CHEAT SHEET AND CAPTAIN’S CORNER

Filed in Supercoach 2018 by on 02/05/2018 • views: 11953

Things are starting to heat up community!

Strange things are starting to happen. Zorko the Not-So-Magnificent has not only crashed down to Earth, it’s almost as if he has disappeared off the face of the Supercoach landscape completely. West Coast have won 5 on the trot, and North Melbourne are in the top 8. The face of footy is changing. And we’re right in the middle of it, community.

Still no sign of Kelly, and Sloane and Ryder are still out. Buddy, Kreuzer and Greene are all goneski for another week. In the words of almost every Supercoach player ever – CARNAGE! Damo and I locked horns last week, and while I celebrated my win pretty manically until Wednesday morning, I had to be dragged back down to reality when I realised that he is still ranked 809. And me? Well, let’s just say it’s 5 digits and be done with it. Whether that means 10,000th or 99,999th, you’ll never know. I hope…

Top 10 Supercoach Scores

  1. Max Gawn – 168 (10 points)
  2. Lachie Neale – 151 (9 points)
  3. Adam Treloar – 149 (8 points)
  4. Jeremy Howe – 149 (8 points)
  5. Justin Westhoff – 147 (6 points)
  6. Marcus Bontempelli – 145 (5 points)
  7. Patrick Cripps – 143 (4 points)
  8. Isaac Smith – 143 (4 points)
  9. Jack Macrae – 141 (2 points)
  10. Brad Ebert – 139 (1 point)

Leaderboard

  1. Max Gawn – 21
  2. Tom Mitchell – 20
  3. Nat Fyfe – 18
  4. Dustin Martin – 16
  5. Kade Simpson – 13
  6. Patrick Cripps – 12
  7. Brodie Grundy – 12
  8. Robbie Gray – 11
  9. Jarrod Lyons – 10
  10. Justin Westhoff – 10

We have a new leader and it is none other than The Walking Beard. Gawn’s mammoth score against Matty Leunberger has earned him a spot just above Tom Mitchell, which is fitting considering he towers over nearly everyone on the leaderboard. Patty Cripps has sprung into equal 6th with a big score against the Bulldogs, and Justin Westhoff has brought his tally up to 10 with a big game from him. There are many players on 10 points, so for the sake of space I’m only including Westhoff and Lyons due to them gaining ranking points in 2 separate weeks, rather than just one monster score. Sorry Brandon Parfitt, maybe next year mate!

Captain Choices

Geelong vs Greater Western Sydney

Friday 4 May 7:50PM – GMHBA

Last time they met: Geelong 15.13.103 def. GWS 8.11.59

Top 5 Scores: P Dangerfield 163, S Menegola 143, C Ward 136, S Selwood 128, M Duncan 125

With Patrick Dangerfield playing on a Friday night, can you really afford to not VC him? All your friends will, and you really can’t afford to be the one who misses out if he goes massive. Don’t think about it, just do it. There’s a good chance you won’t even have to select a captain this week.

Western Bulldogs vs Gold Coast

Saturday 5 May 1:45PM – Mars Stadium

Last time they met: Western Bulldogs 16.14.110 def. Gold Coast 8.8.56

Top 5 Scores: M Wallis 124, L Hunter 116, L Picken 115, L Dahlhaus 115, S Biggs 109

Jack Macrae is tearing the roof off the 2018 season so far, with a 141 on the weekend, an average of 122.5 and an average against Gold Coast of 120.8. The Bulldogs should be looking to turn their season around, with Gold Coast on the weekend and Brisbane Lions the week after, so expect Macrae to be one of the frontrunners of that. Good Vice Captain option. If you wanted to go the other way, Jarrod Witts had been in terrific form before his matchup against Adelaide last week. With a depleted Bulldogs ruck stock, Witts should be able to dominate English and Trengove in the air.

 

Essendon vs Hawthorn

Saturday 5 May 2:10PM – MCG

Last time they met: Essendon 17.14.116 def. Hawthorn 12.19.91

Top 5 Scores: D Heppell 152, Z Merrett 126, B Goddard 123, T Mitchell 116, B McEvoy 106

I hate to say it, but Essendon are terrible. We really are. I’m not writing us out of this game by any means, but I think we will struggle if Hawthorn bring their A-game. And their A-game is led by none other than Tom Mitchell. Essendon don’t have any taggers, so Mitchell will probably prance around and rack up ungodly amounts of touches. He’s a fairly safe VC choice. If Matthew Leunberger is the starting ruckman again, Ben McEvoy could also be a good pick again. He had a stellar game on the weekend and should back that up again this week, so lock him in. (If Bellchambers is back, I wouldn’t still pick McEvoy so use your best judgement).

West Coast vs Port Adelaide

Saturday 5 May 4:35PM – Optus Stadium

Last time they met: Port Adelaide 18.12.120 def. West Coast 13.10.88

Top 5 Scores: J Westhoff 136, P Ryder 129, B Ebert 115, C Dixon 115, R Gray 110

Nic Nat with no Paddy Whack? Give the dog the bone already! Nic Naitanui will dominate in the ruck this week, and the fact that West Coast seem to be on the way up would be encouraging for Eagles fans. Nic Nat will start getting more and more midfield time, because while Lycett has been in exceptional form, he’s still second string. More minutes = more Supercoach points. Lock him in for a dominant display in front of a home crowd.

 

Sydney vs North Melbourne

Saturday 5 May 7:25PM – SCG

Last time they met: Sydney 18.12.120 def. North Melbourne 11.12.78

Top 5 Scores: N Newman 151, J Kennedy 136, D Hannebery 134, I Heeney 130, S Reid 127

Are North Melbourne good? It’s a little bit confusing. 3 wins already says they’re tracking along nicely, but I’m having a hard time getting the cognitive part of my brain to entertain the idea that North aren’t a bottom 2 side. Regardless, Sydney is better, and there’s one man we can turn to when Sydney need to stamp their authority. Enter Josh P Kennedy. Kennedy has had a rather ordinary start to the season, but tonned up for the first time on the weekend and has a history of starting sluggish. A lot of coaches are trading in JPK this week, and with a 3-game average against North of 129, you could be very well served to give him a debut captain’s game.

 

Adelaide vs Carlton

Saturday 5 May 8:10PM – Adelaide Oval

Last time they met: Adelaide 13.11.89 def. Carlton 12.5.77

Top 5 Scores: B Gibbs 142, M Crouch 132, P Cripps 126, S Docherty 122, B Crouch 121

 

If you have a look at the top 5 scores last time these teams met, you’ll notice they are all midfielders or play a midfielder-escent role (Docherty). This game is going to be won out of the middle. And for me, Bryce Gibbs is the man to captain in his debut game against Carlton. He started off the season terrifically, and with Matt Crouch working his way back into it and Rory Sloane out of the side, Gibbs should be able to know Carlton’s game style well enough to capitalise and win the ball out of the middle, and set up some goals in what will probably be an absolute whitewash.

Richmond vs Fremantle

Sunday 6 May 1:10PM – MCG

Last time they met: Richmond 25.5.155 def. Fremantle 7.9.51

Top 5 Scores: N Fyfe 142, K Lambert 133, B Houli 132, S Grigg 130, D Martin 130

 

David Mundy? Maybe? Please? Mundy kicked the game winning goal against the tigers earlier last year, and while I would love if that happened again (as would Damo), I don’t think it’s feasible to captain the old man. Dustin Martin on the other hand? Lock him in. Nat Fyfe will also be a good choice, but Bailey Banfield couldn’t possibly tame the beast that is Dusty Martin. If Banfield tags him, you might as well not even worry about a VC. Dusty’s your man, back him in for a big game.

 

St Kilda vs Melbourne

Sunday 6 May 3:20PM – Etihad Stadium

Last time they met: Melbourne 14.12.96 def. St Kilda 10.12.72

Top 5 Scores: C Pederson 137, N Jones 128, J Billings 112, B Longer 108, M Hibberd 107

I watched and wrote up a report on this game in the preseason, and I can tell you, I was almost falling asleep. I occupied myself by spending a lot of time in the line at the canteen, because the cold sausage rolls were more excting than this game. What a bore. Christian Petracca killed it, but he’s out with another dog-related injury (or did he get into a bar fight?), so the only one I would recommend from this game is the great Max Gawn. Absolutely, single-handedly, categorically destroyed St Kilda in the preseason, and no doubt he’ll do it again this week. This man just loves wreaking havoc on the Supercoach landscape. Lock him in for a monster score.

 

Brisbane vs Collingwood

Sunday 6 May 4:40PM – Gabba

Last time they met: Collingwood 18.21.129 def. Brisbane 13.6.84

Top 5 Scores: A Treloar 141, D Zorko 130, S Pendlebury 130, D Beams 127, B Grundy 120

Brodie Grundy and Stef Martin are locking horns this week in what will be a Clash of the Titans. I wouldn’t captain either of them, I can’t see either going over 115 Supercoach points. Dayne Zorko has been terrible, so you probably shouldn’t even have him in your team anymore, let alone captain him. If you’re going to pick anyone from this game, pick Scott Pendlebury. He has scored a total of 400 points over his last 3 games against Brisbane, and should be a key figure in what will probably be a humiliation of the home side. Lock him in if you have him, these are the games which earn him the nickname ‘DePendlebury’.

The Cheat Sheet

Okay, okay. So my Friday night jinx didn’t actually jinx the Bulldogs last week. But I swear, that’s my first correct Friday night tip and a very long time.

Who are you putting the captaincy on this week community?

    Need help i have 23 trades and 645k feedback would help 🙂

    laird, yeo, finalysion, doedee, murray,bonner ( naughton, murphy)

    fyfe, dusty, cripps, mitchell, coniglio, kelly, banfield, holman, ( coffield, barry, brodie)

    gawn, nic nat, ( cameron)

    heeney, smith, petracca, billings, firstch,crowden ( fogarty, ahern)

  2. Patch says:

    You blokes are rippers. Jimmy Webster an intriguing one and at a very nice price for those looking to upgrade Riley Bonner. Hmmmmmm

    • Brim_Cat says:

      Looks an even better prospect now that Roberton has been ruled out for the season!

  3. redherringfc says:

    I’m jumping on board with jpk. 441k is just too good to knock back.

    As for captain, Fyfe into Gawn. I’ll keep an eye on the live scores and know by half time weather to take Fyfe or go with Gawn.

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Be careful with that. Fyfe was 50 odd at qtr time last week to finish on 114.

      • redherringfc says:

        Yeah I know. I think I’ll get close to three quarter time. I might end up with Danger VC, as per your earlier post.

    • SC_Sixty_6 says:

      1 dominant 4th quarter in a high profile game does't make a player a must have! Look at his decline last season and the start of this year. Although JPK is cheap, getting a player who would likely only average 100 in the mids isn't enough

      • redherringfc says:

        I know jpk isn’t a must have, but he is exceptional value at the moment.

        I’ve used hardly any trades to date. He will either be upgraded near seasons end for a decent profit or sit on the pine.

        You know when a trade feels right and for me, this one does.

        • ATeam12345 says:

          Instead of Kennedy, I would wait until Zorko bottoms out completely, he's sure to bounce back and prob be a straight swap for Brayshaw at this rate.
          Get Zerret this round. Still good value.

          • redherringfc says:

            I’m going Zorko to jpk.

            Already have Merrett.

            • Whatyasmokin says:

              Sydney mids worry me.

              • Wedge says:

                I think a rule should be never to start with Sydney mids. The Swans tend to start really poorly but come to life in the back half of the season

    • Shake_n_Bake_ says:

      Rd 14 bye.

    • Soothsayer says:

      Could jpk get the Jacobs tag and go missing?

  4. FranklinShow says:

    Brilliant as always!!

    I read somehwere Big Kruze has trained strongly this wk and is a big chance to return. Believe afl.com.

    As for my dilema – i desperately need wins in cash league so cant afford to carry Walters. Going to trade to a mid.

    Macrae, Cripps, Matt Crouch – what does community feel is the better option?

    • redherringfc says:

      I won’t go near Cripps. I missed his bargain starting price and refuse to pay overs for him.

      Macrae was Mr Consistency last year, right up to the point when I traded him in. Those scars haven’t healed yet, so I’m not going to recommend him.

      That leaves Crouch. Eventually he’ll make it into my team and he’s the one I’d recommend out of those 3.

      • Ja191 says:

        he's only appreciated 36k off his starting price which was cheap. For a guy that could very well average 120 that's a bargain. Coming straight into my team (cripps that is)

        • redherringfc says:

          I hadn’t checked his price, but knew he was scoring well. I’m surprised he’s only gone up that much.

          I’m still going to steer clear, too much value to be had elsewhere.

        • SC_Sixty_6 says:

          Sounds like you want to trade in a bloke who scored 2, 140's in a row and because of that must trade him in. Did you have this optimism after his back to back 90's? Don't think he's at a Dangerfield level and would keep up 120+ week in week out. At least doesn't have the historical data backing him.

          Be careful trading in players who have likely already had there highest score(s) for the season, law of averages will go against you. Not saying he's a bad pick, but the 30% of teams have an advantage over you getting him cheaper. Especially when there's a few similar scoring players in Bont, Neale, Merrett substantially cheaper available, as well as Crouch next week.

          • Whatyasmokin says:

            3 scores this year of 130+ and against good teams in my opinion Cripps is looking like a top mid this year. 570K aint too bad.

          • SC_Sixty6 says:

            Flog fake sixty ^^^^^^ get your own name and reputation

      • karlos says:

        That's sounds a bit off to me… You wont go near Cripps, who's currently no. 3 total points midfielder, coz you didn't start with him when he was bargin priced. hes only gone up 30k

        Cripps and Macrae both have round 12 bye. Both avg'ing 120 and priced under 600k. I would say both are good picks.
        Crouch has round 14 bye, which is shared with many other prems. also still has a high BE. maybe wait a couple weeks.

        • redherringfc says:

          Yeah, they’re good picks, but for me they miss the cut.

          Top mids at finals time for me are Danger, Dusty, Mitchell, Oliver, Merrett, Kelly, Fyfe and Crouch.

          going on last year, Macrae will fade. Cripps might beat one of my picks, but I’m backing them in.

    • Errol says:

      Matt crouch BE is huge wait two weeks for him

  5. SC_Sixty6 says:

    Can't go past Danger for who have him. Because we all know go without the VC on him and he will destroy you. Or maybe this year we won't be seeing the old danger. Titch will be my Cap. As was said bombers have no tagger so I too expect 38 disposals minimum from Tommy!

    • Lazza says:

      Can’t see Hickey dampening Gawn’s performance.. Danger into Gawn for me.

  6. Krups says:

    Gee tough one this week. So many combos.
    Danger into Dusty
    Danger into Mitchell
    Danger into Gawn
    Mitchell into Dusty
    Mitchell into Gawn
    Dusty into Gawn

  7. BrownlowBoy says:

    Any suggestions community?

    119k in the bank and 26 trades.

    Laird, Sicily, Hibberd, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, Naughton, Murray
    Dangerfield, Mitchell, Fyfe, Oliver, Coniglio, Kelly, Holman, Banfield, Brayshaw, Higgins, Barry
    Gawn, Nankervis, Olango
    Heeney, Gray, Walters, Smith, Billings, Fritsch, Langdon, Henry

    • Jeff says:

      Its probably your last chance to get Cripps in at this price so maybe paint the fence and trade out Holman and Murray (or Brayshaw and swing Finlayson to Mid) and bring in Cripps and Duman.

  8. Mike says:

    How long do i hold J . KELLY. BUDDY AND PETRACCA for all 3 are killing me ehen the bloddy are thery all coming back . Im getting flogged in every league

  9. Corey says:

    Should We Trade Walters
    for me my bench cover is Henry and Garlett with langdon and Fritsch on the field

    • Cogla13 says:

      I'm holding him. Freo have a late game this week so he will be my captains loop.

  10. ???????? says:

    thoughts

    • pod says:

      Missed the boat on both lost almost 200k waiting a week or go one down to spar go for instance and the the other up to a premo or just do one trade

    • Northernsoul74 says:

      Higgins and Guelfi needed to come in last round. Too late now, you’re not making enough on the trades.

    • Brim_Cat says:

      Would be looking at duman/spargo/ronke if you need to downgrade this week

    • Westy says:

      Guelfi's out.

  12. ROB14 says:

    Trade in Mitchell, Treloar or Cripps? Can't decide!!?

    • redherringfc says:

      Mitchell is a must, the others not so much.

      He’s also near the lowest price he will be, at least for some time.

      • Whatyasmokin says:

        With a BE of 156 I reckon he could drop down to 550K, that saying he is a must have and could actualky hit near his BE anyway.

    • SC_Sixty_6 says:

      What redherringfc said! Mitchell at 600k is a must have. Treloar and Cripps at that price, not so much

      • Russty_ says:

        Did you think of that profile name yourself or are you impersonating SC_Sixty6… and if so, why?
        I can't take you seriously knowing that you only did that for trolling purposes.

  13. Willymack1234 says:

    Crippa or Oliver what do we recon fellas?

  14. Eric_the_Red says:

    Is it worth bringing in Sicily for Walters and then trading buddy to Heeney or perhaps a mid like Bont or Kennedy?

    • Derek says:

      You will score a lot more points. That is name of the game.

      I don’t have either Buddy or Walters. If I did, I would hold Buddy think he will play next week, but I would 100% trade Walters…. easy to say when I don’t have him.

    • SC_Sixty_6 says:

      If you still have a healthy amount of trades left, go for it. Walters for Sicily great trade, gain money and heaps of on field points

  15. Jordan says:

    Greene to McLean?

  16. Russty_ says:

    Hey guys, anyone trading Petracca out?…I'm thinking about it lol, not too happy with his scoring.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I'm keeping him, I've traded too many players due to injury and poor form already.

      • Russty_ says:

        Hi John, you're probably right..just don't know if he's premo material yet, and if not will probably have to be traded out eventually anyway.

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          I'll be happy to have him as my F6 at the end, I'm down to 20 trades, so now is the time to reign in the trading, I've done my correction trades (3) and hopefully most of my injury trades (3) for now. Time to double down this week and next to make use of the bubble boys, then look at the premos come the byes.

          • Russty_ says:

            Sounds like good sense John, who you bringing in this week mate?

            • JohnDJ59 says:

              Hi Russty, my two trades for this week are, Coffield to Duman and Walters to Spargo. Next week I will be looking at Mutch and Ronke.

              • Russty_ says:

                You looking to have a million bucks in the bank at round 9 John?..lol

                • JohnDJ59 says:

                  Yes, ready for my premo buying spree.

                  • TommyC99 says:

                    That sounds good In theory, but don’t you reckon it may cost you possible league matches along with ranking hits? In the 2-3 weeks you could have upgraded, but didn’t will cost you quite a lot of points

                    • Sc_Wow says:

                      Yeah it definitely will. People doing smart 1 up 1 downs will be getting premos in faster and still generating enough cash

                    • JohnDJ59 says:

                      Hi Tommy and Wow, I know I am going against what I normally do,I up 1 down, but my season is already toast, rank 28,862 compared to 5,470 this time last year and only 15pts less. So I thought I would try something different, go for the bubble boys when available, keep the cash generation going, look at the premos only when they have bottomed out. I have already conceded I will lose league matches and points for up to four weeks, but will have a war chest ready for picking the premos up during the byes.

              • Whatyasmokin says:

                Id be really analysing job security for all four of thosevand look at 2 or 3 of them at the very most.

              • neil demons delight says:

                i would be keeping Walters JOHN only 2-3 weeks

    • Ahmad rubas says:

      im not trading him if he isnt in this week he is certain to play for round 8 it seems and although he his scoring is not amazing i would have to trade billings first before petracca but im not trading him either. im taking a very conservative approach with 27 trades left i plan to start being a bit more aggresive come the bye rounds considering i didnt plan very well for my bye structure lol

      • Russty_ says:

        Hi Ahmad..how are you travelling rank-wise so far with having not traded much so far?
        Yeah must admit I don't plan too well for byes either but I'm starting to think about it more now, you can really slip down the rankings with 1 or 2 bad bye rounds.

        • Ahmad rubas says:

          My rank is terrible currently at 35k atm but I'm going to fix my 2 mistakes in the coming weeks and I will bring in titch round 8 and assess dusty after the north game once I bring those 2 in I'll need 3 more premo defenders 2 more premo forwards and a final premo midfielder

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Hey Russty, Tracca is av 85, was hoping for 90 – 95, so he's getting there, for what we paid for him that's not too bad, worth keeping for now, if he is your main problem then you are going alright.

      • Russty_ says:

        Hey John, yeah I came to my senses, just did Holman to Spargo and Bonner to Yeo…happy to be rid of Bonner and to acquire Yeo's services.
        Tracta could surprise us all and still average 100 at season's end 🙂 also, he was playing with a sore finger last week..lucky he didn't have to get it cut off!

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          Yeo before Hurley ?

          • Russty_ says:

            Yeh for sure mate, cheaper, higher ceiling too I think and that's with a 27 included. Also, Eagles are looking good this year and Bombers aren't.
            In the end, I'd like Hurley too though John.

            • JohnDJ59 says:

              I agree with the higher ceiling part, but going on that 27 could also have a bigger downside as well. Hurley seems nice and consistent a bit like Pendles who I am looking at as a mid POD.

              • Russty_ says:

                I think Yeo was used as a tagger that week, for some strange reason, don't think it'll happen again, other than that week, Yeo's been more consistent than Hurley.. by 10 points per week.

              • Russty_ says:

                Pendles is a sneaky pod pick this year…could end up doing what he has always done.

                • JohnDJ59 says:

                  I think so, I'm looking at him and Bont as my first upgrade in the mids, I like the fact they are hopefully playing in round 14. Pendles could be back to being Mr Dependable, getting those 100 -110 scores each week, Bont probably has a higher ceiling, but like Yeo could pull out some 70 -80 scores as well.

    • THE SALTSHAKER says:

      keeping petracca, trading walters > mclean, happy to trade him back in if showing form

    • Shake_n_Bake_ says:

      Have Henry as Emg Friday night, alot rides on that for me!

  17. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Great cheat sheet Damo! I like your ruck recommendations. I have them both.

    Time to burn another 2 trades this week.

    I will probably be shouted down again. But that is OK.

    Yes, it's true, I have decided to trade in James Sicily. (* Did not start with him)

    We all know he struggles to behave inside a lolly shop, let alone on the footy field, but the bloke can play some serious hardcore footy.

    At his current price of $448K and a BE of 33 you simply can not take notice.

    The downside risk is that he will have another onfield meltdown and cop another week or two. The upside is that he starts to "get it" and starts to show his footy prowess and let that do the behaving.

    Allen Christensen- OUT
    James Sicily- IN

    • Ahmad rubas says:

      yeah im tempted to bring him in as well his scoring potential is amazing considering the role he plays in the hawthorn side

    • Russty_ says:

      Shout shout!…lol jump on the Rollercoaster mate, had him from the start ..hope he pulls his head in from now on , who was your other trade this week?

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Hi Russty!

        Thanks mate! Still working on round two trades this week. Hint: Focus will be the backline.

        Cheers Russty!

        We WA boys think alike!

        • Russty_ says:

          Hey mate, I'm not sure what to do this week trade-wise, I have Bonner, Christensen, Hogan and Petracca, Hogan might miss too. Maybe I should double downgrade and bank up!

    • Brim_Cat says:

      Smart trade mate, after a lot of thought,i am also bringing sicily in. Fingers crossed he doesn't have another brain fade!!

  18. SC_Sixty_6 says:

    Lachie Neale vs Zach Merrett? What does the community think? Merrett is almost 20k cheaper so leaning towards him, but both are bargains at the current price's

    • ATeam12345 says:

      I'm in the same predicament…. Either of those 2 would only cost me 1 trade.
      Cripps would cost me 2 (up down)

    • Brim_Cat says:

      Couldnt go wrong with either, id pick zerrett personally

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Neale please Id rather less have merrett.

    • THE SALTSHAKER says:

      depends whose better for your byes, bombers had tough training session apparently very physical trying to turn year around

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Get your own name flog.

  19. Corey says:

    Walters To McLean?
    Or Hold leaving me with three onfield rookies

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Hi Corey. Nice trade mate.

      Walters will miss plenty of weeks. His injured knee was already strapped on game day.

      There are SERIOUS issues with that knee. I would not be surprised if he needs a knee reconstruction.

      • Russty_ says:

        Has his diagnosis changed from the 2-3 weeks Hawk?..haven't been keeping up with the news lately.

        • Derek says:

          I’m with TH. Did the knee last year, clearly hurt same knee, it not fixed, long season ahead, I’d be worried if I had him.

  20. Tommo says:

    Who do I trade Tom Lynch to?
    Can afford anyone

    • Russty_ says:

      Post you fwd line Tommo..that'll help with suggestions from others.

      • Tommo says:

        Buddy Heeney Petracca Lynch Christensen Guelfi (Fritsch Henry)

        • Russty_ says:

          I reckon Mclean's a good pick ..good chance Petracca misses this week also, so Fritsch will have to be onfield..maybe Henry too if Buddy misses again. (Buddy listed as 1-2 weeks)
          Carnage fwd line mate, my sympathies.

          • Tommo says:

            I’m liking McLean at the moment. He’s playing quite well and has a consistent role

            Thanks for the advice

    • Derek says:

      Get the other Tom Lynch. If your lucky it might not cost you a trade 😉

      • Russty_ says:

        I had the other Lynch last year and he was doing well, until he got redhaired fever and got sick!

    • Brim_Cat says:

      Mclean (Safer) or Sicily (Value) i reckon Tommo

  21. TheBenchmark25 says:

    Thinking I might have to throw omeara out the door. He did his job and made over 100k whilst throwing a nice 145 in a timely round. Poor BE and many nice plump premiums on the rise
    Time to go shopping
    21 trades left after using two this round and 5 rookies left on field and billings not exactly a keeper 150k in the bank
    How's everyone else looking with trades and rookies on field

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I've been busy with correction and injury trades so still have nine rookies on field, twenty trades left, building my war chest ready for getting in premos during the byes.

    • Russty_ says:

      Hi Bench..I'm currently fielding 6 rookies and have 22 trades left after this week, yeah unfortunately you could probably count Billings as a rookie lately.

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Yep omeara straight to Cripps for me cant ignore his scoring when hes in form.

  22. Willy says:

    Thoughts appreciated on team after trading Banfield > Duman & Billings > Cripps (21 trades rem./125 k in bank)
    DEFENDERS
    R. Laird K. Simpson T. Doedee
    S. Murray A. Naughton D. Mirra
    Bench- L. Murphy//T. Duman
    MIDFIELDERS
    P. Dangerfield// N. Fyfe//D. Martin
    T. Mitchell//P. Cripps//C. Oliver
    S. Coniglio//T. Kelly
    Bench- J. Finlayson//N. Holman//D. Barry
    RUCKS
    M. Gawn//S. Martin
    Bench- L. Lavender
    FORWARDS
    I. Heeney// D. Smith//J. Sicily
    B. Fritsch//J. Henry//Z. Giles-Langdon
    Bench- C. Petracca// J. Higgins

    • Russty_ says:

      Giday Willy, your Mids are strong but your Backs and Forwards are a bit thin still mate..especially your backs.
      I reckon I'd paint the fence with Holman to Spargo (gives you a fwd swinger) and Murray to a premo, maybe Hurley or Yeo.
      Maybe get Higgins onfield too over Henry.

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Finlayson should be on field has been scoring well. Forwardline looks most thin to me as rookies have been scoring reasonably in the backline.

      • Willy says:

        The only problem is that forwards are a bit volatile and unclear at the moment (except for Gray who I'll pick up after the bye). Wouldn't mind for the dust to settle and to pick them up in 3-4 weeks time just pre-bye, when it emerges who is definitely going to be worth picking up- (i.e. Buddy when he's back from injury)
        Might hold Billings for now and upgrade Murray to Hurley now instead(?)

  23. StevoRivo says:

    Best mid trade in this week out of the below?

    Oliver, M.Crouch, Selwood, Zerret, Bont, Pendles, JPK?

    • Corey says:

      Zerrett

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      This week, either Pendles or Bont.

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Zerrett, Selwood, Oliver, Pendles, Crouch, JPK, Bont. My order of best picks this week looking at predicted performance and a large emphasis on value.

      • StevoRivo says:

        Zerrett concussion affected form does concern me. Great value now though. Perhaps I stick to Zerrett now and Crouch next week?

        • Whatyasmokin says:

          His 3 round average is 110 which is in line with last year? Hes a bargain people have doubted him many times and regretted it!

    • Russty_ says:

      Got a feeling Pendles isn't done yet..has been flying under the radar, all good choices though…not sure whether JPK is past his best or not.

      • Whatyasmokin says:

        Yep liking the low ownership of Pendles and Selwood…….but are they yesterday's heroes of SC? Time will tell both great options

        • StevoRivo says:

          Yeah not sure they can last the season but good value picks right now. Still leaning to the value in Zerrett if it helps me get to Crouch next week.

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Neale

    • Shake_n_Bake_ says:

      Consider the bye rds alot of rd 14 players there.

  24. Hinch says:

    Beautiful community, assistance required!

    Walters… I have both Crowden and Giles-Langdon on the bench as cover. I have 24 trades left after doing one this week (J. Kelly to Treloar due to holding Kelly long enough and he’s still going to be a couple of weeks I think)

    Walters hold, now he’s Down to 2-3 weeks and not 3-4, or trade for someone like McLean?

    And if I hold, should my other trade be looking to get Cole in? Is cole a must have rookie? I’d Probably cut Coffield for him.

    • Russty_ says:

      Hi Hinch, not sure if Cole is a must have..he's expensive so won't make a huge amount of cash, Walters to Mclean will keep the good points coming in and he's round 14 bye friendly. Depends on if you're playing for rank or leagues, if it's rank, trade, and if Leagues you could wait and see how he recovers. Bear in mind Walters has missed a lot of games from injury.

      • Corey says:

        Another thing to add with Walters is following the round 14 bye depending on how many games he’s played, he would have dropped a very large amount, closer to 400K a great upgrade target to complete your side

        • Russty_ says:

          For sure Corey, I'll be targeting him later in the season if he's banging out good scores and stays fit.

  25. TommyC99 says:

    Thoughts on these trades?
    Banfield – Duman
    Holman – Oliver

    Was going to go Cripps due to his bye but Oliver is too hard to ignore and still has a decent bye (only got cogs with same bye in mids)

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Pretty solid expect Holman to be a slow burn if wanting more cash out of him plus he has the bye.

  26. What_Bear says:

    Hi guys,

    Need some community advice improve my team. 24 trades and 94K in the bank

    Def: Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray (Coffield, Murphy)
    Mids: Danger, Dusty, Mitchell, Fyfe, Cripps, Coniglio, Kelly, Holeman ( Garlett, Banfield, Barry)
    Ruck: Gawn, Nank (Olango
    Fwds: Heeney, Billings, Sicily, Fritch, Higgins, Guelfi (Greene, Henry)

    I would like to add a forward, but can's see a rookie worth moving on

    Maybe Garlett to duman, via DPP to free up some cash, but not sold on job security.

    This week is making my brain hurt

    • Russty_ says:

      Easy mate…get rid of Greene for Mclean..and look to get another forward in next week, you can't have 2 rookies onfield in the fwd line..let alone 3., or get rid of Garlett also this week for Spargo, you could play him onfield.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      If it was my team I would be downgrading Greene to Spargo and upgrading Garlett to either Oliver, Pendles or Bont.

      • What_Bear says:

        If Garlett isn't picked, it opens up a nice loophole with Holeman and Banfield. I can work with that.

    • What_Bear says:

      Thanks for the advice all. Wanted to hold Greene, but not knowing how long he will likely miss is probably what is hurting my head 🙂 Time to sleep on it, but looking like Bye Bye Tobias!!!!!

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        The trades that Brim and Russty recommended work as well, couldn't go wrong with either.

        • Russty_ says:

          Yours are valid too John, he could also take Holman out instead of Garlett if Garlett's named.

  27. bambam says:

    Going Macrae over Danger. Feels all kind of wrong but Macrae is average 10 more and 45k cheaper. Can he keep it up?

  28. Goose says:

    Thinking along the same lines. Was looking at Danger but Macrae and even Joel Selwood are interesting to select.
    If Danger shakes his niggles his ceiling as we know is massive, question is does he get back to his best this year or not. Maybe wait another week and re assess, he will drop a little further in price

  29. Ja191 says:

    Hey community, have Walters was thinking going either
    1 – Garlett to spargo, banfield up to cripps
    2 – Walters to mclean, banfield to a midfielder 540k or less
    Will leave me with 21 trades going for rank, thanks a lot!

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Going for rank gotta ditch Walters I reckon. Selwood is only 530k.

  30. Westy says:

    Current team has some forward injury issues (not as bad as some) so it will be interesting to see what comes out in the team lists.

    Laird, Savage, Hibberd, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray (Murphy, Keeffe)
    Fyfe, Martin, Mitchell, Macrae, Cripps, Conliglio, Kelly, Holman (Brayshaw, Banfield, Barry)
    Gawn, Nankervis (English)
    Hogan, D Smith, Waterman, Henry, Higgins (just you wait), Guelfi (Franklin, Deledio)

    $385K in bank and 23 trades.

    I have a nasty feeling Hogan will miss and I'll cop a donut in the forwards.

    Will Keeffe finally get on field with Deledio out? Could bring in Cole there. Without the FWD issue, I'd have gone
    OUT Brayshaw, Keeffe
    IN Merrett, Cole or Duman

    But now I'm tempted more to lose one of Hogan, Deledio or Franklin for a McLean or Robinson. I don't want Sicksilly because his anger issues are more likely to break out than Deledio's body is to break down. 😉 I just think Deledio has a lot more to give this year.

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Deledio will miss more games through injury than sicily will lose through suspension, and he's top flog these days.

      Great player with lots of skill, otherwise wouldnt be playing right now, sadly hasnt produced over 18 games in a season since 2013.

      Only 4 games last year, 11 the year before………you get the picture.

      • Westy says:

        Despite his floggishness, and partly because Guelfi was out as well, I eventually picked Sicily to replace Deledio. Can't really pass him up averaging over 100 at 448K when there are so few FWDs or DEFs cracking the ton.
        The other out is Banfield for Z Merrett.

  31. TommyC99 says:

    So was going to go Oliver, but have been seeing a bit of talk about Pendles and as a pies man, the proposition of putting him in my side is real tempting. Someone convince me that I should take Oliver pls lol

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Take Pendels

      • TommyC99 says:

        Why’s that?

        • Sc_Wow says:

          Because you want to. They are both good players. Have another think about it and decide.

          • TommyC99 says:

            Fair enough. My only issue is that Oliver is probably guaranteed top 10, Pendles not so much

            • Dildor says:

              Odds are you're not winning 50K anyway (nothing against you just probability), so pick players that you love to watch. Supercoach makes games more interesting because you have some investment in players. If you LOVE watching pendlebury read the play in slow motion and pick his way through traffic like a pigeon on the west gate then by all means pick him, the difference in 20 weeks time probably wont be massively significant anyway.

              • TommyC99 says:

                Cheers for the response mate. You do make a great point. And Pendles scoring should improve since the pies look a lot Better than last year.

    • Steeeve says:

      It's funny, this was my toss up in the preseason. Went Oliver and am glad I did, but Pendles has been exactly what I thought he'd be. POD too.

      • Derek says:

        Adams has been out for a few weeks. I think his return will affect Pendles

        • TommyC99 says:

          With Adams in the side, he still basically scored 3 tons (one was a 99). Only issue is a low ceiling. Although Oliver ant have the highest of ceilings either

  32. StevoRivo says:

    Need some help Community. Trade time. 26 trades & $265k.

    Laird, Hibberd, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, Naughton (Coffield, Keefe);
    Danger, Fyfe, Martin, Titch, Cripps, Cogs, Petracca, T. Kelly (Banfield, Holman, Garlett);
    Gawn, NicNat (Olango);
    Heeney, Lambert, Smith, Sicily, Fritsch, Higgins (Henry, Langdon).

    Thinking Langon & Banfield to Zerrett & Duncan via DPP swings. Then somehow look to get Crouch next week. But just not sure I’m targeting the right area given the 2 x fwd rooks and defence rooks. I know the aim of the game is to premo mids first.

    Any thoughts always appreciated.

    • StevoRivo says:

      Trade or hold re above community?

      • Doc says:

        Not sure if you'd have enough cash but you could go Banfield and Langdon to Hurley/Yeo/Simmo and Spargo via Finlayson DPP. That would leave Spargo forward though but if you wanted him in the mids just swing Petracca forward when you trade Langdon.

        • StevoRivo says:

          Thanks Doc. Have the cash to do it. Nervous going early on Spargo (though he would go to the bench). Hurley or Yeo?

    • Derek says:

      Langdon a good chance to play. Hold him.

      If Garlet not named, has to go.

      • StevoRivo says:

        Agree Derek. Garlett has been 💩

        • Derek says:

          Had him onfield once this year. You can guess which week it was, same week that Holman was on my bench for the first time.

          • JohnDJ59 says:

            I feel your pain Derek, I did the same thing. What were we thinking.

  33. Daniel says:

    Hey Community!
    In need of some trade help.

    I have 24 trades left & $288k in the bank. Team below

    Laird, Hurley, Savage, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, (Naughton, Murphy);
    Danger, Fyfe, Martin, Titch, Cripps, Oliver, T.Kelly, Holman (Banfield, Coffield, Barry);
    Gawn, NicNat (Olango);
    McLean, Smith, Billings, Fritsch, Fisher, Guelfi (Henry, Langdon).

    I'd really like to add another premo in DEF or FWD but Merrett is good value so not sure I should miss that boat.

    My concern is that i'll be near full premo in the mids with Merrett but still needing 3 FWD (possibly 4 i Billings doesn't improve) and 3 DEF

    Thoughts community?

    Cheers

    • DavidC says:

      The two best bubble boys are in the backline so downgrade Murray or Naughton and then upgrade Holman. Can get someone like Heeney and move him forward later or Zerrett.

      • Daniel says:

        Swinging in Heeney is a good option I hadn't considered as i feel that while Merrett is great value there will be other great MIDs that will pop up.

        Any overwhelming reason for holman over coffield to downgrade? I know Holman is playing out of position atm but is that likely to change and is coffields score of 24 an issue?

        • dale says:

          personally i dont mind holman with a BE of 35 still I'd move on barry his JS is shaky and cant score more than 40 on his good days. that for holman is a bad day its not like nicks BE is 60 odd if he can pump out a 75+ watch his BE go down again, but just my opinion.
          maybe go naughton/ murray down to duman or cole (cole is pricey but has solid JS hard to put a price on that)
          & barry to merrett (terrific value).

          • Daniel says:

            I also don't mind Holman so I am thinking Banfield & Coffield out, Duman & one of Heeney/Merrett/Mundy/Robinson (robo is probably a trap) in.

    • Derek says:

      Take the value when it is presented.

      Nothing wrong with have a deep midfield, good point scoring potential, name of the game.

      I’ve already got 8 premium mids. Merrett at M8.

      • neil demons delight says:

        Did you trade KELLY ?

        • Octa says:

          Yes he did Neil.
          Is there a spot in the Demons team for Spargo when Viney re5urns?

        • Derek says:

          Merrett took Kelly’s place.

          One man down, another takes him place.

          It was always my plan to go hard in the guts, get some points generating and see what happens.

  34. Sam says:

    Oliver & 80k left over
    Merrett & 150k left over

    Oliver would be traded in eventually I think anyway for Kelly last sport before bye, thoughts ?

    • Ja191 says:

      Oliver will be top 8 merrett will score well but will cop the tag and score poorly some weeks. I'd jump on oliver

    • judd0 says:

      I think Merrett now, Oliver later.

      Just be wary they do have the same bye.

      • DavidSA says:

        Merrett the best option M8 for leagues will help you get the top 6-8 defenders and forward options later on taking the extra coin.

  35. blakeyboi says:

    L Davies-uniacke – higgins
    N Holman – mirra via coff

  36. KSinny says:

    Thinking of downgrading Murray to either Spargo or Ronke via Keefe dpp, who would you suggest out of the two? Then I'll upgrade banfield to anyone I like. Thoughts?

    • Doc says:

      NDD reckons Spargo will stay in the team for a while and Ronke will probs go out when Buddy is back so I'd go Spargo

      • dazzler says:

        flip of the coin. swans love ronke's fwd pressure they bought him in for his tackling. i think he will hang round for a while.
        I'm going spargo purely for DPP

  37. Steeeve says:

    Danger into Gawn and if you don't end up with a good captain's score well that's terrible luck. Good week to just go with logic.

    • Logic says:

      Logic is Mitchell into Gawn.
      Danger hasn't quite been himself

    • JugHead says:

      Agree…….but……..I do see a tiny risk. Grundy has shin soreness after two close back to back games.
      My rucks are Gawn and Nank. They both played mid week then the following weekend too.
      I'm sure they are well managed but If ever there was a week for Grundy, Gawn or Nank to have a quiet one, this might be it.
      Gawn will probably punch out another big number, but I'm less confident than normal. The question is, if he doesn't smash the opposition again, what is just an "average"score for him? …..115? I don't know.

  38. John says:

    Macrae vs Oliver

  39. Sellars1226 says:

    What's the situation on M Crouch? Is he set to drop again this week? If so my trades this week will be

    Brayshaw/Kent to Higgins/Spargo which leaves me 264K to get him in next week

    But if not thinking Brayshaw and Kent to JPK and Spargo

    • DavidSA says:

      BE 182 says he will drop another 38k but I reckon he will score well this week and maybe drop 20-25k max.

      • Sellars1226 says:

        What do ya reckon should I get him in next week or trade in JPK this week?

        • KSinny says:

          Wait and get Crouch

          • dazzler says:

            agree you have to wait on crouch. he will still finish a top 8 mid on average i reckon

        • TommyC99 says:

          In the same situation, im waiting for crouch

          • Steeeve says:

            If there are two good downgrade options next week (say Spargo and Ronke) I'll grab Crouch the week after that. Should drop after this game and then won't shoot up too high surely.

  40. dale says:

    DEF: Laird, Hibbo, Bonner, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray (murray naughton)

    MIDS: Danger, Dusty, TMitch, Fyfe, Oliver, Coniglio, T.Kelly, Holman (Banfield Brayshaw Barry)

    RUCK: NicNat Gawn (Olango)

    FWD: Heeney, McLean, Smith, Sicily, Fritsch, Guelfi (ZGL Henry)

    unsure on my trades i like the look of cole. rock solid JS but feel my cows are still fattening up down back…

    Patients wearing thin with barry i think I could go early on one or even two of Worpel, spargo, mutch and even ronke so i can get the two i don't get now next week on the bubble ideally you want 3 of them 4 before there rise if they keep there places they all look solid..
    I hate going a week early but in this case i think its almost worth it two get others next week…

    would love some fresh ideas on what to do my brains frying here so would love a fresh outlook on it all.

    Hi Community
    Any crows fans know if Murphy has been playing in the 2,s.
    No mention of him by Barron.
    Got O'conner as well and with injuries mounting up getting nervous with the byes approaching.

  42. blakeyboi says:

    L Davies-uniacke – cole

  43. Laird Lad Donuts says:

    Westhoff or Mundy for my last Forward upgrade?

    • INPieman says:

      I'd have a look at Westhoff with Ryder in the team first

      • Laird Lad Donuts says:

        A lot of people have been saying that! but a few points first
        1. Ryder was in the team round 1 where he scored 68 and got injured i can't remember how far into the game but he still scored a 68 and Westhoff scored a 140, he's second highest score this year WITH Ryder in the team
        2. When is Ryder expected to come back

        • Derek says:

          Ryder might play this week.

          Who has been rucking for Port? Dixon or Westoff? It will definitely affect both of them.

          • Laird Lad Donuts says:

            Think Westhoff has been playing more midfield time this year, but i think they both share the load

        • Phil says:

          Depends on several things mostly regarding bye rounds.
          1.Are you making the trade right now? If yes, do you already have Robbie Gray. If yes, pick Mundy unless…..
          You already have 2 or more forward premiums with the same bye as Mundy (ie Billings, Heeney, Franklin)

          If you can wait till after Round 10, Westhoff becomes the better option (plus you get to see how he goes with Ryder)
          There's not much between the 2 for mine.

    • Simo036 says:

      The Hoff

      • Laird Lad Donuts says:

        Over Mundy? Are you worried westhoffs scoring might go down when ryder is in or do you agree with my point earlier

        • Lazza says:

          I’d be more worried about Mundy.. he rarely scores big… maybe 2 or 3 times a season ..Mundy’s BE is 108.. he’s only topped that once this year.. Hoff’s BE is 51.
          They are both DPP.. and both have toned up 4 times … so no advantage there.. except Hoff has gone bigger.
          Mundy’s will get more mid action with Walters out … whilst Hoff’s role won’t change much.. even when Ryder comes back because Dixon filled most of Ryder’s role.

  44. Placey1 says:

    Hi Guys.
    I'm upgrading Banfield for Macrae and Walters to Spargo. This is my only chance to get Macrae in before he rises in price. Was thinking instead to trade out Billings for Sicily. Thoughts??

  45. Doc says:

    I've decided to trade out Toby "I punch midgets" Green as well as Banfield but have 2 options that I'd like to communities help with.

    Option 1 – Green+Banfield out, Macrae+Oliver in, $144k in the bank.
    OR
    Option 2 – Green+Banfield out, Macrae/Oliver+Duman/Cole in, $540-670k in the bank.

    Was originally set on option 1 but now realising how much cash I could still have for a Bang Bang to Oliver and Dusty next week I'm beginning to like option 2. Anyway your thoughts are most welcome, cheers

    • KSinny says:

      Do the double upgrade this week then a downgrade and upgrade next week.

      • dazzler says:

        option 1 for me.
        dont like durmans JS. Cole looks okay but dont like his price…
        can't go wrong with ya two premos in oliver and macrae

    • Derek says:

      Money in bank costs you points.

    • Brim_Cat says:

      Option 1 for sure

    • Doc says:

      Thank you very much lads, was my gut feeling, nice to get it reinforced. Love you lots boys❤️

  46. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    To trade Walters to hold Walters this seems to be the question of the week.

    Ans? Stuffed if I know as i have Walters the reduction in time causing havoc going from 4 plus to 2-3 even a rumour back rd 8 has really got the ol' grey matter working overtime!

    Like anyone else can trade only 2 options I see for my team are sicily or mundy.

    Or

    Keep. Trade banfield or holman to spargo (seems to be the lad the community thinks will score well and hold his spot) and then trade Murray to Sicily. Condarnit $3k short of going banfield and holman using finlyson DPP.

    Think I will keep holman one more week as only has 35 b/e but put him on the bench. Up to Crouch next week. Could go bigger than banfield who is good for a 60.

    If keep have spargo, crowden, Fritsch or Henry at F6. Using DPP with Walters of course.

    Inside top 1000 if that helps or hinders?

    Insert thinking music….

    • DavidSA says:

      I got elivator music instead
      Gotta keep Walters I reckon. Only going to reduce your cash gen and increase time it will take to go full Premo

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        If you traded in a rookie for him, wouldn't that increase your cash generation,? although it would take longer to get to full premo.

      • Josh says:

        Although it may take a little longer to get to full premo by trading Walters, the advantage of trading in another premium is you will have a 30-40 point increase in points scored weekly over the rookie that would have been fielded in Walters place. This 120 (3×40) or so points gained would be worth the extra week or two used to get to full premium. As you are in the top 1000, I would trade him out as long as you haven't wasted too many trades.

      • Connor says:

        Actually I think if you trade Walters and spend $50k and get him back when his price drops it might be a $50-80k upgrade straight from a rookie – essentially totals what you would pay to get someone like R.Gray in from a rookie but minus the downgrade

    • Shake_n_Bake_ says:

      Had a good look at ur side last week Trigg. Im sort of in the same boat as yourself. What im doing is reeling on Henry as my emg Friday night. Hoping to hold of on trades this week then paint the fence in rd 8.

    • The Ranger says:

      Been chewing over this all week Trigga.
      I'm torn between trading him out for Mundy or Sicily or holding.
      I'll obviously wait until teams drop but right now I'm going to hold and double downgrade some rooks this week.
      I might take a points hit but it will enable me to paint the fence for the next two weeks or perhaps even double upgrade next week.
      Lots of talk about the upcoming rookies but I don't see great JS for most of those one gamers.

  47. Whitey says:

    If your keen to keep a bit more cash, you could look at Selwood or Merrett.

  48. DavidSA says:

    3 Saints defenders all averaging 90+ Roberton ruled out for the year Saints getting clipped inside 50's Against
    1 or 2 of these guys will most likely stay in the 90-100 range starting to think too much lol

  49. red5 says:

    Who to trade in for Bonner?
    Option 1: Duman, then I can get Mitchell
    Option 2: Cole, then I could get a player like Zach Merrett , Oliver, Pendlebury, Toby McLean etc.

  50. anthdepa says:

    I have 497,000 in the bank and was looking to get rid of Banfield and Naughton for Macrae and Hurn but I fall -27,000 short pretty disappointed,was looking to go big with trades this week as I've been trading my way up for this. I dropped from ranking 6,000 to 15,000 and am looking for a high ranking this year as I'm not in many strong leagues. Any tips on a different upgrade I could do? This is my team so far – DEF (Laird, Savage, Naughton, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray) – Coffield, Mirra

    MID ( Mitchell, Martin, Fyfe, J.Kelly, Parker, Coniglio, T.Kelly, Holman) – Banfield, Barry, Brayshaw

    RUCK (GAWN, NANK) – Cameron

    FWD (Heeney, Franklin, McLean, Smith, Fritsch, Guelfi) – Henry, Giles-Langdon

    • anthdepa says:

      Might trade Murray instead of Naughton,with Murray nearly reaching his breakevens.

      • Dildor says:

        Cripps or oliver instead of macrae could work? Similar scoring outputs

      • Holty01 says:

        If u want macrae i agree with trading Murray. He has almost peaked and it seems Naughton still has a bit more money to make.

  51. CFC says:

    Chatlie Curnow not playing this week. He has an ankle injury, happened during training.

  52. MRose says:

    Danger or Cripps this week

    • lachy says:

      lol

      • lachy says:

        apologies MRose i misread your post i thought it said danger to* cripps this week haha that is why i lol'd
        jokes on me!

    • Russty_ says:

      I'd wanna get Danger in while he's still affordable. He has to start being the regular Danger soon, aka 130+ every week.

  53. Steeeve says:

    Petracca 50/50. Be 'handy' if he played

    • Derek says:

      No way he will play. That finger sounded real nasty

      • Tibor says:

        They keep talking about it being a fitness issue in that he has been laying about on his fat arse for a week rather than the finger being the problem now. I would think given the two quick turnarounds due to the Anzac game the rest would be a good thing. Put a band aid on the finger and have a Panadol and a teaspoon of harden the f up

  54. Steeeve says:

    Seeing a lot of Oliver v (player/s)
    Choose the other person, not Oliver.
    Thanks!
    Sincerely, all of us Oliver owners.

    • Derek says:

      Yes. I agree. Don’t. (Good one Steeeve). Get Oliver… I mean, don’t Get Oliver.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I think they are only saying that because he is still dropping in price, better to get him once he has bottomed. I already have him and am happy to have him in my team.

    • Tibor says:

      Cmon Steve you can do better get a bit of an injury rumour going, tell em he's got op, or something rangas are susceptible to

  55. bloodsarmy says:

    Lads,

    Currently 486 overall with 26 trades remaining and $124k in the bank. Team is as follows:

    B: Laird, Hurley, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, Mirra (L.Murphy, B.Mihocek)
    M: Danger, Fyfe, Dusty, Mitchell, Cripps, Coniglio, Merret, T.Kelly (Holman, Cunico, D.Barry)
    R: Gawn, Natanui
    F: R.Gray, Heeney, Sicily, McLean, Gowers, Guelfi (Giles-Langdon, L.Ryan)

    Thinking of trading out Murray & L.Murphy for Duman & Webster/Hurn.

    Alternatively I can trade Murray & L.Ryan for Mitch Robinson & Duman/Webster.

    Thoughts?

  56. Sc_Wow says:

    Anyone with C Curnow, he’s out

  57. Frozen water bomber says:

    Was determined to trade holman and banfield this week, but now i am thinking moving murray first might be the smarter option, what are peoples thoughts on this?

    • Simo036 says:

      I did the exact same thing Mr Eskimo.

      • Frozen water bomber says:

        What did you decide simo? Tough decision, im thinking murray goes so i can get mclean, otherwise will have to get siciflog…

        • Simo036 says:

          I went Murray to Duman and then Banfield to Neale, leaving me $200K for next week

          • Frozen water bomber says:

            Yeah smart move, ill probably trade murray and banfield. Thanks mate

  58. Phil says:

    Only reason I could think of to do this would be so you can afford the premium you really want. Although Murray's breakeven is higher than the other 2, he is also probably more likely to hit it

    • Phil says:

      Sorry that was a reply to Frozen water bomber

    • Frozen water bomber says:

      Thats been my thought process all week, was going to bring sicily in, but if i trade murray i can get mclean. I really am torn on this one

  59. Jake says:

    Thoughts in Walters then?
    I can upgrade to a McLean. Or swap walters to the midfield and upgrade him to Mcrae? Any other options?

  60. Maverick_ says:

    Can anybody maybe a st kilda supporter shed some light on this jimmy webster character?
    Why do i know so little about him and will Dyl Robertson out for the year help JW or could a role change come with this?
    could be my replacement for Bonner

    • Frozen water bomber says:

      His output will definitely improve, not too sure he is a top 6 defender come years end, could be a nice POD at d6 though

    • Marty says:

      Saints supporter here. Webster has been in and out of the side. I would wait a week or two and see if he can string a few good scores together before committing.

    • Tibor says:

      He's battling to get a regular game at St Kilda. How are St Kilda going? What does this tell you. There will be plenty of better options

    • Russty_ says:

      Hey Mav, he's never averaged more than 71 in 5 years or so, he's having a good season so far though, and Roberton being out for the rest of the year should mean his job security is better but I wouldn't like to depend on someone like him to be all that consistent for you.

  61. Brady says:

    26 trades left
    BANK – 297K

    DEF – Laird, Hurley, Finlayson, Dodee, Mcgrath, Murray | Mirra, Murphy.

    MID – Dusty, Mitchell, Fyfe, Coniglio, Merrett, Whitfield, Kelly, Holman | Garlett, Clarke, Styles

    RUCK – Gawn, Sandi | Olango

    FWD – Heeney, Walters(!), Smith, Billings, Raynar, Guelfi | Fritsch, Langdon

    Hold or trade Walters?
    Thinking of downgrading McGrath (break even of 91) to Cole. Bank a load of cash. It will take my bank to $451k.

    Can then upgrade(?) Walter's to any forward (mclean/gray) or swap him to the midfield and upgrade to a Mcrae?

    • Maverick_ says:

      G'day brady.
      You can trade walters if you like but i don't think its a must. best option would be mclean though he will be a top 6-8 fwd.
      Im going off track a little here from what you asked but Im more worried about your cash generation . eg. murphy, clarke, styles & garlett you need to get some cash flowing. maybe look at moving 1 if not 2 of these on this week otherwise definately next week to spargo, mutch. ronke & worpel.

      • Brady says:

        Thanks for the info!
        Yep I have a few in line. I have a plan in getting in my promos hence the cash generation I already have in my kitty/making for my kitty to upgrade over the team. The mid prices under performing like McGrath are who I'm relying on to downgrade possibly. I have a decent amount of trades as I'm aware I will have to downgrade a maxed out rookie and then to upgrade a maxed out rookie (I guess that's the luxury we have with so many well performing rookies I guess) not Ideal I know as it would be good to upgrade both at the same time. But I'm looking at holman to danger next week for example which would take a fair chunk of the kitty.
        Styles is in my team as a def/mid purely as a swing with finlayson when I need and hopefully for the byes. Same with garlett with the mid/fwd.
        Those 3 rookies and Cole are who 8 have in mind over the next 1-2 weeks.

        • Maverick_ says:

          Yeah fair call mate. Sounds like you have a solid game plan then. If your going cole it has to be this week far to expensive next round he will be 210k+ . I started danger unfortunately for me! I wouldn’t rush into him till he starts to turn his form round

          • Brady says:

            A plan I hope that works bar any injurys or shock omissions. Yeah McGrath is tipped to drop to 280 odd this week. Rather bank on him now and get Cole as Cole looks solid in that west coast backline and is scoring the same if not better than McGrath. Yeah McGrath could turn and start pumping out 85+but it's a risk I'm happy to take with what has been shown so far.
            Oh stiff mate!I ran the risk with not getting him, looks like he should be basement price next week. Think his scores will start pumping out from tonight so good luck!

  62. ???????? says:

    Need help i have 23 trades and 645k feedback would help 🙂

    laird, yeo, finalysion, doedee, murray,bonner ( naughton, murphy)

    fyfe, dusty, cripps, mitchell, coniglio, kelly, banfield, holman, ( coffield, barry, brodie)

    gawn, nic nat, ( cameron)

    heeney, smith, petracca, billings, firstch,crowden ( fogarty, ahern)

    • Ben says:

      I would be trading out Bonner and Coffield. Lot's of options. Maybe Bonner down to Duman and Coffield to Danger (or any other premo mid you prefer)

    • Maverick_ says:

      I'd upgrade bonner i think to a simpson or hurley both going to be top 6 defenders.
      second trade could be either holman/banfield to a merrett?
      Spend that cash so your not bleeding points.
      next week double downgrade to start your cash gen again there is 3 or 4 on the bubble next week worthy of a look

  63. Koby Tyers says:

    Hi community.
    I want to strengthen my defence, so I need to trade Naughton, Doedee or Murray. The latter has the highest BE of 54 so he is the one I suppose in order to get Hurley, Yeo, Simpson or Witherden.
    Any thoughts?

  64. Fearthebeard says:

    Patrick Cripps or
    Jack Macrae?

    • Holty01 says:

      Id go Cripps because he is a contested beast and when he does get tagged he still scores ok. Macrae will be tagged at somepoint and much easier to tag someone who plays on the outside. Still both of them wont let you down.

      • r_calve says:

        cripps is cheaper, higher cieling and the only a grader in carlton
        he may attract tags but he has been tagged twic and got 90 so that isnt too bad
        cripps for me

  65. Lovekids says:

    Who are the kids on the bubble this week?
    Anyone thinking Ronke….

    • seen_burns says:

      Think about Ronke next week

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Not worth getting in a one game player, wait till he's named next week for his third game, plus you will have a better idea about how much he should go up in price.

    • Brim_Cat says:

      Duman/cole on bubble. Only look at ronke/spargo if desperate for forward rookie

  66. Crowboy94 says:

    Mirra and Guelfi are out guys!

    • Lazza says:

      But ZGL playing and Garlett back in…

    • Tibor says:

      Mirra could be a hold for more cash generation. He should be back next week or the week after when Sicily has flog incident three

  67. gator59 says:

    Mirra and Guelfi both omitted

  68. Declan says:

    No lachie Murphy

  69. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    Garlett named as is Patracca

  70. Defying_Madness says:

    Keefe you hero saving me from a donut. Mirra and Guelfi killing me

  71. r_calve says:

    VC – gibbs
    C – fyfe

    yeah or nah,and is walters for heeney a good trade

    • Lazza says:

      Walters to Heeney is good, but I’m holding Walters… thank heavens for J Garlett… else donut this week.

  72. Sc_Wow says:

    Billings to go big this weekend

  73. HectorY says:

    Damon recommends Witherden. Might trade Naughton for him. What do you think forum.

    • Sc_Wow says:

      He’s pretty expensive

      • JugHead says:

        Agree. I like the kid. But I liked him more at 465k. Having said that, if you think he could be in the best 6 defenders at the end of the year he might be worth the current price. I would have given him a chance of being best 6, but he plays at Brisbane.
        Like the old saying. Hard to fly like an eagle when you are surrounded by turkeys

    • Danners says:

      Suppose it depends who you have. Would probably take a Hurley/Simpson over him, but good be a good POD

  74. Willymack1234 says:

    Surely Crameri playing means danger spends more time in the middle

    • JugHead says:

      Depends if they are trying to manage Dangers workload. Wouldnt be surprised to see him get a weeks rest when Gaz comes back.

  75. FearTheBeard says:

    Ffs fritsch likely to get a game this weekend or won't make the cut?

    • Sc_Wow says:

      He’s pretty sore apparently

      • Lazza says:

        Oh sh1t WowW.. if he is I’m stuffed … I’ll have to trade in Scillyflog instead of Martin/Cripps/Cogs/Macrae in the guts.

      • Frozen water bomber says:

        Where did you here this wow? Need 1 of him or tracca to play…

      • Frozen water bomber says:

        Source wow?

    • JugHead says:

      Can only wait and see. He didn't play the mid week game. Must be a chace to play if one of the 22 is sore. He played well enough to hold his spot last round.

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      He played very well last week. He's just had a rest.

  76. Ryan says:

    In need of some serious help community.

    I want to keep Walters but dont know if it fits my structure.

    DEF: Lairad, Hurley, Finlayson, Doedee, Murrary, Nuaghton (murphy, O'connor)

    MID: Danger, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Oliver, Zmerret, Kelly, Holman

    Ruck: Gawn, Nic Nat ( English)

    FWD: Heeney, Mclean, Walters, Billings, Fritsch, Garlett ( Guelfi, Veneables)

    I have 25 Trades left with 56k in the bank.

    Let me know your thoughts community!

  77. Hayden says:

    To trade out Walters or hold? I can trade to Merrett via some DPP magic, or should I be holding him and upgrade elsewhere. Bringing in M Crouch next week.

    • Lazza says:

      Wait for Crouch if you can’t afford both over the next two weeks… I brought Merrett in last week (forced injury trade)… Crouch is next after his price bottoms out… but Merrett will go up substantially this week.. if you want both go Merrett now and you can pick up Crouch in 2 weeks..

  78. Crowboy94 says:

    Guelfi is just being managed. Worsfold has said he needs a rest and will probably be back next week.

  79. cashcows says:

    25 trades, 134k

    Laird, Hurley, Yeo, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, Naughton, Murphy

    Danger, Fyfe, Martin, Mitchell, Parker, Kelly, Holman, Higgins, Banfield, Brayshaw, Barry

    Gawn, Martin

    Gray, Heeney, Mclean, Smith, Fritsch, ZGL, Henry, Fogarty

    I'm thinking Holman + Banfield -> Cogs + Spargo, and that'll leave me with 1.4k

    • cashcows says:

      Or should I look to move duman in as there doesn't seem to be any DEF rookies on the horizon to make use of the fatten def rookie cows.

    • SloanedogBillionaire says:

      Wouldn't trade upto Cogs has never tonned up against Cats and will probably lose cash. I have him and am thinking of Cogs to Danger

      • Frozen water bomber says:

        Agreed. Wouldnt be bring cogs in now unless you started with him. Plenty of other options

  80. gator59 says:

    ZGL You little ripper for playing this week

  81. Jim_bob321 says:

    Have Walters and Guelfi…
    Playing with one less forward, maybe even two if Fritsch doesn't get named..
    Should I just trade Walters to Sicily or hold?
    Thanks

    • Lazza says:

      What are your other fwds? And do you have DPP options?

      • Jim_bob321 says:

        So i have Buddy, Gray, D Smith, Fritsch, Henry, guelfi and have gone banfield down to spargo for that dpp…

        • Lazza says:

          I think Fritsch will play (will try to check with a Melb player I know and get back)
          Gray Smith Henry
          Fritsch, Spargo, (you must have 1 other)
          Buddy, Guelfi
          Walters up to Mids for Spargo.

          • Derek says:

            Well……… it’s been an hour…. what did your friend say?

            • Russty_ says:

              I'd like to know too, answer your texts..friend of Lazza!

            • Lazza says:

              Well my contact is playing !! … said Fritch was ok this morning, but doesn’t know if he has made the cut yet – hasn’t spoken to him since training..

  82. MeJ says:

    How much longer do I wait for Josh Kelly? Not like I've got the best team going around to leave 600k on the bench.

  83. Hayden says:

    Cole or Duman? Looking to downgrade (or upgrade) L Murphy in my defence. Doesnt look likely to get a game anytime soon through injury and returning players. Thoughts?

    • Redpill5 says:

      I’ve swapped Murphy for cole this week Hayden. Need some bench cover since mirra got dropped. Cole is named on ground and projected to make $50k odd. Jetta is also out injured which further helps his JS.

  84. TBone_9 says:

    Got a few options this week guys, 26 trades and 235k in the kitty.

    1. Banfield out, swing O’Connor onto mid bench and bring in Duman. Would have 380k in the kitty afterwards

    2. L. Murphy out and bring in Duman onto def bench

    3. Save trades and go Banfield down to any mid rookie on bubble next week and Holman up to Oliver

    I’m swaying towards 3 right now but with no cover on def bench I’m worried it could come back to bite me. Would appreciate your opinion guys 🙂

    • Derek says:

      Can you do 1 AND do 3 THIS WEEK as well.

      The quicker you get to premium the better. Is Holman on your field? If so must do.

      • TBone_9 says:

        Hey Derek, I can do 1 and 3 this week. If I were to do that I would pick up Oliver or Cripps and have 70k still leftover. But wouldn’t it be smarter to make my upgrade next week when Holman has fattened up more and Oliver has hit his floor? Cheers mate

        • Defying_Madness says:

          Think about the on field points you lose as well. Need to weigh these two things against each other and decide on which you think is more important

          • TBone_9 says:

            Cheers Madness. That’s a good point… I appreciate the wisdom mate. Will sleep on it and see how the Sunday squads shape up tommorow

  85. John says:

    Are these reasonable trades

    OUT – Fritsch (if he does not play) – Swing English into the forward line ang get Olango

    OUT – Banfield – Swing walters into the midfield ( on the bench till he comes back) and get in Siciliy

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Fritsch has cash to make and will be in and out. HOLD

    • Lazza says:

      2nd option.. I’m doing exactly that if Holman is not selected.

    • Danners says:

      Second option, not sure on picking breakout players, never know when they will fall off

    • Ben says:

      I like option 2, I'll probably do that same trade

    • Marty says:

      No point doing option 1 as Olango doesnt have DPP

      • Brim_Cat says:

        Thats 2 trades that he is talking about guys, not option 1/2. But to answer your question id hold fritsch if you can, also wouldnt bother with olango. Look at ronke/spargo if you need a forward. 2nd trade looks good

  86. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    If u hold Walters as play Sunday can loop holman.

    • Jim_bob321 says:

      Would u hold him if u can only field 21/22 with Guelfi or even Fritsch out..
      Thinking of getting Sicily

      • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

        Guess we will wait and see on teams 2mrw.
        Lots of rooks hinging on the final cut.

        Then can make a call. 🙈

    • Lazza says:

      I’m doing that too

    • Finnius says:

      Am looping Holman with ZGL in the forward line.

  87. Russty_ says:

    So Guelfi came in for Connor McBiter..and now he's gone out because Biter is back in, kinda knew that was going to happen and I traded him in anyway..lol, oh well, he made a bit of money I guess.

    • Frozen water bomber says:

      You and me both russty. Watch him play vfl the rest of the season too

    • KSinny says:

      apparently hes just being rested and should be back next week.

      • Russty_ says:

        It normally says on afl.com.au if they're managed or omitted and he was listed as omitted.

        • Defying_Madness says:

          Video on the bombers website where the coach says he is being rested

          • Russty_ says:

            Oh ok, cheers DM, 3 games and he's rested…a bit soft these days, I think it might also have something to do with Connor McKenna coming back in too.

            • Rocksta says:

              I reckon he’s being rested Russty. The kid shows a bit, and Essendon are hardly world beaters.
              I reckon he’ll be back sooner rather than later

            • Defying_Madness says:

              Coach said something about the anzac break taking a toll on the players. Really tough for a first year to stay at 100% after the short break

    • Holty01 says:

      I actually thought he had been playing well. You would think with how poorly Essendon have been of late you would set an example and drop some senior players who arent performing oppose to a rookie busting his guts.

      • Russty_ says:

        Agree Holty, the young blokes are the future, may as well play them when the team's going crap anyway.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I'll just put him on the bench for now, he's bound to come back down the track.

  88. StevoRivo says:

    So of all the trade options, given selections tonight, Banfield and Coffield likely to go given both are bench selections and may have maxed out.

    The challenge is whether I go for premo mid or premo def.

    Thoughts please on Hurley, Yeo, Simpson, or McCrae, Oliver, Selwood, Pendles, Merret or Bont???

    • Petracconaldo says:

      Defiantly Macrae

      • StevoRivo says:

        Thanks Petracon, he is going well, on track to finish top 10 mids, despite the doggies crap form. Certainly the best form line of all I’ve listed here. Will track final selections before any trades.

    • Marty says:

      More points to be made on premo mids than premo defs

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I like Hurley and Oliver out of that lot.

  89. Petracconaldo says:

    Banfield and Brayshaw for Merrett and Cole with 57k spare or Banfield and Brayshaw for Cripps and Durman with 36.5k spare?

  90. Goaled Finger says:

    Trading in Sicily this week. My theory is very few players have ever been suspended 3 times in one season, so unless he gets injured, he should play every game from now on…that’s what I’m telling myself anyway!

    • Russty_ says:

      Tend to agree Goaled Finger, there'd be huge pressure on him now from his Coach, Team mates and the Media to not be a Flog anymore.
      If he does something dumb again, he's just a hopeless case…lost cause and should be canned.

      • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

        Rumour is he was seen having coffee with david rhys jones

        • Russty_ says:

          Maybe learning some new ways to get suspended Trigga?…haha

          • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

            The cameras let the cat out of the bag but DRJ is due to star on sevens new series "the mentor!"

  91. Rick says:

    25 Trades: 261K – Looking for your best trade advice, thanks
    DEF: Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Doedee, Murray, Bonner (Naughton, L Murphy)
    MID: Danger, Fyfe, Titch, Dusty, Cogs, Kelly, Finalyson, Holman (Banfield, Brayshaw, Barry)
    RUC: Gawn NicNat (Olango)
    FWD: Heeney, Petracca, D Smith, Billings, Christensen, Henry (Fritsch, Guelfi)

    • Jordan says:

      Bonner to merret via Finlayson

      Or you could go bonner to jpk who looks to be coming back into form and upgrade christensien to a Toby Mclean type

  92. Jordan says:

    Get rid of bonner or murray?(bonner could be good bye round cover
    Trade or hold Greene?
    Cripps or merret?
    McLean, Mundy or Robinson

    • Russty_ says:

      I'd go….
      Bonner
      Trade Greene
      Merrett, is 70k cheaper..similar output.
      Mclean

    • Derek says:

      You shouldn’t have either come the byes. I’m surprised Bonnar got a game, Puttard was named.

      Get rid of Greene, even when he gets back he won’t be match ready.

      I went Merret, purely on price a couple of weeks ago. Every week I get beaten in my leagues by someone with Cripps. I don’t know, maybe Merrett, just.

      I’m one of them ones who think McLean has overachieved….. I did say that about Docherty though.

  93. Steeeve says:

    Cannot believe Dom Barry held his spot. Shame he's not a forward or defender but at least he can gain a little more cash. Maybe even have a good game and string a few together.

    • dontblushbaby says:

      Agree, he would be ok for looping only, but with a BE of 28 he's not going to lose much cash, however 1 good score would be a bonus

    • Derek says:

      He might just have that one Menapoo type game, that’s all we need. He actually looks ok at a player.

    • Holty01 says:

      I was hoping he wouldnt play this week so i could loophole him. But i guess cash is more important at this time of the season

  94. Kym says:

    Cannot believe I am contemplating Sicily from Stephenson and Yeo from Finlayson. Double upgrade? Thoughts people?

  95. Finnius says:

    Kade Simpson or Lachie Neale? Any reasons for Neale's below par performances early in the year?

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Simpson for me, a lock for top 6 defenders and has a better bye

    • Derek says:

      Walters had taken Neal’s role as the Mid/fwd, especially as the linking player out of the midfield. Neal had become just a regular inside midfielder. You could see instantly on the weekend when a Walters went off, Neal had the ball and was running through the guts creating the play, especially with Fyfe now playing as the deep forward.

      While Walters is out Neal will score big.

  96. Petracconaldo says:

    Bonner to Cole and Banfield up to a premo mid

  97. Blaknight says:

    So…

    Zorko into McCrea or Selwood
    Murray or Christensen into Cole.

    Cheers.

    • Russty_ says:

      Probably Christensen, has a much higher breakeven…not too sure on Cole though…expensive rookie, could you go to Spargo instead?
      Ideally you'd probably want to upgrade both but you'd need the cash.

    • DavidC says:

      Cole is a good get.

  98. John says:

    Which 2 out of Holman, Brayshaw and Banfield goes?

  99. DavidSA says:

    Can anyone give me the list of rooks that are not likely to play.. I hear that a few in fwd line are unlikely Fritz and Gelato?
    I got footy training tomorrow arvo and going out to see Infinity Wars later at 6:15 pm

    • Russty_ says:

      What's your address Dave so I can come and rob your house? 😉
      Guelfi's out
      Fritsch and Higgins on extended bench on Sunday.
      Hogan and Petracca are named but both might not play…just thought I'd throw those 2 in there although not rookies.

  100. Derek says:

    Around 5pm I think.

    I don’t think you can have enough Melb players if you look at there next 10 games Russty. Remember that fixture tracker I did, Melb goes very green….

    • Russty_ says:

      Ah ok cheers Derek, I only deleted the comment cause no one had responded for an hour, but thanks mate.
      Dees are good for round 14 too 🙂

  101. Defying_Madness says:

    Billings and Murray to Simpson and Yeo? Would be bringing Keefe forward and likely moving him back to my defence next week to reopen the swingset with Sicily

    • Russty_ says:

      2 strong trades there DM, if you don't have bigger Fish to fry.

      • Defying_Madness says:

        Yeah finally got a full team playing this week for the most part. Guelfy and Mirra hurt. Luckily dodged the carnage in the forward line to Buddy, Greene, Walters and hoping to bring them in when they return at a cheap price.

  102. Jono says:

    Hey Damo, great article mate my team is starting to get very solid!! It consists of

    Defenders; Yeo,Hurley,Laird,Doedee, Murray and Finlayson (Naughton and Redman)

    Mids:
    Danger, Fyfe, Mitchell, Dusty, T.Kelly, Coffield, Holman and Banfield (Garlett,Barry,England)

    Rucks:
    Gawn and Nic Nat (Cameron)

    Forwards:
    D.Smith,Robinson,Billings, Stephenson, Rayner and Fritsch. (Buddy and Crowden)!

    Let me know ya thoughts who I should have as captain and vice captain for this week’s games!!
    23 trades left and $542.5k in the bank!!

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      I was thinking that was a terrible team due to the lack of premiums, but then I saw the cash in the kitty. Use it.
      Improve your mid stocks with Selwood and/or Zerrett Improve you Forward stocks with Mundy, Taranto?, McLean and/or Heeney

  103. Jordan says:

    Is it risky having 20 trades left with 6 rookies still left and 180k in the bank?
    If so I may reverse my Toby Greene trade and just hold. (Greene to McLean)

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I have only twenty trades left and seven rookies still left, so you are better off than me.

  104. James says:

    I don’t understand, why are people getting rid of players like Holman and Naughton when they can easily get their BE’s?

    • Russty_ says:

      Because it's time to make the big moves James, sacrificial cows have to be sacrificed in order to achieve the ultimate goal, the full premo team.
      Just depends on …week by week, whether you can do that or have injury issues etc to address.

      • James says:

        I have Finlason, Murray, Doedee, murray, naughton, kelly, Holman, banfield, brayshaw, Barry, Fritsch , Christensen , guelfi and Henry. Is it worth getting rid of one of them if I have 24 trades left?

        • Russty_ says:

          Yeah for sure mate, 24 is plenty left, some guys only have 20 left, Kelly's missed 3 games and will miss again this week, you probably should've already punted him, can you post your full team, so we can have a look and make suggestions?

          • Brim_Cat says:

            Surely hes talking about tim kelly. Christensen is ready to go, then decide between banfield and murray as to what best suits your needs, both are ready to be moved on. Happy trading!

          • James says:

            I’m talking about tim kelly by the way sorry about that

            Defenders: laird yeo Sicily finlayson doedee Murray (naughton Murphy)

            Midfielders: Fyfe Martin Mitchell Cripps Coniglio Zorko Kelly Holman (Banfield Brayshaw Barry)

            Rucks: Martin Gawn (Cameron)

            Forwards: Heeney Greene Billings Christensen Fristch Guelfi (Henry Keefe)

      • Goat says:

        Though I love the idea of “full premo” early, surely the aim is to get there at a steady pace and with the right premise?. Every year trades I should make in Rd 16 I cannot make die to a lack of trades. Also, there has to be a rookie knocking down the door to justify the cash. Next week is good but almost all of my bench is playing this week. I can’t see how I should trade this week.

        • Sc_Wow says:

          If there is a premo you want that’s got a low be and is at a value price you should trade this week

    • Derek says:

      just making their BE isn't good enough. Holman's BE is 35. lets say he gets 50, he will increase in value by $10k. meanwhile Dunman has increased by $60k if you are going down to another rookie or Merrett has increased by $30k if you were upgrading.

      just making there BE is losing ground. the only reason you would hold was if you knew a really poor score was about to drop out of their 3 week average and they will get a nice boost the next week.

      • Steeeve says:

        Exactly it's nice to wring every drop out of a plump cow but if you are upgrading to a fallen premo you have to go when the premo's time is right, not the rookie's. Even if the rookie gains a little more cash than the premo that week you have likely banked twice as many points

        • Derek says:

          anyone who has their copy of the Jock Reynolds magazine 2 will have already read the article on "How to milk the most cash out of your cows" a number of times.

          But for those who don't have a copy, let me tap it out for you….

          "Slaughter your cash cows at the right time.

          This is as important a rookie management consideration as any other. it is also the most difficult to get right. let's have a look at how much cash the rookie class of 2016 generated each week over the course of their first 10 games of the season.

          —-there is a nice graph with lots of wriggly lines—-

          After 6 games our school of rookies had appreciated by an average of $145,000. By the end of their 10th game, they had added an average of only $40,000 to the total.

          When you take your cash cows to slaughter is very much a case by case consideration. However, in general terms most of your rivals will hold onto their rookies for too long.

          the net value of moving from appreciated rookies into point generating premiums quickly in most cases will outweigh the net value of holding onto the rookie for the purpose of an additional nominal price rise.

          As with everything in this game there are some exceptions to the rule, but tending towards aggressively trading out rookies when weekly appreciation drops below $25,000 is a reasonable measure of thumb"

    • Wedge says:

      I'm keeping Holman. Hopefully he can put in three good weeks and get to 300,000 for his bye. Murrey is the one to downgrade to duman. I reckon he's fat enough

    • The Ranger says:

      I think once they've made around 150K James, they're fair game.
      If you don't go early on some you can very easily end up with four or five rookies that all need to be culled at the same time.

  105. Marty says:

    Who can believe Adam Treloar's form this year? Would make a good POD. Must have fixed his disposal efficiency this year.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Let’s hope he scores a -20 so we can pick him up in a few weeks

    • Derek says:

      Adams being out last 3 weeks has helped as well. I think Adams is back this week, lets see how he is affected.

      i do really really like Collingwoods games leading to the byes though.

  106. John says:

    Hey guys any suggestions was thinking of going Greene to McLean since it sounds like he’s going to be out for a while. 24 trades, $220k in the bank, cheers guys.

    DEF: laird yeo Sicily finlayson doedee Murray (naughton Murphy)
    MID: Fyfe Martin Mitchell Cripps Coniglio Zorko Kelly Holman (Banfield Brayshaw Barry)
    RUCK: Martin Gawn (Cameron)
    FWD: Heeney Greene Billings Christensen Fristch Guelfi (Henry Keefe)

    • Russty_ says:

      Yo John, bear in mind Fritsch might not play this week and Guelfi won't, but Henry and Keefe are named onfield… you might need to swing Sicily forward with Keefe, and field Naughton.
      Maybe even consider getting rid of Billings for anyone.
      Zorko and Kelly are also problems, but maybe deal with that next week.

      • John says:

        Should I definitely trade Billings and if so to who? Was thinking of holding him

        • Russty_ says:

          Up to you, maybe Taranto if you don't have him, or Robinson, could even downgade to a rookie…(Spargo) that's all to save money but……
          Greene and Mclean are the same price so a no brainer there, Billings is only worth 400 now but you could still afford anyone, just get the forward you most believe in regardless of price. Choose a keeper.

  107. JohnDJ59 says:

    Not going with my double down trade now, not worth getting in a one game player, so going 1 up 1 down. Walters to Pendles and Coffield to Duman.

    • Russty_ says:

      Hi John, I like that alot more than your double down move…this is the time when we need to be securing keepers, and building our keeper base.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Hey Russty, my team does look better for it, will be good to have only two rookies on field in the mids for the first time this year, could still end up with a donut in the fwd line though.Will be looking to do my double down trade next week, then look to upgrading the week after. Danger and Crouch should have bottomed out by then.

    • Derek says:

      Pendles is looking very good.

      however, how much has his score been inflated by Adams being out? same with Treloar?

      Doesn't look like Pendles has a high ceiling anymore. lots of scores between 105-113 and just one score of 123.

      i personally would be looking elsewhere, bit more value maybe.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Hi Derek, I did consider the Adams factor, but Pendles still scored alright in the first three games when Adams was playing, so not too worried, I know he hasn't got that high ceiling any more, just happy to have a player that I can depend on to get 100 – 110 each week.

  108. Bazza says:

    Hey all!
    Who should I bring in, A or B:
    A: Higgins and Seedsman
    B: Cole and Sicily

    • Russty_ says:

      Maybe Sicily out of those four but who are you trading out for him? which Higgins ?…if it's Jack…too late.
      Cole is expensive for a rookie…Seedsman is doing ok but probably not a keeper.

    • Brim_Cat says:

      B.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      B.
      A doesn’t have very good prospects imo. I looked at Seedsman this week but considering they still have some elite midfielders out, his midfield time could decrease

  109. Holty01 says:

    Well after serious thought and bagging this bloke and as well telling people to stay clear of him, ive decided to bring in sicily. With that though, i will bring in Cole. I know he is an expensive rookie but i feel his js is very good and if Sicily doez do something stupid again, i would have faith in Cole to do a job.

    • SC_Donkey says:

      Lol! I'm still pondering wether I should or not.

      • Holty01 says:

        Bringing him in over a Yeo or Simpson just helps the 4 week plan i have. Hoping to be 2 short of full premium at that point. Onviously pending on injuries as so forth

        • Derek says:

          Yeo has been annoyingly good.

          After his 27 against geelong in round 3, i was licking my lips to pick him up around $450k. 150, 114 & 94 put an end to that plan.

          however, WCE do have Port, GWS, Tigers & Hawks coming up. I'm going to bet on him having at least one stinker in that lot.

          Simpson is averaging 100…. again.

          • Holty01 says:

            Yeah Yeo or Simpson is the next upgrade in 2 weeks for the backline. Then the last is Laird. Been waiting for him to have a bad game but could be similar to Docherty. Just have to pay the big bucks for him

  110. SC_Donkey says:

    Why am I even considering bringing in Sicily?
    Maybe because Curnow is out, Guelfi got dropped, Fritsch on extended bench. Or maybe Sicily is just an SC relevant, apart from his temper I would've slotted him in my side without no doubt.

    Anyone know how bad Curnows ankle injury?

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      His scoring potential at his price shouldn’t be ignored! You can keep a record to see how much he scores every week and, when he’s out, count the rookie substitute or F7. I bet it will be 100+ average

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Oh and Curnow has a minor ankle sprain. 1-3 weeks. Might need to wait for the report. It also depends on his body. Sprains act differently to most people

      • SC_Donkey says:

        Thanks Ty,

        Depending on how bad that sprain is, can miss a couple of weeks. Not looking to trade him out, and Sicily is handy to have even though he'll miss a few games here and there cause he can't keep his temper down. As you mentioned he would be a good cover at F7 or D7 for the season.

    • Derek says:

      it isn't the suspensions that we need to worry about, it is the 23 he scores when the opposition get under his skin and he gives away 5 FA and a couple of 50m.

      i'm looking at my team and thinking about which keeper to get in next. my midfield is done, so looking Defense or Forwards, and there is really no-one who is saying pick me because i'm good and good value…. except Sicily. Simpson is my next option at $80k more.

      • Sc_Wow says:

        Simpson should drop further in the next few weeks

      • SC_Donkey says:

        Good point Derek, guess i just put it all into one word is his "temper" (include; suspension, free against and 50m).

        I see a lot of SCs midfield are filled, I'm still 2 premos away in that area. 1 spot is for Dusty and still not sure who the other one will be yet. Crouch or Jelwood are the two I'm looking at getting in.

        Backline I need 3 premos, Hurley is one maybe next week, still not sure which two to bring in to fill the backs. Fwd Mundy in this week, Gray after his bye and maybe Westhoff should give me a good look if his output drops since Ryder is back this week.

  111. Stupid Coach says:

    Great work again Damo. I have 23 trades and $158k in the bank. Team is as follows:
    B: Laird, Hurley, Ryan, Savage, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray and Naughton.
    M: Danger, Titch, Dusty, Zorko, Parker, Cogs, T Kelly, Holman, Garlett, Coffield, Barry.
    R: Gawn, Nank, Olongo
    F: Buddy, Petracca, Smith,Gowers, ZGL, Crowden, Guelfi, Henry.

    I have lost patience with Zorko (has cost me too many league games) and has to go – thinking Cripps or Macrae. Not sure whether to trade Buddy to McLean or downgrade a rookie to generate cash and see if Buddy returns next week.

    Appreciate any advice community.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Zorko is too cheap to upgrade him to a player as expensive as Cripps or Macrae. Generally I use a rule to only upgrade the players by 100k in sideways trades

    • INPieman says:

      You need to address your forward line. Murray & Naughton on bench seems a luxury. Send one to Cole or Duman & use the funds to turn a forward rook into Sicily. Perhaps cut your losses with Guelfi

      • Stupid Coach says:

        Thanks INPieman and Tyrunddanaut. I could go Murray to Cole and turn one of the forward rookies into Sicily or McLean. I only brought Guelfi in last week and according to Worsfold he is just having a rest and could be back next week so I would like to keep him until them and use him as a captaincy loop hole option if possible. Which rookies out of Henry, Crowden, Garlett or ZGL would you trade?.

        I just thought I really needed to get rid of Zorko because apart from one score over 100 all his other scores have been below 50 and I can't afford him doing that again as I have lost my past three league matches and need to start winning if I want to make finals. Reading all the comments here, it seems like Cripps or McLean are the best options to bring in price wise.

  112. Mike says:

    Ive had enough i got rid of buddy and j kelly
    And got in cripps and westhoffffff . No time frame given on the rwo with there i injuries

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      Beware of the Hoff. Ryder back means he may spend less time around the ball. Could impact his scoring.

  113. Fitzy says:

    I want one of spargo, Mutch or worpel this week so I can hopefully get the other two next week, whose the best JS?

    Also I’m upgrading bonner. Whose best value?? I like Simpson, hurn & Webster now robertons out..

    • Steeeve says:

      None are 100% safe and whoever you bring in will crap out a 37

      • Fitzy says:

        Love the honesty steeeeve. Spargo it is

        • Steeeve says:

          I really want to do the same (would choose Spargo) but am too conservative.

          • Fitzy says:

            I’m not one to go a week early on rookies but with banfield, Holman and brayshaw all about fattened up and the 3 I mentioned above earlier going on the bubble the same week I feel you nearly need all 3.

    • Witchy says:

      I’d be worried about Spags JS with Viney about to return

  114. Fitzy says:

    I’m licking my lips at Webster . Seems too good of value and Roberton out is a big up! Any reason why I shouldn’t pick him? 80-100k cheaper than Simpson/yeo/hurley

    • Sc_Wow says:

      What’s his best yearly average to date?

      • Fitzy says:

        Not great I know WOW but has been on the upward trend… has to count for something? Maybe a breakout year n slot into D5/6?

    • Holty01 says:

      Who do you currently have in ur backline?

      • Fitzy says:

        Laird hibberd bonner doedee finlayson & murray. Naughton And murphy on the pine

        • Brim_Cat says:

          Could be a better pick than hibberd, who knows. Risky pick though IMO. Id be looking at the other 3 you mentioned.

        • SC_Donkey says:

          The way Hibbo is going this year, you wouldn't want another in your team that might not be a top 6 defender. I would look at bringing those guys mentioned Simmo, Yeo and Hurley are a must've, Witherden looks to be the better pick on track of being a top 8-10 than Webster or Roberton.

  115. Jack says:

    Zorko to Danger?
    Or hold since Zorko has lost so much cash

  116. dale says:

    Out : bonner
    Do I swing Sicily back and bring in gray? He is doing as he likes but is 570k huge overs?? His output is far superior to any defenders I could get in is all

    • Steeeve says:

      I'd wait until after his bye. Plus he's one "groin tightness" away from a full game in the forward 50 scoring bugger all.

  117. Soothsayer says:

    Lapin ski job security?

  118. simon says:

    thoughts on tom mcdonald. could be valuable swing set for sicily?

    • DacZawson says:

      Won't score enough to justify keeping him as a premo.
      Keefe named this week if you're desperate for a swingset in the next few weeks.

  119. K2V says:

    Thinking about trading in Westhoff this week or should i go the safer Mclean.

    • Regan says:

      I’ve heard Westhoff is carrying an injury and with Ryder coming in it could really impact his scoring

    • DacZawson says:

      McLean by the length of the Princes Highway

  120. pod says:

    Just a question community how do I check my teams values thankyou

  121. JugHead says:

    Really want to get Crouch in next week and feel I have to slaughter a cow this week to build the cash.
    Would have preferred not to because the bubble boyz this week dont excite me too much and I have a rule about not bringing them in early. My team is

    Laird, Hurley, Yeo, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray (Naughton, Murphy)
    Danger, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Zerret, TKelly, Holman, Brayshaw (Petracca, Dow, Barry)
    Gawn, Nank (English)
    Heeney, Mundy, McLean, Stephenson, Waterman, Fritch (Higgins, Garlett)

    Thinking of axing Holman this week, swing Finlayson to mids and bring in Duman. Then next week axe Murray, swing Finlayson back to leave a hole in the mids for Crouch. Any thoughts? Or other general suggestions for my team?

    • JugHead says:

      34k in the bank, 24 trades

    • DavidC says:

      I think I'd hold for 1 more week. Just got the feeling Holman might have good score this week and go up a bit in value.

  122. seen_burns says:

    I've got 134k in bank, will be trading Josh Dunkley (368k) giving me about 502k, McLean the best option at 515k but 13k short. Should I downgrade Bailey Banfield swing Finlayson into the mid and bring in Duman/Cole or go early on Spargo. Or just use one trade to get someone like Jack Gunston (469k)?
    FWD- Heeney, Smith, Sicily, Billings, Dunkley, Fritsch. (Henry, Guelfi)

    • JugHead says:

      As in my earlier post, I don't recommend anyone going early. I'll probably do option 1. If you want to just use one trade for Gunstan, I'd also look at Taranto. My opinion only but I think he still has some value.

  123. KSinny says:

    I'm really in two minds on this trade guys, so I've downgraded Murray to spargo which I'm happy with but I now need to upgrade banfield to somebody.i have enough money to get anybody I want and initially went with Oliver as he is only 570k atm, but I've always planned to have Dangerfield in my team but not sure if its worth the extra 70k to get him in this week. Both Oliver and Dangers BE's are about the same but depending on who I get I won't be able to get the other for at least another 2 weeks. Thoughts?

    • Keenbutclueless says:

      Derek made a strong case for Oliver based on Melbourne’s favourable fixture for the next 6 week’s. So if you are considering Oliver, now is probably the best time

  124. pod says:

    Impey named in the back pocket, Mitchell as a half forward, Jags on the bench and Howe in the guts. Love how Clarko and the MC just troll everyone when doing the team sheet.

  125. John says:

    Trade in Duman or Cole for sam Murray?

  126. Nick says:

    who to trade in for Christensen out of Taranto, Robinson, McLean, and Gray

  127. Claire says:

    I have had a quick flick through the forum to find out why Mirra was dropped? Apologies if I have missed the answer to my question. I know Sicily returned but I thought Mirra did ok. Being an older guy and having been on the Hawks list for a while he knows how they play. I thought he might hold his spot until Birchall returns after their bye!
    So, Derek the Hawk fan and/or others, why his omission and might he return earlier rather than later.?

    • Northernsoul74 says:

      Simple, he’s not best 22. Never was as Derek pointed out last week.

    • Derek says:

      Duryea and Hardwick have both been very good this year. I thought Duryea might struggle to hold his place.

      The hawks had a few injuries, Langford, Shoenmaker, Burygone, Poppy, Cyril, Shiels along with a certain other player who kept getting suspended, that opened the door for Mirra to get a few games. He did ok but was just filing in until others retired.

      Worpel could be different, the hawks are thin in the midfield, he might have an opportunity if he plays well.

      • Claire says:

        Ok, looks like I made a trade boo-boo.

        • Derek says:

          lots of people got him. I have Murphy and O'Conner sitting on my defense bench, not real bright

  128. Andrew says:

    Have $190k in the bank
    Do I go Holman to JPK this week or wait to go Spargo to Banfield and Holman to Macrae or M Crouch?
    Is JPK capable of averaging 105-110 from here?

  129. Greg says:

    Think it will just be Banfield to Neale for me this week, have flirted with the idea of going Murphy to Duman but I'm not sure the trade is worth the $30k I'll make.

    Now debating whether to double downgrade next week, had planned to go one up one down and turf Murray but might be better pressed to wait another week.

    Need to keep building my bank to ideally get in Crouch / Oliver soon and also Gray after R11.

    Thoughts?

  130. John says:

    Which 3 do I field of Henry, Langdon, Coffield, Barry, Holman, Spargo?

    • Brim_Cat says:

      Loophole henry if you can. Wouldnt field barry. Also risky starting a player that has only played 1 game. Trust your instincts

  131. BadgerHoney7 says:

    Stewart Crameri in for Geelong this week, VC option but also good for Danger, won't have to play so much time fwd.

  132. Jimmy says:

    Going Greene to Gray, thoughts ?

    • trev says:

      did that last week

    • DacZawson says:

      Paying overs for Gray, but clearly gonna finish top 6 forwards.
      If you don't have McLean I'd prefer to pick him but otherwise, go for Gray

      • DavidSA says:

        Agree Gray too much now and has an early bye coming up
        He might feel flat after China drop in value who knows

  133. jordan batis says:

    hi I'm really bad at supercoach and I was going to get blake acres in this week and since he hasn't been named I'm thinking of getting webster. I need some serious help please. I have Taranto sitting in my forward line and I don't know why ive kept toby greene please help me its pretty much my first year I would consider myself a rookie

    • JugHead says:

      Put your whole team up for us to have a look at Jordan. Some ppl will have suggestions mate.

    • Brim_Cat says:

      Not sold on Webster, give it another week or 2 before jumping on him. Jughead is right, if you want help need to post your team

  134. Neverweaken says:

    So. My forward line is Devon Smith, Petracca, Walters, Buddy, Lids, Fritsch, Henry and Guelfi
    I have Sicily down back. I can trade someone out and put Sicily forward and get Duman or Cole. Thats the easy bit.
    I can trade out Banfield and put Walters or Petracca in mid bench to hold. If Petracca plays obviously I want to keep him. If he doesnt play I would prefer to trade him rather than Walters.
    WHAT THE F*** DO I DO 🙂

    • Brim_Cat says:

      Trade walters, you are in no position to be holding him

    • KSinny says:

      Walter's out for at least 2-3 weeks, petracca 50/50 to play this week and even if he doesn't hes 100% back next week. Trade Walter's

  135. DavidSA says:

    Surely Higgins and Fritsch make the cut Sunday
    I'm in a world of hurt if they dont.
    Surprised the Rat got a gig again tonight.

    Man I get this feeling I am going to have to hold trades tonight because of Sunday uncertainty

  136. Ando says:

    Hey Community! Thoughts on loopholing this week?

    Danger into Titch or Gawn

    Titch into Gawn

    Leaning towards the latter because Danger doesn't seem to be at his best…

  137. Willymack1234 says:

    What time are the Sunday teams named?

  138. The G Train says:

    hey fellas, really would appreciate any feedback, had a rough start to the season with a few forced changes and it hasnt got any easier since. Thinking about Murray down to Duman and leaving Holman for another week or two and scooping up Crouch when he bottoms out. Thoughts appreciated. Team below, 500k in the bank. 24 trades left so pretty keen to hang onto walters and billings and just hoping he puts his kicking boots on.

    Laird, Simpson, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, Richards (Mirra, Keefe)
    Fyfe, Dusty, Mitchell, Cripps, Coniglio, Merrett, Kelly, Holman (Brayshaw, Banfield, Barry)
    Gawn, Nic Nat (Cameron)
    Heeney, Hogan, Smith, Billings, Henry, ZGL (Walters, Venables)

    • The G Train says:

      also, I am playing purely for league Wins, dont care about rank this season

  139. ROB14 says:

    What peoples thoughts on Mitch Robinson? Complete weirdo but scoring pretty good?!

  140. Stupid Coach says:

    Thoughts on:
    1) Murray to Durnam and Garlett or Henry to Sicily
    2) Murray to Durnam and Zorko to Cripps
    3) VC – Danger or Titch
    4) Which two on the field out of Murray, Doedee, Finlayson and Naughton.

    Thanks Community.

  141. lachy says:

    option 1 or 2?

    1: Banfield to merrett/selewood/bont
    or
    2: Bonner to simpson/yeo/hurley

    a suggestion of which player in the option you decide would be appreciated too

  142. AB13 says:

    O'meara to Mcrae or Cripps?
