Dex Files – Nick Riewoldt

Published by Jock on

Concrete Booking Agency

TG Footy Tracgic - Dexter

Well, that was a train wreck! Round 12, 2015 – that will go down in history as my worst ever round of SuperCoach.

What a nightmare! Gray (C), TMAC, Lumumba, Thurlow, Simpson, Hamling, Selwood, Lewis, Stretch & Maric all produced sub 80 scores. Throw in the fact I only had 17 onfield… yep – 1514 points and a rank blowout to be now 5000+. Yuck.

Rage trades have ensued. Lumumba is Gone (NEVER AGAIN). Selwood was Gone (bought back in though). Maric I will forgive, (For now). Lewis… (WHAT. THE. *elevator music*…) I’m 50-50 on trading Tmac out, 37 was putrid!

Phew.

/rant over.

Round 13, last bye round, thank *insert curse word here*! Most teams should – haha, well maybe – be approaching full premium status. This week trades should revolve around booting R13 rookies or underperforming “premium” players for the likes of R12 or R11 players.

Plenty of trades so far have revolved around the likes of Sloane, Hodge, Pendles, Smith etc…

Surprisingly, Nick Riewoldt has only 2.27% ownership – as most coaches have the likes of Swan, Gray, Buddy, Martin and/or Bont up forward and have pretty much a full premium forward setup.

For those of you – like our very own Lekdog – that have the testicular fortitude to pick him, Riewoldt has been rewarding in recent times (3 round average of 114.7SC).

Riewoldt is currently averaging 91 SC this season (worth $489,100). He was knocked out very early in the round 7 game vs Adelaide – surprisingly he was on track for 122SC from 100% ToG mind you! If we remove this from the equation; he would be averaging a very healthy 102.5 (worth $550,900).

Looking at Riewoldt’s numbers; his last 3 games’ output has been pretty similar to the previous 3 games (excluding the round 7 KO early in the game). Averaging 14.3 kicks, compared to 13, 18 disposals – 18.3, 72.9% efficiency – 69.7%, 10.6 marks – 10.3 (you get the picture).

Comparing these blocks of 3 games, his notable stat jumps are goal output (9 total, compared to 4), and marks inside 50 (3.3 average per game, compared to 2). These, coupled with the Saints winning against Melbourne and Brisbane give “Roo” his elevated SC scores in this time.

If we look at his average output in wins compared to losses this year (all stats are excluding the game he was KO’ed early in), we see a massive difference in Goal output, clangers, contested possessions and contested marks. The latter three I’d put down to harder opponents & more pressure per possession. Not to forget: 109SC in wins, and 89.5 in losses. See table below:

roo

His stats from 2014 aren’t as easy to read. It’s public knowledge; the Saints were terrible last year. They were on the receiving end of 18 losses, by a total of 1054 points (an average loss of 58.6 points). 8 of those losses were greater than 10 goals.

rpp2

The better news is – the Saints aren’t near as bad this year. Riewoldt managed to average almost 92SC in a laughable St. Kilda outfit in 2014, so in a better Saints team; he has a better chance to average around 100SC (which is what I expect from him).

In saying that, Saints have a moderately hard run home. Their finals are very difficult, with Fremantle, North, Geelong and Sydney respectively (West Coast in the final game). Until finals though; they face the Dogs this week, an underwhelming Essendon, injury hit Giants, Richmond, Melbourne and Port – which are all realistically winnable (depends which Richmond show up!).

In the last few years; Riewoldt has played a more roaming KPF role – similar to buddy – where he runs up the ground and charges into the forward 50 for opportunities at goal. This has allowed him to get the pill more, even when saints are getting hammered.

At $459k (priced to average 85); I have Riewoldt slightly under Buddy as a forward option. Not quite as explosive, but still a very good PoD option. Just ask Lekdog!

What do you think community? Is Riewoldt worth a punt or are you full? We’d love to hear from you!

Boom!

Patch

Love it, Dex. Not for mine, but very tempting for anyone wanting to nab a massive POD.

tom

who is the best rookie to bring in?

neal-bullen, kavanagh, beasly?

Tophawk

Kavanagh

Youngy

Kav

Danners

Neal-Bullen if you have 18 this week, heard Melbourne rate him very highly

r2d2

Love these articles Dex ,, you make a solid case there ! My current fwd line — gray dusty goddard swan ziebell lonie (Krak Steele ) am looking too the 1 final upgrade in next week or so ,, but thinking buddy over Riewoldt ,, or a cheaper option in s Edwards or Zorko ? Thoughts

Jezg

Thought about Tom Mitchell?

r2d2

He is another option for me yes ! Cheers , getting on the pricey side now though and I may have missed boat , he at his most exp now I think

Jezg

He is a ball magnet though Also Sydney’s last 4 rounds consist of magpies gws stk and gcoast. Any tag will go to one of Parker or hannebery you’d think.

Timmmy

Not the worst option that's for sure. For me I'm hoping Goddard drops to around 500k and I'll nab him as my last forward.

tom

goddard or deledio? or wait for bartel?

Youngy

Lids

Jezg

WTF??

KPF,s.

NFG!!

Just saying….

r2d2

Buddy does not fit in that mould I don’t think , plays a lot higher ,, Riewoldt nearly fits that mould too , not the worst option , not 1 I will Prob go , but I’m sure Dex has an idea champ

r2d2

As in buddy And roo are not typical stay at home KPFs……. Just saying

Jezg

Yeah understand his point but still leaning towards smaller fwds/mids. Safer bet in my opinion. Have one player in mind though that goes against the grain. Max gawn. Is he a fox in Sheeps clothing or the real deal? Gives that Ruck cover that we may need down the track.

r2d2

Have had this thought myself …. Can we trust him to avg Least 90 from here ?? I not so sure hey ,, would provide handy insurance as r3, I had belch at start for same reason and he hurt me ! Am hesitant on gawn too , but gee he was good against cats and solid week before !

Jezg

If he scores around the 100 mark in round 14 against nic nat I’m all over him like a hot rash. Until then I’m thinking hold.

r2d2

Is going too go up another 80k I think ?

Jezg

Shit. Didn’t factor that in to the equation. 7 of the last 10 teams he plays have no quality rucks with gws last round. To buy or not to buy. That’s gonna be next weeks million dollar question.

r2d2

If he comes in will have too be next week one would think

Swans2012

I think I’m on, the guy is a giant (208cm only shorter than sandi and wits) and as long as he holds the no1 spot (hasn’t had this in the past) I can see him hitting a good 100 every second or third game. Perfect ruck cover/f7 loopholer. Worst case he goes up another 80 odd and I flip him (with a trade I can’t afford to use)

tom

i currently have docherty in my side as I started with him (win).

he isnt doing too bad but is failing to hit the ton, should i trade when I get the chance to a proper premium or do I hold?

Baggyizzle

Depends on your side mate,

Baggyizzle

He can be a good last backman spot while you concentrate on finishing your side with premos in other spots

BKW

No way, hold

Sarah

Im passing on Roo.
Should I get Titch or Buddy as my last forward?
Already have Gray, Dusty, BJ, Swan and Dalhaus

Jezg

Titch for sure. Reckon he’s in for a huge second half of the year.

Liam

S.Edwards or T.McDonald next week??
If you chose Tmac that means i will have to keep Higgins in my forward line.
Does that matter?
Would love to hear your thoughts cheers

Jackson

It would be better to have Higgins as a def, but Tmac could score bettter than Edwards.

Sarah

Get Edwards (Rich) , Zorko or Roo

Kinnas

watson vs sloane????

Brooke Richards

Sloane for sure

Jezg

Not even a contest. Sloane by the length of the flemington straight. Watson + drug saga = shithouse

mcleal10

I'm gonna say Watson on this.

Brooke Richards

Trading out Tarrant,
Who should I bring in out of Buddy, Titch and Lids
My forward line already has Gray, Dalhaus, Swan, Dusty and Goddard

Creeker

Yet another rippin write up Dex.
Will be making my final forward upgrade next week and N Roo is on the radar.
Bad luck about the rnd 12 score – very stiff. All the planning we put into the bye rounds and sometimes it just goes pear shaped. Agree with you about Lumumba (gone). Had great pleasure trading him out this week.
Dexter's Lab league still tracking along ok. Was lucky to match up with last week, your one down week.
Looking forward to my rnd 14 match up with old mate Maso !

Ethan

would like to get him but his last 7 rounds look ugly

Liam

Zorko and parker or JPK and shane edwards?

Youngy

Zorko and JPK? Parker to much!

General Soreness

Great write up Dex, massive plums Lek backing your constitutions to bring him in.

derek

I remember two years ago, a number of my opponents had Roo and he posted some massive scores during the Supercoach Finals.

Donavan

Could it be that he lifts for supercoach finals…..lol

r2d2

I have held onto lonie and krak … Been rewarded for it ,, but since Steele is one who seems like will play a fair few games , I am going too need too offload one of them in next couple weeks …. Both will play reg games for there clubs from here I would think so need some help too make the choice community ,,, who goes out … Lonie or krak ???????

r2d2

Need too offload one too complete my fwd line

Donavan

I think its time to go…Lonie

SCaddict

Before last weekend I'd would've said keep Lonie for rock solid JS but after Krak's last performance he looks to have cemented a spot in the Port team now.

So I'd probably keep Krak as I think he has the potential to average just a little more than Lonie from here, assuming he keeps his spot and of course dodges the snot vest which I believe he will.

Anyway you still have a few more weeks to ponder that one until the Man of Steele is on the bubble.

r2d2

I got Steele last week … Which I don’t normally do , but he was the exception , needed to get 17 on field

@KingWinter7

Buddy or Mitchell as my last forward option?
Current fwds are Gray, Dusty, Swan, Goddard, Bont

Dean

Mitchell by a mile as he will be allot more consistent.

Bogan Pride

Who should I bring in for Lumumba, I already have shaw, simpson, newnes and houli as premos

r2d2

Bob murphy maybe ?? Taylor or Yeo other options

Jezg

Highly recommend Picken. Just keeps getting it done.

SCaddict

Picken is a very likely in for me this week. Averaging 115 over his last 7 with the lowest score of 89 during that period.

Has graduated from tagger to ball winner under Beveridge and the Doggies have a sensational draw from here as we know.

r2d2

Good option picken .. Or laird

@KingWinter7

Hodge

derek

Anyone want to have a guess at the chances of Brooksby getting a game this week?

brook

i am thinking of trading him in for TBC … will give me maximum cash and at least the possibility of ruck cover. i dont have the cash to grab anyone better at this stage with my trading plan getting me to full premo by R16 with 5 trades left. I predict GAJ will be around $585k by then and a very tempting final upgrade (hopefully for boston if he plays the next 3 weeks).

Rob

I have 510k to spend on a forward.

Who is the best out of these options?

Bont
Zorko
Shane Edwards
Nick Riewoldt
Gawn

Thanks in advance

SCaddict

If you can afford to wait a week or two Goddard could fall within your price range. Has a BE of 132 against the Hawks this week.

Also Boomer is somewhat of a forgotten man in 2015 as he was the second highest scoring forward in the game last season. Has been slow to get his act together (as have the Kangas) but he seems to be rolling now posting 137 last weekend.

North also have one of the best remaining draws for a team pushing for finals.

derek

Nice SC. I have Boomer pencilled in to join my team in a couple of weeks time. Kangaroo's draw is insane.

SCaddict

I notice JR Brumby FC already has brought in Boomer so he obviously believes he will finish the season with a wet sail too.

I'll probably have an anxious choice between Boomer and Goddard for my last forward spot next week.

The Ranger

Thanks Dex.
He's def on my radar with his new role but his finals run is a major concern.

T.J.M

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

Suggest some trades please!

Liam

You could trade Lonie to a rookie which should leave about 230k in the bank.
Then go Tarrant to a forward premo- Edwards is probs your best option.
Or instead you could go Zorko instead and then trade Lever to B.Smith.
Hope i helped. And best of luck for the rest of the year

I N Pieman

Outstanding as always Dex. Roo is an interesting one. Certainly a POD that can go large. If he was 100k less & DPP id be a lot keener

Skindog

ROUGHY!!!!!!!!!

Tyler

Community if I have to trade a rookie soon, which one should I trade out first out of dale, lambert, hamling, dmac, boston, a pearce and lever

SCaddict

All are too early to harvest for mine. Lambert is even a chance of coming back this week.

Perhaps D-Mac could go if he can't force his way back into the seniors this week or next.

Tofor

Hey guys, I am considering these trades this week.:

Ellis Yolmen -> Sloane
McIntosh -> Brodie Smith
Lumumumbra -> Kavangh

Leaving me 95k.

Next week, I'll be trading out Tarrant and either M Clark or Krakoer.
Probably one down one up. Need a 5th premium forward, possibly Deledio or Dalhaus.
Wouldn't mind another look at Steele before jumping on there.
Also considered Fantasia.
Thoughts? Especially regarding upcoming rookies and their job security

Tofor

Still got Griffen floating around too.. will just leave him on the pine this week, need another week to ponder this…
Pretty much no room for him left in my mids…

Donavan

I like the CEY > Sloan & McIntosh > Smith trades.

I am not sure about Kavangh, and his JS. Maybe a waist of a trade.

I like the looks of Steele, but no point bringing him in this week.

derek

Im trading out Motlop & Griffin, neither play this week and bringing in Parker & Sloane.

This will give me 22 onfield players, but includes Lambert, Lever, McKenzie & Goddard who may not get a game.

Having 18 on field this week, hopefully I can get a decent score and move up the rankings (currently 260th).

Current team:

DEF: Shaw, KK, Simpson, Enright, Newnes, McIntosh (Hamling, Lever)
MIDS: Fyfe, Pendlebury, JPK, Selwood, Priddis, Parker, SMitchell, Sloane (CEY, McKenzie, Steele)
RUC: Goldy, Jacobs (Lucey)
FWDS: Martin, Gray, Dahlhaus, Swan, Goddard, Cloke (Lambert, HGoddard)

12 Trades left & $120k in bank.

Next week I'll fix up my D6 – Thinking about McGovern (DEF/FWD swing set) or Yarran as a smokey.

The following week i'll see how big Travis is going. I have my eye on Boomer Harvey when Kangaroos start there easy run of games (Bris, Carlton, Melb, Saints)

T.J.M

Derek didn't you just bring in Motlop?

Youngster

Exactly what I was thinking!!

Derek

Yes, 2 weeks ago. I thought I could keep him as M9/f7 especially to loophole with Cloke. It seems a luxury. i might yet keep him and trade out CEY instead, will depend on teams this week and if Lever, HGoddard, lam pert or McKenzie getting named.

Derek

Makes sense to trade out CEY and keep Motlop

Swans2012

That’s what I’d go with Derek, if you trade him out now it costs a trade and you don’t have the cover that you’ve already spent a trade to get! As long as it still means you field enough players this week, Ive got similar problems….

derek

it does look a lot better keeping Motlop instead of CEY. Just hoping to have 18 players on field this week.

billy

have 560k to get a mid who to get??
my mids are- Fyfe, Priddis, Pendles, Heppell, Parker, Montagna, B.Ellis

Marcus

Sloane

@Rem_Wah

Sloane is the obvious one IMO

jonah

is Marc Murphy a Good POD averaging 99 and 3 round average of 116, carlton have a soft draw coming up thoughts community

Derek

I wouldn’t say Carlton’s draw is easy

Donavan

I bought him in last week, I think he and the blues will finish the season off pretty well. Clearly he wasnt playing for Mick.

Tyler

Either way he's a good player, obviously not a very popular pick but produces the goods

Danners

A good POD, new coach, could play better

Stevo

Basically got the same question as Billy ^

Regardless of their byes, who is the best premo mid (pick 2) Ive narrowed it down to:

Parker

Hannebery

Pendlebury

Priddis

Ward

Sloane

Armitage

Brooke Richards

Priddis and Pendels, but Sloane for value

T.J.M

Priddis and Parker

Tophawk

Parker and Sloane. Priddis close behind with Blicavs one to seriously look at.

Cheers

Donavan

I'd go Pendles & Hanneberry or Priddis

Brooke Richards

Thoughts on Matthew Pavlich as a nice POD?

hedski

Restin rossy come sc finals?

Brooke Richards

true…

Tophawk

No. He is cheap but he is old. There are much better POD forwards IMO. For a similar price, you can grab a young Jake Stringer from the bulldogs. Most SC players have Dahlhouse.

Cheers

Tyler

Nope my mate picked him up instead of Saint Nick and boy that was a bad decision.

Liam

Thinking of bringing in Colquhoun.
What's his job security like?

Stevo

Very good

Harry

Lots of injuries and Ken loves him so very good JS

T.J.M

Who are some players that will provide good bench cover?

Stevo

Fantasia, Kavanagh, Edwards

T.J.M

I was sort of thinking along the lines of Zorko/Wallis but thanks for your input!

Stevo

Oohh non rookies. Yep Wallis, Cripps as well as a keeper at M9/10

Donavan

Saad & Newnes if you still have them. Brodie Smith at his price may let you carry a 7 man defense.

I went Motlop to cover the fwd & mid lines, and picture him as a F7, D9 type once I fill the last forward upgrade.

Adam

Who do we like ?

Rioli

Roughy

Roo

Zorko

Stevo

Roo- have you read the actual article above? Good stuff

Adam

Yeah sure did im nearly there, just putting the feelers out to get me over the line

Donavan

I still think Rioli is worth a punt on. He is in exceptional form this season, and I have a feeling the Hawks could have a dominant 2nd half of the season.

Adam

Yeah im sorts leaning towards rioli for the hawk factor, tough choice for my last fwd

Caz

Picken or houli community just not sure thnx

Adam

I got houli last week

Donavan

Houli

Phil

Picken

Millsy

Same question I am asking myself this week

Marcus

Gawn, motlop or devon smith. Only got 430k.

Donavan

If you have enough trades to do a further upgrade in the forward line in 3-4 weeks, I would select Gawn as his value will rise significantly and his point may be good.

If this is the last upgrade I would select Motlop, also DPP.

Marcus

My current fwd line is titch, goddard, bont, dusty, tarrant and swan. I would go zorko becuase he doesnt have a bye but hes too inconsistent. Might go motlop.

Danners

Agree with Donavan, I don't see Gawn as a keeper but he could get a big of cash to trade to a top forward

Marcus

Good point, i will go gawn. If he does bad i will trade him out later. It may be a waste of a trade but id rather deledio to motlop later in the season.

Derek

Out of that lot I would go Motlop. He has a bye this week.

He has been getting plenty of midfield time, and when he is not being lazy, he is quite a good footballer. Selwood gets all the attention now, with Kelly and Vartel out, cats relying on Motlop to get some kicks

Donavan

What to do with Bailey Dale?

Stevo

Keep, still cheap. Only vests keep his score down

Connor

When is LekDog’s “Mo’ SuperCoach News” coming this week?

Also, does anyone know the names of Jock, Higgo and Crouching One teams?

Kev

Lek is still MIA after the blues knocked off Port last week. Should we be organising a search party for him?

dannyyboyy

need a mid and a fwd. who out of hannebery and parker, and buddy and dalhaus?

Donavan

Id go for Hanneberry & Buddy. Just think the doggies will fade in the 2nd half.

Derek

I’ve actually just brought in Dahlhaus and Parker. Not sure if that helps.

Jackybluch

How long is Grundy out for . Should i Trade?

Youngy

Yes trade

SCaddict

Another 1-2 weeks as per the AFL injury list.

I'd probably move him on as you really want both your rucks spot averaging at least 100 and although he started the season strong he dropped away well before he got injured.

Jacobs looks a great buy at $520K or you could roll the dice on the Gawnster but frankly there are at least half a dozen rucks one would take over Grundy so take your pick.

Brook

Need a ruck/def premo combo over the next two weeks. The options are:
* Martin/Enright – 213avg, 78% of scores are 90+ (v. 63%) – solid
* Jacobs/Hodge – 211avg, 53% of scores are 100+ (v. 43%) – goes big
Leaning toward first option for consistency, but would welcome others thoughts. Cheers

Danners

Jacobs and Hodge

ThebigD

Excellent article
PODs are becoming even more relevant this season with premiums even tighter than ever
Love that you continue to look outside the square. Most teams would now have 6 of the 8 recognized premium forwards and mids are probably 8 of the recognized 10.
Backs are a mystery and bench cover seems where the rotating PODs will come from.
As stated, one article I look forward to every week

Emma

What are people's thoughts on Taylor Walker, should I upgrade to someone like Goddard/Deledio or keep him?

SCaddict

I don't see Tex as a keeper. In fact very few KPPs end up being Supercoach relevant.

He will bust out the odd monster score but there will just be too many weeks where he disappoints with Supercoach mediocrity.

Perhaps keep him another week with the Crows playing the Lions this week and then look to pick up Goddard next week who will likely drop in price with a 132 BE against the Hawks this weekend or maybe even Boomer who looks great value right now.

Boomer is another you could consider who looks tremendous value right now.

Youngy

To add to Boomer's appeal he has his 400th game in 4 games. Could go BIG!

ThebigD

Have a look at you league competition if that’s what your playing for.

Adelaides finals run may be enough to convince you to hold your POD….

Youngy

Upgrade to Goddard?

Depends how many trades you have.

Dean

By the end of round 14 my team should be as follows but only leaving me 5 trades left:

Defence:- Hodge, Shaw Houli, Simpson, Saad, Smith (Pearce, Hamling)
Midfield:- Fyfe, Dangerfield, Priddis, Pendles, Beams, JPK, Parker, Sloane (Boston, Steele, Stretch)
Ruck:- Goldy, Blicavs (Read)
Forward:- Martin, Gray, Dahlhaus, Swan, Goddard, Edwards (Lambert, Dale)

I'm happy with the team but not happy about having only 5 trades left over for 9 rounds of footy.

Dee

Nice…

Derek

Team looks good. Any cash?

Tophawk

Your lack of trades left could cause a serious "Achilles injury" later in the season. Good side mind you. A very good side. IMO

Ride your luck from here. If your side holds up from here without injury, and suspensions, you are in the game.

With only 5 trades left, I would now sit tight for 3-4 rounds. (despite weekly trade temptation)

Cheers

Donavan

Love the midfield, just about a perfect mix of scoring and cash generation (on the bench).

Bailey

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah

derek

lol

Derek

I was thinking the same thing. Decided to keep Motlop as my M9/F7 security, smith at D7 is very tempting.

I’ve also had a look at the draw. Saints have 7 Sunday games to go, mcKenzie and HGoddard who are both in my team, could make very nice non playing loopholes

Derek

Fyfe could set a world record this week for the most number of people having him as VC

Youngy

Most likely

John

Nice POD in Riewoldt, but im looking at boomer, goddard or Titch as my last Forward, but just not sure which one yet, thoughts?

And just another question, are lever and hamling good options for bench cover for the remainder of the year?
Was going to hold Brown all year but can go full premo this week if i trade him out instead of lever,
maybe later on i will be able to upgrade one of them to a decent D6/7 depending on trades and injuries.

Thanks

Derek

Lever is a really good player. Big wraps at Adelaide

John

Thanks mate, actually helps out alot!
but who makes way for him in the adelaide backline?

Derek

I doubt he will play this week though

John

If it helps this is my team is before trades this week, some poor preforming mids, who i think i should back in at this stage and see how injuries play out, see if i can upgrade later.

10 Trades and 470k in the bank
DEF: Shaw, Houli, Newnes, Simpson, Hibberd, Hamling (Brown, Lever)
MID: Fyfe, Priddis, Pendlebury, Selwood, Kennedy, Lewis, Wallis, Mckenzie (Neal-Bullen, Glenn, Lambert)
RUCK: Goldstien, Martin (Read)
FWD: Gray, Martin, Dahlhaus, Swan, Franklin, Tarrant (Lonie, Clark)

any help is appreciated

Kev

Brown is doing his job, not a bad D7 and you know his js is solid. Being at full premo after the byes is a good place to be

hedski

Gibson Rance Smith (Hamling)
Taylor Docherty Saad (m) (Lever)

Danger Pendles Mundy Parker (Boston)
Shiel Sloane Neale Jelwood (Maynard (d))
(R.Sprobe)

Goldy Stef (Cox (f))

Gray(m) Dusty(m) Swanny(m) (Lambert (m))
Goddard (m) Mitchell (m) Bont (m) (Steele(m))

THE PLAN.
Hold tight for a couple of weeks then cuz of corey (rck/fwd) in for Boston/Lever/Hamling via Lambert/Steele/Maynard opening mid/fwd gate again and R3/F7 cover.
Endgame 3 or 4 weeks Saad/Hamling/Lever/Boston to
Shaw/Picken/Hodge/Yeo?

Couple hail mary trades after that. (If lucky)
Yeah no Fyfe sorry.

Whadda ya reckon community?

hedski

Derek?

hedski

Sry derek few sherbs last nite not sure why I was askin for ya!

no probs. I'm loving the R Sprobe pick in the guts….who is he again?

hedski

J glenn. Reportedly abducted by aliens

Tyler

When you realise that your whole fwd line is dpp

Anyway the plan looks good, just don't limit yourself to those options only, as you can't predict if something will happen to them. For example, hodge might get rested, shaw might get suspended, yeo might run out of form, etc

hedski

Cheers tyler. Plan to open mid/fwd swing. Pretty rough ideas not real sure on mckern and will prob get 3 injuries this week!

tom

what downgrade should i do?

lever to beasly

mckenzie to kavanagh

mckenzie to neal-bullen??

Kev

Still money to make from both (Lever -6 b.e, DMac 13 b.e) so wait for teams tonight. If you need the numbers on the field this week, ANB has his bye. I like Kav but you won't make heaps of cash from the trade

derek

Lever probably won't get named tonight, they will play him in the seconds, but he will be back the next week. He is a very good player, highly rated, should have been a much higher draft pick than he was but had an injury year prior to the draft, should have been a first round pick. Plenty of cash to be made but importantly can score ok as bench cover for the rest of the year.

McKenzie might not be good enough to play much more this year

John

Picken / houli or Simpson to finish my defence?

Liam

simpson

Swans2012

Gawn for mine, most upside and cover for our notoriously fickle rucks

Kev

I'm really torn over him, Swans2012. I said the same thing about Blicavs in round 3, refused to get him in, hadn't done it before etc. Look what happened with that! Supercoach wisdom has flown out the window this year.

I'm upgrading Tarrant this week and if Gawn didn't have his bye I'd probably cave and grab him.

Swans2012

Yep, I don’t think I can resist him, he’s a proven goal kicker in the Vfl (and mark taker) and a giant of a man, body is right finally, right age to step up as a first ruck. I dunno, could be wrong but I think I’m bringing him in next week

Rick Grimes

I'm doing the same. At worst he'll be my F6, but hopefully I'll hold him as F7 and loophole the bejesus out of him.

Luke

Luke parker yes or no?

Youngy

To expensive

Luke

Is he worth it?

Youngy

I reckon there are better options out there such as JPK, Hodge, Heppel or Cotch. which are around the some price range.

I feel that Parker get's talked up a lot better than he is, but I could be wrong

derek

I have been suffering from Luke Parker Envy for the past month. I went Selwood instead of parker and have watched parker average 117 (including a 60 in Round 9) since I didn't get him.

He will be in my team this week.

carlashirley90

Surprised no one is mentioning Pav he is super cheap right now $354,300 projected to score 60 with BE of 96. Will look at him Friday night against Collingwood.
Is set to drip a little more cash and looks very tasty for me to bring in my team so I can use Zorko to cover F7 and M9

He can avg 90-95 for the rest of the season I call that a huge win

@AusSports84

Stay clear of the Pav! I traded him out last week for Lids and it was a god send. I couldn't even justify keeping him at F7 he is going that poorly. Look elsewhere coaches.

derek

you mentioned him 😉

no-one at all is talking about Travis Cloke!

Youngy

Top 6 Fwds from here on out??

My guess Dusty, Gray, Swan, Goddard, Buddy and Lids

nathan

Lets hope so
I have the first five on your list

derek

Boomer won't be far away. Kangaroos draw screams big points for Boomer.

mcleal10

I'm gonna say
Dusty, Gray, Dahlhaus, Titch, Goddard and Lids. Have a feeling Buddy will just miss out, and Swan might get injured. I'm a professional forecaster.

nathan

Hey community

my side is set now

A couple of players on the outer atm

Ryder as a fwd and selwood

Both killing me

I dont think selwood will lift, no cover for him right now maybe when Bartel and duncan come back his scores will increase but currently killing me

And ryder was only bought in for the ruck back up but hasnt played for 6 weeks

Should i take gawn as cover to my rucks which are jacobs and nic nat

Or another fwd?

derek

As a Hawks fan, I do enjoy seeing the cats get beat, but also understand what a gun player Selwood is. Did you know that the Hawks had Pick number 6 in the 2006 draft (Selwood went to Geelong with pick #7). The hawks decided to take Mitch Thorp with #6 pick…..

nathan

Hahha yeah i did know that and i know hes a gun
But only 4 100s out of 12 games and a loss of 200k ive had him from the start is hurting my outpuy and loseing leagur games
Im looking at bringing in pendles for him

Rick Grimes

I'm sticking with Jelwood. He'll be last out if at all. I hung in with NicNat and got the reward, just gotta hope….nay pray….that he and the Cats can sort themselves out over the next week.

T.J.M

Is Tarrent and Lonie to Mitchell and Lambert good trades?

mcleal10

Yes. Look at goddard and lids if you can afford them.

Bill

Should I get in smith this week or wait until he gets a half decent score

derek

He is very cheap and a good option if you are short on cash. I'm thinking he will be a good D7 option, but is far from a premium on current form. A lot of people will be getting Smith into their team at this price, so if he doesn't perform everyone else will be in the same position.

I have had my eye on McGovern all year, but he always seems to be carrying an injury. I'm hoping this weeks rest will be good for him and if he looks injury free, he'll be in my team very soon. Yarran is my cheap smokey option.

nathan

Smith still had a bit of the ball last week
Just butchered it
I have him as my d6

cooky

Thoughts on Montagna as a POD?

Danners

He would be good, but you are paying a bit too much, Ellis, B.Crouch (when he comes back, maybe this week), Neale, there are heaps of others that are cheaper

Supercoach is Life

Hey Community

After my trades this round my team looks like this

I have 7 trades left and 116K in the bank

Team

Shaw, Hooker, Simpson, Gibson, Smith, Ox (Lever, Hamling)

Fyfe, Pendles, Danger, Beams, Wines, Sloane, JPK, Hodge (Steele, Amon, Boston)

Goldy, Nic Nat (Cox)

Gray, Swan, Martin, Buddy, Goddard, Bont (Lambert, Lamb)

Plan

I will wait until Ablett's price goes down and then I will trade in Ablett for Lever and switch Hodge back to the backline. I will also downgrade someone so I can afford Ablett but for now I will leave my team as it is.

Thoughts on my team and plan?

Nick

Who to get out of Simpson and Houli?

Danners

Simpson, a more consistent scorer

Youngy

Simpson! Houli to unconsistent.

Bailey

Thoughts on trades????
Griffen to Pendles
McIntosh to Edwards
Tarrant to Sloane

@AusSports84

Top shelf trades.

@AusSports84

N Roo is a POD I'd steer clear of. The Saints draw gets much tougher from here and I think he's a player we need to enjoy at this stage of his career, as opposed to abusing him when he fails in our sides.
My FWD line is complete (Gray Swan Martin Goddard Mitchell Deledio) with Krak and Steele DPP'ing. Looking for the DPP with McGovern & Higgins to finish it off as I have Missy in the backline.
Some advice I picked up from John Bruyn…. great source 😉

tom

what is neal-bullens job security like?

is it worth bringing him in?

mcleal10

highly rated player. Could be kept in the team if he plays well this week.

tom

kavanagh or neal-bullen?

Guest

Pendlebury or Deledio (DPP) for Selwood?

Rick Grimes

Why you ditching Jelwood? He's spudded it up before and always come home with a wet sail. If you have him, I think you have to ride it out.

derek

you need to find the footage of Selwoods goal in the last quarter of the game against Melbourne. He cleared it from the centre bounce and goaled on the run from 60 metres. Watch that and then ask yourself if you should keep him or not. He is a dead set gun, trying his heart out to carry the cats over the line. (im actually a Hawks fan, and enjoy nothing more than seeing the cats get beat)

Tofor

Agreed. Also a huge Hawks fan and not a huge cats fan, but Selwood is still a gun..
Gotta hold.

Youngy

Agree with Rick and Derek you SHOULDN'T be getting rid of Selwood if you have him he has shown before that he can come home with a wet sail and I don't see why he can't do it again
