Supercoach RD9: LekDog’s Cheat Sheet

Published by Lekdog on


G’day Community, I think the Supercoach ship is beginning to right…

I’ve excluded big players like Dangerfield and Fyfe from this week’s Cheat Sheet because anyone who doesn’t have them sure as hell does not need me to tell them it’s time to bring them in.

Yet again we are limited with cash generation but Myers certainly helps that a little.

I think we need to focus heavily on the bye rounds with our trading and that goes for when we decide NOT to trade, for example I think the best thing we can do is hold Sam Powell-Pepper, why limit our warm bodies during the bye rounds?

Hit up my Twitter to see how last week’s Cheat Sheet did and make sure to hit me up in the comments with questions.

The BONT · 17/05/2017 at 20:03

Butler and Houston
Durdin and Myers

    Tyruddanaut · 17/05/2017 at 20:13

    For Heeney and Myers

Nathan · 17/05/2017 at 20:10

Hampton spp to Myers and hibberd(Mel)
That's my plans this week

    dave · 18/05/2017 at 14:37

    Is there anyone else who can go before SPP..? He'll be real handy rounds 11,12,13…

Dave · 17/05/2017 at 20:11

Cheat sheets preseason are important, these are brilliant! Outstanding work lekdog, miss you on the pods. Do your own!

    Austin · 17/05/2017 at 20:26

    Yeah please bring back those Thursday night videos. They were rippers mate and the best thing on this site. Actually prefer them to the cheat sheets if time is an issue for you.

      LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:33

      I get so many people asking for the videos back haha it's crazy how much love there was for them. My issue is that everything I put in them is covered by the Cheat Sheet and Patch's amazing Friday panic room

Jack · 17/05/2017 at 20:13

Is Isaac Heeney a must have ? This is probably the cheapest he will be.

    Tyruddanaut · 17/05/2017 at 20:18

    I'd say so but I don't see into crystal balls

    SF4 · 17/05/2017 at 21:04

    He looks pretty good.

    NoLanguage · 17/05/2017 at 23:18

    Bought him in last week thankfully and he looked superb. I'd say jump on he ain't getting any cheaper!

    Carl · 18/05/2017 at 02:09

    I want to see him against a good side. He's beaten up on some pretty ave teams so far. Saints at etihad will be a test. I'm happy to pay the extra after his bye if he does well

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 07:37

    I wanted him before he got sick at the start of the season
    Have him now, looks good but can he still play well against Adelaide, GWS etc

    STAR though

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 08:33

    I can't fit another round 11 bye in. I still not sure he will not be rested or his output affected by his illness.

    A genuin midfielder with FWD status is usually gold.

    Krazee-Eyez Killa · 18/05/2017 at 09:34


Ken · 17/05/2017 at 20:14

Who is better downgrad option mcinness or anyone..need to downgrade otten

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:35

    McInnes is probably too risky this week, got any swing options to bring Myers in?

    Other wise Vickers-Willis is still cheapish

    Ryan · 18/05/2017 at 01:37


    Kev · 18/05/2017 at 12:57

    Hibberd Jnr is bloody close to being named. Still 123k

BONT · 17/05/2017 at 20:15

Ablett is annoying me off late…gets heap of the pill but it's useless

    Greg · 17/05/2017 at 20:35

    I'm planning to give him the flick this week. Just can't rely on him to ton up anymore as he's no longer the damaging player he used to be, racking up cheap touches behind the ball. At least now I can swap him for the Bont and even end up with some change afterwards. If you are going to get rid of him then this is the week to do it as he's about to drop a shite load of coin which will then significantly limit your options after round 10.

      JoeD · 17/05/2017 at 20:53

      That's exactly what I'm doing mate. I reckon the Bont will go off against a struggling Cats outfit so swapping Gaz out for him and whacking the VC on him. Sure Gaz may still get the odd huge score against a side who is a little lax in paying him attention but $600K is too much to invest in a guy who is probably going to give you 80s and 90s most weeks. Cash is king this season and that would be a poor allocation of scarce resources from an economics standpoint in my view.

    SF4 · 17/05/2017 at 21:05

    Sideways trading premos is a dangerous move. Those trades will be needed further down the track.

    Hoot · 18/05/2017 at 13:24

    keep him…. he will go 140 plus at some stage from here on.

    Weasel · 18/05/2017 at 19:50

    Must've been his brother who scored 200+ 3 weeks ago.

Jock jnr · 17/05/2017 at 20:16

Love your work Lek

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:35


Tyruddanaut · 17/05/2017 at 20:16

Usually these don't really apply to me but wow I needed this this week

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:35

    Hope it helped mate!

M-J · 17/05/2017 at 20:22

Half colors Lekdog WTF? Do you have splinters??

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:36

    Haha I'm always finding loopholes in these things. I just don't think people need 4 expensive ruckmen after this week

Dnoyes · 17/05/2017 at 20:22

I'd say Hoskin-Elliot is a hold right now. Collingwood's next two games are against an injury ravaged Hawthorn and Brisbane. There are bigger issues to sort out this week.

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:37

    Don't mind it, if you have more pressing issues he's a hold but I still think Hawks will be a tough task for the Pies this week.

Tommo09 · 17/05/2017 at 20:25

Balic and Butler OUT
Myers and Durdin IN


Butler and Otten OUT
Adams and Myers IN

And cop a donut in the fwd line
But have to cop Otten's price decrease

Thoughts community?

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:38

    I like the second option, sure you cop a donut this week but you get a premo and a cheap forward in without losing coin on Otten or Balic

      Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 07:27

      Thanks Lekdog
      Will go with that
      I won't be too far behind the curve because many will have donuts in the fwd line this week

        PerthDave · 19/05/2017 at 00:08

        No Jenkins this week could lead to a bigger score for Otten. I'd go the first option.

    Bock Choy · 19/05/2017 at 08:32

    Josh Jenkins is dropped so maybe Otten will get back to his high scoring ways.

Fearthebeard · 17/05/2017 at 20:26

Someone able to tell me Houston be on phone. Cheers

    INPieman · 17/05/2017 at 21:07

    I'm sorry. Nobody is available to take your call

      Goat · 17/05/2017 at 21:55

      Brett Eddy transferred to Brisbane and playing this week. Is this too much to ask SC Gods?

      FEARTHEBEARD · 18/05/2017 at 09:25



      Houstons b/e???

Dom · 17/05/2017 at 20:29

Only thing Shaun Burgoyne does these days is leave turd stains on the silk sheets. He shouldn't be green, or orange, or even red. A darkish reddish brown seems more appropriate, the colour of my toliet bowl after the mrs whips the Pataks out.

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:38

    We shall see

      Derek · 18/05/2017 at 08:35

      I thought Hodge would have been a better call

        LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 10:20

        He almost made the cut

TOPHAWK1 · 17/05/2017 at 20:37

Nice cheat sheet Lek. We are going to need it after today.

Balic out indefinately for a "personal issue". I am shaking my head in disbelief………WTF!!

The rookies are dropping like flies. The byes are looming and here we are with rooks in our sides like Eddy, Hibberd, Parsons, Hannan, and now Balic. All 5 are likely to miss or be dropped. (I have 4 of those rooks……)

I was planning to not trade this week purely as an act of disclipline to conserve trades. I may still do so.

However, now with Balic's departure it might force my hand. It is now a super fine balance between trade preservation and trading not to fall behind the curve. Behind the curve meaning, not trading enough now so you do not have enough cover (too many donuts) during the byes and thus losing crucial rank and league momentum.

I am not going to trade tonight. Whats the point. The reverse button will be flicked with 100% certainty.

Tomorrow night's team announcements will be massive, and the decisions made thereafter by coaches will make or break their season. GAME ON.


    INPieman · 17/05/2017 at 20:46

    Game on indeed. I have Gary SPP Witts Preuss Eddy Balic & Parsons. And the monumental if not impossible task of avoiding a donut! Haven't even had teams yet! The game is more challenging & I like it

      Rick Grimes · 18/05/2017 at 03:55

      Good call INP. It's bloody tough out there but it's better than everyone cruising with the same team. Gonna take some ballsy and creative trading to get up the leaderboard.

    Tyruddanaut · 17/05/2017 at 21:26

    I have too many non-playing rookies and not enough discipline to remove them. I think come bye rounds that will be my third trade but until then if any forwards are dropped I'm over

      LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:41

      even with all my planning there is no way I field a team this week thanks to assuming rookies would play more than 3 games each

Leeds17 · 17/05/2017 at 20:49

Was hoping Michael Walters might've made a Cheat Sheet appearance

    lok · 17/05/2017 at 21:53

    yeah he wouldve been in the red zone..

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:41

    He was considered but two good games for the year are not enough

    Rick Grimes · 18/05/2017 at 03:58

    I'm considering. With cash generation so tricky, we have to.look at a few speculative mid price trades. Could wait all season to get a MacRae type in there.

      Leeds17 · 18/05/2017 at 06:11

      I can't believe I'm thinking about it but you'd think he'll stay in the midfield till Hill gets back after there's a good chance you bring him in now he averages 80+ & you trade him out for Tom Lynch in R13 for a profit. It's not something I'd really consider usually but I've got to get Hannan off field & cash gen is just awful.

        Derek · 18/05/2017 at 08:36

        Hill could be back this week!

      Royalty · 19/05/2017 at 10:25

      You are spot on re: picking a few bargains
      I'm eyeing of Ward this week, has so much upside on his scoring output, coniglio out will benefit, Kelly will tire imo as season goes on. Can see Ward closing out season averaging 100, for that to happen he has to go at 106 from now on. $483k is a bargain

LMBB · 17/05/2017 at 21:09

Is it stupid to bring in Heeney if that means ill have 4 premo fwds out with the likes of Hanners, Bont and Doc also out in RD11.

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:42

    Not if you can still field a side of 18

Isaac · 17/05/2017 at 21:12

Here is my team as it stands community
22 trades left and 11k in the bank

Shaw, laird, Howe (Stewart)
Adams, Marchbank, Newman (Hampton)

Dangerfield, Merrett, Fyfe, Neale
Jpk, Treleor, Barrett, Powell-Pepper
(Taranto, Fisher, Pickett)

Grundy, Sandilands (strandica)

McRae, Dalhaus, Nankervis (Eddy)
JJK, Roughead, Hoskin-Elliot (parsons)

What to do next community ?

    Sauce · 18/05/2017 at 17:19

    Roughy to Myers via Taranto and Hoskins Elliot up to Buddy

    Iridium192 · 18/05/2017 at 23:53

    Why don't you try thinking of some trades that will improve your position? Now that would be a great idea instead of using someone elses opinion. It is YOUR team after all.

      Russty_ · 19/05/2017 at 00:31

      This forum is all about people sharing opinions about what will improve their positions. It's only the people that ask for other opinions too much, that I have a problem with.

    Russty_ · 19/05/2017 at 00:27

    I wouldn't trade out Roughy if you've held him this long as he's had 114 and 99 in the last 2 rounds.
    Maybe a double downgrade, or rookie swap for playing players, Pickett for Myers, if he plays, and Eddy for Stewart or McInnes, depending on which one you can afford.

    Or, you could go Hampton to McInnes, and WHE to whoever the hell you want.

    Russty_ · 19/05/2017 at 00:29

    Good team btw Isaac, I'd try to get your midfield to full premo asap.

Osei · 17/05/2017 at 21:13

Hey all, looking for some opinions on ryder? does anyone think he is genuine chance to be a top 8 fwd?

    Fred · 17/05/2017 at 21:18

    Not sure he can be relied on mate. You should have read all the comments from his owners over the first month of the season. He's having a purple patch right now but I'm in little doubt that will be short lived and he will be back to frustrating the bejesus out of his owners again.

      Derek · 18/05/2017 at 08:39

      I'll be getting him next week.

      His early season form should be forgiven. The last few weeks are not a purple patch, that is what he will do. Taken him a few weeks to get going, but he is a top 8 forward.

        whatyasmokin · 18/05/2017 at 11:22

        I agree, he's basically a lone wolf ruck and has skills.

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:42

    Not sure he's a long term keeper but could just carry you through the major byes before flicking hin

bob the builder · 17/05/2017 at 21:13

Is it stupid to consider bringing in Toby Greene this round?
Averaging 100 and can't doubt his talent.
Other options are Heeney who is similar price or Macrae who i feel is a tad overpriced.
Bye structure is not an issue

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:43

    All are good options, Greene has the best bye I think

L G · 17/05/2017 at 21:15

Thoughts on Otten -> McNiece

    bob the builder · 17/05/2017 at 22:00

    if McNiece isn't named, no

    Luke · 18/05/2017 at 21:52

    Hold often. Jenkins is out

      Luke · 18/05/2017 at 21:53


        Luke · 18/05/2017 at 21:54

        Bloody heck… Otten

SF4 · 17/05/2017 at 21:16

Whats the chance of Parsons getting dropped this week?
If so I may have to go early on James Stewart or bring in Durdin. Both would be terrible moves but i want to avoid copping a donut this week.

    Valens_FC · 17/05/2017 at 23:28

    Very high chance. He has been totally lost the last two weeks. Well out of his depth.

    NoLanguage · 18/05/2017 at 18:37

    Named on field

Adam · 17/05/2017 at 21:19

Anyone out there think that Pederson can keep his current average? Opinions??

    Tyruddanaut · 17/05/2017 at 21:27

    He only will until Spencer/Gawn comes back and he changes role. So maybe 3 weeks

      Goat · 17/05/2017 at 22:13


    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:43

    Short term yes, long term no. Wouldn't bother getting him in

      Daniel Z · 19/05/2017 at 01:50

      I got him in last week. It was a bit speculative but my forward line was a pile of hot garbage and couldn't afford the big names.
      Plan is for it to get me through the byes and if he's dropping off, I'll upgrade him at that point.

    pod · 19/05/2017 at 06:35

    I think he's playing career best but once the big fella returns, he'll be back to old form.

gameofsloanes · 17/05/2017 at 21:23

Hey Lek was gunna bring in Ryder for Sandi after his bye but you have him as hold. Is Ryder a worthy R2? Port are playing well or is his year off to risky later in the season?

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:44

    Too risky later, don't bring him in, hold if you have him. Will be the same price(ish) as martin, Goldy etc. after Fremantle bye

Jack · 17/05/2017 at 21:26

Oliver Wines! Thoughts on him as very friendly bye
What do you see him averaging
He ticks a few boxes
Contested possessions
Kicks goals
In a decent side

Thoughts please

    Just Jeff · 17/05/2017 at 22:12

    He's always teased us and shown us glimpse of his SC beastliness. The problem is that he can never quite get it together for entire seasons. Mad Mick started him last season thinking that would be his year of ultra premodom but he was pulling his hair out midseason over him and all his clangers that kill his scoring at times. So far again he has disappointed coaches who started him this season so I would probably look elsewhere myself.

      Moustachio · 18/05/2017 at 08:23

      What do you mean "always" and "never"… He's 22 ffs! Has not reached his potential yet, if people expected him to at 21 yo or less then they were not playing the odds (23-24 most common breakout…)

        Tibor · 18/05/2017 at 09:08

        He's been going for 4 or 5 years now, he's not a kid by any means and he was built like Conan from day one. He is the VC of the football club.

        To give it some perspective, Clayton Oliver has now played 21 games…….

          Steeeve · 18/05/2017 at 09:39

          It's unfair to compare anyone with Oliver. A special kind of beast.

    Swans2012 · 17/05/2017 at 22:20

    Consider as a cheap bye friendly m8/9, certainly not top 10 or even 15 though

Winter · 17/05/2017 at 21:29

Was originally trading SPP but now tryna hold him through the byes which seems logical to me so now I'm in a bit of a conundrum

First trade is Otten to Myers via Adams which seems like an obvious one and second trade was SPP to Stef Mart via Balic and Nank which brought WHE to my F6 moving Parsons to the bench

If I trade WHE to Stef instead of SPP, Parsons will be F6

Opinions? Because I'd much rather have Barrett or Myers on the field then someone like Parsons


    Goat · 17/05/2017 at 22:17

    Be cautious about Paraons on field. Scott may be writing his termination notice if he does that. Brad is starting to look like the safer Scott right now.

    Goat · 17/05/2017 at 22:26

    Having said that. Because I said that. Parsons will not only be picked tomorrow night bu will do a "Newman". It is fate…

      Matze · 18/05/2017 at 14:20

      But now he won't because you said that?

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 14:30

    I'm holding through byes as well
    Looping with Myers

Nick · 17/05/2017 at 21:55

Want to bring in Heeney and Myers… trade out:
Preuss + SPP or
Balic + WHE or
Preuss + WHE ?

    SCDamien · 17/05/2017 at 22:03

    Balic + WHE

      LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:45


    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 08:42

    Balic has to go

    Just sayin · 18/05/2017 at 13:15

    I'm going parfitt and hannan

DefyingMadness · 17/05/2017 at 22:00

Does the community think Robbie Gray can pump out consistent big scores after his bye, coming home strong and finishing a top 10 midfielder? If yes he could be a great trade in option next week and may finish the season off strongly

    Goat · 17/05/2017 at 22:28

    No. Now a forward.

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:46

    No, I'm hearing he has some issues in his hips. Playing purely forward doesn't look good for supercoach either

      Loop · 18/05/2017 at 04:12

      Everyone will have him as a mid/fwd next year.

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 07:35

    Can go for big scores but not often enough

    Béezneez · 18/05/2017 at 12:00

    Playing injured.

    Just sayin · 18/05/2017 at 13:18

    Groin issue
    Maybe the dreaded OP.
    Hence playing fwds not mid.
    May even get 2-3 weeks off after bye to deal with it.
    Wouldn't be surprised if not named next week

lok · 17/05/2017 at 22:01

So who's more important to hold? WHE or SPP?
I'm leaning on SPP, so maybe I'll trade WHE to Heeney.

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:46

    SPP imo

Stanks21 · 17/05/2017 at 22:03

Laird, Adams, Roberton,
Tuohy, Shaw, Hibberd
(VW, Stewart)

Oliver, Yeo, Pendlebury
Zorko, Kennedy, Fyfe,Barrett, Myers
(PP, Fisher, Hibberd)

Martin, McEvoy

Dalhaus, Franklin, Greene
Steele, Nankervis, Hayward
(Parsons, Eddy)

What do people think??
I traded down balic to myers, then traded Taranto swung Nankervis forward and looked at a ruckman and chose McEvoy who has been tearing it up.

Worth the trade??
Should I reverse and do something different??

Got 16 trades left and 10,400 left in the bank, will be looking to downgrade PP and stewart in next few weeks to get some cash to get a premo MID.

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 08:45

    You will be the only person I have seen with Big Boy. I have him in my draft team when Max went down, he has won me many games. Not sure I'd get him in classic

      Stanks21 · 18/05/2017 at 09:00

      Who would be better to get though…

        Derek · 18/05/2017 at 09:50

        Grundy is cheap

        Jacobs is good

        Who do you have now?

          Stanks21 · 18/05/2017 at 11:41

          Is grundy really worth it? His form has been horrible..
          I have Martin atm and Nankervis forward.

    Top Gun · 18/05/2017 at 19:12

    Can you swing Nankervis to the ruck with Martin and then trade in a fwd eg Heeney?

SCDamien · 17/05/2017 at 22:03

Otten & Hannan to Myers & Durdin
Otten & Balic to Myers & Durdin
Otten to Myers

Hannan's BE scares me, but if Parsons get dropped then he could save me from copping a donut.

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:47

    Wait til teams, if Hannan saves the donut hold

PlottingPlodder · 17/05/2017 at 22:04

T.Stewart -> Myers (via dpp)
Balic -> J. Stewart
Stewart is a week early but at least I can the loophole his score and parsons. Looks like he fills a big need for the dons.

Is this too risky? Should I suck it up and go wth durdin?

    SCDamien · 17/05/2017 at 22:09

    Hold T.Stewart. His BE is 33 which he should beat fairly comfortably. I'd look to trade him closer to Geelong's bye.

      Goat · 17/05/2017 at 22:34

      Agree with Damien. Can you do 1 trade Balic To J S?

Ray · 17/05/2017 at 22:27

20 Trades – 125k
Shaw, Tuohy, Otten, Newmann, Marchbank, Berry (Hampton, Hibberd)
Adams, Danger, Pendles, Fyfe, JPK, Taranto, Merrett, Pepper, (Beams, Barrett, Balik)
Martin, Sandi (Strnadica)
Nank, Buddy, Roughy, Dahl, Macrae, Butler (Eddy, Parsons)
Thoughts on Hampton Myers via Adams
Butler to Kennedy (WC FWD), Green or Yeo
Not sure what will help with Byes.

Stav · 17/05/2017 at 23:02

Hey community, who do you guys think are the best 5 mids under 580k?
In need of any help, all appreciated!

    Moustachio · 18/05/2017 at 08:26

    Get JPK

      Morphin Time · 18/05/2017 at 16:22

      Zach Merrett
      Josh Kelly
      Scott Pendlebury
      P. Dangerfield

      Just 5 off the top of my head, there are more..

    pod · 18/05/2017 at 16:31

    Danger or Zerrett

NoLanguage · 17/05/2017 at 23:06

James Stewart from the Bombers. Looked good on Saturday.

Essendon fans – JS? Yay or nay?

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:47

    Wait another week, Essendon have been pumping their talks in and out of the side all year

Finnius123 · 17/05/2017 at 23:18

Thoughts on matters prodding lekdog? Looks a shoe in for a 108+ average, is super consistent, and has that amazing Rd 12 bye.

    Finnius123 · 17/05/2017 at 23:19

    Matt priddis*** in regards to my comment above

    LEKD0G · 18/05/2017 at 00:48

    Almost made the sheet, hoping he just misses his b/e so I can bring him in

    Moustachio · 18/05/2017 at 08:27

    I'm pretty sure Father Time is one of the angrier SC Gods

Choice · 18/05/2017 at 06:40

Don't know whether to hold Balic or not, mid/fwd swing is handy for the moment. Hopefully it's no longer than a month.
Not sure if I'll bother with myers. There seems to be similar mids coming up.
Hampton down to McNiece, PP up to JPK?

    neil Demons Delight · 18/05/2017 at 08:32

    reckon it might be a lot longer maybe never to be seen over there damm lying u do it all the time

Paul · 18/05/2017 at 06:49

Thoughts please.
Otten to lloyd
otten is hurley
Both can work with the bye rounds. Have no idea who is the best option. Will the return of rampe have any impact on Lloyds scores? I have very little knowledge of essenon and hurleys role. Please help.

    Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 08:17


    neil Demons Delight · 18/05/2017 at 08:30

    either are good choices both are or will be in my team soon

    Top Gun · 18/05/2017 at 19:12

    Hurley great choice.

Jono · 18/05/2017 at 07:00

Steele, D Smith, Higgins, Petracca or J Riewoldt…need a value pick fwd around $450k

    Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 08:16

    Steele or Petracca, Leaning towards Steele

    neil Demons Delight · 18/05/2017 at 08:29


    Tibor · 18/05/2017 at 09:12

    Steele smith and petracca sound ok Jack Riewoldt can play but the " no tools" rule should keep him out.

    As for Higgins, have you lost your mind? When will people learn…

    B-rian · 18/05/2017 at 10:21

    None. Better off saving your trade until you can get someone better
    If you are really desperate maybe try walters. At least he might make you some coin

    FCAbel · 18/05/2017 at 15:51

    Might as well have a punt on Hampton. Higgins is very bye friendly.

Biscuits · 18/05/2017 at 07:25

SPP to Myers
Otten to Adams.
1 or 2?

    Biscuits · 18/05/2017 at 07:33

    Sorry it's only one option but I'd like thoughts on it.

    neil Demons Delight · 18/05/2017 at 08:28

    spp invaluable next few weeks

    Moustachio · 18/05/2017 at 08:30

    Won't catch up paying top dollar for premos. Pick off a fallen one.

Billy · 18/05/2017 at 07:26

Thoughts on toby green please?

    Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 08:13

    Great scorer, you'd hope he stays out of trouble though

    Moustachio · 18/05/2017 at 08:28

    Highly rated flog campaigner

    Captain Awesome · 18/05/2017 at 09:05

    Would love to punch him repeatedly

      Tibor · 18/05/2017 at 09:14

      Give him one for me too skipper and get a couple of kicks in too if the opportunity is there.

        Captain Awesome · 18/05/2017 at 09:26

        It'll be my pleasure

    Borko · 18/05/2017 at 14:26

    strongly considering due to bye and ceiling … but wary of flog factor

      Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 14:35

      Scores well and hopefully Leon Cameron gets stuck into him to stop him from getting suspended again

    Neville · 18/05/2017 at 15:39

    Couldn't meet a nicer flog!

    pod · 18/05/2017 at 16:33

    Not much

    Hoot · 18/05/2017 at 20:09

    Small man syndrome.
    Needs a good punch to the head.
    Can play.

neil Demons Delight · 18/05/2017 at 08:36

I have or had 2 lynchs stewarts Lloyds hibberds but only one pickett

    neil Demons Delight · 18/05/2017 at 08:37

    started with 2 kellys too

Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 08:53

SPP to Myers
Otten to Adams
Otten to Myers
Stewart to Rance
If I do Otten to Myers will have to swing Hibberd back and have no playing back rookies.
If option 2 is the way to go should I go early on a McInnes instead of going Myers?

    neil Demons Delight · 18/05/2017 at 09:08

    spp will be very usefull and going ok CHOOSING rance or adams is more difficult both are good maybe rance

    jez_m · 18/05/2017 at 14:40

    Gotta get Adams if you don't have him yet.

Dave · 18/05/2017 at 09:04

Hi all,
What do you all think of cripps going forward here and there, reminds of a role similar to what bontempelli does. Will this increase his scoring output?

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 09:45

    Going forward instead of resting is what a lot of the bigger midfielders can do. Saves using interchanges. I think it is good, still out there scoring points

Izzy · 18/05/2017 at 09:13

Oliver, Priddis, Selwood, Cripps or Murphy??

    LoganJosh7 · 18/05/2017 at 10:03

    selwood cheaps as chips next week. great bye round too – thats my plan!!__cripps on the up also

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS · 18/05/2017 at 09:24

One of the frustrating things is that these rookies as in Hannan, Parson, Pickett even Fisher are pretty much maxed out price wise and so we now have to spend $250-300k to upgrade them to a premium player. The lack of rookies going up around that 300k area is making it tough but it's gonna sort out the contenders from the pretenders I guess.

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 09:42

    One good score, just one is all they need.

      KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS · 18/05/2017 at 10:08

      Unfortunately Hannan and Parson had their big scores first game, sucked us in then delivered turds ever since. As for the others we'll I won't hold my breath waiting for that big score haha. Certainly makes it more interesting and definitely more planning required this year!

    neil Demons Delight · 18/05/2017 at 10:15

    agree k. that's where the skill and player research comes into play New rookies that are any good will be sparse unlike last year where they were replaced in waves such as papley. This year is different and when they pop up grab them..My research says stewart from the bombers will be one It becomes a must to grab these even at the expense of paying more for your chosen prem/.The skill is to let your Hannans and Fishers slide

Dice · 18/05/2017 at 09:34

Can someone please tell me if Walters $383K & B/E of negative 30, scores 100 points this week.
What price would he be next week, roughly?

Want to get him in but Balic being out has stuffed me right up

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 09:41

    hill might be back this week, definitely next. Walters points will suffer

      Dice · 18/05/2017 at 10:35

      good point there Derek.
      i just think if he stays in midfield he will definitely dominate.
      avg 128 over last 2 weeks from majority of midfield time. he's got talent this boy. bloody ross you just can't trust

    Baggy Pants · 18/05/2017 at 10:04

    Approx $440k

      Dice · 18/05/2017 at 10:35

      cheers Bags

    Just sayin · 18/05/2017 at 13:13

      Dice · 19/05/2017 at 10:18

      Forgot about that site, that's a rippa

Steeeve · 18/05/2017 at 09:40

With Balic out I'm trading him up to JJK.

Only problem is I need TWO of Hannan, Parsons, Butler and Eddy to play this week. Already copping a donut with Witts, might be two. What a stinker of a year.

    gator59 · 18/05/2017 at 10:23

    You can count Eddy out too

    James · 18/05/2017 at 10:45

    Decent chance NONE of them play this week so brace for team sheets tonight Steeeve!

    Choppers · 18/05/2017 at 10:50

    looks like you need Hannan and Parsons to play then, Steeeve cause Butler and Eddy aren't. Good luck.

      Steeeve · 18/05/2017 at 11:32

      Butler confirmed out? Injury or just because he's been terrible?

        Dogs · 18/05/2017 at 11:33


    bigbadbrad · 18/05/2017 at 10:55

    Saving grace is that most of these fools were only giving you 20s and 30s most weeks anyway so it's not such a massive point loss if they don't play.

Derek · 18/05/2017 at 09:45

If they play they stay

Derek · 18/05/2017 at 09:54

Sensational work yet again Lek.

The photo of you and your girl is still one of the top highlights of this season

    Nutsack · 18/05/2017 at 10:46

    Didn't realise Lekdog had a daughter, at least one he was willing to declare??

Curious George · 18/05/2017 at 10:03

Most people worried about Rd 11 bye.
Looking ahead Rd 13 could be the big one.
Rookies coming up/in all Rd 13
Myers, s-berg, Perryman, Ryan etc.
Myers may be OK to trade out by then but the rest you would have probably just bought in.
Couple that with your fyfe, sandi, pendles, adams etc could be carnage.
Also if planning to keep SPP till after the byes you will need to trade out before hand rd 12 probably to get enough cash to being in a premo once they have had their bye.

    Travo · 18/05/2017 at 10:31

    Yes Curious George, I have been keeping an eye on this.
    Rd13 is going to be the big one due to many high ownership premo and upcoming rookie byes that round.
    SPP is a lock for me until bye round are all finished up. I am even hesitant to move on Stewart, Parsons, Black and Butler due to their Rd12 byes.
    Be prepared for donuts.

neil Demons Delight · 18/05/2017 at 10:05

maybe in a few weeks our rookie problems will be solved. Also ran no hopers like Collingwood will surely dump players who wont be there next year such as Jessie White and Mayne though he has a contract and promote Kirby daics Mitch McCarthy all three are exciting and will be there longer or will they recruit another mayne the new coach wont

    INPieman · 18/05/2017 at 10:46

    Callum Brown is right in the mix to line up this weekend. He's a bull just like his old man. 177k Mid/Fwd DPP. Hello sir

      neil Demons Delight · 18/05/2017 at 11:03

      had him in my original team new coach will love him

b_sh3p · 18/05/2017 at 10:05

Zerrett JPK or Danger?

    H Lee · 18/05/2017 at 10:26

    do yourself a favour and go danger

    pod · 18/05/2017 at 10:41

    Danger then Zerrett

      b_sh3p · 18/05/2017 at 10:51

      thanks H Lee an pod!

Paul · 18/05/2017 at 10:17

Looks like I have to abandon my plan to bring JPK in this week now that Butler is out.

Butler to N Riewoldt or Heeney?

    Austin · 18/05/2017 at 10:47


    jez_m · 18/05/2017 at 14:44

    As long as he doesn't mess with your bye structure, Heeney.

Jim_bob321 · 18/05/2017 at 10:23

What do u guys think….
If Bont doesn't score well this week, loophole with DAYNE ZORKO? – Only good midfield lining up if Beams isn't playing
Thoughts please

    jez_m · 18/05/2017 at 14:45

    Not a bad left-field option. But they are playing the Crows this week who should destroy Brisbane.

H Lee · 18/05/2017 at 10:26

going to downgrade butler now hes injured? who is best downgrade out of mcinnes, durdin or J.stewart?

    Curious George · 18/05/2017 at 10:40

    If u have balic/parfitt etc in the mids
    DPP for Myers
    Next week bring in Mcinnes/Stewart when they r on the bubble for balic/parfitt etc.

      Alistair · 18/05/2017 at 10:51

      Could be a good chance he takes a donut with that strategy.

    Karl · 18/05/2017 at 10:49

    Wouldn't touch McInnes with Petrie just around the corner. Petrie might play WAFL this week but you'd hate for McInnes to be stranded on two games next week and have another dead body heading into the byes. Stewart is perhaps the best prospect but again you'll be taking extra risk bringing him in this week.

      Derek · 18/05/2017 at 11:41


        Geoff · 18/05/2017 at 11:47

        Maybe but hard to have any confidence in GWS rookies even with all their injuries. One guy I'd definitely wait for him to appear on the bubble although I know you like your DPPs though Derek. 🙂

          Just sayin · 18/05/2017 at 13:11

          With COGS out Perryman will get a good run at it.

            Westy · 18/05/2017 at 20:01

            Don't pay the Perryman.

              Pman · 18/05/2017 at 21:56

              Don't even fix a price…

    FCAbel · 18/05/2017 at 15:55

    Have to go Durden as he's on the bubble. Like the others if they make the bubble. Would consider Lloyd after one game if in need and have dpp.

Nervous Nelly · 18/05/2017 at 10:47

FFS my forward line is screwed already and we haven't even got to team sheets yet!

Winter · 18/05/2017 at 10:53

Wanting to bring in Stef Martin this week

If I trade SPP to him WHE becomes my F6, Parsons goes to the bench and Myers and Barrett take M7 and M8

Where as if I trade WHE to him Parsons stays at F6 and 2 of SPP, Myers and Barrett take M7 and M8

This wouldn't be a problem if I wasn't bloody 14k off going Balic to Stef

Krazee-Eyez Killa · 18/05/2017 at 10:55

The plan so far is to go from Rocky(regrettably) down to Dangerfield, and Balic down to Myers via dpp.

Leaves me with 19 trades and 204k in the bank. Marchbank, SPP and others will hopefully soon become other premos. Taking the advice on board about keeping SPP through until the end of the bye periods. good idea

    INPieman · 18/05/2017 at 11:40

    Rocky downgrade to Danger. That's the silver lining & a half

      Krazee-Eyez Killa · 18/05/2017 at 11:55

      the idea of anybody being 'downgraded' to Danger is just ludicrous

    b_sh3p · 18/05/2017 at 15:41

    Nearly same as me.

    Have gone Rocky/GHS to Danger/Myers.

    Similarly aim to trade the likes of Marchbank, Otten, SPP and Stewart to Zerrett/Doch in the coming weeks. Just need some good rookies to pop up. Fingers crossed.

INPieman · 18/05/2017 at 10:57

We need an honour role for the deceased Fwd rookies:


On Life Support:


Feel free to add your rubbish to the list

    Eric · 18/05/2017 at 11:02

    My pile of shame also includes Smith, Simpkin, Preuss and Mountford.

      Nutsack · 18/05/2017 at 11:11

      Gee Brad Scott has reamed you big time buddy! It must be hard to sit down?!

        INPieman · 18/05/2017 at 11:14

        I started with Hibbo Jnr Mountford & then added Preuss. Brad Scott is a nemeses. I wouldn't bring Durdin in even if he was free

          Russty_ · 18/05/2017 at 23:59

          I still have Hibbo Jnr, he has come in handy hahah

      b_sh3p · 18/05/2017 at 15:46

      HAHA, yeh North has hardly been playing the number of rookies everyone expected. I never thought Simpkin would do much as a small fwd though in terms of numbers.

      Preuss and Mountford both unlucky. Harder for Mountford now with Swallow looking like he's coming back + Ben Jacobs on the mend.

      Really thought Preuss would have come in as a target with Waite out last week. I'm still holding Preuss, no rookie rucks popping up and don't want to waste a trade yet to go Preuss>Ruckamn that doesn't get a game>other rookie Ruckman.

    Just sayin · 18/05/2017 at 11:16

Thoughts on Balic to Goldstein

Will he be a top 2 ruckman by seasons end?

    Ja191 · 18/05/2017 at 11:24

    I could tell you no or yes but that would mean nothing. It's a risk.. could be or could do nothing 😉

    Mark · 18/05/2017 at 11:27

    Would avoid Goldy. Still has an air of fragility about him and Preuss could come in at any second to totally screw you over. I'd find the extra $$$ to get to Martin instead.

    pod · 18/05/2017 at 11:44

    Goldy a bargain, looks like a good trade.

    SCathiest · 18/05/2017 at 12:56

    I swung Nank back to the forward line for Butler, and got Goldy for a bargain.

    Hoot · 18/05/2017 at 13:28

    I'm not confident with Goldy… Ill be dropping Witts to prevent a donut and am looking towards Martin/Jaccobs as the best 2 options.

Thomas · 18/05/2017 at 11:06

Did the Parfitt to myers and Butler to Mutimer trades. Have realised that doing this means i have to play Hannan onfield. I could gamble and bring in Mciness instead of Mutimer, which means don't have to play Hannan but JS could be in issue. I don't have enough to upgrade butler to a premo.
Thoughts community?

SCmadness · 18/05/2017 at 11:10

Carnage in my forward line this week!
I can save my skin but it means trading in Burton as a forward with the plan to cull otten next week, and swing Burton into D6.
Problem is I haven't seen much of him and this goes against all my rules!
What do you think o wise community?

    Choice · 18/05/2017 at 12:48

    Dusty & Butler may have been playing a game of reach around that went wrong

      Wedge · 18/05/2017 at 11:30

      Wouldn't be the first time someone has done the sneaky with a butler

    Nutsack · 18/05/2017 at 11:31

    Well that's what you get for trying to pull each other off!

Harley · 18/05/2017 at 11:27

Hold or trade Rockliff. What's everyone's thoughts?

I don't want to trade but feel I have to if I want to avoid donuts and points. And not keen on the rookie selections ATM. Already have Myers. Ranked in top 2000 what would you do?

    Nathan · 18/05/2017 at 11:36

    I'm moving him on. Too much uncertainty about when he will return and a massive chance that shoulder will pop out again now that the socket is weakened. Why does the bastard have to be so injury prone as he's a fantasy beast?! 🙁

    Ja191 · 18/05/2017 at 11:38

    I'd give you advice but your doing way better than me right now. Go with your gut. I'd hold him if you have cover.. will storm home

    INPieman · 18/05/2017 at 12:46

    I'd trade him

    whatyasmokin · 18/05/2017 at 14:24

    In top 2000 then trade I reckon.

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 14:35

    Storms home late in seasons

Dogs · 18/05/2017 at 11:32

I was trading him out anyway, but was going to use otten downgrade to turn butler into a premo. Going to have to double downgrade in the forwards now as I may be facing 2 donuts with balic and butler out , with no bank to upgrade.

Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 11:32

Adams or Docherty?
Will probably end up with both but one now and the other after byes

    Connor · 18/05/2017 at 11:38

    Get Adams for value unless Doch suits your bye structure better. Some coaches are targeting Doch after he has his bye including me assuming I can ever find the cash!

James · 18/05/2017 at 11:35

Is treloar still a hold because he's most likely going to fall below $500k with his 160+ break even and I don't wanna lose that much cash on him

    Barring any last minute disasters Treloar will play this week

    Swans2012 · 18/05/2017 at 11:43


    Travo · 18/05/2017 at 11:55

    Treloar will play and go big this week.

    whatyasmokin · 18/05/2017 at 14:23

    If you were going to trade him should've been last week. Hold.

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 14:37

    He will go large due to people trading him out last week

Derek · 18/05/2017 at 11:39

this is where those DEF/FWD swingers from last year were really useful.

Parsons or Pickett need to play for me to avoid a donut….. oh my!

    Geoff · 18/05/2017 at 11:42

    If you happen to be a coach that doesn't have at least one donut this week then the fantasy gods truly love you.

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 11:52

    maybe Ben Long will get a game.

    Noirlust · 18/05/2017 at 20:36


    I need to know more about this kid

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 20:53

    Parsons named…how???

Derek · 18/05/2017 at 11:42

how long for?

    hedski · 18/05/2017 at 12:51

    Hardwick says a week….

Doc · 18/05/2017 at 11:48

What are people's thoughts?

Should we be holding often/whe for warm bodies on ground and avoiding donuts v cashing in before they lose value.

Copping the donut (and trading before value loss) probably represents a better chance to get closer to full premo by seasons end.

    jez_m · 18/05/2017 at 14:49

    Probably depends if you're going for overall rank or league wins, Doc. If you're going for overall rank I would say hold them, if you're going for league wins you can probably afford to cop a doughnut.

Big Kev · 18/05/2017 at 11:54

What are you clowns still doing with Butler anyway? He should've been cash out weeks ago.

    hedski · 18/05/2017 at 14:11

    Had bigger fish to fry BK.

    jez_m · 18/05/2017 at 14:44

    You must be going alright if you haven't had bigger problems than Butler in recent weeks…

Dogs · 18/05/2017 at 11:55

hoping Hannam doesn't get dropped. Potentially facing 2 donuts in the forward line. Original plan was to turn butler into jjk by downgrading otten, and having balic as my last on field forward rookie. That changed to turning balic into jjk and keeping butler for another week. Now I could be looking at having to double down grade balic and butler to field a team, or continue with original plan and just cop a donut

Doc · 18/05/2017 at 11:57

Laird, Adams, Shaw, Hibberd (Snr), marchbank, Newman (often, Stewart)

Danger, hanners, McRae, (Ablett), titch, Fyfe, Steveb,
(P-P) fisher Barret (Balic)

Sandiwitts (Preuss)

Dahl, Yeo, Kennedy, Nank, Butler, WHE (parsons,

Any suggestions on upgrades?
Was thinking: butler to Myers (via DPP Macrae) and potentially hannan (via DPP Balic and DPP Adams) or Otten to McInnes in defence.

Loathe to go McInnes early though.

    Doc · 18/05/2017 at 11:59

    Hannan is other forward bench.
    Resigned to copping a donut for witts if preuss isn't picked.

      INPieman · 18/05/2017 at 13:06

      Also resigned to the Witts donut. Trying to cover others. Don't go early on McInnes. Petrie is coming back & Lycett a few weeks away

John · 18/05/2017 at 12:03

Thoughts on Pederson? As a forward he seems to be doing OK.

    jez_m · 18/05/2017 at 14:50

    Probably not cheap enough to validate picking him up at this point.

Duckky · 18/05/2017 at 12:05

Is Newman worth bringing in? Great average at this price. Or are there Job security issues?

    Chompers · 18/05/2017 at 13:32

    is he a certainty to get named?!

      Wedge · 18/05/2017 at 13:37

      Rampe back in the mix now

      whatyasmokin · 18/05/2017 at 14:22


    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 14:27

    JS is shaky

    jez_m · 18/05/2017 at 14:50

    Unfortunately Longmire doesn't look at SC scores, so he could be dropped again soon.

CoachFanatic · 18/05/2017 at 12:08

Need Help. My team is as follows:

Docherty Laird Lloyd (Hampton)
Otten Newman Stewart (Melican)
Bont C.Oliver Dangerfield Yeo T.Adams J.Kelly N.Fyfe J.Barret (Z.Fisher, Pickett, Miles)
Sandilands Grundy (strindica)
Macrae, Dahlhaus, L.Franklin (Balic)
T.Nankervis, Daniher, Taranto (eddy)

Any thoughts on possible trades I could make?

    Imgonnalose · 18/05/2017 at 12:22

    Your team looks good as – I would Chuck yeo in the forward line, and trade balic for Myers, then Taranto for a jjk or something

    jez_m · 18/05/2017 at 14:52

    Balic out for Myers (via Yeo DPP) and Taranto out for either Heeney or JJK depending on how your team is looking ahead of the byes.

    Noirlust · 18/05/2017 at 20:35

    Out Hampton and Taranto/Balic,
    DPP Adams and Yeo
    In Myers and JPK

Alex · 18/05/2017 at 12:11

Hannan confirmed OUT! Although hardly a surprise that he would be dropped after doing bugger all last weekend.

    INPieman · 18/05/2017 at 12:45

    Life support turned off. Now we are down to Parsons. And with Scooter & Hendersen coming back he could have his plug pulled

      Fantasy Gods · 18/05/2017 at 13:02

      Anyway who went early on O'Connor is likely to get a lesson from us on why you don't go early on rookies with dodgy JS.

        Fantasy Gods · 18/05/2017 at 13:04

        Anyone who went early.

          Bailey · 18/05/2017 at 13:07

          One of my mates went Newman to O'Connor last week as he was busting to make an upgrade elsewhere in his side. Suffice to say I haven' heard from him in over a week.

Imgonnalose · 18/05/2017 at 12:19

Hey guys should I go Heeney or Greene? Worried about Heeney slowing down after his sickness but Greene is a bit of a yo-yo, thoughts?

    Ja191 · 18/05/2017 at 12:25

    Henney all day imo. + the fact that greene is a complete flog

    NoLanguage · 18/05/2017 at 18:43


Alex · 18/05/2017 at 12:38

My Team:
Laird, Lloyd, Shaw, Marchbank, Otten, Newman (Stewart, Berry)

Danger, Fyfe, Kennedy, Bont, Sloane, Oliver, Pendles, SPP (Barrett, Fisher, Hibberd)

Sandi, Grundy (Strnadica)

Greene, Nank, Steele, Dahl, Buddy, Butler (Parsons, Balic)

Trading out Otten and either SPP or Balic.
Originally planned for Otten and SPP out for Myers and Rance, however with the Balic news, I'm looking at Otten for Myers (DPP Hibberd) and then Balic for a <500K forward but none are jumping out! Or punt SPP and pick up Myers and Dusty/Rance?

Captain Risky · 18/05/2017 at 12:48


Nervous and subdued sitting here, waiting for the unknown.
Been copping a hiding from the enemy. Carnage everywhere.
Injuries, suspensions, late inclusions, under performing premos and the new super weapon, the 'Spud' rookie are taking there toll.
Getting attacked from all sides, the enemy, lead by the new terrorists- The Scott Brothers, supported by the experienced 'Ross the Boss' and Horse are winning.
To top it off, somebody rediscovered the 'Tag'. Mercifully, red vests have been outlawed.

Money is getting really tight, ammunition is running low, the premos are misfiring and the tried and true strategy of guns N rookies has failed.
Just 9 weeks into the 2017 campaign, things are looking dire.
This week could be the end of me.. the light at the end of the tunnel is dim. All the best folks.

    Mystic Mac · 18/05/2017 at 13:00

    May the force be with you Captain

    INPieman · 18/05/2017 at 13:01

    Before you do that pull your balls out & make some risky picks & have some fun. Then when they stuff up pull the pin then!

    SCathiest · 18/05/2017 at 13:05

    You may as well go out fighting Captain, you could take out some of the enemy in your last breaths.
    Don't give up till your out of trades

    whatyasmokin · 18/05/2017 at 14:21

    It's now or never, trade in Walters.

LoganJosh7 · 18/05/2017 at 12:51

trade out butler or balic or both? balic looks like hes out long term and butler might not rise any further… really wanted to only use one trade max this week.

    Imgonnalose · 18/05/2017 at 12:56

    I think Butler is injured bro

      LoganJosh7 · 18/05/2017 at 13:04

      ya a minor injury…

FizzEm · 18/05/2017 at 12:59

Any word on rockliffs status?? I have beams and hoping rocky is out for a couple so brisbane will bring beams back before there bye.

    LoganJosh7 · 18/05/2017 at 13:04

    still 2-3 weeks i think

    Wedge · 18/05/2017 at 13:45

    They won't risk bringing beams back if he's not ready.

Hoot · 18/05/2017 at 12:59

Ok… so i have only just figured out how to use this 'wordpress' login thing. Anyone want to share as to how they got a cool pic up there adjacent to their name?

    all good now

    go blues

Crow · 18/05/2017 at 13:09

I think im in the most difficult situation here guys
Got 30k in the bank
Def Laird, Shaw, Marchbank, Otten, Newman, Berry (Stewart, Williamson)
Mid : Rockliff, Bont, Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Ablett, Fyfe, Cripps, Taranto (Barrett, Parfitt, Fisher)
Rk: Martin, Sandilands (Strnadica)
Fwd : Dahlhaus, Greene, Nankervis, Yeo, Steele, Butler (Parsons, Balic)
21 trades, Defence is weak and ive been trying to upgrade it for the past 3 weeks, but other stuff has gotten in the way. Honestly, i dont want to give up rocky because I know how good he is but is that the only option i have? Because downgrading a balic or Parfitt to myers ain't gonna give me much in return. Any advice would be greatly appreciated,

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 14:31

    you still need to upgrade 6 keepers, but have little cash and not much cash generation.

    Parfitt to Myers will give you a bit of cash, and Myers will generate a bit over the next few weeks.

    Notorious mac · 18/05/2017 at 15:07

    Trade rockliff to adams and then swing adams to defence next upgrade

      Derek · 18/05/2017 at 15:55

      You could also do Rocky to MCRae and swing him forward

      Moves like that could rocket you in rankings. People looking at Donuts in forward line and you have 6 premiums

    Noirlust · 18/05/2017 at 20:27

    Dont trade Rocky. keep him tucked in tight.

    Look for a double trade down and get rid of those no playing rookies. Parfit and Balic i would suggest or Parfit and Butler.
    Butler is past his used by date now, should have cashed him out a couple weeks back.
    Why dont you have SPP?

LoganJosh7 · 18/05/2017 at 13:10

    Have both but like JJK
    Heeney not proven but looks very good

    jez_m · 18/05/2017 at 14:54

    JJK is a handy VC option – has the tendancy to go 150+ on occasion. So on that basis I'd say Kennedy.

      LoganJosh7 · 18/05/2017 at 15:56

      yeah i went with JJK – mostly as a proven performer/top 4 team aaaand great bye round pick.

murray · 18/05/2017 at 13:30

shaw or rance??

    ProTravo · 18/05/2017 at 13:44

    Rance will be good for the byes. I personally wouldn't bring in either.

      murray · 18/05/2017 at 14:03

      any suggestions Pro

        ProTravo · 18/05/2017 at 15:37

        I like Hibberd at his current price. I assume you have Doc, Adams and Laird?

    Wal · 18/05/2017 at 13:49


    pod · 18/05/2017 at 14:04

    Rance easy

      murray · 18/05/2017 at 14:24

      thats one vote for each, split at the moment

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 14:36

    Rance is a bit up and down but can do nothing in some games and still ton up
    Shaw is proven and if he gets his form from last year back he will be top 6 for sure

      murray · 18/05/2017 at 14:44

      thanks Tommo, suppose have both eventually

    lazza · 18/05/2017 at 16:30

    Neither … Roberton or Simmo before either..

Gdub · 18/05/2017 at 13:43

thoughts on hibberd in the backline community?

    ProTravo · 18/05/2017 at 13:54

    I brought him in this week. I'd say the score he got against the Hawks will not be common and that he should average about 100.

      Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 14:33

      Brought him in 2 weeks ago
      Up and down but when he's on he plays well

    NoLanguage · 18/05/2017 at 18:44

    I upgraded Otten to him. Dees have a good run the next month too.

John · 18/05/2017 at 13:51

Billings or Kobe as an upgrade from beams

    whatyasmokin · 18/05/2017 at 14:19

    Wouldn't call either an upgrade.

      Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 14:32

      I agree

    BlueBoy · 18/05/2017 at 14:37

worth going one of Butler/Balic/Parfitt to Durdin or Stewart to avoid a donut this weel? If so which one out and wic one in?

    week* which*

    take the donut and save a trade

savemebarry1 · 18/05/2017 at 14:12

Bont or Danger VC? And also need help on picking which two to trade this week out of

WHE, Balic, Butler and Hampton

    pod · 18/05/2017 at 14:19

    Who do you think will win the game? I reckon the Cats, I'm VC'n Danger or Jelwood, still to decide which yet.

    dave · 18/05/2017 at 14:31

    Leaning towards Bont, but I feel dirty about it because hey, Danger is Danger.. Waiting for him to be fully over that rib problem that seems to be holding him back before giving him C again.. Its almost like "which is your favourite child?" ..awkward..
    trade out Hampton & Balic, the other 2 next week lol

    voiceofreason · 18/05/2017 at 15:53

    much of a muchness…both likely to score there abouts

Imgonnalose · 18/05/2017 at 14:18

Want to upgrade either in the forward or defence this week
Already have simmo, heater, Adams, laird, yeo-yeo, Dahl, macrae and nank

Was looking at Greene or Heeney but others possibly roberton, joey, rance, Williams, jjk or buddy?? Or anyone else,
Please help community

    lazza · 18/05/2017 at 16:47

    When will you upgrade Heater 🙂
    Not in Top 15 defenders whether it's overall average, 3 round average or 5 round average.
    Just loving the number of people hanging on to the past .. doesn't rank in top 10 for any stat this season so far.

      Goat · 19/05/2017 at 00:08

      Just loving people with trades to burn. I'll back him in For top 30 with the odd high score. Not leaving my side any time soon.

dave · 18/05/2017 at 14:28

Any love for Hamish Hartlett (next week) to turn around the slow start to the season,? Or am I insane

    Only get him if you like your life to suck.

    Finnius123 · 18/05/2017 at 16:48

    Wait for a game or two to show a turn in form rather than just hoping for one – good logic though looking for rd 9 bye players to carry you through – would recommend harbrow down back if you are looking for one desperately

      dave · 18/05/2017 at 17:32

      yeh good point, not needed desperately – defence is almost set; logic was turn marchbank (D6) into Hartlett (had his bye) as D6 for rest of year… He's averagred 100 for a season before, DPP, part of a form team, solid skills…….. but……. injuries, inconsistency and no love apparently lol. Harbrow for the win then?

    b_sh3p · 18/05/2017 at 17:03

    I say NO

    dave · 18/05/2017 at 17:16

    lol.. point well and truly taken.

Finnius123 · 18/05/2017 at 14:41

I have bont, danger and selwood in my team for the Friday night loophole, however am considering going something a bit different.

VC Tex Walker against the brisbane lions – I am backing him to do a buddy and go absolutely huge.

This leaves me with the conundrum of picking a Sunday captain – am leaning towards Elliott Yeo at this stage.

You've got to risk it to get the biscuit.

In other news trading witts has allowed me to avoid a doughnut in the forward line and get matt priddis whilst also getting rid of Harley balic – so I am pretty happy.

Double downgrade next week and then bring in harbrow for Marchbank and another couple of downgrades after Rd 10. Then a double upgrade after Rd 10 leaves me with one premo spot left – which I will get for SPP after that Rd 13 bye.

Thoughts community? Would especially love to hear your thoughts on the VC/C option.

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 14:42

    Love the Tex choice
    Nat Fyfe for C???

      Finnius123 · 18/05/2017 at 15:11

      Yeo has had a higher ceiling and been more consistent than Fyfe this year…

        Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 15:19

        Fair enough
        Yeo is risky though

    ProTravo · 18/05/2017 at 15:01

    Trusting YoYo with captaincy is a ballsy move. I like your logic with Tex however..

    Noirlust · 18/05/2017 at 20:18

    Yeo and Otten
    Captain and Vice.

Steeeve · 18/05/2017 at 14:51

Looking at three donuts this week. THREE. If Parsons gets a game by some miracle I'll have two. Preuss getting a game would leave me with one.

    Luke · 18/05/2017 at 15:30

    Yummmm! What flavour are they? I prefer the caramel glazed ones the most!

    Chopsticks · 18/05/2017 at 16:40

    If Parsons gets a game, it's just like having three donuts anyway!

    Pistol · 18/05/2017 at 16:50

    You should see as a nice opportunity to "donate for donuts".

SCNoob · 18/05/2017 at 15:11

J. Lloyd or Hibberd as an upgrade for Otten?

    ProTravo · 18/05/2017 at 15:58

    Both good choices. Hibberd maybe beacuse he will gain value.

    Wal · 18/05/2017 at 16:07

    Lloyd all the way

    lazza · 18/05/2017 at 16:49

    Cant see Hibberd being top 6 … doesn't have a track record …

    Danners · 18/05/2017 at 19:13

    Lloyd for consistency

    SF4 · 18/05/2017 at 19:34


MorrowSC · 18/05/2017 at 15:46

Burton a worth selection as a trade in this week to end up as eventual D7/F7 cover or will he be another burn man for me to add to the list?
Looking at trading out Otten/P-P this week for Hurley/Lloyd. Don't have enough coin to upgrade Balic to a FWD premo so I'll just have to cop a doughnut.

Laird, Hurley, Simpson, Shaw, Marchbank, Stewart (V-W, Hibberd)

Bont, Sloane, Danger, Selwood, Zorko, Fyfe, Treloar, Myers (Barret, Fisher, Lloyd)

Martin, Sandi (Strnadica)

Dahlhaus, Buddy, Lynch, Nank, Higgins, Balic (Parsons, Eddy)


    Captain Risky · 18/05/2017 at 16:40

    Looking at him myself. Seems to be a good kick, great efficiency. Desperate times, desperate measures.

    I'll be putting him fwd this week, then moving to defense next week. Gets me out of a fwd donut pickle with Nank covering Witts this week. Could be a handy swing man later.

INPieman · 18/05/2017 at 16:06

    Who still has Hampton? Should've been cashed out last week before he started leaking cash, if you have any idea what you are doing.

    Kev · 18/05/2017 at 19:06

    You just make stuff up so that you have something to post here. keep quiet unless you have something true to post wanka

      Hoot · 18/05/2017 at 20:16

      Is that you Toby Greene?

        hedski · 18/05/2017 at 20:23

        Not sure if that's the real Kev, seems a bit salty..

          Russty_ · 18/05/2017 at 23:31

          There could be more than one Kev in the world haha, no profile and all, he obviously has no respect for one of the stalwarts of Jock Reynolds.

      Spoolge · 19/05/2017 at 10:25

      Flog this bloke. Reminds me of craig hutchison with his "lack" of knowledge and thinking he's a reporter.

    Beezneez · 18/05/2017 at 20:06

    Named on the bench.

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 20:55


Mystic Mac · 18/05/2017 at 16:15

Just when you think it couldn't get worse :I

FetusDave · 18/05/2017 at 16:33

Can you loophole with the bye players this week? Or are they classed as having played the moment the round starts?

    bigbadbrad · 18/05/2017 at 16:37

    Yep u can loophole them. They don't lock out until the start of the final game on Sunday.

Apache · 18/05/2017 at 16:43

Whats the communitys opinion of Josh Kelly? Is he a valuable premium?

    Danners · 18/05/2017 at 19:12

    I can't see him being a top 10 mid, he would have to average probably 110 for that

    Beezneez · 18/05/2017 at 20:04

    Had him from the start and am happy given his opening price. Tossed up between him and Oliver who I might get in after his bye as long as he is not too pricey. Kelly got lots of the footy last week and very happy with his 147 compared to some of the other so called premos.

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 20:58

    Playing well recently

Steve · 18/05/2017 at 16:47

Thoughts on who will be the top 6 fwds this year

    Ja191 · 18/05/2017 at 16:52

    (in no particular order)

      DefyingMadness · 18/05/2017 at 17:32

      I think this will be top 6 also

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 17:01

    i reckon:


    Finnius123 · 18/05/2017 at 17:17

    Macrae, dahl, yeo, nank, JJK, buddy

      Tyruddanaut · 19/05/2017 at 08:19


    SF4 · 18/05/2017 at 19:33

    Macrae, Dahl, yeo, rooey, Heeney and T.lynch

    Top Gun · 18/05/2017 at 21:00

    Dahl, Macrae, JJK, Yeo, Heeney, Roo

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 21:02


    BlueNath · 18/05/2017 at 21:55

    Vickery, Balic, McCarthy, Eddy, Parsons, Hannan,

      Derek · 18/05/2017 at 22:17

      Dawson kicked a goal in the Seconds

Stealth · 18/05/2017 at 16:57

How many trades do people have and where should we be at. I have 24 and haven't traded this week yet.

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 17:03

    that is way too many. You must start using them asap

    Finnius123 · 18/05/2017 at 17:16

    I have 15 after this week lol

    INPieman · 18/05/2017 at 17:34

    20 going into this round. And no doubt using 2 this week. Woukd like to have 4 available

      TheLoneRanger · 18/05/2017 at 17:44

      What do you think about trading NRoo for Heeney ?

        Top Gun · 18/05/2017 at 21:02

        Roo will be a top forward why would you trade him unless he gets injured again?

    Holty · 18/05/2017 at 17:39

    Hi Stealth. Before we comment, where are you placed overall?

      Alby · 18/05/2017 at 17:56

      Holty around 34000 but 6th on the ladder in cash legue thats what im playing for

        Alby · 18/05/2017 at 18:01

        why did i answer that?

          Pique fillet · 19/05/2017 at 02:46

          Ha for you yearn to please others and this makes you strive to answer question that are not asked of you. Learn to flower yourself before offering your rose bud to others.

    hedski · 18/05/2017 at 17:47

    18, definitely 16 by Fri/Sat.

    Stanks21 · 18/05/2017 at 19:39

    16, that's after trading out balic for greenwood and then trading out Taranto to bring in McEvoy as a point of difference by swapping Nank forward.. works my byes well with two ruckman always playing 🙂

    Russty_ · 18/05/2017 at 23:33

    20 remaining for me, after doing 2 this week.

    Swans2012 · 19/05/2017 at 07:42

    Yep 16 after this week for me…..I should be field rookie free with 10 left, then it's just dealing with witts and underperformers.

Harley · 18/05/2017 at 17:27

Apparently Jenkins and McKay dropped for Adelaide.

Will this Bring back the 90's for Otten? I think so..,

    Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 17:32

    My mind is gonna implode with all this carnage

    INPieman · 18/05/2017 at 17:33

    Now that would make the decision on otten a lot harder

      Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 17:56

      Marchbank instead?

      Beezneez · 18/05/2017 at 20:32

      I'm keeping him as a warm body until round 12 when I am intending to move either him or Marchbank to Docherty – unless he returns to higher scoring as he did earlier.Ii was all set to do the trade this week until I looked at my bye structure and I want to avoid as many doughnuts as I can. Jenkins did take a few hitouts that previously Otten would have contested but Otten was his own worst enemy by dropping a fair few hard contested marks he almost snaffled. He also missed a couple of sitters in front of goal.

    Justin · 18/05/2017 at 18:03

    Would make sense. Should be a major shakeup at the Crows nest this week after two insipid performances for a side that was supposedly flag favourite a fortnight ago.

      Beezneez · 18/05/2017 at 20:17

      I can't believe how the media say things like "premiership favourites after one or two rounds. First it was GWS then the Crows after they beat them. They should just keep a lid on their inane comments. As for the Crows it was always going to be on the cards that there would be changes after insipid performances from some of their players. Lever back will make a difference and I was expecting (hoping) Greenwood and especially Gallucci got a game.

    Hoot · 18/05/2017 at 20:07

    Otten stays.

    Noirlust · 18/05/2017 at 20:39

    VC For Otten!

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 20:53

    Still trading out
    Can't make enough cash to justify keeping

KSinny · 18/05/2017 at 17:39

What does everyone think about Scott Selwood, only 281k and averaged 104 in 2012. If he shows some good form after 2 games could be a handy pickup. Thoughts?

    Real Talk · 18/05/2017 at 17:40

    Lol no

    INPieman · 18/05/2017 at 18:07

    Going to need to see some pretty damn good scoring in the next 2 to consider

    Jacob · 18/05/2017 at 18:17

    If he cranks out an Ablett double ton either this week or next I might look at him … but otherwise PASS.

    Swans2012 · 18/05/2017 at 18:22

    You realise 2012 was 5 years ago?

      davo · 18/05/2017 at 19:23

      Do you?

        Swans2012 · 18/05/2017 at 21:07

        Yep holding onto the past this year! But seriously if sell wood knocks out an 80 and a 100 in the next 2 I spose you'd have to look at him

          Krazee-Eyez Killa · 19/05/2017 at 09:41

          go swans

        Krazee-Eyez Killa · 19/05/2017 at 09:42

        this is a very underappreciated burn, and that's coming from a swans fan

    Noirlust · 18/05/2017 at 20:41

    Im glad most people dont rate him, ill defo be picking him up next week. Would have been this week, but its not suited for me.

    Pete · 18/05/2017 at 21:15

    Worth a hell of a lot more than $281k when fit but how many games has he played in recent years ?

    Russty_ · 19/05/2017 at 00:40

    I think he's injury prone mate, but I hope he proves me and all doubters, wrong. He could be a cheap pick up in another week.

    pod · 19/05/2017 at 06:37

    A bargain if he stays on the park. You know he'll rack up the tackles and contested possesions.

140+ from Koby · 18/05/2017 at 17:43

If Koby Stevens is Listed in the Midfield in the centre or as a ruck follower Welcom my team obi1koby

    INPieman · 18/05/2017 at 18:08

    If he works for your byes he could be a nice sneaky move. I heard Richo heaping praise on him just before he got suspended. So obviously he likes him

    James · 18/05/2017 at 18:12

    I take little notice of where players are listed on team sheets. 5 minutes into the game many players are often playing in completely different positions so it really means bugger all imo.

    Craig · 18/05/2017 at 18:14

    It's a TRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hoot · 18/05/2017 at 18:13

Trelor is IN! WooHoo!!!

    TheLoneRanger · 18/05/2017 at 18:17

    Should I keep NROO ?

      Hoot · 18/05/2017 at 18:19

      Treloar (spelling) opps…..

        jarryd · 18/05/2017 at 18:22

        Don't stress it bro – I think we knew who you meant. 🙂

        FCAbel · 18/05/2017 at 18:26

        Not good enough man

          Hoot · 18/05/2017 at 20:04

          Bloody Disgusted!

      Swans2012 · 18/05/2017 at 18:20

      Yes will come good

        TheLoneRanger · 18/05/2017 at 18:33

        Thank you.

      hedski · 18/05/2017 at 18:36


      Lazza · 18/05/2017 at 21:42

      No… he won't get back to his pre injury form…. watch him closely … he is only running in straight lines… his knee is nroo-ted

        pod · 19/05/2017 at 06:47

        NRoo has been written off with injury a googolplex times. He always comes good so dismiss him at your peril. Remember the barnstorming SC winner last season?

jarryd · 18/05/2017 at 18:25

Phew Newman survives another week! Rejoice community!

    iLoveNMFC · 18/05/2017 at 18:40

    Surely he would've stayed after a 35+ disposal game or Horse Longmire would've been high.

      Arnold · 18/05/2017 at 19:00

      When it comes to Horse nothing can be assumed.

    ProTravo · 18/05/2017 at 20:48

    Will he go back to back 150's?

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 20:51

    Thank God for that
    Best cash generation for a rookie this year

DefyingMadness · 18/05/2017 at 18:25

Damn Newman is playing

    hedski · 18/05/2017 at 18:36


Keith · 18/05/2017 at 18:27

Hampton plays people. Looks like INPieman isn't a seer after all lol!

    Spoolge · 19/05/2017 at 11:06

    Hearing INPieman is a late out – no comments for 2 weeks….hopefully

DefyingMadness · 18/05/2017 at 18:28

Parsons lives thank god

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 19:13


      Goat · 18/05/2017 at 19:26

      One game at a time – coach likes him like berry

    Russty_ · 18/05/2017 at 23:38

    Another 30 coming up, but…better than a kick in the crotch with an army boot I guess.

    pod · 19/05/2017 at 06:34

    Parsons and O'Connor playing!? Might see if I can get a run next week, just got to find my boots.

Jerry · 18/05/2017 at 18:28

Still no Preuss. FU Brad Scott! 🙁

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 19:14

    You can't be serious!!!!!!!!!

Finnius123 · 18/05/2017 at 18:29

Parsons isn't dropped and Hannan is named onfield – looks like it isn't so much of a disaster after all

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

    It's almost got to the stage i'd prefer a donut to seeing Hannan in my team. However, I should be rational. he lives another week..

    Russty_ · 18/05/2017 at 23:38

    Until both their scores are finalised lol, I have both.

Ja191 · 18/05/2017 at 18:29

no way, parsons got named..

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 19:32

    And he plays Friday. We can see what he does before taking any drastic action

      Moosehead · 18/05/2017 at 20:42

      Derek and others. He can play but has two ordinary weeks. Note he tackled better last week than most of his team. Obviously the coaching team believe in him. Capable of punching out 70 -80 SC points

    Top Gun · 18/05/2017 at 21:10

    Horlin-Smith is unlucky. I don't have him but surely he is a better player than Parsons.

DefyingMadness · 18/05/2017 at 18:33

Ivan Soldo back in could cause problems

    Captain Risky · 18/05/2017 at 19:06

    Opportunity !! Preuss out, Soldo in.- Witts Covered. Nank stays Fwd. Hannan off the field!!

      DefyingMadness · 18/05/2017 at 19:25

      I mean for Nanks scoring

        Captain Risky · 18/05/2017 at 19:44

        Yeah, I know. wouldn't be too concerned, Nank doesn't win a lot of hitouts anyway, scores more around the ground, marks, tackles etc.
        Nank might spend more time up fwd but will still do a bit of ruck work. Wait and see but i like the idea as a tigers supporter. (Elton no good, Griffiths out of action, Chol not ready, Vickery at Hawks 🙂 )

      Top Gun · 18/05/2017 at 21:12


      Russty_ · 18/05/2017 at 23:41

      I went Preuss to Cameron Captain, to create the swingman, have Sandi, Witts and Nank in fwds…Soldo won't stay in the side for long, and isn't a dpp.

        Captain Risky · 19/05/2017 at 08:58

        That was my original plan – I have had Cameron since the start of the year, clogging space on the Fwd line bench. I live in hope!
        I think Soldo gets 3-4 more games in which case he will make the majority of his cash, then I swing Cameron to ruck bench, enabling me to swing Nank later in the season. Soldo should score ok in the ruck, it's a matter of him getting 4 or 5 games.

        That's the theory, hasn't worked well all year but I live in hope!

        I could bypass Soldo and bring in Myers but he doesn't look that tempting.

Finnius123 · 18/05/2017 at 18:36

Myers is named on an extended bench. Is anyone nervous?

    Jambak · 18/05/2017 at 18:39

    Thinking the same Finnius, scary.

    hedski · 18/05/2017 at 19:14

    Na by 6 o'clock tomorrow all good…maybe.

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 19:16

    So is McGrath

    SF4 · 18/05/2017 at 20:01

    I reckon he should be named.

    Magoo · 18/05/2017 at 20:39

    No. Out. Too many better players, even at Bomber land. he has played ordinarily.

    Russty_ · 18/05/2017 at 23:42

    Nah cause I didn't get him, or Balic thank Buddha!

    Paul · 19/05/2017 at 09:04

    Not named in Essendon's VFL side, so should play.

Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 18:36

Do we hold Otten now?
Few New rookies coming in this week is nice to see

    redherringfc · 18/05/2017 at 18:52

    definitely hold this week. His worst score with Jenkins out is 98 (i think). One decent score and it hopefully will see his price hold (maybe rise and fall to similar) until his round 13 bye.

Jim_bob321 · 18/05/2017 at 18:37

Shai Bolton people

    Don't Blush Baby · 18/05/2017 at 18:51

    Can play, I hope he does well with his mate D.Rioli

    Beezneez · 18/05/2017 at 20:08

    I'm looking forward to also seeing Jordan Gallucci from the Crows – have been waiting for his debut.

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 20:57

    Will he be another player who is up and down
    Can we rely on him for consistent scores?

iLoveNMFC · 18/05/2017 at 18:37

Stefan Martin (via DPP) or Dustin Martin?

    Danners · 18/05/2017 at 19:10

    Big Stef is more likely to be a top 3 ruck than Dusty being a top 10 mid so Stef for me

BrownlowBoy · 18/05/2017 at 18:38

Anyone got any news on Willie Rioli?

    Northerner · 18/05/2017 at 20:05

    Playing this week in the East Perth reserves on limited game time. He's stacked on a pot belly so suggest several weeks.

Finnius123 · 18/05/2017 at 18:42

A few good rookies cropping up in the next couple of weeks

    Jim_bob321 · 18/05/2017 at 18:44

    Shai Bolton and Gallucci

      Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 18:48

      Will be holding Otten now Jenkins is out
      SPP to Myers
      Marchbank to Adams

      Balic to Lloyd
      Marchbank to Rance

      Balic to Myers
      Marchbank to Harbrow and cover him this week with Stewart.

      1,2 or 3

        Finnius123 · 18/05/2017 at 19:01

        Can you do Balic to Myers and Marchbank to Rance? No point bringing in a premium who isn't going to play. Would be holding SPP now Balic is out.

          Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 19:13

          Nope, can go pretty much anyone under Rance if I go Myers. But is he even playing?

        Kev · 18/05/2017 at 19:01

        Scratch Myers from your plans, he wont play this week.

          Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 19:12


          Cheryl · 18/05/2017 at 19:32

          Kev, how do know this.

      Derek · 18/05/2017 at 19:17


TOPHAWK1 · 18/05/2017 at 18:45

Nice. Shai Bolton (MID/FWD) is playing. Could be the perfect switch for Harley Balic in my midfield in a few weeks. Hope Bolton plays well so this switch can be made. Bye friendly also.

    Lazza · 18/05/2017 at 21:47

    Yeh, but Butler is only out for a week. There is a lot of player rotation going on at Tigerland

      Tyruddanaut · 19/05/2017 at 10:00

      He might only be out for a week if the others play well

Finnius123 · 18/05/2017 at 18:46

Berry is named on the footy. Derek you must be happy!

    Don't Blush Baby · 18/05/2017 at 18:52

    Cha Ching $$

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 19:18

    Yeah mate, his DPP makes him superhuman

    Beezneez · 18/05/2017 at 20:00

    He was last week as well

    neil Demons Delight · 18/05/2017 at 20:20

    good with McGrath nice swing

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 20:56


Ja191 · 18/05/2017 at 19:01

Well atleast collingwood will do well this week, the big tryrone's been named

    ProTravo · 18/05/2017 at 20:52

    Once I saw this I went as far as putting the 'C' on Treloar

Mark · 18/05/2017 at 19:05

Thoughts on otten to Mcinnes and butler to jjk? Only way I can get a premo is to downgrade otten

Jim_bob321 · 18/05/2017 at 19:07

Do u guys reckon Myers will get a game this week?

    Dusty Spurs · 18/05/2017 at 19:08

    He is named

      Dusty Spurs · 18/05/2017 at 19:09

      Extended bench though, just noticed.

    Danners · 18/05/2017 at 19:09

    Should do, he's only been out because of his injury

    Markus · 18/05/2017 at 20:37

    Nope. He is not good enough.

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 20:54

    He better get named
    Am trading in

Chris_Judd · 18/05/2017 at 19:14

Trading Butler and Houston to Myers and Durdin (not to confident with Durdin's JS) and pocketing 380k. I was planning on trading Otten but with Jenkins being dropped and Otten being named forward again I think i might keep him up until his bye round. Thoughts?

    Goat · 18/05/2017 at 19:24

    Otten has made his way back into my side. Parsons lives and trading out Balic avoids my donut.

Top Gun · 18/05/2017 at 19:18

Preuss going next week. Doubtful he will get a game any time soon with Waite back and Goldy getting into some form. Beam him up Scotty!

Ja191 · 18/05/2017 at 19:24

am i crazy or is berry a good downgrade option? dpp and that way I can go butler to heeney

    SF4 · 18/05/2017 at 19:37

    Missed the boat. Too pricey now.

    Doc · 18/05/2017 at 20:20

    Thinking of the same move.

    I think it's only an option if you plan to keep him as a swing set, and for last emergency bench cover through the finals. Boat has sailed as a cash cow.

redherringfc · 18/05/2017 at 19:25

Can anyone give me advice on who to bring in for WHE. I can get a fwd, mid or def. I looked at johannisen, but i'm not convinced. Lloyd is just too much and has the same bad bye as jj. I have 496.7k. I also looked at T macdonald, but once bitten ….
I already have Heeney and Shaw.

    Rick Grimes · 18/05/2017 at 19:28


      redherringfc · 18/05/2017 at 19:44

      thanks Rick. Can't believe I overlooked him.

    DefyingMadness · 18/05/2017 at 19:57

    Josh Gibson is in form 🙂

    ProTravo · 18/05/2017 at 20:55


    Doc · 18/05/2017 at 22:08

    Wait a week and get harbrow. Pumping out the tons and great bye coverage. Hopefully WHE won't lose value against hawthorn

Rick Grimes · 18/05/2017 at 19:27

Can people remind me if I can use a bye player in captain's loophole?

    Don't Blush Baby · 18/05/2017 at 19:33

    Yes Rick, loop ya arse off mate, I am

    SCdonkey · 18/05/2017 at 19:49

    Yes you can, no lock out on bye players.

Choppers · 18/05/2017 at 19:28

5pm tomorrow

SF4 · 18/05/2017 at 19:37

Good week for potential cash cows.
Perryman, Shai Bolton, Greenwood, Galluci, Mountford all named.
Can't believe scharenberg is still in the vfl.

Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 19:42

Doc, Laird, Shaw, Otten, Marchbank, Berry (Smith, Stewart)

Bont, Danger, pendles, fyfe, JPK, hanners, Dusty, SPP (Barrett, Balic, Hibbo Jr)

Sandilands, Witts (stranadica)

Yeo, Macrae, Dalhaus, Steele, nank, taranto (Eddy, parsons)

Will be swinging Nank to cover Witts and playing Parsons on field. Trade advice, 17.2 k in bank and 18 trades left. Was thinking Balic to Myers and thats all but would like some guidance.

Rick Grimes · 18/05/2017 at 19:42

The way this season has gone, I fully expect Parsons and Hanan to ton up this week. Go on my sons, I have faith in ya!

    Northerner · 18/05/2017 at 20:08

    Faith in miracles I hope

    Captain Risky · 18/05/2017 at 20:13

    Drugs are bad for you.

    Hoot · 18/05/2017 at 20:14

    C on Parsons?

      hedski · 18/05/2017 at 20:37

      VC maybe..

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 20:54

    I hope so

    Top Gun · 18/05/2017 at 21:19

    And then he woke up!

    pod · 19/05/2017 at 06:48

    Parsons will come good. Not sure when or what year.

Stanks21 · 18/05/2017 at 19:45

Looking to bring in a ruckman and swing Nankervis forward. Any suggestions?? I was thinking McEvoy as a POD.

    Northernsoul74 · 18/05/2017 at 19:49

    Martin is a decent price and likely only going to get more expensive.

      Stanks21 · 18/05/2017 at 20:41

      Already have Martin Mate.

    Top Gun · 18/05/2017 at 21:19


    redherringfc · 18/05/2017 at 21:44

    Sauce looks good, but 525.

    red5 · 18/05/2017 at 23:36

    Vardy in for cheap back up for witts
    Pruess out

      Russty_ · 18/05/2017 at 23:47

      Vardy is a ver(d)y bad idea, better off going Soldo if you must bring a fill in ruck in.

    pod · 19/05/2017 at 06:24


    Dice · 19/05/2017 at 11:15

    can you wait till gawn returns?

Finnius123 · 18/05/2017 at 19:45

Durdin and Zerrett or Priddis and Myers this week? Can only afford one combo.

    BradK · 18/05/2017 at 19:49

    Im going early on Stewart instead of Durdin, and taking the gamble that he'll keep his spot.

    Zerrett is my other trade this week. Can see him ending up averaging 115. Neale is too expensive.

    So I'd go either Durdin and Zerrett, or Stewart and Zerett. Priddis is too far past his prime imho

      Finnius123 · 18/05/2017 at 19:53

      Can't afford Stewart.

    Marcus · 18/05/2017 at 19:49

    Priddis and Myers if Myers is named mate

Fido · 18/05/2017 at 19:45

Can you loophole with a bye player, such as eddy??

    Ja191 · 18/05/2017 at 19:50

    Yes til start of sunday I believe

      Fido · 18/05/2017 at 19:57

      Hell yes. Hopefully one of hannan and parsons scores well

        Fido · 18/05/2017 at 19:59

        Same for barett and fisher

SCdonkey · 18/05/2017 at 19:48

Demmit!! Waited all week for tonights team announcement, no clarity on Hannan, Myers and Durdin have to wait one more day to push the trade button.

    Ben · 18/05/2017 at 19:52

    Hannan and Durdin are named on field. Myers only question mark?

      Cogla13 · 19/05/2017 at 14:42

      Durdin is no longer named on the field, NM playing games.

Holty · 18/05/2017 at 19:59

With the news Jenkins being dropped, im holding Ottens for a few more weeks now.

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 20:58

    I'm still trading him

musicissport · 18/05/2017 at 20:00

Quick one community:
1. Trade out Preuss, swing Nank into ruck and pick up Heeney,
2. Hold rucks, cop donut, hope Preuss gets game time soon, trade Butler for Heeney.


    Finnius123 · 18/05/2017 at 20:01

Hey everyone, this is a bit of an irrelevant question.
But has anyone ever had trouble when you try and comment on an article a message pops up saying, the URL you have entered is incorrect, and to try again. Not sure why as i have been commenting like this for a while now and all of a sudden it doesn't work.
Any tips?

    hedski · 18/05/2017 at 20:39

    Try to refresh the page first Bruh?

    neil Demons Delight · 18/05/2017 at 20:41

    had same problem a while back my wife made a comment and changed the name up top. happened 3 times.Another problem I have is some of the comments are a day old when they appear on screen don't change your name

      hedski · 18/05/2017 at 20:54

      Get yourself a WordPress or intense debate account Neil, should be able to join at the bottom of page near where you comment.

        neil Demons Delight · 19/05/2017 at 08:21

        didn't know that thx mate

    Top Gun · 18/05/2017 at 21:21

    Nope just had a few comments eaten

Brad · 18/05/2017 at 20:08

If u start SPP on the ground at the start of tomorrow's night game is he locked or can u still sub with your bench?

    Hoot · 18/05/2017 at 20:12

    Can be moved / swapped

BlueNath · 18/05/2017 at 20:10

After lockout, can Bye players (Port and GC players) be subbed off the bench for loophole purposes? Or are they locked into position (as if they have played)??

    Hoot · 18/05/2017 at 20:11


    Kim · 18/05/2017 at 20:40

    They are not locked in at all as they as all not playing this weekend.

Nick · 18/05/2017 at 20:11

Should I trade Preuss or WHE? Preuss isn't playing a better option to offload?

GO TYLESS HAWKS · 18/05/2017 at 20:13

As a Hawthorn supporter i hope Ty Vickery is a late change with James Sicily (Swing man also) DPP lol young talent = Good luck do a Newman Alistair worked as Horse brought in Newman last week and looked what happened the swans won and Newman got 35 disposals

Fido · 18/05/2017 at 20:13

Gotta love newman at d6 right now. Dont see any reason why he cant show similar efforts and pump out some 80-100s. Another 150+ and he's a keeper.

I've traded like a loon, but are ranked just outside the 1000 and like the look of my team. Rockliff sucks.

My question is: sloane or neale as my final mid?

    Finnius123 · 18/05/2017 at 20:15


Boitoi · 18/05/2017 at 20:14

Go early on Stewart or Lloyd?

John · 18/05/2017 at 20:15

Hey Community would love some help.

I have 20k in the bank and have no idea what to do for trades. I have 21 trades remaining.

DEF: Doch, Laird, Lloyd, Tuohy, Marchbank, Newman ( Stewart and Hampton)

MID: Danger, Fyfe, Cripps, Treloar, Pendels, Merrett, Titch and SPP ( Fisher, barret, Pickett)

RUCK: Sandy, Gruny ( Strndica)

FWD: Franklin, Dahl, Nank, Parsons, Balic, Butler ( Tom Lynch, Eddy)

I am unsure what do with Balic and Butler this week so any suggestions would be handy.

Cheers fellas

    Stanks21 · 18/05/2017 at 20:43

    Cut them both, look to build cash or upgrade to a premo. Balic wont be back any time soon and Butler is out this week…

      John · 18/05/2017 at 22:06

      who would i get i if i downgrade both

    smart as s · 19/05/2017 at 01:11

    balic to mccluggage, eddy to stewart

Noirlust · 18/05/2017 at 20:15

RIP Nankervis

Soldo joins the party

    hedski · 18/05/2017 at 20:43


    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 20:51

    Hopefully Nank breaks the trend and goes massive

The BONT · 18/05/2017 at 20:18

Do i go early on Fraser McInnes or get a donut in my forwardline bench

    Steve1 · 18/05/2017 at 20:24

    Im in the same boat, i don't like donuts and i don't like trading in after 1 game. But he's winning for me out of durdin and stewart.

      Cogla13 · 19/05/2017 at 14:46

      Consider Bolton or Greenwood? Petrie will be back in a week if not this week.

Bradk · 18/05/2017 at 20:18

Anyone have the guts to captain fyfe against carlton on sunday? Reckon he's due for a 170 or something

    Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 20:56

    I have to decide between him and Pendles for C and Danger/Selwood/Bont for VC

Noirlust · 18/05/2017 at 20:21

Fraser McInnes, hows this kids security, and role. Missed what he did last week.
Has a nice fwd/def swing

Ken · 18/05/2017 at 20:25

What do we do with Shaw?

    Stanks21 · 18/05/2017 at 20:44

    Keep. Will still be a consistent player and is not worth wasting a trade on

    SF4 · 18/05/2017 at 20:55


    Lazza · 18/05/2017 at 21:55

    If you don't have him, look elsewhere for now …. have a look at him later in the season if he turns his game around … there is nothing so far this year to suggest he will be Top 10 let alone Top 6. He started to fall off the place after last year's Bye round.

    pod · 19/05/2017 at 06:41

    Loophole him if you can.

Dnoyes · 18/05/2017 at 20:27

Are there any Freo fans here with some info on Walters? With Stephen Hill back in the team will he still be getting a decent amount of time in the middle?

Shammers · 18/05/2017 at 20:38

Thinking of going butler to heeney and otten to mcinnes this week. Reckon fmac is a solid option at 155k even though he's a slight risk? Or should I be looking at vickers willis or even berry?

Doc · 18/05/2017 at 20:41

Butler to Myers
WHE to Zerret

Can avoid a donut with both options.

    Doc · 18/05/2017 at 20:45

    Or Butler to Buddy or Heeney

      JDP · 18/05/2017 at 21:02

      Get Merrett m8 – he is a gun

Tim · 18/05/2017 at 20:41

Got a big dilemma this week. Do i mutimer, which means i gotta play Hannan on field? Or go early on someone like Mciness, Greenwood, Stewart (bombers) or one of the GWS boys like Lloyd or Perryman? Its not idea but gotta double downgrade and already going Myers

Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 20:41

Balic to Myers this week and a downgrade + Marchbank to Harbrow next week. Good idea?

Tommo09 · 18/05/2017 at 20:42

After teams should I still go Otten and Butler to Adams and Myers?
I don't think Otten can make much more cash even if he plays well this week

Harley · 18/05/2017 at 20:55

with the inclusions of Wallis and Rampe it will be interesting to see how it affects other players scoring in their respective teams this weekend, positively or negatively.

Guys like Lloyd, Mills and Newman / the Bont and Dahlhous.

I think it will help improve Mills and Dahlhouse.

Was going to bring in the Bont for Rocky but I might hold on that for now to see what happens. Bring in Kennedy or Cripps I think.

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 22:28

    Mills and Jones will get more mid time. Heeney more forward and wing.

The Nank · 18/05/2017 at 20:59

marchbank or otten on field?

    Harley · 18/05/2017 at 21:02


    Hawkas2017 · 18/05/2017 at 21:02

    Who else is on your field in defence?

      The Nank · 18/05/2017 at 21:07

      laird – adams – shaw – hibberd – newman

        Hawkas2017 · 18/05/2017 at 21:11

        Otten without Jenkins playing vsing Brisbane his lowest score has been 98 from 4 without him playing. If you have a non playing rookie on the bench then you could loophole newman and marchbank for the remaining spot. Otherwize otten and newman. GL

        Wedge · 18/05/2017 at 21:12

        Can you loophole?

    Pete · 18/05/2017 at 21:14

    I dumped Otten last week but if I still had him I would play him on field. With Jenkins omitted he is more likely to have a SC friendly role.

    SF4 · 18/05/2017 at 21:56

    Otten could do well this week, Jenkins out of the side and we all know he's scoring potential.

    redherringfc · 18/05/2017 at 22:08

    good problem to have.

Boltons Blues · 18/05/2017 at 21:04

Not enough cash to upgrade, so will need to double downgrade.
Can get Myers cause of no swing, so Butler and Balic, down to who? Stewart? Durdin? only need 1 decent one, the other will be on the bench after this week

    Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 21:12

    Myers and durdin. I'm only going Balic to Myers this week

    Cogla13 · 19/05/2017 at 15:38

    Have a look at Bolton from the tigers. He's only playing his first game but I think the tiges will give him an extended run at it like they did with Rioli last year.

Mel · 18/05/2017 at 21:11

122k – Trade options with Byes in mind welcomed. Thinking of Myers as a downgrade and maybe a FWD. Options?
Shaw, Tuohy, Otten, Newmann, Marchbank, Berry (Hampton, Hibberd)
Adams, Danger, Pendles, Fyfe, JPK, Taranto, Merrett, Pepper, (Beams, Barrett, Balik)
Martin, Sandi (Strnadica)
Nank, Buddy, Roughy, Dahl, Macrae, Butler (Eddy, Parsons)

    Tyruddanaut · 18/05/2017 at 22:31

    Swap Adams DEF and put Beams on field
    Otten has peaked with his role change. Trade him out and get Myers in Mid with Adams DPP
    Trade Butler and Sub Baltic to FWD
    Play Parsons on field for Balic
    Choose trade in, I recommend Heeney but it's your preference

hedski · 18/05/2017 at 21:18

Desperate times peoples.

    neil Demons Delight · 18/05/2017 at 21:24

    could have been worse at least Fisher got a game but seriously this kid can play tackles hard like a caleb daniels I think he may do a newman at least half a newman surprise us all.looking closely at ryder for the final forward

      Derek · 18/05/2017 at 22:26

      Ryder will be in my team next week

    Tyruddanaut · 18/05/2017 at 22:25

    I didn't see any bad changes. Can you please elaborate?

      hedski · 19/05/2017 at 06:57

      Talking about my squad mate, desperate times desperate measures.

Alex · 18/05/2017 at 21:24

Hannan and Durdin named on field…

Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 21:33

Barrett just said balic will almost certainly be requesting a trade back to melbourne. Bench Boy Balic is gone for Myers this week for me anyway.

    Hawkas2017 · 18/05/2017 at 21:40

    Yeah just heard that on the footy show

JAL · 18/05/2017 at 21:42

Thoughts on Daniel Loyd from GWS scored a 54 in his first game playing again this week…?

    Weasel · 18/05/2017 at 21:53

    Yeah had a good look but decided to hold on rookies. Interested to see Bolton, Galluci and especially Greenwood this week. Greenwood averaging 8.5 tackles a week in the SANFL as a tall mid.

    Spoolge · 19/05/2017 at 11:18

    Very good player he is but with Deledio and Griffin to come back in soon.

      Cogla13 · 19/05/2017 at 15:42

      Devon Smith just went down so JS has improved.

    Relton · 19/05/2017 at 15:12

    coniglio out for another 10. lloyd looks the goods!

Declan · 18/05/2017 at 21:43

Is it too late to trade in Berry only about 210k and could possibly go up by another 130k with the increase midfield time. Also now Rockliff is out for next 2 will he be given more of a midfield role? Need to downgrade a defender so that I am able to upgrade butler to hanners/merrett as they both have low BE and its probably the lowest they will be possibly for the rest of the year. Not many options, not wanting to go to McInness or go early on someone like Perryman and not sure about McNiece is ever going to get named again and can't wait or hope that Scharenberg will be named so is berry the best option and worth the trade?

    Tyruddanaut · 18/05/2017 at 22:24

    I would say so… but I usually choke at those decisions

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 22:25

    Have a think about McCluggage

Jambak · 18/05/2017 at 21:45

Will Myers play this week?

    Top Gun · 18/05/2017 at 22:46

    Green and J. Merrett to miss out imo. Between Myers and Bird who will play but if the heavens open Bellchambers may get the chop.

Daniel · 18/05/2017 at 21:46

Who looks the better option long term as a top 10 defender out of Lloyd and Johannissen? Rampe back may affect Lloyds scoring while Boyd out may affect Johanisens scoring as well

    Top Gun · 18/05/2017 at 22:47


    Russty_ · 19/05/2017 at 00:11

    I've had Lloyd from the start Daniel, he's pretty reliable, Rampe never scored that much anyway…and it'll take him several weeks to get back in the groove.

    Swans2012 · 19/05/2017 at 07:44

    Ramos and Lloyd play different roles, I'm not concerned

Pom · 18/05/2017 at 21:47

Speculating on trading in Jarred Waite?
Unreliable and injury prOne but likely to make more coin from now till his bye than Pickett/eddy/parsons/hannan/black.
Big ceiling, BE of 1. 190 in his rolling average for next week too.
Chasing points, but chance of coin. Melbourne, Carlton and Richmond next 3 games.

    Goat · 18/05/2017 at 22:09

    That is a really interesting shark move. Will consider.

    Tyruddanaut · 18/05/2017 at 22:23

    Carlton are playing well currently
    Melbourne are still on track to be a top 8 side
    Richmond are good and underrated because of their history and losing streak

    I wouldn't look too far into that part

    As for the cash generation, I talked myself into Heeney but I think it's a choice of 30k or so or a trade.
    So what would you rather, money or security?

    Top Gun · 18/05/2017 at 22:48

    I agree he is a great POD if he can maintain form and not get injured.

      Billioux · 18/05/2017 at 22:53


    Weasel · 18/05/2017 at 23:08

    I've had sleepless nights this week considering the same.

      Billioux · 18/05/2017 at 23:22

      Not now. Not ever. 190.. Then 46..Then 129.. Then 4 frees against in first 10 min then reported out for 5 weeks then oh my back is sore out for 4 weeks then next year.. same same.

Bob · 18/05/2017 at 21:49

WHE to Walters?

    Jimmy · 18/05/2017 at 22:02

    Balic to Myers via DPP and Butler down to Durdin (leaving around $260k for upgrades later)
    Butler to durdin and Otten up to a premium who is $537k or less

      Jimmy · 18/05/2017 at 22:03

      sorry accidentally clicked on your reply button

      Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 22:10


    Tyruddanaut · 18/05/2017 at 22:18


    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 22:23

    SHill named. Bad for Walters

Jimmy · 18/05/2017 at 22:04

Balic to Myers via DPP and Butler down to Durdin (leaving around $260k for upgrades later)
Butler to durdin and Otten up to a premium who is $537k or less

    Derek · 18/05/2017 at 22:23

    Butler back next week. R12 bye

Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 22:14

Will be picking up Harbrow next week, looks to be in form

    Doc · 18/05/2017 at 22:21

    No brainer

    pod · 19/05/2017 at 06:39

    Tempting trade for sure.

Tyruddanaut · 18/05/2017 at 22:17

When you realize you have only 4 premiums til full premo

    Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 22:30

    Same if i trade a backline premo in this week but will be holding off and getting harbrow next. So 5 it is for me.

    Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 22:30

    How many trades you on?

      Tyruddanaut · 19/05/2017 at 08:29


    Russty_ · 19/05/2017 at 00:05

    Depends on your definition of a premo I guess, let's have a look at your team.

      Tyruddanaut · 19/05/2017 at 08:28

      These are just my premiums to save time:
      Def: Doch, Laird, Adams
      Mid: Bont, Danger, Fyfe, Titch, Pendles, Treloar, Oliver
      Ruck: Grundy, Sandilands
      FWD: Dahl, Lynch (GC), Buddy, Nank, Heeney, Roughy

        kim · 19/05/2017 at 08:50

        I'm not sure i would count roughy as a keeper unless he keeps pumping out 95+ scores. Last couple have been good but i dont see him as a keeper, need yeo or macrae in the long run.

TigerNut · 18/05/2017 at 22:55

Sorry Lek mate but I have to disagree with a few on the sheet. Sam Durdin is a definite No. Shaun Burgoyne? Why bring him in if he's only good for a 10th finish at best in Defence. Balic should be everyone's last priority to trade. If people were to trade Balic to Myers it would net 80k. Can't upgrade another player with 80k. Telling people to bring in a port or gc defender after their bye is plain wrong. Only relevant defender would be Pittard only. I feel you can't trade for 3/4 rounds for byes and bring in players you wouldn't normally bring in for the sake of someone playing throughout a bye round where another wouldn't.

    TigerNut · 18/05/2017 at 23:05

    Plus Fyfe isn't prime for the picking. Clearly his broken leg has hindered his output. Barlow was never the same after his broken leg. I've had Fyfe from the start and I will be Holding. For the same price people can bring in Merrett. But personally i would not be telling anyone to trade him in. Still a good player just not his Brownlow form

    Cogla13 · 19/05/2017 at 15:50

    You have to trade Balic before the byes. You need as many warm bodies as you can get. Same for Eddy if not chosen Round 11.

Jordan · 18/05/2017 at 22:57

Hi Community I would love some help!!! I have 7.9k and I am planning on making two trades this week
Powell pepper to Lloyd and otten to laird would leave me with 100 coins but I listened to the podcast and now want to keep Powell pepper what should I do instead I have Powell pepper balic otten and Marcbanh on the chopping block

    Billioux · 18/05/2017 at 23:29

    SPP and Otten (with Jerka out) both total hold for now,if still in your side.

    Tyruddanaut · 19/05/2017 at 08:24

    I reckon balic this week. All of the others have potential still

TigerNut · 18/05/2017 at 23:01

Hugh Greenwood MID/FWD named for Adelaide. Shai Bolton MID/FWD named for Tigers. Both 117k. One of them could be a better option than MID only Myers 133k

    Weasel · 18/05/2017 at 23:11

    Agree with Greenwood. Tackling machine and can see him playing high half forward role. Should see plenty of it too against the Lions

Jay · 18/05/2017 at 23:06

I've undone all trades until Myers is confirmed (or not). I can wait until Saturday, There are no Dogs or Cats players in my trade plans so will re assess later

    Russty_ · 18/05/2017 at 23:52

    Good to know.

garfield_da_cat · 18/05/2017 at 23:20

i need to pick a forward to trade in issac heeney or jackson mcrae?

    Russty_ · 18/05/2017 at 23:52

    Heeney's cheaper, MacRae's probably more reliable, proven…flip a coin.

Deeboss · 18/05/2017 at 23:30

Good evening lads…. is Jack Steele a keeper?
Thinking about bringing him in this week…

    Russty_ · 18/05/2017 at 23:50

    Could be Deeboss, could even get better too, this is his breakout year, so far.

Joshua · 18/05/2017 at 23:56

Balic to Myers or wait and see what Bolton and Greenwood can do (both MID FWD DPP)

    Russty_ · 18/05/2017 at 23:58

    Wait and see if Myers gets a game first.

Steve · 19/05/2017 at 00:25

JJK or Koby Stevens?

    Russty_ · 19/05/2017 at 00:36

    Tough one Steve, JJK is doing pretty well so far but can be up and down, Stevens started on a tear until he was unfairly suspended.
    Both risky but both could pay off, depends on how much money you want to spend I guess.

Jim · 19/05/2017 at 01:00

Which player should be traded out this week for myers (assuming he is named) out of hannan, who has a be of 54, or pickett/balic, who both have dpp?

    Ja191 · 19/05/2017 at 05:07

    Pickett, balic then hannan. Don't know why you would still have pickett

    Cogla13 · 19/05/2017 at 15:53

    Pickett or Balic depending on your bye structure

Alby · 19/05/2017 at 06:18

gotta get rid of Butler who to bring in not many rookie to bring into the forward line.

    Lazza · 19/05/2017 at 07:12

    If facing a donut and no DPP option to get Myers then it depends on how much cash you have and whether you want to trade up or down.
    Mid price options: Walters and Billings
    Premo: take your pick.
    Rookies: its back to Round 1 gut feel scenario .. a bet on first gamers vs 1 gamers.
    For me it's the DPPs McInnes vs Gallucci

Rivo · 19/05/2017 at 07:33

1. Butler & Balic to Heeney & Durdin or
2. Houston & Balic to Heeney & Stewart?

Other DPP riskier rookie options are Bolton, Greenwood and Galluci.


    pod · 19/05/2017 at 07:40

    Greenwood looks good

      Rivo · 19/05/2017 at 08:52

      Maybe but JS could be an issue. I hear he is a tackling beast.

    Cogla13 · 19/05/2017 at 15:56

    Boltons JS looks good. Greenwoods scoring probably better. Would prefer either ahead of Durdin or Stewart. Durdin is on an extended bench.

Alby · 19/05/2017 at 07:37

Currently have 130k in the bank only have 1 option to bring Taranto in from the middle but don't really want to close that off prior to the byes so trying to avoid that if possible I did think of McInnes though.

Arod · 19/05/2017 at 07:42

Thoughts CREW,
Butler out to Heeney, Steele or D Smith (pod)

    ProTravo · 19/05/2017 at 08:17

    Heeney out of those three.

    Cogla13 · 19/05/2017 at 15:57

    D Smith just went down at training. Booked in for surgery.

    Johnny · 19/05/2017 at 16:59

    smiths out for 12weeks. he'll be a real pod now. heeney imo

red5 · 19/05/2017 at 08:16

Butler to Durdin
-the only down ground option I can see
Preuss to Vardy
-Cheap Ruck covered for this week as I have Witts
-a bit of cheap insurance if a ruck misses a week or two
-good JS as played every game
-Preuss doesn't seem to be getting a game any time soon.
-$180k in bank

    Tyruddanaut · 19/05/2017 at 08:21

    I wouldn't go preuss to vardy
    If you have nank up forward then get strndica for ruck cover

neil demons delight · 19/05/2017 at 08:31

Hedski thanks for your advise re intense debate now I hope I can read these great comments and clues early instead of 2 days late thanks mate

    hedski · 19/05/2017 at 11:47

    No worries mate, if you refresh the home page around lunch time each day (maybe a bit after) the next thread should pop up, Panic room is there now, cheers.

Derek · 19/05/2017 at 08:34

What do people think about McCluggage. Only $15k more than his starting price thanks to a 19 a couple of weeks ago (that will roll out of his average in a week). Had a rest. Maybe he is ready to make his mark?

    Dildor · 19/05/2017 at 08:44

    All the the other rooks talk about him like he's a god, was tipped to go #1 but had an injury during the workouts. I'm yet to be impressed if im honest.

      Derek · 19/05/2017 at 13:12

      He was in a lot of pre season teams.

      Has not impressed but has had a few games now, could see some improvment

    Finnius123 · 19/05/2017 at 08:48

    Too skinny

    Liam · 19/05/2017 at 10:49

    I'm trading him in this week. These top picks get better the more they play.
    Taranto and Berry didn't start well either.

Finnius123 · 19/05/2017 at 08:55

Would you start: Hannan, Parsons or Durdin

    lazza · 19/05/2017 at 09:27

    Tough one … all low SC scoring forwards … maybe look at which team has the worst defence of the 3 … which is North … so Hannan might have a better chance at making a score…. BUT, the Cats has the better scoring fwd line …. I'm glad I don't have any of them … but then again, they are all playing … some of mine aren't :(.

    Cogla13 · 19/05/2017 at 16:00

    Durdin might not play. Possibly loop hole him. He has been dropped to the extended bench.

Dean · 19/05/2017 at 09:13

What's all this talk about Balic not playing again this year, is he injured or something?

Relton · 19/05/2017 at 09:37

traded SPP to myers! that may need to be reversed and trade Balic down too myers now.. atleast SPP is going to play after his byes warm bodies are vital… atleast beams and treloar are back for me! I'll be knockin a few longnecks and winnie blues back this weekend SC has really got to me.

HarryO · 19/05/2017 at 09:40

jeez any one able to fill a mate in on what the story is with balic?! long term personal leave?? jesus :/

    neil demons delight · 19/05/2017 at 11:09

    could be he doesn't like Lyin and wants to play under a top coach like FIGJAM

      Derek · 19/05/2017 at 13:13

      Just sounds like homesick

Johnny · 19/05/2017 at 09:47

would love to hear what people think of McInnes at the eagles.. JS seems okayish thus far? DPP too. worth gambling on ?? think i need too ax butler and balic

Tyruddanaut · 19/05/2017 at 09:57

Same here. Haha and not for just supercoach either seeing carltons changes

Liam · 19/05/2017 at 10:31

Preuss or Butler out for McCluggage ?

    Derek · 19/05/2017 at 13:14

    Butler will play next week

Octa · 19/05/2017 at 11:14

Hi SC community. I am very confused about the E loophole and a clear explanation would be most welcome please.
Do I put Butler on the field and therefore have Parsons who plays tonight and WHE who plays tomorrow night on my bench. In order to get the best score who do I put the E on? I don't want to put the E on both because I read somewhere that you then get the lowest score. Do I need to put the E on a player?

    Derek · 19/05/2017 at 13:17

    You put E on who plays first. Parsons.

    After game, if you like Parsons score you do nothing. You get Parsons score.

    If you don't like Parsons score, you sub WHE into field in place of Butler. Then you will get WHE. You are locked in then, can't try and get Parsons.

      Hawkgirl · 19/05/2017 at 14:43

      Thanks Derek. See my comments on page three

Dice · 19/05/2017 at 11:30

If I loophole macreadie on field tonight, and have the emergencies on geelongs stewart and o'connor.
Who's score do I get??

    SF4 · 19/05/2017 at 12:10

    whoever gets the lower score.

donn17984 · 19/05/2017 at 11:40

Fyfe and B.Eddy to Heeney and Lloyd
Fyfe and pepper-powell to Zerret and Loyd

    Swans2012 · 19/05/2017 at 11:45

    Is Fyfe out? Did I miss something?

      donn17984 · 19/05/2017 at 12:28

      Na just want to get rid of him

        Derek · 19/05/2017 at 13:18


          donn17984 · 19/05/2017 at 13:50

Mark · 19/05/2017 at 11:44

Not ideal but need to go early on a rookie this week. Already going myers. Which one should i go early on?
Mciness, Perryman, Lloyd, Stewart, Greenwood

Thanks in advance

Need some serious help guys, looking at a donut in the fed line unless i bring in someone like durdin for butler as i can't upgrade butler to heeney, give me your thoughts. Was going to bring myers in for balic.

Def: Docherty, Marchbank, Laird, Shaw, EVW, Newman, Otten and Berry

Mid: Oliver, Pendles, Treloar, Fyfe, Hanners, JPK, Danger, SPP, Pickett, Balic, Barrett

Ruck: Nank, Sandilands, Strnadica

FWD: Dalh, Macrae, Lynch, Yeo, Butler, Taranto, Parsons and Eddy

    neil demons delight · 19/05/2017 at 12:42

    TRADE OUT Butler for soldo via nank

      Mike · 19/05/2017 at 13:42

      what's his job security like?

    No Second Prizes · 19/05/2017 at 13:03

    Go SPP to Myers, does that give you the cash for Butler to Heeney?

      Mike · 19/05/2017 at 13:36

      I'm like 2k short

    Derek · 19/05/2017 at 13:20

    Parsons is playing. No donut

      Derek · 19/05/2017 at 13:21

      Ok Lynch is out

Mike · 19/05/2017 at 12:30

Need some serious help guys, looking at a donut in the fed line unless i bring in someone like durdin for butler as i can't upgrade butler to heeney, give me your thoughts. Was going to bring myers in for balic, Have 22 trades lefts and 130k in the bank.

neil demons delight · 19/05/2017 at 13:23

who are the 5 must haves to win it mine are DOC ADAMS DANGER MACRAE and LAIRD I have three and to go deeper need one of doc or adams if I SNARED one think I might give a league a shake without both no hope notice no rucks think there are 6 or7 equal cheers

    Steeeve · 19/05/2017 at 15:02

    Honestly judging by the top ranked players it seems the most important starting players were Murphy, Oliver and even Yeo. That's how the top have separated themselves thus far.

      neil Demons Delight · 19/05/2017 at 18:30

      they were the next 3 and its hard to work that out

Stupid Coach · 19/05/2017 at 14:22

Nice work Lek Dog. 22 trades left and $31k left. Team is as follows:
Shaw, Laird, Doc, Otten, Marchbank, Newman (Hampton, Stewart)
Danger, Pendles, Ward. Treloar, Yeo, Steele, Fyfe, Lloyd (PP, Fisher, Mountford)
S Martin, Sandilands (Strndica)
Dahl, Roo, Nank, Hannan, Butler, Parsons (Eddy, D Cameron)

Looking to trade out Butler and Hampton and would love to bring at least one premo in (either def, fwd or mid) however, don't think I will have enough cash to do so. Therefore, should I do a double downgrade (two of Mcinness, Meyers or EVW) and look at bringing two premos in the following week instead.

Appreciate any advice community.

Hawkgirl · 19/05/2017 at 14:38

Derek, I have read a lot about you in these rants and ravings and yours are the most knowledgeable to a new SCer like me. You are most kind and helping me. Thanks from another Hawker and may we become great again.

Mitch · 19/05/2017 at 14:46

hey guys
this week im considering:
OUT:Otten & Butler IN: Michael Hibberd & Myers (via balic DPP)
I have the intention for my two remaining defenceive upgrades to go into Adams and the Doch. Hibberd is pretty cheap for a player who should average around 90-95 from here on in. Also, is it worth bringing in Adams for a bit more this week instead, and brigining in a POD like Harbrow instead of adams as my D6? Do i hold Otten now that Jenkins has been dropped?

Im also interested in bringing in stef martin as he is probably as cheap as he will get, allowing me to swing nank fwd and really helps my bye structures – will be looking to bring him in next week if not this.

my team before trades
DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Shaw, Marchbank, Otten, Newman (Stewart, Berry)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Bont, Titchell, JPK, Fyfe, Treloar, Barrett (SPP, Fisher, Balic
RUC: Nank, Sandi (pruess)
FWD: Macrae, Dahl, JJK, Higgins, Taranto, Butler. (Parsons, Eddy)

22 trades left and 147.8k in the bank.
any suggestions appreciated

Steeeve · 19/05/2017 at 15:00

Great news. It appears Hannan and Parsons have been named. This means I avoid two donuts and instead may receive a couple of -5s.

FevCeption · 19/05/2017 at 15:34

Butler and Otten for Rance and Durdin?

David P · 19/05/2017 at 16:07

Do we need to field a complete team for this round or is it bye round rules and only 18 top scorers?

    Brian · 19/05/2017 at 19:49

    Full team needed

BennyandtheJets · 19/05/2017 at 16:12

Early in the week there was a dreadful rant from an obviously mentally challenged person who carried on about the fact that he selected and kept Black unlike many of the Jock community who either didn't select him or traded him out.
Well sonny, he hasn't been selected again by the Cattery. Perhaps you should trade him out or have your crawled back under your rock?
Just musing on this dampish Melbourne afternoon awaiting what should be an interesting game.
Go Cats.

NickMacMan · 19/05/2017 at 16:14

Better to trade Balic since he is out for so long or Hannan cause he may be losing cash?

Angelo · 19/05/2017 at 16:30

Someone Pieman? Knew the final Sunday teams before 5.00 pm.
Does anyone know if Myers made the final 22. Methinks Bird will take his place. I hope not!

      Er, Maxie.

Murray · 19/05/2017 at 19:37

Is heeney a premo keeper this year or should I go with a more established star fwd?

    Derek · 19/05/2017 at 22:37

    He is already a star.

Moosehead · 19/05/2017 at 22:36

Big scores this weekend with most of us having the VP on Danger.
Surely Parsons won't last another week.
Bont getting cheaper – you little ripper.

Bomba · 20/05/2017 at 10:29

I don't need to trade this week and playing for league status only however if I trade out Balic for Myers it will add to my cash reserves but I doubt his longevity and surely there are better fish coming on in the next week or two. I plan to make a GCS and PA trade next week.

    D&B · 20/05/2017 at 11:02

    In two minds myself as cant quite see the $ value in a Balic/Myers trade……happy to be convinced otherwise…

      Bomba · 20/05/2017 at 11:43

      I wonder if the SC guru's Derek and Pieman think?

Andrew · 20/05/2017 at 18:15

Newman did well again but with a couple of defenders to return including McVeigh, will he keep his spot?

    Russty_ · 20/05/2017 at 22:50

    He should do Andrew, McVeigh is an old dinosaur, coaches should be looking at talented youth, and Sydney have a history of doing that.
