Jock is a legend

henry

mcevoy.

acacia Florabunda

should of Unloaded him for Nic Nat ages ago

Kevin

Hey jock and community,

Who is the best midfielder to get under 620k (already have Beams, Selwood under that price)

MightyDonsFC

If you can wait a week get rocky, if not fyfe looks to be the pick of the bunch

Kev

Will fyfe get Lyon'd at some point though? Ward is worth looking at IMO

Daniel

Agreed. Fyfe should be a target this week. With Freo's upcoming run, this may be the cheapest he will be for the rest of the year. If u take out his one bad score of 76 (only time below 100), his avg goes from 115 to almost 120. At 550K u cant go past him!

toxic

KJack

Tray

Ward

peter pan artichoke

saw some others doing this but mine is a bit different.
already have thurlow in the rucks and traded stefan martin in last week

who do i trade derickx down to, to create 200k so i can then upgrade higgins into a premo mid such as a JPK Fyfe Rocky Ward Steven Johnson.
have ablett, pendles, libba, selwood,sloane,beams and mitchell in the mid already.
this will leave me with 10 trades left.

thoughts?

Kev

Cheap, playing R3 aren't around at the moment. You could look into Lobb or Lowden knowing they've had a taste of senior footy and made a pretty good fist of it. Or Ben Brown from North is named on the extended bench this week so you'd think he's not far away either.

Alternatively you could go right down to Archie Smith. He's close I reckon. Leppa might give him a shot in the last few games of the season

HouseofDarsh

Surely Martin would be valuable enough for Brisbane to play out the season. The team is rubbish and he might just be one of the few who are standing up.
I would think that would keep both himself and Leuenberger in the same team?

The Garbo

Trent West was playing alongside Looey since game one – I completely expect Martin to have that same opportunity

Garglesnarf FC

Agree completely Garbo. The only risk with Martin is injury, otherwise he will play all year.

Lueys return from the knee means he will likely be managed back, and could even be a vest candidate for the remaining games. As No1 ruck I expect Martin to maintain his 100 output, and only expect a minor 5-15pt drop IF Luey returns.

taylorwoof

Also if JB pulls the pin, Martin may spend some time up fwd later in the year when or if Luey returns.

mivic

Niceee thx jock u r defs my father

dannyyboyy

is impey up to wingard a good trade? i could get martin instead but it feels like goin backwards a little bit. also im stuck with acres and hartung as my bench cover. it cost me 2 donuts last week. with a score of 2240 i should have been set to make up ground but instead it hurt. im in need of a good rookie mid. miles seems a bit to expensive at his price. are there any good young mids coming through soon that i should wait for?

The Garbo

Nothing really yet, Morbatio and Honeychurch are supposedly close to a debut.
Not really that fond of wingard, he's like a key forward where if he doesnt kick goals he doesnt score well. But he is very cheap and has a lot of potential and skill and will rise in price. So there are definitely worse options.

andrew

Go with Sam Gray, he will get more game time over the next few weeks as I believe Port will rest some of their
premium mid's.

Daniel

What are peoples opinion on getting Kersten in this week? I want to go Shenton/Taylor to Fyfe and would need to dump someone (prob Impey) to make the cash.

Kev

With geelong's rookie policy I'd stay away. Lang/Hartman got a taste of it last week, now they are both out. I'd be more willing to take a punt on Honeychurch

Todd

Defenders: Bartel, Swallow, Hibberd, Langdon, Enright, Hurn (Georgiou, Cutler)
Midfielders: Gaz, Pendles, Jelwood, D.Beams, Dangerfield, Mundy, S.Johnson, Goddard (Shenton, Acres)
Rucks: Sandilands, Mumford (Currie, Thurlow)
Forwards: D.Martin, Parker, Zorko, Pavlich, Franklin, Tex Walker (Ambrose, Cameron)

$326,400 in the war chest and 9 trades left. I really want to bring in Stefan Martin to create the DPP link with Thurlow

Need help please!

MightyDonsFC

I'd focus on enright and text walker first

pete

Id be looking at getting boomer in fwds for tex but you would be nuts to pass up on martin he gunner make some good cash if you need it later on

taylorwoof

Hey Todd.

Thinking Tex to Martin for your side.

Outside of Tex's 146, his scores have been 56, 56, 72, 47 ( Ave 57.75 )

Break Even of 107 this week, has appreciated 79.7K could be time to move on.

I'm upgrading him to Luke Parker this week.

MightyDonsFC

To anyone thinking about picking up Shane Kersten, I'll tell you a little bit about him. Shane has proven himself a prolific goal scorer at vfl level 2012 (38gls17mtch) 2013(41gls13mtch) and 2014(9gls3mtch). He's been on the cusp of making his debut for Geelong, but injuries have prevented him. His game style is likened to that of Jack Gunston, minus the goal kicking accuracy. With Tom Hawkins being the elite power forward at Geelong and Hmac/Simpson resting at FF, I'd expect Kersten to play a third tall in the forward line and should have reasonable JS provided he doesn't get injured.

Daniel

I'm thinking of picking him up this week, so I can get Fyfe in this week too. I think I should be safe as long as his form warrants selection.

mungos men

Will be fighting for his position with Josh Walker. I expect him to play 3-4 games

Jerry

Hi Community. I want to get in Stefan Martin for ruck cover. Do I upgrade Ambrose or downgrade Riewoldt?! Would love some advice…

Matt

Ambrose, Riewoldt is a keeper.

Mick

Hi Community. I want to get in Stefan Martin for ruck cover. Do I upgrade Ambrose or downgrade Riewoldt?! Would love some advice…

Garglesnarf FC

Jerry/Mick, nice split personality there.

My advice is, that it depends on if you need the cash from Reiwoldt.

Ambrose is just about done, so it’s time to trade him, however I have opted for Reiwoldt as I can then afford to upgrade Langford to Heath Shaw.

Will

Alright lads, I missed my chance to give my wisdoms on the podcast, but I thought I might chip in here. I've got Nick RIewoldt who we know has been dead since the early rounds and I was about to trade him for Stef Martin when I tuned into the podcast. Jock's input on Stef's situation is absolutely arousing with him averaging nothing more than 80 from here on in, especially with Luenberger coming back in. Then I looked at the Saints and who they were playing this week. They've got West Coast at Etihad with an 8 day break in their back pocket, coming off a thrashing from Geelong in which Lenny, Joey and Roo won't be happy with. West Coast are also coming off a thrilling battle against the testing Suns which will have some sort of affect on them. I then looked at the battle of the midfields between the two sides. The starting lineups show Billy Longer, Jack Steven, Joey Montagna and Lenny Hayes up against Naitinui, Priddis, Hutchings and Gaff. I believe the Saints midfield can match that of the Eagles meaning Riewoldt will get enough of the ball this weekend which hasn't been the case in the weeks he has been… well, dead. Also, with Glassy gone for the eagles, Riewoldt is more likely to have a day out on someone such as Brown or Mckenzie. SO, what I' saying is, if you're considering trading in Stef Martin this week, consider what Jock and myself have pointed out, and also, if you are still holding on to Nick Riewoldt, hold him for at least one more week, as it might be the week he rises from the ashes like a bloody phoenix to save us all! Thanks lads.

Beady Eye

Strong wisdoms there, Will.

The only fault I can see in your logic is that Glass hasn't taken the best forward in about 5 years – that job has gone to Mackenzie, so Glass' retirement may not have a significant impact on the contest.

But if you've held Roo for this long, I agree that you might as well hold for now. His BE's drop back to 60's and 70's the week after next, so he should get back to a healthier price eventually.

Garglesnarf FC

Lueys impact on Martin will be negligible IMO. Look at it this way, Brisbane have a young ruckman returning from a serious knee injury who also has history with his knees. IF you bring him back at all it will be with a mere 4-5 games remaining in the season, and an alternative playing very well.

Why would Brisbane risk him in this situation, when they have so little to gain? If they play him at all I suspect it will be via the Green vest, so he only gets a qtr or 2 to get some game time, but I really cant see him having anything other than a minor impact on Martins scoring.

Azmataz

Great wisdom there Will! I am still considering getting in Roo coz he's just so cheap and is ready to go BANG! I am not sold on Stefan and my gut feeling is he will burn all the poor souls that bring him in. I do get it wrong though, like I was wrong about buddy.

taylorwoof

Shuey will replace Hutchings in the centre square if in final 22.

Cozza

Hi community, struggling with my options this week. Team is currently:
Backs: Bartel, Simpson, Swallow, Hibberd, Hanley, Enright (Georgiou, Litherland)
Mids: Ablett, Pendelbury, Selwood, Ward, Beams, Cotchin, Goddard, Barlow (Acres, O’Brien)
Rucks: Sandilands, Jacobs (Currie, Thurlow)
Forwards: Gray, Dangerfield, Martin, Parker, Pavlich, Shenton (Ambrose, Cameron)

Have $221,700 in bank and 8 trades left. Ranked in the top 2,000, so not much of a chance for the prize, but sitting in top 3 in all 5 leagues. I’m really happy with the team on field, and really only want to improve my F6 (Shenton), before I’ll leave the team alone until finals. However, I have very little or very poor bench cover – no cover in the rucks and poor cover in the mids/def.

Options this week are:
1 – complete team by going Ambrose>Harvey, Shenton>Kersten. Leaves me with $82,700 cash, 6 trades, and only Kersten as Fwd bench cover (questionable JS), O’Brien as mid cover and no ruck cover; or
2 – improve bench cover by going Acres>Miles, Cameron>S.Martin. Leaves me with $78,900 cash, 6 trades but still one on field premo to bring in. Will have choice of Martin/Ambrose/Shenton at F6.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Wolfey

Team is looking good Cozza. I totally agree with going full premo team and then your set until finals. At this stage I'd say You want to save your trades until the finals, Meaning you shouldn't stuff around with mid-pricers at this time of the season.

Considering your top 3 in all of your leagues and if your only going for the Grand final win your goal at the moment should be to just stay in the top 4. If your able to conserve your trades until finals it gives you the upper hand against most teams.

Hope this helped a little,
Cheers Wolfey.

Derek

great looking team, I would be proud to have that as mine.

Hold trades, then if one of your premos goes down, trade them out.

Jack

Have both Langdon and Enright on the field. Who of the two should I trade out for McVeigh?

Kev

Tough one. Flip a coin really. Wisdom says get rid of your rookie, but boris hasn't been lighting it up this year. It's possible langdon will begin to tire towards the end of the season. I'd get rid of him first

Derek

I have exact same problem. I like that Langdon is DPP, but so is McVeigh.

I will trade Langdon before Enright.

Langdon has over achieved, and is likely to tire as the year goes on, scores could drop and maybe even rested. Enright is a hardened Footballer who will get better as the season gets to the pointy end. His only worry is injury.

Zo123

Langdon

Beady Eye

I'm tossing up between big [email protected] and Nick Dal Santo for my next-to-last rookie upgrade.

Was leaning towards Dal for his consistency and great SC finals run, but the fear is creeping up on me that everyone else will jump on board Buddy and I'll suffer for it at the pointy end of the season.

Thoughts either way community?

Donavan

I see where Gargle iscming from, but Buddy is on the move, I would grab him this week.

Garglesnarf FC

Take my advice here with a grain of salt, because in SC terms Buddy gives me the runs. Love watching him play, but hate what he has done to me over and over again in SC. Never again will he stuff up my season.

NDS

Beady Eye

I can appreciate the sentiment Gargle! Was one of the main reasons I've steered clear of him until now. Thanks for being the voice of reason.

Kristofor

Martin or McGovern?
.. and for Taylor, Ambrose, Shenton or Cameron (Adel).. all still have relatively low breakevens/ potential to grow a little more, but if I miss Martin or McGovern now.. then they're gone.

9 Trades left, and could do with a little more coin to upgrade a future player.

Donavan

McGovern for mine. Dont trust Martin or his hamstrings.

I would probably move Shenton

Patrick

final word all:

Do i either trade out suckling for zorko?
or suckling for miles?
i only have 24 k in the bank
cheers

Matt

Zorko is a proven premium, Miles may be out of the side next week.

pieofgod

Good morning beloved community,
i'm stumped i am. Big Boy McEvoy been left out again – 3-4 weeks for a corky, with just M.King + D.Currie on the RUC bench i've copped donuts each week, managed to win 2/3 in my league though which is all im after this year.

I've got 10 trades left and 4 non-premiums on the field still (more than i would have liked at this stage of the season).

My question is do i move him now?

Cheers

Kev

10 trades…. I'd hold him for now. In a good place with your leagues so I'd get those rookies off your field. Have a full premo team before making sideways trades to fix up any problems

SCaddict

You could consider bringing in Stef Martin, either directly for Big Boy and free up $220K, or alternatively move Martin into your forward line and also trade in a DPP to your ruck bench such as a Ben Brown to establish a swing set.

Although the latter would cost two trades it would give you ongoing ruck cover for both your starters going forward, assuming you already have playing forward reserves of course,

I guess it comes down to your own individual tolerance for pain and how many kicks in the kahunas you can stand. Of course it's easy for others to say hang on to the trades mate and just grin and bear it but 4 weeks out is beginning to get a little old.

But if you are still winning your leagues then maybe you can take a few more snipes in the plums. Really only you can answer that one but I vicariously feel your pain bro!

pieofgod

Cheer SC and Kev. Sc thats exactly where im at…plums north of the naval after 4 odd weeks being Big Boy-less. I have Stef Martin for Fasolo from last week…meaning i could grab this brown fella…means no P.Hanley though

Ill have too look at who im playing closely

Many thanks

julz

I'm in the same boat Pie, luckily though I have had Derickx at least to cover for Big Boy. I have 3 non premos on the field though and 9 trades ATM, as much as I would like to rage trade McEvoy I think I will hold.
Am considering a sideways to Nic Nat but thought of that 3 weeks ago and could of pocketed $90K then, didn't do it as didn't trust NicNat so loath to do so now.
I looked on Hawks website this week, McEvoy is apparently over the injury but they are easing him back through the magoos (reserves) as he has had not much game time this year. He got 33 hit outs last week in magoos but only 9 possies.

SCaddict

As you already have Martin then Ben Brown is your man. Not only would you avoid a donut this weekend (assuming you have at least one forward reserve playing) you will set-up ruck cover for the coming rounds as well.

Furthermore it looks like Brown is close to getting a game in his own right so reckon he could be worth one of your 10 trades.

As Julz suggested you could also look at a sideways to Nic Nat instead but I would probably bring in Brown myself.

Bellybuttonfluff

A couple of months ago I donated to the site. Does this mean I get the monthly podcast thingy or is there some subscription thingy I haven't seen yet?

SCaddict

I'm sure all will be revealed next week as Jock indicated in the poddie.

Bellybuttonfluff

Oh ok cheers must have too much cheese in my ears! πŸ™‚ bit excited

Duck

G'day Lads,

Need some help with my forward line it's an absolute mess!

Danger, Zorko, Reiwoldt, Walker, Shenton, Fasolo (Ambrose, Cameron)

Was thinking Fasolo>Parker, Shenton/Reiwoldt>Martin before they both go up.

Would love your thoughts thanks guys!

Derek

get buddy in….you know you want to!!!! πŸ™‚

Duck

Buddy did come to mind, But i brought Reiwoldt early in the season and he has let me down big time! So i'm cautious about bringing in another KPP. Not entirely certain i'm getting rid of Reiwoldt, might be a mistake getting rid of him just coz he has had a terrible run, he could come good. Should i be sticking with him considering i brought him in at his top price?

Sarah

I did the same. Am considering Reiwoldt to Miles this week as I'm so sick of Reiwoldt and his average scores of late. I reckon the saints youngsters are getting tired and Reiwoldt isn't getting any younger. Sorry to do it but I think I'll be locking in my loss by trading Reiwoldt this week.

Duck

I've decided to hold onto Reiwoldt (for this week at least) and go fasolo>martin as i have thurlow already, and upgraded Mitchell to Fyfe. Depending on Tex and Nick's output for the rest of the season it means i only have to upgrade Shenton for full premo.

taylorwoof

Hold Rooey.

In your situation there; Fasolo to Parker, Shenton to Martin looks solid Duck.

ynwa

G'Day Community, have $196900 in the bank and 7 trades left, looking at 3 options this week:

1) Derickx-Martin then Lloyd-Parker making team full premo and leaving $26k and 5 trades to then hold out til finals.

2) Lloyd-Martin creating a ruck swing with Thurlow, 1 short of premo and $176k and 6 trades.

3) Hold!!

Any thoughts would be appreciated, Cheers!

mrfosak

…Or a 4th option which is Sandi down to NicNat leaving 6 trades and $300k in the bank for that final upgrade.

julz

I would hold with only 7 trades left but Derickx has almost topped out so if you want to take the cash from him, now is the time to do so with at least someone to trade down to.

Zo123

Having the same troubles… and I have decided to go all or nothing with my trades. You will only lose money on Derickx from here on. Play hard and take option 1!!

Donavan

Depends who your on-feild rucks are. If they are scoring well, and can be relied upon stick with them, and if Derickx is just bench cover, let his value drop a little. Anyhing can happen, Pike may get injured again this week, Martin has injured his hamstrings twice this year already, who says that wont happen again.

I wouldnt trade for ruck bench depth, until all other lines were premo.

andrew

Is anyone thinking of dumping Rocky after last weeks performance? He is going to drop heaps in price.

Matt

There is the chance that Rocky might be spending more time up forward now that Brown is out which will effect his scoring output, not really a good idea to sideways trade premos especialy at this stage of the year and also players dropping in price is irrelevant if you hold on to them and back them in. Only lose money on a player when you trade them out

Zo123

Doesn't matter about the price drop if he will be in your team at the end of the season. Definitely hold.

SCaddict

You'd be insane to ditch Rocky. He's a definite keeper and very likely to be a top 10 mid for the rest of the season. In fact I'm waiting for him to drop a tad to get on myself.

Trades are far too precious at this stage to fritter away merely to avoid a cash hit. Just have to suck it up and watch everyone else jump on I'm afraid. We've all been there if that's any consolation.

Matt

Is it worth using a trade on Sam Lloyd to Stefan martin and using Thurlow dpp which leaves me with good cover on each line ?

Or will Martin lose his spot in the team as soon as Burger comes back meaning a sort of wasted trade ?

big aggots

West still played even with Berger around. He'll affect Martin's output a little but I can't see him losing his spot.

Garglesnarf FC

If you already have Thurlow at R3/4 then it’s a no brainer.

Zo123

Lads,
Need some advice!
current FWDs: Danger, Parker, Martin, Zorko, Franklin, Shenton (Ambrose, Lennon).
Move Shenton to mid bench and sell Hallahan. Looking to bring in one of Dahlhouse, Roughead or Pav.
Pav looking tasty with Freo's upcoming run. Thoughts?

Pitchka

How long is Harry Taylor out for so I can decide whether to get ride of him or Langford with $120k?

TOM

Is it time to get rid of shenton?

Porcelain

Not yet.
Unless the cash cow you are bringing in (eg Martin) will make much more $$ than Shenton, or unless the premo (eg Fyfe) you are upgrading to will rise by more than Shenton's over the next 1-2 weeks.

I am holding Shenton for another 1, maybe 2 weeks.

andrew

I anyone running the gauntlet with no bench coverage this week?

Zo123

Made some changes as I had no bench coverage in my mid with Hallahan out. Now have Litherland, Shenton and Ambrose for bench coverage but no one for rucks. and it will be like that for the rest of the season I suspect.

Fevolenko

What is the communities thoughts on trading out Cotchin for Miles? Cotchin is leaking cash ATM, while Miles could earn my team some quick cash over the coming few weeks. Cheers guys.

andrew

How many trades you have left?

Fevolenko

8 trades left ATM

Zo123

I'm holding Cotch. Depends on your trade situation. Of course down grading an under performing mid is going to help you create cash, but if you run out of trades before finals you will be crying. Especially when you watch Cotch rack up a few 100+ scores still this season (please god PLEASE).

Theo

I'm pretty sure that second caller is actually Alex Rance. Sounds exactly like him.

Theo

Scratch that, third caller

Nolsey

G'Day Boys
I am really stuck here and dont know what to do
Team is
Mcveigh, Bartel, Simpson swallow suckling haqnley langford cutler
ablet,pendles, beams, selwood, rocky, gray, steve J, o'brien robertson acres
sandi minson currie king
danger martin zorko pav roghy ambrose lloyd cameron

got 12 trades 23k
need cash fast to upgrade final 2 mid spots and swing gray fwd, thinking mcgovern will make the most cash quickly, lloyd – mcgovern, thourghts please
cheers

Donavan

do it.

Nolsey

cheers Donavan
was thinking robertson to miles to field instead of obrien as well

Donavan

Yeah Robetson to Miles would work.

Then make Mile your mid emergency, and put acres in for O'Brien, if Miles scores above 60-70.

Matt

Hey Jock, thanks for giving me a shout out on your Community podcast! Currently sitting in 7th overall (Whateverittakes). Hoping to stay in the hunt this week and with a bit of luck mate I might be up there come the pointy end of the season. Thanks for the community's support, it means a lot. cheers.

blake

good onya mate

Donavan

Well done, great to see membrs of this community doing so well.

TOM

Hi community
I really don't know what I should do with my team. I have 8 trades left and $34,000 left

backs: bartel, swallow, hurn, hanley, langdon, burgoyne (cutler, georgio)
mids: ablett, pendles, beams, rockliff, selwood, ward, kennedy, k.mitchell ( hartung, acres)
rucks: sandi, mummy (derickx, thurlow)
fwds: parker, danger, martin, zorko, wingard, shenton, (cameron, lloyd)

Was thinking of maybe
a) kane mitchell to Miles
b) Shenton to Mcgovern
c) Llyod to Kersten
d) Llyod to honeychuch
e) hartung to honeychurch

Then when mitchell comes back a straight swap for langdon.

Thoughts??

Donavan

a & b

Donavan

actually can you afford, Mitchell to McGovern & Hartung to Miles

TOM

Donavan I can afford to do Mitchell to mcgovern and Hartung to miles via the shenton swing. I will have $96,000 left

Leighroy

Would you consider Martin in forward line to set up ruck forward swing link. Then trade Derrickx to a non playing ruck and put the cash into another line. You still have ruck cover and forward cover for little cash and Derrickx will struggle to keep his spot when tippet comes back

bob

2 trades this week
Higgins to Martin to make some cash then Lloyd out for buddy or Parker.

Cant decide between parker or Buddy.
Buddy has a higher ceiling but parker has been more consistent. Both about the same price.

Thoughts from the community?

SCaddict

It's a coin flip but would probably go Parker if I could only have one. I already have both FWIW. πŸ™‚

Cam

Yep. Parker on consistency.

john snow

Buddy!!!! Parker is the boring answer. I'm going the VC on bud tonight

Terry Mayne

Aright I have lost cuple of games due to the captain loophole I dont know how it works. I want to have josh kennedy tonight as VC and my back up wil be Ablett. I dont know how to hange he captain if he scores well. can someone tell me how t do it. The captain option doesnt come up on the bench

Zo123

You choose Ablett as C (on field). Choose whoever you want as VC. If your VC has a cracker game then bench Ablett and play a player who is DEFINITELY not going to play. Make him Captain. Make Ablett emergency.
When your captain doesn't play you automatically get Ablett's score. Plus your VC score is doubled.
You must pick a VC who is playing before the GC game though. So Josh Kennedy is a great choice.

Cam

You need a someone one the field not selected to play. Max King from Melbourne as a ruck is ideal because he plays on the Sunday. Put the E on your playing ruck who is playing. C on Ablett. If Kennedy scores well then move the C to the non-playing ruck. If JPK scores 100-ish again then leave the C on gaz. If your captain doesn’t play you get the VC score and the emergency ruck’s score counts regardless of who you put the C on. Always safer to do it in the ruck department as there’s less chance of being screwed by late withdrawals and copping a donut.

julz

Pick a line where you have a non-playing starter whose game is scheduled for AFTER the Swans match.
For example, Hallahan, Acres, Hartung, Impey etc.
Put the VC on Kennedy, if he smashes out 130+ you can then put your non-player on the field by swapping them with someone who is on the field currently, and put the Emergency on whoever you take off the field. Then put the C on the non-playing player (it will be activated as they are now on the field not on the bench)
For example, put Impey on the field in place of Dangerfield but make sure the emergency is on Dangerfield so you will still get his score to cover for Impey's donut. Also, as Impey is a donut if you make him captain you will get your high VC score from Kennedy.
Just make sure you only have one emergency on the forward bench (ie Dangerfield) – if you have 2 players named emergency on the same line you will only get the lower score count.
Hope this makes sense

julz

Whoops this was in reply to Terry Mayne's comment above!

julz

See my reply below under Tim Cahill's comment LOL

Terry Mayne

Thanks guys! hopefully use it to my advantage this time

Tim Cahill

Looking at my last MID upgrade to full premium this week. Am trying to decide between Steve Johnson and Nick Dal Santo. I'm leaning towards Dal Santo due to North's schedule and he's more of a POD.

Who would you bring in?

Thanks for the help, community!

SCaddict

If I had to bet I reckon Stevie J would produce the higher average in the final 10 games but he has a knack of missing games so you would want to have decent bench cover if you pick him.

Cam

Also keep in mind the draw and the Crowley factor in r20. Out of the three I’d go Mr Steven Johnson.

Remy

Guys, I am just outside top 8 in my two best leagues.
I have 13 trades left and (probably) need to trade heaps to get into the 8.
I was thinking:
Riewoldt to either Stefan Martin or Motlop
KK to Andrew Walker.
Good trades?
Advice would be great.

wes

I like Nroo out for either martin or motlop
Motlop may have big game vs suns – suns big defs are good, but their small???

julz

Should I get Parker in forward line or Hanley in to complete my defence?

Have gone Hanley so far as figured Parker might drop a bit in price. This means playing Shenton and Ambrose on field in forward line this week though but they would be trade bait next week.

Have traded in Miles in the guts so would be able to loophole him against Langdon (if I get Hanley) or Shenton (if I get Parker, but then Langdon stays on the field in defence as my D6).
Thoughts, 9 trades left.

Guest

stokes or ebert?

MightyDonsFC

Ebert

Pittz

Rioli or zorko ?

Zo123

Zorko will play the rest of the year. Rioli is an injury risk. Zorko.

Pittz

Which trades to make

Gordon to ross

Then kand mitchell to rioli

Or

Higgins to stefan martin

And kane mitchell to stevie johnson ?

MightyDonsFC

2nd option

Leighroy

2nd

Kevin

Anyone seen Stevie J next five weeks???? Gold Coast, Essendon, Bulldogs, Melbourne and Gws!!!!!!!!

The Filth

He will probably get reported against Essendon…

What happens to Derrix when Tippett comes back and pyke is playing? Will he still be good r3 ?

Leighroy

If you have Martin it’s time for him to go. If no cover I would leave him and hope one of the big boys go down. Let’s face it goodes, franklin, tippet and poke have all missed games this year and Derrickx is straight in if one of them go out

Looking to ship off Hartung and Dunstan, have 100k in the war chest to spend.
Any suggestions?

It depends on how many trades you have left, and how much cash you need to fill your team with premo's.
There is only Martin & McG at the moment that will generate some big $$.

If you have enough trades after getting rid of Hartung and Dunstan – then trade in some cash cows.
Otherwise, it is time to start finalising the team with premo's (I am loading uip on Freo players because of their easy draw for remainder of season.

Matt

my team is: Bartel, Simpson, Birchall, Jaensch, Suckling, McDonald (Langford, Bews)
Ablett, Selwood, Murphy, Beams, Zorko, Griffen, Thomas, Hartung (Dunstan, Aish)
Sandilands, Ceglar (Cox, Derickx)
Dangerfield, Martin, Parker, Roughead, Wingard, Ambrose (Taylor, Cameron)
11 trades left and $103,400 in the bank
