RD10: The Heroes. The Villains. The Damned.

Published by Jock on

Big Carl CoachKings Community

Our fearless leader Jock Reynolds gave a speech for the ages last week. When he spoke, our rookies listened. Unfortunately, the rest of the competition failed to heed his prophecy this round.

Round 10 was yet another round of mediocrity. So many of our premos failed to perform. But where there is despair, there is faith.

I present to you, Community, an oracle of hope. I gave birth to a son last week, and already he has demonstrated a freakish ability to see into the SuperCoach future. I simply said to the young man, “who should I make captain this week?” Todd Goldstein? Max Gawn? Heath Shaw? Patrick Dangerfield?

Without hesitation, the little guru signalled towards Max Gawn. The young man was on the money.

The Heroes

Tom Mitchell (178 SC)

Could easily be in the The Redeemers column, considering he has been ordinary the past month. But, boy, didn’t he play a ripper game on Friday night, showing why his owners selected him in the first place. The bloke is an absolute ball magnet when allowed to hunt the pill and not tag. Disposal is questionable at times, but that was not evident at all against the Roos. Bloody savaged them on his way to 41 touches.

Max Gawn (167 SC)

Like Mitchell, he could feature as a Redeemer, but his score is simply too big not to class him as a hero. My brother (a Melbourne supporter) believes he has discovered the key to Big Max’s meteoric rise this season, via some inside information. “He’s gone from smoking three packs of durries a week to only one pack a week,” he revealed to me. Indeed, the combination of the power of the beard mixed with a restricted amount of ciggies a week seems to be the recipe for success for the big man. Many had the balls to put the C on him, and they were rewarded handsomely.

Gary Ablett (143 SC)

The son of God is back. Bald Jesus looked like the little master of old as he tackled and efficiently disposed of the pigskin on the way to arguably his best performance of the season. The shoulder and concussion problems appeared to have vanished by some sort of miracle. To his owners, Gazza’s majestic handling of the football was like manner falling from heaven.

Honourable mentions:
Josh P Kennedy (161 SC), David Armitage (149 SC), Jordan Lewis (141 SC), Bryce Gibbs (140 SC), Jack Steven (138 SC), BJ Goddard (130 SC), Daniel Hannebery (126 SC), Bryce Gibbs (140 SC), Josh Kelly (132 SC), Patrick Dangerfield (127 SC), David Zaharakis (122 SC), Sam Docherty (121 SC), Luke Dahlhaus (119 SC), Dylan Shiel (118 SC) Lachie Neale (118 SC).


The Villains

Heath Shaw (81 SC) Many put the C on him thinking he would be able to magically replicate the double ton from last week. But in the words of the mathematical genius Peter J Higginbotham, “don’t go chasing points”. Like Danger the week before, wasn’t disgraceful, but was a bloody let down to those who made him captain. Callan Ward (72 SC) A rare blemish from the man who looks like an amazon warrior. Many in the past have gazed at Callan’s splendid physic, but the Crows appeared to have developed a crafty game plan that didn’t involve admiring the almost-perfect specimen. I wouldn’t be worrying too much if I was a Ward owner and I still believe he will be a top eight midfielder comes season’s end. Luke Parker (67 SC) His yo-yo form continues. Seems to thrive on going from hero to zero and then vice versa. His strengths are inside grunt work and drifting forward to kick goals. But, a runner he is not. In fact, he bloody looks pigeon-toed sometimes. It’s a real concern, Community. Sometimes he actually looks like he is struggling to cover the ground.

Honourable mentions:
Joel Selwood (82 SC), Aaron Hall (68 SC), Sam Kerridge (68 SC), Zach Merrett (74 SC), Jack Viney (65 SC).

The Redeemers

Chad Wingard (136 SC)

It appears as though he has got his mojo back. No doubt about it, the Chad is an absolute freak when he is up and about. I offended a Hawthorn supporter once by saying I thought he was a better player than Cyril when both players are in top form. The enigma that is Chad looks to be starting to get on a roll and seems to be a fair investment at a cheap price, provided he can keep current form up.

Jeremy Howe (125 SC)

It’s time to sit up and start taking notice of this man. Once known only for his ability to take the odd hanger, it appears Nathan Buckley is turning Jezza into a player of substance. It’s all very hard to believe, I know. The combination of Buckley being a good coach and Howe turning into a SC player we care about is hard to fathom.

Darcy Byrne-Jones (88 SC)

Was down and out for the count – had a high break even and traded out by thousands of sides. But make no mistake, this little dynamo is an absolute trooper. An old school footballer, the young man is as tough as nails and his tenacity is a pleasure to watch. Kudos to those who held him, as he will prove a valuable asset playing him on the field for weeks to come. A potential defence bench keeper.

Honourable mentions:
Brodie Smith (108 SC), Ryan Davis (90 SC), Michael Barlow (85 SC), Matt Suckling (96 SC).

The Prodigies

Anthony McDonald-Tippa (82 SC)

Epitomises the Essendon spirit. They might not be the best team but they have a fair dinkum crack. They put in 100 per cent. They show some effort. And you have to admire them for that. Tippa is a prime example. Despite not leading the AFL in the talent department, he goes in every week and has a red hot dip. It’s all very heartening to watch.

Christian Petracca (51 SC)

Talked him up significantly last week, but the young bull let us down. Overwhelmed by a physical Port Adelaide and the intense heat of Alice Springs, Petracca just wasn’t up to the task on the day. I believe he will bounce back, however.

Jacob Hopper (57 SC)

The buzz bubble kid of the last round was not quite at his best against the Crows. Still made 50-odd grand in his first price rise and has plenty more cash to generate. Job security is good and is playing in the middle, even if he does butcher the ball from time to time. A wise selection and I wouldn’t be surprised to see another couple of strong games from him in the future.

Honourable mentions:
Josh Dunkley (89 SC), Josh Smith (78 SC), Darcy Parish (67 SC), George Hewett (63 SC), Rhys Mathieson (53 SC), Ben Crocker (52 SC), Mason Cox (47 SC), Ben Keays (49 SC)

The Damned

Ollie “Let down” Wines (62 SC)

Just hasn’t been himself in 2016. As far as previous form goes, there has arguably been no bigger let down this season than Oliver Wines. Where has that contested-possession beast with the glistening quads gone? Looks a shadow of his former self. Was picked by many with the potential to be an ultra premo keeper. Sadly, those that have him must now look at upgrade options.

Jarrad “Overrated” Waite (56 SC)

Those of you that selected this man due to this blistering early season form – take a good hard look at yourselves. As a key forward, he was never going to be able to sustain those numbers. Many North Melbourne supporters criticized this column when it was rightly suggested that selecting Waite would be a trap. “His statistics show he is almost the best player in the AFL at the moment,” they said to me. Absolutely laughable. Was never going to be a top six forward.

Ben “Gone” Kennedy (29 SC)

Going, going…gone. For those that still have him, myself included, it will be an unbelievably satisfying rage trade. Played a full game, not listed as injured, so it defies belief how he could be so ordinary. Had been serviceable up until this performance. Has to go now. Will leak some serious cash after this so almost a must-trade.

Honourable mentions:
Sam Jacobs (73 SC), Shannon Hurn (60 SC), Jacob Weitering (59 SC), Paul Seedsman (55 SC), Mark Blicavs (53 SC), Jordan De Goey (51 SC), Mitchell Brown (46 SC), Jack Steele (28 SC), Michael Hartley (19 SC), Marc Murphy (12 SC).

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

breakevens · 30/05/2016 at 10:17

What's Harry Marsh's JS look like?
Looking to go Ruggles down to Marsh

    Beagz · 30/05/2016 at 10:53

    Job Security would be close to 0.

    You would think Teddy is back next week and Marsh will go out of the side. Would only return through injury or resting Grudy/Teddy. Look to pick him up next year when he starts to take over from Richards full time.

      Deadly · 30/05/2016 at 15:18

      Teddy out for the next two minimum so JS looking better

        Beagz · 30/05/2016 at 16:23

        Didn't know that. Sam Reid will be back however and I would think takes Marsh's spot.

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 14:52

    Very low, not many Sydney rookies have played more than 2 games and there have been a few of them

      Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 15:37

      Mills? Hewett? Papley?

      Sydney get lost of games into their rookies compared to other teams.

        Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 15:37


          Danners · 30/05/2016 at 21:44

          I was thinking of Hiscox, Aliir.

    Steeeve · 30/05/2016 at 14:55

    You'd probably be better off going Bailey Williams if you're taking a punt on someone unlikely to immediately burst his bubble.

    Guest · 30/05/2016 at 15:30

    Tucker likely to come in for freo this week

min0008 · 30/05/2016 at 10:26

Need to get rid of Wines as he has been terrible this season especially since Gray's been back. Got 18 trades and 102k in the bank.

Thinking of Ben Kennedy to Mathieson and Wines to Gray

This will leave me with 16 trades and 293.4k left with 4 more upgrades needed.

    bUCKET__ · 30/05/2016 at 11:23

    If you burn any more trades, you will be stuffed. Don't do it maaaate!

      min0008 · 30/05/2016 at 11:27

      It's either Wines to Gray or Hannebery or Menadue to Dahlhaus?

        Steeeve · 30/05/2016 at 11:34

        If you can do Menadue to Dahlhaus then that's a no brainer.

        Wines is still averaging 90. Hold until you're full 'premo' then if you still want to flick him grab whichever gun mid has fallen by that stage. There will be someone. Was Priddis last week. Gray this week. Parker will be super cheap soon. And there will be others later on.

          dean · 30/05/2016 at 23:38

          What about Wines for abblett this week?

    gillie44 · 30/05/2016 at 14:38

    who are your other 4 upgrades left?

      min0008 · 30/05/2016 at 15:57

      One defender, 1 midfielder and 2 forwards

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 14:53

    Wines should be the last of your worries at the moment

Tom · 30/05/2016 at 10:26

is it worth downgrading gresham to mathisen

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 14:58

    Gresham just got his best score of the year. Might finally make some money.

    Fishman · 30/05/2016 at 17:33

    keep Gresham, he'll crack 300k, but it might take a bit of time.

Tom · 30/05/2016 at 10:27

congrats big carl! hope he is well

Hferg · 30/05/2016 at 10:36

hartley > sam collins
ben ken > wingerd/ lids

hewett/smith > mathieson
ben ken ? wingard

    jaffa · 30/05/2016 at 10:45


    Tommo · 30/05/2016 at 12:51

    1 as it looks as though Hartley will be out for a least a week or 2.

    Dice · 30/05/2016 at 12:52

    get lids for sure or wait one more week. breakeven 124

oldmate65 · 30/05/2016 at 10:40

What are our thoughts on James Kelly?

Seems to be getting some more time in the midfield and I am seriously considering bringing him in
Could also be a great POD

    Steeeve · 30/05/2016 at 10:53


    Although he's getting pricey now. In a couple of weeks I'll have to choose between him or Rance at probably the same price. In fact, Rance will likely be cheaper. Not sure I can pull the trigger but this kid is a jet.

      Steeeve · 30/05/2016 at 12:15

      Obviously didn't read your post properly, my bad. Thought you were talking about the GWS boy.

    Mickeyjay71 · 30/05/2016 at 10:56

    I have had him for 5 weeks and he has been consistent. Hoping he picks up DPP soon so I can swing him into my backline. He is one of my POD's and has contributed to my rise up the rankings from 55,000 after round 2, to 3,800 after last round.

      The Mountain · 30/05/2016 at 11:09

      Mate, supercoach don't do mid season position changes like dreamteam

    Tommo · 30/05/2016 at 12:53

    I would pick him up if he was a defender, but as a midfield, there are much better picks for a similar price.

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 14:51

    Looked good early on, but I think you've missed the bus. Better options around

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 15:41

    Boat sailed at the start of the year, and the boat ain't that good anyway.

Chill · 30/05/2016 at 10:45

Gray or GAJ? that is the question….

    Steeeve · 30/05/2016 at 10:55

    There are no questions when it comes to God. There are only answers. The way of God is always the correct answer. All other answers are incorrect. It is the Gospel, it is the truth.

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 14:51

    The answer is… GAJ

    JamiesNinjas13 · 31/05/2016 at 15:57

    Mate, there is no question here….

Hoot · 30/05/2016 at 10:48

BVC – your MID is almost a mirror of mine (replacing Hanners with Smith on field)

Johnny · 30/05/2016 at 10:51

Are most winners of SuperCoach in #1 spot for now? Should we start focusing on league wins…

    Beagz · 30/05/2016 at 16:24

    Depends what your rank is.

    Looking at the actual gap that needs to be made up I would say top 1000 and you are still in contention. You would need some seriously lucky POD's to pay off though.

      Johnny · 30/05/2016 at 18:04

      Yep I'm 380th atm 700 points off the leader, slipping away a bit. Need to select some pods for sure

        Beagz · 31/05/2016 at 14:05

        I would keep going for overall anyway. All you need is a good captain pick and a POD to perform well and you move up.

        I'm fluctuating from 40-150 each week so it's pretty fluid near the top.

        Plus even if you don't win, you get bragging rights for next year! 😛

BKW · 30/05/2016 at 10:57

For what it's worth Ben Kennedy apparently tweaked an ankle in the warm up – he'll be gone this week though, time to cash in!

Jai · 30/05/2016 at 10:58

Stefan BLOODY Martin?!!

    bUCKET__ · 30/05/2016 at 11:32

    Think I might hold onto him, give him time to get back into form while I upgrade elsewhere. Won't get too much lower than he currently is… (I bloody well hope not!)

      The Mountain · 30/05/2016 at 12:17

      Im getting rid of him this week. Its not that he is out of form, I think he has been in pretty good form, but west is stealing majority of the ruck duties and leppa for some unknown reason keeps him up foward where the ball isnt going to often. And the fact the he still has a BE of 160 worries me

        Rick Grimes · 30/05/2016 at 13:15

        Yea I'll hold and hope for better. With Rocky back perhaps they'll rejig things again and West will get dropped. .

    Tommo · 30/05/2016 at 12:55

    I would be getting rid of him if i didn't have to deal with Hartley and Benken this week.

    Deadly · 30/05/2016 at 15:20

    Got rid of him last week for Goldy, team just looks better

Bolton's Blues · 30/05/2016 at 11:01

Libba and BenKen > Howe and Franklin, thoughts?
if i trade the same 2, i have just over 1mil to spend, i can get 2 forwards or 1 mid 1 forward
other options if mixed around trading out the same 2 players
Wingard and Dahl
Wingard and Zorko
Wingard and Lids

Wingard and pretty much any other forward, high risk high reward just like picking Howe

    Dave · 30/05/2016 at 12:38

    I prefer the second option. I don't think you're getting that much better on the first. I don't really agree with trading libba yet either.

    Tommo · 30/05/2016 at 12:56

    No need to get rid of Libba, get rid of him as your last upgrades, or even keep him as an M8

    Bolton's Blues · 30/05/2016 at 13:26

    if its not libba, the only other rookies i have to upgrade are Kerridge and AMT (Byrne is my only rookie defence player, and Petracca sits on my forward bench)

    i can do Kerridge and BenKen to Wingard and Franklin or Howe, im 1k short of getting Joey

    Beagz · 30/05/2016 at 16:25

    I would urge you to think very carefully before bringing in someone like Howe.

Todd · 30/05/2016 at 11:05

Is it worth bring B. Smith in? He has bottomed out and BE of 19 and seems to have lifted a bit.

    Hazey · 30/05/2016 at 11:48

    Wondering there same… Smith down back and Wingard up FWD. Could be a masterstroke(r)!

      winters · 30/05/2016 at 11:59

      i would watch him with laird to come back into the team it could affect

      Nathan · 30/05/2016 at 12:30

      They are the 2 im thinking of bringing in
      Maybe mcveigh

    Redgumwon · 30/05/2016 at 13:34

    Laird will be back this week. That might mean we'll see Smith scoring less again?

      mark · 30/05/2016 at 18:20

      Im pretty sure smith was scoring more with laird in the side

        JamiesNinjas13 · 31/05/2016 at 15:10

        Agreed. Smith scores more with Laird in the side. Less pressure to be the #1 runner out of defense. The thing that worries me is Henderson being in the team. They have Smith, Seedsman, Laird, Henderson all play that half back/wing role which could take points off eachother.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 30/05/2016 at 14:00

    With the crap bench in def either getting dropped or injured so very unreliable I am thinking of a strategic move and upgrading Ruggles to Smith on the bench.

      Redgumwon · 30/05/2016 at 14:18

      That's a fair bit of coin sitting on the bench that could be used to get a premium anywhere else on the ground?

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 30/05/2016 at 14:28

        Yes and no. Based on last couple of games he would probably b on the ground but there is a question of what impact will laird have? So would leave amt or longeran on the bench.
        If laird or Adams miss or anyone else not really confident brand or Ruggles will b there when I need them so could face a donut again

        $100k upgrade for insurance tempting.

          Redgumwon · 30/05/2016 at 14:54

          I think Laird will take points off Smith as he has done in the past. I'd rather upgrade to Williams (GWS) if you're thinking of going down that path? I am hearing what you're saying though about having good bench cover. But why waste a trade?

          My backline is Shaw, Laird, Bartel, Boyd, McVeigh, Tippa, DBJ & Collins (WB) I'll have one more upgrade and I'll either trade out Tippa or DBJ. The one I keep will be the EMG on my bench for back up. that is of course unless I need the cash fast for an upgrade elsewhere. By keeping at least one of these guys I'll have one reliable scoring back up and save on a trade

            Averag Joe · 30/05/2016 at 17:43

            I don't agree. Smith scored better with Laird in the side

    Average Joe · 30/05/2016 at 17:13

    If you think crows will be winning more often in future.

    Averages 3.6 more effective disposals, 1.3 more contested possessions and 2.1 more rebound 50's in wins. Helps his supercoach scores a lot when adelaide play well

PJay · 30/05/2016 at 11:12

Ok, time to address the elephant in the room.
Who ACTUALLY went Gawn to Goldstein?

    min0008 · 30/05/2016 at 12:04

    I went Stef Martin to Goldstein and I am rapt with that decision.

      Steeeve · 30/05/2016 at 12:16

      Speaking of rapt, Goldy's knee is probably still wrapped in ice. I've had him from the start. Let's hope he's all good.

    Bloke · 30/05/2016 at 12:35

    I did in a rage trade last Sunday night. Thankfully, common sense prevailed. Reversed and put vc on Max. 334 points later I'm rage free.

    Adsspinner · 30/05/2016 at 13:12

    I did …. Still happy with it but we will see again this week

winters · 30/05/2016 at 11:15

would like some trade advice on my team as bye rounds are coming up ill leave my team and structure below – 8k left ranked 6000 18 trades left

DEF: Shaw, Docherty, Laird, Enright, Tippa, Byrne (Ruggles, Collins)
MID: Danger, Hanners, Ablett, Ward, Shiel, Priddis, Zieball, Lewis (Hewett, Davis, Gresham)
RCK: Gawn, NicNat (Lorensch)
FWD: Dusty, Hall, Boomer, Kerridge, DeGoey, Petracca (Benken,non palying rookie)

R13 – Docherty, Laird, Byrne, Dusty, Kerridge, Hall, DeGoey, Gresham, Ablett, Davis, Lorensch (11 missing)

R14 – Tipungwuti, Non playing Rookie, Petracca, Benken, Hewett, Priddis, Hannerbery, NicNat, Gawn (9 missing)

R15 – Ruggles, Enright, Shaw, S.Collins, Boomer, Ward, Danger, Lewis, Zieball, Shiel (10 Missing)

thoughts would be much appreciated

    Mark · 30/05/2016 at 11:51

    It's still only the top 18 scores in bye rounds so you are looking very nicely spread.

      winters · 30/05/2016 at 11:58

      would you make any trades

    Tommo · 30/05/2016 at 13:00

    Spread very nicely, i would just do trades that help you get to full premo. No need to do anything special. It is very well spread.

    Ben · 30/05/2016 at 19:37

    Give up ur shit

Liam · 30/05/2016 at 11:19

Hewett to Mathieson

Kerridge to Deledio.


    Saundo · 30/05/2016 at 11:50

    Aaaahhhhh welcome !

    Steeeve · 30/05/2016 at 11:51

    My first trade idea of the week is the same, but BenKen to Deledio (holding Kerridge).
    I'd rather bring in Gray this week and wait on Lids. But can't swing anything to bring Mathieson in that way. And downgrade targets up forward are severely lacking.

    Tommo · 30/05/2016 at 13:00

    I am trading Kerridge out in the byes, could still make money and scoring well. But they are both good trades.

Bob Butter · 30/05/2016 at 11:25

Is it worth trading macpherson for Mathieson this week?

    Steeeve · 30/05/2016 at 12:17

    He's not exactly setting the world on fire. Better to use him as a downgrade but if you're like me none of your mid cows have fattened. A tough one…

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 14:49

    Yes if you have another midfield eating donuts on the bench

The Mountain · 30/05/2016 at 11:29

Shocking week this week community, went from 2346 last week to 2011 this week with a little help from stef martin, hartley and Ben Ken all producing nothing

This week im going:
martin -> Nic Nat
McPherson -> Mathieson

Joel · 30/05/2016 at 11:37

Thoughts on Shiel over Ward?

    Bolton's Blues · 30/05/2016 at 11:45

    I started with Shiel, consistent scores, cant complain

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 30/05/2016 at 14:01


    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 14:49

    Both good options, but Ward should finish with more points by the seasons' end

David T · 30/05/2016 at 11:41

B: Shaw, Simpson, Gibson, Rich, Laird, Tippa
(Adams, S.Collins)

C: Danger, Pendles, Ablett, Libba, Priddis, Gray, Rockliff, J.Smith
(Hewett, Menadue, Mathieson)

R: Goldstein, Nic Nat

F: Zorko, Montagna, Hall, Wells, Barlow, Kerridge
(Petracca, Cox)

17 trades | $139,500 (after trades this round)

Proposed Trades:
De Goey >> R. Gray
B. Kennedy >> Mathieson
Wondering whether Parker, Ward, S. Mitchell, J. Selwood are going to be sitting in the Top 8 midfielders at the end…

    The Mountain · 30/05/2016 at 13:59

    Ward will defiantly be top 8, Parker and Selwood maybe but at the rate they're scoring at the moment probably top 15, and not to sure where mitchell will finish

Rhys · 30/05/2016 at 11:43

Tipa and Hartley gone
Gibbo and rance in thoughts ?

    David T · 30/05/2016 at 11:56

    Gibson probably close to his cheapest price you'd think and has the late bye.

    Rance you could wait a few weeks and trade him in for someone like DBJ, Brown, Tippa, Adams after his bye and before theirs.

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 15:08

    Tippa scores consistently and is on a 43 BE. Hold for sure.

Northernsoul74 · 30/05/2016 at 11:51

I'd be holding Tippa.

Saundo · 30/05/2016 at 11:51

Any other rookies to consider this week ? Already have Mathieson

    winters · 30/05/2016 at 11:57

    Paine from the lions is on the bubble and could go early on collins from freo

Banned_34 · 30/05/2016 at 12:00

Is it time to flick Libba? I am not sure he is top 8 material. BE of 113 this week. He may have maxed out. 25k extra to swap him for Gray

    David T · 30/05/2016 at 12:09

    Not completely against this trade as I think Gray is a really good pick up. Surely you have Kennedy or someone else whose BE is less achievable?

    I see Libba as someone I'm going to be happy to have on-field for a while and I think he will be over 500k at some point (could even be 2 weeks from now? Do you want to miss that?). Just think it'd be silly to not hold him through the byes where he will be really useful.

    If all things go to plan, I'm personally hoping to trade Libba to Hannebery for around 60-80k at some stage.

      Banned_34 · 30/05/2016 at 12:23

      True. my issue is that all my PODs are POSs. I have Mitch Robinson (cue laughter) Wines and that stupid Waite. (I knew i should have dumped him once he had made 150k). just not enough super premos and to many questionable scorers.
      I dumped Kennedy last week and all my other rookies have acheivable breakevens.
      I'll hit that reverse change button at least 400 times this week.

    Rick Grimes · 30/05/2016 at 13:43

    I'm keeping Libba for now. He's not gonna produce ultra premo output, but with the carnage I've suffered over the last few weeks I need to preserve that trade. Worst case scenario he'll end up as M8, but if things go as planned he'll be M9.

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 18:16

    I wouldn't say it's time to flick Libba, but if you want Gray then maybe ditch Wines.

David · 30/05/2016 at 12:05

Never usually do sideways trades but thinking Wines >> Gray
Wines is absolutely stinking it up at the moment and doesn't look like scoring anywhere near 100+.
Then Downgrade Kerridge to Mathieson and double upgrade to 2 defense premo defenders next week.

    Jordan · 30/05/2016 at 14:20

    I'm holding on to Wines for the hopes i can sideways, or close enough to one, to Parker..

Wayno76 · 30/05/2016 at 12:15

I think Libba played a great game 30+ disposals I thought his game would have been worth a ton for sure. I'll be holding him

Vinny · 30/05/2016 at 12:17

Anyone trading out Kerridge this week? Know of his Breakeven?

    Wayno76 · 30/05/2016 at 12:21

    60 break even

    Todd · 30/05/2016 at 12:26

    I wouldn't trade Kerridge BE 60 and playing the lions

    Rick Grimes · 30/05/2016 at 13:45

    I'm thinking of Kerridge to JPK. But he's low priority with that BE,

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 14:47

    Should be the last rookie traded out

Shake n bake · 30/05/2016 at 12:24

Ranked 1030 could have been a lot better but had Parker capt
Rd 7 & 8 oh well. Still have 20 trades so hoping to make right
Trades from here on how is everyone else traveling?

    Johnny · 30/05/2016 at 12:31

    I'm ranked 500 with 20 trades also, copped a zero in the backline which cost me. Think we're still in the race for #1?

      Rick Grimes · 30/05/2016 at 13:46

      Probably not unless you have some excellent PODs. But who knows. If a lot of people put the C on a bloke who's off after 5 mins and you get it on the bloke scoring 150…woooshka, can move a long way in a short time.

    One Touch Wonder · 30/05/2016 at 14:03

    do you have Hall?

    Johnny · 30/05/2016 at 14:27

    Mm yeah I hit Gawn this week but Byrne and laird out hurt me. Hoping to make a break back through the byes

    @lewiswgrant · 30/05/2016 at 19:00

    Why would you put the C on a bloke playing friday night? Vc no argument, but C??

      Beagz · 31/05/2016 at 11:01


      Makes no sense to put the C on unless you had absolutely nobody you could loophole somehow.

Big G · 30/05/2016 at 12:32

Deleido or Zorko?

    Jordan · 30/05/2016 at 14:19


    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 14:46


      lachie08 · 30/05/2016 at 20:32

      id got deleido now and get zorko later

    Derek · 30/05/2016 at 15:04

    Lids, but he has a round 13 bye

HallyM8 · 30/05/2016 at 12:48

If Suckling performs well next week could he be considered as a decent keeper option at below 400k? Can see him scoring 90+ for the rest of the season

    Neverweaken · 30/05/2016 at 16:52

    I've had him since the start nearly traded him but then Bob went down. Then he performed well before injury. He is a keeper for me

Tommy · 30/05/2016 at 12:48

Wanting to get rid of Hartley and BenKen this week, going to paint the fance, but not sure who to downgrade and upgrade. Ideally, i want BenKen's replacement to be a mid/fwd, so i keep that swing option. Thoughts?

    David T · 30/05/2016 at 13:30

    Hartley to Collins
    Ben Ken to Zorko, Dahlhaus, Martin, Deledio, Merrett, Montagna?

      Tommy · 30/05/2016 at 13:36

      That would be ideal, but i just realised that my forwardline would be too lopsided, as i would be forced to play Collins or Brand in defense, while i would have Kerridge on my bench. Is this good or should i aim to upgrade defense instead?

        BKW · 30/05/2016 at 14:03

        Post your team and we can advise properly – but yes sound like you need a defence upgrade

          Tommy · 30/05/2016 at 14:10

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

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

          Goldy, Martin (Wyatt)

          Dusty, Buddy, Merrett, Greene, kerridge, De Goey, (BenKen, Petracca)

          Playing wells in the midfield until i get another premo mid.

            Billo · 30/05/2016 at 20:42

            Backline mate. Simpson, Enright or bartell maybe.

              Tommy · 30/05/2016 at 20:45

              Yeah mate, if i can find a way to downgrade BenKen to a mid/fwd, ill be going simmo.

          Tommy · 30/05/2016 at 14:10

          Sorry, Zac Williams is in for DBJ

Joe · 30/05/2016 at 12:52

Menadue to Gray and Brown down to Collins this week, finally giving me 10/10/10 for the bye rounds.
Have no choice but to miss getting Mathieson this week as Smith Davis and Keays still have room to grow.

    One Touch Wonder · 30/05/2016 at 14:02

    your new to this arn't you? No-one goes into the bye rounds with 10/10/10, more like 7/11/12

The Beard · 30/05/2016 at 12:55

Franklin or Robbie Gray would be moving Zorko down if I took Gray.

    The Mountain · 30/05/2016 at 13:56


Adsspinner · 30/05/2016 at 13:07

Stevens or Grey for Ben Kennedy …..1 trade only for me this week. Oh and I am ranked 45 so need all the help I can get jock !!!

    Brookesy · 30/05/2016 at 13:15

    Gray, but check your bye situation.

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 14:46

    I like the look of Steven, could be a good POD for you since you are ranked so high up

Nick · 30/05/2016 at 13:20

How many trades should we look to be on right now ?

    The Mountain · 30/05/2016 at 13:55

    Around 18-20, maybe less depending on the injuries you have coped so far.

    Wayno76 · 30/05/2016 at 14:15

    Ive only got 13 left but i have good cover for the bye rounds and will not trade in bye rounds at all, Had a bad start to year every week a new injury

      james · 30/05/2016 at 14:25

      i've got 12 using 2 this week but i'm 2 from full premo

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 15:27

    The amount of trades that your team needs to make it through the year, is the amount you should have 😉

      Beezneez · 30/05/2016 at 17:54

      Good answer

    Beagz · 31/05/2016 at 11:03

    I've got 15 left after this week but only a few spots off full prem.

    Generally you should aim to have 10 trades and full prem team for after the byes.

    Use this as a guide and adjust depending on your situation.

daisy · 30/05/2016 at 13:23

How did Stef Martin not make it into the damned column?? 600k premo with back to back 40s. Biggest rage trade ever!!

    Cam_H · 30/05/2016 at 14:30

    Needs Steven May to flatten him from behind to knock him back into the shape he was in before Round 4!

Stevo · 30/05/2016 at 13:48

Hartley has to go now?
Have KK, with Ruggles and Williams on bench.

And what about an F7/R3 back up for Goldy?

    winters · 30/05/2016 at 14:10


      Stevo · 30/05/2016 at 16:58

      Thanks winters. Not sure on his JS though. Cox is the other option, but at $264k but he may not make much more $.

      The trades could be Hartley & Menadue to Cox & Weitering/Zak Jones. However, they feel like wasted trades right now and they are worth Gold now.

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 17:21

    Nth says Goldstein will be playing this week.

      Steeeve · 31/05/2016 at 09:16

      Thank the supercoach gods. Was contemplating an upgrade to Tippett instead of Lids just to avoid a donut. Might be necessary to bring in a ruck swing player at some stage though, for those of us who selected Grimley instead of Cox especially…

One Touch Wonder · 30/05/2016 at 13:58

Which one is Hall? Shark Bait?

Jordan · 30/05/2016 at 14:16

G'day community,

My team is looking quite okay at this stage heading into the bye rounds soon.
However it's time to cull some lambs.

I am currently thinking,

Ben Ken to Rhys Mathieson
Michael Hartley to Sam Collins with a whopping 489k in the bank for a double upgrade next week, but risking it on the first weeker.


Ben Ken to Mathieson
Hartley to Bartel/Gibson with 82k in the bank and the plausible trade of Brown to Collins next week.

Thoughts community?

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 14:44

    If Kennedy and Hartley are on your bench, option 1

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 15:17

    Option 2, may as well wait for Collins to be on the bubble and you'll get a premo this week.

    Beagz · 31/05/2016 at 11:17

    Option 2.

    Too much money to have sitting on your bench.

james · 30/05/2016 at 14:20

Getting rid of DeGoey and Wanting a Premo FWD who to get in

Riewoldt (POD)
Lids (already have Dusty)

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 14:43

    Dahlhaus, Zorko could wait a week as well

    jaffa · 30/05/2016 at 16:02


Wayno76 · 30/05/2016 at 14:28

What to do with S. Martin. Lost so much cash on him I cant bring my self to trade him out… He has been outscored by Cox on the bench 3 times now… he's doing my head in. Is there any light at the end of the tunnel can anyone see him coming good and worth holding…
Im spewn I was tossing up between Martin and Nat at the start of the year… (I went the wrong choice).

Can someone please give me some hope and tell me its all going to be alright 🙂

    Deadly · 30/05/2016 at 15:28

    The cash is gooonnne. The question is would you buy him in now with his price, performance and potential or someone else. If someone else, is he worth a trade over Martin?

Gibbs · 30/05/2016 at 14:31

Hewett –> Mathison
Ben ken –> Wingard
leaves me with 105 k to use next week for upgrades thoughts?

    Wayno76 · 30/05/2016 at 14:33

    Looks good

    Good game last week Gibbs

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 14:42

    Big risk in Wingard, but could be worth it if you want to make a move up the rankings

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 15:20

    I'm taking the Wingard risk, at worst he'll become an F7.

Wayne · 30/05/2016 at 14:51

Grey, Dahlhaus or Franklin who u prefer ?

    @DanielFisher · 30/05/2016 at 15:37

    Dahl. Lock him in.

    Beagz · 31/05/2016 at 11:18


Micky · 30/05/2016 at 14:53

    Derek · 30/05/2016 at 15:09

    work out what 3 premo defenders and 2 midfielders you want in your team.

    then pick them off during the bye rounds

    Beagz · 31/05/2016 at 11:19

    Looking good.

    Libba —> Hanners would be clever.

Lucas Riddle · 30/05/2016 at 15:04

J Selwood and S Mitchell absolutely killing me . Sh*t Cu*ts

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 15:26

    Selwood should bounce back, Mitchell is 33 years old and was a trap from day one.

    Many people in the supercoach community warned people.

      Todd · 30/05/2016 at 21:56

      Ok Know it all!

Tommo09 · 30/05/2016 at 15:07

$76k left

@DanielFisher · 30/05/2016 at 15:15

I am so bloody enraged with Ollie Wines and his majestic thighs. He pops up for the occasional 100, but has been pumping out snot for the majority of this season. Would nearly be able to excuse his behaviour if he kicked the pill occasionally instead of constantly hand balling. He will sit there, like a stain at M8 until the byes, but he's as good as dead to me. I had big hopes for him this season. Never again Mr Wines. Never again.

Dan @ Hand Candy FC.

    CoachDamo · 30/05/2016 at 15:22

    Ollie Wines is a contested ball-player. He's in my team (sigh) so i watch him closely when Port Adelaide plays. He's a stoppage player, at his best when the ball is in close. However, he handballs a lot and when he kicks it is often a kick forward under pressure (he leads Port for clangers). His main problem is one the ball is released from the stoppage, he's lost. Players from both sides break free and stream away from the pack – he is always left behind. Wines just doesn't have the run to go with them (I'm surprised he can walk with those thighs!).

    Sadly I think the drop in stoppages this year has affected him just as much as some ruckmen.

Jdmang · 30/05/2016 at 15:15

What's going on with Priddis ?
I'm getting real nervy that he's only managing to scrape the 100 mark

And will Rance be a top 6 defender ?

    Beagz · 31/05/2016 at 11:27

    Stand by the Shaggy haired god.

    Look what happened to people when they dare to trade out GAJ. The same will happen to you if you trade out priddis.

    Give him another few weeks, get the rest of your team premium, then review.

    Priddis -> Shiel will get you an extra 10 points a week on average.
    Hartley -> Bartel or a premium defender will get you 30-40 points a week, it's important to prioritise your trades.

Haych · 30/05/2016 at 15:24

hought I'd share with everyone my Round 10 experience… My starting team was lucky enough to contain: B.Kennedy, Murphy, Viney, Hopper, Shaw as capt, Petracca, Rich, Hall, Kerridge.

I also decided to utilise the loophole and get DBJs score on for Adams, by putting Laird on field. I was also smart enough to save an emergency just in case I had any late withdrawals on Sunday and could use that on Adams…. HOWEVER I very conveniently found out Kkolo was a late out 5 minutes into the Dogs-Pies game. End result 1 donut, a dismal score of 1823 and an extremely deflated ego. All this after being on top of the world with a 2367 last week!

    Steeeve · 31/05/2016 at 09:19

    The seas can be cruel, but you're better off staying in the ship.

Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 15:29

I wouldn't call Shaw a villain every defender is going to get an 80 here and there.

    Choppy · 30/05/2016 at 20:09

    True, but i think with his recent form a lot of people were relying on him as captain, and received and stinking 80 x 2. Thus making him a bit of a villain

      Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 20:23

      Yeah true, he shouldn't have set the bar so high with that 203!

        Blueth · 30/05/2016 at 22:12

        where's Todd?

Dave · 30/05/2016 at 15:46

I have two trade ideas this week:

Hewett to Mathieson and;
Kennedy to McVeigh or

McPherson to Mathieson and;
Kennedy to collins

Tiges · 30/05/2016 at 15:46

Not sure what trades to do this week…



// COX


I've got $250k in the bank and 15 trades, I know I'm on the light side of total trades but will stop in a few weeks and hold for injury's..
Considering trading out Brown to Collins and upgrading rather Kerridge/Cox to Dahlhaus as nobody in the mid is fat enough to be traded out to Robbie Gray.

    Billo · 31/05/2016 at 01:42

    Have a week off the trades.

Mac · 30/05/2016 at 15:47

How many trades are people down to this week? If I use 2 I'll be down to 17. Is this about right?

    Campbell · 30/05/2016 at 16:29

    im down to 13

    Dean · 30/05/2016 at 16:39

    I personally dont think it really matters aslong as you havent been doing a heap of sideways. I have about 15 left but am near full premo so not too worried.

    Stevo · 30/05/2016 at 17:02

    18 and getting nervous. Might wait for Bye rounds to sure up defence, though may be forced to get an R3 if Goldy is out this week.

    JamiesNinjas13 · 31/05/2016 at 15:55

    13 trades left with 2 spots to to fill, I have been rushing to get my side to full premium before the byes end and then I will relax on the trades and load up for a hard run home and finals.

Tommo09 · 30/05/2016 at 16:00

Def: Shaw, Adams, Docherty, Tippa, DBJ, Brown (Laird, Byrne)

Fwd: Martin, Franklin, Barlow, Hall, Wells, Kerridge (Kennedy, Petracca)

Thinking Kennedy and MacPherson for Wingard and Collins

Ranked 2100 with 2192 on weekend
Not much cash left
Even after these trades on a bit left

Should I do a double down instead
Not sure on Wingard but think he is too cheap
Might reverse actually


    Tommo09 · 30/05/2016 at 19:33

    Please help 🙂

      Billo · 31/05/2016 at 00:00

      Don't trade this week. Not many good options. No point trading just for the sake of it.

Connor · 30/05/2016 at 16:07

Worst week I have ever had in my 3 years playing seriously, I scored 1866 community!! Consolation is needed if I am going to play out the year 🙁

    Derek · 30/05/2016 at 17:55

    As Jock would say "we're here for ya mateee"

    I had one of those scores a few weeks ago, I've bounced back well but sticking to the plan.

Nick · 30/05/2016 at 16:31

I need to finalise my backline – already have Shaw, Simpson, Docherty, Bartel and Laird. B Williams on the Bench and Hartley on the way out. Who can I fit in? Z Williams seems a good fit at a nice price, great POD. Would McVeigh be too Risky? Enright looking good also but very unsure.

    Mac · 30/05/2016 at 16:33


      Campbell · 30/05/2016 at 16:45


    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 17:24

    Could wait another week on McVeigh with a projected 100 he will only go up 9k.

    Derek · 30/05/2016 at 17:51


    Before you dismiss, look at his scores (except week he did tagging role) , then look at Crows draw for rest of year then look at his price.

      Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 18:02

      He is very tempting at that price. Scoring is decent.

      For example Hartley+70k is a solid trade. If he doesn't end up that good then you have a great D7.

Campbell · 30/05/2016 at 16:44

14 trades and 358k in the bank.
Shaw Rance Docherty Yeo M Adams Mcdonald-Tipungwuti // B Williams Broad
Selwood Shiel Parker Gray Ablett Liberatore J Smith Hopper // Keays MacPherson Schoenfeld
Gawn S Martin // Cox
D Martin Montagna Franklin Hall Wells Kerridge // B Kennedy Petracca
1. S Martin and B Kennedy to Goldstein and Wingard or Howe or any others under 520k in forward line
2. S Martin and B Kennedy to Naitanui and Dahlhaus or any others

    Kev · 30/05/2016 at 17:17

    2. Goldy not the absolute must have like he was last year.

    The Mountain · 30/05/2016 at 17:17

    Option 2

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 17:28

    Option 1

      Campbell · 30/05/2016 at 17:30

      If i do pick option 1 which forward to get

        Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 17:55

        Wingard if you're the gambling type, he is projected to go up 32k with a score of 78. If he scores well it'll be probably be 40k+ and boat missed.

        Whilst Jeremy Howe is scoring very well I'd be very careful when considering this choice, honestly not a chance I'd bring him in. many will on the back of this form, but it could backfire.

        If it succeeds then sure he might score quite well and end up at about 550k? May as well just pay for a Dahlhaus or Zorko.

        Franklin is the only forward I'd consider at the moment under 520k, I like Merret too but he has a high BE and will possibly drop a fair bit over the next few and could be picked up after the bombers bye.

Tret · 30/05/2016 at 16:46

Considering bringing in Stringer next week as bench cover. Massive ceiling and will be around 350k

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 17:35

    2015 – 22 games played

    Scores of 100+ – 4 (105,114,115,128)

    2016 – 10 games played

    Scores of 100+ – 2 (104, 113)

    Not sure about the massive ceiling, and he's incredibly inconsistent.

      Smote · 31/05/2016 at 10:09

      Agree with this. Good research to back it up too.
      One way trip to Spudsville.

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 21:40

    Should be looking at bench cover once you have a full premo team

mick · 30/05/2016 at 17:03


Tulendeena · 30/05/2016 at 17:04

Lids or Dahlhaus?

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 21:39


Neverweaken · 30/05/2016 at 17:26

Any forwards or def on the bubble. Want to get rid of Hartley but all my mid forwards are already in the forward line. Or I trade Hartley and Oliver and get Gibson and matheson?
Hartley out for a while. No urgency now

marcus · 30/05/2016 at 17:40

thoughts on bringing lachie neale in this week and getting gaz next week if he is back or just get gaz in this week

    scyb · 30/05/2016 at 20:44

    If you dont have gaz at this point, you are not fair dinkum about super coach

      Rod · 01/06/2016 at 11:12

      Bit harsh. If he brings him in now he's paying a lot less than the rest of us. Hasn't missed out on a mountain of points either.

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 21:39

    Missed the boat on Neale, maybe look at Steven

      marcus · 30/05/2016 at 22:58

      didn't really miss a lot scyb but he seems to be back now so ill bring him in

Cameron · 30/05/2016 at 17:42

Bring in Hannebery or Pendles this week?

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 20:32

    Get the one who fits your bye structure first.

    I'm waiting till round 14 to get Pendles after his bye.

      Beagz · 31/05/2016 at 11:29

      I cannot believe it is week 11 and people don't have hanners. Absolutely outrageous

Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 17:45

Anyone else think Hopper is a potential burn man?

Already on a positive BE of 17 after his first price rise.

Has Geelong at Skilled this week,and Sydeny at Spotless next (followed by bombers)

Like the write up Carl but not sure I'd call him a wise pick……yet.

Also no mention of Motlop as a Villain with a 29?

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 18:19

    Motlop as the damned*

      Todd · 30/05/2016 at 21:24

      You tell us sport you seem to think you are a expert!

        Todd · 30/05/2016 at 21:25

        You have all the answers! Why you asking the community?

    Steeeve · 30/05/2016 at 21:23

    Pretty glad I passed on hopper. Decided he wouldn't be a keeper. Nice young player but too expensive to start with.

    JamiesNinjas13 · 31/05/2016 at 15:44

    I've always thought a burn man is a premium player who is under performing not a rookie who is performing at his expected output. Never thought of picking him anyways due to the infinity amount of older talented midfielders running around there.

Shauno · 30/05/2016 at 17:45

G'day Community, wondering what you think of my plan this week.

My problem players at the moment are Hartley, Brown, Wines and Menadue.

I don't really like the current crop of bubbles boys on offer this week but Mathieson seems to be the pick of the bunch. Blokes like McVeigh and Wingard are tempting but I don't see them as top 6 in their respective lines so I'm choosing to stay away.

The plan is to stick Hartley on the bench in the hopes that a more suitable bubble boy comes along to downgrade him to. Brown I think will make a bit more cash yet so I'll probably hold for now. Menadue needs to go and only didn't go last week because he wasn't named so he got a spot on the bench. And I'd prefer not to trade Wines, had him since the start and would prefer if he made some of the lost cash back before I look at trading him.

My trade plans are Menadue and Libba (I think he's peaked and there are many better mid keeper options about) out and Mathieson and Dahlhous in. This gives me an extra 40k in the war chest as well.

I've got my sights set on Boyd/Simpson for def and Lids for fwd but I don't think this is the week to get them, they look set for slight price drops, hoping to make them part of my bye rounds upgrading.

Would love to hear your thoughts community. I'm struggling to come up with reasons not to do these trades this week.

    Todd · 30/05/2016 at 18:40

    I wouldn't trade Libba he's an easy M8 possibly M9. He's my M8 right now, he's averaging almost 97. He is capable of going large. Think Doggies just be cautious with him right now to see how he fare's? With the Doggies in contention for finals, think they might let him loose in the coming weeks? I'm sure he's being monitored. But at some point they are going to have to let him loose? Just my option.

Bobby Singh · 30/05/2016 at 18:00

Two trade options lads.

• Martin to Gawn

• Kennedy to Gray

Which one is more efficient? Also, who is the best rookie to pickup this week? Looking at Collins.

    Beagz · 31/05/2016 at 11:30

    Is the rest of your side full premium?

      Bobby Singh · 31/05/2016 at 18:10

      Close. 3 rookies left.

Mac · 30/05/2016 at 18:07

Surely Trengove gets a run this week with the flog Viney out?

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 20:30

    Hopefully, I didn't get Hopper and probably going to skip Mathieson too.

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 21:38

    He might, should be a good cash cow

    The Ranger · 30/05/2016 at 21:43

    Fingers crossed

Girdle · 30/05/2016 at 18:08

Didn't the Fearless Leader also advise us to get Gawn out of our sides? Sage indeed.

Andrew · 30/05/2016 at 18:16

Hi community.

Thanks in advance.

Gibson, Rance or Bartel?


    annoying old lady · 30/05/2016 at 18:48

    **disclaimer, i asked the same question in this thread, waiting on response too

    Ok, out of Rance or Gibson, I'd argue that Gibson has a higher scoring potential, but Rance is a more consistent performer. Although, they are both key position backmen, and are prone to wildly swinging scores.

    Bartel is my answer to your question. Barring last year, where he suffered a knee injury and missed a significant portion of the year, he as averaged over 100 in eight of the last nine years (averaging 98 in that one season). This season, he is averaging 94, HOWEVER in his last 5 games, he is averaging 106.8, and his consistency in those games is aligned with his form over the whole of his career.

    TLDR: Bartel. He gud.

      Andrew · 30/05/2016 at 18:58

      Bartel has a tougher draw than the other two but I like his last 3-4 games during finals as well. Decisions, decisions.

    Bob · 30/05/2016 at 19:24

    Im thinking big Zac Dawson is due for a breakout second half of the season

mfawcett77 · 30/05/2016 at 18:18

Not too really sure on what to do this week? Any ideas would be great. Have 20,800 in the bank.

Defenders: Shaw, Dohcerty, Gibson, LAird, Tippa, Ruggles (Wagner, S Collins)
Midfield: Danger, Parker, Titchell, Sloane, Lewis, Sidebottom, Adams, Rockliff (Menadue, Smith, Macpherson)
Ruck: Gawn, Jacobs (Grimley)
Forwards: Martin, Zorko, Merret, Hall, Kerridge, Wells (McGovern, Pertracca)

Thinking Kerridge & Wagner > Montanga & Cheap rookie such as Tucker if he plays again leaving me $48,900 afterwards and 12 trades.

    mfawcett77 · 30/05/2016 at 18:19

    And that's counting on Rocky being an in and Adams sitting on the bench until he returns. Also know I have to get rid of Menadue and Macpherson at some stage soon.

      annoying old lady · 30/05/2016 at 19:09

      Save the trades!! But if that advice doesn't bode well with your plans, how about kerridge down to jackson paine ($127k), then you could bring in any defender you like for AMT with $649k. If you went Bartel ($497k), that would leave you with $151k, potentially saving you a trade later by using a straight rookie upgrade later.

    Mac · 30/05/2016 at 18:21

    Jeez 12 trades left, I'd be looking to save trades mate. It's a long season.

    mfawcett77 · 30/05/2016 at 19:42

    thanks for advice. Thinking you're all right so maybe just going Macpherson to Mathieson and cash grab.

Kevdog · 30/05/2016 at 18:19

Here's my team
DEF: Shaw, Simpson, KKolo, Adams, DBJ, Brown (Hartley, Broad)
MID: Danger, Hanners, Ablett, Steven, Shiel, Libba, Smith (Davis, Keays, Macpherson)
RUC: Gawn, Martin (Currie)
FWD: Dusty, Zorko, Hall, Wells, Barlow, Kerridge (Tippa, Petracca)
121k and 18 trades left.
thoughts and what trades ? Thanks

    Mac · 30/05/2016 at 18:24

    Brown and Hartley to S.Collins and Gibson or Docherty.

Scotty · 30/05/2016 at 18:39

Which defender under 485k for hartley in defence??

    annoying old lady · 30/05/2016 at 18:59

    Gibson is the safest option under that price.

    Some left field players:
    – Pittard
    – Enright
    – McVeigh

    I personally wouldn't pick any of those three (I'm too safe :P), however it might be something you would like to consider and take a risk on.

    Todd · 30/05/2016 at 19:02

    Gibson or Pittard

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 19:23

    Gibson or Smith

      Todd · 30/05/2016 at 21:39

      Not smith dont listen to this turd! Dumbarse

        Thommo · 30/05/2016 at 22:07

        Same clown. Different name.

          Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 23:28

          Yep I reckon it's at least the third name they have used, it tells me a lot about this weak person.

            Thommo · 31/05/2016 at 01:27


        Blueth · 30/05/2016 at 22:10

        Shut up, but yes i agree with you.

    Ketut · 30/05/2016 at 20:44

    McVeigh, daylight then Smith for value, then Gibbo for ceiling

    Leeds17 · 31/05/2016 at 05:46

    Is it to finish you're defence? like are you looking for a POD?

    If you've got big brass ones you could take a punt on Nick Haynes, extremely talented and has a decent role with Wilson and Williams playing further forward now,

annoying old lady · 30/05/2016 at 18:40

Already have Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Boyd, and Laird down back

Rance, Gibson, or Bartel?

    Todd · 30/05/2016 at 19:07


    Choppy · 30/05/2016 at 19:12


    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 21:37

    Bartel for bye cover

Mac · 30/05/2016 at 18:43

Gibson, Pittard, Williams, McVeigh, Rich but out of those I would go Gibo or McVeigh – Gibo first.

    Todd · 30/05/2016 at 19:01

    Probably Gibbo but he's a roller coaster……up and down ….up and down.

Shane · 30/05/2016 at 18:53

If we are strapped for cash and need a defender is Brodie Smith even an option?

    Todd · 30/05/2016 at 19:00

    Probably not with Laird most likely being back this week. Ive considered, but when Laird is back he will be the main man.I'm waiting for Laird to lose money because I dont think he will make his BE then grab Laird?

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 19:21

    Yes he's an option don't worry about Laird there's no statistical evidence to say he will impact on his scoring.

    Smith has scored well this year with and without Laird in the team.

    I stand by my opinion that Smith is not a premo defender, but he will score well enough to justify his cost, and can be used as a D6 or at least D7.

      Todd · 30/05/2016 at 19:26

      Take know it all's (Souther S) advice if you wish. B. Smith doesn't score as well when Laird is in crows line up look for yourself! Think he's only been scoring well because no Laird.

        Redgumwon · 30/05/2016 at 19:29

        agree with you Todd

          Todd · 30/05/2016 at 20:15


        Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 20:20

        The stats don't lie, he scored 65, 82, 86, 87, 94 and 107 with Laird in the team between rounds 1-6.

        He scored a 68, 29, 92 and 108 without Laird.

        Looks pretty similar even getting rid of the anomaly when he was tagging.

        I never said I knew it all just presented my argument after looking at the stats, you're a tool.

          Redgumwon · 30/05/2016 at 20:33

          Everyone is entitled to their own opinion Southern, just like you've said it was your view in regards to Smith. No need to go calling others for their opinion a tool if they think different

            Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 20:39

            Mate he was rude and said 'take know it all southern's advice if you wish'

              Redgumwon · 30/05/2016 at 20:57

              But you're better than that Southern. Like many others here I listen to what you have to say. You give some of the better advice here on the forum.

                Todd · 30/05/2016 at 21:08

                He doesn't give good advice! Just spews sh*t out his mouth! He thinks he's better than everyone else! NOT!

                Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 23:21

                Thanks Redgum but I called it how I saw it, the word I used to describe him was fitting, with upvotes on my post and none on his it seems the community agrees.

              Todd · 30/05/2016 at 21:06

              Southern S you are always rude you piece of sh*t! Guess you dont like it turd!

              Todd · 30/05/2016 at 21:11

              : (….. Now you know how it feels when you comment on other peoples post! Need a huge! : (………. Dose of your own medicine chump!

    Blueth · 30/05/2016 at 22:07

    Smith is a front runner and a sure fire way of getting a bald spot. Do no trade in.

      Derek · 31/05/2016 at 00:06

      i started with him and been reasonably happy. Currently have him at D6, looking to keep him as a D7, will bring Rance in after his bye.

      You could do a lot worse than him at D7/M9 with Crows run home.

        Derek · 31/05/2016 at 00:10

        This year will be hard to get a full ultra premo team, the cash cows are slow to fatten and hard to find.

        As a result we might have to pick a couple of semi-premo players. Defence the best place, he might be ok for that place if short on cash. Wingard another at F6

Choppy · 30/05/2016 at 19:07

Wheres that flog who was telling everyone to eat humble pie a few weeks ago after he traded in Waite, despite everyone's advice not to? Hahaha, you can have your humble pie back mate, and enjoy a side of turd with it

        One Touch Wonder · 30/05/2016 at 21:24

        Where is that guy who traded Hall to Zorko about 3 weeks ago and wouldn't stop telling everyone else what a great SHARK MOVE it was and how anyone keeping Hall would drop below his starting price so get rid of him?

        That's right it was me!

          Choppy · 30/05/2016 at 21:38

          Cudos One Touch, my shark move of trading heath shaw to zac dawson hasnt paid off yet………

HOLLA · 30/05/2016 at 19:30

Howe back to the forward line?

Tommo09 · 30/05/2016 at 19:35

Not a fan of NRL but go QLD!!!

Corey · 30/05/2016 at 19:42

best cheap rookie to get in fwd or defence?

    Kev · 30/05/2016 at 20:24

    Not a lot. I think Paine is the only one on the bubble.

    Leeds17 · 31/05/2016 at 05:47

    Tucker potentially named for Freo JS iffy.

mfawcett77 · 30/05/2016 at 19:43

Rocky back this week? Going by injury reports and any news I can find appears so. Anyone want to add some ideas to this?

    Stevo · 30/05/2016 at 19:54

    Maybe wait a couple of weeks of playing form on Rocky, he's had an awful injury run.

      sean · 31/05/2016 at 01:36

      I wish there was three of him, one forward, one mid and one back, then when he breaks down in the backline you would still have two more of him to go to break your heart.

    Rick Grimes · 31/05/2016 at 07:50

    Yep should be named. I've held him so hoping for an extended run this time. Also held Gray, Laird and Gaz, so I'm due some luck.

Tophawk · 30/05/2016 at 20:11

Trades this week;

1- Ben Kennedy OUT and Connor Menadue OUT.

2- Rhys Mathieson IN and Jarryd Mc Veigh IN.

Kennedy's effort this week was the final straw. That is 2 sub 40 scores now in the last month. He is gone and with Hawthorn this week, he's gonna start bleeding cash. I used and abused Menadue with great effect as a loophole option. Can't do that this week as the tigers are up first against North on Friday night. As such, his time has come and is gone.

I reckon Mc Veigh priced at 442K with a BE of 80 is now cherry ripe for the picking. He pumped out 116 this week and he is showing signs of getting back to some good form. I dont think he will get any cheaper if he stays fit and on the park. Mathieson is the best of the bubble boys so he is an easy selection.

BANG BANG! One trade up and one trade down.

    Jason · 30/05/2016 at 20:45

    can't really say mcveigh is getting back into form off one score, we will see after this week

      Leeds17 · 31/05/2016 at 05:49

      He was useless the 2 weeks before but very solid the 3 weeks before that, I went early and copped the 2 bad scores so still not feeling great about the trade but he does have the scoring history on his side

    The Ranger · 30/05/2016 at 21:38

    Probably doing the same THawk. Might do Macpherson instead of Menaspud.

      Tophawk · 30/05/2016 at 22:42

      Agree. Mac p is out for the rest of the season. Menadue may come back. Useless this week as a loophole though.

Don't Blush Baby' · 30/05/2016 at 20:14

M.Brown to McVeigh
B.Kennedy to Wingard

I can do this but are McVeigh & Wingard in the top 6 in their positions ?

    Ketut · 30/05/2016 at 20:48

    I don't think Wingard is mainly because there are so many good forward options averaging 100+ who don't look like slowing down. I do think McVeigh will be thereabouts from here on though.

    Tophawk · 30/05/2016 at 22:47

    I just don't trust Wingard. Port's draw is about to get really tough.

    No thanks

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 23:47

    Highly unlikely they will be in the top six for their positions but both are a good POD.

    McVeigh 3% ownership, Wingard 6.6%.

    Wingard can be pretty inconsistent, but with a 6 BE now would be the time to get him.

    McVeigh has an 80-odd BE so could wait.

    Rick Grimes · 31/05/2016 at 07:53

    McVeigh tonned up on the weekend but otherwise has been scoring 70-80 since his return. Is that a sign of a return to his best, or a blip? I brought him in a couple of weeks ago so I hope it is. But I had begun planning for him to occupy d7 as he had looked decidely average.

annoying old lady · 30/05/2016 at 20:20

I don't think either of them will be.

    annoying old lady · 30/05/2016 at 20:21

    oops ignore

shemmist · 30/05/2016 at 20:22

whos gonna average more, gray or mitchell? i cant decide hahah

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 20:26

    Gray should average more than either Mitchell.

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 21:35

    Gray was a top 10 mid last year, so Gray

Tommo09 · 30/05/2016 at 20:24

Do I need Wingard??
My team is above

Here are the pros and cons
Pro- Is an upgrade
Will make me money
Can go big
Is better with Gray
Is in good form
Gives me DPP in fwd and mid

Cons- $420k
May need to be traded
Not a proven scorer
Miss Mathieson
Only have about 50k left
Low on trades


Boltons blues · 30/05/2016 at 20:29

Is Chad Wingard back? Thinking of doing benken and Kerridge to Wingard and Howe/Franklin anyone under Joey Montagnas price ($900 short for him)

    Todd · 30/05/2016 at 21:33

    I personally woundn't get rid of Kerridge avg of 83.70 and plays the lions this week @ home and a BE 60? But its ur team ur choice.

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 21:35

    Kerridge should be one of the last rookies traded. Not sure on Wingard yet, could give a week

    Boltons blues · 30/05/2016 at 21:44

    Well I have 556k to upgrade benken, who should I pick?

Higgo and Crouching also advised to hold Gawn didn't they?

    Todd · 30/05/2016 at 21:53

    STFU Southern S you kiss arse fck

Tommo09 · 30/05/2016 at 20:32

Is Blakely an option with Ross playing the kids???

$280k with a BE of -49

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 20:36

    He's an option with good JS but will more than likely be a waste of trades to make 100k.

MATT · 30/05/2016 at 20:34

hartley to a rookie (fwd of defence)
Josh Sith to robbie gray

    Seriously? Why would you trade J. Smith now?

Tommo · 30/05/2016 at 20:38

Any rookies on the bubble this week or next week other than Mathieson and S Collins?

    Southern S · 30/05/2016 at 20:41

    None that I'd consider have good profit potential or JS.

      Tommo · 30/05/2016 at 20:44

      Bugger, wanting to Downgrade BenKen, and while Mathieson is the obvious choice, i want to keep a mid/FWD swing in my midfield

        Todd · 30/05/2016 at 21:03

        S. Collins JS is good I brought him last week which I wouldnt typically do but had to dump deference men before he bleed cash

          Tommo · 30/05/2016 at 21:07

          Would bring him in, but i would have an extremely weak defense so if i can help it, i am aiming to get a premo defender.

    Ketut · 30/05/2016 at 22:10

    I'm going Paine

    Leeds17 · 31/05/2016 at 05:53

    I think Paine at Brisbane has ok JS think they'll give him a run to see if he's up to AFL standard as a defender, he's just a heart beat though never going to score well.

Jacob · 30/05/2016 at 20:55

Thoughts on Jack Steven 540,000k, three round average 130 and breakeven of 40.

    Todd · 30/05/2016 at 21:04


    Tommo · 30/05/2016 at 21:05

    Decent POD, but may be paying quite high for him, Gray has a higher ceiling and much cheaper. If you need a POD, then go with Steven.

    Danners · 30/05/2016 at 21:33

    Great POD if you need one

    Leeds17 · 31/05/2016 at 05:54

    If you're pretty cookie cutter in Mid then don't mind it, if you're like me and have Shiel, Duncan & T Mitchell really need to be getting in the popular guys.

osei3619 · 30/05/2016 at 21:06

could you guys pick two of the three?

Edwards (tigers), Mcveigh and Suckling

    Neverweaken · 30/05/2016 at 22:22

    Suckling at least

Derek · 30/05/2016 at 21:13

it's only monday

The Ranger · 30/05/2016 at 21:34

Is it just me or is there a lack of decent rookies around compared to previous years?

    Todd · 30/05/2016 at 21:40

    That would be an affirmative!

    Ketut · 30/05/2016 at 22:09

    You're right, they did say if wasn't a very good draft though. Imagine how bad it could have been had the Essendon players not been suspended.

    Leeds17 · 31/05/2016 at 05:56

    Yeah definitely, bit on the pricey side but look out for a DEF/MID from the Bomber who'll likely debut next week, ready made AFL player like Parish

      The Ranger · 31/05/2016 at 09:32

      The price tag is a killer eh Leeds?
      I'm hoping Long might get a game soon too.

    Kev · 31/05/2016 at 07:56

    I reckon we were spoilt early with the amount of downgrade options. Dried up recently

      The Ranger · 31/05/2016 at 09:29

      It certainly has Kev.
      I seem to remember a similar thing last year tho and it was about this time I started to plummet down the rankings as I sought to offload rookies that I felt had hit their peak during a period when there wasn't actually much to downgrade too or upgrade to premos when I really didn't have the cash for the ones I wanted.
      It's easy to get caught up in the rush to get to full premium and make trades you later regret.

    Beagz · 31/05/2016 at 11:52

    I would say the opposite!

    This year has been the best so far for me, third year playing.

min0008 · 30/05/2016 at 23:03

Kennedy to Mathieson
Menadue to Dahlhaus


Kennedy to Mathieson
Brown to Zorko

I'll probably go option 1 as I need to get rid of Menadue and Brown's BE is only 51 and could get it.

Sean · 30/05/2016 at 23:25

Dahlhaus or dusty?

    Kev · 31/05/2016 at 07:54


    Beady Eye · 31/05/2016 at 10:01


Tommo · 31/05/2016 at 08:32

Thoughts on Jackson Paine? Looks like he may have JS but i'm concerned that he could stink it it 1 or 2 weeks and instantly get a positive breakeven. Need to Downgrade BenKen to a FWD or Mid/Fwd and Paine looks like the only option this week.

Harley · 31/05/2016 at 08:41

How much roughly do we think Robbie Gray and tom Mitchell will be next week if we don't pick either this week?

    gator59 · 31/05/2016 at 10:07

    Gray 506k

    Mitchell 530k

Steve · 31/05/2016 at 09:14

Is Chad Wingard the real deal?

    Blueth · 31/05/2016 at 09:57

    inconsistent, port are mediocre and never had a great average even in AA years, i'm gonna leave it.

    Tommo · 31/05/2016 at 10:03

    He needs Port to play well for him to score well. Ports draw gets tough from here on, i'm leaving.

    Derek · 31/05/2016 at 14:16

    In your mind, how many keepers do you have? 17?

    Who are the other 5 or 6 you have in mind? And can you afford them now? If not how much more cash you need

      Carla · 31/05/2016 at 15:15

      18-19 keepers. Plan on having Barlow rich and libba as bench players eventually

      I want to strengthen my forward line next and probably my backline last

      Probably need 500k

        GoHawks · 31/05/2016 at 15:58

        Your still getting/will get increased values for-
        DBJ, Byrne, Collins, Smith, Davis, Dunkley, Petracca

        Rucks & Mids are good, Need 1 upgrade in fwd line (make that midfield, swing Barlow fwd), and 2 upgrades in defence, after that you can deal with upgrading Rich, Libba & Kerridge.

        I would wait until the values of the 7 players to make money have peaked, then pick up the bargain of the week. This week Gray is it, possibly McVeigh in the next couple. Look for premo's you havent got that score low, such as Selwood, then when they have hit rock bottom hopefully you will have players that hit their peaks to move.

The Beard · 31/05/2016 at 10:28

Zorko or Dalhaus???

Currently running with :

Shaw, Doherty, Bartel, Rance, AMT, Adams (Byrne-Jones, Collins)

Danger, Hanners, Pendles, Parker, Selwood, Gaz, Zaharakis, Gray (J Smith, Davis, McPherson)

Goldy, Nic Nat (Chol had since start swings with Cox)

Dusty, Zorko/Dalhaus (need to pick one), Hall, Kerrige, Wells, Petracca (Cox, Menadud)

Next week Menadud goes and Zorko/Dalhaus comes in.

    The Truth · 31/05/2016 at 12:16

    Zorko has 118 BE and Dahlhaus has a 123 BE so not too different but zorko is generally a higher scorer. Zorko has Carlton while Dahlhaus the Eagles so I'd be leaning towards zorko and picking up Dahlhaus at a little under 540k next week.

      The Beard · 31/05/2016 at 12:55

      Thanks mate. Answers my question.

Osei · 31/05/2016 at 10:39

who is more likely to have a better season?

Edwards (tigers) or Mcveigh

    Southern S · 31/05/2016 at 14:56

    Are you going to use them as a midfielder?

gillie44 · 31/05/2016 at 11:13

thinking of doing the following risky trades:
Kerridge to SAM Mitchell
Tipungwuti to Josh Gibson
which would leave me only to upgrade Aaron Young and Libba _Thoughts?

    Northernsoul74 · 31/05/2016 at 12:01

    Why Tippa? Surely you have more pressing issues to trade out?

      james · 31/05/2016 at 12:02

      i would get rid of young before tippa

      tippa has scored 96 and 82 last 2 weeks he still has money to be made

        gillie44 · 31/05/2016 at 12:26

        young is averaging 100 in last three rounds but I agree tippa has money left to be made

      gillie44 · 31/05/2016 at 12:41

      My team is:
      Defenders: Shaw, Bartel, Gibson, Boyd, Rance Smith, Tippa Bench: Ruggles, Williams
      Midfielders: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Parker, Ward, Selwood, Liberatore, Young, Kerridge
      Mid Bench: Davis, Smith, Macpherson
      Rucks: Gawn, Nic Nat Bench: Grimley
      Forwards: Martin. Zorko, Greene, Hall, Wells, Wingard Bench: Menadue, Petracca

        james · 31/05/2016 at 13:16

        surely you need to get rid of menadue

    Southern S · 31/05/2016 at 14:57

    Incredible that Mitchell was 610k only 6 rounds ago, spud.

james · 31/05/2016 at 12:05

is Zorko a must have, personally i feel that he is to exspensive and i feel that Dahlhaus/ riewoldt are better picks because they're 40k cheaper

would love to hear some thoughts on this

    Liam · 31/05/2016 at 12:33

    Have to agree. Not going to pay that much for him, hopefully he will drop.

    Johnny · 31/05/2016 at 12:34

    Zorko is good in patches he's averaged 100 in the past. Last year he didn't hit a ton till mid way last year, so I'm tipping he falls at some point this year.. May have missed the boat

    The Beard · 31/05/2016 at 12:59

    In my opinion Zorko & Dahlhaus are a must have in the forward line at some stage.

    Though it really comes down to your situation and your roster (my case being mids and rucks locked up with all prems) and defenders i'm pretty happy with I need to work on my forwards.

    My drama this week was Zorko or Dahlhaus. I want them both in the next week/2. I was informed in a few posts above that Zorkos B/E is quite realistic as he plays Carlton this week. Dahlhaus may have a tiny drop.

    Iamme · 31/05/2016 at 13:06

    The facts

    Zorko hasn't scored below 102 all season, not to mention he's yet to break 150 this year which means he's only going to get better imo….that alone tells you he's a must have…don't you think?

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 31/05/2016 at 13:20

      Totally agree.
      Best scoring forward gets the job done every week regardless of the teams result.
      has not dipped below 100 once not many players you can say that about this year
      benken – zorko home run last week.

        Derek · 31/05/2016 at 14:10

        Zorko is playing above his long term average. Not sure it will last therefore his price too high. What will happen when Rocky comes back?

        Lids is the value pick, but he has round 13 bye.

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 31/05/2016 at 14:32

          I'm not looking at averages I'm deal in the here and now. Zorko is the inform best scoring fwd.,
          Zorko is on fire. Doesn't matter if rocky comes back as he still scores just as well.
          Besides hannas I cant think of one other player in the entire competition who has not dropped below 100 for the year
          talk about consistent.
          Lids has been a bit up and down and is injury prone. $550k he should be averaging 110, he is well below that.
          Will see how lids goes against roos on Friday night as played dons last week so he was bound to score well.
          if pumps out a big score may trade him in next week but will probably go Dahl for the same price.
          Zorko is averaging 118! that is elite and he still under-priced at $585k.

            Southern S · 31/05/2016 at 15:04

            Yeah Zorko keeps getting it done in wins or losses he's a freak, but I feel like it can't go on forever.

            Deledio has got injuries the last three years early on, then he's been fit for the rest of the year, it's really strange.

            His scoring is solid though and going by history he is now safe to lock in. Personally I'd wait till after his bye.

            Can easily score the same or more than Zorko and is only in 3% of teams, compared with 20% for Zorko.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 31/05/2016 at 13:14

Now with GC getting some players back it's time to go Jesse longeran. Was scoring 90's with all the injuries but 50 on the weekend as no getting as much of the pill.
that will stay with him to the byes and will bleed cash so thanks for your help but time to go.
who to?
Thinking gibbo as suits my bye structure and will get Simmo after his bye for a cheaper price.
McVeigh? One good game not convinced.
Got $490k to spend got shaw, doc, laird.

TO complete this trade need $100k so trading mendapoo to a fwd rook but who?
What is Paine like? Js?
Should I bring in grimely to create dpp with wyatt? Problem will have two zeros during the byes.
Can't getting Matheson as have Davis, dunkley and Smith on the bench and all of them went well last week so lots more mooing to do.

Thoughts ladies and gentlemen?

Jimmy · 31/05/2016 at 13:48

Brad Scott – "Todd Goldstein will be picked for this weekend but there's guarantee he will play" – hang on to your hats boys and girls it could get rough.

This may change my fwd line trade to include Tippett as cover. Not a trade I was contemplating this week

    Jimmy · 31/05/2016 at 13:48

    sorry guys NO GUARANTEE he will play

      Todd Goldstein · 31/05/2016 at 14:10

      I will rest this week. Sorry SC fanatics!

        Todd Goldstein · 31/05/2016 at 14:16

        Nah just joking, my mate Wellsy might though

          Todd Goldstein · 31/05/2016 at 14:23

          Nah I will be resting this week possibly longer?

            Todd Goldstein · 31/05/2016 at 14:25

            Just Kidding Wellsy will play, but I will not! Just mucking you all!

    Boltons blues · 31/05/2016 at 14:18

    I've got big cox who can will the void for the week, less points but at least it's not a trade/0

Derek · 31/05/2016 at 14:49

Seeing plenty of teams getting close to "full premium" although some peoples definition of premium may include Libba, Wells, BSmith, Wines, Dawson, Hall etc.

At this stage of the season, it is important to take stock of how many premiums you need and how much more CASH you need to get them.

We should all start with a short list of premiums to fill the remaining places. I need 5, Rance, Hanners, Gray, Lids & Dahlhous. The current value of these 5 is about $2670 (+10% buffer). Calculate the value of your remaining cash cows, I have 13 other players valued at $3390. Assume at full premium you will have 8 other E players at say an average value of $150k (ideally this would be more including an almost premium loophole), 8x $150 = $1200.

Simple maths will let you know how much more cash you need to get your ideal premiums.

For me; $2670 + $1200 – $3390 = $480.

This will increase if my target players increase, factor in 10% plus add the cost of a good M9/F7/D7 loophole.

It starts to give an idea how far you are away from full premium, and maybe reasses your target players (Simpson to Rich etc) or need to still keep
chancing good cash cows?

How is your team looking?

    Julian · 31/05/2016 at 15:10

    what is your team looking like atm Derek?

    The Ranger · 31/05/2016 at 15:54

    I need 6 more and by your math Derek, I'm $500 short.
    I'm thinking I have to get rid of MacP and get Mathieson this week to continue the cash generation.
    Does that make sense Derek?

      The Ranger · 31/05/2016 at 16:25

      And Derek, you should post this in the latest thread. It's a handy bit of maths for everyone to use. Thanks.

Liam · 31/05/2016 at 15:07

double downgrade this week.
Hewett to Mathieson
Benken to collins via tippa.

Next week:

Hartley to Mcveigh
Menadue or Kerridge to Deledio.


MY TWO CENTS · 31/05/2016 at 15:08

Isn't this all selective though based on opinion?
Ie wingard was a top 6 fwd at the start of the year. Is he still one now? Wells would b more of a keeper than wingard at Rd 10.
Same with rocky. Was a top 6 at start but now?

Andrew · 31/05/2016 at 15:08

Brown > Paine
Hartley > Collins?
I know Paine is averaging low so far at least he is on the bubble and would allow me to trade Hartley next week who won't leak cash this week. Thoughts?

Julian · 31/05/2016 at 15:09

Hey guys, just need some advice on my team as I'm not sure what to do for this week. Lost my mid/forward DPP last week due to the 2 trades i made which has made things a bit more tricky.

This is my current team.

Backs: Shaw, Laird, Bartel, Simpson, Adams, DBJ, (Mitch Brown, Brand)

Mid: Danger, Pendles, Gaz, Selwood, Parker, Priddis, Libba, Josh Smith. (Davies, Keays, Macpherson)

Rucks: Goldy and Nic nat (Wyatt)

Forwards: Dusty, Hall, Barlow, Kerridge, Wells, Petracca (Ben Kennedy, Menadue)

I want to trade in Rhys Mathieson this week but not sure for who though?
Have 18 trades and 109k in the bank.

Any help or advice would be appreciated community.


    David · 31/05/2016 at 15:51

    I'm in the same boat as you Julian, want to get Mathieson but my mid is currently, Hanneberry, Ablett, Dangerfield, Libba, Wines, Priddis, Parker and Kerridge (Smith, Keays, MacPherson)
    Smith, Keays and Kerridge all have money to make and MacPherson seems like a waste of a trade.

      Rod · 02/06/2016 at 13:26

      To both of you – easy – Macpherson will be out for the rest of the year (or near enough to it) and then has to win his spot back. Deadwood on your bench – job done!

Winters · 31/05/2016 at 15:39

Hello community looking at my team i don't have many PODs in my lineup and getting rid of Benken this week i feel like it's a great opportunity to bring in a POD and i"m thinking Westhoff,

– He is in 0.8% of teams
– avg of 83 but if you take out the two 20's at the start of the year when port got smashed his avg would then be 97
– has avg 90+ the last 3 years
-Plays fantasy friendly role (gets hitouts, goes loose behind the ball)
-3/5 round avg of 93/97
-with not a lot cows fattening he provides value at 444k
-Would be a reliable D6 or D7
-R14 bye

Just thought i would share my POD with everyone thoughts community

Bolton's Blues · 31/05/2016 at 16:06

Is T Mitchell a ultra premo this year? Seeing as there aren't any rookies this week I'm going to spend my warchest and go the double ultra premo . If i get titch in i can keep 100k in the bank … Is he worth keeping to the end ?
