Round 15 Supercoach Panic Room

Published by Patch on

PanicRoomRd15

I think I’ve finally calmed down after last Friday. Maybe.

Actually let’s all take a second to shove our collective head out the window and let out one final scream.

Good. Let the hate flow through you. It makes you strong.

Now, cool, calm and collected as a cucumber, onto business.

THE NEWS

Everything is only mildly less awful than it was last week, but not by much.

Nat Fyfe and Aaron Sandilands have been ‘named’ by Freo this week, with Fyfe being proposed as playing forward. That would concern me if I still had him. Also:

Joel Selwood has been named, but I’m hoping for his long term health as a human being he doesn’t play. My Supercoach team on the other hand is no man, but a sadistic point eating machine! (Pls send help, it’s starving)

Joel’s brother Scott Selwood will miss with injury, however, as will Dayne Beams after he was poleaxed by an oak barrel with legs last weekend.

Supercoach star Gary Ablett and star-to-be Josh Kelly both return for their sides, with Gary locked in to tear North apart.

Zak Jones and Jarryd McVeigh return for the Swans, which will have an interesting impact on Jake Lloyd’s role in the side.

Episode V, Revenge of the Cast-Aside Rookies is upon us, with Mitch Hibberd, Cedric Cox and the infamous 2016 mystery man Ryan Davis from Gold Coast all returning. Adding to the flavour of the round is pre-season hype wunderkid Zach Guthrie’s looming debut.

But you win some and you lose some. In this case we lose Andy Otten, Sam Petrovski-Seton, Tom Stewart, Tim Taranto and Jarrod Pickett all making way.

Also Matt Priddis continues to upset me by missing this week. Knew I should have backed my gut and gone Sloane. DAMMIT MATTHEW.

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFT STAR

I’m not very good at this, but am of the opinion you absolutely must start Titch and Pendles this week. Titch is the new Draftstars pig while Pendles will go large in game 250.  

Pending Sunday selections, I’ve build my side around these two blokes. The selection of Big Boy is purely for the extra cash – Grundy will give him a bath. Mind you, the inclusion of Mason Cox is enough to make you pause.

Broomhead is a lock if he plays.

PanicRoom1

Stark change to last week where everyone was avoiding the big names and splashing the cash – at least for mine. How are you seeing it, community? Make sure you head on over to run your eye over Higgo’s genius here – or bang on into this week’s free community contest below.

CAPTAIN McCAPTAINFACE

As I’m pressed for time this week, community, I want to throw this week’s superhero to the floor: pick one bloke you reckon will tear it apart this weekend who isn’t Paddy Dangerfield (VC) or Scott Pendlebury (C) – Pendles as it’s his 250th and Dangerfield… well, because he’s Dangerfield.

Mine is (surprise, surprise) Zach Merrett. While he only hit 112 against the Lions earlier in the year, this game last season (at Etihad) he tore the roof off the joint. The Lions are missing most key players in their midfield, and Rockliff still seems to be carrying something. Merrett’s gone at an average of 131 over his past 3 and I reckon he’ll top that this week.

Who are you looking at, community? Over and out, Patch

Go Blues!

Tyruddanaut

Never read anything better in my life

Hoot

VC to Sloane may be the difference… considering

TheGreatBozza

I really like it. Guys with ridiculous ceilings (refer to G.Ablett, T.Rockliff) make the best VC options I say.

Bock Choy

Oh, the luxury of being able to view the team changes and then ponder the next move. No frantic changes in the hour between team announcements and the first bounce!

Russty_

Amen to that…Thursday games suck!

LoganJosh7

actually like Thursday games – just from a viewers point of view I love it. hate it from a supercoach view

Hoot

Imagine how difficult it will be to play SC when games become a daily event like the NBA.

Tommy

Should i field greenwood over t lynch this week? cheers

Sam

I'm having the same issue…out of Lynch, Greenwood and Parsons who goes to the pine and who gets the E…

I think Tarrant will be all over Lynch this week. Parsons has the harder match of the three so it's feeling like a coin toss between the others

MickyB

Yes

Relton

i have greenwood at M6 and love it. my dilemma is do i bench lynch for parsons? norths tarrant will lockdown on lynch and possibly another stinker 🙁

Mick

Tough! Surely Lynch comes good tho. I'm trying to decide which one to trade to Gawny and which to keep as my F6 with Nank as F7/R3. If Lynch goes gotta be this week, if Greenwood I'll wait a week.

Bock Choy

Last week I was looking at the opportunity to loophole Hardwick with Lynch (couldn't do it due to the brief cameo from Pickett).

This week I am looking to loophole Lynch with Hardwick given he's a better chance to post a usable score.

Seeker

I gotta field Greenwood for JJK (still). Thinking of downgrading Lynch to Matt White (PTA) and leave Parsons as my bench cover. Next week bang-bang full Premo and maybe a luxury trade to Gawn when he drops more $$

Beezneez

I'm torn between two options for Greenwood. Put the E on him in the fwd line and, if he scores well, I'll replace Lynch with Eddy. However, also thinking of using him in the same way in the mids for Witherden.

James

Thinking I need to bin Priddis, can anyone give me a reason not too?

MickyB

Id trade

Relton

if you have the cash i'd trade up to a bont or merrett. if your strugglin for $$ and have solid benchcover maybe hold a week or two for jelwood and rocky to bottom out around ya 450k straight swap nearly.

Diesel

VC Gaz, C danger

INPieman

Let's hope Danger doesn't get Baby Brain like Pendles did

MickyB

Reasonable to get zerret for beams this week and jelwood or dusty for sloane if he keeps this shit up?

SCathiest

I'm going Doch into Danger. But as per Patches rule of "who isn’t Paddy Dangerfield (VC) or Scott Pendlebury (C)" I'll go
Doch (VC) into Zerret (C)

Relton

need to downgrade S.Selwood this weeek to 1 of C.brown or WItherden… after JS!
then next week beams to either rocky or jelwood when they bottom out..

Rick Grimes

Anyone else deeply concerned about Fyfe and this potential upfield business? Is it better to just cut our losses than risk a massive turd of a score?

Relton

i'm holding rick. i feel a few weeks to freshen up will have helped and sandi tappin down his throat again will be happy days. but am extremely nervous! also i just dont have the trades to be making moves like this

Tyruddanaut

If you've held him this far hold him

Cogla13

Traded Fyfe during the byes. I've slept a lot better the last couple of weeks.

Skinny McThin

Blakely got dropped for chucking a sickie from training to go surfing, opens up the mid spot for Nathan

No one

This is my favorite post. I love reading people's thoughts on what they think Ross Lyon may do…….

Tyruddanaut

Rodney Eade has been reported saying that Tom Lynch (GC) has been fighting mental demons

INPieman

So have I since I brought him in

Beezneez

LOL

Tyruddanaut

Does anyone know the length of Scooters injury

FizzEm

1 weeek at this stage.

Skinny McThin

About 3cm it's only a small tear

Steve

5 years.

Tyruddanaut

I bloody hope you're joking

Starry

Hey guys. What's the minimum amount of trades you should have now? I need 1 more trade to be full premo but don't want to burn myself later on. Need to win almost every game in my money league to make finals…

SC_Kev7

In a money league just go for broke, Starry. Having trades in the bank won't do much good if you miss out on finals

Tyruddanaut

You'll only win a money league if you take risks, this should be one

INPieman

Let's pray the gods are kinder to us this Friday Patch. Last week was brutality

Da_Boysh

Is Greene out!?

INPieman

Zac Williams. It begins

SCathiest

Hope not. Why? Haven't heard that one yet!!

INPieman

Done a hammy. Replaced by Finlayson who's debuting

Craig

Well I don't think I'll trade Shaw now. He should be back to his old position that Williams has been playing.

Da_Boysh

Hi All,

7 trades left 180k in the bank 2 trades from premo (considering holding Greenwood at F6 hes better than the other spuds out there which means 1 trade from premo)

Question is, does Marc Murphy need to go. I am toying with upgrading him to Merret..

I dont want to blow trades but I just feel like hes done for the season.

Derek

At this stage you keep. If you have trades left you can jump on someone who is steaming home

Skinny McThin

Scrap Murphy immediately! a 5 round ave of almost 80 isn't good enough from a mid Merrett will give you an extra 40+ points each week

#Pieinghigh

My only trade this week..

Myers > Witherden.

I am holding Scooter until a mid drops below $473k that I want.. 3k short of Robbie gray :(.

Derek

Get a $102k rooki instead of Witherden

Spanner

Wait til after Joel Selwood drops in the next few weeks

Thomas

Now that it is being reported that Tobias Greene has done his hammy who is the next best fwd option out of Heeney and Buddy?

Thomas

Or is the Zac Williams injury?

Russty_

Zac Williams strained his hammy and won't play, haven't heard anything about Greene.

Where'd you get your info from?

INPieman

Williams officially withdrawn & replaced. Toby Greene still just a rumour

Russty_

Cheers Pie…bloody hate rumours!

Liam

How long is Williams out for ?

Noirlust

For me, that means i hold Heater another week and slap him with a C.
Playing Geelong, he should see that footy quite a bit.

I hope..

Thomas

Fantasy Freako on twitter, could be based on rumour though.

Russty_

Cheers, I saw this on AFL late mail too…….

Some big news out of GWS, as Adam Curley reports

GREATER Western Sydney defender Zac Williams has been ruled out of Saturday's crucial clash with Geelong with a hamstring injury and there are suggestions star forward Toby Greene may have hurt his hamstring at training on Friday morning.

Thomas

GWS just released this statement:

Toby Greene completed training this morning and was assessed by medical staff for ankle soreness. He is expected to play in #AFLGIANTSCats.

Revised question: assuming Tobias plays who is the best fwd option out of him, Gerber and Bud?

hedski

Probably Gerber Thomas he's a gun…..is that Heeney?

Don't Blush Baby

Nank or Parsons on field ? Can't loop Eddy ,was looking at Nank to Greene until the rumours started.

LoganJosh7

seriously? nank every day

neil Demons Delight

Nank for sure

Dutch

If Parsons outscores Nank it will likely only be by 10-20, but Nank could easily outscore Parsons by 40+.
Bank every day

Russty_

Greene will play DBB, his so called 'Hammy" injury was just a bit of ankle soreness.

Big M

Oh crikey – don't know what to do
bring in Dusty or Heeney
Heeney is $100k cheaper
but Dusty is average is 14 higher (or rolling 3 match is 17 higher)

Big M

Or even Neale – oh the dilemma

Benjamin B

Toby Greene completed training this morning and was assessed by medical staff for ankle soreness. He is expected to play in #AFLGIANTSCats.

Captain Risky

Missed all the carnage last week. Have Williams out this week. I guess nobody escapes everything.. hopefully that's my only out. Greene on my never never list so safe there.

INPieman

No flog policy capatain?

Captain Risky

Absolutely 🙂 He may be a good player but….

kanetrain10

Need a hand here. Got Beams and Z Williams in my side. Need the H2H win this week. Got 10K and 9 trades.

Should I:

1. Trade both Z Will and Beams for similar players

2. Leave Z Will, Trade Beams for premo mid and do Barrett > M White, play Berry for Z Will

3. Leave Beams for this week, play SPP on field, Trade Z Will for premo def and Barrett to Matt White

4. any suggestions let me know!

LoganJosh7

I wouldnt go matt white. the two good bubble options are schoenmakers (155k) or witherdon (117k). will give you more cash than white as well

Morty

What to do with Taranto?

INPieman

Out for the season. Trade

SC_Kev7

Trade

Ranked1

Absolutely trade

neil Demons Delight

must trade Morty

POTS

13 trades and $1500 cash
Thinking of Stewart/Barrett out for Macrae/Witherden

Still have Nank (FWD), Scooter and Steele. Looking at Gawn for Nank next week.
Assuming Steele returns, do I trade Barrett (BE 118) or Steele (BE 128) first?

SC_Kev7

Barrett goes first for mine. Steele was tough to be dropped. Gone back to VFL level and (unsurprisingly) carved it up

TheGreatBozza

Agree with Kev, gotta get rid of Barrett. If Steele does play he's got a much higher ceiling

Lazza

Right now it doesn't matter what we want to do .. SC won't stay up long enough to make changes or reverse changes .. anyone else experiencing this?

INPieman

If your on the app you need to delete it & reinstall it. Solves the problem

TheGreatBozza

I'd love the thoughts from the community about what's the best move. Currently have 13 trades and $80k bank:

DEF: Doc, Adams, Howe, Laird, Shaw, Newman (Scharenberg, Ryan)
MID: Danger, Treloar, Pendles, JPK, Bont, Fyfe, LLoyd, SPP (Beams, Scooter, Cousins)
R: Grundy, Sandi (Cameron)
FWD: Heeney, Macrae, Dahl, Nank, Greenwood, Lynch (Hannan, Bolton)

I'm playing for leagues with an easy game against 2nd bottom this week, so I'll hold Scooter as well as the Fantastic Four known as Shaw, Fyfe, Nank and Lynch.

Option 1 – single swap
Beams > Neale, Crips or Mitchell

Option 2:
Beams > Zerret or Dusty
Hannan > Brown

Option 3:
Beams > Yeo

Option 4:
Beams > Witherden or JDC
Hannan > Yeo

I'm leaning towards option 1 as I think Neale is great value, whereas Yeo may come down a bit more in price. Option 4 is probably my second choice as it gears me up to get Gawn for Sandi next week and look at bringing in the likes of Rocky & Joel for Scooter and SPP in the coming weeks.

FCAbel

Option 1

Borko

I think White is most likely of this week's rookies to make $100-150K from his starting price. That's why I am leaning towards him over the Beech/Brown types. He will be my final trade up in about R19 for my seventh fwd so I can start lopping Nank as my F7.

I guess its a different story if you are looking to bring in someone you don't plan to trade out again … even still, the others don't fill me with much confidence and/or lack dual position flexibility

neil Demons Delight

White appears to have at least some J S Got loads of pace but remember Houston could be a trap

Skinny McThin

White does this every year, plays a couple scores well then disappears. They call him 'Selleys' at Alberton because he is only used for filling gaps

Richie Porte

Who for Beams, Merritt, Neale or Kennedy

Keenbutclueless

Good luck tonight in TDF.

Richie Porte

Mate SuperCoach is far more important then the TDF. I need a win in my league.

TraderDanger

Team Done. Scooter on the pine til his bro is a swap over. 5 trades left. Greenwood the swingman for loopholing. Strnadica for the capt role he does so well. Real risk is Shazza and Ryan on def bench. Just thought I'd put the mozzon early.

alex

Bont, Cripps or Gray for Beams

Rivo

With Scooter on the pine, I have to bring Mountford on field with Greenwood sitting at F6. Pickett (M10) not selected and Bolton (F7) doubtful as an Emergency.

Trying not to trade with 7 left and $112k. The prize of Jelwood and Gawn is worth another week or 2 waiting.

Please SC Gods, no late outs this week!!!

Paul

Thoughts on going early on Stewart to Witherden and Shaw to Z Merrett (leaving Newman as D6)? Team is:

Doch, Adams, Laird, Rance, Shaw, Newman (Stewart, Ryan)
Danger, Pendles, Rockliff, Bontempelli, Hannebery, Fyfe, J Lloyd, Greenwood (Bolton, Hibberd, Cousins)
Martin, Sandi (Strnadica)
Yeo, Dahlhaus, Macrae, Franklin, Heeney, Nank (Parsons, Eddy)

Dave

Shaw nsmed on wing. Should get lots of pill

Paul

Have thought he'd get lots of the pill all year! Would ideally need to go with Merrett this week given his low BE so it could be now or never…

LoganJosh7

Sounds real nice 🙂

FCAbel

Might be worth holding Shaw to see is Zach Williams out changes anything.

Pom

Love the Panic Room Patch.
Can go to full "Keeper" (barring Nank) this week if I ship out Scooter Selwood and Hannan for Robbie Gray and Jack Billings.
Leaves me with 6 trades and 90k left in the bank; then next week a downgrade of parsons/berry to anyone cheap + Nank to Gawn.
Other thought is to have Berry on field this week in mids for scooter, trade out Hannan for Billings/Greene,get Gawn next week and Jelwood in 2 weeks after price crash.
Thoughts on either plan?

LoganJosh7

I like jelwood better than Robbie but up to you.

also witherdon is a great rookie to get next week 🙂

Dutch

Unless high up in the ranks option 2 is better – and I like Billings as a pod

ProTravo

Which two would you pick for your side: Neale, Ablett, Pendles, T.Mitchell?

Pom

T Mitchell and Neale.

Rivo

Pendles, Neale

ProTravo

No love for Ablett? Was thinking of bringing him in… Must go huge in game 300 at home against North?

Haze

I have Tmitch. Trying to work out who to swap for Beams….Dusty, JPK, Ablett or Pendels. Each day this week I have changed my mind! As tonights game gets closer, I am thinking Kennedy now but cant be sure!

ProTravo

Yeah, I'm in the same boat! Hard picking the best premo's.

Haze

All done – went Kennedy. Logic – Ablett injury prone. Just dont like the Pies. My plan is to do a few more downgrades in coming weeks (Stewart, SPP, Greenwood) free up some cash so I can get Dusty in as well. Plus with his BE at 145, I think he will come back a bit in price. Still have 12 trades so should be able to get there.

Russty_

Pendles and Mitchell for me.

Wattsieesq

Titch and Neale

Russty_

Selwood got on the plane to Sydney, so let's hope the bugger gets cleared to do his thing.

hedski

Joel would get thru the concussion test while he's still spasming on the ground asleep Russty, surely he's done it a hundred times now.

Tommo09

Trading Stewart and Hannan to Witherden and Brown/Beech

Thoughts???

Wal

Don't like going pre-bubble and I don't think either of Brown or Beech's JS is too crash hot

Tommo09

Neither will be consistently onfield so they are purely for cash

Wal

Fair enough but they won't be making any cash if they're not playing

Tommo09

Will take Beech

Stirlsy

As some no im based in WA, word im getting out of Melb is Selwood will play. Hope so cos im a little jittery about fielding Hibberd from nth.

neil demons delight

don't blame you there Stirls but suspect he will go ok .Been burning at vfl level

Jordan

Between Neale, merret, Rockliff and Joel Selwood I have to pick two to finish of my team the o my combination I can't do is Neale and merret
PLEASE HELP

Dave

Cant go wrong with either. I've got all but Selwood.

Given selwood's soon to be price, think he will be perfect for your team, and a pod in comparison to thise who are already full premo. Lock him in.

Do you rate Rockliff highly and think he will return to form. I sure do, but dont know when. If you personally think that will be soon then rocky needs to be picked.

Merrett if you want consistency.

Neale if you want an underrated pod, with a few question marks over hiw he will perform from here on.

So my suggestion is Selwood and Rocky if you are going for the prize.

Selwood and Merrett if you want a bit more consistency and assurance.

Selwood and Neale if you want a somewhat POD to catch up in ranks.

But god all three are good players, and the difference will likely be sweet F all.

Cheers

Iconic

Firstly, who do I trade for C. Brown OR M.White? T. Nankervis OR J. Parsons…
TRADE NANK >> Brown ($317,200)
TRADE NANK >> White ($236,700)
TRADE PARSONS >> Brown ($135,600)
TRADE PARSONS >> White ($54,500)

Wal

Have you considered not trading?

LoganJosh7

why trade parsons hes just had his best score by far? gonna go up nicely for the next two weeks

Iconic

Need cash to upgrade Greenwood in a few weeks

hedski

Brown dropped

Stupid Coach

Great work again Patch. Hopefully this week will be better for you and us all.

Which of the following options would suggest out of:
1) S Selwood to Witherden and SPP to Zerrett (9 trades and 108k)
2) Hannan to White and S Selwood to Bont or Macrae (9 trades and 62k with Bont)
3) S Selwood to White and SPP to Bont, Macrae, J Selwood and Merrett (9 trades and 26k with Merrett)

Not sure who out of White or Witherden has better job security. Both are DPP's which is a bonus.

Thoughts????

Nick

option 1

Stirlsy

Witherden has the better JS imo, id like another look at him but not much around.

Stupid Coach

Thanks Nick and Stirlsy. Agree that Fagan is more likely to persist with him than Hinkley will with White. Should I trade Hannan (via DPP with Bolton) or go with Option 1 as suggested.

James

Who to VC and C out of these guys:
Docherty, Danger Merrett, Zorko, Treloar, JPK, Bont and Merrett
Was thinking of VC on JPK and C on Danger, or VC Danger and C Merrett?? Please help!!

Nick

Danger into Merrett

HarryO

Lets all pray that zac williams out can rekindle the heath shaw of 2016!!

INPieman

S Hill Blakely & Deluca removed from the Freo squad. Ross up to his tricks again

LoganJosh7

you follow dr supercoach? 😉

or are you dr supercoach!

KrazeeEyezK1lla

Deluca was my mid cover. now I really need Jelwood to play. I don't want to have to move Greenwood to my E in mid, then lose his score if Jelwood does play. will get a donut if he misses though…

INPieman

Tough conundrum there Krazee

KrazeeEyezK1lla

I posted this below. this could be my option.

Can we see Cousins from Hawks getting another game anytime soon? Hawks feel like they're a chance for finals so I dunno If I can see them blooding any young players. considering dropping him for Witherden, which is a fairly minor gain.

would leave me with 134k, 6 trades with only Greenwood to turn into premo. Nank will also become Gawn next week for cheap. also gives me midfield cover this weekend should Jelwood be a late out

Stirlsy

Sort of in same boat, but hibberd can replace if late out, if they call it early that his an out i can move Adams up to guts and play Ryan but if its a game time call im left with Hibbered.

hedski

Ah my loop slave Deluca is back.

Dave

Does anyone honestly see a point in trading nankervis, considering he is averaging 93 this year.

Unless you for some reason haven't got the big gun fwds like Yeo, Macrae, Heeney, or Dalhouse, who the hell else would you bring in? NickRoo/Dixon/Buddy who are all averaging less?

Only valid reason would be to get Gawn. But I'll be stuffed if its worth sideways trading to another fwd who will likely go worth, or at the best get 5 more points a match. Boo rant over

KrazeeEyezK1lla

Buddy has been quiet. expect him to go BANG a few times soon

hedski

Hopefully tonight Kraze.

Tyruddanaut

Your hopes have been answered

Stirlsy

Its not the avg for the year that is the worry Dave its his avg over past 6 games that is saying trade his past 6 games is avg 80.6 and his last 3 is 72.3 you do the maths Dave.

James T

Stewart to Witherden. Yes or No.

hedski

Yep.

Wal

No

KrazeeEyezK1lla

Random

Poppy out cousins on extended bench

Pman

Cousins named as 3rd Emergency on Sunday which suggests he probably isn't too far away from getting another crack. I've got him on my bench and are holding for now as he will make more coin once selected.

Sully321

thoughts on nank to matt white and then berry to roberton, howe, hurley, or rance? this would leave me with 8 trades and needing to upgrade f6 and m8 and a possible sideways to gawn from grundy. as well as approximatey $180,000 in the bank

INPieman

Ross might fade him for that

INPieman

Trade

INPieman

Callum Brown & Ben Reid omitted. Can't believe my eyes to see Reid omitted. Buckley trying to lose his job faster

Wal

I understand Brown but like you Pieman I am more than a little surprised to see Reidy being omitted!

INPieman

Staggered Wal. For Mason Cox. Please

Stirlsy

Reid has to be sore or something, surely they play him up fwd over Cox.
Get down there Pieman and tell em to give Fatso a game…

INPieman

Buckley has some sort of fitness policy not aiding fatso's cause

hedski

Should judge selection on a pie eating comp.

Stirlsy

Would be close to leading the 2s goal kicking and that is Bucks problem, he thinks the whole team can kick a ball like he could, and less then 5 can in the entire squad, and that kills his gameplan every week.
But he keeps coaching down the same path.

neil Demons Delight

When I first saw him play I thought it was Serena but itell you this kid can take a grab and has a lot of mongrel something some at the club don't have… The new coach will sort him out

hedski

Rooe$$y!!

HarryO

is Scooter just precautionary and possibly a week? or has he restrained and 2-3 weeks…

Russty_

They're just saying a week so far…

Stirlsy

The weather is shitful over here Surf lol its a washing machine out there, im 2 hours from perth it might be missing them but they will cop it Sunday.

INPieman

Don't blame him. I'd rather go swimming with Great Whites than hang around Ross too

Mark

Oliver or Neale?

Wal

Neale

Adsy

Danger, Martin, TMitchell, Zerrett, JPK, Treloar, H.Greenwood and…. Beams.

Who is the best mid in apart from those I've named to bring in for Beams? Cheers all!

Wal

Pendles, absolutely no question

josh1010101

What do you think i do, do i trade in docherty in a few weeks meaning i use an extra trade (12 trades left) and have to play ryan and witherden (Zac williams on bench) this week or do i trade in harbrow/hurley/howe this week saving a trade?

golf

get in docherty, you have the amount of trades where if you are in a situation like this you can use it, and use it well

Luke

Simpson or Newman on field in defence this week?

Ja191

are you able to loop? if not I would say Newman. Simpson only really scores well when he's playing +1 in defence as we saw vs gold coast eg. Rotating him is hurting his scoring – newman safer option

Sam_01

You would think the ball would be down in the Carlton backline a bit I'd go Simpson

The Ranger

Loop Newman if you can.
Not sure of his role with McVeigh back.

Who's got the better JS between Beech and Brennan Cox? They'll be my F8 after trading out Hannan so purely looking for bench cover/cash generation

Dougal

Cox plays for Freo, always a risk….

But he does have that DPP if you need it….

Tough one, flip a coin.

Dougal

Hi community,

Glad to see it's a bit or a more relaxed panic room this week…. so far.

Quick question, goes against everything we learn and know as coaches. Missed Greenwood due to [insert poor excuse for not prioritising SC here]. Is it worth trading Lynch for Greenwood? With the plan for Greenwood to be a keeper. Would leave me with 7 trades for the run home

My only other headache is Nankervis in the forward line. Cheers community

Sam_01

Well I doubt greenwood will be a top 6 averaging fwd from here till the end so don't pick him

Finnius123

I am keeping him – but only because I bought him for 117k. In higgos words you would be close to 200k behind the competition and banking in a 100k loss on Lynch – so that is 300k down on everyone else. Probably not worth it as you are locking in your loss and picking up a bloke who isn't going to be a top 6 forward. Find an extra 100k and pick up Yeo, Heeney, Macrae, Dahl or Billings who are looking better and have a bit more experience.

Borko

Who has best JS: White, Shoenmakers or Beech? Need a second opinion

Finnius123

Schoenmakers – but he is 40k more expensive so probably not worth it at this stage of the season

Its time to ponder the VC options for another week. My major possibilities are Hannebery, the Doch, or Bontempelli. I am thinking going the Bont into Danger. The Bont could tear the Eagles a new one tomorrow with Priddis and a few other eagles missing. Good move? What are others thinking of doing?

INPieman

Gary doesn't mind playing north

TOPHAWK1

This is true Pieman. If I had Gazza he would be the man. But I dont. Didnt he rack up 215 SC points last time he played the shinboners?

Iamme

Yeah sounds good, I Don't have Gazza so I'm going Bont to the Dangerman also TOPHAWK1.

Stirlsy

Danger has the VC for me into Pendles

TOPHAWK1

I dont have dependlebury, if I did it would be a serious consideration.

Shake n bake

I was going to do the exact same Hawk but wen Danger into Merrett instead

TOPHAWK1

I dont have Zerrett….I would do the same if I did. I can grab him this week if I offload Tom Stewart for a rook and then upgrade either S Selwood or T lynch for Merrett. Just so bloody pricey compared to the bloke I am chasing this week…..the Bont.

hedski

Danger into my new mate Zerrett Toppa.

TOPHAWK1

Ahhhhh that is so tempting. Should I do a non Derek and "pay the price"? Here is the thing, If I get Zerrett this week I will need another 2 trades next week to get Gawn. If I get the Bont this week, I can get Gawn with one trade. (Nank to Gawn straight switch)

I need to do NOTHING TONIGHT! Except knock down a few bourbons and watch Hanners, Buddy, Heeney, and Lloyd go BIG. Thats the plan. hehe Cheers

Defying_Madness

I think I am going Kreuzer into Danger

The Ranger

Surely Ablett goes big in his 300th?
Bont into the Son of God for me.

Skinny McThin

Hutchins will have an easy night on Bont he usually has to cope with players who get 35+ disposals

Russty_

True, gotta be wary of that scenario.

Iamme

Do we think Nank to Ryder is a worthwhile trade, community? That will finish my forward line, as I already have Buddy, Heeney, Dahl, Macrae and Yeo,will leave me with 7 trades and 3 short of full premo …. I plan to trade Wittsy for Gawn next week.

Thanks guys.

Stirlsy

You would be looking at a 90 to 95 avg for rest of year from him, scores in 80s then pops out a 120 every now and then but also gives ruck cover if something goes wrong there.
Not the worst option and will prob save you some cash.

lozbruh

nah why is everyone trading nank. he is averaging 93

Iamme

Because he been on a downward spiral for some weeks now and it doesn't look like he will now be a top 6 forward….that's why.

The Ranger

Too sideways for me lamme.
One is averaging 93.08 and the other 92.92.

Iamme

Yeah thanks Ranger, I might go Greene instead.

Whatyasmokin

Would go Greene/Heeney/Macrae/Dahl type over Ryder any day. Depends what you want though with other factors such as DP.

Nank>Ryder is completely sideways in that dual position aspect too so no way would I pull the trigger on that trade.

Gjlane123

Heeney or Green ???

TOPHAWK1

Heeney for me mate. Greene apparently rolled an ankle at training yesterday. Probably will play, but Heeney is the better package.

Gjlane123

Done deal thanks mate !

Finnius123

Heeney is the package

Gjlane123

Done deal ! Cheers for input

Finnius123

I reckon that the best decision is to VC Danger this week. This is because if you bank someone's score of 120+ as VC you can always be nervous that Danger will beat it – and he probably will. It means that if Danger goes huge you won't miss because you took (correctly) a 125 from your VC. If Danger has a rare spudly effort then you are one step ahead of the 50% of the comp who whacked the C on him, and have a second chance to get it right compared to everyone else.

I am going C on Zerrett after Danger VC as I reckon his class on the outside will absolutely carve up the Lions.

That being said I captained Joel Selwood last week so maybe take my advice on captaincy with a pich of salt 🙂

Good luck this week!

TOPHAWK1

Nothing wrong with that mate! I dont have Zerrett though. If I VC'd Danger, and he spuds, my options are much more limited to yours. Tom Mitchell or Adam Treloar are my only realistic C plays at that point. But the odds say that Danger will grab 130+, so I might still entertain your strategy. Cheers Finnius

Finnius123

Well Titch and Treloar are both decent options. I just think that there is so much more upside to going Danger and backing him in rather than being very nervous about your VC not being good enough.

Russty_

Yep, can't listen to you Finnius, you have no credibility left after last week's effort…lol, just kidding mate, could've happened to anyone.

Mitchell

Best rookie to trade in this week?

Hoot

Beams out opens up the 1 game A.witherden

TOPHAWK1

I am still tossing up whether to trade or not. I have 8 trades left and holding back by not doing anything could bear fruit come the crunch rounds. Still I have Stewart to off load and I want the Bont this week at his current price. I can sleep on it tonight.

Thomas

Scott Selwood to gray and 86k in the bank so I can upgrade Luke Ryan in a few weeks or cop him as my last defender and upgrade Selwood to a ultra premo

Bells

FFS Buckly play Scharenberg. He's supposed to be my 2nd half bench cover.
Josh DC, SCOOTER out. Plans to go to Joel in a few weeks in serious jeopardy now.
Greene better play or I'm toast.

lewie

guys can u help me out on what to do
have 7 trades left
def – doctor, Adams, laird, Lloyd, hibberd, witherden [perryman, Ryan]
mid – titch, peddles, Bont, ross, Cripps, hannerz, shuey, rocky [bolton, cousins, mount ford
ruck – grundy, macevoy
fwd – dalha, buddy, heeney, lynch, nank, greenwood [parsons, eddy]

cheers bois

brad stev

matt white is a must

Alby

10 trades left thinking of getting rid of T Lynch GC and Barret for Yao and White is this a wise move or should I hold onto Lynch and give him a chance as I have only had him 2 weeks and his done stuff all.

Dave

Hold lynch

Russty_

Give Lynch another chance, he's a better player than his low scores this year.

The Ranger

If I had 10 trades I'd get Yeo.
In a MID/FWD vs KPF competition the MID/FWD wins every time.
Dunno about White tho…

Superfish

What defender to buy out of roberton Hurley rance or hibberd?

Joe

To field Newman or Shaw? Cannot loophole

Russty_

Take the punt on Shaw with no Williams there…could go well.

BlueNath

Agree

Hoot

Roberton for a chance at 130+
