Menadue 63 – do I take it? I can play either Hewett or Davis on field (have petracca to loop).

Kev

Give Hewett a run

Annoying old lady

Second this – Menadue's 63 is probably the score you can expect from Hewett, so there's not really anything to lose by taking a gamble on him (maybe a loss of 10-20 points max, but a potential 10-30 point gain. Smart risk).

Kev

Dusty and Menadue last night, nice start. Dusty a lesson in keeping faith with your premiums

gator59

OH NOOOO, Was just mucking around on trades for next week to see how the structure looked

and now it won't let me reverse the trades… HELP!!!!!

discojim

Poor b#astrd!
During rolling lockout your can't reverse. You could send @petejank a heart felt message on twitter? Other than that, just drink beer and hope the SC gods make your trades pay off.
Sorry to hear this mate – all the best.

gator59

Thanks discojim for the advice,, But don't have Twitter..

JAYZ

If it makes you feel any better I done the same!!!
Trade Milera for Ben Kennedy..

tophawk

Good move. No need to reverse that trade in any case!

Swanny

Not taking pendles score, do i go with Danger, Fyfe, Gaz, Goldy?

Also should I take Menadues score or play Mccarthy or I can swing Kerridge forward using Petracca and play one of Davis, Gresham, Hewett.

So my question is, who to captain and who to play onfield?

Mac

Don't think McCarthy has a high ceiling, I'd go Hewett against the blues and Danger as skip

CaPtKaOs

I have similar issues and havent worked out the answers yet. Perth andy Brizzy are forecast to reach about 30 degrees. With the reduced rotations, l'm wondering if this will be a factor. Of the potential captains, I think Goldy in particular will have his endurance tested. But he has done it all before.

CaPtKaOs

Sydney will be warm too. Danger is in red hot early season form. Hard to go past him as capt.

Andy

Surely I take Dustys 134 as captain loophole?

Cheers

The Ranger

Oooh…that's a tricksy one.
Generally I'd say anything above 130 should be taken but after only one game and with Fyfe, Danger and Ablett still to play…
Tough call Andy, if it was 140 I'd say you def take it!

Average Joe

Take it, chances are that your other captain worthy players will mostly (If not all) score under 134

SCaddict

Anything over 130 I'd just take the VC points and double them. Your proposed captain may be very well score in excess of that but he could also get injured or have a mare like Teen Wolf last weekend.

Annoying old lady

Had the VC on Dusty, and yes I'm taking his 134 x 2!

Last round had a bunch of players scoring more than 150 points, any of which would have made more than an extremely handy captain. In previous years, these types of large scores were not to be expected every week, but this year with the limited rotations, I get the feeling that the game's superstars are going to have much larger impacts on the game, especially in the last quarter. I think this year we are going to see more of those monstrous scores, however, I feel that this is not a reason to be greedy, and for me, Dusty's score is more than enough to bank those double points.

Saying that, what does the community feel is a worthy VC score to take?

Crowmagnon

I take any VC score above the "would be" captain's average.

Xav

Do i take dusty or punt on gaz

JAYZ

Play hewett, Dunkley or Davis

Really leaning towards Dunkley but could be a bit biased…

Babo

What about Houli? Take his VC score?

Luke

Just Pendlebury last night. Feeling nervous with him in my team after his display on ball in the final quarter. Surely something wrong with him. Looked ok racking up cheap possessions at half back, but should be in the guys.

Luke

Lol. Guts*

Steeeve

Played with bruised ribs

BigHaydos

Taking a punt with Goldstein as captain. my only loophole option was wyatt and collingwood played last night.

Goldy should do me well, averaged 140 last year against north.

Sana

Don't think he played against north last year?

SCaddict

He did but intra-clubs don't really count. 🙂

Steeeve

Needs a big last quarter for ya

CapTnKaOs

Got a dilemma here. Only two playing slots available in my mid for rookies. I have no loophole options.
Currently have Oliver and Kennedy on the ground who are playing the Essendon seconds. Mills on the bench (who is playing Carlton).
My gut tells me I need Mills on the field. Any thoughts?

tophawk

Interesting one. Well B.Kennedy has to start on the field so it will be between Oliver and Mills for that final spot. And that choice is friggin tough!!! Sydney are playing Carlton in Melbourne. So Carlton will put up a fight. Will Mills struggle a bit away from home at Etihad? Then, you have Oliver who is playing the hapless bombers today at home on the G. On these facts Oliver would get the nod for me to start on field. The odds are stacked in Oliver's favour to post a 90 + today. I doubt Mills will quite get that this round. Just my take though!!

CapTnKaOs

Thx tophawk. I like your line of thought.

goran

Who's the best Captain choice: Goldy, Ablett, Priddis or Hanners?
Feel like Goldy is the safest pick but really not too sure

tophawk

Goldy is normally a pretty solid bet. Who is your other ruckman? If its Gawn, I would go to him as the Dees are playing a virtually ruckless bombers. Gawn could nail 10-15 hit outs to advantage and that equals serious points. Goldy does have tough opposition in Stefan Martin when he plays up at the Gabba. Just keep that in mind. I assusme you do not have danger or Fyfe. One of those will be my captain this round. But if you are panicking a bit, just whack it on Gazza. In Gazza we trust!! Cheers

goran

Should I start with Mitch Brown (ESS) or Tippa?

Will

Toss a coin brother

Ben

Who's more of a must have…. Mills or Weitering?
I have mills but With 160k to spare I could go;

Mills –> Libba
Seedsman –> JJ
Seedsman –> Weitering + 300k for next week

tophawk

Seedsman to Weitering without doubt. You dont trade out a rookie (Mills) so early in the season. And you dont chase points upgrading Seedsman. IMO, the best thing to do so early in the season is to trade in players that will generate you the most cash. You will be rewarded with lots of points later in the season when you trade out those cash cow rookies for premo upgrades.
Cheers

SCaddict

Excellent advice tophawk!

Ben

Done
Steele to benken
Seedsman to Weitering

robby snow

What do we do with jack steele? Is it safe to downgrade him to a guy like Daniel Wells, or do we hold and hope he gets a recall next week?

Ben

Wells or Kennedy

Kev

I'd hold, prices aren't going anywhere. Steele is too good to be running around in the twos

hedski

Gresham Davis or McCarthy or take Menadues 63? Thinking Gresh

tophawk

Yeah. I agree. Give Gresham a run. Good young player. Will only get better.

Worth the risk as 63 is a pretty lame score in any case.

hedski

Cheers tophawk

hedski

Hhmm that worked. Bloody gresham shit

Trav

what are people's thoughts on Pendlebury and Treloar. Pendles hasn't been hitting the scores I would like and Treloar was better last week. Am getting concerned they wont be able to get the scores they should be getting consistently (110 or more). Should I have faith or consider other options?

CapTnKaOs

I look at it this way. Pendles got 110 pts last night playing sore. Lets say it takes 4 weeks to work through it and get back to "normal". During this time he still averages, say 100. Is it worth burning a trade for someone who MIGHT snag you an extra 25 points for 4 weeks? And then later on, you will need to burn another trade if you want him back for the pointy end of the season.
I think Treloar should improve as the year goes on and he settles into Collingwood. I think there could be safer choices at a similar price, but its to early to consider trading him out. Stick by your initial plans for now.

Brook

I had him and traded him out last night before the game for GAJ. I know its a risky move but he averages 10-15 points less witbout Swan in the team and reportedley has sore ribs. I was cursing the move at 1/4 time but I am hoping the trade will net me 70-100 extra points over the next eight weeks and I hope to get him back in at around 550k in R9 or 10. Just cant see Ablett getting that cheap. Wont know if its a good move for a few weeks but hoping it works out.

Kev

110 with 20/26 uncontested and zero clearances. Spewing I don't have him. Rarely does he miss a target by foot.

Sat out most of the last when the game was tight so his score had the potential to get higher.

Luke

Gawn Or Ablett VC into Dangerfield C?

hedski

Gawn to danger in my side luke think gawn will go massive

Luke

Me too. 150 against the bombers last year with 58 hit outs. Here's hoping for similar today.

mick

de goeing out of my side next week

Scooter

Trade mitch robinson ? Or trade to the likes of aaron hall ? Help appreciated

Alex

344 after 4 McCaffers 37 was hard to swallow. I have a conundrum community. Next week I will be getting rid of McCaffer for Oliver or Mills. I may also need to ditch Reiwoldt for Hall or/and McGovern got Papley so is it worth Going McGovern to Papley this week to ensure I can make the other trades next week or wait and see how round pans out for Mcgovern and N Roo. Thanks community.

SCaddict

Yes Caff is unlikely to prove a decent enough cow so either go up to whoever performs best this weekend out of Oliver/Mills/Parish/Crowley if you have the cash or down to a Dunkley/Hewett if you don't.

I'd give McGovern another week just in case he bobs up in the Showdown. As nice as Paps score was last weekend the Rd2 rookie scores are double the importance of the Rd1 ones as they will affect pricing for two weeks and not just one.

BCHawks

Did you trade out Pendles SCaddict?

SCaddict

You noticed from the total team scores hey! Well aren't we an observant one BCHawks. 🙂

Yes in comes one Robbie Gray.

BCHawks

What was your reasoning?

Alex

What do I do if Papley scores well and Roo doesn't I only have two trades. Cheers addict.

SCaddict

It depends on how well Papley scores and NRoo doesn't. You could even consider going NRoo down to Paps to generate cash for future upgrades.

But what happens if McGovern scores ok, Papley doesn't and he is dropped next week to make way for McGlynn?
At least you'd be up a trade if you kept McGovern. So there are risks either way.

Luviboy1

Had VC on Pendles last night. Not too happy with his score. Gawn looks good to go big against Essendon. How do we think Gaz will go? Also considering Robbie Gray in the Adelaide derby.

Youngy

Mills, Hewett or Davis on field???

Shinboner

I started with Goldy and Nic Nat in the rucks, I like the lack of competition Nic Nat will have this week in the ruck dept. thoughts on him as captain compared to Goldy who will be up against Stevan?

Luviboy1

Agree. Im taking Gawn vs Essendon over Goldy. Think Nic Nat will also dominate somewhat tomorrow. Stefan v Goldy will be a good battle but I do think it will affect his scoring.

Kev

Goldy scored 154 and 127 against the Lions last year.

Luviboy1

Bloody hell. Guess its hard to keep a goood ruck down. Disregard what I said than haha

Shinboner

Thanks for the input fellas. It's a bit of a coin toss really. Hope your teams are scoring well boys… So long for now

Russ

McEvoy and Ceglar arent exactly, a lack of competition, Nicnat is a freak though.

tophawk

Rory Laird and the crows on fire early in the showdown. 43 SC points at quarter time. Great start….keep going! Crows lead by 32. (40-8)

uDonkey

If B Crouch doesn't fire up in the 2nd half. Would it wise to cull him and get Libba after Round 2, i have the cash to do it. I'm just concern if Libba goes big this week it's gonna be hard to get him at cheap price he is on at moment.

Kev

Trading one midpricer to another? Nah. Crouch will be better for the run each week

Northernsoul74

If Libba goes well again tonight he's becomes a must have.

uDonkey

Fair point, i see Libba to be more of a keeper at M7-M8 and has much a higher ceiling than B Crouch. If Libba tons up tonight his price will shoot over 400K. On top of that he's fallen premium who is under price unlike B Crouch who has to be proven premo.

Shinboner

Libby is a fallen premo tho, so the trade has some merit. I would say yes. I started with lib a instead of crouch for that reason.
Too much speculation on wether or not crouch would dominate, whereas you know Libba will

WELCOME

If Libba scores 100+ then trade Crouch and get Libba into your side PERIOD

CapTnKaOs

Was trying to choose between Polec, B.Crouch and Libba for my midfield midpricer before the season. Thank Gaz Snr that I drew a line through Polec.

Derek

Dammmm looks like Chad out for a few

uDonkey

🙁 I'm thinking the same derek, pulled a hammie. Depending how long he'll be out i might hold on to him. I'll swing B.Kennedy or Menadue up forward for cover.

Derek

Rick might not get a touch today. Getting a close tag and doesn't look like getting near it

Derek

Rich

Derek

3 pts at quarter time

Derek

2 touches to half time

BigHaydos

He should have taken Jacobs to full forward and seen how Jacobs likes playing fullback. Would have been a good target up forward, push walker to the wing and put Taylor in the midfield

hedski

And the top ups win!!

Youngy

Don't think anyone would have picked that upset

hedski

Can't say I did youngy

WELCOME

What the hell looks like Brown doing most of the ruck for North and Rocky up forward. AMAZING

Dave

Do i take grays 129 as my captain or roll the dice with ablett, selwood or nicnat?

uDonkey

Asking the same question myself, Though i Danger as C what are the chance he'll way less than 129. Good thing we still have until tomorrow to decide.

Holty

dont even ask that question. if you are smart you take it. Yes Danger might score you slightly more but is it worth the risk? He could do a hammy in the first quarter. you never know. 129 is a great score. take it.

Luviboy1

Bloody take it. I have to settle with Gawn as my Captain score this week #fmsc

Michael

Dea and AMT on bench 🙁 At least they'll make good money

Jim

Brad crouch to Ben kennedy seems the fo for next week. Agree?

Jim

Go*

uDonkey

I would if didn't have B. Kennedy and gives you a chance to upgrade any mid-pricer you have under performing to a premo.

Kev

Any other way to get BK in? Crouch has been fine so far. He had little preseason and will get better. Be patient with him

uDonkey

S. Martin 51 points already and it's only 2nd quarter. Hope he keeps it up.

uDonkey

Damn Zorko is on fire 94 point on half time. Definitely will be in my watch list or might have to do a sideway trade if Wingard will be out for 3 weeks or more.

Michael

Davis or Gresham or Dunkley who to play ??

WELCOME

Dunkley out of those three. Bevo really likes this kid.

The_Black_Mamba

Rockliff is the first player traded out of my bloody team next week.

Scyb

I am thinking the same. Somehow need to get R.Gray in

Westy

Why? Haven't seen the game.

BantheCheats

Below 50SC points at 3qrtr time

CapTnKaOs

Already counting the cash to see how I can get from him to Ablett.

CarlaShirley

Hmm this is a round from hell so far almost all the popular picks are yo-yo's.

Youngy

Yep

Nicholas

Stuck with rich and rocky what a disaster. Also mills or hewett on field?

uDonkey

That's a bit harsh on Rich i bet you weren't complaining when he scored 104 last week. This week was to be expected he'll have an ordinary week since Zorko is back in the side.

Kev

It was also highlighted preseason that Rich goes to water as soon as he gets some attention.

Mills on field

Dee

I'm in the same boat mate..… is Rockliff to Gray or Martin sensible next week? Rich to JJ or Laird? Rich looks bloody lost.…..

Nicholas

Thinking about getting rid of greene now might have problems with b crouch rich and rocky thoughts?

Alex

Ablett or Danger for Captain

Cashcows

I'm by no means an expert but I think I'd go with Danger v GWS.

Gaz v freo who have something to prove might affect his scoring. But contested possies are great for scoring so I'm not too sure.

But danger looks like the safer option. Unless we get a lopsided sharing of points every week between danger and jelwood.

JimtheInjector

Rich is following his usual SC form, 100 one week and then 50 the next. good thing nobody has him

BigHaydos

He is being tagged……. What do you expect

Holty

lol love it. there has been a few in the community who have said dont select him because he cant handle the tag. and with Beams out Rich is the likely one to cop that tag.

BigHaydos

Exactly

Youngy

"good thing nobody has him"

I have him……… CRAP!

Holty

not watching the game but is Rocky playing forward or just playing ssshhhhhhhh………. rubbish

Youngy

Calf injury I think…..

Holty

cheers bud

BigHaydos

Would love to know how goldy has only got 9 points this quarter what a joke.

Michael

Reckon Wells will be a top 6 forward this year

Holty

if he stays fit he will be.

Youngy

Don't expect him to be scoring 120's every week.

I reckon top 6 is pushing it.

uDonkey

What are the chance of S Martin challenging the no#1 spot in Ruck considering he did ok against Nic-Nat last and doing ok again against Goldy this week. After this round who's gonna out score him maybe Gawn? Jacobs? Don't see anyone else.

BigHaydos

He didn't do well against nicnat in terms of 1on1 against him. He picked up plenty of pill and used it well. I think stef will be amazing this year though

Holty

agree with haydos. i have him based on the fact his great around the ground. He will not out ruck big opposition but believe he will be top 3.

Shinboner

It's too early to call. I think Nic Nat looks good around the ground this year tho. My money would be on him

Harry

Took 1 and a half rounds to cop injuries. Wingard and Rockliff already!

tophawk

Rocky definately injured also? What is wrong with Wingard?

Harry

Rocky calf, Wingard hammy

Kimmyd

Hamstring I think for wingers, fortunately I do not have him as I have rocky and he's gone for a few weeks I think.

Luviboy1

Have both. Carnage has begun. Losing all hope for my season atm.

Youngy

Ye it feels bad first I go to friday nights game and see the tigers lose by a bloody point, now this.

Carnage absolute Carnage!

tophawk

WTF!!! Rockliff is playing an absolute shocker. Surely there must be something up with him. But this has thrown the cat amongst the pidgeons. Will need to seriously assess whether he remains in my team. His performance today is very worrying and his price is set to drop after round 3. Hopefully Goldy will now drop after today's effort. Will hopefully grab him at a more reasonable price.

Connor

Haven't been watching the game at all but would someone please tell me what is going on with Rockliff? Is he injured, playing full forward, being tagged, or just having a poor game. I almost want him to be injured as I then have an excuse to trade him!

Kimmyd

He is injured hasn't played at all in final quarter, calf injury. I was going to trade him out as he's played majority of the game in the forward line, but now he's injured it's a no brainer.

Tulendeena

From what I'm seeing, Rocky > Zorko next week

Zorko will be a top 6 forward, and something seems wrong with rocky

Kev

Calf problem

Youngy

Rocky has a calf problem?

Kram

No comments on Parker as a captain option so far against carton. SMOKEEE or smokey or out of calculations (OOC)?

Bells E Bubb

He'll get you a 115 at a min I'd say. Who knows after that though. Can go 150 on any given day. Carlton will put up more of a fight then the pies did you'd think. Hard to go past Danger after last week.

Youngy

Wouldn't put it on Parker when u can put in on Danger or Fyfe

uDonkey

I'm in a bit of a dilemma this week. Wingard strain hammy Rocky and Rich called it a day on the 4th quarter apparently carrying an injury. Looks like i have to hold on to B. Crouch a bit longer. The fear i had with Rocky having to burn a trade early like last year, should've stayed with Priddis. Smh

Nicholas

Went greene to jj hope i dont regret it. Couldnt risk it alrdy needed to trade out rocky next week might need a corrective trade for rookies and idk if i want to keep rich also the possibility of more injuries this round

Youngy

First round trade….. Risky…..

Treaty

Fyfe or danger captain?

tophawk

I am whacking the VC on Fyfe (Loopholeable) and the C on Danger.

Pap Smear

LOL go danger hes is a sure bet …..like holding pocket aces!

Luke

Last week I had priddis, NicNat and danger to paper over the cracks. Here's hoping they can do it again!
Really want to get Parker and Zack merrett in my team. Rockliffs injury means I can get it done, and get rid of spudhead greene!

Bells E Bubb

Aaaarrhhhh! FFS I forgot to take the C of Loersch and am stuck with Fyfe as VC! He'll spud it up again no doubt while Danger who I was supposed to pick will prob knock out 180.
What happened to Rocky!?
Was traveling fairly well until…

Holty

what are you complaining about? He is on 78 at half time.

Hawks

You got so lucky

DadSmasher

Hahaha You had a tantrum for nothing mate, obviously Jesus loves you

Bells E Bubb

I take it all back, but when I posted he was on about ten handballs to one kick. I think it was just panic on my part as for one sinking minute I thought I'd left the VC on Rocky.
LOVE you Nate.

Noigerbour

Toss

Bells E Bubb

Has Nate Fyfe got a sore foot or has he forgotten you are allowed to kick the ball in AFL!?
Thinking of going Rocky to a rookie and B Crouch up to Ablett next week.

BigHaydos

Fyfe is Doing fine dude

Kev

He's fine. On 65 and it's not half time yet.

Youngy

Think that's a bit better than fine.

Tulendeena

I want to stick with my guns, but Barlow is making that extremely difficult…..

Iamme

Fyfe is 78 at half time and doing fine…but Barlow is facing the flick from my team, if he don't pull his finger out in the second half. think I will be investing in Marcus Adams next week 73 half time and good old reliable Libba (who I do have) on 71

tophawk

Marcus Adams is a find alright. Got him in my team and am very pleased. I have Barlow and he is fast turning into a "Burnman". Luckily we can still pi-ss him off before his price craters. I have Libba and he is as solid as a rock. Looking fantastic.

Youngy

Rockliff and Rich? what happened I didn't see the game?!

Did anyone watch it?

tophawk

Rockliff injured with a calf complaint. Is likely to miss games. Rich just spudded. Inconsistent prat.

Youngy

Rockliff traded out next week then, kinda have to stick which Rich…. Wish I went with JJ

Derek

Rich got a very close tag. He'll be ok

Youngy

A score like that takes a real hit to your team especially when not many people have Rich.

Iamme

They F#%*ed me that's what happened…Rockcliff did a calf, not sure about Rich

Connor

Where is M. Barlow playing?

Kev

Bit too much forward. Put him in the guts Ross!

Youngy

Yes please in the guts.

But I guess if everyone has him it doesn't really matter, then we all get the hit.

BloodyFranklin

Spewing I got stuck with KK instead of JJ right now 🙁

Youngy

I chose Rich 🙁

BloodyFranklin

Jumpin on the JJ bandwagon?

Iamme

Yeah JJ seams like the real deal…..I'm thinking I will off Seedsman for him next week.

Holty

come on Gaz. Get to 110 and ill be happy with the captain choice. Had Goldy with the vc.

Scyb

Do not ever doubt the almighty one

tophawk

Johanissen will find a way into my side next week at 418K. At that price, he is now also a cash cow as well as a point scoring machine. Brilliant back up performance tonight.

Youngy

Yep, annoyed I didn't start with him.

thought he was going to spud it up big time, he still might in the next few weeks, but looking in unbelievable form.

Would you hold Rich tophawk? or trade him to JJ.

Thinking Ill just have to hold and maybe snag JJ up later.

Connor

Ablett being tagged? Can't watch the game as I don't have foxtel. Or is he just having a poor (disposal) game?

Scyb

The ball not going to him at stoppages like it usually does.

hedski

hedski

siri

Fyfe is life

Youngy

It's going to be so hard to stick with your premos after this round. I will obviously have to get rid of rockliff but barlow and rich IDK

siri

I got rocky in for sidebum……. this is soooo painful

hedski

Ouch siri. I grabbed libba for the bum. 🙂

Derek

They all seem to be carrying an injury. Pendlebury, Rocky, Wingard. Going to be a tough week

Kev

Barlow is the bigger worry, not playing the role we hoped. Rich won't lose cash this week after his 100 in round 1

siri

Barlow bang bang

DadSmasher

Adams 135! I hope we all had him onfield this week

uDonkey

Unfortunately i took tipungwuti score of 84 and ruggles on field so missed out on Adams 135.

SCaddict

Yes had him on field in all 3 teams. One of the few things that has gone right in a round chock full of burnmen everywhere you look.

DadSmasher

All 3 teams? Doesn't that disqualify you from winning any of the prizes? The TandC say one team only. Genuine question because I might create a couple of teams at the byes to try and get the round cash

SCaddict

All 3 teams as in Supercoach, RealDreamTeam and AFL Fantasy.

I usually only discuss Supercoach as let's face it – it's the superior code.

DadSmasher

Ahh now I get it.

BigHaydos

So I got Sam gray. Hahahahahaha cheers mate!

Nah he will come good

SCaddict

Wish I could've predicted a Port Showdown flogging. I had him spudding him up two my sides too.

Hopefully he shows his worth next week against the Dons.

Youngy

How do u find the time to put that much effort into 3 teams, as well as your contributions to the comment sections.

Ridiculous….

I can hardly keep up with 1 team.

Derek

Lucky I didn't trade Dawson in this week. Only 18SC pts.

He might drop in price

SCaddict

Is the Lobbe experiment over Derek or does the Bunnies have other priorities after this weekend?

Addicts has Rocky and Burnman Barlow to deal with next week.

gator59

I'm glad that when i was mucking around with my side this morning, Rocky and Barlow was the ones i acidently traded out!!

SCaddict

Fortune has smiled on you today gator. Who did you trade in mate?

gator59

Hanners and Stringer

Derek

Port have got Essendon at Home next week. I'll hold Lobbe for that at lest.

At least with Rocky and Barlow is that most people have them

Steeeve

I'll wait and see how bad the injuries are but I've got Chad Wingard and Rocky. If both out for a fair while I'm thinking of swinging Marcus Adams forward and going Wingard to JJ, love his game. That'll give me the coin to upgrade Rocky to someone far less injury prone.

Glad I'm happy with my rookies (touch wood). So important to get them right.

SCaddict

Yes that's looking a very attractive proposition, also for those who have had a gutful of Burnman Barlow. Talk about sucking in the fantasy world. What a Feb Flyer!

Eagles next on the menu too so I shudder to think how Low can the Bar go – that's if Rossy doesn't already drop him for us.

Harry

Port Adelaide website says Wingard is ok. I'm trading Rocky but holding Wingard

Steeeve

Trade Rocky and Barlow instead??

DadSmasher

Rocky and Barlow you are sacked. Zorko and Priddis welcome to the LabRats

uDonkey

I think i might be doing the same Zorko and Parker/Priddis. Rocky and Barlow out.

DadSmasher

Yeah Parker might get the job before Priddis particularly if he goes 110 or more tomorrow.

tophawk

Barlow has been given the sack. Rocky is on workers comp. Both liabilities.

Hawks

Agreed, will be Rocky & Barlow to Ablett & Zorko for me.

tophawk

Bang bang! I like it. As long as you have they key rookies mate.

Cheers

uDonkey

I feel for those who traded Fyfe!?! Good on those who put VC or C Fyfe.

Hawks

I don't, if you traded Fyfe out after 1 poor week, you deserve what you get.

uDonkey

Agree hawks. And no I'm not of them still have full 30 trades, won't be after this round. I'm in a dilema this week with Wingard Barlow Rocky and Rich.

Harry

Spot on if you traded Fyfe after 1 bad game you have no idea. Wingard is ok, Barlow is a sack of potatoes, Rocky is in trouble and Rich has never been SC relevant. Tough choice but Wingard is the keeper. I also want to get JJ in but can't have em all so for mine Barlow and Rocky out

DadSmasher

You still having trouble with sarcasm Sheldon?

Youngy

I don't, agree with Hawks.

DadSmasher

My 2016 philosophy is "If they break a calf/groin/hammy sell em and get a new one".
It's working so far, I traded Robbo for Zach earlier today.

FootyFanatic

I thought the same, so I traded Robinson to Wingard which obviously didn't work out well.

DadSmasher

urgh. That sort of luck can ruin a season

uDonkey

How's everyone going with score so far?
I'm on 1245 from 13 projected score of 2200 hoping I'll get around 2100-2200. Stiill have Danger Shaw Ward Nic-Nat McCarthy Weitering Kerridge and Mills to play.

uDonkey

Oh plus tipungwuti score of 84. So basically I'm on 1329 / 14

The Ranger

1561/13 projected 2418.
And astonishingly, no injuries so far….

Hawks

Wow, you must have played Fyfe as captain, right?

The Ranger

I wish. Ablett actually, had no loophole option.

hedski

Looking the goods ranger

The Ranger

Having a bit of luck helps Hedski, last year it was me getting all the injuries.

DadSmasher

Brilliant score with 9 premos to play?

The Ranger

Not 9 no, Danger, Bartel, Nic Nat, Priddis, Yeo, Simpson, Kerridge, Hewiit and Mills still to come

uDonkey

Awesome score so far Ranger, still have quality players in hand should get your projected.

DadSmasher

1410 from 13 projected 2378 I have the VC on Fyffe and the C on Danger but I don't have a loopholer unless I trade McCarthy for for galluci etal
still have Danger (C) SMitch, TMitch,Bartell, ZSmith, McGovern, McKenzie, Kerridge and Weitering to play

Hawks

1447//14 – projected around 2300, should get 2350+
Still to play Danger (C), Ward, Priddis, Simpson, Weitering, Kerridge, Mills & Parker

Iamme

Disastrous round for me Polec 8 bloody points!!!, Rich & Rocky and Barlow all epic fails 1380/16….. Shaw, Weitering, Naitanui, Kerridge, Mills and Danger (capt) yet to play.

WELCOME

15 played and on 1450 – I have Danger as Captain, Nic Nat, Rioli, Motlop, Weitering, Kerridige & Mills to play.
Projection score is 2239

However I cannot see me scoring that projection score as my remaining players have quite high projection points.
Such as : Motlop 95, Danger (288), Rioli 93, Nic Nat 128, Weitering 87, Kerridge 27, Mills 71

I am not confident about Motlop, Rioli, Weitering reaching these scores, If they do I will be happy.

DadSmasher

I think Kerridge will make up for any shortfall. He should go 50 or more above his projected 27
