AFL SuperCoach 2018

G’day Community, I’m not sure what we did to the Supercoach Gods but they aren’t happy with us.

Another poor week o cash generation and premium scoring has coaches down but this is what should excite us community! Finally we have a year in which P.O.D’s have meaning, cookie cutter teams aren’t winning every week and brave captaincy options are adding intrigue to the game. I’m having fun even though my team is pretty ordinary.

Once again we are looking at value picks this week as well as who we need to cut from our sides. Cash generation is an issue so I think we’ll all be waiting for Ben Mc’Niece to be named.

In other news I’ve been posting updated Cheat Sheet’s on Twitter to show the successful and not-so-successful advice I’ve given. You can find last week’s Cheat Sheet below, let me know if you think this belongs here or on Twitter as I’ve been doing.

Hampton for Lloyd and Berry for Pickett? Swing berry frok mids to def via hibberd to cover Stewart and Newman? Or does treloar need to go?

    LEKD0G · 11/05/2017 at 12:15

    Hold Treloar, other trades look good

      TBone · 11/05/2017 at 13:02

      cheers Lekdog! cheatsheet brilliant as always mate

tybrisbane · 11/05/2017 at 09:33

Beware the bye rounds coming up boys! I'm struggling to get 18 players for round 11.

    LEKD0G · 11/05/2017 at 12:15

    Vital!

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 02:44

    I've got 15 starting at the moment for round 11, that's cool, other 2 rounds I'm fine. Byes are byes.

Mike · 11/05/2017 at 09:34

Alot of covering this week. Love using the bench every week grrr

    LEKD0G · 11/05/2017 at 12:15

    Pray for minimal carnage, look at teams, cry a lot

Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 09:46

JJK or Elliot Yeo community?

    Brayden · 11/05/2017 at 10:14

    Yeo Yeo

    INPieman · 11/05/2017 at 10:49

    Both look good options. JJK can go 180 & 50. Probably Yeo, looks in fine form

    LEKD0G · 11/05/2017 at 12:16

    JJK for mine

    neil demons delight · 11/05/2017 at 12:17

    yeo then jjk if you can afford both

    Dnoyes · 11/05/2017 at 12:22

    Personally I wouldn't pick up JJK. When going for a key forward I'd be looking to pick them up when they are cheap

    Pete · 11/05/2017 at 19:43

    Wish I had picked up Yeo weeks ago. A lot of criticism of his past history but he's only 23 years old so still yet to hit his peak I would have thought. Playing up the ground as well so more likely to get consistent results than JJK.

LoganJosh7 · 11/05/2017 at 09:54

went dusty this week! sneaky must have – cheap as chips

    LoganJosh7 · 11/05/2017 at 09:54

    best pick for bye rounds as well!!

      LEKD0G · 11/05/2017 at 12:18

      Good buy, I'll wait another week. B/E still 124

        Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 13:38

        Yeah I am going SPP next week to Dusty

        LoganJosh7 · 11/05/2017 at 14:24

        great point but with rocky on the big drop next week he was my pickup for next?

INPieman · 11/05/2017 at 10:07

I'm a bit confused Lek why you have Elliott Yeo in green as a trade in & then say he's a trap? Maybe you need a new colour for traps

    Rick Grimes · 11/05/2017 at 11:18

    I think people will continue to call Yeo a trap right up to last week, regardless of how many tons he posts. Cognitive bias.

      INPieman · 11/05/2017 at 11:45

      Agree Rick. But if he keeps playing out of defence like he has been he's a top 6 Fwd every day of the week. Can't ignore that

      neil demons delight · 11/05/2017 at 12:20

      think we are all like that rick but I am giving in think and that's it think he is ok

    LEKD0G · 11/05/2017 at 12:17

    Haha because I personally say he's a trap but logic says his form is good enough for a trade

      Derek · 11/05/2017 at 12:29

      The battle of head over heart. Cyril does that to me

        INPieman · 11/05/2017 at 12:33

        He does it Bruce to Derek

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 11/05/2017 at 12:45

        Funny isn't it the old cognitive bias.
        Forget that his name is Yeo just for the moment.
        If his name was Macrae and was scoring like he has for $525k with DPP you would bring him straight in and just assume he would finish top 1-2 fwds.
        As it is Yeo and he has a history we all hesitate.
        I like his bye rd, change of role (now WC has some backs back in) he can be the sweeper. Might even get some mid time.

        Pending selections tonight gonna bring him in to strengthen up the old fwd line.

        Or to put it another way.
        He has a similar role to Simmo who everyone is bringing in..As he represents such good value. Avg 100 last 3 weeks. Yeo avg 125.
        Yeo based on form alone should be thought of the same way.

          The Ranger · 11/05/2017 at 13:02

          I'm finding it so hard to bring him in!
          Ages ago I heard Jonathan Brown say that he was the player that Brisbane were most disappointed to lose so I started last year with him rather than Doc and that didn't pan out so well.
          If he stays in his current role then he'll score well but if Simmo starts swinging him around again those scores will drop off pretty sharply.

            TRIGGER HAPPY · 11/05/2017 at 13:07

            Much like simmo first few rounds for the blues.

            Interesting Brown dog rated him above Doc.
            Must have seem something
            Both now playing a similar role and scoring similar.

            pod · 11/05/2017 at 13:51

            A fee rounds ago Adam Simpson said Yeo will play & stay across half back.

          bUCKET__ · 11/05/2017 at 20:36

          It's not just the name Trigger: check out their scoring distribution.

          Forwards like Macrae are gold because they rack up the touches every game, tackle well enough. Very low variation in where his points come from.

          A high percentage of Yeo's scores come from *marks*. He also scores better when he can kick cleanly.

          Why's this an issue? For one, it means his scores will be more greatly affected by team performance. If there isn't team pressure up field, he's less likely to take the grabs. If he's under the pump, kicking less efficient. Possible he's asked to do a lockdown role at some point, because he has shown some promise there.

          Proof is in the two games Eagles have lost: Richmond (83sc) and Hawks (59sc).

          I reckon he'll be a top fwd (mind you, I was burned for thinking this last year). But his scoring will vary, much like other KPP who take their points elsewhere.

      Beezneez · 11/05/2017 at 15:18

      All week I had him pencilled in but am now starting to look at Heeney for value. Yeo is still predicted to be around $566 in round 13 after his bye in round 12 (according to SC Gold) – that may change of course. It's just his past yo-yo history that is always in the back of my mind. Having said that, I guess by trading him in for Butler, I'm not really losing anything. Decisions, decisions.

      Scotland · 11/05/2017 at 16:52

      He burnt me last year it's hard to go back when they've let you down, but he looks to have turned the corner.

Tim · 11/05/2017 at 10:23

Hey guys
Im new to supercoach and really stuck on what trades to do this week. I have 361k in the bank. I wanted to trade out Houston and Hampton for Yeo and Rance, but i fall 40k short. I am really lacking round 12 bye premos. Thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Def: Adams, Laird, Simmo, Otten, Marchbank, Newman (Hampton, Stewart)
Mid: Danger, Bont, Pendles, Fyfe, JPK, Treloar, Balic , SPP (Parfitt (DPP), Barratt, Fisher)
Ruc: Grundy, Sandi (Strnadica (DPP))
Fwd: Dahl (DPP), Macrae (DPP), Buddy, Butler, Houston, Parsons (Hannan, Eddy)

    LoganJosh7 · 11/05/2017 at 10:33

    go for heeney over yeo – yeo might post bigger scores but heeney (once fully fit) will be far more consistant i believe

    LoganJosh7 · 11/05/2017 at 10:34

    or if youre set on yeo go for mecneice or berry with your hampton trade – then trade otten up next week 🙂

      Tim · 11/05/2017 at 10:36

      Cheers mate, i would much prefer heeney but that first bye round i already have 3 forwards out, would 4 become an issue?

        LoganJosh7 · 11/05/2017 at 10:44

        mmm tricky. good idea to start looking at the byes! 4 is an issue but if youre super covered everywhere else you might be ok?

          Tim · 11/05/2017 at 10:48

          Yeah if i bring in Heeney, that would leave me with 1 premo on defense, 3 in the mids and 4 in the forwards out during that round. So boarderline

    INPieman · 11/05/2017 at 10:36

    If Newman is not named & McNeice is named I'd make that trade to keep cash flow up & trade Houston to Yeo. Leave some money for next week. Hampton might lose some cash but you'll have plenty to upgrade him to whoever you want next week

      Tim · 11/05/2017 at 10:49

      Cheers Pieman, would you trade Newman instead of Stewart? I know Stewarts BE is more friendly but Newman is killing it in the NEAFL and better scoring potential.

        Kev · 11/05/2017 at 10:56

        Horse has dropped him twice despite his year in the NEAFL. Form in that comp counts for peanuts in his eyes

        INPieman · 11/05/2017 at 10:59

        Nup. I think Stewart has a much better chance of getting back in. Newman had his chance. I watched him & his decision making wasn't good at the elite level. The difference between the AFL & the NEAFL is enormous

          LoganJosh7 · 11/05/2017 at 11:20

          to put it into perspective. I play B Grade footy in country league in SA (not really all that flash). When i moved up to newcastle for half a year i got straight into a squad that was in diamond league, albeit useless….
          diamond league is the NEAFL reserves!!!

          Cogla13 · 11/05/2017 at 17:15

          Mark O'Connor named for Geelong is not good for Stewart's chances.

        Weasel · 11/05/2017 at 11:05

        NEAFL stats are fools gold.

Benjamin B · 11/05/2017 at 10:33

What are peoples thoughts on Treloar?

If he plays im going to hold him however if he doesn't im thinking of trading him to either: Merrett, Jack Steven, or Cotchin???

    INPieman · 11/05/2017 at 10:47

    Hold him till his bye then reassess

    neil demons delight · 11/05/2017 at 12:24

    trade him for ebert after 9

    The Ranger · 11/05/2017 at 13:06

    Trading any premo is a luxury trade and you should only be doing those after the rest of your team is full premo.

    Northernsoul74 · 11/05/2017 at 14:06

    Not training again today.

      Captain Risky · 11/05/2017 at 15:05

      I guessing here……but, I am assuming he has FAI or OP, and therefore he will be managed somewhat this year to get him through the season, then at the end of the year he'll be booked in for clean up surgery. If it gets more severe, and the pies have no chance to make finals then they might do it early.
      FAI is pretty common in footballers from what I've heard through my surgeon and physios. I think the Bont had both hips done last year but it's a pretty std op.

      Femoral Acetabular Impingment btw

        Tim · 11/05/2017 at 15:26

        FAI is not all that common in footballers of Beams' age. It's a congenital defect with overgrowth of the bone that comprises the hip joint (femur, being your leg bone, and acetabulum, being your socket). It's only a cause for concern if it inhibits range of motion (ROM) or later in life with arthritic ramifications.

        For someone who has been playing football as long as Beams, if his ROM was inhibited to the point that it required surgery, then it would have been addressed much earlier, especially since constant running and kicking would have been causing damage (if he was reaching his end of range with that action, which obviously would be happening if surgery was deemed necessary).

        It makes no sense for Beams to be managed for FAI when he has had several preseasons to address it throughout his career. That being the case, I doubt that FAI is the cause, unless the medical team throughout his junior years, at Collingwood, and at Brisbane were all incompetent, OR he is an idiot that kept delaying it despite the problems it has been causing.

        Source: I'm a physio (and have had surgery for FAI, myself).

          Captain Risky · 11/05/2017 at 15:46

          Treloar…. It is congenital but also common in athletes.

          Those with a higher risk include:

          ● Those who have abnormally shaped femur bones
          ● Athletes who participate in high-level sports or activities
          ● Younger athletes
          ● Those with a history of traumatic or sports-related injuries to the hip

          He had issues at GWS and had hip surgery before he got to the pies ( Made headlines and his manager organised it all in secret apparently)

          I had FAI surgery last year as well, but I ain't no physio..

            Eskimo · 11/05/2017 at 16:18

            Well I dunno what you two doctors are on about, but if dr dre were here, he would tell us to pop a cap in his ass.

              hedski · 11/05/2017 at 16:46

              Fo shizzle

              Captain Risky · 11/05/2017 at 17:34

              Yes, to summarise, i'd trade the bugger!

            Tim · 11/05/2017 at 17:56

            My mistake, Captain Risky

            I thought you were referring to Beams.

            Treloar makes a lot more sense due to his relatively younger age, and could also perhaps explain his issues with disposal efficiency, as he is combatting poor ROM and hip pain.

James · 11/05/2017 at 10:47

Rance or Simpson

    Benjamin B · 11/05/2017 at 10:55

    I got Simpson last week and getting Rance this week. Both will end up top 6 I believe. Id get Randle now and Simpson week 12 (after bye week)

      LEKD0G · 11/05/2017 at 12:19

      I like this logic

    Kev · 11/05/2017 at 10:56

    Simmo

    whatyasmokin · 11/05/2017 at 11:56

    Simpson for sure.

Cole · 11/05/2017 at 10:48

Should i go for a big bucks premo eg bont/rocky or go for a bargain with merret/steven

    Kev · 11/05/2017 at 10:58

    Depends on your other mids. I really need a reliable VC/C option. Danger/Selwood/Fyfe/JPK not cutting it. Bont in for me as long as the teams don't screw me over again

    Holty · 11/05/2017 at 11:03

    With lack of money generation this year Cole, i think selecting bargains is the way to go. It will be difficult to get to full premo come finals time otherwise.

      Cole · 11/05/2017 at 11:13

      im leaning towards that idea as well but i do need a captain option as well- mids are Danger/Treloar/JPK/Fyfe/dusty and none have been reliable for me- bont likely still a bargain as well at this point-cant see him falling from here either

        Andrew · 11/05/2017 at 11:40

        I'm bringing in Rocky this week and will then likely look for fallen premium as next trade in to forward line or mids (JJK / Roo likely options) – have bombed on my captaincy (and VC) picks of late so need to add more options into my side.

Oliver · 11/05/2017 at 11:07

Trades this week
Otten – Shaw
Beams – Cripps
Leaving me with 20k but means I have to hold Hampton for a week and hope he doesn't bleed to much cash

Thoughts ?

    whatyasmokin · 11/05/2017 at 11:56

    Viney is cheaper and averaging more than Cripps. Liberatore, Gaff, Cunnington.

    Not telling you not to trade him in, just have to say that Cripps is average this year and shows no signs of big scoring.

    LEKD0G · 11/05/2017 at 12:20

    Brings two premos in, like it, lock it!

    Sauce · 11/05/2017 at 14:09

    I don't like Heath shows role this year with GWS defenders shush as Williams and Kennedy stealing his points I would go a Rance, Laird,Adams, Docherty or Simmo all over Shaw and I would go Beams for a Martin or JPK

TRIGGER HAPPY · 11/05/2017 at 11:07

Nice one LEK
it looks like the strike rate is about 50%
some work out, some don't.
That's supercoach but the rookies this year have been putrid!
Is it too much to ask for a 60?
Couple that with some underwhelming premos and there are some nasty scores becoming the norm.,

So you try to fix your weak areas (we all have one) but as we are only at round 7 we are still reliant on at least 2 plus rookies on field.
60 lads that is all I ask.,

Like most team will rely on selection or more importantly non selection tonight.
Hoping EVW and Stewart get named. Need one of these two. Newman be nice but aint holding out much hope.
Hibberd? reaching? has been a handy DPP.

Then you got the Selwood and Treloar will they? wont they play?
do have coverage but forces me to push a fwd into the mids and put hannan (if named) on the field – love that not!

With a full team playing only have 3 rookies on field – how that hell is everyone else coping with numerous rookies on field?
heaven help us.

Gets on one knee – oh mighty SC god whatever we have done to anger you we reservedly apologise.
Let us know what we can do to make things right? Can you let the rookies have one good week? 60 is all we ask!. I would take that.

    LEKD0G · 11/05/2017 at 12:20

    I hope they are kind to us

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 13:37

    I even found myself looking at Francis as an option. This is how desperate this year is.

LoganJosh7 · 11/05/2017 at 11:11

if mcneice isnt named – melican or berry? and why 🙂

    INPieman · 11/05/2017 at 11:16

    If you get picked again after scoring 14 you've got JS. So Berry

      LEKD0G · 11/05/2017 at 12:21

      ^

      bUCKET__ · 11/05/2017 at 20:40

      James 'Nineteen' Parsons must be a top bloke too

    Pete · 11/05/2017 at 19:47

    Yep js and Dpp makes Berry a better choice

John · 11/05/2017 at 11:27

Thoughts on Harbrow?

    Adzy · 11/05/2017 at 12:18

    Im also liking the look of harbrow

    LEKD0G · 11/05/2017 at 12:22

    Having a good year with 4/5 tons but has the bye next week. Watch him this week and reassess round 10

Garry · 11/05/2017 at 11:36

Z Jones or A Rance?

    LEKD0G · 11/05/2017 at 12:22

    Rance

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 13:34

    Rance has R12 bye. Nice

    whatyasmokin · 11/05/2017 at 14:39

    Agree on Rance here, can only get better I reckon.

Brett H · 11/05/2017 at 11:51

G'day community!!

Further to Triggers post above.

I am still playing Marchbank and Otten and Hampton and EVW and SPP and Barrett and Butler and Balic on field. Plus have question marks over Jelwood and Treloar this week.

After some wonderful downgrades to star cash generating rooks like EVW and Fisher and Parsons over the past few weeks!!!, I have a bank of 619K.

Therefore, I really should be upgrading the likes of Hampton and Otten (this week) or Butler (next week).

However, there is every chance that this week I will also have these bench players out:

DEF: Newman / Stewart (and maybe EVW)
MID: Fisher / Hibberd / Beams
FWD: Eddy / Parsons (and there is a small chance of Balic also being out)

My question is whether I should be using all of my bank this week to upgrade two of my non playing rooks (eg Newman and Eddy / Fisher / Parsons to say Heeney and Pendles), or whether I should trade out a higher priced playing rook that is about to lose dough (eg Hampton).

Just feel like I am going to be in a world of pain through the bye rounds with so many rooks that may not be playing, but unfortunately all of these rooks are worth less than $200K at present.

Have finished in top 1000 for the past few years, but have found this year really tough. Would probably be different if I have chosen Houston over Eddy, chosen Hardwick over Fisher, chosen Black over Parsons etc etc.

Really appreciate any thoughts you may have on whether we should be ditching the really low priced rooks that are not currently playing.

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 12:08

    I would be doing a bit of both. Go hampton and beams to Bont and Adams/Doch/Laird/any other top defender. If you have that many rookies then you are behind and need to get into the game.

Joe T · 11/05/2017 at 11:57

Hey community! Got a few options this week as I went with the double downgrade last round.

1. Houston and Otten out > 1 premo DEF and 1 premo FWD (leaves me with around 50k)
2. Otten and Hampton out > bring in 2 premo DEFs (not sure if this is the best points generation option)
3. Otten and Hampton out > bring in 1 premo DEF and Berry/McNiece (still leaves me with 400-450k)

My DEF options I'm considering are either Lloyd or Williams, I think both are a tad underpriced at the moment considering they may finish top 8 defenders. Only reason I'm not getting Simpson yet is because I have Doch and Marchbank through the byes. Adams is a post-bye upgrade for me.

Premo FWDs are either JJK and Yeo (R12 byes) or Buddy who is very underpriced but has the R11 bye so means he's really only in for 3 weeks.

Any thoughts would be appreciated, cheers!

    Lazza · 11/05/2017 at 14:01

    What is your thinking on Premo's from GCS e.g. Lynch & Ablett, and Port e.g. Wines, Gray, Ebert post R9? If you have any of them in mind I would go with Option 3 and hold your cash to pick one up to carry you thru the R11, 12 & 13 Byes…
    Otherwise either Options 1 & 2 – choose the one that best suits your bye rounds.

      Joe T · 11/05/2017 at 15:48

      The only one I would consider is Ablett. I've already got Lynch and aren't too keen on any of the Port players.

      Question is can Gaz finish higher than Sloane, Bont, Selwood and Neale from here on in? If not then he's not the best post bye option

    Sauce · 11/05/2017 at 14:22

    I'd go option 1 but Hampton out instead of otten and get in buddy and Rance or Lloyd if u already have rance

Derek · 11/05/2017 at 12:33

Was Zac Fisher injured or omitted last week?

If he gets named this week he might be an ok downgrade, still cheap

    gator59 · 11/05/2017 at 12:42

    Not 100% sure Derek ..think It was a slight hammy !!

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 11/05/2017 at 12:50

    Tweaked hammy in final qtr.
    Test this week
    May be back
    Bolts likes him and his attack on the player/ball

    Holty · 11/05/2017 at 12:52

    Injured. Should be ok for this week.

    INPieman · 11/05/2017 at 12:58

    Did a hammy. Usually players don't come back a fortnight later. I'd be surprised

      Derek · 11/05/2017 at 13:22

      Ok. I didn't get him on bubble, but he is still cheap

Derek · 11/05/2017 at 12:40

If Newman, Stewart, Pickett or Preuss not named this week, who should I get rid of first?

I'll probably keep Hampton to have a warm body on field. He will lose a bit of cash this week as his 103 drops out of his average, but after that the Crows have a few nice games and he could do an Oxley and knock out an decent score.

    gator59 · 11/05/2017 at 12:44

    That spud Pickett

    INPieman · 11/05/2017 at 13:02

    I'd say Newman or Preuss. At least they have made a reasonable amount. If they don't get back in this week I think that's the end of any relevance. Stewart I'm much more confident on seeing back soon. Pickett….meh….worth nothing

      Derek · 11/05/2017 at 13:21

      Pickett is hany with his DPP.

      Preuss I brought in and he gave me one game. Surely he plays this week.

      What do you think about holding Hampton? Could he do an Oxley?

        The Ranger · 11/05/2017 at 13:31

        I'm strongly considering holding him Derek.
        Another ton would be nice thanks Curtly!

          Derek · 11/05/2017 at 17:10

          unless all my other spud rookies are named, i'll hold him

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 13:27

    I may shed a little tear when I have to get rid of Berry. Has been a love/hate relationship, but he stepped up last week and used his superDPP power and filled in Defence when McGrath was rested.

      BlueBoy · 11/05/2017 at 14:00

      Started with Berry too. Improving every week.

        Derek · 11/05/2017 at 17:10

        we just need one good score!

Beady Eye · 11/05/2017 at 12:45

Which should be the priority to get in this week?

Adams (BE 84)
Merrett (BE 96)
Heeney (BE 42)

    Holty · 11/05/2017 at 12:57

    Adams for me. I think Merrett will average slightly more but a defender who can average near 110 is a higher priority. Ill be bringing Adams in myself this week

    Kyle · 11/05/2017 at 13:56

    Adams then zerrett. Heeney definately not a must have imo

    pod · 11/05/2017 at 13:58

    Adams then Zerrett

    Sauce · 11/05/2017 at 14:12

    Buddy
    B/E 32

    Nick · 11/05/2017 at 15:05

    Heeney would be first. He will end up being top 6 forward. While Adams will go down at some point. Merrett isn't worth it. Rather go for Bont or Sloane.

Holty · 11/05/2017 at 12:53

Being a non Pendlebury owner, im hoping he does leave half way through the game with his score around 40. Just imagine what his price would be after his bye. 500k?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 11/05/2017 at 13:02

    If u had of told me at the start of the season u could pick up.
    JPK, Pendles, Parker, Gray and Dusty under $500k at the start of the year I would have asked what gear you were on and can I try some as they make u hallucinate.

    But this is a real possibility.
    Bloody moo rookies.

    Jezza · 11/05/2017 at 13:14

    No way that's going to happen. Would he really leave Bucks twisting in the wind like that with his coaching career on the line?? I don't think so. Worst case he's a late out but he's not leaving mid game.

      Dnoyes · 11/05/2017 at 13:34

      Nathan has explicitly said that if he finds out that his wife is giving birth mid game, that he will leave the game and get on the first flight back to Melbourne. This is a fairly unlikely situation but it is possible. I also don't have Pendles and because of this pregnancy issue I am going to pick up Yeo

    jez_m · 11/05/2017 at 13:34

    I'd be very surprised if he left mid-game. If there's even a slight chance of that happening, they may as well not play him.

the barrell · 11/05/2017 at 13:19

who is best to cut this week?
one of otten, hampton, butler?
dpp means I can still trade in the same players, just unsure of these blokes breakevens

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 13:30

    I'm looking first at my players who don't get named before those boys who are actually playing

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 13:32

    hampton

Kyle · 11/05/2017 at 14:05

So originally my trade this week was hampton to zerrett. Was also thinking otten to mcniece if named.

HOWEVER now that houston wont be playing and has the bye, my forward bench has parsons and eddy sitting on it…should i rethink bringing in zerret for dare i say it, yeo for houston?

Sauce · 11/05/2017 at 14:10

What do I do
Option 1: Hampton and Otten for Mcniece and Doc
Option 2: Hampton and Houston for Mcniece or Buddy

    Kyle · 11/05/2017 at 14:53

    Would wait on mcniece till he gets named. Doc will be a top 3 defender this year. Will need to bring him in eventually. Maybe now or in a few weeks when he may be cheaper. But buddy is great value atm. Wont be this cheap for long with that monster score in his rolling average.

    Also start thinking about your bye structure. A lot will probably not be looking at buddy because of his bye. Lots of premos are with him. Same can be said about doc tho, if you have marchebank and simpson like many do.

    Lots to think about with the two of them lol

    For me i would bring buddy in this week of the two.

Dnoyes · 11/05/2017 at 14:34

Curious what everyone's rank, trades and team value(including spare cash) are?
I'm ranked 4707, 19 trades after this week, and 1,215,000.

    whatyasmokin · 11/05/2017 at 14:52

    Dropped 9300 ranks the other week 🙁

    14717, 17 trades after this week (yikes!), 12,609,900

    Doch, Adams, Lloyd, Simpson, Marchbank, McGrath – Newman/EVW

    Bont, Rocky, Danger, Oliver, Fyfe, JPK, Treloar, GHS – Barrett/Fox/Fisher

    Witts, Sandi – Cameron

    Yeo, Dahl, McCrae, Steele, Nank, Butler – Houston/Balic

    If Witts and sandi become keepers or at least one of them I should be ok, but with this little amount of trades things could fall apart fairly easily.

    Hopefully Steele a forward line keeper and also may keep McGrath for swing he's been pretty impressive.

      Dnoyes · 11/05/2017 at 15:09

      Very nice team. Similar to mine but a bit more valuable. I think I'll have to look to trade a bit more riskily

      Derek · 11/05/2017 at 17:09

      seriously…. your team is worth $12,609k. that is a serious supercoach team

      What r u smoking? · 11/05/2017 at 18:05

      Living up to your name
      Looking at your team no way team is worth that.

whatyasmokin · 11/05/2017 at 14:43

What do we think of Mutimer?

Players who have missed last two weeks with injury are Jamie Cripps and Jackson Nelson, Duggan missed last week only.

All three set to be back from 1-3 weeks.

Looks like one to avoid I reckon.

    jez_m · 11/05/2017 at 15:49

    He certainly hasn't set the world on fire since he's been in the team. Reckon he'll struggle to hold his spot if any of those three are fit.

Warrick · 11/05/2017 at 15:25

Just wondering what's happened to Pickett from blues and is there any chance he be back to make any cash?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 11/05/2017 at 16:22

    He had 8 disposals in the VFL on the weekend
    Coach said needs to give more for longer
    With those numbers can't see him getting a gig anytime soon or if he did making much cash.
    Cunningham will be next in line for a recall, maybe Fisher if fit for the blues.

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 17:07

    have you watched him play?

    next year we might see him unless there are injuries or Carlton just don't care

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 11/05/2017 at 17:12

      Not sure what GWS saw in him but #4?
      Can't see it at the moment

        Derek · 11/05/2017 at 17:17

        they gave him every chance and he scored 28, 35, 36, 49, 28…..

        i kept saying, just ONE good score…….

        his DPP is good, so will keep him just for that

Jonathon · 11/05/2017 at 15:39

Time to get some of these rookies off the field! I Need to upgrade a defender and mid.

Do I go:

Docherty and Heppel?

Rance and Bont?

    jez_m · 11/05/2017 at 15:49

    Can you go Doc and Bont? If not, Rance and Bont for mine.

      Jonathon · 11/05/2017 at 15:55

      can't afford Doc and Bont – they are the two I want…just can't do it both at once

        jez_m · 11/05/2017 at 15:57

        Fair enough. I reckon Bont is almost the must-have midfielder this year, so get him first.

    Moustachio · 11/05/2017 at 18:18

    2 for sure

jez_m · 11/05/2017 at 15:51

Cats are debuting another rookie this week – Mark O'Connor (102K defender)
http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-05-11/irish-cat-m

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 11/05/2017 at 16:15

    Good on him
    Not sure this is real good news for Stewart.

      jez_m · 11/05/2017 at 16:38

      From what I've read today he's more of a midfielder than a defender, so it might not be all bad for Stewart.

      hedski · 11/05/2017 at 16:48

      I reckon Chickenhawk Murdoch will be dropped for O'Connor Trig, friggen turnover king last week, hoping Stewart still comes in, maybe for Bews.

    The Master · 11/05/2017 at 16:46

    Thanks Jez_m, suits my bye round 13 trouble better than Mcneice.

    Kyle · 11/05/2017 at 16:53

    Hows it looking for parsons JS with this new debutant?

    I also have similar worries about stuart aswell

    Moustachio · 11/05/2017 at 18:19

    Locked (don't need to do any research with such slim pickings :S)

Jacob · 11/05/2017 at 16:42

Rejoice our teams are saved! Geelong have upgraded Mark O'Connor and he will play this week. He is like a Zac Tuohy 2.0 although he can also play midfield where he is most damaging. Not too dis similar to Bontempelli. Im trading him in this week. #whywait

    neil demons delight · 11/05/2017 at 16:50

    way too early but irish will be good learning the trade down back

      Derek · 11/05/2017 at 17:05

      not good for Parsons or Stewart

    Jacob · 11/05/2017 at 17:30

    Upto 2 you guys, but 102k for a potential premium it's a no brainer for me

      Moustachio · 11/05/2017 at 18:20

      Yep, just gotta wait 5 years. Play the long game. Smart.

      SF4 · 11/05/2017 at 19:29

      Potential premium?, the bloke hasn't played a game.

        shooganooga · 12/05/2017 at 12:49

        In fact has played a TOTAL of 4 games of AFL in his entire life!

John · 11/05/2017 at 16:48

Hey guys any feedback would be appreciated
20 trades 30k in bank
Def: laird, Simpson, Howe, shaw, often, Hampton (Newman smith)
Mid: danger, pendles, Fyfe, jpk, treloar, hanners, spp, Barrett (Balic, fisher, Pickett)
Ruck: grundy and Sandilands
Fwd: Dahlhaus, macrae, buddy, nank, butler, Houston (parsons eddy)
I have a few trade options:
1) Hampton to McNiece/berry and treloar to bont (only way I can get bont in)
2) often to mcniece if named and Houston to Rockliff or other
3) Hampton to McNiece/berry and Houston to yeo/jjk
Really want Bont but seems a waste to trade treloar

    Tyruddanaut · 11/05/2017 at 21:24

    Berry is going to be an onballer on the weekend so get him in

hedski · 11/05/2017 at 16:50

Got a feeling I'll be curled up in the corner a quivering mess when teams are dropped tonight!!!

    yes not a twit also and look forward to it

Jeffreyhead · 11/05/2017 at 16:58

fkn off treloar for merret. Hate a sideways trade, but in treloars case this year its a super upgrade. God he is a piece of sh*t.

    Cogla13 · 11/05/2017 at 17:32

    Flick treloar at the R13 bye.

squidlet123 · 11/05/2017 at 16:59

Is Docherty worth the buy at 580k?? Got Bont coming in as well.. but its a lot of coin being spent.

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 17:04

    he is worth it, but unfortunately i can't afford that this year. i'm like Pieman, will be shopping in the Bargin Bins

    Baggy Pants · 11/05/2017 at 17:44

    Both round 11 bye players how does it fit your structure?

      squidlet123 · 11/05/2017 at 18:44

      Bye structure is fine, I'm losing the same round players with each. also next week i'll still have enough to bring in a dusty with a down grade or two

    Moustachio · 11/05/2017 at 18:21

    There is no way we can pay that kind of cash and make all our upgrades this year. Prioritise Bont due to lack of C options.

Tom · 11/05/2017 at 17:01

Best Defender under 500k? Have Lloyd and JJ already

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 17:03

    Rance just ahead of Shaw

Declan · 11/05/2017 at 17:03

Am I better to go J Lloyd or Doc currently have Simpson Howe and Laird so leaning towards doc as I can see him being top 3 defender whereas Lloyd is another 5-8 defender and already have simpson and howe in that role, so don't want too many of them. Would be much appreciated Community

    sddd · 11/05/2017 at 18:00

    Go Doc for sure if you can, im a bit worried about Lloyd's output once Mcveigh gets back into the swing of things

hedski · 11/05/2017 at 17:18

Another debutant Daniel Lloyd $117k midfielder for GWS, mature age, kicks goals.

    INPieman · 11/05/2017 at 17:55

    Wouldn't be going any GWS rookies early. If at all. Major JS issues

      hedski · 11/05/2017 at 18:10

      Agreed, still iffy on Myers. (Going early)

Declan · 11/05/2017 at 18:22

Treloar out!!! Is he time to go?

    Lazza · 11/05/2017 at 18:25

    Not yet … after 1 week's rest he will come back better …. we will get 4 more games out of him before the Bye … and you will need them to cover the Byes and to save trades … I'd assess then and if he has spudded then change him out for R13.

      neil demons delight · 11/05/2017 at 18:43

      pretty good advice to Declan I think I will take it on board some good feedback on this forum well done

    Captain Risky · 11/05/2017 at 18:34

Captain Risky · 11/05/2017 at 18:25

Fisher back for the blues- something at least.

The rooks have appeared.

Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 18:29

Everyone bagging out Parsons but Black has been dropped and not him!

On another note I hate Adam Treloar. Why did I pick him again?? Have to hold I think – but very frustrated.

    JohndJames · 11/05/2017 at 21:59

    Why does everyone say we must keep Treloar,oh yes he's a premo,but if you look at his scores is he?He is no longer in my team by the way.

hedski · 11/05/2017 at 18:33

Woo hoo, Fisher can cover Treloar (groan).
Might be able to stick to trade plans for once.
Told ya Murdoch would get dropped, pleb.

    neil demons delight · 11/05/2017 at 18:38

    thinking of getting rid of him never side swapped a premium but treloar has worn me out. Plenty good options Adams for one… Just cant see him getting better.. if I do trade pendles or adams

      Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 18:40

      Adams

Marcus · 11/05/2017 at 18:35

Liam · 11/05/2017 at 18:39

I think i'm gonna do something a bit different around premo upgrading this year.

With the struggles of lack laster rookies and cash generation getting all the top 6 is going to be a struggle because you will need to pay high prices for guys like Docherty, Bont etc. I think i'm going to avoid SOME of these guys in the up coming weeks so that I can save trades and get to full premo earlier.

Just a small calculation that I have done that proves this point.

Trading in a Rance next week at around 490k who will score around 95pts per round is better than trading in Docherty after his bye who will score around 108pts per round.

If you trade Rance in next week he will give you a total point gain of 1330 and roughly 120k spare (which could be an extra trade as well).

If you go with Docherty after his bye you will get a total point gain of 1353. (12×108 and 3×55).

This is just my two cents in a tough year of cash gen. You only lose around 23pts overall but gain extra cash and possibly a trade.

Let me know your thoughts. Cheers Liam.

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 00:53

    I think that's good in theory, but this year is so fkd up, no one can predict anything , I reckon a good formula is, get em when they're cheap, but only if they have a good record, when it comes to premos..and don't pay top dollar.

    Leeds17 · 12/05/2017 at 05:50

    I like this thinking It only gets undone come finals time when I've got Rance and my opponent has Doch

Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 18:39

Who would you rather on field – Hannan, parsons or fisher? They all absolutely suck and am leaning towards fisher. However if I have fisher on field it means that I have zero midfield bench cover (with Selwood a possible late out).

That leaves me with the choice between someone who score 19 last week or a guy who hasn't scored over 55 in his last five outings. What is happening.

    Kyle · 11/05/2017 at 18:45

    Would take parsons on field. He showed something in his first 2 games and i am hoping that last week was just an outlier.

      Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 18:56

      Am thinking the same.

Lazza · 11/05/2017 at 18:40

Balic out …Stewart in

SirSamuel016 · 11/05/2017 at 18:40

Was considering a trade of Treloar and Hampton/Otten to Bont and Adams this round but have instead decided to trade both Adelaide rookies out for Adams and another player. I've got 492k left for this player, so who should I bring in? (Already have Docherty, Rance and Shaw in my team)

    Kyle · 11/05/2017 at 18:43

    JJ

      SirSamuel016 · 11/05/2017 at 18:45

      Jason Johannisen?

        Kyle · 11/05/2017 at 18:57

        Yes

    Dusty Spurs · 11/05/2017 at 18:51

    LLoyd

      DavidSA · 11/05/2017 at 18:59

      Bothe are good options and both already in my team

Lazza · 11/05/2017 at 18:40

Newman in the Syd squad

    Eskimo · 11/05/2017 at 19:01

    Tippet and Rohan back I see them getting in b4 Newman. three to be dropped.

Kyle · 11/05/2017 at 18:43

Jake lever out for te crows. How is that gonna affect otten? Was scoring total shit when he was pmaying down back.

Lazza · 11/05/2017 at 18:43

Out of my team – Treloar, Balic, Houston … back-ins … Fisher and Stewart … possibly Newman.

3 new rookies to check out O'Connor, McInnes and Lloyd.. been hanging out for McInnes…

The BONT · 11/05/2017 at 18:43

Stuff It Treloar out in my team Neale coming in and Otten out and Berry In Hampton is going to leak cash on my bench

    DavidSA · 11/05/2017 at 18:58

    Umm you will leak cash and ur fine with that over keeping a premium?

    LoganJosh7 · 12/05/2017 at 10:20

    i would hold treloar… and also would trade hampton over otten anyday.

Morzaaa · 11/05/2017 at 18:44

No Preuss… What does the big bastard have to do to get a game…

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 18:57

    He is gone from my team.

sddd · 11/05/2017 at 18:46

Buckley finally did something right. Dropped Cox, Thank God

FEARTHEBEARD · 11/05/2017 at 18:47

McNiece named?

    Mich · 11/05/2017 at 18:48

    Nope

      Wattsieesq · 11/05/2017 at 19:04

      Not even an emergency

    INPieman · 11/05/2017 at 19:57

    More rest needed. Still tired

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 00:55

    4408 people still traded him in regardless lol

The BONT · 11/05/2017 at 18:48

Who gets the C this week

    Don't Blush Baby · 11/05/2017 at 19:06

    I'm putting the VC on Bont tomorrow night , then look at the others later if needed

    hedski · 11/05/2017 at 23:23

    Ross Lyon. Big C.

      Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 02:38

      I gather you have Balic?…lol

        hedski · 12/05/2017 at 08:10

        Yep

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 00:57

    VC Bont, and hopefully that'll be all, I'm starting with VC on Bont and C on Adams.

Pete · 11/05/2017 at 18:49

Berry or Melican ?

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 18:55

    Berry

      DavidSA · 11/05/2017 at 19:03

      Yupdid same Berry in for Houston will implemennt swing set for with Berry and McGrath

Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 18:49

I am still thinking of bringing in Mcniece. It is the only way that any of my plans will work out. He can sit on my bench and hopefully get a gig in his next few games (especially rnd 11 would be nice). Without him my entire trade strategy is screwed – and I am willing to cop a loss in cash gen later for 70k now. When you think about it berry probably has about 60-70k left in him, whilst Mcniece has at least that if he can play 2 more games – and costs 70k less to start with so I am making 70,000 with that trade. With stewart in and Newman in (if not he isn't very far away) I am confident that I can cover my backline without any doughnuts. It is risky but I need that 70k in order to make my upgrades – it is too difficult for me otherwise. Risky but if Mcniece gets picked up in the next few weeks then I will be as happy as larry, and my team will be all the better for it.

The toss up is:

1. Mcniece and Yeo this week for Butler and Hampton (Adams and Myers next week for Otten and SPP with about 20k in bank)

2. Berry and Yeo for Butler and Otten (Rance and Myers next week for Hampton and SPP with about 10k in bank)

Am leaning towards option one as I really want Adams, but torn. I would love to hear the suggestions of you guys.

    Brett H · 11/05/2017 at 19:07

    Finnius – I still worry about Newman getting a gig any time soon.

    With that 7 man bench, I don't think he will play this week, and then the Swans get back Kieran Jack next week (and Rampe back probably the week after).

    It is such as shame as Newman could average 80+ if he got a regular gig, but I think it is actually time for him to go.

    I understand that not getting McNiece stuffs everything for your trades this week, and I really like Stewart as a long term player for the Cats, but I think you may be facing a donut in your DEF pretty soon if you are relying on one of these three to play each week.

      Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 19:30

      Just looked at that. Am worried about a doughnut – and Rance does have the right bye round. Might get Berry in.

      Tough decisions like this make our season!

        Dutch · 11/05/2017 at 20:59

        Berry will be invaluable during the byes if he becomes a mainstay in the Bris team – which it looks like at the moment. For that reason I'd go Option 2 and get Adams after his bye. Rance's bye round a bonus, plus Rance will be much more expense by the time his bye comes around, whilst Adams should be similar to now.

    Kyle · 11/05/2017 at 19:12

    Was actually thinking Very similar. Extra 70k now is gonna be very handy and whenever mcniece gets another game or 2 he will make more cash. And with stuart and newman both on my bench, both being named gives me hope. I went hampton to zerrett and now jake lever has been dropped. Otten scores like shit down back and thats where he will be going. Would give me an extra 270k in the bank aswell.

    Lazza · 11/05/2017 at 19:22

    Berry can easily reach $300k if he continues his recent form.

      Kyle · 11/05/2017 at 19:47

      Meaning he gains 130k if you trade him in now and out at 300k.

      For mcniece to even that he needs to make 60k from his starting game. We already get 70k from the price dif with berry. As long as you think mcniece can play a few games in the near future he seems the better option imo.

        Dutch · 11/05/2017 at 21:00

        Depending on what other rookies come along, Berry could even be a very good bench option to keep through to the end.

          Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 22:20

          agreed. Could provide cover as a swing player and I may not need to cull him at all as I have almost enough rookies now to do that.

Swans2012 · 11/05/2017 at 18:50

So with a bit of swing swing I can stick to my plans and still field a donut free team…..but dam it makes me cringe looking at beams swallow and treloar on that mid bench….. #sticktotheplan #saynotosidewaysbeforebyes

    INPieman · 11/05/2017 at 19:56

    An expensive bench. Must say I've had a few over the journey. The real big round scores come late in the season. I think your making an excellent decision

      Swans2012 · 11/05/2017 at 22:45

      It is made easier by the fact that this week was a double upgrade week for me anyway! Might have been closer to weakening if I had a trade spare….

    Randomcliche · 11/05/2017 at 21:48

    More swings than toys r us! Good decision.

      Swans2012 · 11/05/2017 at 22:46

      Love the swings, another trade saved

redherringfc · 11/05/2017 at 18:50

I'm kind of glad Treloar is out injured. Hopefully he can recover fully and come back and score consistent, decent points.

Hoping this will end up being another lesson of "don't trade out your premiums" and "don't sideways trade".

John Hall · 11/05/2017 at 18:51

upgrade to lloyd and yeo

upgrade to adams and buddy

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 18:55

    Tough! Would go option two as both are more proven.

    Kyle · 11/05/2017 at 18:56

    Adams and buddy

Jemma · 11/05/2017 at 18:57

Adams, Shaw, Tuohy, Otten, Hampton, Marchbank (Newmann, Hibberd)
Danger, Pendles, Fyfe, JPK, Macrae, Pepper, Barrett, Balik (Beams, O'Meara, Swallow)
Martin, Sandi (Strnadica)
Nank, Buddy, Roughy, Dahl, Taranto, Butler (Eddy, Parsons)
183K in bank
Thinking – O'Meara – Berry via DPP Adams and slot him in Middle
Then Perhaps Swallow or Beams via DPP move to Dahl in Middle and get Yeo/Kennedy FWD
or do i get rid of Hampton. Help with my structure with trade in moves.

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 01:05

    Those moves sound good Jemma, you need to start getting rid of the spuds and injured. How many trades have you done?
    Try to get your midfield to full premo asap, (with some backup) and then focus on other lines.

Clint · 11/05/2017 at 19:01

Adams or Bont?

    Lazza · 11/05/2017 at 19:26

    Both are must haves in their positions (Adams in DEF) .. flip..

Ken · 11/05/2017 at 19:05

Rance v Lloyd?

Joshua · 11/05/2017 at 19:08

Got Houston, Hampton and Otten. Thinking of hampton to a rookie mid or def and Otten up to Adams. Will cover Houston with parsons. What rookie should i get in? Berry, Melican, Myers? maybe even fisher?

The BONT · 11/05/2017 at 19:10

Adams has an injury scare let the track early today

    Jacob · 11/05/2017 at 19:17

    Adams (Collingwood)? Source?

      The BONT · 11/05/2017 at 19:24

      http://www.afl.com.au/video/2017-05-11/shanghai-d

        FEARTHEBEARD · 11/05/2017 at 19:32

        Can't get it to play? Did it sound bad for Adams or what? He was my target this week…

          neil demons delight · 11/05/2017 at 20:58

          looks minor a hand I think

    Joshua · 11/05/2017 at 19:18

    Shit that along with Wells coming in and bye factor, might go Houston to Yeo instead of Otten to Adams. Downgrading Hampton regardless probably to Berry

FEARTHEBEARD · 11/05/2017 at 19:16

FFS.

McNiece screwed me.

Soooo.

Go early on O'Connor or McInnes?

Or chop Beams for Myers early?

    Lazza · 11/05/2017 at 19:30

    If you have to go early ….McInnes … who knows what goes on at the selection table at Geelong … Black played ok, Parsons has a shocker and stays in … Scott is the new Lyon

    But you should seriously consider Berry.

      FEARTHEBEARD · 11/05/2017 at 19:43

      If I take Adams which was the plan I had 160kish to buy, berrys 170k 😐

      Now I see Adams finished injured may be a diff trade completely.

Pom · 11/05/2017 at 19:16

Hannan and Parsons, Turd shaped diamonds that start on field!

SC17 · 11/05/2017 at 19:23

Who should I trade first out of Otten, Steele, SPP, Barrett, WHE or Taranto?
I can go up to a premium with any of them.
Please suggest trade in options.

    Lazza · 11/05/2017 at 19:57

    Otten. The others have $$ to earn

    Pete · 11/05/2017 at 20:08

    Otten has a high break even and the least likely of those choices to maintain his price.

      SC17 · 11/05/2017 at 21:08

      Who do you suggest to bring in

Alby · 11/05/2017 at 19:25

who is a priority to move on Houston or Hampton

    Wattsieesq · 11/05/2017 at 19:31

    Hampton

    Pete · 11/05/2017 at 20:00

    Hampton more likely to lose cash

      Kyle · 11/05/2017 at 22:56

      Houston not playing on the weekend

Jamie · 11/05/2017 at 19:27

Treloar and Houston to Yeo and Heeney? or Hampton and houston to yeo and berry? Not sure I leave enough room for cash generation, having said that Heeney is projected to make 50k which may be more than some rookies…

Jim_bob321 · 11/05/2017 at 19:28

Hey Community,
What do u think of these…..
Beams to Yeo (Captain Loophole)
Treloar to Dusty
Thanks

    K-Bar · 11/05/2017 at 19:48

    Very similar to my options..
    I went Beams/O'Meara to Dusty/Yeo.

    Still not sure on Dusty or Zerrett though.

K-Bar · 11/05/2017 at 19:42

Dusty or Zerrett?
Both around 110 Ave and both around 520k
Bearing in mind i need some Bye cover.
With the intention of possibly picking the other up after/around byes

LHMORWOOD · 11/05/2017 at 19:42

Jack Steven or Josh Kelly for Beams????

    Brian · 11/05/2017 at 19:47

    Jack usually scores well when the saints win and they should win their fair share this year.
    He could be a great pod

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 21:45

    Jack

    FCAbel · 12/05/2017 at 12:55

    Still waiting to see the effect coniglio has on kelly. I think it will improve his scores which makes him very likable. Hard to find a knock Oct on Steven or the saints at that price.

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 13:22

    Jack Stevens has just hit peak fitness, and is good value.

Brian · 11/05/2017 at 19:43

Soldo named for Richmond. I wonder how how this will effect The Nank. Hopefully not too much.

    Holty · 11/05/2017 at 20:29

    On the extended list though. 3 who have been selected wont play. Hopefully he doesn't play but certainly didnt do anything wrong last week.

      Derek · 11/05/2017 at 21:45

      I'm getting rid of Nank

        Cogla13 · 11/05/2017 at 22:45

        yah … he should ton then. thanks.

        FCAbel · 12/05/2017 at 12:56

        Big call. Might be a good one.

    Captain Risky · 11/05/2017 at 20:48

    I think Elton gets dropped, Soldo stays in and Nank might play a bit at half fwd.

    Nank is a pretty good contested mark, not sure sure about his ability to kick goals though.

min0008 · 11/05/2017 at 19:50

Thoughts on Otten and Houston out for Simpson and Buddy.

Crow · 11/05/2017 at 19:52

Who would the community pick between Yeo and Heeney ?

    Pete · 11/05/2017 at 19:55

    Heeney a risk coming back from glandular fever. I'd go Yeo.

    FCAbel · 12/05/2017 at 12:57

    Money as side, Yeo by far.

Pete · 11/05/2017 at 19:53

J Lloyd or Z Williams or Z Jones or any defender under $490k ?

    FCAbel · 12/05/2017 at 12:57

    Lloyd for me if bye structure can take it.

Joshua · 11/05/2017 at 19:59

Hampton and Houston out for berry and Yeo. Otten survives for another week, thoughts?

    Joshua · 11/05/2017 at 20:03

    Or cover Houston with parsons and Otten up to rance. Please help, the situation is driving me insane

      jimbo · 12/05/2017 at 09:22

      first option

    Lazza · 12/05/2017 at 09:47

    I have to cover a fwd donut due to Batic and Houston outs, so doing the same trade-out… but bringing in Franklin and Berry cos I can't afford Yeo (+$57.5k) otherwise would have traded both Otten and Hampton but my DPP doesn't work for me due to spud Pickett and Treloar screwing up my Adams switch to DEF.

    FCAbel · 12/05/2017 at 12:58

    Greg trades. Otton still good through byes Imo

Pman · 11/05/2017 at 19:59

Playing for Cash Leagues so need wins and with Treloar out (and massively disappointing this year) and Pendles being held ransom to the pending arrival of hopefully a future Father/Son I can't afford to have them both missing. So am thinking Treloar out for the Bont and Hampton for either Berry or EVW (not sure who has better JS?) and $150K in bank? Would appreciate any feedback as hate sideways trades but need leage wins.

    Declan · 11/05/2017 at 20:04

    Berry better JS than EVW

    JohndJames · 11/05/2017 at 21:27

    Treloar to Bont a no brainer.

Krazee-Eyez Killa · 11/05/2017 at 20:08

Sticking with Otten to Pendles via Adams going back in DEF and Butler to Heeney. Hopefully SPP to Danger next week.

Leaves me with this team, 21 trades and around 90k. Want to also turn Marchbank into somebody like Shaw or Simpson pretty soon. Sticking with Z Jones and Steele for as long as I can. Thinking Jones will stay regardless.

Docherty, Adams, Laird, Z Jones, Marchbank, Melican (Newman, T Williamson)

Bont, Rocky, Pendles, Fyfe, JPK, Selwood, T Mitchell, SPP (Fisher, Atley, Deluca Cardillo)

Sandi, Grundy (Stnrndndndninca)

Dahlhaus, Buddy, Steele, Heeney, Nank, Parsons (Balic, Eddy)

Tommo09 · 11/05/2017 at 20:09

Is it worth waiting a week on Pendles with his baby thing??
Even if he does play he may be distracted
Thoughts???

    Dnoyes · 11/05/2017 at 21:29

    I'm not worried about him being distracted, but I don't want to bring him in just to miss out next weekend. I'll need all my players with the Suns and Power boys out.

    Tyruddanaut · 11/05/2017 at 21:33

    Stay away from him. I didn't know about his baby and got him last week. His mind is other places

    Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 11:22

    Ask his wife.

Banga · 11/05/2017 at 20:10

Hey guys, which option is better?

Option 1: Hampton and Houston for Rance and Heeney (picking heeney leaves me with 4 premo fwds out round 11 bye, 7 out in total)
Option 2: Hampton and Otten for Rance and Shaw (means i have to play Hannan on field, and also 8 premos out during round 13 bye
Option 3: Otten and Houston for Rance and Yeo (Best option in terms of bye structure, but have to keep hampton for another week.)

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 20:27

    3 – best get your structures right and lose 10k (I am doing the same thing)

    asdfghjk · 11/05/2017 at 20:58

    number 1 or 2
    dont keep hapton he is bleeding cash with a 91 breakeven

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 21:44

    Hold Hampton. Could be another 100. Crows have some great games

      FCAbel · 12/05/2017 at 13:00

      May be a pod with all the trade outs

TOPHAWK1 · 11/05/2017 at 20:11

Parsons has done a Berry…..AGAIN!!

Parsons named after 19 SC last week. (Black dropped after his 67…Wow)

Who would have thought it. Berry got named after his score of 14 SC a few weeks back. Could be good omen for Parsons. Berry's form improved dramatically after unexpectedly holding his place in the team after his mega spud effort.. Hopefully Parsons can do the same!

I thought my luck had run out as I own both Berry and Parsons. Not complaining though.

    INPieman · 11/05/2017 at 20:33

    They obviously rate him TH. Let's hop Parsons can bounce back with a Pickettesque 34

      TOPHAWK1 · 11/05/2017 at 21:43

      Agreed. But I am greedy. Parsonique = big tonne

    BlueNath · 11/05/2017 at 21:18

    Just because a player doesn't score well in SC, doesn't mean they didn't play their role for the team. If anyone saw Parsons first two games they would know he was always going to get more opportunities. Despite the reactions of many on these forums, Parsons is a great pick in a year where quality cash cows are scarce. I'm hoping for a 70+ output this week against the worst midfield pressuring side in the comp (and moreso if Selwood doesn't get up)

      Derek · 11/05/2017 at 21:41

      I watched him play the Hawks. I liked him

    Tyruddanaut · 11/05/2017 at 21:32

    This week saved me.

    In: Newman, Stewart
    Out: Treloar (I really want to ditch him now)

      Russty_ · 11/05/2017 at 22:44

      Newman still might not play, big bench for coach to choose from, Stewart at least is named onfield.

    Rick Grimes · 12/05/2017 at 08:17

    I'm putting him on the park, even. Had choice of him or Hannan. Both spuds to be fair.

Tom · 11/05/2017 at 20:12

Hampton to Rance this week 😉

Andrew · 11/05/2017 at 20:15

Which 2 do I field out of Barrett, Fisher and Myers?

    Ja191 · 11/05/2017 at 20:22

    Barrett myers

    Pablo · 12/05/2017 at 08:40

    Barret, Fisher

RoyWetard · 11/05/2017 at 20:22

Trade in EVW or Myers?

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 20:26

    Myers

Yeo, Rance and Merrett (Berry) or Yeo, Adams and Dusty (Mcniece)

    JoshA · 11/05/2017 at 20:35

    2

baxter · 11/05/2017 at 20:31

Rance or Shaw??

    JoshA · 11/05/2017 at 20:35

    Shaw for me

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 21:00

    Both

    Shaw is playing Collingwood this week. Defence usually score well against pies. Plus Kennedy is out for year.

    FCAbel · 12/05/2017 at 13:01

    Shaw

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 13:32

    Rance

FizzEm · 11/05/2017 at 20:31

whose the DEF to bring in for hampton? moneys not a problem… can we trust roberton ZJones or stay with an adams or simpson??

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 11/05/2017 at 21:09

    I'm bringing in the best Doc.

      Derek · 11/05/2017 at 21:40

      I'm jealous

Bitta · 11/05/2017 at 20:31

Houston to JJK or Buddy? leaning towards JJK but still a bit unsure

    Sam · 12/05/2017 at 08:07

    I'd say buddy if he works for your bye structure

    SF4 · 12/05/2017 at 13:48

    Buddy, will save you some cash.

John · 11/05/2017 at 20:35

who is the better option to bring in,

Heath Shaw or Lloyd?

    Relton · 11/05/2017 at 20:37

    i am a fan of LLoyd especially with DPP

    FCAbel · 12/05/2017 at 13:01

    Great question. Byes and history and injuries say Shaw.

Relton · 11/05/2017 at 20:35

is bont the obvious trade up target for JOM? if not throw other options at me please

    Lazza · 12/05/2017 at 09:50

    Any trade up to Bont is worthwhile as long as it fits with your Bye strategy

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 12:50

    Get the Bont asap..

INPieman · 11/05/2017 at 20:38

Dear B. Preuss,

I'm not going to consider you until you have 90 Hit outs, 50 to advantage. 30 kicks, 15 handballs, 10 tackles, 8 goals at 97% DE.

Regards,
B.Scott

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 21:01

    I've been lied to

    neil demons delight · 11/05/2017 at 21:11

    majak will get a game first

    David · 11/05/2017 at 21:21

    The Preuss experiments is over lads. Time to move on.

      Derek · 11/05/2017 at 21:22

      Yep

        Derek · 11/05/2017 at 21:39

        If Newman doesn't get named he will go as well.

        Preuss and Newman for Shaw and Myers

    Dutch · 11/05/2017 at 21:47

    My current plan is to trade Preuss out for R9, move Nank from Fwd to Ruck for the week to cover for Witts, then move Nank back to Fwd for R10 and get either Strnadica or Cameron into my R3 position for the rest of the year.

    Disappointed Preuss is not looking like coming back in, but his cash generation to date has still made it worth the while.

      Randomcliche · 11/05/2017 at 22:15

      Nice plan!

      INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 07:14

      Like it Dutch. But also have a look at Soldo this week. Ruck only but he's playing & Nank is back in the team. Worth a look

big man · 11/05/2017 at 20:55

bringing out treloar and hampton, have 200 k in the bank
trade in jack steven, and rance
or melican and another mid for some extra cash so i can get rocky in next week
(may be able to bring in rocky for in the first trade if trade out spp and hunt next week)

need help, cheers

Gordon · 11/05/2017 at 21:00

Whose had a gutful of Treloar and trading his clanger riddled arse out this weekend? I'm going to take this opportunity to ditch him for an underpriced premo and also tweak my bye structure for the better at the same time.

    Dutch · 11/05/2017 at 21:05

    I'm holding him – and hoping like hell he'll come back with a vengeance after a week's rest ….

    big man · 11/05/2017 at 21:06

    put jack steven in
    his last three games have been 88, 108 and 121
    at 506k he's gone down 50k
    a great premo downgrade

      Don't Blush Baby · 11/05/2017 at 21:07

      holding

    Aaron · 11/05/2017 at 21:12

    He's dead to me too. Usually loath to sideways premos and have persisted with him for 7 looooooong weeks but life is too short to tolerate soiled jocks for that long. I'll sure as sh*t sleep easier that's for damn sure!

    Francis · 11/05/2017 at 21:17

    No way he'll be a top 10 mid given the way Champion Data is mega penalising turnovers and clangers this season. In fact I doubt he will finish top 25 from here. So this all the excuse I needed to take him down back of the bungalow to help me find De Goey's lost dog. 🙂

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 21:22

    What is actually wrong? What is his injury

      Isaac · 11/05/2017 at 21:24

      Supposedly a sore ankle but the Pies are being very coy about the whole situation which leads me to believe it's a little more than that.

      Russty_ · 11/05/2017 at 22:51

      I read he also has groin soreness too Derek.

      hedski · 11/05/2017 at 23:35

      Shit haircut

        Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 01:09

        Lol, yeah and he kicks it like most of the Women in the WAFL.

        INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 07:15

        LOL Hedski. Bang on!!!

    BlueNath · 11/05/2017 at 21:23

    No matter how many times wise heads preach "no sideways trades", there will always be those who will dangle their balls out there. A rested Trealor may just be the tonic for him to produce the output we expected at the beginning of the season.

      Derek · 11/05/2017 at 21:37

      Agree

      Unless the injury is bad. Hold him

        Dutch · 11/05/2017 at 21:43

        Agree with Derek.
        If you started with him (like I did) he has gone through most of his value loss already – even if he continues to spud up with 70/80/90 scores he'll only drop another $30-50k in value – but it's more likely he'll at least average 90-100 from here, maybe even 100-110, which is better than most rooks / midpricers in our teams. We can evaluate during / after byes whether he'll return to premium output or not, and get rid of him then if needed and number of trades allows. Remember we need to strike a balance between cash generation and point accumulation and now is not the time to put a big dent in the latter.

      Tyson · 11/05/2017 at 21:40

      Well how many people traded out Beams last week?? No doubt your good self. Blanket statements are just not worth the paper they are written on so thanks for the sermon. Each coach needs to consider their own situation. Some will be suited to holding and others will be better suited to trading which will come down to factors such as cover, rank, bye structures, coaching style and a dozen other variables. What the right answer is no one knows until round 23 has concluded.

    Geoff · 11/05/2017 at 22:03

    I actually believe there is more validity to sideways trading this season. The reason being that the value of a trade has depreciated with all our cash cow woes. So where last season we were netting on average about $150,000 on a downgrade that is probably closer to $100,000 this season. So burning a trade to remedy a toxic relationship with an underperforming premo is probably only costing your total team value less than $100,000 this season as you'd just be using that trade cashing out some crappy rookie like Pickett anyway.

    Patrick12 · 11/05/2017 at 22:10

    Yeah when you think about many of us were considering cutting Treloar loose at his bye. All that's happened is that his bye has come 5 weeks early ha ha. So instead of banking say an extra 50-75pts in R13 you are just banking that gain in R8. Christmas has come early Treloar sufferers! 🙂

    Mick Malthouse · 11/05/2017 at 22:38

    Pies are cooked! Bucks is a dead man walking and everyone knows it. Other than Adams every other SC relevant Pie premo has not matched their previous season average. You'd be wise to get off Treloar whilst you can.

    Stapleton · 11/05/2017 at 22:56

    Treloar is a MUST hold you fwits. Do you think trades grow on trees or something??

      Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 01:11

      Opinions are like arseholes though…everyone has one. There's no "must" anything this year.

        BradK · 12/05/2017 at 01:28

        Lol. Just admit it, all u tools are just trying to justify trading treloar, when all he needs is to score the 140+ odd he scored a few weeks ago, every few weeks, for him to average 100- 110+. I've done it too this season – I traded out ablett early, only for him to score big and become a top 5 mid again. But as harsh as it is, you need to put the past few games behind you and look at the current situation. Imagine choosing your side from scratch and picking up treloar for 520,000 on your 'starting, fresh team'. You're dammed right I'd pick treloar at that price.. just like I'd pick anyone for that price with the 'proven potential' to average 110+. Some people have to learn the hard way that trades dont grow on trees, and your team has already lost for the year if you opt out now while he's at rock bottom. Read this comment in 3 weeks and I can guarantee you will agree.

          BradK · 12/05/2017 at 01:33

          Hannebery is averaging 94 this year and everyone is (rightfully) trading him in. Similar situation – take a breath and imagine a clean slate. You're god dam right you'll thank me later.

          Cameron · 12/05/2017 at 01:43

          Yeah whatever you say Braaaaaad. I can really see a queue lining up around the block to get on Treloar in the next few weeks …. NOT! Have you not been watching footy this season maaaaaaaaaaate. The kid can't kick for sh1t and and has only just read Bucks memo to focus on handballing instead. The Supercoach scorers have also ratcheded up clanger penalties so he's never going to produce the goods, on any consistent basis, under this new scoring regime. Sometimes you just have to man up and admit you got it dead wrong and not let your pride get in the way of what needs to be done – which is cut your losses before you dig yourself an even bigger hole and completely write off your 2017 season.

            Rick Grimes · 12/05/2017 at 11:12

            Same can be said for pretty much every premium this year, they're all spudding it up from week to week. I back Treloar to get his game I'm order and bang out 110+ from here on. I hope no one else jumps on, great pod

Joshua · 11/05/2017 at 21:01

If i use Eddy as a loophole, will i have time to decide to take tarantos score (4:35 start) or if he spuds it then go Parsons (7:25 start)?

    Weasel · 11/05/2017 at 21:48

    GWS game should be done and dusted 20 minutes before the Cats game. Even so, you'll know at 3/4 time if Taranto's score should be a keeper.

asdfg · 11/05/2017 at 21:14

bringing out treloar and hampton,have 200 k in the bank
bring in jack steven

Cole · 11/05/2017 at 21:17

Laird Howe Shaw Otten Hampton Stewart (Hibberd NM) (EVW)
Danger dusty JPK Fyfe Titch Treloar Beams SPP (Barret) (Fisher) (Deluca Cardillo)
Grundy Sandi (strndica)
Dahl Macrae Nank Butler Balic Parsons (Greene) (eddy)

Was going to do beams to bont and otten to simpson, but now going to do beams to bont and treloar to yeo. Avoids me a doughnut this week in the forward line and additional flexibility. Thoughts?

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 23:03

    Toughie. I really wouldn't want to trade treloar. Barrett and Fisher on field for beams and Treloar. Butler to Yeo and beams to myers. Avoids a zero and keeps a premo. Just a suggestion – but whatever floats your boat.

Joshua · 11/05/2017 at 21:23

Myers or Berry?

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 22:54

    Berry – good JS and proven. Give myers another week to get selected (and not injured)

Jono · 11/05/2017 at 21:24

Otten and Hampton for buddy and Rance…Beams on bench $50k change but have to field parsons….

Jordan · 11/05/2017 at 21:32

I have to bring in a rookie ruckman this week to move nank to forward line, do I bring in soldo hoping he rises and holds his sport of strndica or cameron

    Brendan Green · 11/05/2017 at 21:36

    Ah well jordan soldo could get you cash generation but not good job security. Darcey Cameron would be good to swap between from nank but can't guarantee him getting anytime soon

      Jack · 11/05/2017 at 21:56

      Get big Ivan Soldo

      FCAbel · 12/05/2017 at 13:03

      Must get dpp. Cameron may play so maybe him.

    Randomcliche · 11/05/2017 at 22:21

    Dpp for the bye?

garfield_da_cat · 11/05/2017 at 21:34

I have 141k in the bank and need to trade Hampton out which would give me 447k but i don't know who to trade in in his place? any thoughts?

    Leeds17 · 11/05/2017 at 21:48

    If you're feeling ballsy Bernie Vince.

      garfield_da_cat · 11/05/2017 at 21:58

      why do you say him?

        Leeds17 · 11/05/2017 at 22:01

        He's under the 447K, proven seasonal 90ave, has had a couple injury affected scores (broken toe), good bye for a defender, DPP, as D6 i don't think it's absolutely crazy but like I said it'd be ballsy.

        Smarter move would probably be to downgrade Hampton to Berry.

          garfield_da_cat · 11/05/2017 at 22:13

          might take the smart move and go berry. cheers for the advice

    Randomcliche · 11/05/2017 at 22:22

    At 447,900 harbrow? Rnd 9 bye n all.

      garfield_da_cat · 11/05/2017 at 22:42

      only got 447,000 🙁

        Randomcliche2 · 12/05/2017 at 14:13

        Without seeing your team, bye structures etc (most heavy rnd 13 in Def), here is one Michael Johnson, yeah teeth are long, but looks in good form, still priced at circa 80ppt/game will easily beat that and I reckon he'll easily go 90+ from here on out….worth a shot. He'll make you $50k to $100k in value I reckon, might be more than Berry….bhahahaa probs not but hey

Brendan · 11/05/2017 at 21:34

Is Jack Steven a good P.O.D?

    Jordan · 11/05/2017 at 21:44

    So inconsistent but could be the difference between winning and losing the 50k so kys

      Slut jones · 11/05/2017 at 21:51

      Ok thanks for the insightful comment

    Coon cheese · 11/05/2017 at 21:54

    He's ight dog

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 22:04

    Massive POD. Not in my top 10 but in next group.

    Saints have a deep midfield so there could be a lot of point sharing. Already seen Kobe Stevens push Steele out of midfield last couple of weeks.

    Had a great second half of 2016, he will give you a good crack, but will he share points?

    Randomcliche2 · 12/05/2017 at 14:16

    Yes, I reckon he's the best mid at saints behind a fit armitage, which they haven't had in a while. At 1.5% ownership, a very good POD.

Don't Blush Baby · 11/05/2017 at 21:35

I see tonight J.Berry locked up by the Lions until 2020 , JS this year should be a plus ?

    Leeds17 · 11/05/2017 at 21:48

    Named on the Ball I know it doesn't mean much but at the same time good to see.

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 22:00

    They love him, that's why I started with him. Has DPP

    Big Ben · 11/05/2017 at 22:18

    Just can't bring myself to pay $170K for a rookie after all that shite I went through with the likes of Simpkin and Kennedy. Just can't see Berry making another $100K on top of his current buy in price especially when Beams returns next week. If you've already got him then I suppose good for you but no way would I trade him in this week.

      Northerner · 12/05/2017 at 04:59

      Defensive rookie downgrade options often dry up later in the year. I think he's a valid pick due to DPP and JS given bye rounds approaching.

Leeds17 · 11/05/2017 at 21:39

If you had to keep one of these blokes for the rest of the season which one would it be

Adam Treloar
or
Matt Crouch

    EricZ · 11/05/2017 at 21:51

    Not sure either are SuperCoach relevant so wouldn't be targeting either one. More Dream Team players for mine. If you have them already well simple answer is you need to hold both.

    TigerNut · 11/05/2017 at 21:56

    Crouch for sure mate….Averaging 33 touches a game! 2nd in the AFL. I'd hold both. One less decent player for your team. Surely more pressing issues. Take the pain for a week on Treloar

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 22:53

    Keep both – until rd 13 and then probably burn treloar

Doc · 11/05/2017 at 21:42

Hampton to Jack Steven
Houston to Yeo-Yeo

Thoughts?

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 22:52

    Like it

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 02:42

    2 bangin trades for the week Doc.

Rivo · 11/05/2017 at 21:48

Lekdog – another great post.

And another week of utter chaos.

Defence ok with full bench so trading Otten/Hampton not a priority with outs including Treloar, Ballic, Houston, Eddy and maybe even Butler.

Really wanted Bont, Heeney, Simpson.

Any suggestions here? 3 options so far….

1 Treloar & Houston to Bont & JJK;
2. Otten & Houston to Simpson & Heeney;
3. Houston & Pickett to Heeney & Tom Boyd.

    Derek · 11/05/2017 at 21:58

    Of those 3 choices. I would go 2.

      Rivo · 11/05/2017 at 22:03

      Thanks Derek. My heads been spinning on this since team selections. If I take this option, the Bont will have to wait. Gee I hope Butler plays!

    Randomcliche · 11/05/2017 at 22:24

    2. Easy!

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 22:52

    2

      Rivo · 12/05/2017 at 07:36

      What if Butler is not playing? Bench would be Eddy and Ballic after trades. Mid Fwd swing at M10 is Pickett.

SirSamuel016 · 11/05/2017 at 21:53

Should I trade Hampton for Jake Lloyd or Jarrod Berry? Lloyd would be a 2nd upgrade for this round, whereas Berry would make me some cash by downgrading and leave me 320k odd for a future upgrde to Pendlebury. I could also just go Otten/Hampton to Adams.

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 22:21

    lloyd

      SirSamuel016 · 12/05/2017 at 13:58

      Ayy, went for Lloyd in the end. Copping a duck egg in the forward line because Balic isn't playing but there's not much else I can do.

    Nick · 11/05/2017 at 23:05

    I'm doing Hampton to Adams

mich · 11/05/2017 at 22:00

What does the community think about zac williams? top 8 defender material?

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 22:52

    yeah I think so. Nice POD as well. Doesn't have a huge ceiling but consistent.

Dusty · 11/05/2017 at 22:13

How many weeks will treloar miss?

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 22:20

    hopefully one.

    Nice mullet btw.

    Bucks · 11/05/2017 at 22:25

    At least one.

TigerNut · 11/05/2017 at 22:28

I don't have Pendles but all this talk….He plays well against GWS. I bet he comes out with a 150 this week

    Steeeve · 11/05/2017 at 23:02

    I'm bringing him in and making him Captain

      hedski · 11/05/2017 at 23:43

      Did that last week Steeeve 🙁

Derek · 11/05/2017 at 22:47

Soldo named for Richmond. Any nervous Nank owners?

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 22:51

    Yup! He is named in the forward line though so hopefully he plays more up front and leaves Nankdaddy to do the ruck work.

      Jordan · 11/05/2017 at 23:00

      His soldo an option for r3 as I need to trade a rookie in to move nank to forward line or do I need someone with dpp

    Patrick12 · 11/05/2017 at 23:08

    Nervous no way, will be sleeping like a baby tonight, especially after I finally gave Treloar the arse.

    Ja191 · 12/05/2017 at 05:48

    Shouldn't affect him too much. Grigg was doing r3 before so he'll be a handy replacement

      neil demons delight · 12/05/2017 at 08:30

      how can grigg be r3

    Leeds17 · 12/05/2017 at 05:52

    Yes and know, I don't mind the idea of Nank spending a little more time forward get's his points around the ground though i suppose.
    Can't see Soldo last long to be honest

      Captain Risky · 12/05/2017 at 09:17

      The Tigers seem to like giving the new players about 3 weeks, then he'd be out you'd think.

      A bit of experience and a good look at them. Elton hasn't done much, Griffiths concussed, Vickery gone!! Wouldn't mind seeing Chol have a crack again, but not showing much in the VFL right now.

    Tom · 12/05/2017 at 17:19

    Soldo dropped!

jimmy · 11/05/2017 at 23:00

Option 1 – Hampton to Berry, Houston to Franklin (leaves $25k)

Option 2 – Hampton to Berry, Houston to Johnson (leaves around $300k to upgrade people in coming weeks)

    Finnius123 · 11/05/2017 at 23:14

    1 – johnson is only in the squad before his first game (might not even get picked this weekend!) Wait till he is selcted and on the bubble before bringing him in.

Spanner · 11/05/2017 at 23:03

If I'm only playing for league, and certain I'll get a finals spot, do I even need to worry about the bye rounds (We're all pretty new to supercoach) and instead just worry about having the best squad come finals?.

    Russty_ · 11/05/2017 at 23:15

    Not really Spanner, you generally only have one bad week out of the 3, where you can't get 18 on the field, you have the option of 3 trades each round of the byes too.

    If league performance is your only concern then the byes are of little concern to you. In fact you are probably better off being skewed with your bye structure so that you win your leagues in 2 of 3 bye rounds by pretty much tanking one of the bye rounds but being super strong in the other 2. Most coaches are concerned with rank so it's in their best interest to be as balanced as possible but you can exploit that fact by loading up with players in 2 of the 3 rounds instead.

      Northerner · 12/05/2017 at 04:54

      I don't think this strategy works this year. Second bye round will not be an issue for anyone and most should be fine for last bye round. So I think there'll be more evenness across teams in the bye rounds this year.

TigerNut · 11/05/2017 at 23:07

Kade Simpson breakeven 55. $515k. Good trade in option this week

Jordan · 11/05/2017 at 23:17

Trade out beams or Sloane this week for Bont or Adams in defence

Haze · 11/05/2017 at 23:25

Was all set to trade Otten for Adams but now thinking I need to avoid donuts instead. Treloar, Beams, Greene, – you're all killing me. Going for league win so can't afford to drop games. So thoughts,do I go:
Option 1 – Treloar downgrade to mutimer / berry then Houston to premo forward, maybe JK
Or
Option 2 – bench Treloar with Beams and play fisher in mids to avoid 0, and trade Otten to Adams and Houston downgrade to rookie forward, no idea who this could be though!

Peter Demetriou · 11/05/2017 at 23:26

Team: 19 Trades – $18.5k
DEF – Laird, Shaw, Rance, Otten, Hampton, Marchbank (Newman) (Stewart)
MID – Dangerfield, Pendlebury, T.Mitchell, Fyfe, Kennedy, Hannebery, Beams, Powell-Pepper (Balic) Barrett) (Fisher)
RUC- Sandilands, Witts (Preuss)
FOR- Dahlaus, Macrae, Steel, Roughead, Nankervis, Butler (Hannan) (Parsons)

I really want to go Hampton – T.Adams but need to downgrade to do so,
The only way i can get cash is going Otten – McNeice who isn't playing [have Newman and steward on field, who both have shakey security]
Or go beams to Myers a week early. [better bye structure, get to carry a playing player through the byes in Otten]

Someone please help me out and possibly spot any other options?

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 01:24

    Stewart is named onfield, Newman maybe but maybe not.

    Barrett and Fisher are playing so you could bench Beams for the week.

    Parsons and Hannan are playing so can cover Butler not playing this week.

    I think you know what's the best call, Beams out for Myers and Hampton out for Adams..and then decide which midfield rook you want to play, good team by the way 🙂

TigerNut · 11/05/2017 at 23:51

Hey Community I would love some thoughts on what I should do this week. Team looking good…in the top 4000 overall. $339k in kitty.
DEF: Doc, Lloyd, Otten, Marchbank, McGrath, Williamson (Stewart, Vickers-Willis)
MID: Danger, T Mitchell, D Martin, Heppell, Fyfe, Wines, Josh Kelly, Beams (Parfitt, Barrett, Hibberd)
RUC: Martin, Witts (Preuss)
FWD: Yeo, Macrae, Kennedy, Steele, Nank, Parsons (Black, Eddy)

First thought was Option 1: Beams out Bont/Neale in, Otten out Laird in. leaves $32k in the bank
Option 2: Beams out Merrett in, Otten out Simpson in. leaves $134k in the bank

    TBone · 12/05/2017 at 00:18

    option 2 but bring adams in. you already have a bunch of defenders with r11 bye. but otherwise very good trades

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 08:40

    Both options good.

    You have a bit of dead wood on bench, maybe Parfitt to Simpson (via McGrath)

Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 01:35

That makes a bit more sense than Sloane lol, I think Beams, cause one more week might not be one more week.

Cameron · 12/05/2017 at 01:51

I'd cut loose both fantasy flogs myself. If you must hold Treloar, but crikey you would have to be a glutton for punishment to do that. A real self flagellating sick son of a b1tch! Neither guy will finish a top mid so wouldn't waste a further breath on either one especially if you have been a tightass on your trades to this point.

Jason · 12/05/2017 at 03:56

Shaw Simpson or Z.Williams?

Already have Doc Laird Adams

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 08:34

    Simmo, Shaw

Stickman · 12/05/2017 at 05:02

Looking at two donuts in the midfield this week with Swallow, Treloar, Beams and Pickett not playing as well as Mountford unlikely to play on the extended bench. Should I trade one or two of these players or just hold and cop the donut.

    Ja191 · 12/05/2017 at 05:46

    3 of the 4 should be long gone (swallow, Pickett in particular and beams). I'd hold Treloar and possibly paint the fence with beams to someone like dusty, zerrett, zorko, jpk eg (whatever fits your team/bye structure) and downgrade swallow to myers.

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 08:34

    I avoided the Swallow JOM & Beams selections because of these problems. If I was you I would trade both Swallow and Beams today.

JDP · 12/05/2017 at 06:39

Which one out of Sydney 's Jones or Lloyd??

    Danners · 12/05/2017 at 13:34

    Lloyd, more like to be a premo at the seasons end

pod · 12/05/2017 at 07:01

Looking for value this year, is Matt Taberner a possible FWD option? Only one game so far this season (vs Bombers) with 18 touches (13 kicks), 9 marks and 119 SC points. His current price is $336K and has a break even -42. Last year in round 12, he also produced an impressive 130 SC points (vs Lions) when he kicked 5 goals. He has also produced some absolutely shiiite scores in his past.

At 199cm / 97kg he has become a mobile monster down forward, he's now 23 yrs old. Was impressive last week, can he continue?

    Ranked1 · 12/05/2017 at 09:36

    That would be a huge gamble, most definitely put you ahead if it worked out and will probably get games now. I wouldn't try it personally but then again I haven't won this thing so who knows, good luck.

      pod · 12/05/2017 at 13:09

      Thanks Ranked1

    Brian · 12/05/2017 at 10:23

    Only one game so let's have this conversation next week.
    But I doubt he is a realistic option

Hawks · 12/05/2017 at 07:01

Please help.

Team is as follows-
Def – Adams, Laird, Simpson, Touhy, Shaw, Hampton (Newman, Hibberd – Nth)
Mid – Danger, Pendles, Oliver, T.Mitch, Fyfe, Kennedy, Hanners, SPP (Beams, Barrett, Fisher)
Rucks – Martin, Sandi (Strnadica)
Fwd – Dahlhaus, Macrae, Butler, Hannan, Hardwick, Parsons (Balic, Eddy)

I happy with my Def, Mids & Rucks, but my forward line is poor. I would have felt a lot better with Balic playing this week, but now having to rely on Hannan & Parsons scores on-field.

I have $13,400 in cash, but cant see a worthwhile rookie for Eddy or Hannan to be traded to. I have used 1 trade this week.

Any thoughts or assistance would be greatly appreciated, as perhaps I have over-looked someone.

    redherringfc · 12/05/2017 at 07:18

    I can't see how to get anyone on your forward line.

    Best i can suggest is to cull Hampton for Berry or Melican. Hampton will lose you money over the next couple of games.

    you could go early on Myers, or take a real punt on one of the rookies named for their 1st games.

    You could reverse your other trade to free up the extra cash (if that's the case) and then bring in Berry/Melican and Bring in Pederson, as suggested in the Podcast. If this is at all possibe.

      Hawks · 12/05/2017 at 07:53

      Thanks Redherring,

      Pederson is interesting, just thought I could trade Beams, switch Balic to the mids, and trade in anyone up to the cost of $490k.

      Just have to decide who the best option under $490k is?

      Buddy ?

        Finnius123 · 12/05/2017 at 09:13

        Definitely buddy – little cash in the bank is fine just as long as you know that next week you will be injecting it back in

Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 07:14

I feel violated by Ross community. Taunted with tasty morsels and gun rookies only for him to play them once, teasing them like a mouse to cheese, then tossing them aside like he did to StKilda when the food was gone from the pantry. FURL FUBARs our teams and it is time we took a stance. It has nothing to do that I am breaking into the top 1000 only to see RL f*ck my team when I need $$$ generation; it is my genuine care for player development and for the good of the game. FURL!

Mal · 12/05/2017 at 08:03

Hi community got 2 options this week.

1. Otten to shaw leaves me with $4k.
2. Otten to berry leaves me with $320k.

Can make either option work with my bye structure.

Leaning towards option 2 as berry will generate more cash in the short term then shaw and there's not to many def downgrades on the horizon.

Cheers in advance!

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 08:26

    Shaw is way better option. This week against Pies will go huge. Most defenders score well against Pies. Kennedy out, Shaw will have to kick even more to himself

Sam · 12/05/2017 at 08:07

Selection anxiety all over the park…have got 167k but down to 21 trades. Trying to be shrewd I could only burn 1 trade this week (Hampton to Rance). Only leaves me with peanuts (1,200) but still have some rookies to cash in. Thoughts??

Current team is:

Adams, Laird, March, Otten, Hampton, Stewart (EVW, Newman)

Danger, Fyfe, Pendles, Titch, Hannebery, SPP, Barrett, (Treloar, Fisher, Atley)

Grundy, Sandi (Preuss)

Buddy, Dahl, TJ Lynch, Nank, Butler, Hayward (Parsons, Pickett)

    Finnius123 · 12/05/2017 at 08:51

    I'm probably not the best person to talk about trades considering the fact that I have 17 trades left after this round – but I would suggest that you go paint the fence this week with rookies who are done (Otten/Butler). I think that this will leave dosh in your bank and keep your upgrade process going.

      Sam · 12/05/2017 at 09:01

      Otten downgrade, butler upgrade?

      Sam · 12/05/2017 at 09:08

      update – jumped on the berry bandwagon. With Hampton projected to lose more cash than Otten i've shipped Curtly out.

      Butler to JJK

        Finnius123 · 12/05/2017 at 09:12

        Nice – I did very similar except butler to yeo instead

          Sam · 12/05/2017 at 09:19

          I flipped a coin between the two…JJK won (probably shouldn't have used a double heads coin) Tempted by Yeo but think he'll nosedive if I get him on board…I'm off to find my balls and take some risks

red5 · 12/05/2017 at 08:42

Franklin or Heeney?

    Finnius123 · 12/05/2017 at 08:49

    Buddy

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 09:06

    Buddy

    Buddy · 12/05/2017 at 09:51

    Buddy

      INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 10:07

      Buddy. Kick another bag please

Hawks · 12/05/2017 at 08:51

Who to play on-field this week Parsons or Hannan, cant loophole, both playing at the same time.

Thinking Parsons must bounce back, but unsure.

Thoughts please.

    Holty · 12/05/2017 at 09:05

    Same predicament as me Hawk. Im going Parsons as Hannan might struggle against Adelaide

      Finnius123 · 12/05/2017 at 09:11

      same

    TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2017 at 09:15

    Parsons for me.

Kyle · 12/05/2017 at 09:04

Hampton > Bont via DPP swing
Houston > Yeo.
Should I be going another forward instead of Yeo? Feel like there aren't many forwards scoring well so we might have to take a few more risks this year ? Thoughts ?

    Sam · 12/05/2017 at 09:26

    What's your forward line looking like? I tossed a coin between Yeo and JJK (see above)

    Looking at the comparison, Yeo has outscored JJK in 5 of 7 rounds so far, is in 700 less teams and has a better B/E (although i'm guessing this one is a keeper so shouldn't matter)

davot · 12/05/2017 at 09:07

hibberd still a trade target?

    Finnius123 · 12/05/2017 at 09:11

    Trap for me

    Rick Grimes · 12/05/2017 at 11:50

    If you graph his 3 weeks it's heading to shit. Welcome.

HIDY · 12/05/2017 at 09:09

trade houstan and hampton or maybe spp for 2 400-500K or downgrade and upgrade to a 600K+?

Rooster XXX · 12/05/2017 at 09:24

Fair call…

Has to be said that all the sheep came out of the woodwork in relation to Murphy & Yeo a couple weeks back after they both had a low score in the same week – saying I told you so etc etc….. Where are they now? Murphy has continued his premo output and Yeo continue to go from strength to strength know that he has a clearly defined role in the WC side that is very SC friendly.
All players will have the occasional down week……

TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2017 at 09:31

Hi community,

Been pondering on another crucial trade decision this week….

I have no cognitive bias towards selecting Yeo into my side. I have never had him in my team, thus have never been burnt.

In light of this, it makes my decision pretty straight forward.

1- Yeo's form is just too hard to ignore. It has gone to the next level. (Elite)
2- mid/forward DPP swing.
3- Friendly round 12 bye.
4- Still reasonably priced at $525K.

OUT- Dayne Beams
IN- Elliot Yeo

Yeo deserves his spot. I think he is ready to deliver.

Cheers

    Sam · 12/05/2017 at 09:39

    Good plan – as per responses above, I went for JJK.

    Same as you TH, I've never had him and never been burnt…it's all the chat that makes me nervous. Following my response to Kyle I hit that beautiful reverse button and got him in.

    If it works great, if it doesn't, I'll win the thing next year 🙂

      TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2017 at 09:55

      I reverse trade all week. LOL I have already traded in Zach Merrett , Scott Pendlebury, Jack Macrea, Isaac Heeney, Jake Lloyd, and everytime I have hit reverse, reverse, reverse, reverse and reverse…….Now that I am all reversed out, I have finally decided to trade Elliot Yeo in this week. There are just too many upsides in this bloke to ignore. He will have some bad games during the season, but all in all I reckon Yeo is the real deal. Cheers mate.

        sddd · 12/05/2017 at 10:10

        Your nuts to go Yeo over Macrae. Get macrae he's a must have, will easily outscore him and be much more consistent

        INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 10:10

        I think that's a good trade. I went Beams to Adams last week TH. I intended to go Yeo in this week but I can't as McNeice is not playing. I think Beams to Yeo is absolutely a tick. Your removing a player who will not be top 8 Mid to a player who will most likely be top 6 Fwd

        SCdonkey · 12/05/2017 at 11:04

        Done the same traded in Dusty, Macrea and Rance hit the reverse button everytime. Then pick em again and again my finger just keeps clicking the reverse button.

        Finally found one that suited my team for the bye rounds. Closed the Supercoach website and won't be opening it until Sunday.

          Sam · 12/05/2017 at 13:36

          Haha I always aim for Sunday, then end up looking at the screen Saturday trying to increase the scores i'm looking at with pure brain power! I am yet to master this skill

jordan · 12/05/2017 at 09:55

is dan butler to dusty or yeo a good trade? I need to trade to avoid copping a zero… or do i go beams/treloar to bont?

    TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2017 at 10:08

    Not sure if trading out Butler right now is the way to go. His BE is still 56 and despite appearing to be levelling out, I reckon you should watch him for another week. He is very capable of punching out an 80-90 this week. If he spuds, (50 or less) you can look to trade him next week. Why not trade out Beams for Dusty/Yeo? Are you short on cash to make the switch? If so, why not trade in a rookie like Myers or Mutimer and then pull the trigger on Beams . I would not grab the Bont now. Far too bloody expensive. What till his price pulls back a bit before grabbing him. cheers

    INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 10:14

    Butler to a cheap premium is a good trade. I'd do that ahead of sideways of a premium. Hold Treloar. If Beams doesn't play next week get rid of him. 2 weeks for a quad is suspicious & especially with Beams

Jeff · 12/05/2017 at 10:07

Need some help picking a defender.
Hampton to Berry
Hampton to Lloyd
Hampton to Jones
Can afford doch but would rather find cheaper defensive Premos and free up some cash.
Already have Rance, Simpson, Adams, Laird

    TigerMAN · 12/05/2017 at 11:52

    Shaw good option. Should play all 22

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 13:48

    Shaw

Jemma · 12/05/2017 at 10:09

I am deciding on one of these this week.
Yeo, JJK, Merrett, Martin.
What order should I get these in? Can only get one of these in this week.

HIDY · 12/05/2017 at 10:12

TRADE IN
2 400K PLAYERS
OR
A 100K AND 600K

    Cole · 12/05/2017 at 10:29

    100K and 600K every day

      HIDY · 12/05/2017 at 10:43

      SO TAKE A BONT AND FISHER INSTEAD OF HIBBERD AND HEENEY

        Holty · 12/05/2017 at 11:52

        I would. You know Bont will be a top mid, Heeney and Hibberd are questionable. If you trade them in you are pretty much needing to keep them at their price. Ur choice though, if you believe they will be top 8 in their position, go for it

        Derek · 12/05/2017 at 13:48

        Yes

Pablo · 12/05/2017 at 10:12

Hi Community.
I have some good mid cover but I now have some choices to make. Do i go with Barret, SPP, or Berry on ground? No loophole option. Cheers.

FEARTHEBEARD · 12/05/2017 at 10:15

Any more news on Adams injury?

Do I bring in Simpson instead?

    hedski · 12/05/2017 at 12:54

    He's on the plane to Sydney, should be OK.

jordan · 12/05/2017 at 10:18

yeo or martin

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 12:48

    Martin

FEARTHEBEARD · 12/05/2017 at 10:20

Go early on O'Connor or McInnes?

Or chop Beams for Myers early?

Sellars1220 · 12/05/2017 at 10:39

Looking to trade out Zac fisher and Newman this week

Any suggestions on anyone I should trade in

I was thinking Myers and Mc'Niece

    Jeff · 12/05/2017 at 10:41

    Hold on both. Still money in them

      HarryO · 12/05/2017 at 11:10

      Newman i understand but why Fisher??

    Pablo · 12/05/2017 at 11:23

    Hold Fisher. If they play they stay. He still has money in him.

    Cogla13 · 12/05/2017 at 12:57

    McNiece isn't even playing and Fisher is ??? Newman might play yet. Hold.

iLoveNMFC · 12/05/2017 at 10:42

Which two?

Heeney and Rockliff?

OR

Yeo and Martin?

    HarryO · 12/05/2017 at 11:09

    Heeney & rocky. 100%

      TigerMAN · 12/05/2017 at 11:50

      I disagree Yeo and Martin for sure

        LoganJosh7 · 12/05/2017 at 14:01

        also disagree. rocky is getting cheaper and martin has great bye rounds

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 12:43

    Heeney and Rocky

    Lazza · 12/05/2017 at 13:21

    The interesting thing to note is that those in both your pairings have the same Bye…

    Option 2 would be the better outcome from a Bye perspective.. (based on a typical SC team)

    Rick · 12/05/2017 at 13:42

    Martin playing hurt. Heeney& Rocky

Nick · 12/05/2017 at 10:50

buddy

jake · 12/05/2017 at 10:56

Thoughts on Zac Jones as a DEF option?

    HarryO · 12/05/2017 at 11:12

    Also tempted by jones but just dont think he will be a top 6 defender…

    Danners · 12/05/2017 at 13:31

    Not yet if he's still doing alright in a couple weeks, maybe bring him in then

Andrew · 12/05/2017 at 11:04

Hoping for a few things to go my way this weekend in terms of scores for trade in targets. Best case scenario looking to have 540k to upgrade SPP or 524k to upgrade Butler (if they match their highest scores of the year).

Would be nice if N Roo had a bad week or Yeo matches his worst score of the year to keep him close to 540k! Otherwise it's looking at JPK or Dusty as a trade in option….

Ken · 12/05/2017 at 11:13

Treloar does have hawthorn and Brisbane coming up…that's if his injury is only one weeker…or should I just cut my losses and get in the BONT

    Lazza · 12/05/2017 at 13:22

    wait till R13

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 13:27

    Get the Bont

    Danners · 12/05/2017 at 13:30

    Hold, worry about getting to full premo first. He's only out for a week

      HarryO · 12/05/2017 at 15:36

      Hold

Jim_bob321 · 12/05/2017 at 11:19

Who should I put as emergency via loophole?
Zac Fisher or Jake Barrett
Cheers community

    Hawks · 12/05/2017 at 12:06

    Barrett for mine

Nick · 12/05/2017 at 11:40

Pendlebury or Rockliff, cheers community !

    Babo · 12/05/2017 at 11:45

    neither… wait on both of them

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 12:43

    Rocky

Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 11:41

The sleeper in the backs is Michael Hurley…terrific 3 round average (107, 109, 115) and usually consistent. Anyone considering? Great POD averaging 94.1 with a BE of 62. Sure to make some $$$

    HIDY · 12/05/2017 at 11:50

    SOUNDS ALRIGHT TO ME

      DacZawson · 12/05/2017 at 12:10

      Turn caps off mate

    Danners · 12/05/2017 at 13:29

    Indeed is a good POD, was one of top defenders before the drug bans

Doc · 12/05/2017 at 11:54

Lads,
Who should take my last midfield spot.
Zerret v Ebert v JPK v dusty v r.gray

    Hawks · 12/05/2017 at 12:08

    JPK – Sydney will turn the corner, and charge home, he will be amongst it.

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 12:30

    Zerrett all day

Mystic Mac · 12/05/2017 at 11:54

Reading all these "trading Treloar" comments is music to my ears. I will be saving a trade and hoping the bloke comes back fresh after a week off. Yes, he has had a very slow start the year. But, we know what the guy is capable of. Should be a nice POD soon.

    Captain Risky · 12/05/2017 at 12:07

    Hoping, but not knowing… will soon will be a POD, for better or worse?

    Hawks · 12/05/2017 at 12:09

    He wont be that much of a POD, as soon as he starts hitting targets I'm bring him in, and paying stuff all for him.

    That said, I think he is still a keep.

    Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 12:31

    I am worried the injury is far worse than we know otherwise why would they hide it and say it is a mystery injury? I'm holding him but I smell a few weeks.

Anyone heard anything about Adams (Collingwood) hurting his hand at training?

    DacZawson · 12/05/2017 at 12:10

    Boarded the plane so would be almost certain to play

      redgumwon · 12/05/2017 at 12:25

      Thanks

    Lazza · 12/05/2017 at 13:25

    Yeh, he had Treloar in his SC team and gave him a smack in the head … only hurt for a few minutes.

Nick · 12/05/2017 at 12:13

Thoughts on this trade community?
Trade out WHE to Myers via DPP (Macrae) and then Hampton to Adams?

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 12:42

    Not sure on Myers but Adams is a must have.

    Danners · 12/05/2017 at 13:28

    WHE still has a breakeven of 25 so HOLD, find another way to make the cash

Emmanuel · 12/05/2017 at 12:15

Hi Team,

Parsons and OMeera cost me top spot last week. Looking at another disaster this week and no idea what to do. Any thoughts would be most welcome.

D: Laird Shaw Adams Docherty Marchbank Otten (Newman, Stewart)
M: Danger Bont Fyfe Beams Treloar OMeera Dahlhaus SPP (Taranto Barrett Fisher)
R: Goldy Sandy
F: McRae Nank Steele WHE Houston Butler (Parsons Eddy)

Midfield is weak. Have $200k

Was thinking Houston to Heeney.

Not sure. What else to do. Who to hold and who to get rid of.

Thanks.

    neil demons delight · 12/05/2017 at 13:17

    mids is ur worry get rid of jom and beams for 2 prems looks better

    Lazza · 12/05/2017 at 13:41

    Your midfield is an issue … and your fwd line is weak.
    Back line is ok but Otten is ripe for a trade but you don't have a DPP cover so it will be a DEF trade … look at Berry …his DPP will help later. That will net you $206K…
    Trade out O'Meera which will give you another $318K for a total of $724K …. bring in Neale or Rockliffe .. you can afford anyone you like.
    Then work out your plan to get Dahl back in to the FWD line asap and also beef it up with some one like Yeo or another DPP.
    Next targets to move out … Houston Butler ….
    Be mindful of your byes.

red5 · 12/05/2017 at 12:19

Otten to Callum Mills?

    INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 12:56

    Why? Scored 50 last week & hasn't scored a ton this year

    FCAbel · 12/05/2017 at 13:06

    Think otton may outscore Mills this year.

      INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 13:10

      He is so far. And I can see that continuing

    neil demons delight · 12/05/2017 at 13:14

    6 weeks ago great no way now

    Lazza · 12/05/2017 at 13:29

    waste of a trade ….may as well hang on to Otten.. Mills average is less 14 points than Otten … and same price.

    What are you trying to achieve?

    Juzzy · 12/05/2017 at 14:30

    Agree with all the above comments.
    Even if he was scoring a lot better I would still be reluctant to pick him as he seems to have turned into an angry little bugger this year.

    He has been very lucky to avoid suspension at least two times and that's the last thing you need.

Jim_bob321 · 12/05/2017 at 12:27

Any good defender rookies I can downgrade Hampton to?
Already have T Stewart and EVW
Cheers community

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 12:39

    Mark O'Connor is all the talk down the Cattery. The Irish lad has only played 5 AFL games in his life!! I have him already so can't wait to see how it pans out.

      FEARTHEBEARD · 12/05/2017 at 12:59

      Sounds extremely sarcastic 😐

        pod · 12/05/2017 at 13:18

        Umm why?

      INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 13:25

      5 games in his life? Are you serious? If so WOW! But he's going to need to play 7 to be considered

      INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 13:32

      Shit Pod. Your onto something here. It's actually only 4 games! Been reading up on him & now I'm even thinking of rolling the dice! If your desperate for a downgrade this bloke might be a gun!

        pod · 12/05/2017 at 13:39

        Dangerfield's Tweet was read out on SEN this morning.. they are very happy to have him.

      Babo · 12/05/2017 at 13:35

      Which AFL club did O'Connor play 5 games for before Geelong?

      Maybe Brisbane when no-one was watching? 😉

        Jim_bob321 · 12/05/2017 at 13:43

        There is a lot of hype surrounding him…. lets hope he can actually DO something

          INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 13:49

          He played 2 practice matches in Feb & 4 games in the VFL this year. In November last year he was drafted as a project player having never played a game. How did champion data give him defender status if he's never played a game! His rise is unbelievable!!!!!!

            Jim_bob321 · 12/05/2017 at 13:56

            Do u know his stats during those games?

            pod · 12/05/2017 at 14:01

            Great question Pieman. A O'Connor quote from Cat website may be how CD gave him his defender status, otherwise how else??

            “Reading the game, I like to be behind the play at times and picking out options so we’ll see how it goes,” he said.

              INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 14:06

              Well we kind of need defence downgrades so thanks CD. His stats in the VFL are he's Av 15.5 disposals a game & mostly handballs. But looks around 80% DE. He Av 3 tackles a game & nearly 3 marks a game. Solid but don't go expecting good scores

    Jeppa · 12/05/2017 at 14:19

    Punters would be stark raving bonkers to trade him in this week. Last thing we need is another bench donut during the byes. There will be bugger all bubble boys in a couple of weeks so may as well sit tight and see what happens first.

      Just Jeff · 12/05/2017 at 14:36

      Yup most coaches are way too trigger happy with their trades. They see some hot premo opportunity they want to jump on and say to themselves how do they make happen almost regardless of the ramifications. The thing is that next week there will be some more fantastic opportunities to pounce on, and the week after that, and the week after that etc.Those who blow their load early may not be able to get on those opportunities in the coming weeks and be stuck with a low scoring or non playing rookie during the all important byes as well. Patience Grasshoppers!

        pod · 12/05/2017 at 14:41

        Any other year I'd agree with you.

          Jim_bob321 · 12/05/2017 at 15:19

          So………
          O'Connor or not… you've persuaded me to save a trade just to see if this Irish Lad can cope

Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 12:44

Berry or O'Connor

    INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 13:19

    Berry

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 13:23

    O'Connor but wait if you want, only his first game.

    Danners · 12/05/2017 at 13:27

    Berry, O'Connor has only been in Aus for 6 months so JS is pretty damn low

pod · 12/05/2017 at 12:47

Buddy

DavidSA · 12/05/2017 at 12:49

Bringing Berry in Houston out

Not bringing in Berry for cash gen I'm keeping the guy all year along with McGrath as my vital swing set.
Cash made going Houston > Berry
2nd trade was Merrett at 543k but changed it to the super consistent GWS mid who is amazingly still under 510k
Next week I'm looking at another cheap mid premo an boy we have lots to look at

    INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 13:19

    Nice plan David. Very solid

      DavidSA · 12/05/2017 at 13:31

      Thank you Pieman just can't see how I can afford to bring in players around that 550k this year

FEARTHEBEARD · 12/05/2017 at 12:55

ANYONE able to tell me much on O'Connor or McInnes?

Need to pull the trigger on 1 sadly.

    FEARTHEBEARD · 12/05/2017 at 12:58

    OR gamble with McNiece?

    INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 13:16

    Given the way the season has gone your almost certainly adding another dead rookie. McInnes played 2 games last season for an AV of 28. Putrid. Previous season he played 7 for an Av of 52. No way I'm picking this bloke pre bubble. O'Connor I know nothing about. Upgraded rookie. Don't pick any of them FTB

      INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 13:53

      Now that I have researched O'Connor I take that back. Ballsy pick but he's got a lot of love. And with damn good reason

        Juzzy · 12/05/2017 at 15:23

        Certainly one to watch INP.

        Heard Brian Stynes interviewed on SEN. Talked about him like he was bound to be the next GAJ.
        Also mentioned the animosity the Irish footy fans have towards us for pinching their golden boy.

HarryO · 12/05/2017 at 13:01

whose the must get targets down back this week? hampton must go his gooing to leak cash everywhere!
ZJones and roberton the real deal??

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 13:14

    Hampton will probably surprise us all and ton up.

    INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 13:19

    Roberton is a massive POD & very expensive. I wouldn't pick him at that price. I'll wait till post bye to look at him. I was watching Zac Jones last week. He's a beast. But don't expect scores like that often from him. Your also paying 150K more than people who started him. I don't like that

      Krazee-Eyez Killa · 12/05/2017 at 13:41

      started with Zak. He's going to be a keeper in my team. gun.

Joe · 12/05/2017 at 13:03

Rance or Roberton? Looking for a pod, and already have Laird and Heater as premos.

    Relton · 12/05/2017 at 13:09

    roberton for me .. or ZJones??

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 13:11

    I'm here.. go Roberton ahead of Rance at this stage.

    INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 13:23

    Roberton. But I wouldn't pick him up at that price. The only defenders I'd pick up above 550 are Doch Adams & Laird. They are proven

    Danners · 12/05/2017 at 13:26

    Rance, save the $90k and pick up Roberton cheaper later

      DavidSA · 12/05/2017 at 13:35

      Danners Bang on

FEARTHEBEARD · 12/05/2017 at 13:11

If I have Laird, Shaw, Doch already as premium d's and can't afford Adams if I take Berry in over a unproven rookie who would you lock in next for premium d?

Was always going Adams though only have 524,500 if I take Berry…

Looking at Simpson but been a bit off early on? Do I take another unproven rookie?

Do I keep Otten and cut Beams for Bont?

So confused today -_- got Trealor, Beams, Houston, Otten, Hampton all causing me shit 😐

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 16:34

    Simmo Rance get them

Rick Grimes · 12/05/2017 at 13:21

I keep hearing this comment, "but he isn't top 10". Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't select a player on whether he's currently top 10 but whether I think for the remaining weeks he'll be top 10. That might mean that come season end his total puts him down the list, but I'm only interested in the period I held the bloke.

    DavidSA · 12/05/2017 at 13:27

    Yup this fact seems to go over some peoples heads

      DavidSA · 12/05/2017 at 13:29

      Furthermore I see some people wanting to bring in 550k + for defenders and people who don't have Bont imo need to wait longer for him to drop under 575k which may never happen but the spends I'm seeing really worries me with the lack of cash gen this year

        Rick Grimes · 12/05/2017 at 13:35

        Agree. I can only afford to pick off bargains at the moment. Yes I wish I had Adams (although I still think he'll break down), but for $60-70k less i can pick up Shaw/Rance who have proven that they can produce on par performance. Unless a couple of awesome cash generators come along, I'm not sure how i'll get full premo. The likes of Marchbank and Steele will have to be with me for a quite a while me thinks.

          DavidSA · 12/05/2017 at 13:42

          Yup I'm keeping Marchbank until he reaches 400-420k range
          Good part about my backline is he is my D6 atm and when I trade him I have good cover on D7 & 8 using Berry, McGrath swing set

        Derek · 12/05/2017 at 16:33

        If your team is right up there, top 100… then I think you just need to get the best you can and just go for it and see what happens. Otherwise, pick off the cheap fallen premiums

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 16:30

    I think most people mean the future when they say he won't be in top 10. Well I do…… pretty obvious really……

Bob · 12/05/2017 at 13:24

Shaw or rance

    Danners · 12/05/2017 at 13:25

    Heater, more consistent and has a higher scoring potential

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 13:28

    Rance, Heater is cooked

      DavidSA · 12/05/2017 at 13:33

      If Shaw was to never do kick to self kick ins you would truly see he is on the big decline this year

    Rick Grimes · 12/05/2017 at 13:44

    Can't really go wrong with either. I think they'll both average 100 from here on out, which makes them good value .

    Randomcliche2 · 12/05/2017 at 14:21

    depends on your byes, both solid, but if you cover both Shaw.

      Derek · 12/05/2017 at 16:28

      Kennedy and Haynes out for GWS means more kicking for Shaw. Get him

Tom · 12/05/2017 at 13:37

Heeney or Wingard?

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 13:48

    I like Heeney, brought him in this week. Wingard has the bye next week.

edo · 12/05/2017 at 13:38

Option 1: Balic/Otten to Berry/Heeney- leaves me with 1 doughnut this week but rd 11 heavy
Option 2 Otten/Hampton to Berry/Adams- 2 doughnuts this week but bit more balance for the byes

TBone · 12/05/2017 at 13:47

Hampton to Simmo?(153k left in kitty)
Hampton to Lloyd?(180k left in kitty)
Or Hampton to JJ?(199k left in kitty)

    DavidSA · 12/05/2017 at 13:54

    i like last 2 options which one you choose will be down to bye structure

      Cogla13 · 12/05/2017 at 14:29

      They all have the same bye

Westy · 12/05/2017 at 13:51

Shaw & Yeo in
Houston & Hampton out.
Suitable?

    Big Ben · 12/05/2017 at 14:10

    Nah sorry those trades suck ass! Seriously did you really need to ask this? Or are you a just another poser bragging about his trade ins and wasting the community's time.

      Westy · 12/05/2017 at 14:14

      Well I did contemplate culling Treloar …

      Michael · 12/05/2017 at 14:17

      Shut up you flog

    Randomcliche2 · 12/05/2017 at 14:21

    Yep.

Just Jeff · 12/05/2017 at 14:04

Where the hell is the Panic Room? I'm panicking alright!

jake · 12/05/2017 at 14:12

Simpson, lloyd, Z.williams, Jones or heater? who is the best option?

    jake · 12/05/2017 at 14:24

    or rance?

      LEKD0G · 12/05/2017 at 14:59

      Simpson

        Jake · 12/05/2017 at 15:01

        cheers legend

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 16:18

    Simmo, Shaw, Rance.

    Rance has R12 bye

Jayden · 12/05/2017 at 16:06

Johannisen or touhy?

    burns. · 12/05/2017 at 16:35

    Depends on which fits your team the best and the byes

Derek · 12/05/2017 at 16:38

i'm not sure when the Swans team is fully announced, but i've got the guillotine nice and sharp…….. hello newman

TigerNut · 12/05/2017 at 17:25

Newman OUT. named as an Emergency

Marco_Polo94 · 12/05/2017 at 17:33

Neale vs the Bont vs Hanners.

Balls say Neale, Heart says Bont, Brain says Hanners.

Help please

    TigerNut · 12/05/2017 at 17:55

    you can ditch Hanners out of that equation. Im tossing up between Neale or Bont. Hard choice. I reckon Bont might get tagged tonight

    neil demons delight · 12/05/2017 at 20:01

    go with your heart

luke · 12/05/2017 at 18:17

Who is the best midfield upgrade under $580 ?

Henry · 12/05/2017 at 18:22

thoughts on getting rid of beams and newman for Cotchin and Berry?

Sellars1220 · 12/05/2017 at 18:38

Thoughts on Marco Paprone?
He's 307k and Had 95 first game and playing this week

Could be a trade in for Newman

    Lazza · 12/05/2017 at 21:33

    I'm watching very closely.. could be a real value pick to allow Premo conversion elsewhere.. could be a keeper up to the finals .. see how he goes this week..

Alby · 12/05/2017 at 18:58

I was wanting to get rid of Hampton this week but with Newman been an emergency should I hold off and get rid of Newman instead.
.

    Tyruddanaut · 12/05/2017 at 22:50

    No. Hampton will lose cash this week while Newman won't change.

Thebandit7 · 12/05/2017 at 19:10

What's everyone reckon about David Myers JS?

    Lazza · 12/05/2017 at 21:34

    Hasn't got much SC cred .. does not excel in any facet of the game … the only thing he has going for him is his price … probably double it if he can stay on the park..
