Steeeve

Everything I do for the next two rounds will have one purpose in mind. Get Pendles. Gonna feel like robbery snaffling him for $550K.

Holty

Agreed steeve. Was looking at hanners but as i only have 1 mid premo spot available, it would be stupid not to wait on pendles

Tyruddanaut

I'm going to chuck him in for that

Dave

Is it worth going Hannan/ Eddy to Hardwick?

Dave

Already have Fisher

wightyswarriors

Did you get fisher pre bubble ?

Dave

No, trading him in this week for SPP

Tyruddanaut

Depends how many trades you have left. I have to struggle to only do one more trade by bye rounds and you shouldn't go too low. But otherwise Eddy would be a valuable trade

Dane

Can people see Sloane maintaning a 120+ average or is this just 'Chasing points'

Daz

Short answer to your question is yes but Why bother at 645k, if you go buying at a premium you will struggle to fully upgrade team with cash gen this yr. Look at players bottoming out i.e. Treloar, Parker, Hanners, dusty next week. I don't think i would want to pay above 550k for any premium i pick up after rd1. But thats my opinion:-)

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

No reason why he shouldn't go very close to that average for the year, the mans a gun, Adelaides draw is opening up extremely well also which could surely only see him maintain or even improve on what he's done thus far.

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

Btw not saying to go pay that price for him, just of the opinion that yes he will average 120+

INPieman

This is not the season to be buying anyone over 550K IMO. Unless you have rookies no one knows about

SF4

Will most likely be a top midfielder but if you haven't got pendles, hanners, Cripps, Parker or dusty who are near rock bottom I would have them as better trade in options as Sloane as they are cheaper and will provide similar scores.

whatyasmokin

But they are not producing similar scores, that's the thing.

They will not be top 10 mids in 2017.

Moustachio

Will provide, not have provided. It's irrelevant what they score before you get them. Only matters what they score for you.

hedski

Great point Stash. Here on in matters not point chasing.

whatyasmokin

Agreed, but Cripps and Parker are unlikely to score top ten from here on.

Trent

My thoughts exactly, hence why I traded Sloane in this week. I know he is at an elevated price, but damn am I missing out on points keeping swallow, who is now out this week. I have all the right rookies, projected now to get 2330 with Sloane, things are looking up. Worth the extra cash I had saved

whatyasmokin

Cripps and Parker*

Holty

He maybe tempting after the byes i think. Has Brisbane just before and no doubt Robbo will go straight to Sloane and tag the absolute c..p out of him.

Derek

Brad Crouch is playing, will take points away. Scott Thompson will play this week, will take points away.

there is only one way for Sloane's average to go……..

Beezneez

He scored 139 with the Crouch brothers playing last week. Also, Thompson will be playing SANFL for awhile IMO. Sloane gets possessions and takes contested marks all over the ground to increase his points tally. Was hoping Murphy would have been out this week so taht it would have been an easy decision to make it a simple swap to Sloane but am now rethinking that move to assess Murphy for another week. Also, am baulking at the $670K price tag. It pays to be patient – I was thinking last week to trade Treloar for Sloane and looked what happened – Treloar outscored Sloane.

The Numbers Man

Depends, things to consider:

– 2014 he averaged 114
– 2015 he averaged 105
– 2016 he averaged 109

Also he's never averaged over 115 for a year. Let's assume he averages exactly 120 at the end of the season, that means from here on in he would need to average 116.8 for his remaining 17 games. Or more conservatively, let's say he finishes the season on an average of 115 – that would mean he would need to average 110.4 for his remaining 17 games.

Alternatively you have someone like Parker who's currently averaging 90 after five games. Let's assume he finishes the season averaging 105 (after last year with a season average of 112) he would need to score at an average of 109.3 for the rest of the season to finish on an average of 105.

Which one to pick?

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

A highlight of every Tuesday (or Thursday in this case)
Thanks Jock and the boys! One question, bring in Hannebery this week or just wait one more to confirm that this proven premium is back?

INPieman

I got him in last week. Arbitrage

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

Had to use google on that one haha thanks INPieman, he's currently in πŸ˜‰

INPieman

Quite simply my friend it means Buy low Sell High. The name of the game & the name of my team with INP in front of it of course

Pablo

Thanx Jock. Great podcast. Good to hear some of the (other) community greats contributing pearls of wisdom. Question: At what point do we cut Eddy lose? What are his chances of playing before the R9 bye?

INPieman

He's not worth anything to get rid of. He played round 1 so they must rate him. I'm holding for a bit longer

INPieman

The only person on Port's injury list is Travis Boak. That will no doubt change at some point. It has to. And he will get another crack

Derek

i think Dixson died again last week

DavidSA

Eddy just needs 2 more games b4 byes to make good enough coin

Pablo

Thats what i am hoping for, but unless he gets picked this week, i doubt it will happen. I live in hope.

poloko48

No game for him this week against a team like Brizzy = no more games for Eddy unless injuries crop up.

hedski

#see dead Dixon

Tommo09

Trading Roughy to Fisher
Then I have 480k

Do I downgrade O'Meara to Hardwick as well or wait for Black next week?

These are the players I'm looking to upgrade to
Shaw Docherty Lloyd/Adams/Montagna
Pendles Rocky/Dusty
Martin
NRoo Dahl Macrae Greene/Buddy

Kev

Nice bank that, Tommo. I'd paint the face and grab a mid premo for JOM. Dusty and Pendles have huge b.e's this week and will be much cheaper if you hold off.

Plenty of fallen premo's in the 520-580k range. Cripps, Wines, Zerrett and Sydney mids are standouts

Moustachio

Hell yeah. I do myself up like braveheart every thurs night at the trade table.

Tommo09

Going to go Rough and SPP to fisher and Balic
691k in bank
Upgrade next few weeks

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

2018 SUPERCOACH RELEVANCE:
FEVOLA ON THE COMEBACK TRAIL!
LOCK HIM IN EDDIE! πŸ™‚

INPieman

Better than Chris Mayne. Who can't even get a kick in the VFL

leedy

Freo's revenge for Jack Anthony πŸ™‚

Russty_

Fev's probably better than most of the Pie's fwd line right now, even though he is as he described, "fat as a house", at least he knew how to find the goals, and take a mark, if he loses 20 kilos, they should give him a go! lol

The Goonies

After dealing with under strength forward line, and Nick Riewoldt tricking me in the second round…..
Roughie > Macrae
Swallow > Tex Walker ( POD/ Adelaide smashing everyone's backdoors in)

Leaves me with 25 trades and 36k in bank.
Thoughts?

Big M

for what it's worth, think there are better options that Tex, I reckon he is just to up & down, relies too heavily on scoring which historically he does not do week in week out

The Goonies

Similar to JJK though, who do you think will be top 6?
Current fwd line (pre trades is)
Dahl, Rough, WHE, Butler, parfett, Taranto, Hannan, Eddy.

hedski

Hell of a fwd line you have there, TRADE!!

Tyruddanaut

Tex might go down but I am sure on him to remain top 10

Cr0magn0n

Okay community, I agree that buying Pendles cheap is an awesome opportunity. But…. Anyone have the feeling he is playing sore and/or carrying an injury? Anyone in the know re: Collingwood?

Derek

i saw Wells at more center bounces than pendles on the weekend. didn't like the look of that.

Skindog

The whole team is playing with an injury, it's called collingwont,,

Sauce

I'm gonning to wait one more week on pendles because if he is injured it is a wasted trade and if he scores well his break even is 125 so he won't go up too much

whatyasmokin

Pendlebury's BE is 187.

Wait a couple of weeks and get him for peanuts.

Derek

will drop say $25k this week, and then another $15k the following week. Once the 67 is gone from his average his price will jump up again. so the rock bottom will be $555k…. unless he has another stinker

wait two weeks

Wellsey

Can Jock wield his influence and ask one of the St. Kilda boys to give Wayno a handcuff signal after a goal to lift his spirits?

Brad

this is an aggressive trade, but would marchbank to Hibbard (Melb) me a good trade or to early?

Sauce

To early marchbank has some generation left and wait on hibbard

Russty_

Hibberd's legs are made of Paper Mache, I wouldn't trade him in …ever.

Bois

For Pendlebury owners, he posted on his instagram "ps I'm not injured, just played sh*t"

INPieman

BS. Not buying into that. He couldn't run. That's quite an important aspect of afl football. Scoring 67 walking is a fair effort

Moustachio

Not all of the story. He spent 14 mins on the bench at one point.

INPieman

That was the previous game against the saints Moustachio. As soon as he came back on in the last he grabbed his right hammy but kept going at snails pace

Henry

Based on his gps it was his highest running game for the entire season. So dno why you're saying he cant run. Most k's clocked up whole year.

Kyle

Will Jobe Watson improve or is it time to get rid of him

Cr0magn0n

I would view Jobe as a stepping stone, a means to make some cash whilst achieving some okay output. No way he will be a top 8 midfielder. Just get on SC and look at his price projections, if his BE eclipses his average then it's time to go.

whatyasmokin

I'd use him as a stepping stone, step on his head and pick someone else pronto haha

Sauce

Thoughts on bringing Parker in this week keep in mind I can't afford hannerberry

whatyasmokin

Risky.

hedski

Donut, that was meant to be DO IT.

zakvb

swallow down to fisher for 250k in the bank
next round trade out parfitt and dan butler for aaron black and 600k+ premo
or
swallow and butler out this week for fisher and any premo fwd excluding rooey
currently ranked 2000th overall help very appreciated

whatyasmokin

Butler has a projected price change of 20K………look at the breakevens!

zakvb

looking to get full premo as soon as possible though and could change butler to parfitt and get a fallen mid premo like parker or cripps but not convinced they will return to ultra premium status

SirSamuel016

Thinking I'll trade Petrovski-Seton and D.Swallow this round. Got 257k in the bank, 26 trades left. Was thinking of bringing in a midfield premo like Rockliff, Pendles or Hanners, and bringing in a rookie to get some more cash back in the bank. Any thoughts/suggestions on that or whether I should focus on another part of the team? Here's the team: http://i.imgur.com/vnIzZ9b.png

whatyasmokin

So you did no trades last week? That picture is old.

SirSamuel016

Yeah mate, didn't make any trades in the end.

who Cares

Marchbank BE 34 > Fisher via Adams swinging back into defence
Butler BE 30 > Franklin

But sad to let go of these two rookies who most probably will both still make 15k each this week, but I can't see getting Franklin any cheaper time for an aggressive paint the fence.

This brings my def and fwd line to 5/1

whatyasmokin

Franklin's BE is 124, Franklin can easily get cheaper, or at least stay about the same value.

You can't afford to cull good rookies early.

Cr0magn0n

He's absolutely right!

DavidSA

Agree with above hold on those rookies

Sauce

PLEASE HELP!!!!!

do I go:
Swallow- fisher
WHE- Balic (if named)
And cop 1 less premo for a week

Or

Swallow- Parker ( or someone under 530K)
WHE- Balic

whatyasmokin

1. Don't settle on players you don't actually want due to price.

Derek

yep. i hate when people ask for a player under $XXX price.

I know exactly who i want in my final team, knew it 6 weeks ago. Its just a process of getting them at the right price.

Pablo

I keep referring back to my Higganator sheet when i have my starting and my ideal final lineup to ensure i stay focused the end game. Obviously, there may be tweaks along the way with injury etc, but i find it helpful.

Moustachio

Depends if playing for rank or league. Paying 100k extra for +2 ppg highly questionable if going for overall…

redherringfc

Macrae is about 530, do you have him, can you afford him?

Declan

Love the work Jock, keep it up.

Everyone talking about Sydney mids and easy run. Is anyone considering bringing Buddy. Got a nice 4 games should hopefully score well and only 464k. Thoughts community.

whatyasmokin

Plenty are talking about buddy, good option but don't trade out rookies early to get him. He still has a 124 BE.

Declan

WHE to buddy for 140k? Worth it?

pod

Buddy is value and you know you're going to kick yourself if you miss the boat. His B/E is easy to reach, he's likely to go huge against a weak Blues backline, and the Swans are about to go bang.

who Cares

Wait one more week, I know it's a bit crazy but with BE 124 even if he scores 100-110 he will leak some more cash then will sky rocket

Declan

Was planning on going up to Martin and Pendles next week tho, so only way of getting all 3 ASAP without leaking most cash is to take lance this week and hope he can belt out about 5 goals and 115-125sc. Is this trade option smart or not? Thanks

Northerner

Pendles you don't need next week. Week after he'll likely be cheapest.

Steeeve

Really eye opening Jock about Swallow not making any more money before round 9. For me it's either cull him now or wait until well after his bye for a final upgrade/m9 situation.
Kind of hoping Balic is back this round might double downgrade WHE to Balic, Swallow to Fisher. Should give me heaps of cash for Pendles plus another upgrade soon after.

DavidSA

Doing one trade this week Parfitt to Fisher banking 125k
Parfitt with last 3 scores of 99, 52, 51 the 99 leaving his caluculations now has a BE of 39

Please help

Is Ablett a must upgrade? Thinking of pendles straight swap in couple of weeks

Holty

Im holding. Not performing as well as id like but neither is Pendles. GAJ is one big game away to boost his average to 105+. Surely there must be bigger priorities in your side then doing this trade?

Jono

Cripps v Hanners v Titch?

pod

Cripps starting to warm up

Sauce

Hanners will be top 10 mids in my view

Steeeve

Not too worried about Ocker. Think Crouching may have been about 30 rum cans deep talking to his illegitimate child!

INPieman

Might have had a couple under the belt lol

Skindog

A couple? Couple of slabs??

OldOcker

Well deserved couple but the wisdom was still there. lol

Skindog

Yes it was oldocker, just a tad slurry lol

Skindog

He might have to rethink the rum cans if he can't remember his own kids,,,lol

Tyruddanaut

Comment deleted haha

Daniel Z

Can someone paraphrase?

hedski

Aahh, the communists at it again.

Skindog

Didnt think it was bad,

JDP

Would love your thoughts on Which fwd to bring in this week

Buddy, Tex or Greene

Have Dahl & Macrae in team and Buddy has same bye round

Cheers for thoughts

b_sh3p

Greene

Matt

Looking for a promo mid to trade in, I've narrowed down to Hannebery and tmitch… thoughts guys?

hedski

That chick in the tight promo top.

Daniel Z

Has a nice mid. A bit rough up top though…

Baggy pants

How is everyone dealing with the byes and the temptation to bring in fallen premiums that may not fit your bye structure. I would love to trade in Hanners but it just gives me another round 11 bye player. Not sure what to do. Do we need a couple of round 9 bye players to help take the pressure of the other weeks.

RobDog

That has been my strategy all season. Am holding trades and will aim to bring in Gray or Wines after Round 9. My Round 12 can fit another premo or 2, so looking at Dusty if he picks up. Round 13 can't fit any more without it costing me, so will have to wait on Pendles, and Hanners is in the same boat for Round 11. Am scoring ok, but 500 off the leaders so not really in the hunt for rankings. Holding trades and working around my bye structures for league wins.

Juzzy

Like the way you are thinking Baggy.

I have too many round 11 premos. Having a very close look at Shuey and Priddis right now and bypassing the Hanners bargain.

Don't mind the idea of going early on a Gray, Wines or GAJ either if you have reliable bench cover (but who has …)

Steve

Lads, it pains me to say that I'm already on 24 trades due to unfortunate premium injuries and rookie corrections.
The prospect of getting Pendles in at ~$550k is extremely arousing, but it would translate into making 2 further trades in the next two weeks.
Is it worth jumping on Zac Fisher and grabbing Pendles next week or is my trade situation too dire at this point of the season?

Any thoughts appreciated community!

BradK

Trade hard mate. Get to full premium, and good full premiums, as fast as possible. Then hope you have enough to cover injuries. Thats how you win, you just have to be lucky.

* I've finished top 20, and in top 200 the last two years, and are currently on 1200.

Declan

No barrett, no eddy!! Time to cull eddy, or focus on upgrades?

The Ranger

SPS and Swallow are gone this week.
Fisher and A.N.Other Rookie coming in.
$660K in the bank for next weeks shopping.
BANG! BANG!

HarryO

is down grading JOM to fisher this week and upgrade swallow to a low premo next weeek a good idea?

Finnius123

Other way around as Jaegar is playing this week and swallow is not.

SC17

Thinking of going Roughy and Swallow to Selwood/Zorko and Fisher.
Would you rather have Selwood, Zorko or someone else

Cold_Case

I'm thinking of bringing in selwood cause of his bye round

Finnius123

Zerrett, Treloar, Hanners & even pendles cheaper options who will average the same – however like Selwood if you are choosing out of the two

Cold_Case

Good point. Now i get to hit reverse trade for the 900th time this week

HarryO

dont spend over 550k if u can avoid it mate.. so much value in fallen premos!

The BONT

Pickett to Balic how is that for a trade or will S.Hill kick him out when he comes better with his hammy

Finnius123

Hill out for four weeks which should have your cash done by then anyways. Balic in best 22 at Freo at the moment

redherringfc

but can he score anything? Didn't his 73 include a high point scoring, last quarter goal?
I think Ross did us a favour last week, so we could bring in others this week.

hedski

A lot of scores come from cheap goals

whatyasmokin

Four weeks isn't long enough to cull a rookie.

SirSamuel016

The selections for this round have ruined my ideal trade of Petrovski-Seton and D.Swallow for Hanners and Balic as I'll now be taking a duck egg in either the forwardline or midfield now. Do I stick with the trade and cop the egg or should I go Swallow for Hanners and Ainsworth/Pickett for Balic to avoid the egg?

Finnius123

Swallow not named either

SirSamuel016

Yeah, I know that. Swallow's going either way so I don't need to worry about him, but do I hold Seton for a week even if it costs me a bit of cash to avoid the ol' duck egg or trade him out now to be better off in the long run? I'm very unsure what to do.

Finnius123

The question is this: Are you willing top cop a max 10k loss for a zero? I personally would not be. Get rid of Pickett. He has hit his BE pretty much and been dropped, whilst not looking likely to get recalled.

SirSamuel016

Fair point. So I should prioritize trading Pickett out over Seton? And thanks for the advice dude!

Finnius123

I personally would be yes. Just get rid of SPS next week – and for pendles!

whatyasmokin

You can't afford a zero…………..it's not rocket science.

Plus Pickett not playing, SPS playing…..could get another 100+ who knows.

Simple logic is needed here.

iLoveNMFC

Which 2 of Newman, Hampton and Marchbank on field?

AND

Balic or Hannan on field?

tophawk

I reckon Newman and Hampton onfield in your backline and Balic onfield in your forward line. Cheers

Top Gun

Newman and Marchbank to me but loophole where you can.

Pman

Have the same query with those 3 in my backline too and probably leaning towards Newman and Marchbank on field and Hampton as Emergency. Hampton did score a great 100 last week but has stunk it up a few times and the other two are probably a bit more consistent and should pump out 75+ whereas Hampton could leave a dirty skidmark in the Reg Grundy's with a 50 odd.

iLoveNMFC

Cheers lads.

Benschke

So we all hear the rhetoric about not trading out our Premiums & with good reason. I have Sandilands, Ryder & Witts(E) as my Rucks & also have Nankervis in my FWD line. I only have about $40K in the bank & badly need some cash to start upgrading over the next few weeks. I am considering trading out this week D Swallow & Ryder in a double downgrade for Balic & Z Fisher & moving Nankervis into the Ruck.

Ryder is dragging the chain & only averaging 83. So my question is, do you class Ryder as a Premium & do you see him averaging 100+ for the remainder of the season?

Appreciate your help!!

HarryO

great move mate. im also doing a double downgrade to those exact rookies to generate the cash for pendles zerrett hanneberry etc in coming weeks. nank swap into the ruck is a smart move.

Swans2012

I'd leave nank forward and chop Ryder to a non playing R/f loophole then play witts on the field. Witts is a MUCH better on field option than any of your forward rookies imo. Then Upgrade witts to a premium ruck in a few weeks. Then fisher or balic for swallow and you've got buttloads of cash for the next couple of upgrades and your scoring hasn't taken a hit…..

Dutch

Agree with swannie's suggestions, you are wasting witts on the bench

Northerner

That's the go

Pman

Ryder has to go IMO as he is too incosistent and has missed a year of footy and is generally susceptible to an injury and/or suspension so it's likely he will miss games at some stage. I'd be looking to upgrade him Stef Martin or Brodie Grundy and trade Witts (if you desperately need cash generation) to Strndica (R/Fwd) and keep Nank in Fwd line but have swing set if the other two "set and forget" ruckman get injured.

Finnius123

Pick two out of: Balic, butler, Parfitt, Hannan, Fisher and SPP to start onfield.

gator59

spp and butler

HarryO

butler and possibly SPP.

tophawk

Balic and Butler

Colin

Butler and SPP

I'm a crows fan, and one downer of our season so far is our shocking record against small forwards, all opposition small Fwds kick multiple against us and I expect butler/Castgna to get on the board this week.

Spp to spend more time on ground / midfield due to travis boak injury! Should have a good week!

garfield_da_cat

What are peoples thoughts on this move SPP to Myers and Steele to Macrae I have 25 trades left and 52k in the bank

Top Gun

Myers isn't playing? I would wait until he gets a gig.

redherringfc

i missed the Newman boat (i was hiking so no mobile service over 2 weekends) but i still think i should bring him in. He's just over $200k. i have a few, low scoring rookies (SPP, EVW, Taranto) on the field. Newman seems like i can put him in d6 ( EVW to bench) for a few weeks, take 80 odd points and worry about my other lines, until he tops out.
He seems like a better money maker, even at 200k, than any other rookies this round.
Is my logic sound?

HarryO

worried about his JS as his only just come back in from a week out at 200k his dear. look at maybe a tom williamson whose cheaper and better JS?

Captain Risky

Supercoach projections are suggesting that ….

Newman has another 190K (to 390k) over the next 5 weeks, topping out at 440k by EOY.
Williamson projection 5 weeks around 140K (312k) , topping out at 350k

Obviously you have missed the 1st prices rises for each, but still some money to be made, depending really on Job security and future scoring.. Each will make more than SPP and Taranto, but you could make just as much out of a new rookie I would think.

Your team, your trades, your decision!

Captain Risky

That said, i'd happily take 140 or 190 K from Hannan or Parfitt, & others would add Barrett, Pickett, Long, Eddy etc..

The backline rookies seem to have more scoring potential thus far.

jimmy

now that teams have dropped what can i do with my SC team

DEF: Laird, Howe, Lloyd, Otten, Marcbank, Hampton (Newman, Stewart)
MID: Rockliff, Danger, Fyfe, Mundy, Pendles, Priddis, Ablett, Fisher (SPP, Fox, Barret)
RCK: Nankervis, Sandilands (Strandica)
FWD: Macrae, JJK, Greene, Butler, Houstan, Parfitt (Pickett, Eddy)

have $98,200 in the kitty and 26 trades left thoughts please

Lee

Balic for spp and upgrade butler parfit or houston to premo

Pom

Fox got downgraded. Eddy not even getting emergency gig, Pickett has gone full potato, Barrett can't get into lions team.
All other rookies playing and making coin so hold. SPP near end though.
Downgrade options are pretty much Hardwick at Hawks and Balic at Freo. Both questionable job security really.
I would get rid of one of eddy/Pickett so you at least have fwd bench cover making coin. Balic is mid/fwd if that helps.
Good luck mate.

Ken

Who to trade out first out of SPP and WHE? Feel WHE might have a little bit more left in him whilst SPP has just hit a wall?

marcusproudson

I agree SPP is on my trade list too. WHE maybe a few more weeks to go until bye rounds

Jackson

I'd persist with SPP one more week, with travis boak out,expect him to have more time in the guts therefore more ball. For me WHE is the one to go.

relton

i feel a double downgrade week on the cards.. is WHE time come to an end and JOM/swallow?? appreciate your thoughts community i want balic and fisher ideally

Dean

Get rid of Swallow seeing he is dropped bring in Fisher.
I'm holding WHE at the moment because his scores thus far are 88,120,71,70 & 51 with an average of 80 – So your chances of WHE scoring 70+ seem a lot more consistent when compared to JOM who has scored 71,89,44 with a average of 68

marcusproudson

So guys. Who should I field out of the following. Can pick one per position: backs Hampton or Newman. Mids parfitt or fisher. Forwards WHE or Houston.

Dean

Newman, Parfitt & WHE are the ones im keeping on ground. Although the Hampton/Newman conundrum is hard so follow your gut mate.

marcusproudson

Mmmm. I also don't trust WHE. He's very inconsistent. I where as Houston goes 70-80 every week.. decisions decisions

FearTheBeard

Sooo Balic or Fisher??!

relton

why not both ?

tophawk

Balic

relton

whose the keeper of JOM or swallow for future round points an cash generation? need to cull one of them this week

Dean

Swallow is out so chop him first

Dean

JOM is back this week

Derek

if he plays he stays

hedski

Neither

Mike

Trade out Taranto or SPP?

tophawk

Neither. Both playing this week with low BE'S of 38 and 41 respectively. Will make more cash.

Mike

Need to get Fisher in though. Do you suggest I trade out Barrett, Eddy instead? Or even WHE?

Joshua

WHE

Adrian

Which one should l do:

M.Hibberd to Fisher – non playing rookie to playing rookie on the bubble; or
Swallow to Fisher – and cash it up

AND

WHE to Balic

Maybe l am better on keeping swallow and trading a non playing rookie in Hibberd to Fisher?

marcusproudson

Swallow is out too.?

tophawk

Get rid of David Swallow. Not playing this week. (Rested) Keep Hibberd around for loopholing, and trade in Balic. Keep WHE for now. His BE is manageable at 70. Then bang bang next week.

Pretty Set on Trading out Swallow and Taranto, my dilemma is what sort of a trade I should go with? I have 160k in the bank.

Option 1: Double downgrade for maximum cash generation with fisher and balic, means I will have to start parfitt or fisher for this week. In the coming weeks I can then go bang bang with pendles and Hannebery, or a fwd premo.

Option 2: Upgrade, downgrade. Most likely fisher and Hanners, but leaves me with 80k and am not sure if that will be enough to get pendles in when he drops.

I'd hold Taranto, hopefully he's rested up and will start to score some decent points. He's only gone up a bit over 40k.
As for your 2 options, option 2 seems more likely to be affordable than option 1, in order to get Hanners and Pendles. Hanners BE is 109 and he will most likely get that. I'd get him this week and take the extra points.

Didn't realise Taranto was still playing. If I was to still go with two trades who should it be of these players? Pickett, Parfitt, Swallow, WHE, Barrett, SPP. Eddy.

Option 1 by far because Hanners Breakeven is still quite high at 109 so even if he scores a 130 his score will only increase very slightly no more then $10k maximum.

You only have one chance to bring in players that are on the bubble.

WHE for Hardwick or not
