The Hoff for PM

Opinions on best forward line POD?
I'd love "The Hoff" in my side

@winterjames5

i rate the hoff would love to see him in my lineup but there are better options out there if you spend the extra 50k

Wattsieesq

Jeremy Howe. In 3.4% of teams and tearing it up. Other than that, Roo or Gunston would be my POD picks.

Trev

Howe may not even play this week

Moustachio

I hear Goldie is a late out too

Patch

Had an eye on the Hoff, but he's Port's Mr Fix It. He has a stretch where he plays off half back and averages 100, and then he gets plonked at FF to give up two 50s. With Port's backline in disarray he'll play up the field but I'm not confident enough to bring him in. Would prefer Howe (assuming he plays)

Derek

Rioli. The day he has 30 disposals he will break SC record

Cyril never had more than 29 touches

The Hawks will come home strong

Southern S

Unreliable, will enjoy the day when he breaks an SC record but I doubt he'll be in my team to truly enjoy it. 🙂

Danners

Gunston would be a reliable POD

Southern S

Agreed.

jezzahill

Gunston also a good selection. Had a good 5-6 weeks

Moustachio

Hoff has been a Top8 fwd last 2 years. Solid pickup for the price and huge pod.

Tommo09

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

Keays and Kennedy for Collins and Rocky via DPP
Or
Smith and Brown for Collins and Rocky

@winterjames5

option 1as smith is going better than keays as he is showing that he can go 70-80 each week and benken not playing would get rid of him and then get rid of brown after his bye

Wattsieesq

Smith and Keays both have money to make. If I was getting rid of one, it would be Smith, only because Keays is more bye friendly.

Tommo09

I have way too many rookies on field for my team don't I
17 trades and $76k

D-Train

I don't think you're too far off it to be honest.
8-9 trades to full premo, with the other 8-9 for injuries / late upgrades.

@winterjames5

thinking of going Hewett to Rockliff moving jordan Lewis to M9 thoughts?

Kev

Don't mind it if you've got a DPP amongst those nice. Otherwise having a premo on the pine is a waste

Danners

If you are full premo, good trade

Jake

Good if you have D. McPherson, as you'll be able to loophole every week.

Gibbs

Do I trade in Rance or simpson? And should I hold on getting them in as they have a bye next week, dispite not really being affected by the round 13 bye?

@winterjames5

i would go Simpson over Rance you just know what you get with Simpson and yes hold and get after there bye

Danners

Simpson if you don't have Docherty

annoying old lady

I have both, and I'm a very happy man.

Chuck

Definitely Simpson over Rance. I would until after their round 13 bye to bring either in, however if it fits your bye structure then by all means go for it!

Jacko

thoughts on Suckling fellas?

@winterjames5

personally i think he isnt the worst option for a D6/D7 or FWD swingman 397k probably wont see him much cheaper Avg 94 if you take out his injury affected 17 but my main concern is what role will he play when JJ is back

Jacko

it's for D6, upgrade from Dea.

The Ranger

He's tempting but he hasn't averaged 90+ since 2011.
Maybe his role is different with the Dogs and he'll be more consistent but that's only a maybe.

Chill

He was sub so often at Hawthorn, and his scores are pretty decent considering. I dont think looking at his average over the past few years at hawthorn is a true indication of his abilities.

Neverweaken

Had him since the start. Was about to trade when Murph went down. If you take out injuries his scores are good. At least D6

Patch

I've got him and good grief am I glad I held him. Think he's a ripping pick.

Danners

If you are low on trades and cash, go for it

azza

JJ wont be back playing AFL for another 6-8 weeks IMO.
getting him this week, best case d6, worst case d7/f7

Southern S

Says 3 weeks on the injury list, so maybe 4-5 at worst?

tom

What to do with De Goey?

tom

Whos the best option? Have Zorko, Hall, Barlow. Thinking Deledio or Martin?

Crowmagnon

Dahl is 519k this week.

Danners

Wield the axe

Billioux

went last week to the Chad,Bye depended must go, served purpose

Bellzebub

Looking forward to the CK Thursday stay at home game. As someone in Sydney and with young kids going to the pub for AFL isn’t an option.

Jock you should consider a stay at home game every week for NSW, QLD and similar states for the fans in my boat. Maybe hook it up to anyone not within 100 kms of a venue?

Build it, and they will come.

Tommy V

AGREED that would be unreal if we could do that I'm in the same boat

D-Train

Or those of us more than an ocean away from the closest venue!

Ben

Is trading cripps to rockliff a bad idea?

Gellato

Not worth the side ways trade! Hold Cripps

D-Train

Yes

Tommo09

How is everyone going to get these rookie midfielders next week?
I may have to get rid of Keays and MacP to get Trengove and Jansen and then Kennedy/DBJ for Austin maybe

Patch

We've got three trades next week with the bye – Jensen, Trengrove and Stewart are all in my sights for then.

Tommo09

How can you get them all in your midfield??
I have Hopper, Keays and MacPherson and am planning on keeping Hopper at M9 so have to choose
Am thinking Jansen and Trengove

Leeds17

You know you don't have to get all 3 right? haha.

Tommo09

Yeah I just jp thought heaps of people were getting all three

Youngster

The point is to make money when downgrading so ask yourself how much is a trade worth? If you already have playing rookies who are making cash then maybe the smart play is to hold trades or only get one. At some point we all need to shift from team building to team maintenance as the trades dry up. I'm guessing most of us will have well under 10 trades post byes and that means painting the fence will become a luxury.

Southern S

Just because heaps of people do something doesn't make it right, you're thinking like a sheep not a shepherd.

Dan

Wines to Rockliff looks mighty tempting this week.

Southern S

I wouldn't call it sideways when it's a premo who never seems to break out, to a potential ultra premo that can pump out huge scores.

There's a big risk involved with Rocky, and Wines could get back to some good scoring.

It's up to you I'd be very tempted if you have enough trades.

lachlanmcleanportfolio

its sideways mate

Southern S

Depends on your view of sideways I put players like Rockliff, Ablett, Fyfe and Pendlebury in an elite scoring tier, and if they are in form they are must haves and trading a 450k-500k player for them has to be done sometimes.

JamiesNinjas13

its a sideways trade, they are both premium, one more better than the other but is still a sideways. You're not upgrading from a rookie or mid pricer. Don't make things complicated for the lad lol

Southern S

Don't get me wrong it could easily backfire.

Wattsieesq

Gawn to Goldy looked pretty tempting a couple of weeks ago: )

Leeds17

It didn't though, there's no comparison between Gawn and Wines in the scenario.

Wattsieesq

Yes it did and the scenario is completely comparable. It invoves a sideways trade of two fallen premos. That's why Jock and about 350 other supercoaches made the Gawn to Goldy trade a couple of weeks back. Only around 50 coaches so far have made the Wines to Rocky trade.

Southern S

No because Gawn was the number one ruckmen the week before that trade.

Wines is a spud this year and has never been an ultra premo.

He's not anywhere near the likes of Rockliff when it comes to scoring potential.

It also depends on how many trades they have left you can only afford a couple of sideways trades in a year generally.

Tommo09

What are everyone's upgrade targets?

Mine are:
Def: Simpson, Boyd, JJ
Mid: Selwood
Fwd: Zorko, Dahlhaus and maybe Riewoldt/Kennedy/Deledio

Patch

Looking at GAJ and Neale in the midfield and Zorko up forward. One other forward slot but not sure if that will go to a Tippett another POD or go conservative with a Dusty or Lids.

Kev

Doch, Rance
Pendles
Zorko

Iamme

DEF Laird, MID Neale or Hanners and FOR Welles

Tommo09

It looks like I have a lot then
My fwd isn't as bad as it looks
I have Martin, Buddy, Barlow, Wells, Hall, Kerridge

Liam

Only need two upgrades not three in the forward line IMO.
I've got 5 upgrades to do
DEF: Doch,Simpson,Rance
FWD: Zorko, Lids ( Will leave me with Hall as M9/F7)

Leeds17

Pretty Boring here

Rance, JJ
Hanners or Pendles
Zorko

Keeping a close eye on Kolo & Tom Lynch (GC) as cover options.

I'm pretty far out in the rankings so may have to look unique but pretty unique as it is so may look to cover the most popular players and hope my PODs come good

hedski

Rance/Doc
Pendles
Zorko/Lids

Southern S

Simpson, Gibson
Pendlebury
Martin, Deledio

The Ranger

Rance & Doch
Hanners & Pendles
And a forward.

James

Docherty or JJ
Pendles or Hanners
Dahlhaus and Lids

Mikey

Hi community…thoughts on my team as far as progress goes? Anyone I should be upgrading or giving The flick ?
DEF:Shaw,Rance,Laird,Simpdon,Birchall,AMT
(Collins,Joyce)
MID:Hanners,Pendles,Danger,Priddis,Selwood,
Libba,Smith(Davis,Dunkley,Dmac)
RUC:Goldy,NicNat(Loersch)
FOR:Martin,Montagna,Wells,Greene,Hall
Kerridge(Petracca,Menadue)

I have 8k and 14 trades left! Much help will be appreciated.

Cam_H

Mikey,

I'd be a bit concerned with both your Round 13 bye position as well as lack of Ruck coverage.

Just a wild option to throw into the mix … 'Aaron Hall and Connor Menadue' to 'Majak Daw and Matthew Suckling'

Wait for team selection on Majak in light of Goldstein's likely return.

If Majak is selected and Nic Nat isn't, you've got coverage through your swing. Suckling's scores have been nerfed by his injury round, and could conceivably be in your final 22 or at worst a valuable stepping stone to an ultra-premo. Neither Majak Daw or Matt Suckling have the Round 13 bye which helps somewhat with team balance.

Along the same vein, Daniel Gorringe is an alternative to Majak Daw – has the Round 13 bye and not as good break-even, but seems to have better job security for now.

Best of luck with whatever you choose to do.

Chuck

Teams looking strong mate, id suggest holding this week. Everything looking in good shape to go three down next week and then getting in some premos week after

james

just a quick thing but i think i will be holding Hall even though he is spending more time up forward but one thing i noticed is Ryan 'Bloody' Davis is spending more time in the middle, i think it's just because Hall is injured and coming straight off the bye i feel rocket will move Hall back in the guts ready for the second half of the year, hopefully meaning davis back forward

but i would HOLD! just look what that 1 week off did to gaz looks like the old gaz again after a rest . cheers community

Nathan

Yeah im holding till after his bye to see how he is recovering then after the byes make my decision

HOLLA

Hall had a week off aswell

TRIGGER HAPPY

Going hall-rocky this week. I think?
Can't really see a downside to that.
Rd 14 bringing in montagna
Rd 15 bringing in Dahl
Completes my fwds with
Dusty, zorko, the Chad and wells with petrecca dpp f7
So would have traded hall anyway in 2 weeks out of my fwd line probably to Selwood.
Gonna keep loosing money trade him.now to rocky who may be a bit of a pod as gotta get moving.

Mister_Spock

Is trading Libba out to bring in Rockliff as mad as it sounds??

Libba has been serviceable, but low ceiling this year (ave. 90-100 most rounds competing against other ball magnets at the Dogs). Rockliff on the other hand has the potential to go huge for the remainder of the year…

Tony

I'm actually thinking of doing the same!!!

Sheriffs Big Rig

I'm thinking the same thing!

Derek

Libba kicked winning goal last week that gave him about 40SC points. He struggled until then.

BKW

I wouldn't say he struggled, was at the game and was one of the dogs better players – my personal view is he should be one of the last to be upgraded, he's a solid 100 points per game guy.

Matt

wouldnt say 3 goals 20 possies and 5 coaches votes is struggling to be honest

Danners

If you have a full premo team, go for it

Youngster

Exactly! IF you have a full premo team.

Iamme

IMO Libba is doin enough and at this stage he will be my final mid upgrade….I traded the inconsistent Zaharakis for Rocky

CJudd3Votes

Crouching One shut up about Gunston i'm looking for PODS to get me back in the game and you're bloody giving everything away!

Bobby Singh

Hey community, I've got two trades in mind but not sure which one to go for.

• I'll certainly be going Brown to Collins.

• Should I go Greene to Neale or Hall to Gray?

Bobby Singh

Thanks mate. Also, cheers for the follow on Twitter 😀

Tet

[DEF] Shaw, simpson, bartel, gibbo, howe, laird (collins, Bailey)
[MID] Danger, Pendles, Parker, Shiel, Gaz, Libba, Priddis, Hooper (Dmac, Davis, Dunkley)
[RUC] Gawn, Goldstein (Grimley)
[FWD]Wells, Zorko, Z.Merrett, Hall, Tippa, Petracca (Cox, Paine)

got $583,000 in the war chest with 13 trades left and already used 1 this week by going Brown to Collins

any advice would do well and thoughts on gong for Libba to Rocky or get rid of DMac to brin in rocky or not bring him in entirely?

Tet

Cheers Jock you bloody rippa

Hawker

Hold or Trade, Grant Birchall?? dipping in cash, Jump off for Collins?

lachlanmcleanportfolio

hold imo

Danners

Hold until you have a full premo team and reassess

Southern S

Might be the right move for your team don't see Birchall being anywhere near a top defender.

How many rookies would you be playing on field in defense?

Shake n bake

Is this silly if Nic Nat doesn't get up & Goldy plays should I do a sideways trade I don't have a back up ruckman. Gawn my other ruck & it will also suit my bye rds. I have 19 trades left.

Banned_34

Unless u bring in Tippet as a swingman. I am thinking about it

Shake n bake

For the Nic Nat to Goldy would only need 50k the Tippett option I would have to go Brown to Tippett need 230k. Was goin to get rid of Brown after rd 13 bye getting Tippett now will stuff up my bye rds only have 6 missing in rd 15 if I get Goldy that will make 7. Tnx for the reply thou Jock.

Danners

Upgrade someone in your forward line to a swingman like Tippett

Micky

Community, any thoughts on trades plz, i have 14 trades left with 30 k in the bank

def- shaw, simpson, laird, gibson, pittard, DBJ( ruggles, collins)
mid- danger, pendles, parker, shiel, priddis, mitchell, liberatore, keays, ( davis, macpherson, dunkley)
ruc- gawn, nic nat(goertz)
fwd- martin, montagna, hall, barlow, zorko, j kennedy( petracca, mcgovern)
is there anyway of me bringing in rockliff?
ANY IDEAS COMMUNITY WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!

LJB

You don't have many trades probably hold and don't trade since there is no reason to but to get Rockliff you would have to downgrade McGovern/DBJ and upgrade probably Davis if that even game you enough and hoping Collins can score well replacing DBJ

Patch

Had my eye on Neale for a while gents. First in post-bye

marcus

brought him in last week

lachlanmcleanportfolio

Had him since day 1

Rocksta

My biggest problem this week is trying to stay away from the trade button…………….My rookies are still appreciating, and my trade in targets have high BE's and Rd13 byes.
It's simple…….no trades this week, downgrade Smith to Jansen next week netting $200K, then upgrading Petracca and Wagner ( Rd14 bye) to Monty/Lids and Simpson whom all have Rd 13 byes in Rd 14. Works with the byes, works with maximizing cash etc etc.
Still, I'm finding it impossible to stay away from that trade button this week. I think I've got a [email protected]

The Ranger

I know the feeling Rocksta!
I had planned to hold this week but Rockys 200 has led me to trade and reverse about fourteen times so far this week already!
Those trades look good mate, stay strong!

Rocksta

Cheers Ranger.
Yea trading and then reversing makes me feel better.

Leeds17

Lids and Rance come R14 for me, probaly 2 tradesbefore then just to make a bit more cash but only if the right options appear.

Rocksta

Sounds like a plan.
Good Luck!

lolattack

Just my $0.02 on the Rockliff debate. Say you bring him in, scores a couple of tons and pings his hamstring again. You can use one of the 5-7 trades I’m sure everyone has towards the end of the season for injuries/luxury trades. With his low breakeven he will at least rise 50k, so trading him to another premo shouldn’t be an issue. That’s the worst case scenario. But say you bring him in at 500k and he averages 130 (very plausible) for the rest of the season like he did last season after a long injury layoff? You’d be laughing. So I guess it’s a risk, but I think the best case scenario is far more good than the worst case scenario is bad.

Southern S

Can see the attraction to bringing him in for sure, and we bring players like Fyfe into our team every year who are arguably more prone to injury than Rockliff (even prior to Fyfe's leg this season)

I started with Rockliff and traded him out earlier in the season, this is my biggest problem that I may waste 3 trades on Rockliff, and for what? May be just chasing points.

After pondering the move may trade him back in, I'm also going to have a strong M9 in Liberatore after bye round 13 when I trade a rookie up to Pendlebury, so maybe I am in a position to do the trade, and even if he misses a few games I'll have solid back up.

At the moment I have traded Zaharakis to Rockliff, and Hartley to Collins have to say it does look exciting having Rockliff in my team but it's a nervous excitement, not sure if I will reverse it by the end of the week.

Youngster

Sometimes you just have to roll the dice. I started with him, traded him to Robbie Grey and then traded Rocky back inm just in time for him to ping his hammy. So I had Grey and Rocky on the bench but scraped by and am now getting the rewards. He's already had his best score that is for sure but quality players will repay the faith. All aboard the Rocky Rollercoaster!!

Southern S

Yep but having those two on your bench that long probably punished your rank did it not?

Should work out for you in league wins hopefully though.

Youngster

Yep! But I always play for rank and felt that in the long run, I needed to save trades. I'd already traded in JJ by this stage and then when he went down, traded to Suckling who immediately rolled his ankle. The gods are punishing…

Maccadog

kade koladjanij to suckling a good trade
feeling kk is costing me bigtime

Danners

If you have the trades

Chevy

Dilemma- I have both nic nat and goldy!
I'm am truly a nervous, quivering mess….

Tommo09

What does everyone classify as a POD in ownership?

Tommo09

That's not me by the way

@winterjames5

usually under 10% but i usually go under 5% ownership my PODs are Enright (2.6%), Byrne (6.7%), Shiel (8.5%), Zieball (3.7%), Lewis (2.8%), Boomer (2.1%)

Brent

I'm thinking of getting Heath shaw…thinking he would make a great POD….thoughts?

Southern S

lol

smart as s

nice one

Coach

You won't be getting a game this week Brent.

emjay

selwood is back run with him

Southern S

One massive quarter?

Jay

can Yeo and KK turn it around?

Southern S

Highly doubtful.

Tommo09

Selwood or Neale for my last mid spot?

@winterjames5

If tipungwuti is rested and NicNat doesnt play is it worth trading Tipungwuti to Lycett or Tippert for cover or do i just cop the zero and hope he comes back next week

Southern S

Many factors to consider.

Michael Arcari

Im going to wait one more week on rocky

Southern S

Good move as he won't increase in price that much anyway.

Projected 104 and 22k profit.

Redgumwon

I'm with you Southern. All that's gold doesn't glitter. I remember last year and the burn left by Rocky not once but twice. Crouching should have given us a proverb about Rocky and the Garden of Eden

Leeds17

I've seen you say that waiting a week is a good idea in numerous posts I just don't get it, surely he's either going to get injured or he's not, his scoring ability isn't in question so what does waiting a week tell you? (honestly trying to learn feel I must be missing something??)

for the record I'm not bringing him in.

Rocksta

I agree.
You either do, or you forgo him for the season based on his injury history.
If you decide to take the risk, this week is the week to bring him in!

Southern S

He's obviously been itching to get back and came back and absolutely smashed it, We've already seen him have niggles and injuries this year multiple times, who knows he may have pulled up sore from that game.

If he ends up injured again next game it's going to hurt owners a lot more than the small amount of extra cash it will cost to trade him in next week.

I have him in my team right now but I'm still not decided on whether I will reverse it.

I can fully understand wanting to wait a week and support the decision by Michael I'm not going to try and convince him to lock him in this week.

Moustachio

If he gets 120 he goes up by like 30k. He is up against Freo remember, could be huge.

If he gets 200 and I don't have him, I will delete my team.

Rocksta

Lol

Billioux

He such the ultimate conundrum, has been 4 ever. Not being smug,however i glad i held him. good luck with the coin toss.

Bretto

R Gray, Selwood or Rockliff?

lachlanmcleanportfolio

Rock

Southern S

I think you have them listed as least risky to most risky from left to right.

The higher risks could potentially score more though so tough choice.

Danners

Selwood if you want a reliable midfielder

gillie44

How close do you guys think you have to be to the overall leader to have a go at it?

Rocksta

Still more than half a season to go, but I would have thought you'd want to be in the top 1000 to have a chance.
It opens up by the fact that first place is some 160 points ahead of second, and then starts banking up thereafter.

Moustachio

Calculate relative to top20. Pretty sure mr brad is hooning through trades

Billioux

correct. current leader cant win imo

Johnny

I think it's more about points then rank. Be interesting to know though..

gillie44

Defenders: Shaw, Bartel, Gibson, Boyd, Rance, B/Smith Bench: Ruggles, Collins
Midfielders: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Parker, Ward, Selwood, Liberatore, Young, Sam Mitchell
Mid Bench: Davis, Smith, Williams
Rucks: Gawn, Nic Nat Bench: Grimley
Forwards: Martin, Zorko, Greene, Hall, Wells, Wingard Bench: Menadue, Petracca

Thoughts on my team? Any advice would be awesome thanks

tom

I'd probably hold. You have a very strong team.How many trades have you used?

Steeeve

Early days but who do you prefer as a VC option this week? Rocky or Gaz?
Planning to keep the C on Pendles, bloke is like a safety harness.

Southern S

Rocky at the G?

Gazza

Go Rockey

Browny

Here's my current team:
D: shaw, docherty, laird, Simpson, rich, byrne-jones (collins, tucker)
M: danger, Hannabery, ward, Pendles, ablett, Libba, gray, Davis (Keays, McPherson, smith)
R: goldy, Martin (grimley)
F: Dahl, buddy, hall, wells, wingard, kerridge (petracca, brown)
17 trades left and 50k in the bank.

Thinking of getting rid of smith and brown but I am concerned about lack of fwd rookies on the bubble. Is there any worth jumping on this week?
My other option is to bring in mathesion/ Stewart or Jansen for smith. Tippet in for brown and then swing tippet to ruck and bench Martin for now.
Any suggestions?

Gazza

DEF : Shaw, Simpson, Smith, Tippa, Laird, Adams (DBJ, Brown)
MID : Hannebery, Pendles, Selwood, Zaharakis, J.P Kennedy, Libba, Priddis, Hopper (Smith, Davis, Keays)
RUC : Gawn, NicNat (Grimley)
FWD : Zorko, Merrett, Martin, Kerridge, Wells, Hall (Schache, Petracca)

Thoughts on trades
Zaharakis and Hall
to
Collins and $750,000 ??????

Southern S

Could take a chance on Rocky if you have enough trades?

I'd be playing Davis or Smith over Hopper at M8 too.

Bolton's Blues

if you had of said that earlier in the year, i wouldve called you braindead haha (the playing Davis part)

Southern S

Yep absolutely.

Hopper has another tough games against the swannies midfield this week so I can't see him going big, looks to be a slow burner I'm surprised 27% of teams jumped on such a high priced rookie at that time of the year.

Bolton's Blues

im happy i avoided and Davis (and dunkley for that matter) have repaid the faith and starting to play some good footy and get some points for my bench

Leeds17

If Tom Lee gets a gig this week think I'll bring him in for Brown otherwise nothing's really appealing trade wise… Quiet week like this spells Thursday carnage

Redgumwon

I don't like Tom Lee's job security. He may have farted around Richo as the kid can't seen to get a game at all

Leeds17

No Fisher, Dempster & now Goddard too if he's not picked now he'll never be.

Redgumwon

Fisher and Dempster are listed at 3 to 4 weeks and Goddard is done for the year. I still don't think that Lee will play that many games to rise enough in cash for a later upgrade. I think if you take him you'll get stuck with him. Another train of thought then might be to keep Brown as a low scoring cheap back up in defence and save a valuable trade for a player who will make you more cash

Southern S

I'm probably going to keep a couple of players like that, thinking probably AMT and Byrne from Carlton due to guaranteed JS.

For other spots may even want a donut on each line to loophole, of course do these types of moves after the byes.

Leeds17

How many games would he have to play at a 50 ave to make 100k? That's all I'd need from him either the 165k odd I'd make from down grading Brown.

Southern S

100k isn't worth the two trades.

The Ranger

To anyone that's got Aaron Young….are we holding him til the bye?
Or swapping him for Rocky this week?

Southern S

Young is scoring quite well I'd be tempted to hold off as trading in Rocky on the back of one game is risky.

Can see the attraction of the trade though only 50k to upgrade, go with your gut.

Pinidu

I'll be trading in one of: Ward, Shiel, Selwood or Parker this week…budget is 570K for a midfielder…your thoughts community? Also, I'll be downgrading Hewett this week, is Jansen the best option? I feel that Stewart from Hawthorn has literally no job security at all.

Thanks in advance

lachlanmcleanportfolio

Ward

judd0

I also really like Ward as option.

Redgumwon

Shiel I've had since round 1. He's really flying now and ultra consistent with the scores. I also have Selwood and it's been a bumpy ride to date. Last week showed how the Selwood highs and lows can go. I've had Ward in the Draft game all year and have been a little disappointed with his scores. They have there ups and downs but don't go nearly anywhere as high as Selwood's when on song

Don't do it Jock and Crouching remember the shitstalk.

If adams continues to average around 85, is he a keeper as D6? I plan to come out of the byes full premium apart from adams, and with 9 trades left. But as long as adams is performing well, I'll hold those 9 and reassess things closer to the finals and after the injury carnage that will surely occur, occurs. Good plan?

Jess_coach

With all fairness, he is averaging more than rich, who many have and are probably keeping. And collins and brand on the bench could be good loopholes

Southern S

I'll be holding Adams as long as possible too Jess. He has the round 14 bye so hopefully everyone trades him out during the byes and he becomes a POD too.

Jess_coach

Great to hear southern. Here's hoping 9 trades post-bye is more than enough for injuries, so some luxury trades can be made later in the season.

Rocksta

I'm holding Adams at D6 as well Jess until finals.
I'll also be full premo post byes but will have 11 trades.
If Injury doesn't strike too harshly on the run into finals, I'll look to using some of those 11 on getting rid of KK( definitely), and Hall ( if he doesn't improve). I dont want to go into finals with less than 5 trades.

Moustachio

Depends if you have the big scoring defenders yet eg Simpson, Doc. If you bring in someone that will av 105 that is a lot of points more over 11 games. 9 trades post byes is pretty good, can afford to be a bit luxurious imo.

I have Doc and will be getting Simpson after r13 bye. Would like to keep Adams for bench cover if finances allow, but may not (should be worth close to 400k)

Billioux

I have posted this recently and only imo 85avg good enough for d6

Rocksta

Aside from his healthy average, he has really looked solid after coming back from injury. I can see him pumping out 100's again soon enough as his match fitness gets back to peak levels.
As above, I'll be getting rid of KK after byes well before I even think about moving Adams on.

Jess_coach

Ive got shaw, simpson, Docherty and bartel.

Tippa will become rance (or laird), so hoping adams at d6 is fine for at least a while

Johnny

Hi Jess how are you positioned in ranks atm? Still around the mark?

brettijewellerycomau

Tell me your thoughts on these trades

Hall to Robbie Gray (Anyone 570k or less if so who)
Josh Smith to Dahl

Not sure If I should get rid of Hall because I bet this week he will pump out 120+

Rocksta

Answered your own question.
Keep Hall for now

brettijewellerycomau

Whats the chance of Hall producing another shit score…?! 6 Straight weeks of sub 100 scores proves he is not a keeper… Would you consider this an upgrade.

Cam_H

Breakeven of 138 in an away game against the Tige's, then zero for the bye, then Hawthorn down in Tassie.

Great podcast guys the Rocky question is ball tingling.
Have been painting the fence last 5 weeks have brought in Simmo Chopstix Pridda Tippet and Chad.
This week I'm gettin down and dirty and removing a few filthy undy stains.
Menapoo ==> Beech (Crows m/f rook loophole check their run home)
Brown ==> Suckling.
Allows me to keep dpps open and keep Tippa for a bit.
Team will be.

Shaw Simmo Gibbo (Collins)
Suckling(F) Smith(M) Adams(F) (Rug)

Danger Gaz Priddis (Smith)
Parker Jelwood Gray (Keays)
Libba Zaha (Beech)(F)

Goldy Gawn (Loersch)(F)

Chops(M) Barlow (M) Hall (M) (Petracca)(M)
Tippet (R) Chad Kedge (M) (Tippa)(D)

Still some worries there but justa gotta back em.
Think I've still got enough cash generation for a few good trades any thoughts all good.
Glug.

The Ranger

Tenner says you've been tempted by that Zaha > Rocky trade Hedski!
You've done a lovely paint job on the fence by the way.

hedski

Cheers Ranger. Yes very tempted by said trade but I want to try and bring in Pendles and move Zaha to m9 and loop him with Libba.
Could be hard to knock back Rocky if he's killing it still next couple of rounds tho.

The Rangers

Yeah I think I'm gonna pull the trigger early and bring him in for A.Young.
It will mean I can then use Libba to get to Pendles or Hanners over the byes.

judd0

Great casting of the pod as usual.
Do we think Matty Boyd is a solid option down back?
Has had a really nice 5 weeks and has the rnd 14 bye which best suits my backline.

Danners

Boyd is a solid option in defence

Johnny

Is 3 from one team too many?
Selwood Bartel danger…

50_shades

I don't think so Johnny. Bartel and Selwoods prices make them pretty hard to pass on, especially if you trust their effort in the run home.

Stevo

Another ripper Podcast. Have 16 trades and $92k and very tempted – J.Smith & Keays to Rocky & Jansen. Do it this week or wait for next week? Would take me to full premo an all lines except defence (3 short if you include the spud KK). I know Smith & Keays have more cash to make but so tempting. Help!

Kev

I'd wait, Stevo. Smith still has plenty left in the tank and it's worth waiting on Jansen to reach the bubble

Stevo

Thanks Kev. I will try and hold off.
What about KK to Suckling? Hate sideways trades but he has been terrible.
