Chicko’s Check In – Scratch that Titch?

Published by Jock on

Chicko - elite fantasy analyst

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

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

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

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

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

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

Probably is, but a much cheaper version

BackYardPunter

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

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

Spooners

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

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

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

^^^^^ Do This!

Chicko

Agree with General, get upgrading ASAP Supercoach General!

Supercoach General

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

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

Girdle

Don’t think……DO!

Supercoach General

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

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

General Soreness

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

Completely agree on all counts, General.

Chicko

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

@gurks31

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

Luke

Thoughts on keeping Sloane?

Patch

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

Cozza

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

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

@Rem_Wah

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

Patch

Nice Chicko. The numbers look tasty!

Chicko

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

Cozza

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

Handbalł to kick ratio I think I was annoyed aswell

Girdle

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

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

Swans2012

Also efficiency, contested possessions etc

randomcliche

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

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

derek

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

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

Sarah

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

Hoops

I had him on my bench and he goes bang

Swans2012

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

Jack

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

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

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

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

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

r2d2

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

T Mitch

scrofl

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

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

Danners16

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

derek

classic fence paint move.

murray

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

northernsoul74

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

murray

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

Harry

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

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

Harry

Cheers. Who do u think is the better option

General Soreness

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

Jacobs.

derek

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

Got to trade, Mumford and Jacobs are good options

Rick Grimes

I'm thinking either:

Heeney > McKenzie
Hogan > Titch

or

Vandenberg > McKenzie
Hogan > Goddard

???

murray

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

Wattsieesq

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

General Soreness

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

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

Rocky so tasty!

Chicko

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

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

1st, Heeney is out for a while

derek

Can you go Heeney to Mckenzie & Hogan to Goddard?

Rick Grimes

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

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

AMERICANMAGPIE1

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

derek

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

mattforrest8

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

Tough one, I would say Goddard only just

derek

Goddard by a fair margin

Zilla

Vandenburg? Cut or keep? Not sure…

Chicko

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

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

Danners16

I think he needs to go

UDA

One more week

Shayne

Thoughts on T Mitchell v D Shiel

jimmyjim

Shiel

jimmyjim

You guys like L Neale or JPK better ? Torn.

shemm

jpk for sure

Danners16

JPK, more reliable

Sarah

JPK. Has proven scoring history.

Bailey

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

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

shemm

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

Should i trade in T Mitchell or D Smith

Danners16

Smith, more reliable, better job security

@Rem_Wah

Definitely Devon Smith

Nathan

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

shemm

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

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

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

Luviboy1

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

shemm

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

derek

Fyfe by a fair margin

AMERICANMAGPIE1

It's official Sloane out 4-6 weeks

Luviboy1

Source?

Harry

Adelaide website

AMERICANMAGPIE1

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

Liam

Heeney to mckenzie
Swallow to Priddis

Are these good trades??

Luviboy1

Solid.

Luviboy1
Jonesy

What to do with Sloane?

Luviboy1

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

Traderlyf

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

northernsoul74

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

correctional trade needed. don't hesitate.

AMERICANMAGPIE1

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?

derek

Trade. you have to.

Jack

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

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.

Leon

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

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

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

Goddard was at bottom last week

Glorin

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Vandenberg or Rich to JPK or Priddis?

Ethan

Rich first. Seeming to get the attention

Tyler

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

Caz

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

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

derek

+1

SCaddict

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

This is the plan, out next week for rocky.

Azza

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

Swans2012

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

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

Luviboy1

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

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

Ethan

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

FootyFanatic

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

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

Upgarding Heeney by the way.

Jack

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

Traderlyf

JPK more reliable

Ryan

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

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

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

derek

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

Brett

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

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

Tofor

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

pat

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

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

Not torch, titch, dam autocorrect

Tofor

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

is it time for Hogan to go?

Luviboy1

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

ill be going hogan to goddard this week i think

derek

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

Tofor

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

Josh

Sloane for priddis or Neale or Parker ??

@Popey_99

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

Jodh

Any other options you would consider for sloane ?

Azza

Rockliff.

Rob

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

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

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

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.

i did kmac to dmac then hogan to goddard

Liam

Going heeney to mckenzie and sloane to priddis this week

Supercoach General

To Titch or not to Nitch

pat

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

Daniel

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

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

Daniel

Already have McKenzie though?

Daniel

And Gray

Northernsoul74

Why Salem? He just scored 117.

SideBySidebottom

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

Ryan

hogan and rich definitely

Tony

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

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

wayne paul

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

Seamus

Thoughts on a Barlow or k jack?

@Rem_Wah

Smokey: Steve Johnson – priced at approximately 425k

SCaddict

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

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?
