Chicko’s Check In – Mmmmm donuts…

Published by Jock on

Chicko - elite fantasy analyst

Dear Supercoach God, I write this open letter to beg for your forgiveness. You have taken many a good man, be thy named Lewis or Hodge, they did not turn the other cheek, and they were taken. This week you have sacrificed Sloane, Cripps and young lambs Salem, Lonie, B Smith and B Brown. I am not sure what sins I have committed, but please do not take thy Fyfe away via his reporting for a random trip. We all slip sometimes our dear SC lord. As Lekdog has said, Fyfe Is Life. Through my open mocking of your disciples (players) with an abundance of hair and those that have been christened with ginger pubage, it seems I have personally angered thy Champion Data Lord Up High. Would all be forgiven if I spent some alone time in the confessional and said the great prayer? Would all be forgiven if I said ten Hail Garys? Please dear Supercoach lord, I beg of your mercy. Your humble servant, Chicko.

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

Apologies community, I had to start with that letter to the SC gods as it appears I  have poked the bear. You may recall my shaming of players with too much hair, (okay, mainly Cotchin) and players with ranga heritage, and it has come back to bite me like a snake on the nurries. Just this weekend we have seen men with Solomon styled bouffants rack up monster scores – check this out: Curling Wand Priddis 196, Manicured Bangs Cotchin 162, Wolfman Fyfe 146, Magnificent Mullet Maric 139 and then you have the red tinged variety with Orange Roughy 145 and Sauce Jacobs 130! That is a two fingered salute of the highest order my dear friends.

It’s been another weekend of absolute carnage and those who have dodged bullets will undoubtedly shoot up the rankings. It looks like scores of barely 2,000 will be quite common, but those with scores of 2,200 or 2,300 and above will rocket up the rankings. One of the inner sanctum and JR pre-season contributor, in the great man General Soreness, smashed out a 2,389 and is now at the very sharp end of the rankings at 38. Well done General – go you good thing!! For me this weekend, I had $1m of prime midfield meat sitting on the pine (Sloane and Lewis), so knew I would be in for some short term pain, in the hope for some long term gain but then came the news that Cripps was a late withdrawal thus this weekend witnessed my first  sampling of an on-field Krispy Kreme donut….hence the title. Let me just say, it wasn’t at all pleasing to the ol taste buds.

So what is this week’s dilemma?

After lambasting myself last week for trading out Salem, his hamstring went ping and he scored a lowly 16 for those coaches who kept him. Then we saw the clash of heads from Saint Nick and Brodie Smith who scored 22 and 16 respectively. I have Smith firmly on my radar to pick up in a few weeks if he can get a good run at it. Young lamb Lonie also out with his score on 3 and sadly it looks like Jaensch and Mitch Duncan will be in for long lay-offs.

Last week I went Heeney to Dmac and, as per the central topic of last week’s Check-In, I went with Barry Mitchell’s-son. I traded Hogan to Titch and at this early stage it looks like I may have pulled the right rein as Hulk was a late out whilst Titch pumped out a rather pant swelling 128. I had a tweet during the week asking if Sloane to Priddis, Heeney to Dmac, or Hogan to Titch would be good trades. As I just mentioned, I went with the latter two trades for the Chumps……apologies Jedd! Didn’t Priddis absolutely light it up with his 196. I’ve decided to hold Sloane but am re-visiting that decision after this week’s rectal examination.

We have plenty of plump  cows ready for the axe, the question is will you downgrade or upgrade or both? For me, it looks like the time has come to say farewell to Vandenberg (a breakeven of 98) whilst the clock is ticking for the likes of  Oxley (breakeven of 95), Mitch Clark (breakeven 39) and K-Mac (who may survive another week whilst Saad remains injured). For those that kept Salem, it may now be time to say goodbye. Lonie may also have run his race.

I suspect there are a lot of coaches with decent warchests and there will be some upgrading going on this week. This is the nub of my dilemma this week – which players should we be looking at to bring into our squads and boost our scoring power?

So what am I thinking about this week?

This week, I am simply focused on upgrades. For the past two weeks I have mentioned both BJ Goddard and JPK and will be bringing one of them in, if not both of them. Just need to think about the balance of the squad as my back line is giving my sphincter some vice like tightening – Tom McDonald might be the answer to all your problems down back! Read the Dex Files on Tmac right here.

Other notable big scores this week included: Luke Parker back to his best with a 148, Beams a salivating 141, Lids The Barometer for the Tigers at 133, T-mac another 120+ score, JPK had another ton with 122, Buddy 119 and BJ went at 114. There are a couple of very tasty fallen premiums on the horizon with Selwood at $532k and a breakeven of 125 and Rocky at $447 with a breakeven of 79. HOWEVER, depending on how Rockliff scores, he may be available at under $400k come Round 10 – that is unbelievable buying right there! It’s all about balance fellow supercoaches. Lever is the only downgrade target of any note on the bubble this week, just not sure he is worth it. Lots of dilemmas, but I am focused on upgrades this week. I have a warchest and I am willing to spend it!

 

Over to you community, the poll this week is, who will you upgrade to this week?

Love your work Chicko

Chicko

Thanks Liam old mate, hope the gods have been kind to you.

Johny

Rocky;s role seems different this year. It seems Beams and Redden have taken his job and he is spending more time up forward. Should buyer beware?

Blackie White

Given the freakish injury run Rocky’s had, we probably can’t draw too many conclusions on his role for now.
But pretty sure Leps & Lions cannot afford to not have him playing midfield, if he is fit enough.
Still though, may be a slow recovery from two concussions, as with Brodie Smith, so slow recovery back to gun scoring?

Luke

1 concussion, other was ribs for memory

Swans2012

Ever broken a rib? Sore for ages, reckon it'll be coming good any day now

Willys Guns

Only playing forward for fitness, 3rd wk back jump on, I am

Wheels1987

with his price i think you just have to have him.

Tyler

Rocky played most of his U18s as a forward due to a bad broken leg he suffered the season before, so don't be surprised if he bags a haul of goals, hes a very good mark overhead too.

General Soreness

Chicko, great article as always mate, love the open letter mate reckon you have captured the thoughts of many a supercoacher.

Chicko

Thanks General! You have managed to escape the wrath and I hope you keep on that wave mate! Massive chance is the General!

Lime

mcintosh >>>> Yeo? Quite keen on this trade because of the Eagles Form and Yeo's new role for the Eagles generating much higher scores for him

r2d2

Do you have Oxley ? If so could go ox to Yeo ?

Youngy_

I still think Yeo needs to prove himself.

BundyBear

I think yeo has proved himself. There are others that need to start playing. I think Yeo is in great form and very worthy of a good look. Im getting him in. Lots of upside. Playing like a premo for midprice value. But what would i know. Eagles for the flag. Dockers going down. Just saying

Danners16

McGovern wasn't playing, I wouldn't be looking at Yeo just yet, probably look elsewhere

Swans2012

Doesn't McGovern play in defence? Yeo is a hard out midfielder now, if I had the space this week I'd bring him in….

BundyBear

I have watched Yeo for the last 3 weeks. No more looking. he is in.

PreviouslyOnLost

If anything, McGovern not playing bodes better for Yeo. Yeo played through the middle and didn't get stuck as a key defender with McGovern (and the others) out.

Danners16

Sorry guys I thought Yeo was still playing in the back half, might be worth a look then

Wheels1987

i would hold Kmac for now
look for others to trade out

and beware of Yeo, not a proven SC player yet

r2d2

Vandenberg to lever (via saad ) and Oxley upto y Mac …. Thoughts ???

r2d2

T Mac

Luke

Keep Isley to the bye has easy run, he will reward you

Rodger

I cannot understand how u can go vandenburg to lever?? Can u pls explain

Jack

Sub Saad into the midfield.

randomcliche

Du ring the trade there are s buttons down the side. Try em out bud.

Wheels1987

Big spend for Tmac

If you can pull off Vberg to Lever good trade.

Spend your warchest on a FWD or DEF

too many players burning trades in DEF

Kyle

Hey Guys, 189 in the bank and looking to get rid of someone for rocky this week. Does anyone know how long Ellis Yolmen is going to be out for? Don’t have enough to upgrade from Heeney but can from Ellis Yolmen.

Or should i ditch A. swallow or griffin to rocky?? Or is this stupid trading un-injured players?

🙂 please help 🙂

Marco_Polo94

No way you can downgrade elsewhere to upgrade Heeney? I'm holding CEY he won't be out much longer.

Kyle

Cheers mate how long is heeeney supposed to be out do u know?

Marco_Polo94

Errrr 4-6 off the top off my head

Youngy_

Should be back next week, but you never know.

Hold CEY he still has cash to make.

Luke

You want loose much with CEY, only has extra 70k to make, rocky at 450k at some point will be 600+

You are sacrificing $70k to make 150 and a possible 110 ave from here on out

Danners16

Check if CEY is in the teams this week, then make a decision. I'm sick of Griffen and I will be getting rid of him

Wheels1987

hold Swallow and Griffen
i have Swallow but we must hold.

Griffen is the same. he will pull out a 130+ when you trade him out.

Rocky is so cheap with your warchest you could easility upgrade a rookie.

If you have held Ellis-Yolmen, rumor is that is will play this week so if you still have him. HOLD

Muzz

thoughts on Oxley to Yeo? and cash in on Vandenberg to someone for some money in the kitty…

Wheels1987

avoid Yeo at this stage, not a proven SC player yet

Marco_Polo94

What's the go with Joshua Glenn? Valid downgrade option this week? Or is that a long term injury? Love the article I'm upgrading 3 and downgrading 1 over the next two weeks.

Wheels1987

He is a good player. wait and see if he is named this week

Mozz

This week i'm going
Oxley –> McDonald
Sloane –> Rocky

Youngy_

That's what I would be doing if I still had sloane.

Good Solid Trades

Wheels1987

Sloan – Rocky good
Oxley – Tmac bad

Liam

is it worth bringing in a ruckman like mummy or goldy,
or saving a bit of cash and going with blicavs?

Marco_Polo94

I reckon you've missed the boat with Blicavs. And goldy for that matter. Bringing in a fallen premo in Mummy could be your best bet.

Youngy_

Agree with Marco.

Mummy is your best option

Wheels1987

i agree with marco polo

randomcliche

Jacobs and mummy play each other this week. Jacobs has the lower breal even. I’ve gone Jacobs But think the two are virtually substituteable. Both are better than goldy for the price.

Youngy_

Have we missed the train on players like McDonald, Goddard, Priddis, Titch

I wanna bring these players in, but don't want to lock in a loss.

Deesnuts

Goddard and Priddis are being traded into my team this week. If they can keep up the scoring for that price they are both top 6 in there position and should stay there for the whole season.

Wheels1987

Yes
look for value elsewhere

sorry to say but you missed the train and you dont wanna lock in a loss against the rest of SC

look at someone like Keiran Jack

Ethan

Should I aim to get Tom McDonald next week

The only way I could get him is going a double downgrade this week ( Lonie–>de goey via dpp and Macintosh to lever) then upping oxley to McDonald

Wheels1987

Mcdonald is a train you have missed mate.

look for other options

Ethan

is lever worth jumping on still?

SideBySidebottom

Lever's on the bubble. This is the time to get him if you want a defence downgrade.

Ethan

so out of mcintosh and oxley who should go?

SideBySidebottom

Most are selling Oxley, but I'm keeping him for point scoring and selling McIntosh.

Wheels1987

Yea
Crows have some injury concerns so if he gets the green light jump on

Luke

That's not a good thought process you have, if you saw a car for sale worth $30k for $20k, would you buy it, even if other paid $10k? Of course you would because it is still under the market value!

In essence your not loosing anything with players that you perceived are under there market value, buy them and they will reward you for your trade

General Soreness

Luke I understand your comment which is totally correct for that scenario. But add into that scenario that there is likely to be another car or two also worth $30K for $10K in the near future. Thus the thought process is fine.

scrofl

Thinking of going for a double upgrade this week.
VDB > Rocky, and Lumumumba > R. Murphy.

Thoughts?

Mr chan

Same, except I’m getting t Mac
Seen him at it and he’s the real deal

Wheels1987

hold the prince
just as likely to go big next week

BCHawks

Only 1 trade for me this week because I have used to many Oxley to Rocky via Saad.

Wheels1987

im holding Oxley. he has a decent average compared to most DEF players. as long as he keep scoring the way he is, im happy to hold, even if he dont make no more money

josh

is rocky definatley worth getting this week?
i would prefer to get him next week for cripps but just wondering if he will go up this week?

@KingWinter7

I'm probably gonna wait until after his bye

Tyler

Yeah it’d be fine to wait a week to pick him up. No garuntees he will even hit his BE this week so he might even go down more

josh

i was thinking of getting sam mitchell this week then rockliff next week for cripps
thoughts

John_Q_Smith

Not sold on Smitch as Lewis is back his week which will eat into his ball with Hodge back soon too. If you want a R11 bye player then Rocky is your man this week. You can always hold Cripps for another week or two as he should definitely make his BE of 68 against the Cats.

foxy

Gone Vandenberg to rocky and hogan to buddy. Thoughts? Think buddy is about to explode in the coming weeks

Wheels1987

i personally prefer FWD / MID players in the FWD line. but buddy is a good choice, cheap and only in 20% of teams

randomcliche

Solid.

Ashley J

Is Ibbotson to Tom Mcdonald or another back premo a good trade?

Ethan

flip a coin. you cant deny mcdonald's form, however those with him will be hoping he continoue's this way.

Wheels1987

nope
hold ibboptson

Ashley J

What about Oxley then?

SideBySidebottom

Oxley's a popular rookie to cash out this week. I'm holding him longer due to his scoring ability.

Wheels1987

hold all defenders
theres no urgency there and even though ox has a high BE he can reach it this week. hes as good as any other DEF

MKS

I'm holding Ibbotson and Trading out the rookies first. Ibbotson has scoring ability, has been scoring well in the last couple rounds. Worth Holding.

I N Pieman

Certainly was a massive rectal examination Chicko. Copped a mauling from the gods on Saturday. So many pricks to trade but I can only get rid of 2. Vandencrap first head to be chopped.

Chicko

Believe me Pie, I feel your pain! Vandy out the door for me, closely followed by Oxley.

Skindog

Vandencrap(as you put it) is gone for me to Pieman as well as Hogan for two upgrades for I have $524,000 in chest,, now who's it gonna be????

Rob

Hey community!

I have 249K in the bank and I am looking to downgrade Oxley to a rookie. Can get any position Due to DPP Any suggestions?

I will have around 400k after that trade which will be used to get any Midfield player ( maybe Titch, Priddis, Heppell, Lewis etc.)

Next week might have 150k in the bank which will allow me to go Cripps to Pendels

Thoughts?

@KingWinter7

Only rookie that we can look at this week is Lever. He's around 160k though which is a bit annoying

Traderlyf

levers really the only player on the bubble, also glenn if he is named but his JS isnt the best

Wheels1987

hold oxley if you can.

i went

Hogan and Vandenberg OUT
Rockliff and K.Jack IN

$20 k left in the warchest.

Rocky speaks for himself

Kieran Jack on the other hand has bottomed out in price and is a huge POD.

thoughts community???

Tofor

I like it.
Went Vandenberg to Rockcliff myself.
I wonder if K Jack can get it done this year..?

Wheels1987

im hoping he can
dnot think hannebry will keep it up and JPK is up and down

Liam

Vandenberg to Rocky or Selwood??

@KingWinter7

Selwood. Still not sold on Rocky

Tyler

Rocky is better value. Think about it
Start of the season Rocky was at 720k while selwood was at around 620k. Now Rocky is UNDER 500k while selwood is at 530k. Rocky for me

BKW

Rocky this week, Selwood next week

Jacko1998

im going watson up from vandenberg next week.

Wheels1987

Rocky.

Get Selwood next week as he has a BE of 125

Trab Pukcip

Has anyone given any thought to Bryce Gibbs? I know it might be mad to even contemplate looking at carlton players but he has been known to bang out a big score and is currently $125K under his starting price tag! Risky pick but is better than a $445k player that's for sure!

@KingWinter7

Playing for a shocking team and very inconsistent. Surely you'd go to Rocky over him

Trab Pukcip

Naturally but thinking of those that have a heap of injuries that may be looking at 2 trades! Will be pretty easy to make 2 trades this week and wont cost much $$ Could go Brodie Smith and Griffen to Rocky and Gibbs for the price of a few bag of skittles!

Wheels1987

i was going to get him this week

but

I have gone with
Hogan and Vandenberg OUT
Rockliff and K.Jack IN

$20 k left in the warchest.

Rocky speaks for himself

Kieran Jack on the other hand has bottomed out in price and is a huge POD.

thoughts community???

Tofor

Don't do it.
I have him in my SC Draft side..
He makes me sick.. he's been putrid this year by his standards/ ability. I keep offering trades to other teams but nobody will take him. Carlton are in trouble, doubt he can get the job done.

randomcliche

Agreed that there could be value there. He did start to lay a few tackles this week. Will he avg 110 from now to seasons end??? I’ve gone rocky.

Liam

Thoughts on de goey community?
Not many rookie options.

@KingWinter7

Too expensive. No for me

Swans2012

Great name, bad price! That's a no de goey!

Wheels1987

$202 k
BE of 22

= NO NO NO

Tom

Who needs to go first?

Oxley, N.Brown, V-Berg, Hogan?

only have 70k so what would you do?

Tyler

vandenburg first, hogan second, brown next then oxley last

SideBySidebottom

Yeah, agree. I don't actually want Oxley or Saad to go at this stage. Averaging over 80's almost enough for a D6 or even a D5.

Sam Loy

If all of those players get their average next week, Vandenburg will lose the most, then Oxley, Brown, and Hogan would stay about even. Depends who you think is more capable of hitting their average given the opponents and their form.

Tofor

In My Opinion…
V-Berg, Hogan, N Brown, Oxley in that order.
I just wouldn't get rid of Oxley..? He has averaged over 80. I'd keep him for now as there's few defenders averaging better for an affordable price.

Tom

Thoughts on Burgoyne?

Sam Loy

Had him since R1, and I picked him because of his durability (2014, 22 games; 2013, 20; 2012, 21; 2011, 21) and consistency. However, he has had a few shockers this year. I imagine the return of Lake will free up Gibson a bit, and this could affect Burgoyne's scoring.

Emma

I have had him from day 1, but with Lewis and Hodge back week after his scoring will slow down. I don't think he will be top 8 defender.

MOC

Who would be worth getting out of Glenn (providing he gets up) or Lever?

Wheels1987

crows have taken a DEF hit this week so Lever could have Job Security but Glenn is clearly a good player, but will struggle to hold his spot. i just want his bubble to burst at least so he makes a little coin

Liam

Need your thoughts on these trades community.
Oxley down to Lever
Salem to Tmich
Cheers.

tom

sounds good

Tofor

I wouldn't trade Oxley out. He's averaging over 80 which is good for a defender, and had a few huge scores. Any other options in defence?
Not sold on Lever either.
Missed a big price jump in TMitch.. but prob still worth it for one more week! Still obviously a risk there.

Francis

Titch, Buddy, Parker or Rockliff?

Ethan

Parker
Buddy
Rocky
Titch

Youngy_

there all good options but I feel Selwood is a good option if you have him probably Parker

Wheels1987

Rocky
Titch
Buddy
Parker

Tom

whats Levers Job security like?

Brad

Hopefully good!!

jacob

Good but scoring potential is the issue especially with a slightly elevated price of 157k.

SideBySidebottom

At D8 scoring shouldn't be too much of a problem too often one would hope.

Emma

Yep I want him to generate some cash so hoping he can play at least 6 games but will be on my bench and cover during byes, He is only the real downgrade option this week

Tofor

Decent. Scoring potential slight concern. Should still make you money. I'm tempted by him… slightly.

bob

is bryce gibbs a good pickup?

SideBySidebottom

Not in any way, shape or form.

Wheels1987

he is cheap.

Tofor

No. Just don't do it.

Danners16

Hey guys
Not really too sure on what to do this week, I thought Griffen got subbed out for no real reason, but he did his knee. Is it still worth giving him the axe and who to? Not really to sure on where to go this week on my team at the moment it looks like this (Lineup will change)
Def-T.McDonald, H.Shaw, L.Hodge, J.McGovern, B.Smith, A.Oxley (A.Saad, H.Schade)
Mid-N.Fyfe, S.Pendlebury, JPK, D.Heppell, D.Beams, R.Griffen, T.Miller, N.Krakouer (D.McKenzie, K.Lambert, J.Steele)
Ruck-T.Goldstein, I.Maric (M.Cox)
Fwd-R.Gray, D.Swan, M.Bontempelli, T.Adams, TBC, R.Tarrant (M.Clark, T.Lamb)
$50,000 in the bank
Thoughts?

sammy primos

boomer harvey !!!!!!

jezzahill

Rockliff looming large this week, and I reckon you must consider. Rest of your team looks solid enough

Tofor

Wait and see what the deal is with Griff. I've got him too.
If he's gone long term I'd go for Rockcliff.
For me, I've gone Vandenberg to Rockcliff so I might even go Tom McD for Griff via MID/DEF swing if Griff is gone..

Brad

Thinking vandenberg to Glenn (pending selection) and lonie to Gray. Thoughts?

sammys primo's

no job security for glenn his stuck on his bubble didnt get named last week for his third game very risky all those teams with him at the moment are trapped and wasted a trade risky dont go near him unless you can afford to wait and not have him play aswould have adequate bench cover hoping that eade may give him another gam next week or the next couple of weeks who knows?? for me it would be a no just to much risk and hope

SideBySidebottom

Can I lend you a full stop Sammy?

dognino

He didn't get named because he injured himself at training. Think it was an ankle. Should still be a decent downgrade option when named again.

Gareth

Is Stevie J about to explode without Duncan or well past his best?

SideBySidebottom

Maybe spontaneously combust or melt down, not sure about exploding though.

randomcliche

🙂

sammys priomos

iwould say steve motlop is about to explode

Tom

upgrade Vandenberg to Defender via DPP around 500k or upgrade to rocky

if I upgrade to rocky I will have to field Oxley, McKenzie and Saad and have Lever as my only bench cover?

SideBySidebottom

Happy trusting Oxley and Saad if the latter's playing. Loophole McKenzie and Lever.

Disclaimer: This advice cannot be relied upon if Oxley or Saad are not named or are late withdrawals.

Rob

Hey community!

Which Midfielder would you pick besides
Fyfe, selwood, Gray, D.Mckenzie, Kennedy, Shiel, Cripps, ( CEY, Krak, Blakely)

I am trading Vandenberg and not sure who to get

Any suggestions

sammys primo's

rockcliff makes the most sense but risky, you might jump on the boomer harvey boat before he becomes out reach not many teams have him if your looking for pod . i brought in priddis last week now no ones gunna bring him in too expensive now he bottomed out last down to 541k week now his up to 591k and only5.9% of team have him.good luck pal im doing the same this vanderberg gone

sammys primo's sc team name

Emma

Heppell is underpriced for what he can produce if you don't want to go rocky.

derek

Pendlebury would be my choice. But Sidebottom should be back this week. No-one has him.

Pies have got a dream run up to the byes.

Wheels1987

Rockliff

Tofor

Pendles.
Rockcliff is a cheap alternative.

Tofor

Having said that, I heard rumbles Pendles pulled up sore against the Tigers on Sunday..

SideBySidebottom

Looked fine on the track and he's got his 200th this weekend.

jmy7

Well im happy, i got T mcdonald when he was only $380K

Hungry Hawk

Congrats. Medal?

derek

Now it is time to bust a bryun move and sell him.

Youngy_

Nice, I'd be happy too

Tom

Burgoyne or Rance?

sammmy priomos

tough choice do you a go proven sc scorer or do you hope alex rance has a break out yea for me it would be rance as rances best sc yea last ait far off burgones best but risky as rance may not keep scoring like this

Dools

G'day Chicko and Community,
I for one, FU SC DATA C bombs, Injuries aside ! !!! and Pi55 poor scoring Premos save my mate Fyfe (your all right bloke)
I will still defy the SC GODS F them and the horse they rode in on!!
Not Happy…
Defiance radiates from my being , However me and the Fridge have a cunning plan that does not involve dounuts!
Limped over 2000k this week with Lonie 's massive 3, Salam 16 thank you Mother f and Vanders (My leg fell off) 30 something… Joined by my pal Griffen. Where is your Knee??? It's not on the park mate just like your efforts….
I so want to blame everything except the players and my foolish notion that I had an idea!
Bring it SC Gods I defy thee
Rant over. To the Fridge (win ..Win)
Great stuff Chicko (Preening hairstyles aside) LOL

T.J.M

Thoughts on Salem and Vandenberg to Goddard down back and Lewis?

randomcliche

Lewis should be well rested.

Liam

Is mcintosh to lever a good trade?

Tyler

Yeah if you have enough trades and no other problems. Tell ya what you're lucky if that is your biggest problem

derek

Lever should get a few more games with the Crows defence problems.

I personally am going to keep McIntosh and sell Oxley. ox has topped out in price where McIntosh has some yet to gain

Tofor

Completely agree.

randomcliche

Keeping Richmond pigs for culling rnd 11.

@KingWinter7

My Supercoach team so far:

15 Keepers (Shaw, Smith, Simpson. Fyfe, Pendles, JPK, Lewis, Selwood. Goldstein, Maric. Gray, Bont, Swanny, Dusty, Goddard)
2 Mids/Maybe Keepers (Newnes. Griffen)
5 On-field Rookies (Saad, Lever. Krak. Tarrant, Clark)
8 Bench Rookies (McIntosh, Brown. McKenzie, Glenn, Anderson. Read. Hogan, Lambert)

Thoughts on the structure at this time in the year?

Tyler

Solid, keep it up

derek

pretty solid team, rucks very good.

not much to help with except to keep painting the fence, one up and one down until the byes. Hopefully the rookies will appear soon.

roger rufosski

Nice team- how many trades left? Surely youve used more than 7?

randomcliche

I’m 4 onfield rookies after trades this week. Assumes Newnes Griffen J.Steven and T.Mitchell are keepers. Been bang banging…long way back I am. Seems pretty solid Keep up the good work.

TOM

Hi Community would love some advice on what trades I should be doing this week. First time commenting so hoping to get some help. This is my team:

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

$127,800 in the bank. Few injuries, but not sure which players to trade out and for which players to trade in

Feedback is much appreciated.

Tyler

Salem and vandenberg out
Then just depends who you want to bring in, you should probably paint the fence and go one up and one down. I would swing mckenzie into the mids (Gives you the mid/def swing), trade lever in, then swing krak (or any fwd/mid swing) into the fwd line and bring in another player like Rocky, Parker, Titch

derek

I'd agree with Tyler,

Vandenberg to Lever via McKenzie. Gives you cash generation plus a good MID/DEF swing.

salem to parker or Rocky via Krak. Gets you a premium and a MID/FWD swing.

randomcliche

Agreed.

Pretty decent team Tom. I have a similar team to you and am upgrading Vandenburg. I think he's peaked in price. I've got enough to bring JPK in, so I'm doing that. With my second trade, I'll wait and see who's named. I'll either downgrade Oxley to Lever or Heeney to Glen depending on selections. Looking at your rookies, I'd be either getting rid of either Salem, Hogan, Lonie. Hogan is coming back, so you could hold as he'll probably come close to his BE. The other two, can be culled for cash, bringing in either Lever or Glen using your swing sets. Hope that helps. Cheers

TOM

Thanks guys! What are your thoughts on Jordan Lewis, Heppell, Priddis and Treloar as a couple of possible midfilders to bring in?

randomcliche

I think Trelor is the most awesome of PODs thus week. Though I’m going Rocky.

Nicholas

Hey Community I have a dilemma this week with only scoring a 2,101 last week and I currently have 21 trades.
Here is my team, not sure what to do this week.
Back- Shaw, Taylor, Oxley, Ibbotson, McIntosh, McKenzie (Lever, Hamling)
Mid- Fyfe, Priddis, Selwood, Griffen, Lewis, Miller, Cripps, Krakouer (Vandenberg, Saad, Ellis-Yolmen)
Ruck- Goldstein, Naitanui ( Read)
Forward- Swan, Goddard, Gray, Martin, Franklin, Tarrant ( Hogan, Clark)
I am currently ranked 8,879 and would really appreciate any advice what to do this week.
Was thinking of Rocky or Parker this week but I only have a lousy $150,300 in the bank.
Thanks for your help.

derek

I really like your forward line. Who is going to be your F6?

You should have the cash to go Vandenberg to Rocky.

Nicholas

im lacking on players in round 11 bye and have a tonne in 13 so rocky is good for me. Would I also make another trade like a downgrade to a rookie? my f6 is still undecied maybe deledio if he comes good

derek

no-one to downgrade to. Save the trade.

Nicholas

what bout oxley he is gonna drop and pearce is on the bubble

Nicholas

also is rocky or mitchell more of a priority right now. Was looking at maybe pearce as a rookie not sure about js tho.

BundyBear

Rumour has it that oxley will score 150 this week

Adzy

Whats you thought on this guys.

Oxley – Lever or Alex pearce
Vandenberg – rocky
with 230k ish in the bank for another premo next week

Adzy

def – shaw, newnes, hibbo, saad, kmac, kelly (Brown, OX)
mid – fyfe, pendles, priddis, beams, danger, parker, cripps, miller (Vanders, cey, mckenzie)
ruck – goldy , bellchambers
fwd – swan, gray, martin, bont, mitchell, tarrant (krak, salem)

derek

Think about upgrading TBC before Rocky. the premium rucks all had good games on the weekend and are all about to get more expensive, where TBC is going nowhere and costing you points.

Your rookie mids will score better than TBC and their price increase will match or better Rocky, so you can do that trade next week.

Jaydos

Thoughts on Thurlow and is his role going to produce consistant scores?

Dann

15 game player so HUGE risk but he's comfortably in the best 22, has elite efficiency & has had a 2 season apprentership in the VFL, don't see why he won't avergae 90+ He's a gun

Cozza

The big unknown is what will happen to his role when Mackie comes back into the team. They've been using Thurlow to distribute from the backline, but the cats love using Mackie for that as well. I can see Mackie taking some of Thurlows points unless Thurlow plays more MID time now with Duncan out. A lot of unknowns with Thurlow – enough to question whether he would be a top 8 defender from here on.

Jim

Which premo mid should I get for 605,000? Was thinking Lewis or Priddis. Already have Selwood, Fyfe, JPK, Parker, Beams

derek

Sidebottom, big POD. Pies have some easy games.

Jim

isn't he injured?

derek

will be back this week I think

SideBySidebottom

He's $608,200.

General Soreness

Round 12 to go with Parker, JPK, Fyfe

Ethan

i think you missed the priddis boat, even though you have cash it would be wiser to find another fallen premium

Youngy_

Priddis

Wheels1987

wait for Sidebottom to play his 2nd game and have a look then
otherwise Rocky

@t_woof

Voted for Other – looking long and hard at Treloar 490K.

Ethan

has to compete with shiel, griffin, ward and maybe coniglio. someone will suffer points wise

@t_woof

Valid point Ethan.

80-90K drop from starting price.
Take away the 40 odd score v WCE, when they were smashed he's averaging 113.

I've been crucified with injuries and suspensions, so searching long and hard for value.

Jambo

Treloar averages mainly between 90-100 most weeks. I find that if he dominates for two weeks, then he has two poor weeks. Be wary.

Rocksta

At $490K, I think just too good to ignore.

I went Vandy to Rocky, and Ox to Trealor ( by subbing DMak into the backline).
Still leaves me with around $150K to hopefully get me from Cripps to Pendles next week.
I’m stoked with my trades.

@t_woof

Very nice trades Rocksta, really like both the in's and outs there!! Then Cripps > Pendles the following week the cherry on top!!

I'm looking at VandenBerg > Treloar.

Then, couple thousand short for Oxley > T.Mitchell via H.Goddard swing from fwd to def. So looking at Ibbotson > T.Mitchell instead. Oxley has averaged more over the past three weeks, so think i'll hold him and offload Ibbo who's done his job.

throttlefinger

Powerful prayer, Chicko. Fyfe has been saved.

Given the potency of your invocation, I will be saying a version of this before every round. Hope its miracle effects can stop the massive smiting my team takes each week.

Tom

Hey Community,

Just need an insight into who to take out of Parker and JPK?

All thoughts appreciated!

Ethan

parker coming off 2 100's and cheaper

Swans2012

Parker for potential, jpk for proven output, swans midfield is hard to pick, I think the value of Parker over Kennedy but only due to the $$$ savings. If they were the same price it’d be jpk for mine. Parker was bloody majestic though on Saturday. If I had to pick a swan midfielder, I reckon it’s hanneberry’s year, He’s the only swan mid I’m considering and I don’t normally like taking any of them, despite being a supporter. (I do have titch as well but he doesn’t count as was too cheap to refuse and is a gws)

Swans2012

Gws=fwd dam autocorrecto

Youngy_

JPK

Wheels1987

I went Kieran Jack
haha
too many good Swan options

Nathan

Alex Pearce from Freo. Im at the stage where its him or Lever. Slightly cheaper price tag. What do we think of his JS?

Ethan

potentially lower job security. has done his job but when someone like mzungu comes back, dont expect pearce to be 100% in the team

Paul Walnuts

but saying that Lyon has publicly said he loves the way he plays

BundyBear

hahaha Never trust Lyon. He will lead you a merry dance. Once you have who you want he will rest them. he has done it before and will do it again

Swans2012

+1 Lyin is the the burn man, no fringe dwellers for me.

Cozza

He is the likely exclusion when McPharlin comes back, which is this week apparently. Even if named this week his JS will be questionable

Jambo

Very low. He'll come on the chopping block with McPharlin coming into the team.
