Should have listen to Higgo

Joel

Hartley, Brown or Sam Collins at d6?

Sully321

Hartley is probably safest bet

Sully321

Ben Kennedy or Petracca on the field? Also who to put as captain out of Pendles, danger, nic Nat, shaw, Zorko, jelwood, and Gawn? (Put VC on Parker last night)

poloko48

My team this week, love some thoughts on how everyone thinks I'm placed.
Currently 15 trades left, $118.3K in the bank, ranked 33,158 so languishing here. Currently 1,716 behind the lead with 14 rounds to go so outright probably out of reach now. Just hoping to drag my way into top 10K at end of season.

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

Have brought Danger & Zorks in this week for MacPherson & DBJ – need a big rankings lift.
Expecting Danger to hit back in a big way this week and go close to if not above BE of 162.
Really happy with how Tippett is going, particularly now that it's possible Goldy will be out next week.
Provides nice swing set to use as R2 with MKIng and saves either a donut or a trade.
Worried about Parker atm, seems to have slipped a bit and Hanners, Titch etc stealing points from him.
Have only 15 trades left so need to be very careful from here.

poloko48

Oh and forgot to say my VC on Hanners and will be taking his 126.

medadsson

Tutt tutt, the Father of fantasy football has done a sideways trade. The shame of it.

Youngster

Gawn to Goldie eh, based on Higgo's trading article earlier this season, this is a trade we should not make. If the injury puts Goldie on the pine for a week or two, it's gonna hurt…

medadsson

Gawn looks to be scoring well, Jock might consider him for Goldy πŸ™‚ Maybe a brilliance we mortals don't see … he may make 50k changing back to Gawn but I suspect that is not what he was thinking.

Youngster

I VC'd Gawn and he whacked out a lazy 167 – thank you very much!!!

medadsson

Excellent work!

@an3vilmonk3y

Same. contemplated the Goldy swap, but Higgo kept me on the straight and narrow.

Luke

Thoughts on going libba to priddis to finalize my midfield, with zaharakis at m8, while also getting hopper in at m9?

Jim

No way, keep libba get Priddis some other way

Youngster

It would be better to upgrade a rookie. Libba is reliable enough to play every week whereas some of those rookies are really going to stain the trousers from time to time. I know it's only about $30k but premos will fall, there will be value down the track.

Fevolution25

Loophole Barlow into Priddis or danger??? Or
danger into Priddis, just got a feeling Barlow is in for a big one

cashcows

WINES TO PRIDDIS YES?

Jim

yes

LJB

Yeah I made this trade also. Fingers crossed

Kevin

Hopefully Goldstein is injured an out for a period of time.
Might teach people who went sideways for players like Martin or Gawn for Goldstein.
Sorry, not sorry.

Jim

I agree

Youngster

103 from Wells – I'm not complaining! Parker on the other hand…

Jim

Hear ya mate I have Parker as well. Apparently Tmitch took Parkers spot and stole his points?

Jimmy

Stefan Martin do you want to be the number 1 ruck at Brisbane? Or just let Trent bloody West take over? Seriously mate your killing me.

Pom

Another terrible score this week will see him get kicked out hard from my team. By the looks im glad I didn't grab Goldstein this week, if Gawn steps up he might be a straight swap for about 50k more. Have Nic Nat already.

medadsson

Same here but it's Leppitsch who is starting him out of position. Why play a disposal winning ruckman as a fwd? Looks like he has to go but for who? Lycett was around same price.

Mac

Tippet is around that price otherwise you'll have to fork out the big bucks.

tuxCS

Ollie Wines on 4 points nearing quarter time. He's seriously testing my patience. If he goes below 450k im trading him. Robbie Gray back in the side has seriously effected his output.

hird

What a waste of a trade and money

Nicholas

I should have kept DBJ and traded out Wines instead this mistake might cost me later on.

Jim

DBJ wont be a mistake he wont reach his BE he will bleed cash! Wines on the other hand might bleed cash as well. After he just hyper extended his knee?

Kev

If he hits his 74 average (which he's on track to) he'll lose 10k. No big deal

Nicholas

Exactly my point should have kept DBJ he is even a possible keeper

Cattery

Then why did you trade him?

Jim

No I know Nic its a tough position for everyone this week with no Bubble boys in def. Dont worry almost every one traded DJB as well as myself! I have no regrets either. I thought of keeping him but just didnt want to lose what he generated already and have to wait to see "IF" he can generate it back. You only get two trades just hold Ollie and hope it gets better? You can only do so much with 2 trades.

Cheers

Nicholas

I had 400k and I wanted Priddis so i guess even if dbj does well it was still a good trade

Neverweaken

Agree. Always a risk but we got DBJ to make money, not to keep. He has made money so happy to move him on. Same with Wells. Not a keeper but has made me the cash.
I traded BenKen this week. Didn't want to but was 40k short of what I needed with trading any of my essendon players. He has made money. And it turns out was good time to trade.
Only issue with trading DBJ is if you traded him to a rookie. No good def rookies at the moment

Nicholas

Nah i went up to Priddis through a lot of dpp shuffling

Jim

Petracca not effective?

Pom

Ben Ken even playing??

Jim

He will be out this week? Had a BE of 55 and has zero almost HT?

Keenbutclueless

All week had BenKen to Tippett, Brown to Williams. When Williams dropped, hit the reverse trade. Was feeling OK about it until BenKen sitting on zero, and maybe needing Tippett next week to cover Goldy.

Neverweaken

Not sure about Tippett. I've had him since start of year. Happy with output but not someone I would trade in.

Holty

Stef Martin. Take out West so you can go back being the sole ruck.

Sully321

Good to see Kennedy doing well he's sitting on 0 points nearing half time

Tophawk

He bloody scheit alrite.

Hoot

not even Half Time and I'm taking GAWN's score for Capt.

D. MacP (C)
Priddis (EMG)

Tophawk

Gawn is back. For all those coaches that traded out Gawn for Goldy…Guess what,…….you have been punished! I do not feel sorry for yas!

randomcliche

And all those that rage traded Titch and Wingard

Jim

BREAKING NEWS!!!! BENKEN on 5 @ HT might meet BE of 55?

winters

jordan lewis dominating in his 250th

Tommo09

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

Thoughts??
$76k and 17 trades left

Tommo09

Do I need cash quickly?

Michael

Took a punt on Gawn (vc). You big beautiful bearded beast

@an3vilmonk3y

Same, based off some super handy chart that showed average SC points leaked by position / club. Thank you person I can't remember on twitter!

Tommo09

Jock, what did you do?!?!?!
Big Max Gawn going massive and Goldy injured!!!

Nicholas

Wingard and mcveigh are looking good but I only have 1 more slot in my forward line and dont have zorko

tuxCS

Zorko is a must have.

tuxCS

even though wines stunk it up, i had the VC on Gawn, so pretty happy with that.

bloke

Last minute vc change from Zorko to Gawn.. go you good thing Maxxy!!

David

Libba or Zaharakis for Priddis, to win my matchups this week, or hold both players?

Jimmy

Do I take Macmillans spud dish score of 58 or roll the dice with Ruggles.

lachie08

I hate macmillan. Worst choice to get him ever

Cliffy

In a bit of a dilemma here coaches. Very happy I risked the VC with Gawn as he went bananas with 150+ against a ruckless Port, however the problem here is that while I want to take his score, I'll have to take Petracca's lowly 43 and move J.Smith to the bench, in order to secure double points with Gawn (using MacPherson as my C loophole).

Unless I decide to put the C on Pendles and play J.Smith, hence missing out Gawn's VC score.

What do you reckon coaches?

Youngster

This is the trap when trying to loophole the rookies and relying on the same player for the captain's loophole. Take Gawn's score, just do it.

Jake

Take it, absolutely. Smith might not even make that against the Bulldogs anyway.

Neverweaken

Had to trade BenKen to get the cash I needed for Priddis. Wasn't happy about it but am now. Except of course I've got Petracca on the field.

azza

ross lyon ending barlows career
50% TOG what even

randomcliche

makes me sad

Rad

Ross Lyon is a dead set flog. Boring conservative defensive miserly and that's just his attitude to his missus! No wonder Barlow can't get a look in. Will never win a granny. Does not know how. It's beyond him. Hope Barlow opts for draft and gets to Carlton.

breakevens

community if I have C on dangerfield atm but the VC on Gawn can I sub Gore on (not playing) but Keays was my emergency before this move will I still get Danger's score?

Kev

So, sub Gore on for Danger and make him emergency? You get the lowest of emergency scores, so no you won't get his score (unless he scores lower the Keays, of course)

Dean

Kev thats bloody stupid. Who in their right mind would sub Dangerfield and miss out on his points. I'm sorry but your advice to breakevens is beyond absurd mate.

The Ranger

Er… I think you need to reread the question BE was asking Dean….you're missing the point.

Dean

Its not worth doing that, why would you put Danger on the bench when you end up getting Keys 49 points, so you will be missing Dangerfields score, that makes no sence at all.

Just leave the Captaincy on Dangerfield he should score at least 120 so this way if he scores his 120 you end up with 240 as Danger is your Captain + Gawns 167 which would equal 407 if he scores a 150 which is very easily achievable from him then you will be smashing it.
If you chose to take Gawns VC and miss out on Dangers score this will give you 383 points. Your talking about benching a elite premo like Danger and not getting his points would be catastrophic.

lachie08

why don't use sub gore on and make him captain. Then take a rookie if u have on and put him on the bench. If all premos then just take danger as captain.

breakevens

Barlow on one point on quarter time

Mac

He played half a qtr

medadsson

and Lyon has the cheek to give his team a spray! Strange what happened when he put Barlow back on the ball about half way through the second qtr. Someone needs to tap Ross on the shoulder, nah stuff it, double tap instead.

Dean

Stuff the double tap on the shoulder, he needs a king hit.

randomcliche

Oh dear…..whoosh…..over your head…..note to self…review double tap definition…

Johnny

Can't beleive I held onto Barlow wow

Johnny

0 touches first quarter then 10 touches for a 41 point quarter. I'll eat my words

Tommo09

Forward PODs???

Nicholas

Wingard

Tommo09

Riewoldt (STK)

gunston lynch from crows

johnno2908

Take petracca 51 or roll the dice on Brown? Leaning toward Brown

lachie08

What is peoples thoughts on wingard and tom McDonald. 2 very cheap and good players.

Dean

Hope no one traded Gawn out for Goldy.

winters

i'm looping collins with ruggles what would be a good score to take

marcus

i am as well I think I'm going to take it

John

Should i go heath shaw or danger for capt?

randomcliche

yesus…..danger everyday cept last week.

hedski

Might roll the captains dice on Chopstix.
Hopefully tear the bombers a new one.
Bye bye BenKen next week.

Neverweaken

Jock. Can you stop cursing players. Goldie injured. Tippett average. These are players I've had since the start so leave them alone!!!

Southern S

It wasn't just Jock it was everyone who sideways traded Gawn, the gods were not happy at all with this rebel movement.

Tophawk

Dear Ben, (Ken)

Thank you very much for your recent efforts in team Tophawk. I regret to inform you that your services will no longer be required moving forward. I wish you all the best with your future endeavours.

Yours sincerely,

Tophawk.
(Coach)

Tophawk

I think Heath Shaw has forgotten how to hand pass a footy. 11 kicks 3 marks and 0 hand passes at half time.

Not that I am complaining. Heater is one of a kind!!

Nicholas

Bye bye ben ken and Brown this week hello mathesion and rance/mcveigh

Nicholas

Next week*

Kev

Reckon that'll be the popular move

Leeds17

Yeah Rance is ripe for the picking may even drop again, in fact i wonder if it might not be prudent to wait till after R13.

Pboydo

Why did I leave Ben Ken on field and kerridge on bench. Idiot move

Jim

Yeah hate to say it mate but that was a very idiotic move!

Nicholas

B Smith you gun 2 tonnes in a row!!!

Southern S

He was really starting to burn people good to see him repay the faith.

Francis

Take Dusty's 111 or put the C on Danger or Selwood?

Iamme

I'd go Danger or Selwood, both capable of going large….. 111 not enough for a captain, need at least 125 before you lock in a captain's score imo

Juzzy

Depends on how well your team is travelling.
If you are cruising I would go with Dusty. Struggling then maybe take a chance.
Good Luck.

Derek

Danger for sure

TRIGGER HAPPY

Shaw didn't quite work out as VC so who do we reckon we put the capt badge on?
Options.
Nicnat, pridda, abs, doc, duncan or good old danger?

Jim

Danger!

Hoot

priddis – expect 150
