SuperCoach RD15: LekDog’s Cheat Sheet

Published by Lekdog on

RD15-Supercoach-Cheat-Sheet

G’day Community,

Welcome to a confusing yet slightly arousing Cheat Sheet.

Straight off the bat, I’ve excluded Beech and Brown (both rookies) from the sheet. I do not expect either of them to be named on Thursday, if they are we can revisit this. You’ll also notice that the Nank is a trade out, we can discuss this in the comments.

The Nank

THIS WEEK’S PODCAST HAS DROPPED – LISTEN HERE

After last week I’m a little disheartened (my team isn’t great and I don’t know how to fix it haha) so I’m here for you, let’s turn those frowns upside down…no that’s a smile not an upside down frown.

Hope you’re all enjoying the Sunday JR Academy Contests – nothing like having the odd poke at some free fantasy footy cash. Enter this week’s Hawks v Pies contest here, and while you’re at it – wrap your hands around the toolchest of the best DFS mob in the business – Fantasy Insider – right here.

Love your work lek! i have to hold nank one more week i think. Trying to save the last half dozen trades i have left. Then i can trade nank for gawn and greenwood for a forward maybe. Probably looking at yeo. Sound plan?

Tempted to go nank to gawn this week tho

Jake.B

I'm i the same boat. I just traded Stewart down and upgrade lynch to Yeo. Next week it's nank to gawn! Greenwood.you could potentionally hold for a bit I rekon!

Northerner

Keep Lynch if you can. Yes he's hurting us, but he's too good a player not to turn it around. He's going to be my F7 and I'll look to loophole him. Those looking for an F7 high ceiling loophole option for finals will have Lynch at ~$370k next week and should be strongly considered at that price.

Bingobangojingojango

Team is full premo, 60k in bank. 6 trades left. Do i upgrade shaw or nank or hold my trades? Love your work Lekdog!

B T

Shaw and Nank are on the edge, but I would be saving those trades for when you really need Them. Give them a few more weeks I reckon.

Moustachio

Up Nank, hold Shaw I reckon

Lazza

Neither are Premos… so you are not at full premo.. get rid of them …

Fisting

Are they on the bench? Not sure how you can be full premo if those two are on field.

joe

If your team has Shaw and Nank in it, the only way it is "full premo" is if they are on the bench.

Gerard

Hey all, need some advice.

Doc, Adams, Laird, Lloyd, Tuohy, Newman (Scharenberg, Ryan)

Danger, Pendles, Bont, Treloar, Hanners, Jelwood, Dusty, Scooter (cousins, Mountford, Hibberd)

Grundy, Nank (Strnadica)

Dahl, Macrae, Heeney, Buddy, GC lynch, Greenwood (Bolton, Brown)

Here are a few options that I have

Downgrade 1 of Scharenberg or Bolton (purely for cash gen)

1) Scooter>Rockliff (leaves me with 200 bucks)

2) Scooter>Yeo (via Greenwood)

3) Scooter>Greene (via Greenwood)

4) Scooter>Stef Martin (via nank)

I have 10 trades left prior to making any.

Thanks all.

B T

Although it is risky as Rocky hasn't been great the last few weeks returning back from injury, with beams out for a month, I'd assume rocky will be getting some extra points.

If he has passed his injury troubles he would be a lock to have a great run home as he can dominate the midfield by himself.

Finnius123

Yeo is a must have

Winter

Not sold on any of the rookies this week

Thoughts on bringing in Witherden, but will be needing to make another downgrade next week

B T

Wait and see if Brown is named.
I would expect the pies to give him a few more weeks as they have to set him up for the future.
Now would be a great time to get some experience into him.

bUCKET__

Witherden would make a great swinging donut, if he wasn't playing!

mickyB

i want to trade nank and have to trade beams. the 3 mids im looking at are dusty, merret and kelly. if i go nank to greene i cant afford dusty. which mid should i get and is there a better forward option than greene? i have dahl, macrae, heeney and yeo

B T

Do you have Jelwood?

MickyB

I think the others are better

But no i dont have him

B T

In 2 weeks, Jelwood will be below 500k and probably the lowest he has been at in years. It will be very hard to pass up on him, allows you to save cash and get a top 8 mid for an absolute bargain.

Daniel Z

Yeah, except for every other year that something similar has happened:

Year Lowest salary
2015 479,200
2013 491,300
2011 453,000
2009 489,200

Apparently, we shouldn't start with Jelwood in odd-numbered years…

Dean

WAIT and bring in Jelwood in 2 or 3 weeks – He will average the same as Merrett between now and season end yet Jelwood will be over $100k cheaper.

If Jelwood does play this week, don't be surprised if he scores below his average due to being heavily concussed – It's very normal for a GUN player who has been concussed to score well below average for a week or two.

Jelwood could quite easily reach $450k or lower if he scores a couple of 80's or lower due to being concussed.

pod

Zerrett is a gun and good value.

The Ranger

Merret just keeps getting it done.

Captain Risky

As a Nank holder, I'm taking this as a potential positive. Doing the opposite of what's on the cheat sheet seems to be working ok so far!

SC_Kev7

Whack!

He's been going alright Lekdog. Who would've predicted Bont's fall after the first 6-7 rounds he had! Been bloody tough this year

Captain Risky

Tongue in cheek really, I do like the cheat sheet, promise! , although an added section 'Lekdogs Leftfielders' might be appropriate some weeks.. Tex, Westhoff, lynch etc… although it's hard to pick a forward line winner this year as we all know!

Truthfully I would trade Nank if I had more trades though. At the moment I have Nank, Buddy and Greenwood at F7 so i am looping one of those 3 each week. Buddy is E this week, if he scores well Nank will be on the bench again..

Seeker

Hi Lekdog,

lovely write up. Although I'm loathe to trade a premo, I'm thinking that you are right about Lynch. He's currently 30th ranked fwd, and is averaging 72 since his bye.

I just don't know who to trade him to. I've got $144600 in the bank and was hoping to finalise my last Def.

Do I actually hold, because I also have JJK who's confirm out and Jelwood who might not play and … oh gods its all to much…

Jake.B

Yep I bit the bullet and traded him to Yeo. Only because I downgraded Stewart and had 147k in the bank beforehand

Jamie

Dumped him 100k ago fro Waite…. Then swapped for Walters a week later. Burnt trades, still better than lynch though. At this point If you can afford it almost worth keeping him as a loop option. Could still drop 140 in a game.

Mattyboy

Is it worth looking at Robbie Gray or Luke Parker to fill my M9 ?

Dega

Not as an m9.
What is your current midfield?

The Ranger

Jeez you must be going ok if you can afford either one of those at M9 Matty!
I prefer my M9 to be a DPP but either of those options are great assuming you can loophole them,

Mattyboy

sorry guys meant m8….

Have got Danger Bont Pendles Jelwood Treloar Fyfe Macrae

B T

I would be more confident in Parker.
He isn't playing majority forward which means he has a better chance to score well every week.
Swans are trying to make the 8 and get as high as they can and they need their leaders to do so, I'd expect Parker to have a huge second half of the season. He has already shown some good form post bye.
He would be the safer option.

pod

Parker improving and not carrying niggling injury.

Leeds17

I think Parker is playing better but not sure the improvement in scoring is real, looks to have just had a couple weeks at a better DE% (well above career DE%) he's shown he can't keep that up, if his disposlal averages had gotten up to last season I would be keen.

Jamie

Get Macrae into your forward line!!

Stirlsy

Nank is tiring and playing sore, and the scores are dropping. Holding this week but he goes out the door next week for Gawn.

Pies and DRAFTSTARS = Stirlsy's return to top 35 this week…..

SC_Kev7

Same plan re: Gawn, Stirlsy. Itching to do it this week but got Barrett/TStew to deal with.

joe

Absolutely. Waiting a week on Gawn may be crucial to affording another trade.

Good luck to Nank, but even if he scores 100 he's out for mine. He's 22, carrying a ruck division for the first time. He's cooked.

Joshua

For Lynch traders, keep in mind he has the Roos this week and with Ablett potentially back, could go back

MickyB

Not with robbie tarrant all australian 2017 😉

Joshua

to his best*

B T

I'm hoping so. Since I've traded him in he has dished out 37 and 39.

Beezneez

Me too. I have Beams to deal with first so will loophole Greenwood as E with Lynch (using Eddy if needed).

pod

Could not believe what I saw last time Lynch played. He looked very ordinary dropping easy marks, kicking like a spud but so late in the season got to hold and pray GAJ plays every game.

Alex

Beams-Bont
Lynch-Greenwood
Leaves me with 3 trades

redherringfc

Are you full premo? Do you have cover for Beams?

3 trades is getting into dangerous territory.

If the answers are yes, then i'd hold on Beams to Bont.

If you go ahead with them then at least consider White instead of Greenwood, saves you 100k. Don't go chasing last weeks points?

Cogla13

Beams to Bont is ok. Then hold, you'll need those trades later.

B T

Cant be left with 3 trades with still such a long way to go.
Wasting them now will be your downfall.

garfield_da_cat

Is it worth trading sloane out and bringing in bont?

Free Kick

No

garfield_da_cat

but teans have figured out that sloane doesn't do well when tagged so he doesn't score well and bont is super cheap?

Free Kick

Sloane is too good to stay down for long.. Trading premiums often comes back to bite, especially when you need trades at the end.. Back Sloane..

MickyB

Im thinking of trading sloane next week. Would do it this week but got beams to worry about. Im gunna get dusty or merret

redherringfc

Yes, for the love of god do it.

That might be the trade that kicks some life back into Sloane.

The Ranger

Only if that's your biggest problem Cat, and if it is you're doing bloody well.

B T

Jeez, that is a tough one. When he isn't tagged he dishes out incredible numbers.
Although when he is tagged and I presume that, that will be the case for the remainder of the year. He dishes out spud scores.

Really depends how many trades you have left.

Tommo09

No

Russty_

Hard to say cause if he gets tagged every week, he becomes a spud….anyone else you could trade out for Bont?

garfield_da_cat

Fyfe?

redherringfc

Yes. Again someone has to do something to get these spuds scoring again.

Take one for the team Garfield, trade them both.

Beezneez

My wife traded Sloane for Ablett and Fyfe for Beams – that went well last week.

Willy

meow ive got a saucer for you garfield

Matt

Somehow I still don't have Docherty, is it worth just doing it now or waiting a couple of weeks and praying he drops a bit in price?

Cogla13

Last game of the season you'll still be waiting. Do it.

Moustachio

Try to wait until he hits 800k

Jake.B

I'm in the same boat. Might hold out another week or two and hope he drops back down to about 620 haha.

INPieman

Sell your family to get him

Dean

Keep waiting mate, soon he'll be $700k+

Rick Grimes

Does White have any JS?

Mike

I was wondering the same thing

INPieman

Hard to say. His scoring history is nothing to get excited about. Smells like another trap to me. But the way this season is going who knows

Cogla13

Get rid of Beams. Downgrade Berry or PP to Witherden if you need cash to get to your preferred target.

Cogla13

Meant to reply to Jess.

Goat

Fyfe to Bont? is this necessary or a luxury trade?
Also – any news on Preuss playing? Is a downgrade to Darcy a good move?

Jess

I traded fyfe last week. The way he's going and cinsidering he's a mid, he's clearly a necessity trade (+10-20 points)

The Ranger

Any premo – premo is a luxury trade I reckon Goat so unless you're all sorted on every other line I'd hold Fyfe.
If you are sorted on every other line then do the trade and wait for the SC gods to smite you. That's what usually happens.

INPieman

That's a luxury trade. You'd want a few in the bank to do it. Fyfe should play this week. Darcy is out for the season & not a good loop option. Go down to Straindick & get another 20k. Brad Scott lied to us about Preuss. Prick

Beady Eye

Think Goat means Sean Darcy, not a Darcy Cameron.

CANONLYUSE20WORDSFML

I went Fyfe>Jelwood when Fyfe had his bye.

Although it hasn't worked out Fyfe has been poor and now with injury news I would recommend you trade him aswell.

As long as you will still have trades left for the run home.

Goat

Thanks guys. It feels right and I have 9 in the bank before this week and don't want to miss the Bon on a low.

Beezneez

Fyfe has been playing injured but may be back this week. Newspaper reported Ross may use him as a forward for his next game. I am thinking if he can get over the injury then he will bounce back. I traded him for Beams to help with the byes – that went well.

cashcows

Lack of trades have limited my options. Switched from overall to league focus now.
6 trades left, 160k in the bank.
Eyeing Gawn next week but still got some issues across the board depending on who you consider premo.
Biggest issue would be Nank and TLynch.

Doc, Adams, Laird, Robertson, Shaw, Newman (Ryan, Perryman)
Danger, Neale, Bont, Pendles, Jelwood, Hanners, Treloar, SSelwood (Bolton, Cousins, Junker)
Martin, Nank
Yeo, Macrae, Dahl, TLynch, Heeney, Greenwood (Hannan, Deluca)

What you guys reckon?

INPieman

Make the 160 count. Hold this week if you can. Nank to Gawn next week looks good. Hopefully the cash left can allow a Selwood exchange in a few weeks

cashcows

thanks for the look in INP. You think TLynch is more of a concern than SSelwood? Or is loading up the engine room better than doing an upgrade on Lynch, and just stick with greenwood as F6?
Wanted greenwood as my mid/fwd bench cover, thoughts?

Free Kick

I'd downgrade Hannan to grab some more cash then Nank to Gawn and S Selwood to Dusty or Zerret.

INPieman

Mids are more important than forwards & Scooter has a dodgy hammy. Jelwood is far more durable. I think anyone with Lynch would love to get rid of him. Me included. But trades are low & he can score. I like Free Kicks suggestion but it would leave you at 3 trades with more than 1/3 of the season to go. Couple of weeks of carnage & your playing players you don't want to. Be very careful using those last 6 bullets. Like I said use the 160 wisely & try to get 2 players you want in your team & leave 4 for carnage & pray. I'm sure the gods are not done with us yet

Jake.B

My team with 8 trades to go & 126k in the bank!

Hurley, Laird, Hibberd, Newman, Shaw & Lloyd (ryan/witherden)

Danger, kelly, merrett, zorko, Pendlebury, Oliver, Bonti & fyfe (fischer/miles/deluca)

Grundy & Nank

Yeo, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Higgins & Greenwood (Parson/Bolton)

Obviously without Docherty who I still could potentially get in but apart from that does it look like a serviceable/solid team?

Jim

That is my defence except I traded Newman to Docherty already

Dougal

Hi community,

Thanks for that cheat sheet Lek!
As a poor soul who's holding both T Nankervis (F5) and T Lynch (F6). Who's the priority to trade? Or hold both?

Looking at upgrading T Stewart down back for D6. Probably to Lloyd (though that would leave me with 5 Swans – Heeney, Franklin, Hanneberry, Newman). Or do I trade Stewart down to a rookie and upgrade that forward line? Or someone cheaper than Lloyd?

Currently $161k in bank and 9 trades. The Stewart to Lloyd leaves me with $55k for the Lynch/Nankervis upgrade (probably not enough).

Thanks in advance community. Decisions, decisions.

Dougal

Forwards are Macrae, Dahlhaus, Heeney, Franklin. Missed Greenwood.
Defence holds Docherty, Laird, Adams, Newman, Shaw.

The Ranger

Get Lloyd Dougal, too much value to miss out on.
Then ditch another rookie this week if you can to raise funds for an upgrade to your fwds next week.

pod

Agree with Ranger.

TOPHAWK1

Grab Lloyd for Stewart. That has to be done now IMO. I agree that $55K in the bank will be enough to do the straight Nank to Gawn switch. (Prob 40K short). I reckon you need to use your second trade this week for a downgrade to a rook like C Brown, M White (bubblies) or Witherden to raise some cash. Then next week you can go Nank to Gawn without a care in the world and still have 6 trades! I reckon having 6 trades going into round 17 is decent. I will only have 5.

Good luck!

TOPHAWK1

*not enough

B T

I have both and I think I'm going to hold both, at least for a little longer. Hoping that they can bounce back into some form.

SirSamuel016

Got one predicament with trades this week in whether I should prioritise upgrading Tom Stewart and wait a week to trade nank or trade nank now and hold stewart for a week. Other trade I'm making this week is barrett to white.

INPieman

Upgrade Stewart. Lots of good defensive options. Nank to Gawn next week looks a nice trade

SirSamuel016

Thanks for the advice INP. With $472k odd to use, I think I'll look at Montagna or someone cheaper like Birchall.

INPieman

If you haven't got Lloyd get him over Joey or Birch. And depending on your trade situation Stewart to Witherden is a nice cash grab & a good rookie in return with DPP

SirSamuel016

Yeah I have Lloyd, Doch, Adams, Rance and Shaw in the backline. If I make the two trades this round I'll have 7 left so upgrading is the way I need to go.

B T

Stewart>Premo Defender

Next week
Nank>Gawn

B T

That is if you have Stewart on field.
If not go
Stewart>Witherden

Tyruddanaut

Haha when I saw this I thought you were saying Stewart is better than a premo Defender

Haze

Was all set to cash in Stewart to a rookie to free up cash to fix Nank issue (have him in the ruck).
Now I have beams plus Barrett's high BE to deal with.

Do I trade Barrett to a rookie (witherden or brown) then go Beams to premo mid (currently have danger, Merrett, tmitch, jelwood, Bont, SPP)
Or trade Barrett to rookie, then trade beams, swing Greenwood to mids, swing Nank forward leaving me to bring in Gawn or Kruzer?
Going for league win and I still have 14 trades and $74k in bank. Thoughts?

Nick

I have neither of Bont or Jelwood and one premo spot left in mids. Surely it makes sense to hold until jelwood drops to Low hundreds rather than Bont now at low 5 hundreds. Can anyone not see jelwood as a top ten mid and bargain of the year at his predicted price in the next week or 2.

INPieman

Wait for Jelwood & send Ballantyne a bunch of flowers if you have someone decent to hold the spot like Greenwood. If your running a crap rookie at M8 move now on Bont

Nick

Thanks Pieman will do. I have J loyde at M8 for now, who will drop back to replace Shaw and make room for Jelwood when he bottoms out.

Boi

If Jelwood gets in the 400s then he will be bargain of the decade.

Bobbybots

I need one more mid, fwd and ruck.
I want Heeney, Gawn and jelwood.
10'trades left.
Have Stewart, berry, SPP, sharenberg, cousins, parsons, Hannan and greenwood as playing (when named) bench.

I want Gawn next week selwood in a few and heeney whenever.
Who should I trade out, when and who for?

Free Kick

Stewart has fractured his eye socket so trade him and Berry or SPP would be my next choice, downgrade them to any available bubble boys and cash up for your upgrades.. Then grab Gawn and Jelwood at their cheapest..

TOPHAWK1

"Basher" Houli has received a new invitation to attend the AFL tribunal on Thursday evening.

The AFL has appealed the 2 week suspension handed out by the tribunal as "manifestly inadequate".

Well done AFL!

You have actually made a good decision for a change.

Character "references" by politicians or celebrities whether good or bad, should bear no influence on the penalty imposed for an off the ball "dog" act committed on the football field. He did what he did. Period.

Hopefully, Houli is going to get some extra holiday time. Nothing less than 4 weeks is acceptable IMO.

pod

Do players get to challenge a tribunal finding? Should work both ways or not at all.

TOPHAWK1

Of course players can challenge MRP/Tribunal rulings.

Let's say Houli ends up with a 4 week suspension on Thursday night, Richmond/Houli can appeal that decision also.

I know they won't, because they know 4 weeks is what he should have got in the first place.

pod

True, just never hear of any, too risky for the player/team. No risk for the AFL.

hedski

Schofield challenged this week Pod and got off.

TOPHAWK1

There have been many successful club/player challenges after a guilty-suspension verdict.

Remember Steele Sidebottom in 2014 when he copped 4 weeks for "rough conduct" against Mav Weller (Saint Kilda)?

Collingwood/Sidebum appealed that decision by the tribunal and it was reduced to 3 weeks…….

INPieman

A highly talented heart surgeon died today from a random sucker punch. A reference from the PM to get down to 2 weeks is an absolute disgrace. It's a shocking example to future generations. Thug act suspensions should be enormous to stamp that shit out

TOPHAWK1

You are so right Pieman.

A heart surgeon is killed for asking a bloke not to smoke in front of the hospital entrance. Gee wizz…what a tragedy.

I know this is a fantasy footy forum where this kinda stuff should not be discussed, but sometimes you just have to say something.

I do not have any issue with Houli as a person, but punishment must fit any poor act on the footy field.

Cheers mate.

Daniel Z

Whenever I see an incident like this, I wonder 'what would happen if it wasn't on a footy field?"

I'm always surprised that a guy who knocks another player out is allowed to finish the game and face consequences a week later. It just seems that if he put his team at a disadvantage by being red-carded (and reported), it might deter similar behaviour in the future.

Leeds17

lets not confuse what Houli did with a King Hit.

Tyruddanaut

But…… it's Malcolm Turnbull…… Waleed Ali

Billioux

Agree with these thoughts totally. Good words.

Cogla13

Richmond will try again to downgrade it from intentional to careless which would leave it at 2 weeks. But suspect the public pressure will insure they increase the suspension to at least 3 weeks regardless.

Bock Choy

I was expecting a suspension of 2 weeks, so when that was given, I was not surprised. It was clearly never the intent of Houli to strike Lamb in the face, especially given the strike did deflect off his shoulder. It is also very difficult to knock someone out while actually trying to run away from them.

Also, I do not believe that Oliver was staging with the Schofield strike. A forearm can generate tremendous power and a light clip to the right spot on the jaw is enough to drop someone, even if only for an instant. It did appear the tribunal came to their decision without any expertise in martial arts.

Kindergarten Cop

Stop Whining! STOP IT NOW

Randomcliche

Lekdog coloured Howe in Carlton colours…Bloody wishful thinking there!

INPieman

Maybe he meant Daisy

Russty_

I bet Melbourne wish they had him back…he's played much better at Collingwood.

Sana

Nah Melbourne are OK mate

Daniel Z

I saw that too and thought, man with Docherty and Simpson, that'd be a formidable back line.

B T

Should I look at moving on Scooter this week?

Rocky or Parker?

Russty_

I guess wait till teams come out tomorrow, I'm gonna hold regardless, unless they say he's out for 2 weeks +

Mac

My team 9 Trades $295,400

Def. Doc Laird Lloyd Simpson Rance Newman ( Stewart Witherden )

Mid. Danger Martin Titch Ablett Oliver Treloar Adams Fyfe ( Scooter SPP JDC )

Ruc. Martin Sandi ( Strdn )

Fwd. Yeo JJK Dahl Nank ABN Greenwood (Parsons Bolton )

Thinking next week Sandi to Gawn.
My question for the community is should i trade stewart to get Adams into backline (newman D7)
and pick up Bont or just start loading up forward line ( 3 of greene macrae heeney wallis )

Just outside top 1000 so going for leagues.

Any thoughts much appreciated

Tyruddanaut

Trade out Newman for Adams. Newman won't score nearly as well as Adams but is also wasted on the bench.
I would trade Newman, move Adams back, move Bolton mid and sub Scooter into play. Then choose a forward of your liking. I would recommend Macrae, Heeney or Buddy.
Also a second trade of downgrading Stewart may be necessary so you can double upgrade next week

Mac

Thanks Tyruddanaut makes sense.
Only problem is that i went Otten to Witherden last thurs.( because Ryan was on ext. bench)
Would u recommend getting a non playing rookie for Stewart or too risky

Tyruddanaut

No need. Brennan Cox is on the bubble this week and is a Def/Fwd. I wouldn't worry about his JS as much because with Fyfe coming back the obvious replacement is Josh Deluca-Cardillo. He should last a while and at 117k, he fits your team

Tyruddanaut

You want me to trade out Nank AND Lynch Lekdog? Worst idea ever.
I have 4 trades left and one of them is set in stone so 3 that I can use. I would actually trade in Lynch this week, if I didn't have him

Russty_

Maybe he meant Nank and Lynch assuming you had 10 trades + left…I wouldn't do anything if I were you, unless I had to, no offence but I think you might be struggling to make it the end of the season with only 4.

TOPHAWK1

What? Only 4 trades left mate!

You are starting to run out of options.

1- Do not waste another trade getting in Tom J lynch……or trading him out…he has burnt me and you.
2- Next week you can grab Gawn for the Nank. U have the $90K for the straight switch mate?

Tyruddanaut

Yeah, I have the 90k, but I'm strongly considering Scooter for Jelwood. Which one do you think is better

Cogla13

Grasshopper go Bang Bang!

Mike

Bont or T . Mitchell

B T

Bont.

Very good value atm.

jez_m

Agreed. Bont is a value buy this week.

Jordan

Hi Community!
I have 8 trades left and 50k
here are my options for this week
Option 1: beams to shuey/Bont
Option 2:beams to shuey/Bont and shaw to hibberd
Option 3:beams to Neale
Option 4 Ainsworth to witherdon and beams to any mid(maybe Merrett)

Thanks in advance!!!!

Russty_

I reckon just Beams to Bont Jordan, and save the rest.

Tyruddanaut

Pocket the cash with Beams to Bont

INPieman

Beams to Neale. Only plays as a Mid

B T

Bont back in form and is crucial for the Doggies run home.

Beams>Bont is a great idea.

Cogla13

I wouldn't say he is in good form on the back of one game. Bont plays forward to much as well.

Tyruddanaut

What's everyone's predictions on the top PODs?
I think that someone like McEvoy could be worth a look and maybe even an underperforming midpricer like Mills or Vlaustin

B T

Very risky business but could be just what some need to boost themselves up the rankings.

High risk v high reward.

Randomcliche2

Howe still very low ownership….Harbrow to finish strong after a mid season break. Kruezer not owned by enough but he's expensive as a PM character reference….

jez_m

Everyone was talking about Vlaustin during the pre-season and how he would get more midfield time this year. Avoid like the plague.

James T

Hey guys, here's my team down below. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated 🙂 $125k in bank and 11 trades left.

Doc, Laird, Lloyd, Rance, Shaw, Newman (Sharenberg, Ryan)

Danger, Pendles. Zerrett, JPK, Treloar, Fyfe, Wines, SPP (Cousins, Berry, Hibberd)

Stef, Nank (Strnadica)

Dahl, Macrae, Heeney, Buddy, Petracca, Greenwood (Eddy, Bolton)

Thanks!

Russty_

Giday James, you're in a good position, Team's pretty good.

I would go Berry out for Witherden, and Petracca out for Yeo or Billings.

James T

Thanks for the response Russty, I always look out for when I see you post 🙂

I was 100% thinking the same in regards to the Berry to Witherden trade… but I hadn't considered trading Petracca until now. Was just thinking of him as my POD fwd.

Is that Petracca trade more urgent compared to me trading out Shaw to Adams? or Nank to Gawn next week?

Thanks mate!

Russty_

Hey James, I think Berry has to go…low scoring trend, and Petracca needs to make way for a proper premium forward for you who'll get you good points every week, not just 75 to 80.

Greenwood could be a keeper which will mean your fwd line is complete if you get Yeo or Billings.

Nank and Shaw can wait as they're not injured and could turn their recent bad form around.

James T

Cheers Russty, I feel the same about Berry. He served his purpose and Witherden will be the man to replace. And you are right about Petracca, Yeo would probably be the pick for me.. but I must admit Toby Greene/J. Cameron are tempting me too.

Yes that is true, I planned on trading Greenwood once/if he started to dip so I'll keep that in mind.

True! But it could also be a good shout next week to go SPP to Adams, Nank to Gawn and keep Shaw until Jelwood is bottomed out, swing Adams to def and Shaw almost straight to Jelwood? What do you reckon? Thanks mate

Russty_

Yeah I'd wait till Selwood and Gawn have reached achievable break-evens and then look to get em in…then you'll have a kickass team for the finals.

I'd be looking to get Selwood and Gawn in before Adams….your backline might be fine if Shaw gets some form back soon.

James T

Yeah good suggestions, thanks mate! Yeah I hope so, my gameplan was always to push hard late and save trades as most people run out even before finals!

Selwood will be a steal for the price and Gawn will be a must have in my book, Adams is just going to be tempting for his lowest price of the year next week is all haha. Hows your squad looking as of now Russty?

Russty_

I'm pretty happy with it James, except for Lynch (Adelaide) being out this week..I'm ranked in the low 3000's but not really playing for rank this year, just league wins.
Still have 9 trades left so i'm hoping Fyfe and Scooter play this week so I can hang onto them for this week.

Good luck mate…hope you come home strong.

James T

Ah sorry to hear mate, Lynch is an excellent POD I would have thought, plays a big part in that great crows squad. League bragging rights are better anyways 🙂 Fyfe better get up, I need him back and healthy, ill pray that Scooter plays for you Russty.

Cheers mate!! You too!

jez_m

I wouldn't be advocating a Schoenmakers trade in. Stratton is due back from injury soon and I suspect that Schoey will be the man who makes way.

Russty_

You'd have to desperate wouldn't ya?….trading in The Cobbler.

jez_m

Yep. Hawthorn have said that Stratton is available this week, so I'd expect him to come straight back in. Schoenmakers drops out, Sicily goes forward and Stratton slots into defence.

HuI

Yep he will be out very soon

Finnius123

If sandi is not named would anyone go early on him to Gawn? I have cover but it would mean starting lynch on field and not loopholing him with nank.

Russty_

$550K isn't too bad a price for the best Ruck in the competition, and playing Lynch might not be such a bad thing, you'd have to think he can turn it around soon as he's capable of much more than the lousy 30 somethings he's put up lately, he hasn't actually had such a bad year barring some crappy scores if you look at his season's record.

Say NO to Drafts

When I click the ''çheat sheet' button i do not want to see an add for draft stars, so can you add a button that says "bugger off im never going to play draftstars" ?

Russty_

I don't mind it mate, I reckon Jock and his crew have been doing this caper for a long time trying to build their brand probably for zero or very little profit and a lot of time put in…so, if there is some extra advertising/diversifying, whatever you want to call it, for them to be able to deliver our favourite Footy Forum fulltime, I'm all for it.

P.S, there are free Draftstars games to play….and it's quite fun!

Jordan

Dusty, Neale, merret or Bont for last premium spot

Russty_

I'd want Merrett if I had to choose out of those 4…he's a solid option.

B T

Hard to pass up on any of those players but…

Bontempelli at that price is VERY hard to pass up.

Russty_

Should've listened to Ranger last week, I was asking the community whether or not I should trade out Koby Stevens (who dropped two 50's scores the last two weeks) to Tom Lynch (Adelaide).

Low and behold, Stevens scores a 97 and Lynch scores a 77 and is now out of this round with some kind of mystery FKN Virus!

Not meaning to be a whiner, cause I hate whiners, but in hindsight, it's a trade I shouldn't have done because it wasn't necessary.

Let that be a lesson to all you fellow, non whiners out there, don't trade unless it's necessary! lol

Boss

Its just been one of those seasons.

Its happened to everyone, don't feel to bad about it.

Randomcliche2

Might just use my last two trades next week so I do think have to make any more mistakes…hehhehe

Noah

Advice on this trade:
t stewart – witherden
buddy – docherty

Donkey

Not a great idea

Why would you trade Buddy?

What is your current forward line?

What is your current backline?

jez_m

Yes to the first trade, no to the second.

Pete

Does Rockliff score more with Beams out?
I heard Zorko got tagged out last game, would this lead more points Rocky's way?
I haven't had a chance to watch Brissie play this year…
Any help would be awesome, considering Rocky for my final mid spot.

Haze

Rocky has super good ceiling and yes, should score more with Beams out. I am a lions supporter and the issue is on the games we suck, players just don't get enough points. In saying that Rocky tends to top score though and loves being the main mid so beams out will help him. Zorko has had a super year, just had a quiet game last week

Pete

Thanks mate, do other teams ever bother tagging rocky?
Wasn't he injured recently too, would you get him as your last pick mate or would you go Neale or zerret.

Haze

He does gets tagged now and then, but doesnt bother his scores too much. And yes, just coming back from injury so is risky. I tend to avoid him as he is very up and down (although his up is super good – depends on your team balance). If you have enough consistent players, he is always a good option. For a safer pick, go Merrett

Pete

Thanks haze, your a champ, very helpful info mate

Daniel Z

I'm at a bit of a loss as there seems to be issues across all lines on my team (even issues that weren't there 1-2 weeks ago).
I have 10 trades left and 84k in the bank.

D: Docherty / Howe / Lloyd / Newman / Harbrow / Hibberd // Shaw / Stewart (injured)
M: Danger / Pendles / Oliver / Adams / Ebert / Hanneberry / Priddis / SSelwood // Fyfe (injured) / DLloyd / Cousins
R: Martin / Kreuzer // Sandi (injured)
F: Franklin / Nankervis / Pedersen / Greenwood / Hannan / Bolton // JJK (injured) / Parsons

I'm reasonably happy with my backs and rucks, although I need to clear out some $ from the bench (I missed d/g Luke Ryan by 1 second last weekend…). I wanted to move Adams back into defense and have JLloyd take over M9 spot (don't know if I'll be able to get there now). Mids, I'm concerned most about Priddis and Fyfe and don't want to have $ on the bench to loophole one of them. My forwards are a hot mess and have been most of the year – I am targeting Yeo and one of Macrae / Dahl / Heeney (for now – again, don't think I'll have the trades or $ for two of them).

What would you do if this was your team (aside from start planning for 2018)?

Daniel Z

Sorry, I don't know why I put Sandi in – I traded him out two weeks ago for Kreuzer.
Replace Sandi with CAMERON.

Tyruddanaut

Stewart should be your first out. Move Adams to your back line and Bolton to your midfield. With the money upgrade your forward line ASAP.
Next decide out of Newman or Shaw (I'd go Shaw) for who to give the boot and downgrade to Brennan Cox.
This should give you 200 odd dollars in the chest

Next week trade out Hannah and Parsons and move Cox forward via DPP.
Ins: Witherden and Premo forward.
6Trades left

Boner Contention

C'mon DeeZee, keep positive…lol
Shaw to Cox / Ryan and Yeo in for Lloyd. Bolton to mid bench.

DumbStruck

WTF Houli gets 2 for an errant backhander that KO'd lamb but Dusty didn't even get a fine for the throat punch that put Ed Curnow in hospital with a bruised larynx. I'm not suggesting that the match review panel are racist or play favourites but I'm sure Dusty would have copped a couple if the media even mentioned it once.

B T

Alright mate

Jamie

Is newman to Adams a must next week? Adams is due an injury surely??

Cogla13

Nobody is "due" an injury.

Tyruddanaut

Why do you say that? A history of injury proneness doesn't mean he still is. With ruckmen it's a different story because their jobs put lots of strain on legs

Bruh

People still tend to find excuses when they miss out on one of the best premos for the year.

He has played every game this year, and at a high level I might add.

Ja191

Message for the fyfe holders. Ross said he may put Fyfe permanent forward if he comes back this week

INPieman

Same bloke that said Sandi would only miss a week with a tight hammy

Boner Contention

If he snags a couple of goals, plays like a mid then his score has to be better than now. Go Ross you beauty

Big F

hey lads… need some advice….. fyi only going for leagues.

6 trades left…. yes its dangerously low with $539k to spend.

Is it worth trading stewart to lloyd leaving newman as D7 , and always having decent cover for the rest of the year ?

Am thinking of trading hannan to R.Gray via greenwood for my last mid spot, this would leave SSelwood as my M9 , too dodgy to use as bench cover for the rest of the year??

also need to use 1 trade next week for sandi > gawn

i'm hoping form there i'lll just glide into league finals hahahahaha * shit is def doing to hit the fan*

Derek

If going for leagues you need trades up your sleeve.

If you are in the top 4 or confident you will make finals, I would hold back

plugger

hold off on trade, stewart will not be out all that long may even come back next week

Doc

Doch, Adams, Laird, hibberd, Lloyd, Shaw (Stewart, Junker)

Danger, Zerret, Titch, Pendles, Hanners, Jelwood, Bont, Steven (Bolton, Hewett, Greenwood)

Witts, Gawn (Strndica)

Yeo, Dahl, McRae, Wallis, JJK, Hannan (Bayok, Nank)

Will look to trade Hannan to a forward in the next couple of weeks (will have 550k to spend) – thoughts on best target (? Billings)

Any other major issues to fix?

Doc

Sorry, Newman is at D7 (not STEWART).

B T

Newman > Witherden
No point in having him as a D7

Hannan > Heeney

Joe T

Thinking Hannan to Brown or Cox and Barrett to Zach Merrett. Good POD premo option or should I look at JPK to finish off my midfield?

jez_m

I like the Merrett trade. I wait until teams are named tonight though until trading in Brown or Cox – both have shaky job security.

Morphintime

nic newman….

KrazeeEyezK1lla

holding. if you've already got guys like Laird, Doch, Adams, Lloyd, Hibberd, etc. I can't justify attempting to trade him up. who else is there? Roberton? Hurley? that's about it

plugger

has premo like scores, definitely a hold

B T

Easily a good D6

Tehee

doesn't like guessing sentences

redherringfc

Who to?

It's probably a wasted trade.

Sellars1226

Gawn or Kreuzer?

jez_m

Gawn.

Robert

Kreuzer

plugger

gawn but wait until next week

KrazeeEyezK1lla

Billings worth a look? Averaging 109 since round 7. one spud score in there and the rest over 100, and a couple 130+. nice little POD if he can average 100 in the way home

SC_Kev7

Don't mind him. Suspect a lot of teams have at least one KPF and my god man they've been shite of late! (looking at you, Lynch!)

KrazeeEyezK1lla

think I'll roll the dice. not in any cash leagues, so just going for overall position. not going to win, so stuff it, let's see how he goes!

Matt

Thoughts on these trades:
Nank to witherden
Stewart to doc

Derek

have you got anyone else besides nank you can trade out to get cash?

Matt

Only one that gives me enough to get Doc in

Big G

Interesting no callum brown in the cheat sheet? Is his js that bad?

SC_Kev7

Hasn't set the world on fire so far and the Pies need a re-jig up forward, might get squeezed out.

INPieman

If Jamie Elliott passes a fitness test today he's likely to make way

Robert

or he makes way for the superstar Cox

Stuffla

I think he is a huge priority and the way Buckley has been speaking about him, I'd expect him to get a few more games at least.

BlueNath

He made mention of him in his intro to the post (before you click the link)
