Confirmed Suckling out for at least 4 weeks.

Steeeve

Thinking I'll hold this week. I have no Fyfe and no real urgency to trade out Dea, BenKen or Menadue. Even if they're done fattening I'd rather wait until bubble boys arrive. Also, Dusty and Robbie Gray looking even tastier after another week or two of price drops.
Thoughts?

Northernsoul74

Right move. Hold unless you need to get rid of Fyfe.

james

been playing around with some potential trades, and would like some thoughts

Defence:
Laird, Adams, Houli, Weitering, Dea, DBJ (Byrne, Ruggles)

Midfield:
Dangerfield, Ablett, Hannebery, Priddis, RGray, Taylor Adams, Shiel, Parish (Hewett, Davis, Gresham)

Ruck:
Gawn, Nic Nat (Lorensch – for loophole)

Forward:
Hall, Wells, Kerridge, De Goey, Benken, AMT (Menadue, Petraca)

I have 518k in the bank and the trades I was thinking of were
Dea ——> Buddy
BenKen—–> Zorko

i feel like both of these rookies need to go and bringing in the two above will mean my Fwd line will be strong but my only concern is having 4 onfield rookies in the backline, so my question community is it better to trade Dea to a Fwd premo or Defence Premo

finally thanks community for all the advice, im sitting at 10,000 so not panic stations yet

Jake

I like them trades James,but keep in mind you're buying those players at peak price. Dusty and Wingard will be good trades in the coming weeks.

Sean

what are people doing with M.Brown? Have the money to upgrade to fantasia but might just hold?

CJudd3Votes

I'd hold. BE of 11 no need to use a trade he isnt going to go down in value for a bit

BKW

He's a slow burner providing bench coverage. Hopefully he gets up to $250 then time to sell

Jimi

If you were going to upgrade I wouldn't do it to Fantasia. Either drop him to a bubble rookie or upgrade him to a season long keeper.

murray

just hold him for now

Boltons Blues

will help to know how your bank is sitting right now, but without knowing

Fyfe >> Parker

Tret

anyone else having a shit season? Have been top 1-3% last 3 years but im ranked at almost 40,000 now. Started with a pretty stock-standard team, not too many PODs but obviously im no jock reynolds

These podcasts only thing keeping me from rage quitting at the moment

Marcus

Finished600 lastyear and im 26,000 atm

Ronny

Finished top 100 last year and in top 600 the two years before. Currently at 22000 this year with nothing seeming to work. Even upgrades are costing me points. Long season though and things will turn around.

Ben

Exact same boat as you mate top 1% three years running and this year sitting at 23000

Tophawk

I wouldn't throw in the towel just yet. If you can stabilise your side with some sound strategic trades, you can rise up the rankings very quickly. Your next goal should be to get through the byes with flying colours. Many coaches fall over during the bye rounds. Perhaps you need to be super focused to start trading in players with the byes well and truely in mind right now. When other coaches are scrambling during these 3 rounds, you can make up some nice ground during that time. Anything can happen after that.
Cheers

JamiesNinjas13

Don't worry Tret, your results speak for itself. As the season unfolds, the cream will rise to the top.Its only R5 therefore alot of people (experienced and rookies) still have the same teams.

Boz33

do I go crouch to tracca if tracca is named this weekend? to make cash for weitering and kennedy upgrades next rd

Benji

No. Wait until he is on the bubble, then trade him in. Anything can happen, if he gets injured or suspended in his first 2 games, you won't be happy. Even though he is a much better player than Ruggles, everyone who jumped on him after 1 game wouldn't be to happy with him.

Randomclcihe

Depends if crouch named… but plenty of other cows to send to the butcher regardless

Randomclcihe

Assuming that is b crouch

Southern S

No you've held crouch this long you hold, BE of 24 due for his first price rise.

shemmistwarehouse

hi community, thoughts on dea-boyd? I know he's old but he still aveaged 103 last year. He's a good price at 490k and i think he can average 90-100 for the season. What do you think?

CJudd3Votes

Depends how superstitious you are, going by Doggies luck with backman atm he's only a week away from snapping his leg in half and missing the rest of the year

Puopolo_Culture

I am also looking at Boyd. Simpson and Docherty are also on my list

Jimi

Not looking at any defenders just yet, my focus is on full premo mids and fwds first.

Southern S

A lot of the predicted top defenders are up and down (Houli/Shaw/Gibson), in and out (Rance/JJ/Gibson)

The only people who have been solid is Laird, Simpson and Docherty it seems.

I like the idea of using the rookies back there to their full extent and getting the midfield premos and to a lesser extent the forward line sorted. Backline last.

Pinidu

Community, you thoughts on the following possible Fyfe-replacements please, (these are pod midfielders)

– Dan Hannerbery
– Steele Sidebottom
– Sam Mitchell
– Rory Sloane
– Joel Selwood

Thanks in advance

Thanks in advance

Flaccid Jaff

Selwood, sloane, hannerbery, sidebottom then mitchell. IMO

Benji

Selwood and Hannebery YES
Everyone else on that list NO

Southern S

Hannebery or Selwood. Sloane possibly. Not Mitchell or Sidebum.

Jake

Hanners, Sidebottom, Selwood, in order for me.

CJudd3Votes

Weird round just gone, plenty of decent scores but a few blokes including myself got shafted through an unlucky combination of every who decided to spud it up (looking at you Gray, Fyfe, BenKen etc.)

Flaccid Jaff

Is kade simpson a top 6 defender or thereabouts? If so this is the week to get him. Will he average more than docherty? Looking at getting shaw in next week too if he scores above 95.

Benji

I like Docherty more than Simpson, but both would be close to a top 6 defender. 95 ish average most likely for both players.

Randomclcihe

Maybe not top 6 but points diff between him and 6th will be negligible

Hawks

Simpson will be top 6. Has been a consistent performer over the past few years. Taken more responsibility this year.

Simpson will be more consistent than Docherty, and average slightly more.

jim

Should i go martin to gawn or suckling to a premo?

BKW

Gotta move suckling pig – out for a minimum of four weeks

Soothsayer

I did Suckling up to Gray two weeks ago…..might be a better move now?

Pinidu

Suckling to PREMO mate. No point trading Martin

Michael

Simpson or laird for dea

tuxCS

Laird IMO

Luke

Simpson or dockerty for dea

Southern S

Crystal ball job there, go with your gut.

Jake

Flip a coin

Kev

What moves are you thinking mate?

Bobby Singh

I've used up about 5 trades so far this season, I'm going Fyfe to Pendlebury, is it worth trading Dea to Parker (through DPP) or should I conserve my trades?

Benji

Definitely! If you can upgrade a rookie to a keeper you should do it in a heartbeat. Maybe not Parker, but getting any elite mid for Dea would be a huge win.

licorice jellys

If you have DBJ to move off the bench go for it mate. Parkers a great choice, will end up in the top 10 mids given he gets through the season without injuries, which is why I started with him along with selwood. Just make sure u got someone to cover for dea without sacrificing points on field.

Kev

SGray projected to lose another 23k on top of the 91k he's already bled. I can't even say it's been a rollercoaster owning you buddy, more like a giant drop. Will go down as one of my greatest stain in the underpants pick.

Fyfe to Selwood
Gray to Hall

Keithy

I'm hearing you Kev, too late to trade now. We just have to sit it out until we can use him as bench cover for the forward/midfield. Can't wait to bench him, definitely one of the worst picks of the season.

Kev

I convinced myself of that last week, Keithy! That he couldn't get any worse, surely not, then he comes out with an effort like that (which I'm not sure you can even call effort).

The only reason I don't like the trade is because it will empty the cash I have, cash I was hoping to use come upgrade time.

murray

I chop the bastard Keithy, he is not going to do anything this year and is only going to bleed more cash, Get out now whilst you can get $400k from him and get a more reliable option

Pman35

I traded the mega spud 2 weeks ago for Zorko The Magnificent and have been duly rewarded and never happier! S Gray is season 2016's "Burn Man".

GoldRush

The spud should change his name from Sam to Cliff.

murray

He Shit, Kev. I should have turfed him last week, cost me a win in my money league

Southern S

You have to listen to the podcasts mate.

Crouching one's little Grayling story summed it up last week.

There is only one Gray worth having. (and even he is spudding it up at the moment)

DankMemes

Getting my shark on this week lads. Fyfe to Lyons and Callum (The #%^$#%^ Spud) Sinclair to petracca. will have 1.2 mill in bank

Matt

Im a big fan of Lyons, however i dont think he will keep the 90ave coming. especially since last year he averaged 44 over 12 games. more likely to average 65-80 this year

DankMemes

If i get 80 avg out of the Lyon King ill be happy, any more and thats just gravy.

Southern S

His low games were all sub affected Matt, he wore 8 of them last year.

Southern S

And fairly sure he came into the game wearing the vest, not the other way round, so his scoring is actually good for time on ground.

Southern S

Not saying trade him in for 300k though, High risk move looked better when i picked him up for 240k.

Jake

I wouldnt trade in Petracca this week if your gunna have 1.2 mill in the bank. Have a look at him first. Get yourself a Zorko or a Dahlhouse if you have that sort of money.

DDJ

Interesting to have no mention of the zack smith dilemma or thoughts on weiterings 79 B/E. I think I'll hold weitering but zack smith is a real concern, should we hold or trade?

I have $589k and 27 trades remaining, what ruckman would be worth looking at other than Naitanui if I were to trade smith? Goldy and Gawn are too expensive at the moment for my liking.

Also thoughts on Ben ken to Brodie smith via dpp? I reckon there's a bit of value in that trade or would Tom lee be a smarter move?

Boltons Blues

620k for 2 games above 150 is to much? not for me

Gawn or Goldy are must haves

Crowmagnon

I would put Gawn straight in, then sit back and enjoy the massive points each week.

Pman35

I dumped Z Smith for Blicavs 2 weeks ago and he stunk it up with a 50 odd first fame but came back strongly this week with 115. I had him last year and he will avg over 100 for season and is durable. Also have Max Gawn who is SC Gold!

Jimi

I'll be holding Weitering, Dea and Adams for as long as they can keep their scoring up, regardless of whether their prices plateau. Collectively they've been reliable for an 80 average which is enough to keep my defence ticking over while I focus on upgrading the other lines.

The only rucks worth having this year are Goldy, Gawn and Nic Nat – maybe Blicavs for a POD but not worth it IMO. I'd still favour Goldy over Gawn just because of his consistency the last few years.

Ben Ken to B Smith? All depends on if you think Smith is a defensive keeper, otherwise Tom Lee is the obvious downgrade target for this round. Personally I'm looking at Kennedy as a means to getting Zorko/Dahlhaus/Selwood type upgrade rather than upgrading anything in defence.

Chill

Community I would love your thoughts on who will be the top 6 defenders by year end.
Shaw… Laird… Simpson..?

Derek

I'm thinking; Shaw, Laird, McVeigh, Bartel, Rance, Dawson

tuxCS

Dawson #1 defender this year imo

Derek

I'm thinking he will slot straight into the guts to fill Fyfes role

Southern S

Maybe brownlow on the cards for dawson?

Like the bartel pick for top 6 defender too Derek he has the potential of course, but maybe not the role at Geelong anymore to pull off the big scores..

Tim

I can't tell if this is tongue in cheek or not? I'm oblivious to this, can you explain why?

tuxCS

Dawson is statistically the worst player in fantasy football, I'm honestly not sure if he's got a score over 100 in his career 🙂

Jake

Shaw, Laird, Docherty, Kolodjashnij, Houli, Boyd

Jake

Closely followed by Rance, Smith, Simpson, McVeigh

Zac

Dawson, Dawson, Dawson, Dawson, Dawson, Dawson

Tret

Anyone jumping on Priddis? High BE but always has a slow start to season before banging out some big scores. Could be a bit of a POD

DankMemes

Saving for him after the bye

Matt

waiting for the drop off in price, BenKen to priddis would be sweet in 1-2 weeks time

Nick

Best mid under 595k I've got gaz danger Selwood Shiel Liba mills and Parker or do you think there is better value else where. I'm thinking Pendlebury right now

Boltons Blues

Look at Cripps from Carlton, 3 very very winnable games coming up for Carlton, could do some damage, in 10% of teams

Southern S

Pendles. Lock.

Wayno76

Just a wot if question.

If Petracca plays next week who would you put on the field Pretracca playing St. Kilda, or Papley playing Bris.
Papley makes me nervous and yet to see Petracca in AFL game (but killing it in VFL) ?

Any thoughts community

Boltons Blues

flip of the coin really, the hype around Petracca is massive, so id go with him,

tuxCS

Managed to come first down at Cardina Hotel (Anzac day game), I think I got up at about 30th overall, so not too bad of a game.

Midzed

Surely you go danger before parker right?

Derek

100%

Southern S

Danger 145 BE upcoming GCS (SS) WCE (SS) ADEL (AO) COLL (MCG)

I think Danger is more likely to go down in value.

Parker 120 BE upcoming BRIS (G) ESS (SCG) RICH (MCG) HAWKS (MCG)

But who knows, and you need both ideally so take your pick.

Liam

Does Ben Ken and Dea have to go this week ?

magpie4ver

No

Boltons Blues

Dea and then Benken, if you have fyfe, id go Fyfe and Dea trade

Michael

community, whose the best option for matt dea, simpson ,docherty or laird

siri

I had laird so i went simpson

Derek

Laird.

Mike

Is it to late to trade in DBJ.

Derek

Yes

Southern S

Yep it's too late. Remember anyone can turn into a spud at anytime, welcome to supercoach 2016!

get him in

Most of us paid 200000 for wieterboi expecting an average of 80 odd dont see why dbj is any different

THANK YOU, UPVOTE IF YOU WANT THIS EVERY AFL PODCAST DAY

@emhoy

One bad game by Dea I reckon we should hold him for a couple more weeks, is playing my blues this week so should score ok.

Southern S

61, 87, 95, 73 and 41 in a huuuge blowout tells me he can make his BE.

Benji

Problem is Dea a shit footballer and there's a chance he's scores come back down to earth.

Southern S

His BE is reachable by a poor footballer though. Can understand people trading him though, just like papley to a byrne boy last week there's pros and cons.

tuxCS

Has anyone else got K.K? What are your guys' plans for him come the end of the season? I'm feeling alright about him because he's playing as a winger for GC (last time I checked).

Crowmagnon

I have him. only 1 good score so far. Hope he can find some consistency and be a nice POD.

Chill

I have him and will be holding. he'll come good.

Flaccid Jaff

I started with him too. Stick with him, could be up there with best defenders come seasons end

tuxCS

Definitely going to stick with him Jaff, just wondering what the communities thoughts were 🙂

okkk

Stick with him. Was sore in round one and I reckon he's still warming up. Bloody frustrating though hey.

Crowmagnon

I'm seriously considering Fyfe to Tom Lee this week. It gives me 1 more week to see which rookies are the shittest. Gives me swings across 3 lines too. Also my upgrade targets such as Parker and Shaw have high enough BEs this week to not go up in price much. I know I may lose a few points this round, but sets me up for a double upgrade next week. Thoughts?

Southern S

Yep like it, because if you trade out any of the rookies now they could easily bounce back and cause regret.

Sit on the warchest and pick them off once they are ripe enough to fall off the tree.

Bomber56

Thats exactly what I have done.

Jack Blucher

Thoughts on Biggs?

Sage Slipper

He bigg burnman … welcome!

Southern S

Potential burns. Go rookie or premo.

Jack Blucher

What to do with Wingard community?

Allo

Flush him down the dunny. That mop of his makes for the perfect toilet brush!

Tophawk

And once that is done, get the Glen 20 out to get rid of the stench.

Derek

When did he get the hit to the head? Was it before half time?

Wayno76

Thinking Fyfe to Scully bit of a POD and gives me cash for double upgrade next week as I'm thinking of upgrading Bartel and Dea

Marco_Polo94

Dea and Weitering have pretty high BEs, people holding or moving on? Must admit upgrading one to Shaw is mighty enticing.. But most likely i'll be downgrading 2 this week, and then upgrading both weltering and Dea next week to Shaw and Laird/Simpson/Martin

Marco_Polo94

Also, I just have to leave Byrne Jones now right? no point chasing him after his initial increase? Awesome BE still.

SCaddict

Both Dea and Weitering go for me this week to make way for Heater and Lee.

Mac

You keeping Fyfe addict?

SCaddict

That's one bullet I managed to dodge Mac as I didn't start with Fyfe.

I've had the JJ, Rocky and Crouch messes to clean up in previous weeks so glad to finally get a week off on the injury front.

dannyyboyy

id do the same to if i could addict, but i have fyfe. im lookin at adding lee and parker

SCaddict

Yep I'd get on Parker too with the Swans upcoming draw. I'm hoping Hanners, Mills and Smear in my own side can also cash in against the Lions, Dons and Tiges.

Actually DB you may have persuaded me to do likewise and keep Heater for next week as he's unlikely to go up much in price against the Hawks this weekend with a BE in the 120s. In fact I just checked and he hasn't tonned up the last few times he's played the Hawks so he may even be a little cheaper next week if history repeats.

Adam

Why trade Dea?
He should make BE

Pman35

I'm targeting Dea down to Petracca via DPP and Fyfe to Parker with $348K left in the kitty for future upgrades.

Goles

Should Bartel be held? Had him since round 1 and not providing

Wayno76

I'm holding him at least for this round playing at skilled against the Suns hopfuly has a good game if not shouldn't drop to much cash

Redgumwon

I think so I've had him since round 1 as well. I've also been trying to get Derek to trade him to me in the Draft game but no luck in three weeks so far. But I'm thinking of drafting in Dawson to make a super trade for Jimmy. Fingers crossed Derek sees value in the trade offer 🙂

Derek

You know my weakness

Redgumwon

🙂

Flaccid Jaff

Hold bartel, reassess midyear

Southern S

Like Scully hope it works out for you Wayno.

Wayno76

Cheers he's looking good this year will see how it goes

Derek James

Good onya Wayno. Bringing those left of field picks. Keeps the community on their toes

simon

dea to tommy lee??

poloko48

One trade this week as Fyfe needs to go.
Not really ready to add premos in mids apart from Pendles, but I desperately need to fix R2 (currently Tippett).
So out goes Fyfe, shift BenKen to MID, shift Tippett to FWD, and bring in Gawnster.
Ultimate Double DPP shift!!

Team now:

DEF: Heater, Laird, Adams (FWD), Weitering, DBJ, Wagner (Hartley, Ruggles)
MID: Hanners, Ward, Libba, Wines, Priddis, BenKen (FWD), Mills, Oliver (Kerridge (FWD), Davis, Keays)
RUC: Goldy, Gawn (MKing (FWD))
FWD: Hall (MID), Wells (MID), Buddy, Barlow (MID), Tippett (RUC), AMT (DEF) (Brown (DEF), Rioli)

$553K in the bank, Pendles in next week for maybe BenKen or Oliver (or both too soon?)

Thoughts welcome, thanks all 🙂

Wayno76

I like were your team is ATM and it doesn't look like everyone else's team and you have cash in the bank . I would look at Parker or Selwood over Pends but see how he goes this week

poloko48

Cheers Wayno, I'd jump on Parker but with 4 Swans already it might bite me come bye time. Now's the time to start thinking bye strategy and I already have 13 players with the bye in R14. Jelwood could be the one as he has R15 bye, also Pendles has bye in R13.

Bostik

Shark move in thought, what do you think is vital for rank change. An upgrade from dea to heath shaw (fairly common premo yet proven) or an upgrade from dea to docherty (a bit more of a POD). Keep in mind I already have Simpson so would mean simpson and docherty in same defense. Let me know your thoughts.

Tophawk

You have Weitering? If so, that would make it three.

I am not saying that is a bad thing, as Carlton spend plenty of time defending their goal line. That said, when the byes arrive, three blues on your backline would make a crowd with the likelihood that one or more of your other defenders also have a bye that round. Just keep that in mind.

I hate donuts. Cheers

Mac

Whats Lee's JS like?

Benji

I'll be shocked if he's dropped. Did nothing as a forward, dominated in the VFL last season as a key defender, up there in the b/f for Sandy. Came in for Roberton, shouldn't lose his spot any time soon.

charlie

what do i do with suckling.
apparently he is out for 4 weeks

Mac

trade

Mason

When loersch and dunkley gonna play

Southern S

Maybe never.

Votes

Who should I trade Fyfe for? Other premo midfielders are – Ablett, Danger, Gray, Ward, and Parker!

Chill

Ziebell

Stevo

Selwood or Hannaberry

Steeeve

Who has Grimley but is thinking of bringing in Cox if he's picked the next two weeks? Could keep Grimley and sit Cox in the forward line…

Southern S

Both those players are a waste of space at this current time. Grimley would've been good in R3 if he never played as a constant loophole with bombers having lots of sunday games coming up.

But yeah keep your eye on big cox (lol)

Derek James

Fyfe > Out. Wells/Kerridge > Mid. Tippa/Adams > Fwd. Rance > Bench. Matty Boyd > In.

Southern S

Like it Derek bit of a POD and defenders crashing and burning around him, but the old warhorse is still kicking!

He's a proven 100 point average player and only owned by 4.6% of teams. He's almost 34 though…….there is an element of risk.

James

Have $1,196,300 for two premos with Fyfe and Dea getting the boot

Already have Shaw, Laird, Danger, Parker, Wines, Zorko, Hall, ZMerrett.

Was thinking Ablett+Priddis, but now considering Ward+Selwood

breakevens

Ablett and Priddis all day

Southern S

Ablett and Selwood, although there is talk of Gaz looking sore.

Priddis I feel isn't 100% coming off a niggle and scoring a low 87. BE of 134 so no rush getting him in.

Pendles/Hanne/Selwood are on my radar at the moment.
