Steeeve

I'm taking the punt on Robbie Gray. They need to push for finals and will throw him in the guts. Massive ceiling, absolute bargain, covers me for all the byes.
Going early on Barrett to get him in.

pilchos

exact same as me, surely cant have an average of under 100 at seasons end

Hoot

rock bottom premo.. so long as he plays more on the ball.

Leeds17

It's something I'm contemplating but they could have used him in the Mids last week and dont think he attended a centre bounce

Randomcliche

Not still sore down there?

Randomcliche2

I look in my crystal ball and see Robbie Gray. There right at top just inside the arc…that's it! Robbie Gray stuck in the 50m arc. Welcome.

Steeeve

The groin has been no good for years, didn't stop him when he came home averaging 115 last year

Ben

What about wines?

LoganJosh7

white or red?

Danners

Sounds good, if he doesn't perform, could be a handy M9 for you

Luke

good move Robbie a solid 40

Steeeve

Thanks Luke hadn't realised

stêvę

really tossing up trades this week. 15 left, but only 3 spots away from full premo so not concerned.
Option 1:Balic>greenwood
Option 2: Balic> greenwood, z fisher>bolton
Option 3:Balic> greenwood, z fisher>bolton, Parsons>D. Martin
Considering just going for it with option 3 to leave me with 18 this round and covered whole bye round with 12 trades left and 2 from full premo.

MickyB

Option 1 for me

stêvę

for reference the 2 rookies id be left with on field would be newman and powell pepper

Will

Which players should i buy this week?

Option 1 > Scott Selwood, Toby Greene and Greenwood (would leave me with 2 onfield rookies)
or
Option 2 > Pendles, Greenwood and cousins (cousins would sit on pine) would leave me with 3 infield rookies and full premo mid.

Cant decide, please give me your suggestions

MickyB

2

Randomcliche

Yoi should not buy Green. #flogacts

Danners

2, you will need DePendlebury

Tyruddanaut

Greene is, how do I put it, suspension prone

Imgonnalose

Sloane's getting tagged so I might trade him to petracca? Thoughts

lok

LOL no.

EatChickenNuggets

If I had Sloane, I would do the same, go for it I reckon

Imgonnalose

I was joking but fair enough haha especially as petracca with the bye

jez_

Anyone considering Luke Parker as a trade in option post-bye? Sure he's been rubbish so far, but he's as rock bottom a permo as you can get. If he can average 105+ from here out he's a great pick for mine.

MickyB

No

Adam

Traded him in a couple of weeks ago. Worth taking a punt on him, buying very low on him and if strapped for cash, at his price it's great value for his potential.

jez_m

I'm strongly considering it Adam. In a year where cash generation is a struggle, we need to maximise every dollar and for a guy who averaged 111 last year he's a bargin.

Danners

That is a massive punt with the way he's going at the moment. If you have nothing to lose, go for it

Top Gun

Gutsy and could be gold. Seems like he is playing with an injury?

Bells E Bubb

Hell no.

Hoot

How do we define a "full premo side".

Im thinking something like….

In your opinion, a complete team in which every in field player from the current round onwards will;

Def avg >92
Mid avg >105
Ruck avg >97
Fwd avg >91

Thoughts?

Imgonnalose

But that would exclude Zac Dawson from premo status?

Hoot

You think the minimum should be lowered more?

lok

Yeah man no side is complete without the benefit of Dawson. Might have to lower it down to a solid 35 mark.

Derek

How many times was Dawson All Australian?

Defying_Madness

I will take the 95 avg from sandi and witts not too picky for me

Tyruddanaut

Hopefully 97 this week haha

MickyB

If ur onfield team is all top 10 in their position excluding rucks who average 100+

Hoot

If you look at the top 10 FWDs who have played 6 or more games… No. 10 (i think) is averaging 95ish and is Franklin.

Lots of players in the low 90's (way out of top 10) that could turn their season around and vv for the top 5.

I.e Lynch or Wingard

Tyruddanaut

I think you're missing out on 20% of the other players. There are a lot of under performing FWDs and Bavks this year

Randomcliche2

I'd suggest 110 avg for mids and or having a reasonable chance of hitting 110, might not be to date eg Wines Fyfe, but they might get there…. so lets premo them up.

Probably need the big 3 doc laird and adams in defense….or at least 2….looks at the team sees one 🙁

Tyruddanaut

I would say, due to the lack of 100+ defensive players, those three are a must

Hoot

At Rd 22 it will be very interesting to see what our D5 & 6 is averaging. (last 10 games) & (season)

Randomcliche2

Yeah, not starting any of them was a big mistake. So I kinda see full premo as set of non-negotiable players like the three you say, plus 'others' that meet a threshold, not just all above a threshold. Lesson learned for next year. Can't pick 4 D5 and D6 players!

Tyruddanaut

I have the same problem! But currently JJ and Hibberd will fill the spots because of their byes. D6 will take some brain powrr

Stirlsy

Jock did you get on that dog i tipped you last Friday???

Stirlsy

Yeah paid 4.30 classic name Dangerwood, that was a heat and semi's this week but will be really short this week.

Mike

Will newman hit his BE of 80 or trade.

WHEN will B Eddy get a game next ppl

MickyB

Eddy is a trade to greenwood or bolton
Im considering trading newman

Josh Kelly

Eddy will probably play this week

TheGreatBozza

Ken confirmed no changes due to the magoos having a short turnaround.

I'm holding Eddy with the hope he can get back in. He's kicking goals in the magoos

Defying_Madness

He also said more mid time for Robbie

TheGreatBozza

Could be an absolute bargain

daz

when and where was this heard?

Top Gun

Give Eddy the flick. Not even named as an emergency so that means there are at least three players ahead of him

Derek

Newman won't hit his BE this week, guaranteed.

Eddy will need someone at port to get injured. Monfries isn't far away.

SC17

Looking to keep Newman through the byes then upgrading him to a premium.

Will

Sloane or Pendles?

jez_m

Flip a coin. Pendles for mine.

Danners

DePendlebury

Derek

I'm getting both this week

SF4

Pendles

Chris

Is it worth getting S.Selwood as an M9?

zilla

yes

Danners

If you have plenty of trades, yes

Derek

No. You want your M9 to have DPP

Northerner

Agree Derek. Taranto firming nicely for that role. Greenwood might push him out if he keeps up current output. But they would make a good mid fwd combo

tirade offern

m10 and/or m11 will work for dpp' s too obviously

Gogetem

Or your F7

Top Gun

See the 1000's of comments up ^^^^^^^^^^^

ITCANTBT

Greene or Lynch?

SF4

Greene

Josh Kelly

My boy Tobias Greene is a must

Jack

You going to north Melbourne?

Don't Blush Baby

Ross Lying indicated today – I paraphrase – first year ruckman Sean Darcy and mature age draftee Luke Ryan are in the selection mix this week

ITCANTBT

Why are people considering trading Barrett? Great scores and a BE of 12

SC_Kev7

Probably because he has his bye this week. I agree, been great recently. Though that might have something to do with Rocky's absence

Stanks21

Because Rocky will be back soon… which means barretts time in the MID will decline a lot.

ProTravo

Scott Selwood. That's why.

SC_Kev7

Tinkering with lineups for the Draftstars comp and… yeah, it's not looking great. Hopefully Ryan gets the nod for a cheapie down back

P_J_Higgo

Hello SC_Kev7,
I will be releasing my findings on Thursday via a new weekly JR Academy Special Ops. Post. At this stage in my forecasting the player representing greatest value is Aaron Sandilands. Will he play? I am not sure. If he does he is priced at a my value rating of $127.10 per point. I am really looking forward to this great challenge that Jock has bestowed upon me – this shall be quite a challenge.
Kind regards,
Peter

P_J_Higgo

Interesting, Jock.
The stunning reality of Daily Fantasy is that in order to put oneself in contention to win, one must be prepared to lose. This means that entrenched within your selection criteria must be a degree of difference based on which way you foresee the metaphoric herd heading.
These higher level concepts will be teased out in due course.

SC_Kev7

Looking forward it it, Higgo. Under 10k Shaz picks himself. Don't mind de goey in the mids and Broomhead up forward

SC_Kev7

Boom tish!

LoganJosh7

How come it excludes SA residents? Just curious 🙂 never played it before…

SC_Kev7

Not sure, Logan. Something on the Draftstars side of things. Different gambling laws in each state if I had to guess

Stephen

i live in SA and let me pick a team, do we not win the prize if in Adel?

Richard

Forward line carnage this week ?

SF4

Yep, have Heeney, Buddy, Dahl and Macrae all out, luckily I have coverage but it's not great, i.e Parsons, Bolton and Greenwood.

JEL

Doesn't matter. So long as you can get 18 bodies on field, regardless of position.

TigerNut

I heard Dimma Hardwick say in a press conference that young Tyson Stengle (Fwd) is a ''good player'' and he'll get a run at some stage. The Tigers have rotated their small forward options a bit this year and I see Shai Bolton''s job security for the short term good. But not for the long term. In saying that Bolton could be a good pick to get through the byes and a handy swing option. For anyone considering Bolton

SC_Kev7

Stengle on the rookie list, Tiger. I think we've got 2-3 spots open to elevate him.

ProTravo

I have Butler and want to bring in Bolton. I am interested in Tiger supporters thoughts on the job security of the small forwards.
Do you see Bolton going out if Butler comes in this week? Why do you think Bolton has good short term JS and do you think he will be in the side after the round 12 bye?

bUCKET__

Might do Sandi to Sloane this week.

Days before lockout I swapped Witts + Sloane for Sandi + Heater. Looked safer at the time. Ah well! Everyone has a 'coulda shoulda' moment at the start of each season.

Jeffreyhead

Going bang this week – newman to mcgovern, Florent to s. Selwood, spp to jelwood.
Can anyone tell me this is a good plan?

TOPHAWK1

That is a scary, very scary plan. All your trade ins will be having a bye holiday next week. That said having not seen your team, you might need bye players next week to help you with an oversupply of rd 13 bye players. Good luck mate.

TOPHAWK1

G'day community!

As always, a ripper podcast by Jock, Higgo, and Crouching one.

Rules are made to be broken.

I am not buying into this triple downgrade stuff this week. There is only ONE must have rookie this week. Hugh Greenwood.

Sorry Higgo, but I am not trading out Barrett or Berry this week. Their BE's are 12 and 36 respectively. Warm bodies, great job security, and more cash to be made after their rest this week. There is no real urgency on Cousins and Scharenberg. Not yet on the bubble. WATCH this week.

Bolton and Perryman are not must have rooks IMO. Bolton has the bye next week and Perryman has not shown enough to justify a trade.

As such, I am going ONE down and 2 UP this week.

Hugh Greenwood, Scott Pendlebury and either Tom J Lynch or Ollie Wines are coming into my side this week. The latter is a toss up.

Cheers.

(Subject to no unexpected selections/omissions/late withdrawals)

SCdonkey

Those are solid picks TH, i agree with ya TH triple downgrade is just not worth it with all the Rookies we have on offer apart from Greenwood which i already have him in my team. I'm only gonna take one rookie(depends on team annoucement) this week, Selwood and will have to burn a trade on JJK pending the injury status.

I like Wines for POD factor, So long you have 3 or 4 of Danger, Sloane, Pendle, Bont and Jelwood in your team.

murray

go wines Tophawk, not Lynch. Wines will be a lot more consistent

murray

agree with you also SC donkey

murray

agreed tophalk, Greenwood is the only downgrade for me also, agree with all you analysis on the other rookies. I am also liking the prospects of Wines, even before it was mentioned in the podcast, he has had his bye, the only premo of 469k averaging 103 and is a contested beast. Get him whilst you can as he is going to soar over the 500k very quickly and stay there IMHO
To get Wines though I might have to trade Roughead (haw) or Sandi if not named again (loophole with Nank)

Dean

Triple downgrade is the way to go if you're low on cash and know what your doing.

However that being said Tophawk what you're doing is a great selection of trades because you are only bringing the ONE prmo that has yet to have his bye (Pendles) who has a very low B/E

Those who are bringing the likes of Sloane & Pendles or numerous other premo's that have not had their bye is seriously absurd.

I think Bolton has good J/S – He was in most of out teams prior to the season proper starting REMEMBER.
However Re: Perryman I agree he surely has very poor JS especially considering GWS injury list, a few will be returning sooner rather then later.

Russty_

The only reason anyone in the pre-season would've had Bolton in their side is cause he's cheap and a DPP, no one would've known then if he'd get a game or not..and no one knows whether he'll get another game or not, the guy is seriously undersized for AFL…(70kg, 175 cm tall, 18 years old). He's certainly not a lock in rookie this week, or next.

ITCANTBT

Balic to Greenwood
Taranto to Greene or Lynch?
SPP to Scooter or Cousins?

TOPHAWK1

Hold Heppell

ITCANTBT

Thanks mate

Tommo09

OUT Kennedy Balic
IN Mumford S.Selwood

May end up going Eddy to Bolton if Eddy not named and Bolton is due to being able to field 18

Thoughts community???

SF4

Have you already got Greenwood?
Those 2 trades are good ones.

Tommo09

Yes I got him last week

Lachy

no

Tommo09

What do you suggest then

Adam

OUT Balic, Pederson, Pickett
IN SSelwood, Greenwood, Sloan

Will be bringing in Scharenberg & Cousins after the bye, straight swap Newman to Lloyd and I'll be just about done.

bob the builder

Trading to Cousins and Greenwood.

Trade 2 out of Eddy, Balic and Fisher??

Ja191

Eddy and Balic simply cause they're not playing

David

Eddy might play

Danners

Another ripping podcast Jock and crew! Wondering where Wayno has gone? Is he doing Year 12 or something? Probably need some of his hot tips around about now. But anyway, won't be buying into Scooter this week, the fear of the tag, and he is a midpriced player. Save the $160k and go a rookie.
I'm not having the best season so I am trying to get the big guns starting with Sloane this week leaving me with 2 Def ,1 Mid, 1 Ruck, and 1 Fwd premo to get. Probably be looking at doing
Fisher to Sloane
Balic to Bolton
Had $445k in the bank, and it would be $155k after these trades. I already have Greenwood.
Thoughts?

Steeeve

I think he's doing year 7 mate. Fifth time lucky!

TOPHAWK1

He is not doing year 12 stuff mate….I heard he is actually in the clink! Seems he has been a naughty boy.

Wait till team announcements before deciding on those trade options.

Cheers

Randomcliche2

Yeah, jock said something to that effect over a month ago…

Daz

I like the talk about Ollie- it looks like the knee knock was against WC? did he cop mitch robbo the week before in Bris? Im tossing up to go either this man, rockcliff or Bont ( in a few rounds) to finsh my mids, I feel ollie could nearly avg as much as bont and then the glass cannon rocky who you will get some outrageous scores from who will avg more but carries a large risk and is 130k more than ollie, just so torn!!! Do we think ollie can avg 110 for the rest of the season? if so I'm keen.

Will

Sloane this week or Rockliff next?

Josh Kelly

Tom Rockliff for sure! In his last 4 seasons post round 10, he's averaging a whopping 128.04, he always has a great history late in seasons and I'd back him for a 5th consecutive season to finish off very strong, I know there is an injury risk but his scoring outweighs the injury risk by a lot, and only ever seems to get injured early & towards mid-season, never missed consecutive games late in the season for a while now!

Russty_

I'd be tempted to get rid of Rocky if I had him, history schmistory, he's got a fkd up shoulder, and is in a team that's a pile of swill.

Shoulder could give way at any time, there are many other good mid options coming good now.

Randomcliche2

Shoulder agree. Doesn't matter he's in a rubbish scoring team, Brisbane have been rubbish for ages and Rocky an SC gun regardless. If his shoulder is stuffed I will trade him out, but I've held to check. Low BE, so I think non-owners are going to have to make a call sight unseen or be willing and able to pay well over $600k for him…Given the lower priced JPK, Dusty, Jelwood, Pendles, Sloane and even Bont I don't think you non-owners should be taking the injury risk on board.

Defying_Madness

I really want Pendles this week but I only have 16 playing in round 13. Maybe I should just go for Selwood but I feel like Pendles might be a must have

TOPHAWK1

If you really want Pendles, then get him in! You have 9 trades going into the byes.

Having 9 trades means the byes are a "Mini Super coach" within itself.

You just have to manage the risks and your team.

Cheers

Defying_Madness

I only have 15 trades remaining though, might be safer to just get Joel. For now I think i will just wait for team selections as I have Eddy and Balic.

Randomcliche2

15 is a lot more than I……if there was a few non-rnd13 rookies it would be nice….if not just roll some switcheroo trades into the likes of Bont, Wallis, JPK and take a full 6 trades into the back end of the season. If you are full premo by then I think that is enough.

B.T

Scooter to tag Sloanedog this week, not much of a problem. scooter knows how to find the footy whilst tagging and provides good pressure. I wouldn't be worried and believe he will still be good for a good score.

Tommo09

Tackling numbers could go up
Sloane is never too far away from the ball and that means lots of tackles for Scooter

Pitch 72

Big problem mate, you said it yourself, Scooter is a tagger, wouldn't rely on this blokes tackling ability to get a half decent score, big trap imo.

Dean

I do like what Scott Selwood has done thus far however its not out of the ordinary for him to start the season off well and then taper off to average 70's to 80's and this is my greatest concern.

My current defence is: Laird, Shaw, McGrath, Hampton, Stewart, EVW (Marchbank, Newman)

I'm strongly deliberating whether I go:
OPTION 1 – R11
Marchbank to Scharenberg
Fisher to Greenwood
Pepper to Selwood
Leaves me with $364,500

Then in round R12
Newman to Docherty
McGrath to Roberton
Leaves me with $21,700

OPTION 2 – R11
Marchbank to Scharenberg
Fisher to Greenwood
Pepper to Bolton
Leaves me with $529,000

R12
Newman to Docherty
McGrath to Roberton
Leaves me with $168,800

R14
Shaw to Adams
Hampton to Lloyd
NOTE: I will need to find another $50,000 to do the above two trades but that shouldn't be a problem.
That will then see me one Midfielder Short – Where I will look to bring in Jelwood, Zerritt or Neal in Round 15
as I will need to generate cash in order to bring in my last premo.

The upside about bringing S-Selwood in now is that he should reach $400k by the end of round 13 – So it will only take $150k to $200k to upgrade to a ultra premo midfield such as Jelwood, Zerritt or Neale.

The downside is if I bring S-Selwood in now, it will leave my Defence with two Ultra Premo's short, because I don't class Shaw as a Ultra Premo thus far this season.

Your thoughts and suggestions are appreciated

Russty_

Too complicated for me…if you took the time to write all that confusing diatribe, then you should already know what to do, just listen to your initial gut instinct and try not to over analyse it. Maybe trial it by trading them in and then reversing accordingly until it looks ok.

Posts that long and detailed with too many options, does people's heads in. It did, mine…we're not Women, who tend to over analyse everything and need clarification on every little detail, we're guys, who prefer it short, sharp and to the point.
No offence…but learn how to shorten your stuff.

Dean

Russty it would have been a lot easier to just ignore my entire post and say nothing mate.
No offence but you seem like a very bitter individual and I won't lower myself to your standards Re: Woman and so forth.

It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

Russty_

Yeah I know Dean I probably should've ignored it but I was honestly trying to help, tried to read it 3 times and it still didn't make sense, talking about what you're going to be doing in round 11, 12 and 14?…sorry it just did by head in with it's verbosity.
Not bitter about anything mate..and I'm certainly not a misogynist as you alluded to, (which I don't appreciate).

Here's a cliche quote from someone else for you mate, as you saw fit to throw one at me…"A bird in hand, is worth 2 in the bush".

Jack

Oh my god Russty_ you are a disgrace to the supercoach community, a low life individual who talks big game behind the computer in your parents house but really anything over 900 for you in the byes is a win for you…. stop trolling

The Ranger

Option 2 Dean but I don't see Bolton as a must have.
Maybe look at a non playing DPP loophole player for later in the season.

Dean

Cheers mate, yeah leading this way at the moment anyway.

Derek

SSelwood will be a case of after the byes, you'll say, why do I have SSelwood?

Dean

That's what im concerned about due to being this late in the season. Had it of been earlier in the season then it's a no brainier. Decisions, Decisions.

Derek

Newman this week and pepper next week

Randomcliche2

Having your full team there would be useful (and longer, sorry Rusty, some of us like the details….). I just can't go past not only the potential points and cash gen that scooter presents. Gives you either, 1 a stepping stone to a premo defender or 2 (best case scenario) a 3rd premo mid or 3, very valuable M9 for injury cover. I'm leaning to option 1 as I think Scooter is a better pick than all the non-greenwood rookies.

Dean

Randomcliche2 Appreciate your reply mate. This is my current team.

DEF: Laird, Shaw, McGrath, Hampton, Stewart, EVW (Marchbank, Newman)
MID: Sloane, Danger, Titch, Pendles, Bont, Heppell, Fyfe, Pepper (Myers, Barrett, Fisher)
RUCK: Martin, Sandilands (Stradica)
FWD: Yeo, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Nank, Franklin, Heeney (Parsons, Eddy)

I do agree with you about Selwood, however his price makes it difficult for my team to become full premo by round 15 at the very latest.

Randomcliche2

I'd focus on that M8 position. I think you might need to run shaw a bit longer. I see 4 defensive upgrades and one mid. Doc Adams Roberton and Lloyd (rnd 14) are all good targets. The M8 position filled perhaps Wines/Gray this week. Just remember that each week that cash is on the bench it could have been a premo on field given the presence of premo PA/GCS post bye players. Scooter to make more cash than Bolton? I've mapped trades and values out to rnd 15 to make sure I can afford full premo, it seems challenging but it's doable. Give it a shot.

Dean

Cheers mate appreciate the feedback.

For example Bolton is projected to reach $229k by round 15 – that's a $112k increase.
Scooter is projected to reach $427k by round 15 – that's a $145k increase.
So we are talking about a cash generation difference of approximately $33k favouring Scooter going by their current averages, I don't see Scooter averaging anywhere near 107 – I see him averaging between 90 and 95 at best.

Bolton has a average of 55 – with these cheap rookies all they need is the one game to score 80+ and that sky rockets their price or cash generation, so IF Bolton does end up scoring a 80+ prior to round 15 then his cash generation will be greater then Scooter's and I personally feel there is more chance of Bolton scoring a 80+ then Scooter continuing to score 100+

So going by averages Bolton most likely will not make as much cash as Scooter however to purchase Scooter its going to cost you almost 2.5 times the amount of what Bolton costs, which then effects bringing other premo's in sooner.

It all depends on your bye structure and if it's going to effect your initial plans and in my case it will unfortunately.

DavidSA

Triple downgrade $666,700 in the bank

Next week

Mcrgrath > Mont
Berry > Bont
Parsons > T.Greene

Gives me full premium team but….. Fyfe and Shiel are my two biggest failures

DavidSA

Thinking JPK over Bont atm now for 10k cheaper

Paul

Hi community need some help now ranked about 6k and have 100k in the bank, 19 trades remaining
My team currently

Adams, laird, Johaniesen( scharenberg)
Hibberd, shaw, Newman( Stewart)

Fyfe, Dangerfield, t. Mitchell, Hannerbery
Treleor, Merrett, Taranto, SPP
( Myers, fisher, Barrett )

Grundy, Sandilands
(Strandica)

McRae, Dalhaus, JJK(eddy)
Nankervis, Roughead, Hoskin(parsons)

Thanks community

DavidSA

Barrett > Cousins
WHE > Greenwood
Fisher > Bolten – this one not a must but the triple downgrade and swing with greenwood is valid

Next week should be fun for selecting Port, GC, Saints, Sydney, WB or Carlton players

Kyle

Barrett set to make quite a bit mor cash. Would avoid trading him

jamie

what to do about nick riewoldt, has he just about had it with his knees?
i have the feeling that he is going to miss a lot of footy and at best not score to his potential due to injuries this season.

could be the week for me to trade him out as i only have 17 scoring players (18 with mutimer if selected)..
already have macrae, higgins, nank, buddy, steele.

thinking toby greene?

Juggers

SPP to Cousins
Balic to Greenwood
Taranto to Greene
Leaves 200k for next week

wightyswarriors

SPP has had the bye…why trade him ??

Derek

Plan was to triple downgrade this week and then go Wooshka. Again, the lack of Rookie options is a problem.

If I go three down will get Greenwood, Bolton and perryman. Out will be Newman, Barrett and Preuss. This will give me $870k.

$870k seems far to much in bank, plus rookie options not great.

I can get Greenwood, Pendlebury and Sloane this week and have no cash. Docherty a priority next week.

I'm worried about Sloane getting the Selwood tag this week, I'm worried about rookie downgrade options next week and I worry about going early on Sloane and Pendles before their byes.

Wines might be a better option than Sloane?

SCdonkey

If I had that option to go to Greenwood, Pendlebury and Sloane, i wouldn't think twice. Unless you don't have enough cover for Rd 13 bye.

I wouldn't worry too much on Selwood tagging Sloane, I'd be more worried Sloane tagging Dangemouse like he did last year.

Derek

My round 13 is ok.

The rookies are a concern. I don't mind Perryman because of his DPP. I'll be trading out McGrath and Berry soon so a DEF/MID swinger on bench will be important.

TOPHAWK1

I am also going to break away from protocol this week. There are just too many fallen premo picks at hand and a lack of quality bubble rookies at the moment. (Pendlebury, Wines, Robbie Gray, Bontempelli just to name a few)

I am going one down and two up. Greenwood comes in as well as Pendlebury and either Wines, Robbie Gray or Tom J Lynch. Will have around 10K left after theses trades. Who would you pick out of those three blokes I am still stewing over?

I think Scooter will be going to Sloane this week. Geelong know they have to shut him down in order to win the match. I am targeting Sloane after his bye BUT only if he can get on top of the taggers. I would think Wines or Robbie Gray is a nice bye play at incredible value and hopefully start producing premo output from here.

Cheers

Derek

Out of that lot I would pick Wines. The value is just too good.

I keep looking at SMitch as well.

Shake n bake

All the guys u want in Derek have that rd 13 buy. Even if you can cover that l wouldn't do it. Greenwood yes l went early with greenwood picked him up in his 1st game took that risk. Maybe a shark move Derek something you think might pay off. Your team will start looking like everybody else because im sure a lot of teams in front of you will look at Pendels & Slone after rd 13 who don't have them. If you go with your trades hope I'm up against you rd 13 haha.

Derek

Good point about making my team look like everyone else's.

I have to get Docherty next week, I'm sick of watching him score 120's.

Maybe I pass on Sloane. He has a big target on him now

Rick Grimes

I'm going to hold off on Sloane until I'm certain he can handle the tag. No doubt one of my premiums will go down before season end and I can always jump on him then if he's absolutely essential.

neil Demons Delight

Bont is surely a must have even more so than Sloane or pendles Only two sub par games and flies home Priddis is another to look at also We play each other in Agraders this week On top but your team looks unbeatable also play sassy and Tophawk in trigs and cashy so not looking good

Derek

my team is coming together. had a horrible start with 3 sub 2k scores in first 4 weeks, and i didn't even have Lobbe this year.

Just backed the wrong Premiums.

i very carefully planned for the byes, so i should have 21 play this week, 22 next week and 20 in round 13.

I need a few wins and hopefully make the finals and cause some problems then

Dean

Derek I personally won't bring in premo's that haven't had their bye, I just don't see the point although granted guns like Sloane & Pendles have extremely low B/E so I see your logic behind it.

I find starting with players predominantly Pendles is a must as there scores week to week can't be ignored and the same applies with Sloane, im glad I started with them.

Those who wanted Sloane should have picked him up after round 9 – I prefer to downgrade in the first week of the byes.

Randomcliche2

Does anyone have access to center bounce stats that can tell me if there has been a drop off by Macrae in the last two weeks with Wallis returning?

Thanks in advance!

waynesworld

I think wallis will have an in packed on the bonts score more.
Bont will do alot more outside work which lower his contested ball

Mich

In packed

Sellars1220

A bit stuck here so here's the trades I'm considering

Option 1. JJK, Newman, SPP > Greene, Adams, Greenwood

Option 2. JJK, Eddy, SPP > Greene, Scottwood, Greenewood

Option 3. JJK, Fisher, SPP > Sloane, Scottwood, Greenwood

Dean

Option 3

As I have stated several times. It has me baffled why people would bring in Premo's who have not had their bye rounds.
Granted if you want to bring in one such as a Sloane or Pendles I see the logic behind it as their B/E is very low but don't bring in two premo's that haven't had their bye's yet, it's just absurd.

murray

3

Randomcliche2

If it sends you to full premo 1, but if you need more cash gen, then 3, whoops, just saw it was Greene in the first two. #noflogs
Option 4. Wallis/Buddy/TJL + Adams + Greenwood if it sends you full premo, or very nearly to it.

James

Any suggestions for trades for my team? Dunno who to trade or even if I should trade, any help would be appreciated.

DEF: Adams, Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Newman, Otten EMG – Stewart, Berry

MID: Danger, Zorko, Bont, Selwood, Treloar, JPK, Fyfe, Powell-Pepper EMG – Lloyd, Barrett, Miles

RUCK: Grundy, Sandilands EMG- Strnadica

FWD: Macrae, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Nank, Greenwood, Parsons, EMG- Stewart, Eddy

Gus

Robbie Gray, Ollie Wines or Brad Ebert – only want one of them – which one do you take? Robbie is a bargain but no game time in the middle. Ebert best choice, but Ollie and Robbie well priced…dilemma, dilemma!

Tom

Ebert – will cost you more but will score more in long run.

SCdonkey

Waiting patiently for these players to be named this week;
L Ryan $117K Ross mentioned his name, but never go by what Ross says.
F McInnes $153K on the Bubble his name has been mentioned so many times in the WCE website likely to be in this week. JJK is out for 3 weeks, Lycett is another week or two away.
B McNiece $102 on the Bubble
B Eddy

Kyle

Would be careful mate. JJK is out for 3 weeks but one of those is his bye. Meaning he will only miss 2 games and suddenly doesnt sound so bad. If mcinnes only gets 2 games and is dropped when JJK returns is it really worth bringing him in?

waynesworld

Yes but JJK could easily become a 4 to 6 week spell.
Think the eagles are trying to convince themselves that its 3 weeks only.

SCdonkey

Good point, if, that's IF McInnes play well and Petrie spuds it up. Then Simmo will have to weigh his options with McInnes and Petrie like what he did in past two weeks.

Will have to gamble on that IF and hopefully it falls in my favour. Plus i only need McInnes to play a handful of games to make some cash and ready for upgrade few weeks after the bye rounds.

Dean

You would be a donkey bringing in McInnes hoping he is a upgrade Rookie straight after the bye rounds.
If you're going to gamble bringing in a player such as McInnes then bring him in to remain on your bench as HOPEFUL cover and maybe a potential upgrade towards the end of the season if you have enough trades to spare.

I have contemplated bringing McInnes into my side if named, but IF I bring him in he is there to stay.

DO NOT BRING HIM IN HOPING HE WILL BE A UPGRADE OPTION IN ROUND 14 OR 15 – If you do, I wish I was playing you every week in my league games.

Ron

Will Fraser McInnes play this week. With JJK going down, one would think he just has to come back in?

Derek

i think Lecras will be back

John

And talking about it is highly recommended.

Kyle

Love your work jock. I am looking at 2 down and 1 up this week. Havnt seen anyone mention joel selwoods name yet. Hes cheap and starting to go back up in price now. Means barrett would be my only rookie mid on field. And will turn him into the bont in 2 weeks.

Also seeing a lot of people wanting to trade out newman. I am against that trade personally. Great chance that we can just do a straight swap to lloyd in a few weeks. Both will be around the 400k mark soon and excluding lloyds 4, is averaging 100. Neeman can definately reach his BE of 80 and make some more cash for us i think. As long as bye structures permit, i reckon this could be the better move than trading beeman out now.

Derek

reaching his BE doesn't make cash. he has to exceed it, and by a fair bit.

Kyle

All he needs to do is stay around the 400-420k mark and we can straight swap newman to lloyd in 3 weeks. Newman can definately score more than 80. There is no doubt about that and he can still make more cash imo.

neil Demons Delight

Newman is a big chance to make his B E so I would keep him Bont is the one in two weeks also his offsider Wallis has DPP and sc relevant goes big

Randomcliche2

Jelwood is good pick this week, can't have too much 'wood', in fact I know one person going for a '3 wood' this week, he's hoping to score a birdie…

Rick Grimes

Good call SCD. Gotta talk about it and gotta understand it's not something to be ashamed of.

hedski

Thinking of culling some deadwood this week.
Ballic => Bolton
Preuss => Sterndicka
Fisher => Wines
Not completely sold on Bolton yet, let's me hold the likes of Stewart, Berry, SPP and Barrett for a few weeks and get another look at Cousins, Scharenberg and hopefully Ryan.
Solid? Cheers.

Imgonnalose

Sounds good hedski, I assume you already have a fair bit of cash?
I wasn't sold on Bolton at first, but I think he would have been playing a lot earlier in the season if it wasn't for injury and suspension

Danners

Looks solid to me if you already have Greenwood

hedski

Had a little bit of cash stashed away, not a heap, thinking Stewart to Scharenberg next week, maybe Berry to Ryan after freos bye (assuming he's on the bubble), then upgrade Barrett once I squeeze a bit more cash out of him. SPP for bye coverage shouldn't leak much then up him.
Got Greenwood in last week.

Ben

Asked for advice before but still unsure about what to do with my forward line. Possibly on the trading block are JJK, Houston and saint nick and durdin. If Houston or durdin aren't named then they are out for Greenwood. Do I bother trading out JJK or Nick yet though, other top forwards that I haven't got, Macrae, Heeny and Buddy all have their byes this week so do I just wait a week for more news on JJK and Nick? I'm not covered for byes properly though but not competing for rank so not too sure if I care about a donut or two anyways.
Thanks

Imgonnalose

Hold saint Nick and jjk for now, doesn't seem like jjk will be out for long

james

Hey community, need some help with my trades any help would be appreciated. 18 trades left, 90k in the bank and this is my team currently.

DEF: Adams, Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Newman, Otten EMG – Stewart, Berry

MID: Danger, Zorko, Bont, Selwood, Treloar, JPK, Fyfe, Powell-Pepper EMG – Lloyd, Barrett, Miles

RUCK: Grundy, Sandilands EMG- Strnadica

FWD: Macrae, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Nank, Greenwood, Parsons, EMG- Stewart, Eddy

Imgonnalose

Newman – hibberd
Spp – bolton

Jeff

Hold off on getting hibberd, both have the bye this week so it's just a waste not waiting. I'd maybe look at getting in a dusty this week-hibberd will still be gettable because of ottens cash gen

SF4

Eddy>Bolton is a good move

ken

i really want sloane.. but is joel selwood the better option? scared that sloane won't be able to break tags, but selwood also cannot handle tags

Imgonnalose

Selwood won't get tagged as much as Sloane though I wouldn't think

ken

the thing is that when sloane doesnt get the tag…he scores 130+

Danners

Depends on your bye structure, if you have about 20 playing in Round 13, get Sloane. Otherwise get Selwood

neil Demons Delight

danger will get the tag always does

ken

selwood did cop that greenwood tag

wightyswarriors

Decisions……Have not got danger yet, and this was going to be the week, via Barrett. But S Selwood looks so juicy, albeit he wont keep going at this rate. However, if I get selwood for fisher, byes are improved, and selwood and greenwood will appreciate far quicker than danger, giving me final prem upgrade much quicker. Likely wins in rs 11 and 12.
Thoughts ?

ken

get in danger ASAP

jimmy2times

start looking towards next year

B.T

Get danger or the rest of the season won't be pretty.

Derek

seriously….. you are deciding between dangerfield and Scott Selwood.?….. SCOTT Selwood.?

Dean

I had to read this post 3 times. Scott Selwood vs Danger? You're taking the pi$$ out surely.

Randomcliche2

You've got 3 trades…Danger Greenwood and scooter in that order.

Mystic Mac

Anyone else holding Kennedy (West Coast)?

Danners

Might as well this week if you can then it is his bye so he could be back after that

INPieman

3 weeks & with a bye it's only 2 & it's during the byes. You have to hold. Eagles will be desperate to get him back

SCdonkey

As much as i like to hold him. With him going down stuffed up my plan of fielding 18 players for Rd 11, they say he'll be out for 3 weeks(who knows might be more or might be less). To answer your question, I'll be pulling the trigger, will be my loss if JJK starts pumping 150 when come back. But I need to start gaining grounds on the pack ahead.

zilla

For sure, The only real avenue for goals at wet toast. ….. He will come back and dominate. Always does…

Sellars1226

Fisher, SPP, JJK > Sloane, Scottwood, Greenwood ?

Good trades?
