Patch’s Panic Room – Round 11

Published by Patch on

Concrete Booking AgencyPatch - Supercoach Panic Room Master

The byes are finally here, community. Eugh. Yuck. The looming cloud is here. Players from Adelaide, Brisbane, Carlton, Hawthorn, the Bulldogs and Richmond will miss this week.

We’ve finally got the green light to ditch Bellchambers, but some other pain has come with it – key rookies will be missing this week.

Fortunately, Jock is BACK this week, after escaping the flu. So with our spirits high, let’s sail into the storm.


THE NEWS

BREAKING NEWS: Brodie Grundy has been stretchered off and sent to hospital following an incident at training this morning. He was in very good form as a mid-pricer before ANZAC Day and finds himself in 15% of teams. Being stretchered off at training is a bad sign, and I neck braces were sighted. I doubt he will play – Collingwood seem to be indicating that’s the way it will go. However, he is reported to be okay, which is relieving news. Check the comments or twitter for more updates – I’ll chuck them in when I can!

Grundy1

1:00 UPDATE – Collingwood haven’t ruled Grundy out of playing on Sunday.

Grundy 2

Tom Bellchambers has been dropped like a sack of potatoes. It seems Supercoachers aren’t the only ones who are running out of patience with the big man. Will leave NicNat to possibly monster Jake Carlisle and Joe Daniher on Sunday, and leaves me – as an Essendon fan – desperately hoping Shaun McKernan gets upgraded after round 12, where each club is able to elevate one rookie to their senior list. However, Bellchambers has to go. I’ll cover this in the patch up, so on with the news!

While discussing midseason rookie elevation, word is, this rookie at Port Adelaide could be Nathan Krakouer, so if you still have him it might be worth holding on to next week. Furthermore, Jack Sinclair could be elevated after his bye as he has been dropped back to the rookie list, hence his omission this week.

For two weeks now, the Gold Coast twitter has had Josh Glenn slated to return from his ankle injury. He has not been sighted since. This is ominous. The last time a plater went missing up on the Gold Coast, Charlie Dixon returned to us as a reanimated shadow of the footballer we once knew (he is also back this week). Which leaves the question that needs to be asked of the Gold Coast Suns is not ‘When will Glenn be back’, but ‘Is Josh Glenn deceased?’

Speaking of Gold Coast and people being deceased, Harley Bennell’s continued absence from their side is leaving a lot of teams lingering on the brink of death. However, Nick Malceski returns, so one to keep an eye on. Especially as he is rumoured to be the sub!

Aaron vandenBerg will miss the next three to four with an injured hamstring, meaning he has to go from our sides. Karl Amon has been hit with a calf injury (not dropped as initially thought), while Mitch Clark has not yet recovered from his calf strain. There’s not a huge amount of intel on when these two will be back. Ruck rookie Keegan Brooksby has injured his calf and will miss.

Hugh Goddard is again on the extended bench and could play, as has Brayden Maynard at Collingwood. Shaun Edwards has been named for the Dons, alongside Orazio Fantasia (who looks to be the sub) and Elliot Kavanagh, but with Hocking, Winderlich, Myers and a ruckman still to come into that side in a few weeks, I wouldn’t be going near one of the Essendon rookies. See how Edwards goes – I reckon he’d be the most likely of them to get extended game time.


THE PATCH UP

The byes are here, but there are those wiser than I who have said wiser things than I can on them. Check out Dex’s guide to the byes and Lekdog’s exquisite video, as well as the triumphant return of the Thursday night podcast. I will instead help solve the question of what we do with Tom Bellchambers.

Bellchambers has been dropped, as mentioned in the news, which renders his position as backup ruckman and 6th or 7th forward redundant. I have agreed with the logic of Jock and Lek – keep him as backup. He is no longer backup. He is a sack of potatoes weighing down our sides. He has to go. This week. But to whom?

On top of the ruck table, there are six players averaging more than 100.

RuckmanAveragePrice
Todd Goldstein 111$512,700
Stefan Martin108$574,200
Ivan Maric105$572,600
Shane Mumford103$550,600
Mark Blicavs103$522,000
Sam Jacobs102$532,100

If you’ve got the cash, go as high up this table as you can. Goldstein is offering great value at $512’700 for the #1 ruck in the comp, who should be the #1 ruck by the end of the year. Pick him, or anyone else on that table. If, however, you don’t have cash, or desperately need to conserve cash for the byes, you’re in a pickle. Brooksby is missing and Wright scored 35 in his first game, so rookie rucks are off the cards. Mid-pricers are looking threadbare at best. Tom Nicholls is at $472’000, and is averaging 92 (101 over his last three) and looks the top dog at the Suns, but isn’t much cheaper than the best players.

The best we can do to approach a straight swap is looking at Max Gawn from Melbourne. Scored 98 in his first game, with 31 hitouts, 11 possessions and two tackles. At a massive 208cm, he has the jump on all but one ruckman in the competition, giving him a better shot at the crucial hitouts to advantage. (If anyone knows where to find HO/A stats, give me the head’s up!) Now he won’t score 98 every week. He played 9 games last year for an average of 63 and 13 in 2013 at 67.

Now keep in mind, Melbourne might not give him a long run at it – Jake Spencer only got 4 games (averaging 93 points, nonetheless) before he got switched to Gawn. Mark Jamar still lurks around the Melbourne Footy Club, and while they’re investing in youth, Gawn may only be a game or two away from falling back into the twos. Take a good, hard look at your team, community. You go up to Goldstein, Mumford, Martin and co and you don’t have to trade again. I bring up Gawn as a last resort – no more. You have been warned.


TRADING PLACES

Another week of trading places, another week of Googling how to spell Dan Aykroyd’s name properly.

Eddie Murphy’s

-67 – Josh Glenn*
-60 – Andrew “The Bun” Boston
-55 – Joel Hamling
-43 – Trent Dumont
-27 – Dan Robinson
-27 – Alex Pearce
12 – Dan McKenzie
18 – Lance Franklin
23 – Mitch Wallis

*missing, believed dead. We tried getting the Suns to organise a search party, but had to explain search parties are unlike the parties they’re used to up there. We’ve confiscated the alcohol and they’re out there searching now.

Dan Aykroyd’s

171 – Josh P Kennedy
168 – Lachie Neale
166 – Steele Sidebottom
164 – Matt Priddis
142 – Jobe Watson
141 – Robbie Gray


THE ROOKIE RUMBLE

This segment won’t be active during the byes. If he’s playing, he’s on the field. Supercoach takes your BEST 18 scores that are onfield. So if you have nineteen playing, your lowest score will not be counted.


So on that note, I bid you again a good weekend, community.

Hey Patch I need to bring in 2 round 11 rookies to help me with round 12-13 who should I bring in? Will Caleb Daniel get a game soon? thanks.

Patch

I don't know the VFL situation at the kennel, but here is the Doggies' site write up of the rookie situation;

"Caleb Daniel, Zaine Cordy and Declan Hamilton have all progressed well at VFL level. Daniel was named emergency in the Club’s Port Adelaide match in round ten and looks set to be the next debutant from the class of 2014."

But how soon that will be, I don't know. There aren't many round 11 rookies around; Bailey Dale, Lukas Webb, Corey Ellis and Dylan Buckley seem to be the only relevant rookies. All are big sub risks.

Moorey

so are there any fwd rookies for clark or bellchambers (through DPP)???

BKW

Maybe Hugh Goddard if he makes final team?

Patch

Forward rookies are slim at the moment. Dale and Webb are the only two you could look at, unless we see McGrath or Lambert back soon (which I doubt we will) – or as BKW says we can wait until 5pm tonight to see if Goddard makes the side.

Maestro

Or maybe McLean from the Bullies.

David

1 trade for me this week that people should consider: Krakouer to Lambert (bank 170k) both have fwd mid eligibility, and i dont intend on using this player on ground anymore as I will be full premium midfield after the byes. I can use Lambert as a floating donut for loopholes, but would be a bonus if he actually gets named in the next few weeks and plays (he is listed as 1 week away, but im sure he will need VFL time).

Fortunate to I have 18 playing players this week, and 15 next weeks (+3 trades makes it 18) so I am able to make the trade. An injury could hurt this week but hey its not supercoach unless you take a risk!

Thoughts?

Patch

Not a bad one, David. We will need to soon look into trading DPPs who aren't playing for that very reason – and with any luck he should play later in the year.

If you've done your spreadsheets and can cover the byes, go for it!

derek

for the same reasons above, I am going to Motlop. He is $388k DPP perfect as a bench player later in year. Why have a DPP who doesn't play, get a potential gun

hedski

Thank gid I never went near belch. Great write up.

hedski

Not sure who gid is.

Previously On Lost

The comment about the search parties is absolute gold. Your finest work Patch! Yet another great article tho. Bennell and Amon has screwed my bye structure, needed one of them to play, now must hope D-Mac pulls up.

panther

thoughts on which trades i should do this week a double downgrade or double upgrade
option 1- leaving me with around 540k in the war chest
M.johnson—> Enright or Mcgovern
H.andrews—> A.Pearce
CEY—>mid rookie

option 2- leaving me with 6k
M.johnson—> Enright
CEY—> Mcgovern via DPP
Saad—> laird

hedski

I’d hold off on saad a week but if you need to strengthin your back line option 2 then saad t rookie next week for $. Option 1 looks tasty tho for $.

Patch

I reckon we need cash at this stage; I'd go for option #1 personally.

hedski

I’d say that depends on you team patch!

@Georgeg12945913

Great stuff mate,
Im not keen on boston with so many gold coasters coming back including ablett, should i just leave him and go somoene like hamling or clurey who i know will get game time thanks,
Already grabbed pearce

SCaddict

Clurey's JS is probably no better than Boston's. Trengove could easily push him out of the side next week so buyer beware applies.

Patch

Backing SCaddict here (like I normally do mate – love seeing you round on a Friday!), Boston is probably as safe a rookie as we've got at the moment.

The Other Commenter

What are your thoughts on NicNat to replace Bellch?

Patch

He looked like he'd found some form a few weeks ago, but had a 79 last week. If you can't afford to go up to a rolled gold premium ruckman, he'll do the job for the rest of the year, however if you can go to Goldmember I'd do that in a heartbeat.

The Other Commenter

I already have Goldy, the plan was always to bring in another ruckmen during / after the byes, but with TBC now dropped, as suggested I think now is the time. My biggest problem being, if I have done my maths correct, I need some with a R13 bye so I can cover the 18 players all weeks.

Patch

If you can afford Mumford, get him instead. Otherwise NicNat will sit around that 90-95 scoring range for you without missing too many

mcleal10

better options elsewhere. Not Nic Nat's best season

Zak

What “premo” defender (I say that loosely) would people reckon to bring in? I can either bring in a rd 13 bye defender this week or rd 11 bye defender next week. I’m all covered for the rd 13 bye so that’s not an issue.

My backline is:
Shaw, Gibson, Higgins, Newnes, Oxley, Saad

I was leaning towards Houli, or maybe Macdonald.

mcleal10

simpson

Patch

I'd go for Houli mate, and probably Brodie Smith next week at sub 400k.

Zak

I was gonna saad to Houli.
And I was also gonna trade out oxley for smith next week too.
After last weeks scores I’m tempted to trade out newnes over oxley for smith though.

Or do you reckon hold off on that trade all together?

Patch

Every few weeks we toss and turn on Oxley – tons and then 30s and 40s. I'd swap him next week.

SCaddict

That's my plan too – Houli next week and Smith in a fortnight.

Zak

Agreed but I can’t decide on newnes or oxley haha. I almost think oxley will be reliable newnes.
I’ll sit back and watch this week.
Who are you trading out for smith SCaddict?

SCaddict

Probably K-Mac mate. Good chance K-Mac will go up a further $20K and Smith drop another $20K after Rd12 which would virtually make them identically priced if things pan out that way.

derek

there is only one true "Premium Defender" – Zac Dawson. When will he be back?

General Soreness

Zac Dawson is such a good defender he even manages to stop himself!

General Soreness

half my midfield are in the Dan Aykroyd's…………..I 'm going to pretend that it is a Blues Brothers or Ghost Busters, Dan to make me feel better.

OH almost forgot, brilliant work again Patch. Your dedication to helping the time poor is astounding.

Patch

Thanks champ – keep pumping up the ranks! Your side is rocking, just like a Blues Brother Dan Aykroyd, so we'll go with that one!

Andrew

What's your thoughts on Nic Nait to Goldy?

I know its a sideways trade but this is the cheapest we'll see Goldy and Naitinui is delivering stinkers week in week out except for that 150.

derek

Hold Nic Nat for this week. He doesn't have anyone to play against. will go massive. I wish I had him.

Patch

Jack Billings is a late out for the Saints – Minchington in. Final 22 named at 5 tonight.

TRIGGER HAPPY

Gonna hurt this week. I had enough with bennell, TBC and Grundy to field a team this week now all missing till round 13. Now 11 is a write off but 12 I expected them out anyway. Geez I hope priddus or Co go large this week.

SCaddict

That's a shocker to be struck down by 3 big outs like that. We do months of meticulous bye planning and then something like that happens. Hopefully the players you do field step up in their absence to stem the bleeding.

Antonio

What do we do with TBC if we have him in the forward line?

General Soreness

Thank him for his lack of service and trade his arse!!

BKW

I’d downgrade elsewhere and upgrade TBC (not many good forward line downgrades available) – either way he needs to go

Antonio

Move Higgins into the FWD line for TBC and bring in Pearce?

BKW

Yep that works

Brad

Which Pearce?

Hazey

Great work mate, couldn’t see what was right in front of me!

Spooners

Great stuff as always Patch.
Was thinking of next week trading D-Mac to a Premo defender and Krakour and Tarrant to two premo Forwards.

Who would be the best option in DEF out of Hodge, Simpson, Enright, Harry Taylor, Houli or T-Mac.

And FWD out of Dahlhaus, Devon Smith, Buddy or Titch?
Thoughts are appreciated.

Patch

Personally Hodge looks the goods. Shouldn't need or get another rest. Otherwise Houli. Forward, Dahlhaus, Titch, Buddy, Smith in that order.

Luke

Dahlhaus is having a very consistent and high scoring year

panther

trade M.Johnson to Enright or Mcgovern

hedski

If you have h goddard in fwd mcgovern as could b very handy later as a swing man.

Luke

Cheers patch,

Boston or kavanagh in this week? Leaning more towards kavanagh with swallow, Ablett, and Bennell looking to come back soon

Patch

Kavanagh will get a lot of the vest (not this week though) which has me very worried. But that said, his stats look very good and he's started onfield this week… hmm. Hirdy is under pressure so I hope will play some more kids… I'm having second thoughts on the Boston call.

Patch

Maybe wait a week on The Kav. See how he goes against West Coast and what his security is like after his bye.

billy

who to put the vc on selwood or gray

hedski

I reckon jelly most will go gray. Thats what I plan

I N Pieman

Gray for mine. Selwood is struggling with a hard tag

Mac

Thoughts on
McIntosh to Pearce
CEY to Boston
Clark to Goddard

General Soreness

Generates cash in the week to do it, providing fits your byes and allows for 3 upgrades next week. Do it.

Roger

Mcintosh still has money to make and doesn't have a bye after this round while trading Pearce who has his bye next round but if it can work in your team, go for it.

r2d2

What if we have tbc as a fwd 7? Who are some good options ? Around 400-460 k?

r2d2

F 5 and 6 sorry tbc … And also have clark and krak (am keeping Krak) … What too do!

General Soreness

Like Wingard, Zorko, Buddy, those type of options??

r2d2

D smith ?

Patch

Have a look at Motlop mate. Sneaky 380k and should average 90. MID/FWD eligible, very good M9 or F7 and should do the job until late. Consider. On that note, however, I won't be picking him at this stage.

derek

Motlop is going to be my M9. Going to bring him in this week, only because I need some Round 12 cover and I prefer him against Melbourne at Home in round 12 than running with a rookie score. He should do ok tonight as well.

After the byes he can be my M8 until I have cashed out all my rookies and depending how much cash that generates I can either keep him at M9 or an easy upgrade to a premium.

He will increase at least $100k in next few weeks, just as good as getting Dummot or similar cash cow, if I was to trade him out anyway.

Been thinking it over all week and that will be my move this week.

derek

DPP and can cover my forward line.

SCaddict

I'll probably be there with you Derek. He's fantastically priced right now and I'm sure I'll find a spot for him as either my M9 or F7 (as Patch suggested) once the team settles after the bye.

Probably not quite productive or consistent enough to have week in week out on your field but should be more than a handy backup to cover when an elite misses a week or two. May even be able to loop him some weeks to pick up the odd big score.

derek

Good point. After the bye Cats have 8 Saturday games followed by two Friday night games to finish the season. I can see a loophole or two working well.

Cats play Melbourne next week

Gryffindor

Community, would it be nuts to bring in Goldstein and have Jacobs (bye) and Nic Nat all in the one team this week to then downgrade nic nat next week when his 150 is out of his rolling average and i can use 400k from him to upgrade 2 rookie defenders to Hodge and Houli/Simpson

Nic Nat vs Essendon with no ruckman could go bonkerzzz and then i'd be in a shit spot with 3 ruckman in form and low BE none of which have swing elig and all playing rd 12.
Goldy averages almost 20 more points and i don't think he'll be much cheaper with a 42 breakeven. I'm sitting at rank 2000 and this could be vital to pushing into top 1000 or wasting a trade and never getting up there.

Thoughts??

General Soreness

it is sooooo nuts, that it is bordering on genius that just might work. As long as your trades are healthy it makes sense. Shark move.

Gryffindor

The old coin could be flipped to decide later on tonight General haha

General Soreness

Stuff the coin mate, go with your gut, coins lie around 50% of the time.

Glorin

Have the feeling of a friday night cliffhanger!
Did you make the trade and what are you going to do now with dog dog going big?
Cant wait for the 2016 magazine article “the gryffindor manouver”!

hedski

Sounds like crazy logic which I like roll the dice

Patch

That is as crazy as an idea I've heard in a long while. I reckon NicNat will go bonkers against us. If he does, I'd almost keep three premo rucks for round 12 to get the extra 40k he might make you?

That is brilliant thinking though.

derek

so wait….you want to do what??? bring in Goldy when you already have Sauce and Dog Dog & Jacobs? And you also have Nic nat in your team. I'm confused.

Patch

Grundy expected to play – precautionary scans only.

derek

My plan is to finish my team after the byes with a forward line full of DPP.

Gray, Goddard, Dusty, Swan, Delidio, TMitchell

I will also be bringing in (this week) Motlop, also a DPP as future bench cover in the midfield M9.

Can someone clarify for me that if I have Motlop on the bench as a Emergency, he will not only cover any late outs in the midfield, he will also cover all the DPP players in the forward line (as long as I don't have the E on a benched fwd player). I don't have to switch him to the forwad line to cover them?

General Soreness

I reckon he has to be on the forward bench mate to provide forward coverage. Don't take this as gospel though as I have never had the issue.

hedski

I think you are spot on general

derek

hmmmmmmm…. I'm not convinced.

General Soreness

FROM SC

EMERGENCIES

Select up to FOUR emergencies. Emergencies from your reserves list will replace up to four non-scoring players in your starting line-up in matching positions only.
Where there are 2 emergencies are selected in one position and only one of these is required, the lowest scoring emergency will be used.
If no emergency is available for a 0-scoring player in a certain position, you'll not receive any points from that player.
Emergencies scoring 0 will not be considered the 'lowest-scoring' and will not be used.
Emergencies can simply be toggled on or off with a click of the Emergency button.
Emergencies may be changed during each round, up until their respective match has started (at which point, they are locked into your team for that round as a selected Emergency).

derek

Thanks SC….."matching positions only" I assume is on each line. It could mean that two DPP players are "Matching".

General Soreness

Q: Can a dual position player who I've selected as an emergency cover a secondary position in my team?
A: No. Dual position players selected as emergencies can replace the score of players in your team, in the matching position AND ONLY in the position where you have them selected in your team.

General Soreness

Q: Can a dual position player who I've selected as an emergency cover a secondary position in my team?
A: No. Dual position players selected as emergencies can replace the score of players in your team, in the matching position AND ONLY in the position where you have them selected in your team.

derek

Much appreciated GS. Thought I might have been onto something there.

Lazboy

Titch or Franklin?

Locked and Loaded

Been a while guys and funnily enough since I’ve been so busy and had no time to post my ranking has dropped significantly… Question is have we missed the boat with Dumont considering him in for CEY and Rockliff out for Wines. Thoughts? Staying away from Sekwood btw

derek

Round 13 bye is good. JS good, and BE is still -43, all good!

Locked and Loaded

Cheers mate needed some reassurance

OleUnited

thoughts on these trades:
yolmen, the kraq and k mcintosh out
boston, buddy and pearce in

derek

Very nice. As long as bringing in 3 more round 12 bye players doesn't stuff you up next week

Mick

Hey guys, i was thinking about trading Fyfe out this week because he is at the top of his price. Don't think he can keep up his average.
Looking at getting in Griffen. Gets me a lot of cash for the kitty.

Thoughts

Cheers Community

Locked and Loaded

Lolll

Brooke Richards

Do it, you wouldnt

Mick

do you think getting in newnes would be a better pick

derek

That is a Shark move and a Bruyen manoeuvre all rolled into one!

General Soreness

lol

The Ranger

If there's a way you can get Fyfe out and Zac Dawson in then that would definitely be the way to go.

derek

Zac is a fine player. He outscored Johnson last week.

Dools

Hi Mick,
That is an outstanding piece of what we call here at the Whirlpool Fridge Factory "Fuzzy Logic"
Love it trade out Fyfe and go to a dead man Griffen Brilliant!!
The cash generation makes it worth it. Do it!!! Fridge loves this by the way but then fridge's fav show is Game of Thrones

splinter

hey community need some help,
witch defender i should bring in this week who does not have the round 12 bye?

derek

Any of the three Cats. Enright, Harry or Nuts. they have Melbourne Round 12.

General Soreness

do you have enough R11 players already? If so you can bring in a R11 player, if not R13. Houli, Hodge, Simpson, Smith R11, R13 Taylor, Enright, McDonald.

Patch

Hamling the other one to bring in.

Mac

Dumont? Too late?

Patch

Nope. Last call for him, though.

Tofor

Tempted going Ellis Yolmen to Dumont..
Dumont better JS than Boston?
I've 8 out this round, 12 out round 12 and 10 out round 13. Only 11k in the bank though.
Also tempted to go McIntosh to Hamling.

My forward line is clogged with rookies I can't get rid of without cash.. Lonie, Tarrant, Krakouer and Clark….

Youngy

If there where options maybe, but there is nothing out there, so I don't think it is 2 late

TOM

Neal Bullen has been named to debut this week. May be a nice downgrade target in a few weeks!

Patch

Hope so!

Tom

Ignoring their bye would you pick D Beams or O Wines? Saving $70k by going Wines over Beams is very tempting. This is for my last mid spot

Patch

Beams will score more points but not by much. So Wines presents better value. Ollie for me.

derek

All three Fremantle emergencies — Paul Duffield, Jon Griffin and Matt de Boer — boarded the plane with the team to Gold Coast, setting off alarm bells for possible late changes in the Freo camp

Patch

Ross the Boss at his supercoach destroying best.

YellowNBlack

hi all,

I could really use some help to decide my trades:

backs: Shaw, Higgins, Newnes, Oxley, Mcintosh, Kelly, Lever, Brown
mids: Fyfe, selwood, kennedy, sloane, griffin, rich, cripps, saad, ellis yolmen, mckensie, dumont
rucks: goldstein, maric, obrien
fwds: martin, swan, gray, goddard, mitchell, dalhaus, krakour, lambert

I'm thinking of doing:

Krakour – Mcgovern
Rich – Boston
Kelly – Pearce

leaves me with $410K – would love to hear any thoughts?

thanks community

Patch

Like it mate.

SCaddict

No D-Mac and Goddard didn't survive the Saints cut either folks! Emergencies only now.

The bye scrambling intensifies….

Barney

With Billings out there obviously no intention to play Goddard or Dmac anyway

hedski

Thats it donuts donuts donuts

derek

I feel like keeping Miller now and trading out D-Mac

SCaddict

Yes I'll be keeping Touk another week now even though it will likely cost cash to do so.

Down to 19 players with Touk playing and there's a good chance there will be at least one or two nasty surprises on the weekend.

BKW

I’m leaning towards trading both miller and Mckenzie out – but agree with your logic if you need another scoring player, touk should only loose another 15k or so

derek

only thing saving D-Mac is his DPP. Hasn't made enough cash yet to trade out, but if he doesn't play again he won't make anymore. Ohhhhh just makes me mad!

BKW

Yep – equally annoyed!

derek

I was hoping at least one would play. Will go into this week with 18 only on field.

Frank

Goddard out… should I just trade in Amon instead even though he isn't playing?

Patch

Go Dumont if you need someone.

Youngy

Agreed bring in Dumont, might be a bit more at about 190k but still has a low BE of -40ish

Ryan

Thoughts on Bailey Dale? Still cheap

Patch

Not going to score much. Not great JS, but not much else on offer. If you've got no choice do it.

Youngy

Don't like him at all, Bad JS and don't see him scoring more than 50 each week.

Jonhson

Hey community,

This week i am not sure what to do. I have $1100 in the bank which is nothing at all i know. I also have a low amount of 15 trades however i am nearly full premo. I am ranked at top 3%(6785). I was trying to think of the best way to get wines in this week however my round 13 bye is already a bit full. However i really think Wines can keep this form up and be a really good player to finsih with especially at this cheap price. Also would i want to downgrade some players make cash for the following rounds.

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

here is my bye structure:

Round 11- lever, rocky,deledio, lewis, martin, kmcintosh, hamling, cey,8 players out
Round 12- swan, goddard, fyfe, , saad, leslie, franklin, dmac, boston, parker-9 players out
Round 13- selwood, clark, taylor, griffen, shaw, priddis, Hogan, krak, gold, nic nat, gray, read, tmac- 13 players out

Please suggest some good trades i could do this week. i cant relly get of kmac cause then i have no rookies in the back to upgrade next week poart from saad
Would you bring in wines this week?
I was gonna go rocky to wines
Cey to kavagnah
And clark to h goddard
if not would i want to cull was thinking of next week going tirple upgrade bringing in simpson smith and danger/ sloane

Thanks for your help and time

You would overload your r13 bye by bringing in wines. Goddard isn't playing, but if you're willing to bring him in and hope he plays after the bye you could do so. Otherwise look for Dale or Webb forward for Clark. I think going McIntosh-Pearce or Hamling would be your best move to make cash, personally.

I'd trade out someone like Krak rather than CEY. That is what I did as for me I was light on Rd 11 outs and heavy on Rd 12 outs so I need CEY to play Rd 12. Krak is probably not going to be playing through the byes, so I'd flick him.

Hi community,
Have we missed the boat on Dumont? Round 12 is the difficult one for me and I'm thinking dumont may be a better option despite the extra price. Another option may be lambert from the Tiges
Your thoughts?

SCaddict

For most coaches in most situations I'd say look elsewhere. You will probably only get $100K out of him now, $150K tops, so probably not worth burning a precious trade on for mine.

Tofor

Fair point

Juzzy

I don't think so Sully. As much as I wished I had grabbed at his cheaper price I will still be bringing him in this week.
He is a tough kid and as long as umpires stop whacking him behind the play I think he will hold his spot.
Round 12 sucks so I am prepared to pay a little more for a round 13 bye and think Boston, while he could make more money, is still a speculative pick.
If you can hold though your Lambert option might work out brilliantly .

Mummy!

Then ill have 300k to upgrade mill to a premo

hedski

Do it

Josh

What do we do with Rockliff? Keep or Trade?

SCaddict

Keep at least one more week especially if you can field 18 warm bodies this round.

Caz

Hi everyone, with mcenzie not getting named is it worth going him down to pearce. Thnx

BKW

That’s what I’m thinking – he’s only made us $90k though which is slightly disappointing

SCaddict

I reckon Pearce is worth getting in this week although I will be holding D-Mac for now in hopes he can break back into that team soon.

Caz

I'm thinking of going mcenzie to pearce and Clark to Boston via dpp then going krak to wines. Had a look at saints team and looks like they have defence covered now which worries me for mcenzies job security. Thoughts.thnx

SCaddict

If all that allows you to field 18 players then I reckon it's probably worth it. Wines would be a fine addition to any team.

At this stage I can afford to wear the Clark and D-Mac donuts this week so will be carrying them and reassessing things over the next few weeks as both are probably a little premature to be trading out this round, all things being equal.

Caz

I agree with this, the only other option I have is to pull the trigger early on saad for Boston and krak to wines which gives me 18 playing and only uses 2 trades.

Marco_Polo94

Still has a negative break even, hold if you can afford to.

Caz

Would it be better to go mcintosh to Pearce instead, only problem is mcintosh is good coverage and will play round 12and13

lolattack

hey guys what does everyone think of the following trades?

clark -> pearce (via h. goddard dpp)
mcintosh -> yeo

have plenty of cover in round 13 so copping a donut from yeo isnt a big deal

only question is is yeo worth it? will he be a top 10 defender for the rest of the season?

hedski

Get mcgovern instead and use him and goddard as swingers I reckon

Cyril is Delicious

Vandenberg> Stretch, thoughts?

Patch

Hold off until we know the subs. Should be the new kid, but I'd hold just in case.

Bretto

Selwood, Gray or Wines for VC tonight?

derek

if it was at Geelong I'd be on Selwood.

I think cats will lock down Gray, so no to him.

I'm not a big fan of Wines ability to post a captain's score.

I'm saving my VC for Fyfe on Saturday.

Bretto

Cheers, put the bc

hedski

Selwood. Most will go gray

Sully321

Thoughts on Fantasia (I need a forward rookie this week to get me 18)

Patch

Not for me. Won't hold his spot for more than a few weeks, I feel.

Rooboy

Yeah that's about what he'll score 🙂

Youngy

Not keen on him. Bad JS

Krazee-Eyez Killa

Thinking of chucking the VC on Selwood tonight. If all else fails, C on Fyfe like everybody else and no harm done.

hedski

Vc selwood cap on danger

Babo

Bringing in Mark Murphy after his Bye.

Judd OUT
New Coach
Team Must RISE

He is the man to sneak in a 110avg from here onwards.

Patch

Nice call Babo, like it mate

Johnson

can someone help with my question above before lockout?

hedski

Hey johno try Clark t steele / lambert will give you $ and maneuverability wit krak then cey to wines. Done.

Johnson

how long till lambert back will he play next week could help my byes massivley

SCaddict

First needs to get over the injury and then needs to break into a winning Tiger team. Could get some action in the twos once available as he's missed plenty of footy.

@boltie_monster

need another rookie mid that is looking to play and will play a reasonable amount, doesn't matter which bye round and how many games as currently played as long as playing this week

Patch

Kavanagh or Stretch should get reasonable amounts of games, but no-one really knows.
