I'm already looking at non playing defence rookies. That's where the cash cows have been. Any players on your radars who might get a game later in the year?

OldOcker

Luke Ryan

lok

benny ronke

iLoveNMFC

Ryan of the Luke variety.

TheScacman

Scharenberg from the pies got 30 touches in the backline, would be looking to bring him in once he gets into the 1s

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

Shai Bolton from the Tigers is hitting some form now.

Kev

Kicked 7 in 4 games in my career mode on AFL Evolution. Get him in Dimma!

Dildor

Watched him play in the 2's on the weekend. Looked very dangerous every time he touched the ball, runs hard and tackles, expect to see him in the 1's sooner rather than later.

mzd

Did you go school ? He said non – playing defenders

RobDog

Willie Riolli is not far off fit.

David C

Mark O’Connor has been named for Geelong

Cogla13

That probably means Stewart won't be back anytime soon.

TheGerman

Stewart named as well!

Xan

Do I get buddy or heeney

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

Cheapest we'll see Buddy for a while, Heeney not yet proven.

SirSamuel016

Definitely Buddy. He's the cheapest we'll see him for a while and he should finish a top 6 forward.

DefyingMadness

Heeney

pod

Buddy first, higher ceiling

iLoveNMFC

Is Heeney a top 6 forward?

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

No. Dahlhaus, McCrae, Kennedy, Lynch, Franklin, Riewoldt, Greene, Nankervis and even Yeo all ahead of him.

pod

Agree, he's not at this stage.

TheScacman

Has the potential to score minimum 85 most weeks, will ton up in plenty. Will be more consistent than JPK, Lynch and possibly even Franklin. Could be worth waiting a week to see how he scores

DefyingMadness

Think he could be

SirSamuel016

Weighing up a couple of trade options for this week.
Option 1: Treloar and Otten/Hampton for Bont and Adams
Option 2: Otten and Hampton for Adams and another one.
I have 353k in the bank so I'm up for ideas on who I should bring in other than Adams too.

Lee

Heath Shaw ,Rockliff ,Sloane and Bont good if you have the money.Keep Treloar trade Hampton and Ottens

Sauce

I would go Hampton and otten out for either rance, Docherty, Adams, laird, Roberton

SirSamuel016

Already got Rance and Docherty. Trading those two out and bringing in Adams leaves me 492.7k left for another player.

hedski

Heater

SirSamuel016

Got Shaw already as well

hedski

Cool sry mate, easier if you say who ya have 😉

SirSamuel016

That's a vaild point xD
Here's the team: http://i.imgur.com/dmXo2oM.png

redherringfc

There's a few interesting players you could get for 492k.

if you can switch positions, using dpp, and consider any position then, Parker? Johannisen? big Sauce? TMacdonald, Goldy, Shaw.

All have good history.

redherringfc

If i had your money I'd go Otten, Hampton to Adams and Heeney. Unfortunately i'm 20k short.

Definitely get Adams.

Tyruddanaut

Option 2

SF4

Trade out Hampton and Otten. Bring in Jake Lloyd and Taylor Adams, those would be 2 very solid trades.

wightyswarriors

SC101….again…never sideways trade a gun unless injured…remember hanneberry this year ?

JohndJames

Treloar can no longer be considered a gun.

JohndJames

Option one wins hands down,Treloar and Hampton for Bont and Adams.

Gags

Roberton or Adams??

pod

Adams DPP

Sauce

Adams

Tyruddanaut

Adams

Gags

cheers

SF4

Adams

TheScacman

Bringing in McNiece this week to free up some cash, Hampton and Otten to go.

Either:
1. Yeo – top 6 forward almost guaranteed, even with Yeo-Yeo type scoring
2. Heeney – Looks good coming back from glandular, tons in his past 2 games and 70K cheaper than Yeo
3. Bont – hard to find cheaper than this for the rest of the year, does blow out all my cash

Lee

The Bont easily as more captain options

Swans2012

Bloody David bloody swallow, was always going to hold you to help me through the bloody byes but this is pushing the boundaries. David I don't know whether I can swallow this any longer….

INPieman

Spit the Swallow

SC17

Weighing up a few trade options this week.

Option 1: Hampton and Steele for Buddy(via DPP) and McNiece/Berry
Option 2: Hampton and Steele for Yeo(via DPP) and McNiece/Berry
Option 3: Hampton and Steele for JJK(via DPP) and McNiece/Berry

Have $328K in bank so open to any suggestions on who to trade.

DacZawson

Surely you have more pressing issues than Jack Steele?
Make sure Otten, Butler, Houston, SPP etc. are gone before you even think about trading Steele.

SC17

I have Otten, SPP, Taranto, Hampton, Barrett, WHE, Black

hedski

No stress then

SF4

Steele is averaging 90, there is no need to get rid of him.

Mitchell

What are everyone's predictions for the finishing top 6 Defenders?

Sauce

Docherty, Adams, Laird, Roberton, Rance, Lloyd

TBone

Doc, Adams, Laird, Shaw, Rance, Lloyd

Sc_hart

Touhy will be in the conversation

Tyruddanaut

Docherty, Adams, Laird, Robertson, Johannisson, Simmo

whatyasmokin

Docherty, Laird, Adams, Roberton, Simpson, Lloyd.

Kyle

Doc adams laird simpson JJ rance

Gut says Roberton is gonna slow right down soon. Maybe top 6 for the year because of all the points he has scored so far but not top 6 from here till end of season.

beef fc

Docherty
Adams
Laird
Lloyd
Williams
Johannisen

lok

Doc, Adams, Laird, Shaw, Roberton, Lloyd

SF4

Doc, Laird, Adams, Lloyd, Shaw and Roberton.

Danners

Great work lads, hope Shanghai treating you well. I have the same view as Jock on the Bont which is why he will be coming in for me this week. After getting some cash in the bank last week, it's time to spend it with the trades I'm doing are
Hampton to Doc
Houston to Bont
which leaves me with $211k in the bank.
Probably overspent on them both but after a couple of crap rounds, I need to make some ground up.
Thoughts?

INPieman

Danners. Post your team & your warchest & trade numbers. On face value I think your making a mistake

Danners

Making a mistake? I'm interested why, my team before trades
DEF: Shaw, Laird, Otten, Hampton, Williamson, Newman (Macreadie, EVW)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Fyfe, Parker, Titch, Adams, SPP, Balic (Fisher, Barrett, Pickett)
RUCK: Grundy, Sandilands (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Buddy, Nank, WHE, Houston (Hannan, Parsons)
$801k in the bank as hard as it is to admit, I have 20 trades left before doing anything

redherringfc

surely he's joking. the trades are a no-brainer.

INPieman

DEF: Shaw (Williams killing him), Laird (tick), Otten (not a keeper), Hampton (needs to go), Williamson (good bench option), Newman (finshed, horse hates him) (Macreadie (not playing), EVW (couldn't score on tinder)
MID: Danger (tick), Pendles (tick), Fyfe (tick), Parker (will come good), Titch (tick), Adams (tick), SPP (has to go), Balic (has to go eventually) (Fisher (injured), Barrett (Pray he holds his spot) , Pickett (shit)
RUCK: Grundy (F'd by Cox), Sandilands (pray he keep a tick) (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahlhaus (tick), Macrae (tick), Buddy (tick), Nank (tick), WHE (cash out asap), Houston (away you go) (Hannan (shit), Parsons (yuk)

Look to get rid of 50-60 type players onfield to fallen premiums that can score 100+

hedski

I ticked when I got to EVW.

INPieman

Get Yeo & Simmo this week. And more value next week

Danners

Wow, I appreciate the full review Pieman, Simpson is an option I've been tossing up, but I still have my doubts on Yeo, he could get the job done just 50/50 on him at the moment will probably research him more this week. Still I can't see Bont falling in price for while. A lot to think about…

Randomcliche2

Hey, much less qualified than INPieman, but yeah, I'm of the view with 800k you should be trying for 5 out of your next 6 next trades as upgrades, looking for value and bye round impact. Like many teams you are heavy on rnd 13 players Def/Mid and Rnd 11 fwd. So I'd be looking McGov/Rance/Yo-Yo this week with perhaps Jelwood + Myers next week, plus 2 GCS/Port the week after, whoever takes your fancy. That will take you to 19 premo's leading into the byes with plenty of spread across each week, while getting value and some players with lower ownership (except Yo-Yo) in the top 100. (Otten+Hampton this week, Houston+WHE next, with Newman to follow close behind)

INPieman

Pick off value. You'll end up with more premos. Keep an eye on JPK. Started last season the same as this & went crazy after that. Turned his 102 AV into 119! Grabbing guys at 500K will give you more premos & faster

Sauce

Superb

Brian

Getting in the doc and the Bont is definitely worth the extra cash. But why not trade out Pickett. He has absoluely no use. Houston could be very useful during the byes. He gets 60 every week so won't loose much and will probably go up in value if anything.

Danners

I probably could, although that means I'm using another $120k. I still have a feeling that he could get a run sometime

Kyle

I would be careful about splashing out extra $$$ on premos danners. Need to make sure you get to full premo asap and that means looking for value this year. For every 600k you spend on the bont, you need to find a keeper for around 440k to compensate for the big spend. While the trade may look good on paper, it nay negatively impact your team in the weeks to come.

Zorko, JJ, simpson, JPK, Yeo, dusty, even players like selwood or stef martin in a few weeks are all players to keep a close eye on.

whatyasmokin

So with your theory of maximum spend on keepers being around 500K……………..how are you going to get players like Bontempelli at all?

Kyle

Maths is a little wrong there whatyasmoking, At this stage the premos i bring in are around the 520-550k range. I wont be bringing bont in till i have the luxury of a full premo team and just upgrading from there. And there is still players like JJ at 460k. Zorko, stef martin JPk and the like who are gonna be around 520k or even lower so im looking to bring them in soon aswell. Then there is selwood with a BE of 180 so he is gonna drop aswell. Very possible to reach full premo as long as you dont over spend on players. Bringing in bonts and sloans will make it harder to reach full premo.

Even the bont could have a bad game or two and drop to a better price for me. Just look at sloane last week.

I dont think 540k is an unreasonable budget this year. Maybe im looking at it the wrong way but thats just what i think.

Id bring in Zerrett and JJ over bont and doc. Saves an extra 200k to straight swap another 2 plump cows to premo next week aswell.

jimmy

basically my team has been severely under performing so i need some help on where i can improve

DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Howe, Marcbank, Hampton, EVW (Stewart, Newman)
MID: Rockliff, Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Ablett, Fyfe, Priddis, Mundy, Balic (Barret, Fisher, Fox)
RUCK: Nankervis, Sandilands (Strandica)
FWD: Macrae, JJK, Greene, Butler, Houstan, Hardwick (Parsons, Eddy)

have 24 trades and 610k in the bank what can i do to improve my team Help!!!!!!!

Mike

Get the bont and t adams in your side

Sauce

houston to buddy and Hampton to Docherty

Juzzy

Agree with Mike, but the way money and rooks are going I would strongly consider Shaw and Franklin this week.

May leave you with some vital cash to fill a few other holes down the track.

whatyasmokin

Hampton>Simpson

Houston>Yeo

wightyswarriors

with 610k in the bank..thats one premo..of course your underperforming

Sauce

Mcniece or Berry PLEASE HELP

Lazza

McNiece is a LTI elevated rookie … will be heading back to the VFL when Laverde returns ….

FizzEm

berry. his JS is far more superior. at this point you need blokes who will play.

Loop

Laverde is listed as being out for 8 weeks, surely McNeice – if he comes back in – can make some cash in that time.

Derek

Berry isn't that good

whatyasmokin

Neither

wightyswarriors

Watson and McGrath to come back..Mcneice js not good

BlueNath

Berry has better js and scoring potential. So Mcniece! Because all normal SC logic has failed me so far this year

Lee

Get Heath Shaw for Hampton and get Franklin for Houston

Sc_hart

Really struggling last 2 weeks, probably not alone but would like sone thoughts on my team

Laird Docherty adams touhy otten hampton newman stewart
Danger selwood pendles treloar fyfe jpk spp barret Fisher hibberd miles
Martin sandi preuss
Dahl lynch nank whe butler parson balic eddy

I have endurered some rookie and underperforming pain, currently ranked around 6000 24 trades and 275k

Otten to Lloyd and maybe hampton to berry or mcneice??
Penny for your thoughts

GTrain

Hampton to Berry, Miles (injured) to Heeney

Cogla13

No cash being generated. I'd go Otten/Hampton to McNeice if named (I don't like him but you are desperate) and then Miles/Fisher/Hibberd to Myers one week early. That gives you bench cover in the midfield and money to spend next week.

KRAM

I've got the cash to get the bont, however, with the lack of rookies available cash will become very important. So I've decided to get priddis instead. Looked at his last two years and he always seems to hit form around this time and average 115+. Thoughts?

INPieman

Prid always ends up cheap. And then delivers for you. Always. The lack of a good ruck is a concern. But I like the move lots

whatyasmokin

Priddis is a great buy and nobody notices him. He is cruising along scoring quite well this year.

TOPHAWK1

Hi community,

Trades planned for this week are based around preparing for the byes and at the same time pushing to be at full premo by round 12.

I am looking for youth and value for money after trading in old boy Heath Shaw last week.

HAMPTON OUT for either Mutimer or Myers (1 week early). Mutimer was very impressive against Port for his 60 odd. Was prepared to be physically involved to get the pill and demonstrated agressive tackling. (Via DPP)

BEAMS OUT for YEO. Will watch Pendles and Treloar (fitness) for another week.

Cheers

Tyruddanaut

If either rookie is placed on the extended bench don't take them. But otherwise I agree with your justifications

TOPHAWK1

I agree. If named on the extended bench it = non selection.

Derek

Have a look at WCE next 6 games, especially their home games. We know they struggle away from home, but their next 3 home games will also be tough.

Does Yeo's position suite some tough games? Does he play in defence? Might be a good play.

TOPHAWK1

I watched Yeo very closely against Port last weekend and this bloke has gone to the next level IMO. He looked bloody awesome. Fast, imposing, versatile, and powerful. I think he will revel in tough matches. Bulldogs, GWS and Geelong will be a great test for the eagles at home, but I reckon Yeo will hold his own and some. Cheers

TOPHAWK1

And at $525 K his price is still reasonable and within my premo range. As you mentioned in an earlier post, the poor quality of the rooks means less cash generation. There is no way I am coughing up $600K plus for premo players like Sloane, Bontempelli, Rockliff etc at this time of the season. Looking for value. (Heath Shaw last week, Hannebery 3 weeks ago etc)

Going to watch Pendles and Treloar with interest this week. If Treloar is injured or misses this week and Pendles pumps out a 120+ I will do a straight switch. Pendles slightly more expensive than now (BE 90) but at $575K that is VALUE for money. It means I secure an ultra premo below $600K and partially offset the loss incurred on Treloar. Time will tell if it will play out like that though.

INPieman

The children's story last week was Awesome!

Juzzy

Already have Bont Kram but am strongly considering Priddis this week.

His bye is a blessing for me as well.

Derek

Yes.

My 2 targets have been JPK and Pendles. But Priddis is my next in line.

They have a run of tough home games, I can see him racking up some big tackle numbers

Sellars1220

DEF: Docherty, Laird, Hurley, McGrath, Newman, EVW ( Stewart, Scharenburg )
MID : Danger, Ablett, Bont, Rockcliff, Pendles, Fyfe, SPP, Fisher ( Bolton, Jarman, Bayok )
RUC : Grundy, Sandilands ( Cameron )
FWD : Dahl, JJK, Nank, Ryder, Steele, Hanan ( Eddy, Smith )

Zac Fisher definitely needs to go cause he's not gonna get any game time

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

Or any other suggestions of who to trade in/out would be gladly appreciated!

Thoughts?

DacZawson

You really need a warm body on field so I'd suggest going early on Myers for Fisher or even Mutimer if desperate and go Newman to McNiece if he gets named.

Good luck!!!

Sellars1220

Cheers mate

bighawk76

Sandilands or Nank for ruck????

Tyruddanaut

Nank

finnigin

melican may still be an option ? thoughts,

Tyruddanaut

Poor JS but if he plays this week I would strongly consider him

whatyasmokin

Boat missed.

Ken

Thoughts on joke Lloyd? He needs a lot of the pill just to score 100… Is he a good option with everyone coming back at Sydney (Mcveigh already back) , Newman ….when does Rampe come back??

whatyasmokin

Jake Lloyd gets the pill whoever is in the team and runs all day.

Derek

Rampe listed as 2 weeks

whatyasmokin

From rounds 20 to the GF last year both were in the team and both were scoring well. He also tonned up many times earlier in the year with Rampe in the team.

You over analyze people coming back in.

#RobMitch

Good News supercoaches Mitch Robinson is Out for 10 Week Yes 10 that bloody brisbane tagged is Gone Now we will see some solid SC against the lions.

PhilDev10

Baby's come from Vachina.. Assuming you pass the Rubiks cube challenge. Gold again boy's

hedski

Shit I thought Pendles missus popped when I started reading that post.

Tyruddanaut

I'm wondering whether to go for The Bont or Robertson this week. So far my structures would be more forgiving on Dylan Robertson but I would also like a higher point generator.
So far the amount of rookies on field from Def – Fwd are 3-2-0-1 so Roberton will change it to 2-2-0-1 or currently because of rookie options and Dahl's DPP 2-1-0-2

TOPHAWK1

Both are valid picks, but both are at very inflated price points.

If you had to pick one, just grab the Bont, and pay the big bucks for his scoring output.

I am not entertaining either this week. Far too expensive. Looking for value for cash, because of the spawn of crap rookies YTD.

Cheers

Danners

Just like Jock said, Bont will turn out to be a must have so bring him in before Roberton

bob the builder

Upgrade Otten and Hold Hampton or
downgrade Hampton and hold Otten??

TOPHAWK1

Hold Otten and remove Hampton from your side.

whatyasmokin

Yep

Holty

Agreed

Tyruddanaut

Love his stories. Got me laughing my head off every week

TBone

Hey guys, just thought I'd post up my team and some trade options for this week in the hope I could get some advice to put this season back on track.

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

Danger, Pendles, Fyfe, Wines, JPK, Treloar, SPP, Barrett (Bowes, Pickett, Fisher)

Grundy, Sandi (Strnadica)

Dahl, Macrae, Nank, Petracca, Butler, Balic (Parsons, Eddy)

1. Hampton and Hibberd to Lloyd and Berry (mainly to avoid an 0 if stewart and newman dont play)

2. Hampton and Petracca to Lloyd and Buddy

3. Hampton and Treloar to Lloyd and Doc (Swing Lloyd from mids to def to cover newman and stewart via hibberd)

4. Hampton and Treloar to Bont and Lloyd (cop 0 if stewart and newman not named) would still have 105k left in kitty

Any other suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated fellow coaches. Cheers!

whatyasmokin

3.

TBone

cheers, was swinging that way. would pick adams but doesnt suit my bye structure

Rivo

Yep 3 looks good.

Lazza

I'd be keeping Treloar … he is still a Premo … only trade out when you get to full 22 Premo's.

Option 2 is a win win.

TBone

fair point. If newman or stewart doesnt play is it worth doing that and taking the 0 in defence?

Cogla13

Too many non playing rookies means no cash generation. Suggest getting rid of Pickett, even if he comes back in he won't make money.

Tom

Zerrett or Titchell??

whatyasmokin

I like Zerrett.

Kev

Same. Higher ceiling

BlueBoy

For this week I'm not sure whether to go

Treloar to Yeo
Hampton to Z Jones

or

Treloar to Yeo
Otten to Bont (Adams from mid to def)

I think the Bont will go up by less than Jones so I can potentially get him next week, but is Jones worth the risk?

whatyasmokin

My only problem with Jones is unproven and potential role change when others come back.

Option 2.

BlueBoy

I thought about that too but who is coming in to change his role? Jack?

GTrain

Z Jones already has a role change – dashing half back to wing with 143

hedski

Hold Treloar. To early to sideways on rumours or one week on the pine.

BlueBoy

It's more the 3 scores only just over 70 in the last 4 games. These injury rumours are just poo-icing on the shit-cake. I can't see him turning it around that drastically in any reasonable amount of time.

Besides, I'll be doing everyone who holds him a favour by trading him out this week. He'll be sure to ton up.

hedski

Fair enough if ya have the trades

hedski

Check Hannas first 3 rounds…

BlueBoy

Yeah fair point.

Kane petifer

Lloyd, Roberton, or shaw?

whatyasmokin

Simpson due to low ownership.

But of your 3 choices I'd go Shaw, Lloyd, Roberton in terms of value right now.

whatyasmokin

Shaw being best value, Roberton least*

Derek

Shaw under $500k. Get him

Sellars1220

Is Nic Newman going to play again or is he a trade out

Top Gun

Big chance to come back this week

Mitch

Thoughts on trelor boys? Hold?

Danny

Scott Pendlebury or Zach Merrett?

Holty

If you are trading this week, Merrett. If after the birth of Pendles Jr, then Pendles

Matt

Can anyone tell me how much buddy will go up if he scores 80 this week?

Pinger

Approx 22k

INPieman
INPieman

Rather http://tooserious.net/forum/stats.php#VaEcIjsY4xy
Click on the calculator for each player & you can see there price based on scores they might get. It's a great tool. I use it alot

Finnius123

What does everyone reckon the chances are of either Newman, Stewart or Mcneice being recalled this week? Just need one of the three……….

Goat

21%, 47% and38% respectively. For what it's worth☹️

Juzzy

Very good chance that one of the three will be back Mate.

Rivo

Stewart most likely to come back in. The others rely more on injuries to come in.

INPieman

Newman 0%, McNeice 60%, Stewart 60%

Bitta

rip into me u want community, but if Wingard (yes, mr. inconsistent) keeps playing predominately midfield, he could be a genuine option!

Juzzy

No ripping from me Bitta.

Loving his midfield role. As long as he doesn't die from dust storms/ humidity/ deep vein thrombosis etc..etc..(loving the medias freakout) I am looking to get him in post bye.

Oliver

With $738k, should I go Bont, Oliver or Zerrett? Other considerations were Hanners & Cripps.

I figured I probably will have to pass on Bont purely because I'm not sure I will have enough cash generation in the future – I have Newman and Stewart in the back line.

Thanks community!

Lazza

The only reason to not get Bont (yet) is how it will impact you in R11. Definitely coming into my team R12.

pod

If not the Bont MUST be Zerrett

Rivo

Another stellar podcast lads.
With Karl's & others great wisdoms, I have the trade plan order as below. Have 21 trades and $308k. Currently premo set up as 3,7,2,3 (M.Crouch at M7).

1. Otten & Houston to Simpson & Heeney. Leaves $5k, adds premo to D4 and F4;

2. Otten & Hampton to Simpson & Rance, leaves only $3k but D1-5 premo;

3. Treloar & Otten to Bont & T. Adams. Leaves $61k, adds premo to D4, correction trade on Treloar.

To get Bont & Adams means burning Treloar. Is it worth it or do I stick with Option 1?

Finnius123

Prefer option 1 – Treloar is still going to have a higher output than a rookie so you should hold him at least until his bye

Rivo

Thanks Finnius. What if Treloar is out injured? There is a strong rumour suggesting so.

Rivo

And another left field option..

Hampton & Fisher to Bont & McNiece, leaves $63k, SPP to bench, run either Stewart or EVW on field. However miss out on Heeney & Simmo at cheaper prices.

whatyasmokin

2. Heeney is unproven.

Rivo

Heeney may need to come in as Houston looks to be not traveling to China!

Jimmy

Playing as a midfielder since late last season so should be a fantastic option for the money although getting another round 11 bye keeper is terrible for your bye structures.

Rivo

Thanks Jimmy. With Houston out this week it's sounding like Option 1. If Treloar doesn't play I can swing Barrett on field or even DPP Ballic to run Parsons at F6. Byes aside, it can work.

So it looks like it may be Otten & Houston to Simpson & Heeney.

Rivo

However, if Pendles and Treloar are out, then maybe Bont comes in under Option 3. SC doing my head in!!!

Joshua

Hampton to Mcniece (if named, might have to go someone like Berry if he isn't) and Otten to Adams is the go this week for me.

Lazza

Ditto

VARC

Apologies for repost but always seem to post just as new article comes up!

Thoughts on the below for two week trading plan:

1. Hampton to Berry/Melican and Beams to Rocky

2. JOM to Myers and either Butler or SPP to fwd/mid at about 510k

Means that I'd have to play Berry/Melican on-field this week (assuming Stewart and Newman not named) and have to hold JOM for another week – if he plays he starts, if not it's Barrett on-field.

Thoughts community, is there a better option out there? I have Bont and Pendles in the mids, along with Danger, Fyfe and Hannebery. Really like Rockliff's point scoring ability, even if at 590k

whatyasmokin

3. JOM needs to go. SS Melicanberry has sailed.

VARC

Would be treating Berry/Melican as expensive rookie downgrade, still potential for cash generation.

whatyasmokin

lol will cost two trades one in and one out to generate that cash. Not going to be worth it simple as that.

whatyasmokin

Why don't you do JOM to Myers for cash gen?

VARC

Still got 23 trades so am reasonably placed to bring in Melican/Berry and then wait for a better defender rookie to downgrade to down the track (I think Berry's JS is much better than someone like McNiece) – I basically need to start making some moves over the next couple of weeks!

JOM to Myers is a live option for this week but traditionally don't like trading in a player pre-bubble – Hampton's b/e has me looking to punt him this week to make the Rocky trade.

Touk tuk

I want to get hampton out but he is going to get a game every round if he keeps fit. I think he will come handy during round 11 & 12.

I think he will only lose money now until those byes. If you can trade him for a premium, i would certainly consider it.

jez_m

Seems that 103 he scored against Gold Coast was an outlier. If you've got both Hampton and Otten, then Hampton has to go first.

Uncle Toby

I guess we'll see what changes Pykey makes after a 10 goal thrashing. Hampton doesn't seem to be doing a hell of a lot out there in recent games so JS has to be in some doubt you'd think.

Derek

you will lose cash, how much cash are you willing to lose?

meph

Could somebody please tell me the ownership % of Priddis, Zach Merrett and Yeo.

jez_m

Yeo – 19.9%
Merrett – 5.3%
Priddis – 3.2%

justin-t

OMFG that many pricks own Yeo. No wonder my ranking sucks dead dog's balls.

Randomcliche

Yep ownership keeps going north in jumps! Can that many people be wrong???.

Babo

remember that a significant % of these ppl jumped on this week.

Babo

including me 🙂

Why do people think berry is going to be a cash cow at his price of $170k? It's taken him 5 matches to get there and projected for no higher than $200k for the season. I've had him from the start and it's extremely disappointing being an owner, especially the times I've had to put him on field.

INPieman

Add him to the long list a disappointing rookies. It's a massive list

SCdonkey

I see him as a good downgrade with DPP status will be handy during the bye rounds, seems to have a good JS. Like i said on my last post he still have plenty of cash to be made. His 1st two games of 46 and 50 will be out of calculation, in the last two game he scored 74 and 60 will carry on for the next couple of weeks. All he needs is get one good score and he will earn us good cash generation. At only $170K cant go wrong.

Captain Risky

I'm only looking at him as a reliable emergency that will hopefully be around all year. Don't need him to generate cash.

Looks to have good JS and DPP is a bonus. Form seems to be improving, which is better than those mongrels that start off fantastic, turn to shit and get dropped..

Derek

i had him from week one so have been watching him when i can.

he isn't that good

Ken

Kade Simpson or Jake lloyd

Danners

Simpson for reliability

David

Prefer Lloyd. Simpson's role has already changed too much for my liking this season and no reason it couldn't change again for the worse.

INPieman

As a frustrated Simpson owner this year I agree with David. His roles vary & so does his scoring

INPieman

Hearing from my sources Matt Sharenberg will line up against the Giants. Has built up awesome form in the VFL. Last week in a loss, 22 Kicks 13 Marks 12 Handballs 2 inside 50's 7 Rebound 50's 2 tackles & 82% DE. Please bring those numbers with you to the AFL Shaz!

jez_m

Hope he comes in – would be an ideal defensive downgrade!

Doubting Thomas

Not sure he's supercoach relevant mate given his price and how he basically disappeared in the JLT after all the preseason hype about him. I suppose people are so desperate for downgrade options that they are seeing mirages where there are probably only empty wells. I won't even be looking at him until he's on the bubble, if he even gets there.

INPieman

It's like that Doubting Thomas. The rookie well is so dry we are scraping for anything. It's a sad state of affairs. Beyond Meyers we can't see much coming. Scarenberg's round 13 bye is also awkward given the number of defender round 13 bye players. But anyway anyone under 200K is on table ATM

Loop

I'm hoping that Hibberd will get a game soon.

Nick

Will he get a game soon?

Maso

Not whilst they are winning games plus Mullett could return this week from injury so EVW holders better hold their collective breaths too.

Connor

It's been an infuriating season on the rookie front. You bring in some bubble boy hopeful only for him to be dropped the following week. So it's going to be a savage bye period coming up with so many non playing bench rookies this time around. Rounds 11 and 13 are going to be particularly brutal for a lot of coaches so i can envisage a lot of sideways trading of under-perfoming premos coming up to try and post some sort of respectable score and not get obliterated in the ranks during the byes.

INPieman

Your right Connor. The bye rounds will make or break teams. Those that haven't been planning will crash & burn. Relying on rookies to get you through the byes is a thing of the past

Big Kev

Indeed I've got a couple of under-performing premos earmarked as potential sideways trades during the byes to at least get something worthwhile out of those aholes.

Lazza

Except Berry hey !! … this joker is in the same boat as JOM & Swallow when it comes to staying on the park. .. a high risk option with little SC performance ….amazing how the logic varies .. … His name is spelt Scharenberg btw.

Derek

yep. have heard the same

Russty_

Problem is…how many reports of Rooks tearing it up in the VFL have we heard, and then they get a real game and turn into timid little wallflowers, hardly getting a touch?…bloody sick of em, I'd rather do 2 upgrades this week, and have less money for next week.
Someone will get injured or spud it, to enable further trading..without depending on a new unproven spud, who could easily crap their pants when they get to the big stage

INPieman

Wouldn't bring any rookie in Russ until they are about to break the bubble. Think that's important this season. See how he goes first 2

hedski

Houston and Eddy not playing in China, need Parsons to get a gig or trade plans out the window again…

Thommo

Well f*ck me the round 8 carnage has already begun!

Pissedofftothemax!

Now all I need is for Gaz to be a late out and will be stuck with 4 round 9 asswipes who aren't even playing round 8! Also have that POS Swallow and 'Where's Eddy??'

Pissedofftothemax!

And 'Houston we have a problem'

Swans2012

For me it's more Houston we have a loophole

Pissedofftothemax!

Glad it's good news for someone. I've got Eddy and Pickett on my forward bench and no real cash to upgrade Houston so am looking at the likes of Black or Parsons as crappy options that they are. Can't remember a more shitstained season!

Adam

Hey it could be worse you could have Patch's side who posted an excruciating 1648 on the weekend. So there are always folks doing it harder than yourself.

INPieman

1648 Geez. Remind me never to go to New Zealand. That really is a bye round score. Patch won't be happy with that

jez_m

Houston to miss this weekend – http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-05-10/houston-we-

DacZawson

Would people prefer Parsons or Hampton on field this week? Of course this is depending on selection.

Dice

Hampton
Got a funny feeling he will bounce back this week with a 90+ score

Zach

Whoever doesn't get dropped!

INPieman

Agree with Zach

JoshA

Going to be bringing in a defender and a midfielder this week, got 1.1 mil for them combined, looking at the bont and kade simpson but are there any better options?

JoshA

Yeo maybe an option as well to save 100k or to get doch/adams
