The Round 15 AFL Cheatsheet

Published by Jock on

Supercoach 2016 midpriced forwardsG’day Community,

It’s the final bye round and we should be bringing in the final pieces of our teams. I’ve highlighted some players on the bubble as well as some premos coming off their bye rounds.

Interestingly I think there can be more of a discussion had around who to drop this week rather than who to bring in. I’ve left these players off the cheat sheet but I’m thinking they all need to go either this week or next; KeaysBarlow and Wells.

I for one have all of these blokes and will be dropping Keays for sure but I’m wondering what you all think on the others. Barlow I think just needs to go but I also have had him since the start so that’s an easier decision than the one facing those who brought him in last week. Wells is another one, I’m concerned about his ability to stay on the park and feel that a trade to another premium forward is the way to go.

Finally on Aaron Hall, I’m holding with the aim of making him an F7/M9 swing man. I saw enough in that last quarter to say that he can get back to his form at the start of the season. Eade just needs to play him in the middle!

Let me know what you think.

Make sure you jump in and have a go at the FREE CoachKings play a home Thursday session – last week it was great to see so many Community blokes on the live ladder. Well done to Rowan Green on his win … maybe you could take home the cash this week?

josh

got 5 trades left full premium except kerridge should I trade him to dusty or cop him for the rest of the season?

Marvin

It's a significant upgrade. Trade him if in you have sufficent dpp swings to cover short term injuries.

LEKD0G

Upgrade

Jabba07

If you can, wait until finals… Dusty will go up then hopefully plateau back. I've got 6 trades and nervous. Kerridge is good to go for a while, just had a nice bye rest.

Marc

Nick Riewoldt a genuine POD option? Or go the safer option in Merrett/Deledio?

Tommo09

I am going for him

LEKD0G

Looking at him

Danners

Safer to go Deledio/Merrett

Southern S

For sure.

Lesley

What about Callan ward? Is he a good upgrade option over robbie Gray ?

Kev

Shiel/Ward/Coniglio all are great value at the moment. Pity it's their bye week!

Nathan

Not this week due to his bye
But has a great run home

Southern S

Like them all.

Really like Coniglio due to low ownership, Gray can really go big consistently when in good form though.

Ward and Shiel solid picks too. Tough choices.

Consider Hodge too………..could be a deciding factor in the sc finals.

Dylan

Shaw, Laird, Bartel, Docherty, Simpson, Collins (Tucker, Brand)
Danger, Selwood, Pendles, Ablett, Ward, Parker, Libba, Gray (Dunkley, Menadue, Stewart)
Gawn, Goldy (Chol)
Dusty, Zorko, Wells, Dahlhaus, Montagna, Merrett (Phillips, Howard)

4 trades, $30k approax
What should I do? Any advice would be great thanks

FlyingHawkAssassin

Hold for now until Tucker/Collins hit their peak in a few weeks and upgrade them depending on injuries!

@TheNoLanguage

Mate you have 4 trades. Its R14. HOLD.

Jabba07

Do nothing for 3 weeks!

Ada

Need help people! Got dahlhaus wells and Barlow. Wondering who to keep. Initially I was going to hold dahlhaus and wells but now Barlow is going to miss a few I can't hold them all. Which one to trade? Only 9 trades left.

Tom

I'd hold Dahlhaus and Wells personally. I'm trading Barlow this week because I've had a look at his run home, and when he gets back from injury he'll play Sydney, West Coast, Adelaide, GWS and Bulldogs. Hard to score well against those quality teams

Danners

Wield the axe on Barlow

@TheNoLanguage

BARLOW!

Dane

Trade barlow

Tommo09

Def: SHAW, Docherty, Simpson, Laird, Savage, Tippa (COLLINS, Austin)
Mid: DANGER, Pendles, Gaz, Hanners, ROCKY, Priddis, Libba, Parker (Trengove, HOPPER, MacPherson)
Ruc: Gawn, GOLDY (Grimley)
Fwd: Martin, BARLOW, WELLS, Riewoldt, Franklin, Hall (Petracca, Phillips)

Traded Kerridge to Riewoldt as a POD

8 trades and $129k left after this weeks trades
Upgrading to JJ and Neale next week

Do I trade Barlow, Wells, Hall?
What do I do to get good cover with the trades I have?
I'm in a bad place I know and I need some luck to do well but I am hoping and praying

Thanks in advance community

Tommo09

Any PODs instead of Neale and JJ

Southern S

Hodge. Coniglio.

Tommo09

Thoughts on my team?

@TheNoLanguage

Trade Barlow and Hopper. I'd look at Montagna or Lids and maybe going Hopper to Mathieson for the $

randomcliche

Team looks fine bro, I wouldn't be trading wells or barlow (he says regretting the round 3 barlow to JJ madness…oh where are my hindsight goggles…

FlyingHawkAssassin

Need some advice on these trades!
Laird, Smith, RICH, SHAW, Docherty, Amt, COLLINS, BRAND
Ablett, Gray, Priddis, Libba, Parker, DANGER, SELWOOD, BARTEL, MACPHERSON, STEWART, Smith
Cox, Gawn, MARTIN
Martin, Deledio, Franklin, ZORKO, BARLOW, WELLS, Petracca, Phillips
Got 7 trades and 384.5k
Thinking of going:
Barlow to Montagna
Rich to JJ/Simpson
Next week:
AMT to Neale
And simetime in the future Brodie Smith to Simpson/JJ
Should have just enough money currently to do all these trades
Will have to trade ou either Rich or Barlow to avoid a donut this week.

Jabba07

Great line up and good cash/trades position!!! I'd trade Barlow before Rich given the 4 weeks Rich is by no means a disaster and has been challenged to break the tag by his coach. After last night AMT has to go before Rich anyway. Barlow to Montagna is a great trade, but maybe see how Rich goes for the new few games, and see how JJ goes as well – torn hammy is a risk. Rich to JJ, McVeigh or even Gibson works in the sub-500k.

Tom

What do people think of getting in Buddy? Dirt cheap and surprised to see that he has 30% ownership, because nearly no one in my leagues has him.

FlyingHawkAssassin

The bye should have done him well. Have him in my team and should average a consistent 105 for the rest of the year!

Marvin

Na, I think there are better options for the fwd line like deledio, dusty, merrett etc. buddy has shown consistency this year for a change and we aren't seeing the wild fluctuations in his scores. Top score of 116 so don't expect a 140 plus. In which case better grabbing someone who will average more.

Jabba07

I reckon it depends on your position. If you are feel you have a weaker team, he is a massive X factor that can pull a 150 and count for two. If you feel like you have a full preo team, I'd look at more consistent MID/FWD options – Merritt, Montagna, Dusty etc. Even Lids.

AnthonyC

I have Barlow but am planning to hold.

I currently have Petracca and Menadue, but I have enough cash to upgrade both of them over the next 2 weeks.
This would leave me "full premo", and when Barlow comes back I would be able to use him as a F7/M9 (and also save a trade).

Thoughts?

Derek

i'm planning on holding as well. this week i actually have 21 onfield (if Lee plays), i know barlow has the bye, but i don't need to trade except to get Phillips.

Next week i was going to trade either menadue, mcgovern or petracca >> Hall. yes Hall.

Hall has a be of 120 this week, so could be $380k next week. i was like Jock, watched him against the hawks and saw him everywhere in the last quarter, he might have turned a corner, leave it one more week.

Hall (originally was going to be Motlop) at F7 to cover barlow, and then to loophole with (and offer midfield cover as well) for less than $380k, seems a good value option.

I want to hold barlow, Fremantle play 4 of their last 5 at Home

Southern S

I can see the attraction of Hall as M9/F7 for 380k, especially compared to Motlop.

Derek

Suns have a very nice draw to come home. I think hall struggled against good teams, but should go ok against the weaker ones.

Ddj

I'd love to get Parker in my team but I can't help but feel his confidence isn't as high as when the Asian lady was froffing his name on the afl ads. Feels like he dropped off around the same time commercial stopped coming on every 20 minutes.

I'm going for Hannebery and pendles as my final midfield upgrades. Anyone else who I should consider? I've already got dangerwood, jpk, gablett, Robbie Gray, Rockliff.

FlyingHawkAssassin

Hahahaha you cracked me up mate

In the Nick of time.

Sloane

Billo

Good stuff. I'm looking at Hanners and Neale for my last two upgrades. I already have Pendles though..

Cam

What is everyone's thoughts on Franklin? I usually stick away from talls but if I get him it will allow me to get pendles nest week.
Will buddy average 10o for the rest of the year?

bob

yes mate

Danners

I reckon he could, if you need cash and low on trades. Buddy is a good option

Brett

Whats peoples thoughts on gaff , down 200k after the big knock from jonas ! Average 103 last year , can seriously rack them up ….

Kerridge down makes 90k or straight swap for petracca?

Good possibly to come home strong

marcus

if I had more trades id definitely get him in as a m9

Jabba07

Sick game last night! Must be considered, just held unmarked off the back of the packs and dominated.

Jordan

Making two trades already in bailey Williams to Phillips and Kerridge to montagna.
But I have nic Nat and Barlow and am think nic Nat to Goldy and Barlow to Deledio, which one should I pull this week and what's your thoughts on the Barlow trade?

Jordan

My fwd line is; Dusty, Zorko, Merrett, montagna, Barlow, hall, Petracca and Cox.

LEKD0G

Goldy has bye so Barlow to Deledio

FlyingHawkAssassin

Would be steering clear from Goldy until we see signs of improvement. Look at Martin now with the number one ruck role he should be a consistent scorer and save you some cash

Kev

Leppa makes 3-4 changes a week. Don't reckon we've seen the last of West

IH8

I can't bring myself to get rid of Wells. He scores like a keeper and his injury issues have all been minor so far this season. Forget his history at your peril but Bugger me I'm not dropping a bloke putting up consistent tons because he rolled his ankle and missed a game.

Kev

Agree with you mate for those exact reasons. Hard time deciding on Barlow as well. Been an absolute bloody rollercoaster this year with him and I'm reluctant to jump off now that he's smashed out a 123 average over the past month

FlyingHawkAssassin

Agreed

Southern S

Holding Wells and Barlow for sure, Wells should come back after the bye and Barlow a week or two later.

I'm only playing for finals leagues though.

@TheNoLanguage

Agreed. Wells is a FWD keeper for sure

The Ranger

Spot on

Leeds17

Agree with Lycett expect the likely hood of a huge score this week, highest score against Leuenberger has been 105 from Goldy, Lewie just doesn't give up HOTAs,

Kerridge looks like great coverage if the money isn't needed elswhere

Southern S

Exactly, It's still a one on one ruck battle and Luey is hugely under rated.

Kev

JGov to McVeigh?

Youngy

there are better options such as Laird, Rance, Docherty, Simpson….

Nathan

Im really considering trading out danger
Just like higgo
Itll give me the opportunity to incease my scoring by bringing in neale and hanners
Both around the 120/125 point bracket

Kev

How many trades you have left Nathan?

marcus

until danger goes bang and scores 200 again

Nathan

Yeah thats a worry hahaha

Nathan

9 left full premo
Im sitting just under 1500
Not gonna win the cash but want to have a real crack and need to do something massive
Thos might be a little massive for me but it could work

Southern S

That's an option if you have a poor valued team and can't get full premo on field, otherwise it's a ridiculous move, one of the worst moves you can make in supercoach is to trade out the number one player, who hasn't missed a game.

Utter madness I tell you.

Hoot

I think ill be following that madness… Don't want to BUT playing it safe isn't going to catch the leader who is 400 odd points ahead of me.

Crowmagnon

I think a better shark move is Goldy to Martin.

Mister_Spock

Got five trades left and full premo, but still have MacPherson heating up the pine with a long term injury (still out 5-6 weeks I think). Is it worthwhile trading out Mac for Joyce for minor cash generation and gain a helpful Mid/Def swing, or hold trades?

Kev

Not the worst move, Spock. Don't reckon he'll hold his place much longer but would be a useful loophole player

Crowmagnon

hold that precious trade. instead of crappy mid/Def cover, you can use the trade if injury strikes. Premo for Premo.

The master

hold, you would trade your wife for one more trade later on.

Dean

You gotta be kidding, if thats a serious question the HOLD THE TRADE.

Gavin

I disagree with trading Wells he will have been rested for 23 days by the time he plays his next game and a BE of 73. Just my option.

Southern S

Agreed he scores too well to ditch him.

min0008

If I trade Barlow to Zac Merrett, my fwd line will be Martin, Deledio, Montagna, Merrett, Hall, Wells (Petracca, Menadue) and left with 7 trades and 230k in the bank with Davis to upgrade and Libba at M7 at this stage.

Derek

keep Barlow and upgrade petracca to ZMerrett

Derek

i wasn't shocked when Higgo dropped his bombshell about trading out dangerfield, it had briefly crossed my mind as well.

i've forgotten who posted this, but they said they treat their supercoach team like a business. i like that.

Strictly speaking you want a return on your investment from your players.

If you were to take a players average and assume that is what they will score for the rest of the year (return), and divide it by their price (investment) you will see what the $ cost for each SC point is worth. In supercoach, this is shown as the "MVP". Dangerfield is currently $5,536 per point – the highest in my team. Ablett is $5,066 per point. It is pretty easy to find on your team analyser.

If you used a rough guide of $5,000 per point, assuming your team value – bench, is approx $11.5mil you should score 2300 pts, plus your extra C score. So i use $5,000 as my guide to work out if someone is good value or not. (ie Sloane is $5,296 compared to SMitchell $4,662, interesting)

Players who are way under the $5000 benchmark need to be looked at, however you will find plenty of players like J Waite whose average may not be replicated for the rest of the season.

On the flip side, you will find players like Hodge who has a MVP value over $6000, that is more likely to show that he will do better than his current average.

Probably too late in the year to worry about this sort of analysis, but thought it might be good to know for next year.

If you had a team of "Dangerfield Valued Players", meaning they all had his current return on investment of $5,536 per SC point, your likely score would be around 2077 + extra C score. clearly not good enough. If you had a team of SMitchell valued players you would score over 2600 every week, but it isn't that simple.

I can see Higgo's argument, but the reality is to score as many points as possible, and that is what Dangerfield does, he is a points machine. Plus you can Throw the big C on him and it blows all the MVP calculations out of the water.

Keep that beautiful brain of yours Higgo coming up with ideas, we need to be challenged with these ideas to make us all better supercoachers.

Tommo09

Nice information Derek
Thanks

Southern S

If he got a 170 last week it would of never been mentioned.

Moustachio

If you had a team of Dangerfields and could put the C on all of them, you would get 1,000,000 SC for the round…

… don't trade out Danger! :S

Derek

i think Higgo is just holding up a broken mirror to the community

Southern S

If someone who wasn't a pillar of the community like Higgo suggested trading dangerfield, they'd be drawn and quartered very quickly I imagine.

😉

Liam

Was thinking about trading him myself. He's gonna hurt me so bad of I do, so i'm passing.

The Ranger

I bloody love Higgo but the problem with the trade is that it relies on maths which is an exact science and SC is anything but.
Danners posted that he had once tried a similar trade with Goldstein as the money earner and I tried it with Gaz as the bait a couple of years back and neither of us had a good time of it. Mathematically it's enticing but it can unravel pretty quickly.
I'd love to hear that someone did it and it came off!

Pete

Bloody silliest decision I have ever heard Higgo state in all the years of playing SC. I have been a investor for 25 years predominantly on the ASX and also commercial property.

The analysis above is great in theory, however the FACT of the matter is that no other player scores consistently like Dangerfield apart from GAJ of late, which he did state.

The reward for your investment in this game is POINTS plain and simple, the price of the player or price per point is a flawed guide or graph if you will go by that.

Granted it has merit behind it, however when dissecting this out and looking at it over the long term, or lets say the home and away season, this is where it becomes very inconsistent regarding POINTS long term, however its great for quick cash generation but only if we had unlimited trades.
.
As stated in your conclusion by "throwing the big C on him and it blows all the MVP calculations out the window."
Having that someone who consistently scores you 120+ week in week out, is a MASSIVE piece of mind and therefore becomes PRICELESS.

Don't play with DANGER!!!

pod

Anyone else on the JJ wagon?

Tommo09

Yep me

Cam_H

I'm unconvinced, but open to being persuaded …
He has yet to play a full season.
Average 2013: 65
Average 2014: 64
Average 2015: 78
Has played four games in 2016; belted teams outside of the top eight (130, 123, 98) but ran up against Hawthorn (70) … Bulldogs have a fairly tricky run home – not like North's – but few 'gimmies', so when challenged against the top teams, how will he go?
… or are you referring to Josh Jenkins?

Dice

He had a bloke running with him when they Hawthorn.
Also that 98 was in a half against Carlton where he dominated before getting injured

Southern S

I have one defensive premo spot left.

If JJ can come back and show me a few good games he's in.

Crowmagnon

Giddy Up!

gazpron

Your thoughts on a luxury trade community. Currently full proper premo, Hall as M9/F7 cover swing, Smith at D7. Have already decided this week on bang, bang Barlow & Kerridge to Merrett & Montagna. Considering Duncan (bye) to Treloar. Gives me 20 playing in a very competitive league match and a proven 110 average player at a discount price. I'm 550 overall. Will leave me with 6 trades; Petracca, Collins & McGovern still fattening. Hard to let Duncan go as have liked his season outside the ko 25. Also plenty of mids in the sea who will be value over the journey. Too early for these kind of moves, or trust the decent bench cover and go for gold?

Cam_H

Firstly, I am in no position to give advice to someone who's 550th overall.
Secondly, can we swap teams?
Thirdly, on six trades and full premo', I would not make luxury trades – still two long, hard, cold, injury prone months to go.
Fourthly, I do like the p.o.d. … Duncan has been your nautical figurehead, and I agree it would be disappointing to let him go now. Treloar though might make a nice nautical figurehead too! Coin toss.
Hope you take home the big prize … best of luck!

The Ranger

I reckon you've gotta hold with only six trades left.
Well done Gaz and good luck.

RioliBoyz1738

Im in a similar posi as you mate (ranked 581) but I have Hall as F6. I got 5 trades and wont be touching them for a month at least. Players are gonna get injured, suspended and of course the dreaded "rest" period will hit us too.

I have "1 trade per week" theory for the backend of the year. Basically that means if you don't have the luxury of making a trade per week for the rest of the year then you need to stop. With 8 weeks to go and 6 trades you're 2 weeks behind schedule. Ideally you want at be looking at 5 trades with 5 weeks to go at minimum if you wanna have a serious crack at top 10. Its not impossible for us coz we're about 500 points behind. Thats easy to catch with a combo of risk C picks, pods and luxury "super premo" upgrades eg. Gray into Hanners or Priddis into Pendles. Good Luck!

Gazpron

Thanks guys for taking the time to provide great quality feedback. Have parked myself with Duncan and 7 trades left. Hopefully the 19 on the park this week can get the job done

TRIGGER HAPPY

Now we r reaching full premo why not stop for a minute and take a look back?
Wow team looks so different to the one I started with.
I have 8 players from my original team.
1 in defence which is no surprise as my plan was to upgrade here.
4 in the mids so half of the team on the park haven't needed a trade
1 in ruck
2 in the fwds.

7 LTI 'S didn't help.

Be interesting to see what other teams esp those at the pointy end have from their original team?
I'm tipping its gonna be more like half.

Have a look and let me know
Always good to look back to move forward,

Tommo09

I have 15 out of my 30 including some that I traded out and now back in
I also have some that I will trade out next week

Moustachio

I've got 13 from original squad before this round's trades, including team MVP M. King

The Ranger

Nice idea Trigger. A mid season review.
I got 13 before this weeks trades but I've been lucky with the LTI's this year.

Beezneez

!7 from my original team with ten trades left ranked 1000ish – was 200 early. Traded Rockliff and Wells back in. Long term need to upgrade 1- 2 premo defenders (1 for Smith possibly), Libba for a top mid (Hanneberry, Neale, Sloane or Treloar) and possibly Kerridge/Hall/T Greene for 1 or 2 Fwds (Montagna/Deledio).

Andrew

Thanks in advance community.

Only 7 trades left, if I trade Barlow I will get 18 on the field this week. Just wondering if I should just take the probable loss this week (only sitting 5th in my main comp) and save the trade or trade Barlow to Merret or Delidio.

Fwd line is : Martin, Hall, Greene, Montagna, Wells, Barlow (Adams, Kerridge). Going to upgrade Kerridge to Zorko next week.

Cheers guys

Steeeve

Have plenty of trades and my finances seem to be in order. Any thoughts on the following?
Wingard out. Montagna in.

Too sideways? Has Chad's form been good enough to keep him (avg 102.5 over last five)? Might Joey be rested?

Southern S

I don't see Montagna being rested saints are still a chance of making finals, and you don't rest a great player who appears to be fit and in form

Steeeve

If he averages 100 from here and Chad averages 90 is it then worth it? Keeping in mind I will have Hall as cover?

The Ranger

Unless you have a load of trades it's too sideways for mine.
Can see why it would be tempting tho…

James

7 trades left after bringing in Doc and Phillips, need to finish my mids but I'm torn.

Currently: Danger, GAJ, Rocky, Priddis, Parker, Wines, Libba, Kerridge (Phillips, Trengove, Stewart)

282,500 in the bank, was thinking of going:
Kerridge to Hanners this week
Libba to Neale next
And either Wines to Pendles (or upgrade a rookie) later.

Question is, is it worth going down to 3-4 trades for that? Or stick fat with wines. Also is it better to hold off on Hanners for a week?

Cheers community

James

Should mention I have Hall as F7/M9

rioliBoyz1738

Hanners BE isnt something you should worry about if you're trading him in for Kerridge. Sam might not get his BE (103) and what you save on Hanners you could lose this week. Pull that trigger.

and id trade Wines before Libba TBH.

The Ranger

I'd be scared of anything below six trades after byes mate, it can go wrong pretty quickly with a couple of injuries.
Kerridge to Hanners is good and Libba to Neale maybe but i think you wanna hold on to 4 trades until finals unless you have bloody good cover on all lines.

Jangles

21 on field this week! 7 trades left.
Traded Kerridge- Phillips
Ruggles- Simpson
Tippa to delido..
Torn between Going delido or Merret!???
Thoughts?

@TheNoLanguage

Lids mate. Will be a top 6 FWD for the rest of the year

Westy

Current team
D SHAW, Docherty, Laird, Boyd, Byrne-Jones, McDonald-T, COLLINS, HIPWOOD
M DANGERFIELD, Ablett, Steven, Sidebottom, WARD, SELWOOD, Kerridge, Liberatore, Trengove, STEWART, HOPPER
R Gawn, GOLDSTEIN, Grimley
F Martin, ZORKO, Hall, Montagna, GREENE, MENZEL, Petracca, Rose.
250K in the kitty

Obviously bring the playing interchange onto the field.

Hopper out for Phillips is a no brainer.
Is it worth dropping Menzel, moving Kerridge to the FWDs and bringing in a Mid premo like Pendles or Hannebery? They've scored about the same average, but Kerridge is DPP.
Hoping Grimley gets a game this week.

Future
Want to bring in JJ as D6 for DBJ when he returns.

Brent

Does anyone think that trading stars could be a better option for cash generation….as in danger is 740k trade him out for Mitchell who is 460k roughly. Then in about a month danger is 640k and Mitchell is 560k. Therefor it's a 200k profit…although it take 2 trades to do it I guess

RioliBoyz1738

Not worth the trades or points you'll lose, plus Danger is VC/C every week from now on.

randomcliche

Danger is not a shark move candidate…want someone much less reliable like a power forward…the idea of the game is points and danger does that.

pod

Sell high buy low, seriously considering due to bye rounds

Slats

Is Rich to McVeigh a waste of a trade?

Warren

Trading danger is like removing the numbers from your mailbox and then wondering why you don't get any letters.

The master

people mention they are picking up particular players due to having a good run home, but I find quite often that the mid fielders and defenders go well when they are playing the better teams, probably due to more stoppages and more entries into the back line. Good run home may work better for goal kickers and KPP forwards IMO.

min0008

D: Shaw, Simpson, Docherty, Laird, Rance, Bartel (Collins, Austin)
M: Ablett, Dangerfield, Selwood, Pendlebury, Gray, Parker, Libba, Davis (Trengove, Phillips, Jansen)
R: Goldstein, Gawn (Loersch)
F: Deledio, Martin, Barlow, Hall, Wells, Kerridge (Petracca, Menadue)

9 trades and 240k in the bank

I'll have 7 trades after Kerridge and Barlow to Merrett and Montagna.

rioliBoyz1738

Davis to Hanners, Barlow to Montagna.

You can afford that plus more potential for points.

min0008

Is it worth also getting rid of Libba for Treloar or keep him till later

RioliBoyz1738

Id hold off on that for now. Try and get 22 premos first. Id actually move Hall on before Libba.

min0008

After trading Davis to Hannebey and Barlow to Montagna I'll be full premium with Libba at m8 and Kerridge at f6 and Petracca f7.

rioliBoyz1738

Thats Solid. You've got petracca as swing cover and you can now take the next couple weeks deciding who you wanna get in for Kerraidge and Libba. Depending on if you're going for league or overall, you can pull the trigger accordingly.

RioliBoyz1738

Do I have a genuine crack at top 10? Currently ranked 581 with 5 trades and 19.5k. Got 19 fielded this week with 15 premos, looking for a massive jump in rankings, hopefully top 200. This is my team…

Shaw, Doc, Simpson, Bartel, Gibbo, Laird (Rugz, Collins)
Hanners, Pendles, Danger, Gaz, Sloane, Parker, Priddis, Gray (Petracca, Trengrove, Phillips)
Goldy Gawn (Cox)
Martin, Zorko, Wells, Montagna, Wingard, Hall. (Paine, Wyatt)

Hall to Dahl when he drops in price (192 BE)

randomcliche

Mate love the team, looks super solid. You've done a better job than me.

Shaw, Bartel, Yeo, McVeigh Laird, KK (collins, tucker)
Danger, God, Pendles, Rocky, Selwood, Priddis, Parker, Libba (trenove, philips, joyce)
Goldy, blicavs (grimey)
Martin, Montagna, Hall, Lids, Wells, Robinson (Petracca, Conca)

I'm a big Lids fan so that is where I could be aiming better than DH imo, but you are clearly better than me at this caper!

RioliBoyz1738

You seem to have a pod-ish version of my team. Could very well outscore me for the rest of the year.

Im considering Lids over Dahl too. He looks better every week.

randomcliche

Yeah, Robinson (2.1%), KK, McVeigh (both circa 5%), and Lids, Yeo (under 10%) does have some pod characteristics. I think you have to run circa 5 under 10 to give some differentiation to your team to give a serious chance of out performance. I understand that most years, it will struggle, but it only has to come off once. Lids is in less than half the teams that Dahl is in, and yet I think Lids is better.

All that being said I would look to do a 1 down, 1 up to get lids rather than Hall. Use hall as M9/F7 cover. I've got 1 less trade but $150k and aim to kill petracca. I aim to swap him into Zorko at some point, allowing Hall to swing cover. Then 3 injury trades for rest of season. Yikes. You could do this as well…

Fabian89

Need more trades I believe. Im currently 682 with 12 trades left. Only need 3 more players upgraded

Jim

YEO no way !! To inconsistent he is my team and next week he is going from my team docherty to finish my team

John

Davis to any mid for final spot who do I go?
Already got danger pendles ward rockliff parker ablett libba

Hubba

S Mitchell … shark move . Now hodge is back sammy will kill it from here in

Ben

Have full premium and 8 trades. Is Parker to Pendlebury/hanners a valid luxury trade option?

randomcliche

Hells yes! Wish I was in that boat!

jules

Have Barlow and Dahlhaus on fwd bench with kerridge and petracca currently covering them. Also have Hall and Wells. Still need 2 premo mids was gonna trade kerridge for one but need him for cover or should I trade kerridge to montagna as insurance. Would then have 7 fwds once all fit

Cam_H

So it's YOU who is the Bermuda Triangle of Forward Premos! Please don't trade in Montagna … I've just brought him into my team! j/k

For what it's worth, I'm holding Kerridge and trading out Barlow to Montagna, but I'm a touch impatient and a bit of a Kerridge fan.

Nicholas

Derek would you trade out Rich or Barlow? Trading out Rich would mean using Tracca as cover

Derek

at the moment i'll keep Rich. I'm almost to full premium, will have another look once my team is filled. also got BSmith at D6. Was thinking of keeping both at D6/D7 and looping them.

Barlow getting injured just shows what can happen and how we might need trades elsewhere. I'll hold Rich for now, he is going ok enough.

I don't need to do anything with barlow this week, has bye so i'd planned around that and will have 20 on field this week without him. Hopefully we will know more on his injury next week.

Nicholas

I have 17 playing this week, so trading out one of them would be good for me. I still have Smith and Rich so am in a similar position to you except I only have 17 this week. Leaning towards trading out Rich for Simpson

Derek

Rich doesn't have a broken finger

Nicholas

If I trade out Barlow I would probably have to keep Rich for the rest of the year that is the only problem due to my low trades

StevenH28

Getting to the pointy end, need some tips to get to full premo.
Currently have 9 trades left, $306,900 in the kitty.

DEF: Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Laird, Gibson, Adams (Williams, Collins)
MID: Pendles, Danger, Ablett, J.Selwood, Sloane, Parker, Libba, Hall (Trengove, Stewart, Gore)
RUC: Gawn, Nicnat (Grimley)
FWD: Martin, Barlow, Wells, Zorko, Lyons, Greene (Petracca, Cox)

Looking to upgrading Adams to Bartel and Nicnat after the byes.

Pretty happy with emergencies.
Priority to upgrade (and who to) from Hall, Libba, Greene, Lyons and now Barlow with his finger injury?
Need to keep DDP for Mid-Fwd swing.

All guidance from the community much appreciated.

RioliBoyz1738

Hall to Phillips for the swing. Lyons and Barlow for Montagna/Merrett/Lids (pick 2)

Derek

Stewart or Gore to Phillips.

I would also seriously look at McVeigh this week ahead of bartel in a few weeks.

Libba to JPK/Priddis/Gray/hanners etc

Cam_H

Nic Nat to Goldstein, Mumford, or Stefan Martin?

Conan_the_Westy

I have $234,700 but have very few trades left due to a combination of being worked over by injury and a lack of self-discipline earlier.
I'm trying to lock in my final ruck slot. I have Gawn as R1 but I'm looking at Lycett ($446,400), Jacobs ($498,900) or Mumford ($457,200) next week to come in at R2. I have Daw ($298,600) and Cox ($278,700) as potential trades with Grimley as a permanent R3 and loophole option.
I see Daw as having betting scoring potential but less job security. Any thoughts the best way forward.
The rest of my team is pretty settled and I'd like to hold my remaining trades for replacing injured premos.

Derek

Cox will play the rest of the year. hold him

John

Davis to Phillips, Kerridge to Deledio or Merrett, Wells (if he's out) to Deledio, Merrett or Montagna

Thoughts?

Stevo

Yes re first 2 & go with Kerridge to Deledio. Hold Wells.

Stevo

Love this weekly sheet Lekdog! McVeigh a real temptation but I am taking a punt this week and going AMT, Ruggles & Kerridge to Docherty, Broad & Montagna. Takes me down to 8 trades but full premo across all lines but defence (1 short). Broad should play this week but JS risk after that. Riding it home for luck from here-on!

mark

Need some help community. I want to trade out brodie smith from my back line as he sucks me in every year. I dont no who i should get for him though. Backline is
shaw simpson docherty rance and laird.
Cheers for the help

Stevo

Get McVeigh or Zac Williams if you can afford him.

Cam_H

mark,
Not sure how you're going for trades and cash, but Bartel, Enright, Gibson, Suckling, Boyd, McVeigh, Howe, and Pittard are all contenders. Even Zac Williams from GWS is worth a look as a POD.
Personally I'm low-ish on trades and have Brodie Smith as my D6, so I'm sticking with him for a few more weeks still. It's odd, because I watch the Crows' games, and he usually seems to play pretty well but regardless ends up with sucky SC scores.

mark

I currently have 240k in tbe bank. Im thinking about boyd just worried about his output when JJ returns to the side

Grantc

Kerradge or Deledio last fwd who should I pick

Stevo

Deledio, comfortably.

Liam

Riewoldt or Montagna?

Shags

Montagna

Liam

You think? 6 of the saints last 9 games are at etihad where riewoldt has averaged 121SC this season, whereas montagna 102. All of riewoldts games at etihad have been 100+

Steeeve

Go Reiwoldt then, you've done your research. If it doesn't pan out at least you can know it was the right idea.
