The weekend chin wag

Published by Jock on

Jock Reynolds - The Father of Fantasy

How are you getting on this weekend community?

Folk that held onto Sam Mitchell will be pretty chuffed with themselves for their discipline. Well done if you’ve had reward for being patient and level headed.

But this weekend will have its share of challenges that we need to unpack, so let’s get stuck in. Remember – as the weekend unfolds and you look towards your round 4 selections to leave your questions on the voice message thing by clicking the red bar. We’ll try to get as many questions into Sunday nights podcast as we can.

Lets chew the fat:

I am happy with my start of 336 from 3. I won't be using the captain loophole for Sandilands, will take the risk on Ablett.

wes

that was a great call!!!

Lawfy5

Happy with last nights numbers but still tossing up whether to trade out Ryder or Dixon. Thoughts?

Mike

Who’s longer term? GCS are saying 2 weeks for Dixon. Is Ryder out for longer?

Lawfy5

They said only one week for Ryder but he couldn’t even walk mid week. Good point though – I think Dixon might be out for longer. Oh for an honest injury assessment from these clubs!!!

Mike

419 from 4. Nice to get improvement from Pav and Suckers. Sandi as VC didn’t produce as hoped so the C goes onto Little Gary or Pendles. Still to decide which.

Although I’m sure a lot of people turned Mitchell into Swallow, and in the process added to their war chest, it was great to see the under-rated one perform after holding onto him.

Brad

Captain on Gary! Brisbane at metricon, he will run loose for 130+

Mike

Ultimately a great suggestion!

Josh

Zorko and Thomas in this week. McEvoy missing may cost me a league win this week.

Marty

Hi jock,

Who do you think I should pick as captain Ablett or Minson?

Opponent has pendlebury.

Marty

Cheers

Rooboy

I swapped Hodge to Swallow & kept Mitchell so that worked well for me. Interestingly, Langford spent most of his night tagging his opponent out of the game (& doing a great job of it). More tasks like this will likely keep his SC scores low. You have been warned!

Browno

And also had the job on Watson last week.

Leeroy

Rookie mistake* as I left Langford on with both MacDonald and Webster sitting on the pine……. not enough attention paid on a Friday night may be crucial. 371 from 4. Burnt the VC on Sandi so GAJ will be raising the bat today.

*pun intended

dan

i failed to find the pun in your comment

Fabian

Can't complain so far with suckling and Sandi hitting tons. Going with Gaz as Capt. Didn't have the big ones to chuck the C on cotchin or Danger, nor did I have the time to use them as loophole options, would have like to tho.

THE SALTSHAKER

Jock do i hold swanny? Or is buckley outta love with how he trains – would you say he will spend more time up fwd or its just till he gets fit?

Kev

Langford promised so much NAB cup. It's disappointing when you've got a predominately rookie backline. KK on the bubble this week would lose me money, hoping matty fuller gets a gig soon

Get Around It

Hi Jock. A bit dirty on the Mitchell to Swallow trade, though helped me move burn man Higgins to Zorko. Mitchell or Enright for next trade?

Oliver Klozoff

1st World problem here, but who rates as a better captain option – GAZ or Pendles? Also Jock, looking to go from Goldsmith to Jacobs in the Ruck to generate some cash. I seem to have all the right rookies so far. Whats the case for Jacobs to be a keeper if he stays fit.

canman1306

322/3 Glad I held onto Mitchell Suckers Sandi VC Didn't pay off. Should have VC Ablett like I was going to.

General Soreness

Ditto, except i will have VC on GAJ!

choppy

Jock, do you think its worth trading out the big berger for mummy? Worried his reduced output may continue based on trent west coming into the team

MightyDonsFC

I think you've already missed out on mummy's big scores, and in a bad game Berger scores 80+ so I'd hold Berger

choppy

Cheers mate, I agree. Think ill hold

Jamie

I downgraded caddy to tyson in order to upgrade matty wright to Zorko, hopefully wright doesnt come out withone of his preseason scores this week and zorko can kepp pumping out some big ones! Kept mitchel and suckling in though so thats a lready a big win!

Liam

Is anyone having trouble completing their trades? I have tried continuously the past two days and it just keeps freezing.

Sleepy

is this occurring in Dreamteam? it happens to me to and very frustrating. Working fine for me in Supercoach though.

Cash cow

Only had 2 players. Both exceeded their projected score so can't complain. Hoping for big game from May with a view to trading him and kennedy haris out for a premium forward and rookie on the bubble. Any suggestions on the premium. Already have Martin, danger, and wingard.

Callum

438 from 4, won’t take sandy as vc so tossing up between mummy, ablett and pendles. Need some help

Charlie bloody Dixon

Stuck on who to trade Dixon out to. Had to trade Barlow out and chose to get Tyson in, so worried that if I don’t sideways or upgrade Charlie my team will be too underdone this week with all my rookies. Especially because of Mcevoy not playing. Any suggestions?

Mike

I assume you're playing him FWD?

I went Dixon to Zorko, and picked up the best part of $41K.

If you're feeling ballsy go Dixon to May and pocket $172K!

Charlie bloody DIxon

Yep playing him forward.

I started with Zorko which is why a forward option is difficult. Interesting suggestion with May, started the season well – not sure if I'm ballsy enough! Was thinking of going to Duzzy.

The option I'm leaning towards is Rohan to Ambrose to pocket the cash and get in some premos next week – I can say goodbye to my rank and a league win this round though. Toughy!

Bucky

I went Dixon to Chappy, hoping it pays off!

Bailey

With Sandi’s score as vice not loophole-able I am left with the conundrum of who to pick as captain as my most expensive player is danger. These are my options

Zorko

Danger

Smurph

Beams

Swallow

McVeigh

Rockliff

Cotchin

McVeigh

Hanley

Or even Buddy or Pyke? Any suggestions welcome

Nick

beams i reckon as guthrie might go to pendles or swan

rip

Pyke for sure this week i'm expecting 130+ from the big man!

Captain joc

Danger or hanley

JJM

Murphy should score 130 with Walker back in the side.
Beams will score 130+ Guthrie will do the tagging job on Pendle like he did with Danger.

Derek

I have Guthrie. What sort of scores will be get? I have enough to upgrade to Swallow but wasn’t convinced of the Swallow hype.

Dools

G'day Derek , D. Grimes Melb $ 436 and has DPP Def/ Mid He is a next week trade in for me ATM B/E is only 78 and his current AVG is 93 . That's what I reckon Anywho mate

Bailey

Thanks for all the suggestions guys! I think I’ll go Murphy because he has a good record against Essendon

Nick

hi guys, need some advice. had vc loophole on sandi and was thinking either ablett or mummy as capt

Derek

That is what loophole for. Take a risk but have Ablett as backup

Jamie

Id go beams from that lot!

Wattsieesq

3 down and 3 tons. Pretty happy with that. Sandi could have done better given Big Boy was out. Great win by the Hawks. On track to get to September.

Wattsie

Derek

11 hawks had 100+. I was happy with Sam’s lazy 114 but not happy he sat on the bench for the last 15 mins.

Samuel

Who should I trade I'm stuck. I have Deledio, Goldstein, Rohan and Wright that I am thinking of getting rid of but need help

Tracy

I am trading out Rohan for Ambrose and then upgrading Michie to Tyson. More money all round.

Jay

Hi there Jock and community, thanks for all your help and this great website.

Just wondering who to get in out of Marc Murphy or Nathan Jones? If I went with murphy I would only have $8900 left other wise Jones would leave me around $20,000

If Laidler doesn’t get green vest do we put hime or Georgiou on the field?

BCHawks

Hey, I would definitely choose Murphy over Jones as I think his output will be higher, and yes I would put Laidler on field if he doesn't get the vest.

Scythe

Jones > Murphy

Scythe

Gee I hope Zorko doesn't spud it up this week. Traded Pav to Zorko last minute, and Pav finally came good last night. Anyway I would still assume that Zorko will score better over the course of the season though… I hope

Mick - Me Mate the Master Farter

Hi Jock

I have Brodie Grundy as my 2nd ruck with Sandi.

I am thinking of upgrading him to Mummy… What do you think?

Cheers

Mick

Kevan

Hi community, just a question regarding AFL fantasy. Supercoach have a rolling lockout, enabling last minute movements around bench players/vested players etc. Why does AFL fantasy continue with a full lockout?! Can't even interchange or change captains. This AFL Fantasy site is killing me. Supercoach and dream team only for me next season.

Derek

I tried dreamteam in past years, but I meant picking seagulls and trashbins like swan. Can’t make myself play anymore

sputnik

Yes you can. Click the 'I' button to interchange players in AFL fanatsy. It does have a rolling lockout and you can change your selections.And you can still trade mid round also

Tracy

What to do with Buddy??? Believe he will improve just a question of whether to hold whilst he works it out?

Derek

Swans delivery has been poor and must get better.

Derek

Delivery was a bit better. He had to go and get his own ball a lot. He is Gun! Bang bang

Michael

Hold after today I'd reckon…

Dogs

I was looking at a potential horror week on Monday, with Mitchell, enright , Barlow, Rohan, all under injury clouds. Decided to hold onto Mitchell and enright so it was out Barlow, swing Mitchell into the mids, so if both he and enright were both late outs I could at least pick my better rookies to score. In swallow to the back lines. 1 trade done.
I fell $6k short of being able to trade Rohan to zorko, and with Rohan being named I decided to get rid of Matty wright , and bring in zorko thanks to a lot of advice from the community, bank $200k in the warchest. Hopefully Rohan can pull his finger out , I only want 60's from him, how hard is that,lol

Michael

Pretty hard given he was the sub today lol.

Dogs

Yep, he's gone next week

Wattsieesq

Enright out for tonight.

Blicavs and Adams subs for cats v pies

WombatsFC

Rohan 23! Zorko not worth mentioning, Swallow tore him a new one

Dogs

Yep, regretting that one now, at least I got swallow and kept s.mitchell right…..and C on gaz . Finally getting a chance to watch a cats game , up until now I have been happy enough with caddy's scores , but geez I can see why everyone wants to jump off him. Wastes the ball a lot and a lot of clangers

Dogs

Oh, not to mention wright cracking the ton too. I knew whoever I traded out was gonna make me pay

Captain joc

So was swallow tagging zorko?

Dogs

Played on each other, wouldn't say tagged. Zorko nearly had his head ripped off early too and didn't play well at all after that

WombatsFC

Swallow copped a massive elbow to the jaw from Merrett that would've put smurph in a coma, but he didn't even leave the field!

WombatsFC

Zorko's score wouldn't be so bad if was tagging Swallow but they were going at it head to head. Swallow clearly won the contest.

Dools

Caddy puts himself in position to get the 50 50 ball I think he is just unlucky with the final disposal But at least he gives the Team a chance to reset behind the ball most of the time…. I really don't want to trade him out I think he will come good with more game time . now it's just a question of patients for me

WombatsFC

Hi Dools I also have Caddy and he is looking very much like an infant Burnman. Great value to the team but a points thief in SC I probably should have traded him for Zork instead of matty wright.
Who else is there up front?

Dools

Cheap would be young Marco Paparone BrisVagas Avg low 60 's
but I 'm leaning towards Breust wont score like that every week but I think he is a key player like Rioli and atm less then 500K

WombatsFC

Yeah I might hold off for a week to get a second look at Fasolo

Dools

Fasolo is a definite maybe but I have too many Rnd 8 byes so I 'looking else where my man

Dogs

I'm holding onto caddy, Rohan has to go tho, touch wood with no other trades needed next week I'll have up to $380k to spend on his replacement ( that includes rohans price)

Is it worth the risk going for one of the mid prices like a merret, May, hunter . Or going down to a rookie ? It's for F6 , so need someone with JS which I don't see in many of the rookies

Dools

May and hunter the pick from you r post Dogs.
May under scrutiny for high hit on Zorko wait on MRP result if you are feeling brave Go for it after Review Hunter will score well as long as the Doggies get up

Dogs

Cheers dools, will be waiting on news of enright too. If he's gonna miss again I'm dumping him, swing s,Mitchell back into the back line, and bring jibe into the mids , won't give me much to spend on Rohan then, so wait and see what happens.

This year 4 promos missing early games to injury or suspension, but I'm doing better than last year as I had 6 outs this time last year

Dools

Hey Dogs keeping diggin'in mate You are on the frontline in a trench and the bad guys are attacking in force, follow your gut and stick by a decision like your first starting 22

Dogs

Inspirational words dools, in the words of jock himself ' it warms my bloody heart' . Besides the wright/zorko trade I've only corrected rookies and Barlow so far, ridden the rocky suspension and back line injuries, lookin at an ok round now thanks to GAJ, rocky, treloar

Dools

Trelor what a game score in an un intresting footy game ! Mummy hit 160 WTF 10 posies , ya 60 hit outs and all that but 160, glad TF made me do it LOL

Samuel

Who should I get for Deledio? Selwood or Matt Thomas

retard

is that a joke?

JJM

I need two of these players on field L McD Langdon Georgiou.
Will McD back his score of 90+ last week.
Will Langdon play like he did in Round 1
Will Georgiou consistently score 60-70 points which I'll be happy to take, playing against GWS this week might score higher.

Jscoach

Hey community love the page,
Thoughts on Rohan down to Ambrose and Michie up to Matt Thomas
cheers

BCHawks

That is a great trade selection and one that would reward you greatly.

Dools

Agreed but beware Ambrose is also vest material for the season so bench cover only where as Rohan will become a regular later in the season

Mike

Rohan is already a regular….

….PAIN IN THE ARSE of every coach who has him!

Bizarrely though he hit his paltry BE so at least won’t lose value. Definite ‘get him out’ for Round 4.

Nuggety

Hi community, is there time to switch vice captaincy in between the suns and pies games?
Cheers

Bray

Should I start dunston or Ellis in my midfield.?

Daz

id say ellis as they are playing each other and dunstan is a vest worry

Michael

Not after last night what a gun!

Daz

kennedy harris or rohan on the field. rohan sub. is dunstan any chance of vesr. I need help fast

Daz

vest*

Linc

Do I play Dunstan vs West Coat or Langdon vs Geelong?

Fraser

What are the communities thoughts on Matty Wright, Jimmy Webster and Josh Caddy?
Haven't made any trades as of yet but want to know what the community thinks.
HOLD OR TRADE?

BCHawks

I would trade out Matt Wright for Steven May who has played brilliantly over the past 2 weeks.

Danners16

Shaun Higgins…

throttlefinger

(Opens envelope and takes out notecard) "What won't be in my team next week."

Shinboner

Macrae you gun! Can't say the same about Titchell.

Dools

Damn he is good how about Parkers effort mate

Shinboner

Not watching that game Dools, what happened to Titch? Delighted with a combined score of 263 by Libba and Macrae!

Dools

150 odd from the wookie McRea AWESOME . Mitchell withdrawn from the play at the 3/4 mark I think Honestly he was canting but was useful but compared to the team he was non existent So looking back on the Stats travelled at 89%% Efficiency but got 55 SC points . I think he must be on a go slow (injured) methinks..

Dools

My Bag mate 120 for 30 possies Damn I missed him bugger Mcrea

throttlefinger

Macare is a scrapper. Hmmmmmm.

Shinboner

How's your team travelling, mate?

throttlefinger

Parker's effort was massive. May need to swap him for Higgins. (yes, yes, yes, don't tell me)

Dools

Hey buddy One game from parker that's all I got so he may be trade bait next week from me

throttlefinger

He's done 85+ the last two weeks. Not bad comparatively.

Bit hasty?

Dools

not Hasty mate ZORKO was HASTY but no one was listening so When I say Parker is on the block after one great result I jump off every one else jumps on and still no one listens to Keyboard , Next G device and lill'ol'me

throttlefinger

Zorko wasn't hasty. Sound move given I had Wright whose value was going down. Zorko's going up. BE was sub 0. Even with his crap score, Zorko will average 100 for the year. All I ask from my F4.

Dools

Ya!!! 41 is an output I want from a keeper LOL and in the mean time Wright hits 100. This is not a game about B/E mate. This is a long term stratagem
On a more cheerful note Dunstan hits 141… Player. I'm just sad that I did not even put MacRea on me radar what a player …but at the same time I was impressed yet again by Swallow I thought he would fall over but he is a player as is Day So much to contemplate buddy much thinking time required Hahahahaha (Insert Carlton Draught) Geelong nearly killed me and somehow Pendles scores 115 and GAJ hit out 176 (C) 364 WOW! Tell me you had a C score mate

throttlefinger

Introducing Dools…King of the Past the Fact Insight. C'mon dude. Wright's form looked HORRID. 84/51. And give me a tad bit more credit than that. It was based on both BE and gut from watching him play. He didn't look good. Douglass was taking his pill. Zorko looked fantastic against a punishing Cats. Yes, there was a chance Zorko could go to dumper. But that can happen to almost every player not named Gazza, Selwood and Pendles.

Yeah. I like the play of Macrae. Still nice price. Like Swallow but not enough to fit him in. Think he'll dip in play once Bennell comes back. But yes, he's a player.

Don't have Gazza. Putting the C on Mummy vs the Dees. tomorrow is a new day…hope a MUCH better day. Wombats is kicking me down the street right now. Forecast: massive bombast!

Dools

Whoa there angry man I was not havin' a go Dude . I like the sound of King of the Past Fact Insight though but I recall warning all that Zorko was not the play to make this week but you and most others went for the neg B/E cash pump I'm just stating fact. Not having a go TF not at all I would have got rid of Wright if he where in my squad but not for Zorko that's all I'm sayin''
Sorry if this is offending you it is most defiantly not my intent

throttlefinger

You didn't. I'm having a bad morning. Ask Keyboard. It's called "projecting." In other words, "acting like an A**hole to someone who doesn't deserve it." Apologies Dools.

You did do that. And coming from you and KennyB (good or bad nickname for Keyboard?) I should've listened.

throttlefinger

Hanley's form is picking up. What's your and KennyB's thoughts on him? Houli has been KILLING ME.

throttlefinger

Apologies for the gruff tone, my friend. Bad morning so far. Wifey in a mood. Kids drank Nugent juice…wango tango, intensity in 10 cities for the last hour.

And Zorko's score didn't help waking up too either…

Dools

Hey mate I think Hanley scores better when he plays down the back in a losing side. When he plays Mid to fwd he usually gets around 85. but this is a good thing as they a re a poor team in comparison to Hawthorn or Freo now do you keep him in the hope that Leppa keeps him down back and inversely Zorko plays (Scores) better with Rich and Hanley up front So Rich is gone for the year . Hanley must play in def and Zorko needs to be friends with Rockcliff, but Rockey does not need him to play Zorko will need Rocky to play is this making sense mate

throttlefinger

It does, my man. Seems like too many "ifs" and "musts" to have both Zorko and Hanley on my team. Just trying to figure out who to bring in. Not liking Houli's form. Broke a ton last week but got 74 this week and 68 his first game. Best to keep your prems until injury I know.

Lots of thinking to be done after this round. Higgins on the chopping block. Webster did good in his return from the groiner.

Charge up Keyboard and make sure he gets a good night's rest Sunday…will have many questions for him next week.

Dools

Me thinks Houli for Grimms mate Future King Prediction LOL

throttlefinger

HAHAHA. Well done, my forgiving friend.

I already have Dunn. Doing well. Having both would inspire SC shittestorm. Or not? What's keyboard say about adding Grimes with Dunn?

Dools

When he plays the midfield opens . have you noticed that the Cats let him go… Why they see his play because that's what they want They understand what he is attempting his team does not, crack the middle …you win the game ..Oh and please delete your last post only 500,000 million people now are on what was next weeks trade LOL

Dools

Like it TF but you need to delete you 2nd last post man only 1 billion people in China and they are all whispering mate LOL.

Dools

Nice background with Phil Lynett and Thin Lizzy Respect!!

throttlefinger

Huge Lizzy fan. You?

Dools

I was a roady back in the day for U2 that's all we played on the road and abba I kid you not

throttlefinger

NO WAY!!! Been listening to Chinatown this week. Very underrated Lizzy album. Production is crappy but songs are amazing.

Was in a touring band for many years. Live and Dangerous and Aerosmith's Live Bootleg were the go-to albums post show when we had an all-night drive to the next town. Just balls out great band.

Dools

Small world mate very small world. BOYs are BAck in Town AWESOME, and ABBA's Supertrooper for the ladies LOL

throttlefinger

Parker will be a keeper. Won't be tagged and tackling machine. Non-stop motor. Sell at your peril, my man.

Captain joc

Hey dools you got any forwards under 465k worth bringing in for caddy

Dogs

So far this round is showing the dangers of trading out your premiums/ high mid prices too early, cotchin, Libba, franklin , Pav, Mitchell all showin why they made original teams, and all in the mix of players traded out. I'm even lookin at m,wright now sitting on 93 before the game has finished thinking , I'd take that for his price, but I pulled the trigger and got rid of him

Derek

Beware the bandwagons. This week we had the Zorko, Swallow, Thomas and Tyson bandwagons all getting going. They can promise you quick cash, but usually they are short lived until the next one

Shinboner

Not sure why trading out Libba was even an option. Even when he scored in the 70s, he had 20+ disposals under a heavy tag. Then the next week he hit 110+.

Dogs

I jumped on the zorko wagon, trading out wright…..if I was home before the start of the swans game tho I would have traded Rohan when he was named sub. Didn't expect zorko to hit the same numbers , but 85-100 would have been nice

Derek

Swallow actually did ok. I went Guthrie to Hanley instead of swallow. Just don’t think he will end up in top 10 defenders this year

Derek

Not sure why I had Guthrie

Shinboner

Had Hanley, traded in Swallow for Pittard. Paid dividends, that's for sure.

Hez

Who is everyone playing on field? Dunstan against WCE or Langdon against Geelong?

Michael

Relevant HT FS2014 scores:
GAJ 86,
KK 41,
Swallow 38,
May 25,
Cameron 9,
Redden 63,
Rocky 61,
Hanley 59,
Luey 37,
Aish 27,
Zorko 25 (traded him in this week %$*&##!!!),
Taylor 21

Osh

Yay traded out Buddy fro Zorko this week working out well so far…

WombatsFC

Hahaha I think all of us who jumped on Zorko are kicking ourselves. Swallow shut him down and still scored 100+ lucky for me I also jumped on the Swallow bandwagon

Marcus J

Ablett is King

that is all

Josh

Which 2 from 3 as starters – McDonald, Webster and Langdon .?

Gazza

Which player should score the most points, in order, out of langdon, l.mcdonald, ellis or dunstan?

Derek

Ellis, macca, Dunstan, langdon

WombatsFC

Dunstan, Ellis, Langdon McDonald

Wattsieesq

Captain on GAJ. You bewty

Michael

Hate to burst your bubble but so will 90% of Supercoachers…

Wattsieesq

You're not bursting my bubble. It's great for other punters. It doesn't take away that I'm stoked I have Gaz with the C when he pumps out 180 odd.

Captain joc

I wouldn’t say 90% loads of people are going with mummy, pendles n sell wood

Wattsieesq

GAJ and Libba with BE of 153. Monster numbers to beat the BE.

piewood

1519/ 13 – thanks Captain Gazza

go Pies!
