Tommo09 · 06/06/2017 at 19:00

Trading Barrett and Parsons to Cousins and Dahlhaus
Will leave me with 12 trades and 157k left

Targeting Doch, Rocky, Gawn, Macrae and Greene to finish my team
Gawn and Greene are coming in for Steele and Sandi so are luxury trades


    Tyruddanaut · 06/06/2017 at 21:19

    I don't think that they should be "luxury trades". There are two way of using Mid-Pricers: As a breakout contender premium and as a steeping stone for premium. Look at it as the latter

    Big Dazza · 08/06/2017 at 12:51

    Hold onto your trades , nothing much ro gain here.

Steeeve · 06/06/2017 at 19:09

People really don't plan for the byes do they? I got a very average sub 1700 and went up 1500 spots…

This week I was planning to sit tight but am thinking Myers down to Cousins and Marchbank up to Doc.

    nankthetank · 06/06/2017 at 19:24

    Marchbank to doc is a must steve, he's the #1 defender and will hold that title all year

      Tyruddanaut · 06/06/2017 at 21:19

      Adams is a much better player in general so I wouldn't speak too soon

        Dan V2 · 06/06/2017 at 22:01

        Adams is a shite kick though costs him points week in week out that being said him & Doc and slightly lesser extent Laird are must haves after that I think it's much of a muchness.

        Ethan · 06/06/2017 at 23:18

        they play in different positions so it is difficult to compare

      Steeeve · 06/06/2017 at 23:05

      Yep that requires a downgrade so two trades it is!

    Doggy · 06/06/2017 at 21:58

    I'd planned for an even spread through the bye rounds, then in the two weeks prior I had 3 premos out with injury and 2 rookies dropped who were all round 11 players . Left me with 15 on field for R11. Still got nearly 1600. But I wasn't going to change my trading strategy to cover one round, so I tanked it.

    Kyle · 07/06/2017 at 13:53

    Even with planning the byes can still go ass up. I managed a score in the high 1500s with sandi and JJK. Every out during the byes hurts a lot more than usual. So whilst a lot of the time it is poor planning, sometimes there is other reasons

    Top Gun · 07/06/2017 at 22:21

    Depends on your rank. I scored a little over that and climbed 78 places.

    Randomcliche2 · 07/06/2017 at 22:46

    I did but Sandi and special buy of Harbrow have fd that right up. #burningtrades

Wingard · 06/06/2017 at 19:29

Any thoughts on Zak Williams community? Can get Taylor Adams, have Heath Shaw,,,

    nankthetank · 06/06/2017 at 19:30

    I've had Williams from day 1 and have never looked back, but if you can get adams then that's the safer and smarter pick

    Top Gun · 07/06/2017 at 22:22

    Get Adams

nankthetank · 06/06/2017 at 19:32

Thoughts on bringing in Mitch Wallis this week?

    Will · 06/06/2017 at 19:43

    I like it

    INPieman · 06/06/2017 at 19:48

    Looks like a good option until you do research. I don't like the numbers & durability is no good either http://www.footywire.com/afl/footy/pu-western-bul

      nankthetank · 06/06/2017 at 19:56

      Oh yeah that's a bit troubling, not liking the handball : kick ratio

    Ethan · 06/06/2017 at 23:29

    Macrae or Dahl are more reliable options, would be a brave person to jump on him given his history of being a known "tagger"

      jake · 07/06/2017 at 11:13

      bulldogs dont tag

Rowlers · 06/06/2017 at 19:45

Hello all, any help is good!
this is my team wanting to make some trades got 18 in the bank and $56,900
Adams, Laird, Shaw, Otten,Simpson, Hibberd, Stewart, EVW,
Danger, Titch, Bont, Fyfe, Cripps, JPK, Swallow, Myers, Greenwood, SPP, Barrett
Nank, Witts
Yeo, Dahlhouse, Buddy, Heeney, Steele, Taranto, Parsons, Eddy
thinking of getting rid of Otten and EVW

    nankthetank · 06/06/2017 at 19:58

    Otten should go, and I'd be trading SPP for a premo mid, as you're a bit short there

      Rowlers · 06/06/2017 at 20:11

      thoughts on Wallis in the mid?

        Rowlers · 06/06/2017 at 20:15

        I could go
        Out: Otten, Taranto, SPP
        In: Wallis, Ebert and L.Ryan (i know) breaking supercoach rules but it sets me up for next week.

          Ethan · 06/06/2017 at 23:31

          Ryan didnt look that impressive in his first game so i wouldn't be banking on him to keep his spot after the bye.
          Wallis is a risky selection given that you could invest in a definite top 6 forward in macrae.
          Ebert is a pod pick but he is their go to player to attempt to tag someone. But like coniglio wins plenty of his own ball but he won't pull off big scores as often.

    Diesel · 08/06/2017 at 12:07

    otten out, doc in. Full premo defence! – post bye
    Taranto out, cousins in – through DPP (you should still scrape through round 13 without a donut or trades….. pending selection)

    I'd also be looking at scooter next round and maybe scharenberg round 13. Both will make some cash and have scoring potential and give you room for another premo upgrade soon.

Mavs17 · 06/06/2017 at 19:49

Hey guys,
Need some help finishing my team.
Im fine with players for this weeks bye.
Team is as follows:

Laird, Adams, Roberton
Hibberd, Tuohy, Burton
(Stewart, Hibberd)

Danger, Pendles, Martin
Kennedy, Fyfe, Zorko
Oliver, Selwood
(Fisher, Lloyd, Cousins)

Martin, Nankervis (strndica)

Greene, Dalhaus, Yeo
Franklin, Steele, Greenwood
(Parsons, Eddy)

11 Trades left and 40,000 in bank


    Defying_Madness · 06/06/2017 at 20:15

    Have you considered Burton and Stewart to Ryan and Doch?

      Mavs17 · 06/06/2017 at 21:22

      Is ryans JS good though? And Doch or should i wait for Lloyd to drop in price?

        jez_m · 06/06/2017 at 22:54

        Doch has to be a priority. You could trade Lloyd in later as well as a mid/def rookie (non-playing) and use them as a swing set to cover your defenders and mids if you cop and injury later on.

          Mavs17 · 06/06/2017 at 23:00

          Alright thanks. Will trade in Ryan and Doch this week

DavidSA · 06/06/2017 at 20:01

Harbrow copped a club ban for drink driving

    INPieman · 06/06/2017 at 20:59

    Yep. Copped a week for not following the Ben Cousins exit strategy

    Tyruddanaut · 06/06/2017 at 21:21

    I know a couple of people who brought him in last week. Just glad that I had to fix a donut otherwise he would've been my problem too. Lucky it's only a week though

Jordan · 06/06/2017 at 20:04

Worth bringing in cousins even though he has the bye next week?

    Hoot · 06/06/2017 at 20:54

    To free up cash yes

    INPieman · 06/06/2017 at 20:57

    Depends on your team structure & use for him. Unless your flush with trades your likely to see him on your bench in round 23

Jim · 06/06/2017 at 20:11

Mitch Wallis or Tom Lynch community? Really stuck with the decision
Already got Bont, Dahl and Macrae

    Ethan · 06/06/2017 at 23:33

    Given the 3 dogs players you have i would be swaying to lynch.
    Without his terrible scores of 29 and 36 where gold coast basically got demolished he's averaging 101.6 and he plays Carlton (a team he kicked 7 on last time) and Hawthorn (who recently got monstered by a certain key forward)

      Notorious mac · 07/06/2017 at 05:44

      But he does have those terrible scores of 29 and 36. It doesn't make sense. Its the same as saying without his 2 highest scores of 161 and 106 he averages 79

    pod · 07/06/2017 at 07:46

    Wallis DPP but I would grab Lynch.

The benchmark · 06/06/2017 at 20:20

Thought I was going to drop a few thousand after my horror score, but still hanging on to 1600 overall after only losing 600 spots. Bring on the back end of the byes. How's everyone looking towards a premium team? I'm 2 away with 12 trades left 70k in the kitty
Wonder if there is a full premium out there already hunting

    Lazza · 06/06/2017 at 20:38

    Hmmm.. sitting around 1100 but still 6 short of what I call full premo. With only 14 trades and $170k left probably won't get there.. so probably have to keep Ryder and Nankervis..

      Fisting · 07/06/2017 at 13:59

      3 spots off Full premo, 14 trades, 500k in the kitty.

      Hoping to go bang bang bang after this round and bring in my final spots.

The BONT · 06/06/2017 at 20:44

Is this a good Trade
SPP to Ebert
Balic to Cousins
Burton to Hibberd

YES OR NO and why

    The BONT · 06/06/2017 at 20:47

    OR Next week go Burton to Lloyd

    jez_m · 06/06/2017 at 21:04

    Sound like good trades to me. I'd target Lloyd next week if you have the funds for it.

      rory · 07/06/2017 at 17:08

      dont get rid of burton he can sore pretty cositsyently even when the hawks are losing

smote · 06/06/2017 at 20:46

"Nathaniel, Nathaniel let down your hair."
Thats gold lads.
Had a good old laugh at Ross being outBossed.

The BONT · 06/06/2017 at 20:48

Who is the best defender for $500,000 at the moment

    bob the builder · 06/06/2017 at 20:59

    Zac Williams is 500 on the dot :p
    Other roberton/lloyd if you can wait

    Dildor · 07/06/2017 at 10:10

    Wait a week on Lloyd and get him at stuff all price.

    Boner Contention · 08/06/2017 at 11:00

    Heater. Already cheap

Darc · 06/06/2017 at 20:49

Hey all.

Need a bit of advice on the team, RD 13 looks like a nightmare for me.

109k in the bank, 16 trades left.

Doc, Adams, Laird, Tuohy, Newman, Stewart (Scharenberg, Hibberd from NM)

Danger, Dusty, Hanners, Bont, Treloar, Pendles, Fyfe, Scotty Selwood (Cousins, Myers, Lloyd)

Grundy, Nank (Strnadica)

Macrae, Dahl, Buddy, Heeney, Taranto, Greenwood (Bolton, Parsons)

I want to free up some cash in the bank so any ideas?

    Tyruddanaut · 06/06/2017 at 21:24

    You should try to get rid of Myers, Taranto, Greenwood and Newman within the next few weeks

      David C · 07/06/2017 at 11:30

      Hold Greenwood.

TOPHAWK1 · 06/06/2017 at 20:55

Is it true?

Is Higgo is turning into a Super Coach pimp? Is he getting desperate for some real action?!?

All good Higgo, but not taking your pimpy advice this week.

Looking for smart and bang for your buck trades this week. I am looking to use all 3 this week. That leaves me with 12.
(And 20 warm bodies for round 13, the round of reckoning) Might save a trade or two when everybody else is panicking.

B Eddy to J Cousins via DDP (Greenwood)
A Otten to Michael Hibberd.
JJK to TJ Lynch or Macrae…..

I dont trust JJK's injury prognosis. I still reckon his calf is like the knee of Nick Riewoldt. Its all good, he will be back!

And then like Roo, he misses more matches.


    Tyruddanaut · 06/06/2017 at 21:26

    I think Tom Lynch could turn his season around but that's only if GCS as a team improve. Macrae on the other hand is… I don't know… it's a gut feeling that he won't go great but I also had a gut feeling that Hanners would be good

      TOPHAWK1 · 06/06/2017 at 21:38

      I traded in Hanners when he was dirt cheap in round 6. Happy with his output since.

      Heath Shaw is in the last lounge saloon this week. If he screws up again, I have a nicely priced DEF/MID replacement for him.


        Defying_Madness · 06/06/2017 at 22:21

        I like your thinking. It will be a popular trade next week if he stuffs up again. Also fixes my Round 13 bye problem

        Swans2012 · 06/06/2017 at 23:46

        Do you really think a Shaw trade is worthwhile? Shawly he gets better, and still averaging 90ish, and let's face it that mid/def is breaking out and now has a concussion to deal with….who is to say he keeps it up. I own both and expect similar output for remainder of year….

      Wedge · 06/06/2017 at 21:57

      Other than first two rounds hanners has been more than serviceable. Three rnd average of 128. 5 rnd average of 121.

    neil Demons Delight · 07/06/2017 at 12:02

    the three outs are no brainers whats eddy doing there anyway and replacements perfect but Tophawks every man and dog will do them

rex · 06/06/2017 at 20:58

Upgrade Berry, Stewart or SPP to roberton?
My R13 bye is fine

    Tyruddanaut · 06/06/2017 at 21:33

    SPP has started to look like his cash is dripping on the carpet. Don't let it leave a stain and kick him out of your house before he does any real damage

      Notorious mac · 07/06/2017 at 05:55

      Powell pepper has lost a cent all season and is projected to go up 11k this week

        Notorious mac · 07/06/2017 at 05:56


    pod · 07/06/2017 at 07:43

    Keep SPP and Stewart, both are improving and gaining confidence.

bob the builder · 06/06/2017 at 20:59

Myers to cousins this week?

    B.T · 06/06/2017 at 21:13

    Good move, Myers been nothing but crap.

    Danners · 06/06/2017 at 21:37

    Thats what I'm doing, so good move

    LoganJosh7 · 07/06/2017 at 10:23

    Don't really see a reason to trade someone who's getting games?

    if he gets dropped then definitely a viable option

The BONT · 06/06/2017 at 21:09

Burton to Lloyd this week considering Break Evens

    SF4 · 06/06/2017 at 21:12

    Lloyd will probably drop another 40-50k in the next week or so. Should wait until then.

    LoganJosh7 · 07/06/2017 at 10:23

    cant wait to buy you next week!

WC Falcons · 06/06/2017 at 21:16

What does the community think about Jake Spencer in for Grundy or Martin. Then Spencer out for Gawn when when Gawn has dropped in price after he comes back?

    Tyruddanaut · 06/06/2017 at 21:32

    Jake Spencer just isn't a good player. He won't generate enough cash to go up to Gawny without a worry and won't generate many points. If you haveNank in FWD swing him into ruck and if you don't have him….. GET HIM

      WC Falcons · 06/06/2017 at 23:41

      I would be interested to hear why you think Spencer isn't a good player. Not that I know but he had 100 sc points game one and 45 Sc points too half time before he got injured. Even if he averages 80 as the main ruck, he will make a quick 100 k. And with Gawn's BE he will drop 50 k or more. I don't care that Spencer isn't the best Ruck but I see him as a great stepping stone because I will have money in the bank as insurance after the initial trade so I won't need the full amount to trade up to Gawn.

        Goat · 07/06/2017 at 09:49

        Spencer will pay until Gawn returns (maybe). Gawn's price drop will take a week or 2 after he returns.. Who is playing in those 2 weeks while his price is dropping?

          David · 07/06/2017 at 16:43


Doc · 06/06/2017 at 21:16

Who should I lock in for D6 community?

Wallis, Cameron, Dixon, Greene ?
Or someone else.

Already have Dahl, McRae, Yeo, JJK, Nank

    Doc · 06/06/2017 at 21:38

    Or even M6.

      Doc · 06/06/2017 at 21:39

      Must be really tired … should be F6

    INPieman · 06/06/2017 at 21:41

    The most unique defence structure I've seen

    Russty_ · 06/06/2017 at 23:01

    I reckon Greene out of that lot Doc..get some sleep fella haha

    Whitey · 07/06/2017 at 12:09

    I'm going to see how Roo goes and look at him for F 6.

SCdonkey · 06/06/2017 at 21:23

I thought i was nuts of thinking of doing a sideway trades Lloyd to Roberton and Priddis to Wines and a Rookie downgrade. Then after Rd 13 bring Lloyd and Priddis(someone else) at a cheaper price.

Might actually do those trade Higgos "Pimp my Ride" strategy.

    JohndJames · 07/06/2017 at 17:46

    I'm doing the same with Lloyd this week,trading to Hibberd then in two weeks get him back,burn a trade but save 70k,have no cash so have to look at these type of moves.

      Randomcliche2 · 07/06/2017 at 23:16

      Valid move. Especially of hibb goes to 550k.

Roughead&SheSwallos · 06/06/2017 at 21:29

G'day community, was thinking this week:
Sandi-Cousins via Nank and other dpps
Newman or steward to Roberton
Myers/Spp/Barret -Kelly
Would some some opinions, cheers!

    David C · 07/06/2017 at 11:41

    Kelly has the bye next week.

Tyruddanaut · 06/06/2017 at 21:30

Looking at my F5/6 depending on how Roughy plays the rest of the season out. Already locked in the likes of Dahl, Lynch, Buddy and wondering about Heeney but I have that spare spot to fill in. I'm looking at Dixon with an easy run ahead of him but I also want Gawn when he comes fit again so I don't know whether to do an early trade or wait. Nank is my R2 right now so possibly even Kreuzer or Mummy could be good

NickMacMan · 06/06/2017 at 21:36

Are there gonna be any good downgrade options next week do we think?

    Goat · 06/06/2017 at 23:46


      LoganJosh7 · 07/06/2017 at 10:24

      oh look its Nathan lyon

stêvę · 06/06/2017 at 21:51

12 trades left, 2 away from full premo, should i go myers->cousins and newman>hibberd to make 1 away from full premo? or conserve trades

    KrazeeEyezK1lla · 07/06/2017 at 08:34

    do it

    LoganJosh7 · 07/06/2017 at 10:24


    Boner Contention · 08/06/2017 at 11:05

    Don't stop now Steve. Seems to be working….. Trade Early, Trade Hard, Trade Often

Danny · 06/06/2017 at 21:59

Charlie Dixon or Macrae?

    redherringfc · 06/06/2017 at 22:01

    Macrae, Dixon is far too erratic.

Ben · 06/06/2017 at 22:21

Is it worth dumping Myers for Cousin for a bit of cash in the bank?

    David C · 07/06/2017 at 11:43

    Myers only needs one big score (think Hannan) and then he'll generate heaps of cash.

Gjlane123 · 06/06/2017 at 22:24

Have 11 trades left and 3 premos to upgrade over next few weeks planning to have full premo with 5 trades left in either round 15-16 is that a reasonable amount of trades to hang on too for injuries ?

    wightyswarriors · 08/06/2017 at 18:14

    Too few sadly

    Russty_ · 08/06/2017 at 22:45

    I reckon you'll be royally screwed, especially when there are multiple injuries and or suspensions, always happens.

jez_m · 06/06/2017 at 22:58

I'm big on Ollie Wines this week. He's averaged 106 vs teams not currently in the top 8 and they play 8 more games against those sides in the back half of the year. Super value at $479K in my opinion.

    pod · 07/06/2017 at 07:52

    Good info, he's a friggin bargain!

    Tibor · 07/06/2017 at 08:07

    Looks hard to pass up at that price. The demons thought they could do better than Ollie on draft day when they grabbed Jimmy Toumpas, maybe learn from them and get Ollie while you can

Russty_ · 06/06/2017 at 23:01

Hey guys, anyone think Pederson will stay in the side if Spencer comes in?

    jez_m · 06/06/2017 at 23:23

    Gawn due back in a couple of weeks time so I'd say neither of them have great JS going forward

      Russty_ · 06/06/2017 at 23:41

      Cheers Jez

    Tibor · 07/06/2017 at 08:12

    They may have learned their lesson by not having Pederson in as insurance all along. He plays more back up roles than just as a ruck. Even when Gawn and Hogan return they'd have to have some plan B in case one falls over and that is definitely Pederson. Would have won easily against both Geelong and Richmond had they had some cover for a ruck being one up and getting an early injury

      David C · 07/06/2017 at 11:45

      Maybe but his scores will be crap.

    neil Demons Delight · 07/06/2017 at 11:56

    wasn.t a fan of Pederson but Hogan needs help and he is the one similar to Dawes but twice as good makes him average as Dawes was crap

ToneStar · 06/06/2017 at 23:36

Is this crazy?

Trade Kelly next week who will be around 620k to Bont who will be around 525k… I predict they will average the same from here on.
This helps with my byes to field 18 and I pocket nearly 100k to upgrade my final forward premo. Don’t need to rely on our slow burning rookies this year for $$$$$… get to full premo quicker…

Crazy or am I crazy?

    WC Falcons · 06/06/2017 at 23:48

    No probs with the move provided you have the trades to burn. Early cash is like making extra payments on your mortgage IMO. Increases equity sooner.

    Defying_Madness · 06/06/2017 at 23:56

    I really like this move

    ToneStar · 07/06/2017 at 01:26

    No problem with trades. Doing these trades allows me to upgrade Hanna to Yeo next week. 12 trades left after that with the only rookie left on field is Newman. Newman becomes Adams with 2 trades.

      ToneStar · 07/06/2017 at 01:27

      Hannan ^

    pod · 07/06/2017 at 07:46

    Crazy but I like it.

    ProTravo · 07/06/2017 at 10:02

    If it helps with the byes and cash flow it's not a bad option. I wouldn't trade out Kelly personally, lowest score of the year is a 92 and after last round has shown he is capable of massive scores.

    neil Demons Delight · 07/06/2017 at 11:53

    woudnt do it personally Kelly too good

BingoBangoJingoJango · 07/06/2017 at 01:55

Dixon, Franklin or Greene lads?

    pod · 07/06/2017 at 07:40

    Franklin then Greene

    ProTravo · 07/06/2017 at 09:59


Mike · 07/06/2017 at 02:04

Peter you say you'd do aggressive trades does that mean you'd trade in Lloyd and Macrae this week, even though they'll drop in price or would you hold off to save cash??

    P_J_Higgo · 07/06/2017 at 08:57

    Trade regardless of potential drop in price, Mike. If this enables you a more fruitful Rd.13 with trades next week I feel the point gain will more than justify the slightly higher expense.

    Go well me friend.

    Kyle · 07/06/2017 at 13:58

    Would go now on macrae. Wait on lloyd tho.

Will · 07/06/2017 at 07:40

Should I get Tom Lynch instead of Toby Greene if it means I can get Doch instead of Roberton?

    pod · 07/06/2017 at 07:44

    Yes, Lynch is the best key position fwd in the game.

      Tibor · 07/06/2017 at 08:15

      No he isn't .. He just can be and should be. Not unlike his grossly underperforming teammates

Jose · 07/06/2017 at 08:19

I think ill go early on macrae this week via
Myers to cousins
Sandi to macrae via nank

Rd 13 is going to be interesting if i dont get some bodies in. Going for leagues not rank

Rivo · 07/06/2017 at 08:39

13 trades and $20k. Do I hold or trade? This weeks team…

D: Doc, Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Scharenbeg, Stewart (Rance, EVW);
M: Hanners, Sloane, Pendles, Treloar, JPK, M.Crouch, Fyfe, SPP (Cousins, Danger, Pickett);
R: S.Martin, Sandi (Nank);
F: Dahl, Franklin, Heeney, Greenwood, Parsons, Bolton (Eddy, Stnadica).

Sandi an issue now, with 1 x premo short in defence, and 2-3 premo's short in Fwd line.

Who should I be targeting here? Any trades suggested for this week?

    Rivo · 07/06/2017 at 11:49

    ? any help here?

    Boner Contention · 08/06/2017 at 11:14

    Sandi out. Ryder in.
    Parsons to Brown if you need the cash.
    SPP to Scooter for next week preparation

Fyfe · 07/06/2017 at 08:39

Fyfe to Rockliffe?

    INPieman · 07/06/2017 at 11:49

    Back yourself Nat

    wightyswarriors · 08/06/2017 at 18:13

    again i say…ignore sc101 at your peril, especially for a proven injury prone player…I'm so glad I still have hanners and treloar

ProTravo · 07/06/2017 at 08:51

All this sideways trade talk has got me thinking… Would you say Fyfe to Wines a wasted trade?

    Tibor · 07/06/2017 at 09:18

    certainly would

      Mona · 07/06/2017 at 09:21


    neil Demons Delight · 07/06/2017 at 11:50

    yep bad one

Marco_Polo94 · 07/06/2017 at 09:24

Not many discussing Montagna as an upgrade option. Dropped $90k, b/e of 88, high ceiling, proven premo, had his bye, 1.5% of teams. Is it a role change or just injury risk that is scaring people away? Have I missed something?

    Da_Boysh · 07/06/2017 at 09:38

    i was thinking the same, people are worried about age he seems to be dropping off

    I Steele Your Girl · 07/06/2017 at 09:59

    It feels like Roberton has taken away Joeys half back role at this stage

    INPieman · 07/06/2017 at 10:55

    Agree with Girl thief. Joey was the man out of defence last season. This year it's Roberton

Rip · 07/06/2017 at 10:16

He is past it. Far better younger options

Budgie63 · 07/06/2017 at 11:01

Higgo mentioned his team is just inside the top 2,000. Does anyone know his team name?

    INPieman · 07/06/2017 at 11:25

    Mathemagic FC

Ryan · 07/06/2017 at 11:04

Who is the best midfielder option to bring in that has already had the bye?

Already have Danger, Pendels, Treloar, Merrett, Cripps, Tom mitchell and Fyfe.

I can afford any midfielder.

Cheers community

    ProTravo · 07/06/2017 at 11:07

    Bont, JPK or Hanners

    Captain Risky · 07/06/2017 at 11:25


    pod · 07/06/2017 at 12:36

    The Bont is cheap but wait another week for him, b/e 159. Jelwood b/e 62 and JPK b/e 103 also relatively cheap.

    Derek · 07/06/2017 at 13:14


    Diesel · 08/06/2017 at 12:29

    Rocky & Ablett can both go BIG
    Wines is another option that will bring cash as well as good scores

Steeeve · 07/06/2017 at 11:04

Fess up ladies and gents. Who is below 10 trades after this week?

    INPieman · 07/06/2017 at 11:24

    Not me. I will still have 12 or 13 depending on if Sandi plays

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/06/2017 at 11:57

      Same as pieman.
      Sandi out may chew up a another trade

    Swans2012 · 07/06/2017 at 11:31

    10 & 170k in bank, maybe 9 and 100k if I deal with sandi…..and one midfield spot to fill before full keeper (incl.steele,witts,sandi as keepers and puts sselwood @m9)

    Wedge · 07/06/2017 at 11:58

    I'll have ten. Plan on two next week for doc and then hopefully hold 8 for finals

    Mavs17 · 07/06/2017 at 12:18

    I have 9 after trading stewart and Burton for doch and ryan

    pod · 07/06/2017 at 12:20

    15 before this weeks trades, $80K bank.

    TheGreatBozza · 07/06/2017 at 12:47

    19 left. Playing for league wins this year after my team plummeted to 20k by being too conservative. I've won my league premiership in 3 of the past 4 years by leaving myself with 6+ trades through finals. The year I lost in a prelim I ran out of trades.

    Kyle · 07/06/2017 at 14:08

    Have 11 and 144k and am 3 off full keeper. Straight swap newman to lloyd in a few weeks. Bont in next week and maybe mummy after his bye. Then team should be complete

    BockChoy · 07/06/2017 at 15:50

    If I get to make the trades I'm planning on, I'll have 8 left but with close to a full premo side. I torched a few trades early on covering injuries (Rampe, Smith, Gawn and O'Meara).

    After the Max Gawn Disaster (when I had my captain tag on him) in round 3, my ranking plummeted to around 95,000. For a period, I got to see how the other half lived. I've managed to claw my way back to around 37,000… way lower than I want to be but all things considered, not so bad! I feel a bit like my beloved Tiger in 2014… shocking first half of the year then coming home like a train in the 2nd half!

    redherringfc · 07/06/2017 at 17:21

    sitting on 11 and one off Pseudo full premium (steele, newman, witts and pedersen)

    2 trades to get Adams in next week and make a few $$. Then sit it out to Finals only trading for injuries. Hopefully two trades per week in finals.

    Randomcliche2 · 07/06/2017 at 23:20

    Max trades haven't missed one yet, yep 6 left. 4 LTI in first 2 weeks. Full premo though Round 12 2017 https://imgur.com/gallery/fN93l what do you think? Too agressive? Overall goal.

    Boner Contention · 08/06/2017 at 11:23

    I confess.
    Have a great team though.

Mitch · 07/06/2017 at 11:13

So i come into round 12 with 15 trades.
Ive chosen to upgrade otten > Hibberd / Turner > Tom J Lynch
I can field 19 this week but i need a downgrade option for Brett Eddy

    INPieman · 07/06/2017 at 11:26

    If you've got Greenwood in the mids trade Eddy then sub Greenwood to the fwd line & get Cousins

    Mitch · 07/06/2017 at 11:42

    Eddy is only fwd, no dpp

      Wedge · 07/06/2017 at 13:19

      Once you trade out eddy you will be given the option to sub in a dpp to replace him. Hit trade on eddy and hit sub on greenwood and he will fill the gap in your forward line. Then trade in cousins to your midfield

ProTravo · 07/06/2017 at 11:17

Just a bit of possibly useless information..
After looking into the consistency of all the premo's, this is the top 5 highest 'Lowest scores' out of premo's who have played every game this season.

1. J.Kelly 92
2. Oliver 91
3. Ebert 89
4. Cotchin 89
5. T. Mitchell 85

    ProTravo · 07/06/2017 at 11:19

    I missed Doc whose lowest score is also 91

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/06/2017 at 11:58

      Doc doesn't have a low score

      pod · 07/06/2017 at 12:27

      Leave Doc out of this.

    KrazeeEyezK1lla · 07/06/2017 at 11:32

    Handy info! is this a sign of things to come, or a sign that they're due to have some down games at some point?

      ProTravo · 07/06/2017 at 11:37

      I guess time will tell. What I found most interesting is the very low ownership of Cotchin and Ebert given their avgs, consistency and handy bye rounds.

    Dice · 07/06/2017 at 13:50

    This is the list Matty Priddis is a gun at….not this year the prick

jez_m · 07/06/2017 at 11:32

Confirmed: Sandi is going to miss again this weekend vs Brisbane.

    INPieman · 07/06/2017 at 11:42

    I think it's time to shoot the big prick

      neil Demons Delight · 07/06/2017 at 11:48

      Ryder still cheap been a good choice cant deny that problem is his coach

      jez_m · 07/06/2017 at 11:56

      I turfed him two weeks ago for Goldy. He was never going to be a keeper.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/06/2017 at 13:55

    Quick get the paddles
    Nurse – clear

    No way he was gonna fly.
    Think I will cut him loose as now missing two more as bye next weekend.

    Gabby · 07/06/2017 at 16:12

    Fortunately I have had him covered. Had a really good score last week, 1889, should do ok this week, about 1850 and will get a scratchy 17 on the park for round 13. I think people forget that these are the bye rounds and therefore 22 players are not necessary. I am confident/hoping that Sandi will come back better than ever after the byes. Remember he is averaging 96 and has a BE of 65. Too many trigger fingers me thinks. Of course, as with all things in life especially SC, luck is paramount. I am merely going for rank. Good luck to you all.

Gregory · 07/06/2017 at 11:38

I have 20 playin this week so I trade Sandilands for Martin this week or wait a week for Martin to drop some more in price

    INPieman · 07/06/2017 at 11:47

    Have you heard of a bloke called Archie Smith who halves Stef Martins scores?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/06/2017 at 11:59

    If Smith named Stefano plays like jug head.

    Doug · 07/06/2017 at 12:35

    I'm thinking of going Kreuzer who has been tearing it up the past month although do have a slight hesitation as he had burnt me in the past and is certainly an injury prone prick but perhaps this is the year that he gets it all together?? Then again I also thought it was Harbrow's year too and that has come back to bite me.

      pod · 07/06/2017 at 12:38

      Golden rule, watch out for injury prone players.

Winter · 07/06/2017 at 11:59

Is Preuss to Strnadica a solid trade if my reasons are to pocket 160k and have a swing between Nank?

And Myers to Scharenberg but for 50k only it might not be worth it.
Other options are trading Stewart or Berry

    jez_m · 07/06/2017 at 12:18

    I'd trade Preuss if you have two premo tucks and Nank. It sounds like you could probably pass on Scharenberg, but it depends on how many players you can field in your byes.

    pod · 07/06/2017 at 12:23

    There was media discussion today about Preuss and how he should be given a crack. Not sure why he hasn't yet but he keeps producing in the VFL. Might pay to hold him for now.

Whitey · 07/06/2017 at 12:04

JPK or the Bont? Or will they end up the same anyway?

    pod · 07/06/2017 at 12:26

    The Bont. He's not on fire right now but you know he will produce the goods. JPK is also down a bit but he's tough and will bounce back.

Bob Butter · 07/06/2017 at 12:07

Hey guys, would love some feedback on my team as i am pretty stumped on what to do this week. At this point i think the only trade i will make this week is sandi out if he is not named. I can't see how i will be able to field 18 in round 13 though which worries me, any thoughts on potential trades this/next week will be greatly appreciated. Got 67k in the kitty, 12 trades left, ranked 2000

Laird, Doch, Williams, Howe, Shaw, Newman (Berry, Hibberd NM)
Danger, Selwood, Pendles, Murphy, Fyfe, Treloar, Kennedy, Selwood (SPP, Myers, Lloyd)
Witts, Sandi (Strndica)
Yeo, Dahl, Nank, Franklin, Steele, WHE (Parsons, Greenwood)

    B.T · 07/06/2017 at 12:52

    Sandi has been ruled out, time to move him on.

    David C · 07/06/2017 at 12:59

    Swing Nank into the ruck and bring in someone like Macrae or Lynch.

    Keenbutclueless · 07/06/2017 at 13:01

    I would suggest Sandi out. Move Nank into the ruck. Bring in Lynch or Wallis. Consider Parsons down to Cousins this week so that you can take WHE up to Macrae the following week. That would give you 18 in round 13.

neil Demons Delight · 07/06/2017 at 12:07

only D6 to go but if I do McGrath and Stewart to DOC and crappy rook my def bench is suss Hibbo and scharra or mcniece. long way to go with crappy cover thinking Macca /stewart better than doc ./crappy rook don't know but

    Keenbutclueless · 07/06/2017 at 13:08

    Get Doc Neil! I believe in Pieman's assessment of rookies, so on that basis Ryan will get better.

      neil DEMONS DELIGHT · 07/06/2017 at 13:11

      forgot about Ryan thanks cheap too

TDEV · 07/06/2017 at 12:19

Josh · 07/06/2017 at 12:32

Which back premium to get?
My current backline is Docherty, Laird, Adams, Newman, Hibbered, Scharenberg (stewart, Mcinnes)

    lazza · 07/06/2017 at 13:16

    Lloyd, but wait a week or two. You may need another unless you are planning to keep Newman.

      Mavs17 · 07/06/2017 at 15:17

      Roberton and then get lloyd in a week or two. I traded Burton and Stewart this week for Doch and Ryan.

Derek · 07/06/2017 at 13:06

Great casting of the Pod guys.

Is Cousins a cousin of Cousins?

    SCaddict · 07/06/2017 at 13:12

    If James is anything like Ben I'm sure he'll prove a real ripsnorter! 🙂

      INPieman · 07/06/2017 at 13:19

      Think he could rack it up SCA?

        SCaddict · 07/06/2017 at 13:34

        Absolutely Pieman! Your team could suffer a BLOW if you don't give him a CRACK this week. That is my METHodology anyway although it hasn't served me well lately with Harbrow.

        Bennell and Carlisle are also on the upgrade list too if you must know so you can plan your side accordingly. As a self confessed addict I'm all too familiar with substance abuse unfortunately.

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/06/2017 at 13:47

          Didn't I see you are inside the top 500 teams?
          Undefeated in the happy place and ruling the throttle zone.

          Must be sweet to be an addict.

            SCaddict · 07/06/2017 at 13:54

            Well Trig I know Lek used to have "The Gingers" as a muck around side so perhaps I should start up "The Junkies" next season and see how it goes?? Just so long as you guys don't dob me in for operating a 2nd side haha. Although there could also be some legal issues to consider too.

          INPieman · 07/06/2017 at 13:54

          I suppose this is the week your ok to lose Harbrow given only 4 bye teams. Geez he must have given it a fair nudge the night before to be .108 the next day

      SCdonkey · 07/06/2017 at 13:49

      You've been quiet lately. Must be the ranking around the top 300 making ya nervous. Awesome job SirAddict and good luck.

        SCaddict · 07/06/2017 at 17:09

        Just another lame case of real life taking precedent over fantasy SCD. It's funny that I'm actually doing better this season since all things Supercoach have had to take a backseat compared to last year when I was obsessing over it every waking hour.

        But we're not even halfway done with 2017 yet so plenty of ways to come undone as well as for those who have had their struggles early to power home with a wet sail.

Josh · 07/06/2017 at 13:09

I am getting Roberton this week and Lloyd next. See if you can do the same.

pod · 07/06/2017 at 13:12

The Bont, Hanners, JPK and Sloane all VC options this week. I think it's about time The Bont goes big.

Da_Boysh · 07/06/2017 at 13:18

OK Gents,

Here is my question.

Fyfe to Gary, if I make this trade i will have 11 left and 75k in the bank. I need cover over round 13 and it could be a sneaky move.

Is Gary back? will Fyfe lift? am I better of saving my trades to upgrade my two spots in the back line and forward line – I also have sandi to deal with.

What a debacle.

    Derek · 07/06/2017 at 13:56

    worry about sandi before Fyfe

      Da_Boysh · 07/06/2017 at 15:04

      Ok but ignoring Sandi because I will replace him with say Mumford, fyfe to Gary on its own merits – waste of a trade?

        neil DEMONS DELIGHT · 07/06/2017 at 15:23

        of course it is. fyfe hasn't been tragic and aside of that monster and couple big ones Ablett has been only OK.

Sellars1226 · 07/06/2017 at 13:23

DEF: Docherty, Laird, Rance, Newman, Vickers-Willis,
Hurley- BENCH: Scharenberg, McInnes

MID: Danger, Sloane, Ablett, Pendles, Bont, Yeo, Fyfe, S Selwood- BENCH: Bolton, Jarman, Bayok

RUC: Sandi, Grundy- BENCH: Cameron

FWD: Ryder, Steele, Nank, Dalh, Hanan, Greenwood- BENCH: Eddy, Smith

$120k in the bank and 11 trades left

Was thinking of trading in Rockcliff and out Sandi for another Ruck but just asking if you guys see anything I can do to improve this week!

    SF4 · 07/06/2017 at 13:40

    Trade out Sandi, Swing Nank into the Ruck, swing Yeo up forward and then trade in a Premo MID.

    INPieman · 07/06/2017 at 13:40

    Your really in trouble for trades & rookies onfield or not playing. I'd shelve getting rid of premos & kick start some cash gen. i'd get rid of Jarman or Bayoc for Cousins

    jez_m · 07/06/2017 at 13:44

    It looks like you're really struggling to fill 18 for Round 13. I'd trade Sandi, swing Nank into the rucks and get Tom Lynch into your forwards. I'd also trade Jarman for Cousins.

      Sellars1226 · 07/06/2017 at 14:34

      Cheers guys !

      Sellars1226 · 07/06/2017 at 15:03

      Swung Nani into Ruck and put Sandi on bench which meant Cameron had to go forward causes he's DPP so I traded Cameron and Sandi out and brought in Greene and Strnadica! Good trades?

Kyle · 07/06/2017 at 13:49

Goodafternoon community. Have a bit of a conundrum. I can bring in one of three players this week. The bont, macrae or yeo yo. I have 1 mid spot left and 1 forward spot aswell but very unsure whether to bring in bont this week and a forward next week or vice versa. Would love your thoughts

    Russty_ · 07/06/2017 at 16:40

    Bont and Macrae have pretty much unattainable breakevens and will both lose 20k plus, and Yeo's got his bye so can you wait till next week or is it essential you get someone in this week?

    redherringfc · 07/06/2017 at 17:12

    Macrae and Bont before Yeo. Both have high BE, but Bont was consistently around 130 for 7 rounds and macrae 100 to 110 for 8 rounds before both dropping off a bit. They will be cheaper next week, but not by the amount predicted on SC gold.

    Go the bont and through the V on him. Get Macrae next week.

cashcows · 07/06/2017 at 13:53

13 trades and 48k in the bank.

Adams, Laird, Doc, Robertson, Shaw, Newman (Stewart, Perryman)

Danger, Jelwood, Pendles, Bont, Fyfe, Treloar, Hanners, SSelwood (Barrett, Bolton, Junker)

Martin, Sandi (strnadica)

Macrae, Dahl, Nank, JJK, Hannan, Parsons (Greenwood, Eddy)

Bench cover is my concern prior to trading. I've got the cash for trades but just don't want to get caught out esp. with 7~ trades after this week.

Looking at..
Eddy -> Cousins
Parsons -> 102k player for cash
Newman -> Lynch

Or do i deal with Sandi and FWD line and keep Newman as D6 even with 80BE. Not sure who to trade in that case.

    Boner Contention · 08/06/2017 at 11:26

    Sandi to Ryder ? Keeps a DPP open for the run home.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/06/2017 at 14:11


Not much else around nothing next week.
JS is pretty good.
Will get better won't he? Good by foot just hasn't used it enough so far.
Need to make some cash this week so can bring in macrae next week so at a inflated price probably get Shaz.

Who else is all in?

Already have cousins as part of bye strategy.
Will grab Ryan after his bye possibly for Stewart.

Good thing is swans play Thursday night so get a look at Newman before making any decisions.
If goes alright again will keep a bit longer as a D6.
Avg 90 which is great for a D6.

Most teams r keeping Steele in their fwd line and he has a lower avg than Newman. So me thinks keep for now

if spuds Thursday night activate plan B.

    INPieman · 07/06/2017 at 14:27

    If you already have Cousins Trig there isn't really much else. I think Shaz will get better. He's neat with it. Think his confidence will grow. Agree with you on Newman. I'll keep him until he spuds it or gets dropped again. Or when I can sideways him to Lloyd. I'm looping Newman with Ryan assuming Ryan gets another game

    neil DEMONS DELIGHT · 07/06/2017 at 15:37

    What about young Hibberd Had a slasher on the weekend That's 3 top games on end surely Brad will look at him has DPP as well I think he will be high on everyones radar shortly Cheers

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/06/2017 at 16:15

      Got him been a handy dpp swing

      Surely gets a game soon

        neil DEMONS DELIGHT · 07/06/2017 at 16:26

        pickett the same Trig both hibbo and piks been good dpps. Will stay in the demons delights to the end

SteveyG · 07/06/2017 at 14:21

Thoughts on going Otten, J Stewart and Parson to Docherty, Cousins and Callum Brown? Leaves me with 70k in the bank and 4 off full premo but I feel like its too much risk for not enough reward… I could also get a non-playing rookie (102k) just to get that extra cash in bank (would bump it up to 80k)

    SCdonkey · 07/06/2017 at 20:46

    Depends how much trades you have left. Spending too much cash and trades on Doc. I'd look elsewhere with better value

    Randomcliche2 · 07/06/2017 at 22:59

    Agree with ScDonkey. Hibberd cheaper and not far behind. TJL is good pick as well.

micdidjeri · 07/06/2017 at 14:22

Think i might take a leaf out of Higgo's book, Fyfe to Zorko/JPK or Higgins to Yeo/Mcrae? Will have 18 this week and next week regardless. cheers

    BockChoy · 07/06/2017 at 15:40

    Pimp my Ride… what a great name for a stratagem!

wombatsfc · 07/06/2017 at 14:24

Opinions sought on these options. I can't do both unless I scrap the Manbun Frogprince for Cousins or cunningham
Berry > Docherty
Barrett > Ablett

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/06/2017 at 14:33

    Lock the doc.

    The Ranger · 07/06/2017 at 15:36

    First option. Barret can still earn a bit more cash.

    neil DEMONS DELIGHT · 07/06/2017 at 15:40

    Doc wont let you down

    Boner Contention · 08/06/2017 at 11:29

    Both for sure Wombie.
    The frogprince to a Cousin trade just doesn't seem frightening at all

Squizlet · 07/06/2017 at 14:29

Thoughts on Ablett?

    KrazeeEyezK1lla · 07/06/2017 at 14:53

    bald sook

    BockChoy · 07/06/2017 at 15:39

    Listen to the podcast… there is is detailed discussion on him in there.

    neil DEMONS DELIGHT · 07/06/2017 at 15:44

    All he wants is the cattery and could still be usefull..Danger Selwood Selwood Duncan AND Ablett jnr wow.Still don't think he is a pinch on his old man though

St KFC · 07/06/2017 at 15:21

Koby Stevens. Worth a punt ?

    INPieman · 07/06/2017 at 15:43

    Would see him as a loophole F7 M9 cover type player. Certainly a big POD

Ryan · 07/06/2017 at 15:23

Hey guys thinking of trading roughie to tom lynch (suns). Or should I wait and trade roughie to gawn via dpp. Fwds are
Yeo dahl mccrae higgins nank roughie greenwood and eddy

    Derek · 07/06/2017 at 15:39

    i have my eye on lynch as well. good value

      INPieman · 07/06/2017 at 15:45

      Value for sure. But you have to accept he throws in 29's & 43's. Typical rollercoaster key forward

Ryan · 07/06/2017 at 15:30

Can you still loop hole f emg players during the byes -eg otten as emg mitch hibberd on bench.

    Derek · 07/06/2017 at 15:39


BockChoy · 07/06/2017 at 15:38

All my beautiful long term planning around bye structures, timing when to bring in Gold Coast and Power players and it's all undone because one player got on the sauce then was done drink driving! At least he had the decency to do this prior to Round 12 where I still will have more than 18 players on the park, just will have to accept a rookie score instead.

KrazeeEyezK1lla · 07/06/2017 at 15:42

the captains loophole I understand. the bench loophole, not so much. this week for example, if I have a non playing rookie in DEF on the field, and have the E on both Melican and Scharenberg, can I wait and see what Melican's score is Thursday night and if I like it, just take the E off Scharenberg? Alternatively, if I don't like Melican's score, I can just sub my on field non playing rookie with Scharenberg and take a punt on his score? now that I type it out it makes more sense to me..

    Russty_ · 07/06/2017 at 16:18

    You've almost got it mate, start with the non player onfield with the E on Melican, if you like Melican's score just leave it as is. ..by almost, I mean you don't need to have the E on both bench players.

    If Melican spuds it, just put Scharenberg onfield instead of the non playing guy. That's it.

    Just gotta make sure your non player isn't playing in the same game as Melican or you automatically get his score and can't change it.

Andy · 07/06/2017 at 15:49

Tom Lynch and Docherty or Jack Macrae (after price drop) and Roberton?

    DavidSA · 07/06/2017 at 16:06

    League get Lynch and Roberton
    For rank go 1st option

    redherringfc · 07/06/2017 at 17:16

    Take the extra week to get Docherty and Macrae. Docherty is is the best defender. Macrae is near the best (especially consistent) forward.

Moosehead · 07/06/2017 at 16:00

I am strongly considering Ryder at $492K as one of my forwards and to cover Sandi. I didn't need him last week because I fielded a good side – 1989 points which surprised me.
He is averaging 93 and has had his bye. He does have a high BE of 141 and is tipped to drop 16K. He is their lone ruck and is projected to score 106 against the Bombers this week. I will get Macrae next week to complete my team with 12 trades left. Thoughts on Ryder as a forward?

    DavidSA · 07/06/2017 at 16:05

    With the way forward options are this year Ryder is valid

      Moosehead · 07/06/2017 at 18:15

      Thanks David. I have been through the players list and although there are a couple of other players that are ok, they have their bye next week and I am fielding 17 next week at this stage.

Russty_ · 07/06/2017 at 16:33

Good side David, what are you doing about Sandi?..he's missing again, got bench cover for Nank?

    DavidSA · 07/06/2017 at 16:37

    Got Greenwood and non playing rook Eddy for looping bench
    Got swing sets in Perry/Berry & Bolton/Greenwood

    If I can ride some Lady Luck Sandi for Gawn about R17-18
    Greenwood > a fallen mid/fwd player

      DavidSA · 07/06/2017 at 16:43

      20 playing this round with 16 premo so my 4 rooks I take 2 highest from them, should score well but who to VC or C is killing me for this round.
      Atm got Franklin VC and Kelly C

        Russty_ · 07/06/2017 at 17:01

        Sounds like you've got things covered nicely, I guess Buddy as VC could be a boom or bust, I'm tossing up between the Bont or Kennedy for VC tomorrow.

rory · 07/06/2017 at 17:10

what good forward downgrad options are there other than greenwood and bolton

    Derek · 07/06/2017 at 17:37

    Shaun Mckernan is on bubble, but at $277k is far from Rookie priced. Scores of 97 & 92 and he has looked very impressive. fast and plenty of attack on the ball.

    I guess there were plenty of people snapping up SSelwood last week at $281k, why not McKernan at $277k.

    Otherwise, there is very very little.

    Will all depend on selections.

      SCdonkey · 07/06/2017 at 18:40

      If only he still had the fwd/ruck swing, i would've jumped on him in a heart beat. I think his JS is slim, i don't think he's ever played a full season at all.

    Boner Contention · 08/06/2017 at 11:31

    See if Brown gets named for the Pies

    David C · 08/06/2017 at 16:01

    Brown is playing for Coillingwood and Ainsworth is a chance for Gold Coast.

Jimmy · 07/06/2017 at 18:25

Ainsworth, Docherty and Ryder IN
Sandilands, Burton, Roughead OUT

Will leave me with 13 trades.


    Boner Contention · 08/06/2017 at 11:34

    Looks sensible to me Jimbo.
    A little boring but sensible. PODS like Burton are a little tricky to get this year.

Millsy999 · 07/06/2017 at 18:49

Sandi, McInnes and Fisher out. Murphy, Cousins and Ryan in.

Next week Taranto and Myers/Lloyd out, Bont and rookie in.

Will leave 10 trades left and about 100k in the bank after Rd 13 and team looking like this;

Adams, Laird, Hibberd, Newman, Shaw, Harbrow (Stewart, Ryan)

Danger, Mitchell, JPK, Murphy, Bont, Oliver, Wines, Fyfe (Cousins Myers/Lloyd, Rookie)

Nank, Witts (Strnadica)

Dahl, Macrae, Buddy, Yeo, Greene, Steele (Greenwood, Parsons)

Then look at turning Newman into Lloyd.

Thoughts community?

    Dean · 07/06/2017 at 23:02

    Sounds very good, however you will be able to turn Newman to Loyd also in Round 13 because Newman is $416,000 and Newman should drop to about $440,000

    Then consider moving Fyfe on also if he scores two more games sub 100 around R15

Truger · 07/06/2017 at 20:04

Not sure to trade, Roughy or WHE for Dixon.
Tending towards WHE out. I will have 20 players this weekend

    RussellC · 07/06/2017 at 20:34

    Hmm, tough one. Keep Captain Roughy because he is on the ball occasionally as well as a forward. WHE was saved the other game with a 90 but he is fragile and a seagull.

    Boner Contention · 08/06/2017 at 11:36

    Not absolutely convinced on Dixon. Is the risk worth the trade Truger?

TOPHAWK1 · 07/06/2017 at 20:14

Anyone know the condition Tom Rockliff's shoulder? Is he good to go?

With a BE of 55 and a $591K price tag, I reckon despite the obvious risks, he is a very very tasty shark move upgrade option this week.

Cheers community

    SCdonkey · 07/06/2017 at 20:26

    Tempting but I won't risk it. For some reason I'm seeing Ablett wise when he came back with shoulder issue, not tagging, not tackling and not getting into the pack. He might spend more time up forward.

      TOPHAWK1 · 07/06/2017 at 20:46

      I see your point Donc. It is just that Rocky is so bloody good and he is only 27 years old. His SC average sits at 123 which is up there with Dangerfield.

      Gary Ablett is 33 and his shoulder injury came at the time when he was 3 years older than Rocky is today.

      I am seriously considering taking the risk. He would become my midfield POD if selected.

      Rockliff with youth still in his favour, may just come home hard. He likes doing that.

        SCdonkey · 07/06/2017 at 20:56

        As tempting as his stats states and age. Just remember TH, he has a long history of injury, if your gut is telling you otherwise then go for it.

        Personally I would stay away from him. Learned it the hard way in past few years, thinking he'll come good and stays on the park. Not for me this season.

          TOPHAWK1 · 07/06/2017 at 21:11

          I am going for it if he plays and named in the midfield.

          Brisbane has had it's bye, Rocky has had a rest, the medico's have worked on his shoulder.

          Its boom or bust time.

        wightyswarriors · 08/06/2017 at 17:55

        Sc average is not the thing…total points is

    Pman · 07/06/2017 at 20:47

    Too much of an injury prone Burn Man for my liking. Yes he will get some big scores but he's just as likely to get injured too. I got burnt by him twice in the same season a couple of years ago and promised myself Never Again!

      TOPHAWK1 · 07/06/2017 at 21:00

      I know Pman. When you are going for rank glory, calculated risks have to be taken. I have been burnt by Rockliff in previous seasons as well. This bloke can turn supercharge my side. He is mega capable, and if he does, then that is exciting. If his shoulder hangs out of his socket again in two weeks, then my season will be about leagues.

      Nothing ventured nothing gained.

        Randomcliche2 · 07/06/2017 at 22:57

        Agreed. Top 4 averaging mid from here out if his shoulder hangs together.

    wightyswarriors · 08/06/2017 at 17:53

    I always stick with the proven…he is a proven injury risk

SCdonkey · 07/06/2017 at 20:35

Is that your current team or is it what's gonna be after Rd 13 since you mentioned after the byes you'll have 7 trades left.

If it is your current team, it's looking real good.

rory · 07/06/2017 at 20:41

out: pittard, roughead and marchbank
in: doch, hibberd and any rookie forward or mid
good trade or bad trade
whih rookie, should i go willsmore, already got cousins, greenwood and bolton
your opinions would be great, thanks

bdog · 07/06/2017 at 21:33

will brodie or james cousins im in round 13 bye trouble currently fielding 21 this week and only 16 in round 13?

    Goat · 07/06/2017 at 21:41

    Cousins as a player but he has the 13 bye. Trade out a 13 bye player this week and get both.

TOPHAWK1 · 07/06/2017 at 21:45

It's up for grabs alright. My rank now this year (2373) is lower than at the same time last year (1449), but I feel I have a better shot at pushing for the prize this year.

    Randomcliche2 · 07/06/2017 at 22:53

    I'm interested to know what you think better shot is…. my rank is only a couple of hundred different to you is why. I don't really feel like the prize is even remotely realistic goal for me…. (Full premo + scooter this week, 6 trades left, 15 premos on park this week and 16 next week, pre any rnd 13 trades).

Alan · 07/06/2017 at 22:04

Would you rather get;

Bont in this week and complete my midfield


Get in Jelwood next week and complete my midfield.

Rest of my midfield is Danger, Cripps, Fyfe, Pendels, Treloar, Merrett and Tom Mitchell

This week I have 20 players playing aswell.

triggerfigure · 08/06/2017 at 16:08

Looking at bringing in Lynch for Taranto in the next week to complete my fwds.
Are there any other forwards that I should consider more than Lynch?

My forwards right now are Dahl, Macrae, Nank, Yeo, Steele, Taranto, Parsons, Greenwood.

Adam · 08/06/2017 at 16:48

Still not sure what I should do with Sandilands!

I'm thinking of trading him out for Martin?
Any suggestions?

    wightyswarriors · 08/06/2017 at 17:48

    Put him on the plane to Brisbane !!

    Russty_ · 08/06/2017 at 22:41

    Trade him out for Kreuzer, Martin has to share with Archie now.

Lachlan · 08/06/2017 at 17:46

Gday guys
Here's my team:
Thinking trading our Burton for Hibberd before Burton plays this week, or wait and trade Lloyd in instead?

Doch, Adams, Newman, Burton, Williamson, Melican (Stewart, Hibberd – I know)

Mitchell, Bont, JPK, Beams, Heppell, Fyfe, Greenwood, Lloyd (Danger, Scoota, Wigg)

Martin, Sandi (Preuss – still hoping)

Macrae, Greene, Daulhaus, Lynch (GC), Walker, Bowes, (Nank, Parsons)

Any thoughts would be appreciated, cheers!

wightyswarriors · 08/06/2017 at 17:47

Can go Wallis for certain win, or cousins for fimal two prems in three weeks ?
