Round 14 Supercoach Scouting Report

Published by Barron Von Crow on

VonCrow_smallHowdy folks and welcome to our Round 14 Supercoach Scouting Report.

Round 13 was a frustrating week for some, with popular Captain choices such as Joel Selwood, Gary Ablett, Josh P Kennedy and Tom Rockliff failing to fire, but some were saved by their shrewd planning when they put the VC on Ablett and took a chance on likes of Pendlebury and Liberatore with their Captains picks. We also had the last minute replacements of both Stevie J and Dayne Beams to deal with as well. Round 13 is now in the books though, so it’s time we start looking forward to what Round 14 has to offer! So let’s get cracking.

Also, remember to look out for the red and green Supercoach scores, RED = bad, GREEN = good which may help you out when it comes to picking your captains for the week.

First up, the Top 10 rankings for Round 13

Shannon Hurn / Brendon Goddard – 157 Supercoach Points (10 points)
David Zaharakis – 154 Supercoach Points (9 points)
Jimmy Bartel – 152 Supercoach Points (8 points)
Lynden Dunn – 149 Supercoach Points (7 points)
Matthew Stokes / Brad Ebert – 147 Supercoach Points (6 points)
Lance Franklin / Dion Prestia / Jeremy McGovern – 146 Supercoach Points (5 points)
Matthew Lobbe – 145 Supercoach Points (4 points)
Nic Naitanui / Tom Liberatore – 142 Supercoach Points (3 points)
Scott Pendlebury – 139 Supercoach Points (2 points)
Mitch Duncan – 136 Supercoach Points (1 point)

Brendon Goddard looks like the loss of Jobe Watson won’t have any affects on him, pumping out a season high 157 Supercoach Points. Young Libba had made another appearance in the Top 10 list, along with the increasingly present Scott Pendlebury making the Top 10 list after a fantastic last quarter saw him end the match with 139 Supercoach Points. We also have the trio of Matthew Lobbe, Lynden Dunn and David Zaharakis making their second Top 10 list in a row after their stellar play in both Rounds 12 and 13.

And the Top 10 rankings for the year now stand at

Gary Ablett – 55 Points (8 appearances)
Tom Liberatore – 28 Points (5 appearances)
Joel Selwood / Marc Murphy / Scott Pendlebury – 22 Points (4 appearances each)
Brent Harvey / Travis Boak / Leigh Montagna – 21 Points (3 appearances each)
Steve Johnson / Tom Rockliff – 19 Points (4 appearances each)
Adam Treloar / Patrick Dangerfield – 18 Points (2 appearances each)
Jobe Watson (2 appearances) / Josh P Kennedy (3 appearances) / Jimmy Bartel (2 appearances) – 17 Points
Shane Mumford – 15 Points (2 appearances)
Aaron Sandilands (2 appearances) / Callan Ward (2 appearances) / Jarryd Roughead (2 appearances) / Brendon Goddard (3 appearances) – 14 Points
Matthew Boyd / Bryce Gibbs – 13 Points (2 appearances)

Libba makes his 5th appearance in the Top 10 list and is now 3 points clear of 3rd place, but still a long ways away from Gary Ablett. Scott Pendlebury has moved into equal 3rd after not being in the Top 10 after Round 9, with 3 appearances in the Top 10 between Rounds 9-13. Goddard has moved up to 9th and both Matthew Boyd and Bryce Gibbs round out the Top 10 on 13 points.

@ MCG Averages: 101.90 Supercoach Points, High Score of 162

Captain Pick(s):

JPK has his 2nd lowest ground average at the MCG and only one of two stadiums he averages less than 90 at (the other being StarTrack Oval). He’s had 15 career games there too, so it’s not like his average has been spoiled by one bad game in a group of 4 or 5. Tie that with his low-ish career average against Richmond, and it’s not looking that good, on paper, for Josh. Still, what should happen on paper and what then happens on the field are often completely opposite things in football. Franklin could be the go here, with Richmonds defensive efforts not being overly great lately and allowing a player to kick a bag each game. 6 goals for Ballantyne last week, 4 for Petrie (and his only 100+ score in Supercoach this year) and 5 for Ben Howlett. Franklin could be in line for a repeat performance of last week and another 5-6 goals.

@ Adelaide Oval Averages: N/A

Captain Pick(s):

Lobbe has scores of 145 and 150 in his last 2 games, but will be rucking against WIll Minson here rather than Billy Longer and Tom Derickx here, so he may not be able to reach those levels again. Libba is 2nd in our Top 10 ranking list, so he’s quickly becoming a must select for most people who have him, so he’s the obvious VC pick here.

@ MCG Averages: 85.79 Supercoach Points, High Score of 195

Captain Pick(s):

Hodge seems to like playing Collingwood, with a fantastic career average against the Pies. Still, his form this year makes him a risky pick, but he’s still capable of putting up a score, so if you’re the type that plays dangerous with your VC, then Hodge would be a guy to risk it on. Swan has some good scores against Hawthorn, but hasn’t scored 100+ since his fantastic game against Essendon in Rd 6. Some may say that makes him due, others may say it’s because he’s past it. We’ll have to wait and see on that one. Also can’t discount Scott Pendlebury either.

@ Patersons Stadium Averages: 71.60 Supercoach Points, High Score of 93

Captain Pick(s):

I fear we may see another game in the 70’s or 80’s this week as he’ll likely get the tag from Crowley. Some may also consider Aaron Sandilands against Stefan Martin due to the 13cm and 17kg difference between the two. Martin looks like he’s making the most of his 2nd chance at the Lions though, so it may end up being a battle anyway. Could also consider Pearce Hanley too, who has started to round into some form since the Lions bye round.

Captain Pick(s):

Goddard has been in some ripper form, out of his last 6 games, 4 have been 120+, including a high of 157 last week. We might see Kerridge back to tagging next week though, so I’d look out for that. Another to consider here for a VC who isn’t listed is Rory Sloane, who has a 3 round average of 124 and scores of 136 and 127 over the past 3 weeks.

Captain Pick(s):

Not much green for the Carlton players, who’ve seemingly let their B Team take over the games against GWS, something they likely won’t be able to do this year. Murphy and Mumford (sounds like the name of an old folk band) would be my picks for this one. Murphy has had 2 quietish games against Geelong and Hawthorn, but we may see another 140+ game here, something he’s done 3 times already this year.

Captain Pick(s):

I like Naitanui as a pick here. He has a 3 round average of 123.67 to his name, as well as a fantastic score of 142 last week. He’s really started to come into form since the Eagles bye round and I think he’s got a chance to put up a big score. The Saints rucks have really been taking a battering lately with Dawson Simpson having 52 hitouts and 117 Supercoach Points and Matty Lobbe having 43 hitouts and 150 Supercoach Points. Going up against Cox and Nic Nat might be too much for young Billy Longer to handle.

Captain Pick(s):

Brent Harvey has a 3 round average of 129.67 and has two 130+ scores in his last two encounters against Melbourne. If you’re completely desperate for a Captain pick by this game, then you could probably make worse picks! Todd Goldstein has also been smashing Melbourne lately and he did have a score of 166 a fortnight ago, so it’ll be interesting to see if he can continue his form against the “new” Demons. At the very worst, this game is perfectly scheduled for us to use the Max King loophole.


I really like the Naitanui option, but the scheduling makes it tough as he’s playing after all my quality mids. Still, I like what he has to offer, so I will be putting my VC on Gary Ablett and the big C on Nic Nat. Still, I won’t be taking a 100% risk as if Gazza hits around his usual average, then I will lock his score away. We could also go a more familiar Pendlebury VC / Ablett C route as well.

Pendles VC, Ablett C for me.
Although I am considering a Goddard…

Smashing work Barron!

Garglesnarf FC

Think i’ll put the VC on Gaz, and the C will go to Ward if required.

Flacid Jaff

I'd do the same, but will The game finish and Pendles Score be up before the GC game starts? If not I'll probably go Gaz VC, Sload C!


Agreed, Im pretty sure the collingwood game wont finish before the GC game starts so the usual pendles/GAJ option wont work this time.


With the starting times of the pies v hawks and the suns v cats a bit close here, I'll chuck the VC on the bloke who saved my blushes last week, libba. The C on gaz if needed


How much money should rockliff fall down to in coming weeks?


Who to trade in out of Sloane, Jack, Stokes or Prestia????




I'm vs top of the table this week and need to bring in a midfielder that will likely score big this week. My current midfield is (Ablett, Pendles, Libba, Kennedy, Beams, Selwood and NDS). I have 627k for this position


Murphy has had a couple of average games and is due for a big one. He could go big against GWS and is only priced at 560k.


premos do not simply go big vs GWS


ward nice pod and a true gun


Libba into Ablett for me.


Wow looks like the doggies shutting down gray very well the last 3 times played and also overall!!
Was going to be bringing him in this week now looking at other options might be able to get him cheeper in another two weeks


Thanks alot for that Barron. And also he is in career best form so he may get them points.
Would you recommend getting him in this week? If he scores 115 this week then next weeks BE will be 135 and will go down a little in price.
Think he will get near that?

Beady Eye

Barron, any chance of Callan Ward's breakdown vs Carlton?

Beady Eye

Thanks Barron, much appreciated (though it does make the captaincy decision harder!)


How about sloan? Is he worth looking at for a late C pick?


Sorry if I'm stepping on your toes Barron:

Callan Ward

Last 3 VS Carlton: Rd 10, 2013: 128, Rd 6, 2012: 71, Rd 16, 2011: 121
Total VS Carlton Averages: 5 game, 81.2 Supercoach Points

You probably can get his Spotless record and highest SC score from a previous edition of this fine Scouting Report.

Beady Eye

Cheers Wattsie, good to know there's backup if BVC's unavailable!


Fellas I don't get to watch much Swans games these days and I was wondering where Kieran Jack plays this year and how Hannebery out will affect that

old mate

Hey Community,

McVeigh, Swallow, Burgoyne,Hanley, Enright, McDonald,
(Cutler, Bews)

Ablett, Selwood, Dal Santo, Beams, Cotchin, Swan, Griffen, Shenton
(Acres, O'Brien)

Sandilands, Jacobs
(Currie, Thurlow)

Harvey, Gray, Dangerfield, Martin, Parker, Zorko
(Cameron, Honeychurch)

not too happy with my team this year other than my forward line 🙁

exactly $40k in the bank very unsure of trades this week for the first time this year.
any input is appreciated
do you think its worth just holding?

big aggots

Maybe swap Shenton fwd with Dangerfield and trade in Stef Martin (assume you have Dustin at F4). That allows full premo mids, strong scorer at F6, opens up swingset with rucks and also loopholes etc.


hi guys think miles would be a great option as bench cover or even a m8 has a nice break even of -44 and looks a keeper love ur thoughts

Itchy Nuts Pieman

I'm with you Ben. Nothing spoken of him cause he is 246K. Perfect M9 IMO.


Swan has been an epic blight on my team this year.. picked him up when he was low 500's and supposed to be value.. he's down to 478000 now, pumping out awful scores, and predicted to drop further…
Do I cut my losses and cull him… Could bring in Parker from Sydney for about the same price…


stay with swan trades are important near end of season if are going to trade better of going for a ultra premo because idont think parker will out score swan. i might even pick up swan soon


same here mate.. i reckon its a suck it up and hope he turns things around


Similar story with my rage trade to bring Griffen in abt round 8 or something…. JJust have to suck it up hey.


Thanks for the advice guys.
I have 9 trades left. Tempted by Swan out, and Martin and McGovern in.. but i think I'll just HOLD for now..


Kane Mitchell to Miles?

Itchy Nuts Pieman

If Mitchell doesn't play then good option.


So if mitchell plays, dont trade?


He will be playing on my field


Miles looks to be a great prospect, but at this stage of the year its a huge gamble at his mid price point. Unless you are bringing him in as bench cover, then pass. Each trade from here on in must be done with a certain amount of guarantee for your team – this time of the year u should be looking to lock in ultra premo's only. I know thats easier said than done (ie you need a lot of $ and very hard to generate this year), but maybe wait a week or two for some other options like the anticipated Honeychurch to generate cash and the upgrade to a rolled gold gun


If Mitchell plays you should hang-on to him.

Miles will make some cash, but better to suited to bench cover, as I doubt he will out-score Mitchell.

Also Mitchell is still making cash, any way of keeping Mitchell as M8, and Miles at M9?

Itchy Nuts Pieman

Miles is flying under the radar this week. Hardly noticed bar a few astute coaches. Perfect M9, great job security given Tigers season is done. He gets plentty of the pill. If your looking for bench cover this week Stiffy Martin & Miles are glorious options.


I agree Itchy Nuts, great BENCH COVER options – for this reason I think thats why Miles isn't raising too many eyebrows – not many are in the enviable posi of having a full premo team and are now suring up their benches


Reading your post have gone two bargin picks this week

Higgins > Franklin, L.Taylor to Swan (avg 25.6disp under $500k)

Def: McVeigh, Bartel, Burgoyne, Swallow, Simpson, Langdon (Gardiner, Cutler)
Mid: Ablett, Pendles, Beams, Selwood, Johnson, Swan, Tyson, Polec (Shenton, Hartung)
Ruck: Sandi, Cox (Derrickx, Currie)
Fwd: Danger, Martin, Parker, Pavlich, Franklin, Chapman (McGovern, Cameron)

Could do Derricks to Martin, Swan next week?


Higgins to Franklin is a good move.

I would hold off with Swan, still not convinced he can be considered a premo (in current form).

I would also retain Derickx, as I dont trust Martin to be consistent.

Joey Joe Joe

Crazy to hold Derickx – Martin is the #1 ruck and pumping out tons. Pike will be back any day (probably this week) and Derickx will either taper off altogether or get dropped.

Bank a bit of cash and get on the Martin train!


Hey guys team is

Bartel, McVeigh, Swallow, Burgoyne, Suckling, Mackie (gardiner, litherland)
Ablett, Pendlebury, Libba, Selwood, Dal Santo, Beams, Priddis, Cotchin (acres, o'brien)
Sandi, Nic Nat (s.martin, thurlow)
Harvey, Danger, Martin, Parker, Zorko, Breust (llyod, c.cameron)

I only have 7 trades but not overlly worried.
Any advice on finishing my team would be greatly appreciated 🙂


If you have money in the bank you could look at getting someone descent for Cotchin like s.johnson or someone around that price. Or you could upgrade suckling




Breust out! He has been horrible!
Maybe a downgrade to stefan martin that will give you $$ then cotchin to a super premo?
Other then that loving it


Pitty you have S.Martin and Thurlow both on the ruck line, would have made a nice swing set if one was forward.

Other than that, like your team. Suckling and Breust would be next to move, could downgrade Breust to a cheap ruck, and swing S.Martin to forward, and use the money to get a premo defender for Suckling. Simpson will be cheaper in the next 2 weeks.

Garglesnarf FC

At their respective prices Cotchin is the one screaming for an upgrade, Scully is outscoring him lately and he has only tonned up a mere 3 times this season. Do you have any cash left to upgrade Cotchin to Fyfe or Barlow, or even Rocky in a week or 2, otherwise a downgrade to Miles give you a cow, a pile of cash and someone who scores the same.

Moving Martin fwd for Breust would be nice as well, but TBH you could just sit tight and see what develops over the next two weeks.

big aggots

Breust will come good. Put himself in a ripper position numerous times to receive the pill close to goal but was continually overlooked. Stick fat with him, when he gets it he never misses.

mungos men

s Lloyd to ben brown for fwd/RK, cotchin to nat fyfe or Robbie gray FWD/MID leave around 40k+ to upgrade suckling if needed…


Can Stefan Martin be selected as a forward this year?




Diggin the NicNat C call. May have to do that myself, B. Or do Pendles VC and Boomer C.

Another outstanding report, Barron. Pour yourself a nice drink this evening.

john snow

Buddy could explode this week for the VC?


Hey guys probably going to do A.Fasolo to S.Martin as he won't be back for a while. What do I do with L.Shuey? I am limited on trades so do I trade him out? Thoughts would be great thanks


Hey Danners, Think I'd sleep on it until selection. Most up-to-date report says he's a test and should play. Later game should be a help.

Also, he has a low BE (80) and his value is in one of those tricky amounts where you're going to have to dip into your reserves to get a solid upgrade.

It's Round 13. And you're limited on trades. Bottom line I'd give him a couple more rounds. If he barely hits his BE this round and it's apparent his ankle is hindering him after a couple looks, I'd toss him.

Hope this helps, Big D.


Hi community, need your thoughts on my team.
I have 8 trades left with $39,000 left

Backs: Swallow, bartel, burgoyne, hurn, hanley, langdon
(georgio, cutler)

Mids: Ablett, pendles, kennedy, ward, selwood, rockliff, beams, kane mitchell
(hartung, acres)

rucks: sandi, mummy
(derickx, thurlow)

fwds: danger, martin, zorko, parker, wingard, shenton
(lloyd, cameron)

Was looking at Miles for Mitchell or Honeychurch for hartung to allow that mid/fwd swing


Hey Tom. Honeychurch move seems good IF he's selected. That's the best option of the two.

Miles is a tricky pick, especially on a Tigers side that is somewhat psychotic on how they're using their rooks this season. Also Kane is on a winning side so if he's selected he should do 75+. I'd give him a round then see what your gut says.


I would go the Hartung to Honeychurch trade.

Hartung is out for a few more weeks (and may not get back into the Hawthorn team, as they have many to return), and Honeychurch will surely get his chance soon (he is in form in the VFL).


Team looks great. Hold your trades, you will need them.

The Garbo

I believe Honeychurch was sent to the VFL tribunal this week for a front on bump – I do not know the result though. But he has been in very good form


Hey guys I need some help with my trade options.

Bartel, McVeigh, Swallow, Hanley, Hurn, Walker BENCH: Laidler, Hunt
Ablett, Pendles, Libba, Selwood, Beams, Murphy, Goddard, Mundy, BENCH: Shenton, Acres
Sandilands, Jacobs, BENCH: Brown, Currie
Dangerfield, D.Martin, Roughead, Zorko, Wingard, S.Martin BENCH Ambrose, Cameron

$237,500 7 trades left
A) This week trade out Laidler for cheapest defender and then next week trade out Ambrose for Parker and Shenton and swing Hunt to my mid and get Simpson which would give me defense/mid cover and would leave me with 4 trades left.

B) Trade out Laidler for cheapest defender and then Acres for Miles. Then in 2 weeks time trade out Ambrose for Parker and 1 week after that trade out Shenton and swing Hunt into my mids and get Mitchell when he is cheap. This would only leave me with 3 trades left so not sure what to do.

Any other options are greatly aprreciated.


BC, how it be? My biggest question would be is how are you doing in your leagues? Meaning, you seem to have a pretty good team. Do you need to do either this round?

That said, I like the thinking behind A. Parker and Simpson into your lineup will make it more formidable. And more trades, easier SC livin'.

Good luck this round.


Thanks for the reply throttle. I am going al right in my leagues. I will probably go with option A but my only concern is that if I have a defender and midfielder out for a week than I will have to cop a doughnut and option B with resolve that.


Unless that "if" happens this round at selection, I wouldn't worry about it. For now. I was given the same piece of advice this week. Asked should I make a strong D7 or finish making an all-premium midfield. To a person everyone said "focus on the people on the field." I could get a donutnut but even so, I have enough strong horses to carry the load.


Plan A is the better option.

Parker and Simpson will both drop in price this week, depending on this weeks scores they are also likely to drop the following weeks also. With 7 trades dont rush in, particularly if your league position/s are strong.

It is about making the finals, and then having the strongest team, if that means potentially dropping a game, still making the final, and having a better team when you get to the finals, I would be prepared to drop the game.


Hey BCH,
Looks like ur friggin rockin mate.
With 7 left I would be holding fire unless u have some dramatic issues come team announce.
Currently have bench cover on all lines which is a luxury at the moment given the injury toll.
Without crunching the numbers, I would guess u have a 2500+ team there.
If it ain't broke…

Garglesnarf FC

That is one nice team. As Throttle suggest, you don’t have to do nuthin’

Shenton to Miles (or McGovern and swing Wingard onto the bench in the mids keeps DPP)allows you to do Ambrose to Parker right now. You still have 5 trades and nothing that needs changing bar injury.

Then you have solid bench cover, a cow and another premo. Laidler makes a handy D7 if req.

Mitchell will be cheap in 3-6 weeks depending on when he plays, but that injury is one which strikes old blokes more than once, so buyer beware.

NB – If named Shenton to Honeychurch is worthwhile as well for cash gen and DPP.


hey guys hows are we all,
what are the communities thoughts on suckling pig? Was going to trade him out for zorko this week (by bartel swing) and by getting zorko in it would complete my forward line. Does he have much more money to make or is it time to say goodbye?


Suckling is ready to move. He averages 85 points per week, and has a breakeven of 87 points.

Dont expect any more money from Suckling.

Its time to take this little piggy to market.


Hawks have a tough run of games coming up. Ill be getting him out next week ( have other things to fix this week)


Majestic and respledant as always BVC. Very interested in the Nic Nat Captain option after the VC on GAJ for those with the great dogdog. I am that sure that Nic Nat is about to go gangbusters.


G'Day community, since asking and using the knowledge of this community I have risen over 20,000 rankings in the last 3 weeks. So a big thank you is due.

My team is-

DEF – Bartel, Swallow, Enright, Malceski, Hanley, Firrito (Schoenmakers, Tippett)
MID – Ablett, Pendlebury, D.Beams, Priddis, Goddard, Cotchin, D.Martin, Zorko (Shenton, Acres)
RUCK – Sandilands, Naitanui (Derickx, Lobb)
FWD – Dangerfield, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Roughead, Gray, McGovern (Ambrose, S.Lloyd)

I have just $4k in the bank, and 8 trades remaining.

I am thinking of holding trades until the likes of Shenton, Acres, Tippett, McGovern, Ambrose & S.Lloyd appreciate over the coming weeks.

I would appreciate your thoughts.

By the way I have used 1 trade this week to achieve the above team, leaving 8 trades for the balance of the season.


Nice team, Donavan!
Leaving some in the bank is a great idea.
Possibilities of players to bring in later on –
S Mitchell into DEF
Barlow into MID (viaa DPP Martin move to fwd for McGovern or sam Lloyd)

Otherwise I wouldn't like my team against yours – even if you didn't make my suggestions above…


Thanks Wes, probably going to hold onto those trades.

Garglesnarf FC

Here is a left field idea.

I believe Cotchin is one you should consider trading out. He has no 100’s in the past four weeks, only 3 all season and as a comparison, Miles is averaging more than him. Cotchin to Miles generates $230k, without sacrificing any onfield points, and you can use that cash to turn Miles to an uber premo in three weeks when he hits $400k.

A more consertive idea is Ambrose to SMartin for cash generation. Martin will rise $200k+ over the next 5 weeks while Ambrose will be lucky to gain $20k.



That is a left field move, but if I had more trades I may have done it.

Ambrose to Martin, is a move I will consider, after teams are announced.

BTW the advise you have given has been great.

Malceski & Gray in particular. My gamble of Mumford to NicNat a few weeks ago is also looking great.


Garglesnarf FC

Well done on Nic Nat, like you those that went early and grabbed him at early to mid 300’s did a brilliant job!


I remember an article prior to the start of the season talking about the number of players from your initial team that remain with your team for the entire season. I think that is was stated that the previous 3 winners had at least 13 of their original squad of 30 players still in their teams at the end of the supercoach season.

Just wondering how many original players people have remaining in their teams at this stage.

I have only got 11 original players in my squad of 30, and barring injury intend to retain all 11.

Just wondering how this stacks up.

Also got to consider that we started with 30 trades this season, 6 more that previously years, so maybe 11 is ok?

john snow

I have 14 originals: Suckling, Enright, Clurey, Ablett, Pendles, Libba, Beams, Sandi, Mcevoy, Thurlow, Danger, Martin, Franklin, Ambrose

Garglesnarf FC

14, but 3 of those are rookies 🙁 FMSCL

The Garbo

I have 16 but they include Thurlow, Currie, Polec, Laidler and McDonald

Joey Joe Joe

Sad not to see a TAT this week again – I was looking forward to reading about Nathan Fyfe. Just $549k, averaging 115 for the year and has BE of just 90 – has to be the premo buy of the week. Just 1 game under 100 for the year and has bottomed out. Some concern that Lyon will rest at some point, but too good an opportunity to pass up.


Have Dunstan and want to trade for cash.

Who should I trade down to with a good B/E?

The Garbo

Miles is really the only decent mid on the bubble. But priced at an annoying 245k ish


thoughts on my MIDs appreciated.
Rocky, Ablett, Beams, S Johnson, Swan, Cornes, Danger, Tyson (Shenton, J Lloyd)

Before the byes, I was ranked pretty well on afl fantasy platform (2600 / /17000)… since then, danger, cornes, Johnson have cruelled me. Consequently I've plummeted 20,000 places.
Forgetting trades left (cos on af fantasy I just get 2 a week regardless), what would you do?
I have 360k in the bank… so I am flush for upgrades all round.

My thoughts are cornes out, Ebert or Barlow in is probably a given now…

Danger is sitting in my mids for this round due to bringing mvgovern into f6. If Danger fails again, would look at replacing him too… perhaps brent Harvey to come in and keep that dpp swing there…

Tyson has been doing enough to keep his m8


Garglesnarf FC

Yep Cornes > Barlow for mine.


I dudded myself 100,000 spots there… was 2600th of 170,000 odd players.

Thanks Garglesnarf…


I would be looking to move Swan and Cornes. Maybe get in either Pendlebury or Kennedy and Miles.

Given yu have already used a trade on McGovern his week, perhaps do either Swan or Cornes to Miles this week, then get Pendlebury or Kennedy next week. Miles is scoring well, so won't hurt your points score.


Miles is a roughy… not sure I need to take a risk with $$ I got though.
Already have Tyson as M8… that would give me two there am not great with if I got Miles.
both jpk and pendles have that good consistent 100 plus range I want.
Ebert has that 130+ ability though with his role/team… which is why I think maybe him.
Interesting you are not keen on Swanny too… his stats aren't that bad… from what I see on my platform, 7 x +100 pts from last 8 games. that isn't too bad at all.

Looking at Miles run over next week aren't too bad… this rd not so good, but has Lions and Saints after… so that is a good run there.


McVeigh, Swallow, Burgoyne,Hanley, KK, Bartel,
(litherland, flynn)

Ablett, Selwood, Steve J, Beams, Dangerfield,fyfe, rockliff, K.mitchell
(Spina, O'Brien)

Sandilands, grundy
(Currie, nakervis)

Shenton, wingard, roughead, Martin, Tex , Zorko
(ambrose, Honeychurch)

Want to trade out KK but idk who need help only 6 trades left and 24.800k

mungos men

Hold Trades, Wait for litherland to appreciate, also ambrose closer to finals…


But KK price is going down :L


At least KK is playing and can score ok.

SUNS are playing geelong, Hawks and Pies in next 3 weeks, Defenders should see plenty of the ball 😉

I think you have to hold him for now, with only 6 trades you will regret trading him out. With only $24k you will need to make two trades to replace KK with a decent defender. Hold.

KK will drop another $15-$20k. I would hold him until you can trade in Sam Mitchell in about 3 weeks.


would i have enough to even get sam mitchell when he comes back?


You could cut Grundy loose for Stef Martin and make $80K. As Jock predicted in the preseason he's been bloody useless. I thought he'd perform a little better as the Pies primary ruck but 60pts a game is just "turrible!".

This would give you enough cash for a decent premo such as Shaw or Birchall and the combined trades would probably lift your scores by at least 50pts a round but would only leave you with 4 trades.

The most prudent thing is probably to do nothing this round but the option above is something to consider.


Libba VC, Gaz C. Cutting it a bit fine on timing but if Libba is scoring well into the 3rd quarter I think I'll just take his score, if not hope that Gazza gets back to his fine form.


"Hey" community, and thanks Barron von Crow for another well researched article!

Thoughts on who might score better on Sunday for my 'C' loophole in case Ablett fails … from; Kade Simpson, Marc Murphy, or Brent Harvey? I'm thinking Boomer.


Are there any solid FWD options out there for under 400k?




Wingard and Josh Kennedy are just under $400k.

Rioli is $440k and is really cheap for what he could do.


steven motlop or if you have the stones n. riewoldt

big aggots



Stef Martin for the money. Could also provide valuable ruck cover in a swing set scenario.


I was considering trading Riewoldt to Motlop…
In my opinion Motlop is a bargain at his price.
But there is a risk factor

Garglesnarf FC

Reiwoldt is my biggest oops of the season. I went for him at $510k over Boomer in Round 6. If you were going to trade him out this week, I would probablt suggest SMartin is a better option.

Since returning from injury Motlop has scored, 67, bye, 55, 72, 32, 61, 112, and ave of 66 and his price has dropped $95k. Not sure if that 112 is a blip, or a sign that he is back to form, but from my point of view hes not screaming ‘pick me’! if goes back to being crap, you will lose cash and it makes getting out of him almost impossible.

To my way of thinking Martin or McGovern offer a cheaper way out of Reiwoldt which will nett you more cash for similar ouput, and the bonus of a hefty price rise over the next 4-5 weeks, making them ripe for upgrade just prior to finals.

big aggots

Motlop ended 2013 with 149, 103, 120, 103, 92, 16 (sub), 77, 117 & 98. Without that sub he averages 108. Had it 29 times last week, looked fit and has Suns, Ess, Bulldogs, Melb, GWS, Nth Melb, Carlton & Lions on the way home. Jump on as a POD.


Who's the best pick out of:
Boomer, Parker, Martin or Gray?


on value for $ – Parker
on consistency – Gray
on potential – Boomer

IMO – Gray > Boomer > Parker > Martin

mungos men

boomer for me, the way there playing (hot one week cold the next) he wont be able to get a rest as they will be fighting for top 4 till the last game… with soft run home could be difference come finals…

Is it worth bringing in a cut price Wingard and pocketing cash or go full premo and bring on Gray?


I’m considering trading Higgins down to Wingard to pocket money plus Chad prob has more potential in this case.
On the flipside I got Gray last week, think he’s a must have. Depends on yr trades left and money situation


I still have bloody Big Boy Mcevoy, saw on hawks website he was brought back through the magoos last wk, didn’t sound that promising other than hitouts. Will b sharing load with Hale IF he even gets a game this week.

I’m toying with the idea of trading him for a cheap R/F swing as got S.Martin in the fwd, use S martin as R2 (with dericx as loophole if needed). R1 is Sandi

Would leave me with $360k to spend on my last 3 upgrades, only 9 trades left at present.

Thoughts, genius or have i gone bonkers!!

mungos men

sideways too dogdog(nic nat)


what has been people's best trade of the year?

reviewing my list of trades, it is hard to see a standout but the best so far is probably Clurey >> Langford in week 2.

Itchy Nuts Pieman

Cotchin to Matt Thomas. Cotchin has been rubbish


Brodie Martin to Matthew Jaensch in Round 2.


Dumping Daisy's backside ahead of the herd for Josh Kelly on the bubble.


Grundy -> Jacobs

Beady Eye

Xavier Ellis out, Robbie Gray in – Round 6.


what was Gray worth then?

I went Ellis to Flipper in week 6. What ever happened to flipper?


Gary Rohan to Dom Tyson after round 2. Just spewing I offloaded him after round 6 for 100k profit.

Beady Eye

Gray was $500K exactly if you can believe it.

I too was seduced by the lure of Flipper. Copped an injury(?), followed by a couple of vests and was never seen again. Such a shame, he had some real potential.


Mumford ($576K) to Naitanui ($368K) – Round 10

Allowed me to get Gray & Malceski in Round 11


getting on malceski early on when it was a bit risky. stoked with that trade.

The Garbo

Martin or McVeigh for VC? – in not available all day Saturday so cant pick from my usual guns


Out of those 2, McVeigh



The Ranger

$332K in the bank but only 8 trades left.
Going for league wins and currently 1st in one and 2nd in the other.
I'm 4 spots short of full premo and would like to hold off trading for a few weeks before going bang with my saved cash in time for finals.
Is Derickx to S.Martin worth doing?
Gives me another 80K but I have no other ruck cover and I don't want to trade Martin out again at a later stage.
Thoughts Community?


Hey fellas,

My team is struggling atm would appreciate some input.

bartel, mcveigh, swallow, walker, docherty, c cameron. (Georgiou, cutler)

Ablett, Libba, selwood, beams, jack, Cotchin, Stevie J, Shenton (s gray, acres)

Sandy, Jacobs (derickx, thurlow)

Gray, danger, dusty, Parker, L Taylor, z merret (honeychurch, c Cameron)



Will be watching jack martin very closely if he plays

john snow

So bloody Mcevoy is still out. Worst selection of the year for mine!!!!


Same here!! Strongly considering a rage trade!!


Kersten or McGovern for this week?


McGovern, Kersten has big wraps, but is untried at AFL level.


Neither. You have missed the boat with McGovern and too early to be trading for Kersten until he is certain to get his 3rd game (and assuming good form). I assume you maybe have forward line issues though and no $$?? Have you considered Martin from Bris?


suckling to zorko a good trade? Only have 24k to spend


Depends where it leaves your swingmen.

ie. If all your Def/Mid swingmen are then in defence, then you lose the ability to swing them. If you have another Def/Mid still in the Mids then it is a very good trade.


Who would you rather in preference of order? (eg 1, 2, 3, 4)

S. Martin



Itchy Nuts Pieman

Agree with BC


1. McGovern
2. Miles
3. Martin
4. Kersten – because his price wont change this week.


Finally a new defender rookie in Zak Jones. Will be very interesting to see how he plays. Hope he doesn't start with the vest.

Itchy Nuts Pieman

They have been rare this year


Zorko, Parker or Dalhaus?




Thoughts on trades…

Ambrose to Kersten

Higgins to Boomer

Plus I am RDT at the moment and just started a supercoach team and need a league to join…

Itchy Nuts Pieman

You have 2 weeks before Kerstens price will change. So I’d have a look at him first. Geelong also has a habit of giving a few games to new players then sending them back to the magoos


yeah, dont get kersten yet, unless your desperate for cash. and i mean desperate.


should i keep n. roberston from brisbane or trade him to j. hunt from melba to open up a DPP
Roberston has a high BE and will most likely lose value
Thoughts Community?

Itchy Nuts Pieman

Only if you have plenty of trades & cover. You are trading in someone that won’t play this year.


my other mid bench is hartung and i have 10 trades what do u say?

Itchy Nuts Pieman

Hartung to Anthony Miles. Good bench cover. You will need cover at some point. Then you could think about that trade. Have you got defence bench cover?


I would move Robertson (his price will drop), and whilst he is named to play this week, who knows how many games he will get between now and seasons end.

I would consider getting Miles in, his price will increase significantly over the next 2-3 weeks, and he gets plenty of the ball.


What are people thoughts on miles JS?

Itchy Nuts Pieman

Very good I’d say. Seasons done. So time to give the kids a crack. He wins his own ball. Not many tigers doing that ATM.


Miles has good JS, although Richmond does like to give rookies 2-3 games, then a week off, then another 2-3 games.

Itchy Nuts Pieman

True. You don’t want to be relying on him as M8. Perfect M9


Gone like this for now and I think I'll stay with it.

Higgins to Buddy. I've never traded a player back into my team, enough of my pride I need teh best forward.

Shenton to Fyfe. Want Fyfe in, could have gone SJ or waited on Rockliff but went with the Knyfe. No Freo players so a better spread. Other option here was Nat Jones.

Passed on S. Martin. I'm gambling without a backup. Thurlow in my Rucks so Martin could have been a good backup.

Langdon, McDonald and Langford all my deep defenders. A bit of a worry. Langdon should maintain an 80ppg though so won't drop much more.



id look at upgrading langford and mcdonald and keep langdon as my bench cover (as long as they make u enough cash for the right trades for you).
not sure about martin. im thinkin wingard. if i get wngard i wont get martin.
i have fyfe. fyfe is a gun, good pick.
and i also ditched buddy for zorko (in the first few rounds) and traded him back a few weeks ago. i hated doin it aswell but it was a good decision to get him back.


186k and 11 trades in the bank, thinkin about goin impey up to wingard. at this stage of the season id want wingard to be a keeper rather than an upgrade player. my question for you all is, is wingard good enough to be a D6 keeper? surely he is better than a player that averages 82.
