Patric

My team at the moment

Back: Docherty, Bartel, Rich, B Smith, Talia, Laird (B Williams, Collins)

Mid: Danger, Ablett, Barlow, Rockliff, Parker, Libba, Hannebery, Trengrove (MacPherson, Stewart, Hopper)

Ruck: Gawn, Goldstein (Derrickx)

Forward: Zorko, Martin, Kerridge, Wells, Wright, Petracca (S Reid, Willis)

What areas should I upgrade and who should I bring in, $74 000 in the bank.

BangBang

To Concas is the bonkers. Welcome

Dice

Simpson this week. Nick Riewoldt or Montagna next week. Riewoldt for pod. Scored lot of 100s this year

Jason Di Staso

Upgrade libba to Neale or rocky?

Patric

already have rockliff….

Derek

the one thing i like about Neale is that fremantle play 4 of their last 5 games (5 of the last 7) at Home.

do you have either Barlow or Zorko? i would spread the team, if you have zorko i wouldn't get rocky and same if you have barlow i wouldn't get another fremantle player.

steve1

Don't forget Ross Lyon always like to rest his players before finals. oh wait…

Southern S

Neale is an absolute gun, his 50 score was an anomaly. He racks up the stats.

Steeeve

I'd choose Rocky personally but can't go wrong either way

Danners

Neale, should be able to keep it up for the rest of the season

CashCows

Neale may be carrying an injury according to Rossy, and didn't train with main group. Worth considering.

David T

B: Shaw, Simpson, Gibson, Rich, Adams, Laird (Tucker, Collins)

C: Danger, Pendles, Ward, Ablett, Liberatore, Priddis, Gray, Rockliff (Stewart, Trengove, Smith)

R: Goldy, Martin (Cox)

F: Zorko, Montagna, Wells, Barlow, Kerridge, AMT (Petracca, Grimley)

13 Trades | $452,200

What trades would you guys recommend? Currently, I'm looking at doing…

1. AMT > Rance
(Should I trade AMT or Adams? Should I look at Docherty instead of Rance? Hm..)

2. J. Smith > T.Phillips
(Need this cash for other trades and it opens a nice swingset/loophole if Phillips gets dropped. Smith looks likely to lose value anyway.)

3. Tucker/Collins (via FWD swing) > D.Martin, Deledio, Z.Merrett?
(Both of the Freo boys are probably increasing in price this week and Deledio and Martin could both conceivably drop in price due to high BE and M.Robinson, respectively. However, doing this trade a week early allows me more flexibility with trades next week and could net me some extra points, as I'll be able to play Martin/Deledio on field for Cox/Wells rather than having two players benched. Is the extra money this week worth the potential points? Merrett an option as I want to bring him in next week, but could do it this week to keep the flexibility of three trades next week?)

*** Also considering Rich to Docherty either this week or next, as it will allow me to field 18 players during Rd 15. Kerridge to Merrett will also happen next week.

Thoughts? Thanks.

Jimmy

Docherty and Martin are looking as must haves.
Eventually both AMT and Adams will have to go so do not stress too much about that one.

Jimmy

Pettraca to Phillips
Wines to Crotchin and
Tippa to Simpson

Thoughts community?

Delicious

Like it but just thinking Petracca may still be good for a couple more weeks

Tiges

Petracca is good for a few more weeks but we would have a better indication on whether this is a good trade or not depending on the lay out of the rest of your team.
Also, better options than Cotchin.

BKW

Agree hate the Cotchin move, get an mid if upgrading wines, don't mess around

BKW

An elite mid that should say!

Derek

Wines to Cotchin is sideways. if looking for a POD i'd recommend Sloane

Steeeve

Good call on Sloane though you seem to be recommending him to every bugger. Might not be much of a pod if you keep it up haha.

Derek

no-one listens to me Steeeve, otherwise everyone would have JPK instead of Parker 😉

Boltons blues

I reckon Derek, please stop suggesting Sloane, he's been in my side for a month or so and only let me down once

Jimmy

Thanks for the feedback guys. Yeah I'm gonna stick fat with Wines at the moment and hold on to Petracca as well. I was able to trade Dunkley out for Phillips which provided me with a handy mid/fwd link and enough cash to trade Tippa to Simpson. Wines to Cotchin points wise imo was an upgrade based on how they have been performing but given i dont have pendles yet, he has to be the man eventually. I couldn't afford him and that is why i was looking at cotch but i refuse to settle.

My team at the moment is:

Def: Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Rance, Laird, Z. Williams, Collins and Joyce
Mid: Dangerfield, Ablett, Shiel, Cripps, Parker, Zaharakis, Wines, Liberatore, Jansen, Phillips and Macpherson
Ruck: Gawn, Goldstein and Grimley
Fwd: Martin, Zorko, Barlow, Gunston, Hall, Kerridge, Petracca and Wyatt

Tommo09

Def: Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Laird, Rance, Collins, (TIPPA, AUSTIN)
Mid: Danger, Pendles, HANNEBERY, Ablett, Rockliff, PRIDDIS, LIBBA, PARKER (Hopper, TRENGOVE, MacPherson)
Ruc: GAWN, Goldy (GRIMLEY)
Fwd: Martin, Wells, Barlow, Hall, Kerridge, Phillips (PETRACCA, FRANKLIN)

9 trades left after my 3 trades this week and also $174

Thoughts?

Tiges

Team looking pretty good but also pretty stock standard, who is your POD that will differentiate you from other teams?

I'd be looking at trading out Petracca/Kerridge to a premium FWD asap and Tippa up to a premium defender.

Good luck for the rest of the season mate.

Tommo09

JJ and Nick Riewoldt
Not anything great

Tommo09

Also Neale but I'm not sure if he will be a POD when I get him

Derek

team looks very solid. what is your rank?

Tommo09

Not good 3072

Derek

from there, if you are looking at climbing the rankings, you will need some significant POD's

Tommo09

Thanks
As I have said I am looking at JJ, Riewoldt and Neale
Are they good PODs?

Southern S

Yep, although I wouldn't have Reiwoldt in my team personally too risky, prefer Lids even though he was injured early in the year, and last year too.

My logic is not logical but hey.

Tommo09

How many trades will I need to get to full premo after this week?

Who to loophole ?

Loophole Laird this Thursday night vs North @ Adelaide oval or Pendles Friday night vs Freo @ MCG ??????

Cheers jock and the bois

Lachy

pendle or shaw

Jimmy

one think i would think about is if Ross Lyon uses Barlow to tag Pendles. If so maybe stay clear, but then again he could go to sidebottom. Seeing as its your VC option it is worth taking the punt

Steeeve

Peddles every day of the week.
Laird is a great asset in any defence line. Not a VC option for mine.

micky

Community, plzz help me with trades this week, i have 10 trades left with 20k in the bank
def- shaw, simpson, laird, pittard, gibson, DBJ( collins, lee)
mid- danger, pendles, priddis, parker, shiel, s.mitchell, liberatore, dunkley( keays, trengove, macpherson)
ruck- gawn, goldstein
fwd- martin, montagna, zorko, barlow, merret, j kennedy( hall, petracca)
ANY IDEAS COMMUNITY WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!

Pinidu

Downgrade Dunkley and upgrade DBJ

patricmassey

definitely have ti upgrade DBJ, i suggest downgrading petracca to phillips than upgrading DBJ to docherty. other than that your team looks pretty solid

Cam_H

Wow – looks very similar to Micky's team above.
Maybe let's not put the same team up twice in a thread with a different username?

LJB

If you are wanting to keep hall as cover then I would say get rid of petraca to Phillips if he is picked this week or s.reid and upgrade Dunkley because a midfield rookie loses more points for you than a defence rookie especially as dbj is a quality rookie option

Jimmy

If you want to save on your trades; id get rid of macpherson for phillips. Then move phillips on to your bench in the forward line and bring in hall into your midfield. If hall continues to play like a potato in the next few weeks generate some more cash by trading down on dunkley and upgrading hall.

Tiges

This week I'm looking at trading out Libba, Tippa and Kerridge for Dusty, Docherty and Sloane.
This leaves me with $300k left in the kitty to upgrade Hopper to Haneberry next week and would leave me with 16 players playing and two doughnuts… I accidentally traded in S.Reid instead of Philips last week so it has left me with one extra doughnut next week than what I would have preferred..
I need to upgrade Hopper next week to avoid THREE doughnuts but if I upgrade to Haneberry I'll only have $20k left in the kitty..
Any other tips? should I upgrade to different players this week? Deledio instead of Dusty?

DEF:
Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Boyd, Gibson, Laird // Williams, Collins.

MID:
Danger, Ward, Sloane, Gaz, Priddis, Mitchell, Gray, Hopper // Stewart, Jansen, Reid.

RUCK:
Goldy, Gawn // Cox.

FWD:
Zorko, Dusty, Montagna, Wells, Barlow, Wingard // Petracca, Wyatt.

LJB

If you're ok for players in this weeks bye, have you thought of holding off on a trade such as tippa to docherty especially since docherty is so expensive so you can have tipa play next week, also depending on where you have spare spots on field next week

Steeeve

So if all goes to plan my side after the byes will be:

Shaw, Doc, Laird, Rance, Gibson, Kade Kolo (Collins, Ruggles)
Danger, Pendles, Hanners, Gaz, Selwood, Rocky, Libba, Wines (Trengove, Stewart, MacPherson)
Goldy, Gawn (Grimley)
Zorko, Dusty, Lids, Wells, Wingard, Hall (Petracca, Phillips)

What would your next priorities be? I should have 100K and 9 trades still left.

Derek

your team looks alot like many others, except for KK (not the best POD i've seen). depends on what you are wanting to do, any chance of slipping a Sloane or a JPK in the mids or Mcveigh in defence, all are less than 4% owned.

otherwise team is good. just need a few DPP to create some swingsets

Steeeve

Thanks and definitely agree. My current plan is Petracca down to any cheapie. Then Trengrove to Dahlhaus. That way Hall can become my M9/F7.

Then Collins and Ruggles down to cheapie Def and premo. Will then make Kolo my D7.

Ruck coverage will still be a problem.

LJB

Ruck coverage can kill people in late rounds with no back up what about petracca to Lycett since Nic Nat is out for pretty much rest of the year he will be a good fwd/ruck option

micky

community i have a big problem since i traded in z merret to win in my league this week meaning i have aaron hall sitting on my bench at f7. What should i do with him, should i downgrade him to phillips perhaps. Any ideas community because im in a bit of a hole haha.

Tiges

Just keep him as an F7/M9 for the season mate? Great bench cover and just make sure your F8 isn't playing.

Pinidu

Community, I need some help with my trades this week:

D: Shaw, Simpson, Laird, Gibson, Rance, ADAMS (Collins,Lee)
M: Dangerfield, Pendles, GAJ, HANNERBERY, PRIDDIS, GRAY, LIBERATORE, MILLS (DUNKLEY, Phillips, TRENGOVE)
R: GAWN, Goldstein (Wyatt)
F: Martin, Barlow, Greene, Hall, Wells, Kerridge (PETRACCA, Paine)
CAPITAL = Bye

Already traded AMT > Tom Phillips.
Now have 362K in the bank. Should I go Adams > Docherty? I also want to bring in a premium midfielder (Neale or Selwood) but their bye next week is holding me back….

Any advice or thoughts is much appreciated. Cheers.

Tiges

I'd definitely be looking at upgrading Adams to a premium mid,.. Docherty is the number #1 option for sure but to save some cash you could also consider Bartel to pocket the extra $50k!
I'd also be looking at downgrading Mills to S.Reid this week which ensures another playing player and also gets another DPP swing in your mids, and then with the extra cash I'd upgrade Libba to a premium mid from last week OR if you have enough players playing next week I'd look at trading in Neale/Selwood.

You should also ensure though that you keep Petracca available to be traded up at M8 by swinging Reid/Philips to F7 or else I think you won't get enough cash generation in time to get a full premium team and you may struggle having enough to upgrade Kerridge to a premo? May be better off leaving him at F8.

Good luck for the rest of the season.

Sana

Laird & Dusty OR
Simpson & Lids

Sana

OR Laird and Lids for that matter!

Derek

Laird is a must. Crows have a great run home. He is only in 14% of teams (almost a POD) and $50k cheaper than Simmo

Southern S

Agreed.

Moustachio

CD hate Laird for some reason

Southern S

Is that why he got a 112 last time he played?

CD doesn't hate/like anyone it's just supercoach scoring is complex unlike fantasy.

ethan

Dustin and Laird for ceiling
Simpson and Lids for consistency
Option one for me

Southern S

Laird and Lids? Both low ownership.

Dusty has been scoring very well, I have both so don't have to make a touch choice there 😉

Dusty in 40%+ teams.

patricmassey

simpson and dusty if you can

Sana

Thanks fellas, some food for thought

micky

Community, wats the better option
dunkley to ablett or DBJ to rance

Derek

both should be done. however the Suns are heading to a cold & windy tassie this weeked to play the Hawks. will be tough going for Gaz and his boys. Tigers are at home to a pretty poor Lions team.

Jimmy

Rance is a gun but hasnt been setting the world on fire with his scores; id look at docherty as an option if you dont already have him. Otherwise, i would easily choose ablett over rance. It is a no brainer if you ask me. Ablett has the higher scoring potential and you are getting rid of a lessor player in dunkley as opposed to DBJ

Jeremy

For kerridge should i get Deledio, zorko, barlow or nick riewoldt. Thoughts?

Danners

If you need someone now, Deledio

patricmassey

i would probably go barlow, cheapest he will be and deledio is set to drop in price, but as danners said if you need someone now get deledio seeing he has had his bye

Jimmy

Zorko has been the best and most consistent to date. If however you do not have enough players to cover his bye next week, i would strongly consider Lids. Also is getting rid of Kerridge a must? If you were gonna get rid of him, it would of been last week. He has a low break even and will increase in price and has already had his bye. I would hold for a couple more weeks and then go Zorko

Bill

Is anyone holding on to Hall?

Leeds17

Assuming he's back this week. Yes.

tdesmaele

Yep. Sounds like he is back this week. There's an article on AFL.com.au

patricmassey

i traded him out four weeks ago but if you've held him until now you may as well keep him

Clem

coachkings this thursday boys

Tommo09

How do we play at home Coachkings this weekend?
Thanks community

Tommo09

I mean where is the "play at home" section

Kev

Jock will announce it in the week

Supercrud

I'm keen to go give it a go to. I signed in but no play at home option yet.

Tommo09

Thanks Jock

patricmassey

hey jock, worst part about coachkings IMO is having to wait one more year until i'm 18, can't wait to be able to play and hopefully win some cash

Jacko

Kerridge/Lyon – Lids
Keays – Philips

Should I do these trades this week or wait till after bye rounds? Also thinking Brodie – Laird?

Southern S

Wouldn't trade Lyons he's had his bye, got a 105 last game he played, low ownership. Crows have a good run home.

Jimmy

Kerridge and Lyons both playing and have low break evens. Therefore hold.
Keays will play this week and will go up in value. Phillips will play also but his price wont change as its only his second game.
Therefore trade keays next week for phillips as keays will have his bye and phillips will be on bubble

Davo

Brilliant podcast fellas, makes the drive home from work something to look forward to and have a decent laugh, welcome back into my team Stefan Martin, you get to join Rockliff as yet again I retrade someone.

Tommo09

Tippa or Adams out for Rance?

ethan

Tippa for me
Breakeven 83 and bye this week

patricmassey

i dont think rance is a good option, theres got to be better ones. who do you have in backline atm?

John

Guys need some help with my team:

Def: Shaw, Laird, Simpson, Rich, AMT, DBJ (Collins, Ruggles)

Mid: Danger, Parker, Selwood, Libba, Neale, Sam Mitchell, Pendlebury, Ablett (Snadden,Davis, Mathiseon)

Ruck: Gawn, Goldy (Grimley)

Fwd: zorko, hall, wells, kerridge,wright, petracca (rose, cox)

I have 10 trades left, was wanting downgrade someone then upgrade just not sure who. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers

Cam_H

Peter Wright or Matthew Wright in the Forward line?
Given you're looking for a 'fence paint', I'd consider DBJ and Davis to Phillips and a premium defender at $500K or under – McVeigh, Rance, Enright, etc. Phillips in the middle gives you a Fwd/Mid swing.
Best of luck with whatever you decide.

John

It's Matthew wright and yeah I think I may I do that. I could get docherty too? And also are you sure about Davis because couldn't he make a bit more money still?

Cam_H

John,
If you can upgrade DBJ to 'say' Rance this week (I don't know your bank account) then 'sure' – hang on to Davis. His BE is very likely to be achieved, but he's done 90%-plus of his price elevation. If you need the cash for the upgrade, then you would look at sacrificing that potential $30,000-ish for the points that the upgrade will theoretically deliver.
Matty Wright to a fallen forward premo' like Buddy or Joey could also be on the radar. As a Crows fan, I'm strangely pleased that Kerridge and Wright have found success at Carton, particularly after we've taken back those SA-greats; Eddie and Sauce, and hopefully Troy Menzel's going to deliver at some point! Hopefully win-win trades.
I'm not professing to know it all on the SC-front – just the way I see the landscape at the moment.
Once again, best of luck with whatever you decide.

Leeds17

I'd be looking to keep AMT and one of Kerridge or Wright as bench cover

ethan

Final Stef Martin verdict community
Yes or no?

Jono

Yes! Stoked so far pulling the trigger on Nic Nat to Stef Martin last week…pocketed $170k and 142pts!

Kev

West will be back. He's not injured as far as I know?

tophawk

I grabbed him last week. Definately not complaining. Nice ruck POD for a bargain price. If you do not have him now, probably best to wait after his bye now. Cheers

Boo-urns

No!! One good score (against a ruck-less eagles), doesn't equal consistency. Too risky. When west returns he'll start to pump out mediocre scores again

Danners

Depends on where you are ranked. Massive risk if you are in the top 1%, but if you want to get inside that, could be worth the risk. Just remember, he did play a team without its two best ruckmen

patricmassey

no, not reliable but if you dont have cash to spare than you might have to go with him

Dave

Sign me up! Martin this week for Tippett. Fortune favours the brave.

*not a guarantee

Moustachio

Thing is, everyone is saying he played a side with B grade ruck… But just about every ruckman in the comp is either bad, in bad form, or injured. Really don't know how much harder it will get for him!

Lachy

Conca definitely not a good pick IMO.. Yes he can play a backup role… but he is a shitwaste

Jaydos

hey community,
currently ranked in at 81st overall.. and have a dilemma. looking at using 3 trades this week and going petracca to deledio, liberatore to philips and ruggles to either rance or docherty. This will leave me with one more rookie player on my field, the obvious case is to go the doch but that will require me to most likely use 3 trades to get my final mid premo in which is most likely to be hannebery. however if i get rance in this week, save the extra 100k it will leave me with only 2 trades to do for a full premo team and 8 trades for the remaining season. the final question is, is docherty worth that extra one trade come seasons end? all input will be helpful. thanks community, over and out.

Cam_H

Jaydos,
Only take advice from people who are ranked 1 to 80 at this point!

tophawk

Are you envious Cam H?

Cam_H

Anatomical features aside … 'yes'! ;O)

Although in fairness to me, two weeks ago I had the highest scoring team for all Crows supporters, so if all goes to shite this year, at least I have that moment in the sun.

tophawk

I am envious too. LOL A ranking like that means you are in a real hunt to win some serious $$$$.

Always nice to be top of the pops of your team supporter for the round.

As a Hawks supporter (No surprises there), I have not pulled that off yet. Call it a work in progress. hehe

Cheers mate

Jaydos

hahah no need to be envious boys, pure luck this game is. Just need some bloody help!

The Ranger

I'm a couple of thousand places back from you Jaydos but have been tossing up the Rance/Doc question too.
Think I'm gonna spend the coin and get Doc, I just can't go past that 110 average.

Neverweaken

Had Docherty since the start so wasn't an issue for me. But if it was now I would probably say no. But with you that close you need every point you can get. You have enough trades so I would say get docherty

Phil

Personally I'd hold off Docerty for one more week because Carlton make the dreaded trip to West Sydney. I think Ruggles can wait another week too, he just scored 83 and doesn't have his bye for another week yet. In answer to your question I do think it's worth getting Doc instead of Rance because he is averaging 10 more points per week, I just wouldn't do it yet.

james

team is: advice would be appreciated

DEF: Shaw, Docherty, Laird, Enright, Suckling, Collins (Tucker, Lee)
MID: Dangerfield, Ablett, Hannebery, Ward, Shiel, Priddis, Zieball, Lewis (Dahlhaus, Hewett, Gresham)
RCK: Gawn, Martin (Lorensch)
FWD: Martin, JJK, Hall, Boomer, Westhoff, Petracca (Tipungwuti, Wyatt)

Have 40.5k in the bank, going for league wins so thats why i have so many PODs

tophawk

Hi community.

With 9 rounds to go, I am currently 614 points off the lead and ranked at 502. (28,807 points)

My strategy now and in recent weeks is to accumulate a few more PODS to roll the dice and keep pushing higher. Got lucky last week grabbing Stefan Martin for Nic Nat. This week I am looking at two upgrade trades. Marcus Adams to Brett Deledio and Tom Liberatore to Rory Sloane. Sloane at 554K is great value witht he crows finals bound and a great draw at the back end of the season.

With Libba having the bye this week and playing the Swannies the week after, I just feel it is time to fold him at 500K. Marcus Adams seems to be running out of steam. Last 3 games delivered poor scores and with the Swannies after the bye, it is time to cull the warrior from the West. Marcus, you have been brilliant contributor to my team. THANK YOU.

Deledio has to come in this week at his stupidly low price of 524K even with his highish 129 BE score. With the Tigers playing Brizzie at home this week I expect Lids to get close or even exceed that current BE. Gonna pull the trigger this week.

Can I still win this bloody thing in my current position with my current trading strategy? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Southern S

I think you can as long as all your PODs in Martin, Sloane and Lids all fire for the rest of the year.

That would also hinge on the top teams having a bit of bad luck, all is possible.

tophawk

Cheers Southern. Its up to the gods from here. All I can do now is to trade boldly, and hope I have the right PODS.

Cam_H

tophawk,

Only take advice from people ranked 1 to 501!
Best of luck – I will live my SuperCoach dream vicariously through you.
Hell – I'm starting to sound a bit like Higgo.

tophawk

I hear ya.

I just want "thoughts" though… 😉 Not "advice". Thoughts are free and advice comes with strings.

I reckon Higgo is checking his dictionary right now. Vicariously? What the hell does that mean he wonders………

Tiges

I'm doing the same trades this week boss to try and push to the ranks! Ha, I'll be nipping at your heels.

The Ranger

Nice work Tophawk!
You're that close that you might as well just keep punching now eh?!
Best of luck mate.

tophawk

Bloody oath Ranger. That's exactly how I feel right now. I am going all in now. Gonna have a crack and see what happens. If I crash and burn, then that's better then playing it safe. BUT I do nail some of my PODS from here then I may need some new underwear in coming months. (And not due to soiling…….hehehe)

Cheers mate

Southern S

That's the way to go, it's a game after all.

If you don't take risks you can't seperate yourself from the pack. Good luck!

Patric

personally i would choose jack steven as he's only owned by 3.8% compared to sloanes 5.6%. steven also has a massive ceiling a capable of scoring massive shown by his three round average of 133.7. he has also already had his bye.

hope this helped mate

tophawk

Hi Patric.

Wow. Thanks mate. I am going to have another look at Jack Steven. His recent stats have to make you take notice.

It all comes down to cash. Sloane is 40K cheaper. Gonna cruch the numbers.

Thanks mate

patricmassey

no worries mate, all the best

Shake n bake

Here is 1 pod I think you might have a look at Sidebottom 534k will finish strong. Have that feeling!

Danners

Great work tophawk! You could still win it from there and the trades look decent. Sloane is a good option, but a POD that I feel is a better option (no byast) is Treloar. Does usually have a decent enough end to the season and probably has a lower chance of getting injured

Johnny

I'm ranked the same, hoping were still in the hunt! I feel I shoulda went harder on trades earlier cause everyone's team is almost full premo now. How many trades you got left?

Billioux

Good work Tophawk, I ranked right with u. Although was once top 25. Alas.Nic nat -martin,me too, reckon i heard from u 1st. If so cheers. I not normally follow… it all made sense tho, i got 13t and 1m bank. I was always getting Dusty this week, hmm now after mitch r issue maybe Lids. Wish i knew who Robbo goes to. Good luck and yes so can win from where u r.

Derek

great work guys, i wish i was at the pointy end this year. i can't remember the exact numbers but last year i was around the same, and then with 2 weeks to go i had risen to 39th, only to finish 76th (thankyou Geelong for a spineless game against the pies)

the best thing i did in the run home last year was to get Motlop as my M9/F7 with non-player to loophole him with. As you might recall Motlop had a massive finish to the year. I was able to get his points plus it gave me great bench cover for my midfield.

Motlop is looking like he could do that again. The other one is dalhouse if he gets back soon and has a big price drop.

Jaydos

Got to risk it for the biscuit some would say..

Cam_H

I take it that means Ruggles will be lured down some dark pathway, and …. whooooshka … Docherty???

Jaydos

seems like thats the way to go mate.. Sidebum has me interested also.

Neverweaken

Stop pinching my PODs! Was looking at Conca. But going with Motlop. Massive risk of course. But Tippa to Motlop for the same dollars.
And Steff Martin for Nic Nat.
Lids is the conservative one. Might change that for a rookie. Any good forward rookies

tophawk

Perhaps Tom Phillips. (FWD/MID)

Only played one game for 64 SC points. Not much else really.

patricmassey

still think jack steven is the best POD, only owned by 3.8% and has a three round average of 133

Neverweaken

I looked at him a couple of weeks ago. And since then he smashed out a good score. The Tippett NicNat disaster has forced me to look elsewhere. But will have another look. Is he mid/fwd?

patricmassey

No unfortunately he's only a mid but those stats don't lie.

Nicholas

Here is my team: https://imgur.com/a/OhH5h

Starting to get low on trades and round 15 is looking like a worry for a lot of coaches.

My trades this week are looking like:

Nic Nat to Stefan Martin

Ben Ken to Lids

Last trade is still uncertain may go Tippa to Docherty/ Simpson/ Rance however this leaves me with Collins on the bench and Brand on the bench which I have heard rumours that he might play. This would leave me with about 200k in the bank and 7 trades.
If I complete trades like these would consider Rich to one of the 3 defenders listed above depending on his game this week before his bye. At this point I would rather hold Brodie Smith as d6 rather than Rich I believe he has found a bit of form and with the soft draw to finals could prove a good pick. The rest of the money I have remaining could be used in a few weeks after the byes to go Wines/Libba to Neale/Hanners as they will both be pretty cheap. I know this would leave my team without Pendles however I do not want to pay that much cash to get him and will reconsider if he has a poor game to drop in price.

Rivo

Need to upgrade the defence now as its the last line to fix. 13 trades $43k..

Currently: Shaw, Rance, Rich, KK, AMT, Ruggles (Collins, Williams).

So thinking this week for 2 X trades. Will have to wait for Docherty price to perhaps drop in a few weeks..

Option 1: KK & Keays to Simpson & Philips
Option 2: AMT & Keays to Laird & S.Reid

KK painful to hold, Keays has to go, and AMT has the bye/time to go. Please help Community!

Kev

Option 2

Will

Merrett or Deledio in?

patricmassey

deledio, has a higher ceiling than merret and is more consistent

Rivo

Deledio for me. More upside and great value at $525k.

Nicholas

Agreed deledio is proven and can go big. Also tends to have big second halfs to the year!

Danners

Deledio, should average more from here on out

Micky

Community, I hav Aaron hall just sitting on my bench as f7. Should I downgrade him to Phillips for cash. Any ideas plz community.

Kev

Luxury trade imo, Micky. Wait till Phillips is on the bubble and reassess

Danners

A handy F7 if you have a full premo team already or you don't need the cash

hedski

He will play this week.

Mister_Spock

Bring Martin in for Nic Nat this week, or wait instead to pick up Goldy after the byes when he's dropped further in price??

patricmassey

wait for goldy, martin to inconsistent

Nicholas

If you need the cash for other upgrades and have little trades go Martin. If you do not need the money and have many trades to generate more cash go with Goldy. All in all it depends on the situation and on your cover for the byes.

Pinidu

Dusty or Pendles as VC this week? Dusty can go HUGE against the Lions at the G while Dependlebury is guaranteed a 100+ score….but doesn't always go very high. I'll definitely have the C on Paddy unless my VC has a ripper.

patricmassey

i'd probably go with dusty as it is against a very bad lions side, he is has a huge ceiling and is capable of 150+. however pendles is very reliable and is the safer option, but i would go with dusty

I N Pieman

Great pod lads. But may want to send Wayno to the NEAFL for a spell

Gavin

Just what the community thinks?

Come RD 15 I will be full premo with $740,000 in the Kitty with 4 trades my team is……

DEF: Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Bartel, Gibson, Laird ( Adams, Collins)

MIDS: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Ablett, Parker, Sloane, Priddis, Shiel, Rockliff (Davis, Stewart, Reid)

RUC: Goldstein, Gawn, (Leorsch)

FWD: Zorko, Martin, Merrett, Wells, Deledio, Wright ( Petracca, Phillips)

Ranked in the top 1600

Do I have a shot?

Hawks

Looks good, and with 22 players in rd15, should climb to around 1200th.

Gavin

I'm going to after RD 15 no reason to this week I'm projected 2147 wait to bring him RD 16. Wright just a body on the field and points for RD 15?

patricmassey

anyone have a good POD forward around 500k? already have barlow, zorko, dusty, kerridge, petracca, wright and wells.

LEKD0G

Gold fellas!

patricmassey

how are you handling the bye rounds lekdog?

LEKD0G

No injuries or surprise outs and we'll be set. Planned pretty well

Neverweaken

Suckling appears to be a POD in defence. Has DPP. After Murphy went down he picked up. After injuries he picked up. And 420k

patricmassey

I would also say Enright is as well, consistent, pretty cheap at only $476 000 and only owned by 2.8% of people.

Josh

Daniel wells is out 2 weeks!! Trade or hold?

patricmassey

ffs, your gonna have to hold he's in to good of form. massive blow for the whole community though

patricmassey

actually where have you got this info from, can't find this anywhere

Hawks

2 weeks is 1 match & 1 bye round….hold

Southern S

Should I trade Tippa, Dahlhaus and Menadue to Phillips/Reid, Rance and Deledio or Tippa, McPherson and Libba to Rockliff, Rance and Reid?

Joe

Probably going to use 3 trades this week.

AMT > Docherty, Adams > Montagna, & Dunkley > Reid, giving me 13 trades and 45k remaining, leaving my team like this:

B: Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Gibbo, Rance, Laird (Collins, Ruggles)
M: Danger, Hanners, Pendles, Shiel, Libba, Cripps, Kerridge, Gray (Davis, Keays, Trengove)
R: Gawn, NicNat (Loersch)
F: Zorko, Dusty, Montagna, Wells, Greene, Hall (Petracca, Reid)

Thoughts community? Personally I think Kerridge is worth keeping as a worthy backup on the bench for the rest of the season, that's why I'm not trading him. Question is, is it worth having more depth, or more flexibility with cash as we get to the pointy end of the season?

patricmassey

Still not completely sold on Gibbo, Hall and Cripps. You're gonna need to get rid of NicNat, probably for Martin to make some cash, than upgrade petracca and have hall as F7. Other than that pretty good team and plenty of trades for luxury upgrades to Gibbo and Cripps.

Nicholas

Suggestions with my team up above please?

patricmassey

Need to upgrade AMT to docherty, Josh Smith to a premo, downgrade Cox to someone, upgrade NicNat to Goldstein or Martin if you need cash, upgrade Ben Ken to Deledio or Montagna. To be quite frank it's a very average team and wouldn't be afraid if I was up against it.

Nicholas

Thinking of holding Cox for the rest of the rest of the season as ruck cover, if I upgrade Josh Smith would that mean loopholing between Libba and Wines each week? My team is quite average but with some good captain scores have gotten 2586 and 2030 in the past two weeks have jumped up the rankings quite a bit!

Juzzy

Hi Community,
As much as I would love to keep Dahlhaus I think I may have to trade. Ranked 1700 with a pretty complete team I may swap him out for Montagna. The extra points may matter more if Wells is a confirmed out.

Neverweaken

Looking at bringing Barlow back. Traded out Wells and brought him back and that's paid off. Ignoring the fact I traded him out once his price figures and DPP look good. Or am I crazy? Good forwards are hard to find at the moment

LJB

Trading a player out and then in never pays off, you have still wasted a trade wouldn't do it again just lessons learnt for next year to hold premos unless they will miss 4+ weeks

red5

Thinking Adams to Howe
5 rd avg 107
3 rd avg 99
But BE 140
Only in 4% of teams.
Currently ranked top 6 defender
Thoughts???

Southern S

How is he ranked a top 6 defender with an average of 87.6 per round?

red5jc

Thinking Adams to Howe

Southern S

I still think Howe is a risk, especially if his role changes. Only got a 70 last week after many good weeks. Could be chasing.

Patric

Tried some different trades this week so tell me what you think…

Out – Zaharakis, D Rioli, M Wright

In – Coniglio, Barlow, Conca

Going for POD’s so that’s why they’re bit different, please tell me your thoughts

Southern S

Hope Conca is just for bench? He's not a premo.

Patric

yeah of course, fwd is Barlow, Dusty, Deledio, Zorko, Wells, Kerridge

Southern S

Then they look like good trades 😉

Although I'd consider jack steven or Sloane in the mids, not that I don't like Coniglio he's had a ripper year.
