Should we trade CEY and Tarrant? I really want Jack Steven but I'd have to make 2 trades if I was to trade Tarrant and CEY I have enough but will his price go up still? I'm worried about his scoring output.

    Poloko48 · 24/05/2015 at 21:47

    Sure you're not chasing points mate? Will Steven be part of your midfield for the rest of the year? Plenty of better value elsewhere I reckon.

      David · 24/05/2015 at 21:58

      I wanted him when he was under 500 but I had injuries and had to put rock in. Like who? I have Parker and Rockliff.

    Luke · 24/05/2015 at 21:49

    u only want Jack steven cos he hit 170 this week dont chase points

      David · 24/05/2015 at 21:59

      False. If I was chasing points I'd go with Simpson.

        mcleal10 · 24/05/2015 at 22:49

        Simpson's had a great season though compared to many other defenders.. leaving him as a respectable option in defence..

          Traderlyf · 25/05/2015 at 22:05

          how is he chasing points? Steven is averaging 120….

            David · 26/05/2015 at 00:38

            Because apparently wanting a guy for ages but trying to pick up premiums under 500k like Parker and Rockliff when Steven scored 171 means you're chasing points but I bet these guys picked pride is or wanted him after his almost 200 point game.

KJU FC · 24/05/2015 at 21:42

Cripps to Rocky

BANG

    Derek · 24/05/2015 at 21:59

    Bang

      Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 22:33

      Touk Miller can wait.

      Cripps to Rockliff this week.

    Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 22:31

    BANG!! The perfect trade. Now is the time.

tomp · 24/05/2015 at 21:44

Worried about the lack of quality rookies to downgrade to…

    Hazey · 24/05/2015 at 21:49

    Same here

    The Bont · 24/05/2015 at 22:05

    Yep, there's no one. Only options are to downgrade to a cheap $102k donut, or to hold. I'm thinking hold as most of the popular rookies (Miller, Cripps, Mcintosh, Krak, Hogan, Tarrant, etc) still have low breakevens, and should all manage to at least achieve breakeven.

      Mr chan · 25/05/2015 at 12:41

      Yep that’s the dilemma this week with no solid rookie options. Need these guys to play in the bye rounds

tomp · 24/05/2015 at 21:44

Is Bailey Dale a good option if not named sub this week?

    scrofl · 24/05/2015 at 22:06

    Hasn't scored well at all, probably won't keep his spot in the side for long enough to make any decent amount of money.

      tomp · 24/05/2015 at 22:08

      how is he meant to score well if hes sub?

      a 50 and 30 isnt too bad as sub…

      The Bont · 24/05/2015 at 22:11

      He's been sub both weeks and scored important goals both weeks. Having said that though, Dogs have Macrae, Hrovat and Lukas Webb in the VFL, who all deserve spots in the firsts, so may see some changes in the coming weeks.

        randomcliche · 24/05/2015 at 23:21

        Hey Bont, what was with your 42 this week? 🙂

        Darrell · 25/05/2015 at 11:33

        Hasnt been sub both weeks. First week started

          The Bont · 25/05/2015 at 13:20

          ahhhh you're right, maybe he was just a bit quiet in the first half then

    jacob · 24/05/2015 at 23:26

    Might well be with Goodes out with a broken arm.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 09:59

    i am going to avoid Dale. Theres a few players on the horizon to look for

      TheCompletePackage · 26/05/2015 at 23:43

      Like who?

        @wheels_1987 · 27/05/2015 at 08:11

        POST STOLEN FROM DEREK (great write up mate by the way)

        In the words of Jock, "the rookies will appear". Jock said this before the first round when we couldn't find any rookies in defence, and sure enough, McIntosh, saad & Oxley came to our rescue.

        There are plenty of Rookies who will get games in the next 4-5 weeks.

        Steele, Blakely, Kolodjashnij, H Goddard, Scharenberg, Moore, Laverde, Viojo-rainbow are all close to getting a game.

        There are Stretch, Glen20 & mcbean already had a game or two will get more games.

        There will be Lamb & Lambert coming back from injury soon, even Nelson, Anderson, Towers & Cockatoo around $155k are still rookie priced.

        We will find our downgrades!!!!

Rob · 24/05/2015 at 21:58

Hey community!

This my team currently.

BACK: Shaw, simpson, newnes, lumumba, Lever,Saad ( mckintosh and hamling)
Mid: Fyfe, selwood, Gray, D.Mckenzie, Kennedy, Shiel, Cripps, Priddis( CEY, Krak, Blakely)
Ruck: Ryder, Nicnat( read)
FWD: Roughy, Martin, Bont, Hogan, Franklin,Tarrant( Lonie and lambert)

I have 200K and bot sure what to do. Any suggestions?

    Hazey · 24/05/2015 at 22:01

    Rocky into the mids?

    jezzahill · 24/05/2015 at 22:33

    Cripps to Rockliff is a must this week

    Vardo · 25/05/2015 at 13:08

    Burn Lumumba!

Brad · 24/05/2015 at 22:05

No trades this week.

Davo · 24/05/2015 at 22:05

lumumba to Hurley?

    Youngy · 25/05/2015 at 09:21

    I'd hold him, unless he doesn't play

min0008 · 24/05/2015 at 22:06

Cripps to Rocky but need to trade Tarrant out for Dale to afford him

    Youngy · 24/05/2015 at 23:50

    In in the same boat, wondering if it is worth waiting for byes

    Motsy · 25/05/2015 at 00:27

    Is Tarrant on field for you?

      min0008 · 25/05/2015 at 15:36

      No he is on the bench for Krakouer

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:00

    I would be cautious with Dale. Not sure if he can hold his spot in the team and not a Huge BE

dognino · 24/05/2015 at 22:08

Going into the byes with 9-12-9 at the moment, have traded @rse off with injuries so far, but if Lonie and smith are back in next week I'll have 29 scoring players . With no real downgrade options at the moment I'll be holding off trades , and looking to trade strategically through the byes based on my opponents. Top prize is well out of reach sitting at 26,000 rank

barnyfrench · 24/05/2015 at 22:09

Could someone outline to me the scoring rules for bye rounds

    Timmy · 24/05/2015 at 22:17

    You get the scores form the top 18 players onfield

      Timmy · 24/05/2015 at 22:17

      "from"

    Donavan · 24/05/2015 at 22:19

    Best 18 on field score count. C & VC strategy and points remain unchanged.

Locked and Loaded · 24/05/2015 at 22:10

With the lack of downgrade options this year our cows need to be milked until the last little drop. Oxley and Vandenberg (traded out both) have proved that even when BE's appear unattainable they can bet met. Would rather not trade now than have headaches come business end of the season. Rocky also proves a SC bargain like that needs to go straight in woithout hesitation. Remember that when Gaz is ripe for the picking

    Derek · 24/05/2015 at 22:28

    How far away are Lambert and Lamb?

      randomcliche · 24/05/2015 at 23:26

      due in bye rounds, round 11-12 and rnd 13 respectively. Not much help for the bye rounds scoring wise, but downgrading during those weeks are locks for mine.

        nathan · 25/05/2015 at 10:33

        I kept lambert for the loopholes
        Need to get him back soon to make a little bit of money from him
        Had to trade lamb but will bring back in if he plays

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:02

    I said hold Ox and he payed off
    Tmac did bugger all

    For those that traded Ox to Tmac lost 10 points and wasted alot of $

      Locked and Loaded · 25/05/2015 at 10:06

      wheels I always understood where you were coming from although Ox hardly went up in price. Ox being traded sits fine with me. I was just using it as an example with rookies. Midfield rookies more so as they can considerably close the gap when it comes to spending.

tomp · 24/05/2015 at 22:12

a bit off topic but is there anytime where its good to trial supercoach gold or does it not really matter?

    CashCows · 24/05/2015 at 22:45

    Personally I dont think there's an optimal time to use it. But I did use it pretty early, I think R4-R6, just to start my team off right. Was nice having projected prices and BEs.

      PADP · 25/05/2015 at 00:16

      It is $20 = beers or 4 coffees and worth it's weight in gold or you can buy it monthly for the price of a beer.

      CashCows · 25/05/2015 at 11:21

      Stealing my name?

      As far as gold, I am a fan

    Youngy · 25/05/2015 at 09:20

    Anytime between R1 – R20. Don't wanna use it to late or before the season starts

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:03

    i would use the trial at the bye rounds

    but seriously $20

    Just pay up. its a great tool, and enhances the SC experience

Harrison · 24/05/2015 at 22:13

wallis and ebert were good POD's this week for me.

Studs: simpson newnes, saad, oxley, shaw, fyfe, pendles, wallis, ebert, gray, swan, martin, nicnat, rockliff, lewis
Duds: kmac, krak, tarrant, goldy, de goey, bontempelli, CEY, cripps, miller

Not a gret round but still happy, rookies flopped and premos flew

chris · 24/05/2015 at 22:24

going ballsy this week jock.. ranked 390th overall.. have reasonable bye structure also..

out cripps and miller
in. rockliff and brodie smith

people may say no to brodie smith, but if he is playing this week he is in my team, i know he will drop a bit in price.. however i think he is going to score well for the year. averaging 96 if you take out his 2 KO's

    stevie · 25/05/2015 at 01:24

    Perfect round 12 upgrade imo, you can wait 2 weeks.

      demon · 25/05/2015 at 01:31

      agreed, oxley to smith downgrade is on the cards

    smith way too soon · 25/05/2015 at 10:00

    Just look at Luke Parker, ko'd in round 1 then took until round 6 to crack the tonne. Smith is going to take even longer after his second concussion. Bring him in at your peril, his scoring will take a minimum of 5 weeks, if not longer to get back to the highs of round 1.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:05

    Your ranked so good, but i think you might be making a POD risk move for the sake of it
    Cripps to Rocky is a good trade but i would say Hold one more week on B SMITH
    High BE, let him play one good week then snap him up

Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 22:24

Melbourne are on the move!

Vandenberg and Hogan are their blood. Brilliant performances this week.

The Port Adelaide bus is coming to town next.
.
Me thinks there could be a few passengers on the bus.

Both Vandie and Hoges will be starters against Port Adelaide next week.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:05

    I traded OUT salem, following week he cracked the ton
    then i trade out Hogan and Vberg in the same week
    both dominate

    SC gods are cruel

      Youngy · 26/05/2015 at 12:33

      I understand ya brang in Franklin last week scores me a 47

Tom · 24/05/2015 at 22:24

is it bad to be fielding donuts during the byes?

if not how many donuts is too much?

atm Im looking at 2 donuts in the first week, 5 the next and 6 in the last.

    Bruds · 24/05/2015 at 22:39

    Your top 18 scores are counted during byes so aim to have a max of 4 on field donuts

    Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 22:45

    O dear.

    Better start planning.

    You know the rule:

    "if you fail to plan, you plan to fail"

    Good luck

    Cheers

      Tom · 24/05/2015 at 22:48

      is it really that bad to have donuts on field? I though it was normal to have a few… Oops

      yurkins · 25/05/2015 at 00:08

      the byes can really sting you in overall positioning but it can be lots less relevant in league plans.

      round 12 is the most difficult to avoid 0s for all players even those amongst us that planned for it in the season beginning. Injuries, cash cows and aggressive trade ups can interfere with those plans as we aim for best quality players at that time.

      IMO beware of being understocked in round 12 and will be the most difficult to avoid for all of us the dreaded donut.

chris · 24/05/2015 at 22:28

time for lumumba to sit on the pine!

    Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 22:46

    Time for Lumumba to Ommitted

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:06

    i want the prince out of my team, but im holding. i dont want to lock in a loss and im hoping he can find form and get back to the $400k mark

daddyotoole · 24/05/2015 at 22:30

Lumumba >>> Simpson or Hibberd
OR
Miller/CEY >>> Rockliff

    Bruds · 24/05/2015 at 22:44

    rockliff is more important i feel and it's really up to you with the rookies, CEY has a round 11 bye whereas Miller is rd 12 so work out who fits your bye structure better

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:06

    CEY to Rocky

    demon · 25/05/2015 at 12:47

    miller has hawks, sydney, freo next 3… I'd be dumping him

chris · 24/05/2015 at 22:31

team:

def: shaw, rance, higgins, newnes, saad, b.smith, goodes, lever
mid: fyfe, pendles, priddis, kennedy, beams, CEY, rocky, krak, lumumba, mckenzie, anderson
ruck: mumford, nic nat, read
fwd: gray, martin, swan, goddard, buddy, clarke, tarrant, lamb

thoughts community. 18 trades this left. just traded cripps to rocky, t.miller to b.smith (if he is picked to play).
ranked 390th overall

    Bruds · 24/05/2015 at 22:47

    So impressive to be ranked so highly, i'm just at 4k
    With Freo this week and a round 11 bye for smith i'd just do the rockliff trade. Remember it's a LONG season and even though you're chasing rank it'll do you well to trade big during byes and not too much before
    You'll also want a few trades later on to pick the in form players over the last few rounds

Dustbin Feltchers · 24/05/2015 at 22:33

Big shout out to Jivesy's Jumbuck's who jumped from 45 to 32 this week. Very trouser stretching!! Don't forgot who gave you their extra copy of Jocks bible when u take home the bickys. (i did take out the centrefold for the missus) thanks to australia post for the extra copy. love the podcast

Ethan · 24/05/2015 at 22:34

ill need to downgrade if i am to get rocky in
but who has more job security menadue or dale

    Bruds · 24/05/2015 at 22:49

    Honestly ethan i'd wait until teams are announced and then possibly until subs are named until you trade because they're both not very safe at all
    If i had to make a call now i'd say dale has less security with mcrae, hrovat and a couple more to come into the dogs side

      jacob · 25/05/2015 at 09:17

      Yeh good thinking. If Dale isnt named sub this week I'll pull the trigger on Tarrant to Dale just before the Dogs game.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:08

    wait till thursday but i would go Menadue
    his first week score will be out of his scoring calculations by his 4th game and i think he has more Job Sec over Dale

    that said, i am holding on any trades this week. not much to look at

Tigertanic · 24/05/2015 at 22:35

Debate time community:

LUKEY PARKER ($553,000) vs JORDAN LEWIS ($538,100)

If you were gonna get one of these two this week, which one would it be and why?

…and yeah, I'm getting one of them this week.

    chris · 24/05/2015 at 22:39

    jordan lewis.
    can see everyone jumping on parker but i feel that sydney midfield has heaps of depth and long term won't average more than 105
    lewis is the number 1 midfielder in one of the best sides..

    before lewis was suspended everyone was saying he should be peoples top priority.. dont think anything has changed tbh.. i am going to be looking to get him in very shortly!

      chris · 24/05/2015 at 22:39

      also, i already have JPK and buddy.. so don't want too many from same side.. also have no one from hawks..

        Dean · 24/05/2015 at 23:05

        Great post i chose Priddis last week for Sloan and glad I did, I went Vandenberg to Parker this week and again im glad I did as I believe Parker will average 110 at least and at his price of $511k it was irresistible the guy is a GUN.
        Although if you have JPK & BUDDY that's a fair call, I just had JPK prior and now Parker. I'm not sold on Franklin far to inconsistent.

        I totally agree with ya on good ol Lewis though I am going to either bring in Lewis or Rockey in a few weeks as my midfield is done bar one player but I have Cripps, Ellis-Yolmen so its going to be basically a straight swap or little cash exchanged. I was impressed with Rocky though but ill still wait now…

        Youngy · 24/05/2015 at 23:19

        I have JPK, Buddy and Parker, Don't see a problem as long as you are looking out for the byes. There usually a winning team and don't get thrashed very often if at all. It would be different if it was 3 Melbourne players.

      Ben · 24/05/2015 at 22:45

      Is Lewis the no 1 mid? Mitchell / Hodge far more important to Hawthorn the Lewis is

        PADP · 25/05/2015 at 00:21

        Rubbish

      Derek · 25/05/2015 at 00:05

      Hawks have a couple of easy games. Lewis scores well against weak teams

        PADP · 25/05/2015 at 13:03

        Rubbish again. Lewis 138 in 2015 premiership against Sydney.

          finsharkey · 25/05/2015 at 13:44

          didnt say he does score well against the top teams big fella

    mcleal10 · 24/05/2015 at 22:52

    Lewis is clearly a hothead and I'd much prefer the Parker boy. Parker is set for a big next half of the season.

    Locked and Loaded · 25/05/2015 at 02:09

    PARKER easily that’s all

barnyfrench · 24/05/2015 at 22:36

Does the bye round have an effect on the captains loophole?

    Jonesy · 24/05/2015 at 22:47

    Yes, only during the 3 bye rounds you can't use the captain loophole… Every other week you can…

      Youngy · 24/05/2015 at 23:20

      Was thinking that myself, Thx Jonesy

        Derek · 25/05/2015 at 00:07

        Why not. Can’t see why it would be different

          Donavan · 25/05/2015 at 06:26

          Only difference is that non-playing teams players are locked from the first lockout of the round.

          You can still use the loophole if you have a non-playing player from a team that doesn't have the bye (ie 3rd ruckman).

    yurkins · 25/05/2015 at 00:18

    its actually easier as there are loads of donut options to use.

Ty · 24/05/2015 at 22:39

Do I hold Pittard ? Got him in for Newnes a few weeks ago ? : (

    Ben · 24/05/2015 at 22:48

    Stupid trade

    Bruds · 24/05/2015 at 22:52

    i have pittard and thought he could be a keeper due to his first 5 rounds but as port have played poor so has he. Hold for now but post byes look to upgrade if his form doesn't improve

    Youngy · 24/05/2015 at 23:15

    Hold

    Gold Rush · 25/05/2015 at 16:12

    Pittard is another BURN MAN, learnt that lesson last year and will never select him again.

ThingThatMakeUgoHmmm · 24/05/2015 at 22:45

Agree also, I started off playing DT many years ago however the past 5/6 years I have been playing SC, and im afraid its becoming a SERIOUS joke.

I respect the community and all the work that Jock, Higgo, Crouching and all others put in not to mention the great humour. I have NO grudges at ALL with the community of Super Coach. What I do have is a grudge with the Super Coach scoring system.

A couple of weeks ago, I heard a podcast trying to explain how the scoring system works and how a huge impact of Super Coaches scoring system all depends when the possessions took place during each individual game, so if the mark, kick, tackles, hand balls and so forth took place at a crucial period in the game that results in more points.

If this is true then in my opinion this scoring system is far from being the GREATEST in the AFL fantasy footy. Numbers have dropped on last years figures and will continue too do so and it's no wonder why.

At the end of the day, if a scoring system can alter depending when the possession was taken is nothing but a SCAM, it wasn't like this originally but its fast becoming a massive JOKE. It's now become a multi million dollar industry, where people pay $19.95 to become a SC gold member which doesn't include ALL live SC scores, if you want that luxury you have to become a Herald Sun + subscriber and fork out $24.95 per month.

The scoring system should stipulate in black and white as following for example: HANDBALL = 1, MARK = 1, KICK = 2, TACKLE =3, GOAL = 10, Winning GOAL in tight games = 30, CLANGERS = -3 and so forth. YES it stipulates some of this to a degree, however with all the unknown crap about the scoring system changes when possessions are taken during crucial or crunch time moments in a game is a load of CRAP and it has become CORRUPT without a shadow of a doubt. NO ONE now knows what the real scoring system is due to ALL of this, if you go by the scoring system on the SC website then this is BEYOND corrupt as many times the scores do NOT correlate simply going by the Super Coach scoring system.

Who and when determines what the score should be during so called "Crucial moments" in a AFL game, Does anyone know?
You got to remember there are many crucial moments during ONE given game let alone 9 of them.
Where does it stipulate under the SUPER COACH scoring system that when a kick, handball, tackle and so forth scores x amount of points when done during "Crucial moment" in a AFL game?
NO WHERE and why is that you may ask? The reason is because it's literally impossible for individuals to make these decisions let alone a computed system. For Gods sake even our third umpire doesn't even get it right all of the time, let alone a scoring system that is permitted to change the scoring depending whether a possession was taken during a crucial moment or not, it really does sound ABSURD.

It's becoming more evident week after week how ludicrous the Super Coach scoring system really works or for a better word "Lacks" working as a fair and equitable system for ALL individual players.

If someone has the link stipulating exactly how these Super Coach scores are formulated when possessions are made during these crucial moments it would be greatly appreciated if you could past it below.

Just remember I want this to be fair and equitable for us ALL as a community and unfortunately I don't feel that way at all.

Many thanks

    Relax mate!

    We are all in the same boat!

    Gold Rush · 24/05/2015 at 23:04

    Should not matter where or when you got a kick, handball, goal etc – should be the same points to eliminate the human factor opinions of who ever allocates the weightings on a players score. Put it this way, the winning goal would not of been the winning goal if a previous goal was not scored. A stuffed handball or kick is scored as a clanger.

      Tigertanic · 24/05/2015 at 23:29

      They already have that…it's called DreamTeam

        Gold Rush · 25/05/2015 at 00:44

        Dream team is different in many ways. But sc scoring has changed for the detriment of the game. Have no probe with some of the changes such as hit outs to advantage, but some of the changes are too subjective full stop.

    NICE RANT.

    Why dont you give ultimate footy a go next year along with your SC …. not better just clearer scoring for you. Just ensure its a category scoring league you join. The draft is also an interesting element.

    PADP · 25/05/2015 at 00:30

    Thanks for going to the trouble to write this. I agree with most of what you write. I play both games and prefer DT because it does not have the rolling lockout. Also the money aspect of SC is a pain in the butt. It is very off putting. I loved both games better when they first started. People now can pay hard earned cash to get all sorts of advice.

    man up buttercup · 25/05/2015 at 10:07

    Can't handle the SC heat then go back to DT… but we all know DT is for chumps that like things easy. DT with your 2 trades per week and rewarding muppets who rack up the stats but cannot hit a target. Its a game for the kiddies.

    Quite contridicting to say 30 points should be awarded for a winning goal whilst arguing that all stats should be the same no matter what time of the game. Lel.

Jack · 24/05/2015 at 22:51

Say smith plays this week, would these trades be good Miller to smith and fisher to Pendlebury.?

    Bruds · 24/05/2015 at 22:55

    I think pendles is a must for all teams but i'd wait on smith because he has freo and a rd 11 bye. I'd look to get smith in after his bye

      Jack · 24/05/2015 at 23:26

      Your points are smart but in my situation I feel it's the only thing I can do. I can't leave fisher on the bench, and I don't feel comfortable having Mckenzie on the ground and what is killing me is that i have no Pendlebury and that all Mckenzie, touik and CEY all scored bad scores. Smith I feel can be in the top 6 defenders and take out those 2 Ko games, his form proves it. And then I'll only have CEY to upgrade and I've got a full premium midfield. Risky, but hey SuperCoach is all about luck.

    derek · 25/05/2015 at 11:55

    you have a few non-playing rookies there, your strategy will change a lot if Steele and Goddard are named this week (likely)

    TBC has to go. Need to find the cash to upgrade him soon. Most of the good rucks have already fallen in price and are now starting to increase again, so don't leave it to much longer to upgrade. (mummy, sauce, maric, blicavs, sandi)

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/05/2015 at 12:17

      TBC to goldy in Rd 11. That 40 is gonna stay with him the next 2 weeks and can get him under $500k! Gotta luv that.

Is it normal to have a few donuts on field during the byes?

    Definitely. You only need 18 scores so you can afford 4 donuts a round before you'll get a bye donut

      Tom · 24/05/2015 at 23:09

      Wait so over the three weeks I only need to field 18 players?
      Does that mean it is going to be an accumulative score over the three weeks?

        Tom · 24/05/2015 at 23:11

        Or is it 18 people per week? Sorry not quite getting this bye shitttt

          The Bont · 24/05/2015 at 23:22

          Hey Tom.
          Each week best 18 on field with normal sub vice/capt shenanigans as far as I know. It doesn't matter if you don't have any rucks playing round 11 (like me) because I can still get 18 scores from the other 20 positions. Clear as mud?

    Bruds · 24/05/2015 at 23:12

    He went up $17,100…

    Dean · 24/05/2015 at 23:13

    Yet Cripps Breakeven was 68 which is exactly what he scored in round 8 and his price increased by $8,200

      Bruds · 24/05/2015 at 23:17

      Are you on Fantasy or something other than supercoach because where are you reading $8,200? Cripps Went up by $500 and that would be because you can score 1.5 in supercoach for a handball and i think 4.5 for a hard ball get so cripps would have ended up on 68.5 points this round hence the $500 increase rather than staying the same price

        Tigertanic · 24/05/2015 at 23:35

        HAHA you guy!! You're on Supercoach Gold aren't you?

        If you press the Projection button at the top, it shows you what it PREDICTS that player will score next round, and how that will affect his price. That's what you guys are seeing. Goodes is predicted to score 46 next week, which will make his price go down by $1,600. Cripps is predicted to score 104, which will make his price go up by $8,200.

        Click on the player to see how much they have changed in price from the game just gone.

Thoughts on Elliot Yeo everyone? Not many options in defence

    jacob · 24/05/2015 at 23:45

    Not too late to jump on. I took the risk last week and I think it will really pay off. He is a super player and if he continues to play the same role as he is atm he will average 100+. High cieling with his goal kicking and contested marking ability. He seems to be able to do it all. For example, he only had 15 touches on the weekend but 3 goals, 7 tackles and a few contested marks boosted his score to 111. So even of he isn’t finding a heap of the pill (which I reckon he’ll do most weeks) he always has ways to score points.

      CashCows · 24/05/2015 at 23:51

      I would be a little cautious bringing him in. Here some food for thought.

      This was from Fantasy Freako on twitter:
      "Yeo attended 14 centre bounces prior to Selwood coming on as the sub. Only 4 after that compared to Selwood's 10. "

        Locked and Loaded · 25/05/2015 at 10:08

        Comparing him to a Nat Fyfe type player on SEN this morning. Need to start paying real attention. I just doubt he'll continue to score this well against the good sides

        Jimmy · 25/05/2015 at 13:18

        Interesting point but he actually scored better after Selwood came on, which says to me that he can score well no matter what role he plays. Was on 44 points at half time and ended up on 111. Took some nice contested marks playing on the wing and up forward after half time, and scored a couple of goals.

    mcleal10 · 25/05/2015 at 23:08

    Suspended. I don't like his stye but could be worth a risk.

jacob · 24/05/2015 at 23:48

Touk Miller to Deledio this week for me. Lids has had a couple of awesome games and with a BE if 44 this is the time to jump on. That move also opens up the FWD/MID swingset which will be very handy in bye rounds. Anyone else keen on Lids?

    Aled · 24/05/2015 at 23:51

    ive had Brett for 3 years (traded him this year) and just letting you know that he can score big but he can also score poor more so when his tagged. I feel his price is to high for me but if you want to take a punt sure (-: he might keep it up for the rest of year.

      jacob · 25/05/2015 at 00:03

      Price too high? His price is 20k less than the start of the year. And I don't think 530k is too much for a bloke who has averaged 100+ for the past 7 years. I'm thinking the tigers will reach new heights for the rest of the season and you know what happens when the tigers are winning? Deledio scores big.

        PADP · 25/05/2015 at 00:35

        And he gets injured. Dont touch.

        Aled · 25/05/2015 at 00:38

        Like I said, he can have games where he doesn't score high so if he had few weeks of 70-90s don't cry about trading him out. I'm a Tigers fan man and we're still inconsistent . Winning yes but not consistent. If we beat Essendon then I'll say we are consistent . Deledio is to pricey for me. I picked up Parker, Rockliff and Barlow all under 500k and look what they're doing.

    Clunker · 25/05/2015 at 08:46

    Remember people…Hardwick said Deledio will have to be managed all season. So if you can “manage” without the bloke…go for it.

    nathan · 25/05/2015 at 11:17

    Not sold on lids
    Can go big but most games only gets around 90
    When tagged will score real poor
    If yiu go martin yiu get the same perks as lids but is more consistent

      JRod · 25/05/2015 at 12:11

      Spot on, Deledio has had two big games (untagged) might not be such a myth that when he plays well Richmond play well. Some very tough games coming up and I expect teams to put a lot of work into stopping Deledio, also the management worries me, not to say he won't be in my side come the end of season just not high on my priority list ATM. My sights are on Dahlhaus after his bye round, some very good fixtures coming up.

        nathan · 25/05/2015 at 12:40

        Yeah dahlhaus is going to be my last forward to bring in before im trading premos for ultra premos

    derek · 25/05/2015 at 11:42

    I had delidio pencilled into my team, thinking his price might be lower than it is, I would consider if cheaper, but not happy paying over $500k. wait for bartell to come back.

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 09:19

    great choice, good player

    be mindful of round 11 bye and injury risk

Aled · 24/05/2015 at 23:48

I might cop some hate or insults but is trading your ass off in the bye rounds worth it? I mean you have 3 trades each week in the byes which you're potential losing 12 trades. Now even if you have a lot of money letter over to get all these premiums, you'll still have to downgrade highly priced rookies for lesser rookies which imo is bad. 1: there are not many rookies who are on the bubble who are looking like they will make money and hold their spot, I can't see any coming in the next few weeks who are at the stage of an Oxley, Saad, CEY, Miller etc so doing that is highly risky and what happens if you trade all those rookies out for ones who get dropped,vested or score bad scores. You'll have a high quality team full of premiums but either rookies on the bench who aren't scoring well or donuts and with less trades and rookies making no money making it that if a premium gets injured or rested, you'll have to put a dodgy rookie on and what if high priced rookies we have now play well all year? O'meara when he started got traded out when he lost a bit of price yet he still got 90+ all year, same with Dom Tyson last year. That's why I'll be sticking to my regular season outlook with the byes. 1 up, 1 down and if there aren't no good options. I'll keep the proven rookies I have. Rather have an Oxley who will lose. Money and play and score well then a donut or poor scoring player that I've wasted a trade on .

    PADP · 25/05/2015 at 00:37

    Remember – 3 trades are OPTIONAL and certainly not compulsory.

      Ales · 25/05/2015 at 05:28

      I know but majority of SuperCoach players will use them because they want a full premium team quickly and inexperienced players will trade all their trades. It's a long season, we don't have to trade this early but it seems that according to the experts, we have to, then comes at the end of the year gossip girl talk about how we have no trades and this player isn't playing with no bench cover, just remember that before loading your team with full premiums and unrealiable bench cover

    derek · 25/05/2015 at 09:38

    this is where having DPP players in your team, strategically linked, separates the good players from the average players.

    remember last year, using Martin in ruck, he was able to cover 3 lines.

    H Goddard is perfect example, he should get a game soon, but even if he doesn't he is a perfect DPP link to have. he is already in my structure.

    as the year progresses, you need to have full premium and at least one good DPP backup (ziebell/TMitch type) and have good DPP links across all your lines to switch players around to cover any injuries.

    There are plenty of Rookies who will get games in the next 4-5 weeks.

    Steele, Blakely, Kolodjashnij, H Goddard, Scharenberg, Moore, Laverde, Viojo-rainbow are all close to getting a game.

    There are Stretch, Glen20 & mcbean already had a game or two will get more games.

    There will be Lamb & Lambert coming back from injury soon, even Nelson, Anderson, Towers & Cockatoo around $155k are still rookie priced

    getting cash cow rookies after round 14 is useless

      Locked and Loaded · 25/05/2015 at 10:13

      Derek are yo saying to bring theses guys in now before they are even named?? I don't quite follow

        derek · 25/05/2015 at 10:26

        I'm just saying that they will appear! have faith.

        McBean (RIC) will be a good option

        I'm hoping to have a full premium team by round 13 and have 9 or 10 trades left. That will cover me for injuries and rucks who get rested (I have no ruck cover). Any rookies you bring in after round 14 you won't have a chance to cash them in, it will waste a trade and most of your trades after round 14 will be sideways

          brook · 25/05/2015 at 12:10

          totally agree on trading plan … i am following a similar approach. riewoldt named mcbean as cover for vickery so could be a solid option … most rookies are ok if they play 6-7 games

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/05/2015 at 14:39

          Derek what do u consider a full premo backline? I have newnes, ibbo, thumper and oxley who all scored over 90 but don’t consider them premo despite them scoring at a premo rate in Def? I think anywhere around 95 will be a great Ave in Def this year. So have no plans to trade any of them at the moment. MAYBE ox in Rd 12.

          @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 09:23

          with Vickery's knee, McBean is an interesting prospect

          dominates VFL level

          didn't have the best game against Collingwood, but he demands a decent defender and with Ben Griffiths absolutely becoming a beast and Jack reiwoldt showing awesome form, McBean could be a great option. better than Dale from bulldogs. for McBean i would give him until he plays second game though.

      @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:26

      good write up mate

      Aled · 25/05/2015 at 18:21

      like you said the more smarter experienced players will know about ddps. I had Hugh at the start but had to got rid of him for Oxley. His a good choice but I'm not going to say his one to go until he plays and plays a few games. Fishers out so he should be close but until his named I'm not backing him. That's a good structure but what if you use all your the majority of your trades in the byes and then few get injured and rested and no bench cover? They have to play first. How many times we see rookies play then dropped? Carlton is prime example of playing then dropping rookies . They're not looking like players who will score well or play a lot, I hope we get some like Oxley,saad, CEY type of rookies. It would be pretty useless getting those up and coming rookies in the bye rounds only for them to get dropped and score bad and then rolling the dick hoping your ddps help with stuff all trades but each to their own.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:26

    No hate here mate, and its a good discussion point

    Coming into and during the bye rounds, some of the bigger rookie names yet to play will get a game in my opinion.

    I'm now holding my trades for this period to finalize my team and ensure i have full premo team with a few $$$ to spare.

    You definitely don't need to use 3 trades per week, its all about your team structures and who you want in your team

randomcliche · 25/05/2015 at 00:09

note, to self don't type P!ss poor performance, the administrator deleted my post 🙂

not so much bang bang as machine gun fire, 18 trades to use from this week going forward, $12.8m. Steadily climbing rank (current 8.5k) from an embarrassingly low rank.

Motsy · 25/05/2015 at 00:34

Guys, if the drug business goes bad for Essendon, what will happen?

Play out the season?
Terminate mid season and we deal with it?
Terminate mid season and dons prices change?
Terminate mid season and we get free trades? (I hope not).

I've intentionally not had any essendon players in my team this year, just in case.

Anyone know?

    OldOcker · 25/05/2015 at 03:45

    The inquiry will not happen until the season finishes, Probably December.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:42

    should Essendon have not had any drug issues i would have had Heppell as a lock
    should they get through this by the end of next season hepell will be a lock

    but regardless of what happens, whilst the investigation goes on avoid bombers at all cost (except a couple of the new rookies)

    nathan · 25/05/2015 at 11:09

    Wouldnt worry about it
    No conviction till after the season

Marco_Polo94 · 25/05/2015 at 02:48

2214 this week which I'm happy with considering some of the scores i had on field. Over the moon with my 2 trades last week, Cripps to Rocky and Adams to Jacobs (which allowed me to swing TBC to forwards), netting me approximately 150 points! Not too sure I will be trading this week. Hogan, Clark, Tarrant and CEY are all on the chopping block but still have some value to accrue. I have Brown out back who i am dying to downgrade but not sure there are any viable options at the moment. Need 4 upgrades to get to full premium, feeling good moving into the top 2% this round. Good luck for the week community!

    Rick Grimes · 25/05/2015 at 06:54

    Who are you classing as a premo? TBC certainly isn't.

      Marco · 25/05/2015 at 09:16

      He’s on my bench mate! 100% not a premo aha

Rob · 25/05/2015 at 07:58

Who do me trade McIntosh for?

Can go any position due to dpp.

I have 150K in the bank.

    Ethan · 25/05/2015 at 08:48

    Dont have many options with the cash you have, look at some fallen premos in defence like hibberd and smith

    Swans2012 · 25/05/2015 at 10:43

    Hibberd, 405k, lots of upside

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:49

    I'm holding Kmac for the next couple.
    BE is only in the 40's which he can easily make
    no good options to downgrade too and Kmac hasn't reached his max yet

    nathan · 25/05/2015 at 11:07

    Im holding till something pops up or round 11 bye

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/05/2015 at 12:35

      That something should be Smith for about $50k more than kmac after the bye.

        nathan · 25/05/2015 at 12:41

        Lets hope so haha

Charlesy · 25/05/2015 at 08:20

Hi Community. Jack Steele from GWS at $117 grand may be the answer to your prayers. Mid/forward and looks like playing soon. Risky I know but may help you if you need a double trade to get your premos in.

    Ethan · 25/05/2015 at 08:47

    if he is selected most likely he will be green vested

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:50

    the canberra cannonball will get a game soon. was in my starting line-up pre season. absolute beast. i will get him as soon as he gets the green light

    nathan · 25/05/2015 at 11:06

    Absolutely be getting a game soon
    Has had a couple of 30+ possie games in a row
    I was pretty keen at the start of the year but wasnt named so i moved on

      derek · 25/05/2015 at 11:37

      I hear that he is very close. it is just hard to get a game at GWS at the moment. DPP player as well, he will be a must have.

        nathan · 25/05/2015 at 12:42

        Yeah thats it he might get a game but they are playing real well atm so i dont think he’ll stay in the side for too long unless he kills it

        @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 09:25

        i think once GWS loose a game he will come in.. never a good thing to omit players when your team is winning

Leon · 25/05/2015 at 08:26

Who should I trade out of: Oxley, KMac, Cripps, Tarrant, CEY.
Or do I hold all?
Help would be great.
Thanks

    Ethan · 25/05/2015 at 08:47

    It would be wise to hold oxley and kmac due to a lack of defenders.
    Tarrent should go first as his BE is potentially unreachable,
    CEY and cripps should be held for as long as possible as you will need a downgrade option

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:51

    hold all mate
    give em all one more week and hopefully some more options will open up

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 09:26

    ive had another think about this one mate, and i still feel the same. HOLD this week and see what happens.
    They could very well all hit there BE, which will get you to round 10. hold again into r11 byes and go BANG BANG BANG, up and down like in back of Moonlight Sonata

Major Mooseknuckles · 25/05/2015 at 08:28

Stay away from bloody buddy franklin… Rumoured as well as reported by Newscorp. to be playing under injections.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:52

    i was looking at him but with a BE of 100 i will wait another week. most liekly will be rested if he is on injections so could be a post bye option. thanks for the heads up

      nathan · 25/05/2015 at 11:04

      Yeah big talks thats he is struggling with a fair bit of pain so stear clear i think
      I was gonna pick him up 2 weeks ago
      Glad i went goddard instead

        derek · 25/05/2015 at 11:36

        I saw an interview with Crawford and he said that Buddy's ankle is not good.

Tom · 25/05/2015 at 09:06

During byes we only need to field 18 players, right?

what happens if we have all 22 playing on field? is it the highest 18 scores?

    derek · 25/05/2015 at 09:10

    The highest 18 on-field. if you have 20 players on-field that scored, you take the best 18 of them.

    This means you can't have an emergency score points. If you have 7 defenders who are playing and only 5 midfield, you won't be able to use your 7th defender score.

    Tophawk · 25/05/2015 at 09:22

    Yep only 18 players on the field during the byes. My goal is to have 20-22 playing guys on the field during the 3 weeks of the byes. There are always a couple of guys that spud it up each round. Like Tarrant (36) and Goldy (44). If you have 20 guys playing, then at least you can be assured that Tarrant's and Goldy's scores will not be counted and you your score will be a lot more competitive each week.

derek · 25/05/2015 at 09:25

In the words of Jock, "the rookies will appear". Jock said this before the first round when we couldn't find any rookies in defence, and sure enough, McIntosh, saad & Oxley came to our rescue.

There are plenty of Rookies who will get games in the next 4-5 weeks.

Steele, Blakely, Kolodjashnij, H Goddard, Scharenberg, Moore, Laverde, Viojo-rainbow are all close to getting a game.

There are Stretch, Glen20 & mcbean already had a game or two will get more games.

There will be Lamb & Lambert coming back from injury soon, even Nelson, Anderson, Towers & Cockatoo around $155k are still rookie priced.

We will find our downgrades!!!!

    Locked and Loaded · 25/05/2015 at 10:18

    Cleared up my earlier question lol. So what you were saying above is theres no reason to bring in a rookie after round 14 as a cash cow but purely a downgrade option to build the chest? Whic is spot on

      derek · 25/05/2015 at 10:52

      The rookies you are going to be bringing in over the next few weeks, it is unlikely that you will be able to trade them out before the end of the year. it is likely that they will sit on your bench for the rest of the year. If they generate cash, great, but it maybe to late to be able to cash them in.

      We need to cash in the rookies we have now. I still have Saad, McIntosh, Lever, CEY, Krak, McKenzie, Miller, Cripps, Tarrent & Clark.

      having bench cover is important, but with the use of good DPP players you won't need to have many.

        nathan · 25/05/2015 at 11:02

        Yeah we need to cash in but we will still need cover too
        So people just need to make sure they dont pick the cheapest for the extra 5/6k

Dee · 25/05/2015 at 09:31

what is everyone's opinion on M. Hibberd? Scored 116 this week, maybe he is slowly finding form and is really cheap @ $406K. BE of 51, he is only going to go up from here on and is a perfect example of a fallen premium going down over $100K last week. It's either him or J. Lewis @ $538K, he's BE is still 117 and maybe thinking of grabbing him next week…… thoughts please community, appreciate it!

    Locked and Loaded · 25/05/2015 at 10:20

    Have had him all year seemed to get his mojo back was running well off half back and provided an option evry time the ball was being rebounded back out. Hopefully that was his turning point,

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:53

    i am staying away from DEF upgrades at this point but Hibberd is as good a choice as any this season.
    my first upgrade will be Malceski once he plays another game and bottoms out

      BKW · 25/05/2015 at 13:16

      Aren’t you worried about malceski’s dodgy knees? Very risky

        @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 13:19

        yea i am.
        but im hoping this time off,
        plus waiting for him to bottom out with 2 games (current BE of 150) means i should have enough data on him by then to make a judgement on his fitness / knees and he will be below $400k

        plus Ox and Saad, as far as im concerned are keepers in my team at this stage and should they keep scoring the way they are it will be hard to get them out of my team.

          Dee · 25/05/2015 at 14:13

          Agreed…

    nathan · 25/05/2015 at 10:58

    Im an essendon supporter and hibberd has started to play his running game over the last couple of weeks so i can see him start scoring like he did this week more often then not

      Dee · 25/05/2015 at 13:19

      I have to agree with all of you, thanks for sharing your thoughts lads…. I'll just have to do a double upgrade next week, hopefully J. Lewis doesn't go up too much.

    AaronMagpie · 26/05/2015 at 12:41

    i would grab lewis rd 12

Shemm · 25/05/2015 at 09:46

thoughts on lids low BE and going off his tits. or should i look to danger simpson or kelly

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:54

    look for lids post bye
    im a tiger man and i wouldnt be surprised to see him rested or snot vested mid game to manage his achillies

    that said, he is a gun and if we hear no injury concerns LOCK

    keep checking in on richmondfc.com.au

Tom · 25/05/2015 at 09:56

What is happening with Lumumba?

    SCaddict · 25/05/2015 at 11:11

    Only doing what he knows best and that's being an ordinary Supercoach player sorry to say. Has only averaged more than 80 in a solitary season so has never been fantasy relevant really.

    Will probably need to be traded to a proper premo at some point perhaps during his Rd13 bye.

      Dee · 25/05/2015 at 13:20

      Lumamba = BURNMAN 2015

        Antonio · 25/05/2015 at 14:48

        Lumumbu to Hibberd. Is that a good trade?

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 09:29

    im holding him in the hope that he can pull his finger out.

    not liking my chances but who knows. just like Melbourne he could come out and do something

    AaronMagpie · 26/05/2015 at 12:42

    traded Lumumba to Picken few weeks ago happy as

Sarah · 25/05/2015 at 10:04

This year sure is an average year!! Hoping my team can start performing soon.
Two upgrades this week:

N Brown to B Smith
Cripps to Selwood

I know Smith still has a relatively high BE (and I can afford a round 11 bye player in my backline, is actually better for it) but I think he's cheap enough and after a week's rest will start to show his early season form again.

Boy this year is tough.

    nathan · 25/05/2015 at 10:56

    Im looking at smith too
    Hoping he shows what we know he can do

Brillsy21 · 25/05/2015 at 10:06

Should I trade Lumumba to Hibbered or Kade Simpson

    SCaddict · 25/05/2015 at 10:57

    Both great choices so maybe pick the one who best suits your bye structures which may be Kade if you are Rd12 bye heavy like many teams.

    Byes aside perhaps Hibbo is the best bang for the buck this week and the Blues are a real worry as a whole and even though Kade did stand up like a real trooper last Friday I'm not sure that will happen every single round.

    I also reckon his buddy Cale Hooker should be considered too.

      Dee · 25/05/2015 at 13:22

      I'm getting Hibberd this week, you need a good solid defender that gives you 85-110 each week…. I reckon the man has found his form, won't come any cheaper than $406K all year. Mark my words… My opinion.

        Dee · 25/05/2015 at 13:23

        In saying that you could have the same argument with B. Smith….

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 09:30

    if i have to, i will hold out for Prince to B.Smith or Malceski

cooky · 25/05/2015 at 10:51

need a downgrade option for tarrant this week, come on!

    SCaddict · 25/05/2015 at 11:17

    < crickets chirping >

    Perhaps Dale if you are truly desperate and he can hold his spot this week but it's hard to go gaga over that option really.

    Lambert could be back after the Tiges Rd11 bye but that's mega speculative at best. Similar story for Lamb.

      Dee · 25/05/2015 at 14:15

      I think Dale is a risky pick and won’t generate much cash…. My thoughts. I’m gonna overlook him and wait for legitimate cash cows to come and there will be plenty.

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 09:31

    Hold onto Tarrant this week mate

    he played Freo

    you cannot blame him for the low score

Captain Pugwash · 25/05/2015 at 10:52

Biggs is a lock. Wasn’t traded to the club to play at the Scrays! (IMO)

Yep $200K but job security.

&&&&& Based on Bevo’s response to the Skin Flutes situation, looks like hell be back this week if he’s available.

    Swans2012 · 25/05/2015 at 11:04

    I’m warming to him, Biggs that is, big spend but happy to spend it if a certain starter….

    northernsoul74 · 25/05/2015 at 11:05

    Biggs was awful for the Doggies. Be lucky to keep his place.

    Ethan · 25/05/2015 at 13:01

    no way is biggs a lock,majority of his possessions ended up to the other team. Will be lucky to keep his spot in the team

nathan · 25/05/2015 at 10:54

Im looking at sorting my backline out this week
By tradeing ellis yolmen and tarrant im able to bring in hibberd and smith (if he plays)
Doesnt leave and money in the chest but gives me a backline im happy with till later on in the season
Trades are running thin but team is almost set
Just under 2300 this week and my team is climbing the rankings
With no decent players on the bubble and only a small war chest this might be the safest option for my team to continue to move forward

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 10:55

    how many trades do you have left?

      nathan · 25/05/2015 at 11:23

      After this week 17
      Been a bad year but inly need 1 mid and 1 forward to have a full set side the just alterations to get the pendles and co to have a top flight side

        @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 11:31

        17 Trades left!

        ouch that hurts.

        i thought i was struglling a bit with 20.

        I guess you have to decide wether or not you want to trade hard through the bye rounds.

        if you do, then you may have to hold this week.

        if your confident in your structures going into the bye rounds then go BANG BANG and get your DEF line sorted. only issue will be if you get any LTI's

        Maybe consider one DEF upgrade (SMITH). with the horizon showing some hopeful talent you may be able to pick em off one by one

          nathan · 25/05/2015 at 11:38

          Yeah the good thing is my team is almost right so i dont need to trade heavy into the byes
          I have a few rookies ill trade out when needed and hold the rest
          I still have to trade out saad, McIntosh, krakour lonie and clark
          But as long as i font cop any more LTI i should be right cox thats only 5/6 more trades and should have a little bit of coin left
          Fingers crossed haha

            @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 11:44

            I have saad, kmac and krak. i will be holding these boys a bit longer

            tarrant is my highest BE rookie, but im going to hold him, if he hits his BE he may still generate a bit of cash.

            i wanna make no trades this week and hold onto 20, with the view of these good rookie potentials on the horizon.

            that said, i have the prince Lumumba… absultly gut wrenching but im making the hard call to hold him

              nathan · 25/05/2015 at 12:25

              I feel your pain ive had griffen parker and selwood from the start
              parker all good now but its hard not to smash my phone when i see some of the outputs

          nathan · 25/05/2015 at 11:44

          Yeah i was looking at just the one trade this week
          But ill probably bring hibberd in instead of smith
          As smith has freo if he plays

            @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 11:47

            SMITH playing freo is not ideal

            and he has a BE of 127.

            if he playes this week i will defintely bring him in the following week. too cheap to ignore

              nathan · 25/05/2015 at 11:52

              Yeah thats my thinking too

Jimmy · 25/05/2015 at 11:13

Too late to jump on Lever community??

    nathan · 25/05/2015 at 11:24

    206k i think you might of missed it mate

      Dee · 25/05/2015 at 13:15

      forget it…

        BKW · 25/05/2015 at 13:19

        Agree – last week was the time to nab him

    SCaddict · 25/05/2015 at 11:29

    Fraid so.

    Already has a positive BE this week and perhaps has less than $100K more to make now as a rookie key defender. Maybe Goddard will get a call up soon as Jock alluded to on the podcast??

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 11:32

    i concur with the other comments
    200K = too expensive

    Other good propects on the horizon.

    If you need cash, trade in H.Goddard with the hope he plays soon

Mitch · 25/05/2015 at 11:41

need some assistance this week community!
sitting just outside the top 5k so want to make a run home!

backs – shaw, oxley, kolojasni, newnes, mcintosh, lever, brown, hamling
mids – fyfe, pendles, beams, parker, selwood, griffen, saad, miller, cripps, yolmen, mckenzie
rucks – goldy, maric
forwards – gray, d.martin, swan, goddard, salem, clark, tarrant, krakour

with 23 trades left and 225k in the bank
steer me in the direction of the best trades community. going for overall rank
really want saad in my defense after having to switch him to mids to get lever in last week

thanks community!

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 11:51

    Swap Saad into DEF
    Bring Brown into MID and upgrade for a Premo Mid

    You could swap Gray into MID, and upgrade Cripps to a premo FWD

    i say spend that warchest as there are a few rookies on the horizon who are looking like getting a game

    nathan · 25/05/2015 at 11:51

    Cripps to rocky
    That doesnt affect your byes
    And if yiu want saad in deffence youll want to trade ouy oxley due his price which leaves ypu 600k and bring in a mid
    Like sheil or lewis or danger

      nathan · 25/05/2015 at 11:55

      Or even tarrant to pretty who ever yiu like

    derek · 25/05/2015 at 12:19

    Oxley >> Rocky (via Saad)

    Cripps >> Parker

      Mitch · 25/05/2015 at 12:20

      already have parker

Tom · 25/05/2015 at 11:49

ranked in the 600s and want to catch the leaders.

im looking at bringing in PODS (under 5% ownership) like Ward, Hannebery, Boak to help me catch them.

is this stupid? should i stick with the big guns? after all theyre owned by a lot of coaches for a reason.

    nathan · 25/05/2015 at 11:59

    Good idea to try catch but

    Boak not a great scorer atm
    Ward has all the kids to go up against and hannebery is apart of the sydney juggernaut
    But of the three id take hanners

    derek · 25/05/2015 at 12:08

    they are good options, but like you said they have been avoided by people for a reason. I would be looking at players who should be owned more, but because of injury or suspension aren't. IE: Sidebottom (0.7%), Ollie Wines 2.6% (he was BOG until he ran out of gas in the last quarter), Sloane 4.7%, S Selwood 0.6%.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 13:05

    Callan WARD = Gun
    I think he would be one of the best POD selections this season

      Swans2012 · 25/05/2015 at 22:06

      Agree

    Ethan · 25/05/2015 at 13:08

    its a calculated risk either of the three are good players but if you miss the train then its hard to catch it. However if the train derails then you'll be laughing. You shouldnt really bring in so many POD's even at rank 600. If you follow the pack and make 1 or 2 changes then you can soar up the rankings.

    Bec · 25/05/2015 at 15:16

    I think Boak might be carrying an injury watching him yesterday.

Snake Martin · 25/05/2015 at 12:08

Hi Community, another ripping Podcast lads!

Thinking below option this week:
-Downgrade: CEY to T Dumont (nth melb rook on the bubble) for cash and bench coverage only. Anyone have any insight on this guy?
-Upgrade: Cripps to Hannabarberry.

Good option considering my team below????
Really trying to beef up the MIDS. Although its my weakest link at the moment, DEF in general with low overall averages and inconsistencies across the pickings, I'm really finding it hard to justify spending in this area.

DEF: Dmac, Shaw, M Johnson, Oxley, Saad, LaMoomba (lever, a Pearce)

MID: Fyfe, Pendles, Hannabarberry, Danger, Jelwood, Griffo, Rocky, Vberg (d mackzine, t dumont, c smith)

RUCK: Blitz, Big Ivan (m cox)

FWD: Gray, Martin, Swan, A Walker, Bont, Tich (krak, steele)

last week scored 2,287 (with Crips and CEY on field)

Planning to tough it out through the bye rounds and not make any trades… fingers crossed. only 18 left

thanks

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 13:09

    i dont like Dumont as a selection

    2 games and a high score of 32

    with A.Swallow still to return.

    If you can have one bench player with a green light so one of the rookies who might be getting a gig soon such as….
    (STOLEN FROM A PREVIOUS POST FROM DEREK)

    Steele, Blakely, Kolodjashnij, H Goddard, Scharenberg, Moore, Laverde, Viojo-rainbow are all close to getting a game.

    There are Stretch, Glen20 & mcbean already had a game or two will get more games.

    There will be Lamb & Lambert coming back from injury soon, even Nelson, Anderson, Towers & Cockatoo around $155k are still rookie priced.

      Dee · 25/05/2015 at 14:24

      there’s a lot better selections than Dumont…. Unless you’re that desperate.

        Snake Martin · 26/05/2015 at 09:52

        appreciate the advice guys. cheers

Enrage! · 25/05/2015 at 12:13

Is 17 trades left (after trades this week) too little.

Note that all my trades bar 1 have been used for upgrades so I am only 3 players away from full premo now. I’ve gone with the theory of reaching full premium ASAP so have used my trades to get me there.

With 3 players left to upgrade I should have 11 trades left for injuries and sideways trades with a full premo team.

Thoughts?

    nathan · 25/05/2015 at 12:20

    Im on the same boat as you bud
    I dont think its too little but yiull want to watch how you use them from now on
    I guess it if you are trading due to form slump or injuries
    My trades have been because of injuries
    I stiff have griff selwood and parker
    Had all from the start

    papas · 25/05/2015 at 12:22

    sounds good mate! i’ve nearly got a full premo team aswell with 16 trades left!
    Went Lonie-Zeibell last week
    this week looking at… TBC-Jacobs

      Enrage! · 25/05/2015 at 12:29

      Yep I ditched tbc this week as well, he’s a massively consistent scoring gap in my team and is costing me games – have traded down miller to menadue and TBC to Mumford.

      Plan to finish my mids with pendles or rockliffe next week and then I’ve got Macintosh and saad to replace in the backs to have full premo.

        derek · 25/05/2015 at 12:33

        will you get Gaz when he comes back?

          Enrage! · 25/05/2015 at 12:46

          If he comes back good that will be a sideways trade I do, possibly Griffen or whoever my lowest performing mid will be at the time.. Most likely Griffen for Gaz (if he comes good)

            derek · 25/05/2015 at 12:54

            he won't be cheap.

              Dee · 25/05/2015 at 14:25

              When is the GOD coming back? I haven’t heard any news at all…. still says indefinite.

                TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/05/2015 at 09:55

                They said last night around Rd 15

          @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 13:11

          i am going to get Sloan in as my last MID spot.
          once he plays one more game he will be below 500k

          I still have Andrew Swallow so as a final upgrade to my Mid 8 position i will look for GAJ but otherwise ive got no room.

          hopefully GAj will do a rocky and decide to just say stuff it and loose all his value

        Glorin · 25/05/2015 at 19:31

        I reckon having TBC as r2 from start has cost me a few thousand spots. Lesson learnt for next year. Dumped him for maric and the extra 70 odd points won me 3 games this weekend.

shane · 25/05/2015 at 12:18

After making a few upgrades and $233k in the bank I'll be sitting tight leading into the byes and hopefully stay in the top 4k.
B: Houli Johnson Taylor Newnes B.Smith Saad (McIntosh Lever)
M: Kennedy Steven Lewis Treloar Selwood Griffen Bont Rockliff (CEY, McKenzie Glenn)
R: Goldstein Maric (Read)
F: Gray Martin Swan Bennell Clark Krakouer (Tarrant Lonie)

    nathan · 25/05/2015 at 12:21

    I think you really need to find a way of getting fyfe
    And i think blokes like him money doesnt matter

      derek · 25/05/2015 at 12:32

      have you left any room for Gaz?

      good team though!

        nathan · 25/05/2015 at 12:45

        Im not leaving room for gaz in my sode ill just be cutting the weak link for him when he comes good

        shane · 25/05/2015 at 13:31

        After the byes I hope to use the cash to move the bont into the forwards and upgrade either a CEY or Krak to fyfey.

        Apart from the need to get fyfe in it might also make the choice to put the C on a bit easier.

    Ethan · 25/05/2015 at 14:37

    no fyfe, no pendels. will be a struggle to sit in the top 4k

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 09:39

    i agree with the community

    good team to get ya into the byes but you absolutely must find a way to get either (OR BOTH) Fyfe and Pendles

    Mark · 26/05/2015 at 22:57

    How many trades left? You have a great side but you are shooting yourself in the foot big time by not having Fyfe & Pendles, your lucky Pendles is so cheap grab him ASAP along with FYFE actually make FYfe priority because you will be loosing a ton of ranking positions now that most teams are becoming full premo sides.

    I'm ranked 2887 overall, with 21 trades left, however this week prior to round 9 starting I'll have 19 trades left coz im trading Cripps out for Rockliff & Lumumba out for Hibberd this week.

    Compared to your team, yours is much more complete yet im ranked allot better, Id say this is because of the FYFE & PENDLES fact. HERE IS MY TEAM below:

    DEFENCE
    Shaw, Oxley, Hibberd
    Saad, McIntosh, Lever
    EMG
    Goodes, McKenzie

    MIDFIELD
    Fyfe, Pendles, Priddis, JPK
    Beams, Dangerfield, Parker, Rockliff
    EMG
    Miller, CEY, Heeney

    RUCKS
    Goldy, Bliavs
    EMG
    Read

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

    You'll need to sell another rookie to try get enough cash but seriously you need FYFE as of yesterday – Switch the Bont forward via Krakour then trade Krakour to Fyfe if you can find that extra cash because if you dont do this before round 11 your ranking will be around 10 to 20k.

    Good luck

Charlesy · 25/05/2015 at 12:24

Oh my. Jimmy Bartel is in hospital with an infection in his knee. I have 5 forward premos and want him as number 6. Get well soon jimmy. And community rwyhif. Welcome

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 13:12

    if you dont have Franklin he is going to be dirt cheap after his next game

      Charlesy · 25/05/2015 at 14:06

      Already got him Wheels. Gray Martin buddy Goddard and swan. Was hoping to close it with Bartel.

Jrod · 25/05/2015 at 12:27

What are peoples thoughts on Dahlhaus post bye? Looks an obvious and safe pick to me.

    Enrage! · 25/05/2015 at 12:31

    Picked him up 3 weeks ago he is a gun and scores goals as well. No risk or getting tagged either with Bont getting all attention.

    nathan · 25/05/2015 at 12:45

    Very keen
    Just have other issues

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 13:13

    not for my team but he is having a good season and only in 4.4% of teams

    Jimmy · 25/05/2015 at 13:19

    Had him from the start, he's a gun. Consistently gets around 25 disposals and a goal every week. Good option

    Ethan · 25/05/2015 at 14:35

    not sure, since i have the bont i dont want 1 peforming bad and one doing well

Mitch · 25/05/2015 at 12:37

How many trades should we have before and post byes?

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 13:14

    i have 20 but lots of people have 17 +

      Dee · 25/05/2015 at 13:26

      Im on 20 as well…

        @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2015 at 13:30

        are you making any trades?

        im holding this week

          Dee · 25/05/2015 at 14:28

          Yeah I’m bringing in Rockliff this week…. that’s a LOCK. Still contemplating on bringing in B. Smith or Hibberd, if I do I’ll be down to 18.

            Locked and Loaded · 25/05/2015 at 14:43

            I have 19 and will most likely hold this week. Although am very tempted to pull the trigger and grab Parker while he's still good value

            @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 09:40

            im glad i had rocky last week, save a trade this week

Nicholas · 25/05/2015 at 13:01

Hey community,
Just wondering what i should do this week i have 260k and a potential double upgrade. I could go ibbo to tmac and cripps to parker. Wondering what you guys would think is my best bet this week. I have 19 trades and not happy with defence right now. My round 11 bye has a little players out (round about 6). I will post my full bye structure later.

Def- shaw, taylor, saad,ibbo, mcintosh, lever( leslie, hamling)
Mid- fyfe, priddis, selwood, grifen, lewis, rockliffe, miller, cripps (cey, krak, d mckenz)
Ruck- goldy, nic nat (read)
Foward- gray, martin, franklin, goddard,swan, tarrant ( hogan,clark)

Thanks for your help and time

    Ethan · 25/05/2015 at 14:38

    it would be better if you got rid of a mcintosh before ibbotson

    Derek · 25/05/2015 at 15:44

    No room in your team for Parker, unless you are not going to get Rocky and Gaz

      Nicholas · 25/05/2015 at 17:03

      i have parker
      so what do you recommend?

        Nicholas · 25/05/2015 at 17:04

        i meant i have rocky not parker

    @TheNoLanguage · 25/05/2015 at 17:08

    I would hold Ibbo, he got another 90 on the weekend and for a bloke that only cost 350k an average over 80 is decent considering the options down back. Love the Parker move if you are gonna get him now is the time!

    Dean · 26/05/2015 at 23:17

    Swap Cripps to Parker this round, this is your last round to get him at a discount. Do NOT trade Ibbo out for anyone in defence because apart from Shaw & McDonald they are the only defenders that are consistent, the defence is far to volatile.

    If you are ranked in the top 7k then you should firstly trade Cripps out for Parker and then trade McIntosh out for Hibberd but from my calculations you will be only $2,000 short, if you currently have $262k in the bank then you can do it. Hibbered will go up in price from now on, he is only $400k

r2d2 · 25/05/2015 at 13:09

My team – def – shaw Yeo Oxley saad lumumba t hunt (Mcintosh lever ). Mids — Pendles fyfe Lewis Parker danger Griffen Cripps krak (CEY Mckenzie lambert ) rucks — mAric Nic nat (read ). Fwds — gray goddard dusty swan tbc tArrant (clark lonie ). . . Currently in top 2 pc ,, I think tbc is a Prob but with byes coming up , do I leave him till post bye ?? Thinking just lumumba to Simpson this week … Shore up def a little , or Cripps too rocky ?

    r2d2 · 25/05/2015 at 13:13

    20 trades left …201 k banked

    Glenn · 25/05/2015 at 16:09

    Cripps to Rocky a no brainer in my opinion

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 09:43

    206 days until the new Star Wars movie is out

YellowNBlack · 25/05/2015 at 13:16

Hi all,

i have held sloane since his injury hoping he would come back a bit sooner. i haven't heard anything indicating this will happen.

is it worth giving him the chop or should i continue to hold since I've already held him this long?

appreciate any thoughts!

cheers,

    Ethan · 25/05/2015 at 14:39

    wont return till after byes i reckon.

    Matt · 25/05/2015 at 17:12

    Adelaide site says he is back training and could be called up in 2 weeks.
    Source http://m.afc.com.au/news/2015-05-25/injury-update-round-9

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 09:44

    chop him, wait for him to play another game or two (BE of 162) then upgrade a rookie to him when you get him around $450k

      YellowNBlack · 26/05/2015 at 15:22

      If i do ill be able to get to pendlebury and then cripps to rockliff…

      or should i hold off till the byes to get peddles since he will still go down until then?

zeesus · 25/05/2015 at 13:19

Cripps and Ox to Rocky and B Smith…?

    Dee · 25/05/2015 at 13:28

    very juicy… like it heaps mate!

RTK · 25/05/2015 at 13:47

Hi everyone,

Love you work Jock, Great stuff!

Just wanted a bit of advice for this weeks trades:

Current Team:
DEF: Shaw, Gibbo, Taylor, Ibbo, Tosh, Saad, Brown, Lever
MIDS: Fyfe, Pendles, JPK, Priddis, Selwood, Dangerfield, Cripps, CEY, Krakour, D.Mckenzie, Glenn
Rucks: Goldy, Nicnat, Cox
FWDS: Gray, Swan, Dusty, Bontempelli, T.Mitchell, Tarrent, Clark, Lambert

got 180K in the bank

My initial Thoughts is Cripps to Rockliff and then Tarrent via dpp krakour then saad and bringing in Simpson down back. meaning no dpp MID?FWD in my mids though.

Thoughts?

    derek · 25/05/2015 at 13:54

    not sure if that swing works. You might have to go Cripps >> simpson (via Saad) and tarrent >> Rocky (via Krak)

    @TheNoLanguage · 25/05/2015 at 17:06

    Rocky is a must have I'm bringing him in this week. I would probs wait a week on Simmo he played a blinder last week but it might be pulling the trigger a bit early, Carlton are a rabble I wouldn't bank on that score every week

Gareth · 25/05/2015 at 14:05

What do people think of Biggs from the doggies as a bench option in order to generate cash? What is his job security like? I am thinking sometimes it is better to look beyond (e.g. last year with Miles) the dirt cheap options. Thoughts.

    Sarah · 25/05/2015 at 14:37

    Wait and see how he performs in game 2.

    Ethan · 25/05/2015 at 14:40

    yes he starts. but he was very ordinary against melbourne with many turnovers

      Gareth · 25/05/2015 at 16:00

      I guess as a bench option, I am only looking for someone that plays every week and gets 60-80.

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 10:00

    i would hold until he plays another game. could easily get the snot and score 20-30 then be a poor prospect

Liam · 25/05/2015 at 14:07

Hi community, thoughts on this trade
Cripps to rocky
Cheers.

    derek · 25/05/2015 at 14:12

    that's the one I'm doing this week.

Tofor · 25/05/2015 at 14:30

Lumumba makes me sick. Held and held abmd it keeps getting worse.. How do I cure this blight on my team? 80k in the bank… Lever?

    Derek · 25/05/2015 at 15:45

    Simpson

    Tofor · 26/05/2015 at 08:37

    Hey Derek, thanks for the suggestion, loved it. Went straight to grab Simpson, but realise I'm about 13k short..
    That damn Lumumbra has dropped to a pathetic 360k….

      Rick Grimes · 26/05/2015 at 09:29

      Kelly from Cats. First game back he pinged 87. Will play through the mids a bit too with the injuries they have. His injury was balls related so unlikely to flare up again. Reckon he's good for 90-100 average and only 400k. The other on the horizon is Brodie Smith but I want to see him produce a score before I pounce.

        Tofor · 26/05/2015 at 12:06

        Interesting one Rick! Def one to consider. Season high of 92 this year and low average thus far.
        Wonder if he can step it up with the damaged goods.

      Swans2012 · 26/05/2015 at 12:59

      Hibb?

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 10:00

    hold for B.Smith to bottom out

Matt · 25/05/2015 at 15:14

who is there to downgrade to this week?

Rob · 25/05/2015 at 15:46

This is how my team looks with 2 trades lleft this week and 200k in the bank.

BACK: Shaw, simpson, newnes, lumumba, Lever,Saad ( mckintosh and hamling)
Mid: Fyfe, selwood, Gray, D.Mckenzie, Kennedy, Shiel, Cripps, Priddis( CEY, Krak, Blakely)
Ruck: Ryder, Nicnat( read)
FWD: Roughy, Martin, Bont, Hogan, Franklin,Tarrant( Lonie and lambert)

I don't really want rocky this week i will get him after his bye. I want to get rid of Lumumba and not sure if to get rid of cripps.

Any suggestions?

dave · 25/05/2015 at 15:50

What’s everyone’s thoughts on Priddis? Overpriced, or about right? I think he will go top 8 again, and he has the rnd 13 bye, so was thinking cripps to priddis. My other option was to pick up Deledio as my F6 to finish the fwds off. Opinions?

    Jonesy · 25/05/2015 at 16:32

    Overpriced, lucky I got him when he was 534k

      Brillsy21 · 25/05/2015 at 16:33

      If you don't have Selwood get him in, also has the round 13 bye, I am doing cripps to Selwood next week

Vince the quince · 25/05/2015 at 15:52

It's QUIET around HERE without AMERICANMAGPIE

I miss that guy

Jacob · 25/05/2015 at 16:11

If Trent Dumont isnt vested this week ill go Tarrant to Dumont via Krakour swing. He will be a great rookie option if he can avoid the vest for the next few weeks. With Norths woes atm i reckon he'll get a couple of starts.

    Swans2012 · 25/05/2015 at 17:29

    I have similar thoughts

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 10:03

    im avoiding Dumont
    2 games
    hasnt broken the 30 pt barrier
    poor choice

Nick · 25/05/2015 at 16:22

Thoughts on Salem or tarrant up to deledio? Have 300k and would be only trade for the week leaving me with around 80-100k depending on the player.

    Dave · 25/05/2015 at 22:54

    Salem, Tarrant at least will play through the byes

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 10:21

    Lids = great player, but i would wait until after the round 11 bye. hold

Pino · 25/05/2015 at 16:50

Community, this is my current team:

Shaw, Hodge, Hibbo, Newnes, Oxely, Saad (kMac, J.Kelly)
Fyfe, Pendles, JPK, Lewis, Rocky, Griffen, Rich, CEY (Krak, dMac, Lambert)
Gray, Martin, Swan, Bont, Clark, Tarrant (Salem, B.Dale)

I have 100K in the bank and 19 trades,
Should I do anything this week or leave it as it is?

Thanks for all your help

I'm looking to trade Cripps this week and was wondering who would be the best option to trade in out of Dangerfield, Priddis, Treloar, Parker or even someone else?
Your thoughts are greatly appreciated.

@TheNoLanguage · 25/05/2015 at 17:10

Hi guys, would love any input on my side leading into byes:

Def – Shaw, higgins, gibson, ibbo, saad, lever (mcintosh, goodes)
Mid – Fyfe, Pendlebury, JPK, Beams, Parker, Griffen, Rich, Cripps (CEY, Krak, Mckenzie)
Rucks – Goldy, Maric (O'brien)
Fwd – Dusty, Swan, Buddy, Hogan, Tarrant, Clark (Salem, Lamb)
290k and 22 trades ranked 4000 odd – going for overall

Trades I'm looking at this week are Cripps – Rocky and Salem – Goddard, sorts out
my mids and forwards due to lack of options down back and leaves me with 16-17 keepers
but no bank. Also is having Rich, Beamsy and Rocky in the same team a bad thing?
I'd planned to swap Rich for Rocky but he's playing too well and his BE (39) is lower
than Cripps?

Would love some Community wisdom here guys, much love!

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 10:30

    Goddard with a BE of 142
    get him after his Bye

    Jambo · 26/05/2015 at 10:40

    Bring Krak into your forward line via trading Tarrant, bring in Rockliff. Trade Goodes for Rance or Murphy. Your backline looks your weakest part of your team.

Pauly Walnuts · 25/05/2015 at 17:15

For what's it's worse Gibbs n Judd won't play for Carlton this week, love seeing this mob bleed, If you look under arrogant in the dictionary Carltons name will come up ! Sorry Lekdog !

Hey guys need some help with my trades leading to the byes
Def- shaw, higgins , newnes, hibberd, lever (mckenzie, hugh goddard)
Mid- fyfe, neale, dangerfield, lewis, cripps,beams rockliff, bont, (krak, billy stretch, lambert)
Ruck- nit nat and goldy

Rd 11 i have 17 playing
Rd 12 i have 16 playing (17 if lambert plays)
Rd 13 i have 17 playing (18 im lambert plays)
Wanted to trade salem this week but there isnt many rookies to choose from.
Is there anybody i should trade or get and does it matter if i get a few donuts during the byes.

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 10:32

    rd 11 trade in some rd 13 players
    rd12 trade in round 11 bye players

    rd 13 finish your team off with the rd 12 bye players

    done and you will ensure you have 18 on field players each week

Marco_Polo94 · 25/05/2015 at 17:36

Great podcast, hope you're feeling better Jock! So glad I drew up some spreadsheets 8 weeks ago for the byes. Has made trading a lot more organised rather than chasing points! Thoughts on downgrading Clark/Tarrant to upgrade Brown to Simpson? Simpson has a BE of 52, Brown's price will drop, however Clark and Tarrant both have a decent chance of gathering a little more coin this week. I'm thinking I'll make the trade as the price change for both players will basically negate each other. Trading very heavily but when I see a fallen premo on the bubble I prefer to snaffle them then and there.

Cheers community!

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 10:34

    my thoery this week is to hold tarrant ( i dont have clark but i would hold him with a BE of 40)

    im holding all players no trades this week

Tom · 25/05/2015 at 17:42

tbh this is probably the best week to get rid of Griffen lol

he will probably come out with a 60 this week like he has been doing every second week for the year

    mcleal10 · 25/05/2015 at 17:47

    highly doubt that. Especially against his old team.

    Tophawk · 25/05/2015 at 19:58

    I traded out Griffo last week. He got 116 this week and will probably be fired up against the dogs this week. If you have him, it might be worth seeing if he backs it up against his old team. If he spuds again this week like clockwork, then get rid of him for sure.

    I traded Parker in for Griffo and I am comfortable with that. Parker was awesome value for money last week and came out with 124 this round. I am salivating about his prospects against Carlton on Friday night. I reckon he will get the big V put on him!! Peace of mind is a great thing!

    Cheers

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 10:35

    your probably not wrong, but you must hold until his bye unfortunately

Mitch · 25/05/2015 at 17:48

Is Glenn worth the trade in now with Prestia out? Surely will get games

    dannyyboyy · 25/05/2015 at 18:51

    im waiting til thursday to decide on any trades, it would help a lot out if he were named this week, thats for sure!

    Tophawk · 25/05/2015 at 19:24

    We will find out on Thursday at team selections. If Glenn is named as a starter you could consider trading him in. Even if he is named as a starter he will still be a green or red vest risk. I would hold out on this trade until the "late changes" are announced 80 minutes before the bounce before making the call on Glenn. If he is a sub, I wouldn't bother. He has to start.

    Cheers

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 10:35

    you would think he is a chance. anyone know what his form was like in the Magoos last weekend??

    Jambo · 26/05/2015 at 10:37

    How about Andrew Boston? He's killing it in the reserves and sitting on the emergency list the last few weeks.

      Timmy · 26/05/2015 at 17:45

      Boston was told to get into shape 4-5 weeks back by the club

Dylan · 25/05/2015 at 17:57

Hey Community!

360k already in the bank, anyone got some downgrade suggestions?

Shaw, Oxley, Simpson, Saad, Smith (McIntosh, Lever)
Pendles, Fyfe, Kennedy, Rockliff, Griffen, Cripps, Miller, Ellis-Yolmen (Krakour, Vandenburg, Lambert)
Goldstein, Jacobs (Brooksby)
Gray, Martin, Swan, Bont, Mitchell, Clark (Tarrant, Salem)

    UDA · 26/05/2015 at 05:49

    Downgrades got to wait till thursday. Upgrade salem and ur fwd line is done

    Rick Grimes · 26/05/2015 at 07:25

    I'd get an extra defender, only got 7 back there!

Liam · 25/05/2015 at 18:06

trade out krak or tarrant ?

    mcleal10 · 25/05/2015 at 19:34

    Tarrant imo

    Jimi · 25/05/2015 at 22:56

    Wait till Thursday, one might get dropped and and solve all your problems.

shezza · 25/05/2015 at 18:41

I am taking a risk and trading out eoy and henderson from ade to Priddis and Scharenberg. I believe Scharenberg will be playing 1s in the next few weeks.

    Tophawk · 25/05/2015 at 19:19

    Why trade out Yeo? He will only miss one week. The guy is in scintillating form for West Coast. Yeo for Priddis is a sideways trade.

    I would think long and hard before pulling the trigger on Yeo.

      shezza · 25/05/2015 at 20:03

      Not Yeo, yolman ellis or whatever he calls himself

        Jason WindowLicker · 25/05/2015 at 21:53

        Nice one Shezza

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 10:38

    I traded in Tarrant before he played his first game
    Put me one week ahead of the comp as his first score was hufe and everyone was in a mad rush to get him.

    ive seen a few theories stating that if you need cash you should look to the likes of some of those pre-season rookies who are looking the goods.

    If you bring Scharenberg in now. and he does get named in the next week or two, it gives you a leg up on the comp.

    can also backfire and leave you with a bench full of non playing rookies on the bubble

    that said, Scharenberg is a good choice as he has been around a while and c'wood would be desperate to get games into him

l. Gibbs · 25/05/2015 at 20:02

which premo forwards should I be getting in? looking at Devon Smith, Daulhaus, Goddard and Delidio, Better options?

    Tophawk · 25/05/2015 at 20:42

    For brilliant value for money it has to be Delidio. Lids is still coming off injuries so keep that in mind. If you want peace of mind and pay a little extra for consistent output, Goddard is very nicely priced. Dahlhaus is at a premo price but will pump out good scores week by week.

    Personally, I like taking a bit of risk. Delidio for me.

    Cheers

    Jimi · 25/05/2015 at 23:00

    Goddard for consistency, or Daklhaus for a solid but POD (for now at least). I wouldn't go for Deledio just yet, he's being managed, I'd take some more time to suss out how it will effect his scoring.

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 10:39

    Lids looks in good form
    i would go lids
    or wait a couple of weeks and get Goddard cheap

Andy · 25/05/2015 at 21:10

Evening Community!

I got $455k to upgrade Cripps and Miller. I’m thinking of going Rocky and Priddis or Rocky and Lewis.

Lewis is $100k cheaper and will allow me to finish my forward line the following week. But Priddis is very consistent.

Thoughts community?

    SCaddict · 25/05/2015 at 22:38

    I'd save the coin and go with Lewey. Hawks have the yummy Suns and Saints up next on the menu too.

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 10:39

    you missed the boat on Priddis
    Go Lewis
    or Ward as a POD

Thomas · 25/05/2015 at 21:20

What are the communities thoughts on shane edwards,great pod, only in 1.7% of teams, bad week this week but otherwise looks good

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 10:45

    in amazing form. sums up richmond really when there best player this season is Edwards

    i think you will find his form drops off as the tigers get stronger

    Edwards is not a proven premo. If your team is absolutely stinking it up and you r going to go full on POD then Edwards could be an option

    try these guys out instead

papas · 25/05/2015 at 21:55

Titch-Deledio I know titch is good and he is finally getting game time but can he hold his spot the whole season? and i wanted to get in deledio before he goes up in $ to much. good or not?
which ruckman? Blicavs, Jacobs or maric?
And also which player is a better trade in? Bont or sam mitch? sam mitchell is looking very good especially with lewis back in.

    papas · 25/05/2015 at 22:11

    sam mitch or bont or dangerf*

    Ethan · 25/05/2015 at 22:23

    you brought him in for 3 games. waste of a trade

      papas · 26/05/2015 at 07:32

      not really, i brought him in so i could make a bit of money to get a better player

    Derek · 26/05/2015 at 03:46

    I have SMitch from start, he bloody good.

    He just warming bench for Gaz.

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 10:47

    You cannot seriously be thinking of trading out Titch already

    If you traded him in to make $80k then do a sideways trade then sorry to say you are not playing this game correctly.

    Listen to the wisdoms of the community. Do NOT do this trade.

    Get Lids by all means, but not at the expense of Titch

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 11:08

    in regards to Rucks.
    No to Blicavs because he is not a proven Premo. Sure he is having an amazing season, but in SC we need proven elite in our teams

    Sam Jacobs
    Adelaide
    Position: RUC
    550,300 +28,200 -69,800

    BE = 80

    Ivan Maric
    Richmond
    Position: RUC
    559,200 +32,300 +23,300

    BE = 69

    Based on these facts i would be going Jacobs
    reason = Jacobs has lost value, but is cheaper than Maric. I am a richmond fan, but if i had to choose i think Jacobs is a slightly better quality ruckman, and more likely to get tap out to advantage and has a good injury history

    that said though i wouldnt be bringing in either re: r11 bye

    so to sum up

    dont do any trades you have suggested

      Swans2012 · 26/05/2015 at 13:02

      I agree 100%, Jacobs best option, durable and seems to be hitting his straps

Traderlyf · 25/05/2015 at 22:08

when you trade Yeo in and then he cops a week on the sidelines… ahh!

    Jambo · 26/05/2015 at 10:31

    The luck of the draw aye. Felt the same with Brodie Smith's 16 and concussion the week I brought him in. Sometimes all can you really do is laugh.

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 12:48

    When you trade in Sloan and he looses over 100k then gets injured

Sam · 25/05/2015 at 22:11

Hi community need a bit of help.
Got Andrew Swallow just sitting on me bench. Word he is will most likely miss another 2 weeks with the broken thumb. Do i trade (up or down) or just hold out and keep him. My thoughts were he'd be a good D7-D8 till very late in year when i can upgrade him. I also have SLoane sitting on me bench.

THoguhtS???

    Jimi · 25/05/2015 at 23:05

    I don't even see him being anywhere near the top 10 (or even top 30) mids for average points scored this year (he's currently 78th). Now he's injured I'd trade him.

    Jambo · 26/05/2015 at 10:35

    Trade Swallow, he has the same injury that kept Sidey out for 6. If you don't have Rocky, you should consider bringing him in his stead. If you do have Rocky, look at Joel Selwood.

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 11:10

    i saw on Norht Melb website that he will be right to go this week.

    He had surgery last monday and stated that with the team playing on the sunday, he should be right

    so hold

    absolute worst case he will only miss this week
    http://www.nmfc.com.au/news/2015-05-19/swallow-si

      Swans2012 · 26/05/2015 at 13:03

      Remember when wells was right to play this week??? I’ll be surprised if he plays, use this injury as an excuse to chop him

Rob · 25/05/2015 at 22:58

Hey guys!

How do i make money this week without affecting my team in a bad way? This is how my team looks with 2 trades lleft this week and 200k in the bank.

BACK: Shaw, simpson, newnes, lumumba, Lever,Saad ( mckintosh and hamling)
Mid: Fyfe, selwood, Gray, D.Mckenzie, Kennedy, Shiel, Cripps, Priddis( CEY, Krak, Blakely)
Ruck: Ryder, Nicnat( read)
FWD: Roughy, Martin, Bont, Hogan, Franklin,Tarrant( Lonie and lambert)

Any suggestions?

    Jimi · 25/05/2015 at 23:14

    There's only 2 ways to make money, downgrade a premo to a mid pricer/rookie (almost always a bad move) or culling a fattaned rookie.

    Given there are no good fresh rookies on the bubble it'd mean rolling the dice on an un-bubbled rookie (very inadvisable, see how many got burned by Glenn @ GCS a few weeks ago).

    So I think you should just sit tight, wait and see what rookies come up on the bubble over the next few weeks.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/05/2015 at 21:35

    Why do u wanna make cash you have $200k? No point down grading while no good rooks have appeared to make a quick buck.

Penny · 25/05/2015 at 23:10

    Penny · 25/05/2015 at 23:11

    100k in the bank

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 11:13

    with 15 trades left and potentially 9 trades to be made through bye rounds i would be holding all trades till the byes

    15 trades left = struggle street

Dean · 25/05/2015 at 23:26

If your planning your whole team in order to have best quality players during the bye rounds then you'll have no hope at doing well in SC.

In round 7 Sloane had to go so I brought in Priddis because I thought he was way to cheap to ignore so I paid $534,000 for him, he now costs $635,100 you don't want to be waiting after the bye rounds to bring in these ultra premiums.
In round 7 I also got rid of Minson, to bring in Blicvas for $478,700 in reality I probably should have gone with Jacobs but I have really loved what Blicvas has done overall.

In round 8 Vandenberg had to go due to his huge break even and in came Parker for $516,100 and he's now worth $553k – even though Vandenberg ended up scoring massive im not sorry I made that trade because I would have waited a week or two, while Vandenbergs price rose by 15k but Parkers price rose by 37k and will go up another 30k if he scores around a ton.

And in round 9 Cripps out and Rockliff in and Lumumba out and Hibberd in. This makes my midfield completed this week with:
Fyfe, Pendles, Priddis, JPK, Beams, Dangerfield, Parker, Rockliff…

If your going to worry about having your best players on during the bye rounds you'll be screwed overall, for example in round 12 I currently have 13 players out and 6 of them are Premiums in the likes of: JPK, PARKER, PENDLES, SWAN, HIBBERD, FYFE but im not concerned at ALL because I'll have them playing in round 11 & 13 when the other two byes hit us. However by the time round 12 comes along I'll almost positive I'll only have 10 players out. I believe Hibberd is way to cheap for a potential defence premium even though his bye is in round 12, if you chose to wait until after round 12 to get Hibberd, chances are he will cost you a extra $100k

If your structuring your team around the bye rounds that just is disastrous, if you like premium players that you believe have bottomed out in price and you want them then there is no point waiting until the byes are over before you get them, a perfect example is Parker – if you like him this week would be your last chance to get him at a discount. It's to late to get someone like Priddis now.

Granted you want to make sure you have a even spread of players over the 3 bye rounds, you don't want to be in a position where you have 15+ players out in a particular round. After round 9 if all goes well I will have 8 players out in round 11 – In round 12 I currently have 13 players out but that will change to about 10 or 11 come round 12 and finally in round 13 I have 9 players out. .

I just wouldn't over stress about the bye rounds, I think its pointless… Good Luck to you ALL..

    r2d2 · 26/05/2015 at 01:00

    Totally agree

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 11:14

    Wayno would be proud

    stuff the byes

    Timmy · 26/05/2015 at 17:48

    Spot on. I'm bringing in Hibs even though Rance would be a better option for me with the byes.

Ruck: Goldy, TBC (O'brien)
Foward: Dusty M, Tom Mitchell, Zeibell, Hogan, Mitch clark (Tarrant, Lamb)

Any thing I can do to improve? Definetly want to get Belch out

    Jambo · 26/05/2015 at 10:26

    How many trades do you have left? Trade Tarrant for Buddy or you could paint the fence and trade TBC and Tarrant for a rookie (look at Dale) and Sam Jacobs. Your forward line looks your weakest part of your team though.

      sctrader · 26/05/2015 at 12:16

      tbh I thought the weakest part was my Defence, i’m only sure that heath shaw will be consistent through the season.
      Thoughts on TBC-Blicavs instead of Jacobs?

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2015 at 11:17

    for RUC cover i would be looking for Ryder in the FWD line

    that said you went with TBC in your RUC line when alot of SC players went him in the FWD line

    Can you trade TBC in the FWD line, upgrade one of Hogan, Clark or Tarrant for a premo RUC, then look in the future to bring in Ryder

    Patrick Ryder
    Port Adelaide
    Position: FWD, RUC
    438,300 -31,000 -105,100

    BE = 130

    Bad news in reality is your probably stuck with TBC for a while yet, but that said surely he cant get any worse and who knows, he might actually get better

    Derek · 26/05/2015 at 11:59

    You have to many non playing not generating cash rookies. Wagner?? Serious!

      sctrader · 26/05/2015 at 12:13

      haha he is just there becuase at the start he was all i could afford 🙂

Jambo · 26/05/2015 at 10:21

Don't stress at all about the byes, the system looks at your top 18 player scores each bye.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/05/2015 at 10:58

What happened to Freeman from the pies? All the rage pre-season and now nothing? Is he injured, not good enough, need more time in the Magoos?

    Timmmy · 26/05/2015 at 11:25

    Scar tissue on his hammy affecting his running ability. Should be back playing VFL soon. Doubt we will see him this year at AFL level.

      Youngy · 26/05/2015 at 13:37

Only have 403k to replace him and already have Ox and Saad. (Hibberd is just out of reach)

any recommendations community!!!???

    Danners16 · 26/05/2015 at 15:43

    Brodie Smith? Maybe downgrade or downgrade another rookie elsewhere to upgrade him

Gareth · 26/05/2015 at 11:05

Thoughts on side trade from Judd to Caddy? Is Caddy too unreliable or could he get me to a forward super premium before the finals?

    Youngy · 26/05/2015 at 13:47

    I feel he is to unreliable and it is always risky to do a sideways trade

    Danners16 · 26/05/2015 at 15:44

    Giant POD, I would be now looking at Gibbs since Mick has been sacked, could get to form. Stevie J is another option

What is wrong with J Glenn. Is he injured?

    Youngy · 26/05/2015 at 13:38

    He was, now he is just fighting for a spot

    Sean · 26/05/2015 at 16:46

    Just saw on GCS website that he won't play this week, maybe Round 10

John · 26/05/2015 at 12:45

P.Cripps to K Jack

D.WELLS to McGovan

THOUGHTS OR SAVE THE CASH

    Swans2012 · 26/05/2015 at 13:14

    Not convinced on jack this year, dropping down the midfield pecking order at the swans, save the cash imo

    Youngy · 26/05/2015 at 13:46

    Not convinced on McGovern or Jack I feel there are better options out there like Selwood and Simpson.

    Danners16 · 26/05/2015 at 15:41

    Sounds good

AaronMagpie · 26/05/2015 at 12:46

Which Rookies to trade 1st??? CEY, Miller, Saad, oxley, krak, and salem… Im holding onto Vberg and hogan till their bye round

    Youngy · 26/05/2015 at 13:39

    I would think Salem.

Chuck · 26/05/2015 at 13:16

Thoughts on Hannebry v Mundy v Shiel ???

    Danners16 · 26/05/2015 at 15:41

    Shiel, I suppose you might have a few out in Round 12 bye

Tim · 26/05/2015 at 14:27

Trades Left: 17 Bank: $117,900
Def: Shaw, Newnes, Gibson, Lumumba, McKenzie, Lever (McIntosh, Hamling)
Mid: Fyfe, Pendles, Priddis, Shiel, Dangerfield, Gray, Griffen, Rockliff (Miller, Krakouer, Glenn)
Ruck: Blicavs, TBC (Read)
Fwd: Martin, Swan, Roughy, Bont, Ryder, Deledio (Clark, Dale)

Thoughts?

    Brookesy · 26/05/2015 at 15:17

    Strong team. Maybe try to upgrade TBC, or swing McKenzie into your mids to create a DPP there and use your bank to trade Miller into a defence premium.

      Tim · 26/05/2015 at 15:47

      Cheers Brookesy.
      I was on the verge of trading TBC this week but have held off for now.

    Danners16 · 26/05/2015 at 15:46

    A solid team, Miller-Menadue, and upgrade TBC or wait on Goldstein or you could upgrade McIntosh

      Tim · 27/05/2015 at 11:01

      Danners16, Brookesy & Derek – Would you recommend Mummy as an upgrade option for TBC?

        Danners16 · 27/05/2015 at 11:27

        Yes or Jacobs

    Derek · 26/05/2015 at 17:12

    TBC must be your priority. Costing you points

T.J.M · 26/05/2015 at 15:48

Thoughts on my team?

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

Was thinking of going Cripps to Rocky and having $80,000 in the bank then not sure on the next move. Or I'm thinking of going Cripps to Lewis. Thoughts?

TOM · 26/05/2015 at 15:49

I hear Kolo from Geelong is in the mix. Has been tearing it up in the VFL, could be a good rookie downgrade option if he is named.

    Derek · 26/05/2015 at 16:08

    I’ll be surprised if he isn’t named

      TOM · 26/05/2015 at 16:14

      Would be be a viable pick this week Derek? Via Swing sets downgrading either Lonie or Tarrent?

Pinidu.C · 26/05/2015 at 17:11

Hold or trade Salem and Tarrant. I've only got 19 trades left. Please help!!

Derek · 26/05/2015 at 17:15

Malthouse is gawwwennn

    dannyyboyy · 26/05/2015 at 17:20

    death by media, that evil machine.

    Sc newby · 26/05/2015 at 18:56

    Unrelated completely, but are you by any chance the bundeena bunnies Derek??? Read some information on your team and rankings and what not and they look remarkably similar to my league opponent this week who is also named Derek lol
    May the super harts bring there a-game this weekend as I'm sure they will have to

TOM · 26/05/2015 at 17:59

Is rocky a must? I'm not sure if its better going Rocky or Lewis? Both have things going for and against them. Thoughts?

    SCaddict · 26/05/2015 at 19:09

    Hard to look past Rocky for sheer value right now.

    Donavan · 26/05/2015 at 19:46

    Absolute must.

    I had him at the start of the season, and thought he was worth every bit of $700k+, so at $465k he cant be passed up.

      Paul Walnuts · 26/05/2015 at 20:19

      He had a huge first half with 73 SC pts at half time ,then fitness gave out ,only played 76 mins but still scored 120, barring any injury he is the biggest bargain in SC history – IMHO

TBBD · 26/05/2015 at 18:11

Thought on Salem and N.Brown out for B.Dale and K.Simpson?

    Donavan · 26/05/2015 at 19:50

    Not sure. I think there is better value than Simpson in defence, players like Hibberd, plus with a change in coach at Carlton, they may ask Simpson to be accountable, could you imagine having your defenders be accountable.

    If Dale is selected he is not a bad cheap option, but he has been starting as the sub the past 2 weeks, and has impressed. With Goodes out he may avoid the vest.

Scotty · 26/05/2015 at 18:35

When does Josh Glenn return?
Good downgrade option for the rookie mids who are slowing down in cash generation.

    Sean · 26/05/2015 at 19:02

    Not this week, maybe round 10 – GCS Website

    SCaddict · 26/05/2015 at 19:07

    Still overcoming that ankle issue and won't be available for selection this week but potentially next week if things go well.

Donavan · 26/05/2015 at 18:56

Appreciate the communities thoughts, as I am working through my bye trading strategy.

Is it too sideways to be trading prior to round 12-

Out – Newnes & Ibbotson for IN – B.Smith & Rance

Total prices are close but my thinking is that both are upgrades as Brodie Smith's prices has been heavily impacted by his 2 concussions, and would have a way higher average if not for 2 rounds.

Love you thoughts, thanks

    Dee · 26/05/2015 at 19:27

    I don’t like it… semi sideways trading I reckon. No cash generated and Ibbotson will come good… I’m holding him.

Danny · 26/05/2015 at 19:46

If I paint the fence this week it will be Tarrant & B.Goodes out.
Need to top Def.
J.McGovern $443,100 @ 95.6
or
H.Shaw $505,400 @ 98.9

Will have $260K in bank if I get McGovern
Both have same bye.

Please share some wisdom.

    Danny · 26/05/2015 at 19:48

    McGovern DPP, Fwd/Def, 88 BE
    Shaw 92 BE

      Stevo · 26/05/2015 at 19:50

      Shaw or McDonald

Pete181 · 26/05/2015 at 19:47

Hey does anyone know how long Brett Goodes is out for with the broken arm?

    Stevo · 26/05/2015 at 19:49

    2 months

Stevo · 26/05/2015 at 19:51

Simpson or Clancee Pearce?

    Pete181 · 26/05/2015 at 20:48

    Tough one, hard to choose clancee now since he started so cheap…
    Kade has a larger ceiling, however clancee is in a much better team,
    Clancee for mine, I reckon he'll score more consistently now that we know he won't tag.
    I think their end of year average will be within a few points of each other, Kade's scoring is gonna be more erratic though.
    Freo has 3 of the top 4 scoring players, the whole team is scoring well, and I can't see that slowing down anytime soon.
    Clancee is also dual position, when unsure always go the dp.

      Stevo · 26/05/2015 at 20:58

      Cheers Pete! Also thoughts on Hibberd? Scored his first ton of the year after some pretty average scores but will this be the beginning of the consistency we all once saw?

        Pete181 · 26/05/2015 at 21:15

        I'll be honest, I've only seen him play once this year and I don't like commenting on players I haven't watched play. Stat trawling can be done by anyone and isn't a good indication on its own…
        Maybe an essendon fan can give a better indication?

          Stevo · 26/05/2015 at 21:18

          True, might just stick with Clancee

            Locked and Loaded · 26/05/2015 at 21:32

            Kade Simpson without question not even worth a thought!!

              Locked and Loaded · 26/05/2015 at 21:33

              And in regards to Hibberd pure value right now. Both Simpson and Hibbo before Clancee

                Stevo · 26/05/2015 at 22:07

                Mmmm this is tough

                  Stevo · 26/05/2015 at 22:07

                  Nah I'll finalise with Clancee fits my bye structure

#BELCHISAFLOP · 26/05/2015 at 21:40

Blicavs OR Jacobs OR Maric. So confused do not know who to bring in to get that bastard bellchambers out

Enjoyed the podcast as always fellas.
WDYR
Miller or Cripps to Rocky?

    Krazee-Eyez Killa · 28/05/2015 at 14:30

    Have only got Cripps out of those 2, but if I had both, I’d trade Miller. Cripps’ ceiling is big and with Judd and Gibbs out, you’d think he’s gonna have to go in and try get a fair bit of it. May rack up a decent amount of contestants possessions against the Swans too given the way the Swans play

Krazee-Eyez Killa · 28/05/2015 at 14:25

Do you guys think it’s worth culling Tarrant for J Lewis via DPP? Lewis priced at 538k with a BE of 115, which is getable against the Suns. Only in 11% of teams as well. Thinking he’s gonna be in or if not close to being in the top 8 mids come the end of the year
