Heroes-Villians-Damned

Annus horribilis – Mark II.

Many of us experienced a severe case of déjà vu on the weekend as we were hit by the worse back-to-back weeks of SuperCoach in recent memory.

In what was a round of upsets in the AFL, there were plenty of coaches out there who would have been severely upset by their SC team’s poor score.

The majority of our premium selections just aren’t getting it done at the moment with the likes of Sloane, Grundy, Treloar, JPK, Sandilands, Parker, Higgins, Gray and Wines all failing miserably.

Of popular top end players many coaches have, only Franklin, Rockliff and Bontempelli delivered any real scores of substance.

Again it appears as though 2000 was par, with many, including myself, failing to even reach that mark this week.  

The Heroes

Jarrad Waite (190 SC) is an enigma in every sense of the word. However, for all his injury, form and suspension issues, I’ll give him this: when he’s on, boy is he on. Absolutely slaughtered Adelaide and was kicking snags from all parts of the field. Waite was sitting on a staggering 86 SC at quarter time and finished with 23 possessions, 8 marks, 6 tackles and 6.2.

You have got to love the stats of Lance Franklin (160 SC) on Sunday. He single-handedly demolished Brisbane with 16 kicks, 9 marks and no handballs to finish with 8.4. It was the sort of performance his owners had been waiting for. Team-mate Zak Jones (143 SC) entered the conversation as a possible top 8 defender, finishing with 27 touches and a goal. He is now averaging 96 SC after starting off the year at around 300K.

Tom Rockliff (148 SC) and Marcus Bontempelli (128 SC) were the only 2 popular premo midfielders to fire on the weekend. It was the old Rocky special (32 touches, 11 tackles and 2.1) as he dominated in a losing team and without Dayne Beams by his side, while the Bont (27 possessions, 9 tackles and 1.1) was instrumental in helping get the Dogs over the line.

It was thought the return of Nat Fyfe would have a negative impact on the output of Lachie Neale (147 SC), but in actual fact, the opposite has happened. Neale actually looks like he is stealing some of the Teen Wolf’s points!  The same goes with Zach Merrett (133 SC) – the return of the banned Bombers doesn’t appear to be hurting his scoring capacity at all. These two young guns with low % ownerships are currently outperforming most of their more popular midfield counterparts.

Elliott Yeo (125 SC) is shaping up as the real deal this season without another excellent performance. I can legit see him being a top 6 forward if he keeps this momentum up. Big men Patrick Ryder (139 SC) and Matt Kruezer (128 SC) are staking their claims to be the answers to many coaches’ current ruck issues.

By jeez, have Carlton found one in Sam Petrevski-Seton (131 SC). The kid can seriously play. Was touted as a potential number 1 selection and is showing why. Had 21 touches, kicked 2.1 and was one of the main reasons Carlton were able to upset Collingwood.

Big men Charlie Dixon (135 SC), Ben Reid (130 SC) and Scott Thompson (123 SC) enjoyed sound matches for their respective sides, while other midfielders to crack the magical 120-mark this week were Ben Cunnington (129 SC), Jack Viney (127 SC), Lachie Hunter (126 SC), Jack Steven (120 SC) and Aaron Hall (120 SC).

The Villains

All good things must come to an end. The likes of Rory Sloane (80 SC), Shane Mumford (67 SC) and Robbie Gray (30 SC) were all in blistering form coming into this round but that was abruptly halted. Grey was killed by Brad Shepherd, Sloane was one of many Crows down on form in their shock loss, while the big Mummy couldn’t capitalise on his match up with Billy Longer.  

Shaun Higgins (72 SC) could not fire despite his side’s massive win and neither could St Kilda trio Jack Steele (79 SC), Leigh Montagna (74 SC) and Nick Riewoldt (65 SC).

Adam Treloar (73 SC) is firming as one of the worst premo picks of the year if he keeps this sort of form up. The patience of many coaches, including myself, is running incredibly thin. The inclusion of Mason Cox is absolutely killing the output of Brodie Grundy (58 SC), while Jeremy Howe (60 SC) was another Pie to disappoint.

After a strong start to the season, Ollie Wines (70 SC) has come back to earth in recent weeks, while there is clearly something wrong with Swans pair Josh Kennedy (77 SC) and Luke Parker (83 SC). They both looked a shadow of their former selves and could not fire despite Sydney’s break through victory.

Melbourne’s Michael Hibberd (56 SC) looks to have run out of steam already. He looked the goods at quarter time, but faded as the game went on to finish with a disappointing score. Aaron Sandilands (77 SC) had a down match but his form has been solid so far this season and he should bounce back next week.

The Redeemers

North haven’t won many games this season, coinciding with the drop in form of Todd Goldstein (111 SC). But the statistics tell us that when they win, Goldy fires. Their huge upset victory over the Crows was no exception. Could this be a turning point for the Kangas’ season and in turn their star ruckman’s SC year?

Speaking of ruckman, Adelaide’s Sam Jacobs (118 SC) has certainly flown under the radar this season. He’s registered 4 tons in 7 games and is averaging 96. With Gawn going down and Grundy turning rubbish in the past few weeks, has the big Sauce suddenly emerged as a ruck saviour?

Patrick Dangerfield (110 SC) hasn’t been himself since he copped a Jarryd Roughead knee to the ribs in Round 4. Rumour has it he’s been playing with a protective guard over the area ever since. Geelong lost its second game in a row on Saturday night and it wasn’t quite the Danger of old yet, but the signs were good. Expect a massive game from him in the coming weeks.

Kudos to those who held Hawks captain Jarryd Roughead (115 SC). Four goals helped boost his total as he assisted his side to their second victory of the season. The same goes for Gold Coast’s David Swallow (96 SC), who was impressive in his side’s upset win over Geelong.

The Prodigies

Caleb Marchbank (108 SC) enjoyed an excellent match for Carlton and demonstrated we can hold him for a few more weeks yet, while fellow Blues defender Tom Williamson (48 SC) was a little quieter after a strong start in his first 3 games.

Ever since Josh Jenkins has come back into the side the output of Adelaide’s Andy Otten (69 SC) has dwindled. Still produced a respectable score, though, unlike many of his team-mates. Expensive options Tim Taranto (66 SC) and Will Hoskin-Elliott (65 SC) were so-so.

Kurt Mutimer (58 SC) looked an improved player for the Eagles in his second match and should hold his spot in the side next week, where he will be on the bubble. Keep an eye on Gold Coast’s Brad Scheer (45 SC) in his second match next week, as he didn’t look out of place and could be a nice midfield downgrade at 117K.

Richmond’s Ivan Soldo (62 SC) was solid on debut for the Tigers, but doubt remains as to whether he can hold his position in the side when Toby Nankervis returns. Team-mate Todd Elton (62 SC) produced the best game of his short career but it wasn’t enough to get Richmond over the line.

Ironically, two of the most popular rookie trade-ins this week – Ed Vickers-Williss (35 SC) and James Parsons (19 SC) – were horrible. Due to the selection carnage earlier in the week, most coaches would have them on their fields as well. The other common bubble boy traded in, Aaron Black (69 SC), fared much better.

Along with Black, Swans youngster Lewis Melican (67 SC) was the best-performed rookie on the bubble this week, while team-mates Will Hayward (55 SC) and Oliver Florent (33 SC) did not overly excite.

Lion Jake Barrett (60 SC) helped many coaches out with a solid performance as a replacement for Dayne Beams, while fellow Lions Huge McCluggage (65 SC) and Jarrod Berry (60 SC) are improving with every match.

Hawk Blake Hardwick (74 SC) has been a sound buy for his owners so far, but the same can’t be said for Demon Mitch Hannan (31 SC), who probably won’t keep his place in the side for much longer.

The Damned

The likes of Curtly Hampton (47 SC), Dan Butler (58 SC), Dan Houston (58 SC) and Sam Powell-Pepper (60 SC) have been good servants to our teams, but look to have almost reached their cash growth potential. It may well be a case of damned if you do and damned if you don’t when it comes to offloading these players. Murphy’s Law suggests the minute we trade them out they will pump out an 80 to ensure they have a little more money-making generation in them yet. But hold them and they could keep producing the same mediocre scores and go backwards.

 

How did you go this week, Community?

Jack Steele hardly a villain 1pt away from 80, avg of 90
I want to bring in Merrett and have been waiting for him to bottom out which is now. The guy is an absolute gun and looking at how many times he gets the ball with a good 75+ % DE he goes large

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 12:56

    Agree David. Steele is going better than plenty of other spud so called premos. He's looking like a last upgrade. If at all

      neilDemons Delight · 08/05/2017 at 13:48

      think you're right Pies Steele and Oliver both last Steele could even come in

FEARTHEBEARD · 08/05/2017 at 11:52

Anyone got the B/Es for Butler, Houston, SPP, Otten, Hampton???

FEARTHEBEARD · 08/05/2017 at 11:53

Also b/es on Rocky & Adams & Bont?

LoganJosh7 · 08/05/2017 at 11:57

I KEPT ROUGHHEAD!!!

but also traded in hibbard and parsons so worst round ever 🙁

    DavidSA · 08/05/2017 at 12:02

    Parsons hurt a lot of us
    I think Hibberd by score would have hurt but paying 400k for a potential top 10 defender is fine. He got plenteous of ball but all them clangers!!

      DavidSA · 08/05/2017 at 12:03

      Plenty*

        Kev · 08/05/2017 at 12:23

        I think he had 4 possessions in the second half. Went missing

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 12:20

    Hibbo had 27 touches but his 5 clangers & 2 frees against killed his score. And I've noticed champion are merciless on you if you give away a free kick that leads to a goal. And Hibbo did that. I saw Tom Stewart lose 16 points from his score from doing that a few weeks ago

      Just Jeff · 08/05/2017 at 13:08

      Yep I've noticed that too Pieman. They have definitely tweaked under the hood of the supercoach scoring system big time in the offseason. Players who commit turnovers are getting mega punished, more so than in previous seasons. It's over the top in my view and can lead to some very skewed scores.

        INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 13:42

        I've noticed it Jeff. It's really impacting rookie scores as well as premiums. The first player they went after was Treloar. He's the best indicator of how champion data are assessing players now. You may have noticed Fyfe's scoring has dropped off from beast numbers. Someone was asking about Pittard. Same problem. Had plenty of it chopped it up & got punished. I know I need to pick blokes that can use it well. Hence why Bont is the CD lovechild, his use of the pill is awesome

          DavidSA · 08/05/2017 at 15:15

          Awesome analysis and have been thinking about this on similar levels.
          Next year I will be looking real hard on players DE % 1st, kicking to hand ball ratio atleast 55/45 2nd, finally the avg disposals atleast 22 a game 3rd.

          My new top 3 vital statistics for next year

            TRIGGER HAPPY · 08/05/2017 at 15:38

            hence why doc's price has barely moved.

            great DE loves to kick the pill, hits a target and racks em up off the back line.

              Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 17:34

              Doch loves to kick it backwards even if there's a clear forward option. Supercoach gold. Maybe not so good for the team

          Champion Analist · 08/05/2017 at 16:08

          The Trelor Rule!!!

          LoganJosh7 · 08/05/2017 at 16:48

          youre actually no wrong on that count as well. normally just the huge contested ball numbers would see danger and fyfey like you said getting huge numbers (see adelaide freo game two years back)
          – but now both players have dropped off completely. Efficiency is king!! RIP contested.

    Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 17:32

    I'm glad Beams got injured because otherwise I would've traded him

DavidSA · 08/05/2017 at 12:00

out of the 4 rookies going backwards in price
SPP, Butler I will be keeping, reckon they both have another big score in them.
Houston and Hampton I can't see anything but bleeding cash.

Craig · 08/05/2017 at 12:01

Hampton to mcniece and then otten to Shaw? Thoughts

    LoganJosh7 · 08/05/2017 at 12:07

    hampton has defs go to go – time is ripe! oten is a hold for another week or so for me. got better trade options round the ground 🙂

      NutSack · 08/05/2017 at 20:21

      ottens BE is 83. time to go

    FEARTHEBEARD · 08/05/2017 at 12:07

    Adams & McNiece for me for the same 2!

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 12:12

    Not sure about McNeice. Just don't need another rookie to play his 3rd & disappear with the byes coming up. Seems to be a frequent problem. And Zac Williams is impacting Shaw. I'm not certain he's a must have

      FCAbel · 08/05/2017 at 17:12

      If theyplay him this week after resting him I feel this offers a degree of safety for a few weeks.

    TheGerman · 08/05/2017 at 12:49

    Would prefer Adams, if you don't have him. Or Jones from Sydney.

    Jason · 08/05/2017 at 12:58

    If he comes straight back in this week then he truly was rested which should be a thumbs up for his short term job security. Mutimer is the only other bubble boy option this week and not sure his job security is any better.

      Loop · 08/05/2017 at 13:08

      I think that if Duggan is fit Mutimer might go.

        INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 13:22

        I was thinking the same thing Loop. Duggan is listed as a test

          Loop · 09/05/2017 at 06:26

          I read that Duggan was supposed to play last week but wasnt quite right so Hutchings came in. Maybe Mutimer will last until Cripps comes back. Cripps is out for six weeks. I'm hoping that Lamb will get a chance to play.

INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 12:05

Rocket said this morning he won't be taking any players with Asthma or respiratory problems to China. The pollution over there is horrendous. Wonder who those players are

    Kev · 08/05/2017 at 12:25

    Struggling to see the point of this China match. Preseason, sure. But what's the end goal here? Waste of time/money

      INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 12:54

      Agree Kev. It's just a promo for another sport for the Chinese to gamble on. It's as simple as that

      Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 17:36

      Agree. It's a waste of a bye too if they're playing harder than usual in the conditions and have no rest. It should count towards the premiership

      Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 19:35

      Played in 31 degree heat with high humidity, a sandstorm predicted and smog as well. I'm with you especially with the teams going over there too.

      Bells E Bubb · 08/05/2017 at 19:38

      The Chinese gambling market is the end goal.
      Not one other thing but that.
      Imagine the profits to be made off the misery of millions addicted to gambling instead of thousands if we can get them interested in it.

      NutSack · 08/05/2017 at 20:28

      Its called pandering to the immigrant nations. In case you havent heard America will be a South Asian majority nation in 2075 and Melbourne Australia will be a non-white majority city in 2030. Melbournes population is set to grow by 3.5 million in the next 15 years with ALL POPULATION increase from African and South Eastern immigrants. Basically the white birth rate is negative across the planet so if Australia cant get Asians to the footy then Aussie Rules will platue in its growth. Social demographics experts have declarted that if Africans and Asians do not increase Australias population then the country is doomed. LOL-IRONIC HEY??? Basically there is as many white people on Earth now as there will ever be. The planet is slowly returning to its USELESS third world beginnings but LONG LIVE AFL 🙂

        INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 20:36

        Awesome insight NutSack. From what I see around Melbourne I can't argue with you

        Moustachio · 09/05/2017 at 10:08

        Damn, how can we change this situation? White is clearly superior to the other races, this is a travesty.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 08/05/2017 at 12:42

      Perth Dave · 09/05/2017 at 01:48

      Hope the Chad doesn't play. Will keep his price down and prime for picking up before round 10.

      Daniel Z · 09/05/2017 at 10:40

      Knowing our luck this year, he'd bang out a ton and then get lost on the way back to the airport and be stuck in China.

    Russty_ · 09/05/2017 at 01:55

    Interesting how the comments relating to Nutsack being a bigoted racist have been removed..yet his comment still remains, not judging anyone, but ..interesting 🙂

      Moustachio · 09/05/2017 at 10:09

      I noted this also Russty. I'm pretty disappointed in old Jock.

Rivo · 08/05/2017 at 12:06

Another steaming turd performance sub 2000. I am at a loss what to do. 21 trades and $308k cash, current team…

D: Doc, Laird, Shaw, Otten, Marchbank, Hampton (Stewart, EVW);
M: Danger, Pendles, Hanners, Fyfe, Treloar, JPK, M.Crouch, SPP (Barrett, Pickett, Fisher);
R: Martin, Sandi (Strnadica);
F: Dahl, Nank, Buddy, Houston, Butler, Balic (Parsons, Eddy).

Got some serious underperforming premo and plump rookies.

What is the priority here? Initial thinking…

1. Houston or Butler to Macrae or Yeo
2. Hampton or Otten to Adams
3. SPP to Rocky
4. SPP to Bont, rookie to Myers, other.
5. Otten & Houston to Simpson & Heeney…

HELP!!!!!

    Choice · 08/05/2017 at 12:22

    I like 5

      Rabbits16 · 08/05/2017 at 12:55

      yeh agreed no 5

    TheGerman · 08/05/2017 at 12:25

    Just went to Yeo last week, decided that I'd trust my instinct and he's having a breakout year. Even if his impact is low after the byes and only gets 80 or so, he's my F5 or F6 in my calculations at the end of the season. I'd take 85+ from him at the back end as a last used defender.

    Anything above that and he's a must to have, especially being DPP.

    I do think Otten needs to go very soon. His BE is high for him in which I doubt he'll get to this week. Simpson is on a bit of a run, as well as Sydney's Zak Jones. Adams is placed around his starting price, so I think it depends what do you need. You already have Doc, so perhaps save a bit and pick up either Simpson or Jones for now and look at upgrading Marchbank to Adams in a few weeks when Marchbank's BE is unachievable.

      TheGerman · 08/05/2017 at 12:26

      Sorry last placed Forward for Yeo!

        Rivo · 08/05/2017 at 12:57

        Thanks TheGerman.
        Yeo is a good get though Macrae looks safer. Are you advocating Option 5 over that though? Or just in Yeo only?

      ....K · 08/05/2017 at 13:24

      …K

    Lazza · 08/05/2017 at 16:20

    I'd go option 2… Adams is a must have and Hampton and Otten both have 90+ BE …. of the two, Otten most likely to get closer to his BE. That leaves you only 1 Premo to get in both the guts and up back.

    All the other Options presents a problem for R11 with the Doggies, Swans, Bris and Carlton all having a Bye – which would take out Dahl, Bont/Macrae/Rocky, JPK, Hanners, Martin, Doc, Simpson/Heeney, and Marchbank, Will rip the core out of your team.

      Rivo · 08/05/2017 at 16:30

      Thanks Lazza. Don't mind it, maybe Hampton to Adams, and save the extra trade.

    Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 17:38

    Neither Hampton or often will hit their break evens so fix that up

      Rivo · 08/05/2017 at 17:45

      Could it then be Hampton to Adams & Otten to Hibberd (Melb) or hold the Otten trade for later?

    Nick · 08/05/2017 at 18:24

    Heeney is a must I think and still cheap so number 5 is by far the best option.

    Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 19:42

    Hampton and Ottens with a breakeven of 91 should be the first two to go. Adams is a great choice. SPP plenty of money to make yet with a BE of 11. Houston is almost at the bubble with a BE of 63.

      Dean · 08/05/2017 at 22:13

      This year's bye structure is a serious pain in the arse. Is it worth trading these players out for premo's now or wait.

      I'm hoping to trade some of these players to Rookies to generate cash come the buy rounds.

      Rivo · 09/05/2017 at 09:22

      A left field thought and maybe a cardinal sin –
      Sideways premo trade….

      Treloar & Otten to Bont & Adams? Leaves $63k cash to deal with remaining rooks pre byes.

Tom · 08/05/2017 at 12:12

Why is PIttard's SC scores so much less then he's AF?

    Harley · 08/05/2017 at 12:24

    AF doesn't account for turnovers etc!

    Pittard had 5 turnovers in the first quarter from memory. That's a lot of points lost.

    ahole · 08/05/2017 at 12:53

    Another clown whining about a SC score for the gazillionth time. If you don't like the scoring system buster then go play Dream Team instead and quit your b1tching.

      Window clean · 08/05/2017 at 14:12

      Yes do that because DT is a much better game than SC where losers who have nothing to do all weekend watch/listen to footy games. No wonder SC is dying.
      DT is set and forget

      redherringfc · 08/05/2017 at 18:25

      It's a bit harsh, ahole.

      He asked a question, because he didn't know something.

      What do you do when you don't know something?

      Me personally, I just go about my business in ignorant bliss and call people names to make myself feel better.

    Kev · 08/05/2017 at 13:31

    Doesn't get involved in the contested stuff, Tom. Gaff is similar. CD don't give a stuff if you can find space

DefyingMadness · 08/05/2017 at 12:20

Beams and Houston to Yeo and Heeney? This would mean keeping Otten and Hampton for another week.

    Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 18:32

    I reckon Yeo and Heeney could really boost your team Madness.

    NoLanguage · 08/05/2017 at 18:44

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 08/05/2017 at 12:36

    Concussed.
    Waite smashed him into the turf (may be looked at) in 2nd qtr.
    Went off didn't return.

    Greg · 08/05/2017 at 12:46

    Concussed

    Cam_H · 08/05/2017 at 19:03

    Concussed but reasonably likely to play this week despite the general policy of a week off. Reported by Mark Ricciuto to have had no side-effects as a consequence of the tackle.

What defender do I bring in got 550k to spend

    TheGerman · 08/05/2017 at 12:48

    Really like the value of Zak Jones. On fire at the moment

    LJB · 08/05/2017 at 12:50

    If you haven't got one of shaw or Simpson grab them

    Lazza · 08/05/2017 at 16:25

    Would help if we knew your back-line first … plenty of options at that price …
    Must have – Adams ($543k),
    Others – ZakW ($503K), ZakJ ($462K), Simpson ($515K), Lloyd ($488K)

      Dutchy · 08/05/2017 at 17:02

      What about Roberton

    redherringfc · 08/05/2017 at 18:30

    If you don't have Adams, then Adams.

    Next preference is Adams,

    followed by Adams.

Adrian · 08/05/2017 at 12:36

Rookie question, when the byes happen, does the 0 impact on the players price?

    TheGerman · 08/05/2017 at 12:47

    If they aren't named, no. If they are named and are injured in the first minute with a score of zero, then yes.

    LJB · 08/05/2017 at 12:51

    Nope, it's as if they didn't play

Johnny · 08/05/2017 at 12:37

Murphy and Kelly > Neale and Sloane 🙂

    Don't Blush Baby · 08/05/2017 at 12:46

    Sloanes BE is 166k ,wait a week or maybe even 2 = Bargain

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 13:32

    New to the game Johnny?

      Dutchy · 08/05/2017 at 17:04

      Surely he's stating he's picks are doing better

      randomcliche · 09/05/2017 at 11:00

      #comelately ROLF! N1 INPieman, best call this week, thus far.

    Lachy · 08/05/2017 at 17:55

    bad bad bad trades

TRIGGER HAPPY · 08/05/2017 at 12:39

Carl
I think know you should rename this article
"The usual suspects"
Crapo under performing Premos and even crappier turd dropping rookies with only a couple of exceptions.

Winter · 08/05/2017 at 12:42

Is Macrae overpriced at 551k?
Should I bring him in or wait for him to go back down in price…

    TheGerman · 08/05/2017 at 12:46

    Overpriced for mine. Do you have Yeo? Heeney? Dare I say Franklin?

      Winter · 08/05/2017 at 12:54

      Atm my fwds are Dahl, JJK & Buddy
      Not sure if I trust Yeo or Heeney yet
      Next fwd on my list is N. Roo

        Lazza · 08/05/2017 at 16:26

        Roo will slide for some time … his knee is rooted..

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 08/05/2017 at 12:52

    bloody consistent

    92,98,108,107,121,102,117

    not sure where that bad game is gonna come from
    if you want a consistent scorer around 100 he is your man.

      Winter · 08/05/2017 at 12:55

      Cheers Trigger, seems well worth it to me

    Derek · 08/05/2017 at 18:24

    He was on 22sc at half time last week. Scored 97sc in second half.

    redherringfc · 08/05/2017 at 18:35

    Not really, he is very consistent, which means his price won't change much.
    For me, he is a must, but when it suits me because there are no good value picks.

    SF4 · 08/05/2017 at 19:13

    No, he is very much worth it. Lowest score of 90 odd.

Andi · 08/05/2017 at 12:43

Should I send Zaharkis to the chopping block? Playing draft but he has been under performing all season

Richoman · 08/05/2017 at 12:47

What on earth happened to the texan? 24pts! (And how is he not a villain?)

    Karma Bus · 08/05/2017 at 12:54

    What the hell are you doing with him? Hasn't been SuperCoach relevant since about 2013.

      Winter · 08/05/2017 at 13:02

      Lol what. He's scored 91, 111, 142, 92, 85 before the 24, seems pretty relevant to me and that's without even pointing out that he's a fwd in the premiership favourite team

        James · 08/05/2017 at 13:12

        Both he and Eddie Betts often go on purple patches each season to suck plenty in and then they invariably turn back into a spud once they've latched on to a number of fantasy sides. The more savy coaches ignore them and focus on getting in midfielders disguised as forwards like Macrae, Dahl, Wingard and Heeney.

        Moustachio · 09/05/2017 at 10:11

        Yeah, nah. Not SC relevant mate.

    jez_m · 08/05/2017 at 16:02

    He's your classic key forward unfortunately. Will pump out some massive scores but also throw in some shockers. They play Melbourne at home this week so he should bounce back.

Paul · 08/05/2017 at 12:52

Hi can only do 1 upgrade this week. Hampton to go i can bring in any of the following players
1: simmo
2: Docherty
3: rocky
4: bont
Thoughts please.

    Rabbits16 · 08/05/2017 at 13:01

    Simpson good value but probab;y just lock in Bont and smile. im looking to pick bont up next week and add simpson in later for otten

      Paul · 08/05/2017 at 13:50

      Thanks rabbits

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 13:28

    All nice options. But Bont is the stand out

      Paul · 08/05/2017 at 13:51

      Thanks pieman

    Lazza · 08/05/2017 at 16:28

    2 or 4 … no brainer…

SirSamuel016 · 08/05/2017 at 13:16

I've got Otten, Hampton, Butler, Petrevski-Seton and SPP all ripe for the chop this week. However, I think I might only get rid of Hampton this week. While it's not too good a trade, I'm considering going Treloar to Adams, then trading Hampton out, swining Adams into the backline and bringing in Pendles.

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 13:57

    Pendles wife is 38 weeks pregnant & about to burst. He's putting the birth ahead of footy (disgusting) & if she goes into labour on the weekend he's not playing. He said if she goes into labour during the game he will leave immediately. So can that idea. But I like the creativity of that idea

      SirSamuel016 · 08/05/2017 at 14:15

      Ah, thanks for the info. I'll have to dwell on whether I should trade Treloar some more, as while I know I should really hold my premiums he's not turning his form around.

        JohndJames · 08/05/2017 at 15:34

        I like your idea of getting rid of Treloar,SirSamuel,Adams is a must,brought him in after the second round.You could always do a strait swap of Treloar to Adams,then once you know what mid you want to bring in,move Adams to Def for Hampton.Treloar will be getting traded out of ''Black Flag'',round seven was his last chance,thinking of bringing in Yeo like the mid/fwd so later on I can move him into the fwds at the first opportunity.

          SirSamuel016 · 08/05/2017 at 15:42

          Yeah, Adams seems really solid and would be great to have in my team. Currently looking at Treloar and Hampton for Adams and Bont/Rocky

            JohndJames · 08/05/2017 at 16:00

            That's a solid plan,I brought in Bont same time as Adams,been my best two trades so far.

          Cogla13 · 08/05/2017 at 16:57

          If you are going to sideways trade a premium then do it during the bye rounds. Trade Treloar before round 13 bye.

      OldOcker · 08/05/2017 at 15:21

      Very good point INP. I had planned to bring in Pendles and Shaw this week for Hampton and Otten.
      I must rethink my plans now, Not sure that Shaw is a must have so to speak this year but is at least showing consistency,
      Pendles is a cheap ATM but could get even cheaper if he walks out half way through a game.
      Back to drawing board and research.

    Westy · 08/05/2017 at 15:08

    SPS should be a hold.

      SirSamuel016 · 08/05/2017 at 15:14

      Yeah, I checked his B/E and it's -14 so I'm defs holding him as he can make some more cash. Same with SPP who's got a BE of 11 and should make that. It's Butler, Hampton and Otten that are the bigger concerns.

INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 13:27

Braydon Pruess on the weekend had 64 Hit outs 16 disposals & 7 marks. FFS Brad Scott get him back in!!! He Bloody Gun

    Captain Risky · 08/05/2017 at 13:52

    Agreed, in time for Witts bye would be perfect.

    Newman also had another 30 disposal game.. Both will probably be ignored again.

      INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 14:10

      I really need cover for Witts in round 9 as well risky! Newman is gone. He won't be back anytime soon. Would need heaps of injuries

        Brian · 08/05/2017 at 14:27

        Can we really afford to trade out a rookie who will definitely make money whenever he plays? I don't think we can. If there were good rookies on the bubble then maybe. But there is not.

          randomcliche · 09/05/2017 at 11:05

          Already traded Eddy and before their most recent games, Newman and Barrett. You win some and lose some. If a likely rookie comes along, I hit non-playing ones on the head.

        Captain Risky · 08/05/2017 at 14:29

        I will need to trade Pruess out by round 9 if he doesn't play.. time is running out !!
        I have Cameron on Fwd bench doing nothing, so Preuss out, Cameron onto bench with DPP and that will allow me to swing Nank Fwd.

        Agree reluctantly about Newman. It's either him and Hampton or Treloar & Hampton out this week for me, depending on team selections…

        Harry H · 08/05/2017 at 16:42

        Absolutely the same. Would love to hold Witts over the byes considering his scoring has been consistently good. Need Preuss to play round 9 though. Newman is killing me. Played 1 short in def last week with him and Stewart out. I may need to hold onto Otten and Hampton (even though they'll probably leak money soon) rather than cop a donut.

      Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 19:50

      Newman and Preuss coming in would be orgasmic!

    neilDemons Delight · 08/05/2017 at 14:05

    Can he be subbed to the dees Pruess would get us to finals

      INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 14:12

      I imagine if they had mid season trading Neil that Preuss would be worth a fortune. He is a beast

        Northernsoul74 · 08/05/2017 at 14:40

        I know the Dogs would love him.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 08/05/2017 at 14:25

    Goldy had his best game for the year last week.
    Can't see pruess getting a gig unless Waite gets time they may try him fwd.
    Though with buddy and Co fwd might bring in more speed rather than brute force.
    Mid season Draft.
    Have most teams putting up their hand.
    He is a beast.

      Brett · 08/05/2017 at 14:28

      Exactly Trigger. With North winning two in a row it would be madness for Scott to change the ruck dynamic with Goldy playing so well. Those with Preuss will just have to bite on the big one I'm afraid.

        INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 14:46

        True Brett unfortunately. One of Ben Brown or Waite would have to be out for Preuss to get a chance

          Moustachio · 09/05/2017 at 10:14

          Brown injured his should on weekend, Waite offered a one match suspension. :))))))

            Captain Risky · 09/05/2017 at 12:05

            Browns OK apparently. Daw is returning back into the VFL side this week though, not sure if that will mean anything?

    Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 19:51

    The only way Preuss will get a game is when people dump him. Hurry up peeps.

Andrew · 08/05/2017 at 13:30

Not sure what to do this week and looks like planning won't really be able to happen until team selection on Thursday, particularly with what happens to my defenders.

Hampton's B/E has thrown a spanner into the works as I've also been unable to punt JOM due to issues elsewhere, combined with having Beams I need to make some changes.

Ideally I want to get Rocky in this week, thinking of committing the cardinal sin and going JOM to Myers pre-bubble to free up $185k and then going Beams to Rocky, leaving me with $88k for future upgrades. Can't do much with Hampton other than perhaps going him to Berry and treating it as an expensive rookie, which frees up the cash to get Rocky from Beams again, but leaves me with a JOM issue again…

    Cam_H · 08/05/2017 at 19:21

    You're not alone Andrew.
    For what it's worth I'm very likely to go JOM to Jack Steven because I'm struggling to have belief in too many other fallen premo's that I don't have other than Hannebery … I seem to have about six other 'fallen premo's already'.
    I'd rather take a $10,000 hit this week with Hampton (who I actually think is still capable of going bigger) than another week with Jägerbomb.

HallyMate · 08/05/2017 at 13:30

Rance or Tuohy? Desperately short of round 12 bye players

    DavidSA · 08/05/2017 at 13:49

    Rance only needs to run the banner for a cool 75
    One touch and a intercept Mark sees him ton up ^^

      Miser · 08/05/2017 at 14:15

      You obviously never played footy.

        DavidSA · 08/05/2017 at 15:10

        7 seasons for Golden grove, played wing, rover and left fwd pocket. Kicked over 60 career goals ^^
        But yeah was just a light hearted reply welcome

          Occa · 08/05/2017 at 15:33

          I agree with Miser. Rance is so well respected and some commentators believe he is the best defender. Does heaps of 1%ers that get little/no SC points.
          There are better SC defenders.

            whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 16:55

            He does heaps of little 1% that do score SC points, not to mention knows when to mark, and when to spoil. Contested/intercept marks are worth a fortune. Rance is awesome for SC. Now that he has brisbane and Carlton out of the way, he will score better and is great value.

            And yes he probably is the best defender in the league.

      Babo · 08/05/2017 at 20:43

      I think he gets a lazy 50SC for doing his hair.

    finnigin · 08/05/2017 at 18:26

    been waiting for rance to run into form, bit of a blockhead but he is now ready and primed

    Derek · 08/05/2017 at 18:54

    Rance still in my best 8

    Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 19:53

    Think Rance is worth a look if he gets plenty of disposals. However I think with so many other tasty possibilities I will pass on him this year despite how cheap he is.

      whatyousmokin · 08/05/2017 at 20:28

      He only needs 15-20 touches for a ton sometimes.

    Joe. · 09/05/2017 at 13:26

    I think it has to be Rance.

    Round 1 he had 9 disposals and scored 99 points.

liam · 08/05/2017 at 13:39

who do i downgrade hampton too??

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 13:52

    Only options really are Berry or McNeice if he plays. If you can upgrade him it's a better option

Van · 08/05/2017 at 13:41

Which Sydney player is the better pick, J.Lloyd or Z.Jones

    Paul · 08/05/2017 at 13:52

    Jones for me. So hard at the ball.

    Leeds17 · 08/05/2017 at 18:16

    I think Now McVeigh is back and they have more options down back in general Jones' 90+ scores should continue IMO,

Andrew · 08/05/2017 at 13:43

270k in the bank
Otten to Lloyd or
Spp to Cripps
Backline is struggling atm so am thinking the Otten trade

    SF4 · 08/05/2017 at 19:07

    Otten to Lloyd.
    SPP still has a low breakeven so we can wait a week or two until we offload him.

TBone · 08/05/2017 at 13:44

Already have Laird, Shaw and Rance, need to upgrade Hampton this week. Can go any defender other than Doc and Adams. Who is most likely to be a top 6 defender that I can pick up?

    Paul · 08/05/2017 at 13:53

    Simmo

    Stanks21 · 08/05/2017 at 13:56

    Roberton is a solid pick

    Harry H · 08/05/2017 at 16:43

    Hurley well worth consideration

    Derek · 08/05/2017 at 18:56

    Simmo

Bob · 08/05/2017 at 13:46

Buddy Franklin or Heeney for Petracca?

    Liam · 08/05/2017 at 15:09

    Heeney – take the player who is going to get more ball consistently

    LoganJosh7 · 08/05/2017 at 15:45

    heeney more consitant but buddy has the big scores. tough one.

    i guess whoever you think will be a top 6 forward by the end of the year?

Ben · 08/05/2017 at 13:50

Hampton and Otten out! Looking at bringing in Pendlebury, Bont or Yeo? Can only afford to bring in one. All pretty good value at the moment

    Holty · 08/05/2017 at 15:13

    I assume u have a dpp in the mids to allow one of the trades. Who will u bring in with ur 2nd trade though? Not much to select from rookie wise back there.
    I have same problem but dont have dpp in the mids so cant bring in a mid which sux

      Ben · 08/05/2017 at 16:08

      Last round I traded Beams to Simpson by moving Adams to mids. So this round I'll move Adams back and bring in a mid or even a forward (dpp).

      Rookie selection I'm not sure yet, have to wait to see who's playing. Maybe McNiece in def or Mutimer in mids with dpp (I also have McGrath in mids who I can move back to def if needed).

        Holty · 08/05/2017 at 16:31

        U are set then. In this case, i think u would be silly not to trade in Pendles at his price.

          FizzEm · 08/05/2017 at 16:41

          hold off on pendles… his wife is about to pop if she does this week he has said he will not play… therefore u can get him the following week without his price rising . im gettin bont this week and pendles next

            Holty · 08/05/2017 at 16:48

            Cheers mate.

    Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 19:54

    Bont a must have

Stanks21 · 08/05/2017 at 13:51

Hi Community,

Had a horrible week with Nank/Greene out and Newman not playing. First game under 2000 for the year.

Team as It stands is:

Laird. Tuohy, Roberton
Shaw, Adams, Newman
(VW and Stewart)

Fyfe, Oliver, Kennedy, Dalhaus,
Zorko, Pendlebery, Powell Pepper, Taranto
(Fisher, Barrett, Hibberd)

Marting, Nankervis

Yeo, Franklin, Greene
Steele, Balic, Parsons
(Hayward, Eddy)

281,200 in bank
19 trades left

Thinking of trading down powell pepper or Taranto.
Then upgrading to someone like Dangerfield who is under 600 atm which is dirt cheap for him.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

    Rabbits16 · 08/05/2017 at 14:11

    Newman to Simpson or Hurley then look at culling players to free cash up to upgrade pow popper / taranto /balic down the rd?

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 14:27

    Danger has a BE of 168. So wait on him. You can leave SPP & TT for another week at least. You need to be careful with that 280k bank cause your bench rookies are not worth much. But who doesn't have that problem. You want to get a bona fide gun with that cash. If I was you I'd hold & go SPP to Danger next week. You should have enough for the transaction

      Rabbits16 · 08/05/2017 at 14:29

      unbelievable how much danger has leaked… yeh pow pow to danger next week… super trade. heres hoping danger doesnt fire this week for you Stank.

        Stanks21 · 08/05/2017 at 14:33

        What to do about newman though, don't see him playing since alir alir and McVeigh are back… although he did have 30 touches in the seconds on the weekend.

          Rabbits16 · 08/05/2017 at 14:41

          me personally…. would go Newman to Simmo then next week go Taranto to Myers & upgrade SPP to Danger

            INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 14:50

            Yep. They are good options from Rabbits

            Stanks21 · 08/05/2017 at 14:51

            Will the money work though ?? Would i be better with hurley..

              INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 15:31

              Actually it won't. You'll only get 200K max for trading TT. Perhaps Newman to Hibbered instead this week

                Stanks21 · 08/05/2017 at 16:22

                Yeah I think I might do that, leaves me 124,000 for next week. I am a bit worried about hibberd though.. Is he really worth it?

Pickle · 08/05/2017 at 14:10

Hey fellas looking for some wisdom, don't actually know what to do this week..

As usual I have Otten, Hampton, Butler all on the field and Beams in the mids bench with Barrett and Myers on the field. I have 135k in the bank and I was thinking about upgrading Hampton to a Shaw but im 20k short no other options are good enough. Should I drowngrade Butler to someone cheap and then upgrade hampton? I have 23 trades left help a friend out here community

    Rabbits16 · 08/05/2017 at 14:32

    depending how much money you have in the bank i would definitely be upgrading Beams to someone like Ebert who is extremely cheap for his overall points & also upgrading hampton

      Derek · 08/05/2017 at 19:05

      Ebert??! Didn't see that one coming

        Rabbits16 · 09/05/2017 at 14:28

        i know right haha. the guy has been killing it though only 2.5% ownership and9th overall! scores of 124, 121, 107, 95, 122, 109, 112 and only $540,000

      Cogla13 · 08/05/2017 at 20:22

      Ebert has the bye in 2 weeks ??? Crazy suggestion.

        Rabbits16 · 09/05/2017 at 14:23

        forgot about the byes but i dont see it as a massive issue in the overall picture every player has a bye

Rabbits16 · 08/05/2017 at 14:10

Hampton – Laird
&
Beams – T Adams (moving mcgrath into the mids to upgrade later)

Or

Beams – Bont
&
Hampton – Hurley

    LoganJosh7 · 08/05/2017 at 15:01

    first option easy

    JohndJames · 08/05/2017 at 15:54

    Bringing Laird and Adams into your defence would be a coup for your backline.

    jez_m · 08/05/2017 at 16:03

    First option

Dice · 08/05/2017 at 14:24

Who to get this week between….
Danger $586 B/E 168 or
Docherty $580 B/E 88
(Some big Skilled Stadium games start not this round but next)

    Rabbits16 · 08/05/2017 at 14:36

    awesome that you didnt start with Danger. you have to think he will fire at some point but i reckon Docherty this week

    KSinny · 08/05/2017 at 14:56

    Yeh I reckon we can wait another week, possibly two for danger so get docherty

    Dice · 08/05/2017 at 15:43

    thanks fellas

    Moustachio · 09/05/2017 at 10:19

    Get Danger, who is massively underpriced. Doc would be my last upgrade, if he remains at his current price which is only fair as opposed to actual value.

      whatyasmokin · 09/05/2017 at 14:36

      168 BE he can lose another 40K easily.

Jess · 08/05/2017 at 14:28

I dont have many options at all this week but Matera needs to go.
Otten to Williams then Matera to Heeney?
Or Houston to Black then Matera to Heeney?

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 15:00

    What a nasty trap Matera was. And a good lesson. If it's Otten to Zac Williams & Matera to Heeney then I like those trades

Hello · 08/05/2017 at 14:43

Who should I pick out of Jack Steven, Dusty or JPK? All at a simmilar price and should increase their average. Already have Treloar, Pendles, Danger, Selwood, Fyfe and Titch

    Rabbits16 · 08/05/2017 at 14:47

    id go dusty

    LoganJosh7 · 08/05/2017 at 14:58

    dusty

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 16:49

    Priddis

      Pitch 72 · 08/05/2017 at 17:25

      JPK

    Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 19:55

    Neale! Good POD.

Declan · 08/05/2017 at 15:21

Butler and Houston out for Bont and Pendles. Thoughts. Is there anyone else better to bring in?

    jez_m · 08/05/2017 at 16:06

    Just saw an article on the HS that Pendles has said previously that he'll miss a game if his wife is due to give birth close to a game. Just something worth thinking about.

Tommo09 · 08/05/2017 at 15:25

Going Otten/Newman and Hampton to Pendles and Montagna pending selections this week
Need the double upgrade
Only scored 1777 last week

    SF4 · 08/05/2017 at 18:55

    Newman might find his way back into the side this week. 30 touches, 1 goal and 8 marks.

      Tommo09 · 08/05/2017 at 19:30

      Might change one trade to make it Houston and Hampton/Newman to Heeney and Pendles
      If Newman is named, then I will trade Hampton

DavidSA · 08/05/2017 at 15:36

ok here is my brain after the last 2 weeks in SuperCoach.
Hampton > Merrett swing Adams back into back line.
Houston > Watson swing Dahl back into fwd line.

Ones mans trash another ones treasure move

    jez_m · 08/05/2017 at 16:07

    Wouldn't be touching Watson. Won't be a top 10 midfielder (would be lucky to finish in the top 30 to be honest). Hampton to Merrett seems a much better option.

      INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 16:14

      Hampton to Merrett big tick. Watson no

    Wattsieesq · 08/05/2017 at 16:25

    I'd trade Hampton. BE is high and Merrett is better than Watson, SC wise.

    Lazza · 08/05/2017 at 16:55

    Watson? Why would you do that – average 79, and a 3 Rd average of 62 …. If you only have $400k … then bank it and wait a week to upgrade to a premo.. ..

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 16:59

    Destroy all your hard work for the season by locking in Watson.

INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 16:00

Jarrod Waite cops a week. Hopefully Preuss gets a crack

    Just Jeff · 08/05/2017 at 16:09

    Well If he can't get a gig this week then we probably won't see him until Goldy misses games.

    Neville · 08/05/2017 at 16:14

    Hope so. I paid good coin for that goose. Should have stumped up the extra cash for Witts as he's been the superior cow to this point.

    Goat · 08/05/2017 at 16:57

    Scott can't say no now can he…..???

    Ja191 · 08/05/2017 at 19:25

    he's an absolute gun, beyond me why he's not getting a game

Wombats · 08/05/2017 at 16:16

Pitiful. The bloke is the overall 5th point scorer has 5 scores of 118 or above and three of 130 or above in 7 games and he's still only 525k, but the spuds at jockreynolds deprive the loyal community of any knowledge of him. The real reason most site visitors are getting crap scores is that info providers here work on 'I reckons' and personal favourites.
It's time to offload the chatty spuds and get some people who know what they're talking about when it comes to supercoach. The coach of Kimmy D's A team would be a good start

    Liam · 08/05/2017 at 16:27

    To be fair Yeo does go up and down but looks better this year. Maybe, i'm gonna wait.

    People just give advice you don't have to listen to them

      Choppers · 08/05/2017 at 17:33

      I think he's talking about Marc Murphy…..not Yeo. just sayin'

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 16:28

    Another angry Wombat

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 16:48

    He's only gone up 116K from his original price get him in you little girl.

    Jacob · 08/05/2017 at 17:29

    What are you his Dad or something? Seem to be taking this way too personally. The community is right to be cautious on someone who has been a notable burnman in seasons past. This is very reminiscent of last year with Waite when all his fanboys came out of the woodwork and were yapping here like there was no tomorrow. But eventually the clock ticked midnight and he turned back into a spud and then all his fair weather fanboys vanished from the face of the earth nowhere to be seen or heard. No way the YoYo is keeping this production up so enjoy it while it lasts. In fact it wouldn't surprise me if he spuds it massively Friday night with so many seemingly trading him in this week. The fantasy gods seem to get a perverse kick out of that.

      Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 17:53

      Stop living on the bad choices, there are other times where consistent scorers become inconsistent and the other way around. Supercoach has a large amount of forgiveness in it and that's where the winners come form

        Jacob · 08/05/2017 at 18:02

        Great! Another YoYo apologist/fanboy. It's like joining some sort of deluded cult. Eventually reality will set in, it always does. Let me guess you traded in Waite last season too??

    Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 17:51

    I completely agree. When a bunch of people come together like this, little portions of people think for themselves and all teams ultimately are the same in structure and choices. Last week they talked me out of Black because of his potential JS even though he's a better player. Same with Franklin in the sense that, "it's a risk" if no one else is doing it

      Cogla13 · 08/05/2017 at 20:19

      You got talked out of it, that's your problem …. be stronger.

        Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 21:14

        You're missing the point. Everyone will band together and not have any diversity in opinion which spreads

          whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 21:58

          I've said it once I'll say it again, if the herd goes one way, you are almost better off going the other.

          Everyone was convinced about Parsons, I questioned it and when I saw nobody could give me a reason I avoided him like the plague.

          Look what happened………..19 SC lol.

            Loop · 09/05/2017 at 03:58

            Parsons looked good in his second game thats why people chose him. The jury is still out. It really doesnt pay to feel too cocky about your choices in this game, sometimes you're not clever – just lucky. eg I chose not to start Otten this year because I thought that Lever would take his spot but he did well because JJ got hurt and he moved forward = luck.

              whatyasmokin · 09/05/2017 at 14:40

              Well nobody said he looked good in his second game when I asked why Parsons. There was no clear 9ndication that he was a better pick than Black, I dunno maybe I missed something.

    Lachy · 08/05/2017 at 17:54

    Wombats… you sir have no clue about supercoach.

    Matt · 08/05/2017 at 18:21

    Trust Wombats to stir up some shite on this site, all too predictable!

    Danners · 08/05/2017 at 19:01

    I remember a similar comment last season on Jarrad Waite last year when he was averaging 130 odd and look what happened from there…

      Jacob · 08/05/2017 at 19:21

      Right on Danners! Wombats must think we all have short memories here. He was huge into Waite too and was chastising all the non believers at that time as well, and then POOF! when Waite disappeared so did Wombats haha. Just can't take that furry muppet seriously.

      Keenbutclueless · 08/05/2017 at 21:12

      Just to confuse the issue, I think there are two Wombats here. One is sometimes jarring, sometimes constructive, sometimes vexing, sometimes entertaining. He goes under WombatsFC and is a strong Carlton fan. I think this is a different Wombats. Can't remember anything positive from him.

        whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 21:56

        Pretty easy to know it wasn't Wombats FC…………

        Danners · 09/05/2017 at 11:02

        I wasn't saying it was Wombats last year

    wombatsfc · 08/05/2017 at 21:15

    This sucks you're getting the credit for my good stuff and then when I drop in I get the blame for your crap. Bloody hell

      Keenbutclueless · 08/05/2017 at 21:20

      Welcome WombatsFC. SPS (who you were a lone voice on) Murphy and Kreuzer must have set you up for a good season.

        whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 22:12

        There were others that locked in SPS………….

        wombatsfc · 08/05/2017 at 23:05

        I've moved to the bush on a mountainside beside a national park (I may have died and gone to paradise) but my TV signal often fails for hours at a time and the internet is so sporadic that it can take an hour or more to make a trade in SC and 20 minutes to comment here. That is my excuse for not having SPS or Kruez, I couldn't risk any game day outs. I started with Kruez but when he broke I sold him expecting it to be a 3+weeks did the same with Saint Nick. My teams rather crap atmo ranked just inside top 5,000 but I'm looking very solid for the bye rounds if Pendle can start being a bit more damaging.
        How're you travelling in SC so far? being within 1400 at the start of the byes usually gives you a good chance if you have a solid strategy and a bit of luck.

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 22:19

    Just a question for a stupid wombat where is there a site for advice that doesn't work off I reckons?

    People can only look at previous stats and go with their gut. There is no magic supercoach crystal ball where the answers are. Idiot.

    Chris · 08/05/2017 at 23:25

    Sheesh we are getting overrun by a plague of pesky Wombats. God help us!

    kim · 09/05/2017 at 08:52

    Where are you ranked this year wombats? I am ranked in the top 4,500 and until last week was inside the top 2,000 overall so i kinda know a thing or two about what is a good or bad trade mate. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, you don't have to take the advice, go with your gut is the best advice with trades and vc and c choices anyway.

    I go with my gut overall, i never have to ask for advice on who to captain or trade its called research and previous experiences/mistakes from seasons gone bye.

    Pretty low that you have to single anyone out but i can take it you keyboard warrior.

    Great fact hunt · 09/05/2017 at 16:24

    I think you are all being a bit tough. There is good info on here it is just using the right info and ignoring the bad info. There is a player in my league that uses this website the is in the 40s overall and has finished top200 and top 1000 the years before so I suggest he knows what he talking about. Personally my side is really crap this year as my ideas were crap in total guns and rookies. Good luck all.

Joshua · 08/05/2017 at 16:17

Hampton down to Mcniece if named and Otten up to Adams. Thoughts?

    Tibor · 08/05/2017 at 17:06

    Yep you pick up a genuine premo in Adams and mcniece makes a bit of money to spend in upcoming bye week trade scramble can't see a down side to your plan

    jez_m · 08/05/2017 at 17:13

    Good plan. Hold off on that trade till teams are named on Thursday night though.

Joshua · 08/05/2017 at 16:20

Or Houston up to Yeo

Brett · 08/05/2017 at 16:28

Is Yeo the real deal ?

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 16:34

    If he stays in that role he is for sure. Watched him against Port. He was awesome

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 08/05/2017 at 16:44

      Who do you reckon pie?
      Yeo or McCrae?
      Have nank, parsons dahl and Steele out in byes in the fwd line. Rd 11/12.

      $800K war chest so time to go shopping.
      1 trade already locked in hampton to doc
      Just not sure which way to jump Yeo or McCrae?

      Didn't see the Eagles game but watched McCrae just keeps getting the pill and used it well.

      Very consistent but Yeo has a bigger ceiling.

        Jeff · 08/05/2017 at 16:49

        Only 2 games Yeo has scored badly were both at the G, he doesn't have a game at the G for the rest of the season from my knowledge. Yeo everyday for me

    Mongoose · 08/05/2017 at 18:49

    With the lack of forward options we have I would say yes.

    Danners · 08/05/2017 at 18:59

    The big million dollar question. I feel S.Mitchell has helped him out, I think the week he was out Yeo only scored 60 odd. If he was still a defender he would be worth a look. Not sure whether I would want to fit him into my forward line though

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 22:11

    Even if he isn't, I feel like right now on a 34 BE and priced at 525K he is worth a shot considering how many weeks of good scoring he has shown us.

    Choice · 09/05/2017 at 06:32

    Has he been tagged yet?

DacZawson · 08/05/2017 at 16:30

Trading Otten to Lloyd and Houston to a premium midfielder under 560k.
Disregarding bye structure, who do people see as the better selection: Dusty, Merrett, anyone else?

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 16:46

    Fyfe Merrett, Priddis, JPK or Hanners.

Goat · 08/05/2017 at 16:39

Can someone please define what "full premium" means in the history of supercoach? Is it a value or a ranking for the players on the field? Thanks in anticipation.

    Spanner · 08/05/2017 at 16:45

    Someone who will finish top 6-8 in their respective position.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 08/05/2017 at 16:59

    For mine its all based on performance rather than definition.

    Who do u see as the top point scorers in each position once they come into your team. Not point looking at the past as they only score points once in your team.

    For example if you are trading in pendles this week do you see him scoring more than someone else who is not in your team and just as importantly more than who you are trading out.
    2nd bit usually is a no brainer as you are generally upgrading a rookie but a current underperformer? Not as clear cut.

    While it's nice to look at the $ value of your team and averages in the end who ever scores the most points wins.

    Those who started with yeo, murph and Oliver well at the moment they r premos in your team as they have scored you more points than say treloar.

    Goat · 08/05/2017 at 17:06

    Thanks for both answers – both give me a good guide.

    Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 17:48

    You might be referring to the end goal or the quality of a singular player. One of those has been answered so…

    It's the point where you have all 22 on field players scoring like premiums should. 95+ for some 90+ for others but the top players will have 105+

    Lazza · 08/05/2017 at 18:34

    It is very simple – A Premium player is any player over $500K. The art is picking the right ones.

    CoachDamo · 08/05/2017 at 18:51

    Full premium means you've upgraded to the point where you no longer feel upgrades are necessary.

      Goat · 09/05/2017 at 05:32

      Thanks again all. I can see how that all fits together.

    randomcliche · 09/05/2017 at 12:06

    22 players who are robust who you can reasonably expect to score well 95+ (mids 105+). So yeah, will probably be over $500k or have fair expectation of doing so e.g. Bud. Some try to get 23 even 24 of these players to cover injuries or for loopholing, this will be more difficult that in years gone past given the cash generation being lower. I would love full premo +2, but cash and trades are short, so probably only get to full premo +1 by round 14/15.

Jono · 08/05/2017 at 16:52

Hampton to Shaw (over Lloyd) and Beams to Yeo. $81k change. Can't afford to have Beams on the pine until after the lions bye…can't see them bringing him back before then…thoughts?

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 16:58

    Good trades, Beams should've gone last week.

      Jono · 08/05/2017 at 17:50

      Yeah agree…but with no rooks went the double downgrade…cheers

    randomcliche · 09/05/2017 at 12:10

    Jono, I did double down as well. Given you held, as did I, I would wait for the injury update later today. If it says 1 week, I will be holding and I think you should to. (I think I'm in the minority here with this view, but hey).

Spanner · 08/05/2017 at 16:53

Who's the best defender for me to bring in at the moment for Hampton.
Right now I have: Doc, Laird, Jones, Howe, Otten, Marchbank

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 16:58

    Simpson, Rance, Loyd.

    Captain Risky · 08/05/2017 at 17:00

    Adams, Lloyd, Williams, Rance.

      whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 17:03

      Yep Adams for sure as he doesn't have him, williams great too.

    jez_m · 08/05/2017 at 17:13

    Adams should be a priority.

    Mongoose · 08/05/2017 at 18:47

    Adams, Simmo and Lloyd

    macca · 09/05/2017 at 09:48

    Roberton

Steeeve · 08/05/2017 at 17:00

Be careful bringing in Pendles this week. Will miss if his wife is popping out a kid

    jez_m · 08/05/2017 at 17:14

    Agreed. Going Bont over Pendles this week for that reason.

    randomcliche · 09/05/2017 at 12:15

    Can't predict when that will happen, you've got probably up to 3/4 weeks of uncertainty. Almost all babies don't come on the due date, labour normally done and dusted inside 24 hours, so you've got 1/7th chance of it occurring on gameday each week. A not insignificant risk, but one which you should be able to cover with a bench rookie. If you think he's the best and want him in at any point over the next month, I say buy. I already hold and am not looping in mids until its born.

Boltons Blues · 08/05/2017 at 17:22

Does the community think the SandiWitts combo can be a season set and forgetter? Both averageing 93 which I'm thinking if they maintain the way they are going they will survive the season considering the massive stains we still have elsewhere

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 17:34

    Been thinking the same thing Brendan. No immediate need to get rid of them

    Rick Grimes · 08/05/2017 at 17:40

    7 weeks ago I'd have said no. But there's not many viable alternatives. I'm gonna hold them as long as I can. Bigger issues elsewhere.

      INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 18:07

      Congrats on your 2206 Rick. Fantastic week. That was the biggest score I saw in all 10 leagues

        Rick Grimes · 09/05/2017 at 04:04

        Thanks INP. I've used a lot of trades early but I foresee trouble on the horizon. Need cash generating rookies and all I have is a bunch of spuds scoring 20s and 30s.

    Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 17:44

    Maybe… I'd consider it

    Captain Risky · 08/05/2017 at 18:19

    At this stage for sure. Saves probably 3 trades and you aren't gaining much by trading them out. Neither have gone massive but they are pretty consistent…lets hope the good run continues. I'd definitely be leaving them as long as possible.

    Harry H · 08/05/2017 at 19:12

    Every week a new issue comes up but not with Sandi and Witts. On current form, I have absolutely no plans to change them. However, SC is a fickle beast and we all know things change pretty quickly

    randomcliche · 09/05/2017 at 12:19

    I'm hoping to hold them till Gawn is back! There is special trade lined up Witt > Gawn might be 2 weeks after return with the 27 in his rolling avg, or might be sooner if I've got spare cash! So that is a no, but I'm sure plenty won't jump on a bloke coming back with a hamstring issue given fitness and risk of injury again….

JohndJames · 08/05/2017 at 17:29

Thinking of going with two trades this week,Hampton to Laird,already have Doc,Adams and Lloyd,my second trade will no doubt be shouted down,but I'v had enough of him,Treloar to Yeo.I plan to move Yeo to the fwd line in the coming weeks once I settle on which mids I want to bring in.

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 18:10

    That's not completely mad. Yeo looks a top 6 Fwd & Treloar is having a poor season & extremely unlikely to complete with the top 8 mids

    Danners · 08/05/2017 at 18:57

    It's tough holding onto underperforming premos like Treloar/Parker but they're still averaging over 90. Probably your first aim is to try and upgrade your team to full premo first

      hedski · 08/05/2017 at 19:33

      Agreed Danners I have both those two.

Bryan · 08/05/2017 at 17:32

Adams, Shaw, Tuohy, Otten, Hampton, Marchbank (Newmann, Hibberd)
Danger, Pendles, Fyfe, JPK, Pepper, Swallow, Taranto, Balik (Beams, O'Meara, Barrett)
Martin, Sandi (Strnadica)
Nank, Buddy, Roughy, Dahl, Macrae, Butler (Eddy, Parsons)
189K left.

I really need a hand thinking of my trades this week.
I already know the state of my team, but need some advice.
With 189, can turn Swallow or O'Meara into good players but just not enough to get some of the good ones.
So might have to do a downgrade. Throwing Adams or Dahlhaus into the middle, may help Mids a bit and getting a good DEF/FWD.
Or go for a rookie and upgrade in the MID.

    JohndJames · 08/05/2017 at 17:45

    Your main mission if you choose to accept it,is to trade out JOM,you need to make that your number one priority.

      Bryan · 08/05/2017 at 18:26

      I accept the challenge. Looking for options, do i need to keep Byes in mind?

        JohndJames · 08/05/2017 at 21:16

        Hi Bryan I'm probably not the one to ask since I don't,but that's why I usually go badly at that stage of the season,I just try and get my best team together,the byes take care of themselves.The sensible thing to do would be to look ahead though.Most would say you must look to the byes,but I don't think it should make you change your mind,if it is the right time to get a player in or out,just do it.One last thing,if you don't worry about the byes like me,it's usually only one round that doesn't work out and we have just had two of those in a row already without them.

JamBak · 08/05/2017 at 17:35

Looking to trade in a premo defender, have laird Howe and shaw, who would you recommend ?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 08/05/2017 at 17:37

    A non Rd 13 bye player
    Doc.

    Mongoose · 08/05/2017 at 18:45

    Doc or Adams

    CoachDamo · 08/05/2017 at 18:50

    Definitely Doc based on your Bye Structure – look to get Adams later.

    Nifty · 08/05/2017 at 19:40

    Can't beat Simmo for sheer value.

Pitch 72 · 08/05/2017 at 17:38

Docherty or Kade Simpson, even throw in Taylor adams.

    DacZawson · 08/05/2017 at 17:48

    Adams and Docherty ahead of Simpson, if I had to pick one I'd take Docherty just

    Stanks21 · 08/05/2017 at 18:51

    Adams plays a lot in the midfield, just something to think about

Baxter · 08/05/2017 at 17:43

Looking for a Premo Mid – Have Bont, Rocky, Danger, Dusty and Ablett.
Please give me your suggestions.

    Leeds17 · 08/05/2017 at 18:12

    Pendles

    Mongoose · 08/05/2017 at 18:44

    Pendles

    Eric_the_Red · 08/05/2017 at 18:53

    Neale.

    Danners · 08/05/2017 at 18:55

    Your best options this week would be Pendles/Zerrett or wait a week for Selwood

Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 17:44

Beams. Beams. Beams.
Who should be the downgrade? I can spend 300k-ish on Midfielders/Defenders from Hamptons out and 74k in the warchest

Sleepless in Sydney · 08/05/2017 at 17:50

Does anyone else get super flat the entire week after their fantasy side tanked? it really shouldn't matter that much in the whole scheme of things but somehow it does, at least to me. I just want to switch off Fox Footy and shut down social media altogether. Even coming here and reading all the coaches that did well is kind of soul destroying. Sometimes I wonder why I even put myself through this each year. Most of the time I'm either furious over my side or suspended in one of the 5 stages of the grieving process. Maybe I'm just depressed, I dunno.

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 18:09

    Your not alone. Thousands feel the same way

    Karl · 08/05/2017 at 18:09

    Nope buddy you are playing Supercoach exactly right. If it doesn't hurt some when your team spuds then you are not doing it right. Can't stand the twats who claim that fantasy doesn't mean much to them. Most of them are lying and feel just as bad as you do when their side sucks ass. Hang in there bro, we're all in this together, that's precisely what the JR community is for.

    Paul · 08/05/2017 at 18:14

    Well if you ask me I think your priorities are pretty farked up if you get down in the dumps over your fantasy side. Most people have actual real world problems you know. So pull yourself together and either get some help or more to the point get a life!!!

      George · 08/05/2017 at 18:31

      Bit harsh Paul

      whatyousmokin · 08/05/2017 at 20:23

      Agree

    Nutsack · 08/05/2017 at 18:32

    Duuuuuuuuuuude you are seriously in need of a blowjob. C'man man this is fantasy footy we are talking about here. If you don't enjoy it then it's a pretty simple equation, find something else that gives you a boner, as this line of work obviously doesn't agree with you.

      Mike · 08/05/2017 at 18:59

      Hehe maybe INPieman can hook him up on Tinder. I'm sure he knows some able bodied sheilas who can help him alleviate those anxieties. 🙂

    Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 19:12

    I think it's just this year, has been a real shitheap for a lot of Coaches, could get you down if you're not doing well. Maybe Nutsack's right…get your missus to give you a good blowjob lol

    Nifty · 08/05/2017 at 19:48

    Don't stress it my man. Plenty of us succumb to the supercoach blues from time to time. One of these years will crack the top 100 and all those sleepless nights will be worth it. Just soak up all the goodness on this site and ignore all the ass clowns who try to put you down. In the end you will come out a better coach for it.

      Really?? · 08/05/2017 at 20:00

      Surely you don't believe that sentimental rubbish or do you also believe in rainbow pots of gold and unicorns too? The harsh facts of the matter are that not everyone is cut out to be a supercoach superstar. It requires a very special skillset including a degree of ruthlessness that not everyone possesses. If that's not you then it's probably best to just move on to something else as it's a brutal game and not for the faint of heart or whiny b1tches!

    Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 20:01

    We take every score personally. It's called a competitive nature.

    SCdonkey · 08/05/2017 at 20:21

    Mate you haven't really experience what depression is. I have been and still is suffering with the so called "The Black Dog" of depression and anxiety.
    Went through hell for 6 months, I have been admitted in the phych ward for a week and half. On 3 different meds, visits to Psychologist and Psychiatrist.

    Supercoach is the best thing i have going right now, keeps my mind thinking other than my life or ending my life. Though this fantasy can be stressful and depressing at times, i can tell ya this. It is nothing compare to what mental illness symptoms is.

      pod · 08/05/2017 at 20:47

      Awesome SCdonkey, well said. Good luck on your journey mate.

        SCdonkey · 08/05/2017 at 21:03

        Thanks mate. It's a slow recovery, but with the right help and support. I will get there, sometimes i just wish i get through a week without having depression or anxiety. There are days i don't have it. But it's not long enough to enjoy it.

    whatyousmokin · 08/05/2017 at 20:23

    This actually pathetic

    derek · 08/05/2017 at 20:49

    it is hard being an AFL tragic in Sydney (go the sharkies). this is what makes me a werido with my friends.

      BoDerek · 08/05/2017 at 21:14

      Who could ever think you're weird? Perish the thought!

      Rabbits16 · 09/05/2017 at 14:48

      (rabbits) this is what makes me weird

    Wayno · 08/05/2017 at 21:26

    You need to seriously toughen up princess and grow a pair. Just think of my uncle Jock and all his horrible anuses over the years. Does he break down into a quivering mess and curl up in a corner somewhere. Of course bloody not. He soldiers on headlong into that adversity producing podcasts of such quality week after week, the likes of which are unsurpassed across this great land. Cheers fellas, thanks fellas!

    Simon Says · 08/05/2017 at 21:39

    What irks me most is when my mates who know less about SuperCoach than I do outscore me and talk sh1t about my trades and captain's choices. Get way too cocky when basically all they got was lucky. SuperCoach is pretty unfair in that regard. Want to outscore them so bad if only to shut them the f*ck up and put them in their place.

      Derek · 08/05/2017 at 22:39

      I've never owned Docherty. That makes me depressed

    Rabbits16 · 09/05/2017 at 14:46

    haha truth has been spoken. i would suggest turn the despair into hope by having fun with it and doing something wild and different …. find some obscure blokes and become a POD MACHINE

      Simo · 09/05/2017 at 18:44

      Go Lauchy Neale…, pod

SCdonkey · 08/05/2017 at 18:14

Berry seems to be the best downgrade only at $170K his 1st two games 46 and 50 will be out of calculation. Last two games score of 74 and 60, is sure to rise a lot after round 8. Heaps of cash to be made for a few weeks, welcome and bye Hampton.

    Dave · 08/05/2017 at 19:15

    His DPP could come in handy too around the byes especially when paired with another DPP mid/def with a different bye like Adams.

    davo · 08/05/2017 at 20:28

    I like it alot

Tom · 08/05/2017 at 18:22

Thoughts on Lachie Neale??

    Don't Blush Baby · 08/05/2017 at 18:35

    IMO in the top 8 mids plus Fyfe is not harming his scoring as most thought it would

    Lazza · 08/05/2017 at 18:36

    Considering him … always warms up early before hitting his straps … check out his 3 and 5 week averages … on my radar …. post his bye.

    hedski · 08/05/2017 at 18:36

    Gun

    Danners · 08/05/2017 at 18:53

    Missed the boat, save $70k for Zerrett or Dusty or maybe wait a week for Selwood

      Lazza · 08/05/2017 at 19:20

      Don't get the ' missed the boat ' … if he is going to be in the Top 8 MIDs … he is a valid target … and worth the buy … the boat stops at many ports …
      "I won't pick him because I didn't start with him" is illogical.

        Daniel Z · 09/05/2017 at 23:41

        Don't think that's what Danners means. Pretty sure he's just saying you missed him at his best price and there's better value out there. Not sure about you, but I'm seeing the increased need for value trades this year with the crap rookies.

    Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 19:08

    I think he's stolen Fyfe's Mojo, has become Freo's number one Mid.

    Harry H · 08/05/2017 at 19:14

    I remember arguing with my brother pre season. I thought Neale was a lock for my last mid, he thought Bont. Think we were both right. Neale's a gun but if anything is obvious this year is that each premo will have a down week. I'd wait till he has a downer rather than chasing points

      Tom · 08/05/2017 at 19:27

      Thanks for your thoughts!

    Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 20:02

    Been one of my best starting mids

    Moustachio · 09/05/2017 at 10:40

    Interrupted pre-season following about 12 different surgeries. Is more machine than man now.

TigerNut · 08/05/2017 at 18:25

Should I bring in Adams or Laird? Both didn't play 22 games last year. Injury Risk with both. What are peoples thoughts?

    redherringfc · 08/05/2017 at 18:47

    bring in one then the other. Adams is cheaper, just, with a lower BE so get him 1st.

    Stanks21 · 08/05/2017 at 18:50

    I have both. Hard to chose as they are both very reliable. But Adams does actually play in the middle not defense so technically your getting another mid for def.

    Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 19:08

    Both very reliable this year Tigernut, maybe look to get the one in who won't break your bank, and the other at some other point in the near future. As far as injuries go…this year they've both been as solid as a rock. Let's hope that continues.

    Derek · 08/05/2017 at 20:07

    Laird.

    I saw a couple of weeks ago Wells played a lot of midfield, it was Adams who was pushed forward. DeGoey, Wells, Adams, Trelor, Pendles. This week might be the first time they all play. I'm thinking Adams might get pushed out.

The BONT · 08/05/2017 at 18:25

What is Better
Otten to McNiece
Hampton to Roberton

OR

Otten to McNiece
Trealor to Neale

    Danners · 08/05/2017 at 18:52

    1st one but you've missed the boat on Roberton. Plenty of other good options like Hurley, Lloyd, JJ, Rance so do some research

      The BONT · 08/05/2017 at 19:31

      Which one is the best out of those to get instead of Roberton

        Lazza · 08/05/2017 at 19:35

        Forget the tripe … get Roberton..

    Notorious mac · 08/05/2017 at 19:50

    You havent missed the boat with roberton. He looks to be a top 6 defender. The whole idea is to pick the best team not a cheap pick that will hopefully average well from when you pick them up.

Ja191 · 08/05/2017 at 19:22

Wait a week and pickup rocky or selwood? was thinking rocky

    Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 19:25

    Hell yeah, either – or, both top 8 mids of the past.

    Lenny · 08/05/2017 at 19:25

    Rocky is a gun

      Derek · 08/05/2017 at 20:04

      But gets injured

        Derek · 08/05/2017 at 20:09

        Anyone notice Rocky did ok on the weekend…… no Beams. When beams comes back will Rocky's score be affected?

          Notorious mac · 08/05/2017 at 20:18

          He scored 137 118 104 176 104 and 53 with beams in the side. Hardly think beams affects his output

          whatyousmokin · 08/05/2017 at 20:20

          Scored 176 and a 130+ with beams in the team, dont jump to the same old conclusions.

          ben andrews · 08/05/2017 at 21:34

          no, rockliff was averaging 115 before beams got injured and produced a massive 176 with beams in the team

            Derek · 08/05/2017 at 22:34

            Fair enough. To be honest I haven't been following him. Decided not to get him because of injury.

        whatyousmokin · 08/05/2017 at 20:19

        Worth the risk.

          Jim · 08/05/2017 at 20:27

          Gun…

    Alan · 08/05/2017 at 19:37

    Let Jelwood fully bleed out over the next fortnight and should be able to pick him up <$550K. That's what i plan to do. Should be good for your byes too.

    randomcliche · 09/05/2017 at 13:21

    I own Rocky and want Jelwood for the byes!

Thomas · 08/05/2017 at 19:36

Which trades should i do? Not 100% sold on Rance's consistency but lacking round 12 bye players. Would also prefer Heeney over Yeo but already got 3 round 11 bye forwards. Shaw is quite cheap, but problem with getting him is that i already have 2 premo defenders with the same bye in round 13. In knowing this info, which option should i pick?

Option 1: Otten to rance – Butler/Houston to yeo
Option 2: Otten to Rance, Hampton to Shaw

    whatyousmokin · 08/05/2017 at 20:18

    Option 1, Rance has only scored poorly against brisbane and carlton

      Thomas · 08/05/2017 at 20:30

      Cheers for the reply mate, whilst it is by far my much preferred option, doing this trade means i keep Hampton who could lose cash. Would you still do option 1?

        whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 20:57

        Thing is Yeo is on a 34 BE, you will gain more trading him in than you will lose on Hampton I reckon.

    pod · 08/05/2017 at 20:58

    Dump Hampton he's about to bleed cash. Rance and Shaw sounds ok.

The BONT · 08/05/2017 at 19:45

Who is the best Defender Premo to pick up this week in terms of value

Have Doc and Laird

    Jono · 08/05/2017 at 19:50

    Adams

    Shane · 08/05/2017 at 19:52

    Adams

    hedski · 08/05/2017 at 20:03

    Z. Williams

    Derek · 08/05/2017 at 20:03

    Both Simmo and Shaw under $490k is a steel

Shane · 08/05/2017 at 19:50

GOOD OPTION OR NOT

Hampton to Mcnicce
Butler to Franklin/Heeney

Franklin or Heeney

    SF4 · 08/05/2017 at 22:42

    Heeney

bob the builder · 08/05/2017 at 19:59

Need some help deciding on the best trades to make this week 😕
Option 1:
Beams>Bont, Otten>premo (means i have to hold Hampton)
Option 2:
Beams>Bont, Hampton>berry/mcneice
Wish i could upgrade both beams and Hampton but only 275k in war chest

    Derek · 08/05/2017 at 20:02

    Bont is expensive. Who else on your watchlist of keepers?

      whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 20:55

      I'm trading him in, considering his average and ability to score in a successful team I reckon he is actually decent value and will finish the season possibly up around 650K.

        Derek · 08/05/2017 at 22:32

        Where you getting the money from? Spending $600k on players will mean you won't get to full premium

          whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 23:10

          Not spwending 600K means you won't have the best players and will only have mutton dressed as lamb, full semi-premo isn't good enough.

          I made good decisions on mid pricers and rookies so have no problem locking in one expensive player.

          Witts, Sandi, Oliver, Nank, Steele, WHE, Marchbank, Otten, Houston, Butler, SPS, GHS, McGrath, Hampton.

          Having all these players has bought my team value to 12,361,900 with another 248, 000 in cash I'm going just fine.

      bob the builder · 08/05/2017 at 21:12

      I want to save my last spot for sloane after his bye, happy with all my other mids and really want Bont

    whatyousmokin · 08/05/2017 at 20:16

    Bont and Simpson or Loyd

Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 20:04

What's the worst and best trades people have made this season?

    The BONT · 08/05/2017 at 20:06

    Roughead to Nankerivs when they were the same price

    Tom · 08/05/2017 at 20:18

    Jarrod Pickett…..

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 20:19

    Season isn't over yet. Plenty of time for my spud trade of the year. Goldy to Pruess looks bad right now. But I used the money to get Macrae & Hanners the following week & got rid of JOM at the same time. All tonnes from Macrae & Hanners since. WHE to Buddy last week looked a disaster, but not so bad this week. The ebbs & flows of the game. Buy low sell high is the name of the game. But it doesn't always work

    derek · 08/05/2017 at 20:39

    only made 7 trades… lol. plenty of shockers yet to be done.

    best so far…
    Mills >> Nank
    Cyril >> Buddy

    dud…
    Gawn >> Preuss

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 08/05/2017 at 20:39

    GH-S to Witts b4 Rd 3 price rise..

    Any number of rookie duds traded in.
    Hoping they come good.

    Dnoyes · 08/05/2017 at 21:13

    Traded SPS out two weeks ago. There was no way that I could have expected him to get over 210 points over the next two weeks. Best trade was getting O'Meara out early.

    Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 21:37

    Worst>> Not going with the crowd and getting in WHE. Also I went too early trading out Steele for Nankervis (although Nank has been great) and trading out Roo
    Best >.Dumping Roughie after Rd 3. Now he's coming good. Lol

    BlueNath · 08/05/2017 at 22:09

    Best: Zac Jones – I'm starting to see him being a keeper
    Worst: Eddy/Pickett – can't split them. I've cut their heads offfor no return on my (poor) investment.

    SF4 · 08/05/2017 at 22:40

    O'meara To Hanners. The week JOM was injured.

      DEE · 08/05/2017 at 22:49

      JOM to Sloane week JOM was first injured.

    randomcliche · 09/05/2017 at 13:30

    Worst. I did Armitage out, JOM in. Yep, wk 1 I was doing some injury trades with 3 going out injured rnd 1. If only I went Oliver. Otherwise it will be selling Barrett and Newman each one week before they were recalled!

    Best. Probably Eddy out, Hardwick in. Because Eddy hasn't played since and I didn't get stuck with Fisher being injured. Eddy still owned by 45% of teams. Too early to tell, but its looking good atm (otherwise its Hibbard Jnr to Houston, RND 3).

Ben · 08/05/2017 at 20:06

kade Simpson, Alex rance or heath shaw. rance has best bye structure nut not sure on scoring capability. premo defenders are laird, adams and doch

    The BONT · 08/05/2017 at 20:11

    Same here which one im thinking roberton but his price is a factor

    derek · 08/05/2017 at 20:35

    they are my top 6. Have Laird, Simmo and adams, just a matter of picking the other 3 off when they are at their lowest. Got Simmo last week.

      Hawks · 08/05/2017 at 20:59

      Agree with the top 6, although at this stage I have Touhy who looks like sticking around for a while. I also have Simpson, Laird, Adams & Shaw, will probably get Rance before round 11.

        Derek · 08/05/2017 at 22:29

        That bloke from the Swans played ok last week.

          Cogla13 · 09/05/2017 at 07:57

          Zac Jones is ahead of Shaw at the moment. I have them both.

    pod · 08/05/2017 at 20:54

    Rance is a gun defender

Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 20:12

Damn frustrating to have to play EVW on the field. Praying for Newman to return.

    Tom · 08/05/2017 at 20:24

    In the same boat as you

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 20:44

    He's not coming back. Ask Tom Mitchell

      Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 21:38

      Florent came back so maybe Horse is changing his ways.

        Pinger · 08/05/2017 at 23:55

        Swans top draft pick – Florent replaced Brandon Jack

        Which one of McVeigh, Mills, Jones, Lloyd is Newman going to replace?

        Unless there is injuries he is not coming back anytime soon.

whatyousmokin · 08/05/2017 at 20:15

Rance didnt score well aainst brisbane and carlton because the ball wasnt in defense enough. He is possibly a top scorer from here on.

    derek · 08/05/2017 at 20:33

    i agree. high on my watchlist. Richmond will probably come back to the pack, win a few lose a few more. rance will do well. Very SC friendly

      Steeeve · 09/05/2017 at 09:11

      He's coming into my team this week along with Pendles (provided he plays)

Steve1 · 08/05/2017 at 20:17

Just read that Eddy kicked another 5 goals, thats 10 in 2 weeks, what more does he have to do to get recalled!

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 20:43

    Port injury list……NIL. That's the problem

Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 20:22

Annoying to see the MRC rub out Koby Stevens for a tackle that was rewarded by the umps with a free kick. So much inconsistency when a similar tackle by Mummy recently received no sanction.

Chris_Judd · 08/05/2017 at 20:23

Thoughts on this trade? Hampton to Bery, switch berry to the midfield and trade out beams for T.Adams.

    derek · 08/05/2017 at 20:32

    if you have enough cash you can do just the one trade. Beams to adams.

      Chris_Judd · 08/05/2017 at 20:33

      Nah sadly I don't have the money, better to offload hampton anyway

    Pinger · 09/05/2017 at 00:16

    When we consider trading in a rookie who has played 5 games, averaging under 40, costs 170k & is playing in the bottom side.

    Welcome to the challenging landscape that is SC 2017

      whatyasmokin · 09/05/2017 at 00:45

      It's nuts I reckon. Forget it and wait for other options. This is why it was important to grab bubble boys when they pop up, if that meant building a big cash reserve so be it.

        Leeds17 · 09/05/2017 at 06:14

        Have to delve a little deeper though Berry's role has changed the last 2 weeks, he's been get mid rotations and his scoring has improved, a score of 14 about to drop out of his rolling ave means his cash will be very solid if he can keep up a 50-60 ave over the next few weeks… That being said if McNeice get's picked at the Basement price I will go that way.

Nik · 08/05/2017 at 20:28

A. Doc or Roberton

Then for value

B. Loyde or jones ?

    SF4 · 08/05/2017 at 22:38

    Doc and Lloyd

      whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 23:02

      Agreed

NutSack · 08/05/2017 at 20:29

The game in China is called pandering to the immigrant nations. In case you havent heard America will be a South Asian majority nation in 2075 and Melbourne Australia will be a non-white majority city in 2030. Melbournes population is set to grow by 3.5 million in the next 15 years with ALL POPULATION increase from African and South Eastern immigrants. Basically the white birth rate is negative across the planet so if Australia cant get Asians to the footy then Aussie Rules will platue in its growth. Social demographics experts have declarted that if Africans and Asians do not increase Australias population then the country is doomed. LOL-IRONIC HEY??? Basically there is as many white people on Earth now as there will ever be. The planet is slowly returning to its USELESS third world beginnings but LONG LIVE AFL 🙂

    pod · 08/05/2017 at 21:12

    Wow

      Dusty Spurs · 08/05/2017 at 21:18

      Yeah, pretty rotten commentary NutSack.

    Juzzy · 08/05/2017 at 21:27

    I hope you are fishing but against my better judgement ….

    Melbs pop growing at 3.5m entirely from immigrants ? Not sure on that one.

    If you are going to quote social demographics experts try to use the word declared rather than declarted.

    Your last two sentences are pretty racist and I am not that politically correct guy.

    I do agree with you that AFL rocks.

TOPHAWK1 · 08/05/2017 at 20:41

Hi community,

I have a confession to make. I am starting to get cold feet on Scott Pendlebury.

As I do not have him, I nearly pulled the trigger and traded him in last week. Let's face it, the bloke is a bloody champion.

I merely held out as his BE was still sitting at around 123. I grabbed Heath Shaw at rock bottom and thought, I will grab Pendles next week.

Then Pendles produced a 91 against Carlton. Carlton won too by the way……..He is obviously very cheap at $564K with a BE of 90 which is great, but it also tells me his performances to date have been well below par.

But now throw Adam Treloar into the mix. He is also very cheap at $525K after his miserable 73 on the weekend. I currently (still) own the bloke. Furthermore, his price has now plummeted by $80K and his BE now sits at an insane 164. His price might have a 4 in front of it after round 8.

The key take out for me is that there are serious issues at Collingwood. PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

Whether it is the coach (coaching staff), the board, Eddy, poor culture/facilities, whatever it is, I reckon it might be time to look elsewhere.

Cheers

    pod · 08/05/2017 at 20:51

    Agree, the only one I have is Adams.

      Danny · 08/05/2017 at 20:55

      Yep same here

      TOPHAWK1 · 08/05/2017 at 20:58

      I have Adams too. After last week, he is the only pie that is SC relevant right now.

    SCdonkey · 08/05/2017 at 20:55

    Fair call TopHawk. I might have to suck it up as i have bought Pendle in last Round, but Trealor going down to figure of $400K might have to pull the trigger on him. Either sideway or downgrade. Hope the Pies gets their shits together soon, so i don't have to worry about Pendle stinks it up.

      TOPHAWK1 · 08/05/2017 at 21:16

      You have Pendles now who is still an uber premo. His BE is friendly, and may pump out a 150 next week.

      I was shocked how bad Collingwood were against Carlton. A side Pendles normally goes huge against.

      That for me got me worried.

      I will stick with Treloar for one more week. I really hope he can put in a big one against his old club GWS. Another spud effort, and he is gone.

      Guns and Rookies league are going OK! Ranked 164. Only 2 spots behind Trig's happy place at 162.

      Keep the faith SCdonkey. Its early days.

      Cheers mate.

        Good Rush · 08/05/2017 at 22:37

        He has played 3 games in 12 days, he is dependable but not superman. He will be in my team soon.

    Notorious mac · 08/05/2017 at 21:07

    Treloar was getting alot of the ball early on just his disposal wqs poor due to his in close contested touches. Now he isnt getting much of it which suggests a form slump. He will turn it around.

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 21:07

    The problem Treloar & Pendles are having is no decent key forwards to kick it to. Darcy Moore is too young & there's no one else. He's a 2-3 key forward. This impacts Treloar more than Pendles because Pendles can still hit smaller targets. Treloar can't. He either has to go for goal or turn it over

      TOPHAWK1 · 08/05/2017 at 21:30

      You are right about that.

      Then why put a guy like Mason Cox in the forward line? He has done nothing. He has also stuffed Brody Grundy's ruck output to the dismay of many SC coaches…

      The intercept mark king Jeremy Howe is also spudding now. Perhaps he needs a stint on the forward line…

      Ask Bucks. He knows best.

        Dnoyes · 08/05/2017 at 23:26

        Collingwood have the choice of playing either Jessie White or Cox. White offers a lot more up the ground than Cox, but Cox helps to structure the forwardline and creates a contest for the small forwards to crumb. Neither of them offer any forward pressure. Cox is clearly a bit of a liablity for now, but it's not his fault that Collingwood refuse to draft any key forwards.

        Lazza · 09/05/2017 at 00:17

        Of course everything Bucks does is considered in light of SC … I hope Cox plays every week… then I won't have to even bother about Grundy … loving the Pies trend 4th, 6th,11th, 12th…. 15th or 16th this year would be fitting….

      Derek · 08/05/2017 at 22:23

      Every team who has played Collingwood, the half backs have racked up points, mainly from turnovers and intercept marks. ie Marchbank last week.

      Trelor is the worse

    Weasel · 08/05/2017 at 21:29

    Treloar was shown on the news tonight leaving after having some scan done. They didn't elaborate any further. He's definitely not getting to as many contests and sub 80% game time is low for him.

      Derek · 08/05/2017 at 22:25

      This week we should see Collingwood with Adams, Trelor, Pendles, Wells, DeGoey. Let's see what they look like.

      I think Adams and a Pendles might get pushed forward

        whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 23:16

        Will be interesting, have held off Pendles at the moment.

derek · 08/05/2017 at 20:42

Waite given a week off. Preuss might get a game

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/05/2017 at 20:52

    I reckon he just might get a game.

    Pruess looks like the incredible hulk! He is a big boy.

    Heard he ended up with 64 hit outs in the two's over the weekend. I reckon a recall is on the cards after that effort.

      Derek · 08/05/2017 at 22:20

      I need him to make cash so I can upgrade him to Ryder after Ports bye

Kylegrenda · 08/05/2017 at 21:18

Double upgrade for me , jäger to dusty and parfit to rocky ?
Thoughts.? Have plenty of cash

    Ja191 · 08/05/2017 at 21:22

    I like it

      Kylegrenda · 08/05/2017 at 21:26

      should I look at Bont and rocky. Or get dusty while he's cheap ?

        whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 22:02

        Bont and Rocky. Richmond might have fooled us early on. Martin is a gun though so anything could happen.

    DefyingMadness · 08/05/2017 at 21:36

    I am waiting for 1 good game from Dusty and he is in my team. Going to have to get cheap premos this years to get full premo

    BlueNath · 08/05/2017 at 22:15

    Rocky is expected to drop another $10k IF he scores 122. So I'd wait if you decide to go with him… saving the cash is critical this year

    BlueNath · 08/05/2017 at 22:17

    Actually, dusty will drop about the same. So hold off for this week

MMMMM · 08/05/2017 at 21:18

Is laird too expensive too bring in at the moment or go for him now (otten out)?

    Hawks · 08/05/2017 at 21:30

    Laird won't be cheaper for a while, if at all…..get him in.

    SF4 · 08/05/2017 at 21:36

    If you don't bring him in now you will be missing out on valuable points. He's a must have.

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 22:07

    I'd wait till after his bye and hope he goes down.

The BONT · 08/05/2017 at 21:35

I didn't start with T. Adams becasue of so much injury worry so who do i get Roberton who is on fire or reliable Adams

    SF4 · 08/05/2017 at 21:35

    Adams

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 21:50

    Adams

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/05/2017 at 21:52

    Adams

    Derek · 08/05/2017 at 22:17

    Laird.

The BONT · 08/05/2017 at 21:38

If McNiece and Berry both get named this week are people jumping McNiece or Berry

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 21:50

    McNeice I'm not even considering Berry.

      TOPHAWK1 · 08/05/2017 at 22:08

      Too late for that now smokes.

      Berry already 170K and playing. The ship has sailed…..

      Mc Neice not playing. The train is getting rusty at the station.

        whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 22:17

        Well I picked up EVW last week, will lock in McNeice when he returns for huge cash gen.

        Berry is rubbish and way too expensive.

          TOPHAWK1 · 08/05/2017 at 22:22

          Of course, Berry is way to expensive NOW.

          Good luck with your plans.

    BlueNath · 08/05/2017 at 22:01

    ?? You are paying a premium! Cash generation is really vital this year so if you miss getting a player on the bubble then let it go. I would save your trades. You'll thank me later in the year 🙂

    Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 22:11

    McNiece …money is super important.. not paying overprice for schmuck rookies.

    Gold Rush · 08/05/2017 at 22:42

    Berry, better JS I reckon.

    Lazza · 09/05/2017 at 00:07

    Berry has only gone up $30k and his scores are increasing. Has a BE of -24 .. even if he only gets 40 points he will make $30k this week… more likely to go well over that and deliver $40k+ this week. He still has plenty of $$ to be earned … plus he has DPP and there aren't too many def rookies coming thru…

    The so called boat is still within swimming distance …

      whatyasmokin · 09/05/2017 at 00:43

      170K and costing a trade. Reckon he'll even make it to 300K? Good luck but I wouldn't go near it.

        Lazza · 09/05/2017 at 09:32

        So you didn't buy Hampton because he was too dear I suppose? At $160K he has made $145k, and time to sell.
        Berry is a slow burn … but if he keeps up his most recent scoring 2 x 60+ … he will reach $300k… he is the logical replacement for Hampton … similar buy price, will have a similar average and return plus a DPP. We all have to trade so no matter what, it will cost a trade no matter which way you go… plenty bought rookies at $200k+ at the start of the year …

        Cant see McNiece getting many more games – he is a rookie, elevated for Laverde who will be back mid season – should be ready to resume following their R13 bye. That gives McNiece a max of 5 games unless there is another LTI.

          whatyasmokin · 09/05/2017 at 14:33

          Yes but I was able to start with hampton, not burn an extra trade getting him in……big difference.

          whatyasmokin · 09/05/2017 at 14:33

          McNeice's js is a large issue though i agree.

    Pinger · 09/05/2017 at 00:55

    McNiece may be the final piece in our rookie bench jigsaw puzzle.

    Will fit perfectly next to to Hibberd in the backs, with Pickett, Fisher, Miles in the mids, Cameron in the rucks & Eddy, Parsons in the forwards.

    I have come this far, if he is named, he is in.

    I might even do a double downgrade & grab Mutimer as well.

    neilDemons Delight · 09/05/2017 at 08:48

    Thought about this long and hard..For me the boat just pulled out only risen by 30 and compared to McNiece Js is better plus DPP INVALUABLE. All those that bagged me for rejecting Parsons last week I listened and regret it now cant have 8 non starters benched Choose Berry without doubt

ben andrews · 08/05/2017 at 21:38

thoughts on Jack steven, is he set to explode priced at 506k his last 2 weeks have been 107 and 120

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 21:49

    Not sure his DE is good enough, price id decent but will he be a top mid from here on?

    11 clangers in one of the games you mention.

    BlueNath · 08/05/2017 at 21:58

    I think he will. He just looks like he want to rip apart opposition midfields now and is starting to do it. Works super hard and is being rewarded with the olde one-two. And special mention on Ross too who may not be at beast like, but is starting to look really accomplished. If the Saints keep up this form expect both to average 100+ from here on

    Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 22:09

    Can go really big but his disposal efficiency lets him down. I am a Saints supported and love his pace.

Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 22:13

A site for those people interested in who performed in the magoos and players most likely to come in soon. Preuss and Eddy look likely.

      Steeeve · 09/05/2017 at 09:12

      Same as Hannan, Pickett and Fisher. Too many but what am I gonna do? Sell them for nothing?

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 23:00

    BVC does an incredible job here on the Jock Reynolds site with his Rookie Scout Report every week, dare say it kicks ass over the AFL article.

      Steeeve · 09/05/2017 at 09:12

      Kicks ass over every article.

Andrew · 08/05/2017 at 22:15

Cripps or Merrett?

    Ja191 · 08/05/2017 at 22:25

    Zerrett

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 23:01

    Zerret no brainer!

    Steeeve · 09/05/2017 at 09:13

    Cripps has shown a tendency to come FLYING home. My final midfield spot will be between he and JPK, whoever is cheaper after that round 11 bye — no Zerrett.

      Jake.B · 09/05/2017 at 20:07

      No zmerret? You're cooked steve, probably a below average team you have

Tim · 08/05/2017 at 22:27

Thoughts on Rance? Suits my bye structure but is he reliable enough?

    Ja191 · 08/05/2017 at 22:46

    he does well when richmond lose and average when they win. lets hope they do win a lot tho :p (richmond supporter)

Willymack1234 · 08/05/2017 at 22:29

Rance or Jones?

Ian Balfour · 08/05/2017 at 22:31

Can anyone tell me how round 9 and the main bye rounds are being scored ie. how many players are being counted?

    DacZawson · 08/05/2017 at 23:00

    Full 22 will be counted meaning you'll need to use bench players in place of your Gold Coast and Port Adelaide players

      Ian Balfour · 08/05/2017 at 23:04

      Thanks DacZawson 🙂

Ian Balfour · 08/05/2017 at 22:38

Can anyone tell me how round 9 and the main bye rounds are being scored ie. how many players are being counted?

    Lazza · 08/05/2017 at 23:54

    R9 = 22 as per a normal round.
    R11, R12, R13 = best 18 scores out of 22 on field.

Weasel · 08/05/2017 at 22:44

In a bit of a dilemma.
No cash generation from spud rookies & 5 didn't play this week. My main bench coin is in the ruck stocks with Witts on the pine. (Stef & Sandi).
1. Keep Witts until the bye round and look at a cheap DPP as I have Nank fwd.
2. Keep Witts long term and offload Sandi?
Only have 21K but 23 trades. Holes galore in my team & need $$$.

    Gold Rush · 09/05/2017 at 01:10

    Had Witts also for cash generation, made enough for me so cuĺled him last week and upgraded defence with Docherty.

    Russty_ · 09/05/2017 at 01:40

    400 grand sitting on the bench ain't good, I'd suggest get rid of Witts or Sandi, whoever you think will breakdown or spud it first, and make yourself some cash, get Strndick or Cameron for the swing…
    then you can get rid of another burnt spud for some creamy mashed potato 🙂

    Pinger · 09/05/2017 at 02:41

    I forked out the extra 100k & started Witts at R3, thinking that he would be a good cash cow & to have ruck cover early in the season. I also started Nank in the forwards.

    So far Witts has exceeded my expectations & because of this it does change the way I originally viewed him.

    My original thought was to cash Wiits in at his bye in round 9, which I still might. The 300k surplus from downgrading him to a cheap DPP will go along way to upgrading a dud rook to a premo.

    I now have also been thinking about offloading Sandi instead of Witts.

    My advice would be to hold both for 1 more week if you can before making a decision. By the way it is a good dilemma to have.

garfield_da_cat · 08/05/2017 at 23:07

Hi all was just needing some thoughts on trading out Treloar + Steele and bringing in Pendles + Yeo

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 23:13

    Steele's BE is only 61. Nothing more to be said really.

    JohndJames · 08/05/2017 at 23:20

    I'd just go Treloar to Yeo for now.

    JohndJames · 09/05/2017 at 00:26

    I would not be trading out Steele,think he has it in him to be a keeper in the fwds.

    SF4 · 09/05/2017 at 10:19

    Should hold the both of them. Steele has been producing good scores and will be worth holding on for longer.
    Treloar shouldn't be traded out yet.

      garfield_da_cat · 09/05/2017 at 19:50

      Treloar is leaking cash like a sive so for me he has to go. As well as this there is also questions over his match fitness this week. So if i hold Steele then really it comes down to a question of who do i trade Treloar out for pendles or yeo?

Jake Brown · 08/05/2017 at 23:34

Is nobody else considering grabbing Zorko next week? super high breakeven this week so could get down to under 530k!

    Kyle · 08/05/2017 at 23:55

    Zorko, sloane, selwood, dusty and the bont all on my radar to fill my final 2 mid slots. Not really too interested in any of the others. Am thinking one of bont or sloane are a must and then look for best value of the rest. Selwood with a huge BE of 180 should drop a lot in price. So potentially selwood could take that final spot over the rest.

    SF4 · 09/05/2017 at 10:17

    I have Dusty and Cripps on my watchlist before Zorko.

Dean · 08/05/2017 at 23:39

I'm playing for keeps and not interested in any league games. I structured my team knowing very well it will be lacking depth in round 13 – Let's face it my midfield in R13 as it stands will only have Bont & Danger although my aim is to bring Rocky or Selwood in for Pepper. So as good as my midfield may look right now it will hurt me come R13

In my defence my current two Premo's in: Laird & Shaw will be out in Round 13 – So I must look at bringing in Simpson or Docherty if he drops but doubt it, I hate spending big in defence because it's very rare for "Premo" in defence to score consistent each year. Prime example is Shaw & Simpson.
In my Midfield my only premo's will be BONT & Danger although by P13 Pepper will become Rocky or Selwood I hope.
Ruck not concerned about because I will be bringing in Steff Martin via DPP and bring Nank back to my FWD
In my Forward my current team has all it's Premo's playing such as: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Lynch and I am strongly considering bringing Yeo & Heeney in this week.

So if I do make those trades this week. My players in round 13 whether they play or not are only Marchbank, Newman, Stewart, EVW, Bont, Danger, Pepper, Barrett, Fisher, Nank, Dahlhaus, Macrae, Lynch, Yeo, Heeney, Butler, Parsons &
Eddy. So a minimum of at least 4 of those players mentioned above such as Newman, Stewart, Fisher & Eddy are highly unlikely to play in round 13

MY CURRENT TEAM IS:
DEF: Laird, Shaw, Otten, Marchbank, Hampton, Newman (Stewart, EVW)
MID: Sloane, Bont, Danger, Pendles, Titch, Heppell, Fyfe, Pepper (McGrath, Barrett, Fisher)
RUCK: Sandi, Nank (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Lynch, WHE, Butler, Houston (Eddy, Parsons)

Lack of cash generation is going to make it hard to be FULL premo by round 12 which is ALWAYS my goal after trading in EVW & Parsons this week. However I do have $384,000 in the kitty however if I bring in Yeo & Heeney it will only leave me with $60,000

Any idea's community will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I am often surprised at the amount of effort people put into forward planning for 6 weeks time. I had a season plan for Gawn as R1 set and forget and Roo as a set and forget forward. Here I am 7 weeks later having traded 1 at rd. 2 and the other at rd 4 (with bonus price drop). I planed (punted) that Swallow and O'Meara would ease into the season and produce consistent outcome. I lost faith in both. Many of those players you mentioned will be gone by rd. 13 – either from your side because they will be losing money or from the AFL side that week dropped or injured. Dangerfield ? Don't count on it. He looks injured. The ones that you think will miss, may be back in. Make the best decision for the side each week. Favour trading in players who will play in rd 13 (but they will not play sometime between now and then).

    Jake.B · 09/05/2017 at 20:12

    I rekon look at trading a defender like hampton, swapping McGrath back and pick up a midfield rookie?

Rocksta · 08/05/2017 at 23:55

Otten and SPP for Pendles and Myers ( leaves me $45K),
OR
Hampton and Butler for Yeo and Myers ( leaves me with $9K.
Both Options have a similar effect on my Byes.

    whatyasmokin · 09/05/2017 at 00:41

    Myers has only played one game I'd wait.

    He is already in 8.6% of teams lol.

      Rocksta · 09/05/2017 at 07:51

      Yea, I know,
      But I'd rather go early on him as oppossed to bringing in McNiece or Berry or EVW.
      Myers started well but ran out of puff. He'll be much better for the run and os definitely a better option than the current defensive Rookies ( Barring Injury of course).
      I wanted to get rid of Hampton and Otten for Myers and Docherty, but the Doc has a Rd11 bye and I'm already struggling for numbers/Premos in that bye rd.
      I may have to go the Yeo option………………but taking him over Doc or Pendles just doesn't feel right.

    Russty_ · 09/05/2017 at 01:27

    Spp only has a B.E of 10,still money to be made there, is there anyone else you could dump?…I wouldn't worry about going a week early on Myers, he'll get games and play better I think. I think I'd get rid of Hampton before Otten, Jenkins isn't playing very well anyway, might get dropped.
    Hampton is a yoyo boy.

    SF4 · 09/05/2017 at 10:15

    SPP still has a low BE, hold until his bye.

    Kyle · 09/05/2017 at 12:00

    I would avoid pendles ove the next 2 weeks. His wife is about to pop and he has said he will not play/immediately leave the game if she goes into labour.

James · 09/05/2017 at 02:44

Otten and Houston for Adams and Yeo?

Downside, have to hold Hampton for a week and play one of Parsons/Hannan on field.

    Lazza · 09/05/2017 at 09:40

    Tough one… Both Adams and Yeo will increase in price this week. Houston likely to hold his price. Otten and Hampton likely to drop.
    Do you have DPP moves to be able to dice both Otten and Hampton to hold Houston and secure Adams & Yeo and bank a bit more cash.?

    Your problem could be that neither Parsons or Hannan play this week … both had poor games last week.

Goat · 09/05/2017 at 05:45

Is anyone thinking of moving JPK out? It's got me very tempted….

    neilDemons Delight · 09/05/2017 at 08:34

    remember hannas

    kim · 09/05/2017 at 12:22

    Pretty sure he isn't injured, just copped the robbo tag on the weekend, usually starts the year slow. I think he will come good hold mate.

    Tibor · 09/05/2017 at 12:22

    Definitely not. But please do because I'll be keeping him and you know what happens as soon as you sack him

    Cr0magn0n · 09/05/2017 at 12:59

    Hold. He's a proven gun, known to start slowly, will come good.

pod · 09/05/2017 at 07:32

R.I.P. Lou, bloody legend.

Krazee-Eyez Killa · 09/05/2017 at 08:12

Newman best on ground in the NEAFL. Can see him getting another crack soon

red5 · 09/05/2017 at 08:21

If McNiece playing:
Otten to McNiece
Houston to Yeo
If not I don't see any worth while trades.

neilDemons Delight · 09/05/2017 at 08:32

Vale Lou might hate Collingwood but not Lou loved his banter his recepie league teams you just never never missed this Younger gen should see tapes of this IF Collingwood beat gws this week I will wear my sons Collingwood Guernsey complete with figjams no 5 for a week IN HONOUR OF LOU rest in peace louy

Derek · 09/05/2017 at 09:32

I've done some calculation on how far I am away from affording my full premium team, including a couple of half decent bench cover.

As it stands I need to generate a further $1,785k from my rookies! Hopefully in the next 6-7 weeks.

That is almost $300k per week!!!

This didn't seem too much to ask, until I had a look at who my rookies are….. seriously, have you ever seen a worse bunch in your life. And the half decent ones like Hampton, Butler and McGrath are close to maxed out.

Some serious cost cutting and bargain hunting needs to be done.

People who are out there buying Sloanes, Bonts, Ricky's, Neal's need to tighten their belt a little otherwise no full premium team for them.

My average spend on new premiums can't be anymore than $509k (revised down from $516k)

And remember as you get more premiums, you have less cash generators.

    The Ranger · 09/05/2017 at 09:55

    Yeah I did a similar bit of math last night Derek and it's not looking good.
    If I can luxury trade later then I will but for now I'm readjusting my expectations as I can't see these rookies earning enough cash to get me the team I wanted at the start of the year.
    Wines, Zorko, Goddard…anyone that might hit a 105av has to be strongly considered.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/05/2017 at 10:04

      Just did the same thing
      Have a huge war chest now but that is going to be used up bringing in Doc, Rocky, McCrae and pendles.
      The current rooks they r shite.
      Leading into the bye where you would hope to go 1 up 1 down they may make $100k each.
      No chance of full promo end of byes. Will still have 1-2 rooks on field and not touching rooks of Sandiwitts

    Holty · 09/05/2017 at 09:59

    Well said. Ive had the same thought process which has now lead me to a stack of cash in the bank by bringing in cash cows. But it is now time to upgrade as no rookies are out there this week.

    INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 10:29

    I've come to the same conclusion Derek. If you don't shop in the bargain bin you have no chance of getting to full premium. Those that purchased Sloane at 675 last week will suffer. You need to wait for guys like Robbie Gray to crash in price following his 30 last week

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/05/2017 at 10:55

      JPK and Roo under $500k after their bye
      They are definitely on the radar.
      Gray has groin troubles so will get a fair rest after this week if he plays.

        INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 11:20

        True Trig. JPK absolutely on the radar. Started slowly last year & finished like a freight train. Hopefully he's still cheap post bye. Same goes with Roo

    neilDemons Delight · 09/05/2017 at 11:47

    Just about to ask you this question Derek No doubt you and these guys are correct I did a similar trial and found 520 to be my figure Pendles is out as is sloan and bont unless we field 20 good prems and 2 pickets. Look to buddy ebert even steele or Boyd/Murphy both will come good and bargains..No way many are going to reach full prems by post byes . This is one reason Berry over McNiece comes into it though an initial saving of 70k by byes end Berry will be way in front and DPP

    Steeeve · 09/05/2017 at 12:57

    It's true that your trades are more important, but this goes to highlight how vital it is to have your starting team correct.
    If your starters are keepers that means they will go up in price. Much easier to have them straight away than try to afford them later.

      Beezneez · 09/05/2017 at 16:04

      I strongly agree Steeeve. Last year I ranked 200 odd and 30 something early in the year by, I believe, picking a strong team at the start. Everybody bags JLT form as being slightly irrelevant but I disagree to a degree. A lot of the good scoring players atm had strong JLT form based on points per minute. This year I am currently ranked just over 1000 but was 600 odd a couple of weeks ago. I still have 19 of my on field starting lineup. Having said that, often the biggest obstacle in determining how you fare is lady luck. i.e injuries, suspensions and the trade choices you make and when you make them. For example, last week I had to arrange my team to account for the following omissions: Greene, Nankervis, Beams, Fisher, Parfitt, Newman and Eddy.

    whatyasmokin · 09/05/2017 at 14:29

    No Bontempelli.

Holty · 09/05/2017 at 09:50

I hate this game
I hate this game
I hate this game
Nice score…….I love this game.

FetusDave · 09/05/2017 at 10:15

Anyone have any news about Pendlebury's wife expecting a baby this week, and he might miss the game because of it? Heard a rumour, but can't find any news

    SF4 · 09/05/2017 at 10:22

    Yep, he even said during the preseason that if his wife gives birth he will miss the game.

    INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 10:32

    She's 38 weeks. Let's book her in for a caesarean on Monday & end this problem!

      FetusDave · 09/05/2017 at 11:06

      I had to google how long pregnancy lasts ahah. Is this a good reason to hold off bringing Pendlebury in?

        INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 11:24

        Absolutely hold off Dave. He said if she goes into labour during a game he will leave immediately. Wait till the spuds arrives & I'm praying it's a boy!

          Benjamin B · 09/05/2017 at 11:41

          Already confirmed its a boy i read? Hopefully left footed

            neilDemons Delight · 09/05/2017 at 11:52

            Long as he doesn't name it nathan

              INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 12:01

              Haha Neil! I seriously doubt he'd do that, or Eddie

                neilDemons Delight · 09/05/2017 at 12:26

                half as good as his old man will be great

iLoveNMFC · 09/05/2017 at 10:18

Is Heeney a top 6 forward?

    SF4 · 09/05/2017 at 10:22

    He will be up there.

    Ranked1 · 09/05/2017 at 12:05

    Hard to say but mighty tempting

    Tibor · 09/05/2017 at 12:26

    Hard to know what the swannies even are at the moment let alone get a clear idea where Heeny fits…if the swans become a good side for the rest of the year then I reckon Heeny will go alright but if they are mediocre I don't see him as a shining light in an also ran outfit

    Danners · 09/05/2017 at 14:20

    Maybe in the future, but not yet like SF4 said he may be up there

Thomas · 09/05/2017 at 10:25

Thoughts on Hampton and Butler to Rance and Yeo? Both round 12 bye players in which i only have 1 premo out atm

    INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 10:41

    Lock that in

Motor mouth · 09/05/2017 at 10:44

Who to trade out first. Stewart or Newman? Both have low BE's. I thought both have been ok and I was particularly surprised when Newman was dropped – again. Newman has a higher average so tempted to trade out Stewart but with McVeigh back in and Allir waiting in the wings what hope does Newman have of kick starting his career.
What do you think boys and girls?

    INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 11:22

    I think Stewart has a much better chance of getting back in. I think Newman has had his chance & horse didn't like what he saw

      neilDemons Delight · 09/05/2017 at 11:57

      When is Daics going come in Pies looks good like his old man

        INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 12:03

        Little Daics will line up soon Neil. He's a jet. He's a good user of the ball & the Pies need some of those. Might replace Treloar

          neilDemons Delight · 09/05/2017 at 12:33

          don't say that mate is he right or left footed and will he get games with the knew coach

    neilDemons Delight · 09/05/2017 at 11:55

    Newman turns it over too much Horse hates that and loves allir Stewart unlucky to go out not great but the best they have

Benjamin B · 09/05/2017 at 11:39

Zach tuohy or Alex rance?

I wanted shaw or williams however the above two work better for bye rounds

    Danners · 09/05/2017 at 14:18

    Rance, a proven premo

DavidSA · 09/05/2017 at 12:22

@Derek

My promo shopping list atm

Wines after his bye, at any time when bottomed out.
Dusty one more week to bottom out.
Merrett tempting me for selection this week has bottomed out.
I wanted Bont but I can't yet see how I can get him under 600k around the byes he is a jet.

Pieman identified Robbie Gray but I'm not convinced he is 100% atm. Wingard is a real smokey after the bye great POD for F6.
Have a lot written down on which rookies who need to absolutely stay in "my" team and which to get rid of but at the right price.
Marchbank and McGrath are vital to my bench, Butler has solid job security as does Houston & possibly Barrett now.
SPP, Fisher, Parsons, Newman, Stewart, Eddy if he playes atleast plays 2 more games will be rdy for culling.

    INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 13:15

    Robbie Gray is carrying a groin complaint. And his standard deviation this year if off the charts. Unlikely I'd consider him. I was actually using that as a decoy for Wines which you've picked up on. I've got the same opinion on Bont. I'd love to get him but it's too much to pay this season. I'll sideswap to him when a premo mid goes down. 4 sub 100's in a row from Dusty has me concerned he's carrying a problem. Keep an eye on that

      DavidSA · 09/05/2017 at 14:09

      Cheers mate about Martin, never knew that have to watch more games

Dnoyes · 09/05/2017 at 12:29

Mitch Robinson is out for 10 weeks with a foot injury. Good news for anyone with Barrett or Berry

    INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 12:58

    As a Barrett owner that is pleasing. Gun Midfielders around the country will be pleased he's out to. He would probably have been sent to Tom Mitchell this week

      Holty · 09/05/2017 at 13:56

      Lol was about to say the same thing. Still cant believe he shut down Kennedy with a broken foot. Guess thats how good of a tagger he is

        Daniel Z · 10/05/2017 at 11:53

        He's been one of the bright spots for the Lions over the past couple seasons.
        I wasn't happy to see him leave Carlton because of his style of play but the move seems to have reinvigorated him.

Boltons Blues · 09/05/2017 at 12:43

Hampton and Otten > Shaw and Rance

ahhh feels good to do that (may change pending Mcneice and Newman selections)

Jono · 09/05/2017 at 12:46

Currently my defence comprise Laird, Adams, Rance, Lloyd, Marchbank and Hampton who I am trading but for who?
I have $541 to spend on a defender. I must avoid a player with the round 13 bye so therefore, Heater etc are out of the equation. I am looking at:
Simpson, [email protected], be 54,
JJ, [email protected], be 101,
Zac Jones, [email protected], be 34, or, my Sharkish move, and yes, he has the round 9 bye,
Harbrow, [email protected], be 48.
He is in fine form after missing the first two matches. Hopefully this will assist other wondering who to get for Hampton, Newton etc

    INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 13:18

    Just had a look at Harbrow's numbers for this season. Wow. Certainly something to consider post bye

      Dildor · 09/05/2017 at 13:25

      Shhhh, has been on my list for 3 rounds

      Jono · 09/05/2017 at 13:48

      Hi Pieman. As you know one needs to take a moderate risk and I have been too conservative. My rank is ordinary so going for two league wins.
      I can carry Harbrow without a problem at this stage and barring injury I will have an ok team for round 9 plus $93k to start a kitty.
      I am always interested in your comments, Derek and – what has happened to Sarah from 2016.?

Holty · 09/05/2017 at 13:06

Ive seen enough of Yeo now and i think its time to bring him in. Even if he only manages 95-100 average from here on, with his rd12 bye, i still see it as value.

    pod · 09/05/2017 at 13:11

    I think Yeo will start getting some attention from opposition coaches. How good is he with a tag?

      Holty · 09/05/2017 at 13:34

      Just like everyone else i guess. Not many handle the tag well. Problem is, you cant tag everyone from the Eagles. Shuey will almost certainly cop most of the attention. Look at Sloane, everyone praising him for his fantastic start to the season and he finally cops some attention on the weekend and he struggles. What i like about Yeo is even if he does get tagged one week, he seems to go large the following week. Im happy to take that risk

    INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 13:16

    I agree with you now as well. Main target for me this week. Or he's going to be too expensive soon

      Beezneez · 09/05/2017 at 16:16

      Was my target along with Rocky and Doc. but now looking at Heeney to save one downgrade trade to get them.

hedski · 09/05/2017 at 13:11

BVC must be having a well earned week off with no rookies around this week…..

    INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 13:37

    He deserves it. Not much on offer this week

Little nicko · 09/05/2017 at 13:15

After this weeks trades how many rookies will everyone have in their field? I will have 3
Marchbank, butler and spp

    INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 13:29

    I don't consider Otten a rookie. He's 28 & been around a long time. But I will be moving him on at some point. Marchbank SPP & Balic for me

    Holty · 09/05/2017 at 13:47

    Is this your question or are you asking how many non premiums do we have on field?

    whatyasmokin · 09/05/2017 at 14:28

    Marchbank, McGrath, GHS, Butler.

    Dusty Spurs · 09/05/2017 at 14:31

    I have 4; Marchbank, Pepper/Taranto, Butler and one of Newman/Melican/Stewart

    Kyle · 09/05/2017 at 14:35

    Marchebank, otten, SPP, houston and butler.

Paul · 09/05/2017 at 13:44

Thoughts please:
Beams to Yeo. Or should I be holding beams? This is the only way i can afford Yeo this week.
Thank you.

    INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 14:05

    Beams was listed yesterday as 1 week. Today it's been changed to 1-2 weeks. I can see where this is going. Get rid of him

      Beezneez · 09/05/2017 at 16:11

      +1. Traded him to Pendlebury last week cos I had 7 outs – that went well. Thinking of trading Butler to Yeo (on my never list from previous seasons) this week nut looking at Heeney cos he is much cheaper which will allow me to save a trade in getting Docherty as my 4th defence premo.

    Danners · 09/05/2017 at 14:19

    Yeo is not a must have, like Pieman said, he needs to go though

Sherrin Sniffers · 09/05/2017 at 13:50

Is it time to jump off Treloar? Thinking of a trade to Pendles or Merrit?

    INPieman · 09/05/2017 at 14:06

    Treloar is in doubt to play this week. He's been carrying something. It's called a foot that can't kick!

      Beezneez · 09/05/2017 at 18:27

      Love it!

    Babo · 09/05/2017 at 14:31

    You'd be mad as a cut snake if after the 2 games rest he came good.

Steeeve · 09/05/2017 at 13:50

My forward line is terrible.
Dahl, Macrae, Nank (good)
Butler, Balic, Parsons (bad — extra bad, all on field!!!)
Hannan, Eddy (worse than bad)

But I'm holding firm. Bringing in TJ Lynch after his bye then waiting for N Roo and Buddy (both round 11). If any real bargains pop up in the mean time like a JJK I will consider.

Just hoping three of those rookies can stay in their sides! And putting up with the 80 points the trio will likely manage between them per week.

LoganJosh7 · 09/05/2017 at 14:17

no rookie scout report?

Rabbits16 · 09/05/2017 at 15:18

    hedski · 09/05/2017 at 15:42

    Possibility of Russian hackers influencing Gazzas score…..I'm sure the rabble at CD/HS have it sorted Rabbits.

    Trainer · 09/05/2017 at 18:06

    Take a chill pill mate. Why worry about something that hasn't happened. If I said yes, it will affect the SC scores are you going to trade out PA/GCS players. Of course not.

      whatyasmokin · 09/05/2017 at 20:05

      Agree completely.

    As long as Eddy gets a game I'll be happy.

John · 09/05/2017 at 17:44

Neale-Bullen to Heeney and Ottens to Harbrow? Cant squeeze the $ to Jones. Thoughts?

D.Swallow not on the plane to the Orient

    redherringfc · 09/05/2017 at 19:35

    don't they fly out tomorrow?

    redherringfc · 09/05/2017 at 19:49

    my mistake

Jamie Gotti · 09/05/2017 at 18:17

Is it time for a Treloar sideways trade? Zerret? Macrae? Yeo? I know you should sell high but…

    Don't Blush Baby · 09/05/2017 at 18:43

    A luxury trade only , you may have to accept 70 – 90's for awhile , there should be other issues to tend to I would have thought

Zac Fisher definitely needs to go cause he's gonna go down to the Seconds and likely return in 5 weeks or so is what I'm told

Option 1: Newman and Fisher ( leaves me with 450k )
Option 2: SPP and Fisher ( leaves me with 500K )

Who to bring in?

Matze · 09/05/2017 at 20:13

Hey all not sure who to bring in this week. Painting the fence with Otten and Hampton out.

Team currently is
Def – shaw laird Adams marchbank otten Hampton (Newman Stewart)
Mid – danger Fyfe pendles Oliver titch JPK Lloyd SPP (Barrett fisher hibberd)
Ruck – martin grundy (strnadica)
Fwd – Dahlhaus nank Steele butler Houston parsons (Hannan eddy)

Kinda lost but wanna dump otten and Hampton and thoughts are either to bring in Bont and Melican or two and melican or other. Any advice? Thanks in advance!

    Matze · 09/05/2017 at 20:14

    Will have 843k for two players…

      Jake.B · 09/05/2017 at 20:36

      Trade Hampton and put Lloyd to defence then pick up a rookie mid?

      Dean · 10/05/2017 at 00:03

      Yes I totally agree with Jake on that, better off having Lloyd in defence not in your midfield, you can get much better scoring output from premo midfielders mate, that is a very smart move by Jake.

      Just do it, you cannot go wrong.

        Matze · 10/05/2017 at 07:02

        Yea so if I traded otten and Hampton moved hibberd and Lloyd to defence and then picked up Bont and a mid rook that would work right?

    JohndJames · 10/05/2017 at 00:25

    Have you thought about keeping Otten for now,trade out Hampton,move Lloyd to Hampton's spot,trade in Bont for Lloyd and trade out Hannan for Yeo,then Parsons can go to the pine.If you have enough cash that is,If not just do what you had planed Hampton and Otten out for Melican and Bont and moving Lioyd to defence.

      Matze · 10/05/2017 at 07:01

      Yea I won't have enough cash for two premos. I can get Bont this week and then yeo next week?

        JohndJames · 10/05/2017 at 11:57

        Hi Matze,looking at your team,if it was me,I would be,for now,trading out Hampton for Melican or McNiece,if named.Then trade out Houston who has been dropped for the China game,for Yeo.Then next week trade Otten for Bont,by moving Lloyd to defence when you trade out Otten.My main reason for this is Yeo is supposed to go up more in price than Bont this week.

Dean · 09/05/2017 at 23:54

I really want to get rid of Otten & Hampton this week, which I can do by bringing in Simpson & Yeo via DPP (McGrath) however Yeo will then end up in my midfield, so I will have to bring in a MID/FWD rookie in at some point even if he doesn't play because I want Yeo in my FWD line by the end of round 13 – Fingers crossed a new MID/FWD rookie gets called up soon.

Here is my current team:
MY CURRENT TEAM IS:
DEF: Laird, Shaw, Otten, Marchbank, Hampton, Newman (Stewart, EVW)
MID: Sloane, Bont, Danger, Pendles, Titch, Heppell, Fyfe, Pepper (McGrath, Barrett, Fisher)
RUCK: Sandi, Nank (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Lynch, WHE, Butler, Houston (Eddy, Parsons)

Any other suggestions community.

    JohndJames · 10/05/2017 at 00:08

    Have you thought about trading out Houston for Yeo and keeping otten for another week.Port play in China,Adelaide play at home.Also I would be trading in Adams before Simpson.

      Dean · 10/05/2017 at 17:51

      Thanks for your idea's mate, yeah I thought heavily about trading Houston for Yeo but Ottens & Hampton have reached their maximum with their B/E being 90 – Houston could make his B/E of 62 as his average is higher so even if he doesn't make his B/E he won't lose much at all as opposed to the two Crows players if they end up having average games then they will lose a lot more and this year every dollar counts as its not going to be easy to get to full premo by the end of the bye rounds.

      Adams doesn't suite my bye structure unfortunately as his bye is in round 13

      If you look at my midfield, it looks ok now, however in R13 – I'll only have Danger & BONT playing and Yeo if I chose to go ahead with my trades this week in Simpson & Yeo

      Dean · 10/05/2017 at 19:18

      With Houston dropped from Round 8 – I will now have to trade him out for Yeo

    Kyle · 10/05/2017 at 00:56

    If you have yeo in your mids, when you have a forward rookie you are ready to trade sub yeo into forward and then just bring in a rookie mid. No need to bring in a fwd/mid dpp juat to move yeo.

      Dean · 10/05/2017 at 18:17

      Thanks Kyle great thinking, sometimes I over think and things like you just mentioned go way over my head. That makes the move so much easier.
