Howdy folks, I’m Barron Von Crow and welcome to our Round 6 rookie scout report.

We’re only 5 weeks into the season, but things have been looking a bit grim at times, a bit lacking, especially compared to previous years. There may be some recruits coming in to help us out however, with the likes of Aidyn Johnson, Zac Fisher, Blake Hardwick, Ben McNiece and Aaron Black making their way into their respective teams 22 and all scoring at a reasonable rate.

The issue with that is with some of our other rookie selections scoring so poorly, we’re not getting a mass amount of cash generation to upgrade our picks, so lets hope this next batch of rookies can start to put us back on track going forward!

Now, let’s go look and see how everyone performed during Round 5.

Port Adelaide VS Carlton

Sam Powell-Pepper

FWD | SC Price: $233,800

Round 5 Stats: 17 disposals, 2 marks, 5 tackles, 55 SCPoints, 60 CKPoints

Dan Houston

FWD | SC Price: $266,300

Round 5 Stats: 17 disposals, 5 marks, 4 tackles, 73 SCPoints, 75 CKPoints

Aidyn Johnson

FWD | SC Price: $123,900

Round 5 Stats:  14 disposals, 5 marks, 2 goals, 70 SCPoints, 67 CKPoints

Tom Williamson

DEF | SC Price: $177,400

Round 5 Stats: 18 disposals, 5 marks, 3 inside 50’s, 81 SCPoints, 67 CKPoints

Caleb Marchbank

DEF | SC Price: $314,600

Round 5 Stats: 13 disposals, 7 marks, 4 tackles, 76 SCPoints, 73 CKPoints

Harrison Macreadie

DEF | SC Price: $173,600

Round 5 Stats: 8 disposals, 2 marks, 27 SCPoints, 30 CKPoints

Zac Fisher

MID | SC Price: $117,300

Round 5 Stats: 17 disposals, 1 tackle, 51 SCPoints, 44 CKPoints

Sam Petrevski-Seton

MID | SC Price: $298,400

Round 5 Stats: 16 disposals, 4 marks, 5 tackles, 49 SCPoints, 73 CKPoints

Jarrod Pickett

MID/FWD | SC Price: $164,300

Round 5 Stats: 7 disposals, 3 marks, 28 SCPoints, 25 CKPoints

Cameron Polson

FWD | SC Price: $117,300

Round 5 Stats: 11 disposals, 2 tackles, 34 SCPoints, 35 CKPoints


Sam Petrevski-Seton had 5 turnovers among his 16 disposals, which likely accounts for his poor Supercoach score compared to other formats, while Cameron Polson was generally indifferent fantasy wise in his AFL debut.

For Sam Powell-Pepper, it may be getting near the end for him, with his BE’s of 41 starting to approach his season average of 63 and talk that he may be rested soon. Aidyn Johnson had a solid AFL debut booting 2 goals, and with Travis Boak out he may keep his spot for another week at least, although that may also depend on the status of Hamish Hartlett going forward.

Western Bulldogs VS Brisbane

Cedric Cox

DEF | SC Price: $117,300

Round 5 Stats: 9 disposals, 2 marks, 2 tackles, 23 SCPoints, 37 CKPoints

Jarrod Berry

DEF/MID | SC Price: $136,900

Round 5 Stats: 6 disposals, 2 marks, 2 tackles, 14 SCPoints, 22 CKPoints

Hugh McCluggage

MID/FWD | SC Price: $215,100

Round 5 Stats: 15 disposals, 2 marks, 1 goal, 51 SCPoints, 59 CKPoints


All 3 Brisbane rookies haven’t been offering a great deal fantasy wise, so for now us Jake Barrett owners may have to hope he earns a recall soon, because Cox, Berry and McCluggage aren’t helping very much.

Gold Coast VS Adelaide

Jack Bowes

MID/FWD | SC Price: $222,900

Round 5 Stats: 15 disposals, 2 marks, 49 SCPoints, 46 CKPoints

Jarrod Witts

RUC | SC Price: $383,300

Round 5 Stats: 13 disposals, 2 marks, 25 hitouts, 91 SCPoints, 66 CKPoints

Curtly Hampton

DEF | SC Price: $285,700

Round 5 Stats: 21 disposals, 6 marks, 10 tackles, 2 goals, 103 SCPoints, 119 CKPoints

Andy Otten

DEF | SC Price: $344,400

Round 5 Stats: 21 disposals, 9 marks, 5 inside 50’s, 2 goals, 101 SCPoints, 99 CKPoints

Troy Menzel

FWD | SC Price: $211,900

Round 5 Stats: 4 disposals, 2 tackles, 2 goals, 39 SCPoints, 31 CKPoints

Riley Knight

FWD | SC Price: $288,300

Round 5 Stats: 19 disposals, 2 marks, 2 goals, 70 SCPoints, 70 CKPoints


Andy Otten and Curtly Hampton had great games, with both booting 2 goals apiece (Hampton the first 2 of the game), while also contributing elsewhere around the ground. At this rate, they’ll both keep for a few more weeks if they can maintain a this scoring rate. The issue for Otten may be that with the injury to Daniel Talia and the possible return of Josh Jenkins that he returns to playing down back, a position where he failed to score as highly than when he’s been sitting forward.

Riley Knight generally performed well across half forward, but suffered a hamstring injury late in the 4th quarter, which might save the largely invisible Troy Menzel, who only managed 4 touches (and 2 goals) from 73% ToG (same as Knight).

Jarrod Witts again put up a useful score, he lost the hitout count to Jacobs, but managed to make better use of the ones he did get, and while his average isn’t likely to make him a season long keeper, he’s still ticking over the scoreboard and making valuable cash while doing so, so he gets a big tick for that.

Fremantle VS North Melbourne

Griffin Logue

MID | SC Price: $185,600

Round 5 Stats: 9 disposals, 4 marks, 1 goal, 44 SCPoints, 42 CKPoints

Cam McCarthy

FWD | SC Price: $271,000

Round 5 Stats: 16 disposals, 5 marks, 1 goal, 72 SCPoints, 70 CKPoints

Ed Vickers-Willis

DEF | SC Price: $123,900

Round 5 Stats: 15 disposals, 5 marks, 51 SCPoints, 55 CKPoints

Kayne Turner

FWD | SC Price: $236,100

Round 5 Stats: 9 disposals, 4 marks, 1 goal, 41 SCPoints, 46 CKPoints

Jy Simpkin

FWD | SC Price: $213,500

Round 5 Stats: 12 disposals, 3 marks, 3 tackles, 1 goal, 73 SCPoints, 62 CKPoints


Griffin Logue couldn’t take advantage of his chances in front of goal, booting 1.3 for the game, but he at least got a little bit more involved up forward than he did down back. He still hasn’t shown he’s worth the cash as a downgrade option yet though.

Ed Vickers-Willis made his AFL debut and found a bit of the ball with 15 disposals, including 6 intercept possessions. Not a score that blows us away, but we can watch him for another week and if he sticks past that he should be an OK downgrade option.

Jy Simpkin continues to improve, his job security should continue to hold steady if he can keep up similar performances.

Sydney VS GWS

Harrison Marsh

DEF | SC Price: $286,400

Round 5 Stats: 17 disposals, 5 marks, 2 tackles, 60 SCPoints, 65 CKPoints

Lewis Melican

DEF | SC Price: $123,900

Round 5 Stats: 13 disposals, 7 marks, 3 inside 50’s, 68 SCPoints, 60 CKPoints

Jordan Foote

MID | SC Price: $207,400

Round 5 Stats: 7 disposals, 5 tackles, 33 SCPoints, 35 CKPoints

Will Hayward

FWD | SC Price: $ $189,200

Round 5 Stats: 5 disposals, 1 mark, 3 tackles, 21 SCPoints, 24 CKPoints

Matthew Kennedy

FWD | SC Price: $257,700

Round 5 Stats: 17 disposals, 5 marks, 8 tackles, 77 SCPoints, 89 CKPoints


The Swans had a host of players return, which resulted in several of their rookie options being dropped, while Will Hayward and Jordan Foote stuck, they didn’t perform all that well, which may leave room for someone like Nic Newman to make a return.

Lewis Melican made his AFL debut after spending a couple of years on the Swans rookie list, he put up a decent score, but it’s hard to see him having great job security at this stage.

St Kilda VS Geelong

Ben Long

DEF/FWD | SC Price: $117,300

Round 5 Stats: 6 disposals, 2 marks, 1 tackle, 22 SCPoints, 22 CKPoints

Tom Stewart

DEF | SC Price: $190,700

Round 5 Stats: 18 disposals, 5 marks, 2 tackles, 70 SCPoints, 63 CKPoints

Brandon Parfitt

MID/FWD | SC Price: $242,900

Round 5 Stats: 17 disposals, 1 mark, 4 tackles, 51 SCPoints, 59 CKPoints

Aaron Black

FWD | SC Price: $137,100

Round 5 Stats: 21 disposals, 7 marks, 5 tackles, 2 goals, 101 SCPoints, 100 CKPoints

Aaron Black played his first game of the year and pulled out a terrific score. We did see similar from him during the JLT series though, with Black scoring 89 SCPoints in the first JLT game, but he followed it up with a score of 29 in the Cats 2nd JLT game. The point is, it might be a bit much to expect this sort of score from him every week, but it’s still a good start and hopefully he can keep up some useable scores.

Tom Stewart scored decently, although most people probably benched him this week and Ben Long played his 2nd game and is now on the bubble this week, but he hasn’t shown anything that makes him look like he’s worth trading in.

Hawthorn VS West Coast

Ryan Burton

DEF/FWD | SC Price: $332,700

Round 5 Stats: 24 disposals, 6 marks, 3 tackles, 89 SCPoints, 93 CKPoints

Blake Hardwick

FWD | SC Price: $134,900

Round 5 Stats: 19 disposals, 4 marks, 65 SCPoints, 60 CKPoints

Nathan Vardy

RUC | SC Price: $287,900

Round 5 Stats: 8 disposals, 2 marks, 27 hitouts, 44 SCPoints, 63 CKPoints


Ryan Burton continues to be one of the best starting options down back that not many people took to begin with (he was owned by just 0.8% of teams to start the year), while Blake Hardwick is on the bubble this week with a 2-game average of 64 SCPoints and a BE of -49. Maybe an option to consider if Brett Eddy/Mitch Hannan are not selected again, or if you own Tim Smith.

Richmond VS Melbourne

Dan Butler

FWD | SC Price: $269,600

Round 5 Stats: 17 disposals, 2 marks, 2 goals, 83 SCPoints, 65 CKPoints

Todd Elton

FWD | SC Price: $219,800

Round 5 Stats: 9 disposals, 3 marks, 5 hitouts, 27 SCPoints, 43 CKPoints

Jake Spencer

RUC | SC Price: $236,400

Round 5 Stats: 4 disposals, 13 hitouts, 41 SCPoints, 28 CKPoints

Tim Smith

FWD | SC Price: $102,400

Round 5 Stats: 4 disposals, 3 tackles, 22 SCPoints, 24 CKPoints

Jay Kennedy-Harris

FWD | SC Price: $151,000

Round 5 Stats: 11 disposals, 5 marks, 7 tackles, 48 SCPoints, 70 CKPoints


Not a good game for the Dees, with Jake Spencer being ruled out for 7-8 weeks with a shoulder injury and Tim Smith taken to hospital with broken ribs.

Dan Butler continued his usual solid play and can safely be sat in the F5-F6 position without many worries on his current form.

Jay Kennedy-Harris should keep his spot in the Demons side with Smith being injured, but hasn’t been a great scorer in the past (average of 44 from 14 games in 2014 and 40 from 8 games in 2015).

Essendon VS Collingwood

Ben McNiece

DEF | SC Price: $102,400

Round 5 Stats: 11 disposals, 2 marks, 3 tackles, 61 SCPoints, 45 CKPoints

Andrew McGrath

DEF/MID | SC Price: $313,200

Round 5 Stats: 19 disposals, 1 mark, 3 tackles, 82 SCPoints, 60 CKPoints

Aaron Francis

DEF/FWD | SC Price: $259,700

Round 5 Stats: 9 disposals, 3 marks, 1 goal, 57 SCPoints, 37 CKPoints

Will Hoskin-Elliot

FWD | SC Price: $326,200

Round 5 Stats: 12 disposals, 2 marks, 4 tackles, 51 SCPoints, 52 CKPoints

Tim Broomhead

FWD | SC Price: $271,400

Round 5 Stats: 14 disposals, 2 marks, 6 tackles, 86 SCPoints, 65 CKPoints


Ben McNiece had a solid debut game, though he probably scored a bit above average from what you’d expect from an 11-disposal game, while Aaron Francis would need to show more since he’s at the high end of the rookie price range ($259K).

Will Hoskin-Elliot has slowed down a tad, with a 3-game average of 64 and a BE of 69. Best case scenario is he beats his BE this week, but he probably won’t smash it out of the park or anything.


Normally we wouldn’t want to be cashing in our rookie picks this early in the season, but the absolute suckage we’ve gotten from some may have brought this process forward just a tad. While for the most of them there’s still a few more weeks to go, there will be a few guys where we may soon have to think about moving them on.

Round 2 of VFL action was completed last week, with Geelong going down 44-96 to Port Melbourne (where your Gary Ayers continue to coach), Box Hill pretty much won the game in the first quarter, scoring 11.3 to 0.0 in the first term to defeat Coburg 128-62, Richmond defeated Sandringham 86-61 (those Richmond slackers couldn’t be bothered to put up 200 points this week), the Northern Blues beat Williamstown 101-80, Footscray defeated Werribee 117-66, Casey won their game against North Ballarat 127-81 and finally Essendon put a beating on Collingwood, winning 118-38

Love it Barron!
Also if Taranto is not named this week i will be downgrading to Fisher and will use my second trade to upgrade WHE.
Option 1: WHE to Macrae (leaving me 87k)
Option 2: WHE to Martin (via Nank) leaving 50k.
My other ruck is sandi who i will be upgrading during the byes.
What does everyone suggest is the best option?

    Soothsayer · 27/04/2017 at 10:31

    I think Macrae is steady-Eddie at the moment while Martin may or may not be the best scoring ruck for the year. i haven't had the balls to pull the trigger on a ruck and swing the Nank forward yet. I suppose I'm not convinced on the structural integrity of the leading rucks anatomical integrity. They may all fall apart.

    Kev · 27/04/2017 at 11:22

    Dusty facing a huge b.e this week. If you can hold off you can pick him up significantly cheaper in a few weeks

      John James · 27/04/2017 at 22:14

      I think he means the other Martin that plays in the ruck.

Soothsayer · 27/04/2017 at 10:22

Thank You Barron, this is a tremendous service to those of us not in the loop with the Magoos. May I inquire at your suggested move this week as to why you would not go for a fallen premium (Hanners, Treloar) rather than Greene or a peaking out Sloane or Selwood?

    BarronVonCrow · 27/04/2017 at 15:05

    Sloane or Selwood are still in play, Greene was more because my forward line is a bit "meh", so I was looking to boost that up first.

    I haven't locked that trade in yet, but I'm weary of Sloane atm since I have Laird, Otten, Hampton and M Crouch already.

Soothsayer · 27/04/2017 at 10:25

P.S. My five year old son has suggested that as he was born in Adelaide, that he may just leave the Hawks behind and switch over to the crows. Do you see a run of back to back premierships for this crows squad? Or should I buy him a T.Mitchell duffel coat and make sure I don't watch any crows games at home?

    INPieman · 27/04/2017 at 11:04

    My eldest has fallen into line & he's a Jnr Pieman. But his 5 year old little brother sounds a bit like your young fella as well. Looking to jump on a team that's winning. Safe to say he won't be a Jnr Pieman

      neil Demons Delight · 27/04/2017 at 11:30

      great article on bucks and ed on afl website takes the blame off Bucks and to ED and recruiting e.g.. mayne 4 years 2 mill even Wells was dicey all there good reading

    BarronVonCrow · 27/04/2017 at 15:04

    I've been burned by the Crows a few times now (05-06 especially), so I haven't really gotten my hopes up just yet about this team being any different.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 27/04/2017 at 10:26


Happy Gilmore theme.

Wow what a difference a week makes in football. Despite the carnage on the rookie bench’s the majority of rookies that were forced to field delivered the goods. Thanks guys.
Some huge scores from our premo’s. The Top gun and his wingman is there a better one/two combination fourth quarter specialist?
But for every big scoring premo there were those that didn’t fire. That’s just how it goes. Roll with it. The apple and berry turnovers come good and improved their DE and hence their SC scores. Nice one Adam and Titch.

When the dust had settled the winners were:

LEK Def INPieman
SC Addict Def Billy
Dontblushbaby Def Gator
Neilsdemonsdelights Def BVC
Rick Grimes Def Patch
Swans2012 Def Mo
Jock Def Tophawk

Some big scores this week with 3 teams punching out scores over 2,300 with Neil going huge with a total of 2,395. Mo suffered his first defeat of the year going to Swans by 30 points. Jock held on for a hard fought win against Tophawk which like the majority of matches came down the result of the Anzac day match. A big shout out to Daniel Wells who played pretty well but did play a lot in the midfield which pushed Pendles forward which affected his scoring. Without you Daniel the result could have been very different for me. Those without Pendles will be watching over the next couple of weeks with interest.

Infact the fire sale of premos over the next few weeks is going to be epidemic.
SC Addict sits on top of the ladder one of only two undefeated teams so far.

Moved up a bit in the League ranking which now sits at 66.
Biggest drop in Price
Mr Stuck together with gaffa tape – Kurt Tippett.

And the award goes to: (lowest scoring premo – starting price > $480k) and not injured during game
Tom Hawkins – 41 SC points

Jock has also set up a JR community Group where any team can join and compete against one another under groups:
Overall JR Group Leaders:
Well done Brendan still leading the way – Team Sheeds leading all and sundry community group members with an overall rank of 9!
Magnificent mate! – Go you good thing.
Hopefully one of this great community can be standing on the winner’s dais at the end of the year!

Good luck to all.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 27/04/2017 at 10:34

Just blown away as Normal no stone left unturned.

Be interesting to see if any of these boys gets a gig.

Myers, Scharenberg, Newwan, mutimer and maybe perryman are my tips.
Be nice anyway,
But reality is myers will probably get another go in the magoos, GWS are full so hard to see perryman forcing his way in, and newman well might be a jack sway and he misses out again. 🙁

    neil Demons Delight · 27/04/2017 at 12:35

    Happy report will be interesting some great games

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 27/04/2017 at 12:42

      Tried to post it yesterday but was quarantined subject to approval. Not sure why as haven't had a problem before? Tried posting here again today same thing happened.
      Will see if it is approved and released.

Soothsayer · 27/04/2017 at 10:43

There's a real lack of DPP rookies doing well enough. Are any of the hopefuls DPP? its making clever switching very difficult. All the good scoring rookies are not DPP.

    INPieman · 27/04/2017 at 10:57

    Balic is about the only hope ATM. But let's not forget Ross is involved in that. Which means in no uncertain terms your plumbs will stuffed with

AuroraBorealis?! · 27/04/2017 at 10:49

Who has better JS, Fisher or Hardwick?

    Kev · 27/04/2017 at 11:24

    Fisher in a rebuilding Blues lineup

    LoganJosh7 · 27/04/2017 at 12:59

    i still dont know who to pick either

Gues · 27/04/2017 at 10:50

I'm holding ppepper Houston parfitt butler all for another round.

    BarronVonCrow · 27/04/2017 at 15:10

    Me too. My theory/guess on SPP is he'll play round 6-7, but they'll give him the China game off so he gets a 2 week break (bye next round), and hope that is enough rest for him to continue to play through the 2nd half of the year.

      Soothsayer · 27/04/2017 at 18:16

      That could be his breakout game Barron, forever to be known as Sechaun-Pepper!

        alex · 27/04/2017 at 21:46

        underrated coment!

INPieman · 27/04/2017 at 10:55

If there's a more comprehensive fantasy footy article I'm yet to hear of it. There wouldn't be anything that even comes close. Awesome as always BVC. Really hoping Barrett Newman & Preuss get a recall this week. Even Brett Eddy would be nice. Perhaps even just 2 of them. Come one SC gods be fair

    neil Demons Delight · 27/04/2017 at 11:23

    great isn't he and helps us so much we cant get to those venues same here too pies newman pruess and eddy would be good

      INPieman · 27/04/2017 at 11:49

      Yep Neil. Sick of watching blokes that could make heaps of coin doing nothing. The fact they were selected round 1 gives me hope

    LoganJosh7 · 27/04/2017 at 12:58

    at this stage i would be ecstatic with even 2 of them playing!

    Russty_ · 27/04/2017 at 14:02

    Read on AFL Daily that Newman is "in the mix" for this week, and that O'Meara's fit and ready to go.
    Wondering if I should hold JOM and give him one more chance?

      INPieman · 27/04/2017 at 14:09

      If you have held JOM this far you might as well give him a crack if he's playing. Just have an exit strategy if he shits the bed again. Keiren Jack out opens up a spot for someone. Hopefully it's Newman

        Russty_ · 27/04/2017 at 14:16

        Cheers mate, yeah Hawks do have a good draw for the next 4 weeks or so, I'm just being super scungy with trades this year lol, and there's not many must pick Rookies coming through to get excited about, I've been scoring ok having only used up 2 trades so I might just hold again and see what happens.

        Yeah hope Newman gets back in and stays in, but who do you put on field out of Newman and Hampton?

          INPieman · 27/04/2017 at 14:27

          Tough call Newman vs Hampton for onfield. Looks like Hampton is really finding his feet. But if Newman plays I'd go him vs the Blues personally

      Soothsayer · 27/04/2017 at 18:20

      I just can't do it Russty_ I am sending him and roughy to Treloar and Black. I haven't the faith to go down to Balic. Of course if roughy and JOM are both named I will have think hard about saving the trades.

        Russty_ · 27/04/2017 at 21:50

        I had a long hard think about it and totally changed my mind haha, I figure even if JOM scores 120 this week, he'll still bloody let me down at some point with his bloody injury history…and Roughy is taking a little bit too long to get going for mine.

        So I went Rough to Fisher swinging Dahl into the fwd line, and then JOM to Oliver..I still reckon Red is a great price even though I missed the 382k boat, I reckon he's a stud, and will end up a top 8 midfielder this season..(I hope!)

        So, doing that I went from 45k to 136k in the kitty, now 26 trades left, so I'm pretty happy with that situation.
        Midfield's fairly set now so just have to focus on fwd and backline upgrades.

Rick rolled · 27/04/2017 at 11:03

Hey guys, got a dilemma this week. Wanting to trade JOM and WHE for Fisher and Nank, but i also have Hannan, Eddy, pickett, barratt and Newman on the bench not earning coin. I'm pretty confident Barratt and newman will come back and make some good coin, so they are obviously hold, but what to do with the other 3? Do i make the trades i want and sort these rookies out in the coming week or sort them out first. I didn't have a very good week last week so want to sure up the team a bit. Is this a good idea or not? I'm an inexperienced supercoacher so any advice is greatly appreciated.

TL;DR: Have some non playing rookies that need correcting, sort them out first or make the trade JOM and WHE to Nank and fisher?

    neil Demons Delight · 27/04/2017 at 11:20

    Do the trade son Eddy will be ok and Pickett and Hannan you can exit both during byes no hurry with either Cheers good luck

      Rick rolled · 27/04/2017 at 11:23

      Cheers Neil appreciate it!

    Kev · 27/04/2017 at 11:31

    Hannan just needed the week off I feel. Didn't play for Casey either. He might be back this week. Eddy is close, maybe not this week as I don't see an opening for him but there's really not much to be gained from trading him. Pickett just needs that one big score. Parfitt's price got a good kick when he busted out that 99. Blues don't seem to want to drop him so if he's on your bench hold him.

    Stick with your original Bank/Fisher trades.

      INPieman · 27/04/2017 at 11:51

      A big score from Pickett would be 51 Kev. Right now we'd take it

        Kev · 27/04/2017 at 13:00

        Haha. You're not wrong, Pie! If he keeps gaining 5k a week he might break the 200k mark at the end of the year

          INPieman · 27/04/2017 at 13:44

          LOL Very true!

Bitter · 27/04/2017 at 11:05

That would've been enough to win the Anzac Day Medal. Good job Eddy

neil Demons Delight · 27/04/2017 at 11:15

Great comprehensive report Baron well done Sir Blacks the interesting one for me was good in jlt and targeted by cats .Probably in front of Lincoln and Parsons and the other like many Newman did enough for a recall should never have been dropped..hope to have 10 trades left round 14 with 21 or 22 prems not sure of the last spot Some great bargains coming up and we will need them forget your 600 plus options now is the time for pendles Shaw Greene Simmo howe and maybe Adams if he drops a bit cheers keep up the great reports champ

    BarronVonCrow · 27/04/2017 at 15:11

    I think I'll still trade in Black, just not going to expect him to be consistently a good scorer.

Kev · 27/04/2017 at 11:33

Great stuff, BvC. West Coast look as if they've got a decent set of kids coming through. They could do with a shake up

    BarronVonCrow · 27/04/2017 at 15:07

    Agree Kev, a few of their blokes have been doing really well so far. Might as well give one a shot instead of going down the disappointing Redden/Jetta path again and again.

Dan Butler · 27/04/2017 at 12:01

Hey Baron, top stuff although I think you've got my stats mixed up somehow. I'm pretty sure I only managed a 64.

    LoganJosh7 · 27/04/2017 at 13:42


    INPieman · 27/04/2017 at 13:46

    Good point Dan. If you had of put up an 83 I probably wouldn't be thinking about blowing your head off

    BarronVonCrow · 27/04/2017 at 15:11


    Do better, Dan, and then I won't look so silly!

Rivo · 27/04/2017 at 12:02

Thanks Baron. This article is very comprehensive and as always a great help.

I'm at a difficult window after 5 rounds.

Ranked poorly at 23,000 and down to 25 trades with only $2k cash. Starting team selections have delivered a few lemons & correction trades for the last 2 weeks. Going for leagues over ranking and languishing at the bottom on one of my leagues.

I am considering another 2 trades and agai. Defence set up is ok with a good blend of rookies and premo. Rucks ok with Martin/Sandi and Nank at F3. Given their form and current BE, it's time Roughy & Swallow to go in order of preference…

1. Dusty & Fisher;
2. Treloar & Fisher;
3. Macrae & Fisher;
4. Hold.

As I have 2 x Sydney mids and Pendles, am I risking a bye nightmare under option 2?

    TBone · 27/04/2017 at 12:19

    Number 3 for sure mate. Macrae is looking a top 3 forward and is very consistant

    Finnius123 · 27/04/2017 at 12:21

    2,3,1. Sydney has a different bye to Collingwood so you should be sweet in that regard.

      Rivo · 27/04/2017 at 20:56

      Thanks Finnius. Getting the team to mid premo is priority. So going with Option 2. Treloar looks at bargain at $558k.

        John James · 27/04/2017 at 22:54

        Was going to recommend the second option,but you have already decided to go that way,so well done.

Adam · 27/04/2017 at 12:21

Who should I trade out. SPP or Partiff??? Ps, awesome article. PPS. Was Barrett a travelling emergency?

    BarronVonCrow · 27/04/2017 at 15:12

    Appears he was.

TBone · 27/04/2017 at 12:23

Hey guys, a lot of choices for this week. My options are either

1. D Swallow to Fisher… wait to make two trades next week

2. D Swallow to Fisher, Petracca to Buddy

3. D Swallow to Fisher, Florent to Hardwick… next week SPP to Dusty or Pendles

Cheers guys

    LoganJosh7 · 27/04/2017 at 13:47


    buddy is going to keep going down

    Russty_ · 27/04/2017 at 22:14

    Giday TBone, maybe option 3.5?…Swallow to Fisher and Florent to Balic?

      John James · 27/04/2017 at 22:49

      I'm with you on this one Russty

hedski · 27/04/2017 at 12:49

Cheers BVC your a legend, anything on Barrett from the weekend mate?

    INPieman · 27/04/2017 at 13:47

    He was a travelling emergency Hedski. So he didn't play NEAFL. Let's hope he get's a recall

      hedski · 27/04/2017 at 14:01

      To right, need him making some $, thanks Pie.

      BarronVonCrow · 27/04/2017 at 15:07

      Figured so, Pieman, but couldn't find any confirmation on that. Thanks.

Tiger · 27/04/2017 at 12:52

Noticed no mention of Jake Barret, does anyone know if he was rested or a traveling emergency? Cheers

    INPieman · 27/04/2017 at 13:52

    Travelling E

      Tiger · 27/04/2017 at 14:07


Sana · 27/04/2017 at 13:21

Hmmm…. What order to mince these rookies?

SPP, Parfitt, WHE all look ripe for the slaughter. Has everyone jumped off Taranto? Might have to cut my losses there as well…

    INPieman · 27/04/2017 at 13:52

    With Stevie J back & Coniglio & Whitfield about to return I cut my losses last week on TT. I'll probably hold SPP & Parfitt but I have WHE in my line of sight

      Sana · 27/04/2017 at 15:21

      Agreed, obviously WHE's value plays a part, plenty of fat on that cow

      neil Demons Delight · 27/04/2017 at 15:34

      culled t-t last week too spp and whe have little or no fat on them at best slow burners.This year this is a worry Time to cull both for coin but to who.I am thinking Fisher and go early on black then welcome pendles at 553

Stav · 27/04/2017 at 14:03

G'day community. Who's looking like the best downgrade target this week for WHE? Or do I upgrade to premium? Have 230k in the kitty


BarronVonCrow · 27/04/2017 at 15:10

Cheers, SS.

Tim · 27/04/2017 at 15:13

I am stumped who to trade this week – love some help

Option 1:
OUT: M Murphy & M Hibberd
IN: Hanneberry & Fisher
leaving $57,200 in the bank with a projected total of 2,224


Option 2:
OUT: M Murphy & Roughy
IN: Fisher & Balic (assuming named)
leaving $735,200 in the bank with a projected total of 2,195

    John James · 27/04/2017 at 17:37

    Option 2,you get rookies going up and a heap of cash to spend wisely later on,no rush for Hanners,cash generation is more important at the moment.

    John · 27/04/2017 at 19:17


    Murphy out you must be crazy

Mitch · 27/04/2017 at 15:23

Should I go WHE to Macrae this week OR hold and next week paint the fence with SPP and Parfitt with Pendles in sight?

Andy · 27/04/2017 at 16:13

Fisher or Balic??
Please help!!

    John · 27/04/2017 at 19:19

    Im going with Balic

    Russty_ · 27/04/2017 at 21:58

    I went Fisher, more job security I think.

BrownlowBoy · 27/04/2017 at 16:42

Myers looking likely to come in this week, this is one bloke who I'm happy to go early on.

Vicki · 27/04/2017 at 16:47

Hi Community
Help please.

Option 1: Taranto to Hanners
Option 2: Taranto to Cripps
Option 3: Taranto to R. Gray
Option 4: Taranto to Wines.

Thank you for your thoughts.

    Ja191 · 27/04/2017 at 19:46


TEM · 27/04/2017 at 19:53

have danger, rockliff, shuey, fyfe, JPK and beams. which premo mid should i bring in, have 596k.

    Russty_ · 27/04/2017 at 23:48

    Some could consider this risky but I'd go Oliver, he loves getting his hands on it, and is averaging a solid 115 for the year.
    I think the kid's the next big thing.

Pablo · 27/04/2017 at 20:01

Comprehensive as ever. Thanks for the intel, particularly the round the grounds. Helps to know what the next batch of rooks are up to.

The benchmark · 27/04/2017 at 20:05

What the hell do I do with fox barrett and eddy? I have a pretty high ranking but am losing my patience?

    Russty_ · 27/04/2017 at 21:56

    I think we're all in the same boat so far mate, so many non playing rook spuds..I'm not gonna stress about it, as long as I have a strong team onfield and one on each line protecting a doughnut.
    Maybe just trade one out when you have two non playing spuds on the one line?

      The benchmark · 27/04/2017 at 23:02

      Yep sounds good to me
      I'll just trade down for now to Baltic and fish

WHE Dilemma · 27/04/2017 at 21:39


My forward line is currently:

Dahlhaus, Greene, Nank, WHE, butler, Houston (parfitt, eddy). I currently have 242k in the bank.
Do I trade WHE up to macrae or downgrade for cash generation?

    Russty_ · 27/04/2017 at 22:06

    Get Macrae in, he's reliable and dpp is a bonus..WHE's done I reckon, doesn't have enough heart.

Adam · 27/04/2017 at 21:45

Balic or Fisher??

    John James · 27/04/2017 at 22:02

    I brought in both,need the cash generation.

      Russty_ · 27/04/2017 at 22:15

      You must be rolling in it now John! 🙂

        John James · 27/04/2017 at 22:43

        Sure thing Russty, getting ready for when I bring in a few premos,as they present themselves.

Neverweaken · 27/04/2017 at 21:50

Is fisher a must have? Can do
1 Swallow to Fisher.
2 WHE to Fisher
3 Swallow to Fisher WHE to McCrae
4 Tempted to wait one more week on WHE to McCrae with doggies playing GWS up there this week

    Russty_ · 27/04/2017 at 22:10

    I reckon option 3 this week, BANG and BANG again, Swallow's a fail for this year and WHE's heading that way too in my opinion.
    Fisher will have good JS cause Carlton are giving the kids a good chance this year..and good on em for that!

Bobby · 27/04/2017 at 22:30

Should i keep bretty eddy (TU) or trade him for Balic? (TD) cheers much appreciated

    Russty_ · 27/04/2017 at 23:44

    Dump Eddy, Balic will make you money and Eddy won't make you squat.

      Bobby · 28/04/2017 at 09:48

      Cheers Russty! legend mate

Henry · 28/04/2017 at 15:43
