Jock Reynolds Fantasy Footy Podcast – pre round 8

Published by Jock on

AFL Supercoach Bargains round 8

To Buddy or not to Buddy? This looks like being one of the big questions facing Supercoach and Dreamteamers in the lead up to round 8 of the game we know and love.

But it’s not just Buddy Franklin seducing fantasy footy coaches with his value for money this week. We need to look at blokes like Matthew Priddis. He is as cheap as you are ever likely to see him and he also could be a game winner for your mob. Dale Thomas remains incredible bloody value, as does The Orange Roughie Jarryd Roughead, Drew Petrie and even Adam Goodes.

Whack the old earphones in, crank it up in the car on the way to work, pump it up on the old stereo. Whichever way you listen kick back and enjoy the show.

Make sure you head over to iTunes and subscribe to the podcast – great way to get em delivered each week. If you’re feeling frisky leave us a review over there as well – would absolutely love to hear from ya,

Jock

Wines to Watson/Selwood/Swan?

and

Stevenson to Scotland/Hibberd/Duffield??

Thoughts, Jock?

King Gerrard

All 3 mids are worth getting… guess you need to wait for the Breakevens to workout who is best to get right now? I'm guessing Watson is probably as cheap as he will get?

Swan price is too high at this stage & Selwood might drop a little more after this week?

Jim

Thanks mate. Food for thought.

Dee

I've already got Buddy since day 1…. Not convinced on Daisy, Stevie J. Is a far more better and safer pick! Priddis in this week and Watson the week after then the big NIC NAT in the forward line…. Petrie is definitely on the radar mate! 5-0 in the season and just scored 2263… Season flying at the moment! Got Fyfe, B. Goodes and Crouch all in next week…. Thanks Jock, brilliant Pod Cast yet again! Cheers buddy!

@MRB37

Crouch probably won't be in next week, sounds like they'll give him a run in the SANFL for a week before being back in the main side.

Dee

Thanks for the heads up mate….

supercoach rookie

Thanks for the great podcast. Bit dissapointed that I chose this week to get rid of both dwyer and viney but what can you do. I was wondering who is more of a priority to trade out jacobs, hartlett or Zorko. An answer would be very much appreciated.

Rocksta

You shouldn't be trading out any of them as you will just be sideways trading. If you intend to downgrade, that isn't a good idea either with those 3.

SCaddict

I've had a gutfull of Hartlett so am trading him out for Priddis. At least Zorko and Jacobs are giving you a minimum of 60pts each week. Same can't be said of Hartlett who has failed 3 such times so not consistent premium material as I see it. 3 strikes and your out I reckon.

Port's immediate draw doesn't get any easier either so to keep him would either be brave or foolish. I guess we'll find out which it will be in the coming weeks but I'm jumping off at the next station. Others can choose to continue the ride.

Rocksta

I agree it's a hard one with Hartlett. I do however note that he has done the same thing in past years ( outstanding scores followed by shockers). We shouldn't have picked him in the first place based on that fact but I reckon persist a little longer.

SCaddict

I know the bugger could go for 120 next week he definitely has premium level talent. But last year his lowest score was 52 and that's when he tore his hammy. No such excuses this time round afaik.

I could deal with a 52 but 29 is just flat out ridiculous especially to go along with the 38 he had in Rd 2. That's green vest rookie scoring FFS! Factoring in that he's injury prone also makes the decision a little easier for me. Will be interesting to see what happens.

If you are going to jump this is the week to do it and not if and when he drops to say $400K. Those who decide to hang on…well you're a braver man than me.

FrontPocket

I'm going to take that challenge and dangle the plums on keeping Hartlett. I have a feeling I might be getting the 49% while you're getting the 51%.

Gonna ride this one out (at least another week…)

Rocksta

Likewise.
Just feels like a waste of a trade that I will need down the line.

Eefto

Stick around with Sammy Jacobs. I reckon he'll come good

matty

zorko hes a spastic

Tim

I have jacobs, not sure who to trade to rough or jolly and i have neade,stevenson and wines who should i slaughter first jock?

@MRB37

Reckon you'll cull Neade or Stevenson first, Wines will still keep for 1 more week.

James

im culling Wines for Hodge this week cos Wines wont go up any more so thats my thoughts

@MRB37

Great work guys, always valuable advice dispensed from the podcast. Quick question for you fellas, because it's something I enjoyed immensely last year, are you guys going to bring back your own little segments you each had? Loved the Crouching One's wisdom, Jock's angry rants and Higgo's genius, would love to see it back again.

Also have to say, I hate this silly Monday night football stuff, I wanna get on the SC site and start fiddling with my team. Stop copying the bloody American football and stick to the good 'ol Friday to Sunday schedule.

Birchall has been terrible since I grabbed him, making me mad. And Port Adelaide, didn't take those guys long to go back to their old ways did it? I expected it from that downhill skier Westhoff, but you expect better from Hartlett. He's a quality player, needs a kick up the backside. And let me tell you about Westhoff, you could sideways trade him for a stale sausage roll and you'd come out ahead in that deal.

Jacobs is gonski from my side this week. The Sauce has gone sour and if he keeps up these kind of poor performances he's gonna get a beating from McEvoy and Goldstein the next two weeks. Think i'll swap Cox into the rucks and trade Jacobs for Franklin.

Did pick a good week to trade Wines in for Dangerfield though, those GWS kids couldn't stop him. I'd hate to see what a really good side in Hawthorn do to them.

Callum

Wish i had the luxury of being able to trade out jacobs but this week i must trade heath and neade.

@MRB37

I've been saying for the past fortnight that i'll trade him, but always had other higher priorities come up eg nabbing Dangerfield last week. Even this week I may very well skip trading him again since he's almost bottomed out and concentrate on getting another bottomed out midfielder like Priddis in my side, which is probably the best thing to do.

Neade is a goner for me I think too, not quite sure who i'll be bringing in however.

Top_Cotch

Monday footy sucks. I'm now waiting another day to "Rage Trade" – sucks.
P.S. I hope your listening Travis and Hamish. – Spuds both of you.

@MRB37

Monday footy does suck, it's such a silly idea.

Dazza

Not play Monday night footy so you can fiddle with your SC team? C'mon mate..surely you can find something else to fiddle with for one day.I was pumped all Monday waiting for the game.And the mighty sainters saluted.Good crowd there too.I think your view might be in the minority.

Sulzeer

Wouldn't think so with there upcoming fixtures, can't see any joy for any lions players until maybe round 15 when they have GCS and even that's not a certainty.

Gillie4

I was just thinking him because he normally picks people on the bubble and he didnt look to bad after starting as sub!

Sulzeer

It's a good call, just wouldn't be looking to bring him in, Brent Harvey?

Gillie4

That's a great call! didnt think about him!

Shezza

I traded jacobs for hannath last week. Now he is no. 1 ruck and should get me 70-80 points. Waiting for nic nat to drop.

Sulzeer

Are we expecting Pittard back this week? Goodes and Fyfe make a big difference, when do we feel confident in putting the Majak boy on field? Not keen to sit him on the pine while he scores 138… Need a Stevenson trade option who isn't Docherty, really not liking Lions next 8 weeks, and who to bring in for Zorko? In a mid of GAJ, selwood, jpk, Fyfe, Scott Thompson, danger, jäger and daisy

Another great podcast Jock, best way to spend the final hours of the weekend

@MRB37

I heard Pittard's initial diagnosis was 4 weeks, so he might be 50/50 to play this week (I think he's missed 3 right?)

And I could see Majak putting up 50's more often than he puts up 100+ scores, but you'd have guts if you started him.

If you've got Daisy in your mids, why don't you swing him into the forward line and bring in someone like Priddis?

Sulzeer

Majak might be a ‘only if north are playing a weak team’, yeah pittard’s been out for three weeks now, if he’s back it will give a full list of back line to pick from and hold on Stevenson for another week.

Was thinking Priddis but I’m carrying a few WCE players already, Cox, Kennedy, LeCras and Sinclair, boomer Harvey is my other option I’m considering.

Mr Chan

i say thank for all wise advise! I know season only get started but you guy have helped me go from 120,000 ranked last year to currently 9253 at the moment. Much love!! And keep it up

Matt

Priddis and earn $10K OR Watson or spend $100K?

Also, ditch Goldsack or Rowe for Kennedy? Obviously more $$ trading the Headbanded One.

Matt

I mean Jobe AND spend $100K?

Thoughts? Thanks.

Rocksta

Depends whom your other premium mids are, and how many you have.
I see Watson as a 120+ average player, whilst Priddis is a 105-110 average player ( handballs a lot).
I'm bringing in Priddis because I've already got Watson, Ablett, Pendles, JPK and Fyfe. As such, I'd rather save some money to bolster another line later on.

Rocksta

Sorry, and already got Danger in midfield as well. Thus, choice is easy. If however you don't have lots of super premium mids as I do, I'd go Watson.

Matt

Very good point.

My Prems: Ablett, Pendules, Swan, JPK and Cox.

Save the money and get Nic Nat. Thanks Rocksta!

SCaddict

Yes I'd go Priddis too as his price has definitely bottomed out after this weekend with this the last week that the KO 5 factors into his pricing.

Still feel Jobe has a little further to fall with that 66 still in his pricing for another week. May be able to pick him up for under $550K in a few more weeks if he doesn't go too crazy against the Lions next week.

My own little plan is Hartlett to Priddis this week, rookie upgrade to Selwood the following week and probably a rookie upgrade to either Lids, Cotch or Watson the week after that, injuries permitting of course. That will leave me with a locked and loaded midfield approaching the byes of Gaz, Pendles, Swan, JPK, Selwood, Watson/Lids/Cotch, Priddis and Daisy with 12 trades left.

Matt

That's a great plan, SCaddict.

Think you're right about waiting a little on Jobe or Cotch. Will get Libratore or Mundy out for Priddis. Then get rid of Wines and Viney for Jobe or Cotch. Maybe Selwood.

Daisy is in my front line. Need to get Goldsack out but will probably trade out Neade or Rowe before that. Think I should trade Neade before Rowe? Think so because his value will probably go down before Rowe's.

Thanks

matty

trade out spastic nutsacks for sure rowe should come back at some stage

Matt

Yeah. I'm thinking trading out Crapsack for Kennedy. Use the $ to get Danger.

Serves me right for getting a guy with a headband.

Adrian

I have kept Tex and im wondering which is a better trade
-tex out for buddy in
or
-tex out and then swing dale thomas into my fwd and then pick up priddis

Thoughts?

@TG_Footy_Tragic

Option 2 Adrian!
Priddis has bottomed out.
Buddy has a lax draw, but a high BE again and i can't see him smashing it like last year.
Cloke-a-la-2012

gore

I'd also watch out for the Hawks resting some big guns over the next few weeks. Almost a certainty in my opinion.

@MRB37

Yes option 2 for sure!

Callum

i have had drew petrie for a whole year before, and he is worse than broughton at burning you, i will never pick him ever agian!

Benny

what should i do with monfries? Only 69 this week and seems to be getting worse.
Should i hold him and risk him going down alot in price or should i sideways trade???? Also got neade and stevenson who should i trade out oof these two first?

Azza

Yea I've got monfries too, but also got Heath and neade who have got to go first. Monfries be isn't too bad at the moment so no rush

SPIFFLICATOR

Port players were always going to start well and become trade up/down options after rnd 6. Time to slaughter the mid pricer.

Fabian

Great podcast guys. Glad I didn't pick up Hartlett!

Hopefully looking to welcome back 5 Premiums and Brett Goodes into my side this week from injury/suspension. Managed to sneak a 2000+ score with a donut which although isn't great, I'm content with considering the caliber of players I had out etc.

Stevenson,Heath,Wines and Neade on the chopping block this week. Will probably Downgrade two this week, then a downgrade and an upgrade to an ultra premium the week after.

Jason

I think this week my priority will be upgrading to one or even two premium defenders. Got around $567k in cash.

Jock, what are your thoughts on which rookies to cash in out of: Terlich, Stevenson, Evans, Macaffer or Callum Sinclair? Sinclair has been good for cash but I'm not sure we'll see much more of him this season with NicNat back. Also got Sam Rowe and considering getting rid of him.

Backline is Goddard, Heppell, Duffield, Stevenson, Terlich & Colquhourn, with Goodes and Sierrakowski on the pine.

Aaron

Stevenson looks to have hit he’s peak and should be the first traded out then Rowe or Sinclair as there not playing

Andrew

Stevenson and Sinclair. Rowe has a great chance of a recall and has still room for a bit of cash while you deal with the others.

Aaron

How about the Kerridge boy Jock! I got him in when he was on the bubble and watched him very closely against GWS looks an absolute ripper! Uses the pill wisely.

john

In a dilemma,
either trade Hartlett
or keep him and upgrade Neade to Buddy and Wines to Priddis?

FrontPocket

Neade to Buddy and Wines to Priddis is likely to put more of a smile on your face than trading out Hartlett. Buddy and Priddis should be going up in value, hopefully more than Hartlett will be going down. Neade and Wines have reached their peak as well, so they could also be losing a bit in the near future.

I'm sticking with Hartlett anyway. Don't really like it, but that's one of the joys of competing in SC.

Sunka

Agree. Hartlett has shown enough for me to keep him. Expecting him to get back to the good form soon!

SPIFFLICATOR

I would avoid Buddy like the plague! Can't see him clicking ATM even against GWS, like Cloke last year, his head is elsewhere.

chandanrajdb

John,

I am in the same boat as you mate with respect to Hartlett………I am not sure what to do with him…….

Very tempting to get rid of him by doing a sideways trade and waste one trade…….is it a right or wrong decision ???…….will only be answered in next couple of weeks……

Verdict: I am actually thinking of getting rid of Hartlett………not worth to keep him i think……

And regarding Buddy….I think you can wait for one more week…..has got a high BE and possibility of Hawks resting the senior players……

Good Luck mate……
Raj….

Aaron

I have Neade Stevenson & Wines… Which one do you hold onto for another week? As 2 are getting slaughtered!

@MRB37

Hold onto Wines I reckon, BE should still be in 60's, so he is capable of still holding his value. Of course depending on your free cash, you can always trade out 2 of them in the 1 go. Sell Neade/Stevenson for cheap and then upgrade Wines to Priddis or whichever other good midfielder you want to buy. Or sell Wines for cheap and upgrade Neade to Daisy or someone like that.

Aaron

Think ill stay away from Priddis & go for JP Kennedy, Watson or even Jack for a POD. It's a good point you make though as Wines has been the clear best out of the 3 but I think with Gibbs coming back I may be able to hold onto Stevenson & go Neade & Wines for one of the 3 I mentioned and young Ben Kennedy as I only have 50k in the bank. Also I only have 5 premium mids… But gee Stevenson to Duffield could be a nice trade. Lol! Too many good options this week. Cheers for the feedback mate.

Jay

Brilliant podcast, loving the Crouching One's Self-Flykick!!! Too good
Thinking Wines -> Priddis & downgrade Neade -> Docherty/Sierakowski (depending on team sheet)…..This will allow me to move Vlastuin into MID, with Gibbs and Goodes set to return, facing a situation of Goodes, Vlastuin and Terlich fighting it out for D6 spot, so moving Vlastuin into the MIDs

After these trades team looking quite settled:
DEF: Birchall, Goddard, Heppel, Gibbs, Goodes, Terlich – Bench: Heath, Docherty/Sierakowski
MID: Ablett, Pendles, Danger, J. Selwood, Shuey, Priddis, O'Meara, Vlastuin – Bench: Crouch, Mitchell
RUC: Cox, L'Berger – Bench: Daw, Blicavs
FWD: Walker, Rockliff, Bartel, Kennedy, D. Thomas, Mayes – Bench: Maccaffer, Rowe

Looking to upgrade to Stevie J or maybe Nic Nat (maybe for Kennedy – starting to plateau) into FWDs with the extra cash generated from Docherty/Sierakowski downgrade & bring in another Premium into the MIDs for Vlastuin/O'Meara after the byes for the run home!!

King Gerrard

I traded Jude Bolton -> Daisy Thomas & Zorko -> Stevie J show

They say don't trade premiums but these sub prems need to go like the Hoff & Hartlett.. Glad I've cleared the rubbish players now then hold them for a few more rounds & lose points & cash.

230k in my war chest, upgrade Wines to Watson or Franklin? Anyone know Watsons breakeven?

Aaron

I think Watson's BE will be around 140 but don't hold me to that. I still wouldn't be surprised if he scores that against the Lions at Etihad, could get real ugly for Brisbane.

I'm doing the same, upgrading Wines, I'm thinking Watson, JP Kennedy or even Kieren Jack! Still not sure though.

I don't know about Buddy, you'd think he will drop in price after next week but he's had an average year so far, obviously why his so cheap!

I'm gonna hold for now.

Aaron

Plus I wouldn't mind picking up Nic Nat when he gets to the low 500k mark, instead of Buddy.

Bowlesy

Can you have both Cox and Nic Nat in your ruck? Options for the fallen Griffin?

Aaron

I think so. But Nic Nat is still going to drop in price a fair bit. You could even go straight swap to Hannath, keep the cash there for Nic Nat in the coming weeks when he bottoms out that way you make money and you spend less for the superstar! Or you could just go Griffin to Roughead who looks like he's starting to get going.

Bruce

I have both Neade and Stevenson and am looking to downgrade one of them.

Who is the better pick to downgrade first??

Aaron

Probably Neade but a good time to chop them both!

Max

stevenson for thurlow from geelong.

Gillie4

Just when I thought my whole defence will be playing Shaw gets suspended its a joke it was nothing!

Aaron

I can not believe it! I just traded him in for Dixon haha doesn't get much worse.

Gillie4

I know! And I got Griffen! Had Daw on the bench to could of got an extra 100 points oh well!

Aaron

That's unlucky about Griffin.

Now all we need is Gibbs to not play this week just to give us a good kick whilst we're down! Wouldn't surprise me.

Sam

Which trade do you guys reckon is better?

O'meara -> Selwood or Watson
or
Stevenson/Heath -> Birchall

udi

get the port players out mate

Aaron

The latter! O'meara still going to make you plenty of cash whilst the Port boys are spent!

Gillie4

Keep O'Meara he's averaging 90. He's a gun! And still has low BE

FrontPocket

How about Stevenson / Heath to Hanley, if you've got the cash and don't already have him

Sunka

It's starting to look like not bringing Priddis in will be a P.O.D. Might be to good value to pass up though!

Aaron

He handballs a lot, doesn't kick goals and his efficiency isn't great so your not going to get huge scores but you know you'll get consistency. The midfield is the engine room so to speak so ideally you want the 600k+ players to get you those big scores. It's a really good week to get JP Kennedy or Jobe Watson for around 570k if you can. That's my opinion anyway. It's easy to get sucked in when they're that cheap.

Sunka

Yeah I'm thinking Jobe or Danger…. already got Pendles, JPK, Swallow, Deledio and Mitchell, but with no Ablett I think it's best to grab a big gun

Jake

boys its matthew priddis, take a good bloody look at yourselves. GUN

James

Hey Jock,
I am culling Wines this week for Hodge. I only scored 1887 this week and there is a lot of room for improvement. I am thinking of culling Jake Neade or Porplyzia and i will have roughly 100 grand left to spend after the first trade. Any thoughts on who to get?

Thanks

Hank Jones

Stevie J…if its not already too late.
St Nick….if its not already too late.
Buddy….ripe for the plucking.

Guess its Buddy!

Hank Jones

Sorry, just read your budget constraints! I'd be looking to earn more $$ so I would downgrade to a Kerridge.

Harry

What should I do with Gaff, he has been terrible this year but I don't want to trade him out because I have a feeling he should get some form back at some point in the year. Should I cut my losses and trade him to Priddis or should I get rid of Wines instead and just leave Gaff on the pine?

Aaron

Cut your losses mate and go straight to Priddis or Daisy. Wines should still be around the same price next week.

Rocksta

Gaff is an outside player and as such doesnt get his own ball. I reckon he is really struggling and outside players need to be flying for you to get value from them. I dont like sideways trades but Gaff to Priddis sound like a good idea. Wines is worth a bit so is it possible for you to perhaps bring in a Robbie Gray as well on a 2 way trade ( depending on how much you have in the bank)?
Robbie is only going to get better

Aaron

Your spot on! There more inconsistent. Hmm no I don't like that. Gotta upgrade wines to a premium or downgrade if you really have to to generate cash.

Rocksta

I personally don't do sideways trades, as evidenced by my post below, and the fact that im sticking with Hamish Hartlett( posted yesterday).
I reckon fill your side first, and leave the sideways trades to finals time.

Aaron

I agree, doing the same with Jacobs.

Rocksta

Community,
Campbell and Neade for Duff man and a rookie on the bubble,
OR
O'Meara and Neade for Selwood and a rookie on the bubble?

Aaron

Like the Duff Man trade he's not getting any cheaper and shouldn't get tagged.

You'd be mad to trade the Jaeger Bomb when he has a low BE and he's averaging 90! Wouldn't surprise me if he gets up around 500k

Rocksta

agree, and have already decided on Number 1.

Rocksta

Joel Selwood that is

Steve

Dear Jock. Ethical dilemma, couldn't we just ship Lewis and Campbell off on one of those live export 'cruises' rather than do the deed ourselves?

@emhoy

Dear Wayneo why in gods name did you suggest Hutchins, he has cost me wins as I took him ahead of Terlich. Worst trade ever 🙂

BBE

Can someone please explain to me why everyone is jumping on the Priddis bandwagon. Yes he is at a irresistible price and is a great player but he is not going to be in the top 8 midfielders come year end and will needed to be traded out. I definitely haven't got the structure for him and i wonder who does. I'll be trading Wines up this week to a 'real' premium like Watson or Cotchin who will stay in my team and benefit me more.
Cheers

Rocksta

I agree.
100-105 average VS probable 120+ averages.

Brad

The hair mate.

Sunka

It's a bloody good pick up at that price. That's why, but I'll most likely spend extra on a big gun too.

Brad

Cheers for the shout out Jock, made my bloody day. Love your work guys.

theo

hey jock what do i do with saunders? got him in last week thinking pod then gets dropped 🙁

Chris

2327 is week disapointing scores from:
Cloke, birchall, buddy, hanneberry (22 disposals for 43 sc points ripped off), and Sam Jacobs.

Happy with rookie performances from Clarke, kerridge etc. although had viney on bench

Daniel

Should of got rid of Jacobs last week, got to trade and maybe trade cloke

mills

Good work chips

John

Serious question jock,

Setanta? If he returns from injury, is he a wise trade down for Jacobs, freeing up some extra cash to upgrade some premiums in the mid.. Is he worth it as a p.o.d? Injury concerns? Tough road ahead in next 4 rounds?

John

It is hard to know whether he will be any good because he has only played gcs and melbourne averaging 88..

Sunka

Which cow goes? Sinclair, who'll most likely sit on that price… Mayes, looks good but might not rise much more… or Pittard? After the 108 from Terlich he's still got some decent cash to be made. Mayes will generate a heap but is Sinclair the best bet?

udi

sinclair should go first i guess

Callum

I need to make two trades again! Bloody have 17 after this week. Anyway, I have the port dilema, Have a couple options to trade with:

Could go to stevenson/heath TO docherty/sireakowski. and neade to franklin/priddis
OR
Neade TO kennedy and stevenson/ heath TO Duffield/ Hanley/ Birchall
OR
Stevenson/heath TO Docherty/ Searikowski AND stevenson/heath TO Hanley/ Birch/ Hanley.

Also have rowe but i will trade him when i can. Any Thoughts on these trades?

Daniel

1 but maybe Heath/ Stevenson to thurlow

Daniel

So many good cheap players this week but I’m thinking of doing

Gibbs to priddis

M.Murphy to Dangerfield

OR

Gibbs to Priddis

Cloke to a good premium Ruckman (cox to forward)

Advice would be great thanks

MooseKnuckle

Why are you trading Gibbs?

Daniel

What about hartlett to priddis and who for Cloke out of Goldstein, dangerfield or any other players in the forward, ruck or mid

hassa

kee em both and use cloke for a mid and grab hannath

Andrew

Trading Premium Players on side way trading not the smartest thing to do.

Bart

After crunching some numbers I've decided to cut both Hartlett & Zorko this week.
Combined they are projected to drop $84.5K!

So my plan is this:
Out: Hartlett & Zorko In: Vlastuin & S. Johnson
This will leave me a war chest of $339.9K for next round to chase Buddy & possibly Priddis.

My team would look like this for Rnd 8.
Def: Goddard, Birchall, Hanley, Heppell, Goodes, Vlastuin. Int: Terlich & Laird
C: Ablett, Swan, Watson, Dangerfield, Wingard, Moloney, O'Meara, Evans Int: Kommer & Saunders
R: Maric, Leuenberger. Int: Blicavs & Rowe
Fwds: Cox, Rockliff, J. Kennedy, S. Johnson, Le cras, S Dwyer Int: J. Neade & Macaffer

With plans to trade out Neade & one of Evans, Dwyer or Wingard next rnd.

Leeroy

Lads give me your opinion:

1. O'meara to Danger
2. Wines to Priddis
3. Neade to Bartel
4. Neade to Franklin

Can only do one of the above options !!

Thanks heaps.

udi

get nead out first. traded out both neade and wines this morning.

neade to bartel looks good

dools

G'day udi,
Get on Dangermouse NOWc an you do it? If not Bartel is Good

James

keep O'Meara cos he is good get rid of Wines or Neade

Liam

Should we be keeping Macaffer/Dwyer on the bench for the rest of the season, or looking to some rookies on the bubble to trade down to?

udi

i ll be trading both of them before round 13.

laterra2511

Cheap def?
any ideas ??? around 200k

Paul

Downgrading Harteltt to Priddis or Hodge? Thoughts please.

dools

'day Paul, You have hartlett…. You have to keep him mate ya I know 26/8 sucks but you got him for a reason…. he can play…You will trade him for hodge/priddis you will be looking at him (scores) for eva… Hodge will score well as long as the Hawks (spit) win but if in he has to stay in…a b it like Hartlett Priddis has never scored great when the Weagles loose never mind the 5 for the KO cheap yes premium yes but he has to be a steeping stone to Ultra

chandanrajdb

Hi Guys,

2 Trades this week….$203,800 in the bank….

Option 1:
Out: Hartlett & Zorko
In: Hanley & Steve J
Will be left with $80,600 after the above trades…..this trade option is because of frustration…………i know we shouldn't be doing the sideways trade…..but Hartlett and Zorko too inconsistent for their money……."Hartlett" especially Ridiculous….29 SC points from a premium player not worth I think……..

Option 2:
Out: Hartlett & Wines
In: Hanley & Priddis
will be left with $88,500 after the above trades….

Option 3:
Out: Neade & Wines
In: Priddis & Ben Kennedy (Collingwood)
Will be left with $291,100 after the above trades…..

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated……

Thank you,
Raj….

udi

option 3 for me. hartlett will bounce back. i traded neade and wines

chandanrajdb

Hi udi,

Thanks for your suggestion above mate….Much appreciated……..

Harry

Would go trade option 1.. Hartlett very disappointing as with Zorko aswell. Stevie J is a very good choice..

Hank Jones

I agree on 1. With defenders struggling, Hanley seems a shining light. Stevie will outscore Priddis for sure

chandanrajdb

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your suggestion above mate….Much appreciated……..

dools

Hi Raj
saw your post the other week so here is my 2 cents
I did not appriciate the communitity replys you got but in all honesty I thought your retort was justified and correct
The delima you face is this… Can Zorko pull it out IMO Yes ..Can Hartlett score more then 30 IMO Yes your option 3 scares me B.Kennedy job assurity is well not there Priddis whom I had most of last year is a handball giver not a kicker to advantage mind you he can Tackle Hanley mate you have missed the Boat on That ship sailed 6 weeks ago However I think you would do well in a rookie like Thurlow Geel or D.Hannerberry in a week or so over Priddis
I see your need to rid your self of Pt ADL players but even now you are 2 weeks behind that somake a decsion what are yourpriorities Losing Pt Players who can score or gaining players that most of the community have (no POD)
your call

chandanrajdb

Hi Dools,

Thanks mate for your reply…….much appreciated…….

Curtis

Hey guys was wondering what your thoughts were i was gonna trade danyle pearce and macaffer or dwyer for walters and ibbotson

Josh

Sick of Jacobs clogging my rucks. I know the fellas on the podcast have said dont trade hannath in as a starter but heres my idea.

Putting Wines and Jacobs on the chopping block and grabbing JPK. If I was to bring in hannath who has clearly got job security for a few weeks with all of freo's injuries, I imagine he would still give me similar scores to what Jacobs has been doing over the last month. This also leaves me nearly 300k in the kitty, so i would be able to upgrade an evans, terlich in a couple of weeks – or even hannath and gawn into a natanui.

Unless im missing something, does this sound like a decent plan?

Daniel

Monfries for Buddy or swing into MID with Mayes then trade for Priddis?

Daniel

Wait a week for buddy, got breakeven of 140 still

samuel

hey guys my trade in/outs are:

Stevenson OUT / B.Ellis IN
Wines OUT / S. Kerridge IN

Opinions please guys! cheers

Tommy

Bit late for Brandon Ellis unfortunately buddy. He has had some big scores and is now worth more than he can generate. Kerridge has bubbled as well but there is still growth. I'd rethink. Maybe think about:

Stevenson OUT – Sierakowski IN
Wines OUT – Ben Kennedy IN

dools

Like your 2 option Kerridge is good dame good Keridge has not bubbled IMO he would be a sneaky POD and best of all can play Snrs

Harrison Vanderkley

Looking to upgrade Wines to either Hodge or Mitchell.
If I get Hodge in, it will leave cash for an upgarde for O'Meara next week, however still worried about his injuries.. like hodge's form though.. Thoughts??

Daniel

Priddis? You could nearly take omeara all season as well

Harry

yeah cheers, ive traded out wines for priddis, leaves some cash for an upgrade next week…

Hank Jones

Both great trades if your goal is to generate cash. Both still got great BE's and great JS. Sounds like winners

Hank Jones

Great stuff as always boys.
Personally im on the Buddy Bandwagon. Clarko will be all about getting the ball to him to build his confidence, accuracy will still haunt him but I think a 7-8 haul is very realistic from Buds. And that's just one game of three comfortable wins coming up.

Also, people should really be looking at Hodge. Sure he is a risk of being rested, but $414,000 and a BE of 33 (DT) ?? totally worth it. With the early bye round, he may not even be rested. But who knows ey!

Josh

Neade for Roughead or Bartel?

DT_Legend

ROUGHEAD has a great run coming up with GWS, Suns and then the Dees. He has a break-even of about 42, is priced at $427,100 and is averaging 84.43.

BARTEL has an okay run coming up with Collingwood, Port Adelaide and then the Suns. He has a break-even of about 56, is priced at $459,900 and is averaging 92.29.

If I were you, I would go for ROUGHEAD.

dools

G'day Josh Liked your choices
What it comes down to is do you need coverage in the Rucks or the Mids
Saw a glimmer of hope for the Roughstuff in the last game and great price for a punt…Bartel well you are buying a champion full stop not punting..
So your call on this one mate

Scott

What do we think of this move…

IN: Priddis OUT: Hartlett
IN: D.Martin OUT: Wines

Still have 100k in the kitty so I plan on upgrading mayes or neade to buddy next week as he will drop even further.

Team isn't looking too bad at the moment:

Goddard, Birchall, Hibberd, Heppel, Goodes, Vlastuin SUB: Stevenson, Terlich
Ablett, Pendaz, Danger, Sidebottom, Kennedy, Moloney, OMeara, Priddis SUB: Dwyer, Crouch
Cox, Leuy SUB: Rowe, Witts
Rockliff, Martin, Kennedy, Thomas, Macaffer, Kerridge SUB: Mayes, Neade

udi

get nead out first. hartlett will bounce back.

Ash

Should I pick up priddis this week for wines. But already have shuey?

joe

m priddis or d thomas?
who should i trade in

udi

D thomas

Andrew

Priddis for sure his average is over a 100 if you take out his score of 5 when he got knocked out against Port. Daisy does the 120 one week and 50 the next

Robert

Thought

Wines to any midfielder besides omera swan ablett moloney danger hepple Thomas cotchin ????????

And is it a good idea to get rid of stevenson and get thurlow

Jim

Priddis, Watson, Deledio……Griffen as a POD? Why not.

Andrew

Priddis, Watson, JPK or J Selwood

chandanrajdb

Deledio for mine……bottomed out and a very consistent performer over the last 5 years……..

Jacob J.

Some good boys on the BUBBLE to trade in????

Suggestions will be appreciated!!!!!!!

tom

best cash cows to downgrade to?
no obvious ones sticking out to me

tom

get frost? or is he too close to the chopping block?

joey

if your talking about jack frost from collingwood, he has done his pcl and is out for at least 6 weeks.

Ocker

Will Sierakowski a defender from NTH.

Jacob J.

Some good Mid-Pricer Options??

Jim

what position?

Jacob J.

Def or Forward

Jim

Goodes, B.
Daisy.
Duff. (kind of midpriced)

Jim

Deledio, Cotchin or Martin in for Wines? I think I've already come to a conclusion, but you know what its like! What do you guys think? Cheers.

TOM

Deledio only has big scores when Cotchin doesn't play. So not Deledio.
Cotchin, i believe is good. But he can't seem to produce the 130+ scores

I would go with martin

Andrew

COTCHIN is a gun will bounce back big time.

dools

G'day Jim
Hre is your reply "Lids Mate i WANT Him but for the trades I'm, 2 k short

chandanrajdb

Hi Jim,

IMO……I would probably be going to Deledio…….Very Consistent performer over the last 5 years……and he has bottomed out…..right time to pick him up I think……

TOM

What's the better option!?

OUT: Rowe (FWD)

IN: Franklin or Daisey!?

WHICH ONE IS BETTER!?!?

Jim

Depends. We all know what Franklin is capable of. Do you want to miss out when he has a cracker? Very probable over the next 3. We also know what he can do at the other end of the spectrum too. Daisy, however, could turn out to be a little more reliable from here on in. May not score those big ones though.

Any chance of getting your opinion on my post just above? Cheers.

Daniel

Wait a week for buddy. If he gets a big score, he's not going to go up much anyway with a breakeven of 140

Andrew

What are thoughts on Ryan Griffen?

Jim

Could be in my next trades after round 8.

Tom

ok so i have Neade, Dwyer, Macaffer, Stevenson and Griffin who has done his acl. Which rookie should i downgrade first! and should i turn griffin into mcevoy or goldstein?

Daniel

Griffen into goldstein

Phil

Who do you reckon is the best downgrade option for Neade, not many options but im looking at Kerridge, B.Kennedy or Mitchell?

udi

neade

Liam

Is anyone else sick of S.Jacobs? his highest score in the last 4 games is 75!

Mr D.

they call him the sauce, but i’ve started calling him the menstruation… cos hes bleeding cash…

Dave

I have both LeCras and JJ Kennedy in my forward line. Is it time to cut one of them loose and bring in a premium?

And if so, who would be first to go?

Liam

LeCras for me, up to buddy this week

Rocksta

JJ Kennedy is a premium!

chandanrajdb

LeCras to Steve J…..if you can…..

Or

LeCras to N Riewoldt………if you can afford…..

Or

Wait for one more week and get Nic Nat for LeCras…….his price will reduce by 50k after this round based on SC gold projection……

Emily

Possible Trades:

Westhoff Out, N. Riewoldt In
Heath Out, Sierakowski In

Or

Maric Out, Goldstein In
Heath Out, Sierakowski In

or should I maybe look at getting in someone like Priddis?
any thoughts?

SPIFFLICATOR

1. Hoff is a spud and Maric is a keeper

chandanrajdb

Like the Option 1 mate……IMO…..looks good to me…..

matt

can anyone tell me a bit about ben kennedy (coll) seems the only downgrade option for neade(fwd) this week..
Is he worth it or should i hold off till something better comes along and risk losing $$$?
other trade at this stage is the wines to priddis trade..

Rocksta

Luke Ball will be back this week and Beamer back in a couple.
It's unlikely he will play much after the next 2.
I'd wait
Nb. I'm a Collingwood supporter

chandanrajdb

B Staker from Brisbane Lions…..yes he hasnt played a game yet….but every possibility of him playing this week…..and he is DPP (DEF/FWD)……worth $128k…..

See the teams tomorrow night and if he is named i would probably be downgrading Neade to him…..

Art Vandelay

Neade or Stevenson for the chop?

Rocksta

Both

Art Vandelay

Dunno if I can do both as I only have 37k in the bank I have Wines a strong midfield and forward line backs causing me headaches only 3 premiums.

Nick

Fellas, would this be a decent idea. Hear me out.
I have the likes of vines, horlin smith, vines, omera and wines battling it out for 2 or three mid spots this week. I also have brad crouch on the bench.
Now lets say that I cant decide who will get the better score between two of them, say horlin smith and wines, then could i put them both on the bench and both as emergencies. then i would have crouch on the field. Then i could see who gets the best score out of them and that score would go in instead of crouch who will get a 0.
seems okay? I know its a dangerous game using the emergencies like that, its more just having a gamble.
Not saying Id do it, more just seeking out what you guys think you would do. Just an idea.

Nick

Viney and wines*…. its very late, i should be in bed haha so addictive!

Art Vandelay

Can you not trade up Wines mate and downgrade a Horlin Smith for another premo midfielder?

Ocker

If you put both in as emergencies you will get the LOWEST score. Use your good judgement, I normally go with the one with the highest average when I can't make up my mind.
Good Luck.

Tim

This week trades

Trade1 out: wines in Thurlow move Vlastuin to mids

Trade2 out Neade in Franklin

Any advice for other trades or are these one good?

SPIFFLICATOR

Difficult, Neade is the obvious out but not for Buddy, he's a 'shit pick' as Crouching would say. Try Daisy or B Harvey instead of Buddy

chandanrajdb

I would probably wait for one more week to get Franklin in…..has got a high BE & i think he will reduce in price a bit more…….and also possibility of Hawks resting some of the senior players…….

thomas conron

which path should i take jock
option 1: wines out in Watson, yarran out in hanley
option 2: neade out Franklin in, yarran out in hanley
i would be blessed to have a response from you …………

mcareec

I reckon number 2 franklin is gonna go crazy

mcareec

use your own name that is my name jmizz

mcareec

jmizzle

SPIFFLICATOR

No way, his head is elsewhere I predict more disappointment.

chandanrajdb

Option 1 mate IMO…….

You can actually wait for one more week to get Watson……his BE is high……will reduce in price a bit more after this round…..IMO…..

May be consider Deledio if you don't have him……i think he has bottomed out and they are up against Melbourne this week….which means more points…….

Up to you mate…….Good Luck….

Kris

Hey guys first time on this website looking for some sc advice..my thoughts on trade this week r: 1. Stevenson to Colquhoun then 2. Wines to Gazza

udi

sounds good to me. its time to get the port boys out

Jeremy

Have 160k sitting in the cap.. Couple of options this week:

1. Straight swap of Matt Jones to Priddis, 28k left over.
Positives: Obviously a higher scoring player
Negatives: Matt Jones is set to increase in value another 30k (approx) next week, which is more than Priddis

2. Downgrade Stevenson to Sierakowski, Thurlow etc, and upgrade Neade to a premo forward, i.e Riewoldt, Stevie J, Walker, Martin, Petrie, Boomer etc.

Which is the more pressing issue? Getting Priddis, or ditching the port boys?
Cheers

udi

option 2

Stevo

Here here. Option 2

chandanrajdb

Option 2 with Steve J as Premium FWD…..IMO….

Good Luck…

Eugene

I can bring in one of the following premos this round, who should I do?

Selwood
Deledio
Hanley

Stevo

Ultra reliable Selwood!

chandanrajdb

Deledio…..IMO

Reason is….he is cheap at the moment and a very consistent player over the last 5 years who has averaged more than 100…..and last couple of years averaged 111 and more……

Joel Selwood on the on the other hand has got a higher BE and may reduce in value a bit more…….may be next week he will be good……IMO….

Good luck……

gore

Time to shed some port boys.

OUT – Wines
IN – Priddis

Out – Stevensen
In – ?????

Would like to keep expense to under 300k for Stevensen upgrade/downgrade as have some future trades need to hang on to money for.

Have I missed the boat with Vlastuin at 212k BE-50?

Ocker

Will Sierakowski from North Melbourne is a back rookie on the bubble this week.
Good Luck.

Old Ocker.

Stevo

Not a big fan of Sierakowski… I'd rather hold a week and see how old mate Thurlow goes!

Ocker

I agree Stevo but if you need someone this week Sierakowski is the boy.
I will probably put him in this week. IF he is in the team.
Then I can put in Thurlow in next week, I don't like putting rookies in until they are on the bubble and named in the team.
Good Luck

Old Ocker

lee1201

B Goodes in, stevensen out.

Stove

Help me out fellas

Better off to bring in Priddis or Franklin?

Thinking I can bring in Priddis this week and Franklin next…

Don't wanna miss out on a monster score from buddy, but he only scored 80something against gws last year so with his BE of 145 his price could drop even further…

Whaddya reckon? Thoughts / suggestions???

Ocker

Stove,
Priddis at his price is a must have. "Just do it"
Good Luck

Old Ocker

Stevo

So, I need to jump off the sinking ship that is "Port Adelaide Power"

My question to the community is:

Who is a better downgrade target to get rid of Jake Neade??

Ben Kennedy? TU
Jesse Lonergan? TD

Jjj

Is it time for Moloney to go? Performed very well for me but now has an extremely tough run of opponents, and a breakeven of 101 to go with it. Thoughts?

Gillie4

Yeah i think so if you don't have any issues. I have him and I would if I had no issues! I'd get rid of your rookies first tho. Because Moloney is averaging 100 where the rookies are inconsistent.

JD_Cereal

This week: Hartlett > Priddis, Jacobs > Hannath
Next Week: Macaffer or Rowe > Buddy, Moloney or Wines > Jobe Watson
Thoughts?

frank

Going Griffin down to Hannath and Neade to Priddis this week, then with the 150k i'll go Dwyer/Macaffer/Mayes to Buddy next week. Exciting stuff
