Damn you Bachar. But after your scores from the past 2 weeks you can be excused… Just.

Adds

Decided to hold b crouch for the moment, now I have lost Gibson and Priddis – not a good start to the round think my overall position of low 400 is going to take a battering this week!

Shake n bake

Is Selwood a top 8 mid from here on? really pulling my hair out over this trade with crouch. And I get my scores from footyinfo but seems like it's having problems, is there another app I can download to get live scores?

Loyal RoughNuts

I believe selwood will get back to his 2014 form. Cats have a pretty good run with games. He has relatively weak teams for SC finals so im thinking at his price he is worth the punt. Reckon he will avg 115 + for the yr. Has same bye round as rocky also. Top 12 mids i believe. What do others think?

Moz

I'm trying to get Selwood in, he always goes insane in the second half of the year & because Geelong are going to win a lot this year, he is going to score well. Nice POD

Kev

Fanfooty mate. Has live sc scores during games

Shake n bake

Tnx Kev

BundyBear

Thankyou for that 🙂

Marvin

Please to see yeo bash out a 130 odd last night. Quick qn I have Gresham. Do I pull the plug on him for hartley. He's not making coin or playing a. It means moving rich to mid, starting dea and then via my other dpps it mean I end up with one of either rich, m crouch, bkennedy or keeridge on my mid bench?? Ideally I would have thought of this last night when I could have moved menapoo to the mid bench by anyway too late. Thoughts?

Moz

Sounds like a good idea. rading down to Hartley who is going to give you cash generation. His JS isn't 100% but then again Gresham isn't in the team at all

Paul

Happy with Yeo, but stupid ol me stuffed up the loophole. I was going to do Danger into Goldstein. I got as far as putting the VC on Danger, but forgot to put the C on Goldstein. Captain Dusty Martin for me. FFS!

Moz

So I have Rocky on my bench, and I was destined to lose my league match by over a hundred, so i decided to hold him
HOWEVER
my opponent had Houli & Martin and they both spudded it up, so now I have a chance to win!

MID: Fyfe, Danger, Parker, Gray, Libba, Oliver, Kerridge, Davis (Menadue, Rocky, Keays)

I want to trade Rocky –> Ward. Is it a good idea to do this? Or should I risk a loss and hold Rocky for now?

I would really appreciate any advice, thanks!

Paul

The midfield looks fine as it is. Rockliff will only miss a couple, so may as well hold IMO. You might lose 40 or 50 points max.

Moz

You think that Rocky will come back and have premo output?

Paul

Maybe not immediately, but yeah, he's a proven scorer and with less rotations he'll be resting forward. He's very clever around goals, since he was drafted as a small forward.

Jojo

I got gaff in is a pod do I take his 132 as captain or will danger or Ablett do better I'm currently in a fierce league with my friends and I need to win

Moz

132 is a great score. Defs take it

Brookesy

Always take 130+

Ethan017

Danger scored 99 and Ablett scored 114

Iamme

Considering Dusty & Houli had such poor scores, I think you can risk keeping Rocky for another week….remember he is a fallen elite premo and is very capable 160 plus scores.

Moz

Injury ridden though?
Didn't have a full pre-season?

Keithy

Keep Rocky, don't waste the trade. You will spew when he comes back and starts banging out 120s.

Jack

Mills to Parish? Any value in a trade like that? Only 17k difference now but Parish looks to be the stronger performer and may even reach 100-150k more than Mills on current form? What do you think community?

Moz

TBH sounds like a waste of a trade. You should have enough of the other rookies to have good cash generation. Don't want to sideways trade too many times

davo

No real benefit to this trade, must trade up or down, better still hold.

Francis

Trade Crouch for Brodie Smith or hold? Will Smith be a top 6 DEF?

Moz

Could be a good trade, however Adelaide havea very rough couple of week coming up, may hinder his score

siri

Go with your gut feeling francis….. wanted to get Houli in but gona give him another week or two.

Smith could be a top 6 defender

Cam_H

Also keep half an eye open for the balance of your teams around the Byes. Adelaide has a Round 13 Bye (generally considered less preferable) but you may have a strategy or team balance where you can accommodate for it, or you'd rather just get the player you want and not concern yourself over having to 'wear' a 'donut'. There are a lot of Rounds between then and now, and lots can change in the meantime. Nonetheless, thought I'd mention it.

For what it's worth, I have Brodie Smith in my team, and think that he's capable of being a top-tier Def this year. Likewise, I've traded out Brad Crouch this week, but in 2019 the kids won't believe that he was valued at just $306,000 back in 2016!

Rayza

Ive got a dilemma so I need a few GUNS thoughts….. I have McMillan who I don't trust at all is it worth burning a trade down to either Johannison or Brodie Smith. Time is of the essence any thoughts would be appreciated. Don't want to go 0 – 2.

Moz

I would go Smith over JJ just because he's proven himself before, however JJ is doing really well this year

siri

What should i do if PRID misses another game communiry…. considering his age and the injury…..

Thanks

Moz

he won't miss another week, trust

bUCKET__

Hold. Not likely he'll be rested this year when fit, and he's been durable throughout his career. In any case, he'll be fine next week (unless he does something to re-injure himself). He was only a day off playing this week, apparently. Should go big against the Swans!

dognino

Going to loophole danger into gaz for C, but stupid me left the E on menadue on the bench. So looks like I'm going to have to take his 58 if danger rips it up. It will be mills coming off the ground anyway, so shouldn't be too much of a difference between his and mana dues scores.

Luke

Is Davis likely to score more than 58?
I can put dunkley on ground in the middle which would then allow me to loophole McDT and Papley in the forward line and Danger into Ablett captain loophole.
I am confusing myself….

Holty

not sure how this will stop you doing the loophole dognino. Surely you have another non playing player in another position?

dognino

It doesn't stop me from loop holing the C. It just locks in the 58 from menadue if I do . I had other options with swing sets available

Cliffy

I'm pretty settled in terms of my on-field rookies this week, it's looking like this:

Def: Weitering, Adams, Dea
Mid: One of Mills or Davis
Fwd: Wells, B.Kennedy, one of Papley or McDonald-Tippungwuti

What are you guys rolling with on field for the last two spots both in Midfield and Forward? I really don't think there will be a great points difference, but just curious.

Also, my trade finger is so itchy to get rid of Greene, but it will compromise my Forwards structure likely since I'll only have Hall and Barlow left as my main Forwards, and will have to play 4 rookie forwards (my trade plan was to get out Greene for the likes of Johannisen or Laird). Should I be resisting the temptation to punt him, or go for it? There really isn't too many other problems with my team after scoring 2,400+ last week.

Cheers 🙂

Cliffy

Realistically, Barlow and Greene are my only concerns in seems at this stage.

TySB

Danger or Gazza captain?

Pulling my hair out because I loopholed Nic Nat.

Derek

If Danger try's he will score 200. I'm worried he has a nice day out sipping latte and scores a lazy 80

I'm hoping he wants the 3 Brownlow votes

hedski

He didn't

Mac

Do I take Menadues score or sub Papley on?

Jess_coach

Im going papley. The upside is definitely there. Even if papley has a shocker, you wouldnt think he could do nuch worse than a 40 odd, which wouldnt be a massive loss

Noigerbour

He did

Southern S

Maybe I'm biased being a crow's supporter but there was no way papley was going to score well in a tough battle at Adelaide oval.

brody

captain goldstein or captain danger?

Loyal RoughNuts

Does the community believe j selwood will get back to his best this yr and avg between 115 -120. If so swooping on him now while under $560k looks very juicy. Peoples thoughts.
Only have Nic Nat so im 100 from 1.

Kev

Proven premium at 560k, jump on. Reliable. May not crack the top 10 mids but we won't be far off it

Kev

No consistency in defence, it was repeated ad nauseam in the preseason. Shaw, JJoh, Gibbo proven it so far. You'll get those games from Houli et al, jump on when his price drops because you know what he's capable of

andy_89

Which 2 out of Kerridge/Papley/B Kennedy would you start upfront this week?

andy_89

Thanks, that was my initial instinct but thought I was missing something when SC Gold projections for Papley are 86 while Kerridge and Kennedy were 43 and 68. Guess moral of the story is to turn them off!

Holty

lol. yeah i dont pay any attention to the projections.

Johny

Danger and bartel screwing me over

Marco_Polo94

Same

Cliffy

Guys, I only need one trade to go from Greene (via DPP swing with Adams) to get in Laird or Johannisen. Worth it, or persist with Greene for longer?

Cliffy

Means my Forwards then look like:

Hall, Barlow, Adams, Kerridge, B.Kennedy, AMT (Papley, McCarthy)

And my Defenders then look like:

Houli, Shaw, Laird/Johannisen, Bartel, Weitering, Dea (Brown, Hartley)

Too fraught with danger in terms of structures?

Clarky

you are very rookie based in defense

Nicholas

Learnt my lesson to never put danger as captain again… Vc is the only role for him

Cashcows

Tipa with 100.

Who goes off (using emergency loophole) – Papley, greene or barlow?

Thinking papley but is barlow a chance for a late out? was on extended bench and all.

hedski

That's a hard call cashie, besides his first half last week the smear has been the most consistent. As I had no fwd loophole (Mccarthy) I've moved petracca down from mids to get tippas ton and put wells into mids moving mills to bench. Had to play paps for this to work and hope a bit. Had menapoo e'd in mids and was tossing up between mills/davis. Doesn't matter now.
Anyway that's a hard call of yours they all have pros/cons. Spudhead greene due for a good one, spudlow no sandi, papsmear inexperienced vs crows.
Good luck 🙂

Kev

I'm a play it safe kinda guy, the percentage move is to put your rookie on the pine

Cashcows

It's killin me mate. Really tough choice.

Papley had a soft run so far in pies and blues but got done by his DE v GWS. Probably 60-90 if he gets enough of the ball.
But freo are 0-3 and against arguably a team looking to be in finals, surely SURELY barlow gets thrown in the middle.
Greene biggest yoyo this season so far. Could play out of his skin or put his feet up. His DE was down last game but did get enough of the ball which is a good sign.

Think I'm going Papley, gotta back in your "premos", can't have 400k on the bench.

hedski

Good call

Phil

I reckon it's close to a no brainer, has to be Papley. If you've lost that much faith in Greene & Barlow that you're considering starting a 107k rookie in their place, then I'd be trading them out.

Holty

hmmm, vc on Danger a fail. do i put it on Ablett or Goldy?

hedski

Same holty. Goldy for me with sandi out

Holty

true. just something tells me Ablett is about to have a huge game and Freo after losing 3 will be out for blood.

hedski

Think they've been out for that for a couple now not helping them

hedski

Ablett good choice too I've just gone goldy cheers

Holty

C is on Goldy. Lets go big fella

hedski

Ha ha kick another 5

Holty

lol. i said that sc has their favorite players and mentioned Fyfe. Ablett is the other one. He has had 1 kick only and has 11 points. Can someone explain how that happens?

Tophawk

Can't take a trick with friggin captain choices at the moment. Went V on Nic Nat which I did not take, and subsequently Danger comes out with 96!!! Luckily no real spuds at this stage. Tippa onfield with 101. aaaaaahhhh Welcome… Soothes the Danger pain.

Tulendeena

Amen

Holty

who was talking about selecting Lynch the other day? Hope you stuck with your gut and went with him. He looks going large today

Jack

Zaharakis another big score…seems the real deal

Clarky

I reckon he may start getting tagged, so i don't expect him to keep this form up.

Tophawk

Not watching the Gold Coast – Brisbane match. Anything up with Ablett? Has not had a possession for about 20 minutes.

hedski

Bout halfway thru second on 11 possies and 50 points. Gotta agree with holty re above but I'm still watching the (DELAYED CHANNEL 7 UR S#IT) cats fiasco. Will watch second half suns on phone. Hopin for a big score from captain goldy tomorrow tops to catch ya

hedski

Re holty above pet scorers

Hazey

Geez I just dunno what to do with Barlow. I'm just not certain of any options around his price a Mobtagna have dropped effort yet…

Buddy perhaps? Boomer?

Dan

Merret if you can afford

TeenWolfFyfe

Should i put the capt on parker, fyfe or r gray?

Nuggety

Can Parker keep up his good run? If so I'm bringing him in next week…but I'd go the Fyfe.

Anthony

Stef Martin :'(

And he was on track for his best score.

Clarky

Not gonna lie, bloody hate steven may now. Cost me massively.

Mac

Thanks Steven May.

Just in case some of you don't hear about it elsewhere.

Marco_Polo94

2 from 2 Danger. Quit letting me down when i chuck the C on you.

hedski

I would alternate your weeks marco stick with him next week

Holty

Amazing. When you think you are having a fantastic round and BIG MAY cleans up your ruck who is dominating. Great bump but i wouldnt be surprised if he get 3-4 weeks for that.

SC Shelia

Lonergan gone next week had 32 half way through mid is first qrt time and sitting on 44? Buh BYE!!

Davonaise

Hope people held Rich, he ain't losing any value

Iamme

Yes siree, after some debate I decided to keep Rich, looking like he will ton up for sure and hopefully pass the B/E of 115

Nicholas

Thank god derek convinced me to keep him haha

Derek

😉

The Rich haters will be quiet this week

Southern S

Don't get too excited yet he's still only averaging about 80 isn't he? Good score in a tough week though

Tophawk

Aaron Hall just keeps doing the business. Tonned up yet again. Ryan Davis was bloody dissapointing. Lucky to get 35 SC points. Had him on the bench and ready to loophole him. No need for that. Mills can stay onfield.

Gazza lucky to tonne up tonight. Not sure if he is 100%. Not sure whether to bring him in at this stage.

Derek

Gaz was getting a fair bit of attention and Hall Was left alone. I have to admit his starting to look like a top 8 forward. Missed the boat.

Andrew

Last minute advice community… Play Papley or Mcgovern!?

Ethan017

Papley

Nicholas

Smith and Papley not the best starts…

PJay

Why was Callum Sinclair dropped?

Starky

Foot injury

Coasting

Spud

poloko48

Papsmear has had just one handball & one tackle this half for 7 SC pts. May be nearly time to cull.

Tophawk

JJ IS GONE. WOW

Marco_Polo94

Shivers that's significant…

CoachDamo

I only brought him in last week!

Marco_Polo94

What a goal just quietly

Nicholas

I guess ill be using my 6th trade this week JJ hammy rip
