supercoach flesh for fantasyG’day community,

Well, what an interesting round of fantasy football. We lost Gaz before a ball was even kicked, premiums pulled out some big scores and Jobe Watson injured himself in the last game of the round.

So while we await the return of Stevie J, we’re faced with one of the toughest decisions of the season – what to do with Jobe? This period seems to be the calm before the SuperCoach storm, before the general starts playing with our fortunes and decisions are ended prematurely.

This whole Jobe saga is merely a stone being thrown into calm water, a ripple affect that will impact many coaches throughout the league. It’s a Jobe-heavy theme in this week’s Flesh, as we deal with the ripple before the rip.

Let’s begin!


JOEL SELWOOD (GEE) MID – $451,800 DT/$528,700 SC
– Next 5 Games: MELB (H), ADEL (A), STK (H), NM (A), PORT (H)
– Recent Scores: 73, 137, 135, 54, 151

There have been few players in the competition that have given coaches a roller-coaster ride like Joel Selwood. The consistency of previous seasons has eluded the Geelong skipper in 2013, with his average disposals down. However, in 3 of his past 4 weeks (minus Fremantle game), he’s had 34, 31 and 29 touches, so he’s starting to hit some form. With an easy run of games coming up (none v a top 8 side), Joel Selwood could be in for a big 2nd half of the season and a nice sideways trade for Jobe Watson.

MICHAEL TALIA (WBD) DEF – $305,500 DT/$379,200 SC
– Next 5 Games: ESS (H), HAW (A), WCE (H), SYD (H), CARL (A)
– Recent Scores: 69, 94, 90, 77, 129

The recently nominated Rising Star, Michael Talia has been somewhat of a revelation since coming into the Dogs side. Talia has been gathering high numbers, including 32 touches on weekend v GWS, and now should come into trade-in considerations. The Dogs love to play at Etihad and play 6 of their last 8 games there, which will suit Talia, scoring 94 and 90 in his last 2 games there. Like Colin Garland, keep an eye on Michael Talia. If scores like v GWS become regulars, Michael could be the ultimate POD come finals time.

DAVID MUNDY (FRE) MID – $475,000 DT/$534,600 SC
– Next 5 Games: WCE (A), RICH (A), ADEL (H), CARL (A), GWS (H)
– Recent Scores: 104, 131, 81, 139, 120

One of Jock’s favourite, Mundy is one to definitely consider if you need to trade Watson into someone. Has been super this season, and if last season is anything to go by, he’s cherry ripe for a huge finish this year. He’s a tall midfielder, which means that he’s able to go forward and play as a target if need be – saw this v Brisbane a few weeks ago (139 SC points). Also heavily noted is their run in the finals, and if you’ve been absent from the Jock Reynolds’ website throughout the bye period, Fremantle play GWS, Melb, Port and St Kilda through the finals. A perfect near straight swap for Jobe, a must consider.


At this stage of the season, I personally wouldn’t go trading out players willy nilly on the back of a couple of poor games. If you do trigger trade, and the bloke you trade in gets injured, that’s 2 trades you’ve burnt. Better off holding and getting a better look at the market closer to finals. However, if you’re gunning for the overall win, you’re patience won’t be as good. But that said, you would’ve weaseled out the poor scorers by now.

There is one trade that needs to be made in my opinion, no matter what your plan of attack is…

JOBE WATSON (ESS) MID – $433,500 DT/$528,900 SC
– Next 5 Games: Injured.
– Recent Scores: Won’t matter, on the sidelines

Bloody hell. How frustrating is this? If they is one player we didn’t want to get injured is Jobe Watson – an ultra premium. These are the guys we did all the downgrading and trading for, so we could get them in and bank their 120+ scores. Now, we’re trading one out. Many may consider holding him, which may work if you’ve got BARRY MITCHELL’S SON sitting on the bench. If you don’t you have him, time to move Watson on. This is a critical stage of the season, and if you’re one ultra premium down, it could affect your overall ranking/finals aspirations. A cruel blow, but must be dealt with accordingly.

Thanks again community for the inundation of questions. We’re starting to hit a critical stage in the season, and for many, a helping hand is needed. Here are the burning issues going into round 16.

mr crimmins tweet 1

ANSWER: First things first, the issue between O’Keefe and Jack is an interesting one. For mine, I would go Jack purely on his scores. Form is everything this time of year, and you can’t go past someone like Jack, who is scoring consistent 120+. As for sideways trade for Watson, it’s a frustrating decision to make given the quality of Jobe, but for me, there are a number of options. Kieren Jack is one at $555,300. Also like Joel Selwood at $528,700. They would probably be the 2 options I’d consider in replacing Watson.

mr crimmins tweet 2

ANSWER: You wouldn’t be alone in this situation, with many very close to completely their SuperCoach sides. For mine, out of those 3, Barlow is the man if you have the coin. Easy run in finals and is in great form ATM, with 7 straight scores of 100+ (including a last 5 average of 129). However, if you don’t have the coin to go up to a Barlow, Jack is the better option out of him and Selwood. Like you said, Selwood isn’t the consistent premium we were hoping this season and Jack has been a revelation. So, in that case, go Barlow, but if can’t afford, Kieren Jack.

mr crimmins tweet 3

ANSWER: Yeah this is a real interesting question, with an argument for both sides. On one hand, going to an ultra premium is just about guaranteed 120+ each week. However, PODs are what can be the different from a finals victory or not. I think your decision should depend on the form of the POD. In your case, Priddis has been a very consistent scorer; with walk up 100s every game. Stanton has been a bit more up and down, and with the injury concerns, I would strongly consider sending him to an ultra. So for mine, keep Priddis, but ignore Stanton’s potential as a POD and send him to an ultra.

mr crimmins tweet 4

ANSWER: For mine, I’d go Dean Terlich. I’ve grown to love the man as this season’s gone on. So much so that he’s now my go to benchman, can rely on him for big scores despite the side he plays for. I believe his ceiling is greater than Goodes, better to take the punt on potentially gaining 110+ than settling for 90+ from Goodes. Terlich for me.

Anyway, that’s it for this week’s Flesh. Make sure you get your questions into the community. With the events of last weekend, it’s important to remain on tap with what’s happening. All the best this weekend, and hopefully we can have an easy round of fantasy football.

Hi guys. My defence is Goddard, Gibbs, b.goodes, mckenzie, vlastuin, clisby (thurlow, docherty) and my midfield is ablett, pendlebury, swan, Watson, jpk, Barlow, cotchin, priddis (t.mitchell, crouch)
I was thinking of trading Watson and vlastuin out but I don't know who to. Got $546000 in the bank. Advice be great thanks.

    jaymac · 11/07/2013 at 13:56

    i reckon vlastuin to enright and watson to dangerfield is the way to go

      James · 11/07/2013 at 19:30

      Don't get Enright he injured

    SC Legend. · 11/07/2013 at 13:58

    Hey Daniel,
    Your defence looks like it's in need of atleast 3-4 upgrades with only a couple of premiums there.
    I would go Watson to Selwood, in my opinion, plays lots of home games and Simonds and has been getting some really good scores lately. You could even get Griffen in, can't go past he's consistent form this season!
    Definitely trade out Vlastuin with a high BE, you'd be set just getting someone like Shaw, Ibbotison or even Heppel in. Take your pick.

    Have a good one.

    Pat · 11/07/2013 at 18:05

    Daniel i'd actually trade out vlastuin and clisby to premiums. play mitchell and bench watson. crouch as emergency. then next week trade watson for k jack/mitchell/selwood etc.

    Sully321 · 12/07/2013 at 13:50

    agree with pat here mitchell seems to be scoring 100 points a game try and do vlastuin to Shaw
    then Thurlow to hanley if that's possible

    chandanrajdb · 12/07/2013 at 16:14


    OUT: Vlastuin IN: Hanley

    OUT: Watson IN: Dangerfield / Barlow / J Selwood / S Mitchell


    Daniel · 12/07/2013 at 17:48

    Thanks guys think I might do vlastuin to Hanley and Watson to dangerfield

Genco · 11/07/2013 at 13:50

G'day Mr. Crimmins. Was wondering if Zorko to Pavlich next week was a good idea.

    Sully321 · 12/07/2013 at 13:45

    whos in your foward line your Foward line?

    chandanrajdb · 12/07/2013 at 16:22

    Absolutely mate…..if Pav continues his form of last week and scores another decent score Jump on him next week for sure……I will be looking at his score this week very closely as well…..


john · 11/07/2013 at 14:11

hey community new some help! i need to upgrade luke brown from adelaide currently priced at 273,800 for my last defensive upgrade, i have 203,300 in the kitty my defense is currently B Goddard, S Thompson, H Hartlett, B Gibbs, T Mckenzie and of course luke brown my bench is (J Frost and M Clisby) who to buy!?!?! please help!

cheers john

    chandanrajdb · 11/07/2013 at 14:54

    Pearce Hanley is at a very good price……Birsbane lions have got easy run home as well……..


      john · 11/07/2013 at 14:59

      can he handle the tag though raj! ive been umming and ahing over him

        chandanrajdb · 11/07/2013 at 16:53

        I am not too sure about him handling the best taggers in the comp mate…..but you need to look at the Brisbane Lions Draw for the remainder of the season……North Melbourne, Melbourne, PA, Saints, Richmond, GWS, Bulldogs, Geelong…..I cant see any of those teams have got a best FWD taggers……IMO……I will probably be getting him now……we all know how good he can be…..

        Another thing to consider this season is…..DEFENCE this year in terms of supercoach is a total messed up position and very very inconsistent……..

        I am actually happy with Goodes or Terlich on the ground in my team to be very honest……My DEF

        Goddard, Gibbs, Heppell, Shaw, Hartlett, Goodes, Terlich, Birchall

        And I am not going to do anything in my defence……That's It for the rest of the season…….ITS set and forget for mine……really not worth giving too much thought into defence this season and especially at this time of the season……..


          john · 11/07/2013 at 19:39

          thanks heaps mate have gone ahead with the trade stuffed up two weeks ago trading out goodes instead of vlastuin have got rid of vlastuin and gone with thompson from north and upgrading brown to hanley thanks mate!!

Jack · 11/07/2013 at 14:19

Hi Community, wondering if you could help me out.. any help would be appreciated

Back: Goddard, Heppell, Shaw, Duffield, Ibbotson, Terlich (clisby + coloquon)

Mid: Ablett, Pendles, Watson, JPK, Swallow, Cotchin, Barlow, T.Mitchell (Hrovat + Martin)

Ruck: Minson, Nicholls (Daw + Rowe)

Forwards: Bartel, Cox, Buddy, Walker, Ryder, JJ.Kennedy (Daniher + Lee)

Im mainly worrying about who to trade watson for.. Cheers

    pieofgod · 11/07/2013 at 18:44

    word on the community street has been all about j.selwood and s.mitchell as proven guns on the rise both priced less than jobe. If youve got the cash though….different story…griffin/danger/swan

    good luck

    Nolz · 11/07/2013 at 23:32

    I'm in the same boat Jack. I did the sidey to Sam Mitchell. He's a magnet and uses it well. Good luck 🙂

C-JAM · 11/07/2013 at 14:40

Need Help with my Ruck fellas.

Currently team is full premo besides from my ruck . i have Spud Jacobs, T Nicholls on field with Rowe and Currie not doing much.

Thinking of getting rid of rowe, and swing nic nat from up forward, or maybe getting rid of Jacobs as well for Minson. but then i will be down a premium up forward.

8 trades left, $254k in the kitty.

This is the last pain in my proverbial. Any thoughts would be appreciated

    Matteus · 11/07/2013 at 15:49

    I think mcevoy deserves to be considered. the 53 he scored against Melbourne due to a concussion will leave his 3-round average this week, with a breakeven of 48. considerably cheap at $445,300. not sure how youre gonna fit him in, but also keep in mind that nicholls is almost premium-level too, so I would personally trade out Jacobs for mcevoy and keep nicholls on for a week or two until you can generate some cash for a fwd (via nic nat)/ruck premium. just a few thoughts for ya mate

    pieofgod · 11/07/2013 at 18:40

    it'll chew up most of your war chest….approx $175,000…but why not pick up stevie j and swing nic nat into the ruck. ride out nicholls till he plateaus (if he does) and turn him into minson or goldy with a sam rowe downgrade on the eve of finals

    only problem i could see with this (presuming you havent got Stevie J)…is your bench cover in the ruck for finals will be poor

Guest · 11/07/2013 at 14:54

Big dilemma: Griffen, Stevie J and Goldstein and I need to pick two purely on future scoring. I reckon Griffen is a lock, but who out of Stevie J and Goldstein?? Tks

    chandanrajdb · 11/07/2013 at 16:58

    IMO……Steve J & Goldstein mate……I think Griffen is way too expensive for mine…..and if you really need him you can wait for couple of weeks……will drop in price…….because last week's score of 107 will affect his price for the next 2 rounds…..


      Guest · 11/07/2013 at 18:56

      Thank you both for your output. Cash isnt a problem so I think I will go Griffen and Stevie unless anyone thinks otherwise. Griffen will hopefully continue his great form and as you said, hopefully Stevie will come out firing with a good run to come. Cheers!!

    pieofgod · 11/07/2013 at 18:37

    All guns….depends which position needs it most i reckon…goldilocks now highest scoring rck for season and Stevie J will finish strong, has just had 2 wks off and will own melbourne this weekend. Another good thing too is he's down $50'000 from where he was about 7 weeks back…and im tippin he'll get back there at the business end.
    only knock on Griffen is his price tag…he's certainly been getting it done against the best teams and the not so good ones

    good news is u cant go wrong i reckon

Chris · 11/07/2013 at 14:59

6 trades left, should I pull the trigger and upgrade Ellis to Hanley in defense (Hanley is cheaper at this stage) or ride it out? Defense at the moment is Goddard, Heppell, Goodes, Shaw, Gibbs, Ellis (Staker, Thurlow)

    pieofgod · 11/07/2013 at 18:29

    hanley, ibbotson or mckenzie….youve got the dollars and trades. I'd be jumping off Ellis too i reckon…..avg 60 odd for last 3 and BE 150….obviously capable of big scores but you've likely made your $ on him and its time to switch to a proven bck or a very consistent t-mac type.

    if your full premo now, with those trades and those dollars in the chest…your lookin good boss

    good luck

Jeremy · 11/07/2013 at 16:18

Leaning towards Bartel as a replacement for Jobe over the likes of Jack, O'keefe, Cotchin, Mitchell and Fyfe, as he's consistent, and he gives me a mid/fwd swing.

That's handy because if the likes of Walker, Martin or Rockliff miss a game or multiples, i can swing them into the mids, and take Tom Mitchells score as a replacement.

It also means that if Rockliff continues his average form, I can do the same as above, by throwing Bartel forward, and Rocky onto the midfield bench; using Tom Mitchell's score and effectively letting him become my F6.

Is the strategic benefit of Bartel's DPP worth it? Or should i just go for someone like Kieran Jack?

If i go Bartel, team will be:

Def: Goddard (Mid), Shaw, Heppell (Mid), Gibbs (Mid), McKenzie, Terlich ;(Webster, Frost)
Mid: Ablett, Pendlebury, Swan, JPK, Bartel (Fwd), Selwood, Priddis; (Mitchell, Saunders (Def)
Ruck: Nic Nat (fwd), Minson; (Witts, Currie)
Fwd: Walker (Mid), Martin (Mid), Cox (Ruck) JJK, Franklin, Rockliff (Mid); (Staker (Def), Paparone (Mid)

Dee · 11/07/2013 at 16:38

My team: SWAT SQUAD.

Rank # 26,005.

Coach: Dee


Shaw, Gibbs, Heppell, Hanley, Duffield, Hartlett.


Client, Webster.


Ablett, Pendleburry, Dangerfield, Selwood, Kennedy, Deledio, Fyfe, Priddis.


Mitchell, Horvat.


Minson, Cox.


Nicholls, Hannath.


Natanui, Bartel, Franklin, Martin, Walker, Staker.


Daniher, Rowe.

1 trade left!

Feel free to criticise, give tips, any suggestions and advices…. All would be appreciated and taken on board for future references. One thing I’ve learned this year so far is not to waste to many trades early in the season… Thanks community!

    cotchandmurph · 11/07/2013 at 17:05

    Ok my criticisesm would be less paragraphs, and how did you get to 1 trade, just hold it, but your team is very good

    ShinbonerSpirit · 11/07/2013 at 17:06

    Good team, albeit with only one trade left. Obviously, you'll hold that until the finals. Ideally, you'd get another forward premium (and Goddard), but not much you can do now.

      Dee · 11/07/2013 at 22:52

      Thanks guys….

chandanrajdb · 11/07/2013 at 17:05

Hello Community,

OK……after giving too much of a thought i have decided to do 1 trade this week……..and I need the communities thoughts / comments / suggestions / critics on it…….

Ranked 483 overall and will be left with 3 trades after this trade……..

OUT: ZORKO THE CRAP…….FINALLY I am getting rid of this DUD………

IN: Goldstein, by swinging Cox into my FWD line…….

So, what do you guys think??????


    Josh · 11/07/2013 at 17:13

    Great trade

      Kewgie · 11/07/2013 at 17:48

      That's my trade next week!

Josh · 11/07/2013 at 17:08

Hey Mr C and community,
I have 3 options for my Watson trade.

1 – straight swap to mundy, selwood or bartel (for fwd/mid DPP)

2 – Use another trade to generate cash and upgrade to barlow

3 – wait a week and play mitchell to see if anyone drops in price. I'm thinking pavlich could be a good buy.

My current midfield is GAJ, Pendles, Swan, Danger, Watson, Priddis & McVeigh
7 trades left

Thanks, community

    Kane · 12/07/2013 at 08:32

    Selwood !

@Jacko2128 · 11/07/2013 at 17:18

pendles or danger for vc?

    cotchandmurph · 11/07/2013 at 17:20


Fabian · 11/07/2013 at 18:36

Hey Community.

With Jobe out I have a question,

What is the consensus on having Mitchell(swans) as an on field, M8.??

Low on trades and looking to save them for finals, and thinking Mitchell will score close to if not the same with the likes of potential sideways trades like Selwood.


    liam · 11/07/2013 at 21:46

    I think keep trades for finals or injury. I've got 4 trades and leaving Mitchell as m8 till finals ahead of rockliff. Lots money on bench but it's about the trades

Kewgie · 11/07/2013 at 19:05

Need a good downgrade option for Macaffer. Joe Daniher doesn't seem to be getting a game anytime soon.

    liam · 11/07/2013 at 22:00

    Not sure job security but burbury from geelong cheap and will make cash

    BestCoastEagles · 12/07/2013 at 13:06

    Tom Lee

Joe · 11/07/2013 at 19:07

Well, 5 minutes ago, the squads were updated and it seems Ablett is going to play this week. Who should i play as Captain this week? Ablett or Swan?

    Mike · 12/07/2013 at 06:03

    Captains loop hole, Swan as VC.

Micka · 11/07/2013 at 19:14

Midfield sits currently as:
Ablett, Pendles, JPK, Selwood, Cotchin, O'Meara, Fyfe, Watson with T. Mitchell and K-Mart on the pine.
8 trades.
Trading out Watto would give me $552,300

Thoughts on:
Keeping Mitchell as a M8?
And what should i look to do with Watson, dont really want to burn 2 trades but will if its the be all end all.

Thanks Jock & Community love you all, c'mon bloody Smithy and Hughes tonk Swann over his head

    Kane · 11/07/2013 at 22:35

    I reckon to trade watson straight out for one of the geelong boys being Stevie J or the milestone man Joel Selwoon
    P.S. aussies arnt doind too bad Ashton Agar the magician

Callum · 11/07/2013 at 19:18

Should I trade watson out OR leave him on the pine and playm mitchell and goodes as emergency? Could use emergency loop with watson, this week is perfect for it. And if I trade watson should I get Mundy or throw rockliff in the middle and go for stevie j? I am leaning towards Mundy as he is cheaper and I have a feeling that trading in tippet last week was a huge mistake and that I will have to upgrade him.

Tom · 11/07/2013 at 19:40

My Midfield is:

Ablett, Pendles, Dangerfield, JPK, Deledio, Barlow, Priddis, Fyfe & T.Mitchell

Who should i bench out of these players? I'm thinking Fyfe because he has been down recently and T.Mitchell is getting 100+ scores?

    john · 11/07/2013 at 20:06

    cmon mate really? leaving fyfe on the pine?

    Rob · 11/07/2013 at 20:30

    Hi Tommy, I can understand that you want to put T.Mitchell on the field, he's in super form but you can't leave Fyfe on your bench mate, he is a premo who had 32 odd touches but was just down on efficiency. He maybe slightly down on form in the past few weeks however he's a great player and with Sandiland's back you can expect some large scores from him mate.

      Sully321 · 11/07/2013 at 21:25

      Think you have to bench mitchell

Remy · 11/07/2013 at 20:14

Hello, I have a dilemma, (which everyone has) I cannot decide who to trade in for Watson. These are the options I am considering: Sammy Mitchell, Deledio, Fyfe and Selwood.
Please help me guys!!!!!

    Sully321 · 11/07/2013 at 21:36

    IMO Selwood

    Daniel · 11/07/2013 at 22:29

    Mundy could be worth the punt

JB · 11/07/2013 at 20:25

What to do with Birchall, Shuey and Watson … thoughts?

    Kane · 11/07/2013 at 22:32

    Possible trades
    Watson to Joel Selwood/Sam Mitchell
    Birchall to Hartlett
    And leave Shuey for the time being especially if you have the impressive Tom Mitchell on the bench

Remy · 11/07/2013 at 20:31

Macaffer or Mayes on the field guys?

    ShinbonerSpirit · 11/07/2013 at 20:53


    Sully321 · 11/07/2013 at 21:24


jake · 11/07/2013 at 20:36


Barlow or Dangerfield? Please help me out!

    ShinbonerSpirit · 11/07/2013 at 20:52

    I prefer Dangerfield. But bear in mind he will face Crowley soon.

      James · 11/07/2013 at 21:35

      Is Dangerfield the kind of player to be affected by his tag, I have a feeling he will cope well.

        ShinbonerSpirit · 11/07/2013 at 21:46

        Much too explosive to be contained, but you never know with Crowley. Virtually un-taggable really. The early dud scores were a result of Danger being played up forward. But the problem was that there was really no one to deliver the ball forward. Then when placed in midfield, there was no one to deliver the ball to. So he plays everywhere now, scoring goals and racking up the disposals.

    Sully321 · 11/07/2013 at 21:23

    Danger shouldn't worry about Crowley to much

    BestCoastEagles · 12/07/2013 at 13:10

    Both averaging 128 for last 6 weeks. Barlow has a easy final's run home. Toss the coin maybe.

throttlefinger · 11/07/2013 at 20:37

Mr. C –

Crouch or T. MItchellson as my M8? Worried they may give Tommy boy the night off against the Giants?

    Sully321 · 11/07/2013 at 21:22


      throttlefinger · 11/07/2013 at 22:10

      Agree. Thanks Sully.

James · 11/07/2013 at 21:22

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 appreciated.

    Sully321 · 11/07/2013 at 21:26

    Don't think he will he's just had 2 weeks off with suspension

JimBob · 11/07/2013 at 21:33

Who should I go with. Naitanui, bartel, walker, martin or roughead??? I am swapping watson to the forward line and ave got mitchell as M8 and swap watson for one of the above. Would love some advice community?

    Sully321 · 11/07/2013 at 21:49

    I'd go with roughy

    James · 11/07/2013 at 22:20

    I'd go naitanui in a couple of weeks when he has dropped under 500k. I'm using Mitchell as cover for the moment for Watson to see how his injury progresses.

    Daniel · 11/07/2013 at 22:30


Sully321 · 11/07/2013 at 21:44

Danger or Pendles for the captains loophole?

    ShinbonerSpirit · 11/07/2013 at 21:49

    Pendlebury, just. And only because Adelaide is so easy to score on.

Walto · 12/07/2013 at 00:54

I'm going to take a risk and back my judgement by going with Talia , I'm trading out Thurlow for Michael Talia , was going to pick him up last week but gave him a weekto see how he'd do and he played great against GWS , looks promising . If he can get scoring consistently then my backline will be pretty solid
Team at the moment looks like
DEF: Goddard , Shaw , Hanley , Hartlett , Gibbs , M.Talia (Clisby,Docherty)
MID: Ablett, Pendlebury , Swan , Deledio , J.Selwood , Swallow , Priddis , Fyfe (T.Mitchell, Hrovat)
RK: Nic Nat , Maric (Nichols, Currie)
FWD : Cox , Martin , Franklin , Rockliff , Zorko , Staker (B.Kennedy , Daniher)

I'll wait for Stakers price to go up given his low BE and then upgrade to Bartel .

Scott · 12/07/2013 at 00:58

Swan or Ablett as captain this week? I’m leaning towards Swan this week

James · 12/07/2013 at 06:40

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

    Daniel · 12/07/2013 at 08:29

    Depends on how many trades you have left

      James · 12/07/2013 at 09:18

      i have 5 trades without yet trading

    James · 12/07/2013 at 09:17

    i have 5 trades without trading this round

James · 12/07/2013 at 06:58

start nicolls or jacobs in the ruck this week?

    Remy · 12/07/2013 at 07:46

    You have to stick with Jacobs I Reckon, just ignore his form.
    Remember Nicholls had only played 5 or so games…..

ankles · 12/07/2013 at 08:24

Rucks are Leuey, NicNat, with Nicholls and Blicavs warming the bench

Obviously a bit of cash sitting on the bench there I want to tap into. The question is should I …
1. Blicavs > Osborn (or whoever) for $270k profit
2. Leuey > Osborn for $400k profit, then play NicNat and Nicholls on field. Nicholls is averaging just a couple points below Leuey at the moment, and the cash difference would give me more trade options…

HJS · 12/07/2013 at 09:08

Just wondering if people think I should trade Marc Murphy (have had from the start!)
Have Ablett, Griff, Pendles, Swan, selwood, Priddis, Cotch (TMitch and KMart) on the bench. 6 trades left and about $116K in bank

    blake · 12/07/2013 at 11:59

    No, he probably came back a week too early and would have been a bit wary about his jaw or cheek or whatever it was. He will pick his form back up. Also last year with Andrew Carrazo in the side Marc averaged 127.9 points. This time last year Murphy went on a huge 6 game hot streak scoring 112,108,160,109,117,187 from round 16 to round 21. I reckon Murphy will start to go on fire!!!

    BestCoastEagles · 12/07/2013 at 13:16

    You won't have enough cash for the Dangerman or Barlow. So i would hold you are only going to trade someone in of the same ilk.

      Sully321 · 12/07/2013 at 13:31

      it's not worth trading him unless you bring in danger so hold on to murph

Xy Boy · 12/07/2013 at 09:31

Anyone considering bringing in young Agar this week for Watson? Very cheap around 96k and high JS with Nathan Lyon nowhere to be seen

    Rick Grimes · 12/07/2013 at 11:02

    Ashton Agar? He's a champ!

    ShinbonerSpirit · 12/07/2013 at 13:38

    Might look to bring him in next week when he's on the bubble (just to assess). His 98 on debut was very impressive.

Ant · 12/07/2013 at 09:46

I have jobe, but I can cover him with Tom Mitchell.
Do I leave jobe on the bench and play Mitchell, or do I trade jobe to someone like swan or Stevie j?

Trading to Stevie j, means I can put Stevie j forward, but then I’m stuck with playing zorko on the bench.

    toonking · 12/07/2013 at 09:58

    how many trades left?

      Ant · 12/07/2013 at 12:11

      I have 8 before making any trades this week

        BestCoastEagles · 12/07/2013 at 13:17

        SWAN !

    Sully321 · 12/07/2013 at 13:27

    Swan has been in really good form lately definitely bring him in if you can

toonking · 12/07/2013 at 09:47

Hi I've got 8 trades left. Have two options. Would appreciate your input.

Get Vlaustin out and replace him with Hanley. 1 trade
(Concerned Vlaustin is losing value….he is on my bench) Only non premium on field in backline is Staker.


Trade out Rowe for Grimley to get generate some cash and upgrade Zorko to Stevie J
(Use Stevie J up foward to replace Zorko) Only non premium on field in forwardline is La Cras

My Mids are all pretty much premiums…..

Appreciate yr thoughts

Decisions... · 12/07/2013 at 10:50

Mr Crimo and community, need some advice please for a must win game this week against top of the ladder (and good mate) in my main league – I'll try and keep it short.

The issue is like most I need to trade Watson out, but I'm also tempted to upgrade Blicavs in my rucks as my opponent has Minson and Goldy! My starting rucks are NicNat and Nicholls and I have $150k in the bank.

First option, swap Watson to Stevie J or Barlow. This gives me monster scoring power – thinking Stevie J ahead of Barlow for a big score this week against Melb. This then gives me just enough cash to bring in McEvoy for Blicavs. But is Big Boy good enough to trade in or do I hold off and just play Nicholls?

Second option, swap Watson for S Mitchell or Cotchin. Thinking Mitchell as Cotch has been a yoyo this year, and this gives me enough cash to bring in Minson.

So essentially option 2 bolsters both my MID and RUC more so, but is the scoring potential of Stevie J or Barlow trump that?

I might be splitting hairs but it's also splitting my head. Your advice is appreciated.


    Sully321 · 12/07/2013 at 13:02

    IMO option one just, only because nicholls seems to be scoring well and stevie J could go berserk againts the dees

    jockreynolds · 12/07/2013 at 13:35

    Id go with #1 – Stevie J will server you well for the rest of the season, esp. this week and Big Boy will come home strongly and reliably – his price is still reduced due to concussion etc.

      Decisions... · 12/07/2013 at 16:31

      Thanks Jock…although I've just realised I may have a better upgrade trade than Big Boy from Blicavs.

      By bringing in Stevie J, this now allows me to shift him forward and bring either Monfries or Rocky into a MID position for an upgrade.

      This would allow me to upgrade either to S Mitchell.

      Therefore, is S Mitchell a better upgrade or Big Boy.


Rick Grimes · 12/07/2013 at 11:03

Westhoff's out has helped me no end. Have wanted to dispose of him for ages.

    jockreynolds · 12/07/2013 at 13:33

    Sometimes helps when the Supercoach Gods force your hand like that doesn't it!

David · 12/07/2013 at 11:21

Do I get Hanley or Scott Thompson (NTH)?

    Kane · 12/07/2013 at 12:02


    Sully321 · 12/07/2013 at 12:42

    agree with kane
    go for hanley

    BestCoastEagles · 12/07/2013 at 13:27

    Have bought in Hanley myself this week. His price is cheap for averaging 98.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 12/07/2013 at 13:35

    Bear in mind we're going to forward tag Hanley with someone like Hine or Greenwood (the same players who shut down Cotchin/Deledio last week).

I'm tryin · 12/07/2013 at 12:25

Is it worth while sticking with the under performing luke hodge? Having only 6 trades left

    BestCoastEagles · 12/07/2013 at 13:20

    I would keep for a couple of weeks. Burn your trades closer to the final's with all the carnage going on you never know what is a round the corner .

    jockreynolds · 12/07/2013 at 13:32

    WIth only 6 trades in the kick – assuming you are after a league win and not overall – and probably either way – I'd hold onto Hodgey

AdsyA · 12/07/2013 at 12:41

My side:
B:Goddard, Hanley, Heppell, Shaw, Gibbs, Staker (J.Webster, Clisby)
M:Ablett, Pendles, JPK, Cotchin, Priddis, O'Meara, Mundy, Hartlett (T.Mitchell, K.Martin)
R: Roughead, Z.Clarke (Nicholls, Gawn)
F: Cox, Walker, JJKennedy, Franklin, Rockliff, Stevie J (B.Kennedy, T.Lee)

6 trades, $319k in bank – struggled early in a good league so after wins, and not worried about holding trades at this stage

1. Where is my most urgent upgrade (no injuries so far this week)? Who for?
2. Staker is a low BE and is probably soon ripe for culling (prob next week), but to who in the backline? A def/fwd up forward would be great so I could swing him fwd and trade in say Nic Nat but none coming to mind.
3. Is too many players from one side good or recipe for disaster? Thinking maybe trading in Barlow to the mids but then I'd have him and Mundy mid, Clarke in ruck. Also with Nic Nat, then I'd have him, Cox, Priddis and Kennedy in.
4. Or do I just hold for this week and wait for some possible price drops due to BE's?

    Sully321 · 12/07/2013 at 12:50

    thinking O'Meara ready to trade to Dane Swan or if you are looking for a POD look at Ryan O'Keefe

    BestCoastEagles · 12/07/2013 at 13:24

    If you are Looking at Nic Nat he will drop nearly 100 Gorillas in the next two. Barlow a good option having three Freo players no crime in that as they have a soft finals run.

    CashCows · 12/07/2013 at 16:52

    I would leave NicNat alone for a while, might be rested in weeks to come if WCE get a finals look in, and if they dont then my guess is he goes on ice for next season.

    Mundy is class, not probs with have him and barlow in the middle ( see pendles, swan, ball against carlton last week)

    Z Smith will be carrying sandi for a while until finals i believe. could be a switcheroo for SC finals?

    Stakes could almost hold on to a D6 if he keeps up current form, excellent swingman.

    Are you keeping harlett in the middle for DPP? if not throw him back (good back, but there are better mids) if you dump stakes( current 330k, will go 360k next week) and bring in a mid premo just about anyone with that money

    Omeara is ready to be put to bed as well..

    could dump stakes and omeara drop hartlett back, which will give 1.1m to buy in the likes of swan and selwood

    or dump clarke (BE 122) swing cox in ruck, swing staker forward, push hartlett back, dump omeara and bring in two uber prem mids with you 1.25m barlow and swan?

    downfall of all this is 4 trades left?

    clear as mud!

    Daniel · 12/07/2013 at 17:54

    Maybe upgrade hartlett to dangerfield/swan/Barlow before you think about getting rid of staker

    Skintip · 13/07/2013 at 05:48

    Leave your backline alone now. Omeara to Swan/Barlow/SMitchell and Hartlett/Staker for Bartel. Even if you dont trade it is a must that you play TMitchell on field over Hartlett or Omeara

Sully321 · 12/07/2013 at 12:45

hey community

regrettably i still have sammy jacobs, can't trade him out this week so i'm thinking of benching him and putting tom Nicholls on the field.


    David · 12/07/2013 at 12:56

    Keep him on, nicchols up against maric, jacobs up against underperforming ruck squad

    jockreynolds · 12/07/2013 at 13:31

    Yeah I reckon you have to play him onfield mate – back him in. Predecting a reasonable output from him this week

      Sully321 · 12/07/2013 at 13:42


        CashCows · 12/07/2013 at 17:10

        Who is your 4th ruck?
        Why not bench him with the E, and if he performs swap out nicholls for your 4th ruck assuming they are not playing?
        If he spuds up again, leave nicholls on.

David · 12/07/2013 at 13:31

Do I play Nicchols vs Richmond or Dawson Simpson vs Melbourne?

    Sully321 · 12/07/2013 at 13:41


    ShinbonerSpirit · 12/07/2013 at 13:41

    Nicholls hasn't put a foot wrong yet. And Maric is as useless as Birchall.

Stu · 12/07/2013 at 13:45

option 1 trade watson out for sam mitchell and trade zorko out for pavlich

option 2 trade watson for stevie j and trade zorko out for marc murphy

Any help would be appreciated community 🙂

    Sully321 · 12/07/2013 at 13:55

    IMO Option 2

    ShinbonerSpirit · 12/07/2013 at 15:05

    Of course, getting SJ is a given. Wait until Murphy shows some actual form sustained over a period of time. I like the look of Pavlich, even though he should drop over the next fortnight. Bear in mind his last six scores (excluding 2013) against WCE have been 179, 113, 74, 109, 93, 129. He could explode.

    chandanrajdb · 12/07/2013 at 16:11

    Hi Stu,

    I will probably be doing one trade this week which will be

    OUT: Watson IN: Steve J

    reason…..Try to bring in Pav instead of Murphy next week since he will drop in price after this round……Freo run during the SC finals is too good…….


    Daniel · 12/07/2013 at 17:52

    Option 1

I'm tryin · 12/07/2013 at 14:25

Thanks for your reply on hodgey, without you guys I’m nuffin

Guest · 12/07/2013 at 14:37

Barlow or Griffen?? Purely based on future scoring and cash isn't a problem.
FYI I have mundy too, and worried that Barlow and Mundy can steal points from each other.

    jake · 12/07/2013 at 15:06

    same here mate! need help

    Liam · 12/07/2013 at 15:48

    Purely based on future scoring probably Barlow, especially for SC finals with the easy run home they have.

    BestCoastEagles · 12/07/2013 at 17:35

    Barlow for me dream finals run, Griffen has Bombers, Hawks, Eagles and Swans next month i doubt he will get the freedom he has been enjoying they will tag him out you would think.

    Daniel · 12/07/2013 at 17:51


Liam · 12/07/2013 at 16:03

Hey guys, really want to bring Stevie J in but only have 5 trades left. I've got 500k so money isn't really a problem. I've got a full team playing so maybe I should save the trades. Feedback is greatly appreciated
My Midfield at the moment is: GAJ, Pendles, Swan, Watson, Swallow, Fyfe, Mundy, Selwood (T.Mitchell, Crouch)
My Forward Line: A.Walker, Buddy, N.Riewoldt, Nic Nat, JJ Kennedy, Rockliff (Staker, B.Kennedy)
I don't really want to trade Watson though as Mitchell I believe is good enough for cover.

    chandanrajdb · 12/07/2013 at 16:08

    IMO……bring Steve J this week mate…..has potential to go very big against Melbourne this week….


    OUT: Watson IN: Steve J……this also gives you the FWD/MID DPP player in your midfield…….


    liam · 12/07/2013 at 16:09

    Hi liam if your happy with Mitchell I'd upgrade rockliff to Stevie j, more consistent and higher scores, lots of home games still to come.

ShinbonerSpirit · 12/07/2013 at 17:10

Hey community. Regardless of cash, who will score more from here on out and why: O'Keefe or Selwood?

    Daniel · 12/07/2013 at 17:49

    O'keefe as he won't get tagged

    Liam · 12/07/2013 at 17:51

    Would probably say selwood as the cats have quite a few games coming up at home, but really couldn't tell u about O'Keefe because I don't really get to watch the swans to much. O'Keefe has definitely flown under the radar and would be a nice POD in the mid.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 12/07/2013 at 18:24

    Cheers boys!

Big sauss · 12/07/2013 at 17:26

Please help… Who should I get in for Watson on dreamteam not supercoach:Cornes, dangerfield, Stanton, Mitchell, jelwood, fyfe, mundy?


    Daniel · 12/07/2013 at 17:50


    ShinbonerSpirit · 12/07/2013 at 18:24

    In DT, Stanton (and maybe Fyfe/Mundy).

    Skintip · 13/07/2013 at 05:38

    Barlow by far if you can afford.

Remy · 12/07/2013 at 17:59

The word on the street is that Buddy ill not play this week…

    Remy · 12/07/2013 at 18:00


david · 12/07/2013 at 18:09

G. Ablett vs Richmond
D. Swan vs Crows

Who's likely to score higher?

    ShinbonerSpirit · 12/07/2013 at 18:26

    I'm going to go with Swan (Adelaide have been shipping more fantasy points than most clubs recently), but Ablett is a freak of nature.

    Michael · 12/07/2013 at 21:03

    Swan on 82 at H/T, hope you're on him!

    Skintip · 13/07/2013 at 05:37

    GAJ averages 135 pts. Swan has scored above that 5 times. I would go with GAJ, and if GC beat Richmond like they have done, then GAJ will get a few extra points in his back pocket also.

Liam · 12/07/2013 at 18:54

What does POD mean ?

    ShinbonerSpirit · 12/07/2013 at 18:59

    Point Of Difference.

      Liam · 12/07/2013 at 19:00

      Oh thanks ive been seeing everuone saying but no idea what it means
      Thanks 🙂

cotchandmurph · 12/07/2013 at 19:35

I dont mind the fact that Emright has been rested, because Geelong are playing Melbourne so the ball will hardley go into the backline

Pete · 12/07/2013 at 19:41

Franklin out

    Skintip · 13/07/2013 at 05:34

    yeah Franklins no use to the Hawks anymore. Probably get rested more than once.

Chris · 12/07/2013 at 19:41

Who to vice captain and captain?

Selwood, swan, pendlebury, Stevie j, ablett or someone else.. Don't have danger

    Skintip · 13/07/2013 at 05:33

    VC SJ and C GAJ

David · 12/07/2013 at 19:50

Do I trade Watson-Stevie J and Vlastuin to Hanley


Franklin-Stevie.J and Vlastuin to Hanley, put T.Mitchell on for Watson and trade Watson to Selwood next week?

Michael · 12/07/2013 at 21:10

Some advice on my team please community (although with 1 trade left I can't really do much more lol):
DEF: Goddard, Hanley, Heppell, Gibbs, Ibbotson, Ellis (Webster, Clisby)
MID: Pendles, GAJ, Swan, JPK, Bartel, Priddis, Stevie J, B Goodes (Shuey, Mitchell)
RUC: Cox, J Roughead (Nicholls, Gorringe)
FWD: A Walker, JJK, Cloke, Buddy, Rocky, NicNat (Staker, Hitchcock)
Last trade will be Shuey-H Shaw (moving Goddard into MID) then it's batten down the hatches and hope for no casualties!
Anyone else gone balls out like me?

Chris · 12/07/2013 at 22:29

Put Sam Jacobs on the bench, do I take his 80 or hope Nichols can get more?

    richard · 12/07/2013 at 22:52


    ShinbonerSpirit · 12/07/2013 at 23:19

    Try Nicholls.

richard · 12/07/2013 at 23:09

Take pendle's VC score or give Hartlett a go?

    ShinbonerSpirit · 12/07/2013 at 23:18

    I almost took you seriously there!

    Kewgie · 12/07/2013 at 23:20

    I would take Pendles score.

    Take Swan's 126 or take a punt on Ablett?

@Jacko2128 · 12/07/2013 at 23:57

take brad crouches 93? or leave tom mitchell on and use his?

    Skintip · 13/07/2013 at 05:32

    hopefully Tmitchell punches out a 130

MacDaddy · 13/07/2013 at 00:06

I know is should take Pendles on the loophole but desperate to leave the armband on Stevie J! Someone talk some bloody sense into me

    Skintip · 13/07/2013 at 05:31

    nahhh risk it. take the punt. Stevie J is my VC and will smash out 200 otherwise GAJ will be C with 180. Of course take Pendles score

Rick Grimes · 13/07/2013 at 04:50

Can someone please confirm my understanding of the captain's loophole. I have Pendles as VC and want to take his points. So i've swapped Luerenberger to bench and put Currie in starting line-up with C. Currie won't play, so Luerenberger will sub in and Pendles will be captain. Is that the way it works??

    Skintip · 13/07/2013 at 05:28

    yes. it just leaves you with no emergencies if one of your ruck pulls out

    DanGreen · 13/07/2013 at 09:16

    Yes. And if you want Leuie's points, then you need to make him emergency,

    CashCows · 13/07/2013 at 15:58

    Who is this Luerenberger you speak of?

lower back pain · 21/07/2013 at 07:05

Next time I read your site, I hope that that doesnt let down me around this one. I mean, I know it has been my choice to read, on the other hand actually imagined youd have got something fascinating to say. Just about all I notice is a bunch of whining about something that you can fix in the event you werent way too busy searching for attention.

ditta-traslochi · 25/11/2013 at 21:24

Thank you for sharing superb informations. Your website is very cool. I’m impressed by the important points that you’ve here. It reveals how effectively you perceive this kind of subject. Bookmarked this website, will come back for additional articles. An individual, my pal, ROCK! I found the info My spouse and i already explored all over the place and simply couldn’t come across.
