Flesh for Fantasy – Round 11

Published by Jock on

flesh-for-fantasy-150x150G’day community,

IT’S OVER!! BYE PERIOD IS NO MORE!! Thank the lord. I don’t know about you guys, but it was really starting get on this own man’s nerves.

However, we are now over the hill and looking to green pastures. Many would have spent their kitty upgrading over the bye period, so it is all about trying to find value for you buck.

Let’s look to see where this week’s value lies.


Kade Simpson (CARL) DEF – $567,500 SC

  • Next 5 Games: BRIS (A), GEE (A), HAW (H), GWS (A), COLL (A)
  • Recent Scores: 128, 104, 98, 109, 145, 144
  • Breakeven: 49

If you’re in need of a defensive premium, Kade Simpson is definitely worth considering. His form of late has come at a time where Carlton has managed to string some games on the trot now. Kade’s recent run of games has been exception – collecting 37 touches and 11 marks against Adelaide, and 36 touches and 10 marks against St Kilda. Sides at the moment are letting him do as he pleases on the wings, playing that outside role that has made him so consistent over the years. Has Brisbane this week, followed by a mini tough run so quality opposition may not afford him the freedom Adelaide and St Kilda did. His form has been so good over two months it is hard to ignore if you’ve got the cash.

Ryan Griffen (WBD) MID – $517,000 SC

  • Next 5 Games: FRE (H), BRIS (H), COLL (A), PORT (A), MELB (H)
  • Recent Scores: 117, 77, 111, 132
  • Breakeven: 64

Another one in a purple patch of form, Ryan Griffen presents serious value after a somewhat sluggish start to the season. Priced at $517,000 and with 100+ scores in 3 of his last 4, Ryan Griffen is now at an ideal price to upgrade to him. His performance last week was very handy, collecting 28 touches and laying 8 tackles for someone who isn’t an inside player. Against Melbourne, he amassed 20 touches and laid 15 (if you don’t mind) tackles. Perfect time to get a once ultra premium in.

Chad Wingard (PORT) FWD/MID – $436,300 SC

  • Next 5 Games: MELB (A), STK (H), SYD (A), WBD (H), ADEL (A)
  • Recent Scores: 83, 81, 98, 100
  • Breakeven: 63

A risky, but again, valuable pick if you’re strapped for cash. SuperCoach wise it has taken Wingard some time to get going. However, the last 2 weeks he has started to show that AA form of 2013. Last week against Hawthorn he was crazy good, kicking 3 goals and collecting 15 touches. Against Fremantle, slotted 5 goals and had 17 touches. The most enticing thing about Chadwick is his next 5 games. Outside of Sydney, there is a real opportunity of him to put big scores on Melbourne, St Kilda and the Bulldogs. Roughly $100k less than what he started the year,Wingard is another option if you’re looking for a fallen premium.


Cory Enright (GEE) DEF – $430,900 SC

  • Next 5 Games: OUT, CARL (H), STK (H), GCS (H), GEE (H)
  • Recent Scores: 97, 49, 102, 79, 85
  • Breakeven: 40

With Enright missing tonight’s game against Sydney, it presents a good opportunity to move him on. His performances have been way too inconsistent, which is strange from the king of consistency. His price won’t fluctuate too much so now might be the time to downgrade one of your maxed out rookies and send Enright to Simpson.

Luke McDonald (ESS) MID/DEF – $290,700 SC

  • Next 5 Games: WCE (A), RICH (H), ADEL (A), MELB (A), BRIS (A)
  • Recent Scores: 61, 66, 12, 90, 70
  • Breakeven: 21

It is time to say goodbye to McDonald. His output and fact he decreased in value this week suggests it is time to dump. There are a couple of good options worth looking at as option downgrades, particularly Cam Shenton, who is at the bubble this week. It has been a disappointing run of scores, but I’m sure down the trade we’ll have McDonald in our sides. But for now, it is time to say goodbye.

Alex Fasolo (COLL) FWD – $343,000 SC

  • Next 5 Games: STK (A), MELB (A), WBD (H), HAW (A), CARL (A)
  • Recent Scores: 106, 132, 29, 60
  • Breakeven: 116

I know he is just coming back from injury, but what worries me is his role. Maxwell’s outburst, followed by moving his forward suggest the experiment down back has not worked. Personally, I do not think it was ever going to work out. Now Fasolo becomes that 70-80 point impact player up forward. If this is the case, I would cut my loses and get rid of him. 116 breakeven means unless he can return to pre-injury form, he will start losing money. Time to say goodbye.


Here the key break-even scores to keep in mind heading into round 10:


  • Kane Mitchell (PORT) -56 BE
  • Cam Shenton (STK) -52 BE
  • Tom Liberatore (WBD) 59 BE
  • Joel Selwood (GEE) 81 BE
  • Aaron Sandilands (FRE) 80 BE
  • Dom Tyson (MELB) 16 BE
  • Lance Franklin (SYD) 21 BE
  • Brendon Goddard (ESS) 59 BE


  • Patrick Dangerfield (ADEL) 125 BE
  • Michael Hibberd (ESS) 125 BE
  • Marc Murphy (CARL) 134 BE
  • Gary Ablett Jr (GCS) 180 BE
  • Steve Johnson (GEE) 171 BE
  • Dane Swan (COLL) 148 BE
  • Shane Mumford (GWS) 142 BE
  • Dayne Beams (COLL) 123 BE
  • Leigh Montagna (STK) 243 BE


Unfortunately, I’ve had to close the Pub for this week. However, tweet me at @Mr_Crimmins and not only will I answer the questions already asked, but I extend opening hours and take questions from everyone.

Good luck this weekend community

Mr Crimmins.

sss · 29/05/2014 at 17:51

Hey first
Bartel or simpson

    Matt · 29/05/2014 at 18:03

    Bartel, lucky ive had simpson since the start

    Tom · 29/05/2014 at 18:05

    Bartel! more reliable between the two

The Intense Patch · 29/05/2014 at 17:58

Does Langdon have to go this week?

    Gab · 29/05/2014 at 18:04

    Doesnt have to, playing weak opposition so either way,
    If you can get him to a burgoyne/bartel/or any other premium back get them if not keep him

    Matt · 29/05/2014 at 18:16

    I'm trading him and I'd suggest you do too. Doesn't score well when Fasolo's in the team.

    GarglesnarfFC · 30/05/2014 at 06:37

    No, his BE is 74 so even if he only pumps out 50 he won't drop too much. So you could wait a week and hope he doesn't score a 29.

    Jambo · 30/05/2014 at 10:52

    No, not yet. He should get more $$ this week.

Hazey · 29/05/2014 at 17:59

Bartel for mine.

Owwww yeeeeeee · 29/05/2014 at 18:01

Hello there Mr Crimmins, I was wondering who you would pick out of these brilliant individuals: Griffin, Swan, Barlow or Cotchin. Thanks in advance!

    Emmanuel · 29/05/2014 at 19:59


    Cozza · 30/05/2014 at 00:00

    Barlow…gun. As a little slow his first 2 weeks back form injury, which often happens, but aside from those two games has tonned up his other 3 – 132, 117 and 112. Has a BE of 125 this week which he may not get, so you could go Barlow either this week or next.

    I would go Barlow over the other 3 by a fair margin.

      Cozza · 30/05/2014 at 00:02

      Geez…shoulda read what I wrote before I hit submit! Second sentence was meant to read "Had a slow first 2 weeks back from injury…"

      Gotta get off the juice when looking at the forums.

Matty boy · 29/05/2014 at 18:02

Fasolo to roughy yeah!!

Josh · 29/05/2014 at 18:04

Langford – Bews
Suckling – K Mitchell or Shenton

Hazey · 29/05/2014 at 18:14

Doing some real tossing n turning over what to do this week. I don’t normally ask much but would love to hear ppl’s thoughts on where I should go this week.

Team is

Thompson, Bartel, Simpson, McVeigh, Swallow, Langdon, McDonald, Cutler.

Ablett, Pendles, Goddard, Griffen, Beams, zorko, Polec, Kelly, Acres, Selwood

Sandi, Nic Nat, Derickx, Curry

Pav, Wingard, Martin, Danger, McDonough, Lloyd, Ambrose, Cameron

Kelly for Shenton is trade 1, but trade 2 I am tossing up between completing my backs with an upgrade or adding a premo mid by upgrading Polec. I will wait a couple of weeks for fwd rooks to mature a bit I think before culling them.

I keep coming back to Langdon for Burgoyne or even Mackie to save $50k.

Help me community!!!

    offthenose · 29/05/2014 at 18:31

    I really like the look of Mackie and will be going to him for langdon. Can't afford Mcdonald for Mackie as much as i'd like to do that but once hallahan fully fattens it'l be mcdoanld for barrel or simpson 🙂

      offthenose · 29/05/2014 at 18:32

      Geez my spelling was atrocious!

        Hazey · 29/05/2014 at 19:06

        Pulled the pin… NOW TON UP MACKIE!!!!

          peter pan artichoke · 12/06/2014 at 20:45

          def: simpson, bartel, mcveigh, hibberd, enright, hurn. (georgio, clurey)
          mid: ablett, pendles, beams, selwood, libba, sloane, tyson, k mitchell (crouch, acres)
          ruck: sandi, mcevo (derickx, thurlow)
          fwd: zorko, roughy, dangerfield, gray, fasolo, higgins (shenton, lloyd)
          that is my current team. Trades this week
          fasolo to martin (brings in the Stefan martin and thurlow ruck swing set) leaves me with 92k in the bank
          and then Tyson to who? Can get anyone from def/mid/fwd I have about 570k
          will have 12 trades left.

Kev · 29/05/2014 at 18:18

Paying overs for Simpson if you brought him in this week IMO

    Captain joc · 29/05/2014 at 18:30

    Agreed as his priced to average 113 which he wont

    Matt · 29/05/2014 at 18:33

    Yep, definitely agree, especially considering the quality midfielders you could get for his price or less and some of the value defenders like Mackie for 120k less.

    Im grabbing Mackie this week instead.

Matt · 29/05/2014 at 18:23

At the moment Im looking at trading Fasolo and Langdon to Cam Shenton and Mackie (saves me 100k on Bartel/Simpson, has scored consistent 90-100s)… BUT I have McEvoy and no backup. I'm expected Big Boy Ben to be a late exclusion, if named in the side, so should i just cop the zero or look to bring in Sammy Jacobs or someone for him.

Would love some community thoughts. Cheers.

    Hazey · 29/05/2014 at 19:07

    Tough one…if yr only looking at leagues n have a weaker opponwntbtake the donut on the chin.

    Gab · 29/05/2014 at 21:06

    Howd mackie go for ya matt?

      Hazey · 29/05/2014 at 21:48

      Atleast Matt hadn’t been burnt by Mackie before n was stoopid enough to go bk again like moi. As soon as the lock out kicked in I was like….WHAT HAVE I DONE!!

      Matt · 29/05/2014 at 22:12

      Well aren't you a hero, Gab.

      Matt · 29/05/2014 at 22:14

      Maybe I should ask your advice on all my trades from now on, seeing as you can apparently predict injuries and whatnot.

        Hazey · 29/05/2014 at 22:26

        Would’ve made it close to 90-100 without the injury…. That’s what I’m telling myself!

          Matt · 29/05/2014 at 23:23

          Exactly! 45 points at HT. Hopefully its just a cork and he'll be back next week.

Sully321 · 29/05/2014 at 18:28

Hi community is bringing in cam Shenton for aish a good trade?
This would leave me with money for next week when I bring in a gun midfielder for Higgins or polec

The_Darwin_Ducks · 29/05/2014 at 18:32

Crouch to Shenton
Fasolo or Impey to Wingard/Gray
Who out of these two
Wingard is a lot cheaper but is he worth getting in over Gray I'm just worried he wont be able to kick 5 goals every week because if he doesn't he isn't generating any points.

    Emmanuel · 29/05/2014 at 20:03

    Gray more reliable and likely to score more spending more time in the middle than Chad. Chad needs 3-4 goals to score decently

Sully321 · 29/05/2014 at 18:34

Enright to bartel or Simpson? (Leaning towards simmo)

    Hazey · 29/05/2014 at 18:41

    Bartel IMO. It’s so much easier to give advice to someone else’s team hey!

    shallots · 29/05/2014 at 19:10

    wish i could afford simmo. that little bushranger might be as big as a pipe cleaner but his one of the hardest in the AFL and gives 110% every week. Should be our captain. Wish the Blues had more of him.

    Q- Have you ever seen a stick figure back into a pack of huge men?

    A- Then watch Simpson play!!!!

      Gab · 29/05/2014 at 21:08

      I love the way simpson goes at it alwell, try to play like him week in week out, and i just cant dont have the courage that me has, so much respect for the man

    Emmanuel · 29/05/2014 at 20:04


john snow · 29/05/2014 at 18:36

Is it time for Enright to go. He is a stain in my underpants.

How long is he meant to be out for?

    Matt · 29/05/2014 at 18:43

    I'm keeping him. At this time of the season most of us don't really have the trades to make sideways trades like that. Considering there hasn't really been anything in the news about the injury I reckon he's probably just a little sore and they've left him out to be safe. Should be back next week.

    shallots · 29/05/2014 at 19:08

    he is that skid mark that gets longer and longer. just like his tooth : )

Josh · 29/05/2014 at 18:38

Who is a better option Shenton or Kane Mitchell

    shallots · 29/05/2014 at 19:07

    im going both

    Dale · 30/05/2014 at 17:13

    i am in the same boat but hoping Kanye will have better output. I am wondering if I should trade out Dunstan for him? Any thoughts? Dunstan id on the ball, Kanye o the bench.

Ando · 29/05/2014 at 18:41

is it ok to have griffen and libba in the same side?
not sure how i'll cope when the doggies play poorly

    Donavan · 29/05/2014 at 23:49

    I dont see an issue with having them both. Libba will score well regardless of the Doggies form, Griffen is perhaps a little more at the mercy of a tagger.

MightyDonsFC · 29/05/2014 at 18:42

Why is Walker out?

    shallots · 29/05/2014 at 19:07

    it says knee injury

Matt · 29/05/2014 at 18:45

Need to trade out Tippett and Fas any suggestions community? I also have 280k sitting in the war chest.

JRams · 29/05/2014 at 18:56

Fasolo or Impey to trade out? cash not a problem

    Hazey · 29/05/2014 at 19:08

    Impey…Fas prob has higher ceiling

David · 29/05/2014 at 19:27

And the chaos continues what the hell is Brisbane doing? No Rob the flipper still and now cutler Emergancy!
Also have Langford Emergancy and no Enright (happy to cop the 0 there) plus i missed the boat on Shenton for fk sake cause i ran out of time trying to find the best way to trade in bews and Shenton. Now I'm paying the price and its like another bye round for me yay!

    dognino · 29/05/2014 at 19:45

    Langfords not Emergency, just named on an extended bench for the Sunday game, will find out tomorrow night if he plays

    Donavan · 29/05/2014 at 23:50

    Langford will play.

      Crowmagnon · 31/05/2014 at 07:50

      Langford has been omitted. Named as emergency.

john snow · 29/05/2014 at 19:46

I have all four David….

My plan was to go Flipper to Shenton and Polec to Goddard.

Have to take a 0 in the backline but still went flipper to shenton but had to go Cutler to Bews which I didn't really want. Frees up 250K for next week though.

Could see Steve Johnson drop right down in price which might be a good pickup in a week or two.

Captain joc · 29/05/2014 at 21:09

Could trade out one of walker, cutler or georgiou out swing Langdon or swallow back and then trade in Shenton good idea or not?

    chandanrajdb · 30/05/2014 at 08:52

    Hi Joc,

    why are you thinking of trading out A Walker? HOLD him mate, I have him and I am holding on to him. If it is LTI then get rid of him. This is not the time to do the sideways trade IMO…..

    OUT: Georgiou, swing Langdon or Swallow to DEF and get Shenton.


    OUT: Cutler, swing Langdon or Swallow to DEF and get Shenton.


Mitch · 29/05/2014 at 22:28

Hey Community,
Thinking of moving Josh Kelly on this week, do I bring in Cameron Shenton or Kane Mitchell?

Kristofor · 29/05/2014 at 22:31

Thoughts on Polec? Trade Polec to K Mitchell?

    Donavan · 29/05/2014 at 23:51

    Wouldnt touch Mitchell with a 10 ft pole.

    Look at others, or keep Polec.

      Dale · 30/05/2014 at 17:14

      why what is the risk with Mitchell?

Dave2008 · 29/05/2014 at 22:38

Who to start do you think out of L Taylor from Brisbane or Shenton from StK?

Last Ave Proj
Not sure as Taylor 80 53.44 61
Shenton 99 59.33 59

Leaning towards Shenton but what are the chances of each being the sub? I guess if I find out tomorrow that Shenton is the sub if not go with him, playing the PIes who prob will play a pretty free flowing style against the saints compared to Brisbane against a Malthouse game style?

Thoughts please anyone

    Donavan · 29/05/2014 at 23:54

    I have the same dilema.

    Making Shenton the EMERG, if he scores well, I will bring on S.lloyd for Lewis, and take Shenton's score.

      Dave2008 · 30/05/2014 at 04:35

      Yep I would have done that too good strategy but I have Shenton in the F line and Tayor in the mids so have to choose.

Selena · 30/05/2014 at 12:27

Thoughts on bringing Nic Nat in for Big Boy

    lostlarrikin · 30/05/2014 at 15:36

    personally I don't see any value in Dog Dog.
    Unless Cox suddenly gets injured, I wouldn't expect Naitinui's numbers to change.
    Averaging 70 and recent form isn't alluding to anything north of that.

    At a mid price range, better value in Jamar or Cox

    If have the coin, Ryder, Sauce or Skin Flute

Stumped · 30/05/2014 at 16:41

thoughts appreciated… i'm 9 trades left and 100k in the chest after swapping Fasolo for Wingard and Dunstan for Shenton.

DEF: Swallow, Bartel, McVeigh, Burgoyne, Suckling, Hanley, (Langdon, Bews)

MID: Rockliff, Beams, Selwood, Murphy, Cotchin, Goddard, Tyson, Hartung (Acres, Taylor)

RUC: Sandi, Derrickx (Pyke, Currie)

FWD: Danger, Martin, Dahlhaus, Zorko, Wingard, Shenton (Lloyd, Cameron)

Dale · 30/05/2014 at 17:15

Please help…should I trade Dunstan to Mitchell before tonight's game??????

Roo Boy · 30/05/2014 at 17:57

Will Jack Steven come good? Or too risky? Thoughts appreciated!!!

Richard · 30/05/2014 at 21:17

After much thought, decided to keep Fasolo. Happy at half time.

Nate · 22/07/2014 at 19:22
