Jock Reynolds - The Father of Fantasy

 How is your first weekend without Sir Gazzlington goin?

Sauce with 110, Sloane with 105 and Danger back to his best with a trouser zip challenging 159.

It’s a no brainer on taking the VC loophole on Danger… but with Gaz gone, I must admit I’m considering taking Sauce’s 110 on the loop.

How is your weekend going so far folks?

    Nicky dal or Barlow boys ?

  2. BCHawks says:

    So it would of had to of been Judd that Crouching picked. Anyway I am on 442 from 4 with buddy performing badly again.

  3. big aggots says:

    Had to pull the trigger a week early and bring Smitch into defense this week for Hibberd. Sitting o. Gaz for a week as I want Rockliff. Have Zorko as cover for this week.

  4. Mark says:

    Still thinking about trading wingard to b Harvey. It would leave me 4 trades and $230,000 in the bank. Also will b bringing Sam Mitchell in next week. Thoughts?

    • BCHawks says:

      Same here I traded him out for Gray this week, sick of his terrible scores.

    • john snow says:

      I went wingard to parker this week. Wingard is now guaranteed to go 120 plus this weekend

  5. jaydos says:

    Thinking of trading Ablett for Barlow or Greenwood to make a bit of coin to fix another area of my team or is there someone else i should consider?my other mids are Pendles JPK Libba Sloane Jelwood Priddis and Beams.Thoughts plz

  6. john fitzgerald says:

    is it time to trade roughy out?

    • throttlefinger says:

      Roughy is simply one of those frustrating forwards who will make you love him with a 160 score then go Casper and hit 68. I'd hold unless you don't have Parker, Gray or one of the more reliable forwards.

    • john fitzgerald says:

      if it is time to give him the flick i am holding onto gaz this week because im versing the worst player in my main league and i will swing gary to defence and pick up sam mitchel i could then get any fwd.

      thoughts of a fwd would be boomer or dusty

    • SCaddict says:

      Hawks have a diabolical run home so yes I'd look to 'upgrade' him if you can, especially if you have more than 5 trades. With less than 5 trades you probably have to keep him unfortunately, all things being equal.

  7. scano says:

    traded Ward for Gazza.

    was thinking Libba but hoping Ward will continue his good form.

  8. john fitzgerald says:

    who for captain?
    jpk vc – pendles c
    jpk vc – fyfe c
    pendles vc – fyfe c

    with the last option i will have to make a risky decision nearing 3 quarter time.

    • jockreynolds says:

      Gday John – I like that last option if youre on the ball at the right time

      • john fitzgerald says:

        thanks mate, i get back from football at 3 so ill be able to keep a hawk eye on the situation

      • john fitzgerald says:

        thanks mate, i get back from football at 3 so i will be able to keep a hawk eye on the situation.

  9. Mangrove Jack says:

    I went to DePendelberry to replace GAJ, 5 trades left. Thought Hibberd would be back and now no cover on bench. How did ZJones concussion become an Achillies problem.

    Have the V on Parker and C on Pendles

  10. Chewy says:

    Mora or the church and will mora get a full fame boys ?

  11. shayne says:

    thoughts on Dal Santo V Greenwood as last mid

  12. FootyFanatic says:

    Who would you trade out if you could only choose one out of Tex Walker or Wingard.

    • jockreynolds says:

      Wingard. Tex should start to assert himself over the next 2-3 weeks

    • SCaddict says:

      If I was to bet I reckon both will continue to frustrate and disappoint myself.

      However Crows do have a fairly easy run home so perhaps Tex can rack up a bag here or there. I just wouldn't count on it though from what we've seen thus far.

      He probably needs another full preseason to get back to the Tex of 2012. I plan to dump him from my AFL Fantasy team next week as he's only been treading water in most of the games he's played in 2014.

  13. Jacob says:

    How is Kerstens js? Or is there any other forward rookies?

  14. TOM says:

    Is Selwood a good capatain option

  15. antonucci98 says:

    VC Options – Nicky Dal Vs Sainters
    Stevie J Vs Melbourne
    Naitanui (remember cox is out)Vs Brisbane

  16. Luke says:

    Who should i start onfield to cover floggard this week c.shenton or m.honeychurch?

  17. Michael says:

    Big Benny Brown went down in the sheds at 1/4 time – may get subbed out, not sure what's wrong with him atm.
    Also anyone know what's up with Bartel? 14pts nearing 1/2 time!

  18. jockreynolds says:

    Griffen OUT. Libba holders – watch out – tag will go to Libba now

  19. mr dj. says:

    D: Swallow – Bartel – Malceski – McVeigh – Simpson – Suckling – Litherland – Georgiou
    M: Ablett – Pendlebury – Selwood, J – Priddis – Beams, D – Fyfe – Murphy, M – Rockliff – Honeychurch – Acres
    R: Jacobs – Sandilands – Currie – Brown
    F: Harvey – Dangerfield – Martin, D – Roughead – Martin, S – McGovern – Lloyd – Cameron

    5 trades left, $50,300, 3rd in league, 6732 overall

    1. Ablett > L. Parker (next week s McGovern > Libba via Parker swing to Fw)
    2. Ablett > R. Gray (next week same as above)
    3. Ablett > Libba
    4. Ablett > JPK
    5. better option

    thoughts please

  20. Cashcows says:

    Should I take jelwood 144 VC or risk it on fyfe?

  21. dognino says:

    Does anyone know how long treloar will be out for? I don't have cover for him, and if he's gonna miss multiple games I might trade him out to ward or Barlow

    Cheers community

  22. Derek says:

    Had to play Shenton this week to cover for Rocky, he was SUB. Had time to change to Honeychurch, he was SUB but still had time to change to Johnstone (Carlton)

    • Derek says:

      Go Blaine! Seems odd, but I really need to keep Rocky.

      • Derek says:

        Blaine is 7sc at 3/4 time

        • SCaddict says:

          You just can't take a trick you poor bugger.

          You'd think at least one of these blokes could register at least 40pts going into this weekend but their head coaches had other ideas.

  23. David says:

    Who should i put the C on this week out of D,Martin, Beams, Pendles or Pavlich?

  24. Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

    Should be some huge scores this round. Looking at 2500 odd personally!

    • SCaddict says:

      Yes Pieman I'm projected to hit around 2500 too. Like many folks I have Pendles as C today so how he goes will have a significant determination on where I eventually land. So 150 plus would be sweet! 🙂

      • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

        Nice one SCA. How’s your overall rank. I’m hoping Pendles pulls off a monster

        • SCaddict says:

          777…a nice easy one to remember ha ha.

          Hoping to bob up a few places after this round but will just have to see what the final wash up is tonight. How about your good self?

        • Me too Pieman! 200 from Pendles would be nice :p

          Are you a Collingwood supporter? or Just like Meat pise?
          Or both?

          Haha i'm a one eyed pieman myself – Hoping for a nice win today!

          Rank 116 – hoping to pull off a top 50 or so. best before this year is 1761 (last year)

          • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

            I am a die hard pies man. But I love meat pies myself. I’ve knocked over my fair share. Rank is 590. So not too bad. But 6th in my main league. Really tough league. 007 would sound better SCA

          • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

            Fantastic rank TG. That’s nuts. You still in with a shot to win it?

    • jockreynolds says:

      2418 projection at the moment Pie

      • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

        Not bad at all Jock. Had the VC on JPK but I can’t get the score. No loophole options. Bench played early this week

        • Michael says:

          I did the same bloody thing – didn't realise until after all games yesterday! Have C on Fyfe as a POD, hoping he can blast another 150+.

      • Nice one Jock – Mine is 2462, on 1797 w/Pendles as (C), Mundy, Dusty, Sandi and Beams.

    • BCHawks says:

      had some bad scores from Hanley, Roughead and Bartel but I should crack 2400

  25. Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

    How is everyone travelling

  26. blake says:

    looking at 2300 odd but having shenton, litherland and honeychurch on field for hibberd, rocky and the dufflecoat has cost me well over 200 points. Over than that travelling ok.

  27. BCHawks says:

    The week I trade out Wingard is the week he starts to perform well!

    • john snow says:

      It was guaranteed, I traded him this week as well. Got Parker for him though so he surely wont score as well as him this week or for the rest of the season

    • Tommykwr says:

      I also traded him out but got dal santo

    • SCaddict says:

      Nah you made the right move. He just goes MIA too often to really trouble the Champion Data boys. Plus it looks like the Port bubble has now officially burst and they have a challenging remaining draw.

      The kid hasn't even averaged 80 for the season so you'd have to say he just isn't fantasy relevant in 2014 unfortunately.

  28. john snow says:

    At the moment I have the C on Fyfe, thinking of changing it to Pendles….


  29. Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

    Wonder what Ross has install for us today

  30. john snow says:

    No feedback, ended up going with Pendles, hopefully the right call. Plays well against Essendon. Fyfe could go large this arvo too though

  31. Michael says:

    H/T Bombers vs Pies relevant SC scores
    Bombers: Chappy 87, Ambrose 58, Heppell 48, Ryder 47, Daniher 23
    Pies: Pendles 59, Sidebum 55, Beams 52, Swan 33, Cloke 18, Langdon 17, Kennedy 0 (sub)

  32. Derek says:

    All going well, ahead of opponent by 47. I had Cloke, he had Ambrose.

    Just when you think you get a win….

  33. Michael says:

    approaching 3/4 time Freo vs GWS:
    Freo: Fyfe 85, Pav 84, Mundy 77, Barlow 74, Johnson 57, Sandy 52, Mayne 46, Morabito 5 (sub)
    GWS: Greene 97, Ward 87, Mummy 63, Kelly 35, Cameron 26, O'Rourke 0 (sub)

  34. BCHawks says:

    A pretty poor 2311 for me this week. I hope that I don't drop to much in the ranks.

  35. Danners16 says:

    2486, a good score, not good enough though losing a league by 1 point due to scaling. Just got to hate it sometimes

  36. David says:

    2416 🙂 with the likes of Bartel and Shenton stinking it. Looped Steve Johnson for captain 🙂

  37. Horse says:

    Rank: 334 (hope to climb again). Rockliff DONUT hurt a potentially good score…

    Good (14 100+): Danger 159, Boomer 150, Selwood 144, Ward 132, Fyfe 127, Malceski 123, Parker 123, Mcveigh 121

    Bad: DONUT, Bartel 57, Jaensch 78 (goes to the bench next week, Cutler out S Mitchell in)

  38. The benchmark says:

    2513 all premium squad with 3 trades and 200k in the bank. Cruise control

  39. Tommykwr says:

    2400 on the dot with Liberatore as captain. Also had a donut and mackie stinking it up in defence
    How did everyone else go?

  40. Adam says:

    2326 with 21men, not too shabby at all

    Fyfe cap

    Bartel and Jaench stinkers didn't help

  41. The Garbo says:

    pulled a 2422 this round.
    Quite pleased with myself, especially entering the round with ablett + goddard on the bench, whilst having to play Shenton (ended up as sub…) and Ambrose.

  42. Michael says:

    What does everyone think par score for this week is?

    Finished on 2469.

    Highlights: Enright, Murph, Parker, Ambrose, Danger, Jelwood, McVeigh, JPK, Cotchin, Beams, Simpson, Zorko all perfomed above expectation.

    Lowlights: stuffing up captain loophole – had VC on JPK but left it too late to get the C off Fyfe, only cost me 13pts luckily; shockers from Bartel, Hanley (only traded him in this week too!), plus unders from Sandy, Swallow, Sauce, Fyfe, Pendles, Dusty & Taylor.

    How did everyone go?

    • SCaddict says:

      Anything over 2500 is a damn fine score. Think most coaches should be satisfied with anything over 2400 given all the outs this weekend and popular backup such as Honeychurch and Shenton starting with vests.

      Plenty of good coaches were sub 2400 this week for one reason or another. I finished on 2450 after Pendles and the rest of his Pies spudded it up so very happy to bank that score and just move on to next round.

  43. John says:

    2424 – topped my league despite having pendles as captain. Pretty happy with that.

  44. OzSonic says:


    Hanley the big disappointment. A few under par but overall pretty pleased.

    I've got the Suckling Pig and Jaensch still in my back half and plan to amend that when the time is right. Bartel and Mitchell the obvious candidates. Don't liek planning to far ahead though. Injuries have a way of breaking up my plans so I don't 😛

  45. SCaddict says:

    Very keen to see how Crouching went after reading that teaser tweet about his mystery trades.

    Hopefully the slipper spoke wisely! 🙂

  46. Caz says:

    2404 with 2 players short, won all my games so very happy.

  47. Cam_H says:

    Well done to 2,400+ scorers.

    Sadly for me my team's been pummelled by injury week after week. Maybe next year …

  48. Chippa888 says:

    Wingard = Stain in my underpants again. P**s off my team welcome.

  49. john snow says:

    was a great feeling to be wingard free this weekend

  50. Jambo says:

    Scored 2150 without 2 players and with an underperforming James Bartel. I was not expecting much but still not bad methinks.
