PODCAST: Second bye round Gawn.

Published by Jock on

Supercoach 2015Two down. And one to go.

And didn’t big Max Gawn put his hand up against the Cats on Sunday!
He features this week, as does discussion around the likes of Joel Selwood, Ryan Griffen, Patrick Cripps and Jack Newnes. We whack some of these blokes under the microscope this week and ask a very important question. Are they keepers? Which should we keep? Which should we slaughter?
Proud of some of the results coming through after a shocking round. Let’s get stuck into the show my friends.
Jock Reynolds.

Harry

Ooh can I be the first comment? I actually like Christensen, not just for numbers but for flexibility. Rotating him and Steele may be integral to ultimate success

@Rem_Wah

Zorko would be a better pick IMO – And he has the identical FWD/MID swing

Jacko1998

i agree. ive had zorko since the start and hes finally repaying the faith

Jacko1998

never

Adam

Love him as well. thinking Boomer as a M9 instead.

@wheels_1987

im looking at Steele and Lambert for the same thing

JOHN

Picken or rance?

Hazey

Picken or Houli it is for me… Am thinking Picken. Doggies draw looks good.

MC

Picken

Youngy

Neither… Simpson, Houli, Shaw, Enright, Hodge. One of those.

Danners

Picken, he is playing as a midfielder

Hazey

Thank god Yr OK Jock! I wasn’t sure if the interweb in Timor was broken, but I heard nothing from the community since last Sunday. Did yourself, Crouching & Higgo nominate yrslves as round 12 byers and head away on a little boys retreat perhaps?

Josh

Looking for some advice this week community, 10 trades left, 402k in the war chest and one upgrade to be done. Currently ranked 800th.

I'm looking to bring in Montagna, but can only do so, trading out Heeney who's meant to be back this week (and great bench cover),
OR
I can trade out Anderson to Sloane (unlikely to play another game) and have Heeney, Boston and Glenn as bench cover in the mids. Thoughts/ideas?

Defence:
Shaw, Enright, Simpson, TMac, Picken, Lever (Brown, Pearce)

Midfield:
Fyfe, Pendles, Beams, Ward, Danger, JPK, Wallis, Boston (Heeney, Anderson, Glenn)

Ruck:
Goldy, Nic Nat (Brooksby)

Forward:
Dusty, Gray, Lids, Goddard, Swanny, T.Mitchell (Steele, Read)

Josh

As always, look forward to the podcast Jock. Highlight of a sunday night, just stressing out over this decision this week!

Luke

Sloane and Montagna should score pretty much the same. Just depends if you want to spend an extra 100k for a POD.

With Mitchell and Goodes unlikely to be dropped, does Heeney get a game without a sub?, even though he's a gun, not sure if he's an automatic pick in their best 21.

Josh

How highly do you rate Boston's job security?
Reckon it's worth chipping out Boston/Heeney for a POD in montagna or pocketing the coin and going Sloane?

Luke

Not sure on their injury list, but short term he's a lock in their team. Personally i'm deciding between Sloane, Steven or Hannebery this week and leaning towards Sloane purely because he's to cheap to ignore.

Tyler

Gold coast have a lot of players on the brink of returning. Harley Bennell, Josh Glenn, Steven May, Jack Martin, Alex Sexton, David Swallow and Rory Thompson all listed between 1-2 weeks off. Then I think I heard Gazza is thinking of returning to playing this week. So I don't rate his js right now

Mike

Heeney will very likely return through the 2s given his time out, and is not a certainty to fit back in the team. As you say Goodes is firing and if Mitchell ditches his over the shoulder hoist when he feels pressured then he’ll also stay in the team. Heeney is a big vest risk at best imo.

Phil

Is sloane 100k cheaper than Montagna? If so, it's an absolute no brainer Sloane for me

hedski

Get lambert on your mid bench as swinger

hedski

Sloane!

Dean

I always planned to bring in Smith in round 13 but im now second guessing myself.

Ethan

He’s bottomed out in price
Should only go up from here

scrofl

He got 22 touches this week, it was only his disposal efficiency that hurt his score. Once he gets back into the swing of things, he'll be a 90+ averaging defender.

@wheels_1987

get him in !

Luke

gday community, who should upgrade lumumba for, already got shaw, burgoyne, newnes, smith, simpson on field

@KingWinter7

Hodge

Youngy

Agreed Hodge is your man.

@wheels_1987

im looking at Malceski next week
this week you could look at Andrew Walker as a POD

Harry

Tarrent to Gawn

Or

Tarrant to the Bont

Which is better? Please comment!?

amon

neither, both are bad trades. bont and gawn are not going to be top 10 in there respective lines

Harry

Who should I get then?
Already have swan, Gray, Dalhaus, franklin and Martin
I need one more to complete the forward line

Enrage!

Goddard for sure..Or Mitchell but still have some concerns with him!

Tyler

When you're trading a player in, Don't worry if they'll be top 10 come end of year, just worry about if they will be top 10 from here on out. Which if Gawn can keep this scoring up he will be

Danners

You don't need the absolute best players to win Supercoach, Amon

Luke

Stupid to trade Gawn in this week. Alot of better fwd's to pick then Bont.

Danners

Bont, Gawn isn't a keeper

dean

Whilst i tend to agree. Steff martin was in a similar position las year. And didnt miss a 100

Danners

He was a bit cheaper though, you're paying a bit over $400k for a risk remember, it could go right or wrong

dean

Yea this is true, but could certainly be a decent option for those still with reed at M3? could provide some great cover coming towards the end of the year.

Redgumwon

Don't forget that Geelong don't really have what we'd call a regulation ruckman. Will Gawn play that well against Goldy or a good regulation ruckman? I'd pass on Gawn

Mr chan

Do you think josh Kennedy will be a top 10 mid by seasons end?

Deciding btw Kennedy, Hannebery, Mundy or Deledio

SCaddict

I seriously doubt it. Hope I'm wrong as I started with him. Reckon Hanners is worth the money. Of course Sloane is the bargain buy mid premo this week which I'd be advocating all coaches get him in this week who don't already have him.

Mr chan

Thanks guys. yeah I’ve got Sloane already last week. Can afford $600k. I was leaning toward Hannebery too but at $486k, Kennedy prepresents great value.
And will complete full premo this week with Cripps m8

Derek

Sloane or Parker?

Mr chan

Both

SCaddict

For most coaches I still reckon it's hard to go past Sloanedog for sheer value. Currently only owned by less than 10% of teams although no doubt that % will increase significantly this week and next.

I obviously rate Parker highly too so that could be a sneaky shark move for some whilst everybody else is trading in Sloane, JPK or Pendles.

As you know I already have both in my side so thankfully not a decision I have to wrestle over this week.

MC

Possibly, but I'd prefer Hannebery over him

Luke

Out of those 4, i'd pick Hannebery!. JPK's a bargain, but i'd rather Selwood or Sloane at that price. WIth Hannebery, Parker and Mitchell all having career best seasons, think it's taking away from JPK.

Mike

AGREEED.

Dean

I cannot see JPK finishing in the top 10 especially at the rate he is going, however I wouldn't be trading him out.

@wheels_1987

at such a bargain its hard to say no to JPK

Rob

Just listened to the podcast and Jock said you should nearly have a full premo team.

I have4 or 3 rookies still in the side.

With 140K how would i downgrade to make money and then upgrade Rookies to Premos

BACK: Shaw, simpson, newnes, Hibbered, Lever,Saad ( Pearce and hamling)
Mid: Fyfe, selwood, Brandon Ellis, D.Mckenzie, Kennedy, Shiel, Cripps, Priddis( CEY, Dumont, Blakely)
Ruck: Blicavs, Nicnat( read)
FWD: Roughy, Martin, Bont, Gray, Franklin,Dahlhausl( Steel and lambert)

Any suggestions?

Dean

Not easy you'll need to wait a few weeks and hopefully your rookies fatten fast. Look to trade CEY out and bring in Sloane as this will be the cheapest you'll get him.

Look to trade out Mckenzie and get Beasley in to start.

Tyler

Downgrade Saad to H Goddard maybe

Skindog

Bont out for Sloane?? or is Bonts next heap of games going to see him score well???

Ben

Mav Weller will tag him next week.

Crowmagnon

If you have a full premium team, go for it.

Crowmagnon

Sorry, that reply was for skindog.

@wheels_1987

if you have bont hold

Skindog

Reason Wheels?? talk me into it!!!

@wheels_1987

when u got the bont you would have expected him to be a keeper premo… you should stick to this plan and find another way to get Sloan. your team will be better for having both players, rather than one

Skindog

Cheers Wheels, nuff said,,,,

SCaddict

Love the call in Pieman!

No doubt a very cathartic experience for you. 🙂

In fact superb podcast all round gents and was worth a second listen for sure.

Josh

Sloane or Montagna this week? Currently ranked 800th, lock in a POD?

SCaddict

Can't go past Sloane for value. Monty had a purple patch last season but then that dried up with many coaches ultimately ruing the decision to make the POD trade in there.

Of course no reason history must repeat in 2015 but you would be paying top dollar for Monty right now so you need to be pretty sure about him to pull the trigger there if you ask me.

Skindog

Sloane for me Josh, cant go past the price tag, for me its Bont out Sloane in! but then theres JPK as well??

@wheels_1987

Sloan

Luke

whats the news on ablett?

Mike

The news is you’d have to be mad to risk it.

mcleal10

he could be back this week or next. I'd consider saving a premium spot in the midfield for him.

cam

Selwood-Sloane?

@wheels_1987

hold selwood

SCNEWS

Should I bring in Kade Simpson as a premo? or someone like Bachar houli? who should i get? (Already have hodge and Shaw)

Luke

Have a lot more faith in Simpson than Houli

Danners

If you can afford him

Nicholas

I have lewis griffen and selwood. Should i go griffen to pendles? Only problem is he just got a 120. Any thoughts?

SCaddict

That's exactly what Jock is planning to do this week if you heard the podcast so you know you will be in good company if you make that call.

Griffen is too consistent to be a premo keeper after 12 weeks of data, as an 88 average just doesn't cut it for your midfield.

So you will probably need to upgrade him to a proper premo at some point and his Rd13 bye this week will present the perfect opportunity for many.

@wheels_1987

griffen to pendles = lock trade

Locked and Loaded

would rather let selwood go Griff will step up

l. Gibbs

my midfielid is- Lewis, selwood, fyfe, pendles, jpk, beams and danger. Who should I get for my 8th midfield spot? not worried about byes and cash who do I get?

hedski

Sloane or Parker?

mcleal10

I'm personally waiting for Ablett and seeing if he recovers. Other than that you should look at Hanneberry, Sloane and Pridis

@wheels_1987

silly waiting on ablett, with his BE so large you wouldnt bring him in for at least 3 weeks. in that meantime your missingt out on a m8 premo score.
get full premo then look to upgrade a rookie to ablett or your current m8

3. votes

Is bont a keeper as a F6? If not who do I get in? already have Franklin, Swan, Daulhause, Martin and gray!

SCaddict

Would keep the faith for now especially with the Doggies favourable upcoming draw. If he can't average at least 90 over the next month then I think he's probably outstayed his welcome at that point and you could look to move him on for a Floghard or Lids type.

Crowls

hope it works as i am looking at same trade option

@wheels_1987

hold the bont

Youngy

Hold, not worth a trade.

Mourney

Have 13 trades left,want sloane but thinking of holding cripps as will be 500 k soon. I might sideways to him, who out of Jpk, selwood and leiws should I sideways with? or just a no?

mcleal10

no

@wheels_1987

Cripps has a BE of 41
Hold him this week, as soon as he stinks it up then trade him out

Nick

Do we need to be getting to full premium as quick as possible or should we be looking to save trades by waiting for our rookies to fully fatten?

Cheers community

Mr chan

Yes but depends on your goal.
Some are going for rank and have been trading aggressively. For league, you can wait til they flatten but sometimes you just don’t know if they will go up more.
Eg. Dumont and Bailey dale- vested a lot and can’t trust.
Hogan, Cripps- can wait for sure as they are scoring well and could be in your final team as well

@wheels_1987

full premo

Antonio

Smith, Hannebery and Dalhous in for Griffen, McIntosh and Ellis-Yolmen.

hedski

Nice trades. Ditch t griff

Youngy

Good trades. I will be holding Grif though.

Dean

As always I loved the Podcast guys. Hope you all had a great weekend.
im currently ranked 2444 so realistically im most likely out of the contention for overall rank right?

I have 11 trades left and 263k in the war chest. However if I stick to my bye strategy structure this would require me to traded out CEY, Lumumba & Krakouer to bring in Hodge, Sloane & Lambert or Steele in this week, which will leave me with 8 trades left over and my team will be as follows:

DEFENCE:- Hodge, Shaw, Houli, Simpson, Saad, Hamling:- (Pearce, Lever)
MIDFIELD:- Fyfe, Danger, Priddis, Pendles, Beams, Sloane, JPK, Parker:- (Boston, Stretch, Lambert)
RUCK:- Goldy, Blicvas:- (Read)
FORWARDS:- Martin, Gray, Dahlhaus, Swan, Edwards, TBC:- (Dale, Clark)

I still need to upgrade TBC to Goddard and in defence I need to upgrade Saad & a rookie before my team is really full premo.
I would only have $117k left over after these trades if I took that route.

I need a little advice community as what you think is best, as I am not really sure what I should do, should I trade the 3 this week or only play for league and trade cautiously. Lastly are there better trading options you prefer. Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

hedski

Id waste 3 trades on belch

Josh

Looks like BC has to go now, out for 8-10 weeks, should make that decision even easier.

BC to Floggard,
Clark down to Steele.
Saad up to your choice of premium defender.

Looks good man, keep it up.

Dean

Cheers mate but I think its more important bringing in Sloane this week before Goddard because Goddard has a break even of 132 so chances are he will go down in price this week as opposed to Sloane who has a break even of 77 so he should go up in price.

As for SAAD I think he is still worth keeping in defence as even the top defenders are scoring inconsistently.

Your thoughts?

@wheels_1987

i reckon lambert will be named this week so get him in
i am going to get him this week regardsless to free up some cash then get Steele next week

Jack

Got a full premium team with 11 trades left going into round 13. Am I ahead of the pack?

Mr chan

It’s about right on. About 10 left for full premo

Crowls

full premo 9 trades left. time to look at loopholing and saving trades

Jack

Also have 20 on field this week

Youngy

Ye your probably a touch ahead of the pack

Dean

Jack whats your team look like mate?

@wheels_1987

yep
can you post your team up?

Rob

Who do i Get for Selwood and CEY?

I have 1,077,200 to get 2 players.

Any suggestions?

Derek

Unless you put your team up, can’t help

Dean

Rob you have over $1 Million in the bank mate. Forget about Selwood for now mate he wont lose you any cash this week coz he has his bye.

You need to upgrade your rookies to rising premium's. The number one trade would be bringing in Sloane this week as he has a low break even of 77 or Pendlebury as his break even is 101 – So I would go Mckenzie to Sloane or Pendles, Lever to Houli and SAAD to Hodge..
If you do these 3 trades then you will still have $382,000 in the bank with Sloane – Or $306,800 if you chose Pendles.
When you do this then you will have a full premo side by round 14 by trading out Selwood to who ever you wish and also Cripps to whoever you wish.

Or rather then trade out McKenzie you could trade out CEY to Sloane as he has peaked in price. Doing this will leave you $542,500 if you chose Sloane, or if you chose Pendles this would still leave you with $467,300 to change Selwood to someone like Beams maybe and you'll then have a awesome full premo side. Just think about it first coz u might be able to keep CEY as your M9 in case someone gets injured so if you can do all this by keeping CEY as bench cover going forward you have yourself a awesome side mate.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

@wheels_1987

hold selwood mate

Johnny

Hey fellas thoughts on Jack Steven? Been scoring consistently well all year.??

judd0

Awkward price, if he was 50k cheaper, he won't be a top 10 mid so unless you've got a very strong mid already. For a similar price you can get Ward, i know hes got the bye this week. Also for 50k cheaper you can get Heppel which I think he represents some value.
But Steven would be a good M8 no doubt about that.

Danners

A good POD option

@wheels_1987

has a BE of 128
hold this week

Francis

Time to trade out Dumont? Been the sub the last two games, breakeven now 78

SCaddict

Hasn't made enough cash to be really worth moving on yet. He's played quite well when he's come on in the 4th qtr so it probably won't be long before he gets full game opportunities. I'm certainly hanging on to him in my AFL Fantasy side.

So try and carry him a little longer if you can even though I realise it's been quite painful through this bye period. I did the same thing with Lonie when many dumped him after he get KO'd early against the Crows and am now reaping the rewards of holding longer than others did.

@wheels_1987

if you need to trade him this week to get 18 on the park then do it
Lambert might be back for the tigers as a trade down

Ryan

Pendlebury @ 558k…. are we getting on?

General Soreness

If you do not have him, you should.

Danners

Agree with General, that is a bargain if you don't have him

@wheels_1987

everyone should have the pendle

Youngy

At that price and after his bye he needs to be in your team this week if you don't have him.

Owen

Hey community can you help me out;
Need to pick two out of: Brodie Smith, Bachar Houli and Shaun Burgoyne
Thanks,
By the way great podcast Jock, had me in hysterics

SCaddict

Houli I'd give the tick. Definitely has the rebounding running defender all role sewn up at the Tiges and has had an excellent half a season. Still not sure on the other two so can't recommend them just yet.

Burgoyne can have his huge quarters but is really too much of a role player nowadays (as are many of the Hawks) to be super fantasy relevant. I'm feeling this pinch myself as a Lewis holder who as an aside has been rubbish lately.

I realise Smith is dirt cheap and likely underpriced but I wouldn't trade him in until he could show me that he can ton up at least once if not twice, even though it would cost you more to wait and see.

It's just that you'd hate to be stuck with a 70-75 average defender for the rest of the season with rookies like Saad and the Ox performing better. Laird has possibly pinched his role and a chunk of his SC points this season.

judd0

1. Houli
2. Smith (At that price)
3. Burger coin

@wheels_1987

Brodie Smith = so cheap

TyS

Anyone in my boat of going Goldy down to Gawn for cash reasons…? In a few weeks time I will get Goldy back. Doing this allows me to get Tom Mitchell for Clark and I will get Brodie Smith next week with 90k I will upgrade McKenzie.. Full premo….

judd0

Hmmmmm, I wouldn't be doing but if you have thought it through go for it. How many trades do you have?

Ethan

your essentially wasting a few trades here, you will have to be hoping goldy scores poorly if your getting him back in. If you really need gawn, go Clark to Gawn and Get in brodie smith in this week. Has completely bottomed out and has a be of arount 50

scrofl

That's the dumbest thing I've read all season… There's still half a season to go, and if you only need one more upgrade to be full premo, why not just wait? There's no rule that says you must be full premo by round 13.

Josh

Agreed. Probably the worst trade idea I've heard on this thread, but ditch Clark.

BigDropKick

I do not see a problem TyS …. the operative idea here is that you do not have the $ to upgrade two other lines and Gawn could and has gone big . ( small sample but very good )

If it is your only option go for it ! …. Far from the dumbest thing that has been suggested this year ; no body is an expert here .

@wheels_1987

Is this a joke question??
you wouldnt be considering this for real i hope!

Steve

Kavanagh < what are your thoughts of bringing him in this week?
Have Boston and Steele already, any other rookie worth having?

Tyler

H Goddard should get a game soon

scrofl

Goddard is probably a better option. Kav's job security isn't the best, and Goddard is highly touted at the Saints. Plus Goddard has that FWD/DEF swing.

mcleal10

Who's to say Goddard's job security isn't bad? Hasn't proven himself at all since he hasn't even played.

@wheels_1987

this is true ^^^

chris

thoughts on my team and what i should do/ trade?

def: shaw, murphy, rance, hodge, higgins, smith, hamling, lever
mid: fyfe, pendles, priddis, beams, JPK, sloane, wines, CEY, boston, mckenzie, anderson
ruck: blicavs, nicnat, read
fwd: martin, gray, dalhaus, swan, goddard, franklin, steele, lamb

did 2 trades this week to get dahlaus in for lumumba (via higgins), tarrant to steele

realistically next week will be full premo.. hoping gray isnt out for this week so i have 18 on field. who would be the next choice of midfielders for CEY

luke

Gray has the bye this week…

Dunny

Toby McLean or Orazio Fantasia as a forward downgrade for someone already with steele?

SCaddict

Lambert would be the optimal option if he gets a game this week. Had a great game in the VFL on the weekend and with the Corey Ellis injury surely is in line for senior selection this week.

@wheels_1987

agreed ^^^

Caz

Hi all, this week I will be going mcintosh to houli griffin to sloane and tarrent down to toby McLean thoughts? Thnx

@wheels_1987

all good
except tarrant
look for another player then McClean
possible Lambert as an option

Caz

Already have lambert and steele, need to downgrade to get cash.

Mac

Thoughts on my team? 80k in the bank. 13 trades.
Simpson, Shaw, Gibson, Hodge, Newnes, Hamling, Pearce, Lever
Fyfe,JPK, Beams, Selwood, Parker, Treloar, Priddis, Rocky, Steele, McKenzie, Dumont
Goldy, Maric, Read
Gray, Swan, Martin,Franklin, Dahlhaus, Tarrent, Lonie, Goddard

Youngy

First thought's are maybe Tarrent down to a rookie maybe a S Edwards and Lever up to B Smith?

Adam

Thaughts please

Van d to Sloane

Tarrant to fwd 400-500

Grundy out or hold

Thanks in advance

Adam

Anyone ?

derek

what decent forward can you get for under $500k??

Adam

Well thats the question

r2d2

Zorko …. Boomer

mcleal10

I wouldn't get any fwd if it's under 500

Adam

Lookn at zorko roughead riewoldt elliot ?

Ivan

What happened to Jesse Hogan? He was green lit and then wasn't even in the side on the weekend…..

I N Pieman

He was withdrawn on Friday. They didn’t think they’d need him

Ivan

So is it time to move him, on then?

Mr chan

Got the bye, I’ve moved him on as he’s made good cash

BKW

Hamstring tightness apparently

@wheels_1987

time to say goodbye to hogan

I N Pieman

Just finished cleaning up the Griffen mess in the backyard. Reloaded & now hunting for Selwood. Pair of them are complete spuds & needs to be blown away

Sarah

Do it Pieman. It was the greatest relief when I finally traded Griffin out of my team and it was locked in. Can't remember why I selected him in the first place and will never make that mistake again.

Skindog

First year I haven't had Selwood and got rid of Griffen last week!!! and a question for you Pieman,, do you think Roughy is going to turn it around? very cheap atm and could be the POD im looking for for F6?? Good day sir,,,,,

@wheels_1987

hahah funny as

Tony

Maric b/e this week is 171. Probably have 20 playing week without Maric. Thinking of trading out Maric this week to either Nic Nat or Blicavs (both not playing) before a potential big $ drop of Maric. What do you guys think???

Sarah

Why does it matter if Maric drops money? He's in your team for points. So he had 1 bad game… it's not worth trading him. Would you trade Fyfe as well if he score 50 this week and drops $50k??? No. So why would you trade Maric? He's averaging over 100 for the year. He's doing his job.

@wheels_1987

i agree with sarah
if you have a "keeper" in your team it doesnt matter what they are priced at.

Ethan

would be the biggest waste of a trade in your team this year. One poor game does not reflect the season he has had

Jel

I've had Goldy & Maric since the start of the year.
I wouldn't trade either unless they had a long term injury.
One bad week is just a blip.

BKW

As per other comments don’t do this – I’ve owned goldy and Maric all year and happy with the combo, just need to be aware they will both struggle against Sandi or Nic Nat – Maric plays Sandi round 17 but has a very nice run of games in the finals (suns, pies, bombers) – Hold

mcleal10

useless trade

Jackie

What do we do with Ibbotson? Keep him for the rest of the year or wait till he peaks and get rid?

Flaccid Jaff

I would wait. In my opinion he has the potential to be a top 6 defender. just depends on what role he gets. I think when silvagni & dawson return, ibbo could be put back into his 2013 role of rebounding & cheap possession gathering & could average 100 for the rest of the season, especially with duffield in the doghouse! But ross might change his mind yet again. Definitely wait on him though!

@wheels_1987

just hold him
DEF is so fickle this season

Youngy

Here is my team community http://gyazo.com/879087ac812c01c9b68b6263ade0953a What should my trades be this week?

Thinking of Hogan to S, Edwards (Essendon)
Clark to Dahlhouse ( Swinging Higgins and H. Goddard )
And then maybe no third trade.

Thoughts Community (Got 6k in the bank and have 14 trades left)

mcleal10

Assuming that you have no war chest, I'd definitely do those trades. If you don't have Steele I'd consider getting him this week or next instead of Edwards
Swinging Higgins down back is definitely the right move since your defence is lacking a player.
You could also consider trading down Hogan to a rookie and then trading Clark into Luke Hodge by swinging Hugh Goddard into the fwd line. I'd do that trade if you don't feel confident with Dahlhaus.

Youngy

Didn't even think of that… Thx Hodge is in!, Don't feel confident with Dahlaus.

Only problem is that Steele has the bye…

randomcliche

Not sure how much cash you've left after the hodge trade, but cripps to a premo def, (via mckenzie), through you could pick up gibbo…yeah, cripps is playing well, but he'll tire at some point…and you want to be at full premo asap.

@wheels_1987

you need to swing higgins down back asap, bring in a rookie FWD and upgrade Hogan to a full premo FWD

Rick Grimes

I’m gonna dump Selwood. He’s no SC relevant anymore.

carlashirley90

For this year agree
If Dangerfield goes to Geelong next year OMG!!! Get both in your team

Iam a Crows supporter but cannot see Danger staying 🙁

Sarah

Hey Carla, I didn't know you were a crows supporter!! I was in Adelaide and went to the game on Thursday, it was great for 3/4s!
I really hope Danger doesn't leave, but if he does I want the crows to match his offer so the cats are forced to trade for him.

Danners

I think it is wise, he can't get it done with the 3rd one up

@wheels_1987

im gunna hold selwood
had him all year, might come back all guns blazing after the bye

Sarah

Ok, 3 more trades this week and my team is complete!! Bringing in Houli and Murphy as a POD! Think the blues have turned a corner. May as well take a risk as my team is currently ranked 12k-ish… not what I was hoping for this year!

Ah well. Here is my final team:

Def: Shaw, Simpson, Houli, Hibberd, Newnes, Smith (J Kolojashnij, Hamling)
Mids: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Priddis, JPK, Sloane, Wines, Murphy, Rockliff (Dumont, Boston, Kavanagh)
Rucks: Goldy, Maric (O'Brien)
Fwds: Gray, Goddard, Martin, Franklin, Swan, Dahlhaus (Steele, Lamb)

Looks better on paper than it's been performing. Hopefully it can pick up a bit after the byes.

What are peoples thought's on Higgins, hold a D6 spot? Or will Dal Santo being back hurt his output?

Kev

I've held onto him much longer than I intended, gonna keep riding him till he drops off/injured

Nickf

Always planned to trade him out with north's bye but… I'm just not sure who I would even want to replace him at the moment! Got Shaw, Hodge, Simpson, Houli, McDonald… Smith offers value I guess? But I think Higo has deserved a spot

Crabb

I like Higgins. Playing the Wingard role from 2 seasons back.

Flaccid Jaff

My plan is to keep higgins for fwd & def bench coverage with hugh goddard at the other end! Swingsets are VITAL come finals time! He’s a goal kicker & will have a big game every few weeks, but is unreliable, so wouldn’t have him d6 if you can help it.

@wheels_1987

im holding until he gets injured

Jacko1998

brought nic nat in at the right time. 4 straight scores of 120+ very very happy with my selection up from tbc to nic nat 🙂

@wheels_1987

ive had him all year, so annoying but now that patience is paying off

Adrian

thoughts on these trades community?

Newnes –> Houli
CEY –> Parker
One rookie downgrade: Mckenzie –> Beasy or Anderson –> Kavanagh

Cheers guys!!

Kev

Love the first 2 trades, Adrian. If you can do them without the 3rd then go for it. Agree with Sam that Steele is the better option, but will he hold his place?

Mr chan

Don’t get rid of newnes just yet. He’s going well

@wheels_1987

hold newnes mate as per the advice in the podcast

Pendlebury or Mundy for last spot in my midfield? Trading sideways from Griffen

My Current midfield is: Fyfe, Hannebery, Dangefield, Beams, Ebert, Treloar, Sloane and Griffen

Had a look at Fremantles games for the rest of the year and Mundy could finish strong no?

My final team is
Houli, Shaw, Rance, Higgins, Pittard, Smith
Fyfe, Hannebery, Dangerfield, Beams, Ebert, Treloar, Sloane, ?
Goldstein, NicNat
Gray, Swan, Dalhouse, Franklin, D.Smith, Zorko

At the right time I will trade Pittard or B.Smith to a proven premium

Kev

Awesome looking team, Carla. I looked long at hard at Mundy earlier in the year when my midfield was falling apart and talked myself out of it because of the "will he be top 10 in his position" mantra, and I reckon that's just about gone out the window this year! Get him in

Danners

You're comparing someone that has averaged 120+ the last four years to someone that has only had a good start. Pretty simple, get Pendlebury in!

mcleal10

Pendlebury. I don't think Devon Smith is a trusty forward. Would be looking to chop him asap.

@wheels_1987

Go Pendles
Just such an elite talent, in my opinion a slightly better pick then Mundy

in afl fantasy Mundy is a DEF/MID
i would LOVE Mundy in my SC DEF line

Ethan

Got some ideas but no execution of trades
should i go with Tarrant/Dumont—>Steele
Mcintosh-Laird/Smith
Dumont/Selwood-Sloane?

Team is
Def: Houli,Shaw,Murphy,Newnes, Saad, Mcintosh (Hamling, Pearce)
Mid: Fyfe, Pendelbry, Priddis, Parker, Wines, Steven, Selwood, Cripps, (Dumont, Mckenzie, Lambert)
Ruc: Goldstein, Nic Nat (Cox)
Fwd: Gray, Martin,Goddard, Swan, Bont, Gawn, (Tarrant, Mclean)
Before trades have 188k in the bank

Kev

North and GWS have their bye this week, so first option is a no. If you need it to generate cash, get rid of taz
Laird over Smith. In great form.
Sloane over Jelwood.

PAPA

Best Premo Defender? Cant afford Hodge and already have shaw, gibson and brodie smith

Liam

houli or simpson

mcleal10

Simpson and Zac Dawson

@wheels_1987

defs Zac Dawson
SC lock

@wheels_1987

higgins

zeesus

Team complete for those interested:
DEF: Shaw, Gibson, Murphy, Docherty, Kolodjashnij, B Smith (Hamling, Pearce)
MID: Fyfe, Pendles, Beams, Parker, Neale, Boak, Sloane, Lewis (Boston, McKenzie, Steele)
RUC: Goldy, Maric
FWD: Gray, Franklin, Martin, Roughead, Swan, Bennell (Lambert, Dale)

Josh

Looking good mate, some interesting picks in defence though with Murphy/Docherty/Kolo/B.Smith all mid-range premiums?

I'd be looking at upgrading Hamling to a proven premum and downgrading Pearce to a loophole rookie in a couple of weeks and you can loophole Kolo and Smith and leads to bench cover.

zeesus

Yeah thinking the same. Back line is obviously not the strongest but no one has sold me on being proven premo except Shaw. Houli has backed off a bit but will keep an eye on him. I was really hoping Docherty would step up.

Phat Man

Have 5 trades left after using the 3 for this final bye round, at the start had around $340k and finished with $150k

downgraded Kmac to H.Beasley
Traded M.Clark to B.Goddard
Traded H.lumumba to Buddy (by swinging H.Goddard from fwd to def)

Where these the best fowards to bring in, and should i have enough trades to upgrade to more defenders to make a full premo team

Josh

If you've got 5 trades left, you'll be in struggle street in no time man,.. I'd give up on the hope of getting a full premium team and conserve them for injuries for now.

@wheels_1987

5 trades left?
nearly time to give up!

that said the trades you have made are ok
