SuperCoach RD13: LekDog’s Cheat Sheet

Published by Lekdog on

RD13-Supercoach-Cheat-Sheet

G’day Community and welcome to a JJK-Free Cheat Sheet.

Hey guess what?

We don’t have any rookies to trade down to and I for one don’t go early on them (hopefully no-one sees McInnes in my side). So I’m reminding you to never TRADE IN a rookie early, even if they have the bye and look good like LUKE RYAN, because going EARLY never seems to work out…hopefully you can read my code.

In other news I’ve highlighted some P.O.D’s and ignored a few seemingly obvious options. GAJ for example is a highly traded in player this week however as a GAJ owner I just feel as if bringing him in is way too risky given his inconsistency of late.

Finally thanks to Higgo’s article and of course Fantasy Insider I was able to come 17th in one of my Draftstars matches over the weekend.

Make sure you get around the free Jock Reynolds Academy game between the Demon’s and the Bulldog’s.

As always, I’ll see you in the comments although it took me two hours to get through most of them last week but I still couldn’t get to them all. 

I love you community!

Another good summary of the week Lek….community my trades for the week! Spending big: Taranto – D.Martin. & Marchbank to Dockerty

Darc

Great moves although you are buying them at top dollar, make sure you don't need any spare cash for upgrades next week or the week after.

Mavs17

Thanks Mate good once again!
I agree on Steele and not trading Fyfe. He will come good.

Traded Steele to McRae: leaving my team at

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

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

Martin, Nank (Strnadica)

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

7 trades left, 35k in bank

Hope to swing Nank fwd soon and bring in a ruck.

(Parsons, Eddy)

Thoughts guys?

Northerner

Save your trades for a few weeks if you can.

I feel there's been fewer injuries this year to offset the lower cash generation. Those LTIs will come and you'll need those trades.

Mavs17

Im still not confident Steele will do very much for the rest of the year and he will keep losing money. So ill stick with bringing in McRae for Steele. This is the last trade I was thinking of doing for atleast a couple of weeks.

Russty_

Bottom line is Mavs, he's only had 3 tons out of 12 games and scored shite last week when asked to tag Sloane, is only averaging 75 last 3 game average, so not a bad trade this week but be careful from here on in, Northerner is right in a way, to save your trades but you'll only know if it was correct or not in hindsight, depends on what you're going for too, overall winning the whole thing or just league wins.

If it's League wins only, patience is a virtue that can get you there, running out of trades ends your season suddenly and leaves a bad taste in your mouth, I know I've been there before lol.

Mavs17

Yeah I was going to hold this week, But I feel Steele is just going to keep losing money. I don't plan on making anymore moves until Greenwood and a couple of other rookies make some money, then I will look to finalise my team by swinging Nank Fwd and bringing in another Ruck.

Russty_

Well I believe getting towards the end of the season, that points generation is more important than cash generation, that being said, MaCrae will make you more points than Steele.

Mavs17

I was averaging about 2150 a week before I brought in Danger, Doch and McRae so surely I can only go up from there haha. Greenwood is my last upgrade and then that is it. Sadly I made some crap trades with rookies early on as I didn't do as much research as I should of and then had big Gawn go down with injury.

Tommo09

My team after this weeks trades

Def: Doch, Adams, Laird, Tuohy, Hibberd, Simpson (Stewart, Ryan)
Mid: Danger, Selwood, Bont, TMitch, Kennedy, Pendles, Fyfe, Selwood (Cousins, Bolton, Hibberd)
Ruc: Mumford, Sandi (Strnadica)
Fwd: Macrae, Heeney, Dahl, Lynch, Nank, Hannan (Greenwood, Eddy)

Traded Newman, Steele and Myers to Doch, Ryan and Macrae

9 trades and no cash left

Thoughts on my team???

Russty_

Like the trades and like your side Tommo, very solid, (I'm Jealous) lol, and you still have Stewart, Ryan, Hannan and Greenwood to use for dosh for when you need to upgrade, and only 2 deadwoods on the bench with Eddy and Hibberd, but Hibberd is quite useful as a swinger…..and might even play this week.

Tyruddanaut

I was looking, thinking "he's bloody got full premo already!" But then I saw hannan
Next week you'll make it with 2 simple trades

Tommo09

The problem is… my ranking is 38000
Absolutely shocking

Ben

Lek what are your thoughts on trading fyfe to bont to get 18 bodies on field? Have 13 trades left and 2 away from full promo.

INPieman

Computer says no

Tyruddanaut

I, for one, am absolutely screwed. Fyfe has been reported saying that he has had terrrible chest pains over the last few weeks and I'm not sure whether to drop him and bring in Scooter or hold.

With 6 non-playing on-fielders, I need to use at least two trades this week. At the moment I think I'm going to trade Fyfe but that means I'll only have 4 trades left at full premo
Myers to Lloyd,
Fyfe to Scooter
Roughy to Williams
Next week I might get Liam Jones depending on how he plays but otherwise it's a forward/ruck premo and Ryan and use 2 trades

What are your thoughts on Fyfe downgrade as a trade, community? Is roughy really a must trade? How does Liam Jones look to you?
Thank you

Russty_

I concocted a lengthy reply to your post Tyruddanaut but the powers that be decided to refer it to the administrators for analysis, I'm assuming it's because I used the word….sh*t. Can't be bothered typing all that again sorry.

Tyruddanaut

Sorry to hear that but it's all good

Northerner

With so few trades you don't have the luxury of trading Fyfe IMO

Mavs17

Hold Fyfe, he will come good and finish well.

Rivo

So what about just SPP to Scooter this week?

Tyruddanaut

That works well. SPP has developed nicely and Scooter looks like a keeper

RulesBloke

Absolutely nothing to suggest that fyfe will improve this year and the evidence is that he may miss games immediately after the bye.
Advising people NOT to trade out Fyfe is akin to trolling.

Mavs17

Okay mate whatever you reckon…. proven premo who started the year well.. im just suggesting that people hold there trade on him and wait for one more game after the bye…. no need to act like an asshole…

Cogla13

Trading Fyfe is fine if you have spare trades. He is an underperforming premo in 57% of teams. You create a pod by trading him ou.

Ben

Fellas how many trades do we want left once we reach full promo?

INPieman

30

Ben

Seriously what's a good amount

Russty_

10 to 12 would be great.

Northerner

Joel Smith on the horizon as a def downgrade in maybe a month's time. Listed as 2 weeks with his shoulder. Will no doubt spend a couple in the seconds, but his only quarter in Rd 1 was impressive. He was talked up by the Ds in the pre season.

Dice

4 – 6

Russty_

If Boyd comes back in…and Roughead playing, English will be going back to England.

INPieman

Houli & Westoff! Geez! In the wise words of reverend Lovejoys misses "won't somebody think of the children"

Goat

Priceless

Sabsy

Pretty poor that only new Draftstars players can participate in the Sunday game. How was that allowed to happen? #nothappyjan

Russty_

They have free games Sabsy, it's basically the same as Coachkings , just under a different name.

Sabsy

Sure they do, but with no money up for grabs, so it's just for fun. It would also be nice to be playing against the fine people of this community as we did on CoachKings. #bringbackcoachkingsplayathome

Sassy

Yep, log in and then click the link from jock. Will work, did it last week, albeit not very well.

Sabsy

Not if you've played more than 20 games; quoting Jock himself: "Note: folks who have played over 20 games of Draftstars aren’t eligible to play. A safe place for the community to learn their Daily Fantasy Footy craft!" This was 100% confirmed when I attempted to enter the match, at which point I was presented with a "go away, you've played too many Draftstars games" message. 🙁

I get it, you guys have to pay the bills somehow, and promoting Draftstars might be one way you're doing this (maybe not, I'm only guessing); my beef is that you billed the Draftstars match as a like-for-like replacement for the CoachKings one, and clearly this is not the case (at least this week) because there were no such restrictions for participants in CoachKings. :/

B T

English is horrible. Don't touch him.

Captain Risky

Nick Riewoldt anyone?

Rick Grimes

On the risk v reward matrix he's leaning very much towards the risky side. Could be an inspired choice but only if you have a spare trade up your sleeves. It's a no from me.

Dildor

I've held him for a long time, longer than i expected, hoping it pays off.

Dice

Same Dildor, i'm gonna be so shitty if he fails this week

Rivo

Tough decisions this round.

10 trades and $30k.

Considering the below but not sold on the idea…

Out: Fyfe, SPP & Pickett;
In: Bont, S.Selwood & C.Brown.

Leaves me with 17 on field this week, but 2 players short of full premo.

Mavs17

Hold Fyfe until he plays after the Byes, then re-assess

Rivo

So what about SPP to Scooter this week? Wasted trade?

Mavs17

Really depends on where you see Scooter fitting in your team. I'm having him as my last MID which I don't mind, because if his body holds up he will average 90 or more easy.

Rivo

SPP is currently my 9th mid, and ideally a cash trade up. However I think he has maxed out. Scooter will make more cash and help me get the premo mid Fwd quicker.

Russty_

I'm going SPP to Scooter and Newman to Doch this week, sick of SPP.

JDP

Who provides more value for second half of year

Bont or Yeo ??

Russty_

Hard to say cause Yeo has been good but not in the past and Bont has been good in the past but not so good now, I'd back the Bont to bring home the good scores in the late part of the season.

Rick Grimes

The Bont is a CD darling. He only needs a half decent game to ton up. If he plays really well it's a guaranteed 150.

Dildor

Both are good options depending on if your gooing league or overall rank. Consider that Yeo is up 106,000 from the start of the year and Bont is down 61k. Bont looks like a bargain.

Derek

can't really compare a mid to a forward.

will bont be in the top 8 mids by year end…. no

will yeo be in top 6 forwards by year end….. probably

do i have a congative bias against both…… yes.

Rick Grimes

I'd argue Bont will be top 8.

bUCKET__

Doggies draw looking pretty okay for Bont in the second half of the year I reckon, Rick!

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 cheat sheet LEK
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

Derek

You need 2 defenders, a mid and a ruck. Who do you want for those positions?

Once you know who you want, work out how much they will cost.

Add up the value of your 8 fattest rookies allowing for a bit more cash in the likes of Barrett, Greenwood. See if you have enough cash to make your 4 upgrades allowing for 4 rookies of about $117k.

This will let you work out if you can afford your 4 premiums.

Derek

You might need 9 trades. Getting thin in the cash cows. If you can, will still leave you 5 trades

skdo

Thank You Derek for Your reply
My 2 defenders will be LLYOD, WILLIAMS Mid: Neale and Ruck Goldy

Josh

Macrae or Yeo?

Russty_

I reckon MacRae.

Murray Vance

Yeo. Has 7 more games at Domain.

Derek

Macrae has this annoying habit of starting very slowly but then having a massive second half. Not sure where i can get a quarter by quarter breakdown but i'm sure i'm correct.

One day he will have two massive halves and wooshka

Max

JPK, Dusty or Zorko?

Russty_

Dusty, Zorkonator, JPK

SugarGum

Forwards are Macrae, Dahl, Yeo, Greene, Lynch and Steele. Can go Steele to any other FWD or should I hold? Fielding 17 this week (unless Hibbo gets a gig) as I decided against trading Fyfe to Cotchin. Have 10 trades left and 1 away from full premo which will be Berry to Lloyd next week. Thoughts?

Russty_

Maybe Steele to Buddy or Heeney and get 18 on field and then try to hold off.

SugarGum

i only have space for one upgrade, if I go Steele to Franklin would have to trade Fyfe to the likes of a Parker. If I hold Steele can go Fyfe to Cotch.

Russty_

Yeah ok, but you said you could trade Steele to "any other fwd" so that's what I offered advice on.

Joshua

Yep thanks for the advice, will hold Fyfe and spend the cash on upgrading Steele

Russty_

Why are you answering for Sugargum…Joshua?

Joshuq

Keeps on autocorrecting to my real name for some reason

Joshua

Joshuq now bloody hell, not good at typing haha

Russty_

Lol good one!

Mavs17

Simple trade steele and hold fyfe

Murray Vance

Should I cop the donuts this week by fielding 16 or force the following trades to field 18?

H Greenwood to C Brown
N Fyfe to S Selwood
R Burton to S Docherty

Playing for rank. Leaves me with 9 trades remaining.

Mavs17

Hold fyfe and do not trade greenwood yet..

Derek

if you are playing for Rank you really can't afford 2 donuts.

Fyfe to SSelwood seems ok.

Burton to Docherty is a big spend and if it means having to trade greenwood now, i wouldn't do it. Do you have enough cash to get LLoyd this week?

Lloyd is a very good option, even if you can still get Docherty later. Lloyd has DPP can be a really handy swing with Adams for the rest of the year. (play Adams as a Mid)

Murray Vance

Thx Derek, sound advice. I don't have Adams, 2 players away from full premo but Defense already full and definitely want Docherty, his price seems justified.

Who knew all the good rookies would have Round 13 bye!

Derek

if defense is full, and you don't have adams of docherty….. who do you have ?

Murray Vance

Rance, Howe, Simpson, Hibberd, Shaw (full after adding Docherty)

Derek

fair enough. No Adams or Laird. rest of your team must be good

Dice

If you're less than 3 players from full premo, lock it in. I know greenwood has more to make but can't really wait when playing for rank

Murray Vance

2 away from full premo, agree, don't want to cull Greenwood but can't afford to fall behind. Looks like a go. Cheers, Dice.

L G

who is the better forward upgrade Yeo or Heeney

Rick Grimes

Yep had a good run of home games. Can't be bothered doing the math but I suspect he averages a good 10 points higher at home. Heeney is a gun, but shares that midfield time, so there's a chance he loses points to a resurgent Parker? Couldn't really go wrong with either.

Rick Grimes

Yep=Yeo.

Mavs17

Yeah na, trade steele and keep Fyfe..

TRIGGER HAPPY

Nice one lekydog

Been saying it for a couple of weeks but that iceberg that was off on the horizon is now right in front of us.
Orginally you could see the bit out of the water with the premos in clear view but it was the bit hidden just beneath the waves in the rd 13 rookies that could cause the most damage.
Now the iceberg looms large right in front of us as every decent rookie rookie is bloody rd 13!
Most of us are gonna smash into it, but the planners amongst us will steer clear and sail into clear water shooting up the ranks.
Everyone else will be left floundering in water clinging to a leaky rusty steele sandi-fyfe raft
maybe its time to upgrade to a jet propelled option that may let you Kruez to safety?
God help us that wouldn't be too dusty.

Derek

if you know me you would guess that i planned the byes with accountancy like precision. What let me down has been the mediocre scoring of the on field rookies, a whole bunch of them scoring 50-60ish. Stewart last week was one of the few that did what i was hoping scored 105. nice work. it has been the Myers, Cousins, Butlers, parsons, Scharenberg, SPP, Fisher, Bolton, mcGrath, who have all done ok, as well as can be expected, i was just hoping for a bit more. Its like having 5 Menapoos and a Davis. I had 21 & 22 onfield last two weeks and managed 1742 and 1824, was looking for alot better. oh well. Will have 18 or 19 this week but still included 4 rookies

Dildor

I planned like hell too, to bad Harbrow loves a beer.

Randomcliche2

Same here! 3 premos out last week due to non-bye related issues…. FMSCL!

Russty_

I don't usually plan for Byes Derek, which proves I haven't learned much in 10 years lol, but I've dropped 6000 places in the rankings the last 2 weeks, should be a good one for me this week though with a prediction of 2000+ , fingers crossed.

It's been a funny ole year!

Randomcliche2

And for those who are gunna crash…..I hope your boat has a hardbow… maybe he'll save you!

Crow

Current team is
DEF : Docherty, Adams, Laird, Howe, Shaw, Berry (Stewart, O'Connor)
MID : Rockliff, Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Kelly, Fyfe, Cripps, Martin, Bontempelli (Fisher, Cousins, S.Selwood)
RK : Martin, Nankervis (English)
FWD : Yeo, Dahlhaus, Greene, Steele, Greenwood, Taranto (Parsons, Strnadica)
11 trades
150.4 k
Seeing how ive got Selwood on bench, i was going to go
Fyfe to Bolton
Taranto to Macrae
Parsons to Heeney
Then next week wait for Lloyds price to drop and upgrade either Berry or Stewart to him.
Good idea or is there a better way?

Rick Grimes

Holding Steele. His spud score last week was due to them trying him in a tagging role. He won't be doing that again I suspect. Drop that score out of the mix and he's averaging 90 odd, which as per your Shaw comment, doesn't warrant​a trade. He's my F6 and will be a F7/M9 swing player in a few weeks.

Northerner

Good strategy. I'm looking at Taranto as my swing bench cover and maybe switch him to another premo fwd later in the season and use Wallis for that role.

Dice

Spot on about Steele Rick. I'm wanting to get rid of him this week but due to trades and 18 players I can't – He is one of my least worries keeping Steele

INPieman

Steele is too slow & doesn't have the tank to tag. That experiment didn't last long last week & he was sent to the pine. I'm hoping to shift Steele to a cover/loop player in the coming weeks as well

BrownlowBoy

Are you holding Steele this week Pieman?

Holty

Agreed Rick. I see some comments saying he has only averaged 75 in his last 3 weeks so get rid of him. What they have failed to look at is he averaged 96 in his previous 3 rounds before his tagging role. I am hoping he wont wont have to do anymore heavy tagging roles and will stay my f6 come seasons end. But as you suggested, having him at f7/m9 would be ideal.

Dice

Get those tackles back up to 10 a match, then he'll be right Steele

Mavs17

If it means i get McRAE then i think ill do it. Steele served me well but he definately wont be getting many more 100s

Northerner

Just looking at team posts and on field teams are starting to look so similar. Especially backs and forwards.

e.g. My backs are Doch, Laird, Adams, Hibberd, Howe and Newman (Will become Lloyd next week). Howe would be a slight pod, but rest will be cookie cutter. Similar result if I posted my fwds.

There's some variation in Rucks and Mids, but team convergence is very strong.

I think key differences now will be injuries and what bench cover you have, together with you trade reserves.

Northerner

Do we push for moving back to 22 trades to get greater variation?

……Waiting for the howling to come…….

The Ranger

Nnnnoooooooooooooo!!!!!!!

Derek

The biggest difference I see is the team value. There is a corolation between rank and value. Those who got the right rookies and jumped on Oliver Kelly etc when they were cheaper are at the pointy end.

What is yet to happen is to see if the teams st the top can hang on with very few trades.

I'm usually a holder of trades. Even finished last year with one left, but this year it looks like I'll be down to 4 in a few weeks time once I'm at full premium.

There will be plenty of howling later in year if there are a few key player injuries.

Randomcliche2

24 trades is sooo much harder. Love it. With 30 its a firing range.

Stupid Coach

Great work Lek Dog. Looking forward to seeing the back of the bye rounds. 14 trades and $78,000. Team is as follows:
B: Doc, Shaw, Laird, Lloyd, Hibberd, Newman, Stewart, Scharenberg.
Mid: Danger, Pendles, Treloar, Ward, Fyfe, , Adams, PP, Yeo, Myers, Bolton, Mountford
Ruck: Martin, Goldy, Strndica
Fwd: Dahl, Lynch, Steele, Nank, Hannan, Parsons, Cameron, Greenwood.
Thinking Steele to S Selwood (via DPP) to generate cash and Fyfe to Martin /j Selwood or Zorko. Would also like to trade Myers but not sure who I could bring in.
Any thoughts/advice much appreciated.

Dildor

With only 17 warm bodies and fyfe, myers and cousins having a bye in my mids i need to make a trade. Am considering going Myers -> Ainsworth. This will cost me 30k but gives me the body and need and can keep Fyfe. Ainsworth would be my mid fwd swing for the rest ooof the year hoping he can bail me out if need be, any thoughts?

INPieman

To save a donut it's not a bad ploy. But wait for teams & see if a cheaper option presents

Dildor

Great idea, was jumping the gun a bit probably, will reverse the trade and be smarter when teams are announced. Thanks for keeping me in check, you da real mvp.

Tyruddanaut

Possibly Shai Bolton or a rookie mentioned in the spreadsheet would be efficient

Dildor

As a tiges supporter i've watched Shia very closely even in the VFL, he looks dangerous in periods but has poor disposal efficiency, will be a good player eventually but has a ways to go, don't think he'll remain in the side all year.

INPieman

Any rookie you bring in now is likely to be there round 23. For me if it was Bolton & using a trade vs a donut I'd take the donut. You don't want him anywhere near your field in the run home. Ainsworth if you can afford it is a much better cover option. But it's situational based on each persons team

Winter

Fyfe started the season with 108, 117, 113, 107, 126
Is it worth keeping him to see how he goes for the first few weeks after the bye before we trade him

Holty

Yep. Imo, if you still need to make any upgrades, do them first. Fyfe will be a luxury trade for me if he is still struggling over the next few weeks. Fyfe has been playing sore for close to a month (dont quote me on that) so may be a reason for him under performing of late

INPieman

I think so

Jack

I'm a Scott Selwood upgrade away from full premium coming out of the byes. Bringing in Luke Ryan, Jack Macrae and Elliot Yeo this week for David Swallow, Tim Taranto and Mitch Hannan. I'm left with no cash and 9 trades but all my rookies are getting games so pretty happy with where I've come out after a disappointing start to the year!

INPieman

Great trades Jack. 2 trades to get rid of scooter leaving you with 7 is a good spot to be in

ProTravo

Heard that Goldy might be on the way out for Preuss and that he won't be named to play this weekend.
Anyone heard any whispers on this?

Dildor

Please god no.

INPieman

Haven't heard that one. There is no way Preuss plays in favour of Goldy. It's either both or Pruess plays VFL. Unless Goldy is injured

ProTravo

I hope you're right Pieman. I brought Goldy in when Sandi first went out and I'm not ready to part ways yet.
We will find out when team are names tonight.

INPieman

I don't think Preuss will play again until they have no mathematical chance of playing finals

Goat

Please god yes.

Randomcliche2

Sick, you've still got Preuss or just love others misfortune?

KrazeeEyezK1lla

Eddy to C Brown and bank the 25k? not much gain, but both not playing this week. Eddy doesn't look like playing at all and Brown seems like he'll get some games.

INPieman

Wait till Brown is on the bubble. A trade is not worth 25k unless that makes a spectacular difference to an upgrade

Derek

waste of a trade

KrazeeEyezK1lla

true

KrazeeEyezK1lla

also, thoughts on holding onto Zak Jones this week? I was originally going to trade him out and bring in Lynch from gold coast, but with in form leaping Liam Jones potentially playing on him, Lynch may not get a massive score?

Z Jones could play a fair bit in the guts of what will probably be a pretty contested game. gettable BE of 75 too, so can't see him bleeding much cash, if anything.

INPieman

If someone had of told me in the preseason you'll be worried about bringing a bloke in round 13 because of Liam Jones I would have wet my pants. But your point is valid. He kept Patton quiet last week & he's mobile. I decided to pass on Lynch a few days ago for the same reason. I'd rather play Steele instead. Hold Zak Jones for another week

KrazeeEyezK1lla

think I already made my decision internally, and this helps. holding zak jones

Osei

Hey Guys,
Heeney or Wallis? Can't split em right now, the dogs good fixture makes me want to get Wallis but the fact the swans are starting to get busy makes me want Heeney

Iamme

Heeney

Thomas

What do you think of Rough+SPP+Myers->Yeo+Bont+Ryan?? Most concerned about Yeo. Thanks for any comments!

Dice

Like it

Babatundi

Hey guys, is 4 players from one side too much? Or should i just pick another option from another team, my 4 would be Lloyd, JPK, Buddy, bringing in heeney possibly?

KrazeeEyezK1lla

if they're all scoring 100's consistently, I don't see a problem with it. I've got all 4 of them

Iamme

They are all playing consistently and have all had their bye…. so why not?

H Lee

dusty or bont this week?

KrazeeEyezK1lla

Can see the swans putting a lot of work into trying to restrict Dusty. whether or not it works is another thing

FizzEm

Who's going to finish the season strongest out of selwood or dusty? Or is there another midfielder to consider… zerret as a pod maybe??

Andrew

Who should I trade Sandi to? I'm thinking going a bit left field and going Goldy hopefully Preuss doesn't get back into the 22 (already have Witts).
Thoughts?

INPieman

Ladies & Gentleman my sources are telling me Jack Steele has been DROPPED

Captain Risky

Yes, Hearing the same. That might hasten his departure if team selections confirm it.

Redgumwon
Derek

glad i didn't get him in last week.

Top hawk

Good. I have traded him out this week in any case.

Rick Grimes

Hmmmm, funny how the SC world can change in a space of a few hours. I was 100% hold, now I'm 100% fold. What to do now????

James

"My sources" What afl.com.au? Flog

INPieman

I posed that 3 hours before it was on the AFL site Moron!

James

OK who's your sources big shot?? You've been sprung before about this. Flog

James

AFL posted at 11am

INPieman

This was posted at 10am you peanut! Get a life keyboard warrior

James

5 hours ago minus 5pm would make that midday. c*cksmoker
stop trying to think you have sources

Skinny McThin

Why didn't you just say AFL website instead of 'my sources' it was posted there almost an hour before your comment. Next you'll be taking credit for announcing Lou Richards' death, wanka.

Simmo

Jack Steele has been dropped

INPieman

Pick up your game Kade. I paid good money for you

Simmo

whoops haha

jez_m

With Vickers-Willis injured and Jack Steele seemingly dropped, it looks like I'll be fielding 17 players this week. And that's only if Bolton and Mitch Hibberd both get named.

The question now is, do I bring in Yeo for Steele to compensate for the loss of a premo, or go with my original plan of bringing in Scott Selwood for Myers?

INPieman

It's going to be donut city this week. You won't be alone

jez_m

Yep, certainly won't Pieman. Sometimes even the best laid plans can turn to donkey droppings.

Jimmy

Is it worth trading out Fyfe or Heppell to someone like Bont to avoid a donut? Going for rank. Only 8 trades left after this week if I do make that trade and 3 off full premium with 160k in bank.

Marcus

I would hold

Joshua

Steele to franklin or heeney?

Derek

as part of my effort to get Docherty into my team this week, i am looking at the Fallen Premiums for some value.

Lynch stands out in the forward line, but i'm not a big fan of key position players. Lloyd in defense, but will wait another week for his price fall.

in the midfield there is some chatter about Parker, but the one i'd like to get people's thoughts on is Matt Priddis. Only $478k fallen $115k from his starting price. I had him penciled into my top 8 mids at the start of the year.

Is in only 2.8% of teams.

He was averaging a reasonable 104 up to round 9. Last 3 games before the bye he scored 73, 81, 80. I think the Bye came at the right time for him.

What has caught my eye the most is that WCE play 4 of their next 5 at Home. We all know that WCE are a top 4 team when they play at home. Priddis's scores at home this year have been 110, 107, 120, 106 & 81 (GWS).

WCE away games for the rest of the season, they play 3 out of the 4 at Etihad Stadium where Priddis averages 109.

the only down side to his draw is the last two weeks they play GWS(A) and Crows(H) for our finals.

what do you reckon fellas, thanks fellas….

Keenbutclueless

My gut feel is that he and Sam Mitchell are cannibalising each other's points to a degree. Like you I considered Priddis at the start of the year, but his output was consistently down when NicNat didn't play. Putting a line through blokes with a great track record is fraught with danger, but if I had to make a call I would say he is done from an SC relevance perspective.

Moonsoon

Grab Fyfe as he will finish strongly esp with a fresh Sandi.

Derek

brillent. only problem is that i'm one of the other 118, 000 who already have him.

Big G

I think Priddis is always a reliable option, but I don't see him putting up huge scores that could be the difference between winning and losing at this stage of the year. Someone like the Bont may be less consistent in playing good games, but when goes big, he goes big.

Derek

i can see him scoring 106 ave for the rest of the year, maybe a bit higher because of the home games. If that gets me Docherty this week, i might take that.

Juzzy

Hi Derek.

I bought in Priddis as a proven, M8, POD 4 weeks ago so I copped his 3 stinky scores and resultant price drop.
My decision to bring him in unfortunately coincided with two concerning points. First rumours of the Eagles being reluctant to renew his contract for next year. Secondly he began attending far fewer centre bounces than usual.

They have recently signed him for next year so, fingers crossed, he gets back to his best soon.

Just some food for thought. Good luck.

Wattsieesq

Hey Derek, Priddis just resigned with WC so hopefully that is a weight off his shoulders. The concerning thing about Priddis is that his tackle numbers are down and he's not getting the pill as much due to being used up forward more this year. I'd back him in with 7 of the last 11 being at Domain but I'd want to see some form before bringing him in.

Holty

Well everything i said about steele i take back. He has been dropped so trade away. Lol

Bottom

Powell pepper -> macrae and then swing him forward next week

Or since powell pepper has a fairly low break even and port are vsing brisbane should i hold another week

jez_m

I'd probably grab Macrae. Powell-Pepper should go well against Brisbane but now is the time to be upgrading rookies to premium players.

James Sykes

So I have the ability to go Fyfe to Ablett this week.

For some reason I am actually considering it.

Could someone please talk me out of this………..

Cheers

Derek

Fyfe is still the 21st highest ranked player in Supercoach. Even though he has only reached 100+ on 6/12 games, he has also had a 99, 99 & 98. (only 3 sub 98 scores).

it will cost you $114k to trade up, hard earned cash.

jez_m

In a year where cash is hard to come by, do you really want to spend 100K+ on a sideways trade?

James Sykes

Thanks guys.

With a bit of trading magic I have been able to get Gaz and still keep Fyfe.

EVW, Barret and Berry into L Ryan, S Bolton and Gazza.

Dont normally like to trade into a bye player but what ya gunna do!

Joshua

Franklin or Heeney for Steele?

Iamme

Tough one, Heeneys in red hot form but Buddys got a lot of history on his side…. maybe toss a coin. I traded in both as Steel dropped and WHE got the bye.

NickMacMan

heeney

Derek

heeney has plenty of competition for his midfield role.

Mills will be getting more time once Mcveigh gets back, paply was in the guts last week, Jack is in there, Lloyd, Jones…

Buddy IS the swans forward line.

iLoveNMFC

Rocky or Selwood?

Derek

Selwood for me.

Rocky had his arm ripped out of its socket a few weeks ago.

The Ranger

Selwood is the safer option but Rocky does like the back half of the season…

Iconic

Is it worth going: A. Sandilands >> T. Lynch (GCS) via T. Nankervis?

NickMacMan

I was considering the exact same trade so curious as to what other people think

Derek

that is about as sideways as it gets.

except for having an extra player this week, i'm not sure what that trade achieves. sandi and lynch will score very similar for the rest of the year.

you take away your ruck backup

waste of a trade

Iconic

Plan was never to keep Sandy though – will trade Nankervis for premium ruck sooner or later…

jez_m

Yes for mine.

Alby

did that last week
