TG Footy Tracgic - Dexter

Well; if you traded in Seedsman, all isn’t lost – he did score a 93 – although my “curse” seems to be in full swing. Surely, this weeks’ candidate has a better run. For all those Port Adelaide fans and coaches with Travis Boak in their sides – I apologise in advance.

Travis Boak seems to be doing alright.

For those who started with the Port captain; I’ll bet you considered booting him before he lost a chunk of cash – but for those that kept faith – he’s surely repaid that faith shown.

After a 68 and 82 in the opening two rounds, he’s come out with 106, 147 and 124, (a 3 round average of 124) to average 105.4 for the season. Considering he started at $568k (priced to average 106), he’s dropped 10k, and slightly better value with an achievable break-even of 64. If he hits his projected of 100; he will rise to 575k. Now is the time to jump.

For those looking to do their first midfield upgrade – Boak is surely value.

Sitting in only 4.4% of teams; you could do worse than bring Boak in – considering he has already had 2 bad games – the odds of him having many more are low. For the last 2 years; Boak has averaged less in the first 8 rounds than the last 15 rounds.

In the last two completed seasons Boak has amassed 4459 Supercoach points, at an average of 106.2 from 42 games – with 23 100+ scores and only 9 scores below 85. Not bad odds I say.

Look at these numbers for reference (Thanks Old Ocker!)


Going by the previous two seasons, (Hinkley era), he has averaged 4.5 sub 85 scores – he’s already had 2. If he continues along this vein, he’s due for 2-3 more sub 85 scores.

Obviously, this is all hypothetical – but the best way to project a result is to look to the past; and going by this – Boak is expected to hit the ton 9-11 more times and average approx. 106-110 from here on out.

Surely, those numbers are good enough for an M7-8 player – as I expect Boak to be.

The best part about Boak; his tasty round 13 bye situation helps us immensely.

We can’t forget his run until the bye: West Coast (H), Brisbane (A), Richmond (H), Melbourne (Darwin), Western Bulldogs (H), Geelong (H), Carlton (A). I don’t know about you, but that run alone has me seriously contemplating dropping Boak into my side; not to mention, I’d expect PA to win most (if not, all) of these games.

In the last 2 years; Boak has averaged 108.8 in wins (high of 172, low of 58) and 102 in losses (high of 162, low of 65).

Let’s look at his numbers:


Looking over his past two completed seasons, we see his numbers stay relatively steady. Similar disposal numbers, marks, tackles and contested possessions. Even his clanger numbers are similar. It wouldn’t be a stretch to say Travis Boak is a pretty safe bet to get you a 105-110 average from here out.

For me; I’m seriously considering him as my M7-8 finisher – I’m looking to upgrade Salem by swinging Lambert forward and dropping Boak into the guts.

What are you doing this week? To trade or not to trade, that is the question.

Over to you Community… is Travis Boak for you? We’d love to hear your thoughts.


Liam · 06/05/2015 at 16:23

Great stuff Dex

    You've been Dexed · 06/05/2015 at 21:19

    Poor Trav he has just got the “KISS OF DEX” or the “DEX NAIL” 🙂

      judd0 · 06/05/2015 at 23:03

      I was considering bringing Boak in this week.
      But not now that Dex has written about him, his words are cursed and his knowledge is great.

Patch · 06/05/2015 at 16:25

Love it, Dex! Seriously considering changing my Salem-Goddard to a Salem-Boak. I doubt I will, but only because I have a very weak forward line. Dilemmas, dilemmas.

Tom · 06/05/2015 at 16:30

I believe Barlow is better value if your looking to upgrade your midfield

    Kev · 06/05/2015 at 22:04

    Agree, Tom. Fyfe is getting all the attention and Barlow/Mundy/Neale are waltzing around doing as they please

      Tigertanic · 07/05/2015 at 20:10

      uh..JPK anyone?? Priced at 547k….could even wait one more week with a be of 104

    youngy55 · 07/05/2015 at 21:01

    Feel like there are better options than Barlow out there.

    Such as JPK, Goddard or if your looking for a player of the same price possibly Parker?

Aaron · 06/05/2015 at 16:34

First mid upgrade Rich to Boak!

dognino · 06/05/2015 at 16:36

Love the research you put in mate, but I use these articles as guides of who not to trade in. Boak to either injure himself or average 60's now

    Dee · 06/05/2015 at 20:59


Avzmo · 06/05/2015 at 16:40

Since you've plugged Boak, I'll trade in JPK this week.

Jason WindowLicker · 06/05/2015 at 16:43

Can’t handle the tag and puts up too many stinker scores. Better off going with JPK at this price, better average and more consistent

    Ethan · 06/05/2015 at 18:29

    but who gets more attention gray or boak

      Jason WindowLicker · 07/05/2015 at 07:31


@Seekersupacoach · 06/05/2015 at 16:45

I have $372K in the bank and 24 trades left (thanks to injuries and downgrades). I am in two minds:

1) a single trade NVB to Pendlebury leaving 23 trades but only $22k in the bank (but have most of the cash cow rookies)

2) two trades, NVB & Newnes to two of either H Taylor, J Pittard or R Murphy (with Adam Saad swingset to MIDS) leaving 22 trades and btw 77k – 111.8k in the bank.

First option leaves little in the bank but brings in a dependable MID keeper, second one brings in two likely keepers and leaves money in the bank, but defence is still off.

Further 'complication' is that I have held onto Ollie Wines who should be back in 1-2 weeks.

I'd love some advice

    @Rem_Wah · 06/05/2015 at 16:57

    NVB to Pendles

    @KingWinter7 · 06/05/2015 at 17:55

    1st option

    Trab Pukcip · 06/05/2015 at 21:46

    Really? Surely you don’t need to be told which of the above trades is the better option mate?? It’s pretty clear!

      @Seekersupacoach · 06/05/2015 at 22:44

      Trab it's my first year taking SuperCoach seriously so it might be clear to you but I'd like to be told what and why so I can learn…

        judd0 · 06/05/2015 at 23:06

        Go the first trade.
        Pendles is a must have this year again, the other reason being you do not want to waste any more trades.
        You've already used quite a few so stick with the single trade this week.

          @Seekersupacoach · 07/05/2015 at 13:08

          Much appreciated

            WombatsFC · 07/05/2015 at 13:19

            Is NVB your only trade out option?
            If NVB is currently on your bench who will you bench to put Pendle onfield?
            If you'll be benching an under performing midpricer like judd or Griffen you could be better off to replace one of them with Pendle and hold on to some cash or upgrade a 2nd midpricer to a gun premium.
            It's OK to trade every week if you think that you need to, just make sure you bring in reliable level headed premiums and not other midpricers

@Rem_Wah · 06/05/2015 at 16:47

What's Priddis' break-even this week?
Thinking that, if it is still high, I'll give Griffen another week to prove himself since Priddis may lose more cash… Otherwise, if Grifffen struggles again, Priddis looks a good in trade next week. Thoughts?

    jake · 06/05/2015 at 17:04

    sounds pretty good, have you considered selwood aswell

      @Rem_Wah · 06/05/2015 at 17:06

      Selwood is still up around 600k – probably too expensive just at the moment.

    Wattsieesq · 06/05/2015 at 17:42

    Priddis is at 110. There won't me much of a shift in his price barring injury.

    Dustbin Feltchers · 06/05/2015 at 19:50

    if you google priddis break even, a footy stats website will be available…u can check out all the break evens..welcome

      @Rem_Wah · 06/05/2015 at 21:51

      Thanks for the help – will be holding Griff for at least another week

    Tigertanic · 07/05/2015 at 20:11

    footywire has all the weekly BEs and projected prices for the next 3 weeks

I N Pieman · 06/05/2015 at 16:50

The curse continues Dex. Seedsman is out with a glute problem. Can you do lachie Neale next week please. People keep knocking me over in leagues when he goes big.

    medadsson · 06/05/2015 at 21:38

    That's strange, I keep losing when he goes low 🙂

    General Soreness · 07/05/2015 at 10:26

    Stay away from Lachie Neale

jake · 06/05/2015 at 16:54

should i trade salem for goddard or franklin?

    @KingWinter7 · 06/05/2015 at 17:56


    Bye Week · 06/05/2015 at 19:41


    judd0 · 06/05/2015 at 23:07

    Goddard, he is probably the cheapest we will get him all season right now.

Frosty · 06/05/2015 at 16:57

Would love people’s thoughts on Mundy. Is this his year

    Enrage! · 06/05/2015 at 17:02

    Great pick! I’d get him but I’d be to Freo heavy with Fyfe and Neale already.

    youngy55 · 07/05/2015 at 21:07

    I feel like he is to much now and your would be buying him at a peak, but trust your gut!, if you like him go for him.

    I was tossing and turning on starting Mundy but went with Griffen cause I thought Griffen was to big of a risk not to go in with, kicking my self now though.

r2d2 · 06/05/2015 at 16:57

Ebert presents better value I think or even wines when he back

Emma · 06/05/2015 at 16:59

Haha I started looking at salem to boak on monday due to his great run of games pre bye and round 13 bye. My only concern is are we paying to much for him when we could get priddis for 25K cheaper? Also I had a look at the pre season article about boak on this site and the main concern about him was he did not score as well against the weaker teams.

So the question I have is who do we consider to be a top 8-10 mid by end of year boak or priddis?

    Kev · 06/05/2015 at 22:12

    Good research, Emma. I agree with you. Those yearly averages don't excite me as a mid keeper

    judd0 · 06/05/2015 at 23:08

    Priddis came home very strong last year, I expect him to do the same and will be getting him in around the byes.

Nash · 06/05/2015 at 17:10

Salem to Godard
Salem to priddis
Salem to josh Kennedy (Sydney)
Which one community?

    Traderlyf · 06/05/2015 at 17:19

    id go salem to goddard because goddards bottomed out and jpk still has a fairly high BE. Havnt really looked at priddis.

      Wattsieesq · 06/05/2015 at 17:44

      JPK BE is only 105. Priddis is 110. I'd trade in where you need the most improvement.

    Avzmo · 06/05/2015 at 17:42

    If your set on one of these three, Priddis is generally going to be the most reliable, JPK is genearlly reliable but has had some pretty average scores this year and Hannebury seems to be taking them from him.

    To be honest, I'm not looking to have any of these guys in my team at year end.

    Just so you know, this is how I wanna look at year end.

    Fyfe, Pendles, Lewis, Beams, Ablett, Sloane, Selwood, Rockliff – Should all be Top 10~ midfielders this year.

      DPT · 06/05/2015 at 19:53

      Top 10 by average or total score?
      If you are going by average, Sidebottom is currently the highest, but he has only played 1 game. Rocky & Ablett have missed too many games to be Top 10 by total score.
      Or are you going by the Top 10 scorers post bye rounds?
      The mids to target are the ones likely to play every game from here on end.

    Bye Week · 06/05/2015 at 19:42


    youngy55 · 07/05/2015 at 21:08


    But Trust your Gut

zeesus · 06/05/2015 at 17:22

NOOOOOO DEX! don't put your damn curse on one of my midfielders!

Alex · 06/05/2015 at 17:24

I want to hold salem because he has more left in him, or do I take the plunge and go to Goddard/Pendles/JPK, or do I get rid of griffin instead.

    Avzmo · 06/05/2015 at 17:40

    Salem has a week left at his current output. Although the three you have named have relatively low breakevens, id say wait a week.

      Alex · 06/05/2015 at 17:46

      Do u think griffen to any of the 3 would be good

    @KingWinter7 · 06/05/2015 at 17:57

    Salem to Pendles this week

    youngy55 · 07/05/2015 at 21:09

    Personally hold on Griffen

liam · 06/05/2015 at 17:27

Love it Dex
Just want to hear your thoughts on these trades
Newnes to Mckenzie
Heeney to priddis

    Sarah · 06/05/2015 at 20:29

    love the trades

      Kev · 06/05/2015 at 22:14

      Love the trades too but to early on McK. As above Priddis has a b/e of 110 this week so you could hold off till next round

Jess · 06/05/2015 at 17:32

Is Beams a confirmed out? Do we know yet?

r2d2 · 06/05/2015 at 17:35

Hopefully this curse don’t strike Travis Dex !

Avzmo · 06/05/2015 at 17:39

I'm thinking Griffin out this week, to either Pendles at around $630k, Hannebury at around $590k, or JPK at around $540k. Who do people believe is the best option.

I can afford all, and potentially all will be top 10 midfielders this year, Pendles is safest but most costly, and it seems the cheaper they are the more risk involved as they could finish lower in the top midfielder stakes.

Love to hear the community's opinion of who to pick up this week!!!

    I N Pieman · 06/05/2015 at 18:09

    With Gary & Rocky not able to provide captain output at the moment I think Pendles is a must. When possible Pendles into Fyfe is the best combo for captain. Having said that Hannebury is in ominous form & JPK under 550 doesn't come round often.

    Phil · 06/05/2015 at 19:00

    I'd pay an extra 100k to get Pendles over the other two, 40k is a bargain!

    youngy55 · 07/05/2015 at 21:14

    Tough I like em all Hannebury if your feeling like your team needs a POD, Pendlebury if you want consistency and JPK if your feeling like you need the cash in other lines,

    Personally I would choose Pendles

    But Trust your Gut

Wattsieesq · 06/05/2015 at 17:46

Good stuff Dex. He'll be a solid pick but a pass for me at the moment.

    youngy55 · 07/05/2015 at 21:15

    In the same Boat

General Soreness · 06/05/2015 at 17:46

He was only in 4.4% lets watch that jump, brilliant Dex, the guy was not even a blip on my radar.

General Soreness · 06/05/2015 at 17:49

I also think we should start referring to your Kiss of Death as "The Dex Hex"

    I N Pieman · 06/05/2015 at 17:59

    Hope he does Bombers players for the rest of the season General. If ASADA doesn't get you Dex will!

mac truk · 06/05/2015 at 17:50

Slight doubt about boak is his scores this year have come with wines out. When wines comes back in does he take some ball from boak?

Luviboy1 · 06/05/2015 at 17:57

Another great article Dex. Did not even give Boak the slightest thought!

James · 06/05/2015 at 18:12

Hey Community,

What are your thoughts on Michael Barlow? Do you think he can average 110 from here on out or has Neale taken that scoring potential away?


    SCaddict · 06/05/2015 at 18:57

    Too early to say. We really need to see much more out of Barlow including how many centre bounces he attends in the next few games before I'd recommend folks jumping on.

    Also still has a highish BE of 135 this week so this wouldn't be the round to bring him in anyway.

    youngy55 · 07/05/2015 at 21:17

    Wouldn't even consider Barlow as a option

Scott · 06/05/2015 at 18:42

Hey Dex I love Boak, but Hannebery is only $30,000 more but but averaging 20 more points. Wouldn't we trade in Hannebery now before he goes over $600k? Also I would be interested on your thoughts on Mundy, he's playing pretty consistent footy at the moment. This week I'm trading out Rich I think he's reached his max and I'm trading in Hannebery.

    SCaddict · 06/05/2015 at 19:03

    Yes Hanners is playing off the charts right now. The only concern is that in the past he often has these purple patches of 7 or 8 brilliant games and then drops off.

    Hopefully 2015 proves different being a Swans supporter and all but I'm going to go the safer and cheaper JPK option instead even though I admit Hanners is darn difficult to resist right now.

      Scott · 06/05/2015 at 19:53

      Fair enough SCaddict, I already have JPK, but was looking closely at Mundy who's never really been on my radar before.

Booma · 06/05/2015 at 19:01

Thoughts on Sam Mitchell & Scott Thompson… ST 3ga is sitting around 134.

@cafosk · 06/05/2015 at 19:08

If Rockliff/Beams are out this week, surely that warrants holding onto Rich for another week at least. Especially those with(out) Lewis/Hodge.

    Beady Eye · 06/05/2015 at 19:14

    If Rockliff and Beams (not forgetting Hanley also) are out, who else is getting tagged this week besides Rich?

    Could be proven wrong, but I wouldn’t hold my breath expecting an inflated score from him.

      TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2015 at 19:55

      Zorko the magnificient? LOL

      @cafosk · 06/05/2015 at 20:42

      Yeh, thats a fair point.
      It was more of a point to those trading him out for the sake of an upgrade, when he'd more than likely pull a premium score than a shit one.

      Knowing our luck, ACL in the first minute…..

    @TheNoLanguage · 06/05/2015 at 23:44

    Beams out?

Derek · 06/05/2015 at 19:13

There is strong mail that Delidio will play as sub this weekend. That is going to make him very cheap in a few weeks. I think Richmond have round 11 bye.

    youngy55 · 07/05/2015 at 21:18

    Loving your thinking!

AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 06/05/2015 at 19:50

Wondering whats going to happen to Bennell? Wondering if I should dump him???


    BT · 07/05/2015 at 00:46

    yeah solid thinking, maybe a noble prize for common sense should be coming your way

      BT · 07/05/2015 at 00:49

      being serious, theres no chance gold coast will keep their 2nd best and most talented player (behind gaz), for more than 1 week and straight back in the team next week, especially given their current injury list. Just rocket making a statement. Half the team was drinking but with only 25 available for selection, they literally can't suspend everyone.

TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2015 at 19:51

Here is the million dollar/double barreled question this week. Trade Griffin for Pendlebury and then put the V on him Friday night?

Any views appreciated.

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 06/05/2015 at 19:57

    I'm Trading Rich to Pendels and putting th V on Pendels and then the C on Fyfe

      AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 06/05/2015 at 19:57

      But it doesnt sound good for Bennell and I'm wondering if I should trade Bennell instead of Rich?

      TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2015 at 20:08

      I am not sure how long Gold Coast have banned Bennell for boozing, but I think it will be one week.

      He will have a rest and a bit of time to think about his dumb arse choice and be named the following week. You can use him as an emergency loophole perhaps. Just put him on the bench.

      I would trade out Rich for Pendles and whack the big V on him!


        AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 06/05/2015 at 20:17

        Ok Thanks Mate


Jono · 06/05/2015 at 19:58

Great article Dex. There goes my POD in Boak!

Community! Salem to Goddard or Heppel?


    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 06/05/2015 at 20:02

    Thats tough but I would think Goddard just because of the DPP

      Jono · 06/05/2015 at 20:32

      Thanks guys! I’m still split. DPP is positive with Goddard

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2015 at 20:09


    @randomcliche · 06/05/2015 at 22:48

    You'll still have POD on me. Going Priddis and JPK. Cheaper, higher ceiling & brownlow in pocket.

    judd0 · 06/05/2015 at 23:13

    Reason being I believe he will be a top 6 FWD this year but I do not believe Heppel will be a top 8 MID

    youngy55 · 07/05/2015 at 21:22

    Goddard, But if you feel like Heppel is better Go for it, Trust your Gut

sjp · 06/05/2015 at 20:03

Hello community, does anyone know when I should pick up Rockliff at his cheapest and what roughly will he drop too? Will he drop to around 400/450k. If so I could do a trade eg: cey-rocky Or. Cripps-rock

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2015 at 20:18


    That question has a lot of ifs.

    Rockliff will drop in price for the next 2 (maybe 3 games) until he gets his B/E back under control

    Barring, any further injury complications, I doubt Rockliff will fall much below 480K. Once he gets around the $500K mark, you need to look at getting back into your side.


Jordan · 06/05/2015 at 20:08

Has anyone noticed Mitch Golby? 314,000 with an average of 90. I need to get rid of Hodge so do I get Golby to make some cash or a premium defender?

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2015 at 20:22

    Good pick up Jordan.

    Mitch Golby can play.

    He should get plenty of the footy with half the Brizzie midfield out.

    He is on the "bubble" this week albeit from a higher base.


tom · 06/05/2015 at 20:11

Trade McIntosh to Enright/Birchall or just hold and wait??

    Jonesy · 06/05/2015 at 20:22

    Still has 1 or 2 more weeks of making cash, hold for now

    Jordan · 06/05/2015 at 20:23

    I'd say that you can still make money off him for two more weeks. Hold

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2015 at 20:35

    Sit tight for another week on K Mac! His break even is only 35.

    If he scores his average of 73 SC points against North (Very likely) you will pick up another 25K without having used a trade.

    If he is named a sub, then either put him on the bench or get rid of him for Birchall. (Enright locked out)

    Anything else is up to the Supercoach gods!


      tom · 06/05/2015 at 20:46

      cheers TopHawk,

      what do you mean by "Enright locked out"?

        TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2015 at 21:00

        Corey Enright played the night before. (Friday night against the pies)

        So you cannot pick him anymore. He will be locked out until the start of the next round.


          tom · 06/05/2015 at 21:02

          oh right.

          who do you think is the better option out of the two?

          maybe even Harry Taylor?

            Kev · 06/05/2015 at 22:25

            Taylor has played the extra man in defence past 2 weeks and is picking up intercept marks at will. Won't crack the 3 figures when he is held accountable

    @randomcliche · 06/05/2015 at 22:52

    Depends if you think Enright/Taylor et al will make more $. There are some v.low BEs there, but also plenty of risk for mine.

Joey Joe Joe · 06/05/2015 at 20:24

Is there any reason why every man and his dog isn't jumping on to Shiel this week? Is still dirt cheap at $530k due to one poor round, but last chance to grab him before he skyrockets. 4 out of 5 big games can't be a blip…

Griffen cannot be a top 10 Mid from his putrid performances so far this year. See you later. Welcome Dylan.

    Tyler · 06/05/2015 at 20:41

    I already have him and I'm just waiting for him to soar in price, he could even end up close to top 10 mid this year I reckon

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2015 at 21:19


    Have been looking at Dylan Shiel since round 1.

    I am gonna sleep on Griffen to Pendlebury or Shiel.

    Tough call!


    Rick Grimes · 07/05/2015 at 06:47

    Think I’ll go Ward instead.

Mac · 06/05/2015 at 20:32

Thoughts on Goodes to McKenzie and Kelly to Rance, Taylor, Houli, McDonald or anyone else around that price range

    Tyler · 06/05/2015 at 20:40

    If it prevents a donut in defence then go for it. If you don't do this trade and you still have 6 playing defenders though hold off until next week

AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 06/05/2015 at 20:44

Treloar or Rich for Pendels??? Kind of want to keep Treloar but he's kind of went down the last few weeks?

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2015 at 21:32

    You have both Treloar, Bennell and Rich?

    Keep Treloar, and Bennell. Rich to Pendles.

      AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 06/05/2015 at 21:56

      Ok Thanks Mate!!!!! I have Sloane and Lewis as well!

        TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2015 at 22:07


        You are just gonna have to pray into the night to sort that one out.!

Danny · 06/05/2015 at 20:55

Hey community,
trading KK and Salem out. Get Goddard for my FWD line or JPK for mids. (clearly I can use some dpp) ?

joey · 06/05/2015 at 21:15

Salem + Newton out for Josh Glenn (will be in suns best for the rest of year) + JPK, Goddard or Priddis?

    Tyler · 06/05/2015 at 21:32

    I'm definitely not confident Glenn is in the best 22 for the rest of the year. Remember how many players are out. Gaz, Malcheski, O'meara, Swallow and just to name a couple. But answering your question, I would go for Priddis. Last year he started out average, then really turned it up after the byes. Considering he was over 600k at the start of the year I would say he is the biggest bargain right now

      jacob · 07/05/2015 at 00:00

      Glenn will surely get at least 5 or six games while all those guys are out. That’s all you need as a rookie. Hell work harder than a lot of those lazy gold coasters as a mature age player whos done it tough. Eade will reward that effort as well.

        Tyler · 07/05/2015 at 08:00

        Yeah you would think so

          joey · 07/05/2015 at 11:01

          Is it too early to be culling on Newton though?

Hazey · 06/05/2015 at 21:31

Poor old James Kelly and his boys have gtg, but now one is tickling my fancy.

Seedsman? But has a dodgy butt muscle?


    Derek · 06/05/2015 at 23:20

    Simpson is a standout

    jacob · 07/05/2015 at 00:01

    Wait a week or two for B Smith.

Nash · 06/05/2015 at 21:44

Salem to premo
Salem to glen
Have 460,000 in the bank
If I go Salem to premo then if I want to downgrade I will have to go a Vandenberg or miller as I don't have many swing players. One of those guys.

    Kev · 06/05/2015 at 22:31

    Plenty of cash there Nash. Grab a premo mate

You BloodyRippa · 06/05/2015 at 21:48

Looking for downgrade targets………McInnes for WCE is a fwd rookie on the bubble this week.
Any opinions on his JS??
Thinking of bringing him in for Salem to build the warchest.

    Kev · 06/05/2015 at 22:35

    Not a lot of options for forward rookies right now YBR. Salem is not losing you money so hold mate. Wraps on Langford from Essendon preseason, hopefully he is named again this week so we can have another look

    Derek · 06/05/2015 at 23:19

    I think there will be better downgrade option in mid and Def coming up. Might have to downgrade there and upgrade in the fwds

AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 06/05/2015 at 22:07

Wondering if I should trade out Newnes for Golby to make some cash?


    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2015 at 22:30

    Why would you consider to do that?

    You have enough challenges in the midfield!


      AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 06/05/2015 at 22:58

      My team looks like this right now

      Def….R. Murphy, Oxley, Saad, Henderson, Hunt, McIntosh ( Newnes, J. Tippett)

      Mid….Fyfe, Pendels, Gray, Swan, Treloar, Vandenburg, Miller, Heenney ( Lewis, Sloane, Bennell)

      Fwd…Martin, Hogan, Tarrant, Membrey, clark, Krak (Lamb, Lambert)

      Just curious what you think?

        AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 06/05/2015 at 22:59

        If it's viable or not? Or logical?

          AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 06/05/2015 at 23:05

          Oh and Goldstein , Maric (Gorringe) are my rucks

          Traderlyf · 06/05/2015 at 23:06

          pretty sure hendersons injured so would worry bout him

          TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2015 at 23:08

          Its viable if you move to australiaaaa.

          So you can catch up with Jock, Crouching and Higgo.

          Good luck Magpie USA!

            AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 06/05/2015 at 23:19

            LOL…thanks! I'm learning cut me a break?

              AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 06/05/2015 at 23:19

              I use to live in OZ

Traderlyf · 06/05/2015 at 22:40

Option 1-
Newnes -> Mckenzie
Salem -> S Martin via TBC
220k warchest

Option 2 –
Salem -> Glenn/Mckenzie via Krak
Sheed -> Pendles
70k warchest

Option 3 –
Salem -> Goddard
8k warchest

Option 4 –
TBC -> S Martin
20k warchest

    Juzzy · 06/05/2015 at 23:28

    Option 2 or 3 for mine Mate.
    Pendles and Goddard are proven.
    3 might be the safest option if you have Heeney, Lewis, Sloane etc..

      Traderlyf · 07/05/2015 at 00:05

      i have sloane and lewis but thats why i wanted pendles… hmm

        Juzzy · 07/05/2015 at 00:13

        Option 2 it is then.
        Makes sense.

doge · 06/05/2015 at 22:51

ssshhhhh, boak’s my POD!

Donavan · 06/05/2015 at 23:07

Torn this week.

My team is –
Def – Shaw / Simpson / Saad / Ibbotson / McIntosh / Newnes / Oxley / Hamling
Mids – Fyfe / Shiel / Sloane / Priddis / Eliis-Yolmen / Griffen / Vandenberg / Cripps / Lewis / Miller / Heeney
Rucks – Goldstein / Maric / Cox
Fwd – Franklin / Gray / Hogan / Salem / Tarrant / Krakouer / Lonie / Clark

I have $309k in the warchest.

Considering the following trades-

Option A –
OUT – Griffin & Salem
IN – Kennedy (Syd) & Goddard

Option B –
OUT – Griffin
IN – Pendlebury

All of Pendlebury, Kennedy & Goddard are in my envisaged end team.

Thoughts please.

    Traderlyf · 06/05/2015 at 23:13

    go option A just because goddard is at his lowest price and if you want him at the end of the year nows the time to get him

      my sc team name is sammy primo's · 06/05/2015 at 23:41

      The question you need to ask yourself was griffen a season keeper when you picked him in your starting side if he was then dont trade him. Hold as he will come good have faith y waste a trade on a fallen primo , on the other hand salem was only ever a cash cow and pendles is a must he has fallen this week to a point that he wont be getting any cheaper untill after the bye period making him your last upgrade with a break even of 103 he will hit and his prices will rise this week looking at your team i see.plenty of cash generation in your team so i advice you trade salem up to goddard as he will only be going up from this week and thats it no more trades next would be a down grade upgrade week to jpk as your next target hope this helps

        Donavan · 07/05/2015 at 08:20

        Thanks Sammy Premo's,

        Griffen was a spec inclusion in my round 1 team, in other words I thoughts there was a chance he perform like a premo and stay in the team, but equally would perform at about his price point and require upgrading.

        I have heaps of cows in the paddock, all of whom (except maybe Heeney) will be a few weeks.

        I think I am going option A, as I suspect Goddard & Kennedy are at near there cheapest, hoping that Pendlebury will be at around the same price in 2-3 weeks, when my next batch of cows are ready for market.

    my sc team name is sammy primo's · 06/05/2015 at 23:43

    Liam · 07/05/2015 at 11:01

    option A if Griffin is your only problem otherwise stick fat.

Derek · 06/05/2015 at 23:38

I was planning to upgrade TBC @ R2 to a keeper. I also have Goldy.

I just don’t know who to go to. Grundy, Bilcavs etc are traps, I want a proven lone wolf tried and tested.

Mummy, Sauce, Sandilands, maric?

Except of Mummy they are all still free falling in price, so no rush to get them in, can wait a week or two.

Who to get?

    Juzzy · 06/05/2015 at 23:51

    Toss the coin between Mummy and Sauce. Love Sandi but you know he will miss a few closer to finals time.

      Traderlyf · 06/05/2015 at 23:57

      wait til jacobs hits bottom price, im pretty sure his BE is around 160 atm

Juzzy · 06/05/2015 at 23:45

Looks like keeping Griffen and Newnes will be a “shark move” this week.
I am. Even though he isn’t scoring great I actually like the way Newnes is playing. I think he can average 80ish until the byes.
And Griffen … even though he has been a bit worse than ordinary, I can’t help thinking about a couple of years back. He started ok and then came home like a rampaging bull.

Danny · 07/05/2015 at 06:14

Is 18-20 enough trades to have left heading into the byes?

    Ethan · 07/05/2015 at 09:44

    you should optimize your trades during the byes so your finals trades may be scarce. You just have to make your trades count from now

    Avzmo · 07/05/2015 at 10:30

    I'd suggest you would still want at least 12 trades after the byes, a rough strategy would be, 10 trades prior to byes, 10 trades at the byes (at which stage your final team should be taking shape) then 10 trades for the rest of the season of which, maybe only 5 should be used to toy with the team, the other 5 should be for injuries.

T.J.M · 07/05/2015 at 07:31

Thoughts community

Shaw, Simpson, Kelly, Newnes, Saad, Oxley, Goodes, McIntosh
Fyfe, Selwood, JPK, Beams, Parker, Cripps, CEY, Vandenberg, Miller, Steele, Krak
Goldstein, Maric, Read
Gray, Martin, Swan, Salem, Hogan, Clark, Tarrent, Lonie

$90,000 in the bank.

Was thinking going Goodes to McKenzie which would leave me $200,000. I'm not sure what to do with Kelly then, keep him on the bench? Are there any other trades I should be looking at this week?

    Sarah · 07/05/2015 at 08:42

    I'm just benching Kelly and playing McIntosh on the field for the time being. I can't see any other must have defenders at this stage and I have other upgrade trades I want to do this week. I think by the time I get to having a trade to use on Kelly, he'll be just about ready to come back and apart from his 35 game (awful, by the way), he's been scoring ok.

Cyril is Delicious · 07/05/2015 at 08:25

Wasn’t going to trade this week but with 353k in the war chest, I feel like I should grab Floggard for Salem?

    Sarah · 07/05/2015 at 08:42

    I'm doing that trade. If you see Goddard in your end team, you've got to grab him while he's cheap.

Chicken Dinner · 07/05/2015 at 08:44

Already had him, hope he doesn't go down now!

T.J.M · 07/05/2015 at 17:16

Thoughts on Goodes to McKenzie and then Salem to Glen via dpp?

    BT · 07/05/2015 at 20:39

    doesn't make sense, can easily do those two trades next week. Wait unless their on the bubble unless your doing 1 upgrade, 1 downgrade. If goodes isn't a sub, can score well and potentially not go down alot.

      BT · 07/05/2015 at 20:39

      also, don't get rid of mid – fwd dpp

    Tyler · 08/05/2015 at 06:09

    Do the Goodes to Mckenzie trade because Goodes will lose you cash otherwise

Matt · 08/05/2015 at 11:44

Would like to know where everyone is at with trades.. Want to make trades but concerned using trades.. So with none this week sit at 25 this the norm..
Thinking of Salem to Bont as my only trade this…
Haven't upgraded at all yet this season . That would be the first if I went ahead..
Thoughts community.

Have about 330k in bank before the trade..

Matt · 08/05/2015 at 11:52

Goddard or bontempelli????
