PODCAST: The prices they are a changin

Published by Jock on

Supercoach 2014 preseason podcast

It’s price change time community

As just like the player price changes that begin this week – we too must undergo a very important change in trading mindset.

With any luck you have corrected  some of your team selection problems, not created any other additional problems, and this is probably the last week where you might be able to grab some value before your trade in targets get to pricey.

Join us as we unpack the fantasy footy issues of the week and tear them to shreds.

This week the wheat gets sorted from the chaff.

First Comment!

Accidentally forget to put the E on sandi during cap loophole still got 2232.

EvilUmpire

Love the Podcast look forward to it each and every week. Also excited about the Thursday Podcasts. Thinking about getting rid of Zorko or do I hold?

@johnson_tragic

Hold. I think that will be the worst of Zorko. He went at 40% and kicked two behinds which you wouldn't think would happen to often…

dean

Not sure, I ended up getting Thomas and Tyson over Zorko leaving me $450k in the bank, assuming zorko was a sure fire thing to get this week, now i guess i have options.

wes

are there better options instead of zorko? who else can we get for the price?

Super_Freak

He'll bounce back. As pfft said above, Zorko got poleaxed by May late in the first quarter. At that stage he had about 40-45 SC points up and was on track for another big one.

@johnson_tragic

What to do with bloody ambrose???

Cozza

He is on the bubble, so I'm going to be waiting a week or two. Hopefully he is named this week, but if not may need to consider getting another rookie in until Ambrose named again.

rosco_peco

Ambrose is likely to miss a few… http://www.afl.com.au/news/2014-04-06/dons-belt-h

InsideInfo

Ambrose has done a quad muscle (dons were and are trying to keep it under wraps, he wasn't going to play all week) its projected he's out for 2-4 weeks

Shinboner

Great podcast, boys! This round has been a lesson in sticking to your guns – many traded out Buddy, Cotchin, Mitchell, Libba and the likes.

Managed to avoid the carnage this week, scoring 2445 without Enright (Georgiou grr…). Cunnington and Duncan have been pleasant surprises.

Michael

Great score Shinboner that should be right up there this week.

Shinboner

Cheers, Michael. Here's hoping! Especially after a disastrous second round.

Kev

You're considering a trade after scores of 121 and 161 in the first 3 weeks? Madness

WombatsFC

THUMPER!

throttlefinger

And so KK has been anointed. Welcome to SC relevancy THUMPER!

Langford to Thumper…that sounds kinda nice.

Dale

Did u hear correctly as Kola-Jizz-knee?

Sam

Guys trade Rohan to fasolo in a week

wes

fasolo on my early watch list… considering rohans scores first 3 weeks, seriously considering that

Harry

Happy with 2439, particularly as zorko trade in didn't work this week. I still believe long term it will be sound, particularly with Rich going down.

My weakness is the fwd line with Caddy F4, Higgins F5, and Taylor F6. But may have to bide my time to accumulate cash- don't want to sell good scoring rookies too early.

Who are people's end game fwds? I have Zorko, Danger and Martin and would like to add Parker, Wingard and Rioli ultimately. Who else are people banking on?

Shinboner

I think I've already got four sealed: Danger, Chappy, Titchell and Roughead. Might finish it off with a Dusty or Westhoff. Perhaps Boomer.

throttlefinger

Have Danger, Dusty, Roughy, Zorko (tentatively). Will get Wingard, he will pick up.

From there it will be wait and see. Then again, you could say that about all of the future picks.

WombatsFC

I've got Boomer,Dusty,Zorko,Titch. I'll probably turn Titch into Danger after next week think I need roughead as well but dunno for F6

Wino

Have Danger, Martin, Parker, Breust, Zorko (Higgins currently F6).

Toss-up for the last possie – Pav, Rioli, Boomer. As per Shinboner and TF I like Westoff/Wingard too.

Lack of quality forward rookies makes the early upgrading of the forward line a bit of a priority this season. Too many dud scores from the F6 position.

Captain joc

I have danger,dusty,titch and wingard looking to get one of rioli, chapman or pav

BeagzBoyz

I've got Reiwoldt, Roughy, The Hoff, Parker and danger. Will look to upgrade Impey to dusty before the bye

Cam

I’ve got 5 of my fwds locked in (or as good as) already; Danger, Dusty, Zorko, Mitchell and Dahlhouse. Caddy is riding at F6 for the time being but at the moment I have my eye on Breust as his replacement when the time comes.

Was feeling pretty good about them all a week ago and then they all go and pull sub-par performances…

Sarah

It's funny how they all do it at the same time!!

Dale

I have the same Fwds except I have Roughead instead if Zorko. Do you think Mitchell and Dahlhouse will come good through the year? They are expensive 80s at present.

taylorwoof

G'day Harry!

I upgraded Caddy to Zorko last week.

Currently have: Dangerfield, Martin, Zorko, Buddy, Higgins, Taylor/Impey

Like yourself, i'm eagerly wanting to upgrade F6…..though biding time may be the best option.

Alex Fasolo scored 70 odd on the weekend, get another look at him in Round 4…..could bring him into the team if he can produce another 70+. Much more reliable scorer than your Taylors & Impeys etc at F6.

I have a 3 man weave ruck (Hmac, Sandi, Hickey) i can go Hickey>Currie and Higgins>Cyril. But beginning to second guess that, as Higgins plays against GWS this weekend.

Harry

Yeah patience is the key I think. I've loaded up in midfield and it's a winner at this stage but at the expense of a mediocre forward line. I too have my eye on Fasolo but will wait another week and see if he's worth it. Gut feel is he'll be a better option than Taylor/Rohan as my F6.

I have little confidence in Caddy but think I just need to stick with him until the byes and hope he can average 80 (although I may be delusional!!!)

Wingard going down may be a blessing as hopefully he's eased back and can pick him up post byes.

Thanks for thoughts

Roger

Terrible round community.
1: Traded Mitchell out for Swallow instead of Enright,
2: Fyfe and Deledio both out for me, had to put Matt Crouch on.
3: Hampson out, had to use a trade to get a EMG in Currie who burned big time.
4: Rohan the sub, terrible score.
5: Was leading on the ladder averaging 2296, got 2086 which was not bad considering how many i had out yet the guy who beat me was averaging 2001, scores a 2294. But like Jock said, You pick yourself up from these tough times and you get stronger but just some advice would be nice guys.
Def: Swallow, Hanley, Enright, Terlich, Langdon, Mcdonald (Gergiou, Tippet)
Mid: Ablett, Selwood, Rockliff, Deledio, Fyfe, Beams, Polec, Dunstan (Ellis, M. Croch)
Rk : Sandilands, Hampson ( Currie, King)
Fwd : Martin, Zorko, Mitchell, Caddy, Higgins, Rohan (Impey, Kennedy Harris)
Got 136k in the bank. Any advice would be wonderful.

Michael

dont trade deledio or fyfe

brooke

Upgrade caddy or Higgins

JBomb

+1 Higgins, Caddy will only get better from here

Billy

if michie not named, josh kelly looks good, or wait a week for crouch?? ambrose out for a couple of weeks hurts but luckily started with him and didn't trade him in

Darcy

Wright. I got stuck with him and he tonned up on the weekend. Is he worth keeping now with thompsons injury?

Donut King

Definitely hold this round

Wino

My team "The Filth" – R3 score of 2495 – second highest score in the community for the round and 34th in the community in overall points.
Ranked 1273 in the comp.
If only May hadn't clobbered Zorko….

Shinboner

Great score, mate!

Wino

Cheers.
Probably go from chocolates to boiled lollies next week…
Enjoy it while I can.

GarglesnarfFC

Very nice score Wino, you too Shinboner. A much better week than last week!

Bob McBob

Thoughts on Jackson Merrett, or just a one off score?

Shinboner

Spewing that I didn't have the guts to keep him in my side. His slow pre-season put me off holding him into the season. Joined the Caddy bandwagon instead. He'll keep a nice 85+ average up this season, methinks.

Bob McBob

Considering trading Rohan to him him, good move? Or prioritise to remove pittard?

Shinboner

Removing Pittard should be at the top of your wishlist bar none. I managed to offload him last week for Swallow after panic-trading him in pre-Round 1 when Broadbent was named as the sub.

Steve

Hey community, is being around 900 points off the sc leader (ranked number 1 overall) too far to bridge, even after round 3?

Kev

I wouldn't think so, Steve. Long way to go yet, you could easily make that up. Leaders won't emerge until after the inevitable bye round carnage

Fraser

Pleasure for my question to be heard on the podcast! Cheers guys.

Donut King

Hey there community!
Still have the 30 trades left and after a score of 2342 and moving into the top 2% things are looking good.
Just wondering if I could get some community input on my side?
Defence: Mitchell, McVeigh, Swallow, Suckling, Webster, McDonald, Langdon and Georgiou
Midfield: Ablett, Pendlebury, Liberatore, Beams ,Dunstan, Polec, Aish, Ellis, M Crouch and L Taylor
Rucks: Sandilands, Lobbe, Currie and Derrickx
Forwards: Dangerfield, Martin, Franklin, Mitchell, Wright, Caddy, Rohan and Kennedy-Harris
Would love some opinions from the community on trading and all the rest of it.
Cheers

GarglesnarfFC

Great effort! To be honest you don't need to do much. Maybe Rohan down to Ambrose if named, and Caddy should be watched with a view to trading up as soon as possible.

Donut King

Cheers for the feedback mate.
Good luck for the rest of the year!

Gobbledocs Pride

Super side mate, not much wrong there!! maybe only Webster and Rohan your early mistakes but that team you have is one very very good start you should be right up there for the time being I reckon! Good luck mate doing a lot better then me I'm avg 2167 per week but made massive mistake this last round and traded Franklin out for Zorko and moved Dunstan to my bench probably cost me around 150-200pts less this round. Cheers Gobbledocs Pride

William

I can go from Caddy to Parker. Leaves nothing in the bank and I still reckon Caddy could make a bit. Would love some help.

Adam

away from home community so I'll need some help on my team
Anyone here injured?should I trade?is a full squad playing?
Hanley,bartel,birchall,Langdon,mcdonald,geargiio(Cameron,laidler)
Albert,Pendleton,beams,dal santo,Goddard,Tyson,polecat,dunstan(fife,Taylor)
Sandi,lobbe(currie,nank)
Zorko,Martin,danger,impey,rohan,kharris(McCarthy,ambrose)

Thanks in advance 🙂

GarglesnarfFC

Rohan and Kennedy Harris are priorities to move out as they both went DOWN! Quite a feat for rookies.

Shinboner

Hmm, I'm going to have to say keep JKH. The current Melbourne game plan obviously is not working and it's only a matter of time before they take the vest off JKH and stick it on a Blease-type. Or they could drop him altogether, making our decisions much easier.

Michael

Here's the thing – I have JKH but only $50K in warchest.
Should I hold or trade to Impey? Already have Taylor & Ambrose.

Derek

I was looking through your team with envy, until I got to the forwards. Serious work needed in FWD. How much cash do you have?

canman1306

May be a sideways but thoughts on trading Josh Caddy For Jackson Merrett Look like he can Average 85+ till the byes
He will probably Get up to around 450K if he is Lucky and he can be a great stepping stone to a premo Foward

Kev

I'm thinking of this move as well, canman. Looking at Caddy's DE% and it's shocking. This week caddy's break-even is more than his average (71 be, ave 66) whereas Merrett's be is -9.

I think as long as you haven't gone through many trades at this point, a sideways move is a safe bet

Callum

Great podcast boys! Thinking of going JKH to Fasolo, that’s the only problem I have in my team at the moment and maybe dale Thomas and michie are also problems but I think I will get Matt crouch for michie next round and then dale Thomas, probably an upgrade to a cheap premo or should I move him on this round? If I was to, who would I get?

Derek

Carlton play MELB. Keep Daisy.

sputnik

Keep daisy for sure. carlron have played all their games with 10-11 days inbetween with no regular routine, and they have played non-football night of only sunday nights and thursday night. their body clocks are out of whack so should start to improve. plus daisy missed 3 easy goals game 1 (30 pts) got 92 game 2 and got 82 last night in a team that was totally destroyed, He will get his averages up to 100 in the next few and can still smash out 120's+ once he gets the feel going again.

OzSonic

Got 2424. Stuck with Libba and Franklin and that paid off, brought in Wines and Jaensch for Dixon and Webster which also paid off in points and $$$.

Gotta decision to make on NicNat, I chose Wines/Jaensch over Mumford who I've missed the boat on. Although wasn't comfortable with Sandi/Mumford starting ruck combination. Injury free so I'll ride my cows until they're ready to send to market.

Danners16

Hey guys nice week for me 2353 just need some thoughts on my team
Def-S.Mitchell, P.Hanley, D.Swallow, N.Malceski, L.McDonald, T.Langdon (J.Laidler, A.Georigou)
Mid-G.Ablett, D.Beams, L.Shuey, M.Murphy, D.Tyson, L.Dunstan, J.Polec, X.Ellis (V.Michie, H.Cunningham)
Ruck-S.Jacobs, A.Sandilands (T.Derickx, F.Thurlow)
For-P.Dangerfield, D.Martin, N.Riewoldt, D.Zorko, L.Parker, J.Caddy (J.Impey, L.Taylor)
$67500 in the bank
Was thinking Malceski to Jaensch, and Caddy to a premium forward to get Jaenchs price rise and he looks like a premium with his scoring output.
Thoughts?

GarglesnarfFC

Gut says Malceski to Jaensch is a wasted trade, swapping like for like, so no to that one. Caddy up to Harvey if you can afford him, or maybe Bruest if not, sounds like a plan.

Kev

I agree, I'd more comfortable relying on 'Eski at this point. Jaensch has never been a premium fantasy scorer

Derek

I cant see to much that you need to do. Fatten up your cash cows for a few more weeks, hope that Murphy can get a few premium scores.

you have missed Jaensch, forget about him. You might look at Thumper as another Cash Cow. Otherwise HOLD

GarglesnarfFC

Dont know about that Derek, his breakeven (-7) is still better than most (KK is -3 for example)and given the Crows are yet to appear on the winning side of the Supercoach points ledger, he has still has potential for upside and I can’t see him losing his role in the squad anytime soon.

Hanely is the safer option as a premium defender, but at nearly $200k more it’s hard not to think of Jaensch as a pretty solid pick, even with that round 8 bye.

Gazza

Traded in Ambrose last week and it looks as though he'll be out for a bit according to Bombers PC. Need to get rid of McDonough and seriously considering a side trade of Tommy Mitchell > Breust. Then there is Clurey wasting space on my backline bench.
Community do I stick fat with Mitchell and do the simple Clurey > Laidler and McDonough > Taylor trades then rid it all the way to the bye rounds?
Full team
Def – Mitchell, Hibberd, Simpson, Mcdonald, Langdon, Georgiou, Langford, Clurey
Mids – Pendles, Watson, Libba, Beams, Shiels, Polec, Dunstan, Ellis, Cunningham, Fyfe
Rucks – Sandi, McIntosh, Currie, King
Fwds – Martin, Rough, Danger, Mitchell, Wright, Ambrose, JKH, Mcdonough
Cheers

GarglesnarfFC

Yes, do those two corrective trades. Do not swap Breust for Mitchell, Swans are coming good and his scores will go up from here.

GarglesnarfFC

Hurn and Michie are my two on the chopping block this week., although Hurn is the only really pressing trade, as I cant have 470k sitting on the pine.

1. Hurn to Hanley and hold Michie (can pick up Crouch next week)

2. Hurn to Jaensch and Michie to Kelly

3. Hurn to Thumper and Caddy to Harvey

Despite a huge desire to get Kelly, I am leaning towards option 1 as it keeps my structure intact, while option 2 still leaves me with a nagging doubt about Jaenschs ability to maintain his form.

Derek

option 1

MightyDonsFC

I'd go with 2

Plum

Tom Mitchell.. Should i hold community?

And is it time to get the little master Gaj in? For toby greene ?

GarglesnarfFC

Yes & Yes, if you have the cash to convert Greene to Gaz DO IT!!!

sputnik

Hey Carlton will lift their game soon I hope.

The AFl has given them a ridiculous roster that is equivalent to working night shift or rotating rosters and any one who works rotating rosters knows how much it screws with your whole life pattern- unless you choose to do it and have done it for yours.

CARLTON RND 1 – SUNDAY NIGHT

11 days later ROUND 2 THURSDAY NIGHT

10 days later ROUND 3 SUNDAY NIGHT

No other team has played these "non football" nights twice, let alone 3 weeks in a row for Carlton. You cant train in the usual 6-7 day pattern because you have an extra 3 days off, and you have to break sleeping patterns to play NIGHT games on days when NIGHT games arent supposed to be played. And alot of these "strange day night games' have nothing to do with Football skills but sleeping patterns and alot of them will be uninteresting and ones sided.

Plus I fell asleep at half time last night anyway like most I would suspect. Pity footbal is now dragging on til 11pm Sunday night.

GarglesnarfFC

Fair point Sputnik, they have had a very weird draw, not friendly to players or fans.

cyril

Excuses, excuses. They are rubbish no matter when they play

WombatsFC

Spot on Sputnik the AFL seems to choose Carlton as their crash test dummy ever since Ian Collins joined the AFL after he signed away Carltons home ground to support the AFL's failing Telstra dome; why they let him back into the club I'll never know.

However I don't think that the game roster is Carltons problem. They were looking very dangerous and moving forward until they got 'yesterdays one-trick-pony' to coach them. Since then they have started to slide and will probably get even worse until they find a coach who's plan for attack doesn't involve moving the ball back to full back unless your within the fwd 50.

JackoFC

Jock, i've still got bloody luenburger in my side mate! I thought he would come good but he still hasn't cracked 85!!! Now with West holding a spot, I want him out – options are:

1. slight upgrade to big boy mcevoy
2. go all out for the likes of mummy, goldy or minson (reckon i've missed mummy)
3. nic nat, sauce jacobs, hickey etc.
+ anyone else!!

p.s obviously i have sandi as 2nd ruck

cheers for the help community!

Derek

as Higgo said, hold for now, wait for NicNat to fall in value and trade

Beady Eye

Held off on ditching Caddy at the last minute and was rewarded with a 53. Out you go. In comes Hanley now that he's survived Brisbane's horrible fixtures while maintaining a healthy average.

The other trade I'm tossing around is Landford to Kelly, swinging Swallow from mids to defence. Like what I've seen of the Kelly kid, especially the fact he's scored at a very healthy rate despite not yet cracking 20 touches. You would think that as he gets more of it, the scores should rise.

Any thoughts/suggestions from the community?

JX20

I've had Jack Martin rusting on the bench waiting for Josh Kelly to get on the bubble. The kid is silk.

Jscoach

Hey community love the page,
I scored well this week but have a few problems with some of my premiums. I'm looking to offload Michael Walters who seems to be injured. He is priced at 436k. I can trade under priced premiums in Petrie or Cloke or some cheap options such as Merrett and May.
Any advice would be much appreciated

GarglesnarfFC

Cloke and Petrie are circling the SC drain this week, and will continue to drop. I do not consider either to be a valid target for this week, and possibly not until the byes.

Prefer Merrett to May, but Harvey is the premium fwd ATM. Non KPP and roaming all over the forward half racking up possies, kicking goals and winning games.

If you want a premo fwd, he’s it (just ignore the walking frame)

Bray

Hey guys just wanting your thoughts on a a trade option. My foward line has, Zorko, Danger, Dusty, Wright, Caddy, JKH, Impey, and Taylor. I was thinking of trading caddy up to Luke Parker, thoughts.?
Thanks for the help in advance.

Josh

Who is the best Premium forward?

GarglesnarfFC

Harvey, non KPP and still winning games off his boot whilst racking up plenty of effective possessions. Gun.

WombatsFC

Yep Boomers 56 point final quarter got me over the line in my league after the Burn Twins (Titchell & Caddy) set fire to my hopes of a decent score

canman1306

Dangerfield Will be the best premium forward this season

WombatsFC

Peter Hudson

David

I brought in Mackie and Birchall this week. Fingers crossed they can both hold a 90+ avg this year.

I replaced Hodge and Hurn for these 2.

Was skeptical of Hodge this year but still thought he would be a 100+ defender alas he proved me right in the fact that he is too unreliable now days (injury/niggles) hold him back from his true potential.
Hurn i hate you! how and why do you do this every year! never again.

Derek

Hurn was a good risk because of the draw WCE had. It was good to get him out.

Michael

One word – Hurnman!!!

Jonty

Is it too risky to have both selwood and Stevie J in the midfield, or would it be more wise to bring in pendles or jobe over selwood. I can’t beleive I traded out Joel just before round 1

lukescoach

I have been patient with Goldstein to date but is it time to pull the plug and get Mumford in?

Josh

Nah I don't reckon. What's the point of burning a trade for a guy that will probably average the same as Goldstein for the rest of the year. Even if he is slightly injured, he will ruck in front of currie.

Marcus J

Got some solid advice off here last week about holding onto roughie and whoever that was
thankyou!

Those people that have daisy are you holding or folding?

Josh

Holding

Derek

Calton play Melb this week. Daisy is good against the weak teams. HOLD

Derek

What Falling Premiums do people have on their Watchlist?

Griffin projected to fall $110k in next 2 weeks.
Goldy already dropped $46 and projected another $24k this week
Swan dropped $68 and projected another $50k in two weeks (could be as low as $510k)
NicNat dropped $40k and projected another $25k in 2 weeks (could be around $455k)
Petrie fell $98k and projected another $93k in 2 weeks (could be around $360k)
Mayne fallen $60k and projected another $52k (could be $388k)
Cloke dropped $78k and projected another $52k (could be $383k)
Adams dropped $50k and projected another $55k (could be $305k)

Kristofor

That Mayne has been horrible!!

Sarah

I've got my eye on Griffin.

sputnik

price fall projections are based on current everages so you would suspect that griffen, goldy, nic nat and adams wont drop anywhere near as much as mentioned. Goldy has a BE of 163 and forecasted to drop only 50K in the next 2 but he could easily smash out 130 this week and only drop 10K. swan is done i reckon and no longer fantasy relevant. buck's is just a striaght flog and almost trying to intentionally annoy swan by playing him up front. Danger could drop to 510K in 3 weeks but once again only based on current avge of 93 which he could easily smash. if griff keeps up his avge of 56 he will drop 210K in the next 3 and be 410K

Derek

i was taking the numbers from SC Gold. the values are based on their projections (consideration given to opponent, ground etc) not just their current average.

OzSonic

I wouldn't touch Griff. He's playing injured, clearly, barely had a pre-season on top of that. Mid way point is when he'll peak IMO.

WombatsFC

I reckon that NicNat is the only one from the list of has-beens you presented although Griff could come up.

THE SALTSHAKER

Swans injured you can tell, way he is carrying himself, not bending for the footy and looks disinterested

Dion

Great Podcast !
Any news on why T Mitchell was subbed out?
Also, any danger of stopping all the drug references crouching? Not funny and brings the quality of the podcast down.

Dale

Disagree, crouching one is one of the truly great Aussie comedians. You can’t cage the tiger.

Sarah

Ok, I want to hold this week. Scored 2319. But I've had enough of Caddy.
So what I'm thinking is:

Caddy to Bruest
Michie to Kelly.

Thoughts?

Josh

Keep Caddy as he is still only cheap and will have good games in the near future…Michie to Kelly sounds good though!

Cozza

Caddy to Breust is not a bad option, although I would think it unlikely Breust will get to premo status despite his scores to date. I expect you will probably be wanting to upgrade Bruest in the future, so you are potentially burning a trade here by using him as a stepping stone. Both Caddy and Bruest have a BE of 59 this week, but Caddy looks to be close to his ceiling unless his scoring improves. Bruest has potential to generate you more cash to get that final premo upgrade and will likely score better than Caddy in the meantime.

Guess it depends on whether you want to burn a trade on a minor upgrade.

Cozza

That said, if he keeps going with his current scoring he will be a definite keeper! The forward premos have been difficult to nail down this year, so he keeps this up he will be in everyones teams soon. I'm just not sure he will/can keep it up, particularly with the full Hawks squad playing.

I guess time will tell!

vinnymac

In FWD I have Danger, Dustin Martin, Pav, Zorko and Rohan on field, Kennedy Harris and McDonough as emg.
In DEF I have Mitchell, Hanley, Swallow, McDonald, Langdon, Webster, Georgiou, Langford.
Should I:
1) Trade Rohan OUT Chapman/Riolo IN…..McDonough OUT, L.Taylor IN
2) Leave the FWD line and upgrade one of Webster, Gerogiou, Langford

$307,400 in the kitty

Sarah

Leave defence alone. Go for option 1. You could also look at Breust instead of Chappy or Rioli, but that really just comes down to a personal preference as they're all playing really well.

GarglesnarfFC

Actually there might be a problem in defence. None of Webster, Langford or Georgiou are guaranteed starts next week, and same with JKH, Rohan and McDonough.

Perhaps Rohan/McDonough to J Merrett which gets a rookie off the park,and/or Webster to KK (not sold on KK yet, but cant see an alternative)

Josh

Jason Winderlich could be a very interesting POD…Gonna hold matthew wright this week as he still has a gettable BE especially against the saints. If Winderlich has another solid game and his body holds up then I think I may make a straight swap as they will be virtually the same price. I know that Higgo wouldn't like this but I believe in an Essendon side that is firing that Winderlich could end up being a premo lock if his body is up to it.

Rescued Pieman

A special thanks to Crouching & Jock for the heroic rescue last night. And Higgo in the getaway car. Ken Bruce was doing my head in. Shopping for a new TV today.

zimmerbd

"I've got a sword, I'll bring the sword around if you want".

Classic Wayno.

sputnik

seems heaps of people are going to sideways trade against the cardinal rule. the way I see it there is 20 trades for $ and 10 trades for upgrades. only sideways for injuries

max von muffman

Thoughts? I'm thinking to downgrade McVeigh for Laidler and then Caddy up to Ablett….

Hanley, Mc Veigh, Mitchell, Suckling, Langdon, McDonald, Webster, Georgiou
Rockliff, Cotchin, Beams, Dunstan, Shiels, D Thomas, Polec, Ellis, Caddy
Sandi, Pyke, Currie, Derrickx
Dangerfield, Zorko, Martin, Roughead, Mitchell, Rohan, Ambrose, McCarthy

GarglesnarfFC

What was your plan to get Ablett in? Stick with it, as he only four more games before the round 8 bye.

IMO, you need a decent midfield cow, how about Rohan out, Caddy forward and Kelly in? Fwd rookies are awful this year, and Kelly looks the goods to make you between $150-$200k over the next few weeks, allowing you to bring in Ablett after his bye.

Beard

Hey lads,

Thanks for the help in the early stages.

My line up just scored 2,510 finished 37th in the rank and am currently 27t overall.

I'm fairly happy with everything but Forwards.

I am not touching Dusty, Danger. Mitchell can have another crack before he becomes a concern especially if he was subbed off.

M Wright stepped up this week and he was as good as gone, Hunter has served his purpose and might be time to go. Caddy is someone I think may go this week. I have 101k in the bank so might just make a upgrade of Caddy or Hunter.

I'm leaning towards Caddy, do you guys think Parker, Rioli or Zorko?

Cheers

Sarah

I like Breust too but out of those three I'd probably be leaning towards Zorko. He got hit hard last week, possibly effected his scoring for the remainder of the game. But his early season form is still outstanding.
Good luck.

Beard

Actually can afford Bruest or Chapman too.

So can I just get a few opinions here boys, Bruest, Chapman, Rioli, Zorko or Parker.

I think I'd go Zorko if he didn't get 46 but that's a big concern for me even if hurt, cause last year he burnt me.

Bruest and Chapman have been killing it though both can't keeping 3-4 goals a game I'd imagine.

Rioli is yet to explode and has still got 100 odd a game…

Parker is the least of my interests though he's worth a mention.

Thoughts guys?

Parker 500+ possies last year, will improve on that

Dale

I like Cyril, if he can maintain consistency.

GeneralSoreness

I would go Zorko out of those options.

Although perhaps a good week to sit tight. Caddy not going down or up much, Zorko has BE of 77. It wouldnt cost very much to see how Zorko goes this week.

Worried about Zorko, he takes his first decent hit and packs up shop for the day and hides. Way too soft for a premium keeper.
ALL the other clubs will have noticed that he makes Smurph look like Ironman and they'll crunch the little marshmallow at every opportunity, like they do on Smurph.
Zorks is done and dusted as far as SC relevancy is concerned

Team was just about destroyed this week with the late outs McEvoy, Enright & Ambrose, while I still held Hodge on my bench. Combine that with some shocking scores from rookies, but i still managed to squeeze out 2160 (shout out to captain GAJ) and a league win.

Considering just the one trade this week: Daisy Thomas >> Jackson Macrae.
Daisy isn't going too badly, but not too well either, and I genuinely believe that Macrae can average 100+ after seeing some of his performances.

What are the community's thoughts?

Bob McBob

Macrae is a good choice. He also has a BE of 9 with a projected price rise of 35k

Derek

Daisey playing MELB

dean

Dont fall into the trap of sideways trades, Macrae Looking good, but what happens when he scores sub 80 for a few weeks in a row, you will have to trade him out anyway, costing two trades for that one position, Thomas not looking that bad, he will have games where he gets a ton every now and then.

Michael

Daisy's a lock for the season unless injury strikes.

THE SALTSHAKER

If you didnt get him from start you should let him go now, gotta get right rookies and use trades on them. I looked at same trade. Depends how many trades youve used, if 1 or less you could do it, also last week save you 20k now costs you 30k for not much pts each week but if you happy with rookies then why not?

Dale

Do you think Enright will play? Do we need to trade him?

Gary rohan the spud

So community i have 308k in the bank and my def and mid are fine so im thinking of offloading gary rohan and josh caddy for buddy and jackson merrett thoughts?
Def: Hanley, S Mitchell, Swallow, Enright, McVeigh, Langdon, (Lanford, Georgiu)
Mid: Ablett, Beams, Murphy, JPK , Tyson, Polec, Ellis, Dunstan, (Michie, L McDonald)
Ruck: Mcintosh and Sandi ( Currie, King)
Fwd: Martin, Danger, Zorko, caddy, higgins, impey (rohan, JKH)

So if i bring in franklin and merrett my worst on field fwd would be higgins.

However another option is gary rohan and alexis georgiu out for merrett and a 300-400k defender thoughts?

MightyDonsFC

Caddy to Wingard/Gray/Merrett and wait and see with enright

Dogs

Hi community, would love any thoughts / critisicm on my team

Mcveigh, enright, swallow, suckling, Langdon ,McDonald, georgiou, Langford
Ablett,rockliff, s,Mitchell, beams, treloar,polec,Tyson,dunstan,Ellis, Cunningham
Sandi, pyke, currie, king
Danger, wingard,t.mitchell,zorko, caddy, Rohan, mcdonut, JKH

I think my main concern has to be getting Rohan off the ground, got 200k at the moment so my current thoughts are to trade mcdonut to merret( I had my eye on him before this weekends score) , and put Rohan on the bench. Thoughts on merret?

I want to try and stick to the 1 trade this week as I jumped on the zorko wagon last week (hangs head) and had to move out Barlow for injury, so trying to save some trades for the bye rounds

Cheers guys …….an girls

blake

Thanks everyone
