THE PANIC ROOM – Round 3

Published by Patch on

PatchCoachKingsLogo

What a week of football it has been. The Suns rose in the west, the Giants knocked over the Cats and MIGHTY DONS GOT UP. AWW YISSSS.

Hot diggidy damn that win felt good, and if Joey and Zach Merrett fire against a very depleted and downtrodden Port side tonight, you might just see me leaping over the moon with joy.

But, it was an even bigger week in Supercoach. Mouses have been hovering over the names of Barlow and Rockliff all week, and Papley and Adams are the names on everyone’s lips to bring in.

Beyond those four names, we’ve had to panic to correct out-of-whack sides that two short weeks ago looked set to bring home 50k worth of bacon. A couple of very fantasy-relevant OUTS this week and some ill-timed rookies have set that panicked, burnt-rubber smell in the air.

But it’s okay, because we’ve left the stove on, forgotten to turn the bath off and come down to the Panic Room to sort out the important thing in life – Supercoach.

THE NEWS

Top of the news reel – Michael Barlow has been saved.

Saving Michael Barlow

Michael Barlow’s been scoring as if he’s playing in WWII-era France, but now a crack team of Freo players are here to save him. Freo captain and centre-square linchpin David Mundy is OUT of the Derby this weekend, leaving the gateway open for everyone’s favourite bit of trade-bait and general lump of forward line cash to run – albeit slowly – through the middle of the ground. If he can’t ton up this week he never will.

Brisbane captain Tom Rockliff continues the bad run of calves in the AFL, and is out of the Lions’ clash with Geelong, and I’ve heard whispers Daniel Rich won’t make the trip for Sunday night’s game. However, Mitch Robinson returns for those who held him.

Big news surrounding Adelaide’s Brad Crouch who will miss this week’s game with hamstring tightness.

I don’t have him, but would be concerned after his start to the season didn’t exactly set the world on fire. If you don’t have bigger issues, I’d personally flick him.

As I’ve mentioned, Port have been hit with injury. The only fantasy-relevant injury is Chad Wingard’s niggle. I feel if it was a big game he’d have got up, but as The Crouching One’s slipper warned us, sides will rest blokes against Essendon.

We’ve had a hit on the rookie front, with Jade Gresham, Brent Macaffer and Caleb Marchbank (a smokie from GWS I had my eye on) all out – the first two dropped, the latter injured for two months with a dicky ankle. They’ve all got to go for whichever bloke you missed – which I’ll get to in a minute.

We have some debuts this week with Darcy Bryce-Jones from Port lining up for his first game, and both Josh Wagner from Melbourne and Tom Ruggles from the Cats being named on extended benches. Daniel Rioli also returns. Watch and wait.

Melbourne decided Angus Brayshaw was slightly to underdone and have sent him back to the reserves, and Jacob Townsend from the Tigers has felt the axe.

Daniel Menzel has been named on a forward pocket, which will impact the score of fellow small forward Lincoln McCarthy – who has been named on the ground, so no danger there this week.

TRADING PLACES

Breakevens are now in effect as prices begin to change. For those people who may be new to Supercoach, a breakeven dictates how much a player’s price will go up or down. This breakeven is based on complex numbers that may as well be written in Urdu.

Basically if a player reach their breakeven they stay the same price. If they are higher than the breakeven, they go up in price; if they score lower they will drop. So, I’ve got the list of the highest and lowest (relevant) breakevens. Eddie Murphies, like their namesake from the classic film Trading Places, are on the up, while Dan Aykroyds’ stocks – and prices – are on the way down.

Eddie Murphies

Eddie Murphies

-149 – Tom Papley
-110 – Ben Kennedy
-72 – George Hewett
-149 – Marcus Adams
-112 – Sam Kerrdige
-52 – Connor Menadue

Dan Aykroyds

174 – Nat Fyfe
202 – Sam Jacobs
163 – Shane Mumford
177 – Josh P Kennedy
167 – Scott Pendlebury
194 – Heath Shaw
174 – Michael Barlow

THE TALKING POINT

This is the week we fix our teams – but what are the priorities? Lek’s cheat sheet covers pretty much all I could this week, so check that out.

Otherwise, the rookies I consider must haves are Marcus Adams, Ben Kennedy, Sam Kerridge and Matthew Dea. Goalsneak Tom Papley is coming into my side, but with McGlynn back I think his best scores are behind him, and he’s purely to ride on those coattails. I don’t see him as essential, but if you can get him in, do so.

In terms of mid-pricers, Tom Liberatore is a must for those who – like me – tried to outsmart the system and start without him. Lekdog’s man Aaron Hall is also a must-have in my view. I don’t see Bulldog’s runner Jason Johanissen as essential this week. He’s due for his first big test this week, and will only rise some 60k. I do have him, but I’d give him one more week.

Tom Rockliff, Michael Barlow and Daniel Rich were all discussed extensively in the podcast. I don’t have Rich, but would hold if I did. Barlow has been saved due to the news Mundy is out – the last time Mundy missed, Barlow ended with 35 touches. Tom Rockliff is gone for me.

MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT BARRON VON CROW’S ROOKIE SCOUTING REPORT THIS WEEK

CAPTAIN A-meh-RICA

The lazy man’s captain pick – done by the lazy man, for the lazy man.

My smokie this week Aaron Hall against the Blues – he’s in brilliant form.

I need to have the VC on someone from tonight’s game – Robbie Gray the obvious option here. For those with a nicer loophole, I’d try Scott Pendlebury.

For the big orange C, I’m going with Nat Fyfe in the derby, but he, Patrick Dangerfield or Gary Ablett could get the C very safely… I hope.

 

Anyway, enough of my dithering! I should be around the comments this afternoon, so I’ll see you in the trenches!

Good luck, community, and make sure you get down to a CoachKings game!

Barlow will ton up this week for sure

Benjamima Puddleduck

I traded him last week, so i feel lucky i dont have everyone's drama this week. Its been painful to read about.

Will ton up, not going to be a top 6 Fwd though. So many options out there this season.
I wouldn't have picked Freo to be 0 and 3 by the end of this week… =(

Youngy

Hopefully Barlow tells all who traded him out to get stuffed with a big ton!

Josh

Gresham out for hewett or parish?

Jimi

Parish for the JS. Hewett could be dropped at any time.

Patch

Agreed, Jimi. Parish won't make you as much do$h, but will be there all year.

Josh

Cheers guys that what I was currently running with

NickVas

Should we try to get hewitt in?

SCaddict

I wouldn't say it would be high on the priority list for most coaches but if you don't have any other real issues then yes I'd bring him in for a Gresham or some other bench donut.

Kevin Skywalker

Regarding Barlow: "If he can’t ton up this week he never will." Never has there been a truer word spoken, Patch!!

dwhits

Thoughts community!

B. Kennedy > Dean gore
Papley > petracca

Are these smart moves? It'd feel annoying bringing petracca back once he's on the bubble though… Help

Patch

I'd hold Truck (Petracca) is you can. Have you got anyone else you can turn into Papley? Would go a Crouch or someone before Truck

dwhits

Montagna, Barlow, dusty, kerridge, Wells, menadue is my fwd line…

Benjamima Puddleduck

Hold on Petracca, would be a silly trade

BigHaydos

crouch for parish?

Benjamima Puddleduck

=/

SCaddict

Hey Patch not sure where you are getting your BEs from – last week perhaps??

This week Paps and Adams should both be -149, Fyfe 174 etc

Patch

Cheers, SC! I'm trying to get them changed now

Baggy Pants

Like your work Patch. If Barlow gets say 110 points this week approx how much would his price drop?

SCaddict

About $30K as he has a BE of 174 just like Fyfe. But another 60 odd and it will be over $50K!

Baggy Pants

Thanks SCaddict I think I'll roll the dice and give barlow one more shot.

Paul

Just looking on TooSerious, their calculator says if he gets 61 (his average so far this year) he'll lost just under $40k. If he gets 110, he'll lose $23k

Bomber56

He's been in and out of my team all week but I will risk another week and hopefully save a trade.

I've got my eye one Heater Shaw in about another 2-3 weeks.

If he has another sub 80 game against my Swans tomorrow and he'll be south of $500K in no time!

#lekislife

DadSmasher

Nearly 14% made the analytical selection on which crouch brother and didn't subscribe to the 'Brad is a better footballer' rubbish that sucked in almost 20%. Now that the pretender has broken down early as predicted he wont be stealing the easy points from the more talented Matt and Matt will go back to his 1.7ppm seen in Nab. even if he only scores 80 he'll increase by 20k and I don't have to play a rookie in the middle. Already 62k well spent

SCaddict

Nothing like a man with confidence!

But please don't put the mozz on young Matty as I have him in my AFL fantasy side. 🙂

BigHaydos

good on ya dad! but what do i do with brad crouch! what a tosser.

thinking about parish and banking the cash

BigHaydos

parish or hewett

DadSmasher

Depends on whether or not you need them on the field bigfella. If they're bench only you should take the cheaper one. If you need somebody on field I'd be looking for somebody guaranteed to last until the byes and will make 50kplus eg Lambert Wright maybe even Daisy

Benjamima Puddleduck

Well played! it was always a gamble which one was going to be better fantasy wise.
I had Brad. I put him in the Rockcliff category, going to see the best of him at about half way through the season.

If people are looking at a replacement for him of similar range,
Libba
Hartung
Hunter
Will be great options. Or get in a must have rookie you may have missed.

azza

do you guys think ruggles will end up playing?
was hoping to use him as a loophole but now may have to put the VC on sam gray

Kev

Sunday teams are finalised around 5pm

Patch

Geelong are pumping him up for his first game so it looks like he will play, Azza.

Average Joe

He is named in the starting 18 on field, so yes he's definitely playing

Benjamima Puddleduck

Will play, great game to bring him in on, a undermanned Brisbane team.
i thought they would have played Cockatoo as well.. =(

Jonathan Camac

I want to keep Barlow, but I'd also love to have BenKen in my side. Frees up 300 grand, to future trade a mid priced rookie to a premo. Thoughts? I wouldn't be too fazed if from now on, Barlow averaged 20-30 more than BenKen..

@DimSIMpson

If that 20 odd point hit won't ruin your soul then do it.

Patch

I'd do it – that warchest can be used next week for a big upgrade.

Jonathan Camac

Love your work Patchy brother

Benjamima Puddleduck

Id do it, actually done it, a week ago…

Tre's Loar

they play north this week, I see a gradual decline.

Brett

I've been extremely lucky with my rookies and low price premiums so far, starting with a majority of the fattest. Weits, Hartly, McTippa, Dea, Oliver, Davis, Kennedy, Hewett, Mills, Adams, Wells, Kerridge all in my starting line up. I have also been fortunate enough only to be stung by Barlow. I traded sideass for Parker in round one and have decided to flick Barlow for Paps and was able to get Gibson in my defence for Round 2. Really feel like I have the right mix early, barring injuries, just gotta sit back and wait for my cows to fatten and then start careful trades. Team is as follows – Gibbo, Laird, Houli, Shaw, Dea, McTippa (weits, Hartly)
Parker, Danger, Priddis, Libba, Kennedy, Fyfe, Hewett, Mills (Crouch, Oliver, Davis)
S.Martin, Sauce (Grimley)
Hall, wells, Adams, Kerridge, Greene, Paps, (Milera, Patracca)
Thoughts?

Brett

Also Priddis' 200th so going to loophole him. Bounce to danger if that fails

Jonathan Camac

Geez looking solid mate. Hurts to see Oliver sitting on bench though, gotta say. Good team dynamics

Jonny

What are your thoughts on Sam Jacobs?
I've got him and have been very disappointed with his start.

Kev

Stick with him, he's just in a lean patch. Very durable and consistent scorer

GaryReal

Mate five of my players were injured last week. Before then I was ranked 349th. Understand that your confidence stands for nothing in supercoach. Good luck tho

Tulendeena

Is Crouch to Parish necessary if Holding Rockliff?

Or is having both on bench fine?

NickV

Both on the bench means u have a rookie that will probably get 60 on the field. If your fine with taking that score then all good.

Jonathan Camac

Tough question. I'm keeping Crouch, his numbers when fit and firing are worth it. His price will rise to a considerable price, where we can trade him for a premo. Will only be gone for a week too. Rockliff I'm unsure of. Next to no preseason combined with injury & not good super coach numbers. I've traded Rocky, but up to you,

NickV

Jonathan Camac, have you kept Bralow??

Jonathan Camac

Still working through it. I really like thought of keeping Barlow – but also like thought of freeing up some cash. Read my comment further up this page of comments (current dilemma). What are your thoughts on him?

NickV

I'm trading Barlow. Don't won't to risk him not getting a good score this week and having to trade him out at 50k cheaper!

Jonathan Camac

I think I'll be doing the same at this stage. Good luck to you Nick!

Patch

If you've got cover, then you can keep both on the bench. However, I'd personally trade one of them because I wouldn't be comfortable losing that point potential. You could mount arguments either way as to which one to drop, but I'd kick Rocky first.

cooky

thoughts on trading in J Waite?

Billy

silly

Patch

"you chase the car, you get exhausted" – Crouching One.

If he was 100k cheaper he'd be a decent cash grab. At this price, no.

eyyy

would love some thoughts on zaharakis?

@DimSIMpson

Used to play the odd game with big numbers, and now he's the main man in the middle.
Would take a brave man to bank on him, but could be a very handy selection.

SCaddict

Yes a stepping stone like Pieman suggests but looking a bloody good one.

Was underpriced to start with and with his onball role and ripping form and fitness this season I'll be jumping onboard this week.

Nonetheless I'm expecting somewhat of a disappointing result tonight as Port will be looking to redeem themselves after the Showdown humiliation last week. But I think we can expect at least 95-100 output from here which is way above the 77 he's currently priced at.

Marc

Decided to hold Barlow this week and hope he comes good and Ross the Boss sticks him in the guts!
Only dilemma is i dont have Papley, however I do have all the other cash cows waiting to fatten up.
Peoples thoughts on Papley as a MUST HAVE?
he wont keep up this scoring with players coming back into the swans side.
And what to do with Gresham? sideways to Hewett?
cheers

@DimSIMpson

Gresham sideways to papsmear via DPP?

Not a must have, but could make 200k in 2 weeks.

Kev

I agree. With two 100+ scores in his 3-week average for the next two weeks, he'll go up by 150-200k by round 5 even if he starts scoring crap. With Ruggles and Byrne-Jones named this week if either of them hit the ground running you could make a quick 200k as most have the McTip/Adams/Brown swingset open

FootyFanatic

I'd rather Papley over hewett, trade out Gresham and swap one of your DPP foward rookies into the midfield and then you can trade Pap into your foward line.

Dean

Marc you GOTTA get the Pap smear in, especially if you have Gresham, are you aware how the DPP trade work mate?

For example if you click on TRADE on Gresham, you then scroll down to your forward line in the trade section and you will see a grey (S) on all forwards who are FWD/MID – For example Menadue, you then click on the grey (S) next to Menadue or who ever you wish and this allows you to bring Papley in your forward line by trading out Gresham and Menadue takes Gresham's spot in your midfield.

Make sure you bring in Papley this way if you have Gresham mate. Its my #1 trade and its a MUST.

Hope that helps.

Luke

Too hard this week lol. Forced to keep Barlow with Rocky and Crouch out. Could be worse with rich and Pendlebury under clouds. Might have to pass on Papley.

Grinter

It's Josh Wagner from Melbourne Patch. Otherwise great stuff.

Patch

Cheers, Grinter. The site's not letting me edit at the moment, but when I can I'll fix that (and breakevens)

james

Gresham to Parish

BCrouch to Libba

are these good trades – it leaves my mid looking like

Danger, Ablett, Priddis, Shiel, Adams, Viney, BCrouch (Libba), Benken (Parish) (Hewett, Davis, Menadue)

I end up moving BenKen down Fwd and Menadue to mid bench

or should i go BCrouch to Libba and then Rocky to Titch or Parker

Jonathan Camac

What you've done is decent. Libba you should already have had in your team – but seeing as he wasn't, not a bad move to swap with Crouchy.

Patch

Libba a must, so yes. Like those moves, James.

Cameron

How far away is Petracca?

Jonathan Camac

I'm suggesting maybe a month, cold be earlier (not entirely sure). Will give us a good amount of time for our midfield/fwd benched rookies to increase in price, so we can downgrade to Petracca.

Unless you already have him. Then hold on to the boy.

Patch

Still unsure – could be round 4, round 7, round 10. It keeps changing every second day. Hold him if you've got him.

Kev

Feels good to chuck the C on Gaz again without a worry. Tossing up between Shaw in the derby or Sammy Gray as a smokie tonight against the bombers for vc

I N Pieman

It is worth noting people that a magnificent bald man called Gary Averages a stagging 151 ppg at Metricon stadium. He's playing the blues there this weekend.

SCaddict

Yes I'll have the VC firmly planted on that sweet bald dome. 🙂

hedski

Robbie Gray into Bald Jeebers for me

Doug

GaJ a lock? Some concerns atm and swapped out Barlow for Paps so can upgrade Crouch(b) for anyone.

Matt

SuperCoach website says he averages 131.2 at Metricon? Where'd you get 151

Caz

Hi community who to trade out of Barlow or Sam grey, at the moment I have gone rocky out and Sam grey out for robbie grey and libba via dpp. What do you think thnx.

Patch

I'd keep Sam Gray – feel that's a knee jerk trade. Would go Rocky-Libba and leave it at that if the rest of your side is looking okay!

Jonathan Camac

agree with patch. Port got torn apart, so Sammy Gray wasn't playing his standard 'rack up a fist load of possessions'. Will be back in business tonight I'd say.

Caz

Would you keep Barlow though, or is it better to get a prem mid via dpp

Caz

I have all the rookies I need, so you would keep Barlow as well. Or get rid of him via dpp for danger or robbie grey. Thnx for the advice much appreciated

Jimi

Given the developments at Freo in the last 24 hours I'm keeping him.

Also, looking at your options, Danger would be the number 1 trade in target. Danger is going to drop in price this week, which will subsidies some of the money you will lose on Barlow by holding (if you still decide to trade him to Danger next week).

Caz

Ok thnx for the advice think I will hold.

Kev

There better be a few dozen Simpsons references in your article next week, Patch! Disappointed!

Patch

Hahaha sorry Kev! They will undoubtedly make a return, my friend.

Mighty_Hondo

Yep, that's a paddlin!

Shame you can't put pics in the comments…;)

DadSmasher

I see that a few people are dragging Barlow out of their trash and putting him back on field, these sorts of actions NEVER turn out well.
Even if he does OK he'll only score 100 and drop 40K then next week mundy comes back and you'll be kicking yourself because you're 15k short for getting Merrett or similar

Jonathan Camac

you make a good point DadSmasher.

rosy

Fair point but I have a feeling that if the Dockers have a win then Ross The Boss might keep Barlow in the guts regardless of Mundy's return.

It's a gamble but I have faith in Barlow's premiumness and Ross' desperation to return to winning form and stay there.

Probably the biggest sliding doors moment of the season (albeit short) so far. Should be facsinating either way.

Marvin

I agree smasher. Strong arguments to hold or flip but for a bloke about to spill a lot of coins over the next few weeks, mundy out for a week shouldn't even come into the equation to keep or not. You either see something in him you want to stick strong or you want to get out before the roof falls in

Hayden

Hey,not sure who to get for Rockliff these would be my best options. danger, Parker, gray, priddis, Mitchell, merrett, ward, Zorko, Mitchell or zaharakis

Jonathan Camac

Depends how much money you have. Parker is a great option – as price is lower comparatively, but scores are high. If you've got the money for an ultra premo – Danger, Priddis or R.Gray are all great options in my opinion.

Hayden

Thanks, got 250k so got enough to get any1, which one do you think is the best one to pick up that will last me throughout the whole season

Patch

If you haven't got Dangerfield, I'd get him asap. Otherwise Priddis, then Gray.

Benjamima Puddleduck

Roll the dice, you generally wont go wrong with any of them. Always going to be a gamble.

BP1

I have all the rookies except parish. I traded
Barlow – Hall
But holding Rich….
My question….should I upgrade wines to Parker
Or stick with and save cash for next weeks cows!??

Jonathan Camac

Hard to justify trading Wines, unfortunately. But if you could find a way to get Parker in via Rockliff or something, that'd be a great trade.

Patch

Hold Wines, my boy will come good.

Or at least he bloody well better!

Nicholas

Hey community need help overcoming my current predicament.
First of all here is my team:
Backs- Laird, JJ, Bartel, Rich, Weitering, Dea (AMT, Brown)
Mids- Fyfe, Danger, Ablett, Rocky, Wines, Libs, B Crouch, Mills ( Hewett, Dunkley, Davis)
Rucks- Nic Nat, Gawn ( Cox)
Forwards- Barlow, Hall, Wells, B Ken, Kerridge, Adams ( Menadue, L McCarthy)
With $166.6k in the bank

Obviously Crouch, Rocky, Barlow, Rich, Dunkley and Bartel are all problems.
Thinking of moving rocky on to robby gray or parker. The other trade I want to do is get in Papley however I am not sure who to move on to get him in. I am fine on giving Barlow 1 more chance to see how he goes and if he screws up I will trade him to another forward next week. Also who should I be loopholing this week.

Thanks for any suggestions that are posted

Patch

Crouch and Rocky the two to go for me – Rockliff-Gray and Crouch-Papley via DPP would be my moves, Nick!

Nicholas

what do you think if Rich doesnt play?

Marco_Polo94

Are people doing anything with Dunkley? High chance he won't make the final bench cut. Gresham to Papley is all I've done so far, wondering whether dunkley to parish to get the best rookies would be a good move

Jonathan Camac

I'm leaving him for now – priorities are elsewhere for me. Depends if you want Hewitt in your side too, unless you already have him.

JamiesNinjas13

Dunkley named at half back for the footscray vfl side, he is defs getting dropped.
Traded him for Papley.

Luke

At least I will have a loophole now lol. All my other 0's play early

SCaddict

Perfect for a Gaz or Fyfe VC if you have them.

Vinny

Need some help community!

I have both Brad Crouch and Thomas Rockliff. Was hoping to offload both but who are good options.
I know Parker is good for Rockliff and swaying towards that decision.
For Brad all i can think of is Parish or Oliver. Then I could trade Rocky to an ultra!

My other decison is to just do the single trade of Rocky to Parker. Sub Crouch off onto the Bench and using DPP bringing Wells into my midfield for menadue into my forward line and then putting either menadue or papley on field.

Would love some advice thanks Vinny

Steeeve

So chances are Barlow will outscore JJ this week. But looking long term I really like JJ and feel Barlow will continue to let me down. I'd rather trade now and bank the cash, but I'm torn community. Help!!

Patch

Give it another week, Steeeeeevie!

Steeeve

I will. Maybe haha

Jake

Go with your gut mate. Was considering the Barlow to JJ trade myself and ended up getting JJ in another way.

DadSmasher

So chances are Beyonce will drop into Maryborough this weekend and give me a blowy while I sit on the couch watching the footy.

Tulendeena

Reckon I'll keep everyone

Barlow-Hartley is easily do-able next week

HallyM8

To trade Barlow -> Papley & Rockliff -> Liberatore
Or Rockliff -> Papley & Crouch -> Robbie Gray / Parker
Or Rockliff -> Papley & Crouch -> Liberatore
Thanks community

Patch

Libba's a must, HallyM8. The third lot of trades.

Jonny

I've got Barlow, Jacobs and B.Crouch as my main problems.
My first trade will be Gresham > Papley, via BenKen to midfield.

I'm going to hold onto Crouch but am not sure what to do with Barlow and Jacobs, I'm thinking either one to Parker or Blicavs respectively.

Thoughts?

Patch

Hold Jacobs mate – he'll come good. I'm giving Barlow another week but absolutely understand those who want to flick him

Pom

Who to field in place of BCrouch, Hewitt or Menadue? Can't even use BCrouch to loophole dammit!
Also having brought him in this week would people field Papley now McGlynn is back or go Milera?

Patch

I'd pick Menadue, Pom

Damon Bisetto

shut up pom

tom

Rocky to Titch/Gray and Gresham to Papley

or

Barlow to JJ and Gresham to Papley with 137k in the bank

Mac

My conundrum is that JJ is the cheapest he will be all year, but is he the Brodie Smith burn man?

CJudd3Votes

Barlow –> Papley and then using that cash Crouch –> Fyfe. Is this foolish to bring in Fyfe at this stage when he might drop price over the next few weeks or will the points make it worth bringing him in this week? I'm more concerned with rankings which has led me down this path. Thoughts?

Paul

Yeah, probably. There's some other mids that might be better right now.

Paul

I know Barlow is going to go big this week, but I had to get Aaron Hall in the team, it was either Barlow or Greene, and I'm going to back Greene in to keep playing like he did last weekend.

Dice

Does anyone know what Rockliff's breakeven is??

Luke

184

clubber lang

Gresham for Hall or Liberatore?

Paul

In my opinion, you really have to do everything possible to get both ASAP

clubber lang

cheers Paul but i needed to get Papley in so i've had to pick between the two
i'm leaning towards Hall due to his DPP eligibility and i'm not convinced that Liberatore will be a top 10 mid by end of year

i pity the fool i don't trade in…

Paul

Well I'd go Hall now then. Hall vs Carlton VS Libba vs Hawthorn. Hall can go big this week.

derek

Hall might become a top 10 forward, but Libba is along way off being top 10 midfielder

Benjamima Puddleduck

Its not so much he is a long way off, there is so many viable options that could be top 10 this year.

BloodyFranklin

Is anyone else stuck with who to field over Dea and Hartley?

steven

Robbie Gray or Tom Mitchell?

Hayden

Who does everyone think could be the best out of T Mitchell, Parker or Gray or I was thinking risk/reward Zaharakis

JamiesNinjas13

Gray simply because he looks like gary ablett when he plays…

Joel

Oh good Mundy, crouch, Rockliff, Greashem and Dunkley. This round is going to be super.

derek

throw in Wingard and possible Rich…you see my problems

Joel

Oh yeh I got rich too. Good luck Derek

Patch

hahaha good luck, Joel! Got to be the only one with all 5 of those blokes! Got any helpful DPPs?

Joel

Hey patch, just went Gresham to paps and Rockliff to Gray. Swinging menadue in.

murray

Hi Community
Is it a waste of a trade to bring in Ben Kennedy for De Goey and make 146k knowing that kennedy will climb in value quickly and will probably get up to 350k or save the trade and keep de goey who might last 12-13 weeks

Paul

De Goey doesn't look like a 100+ scorer. Kennedy has proven that he is. Don't think twice, bank the money and love the extra points.

Hi Paul
actually I have just heard that B Crouch is out so it might be better to take out B Crouch for Kennedy. Do you agree?

Paul

I have Crouch as well. They're saying it's just hamstring tightness and maybe not an injury yet, so I'm keeping him for now. He's a proven scorer, I don't want to trade him out and then want to get him back later if he's only going to miss a week.

Phil

De goey is in no mans land so I would trade him. Either down to Kennedy or Papley for cash or up to a premium.

Average Joe

Ruggles is on the field, not extended bench so hopefully he gets a decent score and keeps his spot

Decent? 50-60

In 4 of the next 5 weeks freo have kangas crows Hawks and giants who all move the ball quick, how do we see Barlow going against them.

not great – but heck, you never know. It's largely up to Barlow.

Crouch out is forcing me to rethink. I'd traded out Rocky and Barlow for Libba and JJ.

Do I hold Crouch? Do I hold Rocky? Do I hold Barlow? Mundy out has me leaning towards keeping Barlow.

Do I bring in Libba and a premo mid and leave JJ for now? (looking like my preferred option right now)

Preferred premo mids on my watch list are R Gray, GAJ, Blicavs and Parker – any thoughts on which of these?

Help me community – the panic is setting in!

Bring in Libba and let JJ go for now. Give Barlow another crack this week. Then trade rocky out for Gray and put the VC on him for tonights game when he plays lowly Essendon. If Barlow screws up again, you may still be able to do the Barlow-JJ swich next week via dpp. (But only just- make sure you have about 20K spare just in case)
Cheers
