Heroes-Villians-Damned

Abracadabra. Hocus Pocus.

Zorko the Magnificent pulled a rabbit out of the hat on Saturday night when he amassed a monster 196 SC points in phenomenal performance.

The little Brisbane magician had all the tricks with 36 disposals, 12 tackles, 4 goals and 10 clearances in a masterful display.

Zorko’s entertainment show was the highlight of Round 16, along with sensational outings from Patrick Dangerfield and Seb Ross.

It was somewhat of a mercurial round for many coaches, with 2250 around par.

The Heroes

Dayne Zorko (196 SC) narrowly missed the 200-mark in one of the great games by a player in a losing team. The massive outing all but eliminates his 54 from two weeks ago and ensures, unfortunately, that many coaches will be unable to pick him up cheaply. His price sits at $586,700 and will only rise again in the coming weeks.

Geelong had a field day against Zorko’s Brisbane, headlined by (surprise, surprise) Patrick Dangerfield (165 SC). The birth of his first child only seemed to elevate Danger’s game to another level as he gathered 38 touches, 10 clearances, 9 marks and kicked 3.1. He got plenty of help from his Cats teammates with Mitch Duncan (144 SC), Mark Blicavs (137 SC), Joel Selwood (120 SC) and Lachie Henderson (120 SC) all joining in on the fun.

It has been a stunning emergence from Saints hardman Seb Ross (151 SC) this season. After scoring a disappointing 36 in Round 1, Ross has racked up a prolific 11 tons from his next 14 games, highlighted by his brilliant score in St Kilda’s mauling of Richmond. Seb has lifted his output from last year by 11 points per game and is averaging 105.8 in 2017. He had 33 possessions, 8 tackles and a goal on Saturday night.

Blues duo Sam Docherty (142 SC) and Marc Murphy (141 SC) were in imperious form during Carlton’s narrow loss to Melbourne, while GWS pair Callan Ward (136 SC) and Josh Kelly (134 SC) were in formidable touch for the Giants, compiling 66 possessions, 18 tackles and 16 clearances between them, as well 2 goals.

The consistency of Tom Mitchell (130 SC) has been something to admire this season. The ball-magnet’s numbers have been extremely reliable in 2017, with only one score under 100 (an 85 in Round 4) for an average of 116.6. Mitchell racked up another 39 disposals in Hawthorn’s draw with GWS, as well as 9 tackles and 10 clearances.

Imagine Todd Goldstein’s (129 SC) score if he kicked that match-winning goal on Sunday afternoon. Still a decent effort by the big man, though. The same can be said for Port’s Paddy Ryder (129 SC), who took West Coast’s ruckmen to the cleaners at Domain Stadium, with 39 hit outs and two goals. Ryder is in a rich vein of form at the moment, averaging 115 in his past four matches.

Other significant scores: Justin Westhoff (136 SC), Connor Blakely (129 SC), Toby McLean (123 SC) and David Zaharakis (120 SC).

The Villains

Dustin Martin (71 SC) has been superb this season but, just like most of his side, he didn’t really turn up against St Kilda on Saturday night. Ditto Trent Cotchin (71 SC). Adam Treloar (61 SC) returned to his bad habits of earlier in the season, while Dayne Beams (58 SC) was ordinary in his comeback from yet another injury.

Many popular defensive options let their owners down, with Jake Lloyd (82 SC), Taylor Adams (80 SC), Dylan Roberton (79 SC), Zach Tuohy (73 SC), Jason Johannisen (71 SC), Michael Hibberd (64 SC) and Jarrod Harbrow (56 SC) all performing below expectations. Except maybe JJ, who was about par.

The same can be said for ruckmen this round. Stef Martin (57 SC) went at just 37% efficiency, while Max Gawn (80 SC), Brodie Grundy (80 SC), Sam Jacobs (64 SC) and Shane Mumford (61 SC) were also well down on their usual output.

Forwards weren’t immune to the carnage, either. Tom Lynch (82 SC), Toby Nankervis (81 SC), Jack Steele (74 SC), Luke Dahlhaus (64 SC) and Jack Billings (57 SC) were all quiet.

The Redeemers

Rejoice, Nat Fyfe (139 SC) owners. Finally a score of substance from Nathanial. Many traded out Fyfe after becoming frustrated with his mediocrity, so those who loyally held him would have been wrapped. He had 33 disposals, 18 of them contested, 12 clearances and a goal to help Freo get over the line.

After two consecutive scores of 72, Rory Laird (119 SC) was back to his best for the Crows on Friday night. The dynamic half back had 32 possessions at a precise 87% efficiency, as well as 12 marks.  Teammate Taylor Walker (133 SC) finally provided his loyal owners with some respite, booting 3.1 on his way to his best score since Round 3.

The resurgence of Luke Parker (109 SC) continued for Sydney on Saturday. Parker was averaging a paltry 90.1 before his round 11 bye, but since having that week off his lowest score has been 104. He is averaging 110 post byes and looks to be coming home strong.

St Kilda trio Nick Riewoldt (116 SC), Jack Steven (115 SC) and Leigh Montagna (102 SC) have been a little off in their past couple of games but they were back with a bang on Saturday night to be three of their side’s best players.

What a roller-coaster for Robbie Gray (110 SC) owners. These are his numbers so far this year: 38, 168, 92, 69, 139, 111, 30, 76, 104, 44, 85, 129, 146, 45, 110. Four scores 125+ and four scores -45. Madness.

David Swallow (132 SC) was hyped as one of the value picks of 2017 but Saturday was his first score of substance all season. 18 of his 29 touches were contested and he had 9 clearances.

The Prodigies

It was a pretty good week from the young guns.

Those still holding the likes of Charlie Curnow (118 SC), Sam Petrevski-Seton (101 SC), James Parsons (98 SC), Andy Otten (94 SC), Dan Houston (91 SC), Andrew McGrath (90 SC), Jarrod Berry (85 SC), Will Hoskin Elliott (82 SC) and Nic Newman (80 SC) would have been pleased.

Zach Guthrie (54 SC), Wylie Buzza (43 SC), Ciaran Sheenan (42 SC), Joel Smith (34 SC) and Tyson Stengle (30 SC) are all on the bubble this week, but none of them have done anything to suggest they can be relied upon on field.

Ryan Nyhuis (78 SC) was the standout debutant, booting four goals, but don’t expect that sort of output from him every week. Daniel Nielson (58 SC) and Joe Atley (45 SC) were others to play their first games.

Defenders Luke Ryan (91 SC) and Alex Witherden (74 SC), as well as ruckman Sean Darcy (71 SC), are really blossoming and should make their owners some decent coin.

Other rookie scores: James Stewart (75 SC), Lewis Melican (74 SC), Mitchell Hibberd (72 SC),  Brandon Parfitt (71 SC), Harry Perryman (70 SC), Mitch Hannan (70 SC), Jack Bowes (69 SC), David Meyers (69 SC), Zac Fisher (64 SC), Brennan Cox (61 SC), Ben Long (58 SC), Matthew Scharenberg (57 SC), Declan Mountford (57 SC), Ryan Schoenmakers (56 SC), Hugh McCluggage (55 SC), Blake Hardwick (50 SC), Josh Thomas (46 SC), Oliver Florent (45 SC), Daniel Lloyd (44 SC), Harrison Macreadie (41 SC), Daniel Butler (36 SC) and Ben Ainsworth (23 SC).

The Damned

Matt Priddis (72 SC) is not the player he once was. The inclusion of Sam Mitchell into the West Coast midfield has clearly hindered his output. He’s averaging a hideous 93 for the season and hasn’t tonned up since Round 8. He must be moved on.

Mitch Wallis (65 SC) was touted as a possible forward line savour when he returned from injury with scores of 132 and 89. Many bought in to Wallis, but they would now be cursing that decision, with the Bulldog registering scores of 76, 66 and 65 in his past three outings. Playing as a permanent forward, it’s hard to see Wallis generating any massive totals any time soon.   

A decision to got off the piss pre season could quite possibly the worst call Dan Hannebery (73 SC) has ever made. On the surface it seemed like a good move, but Hanners’ returns in 2017 have proved otherwise. The usually consistent midfielder now has five scores of 75 or less next to his name this season and has not hit three figures in his past four matches. The common sense thing to do for his owners must be to hold, but there’s no doubt he would be testing the patience of many.

Patrick Cripps (25 SC) went down with a nasty-looking leg injury and may need to be traded depending on the prognosis.

How did you go this week?

I'm right up at the pointy end and wondering if it's worth trading out an underperformer like treloar or
Bont to an in form pod like Ward or Seb Ross to make up some more ground, any thoughts?

    Hand Candy FC · 10/07/2017 at 14:55

    Unless you're desperate for league wins, or actually within realistic striking distance of overall leaders, hold until finals and re-assess.

      HallyMate · 10/07/2017 at 14:59

      So if I'm top 50 do you think it's worth a trade

        See My Baseball? · 10/07/2017 at 15:56

        i'm top 100 and pulling the trigger on treloar. go for it is my advice. try and save a couple of trades if you can but don't die wondering either

          HallyMate · 10/07/2017 at 16:23

          It's very tempting, just who to trade out and who for is the million dollar question

            Whatyasmokin · 10/07/2017 at 16:43

            Id get rid of treloar, then again after all the scrutiny in the media do collingwood bounce back. Seb Ross is killing it and looked to be hitting elite level at times last year. Ward hitting good form. Back your gut.

        Hutto76 · 10/07/2017 at 16:09

        I feel your pain mate. I just snuck into 8th overall this week and I'm having heart palpitations mixed with a near nervous breakdown trying to work out what do do next!

        To answer your question, there is no right answer. Treloar and Bont are just as likely to have a day out as Ross and Ward are to have a quiet week. Maybe it is worth it, given that the Saints and GWS will more than likely finish higher than Collingwood and the Dogs? Listen to the podcast, wait for team selections and go with your gut! Whatever you have been doing is clearly paying off!

          HallyMate · 10/07/2017 at 16:23

          Congratulations Hutto that's an insane effort! The way the dogs and Collingwood are playing have made me lose all faith in their players but I know as soon as I trade out one of them they'll smash out a 140! Guess it'll come down to how I feel Friday

          INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 17:05

          Good luck Hutto. Awesome effort

            Hutto76 · 10/07/2017 at 18:23

            Thanks mate. It's a full credit to yourself and the rest of the community, that you've been able to take a rugby league covert a few years back, from having more success picking his nose than a Supercoach team, to being at very least competitive this year! Thanks you mob!

          Derek · 10/07/2017 at 17:48

          fantastic effort. What is your team looking like?

            Hutto76 · 10/07/2017 at 19:00

            Thanks mate. Looking ok I guess. At 22 potential keepers on field plus 1 on the bench. 2 intentional non-players for loophole purposes. 8 trades left at this stage with 70K in the kitty! Aiming for a keeper on the bench in all 3 major lines in coming into the finals with swing-sets across all lines, barring injury or suspension.

          PaulK · 10/07/2017 at 18:00

          Stole my spot!
          I slid from 8th to 13th this week. Had a pretty average week this week bringing in Dusty. Treloar, Rance, Dahl, Hibberd a few of my villains. JPK, Greene and Greenwood outs hurt the average also.

          Good work!
          This week I wanted to go Newman to Hurley, but just shy on cash.
          I'm going to hold on Treloar. Another week and Selwood could be worth squeezing in the MID somewhere also.

            Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 18:22

            Nice job Paul K…go for glory mate, great rank to finish strong from.

            Hutto76 · 10/07/2017 at 18:39

            Nice work there too mate! Great name too btw! It's awesome to see so many community members near the top of the comp! The JR Community group has 3 in the top 100 and a further 21 in the top 1000! I'd bet there's a lot more than that on here too! We need to get together next year and give the top league's a run for their money!

          Luskin Star · 10/07/2017 at 20:39

          far be it for me (top 25%) to advise someone top 8 but what the hell Im going to anyway. I think when you are that close you need to make trades that will be a point of difference for you from the guys ahead of you. I'd be scrutinising their teams and planning my trades based on that. Trades may not work out and you may drop a little in rank but then again they might and you could strike it. Good Luck.

    Derek · 10/07/2017 at 17:47

    they sound very sideways trades (even downgrades)

      HallyMate · 10/07/2017 at 17:58

      Bont owned by 39% 1 ton from last 8 games
      Ross owned by 1% has only missed the ton 4 times all year

    Jabba07 · 10/07/2017 at 18:07

    Maybe consider trading Treloar to Jelwood, thus pocket the cash that could help you save a trade down the track to make you feel all square?

      HallyMate · 10/07/2017 at 18:11

      Unfortunately jelwood made his way in to my team 4 weeks ago :/

        Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 18:13

        I like Ross Hally, he's a young gun and getting better all the time, Saints are on the improve too.

          HallyMate · 10/07/2017 at 21:19

          I'm a big fan as well Russty, really slid under the radar so far this year, as it stands Bont is out for Ross

    Wombatsfc · 10/07/2017 at 19:11

    Before finalising the trade have a look at the chosen players team ave number of disposals patterns, this stat often helps identify gold. A few teams have very high possession numbers and otherwise spud SC footballers rackup high numbers. Cripps going down is going to open the door for someone in a team that has more disposals than most and it could easily push a player averaging 90 into the 110 bracket.
    Another option would be upgrading a current bench player to a fallen premium and loopholing Treloar, if you don't already have the best DPP FWD you can strategically afford to 'paint the fence' and then have a premo for bench cover and loophling on two lines.
    Well done on being ranked so high, maintaining that rank for the rest of the season is the hard part

      HallyMate · 10/07/2017 at 21:24

      Thanks Wombats, Cripps going down makes me hopeful Murphy can get back to his early season form. Upgrading a bench player would take two trades which I'm not willing to spend just yet especially as I'm holding on to scooter selwood at M9 already

Jimmy · 10/07/2017 at 14:44

Powell Pepper to Zorko!!! Boom!!!

    Tyruddanaut · 10/07/2017 at 15:20

    Most popular trade this wrek

      Moustachio · 10/07/2017 at 18:02

      Why would anyone still have SPP ^^

        Whatyasmokin · 11/07/2017 at 00:49

        Its a bit odd.

        SmoothCriminals · 11/07/2017 at 11:31

        Just because he's made money every week up to this point

George · 10/07/2017 at 14:46

*rapt, not 'wrapped'.

    The Stare · 11/07/2017 at 22:04

    Wright On.

Tommo09 · 10/07/2017 at 14:46

Thoughts on what I should do this week
Have had an absolute shocker of a year and want to finish the year strong and improve my rank a bit

My team as it stands:
Def: Doch Simpson Laird Adams Hibberd Tuohy (Ryan Hibberd)
Mid: Danger Titch JPK Pendles Bont Selwood Rocky Fyfe (Bolton Cousins Witherden)
Ruc: Mummy Gawn (Strnadica)
Fwd: Heeney Macrae Dahl Lynch Nank Greenwood (Eddy Beech)

5 trades and $227.9k left

I have been told to hold and I have been told to trade Greenwood
Thoughts?

Thanks community

    Hand Candy FC · 10/07/2017 at 14:52

    Hold. Team is fine. Use those trades in finals to pick best in-form and H2H POD.

    Lack of forward bench cover is a worry. Fingers crossed for no outs for the next few weeks.

    Tyruddanaut · 10/07/2017 at 15:20

    I'd trade Greenwood to the best person you can get For him

      Tommo09 · 10/07/2017 at 16:10

      Who is that best player?
      Buddy? Greene? NRoo? Ryder? Yeo?
      I have a feeling that as soon as I get Yeo, he will get injured

        Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 16:17

        I think Ryder at the moment Tommo, in very good form.

        Randomcliche · 10/07/2017 at 16:28

        Buddy clearly the best….but Yeo for SC this year…

        Whatyasmokin · 10/07/2017 at 16:41

        Ryder. He smashed Vardy and Lycett imo

          Tommo09 · 10/07/2017 at 17:02

          Might trade Nank and Greenwood to Ryder and Buddy in the next 2 weeks

        Moustachio · 10/07/2017 at 18:09

        Look at Yeos run home, he isnaying most games at DS

      Moosehead · 10/07/2017 at 17:03

      Don't trade Greenwood – yet. He can play and you are low on trades. Wait at least until injuries strike.
      Your team looks fine and oood luck

    Jabba07 · 10/07/2017 at 18:15

    I'd hold. Try to upgrade Beech at some stage (cash in Ryan) and keep Greenwood to provide F/M cover. Works well as Bolton is a DPP. In the same way, you could cash in Ryan when he peaks as Witherden can provide D/M cover via Hibberd who is also DPP.

    Pete · 10/07/2017 at 19:14

    hold
    you will need all yr trades

Tommo09 · 10/07/2017 at 14:47

+1

Hand Candy FC · 10/07/2017 at 14:48

2232.

Hanners, Dahl, Hibberd, Treloar …. uggghhh
Adams, Lynch, Gawn, Grundy …… flat

At least I got Danger's (C) this week, unlike last week …… Dochery's 122 will be fine …. :-O

Got to hold trades until finals.

Ryan. Scharen, Greenwood, Hibberd (NM), Mountford, Witherden all generating good bench cash until then.

Bock Choy · 10/07/2017 at 14:49

I managed to pick up Danger at $560k – the $200k he's put on since then makes him one of my best cash cows this year!!!

    Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 17:51

    How's your ranking now…considering you didn't have him in your team for 7 rounds?

      Moustachio · 10/07/2017 at 18:10

      Why would it be bad? Assuming he spent the money elsewhere and didn't sit on it, he should have more points than someone who started with Danger. Dats maths bro.

    Jambo · 11/07/2017 at 09:22

    I did exactly the same thing. I also picked up Doc at 590k. Before he went bang bang bang!

Mick · 10/07/2017 at 14:52

Villian = Gawn

    Tyruddanaut · 10/07/2017 at 15:18

    He is the worst! Just 0.3k more of a drop and I could pick him up. Surely he could've butchered the ball one more time. Had CD got it right

Defying_Madness · 10/07/2017 at 15:03

We shall never forget you Hodgey. True champion of the game.

    Tim · 10/07/2017 at 15:04

    Greatest sniper of all time. He will be missed

      gator59 · 10/07/2017 at 16:08

      You obviously never played against Hodeys old man.. Now that's the biggest sniper of all times ,and yes we are mates ..

      Still has me baffled why he never went to Richmond cause the whole family is so one eyed.. even Luke was

        Moosehead · 10/07/2017 at 17:08

        Thanks for the memory. I love stories like that.
        Hibberd's (Demon's) old man was the toughest bloke on the Mornington Peninsula in his day. Fortunately his son isn't like that but a couple of hie team mates are.
        The Dees will do well when they get their best side together.

    Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 17:42

    He ain't dead mate…lol, still got 7 games to play.

Tyruddanaut · 10/07/2017 at 15:16

To be honest the best pick of the year so far hasn't been Dangerfield for me. I think I'd prefer The Doch-tor

    Whatyasmokin · 10/07/2017 at 16:40

    Oliver for me, maybe Witts actually.

      Tibor · 10/07/2017 at 17:05

      Oliver for mine, a lot of 100+ scores from a bloke who started at 382k and played every game. Even the bad rounds are in the nineties

      Tibor · 10/07/2017 at 17:19

      On the other hand if a bloke starts at 700k plus and then goes up by nearly 50k that is pretty impressive the way he's going they'll have to start him at 800k plus next year or everyone just gets him in and makes him skipper every week how boring is that. The bloke is so good he is embarrassing the comp..

        Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 17:37

        He started out slow in his career though, I had him in my Sc team way back in his first few years and he was quite average for his first 3 seasons unlike Selwood who was good from his first season, 2012 was Danger's first big season and he hasn't looked back since.

    jez_m · 10/07/2017 at 19:00

    I'd pitch the case for Tom Mitchell. One score of less than 100 for the year in an up and down team has been incredible.

      BlueNath · 10/07/2017 at 22:12

      He is an accumulator, but you have to question his impact on games. But in a SC sense, he has been superb

      Tibor · 11/07/2017 at 09:05

      What did he cost to start with?

        Thomas · 11/07/2017 at 11:10

        565k

          Tibor · 11/07/2017 at 11:47

          Yeah Oliver starting at 382k looking better all the time

INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 15:27

Got Cripps. Busted leg by the sounds of things. Have fun with that one wombats. I know your patiently waiting for your Monday rant

    Randomcliche · 10/07/2017 at 16:32

    Bad luck. PS Wombats I need some sleep hope you can help me catch some zzzz's with your keyboard antics….

      Patsy · 10/07/2017 at 17:09

      Someone may have knocked his ipad? I hope so/

        Tibor · 10/07/2017 at 17:14

        Maybe he's done what wombats do???

          INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 17:23

          Likes having a crack at me on Mondays Tibor. Gets grumpy

            Tibor · 11/07/2017 at 09:11

            Maybe he cut one from the herd over the weekend and is in a better frame of mind

    Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 17:40

    That's harsh Pieman, Crippsy shouldn't have gone out like that…bummer.

      INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 17:50

      Can't plan for these things Russty. But I have kept a few trades up my sleeve for unfortunate incidents like this

        Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 18:01

        Well done mate, good luck for the rest of the rollercoaster.

Big G · 10/07/2017 at 15:32

Seriously cursing getting Mitch Wallis in

Boltons Blues · 10/07/2017 at 15:33

Shaw > Laird for me this week
Leaves me 6 trades and happy where my team is at after 2525 a week before and 2350 with Ablett and Kennedy on the pine

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 10/07/2017 at 15:49

Dusty is a favorite for the brownlow.

After his 142 on the weekend the Doc is the 2nd highest point scorer for the year.
Only 1 man ahead of him – danger.

I'll let that one sink in and come back to ya.

    BrownlowBoy · 10/07/2017 at 16:00

    The Tigers have also won more games than the Blues, so traditionally, the winning team's tend to poll more votes.

    INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 16:01

    You having a piece of Doch for the Brownlow Trig? 500-1

    DacZawson · 10/07/2017 at 16:05

    Unfortunately for Docherty, Supercoach is not always the best indicator of Brownlow chance. He just doesn't play a role that the umpires are gonna love him for, getting kicks behind the play.
    If it were the case I would've been a lock a couple of years back for top 3 u16s league BnF playing free man in defence every week.

      INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 16:07

      Yep. They call it the midfielders medal for a reason. Hence why Doch is 500-1

        DacZawson · 10/07/2017 at 16:10

        Out of interest Pieman, who do you see as next best chance after Danger and Dusty?

          INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 16:13

          Tmitch. And he might beat them both

            Whatyasmokin · 10/07/2017 at 17:00

            If danger gets injured, and the tiges/dusty vanish back into mediocrity. Having Nank not getting many hit outs isnt helping.

        Bob · 10/07/2017 at 22:05

        But Docherty is part of the Blues midfield rotation. Have you watched any games?

    Dice · 10/07/2017 at 16:21

    Supercoach is made for a bloke like Doch.
    Unfortunately that's about it for him

      Tibor · 10/07/2017 at 17:11

      Little bit harsh Dice, he plays his role beautifully I agree it is SuperCoach point friendly but he's still a pretty handy player in his own right not just a sc player. Any team would welcome a bloke who plays that sweeping role as well as Doc

        Dice · 11/07/2017 at 12:54

        Yeah I know Tibor. Super player but no match winner. Just saying he's not brownlow material.
        My mistake was not starting him in my side from round 1.
        He'll get 10 – 12 brownlow votes this year

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 10/07/2017 at 16:22

    nah just pointing out that when we ask should I bring in Dusty, pendles, Neale etc we should be bringing in Doc.

    Besides danger no one has scored more SC points for the year.

    Kudos you blue ball tearer.

      Whatyasmokin · 10/07/2017 at 16:59

      Well yeah, anybody that doesnt have him is a fool! And to think starting with him was getting him cheap lol.

      Luskin Star · 10/07/2017 at 21:26

      I signed up for the Doc bandwagon when I read the big wrap you gave him in the team reveal preseason. Guy is a SC gun.

    Whatyasmokin · 10/07/2017 at 16:37

    Sunk in and you've lost me lol

    Derek · 10/07/2017 at 17:55

    i saw those dumb dumbs on The Couch a couple of weeks ago, none of them had docherty in their 1/2 season All Australian teams!

    Moustachio · 10/07/2017 at 18:13

    Doc is an excellent kick of the football but a lot of his possessions are pure seagull, the amount of metres lost to pass it to him over and over is legendary. Brownlow medallists typically win their own ball.

    A great example of why SC points do not always correspond to who is actually most influential on the ground.

Shake n bake · 10/07/2017 at 16:01

Cripps out for year.

DacZawson · 10/07/2017 at 16:02

Cripps done for the season.
Trading to either Zorko, Neale or Dusty. Leaning towards the first two as not having Dusty could be a positive point of difference given he drops the occasional shocker that is likely to be affect my opponent.

If Fyfe keeps the 2015 form up from the weekend I might trade him back in in a few weeks time.

    Dice · 10/07/2017 at 16:23

    I was gonna post the same you brilliant full back you. Although Kennedy (SYD) for Dusty.

    I'm thinking Neale

      Wizard of Ertz · 10/07/2017 at 16:49

      I brought Cripps in last week as my supposedly final upgrade. As a warning to others, I'm now planning on moving him on to Neale.

Shake n bake · 10/07/2017 at 16:05

Can you believe only 3 more rds till sc finals!!

    Whatyasmokin · 10/07/2017 at 16:46

    Really? Gone too quick. Might get Laird in now for Newman.

Steeeve · 10/07/2017 at 16:07

Sommeone in my league has an absolutely stacked team, really good coverage on all lines. Scored over 2400 pn the weekend and has outscored me every week for the past month or more. And they have Pendlebury perma captain. Could be pytting up massive numbers by changing the C to Danger. Hope they don't might be my only chance in the finals.

    Whatyasmokin · 10/07/2017 at 16:36

    Pendles perma captain? Sounds like theyd be winning the whole thing if theyd just use their captaincy properly.

Joshua · 10/07/2017 at 16:08

Does this years scores Effect next years prices? So will Cripps be cheaper because of his 30 or not? I will probs pick him up anyway, one of my favourite players

    Randomcliche · 10/07/2017 at 16:38

    His 30 will hit his home and away season average impacting his price. Not sure if cd will give him an injury discount on top….

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 10/07/2017 at 16:51

      played more than 6 games so wont get the injury discount
      his avg is 97.7. Multiple this by the magic number.
      This year the magic number was about 5400
      So if SC use something similiar will be
      $528k.
      Lock that crap out of him at that price if he has a full preseason.

        Derek · 10/07/2017 at 17:51

        like Trigga said, they use the season average. their ending price has nothing to do with the starting price next year

Jimbob · 10/07/2017 at 16:43

I only have 4 trades left but comfortably 3rd in my comp – Would be happy to hold all trades until finals but Mitch Wallis is dropping cash all over the place – What are your thoughts on a trade up now ? I have $125k in the bank.

    Whatyasmokin · 10/07/2017 at 16:45

    Macrae/Heeney/Ryder?

      Finnius123 · 10/07/2017 at 16:51

      walters potentially good pod

    Wizard of Ertz · 10/07/2017 at 16:53

    Given your league position, i would hold. Also, Bulldogs should come out fired up after last week's disaster so i expect a few of them to score well against the Blues.

      Whatyasmokin · 10/07/2017 at 16:57

      Youre right with only 4 trades. Hold.

MTUK · 10/07/2017 at 17:00

So Fyfe to Cripps this weekend was a spectacular trade for me. Opps…..

    INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 17:13

    Unlucky. There were quite a few that did that trade

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 10/07/2017 at 17:15

    I reckon I saw last week that was one of the most popular trades.
    I was almost another stat but decided to give Fyfe one more week as they were playing North who tend to leak points in the mids
    Just unlucky mate

    Lady luck she will have her say.

    Mystic Mac · 11/07/2017 at 14:10

    Guilty );

Stirlsy · 10/07/2017 at 17:06

PIEMAN … Have you noticed Fyfe since his bye? Looks slimmer up top from week to week, or are my eyes playing up?

    INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 17:20

    He's moving a lot better Stirlsy. That was clearly noticeable. Did you put him on a diet mate?

      Stirlsy · 10/07/2017 at 17:43

      Defo he has slimmed down in the upper body, I could see it just b4 his bye but the 2 weeks off he had (bye and the sternum inj) he looks way lighter in the upper body now.
      Was only North but it was an away game, but i like the way his body shape is now, more like the old fyfe then a top heavy bulked up one.

        INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 17:54

        Wonder if he went to see Shane Warne's Mum

Jim · 10/07/2017 at 17:11

Hoskin Elliot or Steele to get the boot this week?

Hold Nank for the season?

    Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 17:55

    I think I'd boot Hoskin-Elliott before Steele, seems to have a higher ceiling and in a better team on the way up too.

    GloryDays90 · 10/07/2017 at 19:23

    Hold Nank and Steele. Get rid of H.E

    Whatyasmokin · 11/07/2017 at 00:55

    Wow havent hear hoskin-elliot's name for a while.

BlueNath · 10/07/2017 at 17:11

Honorable mention to Docherty. If Danger didn't exist, the Doch would be the next best dependable captaincy option

PJ sixers · 10/07/2017 at 17:14

Very good guys today with out any horrible trolls so thanks everyone.

BlueNath · 10/07/2017 at 17:14

Cripps season over with a broken fibula 🙁

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 10/07/2017 at 17:29

    thats it
    Cripps is banned from playing the Dees ever again
    Rd 2 hairline fracture of the jaw thanks to lewis
    Rd 16 broken leg thanks to some hunt

    no more demons for you Patrick.

2480 with no ablett or kennedy. Damn.

Creek465 · 10/07/2017 at 17:49

Community! Need help with this one, is Sloane to j selwood a good move? 7 trades left 1 rookie left on field, but waiting till i can afford doc.

Love to hear from you

    INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 18:07

    You should be getting Doch before getting rid of Sloane

      davo · 10/07/2017 at 18:29

      Get full premo first and then re-think

      Creek465 · 10/07/2017 at 19:17

      Awaiting rookies to gain more money, Greenwood parsons ryan witherden mountford

        Creek465 · 10/07/2017 at 19:30

        Sloane hasnt scored over 3 figures in his past 5 games

          BlueNath · 10/07/2017 at 21:26

          Sloane was very good on the weekend though. Was in a lot of contests. Could be turning the corner. You may regret trading him. At this stage of the year it can be very costly sideways trading. Just ask the Fyfe owners who traded to Cripps last week

Fitzy · 10/07/2017 at 17:58

Silly. Not enough trades plus Sloane getting better esp if his teammates help him.

    Creek465 · 10/07/2017 at 19:18

    Is this replying to my above comment?

Mike · 10/07/2017 at 18:02

How hard is it for Hanners to score 100 . SERIOUSLY . Omg

    INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 18:19

    Doing my head in to Mike

Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 18:06

Hey guys, I'm looking to offload Pederson , with Gawn and Hogan back, he seems to now be a low scoring spud, was thinking maybe Ryder..Nick Roo?…too risky?…Get Koby Stevens back in again..lol or stick with him?
Appreciate your input.

Fwd line is now:
Macrae, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Nank, Heeney, Pederson—–Greenwood, Pickett

    gator59 · 10/07/2017 at 18:08

    Ryder for me Russty.. Go Sainters!!

    INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 18:14

    What about Yeo

      Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 18:17

      I've got him in the mids at the moment Pieman.

        Defying_Madness · 10/07/2017 at 18:19

        Swap him to a midfielder

          INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 18:23

          Agree with Defying. Get a Mid. How much cash you got

            Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 18:31

            $218k mate.

          Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 18:25

          Yeah true DM, could probably wait a week and get him out for Selwood…maybe stick Greenwood onfield and bench Peddo this week?

            Defying_Madness · 10/07/2017 at 18:34

            Sounds good to me

              INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 18:38

              Agreed

                Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 18:41

                Cheers guys, thanks for the help 🙂

Jabba07 · 10/07/2017 at 18:27

Hi all, I see from posts Cripps may have a broken leg? Any confirmation on this?
Gutted, picked him up rock bottom a month ago expecting a big run into finals like last year, a real POD.

    Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 18:30

    Yeah unfortunately Jabba, he's gone for the season, a lot of guys brought him in last week too.

Northerner · 10/07/2017 at 18:31

Just a whinge.

Dropped from just outside top 200 to outside top 500. Ouch. Traded Newman for Cripps as 9th premo mid to cover Ablett being out. In doing so had no cover for JPK late out so the gods got me this week.

Now Cripps is a must trade out that cost me $30k and 200 points if you consider both his spud score and loss of mid cover to facilitate the trade.

I went from a projected score of 2550 to not even reaching 2150.

The gods had been good to me up till then.

    Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 18:33

    Just plain bad luck mate, you can still make a good run at it from here, no way to forsee that kind of disaster.

    INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 18:49

    Unlucky Northerner. At the end the gods are only kind to the person that collects the 50k. Everyone else gets a nasty visit at some point

    jez_m · 10/07/2017 at 18:57

    That's a real tough break, Northener. It's been that kind of season for a lot of people.

Jim_bob321 · 10/07/2017 at 18:37

Any suggestions for my team this week. Here it is:
DEF: Doch, Adams, Laird, Simpson, Lloyd, Witherden (Ryan, Schaz)
MID: Danger, Zorko, Bont, Murphy, Wines, Treloar, Fyfe, SPP (Cousins, Brown, Hibberd)
RUCK: Martin, Nank (Darcy)
FWD: Yeo, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Ryder, Heeney, Wallis (Greenwood, Strnadica)
Currently have 7 trades with 303k in the bank
Thanks community

    INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 19:00

    Maybe wait a week & SPP to Jelwood won't cost much

yolandi · 10/07/2017 at 18:47

In a real pickle. With Priddis ruining me week in week out the obvious thing to do is trade, but with three trades left and 3 players off full premo, my best bet seems to be to hold and pray he finds his form leading up to the finals, seeing as WCE are sitting 9th.

What do you guys think, should I still aim for the highly coveted full premo 22 or is my best approach to accept my fate and trade Priddis to make way for a proper premo, thus holding on to players like Greenwood, Witherden and Darcy for the long haul?

    Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 18:54

    I think you need to try and hold on and dance with who you brung…you must've blown 3 or 4 more trades than you should've somewhere along the line to be in this position.
    No offence intended but if you trade anymore now, you will run out of trades and your finals series will just be a complete disaster or pure luck if you get through.

      yolandi · 10/07/2017 at 19:55

      None taken. 100% agree and accept blame for the state of my team heading into finals. It's my first year of SC and I've had so much to learn in such a short amount of time so I'm not too annoyed with how it's all played out.

      But on second thought, after having a look at Priddis' run home, with 4 games at Subi and against relatively weaker opposition (Just 3 in the top 8), he looks like a hold.

      I'm always quick to be influenced by a good/bad week from a player when making trades so these next few weeks will be the hardest for me, will have to gut it out and hold my trades AT LEAST until rd 20/21.

        Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 20:15

        Yeah hold on Priddis mate, and I'm sorry if I came across harshly, didn't realise you were a first year player and it's really easy to be swayed to want to trade every week..when things aren't going well…I did the same early on in Supercoach…with many mistakes.

        Of paramount importance early in your season, meaning before the season starts, is to pick a good team, so that hopefully, you won't have to trade much in the first 4 weeks or so. That helped me a lot this year.
        The way to do that is, to get into these forums in January and February…to get a good heads up about who's gonna play and who isn't.
        Trades are invaluable this time of year and if you still had 8 or 10 now, you'd be in good shape…3 trades left at this time of year is desperation stakes…you can't trade unless you get an injury, or you're done.

        Good luck mate, hope it works out or you learn something from this year..:)

    jez_m · 10/07/2017 at 18:56

    I'd probably hold trades and work on upgrading your rookies a bit later.

Beefy · 10/07/2017 at 18:55

White out for Ryder or Gawn (move nank fwd)??

    INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 19:29

    Yep

jez_m · 10/07/2017 at 18:56

Question: do I get Docherty or conserve trades? He would be my last upgrade but would leave me with just two trades for the remainder of the season with cover on all lines (four left at the moment). Would most likely trade Parsons and Scharenberg.

Def: Laird, Adams, Rance, Roberton, Witherden (Ryan, Scharenberg)
Mid: Dangerfield, T. Mitchell, Bontempelli, Kennedy, Wines, Treloar, J. Selwood, Fyfe (Mountford, Thomas, Cousins)
Ruck: Grundy, Goldstein
Fwd: Yeo, Macrae, Greene, Dahlhaus, Kennedy, Lynch (Greenwood, Parsons)

    INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 19:32

    Playing Witherden over Doch is probably 50 points per week some weeks. But are you likely to get more then 2 season ending injuries, probably. Tough call. Personally I'd get Doch & pray the gods are moderately kind

      jez_m · 10/07/2017 at 19:41

      That's the way I'm leaning, Pieman. I'm ranked about 14K at the moment and after finishing in the top 500 last year, I'd like to push back into the top 10K by season's end!

        INPieman · 10/07/2017 at 20:07

        Your cover is good jez. Balls out & get it done

Ben · 10/07/2017 at 19:19

Thoughts on Lynch – Gawn? Got 5 trades left and my last upgrade will be Greenwood – Jelwood in a week or 2.

    BlueNath · 10/07/2017 at 22:08

    Back in Lynch and save the trades. Doubt GC will have 2 quarters like that again this year and Lynch was best on ground at quarter time. He will finish the year well IMO

Pete · 10/07/2017 at 19:25

Nate · 10/07/2017 at 19:45

Hey guys, gonna be making some serious trades to make sure I qualify for finals. Which one out of Kelly, Titch or Zorks should I upgrade to? Will be bringing in selwood next week once he hits rock bottom 🙂

    Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 20:40

    Any of those 3 would be good if you can do it.

    Whatyasmokin · 11/07/2017 at 00:43

    Titch.

    ProTravo · 11/07/2017 at 11:42

    Titch for reliability, Zorko for high scores, Kelly somewhere in between but great POD.

Plugger · 10/07/2017 at 20:17

I have S.Martin and Goldstein as R1 and R2.
Want to bring in Darcy for the money to make other needed upgrades this week and next.
Who goes for Darcy?
Martin or Goldstein?

    Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 20:20

    I'd keep Martin and Goldy and forget about Darcy, who already went up 66 grand this week, if you wanted him, should've been last week.
    Find another way to get money, your Rucks are set.

      Plugger · 10/07/2017 at 20:32

      Thanks for the clear cut analysis.

    finnigin · 10/07/2017 at 20:31

    goldy might be turning the corner and steff ussually has a rest bout this time each year

    Whatyasmokin · 11/07/2017 at 00:42

    You were a better player than list manager thats for sure.

    Moustachio · 11/07/2017 at 09:04

    Get Gawn for Stef, not Darcy

finnigin · 10/07/2017 at 20:29

got to get some zork on my fork ,, who to ditch adams or watson ????? adams been spewing the ball up and jobe is close but father time catching him ,, thoughts please community

    Will · 10/07/2017 at 20:43

    Ditch Jobe IMO

      finnigin · 10/07/2017 at 21:05

      cheers wilber ,, you know when you just want some assurance to soften the blow when murphy has his say in all things

    Finnius123 · 10/07/2017 at 21:12

    Jobe for shizzle

Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 20:30

Hey guys, remember this…

Every game in the Finals of your Leagues, could be your last… unless you are in the top 4 and have a double chance, so, you need to make sure you do everything in your power to get through to the next round, by making sure you have the best team onfield possible to get through.
After that, you'll need trades to back you up when things go wrong with injuries etc…or the highly coveted 'luxury trades' to improve your team….to get through to the next round of finals.

If you don't do it, the other guy will, and you'll be toast.

Good luck!

Rocksta · 10/07/2017 at 20:53

Like everybody else whom hasn't got him, I want to bring in Jelwood next week.
I'll need to paint the fence to make that happen but can't see any decent downgrade targets coming up next week.
Are there any?

    Whatyasmokin · 11/07/2017 at 00:37

    Should be starting to look at non playing loophole options I reckon.

    SC_Kev7 · 11/07/2017 at 09:59

    Atley from Port plays his second this week if named. Didn't light it up on the weekend but he's a warm body

    Derek · 11/07/2017 at 10:00

    Dawson is on the bubble, if he plays.

Jordy · 10/07/2017 at 21:02

Do i trade Cripps to Jelwood while he is cheap and leaves me with 6 trades

or

Do i trade Cripps to Zorko but will have to use another trade to grab the cash that is needed?

    BlueNath · 10/07/2017 at 21:12

    Do the second trade and get Jelwood also next week and have a bench premo option to loop each week in your mid!

    Rocksta · 10/07/2017 at 21:14

    It's a no brainer…………….Jelwood.

    They will average similar for the rest of the year.

    Moustachio · 11/07/2017 at 09:02

    You'd think Zorko will average at least 180 from this point on.

Finnius123 · 10/07/2017 at 21:13

My POd's in Zorko and Selwood are both becoming not very POD's after this week 🙁

    Northerner · 10/07/2017 at 21:39

    But there's a reason why that's the case and you've been on board for that ride. You got the best output that others will have missed out on

Ant · 10/07/2017 at 21:13

Upgrade Stewart to Walters, Heeney or Riewoldt?

    BlueNath · 10/07/2017 at 22:05

    Not Roo

    Whatyasmokin · 11/07/2017 at 00:36

    Heeney

Joshua · 10/07/2017 at 21:25

Do you get double chance if it is only 10 in a league and not the usual 18?

    Russty_ · 10/07/2017 at 21:30

    Only top 4 teams in the finals get a double chance.

      Joshua · 10/07/2017 at 22:19

      I know that but in both 10 member and 18 member leagues right?

        Derek · 11/07/2017 at 09:58

        Same for all, even if only 8 in league

          Morse code · 11/07/2017 at 15:42

          Surprised at that. Are you sure. It make sense in the 10 league teams that the top two get the double chance.

Jose · 10/07/2017 at 21:34

Heeney, Ryder or Greene?

    BlueNath · 10/07/2017 at 22:03

    Ryder for sure

      Derek · 11/07/2017 at 09:57

      Yep. Look at Ports run home.

Jess · 10/07/2017 at 21:56

Options? 8 Trades – 230k (Looking to be best placed come league finals)

Hold this week or trade to who

    Whatyasmokin · 11/07/2017 at 00:36

    Port might give SPP the week off, and even if he plays I see him bleeding cash with his 97 BE. Straight to Selwood and let the rest fatten.

      Derek · 11/07/2017 at 09:56

      Agree. SPP won't play.

Joshua · 10/07/2017 at 22:21

If Greenwood isn't named again this week should I go one week early on Jelwood?

    Whatyasmokin · 11/07/2017 at 00:32

    Possibly but I will be shocked if Greenwood is not named instead of Thompson.

    Morse code · 11/07/2017 at 10:59

    Yes, the once great Tommo should retire at end of year. They rested GW to give Tommy a final fling.

TOPHAWK1 · 10/07/2017 at 22:31

Hi community,

Alright folks, Its time for a luxury sideways trade.

I have been waiting to do this all year. I always knew that a couple of my premo selections were going to be duds. So now is the time to use those couple of spare trades saved up throughout the year. I have 6.

All my key bench rooks are little cashie beauties. Witherden, H Greenwood-will be back, Berry, Ryan, and yes and even the loophole slave aka Mitch Hibberd is promoted and making cash. Well done Hibbo, I knew making money is better than being a slave.

Bolton is now officially my swinger loophole slave as well as Eddy of course.

So, which premo "dud" to toss out of my side…..Here are the two in the gun- Treloar or Hannebery.

I reckon Treloar has to go.(BE now at 148) The pies are in crisis with no finals footy in 2017. Treloar is not out of contract, so he is just doing enough to keep credible. Hanners has a finals series to look forward to.

OUT- Adam Treloar.
IN- Joel Selwood.

At $483K, J Selwood is a must have at that ridiculously low price. His BE is still high, but who cares at this time of the season. Its a sprint to the finish line from here.

SC points are now king.

    Whatyasmokin · 11/07/2017 at 00:31

    If youre not near the top of the rankings may as well save the cash on Selwood and wait till next week, that saying I am on average coming in the top 4 if not top 2 of all my 10 leagues.

    Derek · 11/07/2017 at 09:54

    Hanners coped a corky in his thigh two weeks ago, he'll be ok. Swans are in the hunt.

    Swans play a lot of early games to finish, if you keep Hanners you can stick him in the bench with an E as security.

    SC_Kev7 · 11/07/2017 at 09:56

    As awful as Treloar was on Sat, he actually hasn't been half bad of late, a low score of 91 in his past 6. Hanners hasn't tonned up for a month, has the rejuvenation of Parker effected him?

      Derek · 11/07/2017 at 12:35

      And Jack

Frank · 10/07/2017 at 22:48

7 trades left, $17k left
Docherty, Laird, Adams, Hibberd, Lloyd, Ryan (Hibberd(NTH), Cox)

Dangerfield, Martin, Kennedy, Oliver, Bont, Treloar, Fyfe, Greenwood (Witherden, Bolton, Mountford)

Kreuzer, Gawn (Strandica)

Yeo, Macrae, Dalhaus, Buddy, Heeney, Ryder (Black, Eddy)

Thanks community

    Fitzy · 11/07/2017 at 02:48

    Thanks for what? If you meant to ask for an assessment here you are.
    You need another defence for Ryan and a mid for Greenwood which is going to cost you two trades each which leaves you with 3 trades thus leaving you in strife if/when the inevitable injuries/late withdrawals occur so you will need a lot of luck to survive your league. Hopefully you are in the top four. Ryder is a good forward but no emergency forward?

      Cam_H · 11/07/2017 at 10:26

      I'm pretty much in agreement with Fitzy here, but my inclination would be (assuming no crisis elsewhere) to plan to use two trades next week, leaving you with five trades and an on-field rookie defender:

      Aaron Black ($219K) > Ryan Nyhuis ($117K) by using Brennan Cox swing
      Hugh Greenwood (est. $380K) > Joel Selwood (est. $460K)

      At least with Cox in the forward line you have some Ruck and Forward bench cover assuming Ross doesn't inexplicably drop him, while five trades should be enough to deal with long term injuries, and if everything pans out OK there's opportunity to upgrade that last defender at season's end. Best of luck with whatever you decide.

Andrew · 11/07/2017 at 00:26

What's the go with JPK? Why did he miss the game on the weekend and is he expected to play this week?

    Whatyasmokin · 11/07/2017 at 00:56

    Rested I assume.

      Cam_H · 11/07/2017 at 01:04

      It was reported last Friday as "quad tightness" and a "line-ball decision" to rule him out.

      He's not currently on the Swans' injury list, so I'm assuming (hoping) that he's all set to play this weekend.

        SC_Kev7 · 11/07/2017 at 09:47

        Probably erred on the side of caution given the match was against GC. He'll be right

Rivo · 11/07/2017 at 08:11

Awful round of 2175 after 2479 last week. Traded in Gawn for a 79, JPK a late out, fielded Witherden & Mountford.
Hanners, Treloar, Nank, Hibberd, Rance, Stef Martin & Dahlhause all terrible. With just 5 precious trades, too risky to double trade now, so waiting for cash to nab final mid upgrade. Hopefully Jelwood for around $470k at this point?

red5 · 11/07/2017 at 08:16

A good forward is hard to find.
Once you get past the top for four, there's not much to consider that score consistently.
Who are people looking at for F6 & F7?
I'm thinking of trading in Ryder for Vardy and get the added bonus of the Nank RUC/FWD swing

    Derek · 11/07/2017 at 09:30

    The Port boys must be considered. Port play 4 of there next 5 at home.

    Ryder, Hoff and Chad? Take your pick.

      Monkey · 11/07/2017 at 15:45

      Greenwood averaging the same as Yeo and Wingard the last 3 weeks so will save a trade until if/when he stumbles but he is looking good.

    Morse code · 11/07/2017 at 09:39

    I have Macrae, Dalhause, Buddy, Ryder, Heeney and Greenwood with Parsons at 7. Greenwood probably have to go but you never know because he may keep improving. So, Red, who are your forwards?

      red5 · 11/07/2017 at 10:05

      Yeo, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Nankervis
      F6 to F8 are Stewart, Parsons, Bolton & also Greenwood as the DPP

        Morse code · 11/07/2017 at 15:36

        Maybe I should get Yeo in a couple of weeks or Wingard because of Ports home run.

The mongrel punt · 11/07/2017 at 09:05

Fyfe finally scores big. Of course he did. I traded him out on Friday. Cripps breaks his leg and scores 28. Of course he did. I traded him in for Fyfe. Add the fact that Greene Greenwood and Kennedy didn't play. Trealor and Dalhousie shat their pants 2288 was the best I could manage.
Thinking Cripps to Dusty this week. Sorry in advance to anyone who has him.

    ProTravo · 11/07/2017 at 11:37

    I had the same issues, only managed 2,183. My first big set back and I'm not happy.

    Ja191 · 11/07/2017 at 21:20

    wait a week on dusty

Fitzy · 11/07/2017 at 09:34

You did very well under the circumstances. SC sucks sometimes. NOT ONCE have I had my best side in this year. I thought it was finally going to happen last week and Kennedy is a late withdrawal. Hopefully this week because I play a guy that I must beat. Good luck to you too.

Ryan · 11/07/2017 at 10:45

Alright need to fill my last forward spot this week. My forwards at this stage are:

Dahl, Macrae, Yeo, Higgins, Nank, Greenwood, Parsons, Miles

Looking to upgrade Parsons but unsure of who to. Currently ranked around 4k so a POD wouldn't be a bad idea. All opinions wanted.

Cheers

    jez_m · 11/07/2017 at 14:20

    Heeney or Walters seem like good options. Walters is only in 4% of teams if you want a POD.

Choice · 11/07/2017 at 10:48

Yeo or Ryder? I'm leaning Ryder but his next 2 opponents are Goldstein and Gawn and I need every win

    Derek · 11/07/2017 at 12:34

    I feel sorry for Goldy and Gawn owners

Dice · 11/07/2017 at 10:48

Lachie Neale, Seb Ross or Josh Kennedy syd.
Final trade who to get?

    jez_m · 11/07/2017 at 14:18

    I'd go Kennedy. Swans are charging towards the finals and he should be fresh from a week off.

joe · 11/07/2017 at 10:56

"so those who loyally held him would have been wrapped".

Apart from the fact that you meant "rapt", I wonder what a Fyfe owner should be wrapped in. Despite last week's score, I think tin foil.

    Tibor · 11/07/2017 at 11:55

    Some folk, including me, avoid the sideways trade of a time proven premo wherever we can. Fyfe has been flat but he was relatively cheap if you got him right at the start and if he gets back to anything like his best by supercoach finals time his owners will be rapt and wrapped

    Rick Grimes · 11/07/2017 at 12:00

    Here comes the grammar Nazi…

    Morsel · 11/07/2017 at 15:32

    Yes, you have a point Joe. I held him and was relieved that he did well last week. I also held Sandi but that didn't work so got Gawn last week much cheaper than those who got him initially.
    I am still learning this game but I have noticed that people are mad keen to get to full premium ASAP. I am at full premium this week with 8 trades left which has resulted in my getting Lloyd, Selwood etc very cheaply.
    So I suppose the tortoise will beat the hare in my leagues but I am not ready to deal with the big boys yet for overall. You need a lot of luck to win the 50K. Still, I am 1291 in my second year and have learnt so much from Jock's mob and the comments. Pity the trolls can't be eliminated.
