The Round 16 AFL Cheatsheet

Published by Lekdog on

Supercoach 2016 midpriced forwards

G’day community,

There’s a lot of value this week but I skipped a couple of obvious players like Parker or Montagna because that can get dull so here are my suggestions for the week.

Thank the Fantasy Gods that the bye rounds are done.

Don’t forget – CoachKings play at home is open for Thursday night’s Port v Hawks contest. Click here to chew the fat about your lineup. $500 up for grabs again.. better than a kick in the pants considering it’s free!

Deledio or Franklin??

Jock

I'd go Lids mate

Hallahan

And Goldy or Stef Martin??

Dean

if you have goldy obviously hold but if u dont have him take the safer option and pick Martin

@wheels_1987

agreed jock

pod

Franklin, Lids is in a crap team

Tommo09

Team after trades this week

D: Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Laird, JJ, Savage (Collins, Austin)
M: Danger, Pendles, Ablett, Rockliff, Hanners, Priddis, Libba, Parker (Hopper, Trengove, MacPherson*)
R: Gawn, Goldy (Grimley
F: Martin, Barlow**, Wells, Riewoldt, Franklin, Hall (Phillips, Long*)

6 trades $279k left
Went Petracca and Tippa to JJ and Long (for loophole)
Ranked poorly at around 3300

Next week Hopper and Libba to Neale and Montagna (hopefully I have enough cash)
If I don't have enough, who to get that is less than Montagna?

Thoughts??

Dave

Not sure about JJ, very risky to bring him in coming of an injury. I'd go rance or boyd instead.

Considering you have only 6 trades, next week i'd hold libba as he will still score solid. Iif u have a few trades left late in the season i would be upgrading libba then

Leeds17

I disagree a bit, he's back, playing well & was put straight back in with no VFL I reckon he's right to go my concern with his inclusion in Tommo's team is that he already has Savage as D6 & i think D6 is a perfect spot for JJ.

Stevo

Remember without that goal he would have only scored high 65-70

I think its a bit risky, but if tommo brings him in and he gets back to where he was at the start of the season it will pay off. But i'd much rather go with a safer option

Leeds17

Doesn't work like that anymore he was on 76 when he took the mark.

Definitely a risk as you said i agree, but all defenders bar the top couple are risks.

Jabba07

I thought he was on 68…. Maybe there was a lag, but I was trying to watch it closely to see what the impact was at the time. Happy to be wrong though.

Wattsieesq

Agreed, I thought he was on 68.

Southern S

Only 20 touches in one game isn't what I'd call playing well by his standards.

Leeds17

Away against Swans??? Pretty decent

Southern S

Yeah it's not bad by any means, and his DE was solid at 85%.

But he was pumping out 25-30 touches when in good form.

Leeds17

he wasnt bad against Hawks but didn't reach the same heights as his couple earlier games, I reckon if he has a 70odd basement in the tough games but can go 110-120 in the easier/Etihad games he should ave95+ from here.

Viscount

You can think of yourself as being ranked poorly, or in the top 2%.

Cheers,

Viscount

Pinidu

I was hoping that it was a typo and he meant 33000…

Millsy88

Lycett or Franklin for F6? Leaning Lycett as I don't have cover for Martin and Gawn, with Lorche at R3.

Stevo

tough one, scoring wise – franklin will score better and has a fairly easy run home. Lycett doesnt have a big ceiling but scores fairly consistency except for a couple of games

I'd go franklin only if u have enough trades left, so if martin or gawn get injured u can sideways trade to another ruckman

@wheels_1987

Lycett

Daz

Hi all,
Who to get in from upgrading petracca to either, Neale, Z Merret or Sam Mitchell?

Jack

Neale

@wheels_1987

Mitchell

Youngy

Neale

MadTiger

Dilemma this week…

Nearing full premo but stuck on a trade or hold decision this week. 8 trades and $1k cash only. Still have Libba M8 and Rich D5, S.Collins D6.

Trade Cox & Petraca to McVeigh & Silvagni or Hold?

Would lose Ruck/Fwd swing but set up def/mid swing with Bailey Williams. Worth the punt or Hold?

Jabba07

Hard to tell depending on your objective/placement in your leagues. Petracca may be a good emergency long term, still looks full of running to me. If you don't need him, now is the time for him to go. I got burnt by AMT so beware the sub-premo in Collins despite a huge 120 last run.

MadTiger

Thanks – currently ranked around 8800 & in top 8 all leagues. Petraca currently M9, with Philips and Trengove.

Scotty

defence clearly needs work, so unless you're safely gonna make finals I'd go down on a rookie to a 102k non-playing Fwd/Ruc to switch with cox for cover and upgrade in defence

MadTiger

Thanks Scotty, I already have Grimley as F8 & Cox R3 swing.

MadTiger

My other option is to go early on trading out Rose & Petraca to get McVeigh into Defence (via DPP swing B.Williams) & Silvagni. That protects the Ruck DPP & opens up the Def/Mid DPP. Better trade?

@wheels_1987

Hold Rich, you probably started with him and theres nothing saying his avg wont go up. trade him out and you could find yourself in the same position. persevere with Rich. I have him and i feel you just need to ride the rollercoaster.

Hold on Silvagni until he gets named for his 3rd

from what i can see , theres no need for you to trade, so dont

MadTiger

Thanks @wheels_1987. With S.Collins at D6 this week it does carry some risk. He could score 30 or 100. Then again, trades are precious and I can wait another week on Silvagni & McVeigh.

tophawk

Hi Community,

Lekdog is on the money with his cheatsheet this week! Bloody nailed it.

I am still chasing the big prize, I ain't letting go of the dream! I am currently ranked 664 and about 800 points off the lead.

I have taken a massive short term risk having traded out Patrick Dangerfield to raise enough cash to complete my team to full premo (POD heavy) with 5 trades left. I am hoping that Danger's output might dip slightly with some tough matches ahead, and grab him back 100K cheaper in the next 2-3 weeks. It is a risk I have to take in order to challenge the top dogs in this comp with my team based around PODS.

My side is as follows;

DEF- Heath Shaw, Sam Docherty, Kade Simpson, Mathew Boyd, Jimmy Bartel, Rory Laird. (EMG- Sam Collins, Nathan Broad)

MID- Joel Selwood, Luke Parker, Rory Sloane, Callan Ward, Gary Ablett, Mathew Priddis, Robbie Gray, Tom Rockliff . (EMG- Jack Trengove, Rhys Mathieson, Tom Phillips)

RUC- Max Gawn, Stefan Martin (EMG- Mason Cox)

FWD- Dustin Martin, Leigh Montagna, Dayne Zorko, Chad Wingard, Brett Deledio, Michael Barlow* (EMG- Christian Petracca, Cameron Loersch)

Will have to play Tracca this week because of Barlow's injury.

With 8 rounds left, can it be done? Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Jabba07

Big ballsack! With 8 trades, I love it. Welcome.

Jabba07

Other feedback – Not sure I like Wingard…. If you want to make ground with a POD I reckon Kennedy, Lynch or Franklin – ie a key forward who can kick 5 and score 160 a few times. Also you might want to consider Hall as swinging emergency across FWD and MID. 5 trades is cutting it fine for this move – who did you trade in Danger's cash?

pod

Tom Lynch at his price, got an itch

Kev

Who will you chop to get Danger back in? It's a huge move to drop him, even with his high b.e this week he's only projected to drop 10-15k.

I get that a big move is needed to catch the leader. If I was in the same situation I'd look elsewhere. That said, I'm ranked around 17k, so carry on haha

Scotty

Best of luck to you mate but i'm not sure I'd classify that as a real POD heavy team.
While he may not have the lowest ownership, JJK (and to a lesser extent Tom Lynch) could potentially shoot you up the rankings if either could kick a few large bags on the run home.
If and when you trade danger back in I believe you're gonna have to bight the bullet and trade out Gaz or Parker due to their ownership being so high and hope they go through a rough patch if you are to get anywhere near the title.

Southern S

Syd SS, Freo DS, Adel SS, Dogs SS, Ess ES, Rich MCG, Bris G, Melb SS.

Personally I like danger's run home I think he'll go big in several of those games but it's a real outside the box move. Good luck!

Man

Sorry TopHawk but I don't see many POD's in there

Moustachio

I think the team is not as POD as you might have been hoping! Looks okay though. Consider getting yourself a decent F7 to expand your bench cover / loophole options (loophole nice for guys like Wingard with big ceiling and big floor).

Don't worry about chasing the #1 spot per se, just do your best to compete against yourself from prev years and you never know where you will end up

@wheels_1987

Barlow is probably going to play
http://www.afl.com.au/news/2016-07-06/shock-retur

Liam

Traded Danger last week to hanners, hope it works.

Shake n bake

I did that move last week top hawk! Brought in priddis for danger. That worked out moved to rank 382 overall. I have nearly $280k in kitty with still 10 trades left. I'm not goin to make any trades this week aswell, I'm thinkin rd 17 I'm goin to bring danger in for libba.

Trent

What is the lowest price docherty is likely to drop to in the coming weeks?

Jabba07

I reckon 520k. Ish.

Deccas

Hey community.

Got the cash to go libra to GAJ, got an easy run home and looking to boost my overall ranking by doing something different.
Current Mid: Danger, Pendles, Parker, Ward, Priddis, Gray, Libba.
Leave me with 2 trades left but don't mind that although risky. All in?

Thoughts please community.

Greg

If you wanna do something real different maybe go Libba to someone like Neale that is lesser owned and hope he can push you further up the rankings if Gaz has a couple of 80-100 games on the way home

Southern S

Hold

@wheels_1987

Go all in mate

No idea what your looking at re: overall position / league wins

but only do this if your desperately fighting to get into your league finals

Jabba07

Holding Dahlhaus with 5 trades left who is probably 3 weeks away. Rest of side full premo. Zero in bank, Petracca on field for him. Would only consider sideways to someone like Kennedy. Twitchy finger. Do I hold firm community?

Moustachio

Someone from community posted a couple days ago that Dahl might be 4-5 weeks (said he has a mate working at WBD that told him)

@wheels_1987

Hold mate

done well so far

Soothsayer

Don't sideways trade petracca, hes just as likely to score well as kennedy

jezzahill

A conundrum community – trade Petracca to Hall this week or Rich to Rance?

Anth

Merrett or Zorko? I was planning to stay away from Merrett but I keep getting burned by him and his awesome scores.

Gord29

Fantastic as always lekdog. One question for the community currently ranked 311 with def of shaw Docherty Simpson Bartel Boyd Collins (Austin and Lee) I'm looking at upgrading either Austin or Lee to any back line player not named thinking Pittard/Liard/McVeigh/JJ

Southern S

I like Laird for consistency doesn't go huge but shouldn't let you down.

McVeigh could be a good POD move but seems more risky looking at his scoring this year.

I think Pittard is behind laird. JJ I'm not convinced on after one game back and only 20 touches.

Gord29

Thanks for the feed back first thought of going liard but to have a chance think I need a pod so the others come up. I must say McVeigh is leading

Southern S

Might be time to go for that POD move if you have a team full of more common players.

You're very close to the top trust your gut it's got you this far!

Gord29

A lot of credit goes to the community.Gut first said liard now it's say McVeigh
Rest of team is Mid Dangerfield, Pendles, Parker, Sloane, Ablett, Shiel, Libba and Rocky (pettraca, Phillips, Joyce)
Rucks Gawn Goldy ( grimly)
Fwd Martin Zorko wells Greene Barlow lids (hall and Kennedy)
Kennedy or pettraca will go down next week and Libba up. Will leave me 5 trades for injury

Southern S

JJ would also be int hat category if he can get back to his form from NAB cup and earlier in the season.

Tough decision and could make the difference for you. Good luck.

Gord29

yea I know but I don't want to wait a week as don't want to drop further back and I'm concerned about him coming straight back in if he will last

johnno2908

The supercoach scoring system hates laird though for some reason. 25 touches, 10 marks, Gets 3 votes in the herald sun, all 10 coaches votes, yet only 96 supercoach points. So frustrating.

Saalih

Have 6 trades and 662k in the bank. 2 premos away from full premo and I am going to trade Petracca and Bailey Williams. I have no idea who to bring for last defense and mid spot. Can afford anyone.

Def= shaw, docherty, Simpson, laird, rance, Ruggles (Collins, b . Williams)
Mid= danger, Ablett, pendlebury, hannebery, Selwood, sloane, ward, Petracca ( trengove, Stewart, Gresham)
Ruc= gawn, Goldstein (grimley)
Fwd= martin, montagna, zorko, deledio, hall, Wells (philips, rose)

Gord29

Depends if you're going for rank or league wins. Try and get a POD for rank but if your going for leagues research the opposition might be safer selecting a common player

Saalih

I'm going for rank and I am thinking of getting Neale for Petracca but the last defense spot has me clueless. Could go Boyd bartel pittard Gibson Zac williams Enright mcveigh johanisen etc.

Gord29

Look at the other teams above you in your league should give you some idea who to pick any of those are good selections. I prefer boyd Bartel and McVeigh

Gord29

Sorry I read that wrong if you're going for rank Pittard, Boyd or McVeigh

Saalih

Lol i am first in my league and ranked 304 and I think I will go either bartel Boyd or Zac williams because of their run home.

Wattsieesq

Williams as a POD

Soothsayer

Is Williams the real deal?

Wattsieesq

Williams has been in the system for 4 years and has been slightly (and I mean very slightly) improved each year. If you take out his high last game of 141 and his low of 52, you have a pretty consistent scorer who's average after removing those two scores is still at his current year average. For a defender to average 90+ is what you want and he is doing that. With GWS's run, he should be a solid pod selection. As with all pods, there is an element of risk. If you are going for rank, you are more likely to take on that risk and stand out.

min0008

Kerridge to Franklin this week or downgrade Menadue to Silvagni next week and get Zorko? After that I'll have 5 trades left with only Libba to upgrade but will hold him till finals.

@wheels_1987

Zorko has been my pick of the year (had him since r.1) however you may have missed the boat, dont bust your trades trying to get him now.

mark

I am currently full premo with 5 trades left and 163k in the bank. Is it worth trading out petracca for delidio and then habe aaron hall as a f7/m9. In doing this ill have to trade Trengrove to silvagni next week via phillips into my midtield bench

DoggieStyle

7 trades left ranked in the top 500

My side…

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

MID: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Hannebery, Neale, Sloane Ablett, Shiel, Priddis Rockliff ( Phillips, Joyce, Stewart)

RUC: Gawn, Goldy (Loersh)

FWD: Martin, Merrett, Montagna, M. Wright, Wells, Hall (Petracca, McCarthy)

$204,200 K in the bank. Should I trade or hold looking to rise in ranks and shatter opponents in leagues!

Scotty

Wright will have to end up being cover so if you want to trade petracca up and put wright on the bench that would work

Caleb

DEF: Shaw, Docherty, Bartel, Gibson, Laird, JJ (Ruggles, Collins)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Ablett, Selwood, Shiel, Treloar, Libba, Parker (Hopper, Stewart, Phillips)
RUC: Gawn, Goldy (Grimley)
FWD: Martin, Wells, Zorko, Merrett, Franklin, Hall (Menadue, Smith)

Got 4 trades left and $213k left in the bank. Currently ranked 8866. Thinking Libba to Neale or Hanners, thoughts?

Hamish

Goldstein or Stef Martin?

@wheels_1987

we need more info to help u

Alister

Is there a good sideways trade for kerrige?

@wheels_1987

did you listen to the podcast?

pod

Tom Lynch

Troy

5 trades left still with Zaha, S.Collins and Petracca to be taded

Hold or trade?

Cozza

Have $536,500 to spend on last defender. Already have Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Laird and Bartel. Thoughts on best available?

Currently tossing up Rance, Williams, JJ or Boyd. McVeigh in there as well, but not sold on him.

Scotty

Not sold on McVeigh or JJ personally. If you're going for overall rank try williams as a POD but for league i'd go rance

Cozza

Thanks Scotty – do you think Boyd is too much of an unknown with JJ's return? Hard to predict which way both of them will go, but early in the season it was JJ over Boyd.

Agree with you on McVeigh – he's had too many low games this year.

Chook

10 trades remaining…Zaka is out for me this week

Thoughts on:
Petracca to Silvagni (F8) Cox on bench as F7
Zaka to Pendles

Cox to Silvagni (F8) Petracca as F7
Zaka to Neale

Pinidu

Lachie Neale, Rory Sloane, Callan Ward, Dylan Shiel or Joel Selwood?
(Going for rank)

Cheers

Moustachio

Order of value: Ward, Neale, Shiel, Selwood, Sloane

Order of points: Hard to rate. Ward and Sloane have nice runs home, but Neale and Selwood should continue to be up there. Would put Shiel last.

@wheels_1987

Ward

Pinidu

Selwood or Sloane

Alex

With 9 trades left, going to upgrade Kerridgr to Hall or Franklin,?

@wheels_1987

Franky

Brett

Tossed up the idea of gaff last week as a great potential coverage trade for those with the luxury for a m9

Anyones throughts on greesham – motlop this week 80k spend , opens up a swing ! he's been mighty average the last mnth , but is the 14th highest scoring forward , can go massive and geelong has a great finals draw 370k , looks a steal

Moustachio

Only do it if planning to loophole him. He is too unreliable as cover for me.

Dean

Here is my current side:

DEF: Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Rance, Rich, Laird (Collins, Williams)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Hanners, Ward, GAJ, Steven, Libba, Wines (Dunkley, Trengove, Mathieson)
RUCK: Gawn, Goldy (Cox)
FWD: Martin, Merrett, Montagna, Motlop, Wells, Hall (Phillips, Wyatt)

I have had a shocking season currently ranked a shitty 4648 – My goal is to try and finish in the top 1000 as I have been there for the past 5 years, I don't care about league.

Problem is I only have 6 trades left considering to trade Libba to Parker as his price has dropped crazy low and now with a B/E of 27 he just seems to good to pass up. Other then that I want to bring in Zorko in my forward line and keep Motlop as F7 at some point, however to do that means I will need to trade minimum two players to generate enough cash.

Thoughts community?

Moustachio

Can you save a trade by picking up someone cheap eg Buddy instead of Zorko. Don't see Zorko averaging heaps more than Buddy from here on

Jon

Who to get rid of in order out of Tippa, Petracca and Kerridge?

@wheels_1987

Tippa, Kerridge, Pet

CapTkAoS

I've got the same problem. Im going to save Kerridge to last because he has more AFL pre-seasons behind him. It might mean he handles the second half of the season a bit better. Just hoping his price doesnt fall too much. Tippa looks cooked to me. Petracca I'm not as sure and looks to have a bit bigger ceiling…..so I'd be Tippa, Petracca, Kerridge. I might even hold Kerridge as a F9/M7 swing all season. Less chance of getting dropped if his form tapers off.

CapTkAos

F7/M9

Tragedy

Selwood or Sloane?

@wheels_1987

Sloan

pod

easy one, Selwood

Jack

Who should score more SC this week out of S. Collins and S. Lycett? I want to trade Brand to Lycett by swinging Suckling back to my defence as D6 for now, so I don't have to play Collins as D6 for this week, plus Lycett is great cover for my rucks (Gawn/Martin), is it a week too early to bring him in, considering he's playing against Goldy?

Tommo09

Thoughts on Josh Kennedy, Toby Greene and Tom Lynch?
If I don't have enough for Montagna and even if I do, I may get one of these guys?
I like Kennedy but has a tough run home and Lynch and Greene have a good run home
Thanks in advance community

Craig

Toby greene could be a great selection if he finds consistency – but be prepared for a rollercoaster ride if you pick him up

johnno2908

I like the idea of the key forward if you are going for overall and they can be loopholed with a stable F6. Can even chuck motlop into that mix I reckon. Has the key forward ceiling and floor, but has the mid/fwd swing. Geelong also play 3x Friday night games in the next 4 weeks and the other game is a Saturday which I can still loophole with Greene. That last bit probably doesnt help you though.

Tommo09

I like Kennedy for his ceiling and Greene for his run home

pod

Tom Lynch is by far the player with most potential to be a star, but is he there yet?? I'm willing to have a crack at his current price.

Brent

All premo with 12 trades left….looking to trade Libs to Neale, Mitchell, Merrett or ward….leaning towards Merrett cos of ddp any thoughts?

Grant

Neale offers massive unique to your team, only in 7% of teams and is ultra consistent

Rick Grimes

What's your team look like?

Grant Flack

Assistance requested – forwards need help, but should I load up the mids first??

DEF- Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Burgoyne, McVeigh, Rory Laird. (Collins, Brown)

MID- Danger, Luke Parker, Ward, Ablett, Sheil, Gibbs, Liber, Petracca . (Gresham, Dunkley, Stewart)

RUC- Gawn, Goldy (Grimley)

FWD- Merrett, Kennedy, Riewoldt, Kerridge, Wells, Greene (Cox, Phillips)

Have 9 trades and $292k in the bank.

Thinking of trading Petracca and Cox for Silvagni and Neale

Would leave forward line needing some major work over the next two weeks but not sure there's a better move. Are there any rookie mids that I could downgrade to to then uptrade Cox to and wait on Silvagni??

Loop

What are the differences in strategy for league wins and going for ranking? Is it possible to do both?

@wheels_1987

Rank means you do whatever you can get finish #1 overall
League = if your playing bottom of ladder, or will make finals easy you may choose not to trade at all when other players would be trading

Flykicks

7 Trades – 400k I'm in top 500
Def: Shaw, Bartel, Laird, Docherty, Simpson, Boyd (Pittard Enright)
Mid: Ablett, Danger, Pendles, Hanners, Neale, Selwood, Parker, Sloane (Ward Treloar Bont)
Ruck: Goldy, Gawn (Grimley)
Fwd: Zorko, D Martin, ZMerrett, JJK, Montagna, Buddy (Gunston, Menadue)

Do I look at getting rid of Menadue ?

Thanks for your help

MY TWO CENTS

No he could outscore them all as that is what happens in fairy land.

pod

hey fly kicks, your team is VERY GOOD
Def – Is the best SC Def I have seen so far this year (bench is top notch)
Mid – No problems, very strong
Rck: Awesome!
Fwd: Couldn't be better
..so IMO, with 7 trades and $400K.. kick back and smoke a few wanna beeeeee's

pod

p.s. can I have some of your winnings??

Flykicks

lol you wish haha… long way to go

The Ranger

Only seven trades and 400K left?! Not having a good year then Flykicks?

Flykicks

Hopefully no injuries….hope Goldy stays fit

pod

lol what is your team in dollars, what is your team worth?

Flykicks

Topped $14m

Rick Grimes

This team does not exist. It would be impossible to obtain simply because there haven't been enough decent rookies to achieve that sort of team value.

MY TWO CENTS

It does exist in fairy land

SCMouse

lol fairy land sounds like a good name for a team 🙂

MY TWO CENTS

It does exist. AMAZING!

Zorkobaby

Just figured out that team started in round 2

SCMouse

GOLD could be a first to win from R2 start

Armfield

Nah it is legit saw it on another forum too

MY TWO CENTS

Could be stirring up that site too.
Easy to prove.

Flykicks if this is legit post your exact rank ie 467 and we can all go look it up on the ST website.

MY TWO CENTS

SC (supercoach) stupid auto correct

Higgos Dog

You can fake that too

Grahame Lebroy

Do tell?

Flykicks

My worries are no ruck cover, Menadue and no good DPP swings so feeling a little vunerable and just trying to sure up so all bases are covered.

Higgo's Dog

Confirmed BARLOW is OUT this week on 6PR

Nelson

He's gonna play now

Higgo's Dog

Hey? source

Steeeve

It was a joke son

Higgo's Dog

ooh haha

pete

if your going to trade in a non playing rookie for loop wich team would you go for ,which team has the most sunday games is it the eagles?

Matty

Hey community last midfield upgrade out of Parker, Ward or Shiel I'm liking ward or Shiel for the pods and there run home. Cheers community

Wattsieesq

Ward is not a pod. If you are looking for a pod, go Shiel.

Matty

Ward only in just over 13% compared to parker over 48%

Wattsieesq

I never said Parker is a pod. A pod is a player with less than 10% ownership. Ward is not a pod.

Wattsieesq

And Parker is not a pod either

ymams

Desperately need some advice. Team is nearly full premo (1 left in defence). I have one trade left – what should I do?

Collins > Rance / McVeigh
Libba > Pendles
WInes > Pendles

Much appreciated!

murray

hold

murray

zac Williams or McVeigh??

pod

I picked up McVeigh 2 weeks ago, couldn't be happier

murray

thanks Pod, more upside for mcveigh than Williams, even though Williams has more consistent scoring pattern

murray

Ward or Hanneberry for my last premo spot in the mids??

pod

i've created visuals for quick reference (graphs) on year to date performances. What I've noticed is Ward is volatile (up & down) while Hanners is steady, although recent form is below average. I have Hanners and I'm hoping he returns to early season form (confident he will).

murray

thanks Pod, Hanners has been so consistent all season and will probably hit his BE this week, Ward is a bit more volatile and more scores under 100.

pod

has anyone else noticed your SC team re-set to round 15 line-up?? I made 2 trades yesterday now they have reversed???

Woodman

Heres my side:

Bcks: Shaw, Simpson, Bartel, Gibson, McVeigh, Laird (Collins, Ashby)
Mids: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Selwood, Parker, Sloane, Ward, Ablett, Libba (Trengove, Phillips, Reid)
Rcks: Gawn, Goldstein (Goetz)
Fwds: Martin, Montagna, Gunston, Barlow, Hall, Deledio (Petracca, Cox)

I have five trades left with 139k in the kitty. With Barlow possibly being out as the latest news I'm thinking of going Petracca up to Buddy. This will allow someone like Hall to cover the mids and forwards. Will upgrade libba just before finals. Doggies have a good draw from here on in. Do I do the trade or hold? Thoughts?

Rick Grimes

Sounds like a good move. Franklin has been pretty consistent this year, and we know he can go huge.

Steeeve

Danger the obvious VC.
Gaz or Gawn for the C?

Beezneez

Ranked 1100ish after dropping ranking over the byes. Have 9 trades left. This might sound like a stupid question and think I know the answer but: Traded in Montagna (for Kerridge) last week mainly in order to field 18 players and thinking to see what Hall did with a view to trading him. Now I have Hall, Greene and Montagna fighting for F5 & 6. I'm looking at two options:

Really want Boyd and McVeigh or JJ to shore up my defence (currently containing B Smith and Adams on field – also have Shaw, Laird, Docherty and Simpson (Collins and Tucker on bench). Not sold on Broad but could be a downgrade option for Tucker.

option 1: round 16: Montagna, Hall or Greene to Boyd (swing Adams to fwd).
Adams to Silvagni (+$243K).

round 17: Tucker or B Smith to McVeigh/JJ
Libba to Hannebery/Neale

option 2: round 16 Stewart/Trengove to Silvagni (swing any of 8 mid/fwds to mid – thinking T Greene as emergency and if he scores
well can loophole him for Libba with MacPherson.

Adams to Boyd (0.9K balance)

will then have to find other ways to get in McVeigh/JJ and Hanneberry/Neale/Selwood etc. to achieves full premo.

I guess with option two I'm not getting rid of a sub premo and could have decent bench cover. Have never picked Montagna before and am kicking myself i didn't just trade Kerridge to Boyd (lesson learnt).

Any thoughts?

big league game this week
This week im trading out petracca but since barlow isnt playing, do i bring in a forward premo (Montanga or Lids) or play menadue and bring in stef via blicavs dpp

Steeeve

Big league game and you are considering playing Menadue?

Guys can't decide between these options.

1. Go Petracca straight to Zach Merrett

2. Downgrade petracca to Silvagni and upgrade Libba to Hannebery, Coniglio or Sloane

In the Nick of Time

I feel that Petracca is a more immediate concern. Do you have adequate bench cover though? Otherwise I'd go straight for Coniglio.

John

My forward line is Dusty, Lids, Wells, Zorko, M.Wright and petracca with my bench as James rose and grimley.

Is Shaw a viable C option this week?
Don't want to miss out on Danger but don't want to risk the C on Shaw
ATM have Shaw VC, Rocky C
Thoughts???

For Crying Out Loud

Goldy or Martin?

If I get Martin, I can afford Merrit in the Forward Line.

If I get Goldy I can get Buddy…..

Decisions mmmmm

Thanks in advance community!
