cant decide toss up between Liam picken or Luke hodge?

    Motsy · 08/07/2015 at 21:27

    hodge.

    LEKD0G · 08/07/2015 at 21:57

    Hodge

    Youngy · 09/07/2015 at 16:34

    Hodge

Luke · 08/07/2015 at 21:28

dumont or Bont to Steele?

    LEKD0G · 08/07/2015 at 21:57

    Dumont

Luke · 08/07/2015 at 21:29

Bont to Gray or Bont to Bartel in a few weeks, not sure if I will have enough for gaz if I get Gray

    Motsy · 08/07/2015 at 21:40

    Gaz isnt a must have, he only played 1 good quarter against a very poor NM side.

      LEKD0G · 08/07/2015 at 21:57

      I like Gray

Jayne · 08/07/2015 at 21:35

Upgrade or hold on to Smith?

    LEKD0G · 08/07/2015 at 21:57

    Hold

    Youngy · 09/07/2015 at 16:34

    Hold

HallOfFamer · 08/07/2015 at 21:40

Current midfield is Fyfe, Pendles, Danger, Heppell, Shiel, JPK, Beams and Wallis, looking to upgrade Wallis, who do we all think is the best option under 600k? Thanks

    Kev · 08/07/2015 at 22:32

    Some nice options at the Saints with Joey (118 average, 584k), Armitage (116, 555k) and Steven (109, 545k) all pulling big numbers. Hannebery (118, 585k) would be my pick though

      t-Mitch · 08/07/2015 at 22:42

      Armitage or Hannebery are top options but I’d save a trade wait a week or 2 and go Ablett

    lolattack · 09/07/2015 at 12:22

    luke parker easily

    Jacko1998 · 09/07/2015 at 14:26

    parker?

      Dee · 10/07/2015 at 00:21

      Mundy or Hanneberry…..

Chicko · 08/07/2015 at 22:06

Absolute gold Lek!

Antonio · 08/07/2015 at 22:10

Hi guys,

So I’m leading in my Leagues and there’s some big cash to be won. What do you guys recommend I do next? I know every next move is crucial, so a little help would be greatly appreciated.

Defence: Shaw, McDonald, Higgins, Newnes, Smith, Simpson (Lever, Pearce)

Midfield: Pendlebury, Fyfe, Priddis, Heppell, Dangerfield, Cripps, Lewis, Wines (Boston, McKenzie, Amon)

Rucks: Goldstein, Martin (Read)

Forward: Gray, Swan, Goddard, Walker, Deledio, Lonie (Lambert, Steele)

I have 8 trades and $192,000 on the bank. I was thinking Cripps to Hannerbery and maybe just cop the donut for Martin. Any other ideas community?

Reply

    Tyler · 08/07/2015 at 22:28

    Trade out Mckenzie
    Swing Lambert into midfield
    Swing Read into forward
    Trade in Brooksby

    You now have a mid/fwd swing, fwd non-playing player to loophole, ruck cover and you traded out a player who is unlikely to get a game

    Sio · 08/07/2015 at 22:31

    Shaun McKernan for Jack Lonie. Then switch with Read to cover Martin's donut and bring Steele onto the field.

    Kev · 08/07/2015 at 22:38

    Congrats on the leagues mate, hope you hold on. I would look at addressing your F6 first. McKernan might be an option for you at 299k, gives you ruck flexibility

    t-Mitch · 08/07/2015 at 22:39

    Shit I’m worried and I have 10 trades, all I can say is round 23 2014

    @randomcliche · 08/07/2015 at 22:48

    +1 on the Ruc/Fwd swing, and Cripps to Rocky.

Abraxas · 08/07/2015 at 22:11

Need to trade Bennel this week and Tarrant next. Who are the forward options i need to be looking at? Already have Gray, Martin, Bont and Goddard, Thanks a bunch!

    Tyler · 08/07/2015 at 22:33

    I would say the best premos (that you don't have) in the fwd line are Nick and Jack Riewoldt, Zorko, Buddy and Deledio

    Sana · 09/07/2015 at 12:07

    or Swan, Titch, Bartel, Dahlhaus

    frank s · 11/07/2015 at 15:12

    Deledio must have

jordan · 08/07/2015 at 22:17

ranked 400th overall, been unlucky not to be higher due to poor captain choices…

thoughts on either

scott thompson (ade) and 5K in bank or
jordan lewis and 80K in bank..

    brook · 08/07/2015 at 22:33

    lewis

    Tyler · 08/07/2015 at 22:34

    Jordy Lewis is your man

    @randomcliche · 08/07/2015 at 22:54

    If you are full premo, spend every cent if you think they're better. I think they're both occasional best mids in team behind Mitch/Hodge and Sloane/Danger…..yeah…. there's ya answer, Sloane 4-6 weeks, makes him #2 mid for half the rest of the season. When both teams are full strength I'd take Lewis…

      randomcliche · 09/07/2015 at 09:38

      See comments below on uncertainty around how long Sloan is out for. Might be back sooner. Oh without looking at your team I like Armitage over both.

    wise old man · 08/07/2015 at 23:35

    Liam Shiels

    MC · 09/07/2015 at 16:14

    Don't really like either of them, would prefer Steele Sidebottom personally around that price range

    MC · 09/07/2015 at 16:15

    (or Rocky)

Robert · 08/07/2015 at 22:33

Wasted a trade on sloane… thought it was 4-6 weeks but it was 1 week. ffs

    Bluetackle · 08/07/2015 at 22:52

    Says minimum of a month on crows website

      Liam · 08/07/2015 at 22:56

      They said he was back this week on league teams

        Bluetackle · 08/07/2015 at 23:30

        Hope thats correct cause ive got him benched but i cant see it refractured jaw think they will be cautious with him

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/07/2015 at 13:04

      Won’t b back for 4-6

    CoachDamo · 09/07/2015 at 10:08

    Really? That could be great news! I held him last week because I had more than enough players on the field.

      Nathan · 09/07/2015 at 19:21

      Where did you get this load of crap???

Liam · 08/07/2015 at 22:39

Thoughts on bailey dale to Brooksby via cox?

It's to cover for maric and i really don't want a donut next week

Thoughts??

    Tyler · 08/07/2015 at 22:44

    If you have enough trades mate. But good trade otherwise, I think Caleb Daniel took Bailey Dales spot in the team

      Liam · 08/07/2015 at 22:48

      I would have 6 trades left

    Dean · 08/07/2015 at 23:21

    This most likely is a silly question but can you afford McKernan?

    I think using a trade on Brooksby is a waist of a trade. Brooksby will score 40 points tops in my opinion so its not going to matter much unless your playing for rank then every point counts.

Karl · 08/07/2015 at 22:43

Armitage or Callan ward ? Please lekdog reply to me

    t-Mitch · 08/07/2015 at 22:45

    Heads or tails

    Dean · 08/07/2015 at 23:07

    Armitage hands down mate.

    LEKD0G · 09/07/2015 at 02:22

    Armitage for mine

t-Mitch · 08/07/2015 at 22:44

Trade rough?

    LEKD0G · 09/07/2015 at 02:22

    Hmmm might be back next week, hold until we know for sure I'd say

      Derek · 09/07/2015 at 11:28

      Roughy is at least another two weeks away. Watch the video on the Hawks website

Chris · 08/07/2015 at 22:45

Don't know who ta trade oxley for? Houli or Picken. Thoughts?

    Dean · 08/07/2015 at 23:15

    Picken hands down.

    MC · 09/07/2015 at 16:07

    Picken

Ben · 08/07/2015 at 22:49

Is 5 trades too little after this week?

    Dean · 08/07/2015 at 23:14

    Yeah it is mate, but I'll be on 5 trades also after this week. Try and keep your bench cover half decent.

    I have Krakour and I would really love to keep him as my F7 & M9 cover even though he has been dropped this week.

    Derek · 09/07/2015 at 11:28

    You can’t do much about it now

    MC · 09/07/2015 at 16:09

    Depends on the state of your team. I'll likely have 9 trades after this week, but if you're perfectly happy with your team, with a side full of solid premos, you wont even need to use them unless theres a serious injury.

    Youngy · 09/07/2015 at 16:37

    Yes, but depending on your team it could be bad or really bad

Ethan · 08/07/2015 at 22:55

Nick Holman or Nick o brien

    LEKD0G · 09/07/2015 at 02:22

    Neither has long term security mate

      Swans2012 · 09/07/2015 at 08:27

      Yep hold

Tyler · 08/07/2015 at 22:57

Anyone considering Leuenberger?

    LEKD0G · 09/07/2015 at 02:23

    Not when Martin comes back

    Youngy · 09/07/2015 at 16:38

    I would hope not

Dean · 08/07/2015 at 23:04

Having Krakour dropped and Saad looking like he might be rested really hurts. I'm stumped don't know what to do. I have 7 trades left and $83,000 in the bank..

My team is as follows.
Defence:- Shaw, Houli, Hodge, Simpson, Saad, Lever (Hamling, A Pearce)
Midfield:- Fyfe, Pendles, Priddis, Beams, Mundy, Dangerfield, JPK, Parker (Boston, Stretch, Lambert)
Ruck:- Goldy, Blicavs (Read)
Forward:- Martin, Gray, Dahlhaus, Swan, Edwards, Krakouer (Clark, Dale)

I'm looking to go Clark to Steel, then Dale to Gunston because I really think Krakour is keeping as my F7 & M9 via lambert emergency. I then need to figure out how in the world im going to upgrade my final defender. (I still think Saad is worthy as a D5, D6)

Any ideas would greatly be appreciated.

    T-mitch · 09/07/2015 at 00:00

    With only 7 trades left and saad lever and krak in starting side I’d be worried, sounds like you had some hiccups along the way as I’m full premo with 10 trades left, now will come down to luck, mate just trust your gut

      Dean · 09/07/2015 at 16:07

      I'm not concerned about SAAD as I believe he is currently worthy keeping as D6 – I just hope he is playing this week.

      I'm not sure if you have noticed but 3 out of the top 4 ranked players still have both Saad & Oxley in there defence. Defence this year is a lottery, it's far to volatile.
      Providing you have the main 3 or 4 consistent defenders in Shaw, Hodge, Houli or Murphy, Newnes & Picken then your defence is quite safe, most of the other defenders are not consistent and averaging around the 80 mark.
      Take McDonald for example who is currently the highest scoring defender on SC – He is averaging only 78 in his last 6 games and many people have him. Saad has averaged 80 in his last 6 games.
      Granted you could waist a trade and spend more cash on anyone in defence but it wouldn't surprise me at all if Saad scored similar or outscored many of the so called top defenders, if I had to pick one more defender it would be out of Murphy or Picken other then that defence is very risky. Another prime example, a massive 14% have Smith in there defence because he dropped a ton in cash and there all classing Smith as a premo in there defence line.
      In saying that, dont get me wrong if I had the trades and cash then I would most defiantly trade Saad for Murphy or Picken.
      Although cannot see Picken scoring great this week coz he will be tagging GAJ something chronic.

      Krak wont be in my starting 22 in my forward line because I want to trade Clark to Steele and Dale to Gunston which would leave me with Lever to upgrade next week before being full premo. Krak will only be used as bench cover.

    randomcliche · 09/07/2015 at 10:01

    If you wanna keep krak as cover trade Boston and Clarke. I’d bring in Caleb Daniel for Boston swinging krak mid. Krak can still cover most mids except Dalh. 2 doggies should cover dalh. This gives you more cash for someone (with mid fwd dpp) like zorko T.mitchell et al.

    You could also go Gawn (with your trading approach) to give you some ruck cover.

    I think both of these are better than Jack ‘my finger is pretty stuffed’ Gunston.

    Upgrade lever asap after this and ride your luck home. Cheers

      randomcliche · 09/07/2015 at 10:06

      I would prolly trade krak BTW. And you don’t have Steele. Get instead of Caleb. Krak and Clarke for delicious Deledio and Steele imo.

    Derek · 09/07/2015 at 11:31

    I wouldn’t keep Krak. There must be a reason he wasn’t picked. Move him on. Steele is DPP

Gibbo · 08/07/2015 at 23:15

Hi everyone

I have a full premium team with 9 trades left

Im thinking doing wines averaging 104 to armitage averaging 117

Is this a good trade or just an unnecessary sideways trade ?

    T-mitch · 09/07/2015 at 00:01

    Don’t do this please, could cost you

      Swans2012 · 09/07/2015 at 07:03

      No, sideways, Ollie will come good

    CoachDamo · 09/07/2015 at 10:07

    No way – hold on that trade for now. There's every chance Wines could outscore Armitage week to week, so it's not worth it for a few points here and there. You want that trade up your sleeve for finals in case of injury/form slumps.

    Youngy · 09/07/2015 at 16:38

    "unnecessary sideways trade"

Jeff · 08/07/2015 at 23:15

Hi Community

This is my current team:

Def: Shaw, Gibbo, Ox, Simpson, Hooker, Smith (Lever, Hamling)

Mid: Fyfe, Pendles, Danger, Beams, Wines, Parker, JPK, Hodge (Boston, Lambert, Amon)

Ruc: Goldy, Nic Nat (Cox)

Fwd: Gray, Swan, Martin, Buddy, Goddard, Bont (Steele, Lamb)

Unsure what to do this week I want to trade the Ox out because he has a high BE and I want to get Ablett in 2-3 weeks.

Thoughts?

    Jeff · 08/07/2015 at 23:16

    6 trades and 12k in the bank

      Gibbo · 08/07/2015 at 23:19

      Boston to caleb
      Ox to laird maybe and leave last 4 trades for injuries

        Derek · 09/07/2015 at 11:34

        Ox to Lewis via Hodge

    Liam · 09/07/2015 at 11:38

    Trade Boston to Payne (a non playing saints player to loophole with)
    Then trade Oxley to Armitage or Hanners via Hodge dpp
    Hope I helped

Brandon · 08/07/2015 at 23:21

Hi community, I'm playing for a cash league and ranked 3rd on the ladder. It's a really close ladder with teams all within 2-3 games from each other

Defence: Shaw, Simpson, Gibson, Newnes, Smith, Lever (Hamling, Pearce)

Midfield: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Beams, JPK, Parker, Wines, Cripps, Jelwood (CEY, Boston, Lambert)

Rucks: Goldstein, Nic Nat (Read)

Forwards: Gray, Martin, Mitchell, Dahlhaus, Swan, McKernan (Krakouer, Dale)

I have 7 trades left and $295,400 in the warchest. First trade I'm making is CEY to Steele and second trade maybe Pearce to Hodge or lek dog's man Bob Murphy or Cripps to Hodge, Hannebery or Armitage. An elite premium scorer, don't care if I have 3 swan midfielders. Would love your thoughts community

    Swans2012 · 09/07/2015 at 08:25

    Cey to Steele seems good, I think Pearce up is a bit of a waste of cash, wait a couple of weeks for one of the other Defense rookies to fatten then go up. I like Cripps to Hannebery. That takes you to 5 trades with enough cash to do your last two upgrades (f6 and d6)….3 trades is tight but doable ( I’m hoping cause that’s all I’ll have left in a fortnight)

    randomcliche · 09/07/2015 at 10:17

    CEY to Steele is good. I’d go Cripps to rocky. This saves even more cash for upgrading next week and keeping more swings like mckernan. Next week Hodge from def rookie and Boston or krak to Deledio.

Mike · 08/07/2015 at 23:32

Thanks Lek, great vid once again, though you do need to harden up and go and give some blood.

Little kids, cute cherubs with wavy hair and big smiles and hugs need blood when they get sick.

Go give them some.

Just go in. plonk yourself down and don’t look. It’ll be over before you know, and you prob won’t even notice.

    LEKD0G · 09/07/2015 at 02:23

    Haha thanks mate, I think you're right

oliverfisher · 09/07/2015 at 00:30

Hi community, i'm in need of some advice. I'm looking at maybe one trade this week, which is to bring in Steele to generate some cash for the coming weeks to bring in Ablett or some other ultra premo for Cripps. 5,900k in the kitty and 9 trades left at this point . Should i bring him in or hold the trades and maybe bring in a different rookie later on in the season? If i do bring him in it would probably be for CEY, but could also considering dumping Hogan. This is my current squad,

Defence: Shaw, Hodge, Simpson, Newnes, Ibbotson, Smith (Hamling, Beasley)

Mids: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Priddis, Kennedy, Griffin, Lewis, Rockliff, Cripps (CEY, Boston, Kavanagh)

Rucks: Goldstein, Maric (Brooksby)

Forwards: Gray, Martin, Goddard, Swan, Wingard, Zorko (Hogan,Read)

    Swans2012 · 09/07/2015 at 08:20

    Cey to Steele seems a no brainer, makes cash and opens swing set. Cripps is due to start bleeding some cash so consider trading though a week or so early to bring gary in IMO

    randomcliche · 09/07/2015 at 10:28

    Trade Fyfe. Your team is too strong! Cripps to Gary at some point seems pretty logical. I don’t think it matters re CEY or hogan. You are not going to run them anytime soon.

    You could look to get in picken in def to set up a def mid swing set in future. Allows you to move smith to bench till he starts coming good.

    Good luck and well done a solid team.

    Derek · 09/07/2015 at 11:38

    CEY to Steele

    Cripps to Gaz. Be bold… Make a shark move!

Cliffy · 09/07/2015 at 00:36

Hello community,

So I was wondering if I could have some thoughts/ideas on my current team at the moment (currently 8 trades remaining and $114,400 in the bank):

Defenders: Shaw, Houli, Newnes, Ibbotson, Hodge, Lever (Hamling, A.Pearce)

Midfielders: Fyfe, Pendles, Hannebery, JPK, Gray, Selwood, Cripps, Wines (Boston,

D.McKenzie, Amon)

Rucks: Goldstein, Maric (Read)

Forwards: Martin, Dahlhaus, Swan, Goddard, Franklin, Ziebell (Steele, Lambert)

I believe there isn’t a great deal left to do in upgrades, just the last Defense spot (D6) once either the likes of Hamling/Lever/A.Pearce fatten up enough to possibly trade one of them to Bob Murphy I’m eyeing off and last Midfield spot in hopefully going Cripps to GAJ (M8).

What do you all reckon?

Cheers πŸ™‚

    Swans2012 · 09/07/2015 at 08:17

    Yeah looks like sit tight is the right option though cripps could start to bleed some cash (not to mention he’s been in a moon boot this week…) I’m playing for overall so have gone cripps to rocky while it’s possible…… Consider this as you have trades up your sleeve as with your bank you could easily go lever/Hamling straight to a fallen Defense premo leaving 6 for LTI’s

      Swans2012 · 09/07/2015 at 08:18

      That is once lever/Hamling fatten appropriately

Nicholas · 09/07/2015 at 01:04

5 trades left with 19,200k in the bank. Need to fill that last defender slot but not sure how over the next few weeks.
need some help with leslie not playing and not many ways for me to gain cash
Shaw, tmac, hodge, taylor, simpson, hamling (lever, leslie)
fyfe, pendle, priddis, kennedy, parker, selwood, lewis, wines (boston, kavagnah, lambert)
goldy, nic nat ( reda)
martin, gray, swan, goddard, franklin, deledio ( steele, goddard)

    Swans2012 · 09/07/2015 at 08:12

    G’day, 5 trades is getting tight! (I’m on 5 as well but full premo). I’d probably sit tight for a few weeks and loophole Hamling and lever, should be able to get 60-70 out of one of them. If no Injuries for the next few weeks chop one of those defenders and upgrade to a premium, but I’d leave this a bit. If you happen to lose a premo to an LTI in the next couple I’d look to make a little cash there (pick up a fallen premo) to upgrade one of those backs….

Budstar · 09/07/2015 at 08:35

G'day Mo and the community!! Sitting around 600!! 15k and 9 trades left. Got Maric out for a week, was thinking downgrading Lonie to lambert, then Maric to Bliclavs about 100k leftover after. Or was thinking just make the 1 trade Lonie to Mckernan for dual position and bench big Ivan!! What's everyone's thoughts…Cheers

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 11:14

    if you're going for the cash, you've gotta be bold. McKernan up against Gawn this week. I would bench Maric and get McKernan in and bank on him getting 90+. Bombers will look to come out gun's blazing this week, so he could have a good game. Then you've got yourself back up too

      Rick Grimes · 09/07/2015 at 11:23

      Gawn will smoke him…I hope.

Mac · 09/07/2015 at 09:02

10 trades left 130k in the bank. Not sure what trades to make? Advice please!

Shaw, Simpson, Hodge, Gibson, Murphy, Newnes, Pearce, Hamling
Fyfe, Priddis, Beams, JPK, Parker, Selwood, Treloar, Rockliff, Dumont, Steele, Lambert
Goldstein, Maric, Read
Gray, Martin, Swan, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Lonie, McLean, Goddard.

Not sure wether to trade Maric. I need to move McLean and Dumont on as McLean isn't playing and Dumont is bleeding cash.

    Gibbo · 09/07/2015 at 09:18

    Mclean to caleb daniel
    Lonie to gray

    Leaves you 8 trades and full premo team

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 11:42

    Keep Maric, and trade for McKernan as ruck and fwd cover.

Sambo · 09/07/2015 at 09:10

Hi Mo and this beloved community, My trade options this week is to trade out Oxley for either Hodge, Newnes or Murphy and also trading out Wallis swinging steele to the middle and bringing in either Lids, Zorko or Wingard. I really like Zorko but my fear is his output will be affected by the return of Rockliff and Hanley…..
Your thought will be greatly appreciated community…………

    I N Pieman · 09/07/2015 at 09:39

    Cast your mind back to last season & the presence of Rocky & Hanley had a positive impact. Those 2 & Stef Martin returned some ludicrous scores.

Jeff · 09/07/2015 at 09:23

How many trades does everyone have before any trades this round?

    CoachDamo · 09/07/2015 at 10:01

    11 at the moment – how are you going Jeff?

      Jeff · 09/07/2015 at 10:06

      Only have 6 trades left

        randomcliche · 09/07/2015 at 10:33

        6 here. Not enough!

          Marcus · 09/07/2015 at 12:00

          12 with full premo

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 11:35

    7. down to 5 now. went Cripps to Rocky and Boston to Caleb Daniel via DPP

    Canardly See · 09/07/2015 at 11:48

    12 – will use 2 this week.

    Donavan · 10/07/2015 at 09:23

    10, may use 1 this week.

Kev · 09/07/2015 at 09:47

My midfield

Fyfe, Pendlebury, Heppell, Griffen, Cripps, Wines, Sloane, Rockliff, (Ellis-Yolmen, Boston, Dumont)

Will upgrade Griffen, Cripps, Sloane and Ellis-Yolmen to Ablett and 3 others.

Which 3 are must haves

Hannebery, Priddis, Beams, Dangerfield, Cotchin, Kennedy, Parker, Jack?

    CoachDamo · 09/07/2015 at 10:00

    Good question Kev – it's not easy to choose from a group like that.

    Beams and Priddis – YES and YES – neither of these guys have dropped below 100 since Round 4, they're in great form and you know exactly what you'll get from them.

    Dangerfield and JPK – not quite as consistent as Beams and Priddis but can pull out huge scores.

    Hannebery – he's in ripping form at the moment. I'd never been a huge fan SC wise but hard to knock his form this year!

    Parker, Jack and Cotchin are all stars but still worry me – they can score very well but also have quiet games – not sure if you want them giving you a 65 during an important final.

    So if it was me…Beams, Priddis and either Danger or JPK. Good luck!

      Jeff · 09/07/2015 at 10:09

      Beams, Dangerfield and Hannebery or Parker

Nick · 09/07/2015 at 10:27

thoughts on shane edwards?

Pinidu.C · 09/07/2015 at 10:33

I have enough money to buy any two defenders to finish my premium defence. I already have Hodge, Shaw, Hibberd and Newnes. I cannot decide between Simpson, Houli and Bob Murphy! Please Help!

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 11:11

    not THAT much different between them IMO, but Houli and Simpson can go pretty big on their day so I'd have them edging Murphy

Pinidu.C · 09/07/2015 at 10:37

My trade plan:

This week:
OUT: Sloane, Oxely
IN: Simpson/Houli/Murphy
Via Saad DPP

Next week:
OUT: Boston, Hamling
IN: J.Kolodjishni/Maynard, Caleb Daniel

Round 17:
OUT: Saad
IN: Ablett/Priddis/Rocky/Armitage/Hanners

Full PREMIUM with 4 trades left. Thoughts?

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 10:57

    I would personally hold Hamling on your bench. seems like he'll continue to get a game, especially with Roughead going down, plus his bench scores are pretty solid.

bigfigrig · 09/07/2015 at 11:11

Best 2 forward options out of Franklin, Riewoldt, Dahlhaus, Zorko, Lids, Ziebell, Edwards..thanks community!

    Wattsieesq · 09/07/2015 at 11:19

    Lids and Dahl for me.

      judd0 · 09/07/2015 at 11:34

      Agreed.

      CarlaShirly · 09/07/2015 at 11:41

      Zorko last 5 rounds avg 104 and looks real good
      Lids best option i think to finish your 2nd option

    northernsoul74 · 09/07/2015 at 13:06

    Dahl starting to look tired and is getting a lot of attention from the opposition at the moment. He'll prob go massive this week now I've said that.

    MC · 09/07/2015 at 14:09

    Buddy and Dahl

Dave Dreamer · 09/07/2015 at 11:31

Any advice on my team please. 12 trades left, $470k in the kitty

Hodge, Simpson, Shaw, Houli, Murphy, Enright (Ibbotson, Saad, Hambling)
Fyfe, Pendles, Beams, JPK, Priddis, Armitage, Danger, Hanners (Neale, Cripps, Lambert)
Goldy, Biclavs (McKernan)
Gray, Dusty, Lids, Mitchell, Swan, Dahl (Zorko, Steele)

Was thinking hold trades this week and then go Cripps up to GAJ? Ranked 1st and going for league win.

    Derek · 09/07/2015 at 11:45

    They even let you have 3 defence bench players. Nice

    I’d be looking at bringing Libba in to your team, maybe TBC to strengthen your rucks

    judd0 · 09/07/2015 at 11:46

    If this team is real, I am jealous.
    Mostly about how you have 3 DEF bench players.

      CarlaShirly · 09/07/2015 at 11:53

      love seeing teams that magically have 1 million extra dollars and a 3rd def bench option.
      Hey you missed out showing us you still held Ablett on your bench

    northernsoul74 · 09/07/2015 at 13:04

    That's some team with 12 trades left.

    J_Drama · 09/07/2015 at 21:10

    All playing, Full premium team! 12 trades, and a lazy $470k in the kitty!

Do i keep oxley or trade i only have 3 trades with full premo except for ox thoughts fellas?

    judd0 · 09/07/2015 at 11:48

    Hold for now, if you have a good run and still have those 3 trades come finals, then maybe upgrade him.

    Youngy · 10/07/2015 at 19:46

    Hold, trades are worth a lot if you only have 3

@KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 11:36

Not sure if the article will come, but what are we all doing VC and C wise?

Thinking I might take another punt on Pendles tonight with the VC, into Fyfe C if it fails.

    judd0 · 09/07/2015 at 11:49

    Yer doing the same I think mate.

    Canardly See · 09/07/2015 at 11:52

    Pendles for VC, Fyfe for C, or take a punt on Goldstein as VC

    Tyler · 09/07/2015 at 12:27

    Last 2 weeks I've gone vc goldy with fyfe C, hasn't failed me yet

      @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 13:17

      think I've changed my tune and will do the same as you. No Kornes for Port anymore though so Pendles could have a bit of space. decisions….

    Poloko48 · 10/07/2015 at 00:30

    Did Swan VC which I’ll be locking in.

Flaccid Jaff · 09/07/2015 at 11:42

Last defensive upgrade. Enright, Picken or Houli?

    CarlaShirly · 09/07/2015 at 11:49

    Dogs have easier run home now so could lower Pickens Avg a bit?
    Enright is exceeding all expectations atm but cant see him keeping up that Avg
    Houli best option of the 3 for mine

    Tofor · 10/07/2015 at 09:38

    In the same boat as you.
    I've gone with Picken.
    Started wuth a 56, 51 and 64 in his first three.. since then, his lowest score is 89, and he's only gone below 100 3 times in his last 9 games.. including a 143, a 140 and a 120 last week. Looks consistent, regardless of opponent

CarlaShirly · 09/07/2015 at 11:45

no trades from me this week

looking at getting every last dollar from Hamling and Boston to hopefully pick budget-priced players
have 159k in the bank with 5 trades left atm so need to hold anyway for the next 2-3 weeks

Trent · 09/07/2015 at 11:53

who is the best to trade in this week?
Hodge
Picken
houli
Laird
Murphy

    CarlaShirly · 09/07/2015 at 12:02

    I can narrow it down a bit for you lets see…………..
    Hodge then Houli then Murphy other two pass

      Tyler · 09/07/2015 at 12:48

      I wouldn't rule out picken, although I do think he is a worse option than the others you named. Laird I think won't be able to keep up his scoring once smithy is back to his best (hopefully).

    Tofor · 10/07/2015 at 09:39

    In my opinion, you listed them in order.
    I've got Hodge, and gone with Picken for my final defensive spot.

      Holty · 10/07/2015 at 11:17

      Agreed. Still not much love for Picken and I don't know why? He lost his tagging role after round 3. Since then he has been arguably the best performing SC back in the league let alone one of the best in SC. He is averaging 113 in his last 9 games with a game low of 89. You cant argue with that.

        BKW · 10/07/2015 at 16:47

        Yep – did the math and worked this out myself as well, impressive and very consistent – also averaging 8 tackles a game over the past 9 games

Timmy · 09/07/2015 at 11:56

Hamling out

    CarlaShirly · 09/07/2015 at 11:59

    not playing this week?

      northernsoul74 · 09/07/2015 at 13:02

      Yeah Hamling hasn't travelled. Confirmed McLean, Honeychurch, and Roughhead also out. Prudden to debut.

      Timmy · 09/07/2015 at 13:22

      He hurt his back in a marking contest right near the end of the last weeks match. Must be still sore

CarlaShirly · 09/07/2015 at 11:56

Derek don't hurt me too much this week plz

    Derek · 09/07/2015 at 13:40

    You know I still have Cloke & Griffin! Can’t hurt anyone too much.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/07/2015 at 13:58

      Yeah been watching your almost trades of cloke over the past few weeks with a smile on my face. But for many different reasons haven’t been able to pull the trigger. One day soon he will disappear from your team πŸ™‚

        Derek · 09/07/2015 at 17:33

        Yeah. It’s been a love/hate affair with Cloke. He was only going to be with me a few weeks but he keeps showing a bit and he is a big POD. every week I threaten to trade him. Lol

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 10/07/2015 at 17:06

          bet you after last night it is back to hate πŸ™‚

judd0 · 09/07/2015 at 12:06

Do we really think that JPK is over priced at 510K?
I traded him in for Watson this week. Looking for a Mid around the 500k mark. The only other one that I looked at was Sidebottom. Not going near Rockliff for the third time this season, and already have selwood, not that he is a good option at the moment anyway.

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 12:26

    Am going all in on Rockliff. Live and die by the rock

      judd0 · 09/07/2015 at 13:59

      I died by the rock, then came back to life, then the rock killed me again. I will not be revived once more by rocky for fear he will just kill me again.
      All this dieing is not good for my mental health.

        @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 14:40

        I agree, dying isn't good, but you gotta get a set of rock's and get in the rock

          judd0 · 09/07/2015 at 16:42

          By the sounds of it I need more rock in my life.
          I might contact Dwayne Johnson

    Tyler · 09/07/2015 at 12:29

    No way is JPK underpriced at 510k. towards the start of the season getting him under 550k was an absolute steal

nathan · 09/07/2015 at 12:07

Gday guys

pretty happy with my team but no money left for top players

Im looking at offloading mitch wallis

Do i wait for a week and grab ablett or do i grab the best available?

Also need to bring in a forward

Currently have gray, buddy, martin, goddard, swan and gawn

Gawn will make way next week or the ine after

Im looking at deliedo or dahlhous

    Deadly · 09/07/2015 at 14:10

    Wait a week as he is the best available

lolattack · 09/07/2015 at 12:32

cripps for rockliff or lewis?

    Tyler · 09/07/2015 at 12:44

    rocky

Tyler · 09/07/2015 at 12:52

Hamling, mclean and honeychurch out against the suns, while josh prudden (who is supposedly a pretty good rookie) is making his debut and libba is getting better
http://www.afl.com.au/news/2015-07-09/roughead-ou

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 13:11

    bloody Hamling

      Tofor · 09/07/2015 at 13:21

      Yeah painful Re: Hamling. Leaves me no defensive bench cover..
      Freaking McKenzie from St Kilda!! Where is he?!

Tofor · 09/07/2015 at 13:07

Thinking of going Mitch Clark -> Steele

Would you trade out Wallis or Cripps..? and for Hannebery, Dangerfield, Beams, Priddis or Rockcliff (considering value, price, likely output from here on in, risk etc.). Can't decide! ha ha.

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 13:15

    Good trade.

    And I'm getting rid of Cripps this week. High BE and hurt his ankle last week. Knowing my luck he'll go out this week and have a blinder haha if Cripps is not in your final team plans, it's a good time to pull the trigger. He's done well

    northernsoul74 · 09/07/2015 at 13:16

    Similar boat. Have Cripps, Wallis and Sloane still. One of them will become Rocky tonight pending teams. Cant believe Sloane will be back as rumoured on league teams..

      Tofor · 09/07/2015 at 13:21

      Hey are you sure about Sloane? Painful if true as I got rid of him when I heard 4-6 weeks? Got any links to him being expected to play?
      So you guys would probably cull Cripps before Wallis? Really can't split them?
      I traded in Rocky before his last injury and it's a massive risk to jump back on.
      I've already got Parker and Kennedy from the Swans in mid, going Hannebery seems a bit Sydney heavy, but he's just been doing so well consistently. I think Dangerfield can come down a bit, Priddis not quite as consistent.. maybe Beams is the way?

        @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 15:00

        only reasoning I have to cull Cripps first is the injury and moon boot. plus he seems like he won't hit his BE this week. am a little concerned that Wallis may tag GAJ this week which could result in a low score also, but am sticking with culling Cripps

        northernsoul74 · 09/07/2015 at 15:35

        No just someone on here mentioned that on league teams last night they were expecting Sloane to play. Crows website still says a month so got to assume he wont be playing.

    Tofor · 09/07/2015 at 15:51

    Thanks for the pointers guys.
    I'll be keen to see the line ups.. especially regarding Cripps… whether McKenzie is selected…Lambert… Kavangh.. Steele…
    If Cripps is selected, I'll still probably go Wallis to Hannebery.
    Tell you what though, I'm mighty tempted to go for Armitage as a bit of a POD.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/07/2015 at 13:08

Any news on Harley Bennell? Will he play this week? Hearing different reports from yes to 4-5 weeks to season. Anyone got any actual facts?

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 13:12

    I read he's not playing this week, but they reckon he'll be available for selection next week

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/07/2015 at 13:17

      Ta got cover for him this week if rocky gets on the park. If out for a number of weeks may have to go up to abs/beams in 1-2 weeks and keep cripps on the pine who was gonna b my upgrade.

Luke · 09/07/2015 at 13:15

Looking to strengthen my backline this week with the following trades Boston or Krak to Payne (Non Playing DPP) and Alex Pearce to Hodgey. Who to trade out Boston (Playing) or Krak (Omitted)?

    Silly to trade a playing mid (if named) with more coin to make so given your choices Krak

Fwd Gray buddy Martin Goddard swan lids (TBC Clark)

I have 15 trades left and 40k

Thinking TBC to McKernan for fwd ruck cover (forgot to pull the trigger on this trade last week) and Oxley to Steele via dmac

Thoughts?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/07/2015 at 13:43

    Tbc needs to go. If u want fwd/ruck cover Mckernan as good as any. Will give u 70 odd points per week.

    Derek · 09/07/2015 at 13:52

    Start be getting rid of non-players. Mckenzie and TBC. Make some cash

    Then start upgrading, CEY, Clark, Oxley, lummbba, Boston

    Don’t worry about Ric/fwd swing. You have heaps of trades

      @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 14:52

      mckenzie has DPP which could prove handy. will probably hold him in the MID just for that reason

Daniel · 09/07/2015 at 14:00

Guys I need urgent help. I have Bennel, Maric,Watson and Hamling all in one pileup. I need 2 good trades to minimise the damage but I cant think of anything. This is my team
Def: Shaw, Houli, Rance, Higgins, Burgoyne, Hamling/ Mckenzie, Goddard
Mid: Fyfe, Armitage, JPK, Parker, Treloar, Griffen, Watson, Lewis/ Boston, Glenn, Steele
Ruck: Goldstein, Maric/ Cox
Forward: Gray, Swan, Goddard, T mitch, Bont, Bennel/ Hogan, Lambert.

Please help guys. Cheers

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/07/2015 at 14:07

    Wait on teams but have to move Watson on depends hos much cash u have but side bum, dahl and jelwood r options. Maric and hamling probably only gonna miss one. If not worried about rank probably just take the hit on Maric and Goddard or Mac might get named.

    Or

    Trade watto to hodge swing hodge into Def via mac and bring Steele or Boston onto field.

    Budstar · 09/07/2015 at 14:22

    Bennell to McKernan swing to cover Maric. Watson to Hodge to cover backs. Hogan and Steele onfield

Barney · 09/07/2015 at 14:03

Hi guys. Who’s the best option to upgrade R2. Have Goldy. Nic Nat or Blicavs.

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 14:36

    Nic Nat

    Last 3 Rd Avg: 133.67
    Last 5 Rd Avg: 126.40

    Has a low of 75 but is in ripping form.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/07/2015 at 15:13

      What are the same figures for blic? I reckon they would b pretty similar. B interesting to compare.

        @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 15:22

        how about that 3 round average. identical to Nit Nat haha weird.

        Last 3 Rd Avg: 133.67
        Last 5 Rd Avg: 122.60

        High Score: 153
        Low Score: 73

        Cheaper than Nic Nat at the moment too. I guess maybe just have a look at who they have playing in the run home / supercoach finals, and then make a choice.

SuperCoachMan · 09/07/2015 at 14:13

I've got full premo and 8 trades left: My Backline currently sits at Hodge, Ibbotson, Newnes, Birchall, Simpson –> Hamling, Pearce
Is this backline too inconsistent? Is it worth using a trade on Ibbotson/Birchall to a Shaw/Houli?

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 14:31

    Based on Ibbo's past few weeks, hold. Am holding him in my team. Would get rid of Birchall before him

Stickman · 09/07/2015 at 14:15

I've held Mitch Clark this long.
Is it time to go or should I keep him?
I have 8 trades left.

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 14:51

    gotta go. even if he gets back in soon, i'd still get rid of him. do you have Steele?

      Stickman · 09/07/2015 at 18:56

      Nope, was going straight to Steele.

cooky · 09/07/2015 at 15:03

have Maric and nic nat in ruck, have no ruck cover since maric out. i have mitch clark trade to max gawn to cover this and gawn will go back to f6 afte,r thoughts?

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 15:13

    who will fill your vacant FWD spot this week? would have to be one of the FWD/RUCK players..?

      cooky · 09/07/2015 at 16:04

      have j steele already.

        @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 16:30

        maybe I'm missing something, but if you plan to move Gawn freely between the ruck and forward line, don't you need another DPP ruck like Gawn to do that?

r2d2 · 09/07/2015 at 15:22

Have maric and krak out this week …. Am thinking trading krak for Mckernan …. Thoughts ?

r2d2 · 09/07/2015 at 15:23

Would still have Steele and lambert as dpp to swing with my fwds gray dusty ziebell goddard and Zorko ,swan

    r2d2 · 09/07/2015 at 15:47

    And cripps too rocky or jpk …? Bit stuck ,,, rocky has hurt me twice …

Jacko · 09/07/2015 at 15:33

want to trade cripps for ablett, with both most likely going to drop in price. Do i keep cripps till ablett hits his lowest price or trade cripps for someone else?

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 16:03

    both will likely drop in price, but GAJ probably more, so you could hold off a week and save a bit of money

      Barney · 09/07/2015 at 16:06

      Depending how he goes but you must consider bringing him in – probably round 17

        BundyBear · 09/07/2015 at 18:28

    Jacob · 09/07/2015 at 16:10

    Montagna is playing really well atm but not sure if he is worth the 580k should probs wait a week or 2 for rocky and armitage is a really solid option my opinion the best choice out of the 3

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 16:14

    Rocky. save the cash to upgrade somebody else if need be. Take a chance!

    why not leave Steele where he is for bench cover, bring in somebody like a JPK for CEY, and then bring in Hodge for Saad in DEF?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/07/2015 at 16:16

    Geezs with only 4 left I’d relax for a week or two and keep your fingers off the trade button

Trent · 09/07/2015 at 16:17

who the best trade?
Deledio
t.mitchell
franklin
swan

    Liam · 09/07/2015 at 16:19

    Deledio

Jimm · 09/07/2015 at 16:28

Hey everyone

What to do with josh gibson

Held him all this time he hasnt cracked the ton for quite some time

Hold or trade ?

9 trades and full premo atm

    Jacob · 09/07/2015 at 16:38

    If he is your biggest problem you should trade him for a solid defender like murphy,hodge or shaw maybe a range if your low on cash

    judd0 · 09/07/2015 at 16:40

    Frawley being out seems to hurt his scores.
    I have him aswell, but I'm not at full premo yet so I'll be holding.
    If you have cash to go up to a hodge, houli, Shaw, Picken, Murphy etc in 1 trade then go for it.

Jeff · 09/07/2015 at 16:38

Looking at bringing in a rookie for Clark.
Can't decide between either Obrien (Ess) or Neal-Bullen (Melb). Who do you think will make the most $$$ over the next 3/4 weeks?

    Nato · 09/07/2015 at 19:26

    Im tossing up the same question. Im also looking at Lambert too.
    Obrien didnt look great last week, but hopefully should get games. NB's scoring looks the best of the lot but not sure about JS.

    Anyone else have any thoughts?

Jacob · 09/07/2015 at 16:39

Is Sidebottom a good pick

    Tyler · 09/07/2015 at 19:18

    For his price yes

    Youngy · 09/07/2015 at 21:05

    I will be bringing in him or Ablett depending on next few weeks

Youngy · 09/07/2015 at 16:45

Need to get rid of Cripps can get anyone under 610k. Already have Fyfe, Beams, Pend, JPK, Parker, Griffen, Rockliff

Thinking of getting Priddis, but am really liking Mundy as a cheaper option

What to do Community?

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 16:48

    I wanted Mundy too, but then somebody warned me about Ross the Boss resting players at the end of the year and I got spooked

      @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 16:57

      I'd give Montagna and Armitage a look as well as Priddis

Rick Grimes · 09/07/2015 at 16:47

Who are people captaining this week. I’ve been very hit and miss. Pendles vc maybe?

Jordan · 09/07/2015 at 16:48

hey everyone,

This is my current team (7 trades and 40,000 left)

DEF: McDonald, Rance, Docherty, Taylor, Smith, Hamling (Edwards, Goddard)
MID: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Hannebery, Priddis, Ward, Lewis, Wines, Rockliff (Steele, Lambert, Smith)
RUC: Goldy, Jacobs (Cox)
FWD: Gray, Dahlhaus, Goddard, Mitchell, N. Riewoldt, Gawn (Dale, Lamb)

I'd really appreciate thoughts on ways to improve my team. Especially how to upgrade a rookie defender to a premium.

Cheers.

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 09/07/2015 at 16:56

    well given that Hamling isn't playing this week, you're in a bit of a pickle. Not many plump rookies there either. tough spot

    @randomcliche · 10/07/2015 at 00:33

    Is that Issac Smith on bench? Or is it Clem/Clay. If it IS and you if you need the points this round consider trading whichever one and Dale, swing goddard fwd and buy Higgins. (Give you a Def/Fwd swing). Otherwise your lack of cash is super awkward!

    Other thoughts/searches. N Holman, playing defender rookie. Also neal-bullen week 3.

    Alternatively, Leuenberger could be a temp ruck fix at best. Although McKernan is prolly better just….but does cost more and I'd just save the cash if you don't think you'll run him beyond this week.

Moonman · 09/07/2015 at 17:00

So I need to bring my mids up to scratch…
Currently have Fyfe, Pendlebury, JPK, Mundy, Lewis, Shiel, Wallis, Cripps (Steele, Boston, Maynard)
Thinking trading Wallis and Cripps this week but for who? $270k in the bank and 9 trades remaining.
Can go almost any combination. Looking at Beams, Priddis, Joey, Arma, Parker, Rocky Hanna or even
Blicavs for Ruck cover or possibly others? Any ideas??
Cheers!

    Jordan · 09/07/2015 at 17:10

    beams is a quality player, but rocky will score the same as him, if not better once he feels comfortable with those ribs. I'd go with Rocky and Priddis

Baggyizzle · 09/07/2015 at 17:06

Hi there!

Any advice would be great – Plan is to keep the Bont till Bartel is ready. – 8 Trades Left (haven't used any this week) – 200k in the Bank
Also thinking to keep riding the Gaff wave till ablett is ready.

B: Shaw, Houli, Bob Murph, Newnes, K.Simpson – (hamling, lever)
M: Fyfe, JPK, Penduls, Hanners, Gaff, Danger, Heppel, Selwood – (Boston, Glenn, Lambert)
F: Martin, Franklin, Gray, Swan, Goddard, Bont – (Steele, Hugh G)

    Baggyizzle · 09/07/2015 at 17:07

    Woops sorry

    Rucks are: Goldy, Nic Nat (Cox)

    @randomcliche · 10/07/2015 at 00:19

    sounds like you've got your plan bud.

    Locked and Loaded · 10/07/2015 at 09:02

    Who is your missing defender?

Baggyizzle · 09/07/2015 at 17:06

Woops sorry

Rucks are: Goldy, Nic Nat (Cox)

Jordan · 09/07/2015 at 17:29

hold and wait for bartel as you said. Great team!

Mac · 09/07/2015 at 17:33

Pleas what trades should I be making if any? 10 trades and 130 k in the bank.

Shaw, Simpson, Hodge, Gibson, Murphy, Newnes, Pearce, Hamling
Fyfe, Priddis, Beams, JPK, Parker, Selwood, Treloar, Rockliff, Dumont, Steele, Lambert
Goldstein, Maric, Read
Gray, Martin, Swan, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Lonie, McLean, Goddard.

Was thinking Dumont to O'Brien and Read to Brooksby?

    Tyler · 09/07/2015 at 18:03

    Read to brooksby is good but mcleans out for the season so I would trade him out, swing steele into fwd line and trade a rookie in

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 10/07/2015 at 17:08

    brooks out so no go on that one.

Magic Mick · 09/07/2015 at 17:38

Maric for who? Have enough cash for any ruck option and already have Goldy. 12 trades.

    Tyler · 09/07/2015 at 19:20

    Blicavs or Nic Nat

Juzzy · 09/07/2015 at 17:40

Hi Community. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Hamling is my D6 with no bench coverage (McKenzie, Edwards). Rest of team is set.
Only 6 trades left ….
Option 1 . Hamling to Holman to make money. Next week Mckenzie to Hodge(or any other premo) 2 trades used.
Option 2 . Take a punt on trading Hamling to a left-field D6 and hope they get the job done. 1 trade used.
The 3 I can afford, and interest me are Burgoyne, Marley Williams, and Malceski.

    Tyler · 09/07/2015 at 18:05

    1. If they aren’t premos or fallen premos, there isn’t any point trading them in. And I would stay away from malceski

      Juzzy · 09/07/2015 at 18:29

      Ta Tyler.
      Williams is a late out for the Woods.
      Could be the universe telling me to go premos πŸ™‚

Cliffy · 09/07/2015 at 17:50

So as I mentioned earlier today, was going to shop for a cover R3 for Maric this week, which of these guys looks the best option, McKernan or Brooksby?

    Juzzy · 09/07/2015 at 18:30

    McKernan for sure Cliffy.
    Brooksby is out ..

Moonman · 09/07/2015 at 18:00

Hi Guys

DEF: McDonald / Gibson / Birchall / Smith / Hibberd / Saad (Hamling / Lever)
MID: Fyfe / Pendles / Mundy / JPK / Lewis / Shiel / Wallis / Cripps (Steele / Boston / Maynard)
RUC: Goldy / Nic Nat (Cox)
FWD: Gray / Swan / Martin / Titch / Bont / Edwards (Lambert / Lamb)

Where is my biggest problem? Defence right?! But is Hodge and Shaw a better bet than two gun Mids for Wallis and Cripps?

Jay · 09/07/2015 at 18:00

Fellas

One more and I have finished my backline but which one?

Kade Kolodjashnij

Robert murphy

do I trade him out or hold?

Tyler · 09/07/2015 at 18:32

Some sc relevant players news: Jayden Laverde named but kavanagh is out, vandenberg back in, lever is back, saad is out, boston is out, brooksby is out, dumont is out, jake kolodjashnij is out, boekhorst is out, jimmy bartel is back, james kelly is back, rockliff is back and hanley is back

    Poloko48 · 09/07/2015 at 19:23

    Newnes & Steele on extended benches and thanks to no Boston or Hamling I have no cover – should I be concerned?

      Derek · 09/07/2015 at 19:29

      No. Both will play

Liam · 09/07/2015 at 18:36

Boston to Steele

Saad to Hodge

Opens up mid/fwd swing and still leaves me with 5 trades and 100k in the chest

Thoughts community??

    Brandon · 09/07/2015 at 19:38

    Sounds good Liam

Tim · 09/07/2015 at 18:53

What Premo defender should I bring in this week? Already have Taylor, Newnes, McDonald and Shaw

Nathan · 09/07/2015 at 19:15

Keep or trade cripps?

    Paul Walnuts · 09/07/2015 at 19:23

    i reckon he might be a late out tomorrow night, had an ankle injury last week and didn't play the last part of the game

      northernsoul74 · 10/07/2015 at 09:45

      Yeah keep an eye on teams. I have Cripps, Wallis and Sloane and one will become Rocky.

    @randomcliche · 10/07/2015 at 00:17

    Even if playing trade. Not going to avg 110.

Mitch · 09/07/2015 at 19:16

Out of Hamling, Boston, Mckenzie, Dumont

Which 1 should I cull to swap Steele into mids to pick up mckernan as ruck cover for Maric

Going for overall rank

9 trades and 120k left

Cheers community

    Tyler · 09/07/2015 at 19:22

    Dmac is the least likely to get a game from here on out

Tophawk · 09/07/2015 at 19:17

Who is wacking the V on Pendles tonight? Guy is in rare form at the moment.

Or are there others ahead of him?

    Liam · 09/07/2015 at 19:19

        Nice get, I'm going to put the VC on Priddis for a bit of a POD

    Dann · 09/07/2015 at 19:33

    Going Gray myself,

Chi Chi · 09/07/2015 at 19:18

Saad to Rance? I don't have much in the kitty and already have hodge, shaw, higgins, kolodjashnij, and simpson. Or hold for the week?

    Chi Chi · 09/07/2015 at 19:19

    P.S. Pearce on the bench can cover and I only have 11 trades left

    chi chi · 09/07/2015 at 19:27

    Scratch that, I Just looked at the tiger's run home

Tophawk · 09/07/2015 at 19:38

Anyone know how much longer Docherty will be out for? Also, A Saad likely to miss more than a week?

    Donavan · 09/07/2015 at 22:59

    Saad likely to be just the 1 week.

shaz · 09/07/2015 at 19:40

picken or b.murphy? or is there any1 else? i already have rance and hodge
thanks

    Dean · 09/07/2015 at 19:53

    Get Murphy mate because Picken will be tagging GAJ like a magnet.

      northernsoul74 · 10/07/2015 at 09:43

      Wallis could go to Ablett. Houli is another to look a.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 10/07/2015 at 11:56

    Get on thumper had an impressive last few weeks

      Dee · 10/07/2015 at 00:26

      hahaha…. another one of Jock's tips. loll…. Hopefully he gets a game soon, for your sake anyways…

    No issues here mate. Call your provider.

J_Drama · 09/07/2015 at 20:14

Thanks Lekdog. Keeping the dream alive!

Cripps or Rockliff… Who to put on the bench? Is Cripps still likely to have a sore ankle? And is Rockliff going to be sub?

    Tyler · 09/07/2015 at 21:00

    I doubt rocky will be the sub, seems like he's ready to go

    Tophawk · 09/07/2015 at 21:55

    Rockliff will NOT be the sub.

    Donavan · 09/07/2015 at 22:58

    With all of the rookie carnage around the midfield (Boston, Saad, Kavenaugh, etc) surely you can loophole and take Cripp's score if its huge tomorrow night).

      Sarah · 10/07/2015 at 11:00

      Agree. Put the 'E' on Cripps and see what he scores tonight.

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 10/07/2015 at 11:58

        That’s what I’m doing with Steele as the fall back if the extractor gets subbed

Already have, shaw, simpson, newnes, tmac, smith. I have lever as my D6 and hamling and a.pearce on my bench. D6 is my last upgrade for a full premo team with 6 trades left. Can afford anyone like hodge or murphy. Should I trade or should I wait till the rookies fatten up more. Would like your thoughts

Mitch · 09/07/2015 at 23:44

Hey community

A little help this week would be appreciated
Cracked in the top 1% and going for overall rank

Team is
Shaw newnes kolojasni murphy hodge smith hamling edwards
Fyfe pendles beams parker selwood shiel jpk cripps boston dumont mckenzie
Goldy maric cox
Gray dmartin swan goddard dahlhause edwards steele lambert

Maric is the concern this week. copping the donut wouldnt be ideal
And cripps would be my last upgrade in mids. Is carrying a ankle injury too sustained last game
Ive got 9 trades and 120k in chest

Would appreciate trade options and advice

Cheers!!

    judd0 · 10/07/2015 at 00:10

    If you trade Boston who has been dropped out. swing lambert into the mids. Bring in Mckernan ( can use him this week as R2 and in the future as F7) This opens up and Ruck/Fwd and Mid/Fwd swing sets for you also.
    Next week trade mckenzie down and cripps up and be full premo with 6 trades left. Sounds good to me

      judd0 · 10/07/2015 at 00:14

      Actually you have left it to late you will not be able to sub Cox to the FWD line. bugger there goes that idea.

        Mitch · 10/07/2015 at 07:39

        Gee whizz I wasn’t thinking about cox for pies lol

      @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 10/07/2015 at 10:24

      I'd suggest if you wanna trade McKenzie down, maybe do so to a non playing mid/def DPP player. keep the swing sets open between midfield and defence.

    @randomcliche · 10/07/2015 at 00:13

    General advice, commas rock. πŸ™‚ Trading advice, spend on an upgrade for M8. Looks pretty strong.

      Dee · 10/07/2015 at 00:28

      Why is everyone trading out Boston? He hasn't made us enough money yet…. could still get a game this week.

Dee · 10/07/2015 at 00:29

What's your rank Mitch?

    Mitch · 10/07/2015 at 07:38

KKP · 10/07/2015 at 08:49

I need some help please community

what are your thoughts on O'Brien from Bombers to generate some $$

    I N Pieman · 10/07/2015 at 09:21

    Playing this week & has been ok. Don’t expect him to play out the rest of the season. Make sure you have other cover like Steele

Locked and Loaded · 10/07/2015 at 09:08

Doherty OUT again has stuffed me big time. Have 6 trades left and have two defensive zeros in Saad and Doch. Worth trading one and only having 5 trades left or ride my luck and if I lose I lose in a decent position in league and in top 2% overall?? Tough friggen times

    I N Pieman · 10/07/2015 at 09:23

    Saad listed as a groin. No idea when he’s back. Not much spend to get to rance

      Locked and Loaded · 10/07/2015 at 10:02

      Cheers Pieman… Edwards is now in for the Bombers so have some cover. Saad to Rance gives me a full team. The ups and downs of SC

        I N Pieman · 10/07/2015 at 10:30

        No worries mate. There are so many ups & downs. Just got to ride them

Tulendeena · 10/07/2015 at 09:26

Is Edwards likely to get another game?

Or have I got another disappearing act alongside Lamb and Glenn?

    Mac · 10/07/2015 at 09:44

    Edwards is a late in.

      Tulendeena · 10/07/2015 at 20:21

      my mind is full on blown

Mac · 10/07/2015 at 09:44

Please what trades should I be making if any? 10 trades and 130 k in the bank.

Shaw, Simpson, Hodge, Gibson, Murphy, Newnes, Pearce, Hamling
Fyfe, Priddis, Beams, JPK, Parker, Selwood, Treloar, Rockliff, Dumont, Steele, Lambert
Goldstein, Maric, Read
Gray, Martin, Swan, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Lonie, McLean, Goddard.

Was originally trading Read to Brooksby but Brooksbyt got dropped and am now unsure on what trades to make. Was thinking maybe Dumont to O'Brien (ESS) and Lonie to Zorko, but then have no bench cover for Maric

    I N Pieman · 10/07/2015 at 09:55

    McLean to Mckernan & swing read to cover Maric

      Mac · 10/07/2015 at 09:58

      Yes Pieman, just about McKernan, will that mean he will be my f6 for the rest of the year? Or will I need to generate enough cash to get a decent f6 and have McKernan as f7/r3?

        I N Pieman · 10/07/2015 at 10:05

        Id still upgrade Lonie. Perhaps consider dumont to Maynard for the mid/def link & send Lonie up to best available

          Mac · 10/07/2015 at 10:24

          The thing is, I was hoping to also bring in Gaz next week for Selwood if he doesn't perform. That means if I do McLean to McKernan, this week, I won't be able to downgrade Dumont to Maynard becuase he already played. I was thinking of O'Brien from Essendon. That means next week I'll have 129k in the bank. This means I could upgrade Selwood to Ablett and maybe downgrade Alex Pearce to another rookie. The week after that I will upgrade Lonie? Is this a good plan?

            tom · 10/07/2015 at 10:27

            Ablett may not be ready next week. Just saying that may change your plan?

            I N Pieman · 10/07/2015 at 10:29

            Getting GARY by whatever means is a great plan. I’m probably grabbing him today

              tom · 10/07/2015 at 10:35

              Well is it worth getting McKernan? You don't have cover but its only 1 week. I agree with Pieman and getting Ablett is a must. But is McKernan really worth it? You could trade Read to a rookie ruck getting a game this week?

                MAc · 10/07/2015 at 11:04

                Pieman what you think?

                  I N Pieman · 10/07/2015 at 13:17

                  I think Mckernan is very handy cover. I’m sure he will come in handy later in as well

                    Mac · 10/07/2015 at 13:25

                    So what trades this week and next week would you make? I appreciate your help Pieman!

                    I N Pieman · 10/07/2015 at 15:23

                    Well I have Sloane & Cripps. I am downgrading Sloane to O'Brien probably & turning Cripps into Gaz. Then with the surplus cash I'm turning Lonie into Goddard to have as a spare premo for Mid/Fwd cover. Happy to help where I can. I'd love to get McKernan but it just doesn't come at a good time for me

                    Mac · 10/07/2015 at 17:18

                    So you think I should go Mclean and Dumont to Mckernan and obrien. then next week go selwood to gaz and downgrade someone else to the week after i can bring in a fwd premo?

                    I N Pieman · 10/07/2015 at 19:13

                    Just keep in mind as well that it could soon cost than 100k to go Lonie to Goddard

tom · 10/07/2015 at 10:01

Is Martin a good VC option?

    The doch · 10/07/2015 at 10:04

    Goldstein if you have him

Big G · 10/07/2015 at 10:01

I am desperate for a win in my league this week and have a few trades up my sleeve. Is trading out Saad for Malceski totally ridiculous or should I take a doughnut. Surely someone of his caliber can at least average 60-70 for the remainder of the year. Any other options – McGovern, Bruce, Vlaustin??

    I N Pieman · 10/07/2015 at 10:08

    It’s not ridiculous if your avoiding donuts. Saad has a groin injury & there’s no guarantee he will play next week

      @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 10/07/2015 at 10:26

      but then again, are you happy with copping a 60-70 average from a bloke in your top 6 defenders?

        Big G · 10/07/2015 at 11:49

        Edwards a late in. Problem solved.

The doch · 10/07/2015 at 10:03

Does anyone know how long sam docherty is out for ? I have full premo team and 9 trades

Hold or trade him ?

    I N Pieman · 10/07/2015 at 10:09

    9 trades & full Premo is a healthy position. If I was you I’d trade him

      The doch · 10/07/2015 at 10:11

      Full premium but i still have josh to gibson to hopfully get rid of too
      Is murphy a good pick for him ? Or kade simpson ?

        The doch · 10/07/2015 at 10:13

        *josh gibson

        I N Pieman · 10/07/2015 at 10:14

        Id hang onto gibson. Lots of people traded wines yesterday & today they will be feeling sick

          The doch · 10/07/2015 at 10:16

          Haha i was one that was going to lucky i hung tough

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 10/07/2015 at 12:04

          Not sure why? Gotta lot of man love for fine wines locked into my mids. Grew again last night was super impressive in 1st qtr. Can and does go big all u need from a M8.

tom · 10/07/2015 at 10:41

McLean to Daniel and Dumont to O'Brien then next week bringing in premo forward and Gazza?

    Mac · 10/07/2015 at 11:10

    Sounds like a good trade. Anything to get Gazza in quicker works. The only thing with Daniel is I'm hoping he doen't get the snot vest again, I don't believe he will but maybe the Bulldogs like his energy off the bench as the sub. For Supercoachers, we hope not.

Nick · 10/07/2015 at 10:58

do we hold saad or trade him out
should i go boston-obrien saad-hodge

    Tofor · 10/07/2015 at 15:15

    I'm holding him for the time being, throwing him on the bench… I actually think he's good value especially with DEF/MID swingset..
    He is generally a good lock for 80-90.

Locked and Loaded · 10/07/2015 at 11:15

Rampe OR Birchall??

    Tyler · 10/07/2015 at 11:26

    rampe but i would rather neither

    Tofor · 10/07/2015 at 15:19

    Agreed with Tyler.

    murray · 10/07/2015 at 15:24

    neither

Babo · 10/07/2015 at 11:28

Unsure what to do with Saad and Hamling as well. I have Beasley as cover. Is that enough? Should I trade in a premo. Saad is my D6.

Got Shaw Picken Newnes Simpson Smith.

    Tyler · 10/07/2015 at 11:42

    I would wait till after the round is finished and if they aren't playing next week downgrade one and upgrade the other

    Tofor · 10/07/2015 at 15:19

    Would hold both for now.
    Both should come back and get games. I reckon Saad is adequate as D6, certainly as D7.

Matthew · 10/07/2015 at 11:31

Bit stuck on what I should do this week community. Any help would be appreciated. My team is as follows:

DEF: Shaw, Houli, Murphy, Newnes, Hodge, Taylor (Hamling, Pearce)
MID: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Beams, Neale, Dangerfield, Kennedy, Parker, Cripps (Boston, McKenzie, Neal-Bullen)
RUCK: Goldstein, Gawn (Martin)
FOR: Gray, Swan, Goddard, Franklin, Lonie, Steele (Dale, Read)

2 players off full premo, but only 6 trades and 92k left. When Stef Martin is back, Gawn will be swung into FWD to become F6. This leaves me with 1 more mid and 1 more fwd to upgrade. Cripps will likely become Ablett. Thanks in advance.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 10/07/2015 at 12:07

    Fairly decent not much to do except fwd line. Look to get dusty in down the track.

    Dean · 10/07/2015 at 15:36

    I agree Dusty a must have in forward.

tommy · 10/07/2015 at 12:13

Is o'brien from essendon a good option?

    SideBySidebottom · 10/07/2015 at 17:38

    There are no good options from Essendon.

Moonman · 10/07/2015 at 12:18

Hi Community! Here's my current team. What changes would you make? 9 Trades $270k in the bank

DEF: McDonald / Gibson / Birchall / Smith / Hibberd / Saad (Hamling / Lever)
MID: Fyfe / Pendles / Mundy / JPK / Lewis / Shiel / Wallis / Cripps (Steele / Boston / Maynard)
RUC: Goldy / Nic Nat (Cox)
FWD: Gray / Swan / Martin / Titch / Bont / Edwards (Lambert / Lamb)

With Saad out I've swung Maynard to def bench and lever on the ground with Saad going to the bench in the mids.

    Wattsieesq · 10/07/2015 at 15:45

    I'd be looking to trade Saad to a Shaw or Hodge, then either Wallis or Cripps to a fallen premo.

      Moonman · 10/07/2015 at 16:03

      Only issue I have with that is that Saad has been my most consistent defender lately and has DPP… I've held Smith from the start and he is killing me and the rest have had the odd good game but too many poor games. Even Tmac has been down of late!

        Wattsieesq · 10/07/2015 at 17:16

        Golden rule of SC is to back your premos. Hodge has DPP like Saad and Saad is out. I got rid of him this week and brought in Murphy as I have Hodge and Shaw. Ultimately, its up to you. Go with your gut.

    Dean · 10/07/2015 at 17:16

    Moonman fix your midfield first and for most Cripps & Wallis out then Priddis & Dangerfield in. Your mid will then be awesome.

    Defence is your last priority mate. I keep saying it, look at the top 4 ranked players, 3 of them still have both Saad & Oxley

    As you stated, McDonald is currently the highest scoring defender but he has only averaged 78 in his past 6 games.
    I'm keeping Saad, fix your midfield first, then maybe consider bringing in Hodge next week or the week after, he will drop in price anyway this week.

    Dean · 10/07/2015 at 17:20

    Moonman, if I were you mate I would take Maynards 66 in defence, I wouldn't risk playing Lever mate.

Gary · 10/07/2015 at 13:32

do u reckon Mckernan could stay at f6 for the rest of the year

    northernsoul74 · 10/07/2015 at 14:47

    No. I've got Gawn (cover for Stef Martin last 2 weeks) and I expect him to end up F7 and security for any further ruck outs. McKernan should be used the same in my opinion.

    Tofor · 10/07/2015 at 15:18

    Probably not.

    Tyler · 10/07/2015 at 16:45

    If he can average 90+ for the rest of the year

brook · 10/07/2015 at 14:34

Which MID to replace Cripps for $510 or under:

JPK, Shiel, Lewis or Rocky?

    I N Pieman · 10/07/2015 at 15:28

    JPK or Rocky. But I'd choose Rocky. He can go massive often

    Dean · 10/07/2015 at 15:36

    JPK without a doubt

      Wattsieesq · 10/07/2015 at 15:46

      JPK, Rocky, Shiel and Lewis in that order.

    wise old man · 10/07/2015 at 16:21

    Steele Sidebottom

    brook · 10/07/2015 at 17:48

    think i will go jpk … thanks for advice … had rocky already this yr

Maddog · 10/07/2015 at 15:06

Is Rocky going to be the big in that everyone is hoping for or is he going to have another 2nd game back injury?

    Tofor · 10/07/2015 at 15:17

    Yeah, I'm scared. Bought him in after his last injury… and that didn't work out so well.
    There's other options right now.

    northernsoul74 · 10/07/2015 at 15:26

    Always a risk but he's had 6 weeks to recover which is much longer than the first time. They wouldn't play him if he wasn't recovered. A rib injury could happen to anyone. In saying that I don't see the rush in getting him in this week.

      Tyler · 10/07/2015 at 15:30

      The only problem with not bringing him in is that he has a low breakeven and could rise up to 50k if he has a good game

        Maddog · 10/07/2015 at 15:34

        Yeah one big score and he's back up over 500K… Don't want to miss the boat!

          Wattsieesq · 10/07/2015 at 15:47

          I've held him but if I didn't have him, I'd be reluctant to bring him in straight away.

    Dean · 10/07/2015 at 17:00

    Brought him in last time, it wouldn't surprise me at all if he ends up sore again. 6 weeks isn't enough time for mine after breaking rib's then re-fracturing them again. His opposition knows all this and will target his body so he wont get it easy.

    I'm staying clear away from him. Once bitten twice shy.

Rooboy · 10/07/2015 at 15:09

Cripps and Wallis for which midfield guns?
Can afford anyone…

    I N Pieman · 10/07/2015 at 15:26

    If you have the funds Gaz & Rocky no doubt

      Rooboy · 10/07/2015 at 15:38

      Have 267k in the bank so can afford almost any combination… Have Fyfe, Pendlebury, JPK, Lewis, Mundy and Shiel already.
      Was thinking going Rocky and another mid 500k like Armitage then going Shiel or Lewis to Ablett next week?

    northernsoul74 · 10/07/2015 at 15:28

    No idea who you already have.

    Dean · 10/07/2015 at 17:06

    Priddis & Dangerfield for sure, you want the best midfield money can buy you.

MAtty · 10/07/2015 at 15:12

Will Hodge be rested close to finals?

    Tofor · 10/07/2015 at 15:18

    Seriously doubt it right now…
    As a Hawks member, I would expect us to be tussling for spots in that top 4 area by then.
    Hodge has looked remarkably fit this year, and already missed a few games with suspensions.

    northernsoul74 · 10/07/2015 at 15:32

    He's already missed a few and Hawks need to keep challenging for top 4 so should be fine.

    Youngy · 10/07/2015 at 18:39

    Wouldn't think so, Hawks wanna get up higher in the ladder it would be to risky for them to rest there good players

Dave2008 · 10/07/2015 at 15:21

Like a lot of people selection and injuries have screwed my trsde plans for the next few weeks. I was going to go McClean to Steele and Cripps (be 129?) to Armitage (be 57?) Then next week CEY to Sidebottom and Tarrant to Daniel then Saad to Hodge and possibly Griffen to Ablett.

However with Hamling Saad and McKenzie all out i have a donut in defence. I am going for league with 95k and 13 trades. Only have to win one more game to gyarantee top 4 and will probably lose with a 0 this week but could be close.

Team
D Shaw Simpson Newness Gibson Houli Saad Hamling McKenzie
M Fyfe Pendles Treloar Lewis Kennedy Parker Griffen Cripps EOY Krak Boston
R Goldy Nic Nat
F Martin Goddard Dalihaus Swan Mitchell Tarrant Clark McClean
So either:

McClean to Steele Saad to Hodge (be 135)
Cripps to Steele Hamling to Hodge

Hodge has a high be but i want him in my final team so unless i go to my def cover like B Smith this week to avoid the 0

    Tyler · 10/07/2015 at 15:34

    I would trade out cripps and mckenzie and trade in steele and hodge if you can

      Dave2008 · 10/07/2015 at 15:47

      That actually sounds like the best idea as Hamling is probably a better chance to return?

        dave2008 · 10/07/2015 at 16:07

        The only other way around the outs would be to not get Steele and still get Armitage and a defender but Steele seems like a must have as the outstanding rookie at the moment.

Dean · 10/07/2015 at 15:56

I currently have Lever & A Pearce in my defence because Saad is out and I want to keep him.

Forward line I will hope Lambert scores well and if so I'll put Murphy in my defence. I just dont see any real forwards that really stick out, I would consider getting Goddard in my side in next week or the following week coz he will be around $400k by then but only if the team actually tries to play otherwise it's no point.
Other then that I quite like Gunston for only $421,000 he hasn't done much wrong and is extremely consistent with scores of:- 70-101-100-91-135-96-98-91-113-86-22-108-86 and a average of 92 if you take his 22 out which is his only bad game his average jumps to 97.5

The last thing I want is to spend $580k on Deledio. Right now im not sure if I should bring in Murphy in Defence or Gunstan, hoping Lambert scores 70+ and that will make my mind up.

My forward line is:- Gray, Martin, Dahlhaus, Swan, S Edwards

HallOfFamer · 10/07/2015 at 15:56

Is Rance a good defensive option at his price? Need a cheap defender to avoid a donut this week and already have B.Smith
Thanks

    dave2008 · 10/07/2015 at 16:15

    I was thinking the same but I still dont trust him as he can pull out a 50. Tempting price but Im also not sure of the other options.

    Dean · 10/07/2015 at 16:50

    When you say cheap what's the most you can spend? Having Smith is enough regarding rolling the dice with cheap defenders.

    Can you bring in Murphy? If not id go Gibson before I went Rance.

      HallOfFamer · 10/07/2015 at 16:56

      I can afford any defender but to avoid the donut I'm trading wallis via Mckenzie swing and would prefer to go cheap so I can go Hamling to a fallen mid premo such as rockliff next week, I'd pick Gibbo as well if frawley was playing but I'm not sure how much longer he is out for.

Son of Jock · 10/07/2015 at 16:17

what to do with Bennel? current forwards are Gray Martin Swan Mitchell Bont (Steele Dale)

full promo mid and def aswell

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 10/07/2015 at 16:22

    wait a week. reckon he might play next week

      Locked and Loaded · 10/07/2015 at 16:41

      Play Steele. Harley 'Davidson' Bennell will come back roaring

Matt · 10/07/2015 at 16:34

Trading Cripps which gives me 719k to spend on any mid. Who will it be? Already have Fyfe, Pendles, Danger, Beama, JPK, Parker and Neale.

    Locked and Loaded · 10/07/2015 at 16:39

    Priddis, Armitage, Parker, or slightly different Cotchin, Macrae

      Donavan · 10/07/2015 at 17:09

      Shiel, Ablett & M.Murphy also worth a look. Ablett will be cheaper in coming weeks, so you may be best holding off, by then Rockliff may also be worth a look.

    Matt · 10/07/2015 at 17:27

    Ended up getting Armo. 65 BE is irresitable. If Gaz ends up averaging 120+ I can sideways Neale to him.

Locked and Loaded · 10/07/2015 at 16:37

Most indecisive week yet I hope me posting my issues has answered questions for others haha. Use 2 trades to get Hodge in or 1 to get Rance in. Full premo and will have either 4 or 5 trades left depending on which way I go????

Simon · 10/07/2015 at 17:08

I'm looking to make one trade this week. Should I downgrade Van Berlo or Boston. I was thinking of Boston (to Lambert or Daniel – already have Steele) so I can keep Van Berlo and upgrade him to Ablett or another premium midfielder in the next couple of weeks once his price has dropped. Other option is to trade out Dale but he hasn't made much cash and I don't know who I could bring him in for other than Daniel. Thoughts?

    Derek · 10/07/2015 at 18:44

    Make a shark move and get Gaz this week

Baggy Pants · 10/07/2015 at 17:11

Does anyone know when they announce the final teams for the Sunday games

    Baggy Pants · 10/07/2015 at 17:13

    Looks like they have just been updated thanks anyway

Donavan · 10/07/2015 at 17:35

Community, I am battling in a money league (currently 6th, with a few tough match-up's in the next 3 weeks).

Please advise when my focus should be in making my team better.

Def – Shaw / Houli / Ibbotson / Hibberd / Simpson / Smith (Saad / Hamling)
Mids – Fyfe / Pendlebury / Priddis / Shiel / JPK / M.Murphy / Selwood / Lewis (Steele / Boston / Glenn)
Rucks – Goldstein / Kreuzer (Cox)
Fwd – Gray / Goddard / Gunston / Franklin / Motlop / Hogan (Lonie / Dale)

I have 8 trades & $105,300 in the bank.

My thinking is downgrade Lonie & upgrade Hogan next week, just need a suitable rookie downgrade to appear. Please advise which are good downgrade and upgrade fwd targets.

I have rolled the dice on Kreuzer, but I have seen each of his matches this season, and he is worth the gamble i think.

Thanks in advance.

    Dean · 10/07/2015 at 18:22

    Caleb daniel had his first game for the dogs last week and was the SUB yet he scored 65 in half a game. He looked very impressive and he will not get the snot vest any time soon if he plays like he did last week. So Lonie to Caleb is your downgrade.

    Upgrade Hogan to Martin and that should still leave you with $72,400 in the war chest. Then maybe consider going Smith to McDonald next week mate..

      Donavan · 10/07/2015 at 18:46

      Thanks Dean,

      Like the – OUT – Lonie & Hogan IN – Daniel & Martin trades, I have already traded this week, so I will do those next week, works well as Hogan & Lonie will both go up in value, and Martin will come down, plus gives an extra week to see Caleb Daniel.

      Thinking after that I may upgrade Saad (instead of Smith). I havent been impressed with McDonald of recent weeks, so with the changes in the values of Hogan, Lonie & Martin this week, I should have around enough to get Bob Murphy the week after next.

      Thanks for your help.

Tony · 10/07/2015 at 18:45

Naitanui or Blicavs to upgrade R2????

    Tyler · 10/07/2015 at 19:26

    nic nat

Tophawk · 10/07/2015 at 19:00

Will Dustin Martin get the Curnow tag again tonight? I think Ed was on him in round one and Dusty spudded big time.

Not happy with Pendles VC score of 96. I would normally just go back to Fyfe, but I am worried about his output against Hawthorn on Sunday at Aurora stadium. (Tassie) I think the weather is also going to be very ordinary down there.

Any thoughts?

dannyyboyy · 10/07/2015 at 19:18

gonna bring in mckernan and steele this week. which 2 to trade out of mitch clark, salem and tarrant. tarrant might go down a touch, but i bank a bit more cash with salem and clark. thoughts?

    Dean · 10/07/2015 at 22:30

    my thought is why the hell did you still have Salem?

Tyler · 10/07/2015 at 19:46

Tyler · 10/07/2015 at 20:53

Geez Rance over 100 sc points and it's not even half time

    Paul Walnuts · 10/07/2015 at 20:58

    105 at 1/2 time, happy i traded Saad for him with 2 minutes before the game started

      CoachDamo · 10/07/2015 at 23:55

      I was tossing up between Rance and Houli – I went Houli. Devastating!

        Same · 11/07/2015 at 17:57

        same!

Billo · 11/07/2015 at 05:51

Where's Chicko's Check In this weekend guys?

    Tyler · 11/07/2015 at 08:03

    You mean Patches Panic Room? Yeah I don't know

I N Pieman · 11/07/2015 at 07:58

I suggested Rance to a few people yesterday to replace saad. Wish I’d gotten him. Massive score

    PDAP · 11/07/2015 at 10:24

    What a dope!

Mac · 11/07/2015 at 09:19

This week going McLean and Dumont to McKernan and O'Brien.
Next week will go Alex Pearce to rookie then either Selwood to Gaz, or Lonie to premo forward.
Thoughts?

    Luviboy1 · 11/07/2015 at 12:16

    Sounds good. What I plan to do with Lonie next week too.

Aaron · 11/07/2015 at 11:21

Ibbotson or Bob Murphy?

    Luviboy1 · 11/07/2015 at 11:48

    Bob Murphy. Like the Doggies run home.

Stevo · 11/07/2015 at 11:41

Who should get the C out of Goldy, Danger, Armo, Beams and Fyfe?

    Baggy Pants · 11/07/2015 at 13:02

    I'm thinking Goldy under cover at Etihad, no chance of rain effected match, I have Danger, Fyfe, Beams and Pridis but dont feel comfortable with either the Tassie game or the Crows game.

I N Pieman · 11/07/2015 at 12:37

Have traded in Gaz. Hope he kicks ass!

    Derek · 11/07/2015 at 12:44

    Shark move!

      I N Pieman · 11/07/2015 at 13:18

      Sure is Derek. Role the dice

        Krazee-Eyez Killa · 11/07/2015 at 22:30

        Nailed it

    SideBySidebottom · 11/07/2015 at 13:09

    Not sure whether to take Sidebottom's 122 or take a risk with Gaz as captain.

      I N Pieman · 11/07/2015 at 13:26

      Tough call sidebum. Back Gaz

        Derek · 11/07/2015 at 14:05

        Go Gaz!

          SideBySidebottom · 11/07/2015 at 14:11

          Thanks for your effort Steele but it's Gaz for the C.

Bangers APLNG · 11/07/2015 at 13:05

Anyone heard Sandilands is out??????

    I N Pieman · 11/07/2015 at 13:28

    Would you trust Ross Lyon?

Derek · 11/07/2015 at 14:04

VC priddis or Goldy?

    Youngy · 11/07/2015 at 14:57

    Goldy, that's where my VC is going

    @mysterycannon · 11/07/2015 at 16:43

    I'm on Goldy too. He loves playing Geelong at the best of times. Also, Blicavs doesn't offer as much competition as true primary ruckman would

Mac · 11/07/2015 at 14:50

The week I bring in McKernan, he is spudding it up. Thanks heaps McKernan!

Tyler · 11/07/2015 at 15:21

Thank God for Tmac getting back some of his form!

    Nuggety · 11/07/2015 at 16:22

    Couldn’t agree more, lucky enough to have Gawn too, gave mckernan an absolute lesson!

    Donavan · 11/07/2015 at 16:25

    Yeah, traded him out this week…..damn

@mysterycannon · 11/07/2015 at 16:45

Made late call on choosing Picken over Hodge as defensive upgrade. Only in 4% teams and think might get Hodge cheaper in a few weeks if Smith doesn't pull his finger out by then. Fingers crossed Picken can keep his form up…

Liam · 11/07/2015 at 17:14

Fyfe or Goldy as C

Mac · 11/07/2015 at 18:06

Ablett is back! Well we already knew that but watch him jump in ownership next week!

luke · 11/07/2015 at 18:19

Take cripps 88 or risk motlop on ground? Going for overall

    luke · 11/07/2015 at 19:57

    Decided to go motlop. 2 supercoach points at quarter time lol.

dognino · 11/07/2015 at 18:19

Stuck on C choice this week. Had the VC on Pendles, because I didn't last week and Fyfe lost me my match by 20 points, just needed him to ton up.

Anyways have a choice of Fyfe, Parker, beams, buddy and hodge. Gut feel that buddy might have something to prove this week, and lions have no real defenders to run with him.

What's everyone else thinking

    Mac · 11/07/2015 at 18:21

    I've got the VC on Goldy. Ross Lyon tends to have Fyfe play forward quite a lot of the time against quality opposition so Freo can actually kick a decent score. Hodge loves the contest, and he will get plenty of it against the Dockers, but it is hard to go past Buddy with no real notable defender. Could kick 10.

      Paul Walnuts · 11/07/2015 at 19:48

      Yeah mew the same, I'm tossing up between Buddy,Parker & JPK, currently have the C on JPK but that could change

Mac · 11/07/2015 at 18:24

Harvey sub, that hurts anyone who has him. I was lucky enough not to get him, even though his price and run home looked so tempting.

Demon · 11/07/2015 at 19:14

ok we have a new clubhouse leader for most wtf score of the year.
Lynden Dunn 4 kicks, 3 handballs, 5 tackles, 0 marks = 91 supercoach…

Champion Data must have had him on alex rance settings for the game

    @mysterycannon · 11/07/2015 at 22:41

    That's crazy

    6 effective possesions (assume 4 kicks & 2 HBs), 5 tackles… maybe give him 50.
    1 hitout… assume to advantage. another 5 there.
    13 1%er… no idea but guessing these must pay big if happened at end of close game.

    I'd love to see the breakdown from Champion Data…. 91 still looks very high!

Poloko48 · 11/07/2015 at 20:33

You would think having played SC for 5 years now I'd have eliminated any stupid rookie mistakes.
Then I go and put Maric on field as C to get Swans' VC score, and forget to put the E on McKernan…
69pts down the drain….story of my year really.

Jeff · 11/07/2015 at 21:21

Should I put the C on Beams, Buddy, Parker or Fyfe

    Swans2012 · 11/07/2015 at 23:11

    Fyfe still most reliable

Tyler · 11/07/2015 at 22:13

Brodie Smith on the up?

    dognino · 11/07/2015 at 22:40

    Only if you're looking at his 5 round average, scored another sub 70, he's my worst player and I've had him from the start. Time to go next week. Spewing I traded newnes instead of smith just before newnes came good an smith got terrible.

    Bog Rat · 11/07/2015 at 23:48

    Broadly Smith on the way out

Krazee-Eyez Killa · 11/07/2015 at 22:28

Gotta take Goldy’s 140 for the captain score right?

    @mysterycannon · 11/07/2015 at 22:42

    Scaled to 145…. absolutely take it!

    Jeff · 11/07/2015 at 22:53

    Yes Yes Yes and Yes

Dean · 11/07/2015 at 22:34

This week will be huge scores, par will be around 2400 to 2500 this week… In my league the lowest projection score is 2330, most of the others are 2400+

    Derek · 12/07/2015 at 00:16

    I’m against a player who is projected 2670. He his going massive

carlashirley90 · 11/07/2015 at 22:51

1574 from 12 players Goldy my Captain

Treloar, D.Smith, Shaw, Hodge, Fyfe, Beams, Zorko, Hannebery, JPK, Franklin to come

    Swans2012 · 11/07/2015 at 23:10

    Gee that looks big! I’m 1774 from 15 including dangers vc and gawns emg loophole….hodge shaw Fyfe rocky beams newnes and t Mitch to come…be 60 more if I’d played Higgins instead of Ziebell damit!

    @mysterycannon · 11/07/2015 at 23:19

    Wow. Great scoring.

    I'm 1588 with 8 left… Shaw, Griffen, Neale, Fyfe, Beams, JPK, Parker & Titch. Hoping to push high 2400's if no carnage from the gods tomorrow.

Swans2012 · 11/07/2015 at 22:52

Gawn at f7 goes big leaving me having to choose who
To play out of Ziebell and Higgins… Of course I chose Ziebell damit, 62 instead of 121…. Hmmmmmm…cant wait to send Higgins back down back as part of this weeks gary trade….

    Swans2012 · 11/07/2015 at 22:54

    On a positive vc danger! Love that…

      Derek · 12/07/2015 at 00:18

      You’re having a good week.

      I’ve had a few sub standard scores this week.

        Swans2012 · 12/07/2015 at 08:32

        I need to after last weeks disaster! Still had Ziebell, dusty Jacobs and smiths 60’s but been lucky enough to have Gawn, nicnat, danger, wines and t Mac etc going big to counter it

carlashirley90 · 11/07/2015 at 23:02

1574 fram 12 players Goldy my Captain

    carlashirley90 · 11/07/2015 at 23:03

    My bad posted again by auto lol

@mysterycannon · 11/07/2015 at 23:20

Reckon we'll might get towards 2700 claiming the top prize this week…

@mysterycannon · 11/07/2015 at 23:29

Wow… one of my leagues has a guy on 2112 with Treloar, Ward, Fyfe, Gibson and Titch still to come.

Glorin · 12/07/2015 at 00:41

Should I pick up Zorko or tmitch this week for final fwd spot or wait 2 weeks for a Goddard or bartel.

    Billo · 12/07/2015 at 03:23

    I'm saving my last spot for Bartel.

      Glorin · 12/07/2015 at 09:33

      That has been my thinking and have banked on him dropping to around d $420k ish. With gaj not going to drop as much as hoped it may be a bit tighter than I planned!

    SideBySidebottom · 12/07/2015 at 13:12

    Bartel.

mick · 12/07/2015 at 00:50

Hi guys super important question re cap. loophole: I want to take Danger's 150 as I had VC on him. In backline, I put a non-playing player on field (say McKenzie, as captain) but accidentally have two emergencies – say Hodge and Hamling (who didn't play this week). After Saints and Hawks games do I get Hodge's score for McKenzie or Hamling's non-playing zero as my score? please help. cheers

    Kev · 12/07/2015 at 08:58

    faq section mate –
    "Where there are 2 emergencies are selected in one position and only one of these is required, the lowest scoring emergency will be used."
    "Emergencies scoring 0 will not be considered the 'lowest-scoring' and will not be used."

    Why do you have Hodge on the pine though?!

      Tyler · 12/07/2015 at 09:28

      I think he put Mckenzie on for hodge, made mckenzie the cap, but then realised he already has hamling as an emergency

Tony · 12/07/2015 at 08:17

Hi Guys. Does anybody have an idea what GAZ's price will be after his 153 this week??? B/e was 196

    I N Pieman · 12/07/2015 at 08:23

    About 665k. Shoukd drop just over 20k. Glad I already have him & the vc on this weeks score

      Swans2012 · 12/07/2015 at 08:48

      Nice work pieman, Gazza is on my radar for this week although with Hamling and Boston not playing and Gazza playing a blinder it’s going to be borderline whether I can afford to get to him!

        I N Pieman · 12/07/2015 at 08:54

        Good luck with the heist swans. I think most won’t be able to get him. But it’s going to be funny seeing the names thrown up this week to make way for him

          Swans2012 · 12/07/2015 at 09:05

          Yep going to be a pile of wasted trades in there, I have refused to sideways all year and I’m not going to start now, got 250k and 2 trades set aside in the Gary fund but even then might have to wait a week for lever to go up again to get there… We’ll see though might just be able to get there with a Boston down lever up via a multitude of positional swings…

            TRIGGER HAPPY · 13/07/2015 at 10:31

            Thanking cripps for his service and going up to abs Dumont down to Maynard opens Def mid swing. $140k in the kitty – just made it.

    Kev · 12/07/2015 at 08:54

    Was so bloody loyal to Gaz all through preseason, stubborn even. Would have to take apart my team now to get him in. Sums up my year really.

      I N Pieman · 12/07/2015 at 09:00

      I think just about everyone will be in the same boat Kev. Most will need to raise 200k odd to turn a spud mid into Gaz. And it costs 2 trades which at this time of year is tough

        Glorin · 12/07/2015 at 09:20

        It's all about planning for the inevitable! Left my last mid spot open for him and have sloane and $220k to make the single trade this week if situation suits. Even if he didnt come good I could have then traded in whoever with cash left over. Was hoping he would be closer to $650k though!

Tony · 12/07/2015 at 08:31

Thanks for that Pieman. I nearly brought GAZ in this week so hopefully I can get him next week – I need his price to drop 21400 though to be able to get him in with my preferred trades

    I N Pieman · 12/07/2015 at 08:42

    I think the majority was hoping he would drop to low 6’s. Can’t see it happening anytime soon. Id say most won’t be able to get him. So he’s an awesome pod. Good luck with your acquisition Tony

      Derek · 12/07/2015 at 08:54

      I need a combination of Gaz dropping and Griffin increasing, of $48k. I’ll be be happy with that trade next week.

        I N Pieman · 12/07/2015 at 09:14

        Grif to Gaz sounds awesome Derek. Needless to say I lost patience with griffen a few weeks ago. Turned him into JPK. Happy with him

Luviboy1 · 12/07/2015 at 09:21

What is par this week community? Im looking at around 2400-2500.

    I N Pieman · 12/07/2015 at 09:37

    About that Id say. Some monster scores this week

    Tyler · 12/07/2015 at 10:09

    I'm looking at around 2300. Gotta love it when ebert, dusty, houli and smith all get under 70

      Tyler · 12/07/2015 at 10:10

      And not to mention motlop

luke · 12/07/2015 at 09:24

Massive error this week. Goldy vc but completely forgot about having a loophole thanks to the last 4 weeks haha.
Probably my 2nd worse decision of the year in putting motlop on ground last night chasing higher points than cripps 88. Not only did motlop spud it up big time, it also means I have no good way to get goldys vc score.

Option 1: put rockliff or jpk on the bench, McKenzie on ground and take cripps 88.
Option 2: hope that fyfe bounces back this week and goes big against hawthorn like Pendles did.

Leaning toward option 2. Oh, and worse decision was reverse trading rich to priddis in round 7 and he goes bang with 196 and hasn't dropped below 100 since. Ranked 360th overall, what could have been haha

    Tyler · 12/07/2015 at 09:32

    Yeah, motlop will go back to his usual scores now that bartel is back in. And yeah, I would definitely go option 2

    I N Pieman · 12/07/2015 at 09:40

    Id back Fyfe Luke

    Youngy · 12/07/2015 at 09:47

    Fyfe is Life!

      Swans2012 · 12/07/2015 at 09:58

      +1 for fyfe

    SideBySidebottom · 12/07/2015 at 13:23

    I'd agree with option two. I think your psychiatrist is more qualified to comment on option one.

Tyler · 12/07/2015 at 10:13

Is it worth getting gaz in but still being 1 off full premo or should I fill that last spot and not get gaz in.

    Swans2012 · 12/07/2015 at 11:07

    Depends on your trade situation, if you’ve got plenty of trades the sure, if not maybe reconsider….

      SideBySidebottom · 12/07/2015 at 13:35

      It also depends on your projections. A rookie and Gaz at 90 + 130 = 2 premiums at 110.

    @mysterycannon · 12/07/2015 at 18:40

    Depends on who your last non-premo is…. if it's a Cripps type you could get away with it. If it's Lambert however… not so much πŸ™‚

      Tyler · 12/07/2015 at 19:08

      Probably steele

Antonio · 12/07/2015 at 10:15

2003 with 6 to go

Youngy · 12/07/2015 at 10:54

A guy I'm playing in leagues is 1622 off 13 players with Captain yet to play…

    I N Pieman · 12/07/2015 at 12:35

    That’s some seriously healthy scoring. Coukd crack 3k

Cliffy · 12/07/2015 at 13:35

Hey guys, need your assistance, I'm a little behind against my opponents in my leagues (between 100 – 150 for most of them on average) with 4 out of 5 having Fyfe as Captain, and additionally most of my opponents have 1 or 2 more guys to play than me (in unique players). So, I might have to roll the dice with a unique captain with choices of JPK, Hannebery, Hodge as my main options at this stage.

What do you guys reckon, worth taking a risk with a different Captain out of the players I've listed (Option A) or sticking fat with Fyfe as C? (Option B)

No matter what happens this round, I shouldn't lose Top 4 for most of my leagues, probably one league at this stage.

    Cliffy · 12/07/2015 at 13:35

    One league I'd lost Top 4 if I lost in that league this week.

Cliffy · 12/07/2015 at 13:36

*lose Top 4

    Paul Walnuts · 12/07/2015 at 14:25

    Mate, I have a similar dilemma ,stay with Fyfe and trust my POD players or put the C on JPK,Parker or Buddy ??? If I change i cant make up my mind !!!

      Cliffy · 12/07/2015 at 14:35

      Yeah mate, it’s such a sticky situation isn’t it!

carlashirley90 · 12/07/2015 at 15:34

12 mins in the game and Fyfe -5 !!!

    dognino · 12/07/2015 at 16:15

    Yeah wicked, kept the C on him despite my gut. Can't get much right this year.

      Paul Walnuts · 12/07/2015 at 16:32

      40 at 1/2 time

    Poloko48 · 12/07/2015 at 18:01

    77 at f/t

keyboard warrior · 12/07/2015 at 18:15

Had the C on fyfe, he has been my lowest scorer so far. I’m tipping he’ll be the most traded out player this week for ablett. I’m on 1642 with 8 to go not including fyfe, hodge, sandi, and ibbo

    I N Pieman · 12/07/2015 at 18:27

    If Fyfe is your worst score you’ve had a monster round. Trading Fyfe to Gaz is a very amateur move. I’m sure some will but best to cull your worst performing mid. Not Fyfe

      keyboard warrior · 12/07/2015 at 19:24

      Looks like I’ll get 2550 this week, im not getting rid of fyfe, i just reckon heaps of people will but ill be getting rid of lonie and using dpp to get the little master

    @mysterycannon · 12/07/2015 at 18:39

    Can't see how selling Fyfe won't backfire. I hope lots of people do it. He's had two bad games, both wet, one in a pretty ordinary win and one in a big loss. Form is temporary… class is permanent.

Liam · 12/07/2015 at 18:17

I've had fyfe Captain, dusty and Brodie Smith producing the carnage this week.

Looking at around 2250- 2300.

Is this a decent score?

@mysterycannon · 12/07/2015 at 18:35

Want Hodge – after next week won't get any cheaper.
Want Ablett – will only have breakeven of about 120 so possibly at bottom price.
Want Rockliff – he's cheap as chips for his quality but with ribs not sure if I can prioritize him over the other two.

Some serious decisions and cash calculations to do this week…

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 13/07/2015 at 11:41

    brought Rocky back in. for now, glad I did. get around him

@mysterycannon · 12/07/2015 at 18:36

Good score but top level par score will be about 2300-2350 I reckon with the scoring we've seen so far

Poloko48 · 12/07/2015 at 18:39

On 1923 with Zorks, Parker, JPK & Buddy to come.
Currently on about 2204 at 3/4q time of Swan vs Bris game.
JPK 96
Zorks 83
Buddy 52
Parker 50

    Poloko48 · 12/07/2015 at 19:20

    I finished on about 2316 – what's par this week do we think?

    Dean · 12/07/2015 at 19:23

    Scoring 2320 odd is maybe slightly below par, but hard to say because of Fyfe's poor game. I scored 2490 and think that 2400 would be closer to par this round. Just glad I didn't go Fyfe as my Captain.

      Dean · 12/07/2015 at 19:36

      Actually you scored 2340 after scaling and I cracked the 2508 after scaling which should see my rank go up from 1544 to about 1200 odd I hope.

Mac · 12/07/2015 at 18:42

When you go Goldy over Fyfe…. happy camper!

    Dean · 12/07/2015 at 19:27

    When you go Danger over Fyfe…. Even happier camper, in fact my arousal curve by picking Danger, saved me pitching a tent… :o)

Swans2012 · 12/07/2015 at 19:18

Just a lazy 2594 this week…..

    Swans2012 · 12/07/2015 at 19:24

    Includes smith Jacobs dusty and ziebell’s 60 odds. Still best score I’ve had for a year or two!

      Swans2012 · 12/07/2015 at 19:30

      Make that 2609 after scaling!!!

        Derek · 12/07/2015 at 19:40

        That should get you back into top 100. Well done

          Swans2012 · 12/07/2015 at 19:55

          Here’s hoping! But Reckon I’ll be still about 120 odd, how’d you go?

Mac · 12/07/2015 at 19:19

2509 with Martin, Fyfe having shockers and Maric out, pretty pleased. How did everyone else go

carlashirley90 · 12/07/2015 at 19:19

2702 before scaling my last 5 players Hanners, JPK, Fanklin, Zorko and Beams
This is unreal!!!
My only poo stain scores were Ebert 68 B.Smith 69 and D.Smith 50

    Swans2012 · 12/07/2015 at 19:24

    Monster! Well done!!

    Tophawk · 12/07/2015 at 19:30

    That is massive! Close to the highest score for this round me thinks.

    I will end up with around 2300. Bit below par. Could have been so much better if I had fielded Steele instead of the CEY and whacked the C on Goldy like last week.

    But there is always next week.

      carlashirley90 · 12/07/2015 at 19:35

      Yeah still can't believe it…. My PB was 2511 playing SC for my 4th year so this score has just got me pumped currently ranked 1100 odd so hope to enter the top 500

        Derek · 12/07/2015 at 19:41

        Sensational score Carla.

          carlashirley90 · 12/07/2015 at 19:44

          Thank you Derek was worried when your soul players in Goddard and Kollo toned up but then West coast v Adelaide got me monster scores

            Derek · 12/07/2015 at 19:50

            Excepts for the Smiths, you got good scores out of everyone, some unexpected players went huge.

            I played it to safe, still have 11 trades & $180k. Been at snow all weekend and didn’t make any trades.

        Tophawk · 12/07/2015 at 19:44

        I reckon you will crack top 500 this week alright.

        Zorko went up another 10 SC points after scaling! LOL. I have him as well. This is my first year playing SC and I am ranked around 11000. Hopefully will hold my ground this week. Traded in Hodge this round and JPK last round. :-))

        Have a good one!

          Derek · 12/07/2015 at 19:52

          I’m same as Carla, 4th year playing and having a breakout season.

    hedski · 12/07/2015 at 19:38

    2301 for me. Mrs Hedski @2760
    Dishes for a week πŸ™

      hedski · 12/07/2015 at 19:44

      2787. BANG.

      carlashirley90 · 12/07/2015 at 19:45

      Damn was hoping I would take top score that's huge 2760
      Hope I can get in top 5 then…..

        Derek · 12/07/2015 at 20:55

        102

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 13/07/2015 at 11:13

    Cracking score that. Mighty impressive. I got 2480 out of 21 with the Mullett sitting it out. So pretty happy. Cripps – abs this week to finish off team but Smith at d6 just not getting the job done. Will back him in for a couple more but may have to bring in another premo and put Smith to d7. Happy with the ox – hodge trade this week. πŸ™‚

luke · 12/07/2015 at 19:33

Had 8 players playing today. 19 frees against total, and Fyfe as c coz I couldn’t get goldys vc. I’ve had better sundays

nick · 12/07/2015 at 19:36

anyway I scored 2480 from 21 players missing maric if I had him think would scored 2600 2480 is y highest every score I bought in rocky and had hodge scoreing 165 dan han score 143 for me as cap so just think next week my scores will get better

carlashirley90 · 12/07/2015 at 19:39

2743 after scaling 0.0 my team Hairy Clamz

    Youngy · 12/07/2015 at 19:58

    Well Done! I'll check where you end up being ranked!

    That's gotta be your highest score? right?

      carlashirley90 · 12/07/2015 at 20:14

      Yep by far previous best was 2511 earlier this year

        Derek · 12/07/2015 at 22:38

        I see you are inside top 500 Carla. Well done.

    I N Pieman · 12/07/2015 at 20:13

    Well done Carla. That’s an insane score. My 2579 sucks compared to that

keyboard warrior · 12/07/2015 at 19:41

2550 wish i didnt have the C on fyfe (fyfe is strife)

    carlashirley90 · 12/07/2015 at 19:42

    Haha he will be back just a tough game up in no mans land

    keyboard warrior · 12/07/2015 at 19:45

    2573 after scailing

Rockstar · 12/07/2015 at 19:50

If only I went fyfe over hodge

Probably hit par on the head with 2584

    Rockstar · 12/07/2015 at 19:51

    2454*

keyboard warrior · 12/07/2015 at 19:51

Yeah Fyfe will be back he is too good of a player im am still stoked with my score, i would have been closer to your score if I had of chose the right captain. Well done carlashirly90

Wattsieesq · 12/07/2015 at 19:53

2587 with Fyfe as captain. I think about 2500 will be par.

    I N Pieman · 12/07/2015 at 20:15

    2500 is par in elite players. Fortunately most people aren’t

      I N Pieman · 12/07/2015 at 20:23

      Not to criticise anyone. This was probably really the first week (non byes) teams were at full premo. Some of the scores are insane. It seems those that made full premo with the players they wanted got rewarded. I didn’t get all the players I wanted & they cost me in the highest scoring round of the season

        Dean · 12/07/2015 at 21:35

        I didn't have full premo and scored 2508, however I went Dangerfield over Fyfe as my captain.
        My 22 players were as follows:

        Defence:- Shaw, Houli, Murphy, Hodge, Simpson, Lever
        Midfield:- Fyfe, Pendlebury, Beams, Priddis, Mundy, Dangerfield, JPK, Parker
        Ruck:- Goldy, Blicavs
        Forward:- Martin, Gray, Swan, Dahlhaus, Edwards, Steele

        To my surprise, I really thought my rank would have done allot better then I expected, I was ranked 1544 prior to this week but am now ranked 1410
        So my score of 2508 only gained my rank by 134 positions.

    Dean · 12/07/2015 at 21:38

    So between 2450 to 2500 is par if you expect your ranking to remain the same without decreasing.

      Tyler · 13/07/2015 at 07:20

      Depends where your ranked

        Dean · 13/07/2015 at 23:10

        I'm ranked 1410 overall

Youngy · 12/07/2015 at 19:55

Scored 2570, thought it would be enough to win league games. Lost 2 with opponents scoring 2720 and 2592

    Swans2012 · 12/07/2015 at 19:58

    That’s rough!

      I N Pieman · 12/07/2015 at 20:18

      Seriously rough

    Dean · 12/07/2015 at 23:34

    That is bloody rough mate, I only scored 2508 and thought id win but got done also by 45 points. What rank is your league Youngy, it must be right up there?

      Youngy · 13/07/2015 at 11:40

      About 1000

      Dean · 13/07/2015 at 23:07

      Wow I thought your league will be allot stronger then my league, were ranked 145

Derek · 12/07/2015 at 19:57

Only managed 2347 this week.

Doesn’t worry me much cause I’m having a great weekend, the mighty Hawks crushed Freo and its dumping Snow!

    carlashirley90 · 12/07/2015 at 20:12

    Nice! xox

      Derek · 12/07/2015 at 22:36

      10cm on Friday. 24cm on Saturday and about another 10cm today.

      Starting to get windy outside now and still snowing.

    Youngy · 13/07/2015 at 00:05

    Did you drop down the ranks Derek? hope you can stay up there

      Derek · 13/07/2015 at 09:51

      600th now and 950pt off the top. Not a good week.

        Youngy · 13/07/2015 at 11:40

        Heart goes out to ya Mate

    PDAP · 13/07/2015 at 11:23

    Interesting that the top 20 teams do not have Hawks except for Hodge.

Poloko48 · 12/07/2015 at 20:38

My trade plan this week, with the major aim of getting GAJ in:

OUT Brodie Smith
Swing Newnes back to DEF
With $266.5K in the bank this will give me about $588K – not enough for GAJ.
So will need to cull a rookie.
Choices are either Hamling or Pearce (FRE), leaning towards Hamling.
Thinking Maynard IN for him, not sure on JS though.
Will give me GAJ, in the following setup with only 2 trades left and about $50K:

DEF: Houli, Laird, Enright, Hodge (MID), Newnes (MID), Pearce (Maynard (MID), Goddard (FWD))
MID: Fyfe, Pendles, Priddis, JPK, Parker, Treloar, SMitch, GAJ (Steele (FWD), DMac (DEF), O'Brien)
RUC: Goldy, Maric (Read (FWD)
FWD: Gray (MID), Swan (MID), Zorko (MID), Buddy, Bont (MID), Bennell (MID) (McKernan (RUC), Lamb)

Guess I'm gonna have to ride it out again this year sans trades!

    SideBySidebottom · 12/07/2015 at 23:34

    Maynard's job security is extremely shaky. If you're low on trades the last thing you need is a rookie who doesn't play when you need cover, Taking risks is wise if the upside is large and your defensive strategy is sound. I'd recommend cooling the heels and make a decision later in the week.

    Dean · 13/07/2015 at 23:04

    If your going to cull someone out of Hamling or Pearce I suggest you cull Pearce, providing Hamling in named off course. Pearce has a high B/E so chances are he wont increase but Hamling has a very low B/E

Gazza · 12/07/2015 at 21:46

Someone tell me if Im crazy. My team is 1 player from full premo and that last spot is in my forward line. Im contemplating in doing these trades this week.

Lonie out, Payne (non-playing FWD-MID swing) in.

Neale out, GAJ in.

Then swing Payne into MID and Steel into FWD, making Steele my F6.

Really want Gaz but my midfield is full. My current team if needed is as follows:

DEF: Shaw, Hodge, Houli, Newnes, Murphy, Taylor, (Hamling, Pearce)

MID: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Dangerfield, Beams, JPK, Parker, Neale, Armitage, (D.McKenzie, Neal-Bullen, Steele)

RUC: Goldstein, Martin, (Read)

FWD: Gray, Goddard, Swan, Gawn, Franklin, Lonie, (Dale, Daniel)

Thanks community.

    Dean · 13/07/2015 at 00:38

    Sorry mate but correct me if im wrong, your 1 non premo is Lone in your forward line correct?
    Now you want to burn 2 trades just to bring in GAJ – while getting rid of Neale. Now if you do this your still stuck with a non Premo in Steele in your forward line which is the craziest thing I have heard. Unless you know something I dont in that Neale is injured?

    If I were you id pis$ off Franklin because he is very inconsistent and he will score you 50'to 70's more then he will 100+ and that would make up the score difference if GAJ keeps scoring 140+ scores. However in saying this, it also is a silly move.

    Just bring in someone like Martin in your FWD line or Bartel in round 17 once he drops to around $460k by doing this it will well and truly make up the score difference and allot more than any score GAJ will score, not to mention then you will be full premo.

    Lastly if you have a ton of trades like 10+ then if you wanted GAJ that bad then go for it mate.

    You have a Good side mate, Good luck.

    Lastly

      Gazza · 13/07/2015 at 06:54

      Thanks for the guidance Deano. Getting Bartel in a week or so sounds like a much better idea.

        Dean · 13/07/2015 at 23:17

        Anytime mate, Good luck. I'll be bringing Bartel in round 17 for Edwards who's out for 3 or 4 weeks.

Derek · 12/07/2015 at 21:54

Hopefully this week I can get rid of Griffin and Cloke.

I have $515,500 to replace Cloke.

I’m thinking Bartel or Buddy

    Liam · 12/07/2015 at 22:08

    Bartel is a much better selection. Franklin is way to inconsistent.

    Simo · 12/07/2015 at 22:12

    Bartel looked impressive….who are you looking to replace Griffen with? I've had Griffen all year and thinking of going Griffen to Ablett this wk!

    carlashirley90 · 12/07/2015 at 22:37

    Zorko is smoking it last 5 weeks
    Bartel very tasty I know good selection for sure

    Just make sure you get in a POD that has been consistent player and in less than 10% of teams

      SideBySidebottom · 12/07/2015 at 23:29

      Bartel by the length of the straight.

      Derek · 13/07/2015 at 09:52

      I can get Zorko with Zero left

    Dean · 12/07/2015 at 23:58

    Get Bartel but wait a week mate he will drop to $460k dont bother with Franklin, he will score you more 50" and 60" then he will 100+ mate.

carlashirley90 · 12/07/2015 at 22:34

highest score I have seen this round is 2870 something can't remember the exact number? Bloody huge

    Harry · 12/07/2015 at 23:39

    2880

      Dean · 12/07/2015 at 23:42

      I was so close just missed out by 372 points, bummer. lol

        Youngy · 13/07/2015 at 00:04

        So close

Tyler · 13/07/2015 at 07:27

Hope shiel isn't injured for long that would suck

dognino · 13/07/2015 at 08:14

G'day community, Wallis or Cripps out for Ablett? Whoever I keep will be my M8 for the rest of the season due to low trades. Any advice?

    Youngy · 13/07/2015 at 11:42

    I'd be keeping Cripps

murray · 13/07/2015 at 09:50

who is better for the remaining season: mcdonald or rance

    Ashley J · 13/07/2015 at 10:56

    Tmac

    Youngy · 13/07/2015 at 11:43

    Personally as a richmond supporter, I'd be going rance because I watch all the tigers matches, but Tmac is probably the more consistent option.

@KrazeeEyezK1lla · 13/07/2015 at 11:43

So is it Operation Get Gaz at all costs or are some people gonna steer clear? super expensive, but if he keeps pumping out 150's, this could be as cheap as he'll get

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 13/07/2015 at 11:48

    Also, thinking of instead turning Wallis into Hannebery instead of GAJ, but am a bit reluctant considering I have JPK, Titch and Buddy already.

    Hanners has only had 4 scores under 100, lowest being 86. When he cracks the ton, his lowest is 111. Swannies play GWS, Saints and GC in the final 3 weeks. Worth taking into consideration

    Swans2012 · 13/07/2015 at 12:24

    It is for me, I thinkhe needs to come in, especially if your chasing overall as he might just make a nice pod as a lot of teams have already finished there midfields…

      Swans2012 · 13/07/2015 at 12:25

      gary that is…. I like hanners but am scared of Swan midfielders….

        Derek · 13/07/2015 at 17:44

        Parker let me down last week.

        I think a lot of teams up top will be short on trades and cash and won’t be able to get Gaz in

    SideBySidebottom · 13/07/2015 at 19:30

    Question: "So is it Operation Get Gaz at all costs?"
    Answer: Yes.

Youngy · 13/07/2015 at 11:46

Feel like doing Smith to Tmac? Is that a dumb trade?

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 13/07/2015 at 12:16

    if i wasn't GAJ chasing I may have done the same. Holding Smith for now. SURELY he'll come good.. right……?

    Davo · 13/07/2015 at 12:25

    Doing same thing, can’t see Smith scoring more than 60’s, 70’s. At least tmac will give the odd exciting 100+ score along with his lower scores.

Mac · 13/07/2015 at 11:56

What rookies are on the bubble this week?

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 13/07/2015 at 12:15

    Maynard. Getting him in for McKenzie

      CJay · 13/07/2015 at 13:13

      Daniel W.B. Fwd

      I N Pieman · 13/07/2015 at 13:36

      Don’t like Maynards JS Krazee. Realistically any rookie you get now remains. Just can’t see him playing the rest of the season. Could be wrong but he doesn’t have a very good tank

        @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 13/07/2015 at 14:25

        it's either him or a non playing rookie. McKenzie hasn't played in so long as it is, and somebody needed to go as part of the GOD trade.

          @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 13/07/2015 at 14:30

          he's also there to have the def/mid swing set available if need be. if anybody has any better ideas though, i'm open to hear them

            Swans2012 · 13/07/2015 at 15:43

            I like it, I’d be doing the same but I need boston to a 102k rookie to get lever to gaz via Higgins and gray

            SideBySidebottom · 13/07/2015 at 19:35

            I just burned my def/mid swing set. It was Newnes and DMac but I traded out KMac, swung DMac, Swung Krak and traded in Daniel. I've lost the def/mid link but I think Daniel's job security is that much higher than Maynard's that it will be worth it.

BigDropKick · 13/07/2015 at 15:37

Thoughts on Malceski? Got 95 against the Dogs…
