The Round 7 AFL Cheat Sheet

Published by Jock on

Supercoach 2016 midpriced forwardsG’day Community Lekdog here,

It’s been a tough week for injuries and low scores but I’m here to help guide you to glory. For once we have a few downgrade options outside of defense and a few premos who are ripe for the picking.

I’ll note that I haven’t included Grimley or Howard in this cheat sheet because they aren’t very good at football, however with Lobbe going down it looks like Port will have to stick with Howard so keep him on your radar for CoachKings (probably not Supercoach or AFL Fantasy).

Let me know what you think Community, who do we chop and who do we pick?

Good work Lek!

Phil

Oh wow hope he's ok? Good on ya Lek!!

LEKD0G

Thanks mate, all good. Just a scratch to the cornea nothing a few drugs can't clear up!

Phil

Thats good mate! Get well!

@an3vilmonk3y

It's the mo. It gives him power.

EdCavey

Inspirational man…

LEKD0G

Do it for the Community Jock!

Bomber56

Lekdog will you ever have the time to make your weekly videos?
They were very enjoyable 🙂

LEKD0G

Cheers man, I'll try work something out for midseason when I'm on uni break

Phil

Yeah have to agree miss and love the vids! Classic!

Saintsational

Smith or Cox for maximum cash generation?

Dave

I reckon Smith, lower break even, more points = more cash sooner.

LEKD0G

Smith will give more cash short term (and probably longterm)

Saintsational

Cheers fellas

Bomber56

Don't know which is better this week.

Double downgrade to Smith and Cox
or
Smith and Parker

with one I hopefully get lots of cash for upgades and some DPP the other I am getting certian points and a locked in premium

hedski

Similar thinking here bomber.
I have no ruck backup (goldy/gawn/loersch) so its tempting to swing big cox around on the fwd bench.
Keen to bring in a simpson/dusty type but might be better double upgrade next week.
Smith is a no brainer.
Any ideas on the big cox dilemma community?
Great work lekdog ya one eyed wonder.

LEKD0G

Hey fellas, I'm generally always a paint the fence guy, one down one up. I too don't have any ruck cover so that's tempting em to do the rare double downgrade…
I reckon I'll end up just going Smith and if I have ruck problems later in the year pray that a rookie pops up

Phil

That's what I'm doing. Hate to pass on Cox's but have to. Saying I hate to pass on Cox's sounds weird!

Phil

But I'm passing on Cox's! Literally!

50_Shades

In true 50 Shades style I'm injecting cox into an open slot this week.

Dean

And what a HUGE cox it is Rex…

hedski

Prob way to go. I'm thinking simpson this week and leave the def 4 deep plenty of good rooks still playing there (adams/tippa/dbj/brown/rug) and sharpen the knives for menapoo and co.

Youngster

So if you do the double downgrade this week, how will you get in Petracca and Keays next when they (and potentially others) are on the bubble? Surely a double downgrade this week means double upgrade next week? If you don't have Petracca, you'd need to do another downgrade to grab him. This will leave massive warchest but really hurt the point scoring for several weeks whilst you try and inject the premos.

Just something to think about for next week when you want to upgrade but once again have some reasonable bubble boys you "must have".

hedski

I'll go one up one down. I have petracca and will look at keays and another upgrade next week. Cheers

Boltons blues

Martin v Zorko
Who averages more from here on out
Is Zorko worth the extra 60k?

Tone

Get Martin now, Zorko later…

Steeeve

Beams back hurts zorko. Lids back helps dusty. Expect dusty to be at least as good as zorko from here, if not better.

Benjamima Puddleduck

im not sure how that statement works..
Double standard comment.

Steeeve

Incorrect. Dusty scores better when Lids plays because Lids takes the forward spot. Dusty goes midfield more because the Tiges have Lids as a target up forward instead.
Beams will take away some of Zorro's mid time, pushing him forward.
More mid time equals more points.

Southern S

In turn tigers do better, Lids scores well.

Will be looking at Lids as a potential FWD keeper the guy is a gun and will be a POD.

Double Dutch

I agree.

LEKD0G

If I'm getting one this week it's Dusty

Boltons blues

I'm going the double upgrade, Dea and weitering to Simpson and Martin

50_Shades

I'm waiting one more week on Martin. Yeah, it'll cost me $10k, maybe 15, but just not convinced enough.

marcus

josh smith or cox?
feel like smith will make more money but cox can be bench cover for my ruck

LEKD0G

Smith and pray for no injuries

Jacob

Does dea for Boyd and tippa for cox sound good ?

Matt

yes

LEKD0G

YES!

min0008

Which option is better?

Double downgrade to Cox and Smith or
Smith and Simpson.

Will be trading Weitering and Dea

Pinidu

Community, I need your help. I have several possible trade routes and I need your advice on deciding which one…

27 Trades left. 488K in the bank.

Problems: Weitering, Dea, Laird (will hold), Kennedy, Menadue, Davis, McCarthy
Current premiums: Shaw, Laird, Houli, GAZ, Danger, Pendles, Priddis, Gawn, Nic Nat, Barlow, Hall + Greene

Option 1)
Dea –> Simpson
(Play AMT and DBJ for Weiters and Laird)
Then Weitering –> Rance next week

Option 2)
Dea –> Simpson
Davis/Menadue –> Rockliff

Option 3)
Dea –> Simpson
Weitering –> Tucker
(Painting the fence)

Option 5)
Dea –> Simpson
Menadue –> J. Smith

Option 6)
Dea –> Simpson
McCarthy/Papley/Kennedy –> Dusty Martin

My season is at crossroads Community, and I need your advice.
Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

tuxCS

It honestly depends on whether you want to keep a healthy balance in the warchest or if you want to get closer to full premo. if its the second option then number 6 for me.

Pinidu

I would like to go premo. The reason why I wouldn't mind spending the war chest now is becuase I can downgrade to Petracca, Keays etc next week and build it up again.

LEKD0G

I like 6 and probably Papley of those three

Pinidu

Thanks Lekdog. So you fancy Dusty over Rocky?

LEKD0G

Rocky has killed me in the last two years, I'm thinking this is Dustys turning point and he has DPP. Check your bye structure before deciding though

Southern S

Agree rocky is not trustworthy, needs to string together more than a few games to be convinced.

50_Shades

Papley' playing essendon this week… And only has a BE of 2, r u sure Lekdog

LEKD0G

Not gonna lie, thought his B/E was 52. Hold him haha

Pinidu

Who needs to go first out of McCarthy and BenKen? (By 'go' I mean trade out)

Jimmy

BenKen. I reckon McCarthys still good for at least 50k

mick

27 trades left lol bullshite

Pinidu

You reckon I'm joking do ya? I've made three trades this season:
Rockliff –> Ben Kennedy
Brown –> DBJ
Fyfe –> Priddis

Benny

Going menadue to smith this week.
Choice of kennedy to cox or
Weitering to tucker?

LEKD0G

Cox a better prospect than Tucker but Kennedy should make a little more cash…

BiggySc

Hi community, I'm a bit unsure about who to trade in and for whom.

Defenders:

Byrne-Jones D, Laird R, Adams M,
Gibson J, Weitering J, Dea M (Byrne C, Ruggles T)

Midfielders:
Dangerfield P, Parker L, Coniglio S, Gray R, Liberatore T,
Priddis M, Mills C, Young A (Davis R, Hewett G, Dunkley J)

Rucks:
Gawn M, Naitanui N (Grimley S)

Forwards:
Hall A, Wells D, Kerridge S, Greene T,
Kennedy B, McDonald-Tigungwut (Menadue C, Brown M)

$826400 Left over

Now because I have plenty of money in the war chest, I'm wondering if I still need to bring in bubble boys like cox and smith now or simply upgrade to two premos this week and downgrade to petracca next week instead.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

The Mountian

upgrade mate. your backline looks very weak to me mate and laird out doesnt help. Id go dea and weitering to shaw and simpson/boyd.

bAps

That is a ridiculous amount of money to have sitting in the bank. It's probably costing you over 120 points per game. your defence is paper thin, double upgrade.

Dean

Laird will be out for 2 or 3 weeks but still keep him.

Your priority first trade is Weitering straight to Shaw, you wont get him cheaper and this leaves you with $602,000

2nd trade do either Menadue or Kennedy via DPP bring in Josh Smith in the midfield which will leave you with either $720,900 if you trade Menadue or if you trade out Kennedy you will have $795,500

Its pointless for you to bring Cox in because you have Grimley in your ruck as a playing emergency so no point wasting that trade.

Then next week (round 8) Dea to Simpson or who ever you prefer and only if Petracca scores 65+ consider bringing him in otherwise I think its just a waste of a trade bringing in Petracca. Say Petracca scores a shitty 45 this week don't bother wasting a trade on him in round 8. if he does score shit upgrade either Kennedy or Menadue to Dusty Martin as Martin has a Breakeven of 90.

Your priority is Weitering to Shaw this week mate.

Dean

Chances are Weitering will be out for 2 weeks so in that case don't trade him to Shaw, trade Dea this week to Shaw and then Weitering to Simpson or whoever you like in round 8

50_Shades

I like it Dean.

Josh

Money is not your issue, points is. With laird our tour only defence premo Is Gibson who could go big or give you peanuts.

Horrible idea to trade dea instead of weitering. Should be looking to upgrade both soonish, but as you ate already one short keep the player that is playing. Weits is not even useful to you as a loophole and you can use laird for that purpose anyway. Take the hit on dea's price as it won't be significant and you don't need it anyway, his points may be more useful to you.

Double upgrade is an option but I think it is worth getting in smith as dean gas said, he can be played on field straight away and will make money quick, keeping that stock for upgrades which you will be able to do plenty of over the next few rounds, specially with some good options going cheap.

The Rebounding Def

Smart thinking.

tuxCS

Trust Lek to still deliver when he can only see out of one eye, we love you mate!

LEKD0G

Love you too you Charmander loving bastard

Pinidu

Hear, hear!! Inspiring commitment from Lek.

judd0

Community, I'm currently holding Laird and Gray and really want to get Smith and Cox however I could paint the fence this week rather than double downgrade.
I have so much money sitting on the bench I am worried by going a double downgrade I am having to many rookies on the field and costing me points.
Currently ranked in the top 2% I do want to stay up here.
If I do the double downgrade this week I will be doing a double upgrade next week as I'll have 570k in the bank.
I think I can afford to have one slow week for the greater cash generation, thoughts?

LEKD0G

Back yourself mate, a lot of people will have rookies onfield (I'll probably have 3 in defence)
Cash generation is key leading into the byes

Hoot

I'm ranked 101 overall and am keeping both Gray and Laird on the bench. Ill lose positions this week I know, BUT, ill save trades (long term). IMO those who trade out shirt term injured players will not likely be in contention week 18 onwards.

Double rookie purchase this week with Smith and Petracca to raise funds for the following weeks double Premo buy ins.

Besides… SYD play ESS so Mills and Hew will score decent. As will Smith against the Blues.

VC Danger C Hanners (based on previous scores versus respective opponents).

Southern S

Seeing as Petracca isn't on the bubble this week why not just get Smith and a premo this week, will keep your points up and hopefully hold your rank.

It just doesn't seem logical to do a double downgrade this week unless getting two guys ont he bubble.

50_Shades

I like southerns suggestion.

Ethan

Do a double downgrade to get cox and smith or the classic 1 up 1 down (and out of smith and cox who's gunna be the better rookie?)

LEKD0G

I like the painting of the fence, Smith will make the most cash

50_Shades

If you can paint the fence with two hands, get em both!

Southern S

No mention of Dougal Howard on the bubble, surprised especially considering Lobbe out for 12 weeks.

Kev

Read Lek's notes at the start of the article

LEKD0G

Hey mate, mentioned him in the intro paragraph. Biggest issue is he doesn't score and is FWD only

Southern S

Ok thanks lek!

I like the reasoning, plain and simple 'not very good at football'

Made me lol.

Roj

Tippa & Weitering = Smith & Simpson?

LEKD0G

Looks good

Pacca

Hi Roj
Go Boro!!!!!!

Dasha

Dusty or Dahl?

LEKD0G

Dusty as he is almost at his lowest price point

jimmy

DEF- Laird, Houli, Adams, Weitering, Dea, DBJ (Byrne, Ruggles)
MID- Dangerfield, Hannebery, Ward, Zieball, Shiel, Priddis, Parish (Hewett, Davis, Greasham)
Ruck- Gawn, Nic Nat (Lorensch)
FWD- Hall, Wells, Kerridge, De Goey, Benken, Tipungwuiti (Menadue, Petracca)

got 462k in the bank what trades should i make
been away for a few days how bad are weits and lairds injuries

50_Shades

Maybe Weitering and davis so you can inject some cash with the two Magpie rookies.

LEKD0G

Weitering and Laird will be out for 2-3 hold Laird

The Mountain

Weits to shaw and maybe dea to cox via tippa

@RoyWetard

I'm considering holding Weitering for a week or two and getting rid of Dea instead since he isn't going to be losing money and I have Brown on my bench.

LEKD0G

Not a bad plan

CoachDamo

I'm doing the same – Dea and Sheridan have to go, Weitering can hold on for a week or 2!

Southern S

I'd get rid of both personally, paint the fence if you have no warchest.

Matt

Hey Lek am I better off bringing in Dusty or Boyd/Simpson this week? I have laird on the pine and I already have doc and shaw

LEKD0G

Tough, Simpson and Martin are ahead of Boyd.

Martin at bottom price for him

Tommo09

Hey community
I have 2 options this week and can't decide

Fyfe to Smith and Weiters to Simpson $600k left
Or
Fyfe to Hanners and Davis to Smith $300k left

Ranked in top 2000

Iamme

For me i'd go option 2…Hanners is a bona fide gun

The Mountain

judging from the info you gave you could probably have enough to go fyfe to hanners and weits to simpson

Tommo09

I don't want to miss smith though

Southern S

Option 2.

The Mountain

You can grab petracca next week mate

The Mountain

If you want to double upgrade that is

WATCH LIST

Most of these are midfielders because this is where the points are found

TIPS
While there is lots of players inform at the moment, don’t be to quick to jump on the score bandwagon, or as Jock and Peter would say “Don’t follow the points”. Many people will be quick to jump on some of the rookies that scored and some of the other players who have finally shot into form. Instead sit back and observe their scores. We don’t want to be wasting any trades this week or any other week for that matter. Stick to your premo’s and try and sideways trade less if you can.

This post took a while to make so I would appreciate it if you would show your support

Iamme

Thanks for all the effort there @stewy_chewy….Lots of interesting info for us all.

Rooster

Seriously how many times do you need to post this!!

Rick Grimes

Why do we need to support something we didn't ask for? Now if this was Chewychewy .com, I'd be obliged to upvote you. But it's not.

50_Shades

Don't feel obliged. If it tells me something I don't know show my appreciation.
It may save us a bit of searching if you're interested in any of that info.
if not I'll just move on to the next post.

LEKD0G

Impressive mate

Westy

DEF- Laird, Boyd, Adams, Weitering, Sheridan, DBJ (Dea, Brown)
MID- Dangerfield, Ablett, Ward, Selwood, Sidebottom, M Crouch, Libba, Kerridge (Mils, Davis, Dunkley)
Ruck- Goldstein, Gawn (Grimley)
FWD- Hall, Montagna, Wells, D Menzel, Benken, Tipungwuiti (McCarthy, Papley)

Following options proposed
1 Weitering to Shaw, BenKen to Cox
2 Weitering to Shaw, BenKen to J Smith (Kerridge to FWD, Mills onto field)

I'd like to dispose of Sheridan next week – probably move AMT to the back line and get Petracca.

Tommo09

Maybe it's just me but I like number 2 as smith has a lower BE

Iamme

I like the second option there Westy. J.Smith has good job security at the moment, however imo If Mason has a bad one I think we will see Travis Cloke back taking his spot.

Westy

Thanks folks, I got impatient and got rid of Sheridan (who has been a giant potato) and Weitering to go to Shaw and Smith.

Petracca for Dea next week.

@stewy_chewy

Josh Smith
Position: Midfield
Price: $102,400
Breakeven: -108
This rookie was solid on his debut. Finishing with 72 points, backing it up against the Eagles Sunday Night is what has got us talking about him. Smith Polled 96 Supercoach points over at Domain Stadium and is now everyone’s downgrade target. With great Job Security and expected price rise of $85,000 now is the time to jump on. You can pick him up for $102,400

Mason Cox
Position: Forward/Ruck
Price: $117,300
Breakeven: -73
After starring in the pies ANZAC day win , the American was given another week in the senior team for a return of 67 points from 10 touches and two goals. His forward-ruck status gives a great edge to your side if you already have Essendon’s Sam Grimley, as you will have the ability to rotate them in either line.

Phil

So if you had to choose between 1 of the 2 who would you take?

tuxCS

Look, your contribution is good, but that mason cox part is basically only slightly altered from the SuperCoachPaige website. Nobody likes plagiarism.

Derek

I really don't like the Cox selection.

Mister_Spock

Laird, Rance and Weitering in my back line. Happy days.

50_Shades

Yep, it's a great situation isn't it. Still not quite sure how to manage it. Let's see what fun team selections bring tonight.

GoHawks

Right there with you.

Bye-bye Weitering this week, and cross fingers that the remaining guys play, with Rance & Laird on the pine.

james

is Pittard a good POD he seems like the only port that wants to be there

Phil

Is he a keeper?

Southern S

Or he's had an increased workload due to the team being terrible recently?

Tommo09

Hey community
Hanners or Smith for Fyfe

Smith for cash, Hanners for points

Kev

Super premo for super premo

tuxCS

as Kev said.

50_Shades

It would be ballsy to go for the cash and pick up Hanners later.

Shake n bake

I'm painting the fence this week Dea to Smith weitering to either Boyd Simpson or Docherty please help who might avg more? I'm thinkin Docherty.

Mister_Spock

Simpson for consistency

Jimmy

I think Boyd will average more but will more likely miss more games.

LEKD0G

Simpson

Gord29

Great work lekdog. One question for the community Boyd Houli Simpson or another option current backline is Shaw Docherty Bartel Adams and DBJ

Jess_coach

Simpson or Boyd. Probobly only thing splitting them is whoever suits your byes better.

Houli if you're happy with an inconsistent rollercoast ride of 60 one week and 130 another. The fact that richmond stink abit this year makes me question Houli. IMO he is the type of player that benefits when the whole team is going well.

Gord29

Thanks for the feedback, I'm currently running with Boyd just because of the fact I have Docherty.

LEKD0G

I'm looking at bringing Rich in this week

Eric_the_Red

So Laird and Gray have stung me. I traded Dea to Smith and have decided to hold Laird. Thoughts on next trade? My options are:
Weitering to Boyd
Gray to Hanners
Gray to Martin or Greene via DPP.

Over to you community. Jock? Lek? Fire away.

Joe

I'm in the same boat, don't know whether to hold grey or trade ??????

Phil

I think you should hold gray…..he will most likely bounce back?

Power

Gray will probably be another 3 weeks looking at the draw and Hinkley is unlikely to risk. I traded him for Parker last week but will get him back

LEKD0G

I'd hold Gray and trades Weiters up

The Jones DD

Is Libba playing this week

Dillon Panthers

Libba named in the pivot

Jess_coach

To regain a Def/Fwd DPP link, I've gone:

Kennedy (fwd) to Tucker (def)
And
Dea to Boyd

These trades aren't ideal, but give me more freedom for future trades. Sound acceptable?

Gord29

Not sold on tucker but it definitely gives you flexibility for later on which is a huge bonus

Jess_coach

Yeah he could be the last decent defender for a while

Phil

Why do so many wanna boot BenKen? His BE is low very obtainable and they are playing the Suns this weekend. He still get cash watch, I'm keeping him for 1 more week just like I did papley and everyone traded him out a few fortnights ago. I still have Papley too! So quick to rush and trade

50_Shades

I think benken has had enough opportunities from an SC perspective. If other bigger issues to deal with is hold, but if I was bringing in some rookies on the bubble, I'd axe him.

Phil

I'm looking to axe him next week for Petracca

HOLLA

I have (as many do) Weitering laird out for up to 3. But i also have t.adams out and not sure how long for. Weitering im culling, im holding laird, what to do with t.adams.
Thoughts please.

Tommy

Adams needs to pass a fitness test to play

HOLLA

Ive read that hes not gonna play this week and his knee isnt progressing as well as hoped.

Tommy

AFL.com says "test"

HOLLA

Hardly credible.

Tommy

surely, you would expect the main website for the AFL would have some sort of an insight

HOLLA

I think i read it on cfc website

HOLLA

Anyhow should i upgrade or hold til the byes then upgrade if needed?

Tommy

If they are saying that it is short term/test, then it won't be anymore than a week or so, in which i would hold.

HOLLA

So is it ok to have 2 players (1m salary) sitting on the bench for multiple weeks?

Tommy

laird is a must keep, not many reliable defenders this year. If you have enough, upgrade Adams to an ultra premo. Don't just go to a premo as it would be too much of a sideways trade.

Jimmyf

Hope so as I have 3 (Gray, Laird, Rance)

Clarky

If we have traded out Barlow during the early rounds, does that mean we shouldn't bring him in again this season? Would it be considered wasting a trade?

Phat Man

Yes its a waste of a trade, im in the same boat. sadly i trade him out early but I wont be looking to bring him back in anytime soon as it would sting to much

FootyFanatic

Do you really want to be burned by the same guy twice? I learnt my lesson last year with Rockliff and won't be making that mistake again.

Southern S

Agree with these guys, although I traded Rocky out earlier in the year I am considering bringing him in later, ie for finals if he's 100%.

clarky

yeah, if i was to bring him in, it was going to be the latter part of the season

Jimmy

I disagree, you have to let go of the past in this game and pick the best available player

Southern S

Yes and no, Rocky was injured only two weeks ago…………..

Derek

Of course not. Don't worry about what has gone. Look ahead and make decisions now that will give you a better team in the future.

Don't be surprised if I trade Lobbe back in when he is fit again 😉

50_Shades

I reckon it's a bit of pride that makes it hard to bring in one of these guys again. You chose him at the beginning, you used a trade on him, you feel like you're admitting a failure. who cares… If he's good now, but wasn't then, do you really want to miss out on the points they could generate from here on out.

Main issue is reliability for me. Barlow has had a change of role, so id be confident whereas with rocky I'd need to be sure he's going to be around…

Power

Go for it if you want him. I've traded out Gray but will definitely get him back, it might cost me 3 trades but 3 weeks out is my limit

Kevdog

Davis to Josh Smith
Dea to Matt Boyd

31k left in the bank

good trades ?

tom

yep

Danners

Good trades

wazzamuzza

Just wonderign whats best thing to do with shrieden (DEF) from freeo?

tom

trade the piece of waste

HOLLA

Sheridan you sub-human piece of human garbage!

Jimmy

Trade him for someone thats capable of tackling and can get a contested possession.

John

Thinking about trading weitering for Tom Lee. Holding Laird and maybe upgrading zaharakis to a premo because it looks like he isn't gonna rise in cash anymore. I could also trade out Matt Crouch or Marcus Adams and pick up someone like dusty or Barlow.

Thoughts?

tom

tom lee has to get picked first. Wait for teams, was dropped last week.

Southern S

Keep Zaharakis and Adams, Crouch is a trade I'd consider.

Tom Lee is risky and will most likely be in and out all year, might get recalled this week due to North having three talls in the forward line, could miss many weeks after who knows.

Tucker is probably a safer bet from a job security perspective.

Hoot

What happened to MONEYBALL?

Wasn't it the hot marketing topic of these forums in 2015?

Is Narelle involved?

Phil

Obviously not anymore a thing of the past mate!

Many may know this, but I didn't. You can trade Dea to Smith via MBrown AND Menadue (that's right, as Jock might say, it's three way bloody DPP trading wizardry!)
Trade Dea, swing Brown from fwd to defence, swing Menadue from mid to fwd, then pick Snith to fill the vacant spot in your midfield! Just keep hitting the big S in the trade windows until you can trade in the right position. I would say there is no limit other than your existing swing sets. Definitely opens up some more trade options and reinforces the importance of DPP players.

Hoot

Yeah I believe your correct as this was not allowed in previous years. If I recall, I attempted the concept in 2013 and was a bit frustrated that it wasn't an option. I can see this being very handy come the bye rounds.

Bomber56

Is it time to look at moving Libba on if he does not play this week?

Iamme

Desperate times call for desperate measures…. I'm seriously considering bringing in Daisy, If he can score around 85 most weeks and still have the occasional 120 plus he will average 90+…..Not too shabby if you play him forward imo.

LEKD0G

Would rather see you look at a Matthew Wright or a full premo player, don't like Daisy

Southern S

If you're considering Daisy you are in a dark place!

Iamme

Oh I am in a dark place, currently 42878 after finishing 659 last season….I really need to take some risks, to try and get back up there. down to 23 trades if I do Daisey for Fyfe and Dea for J.Smith.

50_Shades

He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, he loves me not…. Good luck

Def: Shaw, Laird, Adams, Weitering, Rich, DBJ, Bench: Mitch Brown, Ruggles

Mid: Parker,Danger, Ablett, Sam Mitchell, Zaha, Pendles, Libba, Matt Crouch, Bench: Hewett, Davis,Snadden

Ruck: Gawn, Naitanui bench: Grimley

Fwd: Hall, Wells, Wright, Kerridge, De Goey, McDonald- Tipungwuti bench: Papley, Menadue

Thinking of trading weitering for tucker, Holding laird, and maybe taking out crouch.

Thoughts?

Hayley

Struggle street now in defence. Pre-trading I have Laird, Rance and Weitering in my back 8 and no half decent priced rookie on the bench in the guts to replace with Smith. I have 2* options, as I'm not keen on trading Rance or Laird:

*1 option means I have 3 other options lol

Option 1:
Out -> Weitering, Menadue
In -> Smith, Rich/Yeo/B Smith

Option 2:
Out -> Weitering, Mills
In -> Smith, Barlow

Option 2 is winning for now, super risky getting rid of Mills now, as he's a pretty consistent performer and in my starting 22 as well, but I don't think he's going to get much more valuable that now. Maybe 30-50k at most, at a slow trickle too. Barlow is going off his head with Fyfe out of the team….he's their number 1 in and under bloke now, going to get 30+ every week…don't think I'll be able to afford him later, whereas I think Smith/Yeo/Rich will still be affordable in the near future.

Advice would be great! Thanks!

CoachDamo

I'd try to keep Mills if possible. I don't mind the look of Option 1 – bring in Smith and a premium defender (if you have the funds – maybe Shaw, Docherty, Simpson…).

I'm still looking at options too. I'll keep Laird, but I need to deal with Dea and Sheridan so I might keep Weitering.

Hayley

Don't have the funds for a top end premo. Only have 462,400k

Hayley

If I'm trading out Menadue that is. He is the most valuable mid bench I have.

Hayley

Actually, now I look again, I could swing Menadue forward for M McGovern and have 503,600, which would give me enough for Barlow! haha

Phil

Dont dump mills….he has plenty of cash to make! Look for someone else to dump…..but not mills will be a big mistake

MaccasMarvels

Yes, to Phil you listen (sort of in the words of the great Yoda).

Mills needs to be held for now.

50_Shades

I'd like the Double Smith combo in option 1 with fries and coke please.

Hayley

I'll get him next week lol

Jim

K. Simpson, J. Bartel, M. Adams, A. McDonald-Tipungwuti, M. Brown, D. Byrne-Jones. (LAIRD, T. Ruggles)
P. Dangerfield, D. Hannebery, C. Ward, G. Ablett, J. Selwood, S. Pendlebury, D. Parish, C. Mills. (LIBBA, Davis, Dunkley)
T. Goldstein, S. Martin (Loersch)
A. Hall, D. Wells, M. Barlow, T. Papley, L. McCarthy, B. Kennedy (Menadue, KERRIDGE)

The one's in capitals are injured or rumoured to be. Only injury I'm concerned about is laird. Should laird be held or moved on? Also, where are the trading points? Menadue is absolute crap so looking at a possible Cox. Only trouble is that I'm on 23 trades and my bye rounds will be trade heavy so looking to hold onto a few trades. $43,000 in the bank what are my options? The bench coverage is being stretched thin. Cheers.

Derek

Do you want Shaw? If so get him this week.

Paul

If Libba plays this week, trade out Parish (peaked already value wise, not worth keeping him if he's just going to sit on the bench) for Josh Smith, then you can trade out either AMT or Adams for Heath Shaw. If Libba doesn't play, then you can trade him out for Smith and trade Mitch Brown for Heath Shaw.

Ben

Ive already got Sam Grimley in R3
Should i trade him for Mason Cox?

Phil

Wow that tough….. but I say yes? Just hope its not a waste of a trade?

Phil

Granted I dont know the rest of ur team…..grimley is better option than cox based on price and value?

Ben

My Team:
DEF: Shaw, Laird, Kolodashjni, Fantasia, M Adams, Darcy Byrne (Weitering, Ruggles)
MID: Dange, Hanners, Mithcell, Pendles, Wines, Libba, Parish, Mills (Clayton O, R Davis, Jade G)
FOR: Hall, Zorko, Wells, Anthony, Kerridge, Kennedy (M Brown, Connor Menadue)

🙂

LEKD0G

Could trade Oliver, swing Menadue into the mids and bring in Cox for Ruck/Forward swing

Phil

Correction Cox is a better option not grimley

Josh

If you want to get him don't sideways trade grimly, downgrade menadue instead, if you want to get rid of grimly later then cox is sitting on your forward bench ready to be subbed into you ruck. he is fine staying in your fwd line earning cash as he looks pretty reliable for the scores he has been getting with scope for improvement.

JamiesNinjas13

Waste of a trade by a mile, this is a sideways trade and Cox is not a must have

Wayno76

I have traded Weitering for Barlow and Dea for Smith my problem now is I have Libba on the ground with no mid cover as I have R Gray on mid bench. Thinking maybe I should keep Weitering for one more week and trade either Gray or Libba so I don't have a doughnut on the ground

Laurie

Just wondering how you can trade Weitering to Barlow when they are different positions?

Wayno76

Swing Adams into defence on the trade screen

Simmo_mate

You might be able to pick grey up cheaper later on if you don't want a 0

Paul

If Libba plays this week, trade out Parish (peaked already value wise, not worth keeping him if he's just going to sit on the bench) for Josh Smith, then you can trade out either AMT or Adams for Heath Shaw. If Libba doesn't play, then you can trade him out for Smith and trade Mitch Brown for Heath Shaw.

Paul

Pls delete, admin! 😀

Phil

Why would you trade libba based on 1 week? NO!

Noigerbour

Bang bang

Southern S

Trade Mitch brown out with a BE of 0? He's just starting to make money……………

Paul

I think you're failing to see the big picture. It's heath shaw

50_Shades

Get the big picture, but I'd be keen to find another way than a rookie with a zero BE who man just be finding his straps.

Southern S

Well I have heath Shaw already so don't have to make poor moves to get him.

Paul

It was a misplaced post, was supposed to be a reply to someone else who was trying to get Shaw in.

Boltons blues

I've had cox since the start of the year to use with grimley so this doesn't apply to me really.
I don't understand why people are taking smith, yes he gives you a downgrade option, yes you can make a quick dollar on him, but, next week providing they keep their spots, you have Keyes and petracca on the bubble.
I think petracca has better JS then all 3 of them and Keyes is slightly ahead of smith.

And if you're trading in cox, I can't see him playing the remaining games, wouldn't surprise me if he got dropped this week, they want Cloke back and he is the obvious selection to replace him with

I just personally think people are jumping the gun on these 2

Phil

lol ok

Noigerbour

Bang

Southern S

Keays is likely to be dropped for beams. Plus you have Mathieson that might come in at some point.

People have rookies like Dea, Weitering, Kennedy, Menadue, AMT, Parish and Davis to trade out.

Not to mention the piles of failed mid pricers and injured players.

I'm just not sure who you expect them to trade down to?

Noigerbour

Bang

Derek

Kesys will need to play well to keep his place. He is playing forward and out of his usual position.

Petracca might be an OK pick for next week

Derek

I would have gone with Petracca this week, but Shaw managed to beat his BE now I'm $1400 short if I get Petracca. Smith is cheaper.

Paul

Smith deserves to be picked on his output alone. The fact he's only 102k is just a massive bonus.

Brook

you need a lot of rookies to get to full premo … esp if some if your starters are duds, eg. menadue, davis (we all have them). These two this week look worth it to me

james

who to get out of

Hanley

sloane

neale

treloar

Southern S

No. 5 for me.

Kev

Sloane or Treloar

Danners

Treloar if you haven't got Pendlebury otherwise Sloane

Southern S

Why not lock in an ultra premo?

MACCa

Dea and weitering to smith and shaw or simpson

tuxCS

Shaw, you might want to look at simpson as your next upgrade target though.

Danners

At the moment, Shaw is a must
