RD7: The Heroes. The Villains. The Damned.

Published by Jock on

Big Carl CoachKings CommunityThe cows were ready to be slaughtered. They were in the process of being rounded up and trucked off to the meatworks.

But then something wonderful happened, Community. The cows stumbled upon some greener pastures. They started to feed again. And now, all of a sudden, they have a little more fattening up to do.

Byrne-Jones, Papley, Ben Kennedy, Mitch Brown, Tippa, Dea, Adams, Oliver and Ruggles all went over 70. New kids Petracca, Wagner, MacPherson, Hunt and Keays were all very impressive.

Of course, there were still some poor scores. Think Cox, McCarthy, Mills, Josh Smith, Menadue and Hewett. But, inconsistent performances are to be expected from our rookies.

In the scheme of things, however, this was a very good round from the young bucks.

The exciting new format of fantasy that is CoachKings keeps going from strength to strength, with more and more punters getting in on the action at venues across the country. South Australia’s Morphett Arms produced yet another national winner as the prolific Gordo produced a mammoth score of 1140 in the Friday night fixture.

The win has led to Jock to speculate that the fine patrons of this venue may indeed be on some sort of Essendon-like regime, as they keep producing the business.

The Heroes

Max Gawn (174 SC)

Is there a new number one ruckman on the block? Channelling the power of the beard, big Maxy’s performances this season have been simply monstrous. A legit captaincy option every week if he can keep this sort of form up.

Scott Pendlebury (144 SC)

He’s back! But, really, he never left. Such are our high expectations of Pendles, his early season form was considered poor, even though he only failed to ton up (89) once. A bad game from Pendles will still get you a 90, while a good match will net 150! So dependable. He just never lets you down.

Leigh Montagna (130 SC)

Wouldn’t be in too many sides due to his age and inflated price at the start of the season. But his forward status and high ceiling make him very, very tempting, especially after what he did this week. Has pumped out massive scores of 150 and 130 now. Forget about last week (70), that was just an anomaly. Get him in.

Honourable mentions:

Nick Riewoldt (142 SC), Marcus Bontempelli (140 SC), Joel Selwood (132 SC), Patrick Dangerfield (129 SC), Kade Simpson (122 SC), Matty Boyd (121 SC).

The Villains

Luke Parker (89 SC)

You can’t really be too dirty at the bloke given his previous form and the fact 90-odd is not a bad score. But many, myself included, were depending on him as their captain and he let us down. Against Essendon we were all hoping for another mammoth score. Sadly, it wasn’t to be.

Gary Ablett (82 SC)

What’s the deal, Rocket? You play your best player up forward and you get embarrassed at home by a run-of-the-mill (yet up and coming) Melbourne side? Hmm, now I don’t know a lot about coaching, but I would say maybe play your best midfielder in the guts in the future if you are planning on winning any more games for the season. Just a tip.

Full cred to Gaz for the way he handled that dickhead supporter after the match, though.

Bacher Houli (57 SC) Oh, Bacher. Did brilliantly to lure many people in with a good start to the season. But followed this up by scoring under 60 in three of his past four matches. Not ideal for a premo defender. Seems to be following a pattern of either scoring a ton or performing very poorly. No consistency what so ever.  Ramadan is coming up soon as well, and Bacher traditionally does not score well during this period. Very concerning.

Honourable mentions: Sam Mitchell (late withdrawal), Matt Priddis (74 SC), Michael Barlow (65 SC), Toby Greene (60 SC), Brett Deledio (61 SC), Eddie Betts (57 SC), Jarrad Waite (49 SC).

The Redeemers

Stef Martin (119 SC) Clearly benefited from Port’s unusual tactic of not playing a ruckman. Looks to have recovered from being steamrolled by Steven May a couple of weeks back. Dominated in the ruck and around the ground. Under-priced (470K) if you need to upgrade, but I still have Gawn, Nic Nat and Goldy well ahead of him. 

Dayne Zorko (111 SC) Bit harsh to put him in this segment because he has hardly put a foot wrong this year. Is currently the highest scoring forward in the comp and has been pretty consistent the past couple of years. But there are those, myself included, who were severely burnt by Dayne several years ago. So much so that I put him on my never again list. But his blistering form is making me re-think this theory. Especially with the schizophrenic form of other forward premo options like Barlow and Greene.

Mitch Brown (93 SC) What a turnaround in the past two weeks. Back-to-back 90s and has looked so much better roaming around and picking off intercept marks and being a link man in defence. May be worth playing on the field next week if the current trend continues.

Honourable mentions: Dustin Martin (115 SC), Todd Goldstein (103 SC), Tom Liberatore (97 SC), Ben Kennedy (89 SC).

The Prodigies

Darcy Byrne-Jones (100 SC) With every week that passes my love grows more and more for the hyphen man. Should be your number one rookie defence option to play on the field. With Port being a tad underwhelming so far this season, they are continuing to give this young man opportunities. And boy, is he thriving.

Christian Petracca (83 SC) Should be your number one downgrade target this week. Kid is an absolute bull. Strong, hard at the contest and doesn’t shirk the issue. Melbourne have a ripper here. Dual position eligibility makes him even more tantalising.

Darcy MacPherson (76 SC) The wunderkid of the pre season, as Patch labelled him, was very impressive on debut. With Gold Coast performing deplorably in the past two weeks, more opportunities should come his way. Certainly a downgrade target when he is on the bubble next week.

Honourable mentions: Jayden Hunt (98 SC), Josh Wagner (91 SC), Tippa (82 SC), Matt Dea (78 SC), Kaiden Brand (62 SC).

The Damned

Tommy “False Hope” Sheridan (50 SC) Not sure if anyone still has him, but this is a text book lesson on why you should almost never pick mid-pricers who look the goods in pre season. It will almost always come back to bite you. Started off well in round one with 97 and has posted just one score over 65 since. Yuck.

Jordan “Burn Man” DeGoey (74 SC) Very similar case to Sheridan. Hell, we may as well throw in Lonergan and the Crouch brothers into the same category. We can’t be too hard on the young man, as it is only his second year. But forward line break out contender he is not. Been very underwhelming so far this season.

Tom “Durability” Rockliff (29 SC) Is almost as good at attracting injuries as he is at finding the footy. Don’t get me wrong, I love Rocky when he is in full flight. But his body is severely letting him down. Another, you guessed it, hamstring injury. I recommend staying well clear of him until he can string four to five games together and trust his body again.

Honourable mentions:

Matt Crouch (63 SC), Brad Crouch (50 SC), Elliott Yeo (39 SC), Mason Cox (25 SC), Lincoln McCarthy (19 SC).

Over to you Community, who were your Heroes and Villains from this round?

Paul · 09/05/2016 at 11:18

Elliot Yeo can GGF. Not going to trade him out, because you know he'll kick 5 and have 25 touches next week at Subiaco, but I'm never getting him again.

    Chill · 09/05/2016 at 11:57

    Feeling the same about KK, Paul. Useless.

      Jimbo · 09/05/2016 at 13:03

      I hear you Chill

      D-Train · 09/05/2016 at 13:25

      I had both of them to start the year – smh.
      Traded Yeo out after a couple of weeks. Glad to not be on that roller-coaster but KK is still getting on my nerves.

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 16:34

    Yo-Yo is in 13.3% of teams. Surprised.

      Marvin · 09/05/2016 at 17:04

      He's going to be in one less very soon

    Neverweaken · 09/05/2016 at 20:37

    Traded Yeo out after 2 weeks. Then watched him score. But so unreliable. Never again.

    Jimmy · 10/05/2016 at 12:26

    Went Zaccy Wiiliams over Elliot, not much of a difference

Shake n bake · 09/05/2016 at 11:21

Just the 1 trade this week Mills down to Patracca have 270k in the kitty. this would again give me my mid fwd swing back & around 470k.

    TheFyfeAwakens · 09/05/2016 at 11:38

    I feel the same mate, but should we be thinking about upgrading him to get the points in the mid?

      Shake n bake · 09/05/2016 at 12:08

      I think he can avg more than Mills here on. It gives me back my mid fwd swing aswell witch is important for me. I'm hoping to upgrade menadue & AMT the week after to a premo fwd & def.

Average Joe · 09/05/2016 at 11:25

Do we trade out Rocky? I thought about it and the only way I can get Dusty in this week and Montagna/Other premo next week is by trading him out

    Tommo · 09/05/2016 at 11:30

    Yup, just not reliable anymore, and if its a genuine Hammy injury, he is gone for 3-4 weeks

    bUCKET__ · 09/05/2016 at 15:16

    From what was reported on the afl website, it's not likely a bad hammy and he'll be back soon. But Leppa said that it was nerve related, an ongoing sorta issue to manage and a recurrence of the preseason twinge.

    Wish it was reported earlier. Not having that timebomb sitting in my team! Rocky -> either Pendles or Jelwood for me.

Average Joe · 09/05/2016 at 11:27

Also is keays a worthy downgrade option, or should I wait a week and get Macpherson in?

Derek · 09/05/2016 at 11:29

I can't really complain about Wingard, he beat his season average. However, I would expect a player of his ability in a team that just won by near 300 pts and no Grays in the guts he could have done a little better than 76.

He is now $396k, and I bet no one is considering him.

    Mac · 09/05/2016 at 11:32

    Has a 124 break even

    Steeeve · 09/05/2016 at 11:34

    Probably a good thing nobody is considering him. Will be a POD for us rare few. However, maybe a shit POD.

    Coxy · 09/05/2016 at 12:03

    I'll certainly consider him in 2 weeks, his price is going to drop lower than that

    Nathan · 09/05/2016 at 13:34

    Yeah next week or ine after
    He'll be my last fwd upgrade as im bringing in martin this week
    But i hope he is going to improve coz 76 wont cut it

    Danners · 09/05/2016 at 14:24

    Maybe when he gets some form, he should be considered

    Leeds17 · 09/05/2016 at 14:48

    Proven player albeit only at around 90-100ave, I'll certainly be looking at him at 350-360K

    ThatDamnRascal · 09/05/2016 at 15:30

    A POD can quickly turn to a POO

    Nathan · 09/05/2016 at 19:26

    Probably one of the reasons your ranked 70,000

      Noigerbour · 09/05/2016 at 21:39


    @wheels_1987 · 10/05/2016 at 09:38

    i will get him when he bottoms out

    but i know i will regret this

      Pete · 10/05/2016 at 22:41

      Keep away from Wingard he's shit house this year.

        @wheels_1987 · 11/05/2016 at 08:37

        i know

        but i wont be able to help myself


Tommo · 09/05/2016 at 11:29

Other than Tracca, who are some good rookies to bring in this week?

    Chill · 09/05/2016 at 11:57


    Waldo · 09/05/2016 at 12:57

    MacPherson. Not on the bubble. First game but enough for me to consider him or Keays. Not sure at this stage but it will be one of them for McGovern.

      Leeds17 · 09/05/2016 at 15:13

      Going early is always a worry but did have super NAB form & has been killing it in the NEAFL

Alphie · 09/05/2016 at 11:30

What premium to get with 607 k?

    Tommo · 09/05/2016 at 11:40

    Shaw, Jelwood, Pendles, Ward, Goldy

      Jeh · 09/05/2016 at 15:01


Jimsa84 · 09/05/2016 at 11:32

Community, I need some help preeze.

DEF: Shaw, Simpson, Adams, Gibson, McDonald-T, D. Byrne-Jones (Brown, Ruggles)
MID: Dangerfield, Parker, Ablett, Zaharakis, Pendlebury, Scully, Priddis, Smith (Hewett, Gresham, Keays)
RUC: Gawn, Mumford (Cox)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Hall, Wells, Greene, Kerridge, A. Kennedy, (Petracca, Grimley)

I have $339,900 in the kitty after just trading in Petracca for McCarthy and upgrading JKol to Simpson. Next round I want to upgrade Kerridge and McDT and maybe get one more premo in my mid field at some stage.
My question is, who else should I be aiming to get into my team? I'm thinking Dusty in the FWD line but I have no idea who I should lock in DEF?

    tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 12:14

    Rance is coming back from suspension this week. I'd look at him, docherty or Bartel for the DEF spot.

MZD · 09/05/2016 at 11:34

I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. Looking to either go Mills -> MacPherson (Premature) then going M.Crouch -> Ward. Otherwise Mills -> Franklin via DPP . My thoughts are M.Crouch gets a lot of the ball but always end up at the 80-90s range, but maybe he can get better as the season goes along. I don't want to use to trades left and thought why not get a premo Fwd that I'll think will be in top 8 and is afforadble at the minute.

    Danners · 09/05/2016 at 14:25

    Trades sound good, Crouch probably won't be a keeper by the end of the season

    LJB · 11/05/2016 at 09:52

    Don't trade TMac will turn it around, always hold your premos, Adams is out for 2-3 trade him, I'd say get boyd with all the Bulldogs injuries he's killed it 3 weeks in a row 120+ each week

Steeeve · 09/05/2016 at 11:34


Hold or trade?

    MZD · 09/05/2016 at 11:36


      Shake n bake · 09/05/2016 at 11:44

      I'm trading BE 94 not sure he'll avg more than Patracca here on. Good timing for this trade l think.

        Paul · 09/05/2016 at 12:01

        Yep. Petracca looks a solid on field replacement.

    Chill · 09/05/2016 at 11:58

    Patience is proving more lucrative this season but I think I will be trading Mills to Dusty.

    jockreynolds · 09/05/2016 at 11:58

    Time to chop him I reckon mate – one of the few ready for slaughter this week.

    Danners · 09/05/2016 at 14:26

    He is not the first priority to trade out, could make his breakeven if you have other problems with your team

Declan · 09/05/2016 at 11:36

Is it bad to have Greene, Shaw and Ward?

    Tommo · 09/05/2016 at 11:41

    I have all three of them too

      Paul · 09/05/2016 at 12:01

      Me too.

        yelad · 09/05/2016 at 12:12

        me 3

          Chill · 09/05/2016 at 13:31

          me 4

            Nathan · 09/05/2016 at 13:36

            Im on the band wagon too
            Me 5

              Craig · 10/05/2016 at 05:18

              Me 5

    @MitchArnold95 · 09/05/2016 at 11:50

    Don't think so mate. I'm currently in the same situation as I've traded in Ward this week. Shaw and Ward will be top 6 players easily and Greene is providing, although up and down, very good scores. Not even mad about how 65 this week, as he dished up 3 juicy 115+ scores in a row in the weeks prior.

    stavros · 09/05/2016 at 15:14


    Leeds17 · 09/05/2016 at 15:16

    Not really taking points of each other so don't see why it's bad, would like Ward in my team but you can keep Toby

    @wheels_1987 · 10/05/2016 at 09:40

    i have all 3 so this is a bad omen

    LJB · 11/05/2016 at 09:53

    Only really matters if out have other players from the same bye round as gws, that's when it will really hurt you

CJudd3Votes · 09/05/2016 at 11:40

Anyone else set to be bent over in the round 14 bye?

    Coxy · 09/05/2016 at 12:13

    Oh yes! I have 14 players that week! Trading out a lot of Essendon and Sydney rookies in the coming weeks so it should work out well come round 14

    tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 12:18

    Actually surprisingly no. I haven't worried about the byes at all this year, i normally just go for league wins, so i take the 3 losses on the chin and look for wins elsewhere. But upon further inspection i can field: 18, 17, 23. Pretty happy with that honestly.

    I N Pieman · 09/05/2016 at 12:30

    In the backline yes. That is a round to make 3 trades & get yourself out of trouble

    Tommo09 · 09/05/2016 at 12:47

    Yes I have 13 not playing that week at the moment

    john · 09/05/2016 at 22:46

    Yep that round is a killer. Current team would have 13 out that week but by then will expect to trade out a few Essendon rookies so likely to not be that bad by then.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/05/2016 at 11:43

Nice write up Carl. Sensational timing of the moo by the rookies.

Starting to load up and the moo this week will help no end.
This week looking at:
Mccarthy – dusty, weita – petrecca.
3 weeks after that load the gun and welcome:
Montagna in for benken
McVeigh in for longeran
Zorko in for papley

Hoping Simmo has an off night Rd 10-11 so can bring him in after his bye for Adams.

As they say though about best laid plans but as we know injuries can really throw a spanner in the works.

Hferg · 09/05/2016 at 11:46

Kade Kolodashnjijnnijijjni is burning me massive villain

    MZD · 09/05/2016 at 11:57

    Same, but gotta persist for now. We got him for a reason and Gold Coast are going terrible, once their form comes back he'll be racking em I hope.

    Youngster · 09/05/2016 at 12:02

    Agreed, he killed me this week but I'll persist. Too many other issues to worry about – traded in Rocky didn't I

      tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 12:19


James · 09/05/2016 at 11:47

What do people think about KK? Do you hold him and hope to save a trade?

    Steeeve · 09/05/2016 at 11:52

    Looking like this year's Newnes. Everyone jumped off him and he came home with 90s and above. Will KK manage the same? He's stunk it up so far but is still averaging almost 80. If you have bigger fish to fry, give KK a couple more chances.

    Chill · 09/05/2016 at 12:02

    Definitely hold. It pains me, but I'll be holding. Remember what Crouching One says.. paint the fence.

    tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 12:19

    i held newnes last year, and he finished decently, I'm going to hold all season and use him as a d6/d7 backup player.

Joshua Zanker · 09/05/2016 at 11:55

Does anyone else have Priddis and is serioiusly questioning his skill level as an AFL footballer? I'm holding onto him, but he is killing me.

    Beagz · 09/05/2016 at 12:40

    Priddis will come back. Carrying a slight injury which he looks to slowly be getting over. However I did watch the game on the weekend and at times he seemed confused.

    If you have him I wouldn't be trading him just yet as your surely have other priorities in your team. Give him until the Bye rounds and then review.


      Abel · 09/05/2016 at 16:57

      Injury incurred during fisting incident?

      JamiesNinjas13 · 10/05/2016 at 10:59

      Don't blame him being confused, that Geelong Duo of Selwoofield is absolute epic!

    I N Pieman · 09/05/2016 at 12:41

    He won a Brownlow then finished 2nd last year. He's just having a bad form period. Hold

    JB_Tank · 09/05/2016 at 21:27

    Was at the game and having seen this with a few Geelong legends I found myself thinking Father Time may have caught him. He was a split second behind on everything and gave the ball away repeatedly. A year ago I travelled west and marvelled at how good he was. When it gets you there's no coming back… I hope I'm wrong but it doesn't look good.

    TheAnointedOne · 09/05/2016 at 22:12

    I would say the medal in his war chest suggests otherwise.

Powerage · 09/05/2016 at 12:02

Is anyone else considering trading out Adams andor Kennedy this week ?

    Tommo · 09/05/2016 at 12:09

    Im considering adams. Kennedy has a BE of 28, dont get rid of him yet.

    Coxy · 09/05/2016 at 12:15

    I'm trading Adams out! But holding Kennedy because he has a low b/e! But looking to trade him out soon aswell!!

    tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 12:22

    Word is that Adams might've hurt his finger, I already traded BenKen out, but considering his score of 90 odd this week I wouldn't trade him.

    bAps · 09/05/2016 at 12:44

    Neither. Kennedy's BE is down to 27, so he's got more cash to make, and Adams will be traded in a few weeks.

    flex350 · 10/05/2016 at 04:20

    Adams has been one of my better defenders. He is staying same as Weitering for now.

    @wheels_1987 · 10/05/2016 at 09:43

    im holding adams

    possible 1 week, but no more than 2 weeks.

    in my opinion he is a keeper and we dont trade out keepers who have a 2 week injury

Andrew · 09/05/2016 at 12:03

Hold Hurn for now or get rid of the mutt?

    I N Pieman · 09/05/2016 at 12:42

    Perhaps wait till his bye then toss him

    bAps · 09/05/2016 at 12:43

    I'm in the same boat, its frustrating. I'll be holding him and using him as a D7 come season's end.

MZD · 09/05/2016 at 12:03

Matt Crouch guys ? Is it time ?

    I N Pieman · 09/05/2016 at 12:41

    Absolutely. Get rid of him

    Tommo09 · 09/05/2016 at 12:42

    I have him but am giving him one more week as have used 2 trades already.

    Crusty · 09/05/2016 at 15:04

    I have had him since the get-go. He's better than his scores so far but driving me nuts. I might go to Kade Simpson but I just don't want to burn trades atm.

      MZD · 09/05/2016 at 15:25

      Adelaide's next few games are tough. I don't wanna hold my hopes through him..

      mick · 10/05/2016 at 13:12

      the last 2 weeks 27 posys 75% eff just another supercoach WTF

Marc · 09/05/2016 at 12:04

Ward or Pendles?

    MZD · 09/05/2016 at 12:05

    Pendles before Ward

    tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 12:22

    Pendles first mate. Both good options though.

    Ratitat · 09/05/2016 at 13:46

    flip a coin

    Christian · 09/05/2016 at 14:13

    I'm still worried Pendles is carrying an injury. Might miss a game or two at some stage. I'm bringing Ward in this week.

      Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 15:33

      34 touches and 7 tackles last week………I don't see it holding him back at this stage.

      He had 28 round 6 against West Coast, and 35 vs the Bombers in round 5.

      He's under 600k with a 108 BE I'm locking him in.

    Danners · 09/05/2016 at 14:27

    If you have the cookie cutter midfield, Ward otherwise Pendles

    @wheels_1987 · 10/05/2016 at 10:46


Powerage · 09/05/2016 at 12:04

Are you going for McPherson due to shortage of cash? Would go Petracca or Keys first

Kerridge and Mills out for Dusty and Pendles?

    MZD · 09/05/2016 at 12:06

    Kerridge hasnt put a foot wrong (Carlton Supporter) . Trade Mills.

    MaccasMarvels · 09/05/2016 at 13:46

    If you've got De Goey (I have) I'd move him on before Kerridge. Dusty and Pendles look solid.

    The Mountain · 09/05/2016 at 14:01

    Although i wouldn't trade kerridge yet, if your looking to bring dusty in do it. Dusty won't be at this low in price for a while so if your going to bring him in its this round

Tommo · 09/05/2016 at 12:09

Hi Community

Tossing up between 2 trades. I have 24 trades left, so need to be cautious from now to the byes. I am definitely going Mills to Keays,
but got a tough decision for second trade.

Option 1: De Goey to Martin
Option 2: Adams/Tippa to Simpson/Bartel
Thoughts community?

    Andy · 09/05/2016 at 12:48

    I'd bring him Simpson over Bartel. He's been consistent this year.

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 15:34

    If you want Bartel get him now with a 45 BE and costs only 470k. Looks to have picked up his scoring.

tom · 09/05/2016 at 12:11

Is it time to trade De Goey? High breakeven

    The Weapon · 09/05/2016 at 14:07

    No hold de goey, he is a great selection and can easily see him scoring 10000+ this week and rising to 1.5 million

    Danners · 09/05/2016 at 14:28

    It's time to wield the axe

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 15:35

    BE of 89 is not really that high, not a huge priority.

    MaccasMarvels · 09/05/2016 at 21:30

    Looking at the break evens v averages it looks like De Goey and Mills should both go, but they've both only had one bad game. Smash out a 90 and they're both solid again. I'm torn. I think Petracca is one not to miss so someone has to go to make way and of my lot, it can only be one of these two.

tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 12:20

I'm pretty sure Wells played through an injury and finished the game, if he's not injured i wouldn't trade him out, he's looking like a keeper this year.

Cameron · 09/05/2016 at 12:33

Hannebery, Pendles or Ward?

    bAps · 09/05/2016 at 13:05

    Hanners > Ward > Pendles

    Ratitat · 09/05/2016 at 13:45

    Flip a coin, they have all been great so far and don't look like letting up. Hannebery and Ward are in more successful sides, however pedlebury is one of the most proven premos and you can trust he'll go well all year. They are all good imo

Liam · 09/05/2016 at 12:34

Mills to Keays

Rockliff to Priddis


    I N Pieman · 09/05/2016 at 12:54

    You'd want to see a turn of form from Priddis before pulling the trigger. You could be trading from one problem to another. Mills to Keays Get it done

      Ratitat · 09/05/2016 at 13:43

      Agree with that sentiment. Gotta wait for a turn in form. I'm hoping to grab him maybe after the byes if his form has turned

    Andrew · 09/05/2016 at 13:10

    Don't go to Pridda if possible. Grab someone like a Pendles/Selwood, assuming you don't have them.

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 15:38

    Priddis 152 BE……………….

murray · 09/05/2016 at 12:35

what is Mills BE?

    Phil · 09/05/2016 at 12:42


    I N Pieman · 09/05/2016 at 12:56

    BE this week for Mills meant "Butchered Enough" of it. Toss him

      murray · 09/05/2016 at 13:43


    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 15:39


Brandon · 09/05/2016 at 12:36

Stoked!!! Brisbane bombers are currently sitting in 58th spot! Gotta thank this community for the great advice! And the messiah jock Reynolds! Had a lot of luck on my side so far this season though I must admit!
This week I'm trading out Adams and mills, bringing in Zorko and petracca! A bit hesitant on trading Adams but he has the highest break even of all my rookies!
Is this a good trade?

    Brandon · 09/05/2016 at 12:46

    Also what's everyone doing with Ablett?

      Tommo09 · 09/05/2016 at 12:51

      Holding for me

      I N Pieman · 09/05/2016 at 12:57

      If you trade Gary he will score 180. Make sure he's dead before you trade him

      tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 13:02


    breakevens · 09/05/2016 at 13:03

    Great stuff Brandon

    Lachie · 09/05/2016 at 17:16

    I think adams and kerridge are the last trade out options imo

    @wheels_1987 · 10/05/2016 at 10:47

    hold adams

Matt · 09/05/2016 at 12:37

Who to prioritise out of Montana, dahlhaus and zorko?

    I N Pieman · 09/05/2016 at 13:00

    Montagna playing WC at Subi. Hold off. Dahl playing Melbourne. I'd grab him. Having said that Zorko should feast on Pies

      Lachie · 09/05/2016 at 18:06

      it's not just about next round.. its about being the best overall

    tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 13:02

    Zorko, Dahlhaus and then Montagna, Montagna's getting kinda old, and imo the other two are more consistent.

    Coxy · 09/05/2016 at 13:02

    Whatever suits your byes! Very hard to split those 3. I just traded in Zorko.

      pitch72 · 09/05/2016 at 13:38


    Danners · 09/05/2016 at 14:28

    Dahlhaus, Montagna, Zorko

    Matt · 10/05/2016 at 15:21


Tommo09 · 09/05/2016 at 12:41

I have been doing some maths and I will need about 1.9 million for upgrades.
That sounds like a big number I know but there is some good news.
I have $355k in the bank and will have about 1.3 million in downgrades.
This includes Keays and Petracca
That means I only need about 300k from another bubble boy.

How is everyone else's upgrade and downgrade money going???

azza · 09/05/2016 at 12:47

hey guys got about 570k to get a defender in,
already have shaw,laird and simpson.
Would preferrably like someone who doesn't have the round 12 bye. was considering rance but i feel he is overpriced?
is he worth the cash or is there someone else i can get instead?

    Dave Hughes · 09/05/2016 at 12:52

    I like Rance, even for that price! But if not, pittard?

    tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 12:56

    Rance is worth the cash, proven consistent scorer. Expect 90-100 scores every week.

    Derek · 09/05/2016 at 13:16

    McVeigh at $493k should be considered

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/05/2016 at 14:36

      Waiting a couple more weeks on McVeigh. Will b beautifully priced by then.

        Leeds17 · 09/05/2016 at 14:41

        probably only got 10K more to shed

          azza · 09/05/2016 at 14:58

          already have parker and hannerz so not keen for another syd player before byes haha

    @wheels_1987 · 10/05/2016 at 10:48

    Rance is a beast and as long as he dopesnt get suspended again will continue to score as a top 6 def

Dean · 09/05/2016 at 12:56

Menadue out for Petracca hoping to be my only trade this week although still have S.Gray

    Steeeve · 10/05/2016 at 09:24

    Menadue's break even is very achievable. I'd consider Gray to Petracca instead, at least Menadue is getting a game…

    @wheels_1987 · 10/05/2016 at 10:48


GoHawks · 09/05/2016 at 12:58

Working on the master plan for the remainder of the season, here's what I have so far in terms of the finished product-

Backs – Shaw, Rance, Laird, Simpson (D5-6 to fill)
Mids – Parker, Danger, Selwood, Abblett, Priddis, Ward, Libba (D8 to fill)
Rucks – Goldy, Gawn
Fwds – Hall, Wells, Martin, Barlow (F5-6 to fill)

So with 5 positions to fill, I'm looking at-
D5-6 – Houli (when bottomed out) & Boyd
M8 – R.Gray (when bottomed out)
F5-6 – Dahlhaus & one of Franklin, Zorko or Wingard

Appreciate your thoughts, and if there are better options as inclusions, that I may have missed.

    Derek · 09/05/2016 at 13:14

    Libba and Wells are not keepers. Wells maybe as M9/F7.

    McVeigh in Defence is a good option.

      Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 15:41

      I wouldn't count Libbe out.

    Thomas · 09/05/2016 at 13:41

    Looks good

    hubba · 09/05/2016 at 14:27

    yes goo in theory – but no PoDs though.. is all i'm sayin..

Tommo09 · 09/05/2016 at 13:16

Weitering to Simpson
Mills to Keays

Def: Shaw, Simpson, Adams, DBJ, Tippa, Brown (Laird, Byrne)
Mid: Danger, Hanners, Parker, Ablett, Libba, M.Crouch, Kennedy, Petracca (Gresham, Smith, Keays)
Ruck: Goldy, NicNat (Grimley
Fwd: Barlow, Martin, Hall, Franklin, a Wells, Kerridge (Papley, Menadue)

Any ideas community???
Will need 1.9 mil to get to full premo and have about 1.6 in downgrades, Petracca and Keays included in that.

Tommo09 · 09/05/2016 at 13:20

Gawn out? Who would do that???

    Gord29 · 09/05/2016 at 13:21

    sorry read it wrong 27 people have traded goldstein out for gawn

Adams and Mills—> Martin and Petracca leaves me low on 18 trades but nearly full premo

    tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 13:31

    How many more upgrades do you need to make after those trades? and whats your team name?

      Nicholas · 09/05/2016 at 17:46

      Team name is FlyingHawkAssassin

    Derek · 09/05/2016 at 14:05

    what your team look like now

    Leeds17 · 09/05/2016 at 14:56

    Jesus 18 trades.

      stavros · 09/05/2016 at 15:22

      if he is close to full doesn't matter Richie boy

        Northernsoul74 · 09/05/2016 at 17:12

        Some peoples definition of full premo is very different to mine. Can't see how he could have made enough cash to be truly full premo.

        CoachDamo · 09/05/2016 at 19:03

        He's not close – at least 7 more upgrades to make.

          Nicholas · 09/05/2016 at 19:12

          I would say 5 left

      tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 17:57

      I've got 19 left after this weeks 2 trades. I only need to upgrade 3 players that are +320k and 2 that are on the bubble this week. Also got 300k left in the bank. It doesn't matter how early you use your trades, the goal is to get to full premium as quickly as possible. I've got 5 players to upgrade, let's say that worst case scenario I have to do one downgrade to get the cash to upgrade. That leaves me with 9 trades for injuries. I highly doubt that more than 9 premium players with strong mature bodies will go down in the space of 10 weeks. If that does end up happening then that just bad luck, not poor planning.

        Brook · 09/05/2016 at 18:16

        to get to full premo with 18 trades u would need 13 keepers in your starting squad, 3 mid pricers that become keeper plus 12 A-grade cash cows from the start … it's possible and worth about $50k I would say!

        tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 18:21

        And even if you don't believe me I have proof on my youtube channel.

        *cough* shameless plug *cough*

        The Ranger · 09/05/2016 at 18:22

        It's not just injuries tho is it tux?
        Form, tooth length and suspensions are also factors that should be considered.
        We're seven rounds in and so far Laird, R. Murphy, Fyfe, Cotchin, Rocky, M.Murphy, Rance, Johanissen, Suckling, Delidio, Swan, Wingard, Gray (and no doubt more but you get my point!) have all missed games or are gone for the season.

          tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 18:26

          That's a good point you raise, however I'm still gonna back myself with this strategy, if it doesn't pay off then ill declare you my superior.

            The Ranger · 09/05/2016 at 20:02

            It might come off mate, like I said there's more than one way to play the game!
            Best of luck.

Rob · 09/05/2016 at 13:23

Is lachie neale a good get for the midfield( trading out Mills). Lowest score of the year for him has been 92

    Tommo · 09/05/2016 at 13:55

    I have been very much considering him, DE worries me though.

    I N Pieman · 09/05/2016 at 14:05

    Think you answered your own question

    tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 14:22

    It's between him and Priddis for my final upgrade spot in my midfield. Although I might end up trading Liberatore if i have extra trades.

    Danners · 09/05/2016 at 14:29

    I reckon he could be, looks to be a very good POD, although B.Ellis had a similar start and didn't finish off the season too well

    @wheels_1987 · 10/05/2016 at 10:49

    great POD. better players for that price but he is a very good player and only one showing ticker for the dockers

    Leeds17 · 11/05/2016 at 06:06

    Assuming you don't have any other PODs in there I don't mind it.

Alex · 09/05/2016 at 13:26

Double Down to give me 590k to go bang bang next week: McCarthy – Petracca and McGovern/Adams – Keays
Paint the fence: McCarthy – Petracca and McGovern/Adams – Selwood/Ward/Hannberry/

    Ratitat · 09/05/2016 at 13:39

    depends what you wanna get out of this weekend? If you are high in the rankings and wanting to stay there, or it's going to be a tight contest in a league you really want to win, then maybe paint the fence. If it's okay to be patient and wait till next week then doubling down seems a good idea

pitch72 · 09/05/2016 at 13:37

Mccarthy down to Petracca, then Mills to McVeigh, flick Seedsman into the guts and upgrade him at a later time. Thoughts?

    I N Pieman · 09/05/2016 at 14:05

    Like it. But get rid of Seedsman from the guts asap

    Derek · 09/05/2016 at 14:14

    I'm looking at exact trades.

    McCarthy won't play this week.

LtDraught · 09/05/2016 at 13:37

Jordan Lewis as a POD?

Only in 1.3% of teams, $431K, we know he can score, has averaged over 100 his past 2 seasons and his 94BE is achievable by his standards too. Would work well for me considering i have $100K to upgrade Mills with and bringing in keays would leave me with too many on-field rookies for my liking. I know hes had 3 very unsavoury scores and the Hawks arent playing to their lofty standards, but i think both him and Hawthorn will pick up

What are your thoughts Community?

    GoHawks · 09/05/2016 at 13:56

    I have seen all of the Hawks games, and Lewis has looked ordinary all season. He is working hard, but is not getting to the right positions on the field.

    Things will change, and Lewis will start playing better, but I would wait to see the first signs of him getting to the right places, he scored better on Friday against the Tigers, but didn't play well.

    Tiges · 09/05/2016 at 15:09

    The are two difference POD's – some that let you climb the ranks and some that let you fall away from the pack. Unfortunately, I believe Jordan Lewis will let you fall away from the pack. Won't be a top 10 midfielder and the other 98.7% teams that have him may have a Selwood/Ward/Coniglio like player that may end up scoring considerably better!
    Good luck though mate

    The GOAT · 09/05/2016 at 16:31

    Get him in mate. Feel like he turned the corner last game against the Tigers. Should get better when Mitchell comes back too w less pressure on him.. He has should only improve from here – something that Lewis can do which is an underrated part of his game is go 3rd man up in the ruck contest where he gets a few HOs to advantage.

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 18:51

    He'll be lucky to be a top 30 midfielder.

    Lachie · 09/05/2016 at 18:52

    he's having a stinker season. No point looking at his past in this case imo

    LtDraught · 09/05/2016 at 18:59

    Thanks for the feedback fellas! Will explore other avenues and see what my gut says come friday evening

    BE77, ok to hold for a few more weeks, if you have better options to trade-out.

    I N Pieman · 09/05/2016 at 14:04

    I got rid of him 2 weeks ago for Boyd. Happy with that move. Move him on

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/05/2016 at 14:44

    I'm keeping him for now as have other priorities. Not going really up or down so depends on your plans next couple of weeks. Looking to offload in a couple of weeks.

    Leeds17 · 09/05/2016 at 14:51

    He's a weird one, he's hard at it, spends plenty of time in the midfield but just doesn't find the ball, I held him this week when moves to Boyd, Simpson or McVeigh looked good on paper so kicking myself a bit, there's is just this inkling in the back of my head that he could come good.

      murray · 10/05/2016 at 10:35

      agree, but he is currently burning me. I have held for the last two to three weeks hoping he would come good

murray · 09/05/2016 at 13:53

J Selwod or Hanneberry or Ward? Which one of these three and why?

    Danners · 09/05/2016 at 14:30

    Ward, cheaper and a good POD that scores similar to the other two

      murray · 10/05/2016 at 10:34

      thanks danners, I am keen on him

Tommy · 09/05/2016 at 13:57

    I N Pieman · 09/05/2016 at 14:06

    You have to keep him unless he's injured

    Dan · 10/05/2016 at 09:00

    Keeping… Unfortunately.
    Can't sideways trade, he'll get some good scores.

Nice article Carl. Some of the worrying lads did give a MOO & don't need to worry about them for another couple of weeks. However some lads such as Mills Linc McCart & DeGoey have smashed into a wall. Heads will role

AverageAdsy · 09/05/2016 at 14:03

Mills to Petracca


De goey to Chopsticks Martin

This will leave me having to start petracca on the field but im guessing a few people will be doing the same this week

    tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 14:19

    A lot of people will be starting Petracca on field, kids a beast. Trades look good mate, go for it.

      stavros · 09/05/2016 at 17:19

      what about cloke and his friends are they cowards some respect he is a good player

    Wattsieesq · 09/05/2016 at 19:01

    I'm making exactly the same trades this week.

    great rap up tux volume very low but info good surprised your only 16k team seems better

      tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 15:49

      Thanks Stavros, I'll turn up the volume of the audio in my second one!

    Derek · 09/05/2016 at 21:40

    I did same C mistake. Thought Danger scored 119, so went Gaz.

      tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 22:02

      Good to know I'm not the only one that made that mistake haha

    Tommo · 10/05/2016 at 16:01

    Good work mate! Loved it! As Stavros said, bit louder next time, but other than that, nice!

      tuxCS · 10/05/2016 at 16:04

      Thanks so much! Good to know you enjoyed it 🙂

Mika · 09/05/2016 at 14:23

What should I do with houli? Really wanna get rid of the flog!

Considering trading him for Simpson

    Danners · 09/05/2016 at 14:31

    Hold, will go back to his normal role this week with Rance back

Dice · 09/05/2016 at 14:33

Hi guys, unsure of what to do so would love some help around.
Currently my ruckmen are Goldstein and Naitanui with Loersch as backup obviously not playing.
I have no Grimley or Cox in my forward line so i do not have a backup ruckman.
So this week Kerridge and Mills are out for Callan Ward and no idea for a rookie.
Should I trade in Cox? Grimley? Keays? Anyone else?
Here is my team

BACKS: Shaw, Adams, Gibson, B. Smith, AMT, Byrne-Jones……..M. Brown, M. Hartley
MIDS: Dangerfield, Parker, Ward, Ablett, Pendlebury, S. Mitchell, Liberatore, Petracca……..G. Hewett, J. Smith, J. Dunkley
RUCKS: Goldstein, Naitanui…….Loersch
FWDS: Dahlhaus, Hall, Martin, Wells, Barlow, B. Kennedy…….Menadue, ???????

    The Mountain · 09/05/2016 at 15:04

    I would hold kerridge mate. averaging 85 still with money to make. depending on the coin you have left id look at getting rid of menaspud for maybe getting mcPherson a week early via petracca.

      Dice · 09/05/2016 at 15:18

      Yeah may have to get macpherson. happy with kerridge, its just all the other rookies have got more to make than kerridge.
      Think kerridge might only make another $20 to $30G.
      What are your thoughts on not having a backup playing ruckman?
      I can't see goldstein and naitanui playing every game.
      Wont have enough money for ward if i get rid of menaretard

        Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 15:48

        You've got a guy called Dunkley that has done nothing for you, but it's menadue that's the retard?

          Dice · 09/05/2016 at 15:57

          Well Dunkleys not a retard yet coz he's playing twos and still on bubble.
          The way tigers are going Dunkley would be there captain.
          In saying that, there's plenty more weeks for Dunkley to prove to us that he's a retard.
          He's old mans left foot was a retard

            Noigerbour · 10/05/2016 at 05:07


              50_Shades · 10/05/2016 at 07:44

              I guess you need both trades for Ward right? I think it's too early for Kerridge to go. He's beaten that BE all but twice this year. I'd ditch Menadue even though his BE is still low. He covered for Cotchin last week and was better, but not great.

Jordan · 09/05/2016 at 14:35

So I'm in a bit of a pickle this week with trades, community.

I have one definite trade in Mills to Petracca. However I need to upgrade one more person to solidify my team this week.

Here are the options; a) Weitering to Boyd or Simpson.
b) Clayton Oliver to Luke Parker
c) Kerridge to Dahlias

The thing is, if Kerridge keeps an average of 85-90 average he's going to stay in my forward line for the season if he goes uninjured.

Clayton Oliver's scores are all over the place, but has a 50 BE and could continue rising in price, slowly but surely. And after round 7's performance, I believe the Dee's won't be moving him on too early.

And Weitering, he is injured and therefore not bleeding cash and allowing me to make more necessary trades elsewhere. However my back line is very rookie filled with, M. Brown, Tippa, Adams, DBJ, and Hartley playing on the field last round, they showed up but I still don't like playing that many rookies.

I believe Weitering to Boyd, or Simpson would be the best trade to ensure my defence one more premium until Laird gets back. Boyd's BE is 75, and will rise in price.

I am just not sure and would like some feed back.
Apologies for the long comment 🙂 thank you in advance.

    Jordan · 09/05/2016 at 14:42

    Sorry, Dahlhaus

    The Mountain · 09/05/2016 at 14:59

    Id go option A. By the sounds of it you need to strengthen your backline so id go simpson. He is a proven consistent performer and should be the pick of of him and boyd in the long run.

      Jordan · 09/05/2016 at 15:07

      That's a good option. Next week, I'll have 345k in the kitty, and i can always go Ben Ken to Dahlhaus, or Tippa to Boyd. The same thing with M.Adams if he continues to average 85+ I'm keeping him. I'll cross that bridge when it becomes time.

      Thank you kindly.

        Tiges · 09/05/2016 at 15:35

        Option A champ! Simpson a proven jet every year (hence why I started with him) Weitering not doing anything for ya, Kerridge could still come out and get 100+ easy enough.

rowdz · 09/05/2016 at 14:53

I have in my midfield Danger, Jelwood and Parker.
Would it be a concern if i bought in Hanners or should i look elsewhere?

    The Mountain · 09/05/2016 at 15:01

    What other premos do you have in the mid. Hanners is a brilliant option but it all comes down to your bye structure. Swans have the round 14 bye which i think is an issue for most. If it fits into your structure you definitely cant go wrong with hanners

Andrew · 09/05/2016 at 14:56

Mills to Selwood or Mills to D. Martin (via DPP)?
I want Selwood but geez he's expensive on the other hand Dusty is quite cheap. What do we reckon?

    Tiges · 09/05/2016 at 15:34

    Dusty has bottomed out, Selwood has maxed out. Pretty easy selection for mine.

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 15:53

    He's expensive because he's scoring well, currently rank 5 overall. BE 101.

    Martin BE 63 probably should get him first?

Brad P · 09/05/2016 at 15:05

So most of us will be keenly watching the likes of Priddis and Rockliff as fallen premiums but what are everyone's thoughts on Jordan Lewis?

Has had a couple of shockers in their losses but can find plenty of the footy and with the likes of Hodge currently out of the side, I feel he could be a value pick.

This would also save some cash to enable another premium upgrade in the middle.

Kerridge & Mills -> Lewis & other premo?

    SCaddict · 09/05/2016 at 18:17

    Yes fully agree with SS he's much more of a DT relevant player. Had him last year too and he needed to get at least 35 touches just to ton up as he gets bugger all CPs.

    And with the Hawks dynasty seemingly in decline now I wouldn't touch him with the proverbial barge pole. Will occasionally pump out an attractive score to reel the punters back in but I reckon the days of him being a top 10 mid candidate are probably now behind him, at least in Supercoach.

    Lachie · 09/05/2016 at 19:04

    Jordan Lewis is a massive spud. If he does make a random recovery, he'll probably get suspended when you're in the finals.

    Brad P · 10/05/2016 at 15:22

    Cheers guys. Yeah the more I think about it it's a very risky option. Better off just spending the extra cash to get all absolute premos in the midfield.

    I've now seen the light!

Tiges · 09/05/2016 at 15:15

G'day everyone,
Just after some advice re; structure of my team. I'm considering upgrading my defence and forward line first at the moment as I believe the midfield premiums are at an awkward price.. I'm eyeing off Selwood (MAX price) and Gray/Priddis are still falling for me to pick them up which should enable premo's in the mid up to M9 later in the season.
Trades this week:

Hoping next week to trade in Montagna (BE 117) means he won't go much or at all this week.

My main concerns are just the scoring capacity of M8 and F6 but I've got Davis and Wyatt as an emergency loophole so I can get the best score out of Keays/Hewett/Smith and Petracca/Papley some weeks.

Any advice?



// COX.



    tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 16:51

    Your teams looking really good actually, whats your team name?

      Tiges · 09/05/2016 at 17:56

      Dusty's haircut.

      Thanks mate! Aiming for the top 100, was 800th last week til it all went bad last week.
      Went sub 2,000 for the first time in years…. Jumped up 3,000 ranks this week to about 1,600th overall I think.

Phat Man · 09/05/2016 at 15:24

Saint Nick in anyones radar community? Like a fine wine he seems to be getting better with age

Averaging 135 from last 3 and 118 over last 5. Take the 33 out from the first round and hes averaging 115. playing up the ground has helped him greatly. kicking at least 2 goals a game and out of the 5 of 7 games hes hit the ton hes had 20+ possies and 10+ plucks.

Dont think he can be ignored for much longer

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 15:56

    Highly possible to miss games only played 17 last year.

    tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 16:50

    He's on the radar for me, but at his price, there are better options available.

    Danners · 09/05/2016 at 19:09

    I see you chasing the bus. If you have last years Jock Reynolds Magazine read an article called the "Buffalo Jump". To sum it up key forwards have a good start and end and a terrible mid season

    @wheels_1987 · 10/05/2016 at 10:53

    currently resurrected, however by the time the bye rounds approach he will sink back into his coffin for a sleep

Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 15:27

Wells 68 BE. If he's fine to play that is a terrible trade.

Libbe could easily go big soon, he's playing very well considering coming back from a major injury.

    @wheels_1987 · 10/05/2016 at 09:42

    Shark move trading out wells

    you were wrong about Zorko, so i wouldnt call the wells move terrible just yet

Eric_the_Red · 09/05/2016 at 15:28

Off topic, but got a Coach Kings question. Do you play in-venue and use a smartphone to play? How's it work? Popping my cherry this weekend.

    Kev · 09/05/2016 at 16:34

    Jump on coachkings.com.au mate. You'll find all the details there

      Eric_the_Red · 09/05/2016 at 18:33

      Cheers Kev!

min0008 · 09/05/2016 at 15:36

McCarthy to Petracca
Mills to Ward, Hannebery or Selwood?

I will probably go Selwood.

    GoHawks · 09/05/2016 at 15:46

    Selwood for mine.

Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 15:51

Never getting Jordan Lewis again, was ok a couple of years ago but when he gets 30 touches and only scores 80 it'll annoy you.

There's just too many better options and those three low scores this year are a disgrace. I'd lock Marc Murphy in before Lewis.

james · 09/05/2016 at 15:54

Hello community scored about par this week 2140

Def: Shaw, Houli, Adams, AMT, DBJ, Byrne (Laird, Ruggles)
Mid: Dangerfield, Hannebery, Ward, Ablett, Shiel, Zieball, Priddis, Parish (Hewett, Davis, Gresham)
Ruc: Gawn, Nic Nat (Lorensch)
Fwd: Hall, Martin, Wells, Kerridge, Benken, De goey (Menadue, JSmith – non playing rookie)

iv'e got 30k in the bank and not sure what to do, i feel like i need to get petracca but not sure who to trade out for him,

do i need to get rid of De goey, Adams or parish

thoughts on potential trades

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 16:23

    Parish 78 BE or De Goey 89 BE who are you more confident will breakeven?

    There's your answer. Don't trade Adams with a 68 BE.

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 17:34

    Wasn't aware of Adams having a finger injury when I made above comment, could trade him.

bUCKET__ · 09/05/2016 at 16:03

Not much talk about Zerrett. Seems to be right for the picking again after his one dud score. Cheaper than Dusty and has been more consistently this year. That one bad game must be scaring people off?

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 16:21

    I've been keeping an eye on him might trade him in later. Like that he scored 120+ vs Geelong and Melbourne.

blake · 09/05/2016 at 16:05

not sure who would read this but good stuff everyone in the jock reynolds forum league ranked 189 overall keep pushing for a high rank

    tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 16:49

    Yeah I'm in it myself. At a solid 1-5 win loss ratio haha.

    Davo · 09/05/2016 at 20:03

    Good stuff Blake, also in this league, enjoying the challenge of a tough league

      Arthur Mungs · 10/05/2016 at 18:22

      Mungs sitting in 12th. Feel like I'm letting the team down a bit but hoping to finish strongly and help us into the top 100. Strong league and fantastic challenge each and every round.

adam · 09/05/2016 at 16:11

this weeks trades, Mccarthy to petracca and rosa to boyd simmo or ?

Josh · 09/05/2016 at 16:19

After two decent scores in a row people came out of the woodwork commending themselves on their decisions to hold bagging us 'trade wasters' out. So just a special thanks to Barlow and tommy Rockliff (and Toby Greene for that matter) for the reminder on why I hit that button

    Derek · 09/05/2016 at 17:40

    every year the same. people so quickly forget what it is like to run low on trades at the end of the year. Keep pushing that button.

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 18:48

    Toby Greene has increased 56k over his starting price. Got a 112, 129 and 115 that you missed out on, plus they saved a trade.

    Barlow is 15k over his starting price, and got a 132 and 134 you probably missed out on, and again they saved a trade.

    Rockliff has failed, but his scoring potential is huge, so not surprised people held onto him.

    I don't get your point at all as two of the three have not been failures to hold onto at all.

    Josh · 09/05/2016 at 20:32

    Don't get me wrong I understand the merit of holding the trade, all I am saying is there was a benefit in making the trade specially if Barlow doesn't Finish top six and Rockliff only plays 15 games. Mainly pointing out its Easy make a post about how stupid a trade was After they hit there first ton, the criticism should be made once proven and not discounting what coaches might have gained like a fruitful rookie or premium that remains in the team to the end for
    How is that a waste of a trade..

    Josh · 09/05/2016 at 20:42

    And I appreciate Greene doesn't fall into the same category more of an after thought. Never been In my team, however most think long and hard on their trades and don't need to come on here and read thngs suggesting going with what they thought was right was silly as we don't all own crystal balls

RjH · 09/05/2016 at 16:26

Thoughts on zach Merrett now that he's back to his starting price?

    breakevens · 09/05/2016 at 17:32

    Depends who you have in your forward line, Dustin is a much better pick at the moment but Zerrett still a decent pick

Tommo09 · 09/05/2016 at 16:32

These are my trades this week
Weitering to Simpson
Mills to Keays

Def: Shaw, Simpson, Adams, DBJ, Tippa, Brown (Laird, Byrne)
Mid: Danger, Hanners, Parker, Ablett, Libba, M.Crouch, Kennedy, Petracca (Gresham, Smith, Keays)
Ruck: Goldy, NicNat (Grimley
Fwd: Barlow, Martin, Hall, Franklin, a Wells, Kerridge (Papley, Menadue)

    tuxCS · 09/05/2016 at 16:47

    Whats the name of your team Tommo?

      Tommo09 · 09/05/2016 at 17:27

      Tommo's Top Team

stavros · 09/05/2016 at 16:44

if Nicholas is 2 or 3 off full premium what does it matter if he has used 12 trades to date.He will be there with12 to 14 left entering the byes.Those that criticise him are trade hoarding fools.iif you have 25 now and are7 or 8 off then you will have 9 left after the byes Iknow who I think is wise

    Derek · 09/05/2016 at 17:59

    Have noticed there have been a few players get injured in the last few weeks. This actually happens all season, in fact it gets worse.

      stavros · 09/05/2016 at 18:17

      Hi Derek your opinion on being close to full premium such as Nicholas with 18 left opposed to fred bear with 28 trades needing8 premiums surely Nicholas is better placed.would you not select martin this week at his lowest or save the trade no brainer in my book

        Derek · 09/05/2016 at 19:24

        Martin this week is a great pick. He is a "proper" keeper

        Leeds17 · 09/05/2016 at 20:37

        i dont think it's possible to be 2-3 of full real premium even having used 12trades

    Derek · 09/05/2016 at 18:31

    You clearly don't have much idea about building wealth and having proper premiums. There is no way you can have a final team before the byes, you simply can't have enough cash generated to do this.

    For Nic or anyone to claim they are 3 or 4 away from full premium at round 7 will mean they have a very loose definition of what a premium keeper is.

    To call people who actually know how to play "fools" is both disrespectful and shows how little you understand SC

      stavros · 09/05/2016 at 18:54

      yourare right on that .I am a newbie and I understand your point what is a premium libba wells hall greene jj buddy are any of them premiums my uninformed opinion is all of them therefore maybe one can get to full during byes is that fare Derek and not good using fools apologies

        Derek · 09/05/2016 at 19:10

        of the players you mention, maybe Buddy might make my F7 but only because the Swans have a good last 6 games

Jess_coach · 09/05/2016 at 16:46

Any news of some defensive rookies on the horizon? Hoping like hell either Lee or Tucker is named, as I have oodles of cash to spend in defense, but still no DPP trading options. Almost at the stage of downgrading Weitering to a def rookie, regardless of if they are playing this week. Other trade will be Mills to Petracca. Paint the fence next week because not enough $ to upgrade this week. Ranked in top 600. Thoughts?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/05/2016 at 17:00

    With freo struggling and Adams out at the dogs maybe one or both Collins will get a guernsey this week? Rainbow has been impressing at the blues and might also get a gig soon.

    Will have to wait as usual for the team sheets but they r my crew who I think may get a gig.

      Northernsoul74 · 09/05/2016 at 17:10

      Maybe Zaine Cordy at the Dogs.

    Mac · 09/05/2016 at 17:02

    Maybe bring in a loophole option for strategy in the later rounds?

      bUCKET__ · 09/05/2016 at 21:20

      Tom Cole is looking like a good donut. 117k MID/DEF, rebounding defender named emergency for WCE most weeks so far and killin' it in the WAFL. He'll be one of my downgrades in the coming weeks if there's no viable cows down back!

    JamiesNinjas13 · 10/05/2016 at 11:05

    Me too Jess! Very frustrating because all my DPP players like Tippa, Brown and Adams are all in the Defence line so I can't do a swing. And I don't want to be getting any premier defenders just yet because I already have 4 of them. Adams to Martin would have been the perfect trade this week too!

Bamb · 09/05/2016 at 16:49

Sexton going down to Petracca after being injured. Do I upgrade Yeo to a premo mid or def? Or do I give him another chance and turf Marcus Adams for an upgrade or double downgrade?

    Tiges · 09/05/2016 at 18:06

    All you need for your defence premiums is one word. Consistency.
    Unfortunately, Yeo doesn't provide that. Ranging from scores between 39-129 and an average of sub-80. I'd look to trade him off, depends if you rank this as one of the major issues in your team.
    A breakeven of 150 this week, I'd say trading him out (with the Petracca downgrade as well).
    I'd consider picks like Simpson/Boyd this week. Simpson has been one of my best picks start of the season. Consistent, proven defender for the last 3-5 years yet always under-rated.
    Hope this helps, good luck for the rest of the season.

The Guy · 09/05/2016 at 17:14

I've got a serious problem with Tom McDonald…
Is it worth the trade or should i stand by him and pray?

    marcus · 09/05/2016 at 17:24

    trade. Melbourne are a different team to last year and he isn't getting as much of the ball as he used to

    Tiges · 09/05/2016 at 18:04

    Playing in the past with Tom McDonald. Different role this year. I would trade and look towards Boyd/Simpson upgrade this week.
    Good luck for the rest of the season.

    The Guy · 09/05/2016 at 18:25

    Lovin it fellas thanks

      Phil · 09/05/2016 at 18:42

      Trade him. I have him too and he gets the cull this week! Waited to long he's bleeding cash!

    @wheels_1987 · 10/05/2016 at 10:54

    must hold now
    leaked to much $

marcus · 09/05/2016 at 17:14

community I need your help deciding these trades. for every trade I will be doing mills to petracca.
1) Menadue to cripps or zaharakis
2) Menadue to Docherty or pittard
3) hewett to rance (cant afford Menadue to rance)
4) kennedy to pendles or zorko via dpp (probably shouldn't trade kennedy)
5) Menadue to montagna or merrett
let me know which number you think is the best and which player out of them all thanks

    marcus · 09/05/2016 at 17:19

    update: just read that adams is out and bringing in the likes of rance or Docherty will mean that I wont have to play Hartley on field and mitch brown

      Tiges · 09/05/2016 at 18:03

      What Kennedy are you referring to Marcus? If it is Ben Kennedy go for it.

      I'd look at holding Menadue until R13 and downgrade him then – hope you are aware of triple downgrading in R13.
      Don't mind jumping the gun a tad on Adams, reckon he's quieten down and almost done. Better options than Rance and Docherty – look towards, Boyd, Simpson. Both solid picks.
      Good luck for the rest of the season.

      Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 18:42

      Don't trade kennedy with a 27 BE, we've all held him this long through his 50 scoring now he's making some cash.

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 19:04

    Just do Mills to Petracca and keep the warchest?

      marcus · 09/05/2016 at 19:28

      I would get boyd but he will most likely get rested.I need to look at my bye structure later in the week and either hold like you said Southern or trade adams

James · 09/05/2016 at 17:17

More important to get Mills or McCarthy out this week?

Thinking Rocky -> Petracca and McCarthy -> Dusty

    Kev · 09/05/2016 at 17:20

    If McC misses weeks through injury I'd move him on. Can't get a good run at it

      Eric_the_Red · 09/05/2016 at 18:34

      If McCarthy misses a week it's not as important to flick him this week. Get rid of Mills.

Northernsoul74 · 09/05/2016 at 17:25

Confirmed Adams out this weekend with a fractured finger.

    Tommo09 · 09/05/2016 at 17:50

    That means I have to play Byrne for the second week in a row

      Phil · 09/05/2016 at 19:42

      and that's a bad thing?

    Powerage · 09/05/2016 at 18:16

    Any idea how long?

      Phil · 09/05/2016 at 19:43

      saying not long maybe 1 week 2 most?

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 18:40

    It's a minor fracture and he'll be having surgery today from what I've read. He could only miss one if lucky, maybe two weeks. I'm keeping him.

    Danners · 09/05/2016 at 19:12

    Thanks mate, a bit unfortunate, but should hold

      john · 09/05/2016 at 23:01

      Agree hold. Browns form been good lately so swinging him down back and putting Adams on the bench up forward on the bench.

    Steeeve · 10/05/2016 at 09:45

    Hope Ruggles is picked! Deserves to be but we will see. If not, my trade plans are changing…

James · 09/05/2016 at 17:33

Ranked 147

Do I paint the fence with McCarthy to Selwood and McGovern/Adams to Petracca or Double Down and pull the trigger next week.

Leaning towards A but I don't see a great rookie to downgrade to next week.

Cheers community

    Gord29 · 09/05/2016 at 17:50

    if you are keen on macpherson you would be better doing the double downgrade this week in my opinion. I'm not ranked at 147 like yourself though so go with your gut

    john · 09/05/2016 at 23:02

    I am just under 300 in rank and thinking along similar lines. one up one down or another double down which I did last week. I am leaning towards Spannerdue out for petracca and Mills up to Hanneberry who I dont have yet.

      50_Shades · 09/05/2016 at 23:11

      I did a double downgrade this week and wound up losing my main league by 10 points. I'd suggest just watching for how it might impact you're scoring along with other things like cash generation, BE etc. the win or loss may not matter, but in my case, 1 up would've given me the win as well (esp because smith and cox) were poor.

breakevens · 09/05/2016 at 17:34

How long do you think until Kerridge needs to be culled

    Mac · 09/05/2016 at 17:39

    Next week, trade him to Priddis who will drop even more this week.

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 17:43

    I'll be trying to hold him until the byes, has plenty of scoring potential.

      Phil · 09/05/2016 at 17:49

      Agree Southern. Kerridge is the least of my worries avg 85 scored an 82 made 24.7 K this week,, not sure why anyone would be thinking of trading him yet with a BE of 76. I look to trade him during bye weeks unless he really spuds up in the next 5 weeks?

        Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 18:38

        He's scored over his BE 5 out of 7 rounds this year and has 100% job security, he could even be a keeper for people who haven't made enough profit this year.

Michael · 09/05/2016 at 17:41

commmunity, jacobs has been horrific this year compared to what he is capable of getting, is trading jacobs to martin a good trade?

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 19:02

    Both are having an average year, it's an awful trade honestly. Need Gawn, Nic Nat or Goldy.

    Martin got 119 last round against a team with no ruckman, means nothing.

    Bomber56 · 09/05/2016 at 20:08

    If you can afford it go to Gawn

    Boltons blues · 09/05/2016 at 21:59

    if you wait a couple of weeks you can get goldy for a lot cheaper

Michael · 09/05/2016 at 17:42

which player do i get for downgrading mcgovern, i already have petracca, any other fwd rookies out there?

Tommo09 · 09/05/2016 at 17:47

Thoughts on these 3 rookie priced players for when they play
Gore, Mathieson, Trengove
Gore – Doesn't look like he will get a good run at it but did play nab challenge although he had limited game time
Mathieson – Looks AFL ready but when will he play??
Trengove – Played before and averaged 70s before, but what about that foot???

    Tiges · 09/05/2016 at 18:01

    Not sure if Trengove and Gore will get a look in the near future.
    Mathieson probably a few floggings or a key injury away from finding a spot in the Lions lineup.

      Wighty36 · 09/05/2016 at 18:36

      Reckon that key injury happened yesterday he will play this week

Cam · 09/05/2016 at 17:48

Not sure who to trade or not trade this week, Thoughts community
Def: shaw, rance, Houli, yeo, Adams, DBJ ( AMT, broad)
Mid: Selwood, Shiel, Parker, Ablett, libba, parish, mills, smith ( Gray, macaffer, schoenfeld)
Ruc: Martin, Gawn ( cox)
Fwd: Martin, Montagna, hall, ben Kennedy, wells, kerridge ( McCarthy, petracca)

    Cam · 09/05/2016 at 17:50

    15 k ant 20 trades

    Tiges · 09/05/2016 at 17:57

    I'd be trading out Mills (BE of 100 approx) and McCarthy (BE of around 80 approx)

    Time to go this week! Downgrade Mills to Keays and upgrade McCarthy to your choice of premo! Good luck.

      Cam · 09/05/2016 at 18:19

      What about parish

        Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 18:31

        He could hit his 78 BE, won't bleed too much even if he doesn't.

Wayno76 · 09/05/2016 at 17:58

Does any one know why Sam Mitchell was rested, does he have an injury ?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/05/2016 at 18:29

    Corkie apparently. Should b back this week

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 18:29

    Corked calf, probably back next week I'd assume.

Tiges · 09/05/2016 at 18:00


My team is coming along nicely but I am currently concerned over the lack of premo's available for the R13 "TRIPLE DOWNGRADE" bye round.

Only rookies I currently have are Kerridge, Smith and Davis/Cox (hardly count as cash cows).. However, I need to upgrade these boys to midfield premo's so I could potentially be left with no cash cows to cull in R13?! Does anyone else have any concerns over this?

    stavros · 09/05/2016 at 18:27

    is it a don e deal to trade 3 why not 2 1 or even nada if you don't have to pending on 14 and 15.Mine is looking good for minimum of trades if any due to planning weeks ago . am I missing something

@stewy_chewy · 09/05/2016 at 18:03


-Ward Vs Coniglio (GWS)
-Max Gawn the Monster notches up monster 174. And may be overtaking Goldy for top ruck men spot
-Shaw Vs Simpson (CARLTON/GWS)

CALLAN WARD (GWS) $582,300 (BE 98)
-Average of 117.6
-Hasn’t dropped below 90
-7th in AFL for total goal assists
-8th in AFL for total amount of points

STEPHEN CONIGLIO (GWS) $563,400 (BE 108)
-Average of 109
-Hasn’t gone below 95 since round 2
-Churned out scores of 78,96,126,127,117,110


-GAWN (MELB) $646,900 (BE 115)
-Average 126.7
-Low score of 85
-3 scores over 150
-3 scores under 100

-GOLDSTEIN (NORTH) ($595,000) (BE 202)
-Average 113
-Low score of 49
-5 tons and a 95
-2 scores under 100

-Result. Many of us would definitely say that Gawn is the most capable ruck men and at a lower price the Goldy, in my opinion he is definitely the way to go.


-SIMPSON (CARLTON) $534,200 (BE 96)
-Average of 103.7
-Low score of 84
-5 scores over 100
-Scores of 104,86,84,101,129,100,122

-SHAW (GWS) $581,000 (BE 101)
-Average of 105.3
-Low score of 70
-4 Scores over 100
-Scores of 87,74,129,70,132,143,102

-Result. I personally think the Heath is still the top defender for supercoach. Simpsons scores are up there though and at a cheaper price should be considered as a trade in the backline.

Any comparisons you want next post comment below

-C, Petracca -75
-T, Lee -59
-B, Keays -53
-J, Smith -43
-D, Howard -33

-M, TIpungwuti 51
-C, Oliver 52
-M, Dea 54
-B, Crouch 55
-C, Mills 93


-Goldstein (BE 202)
-Already dropped 100k to 595K and is set to drop tons again in the likely event that he doesn’t reach that break even. Next round might be the cheapest you will get him for a long time.

-Priddis (BE 152)
-Dropped 100k since the start of the season. Hasn’t hit the ton since round 3 and is set to drop again this round if he doesn’t reach this BE. A fallen premo definitely on the cards if you don’t have him yet

-S, Mitchell (BE 184)
-Started the season off well but now is stumbling a bit and hasn’t hit the ton since round 4. Could drop a lot If he misses his BE by tons so keep a lookout on his score.

-Hannebery (BE 123)
-In 14% of teams and hasn’t dropped below 100 this season yet. Averaging 119.4 it is surprising that more people don’t have him. Watch his price

-D, Martin (BE 64)
-Is the ideal forward. Back inform after a slump of 70-80 scores (Which isn’t that bad). At only $514K this may be the cheapest you see him for a while.

-Waite (BE 166)
-First score under 100 this round for Waite. Priced at 537K after going down 37K. He might get even cheaper if he doesn’t achieve that BE.

-Wingard (BE 124)
-Wingard has gone down 130k since the start of the season. Priced at just under 400k and set to fall again if he doesn’t achieve the BE, This is an unorthodox and risky Fallen premo forward option.

-Selwood (BE 101)
-Like Hannebery, Selwood is in form and is rocking right now. 5 straight weeks over 100 and he is looking like he’s going to keep going. Premo upgrade option.

-No suspensions this week. Alex Rance will be back this week though.

-Tom Rockliff (Hamstring) 2-3 Weeks*
-Tim Broomhead -Test (Likely to play)
-Ben Reid -Test (Likely to play)
-Jonathan Simpkin (Hamstring) 3-6 Weeks*
-Lincoln Mcarthy (Ankle) -1 Week
-Touk Miller (Ankle) -1 Week
-Daniel Wells (Cork) – Test
-Daniel Robertson (Shoulder) -1 Week
-Marcus Adams (Finger) -1 Week

This is the time of the season where we look to find good fallen premo’s and to start converting our teams closer and closer to the dream “Full Premo” team. Amongst all of this don’t squander trades because you can or at all for that matter. Observe and hold all trades if you have to. As Jock Reynolds would say “Don’t chase the points”. Thank you community.

    Tom · 09/05/2016 at 20:06

    Collingwood didn't win champ

      Luke · 09/05/2016 at 20:49

      They did if it gets their president or coach sacked

    CJudd3Votes · 09/05/2016 at 20:11

    Collingwood win? Pretty sure the mighty Blues got up

Brad · 09/05/2016 at 18:07

Here is my team:
DEF: Simpson, Bartel, Laird, Kolodjasnij, Adams, Byrne-Jones (Hartley, Dea)

MID: Dangerfield, Parker, Ablett, S. Mitchell, Liberatore, P.Cripps, C.Mills, C.Oliver (B.Keays, G.Hewett, J.Smith)

RUC: Gawn, Naitinui (Grimley)

FWD: Zorko, D.Martin, Hall, Wells, Keridge, B.Kennedy (M.Brown, Tipa)

I am definetly going to get in Petracca and also trade out Mills.
I was originally thinking of trade B.Kennedy for Petracca and Mills for Zaharakis (although B.Kennedy's breakeven is 28) so not sure.


    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 18:27

    I'd keep Ben Kennedy another score of 80+ and he's going to increase significantly, maybe just Mills to petracca.

    hedski · 09/05/2016 at 19:05


      Brad · 09/05/2016 at 21:31

      Adams to Shaw do you reckon?

        hedski · 09/05/2016 at 21:45

        I just think you need Shaw up to you when and how.
        Mills to petracca then ??? To Shaw.
        Depends on your $$ and priorities

Cam · 09/05/2016 at 18:26

I have 15k and 20 trades
Who to trade between parish, mills, mccarthy

    Eric_the_Red · 09/05/2016 at 18:43


Wighty36 · 09/05/2016 at 18:31

Anyone worried about goldy being rested this week or is it just me haha!

    Derek · 09/05/2016 at 18:36

    I was just about to post the same comment. Two easy games before North play Swans, cats, Hawks and crows.

    The chance of a rest in the next two week……. High.

      Wighty36 · 09/05/2016 at 18:40

      Im playing for overall if they rest him what do u think? Trade down and upgrade some where else?

        Phil · 09/05/2016 at 19:55

        Downgrade Goly is going to sit this week. Daw take ruck duties for next few weeks

    Danners · 09/05/2016 at 19:14

    It's just you

      Derek · 09/05/2016 at 19:21

      why was there talk last week about him resting? Where was that coming from

        Phil · 09/05/2016 at 19:53

        Goldy to be rested this week

    sharmanism · 10/05/2016 at 13:01

    As a North supporter I get to most games and think he's looking pretty battle weary at this stage and I wouldn't be at all suprised to see him take a week off against Essendon something I don't mind (even though I don't have cover for him in my spudded up SC team).

FootyAddict · 09/05/2016 at 18:37

Thoughts on my trade this week
Out Mills In Keays
Out McCarthy In Franklin

Powerage · 09/05/2016 at 18:44

I'm planning to hold Adams,weatering and let kerridge right till the end,the way this year is going who's to say they won't score as well as "premos" . Is that silly? Comments welcome !

    Phil · 09/05/2016 at 19:19

    No, I'm holding both to, good loopholes and not trading Weitering til Laird comes back. Doesn't sound like Adams will be out long maybe week or 2? I'm saving Weitering to trade straight into Laird when he's a go. Then trade Adams later if he's out longer or stuffs it up? I think Adams has cash to be made? IMO

Wayno76 · 09/05/2016 at 18:54

Trades this week
Weitering – Simmo
Mills – Petracca

Zeeva · 09/05/2016 at 19:07

Community…Mills to Pendles and Ben Kennedy to Martin..thoughts?

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 19:11

    Not a fan of trading Kennedy. Why keep him through a bunch of 50-60 scores and 50 odd BE's, to then trade him when he scores 89 and now has a 27 BE?

      Zeeva · 09/05/2016 at 19:45

      I just cant see Kennedy making much cash anymore..Martin BE of 63 so he will increase more himself

    Phil · 09/05/2016 at 19:20

    Don't think you could go wrong with that?

Dean · 09/05/2016 at 19:18


Those who traded Papley out just prior to his round 5 game just as I did at $224,600 to bring in DBJ at $123,900 generated $100,700 from that trade.
Since the trade Papley has generated a extra $56,700 thus far with scores of 104,109,46,24,78,64,85 meaning those who traded him out for DBJ have missed out on Papley's 78, 64, & 85 but received higher points from DBJ during rounds 5 to 7 – Also Papley has a average of 72.9 after round 7

DBJ has already made $198,300 for those who brought him in just 5 rounds.
So for those who traded out Papley for DBJ have generated a TOTAL of $299,000 thus far, when you include the $100,700 made from Papley's inflated price.
Also DBJ has averaged 86 thus far with his scores of 61,97,103,70,100 which is a extra 13 point average when comparing him to Papley.

Papley has a maximum projected price of $310,400 by round 9, that is a cash generation of $200,000 – However that is Papley's maximum projected price. (However I'm posative his maximum will be higher then $310,000)

DBJ has a projected price of $412k by round 12, that is a cash generation of $288k – However DBJ his a maximum projected price to reach $437k by round 21 (Not that anyone will keep him this long unless he continues to average 86+)

Those who traded in DBJ are undoubtedly 100% better off with DBJ as opposed to keeping Papley as these players will generate almost double those who stuck with just Papley once you factor in the $100,700 made by trading Papley to DBJ.
Also because DBJ is a defender and if he can continue to hold his average of 86+ then he could quite possibly be a keeper as a D6 due to the extreme volatility with inconsistent defenders. Where as Papley being a forward his current Average of 73 is not good enough as a F6

The losers or those worst off if you will, are those who chose to hold Papley without bringing in DBJ

However the REAL winners are those who traded in DBJ for someone other then Papley and continue to hold both DBJ & Papley as they are TWO very impressive young rookies.

So congratulations to those who kept Papley and were smart enough to traded in DBJ for another player other then Papley.

    marcus · 09/05/2016 at 19:22

    i got both thank god

      Dean · 09/05/2016 at 19:33

      Well done m8

      Nicholas · 09/05/2016 at 20:06

      Same here

    Tommo09 · 09/05/2016 at 19:36

    I got DBJ and kept Papley

    Derek · 09/05/2016 at 20:22

    Excellent analysis.

    I was hoping someone could do the same for me.

    I decided to spend the extra cash at the start of the year and go Wingard instead of Adams. Havnt really calculated if that was good move 😉

      Derek · 09/05/2016 at 20:24

      Not Adams,… I meant Hall

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/05/2016 at 21:53

    Great analysis. Luckily i kept papley as well and traded gresham via dpp to dbj.
    The way dbj is going he is looking like a final upgrade in defence.
    Happy days.
    Next trick is to get a full team on the park . I think that task is proving the most difficult this year.

Phil · 09/05/2016 at 19:26

I kept Paps and I have DBJ….I kept BenKen as well as most jumped off him last week as well.

    Derek · 09/05/2016 at 19:32

    you still got 30 trades Phil?

      Tophawk · 09/05/2016 at 20:40

      Hi Derek,

      Who knows how may trades Phil has….All I know is that he loves FIGJAM on toast.

        gator59 · 09/05/2016 at 21:08

        I kept Paps,BenKen and DBJ

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/05/2016 at 21:55

          So did i for the moment but they will be leaving my team in the next couple of weeks.

            gator59 · 09/05/2016 at 22:17

            agree with you trigger

    Dean · 09/05/2016 at 19:39

    Phil your sitting sweet brother as Kennedy has a B/E of just 27 so he could quite easily have a negative or very low break even if he scores around his Average of 80

    I also kept Kennedy, he is doing good enough to hold. My trades were Weitering to Smith & McCarthy to Cox although Cox had a Mycoxaphlopin game unfortunately.

Sloany13 · 09/05/2016 at 19:27

Mills, Adams or Weitering out and who to?

    Sloany13 · 09/05/2016 at 19:31

    already have petracca

      Dean · 09/05/2016 at 19:54

      Mills to Keays who has a break even of negative 53

      Other guy is MacPherson only $102,400 only downside is that he has only played the one game and scored 77 however he has a negative break even of 93 – There were huge wraps on this kid from day one and keep in mind he was #20 in the draft.

        Sloany13 · 09/05/2016 at 20:01

        will MacPherson play this week?

        Northernsoul74 · 09/05/2016 at 20:22

        Are you getting Mathieson and Macpherson confused? Macoherson wasn't taken at 20. He was taken late in the draft after dogs decided against father/son him.

          Dean · 09/05/2016 at 21:44

          sorry I should have been a little more specific, MacPherson was #20 in the November rookies draft.

    Phil · 09/05/2016 at 19:41

    Why trade weitering and adams?

      Hubba · 10/05/2016 at 19:42

      Adams is injured …finger bang bang

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 19:46

    Weitering out as he's got a 114 BE

sc king · 09/05/2016 at 19:33

big decisions, do i start brown or kerridge, mills or parish and adams or byrnjones

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 19:46

    Adams won't play this week.

    Could trade Mills as he has a 94 BE.

James · 09/05/2016 at 19:40

Mills to keys
Parish to Zorko.

Already have Petraca

Sloany13 · 09/05/2016 at 19:56

Forward Rookies to bring in for bench spot? low break-even, possible high scorer?

Phil · 09/05/2016 at 19:57

Goldy will be rested next few weeks rumor has it Daw will be taking over ruck duties in the next few weeks for the reason he was played this week.

    Im dumping goldy 1 hit wonder last year

      Mac · 09/05/2016 at 20:10

      Why do you even bother wasting your time commenting on here. No body takes any notice of the crap that comes out of your mouth.

        HOLLA · 09/05/2016 at 20:30

        I do!

    Tophawk · 09/05/2016 at 20:28

    Hi Phil!

    It's your buddy Tophawk here….Remember me?

    I am the guy you called 'dbag' and 'bum' who knows nothing about Supercoach?

    Can you please substantiate this "rumor" about Goldy being rested for the next few weeks? (Provide the community with your source) Goldy was supposedly going to be "rested" yesterday……That rumor was flushed down the crapper. Surely it wasn't you which started that one also?

    I look forward to hearing back from you with something constructive.


      Mac · 09/05/2016 at 20:33

      Was he the one that said Ablett was cooked as well?

        Tophawk · 09/05/2016 at 20:47

        I am not 100% sure. But if I had to put $5 on it paying 10-1, I would do it. LOL

        hedski · 09/05/2016 at 20:49

        Lots of ducks flying around too!!

MZD · 09/05/2016 at 20:06

Hey guys I could go Ward this week. But I'm considering taking a punt on Marc Murphy while I'm also a Carlton supporter I really do believe his past history as SC premo. Thoughts ?

    Dean · 09/05/2016 at 20:21

    I love him at his price mate and a massive POD as he is at his rock bottom price, however his scores have been very inconsistent with scores of 123,84,64,36,101,103,90

    That being said now that Carlton have found a bit of form and that belief would push a player like Murphy big time, so it would not surprise me at all if he starts scoring consistent 100's and hits $550,000 again.

    Gutsy but defiantly nothing to lose at his price and his last 3 games he has averaged 98 – Worth considering again because of his price.

      MZD · 09/05/2016 at 20:23

      My thoughts exactly. =]]

      HOLLA · 09/05/2016 at 20:32

      I think hes rubbish

    Mac · 09/05/2016 at 20:35

    Think Ward is the way to go.

      Tophawk · 09/05/2016 at 21:05

      I have had Callan Ward since round 1. Best decision I have made. He has been superb. I picked him over Gary Ablett. Despite criticisms and outcries along the way, I am obviously very happy with that call.

      Marc Murphy is old hat. He plays 3 scheizenhousen games for every 1 game where he tonnes up. The game has moved on. I see Gazza, Marc Murphy, Boyd, Robinson, Stevie J all in that category. They have all had their time in the sun. Bring in young blood.

        hedski · 09/05/2016 at 21:35

        I reckon stevies holdin his own thawk.

      Dean · 09/05/2016 at 21:51

      Obviously ward would be the better selection however there is a MASSIVE price difference between the two. I brought Ward in a couple of weeks ago.

    Hawks · 09/05/2016 at 22:12

    Murphy has scored ok the past 3 weeks in which Carlton have won, Carlton aren't going to play Ess, Freo & Coll every week, they will have some massive losses where Murphy will spud it up regularly.

    There are better options.

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 23:20

    Dangerous to to pick someone when you are a supporter as you may be using your heart more than your brain.

Sloany13 · 09/05/2016 at 20:09

Thoughts on Jayden Hunt??

    Phil · 09/05/2016 at 20:11

    Missed the boat!

    Mac · 09/05/2016 at 20:38

    Go for someone who hasn't risen in cash yet like Petracca, Keays, MacPherson

Dave · 09/05/2016 at 20:26

Petracca and Keays with a double up grade next week or Selwood and Petracca with another upgrade next week and McPherson. I'm ranked 46 and I'm going for total rank. Thanks.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/05/2016 at 21:45

    Mate if u r 46th back your gut as it must have worked out ok so far.

    Well done.

    If i was in your position which I'm not so take my advice with a grain of salt and was gunning for top spot i think u need the best players in your team ASAP and jelwood is playing some inspired footy and deserves a guernsey.

    So i suggest bringing in jelwood and petrecca.

    But back yourself in. Good luck.

    Hawks · 09/05/2016 at 22:21

    Tough call, I think Petracca, Keays & McPherson are all going to generate handy cash, and you are probably best served long-term if you can get all 3 before they increase in price.

    I would probably get Petracca & Keays this week, then McPherson & Selwood next week, then perhaps a double upgrade the week after. Depend who else your targeting, and how they are likely to be priced, as well as who you are trading out.

    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 23:29

    If I was in your position I'd paint the fence twice over the next two weeks, and not get Keays.

    JamiesNinjas13 · 10/05/2016 at 10:56

    I'm in a similar predicament mate. Don't know whether to double downgrade this week (petracca and keays) or paint the fence (petracca and dusty). This way I would miss out on Keays and acquire McPherson next week. How good will this Keays boy be?

Dean · 09/05/2016 at 20:35

Hi community, not the best this week only scored 2131 and slipped 446 and am now 7208 overall

My current team is as follows:
DEF: Rance, Rich, Adams, AMT, Brown, DBJ (Laird, Hartley)
MID: Danger, Hannebery, Ward, GAJ, Wines, Libba, Kerridge, Mills (Davis, Smith, Dunkley)
RUCK: NicNat, Goldy (Wyatt)
FWD: Hall, Motlop, Wells, Barlow, Rioli, Kennedy (Menadue, Cox)

I am contemplating whether to bring in Pendles for Mill's & Dusty Martin for Menadue, my team then will be as follows:
DEF: Rance, Rich, Adams, AMT, Brown, DBJ – (Laird, Hartley)
MID: Danger, Hannebery, Ward, GAJ, Pendles, Wines, Libba, Kerridge – (Smith, Davis, Dunkley)
RUCK: NicNat, Goldy – (Wyatt)
FWD: Hall, Motlop, Martin, Wells, Barlow, Rioli – (Kennedy, Cox)

I would prefer to leave my defence last Re: Premo's – However I am also strongly contemplating going Mills straight to Petracca and no other trades for round 8 and that would leave me with $628,000.
The main reason I am thinking this is only because all rookies I want to get rid of have low break evens, such as: Menadue 28 & Kennedy 27 – The other two rookies with high break evens are Kerridge 74 & AMT 50 however I feel both these rookies can easily reach there B/E

I have to start thinking BYE rounds also. Any advice would greatly be appreciated.

    Mac · 09/05/2016 at 20:40

    depends what your after. If your chasing rankings gotta get to full premo as quick as you can. Mills has a high breakeven as you say, if your looking for someone else to offload, could look at getting rid of Adams as he will miss this week with injury.

Nathan · 09/05/2016 at 20:38

No Rocky- is Rich an option?

    judd0 · 10/05/2016 at 00:10

    I have him and think yes his points output will increase but it's a huge risk to bring him in now.
    He has a terrible injury history and hasn't proven he can score consistently for a long time.
    Look else where in my opinion.

HOLLA · 09/05/2016 at 20:42

There must be heaps of sc teams going through a rough patch. In the last 3 weeks ive managed to jump up 40,000 places in the rankings without posting any big scores.

    Paulie Walnuts · 09/05/2016 at 20:51

    Why is this so ? Mr Felix

      HOLLA · 09/05/2016 at 20:56


poloko48 · 09/05/2016 at 21:11

Just the one trade this week, want to bring a premo in but aside from Mills the cows have a bit more fattening to do.
So it's Mills OUT Petracca IN, gives me more $$$$ in the kitty + my FWD-MID swing set back + more $$$$ value overall.

Team now (20 trades left, $386K in the bank, currently ranked 32,195 and climbing):

DEF: Heater, Laird, AMT (FWD), MBrown (FWD), DBJ, Wagner (Hartley, Ruggles)
MID: Parker, Hanners, Jelwood, Ward, Wines, Libba, Priddis, Petracca (FWD) (Davis, JSmith, Keays)
RUC: Gawn, Goldy (King (FWD))
FWD: Hall (MID), Buddy, Wells (MID), Barlow (MID), Tippett (RUC), Kerridge (MID) (Adams (DEF), DRioli)

6 trades for full on field premo – 4 DEF, 1 MID, 1 FWD


    HOLLA · 09/05/2016 at 21:18

    Dont know how you can get to full premo with 6 trades mate. More like 12 trades

      poloko48 · 09/05/2016 at 22:57

      Yeah didn't really think that thru haha. Don't think it'll take 12 trades though, prob around 10 hopefully if the cows fatten enough.

Connor · 09/05/2016 at 21:45

It hit home on the weekend – Darcy Byrne-Jones you have made me suffer enough – still can't believe I missed the rookie of the year for the second time in 3 years!! Anyone else pass on DBJ and regretting it?

    Dean · 09/05/2016 at 22:06

    Nope went Papley to DBJ was quite satisfying as he is making a ton of cash

    poloko48 · 09/05/2016 at 23:01

    Poor bugger, not the end of the world though mate. As long as you've got all the other right rookies you should still be OK. You just need a few things go your way to rise up the rankings. Chin up!

      Kev · 10/05/2016 at 08:15

      Won me three league games on the weekend! Man crush

Tom · 09/05/2016 at 22:32

is it now or never to trade in dusty this week?

    50_Shades · 09/05/2016 at 23:16

    I've got two premium trades this week and he's the first one I've locked in. He's lifted his output and his BE looks ripe at 63. But like all these things, it only takes one or two bad games to get a second chance if you decide on someone else this week. It's my second upgrade I'm struggling with zorko, Selwood, Simpson…

james · 09/05/2016 at 22:35

i have 514k for a defender who do i get – already have shaw, houli, laird







    50_Shades · 09/05/2016 at 23:14

    I'm scared to say it, but Im liking what Bartel has produced recently. He's killing at Simonds but average on the road.

    breakevens · 10/05/2016 at 08:40


Tophawk · 09/05/2016 at 22:39

Nick Riewoldt.

I have seen posts on here that he is no longer SC "relevant".

Perhaps he is, but I am not convinced.

He looks lean and sharp.

He roams through the midfield, collects lots of pill, and hammers home a few goals.

POD option community?

    SCaddict · 09/05/2016 at 23:08

    He's been dominating the competition this season especially the past 3 weeks so he's in ripping form no doubt about it.

    But you are paying close to top dollar and surely like any KPP he will be up and down at some point or maybe he'll break down like last season. Some coaches would've traded in Waite last week only to walk straight into a 49 that I doubt they were expecting after forking out max money. Will it be the same for new NRoo owners this week at Subi?

    However for those who started with him for sub $500K well they certainly picked an early POD winner so far.

      Tophawk · 09/05/2016 at 23:28

      That is exactly why he could be a POD. He no longer plays like a KPP.

      On my watchlist.


    Southern S · 09/05/2016 at 23:37

    For 560k not a chance.

    Furious Phil · 10/05/2016 at 12:28

    You'd just be chasing the car as Crouching would say.

    Eventually he will drop away or get injured again and you'll be kicking yourself that you didn't get Dusty for $50K less when you had the chance.

    Leeds17 · 11/05/2016 at 06:02

    Missed the boat I reckon

Neverweaken · 09/05/2016 at 22:46

Rance or Simpson?
Selwood or Pendles
Doing both this week. Adams out of defence and Mills out of centre

    Kev · 10/05/2016 at 08:13


    Wattsieesq · 10/05/2016 at 12:56


Derek · 09/05/2016 at 23:52

Why doesn't JPK get talked about?

His record is elite.

Has only missed 2 games in his last 110.

Has scored 100+ an amazing 83 times in those 110 games and has only been less than 90 on 12 occasions.

First game of this year he had a lazy 75, but has averaged 108 since.

125 on the weekend

BE of only 100

$60k cheaper than his starting price

In 3.9% of teams

    Nicholas · 10/05/2016 at 00:21

    Other players such as martin and shaw have been higher priorities. Also have Parker already, might get him after hus bye if form continues

    Southern S · 10/05/2016 at 00:30

    Shhhhhh Derek now others will start to get him.

    tuxCS · 10/05/2016 at 03:26

    Hush Derek, we wouldn't want people stealing our PODS now would we?

    Big G · 10/05/2016 at 05:11

    For me I like picking players that I like watching and JPK is not the most exciting guy going around. Also had him in previous years. Will see by year's end.

    POLLY · 10/05/2016 at 10:16

    Derek. You need to change the record. We get this question nearly every week from you. We get it you r a fan. JPK is a star but will share the points each week with the other swan mids. Maybe most teams have the other swans in their midfield hence the low % owned for JPK as don't want too many swans.

    By all means put him in your as a POD but do us a favor and change the record.

      Derek · 10/05/2016 at 11:48

      ok, i'll start talking about my second favorite player, Zac Dawson.

      Zac got another kick on the weekend. That's 2 kicks in two weeks!

        Loop · 10/05/2016 at 15:17

        My second favourite is Shaun McKernan..

      dale kered · 10/05/2016 at 12:46

      agree heard it all lobbe hall rubbish wingard champ put a sock in it derek talk no more rubbish any how comes from somebody in 60000 place what do you know

        tuxCS · 10/05/2016 at 14:17

        Dale, he's just kidding around, he came top 5 in NSW last year, he tried to go with some PODS that didn't pay off, and his rank is so bad because he's had to correct all of them. If you actually looked at his team it's great on paper, but like me, he's constantly let down by his players.

        Derek · 10/05/2016 at 14:17

        fair enough. i'll shut up then.

    Northernsoul74 · 10/05/2016 at 10:25

    Are you JPK's agent Derek?

Big G · 10/05/2016 at 01:52

Can Priddis re-gain his old form?

    tuxCS · 10/05/2016 at 03:38

    IMO, yes.

    JamiesNinjas13 · 10/05/2016 at 10:52

    Definitely, there hasn't been any word that he is heavily affected by injury therefore his form will come back

Luke · 10/05/2016 at 03:00

Hannebery, Parker or Ward in for Mills this week?

    Kev · 10/05/2016 at 08:12

    Hanners if money is no issue.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 10/05/2016 at 09:47

    How is your Rd 14 bye structure looking? If OK i dont think u can go wrong with any of these guys though Parker and hannas will b cheaper in a couple of weeks. If u have a few missing Rd 14 go ward.

smart as s · 10/05/2016 at 03:38

i really want a hawk defender, which one would the community suggest, birchall, burgoyne or gibson?

    Rick Grimes · 10/05/2016 at 06:23

    None I would say. I'm on Gibson and it's a rollercoaster. Burgoyne is also feast or famine. Birchall is the most consistent but not a massive ceiling. Id go him if any.

      smart as s · 10/05/2016 at 07:38

      just for hawks coverage and a POD, im going burgoyne. bust or burst!

Tommo · 10/05/2016 at 07:21

Who is more important to get this week, Simpson or Dusty? Getting Simpson means my defense is almost done as i already have Shaw, Laird and Houli. While in the forward line, i have Greene, Buddy, Wells and Merrett, so 4 premos but no ultra premos.

Would love to hear your opinion!

    Boltons blues · 10/05/2016 at 09:07

    You always wanna be let down go dusty, can have 100 by HT but finish 120, if you want consistency, Simpson will knock out 90-110 each week

50_Shades · 10/05/2016 at 07:40

I'd say Martin just because of the BE comparison. Simpson is consistent but rarely goes large. Dusty less consistent but can go big.
Both need to be in your side, but this week Id go dusty.

    Tommo · 10/05/2016 at 07:54

    Cheers mate!

Boltons blues · 10/05/2016 at 09:09

Selwood or pendles to complete my midfield? (Still have libba but that's my last problem, current minds, Ablett, danger, Parker, Cripps, Shiel, Sloane libba, need one more, money no issues

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 10/05/2016 at 09:56

    Looking at your mids only if u brought in pendles u would have 4 mids missing Rd 13. So based on this without seeing the rest of your team u should trade in jellwood for best coverage of mids during the byes.

Lisa · 10/05/2016 at 09:23

Martin or Zorko?

    Tiges · 10/05/2016 at 14:32

    Martin bottomed out this week, whereas, Zorko is almost at his max price. Think that answers the question Lisa!

@wheels_1987 · 10/05/2016 at 09:36

i brought in Rockliff

i need some cold water for my burns

2 years in a row with the rock lobster


    I N Pieman · 10/05/2016 at 14:04

    We need an extra trade allocation just for Rocky. Probably 6 in the last 2 season for him. So far. Might even go back for more later

Liam · 10/05/2016 at 09:52

How many trades should we have after the byes?
I'm looking at 8 trades (if no LTI until then).
I will have Wells and Smith as loops though.

baggy pants · 10/05/2016 at 09:58

Have Laird Adams and Weitering in backline need to trade one out more than likely Weitering. Have Shaw and Simpson. Communities thoughts on next best premo defender prefer one without the round 14 bye.

    gator59 · 10/05/2016 at 10:05

    Rance,,, Docherty or Gibson

      baggy pants · 10/05/2016 at 11:30

      Thanks I was tossing up between Rance and Docherty hard to split them

Wizard of Ertz · 10/05/2016 at 10:25

Upgrading McGovern (Adel) to either Martin or Franklin

I like Martin's price and BE, but prefer Franklin's bye and lower ownership percentage.


    James · 10/05/2016 at 11:01


Northernsoul74 · 10/05/2016 at 10:28

Seems everyone sees Dusty as a must have at some point. Personally I'll be looking get in Zorko, Dahlhaus, or Lids before him.

    JamiesNinjas13 · 10/05/2016 at 10:49

    You can't always trade in the most expensive players. The way to a full premium team is to get in fallen premiums mate which Martin definitely is

    SCaddict · 10/05/2016 at 14:42

    Dusty at just a tick over $500K is hard to resist. Zorko and Dahl will eventually have a quiet patch at some point (hopefully around the byes) that will see their price temporarily dip so that's when a lot of coaches will snap them up.

    Lids is about to undergo such a price free fall himself then he'll more than likely to be hard to resist if he drops to around $500K and regains form/match fitness.

    Kev · 10/05/2016 at 16:35

    Lids' b.e is 200ish!

Tommy · 10/05/2016 at 10:58

How many trades should we aim to be on at the byes?

    I N Pieman · 10/05/2016 at 11:52

    Around 14 if possible

    tuxCS · 10/05/2016 at 14:13

    It honestly doesn't matter, as long as you use those trades to get closer to full premo, you can use as many as you like, just aim to have about 5-6 left for finals

      Lachie · 10/05/2016 at 14:54

      it does matter. It depends whether you are playing for finals, or overall ranking. If you are playing for overall you can trade as quick as possible. Whereas playing for your league finals then you should save around 5-10 trades.

Jason · 10/05/2016 at 11:45

Jasper Pittard or Sam Docherty

    Tommo · 10/05/2016 at 11:47

    Docherty, definitely will be more consistent.

Dave · 10/05/2016 at 12:15

What are thoughts on westhoff? Has averaged over 90 his last 3 years top of 98. He is now priced 110k less than starting price.

    Powerage · 10/05/2016 at 12:29

    I like him, will be bringing him in for S.Gray if he doesn't play this week

Rick Grimes · 10/05/2016 at 12:21

Any chance Gray will be back this week? I've held him, but now I also have Rocky and Wells waylaid. This season is ripping me a new one.

    siri · 10/05/2016 at 12:31

    Coach has said he is a big chance to play this week. I got him on my bench too

    Tiges · 10/05/2016 at 14:34

    Hinkley – "Gray is a real chance to play aganist Carlton this week".
    Wells came back on the field and should play,
    Rocky is gone for a few weeks. Too injury prone – trade imo.

    Powerage · 10/05/2016 at 18:27

    He won't play 1 more week

Sarah · 10/05/2016 at 12:51

Would really appreciate any thoughts/trades I should make on my team 🙂 23 trades 270k in the bank. Ranked 288th

Shaw laird rich Bartel dbj Adams – byrne brown
Danger Parker ward Pendles Libba mills hewett m- smith Davis Dunkley
Gawn Goldy – goetz
Dahl hall Barlow wells kerridge Kennedy- petracca menadue

    Powerage · 10/05/2016 at 13:08

    Double downgrade Davis and Menadue for Pettraca and Keays IMO

      dale kered · 10/05/2016 at 13:23

      already has petracca

    Northernsoul74 · 10/05/2016 at 13:25

    Looks like you have Petracca already. Mills down to Keays then maybe upgrade Davis.

    Paulie Walnuts · 10/05/2016 at 15:17

    Out – Mills
    In – Dusty via DPP – Wells might be out with week,didn't play much of the last 1/4, good coverage plus you will need him at some stage
    Out – Mills
    In – Priddis at 511k – BE 154 though ,maybe next week

    I've kept Dunkley also, playing well in VFL
    I'd keep Davis for loopholes,not worth wasting a trade IMO

Why · 10/05/2016 at 13:16

Why has Supercoach changed this week, so that when you click on other teams in your league, it now only shows 22 players instead of the entire squad of 30 like it has always done (and did last week)?

    I N Pieman · 10/05/2016 at 13:32

    Good point. No idea why they have done that

    Lachie · 10/05/2016 at 14:54

    yeah i noticed that. It also doesnt sort by position which is annoying.

      Why · 10/05/2016 at 15:24

      Yeah, that's annoying too.

      I focus on league rather than overall, and I use my upcoming opponent/s to determine trade strategy, and now all of a sudden that's out the window!

Hey guys who do you think i should bring in this week Pendles, Hanners or Ward

    I N Pieman · 10/05/2016 at 13:24

    Like Hanners

The Beard · 10/05/2016 at 13:28

Anyone able to share with me Pendlebury, M Boyd & Simpsons break even?


    Tommo · 10/05/2016 at 13:42

    Just search up their name with the word "supercoach" at the end, and the website footywire has some very good statistics. Its a very helpful website 🙂

    Wattsieesq · 10/05/2016 at 15:25

    108, 72, 95

I N Pieman · 10/05/2016 at 14:06

Pendles 108 Boyd 72 Simmo 95

    The Beard · 10/05/2016 at 14:16

    Thanks mate.

    Can't decide if I bring n Boyd or Pendles this week 😐

      Tiges · 10/05/2016 at 14:35

      Could grab Pendles for around the same price next week mate! Boyd will go up if he gets his classic '120' score his done the last three weeks.
      Boyd in this week, Pendles in next IMO!

I N Pieman · 10/05/2016 at 14:06

Adams you bugger. Wrecked all my plans for this week

    tuxCS · 10/05/2016 at 14:10

    No bench cover? He doesn't have to be traded out this week if you can cover him

    SCaddict · 10/05/2016 at 14:35

    What were those grand plans Pieman … if you don't mind me asking?

    I offed him last week as Heater was a team priority for Addicts and giving up Adams was the only viable way to get him in.

      I N Pieman · 10/05/2016 at 15:39

      I still have Weit. I was hoping he would be back the same week as Laird for an upgrade. Now with Adams down that would leave no cover. I do have DJB & Tipa to cover them but I may go Weit to Simpson. I also have LMac to deal with & Mills. Might wing it & downgrade LMac & turn Mills into Ward. Too many bloody big decisions

    Kev · 10/05/2016 at 16:32

    Same boat, INP. Monday morning was MMcG/Mills out for petracca/premo. No Adams cover has me hitting that reverse trades button again and again. Maddening!

azza · 10/05/2016 at 14:17

rance vs docherty?
already have kade simpson

    Tiges · 10/05/2016 at 14:35


    Lachie · 10/05/2016 at 14:52

    docherty 100%

Mickey · 10/05/2016 at 14:36

Zorko or Cripps to fill Mill's spot

    Lachie · 10/05/2016 at 14:51

    zork, i'd be looking at others imo

David · 10/05/2016 at 14:43

Who to bring in as a priority this week…..Simpson or Zorko???

    Lachie · 10/05/2016 at 14:51


    I N Pieman · 10/05/2016 at 15:49

    Zorko seems to always have a quiet patch. I picked him up for 400k last year when he bottomed out & no one was looking, he went on a tear & smashed it. Seems to have carried it on but I'd expect him to drop under 500k at some point. At which time I will snaffle him again. Simpson for mine

      David · 10/05/2016 at 15:58

      thanks for your opinion…..I guess the question is whether we should upgrade defence or attack first…my mids and rucks are now at full premo….Zorko would just about finish my forwards….with Kerridge at F6…or Simpson , who would start the process of bolstering my rookie/spud defence….currently have Dea, DBJ, Brown and Byrne all on the ground…only Shaw and Boyd holding it together back there.

Tom McV · 10/05/2016 at 15:00

Is Lachie Neale supercoach relevant? Keeps getting it down week in and week out lowest score of 92 every other score has been above 100. I want a POD in my side? is he the one I should pick??

    I N Pieman · 10/05/2016 at 15:47

    He is relevant. No Fyfe even more

Davo · 10/05/2016 at 15:04

Is it advisable to have Parker, Mitchell and Hannebery in the one side….I like all of them is the trouble

    tuxCS · 10/05/2016 at 15:19

    Parker and Hannebery yes, Mitchell (im assuming the one from Sydney) is still a bit young, and not worth his price IMO.

    JamiesNinjas13 · 10/05/2016 at 15:23

    Very hard for all of them to avg 105+, let alone JPK, Keiren Jack and their other 500 midfielders running around. Pick 2 of Parker, Hanners or JPK to be safe i think

    I N Pieman · 10/05/2016 at 15:46

    That would be a bye headache

CamN17 · 10/05/2016 at 15:16

Looking at Priddis as an upgrade, a premo that has lost a lot of $$$. Is he injured? Anyone heard anything around him? Thoughts or updates please.

    tuxCS · 10/05/2016 at 15:20

    I'm pretty sure he's carrying a bit of a niggle (just speculation), but i think he might just be in a bad stretch of from rn

    Wattsieesq · 10/05/2016 at 15:30

    Priddis had a thigh strain and hip soreness that meant he missed the Tiger's game about 3 weeks ago. He has had groin problems as well. While he's been able to get out on the park, he hasn't been close to 100%. I'd wait until form comes back.

      I N Pieman · 10/05/2016 at 15:46

      Agree with that. Need to see a turn of form. You can get 70 scores from a rookie

Hoot · 10/05/2016 at 15:17


worth a TOP 6 spot in Def?

Top 10?

    JamiesNinjas13 · 10/05/2016 at 15:26

    Nearly brought him in last week but no-risk instincts kicked in and I brought in rollercoaster houli. Pittard looks to have cleaned up his inconsistencies and is one of the most exciting running half backs in the game. In saying this I don't think he will make Top 6 but maybe he will break top 10

      tuxCS · 10/05/2016 at 15:34

      Wait, so you didn't want to take any risks so you went Houli? Even that choice takes balls.

        JamiesNinjas13 · 10/05/2016 at 16:21

        When I pick my premiums this early on, I look at their history and not just what they got in the last 3 rounds. Finished as a top 6 defender last year (Proven) and top 10 in 2013. Has played 108 out of the last possible 110 home and away games (Durable). His role hasn't changed either (Less risk). Pittard is not proven, unconsistent who shows glimpses of solid scores but has not broken out. Each defender has their risks but Houli has far less risks than Pittard. Keep in mind I already had Shaw, Doc and Laird at the time lol.

tuxCS · 10/05/2016 at 15:24

So an alarming amount of coaches (2.19%) have traded out Gary Ablett this week. WHY?!

    Tommo · 10/05/2016 at 15:38

    Baffling to say the least, despite his "disappointing" form, that was his first score under 100 all season.

      tuxCS · 10/05/2016 at 15:42

      And the only reason he got below 100 last week was because he was playing a new role up forward, which failed, so next week he'll be back in the guts.

    I N Pieman · 10/05/2016 at 15:44

    They deserve to have their teams removed from existence. Just simply not allowed!

    Kev · 10/05/2016 at 16:22

    Cos Herald Sun told them to

      tuxCS · 10/05/2016 at 16:33

      I actually think that might be it Kev haha

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 10/05/2016 at 16:41

    You think that is scary try this one.
    Over 7.5% of teams still have fyfe in their team!
    That is over 20,000 teams!

Alex · 10/05/2016 at 15:58

Docherty/Simpson, Danger/Jellwood, JPK, Hannebery/Parker. Which ones to not get?

Banksie700 · 10/05/2016 at 16:08

gday community I'm looking for a good mid POD, thinking of someone like Lachie Hunter or Jack Stevens, i know they both had soccer rounds but that should be their low scores for this year. Can i please have thoughts?

Jess_coach · 10/05/2016 at 16:44

Double downgrade this week to petracca and keays.

Double upgrade next week of Mcarthy to Priddis and AMT to prem def such as laird or rance.

Sound good?

    Boltons Blues · 10/05/2016 at 19:03

    Im passing on Keayes, im hoping for MacPherson to be the goods next week.
    im "painting the fence" 2 weeks in a row

Slatsy · 10/05/2016 at 18:20

Did anyone watch the port game?
Keen to get the community's view on whether the Trengove ruck scoring is sustainable with Lobbe out for 10-12 and no backup? Or am I just chasing a one hit wonder?

Tophawk · 10/05/2016 at 21:03

Hi community,

Anyone who does not have the big V on Danger on Friday night is a mug!!

Paddy will be salivating/purring at the prospect of taking on his old crew (aka Adelaide Crows) as a "visitor" in their home town.

Will be a bloody ripper! Cant wait.
