awseome jock

Russty_

I've got Witts and Goldy…not sure whether or not to get Gawn, or if it's even necessary? He hasn't shown that much yet.

Wait another week..or not at all?

SC_Kev7

Great take from Stirsly on Gawn in BvC rookie scouting report comments. Dees have played him a good 10-15% less TOG than usual. His 96 this week came off a 6 day break.

He's just warming up Big Maxy imo. Injury game aside he's averaging 112 from 4 games and is 130k less than what he started

TRIGGA_HAPPY

go this week or wait a week ?
whats your call Kev?

SC_Kev7

I'm snagging him this week, Trig. A complicated move of swings that also involves getting Darcy, who I plan to use for a quick and dirty 150-200k that will fund my final upgrade.

wightyswarriors

So I have ryder and nank…trade one for gawn ?

TRIGGA_HAPPY

If u have an under performing fwd switch with Ryder and trade them to Gawn

TRIGGA_HAPPY

one I'm tossing up this week as well rusty
I've got Kruez and Witts_Witts to Gawn for $40k you would think would be a no brainer but witts punched out another ton on the weekend and is going along at 95 which is very reasonable for a R2
Probably as cheap as Gawn is gonna get though hasnt set the world on fire yet but I feel has another gear as his TOG has been limited first two games back.
95 b/e up against kreuz so if scores a 110 will probably go up $10k.
witts b/e 81 scores another ton goes up $10k
i dunno might be worth waiting a week see how the beard goes against Kruez.
really dunno on this one.

Russty_

Yeah agree cheers Trigga…might be worth waiting a week to see how the reduced beard goes, he shouldn't go up all that much even if he does well.

TigerNut

I'm in same boat. Wait another week I think and re-assess

Swans2012

I think I'm going this week……I have loved witts but he shows no capacity to throw down those 130+'s that we loved from gawn last year, The smarter move is probably to wait, but I'm sick of waiting this year

Top Gun

Excellent question Russty. Is Gawn threatening to pump out a huge score? Not from what I have seen. Will he get injured again? For mine you only go to someone you know will score much higher. Wait a week and reassess.

Mattyboy

How much is a trade worth in $$$ this time of the year?

I can make $130K for 1 trade is it worth it?

Have 10 trade left.

Mattyboy

oops 8 after this week 🙂

Randomcliche

They are exponentially more valuable he says with 2 trades left.

Dean

With 8 trades left after round 16 your doing well.

Typically a trade is worth about $150k – However with 8 trades left you can afford to trade.

Winter

Trade out Newman or Shaw for Lloyd ?????

Finnius123

Shaw definitely

Deeboss

Hannan OUT Gawn IN
Shaw OUT Witherden IN

4 Trades left, $499K in the kitty…

Tyruddanaut

If you've got that little of trades and that high of money do t get Witherden but get a good premo defender

Finnius123

agreed

Deeboss

I'm swinging Lloyd to DEF and Witherden in the MID, my backline is done…. Doch, Roberton, Laird, Adams, Hibberd, Lloyd. EMG Ryan, Hibberd.

GloryDays90

Dont bother with the cash. You dont need it. Get in some Premo calibre players

hedski

Nice debut Lek, sweet as always Jock.
I'm with Kev, Roo cull this week he's falling apart, Yeo in.

LEKD0G

Thanks maaaaate

matthewspangher

whos a better duo to have, gawn and nank, or grundy and toby greene? cheers

Randomcliche2

Gawn and Nank. Greene is a 10 on the floggometer….I pray to the supercoach gods each year there are enough viable alternatives forward to not have to run him. I pray that Lids gets his calf right to steal Greene's points 😛

jez_m

Just because he's a flog doesn't mean he's not a good SuperCoach player.

BlueNath

It's crazy, but I can't select Green for the same reason – flog

Defying_Madness

We all chose Adams willingly though?

Seeker

Greene hasn't trained this week after being a late out last weekend and Foxfooty are reporting he's an unlikely starter for this round, too.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Bugg squashed.
6 weeks.

Russty_

Much deserved.

hedski

6 down to 5 I thought would have been fair, less force in the hit than Bashers.

Top Gun

Dog act especially as it was four minutes into the game. Deserved 6.

JohndJames

So the next player,whoever he is that hits his opponent in the head and pleads guilty,better get six as well.No star treatment in other words,where they get less weeks because they are a name player.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Yep no favors.
If you punch someone in the head when they are not looking no mater who.you r that is a pretty low act and should get at least a six week holiday.

rex

Hannan to Yeo
SPP to Dusty
???? any ideas which will be better in the long run

redherringfc

Dusty, by a mile.

Top Gun

Dusty is a game changer.

Stirlsy

Great show Jock and LEK
But how do i sleep with no bed time story???

hedski

Pyanmanese bedtime story 2.0

The boy who cried wolf….

Derek

Images of Lekdog with no shirt, no one will be getting any sleep tonight

Mitch

Def
Simpson/rance/laird/hibberd/newman/jj (ryan, scharanberg)

Mid
Zorko, neale, oliver, bont, sloane, r. Gray, fyfe, s selwood (spp, mountford, cousins)

Ruck
Grundy, witts (strnadica)

Fwd
Yeo, heeney, macrae, kennedy, dahlhaus, lynch (greenwood, bolton)

6 trades 181k

Was thinking scharanberg to witherden and spp to cripps or dusty which leaves me with my only rookie as newman. Should i prioritise newman over spp so i can move scooter to m9?

SC adviser

Only 6 trades left.

jeez, it will be very tough to save that side.

Mitch

First year sc, plenty of lessons learnt

BlueNath

I think you need to be very careful with your trades. schaz should be back this week or next… hold. I would do SPP to Witherden. Then in two weeks swap Selwood for his brother. That leave you with 4 trades with 4 rounds to go and some cash to splash too

Top Gun

I would be inclined to go Cousins to Witherden and leave it at that.

davo

I would just upgrade selwood to a premium using the money in the bank and hold on to remaining trades for injury

Randomcliche2

No Danger, no Doc, (and Adams most weeks) its got be tough starting without them against the better teams…..but I'm sure you know that…. Newman, Scooter, Witts and perhaps JJ are ones that perhaps need work (there would be debate around that…). But with 6 trades left….I'd be looking at setting up a DPP mid/def swing set with Taylor Adams, he is cheap now, might stay that way for 2 more weeks, but not much longer. It'll only cost 110k to do it this week. SPP to Adams. Then when injury strikes a premo down back, or after a rookie BE is close to their average, just go Ryan or Scharanberg to Junker, swing Adams in to Def.

I'd also look at Witts to Gawn, there is upside there if he ups his game time…. very little downside risk.

That leaves 3 trades left, look at Scooter to Rocky/Jelwood/Danger(lol) with the cash from (Ryan/Scharanberg downgrade). Then loop the flower out of it for the rest of the season and hope there are no more than 2 season ending LTIs. (You can cover a 3-4 week injury with Greenwood/JJ/Newman etc).

Cheers

dane

i have 5 trades left,
is it worth bringing in witherdern to bank some cash.
then in a week trade greenwood – gawn, so that i can bench either nankervis/higgins as F6,F7

leaving me with 3 trades left.

ranked 600th overall

BlueNath

It's super risky, but you are ranked so highly I think you needs to hang your balls out there and go for it!

Swans2012

Logical, builds cover and scoring potential

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Mate being that close to the pinnacle what have you got to loose?
Go hard or go home
Best of luck.
Would think most up the top end would be low on trades

Randomcliche2

Do it!
Yours sincerely
Grasshopper

TheGreatBozza

Do it Dane! As the others have said it's a risk you need to take to maintain your high ranking. As good as Greenwood as been, Gawn is an elite of the game

InTheNickofTime

Honestly I would bring in Kreisler instead if you're able and trade one of of the others as they're not performing quite as well, Greenwood has proven himself much more reliable and has a lot more cash to make.

InTheNickofTime

Kreuzer*

FiL

Hi guys, I went with a midprice madness team this year and it has worked out really well. Ranked about $5k but I feel like I'm in a better position than I've ever been at the same point of the season. Pay attention to my bench! Would love to know your thoughts.

Backs: Docherty, Adams, Laird, Howe, Lloyd, Shaw (Touhy, Witherden)
Mids: Dangefield, T Mitchell, Pendlebury, Oliver, Murphy, M Crouch, Hannebery, Fyfe (Greenwood, Witherden, C Brown)
Rucks: Gawn, Goldy (Strnadica)
Fwds: Yeo, Dahlhaus, Buddy, Ryder, Nank, Wingard (Higgins, Eddy).

I have five trades left after this round and $179,000 in the kitty. WIll go Greenwood to Joel Selwood soon! After that hold trades (although I have good cover all round so not quite as important).

BlueNath

Impressive. Especially as you have been able to select Witherden twice!!

Derek

Maybe he can fit another Docherty in

Randomcliche2

With a team like that I'd hope your rank was a bit higher…..but as for building a team for league finals job well done. Similar strategy to mine for what its worth….full premo +2 or more starting midpriced madness… .http://imgur.com/S12Nf3S cheers

FiL

Yeah I was hoping to be right up there in the rankings and then just hold on as best I could, assuming I would miss out on some of the very top line premos. But oh well. You have to remember all the burn men along the way who underperformed and kept me from really doing well. Jaeger, Roughy, Swallow, Kade Kolo, Callum Mills. Had all of em to start with.
Luckily Murphy and Oliver and a few others have proven to be keepers.
I didn't start with Docherty, Laird, Adams, Yeo, Gawn, Goldy, Pendles or Hannebery so their scores have only helped me more recently.

Thinking I will do well in league finals by having premo bench loophole options on every line — Touhy, Fyfe and Higgins

Defying_Madness

Consider getting Junker in your team over Witherden. Would allow you to loophole your bench players in case they score better than your premos.

Top Gun

Big decision to make so suggestions would be helpful…. ranked 146 but only with 4 trades left.

Do i trade Scooter to Dusty and SPP to Witherden and hang the gonads on the line or keep Scooter and hang on.

BlueNath

If you do the trades you have a chance to cover yourself in glory. Or you can be conservative now and finish a respectable 500-1000th position. I know what a top gun would do

TRIGGA_HAPPY

C'mon topgun take a ride into the danger zone!
Gr8 trades bang bang
I bet you didn't get your rank by being conservative so why start now? Worked a treat so far.
follow your gut.
Best of luck.

Bad_News_Brown

Use your ballbags and show some big time domination – make the trade – Dusty is a lock

Top Gun

Thanks guys. My heart says you're here forge into that top 100; my head says wtf are you thinking. Haha.

Derek

Is Scooter and SPP at M8 and M9?

I'm not sure about Scooters injury. If he is playing, I would be tempted to hold trades for now. Still long way to go. Loop them and see how you go for a few weeks, it might cost you a few points per week (or not), but only having 2 trades with 7 weeks to go, I just know what will happen.

Top Gun

Yep Scooter at M8 and SPP at M9. Have been looping Greenwood or SPP depending on whether I need Greenwood forward or midfield. Does look good with Dusty, Danger, Neale, Bont, Pendles, Kennedy, Treloar and Oliver though. It is a tough call.

KrazeeEyezK1lla

no brainer. just think, the teams above you are probably doing similar trades this week to strengthen their teams

Sham

That's sounds like a good trade to me not as much risk as you think

bdog

Hey i have 4 trades left 20k in bank are there any trades you would do this week or next?

DEF S. Docherty T. Adams R. Laird J. Lloyd N. Newman M Hibberd (J. Johannisen Scharenberg )
MID Dangerfield T Mitchell Pendlebury Bontempelli Sloane Oliver Kelly J Selwood ( Greenwood Witherden Hibberd)
RUC Grundy Gawn (Strnadica)
FOR Dahlhaus Macrae Heeney Greene Wingard Yeo ( Nankervis Ainsworth)

Thanks for Reading

bdog

Also I have already made one trade going Berry to Gawn This week

Bad_News_Brown

nice team brother. I'd hold those 4 trades for when you need em.

Derek

A team like that would have you in the top 10 overall and valued at about $15mil………hmmmmmmmm

Top Gun

Was thinking the same especially with JJ and Nank on the bench. Hmmm indeed.

Bdog

Team is definitely real currently in the 80 hoping to crack the top 20 by seasons end team is valued at 13 and a half mil

Sham

I'd look at trying to turn Sloane or Oliver to dusty if I was you well done you've put together a great looking side

Randomcliche2

Bloody nice team. Oliver to Rocky after rocky tonnes it up next….nothing right now….

BrownlowBoy

Anyone looking for a defensive POD, Hurley is an option.

Bad_News_Brown

Agreed – don't know why these folk don't talk about him, he's more of a lock than a Tui, Robertson or Hibberd imho

Top Gun

Shhh. I already have him

badnewsbrown

Peppa Pig to make Tom Lynch at F7 via Greenwood is the mightiest swing which makes Greenwood my M9 – Love it

Derek

Do you have another DPP on your forward line, ie Brown or Bolton?

UpTheLions

Nank to darcy for R2 will leave me with 4 trades but also $316k should I go through with it?

SC_Kev7

Assuming your team is done I don't see the point of having 300k in the bank at this point in the season.

I like Darcy but he's flavour of the month right now. If you have a R/F at R3 I'd pick your weakest fwd to trade out, swing Nank forward and get Darcy in. That way if Darcy begins to run out of steam Nank will be there to save your bacon

Derek

Going backwards. Try and upgrade your team.

B T

Yep, I agree with Derek.

Jordan

What's better 4 trades at full premium with witherdon as cover/loophole in defence
Or
5 trades left at full premium with no defence cover (McInnes and smith)

Bad_News_Brown

depends on the rest of your team, the amount of cash you have left, what swings you have, who is your D6 and what the weather is like on the weekend.

It's like asking what's better? a Blue ford or a brown Holden.

Top Gun

Holden. Lol

pointschasingdevil

Obviously the Ford there's no such thing as a holden They're extinct

Derek

Great Casting of the Pod gentlemen.

Best piece of advice from the Podcast for all the young players is worry about the on field rookies first. Luxury trades second, Lekdogs chest hair last.

People should only be thinking about trading out Fyfe, Shaw, Nank, Priddis etc if they don't have any rookies still on their field. Talking about Greenwood, Parsons, Newman, SPP, SSelwood types. They must be upgraded first.

If and when that is done do we look at the sideways and luxury trades.

H Lee

rate that derek! but with the form of newman and greenwood and them still rising in cash, maybe worth doing some sneaking sideways trading if good options are available (and trades permitting)

Finnius123

agreed. I would be trading Fyfe before Greenwood.

Leeds17

Sounds crazy Ive been thinking about bringing a rookie on field… Witherden for Newman.

Also a little tempted to bring De Goey in for cover in the mids and forward line, strikes me as a young player like we've seen have a breakout finish to a season before.

Long odds to happen though but under consideration

Derek

its nice to have crazy thoughts like that every now and then

pointschasingdevil

what if your onfield rookie is greenwood and you have a hasbeen spud like riewaldt clogging up your forward line?

IntheNickofTime

I know it seems obvious, but who out of Priddis and Fyfe would you get rid of first? Priddis thoroughly underwhelming whilst defeats the purpose of a POD, and even though Fyfe is well under his best he's still scraping a semi-acceptable average, as long as he can stay on the park. All of this comes down to a lack of trades, of course. WC have a decent run at Domain for the rest of the season. Thoughts?

Finnius123

Priddis first I reckon. He is just looking too slow.

Northerner

Priddis rested last week for General Soreness. He's clearly been carrying something, maybe that back problem he had the op on? I'd wait one more week and see if the rest has helped him. WC are playing a more aggressive pressure brand since the bye which is suited to Priddis when at his best, so hold one more week for mine.

Finnius123

I want to bring in parker for Fyfe this week fellas but do you think that 5 sydney players onfield is too many?

KrazeeEyezK1lla

I've got Newman, Lloyd, JPK, Heeney and Buddy. has been alright for the most part. swannies on the march. do it

Derek

won't be alot of difference between fyfe and Parker. don't think the trade is worth it

GloryDays90

He is a great player and could turn into a great POD. You could do a lot worse by going Grey or Wines like a lot of people did a few weeks ago.

Finnius123

What is everyone's thought on Jarrod Lyons as a serious POD? 5 rd average of 112 and kindly priced at 510k AND in only 0.4% of teams. I know it sounds crazy but could actually be a decent option for the run home.

Russty_

Better off going for Parker I reckon Finn…$510k, averaging 112 last 3 games.

Finnius123

surely 5 sydney players is too many though – they can't all get points every game. Buddy, Lloyd, JPK, Newman AND Parker I reckon is just a bridge too far.

Defying_Madness

Yeah I wouldn't recommend too many Swans players. I have Heeney, Buddy, Hanners, JPK and Lloyd and each week one of them spuds it up

Juzzy

Actually don't mind it Finnius.
A couple of weeks back put him in the mental notes for next year but he keeps backing up.
Could be a great POD.

James T

Lyons is a great POD but a huge risk. Gold Coast too inconsistent as a team lets him down. I would highly consider Lachy Whitfield instead, much more consistant team in GWS. And also I already have 5 Sydney players in Heeney, Buddy, JPK, Lloyd and Newman.. and I'm still considering Parks hahaha

Northerner

Lyons is becoming their reliable engine and first choice centre bounce mid. Some risk, but I think the PoD makes it attractive. Personally though I prefer Cripps who also has relatively low ownership and this will be the last week to get him before his price is at overs. We know he will become a SC beast of near Danger proportions given the way he finished last year and it looks like he's made up now for his lack of pre season.

Juzzy

Hi Community.
I am considering Witherden as a must for cash generation this week. The only logical trade for me(and I have considered them all) is swinging Greenwood fwd and trading out Parsons for him. Cool … but …
I just checked the draw and, barring injury, he will never get a game in my team. I can't loop him at least until round 20.

I shall feel bad telling him in a four or so weeks that he is getting traded out for a cheap dpp, rookie listed kid.

Daniel

Going Parsons to Witherden this week, who should I trade out to bring in Gawn out of Newman (D7), Fyfe (M8), Gray (M9), Lynch or Nankervis (F5-6)?

Joshua

Scooter to Witherden (extra cash) or Scharenberg to Witherden (loophole him and Shaw at D6)?
Hibberd is in MID if that makes any difference, also only trade I'm looking at making is Greenwood to Jelwood which won't require much cash anyway.

SC_Kev7

Like the loop option with Hibberd in your mids

Brenton

Do I go jack steven or fyfe to either dusty or Neale

Finnius123

fyfe to dusty – most points gained

Sonny

Community,

I have 3 trades left & require 2 upgrades with $0.00 in the bank.

What are your thoughts on the following – madness or genious?

Dangerfield = Jetta
Stewart = Lynch
Stewart = Lloyd

Dave

Dont be an idiot

Dave

If you are serious, then it would benefit your team a lot more if you hold the trades for the inevitable injuries that will come. Dangerfield is worth two of any other player, so please don't trade him. Let your team mature and you might be able to upgrade players such as greenwood later on using only one trade. All the best

Sonny

Thanks for advice Dave!

Daniel

This is a masterstorke. Jock should put you on the PODCAST, you could take over Wayno from last season mate.

Eddy

Danger will pull a dick muscle this week

Derek

its nice to think crazy every once in a while.

Just upgrade Stewart (cats) to who ever you can afford and hold the other two trades.

Sonny

Thanks Derek!

Randomcliche2

For the love if god….Nooooo! You know its better to upgrade rookies, 1 down 2 up…..but look to pick off Jelwood or Rocky in a few weeks if were serious about selling danger. So you could do 1 sideways and 2 upgrades with your last 3 trades. But those last 2 trades you'll need for injuries….they are coming…

Jesus'

Mate whatever you are smoking, give me some cos my team is gone for the year!!! What a terrible year for coaches. Could use a few frothies.. Cheers. Catch ya later. Im off now. Bye

Tommo09

Fyfe/Scooter for Rocky/Gaz??

Dave

I still rate rocky and expect him to come good

Derek

Scooter >> Gaz.

Harry Whodidnot

Best 2 trades I have seen so far this week. Nice timing Tommo

Tommo09

Which one this week?
The other will be next week

Dave

Is it worth trading either Stef Martin or Goldy to get Gawn?
Going for overall and only have 4 trades left.

Daniel

ID TRADE GOLDI FOR SURE MATE

KrazeeEyezK1lla

keep Martin. north no chance of finals, so can see them trying to get experience into younger players toward the end of the year, eg: preuss

Dave

Goldstein up against a sandiless freo this week, but I know gawn will go big for the rest of the year. So yeah goodbye goldy

Derek

only 4 trades. you gotta hold

INPieman

Probably best to save those 4 trades for injuries with 8 weeks to go

Mick

Hold for a week at least

GloryDays90

Why would you bother… both a great rucks…

Dave

Because goldy will likely average 98, and i its my bet that gawn will be back to averaging 118 or even more.

Thats a 20 point increase.

Think i could live with 3 trades for injuries from here on.

murray

Anyone contemplating bringing in Darcy as R2!! he certainly appears to be able to man up and compete
would be a ballsy move,
It actually suits my structures and trades for me to do this,
I would trade out hannan for Darcy via Sterndica swing and would create a cash pool of 295K
I would have 7 trades left, it is intended to eventually trade Darcy in 4-5 weeks for a premo ruck when he is ripe for the plucking

any one else considering this move OR am I just crazy to do it let alone think about it?

Derek

the only way i would consider it would be if you had Ryder/nank in your forward line at F7, you played Darcy at R3 with E. If he didn't score well you swing Ryder/Nank into R2.

Only problem with that is fremantle have alot of late games so darcy will play after Ryder/Nank most weeks

murray

Hi Derek
very high risk but I think Darcy could score ok, Lyonhas indicated Darcy will be Frem no. 1 ruck

murray

yes

pointschasingdevil

50% of his scores so far have been below 51. Losers move to have him onfield at this time of year

murray

I am going by his latest score of 99, even if he avearged 80 from here on, that would be worth the punt on a 117k player

GloryDays90

Higgins to Yeo hands down. Witts is really consistant and if your other ruck is good then you dont need gawn. Plus a lot of people may trade witts out so he could become a POD

murray

finnius your on the same wavelength as me

Mike

Im doing it

Good luck

Hi community, I need your thoughts.
What's the more important trade?
Witts to Gawn or Higgins to Yeo this weekend.
Still have 8 trades and 240k in th pocket.
Cheers in advance.

Finnius123

with 8 trades I would be tempted to do both

DacZawson

Higgins to Yeo personally

Derek

considering Higgos theory, gawn every day of the week. You will be getting him cheaper than his starting price, where if you get Yeo, you are paying alot more than most other people.

gawn is way unders, where yeo is full price

Randomcliche2

Both, but I'd expect Yeo-Higgins to be bigger than Gawn-Witts…..it might take Gawn another 2-4 weeks to really get going, I'm not sold that after a fortnight he's ready to go bang, extra 10% game time and smash out big scores….though they'll come before the year is out… but if you are just focused on leagues and are only doing one for some reason……Gawn…he'll be firing come finals time….

daz

Ive never been so torn on a trade to keep Fyfe or trade,the squad is done with 7 trades left,Haven't sideways once this year, I'm sure many other people feel the same not being able to pull the trigger, Down to Cripps or Mitchell- will take 2 trades which il get witherden is anyone else feel the same? ranked 1k overall top 500 is goal and have a few cash leagues to think about.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

As per the pod cast u would make that change
Ross Lyin has come our and said Fyfe will play forward for the rest of the year.
I wouldn't even be surprised when Freo can't make the finals they put him in cotton wool and concentrate on contract talks

Northerner

Yes. Fyfe to Cripps for me, but I have cash for one trade as I got Witherden last week because I needed his DPP.

Pointschasingdevil

Big scores from the Blues mids this week, assisted by some big defensive outs at the Dee's

Gjlane123

Who to get as last upgrade for full premium team Rance or Adams ? Concerned Adams has never lasted a season before.

SC Connoisseur

G Ablett:

Avg VS Syd since 2007: 157.3 from 10 (low of 99 and a high of 254, 1/10 below 100, 9/10 120+, 5/10 150+, 3/10 170+, 2/10 200+, 1/10 250+)

INPieman

Hope he can keep that up. A 254 would be appreciated

Dice

Great info there

Swans2012

THey are lethal stats, I particularly like 9/10 120+ and a 50/50 chance of 150+!

KrazeeEyezK1lla

but can he cope with the George Hewett tag?

Finnius123

Thoughts on Sandi to Darcy and leaving him at R3 to loop with nank (possible four times). Means always fielding lynch and not loopholing him, however it means I can turn Daniel Lloyd into any mid that I want (probably Titch or Neale) and slide fyfe to M9. It give me ruck, forward and midfield cover in case of emergencies, and I will probably need it considering I will only have two trades left.

If Fyfe and Nank average about the same from here-on in, which I think they will, my points benefit comes from the assumption that titch will average more than Gawn for the rest of the year. This trade leaves me with extra cover everywhere as well, so it isn't a sideway trade, rather an 'upgrade' of sorts. Its all about PPR and I want to know whether you guys think I will be making up enough points per round (10+) to warrant this.

My other option is the obvious sandi to Gawn.

Here is my team for anyone interested:

Doch, Laird, Howe, Hibberd, Lloyd, Newman (Ryan and Scharenburg)

Danger, Zerrett, Zorko, Bont, JPK, Treloar, Jelwood, Fyfe (Lloyd, Bolton, Cousins)

Yeo, Macrae, Dahl, Buddy, Nank, Lynch (Greenwood, Brown)

TheGreatBozza

It's a ballsy move, especially with two trades left. Go for it, it'll make your run home exciting

Finnius123

That's for sure. I am playing for rank and currently about 2500th, so I can't win it and may as well die trying.

murray

what about R2 Finnius. that would be high risk but high reward

Finnius123

Well my plan is to loophole with Darcy and Lynch. If I leave Lynch with the E on and he scores lower than what I expect Darcy to get, I can swing nank into the forward line and put Darcy at R2. If Lynch does well then I will back Nankdaddy in, because Nank would be my F6/F7 loop with Lynch anyway.

Each way bet, I like it

Gearing up for finals as I'm sitting one game clear in fourth in my cash league (despite scoring the most points this season):
12 trades, 30.7K bank

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

My plans for now are:

SPP > Witherden
Sandi > Gawn

Any other moves I should consider instead? I'm holding Scooter pending an injury update as I want that last ounce of value out of him, whereas SPP has maxed out

red5

I'm doing the exact same thing.
I thought about going down from Sandi to Sean Darcy as I have Vardy and Witts but went with Gawn instead.
who are you upgrading to next week?

Dalvin

Trading Sandi to Gawn
Full premium (with Fyfe)
I have greenwood and parsons in forward line, considering trading parsons to darcy via strandica
Allows me to loophole greenwood using strandica and 280 in bank with 4 trades left

Question is so I do the parsons to darcy trade for 159k and ability to loophole greenwood in forward line, or hold and have 5 trades

Luke

2 x M9's Scooter (BE 105 injured/injury history) and SPP (BE 65 injury free)…one has to go for Witherden…..only 4 trades left but need money in the kitty and need to open up DEF/MID swingset….who goes?

Finnius123

Dusty, Titch, Neale or Cripps?

jez_m

In this order for mine – Dusty, Titch (just), Cripps, Neale

SC Connoisseur

N Fyfe:
Avg VS NM since 2011: 127.5 from 8 (low of 94 and a high of 164, 1/8 below 100, 6/8 120+, 2/8 140+)

INPieman

A 94 would be decent from Fyfe ATM

Jim_bob321

What do u fellas think?
Sandilands to Darcy
Then going SPP/Scooter to a premo mid…
Leaves me with roughly 750ishk
Any premo mid options would be greatly appreciated
Thinking of either Mitchell or Neale but want the community's advice.
Cheers

Joe T

Can't go past Mitchell for consistency and Neale's output may be effected with no Sandi

Stefan Valensisi

Will an unproven rookie last as your R2 for the rest of the season?
If you think so, I'd go Mitchell or possibly wait for someone like Jelwood to heavily drop in price.

Jim_bob321

Swing Nank into R2… maybe upgrade him to gawn next week

Northerner

I'm torn between 2 options. Help please.

I think Darcy provides an interesting option for us this week. With Sandi down his JS is excellent and his TOG will only go up. I think he presents as a very unsusual and incredibly timed R3 option.

I have Strnadica currently as R3 as my C loophole and looped with Nank as ruck backup.

Now, Nank will not be top 6 forward.

C loopholing in rucks is easier than forwards and you have 2 players rather than six worth of late out risk. However no late out cover in Rucks.

So option 1 is do nothing and keep Nank, hopefully getting him to F7 and ruck cover; or

Option 2. Darcy in at R3, trade Nank for Top 6 FWD.

Option 1 has no late outs cover, but easier to C loophole with only 2 player late out risk.

Option 2 has late out cover for rucks, but is harder to loop without increasing late out risk with 6 players in fwd line.

I'm leaning toward option 2.

Thoughts very welcome.

So, option 1.

jez_m

JJK is definitely worth a look in the next few weeks for those who still have Nank. $480K with a BE of 158, and now his ownership has more than halved since his injury (21.2% down to 10.2%)

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Big G

TRIGGA_HAPPY

manolaki

How do you know

Russty_

I read this also on Herald Sun website.

Derek

Yep. Greene Out

manolaki

FArk just put him in 2 weeks ago he plays one game and out

jez_m

Wait until teams are named, but if Greene misses again I'd go Heeney

Don't Blush Baby

Herald Sun Breaking News – A current and a formal AFL being investigated for a serious matter ? Anyone got ant info ?

TRIGGA_HAPPY

tom boyd has been diagnosed with depression

gator59

Geez i'd get depression if i was only earning 1 mill a year too..lol

jez_m

That's a pretty ignorant comment Gator. Depression isn't based on how much money you earn.

BlueNath

Just a business deal gone bad

Russty_

Ty Vickery and Jake King apparently been arrested for extortion…wow!

Willymack1234

Worth going Heater to lloyd with 5 trades left?

jez_m

Tough one. If the rest of your team is complete I'd consider it. If not, hold trades for later.

Ja191

any idea if the jelwood brothers will be back? joel most likely will, dont know about scooter though.
