G’day community, WHAT A ROUND OF FOOTBALL! Surprise results everywhere you turn – GWS, Eagles, Saints, Cats and even the Lions – all winners against the odds! How did you go this week?

ARE YOU A CLUB JOCK MEMBER YET? CLICK HERE AND REAP THE BENEFITS

I had a tough one with my overall ranking slipping nearly 500 places from 1,496 to 1,939. I’m disappointed and I’m assessing what decisions I have made to see if I fell into any traps. It’s times like these you learn what you are made of, it’s times like these we learn to swear out loud the name of Christian Salem for doing stuff all for weeks and then a producing 117 – talk about a surprise!

Unfortunately I was not swearing Salem’s name from a position of joy, but rather from a position of frustration as he was one of the fattened rookies I culled last week. If you didn’t cull any cows last week, then pull on your gumboots, roll up your sleeves because surely this week is the week! If you did make a couple of trades last week, I hope one of them was an upgrade to Goddard or JPK – as I mentioned in last week’s check-in, they were on my radar for as a short term upgrade as their price looked to have bottomed out – and didn’t they both deliver by each punching out a trouser stretching 135 points. Despite holding Lewis on the bench for two weeks due to suspension, last week I decided to build a warchest for the coming weeks of upgrades and take advantage of the big number of fallen premiums coming our way down the conveyor belt. As such, the axe came down on CEY (to Glenn) and it also fell for Salem (to Webb) with the result equating to a bank balance over $340k.

So what am I thinking about this week?

The other person I mentioned last week, as a short term target, was Tom Mitchell – and hasn’t he opened up in stunning fashion for his first two games this year! I am likely to follow Crouching’s trade philosophy this week and go BANG BANG again but rather than a double downgrade, I suspect you will find me painting  the fence this week. Thank you to K-mac and Isaac Heeney for the role they have played and generating some cash, but its time say good bye and welcome D-mac (Daniel McKenzie) as (paint down) and then……..is it Tom Mitchell (paint up)? This is my dilemma this week – Tom Mitchell looks to be excellent value at just over $400k and averaging almost 120 over his first two games. Can he continue this or is he a trap? Or, am I better off going to JPK this week – I want him in my team but I think can he wait a couple of weeks.

Let’s take a closer look at Titch

It is very difficult to know exactly where Tom Mitchell sits within the grand plans of John Longmire and his premiership tilt for 2015. This is the potential trap around Titch – the uncertainty as to whether he is in the best 18 or 22. Whilst Mitchell was eligible to debut in 2012, he didn’t play his first game until early in 2013. At that time, I remember Matthew Lloyd saying that once he debuted, he would rarely be out of the team and would go on to play 200 games for the Swans. It hasn’t exactly played out that way so far. He had an injury interrupted 2014 and when he did play he was consistently inconsistent. Despite being fit and ready to play for the start of this year, it was only the injury to Heeney last week which opened up a spot for Mitchell – and he grabbed it. The question is, does the PCL injury to Heeney this week increase Tom Mitchell’s job security for the next 2 months? Only Longmire really knows what he expects out of Tom, however if Barry Mitchell’s-son, continues to put up the numbers he has delivered in his first two games, then he selects himself.

Below is a quick table looking at where Tom’s gains have been made in his two games relative to his previous 20 games. You can see the scoring uplift has been driven through greater disposal numbers and a greater percentage of his disposals being contested possessions – maybe it is this element that Longmire wanted to see from young Tom Mitchell – gathering of the pill at the coal face.

The question begs, is Tom Mitchell a genuine breakout player or is he a stepping stone? Is he another version of Bontempelli? I am considering Titch as a long term bench cover candidate come late in the season with his DPP the element that is tempting me the most. I don’t expect him to continue averaging 120, but if he could manage 95-105, then he might be perfect for the role of F7 or M9 whilst allowing some of the residual warchest to be used next week and a possible double upgrade – BANG BANG!

Over to you community, the poll this week is a very simple one, will you, or will you not be bringing in Tom Mitchell?

Spooners · 11/05/2015 at 12:31

Great article Chicko, its a tough decision whether or not to get him in. Would like to hear who you would trade out to get him in.

    General Soreness · 11/05/2015 at 14:22

    For what it is worth, I will be in amongst the shoal this week Spooners McKenzie and Titch will come in. Still deciding on who to get rid of but Hogan and Vandenberg are heading the list. Heeney and Kmac also in the mix.

      Emma · 11/05/2015 at 19:06

      I agree general I don't think we can lose trading in mitchell at this price. Even if he does get dropped after 6 weeks or so. We get his premium like scores for 6 weeks over a rookie and then trade him out if we have to.

      I will be trading Newton to Mitchell and Heeney to Mckenzie. This opens up the back and forward sing. Also KMac to Lever is looking good in 2 weeks time. I am going to keep Hogan until bye round

    Chicko · 11/05/2015 at 14:39

    Thanks Spooners, it's a bloody tough decision alright! If go I Titch it will likely mean saying farewell to Hogan or Vandenberg, but most likely Hogan. I have a bit of money to go up from Hogan without needing to do a downgrade

      Josh · 11/05/2015 at 15:55

      Chicko
      I’m getting rid of hogan too
      But who would you say is better
      Goddard
      Titch
      Or Parker

      I’m sick of these players like swallow and Griffen who are scoring really inconsistently
      And I think titch could be another one of them

        Swans2012 · 11/05/2015 at 18:21

        Probably is, but a much cheaper version

      BackYardPunter · 11/05/2015 at 19:03

      I don’t think it’s worth the risk with rocky getting 9 tackles means he’s back in the contest the posies aren’t far away and we can grab him at a possible 450k next round STEAL! That’s only 40k more for a proven keeper and almost a straight swap for Rich.

        Swans2012 · 11/05/2015 at 19:49

        Why not both, I think it’s fair to say everyones going to be on rocky

      Spooners · 11/05/2015 at 19:50

      No worries Chicko, I'm not sure about Titch quite yet, but I am looking to upgrade along the next few weeks. I just wanted your opinion on who you would pick out of these players in these positions.

      MID: JPK, Selwood, Mundy, Shiel, Danger and Hannerbery. In the Mids I was looking more towards JPK and Selwood because I feel that there is more chance of them scoring consistently and not dropping off towards the end of the season. I might also look to grab Rocky in a couple of weeks when his price hits rock bottom (Straight swap for Rich).

      FWD: Goddard, Franklin, Roughy and Dahlhaus. I was more leaning to pick up Goddard for Hogan or Mitch Clark and waiting for a few weeks to see if Franklin is looking in form.
      Thanks.

Supercoach General · 11/05/2015 at 12:37

With 734k in the warchest and this round so far I have traded out Heeney for D-Mac and was wondering whether to trade CEY up to a premo like JPK or hold onto him for another week with 834k in the kitty, your thoughts?

    Sarah · 11/05/2015 at 13:58

    That is way too much money to have sitting in the bank not scoring you points. Buy some premiums immediately. This game is about scoring points, not who has the biggest bank balance.

      General Soreness · 11/05/2015 at 14:21

      ^^^^^ Do This!

        Chicko · 11/05/2015 at 14:25

        Agree with General, get upgrading ASAP Supercoach General!

          Supercoach General · 11/05/2015 at 18:21

          MID: Mundy? JPK? Selwood? Shiel? Hannerbery? Armitage?
          FWD: Goddard? Franklin? Martin? Dahlhaus? Pavlich? Roughy?
          or anyone else
          Who would be the best to trade in at the moment.

            jake · 11/05/2015 at 18:36

            in order- JPK, selwood, Hanneberry, Armitage, mundy

    Girdle · 11/05/2015 at 15:59

    Don’t think……DO!

    Supercoach General · 11/05/2015 at 16:25

    Thanks for the the tips guys, that's what I also was planning in the next couple of weeks.Who would you guys suggest as some of the must have premiums in each of the positions. At the moment my team features Shaw, Fyfe, Pendles, Neale, Sloane, Swan, Gray and the Bont as some of the main scorers. Who else should I be looking at at this point of time? Thanks again guys.

    Mighty_Hondo · 12/05/2015 at 01:31

    Just remember you will probably want to pick up Rocky in about 2-4 weeks

General Soreness · 11/05/2015 at 12:38

Great article Chicko, his JS is a concern but a good DE and getting plenty of it is a great sign. Does this mean more forward time for Parker?

In McKenzie and Titch will be the largest trade in's all year imho.

    Patch · 11/05/2015 at 12:47

    Completely agree on all counts, General.

    Chicko · 11/05/2015 at 14:13

    Cheers General, suspect you are absolutely right! I suspect either Parker or Titch could spend time forward or both rotating through.

      @gurks31 · 11/05/2015 at 19:30

      JPK spent alot of time forward saturday night and snagged a couple, reckon all 3 will move through the forward line

Luke · 11/05/2015 at 12:41

Thoughts on keeping Sloane?

    Patch · 11/05/2015 at 12:48

    Need to assess the injury before we can make the call, Luke. If you can, hold him.

    Cozza · 11/05/2015 at 12:50

    Depends on the outcome of his scans today. Hold if there is no fracture – trade if he is out for 4-6 weeks with a fracture. His last 2 scores have been low due to injury (concussion and cheek) – there was only the one game against the Western Bulldogs where he had a shocker. He will bounce back once he is back to full health (hopefully this weekend)

      Sarah · 11/05/2015 at 13:59

      Even the game against the bulldogs he picked up a corked calf. Poor Sloany's been in the wars a bit.

    @Rem_Wah · 11/05/2015 at 19:18

    Adelaide FC have confirmed that it is a 4-6 week injury… Trade

Patch · 11/05/2015 at 12:47

Nice Chicko. The numbers look tasty!

    Chicko · 11/05/2015 at 14:14

    Cheers Patch. I don't expect Titch to continue those numbers but would be happy with 95 points here on in.

Cozza · 11/05/2015 at 12:51

Anyone see Andrew Swallow's game on the weekend – was there a reason he scored so low? He is killing me at the moment 🙁

    Josh · 11/05/2015 at 15:59

    Handbalł to kick ratio I think I was annoyed aswell

      Girdle · 11/05/2015 at 16:04

      Rd4- Carlton vs StKilda
      Patrick Cripps had 8 kicks and 25 handballs for his 172 points. Is handball to kick ratio that much of a deterrance?

        Josh · 11/05/2015 at 19:30

        I think it’s also things like score involvements and stuff

          Swans2012 · 11/05/2015 at 20:00

          Also efficiency, contested possessions etc

            randomcliche · 11/05/2015 at 21:24

            I'd suggest it was concussion from the week before. I nearly put him on the pine because of it. Didn't trade because he could run, not walk, off. Concussion is serious and I suggest loopholing him this week with the Friday night match.

              randomcliche · 11/05/2015 at 21:27

              He had two hits that he was momentarily out for. Watch the hodge strike and the the high sandwitch.

derek · 11/05/2015 at 13:00

Great write.

If we get him in, it is for keeps. He will increase in cash, but you will get better cash generation from a rookie. I don't think he will be top 10 forwards at year-end.

too much talent in swans midfield. Parker, JPK, McGlynn, Haneberry, McVeigh, Jack, Bird…I'm sure there are others.

wait a week or two, and you will be able to get Buddy for about $50k more than TMitchell. I'll be waiting.

r2d2 · 11/05/2015 at 13:06

Went from Salem too goddard last week , then Salem goes bang !! But least I have Goddard now I suppose

    Sarah · 11/05/2015 at 14:00

    I did the same thing. Bloody Salem has done nothing all year until I trade him out.

    Hoops · 11/05/2015 at 19:11

    I had him on my bench and he goes bang

    Swans2012 · 11/05/2015 at 20:02

    Salem would have been on bench for me anyhow so nothing lost ( other than the extra $$ he makes now… Grrrr…)

Jack · 11/05/2015 at 13:07

Got to get him in, I reckon. Can’t over think it too much with the position he may or may not be in with Longmire as no one knows exactly unless they’re personally involved.

I’m looking at a 405k priced player in a winning team that has shown he can score big in the past and coming off 115odd and 125odd. Genuine chance of being a top 6 forward in terms of average from this point onwards.

Think about it enough and you’ll worry yourself out of it. Don’t miss the bus is where I stand!

    Chicko · 11/05/2015 at 14:45

    Hi Jack, I like it and am leaning that way myself – not to overthink it. Even if he isn't top 6, he could be Top 10 and that is good enough for me as long term bench cover as long as the funds are there to upgrade elsewhere.

r2d2 · 11/05/2015 at 13:08

Thoughts on this manoeuvre ? Hitting trade on vandenberg (BE 60 odd ) , moving saad into mids and bringing in a def with my remaining 90 odd k , so a Hibbard or Simpson type ,,, then rich out , Mitchell in as 2nd trade

    r2d2 · 11/05/2015 at 13:11

    Def is currently shaw , lumumba ,Oxley shaw , t hunt , k Mac , j kelly , d Mac ,, so it needs strengthening , and can use saad as a swing man …

      scrofl · 11/05/2015 at 13:49

      That is a pretty weak defense, another premo in there would do you a world of good.

        r2d2 · 11/05/2015 at 14:45

        J kelly from cats … Holding him for some reason , but yeah an upgrade or maybe 2 this week ,, not sure I want too miss the r Mitch train though

          r2d2 · 11/05/2015 at 14:46

          T Mitch

          scrofl · 11/05/2015 at 15:17

          I'm personally not getting Mitchell in, If I'm trading someone in for a rookie, I want them to be there come season's end. I don't think Mitchell will keep his spot when Heeney comes back.

Pinidu.C · 11/05/2015 at 13:14

I'm thinking of:
Rich > Priddis
Heeney > McKenzie
But I'll only have 21 trades left? Is it worth it?

    Danners16 · 11/05/2015 at 15:18

    Quicker you get to a premium team, the quicker your team will be better

      derek · 11/05/2015 at 17:51

      classic fence paint move.

murray · 11/05/2015 at 13:23

how many have dropped Vandenburg this week?. Has BE of 62

    northernsoul74 · 11/05/2015 at 13:30

    Close but he's saved by dropping Heeney and poss Hogan before him.

      murray · 11/05/2015 at 13:35

      your right, hogan's BE is 77. He has to go befor VDB.

Harry · 11/05/2015 at 13:43

What do I do with MInson. Do i continue to hold him or do i trade him up to somebody like Mumford or Jacobs. Cheers

    General Soreness · 11/05/2015 at 14:18

    If you can get to Mumford of Jacobs, do it!

      Harry · 11/05/2015 at 14:31

      Cheers. Who do u think is the better option

        General Soreness · 11/05/2015 at 14:53

        I have a personal preference for Mummy because he loves a cuddle which means his has a higher floor than Jacobs.

        But Jacobs more likely to play 22.

        You cannot go wrong with either imho.

        Jack · 11/05/2015 at 14:53

        Jacobs.

          derek · 11/05/2015 at 17:52

          if you want Mummy, you probably need to get him this week or next. Sauce you probably have two or three weeks to get him.

    Danners16 · 11/05/2015 at 15:18

    Got to trade, Mumford and Jacobs are good options

Rick Grimes · 11/05/2015 at 13:46

I'm thinking either:

Heeney > McKenzie
Hogan > Titch

or

Vandenberg > McKenzie
Hogan > Goddard

???

    murray · 11/05/2015 at 13:54

    option 1, can use titch as a stepping stone to a premo

    Wattsieesq · 11/05/2015 at 14:08

    Option 2. Why burn an extra trade going from titch to a premo when you can go straight there with Goddard?

      General Soreness · 11/05/2015 at 14:24

      But he may not burn another trade if the saved $$ (difference between Goddard and Titch) allows him to upgrade another rook to fallen premo without a cull.

        Chicko · 11/05/2015 at 14:46

        You are exactly right General, it is this very reason why I am thinking about going to Titch. It means I can go to Rocky next week without even thinking about it.

          General Soreness · 11/05/2015 at 14:59

          Rocky so tasty!

            Chicko · 11/05/2015 at 16:32

            The only question General is whether you wait post his bye round, but I am leaning towards next week. Will drop to around $430k…..means the midfield is stacked to M7 which means yours will be at a full premium deck to M8 with Rocky's inclusion.

    General Soreness · 11/05/2015 at 14:27

    So your question is – who will score the most from here on out of Titch or Goddard?

    Goddard is proven with locked JS, Titch is unknown with ?? JS.

    My question is what will you do with the saved $$ if you go Titch? It is there that the difference needs to be assessed.

    Danners16 · 11/05/2015 at 15:17

    1st, Heeney is out for a while

      derek · 11/05/2015 at 17:53

      Can you go Heeney to Mckenzie & Hogan to Goddard?

        Rick Grimes · 12/05/2015 at 05:08

        Well with Sloan out I’m now trading him to Goddard and Heendog to McKenzie. Bagging the change and will look at a further upgrade next week. Vandenberg should hold value and then he’s a straight swap to Rocky.

Matt · 11/05/2015 at 13:52

Bring in goddard or titch? Can’t bring them both in this week

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 11/05/2015 at 13:56

    I'm bringing in titch….and going to goddard in the next weeks or so? Tich should make some cash next week.

      derek · 11/05/2015 at 17:54

      if you want cash, go McKenzie……. you don't get TMitch in to make you cash. that is silly.

    mattforrest8 · 11/05/2015 at 14:07

    same dilemma im facing. Im going for goddard, as he's more likely to be best 6 forwards come end of season, whereas titch is more a stepping stone, and a waste of a trade despite being a juicy proposition

    Danners16 · 11/05/2015 at 15:17

    Tough one, I would say Goddard only just

      derek · 11/05/2015 at 17:55

      Goddard by a fair margin

Zilla · 11/05/2015 at 14:11

Vandenburg? Cut or keep? Not sure…

    Chicko · 11/05/2015 at 14:47

    Hi Zilla, line ball that one, has a 62 BE so you could keep for one more week. I plan to trade him out next week.

      derek · 11/05/2015 at 17:56

      I have to get rid of Hogan first, McIntosh second and he will be third. so he is safe this week.

    Danners16 · 11/05/2015 at 15:15

    I think he needs to go

    UDA · 11/05/2015 at 15:25

    One more week

Thoughts on T Mitchell v D Shiel

    jimmyjim · 11/05/2015 at 14:39

    Shiel

jimmyjim · 11/05/2015 at 14:39

You guys like L Neale or JPK better ? Torn.

    shemm · 11/05/2015 at 15:16

    jpk for sure

    Danners16 · 11/05/2015 at 15:16

    JPK, more reliable

    Sarah · 11/05/2015 at 15:21

    JPK. Has proven scoring history.

    Bailey · 11/05/2015 at 15:28

    I already have swan, gray, Martin and rioli down forward I am considering Tom Mitchell, are there any better options? Maybe bontempelli or have I missed the boat on him

      Bailey · 11/05/2015 at 15:29

      Didn’t mean to post this on this comment^^

      shemm · 11/05/2015 at 15:42

      goddard would also be someone to look at not sure about his BE and unfortunately you wouldnt get him as cheap as people last week but watch him

Jaydos · 11/05/2015 at 15:08

Should i trade in T Mitchell or D Smith

    Danners16 · 11/05/2015 at 15:15

    Smith, more reliable, better job security

    @Rem_Wah · 11/05/2015 at 19:24

    Definitely Devon Smith

Nathan · 11/05/2015 at 15:09

Pretty easy decision for me. Titch is the legit. Don't sleep.

shemm · 11/05/2015 at 15:15

who is more likely to be a keeper titch or bonempelli? or should i keep hogan and get another mid as i already have gray goddard martin and swan

Luviboy1 · 11/05/2015 at 15:43

270k in the chest. Do I go:

Rich to Fyfe with 18k left
or
Rich to Titch and Hogan to Goddard with 52k left

Still waiting on Sloane, if hes gone for 4-6 Ill just go Rich to JPK/Selwood/Priddis and Hogan to Goddard.

    shemm · 11/05/2015 at 15:49

    i like the first one dont think titch is worth having in the midfield he wont be a keeper there

      Luviboy1 · 11/05/2015 at 15:50

      If I were to do that trade I'd swing Krak into mids. But Sloane has just been confirmed 4-6 hes gone

        shemm · 11/05/2015 at 15:52

        in that case second getting 2 keepers out of it and that sucks i will have to get rid of him too

    derek · 11/05/2015 at 17:57

    Fyfe by a fair margin

AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 11/05/2015 at 15:45

It's official Sloane out 4-6 weeks

    Luviboy1 · 11/05/2015 at 15:46

        Adelaide website….he will have surgery in the next 24 hrs

      Jonesy · 11/05/2015 at 15:58

      On Facebook, its true

Liam · 11/05/2015 at 15:46

Heeney to mckenzie
Swallow to Priddis

Are these good trades??

    Luviboy1 · 11/05/2015 at 15:47

    Solid.

Luviboy1 · 11/05/2015 at 15:51

Sloane gone for 4-6. http://www.afc.com.au/news/2015-05-11/injury-upda

Jonesy · 11/05/2015 at 15:58

What to do with Sloane?

    Luviboy1 · 11/05/2015 at 16:02

    Im trading him straight to Fyfe. 4-6 too long to hold.

      Traderlyf · 11/05/2015 at 16:33

      want to trade him to JPK but i would have parker, fyfe, pendles, heppell, JPK who all have the round 12 bye…..

    northernsoul74 · 11/05/2015 at 16:11

    I'm holding. Just don't have the trades to keep trading out every injured player plus I cant afford to lock in such a large loss. Tough game this year. 6 weeks for a minor cheek fracture sounds like a long time to me but I guess with the round 11 bye they may just wait until that is out of the way.

    derek · 11/05/2015 at 17:59

    correctional trade needed. don't hesitate.

AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 11/05/2015 at 16:08

Ive Lost Sidebottom Bartel Ablett Bennell Lewis and now Sloane???? Might have to bench him for the 4-6 weeks?? Have 22 trades left??

Thoughts?

    Jonesy · 11/05/2015 at 16:25

    You should have enough to trade him out, if you don't have any other problems go for it

    derek · 11/05/2015 at 17:59

    Trade. you have to.

Jack · 11/05/2015 at 16:08

Surgery for Sloane – 4 to 6 weeks on the sidelines.

I’m thinking that I’m going to hold him. I have other things to worry about and after this exact thing happened to me with Ollie Wines already, I’m not interested in dealing premiums unless I’m going to cop a doughnut. I’m already strapped for trades having been forced down to 23. That will become 21 before the weekend without dealing with Sloane.

My trades this week will be the same as everybody else.

Heeney to McKenzie

Hogan to T. Mitchell

Hopefully CEY gets back either this week or next to provide better cover than having one of Krak and McKenzie on field. Get comfy, Rory. You’ll ride my pine for at least a month.

    @t_woof · 11/05/2015 at 19:25

    Beginning to think the same with Sloane.

    Already used 3 doing Rocky > Lewis, Ablett > Sloane, and Touk FML Miller > Van Berlo. Not doing anymore sideways with premiums unless out for the entire season.

    Sloane can join Lewis and Hodge on the pine.

    PDAP · 11/05/2015 at 19:58

    Slone is out for 5 weeks. The next 4 plus the round 11 bye. That is why I am trading him next week for Rocky. I hate trading premiums but!!!!!

      Glorin · 12/05/2015 at 00:54

      Will be great option to bring in post bye if you dont have him. Will be best 10 mids so if anyone has him and can hold on bench do it. Lots of teams will be trading him out and later in season he will be a POD.

        Tylo · 12/05/2015 at 10:32

        If you hold him, you'll be sweating on teams come round 12 with so many mid premos out that week.

Leon · 11/05/2015 at 16:11

My current team is:
DEF: Shaw, Smith, Oxley, Saad, Mcintosh, Newnes [Kelly, Goddard]
MID: Fyfe, Selwood, Dangerfield, Neale, Jack, Griffen, Cripps, Vandenberg [CEY, Boekhorst, Dumont]
RUC: Maric, Blicavs [O'Brien]
FWD: Martin, Swan, Gray, Bont, Hogan, Clark [Tarrant, Krakouer]

Have 22 trades & $104,000 in the bank.

Have a few options this week:

1. Mcintosh – D mckenzie ($230,000)
2. Mcintosh – D Mckenzie & Newnes – Enright
3. Hogan – Mitchell & Mcintosh – D Mckenzie
4. Hogan – Goddard & Mcintosh – D Mckenzie
5. Vandenberg – JPK & Mcinotsh – D Mckeznie
6. Hold

How many trades should i have by the byes?
Which option is best?
Thoughts on team?
Please help out
Thanks

    Ethan · 11/05/2015 at 17:28

    is it worth getting enright at his highest price?
    for now. its between 2 and 3
    Theres a debate whether to bring in Goddard or Titch so its 50/50

    derek · 11/05/2015 at 18:14

    you don't have much bench cover in defence. I would trade out Hogan for Mckenzie instead of Mcintosh as you might need the cover in defence, you don't want to rely on Mckenzie's score. (swing H Goddard to Fwd)

    Mcintosh has an ok BE and I think he can still score ok. Hold him and loophole him with Kelly.

    JPK & Goddard are both great picks. I would jump on Goddard this week, only because I think he has hit bottom. JPK is a good pick as well, but there is more choice in the premiums in the midfield. if you miss goddard in forwards you may regret it.

    Vandenberg to Goddard (via Krak swing). This will also give you a Fwd/Mid swing set.

      r2d2 · 11/05/2015 at 19:23

      Goddard was at bottom last week

    Glorin · 12/05/2015 at 01:00

    You have stuck with newnes till now. I would hold. Not enough confidence in any defender right now To trade him especially with loss on his price and paying top price on enright. Double loss.
    I am waiting a few more weeks on defenders as there will be a few bargain buys around rookie culling time.

Tyler · 11/05/2015 at 16:19

Is now the time to trade out bellchambers? Not interested in bringing in tom mitchell and already got mckenzie… Got about 400k to spare

    Ethan · 11/05/2015 at 17:25

    if your confident in your ruckstocks will play out the year then now is not a bad time
    However if he's sitting as that f5 in your team. then there is no reason to trade him. Consistant 60,70's No one to down to so theres only those who we need to upgrade. Goddard was an option last week but now we just wait to see who drops in price

      Tyler · 11/05/2015 at 19:00

      Thanks He’s my R2 so looking at upgrading him. Who do you think is the best option out of Mumford, Jacobs, blicavs or grundy

        pat · 11/05/2015 at 21:32

        mumford, jacobs.. only ones id touch, and mumford slighty, reckon he can be more consistant than jacobs who gives us 120 then back it up with 60-70 as hes done this year

        Swans2012 · 12/05/2015 at 07:17

        I think Jacobs, but has a highish break even so no rush, I’ll be doing the same in a week or two, belch at r2 here as well

          Swans2012 · 12/05/2015 at 07:19

          And keep an eye open for kruezer, the guys like an over inflated balloon (could pop at any minute), but will be cheap and has shown significant scoring in the past.

Ashley J · 11/05/2015 at 16:23

Vandenberg or Rich to JPK or Priddis?

    Ethan · 11/05/2015 at 17:25

    Rich first. Seeming to get the attention

    Tyler · 11/05/2015 at 19:01

    I would go to priddis, good chance to be top 10 mid

Caz · 11/05/2015 at 16:25

For those who have sloane like myself, I am holding for this week and possibly next week but then the option of sloane to rockliff presents itself. More than likely will do this in the next week or 2.

    FootyFanatic · 11/05/2015 at 17:50

    Ideally id like to hold Sloane, but with Lewis and Ellis Yolmen on the pine I am forced to trade him

    derek · 11/05/2015 at 18:16

    +1

    SCaddict · 11/05/2015 at 18:25

    You will only need to wait a week for Rocky, assuming no further misfortune befalls him, as he will be at his cheapest then.

      Caz · 11/05/2015 at 19:34

      This is the plan, out next week for rocky.

    Azza · 11/05/2015 at 19:27

    Hold 1 week for Rockliff if you have the midfield coverage.

      Swans2012 · 12/05/2015 at 07:26

      Puts you one premo down on all those doing a simple rookie upgrade to rocky, I’d trade him now to one of the other fallen premos

shemm · 11/05/2015 at 16:58

whats a higher priority, upgrading rookies who have stopped going up or trading injured premiums?

    Luviboy1 · 11/05/2015 at 17:57

    Depends on the length of the injury. A lot of us have Sloane and after putting careful thought into I will be holding him. It just depends on how many trades you have and your point scoring capabilities. Personally I'm prioritising upgrading Rookies with high BE's.

1234 · 11/05/2015 at 17:08

Hello, does anyone know how long CEY will be out for?

    Ethan · 11/05/2015 at 17:24

    they said two weeks last week, but since he's a rookie it could be 3

      FootyFanatic · 11/05/2015 at 17:47

      With Sloane out though you'd think Adelaide would want to bring Ellis Yolmen back in as soon as he's fit to play

Cyril is Delicious · 11/05/2015 at 17:08

Is Luke Parker worth getting? Or should I spend more money and get JPK, or Priddis?

Upgarding Heeney by the way.

    Jack · 11/05/2015 at 18:09

    JPK for mine. Most likely out of those 3 for top 8 finish in the mids.

    Traderlyf · 11/05/2015 at 18:10

    JPK more reliable

Ryan · 11/05/2015 at 17:14

Im inside the top 500 so would love some advice
Current team:
DEF: shaw, taylor,gibson,ibbotson,oxley,kmac,saad,brown
MID: fyfe,pendles,selwood,JPK,danger,cripps,vanderberg,newton,CEY,glenn,krakour
RUCK: goldy, nicnat, cox
FWDS: martin,swan,gray,bont,hogan,tarrent, clark, lambert

Got 24 trades left and 140k in the bank.

im getting in d mckenzie. But do i upgrade my fwds/mids/backs. I was thinking goddard for fwds. beams,parker, or someone for mids. Tmac for defence. Not sure which area to upgrade though? ???

    Ethan · 11/05/2015 at 17:23

    you may have missed the goddard train but maybe later in the season he may slip some form. Parker looks to be back but will titch be taking his midfield role meaning he's spending more time forward

      Ryan · 11/05/2015 at 17:37

      Goddard only went up like 25k and 500k for a premo im happy to pay for. He will be more consistent then buddy.

        derek · 11/05/2015 at 18:19

        get Goddard. Not much in the way of premiums in the forwards. you'll regret not getting him now.

Brett · 11/05/2015 at 17:24

G'day community.
Looking to trade out Rich this week. Currently have 240k in the bank. Looking at trading in Priddis as a bit of a POD or JPK.
Want to hear your thoughts.
Cheers.

Tofor · 11/05/2015 at 17:26

Rich to (Tom Mitchell) "Titch"… One has peaked, one is potentially about to take off…
Would you do it?

    Tofor · 11/05/2015 at 17:27

    It's a massive gamble.. might be safer to go Rich to a proven Premium and slaughter a rookie..

    pat · 11/05/2015 at 21:30

    money thinking i like it, but if you want titch as a keeper dont think he is, unless your looking for a person who will average 80-90 from here on in

      Swans2012 · 12/05/2015 at 07:31

      Everyone does remember torch averaging 90 odd in his rookie year don’t they? Not a big stretch to see him averaging 105 two years later, fully fit and in a winning team. I think 95 average from him from here will do for f6/f7 cover especially if your using the &$$$ savings to upgrade elsewhere.

        Swans2012 · 12/05/2015 at 07:32

        Not torch, titch, dam autocorrect

          Tofor · 12/05/2015 at 08:40

          Get Around the torch!
          It's possible. With Heeney out and his current form, his JS looked decent.
          If he averaged at least 90, he'd be a reasonable f6 spot.

tom · 11/05/2015 at 17:40

is it time for Hogan to go?

    Luviboy1 · 11/05/2015 at 17:54

    77 BE for a rookie is very high, although he's proven that he can score tonnes but I doubt this will happen against Hawthorn this week. Still to much of a risk in leaking cash for me.

      Traderlyf · 11/05/2015 at 18:12

      ill be going hogan to goddard this week i think

    derek · 11/05/2015 at 18:20

    I think so. unless you have other problems. not much to trade down to is problem.

    Tofor · 12/05/2015 at 08:41

    Hey, he could line up against Shoenmakers this week and kick 14.

Josh · 11/05/2015 at 17:47

Sloane for priddis or Neale or Parker ??

    @Popey_99 · 11/05/2015 at 18:08

    Priddis is the best value for what we know he can produce. The other two are fairly risky.

      Jodh · 11/05/2015 at 19:37

      Any other options you would consider for sloane ?

        Azza · 11/05/2015 at 21:09

        Rockliff.

Rob · 11/05/2015 at 17:48

Hey community need help with my trades!

BACK: Shaw, simpson, newnes, lumumba, Oxley,Saad ( mckintosh and hamling)
Mid: Fyfe, selwood, Sloane, Rich, Kennedy, Shiel, Cripps, Vanderberg( CEY, Krak, Blakely)
Ruck: Ryder, Nicnat( read)
FWD: Roughy, Martin, Bont, Hogan, Franklin,Tarrant( Lonie and lambert)

I have 10k in the bank

Cheers

    Jack · 11/05/2015 at 18:15

    Food for thought;

    Rich to Dan McKenzie
    Hogan to Gray

    Haven’t done the maths on that but but if you can afford, that’s what I would do.

    Sloane’s leaked to $513k so my plan is to either hold out until he is back or wait until something irresistible arises.

@boltie_monster · 11/05/2015 at 18:04

I have Kmac and Hogan. Do I hold, trade one or both. Already used 8 trades and have 7k in the bank so am currently thinking of downgrading one of them to a rookie.

    @Popey_99 · 11/05/2015 at 18:11

    Trade Kmac. He has a bit of cash to make, but we have 3 good rookies to downgrade to. If anything, downgrade Kmac and upgrade Hogan in coming weeks.

Traderlyf · 11/05/2015 at 18:13

i did kmac to dmac then hogan to goddard

Liam · 11/05/2015 at 18:14

Going heeney to mckenzie and sloane to priddis this week

Supercoach General · 11/05/2015 at 18:15

To Titch or not to Nitch

    pat · 11/05/2015 at 21:29

    not, will not be in best 6 averaging forwards for the season

Daniel · 11/05/2015 at 18:34

I’m in a bit of a pickle here… I have Hogan, Salem and Rich… which 2 players should I trade out this week and who for?

Cheers

    @Rem_Wah · 11/05/2015 at 19:23

    Rich to McKenzie
    Hogan to Gray (priority if you don't have him) or Tom Mitchell leaving you with cash left over

      Daniel · 12/05/2015 at 20:59

      Already have McKenzie though?

        Daniel · 12/05/2015 at 21:02

        And Gray

    Northernsoul74 · 11/05/2015 at 19:40

    Why Salem? He just scored 117.

      SideBySidebottom · 12/05/2015 at 16:07

      Salem's due to rise by $85k over the next three weeks if he averages 76.

    Ryan · 12/05/2015 at 16:11

    hogan and rich definitely

Tony · 11/05/2015 at 18:40

For those of us looking at downgrading this week, who are the best rookies to bring in ?
Already have Mckenzie . Not sure on Lever, Glenn. Would lambert be an option and leave on the pine until he is back ?
Should be straight in the team .

Cheers
Tony

    Tyler · 11/05/2015 at 19:59

    Lambert is a good option but glenn is still better I think.

wayne paul · 11/05/2015 at 18:41

rich for t mitchell only trade this we.about the same value.mitchell is on the bubble so a must this week

Seamus · 11/05/2015 at 18:41

Thoughts on a Barlow or k jack?

    @Rem_Wah · 11/05/2015 at 19:21

    Smokey: Steve Johnson – priced at approximately 425k

    SCaddict · 11/05/2015 at 19:40

    I'd keep away from both. Too speculative unless you've barely used any trades and can handle it if it doesn't work out.

shemm · 11/05/2015 at 18:42

have enough to go sloane to pendles with $160 000 left over. Should I go to priddis instead who is a player at his basement price and pocket another $90 000?

    Jonesy · 11/05/2015 at 19:13

    I'd still go to Pendelbury, you'd still have plenty left in the war chest

Rob · 11/05/2015 at 18:44

Is Rich to D mckenzie and Sloane to Gray good trades? Leaving me with 250k for next week?

Any suggestions?

    Jonesy · 11/05/2015 at 19:13

    Sounds good mate

Dan · 11/05/2015 at 18:48

I have Sloane, Rich, Hogan and mckintosh.

Who do I trade with 10k in the bank?

    Liam · 11/05/2015 at 18:52

    Sloane is out for 6 weeks. Unless you have full bench cover, trade him.

    Azza · 11/05/2015 at 19:28

    If you have bench coverage, hold Sloane for a week and trade for Rockliff.

      derek · 11/05/2015 at 19:39

      hold Sloane and trade to Rocky.

jim · 11/05/2015 at 19:07

Sloane to armitage priddis or gibbs thoughts community?

    @Rem_Wah · 11/05/2015 at 19:20

    Priddis

    derek · 11/05/2015 at 19:39

    priddis by a long way

    Crowmagnon · 11/05/2015 at 20:03

    Priddy. Easily.

Tom · 11/05/2015 at 19:16

Is it time to get rid of McIntosh, Vandenberg and Hogan? If so, which 2 need to go first

    @Rem_Wah · 11/05/2015 at 19:20

    Hogan and McIntosh are your priorities

    derek · 11/05/2015 at 19:39

    depends on how much bench cover you have in defence. Don't expect McKenzie to score that well.

Jaydos · 11/05/2015 at 19:24

With Heeney out for six weeks and not alot of mid rooks on the horizon i plan on concentrating on the other rookies.Is this logical?

    derek · 11/05/2015 at 19:38

    heeney has to go, you need to find another rookie to trade down to, or trade him to a premium. don't wait

      Tyler · 11/05/2015 at 20:02

      Why not wait? If you have cover Jaydos there's no reason to trade him out immediately. You can use him to loophole and his price isn't going anywhere. But I would get him out before he comes back

    Crowmagnon · 11/05/2015 at 20:02

    If you have sufficient midfield cover for Heeney you could hold him.

Jdogg · 11/05/2015 at 19:25

Sloane to dusty Martin or Goddard. Need the dpp.

    Crowmagnon · 11/05/2015 at 20:18

    Tough call. Whoever is cheaper.

    pat · 11/05/2015 at 21:27

    Thanks got me stumped, thats a tough, very tough question

throttlefinger · 11/05/2015 at 19:28

Spot on article, my friend.

Pass on Titch. Looking better but still don't trust that body. Because he hasn't gone 15+, the numbers look good. Think he'll be someone to bring in 2016. Not sure he can hit the 95 ave mark. Parker is a better bet, in my opinion.

    derek · 11/05/2015 at 19:37

    $70k more you get buddy. cheaper if you wait a week

      throttlefinger · 11/05/2015 at 19:39

      Hogan to Buddy next week, Dman.

Liam · 11/05/2015 at 19:30

Have to get rid of Sloane but who to go to?

Current mids: Fyfe, Pendles, selwood,JPK,Priddis,Sloane,Cripps,Miller.

Really need your help cheers?

    Crowmagnon · 11/05/2015 at 20:17

    Depending who your m9 is, you could consider upgrading one of your other lines. Nice midfield.

Traderlyf · 11/05/2015 at 19:33

am i better off going mcintosh to mckenzie with 220k in the warchest or do that trade as well as hogan to goddard with 7k left

    derek · 11/05/2015 at 19:36

    I would do both. goddard isn't going to get any cheaper

    Crowmagnon · 11/05/2015 at 20:00

    If you have the trade to spare, get Goddard now.

Jacob · 11/05/2015 at 19:34

Good article chicko
Just wondering if sloane to JPK or priddis and rich to jack steven or neale are good trades
Or
Sloane to JPK or Priddis but heeney to miller or sheed

Nicholas · 11/05/2015 at 19:38

right now i have sloane yolmen lewis heeney hogan kmac and i alrdy have the st kilda dfender from last week. really need some help with my puzzle this week

    Tyler · 11/05/2015 at 20:06

    Trade out Sloane and heeney. Hogan and kmac can wait, lewis and yolmen will be back soon as well. You could get priddis, jpk, titch, selwood or another fallen premo and get glenn in, or double upgrade if you have the cash. Good Luck mate, sounds like you'll need it over the next few weeks!

      Nicholas · 11/05/2015 at 20:40

      priddis or jpk better i have selwood and dont think titch is worth the risk

      Nicholas · 11/05/2015 at 20:41

      i can even bring in pendles

        SideBySidebottom · 12/05/2015 at 17:18

        Pendles definitely. His captaincy potential and consistency is imperative for your team.

      Dean · 11/05/2015 at 22:50

      Tyler who do you say Hogan can wait, but Heeney shouldn't , this makes no sense? Heeney is out for 4 to 6 weeks so his price wont deprecate until he plays next,

      Are you aware Hogan break even is 77 so its more than likely he will drop in price especially if he has a shocker and only scores 40 odd which could very well happen.

        Rick Grimes · 12/05/2015 at 07:12

        Hogan is averaging close to his break even. Plenty of rookies this season have had a quiet game then absolutely smashed it the next week – burning all those with itchy trade fingers (self included, I ditched Salem and Sheed last week). Personally I am trading Hogan but not because I fear he will lose value.

        Tyler · 12/05/2015 at 07:21

        I’m only saying to trade out heeney to get more playing players in. But yeah I agree with you. Heeney isn’t a must trade yet, but neither is hogan. If he gets over 77, he coupd make even more cash and he goes over 77 plenty.

    Dean · 11/05/2015 at 22:43

    Don't trade HEENEY out as he is out for 4 to 6 weeks so he wont be dropping in price. Trade out HOGAN first as he has a break even of 77 so he will drop in price this week, trade Heeney out for a GODDARD, BONTEMPLLI, DALHAUS, FRANKLIN or MITCHELL

    Secondly trade out SLOANE and get Pendlebury seeing you dont have him.

    Heeney can be traded out in the next few weeks.

      Nicholas · 11/05/2015 at 23:28

      without making trades i currently have 100k and 5 premo forwards so i think i really need to upgrade mid. my forward is franklin, goddard, martin, swan, gray tarrant hogan and clark. my mid is fyfe, sloane, selwood, griffen, lewis, cripps, vandenburg, miller, krak, cey and heeney. i cant upgrade to 2 premos as i dont have enough cash who would i downgrade hogan to?

        Tyler · 12/05/2015 at 07:24

        There aren’t many players you can trade down to. You could trade down to Lambert, Daniel or another injured fwd rookie and have them on the pine until they come back. It’s a big risk though, because if they come back from injury and don’t get a game they’re just a waste of space on your bench.

Jacob · 11/05/2015 at 19:39

Gonna avoid Titch. Going Hogan to Goddard this week instead of Titch. Why risk wasting two trades on a bloke who could get dropped at any moment when you can pick up an almost certain top 6 FWD for only 130k more.

    Top hawk · 11/05/2015 at 20:09

    Titch is such a tease. So tempted to get him in. I have Sloane and I am going to trade him out. 515 k sitting on the bench for 6 weeks? no way.

    I am considering Goddard and a few others. sparing Hogan for another week. Tough decisions this week!!!

    Cheers

paul · 11/05/2015 at 19:54

I am going,
Heeney to mc Kenzie.
Sloane to either Titch, Parker, JPK,Goddard, Barlow, or Priddis.

Sloane has to go. I cannot afford 515 K to sit idle on my bench For 6 weeks.

It's just a matter who is the best scoring player option at value for $$$$ this week.

Any suggestions appreciated.

    SCaddict · 11/05/2015 at 20:04

    JPK or Priddis would be the safest bets there.

    Tyler · 11/05/2015 at 20:11

    Best option to worst: JPK, Titch (Only if you like him), Priddis, Parker, Barlow, Goddard

    Only reason I put goddard as worst is because you will probably be able to get him cheaper later on

Crowmagnon · 11/05/2015 at 19:59

Sloane to JPK. Heeney to MacKenzie. Don't trade in Miller or sheed.

    Crowmagnon · 11/05/2015 at 20:10

    That was a reply to Jacob's comment.

T.J.M · 11/05/2015 at 20:01

Thoughts on my team please

25 trades left and 200,000 in the bank

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

I need to get rid of McIntosh, Vandenberg, Hogan and Kelly. But not sure what trades to do.

Thoughts?

    derek · 11/05/2015 at 20:26

    Team looks pretty good.

    Problem for everyone is that the rookie cupboard is pretty bare. You already have McKenzie. I'm sure they will appear.

    I think Kelly has to be traded (not sure how long he will be out for – your call). You can get Enright $498k or Birchell $476k (will cost you a bit of your warchest) or a straight swap to B Smith. Not sure who else will be top defenders this year, but those 3 are a good start.

      ryan · 11/05/2015 at 21:45

      derek if i may ask, what rank are you ? because i see you have so many good comments on here, just wondering, cheers mate

        Paul · 12/05/2015 at 11:43

        Getting abit carried away definitely, Eddie expert…knows all the moves to make and comments to go with them

    Dean · 11/05/2015 at 20:57

    What's all this BS about getting rid of McIntosh this week, there is no rush for this as his break even is only 33

    Priority this week should be HOGAN first – I'll be going HOGAN to GODDARD, BONTEMPELLI, FRANKLIN or MITCHELL.

    For your second trade this week you may want to consider going VANDERBERG to GLENN and generate yourself a lovely $210k from this.
    Or do this second trade first and then bring in a slightly more expensive forward like GODDARD, DALHAUS or FRANKLIN or any forward you prefer.

    Dean · 11/05/2015 at 21:12

    Your team is quite good considering your trades left plus the $200k in the bank.

    I think it's pointless getting rid of KELLY in defence right now even though he will be out for 4 to 6 weeks because our defence scores are so inconsistent its just driving everyone crazy.

    Having SHAW, SIMPSON, NEWNES, SAAD, OXLEY & McKENZIE – in your defence will be very much like everyone else's defence structure.

Patrick(Gab) Bullock · 11/05/2015 at 20:06

what do i do? im stumped got Minson, Bennell, Hodge, Lewis, Sloane, CEY, Nic Nat, Newnes, Hibberd, Griffen, Bartel, Van berlo, Parker, Goodes, Heeney and Bellechambers…. What do i do, ive had a terrible year and feeling like supercoach just isnt my go this year… Ranked 190286, from 205 last year having a shocker, which of these guys would most liekly go first ? thinjking Van berlo and Heeny, thoughts community

    T.J.M · 11/05/2015 at 20:22

    How do you still have all these players may I ask? Have you not traded Bartel? He has been out for weeks? Seriously dude, your in a fair bit of trouble. I don't know where to start. Probably Bartel and Heeney or Sloane

      Patrick(Gab) Bullock · 11/05/2015 at 21:15

      havent been on supercoach for about 3 weeks and this is what happens…
      i know its gonna be a rough time, but still have 28 trades, so got 2 to use each week atleast until the byes,
      after listening to your thoughts think ill start with your idea TJM and go bartel after hearing what happened to him, and sloane, lets hope minson gets a game this week and if he does ill keep him, im forced to keep the other ones. but the next 5 weeks will be big trading weeks. hopefully get my team back to where it should be

        SideBySidebottom · 12/05/2015 at 17:25

        Bartel and Sloane.

    Crowmagnon · 11/05/2015 at 20:29

    Start trading out in order of longest injury.

    Dean · 11/05/2015 at 20:37

    heeney is out for 4 weeks so no rush to trade him out because he wont be going down in price, think of trading HEENEY out when the bye rounds are upon us..

    if you have HOGAN he is the person you want to trade out first & obviously SLOANE as he is out for 4 to 6 weeks.

    The other option is you could get rid of VAN BERLO & SLOANE this week. Totally forget about trading HEENEY now as he is out for 4 to 6 weeks so put him on your bench because he isn't going to drop in value.
    If HEENEY was playing this week then definitely he would be the first one to go, so think of his injury being a blessing so you can correct more important players to bring.

    Hope that helps

    Matt - Dejong · 11/05/2015 at 21:04

    is giving up an option ?

      Crowmagnon · 11/05/2015 at 21:12

      Never! Trade arse off!

      pat · 11/05/2015 at 21:24

      never give up, just never, seriously this is supercoach, take risks Gab and one day you will be like me and be in the top 200 teams

      Bbbbb · 11/05/2015 at 21:39

      Matt do you go to patterson river?

        Matt · 11/05/2015 at 21:48

        i couldnt even tell you where that is, sorry

    Sarah · 12/05/2015 at 11:24

    Wow! Get rid of Bartel for another premo forward and Goodes for McKenzie.
    Hold all players who are able to play and deal with injuries first. Poor form you're just going to have to hope for a turn around at this stage as getting players on the field should be your priority.

Tyler · 11/05/2015 at 20:10

Best option to worst: JPK, Titch (Only if you like him), Priddis, Parker, Barlow, Goddard

Only reason I put goddard as worst is because you will probably be able to get him cheaper later on

    Glorin · 12/05/2015 at 02:36

    I am thinking the same way on goddard. He was highly overpriced at the start and will fluctuate all season. Just as likely to drop a 60 this week.

Jeremy · 11/05/2015 at 20:16

Quick poll:
Option 1: Out Sloane, Heeney; In Ward, McKenzie. 230k in kitty.
Option 2: Out Sloane, Hogan; In D Smith, and Franklin.
Option 3 Out Sloane, Hogan; In Mumford, and one of Rough/Buddy/Bont.

    Crowmagnon · 11/05/2015 at 20:23

    How would you get Mummy in with those trades? Mummy, Buddy looks good.

      Jeremy · 11/05/2015 at 20:48

      Swing Gray into mids for Sloane, Bellchambers into forward line for Hogan, Mummy into rucks mate.

        Crowmagnon · 11/05/2015 at 21:10

        Nice.

    derek · 11/05/2015 at 21:42

    2. Smith & Buddy are in my final team. However you can wait on both, as you will get them cheaper next week.

Derma147 · 11/05/2015 at 20:30

Hi community, I was thinking going
Hodge out for McKenzie
And Tom Mitchell in for hogan
Leaving me with 545k in the war chest.
How does that sound?

jacob · 11/05/2015 at 20:33

I don't see why everyone is saying KMac is a must out. Hell hover around that price at worst for the next few weeks at least (BE only 33) while we can cull guys like Vandenberg and Hogan who have much higher BEs.

    randomccliche · 11/05/2015 at 21:19

    Because of the number of scores with 4x in em.

    Northernsoul74 · 11/05/2015 at 21:45

    Wouldn't be surprised to see KMac rested this week.

    demon · 11/05/2015 at 22:40

    I hear ya, I've got hogan, rich and heeney to to get rid of first so I'll definitely be keeping him

3. votes · 11/05/2015 at 20:48

Who should I get in my midfield? can afford anyone? looking at David Mundy, Josh P kennedy and shiel, who out of those 3?

Already have fyfe, danger, selwood, pendles griffen

    Bluey · 11/05/2015 at 21:21

    JPK definately

Locked and Loaded · 11/05/2015 at 20:52

For the rare instance I think Sloane is good enough to hold. We have seen players come back earler ghan expected this year and Rory is tough as guts. I will be placing him on the pine and bring in Rockliff for Vandenberg this week. Yes he has not dropped to his base price but I am happy to take him at 490k to cover Sloanes points. When Sloane is back he is staright in and will be a great POD for at least a couple of weeks.

    Danny · 11/05/2015 at 20:55

    Brave, I like it.

      Locked and Loaded · 11/05/2015 at 21:04

      Cheers Danny sometimes its the moves you dont make that can set you apart

        Northernsoul74 · 11/05/2015 at 21:42

        I'm with you, I'm also holding.

    Dean · 11/05/2015 at 22:29

    That is just CRAZY, out of ALL the premium midfielders that have dropped dramatically in price, why in the world would you even consider bringing in Rocky this week, he has a break even of negative 200 so he will drop at least another $50,000+ this week and around $30,000 the week after especially if he scores under 100 this week.

    Practically ALL of the premium midfielders have plummeted in price apart from FYFE. If you are serious about getting Rocky in then at least wait until round 9 otherwise your just throwing cash away. I predict Rocky will be between $400,000 to $420,000 by round 9 however IF he scores another 60 or 70 in the next 2 weeks he could fall below $400,000

    Don't get me wrong, I believe Rocky is a gun that has had ALL the bad luck this season and I will be bringing him into my side once his ribs have had more time to heal. My advice is STRONGLY wait as he will drop at least $50,000 this week.

      Rocksta · 11/05/2015 at 23:22

      Agreed.
      I’m holding Sloane this week and turning him into Rocky next week.
      Could also potentially use the extra cash made by waiting the extra week to turn Cripps into another premium ( Pendles).

    Swans2012 · 12/05/2015 at 07:35

    I like it, no point trading sloane to rocky as it just puts you one premo down on everyone else trading rocky in for a fat calf. And now you’ve got me thinking maybe rocky a week early over titch…. Hmmmm interesting

      Locked and Loaded · 12/05/2015 at 11:16

      Dean I see your logic with Rocky and me like others I'm sure hardly ever execute the trade we were thinking on the Monday. Might wait on Rocky and bring in Titch purely as a nother cash cow but obviously as a potential keeper. Sloane will be held though at least for a couple of weeks to re assess

    Sarah · 12/05/2015 at 11:21

    I like it. I'm thinking of upgrading Vandenberg to Selwood a week early to cover Sloane's points while he sits on my bench. Like you said, I think he's a chance to return before his round 11 bye so I'm happy to take the risk by keeping him. Next week or the week after it'll be Cripps to Rocky.

Jono · 11/05/2015 at 20:56

Is Stevie J worth a punt?????

    DECCA · 11/05/2015 at 21:21

    i strongly do, if your strapped for cash or just want to take a risk, has been a super premium for over 7 years, so will come back, after being sub think hes gotten a kick up the ass and should be working harder than ever for the cats

      derek · 11/05/2015 at 21:45

      I had him last year and it was very stressful.

        Swans2012 · 12/05/2015 at 07:36

        What Derek said, not for the faint of heart

          SideBySidebottom · 12/05/2015 at 17:35

          He fluctuates like Griffen and ocassionally misses games. Derek and Swans are on the money.

Tulendeena · 11/05/2015 at 21:00

Dusty or Titch?

    Gab · 11/05/2015 at 21:01

    dusty

    Jacob · 11/05/2015 at 21:32

    Dusty

    throttlefinger · 11/05/2015 at 21:36

    If you have the warchest, Dusty is the safer choice.

    And I never thought I'd say that about D. Martin!

Sully321 · 11/05/2015 at 21:10

Thoughts on what to do with Sloane
Thinking down to titch

    Patrick(Gab) Bullock · 11/05/2015 at 21:18

    im guessing you brought him in as a mid premium, well thats what you should be looking to get for him, my suggestions going to fallen super premiums such as priddis, selwood, kennedy, pendlebury

Ryan · 11/05/2015 at 21:21

Sloane to Pendlebury? Is Pendles going to ever drop in price or should I just splash the cash on him now?

    pat · 11/05/2015 at 21:34

    splash cash

    Westy · 11/05/2015 at 21:35

    Pendles is a great corrective trade!

Jacob · 11/05/2015 at 21:32

Not Supercoach, But how bout the Sainters!!!! Loving all these young blokes. Mckenzie looks like a gun. Strong lad, who won a number of crucial one on one contests on the weekend. He'll be good for our supercoach sides too.

pat · 11/05/2015 at 21:41

simpson, shaw, hibberd, oxley, saad, mcintosh (goodes, goddard)

fyfe, selwood, heppell, danger, kennedy, griffen, cripps, vandenburg (miller, heeny, glenn)

Mumford, bellchambers (cox)

gray, martin, swan, bennell, hogan, salem (kraqer, clark)

24 trades done, thoughts on my team,
thinking getting hogan and heeney out and bringing in mckensie and a premium in any line 550k for the premium

    @KingWinter7 · 11/05/2015 at 22:18

    Goddard in for Hogan… but you also must get Pendles

Luke · 11/05/2015 at 21:46

great article as usual chicko, would love to hear the communities thoughts on bringing in steele sidebottom as a POD this week for sloane? or are there better options that are %100 fit (maybe heppel, JPK, beams?), or is it even worth downgrading?
(have fyfe, selwood, pendles, griffen, neale)

    SideBySidebottom · 12/05/2015 at 17:39

    Sidey usually scores well after a rest but he's doubtful for this week. Apparently he's handling the ball gingerly so it's hard to imagine his tackling will be at its usual level.

Jacob · 11/05/2015 at 21:52

I like your thinking mate. Could be a massive POD and im sure his fitness is still up to scratch.

Danny · 11/05/2015 at 21:56

Little bit of advice needed, because of injury I've had to do far too much sideways trading and again will have to this week with Sloan, original plan before his prognosis was Hogan to Mackenzie (via a couple DPPs) and Rich to Pendles,

Should I still trade down Hogan to Mackenzie, Sloan to Pendles.
Or
Should I be trading up both Sloan and Rich.

I currently have 500k in the kitty, if I go the first option I will upgrade Rich to Rockliff next week.

I've been averaging around 2100-2200 but I am light on with only 4 Mid premiums currently.
Cheers.

    Luke · 11/05/2015 at 22:05

    option 1 sounds the best to me, though you could consider holding off on the hogan to mackenzie trade and see how lever goes this round, just in my opinion from watching the adelaide game, he showed signs of being a can't miss

    CashCows · 11/05/2015 at 22:19

    Why not trade Rich and Hogan, their prices will change but not sloanes. and even then, next week you could go sloane to rockliff.

      Danny · 11/05/2015 at 22:26

      I'd expect Rich to score better than my rookies this week and only drop 5-10k, but I see what you're saying

Sully321 · 11/05/2015 at 22:02

Hi community,
Thoughts on lachie Neale at 540k same price as priddis who do you think will be better at the end of the year?

    @KingWinter7 · 11/05/2015 at 22:17

    Priddis… doesn't have the likes of Fyfe, Mundy, Barlow to compete with for points

Luke · 11/05/2015 at 22:08

thinking about bringing in a fallen defender this week, who is the best option out of brodie smith, simpson and burgoyne?

    Luke · 11/05/2015 at 22:09

    also thinking about hibberd?

    Jambo · 11/05/2015 at 22:37

    Wait a week and you can get Brodie Smith under 400k.

@KingWinter7 · 11/05/2015 at 22:19

Not sure whether to upgrade Hogan to Betts or Titch….

Really close call and i'm struggling

    Matt · 12/05/2015 at 17:58

    niether, if your going to upgrade make sure its atleast a proven premium

CashCows · 11/05/2015 at 22:35

Hogan to T.Mitchell, D.Smith or T.Mcdonald(dpp swaps)?

    Donavan · 11/05/2015 at 23:20

    McDonald for mine, one of very few defenders to provide consistent output, and now proven against strong and weaker teams.

Tigertanic · 11/05/2015 at 22:47

I'm having a bit of a dilemma – I need to trade in a rookie this week so that I can build the warchest. The rookie is easy to choose right? Wrong!! I ALREADY HAVE MCKENZIE!

Who would be the #2 rookie for this week?

I'm not at all sold on Josh Glenn20. I think his job security is about as good as I am handsome (which is very, very…..veryveryvery poor).

At the moment I'm looking at BB gun Boekhorst – $156,000, scored an acceptable 66 and has a BE of 15. and has a 12 in his rolling average so should make a bit of cash in the coming rounds. Not to mention playing 3 games straight, avoiding the green two out of three and playing for a mob that, as Fitzy described, paid tribute to their mothers by playing like them. In other words, a poor side that would probably prefer to blood the young guns rather than play older crap players and lose by 40 points instead of 60.

Is it too early to get in Billy the Stretch, or another 1 game rookie? Or should I just fork out a few peanuts and go the extra 30k on Boekhorst?

    Jacob · 11/05/2015 at 23:00

    If Glenns named this week definately go with him. Still has a BE of -66 despite that score of 36.

      Luke · 11/05/2015 at 23:32

      maybe holding this week and trading out a rookie next week could be worth it as there are a few promising one-gamers who will probably line up again this weekend, such as stretch as you mentioned, and also jake lever

Donavan · 11/05/2015 at 23:12

Big upgrade week for me.

Heeney & Sloane to Pendlebury & Kennedy (Syd)

Gives me 5 premo mids on the ground (Fyfe, Pendles, Shiel, Kennedy, Priddis) with Lewis to return round 7, then its just Rockliff & maybe Ablett to round out the midfield.

Defense is still a lottery, with rookies scoring as well as the premos.

Rucks set.

3 more forward upgrades needed.

    derek · 12/05/2015 at 09:33

    nice midfield. My final team will be the same except my original plan was to keep griffin at M8, he might become Selwood or Shiel.

ThatDamnRascal · 11/05/2015 at 23:22

Sloane….Sloane…. Sloane!!!!
You were supposed to be a keeper and you've totally failed to deliver. Okay you've copped a few niggles here and there but I'm kinda glad your faced got smooshed cause it makes trading easy this week.
Out: Sloane, Hunt
In: BJ, Mckenzie
This will leave me with 219k and 22 trades which I plan to hold until the byes. Not happy with my side but content

RedFox · 11/05/2015 at 23:27

Option 1.
Heeney > McKenzie
Newton > Titch

With Sloane out I think I need a 'legitimate' premium, so Option 2. is to bite the bullet and trade

Ellis Yolmen > McKenzie
Newton > Priddis

Thoughts?

    RedFox · 11/05/2015 at 23:30

    I'm holding Sloan.

    derek · 12/05/2015 at 09:40

    why can't you do Heeney >> Mckenzie & Newton >> Priddis

    CEY will be back before Heeney.

      Nathan · 12/05/2015 at 18:22

      Not enough $

Mister_Spock · 11/05/2015 at 23:37

On the verge of giving up Community.

Must be breaking some kind of record for corrective trades this early in the season (Ablett, Wines, Scooter, Bartel, Minson, Heeney, McEvoy on form, and now Sloane). Only 21 trades heading into this round SMH

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 12/05/2015 at 02:19

    Feel your pain!!!! I'm might just double down this week which will give me over 900K and wait for the 3 weeks trade frenzy and hope for the the best! My double down would be Sloane to Glenn and R. Murphy to McKenzie??? Not sure if I will do that yet…..Might go Tmitch to sloane and and Hunt to Kmac …..not sure what I'm going to do??? 1 fcked up yr!

      AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 12/05/2015 at 02:21

      I lost Sidebottom Ablett Sloane Bartel and bennell and lewis with suspsentions….very fcking frustrating!

        AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 12/05/2015 at 02:21

        and Henderson to injury

    derek · 12/05/2015 at 09:09

    Wines might be back this week. next week for sure

Crowls · 12/05/2015 at 00:11

Need confirmation on right track guys.
B: Shaw, Lumumba, Newnes, Oxley, Saad, KK, Goodes, Mcintosh
M: Fyfe, Pendles, JPK, Ward, Beams, Heppell, Cripps, Miller, heeny krak vandenburg
F Gray, Swan, Bont, Salem, Tarrent, Hogan, Clark, Lamb
145K

will do cripps to rocky in two weeks. probably priddis as M8 is other mid trade.

been hot on Tmitch for while but JS is ????? As someone early said if you bring him in it is to be a keeper. So cash generation not the issue.

1. vandenberg > mckenzie for dpp to mids
2. hogan to titch.
3. vandenberg to glenn
4. tosh to mckenzie
5. hogan to dusty, franklin, bennell

    derek · 12/05/2015 at 09:08

    you already have 6 premiums in the guts. I would leave room for Rocky and Gaz. Your midfield is done.

    work on either forward line or defence now.

tom · 12/05/2015 at 08:15

is Parker, Kennedy, Franklin and Mitchell too many Sydney players to have in my team?

atm its either Mitchell +135k

or

Goddard but struggle to upgrade next week

thoughts?

    derek · 12/05/2015 at 09:06

    choice between Mitchell & Goddard, I would go Goddard anyday.

Freddy · 12/05/2015 at 08:55

really need some help with my midfiled. only have two premos and two mid pricers, followed by krakouer, brayshaw, mckenzie and heeney
any advice??

    derek · 12/05/2015 at 09:04

    what is your full team + cash

      Jonesy · 12/05/2015 at 10:51

      give up

JustinB · 12/05/2015 at 08:55

Is anyone else holding onto Sloane for a week then trading him out next? I feel trading in mckenize and t mitchell is priority this week.

Liam · 12/05/2015 at 09:10

My team:
DEF: Shaw, SImpson, Higgins, Newnes, Mcintosh, Saad (goodes, hamling)
MID: Pendles, Fyfe, Sloane, Griff, Swallow, Rich, Vandenberg, Miller (Ellis Yolmen, Mckenzie, Krakouer)
RUC: Maric, Nic Nat (cox)
FWD: Dusty, Goddard, Swan, Wingard, TBC, Tarrant (Hogan, Clark)

I went heeney to mckenzie this week and i now have 120k in the warchest.

I have 1 more trade, should i trade sloane or rich or hogan??
Would love to know your thoughts

Cheers

    God · 12/05/2015 at 09:43

    rich has to go, he is copping too much attention and will drop in value this week. sloane isnt going to change in value so hold and trade him to rocky next week.

Liam · 12/05/2015 at 09:18

Thoughts on my tea please:
DEF: Shaw, Murphy,Higgins,Oxley,Saad,Goodes Bench: Mcintosh,Mckenzie
MID: Pendles,Fyfe,Selwood,Sloane,Priddis,JPK,Cripps,Miller Bench: VDB,Lambert,CEY
RUC :Goldy,Nic Nat Bench:Cox
Fwd: Swan,Gray,Buddy,Salem,Tarrant,Clark Bench:Krak,Hogan

    Locked and loaded · 12/05/2015 at 09:23

    Downgrade hogan to lever via DPP

      derek · 12/05/2015 at 09:37

      that would bring Higgins into the forward line, I would leave him in defence. if there are no rookies to downgrade to, how much cash do you have to upgrade this week?

        CashCows · 12/05/2015 at 10:45

        Not higgins but mckenzie to mid.

    Blueprime · 12/05/2015 at 13:35

    Sloane to Parker.

General Soreness · 12/05/2015 at 09:47

Adam Saad out injured. Not sure for how long.

    Danners16 · 12/05/2015 at 13:01

    1 week, confirmed on AFL website

Charlesy · 12/05/2015 at 10:12

Community can I give you my humble thoughts on Sloane? I’m gonna keep him on the bench and here’s why. Blokes like him don’t miss 6 for broken cheek bones. Wait for two weeks and reassess.

    Simo · 12/05/2015 at 10:29

    Hi Charlesy, my thoughts are similar, already have Lewis on the pine though….I was thinking that we would be back earlier than expected but was also thinking of downgrading Heeney this week, upgrade Vandenberg to a fallen premo like a Barlow or Johnson, hold a week on Sloane and trade to Selwood once his price bottoms out.

      Charlesy · 12/05/2015 at 10:55

      Hi simo, I’ve got Lewis too mate. Keeping both he and Sloane and slaughtering Ellis yolman earlier than I wanted for Tom Mitchell. Means I’ve got a full midfield with Lewis and Sloane to come back. Mitchell will then hopefully be dpp protection. I like your plan too mate. It’s a challenge this year that’s for sure!

Charlesy · 12/05/2015 at 10:18

In further good news it’s being reported that Adam Saad from Gold Coast will miss this week with injury. Not sure what it is or how long he’s out. I’ve got him so will have to play brown and Mc Kenzie. How challenging is this year?!

    Rick Grimes · 12/05/2015 at 10:28

    Does that make Glenn a certainty to start? I’ll have to put McIntosh on the field, hope he isn’t rested.

      General Soreness · 12/05/2015 at 10:33

      Glenn just limped off at training injured.

        derek · 12/05/2015 at 10:39

        can't find anything saying how long Saad will be out for.

          Charlesy · 12/05/2015 at 10:58

          Hi Derek. Me either mate but it’s all over Twitter that Eade has said he’s out. I’ve got a day off work, can you tell?! Lol

          General Soreness · 12/05/2015 at 11:42

          minor hammy, could only be a week.

        Gareth · 12/05/2015 at 11:26

        you fair dinkum?

          Gareth · 12/05/2015 at 11:26

          about Glenn?

            General Soreness · 12/05/2015 at 11:41

            Yes!

Josh · 12/05/2015 at 10:26

Hey guys, thoughts on these 2 trades. Sloane to Dangerfield and Heeney to Mckenzie?

    derek · 12/05/2015 at 10:43

    I like. Dangerfield should get more points without Sloane playing. Crows have a few easy games coming up. as long as you are willing to keep Dangerfield until the end?

    SCaddict · 12/05/2015 at 10:58

    It may mean that he gets more midfield time but it also could mean he may get even more opposition attention with hard tags that had been going to Sloane instead. Hard to say whether the end result will be a net gain in points but he does look reasonably priced at $520K.

    SideBySidebottom · 12/05/2015 at 18:27

    Can't see Danger as a top ten mid at year's end.

Kempy · 12/05/2015 at 11:28

Looking for some thoughts here team

Sloane -> Boak
Hogan -> Titch
or
Sloane -> Stevie J (That value)
Hogan -> Goddard

    Danners16 · 12/05/2015 at 13:11

    1st one, I wouldn't be jumping on the Stevie J bandwagon just yet

murray · 12/05/2015 at 11:52

I have leuy and heeney who have to go this week. My options are

heeney to mckenzie
leuy to sandilands or nic nat

OR
heeney to mckenzie
leuy to t mitchell (via TBC dpp)

OR
Leuy to goddard (via TBC dpp)
hogan to mckenzie (via krakeour dpp)

Option 1 gives me stability in rucks with TBC backup in fwd line
Option 2 means TBC is R2 and can make cash with Mitchell
Option is the most ambitious but means TBC is R2 but get premo (keeper) in Goddard

Thoughts??

    Danners16 · 12/05/2015 at 13:13

    3. and go Heeney to Stretch next week

      murray · 12/05/2015 at 14:12

      thanks,

RTK · 12/05/2015 at 12:09

Whats everyones thoughts on PREMO MID

I have fyfe, pendles, JPK, selwood, danger.

Out of priddis/ beams/ boak/ hannerz/ neale/ shiel.

WHICH ONE SHOULD I GET?

    Danners16 · 12/05/2015 at 13:11

    Priddis, a know reliable premium midfielder

      Matt · 12/05/2015 at 18:00

      would be either beams or priddis, id go beams as after that win it could atleast kickstart brisbanes season and after 6 weeks with the team may just be starting to gell with them

Robbie · 12/05/2015 at 12:14

Trading rich this week.

Have 518k to spend on a mid.

Tossing up between Harvey, Parker, Barlow, Ebert and mitchell.

Would love to know your thoughts

Cheers

    Liam · 12/05/2015 at 12:14

    harvey to later swing into your forward line.

    derek · 12/05/2015 at 13:06

    I'd suggest you don't buy your premium midfielders based on what you can afford, you will end up with someone you didn't particularly want (years gone past that is how my team ended up looking). Only get the ones that you genuinely want to have as year long keepers. If you cant afford them this week, wait and get them when you can.

    My Final midfield will hopefully look something like: Gaz, Rocky, Fyfe, pendlebury, JPK, Selwood, Priddis, Griffin/Beams

    if I can't bring any of them in as a trade up, I wait, maybe fix up my forward line instead.

    don't rush your selections.

      Ryan · 12/05/2015 at 16:15

      im in the same situation though and rich has to go this week hes leaking cash so im tossing up whether to go a mundy or someone (cant afford pendles) or a bit lower in barlow or parker and they would all be decent d7/8 come season end

    Danners16 · 12/05/2015 at 13:10

    I kind of disagree with Derek, you probably should rush you premo selections to get a better premium team quicker, although if there is someone like a Selwood next week, I would wait on. But if you really need one of those names, I would say either Ebert or Mitchell as I would suppose you would already have about 3-4 round 12 bye mid premiums

Sam Loy · 12/05/2015 at 12:45

All right. If I've learnt anything from this fantastic community it's that there are no hard and set rules in Supercoach. Fortune favours the brave and all that. The Bruyn Manoeuvre is a case in point.
The "rule" I want to break is a side ways trade.
Watching Swan for the last two rounds, I think he is done. Finished. Nothing more in the tank. His scoring has been ordinary lately, and I don't think he's got what it takes. I reckon a lot of Supercoaches will be looking to moving him on soon.
I'm seriously considering going Swan -> Titch.
This bags me a bit of cash and should increase my points by at least 20 (if I'm right about Swan's stinkiness).
What do people think?

    Brookesy · 12/05/2015 at 13:00

    I agree with your assessment but would avoid a sideways trade. Mitchell's somewhat unsure job security means you may well be trading from one problem to another. If Swan were injured, I would say do it. Maybe look to bringing in more proven premiums so that Swan becomes a swing man/bench cover by the end of the season. That is what I am looking to do.

      derek · 12/05/2015 at 13:08

      Who did Bruyn trade Cloke to?

        Cam_H · 12/05/2015 at 13:34

        Steven Johnson

    Danners16 · 12/05/2015 at 13:15

    Big call, if you have trades in the bag, I would do it (25+), if less, it is not worth it. Just remember, he is still averaging 100

      derek · 12/05/2015 at 13:42

      Sidebottom back this week or next. how will that affect swan?

        Locked and Loaded · 12/05/2015 at 14:18

        Will help Swan in my opinion remember he is a forward this year if he avearges 100 its a win. I like the sacks on ya but wouldn't touch him

    Sam Loy · 12/05/2015 at 21:40

    Thanks for your thoughts, community. Got some pondering to do.

Jesse · 12/05/2015 at 13:04

Thoughts please:

Sloane – Titch

TBC – Mummy

Then hold for a while.

    Danners16 · 12/05/2015 at 13:08

    Sounds good

Previously On Lost · 12/05/2015 at 13:09

I will not be going to tom mitchell. I have one spot left to upgrade onfield and I will wait a few weeks for Lids o be in the low 400s in a few weeks and snap him up for F6. Lids has better JS and scoring potential.

But if i had a few onfield rookies up forward, I would potentially grab t-mitch

rip · 12/05/2015 at 13:09

Sloane Out.

Watson, Boak or Dangerfield?

    Locked and Loaded · 12/05/2015 at 14:19

    Would sau Jobe but with the latest saga will say neither of those three. Parker for me

Danners16 · 12/05/2015 at 13:22

Great article Chicko! I won't be getting Tom Mitchell, instead last week I got T.Adams, but if I waited a week, I would have gotten Mitchell.
Well being in the top 1000 I would like to win Supercoach, but this year I have done my planning and I will be doing a shark move in Jock's magazine by trying to get a premo team as quick as possible. So I am going to HOLD L.Hodge and trade away. By doing this I should have about 13 trades left in the bank and a premo team by round 10.
This week I'm doing
Vandenberg-B.Smith (switch McKenzie)
McIntosh-Schade (already have D.McKenzie)
This leaves me with $50,000 exactly.
Thoughts community?

    derek · 12/05/2015 at 13:49

    bold move. most of the shoal will get the premiums in over the bye rounds. how will your team cope over the bye period.

      Danners16 · 12/05/2015 at 14:42

      Players won't be playing some weeks due to the bye

        Matt · 12/05/2015 at 21:39

        how many premos have you got now ? and how many trades

Ryan · 12/05/2015 at 14:04

who should i trade in for rich?
mundy
sheil
grey
sloane
barlow
parker
t.mitchell

?????

    Ryan · 12/05/2015 at 17:49

    anyone?

      Danny · 12/05/2015 at 19:10

      Parker lowest price he'll be this season and his form will continue to improve baring injury.

        Jono · 12/05/2015 at 19:50

        Sloane???? Fractured cheek no good to trade in

murray · 12/05/2015 at 14:14

thoughts on ebert as a trade in and premo keeper?

Rick Grimes · 12/05/2015 at 14:14

Saad out. Probably only a week

Locked and Loaded · 12/05/2015 at 14:22

Guys Parker is about to explode I will be doing all I can to get him in this week!!

Gareth · 12/05/2015 at 15:21

Any update on Josh Glenn injury

Blueprime · 12/05/2015 at 15:31

Agree. Brought in Parker for Heeney.

Auxafembel13 · 12/05/2015 at 17:27

Thinking going Hogan to DMac, Vandenberg to Mitchell
Leaves me with 400k
Thoughts?

Table Clothes · 12/05/2015 at 20:24

AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 12/05/2015 at 23:44

Who would be the best premo for sloane?

jordanschoell · 13/05/2015 at 20:16

T.mitchell or M.duncan
