The Rookie Scout: Round 4

Published by Barron Von Crow on

Barron Von Crow

Up and down, peaks and valleys, that’s the life of fantasy footy and it was perfectly evident for us last week with the performances of our rookie selections.

We had some great results from the likes of Jacob Weitering, Darcy Parish and Clayton Oliver, we also had some blokes staining it up with Mitch Brown, Tom Crapley and Connor Menapoo who were all heavily started and who all scored poorly, along with other more experienced players in Sam Kerridge and Ben Kennedy hitting well below their averages.

That’s the caper we’re in however, so you gotta ride out the good with the bad, but since this week is the first price rise in Supercoach it means we may get once last look at making sure we have all the correct rookies set in place, which is what we’re going to help you with here.

Callum Mills

SC Price: $243,000 | AF Price: $253,000 | CoachKings Price: $4,700
Round 3 Stats: 9 disposals, 3 marks, 56 SCPoints, 31 AFPoints, 79 CKPoints

Diminishing returns for Mills in his 3rd AFL game, once again recording lows in most statistical catergories and Supercoach/AFL Fantasy. He seemed to play a bit further up the ground than in his previous two games, but the good sign would probably be that his actual time on ground held up fairly well at 78%. He has a current BE of 19 heading into Round 4, so we’d probably want him to have a really big game soon to give him some more cash generation potential.

 Clayton Oliver

SC Price: $253,100 | AF Price: $274,000 | CoachKings Price: $5,000
Featured CoachKings Contest: Sunday, Melbourne VS Collingwood (VIC VENUES ONLY)
Round 3 Stats: 26 disposals, 4 tackles, 2 goals, 7 clearances, 90 SCPoints, 89 AFPoints, 135 CKPoints

Back to a lot of time in the midfield for Oliver, which showed with the 7 clearances he gained last week, he also snuck forward a few times and managed to have a really good impact on the scoreboard with 2 goals. He did have 5 clangers, which would have had a negative impact on his Supercoach scores, but he is absolutely firing along and still sitting in a negative BE for Round 4. Keep starting him if you own him and lock him in for CoachKings on Sunday.

George Hewett

SC Price: $163,800 | AF Price: $218,000 | CoachKings Price: $4,400
Round 3 Stats: 3 possessions, 4 tackles, 19 SCPoints, 23 AFPoints, 11 CKPoints

It’s an ugly stat line from Hewett, with only 3 touches, all coming in the defensive half when it’s usually the opposite and he’s winning the ball in the attacking 50. That may have been due to the return of Ben McGlynn to the side pushing him down the opposite end of the field. Might be on the chopping block soon.

Ryan Davis

SC Price: $151,500 | AF Price: $197,000 | CoachKings Price: $4,500
Round 3 Stats: 14 disposals, 4 tackles, 2 behinds, 3 marks inside 50, 51 SCPoints, 67 AFPoints, 54 CKPoints

More of the same from Davis in Round 3, but like in Round 1 he failed to take advantage of his opportunities in front of goal, which hurt his fantasy potential for us. At this point it seems we can almost mark down Davis’ scores for the rest of the year. If he hits the goals he could score up in the 70’s, if he doesn’t he’ll be scoring in the 50 range. Not great, but not completely awful either and because he started from so far back starting price wise he still has a BE of -25, so he’ll still be gaining cash for a while yet. I would imagine that being almost 27 years old he isn’t going to suddenly get any better from here on out like a 20 year old might, but he will serve a purpose at least.

Darcy Parish

SC Price: $260,400 | AF Price: $347,000 | CoachKings Price: $4,800
Round 3 Stats: 21 disposals, 1 mark, 4 tackles, 83 SCpoints, 67 AFPoints, 71 CKPoints

Parish continues to favour the handball over kicking, having recorded 23 kicks and 44 handpasses across his 3 games for a near 1:2 kick-handball ratio. That will probably prevent his scores from rising up from the 90’s into the 100+ range, but we’re not keeping Parish for the long haul and he’s still producing terrific results for a 1st year player.


Connor Menadue

SC Price: $192,000 | AF Price: $216,000 | CoachKings Price: $4,800
Featured CoachKings Contest: Friday, Richmond VS West Coast
Round 3 Stats: 18 disposals, 4 marks, 3 inside 50’s, 31 SCPoints, 56 AFPoints, 20 CKPoints

The previously mentioned Menapoo, that’s probably a bit harsh on him because the stats were there, it’s just that he turned Etihad Stadium into Clanger Stadium with 7 clangers. I know a lot of people will be PO’d because they started him on field this week, but just ride out the bad week and hope the kid can get back to his best in Round 4, which he’ll need to do to keep his BE at a reasonable rate.

Sam Kerridge

SC Price: $215,700 | AF Price: $362,000 | CoachKings Price: $5,500
Featured CoachKings Contest: Saturday, Carlton VS Western Bulldogs
Round 3 Stats: 21 disposals, 4 marks, 3 tackles, 4 inside 50’s, 65 SCPoints, 76 AFPoints, 63 CKPoints

Another solid stat line for Kerridge, the problem that is becoming apparent as we move along is that he isn’t getting the time in the middle that he got in the pre-season and Round 1. He fell to a season low 6 contested possessions last week, after recording 10 in Round 1 and 2 and only a single clearance after recording 6 in Round 1 and 6 and 7 in his two NAB Challenge matches. He continues to work hard around the ground, with 20 pressure acts being 3rd best for the Blues against the Suns as he continues to play more along the wings, but he didn’t kick the ball that well in the first half, so it means he doesn’t have those contested stats that boost his scores back up if that happens. I’d just chalk that score up to an average game, rather than a continuing trend for now. I’d suspect at this stage no midfield time will mean no scores above 100, unless he manages to make a decent scoreboard impact as well. A -44 BE means he’ll still have plenty of time left in our sides.

Ben Kennedy

SC Price: $258,600 | AF Price: $291,000 | CoachKings Price: $6,700
Featured CoachKings Contest: Sunday, Melbourne VS Collingwood (VIC VENUES ONLY)
Round 3 Stats: 15 disposals, 2 marks, 3 tackles, 50 SCPoints, 54 AFPoints, 47 CKPoints

A very untidy game for Kennedy, who only had 6 effective disposals out of the 15 he had against North Melbourne. And that’s all you can really say about his score to be honest, he butchered the ball, so his fantasy scores sucked because of it. Still, he had a nice gain of 70K this week and with a BE of -3 could easily be in line for another 50K raise if he has a good game against Collingwood, something I imagine he’d be keen to do considering it’s his former side. He’s risen to a midpriced option in CoachKings, so I wouldn’t have him as a lock there, but he’s certainly an option to consider.

Tom Papley

SC Price: $196,100 | AF Price: $221,000 | CoachKings Price: $5,800
Round 3 Stats: 14 disposals, 1 mark, 1 goal, 3 tackles, 5 clangers, 46 SCPoints, 50 AFPoints, 62 CKPoints

It was an absolutely horrid first half for Papley last week, only recording 4 touches while sitting on about 1 SCPoint at some point in the 2nd quarter.  Papley spent a bit more time down back, which was different from Rounds 1 and 2 where he spent most of his time almost exclusively in the forward 50. That could very well be due to the return of Ben McGlynn who spent most of his time along the forward flanks. If he has a better first half and a few fewer clangers then his score should be better next week. Maybe not 100 points good, but easily above 75. The good news though? He just gained 86K and still has a BE of -40, so don’t panic if you traded him in last week. As long as he keeps playing he’ll still have plenty of cash generation left.

Wayne Milera

SC Price: $201,800 | AF Price: $231,000 | CoachKings Price: $4,400
Round 3 Stats: 12 touches, 1 mark, 1 tackle, 2 goal assists, 39 SCPoints, 41 AFPoints, 42 CKPoints

Milera had a solid game as a Crows fan (legend has it you can still see him dancing around Troy Chaplin at Etihad Stadium), but a disappointing score for fantasy football players who own him. He spent a bit of time across half back in Round 2 and became a bit of a link up player back there, which boosted his possession count up to 20 and his mark to 9, that didn’t really happen last week as he stuck to his usual role at half forward. He continues to show some individual brilliance, but that may not be enough to keep him in Supercoach, but his BE is -3 this week, so I wouldn’t be looking to move him out just yet.

Mitch McGovern

SC Price: $163,800 | AF Price: $194,000 | CoachKings Price: $4,200
Round 3 Stats: 10 games, 3 marks, 1 goal, 5 tackles, 3 inside 50’s, 61 SCPoints, 60 AFPoints, 77 CKPoints

An “almost” game for McGovern last week, in that he almost took a few extra marks and almost kicked an extra goal, things that would have likely boosted his fantasy footy scores much higher. I get the feeling he could just be ready for a breakout game, fantasy footy wise, but maybe that’s just the hopeful Crow fan in me! Either way, he’s still in the negative BE range, and as we’ll say a lot through here, as long as they still have cash generation in them, then as long as they’re playing you’ll have to stick with them.

Lincoln McCarthy

SC Price: $193,300 | AF Price: $204,000 | CoachKings Price: $5,300

Round 3 Stats: 13 disposals, 3 marks, 2 goals, 4 tackles, 96 SCPoints, 64 AFPoints, 107 CKPoints

Sometimes all it takes is 1 game to change the course of a rookie in fantasy football, that game came for McCarthy last week, with a very nice effort in both Supercoach and CoachKings. His BE is now -48, so even if he goes back to that 60-70 scoring range, he’ll still have some use, especially with the likes of McGovern and Papley looking to be in the same sort of scoring range.


Jacob Weitering

SC Price: $289,100 | AF Price: $289,000 | CoachKings Price: $7,000
Featured CoachKings Contest: Saturday, Carlton VS Western Bulldogs
Round 3 Stats: 26 possessions, 9 marks, 3 intercept marks, 2 tackles, 5 rebound 50’s, 129 SCPoints, 106 AFPoints, 173 CKPoints

Last week I said Weitering was likely to jump back to a solid score in Round 3, well when I said that I was expecting a score in the 90’s at most, not the big score he ended up with against the Suns! A very deserving winner of the Round 3 Rising Star nomination, Weitering had a fantastic game and gave Carlton fans just a little taste of what is to come. We can’t expect this every week of course, but it’s certainly good to know he can do it and can also bounce back after a quieter game. We may have missed the boat on Weitering if you don’t have him, it’s not too often a near 300K player has a BE of -27! After last weeks CK score you’d definitely have to consider him on Saturday night.

Matthew Dea

SC Price: $243,500 | AF Price: $252,000 | CoachKings Price: $4,500
Round 3 Stats: 20 possessions, 4 marks, 4 tackles, 4 rebound 50’s, 3 inside 50’s, 95 SCPoints, 80 AFPoints, 119 CKPoints

Matty Dea continues to be rock solid for the Bombers, and may end up being the only cheap rookie priced player that we can trust on a consistent basis from Essendon. Sometimes this is the advantage the more experienced “rookies” have over their 1st-2nd year counterparts. Dea doesn’t have the fantasy upside of someone like Weitering, but there’s a good chance he’ll be a much more consistent option. Either way, Dea is going to hopefully continue to score very well and make cash. Keep starting him on field.

Marcus Adams

SC Price: $226,000 | AF Price: $274,000 | CoachKings Price: $8,400
Featured CoachKings Contest: Saturday, Carlton VS Western Bulldogs
Round 3 Stats: 23 disposals, 15 marks, 1 tackle, 8 intercept possessions, 7 1 %ers, 97 SCPoints, 107 AFPoints, 190 CKPoints

It didn’t take Adams very long to become an elite CoachKings option for us, already moving up to $8,400 in that format while also having the 4th highest CoachKings score in Round 3. There were plenty who worried how Adams would go against the best team in the AFL in Hawthorn, and Adams passed with flying colours. He rose 90K in Supercoach this week and is currently on track for a projected price rise of 108K after this week with his BE at -99(!). If for whatever reason you don’t have him, you need to get him in now!


Not a thing available at the moment.


Michael Hartley – Average game for Hartley last week, but Woosha talked about Nathan Grima potentially being added to the side, which could spell an early for him. If Grima is added and Hartley keeps his spot, then I’d definitely consider him as a downgrade option this week.

Tom Ruggles – Can’t fault Ruggles in his debut game with 77 SCPoints, 76 AFPoints and 104 CKPoints. Chris Scott says it’ll be hard to keep him out of the side. Good signs early.

Ciaran Byrne – Byrne didn’t look out of place last week against the Gold Coast with 20 touches, but he was let down by a disposal efficiency on just 65%. Keep him on your CoachKing radar for Saturday.

Darcy Byrne-Jones – Solid AFL debut game for Byrne-Jones with 61 SCPoints, 48 AFPoints and 77 CKPoints. CoachKingers in SA who get the Port Adelaide VS GWS game on Sunday should consider him if named this week.


Christian Petracca – 31 disposals, 5 inside 50’s and kicked 2.3 for the Casey Scorpions in the opening VFL match. The Scorpions spanked the Frankston Dolphins 179-35, so not much opposition for the Scorps last week.

Ben Keays – 31 disposals, 2 marks and 6 tackles VS Redland in the NEAFL last week. Might be on the verge of a debut, though Mathieson has higher upside from the Lions, but he’s out injured at the moment.

Jono Beech – Still on Adelaide’s rookie list, but they have the scope to bring him up. Averaging 21 possessions, 2 goals and 9 marks through the opening 3 rounds of the SANFL season.

Sam Grimley – Kicked 3.2 last week against Weribee in the opening round of the VFL season. Will remain as a potential option for the Bombers, especially if Mitch Brown fails to provide anything up forward.

Mason Cox – Made an impact in the ruck and up forward for Collingwood in the VFL. 36 hitouts and hit the scoreboard for 1.2.

Nathan Freeman – Returned via the VFL Development League and showed he’s a class above, with 46 disposals in 3 quarters. May take a bit longer to make his debut, but it’s just about getting run into his legs at this stage.

Jade Gresham – Sent back to the VFL with the Sandringham Zebras and had 24 disposals, 7 marks and a goal.

Anthony Moribito – Back with the Peel Thunder in the WAFL last week and he had 23 disposals, 6 marks, 4 inside 50’s and 4 rebound 50’s. We all know he can play, just needs to get a good run of games into him.

James Rose – 20 disposals, 6 marks, 6 tackles and kicked 4.3 for the Swans against the GWS in the NEAFL last week. He had 19 disposals, 6 marks and 3.4 the week before. FantasyFreako thinks he’ll be in line to replace George Hewett this week.

Braydon Fiorini – Good numbers early in the NEAFL with 30 disposals, 8 marks and 2 goals in Round 1, followed by 32 disposals, 6 marks, 5 tackles and 1.2 in Round 2. I like him and he could be in line for a debut, though will be up against the potential returns of David Swallow and Jaeger O’Meara.


And that’ll be it for me this week. Any rookies you’re considering swapping too? Or are you looking to lock in a particular guy in your CoachKings side? Let us know in the comments below, or hit us up on Twitter @BarronVonCrow

Brilliant as always Barron.. spewin Petracca is still a few weeks away

    Derek · 14/04/2016 at 15:03

    Must hold

Kang Van Der Bang · 14/04/2016 at 14:20

is this a good move?



    Chill · 14/04/2016 at 14:25

    No. You chose Wines for a reason. Let him settle into the season. The reason his scores haven't been great is that he's kicking too many clangers.. he will work on this. Also – you have seen Ruggles play ONE GAME. He could stink it up this weekend and get dropped. What will you do then?
    Rich, you can turf. If you were playing him in your backline then pick a replacement keeper and stand by them.

      Derek · 14/04/2016 at 14:45

      Not much love for Rich!

      He scored 104 in the first week, second game he went in with a badly swollen hand, got a big tag and tweeked his hammy. You gotta give him a few more weeks if you already have him.

        Patch · 14/04/2016 at 17:20

        I'd hold Rich – in fact, I'm considering to bring him in in a few weeks. He's in line behind a few others, but he has big upside. With you completely, Derek. Hold Rich.

          Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 18:09

          Plums. Large.

      CJudd3Votes · 14/04/2016 at 16:17

      Rich isn't priced to score 115 every week and as such isnt going to plummet in value, holding him even if only for another week feels a lot safer

Patch · 14/04/2016 at 14:29

Love your work, Mr Von Crow! I'll be holding this week regardless if the Sydney boys are named, but will look to go from Hewett to Ruggles by DPP madness next week, and then have a look at what upgrades I can snag.

    Swans2012 · 14/04/2016 at 14:39

    I'm thinking a similar thing patch, although I've got 340k burning a hole in my pocket from last weeks rockliff to Parker and crouch to papley trades! just think it doesn't hurt to take a breath this week and have one more look at those on the chopping block (for me Sinclair and lonergan). I'll be eyeing off Duncan and the muncher (ruggles) next week I think, provided they look ok this week that is….

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 14/04/2016 at 18:23

      Hoping paps gets a gig this week

      looking at going longeran to shaw next week with paps down to bynre maybe? Depends who goes ok 2nd week in.

        Swans2012 · 14/04/2016 at 20:06

        Yep it's all speculation for now… But God I love speculation

Scotty · 14/04/2016 at 14:34

I'm ranked 102 overall and I'm wondering if the players I trade in over the next few weeks should be POD's in an attempt to push myself even higher or if I should stick to the Parker, Gray etc upgrades that will mean that I'll stick with the rest of the field and hopefully not drop down too much.

Also, where is everybody else ranked???

    jockreynolds · 14/04/2016 at 14:41

    GREAT WORK Scotty! That's magnificent mate!!! Let's just say rank wise.. I'm down in the trenches with my community.

    fatboyfat7 · 14/04/2016 at 15:54

    Great going Scotty, I'm nowhere near you in terms of rank (currently around 3200th) but I've already been thinking along similar lines. POD's or 'must-haves'…. I don't have Ablett or Fyfe but I feel they can wait. I can't answer your question but personally I'll be targetting value in oppose to specific players, if that makes sense. eg, I'm already planning to get Pendles in over next 2/3 weeks when his price is rock bottom, hoping other players around my ranking will be going for the performing premo's, Gray's, Parkers, etc. It could provide me with some POD and better long term use of expenditure. Or else I'm going to bugger my team completely and promptly spiral down the rankings but keep up the good work and good luck!

    Booma · 14/04/2016 at 16:52

    Nice Scotty, like fatboy im siting in the 3000s.. It's hard to say about going with the PODs as it has the potential to swing both ways.. I think the smart move might be to trade in the cookie cutter upgrades & try to make your points up by a unique captains choice. This has the potential to gain you the extra 60-100 points without taking a big risk on PODs players performing badly.

    PS love the write up Barron.

    Mick · 14/04/2016 at 17:08

    Awesome work scotty. Im in a similar boat. I don't have ablett, fyfe, shaw or goldy and ranked 202 and not sure if i should trade now to get them in or wait for the cows to fatten then go for them in 5-7 weeks baring injuries.

    GoHawks · 14/04/2016 at 17:10

    Ranked 403.

    I'm holding tight this week, all rookies should hit break-evens easily. The first cash cows may be traded after round 5, pending there scores in the next couple of weeks.

    In terms of who to trade in, I am watching the premo's that have started to come down in price, the like of-
    Shaw, T.McDonald, Boyd, JPK, Pendlebury, Martin

    All are a few weeks away from bottoming out, but they are firmly on the radar.

    This week looks like a trade free week, next week Ruggles may find his way into my team.

    Keep up the great work, a 102 ranking is amazing.

    BundyBear · 14/04/2016 at 17:27

    Im in the top 100% somewhere

    I N Pieman · 14/04/2016 at 17:32

    Nice one Scotty. If your POD spuds it it will put you behind. If you in contention later in the season then that would be the time to go for it. Unless your thinking of a Zorko type with low ownership

      Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 18:06

      I think Zorko will change from low ownership very quickly though.

    Hayley · 14/04/2016 at 18:42

    Ranked 132 atm. Have the same concern as you as to whether to go the POD's or stick with the tried and trusted. Trying to keep my finger off the trade button this week. Young kids not near their peak, and not really any must have rookies that I don't already have…

    @randomcliche · 14/04/2016 at 20:08

    1 millionth *insert doctor evil voice* my POD of Kreuzer has stunk it up, a captain on Fyfe of 60odd, Dependlebury gone walkabout, crouch and rocky gone on a holiday together, my POD of 500k gone and tweaked a baby cow, my Parker POD not a POD. My peas in a pod not doing so well. I take my hat off to you sir! Now, will you pass me a goldy?

    Turtle · 15/04/2016 at 01:32

    Hi Scotty don't over excite your arousal curve about your early season ranking and get complacent. I'm ranked in the 530's but thats only 92 points behind you (half of 1 bad capt pick) and only 278 from number 1.
    Anybody within the top 40,000 still has a chance to win this

    Marvin · 15/04/2016 at 08:25

    No. You shouldn't give a stuff about PODs at this point of the season. Just pick the players you think are going to score you the most points/make you the most cash and put you in a position to worry about what others are doing in 15 weeks time. Until then just worry about your team

Kev · 14/04/2016 at 14:37

Some arousing numbers coming from the blokes in the twos. Sitting tight this week as the rookies do their job, I can live with playing Davis if Hewett has a spell

JJJ · 14/04/2016 at 14:38

Please help guys.
Currently Out of contention at 12,000ish……..I think?
180k spare before trading this week

Really want to get Adams back to defence and Hall back to Forwards…….

Here's my options;
– Lonergan to premo defender
– 2 of Lonergan, Mills, Crouch to McCarthy + RobbieG
– Bring in 2 cash producers in McCarthy/CalebD/Young for crouch + brown

Laird, Johanneson, Lonergan, Dea, Weitering, Tippa (brown Ruggles)
Gaz, Fyfe, Danger, BCROUCH, Shiel, Libba, Cripps, Hall (Davis, MILLS, Hewett)
Goldy, Nicnat
Buddy, Adams, Wingard, Wells, Benken, Kerridge (Papley, McGovern)

    Patch · 14/04/2016 at 17:25

    Mate – this early in the season, you're never out of contention. Back yourself. If you want to get Adams back, you can trade Longergan for a midfielder by swinging Adams, then swinging Hall. Lonergan could become Shannon Hurn or Brodie Smith or someone of that ilk.

    Or, you can bring in Ruggles or Hartley for Lonergan and grab the cash to go Crouh to Robbie Gray, as you suggested. That side has a huge amount of potential, mate!

Abracadabra · 14/04/2016 at 15:25

Anyone know why i cant access jockreynolds on my wifi? Says my ip has been blocked?

    Lazy Simmo · 15/04/2016 at 15:16

    Same problem! What is going on?

Tommo09 · 14/04/2016 at 15:32

Sitting 954 overall and 2,401 points last weekend. I want to push myself up higher but don't know what to do.

Def: Shaw, Laird, JJ, Weitering, Dea, Adams (AMT, M.Brown)
Mid: Danger, Fyfe, Ablett, Parker, Libba, M.Crouch, Kennedy, Mills (Davis, Gresham, Dunkley)
Ruck: Goldy, Naitanui (Grimley)
Fwd: Martin, Hall, Barlow, Wells, Kerridge, Papley (Menadue, Petracca)

Any ideas are certainly welcome
Thank you in advance.

    Mac · 14/04/2016 at 15:37

    Hold, looks good, trades are important and when injuries come, you will need them

      Tommo09 · 14/04/2016 at 15:42

      Thanks Mac
      Should I wait till next week and get ruggles in??

        Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 15:48

        There's nothing you can actively do to push yourself higher at this point, just hope all your players score well this week.

        4 Donuts is going to hinder you later in the seas though I can see you dropping out of the top 1000 during or after the byes.

          Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 15:48


            Tommo09 · 14/04/2016 at 15:53

            Thank you for that
            It's just I have been playing for 6-7 years and this is the best I've done
            I wanted to keep pushing up

              GoHawks · 14/04/2016 at 17:15

              Hold tight, great position.

              You have the benefit of maximising your score through the use of loopholes in the fwd & mid lines. Also with Petracca playing late the ability to loophole the vice-captain into captaincy is critical.

              Work out your loophole strategy for the weekend, and just sqeeze every last point out of your good team.

    Booma · 14/04/2016 at 16:56

    Agree with Mac & you should hold.. But 4 non scoring/ cash generating rookies is going to take a toll.

tom · 14/04/2016 at 16:13

Any suggestions for my team. Don't think I need to trade this week.

Shaw, Laird, Rich, Weitering, Dea, Adams, Brown, Tippa
Fyfe, Danger, Ablett, Pendles, Gray, Libba, Mills, Kerridge, Davis, Hewett, Menadue
Goldstein, Martin, Wyatt
Barlow, Hall, De Goey, Wells, Kennedy, McCarthy, Papley, Petracca

4k in the bank and 28 trades remaining.

    Cam · 14/04/2016 at 16:27

    You have an awesome team, I love it.
    Only fault is maybe a bit thin in the fwd line but u make up for it every else. Keep it going

Cam · 14/04/2016 at 16:25

I have crouch with 370k in the bank, want an ultra premo and already have gaz fyfe and danger.
I'm thinking it's out of priddis hanners or grey
Grey has been the best so far but surely he can't continue kicking the amount of goals he is.
Any thoughts are appreciated

    BKW · 14/04/2016 at 18:11

    All three are great options, personally I'd go Gray or Priddis

JJJ · 14/04/2016 at 16:43

Please help guys.
Currently Out of contention at 12,000ish……..I think?
180k spare before trading this week

Really want to get Adams back to defence and Hall back to Forwards…….

Here's my options;
– Lonergan to premo defender
– 2 of Lonergan, Mills, Crouch to McCarthy + RobbieG
– Bring in 2 cash producers in McCarthy/CalebD/Young for crouch + brown

Laird, Johanneson, Lonergan, Dea, Weitering, Tippa (brown Ruggles)
Gaz, Fyfe, Danger, BCROUCH, Shiel, Libba, Cripps, Hall (Davis, MILLS, Hewett)
Goldy, Nicnat
Buddy, Adams, Wingard, Wells, Benken, Kerridge (Papley, McGovern

Grahame Lebroy · 14/04/2016 at 16:47

Love the around the grounds section BVC great stuff. Those rookies will prove very valuable when getting rid of the likes of Hewitt, Davis, Brown.

Can I get your thoughts on Lyons from the crows? Seems to be cheaply priced for his SC scoring output but was not in the crows side rounds 1 and 2. Do u think he is in their best 22? Will he hold his spot or do you think he is too risky a pick?

    Kev · 14/04/2016 at 16:53

    A lot of vests so it's hard to get a proper gauge on his point scoring ability. In his full games though he seems to fluctuate between 60-90. If he was 70k cheaper he would be on my radar, but 241k is a bit too midprice

      Grahame Lebroy · 14/04/2016 at 17:10

      He is awkwardly priced. But my gut is telling me he is an ideal stepping stone. I think he can get up to the 350k – 400k mark if he gets games. I want to downgrade B.Crouch, already have Petracca sitting there, don't really want to risk it with Keays would rather use him to replace Hewitt, Davis or Menadue than having him and Petracca not playing. Decisions decisions

        Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 17:29

        Keays should not even be in your thought process.

          Grahame Lebroy · 14/04/2016 at 17:36

          Right now or this year at all?

            Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 17:49

            Well he hasn't played and is highly doubtful to play at all. He was available last week but they chose to play Billy Evans.

            The only way he should be considered is if he gets to play a couple of games first before buying.

              Grahame Lebroy · 14/04/2016 at 17:56

              Yep I wasn't talking as an option right now. Definitely going to wait and see before buying with him. Thanks Southern

                Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 18:17

                I don't think we're going to see him this year, as they didn't play him with Rocky and Rich out.

                And if they did it would probably be fools gold as in maybe 2-3 games then dumped.

    BarronVonCrow · 14/04/2016 at 20:45

    Glad you liked the around the grounds stuff, Grahame.

    History says that Lyons won't hold his spot and I'd suspect unless some other injuries occur then he'd be first out when Brad Crouch comes back. It's disappointing, because I really like Lyons, he's just never had a chance to play consistent minutes in the AFL

      Leeds17 · 15/04/2016 at 05:52

      Might need a move to Carlton ala Kerridge.

      Grahame Lebroy · 15/04/2016 at 10:40

      Thanks for your thoughts on Lyons BVC, might just leave him be for now. You must be happy with how good of brand a footy the crows are playing this year, good stuff. Danger who

mjtay12 · 14/04/2016 at 16:55

Long time reader, first time poster, need the advice of the Community!

Last week i was ranked 89th, but after not having Goldy and enduring the case of Tobias Greene have fallen to 300th.
I have 70k in the kitty and looking to go
Greene to Hartley (if named) via DPP
Menapoo to Zorko.

Good trades?

    GoHawks · 14/04/2016 at 17:18

    its a long season, make sure you dont burn all of your trades early.

    Greene to Hartley is ok.

    Menadue if named is still making money, wouldnt trade him yet – 1-2 more weeks.

      Patch · 14/04/2016 at 17:40

      Agree with Hawker, mate. You could look into Greene to one of the ~400k defenders I keep harping on about (Hurn, Rich, B. Smith, Suckling), as I'm not sold on Hartley's JS now Worsfold's talking about Grima, and Brown looks ahead of him.

        Brent · 14/04/2016 at 18:49

        I have Greene up front and am wondering what to do with him this week, have 97k in the bank. Any tips Patch?

        mjtay12 · 14/04/2016 at 20:48

        Hey Patch, what do we think now Hartley has kept his spot?

    Average Joe · 14/04/2016 at 19:21

    If you have hewett, consider trading him to zorko

Kev · 14/04/2016 at 16:56

You could swing BenKen with Hall? And Brown with Adams?

Dead with your injuries. Crouch gone for 2-3 and Lonergan 1-2 (hold, put Ruggles on the field)

    JJJ · 14/04/2016 at 17:22

    Nah I want hall in forwards with Kennedy, so I can get in another mid.
    Ideally trade out Lonergan, switch Adams to defence and Hall to forwards and decide who to bring in the mids….. Whether I upgrade to a Robbie Gray, or a caleb Daniel and have cash to upgrade elsewhere

Norgy · 14/04/2016 at 17:07

Great article. Will be handy when my rookies start spudding it up.
Also who to trade rocky for? Have 36k cash. Feel like I've missed the boat with parker. Could do two trades to get him to an absolute premium.

The rest of my side is.

Adams,Laird,H Shaw, Weitering,Dea,Suckling, (Ruggles, M Brown)
Danger, Ablett, Fyfe,Cripps,Mills, Menadue,Liberatore, (Hewett,Dunkley)
Hall,Wells,Dusty, B Kennedy,Kerridge,Barlow, (Papley,Tippa)

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 17:28

    You don't need parker and you've already sat on rocky for a week, hold for one more and hope he plays.

Mick · 14/04/2016 at 17:14

Hey community.
Ranked 202 with 143k in the bank and 28 trades (which is with many thanks to all your help)

Team is
D- JJ, KK, Adams, Laird, Seedsman, Weitering ( Dea, Brown)
M – Danger, Hanners, Gray, Zaha, Libba, Parrish, N Graham, Oliver (Mills, Menadue, Davis)
R – Blicavs, Gawn (Grimley)
F – Hall, Dahlhaus, Wells, Marin, B Kennedy, Kerridge (Papley, Tippa)

i know its a very different team to others with none of ablett, fyfe, goldy or shaw so how important are they to get in- asap or just hold for another 5-7 weeks baring injuries, then make money and go upgrade??

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 17:27

    Team is fine wait for cows to fatten.

dean · 14/04/2016 at 17:21

What should be done with wingard and dusty

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 17:25

    Wingard might be back this week and Martin isn't injured?

    GoHawks · 14/04/2016 at 17:28

    Hold if named.

GoHawks · 14/04/2016 at 17:26

I think that Ablett is the only must have out of the 4 players you mentioned, at this stage.

Fyfe, Goldy and Shaw may go down in price over the next few weeks, and are unlikely to increase at all on their current prices, so you can get them in at a later time, once your rookies have appreciated in price.

Whats your plan with Blicavs, I think you should keep him as a ruck with Gawn, and forget about getting Goldy all together, others may want to swing him to a mid8 position, and trade in Goldy. For mine forget Goldy.

richie · 14/04/2016 at 17:28

thoughts on aaron young? thinking a sideways from crouch to young as i dont have the cash to upgrade him to a premo and not confident in downgrading him to a rookie like short who has sketchy job security

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 17:33

    Dicey move, a lot of his scoring is from goals.

    I think the team announcements should shed light on our trade options this week and there may be some surprises.

    Jabba07 · 14/04/2016 at 18:09

    How about Polec?

      Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 18:13

      Nah, the 60 vs saints is worrying.

      The 8 vs Adelaide was shocking. He wasn't injured. Just useless.

      Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 18:14

      If young holds his spot with hartlett and wingard back then I'd lock him in if you want him.

    WithAllDueRespect · 14/04/2016 at 20:13

    I'm thinking of going mills to young myself.

Andy · 14/04/2016 at 17:34

I've got Miles and want to upgrade but to early to drop a rookie! Thoughts?

    Nick · 14/04/2016 at 17:58


Benjamima Puddleduck · 14/04/2016 at 17:51

So C.Enright is looking god damn super sexy for this season, no?

Mr consistent looks like he could possibly finish his career with a bang.
looking very composed in his first three games.

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 18:04

    Enright always solid and very low ownership.

      Gord29 · 14/04/2016 at 18:30

      been rested already though

        Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 18:53

        Well that is the fear of owning enright in his old age. I feared getting him last year due to this fact, and didn't have the plums to lock him in this year either.

          Benjamima Puddleduck · 14/04/2016 at 19:17

          Well, there goes that idea this week.
          I expected him to get rested, not in round 4 though…

          So could potentially be rested round 10/20/22. Easier games the Cats have this year.
          Guess the same goes across the board with all Geelong players.

Nick · 14/04/2016 at 17:54

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 18:10

    Brodie Smith? Docherty? Simpson? Houli is great just throwing in some other options.

      Jabba07 · 14/04/2016 at 18:41

      Hmmm, got me thinking. Brodie working his way off my "never again" list…. Maybe I go Robbie Gray and wait….

Fevolution · 14/04/2016 at 18:09

Got 460k for a player to trade from crouch, worth trading or just hold. Am looking at JJ or B. Smith

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 18:15

    Either one is a good option both are set for a good season.

    Parker will be close this year and you would have to say Fyfe.

Wattsieesq · 14/04/2016 at 18:27

Bit of rookie carnage. McCarthy, Short, Kommer, and Hewitt out

    BarronVonCrow · 14/04/2016 at 20:46

    Thought that was really tough on McCarthy, had a really good game, but obviously they want to try a few other guys out.

SC16 · 14/04/2016 at 18:28

mcveigh in!

Gord29 · 14/04/2016 at 18:32

McCarthy was projected to go up 50k with a game of 60

    SC Shelia · 14/04/2016 at 19:20

    Just have to hold and wait I'm sure he will be back don't gain anything but don't lose anything either. Not sure why he was dropped after after last week after a nice 96 but we aren't the coaches of AFL. Hold him and wait sure he will be back?

      Hawks · 14/04/2016 at 19:54

      Geelong always ease in rookies, likely to have 1-2 weeks in reserved, thn be back for 2-3.

        Gord29 · 14/04/2016 at 20:10

        yea i know and will be holding just would have been good for him to fatten up a bit more before they dropped him

TRIGGER HAPPY · 14/04/2016 at 18:34



And patchs favourite – Hunt

A couple of big outs in that lot in boris and Gibson.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 14/04/2016 at 18:36

oh and Lincoln McCarthy has also been dropped

    BarronVonCrow · 14/04/2016 at 20:47

    Bugger! I thought he had a really good game against the Lions.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 14/04/2016 at 21:12

      Me too can't see why they would drop him.? Coulda gone big against the bombers. 🙁

        Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 21:45

        Maybe pulled up a little sore, easy to rest players vs the top ups, could've been a structural decision, who knows.

        I bet he'll be back next week though.

leviathan · 14/04/2016 at 18:37

Some new promising rookies named this week. Jayden Hunt, Mason Cox, Darcy Tucker, Jarrod Picket, and Jacob Hopper all to debut. On the negative, Lincoln Mc Carthy, Jayden Short, George Hewett, Nick Kommer, and Ryan Crowley all dropped.

Corey Enright, and Josh Gibson two massive outs this week. Chad Wingard, Hamish Hartlett, Steele Sidebottom, Jarrad Mc Veigh, Daniel Rich, Luke Hodge and Tom Lynch all return.

A few cats have been thrown amongst the pidgeons this round!!

    Average Joe · 14/04/2016 at 19:35

    Most of the new rookies you named are named on the extended bench, and could very well get dropped

Nicholas · 14/04/2016 at 18:45

Do we just hold hewett and mccarthy?

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 18:50

    I'm trading Hewett because i need a fall guy from the midfield. McCarthy I am keeping I feel he'll be back.

    Corey Enright being managed……………can see him taking Ruggles spot next week and he's only being rested because they are playing the top ups.

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 19:01

    Actually scratch that might keep him after all.

    I will have to summon the SC gods to get answers for this one……………….

      Nicholas · 14/04/2016 at 19:05

      Im still unsure with rich as if i downgrade him to hartley then i can upgrade crouch to parker

Paul · 14/04/2016 at 18:49

McCarthy out sucks. Just had his best game of the year and was considering putting him on the ground against the pus like Bombers.

Holty · 14/04/2016 at 18:51

Im probably the only person happy McCarthy isnt playing. I now have a loophole.

    @randomcliche · 14/04/2016 at 21:24

    Yep, that would be correct sir. Although, only 38k own him…so perhaps there are at least one or two happy at the loss of others…

Sean · 14/04/2016 at 18:57

Thinking of swapping Lonergan and Sheridan to Hartley and Parker via DPP shenanigans. Not sure if it's a waste.

Jojo · 14/04/2016 at 18:59

How long will Gibson be out for

shammers · 14/04/2016 at 19:03

Looking to downgrade B Crouch but not sure who to go with. Had a look at the team sheets this week and the only cheap option I could find was Liam Sumner from Carlton priced at 124k. Didn't play NAB Challenge so I have no clue whether this guy is any decent or not. Need your thoughts community, should I risk it with this guy or go for another rookie that has already made some dosh, priced around the 200k mark????


    Boltons Blues · 14/04/2016 at 19:23

    Hold, wait for Petracca or Keyes to get a call up, Crouch isnt losing money sitting on the bench
    provided you dont have these 2 and have bench cover

    Crowmagnon · 14/04/2016 at 19:28

    Hartley via DPP?

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 19:29

    Nothing in warchest will make us do silly things like consider some kid from carlton on his first game. forget it.

    Unless you can do a trade and move some players to get a defender like hartley?

    Leeds17 · 14/04/2016 at 21:08

    Has some ability, bit of class with his disposal but not a big getter of the ball, wqit and see.

Baggy Pants · 14/04/2016 at 19:04

Barlow named on the bench, possibility he could miss the cut.
Being the last game of the round makes it a difficult call. What does the community think, trade or keep?

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 19:12


    vkvkvk · 14/04/2016 at 21:34

    Just traded for R Gray via DPP. Bleeding cash. On the fringe of best 22. Freo on the slide. May get the odd 90 – 100 game here or there. But certainly not a top 6 fwd/premo and no longer SC relevant. Seeya Michael…don't let the door hit you on the arse on the way out son.

Jackwatt$ · 14/04/2016 at 19:04

Help! How do you reverse trades? I traded in McCarthy already as a premium, for Papley (lasted 1 week, that went well, not) But now McCarthy is out and I'd rather Spudley back but can't find the button. I'm using a brand new iPhone if that helps

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 19:11

    Wait you're trying to reverse last weeks trades?

    Rick Grimes · 14/04/2016 at 19:11

    Look at bottom right. There is an icon you can press which has option to reverse trades.

    Crowmagnon · 14/04/2016 at 19:11

    look for the little funnel/Olympic torch looking thing in the bottom right corner. or an arrow next to the analyser tab at the bottom.

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 19:27

    Don't trade McCarthy.

    Jackwatt$ · 14/04/2016 at 19:29

    You guys are lifesavers thanks a billion! Now who to trade Papley to (insert confused emoji)

    PS I don't have McCarthy!

      Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 19:31

      Keep papley?

    Click the filter button (button in the bottom right corner) when looking at your team and reverse changes will come up

Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 19:05

He's not playing for certain at this stage as they name the interchanges for Saturday games. There could be a late change but it's doubtful. Hold him though he'll be back.

They might be resting him for the sole reason they are playing the top ups and they want him 100% for next week.

Holty · 14/04/2016 at 19:07

Just 4 rounds in and players are being rested. Ridiculous. At least its not as bad as poor Utah in the NBA. They needed Houston to lose their last game to be in the playoffs and Houstons opponents rested their starting 5 plus 3 bench players for the last game. That should not be allowed to happen if it affects finals outcomes.

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 19:10

    To be fair it's the top ups many good teams will rest players against them.

      Holty · 14/04/2016 at 19:30

      this is very true. just feel sorry for the Supercoaches holding these players.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 14/04/2016 at 21:18

May as well just bench him now and forget the loophole!

    lol. its either him or AMT. Needas much help as i can get

Crowmagnon · 14/04/2016 at 19:20

how many non players on the bench is everyone prepared to live with?
I now have 4 Hewitt, Gresham, McCarthy and Goetz(r3).
Is Hewitt to Hartley a waste?
opinions please community

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 19:26

    I'm prepared to live with 2.

    I'm almost ready to trade Hewett as I feel it's gonna be tough for him to get back in without a couple of injuries occurring.

    Got Rohan coming back in a couple of weeks…….which makes it even tougher. Wouldn't surprise me if he leaves most teams this week, probably mine included come tomorrow.

    Phil · 14/04/2016 at 19:34

    The problem is there aren't great options to trade to. I'll trade Hewitt/Gresham who a good option presents itself. I don't wanna trade a dud rookie to another.
    In your situation I'd hold Gresham (named Eme) McCarthy and Goetz. I'd strongly consider Hewitt to Hartley. Hartley is okay, but I already have him.

Pinidu · 14/04/2016 at 19:22

Community, I've got Nic Nat, Ablett and Danger as my captaincy option this week.

I have three options:
VC Nic Nat, Captaincy backup Danger
VC Nic Nat, Captaincy backup Gaz
VC Danger, Captaincy backup Gaz

Which one is best? Nic Nat is a POD selection and is playing Richmond minus Maric at Subiaco…maybe a 150-160 on the cards for the big eagle?

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 19:24

    No.3 all the way for me.

      Just remember, the loophole can burn you if you are left with no emergency due to a late withdrawl.

        @randomcliche · 14/04/2016 at 21:32

        Thinks of all the emergency burns….*shuddders*….timely reminder…..

    Russ · 15/04/2016 at 00:30

    Doesn't have to be an "average" player's score though Andrew, for example, this week I will make Naitanui Vice Captain and leave the C on Gaz, if Nic smashes it out of the park on Friday, I'll swap Gaz with Gresham and put the C on Gresham with Gaz on the bench.
    Then when Gresham scores nothing as Captain, double points goes to the Vice Captain, Nicnat..and Gaz's score still counts because he's emergency for Gresham.

Rambos_Radish · 14/04/2016 at 19:38

Any thoughts on Hewett to Hartley (via dpp) just for cash generation sake? Or not worth the trade?

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 19:47

    Could pay off I think it'll be hard for Hewett to get back in after his last two performances and McVeigh coming back, also Gary Rohan may be back in two weeks.

    bUCKET__ · 14/04/2016 at 22:22

    Was thinking the same, but Worsfold talking about the possibility of Grima coming in has me spooked. Even if Hewett doesn't come back in, it's a big risk of a wasted trade if Hartley isn't going to make a significant amount of cash.

Average Joe · 14/04/2016 at 19:41

Player 1 – The non playing player
Player 2 – Player on the bench
Player 3 – Player on the field

NOTE: for this to work, one of player 2 and 3 have to play before player 1, while the other has to play after player 1

Put player 1 on field for player 3 (Must play before player 1)
Put 'E' on player 3
If player 3 gets a good score, keep him as the E
If player 3 gets a crap score, sub player 2 on field for player 1

Hope this helps

derek · 14/04/2016 at 19:45

any updates on BCrouch? is he still listed 2-3 weeks?

    SC Shelia · 14/04/2016 at 19:51

    Yep 2-3 weeks

      derek · 14/04/2016 at 21:09


      just tinkering with the idea of BCrouch to Griffin?

        derek · 14/04/2016 at 21:12

        a little left-field, but with Sandi gone down, i think he will be the #1 ruck.

        I can put him in the forward line and loophole him with Lobbe via Wyatt (Lobbe plays before Griffin for the next few weeks)

        probably won't do it, but just thinking out loud 😉

          Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 21:43

          I wouldn't touch him with a barge pole at 300k.

          He's an average 60 player so priced accordingly and will be dumped at the first opportunity for Sandi, won't be a stepping stone of any sort, waste of two trades.

            Derek · 14/04/2016 at 21:50

            Just tinkering
            What about Crouch to Hartley and Lobbe to Blitz

    MY TWO CENTS · 15/04/2016 at 08:51

    YEP. Still injury prone and where I thought he would b. Out of the team sitting on the sidelines with an injury.

Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 19:46


Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 19:50

Yep get rid of him, too much of a liability.

Crowmagnon · 14/04/2016 at 19:52

Even if he is back in 2 weeks, how long for? Not the most durable, it seems. Pull the trigger.

Hawks · 14/04/2016 at 19:53

Parker & Ward could be top 8, I think

Hawks · 14/04/2016 at 20:04

Papley or M.McGovern on-field?

BennyGan · 14/04/2016 at 20:04

Have no major issues this week I need to fix just like to get people's thoughts on
Zac Smith to Maxy Gawn

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 22:25

    Luen isn't exactly the pushover everyone thinks he is either, sure he doesn't score well in SC but he does ok for himself.

      BennyGan · 14/04/2016 at 22:31

      Yeah well no ruckman has tonned up against them yet this year, Nicholls 95, Gawn 85 and Lobbe 60

Crowmagnon · 14/04/2016 at 20:07

Swans have smashed Crows in last couple of matches. Hate to say it but probably Papley.

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 20:13

    Haven't played crows in Adelaide since 2014 though. Last game was at the SCG.

    McGovern for me, although Sydney do seem to play well against crows the teams have changed a fair bit over time.

jack · 14/04/2016 at 20:07

Trade trent Mckenzie for Callum Sinclair (via sub with forward), or downgrade to sumner or ruggles?

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 22:17

    Personally not a fan of any of the 3 options.

JJJ · 14/04/2016 at 20:11

I've got a crazy idea but could work long term. I've got alot of the cash cow rookies and 180k spare.
Would be super easy to bring in gray or Parker this week, but would this be a better option;

BCrouch to Aaron Young
Brown to Caleb Daniel

The theory behind this is to let 70% of my players appreciate ALOT then only require single trades to premos. I'm overseas for 2 weeks on Monday too so unlikely to burn trades during this time. Could be 2 great PODs and I don't mind steering away from the boring norm at times.

Young is averaging 100 and has a -50B/E.
Caleb could end up being a F6 if he keeps playing like last week and he's due for price rises too.
The team below is what it would look like with these trades complete; please talk me into or out of this depending on your thoughts.

Laird, Johanneson, Lonergan, Dea, Weitering, Adams (Tippa, Ruggles)
Gaz, Fyfe, Danger, Shiel, Libba, Cripps, Kerridge, YOUNG (Davis, MILLS, Hewett)
Goldy, Nicnat
Buddy, Hall, Wingard, Wells, Benken, CALEB (Papley, McGovern

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 20:18

    Like Daniel but what if he doesn't become a keeper? Awkward price and could end up costing two trades.

    Aaron Young same story will end up costing 2 trades, and I'm not even convinced by this guy. Horrible DE int he NAB, has two good scores due to goals.

      JJJ · 14/04/2016 at 20:29

      Awesome thanks for the feedback. What would you do with this team? I've looked at it for 4 days and it's getting fuzzy….. Lol

      Laird, Johanneson, Lonergan, Dea, Weitering, Tippa (Brown, Ruggles)
      Gaz, Fyfe, Danger, Shiel, Libba, Cripps, Kerridge, BCrouch (Davis, Mills, Hewett)
      Goldy, Nicnat
      Buddy, Hall, Wingard, Wells, Benken, Adams (Papley, McGovern)

        dognino · 14/04/2016 at 21:29

        Do nothing, let cows fatten

        Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 21:39

        You could do crouch/hewett out to Hartley via DPP but that will leave you pretty light in defense.

        It'll mean you have a fair bit of cash to upgrade crouch/hewett to a gun, instead of buying two mid price risks.

        The big problem I see with these trades is you may end up with ruggles and a bomber or two out in a worse case scenario.

        Essentially what I'm saying is trade out Crouch and Hewett, swing ben ken/wells into mid and trade in Hartley and a midfield gun. ie Parker if you can afford him.

Nicholas · 14/04/2016 at 20:25

Hey community once again needing some relevant supercoach advice for my team.

Backs: Laird, Bartel, JJ, Weitering, Dea, Rich (Brown, AMT)
Mids: Danger, Fyfe, Ablett, Gray, Wines, Libby, B Crouch, B Ken ( Mills, Hewett, Davis)
Rucks: Gawn, Nic Nat (Cox)
Forwards: Hall, Barlow, Wells, Adams, Kerridge, papley (McCarthy, Menadue)

Was thinking Rich to Hartley/ Ruggles and Crouch up to Parker which leaves my midfield nearly complete for the season and some more cash generation. However now that rich was named and mccarthy and hewett havnt been named im unsure what to do.i want crouch out 100% to a premo because i dont want to have to rely on mills and b ken in the centre who could pull out 60's. Really stuck this week so please help me out. A side note I currently have $128200 in the bank.

    Keenbutclueless · 14/04/2016 at 23:17

    Don't trade. You have strong cover in Mills. Effectively you are trading because you fear losing 30 points in one week. I think it is a waste.

      Nicholas · 15/04/2016 at 00:13

      If barlow isnt named should I downgrade barlow and upgrade crouch or the other way around or something? And this could be my last chance to bring in parker at a cheap price. Also these 3 donuts on the bench that I have could suddenly pile up and screw me over

    Derek · 15/04/2016 at 09:21

    Crouch to BSmith

      Nicholas · 15/04/2016 at 12:33

      So bring rich mid?

Josh · 14/04/2016 at 20:32

Buy Clayton Oliver or Darcy Parish?

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 21:55


Andy · 14/04/2016 at 20:53


Jacko · 14/04/2016 at 20:58

Help Please!
Stuck with bloody B Crouch, only got an extra 12k and bench cover is limited to Davis, what to do?

    vkvkvk · 14/04/2016 at 21:40

    Jacko, I'm in same boat – am thinking I'll hold for another week. Davis will get as a steady 65 each week then down grade Crouch to Petracca.

      Jacko · 14/04/2016 at 21:42

      Yeah good plan, only issue is petracca is already on my bench! and no other rookies have taken my fancy unfortunately

Cliffy · 14/04/2016 at 21:19

Hey guys,

Here’s my team following up after Rd 3:

Def: Shaw, Houli, Bartel, Weitering, Adams, Dea (Brown, Hartley)

Mids: Ablett, Fyfe, Danger, R.Gray, Wines, Wells, Libba, Mills (Menadue, Hewett, Davis)

Ruck: Martin, Gawn (Wyatt)

Fwd: Hall, Barlow, Greene, Kerridge, Papley, B.Kennedy (McDonald-Tipungwuti, McCarthy)

I’m pretty inclined to hold off trading this week after going Gresham – Papley and Rocky – R.Gray, scoring extremely well for Rd 3 and additionally because there is no key carnage for me this week in terms of in’s and out’s.

But my trade finger is still itchy on the likes of Greene. I could potentially go via DPP trading moving Greene into the back line and grabbing Laird or Johannisen and cut my losses now, while moving Adams up to the Fwd line in this move. Means I am playing another rookie in my Fwds though.

What do you guys think?

Should I cut my losses with Greene and go for it, or hold fire and give Greene another chance?

Cheers guys

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 21:50

    Only has a BE of 80 could give him another shot.

Max · 14/04/2016 at 21:27

Lonergan to weitering? Worth it?

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 21:46

    It's a tough call and if you don't get him this week then forget about it. I'd say the boat has already sailed honestly.

    BKW · 14/04/2016 at 21:53

    Nope – missed the boat on weitering

Kevin Skywalker · 14/04/2016 at 21:41

I'm really concerned about Barlow. He's listed on the extended bench for the last match of the round and I think the reason for this is that Ross is concerned about Barlow's impact without Sandilands giving their midfield first use. He looks slow and I fear that he won't be to compete against an opposition midfield that gets that first touch and clearance. We've also seen that he's not much value in the forward line. But then I don't like any alternative trade ins. Decisions,decisions

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 21:52

    I'm taking the risk and sticking with him at this point. Sure he's had a slow start bu 100 last week wasn't too bad I'm sure he'll get the gig we'll see how it goes.

    If he doesn't get named then he's out next week and at least our hand will be forced rather than us making a decision we could regret.

      Dee · 14/04/2016 at 22:23

      he's getting dropped this week… glad I got rid of him last week.

Foti186 · 14/04/2016 at 21:43

What does everyone think of dalhaus?

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 21:54

    I heard he's a decent bloke.

    Mick · 14/04/2016 at 21:58

    Wait. Too early to call.

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 22:09

    He's very consistent but you might be able to grab him later for a lower price, maybe just before finals as a POD.

tim · 14/04/2016 at 21:49

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 21:54

    Mick · 14/04/2016 at 21:59

    Jack Stevens for sure. Classy & room for improvement.

Mick · 14/04/2016 at 21:57

Joel Selwood as a top 8 midfielder .It's a gut feel & like the cats draw. Your thoughts.

    Derek · 14/04/2016 at 22:04

    Yep. He is in my top 8.

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 22:08

    Interesting thought but I feel there's these guys all ahead of him (by the end of the season)

    T Mitchell
    S Mitchell

      Derek · 14/04/2016 at 22:41

      My top 10 are

      Fyfe, Gaz, danger, Priddis, Pendlebury, JPK, Selwood, rocky, Gray, Sloane

        Average Joe · 15/04/2016 at 10:48

        Interesting with your sloane pick there, can I hear your reasoning as to why he will score well?

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 22:12

    Although pendlebury maybe not if he keeps going like he is, and sam mitchell could drop off a little, and/or get rested.

      Mick · 14/04/2016 at 22:21

      True. Cheers

        Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 22:23

        He could easily be up there in the top 8 though if back to his best.

    Buster · 14/04/2016 at 22:50

    No mate. Love the guy but times up.

      Holty · 14/04/2016 at 23:16

      he is only 27 years old. How can time be up?

    Holty · 14/04/2016 at 23:17

    He has been one all his career. Had a bad year last. I have him as he will be top 10.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 15/04/2016 at 08:53

    Are you talking Avg or points scored?

    If points scored I don't think rocky or fyfe make the 8.

HOLLA · 14/04/2016 at 21:57

I have maccaffer, Gresham, hewitt and mccarthey. Do a trade one of these out? Can go any rookie to any premo. But also have the problem of t.mckenzie…
Any solutions?? I have 527k to burn

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 22:14

    Macaffer is probably playing.
    Mccarthy has been playing fine and will return.
    Gresham should get another go at the saints hopefully, considering they are a rebuilding side.
    Trade Hewett.

      HOLLA · 14/04/2016 at 22:27

      Yeah was thinking trade hewett to a premo then… hold mckenzie or sideways to fantasia or reid. Or wait a week and see what the other DEF rookies produce.

    Southern S · 14/04/2016 at 22:26

    You need Mckenzie out too, he's not a gun and is out for a few.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 14/04/2016 at 22:27

    Out of that lot trade hewett as probably unlikely to get back in the swans team unless he blitzs in the magoos.

    Gresham and mccarthy and caf all on emer bench. Hewett however has disappeared.

    Think u gotta trade mckenzie.

Derek · 14/04/2016 at 22:07

Cats play Essendon this week

    BennyGan · 14/04/2016 at 22:14

    Yeah but his time in the ruck concerns me, Stanley and him have been sharing the load about 50/50

Damian Durran · 14/04/2016 at 22:19

should I keep Rich, I know he is back in this week…. I want to trade him out for Gray, thoughts?

Win5 · 14/04/2016 at 22:25

Thoughts or advice on potential trades or hold trades.
Def: Shaw, Rich, Seedsman, Weitering, Adams, Dea, Tippa, Brown
Mid: Ablett, Fyfe, Danger, Priddis, R Gray, Libba, Kerridge, Mills, Oliver, Hewitt, Davis
Ruck: Gawn, Nat, Grimley
For: Dusty, Wells, Barlow, Papley, B Kennedy, Hall, McCarthy, Menadue

    Hawks · 14/04/2016 at 22:33

    Maybe Menadue to Hartley via swing.

    Also means you will have the fwd/def swing set in place.

Damian Durran · 14/04/2016 at 22:49

I been thinking about this all week…. the question is will Rich finish as a top 6 defender, I know Gray is a top 8 midfielder. I should just do it….

Davonaise · 14/04/2016 at 22:59

Enright getting a rest against Essendon and Gibson Out this week too

Now other coaches turn for pain

Dee · 14/04/2016 at 23:01

6 – 7 weeks

Bobby · 14/04/2016 at 23:08

S Gray or Spudlow to Zorko?

    Average Joe · 15/04/2016 at 10:46

    Barlow is useless when he isn't in the midfield, and when mundy comes back he will prob go back to scoring 60s

Roger · 14/04/2016 at 23:10

GCS Tom lynch anyone??
Any Suns fans seen him play??

    Hawks · 14/04/2016 at 23:20

    im not a Suns fan, but have seen each of their matches. lynch has been fantastic, out marks 2 defenders regularly. Best key forward in the game at the moment, just ahead of Josh Kennedy (WCE) & Buddy IMO.

JJJ · 15/04/2016 at 00:04

Stiff it…… POD week……
Lonergan and BCrouch to Tom Lynch (GCS) and caleb Daniel

    Dom VB · 15/04/2016 at 10:44

    Worst trade idea I've ever seen

      JJJ · 15/04/2016 at 10:59

      Because it's not the stock standard Robbie or Parker move??
      Being different could pay off, or not.
      If lynch kicks 8 against Carlton I'll be laughing this week

        Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:05

        Not the worst trade idea I've ever seen. Different, could actually pay off.

        That saying I wouldn't do it personally, but like the way suns are going so Lynch will get plenty of ball up forward, and there's no denying Caleb Daniel's ability just not sure he'll do that every week.

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 15/04/2016 at 11:11

        I can guarantee lynch won't kick 8 again Carlton this week but could be a big chance to kick a bag against the Lions 🙂 The way they r developing and with that midfield giving him silver platter service can see lynch being one of the top fwds this year. Will easily outscore Barlow.

Big Bob Francis · 15/04/2016 at 01:56

Great write-up and thread Baron Von Carn the Crows and discussion community. Need some advice on two of my players – Jordan De Goey and Jared Polec – thinking they might need to be sent round the back of Jock's bungalow. Have 27 trades remaining. 78k in the bank. Ranking 7500.

Team is

Laird, Docherty, McDonald, Johannisen, Weitering, Adams (McDonald-Tipungwiti, Brown)
Danger, Fyfe, Ablett, Priddis, Gray, Wells, Mills, Davis (Keays, Dunkley,……Polec)
Blicavs, Gawn (Loersch)
Wingard, Hall, Kennedy, Kerridge, Menadue, McGovern (Papley, …..DeGoey)

By trading Polec and DeGoey will build up the cash reserves. Are they worth keeping? Maybe bring in a Ruggles? Build the extra cash to bring in a bigger player next week? Are these two blokes likely to fire off a shot anytime soon?

    Kev · 15/04/2016 at 07:41

    Why are you looking at trading those two, Big Bob? Polec was massive last week and degoey has had two games of 80+. Hold

Northerner · 15/04/2016 at 05:58

This year has certainly been the year of the rookie defenders. One on the bubble this week and a big batch looming for next week. Just when most of our back rookies are going well to OK. Where are the batch of mid rookie upgrades that we are all waiting patiently for?

Pickle · 15/04/2016 at 06:44

Hello community, I am in a pickle. I have J Gibson, T Mckenzie and B Crouch. I am reluctant to trade this week as I am yet not convinced of any of the available rookies however with J Gibson out I may be forced to. I missed Weitering… is it to late to chase that car? I am also debating trading Mckenzie and Crouch to Hartley/Ruggles and Gray but I feel like their is still some upside to Mckenzie and Crouch both could be back in a week or 2. Final option is to hold fire and hope that Brown and Tipungwiti can pull through for me. What to do community?

    Kev · 15/04/2016 at 07:33

    I'd hold fire. As great as Weiters has been, he's not a keeper. If you must trade gibbo go sideways to another premium.

    Personally I'd flick Crouch. You picked him to earn coin as a stepping stone and he isn't doing that

    Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:03

    Use your bench, keep Gibbo.

    Trade Crouch if you want, he could be 3 weeks.

Win5 · 15/04/2016 at 06:59

Is Hewett to Hartley a good trade this week. I do have bench cover with Davis, Mills? That's the only trade considering at the moment. Advice?

    Kev · 15/04/2016 at 07:30

    Use your bench, Win. Don't reckon Hartley is the best option.

    Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:02

    I'd say hold too, but I have a gut feeling we won't be seeing Hewett for a while.

shemmistwarehouse · 15/04/2016 at 07:42

hi community, i have both mccarthy and hewett in my side and thinking that getting hartley and ruggles into my team would be good. but if i trade hewett i would then have to have rich in the midfield. is this worth it? eventually i would then move rich back to defense. thinking hartley this week and ruggles next if he does well enough

    Kev · 15/04/2016 at 09:03

    Definitely keep McCarthy mate, he'll be back and with a b.e of -47 he still has a lot of coin to make. If Ruggles has another strong game this week he will be in must have territory

      Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 10:41

      Not sure if ruggles will be in must have territory due to the cats backline being pretty darn good.



      Then other guys competing for spots like Ruggles, Kolo etc etc

      Just don't see it.

    shemmistwarehouse · 15/04/2016 at 15:19

    think i should hold mccarthy and then wait a week to watch ruggles, snd if he performs bring him in for hewett? or go for hartley now

Kev · 15/04/2016 at 07:43

If Gray can clean up his d.e he's getting enough of the pill to post some high scores

Holty · 15/04/2016 at 08:30

Jack Steele to Danger, BANG.
I think ive already said this in a earlier post but it sounds so good I wanted to say it again.

    SCaddict · 15/04/2016 at 10:35

    Yep just whack the VC on Danger if you can and just sit back and enjoy the weekend. Your team feels so much better with him in it.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 15/04/2016 at 11:14

    Jeepers holt.! Big move not starting danger. Ahh well at least now you've got him. Enjoy the show.

Adam · 15/04/2016 at 08:40

Hi Community,

I have a dilemma…
Im currently down top 27 trades and with hewett out this round i want to dispose of him for the more appropriate pick of either Hartley or Ruggles

Please Help

    Holty · 15/04/2016 at 08:54

    not sure about eithers job security. Ruggles has another week so no urgency on him. I have both Gresham and Dunkley on my bench. But I will hold them hoping for them to get more games or only trade them for a must have rookie with job security. Not sure if Id waste a trade on the 2 mentioned as better rookies will come along.

Tophawk · 15/04/2016 at 09:30

When exactly will we get confirmation if Barlow will make the cut on the extended bench? If he does not play he is OUT of my side also.
That will be the "final straw" as far as I am concerned.

I hope we will know by Saturday morning at the latest as it will give me more player trading options. (Except for wce and richmond players).

Does anyone know?

    Holty · 15/04/2016 at 10:03

    later tonight. I think by 6:30 should be updated

    SCaddict · 15/04/2016 at 10:32

    Actually it should be around 5pm later today so you'll have plenty of time to make any adjustments required before tonight's game.

      Is everyone dropping Barlow if he gets cut today?

        Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 10:45

        I am, there's just no point holding him too many cons and little pros to the situation.

        SCaddict · 15/04/2016 at 11:09

        I have bigger fish to fry with Crouch this week so I'll be likely holding Spudlow regardless. I could also use him for loophole purposes too in my midfield so will deal with him next week if he gets dropped. Can then always turn him into Mitch Duncan if there aren't any better options at that point.

        Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:14

        I'm going to ditch Crouch and Barlow. Don't care if my warchest fills up a bit either. (Even though it's overflowing)

@footy_bec · 15/04/2016 at 09:33

I'm currently holding B.Crouch. I have around 530k I could spend on upgrading him but not sure if anyone that price will be a top mid. Do I wait and downgrade him to a rookie when one pops up or upgrade him this week? I have 28 trades.

    Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:12

    I'd hold or make some cash by trading crouch out with a DPP trade to get Hartley.

sammy · 15/04/2016 at 09:49

does anyone know the relevance between points trades money ..i.e.what each is worth to the other..I know I have davis and can trade rocky to zorko so increasing my overall by 60 but is a trade worth 60 given rocky will be back next week similarly I have an exact replica of the current no. 1 team excpt rocky and barlow who I have kept if I trade both to prem such as gray /martin would I be better off with two less trades I am probably not explaining it too well thanks from a newbie trier

    Average Joe · 15/04/2016 at 10:45

    Some people think that a trade is worth 150k, and 1 point is worth I think around $5,400

Andy · 15/04/2016 at 09:53

Help please! I have Miles and can straight swap him for Zaharakis or zeibell or trade Menadue out for an unknown and get a Jack or Shiel?

    Kev · 15/04/2016 at 10:39

    I'd hold. He is easily best 22 but hasn't had a great start to the year (and he's not alone at tigerland). Once Maric returns it will make life a bit easier for him

      Andy · 15/04/2016 at 11:00

      Only issue is I've got no bench cover!

    Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 10:44

    Don't like the options personally, Shiel could be ok I guess.

    Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:11

    What about Viney?

      Andy · 15/04/2016 at 11:17

      Zaharakis scoring better. Viney to inconsistent. Don't know, how frustrating !

        Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:24

        I got zaha last week for cheap. Not sure I'd get him now for the price.

        You're right about Viney but he goes hard and just thought I'd suggest a POD.

Wizard of Ertz · 15/04/2016 at 10:10

Do you have Goldy? If not, i would use all that cash and some DPP swings to try and find a way to get Goldy in – i can't see him getting any cheaper for a while. I have a bit of cash, but not that much, so am tossing up going Crouch to either Parker or J Selwood – leaning towards Selwood as a POD and Geelong's reasonably favourable draw. Anyone have any thoughts?

    @footy_bec · 15/04/2016 at 10:21

    I don't have Goldy, but I currently don't have the money for him either. I only have 530k to spend it total after I get rid of B.Crouch. I think Selwood is a better player than Parker. Although Parker has started very well, I don't know if he will have the consistency of a Selwood long term.

@RealGreekMamba · 15/04/2016 at 10:20

I took a flyer on Devon Smith and its backfired big time.

I'm thinking using my spare bank to go to R Gray via DPP or upgrading him to Z.Merrett.

    Kev · 15/04/2016 at 10:35

    He definitely needs to go. Gray is flying at the moment, but either option would be a good one

Shake n bake · 15/04/2016 at 10:33

Was thinking crouch to Selwood really think with a few games under his belt will only get better. Thoughts?

    Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 10:43

    Not sure he had a pretty down year last year and there's a lot of guys that share the ball there like guthrie and duncan. Think he'll have his big games and his not so big just last year.

Tim · 15/04/2016 at 10:33

I didn't start with Dangerfield, should I be bringing him in this week even though I would have to make some drastic changes to my team to bring him in or should I hold my trade this week and wait for him to drop in price.

    Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 10:42

    Drastic changes sound a bit extreme. Stick by your choices.

    SCaddict · 15/04/2016 at 10:44

    With the Dons next on the menu I wouldn't expect much of a price drop any time soon.

    Ben · 15/04/2016 at 12:11

    Is this a good trade?
    Barlow to Dangerfield through Ben Kennedy midfield swing and then Sam Gray down to jarred Lyons? Or this just chasing danger to much and should just wait on him a bit more

Tommo09 · 15/04/2016 at 10:43

Have Gresham and Dunkley sitting on the bench not playing…
I don't want donuts but I don't know who to trade to???
Any ideas???
I also have many fwd/mids in my forwards which I can switch into the mids.

    Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 10:46

    Warchest empty?

      Tommo09 · 15/04/2016 at 10:59

      $104k left so not enough for an upgrade

        Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:07

        Can you do a DPP trade and get Hartley in?

          Tommo09 · 15/04/2016 at 11:10

          Yes that's a good move
          Should I wait for Ruggles??
          And who is more likely is play Gresham or Dunkley??

            Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:18

            Not convinced with ruggles job security.

            Lonergan didn't play last week, this week it's enright out.

            If their 'premiership' backline is in ,there's no place for ruggles.

            Enright / Lonergan / Henderson
            Bartel / Taylor / Mackie

            Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:19

            I think Gresham is more likely to play, but it's a gamble. Doggies have a lot of midfielders on the fringe waiting for games.

        Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:08

        ie Gres/dunkley out,

        Mid/fwd player into mid

        fwd/def player into fwd

        Hartley into Def

Josh · 15/04/2016 at 10:50

What everyone contingency plan if Micheal Barlow is a late out?

    Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:06

    Trade out.

      Tommo09 · 15/04/2016 at 11:39

      To who??

        Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 12:02

        Hall, Zorko, Dusty, Buddy?

Eric_the_Red · 15/04/2016 at 10:51

Hey folks. A lot of coaches talking of trading in Parker this week. Obviously he's an absolute gun, but I'm wondering what people think of T. Mitchell as a POD trade? Although I have every faith that Parker will continue to score very well, I'm not convinced he'll hold his current average. Even S. Mitchell could be a decent trade in to set a team apart. Thoughts?

    Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:00

    Tom mitchell is a good POD. Sam mitchell missed a few games last year I'd be hesitant. It's also highly doubtful he'll keep up this scoring.

    I haven't locked in Parker yet either but he has the potential to be an ultra premo the way he goes about it.

    Grahame Lebroy · 15/04/2016 at 11:00

    My worry with Sammy is cause he is old he will be rested at times. I always think when trading in (esp premo keepers) with the money I spend which player do I think will score the most points from that point onwards. Don't worry if they are a POD or not, just think with the money you spend who will score the most

Jack · 15/04/2016 at 10:53

i have 28 trades is using two more to set team a good idea and holding until rookies reaching max coin a good idea ? I will have 26 left

Thoughts guys

    Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 10:57

    We have no idea what moves you are doing.

      Jack · 15/04/2016 at 11:17

      I'm 4 k short of straight swapping barlow to hall so I need to double trade

        Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:20


        Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:22

        Wait till tomorrow arvo and see if Barlow is named

JJJ · 15/04/2016 at 10:59

Awesome. Food for thought

Average Joe · 15/04/2016 at 11:18

Crouch out for who? My fwd line needs some strengthening, don't really want to have to play papley on field. Would swing menapoo into mid. Thinking Dusty, Zorko or Buddy. Thoughts?

FWD: Hall, Wells, kerridge, S gray, Papley, Menadue (Brown, McCarthy)

Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 11:22

Yeah you don't wanna be running Menadue and Papley on field.

Like Zorko but everyone is jumping on him. Dusty should be solid too.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 15/04/2016 at 11:26

VC and captain my captain this week folks?

Priddus into danger or the ever reliable
Danger into Ablett.
Not much room to move between games but figure if I miss looping danger if he goes big well abs as a backup should do just as well against the Lions.

Thoughts? What's everyone else doing?
Running the gauntlet with the time clock or playing a capt on Sunday?

    Northernsoul74 · 15/04/2016 at 12:13

    Just read Priddis is a doubt.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 15/04/2016 at 12:45

      Yeah brutal derby last week a few boys a bit sore from it.

Average Joe · 15/04/2016 at 11:29

Danger into Goldy

Danger going against bombers, do I need to say more?
Goldy going against dockers back up rucks, should get plenty of hitouts and disposals

Just a gut feel but think ablett won't ton up, or under 110

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 15/04/2016 at 11:33

    Don't have goldy so can't do that one.

    Big call on Ablett. This is the god of SC u r talking about.

    Holty · 15/04/2016 at 12:33

    same joe. like it

Southern S · 15/04/2016 at 12:03

It's a tough price point to pick a player. Zaharakis is a good player, but maybe you need to generate some more cash and get a proven premo instead.

Crouch Dilemma · 15/04/2016 at 12:12

Hey guys,

That is my midfield situation. i have 62k in the bank. Do I trade out B.Crouch or wait on him & trade out of Petracca. Any other obvious changes needed?

Cheers team!

Marco_Polo94 · 15/04/2016 at 12:24

Crouch to fyfe, Barlow to Ruggles… thoughts? Other option I toyed with was Crouch to Parker, Barlow to Lyons.

Beezneez · 15/04/2016 at 12:24

I'm ranked in mid 300's with 29 trades left and $85K bank. Wanted to bring in R Gray for Toby Greene this week. Priority is to trade out B Crouch and was going to go T. Greene to Ruggles via DPP and then Crouch to R Gray. Worried about Greene's inconsistent scoring playing forward. Am thinking a better move may be to have another look at Greene and Ruggles and trade B. Crouch to J De Goey as a sideways trade this week. Then, depending on results, next week would have the option of trading say, B Kennedy, Mills, or Papley (although loathe to trade them) to Ruggles and then Greene to Gray. Can swap Z Merrett for Greene in the forward line and Gray would cover for Merrett in the mids. Any thoughts?

    GoHawks · 15/04/2016 at 13:30

    Too early to be trading out rookies, they are still making money.

    Robbie Gray is worth getting in, but not at the expense of letting your rookies mature, you will need the cash made from the rookies to get to full premium before other teams get there.

    When you reach full premo will have a large say in where your team ranks at the end of the season.

Northernsoul74 · 15/04/2016 at 12:27

What is Barlows break even this week?

    1800ken · 15/04/2016 at 12:32


Ben · 15/04/2016 at 12:45

is this trade good
Sam Gray to Dangerfield through Ben Kennedy mid/fwd swing then trade micheal Barlow to Jarrad Lyons? Or am I chasing Dangerfield too much

Kev · 15/04/2016 at 12:57

Not sold that Lyons is best 22

Chris · 15/04/2016 at 13:39

Bit stuck on what to do any help would be great!

I have Lonegan and B.Crouch who need to go (lonergan can stay if he has to but Crouch needs to go)
have $196k in bank, would love to get zorko as my forwards are a bit thin but just miss dont have enough
what should i do????

My rank is just under 1000 and looks like this

Shaw, Laird, Lonergan, Weitering, Adams, Dea Bench: Brown, Hartley
Fyfe, Danger, Ward, Priddis, Gaz, Hanneberry, Liba, Crouch, Mills Bench: Kennedy, Hewett, Davis
Goldy, Nic Nat Bench: wyatt
Dusty, Hall, Wells, Kerridge, Menadue, Papley Bench: AMT, Grimly

    sammy · 15/04/2016 at 13:58

    priddis out see patches report

      Chris · 15/04/2016 at 14:12

      Cheers mate, all the more reason i need to get someone in for crouch ill hold on priddis
