SuperCoach RD17: The Heroes, The Villains, The Damned.

Published by Jock on

Heroes-Villians-Damned

The rookies are emerging, Community.

Alex Witherden was sensational in his fourth game with a delightful 109, while other mid-season picks like Hugh Greenwood and Luke Ryan continue to produce consistent output.

The performance of Dogs debutant Lewis Young, who had 8 intercept marks and 21 disposals in his 67 SC, was also exciting.

While it is promising to see these players putting their hands up, one can’t help but think they would have been more valuable presenting themselves earlier on in the season. Oh well.

Par was about 2300-2350 in what was a solid round by many coaches, headlined by the magnificence of Dangerfield and Ablett.

The Heroes

Shannon Hurn (165 SC) produced one of the best performances of his career on Sunday. His disposal efficiency was an elite 91% and 22 of his 34 touches were kicks. He also clunked 14 marks. Gary Ablett (159 SC) is staking a claim as SuperCoach’s best ever player after another monster outing on Saturday. He compiled 27 kicks, 14 handballs, 8 marks, 6 tackles and 11 clearances in a masterful display.  

Chad Wingard (157 SC) and Brad Ebert (148 SC) were absolute dynamite for Port Adelaide during their rout of North Melbourne. The Chad had 30 disposals – 18 of them contested – as well as 3 goals, while Ebert extracted a massive 14 clearances from his 30 touches.

Hats off to Patrick Dangerfield (141 SC). After developing a foot injury late in the first quarter, the great man swung himself forward with devastating effect. He finished with 20 possessions, 12 marks and 5.6 in a match-winning performance.

Ben Cunnington (137 SC) has been in fine form in the past month, averaging 119 in his last four matches. Against Port he was workman-like playing as an inside mid, with 26 of his 33 possessions contested. He also had 11 clearances and 8 tackles. Tom Mitchell (136 SC)’s consistency is becoming ridiculous. His 43 disposal, 2-goal effort was the latest in a long list of supreme performances from Hawthorn’s star recruit in 2017.  

Essendon’s Michael Hurley (133 SC) enjoyed one of his best games of the season with 27 possessions and 9 marks – all at a pristine 100% efficiency. Nat Fyfe (126 SC) continued his resurgence, while Bulldog pair Jack McRae (124 SC) and Marcus Bontempelli (120 SC) helped their side get across the line against Carlton.

50 hit outs helped Matthew Kruezer (120 SC) cement his position as the number 1 ruck option of 2017, while popular selections Rory Laird (121 SC) and Zach Merrett (120 SC) produced prolific performances, racking up 71 touches between them.  

Other 120+ scores: Liam Duggan (129 SC), Shane Savage (125 SC), Trent Cotchin (123 SC), Steele Sidebottom (122 SC), Liam Shiels (121 SC), Connor Blakely (121 SC).

The Villains

The magnificent one Dayne Zorko (55 SC) performed a magic trick on Sunday when he made himself disappear. Was barely sighted during Brisbane’s disappointing loss to Richmond and finished with just 11 disposals. And just what the hell is wrong with Tom Rockliff (57 SC)? He hasn’t been the same player since returning from a shoulder injury a month ago. He had just 14 possessions on Sunday. It was horrific.  I’m still of the belief Rocky will come good, but those owners carrying him are having their patience tested.  

St Kilda trio Jack Billings (66 SC), Seb Ross (64 SC) and Leigh Montagna (60 SC) were below their best against Essendon, as was North’s Todd Goldstein (62 SC) who had only 6 disposals. Tom McDonald (48 SC) came up against a good full back in Daniel Talia and struggled up forward while Dees teammate Max Gawn (57 SC) looked sluggish up in Darwin and went at only 36% efficiency.   

Collingwood pair Scott Pendlebury (83 SC) and Brodie Grundy (77 SC) have been disappointing over the past month, while Suns duo Jarrod Harbrow (43 SC) and Tom Lynch (58 SC) had matches they would rather forget against the Pies.

Other popular selections including Luke Parker (84 SC), Toby Greene (83 SC), Zach Williams (82 SC), Robbie Gray (81 SC), Luke Dahlhaus (76 SC), Alex Rance (66 SC) and Nic Newman (63 SC) produced below-par performances.

 The Redeemers

Taylor Adams (125 SC) was back to his best with 31 disposals and 9 clearances for Collingwood, while Michael Hibberd (124 SC) bounced back from a 64 last week with a nice outing against Adelaide.

GWS ruckman Shane Mumford (120 SC) pumped out 2 goals, 9 tackles and 37 hit outs to register his first ton in 6 weeks, while Lance Franklin (118 SC) is on an upward trajectory after a quiet patch in the middle of the season. Buddy’s averaging 113.6 in the past 6 rounds.

Dylan Roberton (101 SC) and Dan Hannebery (105 SC) both hit triple figures after a recent poor run of form, while Mitch Wallis (110 SC) also bounced back after a string of disappointing performances. Joel Selwood (94 SC) is an absolute bargain this week. Priced at just $450K with a break even of 56, he looks to have recovered from his concussion issues and will be set for a big finish to the season.

The Prodigies

Alex Witherden (109 SC) is a young star on the rise. He had 28 touches to handsomely reward his owners with a triple figure score. Collingwood’s Josh Thomas (96 SC) also had a decent game, while other popular selections including Hugh Greenwood (71 SC), Matt Scharenberg (70 SC) and Luke Ryan (69 SC) were all serviceable.

There were three debutants, with Bulldog Lewis Young (67 SC) looking the best of them. He took 9 marks and collected 21 disposals. Keep an eye on how the 117K FWD option goes in his second match this week. Other first-gamers Cameron Zurhaar (30 SC) and Josh Battle (8 SC) didn’t show much.

Four players are potentially on the bubble this week – Sam Simpson (54 SC), Ryan Nyhuis (48 SC), Daniel Nielson (42 SC) and Joe Atley (31 SC).

The Damned  

Rory Sloane (50 SC) is in doubt due to concussion after knocking his head on the ground in a tackle. He was tagged by Vince again and was having minimal impact before the incident in the third quarter. His output has severely dropped in the past month, so a trade needs to be considered.

Those still holding Jack Steele (59 SC) should be looking to offload him. He just doesn’t get enough of the ball to score well consistency and relies too much on tackles to boost his numbers.

Steven May (15 SC) sustained a hamstring injury and will most-likely be sidelined for a number of weeks, meaning a trade out may be necessary.

How did you go this week?

Sloane to Fyfe? 😐

Whatyasmokin

Is Sloane worth selling for 450K though? I'd hold unless in the race for top rank.

It only costs 135K-ish to go from someone like Greenwood to Fyfe.

garfield_da_cat

6 trades left 113k in the bank should i trade sloane out and bring in selwood? or go newman to roberton?

jez_m

Can you do both?

Whatyasmokin

Show us your team?

garfield_da_cat

Backs: Laird, Hurley, Adams, Docherty, Lloyd, Newman – bench Ryan and Witherdin
Mids: Danger, TMitchel, Zerret, Zorko, Neale, Pendles, Sloane, Fyfe – bench Greenwood, D Lloyd and Cousins
Rucks: Witts, Grundy – bench Strndika
Fwds: Macrae, Yeo, Franklin, Dahlhaus, J Cameron,
Houston – bench Parsons and T Smith

Rocksta

Upgrade houston before you worry about sideways trading Premos!

Russty_

That being said, I'd get rid of Pendles before Sloane…and Houston to Wingard ..Heeney, Greene maybe?

Chocco

Providing I have the trades to suffice, would it be worth looking at offloading Lynch (GCS) and Devon Smith for some more consistent scorers? Lambert has caught my eye.

Whatyasmokin

You'd be paying top dollar for Lambert and I'm not convinced.

Bock Choy

Yeo being a late out hurt. If I'd picked up on it earlier, I could have done a DPP switch with Macrae and then picked up Witherden's 109. Alas…

SC_Kev7

I would've done the same, BC. The Dogs game had already started when the news broke

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Same
Was a late late out with only 1 game left
U were stuck with your E which in my case was suckface parsons.

Russty_

At least your E wasn't Hibberd, as mine was lol

Daniel Z

Yeah, I wasn't too thrilled about that. Especially as I traded him in this week…

Treloarnation

Ablett or Titch?
Heeney or Wingard

jez_m

The safe options would be Mitchell and Heeney, but if you want a POD I'd go Mitchell and Wingard.

Whatyasmokin

Or Gaz and Wingard for the ultimate POD risk package!

I'd go with Ablett/Heeney or Titch/Wingard so you get a POD either way.

james

Mitchell has 23% ownership and Ablett has 10% so wouldn't classify Titch as a POD over Ablett

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Wow.
Thought titch % owned be much higher
23%? Really.
Funny everyone I play in league has him.

Russty_

He's been unaffordable for a lot of us spuds…lol, I only just got him in this week.

Whatyasmokin

Think they are talking about Wingard as the POD.

Derek

I would be worried about Heeney getting rested. He is still suffering the effects of Gladular fever, reports are that he misses at least 1 session a week because of tiredness

neil Demons Delight

Handy for potential owners me thx mate

Rocksta

Titch, Heeney…….No Brainer

Northerner

Sloane to Jelwood. Hard to believe that on current form it nets you $30k positive!

Whatyasmokin

That would be tempting if you had no other way of getting him in.

Tyruddanaut

Sloan keeping the tag for the rest of the year

Jordy

who would ya rather trade out.

Lynch (GCS) or Greenwood?

Would leave me with 4 trades

jez_m

I'd be trading Lynch first. I have both of them myself but only two trades left (Greenwood is my forward cover), so I'm going to try and loop them as much as possible.

Tyruddanaut

Greenwood has a much lower ceiling and is a rookie

Whatyasmokin

If you cannot utilise Greenwood's swing, and don't have the trades to set that up then I'd probably trade Greenwood.

Rocksta

Greenwood

Rick Grimes

What's the news on Danger?

Tyruddanaut

Lots of sources say he overreacts the injury and after looking over it he'll be fibe

Whatyasmokin

He's in a moon boot so not sure. This game in Adelaide is important though, and I dare say without him they could lose.

BrownlowBoy

Without him they will lose

Whatyasmokin

They match up well on the crows though, but yes Adelaide are playing well and they will come out hard for this revenge game.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Friday night though
Not much recovery time.
He would be sore today.

Whatyasmokin

True, Sunday arvo game could be a different story. Id say he'll miss.

Randomcliche

Favourite for Brownlow still at $1.85.

Jimmy

Brought in Pendles, really annoyed as I thought he is too good of a player not to turn it around. I believe if he hadn't copped the hand injury though he would of tonned it up. Still waiting on his scans.

Whatyasmokin

Broken finger 1-2 weeks.

CJay

No nappy changing for Pendles then, got out of that one nicely.
Unlucky Jimmy.

Jake.B

I think it will be longer than 1-2 weeks. It's the tip of his finger aswell. Could potentionally be a 3-4 with the surgery.

Whatyasmokin

Yeah latest ive seen is 4 weeks. Bye Pendles 🙂

May be the last time hes in my sc team.

Matt

What do people think about Heppell? He has just consistently been average, but that average is no where near as good as I need him to be… Trade or hold in hope of better things?

Whatyasmokin

Could sideways to Selwood if you have enough trades. How many you got and are you full premo on field?

Matt

Already got Selwood, and only 2 trades left but a full premo mid. However lacking premo-quality atm in Rocky and Heppell. (otherwise got kelly, danger, selly, merrett, zorko and neale).

Luke

What are your other mids?

Tyruddanaut

I have to hold my trades this week as I only have 3. But I'm also hoping that Danger or Pendles is out for the season for an excuse to get Gawn

Whatyasmokin

What, Gawn looking that good after a 79 and 57?

neil Demons Delight

big risk there T BUT sometimes that's what is required

JohndJames

Max is still going down in price,you can wait and see if he improves.

John

Should I get rid of pendels?

Whatyasmokin

Nah, wait on the scan results.

jez_m

Scans have revealed a broken finger, 1-2 weeks at this stage. I'd be trading.

Whatyasmokin

Well……..average scoring and now possibly two weeks makes the Pendles to Selwood trade highly justifiable.

Gary

Really think Jelwood is a must this week, but who for…
C.Oliver, Treloar or Rockliff

rory

rock for sure, its pretty much a straight swap

Whatyasmokin

The gods would kick u square in the nuts if you traded Oliver I reckon.

Have a look at Treloar's last 8 games, again I reckon you'll be punished.

Rocky down but what happens when he starts pumping out 130+ again?

If going for rank then possibly Rocky, if not hold, or find a rookie to upgrade.

Whatyasmokin

My advice is to target Selwood this week.

Don't freak out too much on the likes of Newman, projected a 12K loss for a score of 84.

Nine times he's scored 80+. Four times under that.

Selwood projected 79 and will go up 10.5K.

This is a guy that has gone 120+ Seven times this year.

rory

and last timethat they played the crows he was bog and scored 151 points

Whatyasmokin

So that's probably a 30K increase? Not sure on the maths myself.

Randomcliche

So should I use my last two trades to punt Perryman and Parsons for Jelwood and FD? I own Pendles…. currently have scooter m9, tuohy d7 and greenwood f7.

rory

what does every think about blakely, he the real deal, becuase his 3 round average is 121 and other than one 78, he hasnt gone below 98 in 8 weeks. your thoughts please?

Whatyasmokin

Is a gun and real POD, but unproven so I suppose a big risk, could pay off in finals.

jez_m

He looks to have broken out, Rory. Could be an interesting POD, but Freo have a seriously tough run home. I'd be surprised if they win two more games for the rest of the year.

Whatyasmokin

He could be but id rather not have the risk, already have rocky and sloane myself.

BrownlowBoy

Pendles got a broken finger and will have surgery tonight. – Ben Guthrie twitter.

Whatyasmokin

Players come back surprisingly fast from broken fingers though.

Whatyasmokin

Actually I was thinking of fractures.

Derek

I am so tempted to get sidebum.

SC_Kev7

Said it before and I'll say it again: Rocky's game is built on tackling and he's just not doing it. 3, 2, 4, 6, 4, 4 since his return. Was in double figures for 4 of his first 8 games

Whatyasmokin

But with people low on trades, and it coming towards the end there's probably no point trading. He should be good by finals.

Big G

I wish I knew this 8 weeks ago.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Shark move
trade him in as an M9 for finals.
Loop him if pulls out a big one.

SC_Kev7

Fair call. I'd be looping him with Greenwood/Witherden when possible if I owned him. More the point was "he'll come good" might be wishful thinking. He either lacks confidence in his shoulder or it isn't 100%

Whatyasmokin

If battling to make finals in your leagues then youd probably want to trade him out.

Don Drumpf

Pardon my ignorance Kev but can u pls refresh my memory on looping emerg? Got Cousins (shouldnt b named), Greenwood & Witherden that i want to loop this round… cheers

SC_Kev7

No worries at all, Don. Cousins is actually out injured for the year so no chance he'll be a late call up.

Start Cousins on field with the E on Greenwood (plays Friday night). If GW goes large don't touch a thing. If GW stinks it up swap Cousins with Witherden before the Hawks play on Sat night

Don Drumf

You are a gentleman, Kev. Knew it was something along those lines but was getting myself confused. Many thanks, mate!

swannation

5 trades left.
Keep pendles or go bang to titch

jez_m

He's going to miss a couple of weeks, so I'd trade.

FCAbel

Bang

Rocksta

Depends on the rest of your team, and your position

BigBadBustling

Thoughts on trading Wines to Selwood (pocket $40k) and then Newman to Roberton (costs me $11k)?
Leaves me with 5 trades and $173k in the bank. Only player needed to upgrade is Greenwood when he maxes out.

Whatyasmokin

Dont like it after wines pumping out a 108 and 118.

BigBadBustling

I thought it would be another source of income and a slight upgrade as Jelwood would be averaging much more if you took the game he got knocked out out of the equation. What about the Roberton for Newman trade?

jez_m

Roberton for Newman is a better option.

Whatyasmokin

Newman to Roberton looks like a good trade, although his scoring has been down…….

JohndJames

No point,it's a sideways trade if I ever saw one.

Cogla13

No, not good. Roberton inconsistent of late. Selwood would be a good get but only for a Pendles or Sloan type or upgrade.

Rocksta

He's already maxed out…………….BE of 80

Russty_

True, Greenwood won't make much more money unless he starts pulling regular tonnes out of his butt.

Jim

Upgrading WHE this week can get anyone.. need suggestions on who are good finishers?

Also have Sloane, would it be worth it to trade?

Derek

Macrea or Buddy in that order if you don't have them

Whatyasmokin

Agree with Derek. Ryder another solid option.

Jim

Any key fwds reckon might finish off strong?

Is Walters a risk

Cogla13

No, tagged this week. Expect more.

Cogla13

Wingard if you want to throw the dice.

Weagles

Can I get some help please community?

I know I should hold my trades as I only have 3 left but I currently have $230k in the bank and want to upgrade Newman to Roberton + Myers to Selwood. This will give me great bench cover.

Thoughts?

My team is:

Doch, Laird, Adams, Lloyd, Hibberd Newman ( Ryan and Scharenberg)
Danger, Titch, Matin, Bont, Oliver, Fyfe, Trelor, Rockliff (Myers, Brown and Witherden)
Martin, Goldy (Darcy)
Macrae, Yeo, Dahlhaus, Nank, Lynch, Green (Eddy and Greenwood)

Whatyasmokin

3 trades isnt enough, that saying if really wanting to trade maybe Newman out, Witherden to D6 and Selwood in. Then use Brown to Loophole a mid each week.

Wait till league finals to upgrade to a defender premo, I reckon Witherden can score well enough for a D6 till then.

Randomcliche

Just the one I reckon. Jelwood Myers. Hurley over Robertson I reckon if you do the second…

pieinghigh

Pendles out with a broken finger. Minimum 4 weeks, likely gone for the season.

Pendles > Abblett

or

Pendles > Merrett

Ablett is the POD for my leagues, none of the top 4 in my league have him..

Merrett a Semi POD with only 1 of the other top 4 teams having him.

Money not an issue on this one.

Whatyasmokin

Geez if it does end up being a a probable 4+ week injury Im going straight to Selwood.

Low trades Zerrett. 6+ then possibly could take the Ablett road.

Joshua

Covering Pendlebury with Witherden for the next two weeks of the normal season, will trade if he isn't back by finals, thoughts?

Whatyasmokin

If low on trades good move, surely he'll come back for a couple later.

Joshua

5 trades, if hes gone Titch comes in for me

Bad_News_Brown

get titch in son, you've said it yourself. good work son

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Reckon a few will be going with that plan as most low on trades.

Cogla13

Afl site is saying he could be out for 3 to 5 weeks. If things go bad Collingwood will wrap him in cotton wool and you won't see him again this season.

wightyswarriors

So clever with hindsight. Can you pls tell which of the 20 I should trade in if you are so insightful ?

Bad_News_Brown

Well I don't have your team so I might double up, but choose from one of these 20 – cheers
Sloane, Selwood, Danger, Dusty, Titch, Treloar, Ebert, Wines, Macrae, Yeo, Hanners, JJK, zerret, Neale, Zorko, Adams, Crouch, gibbs, sam mitchell, fyfe – ok thats 20 I'd rather have over pendles in no particular order. I hope this helps you chump.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

No bont? 🙂

DacZawson

Forward line is:
Yeo, Dahl, Heeney, Wingard, Lynch and Nank

Greenwood is my M8
Also got Pendles who looks to be out for a couple

Looking to make one trade this week to finalise my midfield.

Who should I trade? Lynch, Greenwood or Nank?

Joshua

im in the same boat, trading lynch

Whatyasmokin

Out of those three options…….Pendles 😉

neil Demons Delight

Don't be foolish ZAC Greenwood and Nank are proven players and Lynch has proven to go big no mate the one to go is PENDLES particularly if its 3 or 4 Collingwood have no hope and they wont risk him They will play the kids and rest him

Defying_Madness

Going Parsons to Fyfe/Selwood with my first trade this week. If I go to Selwood I am 6k off going Pendles to Dusty. Currently playing for rank and Dusty has a be of 158 which he could possibly meet. Question is should I hold Pendles for the next week and if he does not come back move him on to Dusty (assuming he drops in price), or should I just bring in Fyfe and Selwood this week.
Thoughts community?

jez_m

I'd probably bring in Fyfe and Selwood. Selwood is an absolute steal and Fyfe has turned the corner.

Pauly Walnuts

Newman out for Docherty or Hurley for 100k less ? Value ?

DacZawson

If that 100k allows you to upgrade any remaining on-field rookies which due to a lack of trades would not be possible if you were to trade in Docherty then I'd get Hurley.
But in any other circumstance lock in Docherty.

Cogla13

Get Doc.

rex

pendles – joel selwood
scooter – ebert
thoughts on these trades??

Whatyasmokin

Like it.

rex

what are your thoughts on beams this cheap?

Luke

Pendles to Joel is good if pendles misses a few. Ebert only good as a m9 with a loop hole imo, he is as stable as Melbourne weather.

Joshua

Pendles to joel selwood with 5 trades remaining after it. Loopholing Greenwood and lynch at F6 and Witherden is at M8 (276k in bank though so can upgrade during finals if he drops off ) so probs the only way i can get jelwood cheap. Thoughts?

Whatyasmokin

Looks fine, Witherden should get you 80+

GloryDays90

What are people doing with pendles?? Do we trade or hold him if we have cover like Witherden and Greenwood

Joshua

waiting for further details this week. longer then two weeks and i will be trading.

Whatyasmokin

Yep thats the go.

GloryDays90

Okay, i only have 3 trades left so hope to god he plays.

Wizard of Ertz

I'm worried that Danger will be named but be a late out, so unless you have 2 pretty good mid bench options, holding Pendles could be a major problem.

Jake.B

I got 7 trades left.
My plan was to upgrade Newman to Docherty before pendles went down with his finger which I believe will be 3-4 weeks.

I have a couple of scenarios I'm tossing up between.

DEF – Hurley, Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Shaw & Newman (ryan/witherden)
MID – Danger, Titch, Zorko, Kelly, Merret, Bonti, Oliver & Pendlebury (fisher/meiles/bolton)
RUCK – Grundy & NANK
FWD – Macrae, Franklin, Yeo, Dahlhaus, Higgins & Greenwood (Deluc/Parsons)

Option 1 – trade Pendlebury for…. Selwood?
Option 2 – Hold pendlebury, Trade Parsons – swap bolton to fwd line then witherden from defence to mid & pick a 102k rookie with def/mid. Witherden can then cover Pendlebury, I then bank cash on Parsons to go towards Docherty the following week.

I still could potentionally do both of these trades anyway, and have witherden in my mid as a cover rather than Fisher as he is probably more consistent atm. It's just weather I save a trade in keeping pendles or not.

I'm leaning to swapping him for selwood though.
Will effectively leave me with 6 or 5 trades.

Whatyasmokin

Trade him out unless a miracle occurs and later in the week news is he'll be back in up to two weeks.

Cogla13

Trade Pendles mate, could be out for the rest of the season. If Collingwood has no chance of making the 8 they won't be bringing Pendles back.

Jake.B

Done! Pendles to selwood me thinks.

Itchy Ball

Pendles is done for the season. He will be getting surgery on the finger which means no more games for at least 6 weeks… hence the skinny giraffe is mothballed and to be sold…. unless of course youre as dumb as dog sh!t and think he'll be back

jez_m

It will be interesting to see how Pendles being out affects the likes of Treloar, Adams and Sidebottom. It's not hard to see them all increasing their output over the next little while in his absence.

Pete

Hey I was wondering what the community think is a good amount of trades to go into finals with?
I have 7 at the moment and don't know if I should build my team or hold off another week.
Have pendles though, so might have to.

Whatyasmokin

You have enough to move him on, scoring has been down and now surgery.

jimmy

Really upset about Pendles. This time last week I was loving life. 8 trades left and $450k in the bank. Used one of those trades and half that cash to get Pendles thinking he was going to turn it around. Ive traded him and Sloane out this week and have no cash and only four trades. 4 trades and not even finals.

Derek

yep. im down to 4 trades as well with 1 premo to fill in ruck once Darcy has fattened up. Berry, Witherden or Greenwood on bench to cover for pendles…. if i had more trades, i'd trade him out. will have to hold.

B T

Same, I'm at 4 trades and still have the spud Tom Lynch in my side.

rory

who should i swap out pendles and sloane for, maybe neale, dusty, ablett, even blakely as a pod

Whatyasmokin

Titch, Zerrett, Fyfe, Dusty, Neale, Bont.

rory

already got titch zerret and fyfe

Tyruddanaut

Who's a good value pick for under 517k. Any position?

Tyruddanaut

Is Fyfe, Ebert or Gawn better

Whatyasmokin

Fyfe at this stage.

Bad_News_Brown

Wingard

Pete

Fyfe
Yeo
D. Beams $396,000 but risky

iLoveNMFC

4 trades left, worth going Parsons to Simpson and Newman to Hurley? Banks me 120k which means I'll only need one trade to upgrade Greenwood to Greene/Heeney in the coming weeks. Cheers community.

B T

Simpson hasn't got good JS

Jim_bob321

What do u mean Simpson doesn't have good job security u hamroll fam.

Cogla13

Can't burn 2 trades at this stage. Just hold.

Top Gun

I outsmarted myself this week looping Brown on to the field with Higgins and Greenwood on the bench. Little did I know Yeo would be a late out. Smited again SC Gods to score 2347 and only move up 3 spots overall.

Bad_News_Brown

Ditto I feel your pain, I did something similar – still had enough though with Wingard piling it on – GIVE IT TO WINGARD I say

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Don't you hate that topgun.
Plan get it all right then a late out completely buggers up all your good work.
Sometimes you can be too clever

Russty_

Still a good score mate, I got royally reamed by Yeo, me being at work all day, had Hibberd (7) as backup haha

GloryDays90

Just read online that Pendles said he doesnt think he will be back playing again this year….

Hc

Yep.

I can't see him playing again this year. With the state that we are in atm I can see the club being cautios and allowing him to be fresh coming into next year, get surgery and rehab done with and rest him up for the remainder of the year.

This will also be the perfect opportunity to give the kids a few games and let them get some experience.

Bad_News_Brown

Hi all,

I will be trading Danger to Selwood and Ainsworth to Dusty this week, all for a net gain and to start the roll to a big time domination POD finish. Hear me out – Danger's time is so so going forward.

Danger has been huge – but that time is over, he's busted up, Cats have all but cemented a top 4 spot and it's time for him to plateau whilst getting ready for finals. This is the ultimate POD play, nets me massive cash and after next week I'll have Hanners/Treloar as my M8/9, Tui/Rance D6/7 and Wingard/Franklin/Greenwood at F6/7/8 with 3 trades left with 3 non playing loopholes that can all swing.

Watch Bad News Brown come home like a downtown train

TOPHAWK1

WOW. Great post. I love this thinking "out of the box" stuff. Doesn't mean I agree with it though.

Still, my gut tells me something is going on with Dangerfield. He might need a week or two of down time to bond with the bub. Can't hold that against him. Perhaps that's the reason for his "supposed" injury exaggeration on Saturday?

IF, and ONLY IF he misses this week, should you execute your plan. IMHO

Maxwell

Someone playing for a brownlow to go easy you reckon. ?

Bad_News_Brown

He already has a brownlow, he doesn't have a flag though – me thinks he knows what he wants more this year.

I'm not saying he's going to start scoring 50's or anything but I would put the house on the fact he'll average under 103 for the remainder of the year.

Hawk, appreciate your sentiment, it's a lock that he'll be out this week – if he's not he's putting the rest of the year at risk for himself and his team, I don't think that will happen.

garfield_da_cat

Aisworth to Dusty no brainer right there
Danger to Selwood no brainer right there 😉

Cogla13

It's not a lock that he'll be out this week. They will just sit him at full forward and watch him kick 8.

Defying_Madness

There isn no way he kicks 8. He only got 5 against Hawks due to their inexperienced defence and that they were unable to foresee such a situation occurring. Adelaide have ample time to prepare a strategy for the possible placing of Danger in the forward.

Whatyasmokin

Geez happy to lose your house pretty easy.

Big G

If you don't have someone like ablett and you are confident that he can pump out scores like Danger, bad news brown's thinking is rather a risk, but not the worst thinking in the world.

Hey everyone

I've gathered together a few options that I have before making any moves and would really appreciate some help from the community.

OPTION 1

Mountford > Lewis Young (Via Cal Brown)

Greenwood > Hurley/Roberton (Via Adams)

Trading in Hurley will leave me with a bare 27k which won't have me confident whilst on the run home.

Trading in Roberton will leave me with 128k which will have me confident although Roberton has been a little down the past few weeks prior to this week.

OPTION 2

Mountford > Lewis Young (Via Cal Brown)

Greenwood > Fyfe

Doing this will leave me with 60k (already have Jelwood)

I consider my team to now be full premo and am left with a measly 4 trades.

Which move should I be looking to make?

Thanks everyone, really appreciate your work.

SC_Kev7

Basically Fyfe v Hurley/Roberton. I prefer Fyfe. Seems to be over his sternum problem and is coming home strong.

min0008

Got 9 trades and 140k left over so go Pendles to Ablett or Merrett? Or go Merrett and save extra on Fyfe.

Russty_

Ablett for the higher ceiling but much more risk, Merrett for reliabilty and good scores.

GloryDays90

Who is a good POD to get in for Pendles? Struggling to decide.

B T

Ebert, Ross or Neale. Maybe even Blakely.

Bad_News_Brown

I don't mind the Blakely play, I personally think Hanners is a good POD to come home with, he will be in the top 8 mids for the last 6 rounds IMHO (not for the year)

Derek

Finnius123

Neale

Russty_

Mitch Duncan?

garfield_da_cat

6 trades left 113k this is my team so far
Backs: Laird, Hurley, Adams, Docherty, Lloyd, Newman – bench Ryan and Witherdin
Mids: Danger, TMitchel, Zerret, Zorko, Neale, Pendles, Sloane, Fyfe – bench Greenwood, D Lloyd and Cousins
Rucks: Witts, Grundy – bench Strndika
Fwds: Macrae, Yeo, Franklin, Dahlhaus, J Cameron,
Houston – bench Parsons and T Smith

Thoughts on who i should bring in? I am thinking sloane out jelwood in.

Jim_bob321

Hold

garfield_da_cat

are you serious jelwood is as cheap as he is ever going to be this year and sloane can't cope with the tag

Bad_News_Brown

You didn't need to ask the question, make the trade son. Pretty awful team up front though son – you need to do something there.

garfield_da_cat

well if you think my team is pretty awful then put up some advice on who i should bring in, think thats pretty straight forward.

Bad_News_Brown

I stated your team up front was awful – sorry mr sensitive

Who should you bring up front? One of below

Wingard, Heeney, Lynch, Ryder, Higgins, Greene, Nank or about another 30 forwards that make your F6 look like a comedy skit

Good luck Mr Defensive – the rest of your team looks ok although I personally would move on Newman but I don't dare to suggest that as I don't want your nickers to get in anymore of a twist. Additionally I don't want to touch on old man Pendles.

garfield_da_cat

Oh for F sakes i ask you for some advice on my team and you act like a little bitch, what the F is wrong with you? Better yet don't answer me your advice sucks D!€% anyway.

Bad_News_Brown

Lol open your eyesson. My first comment was – make the trade (sloane to selwood) and do something about your forward line. Now I've given that you are running around like a little twat fool? Hope you can untangle those nickers your wearing before you put them in the wash – good luck son, it appears you need all the help you can get to dig yourself out of the hole you're in.

Wa Wa Wa

Russty_

Wow, that was a bit awkward!…play nice fellas :)…Hey Garfield, I'd say Pendles for Jelwood, no brainer..and maybe Houston out for Heeney (if you can afford). Not sure if Jezza's playing either…hamstring tightness and all.

Bad_News_Brown

I guess I would be getting my nickers in my twist if I had a team with Pendles, Sloane, Jezza and the Houston Rocket all on field. 🙂

Agree with your trades Russty, Heeney is the safest forward option but his options up forward are endless. Safest option is not necessarily the best option.

garfield_da_cat

cheers for the advice russty

Mick

Pendles out before Sloane, bring in Jelwood. That should leave you with around 150k, def need to upgrade Houston. Bring in Heeney or maybe JJK for point of difference?

Bells

Papley still getting it done for me. He is a dead set premo option next year folks.
He does it all. Goes hard all day.

I had Scooter to Joel all done. Guess I'm keeping scooter now and dumping Pendlebury. Will have to loop Scooter and Witherden from here as only 1 trade left after this week. Too many stranded rookies this year.

Russty_

Agree about Papley Bells he's been pretty good this year, and will get better next year.

Cogla13

You're going to run out of trades.

Russty_

Pendles to Titch and Pederson to Selwood this week for me, means I have to keep Pickett but wrangled it so I've got decent cover on all lines..what do reckon guys?

jez_m

Sounds good to me, Russty.

JohndJames

Looks good to me Russty,can't go wrong with Titch,he makes a good C if Danger is injured.Pendles really has stuffed me up big time.I might just cover him till the finals,then bring someone in.

neil Demons Delight

if its 3 or more weeks I would trade him regardless but depends on trades and your league position. Remember you can easily win outside the top 4 so double chance not like the real game .Players still get injured from your team regardless if your resting or playing

JohndJames

Hi Neil,down to 4 trades,still have Sandy and now Pendles to deal with,have Nank covering Sandy and SPP/Witherden to cover Pendles.Will bring in Kreuzer and Merrett as replacements,before the finals start,looking at making 7 of my 8 league finals,in the top 4 in 5 of them and top 6 in the other 2.

Choice

Laird or Hurley?

Russty_

Both pretty good choices but Hurley is in stellar form.

Finnius123

Newman to Adams this week for me

Bad_News_Brown

Love it, and I bet you've been loving Adam's donking off pony scores the last few weeks, now is the time to get him in, good work son

Gaz

8 Trades Left $56k in the bank;

DEF: Docherty, Laird, Adams, Simpson, Lloyd, Newman – Ryan & Hibberd.
MID: Dangerfield, Mitchell, Martin,Pendlebury,Hannebrey, Kennedy, Treloar, Fyfe – Witherden, Bolton & Cousins.
RUC: Martin, Grundy – Strnadica
FWD: Macrae, Franklin, Dahlhaus,Lynch, Yeo, Greenwood – Parsons, Eddy.

Any thoughts on trades?

Russty_

With 8 trades left Gaz, I'd maybe be looking to paint the fence and CASH yourself up for the run home….Pendles out for Josh Thomas for your mid bench and Witherden onfield…and maybe Lynch or Parsons out for Wingard, Heeney or Greene.

Finnius123

Parsons to Young and Ryan to Roberton – push Newman to D7

OR

Ryan to Nyhuis and Parsons to JPK – pushing lynch/JPK to D7 and looping each week

ahmad rubas

parker to selwood leaves me with only 3 trades left and 180k spent main reason for this trade top 8 have each of my midfielders kelly bont murphy danger fyfe treloar kennedy but no one in top 8 has parker

DacZawson

Not sure about your logic here. By getting the same midfielders as your opponents you rely on your other lines for the win. Are you confident that they are good enough? Having Parker as a point of difference might end up being the thing you need to win a league game.

Finnius123

Agreed
