Heroes-Villians-Damned

He has risen.

The resurrection is complete and the messiah has come back to life.

Gary Ablett’s majestic performance on Saturday night will go down as one of the greatest individual performances the AFL has ever seen.

Many had written him off as a spent SuperCoach force, but like a phoenix rising from the ashes he has levitated back to significance – gracefully registering a heavenly 210 SC points.

The statistics are mind-blowing: 45 touches – 26 kicks and 19 handballs. 27 contested possessions. 18 clearances. 9 tackles. 1 goal. All at 80% efficiency.

Such was this performance that he has been elevated past Hero status this week to a new title: God.

Gary’s exceptional outing masked what was a dismal round in general for many SuperCoaches. While the odd premo fired, many more failed miserably. Coaches were doing well to pass 2000. It was a bloody horror show.  

The Heroes

Scott Pendlebury (149 SC) could have easily featured as a Redeemer but his epic score means he is above that. He described last week’s performance as his worst game in 10 years and boy did he a make amends. Had 33 touches and nine tackles which propelled him to a colossal total. Fellow Pie Taylor Adams (120 SC) also helped the Woods to a clinical victory over a poor Geelong.  

Righto, I’m going to say it *clears throat*… Elliott Yeo (150 SC) should be considered as a premium forward option. In typical Yeo-Yeo style, he rebounded impressively after a down match last week. Had 32 touches, 14 marks, 6 tackles at 84% efficiency. His kick to handball ratio was outstanding.    West Coast team-mates Josh Kennedy (141 SC and 6 goals), Jeremy McGovern (121 SC) and Matt Priddis (120 SC) were also in splendid form as the Eagles routed the Dockers in the derby. Lachie Neale (122 SC) was the only player who could hold his head high for Fremantle.

Do we have a bolter here for a defensive premo keeper? Dylan Roberton (149 SC) has been in exhilarating touch so far this season, knocking out 4 tons in 6 matches for an overall average of 109. Should be strongly considered.  Speaking of standout defensive options, Blues duo Kade Simpson (148 SC) and Sam Docherty (149 SC) were exceptional in Carlton’s shock win over the Swans. GWS’ Zac Williams (120 SC) is another throwing his hand up to be considered in this area.

Rory Sloane (140 SC) continues to be the highest scoring player in SuperCoach and helped the Crows to a big win over Richmond. Fellow Rory, of the Laird variety, also had a prolific game (122 SC) while Adelaide team-mate Tom Lynch (121 SC) joined in on the party as well.

Big men Callum Sinclair (142 SC), Ben McEvoy (125 SC) and Ben Brown (122 SC) enjoyed decent games for their respective sides, but there’s no doubt there are better options out there.

Port duo Charlie Dixon (150 SC) and Chad Wingard (127 SC) were the two that most benefited from the Power’s demolition of Brisbane, with Wingard in particular providing some SC relevance as POD up forward.

The Villains

Highly-rated Geelong duo Patrick Dangerfield (65 SC) and Joel Selwood (73 SC) were bloody terrible in their side’s second-rate loss to Collingwood. With few decent loophole VC options, many coaches had the C on Danger, and to a lesser extent Selwood, and they failed miserably, letting thousands down in the process. With Dangerfield’s dip in form in 2017, it has become a scary proposition that we no longer have a gun perma-captain to fall back on this season. It will make things very interesting in the coming weeks.

Freo leaders Nat Fyfe (62 SC) and David Mundy (61 SC) failed to stand up as their side fell to a West Coast blitzkrieg. They will both be eager to rebound next week. Popular Collingwood picks Brodie Grundy (82 SC) and Adam Treloar (72 SC) also left their coaches with rather large underpant stains.

Brisbane were insipid against Port and SC relevant selections Tom Rockliff (52 SC), Dayne Beams (66 SC), Dayne Zorko (68 SC) and Stef Martin (68 SC) all had games they would rather forget. Todd Goldstein (77 SC) and Jarrod Witts (73 SC) rucked against each other on Saturday night and were both substandard. One difference, though. One costed nearly 600K at the start of the season, the other a bit over 200K.

The curious case of Tobias Greene (92 SC) continues. Going by recent evidence, it appears as though he’s a bit of a dick on the field. Or in Rugby League terms, a “grub”. A couple pretty ordinary acts will see him suspended for at least 1-2 weeks. Definitely worth holding if you’re an owner, though. Some were flirting with the idea of bringing team-mate Jeremy Cameron (56 SC) into their sides. He proved on the weekend this is a bad idea.

Toby Nankervis (68 SC) was one of the many Tigers that disappointed against a rampant Adelaide, but we will let him off due to his outstanding previous form so far this season. Jason Johannisen (65 SC) and Bernie Vince (63 SC) both had off games and fell further in our thinking as defensive keepers.

The Redeemers

Of course, Shaun Higgins (121 SC) comes back after missing a week and bangs out a decent score. He just loves toying with his coaches, does Higgo. Full credit to him for coming back with a bang. Finally, Jack Steele (116 SC) had a game to remember. Unlike previous matches, he did not sit back and rest on his laurels after couple of good passages of play. Was consistent the entire match and was one of the Saints’ best in their demolishment of the Hawks. Could this be the start of something big?

Giants Heath Shaw (111 SC) rewarded his loyal owners with a nice ton, while Dylan Shiel (104 SC) was better of a lacklustre season so far.

The Prodigies

Ironically the trio that many coaches would have chopped the past few weeks in Will Hoskin-Elliott (125 SC), Sam Powell-Power (97 SC) and Tim Taranto (86 SC) registered excellent returns in their respective matches.

Bomber Andrew McGrath (89 SC) looks like he is worth keeping for another few weeks, while Docker Cam McCarthy (78 SC) continued his resurgence as a SC forward. Harley Balic (78 SC) and Blake Hardwick (77 SC) provided their owners with superb scores on the bubble.

Most of the Carlton rookies enjoyed excellent days out in their upset win over Sydney, with Sam Petrevski-Seton (78 SC), Tom Williamson (71 SC) and Caleb Marchbank (69 SC) posting respectable scores. Those who traded in Zac Fisher (38 SC) would have been disappointed as he gathered just 11 possessions. The Sydney youngsters didn’t fare as well as their Carlton rivals. Nic Newman (59 SC) was quiet on his return, while Lewis Melican (54 SC) and Will Hayward (47 SC) were also below par.

Dan Houston (51 SC) couldn’t cash in on Port’s instrumental victory over Brisbane, while Lions Jarrod Berry (62 SC) and Huge McCluggage (19 SC) did their best to stem the flow. Young Kangaroos Kayne Turner (61 SC), Ed Vickers-Willis (58 SC) and Jy Simpkin (28 SC) did not stand out against Gold Coast and neither did Sun Jack Bowes (55 SC).

Melbourne’s Mitch Hannan (53 SC) will be lucky to keep his place in the side when Jesse Hogan comes back while Essendon’s Ben McNiece (48 SC) was OK in his second game. West Coast’s Kurt Mutimer (21 SC) looked a little overwhelmed by the Western Derby in his first match. He’s got limited job security so I would steer clear anyway.  

Tom Stewart (68 SC) was the best of the Geelong rookies in their surprise loss to Collingwood, while Aaron Black (48 SC) and Brandon Parfitt (41 SC) would not have been satisfied with their performances.

Now Josh Jenkins is back in the Adelaide side, I have serious concerns about the scoring capacity of Andy Otten (61 SC). He has been an absolute champion in our backlines but there are doubts as to whether he can keep it up no JJ is back. Curtly Hampton (41 SC) couldn’t back up last week’s solid game while Tiger Daniel Butler (54 SC) will have a decent break even this week after a low score.

The Damned

Those who have been loyally holding onto Hawks pair Jaeger O’Meara (39 SC) and Jarryd Roughead (64 SC) must offload them immediately. Their extended break away from the game has taken its toll and they have not at all been themselves this season. Their team-mates Jack Gunston (43 SC) and Josh Gibson (49 SC) were also horrid. They all need to go.

Sydney’s Callum Mills (63 SC) is certainly not a defensive keeper, while those who traded in Brandon Matera (59 SC) two weeks ago were let down by a second straight mediocre score.

How did you go this week, Community?

On Saturday, in these hallowed pages, I 'fessed up to enraging the Gods and suffering an appalling Captain's run as a result, culminating with Fyfe's substandard 62. This confession seems to have appeased Them as I was blessed with big scores from Pendles, WHE, Adams and Laird while also benefiting from the low scores from Dangerwood.

1957 is not great but it is a lot better than I was looking at on Saturday night.

LoganJosh7 · 01/05/2017 at 10:08

Ablett captain 10 minutes before his game. best.decision.ever

    Dildor · 01/05/2017 at 10:19

    You stiff trouserd genius mother f*cker.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 01/05/2017 at 11:29

    Where did that put u Joshy?
    Great call.

      LoganJosh7 · 01/05/2017 at 13:44

      top 1400 for the week which isnt too bad with no bont, pendles or sloaney 🙂

    INPieman · 01/05/2017 at 13:57

    Decision of the season thus far. Brilliant

    Tyruddanaut · 01/05/2017 at 17:42

    Fyfe over Doch VC last second
    Danger over Laird C last second
    Some people just have luck

      LoganJosh7 · 02/05/2017 at 09:40

      *great captain picking skills

jwill2bong · 01/05/2017 at 10:11

Bont was also a hero, saved me putting the C on Danger!

TRIGGER HAPPY · 01/05/2017 at 10:15

TRIG’s HAPPY PLACE LEAGUE RESULTS.

Happy Gilmore theme.

The SC gods have spoken. If you were sitting in your recliner, whiskey in hand, smoking a cigar feeling pretty good about your team and for those of us with the little master would have had a grin from ear to ear Saturday night. Most would be sitting on 1,200 to 1,400 with maybe nine to come and either Captain Danger or Selwood. How good is this? How big is the score going to be Sunday night? The SC gods response. I will strike down thee with furious anger as I hate smugness. It was the Sunday straight out of hell. No one was spared, rookies, premos, middies didn’t matter. Whack.

By the end of the day it was the SC gods with the smile. Lesson learnt. It aint over until the SC gods decide it’s over. How does your score look now? If you made it 2,000 it was a good effort with a 2,200 breaking into the top 1,000 scores for the week. Such was the shite that was dished up yesterday. Pendles was exceptional but we all knew he would bounce back and is still a very tempting trade in target at under $580k. Sloane took the title of #1 midfielder.

Some extremely close games in the happy place where if you scored 2,000 you won except if you were Rick or I. When the dust had settled the winners were:

WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!

LEK2,036 Def TRIGGER HAPPY 2,029
INPieman 2,093 Def Billy 1,921
SC Addict 1,985 Def Neilsdemonsdelights 1,883
Dontblushbaby 1,973 Def Shake n Bake 1,921
Patch 1,899 Def BVC 1,791
Tophawk 2,012 Def Rick Grimes 2,012
Swans2012 2,020 Def Kev 1,876
Mo 1,992 Def Jock 1,940

• As I said if you scored over 2,000 you generally had a win expect for poor old Rick who lost by 2 points to Tophawk and myself who lost by 7 stinking points to LEK. LEK did have Ablett, JJK and Simmo as PODs! If only … nah we don’t deal in “if only’s” congrats LEK.
•Addict remains the only undefeated team at the top of the ladder with the rest of the 8 one game behind separated only by percentage.
•To put this into perspective “the shiteness” of yesterday. Last week Neil punched out a mammoth 2,395. This week 1,883. That is a 500 point swing in a week. This is how easily it can turn in this game!

League ranking now sits at 88.

THE PRICE IS WRONG, B1TCH.
Biggest drop in Price
Josh Jenkins – $57.1k. Danger just missed the embarrassment of being named here.

YOU SUCK YA JACKASS.
And the award goes to: (lowest scoring premo – starting price > $480k) and not injured during game
Ben Cunnington – 34 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 16!
Must have avoided all the turds that were dropped on the freshly cut Sunday lawn.

Hopefully one of this great community can be standing on the winner’s dais at the end of the year!
Good luck to all.
GONE TO MY HAPPY PLACE BE BACK IN FEW.

    neil Demons Delight · 01/05/2017 at 12:18

    Thanks for the mention trig enjoyed that what a week to forget 7 and 2 points wow Still mate got to stick to your guns and original structures. Panic trading whether in or out would be the wrong way to go.. one trade for me Parfitt who was going this week to a former burnman of mine YEO .Still have faith but forwards have too many rooks Parfitt butler BALIC eddy too many good luck cheers mate

    Tyruddanaut · 01/05/2017 at 17:40

    Come on Barron, Sub 1800! I don't think I'll trust your articles ever again

Brett H · 01/05/2017 at 10:18

Great write up again Carlos!!

Didn't see the incident, but will Nank get suspended.

I would prefer to double downgrade this week whilst there are a few options (EVW, Melican, Black, Parsons, McNiece), but may have to get either S Martin or Grundy this week to cover Nank (even though they have high break evens).

Also, can anyone see any decent downgrade options for the week after (round 8)?

    Kev · 01/05/2017 at 11:54

    Reckless and high. Could get a week. His good record and the fact Mackay only had a blood nose might save him… I hope

    SEL · 01/05/2017 at 15:13

    Might b on bubble in 9 not 8 but I reckon Myers would be bloody close especially with the couple of quick turnarounds for bombers

      RobDog · 01/05/2017 at 15:21

      Nank 1 week, Greene 2.

INPieman · 01/05/2017 at 10:19

It's going to be an interesting Team meeting at the firing range this week! Great stuff Carlos. Nailed it. Love the God status inclusion

    Dildor · 01/05/2017 at 10:34

    Hope you visited the local ammunation recently.

      INPieman · 01/05/2017 at 10:42

      I'd suggest there's going to be a lot of rage induced shots fired all over the joint this week

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 01/05/2017 at 10:38

    Reckon you should trade in the rifle for a bazooka.

    line em all up arm in arm with the spread should be able to blow a few away at once.

    Stirlsy · 01/05/2017 at 12:45

    Looking fwd to that one Pieman.

      INPieman · 01/05/2017 at 13:01

      At this stage I'll be calling the lads in tomorrow morning

Mike · 01/05/2017 at 10:33

So thinking of trading Parfitt to Pendles and Marchbank up to T.Adams… thoughts??

    LoganJosh7 · 01/05/2017 at 10:38

    nice!

    Seeker · 01/05/2017 at 11:21

    24 Carat Gold options, do it!

    jez_m · 01/05/2017 at 11:24

    Very good trades.

    Nick · 01/05/2017 at 12:48

    Ottens would be better to get out won't score high much anymore. His Be is highest in defence and plus marchbank averages 60-70 so will still go up

    Tyruddanaut · 01/05/2017 at 17:43

    Peddles is a bit pricy don't ya rhink

      Top Gun · 01/05/2017 at 19:27

      Pendles breakeven is 124. If he another big match the lower price now you will never see again this season

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:15

    Like it.

Samuel · 01/05/2017 at 10:35

Wines very fortunate to not get mentioned! Brought the prick in this week haha

All hail King Gary!

David · 01/05/2017 at 10:36

O'Meara > Yeo
Otten > Hibberd
~50k left

Good trades? Pendlebury was the other I considered but doesn't work as well with byes.

    Kev · 01/05/2017 at 11:55

    Looking forward to the Hibberd discussion this week

Jamie · 01/05/2017 at 10:45

How big a problem is buddy and JPK? Holding but very concerned.

    jez_m · 01/05/2017 at 11:25

    I'd hold. JPK is a gun and Buddy drops cash from his starting price every year before bouncing back.

Choo chok · 01/05/2017 at 10:45

What's pendles BE?

    dnoyes · 01/05/2017 at 10:47

    124, use footywire in the future

    The Numbers Man · 01/05/2017 at 12:05

    131, try using tooserious.net too. I find their BE's more accurate

    jez_m · 01/05/2017 at 12:23

    123 on the actual Supercoach site.

mabiorsmen · 01/05/2017 at 10:45

Who should bring in for 495k? need a forward or a defender

    mabiorsmen · 01/05/2017 at 10:49

    At the moment trades are
    Parfitt-Parsons
    Otten-Simpson

    jez_m · 01/05/2017 at 11:28

    Plenty of defenders to choose from. Simpson, Lloyd, McGovern, Shaw and Rance all under $495K at the moment.

      Kev · 01/05/2017 at 11:57

      Yeah, agree with jez. Add Hibberd to that list if you want to save a bit of coin.

Dice · 01/05/2017 at 10:46

Bring in Shaw, Simpson or Hibberd?

    Flubber · 01/05/2017 at 11:01

    All 3

    Dice · 01/05/2017 at 11:07

    What order you reckon Flub?

      mabiorsmen · 01/05/2017 at 11:13

      I'd have shaw first myself

        Nick · 01/05/2017 at 15:21

        Simpson first his Be will be low and he is a bargain

    jez_m · 01/05/2017 at 11:28

    I'd take them in the order you listed them, Dice

    Danners · 01/05/2017 at 14:05

    Simpson, could wait a week with Heater since he has a higher breakeven

DacZawson · 01/05/2017 at 10:55

Looking like Parsons likely to come in for Parfitt this week, meaning he'll be on the bubble.
The thing is that I need defence rookies and not forward ones.

Should I this week bring in:
Parsons for Butler + Hampton for a Premo Defender (preferably sub 500k)
or
EVW for Otten (meaning Hampton or Stewart on field) + Butler for Pendles

If I choose the first option I will get Pendles next week.

    @t_woof · 01/05/2017 at 14:08

    I'd go option one Zac.

    Not sold on the bubble boys this round. Parsons probably the best of a bad bunch. Problem seems to be most of us are still starting the likes of Otten and Hampton down back. I wouldn't feel confident trading both out for a premo and a Melican, McNiece or EVW. Wouldn't be confident starting any of them. Same with Black up fwd. I really think if you haven't got Hardwick or Balic, play the extra coin and get them. I'm thinking that way with Balic (got Hardwick last week). More confident starting those two than the new bubble boys. Started Hardwick over Butler on the weekend.

    Top Gun · 01/05/2017 at 20:40

    Not sure you want to burn Butler with only 47 BE but my choice would be Option 2 as Ottens breakeven is much less than Hampton. Pendles might get 10k less but he might score big this week too.

Rivo · 01/05/2017 at 10:59

Another awful score of 1939 with terrible output from Danger (Captain stain-pants), Fyfe, Treloar, Nank, Otten & Houston.

Would love to get Gaz in but would have to offload Buddy, and not sure that's worth the punt.

23 trades & $44k. The obvious trade looks to be..

1. Hampton & Parfitt to Hibberd (Melb) & Black.

Or do I bite the bullet and go…

2. Buddy & Parfitt to Ablett & Black?

Buddy has been ordinary and leaking cash. Black worries me with JS. But Parfitt injured, so he may survive a few weeks to make cash.

With Option 1, I get Hibberd before cash rise and lock him into D4. Black goes to the bench at F7.

With Option 2, mids go close to full premo, within M.Crouch at M8. But I lose DPP from mids and put SPP on the bench. Forwards then look shaky with Nank at F2 and his risk of suspension. Rookies sitting at F3 to 6 (Houston, Butler, Ballic & Black). F7/8 become Pickett & Eddy.

Option 1, 2 or Hold?

    neil Demons Delight · 01/05/2017 at 12:34

    awful trades rivo Hampton still got more in him Hibberd not convinced IT would be good to get god in but Buddy will come good my F6 to come my opinion hold but must offload Parfitt maybe to Black good luck mate this is where it starts with good trading cheers

    @t_woof · 01/05/2017 at 14:15

    I definitely wouldn't be doing Option 2 Rivo. Black at F6 yuck, and not too keen on starting Butler again. Richmond have the Dogs this week. Hold Franklin.

    Agree with Neil, could hold Hampton one more week. I don't believe Black is a "must have" either. Otten could be the better trade out option if wanting to offload one of those Crows. But it really depends what your bench looks like. I'd have no confidence starting any of these DEF Bubble Boys.

    Maybe hold for now. See what MRP throws up, see what the teams are on Thursday and then re-assess. I find myself going batty looking at trades this early in the week. All the hard work can be out the window come 6:25PM Thursday.

      Rivo · 01/05/2017 at 14:30

      Agree t_woof. I'm going crazy already. Bench set up at the moment is below. 2 x injuries and a a couple or non playing…

      D: Hampton, Stewart
      M: Pickett, Barrett, Fisher
      R: Strnadica
      F: Parfitt, Eddy.

        @t_woof · 01/05/2017 at 14:44

        Tough one. Need to offload Parfitt, with Parsons probably the likely best option. But then breaks the DPP.

        Could always pay a little extra for Balic if you don't already have him. Retains that DPP rookie link.

          Rivo · 01/05/2017 at 20:04

          Thoughts on this one? With Nank missing a week another dilemma and the need for 2 trades more pressing…

          Option 4. Otten & Parfitt to Macrae & McNiece.

          Gets another premo to Fwd line & can swing Hampton or Stewart to D6.

            @t_woof · 02/05/2017 at 15:57

            Nank, damn spanner in the works! Have him also, and looking to hold and cover with bench.

            I don't know much about McNiece, but if you're happy with him then that option could be the go. Macrae sf definitely a top 6 forward, brought him in last week myself. Now 28K above starting price, isn't that much of a premium cost and comes with DPP. Hampton at D6 is fine.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 01/05/2017 at 11:01

What a wrap Carl.
beautifully done.

Case of the haves v the have nots this week

if u were on the right side of the ledger would have rocketed up through the rankings.

LoganJosh7 · 01/05/2017 at 11:09

two trades up for hibberd and heeney?

or two down for say VW and Black?

    LoganJosh7 · 01/05/2017 at 11:09

    keep in mind no good rookies for next week…

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 01/05/2017 at 11:21

    tossing that one up myself

    hibberd presents good value at $400k looks like a fairly solid D6

    I was at the game on Sat and Heeney was one of the only few swans that stood up. It would have been out of him and Lloyd for BOG for the swans.,

    Tempted.

    Is he a top fwd?

    Dahl, McCrae, JJK, Roo (if stays on the park), another KPP Lynch/Buddy etc or Nank and then?
    Maybe Heeney slides into the last place.

    Fwds harder to pick that a broken nose.

      neil Demons Delight · 01/05/2017 at 12:37

      yeo f6 trig difficult spot

      LoganJosh7 · 01/05/2017 at 13:54

      yeah trig youre making some noice points

      its so annoying all the good rookies are either in fwd or defence because my mid is where all the holes are.

      will keep following you guys and see where this great journey takes me!

Steeeve · 01/05/2017 at 11:14

This was the kind of round that could shoot a person way up the rankings.

I was not that person.

    Dean · 01/05/2017 at 23:01

    yep went from 5900 odd to 709 great jump in rank.

      jpb · 01/05/2017 at 23:28

      I lost 9218 positions !

KSinny · 01/05/2017 at 11:15

Need help guys

I have 67k in the bank which is just not enough to to a straight swap of marchbank to hibberd, I have Jobe Watson and wondering if I should downgrade him and then get hibberd for marchbank or downgrade marchbank and upgrade Watson to a premo, but this means I miss out on hibberd before his price rises. Help please

    JohndJames · 01/05/2017 at 12:07

    Really can't say without knowing which players you would be downgrading or upgrading too,but I think either way works,trading out Watson would be my target,even though he was a mid price player and so came with some risk,it hasn't worked,like a Oliver has,but in the end whether you up or downgrade him is in the end up to YOU because no matter what advice you get,it is your finger on the trade button.

    Not a top 6 defender, everyone will jump on and live with his 80-85avg

      chief · 01/05/2017 at 11:37

      seems to be playing a heath shaw like role at the demons tho

        Real talk · 01/05/2017 at 11:45

        Trust your gut, I'll be targeting proven premos personally. But it's tempting I'll give you that

    Holty · 01/05/2017 at 12:33

    Im tempted chief. He averaged 90+ in 2013 and 2014. At his price if he can average the same he will be relevant.
    Just have a look at the defenders you dont have. I have 3 spots left in defense and dont have Doch, Adams, Simmo or Laird. I think he will average similar to Simpson but have a feeling he will need to average 100+ to compete with the other 3. Thats why i probably wont select him.

    Danners · 01/05/2017 at 14:04

    Wait a week and reassess. If he pumps out another 100, he only goes up $40k

    Leeds17 · 02/05/2017 at 05:42

    I think it's wort the punt if you've nailed your Def premos already, you want him slipping into D6 no higher longterm @ 400k it's not a horrible move.

bob the builder · 01/05/2017 at 11:19

Upgrade Otten or downgrade Hampton??
Already going JOM>Pendles

    Dice · 01/05/2017 at 11:30

    I think Ottens maxed out Robert the builder

      Nick · 01/05/2017 at 15:18

      Perfect for you ottens to hibberd costs you 30k. Might be doing those two trades as well.

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:18

    Downgrade Hampton to VW or McNice.

dave · 01/05/2017 at 11:19

had enough of beams now he is driving me insane and i just cant see him averaging around 110 like i thought he would..
trade options are
keep beams and trade otten to shaw

or otten – hibberd, beams- martin

    Real talk · 01/05/2017 at 11:23

    Option 1. There's higher priorities than beams in your team. Use your head not your heart.

      Dave · 01/05/2017 at 12:41

      I don't really see that many rookies worth bringing in and with Newman, marchbank, often, Hampton, Stewart, Taranto, SPP, WHE still there aswell as Barrett I feel that these guys can generate me cash whilst I try upgrade elsewhere.. first sideways trade it would be

    neil Demons Delight · 01/05/2017 at 12:49

    real talk spot on mate

    RickeyRat · 01/05/2017 at 13:02

    I'm in the same boat with Beams would only trade up to Sloane,pendles or Bont he will have the quiet games and score below 80 ,bottom side plus Rockliff and Zorko will average more.

Imgonnalose · 01/05/2017 at 11:21

Anyone know where the button is to delete your Supercoach team?

    Holty · 01/05/2017 at 12:38

Westy · 01/05/2017 at 11:25

Who is decent on the bubble this week?
I've got JOM and need to bring in a fwd or mid.
Also, would you trade Vince out to a vickers Willis? Is he a fail? I need cash to get in a decent midfielder… Brought in Wines this week.. over it

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 01/05/2017 at 11:30

    BVC will reveal all tomorrow

      neil Demons Delight · 01/05/2017 at 12:49

      cant wait

    @t_woof · 01/05/2017 at 14:24

    I don't think any of them are decent this week Westy, Parsons the best of a bad bunch. Prefer paying extra for Balic or Hardwick.

    I'd be holding Vince. Could not start EVW with any confidence whatsoever.

    Top Gun · 01/05/2017 at 21:15

    On the bubble Parsons, Black, Melican and McNeice. Very similar type players but would lean to Parsons or Black with Parfitt out for 3-4 wks

Jaxon · 01/05/2017 at 11:38

Dustin martin down to 538k… thoughts?

    Booper dooper · 01/05/2017 at 11:46

    Goes quiet too often for mine

    INPieman · 01/05/2017 at 11:48

    3 sub 100 scores in a row. I've already got enough blokes giving me those scores

    Steeeve · 01/05/2017 at 11:51

    Great option. I'm looking at Pendles first and then my mids will be complete. If I already had Pendles I'd be looking at Dusty and Rockliff for sure.

      Top Gun · 01/05/2017 at 21:16

      Pendles for me this week too via DPP and Ottens.

    RickeyRat · 01/05/2017 at 13:06

    Still capable of going huge just incosistent better options i like Robbie Gray at similar price his touches all quality and efficient but Dusty is still.a bargain

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS · 01/05/2017 at 11:49

Two trades this week (pending selection committee on Thursday night):
Ed Vickers Willis in for Otten
Parsons in for Butler
Next week a double upgrade all going well 🙂

    Dean · 01/05/2017 at 23:35

    Silly trades mate because Otten still has a B/E of 55 with his average being 85
    Same applies for Butler as he will still make you cash, however I can justify getting Black or Parsons for Butler. If u can afford Black over Parsons go Black.

Ben · 01/05/2017 at 11:54

Hampton to Hibberd? Or bring in one of Lloyd, Simpson, Docherty?
Have Laird and Adams

    Kev · 01/05/2017 at 12:13

    Simmo and Lloyd are exceptional value right now. I like Lloyd

    Leeds17 · 02/05/2017 at 05:48

    Docherty is a must have but he's close to top price right now, I think Simpson's last season is a bit of an outlier expect a 95 ave not 105.
    Jake Lloyd's consistency is impressive but hasn't shown any ceiling & you;'d think a 60 odd score isn't too far away another 95 averager.

Lenny · 01/05/2017 at 11:58

Parsons, EVW, Black or Mcneice?

    Kev · 01/05/2017 at 12:11

    Def: McNiece, EDV. I think they're really close but McN just shades EVW because he's 20k cheaper
    Fwd: Parsons, Black. Parsons already been flagged by Scott as coming straight back. A good sign

      Mich · 01/05/2017 at 13:59

      Im assuming parsons has added job security with Parfitt going down . It would have to help Blacks as well

        Leeds17 · 02/05/2017 at 05:49

        Black might get dropped for Stanley who's been BOG in the VFL last 2 weeks.

    The Nank · 01/05/2017 at 12:14

    having the same problem. Dont see McNeice holding his spot for long

    Dildor · 01/05/2017 at 12:16

    EVW didnt start in the side, do you think he can keep the spot?

    @t_woof · 01/05/2017 at 14:28

    Parsons if forced to choose. Don't really like the other three, wouldn't have any confidence starting them.

    Don't mind the idea of paying extra for Hardwick or Balic.

    Nick · 01/05/2017 at 15:15

    None of them, last week was the week for rookies, this week is for upgrading.

jez_m · 01/05/2017 at 12:27

Operation 'Get Pendles' is in action this week.

Out goes Marchbank and Parfitt for Melican/EVW/McNeice and Pendlebury. Then the VC tag is going straight to Pendles.

    Nick · 01/05/2017 at 15:14

    If you have Otten get rid of him instead, won't score high again in the position he is playing in. Marchbank is consistent and has a few weeks of making more money. Otten Be is higher than marchbank as well

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:20

    Pendles has a 124 BE, operation get pendles is actually in effect next round.

      DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 18:29

      Kinda understand waiting a week but for what realy?
      For him to drop another 6k while scoring 110?
      I mean the upside is that he is up against Carlton and me thinks he will feast again then ur paying 590k instead of 577k

        whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:44

        I'd get him in if there weren't bubble boys and cheap defenders like Simpson set to go up 20K.

          Swans2012 · 01/05/2017 at 18:50

          doesn't look like much downgrade wise next week,I reckon it might be a double down this week for me, then maybe a pendles and Shaw next week.

            Dnoyes · 01/05/2017 at 21:22

            I'm doing the same. Double bubble this week into Dusty and Pendles next week.

      Top Gun · 01/05/2017 at 21:27

      And if he scores 150?

      jez_m · 02/05/2017 at 10:01

      If you have a look at his recent history vs Carlton, he's every chance to get that this week.

Kev · 01/05/2017 at 12:30

Looking at offloading Houston this week. 513k to play with. Liking Wingard's new midfield role. Article during the week read that he's effectively swapped roles with Gray. I was a big fan of Heeney in the preseason before he went down. 21 CBA's is a good sign of his "promised" role change of more midfield time.

Or i can go straight to the top and grab Yeo or JJK. Eagles have no more games at the 'G this year. They can both flat track bully all they want

    Damo · 01/05/2017 at 12:46

    I'd hold off WIngard until after his bye even if he costs a little more. Will give you a few more weeks of data. Heeney would be a very nice POD whilst others are occupied this week with jumping on Pendles/Gaz/Shaw/Simpson etc and the Swans have a nice run of games coming up.

      Kev · 01/05/2017 at 13:14

      Good call that, Damo. Be silly to trade into his bye. Thanks mate

    Leeds17 · 02/05/2017 at 05:52

    I wasn't convinced with Heeney in preseason but after Sydney's start they desperately need him in the midfield so I actually brought him in first week back, he looks a lock for top10 forwards if not top 6.
    I'm monitoring Wingard till after his early bye.

Real talk · 01/05/2017 at 12:37

Stand by your premos

Damo · 01/05/2017 at 12:41

I know it's frustrating Jess but I'd hold Buddy. Plenty of coaches brought him in last week and there will even be some who trade him in this week which is always an indication you should hold. Could have a good week at home against the Lions.

Hawks · 01/05/2017 at 12:42

Hello Community,

Tough round just passed, and decisions to be made.

My team-

Def – Simpson, Shaw, Touhy, Otten, Hampton, Newman, Marchbank, Hibberd (Nth)
Mid – Pendles, Danger, Oliver, T.Mitchell, Fyfe, Kennedy, Beams, Hannebery, SPP, Barrett, Fisher
Rucks – Martin, Sandilands, Strnadica
Fwd – Dahlhaus, Macrae, Butler, Parfitt, Hardwick, Balic, Hannan, Eddy

Cash $266,700

My dilemma is that my forward-line needs the most upgrading, but most of the guys I had considered as upgrade targets have not impressed (Buddy, Greene – week off, JJK – hot or cold).

Whereas my upgrade plan for the defense is so much clearer, with guys like Laird, T.Adams & Rance all seemingly good upgrade targets.

This means I am considering upgrading the likes of Marchbank & Hampton, instead of Parfitt & Butler.

I would appreciate your thoughts, on my plan to strengthen my defense in coming weeks, whilst fielding 4 rookies in the forward-line (hopefully generating cash), or is there a more even approach I should be taking.

If I saw the forward-line top 8 or 10 players more clearly I would probably take an even approach of upgrading both lines at a similar pace.

    FCAbel · 01/05/2017 at 13:05

    Parfitt to buddy.

    jez_m · 01/05/2017 at 13:08

    I would paint the fence by trading out Parfitt for Parsons this week (if he's named) and then upgrade Marchbank to a defensive premium. This means you can then perform another upgrade next week without needing to chop another rookie.

    RickeyRat · 01/05/2017 at 13:11

    Laird is a must have your correct forward line needs lot's of work get Parsons if he's named and offload Parfitt then keep generating cash for warchest to tade in anothet premium forward

    Jai Paynter · 01/05/2017 at 13:20

    My thoughts are make the money where its at and take the points where they are at.
    So it doesn't matter if you have 4 rookies in the fwd and none in the def, or 2 in each. Either way you've still got 4 rookies.
    The fwd line might become clearer in time

    JohndJames · 01/05/2017 at 14:10

    If it was my team I would be upgrading Hibberd since you aren't making any cash on him,to either Laird or Adams and downgrading Parfitt,since he is stuffed and was ready for trading anyway,Parsons seems the go if he comes in this week.

The Nank · 01/05/2017 at 12:53

omeara to penddle & otten to hibberd

    Hawks · 01/05/2017 at 13:18

    Nice moves

    Danners · 01/05/2017 at 14:03

    Hold Otten, wield the axe on Pendles. Hibberd is not a must have yet

mikeyyyyy · 01/05/2017 at 12:54

hampton to EVW

D swallow to tom mitchell ??

thoughts

    Real talk · 01/05/2017 at 13:00

    32 BE for hampton. Too soon to jump off imo considering he has cracked the ton.

      mikeyyyyy · 01/05/2017 at 13:14

      Im aware of that but EVW is on the bubble…

        Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 13:39

        I like it

      whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:22

      Problem is that 100 looks to be an anomaly among crap scores. Otten can take contested marks and kick a goal, which is equal to about a half of hampton's game sometimes.

    Hawks · 01/05/2017 at 13:04

    Like both trades. Would be nice if EVW kicked the ball more (2 kicks & 12 handballs last weekend)

    JohndJames · 01/05/2017 at 13:57

    I like the Swallow to Mitchell move mike,Tom has been fairly consistent so far this season av over 110,was looking at trading him in myself but other situations have stuffed up that move for me.

Mike · 01/05/2017 at 12:58

Any good DEF rookie downgrade options heading our way soon? Would it be better to upgrade Otten or Marchbank to T.Adams

    Jai Paynter · 01/05/2017 at 13:16

    I'm pulling the pin on marchbank

    Hawks · 01/05/2017 at 13:17

    I'd move Marchbank before Otten.

    Vicker-Wills for Nth is probably the best cheap defensive rookie.

    Dean Billman · 01/05/2017 at 19:17

    Melican

hedski · 01/05/2017 at 13:11

Parfitt and Otten to Parsons and Shaw.
Leaves me with five upgrades, one def, two mids and two fwds.

    INPieman · 01/05/2017 at 14:04

    I have a feeling that will be a popular set of trades Hedski. Looks good to me

Jai Paynter · 01/05/2017 at 13:14

Bring in Docherty, Simpson, Roberton, Adams, or other?

    jez_m · 01/05/2017 at 13:27

    Of those four I would go Docherty, Adams, Roberton and then Simpson

    Hawks · 01/05/2017 at 13:27

    Have you considered Michael Hibberd from Melb, he has averaged in the 90's in past years, and started well after 18 months off, his on the bubble, and wont be cheaper. Bit of a risk, but could provide plenty of reward.

    Alternately I would select Taylor Adams, but his price will dip a little after next week, so perhaps wait a week. Simpson is also huge value.

Col · 01/05/2017 at 13:15

Do we need more time to look at Heeney BE 73

    Hawks · 01/05/2017 at 13:29

    We know what Heeney brings, Sydney will lift, and start playing better football, Heeney will be a part of the improvement.

    No need to wait.

    Col · 01/05/2017 at 13:38

    And the swans draw is pretty good up to the byes
    Surely they'll get some wins

      Wedge · 01/05/2017 at 17:42

      I've been saying that since rnd 2. Still waiting

      redherringfc · 01/05/2017 at 18:48

      good for their opposition.

      EVERYONE thought they would beat Carlton.

      The lions are looking like good things to me, even away from home. I'm not touching any sydney premiums until they show something as a team.

        Wedge · 01/05/2017 at 19:57

        Swans have no structure. It's almost every single player doesn't know where his role is or what position to play in

        Top Gun · 01/05/2017 at 21:36

        Surely its time for JPK to show something this week?

Rusty_Nuts · 01/05/2017 at 13:21

Any love for Dylan Robertson? I can get him with a Marchbank trade but would have to trade Otten to get Docherty.

    Hawks · 01/05/2017 at 13:40

    No.

    He had a good year in 2015, with 5 scores of 110+, but also 4 scores of below 70.

    Capable of high scores, but lacks consistency in output that you can get at his price from Laird, Adams, Rance, Simpson, etc

    INPieman · 01/05/2017 at 14:00

    What a POD. The question is can he keep it up

    Danners · 01/05/2017 at 14:02

    Missed the bus, save $50k and go Simpson/Lloyd or more by going Rance

    jason · 01/05/2017 at 14:03

    heaps of love, but missed the boat.

Adam · 01/05/2017 at 13:25

Just did:
WHE> Parsons and Parfitt > Balic

Got 390k in bank to upgrade swallow to anyone i want next week.

Thoughts?

    Declan · 01/05/2017 at 13:28

    Why are you getting rid of WHE just pumped out 120+ and has breakeven of 30.

    Ken · 01/05/2017 at 13:29

    Too early on Hoskin Elliott still money to be made and balic ship sailed last week

    Try trade parfitt down to parsons if he's back

    INPieman · 01/05/2017 at 14:03

    Whatever you had in your coffee this morning please send some my way Adam

    @t_woof · 01/05/2017 at 14:35

    Don't mind the Balic option for the extra price as this weeks bubble boys look ordinary. But hell, don't be trading out WHE bro!

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:09

    Pendles next week for Swallow. As stated trade someone else for Parsons.

neil Demons Delight · 01/05/2017 at 13:28

who is the first prem to get in given their price and their future price rise..Pendles Shaw Simmo God yeo were all good on the weekend though we cant have all of them this week by not selecting one could put that player out of reach.All are at bargain prices the one that stands out to me is Pendlebery.. He like the others will rise but he will give you fantastic points ..the others wont they will be more up and down than pendles have a look at his sc history .I think he is a must have this week and hope the others flounder

    Hawks · 01/05/2017 at 13:36

    Simpson and then Ablett.

    Dice · 01/05/2017 at 15:08

    Pendlebury B/E 124

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 15:14

    Agree.

Moosehead · 01/05/2017 at 13:35

My rule of thumb over the years has been, no Hawk SC players and it has worked for me, but I got sucked and stupidly selected JOM and Roughy. I have given them too many chances despite getting just over 2000 SC points.
I am trading in Parsons, apparently Scott is playing him this week and Wingard, because of his increased time in the middle. Tempted to get Heeney after his latter 2016 season but Swans dreadful this year or Macrae, who is $100K dearer than Wingard. Ports round 11 bye is a nuisance but at least it is out of the way for the rest of the byes.
This leaves my $186K to upgrade a defender next week.
Still pondering about Macrae which will leave me only about $86K. Perhaps I maybe able to get Macrae in a week or two provided he doesn't go up to much?
An Essendon VFL player said that Myers will be selected this week and if he goes ok then I will grab him after he plays a game or two.

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 15:14

    I would go Macrae. He does have the RD 11 bye. When talking about Port I think you mean the rd 9 bye? I would be getting Wingard after his bye as otherwise you have to cover him with an onfield rookie.

      Moosehead · 01/05/2017 at 21:23

      Thanks. Had a rethink. I may go Pendlebury and Parsons for the two Hawk boys.

        Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 22:27

        Much prefer that trade

    Derek · 01/05/2017 at 18:34

    i have had the same rule, but this year went crazy POD with Cyril. not good and never again

garfield_da_cat · 01/05/2017 at 13:43

Thoughts on bring in ablett and trading out beams?

    jez_m · 01/05/2017 at 13:45

    Personally I'd work on getting my team to full premium before trading Beams out.

      Cr0magn0n · 02/05/2017 at 10:59

      Agreed

    Danners · 01/05/2017 at 14:01

    Don't go bus chasing

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:08

    See how gazza looks after his bye.

Winter · 01/05/2017 at 13:44

Who's everyone getting
Vickers-Willis or Melican?
Black or Parsons?

Who's everyone trading
Otten or Hampton?
Butler or Houston?

    Rialto8 · 01/05/2017 at 14:09

    For Goodness sake pal, do your own research, look at the BE's and make a decision.
    Pathetic. After going with the pack mentality it's gloating, if it's sour it's silence.
    Make a contribution for once.

      Declan · 01/05/2017 at 14:39

      Winter, I wouldn't trade out Otten yet score could have been 80 ash as missed goal and dropped a few contested marks. Regards to the others up to you, pretty similar breakevens between all and priced similarly and probably have all about the same JS.

      Dildor · 01/05/2017 at 16:29

      Like the solid contribution you just made?

      Winter · 01/05/2017 at 16:45

      Rialto the whole point of a forum is to ask for help…..? Lol
      Where's your contribution haven't seen your name ever before

      No need for that!

    @t_woof · 01/05/2017 at 14:40

    Won't be going anywhere near the DEF bubble boys.

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:07

    Hampton and Houston.

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:07

I'll be going into hibernation this year.
See you all again in 2018

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:06

    It's rough out there.

    Cr0magn0n · 02/05/2017 at 11:03

    I feel ya bro but hang in there. This season is as difficult a season as I can recall, but it's a marathon, not a sprint. Frankly, some of the weekly round winning SC teams have been what I would consider SC abortions, that no-one in their right mind would have picked! The worm will turn, and adherence to trade discipline will right the ship. Best of luck with it mate!

Hawks · 01/05/2017 at 13:56

Thanks Guys for the feedback on my team issues above.

I have decided on the following moves, pending team selection.

My current team-

Def – Simpson, Shaw, Touhy, Otten, Hampton, Newman, Marchbank, Hibberd (Nth)
Mid – Pendles, Danger, Oliver, T.Mitchell, Fyfe, Kennedy, Beams, Hannebery, SPP, Barrett, Fisher
Rucks – Martin, Sandilands, Strnadica
Fwd – Dahlhaus, Macrae, Butler, Parfitt, Hardwick, Balic, Hannan, Eddy

Cash $266,700

This week-
Marchbank to Laird & Parfitt to Parsons – leaving $180k
Next week-
Otten to Taylor Adams

Thoughts please.

    TBone · 01/05/2017 at 14:37

    Good trades, but I would personally try and strengthen that forward line. Buddy is on the cheap cheap and many other good premo options afforable too. But its your team, so whatever you feel helps you best

      Hawks · 01/05/2017 at 15:55

      Thanks, I am watching Buddy & Greene, but Buddy and the Swans are so cold, and Greene will be suspended.

      I just cant get a grasp on the likely top 6-8 forwards this season, whereas the defense looks easier to pick. Perhaps the forwards will present in a few weeks when Im looking to be full premo.

Danners · 01/05/2017 at 14:01

Nice Carlos! Even though I have $320k in the bank, I am thinking of doing a double downgrade. Only one rookie (Mutimer) played their first game last week meaning that there will be limited rookie options coming into Round 7 with most only having played one game

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 01/05/2017 at 15:44

    Think Muttimer also got injured on the weekend Danners so leaves zero in.fwd line.

    finnigin · 01/05/2017 at 16:42

    your on to it

Jordan · 01/05/2017 at 14:05

If I'm in the top 4% do I have a chance of winning?

    psychic robot · 01/05/2017 at 14:14

    computer says no

    Hawks · 01/05/2017 at 14:22

    Yes, but dont play the safe moves, need some good POD's, including captains choices.

      Jordan · 01/05/2017 at 14:53

      Would u say trading in hibberd/Simpson is a pod move?

        Hawks · 01/05/2017 at 16:04

        Hibberd would be a POD I think. And a good one, he has averaged mid-90's before, and is very cheap.

        Simpson will be heavily traded into this week I think, he is a bargin.

        Jamal · 01/05/2017 at 20:56

        From looking at what everyone else is writing i would say it's not a huge pod. They will be popular choices this week.
        That shouldn't stop you though. No point going POD for the sake of it. If you think they are good value then grab them

    Jamal · 01/05/2017 at 15:21

    I reckon you might.
    I moved up from top 6% to top 2% last round with a score of 2163. So who knows? It's still early days

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:05

    Things can change very quickly, especially in a season where even premos are up and down in a large range of scoring.

Westy · 01/05/2017 at 14:07

Best performing mid this week in my team. SPP (and he was on the bench)!

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 01/05/2017 at 14:16

    Wow Westy.
    Just wow. U were certainly bent over if that was the case.

Big G · 01/05/2017 at 14:14

Will Aaron Black get regular games from here on?

    Hawks · 01/05/2017 at 14:23

    No, his never been able to cement a spot at AFL level.

    He is a depth player, who will get 10-12 games this season.

    Cr0magn0n · 02/05/2017 at 11:13

    Geelong did just get their arses handed to them this week, can't see the Cats taking the same team (minus Parfitt of course) into next round. Black is at best a fringe player and could be one of the first to go, especially considering Rhys Stanleys good VFL form.

      @t_woof · 02/05/2017 at 16:13

      Agree 100% Cr0magn0n.

Ryan · 01/05/2017 at 14:27

Do we wait for Sloane or we gotta get him ASAP… the only way I can get him sideway trade beams or treloar

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 15:02

    Definitely wait – plenty of players who will give you the same output for the rest of the year at a much lower price (e.g. Pendles, Bont..)

    Jamal · 01/05/2017 at 15:25

    I got sloane 2 weeks ago and people thought he was too expensive then.
    I jumped off danger this week for captain and put the big C on Sloane. Trading in and then making captain this week are best 2 moves ive made all year.
    Dont sell the farm for him but i think he will finish top scorer for the year so get him if you can afford him.
    Gotta go close to the brownlow this year too

      RickeyRat · 01/05/2017 at 15:51

      Nice call Sloane is most reliable option going around so to off load Beams makes you 40 points per round and double when capt why not spend the coin,we all need go to vc or c especially with Dangerfield dropping off from early rounds.

      FEARTHEBEARD · 02/05/2017 at 10:58

      Same as me bud! Literally won for me in H2H this week!

@t_woof · 01/05/2017 at 14:28

HOLD Franklin.

John · 01/05/2017 at 14:29

Is ollie wines a good option to get in?

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 14:32

    After the bye yes. I am looking at getting him in rd 9

      Nick · 01/05/2017 at 17:29

      Cripps is better and his ripe for the picking. This week or next. He average the same as Bont last year down like 80k.

        whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:03

        Agreed. I'm not getting burnt by wines again that's for sure.

    Cr0magn0n · 02/05/2017 at 11:14

    Yes, but post bye. Remember that in Round 9 (Port & GC bye) you still need 22 players on field.

Touk tuk · 01/05/2017 at 14:32

Is it time to cull Hampton and otten?

    Touk tuk · 01/05/2017 at 14:34

    I m thinking going hampton to hibberb and ottens to essendon rookie

    Thoughts?

      DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 15:00

      I have chopped Hampton and Houston for Parsons and Pendles

      My backline is solid and need more pts in the midfield plus Pendles not getting cheaper this year

        whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:04

        Otten is actually a hell of a footballer so another chance he deserves.

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 15:01

    Yeah

      Touk tuk · 01/05/2017 at 15:39

      I can only get pendles after his bye….

    redherringfc · 01/05/2017 at 18:09

    I'm keeping otten for another week, hoping he will beat his BE of 55. He is definitely on the chopping block next week. Hampton still has a bit of growth, in my opinion.

    Danners · 01/05/2017 at 18:23

    No, wait a week or two to cull both

MinimumChips · 01/05/2017 at 14:33

Alright

Do I downgrade Bowes to A black cat
And upgrade Oreo fanta and bite the bullet to KO by Stevens?

chief · 01/05/2017 at 14:46

can get in any player this week who should it be

    Jamal · 01/05/2017 at 15:26

    Sloane

    Cr0magn0n · 02/05/2017 at 11:16

    Pendles, and if you needed any further persuasion Collingwood play Carlton this week, Pendles could go right off his tits!

DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 14:56

All POD players in Rance, JJ, and Sheil are bloody coasting me.
Worried about Treloar and Beams too

But have to continue to look at full premo then see if luck is on my side to then get rid of weakest M8
Chances of getting a proper full premo side this year is going to be the hardest to do in a long long time.
Players like Steele, Treloar and Witts may have to stay in ur team all year…
Picking up players like Franklin after next weeks game is smart
Picking up a player like Sloane is not, especially when I see comments about going Beams to Sloane.
Getting to a very delicate part of the season and burning trades for point chasing is madness

    DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 14:57

    Costing* not coasting, although I wish they were coasting

      Big G · 01/05/2017 at 15:27

      Rance got me a win on the weekend.

    JohndJames · 01/05/2017 at 17:50

    I don't mind Steele as my F3,had him from the start,fwds are hard to pick this year,since we don't have all those mid/fwd to put in there like last year.

Mystic Mac · 01/05/2017 at 15:10

Titch with my solo ton in the guts );

    Declan · 01/05/2017 at 15:33

    Same here Mystic Mac, killed me

      Marcus · 01/05/2017 at 18:08

      Powell pepper was my highest score in the midifeld…

Nick · 01/05/2017 at 15:12

Who should I get in for Omeara.
Option 1- Bont costs the most, might not be this low.
Option 2 – Gazza is he the real deal now
Option 3 – Pendlebury won't be this cheap again
Option 4 – Cripps also won't be this cheap again, 513k is a bargain, save money as well.
All good options the biggest decision so far this year.

    Ja191 · 01/05/2017 at 16:32

    Pendles all the way, cheapest you'll see him plus after that 150, will rise very quickly and be back to his usual greatness.

      Wedge · 01/05/2017 at 17:54

      Pendles I agree. I remember last year after rnd 6 I was going to trade him in. I didn't end up pulling the trigger and he went 143,157,140 in the next three. I promised myself right then to start with him this year. Not dissapointed

    Lazza · 01/05/2017 at 17:48

    Break Evens R7:
    Bonts 126
    Pendles 123
    Sloane 96
    Ablett 43..

    Those whose price will rise – Ablett and Sloane. … the others likely to move only slightly – either way.

    redherringfc · 01/05/2017 at 19:09

    i think you need Pendles and the Bont asap. I'm going Pendles this week, makes my mids full premo (if you count beams) Get a plan together to get Bont when his price drops a bit.

    LoganJosh7 · 02/05/2017 at 12:02

    3 ez

Clarky · 01/05/2017 at 15:15

Getting rid of Parfitt, which of this bunch should i also get rid of?
marchbank, Hampton, JOM, Butler, Houston

    Kyle · 01/05/2017 at 16:37

    100% JOM should be your top priority to get out

Tommo09 · 01/05/2017 at 15:22

Since he is suspended, do we hold Nank?

Was going to go Parfitt to Black and O'Meara to Shaw/Hibberd

    Touk tuk · 01/05/2017 at 15:45

    I m gona hold nank. Trade a fwd rookie. Swap nank in to the fwd line.

    Kev · 01/05/2017 at 15:59

    Hold. One week out. Not injured or out of form. Hampson no closer to returning.

    Might be a hard week (again), but it's not worth the trade

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:02

    Hold

    redherringfc · 01/05/2017 at 18:11

    probably a top 6 forward for the year, so definitely hold. I wish i had a dpp in the ruck so i could give witts a run.

    Beezneez · 02/05/2017 at 11:34

    The decision gets harder when you are looking at a donut and sitting in top 200. Have Preuss on the bench and am hoping he gets a game this week to solve the problem. A trade to Witts may not be a bad idea and earns some coin but you don't want to waste trades to get Nank back in. An upgrade to Grundy is the other option but requires a healthy downgrade. I've also got Greene suspended but can cover him with Balic. Just when you think you have your options for trades covered for the week you are put on the back foot and possibly wasting trades to cover these sort of issues.

      Beezneez · 02/05/2017 at 12:31

      Miscalculated – a trade Nank to Grundy will only cost $29K but I'm hoping Preuss is playing so I don't have to contemplate in order to save the donut.

      Noirlust · 02/05/2017 at 18:18

      right there with you. and parfit going down as well makes it alot tougher, if eddy and pruess dont get a game this week, ill be sporting a donut somewhere.

DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 15:23

Price vs Scoring potential after you trade them in.

1 Pendles 577k. Should avg 115-120
2 Ablett 585k. Should avg 107-112
3 Bont 604k. Should avg 110-115
4 Cripps 513k should avg 100-105

Consider
5 Merrit 551k should avg 107-112k

    DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 15:23

    Re Merrit 107-112 lol

Touk tuk · 01/05/2017 at 15:41

Nank out for a week. Looks loke im gona cop a donut

    Touk tuk · 01/05/2017 at 15:44

    Or i could get martin and rest nank in the fwd bench

      JohndJames · 01/05/2017 at 16:24

      I have the same problem Touk,although not as bad as I thought,since it should have been two weeks at least.I'm looking at getting Ryder in since he is a Ruck/Fwd,and like you putting Nank on the fwd bench,or I might just leave him in the Ruck and hope Preuss my R3 gets a call up and if not just trade Ryder in for Parfitt.

        INPieman · 01/05/2017 at 16:30

        Preuss had a good game in the VFL & Brad Scott said he wants to find a place for him. Don't be surprised if he gets a game this week

          Beezneez · 02/05/2017 at 11:38

          I hope you're right Pieman. I heard that too and hope it's correct coz I also have Greene suspended for two weeks.

        Touk tuk · 01/05/2017 at 16:58

        Are u getting ryder as a keeper?

          JohndJames · 01/05/2017 at 17:13

          If I get him in it will be as a Keeper,plus I like the ruck/fwd durability.

      Kyle · 01/05/2017 at 16:39

      Martin is gonna drop in price and can get in the next few weeks a lot cheaper

    DrFrance · 01/05/2017 at 15:56

    What? One week for a vicious elbow? WAP.

wightyswarriors · 01/05/2017 at 15:54

Went from second in coach kings quarter final…by 3 points, to my worst SC score this year. You name the spud…I had him…plus Greene !!

Nick · 01/05/2017 at 15:59

Simpson or Zac Williams?

    KSinny · 01/05/2017 at 16:13

    Simpson or Williams for pod

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:02

    Both great options, Williams for reliability it seems.

    Danners · 01/05/2017 at 18:22

    Simpson, reliable premo over the years

Adam · 01/05/2017 at 16:08

Thoughts?
Parfitt to Parsons/Black and Stewart to Mceneice? Gives me 330k to upgrade next week.

    KSinny · 01/05/2017 at 16:12

    Probably don't get rid of Stewart cause he's still making quite a bit of cash BE still -5

Dylan · 01/05/2017 at 16:18

Who is the first rookie to cull out of Butler, Houston and Marchbank? $395,000 in the bank

    KSinny · 01/05/2017 at 16:19

    Butler

    INPieman · 01/05/2017 at 16:28

    Butler

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 16:45

    Butler

    FCAbel · 01/05/2017 at 16:52

    Maybe you can get two upgrades?

    FCAbel · 01/05/2017 at 16:53

    Butler, Houston, Marchbank imo

      Dylan · 01/05/2017 at 17:06

      Yeah I was thinking Butler and Marchbank up to Shaw and a premo forward or a double forward upgrade with Nank out. Keeping Nank though

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:01

    Houston

    Top Gun · 01/05/2017 at 21:47

    Google Supercoach Breakevens. It will take less time than reading all the replies. Lol.

Tommo09 · 01/05/2017 at 16:19

Black or Parsons this week?

    Kyle · 01/05/2017 at 16:41

    If parsons is named him. Black hasnt got good JS

      Wedge · 01/05/2017 at 18:00

      Parsons might get black's job

Kyle · 01/05/2017 at 16:31

Stef martin looks like a juicy pick up next week. With a BE over 150 could definately bring him in for around 540k. Thinking similarly on dusty aswell whos very cheap with a huge BE.

As for this week. Who is better to bring in for otten? Shaw or Simpson? Atm im looking at simpson with the much lower BE.

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 16:45

    Wait another week until Witt's bye and then pick him up for a projected 515k

      Kyle · 01/05/2017 at 16:58

      my rucks are nank and sandi. Never had witts this year.

      Trading out either buttler or houston and move nank ito the forwards to bring martin in next week seems like the best move for me.

      whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:00

      Think I will trade Witts to Martin in round 9.

Rogan · 01/05/2017 at 16:32

I can't believe I'm reading that people think Simpson is a top 6 defender. He has one good game out of six and now he's worth bringing in? Crazy talk. Carlton played out of their skin. 140 is a great score but he's not going to be doing that every week. Calm down people! Same goes with Gary and Pendles. It's only one game (Pendles has had a couple of ok ones this year, granted but the little master hasn't) Ease up on these rash decisions. Jock will no doubt cover this in the Podcast. I'd like to see a few more decent games before I jump on the bandwagons of these past SC Champions. I urge patience.

    INPieman · 01/05/2017 at 16:50

    Agree Rogan. I don't understand why anyone would bring Gary in when he has a bye in 2 weeks. I've had Simmo all season & I wouldn't be handing out a recommendation anytime soon

    Kyle · 01/05/2017 at 16:53

    What your saying may be true, but this year we MUST look for value. Over the first 7 weeks, simpson is averaging 93 still and is 80k cheaper than he was at the start of the year. A 90+ average is exactly what we need in defence this year.

    People bringing in Ablett can say hes back to his best but i agree with you. Hes had one massive game. That doesnt mean he is back to his best an will score massive every week. My plan stands an i will look at him after the byes. Bringing him in now is a mistake imo

    I started pendles this year but if i didnt i would bring him in this week over any other person.

      smart as s · 02/05/2017 at 05:26

      get gazza in or game over for you. had a feeling god was getting ready for the match against the cats.Big C is set 🙂

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 17:46

    The score of 57 Simpson was named in the centre even on the team lineups sheet, not sure where he played when he got the 73, but I'd assume some time was in the middle.

    4 out of 6 games have been 84-149 that is fine for a defender, and considering the centre playing anomaly/anomalies I'm bringing him in with no fears that he will average 90-100 for the season remaining.

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 17:54

    Plus who says one good game? 84, 91 and 149 are his last three scores…………..

      Rogan · 01/05/2017 at 18:17

      Yep, I agree he isn't the worst option going around but so many of the comments on these forums are mentioning him as a must-have after weeks of people talking about how bad he was. Not for me at this stage but that's the beauty of this game, some see value where other's don't.

        whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:27

        Just his reliability and consistency in defense the last few years have been awesome. It wasn't working his move to the midfield so I'd assume he will stay where he is.

    Top Gun · 01/05/2017 at 21:51

    Pendles is a Rolls Royce though and in regards to Simpson it depends on the role he is given. If it's a run-on roll like he's played the last few years and last week, then get him. I will be watching closely this week to see what role he plays.

      Kevdup · 02/05/2017 at 17:04

      Pendles gets points for breathing. Me and m8's are sure that his mother works at the supercoach point allocation dept. Get him in.

    Cogla13 · 02/05/2017 at 09:09

    Is your last name Josh?

    Cr0magn0n · 02/05/2017 at 11:24

    "Pendles has had a couple of ok ones this year"
    I beg to differ! 146, 120, 125, 94, 67, 149

Jim · 01/05/2017 at 16:34

Is Ablett the real deal?
I know he is the GOAT but can he keep an 110+ average?

    INPieman · 01/05/2017 at 16:45

    He's got a bye in 2 weeks. I'd suggest have a look for 2 more then make the call in round 10

      Beezneez · 02/05/2017 at 11:43

      That's the plan – he did look like the Gary of old on the weekend – got a lot of his own ball and didn't rely on easy handouts from teammates.

    FCAbel · 01/05/2017 at 16:54

    Definitely. I want more so am unsure. Can he average 120+?

      Big G · 01/05/2017 at 17:11

      This is Gary Ablett we are talking about. I don't see why post-bye round he can't average 110 +

        whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 19:15

        Yep

    finnigin · 01/05/2017 at 17:18

    is he fit now , think so, will he be tagged now that his fit, no he cant be tagged when fit -they just stand off him and stop him from running forward, will he average 120 for the remainder of the year, if he stays healthy you can bank on it, also double gary is the meaning of not even thinking about captain option for the remainder of the year. having said all that might wait till round 10

      Wedge · 01/05/2017 at 18:08

      I think he's fit. Just taking him ages to be confident his body can do what he needs it to do. 9 tackles was a good sign

    smart as s · 02/05/2017 at 05:29

    silly question. Doubters will be punished. Get him ASAP or cry for next few weeks wen his price rise to 700k

Sherrin Sniffers · 01/05/2017 at 16:35

If Myers is named will anyone trade him in? or wait till he is on the bubble (if he makes it). Was considering him a downgrade
Bring in Gablett or Pendles?

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 16:44

    I am gonna wait one week due to the lack of rookies on the bubble next. If he shows something good I will pick him up next.

    INPieman · 01/05/2017 at 16:47

    Loads brought Spencer in early. Ask them how they feel about it now

    Kev · 01/05/2017 at 16:52

    Will wait. Especially now with SPP's b.e back down to 0

    Noirlust · 02/05/2017 at 18:22

    I actually brought Myers in last week. =/
    Because i dont trust Balic will hold up, could be a fools errand right there

Samuel · 01/05/2017 at 16:59

25 trades – a bit in the bank. Traded WHE out last week. Ouch
Shaw, Adams, Tuohy, Marchbank, Otten, Hampton (Hibberd, Newmann)
Pendles, Danger, JPK, Fyfe, Beams, Swallow, P-Pepper, O'Meara (Barrett, Pickett, Parfitt)
Sandi, Martin (Strnadica)
Dahl, Macrae, Nank, Rough, Balic, Butler (Eddy, Taranto)

Advice with Byes in mind, smart move to make this week? Thanks

    JohndJames · 01/05/2017 at 17:25

    Hi Samuel,I can see three sore thumbs in your side,Swallow,JOM and Roughy,they really should have been gone by now.I traded both JOM and Roughy last week,even then it was a week late,but other things were more pressing at the time,as I'm sure you understand.Apart from those terrible three,your side is travelling well.

      Tyruddanaut · 01/05/2017 at 17:55

      I disagree with roughy ( mainly because I'm running out of trades like an NBA team) I think he'll come good. In addition Swallow isn't doing any favours

    Tyruddanaut · 01/05/2017 at 17:54

    Marchbank/ Omeara out. Upgrade Midfield

    redherringfc · 01/05/2017 at 18:34

    Get rid of Marchbank, with your form from last week he will then hit out a nice 125 and get my scoring back in order.

    or

    as JohndJames says, you have three problems, fix two this week (1up, hanners is cheap, 1 down, say black) the third next week, along with Otten, who will be on the nose very soon. that should be enough money to get you 2 or maybe 3 full premiums.

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 19:15

    Would trade Hampton out before Marchbank, as he can get you 70-ish on field instead of Hampton's 50's.

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 20:06

    Roughy and JOM to Zach Merrett and Fisher

Jess · 01/05/2017 at 17:08

Ok thankyou! I scored 2205 this week and finished in the top 1% so hoping for another good one if Buddy and Murphy can step up.

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:20

    You're fine, hold.

Pom · 01/05/2017 at 17:09

Is it still worth trading in Balic considering the options for downgrades this week? He is currently only 40k more expensive than Black and with what seems to be better JS and DPP.

    Ja191 · 01/05/2017 at 17:22

    yeah but with Ross… hopefully he'll keep playing

    Declan · 01/05/2017 at 17:32

    Not a bad idea Pom, considering not much more than black and could potentially average 10-15points more than black. Black like on the weekend has showed that sometimes he can go missing.Up to you but don't reckon basic is a bad option.

    Tyruddanaut · 01/05/2017 at 17:52

    What's JA

      Tyruddanaut · 01/05/2017 at 17:52

      JS*

        Pom · 01/05/2017 at 17:54

        Job security mate. Gold dust for some of these rookies!

    Top Gun · 01/05/2017 at 21:53

    Not sure he is worth it at this price. Time will tell.

tybrisbane · 01/05/2017 at 17:16

Zac Williams or Heath Shaw?

    Nick · 01/05/2017 at 17:26

    I have shaw and tossing up between Zac or Simpson
    Both are great options but wld go Shaw

    Tyruddanaut · 01/05/2017 at 17:52

    I see you have stolen my fantastic name and I just hope it's not a coincidence. I'll do you a favour and say Shaw

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 17:58

    Williams. Stepped up last year and the consistency on his scoring graph is a beautiful thing.

    Danners · 01/05/2017 at 18:21

    One is a proven top 3 defensive premo for the past few seasons, the other is an unproven younger defender. Take your pick

Alex · 01/05/2017 at 17:16

Community I'm stumped. 134,000 in the bank, Nank is going to get weeks and I have no ruck cover an I'm very keen to keep him what do I do. Have ruck fed swing btw

    finnigin · 01/05/2017 at 17:36

    ryder

    Ja191 · 01/05/2017 at 17:37

    Nank got the one week, swing him forward and bench him. hold

      Alex · 01/05/2017 at 17:39

      Yes but I have no ruck cover

        Tyruddanaut · 01/05/2017 at 17:50

        Trade in Ryder this week as a POD choice and cover for Nank. If not don't panic trade him out. One week is not long in your situation I would hope a rookie comes out or lose the points

        frogger · 01/05/2017 at 23:54

        Got a Pickett or the like up forward? Pickett + 134k allows you to grab Tom Boyd, e.g.
        Not going to give GAJ a run for his money, but is 250k (so priced 50-ish) , has DPP and an OK run in terms of ruck opponents next 4 wks

    Tyruddanaut · 01/05/2017 at 17:48

    He's only got one week out don't worry

    Lazza · 01/05/2017 at 17:53

    He only got 1 week.
    Swinging him to the FWD line is good, but who to bring in .. Grundy and Martin will both take price hits next week.
    Ideally I'd wait for them, but without choice its a tough call.

    What were you planning to do in R12?

    JohndJames · 01/05/2017 at 17:56

    Hi Alex,you need to trade out a dud rookie from your fwds,swing Nank to the fwd bench and bring in Ryder or Martin as your ruck.I prefer Ryder for his ruck/fwd durability.

    Wedge · 01/05/2017 at 18:12

    Nank only out one week. Who's on your ruck bench?

    Derek · 01/05/2017 at 18:39

    have a think about Tom Boyd in forward line to swing into ruck to cover the Nank. He is only $246k with a BE of 27. Almost rookie priced, and one good score he could be a cash cow.

      Wedge · 01/05/2017 at 23:03

      This might be a genius call. Tom boyd will probably be rucking against a nankless richmond. Cosmic

      frogger · 01/05/2017 at 23:56

      Could have saved myself the trouble of posting, you'd already covered it.

Neverweaken · 01/05/2017 at 17:17

With every man and his dog jumping on Simpson and Shaw in defence, do I have to go way outside and look at Roberton, T MacDonald and possibly McGovern. TMac is looking interesting.

    Tyruddanaut · 01/05/2017 at 17:48

    Roberton jumped in price, steer clear. But the rest look fantastic POD options

      whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 17:56

      Agreed

      Northernsoul74 · 01/05/2017 at 19:17

      I started T Mac. He's been frustrating but starting to show form. Not sure he's a top 6 defender.

    Lazza · 01/05/2017 at 17:56

    I'm holding on bringing in Shaw … it was only his 2nd ton in 6 games and his score was inflated by Doggies poor kicking – 19 kick-outs, mostly to himself … not convinced yet..

      DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 17:57

      Can't believe I chickened out on McGovern
      Swapped him to Rance on the hour before first game of season lol

      whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:14

      I'd take Williams over Shaw in a second. Reliable.

      Kev · 01/05/2017 at 18:16

      Shaw's been padding his stats by kicking to himself for years!

        Wedge · 01/05/2017 at 22:20

        Not shaw kicking to yourself makes a difference for sc. They should still give points for a blinding kick out 50 meters to a good option if you haven't played on first. Fantasy stats obviously a big difference

    Harry H · 01/05/2017 at 21:59

    I had McGovern last year. Now I'm thinking I was 1 year too early. He and Hurley have pricked my interest but can't pass up getting Shaw in this week. Have to go proven gun first at similar prices

Neverweaken · 01/05/2017 at 17:40

Thinking Witts to McEvoy this week. McEvoy faces Pederson (who I will bring in next week) looking at both of these as about 6 week trades. Is that silly

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 17:56

    Yeah keep Witts at least to his bye, concentrate on rookies and value defenders, mids over next couple.

    Danners · 01/05/2017 at 18:19

    It is silly if you don't think he will be a top 4 ruck

    Top Gun · 01/05/2017 at 21:54

    McEvoy….what are you drinking?

    Cr0magn0n · 02/05/2017 at 11:29

    LIsten up. You need to keep Witts, he will be invaluable through the bye rounds, after that trade him if you need. This is a golden opportunity to have solid, dependable ruck coverage through the bye rounds.

Tyruddanaut · 01/05/2017 at 17:47

Steele Sidebottom is highly overlooked in mid
The guys got bloody balls of Steele ending last year with 580k price. And he's fallen right to rock-Sidebottom (mind the jokes).
465k with a break even of 129
Let that sink in when choosing 500k+ players

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 17:55

    He's got some crap scores honestly, and it's not like he started slow, they are every second week.

    DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 17:55

    a brilliant option to look at indeed
    Will wait for another week though…
    Like Franklin with a BE of 110 we can all wait one more week.
    Imagine picking up these two players for only 455k each

John · 01/05/2017 at 17:52

Which midfielder is at the best price to pick up this week.

I have 775K so i could get anyone, but im clearly not going to get Sloane or Bont due to the inflated prices.

Any Suggestions?

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 17:54

    Pendles

      DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 18:04

      If you have Pendles I would recommend Merrit or Ablett

        Nick · 01/05/2017 at 18:24

        Cripps is starting to get into it won't be that low for awhile. His cheap and gone down 80k. Be of 90 this week so either this week or next get him in

          Declan · 01/05/2017 at 18:54

          Why not Bont I believe his price isn't inflated

    Brian · 01/05/2017 at 18:58

    Bont is cheap mate. Absolute must at 600k

      Dutch · 01/05/2017 at 20:43

      Agree Bont is still cheap at $604k, just as good a value as Pendles in my opinion – he'll still be good value next week given his be is still 126 so he won't go up much even with another 130+ score.

    pod · 01/05/2017 at 18:59

    Bont or Gaz or Pendles

    Karrots · 01/05/2017 at 20:34

    An interesting option this week would be Joel Selwood, he's been overlooked by a fair few coaches (only in 8.4% of teams) with his lowest score being a 73 this week which is largely due to Geelong's poor performance overall. He's capable of hitting some big scores, scoring 154 just a week ago in Rd 5. Until Rd 6 he had not dropped below 100 having scores of 106, 128, 121, 110, 154 from rounds 1-5 respectively. In the next two weeks the Cats face Gold Coast and Essendon meaning he has a likely chance of cracking 115+ with the following three games all being at home against the Bulldogs, Port and Adelaide. With an average of 115.3 already despite being a historically slow starter Selwood presents to be a relatively unique pick who's history and current form both justify his inclusion in a side over several other popular mids. With his only downside being a slightly inflated price at $609,300 he's definitely worth a look.

The BONT · 01/05/2017 at 17:55

GOOD or BAD
Butler and Beams
FOR
Parson and Bontempelli

    DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 18:08

    Don't like the 2nd trade.
    1) your cashing in a lose
    2) your using a trade to lose 125k cash
    3) your using a trade to gain probably 15-20 pts Per week
    4) your no closer getting to full premo

    redherringfc · 01/05/2017 at 18:39

    I can't believe The BONT doesn't have The BONT.

    Anyway, i'd be keeping Beams for a while. (he's not injured is he). He might not be top 8 mid, but he's not far off. It looks too much like a sideways trade to me. If your team is at the tweaking stage then go for it, but if you are still building, keep beams.

      whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 19:14

      Agree with that, if we rage traded every mid who scored in the 60's, we'd have almost nobody left.

        KSinny · 01/05/2017 at 19:57

        This I agree with

marcusproudson · 01/05/2017 at 17:56

Looking at bringing in parsons or black this week. Can't decide. Thoughts everyone.?

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:12

    Not a fan of either of them myself.

      marcusproudson · 01/05/2017 at 20:06

      Looking at downgrading a forward rookie who has bottomed out for more cash gen. suggestions.?

    Ja191 · 01/05/2017 at 18:12

    Parsons assuming he plays

    Dutch · 01/05/2017 at 20:39

    Out of those two, Parsons

Joe T · 01/05/2017 at 18:00

Think defence is the area where most teams are going to be separated this year, a fair few options that could average anything between 90-100.

Already have Docherty, Laird and Shaw. Of the 3 remaining DEF spots I think Adams and Montagna are certainties, does that mean Roberton or Hibberd as my D6 or are there other options I should be considering?

    DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 18:16

    I think your correct on that one

    I love how strong my defence is on paper but my pods are more like plops currently.
    Plan was to get Doch in when he fell under 520k but that will never happen lol guys a champ

    Got Laird, Adams, Lloyd, JJ (pod), Rance (pod) got strong rookies in Marchbank, Newman and Stewart.

      Joe T · 01/05/2017 at 18:53

      Lloyd's been a good DEF pick so far, JJ and Rance not the greatest.

      Simpson is very well priced but I'm not sure if hes playing the same SC friendly role he normally has (Marchbank and Plowman appear to be rotating in that role). Not to mention before last year he floated around the 95 average for 4 seasons. Good but not great.

      Hibberd is also very tempting but you'd want a 90-95 avg minimum from him if he's a keeper. I really like Roberton as a POD but unsure if he can keep this up considering his history. Like i said, DEF appears to be the area separating teams this year!

    Nick · 01/05/2017 at 18:26

    Simpson dude. He will certainly be in top 6 defenders his be is low and is going up. Get on him this week.

      DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 18:33

      Yeah gotta get Simpson in asap due to his price.
      Adams try get him after his bye
      And then pick up a good pod

    Dutch · 01/05/2017 at 20:40

    Not sure that Montagna is a certainty to be top 10 def

Greg · 01/05/2017 at 18:06

Hey guys thoughts on trading otten to vickers Willis and then downgrading parfitt to black/parsons so I have enough cash to get pendles or Bont next week.
Or trade parfitt to Oliver this week. My midfield is terrible btw I got beams jpk hanners treloar who are all underperforming and I'm looking for an ultra premo. Not sure if Oliver is that

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:12

    I'd trade Marchbank or Hampton before Otten butt hat's just me and could be completely wrong.

    DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 18:13

    Can't go wrong with Pendles
    Oliver will run outa gas soon enough

      whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:24

      Oliver will prove you wrong haha.

        Greg · 01/05/2017 at 18:36

        Don't have marchbank and can't afford Oliver if I trade Hampton. Reckon Oliver will keep his 110 average?

        Captain Risky · 01/05/2017 at 18:41

        Probably my teams most consistent player, hasn't gone below 100 yet. Still performing well without Gawn or Lewis.

        Up against the Hawks this week, 120 + easy! 😉

        DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 18:44

        Seriously?
        You have yet to already see that his top end is now severely dmg by lack of ruck, Lewis back and Hibberd to boot, enjoy the shared scoring mate

          DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 18:45

          This comment to Whatyasmokin sry

          whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 19:13

          Hard to say as he only has one high score of 139. Racks up possessions regardless.

    Cr0magn0n · 02/05/2017 at 11:31

    Don't trade Oliver in, that ship has sailed.

Don't Blush Baby · 01/05/2017 at 18:06

Is Parsons a walk up start this week? If so who goes out , me thinks it will be A.Black – what do the Cats supporters think ?

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 18:11

    I'm not even sure on why everyone is so keen to get Parsons. If him and Aaron black are in one week out the other, seems hard to even pick one that will be reliably getting games, let alone scoring well.

      DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 18:19

      Think Parsons adds much more to the team than any other Geelong rookie imo
      And yeah Scott likes the bloke

    DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 18:11

    cant remember who wrote this in comment section but he said that Scott will be playing Parsons

    INPieman · 01/05/2017 at 18:12

    Parfitt won't be playing for a while. Black has no JS at all. Parsons I'd expect to come back

    pod · 01/05/2017 at 18:20

    You'd have to believe Parsons will play more often than Black unless a fill in tall fwd is needed. Black looked ordinary y'day but so did the Danger and Selwood.

TDEV · 01/05/2017 at 18:24

Should I be going for a mid premo, defence premo or forward premo? Currently have 3 in backline, 7 mid (including beams) and 3 fwd (including nank). Can go anywhere, dont have pendles.

    Derek · 01/05/2017 at 18:40

    doesn't matter, will need them all at some point. Who ever is at their low point.

    Swans2012 · 01/05/2017 at 18:52

    I normally look for my weakest on field rookie and try to get him off the ground

Steeeve · 01/05/2017 at 18:31

Ideally I'd wait another week but I'm bringing in Buddy this week. He's cheap, he has a good run coming up and most of all I need to avoid a donut at all costs. Have Nank, Parfitt, Hannan and Eddy. Fair chance even if I go Parfitt to Buddy I'll still have a donut on field…

DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 18:42

My goodness Franklin and Merrett will be tasty next week

SideshowBob · 01/05/2017 at 18:44

Does Mcniece have good Job Security?

    pod · 01/05/2017 at 19:01

    Not likely unless he lights it up.

    Hawks · 01/05/2017 at 20:19

    Don't think he will play more than 6-8 games this season

      Dutch · 01/05/2017 at 20:35

      Agree, even that may be generous …

    jez_m · 02/05/2017 at 10:06

    Don't reckon he'll hold his spot this week with Kelly coming back and Myers also destroying the VFL

Don't Blush Baby · 01/05/2017 at 18:54

For the teams with Nank in the FWD line is anyone thinking of trading ? With a BE of 90 and @ 484k could be an excellent up or downgrade ,thoughts ?

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 19:10

    Have considered it, but probably a hold with only one week out and the inconsistency of most forwards.

    Northernsoul74 · 01/05/2017 at 19:12

    Bigger fish to fry. People were talking him up as keeper only last week.

      whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 19:18

      Yep, looking back at his scores, have to keep him.

    Top Gun · 01/05/2017 at 21:58

    Averaging 105 atm

Joshua · 01/05/2017 at 19:04

Hampton out for EVW
And Marchbank out for Simmo this week.

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 19:10

    Good trades.

Chris · 01/05/2017 at 19:07

With my original tactic of having nank in the fed line going down hill when I swapped him into the ruck when Gawn got injured means I have no cover in the ruck..

Thoughts on trading out Houston and often, swapping nank into the fwd line and bringing in grundy and mcniece..
Only issue I have is that a lot of Collingwood players and I want to bring in Pendlebury next week..
Meaning I'd have Adams, Pendles, grundy, treloar and WHE until I trade him out

    Northernsoul74 · 01/05/2017 at 19:11

    It's annoying but grundy will be a lot cheaper in a week or 2, as will Stef Martin.

InTheNickofTime · 01/05/2017 at 19:10

Thank god for the reverse trade button – so I can thoroughly enjoy trading out and then trading back in all the bastards that burnt me this week.

    Cr0magn0n · 02/05/2017 at 11:34

    Ha! I do that too!

Lenny · 01/05/2017 at 19:13

Thoughts on trades?
Hampton and Murphy (who I started with) to GAJ and mcniece.
Bank $317, then leaves cash to next week upgrade josh Kelly and d beams to Sloane and Pendlebury next week.
Thoughts?

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 19:18

    Heck of a midfield if you also have Bont.

      Lenny · 01/05/2017 at 19:30

      yep ahaha

    jez_m · 02/05/2017 at 10:07

    Focus on upgrading rookies before flicking Beams and Kelly.

Matty · 01/05/2017 at 19:14

Not one mention of the bont after another massive score of 141!?

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 19:17

    Just seems normal lol

      DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 20:30

      He is a beast for sure 🙂

    Russty_ · 01/05/2017 at 22:54

    Very glad I started with his lanky ass, he's a Howitzer gun and will probably start over 600k next season.

Adam · 01/05/2017 at 19:19

Team:
Adams Laird Doc
Otten Hampton Newman (Stewart, EVW)
Pendles, Danger, Dusty, Beams, Fyfe, Parker, Sam Powell Pepper, D. Swallow (Barret, Deluca, Fisher)
Sandilands, Witts (Cameron)
Dahl, Macrae, Greene, Nank, WHE, Parfitt>Parsons (Eddy, Pickett>Black)

Just did Parfitt>Parsons and Pickett>Black (Greene, Nank in forwardline)

Only concern is not doing an upgrade this week.

Any ideas of what trades i can do next week?

jacob · 01/05/2017 at 19:30

thoughts on painting the fence and just bringing in mumford?
i love the big fella and regretfully didnt start with him this season

    pod · 01/05/2017 at 19:36

    Mumford is a gun but an injury risk

      jacob · 01/05/2017 at 19:39

      i agree however swapping nank into fwd line can hopefully mitigate the risk aswell as avoiding a donut in the ruck this week.. i like the set and forget and thought i had it with gawn and he is injured and have the money.. cant see grundy or martin averaging anything close to mumford tbh and goldy is playing average footty

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 19:39

    High price at the moment. Maybe hold a few weeks.

      Touk tuk · 01/05/2017 at 19:48

      Im going martin. I know he is going to be cheaper in couple of weeks but i need someone this round. Cant c the point of getting someone whos not hoing to be a keeper.
      Thoughts?

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 19:52

    Like it

Dusty Spurs · 01/05/2017 at 19:45

Thoughts on going Parfitt –> Parsons and Otten –> Simpson.

Pretty happy with the Parfitt to Parsons trade, I think that is solid and speaks for itself.

I would like thoughts on Otten to Simpson though community. I think Simpson will continue to average reasonably high going forward and has a very low break even this week. Otten will likely continue to make cash, but slowly from here on out.

    JoshA · 02/05/2017 at 09:33

    Identical to what I'm looking at myself, main concern though is that otten starts pumping out 90s again hahahaha

      Dusty Spurs · 02/05/2017 at 12:29

      Also a concern, but I think with Jenkins back in his scores will be closer to his first and most recent game.

Andy · 01/05/2017 at 19:47

Is Bont now a better captains option than Danger?

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 19:51

    Yes last week.

      DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 20:31

      Haha
      Bont is just as worth as any for a VC play then loop if 130+

    Russty_ · 01/05/2017 at 22:53

    Not sure…but, maybe not the best idea to write Danger off after one low score. Not saying you are, but even questioning it is blasphemy, blasphemy I tells ya!

      Wedge · 01/05/2017 at 22:55

      Danger has looked out of sorts for three weeks now. I'm willing to anger the gods and take the C off him just so he pumps out a 160

Justin · 01/05/2017 at 19:51

Which trades
1.parfitt to black and hampton/otten to either laird/docheety/Simpson/hibberd

2. Marchbank to hibberd and otten to Heeney(dpp)

3. March to McNeice and otten to bontempelli(dpp)

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 19:58

    1. Laird or Simpson.

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 19:59

    And hampton out for me.

    TheLoneRanger · 01/05/2017 at 20:04

    how do you get Otten to Bont ? thanks 🙂

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 21:23

    1 (hampton to Doch)

Chris_Judd · 01/05/2017 at 19:54

Traded Parfitt down to Parsons. Since Nankervis is injured, i traded out Matera (130 BE) and moved Nank to the forward line and brought in Stef Martin. Could get Grundy and get a bit more money in the bank. Thoughts on the trade and whether or not i should get Grundy or Stef?

    Hawks · 01/05/2017 at 20:24

    Martin is the right call

    b_sh3p · 01/05/2017 at 20:26

    Stef looked awful on the weekend as did all the lions… I have him hopefully bounces back. I think Grundy is solid, plenty of good ruck options this year

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 21:11

    Lol you had Matera

      Tyruddanaut · 02/05/2017 at 07:41

      That's like saying "Lol you had Pickett" or "Lol you had eddy" or "lol you had Barrett"
      Those who traded him him gained an extra 70k to put him up to a premo with little extra cash

        Cr0magn0n · 02/05/2017 at 11:38

        No it isn't! I bet my balls he didn't start with Matera, who unlike Pickett & Eddy, cost $331,900 at the start of this season. That is trading at it's worst.

          Russty_ · 03/05/2017 at 01:57

          Gotta agree with that, trading in Matera was nothing but a fool's gold mistake, waste of a trade.

    Russty_ · 03/05/2017 at 01:56

    Nank isn't injured, just suspended for one week.

b_sh3p · 01/05/2017 at 19:55

Is nobody talking danger cos they have him or is everybody just targeting cheaper options? I don't have him and surely he's worth a look at this price if half the league wanted him at his starting price $100k higher?

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 19:57

    Probably because they have him already, he's in 62% of teams. His BE is also 177 so wait.

      b_sh3p · 01/05/2017 at 20:10

      Yeh cheers, just considering pulling the trigger on a hanners or similar this week or waiting as you say for a good point to get danger cheap(er). Have Nank and Greene so may be patching up though sadly

    Neverweaken · 01/05/2017 at 20:22

    Waiting a couple of weeks. Pendles or Bont first

      b_sh3p · 01/05/2017 at 20:37

      Cheers!

        Daniel Z · 03/05/2017 at 00:21

        If I didn't have him, I'd be getting him next week (most likely).

Martin · 01/05/2017 at 20:03

Is parfitt to parsons and marchbank to Bont good?

    b_sh3p · 01/05/2017 at 20:36

    Yes

    Dutch · 01/05/2017 at 20:44

    Certainly is

    Cr0magn0n · 02/05/2017 at 11:39

    Yep

    pod · 02/05/2017 at 11:57

    nice

    Finnius123 · 02/05/2017 at 16:29

    Yup

iLoveNMFC · 01/05/2017 at 20:17

Marchbank to Black via DPP and Parfitt to Grundy bringing Nank up forward
OR
Otten to Parsons via DPP and Parfitt to Martin bringing Nank up forward
OR
Cop the donut…

    b_sh3p · 01/05/2017 at 20:33

    I like option 2 better as I have both otten and marchbank and think otten is a slightly better keeper. Wish I could move nank into fwd line! Hoping Preuss gets named to avoid a zero

    Dutch · 01/05/2017 at 20:48

    If going for rank have to avoid the donut – if going for league I would cop the donut.

    For rank, both Grundy and Martin have high be's so it's a bummer having to trade one of them in this week, but unless you have high number of trades left I would choose Martin as he's been the more consistent / higher scorer this week. Have to hope / assume his low score in R6 was an aberration.

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 21:21

    I like option 2 as well

Mike · 01/05/2017 at 20:18

Trade nank or take a 0

    Touk tuk · 01/05/2017 at 21:34

    Swing nank to the fwd line and get a bye favourable premo ruck. Nank will be a top 6 fwd i think

Neverweaken · 01/05/2017 at 20:25

Thoughts on McEvoy. I keep looking at him. Should smash Pedersen this week. Dirt cheap and hopefully averages 95 here on in. What is his injury risk fitness risk like

    Dutch · 01/05/2017 at 20:50

    Most wouldn't consider McEvoy a keeper, your forecast 95 average from here on in is rather optimistic – don't do it ….

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 21:20

    I don't like it

    JohndJames · 01/05/2017 at 22:25

    Now that is a left field option,not one I would do though,better rucks out there at the moment.Not sure why you think McEvoy will smash Pederson this week,Pederson was one of the Dees best players scored 114pts I know McEvoy played well too,but smash is a bit over the top.

    Randomcliche2 · 02/05/2017 at 10:56

    Big boy is in career best form at the moment. Form is temporary, class is permanent. He was touted as a future saints captain. So a bit of column A and B here. But you must remember that as the season progresses you will find a bloke called Vickery and then Ceglar will both at various points in time make their way back into the team. This will hurt Big boy's scores. He never really score that well back in the days when Ceglar was out if Hale was there…just keep it in mind that only 1 them needs to get back in the team to have this move hurt you. As a Hawks fan though I seriously hope he keeps it up. BOG 2 weeks ago, and Best hawk prolly on the w/e in a thrashing. It would have been visionary to bring him in two/three weeks ago with Vickery being dropped because form/injury… all the best.

Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 20:31

Thoughts on Jeremy mcgovern? What does everyone reckon he will average for the rest of the year? Could be a good POD and has the coveted round 12 bye.

    b_sh3p · 01/05/2017 at 20:36

    I don't see him as a premium, Id be targeting rookies or premiums personally

      Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 21:20

      He could end up a premium – averaging 110 over the last three rounds and 95 overall.

    Randomcliche2 · 02/05/2017 at 11:04

    I don't know bro. He's got soooo much class. If I knew what role he was going to play, I'd buy him, but I don't. FWD no (even though went large), RUC perhaps, DEF now we're talking. I don't like buying utility players because the coach can put them anywhere to fix something which is going wrong. McGov is that bloke. But good week to buy as pretty close to starting price, but I think people will be jumping on Hibberd this week for DEF speculative premo.

    pod · 02/05/2017 at 11:54

    McGovern will be solid if he stays on the park. Adam Simpson recently indicated that his role will be across half back from now on.

Bailey · 01/05/2017 at 20:44

What to do?

This week:
Marchbank-Hibbard
JOM-Parson

Next week :
Parfitt-Dusty

Or

This week:
Parfitt- S Martin (To avoid Nanks 0)
JOM-Parson

Next week:
Otten-Hibberd

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 21:19

    Like option 2. Give hibberd another weeks look as well. Avoiding a doughnut is also very important – I like the trade

Andy · 01/05/2017 at 20:45

Does EVW have beter JS then Mcniece?

    whatyasmokin · 01/05/2017 at 21:08

    I'm trying to work that out myself right now.

      Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 21:18

      Along with everyone else

    Russty_ · 02/05/2017 at 00:27

    Neither, have very much at all I feel.

    Dice · 02/05/2017 at 07:50

    He has a lot more JS than McNiece.
    Aaron Mullett also injured now, poor old McNiece will be a victim of Essendon's poor performance

neil Demons Delight · 01/05/2017 at 20:46

it is going to be difficult to reach full real prem early if at all given our rookies available.I am wondering whether to go for the m9 F7 players such as Motlop in previous years .Not a premium but the best available when it goes wrong.. these players are currently 100 plus less than your real prems .The players I have in mind are Steele and Hibberd both of whom I have bagged both are in the top 10 but not ubers/ .They are due to make up to 50 plus in a few weeks and will be close to your downgraded uber prices Surely it is better to get Hibberd and Steele for 800 capable of 90 each than your simmo type capable of 120 and a bad rook with no JS capable of 60 and get stuck with him.Trades come into it if either has to become a Hanners or Roo later but can we afford them and will we be able to afford Hibbo/Steele then as well Hard to get to full REAL prems this year

Jordan · 01/05/2017 at 21:10

Nank got 1 week right? If he is I really need preuss to play or I'm absolutely f*****

    Dice · 02/05/2017 at 07:51

    ha same

Tooth Fairy · 01/05/2017 at 21:11

Seriously need some help after three sub 2000 scores now

Simmo, Laird, Otten, Marchbank, Hampton, Newman (Stewart, Williamson)
Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Treloar, Hanners, Beams, SPP (Balic, Barrett, Hibberd)
Grundy, Sandilands (Strnadica)
Dahlhaus, Lynch, Higgins, Nank, Houston, Butler (Hardwick, Eddy)

$395,000 and 22 trades, I'm tempted to jump the gun and go straight for a Pendles, Zerrett but need proper advice

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 21:16

    Hampton to EVW and Barrett to Pendlebury. Next week go butler to Macrae and otten to Shaw (you might not be able to afford this). It is just vital that you get the premium process going. Look at all of the other trades everyone else on this page is making rookie wise and follow suit to get in fallen premiums. You seem to have burnt through some trades early (same as me) good luck!

    SCdonkey · 01/05/2017 at 21:53

    Sorry to say this but it seems like you've wasted a lot of trades having only 22 tradrs left. Still playing 4 Rookies down back holding too much cash in the bank.

    I would personally use that cash and double upgrade two of your Rookies either two at the back or one back and one fwd.

    Wedge · 01/05/2017 at 22:44

    Back in your mids this week. Upgrade marchbnk or otten. Swing strn and put nank on ruck bench, he's out this week. Upgrade houston or butler

    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 00:19

    Hampton>EVW

    Possibly Houston/Butler to McCrae/JJK/Reiwoldt

    Merret BE 152, Pendlebury BE 124, can wait.

    Without Nank your forward line is going to be lean this week.

    Randomcliche2 · 02/05/2017 at 11:16

    Check you bye structure as well. You appear to have a lot of Round 13 players, which is okay, just make sure you can add premos which help your bye period.

Jono · 01/05/2017 at 21:25

Best defender for $518k Lloyd? Shaw? Someone else?

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 21:39

    Depends on your bye. I reckon Lloyd if it doesn't matter.

    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 00:17

    Loyd, Williams, Simpson.

Rastabout · 01/05/2017 at 21:28

Heeney or Wingard and why.

    Kim · 01/05/2017 at 22:20

    Neither of them both won't be top 6-8 forwards why bother, cheaper for a reason both are average players, occasionally play a good game not consistent enough.

      whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 00:16

      Agree

    Wedge · 01/05/2017 at 22:51

    Wingard has history of being inconsistent but did a pre season with the midfield group. If he gets more mid time then he will score more. Unsure with boak coming back and spp spending a lot of time in there.
    Heeney is young so not a lot of full season data on him. Could be breakout year but also depends on how much mid time he gets I reckon. Both a big punt to take

    Harry H · 02/05/2017 at 08:55

    I had Wingard last year and he was awful. I don't think he plays mid enough and remember Boak has to come back in as a permanent mid. Considering how Sydney are going, surely Heeney will play plenty of midfield time with them out of the finals race. They'll look to the future

      Kev · 02/05/2017 at 10:06

      Look at Wingard again after his bye. Heeney played midfield in JLT and is playing midfield now. Would have been a popular pick before he went down with glandular

Paul · 01/05/2017 at 21:29

Thoughts please.
Nank to forwards and bringing in Ryder. Do you think Ryder could be a keeper ? Could be a good DPP during the bye rounds.

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 22:10

    I personally don't like Ryder as he won't be a top two ruck or a top 8 forward

    Kim · 01/05/2017 at 22:22

    Agreed not even close to top 4 rucks this year waste of a trade, unless playing for overall take the 0 it's only 1 week. If playing for overall get Martin or mummy depending on your bye structure and other ruck eg if sandi get Martin as he has rd 11 bye

    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 00:34

    Wouldn't entertain it.

Tim · 01/05/2017 at 21:34

If Hibberd scores about 100 how much will his price increase?

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 21:39

    35k

      Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 21:49

      I think it's worth the wait to see if he can pump out one more decent score

        SCdonkey · 01/05/2017 at 22:00

        I think it's worth the wait. In saying that, I'm not waiting. I was gonna start with Hibberd if was playing in Round 1. I've seen and waited long enough to see him play. And like what I've seen so far welcome to my team at D5 Hibberd a long with Pendlebury.

          TigerMAN · 01/05/2017 at 22:07

          who are you trading out for Hibberd?

            SCdonkey · 01/05/2017 at 22:09

            Ottens and Hampton out Pendle and Hibberd in this week.

              SCdonkey · 01/05/2017 at 22:11

              Defense stands at the moment
              Heater, Simmo, Laird, Lloyd, Hibberd, Newman, Stewar and lil Hibberd

                Kim · 01/05/2017 at 23:09

                Nice def mate, you must be weak in forwards and or mids though?

                  SCdonkey · 02/05/2017 at 00:15

                  Mid as it stands
                  Danger, Pendle, Trealor, Hanners, Priddis, Fyfe, Crouch, SPP, Balic, Barret and Deluca

                  Fwd
                  Dalh, JJK, Buddy, Nank, Butler, Hannan, Pickett and Eddy

                  Doesnt look too weak for me. Working on trying to get it all Premo and keepers as quick as I can.

                    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 00:33

                    Forward is weak……….without nank this week.

                    SCdonkey · 02/05/2017 at 00:42

                    Whats 1 week? What are you really smoking SMH

                    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 10:59

                    You said doesn't look to weak to you, I just replied with a simple comment lol.

                    If Pickett and Eddy don't play don't you have a donut? ffs

                    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 10:59

                    Donkey alright

                    Randomcliche2 · 02/05/2017 at 11:24

                    Don't tell them Balic has DPP and you can swing him with Pickett 😛 Your team looks good (assuming Wittilands ruck combo). Glad you've got the confidence to go straight in Hibberd. I'm considering 3 options 1. Ablett (to improve bye round structure before he is stoopid expensive), 2. double down, f all options next week or 3. Hibberd. 117k in bank. 16 premos atm. Thoughts?

                    kim · 02/05/2017 at 08:39

                    like i said nice def but mids are weak compared to top teams, they already have full premo mids beams is my weakest mid after bringing in hanners and pendles this weak. Crouch in mids is not a keeper and you have to play balic or spp in mids. And with nank out this week you have no bench cover unless pickett comes in and scores a massive 30-40 anyway.

                    My forwards arent amazing either but even with nank out i am loopholing taranto and if he is no good i put balic in instead better than pickett and eddy both of whom may not even play. Cash is the problem this season for sure but i upgraded my mids first as they are the highest scores and easiest to pick top 8-10 as well.

Campbell · 01/05/2017 at 21:55

Have 285k and im getting rid of omeara and parfitt.
also what is happening with nankervis suspension cause i have him in ruck and on my bench is darcy cameron.
what should i do and who should i get

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 22:09

    swing Parfitt forward and then trade out. Then chuck nankervis into the forward line and bring in Martin. Do that to avoid a zero. Alternatively paint the fence with Jaegar and Parfitt for Pendles/Zerrett and Parsons.

Jono · 01/05/2017 at 22:02

Thinking double downgrade…parfit to EVW and Houston to parsons…$340k for upgrades

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 22:06

    Nice

    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 00:32

    Not bad, see who's named for Geelong this week I guess.

JyeDie · 01/05/2017 at 22:12

Who should be looking to get out first out of Hampton, Otten, Marchbank down back. Got 328k in the bank and ready to bang in a premium.

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 22:19

    Hampton to Taylor Adams if you don't have him. If not then Doch, Laird, Lloyd, Shaw in that order

    SCdonkey · 01/05/2017 at 22:24

    Yep!!! Adams or Doc for me. Hoping I'll get one of them in couple of weeks. Either Ottens or Hampton needs culling this week, I actually culled both.

    Kim · 01/05/2017 at 22:25

    Probably Hampton depends on bye structure also and depends on who you are bringing in a lot of defenders have either rd 11 (doch, Simpson, Lloyd, Robertson) or 13 (shaw, Williams, laird, Adams)

Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 22:31

Who would you be starting this week: Hampton or Stewart? SPP or Balic?

    DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 22:46

    Hampton and SSP

      DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 22:47

      SPP*

    Kim · 01/05/2017 at 23:04

    Think Hampton can bounce back against Roos and can you loop spp maybe with Barrett and if scores well leave it if not balic on field that's what I would do I you can. I personally don't need spp in mids anymore as I have full premo mids after getting hanner last week and pendles this week. I have to play 2 rookies in forward line due to nank though this week, looping Taranto and if he goes crap Hannan or hopefully parsons instead if picked this week. Going Hampton myself in def just over Stewart. Think he can score more than Stewart if he gets enough possessions.

    Rivo · 02/05/2017 at 08:31

    Hampton & SPP. Not enough games to read Balics form
    & Hampton gets some time in the midfield.

garfield_da_cat · 01/05/2017 at 22:45

Thinking of trading marchbank and parfitt out and bring in micheal hibberd and harley balic. Any thoughts?

    Finnius123 · 01/05/2017 at 22:47

    Don't really like it. Hibberd needs a few more weeks for assessment IMO and Balic is past his bubble. I would be looking to Parsons and to other defensive premiums.

    Kim · 01/05/2017 at 23:07

    Agree with finnius missed the boat on balic, already gone up 50k, go parsons, not convinced on hibberd to injury prone and don't think he will average 95+ here on out. I would go shaw or Williams over hibberd.

    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 00:31

    Not a fan

Crow · 01/05/2017 at 23:00

Bit of a dilemma guys

Def : Laird, Shaw, Otten, Marchbank, Hampton, Newman (Williamson, Stewart)
Mid : Dangerfield, Rockliff, Fyfe, Ablett, Cripps, Pendlebury, Beams, Taranto (Parfitt, Barrett, Fisher)
Rk : Martin, Sandilands (Strnadica(
Fwd: Dahlhaus, Greene, Nankervis, Steele, Butler, Houston (Balic, Eddy)
238.5K
25 trades
My original plan was to downgrade Otten to Vicker-Willis, Then upgrade Hampton to Docherty because I want an extra premium defender, but now that Nankervis could be gone for a week and Greenes gone, im a bit confused.
Could downgrading Hampton to EVW then upgrading Eddy to Heeney be a good trade? Then i can put Balic and Heeney on for Nankervis and Greene and get rid of Eddy. Thoughts?

    Stanks21 · 01/05/2017 at 23:13

    I'm in a similar situation,
    Eddy may play this week, kicked 5 goals in SANFL on weekend,
    I'm taking a 0 from Nankervis most likely this week, not much can do about it.
    Heeney only just got back so to early to say if he will be any good in a struggling sydney team

    Russty_ · 01/05/2017 at 23:20

    I'd advise to go for Buddy over Heeney, Buddy will come good and Heeney could go to the craphouse.

Stanks21 · 01/05/2017 at 23:03

Hey Everyone. any help would be fantastic, bit stuck this week.

Laird. Adams, Roberton
Tuohy, Shaw, Newman
(Stewart, Vicker Willis)

Pendlebury, Oliver, Dalhaus,
Zorko, Fyfe, Kennedy, PP, Fisher
(Parfitt, Barret, Hibberd)

Martin, Nankervis

Yeo, Greene, Steele
Franklin, Butler, Taranto
(Hayward, Eddy)

22 Trades Left ( yes I know I wasted a couple and had to trade gawn)
50,600 in bank

Should I trade parfitt down to Parsons and leave?
Or trade Parfitt down to parsons and trade out Taranto or Butler for Hibberd in the backline? swinging Adams into the mid until I trade newman out?
Or another move?

    Russty_ · 01/05/2017 at 23:15

    You've got Nankervis and Greene both suspended this week, how have you addressed that situation?

      Stanks21 · 01/05/2017 at 23:22

      That's the issue, have no idea what to do :/ any ideas?

        Russty_ · 01/05/2017 at 23:26

        Who is your Ruck emergency?

          Stanks21 · 01/05/2017 at 23:34

          Honestly didn't think I would need one all year, so just have that guy from Freo that probably wont play all year…. starting to think I will just trade parfitt out downgrade to balic or parsons, and then cover greene with hayward and possibly eddy if he gets picked this week…

    Wedge · 01/05/2017 at 23:41

    I would trade eddy and move dahl forward. You want him there anyway by years end. That covers greene. Swing adams in mid and bring mcniece into def if he's named. Sell hayward and swing nank forward. Bring in Grundy

      Wedge · 01/05/2017 at 23:48

      Sorry just realised you would need a bit more cash already in the bank for that grundy trade

      Stanks21 · 01/05/2017 at 23:49

      Can't get Grundy, not enough cash…

      Russty_ · 01/05/2017 at 23:50

      So he's supposed to do 3 trades this week? Trade Eddy for who? Bring in Grundy how?

        Wedge · 02/05/2017 at 00:08

        Eddy trade was to move dahl forward. Then adams moves into mid leaving a def player to purchase. Mcniece is 102,000 so you could bank money if he is named and eddy isn't playing

    Russty_ · 01/05/2017 at 23:45

    You could, bring in Preuss if he's named, for Taranto, via swinging Nank or Strndick to the fwd line.

      Stanks21 · 01/05/2017 at 23:51

      Could do that but then I have to uprade preuss at some stage. not sure that is worth 1 week

        Russty_ · 01/05/2017 at 23:54

        Not necessarily, you could leave him there backing up the Rucks all year.

          Stanks21 · 02/05/2017 at 00:02

          Could trade Butler for Preuss, swing Strndick forward but then what

            Russty_ · 02/05/2017 at 00:09

            Then trade Parfitt for Balic, and swing Balic forward and hope Fisher or Barrett and Hayward get a game. I think that could work, but I have had a few drinks lol

              Stanks21 · 02/05/2017 at 00:14

              Think i will just wait till teams get named and then assess. So annoyed because ive been having a good year so far no score under 2000… then gawn gets injured and these two get suspended

                Russty_ · 02/05/2017 at 00:17

                Yeah best thing to do is wipe trades and wait until teams are named, or just take a doughnut and try to name the right captain…losing a league game ain't the end of the world, but chances are, if you pick the right Captain, you'll probably still win half your leagues anyhoo.

Andy · 01/05/2017 at 23:12

Quite happy with 2,081 top 7%, despite Ollie Wines butt tanning.

Jimmy · 01/05/2017 at 23:26

Community I'm going in with a double bang bang…looking to get rid of Parsnip and Roughead for Parsons and Black?

    Russty_ · 02/05/2017 at 00:02

    Not that keen on Parsons or Black, How much money do you have?…do you have Balic? Maybe better to upgrade Roughy than downgrade for a low Job Security rookie?

    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 00:15

    That's pretty risky as at least one of them (if not both) may end up a donut, they are depth players I reckon.

Dean · 02/05/2017 at 00:07

I'm in a bit of a conundrum that's doing my head in. I have 25 trades left and $217k in the war chest.

This week I was initially wanting to bring in Hibberd and also trade out Parfitt to Black. I understand many of you don't believe Hibberd is a great selection, however I do he was a LOCK from day one for me until he got injured. I believe he will average as good as Simpson but that's just my opinion.

That being said I can no longer do that as I have NANK & Sandi in my Ruck. I'm lucky I avoided all the carnage this week as my rank went from 5900 odd to 709 with my 2200 even score.
So I need to get Martin in for the Nank this week. I also need players who are playing in round 13 as my team is it stands will suffer come Round 13 which I was aware of.

My current team is:
DEF: Laird, Shaw, Otten, McGrath, Marchbank, Newman (Hampton, Stewart)
MID: Sloan, BONT, Pendles, Danger, Titch, Heppell, Fyfe, Pepper (Pickett, Barrett, Fisher)
RUCK: Nank, Sandi (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Lynch, WHE, Butler, Houston (Parfitt, Eddy)

Do I do the obvious and just trade out Parfitt for Black and Houston to Stef Martin via DPP bringing NANK back into my forward line which is something I wanted to do either next week or in round 8 as I initially started with Gawn. However now I gotta have Martin.

My big screw up last week was not going Fisher rather then Balic – Thanks Ross Lie ons – I hate the prick.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated in advance community.

    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 00:29

    I don't rate Black's JS. People seem to rate parsons but I'm not sure myself.

    Feel the best JS is EVW in the backline.

    mabiorsmen · 02/05/2017 at 09:31

    Personally i'd trade Hampton to EVW, sub nank forwards and trade parfitt to martin/grundy/any other ruck

whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 00:14

Hampton>EVW
Parfitt>JJK

Will grab a defensive premo and pendlebury next week. Will probably lose 20K on a player like Simpson increasing. Thing is getting Simpson this week will mean keeping Parfitt, if more injuries, suspensions or players being dropped occur then problems could snowball.

With Nank out don't want to run Houston, Butler and Balic on field so I see this as a major strengthening of my whole team, especially as the next week my forward line will be Dahl, Kennedy, Nank, McCrae, Steele and one rookie.

Works well with my byes and I feel JJK is a decent price, and a proven scorer.

    Russty_ · 02/05/2017 at 00:25

    Not sure EVW has a lot of job security, especially with how North are going, Hampton is playing North.. and is keeping Parfit for a week such a bad thing?, his price won't change. Houston and Butler will probably score better this week and Balic could even increase his average against Essendon.
    If Simpson has another big one, he could go up by 40 or 50 grand.

      whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 00:42

      Why wouldn't EVW have JS? Who's coming back? North also won on the weekend.

      Yeah keeping parfitt is risky for any late out will result in a donut. Plus he's cooked at a BE level.

      I did think about the price not changing and was originally going to cull Marchbank and Hampton for EVW and Simpson, but I could easily lose as much cash gain on March and Hampton as I will see Simpson gain.

      For me EVW is one of the last bubble boys available to me that looks like having decent JS.

      Houston and Butler both scoring better for meprobably just isn't enough, I can get more out my back line using marchbank/otten/newman/McGrath. It's stacked back there and they are fattening, Hampton feels like the weakest link.

      HIGHLY doubtful Simpson will go up another 40-50K, he is projected a 94 and increase of 19.4K.

      whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 00:45

      Nank and Parfitt out on my forward line, no swing for parfitt, so I risk a donut with a late out, I feel keeping an emergency on each line for the season is a must.*

daniel · 02/05/2017 at 01:17

mumford, martin or grundy?

    Frankstonphil · 02/05/2017 at 13:58

    That's the big question, I'm still trying to decide.

SCdonkey · 02/05/2017 at 01:28

After bringing in Pendle and Hibberd in this week
uDonkey Team is looking this
Def:
Shaw, Laird, Simmo
Lloyd, Hibberd, Newman
Stewart, Hibberd

Mids:
Danger, Pendle, Trealor, Hanners
Priddis, Fyfe, Crouch, SPP
Balic, Barrett, Deluca

Ruck:
Sandiwitts
Strnadica

Fwd
Dalhaus, JJK, Buddy
Nank, Butler, Hannan
Pickett, Eddy

Bye Rounds
Rd 9 – 3 Rooks (Witts)
Rd 11 – 4 premios, 2 keepers and 4 Rooks
Rd 12 – 3 premos, 1 keeper and 3 Rooks
Rd 13 – 6 premos 1 keeper and 3 Rooks

Is 6 premos too much to have out in Rd 13?
I guess after Rd 11 and 12 I can pick up premos to cover some premos that will be out in Rd 13.

    Wedge · 02/05/2017 at 06:59

    You have nank, hannan, pickett, eddy. That's potential two Donuts up forward depending on teams. Will you trade to avoid a zero?

    Finnius123 · 02/05/2017 at 08:30

    I have 7 out

    Randomcliche2 · 02/05/2017 at 11:48

    I have 7 premos/keepers out Rnd 13. I'm okay with that. Plenty of time to switch a couple during the bye period. I've got 4 premos out rnd 11. You might find that is actually a tougher round than first appears.

smart as s · 02/05/2017 at 06:24

Cats won't tag gazza. Never had, i'm expecting god to go massive on sat night. The stage is set, can't wait 🙂

    pod · 02/05/2017 at 08:37

    They'll go easy on him, treat him right. The game will be more of an introduction for Gaz to the young cats, the one's he hasn't met yet. Might as well get to know your new team mates sooner rather than later.

      whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 10:51

      Yeah they'll go easy on him after last week. Do you even hear yourself?

        pod · 02/05/2017 at 10:53

        Get a grip, or should I say get your hand off it?

          whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 10:56

          haha like gazza is going back to the cats.

    smart as s · 02/05/2017 at 10:18

    projected to rise by 70k in the next 2 weeks if he maintains his average. That average will be blown out of the water. I had to drop all other plans to get god in. The price rise, the form and the captaincy option makes the decision a no brainer really.

      whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 10:52

      Misses a game in round 9. Is it worth changing all other plans? These can be make or break moves.

        smart as s · 02/05/2017 at 23:47

        thought hard and long about it. Gazza is worth it. Won't forgive myself not having the captaincy on gazza when he scores another double ton. And the way he played last match, speaks volume. Lad has a point to prove. Against the cats who we all know he loves, might be gold or fools gold. We'll see.

    kim · 02/05/2017 at 10:22

    Ablett has only scored one score over 115 this year, can he back it up, we shall see i guess. I think geelong will be very fired up though after such a crap performance against collingwood especially danger and selwood hopefully. I think gc will get smashed personally, but good luck to you easy vc choice if you have ablett i reckon. I traded in pendles over ablett this week, just can't trust ablett's body to play all 22 for mine, pendles isn't called dependlebury for no reason just saying.

Rivo · 02/05/2017 at 06:57

Thoughts on this one? With Nank missing a week and Parfitt injury. Have $44k and 23 trades….

1. Otten & Parfitt to Macrae & McNiece.
2. Butler & Pariftt to Higgins (burn-man warning) & Parsons
3. Butler & Parfitt to Steele & Parsons

Option 1 gets premo to Fwd line & can swing Hampton or Stewart to D6. The other 2 gets a mid price upgrade.

    Finnius123 · 02/05/2017 at 08:25

    Option 1

Touk tuk · 02/05/2017 at 07:22

Thinking of getting tom boyd into my fwd line. Sub him with the freo ruk/fwd rookie.
Im going to keep boyd as my ruck cover for the rest of the season.

Thoughts?

    pod · 02/05/2017 at 08:31

    Good trade. He won't set the world on fire, although his GF performance was awesome, but he is cheap and can only improve.

      Kev · 02/05/2017 at 10:09

      He is cheap because he averages 49.

        pod · 02/05/2017 at 10:16

        thanks Kev

    Wedge · 02/05/2017 at 10:52

    Good plan. Tom boyd if fit should always get a game unlike pruess. Pretty much same price too. You only need him to play a great game when he's required to cover. He will go up in price, low at the moment because of the game he scored 3 when he sat on the bench after getting whacked

    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 10:55

    Poor move. Just lock in a keeper.

    Finnius123 · 02/05/2017 at 11:04

    I don't like this

      Touk tuk · 02/05/2017 at 12:02

      Only ruck keepers this year so far are Nank, Sandi and Martin

      Cox takes points off grundy

        whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 15:19

        Mumford?

Boltons Blues · 02/05/2017 at 08:21

Should we be trading Black in and hoping he gets more then 1 more game? my bench cash generation is slower then a wet week with more than half my bench not playing right now (Newman, Hibberd, Barret, Fisher, Fox, Strnadica, Pickett, Eddy)
Thinking of passing on Shaw for another week, want to see him play another game and at worst get him for a tad over 500k if he does well.
Hampton and Eddy/Pickett > Laird and Parson/Black if named
thoughts?

    INPieman · 02/05/2017 at 09:21

    I'm passing on Black if Pasrons get's a game. I just don't trust him. Also the ton falls out of his price after 1 week if he keeps playing

bob the builder · 02/05/2017 at 08:25

Would Parfitt to Tom Boyd be a waste?
Otherwise i will cop 0 from Nank.

    mabiorsmen · 02/05/2017 at 09:07

    Yes, he wouldnt get a spot after nanks return and hes only out for a week, plus wont make any cash

    TheScacman · 02/05/2017 at 09:17

    Parfitt to Parsons this week if he gets named after his suspension. Cats would be silly not to bring him in, and you'll make yourself a tidy 130K

    kim · 02/05/2017 at 10:25

    waste tom boyd is absolute crap mate, if not in the running for overall take the 0, its only a week.

Thebandit7 · 02/05/2017 at 08:28

I am stuck with JOM and roughy. Unsure whether to trade both up for Aaron Black and a premo mid or hold for couple more weeks. Only have 22 trades remaining

    Kev · 02/05/2017 at 10:11

    Rate Parsons above Black if named. Both are good moves, you took a punt on them as midpricers and they've failed miserably. Move them on

      Thebandit7 · 02/05/2017 at 13:37

      Other thing is I have the Nank and parfit! Tough one this week

    Mushy · 02/05/2017 at 17:56

    I have traded JOM to Pendles but kept Roughy for another week (At least) because when/if the Hawks start to play as a team, Roughy will get better delivery. Imagine how dreadful it must be to be a Hawk forward.
    You are running low on trades Bandit so get rid of JOM ASAP.

JoshA · 02/05/2017 at 08:33

Double downgrade or bring in kade Simpson in defence? Already have heater

    JoshA · 02/05/2017 at 09:06

    Trades would be otten to kade or Hibberd(NM) to EVW

    INPieman · 02/05/2017 at 09:19

    Can't see anything resembling a decent rookie for next week. Double down

      neil Demons Delight · 02/05/2017 at 09:26

      Myers is coming

        kim · 02/05/2017 at 12:14

        True but given his injury history i am going to wait till he has played 2 games just to be safe, others may even move on him this week or next week if they need the cash to upgrade. I got pendles in this week so i can afford to wait 2 weeks especially when taranto and spp had good games and now have very low be's.

        It looks as if there are no rookies apart from that wc coast rookie (who was absolutely crap) on the bubble next week. So double downgrade this week or one up one down is the best move this week (assuming you don;t have other issues like nank in ruck and'or greene in fwd with no bench cover). Fortunately i don't have greene and i have nank in fwd line with both bench rookies playing and i can even loophole one with balic/deluca playing after taranto.

    pod · 02/05/2017 at 12:10

    Double D

mabiorsmen · 02/05/2017 at 09:13

Should I keep otten/hampton? looking at either an otten upgrade to a fallen premo or a hampton downgrade to EVW. Dont have enough cash to trade hampton up.

    Kev · 02/05/2017 at 10:04

    I prefer the Otten upgrade move. He's done his job, made you almost 250k. Don't see EVW as a must have

    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 10:54

    Hampton to EVW is fine. Otten can be moved on to a premo whenever, considering how many times he's scored a ton another chance is warranted imo.

      Saundo · 02/05/2017 at 11:58

        kim · 02/05/2017 at 12:06

        my concern for you is you have a lot of rookies on bench not playing at the moment so not sure where your cash generation is going to come from? Plus nank out this week, you are praying pruess gets a game no doubt? Assuming pruess does play i would swap 2 of your non playing rookies for 2 who are on the bubble this week and have decent js like nvw for north in def for hibberd who i dont see coming back in anytime soon and parsons in for pickett or even florent who will be in and out of sydney side to get some cash gen going. then next week upgrade someone on any line to good premo option with bye rounds in mind.

        Hope that helps.

    Kev · 02/05/2017 at 10:02

    This looks a very good round 1 team! I think Otten is approaching cull time. With JJ back he won't be needed to play the role that he was. Only 30k to move him to Hibberd or premiums like Shaw, Simmo, Lloyd are around 480k

    Almost Butler's time as well. B.e 48 – ave 56. Downgrade to Parsons if named or use the cash in your bank.

    Jordan · 02/05/2017 at 15:26

There isn't enough SHARK MOVES being done. As a result everyone either has a GREAT week or a BAD week. Just shows how much the same the teams are. It is now time to make my first TWO SHARK MOVES if the season. This will separate me from the pack so when the next BAD week comes along I'll be shooting up the rankings.

My SHARK MOVES are two players who no one is talking about, but will easily finish the season in the elite category for their positions. Both perfect for the BYES and when I tell you who they are most people won't argue but for some unknown reason won't have them in their team.

My SHARK MOVE won't finish there. OUT goes two players with very high ownership that most people will want hold onto and scream when their output drops away.

    Russty_ · 02/05/2017 at 10:09

    Dangerfield and Laird out…Zac Dawson and Jarrod Pickett…in? Pretty Sharky…maybe only a banjo Shark though.

      Babo · 02/05/2017 at 14:29

      Out Dahlhaus
      In Fevola

    smart as s · 02/05/2017 at 10:30

    like tex for wells lol. Have fun buddy, we enjoy your mediocrity!

    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 10:48

    Who was your last shark move?

      One Touch Wonder · 02/05/2017 at 12:30

      Let's not talk about the PAST!

        whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 15:14

        haha

    Ranked1 · 02/05/2017 at 10:54

    Ok looking forward to this one

    Finnius123 · 02/05/2017 at 11:10

    Out Otten and WHE – In Mcgovern and Priddis?

      One Touch Wonder · 02/05/2017 at 12:31

      Not bad!

    Goat · 02/05/2017 at 11:32

    This sounds like the shark move that keeps on feasting… the anticipation builds…

    Captain Risky · 02/05/2017 at 11:40

    Vickery?

    kim · 02/05/2017 at 11:46

    is one of the players you are talking about dylan roberton for st kilda? I'm not going there but has put up some very impressive score of late particularly his past 3, very low ownership of under 2% i think. Highest team for last week actually captained him!! I looked at the rest of their side and they had hardly any rookies playing (not even being picked to be more precise!!) so overall they wont do any good as they will make no cash for upgrades later on.

    Let me know if i am on the money one touch.

      kim · 02/05/2017 at 11:57

      Also its not just about about shark moves good vc picks are essential as well, those teasm that did well last week vc'd either bont, pendles, slone or even ablett. Most went rocky, fyfe or danger. That is where the extra 200-300 points for teams that got 2, 200 came from and it will continue to be vital going along, if popular captains like fyf or danger stink it up from time to time and other teams vc or capt others who kick arse then that is also how you can climb or plummet in rankings.

      e.g. bont as vc/capt scored 282 points

      versus danger got 130 or fyfe 126 so its 152 and 158 points more respectively just from that one decision.

      I myself had dahl vc into fyfe as i didnt have bont soi had a crap week only because of that decision.

      I agree that shark moves can work, but like people trading in matera or murphy in the past 2 weeks they can also really hurt you as well.

      Good luck with it though, i'm sure you will tell us all about it if it comes off, not so sure we will here much if it doesn't though!!

        kim · 02/05/2017 at 11:59

        haha fyfe only got 124 points so i was actually correct just wrong overall score for him as he only scored 62 last week!

      One Touch Wonder · 02/05/2017 at 12:34

      No. He won't be Elite by year end. I'm talking about Uber Elite Premiums.

        kim · 02/05/2017 at 13:10

        fair enough, so when are you going to enlighten us with your wisdom? Maybe which team they play for maybe so we can have a guess?

    Cr0magn0n · 02/05/2017 at 11:52

    If you claim to be such a visionary put your money where your mouth is and reveal your genius? Of course you could say nothing and avoid embarrassment when it all goes to shit……

    Randomcliche2 · 02/05/2017 at 12:02

    My Shark move trades have been used by injured fools and dud rookies such as Smith, Gawn, Armitage, O'meara, Hibberd jnr, Mounford, Roo (whoops). Wish I had Oliver and Murphy to Shark trade on to real under owned premos.

    Hang, on. Is this your team? http://supercoach.heraldsun.com.au/afl/classic/ot

    If so, you are culling Beams! Please for the love of god say the other is not Sandi.

    Cheers

      One Touch Wonder · 02/05/2017 at 12:43

      The TWO players who will be coming into my team WILL be top 8 midfielder and a top 2 Ruckman for the rest of the year. One is owned by 3.1% and the Other by less than 3%. The players that will be replaced are both owned by more than 50%.

        kim · 02/05/2017 at 13:16

        And yeah if that is actually your team it doesn't matter as you are ranked outside top 100,000 so overall is way, way out of your grasp. Far too many rookies on your field. By this stage of the year you should have 2-3 rookies on field max. All the top teams have max 2 rookies on field none at all in the mids it seems.

          kim · 02/05/2017 at 13:17

          Sorry my bad that was last round rank but 38,000 odd is still 1,000 points off the mark, i am beating you by at least 500 points and i am still ranking outside top 2,000 after poor week last week but still in top 1% overall.

        kim · 02/05/2017 at 13:32

        I certainly hope you aren't meaning mcevoy for the ruck cause you are crazy if you think he will be top 2 ruck. Average player for years, not going to get any better this year either.

        Randomcliche2 · 02/05/2017 at 13:32

        Okay
        1. Sandi (52.9%) into Sauce (3.2%, maybe a few with Nank and the same idea)

        2. Beams (45.1%) hang on, Hmmm…. OMG It's Nank (52.5% and downwards) into Neale (3%), but hang on you said below 3%…. Looks at Ward, Gray, Sidebum and discounts sidey b/c of AT/Pendles/Wells, discounts Ward b/c never gone 110. Hello Robbie Gray? I'd take Neale over Gray, but hey, good luck!.

        Sandi into Sauce
        Nank into Gray via DPP

        Good luck bro, and I've gone from outside 40k'th after about 4/5 weeks to top 1% before, but you've really got to kill the bye rounds.

        Shark moves are super important and thanks for bringing the topic up!

        Randomcliche · 03/05/2017 at 13:19

        So who is it?

    Fan · 02/05/2017 at 19:00

    Welcome back
    Your a great contributor to the community

Sylvester Sloane · 02/05/2017 at 10:36

Would I be correct in saying it's the right time to snap up Heath shaw given his lower than usual price and seeming to.bE finding some better SC form?

Have 240k in the kitty,
Thinking of a Roughead & Pickett trade to H.shaw & black/balic/fisher?

Or should I stay away from heater for now??

    Stanks21 · 02/05/2017 at 10:56

    Good trade. Heath shaw is only going to get better and backman like him can score huge! Especially when he kicks more than handball.

    Finnius123 · 02/05/2017 at 11:00

    Like it.

Sellars1220 · 02/05/2017 at 11:00

Option 1. JOM and Pat Ryder > Ablett and Parsons + 123k
Option 2. JOM and Grundie > Martin and Balic or any other mid bubble boy

I only have 20 trades but JOM needs to go!

Any other options I would love to hear (btw I already have pendles and Bont before anyone tells me to bring them in)

Thoughts?

    Cr0magn0n · 02/05/2017 at 11:53

    I'm thinking you should settle down and hold if you only have 20 trades left!

      Sellars1220 · 02/05/2017 at 12:15

      Yeah I'm thinking of not using a lot more after I make the JOM trade

    Sellars1220 · 02/05/2017 at 14:47

    Will probably keep grundie actually he should improve if mason cox comes out for a bit

    JohndJames · 02/05/2017 at 23:11

    Sellars you have been on the burn a bit with the trades,but sometimes you just have to get your team in order,so hopefully you have by now.Looking at your options I would only trade out JOM,who should have gone last week,the others,without knowing who is in your team are not worth it.

FEARTHEBEARD · 02/05/2017 at 11:10

Community :

Pendles, Bont or Gaz?

Midfield will be complete, currently have : Sloane, Danger, Oliver, Fyfe, JPK, Trealor, Beams

If Trealor or Beams spud up more and I have a trade to burn can obviously flick 1 of them to Bont/Pendles.

Thinking Pendles this week.

Bench has SPP making coin still!

    Finnius123 · 02/05/2017 at 11:23

    Pendlebury

      DavidSA · 01/05/2017 at 15:08

      577k for a 90-120 consistent scoring with the odd 130+ is a steal

    Goat · 02/05/2017 at 11:35

    Pendlebury

    pod · 02/05/2017 at 11:59

    Bont is a MUST have, how did you not know that?

Shagga · 02/05/2017 at 11:13

My weakest line: Who on field, Butler against WBD or Parsons against GCS?

    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 11:21

    Parsons hasn't even been named yet haha

      Shagga · 02/05/2017 at 17:44

      I bet he is.

        Awkward · 02/05/2017 at 19:04

        Haa haa

Tullabased · 02/05/2017 at 11:26

I am following the pack mentality somewhat which I do not normally do.
Beams has been OK for me but now with his BE skyrocketing I am reluctantly trading him to Pendlebury since he is the cheapest for years.
As an Essendon supporter, I should mention to YOU to beware of David Myers. I cannot believe the hysteria of the pack. He is a talented player but is very injury prone. Check his history regarding SC. His highest score has been 123 points. I expect many will jump on him this week @ $134K because I think he will be named after another loss following a stupid four day break between games (Thanks AFL), however, I will be waiting until he has played two games and IF he does ok, goodo. Fingers crossed for him.

    Declan · 02/05/2017 at 11:35

    Essendon and Collingwood supporters love how their clubs play on Anzac Day and parade around like it is THEIR day, both clubs love it and BOTH clubs want to play on Anzac Day so you have to live with having a 5day break, so don't blame AFL.

    Myers has a lot of hype around him, hopefully he stays fit and on the park producing good $$ and SC Points

    JohndJames · 02/05/2017 at 11:42

    You would hope that people would wait till a player had played the two games,no point going early really,you aren't gaining anything,but let's hope Myers does alright since there are not a lot of mid rookies coming through.Not sure you can blame the break between games for your lose Tullabased, Melbourne's advantage was under a day since they played on the Monday night and Essendon the Tuesday,and Collingwood did beat Geelong after the same break between games.

    neil Demons Delight · 02/05/2017 at 12:15

    wise words but remember the dees had the same break playing Monday eve and didn't seem to bother the woods .not the reason bombers lost

      neilDemons Delight · 02/05/2017 at 12:21

      sorry Brownlow boy 60 didn't copy you both are correct in this case . Bombers bad kicking and a few fill ins not up to it are the reason for the loss Dees an OK side better with max and hoges much better

        Tullabased · 02/05/2017 at 17:43

        Boys! I reluctantly concur and it is simply frustration on my behalf plus we aren't quite good enough yet. I shudder if Max was fit and well.

Saundo · 02/05/2017 at 11:54

Otten to Hibberd anyone?

Mystic Mac · 02/05/2017 at 12:33

Butler – Parsons
Otten – Montagna
Thanks for the great service Andy!

Allen · 02/05/2017 at 13:35

With so many teams having the same players I feel the need to try get a pod.. instead of Martin or grundy into the ruck I'm willing to spend a bit more to get in Mumford.. with gws going to be a top 4 team, Mumford is crucial to their success.. I've got a lot of premium players that are coming from losing sides so I feel can benefit from this more than trading in grundy or Martin into the ruck when swapping nank into the forward line..

Thoughts?

    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 15:22

    Like this move and am considering offloading Witts to Mummy before round 9.

DefyingMadness · 02/05/2017 at 14:09

In a bit of a pickle this week community. My trades have gone wrong and my team is in shambles so any advice is appreciated

Laird, Shaw, Rance,
Otten, Marchbank, Newman,
(Hampton, Stewart)

Danger, Tmitch, Adams, Beams
Fyfe, Merret, JFK, Treloar,
(SPP, Partfitt, Barret)

Sandi, Witts
(Strnadica)

Dahl, Nank, Macrae,
Houston, Balic, Butler,
(TT, Eddy)

23 trades left and 92k in the bank

My forward line is pretty weak however there are no premo selections standing out to me.
Not sure if I should be double downgrading or bringing in a Simpson or Pendles type.
Probably bringing in Parsons if he is named

Thanks for any help

    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 15:09

    Only forward line premos who are proven are Lynch and JJK.

    Some good defenders for sure in Simpson, Loyd and Adams (probably more too)

    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 15:10

    Possibly Buddy but do you want to go there right now?

    redherringfc · 02/05/2017 at 21:20

    Trade Parfitt out, pretty sure he's injured. i'd bring in black, but you could go parsons. You could then trade Butler for jjk or roo. i think it's worth putting TT on field, I think he'll improve a bit from his earlier games.

Clarky · 02/05/2017 at 14:36

Who has better JS, EVW or Parsons?

    whatyasmokin · 02/05/2017 at 15:07

    I don't think anyone really knows, I'm going to throw my guess out there and say EVW.

neilDemons Delight · 02/05/2017 at 14:56

Whilst ONETOUCH WONDER has been giving us a much needed comic relief after last week and do we need it was wondering whether the three cheapie rucks can do the job 4 with Pruess until the champ comes backin R17 BIG MAXY.. The three of course are Nank Sandi and Witts Maybe just maybe they contain just what we need.

Henry · 02/05/2017 at 18:14

S. Martin or Grundy?

Noirlust · 02/05/2017 at 18:27

TBH, Black might go out and Parsons/McCarthy might come in, or McCarthy/Stanley.

The Vlad · 03/05/2017 at 08:27

Hey guys, I'm in a bit of a pickle at the moment and just wondering if you have advice on how I should setup for this week.

I've got 24 trades left and $39000 currently in the bank.

Backline: Docherty, Laird, T Adams, Otten, Marchbank, Newman (Hampton, Stewart)
Midfield: Danger, Martin, TMitch, Fyfe, Kennedy, Treloar, Beams, Fisher (Parfitt, Barrett, Miles)
Ruck: Grundy, Sandi (Strnadica)
Forwards: Dahlhaus, Nank, Macrae, WHE, Butler, Houston (Pickett, Eddy)

A lot of my premiums didn't fire up this week but I don't want to be hasty and start trading them out but I'm a bit conflicted on where I should be starting to make my team a bit more solid. I'm thinking Parfitt needs to go and was looking at trading in Balic for him to free up some cash and keep him in the midfield for now as cover as I heard Z Fisher is also injured. With the money I save I can possibly bump Beams up to Pendles but not sure if that's the best move I can make.

Any advice would be very very helpful.

    kim · 03/05/2017 at 14:04

    You need to double downgrade this week mate, parfit out for parsons, and hampton out for mcniece or evw. Next week upgrade butler or houston to a fwd premo or march to a defensive premo. Although you are in big trouble given you dont have any bench rookies in mids playing.

    Actually go parfit for balic then you have a dpp swing with picket and cover fishers 0 and still make a little cash. Still do the butler to parsons. Then upgrade fwd or def next week.

    Do not trade beams to pendles you have far too many other issues especially with so many of your bench rookies not playing, that is going to kill you if they still aren't playing come bye rounds.

      The Vlad · 04/05/2017 at 09:53

      Thanks Kim, yeah I figured in was in a bit of a bad situation but I'll check out what you suggested and hopefully I'll knock off my opponent this week. Was doing ok until the last 2 weeks where I got myself in a bit of a rut so hopefully I can manage.

      Cheers!

Sellars1226 · 04/05/2017 at 12:55

Time for Fyfe to go?
Thinking of trading JOM and Fyfe for
1. Sloane + Balic
2. Ablett and Balic
