have scored 1805 and 1900 in the first 2 byes, i am ranked 1300th overall and only have 17 scoring players this round (16 premium + tom stewart). should i trade to get an 18th scoring player. i have mutimer/pickett but doubt either will get a game.

i plan on being full premium by trading in jake lloyd for stewart next round..

what to do?

jez_m

Depends on whether you're playing for overall ranking or leagues. If you're going for ranking, you really need 18 players playing across all bye rounds. If you're just going for league play, I'd hold your trades and just play the 17 players you have.

Joshua

Fyfe to Oliver will leave me with 17,800 in bank.
Next week will be hoping Parsons and Berry generate enough cash so I can trade in Callum Brown and Lloyd. Should I trade in Cotchin instead this week so it's a sure thing or hope Parsons and Berry generate at least 20k between them? (This is all assuming Lloyd drops to 410kish)

lazza

I'm waiting 2 weeks for Lloyd …. his price will drop significantly.

Hazey

Do we know the BE for Lloyd?

BlueNath

BE is 162. Will be close to $405k after this week!

Wedge

As soon as that 4 rolls out of his scores his b/e will be really low provided he scores close to his average this week. Next week he needs to be snaffled

Rivo

Down to 10 trades, $30k and only looking to field 16 this week. Trade or not?

D: Doc, Laird, Simpson, Rance, Shaw, Hibberd (Scharenbeg, Ryan);
M: Danger, Sloane, Pendles, JPK, Hanners, Treloar, Fyfe, M.Crouch (SPP, Pickett, Cousins);
R: Martin, Nank (Strnadica);
F: Dahl, Buddy, Lynch, Heeney, Greenwood, Bolton (Parsons, Eddy).

Prefer to hold Fyfe and waiting on Gawn/another Ruck option to open the fed swing back up. Any ideas?

jez_m

Depends if you're going for overall rank or leagues. Overall rank = trade for 18 players, league wins = hold

Creek465

Thoughts on goldy?

Rivo

Creek465, who would you suggest gets traded out for Goldy?

Harry

What to do with Sandi and Fyfe

Touk tuk

Both out for me. In comes ryder and oliver

Danners

Wield the axe

Andy

Buy Jelwood this round or Neale/ Pendles next week?

jez_m

Won't see Selwood this cheap again for a while. If you want him, this is the week to do it.

Bradk

Hows my team looking wuth 8 trades left?

Docherty, Laird, Adams, hibberd, shaw, newman (, ryan, mcinnes) – possibility of looping newman and ryan.

Dangerfield, Rockliff, TMitchell, Ablett, Merrett, pendles, bontempelli, treloar (bolton, pickett, cousins)

Martin, Nankervis (strdnca)

Yeo, macrae, heeney, dahlhouse, steele, greenwood (parsons, eddy)

Eventually greenwood (and a rookie) will become gawn, with nank shifted fwd.

Steele will go when/if he doesnt average enough.

I like the idea of possbly keeping newman and ryan loop in defense, but think newman is a keeper.

Thoughts?

ProTravo

Newman would be out for Lloyd next week if it were me.
Team looks good.

Smote

Impressed with your team Bradk. Understand if you cannot be bothered replying, but out of interest how many premos did you have from Rd 1 that are still there?
Cheers
Smote.

Harry

Sandi to T. Lynch Ryder to forward line or wait for Gawn

INPieman

Unless your willing to pay top dollar Gawn wont be giving you service for at least 2-3 weeks. Factor that in to total points till seasons end

jez_m

Some significant rookie news – Ed Vickers-Willis is going to miss 8 weeks with a PCL injury. Just another curve ball which might prevent some people from fielding 18 players this weekend.

Harley

Well this is shit news. I only held him last week so he could fill this last bye for me. Hope hibberd replaces him then.

hedski

Add to that Darcy Cameron and Tim Smith both won't be seen for rest of the year jez

jez_m

Just adding to the disappointing year we've had rookie-wise, Hedski.

Team Flog

where did you hear that

jez_m

North Melbourne announced it this afternoon – https://twitter.com/NMFCOfficial/status/874518772

DavidSA

Fyfe > Bont
Shiel > Scooter
JJ > Roberton

Or

Fyfe > Heeney
Shiel > Scooter
JJ > Doch

I'm full premo before these trades and going balls to the wall correctives now and to also field 19 for last bye
Thank you

INPieman

I can already smell the burns in 6 weeks Dave. Burn the 3 trades & learn your lesson later in the season. If you must do it go the one with Doch, He's a must have one way or another

Hawks

Heeney & Docherty for mine

DavidSA

Tbh my whole season has been a burn. Nothing to lose now and will be happy to gout in a blaze than to fade away

Joshua

Fyfe is going to Oliver unless Eddy or Hibberd get a game as I need to field 18.

remrafem

Petracca to Heeney or Franklin? Already have Yeo, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Nankervis, and Steele.

Tommo09

Trading Myers Steele and Newman to Doch Macrae and Ryan (even though he isn't playing)

Will leave me with 9 trades and no cash

hawks

Like it

INPieman

Adding 2 top 3 position players & a rookie with upside is good work Tommo. Ross praised Luke Ryan in his presser which doesn't guarantee ongoing selection, but has a small amount of promise. But I like those trades

boner contention

go go go

Team Flog

you know what's weird. Laird and Adams have almost been a mimic of each other this year. both averaging 106.67. that's ironic

wightyswarriors

Adams cost me a win this week….

Wedge

I shit you not but four weeks ago they both averaged exactly 111 and that round they both scored 110. Weird

randomcliche

It's ironic that it doesn't matter how much preseason research you did, they were priced similar, both popular and if you picked one over the other it didn't matter. Ironic enough for me. Don't worry about the haters.

Joshua

Thanks for the mention Jock!

Jim_bob321

Hey community, what do u think of these two options?
Option 1:
SPP – Bolton
Taranto – Heeney
Leaves me with 100k in bank
OR
Option 2:
SPP – Ablett
Taranto – Bolton
Leaves me with 4k in bank

Thanks community

Northerner

I don't think Bolton is worth his price. Comes down to how many you have on field. Taranto not dropping in price. If you don't have McRae you can wait a week for him and bring in Brown or Ryan next week to generate the cash. SPP is warm body.

You'd be better going Taranto to Scooter if you need the extra to field 18. And save one trade.

Jim_bob321

I've got more than 18 this round

Skankunt32

option 1

iLoveNMFC

Jimmmyyy!

B.T

Taranto>Stef.Martin (via Nank)
Myers>Ryan (Via Hibberd, NM)
Fyfe>Jelwood/Zerrett/JPK/Yeo

These trades will help get me to 18 on field.
Early on Ryan but I need someone to downgrade to and at least he should be a warm body for a few weeks, post bye.

Jim_bob321

Jelwood is a bargain right now

Stavros

Hey community,
Regardless of byes, who are the best two options out of Oliver, Neale , Merrett, Zorko, Cotch and Ebert?

Finnius123

Merrett and Neale/Zorko. If bringing in one this week go Zorko – byes must be considered

Osei

Hey lads, do we reckon Clayton Oliver can keep up this form for the year?

Hawks

Yes, his disposals are very clean, which is why his team-mates like the ball in his hands.

Derek

Gawn will be back very very soon

Joshua

Actually you know what, stuff Oliver! Fyfe-Cotchin for the win, saves me some much needed cash for Lloyd upgrade next week and would make Crouching one proud!

Joshua

Pimping my time and POD'ing my time at the same time!

Joshua

*team lol

boner contention

time actually works

Petey

Cotch or Oliver

Joshua

I would go oliver but i personally need to save cash in case Lloyd overperforms and berry or Parsons spuds it so im going with cotchin. Both good ins i believe

Tiny Tim

hi sorry to be a pain but im looking for a defender and footy wire b/e dont seem to be updated. anyone know Doch / simpson / loyds breakevens? thanks in advance

Joshua

Lloyd 162 I heard on here, not sure of the other two as I'm having same problem

The Ranger

Try tooserious.net

Wedge

Doc 87. Simpson 94

Joshua

Chances of Hibberd or Eddy getting a game this week?

Juzzy

Hibberd a decent chance.

Eddy would be entirely suprising.

boner contention

not high

Juzzy

Open letter to Brad Scott ….

Please Brad, if you can see your way clear to name Hibberd and/or Mountford this week I will happily donate a few bucks to the "get Kelly and Martin" fund.

Regards.

Joshua

Seconded but give the Blues Kelly and I'll put some money towards Martin.

Smote

Kelly to the Blues has to be the best 4 words I could hope to read after stuffing up another year of SC.

Steve

which mid should i trade in that's playing this week? Is ablett too risky?

skdo

J.Selwood lock at his price and high ceiling
Zorko for pod rarely drops under 100 and scores well without alot of Disposals and kicks many goals

Russty_

Ablett had 10 tackles so it looks like he might be over his sore shoulder.

Northerner

If he stays fit, it's a risk not having him. I got him after his 210 for that reason. As he hurt his shoulder at the end of that game (wish I'd known it was an issue) he then had a couple of quiet weeks. His tackles last weekend suggest he's over that, but how solid that shoulder is to withstand another impact in the wrong spot who knows. This is the week to get him if you are going to. If he goes big again his price will run away from you.

I'd say Jelwood is a good alternative. Similar price and breakeven. Not quite as much upside, but you won't miss that many points relative to Ablett and Jelwood more resilient to any injury – or head knock as we saw last game!

Good luck with your call.

BlueNath

Any news on Sandiballs post bye? I'm holding him until Gawn bottoms out (hopefully a virtual straight swap) but it would be nice if he actually plays

Creek465

Tarranto to goldy via nank
What do people think on goldy?

skdo

Goldy Just had his bye should be freash and without Pruess he could be in the top 3 ruckman on the run home

Creek465

Low percdntage of teams, im backin him in

skdo

Hello community unsure what to do this week 4 away from Semi Premo but have plenty of rookies and cash left. Fielding 19 this week although alot are rookies. So, what should i do this week i want to use up all three of my trades thanks community. Love the Podcast Fellas.
DEF: Laird, Doc, Adams, Hibberd, Newman, Berry (Stewart, Hibberd(NTH)
MID: Danger, Titch, Pendles, Fyfe, Treloar, JPK, Rocky, Barret (SPP, Lloyd, Cousins)
RUCK: Martin, Nank (Strandica)
FOR: Yeo, McRae, Dalh, Buddy, Stevens Greenwood (Hannan, Parsons)

14 Trades, $223,900 in the Bank

I.e. Any comments appreciated

Mavs17

Any help would be appreciated.
Thinking of getting rid of Steele this week for a more consistant FWD or fallen premo.
Or should i swin nank fwd and bring in a Ruck?
Or lastly just hold this week.

Team is:

Laird, Docherty, Adams
Roberton, Hibberd, Tuohy
(Ryan, Hibberd)

Dangerfield, Martin, Pendlebury
Oliver, Kennedy, Zorko
Fyfe, Selwood
(Fisher, Cousins, Brown)

Martin, Nankervis (Strnadica)

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

8 trades left, 85,000 in bank

1 off full premo in my eyes with Greenwood on field.

Jim_bob321

Mate don't even bother wasting a trade this round
Potentially do something with Zac Fisher but other than that it is a good team

cobey

steele to macrae

Defying_Madness

I like it

boner contention

Nank fwd, get in a ruck

Mavs17

I traded Steele for Mcrae, i plan on swinging Nank fwd once Greenwood has fattened up in a couple more weeks, then bring in a ruck

Russty_

Good call Mavs, you need MacRae, don't need a ruck right now, no offence Boner.

GuruRaviSmith

How are you going to get a premo f6 or ruck after swapping steele for McCrae? You'll only have about 30k and greenwood is your best cash calf atmo.
Fyfe and maybe scooter will struggle to be top 20 mids for rest of the year probably better to trade Fyfe to McCrae and get the extra points this week and trade steele next week

Mavs17

Na i have faith in Fyfe. He started the year well and end it well also.

Jim_bob321

Ended up going Taranto – Scooter

Jose

2 weeks ago?

Jim_bob321

This round bud

TOPHAWK1

Anyone contemplating holding their trades this week?

No rookie downgrade options at this point.

Perhaps let your playing lambs fatten up this week.

Discipline!

Russty_

I can't do it Tophawk, I went Newman to Doch and SPP to Scooter. Newman's been ok but Doch needed to come in to complete my backline.

hedski

Yeah holding pending team selections, should have 19 playing if Bolton gets a gig.

Swans2012

Would love to but I'm going to be manufacturing at least 1 trade to get 18 on the park with thanks to bloody harbrow and evw…..

The Ranger

No way Jose!
Roughead – Yeo and Taranto – Macrae for me this week BANG BANG!

Harry H

I'm holding Hawk. Next week is Berry/Stewart to Lloyd/Ryan

bdog

Should i trade out JJ down to Ryan for cap space or is it worth holding also I only have 8 trades left?i

Top Gun

Keep JJ and get a full team

bdog

if you count newman i am full premo over the whole ground once bring Lloyd in for Stewart next week

SCdonkey

I'm 1 (maybe 2 or 3) premo/keepers away. Really need to get The Doc in this week. Thinking of Fyfe and Greenwood to The Doc and Selwood.

280k in the bank and 10 trades left
Def
Laird, Simmo, Lloyd, Hibberd, Shaw and Perryman

Mid
Danger, Dusty, Pendle, Hanners,
Macrae, Crouch, Priddis and Fyfe

Ruck
Mummy and Witts

Fwd
JJK, Yeo, Dahl, Buddy, Nank and Lynch

Bringing in The Doc will complete my backline, though getting rid of Fyfe for Selwood will be 1 short of completing my mid. The upside is that I finally have The Doc and Selwood will generate in cash and may upgrade to a premo further down the track or may be a good cover in M9.

Appreciate any opinions, advice or criticisms.

TigerNut

This bullshit mate. Go with my advice and get a higher averaging on field player for Perryman. Plan is to always make structures stringer. Fyfe is playing hurt. I have him and there is no reason to get rid of him now

Defying_Madness

Any help is appreciated.
Looking to try get Doch in my team soon but there is no clean way for me to do so with the limited downgrade options, so I am considering holding.
Playing for rank currently so having to field Parsons and Bolton in my best 18 is kind of a problem.
Looking at holding Witts and eventually swapping him to Gawn once his price drops. Plan on swinging Nank back into the forward line whenever I decide to bring in a ruckman.
Apart from Fyfe and Shaw I am happy with my team but I think I have to hold them at this point with my limited trades.

Here is my team
D: Laird, Adams, Shaw, Hibberd, Rance, Berry (Stewart, Scharenberg)
M: Titch, Danger, Merret, Pendles, Treloar, JPK, Hanners, Fyfe (SPP, Barret, Bolton)
R: Witts, Nank (Strn)
F: Yeo, Macrae, Dahl, Franklin, Heeney, Greenwood (Eddy, Parsons)

Currently sitting on 12 trades, have 2k in the bank and ranked at 2168.

SCdonkey

Fyfe and Shaw is my main worries as well, then Priddis and maybe JJK. You're right there's no clean way of getting The Doc, if I trade Hannan and Greenwood then I'm left with bugger all cash in the bank. But if I downgrade Fyfe to Selwood and Greenwood to The Doc i still have bugger all cash in the bank. But still have Hannan and Selwood generating cash, only need 1 more premo/keeper to go.

Top Gun

Parsons to Brown gives you DPP then Stewart to Ryan and Berry to Doc. Welcome!

SCdonkey

He can't do those trades, he has exactly 18 players this week. he'll be 1 player short.

Defying_Madness

If I do these trades then I only have 16 on field

Wedge

You said you weren't happy with fyfe yeah? I would trade him this week. Good chance that hibberd from north gets a game this week and upgrade either berry/Stewart to doc. That gives you another player this week. You'll have full premo Def and 10 trades. Next week get in bont and brown for spp and Barrett. 8 trades left and full premo mid. Then when gawn is cheapest swing nank forward and you'll probably have some bank and 6 trades to hold for injury/luxuries towards the end of year.

Defying_Madness

I will definitely consider these moves depending on the team lineups this week.

cobey

im afraid to say it but mate the only thing to do is get rid of shaw, if you want doch you can trade berry or stewart down to ryan and then shaw up to doch, i dont think its possible for you to have 18 unless you do that

Derek

Just make sure you have 18 on field this week, that is more important than getting Docherty in this week.

next week you can go Barrett >> Docherty (swing Berry to mid), and SPP to Brown.

This will depend on their prices next week and it might be too close to chance it (Brown might have to be a $102k non-player)

If Hibberd (or any other half decent rookie) is named this week i would trade SPP to Hibberd to make sure you have the cash. Do the maths and see what you think Barrett and docherty's prices will be next week.

Defying_Madness

Trading out Barret and SPP next week doesn't get me close I think since I only have 2k in the bank

Will

What do you guys recon of Docherty as a captaincy option this week?

SCdonkey

Don't you have
Danger, Jelwood, Dusty, Ablett, JPK… etc?

Those types of players has a higher ceiling than The Doc and a better Captain option.

Northerner

But Doch's floor has been so low he's a very safe C option. Use the VC on the high ceiling mid and go safe with Doch on second last game of the round.

SCdonkey

Wouldn't it be safer to go with those players I mentioned as your VC, C option if you have them in your team. They can pump 150+ as for Doc hasn't hit 150+ all season, in Rd 12 was a good option to have as C cause there weren't much other option.

Will

Cheers mate

Shizzer

Thoughts community
Burton otten and roughie out
Doch ryan and beams in

jez_m

I'd go for someone other than Beams. He's been good but still carries and injury risk.

Hothi_FC

Is it too early to trade in Gawn?

SCdonkey

Yeah! I'd wait, might be a straight swap Witts to Gawn in a few weeks.

Northerner

Witts has been outstanding and only improving.

SCdonkey

Agree! Witts has been great all season. Though Gawn has a higher ceiling, you'd want Goldy, Kruezer, Stefan, Mummy and Gawn in your team at some stage

Cr0magn0n

Absolutely it's too early to trade Gawn in. In his last game he only scored 27, he now has a B/E of 211. He is projected to drop $56K after this round alone.

Derek

cash is important and to wait a couple of weeks will save $90k. I think i'll wait, maybe.

I have Docherty, LLoyd & Gawn as my three final upgrades.

Docherty this week, Lloyd bottoms out next week and Gawn will take two weeks to bottom out in price. just have some cows to cull but they are taking forever to fatten up

Dildor

In the exact boat, with only 9 trades left though, starting to sweat.

Derek

i'm down to 11 trades.

Need to bring in Docherty, Gawn and LLoyd need about $1550k

have: Stewart, SPP, butler, Stewart, parsons, scharenberg, berry & greenwood as my cash cows (cousins and picket are duds).

Won't be able to cull them all so will keep greenwood and berry because of their DPP, leaves 6 to cull. estimate that i'll cash the 6 in over the next couple of weeks for about $1350k……… ok…… i see the problem. there goes another trade, Berry or Greenwood to a rookie to make the extra $200k. Down to 4 trades after full premium. sweatin'

INPieman

Are you sleeping better Derek now that Doch is coming in?

Derek

he isn't there yet.

my problem is this week only having 17 currently on field. Bring Docherty in will make it 18, but i don't have enough cash to just one trade.

originally i had calculated that it would be myers and Stewart (essendon) out this week and a rookie and Docherty in. I just did a re-calculation and i'm $16k short.

but Stewart went and scored 100+ so he has precious cash to be made.

i don't have any other non-playing rookies (except for Pickett) who has their bye this week and i need all warm bodies on the ground.

Could trade out the other Stewart (cats) but will need to trade in a rookie who is playing this week?? anyone? Hibberd might save me, maybe Pickett gets another game?

The Ranger

Be surprised if Pickett gets another game Derek, he's not been up to much in the magoos.
Mitch Hibberd might be handy if he gets a game this week..

Derek

if Hibberd gets a game i'll bring him back in for Stewart (cats).

Myers and Stewart OUT.
Hibberd and Docherty IN.

Holy Grail

Need to trade in Cotch over Oliver to be safe for a sure upgrade to Lloyd next week to complete my team, will Cotchin deliver for the remainder of the season at about the same rate as Oliver? Or am I compromising my team?

Northerner

Agreed

Joshua

Sorry I meant to trade Fyfe to, sorry for confusion.

Joshua

Trade Fyfe to Cotch instead of Oliver.

Derek

the point difference is not worth the trade

Cameron

Goldstein and j Sellwood
Or
Martin and martin

Northerner

Latter, but I don't like any ruck other than Kruezer after his job on Mummy.

Finnius123

Option 1. Goldy and Selwood are absolute guns.

matthewspangher

Shaw>HIbbered
Fyfe>Bont
Sandi>mumford

thoughts?

Northerner

All sideways. Nothing else to work on? You'd need to have 15 trades left to be making those trades.

Mummy was beaten well by Kruezer last game. Any ruck that goes big against Mummy is a good indicator they are in form and the body must be feeling strong and able to take knocks without impacting them. Consider Kruezer instead.

Juzzy

1am … bad time to be posting anything anywhere …

Jock and crew I love your podcasts. I work hard and the only time I have is on a Tuesday night when I take the laptop into another room and supercoach. My girl calls out "are you doing supercoach", "Yep" I reply. "Is that Jock guy involved ?" Yep.

The escapism that you have given to this community is immense and should be considered for what it is. For me it is something that makes me smile even when life gets in the way.

ProTravo

Great post Juzzy.

Juzzy

Ta Mate.

Smote

The " real byes " are not between rounds 11-13, they are from mid September to March when I have SC Community Withdrawal Symptoms.

Juzzy

Thank you Jock.

Daniel

Who is a bigger priority to get in this week, Docherty to complete my defence or Bontempelli to complete my mids, can't get either the week after unless i pass on Jake Lloyd as D6/7 Cover

cashcows

Doc 100%. Need him, he's scoring like a mid premo.
Bont's form as of late has been a bit iffy at 97.6avg in last 5.

Top Gun

Doc. Bont is cheap but you could pick him up next week.

Mal

Roberton or go early on Lloyd this week?

Not totally sold on roberton and he'll go down in value this week as well.

Already have doch, Adams, Hibberd and laird and need to trade otten this week.

smart as s

im getting lloyd early and will be watching the sheep doing the same next week if no other dramas.

KrazeeEyezK1lla

How is everybody going with fielding 18 decent players this week? A few weeks ago I was looking at 15 or 16 for this round, but I managed to trade and get myself up to having 19 available to choose from

Derek

i'll be making one trade this week. but that will leave me with the minimum 18 on field.

ProTravo

Yeah this is going to be the hardest bye round for me, fielding 18 if Bolton, Fisher and Parsons are all playing.

Ja191

I've managed 21 (if hibberd nm plays 22) somehow, had 16 in r11 though

TOPHAWK1

Hi Community,

I have a clear choice this week.

1- Save all three trades as I will still have 18 warm bodies on the field. (Includes Bolton and JJK mind you……….both no certainties to play) Not pulling the trade lever would mean I still have 13 trades going into the last 10 rounds.

2- Use all three trades this week and PUT A BROOM through the joint to get rid of the DEAD WOOD.

Trade 1- Andy Otten down to Luke Ryan. (Will be on the bubble after his bye this week and Otten is fully cooked)
Trade 2- Heath Shaw to Jake Lloyd. (Just bite the bullet here and pay 15 to 20 K more to get him now instead of next week)
Trade 3- Nat Fyfe to Dustin Martin.

These three trades would still leave me with $180K in the kitty and I can then start looking to offload the likes of SPP, Berry, Tom Stewart etc thereafter. By making these three trades my side looks like a breath of fresh air and a lot stronger IMO.

The other temporary downside is that I will not be full premo going into round 14. It would mean I would be full premo by either round 15 or16 at the very latest. I reckon there would be many other coaches in that same boat due to the lack of quality rooks this year.

Its just a matter of whether 10 trades will be enough to get me through the rest of the season. What is everyone else contemplating?
Cheers

Derek

i would do Otten to Ryan this week. back to having only 2 trades per week after this week, so you might as well get that one done and bank the cash.

Shaw to Lloyd is a waste. there won't be much difference between their scores, certainly not enough to do the trade. at the least you can hold that one for another week and save some cash.

Fyfe to martin would only be if fyfe is carrying an injury or your midfield already has 8 premiums. Otherwise i'd be looking at using the Otten cash to upgrade SPP to martin

TOPHAWK1

Thanks Derek. Will have a good look at that. Cheers

SCdonkey

Fyfe has been carrying sore sternum(breastbone) in the last few weeks. Sandi confirmed, I'm now wondering whether I hold since he has a week off and could be fit when he comes back. Might have to pulled the trigger on Shaw instead.

Beezneez

You could do Otten to Lloyd this week for about $64K and next week the same trade will cost you about $26K. A better option than trading H Shaw imo. For what it's worth, I'm doing 3 trades this week to get 3 warm bodies from Otten, WHE and Fyfe (for Beams). as I have only 14 on field. This will leave me with 10 trades and am looking at full premo in round 15 and I am okay with that.

Swans2012

Unless it's to avoid donuts I'd hold the shaw and Fyfe trades, feels like a double sideways. Otten to Ryan seems reasonable although involves trusting Ross, but if it allows a one up one down this week would make sense.

Top Gun

Might be a sideways trade but no better time to get rid of Shaw when he has an average of 88.

Swans2012

Isnt that the worst time to get rid of him after he's shed all his cash? Can't see him getting worse and 88 as a d6 isn't fatal. i think I'm painting the fence this week and bringing in McGovern at d7 rather than sidewaysing Fyfe or shaw…..I can understand the appeal though

KrazeeEyezK1lla

Contemplating bringing in Lynch (gold coast) for Zak Jones this week. would leave me with the following team when regular rounds resume. should have 19 to choose from this week.

DEF: Doch, Laird, Adams, Hibberd, Lloyd, Newman (Melican, Scharenberg)
MID: Danger, JSelwood, Pendles, Titch, Rockliff, Bont, JPK, SSelwood (SPP, Cousins, Delucca Cardillo)
RUCK: Grundy, Nank (Strndica)
FWD: Yeo, Dahl, Buddy, Heeney, Lynch, Greenwood (Eddy, Parsons)

this leaves me with only 600 bucks in the kitty, and 10 trades left. I think Melican and Scharenberg have some money to make, and like the idea of Melican perhaps being my D7. can see him continuing to get games. one of them has to go when Luke Ryan is on the bubble next week though. need the extra cash going forward.

SSelwood will stay indefinitely as long as he keeps up his scoring. could be valued up around 450k before we know it. SPP may have to be an M9 cover.

Lack of cash isn't ideal really, but open to suggestions and opinions.

thanks in advance

Derek

Lynch is a good option. Not a fan of the Key forwards, but the Suns are a chance to play finals, they have a great run home and Ablett is in good form which will help Lynch.

INPieman

Don't get attached to Scooter Krazee. One poor score & his price will stall for weeks. Have an immediate exit strategy if that happens. Perhaps take another price rise from Melican & move him to Ryan next week to free up some cash. Too early to get rid of Schrenberg

KrazeeEyezK1lla

yeah Melican with a low BE this week so I'm thinking I'll bank the price increase and palm him off next week for Luke Ryan.

I guess the plan with Scooter can be to wait until he has a crap score, and then maybe look to downgrade him and upgrade SPP? Not exactly sure just yet really.

INPieman

SPP to Brown if he reaches his bubble is an option. The money from SPP & Melican should be able to get decent upgrades for Scooter & Greenwood. You should be eyeing off Greenwood to Max Gawn via Nank DPP

KrazeeEyezK1lla

hmm. some good food for thought there. will copy and paste this to my notes! thanks m8

INPieman

No worries

Ja191

vc/c? out of ablett, dusty, danger, bont, smurph

SCdonkey

A bit early, since Danger is playing on Thursday, you'd want to put VC on him. C I'd go with Dusty or Ablett

INPieman

Go have a look at Danger's last 3 scores at Domain Stadium & thank me later

KrazeeEyezK1lla

for those who are research challenged(lazy), please enlighten us!

Kyle

How are everyones midfields looking coming up to the end of the byes?

Mine is looking pretty strong now with the only concern being fyfe but if he can acerage 100-105 il be happy.

Danger jelwood rockliff zerrett hanners bont pendles and fyfe.

Smote

Hold on Dusty….I heard he was thinking of having a man-bun implant which could affect his scoring.

Joshua

Praying Hibberd gets a game so i'm not tempted to trade Fyfe.

INPieman

Brad Scott has been my nemeses this year. Fast becoming Ross 2.0. Don't count on anything with him. He was going to find a place for Preuss 2 months ago

Oscar

Hey guys
are selwood,zorko ,merrett and neale solid picks or should i give up Parsons instead of D.Lloyd and get some one like Martin or Rockliff?

KrazeeEyezK1lla

all 6 of those premo mids you mentioned are solid picks, imo.

INPieman

Zorko the Magnificent has been exactly that. If I can find a spot for him at some point I'm keen

KrazeeEyezK1lla

if only he still had that dual position status

INPieman

Lock of the century if he did Krazee. Even mid only he's rock solid & has a massive ceiling

Lukey

Wallis, Greene, Yeo or Heeney?
I already have 3 dogs (Bont,Dahl and Mac) and 3 swans (Bud, JPK and Lloyd)

Ja191

i'd say yeo followed by Greene/heeney. Don't really see henney going big every week + yeo has a lot of home games coming up

Simo

Do I trade or keep Cal Ward? Had him all year, avg 89, bye this week, and driving me freaking nuts!

Ja191

you've kept him this long, on the back of a season best score you've gotta back him in for atleast a few more I would think

Cam_H

I can see Ja191's point about sticking with him.
If you've not got Scott Selwood you might consider getting him in for Callan Ward for a few weeks and then upgrade to a $550K midfielder if Scott Selwood's price tapers off. Just a thought.

Joe T

Locked in SPP to Selwood and WHE to Macrae this week. With the news on EVW and the benefit of having 3 trades this week, should I downgrade him to Luke Ryan this week or wait till he's actually named next week?

Bringing him in now means I can use 2 trades next week, but also means trusting Lyon to pick him. If there's any other worthwhile rookies to bring in this week I'm happy to hear them

jez_m

I'd wait until teams drop on Thursday. There's every chance Hibberd comes in to replace EVW.

LazyCoach

What are Fraser McInnes' chances of getting a game this week?

Simo

Zilcho. He's back on the rookie list

INPieman

Good chance for a game this week in the WAFL

INPieman

So Fyfe traders I'm interested to know are you getting rid of him to avoid a donut or you've had enough?

ProTravo

Traded him out last week for Rocky.
To answer your question both.

SCdonkey

Mainly had enough, also looking at better scoring this week. Trading Fyfe and Greenwood for Doc and Selwood, assuming Bolton and Hannan only scores sub 50 will be out of best 18 scores.

INPieman

Going early on Greenwood Donk that's aggressive. Still has a BE of 1. Fyfe to Doc sounds good to me

SCdonkey

I've been aggressive all season with my rookies, even with Captain choices. Hopefully in this 2nd half of season I'll be more wise of picking my captaincy.

Trading Greenwood will allow me to get Selwood as a back up for an upgrade later on for a fallen premo. With him in my team may give me better scoring, has plenty of cash to be made and a better JS.

INPieman

It's one thing to be aggressive but I'm not sold on that one Donk. Going from a rook with a BE of 1 to a mid pricer who's gone up 70k with a plan to move him up again. Geez I don't know mate. I'd prefer you held Greenwood. He's a great rookie with DPP

SCdonkey

Appreciate your opinion INP, thank you. I'm not looking to offload Selwood right away, I'll be keeping him so long he keeps scoring well and stay on the park. He'll probably remain as M8 or M9.
I have many DPP to swing on all position for cover.

INPieman

Well if your keeping him as an M9 swing then that's ok. I fear Scooter will have a poor score at some point & his price will stall & take some time to get moving again. I have scooter as a short term place holder

neil Demons Delight

Assume Selwood is Joel then I think you.re on the money Doncs. Scooter that's another story

Rick Grimes

Not trading. Fyfe is life. A week's RnR will sort his woes. I hope everyone jumps off and he comes storming home.

INPieman

Fyfe is on life support. But I'm backing him in. He's a GUN

Russty_

Gotta hope he can turn it around, I'm gonna hold, can't afford to waste a trade now. I'm almost into single figure trades.

Rick Grimes

I'm already there! 9 left after this week's trades. Fyfe should be able to average 100, so worst case I wait another few weeks and if trades are still there pump him up to a Gaz or Jelwood. Time it right and the jump might only be $50k.

Beezneez

Both reasons for me. My three trades this week are to bring in 3 non bye players and to offload Otten, WHE and Fyfe to premos or semi premos. Have been disappointed with Fyfe's scoring since round 6 and it's obvious he is not right. Since round 6 he has had 3 scores in the 90's with a highest score of 104. For $70 – $110K I can get the likes of Beams, Ablett, Selwood and Martin – no-brainer for me.

INPieman

Fair enough Beez. Each to their own on bank & trades remaining. Otten & WHE no brainers to move on

Mavs17

People are forgetting how well Fyfe was playing earlier in the year… strung a few 100s together as well. Freo looked like they needed the Bye last game, I think this will do Fyfe good and he will be ready to come out with a bang after. Would much rather trade out Steele as I don't think he has a high ceiling and looks like he will start losing money.

Traded Steele to McRae and Kept Fyfe

Top Gun

Donut for me …he goes to Bont easy swap.

INPieman

Don't mind that trade TG

BigBuggars

A weeks rest plus Sandi coming back to whack it down his gullet; oh ye of little faith…

neil Demons Delight

good day to you Pies yep had enough of him and my first ever sideward premium trade. Went for the DOC so relying on Scooter as M8 I think he is better than Fyfe for the next 10 weeks that's the key…If I DONT do it I have Williams or Howe as D6 work it out cheers mate good post

Jimmy

Want to get the Bont in this week to field 18 and I'm looking at trading either Fyfe or Heppell. Was originally planning on trading Heppell at his bye but Fyfe i'm concerned about. Thoughts?

VARC

Going early on Lloyd this week despite knowing he will drop another 30k as it will derail my plans if I delay.

Will be going SPP to Lloyd and then next week Stewart to Ryan and Newman to any mid I want.

Thoughts, or should I do something different, team below, 15 trades and 130k

B: Docherty, Laird, Adams, Shaw, Rance, Newman (Berry, Stewart)
M: Danger, Bont, Pendles, Rockliff, Hannebery, Fyfe, SPP, Barrett (Cousins, Hibberd, Bolton)
R: Martin, Sandilands (Strnadica)
F: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Franklin, Nank, Heeney, Greenwood (Parsons, Eddy)

Sam

Hey Jock, just wondering if you are going to have any coach king events at pubs in Geelong?
Cheers

TheGreatBozza

The Tex Factor – 16 trades and 146 K

DEF: Doc, Newman, Stewart, Adams, Laird, Shaw (Howe, Scharenberg)
MID: Danger, Beams, JPK, Bont, S.Selwood, SPP, Fisher, Treloar (Pendles, Fyfe, Cousins)
R: Sandi, Nank, Grundy
FWD: Macrae, Heeny, Dahl, Hannan, Bolton, Taranto (Greenwood, D.Cameron)

I'm sitting at 7000 so I'm only worried about leagues for now. Any ideas on trades I could make?

I'm 5k odd short of Taranto > Yeo so I'm thinking the following

Option 1:
Taranto > Lynch
Cop the donut

Option 2:
Taranto > Lynch
Sandi > Yeo
Still cop a donut as I'll have 7 FWDs available but no swingset in the middle

Option 3:
Taranto > Lynch
Fyfe > Yeo
Avoid the donut

Option 4:
Taranto > Lynch
Sandi > Stef (only ruck I can afford)
Avoid the donut

As I'm playing for leagues I'm tempted to cop a donut this week and hope for the best as I want to give Fyfe another chance while I'm planning on going Sandi > Gawn soon hopefully. My trades for next week will be Stewart > Ryan, Newman > Lloyd unless there is carnage

nankthetank

I like option 4 a lot, not keen on trading Fyfe or getting an extra forward that you cant play. If you don't go 4 go 1 and cop it

Steeeve

Hoping Gawn is back this week. Will be ripe for the picking in a fortnight at which opint I'll be full premo apart from Witts. I can't see any good reason to trade Witts really. Luxury trade in SC finals if anything and even then wouldn't trust any other ruck to better him on a given day.

Kreuzer is on fire but we've never seen this from him before. Can it last? Can he stay uninjured?
Mummy gets injured every year. Do you really want to gamble that this will be the one year he doesn't?
Grundy looks to be hitting his stride but is he worth an upgrade from Witts? They're averaging the same and GCS have a soft run home.
Sauce is same as Grundy.
Goldy has been disappointing and is still a bit pricey for mine.
Martin has the Archie factor.
Ryder is jumping all over people and still not scoring well.

INPieman

Agree with ya Steeeve on Witts. Not fashionable but he gets the job done

Jim_bob321

Do u fellas think Hannan is a hold regardless of bye structure?

Ben

Projected to increase 13K this week so worth holding unless you need to cash in this round

Top Gun

Hold with his low BE

Stompy

Ranked 83rd overall and if i trade out Fyfe I will have 21 players playing. Is it worth trading in Ryan, and only having 20 on the park?
Also who should i trade in for Fyfe, so far D. Martin and Ablett are the frontrunners since i have most of the good mid premiums. (This will be my last premium in the midfield, so it has to be a great one)

The Ranger

How many trades left Stompy?
And congrats on a great year so far mate.

Jake.B

Why not, if you have any plans next week make the trades you need this week to set you up. You'd hate to get to next week and need 3 or 4 trades to do what you wanted to do. That's my plan for this week any next week anyway.

smart as s

how many rookies are you playing this week?

Stinga

Thoughts on mid to bring in for fyfe? Got about 568k to use. Thinking JPK or Bont.

Got Titchell, Pendles, Danger, Jelwood, Dusty, Scooter.

Bells

Fyfe to Ablett. Too risky with the shoulder? He is in ripping form and a good captain option every week atm.
I just can't see Fyfe getting back to 115 plus scores on the regular atm.

Ja191

that's what iv'e gone, backing the little master in

Fearthebeard

Dusty, Selwood, Bont?

Who you lads reckon?

Fearthebeard

Or gaz? Zorko? Rockliff?

Russty_

My order of preference would be…
Selwood…Hardest nut in the AFL and Cats are flying
Dusty………Hard nut and seems to past the bad form
Gaz…………or if he's really over his shoulder, maybe he should be no 1
Zorko………Ball magnet and solid choice
Bont………..out of form as are his team
Rockliff……Still not sure about his durability

Cheers

matthewspangher

best option as D5/6? Got doc, laird, roberton, adams and simpson

safest option lloyed next week? or could hibbered come home stronger

Derek

Lloyd is DPP, that might be important

Big G

What is the bet Gary will be the most traded in player this week?

INPieman

He won't be. The most traded in player isn't playing this week. Luke Ryan. Gary currently 9th

Rooster XXX

Pieman your favourite man in purple Luke Ryan top of the trade in pops!!!

Good to see Ryan & Scharanberg score solidly last week after the unwarranted abuse you copped from a few keyboard warriors prior to the round kicking off!!!

Both look like solid cash cows moving fwd one of them could well end up staying the season as a D7…. I think both these boys will continue to improve in coming weeks with more game time and defined roles within their respective sides.

Both seem to have relatively good JS – although never can tell with Rossy Lyon!!!

INPieman

I don't listen to the keyboard warriors who bagged those picks. I know enough about them. I think both lads are good picks
