Barron Von CrowJust when you think you’ve got your rookies pegged, some come out and surprise you.

That’s what we’ve seen in a good way with players such as Ben Kennedy and Matthew Dea and Sam Kerridge, players who we thought might be coming to the end of their fantasy football lives, only to come out and knock out some very good form, earning themselves some nice cash and scoring well for us on field.

And on the other side, just when you think you’ve got a gem of a pick on your hands, they go and blow all your plans to smithereens, as we’ve now seen with Darcy Byrne-Jones and Darcy MacPherson.

It’s also a massive week for CoachKings, with two matches exclusive to South Australia with the Crows and Power games on Saturday and two exclusive matches for Victoria, NSW and Tasmania, who have the St Kilda VS Fremantle match and the big Dreamtime matchup at the MCG with Essendon VS Richmond.


MIDFIELDERS

Callum Mills

SC Price: $311,100 | AF Price: $309,000 | CoachKings Price: $5,400
Featured CoachKings Contest: Friday, Sydney VS North Melbourne
Round 9 Stats: 15 disposals, 6 marks, 1 tackle, 75 SCPoints, 59 AFPoints, 82 CKPoints

He’s still owned by 20.7% of all teams in Supercoach, but the time to move on Mills has come. He shed $9.6K this week despite the decent score and while his current BE is 52, at best he’s likely to only gain back the $10-$15K he lost. With a few guys like Jacob Hopper on the bubble and Rhys Mathieson about to play his 2nd game, now might be the time to make a move on Mills if you still own him. Currently 38.2% of all Mills owners are downgrading him to Hopper.

Clayton Oliver

SC Price: $310,900 | AF Price: $334,000 | CoachKings Price: $5,400
Featured CoachKings Contest: Saturday, Melbourne VS Port Adelaide (SA VENUES ONLY)
Round 9 Stats: 21 disposals, 3 marks, 5 tackles, 5 inside 50’s, 7 clearances, 82 SCPoints, 79 AFPoints, 66 CKPoints

Oliver has been up and down like a yo-yo over his last 4 games, with scores of 41, 83, 49 and 82 in Supercoach. He ended up being 2nd for score involvements for the Demons last week, showing how important he’s becoming for the Demons in the middle. He gained $16.8K on the weekend and has a BE of 55, so he still has a little bit of juice left in him, so if you keep him one more week, at worst he’ll probably stay the same price. Mathieson still has 1 more week in him before he hits the bubble, so that could be the move to make next week. Hard to skip him in CoachKings.

Christian Petracca

SC Price: $246,800 | AF Price: $324,000 | CoachKings Price: $6,300
Featured CoachKings Contest: Saturday, Melbourne VS Port Adelaide (SA VENUES ONLY)
Round 9 Stats: 21 disposal, 6 marks, 7 tackles, 5 inside 50’s, 4 behinds, 105 SCPoints, 106 AFPoints, 95 CKPoints

Kind of scary to imagine what Petracca’s score could have looked like if he nailed his shots on goal, but he was still a much deserved winner of the Round 9 Rising Star nomination. He gained a cool $62.5K for his performance on the weekend and has a BE of -18 and another projected price rise of 43K on the cards for this week. He’s likely to keep all the way through or until the bye rounds. He’s now at a higher price in CoachKings, but he’s still proving value for money.

Jacob Hopper

SC Price: $193,800 | AF Price: $298,000 | CoachKings Price: $4,600
Featured CoachKings Contest: Saturday, Adelaide VS GWS (SA VENUES ONLY)
Round 9 Stats: 18 disposals, 6 marks, 3 tackles, 74 SCPoints, 74 AFPoints, 75 CKPoints

Hopper spent a bit more time in the GWS forward line this week, hence the reason for his disposal numbers dropping from 32 to 18 and his clearance numbers dropping from 9 to 3. One must also consider the quality of the opposition too, I’m sure playing against the Gold Coast midfield and the Western Bulldogs midfield are vastly different things at the moment. He’s now on the bubble with a BE of -64, with the top 5 trades being downgrades from Oliver, Ben Kennedy, Mills, Menadue and Parish for him. I’m 50/50 on him myself, cash is usually the #1 priority when it comes to downgrade, so you’re potentially getting 80K less by downgrading to Hopper, but he definitely has higher scoring potential than someone like Mathieson. Will make a good CoachKings option this week.

Darcy Parish

SC Price: $329,800 | AF Price: $345,000 | CoachKings Price: $5,200
Featured CoachKings Contest: Saturday, Essendon VS Richmond (VIC, NSW & TAS VENUES ONLY)
Round 9 Stats: 20 disposals, 2 marks, 3 tackles, 50 SCPoints, 51 AFPoints, 46 CKPoints

20 disposals wasn’t much lower than his usual tally, but he was hurt by 18 of them being handballs (which isn’t unusual for Parish), as well as having 15 uncontested possessions and 3 frees against. He only fell $2K in price and while his BE is only 68 this week, an achievable score for Parish, he’s likely peaked in price. He’s at a reasonable price in CoachKings, but he has been struggling a bit in fantasy football. He has a chance to have a bounce back game.


 

FORWARDS

Sam Kerridge

SC Price: $383,400 | AF Price: $430,000 | CoachKings Price: $5,800
Round 9 Stats: 29 disposals, 4 marks, 4 tackles, 5 clearances, 5 inside 50’s, 105 SCPoints, 104 AFPoints, 86 CKPoints

The Kedge must get his mojo on when playing the Roo’s, he’s usually played well against them and it continued on the weekend with a very nice score of 105 SCPoints. His BE is 57, so there’s still cash to be made and he is capable of scoring in triple figures if he has a good game. Kerridge will likely be the last guy we look to downgrade as long as he keeps up with some good scores.

Ben Kennedy

SC Price: $354,800 | AF Price: $359,000 | CoachKings Price: $6,900
Featured CoachKings Contest: Saturday, Melbourne VS Port Adelaide (SA VENUES ONLY)
Round 9 Stats: 17 disposals, 2 marks, 1 goal, 3 tackles, 81 SCPoints, 65 AFPoints, 85 CKPoints

It looked like Kennedy might have peaked after Round 6, he was averaging just 59 SCPoints between Rounds 3 and 6 and had lost $1.5K after a score of 69 against the Saints. Since then he’s averaged 82 SCPoints and risen another $62K. With his current form and a BE of 54 I’d keep him for a few more weeks. He’s still in 41% of teams, so there’s plenty who own him. His value in CoachKings is probably diminishing a tad though.

Mitch McGovern

SC Price: $277,900 | AF Price: $278,000 | CoachKings Price: $6,200
Featured CoachKings Contest: Saturday, Adelaide VS GWS (SA VENUES ONLY)
Round 9 Stats: 15 disposals, 5 marks, 3 goals, 2 goal assists, 73 SCPoints, 69 AFPoints, 118 CKPoints

McGovern racked up new career highs in goals and disposals, which isn’t surprising considering he was playing an injury ravaged Gold Coast. He’s owned by just 6.9% of teams now, it’s understandable given his scoring ceiling. If you still have him his BE is just 25 this week, so he should keep for a few more weeks. Even with the big game in CoachKings last week, I’m not sure if he has the ability to have another big game like that against GWS, but he could be an option if you run low on cash.


 

DEFENDERS

 

Matthew Dea

SC Price: $353,400 | AF Price: $347,000 | CoachKings Price: $6,700
Featured CoachKings Contest: Saturday, Essendon VS Richmond (VIC, NSW & TAS VENUES ONLY)
Round 9 Stats: 26 disposals, 15 marks, 2 tackles, 126 SCPoints, 122 AFPoints, 145 CKPoints

Another like Ben Kennedy who looked like he had peaked, he started strongly, then had scores of 39 and 41 in Rounds 5 and 6 which lost him money. He’s now averaging 97 SCPoints over his last 3 games and has gained $56.5K. Another one that proves that trading out rookie price players is an art. With that big score of 126 SCPoints his BE has been pushed all the way down to -3, which means his BE is going to be relatively low until Round 12 when that score rolls out of his 3 round average. He should push over the 400K mark if he plays reasonably well. His current form would make him someone to consider in CoachKings.

Darcy Byrne-Jones

SC Price: $323,200 | AF Price: $282,000 | CoachKings Price: $5,800
Featured CoachKings Contest: Saturday, Melbourne VS Port Adelaide (SA VENUES ONLY)
Round 9 Stats: 12 disposals, 2 marks, 3 tackles, 57 SCPoints, 49 AFPoints, 59 CKPoints

How fortunes can change. After averaging 92 SCPoints between Round 4 to 7, DBJ has produced scores of 31 and 57 over the last fortnight. He did sustain a leg injury last week, so he did spend quite a lot of time on the bench. His BE is now 105 so that means he’s gotta go. Most popular downgrades at the moment are Bailey Williams (33.5% of trades involving DBJ) and Jacob Hopper (6%), while the most popular upgrades are Sam Docherty (12.6%) and Alex Rance (4%).

Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti

SC Price: $352,100 | AF Price: $326,000 | CoachKings Price: $6,200
Featured CoachKings Contest: Saturday, Essendon VS Richmond (VIC, NSW & TAS VENUES ONLY)
Round 9 Stats: 20 disposals, 9 marks, 4 tackles, 96 SCPoints, 93 AFPoints, 92 CKPoints

His 2nd highest score this year, he gained almost $25K for that effort on the weekend and has pushed his BE down to 45. Owned by 50% of all Supercoachers still, he should last for a few more weeks now. You’d have to really think about picking him up in CoachKings this week.


 

RUCKS

Mason Cox

SC Price: $232,600 | AF Price: $241,000 | CoachKings Price: $5,300
Featured CoachKings Contest: Sunday, Collingwood VS Western Bulldogs
Round 9 Stats: 9 kicks, 3 marks, 2 goals, 4 hitouts, 62 SCPoints, 51 AFPoints, 76 CKPoints

Cox continues to play well at AFL level, especially for someone who has such limited experience playing Aussie Rules. He’s already gained $115K and his BE is still in negative territory at -25, so I wouldn’t expect we’d be looking to trade him out until he ticks over the $300K mark, which will be another 2-3 weeks yet. I’d be looking to grab him in CoachKings this week.


 

 

THE BEST OF THE REST…

Jacob Weitering – Still owned by 24% of teams surprisingly, he returned with just 11 touches and a score of 38 SCPoints. He lost $35.5K and with a BE of 120 this week is projected to lost another $25K. If you have him then move him out.

Connor Menadue – Usual for Menadue with just 46 SCPoints, but has lost $1.4K this week. BE is 56, if you don’t need a ton of cash this week, then he’s one to look at downgrading.

Mitch Brown – Had a good game in front of goals, kicking 4 majors for 83 points in both Supercoach and AFL Fantasy. Now sits with a BE of 75.

Peter Wright – Considering the lack of Suns success on the weekend, Wright managed to have a very good game, despite being a bit wayward in front of goals, kicking 3.2. 95 SCPoints is his second highest return of the year.

Bailey Williams – Decent stats, but a lot of uncontested possessions (14 uncontested and only 4 contested last week) which will limit his scores in Supercoach. On the bubble with a BE of -44, but carries big questions about his JS.

Daniel Currie – Held his own against Jacobs in the ruck, but fractured a finger and will be out for the next 2-4 weeks.

George Hewett – Still in almost 20% of teams, he had a great game against the Hawks with a score of 87 SCPoints. His BE is down to 19 this week and if he can have another couple of weeks of decent scoring he should pop over the 300K mark, which he had looked like he’d struggle to do a few weeks ago.

Darcy MacPherson – Copped a medial ligament injury to his right knee with no timetable for his return. Big bummer to the 36,473 Supercoachers that own him.

Josh Smith – Average score of 67 for Smith, but plenty of cash left in him with a BE of just 3.

Mason Redman – Just didn’t get going on the weekend, scoring just 20 SCPoints. Still has a BE of 21 though, but hasn’t proved that he’ll be a good player in fantasy football yet, averaging just 34 SCPoints over 3 games.

Ben Crocker – Just 29 SCPoints for Crocker, but still has a BE of -7, so potential to earn cash is still there, as long as he continues to get a game.

Liam Sumner – Usual type score from Sumner with 45 SCPoints. BE is 18, so no need to get rid of him if you are a part of the 4.8% of teams that own him.

Josh Wagner – He’s had two low scoring games in a row now with scores of 43 against the Bulldogs and 56 against Melbourne last week. His BE is 75 and while he has shown he can score about that, his current form suggests he won’t.

Ryan Davis – Well, his JS should be pretty solid with all of the Suns injury, even if his fantasy football scoring isn’t that great. He did score 66 on the weekend, which is his highest score all year and his BE is 19, so he could make some cash. Only problem is the Suns have West Coast in Perth and Sydney on the cards over the next fortnight.

Callum Ah Chee – Just a 26 from Ah Chee as he left the ground with a concussion.

Tom Ruggles – A late inclusion and he hit his average of 60 perfectly with a score of 60 SCPoints against the Pies. His BE is 30, but the question is will he keep his spot against Carlton?

Michael Hartley – Might be coming near Hartley’s time, his BE is 49 and his average is 67.8 SCPoints. He should do OK against the Tigers and Fremantle, so I’d probably keep him there and maybe look to offload once his BE rises and he has to play Hawthorn, GWS and West Coast.

Ciaran Byrne – Big game from Byrne with a score of 112 SCPoints. He’s been ticking along nicely for the 6.7% of teams that own him, he’s passed the $300K mark and has a BE of 22 coming up. His BE will jump up once the big score rolls out, but as long as he scores well he’ll continue to earn money.

Ben Keays – Just the 53 from Keays, who has earned almost $100K now. His BE is just in the minus range at -1 while the Lions have a 50/50 schedule coming up over the next 6 weeks with games against Hawthorn, Carlton, Fremantle, West Coast, Richmond and Gold Coast.

Rhys Mathieson – Scored 59 in his first game against Melbourne. We still have one more week to evaluate him before he reaches the bubble though.

Connor Blakely – Not many guys own this bloke (only 0.8%), but he pumped out a massive score of 122 over the weekend. He had only scored 44, 55 and 40 over his first 3 games, so it might just be an aberration, rather than the beginning of an ongoing trend. Still, it’s pushed his BE down to -26, so he has the potential to earn a fair chunk of cash over the next two weeks if he continues to score decently.

Jayden Short – Average is 46 and BE is 51. He looks like he’s in the same boat as his teammate Menadue.

Kaiden Brand – Solid but not spectacular, with a score of 46 SCPoints on the weekend and a season average of 54. You could probably still buy him as he’s just $163K, but his BE is already at 0 and would only project out to adding another 100K to his price if his current scoring rate continues.

Wayne Milera – Managed to hit the scoreboard and kick 3 goals for a score of 76 SCPoints. BE is just 10 and still owned by 8.3% of teams.

Jonathan Freeman – Played his 2nd game and scored just 59 after a 27 the previous week. Costs $218K and his BE is already 45, which is higher than his average of 43. I’d avoid.

Keegan Brooksby – Played his 3 games and actually lost $7K, he’s averaging just 38 SCPoints and his BE is 37. Job security might improve a tad with Currie out.

Tim Mohr – Can’t catch a break after suffering another injury, this time a hamstring injury that will likely keep him out for 5 to 6 weeks. Caleb Marchbank has hurt his ankle again as well, so no go there as an immediate replacement either.

Jackson Paine – His name makes him sound like a wrestler Hulk Hogan would have taken on in the 80’s, it’s Rowdy Roddy Piper and Jackson Paine VS Hulk Hogan and the Macho Man!!! Anyway, he scored a 45 in his first game of the year and while he is only $127K I don’t think his scoring potential is all that great. Still one more week to take a look at him though.

Aaron Mullet – Probably past our comfortable price range now that he’s $226K, he’s scoring OK with an average of 59 and a 68 to his name last week.

Josh Schache – With a score of 20 SCPoints he lost 31K last week and now has a BE 88.

Kieran Collins – Not a great start for Collins with a score of just 17 SCPoints his BE is already 36 after just one game.

Oscar McDonald – Still on the bubble as he’s only played 2 games, but is averaging just 45 SCPoints. Job security isn’t secure either.

Jade Gresham – Another one who is like Menadue, doesn’t score all that well and doesn’t make any cash either.

Conor McKenna – Scored just 11 on the weekend and is now $700 cheaper than his original starting price.

Trent West – Played his first game of the year and scored decently with a score of 72. Slightly higher price than most at $196K, but his performances and job security have never been consistent.

Daniel Gorringe – You know things are bad when Gorringe is getting a game. He did OK with a score of 50 SCPoints, but his BE is 33 thanks to his price of $222K and he’s never displayed great scoring potential.

Jayden Hunt – Averaging just 50 over his 6 games and his BE is now 54. Lucky only 1.4% of teams own him.


 

AROUND THE GROUNDS…

Matthew Goodyear – Led the Collingwood VFL side for possessions with 28 in their narrow win over Williamstown. Also added 2 goals, 3 marks and 7 tackles.

Jack Trengove – Hit the 30 disposal mark again, with 30 disposals, 3 marks and 5 tackles in Casey Scorpions 6 point win over the Box Hill Hawks.

Teia Miles – Miles had a better day in front of goals this week, kicking 4.2 as well as adding 10 disposals, 6 marks and 3 tackles for Box Hill.

Aaron Francis – Made his debut for the Bombers, albeit the VFL version, but had a quiet game with 10 disposals, 6 marks and 1 tackle. He’ll be brought along slowly you’d think as he recovers from his injury layoff.

Will Hams – Led the way for the Bombers with 35 disposals, 5 marks and 5 tackles in their 19 point loss to Footscray.

Sam Grimley – Wasn’t much happening for Grimley on Saturday with just 8 touches, 4 marks, 2 hitouts and a behind to his name.

Josh Dunkley – Good game for Dunkley, grabbing 31 disposals, 7 marks and 5 tackles for Footscray.

Eli Templeton- Continues to push his case for a recall, racking up 31 disposals, 7 marks and a goal for Sandringham in their win over Werribee.

Jack Lonie – Another Sainter playing well in the two’s, Lonnie booted 4 goals as well as having 29 disposals, 4 marks and 6 tackles.

Tom Lee – Decent game for Lee with 19 disposals, 1 mark, 4 rebound 50’s and a goal for the Zebras. Probably won’t be in line for a recall this week.

Tom Curren – A bit more quiet than usual for Curren with 16 disposals, but did some good defensive work with 10 tackles

Dougal Howard – Did some OK work in the ruck with 20 hitouts and hit the scoreboard for a goal. Also had 17 disposals and 5 marks

Sam Collins – Collins had 17 disposals, 7 marks and 4 rebound 50’s in Peel Thunders super high scoring match in which they beat East Perth 39-25. With the continued injuries to the Dockers you’d think he might have a chance of getting a game soon.

Darcy Tucker – Probably weren’t many stats to go around with Barlow zooming them all up himself, but Tucker had 16 disposals and 7 tackles for the Thunder.

Michael Apeness – Quiet game for Apeness, but it wasn’t exactly raining goals on the weekend, grabbing just 8 disposals, 4 tackles and 4 hitouts.

Cameron Loersch – Not many going around for the Suns in the NEAFL, but Loersch managed to kick a pair of goals as well as have 15 disposals and 5 marks in the Suns big loss to Redland.

Matthew Kennedy – Kennedy had 26 touches for the UWS Giants against the Brisbane Lions, which was probably a pretty good effort considering Adam Tomlinson had 52 and Jack Steele had 43! Kennedy also booted 3 goals and had 10 marks as the Giants beat the Lions by 53 points.

Harrison Himmelberg – Himmelberg is improving as he gets more games under his belt, he had 24 touches, 4 marks and kicked a goal.

Eric Hipwood – Got on the end of a few goals a fortnight ago, but could only managed the 1 goal last week, as well as 8 disposals and a mark. Brisbane, like their QLD counterparts, have brought up quite a few players this year, so there isn’t a ton of quality guys running around their reserves at the moment.

 

And that’s it for the Rookie Scout Report this week. So are any of you culling some rookies this week? And will you be looking at upgrades to premo picks or downgrading to new rookies? Let us know in the comments below, or hit us up on Twitter @BarronVonCrow

Cant justify trading Menadue due to his low price. Team is almost full premium so it's:

DBJ to Williams
Kerridge to Zorko

Jumping the gun on Kerridge to secure zorko

    Ketut · 26/05/2016 at 12:51

    Thinking about doing the same but with Kennedy. Only problem is I want Priddis too. Is Priddis a must have at that price?

      Jess_coach · 26/05/2016 at 13:12

      Think Priddis might be back to form but definitely not a must have. Still, I like priddis more than JJK. If you look at their past year averages its:

      JJK: 99, 79, 92 (2013, 2014, 2015 respectively)

      Priddis: 101, 112, 113 ( ^ ^ ^)

      While JJK has only fallen below 80 once this year, he can clearly have shockers, which is understandable. But his scores of last year, for example, consisted of fails such as 41, 57, 58, 55, 66, 74, and alot of 70s/80s. Consistency is a real problem, and you have to be willing to take similar scores like these this year (along with his high-scoring weeks). Priddis, on the other hand, has only dropped below 75 three to four times in the last 4 years. Priddis wont let you down. Will be surprised if JJK ends up averaging 100 (he usually needs about 4 goals a week to score decently)

        daisy · 26/05/2016 at 13:52

        Jess, I presume that Ketut meant trading out Ben Kennedy instead of Kerridge??

    Roger · 26/05/2016 at 13:37

    Pretty solid.
    I'm keeping kerridge for maybe an extra week or two at most. Manly because i needed to trade Byrne jones to Williams and upgraded brown to docherty.
    Depending on what happens might trade kerridge for a rookie, have 450k then upgrade someone like cox or smith to Gray.

      Jess_coach · 26/05/2016 at 14:21

      Ahhh okay lol sorry about that. So many kennedys

        Ketut · 26/05/2016 at 16:26

        Yes Melbournes Kennedy, sorry should have clarified, reading back on my comment now I can see how you would have thought I meant Josh.

Ketut · 26/05/2016 at 12:45

Dan Currie did what?? Oh dear….

    jockreynolds · 26/05/2016 at 12:53

    Haa Barron must have been watching too much of the old red tubes!! Cheers mate just edited it

@stewy_chewy · 26/05/2016 at 12:48

Thoughts on Chad Wingard and Luke Brown

    breakevens · 26/05/2016 at 12:51

    Luke Brown is shit full stop
    Chad Wingward looks like a must have at the moment

      Steeeve · 26/05/2016 at 13:01

      If you want your six forwards to be amongst the top 10 all year Wingard is certainly not a must have.

      SWRoosterXXX · 26/05/2016 at 14:00

      Wingard a must have?? So he tops the tonne for the first time in six games and he is all of a sudden a must have??
      Bloke has only gone over 80 twice this season – so he isn't appealing as a must have to me.
      Potentially underpirced if he can turn things around, but hardly a must have!!!

      Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 14:54

      He's not too bad of a player but not supercoach relevant that's for sure.

      Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 14:54

      Luke Brown*

    Hazey · 26/05/2016 at 20:11

    I'm toying with the idea of upgrading a rookie to Wingard as eventual F7

Sarah · 26/05/2016 at 12:50

You missed a bit of a typo in Currie's rundown!!!

    jockreynolds · 26/05/2016 at 12:52

    WHOA!! Haaa Barron you BEAST!! Just edited it cheers mate

    @BarronVonCrow · 26/05/2016 at 13:29

    I gotta put my hand up on that one and say I have no idea how the hell I put an F in there other than I was typing fast and it was 1:30am in the morning. That's what ya get for cutting time on revisions!

    Cameron · 26/05/2016 at 13:19

    Would be a great pick if you could select him as a defender but not as a midfielder

    Choppy · 26/05/2016 at 13:25

    Cant argue with those numbers, he just sits in the back half accumulating nice cheap stats! Not for me though, as hes not in that top echelon of mids. Robbie Gray and Matty Priddis aren't much more expensive – and they are GUNS

    Leeds17 · 26/05/2016 at 21:20

    Shouldnt be looking to bring in a mid who's doing very well to crack 100 ave at this stage of the year.

    CashCows · 26/05/2016 at 22:06

    Is scoring well, however with so many other Essendon players in sides, it makes it tough trade out one for another, especially if you are considering bye rounds

    judd0 · 27/05/2016 at 00:45

    Would of been awesome to of had him from the start.
    But at this stage you should only be looking at the top mids to bring into your team.

Jim · 26/05/2016 at 13:32

Are people trading out M. Brown is it time for him to go? If DJB isnt named thinking of trading out Brown and use DJB as a loop hole.

    Derek · 26/05/2016 at 13:53

    DBJ is an expensive loophole

      Jim · 26/05/2016 at 13:55

      Trade him out next week? He wont lose or gain. M. Brown could rise but most likely lose?

        Steeeve · 26/05/2016 at 15:09

        Honestly hadn't thought of that… Something to consider if DBJ is not named for sure!

    Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 14:55

    Not a big fan of this move because next week you may have other outs or injuries come about.

GoHawks · 26/05/2016 at 13:46

Deledio, is this week going to be the best time to get him in, or do we think he will be cheaper after his rd13 bye?

    ThatDamnRascal · 26/05/2016 at 14:36

    Can you really trust his body holding up for the rest of the season???

      GoHawks · 26/05/2016 at 14:39

      Deledio has done the same thing the past 2 years, misses games at the start of the season, then strings games together for the balance of the season. When he comes back into a team, he is 100% injury free, I trust him, now that he has played a couple of games.

        Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 14:48

        Agreed.

        Harry · 26/05/2016 at 17:43

        Ditto. He's my final fwd and I'm watching his price every week and will pounce soon

Derek · 26/05/2016 at 13:52

was thinking i was going to get priddis this week.

i have NicNat & Blitz as my two rucks.

Another option is to trade Mills >> Goldy (via Blitz). this will put Blitz in my midfield, not sure if he is a keeper as a Mid?

Goldy $120k cheaper than his starting price, but Norf have a tough run of games. Can i keep Blitz at M8?

Any suggestions

    Jim · 26/05/2016 at 13:57

    Like the 2nd option.

    CJudd3Votes · 26/05/2016 at 14:03

    Blitz is handy but in a perfect world not a keeper at either position, hence this is an ideal time to get in Goldy with that move and maximise cash efficiency, and meanwhile Blitz is scoring well enough that you can have him on field in the mids and address other concerns first

      Derek · 26/05/2016 at 14:10

      Yeah. Was thinking Blitz can average 101 until he gets pushed out as last midfield upgrade, should do better than Menadue.

      Goldy $120k cheaper than starting price… Woooshca!

        The Ranger · 26/05/2016 at 14:49

        Nice move Derek!

        Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 14:50

        I think it's great move Derek. Nic Nat and Goldy is a set and forget combo and Blics would be fine as an M8, or as you say trade him out later if you really need.

        Dave · 26/05/2016 at 14:51

        I think its a good move through the year Goldstein should outscore priddis

          Derek · 26/05/2016 at 15:20

          i was going to get Goldy a couple of weeks back, but was worried he was going to get rested. he aint getting rested now.

        Dave · 26/05/2016 at 14:53

        Priddis will still be cheap next week, unless he scores really huge against GC

          Derek · 26/05/2016 at 15:19

          i have 3 place in my mids to fill and have Priddis, Selwood, Sloane, hanners & RGray on my watchlist. any of them will be good, if i miss priddis, i'll get RGray

            Derek · 26/05/2016 at 15:23

            but there is only one Goldy

            Dave · 26/05/2016 at 15:58

            Yeah you probably go gray next week, then possibly selwood the week following or the one after that. A guy Im intrigued by is sam mitchell who could be 450k within a couple weeks

    Derek · 26/05/2016 at 15:37

    after trades, team will look like:

    Shaw, Laird, Bartel, BSmith, McVeigh, Rich (Williams, Hartley)

    Dangerfield, Gaz, JPK, Blicavs, Rocky, Pendlebury, BenKen, JSmith (Gresham, Davis, McPherson)

    Goldy, NicNat (Wyatt)

    Dusty, Barlow, Wingard, Montagna, Kerridge, Petracca (McGovern, Menadue)

    19 trades left $40k

      clarea · 26/05/2016 at 16:14

      how many to full prem DEREK I cont 6 Smith Rich Benken Smith KEDGE Petracca .With little cash how are you going to do it and time factor.and it will require 12 trades. Been interesting watching your stratagies this year very good for all of us next year you have given me plenty of trade ideas keep up the good work champ you should be on the J R TEAMwith the guys

        Derek · 26/05/2016 at 17:22

        Thanks clarea, i made a couple of major mistakes at the start of this year that pretty much stuffed my rank & year. just playing for pride now and trying to reach an Ultra premo team to give a few people a fright in the top leagues i'm in.

        my next 4 upgrades will be, Rgray & Sloane in mids; Zorko & Lids in Forwards.

        with my current cash cows i'll need about $425k extra cash to do that over next 5 weeks, should be ok and that will take 10 trades (maybe 11 trades if i get rid of McPherson). Sloane & Lids will be round 14 upgrades and hopefully have the cash to do that.

        After that i have the luxury of upgrading BSmith to Rance & Blitz to Selwood. Will need at least 4 or 5 trades to do that. BSmith may stay as M9/D7.

        should be at Ultra premo by round 16, with 4 or 5 trades left.

        As well as BSmith i'd be hoping to have a decent F7 as well to loophole. Last year had Motlop was brilliant.

        the best laid plans of mice and men….

        Derek · 26/05/2016 at 17:27

        you might have heard me on the podcast, slipping in my Zac Dawson joke during the news daily segment 😉

          clarea · 26/05/2016 at 18:51

          missed it good you got your head in even this insight into your plans is valuable..most sc coaches are way off the mark with premium stuff even though each line has up to 12 choices see Derek I don't entirely agree with Selwood as a top 12 but very close

            Derek · 26/05/2016 at 19:21

            it is all about being patient and getting to Full premium as the cash allows. Can't have a proper Full ultra premium team until you get to $14mil. and you can't get to $14mil any faster than the cash cows let you. the luck plays a part in how well your non-premiums perform in the interim. mine were hopeless this year, were stars last year. oh well.

            Selwood not quite up to it this year. will prefer Hanners, will depend on price and my cash position when the last upgrade is needed.

            don't be too quick to write BSmith & Rich off. Have a look at the Crows & Lions home run, i'll be keeping Bsmith at D7 to loophole with Rich

Scotty · 26/05/2016 at 13:53

best forward to upgrade to this week???

    Jess_coach · 26/05/2016 at 14:36

    Who do you have and who suits your byes?

    Highest price/scoring potential – Zorko, Dahlhaus

    Good value – Delidio, Martin, Montagna

    Risks – JJK (westcoast), Rioli

      Scotty · 26/05/2016 at 15:04

      I feel as though zorko is necessary but i really like the sound of bringing in jjk this week putting the captain on him and watching him go off
      Has got a fairly easy run as well for the season

james · 26/05/2016 at 14:00

who are the best POD's in the fwd line

i'm sitting around 7000 so i might just play for league wins and finnish my squad with lots of PODs

Hoff, Walters, Howe anyone know any better ones

    Derek · 26/05/2016 at 14:11

    Cyril

    SWRoosterXXX · 26/05/2016 at 14:35

    Gunston is having a consistent year. Liking the Hawks draw in coming weeks as well

    GoHawks · 26/05/2016 at 14:44

    Wingard, over injuries, plays better when Gray is playing, some easier games coming up.

    Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 14:51

    Not sure about Cyril……misses games.

      Derek · 26/05/2016 at 15:31

      doesn't miss games like he used to. had a family illness a couple of weeks ago.

      amazing fact……… Rioli has never had more than 29 disposals in a game of AFL !

        Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 17:41

        He scores well from his touches that's for sure.

        His scoring has been a bit inconsistent, over his career he's missed a lot of games, seems too risky for me.

Boltons Blues · 26/05/2016 at 14:21

Rumours coming out of the Crows nest that Rory Laird will miss again this week

    Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 14:51

    ffs

James · 26/05/2016 at 14:30

G'Day Lads
Appreciate a little feedback on my team this week

Back
Shaw, Laird, Dea, Tippa, Adams, KK (Hartley, DBJ)
Mid
Danger, Hannerbery, Parker, Ablett, Libba, Wines, Kerridge, J Smith (McPherson, Gresham, Keays)
Ruck
Gawn, Nic Nat (Grimley)
Back
Dahl, Martin, Hall, Barlow, Wells, Zorko (Petracca, Menapoo)

I am going to trade DBJ to Willams which leaves me with $580k. I am keen on getting Priddis aswell but am unsure who to trade for him. Logic says McPherson but with the lack of midfield downgrades after the bye rounds and only going up $50k is he worth holding? Also stuck with gresham and menapoo who have done shit all this season.
Any thoughts greatly appreciated as usual boys, cheers

Chubby McChubby · 26/05/2016 at 14:32

DBJ to Williams will leave 219k in the bank. Get rid of Weitiering or hold?

    ThatDamnRascal · 26/05/2016 at 14:38

    If you still have him now he's a hold until after or around the byes. Dropped too much cash and will drop again

      Chubby McChubby · 26/05/2016 at 14:41

      Thanks. Is dalhaus a must have? Could go kerridge or benken to Roald Dahl

      Chubby McChubby · 26/05/2016 at 14:43

      or montagna

      Chubby McChubby · 26/05/2016 at 14:44

      or kennedy……..arrggh too many options.lol

Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 14:52

Great write up once again Barron cheers!

The Ranger · 26/05/2016 at 14:53

Love ya work Barron, thanks.
The Community needs to know…..did you end up running with Tippett in the ruck as you mentioned many moons ago?
And if so are you trading in Goldy this week and swinging Tippett forward or just going Tippett > Goldy?

    @BarronVonCrow · 26/05/2016 at 17:48

    Nope, I wimped out and just went with Goldy and Nic Nat. Would probably have worked out pretty well in the end if I did go for it

      Maestro · 26/05/2016 at 23:37

      Ah Barron, so close to glory. Goldie was only $552k last week. They would have renamed the Bruen manoeuvre the "VonCrow manoeuvre"

Chubby McChubby · 26/05/2016 at 14:58

Or kerridge to zorks

james · 26/05/2016 at 15:22

DEF: Shaw, Docherty, Laird, Enright, AMT, Byrne (Ruggles, Williams)
MID: Danger, Hanners, Ward, Ablett, Shiel, priddis, Zieball, Lewis (Hewett, Davis, Gresham)
RUCK: NicNat, Gawn (Lorensch)
FWD: Dusty, Hall, DeGoey, Kerridge, Benken, Petracca (Menadue, Wyatt)

Iv'e made 1 trade already and thats was dbj to williams but for my second one i am going to be offloading benken with the money left over i can afford any fwd but don't want Zorko cause i'm ranked 7000 and would like PODs so who to get

Riewoldt

Gunston

Deledio

Tippert

    Boltons Blues · 26/05/2016 at 15:42

    Can you upgrade menadue to any of those?
    if any it would be Lids, but you could easily hold off on him till after his r13 bye.
    BenKen/Kerridge are still scoring well (BenKen was 40 at 1/4 time on the weekend and dropped off) so i wouldnt be trading them just yet
    BUT if you must trade BenKen, id get Lids

      james · 26/05/2016 at 15:46

      nah bolts blues if i trade menaspud i can only get a boomer, walters or howe

Tommo09 · 26/05/2016 at 15:38

Need 2 or 3 upgrades for forwards
1-2 for mids
3 defenders

Who do you suggest?
I don't have many pods so they are useful for me

Premiums:
Def: Shaw, Laird, Docherty
Mid: Pendles, Danger, Hanners, Parker, Ablett, Priddis, Libba?
Fwd: Martin, Franklin, Barlow?, Hall?, Wells?

    Kev · 26/05/2016 at 17:36

    Have a look at the season averages so far for each position and go from there.

    Off the top of my head Buddy, Zorko, Deledio, Gray, Ward, Simmo, Rance are targets

Tommo09 · 26/05/2016 at 15:46

Bye Bye Menadue and DBJ
Hello Priddis and Williams

Saundo · 26/05/2016 at 15:48

I'm tossing up between Lids, Zorko, JPK or Gray? Any suggestions welcome !

    Jacob · 26/05/2016 at 17:53

    Have to go with lids or Zorko personally I feel gray will miss 2-3 weeks for the rest of the season through niggles. He can pump out much bigger scores than Zorko so really depends if you want a big scorer or consistency (Zorko scored once under 110 this season) good luck!

Tommo09 · 26/05/2016 at 15:53

Sorry guys
What is the SuperCoach break even formula?

    Kev · 26/05/2016 at 17:31

    Use footywire or tooserious

Gibbs · 26/05/2016 at 16:19

Should I trade Brown to Simpson/ Boydd or Ben Kennedy to Daulhaus

    Jacob · 26/05/2016 at 17:51

    Brown to Simpson

Ketut · 26/05/2016 at 16:35

Is it silly to trade Smith or Hewitt this week even though they have low break evens? Reason being I really want Priddis to complete my midfield and I think he will go very large this week, so don't want to miss the score and price rise. If not I could trade Kennedy to Zorko instead.

    Jacob · 26/05/2016 at 17:50

    Kennedy to Zorko hold on priddis another week. Zorko has scored once this year under 110 so expect a big score.

Ketut · 26/05/2016 at 16:39

Jesse Joyce is rumoured to make his debut this week. Another d/m rookie only 102k for those not sure about Williams.

    Derek · 26/05/2016 at 17:31

    nice info

    Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 17:36

    Could have good job security with the suns injury lost growing by the minute.

    Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 17:37

    That saying they have a lot of players coming back in 1-2 weeks time.

    Boltons Blues · 26/05/2016 at 17:44

    i traded him at the start to Robbie Gray because i didnt think he'd get a game, of course hes getting a game

      Derek · 26/05/2016 at 18:43

      he made the extended bench!

James · 26/05/2016 at 16:51

Guys zaharakis (BE of 150+) to lachie neale or priddis?

    Jim · 26/05/2016 at 17:20

    why trade Zaha?

      Jim · 26/05/2016 at 17:24

      Do you have Ablett to?

        James · 26/05/2016 at 19:41

        Yeah I have a let and I'm keeping him. Zaharakis just hasn't performed well in the past few weeks and his BE is over 150 as I said before. Would neale or priddis be a better option?

Anth · 26/05/2016 at 17:13

Oliver out with a thigh injury! I was going to trade him next week, but will get rid of him this week instead (seeing as though it could people a couple of weeks till he's back)

Jacob · 26/05/2016 at 17:43

Hi community,
Thoughts on Byrne jones downgrade to Williamson then kolodjanij upgrade to Bartel or Boyd.

    Steeeve · 26/05/2016 at 21:50

    Hold KK. Why trade him at his lowest price?

marcus · 26/05/2016 at 18:14

dusty or dahlhaus or deledio for a POD

Chubby McChubby · 26/05/2016 at 18:26

Hi Community. Have 17 trades with 219k in the sky rocket. One trade left this week. Thnking BenKen to Dahlhaus or Montagna or Kerridge to Zorko. Or dont trade at all or suggestions on something else?
Def – Shaw Docherty Simpson B. Smith Weitering B. Williams (M.Brown, Hartley)
Mid – Dangerfield, Pendlebury Shiel Zaharakis Liberatore T. Adams Hewett J. Smith (Ablett, Macpherson, Gresham)
Rucks – Goldstein Gawn (Cox)
Forwards – Martin Merrett Kerridge Kennedy McDonald-Tipungwuti Petracca (Wells,Hall)

Thanks

    Chubby McChubby · 26/05/2016 at 18:43

    I might have to reverse the DBJ to Williams trade now.lol

Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 18:27

Barlow IN!

Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 18:28

WELLS IN too hallelujah!

Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 18:29

Suckling In
Adams In

Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 18:34

I'm worried about Williams now.

Doggies extended bench.

1 Matthew Suckling
3 Mitch Wallis
27 Will Minson
20 Josh Dunkley
34 Bailey Williams
35 Caleb Daniel
44 Jed Adcock

Derek · 26/05/2016 at 18:34

Menadue got the chop, i was just starting to like him

Derek · 26/05/2016 at 18:36

No Laird or Rocky

Nicholas · 26/05/2016 at 18:37

Laird not back…

Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 18:39

Byrne-Jones playing

    Jim · 26/05/2016 at 18:43

    Yeah little surprised by that? Makes things more of a conundrum?

      Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 19:06

      Nah not really, he's done anyway I reckon with a BE of 105, In comes Priddis via DPPs

Derek · 26/05/2016 at 18:41

look for plan B i think

    Don't Blush Baby' · 26/05/2016 at 18:56

    Was hoping Dunkley might get a start, still have him and on the bubble

      Jess_coach · 26/05/2016 at 19:20

      Also concerned about this..Plan B get collins tommorrow after teams?

        Ketut · 26/05/2016 at 19:29

        Plan B sounds better than Plan A even if he is named I'm thinking. Collins has good JS I think wth Pearce and Johnson both out long term.

        Maestro · 26/05/2016 at 19:31

        I don't like it. I don't think he'll play. Plan B Might sit tight this week with the byes approaching.

        Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 19:44

        Or even Joyce from GCS.

        190cm 90kg kid. barely 19 years old though.

        He's only 100k though and has DEF/MID status.

        Not sure if I'll grab any rookie this week.

    The Ranger · 26/05/2016 at 19:46

    Plan B involves not trading out Menadue. I can't fully express in words how disappointing that is.

Jim · 26/05/2016 at 18:42

Hmmm DBJ named….no really good def rookies on the bubble chance Joyce?

    Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 19:08

    Bloody risky not being on the bubble, there are a lot of injuries at gold coast but many due back shortly.

    I wouldn't downgrade to anyone in the backline this week, but I'm lucky enough to have plenty of dual position players to move around so I can trade out DBJ for Priddis.

      Jim · 26/05/2016 at 19:27

      Yeah, I know but DJB wont make his BE. Totally agree with you! Wait and see if Williams get named? But if he doesn't might have to gamble on Williams or Joyce? DBJ is going to lose money with a BE of 103.

        Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 19:36

        Might have to take the gamble on Joyce if Williams isn't named.

          Jim · 26/05/2016 at 19:50

          yup?

Cattery 2.0 · 26/05/2016 at 18:55

Now that menadue is out and DBJ still playing is Menadue to Hopper the better choice?

    Ketut · 26/05/2016 at 19:32

    Only if you're facing a donut. DBJ needs to be trading more so now I think because he will leak money, Menadue won't.

Roger · 26/05/2016 at 18:57

Well, seeing how laird is out again. Brand is dropped and Williams is on the extended bench (most likely won't play)
I had to make a tough decision to trade kerridge to hopper and upgrade Byrne jones (I know his playing but high BE) to Docherty.
Leaves me with 160k.
I was against the hopper trade because of his price but I'd looking at it now, hopper is more reliable and has s better JS then Williams.

    Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 19:10

    Could pull the trigger on Mathieson one week early if confident in him.

Dylan · 26/05/2016 at 19:01

Struggling to make a decision on whether I should trade or not, please give me some advice

DEF: Shaw, Simpson, Bartel, McDonald-Tipungwuti, Byrne Jones, Ruggles (Laird, Brand)
MID: Parker, Dangerfield, Pendles, Ward, Selwood, Ablett, Libba, Smith (Keays, Davis, Dunkley)
RUC: Goldstein, Naitanui (Chol)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Wells, Hall, Kerridge, Kennedy, Petracca (Papley, Menadue)

$220,300 in the bank, 16 trades left including 2 this round

    Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 21:40

    Menadue has been dropped, Byrne Jones looking at losing cash with a 105 BE.

    Could possibly wait on the trades, although first gamer Sam Collins could be one to take a risk on in the backline for a downgrade, if you want to upgrade menadue to a premo.

    Collins comes in for Alex Pearce who is injured for the season.

    Another option would be Joyce from GCS, probably lower JS than Collins, and again a first gamer.

    Has a lower price of just 100k, MID/DEF eligibility.

Tommo · 26/05/2016 at 19:03

Which 2 to play on field out of Wells, Kerridge, De Goey. Not 100% sure about Wells as he is just coming back from injury.

Tommy · 26/05/2016 at 19:04

Disappointed Brand got dropped, thought he would stay in the side for at least a few more week. Will he come back soon?

    Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 19:31

    I think Brand will come back in Spanger only played 4 games last year he comes into the side every now and then for certain match ups I think.

    Maybe resting Brand for a game too.

Rick · 26/05/2016 at 19:10

Hi community, trading DBJ to B. Williams gives me 520k to get in a FWD for M. Brown. Only viable options are Buddy, JJK or Zerret. Should i look to bring in one of these 3 or do different trades, perhaps look at bringing in hopper??

Any help would be much appreciated, Thanks

    Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 19:16

    I wouldn't be locking in the williams trade, at least not until he is guaranteed a spot this week.

    His JS is shaky doggies have a lot of depth and a lot players back this week.

    Ketut · 26/05/2016 at 19:37

    All 3 FWDs you mentioned would be wonderful additions to any side, I like JJK best because he has gone huge against bad teams and ok against good teams and WEst Coast have a better draw from here on.

It's coming to end FY, Barron you definitely deserve a good pay rise with such quality work! Does stringer to D Martin count as sideways? Passionate dogs fan hoping stringer would break out.

    Ketut · 26/05/2016 at 19:41

    Stringer has broken out, just not in a SC sense. It's not sideways, however I'm sure you have a guy in your 22 averaging less than Stringer so I'd be fixing that first. Martins not underpriced, so you can afford to wait a few weeks, if he goes up it will only be marginally.

      Pherso · 26/05/2016 at 19:57

      Good point, might hold, good luck pal

Aussie Might · 26/05/2016 at 19:26

Thoughts on Dougal Howard as a downgrade option??
On the bubble this week

    Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 19:47

    Not a fan of him but it might suit your structure. They're only bringing him in because gawn will monster them otherwise.

    Wait……….he will still monster them!

    Danners · 26/05/2016 at 20:53

    Ok downgrade option, JS not great though. Only for bench cover

Boltons blues · 26/05/2016 at 19:28

ive go no choice, I'm risking it for the biscuit per day
Collins (freo) or Collins

    Boltons blues · 26/05/2016 at 19:28

    Williams lol

    Mac · 26/05/2016 at 19:34

    Maybe Collins, better JS at Freo?

      Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 19:46

      Freo and job security in the same sentence?

      Barlow and Tucker would disagree!

      But on a serious note I'd look at the injuries, and returning players to the side before locking him in.

        Mac · 26/05/2016 at 19:51

        Well with Pearce going down for the season they need another key defender don't they? Johnson is still also out so I'd say they need him to play.

          Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 20:04

          Yep wasn't up to date on their injuries, he does look promising.

          22 year old, 192cm, 90kg should take that key defender position for the rest of the season.

          I've been a little ignorant of what's going on at Freo I must admit, after having Barlow on my bench and seeing Tucker dumped after two.

james · 26/05/2016 at 19:39

DEF: Shaw, Docherty, Laird, Enright, AMT, Byrne (Ruggles, Williams)
MID: Danger, Hanners, Ward, Ablett, Shiel, priddis, Zieball, Lewis (Hewett, Davis, Gresham)
RUCK: NicNat, Gawn (Lorensch)
FWD: Dusty, Hall, DeGoey, Kerridge, Benken, Petracca (Menadue, Wyatt)

i am in trouble and have no idea what i should do this week i have 14 trades and 41k left

DBJ and Menadue are really bothering me is it worth doing DBJ to Collins and then Menadue either to Howard or upgrade to boomer

do i need to trade this week

any input will be helpful

    Wills Hunters · 26/05/2016 at 20:26

    Personally I'd hold off on trading. You've only got 14 trades left. You're team looks strong. You need to fix your backline. But I personally wouldn't Bring in b.williams. So I believe there isn't anyone in the backline worth trading down too

@Matr1x23 · 26/05/2016 at 19:41

Hey everyone, I hope all is well. How cold is it tonight! Anyways, I'm in need of a little help and I was wondering if the community could give me some.

I've got 19 trades left and $255.4 in cash. I do have a few injuries left but you'll see that now as I display my team. I'm really unsure as to what to do next so any help would be appreciated.

Defence: shaw, Dea, McDonald-tip, Adams, Byrne-jones, Byrne (laird, Hartley)

Midfield: Dangerfield, Hannebery, Parker, Cripps, gray, Liberatore, Kennedy, Petracca (Rockliff, Davis, macpherson)

Rucks: Gawn, Nic Nat (Grimley)

Forwards: Zorko, Martin, Barlow, hall, wells, Kerridge (Papley, cox)

Thanks heaps guys

    Kev · 26/05/2016 at 22:10

    It's pretty obvious what line you need to invest in mate

      @Matr1x23 · 26/05/2016 at 22:14

      Don't they say defence is the last line you should invest in?

    Leeds17 · 27/05/2016 at 05:51

    If you want Priddis grab him, If you want Rance grab him, if you want Deledio grab him,you've got plenty of option mate have a look at your byes see what suits regarding players that have bottomed out.

Tomas · 26/05/2016 at 19:47

Bloody Hell, not looking like Williams will play now, being on a strong doggies extended bench. Now im not sure about downgrading him anymore. Would love some opinions about what i should do with my team. I have 222k and 20 trades left.

Shaw, Gibbo, Laird, Tippa, DBJ, Hartley (Brand, Mckenzie)

Pendles, Ward, Sidebum, Jelwood, Ablett, Libba, BKennedy, Smith, (Davis, Keays, Gresham)

Goldy, Martin (Wyatt)

Dusty, Buddy, Merrett, Greene, Wells, De Goey, (Kerridge, Petracca)

I am new to supercoach so would love your opinions. Thanks!

    Ketut · 26/05/2016 at 20:23

    Ok Tomas no expert but I'll do my best. Your team is a bit lopsided in that your forward line is too good and your backline not good enough, here's what I suggest….
    Who is McKenzie? West Coast or St.Kilda? Is he playing? If so switch with Laird because he's not. DBJ must go, I'd trade him for Rance and that's it. Then I'd swap Kerridge for Kennedy because you want him scoring points.
    When some FWD rookies present themselves (maybe Paine next week) I'd look at downgrading De Goey so you can start to upgrade your midfield, even if it means starting Petracca in the 22. For example, I'll give you an idea what you can do next week: De Goey out, Paine in. Smith out, Gray/Priddis in.

      Tomas · 26/05/2016 at 20:47

      Thanks for your help mate! Much appreciated. It is Trent Mckenzie from Gold Coast, who is currently out injured at the moment. You reckon i should bring Rance in this week, and bring in Simpson around they byes? I wanted to bring Simpson in but was 10k short in the end.

        Ketut · 26/05/2016 at 21:30

        Yes I would quite happily take Rance now if you can't afford Simpson as I think they will both average around 100. McKenzie out means you're still 1 down, hmmm….I reckon I'd also downgrade him to a rookie. Collins from Freo would be your best bet. T.McKenzie is sort of in no mans land because he is not averaging enough to be a top10 defender and it won't change unless KK and Malceski were to get injured. Also if you were to downgrade him it means you have enough to get Simpson (if you really want him over Rance). Your teams not too bad at all though.

          Tomas · 26/05/2016 at 22:12

          Thanks mate! Love ya work!

pete · 26/05/2016 at 19:50

Do people think that Howe is the real deal, pretty sure i read that bucks said that Howe will stay in this half back role

    Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 19:57

    Yeah I've read that, but at 450k it's not like he's a bargain. Not convinced but he's worth a shot if you have plenty of trades.

    Tommo · 26/05/2016 at 20:48

    I would go for him at 400k, but 450k is too expensive, especially as he has proven to be inconsistent this year.

    Hubba · 26/05/2016 at 22:37

    When Marley Williams, langdon and Goldsack come back to the team he'll go back to the forward flank and be back down to 12 possessions and 1 goal… 65 pts..

      Leeds17 · 27/05/2016 at 05:41

      That's my worry I actually think if he stays in the role he's been in the last 3 weeks he would be. 90+ averager for a season but no confidence he'll be in that spot for the rest of the season

Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 19:52

Some pros to getting Joyce in your team (even if he gets dropped)

100k
MID/DEF
Lots of Sunday games for looping.

GCS are decimated with injury so could return even if dropped?

Liking him more than Williams now

    Leeds17 · 26/05/2016 at 21:10

    Yep I'm interested, if you liked Williams who would quickly become a donut any way might as well go for the cheaper bloke, only worry for me is that he'd have to be on field this week with Laird still not back.

      Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 21:32

      Yeah that's tough, I also have Laird but have plenty of back up with AMT, Adams, Byrne and Hartley to fill 3 spots and an emergency.

Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 19:54

That saying I wouldn't lock him in this week preferably, unless you really want to ditch DBJ before the bleeding, and Joyce makes it into the final squad.

    Wills Hunters · 26/05/2016 at 20:35

    Sounds like you're talking yourself into it. I also need to generate cash I've got weitering dbj down back m.adams and benken up forward. Only 170k in the bank. Can't afford rance or Zorko. And no relevant downgrade targets fwd or back. So I'm thinking I'd go Joyce myself

      Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 21:31

      I am talking myself into it, although others have alerted me to the situation in the freo backline with Alex Pearce out for the season, Sam Collins the 22 year old comes into the team this week.

The Mountain · 26/05/2016 at 20:25

If DBJ was to hit is BE what would he be look in at the following week with his BE?

    Jim · 26/05/2016 at 20:46

    Not much but asking 103 is a lot for someone who is injured and still playing?

      Jim · 26/05/2016 at 20:51

      He will make 2,700 if he meets his BE

      Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 21:29

      He's not injured or he wouldn't be playing.

Corvus · 26/05/2016 at 20:39

Petracca or Kerridge on field this week? I have room for one just one –

Thoughts please community……

    Jim · 26/05/2016 at 20:45

    Loop hole doesn't kerridge play Sunday? If you can?

      Tommo · 27/05/2016 at 07:09

      You can't loophole a playing player?

        Harley · 27/05/2016 at 08:32

        I'm having the same dilemma. Decided to put petracca on field mainly due to him playing port and kerridge Geelong. Tough call though

Clarky · 26/05/2016 at 20:52

Looks like i may have to take a doughnut now, not happy! I have Laird, T Mckenzie and Brand all on the pine. 230k and 20 trades. Was intending to go Mckenzie down, DBJ up, but that idea was shot down when i see Williams now unlikely to play. What should i do?

One Touch Wonder · 26/05/2016 at 20:55

I'm so glad to see Hall back this week, can't wait to hear all the howling from those who Havnt traded him out yet. Suns play WCE in Perth. They will get smashed. Next week Swans, Then Tigers and after the bye they have the Hawks. Last chance to trade him before losing a heap of cash. 3 weeks ago I traded him to Zorko SHARK MOVE.

    Jim · 26/05/2016 at 21:03

    Don't flatter yourself….wasn't a shark move! Hall can bounce back and if he doesn't oh well. Have to take chances and he's made a lot of cash easily replaceable.

    One Touch Wonder · 26/05/2016 at 21:06

    And Wells is back. I expect most people did they SHARK MOVE last week and dumped him for Montagna. Kangas play Swans in SinCity, then Tigers, Cats, Hawks and Crows. Wells will be back to his starting price soon, that's if he doesn't get injured again. Last chance.

      Frank Walker · 26/05/2016 at 21:12

      wow you have so many shark moves im going to call you greg norman. whats your overall rank mr shark?

      Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 21:28

      Wells hasn't lost any money, only gained, still has a BE of 70 so people can trade him out when it's optimal, instead of possibly ditching a high performing player prematurely.

      You were probably right about Hall, but hey he only cost 425k and moving him on seems a waste of a trade.

      You also fail to mention that after their tough games coming up, they have the saints and Brisbane both at Metricon.

        Cam_H · 27/05/2016 at 01:36

        Not sure if One Touch Wonder is or isn't trolling, but isn't trading in Zorko by their reasoning doomed to failure because Brisbane is going to be smashed most weeks this year?

Steve · 26/05/2016 at 21:00

Not sure if i should bring in Bailey Williams, his job security is questionable.

Thoughts community, on what i should do?

    Jim · 26/05/2016 at 21:04

    If he doesn't get named I'm passing on him.

    Northernsoul74 · 27/05/2016 at 10:02

    Wait until Friday arvo to see if named.

Tommo09 · 26/05/2016 at 21:02

Def: Shaw, Laird, Docherty, Tippa, DBJ, Brown (Adams, Byrne)
Mid: Danger, GAJ, Parker, Pendles, Hannebery, Libba, Smith, Petracca (Keays, Gresham, MacPherson
Ruc: Goldy, NicNat (Grimley)
Fwd: Martin, Franklin, Barlow, Hall, Wells, Kerridge (Kennedy, Menadue)

Thinking Menadue and DBJ to Priddis and Williams
That trade is now looking a little shaky
$345k and 19 trades left
Scored 2412 last weekend and am ranked 2500
Thoughts??

    Hawks · 27/05/2016 at 00:24

    I'd be looking to upgrade in defence.

    Maybe DBJ to Rance or Simpson and Menadue to Hopper.

      Tommo09 · 27/05/2016 at 07:48

      Want Priidis

Leeds17 · 26/05/2016 at 21:19

No real way to get him in my team maybe just one for the future but Billy Stretch has been really impressive the last couple weeks, finding the ball and great disposal efficiency.

    The Ranger · 26/05/2016 at 21:51

    Getting it done isn't he Leeds? Had a look at him this week too but can't bring him in at that price.

azza · 26/05/2016 at 21:26

hey guys need some help with trades for this week
Def: Shaw,rance,kade,laird.amt,dbj ( hartley,ruggles)
Mid: danger,hannerz,parker,gaz,shiel,liberatore,wells, jmsith (hewett,davis,macpherson)
Fwd: zorko,dusty,barlow,gunston,hall,kerridge (bken,petracca)

should i go dbj – williams and bken -priddis
or davis – williams and dbj – def premo (to cover for laird)

    Danners · 26/05/2016 at 21:36

    MacPherson to Williams and DBJ to Def premo

      azza · 26/05/2016 at 21:44

      only have 30k prior to these trades,
      so will have to go for a very cheap defender haha

        Don't Blush Baby' · 26/05/2016 at 21:47

        Williams is not guaranteed to start,2nd last game of the round ,beware

    Jim · 26/05/2016 at 21:38

    Why would you trade BenKen?

      azza · 26/05/2016 at 21:49

      i can either trade hewett or bken for priddis
      but hewett has a breakeven of 20?

John · 26/05/2016 at 21:27

Guys who are some other good downgrade options for DBJ other than Williams?

    Jim · 26/05/2016 at 21:39

    None

    Southern S · 26/05/2016 at 21:43

    1st gamers with huge risk associated.

    Sam Collins Freo (comes in for Alex pearce who is injured for the season)

    Jesse Joyce GCS (only 100k, DEF/MID swing)

      Jim · 26/05/2016 at 21:46

      You have to wait on Joyce and Collins til 3 games. Cant bring them in early? IMO

        John · 27/05/2016 at 16:54

        Yeah but Williams job security isn't good.

Tippa · 26/05/2016 at 21:37

Thoughts on Josh Kennedy

    Jim · 26/05/2016 at 21:41

    Its tough? Ive considered? But he goes large or nothing! Not consistent? But I wanna get him in my fwd line as cheap as he is.

    Steeeve · 26/05/2016 at 21:57

    Not sure which one you mean but both should be solid options, probably not on the top 10 forwards (JJK) or mids (JPK).

    Kev · 26/05/2016 at 22:03

    Assuming you mean JJK, for a similar price Buddy and Merrett have shown more consistency

Ted · 26/05/2016 at 21:50

Wow Southern S must have bought a Wayno fly trap for big big mouth? Been pretty quiet!

    Southern S · 27/05/2016 at 10:39

    Wow that chip on your shoulder must be massive!

Jack Blucher · 26/05/2016 at 21:55

Have 1 spot in my fwds ben Ken or Petracca. Who shoukd i start? I feel like Petracca is playing better than Kennedy atm. But want your thoughts people?

    Don't Blush Baby' · 26/05/2016 at 21:58

    The Bull – Petracca

    Jim · 26/05/2016 at 22:07

    Petracca thats who I'm Going with, have BenKen on bench E

The Ranger · 26/05/2016 at 22:03

Anyone know anything about Yeo's quad injury?
How long will he be out?

    Tommy · 27/05/2016 at 12:51

    I'm in the same boat Ranger, can't find anything anywhere.
    Need that info cos if he is out for more than 2 weeks, I will upgrade to Docherty. If not, sideways Tucker to Collins for cover.
    Annoying.

      The Ranger · 27/05/2016 at 13:03

      Yeah he's probably my worst starting pick of the year, he just hasn't played anywhere near his potential.
      He's lost 57K so i'm not trading him unless he's out for a bloody long time.

    MY TWO CENTS · 27/05/2016 at 13:19

    2-3 with a quad strain.

Confuzzled · 26/05/2016 at 22:20

So my conundrum this week is doing my head in to say the least

Team as it stands

Shaw simpson laird hurn dbj adams Byrne Hartley
Danger pendles ablett ward cripps libba kerridge smith Hewett d mac dunkley
Goldy Martin loerch
Dusty Barlow hall wells montagna robbo ben Ken petracca

Dbj will become Williams, leaving me with 18 trades and 257k, considering trading d mac to cheap fwd mid swinger so I can get petracca on field?? Bit stick atm
What to do community

Sean · 26/05/2016 at 22:23

Libba to priddis for only 40k???

    Youngster · 27/05/2016 at 08:17

    Hmmm, nah. Surely you have more pressing issues than upgrading Libba??

poloko48 · 26/05/2016 at 22:33

2 upgrades this week –

1.DBJ OUT Zorko IN via DPP,
2. MacPherson OUT Danger IN

Leaves me with 15 trades, $118.3K in the bank and the following team:

DEF: Heater, Bartel (MID), AMT (FWD), Hartley, Wagner, Ruggles (Laird, Brand)
MID: Danger, Hanners, Parker, Ward, Jelwood, Libba, Wines, Priddis (JSmith, Davis, Keays)
RUC: Goldy, Gawn (MKing (FWD))
FWD: Zorks (MID), Buddy, Tippett (RUC), Hall (MID), Wells (MID), Petracca (MID) (Kerridge (MID), DRioli)

Thoughts? Happy I'm full premo MID on field, just need 3 premo DEF + 1 premo FWD and I'm full premo on field.

    Leeds17 · 27/05/2016 at 05:46

    Hmm not a bad position still need 4 premos though & that's not including Wells & Libba, the latt is looking less likely to be a real premo especially when you've got to carry Wines' poor score as well,

    Keep an eye out for a mid forward for you mid bench too

    Derek · 27/05/2016 at 10:02

    McPherson to Danger…. nomination for the trade of the year!

      Southern S · 27/05/2016 at 10:17

      That should be a fair change in points week to week!

Kevin Skywalker · 26/05/2016 at 22:34

For what it's worth being a Doggie supporter, I feel Bailey Williams holds his spot over Adcock. Bevo would want get games into Williams over Adcock. Anyway I hope that's the cas as I got him in last week to avoid a donut

    The Ranger · 26/05/2016 at 23:00

    Looks like it's prob between those two providing Suckling is deemed fit.
    I hope you're right mate.

Steeeve · 26/05/2016 at 22:46

Hopper named in the guts. Still tempting me, especially to get rid of MacPherson.

    SWRoosterXXX · 27/05/2016 at 09:43

    You do realise where people are named in the paper is irrelevant to what their role maybe on game day.

poloko48 · 26/05/2016 at 23:00

Current bye structure based on who's playing this week:

R13 – 21 capable on field (6 DEF, 8 MID, 2 RUC, 5 FWD)
R14 – 15 capable on field (3 DEF, 6 MID, 1 RUC, 5 FWD)
R15 – 17 capable on field (3 DEF, 7 MID, 1 RUC, 6 FWD)

How is everyone else looking bye wise at the moment?

Johnny · 26/05/2016 at 23:22

Williams will play, words of the coach.

    Blueth · 27/05/2016 at 11:08

    adcock definitely dropped…terrible last week

Westy · 26/05/2016 at 23:38

Papley out Greene in
M Crouch out Hopper in

Satisfactory?

    Tommo · 27/05/2016 at 07:12

    Despite the fact that i have had Greene since the start, i wouldnt be trading him in, very up and down for his price.

min0008 · 27/05/2016 at 00:21

DBJ for Williams and Martin to Goldstein

MzD · 27/05/2016 at 02:40

I was getting in SImpson this week but have Docherty already, its making me uncomfortable because they play similar role and all else. Looking to trade Houli to Rance now. Opinions please been giving me headache.

    Hawks · 27/05/2016 at 07:28

    No issue having Simpson & Docherty, they can both score without taking points from each other. Rance is also a good option. They have the same bye round, so it's just a personal choice.

    For me Rance has been consistent for longer, so I have him, but Docherty can score bigger, and has been consistent under Bolten this year.

      Derek · 27/05/2016 at 08:52

      I'd go Rance. I'm getting him round 14 after his bye.

    Hoot · 27/05/2016 at 09:12

    Should have gotten rid of Houli ages ago

      Marco_Polo94 · 27/05/2016 at 09:47

      You never know what people's priorities are though.

    Sana · 27/05/2016 at 09:20

    At their current rate you'll want all these blokes. If you see them keeping it up, choose the most cash/trade efficient way of picking them up. Maybe leave one til after Rd 13

      Derek · 27/05/2016 at 09:56

      i do respect what Higgo says, he is worried about carlton continuing their good form, i'm staying away from both

        Southern S · 27/05/2016 at 10:16

        I respect Higgo's advice too, but I'm not sure because Simpson scores well every year even with Carlton doing terribly in the last couple of seasons, and Docherty has scored well in their losses this year.

        Time will tell, those two are bloody expensive right now that is for sure.

          Derek · 27/05/2016 at 12:02

          too expensive, in a year when cash is hard to come by

            Youngster · 27/05/2016 at 13:17

            Yep, Docherty has rocketted up, surely these blokes will come down in price by $50k or so, making it much easier to get them in. Still, in the meantime you have to forgo the points they score. It's a tough call, personally, I'm waiting until they have a price dip.

Shags · 27/05/2016 at 06:31

Does anyone have an idea when Rocky will be back.

    Youngster · 27/05/2016 at 07:47

    Nup but I'm eager to find out as I have him too. I can afford to hold him as I have Kerridge doing a nice job covering him at M8. Hopefully he'll be back soon and get back to his best and reward us for holding him. Surely he's back before the byes.

      Derek · 27/05/2016 at 08:51

      I think he was close this week. Hopefully next week

Banga · 27/05/2016 at 07:51

What should i do guys. Lets say Williams doesn't play, should i either upgrade DBJ to Rance, but that means i have to take a doughnut, or downgrade Mckenzie to Collins, and go DBJ to Simpson. That option is risky because Collins may not get to 3 games? Thoughts community?

Mike · 27/05/2016 at 07:58

Who should I loophole Parker or Gawn?

    Hoot · 27/05/2016 at 09:13

    Gawn

    Southern S · 27/05/2016 at 10:37

    Going Gawn V > Danger C

    Even though Danger burnt me last week………..

Harley · 27/05/2016 at 08:35

I think the crows are foxing! I reckon laird and matty crouch will end up playing. Look out for last minute changes

    Tommo · 27/05/2016 at 08:56

    Matt Crouch may play, he is on emergencies. If they bring Laird in, they will receive a fine.

    Southern S · 27/05/2016 at 10:13

    Nah, Matt and Brad Crouch played a bitr poorly in the game vs game vs Geelong 35% (Brad) and 44% DE (Matt).

    I think Matt was playing sore? Not sure what happened to Brad. Anyway they have their best performing squad in at the moment.

      Harley · 27/05/2016 at 10:31

      Oh really! I wasn't aware of the fine issue. Guess laird is not playing then.

      Yeah your right southern S. Brad is way out of form, needs at least a month in the 2's to find the confidence in his body. I'm a crows supporter and I just can't see how van berlo holds his spot. Against GWS we need pace and players who take the game on and he just doesn't have either.

        Southern S · 27/05/2016 at 10:35

        You're right about Van Berlo, not sure maybe they have a certain match up in mind for him.

Tim · 27/05/2016 at 08:58

Was gonna hold trades this week but now thinking Sauce Jacobs to Goldy? Have 20 trades left. Any thoughts welcomed.

    Hoot · 27/05/2016 at 09:11

    go for it… Goldy GUN

    Derek · 27/05/2016 at 09:23

    Before you decide, Have a look at Crows games over next 6 weeks and compare to Norfs next 6. Big difference starting tonight.

    Having said that, you won't get Goldy any cheaper.

Breen · 27/05/2016 at 09:07

Get in Matty Boydd or Simpson?

    GoHawks · 27/05/2016 at 10:06

    Simpson, Boyds role will change again when the Bulldogs injured defenders come back in.

      Jim · 27/05/2016 at 10:21

      Simpson

AverageAdsy · 27/05/2016 at 09:10

M.brown & DBJ out
Collins (Freo) & docherty in

What do you think fellas

    Jim · 27/05/2016 at 09:25

    Think you should wait on Collins til he's on the bubble.

      AverageAdsy · 27/05/2016 at 09:36

      Ive been trying to tell myself this all morning! Haha

      But… only other dg option this week would be williams and im not sold on his job security! Freo now have 2 kpds on the long term injury list.
      Also williams doesnt go in well with the byes for me and collins does.

      But getting someone before they have even played a game is definitely a risk. Im currently ranked 294 so not sure if its a risk i should take

        Jim · 27/05/2016 at 09:58

        Well you can still get collins in before the byes he will bubble before that

          AverageAdsy · 27/05/2016 at 10:07

          This is true! Youve convinced me! Thanks mate

    Boltons Blues · 27/05/2016 at 10:01

    im pulling the trigger on collins, i think DBJ is shot and i dont want to lose that money rapidly

    Southern S · 27/05/2016 at 10:32

    Not sure about the Docherty trade this week 500k is a lot of cash.

Saundo · 27/05/2016 at 09:19

What do people think about DBJ to Rampe and Weitering to Burgoyne?

    Jim · 27/05/2016 at 10:00

    Not sure that Rampe is a keeper. I considered but he's not a premo so I'm staying away. I'm waiting for laird to drop in price when he comes back in. he has a high BE of 117

    Southern S · 27/05/2016 at 10:09

    Rampe is slightly interesting, Burgoyne is nowhere near premo this year.

    Kevin Skywalker · 27/05/2016 at 10:32

    Wish I'd gone Rampe over Birchall at the start of the season purely because they were similar price and Rampe has kept his value while Birchall has dropped plenty. If you can't afford higher priced def Rampe is okay but I'd be looking for value elsewhere. Same with Burgoyne

Marco_Polo94 · 27/05/2016 at 09:58

Been away for a bit with uni but finally have some time to focus on super coach. I am in an absolute conundrum community and am in need of some guidance. Here's a look at my team:

DEF: Shaw, Bartel, Smith, Adams, DBJ, AMT (Brown, Houli)
MID: Selwood, Pendles, Danger, GAJ, Parker, Gray, Lib, Montagna (Smith, keays, macphuffle)
RUCK: Nic Nat, Gawn (Grimley)
FWD: J. Riewoldt, Hall, Wells, Kerridge, Petracca, Kennedy (Cox, Lyons)

Have about $180k in the bank atm. While it has been annoying keeping houli the last couple of weeks I have just had too many other priorities that needed addressing. In saying that, he hasn't been losing any cash and this is the reason I haven't traded yet. Looking at a few options:

1) Houli to Rance, Macpherson to Hopper. This gives me my premium back in DEF as well as a good mid rookie who would stay on as M9, I also enjoy his R15 bye.
2) Houli to Rance and hold the second trade
3) Macpherson to Williams, DBJ to Rance. I love the look of this trade. I get an extra premium. I remove DBJ before he drops value. And Williams gives me a wonderful DPP. However JS is looking shaky at best. If he's named tonight he's locked in I reckon.
4) DBJ to McVeigh, Macpherson to Hopper.

Would love to know everyone's thoughts.

    Southern S · 27/05/2016 at 10:31

    I don't think getting any rookies this week is a good idea, some are being forced into it by having a donut if they don't trade but most should hold.

    clarea · 27/05/2016 at 10:33

    what does the 94 represent and 1 without hesitation williams and McVeigh dodgy

      Derek · 27/05/2016 at 11:59

      i assume they were born in 1994.

    Derek · 27/05/2016 at 11:25

    option 1 stands out for me.

    You get rid of Houli and McPherson.

    Alot of people will hold onto McPherson because they can't afford to get rid of him, therefore taking up a valuable place on the cash generating bench and giving no cover during the byes. Hopper will do both, make cash and give cover for the byes.

      Marco_Polo94 · 27/05/2016 at 11:32

      I agree I think it is the most reasonable option of the lot. The others have more risk involved

Tommy · 27/05/2016 at 10:27

I might be forced to pull the trigger and bring in Collins before he has even played this week, can't see Williams playing and with Brand omitted, i will be taking the doughnut.
Option 1: DBJ to Rance (will take a zero in defense with Laird. T Mckenzie and Brand all on the pine.)
Option 2: T Mckenzie to Collins, DBJ to Simmo (Will have a full team.)

Thoughts?

    I N Pieman · 27/05/2016 at 11:40

    TMcKenz back in the next week or 2. I'd hold him. He's worth nothing anyway. Would be a handy D7 later

      Tommy · 27/05/2016 at 11:42

      So take the 0 then?

Kark · 27/05/2016 at 10:30

I need a FWD rookie, what are the options? Dougal Howard is playing his third game this week for port adelaide and his break even is -32. Average of around 50 from two games, is he viable? What other options are there? Cheers

    I N Pieman · 27/05/2016 at 10:37

    Really he is the only Fwd option. I need one as well. But your almost certainly trading into a future donut. His JS is terrible. I will cry if I trade him in

      Derek · 27/05/2016 at 11:28

      i agree. however the boy can play abit. has a great jump, maybe his third game will be a blinder and he holds his place. i wouldn't touch him though

        I N Pieman · 27/05/2016 at 11:35

        He's not even listed as starting Ruck. Will be in & out of the side at best

Blake · 27/05/2016 at 10:42

My team (without trades this week)

Shaw, Docherty, AMT, Leo, KK, DBJ (Adams, K.Collins)
Danger, Pendles, Parker, Zaharakis, Motlop, Libba, Wells, Smith (Oliver, Davis, Joyce)
Gawn, Z.Smith (Chol)
Martin, Hall, Kerridge, BenKen, Wingard, Petracca (Cox, Simpkin)

Gord29 · 27/05/2016 at 10:48

If Williams doesn't make the squad what are people doing with Byrne jones? Thinking down to Collins or Joyce but neither have played a game yet

    Grahame Lebroy · 27/05/2016 at 10:55

    I am going against the wind and will hold onto him for now. Prepared to loose some cash this week and next but think he will get back up to where he is priced now in a month or so and move on him then. I have got other trading priorities this week and next. If you want to move him now I would be upgrading him to a keeper not a downgrade

      Gord29 · 27/05/2016 at 10:58

      Already used the other trade to get goldy and don't want to have an empty bank before byes so it may be the only option I have or lose cash for a week to see how they go

      Derek · 27/05/2016 at 11:30

      not bad, cause the kid can actually play!

      Southern S · 27/05/2016 at 11:35

      Agree and if he gets an 80 or so which is highly possible he won't bleed much.

    Derek · 27/05/2016 at 11:38

    DBJ to either KK or BSmith for only $40k.

    Serious good value. Think about them. Especially Smith, Crows draw starts getting very good.

      Youngster · 27/05/2016 at 13:14

      Had KK from day one and he's killed me but won't be trading him out and wouldn't (at this stage) recommend anybody trading him in. He'd want to show some form first. DBJ is actually averaging the same as KK!

      Gord29 · 27/05/2016 at 14:01

      May hold for another week not haven't really looked kk or smith but would rather get the extra coin going him down to a rookie as he is on the bench at the moment

Grahame Lebroy · 27/05/2016 at 11:10

Its a tough one. I can't really think of a solid def downgrade target with good JS. If you really want to downgrade you might have to do it with accepting that whoever you get may be giving you a donut in the near future. Can you get cash from other area's? Maybe take a punt on Mathieson or Trengrove in the mids and make cash there

    I N Pieman · 27/05/2016 at 11:44

    There is no one in Fwd or Def with JS. I don't need Hopper as I have a M8 spot reserved for Gray shortly. None of my mid rooks in Hewy Smith or Keays are ready to go. I can't see any decent move I can make that won't cause a future donut. So I think I'm going to hold. Got 5 premiums back. That's like trades in itself. Papsmear can sit there till an adequate replacement can be located

      Grahame Lebroy · 27/05/2016 at 11:56

      Yep I agree. No point making / rushing trades if you don't have to. I also have Hewett, Smith and Keays and they are not ready to trade yet. Same with Kerridge, Kennedy and AMT. Still deciding but thinking with players back why rush it

Mason · 27/05/2016 at 11:15

$30K – 21 Trades
After some advice on 1 trade, 2 trades or Hold? Thanks in advance.

Def: Shaw, Rich, Seedsman, D Byrne-Jones, Tippa, Brown, Adams, Weitering
Mid: Danger, Priddis, R Gray, Ablett, Hannebury, Libba, Oliver, Smith, Hewett, D Macpherson, Wells
Ruc: Gawn, Natanui, Grimley
Fwd: D Martin, Zorko, Montagna, Kerridge, Kennedy, Petracca, A Hall, Barlow

Who would be the best downgrade /target.
With my cash i dont think i can afford Simpson or Docherty. Maybe Rance or Bartel.
It depends on who I trade, but trying to set myself up. Any thoughts very welcome and appreciated.

    DadSmasher · 27/05/2016 at 11:32

    I'd be looking at getting rid of Darcy mac and or wietering, creating the fwd def swing before byes and generating enough cash to enable simmo doch upgrade after first bye

      Mason · 27/05/2016 at 11:40

      Could you expand a little more. I like the idea

Derek · 27/05/2016 at 11:29

ZSmith >> Goldy. won't get him any cheaper.

    Blake · 27/05/2016 at 12:07

    I need to trade someone else to get the $100k i need.

      Derek · 27/05/2016 at 12:50

      move simpkin to mid and get maitherson

GoHawks · 27/05/2016 at 11:35

Got a dilemma that I'm hoping the community may be able to help with.

$3k, 18 trades remaining.

Teams as it stands is-

Def – Shaw, Simpson, Rance, AMDT, Laird, Hartley (Brown, Collins – WB)
Mids – Danger, Parker, Ward, Selwood, Ablett, Libba, Priddis, Petracca (Smith, Davis, Keays)
Rucks – Goldy, Gawn (Wyatt)
Fwds – J.Kennedy, Martin, Zorko, Hall, Kerridge, Wells (B.Kennedy, McGovern)

My issue is with defence, and how to upgrade to full premo. I have Shaw, Rance, Simpson & Laird who are all premo's, I just dont see who else (other than Docherty would be considered a premo in defence), given I am sure that Bartel & Enright will be rested, and dont like having Hawks players in the team, as they share the ball, and change roles frequently, so can not be relied upon for premo output. I also see Boyds role changing with the Bulldog defenders returning from injury.

Do I just wait for Johanisson to return, and possibly keep AMDT at M8?

Thought appreciated.

    Derek · 27/05/2016 at 11:49

    I would roll the dice on Bartel. if you look at the cats draw, you will want him in. round 15 bye, ticks all the boxes. If he is rested, miss one week, no big deal.

      GoHawks · 27/05/2016 at 13:18

      Fair Call Derek, and the Cats have a great run going forward.

The Beard · 27/05/2016 at 11:40

Who do people think is the better option Simpson or Rance?

    Jim · 27/05/2016 at 11:44

    Simpson

I N Pieman · 27/05/2016 at 11:50

What a bitch of a week for my team. I'd like to trade to a rookie with good JS. None that do suit my team. I still have DeGoey Kerridge & Ben Ken with low Be's. I'm also willing to keep DBJ & Weit & back them in. Largely because no one has JS to replace them & don't have the funds to turn them into a Def Premo I'd be happy with. Quiet trading week for me I'd say. How boring lol

    GoHawks · 27/05/2016 at 12:11

    Big $$ hit your taking keeping Weitering & DBJ.
    Dont have Brown or AMDT in the forward line, that you can swing back, to enable you trade into a fwd instead of a defender?

    Brook · 27/05/2016 at 12:12

    I have my eyes on Hopper but given Brisbanes early game we should get a free look at Mathiesons second game … if he looks the goods I may hold too. Has same bye (r15) … planning on him being last upgrade in R15 or 16

    The Ranger · 27/05/2016 at 12:43

    Yeah unless Williams gets a gig I'll be doing nothing. If he's picked then I'll flick Menaspud via DPP.
    if Williams can hold his spot with Adams, Suckling and Boyd all coming back then he's probably going to stay in for a while, at least until JJ comes back.
    You not tempted by Williams Pieman?

      I N Pieman · 27/05/2016 at 14:45

      I am tempted for sure. Wait till teams later to see if he makes the cut. DBJ can go large but

Jim · 27/05/2016 at 12:08

AFL.com reporting or it sounds like B. Williams will be pushed back to the VFL??

    CJay · 27/05/2016 at 12:28

    I read it as Jed Adcock may be pushed back to the VFL building a case for Bailey Williams ?

      Tommo · 27/05/2016 at 12:38

      Yup, thats what they have said. Saying Adcock may be forced back tot he VFL due to B.Williams' good form

      Jim · 27/05/2016 at 12:45

      Yeah your right I miss read it because it said "He" which I thought they meant Williams but were actually referring to Adock in the prior sentence ….Adock back to VFL. My bad

They haven't played a game yet but who with knowledge about Collins & Joyce does the community think is better?

    Jim · 27/05/2016 at 12:47

    I think Joyce and with all the injuries @ GC probably has better JS than Collins because Collins play for Freo and Ross?

Is big gawny injured?
Rumour is his broke his hand two weeks ago and is rucking with his other hand hence drop in points and marks around the ground.
Haven't seen him play last two any truth to this?
Chance of a late out?

    Jim · 27/05/2016 at 13:06

    Heard he has a niggle not a broken hand. Dont think he will be a late out?

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 27/05/2016 at 13:21

      Rumour only I hope as don't have a backup. Hoping someone can quash this rumour.

Hazey · 27/05/2016 at 15:57

Could this be the season to 'upgrade' only in the backline? With no solid def rookies coming through, it might be wise to just upgrade to Premo's and hold 2 blokes like AMT, Dear, Adams all year as cover. There's nothing worse than bringing as bloke in to grab $100k and a week or two later they're never seen again and you start eating donuts!

Ethan · 27/05/2016 at 18:36

which 2 should i start, Barlow,Kennedy and/or petracca
