RD6: The Heroes. The Villains. The Damned.

Published by Jock on

BarronCoachKingsLogoThe heroics of Parker. The redemption of Barlow. The fall from grace of Goldstein.

This round was all about the risen and the fallen, Community. The peaks and valleys. The triumphs and mistakes that make this game of fantasy football so damn frustrating and exhilarating at the same time.

There were plenty of examples that fit the bill this weekend.

In CoachKings on Friday night, those who opted to go Tom Cambell over Goldy were branded instant geniuses after the North big man produced a rare stinker.

And David Lowe out at the Maroondah Club has stamped his authority on the pub fantasy footy scene, winning the CoachKings $1000 with his round high 1023 in the GWS v Hawthorn contest on Saturday.

But before we get into it, I’ll leave you with an amusing anecdote. “What do you think about trading Nic Naitanui for Todd Goldstein,” I said to my missus on the eve of Round 6. “Why?” she asked. “Because it suits my bye structure better and I think he will outscore Nic Nat for the remainder of the season,” I replied. “Don’t do it. You always use too many trades early in the season,” she countered. This was coming from a woman who has little insight into SuperCoach. And yet she somehow knew. She sensed it. But what did I do? I rebelled. I went against what she advised. I traded Goldy in. And in the blink of an eye I cost myself nearly 100 SC points.

The Heroes

Luke Parker (151 SC) Is herculean. Just an absolute warrior. Stepped up to kick the match-winning goal for his side which inflated his score somewhat, but still a pristine effort. Was quiet early and then worked his way into the game nicely. An absolute star.

Heath Shaw (143 SC)

You have got to love this man’s kick to handball ratio. Of his 32 touches, 29 were kicks. Needless to say he again scored well. Like his team, is working into the season nicely.

Joel Selwood (138 SC)

I probably should put Nic Nat in this slot, but I’m still hurting too much. After an injury-interrupted pre season, Selwood is building his fitness base up and now looks back to his damaging best. Is clearly benefiting from the addition of Dangerfield, giving him more space and freedom to roam around in the middle.

Honourable mentions:

Nic Nat (140 SC), Dan Hannebery (136 SC), Michael Barlow (134 SC), Callan Ward (132 SC), Patrick Dangerfield (132 SC), Matty Boyd (125 SC), Daniel Wells (122 SC). 

The Villains

Todd Goldstein (49 SC)

Every now and then even a champion has an absolute stinker. Goldy did it once to us last year with a 44 against Freo in Round 8. He only went under 100 once more for the season. So let’s hope this is an anomaly. That the real Goldy will return next week. I traded him in this week, too. FMSC.

Tom Liberatore (70 SC)

The bloke was the number one clearance player in the comp a couple of years ago. I don’t care if the Dogs have more midfield depth nowadays, like Pendles, you have got to play a footballer to his strengths. Carn, Bevo. Do us all a favour and stick him in the midfield where he belongs.

Steele Sidebottom (72 SC)

Many got excited by his enormous ANZAC Day performance. But let’s not forget he was only playing Essendon. Was underwhelming against the Eagles.

Honourable mentions: Aaron Hall (76 SC), Matt Priddis (70 SC), Marcus Adams (63 SC), Jacob Wietering (23 SC).

The Redeemers

Daisy Thomas (135 SC)

Against a formidable Essendon side, the fleet-footed Thomas wound back the clock to produce a fairy tale performance. Just watch all the lemmings line up to trade him in this week…

Dustin Martin (124 SC)

Hasn’t quiet been himself this season. But he did look better on the weekend. Priced at around 500K with a break even of 91, now is the time to get him in your sides. Will still be a top 6 forward this season.

Tom Rockliff (117 SC)

What a dilemma we have on our hands here, Community. Is dirt cheap. Looks to be getting back to his best. Can pump out massive scores when in form. I’m going to wait another week or two, though. He needs to prove his durability.

Honourable mentions: Sauce Jacobs (120 SC), Toby Green (114 SC), Mitch Brown (88 SC).

The Prodigies 

Darcy Byrne-Jones (70 SC)

The kid just keeps getting it done. I’ll take a 70 from a rookie I’m playing on the field any day of the week. I like this guy, and fortunately it appears Kenneth likes him too.

Christian Petracca (63 SC)

Solid debut from the highly-touted prospect. Despite Melbourne’s disappointing performance, he must be persisted with and given more opportunities. I’ll have a look at him for another week and then trade him in when he’s on the bubble if I like what I see.

Josh Smith (96 SC)

Don’t know much about this young man. Has flown under the radar and is on the bubble this week. Scored 72 in his first match followed by an impressive outing against West Coast.  At just $102,400 in SuperCoach, he is a tantalising prospect.

Honourable mentions: Mason Cox (67 SC), Ben Keays (59 SC), Kieran Lovell (44 SC).

The Damned

Lincoln “Head shot” McCarthy (44 SC)

Was about the only bloke who didn’t cash in on the Cats blitz over the Suns. Suffered a head injury which limited his output. His owners will be hoping he bounces back.

Ryan “Nothing” Davis (33 SC)

Has giving us nothing all season, really. Just a pulse on your bench at best. But there is barely even a heartbeat at the moment. More like a corpse at best. Was ‘rested’ last week and came in this week with an exhilarating 33. Only just made his break even so probably won’t make much more money. Look to trade.

Jesse “Mirage” Lonergan (53 SC)

Was one of the IT players of the pre season. More midfield time, they said. O’Meara and Swallow out, Lonergan into the guts, they said. Well, they were wrong. After a decent 96 in the first round, has gone 67, 75, 60, 64 and 53 in the next five. Deplorable stuff.

Honourable mentions: Jordan DeGoey (64 SC), Shannon Hurn (56 SC), Connor Menadue (52 SC), Matt Dea (38 SC), Ivan Maric (25 SC).

Josh Smith, what do we know?

bUCKET__

Mature age ball magnet, endurance athlete, can't kick, slipped over comically to cost a goal, little other talent in Collingwood side to replace him.

Bringing him in for either Menadue or Davis, writing off their selections as a loss. Thoughts, community?

Lucas Vassis

Your mum

Dan

JS gotta be an issue. Good for now, but surely can't keep up those numbers. Couple of sexy scores in his first 2 outings tho.
I'm thinking I'll hold off for a better look at blokes like Petracca, Keays, Matheison & with a bit of luck Freeman…

BKW

Freeman is done for the season I believe

Steeeve

Can confirm. I have no information whatsoever but it's Nathan Freeman were talking about.

Grahame Lebroy

Buckley would of gotten tired with some of the players that were not performing and I reckon by him giving games to Smith and Cox shows that he is ready to give some new blood a go instead. They still both carry huge risk with job security though.

Tim

I think his job security actually looks good. Read the article about him in the HS last week. Pies rate him highly and his first two games have been good (poor DE aside). Pies are hardly flying, so I think his JS is solid. At $102,400, with a BE of -108 and a second week score of 96 he is a must have in my opinion.

SCaddict

He'll probably get dropped Thursday night just like Lee last week after we all talked up his JS. 🙂

Hope not though as he'd be the perfect bubble boy given his pricing and potential output.

Tim

Haha yeah probably will. Would be stiff if he did though. Plenty of others should have their necks on the block before him.

SCaddict

So long as he isn't Wayno's hot tip this week we should be right!

Southern S

We know he is dirt cheap at 100k and set to go up 80k after this week.

Josh

Don't know anything about josh smith except that I was looking at cox now i am looking at him, smith makes it possible for me to pick up shaw before he starts his climb back to def premo royalty especially against a terribly inefficient fremantle which means more of those mop up kicks out of defense.

The only thing is cox is looking reliable for the scores he is getting and looks to have scope to score more as he grows with experience so do I wait a week for shaw and do a double downgrade (dea, Kennedy) or do I go shaw and smith

Jake

Get Shaw this week mate, only a 55 BE.

Derek

same here. With Shaw going up in price and dea falling, i'm slightly short of cash. but painting the fence with JSmith allows me to get Shaw.

Chicken Dinner

What does the community think of:

Trading Dea and Tippa, to Dusty "Choppers" Martin and Kade Simpson?

Not sold on Smiths JS for a downgrade target, anyone else i should be looking at? – Rocky would be next week.

The Mountian

Great selections there mate, tips could go for a few more weeks if you've got any other rookies that have no more coin to make

Steeeve

Thinking the trade priority for rookie culls is, in order:
Dea
Weitering
Davis
Menadue
BenKen
Hewett (had three goals in the first quarter then injured)
McCarthy (also affected by injury)
Ruggles (hasn't appreciated enough)
Brown (finally had a good game)
McDonald-Tipungwuti
Mills

What order would you have these blokes in, and where would you place other rookies? I've only used those I currently have.

Jay

Dea and Weitering first for sure – both with BE around/over 100

Jimi

The thing with Dea and Weitering is yes thery're topping out but there still, generally, scoring ok enough to prop of the defence until the byes. If you can trade them out to use the cash on your other lines then OK, but if you're trading them out just to upgrade them to premo defenders I wouldn't bother. Defensive line should be the last upgrade priority.

BKW

Put together a similar list this morning 😉

Also agree Dea and Weitering should be first to go – I'll then assess the break evens next week and make a call from there

Hating Menadue and Davis' output, they just need one or two decent games to make some decent coin (Mitch brown was in the same boat until his 88 this round)

Southern S

Partial dislocation of the shoulder and knock to the head for Weitering. Has to go with that BE I reckon.

Steeeve

Unless he's rested… in which case he can warm the pine for a week then go.

Southern S

Then you have a donut for a week and probably a 20k+ bleed the next game. there's some bubbles this week and next, and some premos that need picking up. Cons appear to be outweighing the pros.

Southern S

With an early game on saturday not the greatest loophole option if on bench.

Steeeve

Yeah just thinking he can wait for those who have a lot of culling to do. He won't lose value this week so can wait as long as your other bench defender is playing.

Moz

Everyone traded Barlow,
I Kept Barlow
143 poins

Everyone traded Greene
I kept Greene
115 Points

Everyone traded Rockliff
I kept Rockliff
117 Points

3 Trades saved
It pays to save trades

HOLLA

Everyone?

Pinidu

I kept Barlow and Greene. Traded Rockliff.

Dijon D'Elia

I did the same and feel still like that was the best possible option.

Wattsieesq

I kept Barlow and Greene. I'm happy I got rid of Rocky. Brought Hanners in for him and it's been awesome.

BKW

Yeah a few generalisations here but they look good holds now, although the Rocky one would have cost you quite a few points each week (for what it's worth I traded him to Parker and kept Barlow, didn't have Toby)

Paul

I traded Barlow for Hall. Worked out pretty well. Might even trade Barlow back in this week for Weitering (via DPP).

Southern S

Kept Barlow and traded Rockliff, I consider that a win as Rocky is only averaging 84.2 and missed 2 games.

Josh

Barlow to Waite r2 – so far winning that battle not to mention Barlow is be benifiting from injuries that you surely hadn't foretold

Rockliff to dangerfeild r3 – also consider that a win

Flip side to every coin

JamiesNinjas13

Barlow will score more than Waite end of season, rockliff to danger was a good choice though

Southern S

Personally wouldn't consider the top one a win because you used a trade, and Barlow hasn't missed a game also scored a 128 and 134 the last two weeks.

Grahame Lebroy

Agree totally , great discipline to hold there. Those trades will come in handy later in the year

Derek

throw Rich into that lot as well.

will the same be said for RGray and Wingard?

BundyBear

Everyone ?????? . I never had them to start with. So how could I trade them

Shaq

Far out this is by far THE best and ULTIMATE comment I have ever seen on Jocks website! Amen to that, I'm in the same boat as you brother 🙂

Hoot

I traded Cox in last week hoping he will continue to play. Looks like it has paid off so far. Doing the same with Petracca this week as Ill need the $tah$h of Ca$sh from the downgrades to purchase the likes of Rance Selwood Priddis Zorko etc..

magpie4ver

What are people thoughts on Weitering, is a must trade this week? Lost 25K and seems to be injured even though they say he might play?

Pinidu

BE over 100. Must trade.

Steeeve

If he can play he's not a must trade, although I agree he's close to it.
Has already scored over 100 but more to the point, that low score will drop out of his price after three more games and he'll be back around his current mark. That makes trading less urgent if you'd like to keep collecting his reasonably consistent 70-odd scores for another few weeks. Depends on other which other players need to go as to whether culling Weitering is a priority.

Hoot

Agree. If he is playing I'll do what I can to keep him. With an Avg of 70+ being likely, I'd be happy having him on my field until the byes.

If Weit doesn't get traded this week, you'd be forced to keep im for another few weeks.

BKW

I'm trading him for two reasons

1) high chance of re-injuring his shoulder if he plays
2) high break even

If he isn't named this week you could move him to the bench if you have cover

Grahame Lebroy

Wait till later in the week. I'd say Carlton won't be rushing him though he is too valuable. Andrew Mackay said he might only miss a week or two, might not be as bad as it looked

TRIGGER HAPPY

If weita plays this weekend I'm trading dea to shaw.

JamiesNinjas13

He was already maxing out his price prior to the game. Now with this 23 running through his next 2 games, you either have to wait probably 10+ weeks for him to get back to a decent price of 365k (assuming he scores 75 each game) or trade him now or next week to a premium. I'm trading him to Houli.

D-Train

Numbers are correct but you're using his average with injury. If you take out the 23, he's averaged 84 for the year.
Based on that average, he'd hit ~370k after 5 games, 380k after 6 games. Seeing as he has 6 games to his bye, if you think he'll average mid-80's from now until then (and he'll play those games, which does remain to be seen), means it probably isn't as clear-cut as you'd think. I'll probably end up culling him but I understand why some people wouldn't.

JamiesNinjas13

If your optimistic that he can score 85 each game then you should keep him for sure but I think a more realistic score is 75. The 85 avg (taking out the 23) is heightened by his monster 130 score in round 3. And it is confirmed he will be out for atleast 2 weeks so I'm upgrading him to bring in 50 more points each week.

Southern S

Trade 100% for me.

Mr booby-buyer

Traded him to Boyd last week… Bang!

Welcome.

Southern S

Stunning move!

Pinidu

Community, I had a shocking week scraping to 2028 and dropping out of the top 1%, I need your advice and guidance.

I have 27 trades and 488K in the bank.
DEF: Shaw, Laird, Houli, Weitering, Dea, Adams (DBJ, AMT)
MID: Danger, Ablett, Priddis, Pendles, Libba, Mills, Parish, Hewett (Davis, Menadue, Dunkley)
RUC: Nic Nat, Gawn (Wyatt)
FWD: Barlow, Hall, Greene, Wells, Kerridge, BenKen (Papsmear, McCarthy)

What should I do?

Possible options are:

Weitering –> Simspson
Davis/Menadue –> Rockliff??
Or
Dea/Weitering –> Simpson
Menadue –> Dusty??

Is Josh Smith a must get? Dea a must trade? Parker a must get?

So many questions Community, I need your help please.

Thanks in advance

Grahame Lebroy

Struggling to feel sorry for you about dropping out of the top1%, I wish I was there, great effort.
Reckon Rocky with a BE of 84 is about as cheap as he will get, I have him and if he plays he should only keep improving so Davis or Menadue to him makes sense. Trading Dea is something I am considering this week also. Parker has become a must have this year, not sure on J.Smith.

Wattsieesq

I like the second trade. Both trades are solid, though.

Josh Smith isn't a must get. There are mids like Keays and Petracca coming along that will make cash. If you are trading rookies, Dea and Weitering would be on the top of the list. Parker was useless in the first quarter but had mamoth three quarters after that. His score was inflated by the late goal. I have him as I think he'll be a top 10 mid. There are other mids out there who can do a job just as well.

rosy

Parker is a must have. Going bananas this year. Even at 595k its a steal.

hedski

Weits=Smith
Dea=Chopstix
Bang bloody bang.
$230k in kicker still.

tuxCS

B.Smith or J.Smith ?

hedski

J.Smith.
I have B.Smith

JamiesNinjas13

Jealous of your DPP trade swings hedski!
I really want Weitering to Chopsticks but all DPP (Walla, Adams and Brown) are all in my Defense 🙁

hedski

They're all in my def now mate.
Will tryin swing one back down after next week open it back up.

JamiesNinjas13

Yeah I would like to open it back up too but there no defense rookies worth trading in at the moment (maybe Tucker) and there's no stand out defense rookies who have been talked about that may play in the near future either.

hedski

I'll prob downgrade davis to keays then trade menapoo out of fwds. Swing brown or tippa down and get in a simpson/rance type in def

Southern S

If Beams comes back in and Keays keeps his spot then maybe.

If beams returns next week then I'd pretty worried of keays getting dumped just before his price rise.

hedski

Yeah ill be watching that.
Mathieson will be another factor there too.

Tophawk

Any coaches looking to bring in Jarrad Mc Veigh this week? Appears to be over his injury issues and seems to be gathering momentum. His price dropped around 30K to around $512 grand. Scored 88 last round and has averaged around 84 for his first three games this season.

With the byes fast approaching, he is a DEF/MID DPP player also. Could be a crucial swingman. He is a reliable, hard defender which could average 100+ from here. Can also be considered a keeper with the likes of Shaw, Laird, Rance (after next week), Gibson, etc etc. I want my backline sured up ASAP, as it is proving to be the most difficult line for me right now.

Thoughts?

Grahame Lebroy

He has a BE of 132 this week. I agree he is worth upgrading too but now isn't the time he should be cheaper in a few weeks. He is one of the elite backs when up and running

Swans2012

I'd wait another week as be still high but for mine he's a lock for top 6-9 defenders from here.

Manuka

I am getting him after the next game when he will be about $500K. Good for my bye structure too and very few have him at this stage which will change after his next game. A top 6 defender

The Ranger

Definitely on the radar but Heater comes in this week for me which finishes my backline until the byes.
Might try and upgrade Adams, Yeo or Bartel to McVeigh later but after this week I'll be looking at my mids.
Rockliff and Murphy are nice and cheap.

Derek

he will be in my team in a few more weeks when he is at his cheapest.

not sure he will average much over 90 with so many other swan players in the midfield getting points. But if there is an injury to one of the guns he will score very well.

tuxCS

He's on my radar for the eventual M.Adams upgrade, it's between him and A.Rance for me.

Southern S

I have a total of 6 rookies in my backline (4 on field)

Trying to establish who is worth locking in back there for the long haul, feel McVeigh will end up there in a couple of weeks, and maybe even bartel if he lifts.

CJudd3Votes

Have both Dea and Weitering and looking to get Shaw in for whichever i trade out. To swap Weiters i offload Davis to Smith, to swap Dea i offload Gresham to Smith.
I feel like Dea is more concerning atm however also feel that it would be dumb to offload Gresham now after waiting for him to come back in the team with him finally gaining cash. Thoughts community?

Tommy

Hi Community
I am posting this as i am in desperate need of help. At the start of the season, i thought i had a prety decent team. But they are just not scoring highly at all. It is:
Laird, Houli, Weitering, Adams, AMT, DBJ (Mckenzie, Hartley)
Ablett, Pendles, Ward, Selwood, Sidebum, Libba, BKennedy, Mills (Davis, Gresham, Petracca)
Goldy, Martin (Wyatt)
ZMerrett, Greenem Franklin, Wells, De Goey, Kerridge (Brown, Menadue)

I just have so many players that need to go, and no idea what to do. I have 120k in the bank after bringing Goldy in last week. I currently have 26 trades left. I am also wary of the upcoming byes. My bye situation looks like this:
Week 1: 13 players out
Week 2: 11 players out
Week 3: 6 players out

So ideas for what i should be doing not only in the short term, but also the long term would be greatly appreciated!

Dan

BenKen –> J. Smith
Weitering –> Shaw

Welcome.

Tommy

Could i trade menadue instead of BenKen? BenKen is scoring better than Menadue currently and will still allow me to pick up shaw.

Derek

surely menadue will be dropped this week

Tommy

Definitely deserves it

Derek

Shaw this week

CJudd3Votes

Key point of consideration this week needs to be trade options next week. I feel most coaches will be targetting Petracca and Keays as downgrade options and hence need to factor this in to the thought process regarding any moves this week

Southern S

Not too sure on Keays as Dayne Beams comes back.

Jonathan Camac

looking to cull either of these fat cash cows for Barlow – but not sure who to take out. BenKen or Tippa? Thoughts community?

magpie4ver

Their BE are still pretty low.

Tommy

BenKen is frustrating me heaps, although he will no doubt ton up the week i get rid of him

Southern S

Tough call but Tippa may even have better JS? Random guess of course.

Jonathan Camac

what do you mean by JS?

Southern S

Job security

Jonathan Camac

I see..you make a good point there.

Giggity

Just traded benken to josh smith and upgraded weitering to heater shaw is this ok ?

Tim

Probably going to do the same thing myself – subject to the release of teams on Thursday. Heater is a must have this week for those who don't have him and I think Josh Smith is a good buy. Benken may potentially still have some coin to make, but I think his last month is more reflective of where he is at then his first two games. His BE is getting up there and I don't think he has a heap left to make. Weitering's BE is over 100, so he is good to go.

Tim

*than

BKW

Yep

Dijon D'Elia

Just wondering how many trades everyone has left? Iv used 2 this week and now Im down to 25 so Im curios to see if I'm above/ on par/ bellow the average?

Cam_H

I'm on 24 this week if I don't trade. It was never my plan to have used so many, but three of my six have been injury-related.

I've got an itchy trigger finger however, and considering Dea + M. Crouch to Zorko/Dahlhaus + J. Smith/Petracca.

Southern S

You're fine, I wouldn't worry about it. If you need to trade you do it.

Steeeve

What's riskier? Bringing in Petracca, who could get injured/reported and not burst his bubble. Or bringing in Smith from Collingwood whose job security is pretty suspect? I need to trade one down one up this week as I don't have heaps in the kitty.

Grahame Lebroy

I think Smith is riskier out of those two, just because of job security. I have Petracca but I am considering Smith heavily for this week

The Ranger

I think his JS is ok, I don't see a whole heap of players under him vying to take his spot.
Macaffer maybe but the rest are rookies too.

There, that's done it…he'll def be dropped now!

SCaddict

Yes if he's Wayno's hot tip tomorrow that will be the final kiss of death!

Wayno stitched up Lee last week as his hot tip who was then promptly dropped to the magoos. The previous week it was Suckers who then collapsed in a miserable heap so whoever the tip is this week we need to avoid that individual like he has swine flu! 🙂

Jedders

Smith will continue to play I guarantee you. people who dont trade this bloke in are crazy.

Steeeve

I think he'll get a game next week. But don't want to be stuck with him laying lifeless on the pine after that…

Tim

Agree Jedders. At the risk of having substantial egg on my face come Thursday night, I am struggling to see where this talk about Smith having dodgy JS is coming from.

Southern S

Smith locked in my team, those scores for 100k what's not to like, wouldn't care if he got dropped for a couple of games out of the next 6-7 anyway.

Steeeve

Pity he's not defense eligible since I would ideally cull Dea and Weitering this week! Can swing forwards but have no def-mids.

rosy

All you need is a FWD/DEF in your FWD line (Tippa/M.Brown) and a FWD/MID in your MID line (Menadue/BenKen).

Step 1. Hit trade on Dea
Step 2. Sub your FWD/DEF into your DEF
Step 3. Sub your FWD/MID into your MID
Step 4. Trade Smith into your MID

rosy

Sorry….Step 3 should be: Sub your FWD/MID into your FWD

Steeeve

Thanks I have made it work! Just have all my def-fwds in my backbone now. A problem for another week!

Cameron

G'day community,
What is more of a priority this week, getting in Parker (be 70) before he gets to 600k+ or getting josh smith this week as he is on the bubble? Don't think I can get both in this week unfortunately

Tommy

Bring in Parker. There are quite a few rookies on the bubble next week like Petracca/keays

Southern S

Why can't you get both?

Cameron

Well I could but I would have to downgrade mills instead of tippa

breakevens

Any defenders on the bubble

SCaddict

Only Tucker but after coming off a 34 (with an average of 50) he's not exactly the most enticing prospect.

Then there's Lee who's currently stranded on the bubble until whenever he gets his job back.

BKW

No good ones – do you have a mid/def or fwd/def that you could swing into the backline? That's what I'm doing this round…

Harry

Who to trade in
D Martin or L Dalhausee

Wattsieesq

Dusty for me. Buy low, sell high.

BKW

Both good options – I prefer Dahl as he is more consistent, but Dusty us dirt cheap

Danners

Dusty, won't find him cheaper anytime soon

dwhits

Dea >>> Tucker
Weitering >>> Shaw

124k left. Happy Days

Aurion

What premo is the better option to get in this week? Parker? Martin? Franklin? Pendles?

magpie4ver

I say Parker

rosy

Agreed. He's massive.

Nicholas

Mock me on the bug but the support team aknowledged it and are looking for a fix. I definently did not make the trade that I was given and it has been confirmed

Loop

Thats good to hear. Now if you get Rich back and he breaks his leg next week we wont be hearing any complaints???

slippery sam

days of our lives home and away who cares

fatty vautin

nick off sick of it nrl comp for you

Rick Grimes

I can see them making a movie out of this. Erin Brockvich part 2.

magpie4ver

Anyone looking @ Daisy?

Steeeve

Hopefully heaps of people. Then the rest of us can sit back and laugh.

magpie4ver

lol….he's playing well.

Lachie

no

SCaddict

Surely Higgo will talk him up on tomorrow's podcast much to Jock's dismay.

magpie4ver

lol

Southern S

We need these kinds of players so we can move up ranks easier without him.

rosy

He's averaging 98 and is 504k so I don't know how that's funny. Fairly serious prospect.

Southern S

2012 games played 17
2013 – 5
2014 – 20
2015 – 5
2016 – 5 out of 6

Has already missed a game this year, potential burn written all over him.

BKW

Spot on – if you bring him in be prepared to trade him out when (not if) he gets injured

TRIGGER HAPPY

In the rear view mirror only. Though that is the best game I have seen him play in navy blue. But to b clear. It's a no from me. 🙂

fatboyfat7

Anyone know whats happening with B Crouch? Is he still out with the hammy or just cant make the team? Tried to be patient and hold but this is getting ridiculous…

Cam_H

Had a great game with the Crows' SANFL team – 36 disposals, albeit 23 of them were handballs.

A real possibility for selection this week (maybe Laird's foot injury might be the catalyst for the recall?).

John

36 touches in his first game back in the twos

Fox

Played in SANFL …. 40 possessions , should be in serious contention this week ! And maybe even for his brother

Johnny

Any suggestions on my team welcome. Currently ranked 280 with 24 trades. Thinkin AMT for smith and not sure what to do with Kennedy…

Shaw laird Bartel rich Adams bjones- Byrne brown
Danger Parker ward Ablett Pendles Libba mills petracca- davis Dunkley hewett
Goldy Gawn- goetz
Dahl hall Barlow wells kerridge Kennedy- AMT menadue

Richard

Hold Kennedy trade out davis for smith

JamiesNinjas13

Libba got 70 was because he got a corky early and was on the bike most of the second quarter to run it off. Still affected him throughout the game therefore was put on HFF. Plus Bevo's also managing his midfield minutes throughout the season because lets be srs, he can't play 100% pure inside mid coming back from season ending ACL. Just a FYI community.

magpie4ver

You suggesting that he should be Traded?

JamiesNinjas13

Nah just stating why he got 70 before people want to panic trade him to a premium. I think the more games he plays, the better he will get and could be a worthy M8. Will be one of the last traded in my side (that's if I trade him).

Cozza

I agree Jamies. For those who have Libba we were lucky he was able to come back on the ground and score as well as he did! He may miss a week as it looked like a nasty cork, but he'll bounce back and be a good M8/M9 or last upgrade option.

Steele

Priddis playing injured?

Southern S

He did miss a game in round four with a groin complaint maybe that's been affecting him. I'd assume he will be good next week.

JamiesNinjas13

He will be at a juicy 525k next week if he gets his projected score! Rockliff, Priddis then Gray all fallen 'Excellentttt"

SCaddict

Yes I've got my eye on him for a potential side swap with either Libba or Zaka for little financial outlay.

Not sure I'll do it but it's one option open depending how things pan out over the next fortnight or so. I'd need to see him regain form first. He's a potential top 8 mid when fit and firing.

BKW

Wonder if it's OP? Somethings not right

Clarky

Hi Community

I have a dilemma this week. I currently have 26 trades left and 120k in the bank after bringing goldy in this week. I have 2 trade options.

Option 1: BKennedy/Menadue to Smith, Weitering to Shaw

Option 2 BKennedy to Smith, Menadue to Hall/Martin/Betts

Please leave a comment as to your opinion about which one to pick along with the player i should go with if there are multiple options please! I only have 2 Premos in defense in Laird and Houli, whilst i have no outright premos in forwardline, just have 4 players between 400k-500k in Franklin, Greene, Merrett and Wells.

Thanks!

tuxCS

Option 1 for me, Shaw is a MUST HAVE this week.

Tim

A lot of talk of trading out Weitering and/or Dea for the likes of Shaw and/or Simpson but has anyone given any thought to bringing in one M. Boyd? Super competitor who knows how to find the footy and with the dogs half back flankers dropping like flies in the early part of the season he surely must be considered.

JamiesNinjas13

He looks like a great POD at the moment Tim! But tooth length is the issue. Dogs are going to play finals so they may rest him at some point later in the season to freshen him up. He is a smart pill collector that's for sure.

Southern S

They might not be able to afford to rest him with the rate of their injuries! Also seems pretty resilient Boyd, reasonably safe trade I reckon.

PeptideCancer

Hi Jim I can tell from your avatar that you're a supporter of unethical/cheating behaviour and using young players as guinea pigs to test drugs that are illegal to test on animals but, other teams and players don't share your love for such disgusting behaviour.
I'm sure that you think collecting pills is a valid way for a player to improve his performance but Matty Boyd is not like that and never has been. Boyd is an honest hard working footballer who collects disposals faster than Jim Hird and the essendon club collect methods for endangering the players of our great game

JamiesNinjas13

I feel sorry for you mate, sitting behind a computer and hiding behind a false name attacking people. Since you are purposely going out of your way to cause a stir, I am amused at how you are able to afford internet with your dole bludging and uneducated ways but I am guessing you are most likely sponsored by Centrelink. There are many valid and educated guesses I can make based on the type of person you are. You may be an unsucessful virgin 50 year old with no kids, no family which explains the childish comments. If you need my help in finding 10 jobs a fortnight for Sarina Russo, let me know I can tutor you on how to be a little more mature and a little more successful in life rather than surfing this website and making expired jokes on a Tuesday afternoon.

Southern S

Actually no, Boyd has missed a fair few games in the last 3 seasons, so not exactly resilient.

Played games

2013 – 13
2014 – 19
2015 – 18

No point averaging 100 if they're gonna miss games.

Mr booby-buyer

Respectfully disagree southern. That's what emergencies are for

Southern S

Fair enough but I usually aim for the guys that seem more consistent through the seasons.

I can miss out on good players though I acknowledge that.

Mr booby-buyer

Definitely a valid strategy, higgo might be able to tweak the maths here but I think it goes
(tooth length+durability)÷potential output=risk factor

Maybe carry the integer…

Neverweaken

I kept suckling on the bench and traded Dea to Boyd last week. Happy with the trade and consistent defenders are non existent this year. Kade Simpsons another I'm eyeing off.

Jacob

Looking at bringing in rich at 440k has had three tonnes and one poor game when tagged heavily, what are people's thoughts on him ??

Tommy

No for me, crumbles when it comes to getting tagged. He won't keep this scoring up.

SCaddict

Beams is due back shortly. I'd want to see how the midfield dynamics at the LIons shake out first before committing to bringing him in even if he costs a little more further down the road.

If he goes back to that halfback role of years past then that would limit his fantasy output but if he continues playing mainly onball then that would be a huge tick.

Derek

good point SC

Cozza

Good point SC. I was tossing this trade up as well, as I only have $470k for a defender after trading out Dea and trading Menadue > Smith. There is not much in that <$470k defender bracket except Rich, Smith, Yeo and KK (already have Bartel). Just not convinced any of them are keepers this year.

Either have to pull the trigger and get one of these 4 or downgrade Dea to Tucker. Tucker had a good first week for a rookie, but not so good this week. His JS looks to be okay though.

Any thoughts on best option here are more than welcome!

SCaddict

I'd probably go Smith out of that bunch. Although he had a quieter weekend SCwise he's been getting it done most weeks with an 87 average. Rich does look an ok option too but I'd wait myself for the reason mentioned above. KK has been disappointing so far this season and as for the YoYo … well his name says it all.

Fortunately I'm able to cull Adams in my forward line for Smith (assuming he plays) so can upgrade Weita to Heater. Although I'd much rather cull Dea this week instead of Adams I can't wait any longer on Shaw with a BE of 55.

Joe

Was considering a double downgrade this week to get Smith and Petracca in, but might wait another week on Petracca until he's on the bubble.

At the moment its Kennedy to Smith and probably Weitering to Martin via DPP.
Good trades or should the double DG be considered community?

Richard

Wait on Petracca for another week see how he goes.Your one up one down trade the way to go

Danners

Good trades, a lot of good rookies will be on the bubble next week

Anth

Do we consider Liberatore to Rockliff as an upgrade to a premium or a sideways trade?

The Ranger

It depends.
Did you put Libba in your side as a keeper or as a stepping stone?
If you put him in as a keeper then it's a sideways trade i.e. one keeper to another.
If you put him in as a stepping stone then I suppose you can trade him to a fallen premo.
I put Libba in as a potential keeper and I think he still is. He'll be one of my last upgrades if I do actually upgrade him at all.
It's a strange trade to be considering this week Anth, do you not have some rookies that need culling?

Derek

that is an upgrade. however i think Libba can stay awhile longer

Southern S

Rocky should be a premo you put in your team later in the season I reckon, he's missed too many games int he last couple of years.

SCaddict

You're probably right SS but if he puts in another solid performance at AO this weekend and pumps out another hefty ton he'll be mightily hard to resist next week. The Lions shocking early draw will get easier soon too.

Southern S

He can get a 117 with a broken leg though Rocky, not sure if that kinda score is solid for him. I wanna see 150's with a pile of tackles to know he's back 100%.

Will the Real Rocky please stand up?

Southern S

Just looked at the stats and he had 32 and 10 tackles. Damn you Rocky!

I can't get him yet due to already trading him out earlier after starting with him.

Dillon Panthers

Hey gents love bouncing stuff off you guys. Danger or chopsticks in this week? Want to wait for danger to come down but I'm starting to think he might not and I can't keep missing those points. Choppy is dirt cheap but will still be very cheap next week. Another point of view is always nice.

Thanks chaps

The Mountian

Personally I think if you haven't got him yet, get him he is averaging a touch under 130 so if your waiting for him to come down you may be waiting a while. Im going to try and snag dusty next week because he should still be around the same price with a BE of 90 he should appreciate too much

BKW

Same plan 😉

Southern S

Danger needs to be locked in, Martin has been very inconsistent. The way he's playing he won't be a top forward this year. (although it's highly possible he will be if he can hit some consistency)

Jordan

I'm thinking, Clayton Oliver (if not selected again) to Josh Smith and then Dea to Kade Simpson. I'm holding Weitering for a few more weeks to see if he can get his form back.

thoughts, Community?

Southern S

Not a fan of keeping Weitering. I'd get rid of both defenders preferably with a downgrade/upgrade move.

Or double upgrade if you have the warchest of course.

Jordan

I would consider that, but it all depends if Tom Lee is named. I'd rather have someone who is playing then bench a player is who is not, and don't really have any DPP's that work in my favour. Smiths -108 BE is too good to pass up for some quick cash flow.

Southern S

Yep was thinking Oliver may come back but with Petracca in I suppose it could be tough for him to get a spot.

The Mountain

Id look to upgrade weitering. hes got a BE of 114 which will affect him for the next couple of games he plays, and will bleed a fair amount of the cash he has made you

tuxCS

Def:
H.Shaw, R.Laird, K.Simpson, K.Kolodjashnij, M.Adams, J.Weitering. (D-BJ, M.Brown)

Mid:
P.Dangerfield, G.Ablett, S.Pendelbury, O.Wines, T.Liberatore, C.Mills, B.Kennedy, C.Petracca. (R.Gray, G.Hewett, J.Gresham)

Ruck:
M.Gawn, N.Naitanui. (M.Chol)

Fwd:
A.Hall, Z.Merrett, D.Wells, D.Zorko, AMT, S.Kerridge. (L.McCarthy, C.Menadue)

The trades I'll most likely make this week are: J.Weitering to D.Tucker/T.Lee (If Lee is selected i'll play him), and B.Kennedy to J.Smith (After which I'll move S.Kerridge into the midfield for C.Petracca). This leaves me with 417k in the bank, and with a little luck, i should be able to trade Kerridge to Priddis and Liberatore or Mills to L.Parker. After these trades this is what my midfield will look like:

P.Dangerfield, G.Ablett, S.Pendelbury, O.Wines, M.Priddis, L.Parker, R.Gray, and T.Liberatore/C.Mills (depends on who i trade out.

This will leave me with an almost full premo midfield, and with already having 4 premo's in the back and forward line, it leaves me with only 5 more upgrades to make. Any thoughts would be great.

Derek

if you want Luke Parker, you need to get him this week

tuxCS

Not really, if he gets 137 he'll only rise 30K, and its improbable for me to get him this week.

Harley

If I were you I would trade weitering this week to tucker or lee if named as weitering has a high break even if 100 I believe. He probably won't play anyway. Put D-BJ on feild. Then trade Kennedy up to parked this week before he goes up in price again. Plus Sydney play essendon and could be huge score.

Dangerfield vice captain. Parker Capt if danger stuffs up.

Don't think you need smith.

tuxCS

Actually i do like that, i thought Smith was my only downgrade option but i can still get Keays next week, thanks.

Harley

Depending on how much money you have you might even be able to go Kennedy to smith. Swap petracca and menadue and trade menadue to Parker.

tuxCS

Can't afford Kennedy to Parker unfortunately, only got 2k in the bank after last week's Dea to Shaw. I'll just take the 30k price hike and get him in next week, i dont really mind 🙂

Deccas

Who to trade? Weltering Dea or Priddis? And who too?

tuxCS

Don't even think about trading priddis. One the best most consistent performers in supercoach history, he will be in the top 8 come the end of the season.

Southern S

Yeah you don't trade a premo that is playing and scoring ok, just needs to hit a couple of good games which is bound to happen.

I N Pieman

Deccas. How do you think the 50% of owners that traded Barlow are feeling. Classic example of why you don't trade Premos unless they are injured or long term suspended. Personally I'm waiting till Priddis bottoms out & I'll pick him up

Alphie

I have 264k in the Bank. Libba to Rockliff, B kennedy to Martin. Good call or bad call?

Richard

Rockliff durability questionable Kennedy to Martin good call

Southern S

Ben Kennedy only a 51 BE, but he looks like a very slow burner so understandable wanting to trade.

Libbe could be fine too. I'd look at offloading Dea and Weitering if you have them.

min0008

Dea to Smith
Weitering or Ben Kennedy to Selwood or Simpson
Thoughts?

Richard

Weitering to selwood.

Harley

Parked= Parker obviously!

Paul96

Hey Community, have a couple of potential trades to swing past everyone.

Currently ranked at 912 and being my first season Im feeling that I may as well take the game by the horns and use whatever beginners luck I have left!

As it stands I have 25 trades left with $522 800 cash left.
B: Shaw, Laird, Adams, Weitering, Tipungwuti, Byrne-Jones (Dea, Byrne)
M: Danger, Hanners, Pendles, Shiel, Gaff, Libba, Parish, Mills (Menadue, Hewett, Davis)
R: Gawn, Naitanui (Grimley)
F: Hall, Wells, Greene, Barlow, Kerridge, Ben Ken (Brown, McCarthy)

I currently have a lot of outs for the second round of byes and thinking of adding Parker to that list simply because his BE aint getting lower and he has obviously proven himself as a top 10 mid. I plan to fix up my list according to the byes once I start culling my rookies.

The potential trades that I'm going over are;

Dea-Rich
Weitering-Parker DPP

Dea-Houli
Weitering-Parker DPP

Dea-Martin DPP
Weitering-Rich

Dea-Cox
Davis-Parker

Thinking that maybe the first option will serve me well, simply because of Rich's ability to play in the midfield if need be.

Was hoping to get the community's opinions, any feedback is greatly appreciated! 🙂

tuxCS

I like option 1, but just be very careful with rich, HE CANNOT HANDLE A TAG. He's the most hopeless player when he's given any attention.

Paul96

Thanks for the advise, is McVeigh a safer option?

Southern S

No not really, just returned from injury and also has a high BE of 132. That saying Rich is also high risk.

Personally I wouldn't trade either of them in this week, but I'd seriously consider McVeigh in a couple of weeks he is a proven supercoach scorer.

tuxCS

McVeigh long term is a safe option, but as southern said, he's coming off of an injury rn, in about 3-4 weeks I reckon he'll hit his stride and come home strong.

Southern S

Option 4.

Southern S

Actually maybe 2…….

breakevens

Is there are way to trade Dea to someone like Josh Smith

Derek

yes, using the Dual Position players you have on other lines

Southern S

Yep if you have a FWD/DEF player currently in the forwardline (ie Tippa/Adams/Brown)

And a MID/FWD player in the Midfield (ie Ben Ken/Menadue)

You trade Dea, move DP forward player into defense.

Move DP midfield player up forward.

Will be a midfield spot now to trade in Josh Smith.

magpie4ver

I have Shaw and Simpson who would be the next best defender?

Cheers!

TRIGGER HAPPY

Laird

Southern S

Agree Laird racks up disposals and is very reliable. (then tomorrow we'll find out he's out injured!)

tuxCS

I'm praying if at all its only for 1 week.

tuxCS

Providing he's not injured, Laird, racks up disposals like a premo midfielder. Love him.

tuxCS

How many of you people on here are in a league called Low Expectations? We're currently ranked 7th in overall leagues and it would be interesting to see how many people from this site are taking part in it.

I N Pieman

I'm in the 4th ranked league & also 27th & 62nd. Low expectations should review its name. 7th is brilliant

tuxCS

What's your team name Pieman? Mine is Scorpions V

Nifty

I'm in mate..

I N Pieman

Same as my name on here dude

I N Pieman

Scorpions you traded out Barlow! That must be painful now. And grabbing Robbie Gray. He's out for another 2-3 so get rid of him. But your timing was spot on with grabbing Shaw for Dea last week. 100 point right there

tuxCS

How did you know i made those trades? I dont regret trading out Barlow because i downgraded him to Papley, and he more or less allowed me to make 4 premium upgrades, so its fine by me 🙂 I would've rather picked Parker but Gray will be a top 8 midfielder by the end of the year.

SCaddict

There are no Supercoach secrets mate!

tuxCS

Well i had absolutely no idea that was a thing haha, thanks Glenn.

SCaddict

Yep I'm in Low Expectations although currently 0-4 so the league would likely be ranked even higher if I wasn't in it ha ha.

tuxCS

I'm only going 1-3 myself, don't worry about it mate 🙂
