JR Community round 16 adviceBit of an Ashes theme to this week’s video – but as I say in the video don’t get too carried away and FOCUS on your Supercoach and Dreamteam finals assault.

Big focus on the midfield this week with many wondering what to do about Jobe Watson and who to swap him for. Enjoy and let me know your thoughts:


elM · 10/07/2013 at 21:16

bowling shane.

Remy · 10/07/2013 at 21:25

Watson to Deledio Jock? Or who would you recommend under 530k?
My midfield is Gary, Pendles, Swan, JPK, Watson, Priddis, Jac. Redden and Hannebery (sigh)

    jockreynolds · 10/07/2013 at 21:28

    I'd go Selwood or Sammy Mitchell mate

      Remy · 10/07/2013 at 21:37

      Thanks Jock, I think I'll go Sammy

      Remy · 10/07/2013 at 21:42

      One more question Jock, who should be on my field out of Mayes and Macaffer??

Izz · 10/07/2013 at 21:37

Great vid Jock. I'm having the same midfield woes with Watson but thought if there are people who dont have the current dosh to get a Pendlebury for example then would it be a good idea to whack Goddard into the mid for 1 or 2 weeks and get a defender? Saves some more money for that last swing back to a midfielder?

Saltysalts · 10/07/2013 at 21:43

Hows this dilemma; I need to replace Watson…
BUT my other midfielders are Ablett, Pendlebury, Swan, Dangerfield, Selwood, JPK and Priddis

I've got plenty of cash still…I'm tossing up between K Jack or O'Keefe…
So disregarding value, who is the best midfielder who is NOT in my team??

In my opinion, that is the question anyone with offloading Watson needs to ask themselves.

    Dan · 10/07/2013 at 23:45

    I would probably go with K Jack between they two sydney boys mentioned but if you're disregarding value maybe have a think about someone like Michael Barlow, I've got him in my team and he hasn't let me down.

    As always go with what you believe is best!

    Ham-dog · 10/07/2013 at 23:46

    You’ve neglected all the freo boys mate

      Dee · 11/07/2013 at 01:43

      Fyfe will come home very strong…. Just watch!

        Saltysalts · 11/07/2013 at 17:25

        Thanks for the feedback fellas!

        I know Freo has a lot of deserved hype with their finals run. I feel however that Jack is my man.
        I'm after the guy who's gonna score me the most points from now till the end, and I'm gonna bypass the Freo boys purely because it's too hard to say which one will score all the points and who will miss out!

dannyboy · 10/07/2013 at 21:47

hey jock should i get mitchell, danger or barlow for my omera upgrade? 230k in the kick. 5 trades left after this one. mitchell leaves me with 188k, danger 61k and barlow 87k. cheers mate love ya work

Riley · 10/07/2013 at 23:04

G'day Jock, hoping for some advice on my Watson dilemma. I've got Tommy Mitchell on the bench so am I better off downgrading watson for cash and upgrading Clisby who is starting (bad I know) to a premo or leaving Clisby on the field and trading Watson to a super premium (Swan, Danger etc.)?

Ham-dog · 10/07/2013 at 23:44

Love you too jock.

But mate, can I say; I really think the forward line has been neglected. There’s too many premos and fakey premos around, and no one has stood up. Can’t work out who to pick and who to drop!

Who do you think are the best 6 from here on out?

    Dee · 11/07/2013 at 01:45

    Stevie J, Nic Nat, Walker, Franklin, Bartel & Cloke…. Off the top of my head. lol.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 11/07/2013 at 11:13

    Rioli and Pavlich look solid pick-ups in a couple.

    My 6 would like like this: SJ, Bartel, Walker, Rioli, Nic Nat/Cox, Pavlich/Martin (watch Pav over the next few weeks. Could come home like a steam train).

Joey · 10/07/2013 at 23:46

Hey guys need some help down back…going to trade B. Goodes (Bulldogs) not sure whom to get as a defender.. Ibbotson (Freo), Thompson(Nth) McKenzie (GCS) any help would be great.

    CHRIS · 11/07/2013 at 01:27


Barry · 10/07/2013 at 23:48

Jock do I offload Deledio and upgrade him for stevie j or hold onto him.

    CHRIS · 11/07/2013 at 01:26


    Dee · 11/07/2013 at 01:46

    Definitely hold….

    jockreynolds · 11/07/2013 at 13:19

    Yeah I'd hold onto Lids mate 😉

Dee · 11/07/2013 at 01:46

Gazza and Duffield playing this week?!

    Remy · 11/07/2013 at 08:35

    Gazza will be playing Dee….Not sure on the Duffman though.

Rick Grimes · 11/07/2013 at 06:58

Does anyone else suffer itchy-finger syndrome during the week. I know I shouldn't make any more trades, but it's like I can't help myself….

    ShinbonerSpirit · 11/07/2013 at 11:15

    Hear, hear!

    jockreynolds · 11/07/2013 at 13:19

    Not a lone ranger there Rick

Pete · 11/07/2013 at 08:53

Looking for a POD in the midfield for under 530k.
Or should I play it safe and get the likes of a Sammy Mitchell / Selwood / Deledio?

Matteus · 11/07/2013 at 09:23

where you rank O'keefe jock? worth getting over selwood or barlow? cash not really an issue, but he's strong in the run home, as shown last season

Jeremy · 11/07/2013 at 09:26

Still tossing up on Watson replacements (only have 556k to spend) Current preference rankings would probably be

1: Jack

2. Mitchell

3. Bartel (gives me a very handy swing in the mids, meaning I have fwd/mid, def/mid and ruck/fwd swings.

4. Cotchin

5. O’Keefe

6. Fyfe

So leaning towards K Jack at this stage. Current mids (not including Jobe) are : Gaz, Pendlebury, Swan, Deledio, JPK, Selwood, Priddis ( T Mitchell, Saunders).

Thoughts community? Someone going to convince me that I shouldn’t replace Jobe with Jack?

    Jeremy · 11/07/2013 at 09:59

    Actually leaning towards Bartel now because of that swing, and his consistency. Worried about him getting rested though

      Dolls_87 · 11/07/2013 at 11:02

      Barlow won't be rested, nor any other Freo player, we don't have the kind of form that allows that approach.

Greg · 11/07/2013 at 09:53

Hey community I’ve got rockliff and Zorko up forward. Shall I hold onto them or trade one or both for a walker bartel Martin?

    Jeremy · 11/07/2013 at 10:03

    If you’re already at full premium, and you have trades to spare, Zorko to Bartel or Walker sounds good. I’ve got Dusty and Walker (potentially getting Bartel for Jobe this week), but I’d probably be hesitant to bring in Martin as I reckon Richmond are going to fall to pieces. Just my opinion though

      Greg · 11/07/2013 at 10:53

      Thanks Jeremy your a gentleman

    Chook · 11/07/2013 at 10:57

    i reckon bartel, he have been very consistent this season.

Chook · 11/07/2013 at 10:50

hello community. who should i trade monfries or zorko for steve johnson or just hold trade? thanks.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 11/07/2013 at 11:19

    I think bringing in SJ this week is a priority. He will feast on Melbourne this week. Get rid of Zorko out of the two (Monfries can actually string a couple of decent games together).

    Kane · 11/07/2013 at 11:59

    I wouldnt trade zorko just yet
    I think if you keep him he will reward you cone finals time

Alex · 11/07/2013 at 11:41

Trading out Watson. Who will average more from here on out? Danger, Swan or Barlow?

    Kane · 11/07/2013 at 11:58

    Hard to look past Dangerfield the great
    Hes been in terrific form and doesnt look like sliwing down

    ShinbonerSpirit · 11/07/2013 at 12:08

    They'll all score pretty similarly from here on out. I'm leaning towards Danger, who has (a couple of early dud scores aside) been in monstrous form this season. If Swan plays in midfield until the rest of the season, I'd go him second, then Barlow. But you really can't go wrong with any.

woggyboy1796 · 11/07/2013 at 12:19

Jock should i trade ellis for hanley ?

Ellis is a POD but hanley averages 100

thoughts ?

Luke · 11/07/2013 at 12:43

Also a victim of the Watson dilemma. Deciding to spend all my cash towards my last non-premium spot in my defense by upgrading Webster to Hanley, and then swapping Watson to Selwood. Midfield will then look like: Ablett, Pendlebury, Swan, Dangerfield, Selwood, Fyfe, Priddis, Cotchin. Defense will look like: Goddard, Gibbs, Shaw, Hartlett, Heppel, Hanley. What do you guys think?

Jack · 11/07/2013 at 12:45

Was going to go Watson to dalziell and tarade to danger in a few weeks but with only 5 trades will go straight to danger

    jockreynolds · 11/07/2013 at 13:20

    Yep – hold onto those trades mate with just 5 left

Doug · 11/07/2013 at 13:19

I have the Watson issue too, and there is not much talk on obtaining Griffen cause he is too pricey – but what if you had the coin?
My midfeild looks like: Pendlebury – Ablett – Dangerfield- Swan – Selwood – Watson – Delidio – Bartel (T. Mitchell – Crouch)
He is overpriced but his current 'value' is the same as Dangers.
Getting to the pointy end of the season, with the numbers that Griffen is putting up, would you see any risk of putting in Griffen?
Or would i be better off saving the coin and going for S. Mitchell, and looking to upgrade a weak link up Forward like Macaffer?

    BRAYDN · 12/07/2013 at 02:48

    upgrade foward, either way its equaling it self out by Griffin only making up for the lack in Macaffer

liam · 11/07/2013 at 20:42

Hi community big problem as I only have 4 trades left but I need to cover a defender spot. I can switch staker from forward to defence but then need to trade out a defender as one too many. I would then look ah bringing in just a cover player which would annoy with so few trades and towards end of season. Other option is I have duffield on bench so straight swap to probably Shaw. thanks so much good luck for the weekend

James · 11/07/2013 at 20:52

What about Stevie J with a soft draw. Any risk of being rested? Only score under 110 in the past 7 matches was when he tagged Gazza. Rest were over 120 with monster scores of 151 and 160. Only 575k, any thoughts?

    BRAYDN · 12/07/2013 at 02:46

    100% in, with port, west coast, sydney and brisbane for finals cant go wrong

BRAYDN · 12/07/2013 at 02:44

Thoughts on trading Watson for Stevie J and Houli for Harbrow? Any better option less than 450k in backline? was considering dempsy.
Setting up trading Nicholls and O'meara next week

James · 12/07/2013 at 06:41

what to do with brandon ellis, ? trade or keep? trade to heppel or go a cheaper opption in hanley?? thoughts jock?

ronza · 12/07/2013 at 13:48

last minute thought.. trading Franklin for Johnson.. 5 trades left 40K in the bank. 1 game clear on top in one league, 5th in the other.. thouhts..?

Timmy · 12/07/2013 at 16:15

$20,100. 3 trades left. Going for all or nothing. Thinking of sacking K Martin to boost my bank to $150k. Who should i upgrade with the last 2 trades? I don't care about finals, just high scores.

Goddard, Hanley, H.Shaw,
Gibbs, Ibbotson, McKenzie, (Docherty, Thurlow)

Pendlebury, Ablett, Danger, Swan
Selwood, Griffen, Barlow, Fyfe, (Mitchell, K Martin)

Goldstein, Naitinui, (Nicholls, Currie)

Cox, A Walker, D Martin,
Franklin, Rockliff, S Johnson, (McBean, Spangher)
