Jock Reynolds Fantasy Footy Podcast – Bloody Byes

Supercoach bye time

There is nowhere to run. There is nowhere to hide. The byes are here our beloved community.

We stand here this week looking out over a battlefield strewn with land mines. Watch your step. The inexperienced will fall away this week – some will burn too many trades. Some will outsmart themselves trying to trade too aggressively around the byes. Some will refuse to take the medicine that they need to digest over the next 3 weeks.

Will you come out the other end in a stronger position than your rivals?

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

Jock Reynolds

    Who do you get rid of first? Jaeger o'meara or dean terlich?

    • Adsey says:

      whoever has the higher breakeven!

    • Anthony says:

      Whoever has the most achievable BE

    • Jacko says:

      Keep omeara so he can play round 11 and 12, get rid of terlich after round 11, he has the round 12 bye. Then omeara has the round 13, so that’s the time to get rid of him

  2. BuddyBirch says:

    After two horribly low scores in a row, I'm well out of contention for the 50k. But I've listened to your advice, stuck with my premiums and I'm looking at 2300+ this week. You're a bloody legend Jock! And Crouching. And Higgo. But especially Wayno with his miraculous hot tip!!! Not so keen on Braxton though.

  3. SCaddict says:

    Agree with you lads that identifying who are the must have defence premiums has been perhaps the greatest fantasy football challenge in 2013. It's frankly been a a nightmare with all the form swings, injuries and opposition coaches wising up to curtailing the influence of quality rebounding defenders.

    Already burnt more trades in that line than I care to mention with the likes of Hartlett and the Birch letting me down at various stages.

    However with my onfield mids and forwards now set I need to sort out my R2 to take to the finals along with Nic Nat as my R1.

    Who does the community reckon is the best ruckman to take into Superocach finals out of Goldy, Big Boy, Maric, Minnow or someone else? Already have Cox in the forward line as swing ruck backup.

    • Virtual says:

      I'm making Minson a priority after his bye.

      • SCaddict says:

        Yeah he does look the pick of the litter right now doesn't he. I guess I will just have to pony up the hefty cash differential then, once the Blitz has fully fattened around Rd 14/15 and hope the Big Wilba has a quietish game or two between now and then.

        • pie.of.god says:

          communities on him too apparently – plenty of reports of of Minow for captain this week – 133 aint bad

          • SCaddict says:

            Ok thanks for that. I took a punt on Stevie J as C and it backfired badly. Should've banked Swanny's 131 as VC but got greedy. Live and learn ha ha.

            By the way I pressed thumbs down on your comment accidentally. Meant to press thumbs up but my fat finger pressed thumbs down on the ipad mini by mistake. Whoops!

            • pie.of.god says:

              should get urself a homer simpson dialling wand. I fell asleep at the wheel on saturday night and forgot to swing C to GAJ, missed the 129 for NicNats 104…not for the faint hearted

      • Birch's Buddy says:

        Same here.

  4. Tyler says:

    I was thinking of downgrading Neade and Viney this week so I can earn some cash to upgrade O'meara or Evans for a Fyfe after his bye round or even maybe Swan who's losing value , Should I downgrade them 2 this week or hold off the trades ?

  5. Tyler says:

    Also , I have Maric and Nic Nac in the rucks , should I take the 107 from Blicavs and put Ivan on the bench or take the risk ?

  6. Bomber brigade says:

    Yep hibberd all aus half back just keeps delivering I might make some cash from Jim Webster and get him in what do yous thinj

    • jockreynolds says:

      Still can't bring myself to be happy that he'll come home strong enough… want to see a full season out of him at this output I reckon. Also his SC finals run looks hard

  7. jeremey says:

    how do i do emergency ruck loop hole? ive got blicavs and currie on the bench and sam jacobs and maric in ruck 1 & 2 can i do it?

    • Ronny says:

      Sub in Currie for Maric and make sure that you have Blicavs as your emergency so that he's score of 107 will count.

      • Johnno B says:

        Can't sub in Currie, he already played bro.

        • SCaddict says:

          Yes that's right. Jeremey needed to make this move before the Kangas played yesterday. Will just have to hope big Ivan racks up a tonne tonight.

  8. Peanutz says:

    Just listened(my usual start of working week routine).
    Thank you Jock, Higgo and Crouching! BRILLIANT EPISODE that had my mates at work laughing at me for laughing so much(headphones in). In fact, I don't listen so much for the gold SC tips anymore, I just listen for the characters that I am really enjoying.
    Placental disposal, Ivan Vardy, Wayno, …. you guys are a rare talent.
    I am ready for a good working week now.
    P.s. I just hit the donate button. Worth every cent!

  9. jeremey says:

    how do i do emergency ruck loop hole? ive got blicavs and currie on the bench and sam jacobs and maric in ruck 1 & 2 can i do it?

    • Choppers says:

      No. you needed to move Currie to the field and Maric to the bench BEFORE North played yesterday, with the "E" on Blicavs. Just hope Maric scores more than Blic.

  10. Chicko says:

    Absolute gold from Wayno and his Dad "hanging on to some magazines from the 80's", have actually dribbled my coffee on my shirt at work!

  11. Dools says:

    Excellent entertainment yet again Jock and Co.

    I’m still laughing at the Crouching Tigers pill episode from last week, and backed up again by Wayno’s dads “Car Magazines” Gold lads

  12. Remy says:

    Any thoughts on a Moloney to Swan trade?

    • @MRB37 says:

      It's one i'm thinking about, Remy. Maloney looks cooked and his 30 score means he'll lose even more cash over the next two rounds. He's done.

      • Remy says:

        Yeah, and I think he's under an injury cloud plus Swan may not be cheaper than this for the rest of the year.

  13. Bundybear says:

    Do we have to do two trades a week? I was told if we dont we lose them. Please let me know if thats true or not

    • Gilly says:

      In Dream Team you get two trades a week that you lose if you don't use. In Supercoach you use them as you want

      • Bundybear says:

        Thankyou for that. I play both and thought it workd the same in both. thankyou for the info.

    • jockreynolds says:

      Nah not true mate – but in Supercoach we do get THREE trades in each of the next 3 weeks only

  14. @MRB37 says:

    I gotta stop listening to the podcast on the tram ride to work in the morning. I'm trying not to laugh and I just end up looking like a maniac who's giggling to himself.

    Moloney's poor score is annoying. I was hoping to keep him until after the byes, but that 30 score is going to ruin his cash price for the next 3 and he's SOOOOO close to being a cheap upgrade to a Swan or Selwood type. So i'll have to get off him in Rd 12 I think.

    I'm with Crouching One, my team is shot, so I gotta go for the league win, not the $50K like I was aiming for at the start of the year. Although it's frustrating, Birchall finally gets another decent score, only to see Hanley get tagged out of the game. Jacobs managed a decent return in poor weather, so there's that at least.

    • Sunka says:

      What is your overall rank mate? I'm 4,400ish and still feel like I've got a slim chance of the overall with a nice looking team now.

      • @MRB37 says:

        I'm 16,499, which is a big disappointment for me this year as I don't think I ever dropped below 2500 last year.

  15. Rory says:

    Did anyone consider getting Joel bloody selwood at 510k he’s dirt cheap and what about Kyle Martin definitely has potential what about Cochin?

    • Rocksta says:

      I got on Joel 2 weeks ago but I have to say he is concerning me.
      Joel is ussually a very consistent performer. Last year, he only scored less than 100 3 times in the entire season.
      This year, he has scored less than 100 5 times in 10 rounds, with the last 3 on the trot ( although he was subbed at 3/4 time last week and thus we may forgive that one).
      Anyhow, Im stuck with him now but he definitely isnt travelling that well. I reckon he's carrying somehing and hoperfully the Round 12 bye will be just the tonic he needs.

    • Remy says:

      Hey Rory, I'd not even consider Selwood and go for Swanny he is probably not going to be cheaper than this for the rest of this year plus Swan's got Melbourne this week.
      Expect Swanny to pump out huge scores for the rest of the year.

    • Mike says:

      your bloody right mate 491k bargain basement. Tom Mitchel good as well

    • jockreynolds says:

      I just keep thinking poor old Joel will get too old before his time. Love the way the little gun throws himself in.. but a matter of time before the LTI comes his way I reckon

  16. Osh says:

    Who's a better option after the bye: Barlow, Ryan Griffen or Cotchin?

    • Rocksta says:

      Freo have GWS,Melb,Port and Saints in the Supercoach Finals Rounds 20 – 23, as alluded to in Jock's Podcasts.
      Apart from the fact that you simply cannot ignore this fact, Barlow is back to his best this year having fully recovered from his very serious injury from several years ago.

    • Rocksta says:

      That said, I reckon you go Cotchin, and leave one rookie in the midfield until around Round 17 to upgrade to Barlow.

    • hawkeyedhawk says:

      I have barlow in my team he is in my opinion better than cotchin. Ryan griffin is turning in some awesome numbers. Initially i was annoyed with Barlow, great player, poor returns but he is now coming good.

  17. David says:

    Is Maric going to perform tonight or another dud game from the mullet?

  18. Daniel says:

    Another great podcast jock and the crew! Thought it might be time to review my team since it's mid season. Think might have to trade through the bye rounds so I can have a nearly full premium team.
    Goddard, Gibbs, Dixon, vlastuin, terlich, b.goodes (thurlow, docherty)
    Ablett, pendlebury, swan, Watson, Murphy, wingard, priddis, o'meara (kommer, crouch)
    Leuenberger, kreuzer (blicavs, currie)
    Bartel, rockliff, cox, jj Kennedy,, staker (Mayes, daniher)
    Thinking of doing with $541700 in the warchest at the moment
    Round 11
    Leuenberger to Minson
    Kommer to T. Mitchell (so can do other trades in other bye rounds)
    Docherty to hartlett
    Round 12
    O'meara to fyfe
    B.goodes to d.martin (switch staker to def)
    Terlich to b.ellis
    Round 13
    Wingard to j.selwood
    5 trades left for rest of season and around $40000 left for rest of season
    Advice would be greatly appreciated thanks

    • Rocksta says:

      5 trades left after byes simply not enough, whether you are going for league Glory or the $50K!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Jay says:

        Agree – 5 trades simply not going to be enough – injuries likely to occur later in the season – have some trades up your sleeve going into SC finals…..also Leuy to Minson in R11 is a bit of a wasted trade IMO – can do that in R12 – As the guys suggested in the Podcast, HOLD for this week…

  19. FrontPocket says:

    Pardon me, but I'm gonna have a rant.

    Monday night footy. In SuperCoach land we're a bit iffy on the whole idea of Monday night footy because it means we've got an extra day of nail biting and unknowns and we have to endure it all whilst trying to earn a living and ignoring all those fantasy footy questions that remain unanswered that we're trained into expecting to be answered come Sunday evening.

    The saving grace of this whole farce is being able to come home from work, have a nice family dinner, put the kids to bed, and then get serious for a bonus game of footy on the TV. A great way to end the worst day of the week.

    Except, however, when the Monday night footy hasn't been picked up by the champion of free-to-air landscape Channel Seven.

    The NAB wants to "footify" Australia.

    The AFL wants to support grass roots footy, get the kids involved, make a family occasion. I've got a tip for the AFL: know your market.

    Who loves Aussie Rules football? Everyone

    Who has Foxtel? Families that probably aren't going to let their children seriously pursue careers in Aussie Rules.

    Who doesn't have Foxtel? Families that are struggling to pay off the loans they got to buy their iPhones. Families that need My Budget. Families that need Chrisco. Families that had to forego the tattoo of their children's names around their necks. Families that need the joy that Australian Rules Football can provide in order to make their daily grind that bit more bearable.

    Grass Roots aren't gold plated.

    (P.S. I could actually fit Foxtel into my monthly budget, but it's 98% trash and that ain't value for money in my book. That does take the edge off this rant, but either way, you can't seriously say you're encouraging grass roots footy and emerging markets if you limit your viewing audience to a minority)


    • Bruce says:

      Fantastic Comment! Agree 100% perhaps there needs to be a Facebook protest page or other?

    • Ocker says:

      Rant all you like FrontPocket I am right with you. I am a disability pensioner and very frustrated that I couldn't watch Richmond thrash the Eagles. I have asked Austar to give me sports only but you have to have the basic package crap and waste money. The AFL and 7 have well and truly stuffed up this year.

    • Birch's Buddy says:

      Agreed mate!

    • Nicko says:

      Buy the AFL app.. only about $90 and you can watch every game. Hook your phone up to your TV and enjoy. (as long as you have a decent internet connection, which in this day and age, everybody does)

    • jockreynolds says:

      One of the best comments ever posted in these majestic forums pocket and my complete respect to your argument.. and for your point of view.

      Sick to death of this game pandering to the FAT CATS FROM CITY HALL. Nothing pisses me off more that Grand Final Day – grass roots fans can GET STUFFED and the bloody corporates fill the stadium.

      RUBBISH it is

      • FrontPocket says:

        You compliment me beyond my deserving Jock, humble thanks.

        I don't tee off very often, but when I do, I try to make it worthwhile. CHEERS to Grass Roots Footy, and CHEERS to community spirit.

        Give my regards to Braxton, there are such things as necessary evils

  20. Sunka says:

    Subbed Cox to the bench for Sinclair at the last minute to take Macaffer's 100. Looking like a good move! Gotta love the loopholes…adds another dimension to the great game.

  21. John says:

    Higgo – Will the captains loophole work the same way during the bye rounds? Anything we need to understand to get this right over the next three weeks?

  22. footyinme says:

    Dusty 67? what's that about Supercoach. Tell you what it is 25 touches and a goal means he was average at best. I want to laugh but I have him ….sigh

  23. John says:

    Dusty's disposal was not very good with only 54% efficiency which dropped his points for the night.

  24. Sloan says:

    Better FWD upgrade: Robinson or Goodes?

  25. Remy says:

    Is Luke Ball a good trade in option for O'meara?, or are there any other good cheap mid's to have a look at?

    • Jay says:

      I'm not convinced on Luke Ball – maybe upgrade O'Meara to a Barlow or Fyfe or maybe better option to downgrade him to Tom Mitchell or Kyle Martin and use that cash to upgrade else where

  26. ABC says:

    Where do you get your scores that you read out in the podcast Jock?!
    They're almost always wrong!

  27. Jay says:

    With all the uncertainty and tagging in the defense line – seriously considering holding onto B. Goodes and Vlastuin – both producing consistent points and both have good JS? Was considering Duffield and/or Hanley after their bye, but seeing 83 and 49 for those two doesn't fill me with a lot of confidence….Seeing what happened to Birch, same seems to be happening to teams……..Vlastuin and Goodes are unlikely to be tagged as there are far more dangerous players in their respective teams for them to be tagged……Is it worth keeping them or should upgrade them to the so-called "Premiums" that will be tagged till the cows come home?

    • chandanrajdb says:

      Hi Jay,

      I am in exactly same situation….I am leaning towards holding both of them in my team……DEFENDERS this year is a looking like a total mess ATM… confidence in bringing in any premium defenders………

      My Backline Currently,

      Goddard, Heppell, Hartlett, H Shaw, Dixon, Goodes, Vlastuin & Terlich………


      • Jay says:

        Exactly mate….Def is a mess, so looking at Def upgrades last, get MIDs and FWDs first……I'm looking to hold both Vlastuin and Goodes…….one R12 trade I'm really considering is Terlich Out -> Jordan Lewis (Staker DPP)

  28. The Rookie! says:

    Hello Community, I’ve got a pickle.. Moloney traded for Swan, O’Merea out for Mitchell and Leuenberger out for Nic Nat, BUT! I need to know, who would be better for my team and my cash?? Nic Nat or Toddy Goldstien…

    • Nicholas says:

      Hi Rook, to be honest both Nic Nat and Todd are excellent picks but purely based on ruck dominance you have to choose Nic Nat.
      Last night when the eagles played the tigers Cox and Nic Nat both had a combined total of 81 HO to 27, plus Naitanui gets most of his HO to advantage.

  29. Curtis says:

    Hey guys who do you reckon i should pick up Stanton, Watson, Hannebry or Swan and need either a cheap defender or foward who will score good and is in the 3rd round of byes cheers

  30. udi says:

    watson. i got booth

  31. chandanrajdb says:

    Hello Community,

    Need help…..

    What to do with Charlie Dixon?……Looks like he will make his come back through reserves this week…….which means another couple of weeks in the reserves IMO…..may be he will be back after the RD13 bye for GCS…..$482k is sitting on the bench and doing nothing……held on to him for last 4 or 5 weeks….Really not sure what to do with him……HOLD or FOLD ?

    Any opinions / suggestions / comments will be much appreciated…..


    • Jay says:

      If you've held him for 4-5 weeks already – i would lean towards holding him – i think once he's fully fit – he will be very valuable and considering current mess with Def, i would look to hold or if you've got Staker in the FWDs swing him to Def and look for a premium upgrade in the FWDs – some one like a Nic Nat?

  32. Aaron says:

    DEF – Goddard, Heppell, Gibbs, Shaw, Vlaustin, Staker (Thurlow & Saunders)

    MID – Ablett, Pendlebury, Dangerfield, Deledio, Selwood, Murphy, Fyfe, Kerrige (K, Mitchell & Crouch)

    RUCK – Cox, Jacobs (Blicavs & Currie)

    FWD – Walker, Stevie J, Bartel, Martin, Rockliff, Kennedy (Macaffer & Kennedy)

    I really want to get in Nic Nat this week and was thinking K, Mitchell – T, Mitchell & JJ, Kennedy – Naitanui. Kerrige is also giving me problems being on the field.

    Thoughts appreciated.

  33. Adam V says:

    Dont forget over the next 3 rounds only 18 players score not 22

  34. Adam V says:

    Really dont want to trade but really considering trading O'Meara this week as he is highly unlikely to get his BE and don't want to lose out on cash.
    Maybe down to Mitchell or even up not sure.

    • Jay says:

      Downgrade, take the cash for mass upgrade next week – with likes of Barlow, Fyfe, Mundy, S. Mitchell, Lewis, Roughead available after their bye!

      • Jay says:

        Sorry that was for the wrong post – I would still keep JJK, 90+ 5rd average!! I think he maybe a keeper till late in the season…..I may look at upgrading Def first……your MID and FWD line is pretty solid…

  35. Luke says:

    DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, H Shaw, Terlich, B Goodes, Vlastuin (Thurlow, N Wright)

    MIDS: Ablett, Pendlebury, Watson, J Kennedy, Dangerfield, Priddis, O'Meara, Cotchin, (Crouch, Kommer)

    RUCK: Cox, Hannath, (Daw, Naismith) (struggling)

    FWDS: J.Kennedy(WC), Cloke, Franklin, Monfries, Vickery, Macaffer, (B Kennedy, Staker)

    14 trades left with a tiny $4700 in the bank. Got many ideas, but unsure what to do. Keen to follow Jock's advice and get one of the Freo midfield blokes in after their bye. Team needs some work all over the shop though. Ideas lads?

  36. @MRB37 says:

    Good news for all the Tom Rockliff owners, the Herald Sun posted

    "They will get some big names back in the next few weeks – Tom Rockliff is a confirmed starter in Round 12"

    One less bye annoyance to worry about!

  37. Luke says:

    Have both Omeara and Moloney. Really want to trade out one of them, and I’m thinking of upgrading Moloney to Watson. I can afford basically any player, so should I go on with that trade or is there any other options?

  38. Dylan says:

    Wayno's spot on. No trades this week.

  39. cam says:

    when is dixon coming back? need to no!!!

  40. cam says:

    when is dixon coming back?

  41. Jonah mate says:

    do i consider andrew walker???? trading him out for rockliff because i dont think rockliff will still be fit after byes because of injury and for doughnought reasons gonna pick up walker???? anyone else for around that price who is worth considering

  42. pie.of.god says:

    i havent heard anything on j.selwood for a little while – his average is still ok, his BE is high…surely after their buy he's a proven mid looking to run a muck with a lowely run home? Jock? anyone?

    Who do you think is the best Backman under the price of 437k

  45. Benny says:

    what to do with trades? got 200k in bank
    Option 1. Leunberger- Kreuzer O'meara- pendles/kennedy/dangerfield/watson

    Option 2. Leunberger- Goldstein/minson/roughhead O'meara- Selwood

    Liking option 1 looks pretty good but selwood at under 500k is a bargain and just cant resist

  46. Robert says:

    i need help with my team because desperately

    Goodes hanley hepple Vlastuin Terlich Birchall Bench Docherty and thurlow

    I have 358,500 in left please HELP ME ASAP

    Thanks robert

  47. Robert says:

    my bench for my mid is viney and crouch Above***

  48. dannyboy says:

    jock i know you said no trades this week but im really tempted by mayes to tom mitchell. it will get me more points on the field for 2 weeks and frees up cash to trade in players in the next 2 weeks. i have moloney who im hanging to get rid of. but i have been abusing my trades with 14 left going into rd 11. do i stick fat or pull the trigger?

  49. Scott says:

    okay so i think i have a plan..

    i think im going to trade out o'meara for gibbs this week.. also going to bring in burbury on the bubble to make some extra cash

    then next week i will trade out mayes and bring in Hrovat who will be on the bubble

    then after the cats have played i will upgrade dywer to bartell/stokes, and also get in tom mitchell

    then once the pies have played i will bring in swan who should be at a decent price

    just trying to think in advance… any thoughts?

  50. Er, Significant Jock says:

    Just 2 simple trades this week:

    Viney > T. Mitchell
    O'Meara > Swan

    Viney ain't gonna play any time soon, O'Meara has peaked and Swan is dirt cheap.

    Midfield now complete:
    Swan, Pendlebury, JP Kennedy, Cotchin, Fyfe, S. Johnson, J. Selwood, Priddis (T. Mitchell, Crouch).

    Happy Days.

    • Kev says:

      Got a feeling that mitchell will find himself in the vest more often than not. I'd rather martin from the pies

  51. super says:

    hey jock im looking at two backline options

    nathan wright>duffield
    Nathan Wright>birchall and have a spare 100k to boost a forward upgrade later on

    Is there any chance birchall can turn a corner or is duffield a safer option?

  52. Jett says:

    Good advice Jock
