Howdy folks and welcome to our Round 6 Supercoach Scouting Report! It was another mixed bag in Supercoach for Round 5, with a raft of players punching below their normal weight, but we did have some quality scores from a host of players also.

For once I finally managed to get my knock my Captain pick out of the park (thankyou Scott Pendlebury!) and I hope all of you did also!

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.

captainCaptain Pick(s): Scott Pendlebury belted out a terrific score last week, and should definitely be given consideration again because of that. Swan has been a bit more subdued over the past fortnight, but he’s Dane Swan and if he gets rolling then there’s no end to what he could score. For Geelong, Joel Selwood has been as cold as ice as of late, but he’s bound to thaw out sooner or later. If you feel really confident in your Captain selection (think Nat Fyfe) then a VC on Jelwood is an option as well. He could easily belt out a score of 140+ here.

captainCaptain Pick(s): We’ve seen Todd Goldstein belt out some big scores this year (one of the few rucks to be able to do it consistently too) and that score of 166 he had last time these teams faced would be sticking out like crazy for a number of Goldstein owners. Houli will certainly tempt some of his owners with the scores he’s put out in recent weeks, I’d probably stay away from that option, but you could still take a reasonable risk with the VC on him if you feel your C pick is solid.

captainCaptain Pick(s): The Bulldogs have been on fire this year, with several guys capable of putting up great scores. You just get the feeling here this could be the game where a Stringer/Bontempelli/Dahlhaus type busts out a 130+ score for the day. Bont owners, you could do worse than picking him this week. For the Saints, David Armitage has been the only one who looks to be worth giving any consideration to.

captainCaptain Pick(s): The Hawks will be without Lewis and Hodge this week, with Lewis racking up so many possessions in the middle for the Hawks I’d expect someone there will need to step up. Kennedy kicked a bag of goals on GWS last week, so you might look for Roughead to do the same? For GWS we’ve seen Dylan Shiel pump out some big scores, but if I had to put money on it, I wouldn’t expect to see one from him this week.

captainCaptain Pick(s): After losing Swallow and Malckeski last week, the Suns now find themselves without Jack Martin, Steven May, Harley Bennell, Brandon Matera and Trent McKenzie. Prestia has always scored well against the Crows, and I suspect that the twin talls of Charlie Dixon and Tom J. Lynch will give the Crows defence some trouble again and likewise for the Crows, Taylor Walker could give the undermanned Suns some issues, he kicked 5 goals last time these teams met. Rory Sloane needs to bust out a big game after struggling over his last 2, but the player who looks to have the biggest boom potential is Scott Thompson, who has been thriving so far this year.

Tom McDonald has been the best scorer for the Demons this year, when he’s scored above 100 it’s been at least 122 Supercoach Points, but for me personally, when I’m taking a flier on a VC pick, it’s for a big score, not the minimum I’d expect from my Captain.

coldBryce Gibbs struggled again in Round 5, producing a score of 34 Supercoach Points, which is his worst return in Supercoach since his rookie year in 2007, where he had scores of 28 Points against St Kilda in Round 6, 32 against Fremantle in Round 13 and 32 against Sydney in Round 15.

captainCaptain Pick(s): Probably the worst game you could think of to pick a Captain from this week, with both sides majorly struggling this year. Chris Judd has a massive career average against the Lions (though somewhat inflated due to that huge 232 point game), but even with that I wouldn’t feel comfortable picking him here. Likewise with Brisbane, apart from maybe taking a chance on Dayne Beams, I probably wouldn’t bother.

Key scores: Robbie Gray 139, Chris Masten 119, Brad Ebert/Ollie Wines 110, Jared Polec/Nic Naitanui 107

HotThings may be looking up for Robbie Gray now that the hardest part of Port’s schedule looks to be done. Many predicted doom and gloom for the early part of the year, but he’s managed to average 110.7 so far and only lost 30K on his initial starting price. He scored 134 against Adelaide last week and now has games against West Coast, Brisbane, Richmond and Melbourne over the next month.

coldHe’s only 2 games into the season, but Matthew Lobbe finds his average sitting at 52.0 Supercoach Points, almost half of the 100.7 he averaged for 2014.

captainCaptain Pick(s): Robbie Gray would be the best bet here. He was fantastic against Adelaide in Round 5, winning the Showdown Medal and scored 134 Supercoach Points. Not to be outdone, Travis Boak has shown some great form over the past fortnight. I’d also expect someone like Schulz and Ryder to continue to stretch their opponents defence again as well.

 Barron Von Crow’s Captain Selection:

If it’s not broke, don’t fix it, so I’ll be running with the Scott Pendlebury VC, Nat Fyfe C ticket again in Round 6.

And that’ll be it for me this week. Who are you guys looking at for your Captain picks this week? Let us know in the comments below and I hope you have a ripper of a week in Supercoach and score all sorts of crazy points!

Spot on picks Barron Von Crow.

jimmydowland · 07/05/2015 at 18:20

Got Goodes and minson

what should i do

    Crowmagnon · 07/05/2015 at 18:27

    I traded Minson to Blicavs last week. So far so good.

Crowmagnon · 07/05/2015 at 18:26

Great work Barron! Goldy to Fyfe for me. Considering trading NVB to Dalhaus this week. Good idea?

    Stickman · 07/05/2015 at 19:14

    It seems as if NVB has peaked and Dahlhaus is one the way up so I would say that its valid.

TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2015 at 18:32

CEY out with a hamstring injury. Anybody know how long he will be out for?

    Sam · 07/05/2015 at 18:36

    Says 2 weeks on Adelaide website

      TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2015 at 18:39

      Not ideal! Anyway thankfully Sloane and Beams have been named. CEY can be used as a loophole option.

      Cheers

        dognino · 07/05/2015 at 18:54

        No one I can loophole him with unfortunately . He plays before Heeney, Newton and krak who were on my bench. Just gotta take a chance on Heeney now and hopefully he doesn't put up another 7 lol

    @KingWinter7 · 07/05/2015 at 18:38

    Probably just the week

      BT · 07/05/2015 at 21:32

      atleast 2

r2d2 · 07/05/2015 at 18:32

Pendles and gray for me

r2d2 · 07/05/2015 at 18:33

CEY ……. Any word on how long this hammy be keep him out for ??seemed too play out showdown quite well …is it a training inj ?

    T.J.M · 07/05/2015 at 18:37

    2 weels supposedly

    BarronVonCrow · 07/05/2015 at 19:23

    David Noble said it's similar to what Kyle Cheney had who missed the 2 weeks.

Ryan · 07/05/2015 at 18:37

Really not sure what to do.

Is JPK or Goddard a MUST this week? Who more?

Is it time to offload Griffin or Rich?

I'm also thinking of trading in Glenn as well as I would have picked him next week.

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2015 at 18:46

    Its such a bloody tough call. I am soooo tempted to flick Griffin for Goddard it aint funny. The fact that Hawthorn are 2 premo onballers light this weekend, I would not be surprised if Griffen gets a bit of the pill. One more week Griffo! Last chance to shine.

    Goddard might find it tougher to get the footy against Freo in Perth.

    I reckon Rich is pretty close topping in price. He might be the bloke to trade out. And I am watching Glenn to see how he goes before he goes on the bubble.

    Hope it helps.

    Cheers

      SideBySidebottom · 07/05/2015 at 19:05

      Griffen will probably score well this week to raise your hopes and prolong the agony for you,

    BarronVonCrow · 07/05/2015 at 19:28

    Goddard has a BE of 69, so it's probably the best price you'll get him at for the next month or so.

      Derek · 07/05/2015 at 20:12

      He had a poor round 3 score, about 80 I think, so he only has to beat 80 to drop his BE for next week as well, we won’t get him any cheaper!

@KingWinter7 · 07/05/2015 at 18:40

Pendles or Goldy to Fyfe for me.
Probably going Pendles because i'm going to the game tomorrow night and love watching games when i have a potential captain playing…
Go the pies!

Tulendeena · 07/05/2015 at 18:41

Still keen on Sloane into Fyfe

    Ben Bretel · 07/05/2015 at 19:19

    nah

T.J.M · 07/05/2015 at 18:42

Is it a good idea to loophole Lonie? If he stuffs up I can sub Salem on. I'm not convinced on Salem versing the Swans

    Patch · 07/05/2015 at 18:56

    Yes absolutely, TJM. I'm not sold on any Melbourne rooks bar Hogan this week. #PanicRoomPreviews

      CJay · 07/05/2015 at 19:07

      Thanks for the spoiler alert Patch…lol

    BarronVonCrow · 07/05/2015 at 19:29

    I loop wherever I can. Has worked out quite well for me over the past couple of weeks.

CJay · 07/05/2015 at 18:51

Nice work Barron.
Might roll the dice on a Swan into Fyfe combo for captain this week myself.
Had to do the double take with CEY being out for two weeks??
Was getting very comfortable with his points and cash generation on field.

    BarronVonCrow · 07/05/2015 at 19:29

    I was getting comfortable too CJay!

Mac · 07/05/2015 at 18:51

Do we trade Ellis Yolmen?

    SideBySidebottom · 07/05/2015 at 19:10

    Not yet.

    Stickman · 07/05/2015 at 19:16

    I'm keeping him his breakeven is only 21 and should appreciate for a few more weeks.

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2015 at 19:24

    No way. Heaps more cash in this little cash cow! Super low be of 21. If his injury stretches more than 3 weeks, well then you may need to reassess.

    But i would keep in on the bench for an emergency/captain loophole play for the next 2 weeks.

    Cheers

    Derek · 07/05/2015 at 20:06

    Silly question

John · 07/05/2015 at 18:57

T.Miller or Heeney?

    Stickman · 07/05/2015 at 19:17

    I like Heeney because they are playing Melbourne but not sure Heeney's sub risk atm.

    BarronVonCrow · 07/05/2015 at 19:29

    I'm going for Miller this week. As Stickman said, Heeney has the sub risk.

Jim · 07/05/2015 at 18:58

should i get dangerfield in for sloane? thoughts

    Traderlyf · 07/05/2015 at 19:02

    no way

      Jim · 07/05/2015 at 19:05

      why not?

        SideBySidebottom · 07/05/2015 at 19:13

        Sideways waste of a trade,

        Jacob · 07/05/2015 at 19:20

        Sloane is a keeper!! He'll be a top 5 MID!

          SideBySidebottom · 07/05/2015 at 19:23

          But a rookie upgrade is the way to bring him in.

            Donavan · 07/05/2015 at 20:20

            The concern about Sloan is that he has scored so poorly once Thompson has rejoined the Crows. Thompson is playing Sloans role on the inside, and Sloan is running the wing, instead of the middle corridor of the ground.

            That siad Sloan received a heavy knock early in the game against the Bulldogs, and many Crows went missing that day.

          Derek · 07/05/2015 at 20:05

          I worry Sloane, has Thompson and Dangerfield in guts taking points, plus Crouch will be back very soon.

          Crows have easy draw next few games, but after that, tough

Stickman · 07/05/2015 at 19:12

Thinking of finally getting rid of Clem Smith. Thinking about trading him to Glenn, but dont want to trade into another dud who will get dropped.
What's everyone elses thoughts?
Cheers

    Crowmagnon · 07/05/2015 at 19:20

    I would try to wait a week to see if Glen at least plays 3 games.

      Stickman · 07/05/2015 at 19:32

      If not Glenn would Boekhorst be a valid option?

        Crowmagnon · 07/05/2015 at 19:44

        No. He is a spud. If you have cover, Hold Smith. If you need a warm body this week, Glen is your man. Only go a week early if you really need to. Anything could happen in a week.

          Stickman · 07/05/2015 at 20:03

          That is true, I just really want to get rid of him ASAP.

Rob · 07/05/2015 at 19:13

Is Andrew Swallow to Ebert a good trade?

    Traderlyf · 07/05/2015 at 19:18

    yep

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2015 at 19:21

    Yes. Ebert is super consistent. Have a look at Dylan Shiel as well. He ticks most boxes too.

    Cheers

      Rob · 07/05/2015 at 19:31

      The only thing with SHiel is his lowest score is against sydney and he got 50 or something around there. He scores his high scores against the bottom 6 teams

        TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2015 at 19:41

        Yes this is true in most part. Except for last week. GWS got absolutely smashed by the Eagles in Perth (No top 8 team either mind you) by 87 points and he still scored his average of 119 SC points. That performance has put him on my radar.

        Cheers

TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2015 at 19:19

How does the community rate Dylan Shiel?

Currently averages 120 SC points which included a 52 SC spud in one of his games. Is this bloke the real deal? (keeper)

Considering his high average and his current price at 537K and a b/e of 57 this week, he does seem to tick all the boxes.

The fact that GWS will play hawthorn with a depleted midfield (Lewis/Hodge out) this week, could this be the time to get this bloke in?

Any thoughts?

    Billy · 07/05/2015 at 19:41

    Rate him and think he will continue to score well but stick to proven ultra premos in the guts.
    The midfield is a not a place to try and take risks IMHO.
    Stick with Fyfe, pendles, sloane, jelwood, JPK, Lewis etc;

      TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2015 at 19:46

      Cheers mate.

      I have Fyfe, Pendles and Sloane already. Instead of putting in Shiel this week, who would you pick? Jelwood or JPK?

      Lewis not an option at this time, due to his suspension.

      Thanks

        Tyler · 07/05/2015 at 20:05

        I reckon personally Selwood is a better pick up. He is almost guaranteed top 10 if not for the whole year than at least from now on.

          r2d2 · 07/05/2015 at 23:05

          Wait a week or 2 on Selwood , will drop some more

    Donavan · 07/05/2015 at 20:17

    I rate Shiel highly, in his poor game (against Sydney) he received an amazingly tight tag.

    Shiel gets some ball himself, but is the GWS's #1 target for handball receives out of stoppages, and usually finds space & time to dispose well.

      TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2015 at 20:31

      Thanks mate.

      I have a gut feeling that Shiel is the guy that goes "Ultra premo" this year.

      You must always look forward. Yes, your midfield must have "past proven" performers, but also "future proven" performers.

      The "future proven" performers are harder to pick, but set you apart from the crowd that focuses only on "past proven" performers .

      Cheers

        Patch · 07/05/2015 at 21:30

        I love your gutsy thinking Tophawk. He's had an easy start to the year, and I reckon you've missed his biggest scores, but this kid can play. Supercoach is a game of the bold and he who blinks first loses. Back your gut on him. That's reason I've kept Wines (well that and trades). It may backfire, but if he dominates against the Hawks I would absolutely look at trying to get him into my side.

          r2d2 · 07/05/2015 at 23:07

          Spewing I traded out wines ,,,would I be mad to get him back after his 1st game back …. Maybe for a Cripps or rich

Jackson · 07/05/2015 at 19:33

Stefan Martin?
Now leuey is back does it mean stefan Martin will struggle to score good?

    BarronVonCrow · 07/05/2015 at 19:43

    I suspect Leuy will be spending plenty of time forward. They're lacking height up there.

    Donavan · 07/05/2015 at 20:13

    No, Martin is by far the #1 ruck, Luey will play forward 80% of the time.

Ben Bretel · 07/05/2015 at 19:34

boys
option 1
mgrath to kennedy gives me krack on bench in forward line dont have bench cover in fwd
option 2
yolmen to kennedy
and hogan to goddard

    Donavan · 07/05/2015 at 20:14

    Option 1, dont trade Hogan yet, still plenty of $$ to make.

    Patch · 07/05/2015 at 21:32

    Keep Hogan. Goddard should sit in that price bracket for a few weeks, give or take 20k. So option 1.

Billy · 07/05/2015 at 19:36

Rate him and think he will continue to score well but stick to proven ultra premos in the guts.

    SideBySidebottom · 07/05/2015 at 19:42

    Lewis is the odd one out there, unless he's polishing their boots. The others have consistently averaged over 100, Lewis has done it only once and he's 28.

SideBySidebottom · 07/05/2015 at 19:36

Is Sloane good to go? He may be my only trade this week.

    BarronVonCrow · 07/05/2015 at 19:43

    Noble said on the radio about 30 minutes ago that he was. Still, anything could happen between now and Saturday.

    Sam · 07/05/2015 at 19:45

    Keep

      SideBySidebottom · 07/05/2015 at 19:50

      Thanks Sam but I'm looking at trading him in, not out.

        Northernsoul74 · 07/05/2015 at 20:08

        Hasn't Sloane got a massive break even?

          Traderlyf · 07/05/2015 at 20:16

          yeah his BE is like 215

            SideBySidebottom · 07/05/2015 at 21:40

    Jacob · 07/05/2015 at 20:11

    Hogan and Krakouer. Salem a big risk of being subbed out after his concussion last week.

    Redgumwon · 08/05/2015 at 13:27

    Clark is due to fire out a big score. Tonight might be the night if he put together 4 quarters of footy

brook · 07/05/2015 at 19:55

now that goodes is named, thinking of trading him down to mckenzie if he is the sub. both in same game so will have that info … otherwise they will be same price in a couple of weeks

Derek · 07/05/2015 at 20:00

CEY not playing. Don’t mind that, will give me a loophole plus he will fatten up a bit later than other cas cows , plus the rest will do him good

    CJay · 07/05/2015 at 20:12

    Yeah good call Derek.
    First reaction was disappointment (probably as I wan't expecting it) but will probably loophole as well.

      Derek · 07/05/2015 at 20:25

      Everyone has CEY, so no real loss

        Rick Grimes · 08/05/2015 at 09:26

        The real POD might be to trade him. Who is to say he'll be back in two weeks. Could get vested, might have to fight his way back in.

Mac · 07/05/2015 at 20:00

Trade Goodes to McKenzie?

    brook · 07/05/2015 at 20:07

    i think i will if goodes is the sub … just watched mck tac highlights and looks good! not that you can take much from that

      Declan · 07/05/2015 at 20:56

      Goodes will loose cash this week so to save money i did that exact trade this week instead of next

tom · 07/05/2015 at 20:02

Currently have to field K-Mac as I only have Brown and cover so was wondering if it was worth upgrading him this week?

thoughts?

    Phil · 07/05/2015 at 20:27

    I'd back in K-Mac Tom, his season average is above 70 so technically he's only 15-20 points off the defence premiums and I'm sure you'd have a bigger worry than that on the other lines.

Tyler · 07/05/2015 at 20:09

Brett Goodes named. Should we drop I now before he loses money?

    Tyler · 07/05/2015 at 20:38

    Woops should I drop him now?

      Declan · 07/05/2015 at 20:57

      I have mate, really up to you though. BE of 98 doesn't look good

    @KingWinter7 · 07/05/2015 at 22:25

    Drop him for Mckenzie

FootyFanatic · 07/05/2015 at 20:09

Does anyone reckon T.Mitchell will stay in Sydney's side? I really want to trade him into my forward line (next round) but am uncertain that whether he'll be in Sydney's side for the rest of the year.

    @KingWinter7 · 07/05/2015 at 22:24

    Don't trade him in unless your certain he'll play. Nothing worse then trading him in to find out he gets dropped in a few weeks

Dean · 07/05/2015 at 20:10

I'm stuck as what I should do as I have Goodes, Van Berlo & Minson who is really starting to annoy me on the Emergency list. Also I have 27 trades left and $69,000 in the warchest…

This is my current side:
DEFENCE
Shaw, Oxley, Lumumba
Saad, McIntosh, Newnes
EMG
Geary, Goodes

MIDFIELD
Fyfe, Pendles, Sloane, JPK
Beams, Vandenberg, Cripps, Heeney
EMG
Ellis-Yolmen, Miller, Van Berlo

RUCK
Goldy, Minson
EMG
Read

FORWARD
Swan, Martin, Gray
Hogan, TBC, Krakouer
EMG
Lonie, Clark

Option 1: No trades and move TBC into my ruck AGAIN

Option 2: Trade out Goodes to McKenzie as it looks like he will be SUB although with his high 98 BE chances are he will drop again in price and generate $110k.

Option 3: Trade out NVB to McKenzie, then swap McKenzie to bring Newnes in my Midfield then trade out Newnes for either Mundy, Dangerfield, Shiel, Hippell, Ebert or Goddard and use Geary in defence as my D6 to replace Newnes.

    brook · 07/05/2015 at 20:16

    wait on final teams for option 2 … i will most likely hold if goodes is not the sub and do it the next week … may lose a bit of cash but worth it for extra game into mckenzie

    Mac · 07/05/2015 at 20:17

    Option 3. I Like either Mundy or Heppel

    @KingWinter7 · 07/05/2015 at 22:24

    Goodes down to Mckenzie then upgrade Minson to Goldy or NVB to a premium mid like JPK

      Dean · 08/05/2015 at 00:18

      I have Goldy and JPK

Jack · 07/05/2015 at 20:13

Can somebody please help explain how the emergency Loophole works?
Does it work if I have Tom Lamb playing on field and Salem and Clark as my emergencies then I will get the bigger score out of Salem and Clark?
I don't want to stuff it up and cost myself points.
Cheers

    Donavan · 07/05/2015 at 20:32

    Jack,

    You would need to have Clark as the Emergency. If he scores well you put Lamb on the ground and get Clarks score (ensure you just use the 1 emergency in the forward line).

    If you think Salem is likely to score better than Clark's score, then put Salem on the ground, and so long as all your on-ground players score, then you wont take Clarks score (as the emergency).

    Phil · 07/05/2015 at 20:32

    No you must name only 1 emergency for it to work. If Clark and Salem are the two guys you're undecided on starting name the one that plays first (Clark) emergency. Then if Clark goes well (70+ or whatever you're happy with) then you put Lamb on the field so that Clark replaces him.
    If Clark spuds it (-60) then you can put Salem on the field and Lamb off the field. Hope this helps

    Hamish · 07/05/2015 at 20:33

    Yeah mate what you said is right

    Tyler · 07/05/2015 at 20:36

    How it works is you have a non-playing player on field, that will play after one of your players on the bench. Set the 'E' on the player on the bench. Have another player on the bench who will play after the emergency player, but before the non-playing player.

    Then during the rolling lockout:

    If the emergency players scores well leave your team as it is. You will get the emergency players score.

    If the emergency player does not score well, sub the non playing player for the other playing player on your bench. You will get the player who was subbed on's score.

    So in your case, you would put Lamb on-field, with the 'E' on Clark, and have Salem on the bench with Clark. If clark does not score well or you think Salem will outscore Clark, sub salem on-field for Lamb.

    Hope you understood, It wasn't easy trying to explain how it works. Good Luck!

    Also if you have 2 emergency players you get the lower score

    Jack · 07/05/2015 at 20:49

    Thanks guys, understand how it all works now. Appreciate it

Liam · 07/05/2015 at 20:15

Great stuff Baron
Just wondering what you think we should do with CEY since he is not playing.
trade or Hold???

    brook · 07/05/2015 at 20:19

    says hamstring … hold unless its a tear. … need to check that one myself … would hold this week anyway

      Donavan · 07/05/2015 at 20:28

      Hold, out for 2 weeks only, and plenty of cash still to made from him.

    BarronVonCrow · 07/05/2015 at 23:20

    Holding him for 2 week injury.

Girdle · 07/05/2015 at 20:15

Would I be out of place in asking for a "trading thread" each week? I love these articles but the comments become a sea of trading questions after the first ten members.

Donavan · 07/05/2015 at 20:25

Who do I play on-field in the forward line?

Certainties – Goddard, Franklin, Gray, Tarrant

and need to select 2 from – Hogan, Krakouer, Lonie & Clark

No loopholes available.

Appreciate the communities thoughts, thanks.

    Dean · 07/05/2015 at 20:42

    Hogan a must and out of Krakour, Lonie & Clark flip a coin as any one of them can score decent scores.

    However if it helps I will be going in with Hogan & Krakouer

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2015 at 20:48

    I have those guys except Lonie. I dont have a loophole possibility either.

    At this stage I am playing Hogan and Clark.

    If I had Lonie, I would play him ahead of Clark. But beggars cant be choosers! lol

    I reckon Hogan and Lonie on the field for your side.

    Just my take though.

    Cheers

    @KingWinter7 · 07/05/2015 at 22:20

    Hogan and Krak is what i'm going with

Traderlyf · 07/05/2015 at 20:39

downgrade goodes to mckenzie then see if you can upgrade NVB to a prem mid

Francis · 07/05/2015 at 20:42

Downgrade Lumumba to McKenzie? Has a giant BE and has been a real disappointment. Do we think he'll pick up? Is he even worthy of being a Top 6 Defender come finals time?

    SideBySidebottom · 07/05/2015 at 21:51

    Flick Lumumba.

    @KingWinter7 · 07/05/2015 at 22:17

    Hold Lumumba, downgrade a cash cow to Mckenzie

Charlesy · 07/05/2015 at 20:43

Hi Community. I’m not doing this but it’s an idea for you guys to consider. If you have a dpp in defence like Hodge newnes saad etc and you’re looking to get Mc Kenzie in to make some cash this week or next, consider bringing him into your midfield. This can open up options for you which may help in case of injury in similar ways to having mids that can go forward. This may even extend to you having newnes or even saad if his form warrants it as your M7/8/9 or D7/8 at finals time. Good insurance and possibly save you trades? Like I said I m probably not doing it myself but thought I’d share it.

    Charlesy · 07/05/2015 at 20:51

    Sorry meant mid 9/10/11 for finals. Obviously you’d have 8 premo mids on field. Got the numbers wrong but you know what I mean. Lol

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2015 at 20:58

    I agree.

    Its already part of my strategy. Just sitting back this week to see how Newnes and Mckenzie go this round.

    After this round, it should become a lot clearer on which midfield rookies to harvest and whether the Newnes-Mc Kenzie combo is viable.

    Big round this one!

    Cheers

anthonyc12 · 07/05/2015 at 20:48

Pendles into Fyfe for me, and I think that's how it will be most weeks for me.
They are the only 2 that seem to be reliable enough to get you a captain worthy score most weeks. (At least not a sub 100)

    @KingWinter7 · 07/05/2015 at 22:16

    Agreed

    BarronVonCrow · 07/05/2015 at 23:19

    Yep. I think Fyfe hasn't had a score below 100 this year, so worst comes to the worst you'll at least get SOME points from it. Not the best, but won't bomb out like I have with Sloane for example.

Nash · 07/05/2015 at 20:53

Barron need your help mate
Salem to JPK (sydney)
Salem to Pridds
Salem to Goodard.
Am still really stuck on it.

    @KingWinter7 · 07/05/2015 at 22:16

    If you can get another one next week, i'd get Goddard this week and JPK next because JPK could stay around the same price whereas Goddard will rise rapidly after this week.

    If you can only bring in one of them i'd jump on JPK

    BarronVonCrow · 07/05/2015 at 23:19

    Yep, KingWinter7 probably hit it perfectly.

Westy · 07/05/2015 at 20:54

First week not trading
DEF Hibberd, Oxley, Simpson, Saad, Ibbotson, Newnes (McIntosh, H Goddard)
MID Mundy, Pendlebury, Sloane, D Beams, Vandenberg, Cripps, Miller, Heeney (Lewis, CEY, N Krak)
RUC Goldstein, Mumford (Cox)
FWD Swan, B Goddard, Bontempelli, R Gray, Hogan, Tarrant (Lamb, Salem)
23 trades left 78K in bank, rank 4,509. I am in awe of those players who may have only made a couple of trades and are top 1%.

    @KingWinter7 · 07/05/2015 at 22:14

    Fyfe and Dusty are your priority players to bring in.

    Next week bring in Glenn and Mckenzie for cash cows, should leave you with about 450k

    Then upgrade the week after to Fyfe and Dusty

      Westy · 07/05/2015 at 22:52

      It's good to be the King.

      Currently have 12 on the pine in round 12 with 4 of them in the mids and 5 down back. Fyfe, McKenzie and Glenn are also Round 12 byes, so if I'm moving things round, they'd probably be replacing any of Ibbotson, Newnes, Saad or Oxley down back, and Miller or Heeney in the mids. CEY is probably one I'd move out in round 11 perhaps based on a FWD swing.

      It will be interesting to see whether Rockliff starts to ton up and when GAJ makes a return.

      I've looked at Mundy as my shark v shoal for Fyfe, with the intent to bring Fyfe in for Round 13.

        Westy · 07/05/2015 at 23:00

        Is it just me or does anyone think Dusty and Eminem could have been separated at birth?

    Dean · 07/05/2015 at 23:22

    Your doing well to be ranked under 5000 with your side mate you must of had the gun rookies on at the right time.

    You really need to concentrate on your midfield as thats where the bulk of your points will come from, your midfield is a little weak so try boost that up at the latest by next week by adding 1 extra premo such as Ffyfe.

    However your quite low on trades, im presuming your in it for a league win, if so save those trades.

Anders · 07/05/2015 at 20:57

G'day guys just need help as to what to do with Jack Newnes got $207k in the bank and im not sure who to bring? Cheers

    SideBySidebottom · 07/05/2015 at 21:58

    Hold.

    @KingWinter7 · 07/05/2015 at 22:11

    Hold, use the money to upgrade a cash cow

    dognino · 07/05/2015 at 22:25

    I'm goin newnes down to Mckenzie to build the warchest. Newnes will be on the bench for me anyway

Sana · 07/05/2015 at 21:05

Ok, considering Paddy Ryder in my fwd line as I don’t have a backup ruck (Goldy and Maric are my rucks with Read to swing if need be). But! Goddard is the same price with probably a higher ceiling.

What are your thoughts community? Ryder fwd and backup ruck or Goddard with no backup ruck?

    @KingWinter7 · 07/05/2015 at 22:11

    Goddard easily, most people don't have a backup ruck anyway

Tofor · 07/05/2015 at 21:05

Want to make one trade this week. Holding Lewis on the pine.
Bringing in Pendlebury.
Who would you trade out from the following options;
1. Jack Martin (via Fwd/Mid Swing)
2. Daniel Rich
3. Ryan Griffen

Also, who to have on the field out of Mitch Clark, Hogan, Krak and Lonie. Pick two.

Love to hear your thoughts.

    Donavan · 07/05/2015 at 21:52

    Trade Griffen.

    Play Hogan & Lonie.

    SideBySidebottom · 07/05/2015 at 22:02

    Griffen.

    @KingWinter7 · 07/05/2015 at 22:10

    Trade Martin for Pendles

    Hogan and Krak on the field

hearsay · 07/05/2015 at 21:07

When can we expect the podcast?

Bob · 07/05/2015 at 21:10

G'day community, I want to trade Salem this week to get some cash in the kitty. Salem is in my forward line. I want a rookie to downgrade to. I already have Krak and Tarrant.

Any thoughts.

    @KingWinter7 · 07/05/2015 at 22:03

    Swap him with a midfield / forward dpp (krak, lambert) and trade him down to Glenn

      Bob · 07/05/2015 at 22:10

      Thanks King but I don't have any dpp midfielders

tom · 07/05/2015 at 21:33

If I have the trades and cash to upgrade McIntosh this week should I?

not sure wether to wait for him to make more cash or pull the trigger early to try and help my ranking.

    Gold Rush · 07/05/2015 at 21:43

    if the player your going to upgrade to is also going up in price (e.g. Pittard), why not. If McIntosh does not score well this week he will be the number rookie dumped next week. If he goes like he did R1 well then you lose out on big cash generation.

      tom · 07/05/2015 at 21:45

      thats my only worry Gold Rush but if I dont upgrade this week I will most likely have to keep on playing 3 rookies down back for another 2 weeks as I am hoping for a double downgrade next week in Glenn and Mckenzie.

        Gold Rush · 07/05/2015 at 21:50

        Got the same problem tom. I'm in the SC Cup but have a bye this week – otherwise I was seriously thinking about taking a punt doing a trade.

Jack · 07/05/2015 at 21:43

I’m not sure whether to upgrade bellchambers to goldy or upgrade him to mummy for 100k cheaper which would allow me to upgrade Salem to a premo the following week. Do people think goldy and mummy will have a similar output from here on out?

    Dean · 07/05/2015 at 23:26

    Mummy is a dud, the guy usually plays real well in the first 6 to 10 games then tapers off. Goldy is the MUST have ruck this season.

jesse · 07/05/2015 at 21:48

tex – fyfe for me thought?

    BarronVonCrow · 07/05/2015 at 23:18

    Could certainly do worse! I like the risk on Tex with the safety of Fyfe.

brook · 07/05/2015 at 22:17

whats the go with sc cup? do i need to be a news subscriber?

    Gold Rush · 07/05/2015 at 22:23

    yes, but it's too late for you as draw was determined from r5 results.

Ryan · 07/05/2015 at 22:21

Who's the #1 Defender to bring in? (I have Taylor and McDonald)

Disco · 07/05/2015 at 22:38

picken for me,has an ok run and previous points support,but I needed someone for hodge (and lewis) ,
haven't heard anything nice said about picken so im happy to go fishin on him.
really like McGovern too but he may need a rest.

    Westy · 07/05/2015 at 23:03

    Picken – an interesting POD. No one has really rated him, and given the Dogs have been flying, it could be inspired.

    TheCompletePackage · 08/05/2015 at 23:23

    Got him in myself as well….need to be brave.

Disco · 07/05/2015 at 23:01

sry, vc pick danger c pick danger:)…or fyfe or gray

tigga · 07/05/2015 at 23:02

Hey community just wondering if you could trade in any defender atm who you think will be within the top 10 defenders at the end of the year and with price not being an issue, who would it be???

dean · 07/05/2015 at 23:51

"Matthew Bontempelli" a bit of a typo there lol 🙂

Should i pick up JPK this week if i can

Jono · 08/05/2015 at 06:32

Community….Dahlhaus or Goddard???

Nick · 08/05/2015 at 07:05

Thoughts andrew swallow to Godard?

Tom · 08/05/2015 at 07:28

Salem to Glen via DPP?

Rick Grimes · 08/05/2015 at 10:24

Who is a bigger priority this week – Pendles or Goddard?

    SideBySidebottom · 08/05/2015 at 15:29

    Pendles. He brings a captaincy option.

Josh · 08/05/2015 at 11:32

Is Salem to Ziebell in forward line and Heeney to Glenn in midfield good trades?

    Rick Grimes · 08/05/2015 at 11:48

    Is Zeibell a top 6 forward? Take away his spud score and it all looks good, but just have some doubt there. Heeney has a lot more cash left in him. If he tons up this weekend, I think a few will be cursing themselves – big "if" I know, but it's already happened a couple of times this season.

Derma147 · 08/05/2015 at 12:04

Build the kitty or upgrade to a premo?

Gordo D Magnificent · 08/05/2015 at 14:22

What do i do with Kelly, as doc's listed him as 3 weeks out now. Do i trade him? and if so, who 2?

jimmydowland · 08/05/2015 at 15:53
