the season with. Yuck.

  51. Saalih631 says:

    267k and 29 trades.

    DEF: laird, hibberd, houli, doedee, murray, finlayson (o'shea, ballenden)
    MID: Martin, mitchell, kelly, fyfe, cripps, whitfield, kelly, holman (brayshaw, garlett, Brodie)
    RUC: Gawn, Naitanui (lavender)
    FWD: heeney, mclean, smith, higgins, ryan, fritsch (keeffe, rioli)

    I want to get my rookies right so im thinking either ballenden or keeffe to lachlan murphy and potentially the other one to either zac fisher or riley bonner (via finalyson and garlett dpp). thoughts?

  52. dontblushbaby says:

    Putting the VC on Fyfe , could go very large imo

    • KSinny says:

      Wondering whether I should VC Fyfe or Cripps

      • AuroraBorealis?! says:

        Collingwood dont tag so I'd be putting it on Cripps. Both viable options though.

    • NoLanguage says:

      Hope you stuck with Fyfe. Cripps struggled

      • WombatsFC says:

        Yeah Pendle has gone off the girls since the birth of his youngun ruined his usual stress-out area and he was trying to mount cripps at every stoppage and then running off playing hard to get. I reckon he might have got the end in a couple of times Patrick seemed a bit pink cheeked on occaision.

    • pod says:

      Not sold on Fyfe going very large, just large. The Suns are a better team now.

  53. Mitch says:

    https://ibb.co/noTAgc
    Any advice? Im inclined not to trade, i think ill hold hibberd hoping that he comes good.

  54. not SC_WOW says:

    Community…Big game tonight! Will anybody be able to stop the American Wreaking Machine?

  55. Dave says:

    Murray or Finlayson on field community?

    • GreendaleFC says:

      Finlayson easily

    • Derek says:

      A lot of people bringing Bonnar in this week will have to bench Murray. He should do ok tonight.

      Bonner a good selection for D3

  56. Fearthebeard says:

    Can I please get a few opinions on Brayshaw – Fisher?

    I know it's a bit of a side wards trade with Brayshaw having breakeven of -2. Though Fishers is -48 and with the fact that he is named as follower leads me to think he could quickly push 400k+. Earning far more then Brayshaw will. (Yes Brayshaw could have one big game and push his up) though it is also far more likely that Fisher will have a big game before Brayshaw off the bench?

    I have no real trades to force so it's just a move to make some quick cash while potentially giving me better scoring for now?

    Being stupid ? Some logic? Fisher worth the punt?

  57. Gareth Iggo says:

    Undecided on menengola…
    sideways trade to Robbie gray
    Or menegola to zac fisher and upgrade Brayshaw to conigilo.
    I still have 30 trades and my fwd line is currently:

    Devon Smith, heeney, Billings, Walters, menegola, Ryan.

    Thanks guys.

  58. SirSamuel016 says:

    Should I trade Sandilands for Nic Nat or hold him? Leaning towards holding him as I don't want to make a sideways trade or burn a trade I might need later, but at the same time I feel like Nic Nat could consistently do better?

  59. Andy says:

    What the hell is wrong with Greene?

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Hamstring injury.
      I think it’s just tightness though, nothing serious. Don’t take this as a true statement btw, I’m just going straight off my terrible memory

      • Lazza says:

        He trained fine yesterday … was running freely … only missing this week as a precaution … will be back R4… which is why I’m holding him …

    • pod says:

      There was a conversation on SEN today with the someone from GWS, said he's back in next week. It's a low grade hammy decided to rest him, not taking any chances at this stage of season.

  60. BrownlowBoy says:

    O'Connor dropped

  61. Tyruddanaut says:

    Final trades for this week:
    Langdon—> Bonner

    • Derek says:

      Will Bonnar be your D3 or D4?

      With Bonnar at D4, means you have to bench Murray. He should do ok tonight.

      • Tyruddanaut says:

        He is at D4 but Finlayson is in the midfield which means that Murray’s 91 half way through the 4th counts.

    • Defying_Madness says:

      I will be going Naughton to Bonner and Langdon to Ryan.
      Bonner will be my D3 and I will be loopholing Murray and Murphy for D6.

  62. Jim_bob321 says:

    First time this season Armitage has been named in the centre bounce due to Richardson's axing …… perhaps reverse the trade from Armo to Cogs???

  63. EasyMoneySniper says:

    Hey Squad,
    I need to bring a defensive rookie below about 140k, does anyone know if Ed Richards has decent job security, or should i just get Mirra or Mihocek and enjoy a defensive loophole until they get named?

    Good luck this week lads

  64. john says:

    Naughton to Bonner and Brayshaw to Barry? Need to trade brayshaw to have cash to upgrade naughton. Or just hold Naughton and hope he scores half ok from here on?

  65. Timothy says:

    I have two non-playing rookies in ZGL and O'Connor. Is it worth trading Langdon to Ryan this week if Ryan is the only Rookie that I've missed out on?

    • GreendaleFC says:

      I think it's worth it. ZGL should be a good downgrade target in about 4 weeks, and I'm not sure how many of those we will have. Ryan should be able to make a fair bit of money in the meantime with his 115 last week.

  66. Richie Porte says:

    Remember a few weeks ago when the majority of you experts recommended Veneables over Ryan. Well done

    • GreendaleFC says:

      It's been two weeks and small forwards aren't exactly known for their consistency. No one can predict the future

    • Fisherdann says:

      Venables is more of the midfield type.
      Ryan's first game produced a score of 38. He won't kick 3 goals every week.

    • Maverick_ says:

      How you looking for Le tour this year Richie?
      That was a gnarly stack last year.

    • Auradode says:

      Do your own research!

    • Derek says:

      Why would you bother to post a comment like that?

      • Richie Porte says:

        Sorry Derek, supercoach brings out the worst I’m me. I’ll try to be a better person going forward.

  67. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Holding Hibberd, Sicily to Fisher, Naughton to Bonner with 100k left in bank.

    • Defying_Madness says:

      I smell something burning

      • BlueBaggerJosh says:

        It's either that or Hibberd to Shaw and Naughton to Bonner whilst fielding Garlett for Sicily. I think the fisher option has more upside despite being riskier.

        • Defying_Madness says:

          Do you even need to make any trades? Bonner is definitely not worth 2 trades to get in

    • john says:

      solid trades buddy

  68. Fisherdann says:

    Langdon to Ryan and Naughton to Bonner
    OR
    Flog-cily to Ryan and Keefe to Simpson
    Leaves me with 27 trades but I've essentially upgraded the flog to Simpson before his price hike.
    What do you think fellas?

    • Fisherdann says:

      Option 2 also leaves me with keeping Langdon and seeing how Naughton goes for another week.

    • Defying_Madness says:

      I am going with option 1. Would recommend holding Sicily

  69. Crowboy94 says:

    What new rookie named this week should I go for? I already have the main ones and need to get rid of Clark?

    Thanks!

    • Derek says:

      Always wait until they are playing their 3rd game before getting rookies during season

    • Cpt says:

      Higgins – contested beast (Shop Early Crowboy)

    • RickyBobby says:

      Hold Clark this week as he's not playing and won't drop (can use him to loophole) then have a look at the likes of O'Connor and Higgins possibly even Coffield next week.

  70. Jeff says:

    Get Danger now in for Lambert or wait till he drops in price? He's the only one out of the three ultra uber premos that I don't have

  71. Cliffy says:

    In light of the recent news regarding Hibberd for his on-field positioning this round I will likely hold him and re-assess next round. Additionally, could use ZGL as EMG loophole between Fritsch and Ryan for this round. Other than that don't think I need to desperately make any changes, what do you reckon guys?

    DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Bonner, Doedee, Finlayson (Murray, Naughton)
    MID: Martin, Mitchell, Kelly (GWS), Fyfe, Coniglio, Brayshaw, Kelly(GEEL), Holman (Banfield, Garlett, Barry)
    RUCK: Martin, Gawn (King)
    FWD: Heeney, Billings, McLean, Smith, Christensen, ZGL (Fritsch, Ryan)

    $122k left over.

    Thanks

    • SC_Seer says:

      Great team mate. Hold tight save trades and shoot for the top!!! Alternative trade like a busted arse and shoot for the skies!!!! mmmm Beer.

  72. Daniel says:

    Is it worth trading Naughton to Bonner if I'm going to play him instead of Sam Murray each week or not?

  73. Michael says:

    Is ZGL – Ryan and Keeffe – Murphy good trades?

  75. SC_Donkey says:

    I see so many people trading without thinking about Rd 12, 13 and 14. Round 14 is the most awkward bye round, people needs to have an almost even spread of premos(keepers) during the 3 rounds of bye. Otherwise you'll have one round with less players(points) that will push you away from the pack.

    During the byes is when the sprint starts, if you haven't structured yourself for that. I'd starting thinking about it, before bringing any one in your team in the next few rounds.

    • INPieman says:

      Great advice Donk. I have refrained from bringing in certain players because of that. All trades from here must be made with the byes in mind

      • Russty_ says:

        Hey Pieman, is it that important though if you mainly play for leagues and not overall rank? cheers

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Current structure
      R10: 1 midpriced-cash cow DEF
      R12: 1 MID, 1 RUCK, 2 TOTAL
      R13: 2 MID, 1 DEF, 1 RUCK, 2 FWD, 6 TOTAL
      R14: 3 FWD (2 FWD/MID), 2 MID, 2 DEF. 7 TOTAL

      I’m not dreading the R14 bye since I can still field 22 using the magical powers of DPP,
      At the same time, I’m targeting another forward which means I’m fielding one short. I’m not targeting any other players, apart from potentially Marc Murphy, so I should be good to go

  76. Jeff says:

    Derek what are you doing with Mills, are you trading him or holding?

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Think he said he was holding and waiting for an underpriced premo

    • Derek says:

      I’m 100% holding Mills.

      I had another look st last weeks game, after quarter time he clearly had a defensive role in one of the Port smalls. He didn’t do a very good job, so they might give him the loose man role again.

      GWS and Bulldogd give up second and third most points to defenders (Collingwood first). Swans have them next two games. If he doesn’t score by then he is out.

      • jeff says:

        Thanks for the reply. I was unsure myself but now I think I'll hold, cheers

  77. EasyMoneySniper says:

    I believe Brody Mihocek is playing tonight… named on the interchange.

    • Derek says:

      And when did O’Shea sneak into the Carlton team

      Will that affect Simpson?

      • EasyMoneySniper says:

        Did not see O'Shea sneak in either, don't think he will affect simpson too much, however i feel as though he isn't as good as his first two games suggests, nonetheless still a good pick as i think he will be a top 8 defender at least.

    • INPieman says:

      He's not playing

      • EasyMoneySniper says:

        Just refreshed the website, must've been an error. Forgive me Community

  78. Steeeve says:

    Hibberd to bonner
    D fogarty to c Curnow.

    Thoughts???

  79. Michael says:

    I'm not sure whether my team is needing a trade… Currently haven't used one, is it time to use some trades? I have 79k leftover.

    DEF: Laird Hibberd Doedee Murray Finlayson Murphy (Sicily Naughton)
    MID: Dusty Titch Fyfe Bontempelli Parker Cripps Brayshaw Kelly (LDU Holman Banfield)
    RUCK: Gawn Nankervis (Olango)
    FWD: Heeney Billings Smith Petracca Ryan Fritsch (Langdon* Garlett)

    Thanks!

  80. hedski says:

    Thanks Kev, always enjoy your write ups.
    Well the SC Gods have smote (smited? Smitten?), taken a dump on me again this week, third week in a row, so my dreams of overall have vanished for another year unless the rest of the comp forget to set their teams for 4 weeks.
    But its good to get into the head to heads, got a few tough games against some good coaches this week, Trigga, Neil, Jambak and Damo good luck, you won't need it against me this week, got my 2 flogs on the pine, I'll hit back hard in the next couple of weeks, have a nice warchest stashed away.
    On a brighter note I welcomed a Little hedski into the world yesterday so life is great.
    Good luck for the round fellas. 👍🍺

  81. KSinny says:

    Last Call, Hold Hibberd or trade to Simmo?!?!?!

    • Petrus says:

      I'm holding personally. Don't think you can go wrong with the trade to Simpson, he's set for a big year.

  82. FearTheBeard says:

    Anyone ? No reply last time I wrote it…

    Can I please get a few opinions on Brayshaw – Fisher?

    I know it's a bit of a side wards trade with Brayshaw having breakeven of -2. Though Fishers is -48 and with the fact that he is named as follower leads me to think he could quickly push 400k+. Earning far more then Brayshaw will. (Yes Brayshaw could have one big game and push his up) though it is also far more likely that Fisher will have a big game before Brayshaw off the bench?

    I have no real trades to force so it's just a move to make some quick cash while potentially giving me better scoring for now?

    Being stupid ? Some logic? Fisher worth the punt?

    • INPieman says:

      I don't like it FTB. Leave Brayshaw to make some money. He showed in JLT he can pull off some scores. And they are playing away at home to GC

      • FearTheBeard says:

        Gday Pieman my old mate!

        Cheers for the thoughts

        I don't know why I've still got it locked in. Trying to convince myself to reverse it and save the trade though I just think Fisher is likely to earn more in 1 week then Bray does in 2…

        If he then has a big game in between I have a prime stepping stone for a keeper.

        Can't see Brayshaw being that

    • SC analysis pro says:

      I don't like it either Bearded One. I'll back Brayshaw to make more.coin than Fisher, even if he doesn't it won't be by enough to justify a trade.
      Fisher is no keeper either

      • FearTheBeard says:

        Thanks for the thoughts. I get the logic of the trade being burnt. Though it could save me more on culling/quicker to get premium?

  83. Nick says:

    No loophole this week – wanted to take. Punt with Gawn but I’m unsure. Otherwise options are Titcj and Dusty. Leaning towards one of the boys in the head to head, bur which one?!

  84. Banksy says:

    Is murphy worth bringing in? Got Keeffe who i have been using to loophole rookie defenders so could trade in Murphy for him. But would mean i lose the loop between Keeffe and sicily. Thoughts please guys i'm new

    • Petrus says:

      Cash cows more important at this time of the year then points. But I would hold off on the trade. The DPP may be pivotal if any injuries come your way.

    • Gibbo says:

      Okay josh

  85. Holty says:

    2nd year player Fisher. Doubt he will average above 85 but will make u quick money which is why im grabbing him. Havent seen Brayshaw play so cant comment

    • Tiger says:

      Think he’ll average around the mid 70s which is still a big jump up from last year. I’m happy go have him. Fisher will make some good coin 💰

  86. Vinny says:

    whose starting/ed garlett?

    • BlueBaggerJosh says:

      Loopholing him and ryan

    • redherringfc says:

      Starting him. I thought about loopholing him, but my only loophole option is Keeffe and I’ve put the v on kreuzer. It seems this way I get more options.

      I’ll trust him in and then hopefully get the best result out of Fritsch or (don’t expect 115 every week) Ryan.

  87. Liam says:

    Should I trade O’Connor to Ryan. Haven’t used a trade yet

    Cheers

  88. Post_MaSloane says:

    Panic! Still have no idea if I want to trade Duncan to Oliver :/

    • Vinny says:

      If it helps I've regrettably traded Crouch for Oilver. In my opinion, I think Ben Jacobs will head towards Oliver. How does he go with a tag is the question.

      • Post_MaSloane says:

        Yeah, think I'm just going to cop the donut. If I could afford dusty or Mitchell I'd pull the trigger but since I can't think I'll just stick fat

        • BrownlowBoy says:

          You don't have a playing bench rookie?

          • Post_MaSloane says:

            Nah I do, sorry just meant a donut from Duncan not for my team
            Bringing Banfield/garlett onfield through loophole

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Clarry scored 170 last time the Dees played North,not sure if Jacobs was playing though.

      • StasGenuius says:

        Last time he was tagged in a real game he got reported for diving. when tagged in JLT he had 5 FA and scored at less than 1.0ppm

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          He still scored 113 in the game against WC and he's tipped to score 115 this weekend.

          • CleverRectum says:

            what's his breakeven?

            • JohnDJ59 says:

              91,can't see him going up or down much in price,I like him for his consistent scoring,only four scores under 100 last year,80 being the lowest,you can usually trust him to score in the 100 – 120 range most weeks.

              • CleverRectum says:

                Thanks John so he wont go up much this week. I can wait until next week and use the cash from the Dorko>Cogs Hibberd>Simmo correction to go Bont>Danger Steven>Oliver, if Steven goes 90+ this week

                • JohnDJ59 says:

                  Sounds like a plan,hope you allowed for the drop in Bont's price with his BE.of 175,looking to drop around 30k.

                  • CleverRectum says:

                    Planned for a 42k drop from the Bont. I don't think that he'll pass 85 against the Bombers. He doesn't like it rough and dirty and the bombers do dirty better than anybody

  89. Sc_Wow says:

    Will cox get a mark tonight?

    • SC_Donkey says:

      Probably not😓 on 0 atm. Still have him in my team. Waiting to offload him for Kreuzer.

      • Sc_Wow says:

        Kruse getting destroyed too

        • SC_Donkey says:

          Licking my lips, he'll be real cheap in couple of weeks. He's still not right he looks awkward jumping for the ball.

        • Defying_Madness says:

          Looks like trading him out was the right call for now

          • RulesBitch says:

            SC rule #1 subsection 3a. If a ruck misses due to injury in the first 5 rounds he must be traded out.

    • SC_Donkey says:

      Played a little bit better. His handballs are killing me, kick the bloody ball ffs.

  90. Defying_Madness says:

    Murray is a gun

  91. JugHead says:

    Lol…..sidebottom on 16 possies at 1/4 time for 26pts. Projecting that logic forward he gets 60 plus possies for the game and just manages to raise the bat.

  92. Fearthebeard says:

    Why did I hold Kruez ffs

    • Bucks says:

      Get on Grundy

    • Derek says:

      He isn’t 100%I

    • Holty says:

      He is struggling with his injury.a fit Kruez would normally beat Grundy

      • Shake_n_Bake_ says:

        Maybe he is still not 100% but as a ruckman or around the ground im 1 that thinks Grundy is now better than Kruez.

    • SC_Donkey says:

      He'll get at least 80 it's not a bad score. But nice for the vultures like me looking to bring him in couple of weeks.

  93. JeanPratt says:

    Crikey that Bolton bloke is a worse gameday coach than that malthouse bloke was when he coached carlton

    Fyfe, Dusty or Titch/

  95. TommyC99 says:

    Kruez getting monstered 🙁

    • RulesBitch says:

      Anybody who believed that mis-functioning groins weren't an issue in afl and kept him deserves the lesson

    • Derek says:

      Kruse finish better than Grundy. He looked ok and got better as game went. Might be a good bye in a few weeks time

      • RulesBitchybutHot says:

        Really? I reckon a finish of 157 is a lot better than a finish of 86.

  96. Sc_Wow says:

    Anybody wanting to know if you should trade Hibbo to Simmo my advice is yes. Remember you heard it from me first because I posted this at 5:00pm but for some reason it was delayed.

    • RulesBitch says:

      Trollish but humorous

    • wow-wee says:

    • DavidSA says:

      Can thank the AFL for diluting the teams by adding 2 new teams. That and the free agency conundrum
      Carlton
      Brisbane
      Gold Coast are stuck in the bottom 6 because of it

  99. Sc_CaualtyDept says:

    PADDY DOW-tful the burns will ever heal

    • Youtube says:

      Dow has a bit of poise about him. His best game to date. I think he will be a player.
      Murray IS a player.

      • Tyruddanaut says:

        Dow just isn’t performing well. I’m hoping he gets dropped. We have better players in the twos

  100. JohnDJ59 says:

    Why have Simpson when you can have Murray,both on 72 pts at the end of the 3rd QRT.

  101. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Murray on bench, Bonner better smash it tomorrow

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Hope you didn't make those 2 trades because if so they are looking like huge wastes

    • Derek says:

      Bonnar good trade if he is your D3. As a D4 Murray gets shoved to the bench.

      Most people won’t have made the Bonnar trade yet, but many now thinking might not need to.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Very well said Derek,no need for him as a D4 if you have Doedee, Murray & Finlayson, which most teams should have.

  102. FarmerJohn says:

    Q.
    What's the difference between Carlton and Cow Pooh?

  103. Steeeve says:

    Cripps pinged for a couple of soft frees late, if not would be tonning up again.
    Sorry to C Curnow owners, i brought him in so that explains the average night he's having

    • DavidSA says:

      Long as he does not have those -70 dips
      80-90 lows are is fine even if it's every 4th week

  104. BrownlowBoy says:

    Fisher gets the cheapest junk time goal. His owners will be happy.

    • DavidSA says:

      Fisher will be making cash till round 6 now at the very least. Good time for a chop too anyway if he makes 100-120k

      • BlueBaggerJosh says:

        Went off after a knock to the head, could've scored even better, I'm happy considering

        • Sc_Wow says:

          He was off for all of 5 minuets. He got lucky with the FF and goal at the end. He’s not sc relevant

      • Wombaaat says:

        Hopefully trade down to a dominating DPP higgins and turn Ryan into a F4 keeper

    • Derek says:

      because everyone had been talking about him I watched him tonight, he goes alright.

      Spends a lot of time around the ball. Picked the ball up nice a few times. He will get plenty of 80-90’s this year.

      • Wombaat says:

        Yep that's ruined him for next week, last week you started spruiking SPS and he backed out his responsive score tonite.
        You must be the unluckiest bloke in the history of supercoach

        • Derek says:

          I’m mustn’t have done much of a job talking up SPS, couldn’t even talk myself into him.

          Did you get Fisher?

  105. Steeeve says:

    Aaand Curnow slots a goal late, gets 2 points. Ffs

  106. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Simpson-good enough, Murray-awesome but on the bench, Cripps- Meh, Fisher-Alright. Take Garletts score or take a punt on Ryan, thinking of playing it safe.

    • Tiger says:

      I’m taking Garlett score

    • johnno2908 says:

      Simpson 97 with only 1 kick in and he didn’t kick it to himself. Very serviceable. Collingwood only kicked 4 behinds for the match which is definitely not going to happen every week. Lock for top 3 defenders for mine.

  107. Locked and Loaded says:

    Was locked on two trades all week Crouch -> Parker and Naughton -> Bonner.
    After Murray’s score tonight really tempting to bring in a non playing defender to get Murray’s emergency score!
    What to do???

    • Derek says:

      Bonnar needs to be at D3

      • Wombaaaaat says:

        Unless you want a decent score.
        Cmon Derek use a different name when you're smashed

        • Derek says:

          If you have Diedee, Finlayson and Murray at D4, D5 and D6, most have Laird and one other premium at D1 and D2, so the only spot left is D3.

          It’s pretty sound logic

          • Locked and Loaded says:

            Yeah I have the others mate and thinking along he same lines as you it’ll leave me with Laird, Hurls, Savage, Bonner, Doedee, Finlayson as starting 6

  108. Rick Grimes says:

    Used Mirra to loophole Murray..Will be sweating final teams.

    • Locked and Loaded says:

      Thinking of trading Mirra in to do the same thing for Naughton

    • Karma says:

      Do it do it do it do it do it do it do it

      • Locked and Loaded says:

        Lolll issue is if I bring in bonner for naughton as originally planned will leave be better off in the long run and he could match Murray’s score! Love the encouragement though 🙌🏼

  109. Northerner says:

    How the hell did Fisher get 76 pts? He did nothing tonight. After watching the game I thought he was 50-60 area. Maybe he’s one of those that just has a SC game.

    • Wombaaat says:

      His metres gained are usually pretty high and he gets a few score involvements tonite he also had 6 tackles and 8 of his possessions were contested

  110. Willymack1234 says:

    What to do with Tobias? really don't want to field 3 rookies up fwd

    • SC_Kev7 says:

      Not ideal. I assume those 2 or even all 3 rooks are small fwds as well. Take the hit this week, Greene was fantastic in the 1 game he has played so far. Prey he is back next week

  111. TommyC99 says:

    WHIch 2 to field out of Fritsch, Ryan and Garlett’s 64

  112. Stivlington says:

    Dahlhaus – I think picking him was a mistake. He’s looked terrible in a terrible side.

    Sideways trade? I already have Heeney, Billings, Walters, and D Smith.

    I’m considering Petracca. I like R Gray but he had chemo so I’m not sure if he’ll be 100%. I can’t afford Buddy. Thoughts?

    • Tiger says:

      I’ll be aiming for gray

    • house says:

      Dahl will come good when gets more mid time

      • David C says:

        He won't get more mid time.

        • pod says:

          I didn't know you are part of the Dogs coaching squad, can you give us some more insight?

        • Josh says:

          Someone's gotta replace libba in the middle, Dahl will likely get more midfield minutes

    • Northerner says:

      I do think we do have a surprising data point from first two rounds that puts Dogs in frame for bottom 4. Does put a cloud over him that may justify a corrective trade.

    • You are an ignoramous. Gray is fine like Roughy.
      Don’t pick him and suffer. Oh, he only scored 111 last week!!!!!

      • Stivlingtons says:

        Righteo nuffie.

        Roughead admitted his treatment had negative affects during the season. He didn’t score as well as previous seasons.

        Also, Roughead had immunotherapy not chemotherapy so I’d be careful who you call an ignoramus.

  113. Dayne says:

    Worth going O’Meara (41 be) to Bonner (-44 be) via dpp to make a bit of coin?

    • Northerner says:

      You’d be better going straight to a cheap rookie you don’t have, such as LFogarty or Barry if you don’t have them. Creates much more cash

  114. Luke says:

    Who do we think has the better js out of Waterman and Venables? Leaning towards Venables with JJK still to return although Waterman’s output has been considerably better.

    • Northerner says:

      Venables has excellent JS. Waterman likely to be out next week for JJK

  115. Stupid Coach says:

    Thoughts on trading Townsend to Parfitt (Geel) – ave 98 and only $265k. Could be a nice POD or is it a trap and should I just bring Waterman in instead (already have L Ryan, Fritsch, ZGL and Gowers.

    Is it worth trading Naughton to a non playing rookie to get Murray's score or back Doedee and Finlayson to score more than Murray.

    Also, thoughts on VC – Gawn or Laird.

    • Northerner says:

      I can’t see Waterman lasting once JJK returns and they are talking him up as being set for the Suns next week. This week’s price rise for son of muddy may be his only rise.

      Parfitt hasn’t shown enough yet for mine. I’m interested to see what impact Scooter has on roles and scoring at the cats. Too much uncertainty for mine. You’d be better going Christensen at that price.

      • Stupid Coach says:

        Thanks Northerner. Parfitt has a better BE score (-20 compared to -8) than Christensen and projected to increase by 95k over the next 3 rounds which will take him to 400k and I can upgrade him. Also playing in a better team. I am concerned about impact from Scooter but just need to offload Townsend and think he might be the best option.

  116. TheGreatBozza says:

    Grundy was an absolute beast. Wish I had the balls to pick him. If he keeps up playing 80-90% ruck like last night he could easily be the number one ruck

    • pod says:

      Looks the goods Bozza. Kreuz is still not 100% so not entirely convinced Grundy is #1

    • Bunty says:

      Since I had Gawn selected early I didn’t want to have both rucks out due to the bye. However zNank going ok and he was cheaper. Will reassess at bye time.

  117. Harry says:

    Fyfe Captain boys after a fail VC Cripps
    Have feeling Dusty and Titch won't be at their best due to tags
    What does the community think?

    • Gander farm says:

      You mustn’t have Danger – yet! I’m not going Dusty nor Titch either although I’d be surprised if the latter didn’t fire once again.
      I’m Fyfeing into Danger.

      • Harry says:

        Mate just provide a sufficient opinion to the question i don't care who u got in or who u didn't get geez get a life.

        • Gander farm says:

          Poor Harry, who takes SC far too seriously.
          Titch will score similarly to Fyfe, happy now.

        • TommyC99 says:

          You’re being a goose, calm down. You asked for people’s opinion and he gave it to ya. And since it doesn’t align with your thoughts, you don’t like it. Don’t ask for people’s opinions if ya not gonna like their answer

  118. DavidSA says:

    Ben Simmons and Lebron putting on a show and the scores are close early in the last.
    Simmons records his 12th triple double of the season.

  119. Jim says:

    JOM, trade to Bonner or hold?

  120. What_Bear says:

    Hi Guys,

    Had planned to trade O'Connor and Naughton out this week, but Murrays score had made me reconsider. I am thinking trading Naughton to Murphy now and keeping O'Connor, to get Murrays score. Is this smart? or should I chase cash?

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      It’s worth it.
      You get the extra 64k from the trade and gain 30k more from cash gen
      And you save a trade

      • What_Bear says:

        Yep. Thanks for the advice. Pays to not trade early. I would have missed Murrays score if I pulled the trigger on Thursday or Friday

  121. Saundo says:

    Oliver or Parker?

  122. Michael says:

    Hey guys, thoughts on trading Naughton and Giles-Langdon to Bonner and Mirra? I know Mirra isn't named yet but I am sure he will get games this year and he will allow me to get Bonner in via Sicily's DPP.

    Thanks!

    • Derek says:

      Not sure about Mirra getting games.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Don’t jump the gun, it’s not worth it

      • Michael says:

        Cheers, Tyruddanaut. Do you think it is better to hold my trades, and not trade out either?

        My team is currently:
        DEF: Laird Hibberd Doedee Murray Finlayson Murphy (Sicily Naughton)
        MID: Dusty Titch Fyfe Bontempelli Parker Cripps Brayshaw Kelly (LDU Holman Banfield)
        RUCK: Gawn Nankervis (Olango)
        FWD: Heeney Billings Smith Petracca Ryan Fritsch (Langdon* Garlett)

  123. Rob says:

    Hi community, need some very last minute help deciding between these two trades
    1. Naughton to Murphy
    2. O'Meara to Bonner (trade Naughton later)

  124. Defying_Madness says:

    It's kind of funny since I knew bonner was a trap and I still chose him anyway.

    • BVB21 says:

      Bonner and Fisher are traps.

      People can’t say they weren’t warned

      • Defying_Madness says:

        It was either that or field Murphy or Naughton so whatever. If he can manager a 70 I will be fine

        • BlueBaggerJosh says:

          You were advocating against him so much I thought you would avoid him lol, fisher is looking alright compared to how Bonner is doing. Still a half to go, here's hoping he scrapes a 70

    • johnno2908 says:

      Yeah I talked myself out of the Brayshaw to Bonner trade mid week… then 30 seconds before the game traded him in. Not overly happy, but Brayshaw looking like 💩 making me feel a little better

  125. Whitey says:

    Bonner's bad result this week will be because of all you people who jumped on him…or he just not that good.

  126. Tyruddanaut says:

    Zorko is an absolute spud!!!!!!!!!

  127. Daren Gasper says:

    I have all the rookies except Liam Ryan is he a must have happy with team only player I’m. It happy is JOM ?
    Worry on his is he consistency maybe CEY might be a better option?

    • SC_Kev7 says:

      Just sit tight, Daren. Ryan will be all over the shop scoring wise, but he will get a nice cash bump if you need it. I worry about CEY's body and isn't much of an upgrade on JOM anyway

  128. BVB21 says:

    Oliver on 9 and Fritsch on 4 at quarter time. Ouch’

    • Holty says:

      Oliver was always going to have a tough match with Jacobs running with him. I hope he scraps an 80. That would be a fair score against Jacobs

  129. DavidSA says:

    Omg what are Port doing!
    It's clear Rockliff is underdone
    Drop him and put Gray in the middle plz!

  130. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Thats what she Saad is your team, isn't it Sc_Wow? Must be pleased with Big Stef, he's killing it!

  131. Holty says:

    I really do hope noone in the community traded out Martin based on last weeks performance. Remember, most rucks will struggle against Gawn.

  132. cashcows says:

    Don't suppose there's a good non-playing rookie I can bring in to grab Murray's Emergency score?

    • SC_Kev7 says:

      Tom Cole from West Coast has been named for the past two rounds on an extended bench, can't be too far away. It's a risky move though

    • redherringfc says:

      Keeffe. Be quick.

  133. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Looks like Hibberd needs to be traded too, I might just run out of trades before getting past the byes

  134. SC_Donkey says:

    I should've benched Oliver(E) i knew he was gonna struggle.

    • Defying_Madness says:

      I wonder if anyone did

      • Derek says:

        I seriously though about it, with E just in case. We knew this was going to happen

        • SC_Donkey says:

          I was really thinking about it since O'Connor was dropped. But then i thought Oliver wasn't gonna do that bad and Jacobs might leave him alone and tag somone else in 3qtr time. Hopefully he does at 4qtr time and Oliver can get some junk time.

      • SC_Donkey says:

        If someone did, would be a very wise move.

    • Captain Risky says:

      I am hoping he throws in a crap score so I can bring him in cheap.

    • Osca says:

      No one would had the guts to do it. Talk is cheap.
      Jacobs will do that to several stars again this year. Haven’t got Oliver but have Danger, Titch, Dusty, Fyfe and Parker so he will do a job on them too. Simply don’t VC them when they play NM.

  135. Russty_ says:

    Time to Panic!..gonna be some spudly scores this week, I have Bonner, Clarry and Christensen..ouch.

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Bonner is on 70!!!!
      Junk time please save us

      • Russty_ says:

        That's not terrible, been getting a few touches in the last, hopefully 5 more!

  136. Russty_ says:

    Oh jeez!…Christensen had em dead to rights and he kicks it like a girl's blouse, would've been a 30 point play I reckon.

  137. KSinny says:

    Last minute captain change to Fyfe?

  138. Russty_ says:

    Fyfe's absolutely killing it…12 minutes in, well done if you VC'd him.

  139. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Fyfe has come to life!! 49 SC at quarter time. Noice!!

    • Russty_ says:

      Very Nooooice indeedly!…:), especially if you VC'd him.

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Yeah, be nice to nail a VC after not getting it quite done in the first two rounds. I so would like Olango to get a run tonight. LOL

    • Baggy Pants says:

      Feel sorry for the ones who traded him out after round 1.

  140. TommyC99 says:

    What score should we be taking from Fyfe in order to not go with Danger/Titch Captain?

    • Baggy Pants says:

      Im taking 130 plus not going to be greedy.

    • Derek says:

      139

    • Russty_ says:

      Maybe 150 at this point.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      140+ will do the trick for me.If he can score around that mark and Danger or Titch are good enough to beat that, well then thats fine. Not gonna be over greedy. Been stung in arrse too many times. However, being 85SC at half time, I will be disappointed if he cannot crack the 150+ from here.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      The way Titch and Danger go about it,probably 145,my usual VC cut off score is 130+

  141. Kanga says:

    I have had Bonner from the start and ‘didn’t jump on him’. He finished 2017 well and did ok in the practice games so based on that I grabbed him cheaply which gave me the money to have six VG mids.
    He will be ok. Make some cash and trade him off come his bye.
    I don’t do everything right but not preturbed as he is in a VG team who will win many games.

    • Russty_ says:

      Me too Kanga…not concerned with him not getting a ton every week.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      As long as you started with him, there is nothing to worry about. If you used a trade to get him last week or this week, you would have cause for concern. I am just going to let him go up until his BE exceeds his average and move him on for hopefully a tidy profit. (Which should be before his round 10 bye)

    • Whitey says:

      I didn't see the game, he had a few possessions and 10 marks. Was his DE down?

    • StKilledme says:

      If you'd spent 46k more you could have got seedsman with DPP

  142. TommyC99 says:

    Brayshaw doesn't even look like getting near the footy

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Low TOG as well

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Brayshaw is struggling out there. He is on my bench and if he cant break the shackles he and Naughton's heads are on the chopping block. I havent used any trades yet, but going into round 4, barring any major injury dramas, the axe will likely fall on these two overpriced and underachieving rooks.

  143. Keenbutclueless says:

    I have the Flog Sicily in defence. He may well be giving me his most benefit in loopholing Murray’s score and wearing the C to get Fyfe’s VC.

    • Russty_ says:

      Sounds like enough value to have hung onto him this week Keen, he'll be back and looking to redeem himself next week.
      I was gonna trade him out, but circumstances prevented me this week, so I held.

  144. Crowboy94 says:

    Why is there so many crap rookies this year. Get taken high in the draft and they all look like crap!

  145. Defying_Madness says:

    Ryan was on 60 at half time and hasn't scored since. Is he hurt? He has the band aid icon on FF

  146. JugHead says:

    Hanley injured………what a surprise……….they should name a hospital after him

    • Russty_ says:

      Yeah poor guy, might be time for him to call it a day.

    • Fella says:

      Ha. Feel sorry for him but Jughead – I got a laugh from your throw away line.

  147. Hawks says:

    Do I take Gawns 117 SC points as C, or try to go bigger with Titch or Dusty, and if so which one?

  148. Russty_ says:

    Brayshaw to Higgins in a few weeks sounds good if Higgins doesn't turn out to be a dud.

  149. Jack says:

    If your R1 was going okay (let's say Goldy, Kreuzer or Jacobs) and you are convinced Brodie Grundy will be top2 ruck.(along with Gawn, who you already have)
    Is it worth sideways trading your okay R1 for Grundy?
    Haven't used a trade yet, incase anyone wondering
    Loving the podcast so far Lek & Patch, but any chance we could have Jock as a special guest this week for 5 minutes to talk about the rucks? Jock had a very good eye for 'the big bastards'

    • Derek says:

      It’s a long season. Hold now and see what happens injury wise

    • SC_Donkey says:

      What Derek said and Have a look at Stefan Martin poor score last week and a huge one this week. Rucks don't play the same team every week. Imo Top 2 Ruck for me is Kreuzer and Gawn, shame Kreuzer is carrying an injury wait in a couple of weeks he'll be right.

    • Wombaaaat says:

      Great ask Jack I was wondering the same thing and decided to wait until the byes and adjust my rucks then if I need to

  150. hedski says:

    Looks like I've lost 30-40 points fielding Brayshaw over Banfield but happy to take Fyfes VC, well done Toby Flog you're my captain.
    Now Siciflog you can do some good work too and loop Murphy and the DreadNaught.

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Big plums required to go the double flog!

      • Russty_ says:

        Haha

      • hedski says:

        I reckon they'll be good picks Smokey, just gotta hold my nerve, only 3 rounds in.

        • Russty_ says:

          Hey Hedski, I was hellbent on getting rid of Siciflog this week, but when Darcy Fogarty was dropped I had to punt him for Liam Ryan or I would've missed out on a shitload of cash, so Sicily went to the pine.
          Thinking now I'll give him another chance, and hope he doesn't shove his fist up someone's nose or something next week lol

        • Whatyasmokin says:

          Sicily has big scoring potential and Greene is a proven top forward. Just hope they don't cost another game each at some point then you're looking at a poor total season output.

  151. Multi_ says:

    Thank you VC Fyfe still laughing about all those coaches that traded him out. Poor bastards

  152. JohnDJ59 says:

    Think I will be doing a double trade next week,Brayshaw and Clark need to be out of my side,only problem is who to replace them with.

  153. DavidSA says:

    David Mundy quietly chugging along as a top 6 forward maybe top 8 at the least

    • Derek says:

      Walters looked ok

      It was only the suns

      • Russty_ says:

        The Suns are better this year though, Stewy has made a difference, Freo were pretty bad last year.
        Losing Hall and not having Barlow doesn't help.

  154. Defying_Madness says:

    Take Fritsch' score or take the punt on Venables?

  155. Rick Grimes says:

    Fyfe = life.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Yep. Olango just been put on the paddock. With a big C above his head.

    • Kyle says:

      It may only be round 3 but going neale over fyfe isnt looking fantastic atm

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      Olango gets his first captain's armband this week.

  156. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Andrew Brayshaw has the honour of being involved in my first trade for the 2018 season. Going into this match with a BE of -3, he produces a score of 32 SC. After 3 rounds with a combined 152 SC points total, and now increasing fark all in price, he has been condemned to the scrapheap. YOU'RE FIRED.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Will be doing the same,just need another rookie to put their hand up,since I have most of the good ones.

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Likewise. Perhaps Crowden, Higgins…..will worry about that next week.

    • CheekyNandos7 says:

      He will be my third for the year. Probably him to Higgins

      • redherringfc says:

        Haven’t checked his ownership numbers, but Higgins is a genuine POD.

        Anyone who has played this game for more than 3 years knows he is Burn Man King.

        Do you already own Waite?

  157. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Holy Cow! I do not have Coniglio…..Not for long. That bloke is starting to turn into a SC monster. 62 SC at the 7 minute mark of the 2nd quarter. That's seriously good.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Had him hoping he would end up being my M8 at the end,I love it when a plan comes together.

    • hedski says:

      Got him in for Crouch this week TH and pocketed a fistfull.

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Looks like he is eating Kelly's points as well which is frustrating

      • SC_Donkey says:

        Kelly never plays well againts the Swans and his score of 90 tonight is equal highest score againts Sydney.

    • Derek says:

      The swans gave him no attention early and he did what he liked.

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Coniglio the only obvious underpriced midfielder this season in my books, although i guess the fear of him only becoming a 500-550k player scared people away. I reckon he has the talent to be top 15 (possibly top 10) so a bargain!

    • johnno2908 says:

      I had him to be my bloke to upgrade to Danger. He is making it a tough decision with a low score of 120!

  158. PeteB says:

    Haha did anyone seriously dump Fyfe. Surely not !

  159. Rick Grimes says:

    Coffield looking like a great down grade option. Getting plenty and looks composed.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I'm with you there Rick,might solve part of my Brayshaw/Clark problem.

  160. Defying_Madness says:

    Should have just went Lobb to Curnow. Looks like he's injured and done stuff all

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Not sure how to get rid of him now as well.

    • Derek says:

      Unlucky. Injured knee in 1st quarter. Was on 37 at time. Came back in and played at full forward and finished with 59

      Injury might keep him out for a few weeks

      • Defying_Madness says:

        Yeah I only have 50k in the bank so not many options. Didn't see the injury but if he was off to a great start that sucks. Might be forced to go down to a rookie.

      • Claire says:

        Derek, you are so ‘on the ball’.

      • Wombaaat says:

        But he only got 58 the week before without an injury. silly starting team selection for the 2% that have learned a lesson early. Don't roll the dice with 400k on a big bloke under an injury cloud

  161. Steeeve says:

    Two weeks time I'm moving a def/mid rookie to the guts and turning Brayshaw into Coffield. Lad looks made for AFL.

  162. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Parker is doing sweet FA. Straight switch to Cogs is on the cards next week.

    • Russty_ says:

      Was thinking the same thing about Shitfield…wtf happened to him tonight?

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      And now Billings is also turning into a liability. Seriously, you can not make this scheit up! Its trade time.

      • Russty_ says:

        I hate the Saints so much right now!…want them all gone from my SC Team, and my life.

        • hedski says:

          Picked 2 saints Russty, Billings is annoying me, the other ones rolling along nicely.

    • Asproman says:

      So he has had a bad night like we all do. Still very SC relevant.

      • Russty_ says:

        No , when the Saints go missing, which will be often, So will Billings or Savage, or someone else you're depending on in that side to deliver. Gator's right…get all Saints out of your side before it's too late!

  163. JohnDJ59 says:

    That feeling you get when your F1 is on a lower score than the two rookies on the bench,I'm looking at you Billings.

    • Russty_ says:

      The feeling you have when you barrack for the worst team in the world!…might start going for the Dees John, and yes i had Billings too, the Saints are a complete write off this year, no talent, no stars, it's a miracle we beat Brisbane week 1.
      Gator was absolutely right, don't have any Saints in your Supercoach teams.

      • Mastro says:

        Everyone will beat Brisbane!

        • Matt says:

          Harsh, they've been competitive every week so far

        • Russty_ says:

          They would've beaten Port, if Christensen didn't kick like a girl, and Port beat Sydney Swans last week.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Hey Russty,I know exactly what you are going through,being a Dees supporter,I went to some dark places and we are just starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel,before that it was a steam train coming to run us over.Thank God Roosy decided he wanted to coach us or we might still be struggling.I might slowly be getting the team I had before I changed it at the last minute before round one.Oliver came back this week,not good timing,Buddy will come in for Billings,then I just have to get Danger in round six.

        • Russty_ says:

          Hi John, just don't see any hope for us…it's been all downhill since we blew our chance in 2009/2010, seriously contemplating not barracking for a team at all or switching, Saints are a lost cause.

          • JohnDJ59 says:

            I know where you are coming from Russty,you really should have won one of those,not sure which was worse,the toe poke by Geelong or that bounce against Collingwood plus you scored 9.14 in both those games.I don't think you can ever support another team once you pick one,been barracking for the Dees since 72,you can walk away for a while,for your own sanity and try not to take it as seriously but you always have that bond with your team.

            • gator59 says:

              Yes you have nailed it there JD… It's very frustrating when you lose GF's just because of luck… Then when you see the Doggies and Tiges waltz in and win when they've seen not much finals action for years

            • Russty_ says:

              Hey John, just very disappointed in the last few weeks, I tried switching to North Melbourne once when i was 12 years old, and realised that they sucked, and went back to the Saints lol, cause it didn't feel right.
              But I do agree with Gator, all Saints need to be out of my SC side, so Billings is out next week, straight to Jesse Hogan…bam!..Dees are on the rise and Saints are headed for the gutter..and when they play badly, which is normal now, the whole side goes missing, barring a few flukey good scores by a few who don't get dragged down by the whole depressing mess.
              Those 2 Grand Final losses still really hurt and I blame Zac Dawson for at least one of them…lol

              • hedski says:

                Savage is chugging along nicely mate just quietly.

                • Russty_ says:

                  Yeah he's going ok Hed, but it won't be long before he's at the psychologist again wondering why he's getting depressed again about losing every week lol

              • JohnDJ59 says:

                Hi Russty the closest I got to barracking for another team was to support a team in the finals,so I would have an interest.North in 74,75,76,77 due to Barrassi being coach and also wanting Stan Alves to win a premiership in 77.Hawthorn from 78-86,that ended with the 87 preliminary.Then with the Dees playing finals I didn't support any other club in finals till the mid 2000s,I did like Sydney in the 2005/2006 GF, St.Kilda 2009/10 GF and loved it when Sydney beat the Hawks in the 2012 GF. Since then I have kind of turned off finals time. I did think about Jesse for the fwd line after last week but it looked strange with three Dees players in it.

                  Hi John Russ Gat yeah Gator was right about the saints Billings to Petracca or Hoges makes sense What the saints need is another ROBBIE MUIR they are too soft and then good ball users like Kelly or Martin Too Late Time to do a Clarkson from 2017 scrap the year finish last (they may not need to try hard) sorry boys but fact then search for MUIR – CHEERS

                  • JohnDJ59 says:

                    Hey Neil Robbie Muir was in the head and would be on the sidelines more than not in today's game,not sure what the problem is with St.Kilda,but it sure isn't not having a Robbie Muir.

      • gator59 says:

        Now you know what I was talking about Russty.. They have no genuine A graders and until that happens they will not be SC Relevant.. Although young Coffield looked ok tonight

        • Russty_ says:

          Hey Gats, unfortunately, until he has a senior side he can respect, he'll end up a mediocre player too.

          • gator59 says:

            So true rusty.. They have to do some serious trading some where to get some A graders .. They say that they're cashed up to do this but I still say they should've traded picks 7 and 8 last year.. The way we are playing we're looking at a number 1 draft pick and we'll still f.uck that up too

  164. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Billings with a huge 💩

  165. SC_Donkey says:

    I'm thinking par score this week will be 2100, I'm seeing a lot of low scores so far. And the hype of Torranto backfired by looks of it. Bonner did ok, Luke Ryan looking like a breakout contender Walters hmmm Round 14 is just awkward for me. I have my sight set on Dusty and Jelwood.

    • Derek says:

      My Midfield PODs of Parker and Oliver very quiet today. Shaw had the ball plenty of times but kicked poorly. Billings just isn’t very good at football. Lobb got injured just when he was scoring really well.

      Rookies continue to do well. Holman scored good, Doedee, Murray and Finlayson in defence have been ourstanding.

      Pretty happy I stuck with Mills instead of going to Bonnar.

      And Fyfe VC is stashed away.

      Thinking 2200 will be a good score this week

      • TommyC99 says:

        Thanks Derek for convincing me to keep Mills! Was pretty annoyed when i saw my trade target in Ryan pump out a 110+. But MIlls stepped up tonight, very happy!

        As for my score. sitting on 1635 with Danger, Titch, Kelly, Dev Smith and Fyfes added 160 to come. Billings and Brayshaw really disappointing. With a bit of luck, should get close to 2200 which doesnt look like too bad of a score this week.

      • SC_Donkey says:

        Great you stuck with Mills and not trading him for another mid-price. I picked up Bonner for cash gen as i had Mihocek in the bench not making any cash. If Mihocek gets a game then I'll pick him up when he's on the bubble. By then Bonner should have generated enough cash to make my trade worthwhile.

      • Russty_ says:

        Good call sticking with Mills Derek, I think Billings is ok at Football, but that doesn't do you much good when 95% of your team are playing like crap, and disposing of the ball like under 13's.

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      I almost did Loyd (GWS) to taranto but held strong mentally and held considering hes fit and in the best 22. Rewarded with a 95 hopefully a decent stepping stone.

      • Derek says:

        There was a lot of love during the week for Fisher, Bonnar and Taranto. None of them covered themselves in glory.

    • Wombaaat says:

      I was heading for 2420 until Billings and Jack steven laid thier eggs on my score card. Now predicted for 2329.
      2300-2400 is the predicted range for most teams in my league

      • Russty_ says:

        That'll be a big score this week.

      • Derek says:

        That will rank high if you can manage that. Who is your C?

      • Rick Grimes says:

        I reckon I can still go 2300+

        • Derek says:

          That’s pretty good.

          I’ll need everything to go right to get 2200.

          Everything means Lycett getting at least 70

          • SC_Donkey says:

            I'm in the same boat Derek

            Still have
            Titch(VC), Danger(C), Smith, McLean, Kelly and Ryan to play. Hoping to hit 2200+

            This will be the best start of the season I ever had if i get 2200+
            Considering i had a couple of players scoring sub 40s last week and this week. Waiting patiently when the slaughter house is open.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      I’m still projected 2363….. Not to mention with TK, Titch, Danger, Devon, and Nic Nat to go scoring 1783 atm
      Top 1%?

  166. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    I think next week Lobb will be making way for Curnow. He gets absolutely monstered by competent rucks (like Grundy last week) and now that he'll be carrying a knee injury i just dont have confidence in his scoring ability.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      I’m thinking similar, except I don’t have a lot of money for trading.
      I’m likely going to downgrade him to Higgins or polson

  167. SneakySeedsman says:

    Do the Hawks have a tagger? not for this week but next week against Oliver who can't handle it yet, as shown in JLT. If you don't have him I wouldn't be rushing in just yet. Kelly will get cheaper too and may not be a viable option at all with Coniglio staying in one piece. Seedsman a great midprice pick averaging 96 and a major part of the crows attack, great buy for 300k congrats to the 9%

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Hawthorn used Howe as a tagger a bit last year and Shiels runs with players from time to time

    • Hawks says:

      Shiels will go to Oliver. Shiels is a great tagger for those ball getting types. Last week against Geelong Shiels laid 15 tackles on Dangerfield, he only really got off the chain for 5-10 minutes in the 2nd half.

      • Wombaaaat says:

        Thanks Hawks I wont bother with Oliver for a few weeks then. Steven to Dusty will break the seal on the trade vault this year

  168. StKilledme says:

    Kelly 91, I've got 123k defenders who can do better than that.
    He now ave 105 which is rubbish for a 620k mid. Dump him

    • SC_Donkey says:

      If you done your research you wouldn't be expecting him to score well. Obviously you don't and chasing points, good luck with that.

      • redherringfc says:

        Why’s that?

        I didn’t do my research, but went on last years points. Put him in at the last minute for Oliver, who I was concerned about his injury.

        Haven’t traded yet, but am considering Kelly to Coniglio.

        • SC_Donkey says:

          If you read my comments about Kelly this week prior to the game, you wouldn't be expecting him to score well. He doesn't do well against the Swans.

          If you have trades to burn by all means go for it. I think burning trades like that Kelly to Cogs is the dumbest idea at this time of the season. I would suggest you find other ways to get Cogs in if you think he's gonna be a Top 8 mid this year. With the likes of Dusty, Danger, Titch, Fyfe, Oliver, Kelly, Jelwood and Gaz taking up those 8 spots at this stage.

          • redherringfc says:

            Thanks for the reply.

            I’ve picked my 8 mids that I think will be best 8 come years end, but having doubts over Kelly, Zorko and Merrett.

            I won’t be trading Kelly out or bringing Coniglio in. I’m just dirty with myself that my only mid priced mid is Armitage and not Coniglio.

            • Whatyasmokin says:

              I thought Armitage would be a better pick than O'meara but big doubts now, he's gone this week.

    • Bend em says:

      Frustrated fellow.
      Great player Kelly who had an offish night by his lofty standards.

    • Crowboy94 says:

      91 that could have easily been over 100 if he kicked straight at goal. If 91 is as bad as a premo MID is going to be I'll take it!

  169. hedski says:

    I think I'll bank Murphys 63 rather than chance the Dreadnaughton…

  170. ATeam12345 says:

    Who else traded in Shaw and Taranto?

    • Russty_ says:

      If you traded both in this week, don't give up yet, Shaw's been doing well, and so has Taranto…they were playing their traditional rivals, usually a high tension game.

      • Derek says:

        I thought Shaw had a good game. His kicking wasn’t great like it usually is. Had it plenty of times though.

    • David C says:

      Taranto had a hard tag from Hewett. That's not going to happen often. He'll be a good pick going forward.

      • Whatyasmokin says:

        Waste of two trades whoever bought him in. Starting with him you'd probably hold, but he'll not be top, and now he will most likely be crap value and have little profit by the byes when you need to ditch him.

        It's that awkward price range/risk player combination that almost never pays off.

  171. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Seedsman didn't even enter my thought process when trading Naughton (went Bonner instead) Whoever picked him would be very happy right now

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      I was very close to picking him, flip of a coin, but I decided against it when I didn’t have enough money generated by my Hibberd to Simpson trade that I cancelled

      • Sc_Wow says:

        It’s 3 games in. The seed will start spudding it soon

        • Woohoo says:

          Idiot

          • Sc_Wow says:

            Look at his history Woohoo, only idiots are the ones backing him, have fun with your dud ranking

            • Wombaaaat says:

              Here's some history for you and it's recent history = the relevant kind.
              After an injury ended his 2016 he started 2017 in round 19 as a defensive tagger on Fasolo. He missed the next 3 and played the final round in midfield for 94.
              During the finals he knocked out a lazy 111 against the cats playing the role he has now. Played same role in GF but struggled along with all the crows. Ave 81 for finals

              In JLT 2018 He played the 'forward delivering defender' role scoring at over 1.15PPM. The fact that he had the role in the finals of 2017 and the pre-season of 2018 was evidence that he would have the role for the year.
              If you understand supercoach you'll know that this attacking defender role is one of the most lucrative roles in the game.
              So, seedsman had a 2017 finals ave of 81, he also scored at over 1.15PPM in JLT and also has Def/Mid status yet he was only 300k. To any astute observer that should say "great points with $ opportunity"
              If the unexpected happened and he ave below 80 his price would still increase AND he fills the important 'stepping stone' role giving an easier upgrade to MID PREMO or DEF Premo, if he isn't one himself at bye time.
              After the first 3-rounds he has an ave 91 and only 1 score below 99 and will be over 450 in four weeks.
              You are criticising people for having the aptitude to uncover 'low risk-high return' players whilst your own cookie cutter team is already more than 600 off the pace and ranked outside the top 15,000.
              If you haven't got something intelligent to say stay quiet.

    • pod says:

      You're right about the 'right now' but he's not going to sprout and grow.

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Early season Bolter aka Taranto.

  172. Russty_ says:

    How hard is Augusta National?…if I was playing there, I'd be +80 by now lol, but I still wouldn't have got a 13 like Sergio did.

    • hedski says:

      I put a sneaky tenner on Marc Russty, $500 back if he can stop his 3rd round chokes and hold on, he's looking good, especially going round with Tiger the first 2 days.

      • Russty_ says:

        Leish is a solid player mate, good luck with that, he came very close last year. Hope Tiger's crap play doesn't drag him down though…it can happen.

        • hedski says:

          Shouldn't be playing with him in the next round tho, Tiger only just made the cut.
          Haven't checked the tee times tonight shouldn't be far off.

          • Russty_ says:

            Yeh you're right, love to see Leishman get the green jacket, he's such an everyman, but a super talented Golfer.

  173. Tyruddanaut says:

    Shout out to those two people who traded in Ben Griffith’s and Kurt Tippett

  174. Tyruddanaut says:

    Is it worth holding Lobb?
    He’s a great player and the sole ruckman for GWS, but he’s going to score poorly for quite a while. If not, he just won’t play

    • Woohoo says:

      NO. You shouldn't have him scrap the turd now

    • SC_Donkey says:

      Personally, I'd hold. His not gonna lose much cash, wait until the rookies are ready for culling and then move him on to a premo whoever you got your mind set on.
      I have Cox who will bleed a bit of cash who I'm looking to trade out in a couple of weeks for Kreuzer.

      If you have used a few trades in the past two rounds, conserve your trades until round 5 or 6. If you still have 30 trades, then go sick and kick him off your team.

      • Tyruddanaut says:

        I’m worried about his injury.
        If he misses then I’ll trade

        • SC_Donkey says:

          If you have the cash to upgrade then move him on. 3 games in doesn't give you a good indication of who will be the top 6-8 fwd. I'm sure you can cover him if he's out next week. I would hold for a couple weeks and assess your options then, some rookies will be ready to be move on by then and you'll have more options to upgrade with the cash rookies generated as well premos dropped in price.

          Be patient, use those trades wisely.

    • Derek says:

      Wait to see extent of injury. I think he might miss a few weeks. Will need to trade him out.

  175. Pete says:

    Who would you consider untaggable, and in what order?
    I wanna see if this corresponds with my midfield picks.

    • dontblushbaby says:

      Dusty ,Danger, Titch

      • Pete says:

        Cripps?
        Usually gets 20 plus contested possies.

        • Octa says:

          We will find out next week with Cripps if Jacobs goes to him?

        • TommyC99 says:

          Wasn't a hard tag but Pendles went to him at stoppages. Based off his score it limited his impact a little bit

    • SC_Donkey says:

      Jacobs is in another level to any taggers this season, I think he'll give any player a run for their money. He's really good of what he does without being a pest/annoying to his opponents. His tackling, speed and reads the ball well is what impacts his opponent.

    • Moustachio says:

      Crouch and Gibbs… because teams will tag Sloane instead. Key to shuttig down the Crows and everyone knows it.

  176. Steve says:

    Had Fyfe as VC,to get his score can l put Sicily on field as captain and then bench Naughton as Emg

  177. Holty says:

    That feeling you have when ur proud of yourself with your team score and Shaw and Lobb happen.

  178. INPieman says:

    What a round for Brayshaw to shart out a 32. Sits in his price for 3 weeks. Might be the first rookie to head to the slaughterhouse

  179. iheartpendles says:

    I accidentally named Greene as emergency in my FWD line, even though he wasn't selected this week. I now want to loophole Fyfes 160 through Sicily, while placing Ryan on the bench as emergency. Will Ryan's score as emergency count, or will Greenes 0 count as the lowest emergency score? I looked through the rule book but i could only find the following:

    "Emergencies scoring 0 or negative points will not be considered the 'lowest-scoring' and will not be used"

    I'm unsure because I've been burnt like this before, was there a rule change or something this year for 0 scoring emergency players?

    Cheers

    • dontblushbaby says:

      You need the non playing player on field with the C on him , eg put the C on Sicily with E on Ryan ,as long as you have the VC on Fyfe you will get Fyfes score and Ryans score, Greene won't count for anything, hope that makes sense

    • INPieman says:

      Lowest score I'm afraid

    • iheartpendles says:

      Is anyone certain on this? If I'll get Greenes Zero I'd rather name mitchell as captain and risk it.

      • David C says:

        I wouldn't say I'm certain but pretty sure non playing Greene would not be considered if you have the e on him.

      • Sc_Wow says:

        Yeah why would you get a non playing players score as E. That’s just like saying your non playing C will get the captains score

    • KSinny says:

      You won't get Greene's score you'll get Ryan's score

  180. neil demons delight says:

    Hogan looks an immediate choice but his apprentiship as a flog could bring him undone Petracca most probably a safer choice as a forward keeper

    • pod says:

      Hoges nearly a must have, very keen on him. He's arrived and it's time to consider. Tracca playing well but not sure he's top 6.

  181. pod says:

    B.O.G. Mills what a turn around from previous weeks. Derek you need to change your name to something like 'The Sage'. Keep it coming well done!

    • Derek says:

      Cheers pod.

      I really liked how the swans gave it to him to make the clearing kick

      GWS’s forward pressure was poor. Different to Port game.

  182. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Purple pods do it again- onya lads

    Tarranto trade? Hmm didnt see the game but that is an awful score for him. Did trade brayshaw who went even worse so will give this one a few weeks to see how pans out. Maybe the sydney factor.
    But he is better than that. Didnt get injured did he?

  183. Richard says:

    I didnt get to catch the game last night community. What happened to Taranto? Was he still playing pure mid or has his role changed? Im basing his low score just off the fact that they played sydney but I want an opinion of someone whose seen the game. Cheers.

      • pod says:

        Dahl 65 half time. Only needed more mid time for him to get back to his usual self, look like he's getting that.

        • Derek says:

          So many examples of people trading out good players too early in season.

          Early round trades are to get rookies and trade injuries.

          Hibbo will be the next one to come good.

      • pod says:

        Menegola traveling ok on 64 18min into 2nd quarter

      Tough Marker Harry. Bont 52 at half time

      Merrett is a different story

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Think you might have to put that trade on hold Harry.

  188. Neverweaken says:

    Kept O'Meara this week. And didnt get Taranto but did get Coniglio. But next week Armitage to TMitch for a perma captain.
    Last 2 weeks VC Cripps into Buddy and Buddy into Martin. Just killing me. And Murray on the bench.
    At least Franklin tonned up from a poor start. And Walters who I think was 7 at quarter time.

          Yeah this 150 a week thing is becoming a habit, didn't vc him or Fyfe so hoping Danger has a good one.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Thought you would have gone with Titch Russty,had the VC on Fyfe & C on Titch for the first three rounds and will for the next two.

        • Russty_ says:

          Rolled the dice on Gawn John..gonna be a bad week for my team this week

          • JohnDJ59 says:

            Big Maxy was looking good at HT,so not a bad call Russty,I guess that is one advantage of not having Danger in my team at the moment,had a look at the fixture for the first five weeks and Fyfe & Titch worked in well with it,the only ones I thought I could depend on.

            • Russty_ says:

              You might not even want him by then John if Scott keeps playing him fwd, yeah no one to blame but myself for this week's choices, oh well, dem's the breaks and all that, I think it'll be a miracle if I make it to 2100 this week.

              • Sandyf62 says:

                Hey Russty by the sound of it,better to just write this round off,I had Titch as VC and Danger as C,but after Titches score put the C on Olango. The way it's going maybe it was a good idea to start without Danger,had him in and out of my team in the lead up to round one,but went with him to save a trade later on.

                • JohnDJ59 says:

                  I said at the start of the season,that Danger getting that injury might be a good thing,so that teams would have to make a decision on whether to start him or not,I only decided a few days out from the start,with the plan to get him in round six and use Fyfe&Titch as VC&C till then.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Feeling really happy I don't have Danger at the moment,looking forward to round six,when I planned to get him in after a nice price drop.

      • JugHead says:

        I don't think he wanted to put Danger back on the ball during the last part of the Hawks game but did anyway to try to win it. Now they have to look after that hamstring after a 6 day break.

      • Sc_Wow says:

        Who for exactly?

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          Have money in the bank to be able to upgrade one of the expensive rookies to him.

  199. Harry says:

    Bit concerned for Tim Kelly

  200. Steeeve says:

    Who else has the C on Danger?

  201. Holty says:

    Gee trading Menegola for Shaw this week is looking the goods.😣

  202. Neverweaken says:

    My opponent has VC on Mitchell and C on Danger. And has left C on Danger. My only hope of catching up on him

  203. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    What a backwards week of supercoach

  204. Crowboy94 says:

    Anyone give up on SC yet? 😂 I can honestly say I nearly have…. So many pathetic scores from premo players….

    • Russty_ says:

      Gotta persevere mate..it's a long season, one game won't break you.

      • Defying_Madness says:

        Merret, Lobb, Billings will though

        • BlueBaggerJosh says:

          Wasted trades, should've listened to you mate, Ryan would've been perfect cover and Naughton improved once again

      • Kyle says:

        One game wont but the first 3 of the year could. Worst start to my year since the first year i ever played haha

    • Holty says:

      Lobb Shaw Roughie McGovern Oliver for me

  205. DavidSA says:

    WOW! Highest scores in Essendon team is 85 from Devon Smith and Michael Hurley. That is a insane result for the supercoach record books

    • INPieman says:

      What's even more astonishing is Naughton was 24 points away from Dons highest scorer

    • Wombaaaat says:

      Yep Zach Merrett in 5-weeks might be a straight swap for Holman at this rate.
      WTF with Kelly and the Salary Cap 3

    • JEL says:

      WTF, did they even turn up?
      My 2 Bombers are Smith & Zerret, hope I can write it off as just one bad week.

  206. Finnius says:

    Menegola on 85 5 minutes into the 3rd… who traded him?

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Not many started him Finnius. if you want him he'll be 100k cheaper in 4-weeks status turned off most

    • Holty says:

      I did Finnius. Wasnt too upset until Ablett went down. Now he will probably go back to his role last year.

  207. JugHead says:

    Dodged more bullets than john wayne this weekend. Was looking forward to making up some ground on the field. Then YEO hits me right between the eyes in the last game FFS

  208. BrownlowBoy says:

    Those who traded Menegola wouldn't be happy!

  209. Sc_Wow says:

    I'm absolutely gobsmacked at how many dopes actually started with Dangerfield knowing that he would miss rnd 1 and that Ablett had been added to the side. Just plain stupid

    • Ja191 says:

      he's going to average 130?

      • Sc_Wow says:

        Thanks Nostradamus what makes you think things will change? Also are you including the donut for round 1 in that calculation?

    • INPieman says:

      Save trades to get him in is the logic. You can get him later but how?

      • Wombaaaat says:

        I planned to not start him, I think most who didn't start him would have also planned.
        If he was going to be an immediate must have after 2-rounds I have a 500k player I took a gamble on and 250k in the bank. The 500k player was going great until injured this round but will increase by 20k.
        I have to trade out the gamble but now I'm not sure if I want Danger until he shows that he's not going to lose 150k before the bye.
        I have TMitch, Dusty and Macrae already and I think Oliver might struggle for a few games against taggers so Who do I swap the now 520k mid for?
        I have 760k to spend

    • Crowboy94 says:

      You wouldn't be saying that if he was going at better disposal efficiency. Still has had 22 touches.. good luck getting him in 👍 still won't be easy even If he does drop a little bit.

    • Russty_ says:

      Why not start your own profile instead of impersonating someone else, and then trolling in their name, seems a bit cowardly.
      Did the real wow hurt your feelings?..lol

      • Sc_Wow says:

        stay on topic mate and stop your passive aggressive trolling

        • Russty_ says:

          haha well my topic is, why are you posting in someone else's name?..and why would we listen to a fake troll?
          Make your own profile…whatever your name is.

    • Rocksta says:

      How’s your theory going now given Ablett just pinged a hammy?

    • Nuggety says:

      Oop lookout the professor's back..

  210. BrownlowBoy says:

    Don't have him but is Elliot Yeo sitting on the ground throwing mud or something? 4 POINTS!!!!!

  211. TOPHAWK1 says:

    What a round of mayhem this has been!! Turds are littered all over the place. Billings, Zerrett and Parker have been a frigging disgrace in my side this week. If I did not have the VC on Fyfe and Titch (469 SC between them) my score would have made grown men cry. LOL

    • Crowboy94 says:

      Mine will. Will be lucky to get 2000…. I think Merrett may get chopped this week. Doesn't look good at all

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        I hate sideways trading. But I still have all my trades and all the good rooks. Zerrett is really really tempting to replace with someone like Coniglio. I am going to pull 2 SERIOUS trades this week. Do a bit of serious housekeeping…..

        • Crowboy94 says:

          So do I. I already had to do one last week getting rid of Lambert. But trading him to Mclean was great since he got over 100 again this week

    • Russty_ says:

      I am crying with my score mate, and laughing at the same time 🙂

      • hedski says:

        I was crying at half time of cats game Russty, then laughing at 3 qtr time, now I'm crying again 😭

        • Russty_ says:

          Yeah Hedski, I thought they'd get over the line, Gazza going down hurt them bad. Bad luck mate.

    • Kyle says:

      Haha im playing ya in trigs happy place tophawk! Your still gonna destroy this poor bugger!

      You pulled the masterstroke of the fyfe vc. Meanwhile i went cripps into danger. Boy oh boy

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Hi Kyle, I just had a hunch on Fyfe going big this round. I VC'd Fyfe in round one and he produced 75 SC. I just took a leap of faith after that and backed him in. It was nice it came off. Hopefully we shall meet again later in the season! Cheers mate.

  212. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Hammy for Ablett!!! WOW

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      What absolute carnage. Looks like Gaz will miss a number of weeks if his body language was anything to go by.

    • pod says:

      At least he dropped a ton for his owners before bowing out. I think they need to put him away until fully fit and save him for big games.

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      Such a shame

    • AuroraBorealis?! says:

      that right there is exactly why I didn’t select him.

    • Holty says:

      Nooooooo. Just when i thought it couldnt get any worse this round.

  213. SC_Donkey says:

    Gaz pulled a hammy

  214. DavidSA says:

    Boom Ablett done he's done

  215. Rocksta says:

    Elliot Yeo on -9 5 mins into the last qtr. I don’t have him thank Christ but I don’t tink I’ve ever seen anything like it. Ablett just pinged a hammy as well. His age and hammy issues was always going to be a problem.

  216. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Just noticed Yeo's score. WTF? -8 SC?? I thought I had problems. Yeo owners will be absolutely spewing.

    • Russty_ says:

      A mate of mine has him..started the year really well too, he will be spewing!

    • Kyle says:

      And those who dont have the yeo yeo will be licking their lips tophawk!

      • Sc_Wow says:

        Don’t know if I want him if he’s capable of this junk

        • Kyle says:

          thats a fair point wow. Will certainly be watching him very closely over the next few weeks tho. Hopefully the yeo of past years hasnt come back again

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Agreed Kyle! He was playing this stupid role in the first three quarters. As soon as he got some midfield time, bang he came alive. Take note Adam Simpson!

  217. SC_Donkey says:

    You can't keep a good man down, take a bow Danger and Kelly.

  218. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Dont tell me danger could be the top scorer?
    Amazingly could happen
    Kelly coming home like a train as well

    • Kyle says:

      Certainly hope so! Need danger to top titches score after throwing the C on danger and kelly on field

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Danger is unbelievable. He did the same last week. Coming home like a dragster down the straight without the chute out. Coaches who did not start with him will suffer big time.

      • Defying_Madness says:

        I am very happy I didn't start him right now

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Why should we suffer big time if we didn't start Danger,as long as we have a plan to get him back in I don't see the problem.I'm going alright with Fyfe & Titch as my main mids at the moment.

    • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

      Nope menegola's takes the gig

  219. Finnius says:

    I need Danger to beat Joel Selwood by 42 points to get up in my cashie… Go you majestic human being

  220. TOPHAWK1 says:

    OOOOOOOOHHH . Ryan. That is a tragedy.

    • SC_Donkey says:

      Should we take the money and run for Henry who will be on the bubble. JS should be decent with all the injuries Cats have tonight

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        I am looking to bring Henry in this week. That Ryan ankle injury does not look great. Will cash in Ryan and his 3 rounds of points for Henry. Ended up with 2221 this week. Will take it, albeit below par.

    • Defying_Madness says:

      I just brought him in as well

  221. Defying_Madness says:

    Langdon to Ryan looking like a great trade…

  222. TommyC99 says:

    Danger didnt get a point for a handball late looking like its gonna cost me. Losing 1 league by a point. Also needed Danger to get withing 18 pts of Gaff for another league which thought was a lock midway through the last. I hate supercoach

  223. Wombaaat says:

    First time under 2400 for the year with 2377 but I reckon I might move up a bit based on the chatter here.

  224. Rocksta says:

    2360 for me this week. I’ll take that given a number of premos underferformed. I reckon par will be around 2250.

  225. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    What happened to Ryan? I'm gonna have no cover in Fwd line if he misses weeks

  226. Tyruddanaut says:

    Sitting on 2318 at the end of the round
    Had a few spuds including Billings, Lobb, Danger and Bonner (I should have listened), but it was all worth it due to 6 120 including Fyfe and Titch.

    On top of this, I had 10 players at 100 and won 9 of 10 leagues

    I’m thinking this will be top 2%!

    So many players which underperformed or were traded played up to standard or higher. I’m looking at you Menegola, O’Meara and Hibberd

  227. Crowboy94 says:

    Got to love all the people who scored over 2200 saying they had a bad week 😂. You have no idea what a struggle in supercoach is if that is bad.

    • Holty says:

      True. I scored 2249 and although got hit hard with injuries and spud premo scores, i know ive been very lucky.

    • Neverweaken says:

      honestly thought 2204 was crap. Murray on the bench. Armitage 47 and Dusty as Captain. Anyone with Fyfe as captain should do well

    • KSinny says:

      2160 😢😭😢😭

    • Derek says:

      I had a choice between Fritsch, Ryan and Venables to put on field. I don’t need to tell you who I chose.

      • Russty_ says:

        Any way you can go Lycett to Nicnat Derek? he looked pretty awesome and will get better and better.

    • Kyle says:

      Didnt even crack 2000 this week :’(

      Danger C zerrett neale brayshaw stephenson all on field. greene and sicily on the pine…gonna have to trade ryan

      All in all an absolute shocked

  228. SC_Donkey says:

    Pretty happy with 2203 consider a 38 from Cox while English in the bench with 76. I'll take anything over 2200 each week, best start to the season i had in years.

    • johnno2908 says:

      Tell me about. Can’t believe I scrapped 2261. Felt like a sh*thouse week. Nervous wait ahead with my forward line though. Walters, Lobb and Ryan. Lobb might have to go this week.

      • Crowboy94 says:

        No a sh*those week is 2016…..

      • SC_Donkey says:

        Fwd line is a mayhem, i still have langdon who's injured and now ryan. Looking at getting Higgins or Henry. Though Henry's JS is looking good with all the injuries Cats have at the moment.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Solid score Doncs. Looking good. I just pipped ya with 2221. Amidst all the spud mayhem and injuries, if you can continue to be consistently scoring 2200+ week in week out in the first 5 rounds with most trades in tact, I reckon you are setting up a great foundation for the rest of the season. I know I am glad that round is over, because it was a bloody stressful one! Cheers mate

      • SC_Donkey says:

        My Anxiety was high during this Round, bloody rapt it's over only had 7 players who scored 100+ in this Round

        I might be forced to do at least one trade, can't have three non playing rookies, hopefully O'Connor gets a call next week. Will save me a trade, Henry is looking tasty though.

        Love to get an average 2200+ on the first 5 rounds. My team is traveling nicely keeping up with the pack.

        • TOPHAWK1 says:

          I am trading twice this week. I have to move after sitting on all my 30 trades up to this stage. I have ZGL and Ryan who will probably now both be out for 3 or more weeks. I kept ZGL as a loopholer, but with Ryan going down, its time to get to work in my forward line. Especially with under achievers like Billings and other flaky players up there. I reckon if you can get to round 6 with AT LEAST 25 trades in the kitty with a 2200+ average, with the right cash cows, and a bit of luck on the injury front, you will be in the hunt big time.

          • SC_Donkey says:

            Was my plan to conserve trades until Round 5 or 6 barring any injuries. Was gonna hold on to Langdon and probably will as he's on the bubble. Ryan on the other hand he's made us at least $70K this week and injured worth moving him on and pocket the cash for future upgrade. I will be doing a lot of practice trading during the week on how i can restructure my rookies.

            • TOPHAWK1 says:

              I am holding Langdon purely as a loopholer, and as a bubble boy. He is now only 2-3 weeks away from coming back. Liam Ryan has to go now. That ankle injury looks pretty bad and he may be out for a while. Glad that I started with him to grab his 250 odd points and the $80K profit. Kid has a great future, he can play.

  229. Holty says:

    Gee a bit hard on Ablett. Scaled him down to 92. He was arguably the main reason they were still in the game until he did his hammy.

  230. Fearthebeard says:

    Anyone else got the urge to cull billing’s? Geelong and gws coming up and he’s playing like trash while Heeney is looking good!?

  231. Steeeve says:

    Said it already but bonner to yeo in a fortnight should be tasty.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      I like it…I like it a lot!! Hopefully Adam Simpson will now get it into his thick skull to give Yeo more midfield time after his last quarter. Not sure what Adam wanted Yeo to do in the first 3 quarters, because it didnt work.

  232. Multi_ says:

    Just put in Ryan for Langdon last week also have Ablett brutal start to the year with injuries

  233. Steeeve says:

    Two tons to start the year but in a fortnight he'll be around 460k. If Bonner can get to 360k holy moly that's going to be worth going early on bonner.

  234. TheBenchmark25 says:

    Had a nice round number of exactly 2400
    Pretty happy with it. Only billings was on the downside
    Fogarty from Adelaide not getting named made me bring in 102k Murphy via Sicily swing which saved menagola from being traded
    Lucky week

  235. nickgonzalez771 says:

    SUPERCOACH IS OPEN!

  236. Russty_ says:

    Ouch!..dropped 4000 spots in the ranks this week with my poxy score lol
    Won 2 out of 10 leagues miraculously..one of them by one point haha

    • Mark says:

      ok thanks for that i can sleep now

    • Derek says:

      Pretty rough week. Turn it around next week.

    • NEIL DEMONS DELIGHTn says:

      Hey Russty Last year I had 2000 one week then next week with the same team I had 2537 Supercoach works like that next week our turn just dump all your saints players cheers mate

      • Russty_ says:

        Cheers Neil, yeah mate, things can turn around quickly..already did that with the Saints..team looks better already haha, shame about Ryan, brought him in this week..good player too.

  237. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    2241, alright score I think considering I went up, albeit slightly, ranked in the low 3000's. No trades this week, Billings tempting me but don't want to test my fate.

  238. Crowboy94 says:

    Trade Merrett or Hold?
    If trade who should I get?

    Current MID is

    Danger, Mitchell, Kelly, Fyfe, Merrett, Banfield, Holman, Kelly

  239. Tyruddanaut says:

    I’m very upset with Zorko this week, but hey, I forgot the plan that I had plugged into a document early in the preseason:
    “Bring in Zorko late due to an easier line-up going into finals”
    Oh well

    What to do with Brayshaw?
    Scored 32 with a BE of 33
    I’m likely going to hold a week and see where that takes me

  240. Hawks says:

    What to do with Brayshaw & Dom Barry?

  241. TommyC99 says:

    Looking forward to bringing in Yeo in a week or 2. Very nice bye and will come at a significant discount

  242. Neverweaken says:

    Caddy and Armitage out for Mitchell and a Rookie. Richards im guessing. Any other Rookie options?

    • Russty_ says:

      Jack Henry looked pretty good today.

      • NEIL DEMONS DELIGHTS says:

        great contest Russty both of us shizen ANY PLANS

        • Russty_ says:

          Yeah it was closely contested shite Neil lol..well done you beat me 3 times :), Plans, yeah Billings gone for Juggernaut Jesse, shouldv'e started with him, he's a gun..FK all Saints, got Sicily back so maybe just the one this week.

      • Neverweaken says:

        Thanks for that. Might stick with Richards. Prefer defence Rookies to Fwd Rookies. Though his DPP is nice.

        • Russty_ says:

          No worries NW, Henry is just fwd only mate.

          • Neverweaken says:

            Sorry, confused with Jack Higgins. Richmond mid forward. Only played the one game though and not sure of JS
