Just need no injuries this week so I can satisfy a long lasting desire of mine and trade Nank out of my forward line after the weekend.
The Supercoach gods will probably hit me with multiple injuries though given the last few weeks.

Daryl

I can't understand the rush to flush the Nank. If you trade so that he becomes your F7 and swings via Strnd to the Ruck when necessary then he becomes a valuable commodity and a trade saver.

GloryDays90

Im actually considering De Goey. Could be a good POD with Pendles out!

Whatyasmokin

Got burnt by him last year.

Whatyasmokin

Wise words.

INPieman

Opposition coach vs Pies at selection. Right who do we put work into….Pendles….not playing. Right who's next. Treloar. Nah he's going to kick it our players or at worst out on the full. Adams. Same. Any other decent Pies players? Degoey. Kicked 4 last week & won the game. Right. Let's put someone on him then & make sure that doesn't happen again

No one

I think you'd be welcome at Carlton UNPieman as "they're the team that never let's you down." Collingwood's song has the line "side by side we stick together" which you haven't been able to identify with. You're constant devisive comments are extremely annoying to those of us who actually admire Bucks, Adams, Treloar, Eddie, Collingwood Football Club etc.

Whatyasmokin

At some point you've gotta be able to have a dig at your own team's players, especially when u believe they are capable of a lot more.

Russty_

Agree Smokin, I love my Saints, but they've been sporadic, pathetic, brilliant and completely crap this year, I hoped for so much more but they've failed to deliver yet again after all the hype and hope.
No one, you need to let people have their own opinions without berating them for it. It's a free forum.

Randomcliche2

Said 'No one' ever… get a profile bro if you want to go the man….

Whatyasmokin

Yep I'm not sure why there's people having a cracking at pieman anyway just shares his opinions like anyone else. Blind supporters are the worst anyway constantly yelling ball with every tackle laid lol……

No one

"Go the man"? That's a tad ironic. UNPieman's attack on Buck's is relentless,

Randomcliche2

The bloke took a gf team and dismantled both the structure and culture. It's possible not to do that, just ask Chris Scott. If you would prefer to lay blame elsewhere do so. Just remeber to compare his good attributes and actions with that of grand final quality team, as that's what he started with.

INPieman

You admire bucks no one? He took a young premiership team to the bottom parts of the ladder. I'm not sure your familiar with the terminology of direction & achievement. Mount a case for me if you can? I'd love to read it

Whatyasmokin

Blind Loyalty is a fallacy, for the nobodies…..

No one

I hope you take the job when he finishes UNPieman,. We'll clearly win a plethora of flags under your stewardship.

No one

In Buck's defence, the instability of the football department since he's taken over from Mick has stifled his tenure. In 2010 Mick had solid assistant coaches including Bucks, Brad Scott, Scott Watters and Mark Neeld who all became senior coaches. If Mick honoured his contract as director of coaching, the assistant coach situation didn't suffer major upheaval and the head of the football department was more stable the results may have been stronger. That's without considering the manic dedication he brings to the job and the fact that these day's there are a number of coaches rather than one. It's always easy to attack the tall poppy, unfortunately.

Neil

Reckon they'd got to Sidebottom or wells before degoey.

TOPHAWK1

Past performance is no indication for future performance.

Whatyasmokin

I've already had the LEKture ok!!!

So true though and I wouldn't have Yeo if I never adapted. 2017 was a year for adapting to change.

Captain Risky

A few rules had to be broken this year for sure. It's been a funny year.

TheGreatBozza

I agree with Captain Risky. Who would've thought the Yeo Yeo would be a top 3 FWD. Time to kick it and rip it to JDG

BigBuggars

Great stuff Lek. Pity I don't have enough trades to do anything with it!! – Except turf Pendles, that is. Can afford anyone I don't have, but would prefer to save cash for cover with the 3 trades I'll have left. Titch, Dusty, Sloane or Joel? Either can't drop out or can't get in in leagues, so is a rest of season/finals decision as opposed to a match up to get through this week. Any thoughts?

SC_Kev7

It would just be the cherry on top of this year for the SCGods to completely shaft us all with injuries/suspensions/sudden form drops over the last month and a bit. Flick Pendles and hold the rest of your trades close

Whatyasmokin

Agreed bargain, very happy to go Pendles to Joel last week.

slats7

I'd only trade Greene this week if you have to win to make finals. If finals are looking good, I'd hold for now.

Trades are like gold at this point of the season, especially for a player who is only out two weeks due to suspension, not injury.

Brad

but he misses week 1 of sc finals doesnt he?

slats7

Yep, so hold this week and assess next week.

You don't want to waste a trade this week only for that player to get injured.

Undies

I agree – I have Greenwood as cover who scored higher than most forwards last week anyway, he'll be on the ground this week and next.

benjamin B

5 Trades left $103,600 in Bank.
Doc, Laird, Adams, Simmo, Rance Lloyd (Scharenberg, Nielson)
Danger, Dusty, Zerrett, Bont, Jelwood, Treloar, Hanners, Pendles (Witherden, Berry, Cousins)
Gawn, Goldy, (strn)
Yeo, Macrae, Dahl, Buddy, Greene, Nank (Greenwood, Eddy)

Problem players are: Pendles and Greene (miss 2 more weeks, wont drop value) and rance/nank (stinking it up and both set to drop value)
Should win this week.
I want Titch in the mids, Heeney up front and Hibberd down back.
Is is worth going Rance to Hibberd and Nank to lewis this week? Then grabbing titch from pendles the following week and Heeney from Greene?
Leaving 1 trade left for injury with a lot of cash?

JohndJames

The three you want to get in are a must,I have all three,the plan you have mapped out works.The only problem is it leaves you vulnerable in the Rucks,what if Max doesn't get up this week and Goldy stay's dropped ?

Winter

With 4 trades and 30k in the bank

Is it worth downgrading Mountford to a non playing 102k mid/def player in order to upgrade Pendles to Dusty or bring in either Bont, Ebert or Beams with 1 trade

Bringing in the swing player will make a connection with Witherden down back and leave me with 2 trades and 107k left

slats7

Ebert – POD.

Tommo09

Dusty, Merrett, Kelly or Neale to come in for Pendles???

Whatyasmokin

Zerrett or Dusty.

joshunt7

Dusty for sure

JohndJames

In the order that you have them.

TOPHAWK1

Dustin Martin.

No if's and but's.

The guy is at the peak of his powers and playing sublime football.

Yes, he needs to be careful with the MRP, as one further indiscretion would mean an automatic 1 week suspension.

As they say, you gotta risk it for the biscuit. He is the best of that bunch above.

Cheers

Liam

Sloane or beams ?

Whatyasmokin

Beams more injury prone but if right more consistency and a ball magnet. Tough choice.

Shaneo

Are we thinking
Hutchings will do the hard tag on beama?
With zorko not playing

Whatyasmokin

Beams too quick and will find the ball.

Brad

so, in my 2 main leagues, i cant drop out of top 4 if i lose this week
i also have 6 trades left:

at the moment i have:
RUC: gawn, nank
FWD: yeo, dahl, heeney, greene, roo, gwood (parsons cover)
————
option 1: greene out, nank out – mcrae in, ryder in
option 2: greene out, roo out – mccrae in, kennedy in
option 3: greene to mccrae and hold nank, meaning another trade in the bank for finals footy.

mccrae is obv the man to have when money isnt an issue, right?
discuss. thanks community you legends.

Russty_

I like option 3 Brad, get rid of the violent flog, for a good player, maybe assess Nank for one more week, or if you can't wait, option 1.

JohndJames

Macrae and Ryder a no brainer.

Hubba

Seriously….how have you still got 6 trades?

Mcrae in

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Got your cheat sheet 100% right Lek.
Toby Greene is a flog.

Yep full stop. Spot on.

Leeds17

Do you think Stevie J is a flog? a lot of similarities in these 2, give Toby time he'll come good.

Whatyasmokin

Yes Stevie J is a flog. Kidding btw he's alright.

Russty_

Nah he is a bit of a flog/rascal/gets suspended a lot…lol

Lawson

Thinking jack steven to beams. Or maybe rocky to beams. Should I do it or just hold

Whatyasmokin

Depends on league position, trades remaining and probably more questions remain.

Lawson

Playing for finals but will only leave me with 2 trades. Already at full premo

Whatyasmokin

Trade Rocky, Jack Steven has at least scored well recently.

neil demons delight

Think Nank might be worth keeping..Soldo has had a massive imput on him and will go.. He has had a great year ad theres more to come.. You,re very welcome onfield In the Demons Delights

Whatyasmokin

He shouldn't be on field at this point of the season. A decent F7/ruck swing is all he's worth I reckon.

TheGreatBozza

Couldn't agree more. I'd only consider a trade to a Buddy or JJK type with a huge ceiling that you can loop

B rian

Not enough output for F7 even. He has to be traded
Soldo is paying because nanks tank is empty.
This was a very predictable drop off in form because of his age and body size.
Stop kidding yourself and trade him before he is worth nothing

SCDamien

Would you play Lewis Young on your field over Tom Lynch this weekend? Has outscored him 2 weeks in a row.

The Hoff

Hahha

Whatyasmokin

Yep. Good ball in means Lynchy scores well.

oscarr

thinking of bringing in de goey for nank, too risky orrr

The Hoff

risky but come finals u need to take risk

B rian

He will be ok if you can loophole him. I wouldn't full trust him onfield

The Hoff

Should i bring in Connor Blakely or to risky he has scored 10 hundreds in the last 11 games the other score was a 74 or do i go a proven promo

The Hoff

so u have Blakly in your team

Finnius123

Goldy to Stef, Nank to Heeney? Leaves me with zero trades.

The Hoff

No then keep 1 trade keep nank

Russty_

Is Goldy injured?

The Hoff

no dropped but he'll be back this week for Daw

TOPHAWK1

You gotta hold those 2 trades if you can mate!

Wait until teams drop tomorrow. Then make a call. I expect Todd Goldstein to be named. (1 trade saved)

Nank is cooked IMO. Do not trade in Heeney though as he plays first. Look at JJK instead as he plays last, or another playing forward before Nank plays obviously.

REASON- You might need the Nank all of a sudden because an earlier playing forward is a late out or dropped! (2 trades saved)

When you are down to 2 trades before finals, you have to get super crafty. I know. Went into 2016 finals inside top 4 in all my leagues without trades left, and got pumped. Out in straight sets.

Cheers

TOPHAWK1

Correction- JJK or any other (fwd/mid/def) swing players which play after the Nank are out of bounds.

Russty_

With Goldy likely back this week, and Nank not injured, using your last 2 trades on that would be madness mate, save em for when you really need em, and you will.

Whatyasmokin

Hold for sure, wait for team announcements and assess.

MTUK

4 Trades left, $175k in the bank. Safe in my top 8.

Defence covered by Witherden & Ryan, Midfield is covered by Scooter and Fisher, Forwards by Greenwood and Parsons.

FWD line of: Dahl, Buddy, Higgins, Nank, Greene & Yeo. Cover is Greenwood and Parsons.

Thinking now might be a guts or glory move of Parsons to Kennedy for the run home. Though logic is telling me to shift Greene to Macrae.

If I leave it another week the first option may be unaffordable but again, should really hold some trades and I don't like my midifeld cover at all!

Decisions, decisions….

Whatyasmokin

Yep trade Greene he's gone for two and your forwardline will be too thin.

jez_m

Macrae is a must have.

Tony

Need to replace McGrath or Ryan in def.
who would you bring in ?
Current line up
Docherty, Laird, Simpson, Adams, Lloyd, Mcrath
( Ryan, Nielsen )
Trades no problem and plenty coin in bank.
Thinking Hurley, but for 100k less can get Williams, Robertson etc.

Who will score the most from here is the million dollar question !

Your thought community would be appreciated .

Tony

The Hoff

Hurley or Hibberd

TOPHAWK1

Ryan is likely to be named this week. HOLD. Even if he is not, HOLD.

Mc Grath to Hurley. BANG!

Whatyasmokin

Agree, unless you need McGrath swing.

TOPHAWK1

If the bloke does not have Witherden, Adams, Lloyd, M Hibberd, he probably out of the contest in any case. Both Leagues or rank.

Cheers

Whatyasmokin

Possibly…..

NovemberFoxtrotIndia

Will Soldo play???
Have Nank as F6 (Strandica at F3) and looking at trading to Ryder.
Also looking at Parsons to Young.
6 trades before to 4 left.
Comments welcome.
PS Greene on the pine this week..

NovemberFoxtrotIndia

R3 not F3

Whatyasmokin

Ryder is a good option but although people are considering ports draw soft, he will be going up against Jacobs, Witts and Grundy over coming weeks. That saying I reckon I'm locking him in this week he's shown he is up there with the best. Is keeping Greene a good idea I hear he's out for two and week one of finals is crucial, could be a season defining decision….

Russty_

I hope the Tigers wash their hands Jeffery…of the Solvol Jeffery 🙂

Dave2008

8 trades left 27 900 in the bank and set for the top 4.

Suddenly I have Wingard, Pendles out and Nank to move out as well. Team below and want one ruck, mid and two forwards. Who to take with not much cash?

D Doc Adams Simpsons Roberton Laird Lloyd (Ryan Hibberd)
M Danger Selwood Fyfe Bont Hannaberry S Mitchell Treloar Witherdon (Pickett Myers Pendles)
R Grundy Nank (Strandica)
F McRae Dal Buddy Ryder Wingard Butler Eddy Greenwood

I was thinking of who is the biggest bargain in the forwards or mids as I cant afford who I would like (Kruezer, Dusty, Yeo, Heeney) So… for my next four trades in order (breakevens considered).

A. Gunston M Wallis Sloane Gawn in and Greenwood, Wingard, Pendles, Nank out.

B. Keep Greenwood for first final as F6, Gunston, Mummy and Beams in and Wingard, Pendles and Nank in.

Any thoughts greatly appreciated!

Pete

Hey mate I would swap pendles for beams and wingard for kreuzer and swing nank up forward

Charlesy_1

Hurn or McGovern???

Have to offload Newman this week… my (and others) on his place as a keeper @ D6/7 were wrong it seems.

Hurn has gone ballistic 2 weeks in a row with Yeo playing elsewhere on the ground, but I fear he won't keep it up for the rest of the year.

McGovern has been decidedly far more consistent but doesn't have the ceiling of his skipper.
Would love some discussion on the two or suggestions for a final defensive POD.
Thanks community

GloryDays90

Hurn on current form for sure

Charlesy_1

Very tempting, especially with the -44 be as a safety net of sorts

Whatyasmokin

I feel with Hurn it would be chasing a bit, and if things change he could be back to mediocre sc scoring. McGov.

Charlesy_1

That's what I'm leaning toward currently.

Derek

Hurns has benefitted from JJK being back in team and McGovern coming back into defense and this has freed Hurn up to run around the back betting kicks at will

DukeCambridge

Z Williams

Gaz

6 Trades left $280,600 in Bank.

Doc, Laird, Adams, Simmo, Lloyd, Newman (Ryan, Hibberd Nth)
Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Jelwood, Treloar, Hanners, Kennedy (Witherden, Bolton, Cousins)
Martin, Goldy, (strn)
Yeo, Macrae, Dahl, Buddy, Lynch, Greenwood (Young, Eddy)

Options
Lynch to Kennedy/Heeney/Gunston
Newman to Hibberd/Roberton/Hurley

Any suggestions greatly received.

GloryDays90

Get rid of Newman for Hibberd
Trade down Hibberd from North to Conor Glass or Junker.

Then trade Lynch after this weekend… you should consider some ruck cover also

Whatyasmokin

Kennedy should finish big, especially this week against brisbane in perth if you need help getting into a top 8/4 position.

Roberton good value and a great POD, but feel like Hibberd is the best choice (because I have him). Over 20% ownership though whilst Hurley and Roberton under 10%.

Dave2008

8 trades left 27 900 in the bank and set for the top 4.

B Keep Greenwood for first final as F6, Gunston, Mummy and Beams in and Wingard, Pendles and Nank in.

Any thoughts greatly appreciated!

Russty_

Hi Dave, if I were you, with 8 trades!, I'd do a double downgrade this week, Pendles out for Glass and Wingard out for Young….then the next 3 weeks, get whoever you want in.

Dave2008

That sounds like a good option but I am going for league so can I win my first final v Jay Clark's team. I am guaranteed top 4.

Russty_

I wouldn't worry about it mate, if you cash up bigtime you can go bang bang …2 trades for the next 3 weeks and smash all opposition…even if you initially miss the top 4.

Dave2008

Will be in top 4 just want to try and win first final.

Dean Billman

Wingard to Yeo.

Whatyasmokin

One more round before finals, if u don't need to win this round then as Russty says cash up and go bang bang maybe kreuz and another. Really should've ditched pendles last week as time is of the essence and trades plentiful.

Dave2008

Yep I waited as it could have been one week but now yep he has to go. I may bring one of Glass and Young in and bring in a gun this week and then use two more trades the next week.

Whatyasmokin

Sounds like a plan.

Randomcliche2

Just check whether it's better the do a bit of sideways and painting fences rather than double down, esp pendles down as you might be able to 1 down, two sideways and one up to make you team effectively 3 premos stronger come finals week 1. I would look to try something along the lines of pendles wingard to beams and Yeo this week and next week go send Myers and butler packing for gawn and dpp loophole. Try loophole nank and greenwood. Cheers

Dave2008

Some really good options there thanks. I looked into loopholing Nank and Greenwood but their games are too close together.

Dave2008

Or What about Wingard and Butler out for Gunton and Young tihis week then Pendles, Nank for Kruezer, Dusty next week ?

Randomcliche2

If you are 100 percent that won't need and don't want nank then it sounds fine. I watched the telecast of the Hawks match, if Gunston continues to play defence (likely given injuries) he could have a high floor. I wouldn't expect 130s each week though. They were so loose across half back, hell look at hardwick's score. I think JJK has lower risk surprisingly, even though he is Yoyo. I don't know, even though I think there is a fair chance, if Gunston will see the season out in defence.

NickMacMan

Gonna have 2 trades left, do i get dusty or selwood and keep the extra $100,000 for a fix up in finals

Russty_

Save em.

NickMacMan

have to get one cause I'm trading out greene via dpp

Russty_

Oh in that case, Selwood I reckon, save a da money…similar scoring.

NickMacMan

or beams? and save even more

Russty_

Beams is made of glass mate,could go down anytime… Selwood is a solid finisher and high scorer in a good team.

Off The Bench

Yep Selwood

Whatyasmokin

Selwood all the way.

Russty_

Just went the one trade this week, Pickett to Young, and now have cover on all lines.
Leaves me 4 trades, hope that's enough.

Whatyasmokin

Should be, I reckon most people are very very low on trades.

Russty_

Yeah it's been a tough year, hard to hold off the way things have gone, but the ones with trades left will be the winners I think.

Whatyasmokin

I reckon the winners will be the ones lucky enough to have the premos that happen to fire at the right time. I guess what I'm saying is that if you happen to meet someone in the GF and you have a good premo out and no trades, it's more likely this year they'll be in the same boat.

Whatyasmokin

Not saying count on it though and burn all trades hail Mary style lol

Russty_

True man…there's a lot of luck involved as proven premos can spud on any given week, my ultimate goal would be to have 2 left going into the Grand Final and enough cash left to get whoever I want…hope that can happen but it's gonna take some serious restraint lol

Derek

Young isn't the best cover, as he plays a few Sunday games to finish with

DEE

Who do I trade in for Pendles? I think he needs to be traded out now he has a second lot of surgery.
Mids:
Danger, Kelly, Bont, Sloane, Zorko, JPK, Neale, Pendles.
Last week i covered pendles with greenwood but with zorko out i need to trade pendles.
Probably don't have enough to afford mitchell

Also who do i loop out of newman or jones on Friday night? Will loop with witherden.

Too far back to challenge overall so going for league – currently 1 game clear on top.
4 trades left
Thanks

Russty_

Easy Dee…Joel Selwood, gun…and loop Newman cause Jones has been horrible last 3 rounds.

Whatyasmokin

Agree with Russty, Selwood should score as well as any good premo as he has all year basically. Titch is probably the only big anomaly to most being up and down. Can use the saved cash from Selwood to upgrade Newman to a Williams/Roberton type? Leaves two trades for injuries.

Derek

i won't be surprised if Newman misses this week. His role has been taken by Mcveigh and his output has fallen.

he dislocated his finger last week, they might just give him a rest.

Oliver

Greenwood to JJK, Heeney or Ryder? (need to use an extra trade and don't think it's worth it)

Whatyasmokin

JJK, POD and can go big.

Leeds17

Greenwood is such good cover, is there no other trade you could do? JJK is a great option just keep in mind GWS away R22, is a Saturday late arvo game so could maybe loop him that day though.

Derek

i would hold greenwood. I doubt BCrouch will play this week, he will get more TOG and easy 100+

Joe T

Some solid PODs in there Lek. Only have room to go with one of these options this week.

Option 1: Trade Parsons to Yeo and loophole Greenwood with TJ Lynch/Nank on field? Leaves me with $5k

Option 2: Trade Nank to JJK, meaning Greenwood and Lynch on field and losing ruck/fwd DPP. Leaves me with around $230k

Joe T

Just realised

Option 3: Trade Nank to Yeo, meaning Greenwood and Lynch on field and losing ruck/fwd DPP. Leaves me with $140k

SC_Kev7

Like option 1, Joe.

MTUK

Do the league finals work on the same structure as the proper AFL play offs?

So, I'm first in my league – if I win my first play off, I'm then into a Premilinary, bypassing the Semi Finals? So effectively have a week off?

Streeptrain

I believe so, yes.

Daniel Z

Yes, that's how it has worked in the past (I'm assuming they haven't changed it).

Joshua

Nank to Gawn, Martin, Jacobs or McEvoy?

jez_m

Martin.

B rian

Gawn or Martin for sure. Martin should come home well but Gawn could a carve it up. Gawn just for me

no 9th tiger

Balls out this week… 3 trades left and I'm sitting in 9th, 1 win outside the 8. I'm playing 6th. I have way better percentage.
Teams very similar, but his secret weapons are docherty and titch.

I can bring them in, but it'll cost me Pendles (ok) and Ablett (maybe cooked anyway).

Leaves me holding Nank and Greene through finales, but nank for the cover isn't that bad.

What do you think?

neil demons delight

As.long.as.as.its.not.me.in.6th

jez_m

Docherty is the only genuine must-have defender in my opinion on Titch has been the most consistent midfielder this season. Holding Nank is a bit of a concern – the play Freo in Round 22 and I reckon they could genuinely rest him for that game before the finals. Who's your bench cover? Greenwood?

Derek

Hold Ablett. If i was playing a team with Ablett i'd be worried.

mike

Hi Community –

This week i went Wingard = Kennedy & Newman = Roberton

Thoughts?

DANIEL

Gunston POD maybe??

jez_m

Sound like good trades to me, Mike.

DANIEL

I Have both Pendles and Greene in my team, with 86k in bank.

Thoughts on who I should bring in?

Thinking of Yeo, Kennedy or Macrae for Greene. Or other choice?
Thinking of Adams for Pendles for the DPP. Otherwise Merrett, Sloane, Beams?

4 trades left.

SC_Kev7

Macrae for mine. Hardly put a foot wrong this year.

Adams useful if you've got Hibberd/Witherden to swing him with. Otherwise I'd go Zerrett

jez_m

Macrae is a must have. Of the three mids you mentioned, I'd probably go Merrett.

neil demons delight

Both guys got it right Daniel MacRae and Adams

Rivo

Final mid upgrade – Dusty or T-Mitch?

DANIEL

Chop Sticks Martin for sure mate!!!

Rivo

Thanks Daniel. Hope his good form continues.

Finnius123

I personally think Titch, similar ceiling and more consistent

TheGreatBozza

I rate Mitchell slightly above for consistency, but the $40k difference makes Dusty value

Derek

i like TMitch. mainly because he is a pure 100% midfielder. Very rarely goes forward. Where dusty does play some game time in the forward line, which can be good when he kicks a goal or two, but there is risk that the ball is locked in defense when he is forward and he can go for periods of time without a touch. Where TMitch is a ball magnet.

Paul

Who to bring in, Martin and Tuohy or Neale and Roberton?

DANIEL

Neale and Roberton, not sold on tuohy mate.

jez_m

Neale and Roberton

neil demons delight

Next year I think I will set and forget rucks two of gawn kruz and sauce linked with paddy.. This with Doc/Hibberd -Danger/Selwood a STRD equivalent and 2 non playing dpps. .Only 22 to go am I too early

SC_Kev7

Some nice names there but you shouldn't be going x2 non playing dpp's from round 1

neil demons delight

correct but it wont bother me if 2 dpp rookies don't cut it such as pickett and hibbo this year

INPieman

Nic Nat might be too hard to pass up if he gets a heavy discount

SC_Kev7

Probably won't be bargain basement, INP. Thought CD used a lot of discretion in handing out injury discounts this year.

Gaz hardly played in 2015 and was given a 7-10% on his starting price for 2016, reckon we'll see the same for NN. Wager he'll be around 530-540k

Derek

Will gawn get a discount? how many games do they have to play to not get a discount?

INPieman

True Kev. He should get the full 40% for missing the season. But they put JOM's price up when he should have been 180k

neil demons delight

amazing how you forget

Derek

set and forget rucks didn't work this year. Witts and sandi would have been the best starting rucks.

#1 rule for next year will be LONE WOLF RUCKS only.

The Ranger

I don't think you can say that set and forget didn't work.
Anyone who started with Kreuzer and Mummy would be pretty happy right now.

not quite true Derek I started with Sandiwitts then when Sandy went ryder witts with nank forward so sort of a poor mans set and forget Most thought as I did sandi witts could make money but hey they did better I still have witts and don't regret it

Keenbutclueless

Many a twist to come yet. If Goldy gets traded, then Pruess would under consideration. Nicholls has gone completely missing at Gold Coast. Can he re-emerge. He's only got Witts to beat. Would Mummy retire if GES win a flag? Who comes in there?

I agree with Derek, this year showed that you should just look for value wherever you find it. This year it was the rucks, but no guarantee it will be again next year.

The rapid decline of Goldy, the chance that Gawn's 2016 was a one-off and that he returns to an injury risk proposition, Jacobs rise, fall and rise again. All makes set and forget a bit more scary going into next year.

The point that Kruezer and Mummy are 1 and 2 surely shows that. Very very few had either of them. Hard to imagine anyone had both coming in. So going cheap early and trading up to the emerging giants is not such a bad play.

I just say assess on its merits once The preseason trade and injury circus settles down. Then if value presents itself, get on. If we learned anything this year it would have to be that we need to be more flexible in our starting strategy. After 2015 and 2016, who would have thought Sandiwitts was the best strategy in 2017? Not me, and fell behind from the get-go and never caught up.

appreciate your views Keen I Had sandiwitts /nank early and that's exactly what I mean .My ruck set up has been good even when sandy went for ryder mid season.It was a form of bargain basement set and forget that evolved and I don't regret it this year .but not next year IN my opinion kruz gawn and sauce are standouts and another year of not worrying about rucks.Bye the way I had every intention of trading Sandy witts for grundy mum post byes but witts in particular kept going still is cheers and good luck in the finals keen

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Kruez /pruess in the ruck I reckon.with goldy gone to the bombers or Freo
Danger and titch in the mids
Doc, yeo and maybe Blakey back
Gray, Heeney, menegola and curnow fwd.

The Ranger

I think the lack of FWD DPP's has been one of the key differences this year so I'll be keeping a keen eye on whoever gets that.

Have Rockliff as my M8, BROUGHT HIM IN AT 600K, but I have the cash to move him to Dusty to finish my side. Should I bite the bullet with Zorko out for the week?

jez_m

Nah I'd move him on. Reckon Dusty outscores him for the rest of the year regardless of whether Rocky has a good game this week or not.

Jarryd

yeah agreed, thanks mate

I'd like to star by thanking the community for their feedback this year. I'm sitting 3rd in my league, 1 game and percentage clear of 4th (and 1st place in the finals who's team is rolling). I've got 7 trades and $240k to play with

DEF: Doc, Laird, Adams, Howe, Lloyd, Shaw (Ryan, Shaz)
MID: Danger, Fyfe, JPK, Neale, Bont, Treloar, Selwood, Pendles (JDC, Witherden, Cousins)
R: Gawn, Grundy (Cameron)
FWD: Macrae, Yeo, Heeney, Dahl, Nank, Lynch (Bolton, Greenwood)

1st trade will be Pendles to either Merrett (POD against 1st or 2nd), Mitchell (POD against 1st on the ladder) or Dusty (not a POD but good value)

2nd trade I'm considering to offload Nank but not sure who to. I don't need to trade this week as I'm relatively safe in 3rd on the ladder.

Derek

Hold Nank, stick him on the bench and loop with greenwood.

Tigers have the easiest run home and he might still do ok.

He was 8Sc at half time last week in the wet but managed to get to 54sc.

neil demons delight

if it was a choice between nank and lynch I would take nank as you say Derek tiges have a great run and soldo no certainty

TheGreatBozza

Thanks Derek. I'm leaning towards holding, especially considering this is a dead rubber game for me.

I'm still splitting hairs between Kelly, Merrett, Mitchell & Dusty

Heath

My season is really screwed at this point, 2 trades left with both Pendles and Greene still in my team. Either I keep Greene on the bench and wait for his suspension to blow over and trade Pendles to someone of a similar price (maybe Cotchin) or I downgrade Greene to Josh Kennedy and upgrade Pendles to Merret. I'm not sure what to do but I don't think going into the finals with no trades is a good idea.

Undies

Have you got cover for Greene? Pendles has to go, he ain't coming back.

Heath

I've got cover for Greene.

The Ranger

You gotta hold one trade Heath. Pendles – Beams maybe?

oscar

hey guys just wondering how many teams make finals in a 10 team league.

SC_Kev7

Top 8, oscar. Works the same way as an 18 team league (1 v 4, 2 v 3) etc etc

oscar

so only 2 miss out?

SC_Kev7

Yep. If you google the terms and conditions of SuperCoach it's in there.

Tom

Dusty or Titch for Pendles?

Derek

TMitch. mainly because he is a pure 100% midfielder. Very rarely goes forward. Where dusty does play some game time in the forward line, which can be good when he kicks a goal or two, but there is risk that the ball is locked in defense when he is forward and he can go for periods of time without a touch. Where TMitch is a ball magnet.

Josh

Rylan Lester worth a punt? Need to trade out Wingard. Thoughts appreciated…

SC_Kev7

Nah. His floor is terrible. Yeo, Buddy, Heeney all cheaper than Wingard. McLean has had a role change and a good POD pick (.4% of teams) JJK is a bargain at 428k

Defying_Madness

Gawn is confirmed to be playing this week. Great news

ANON1

Need some help with a Draft Trade community.

Got offered Marc Murphy + Jack Sinclair for Dom Tyson and Coniglio. On averages it looks like a steal of a trade for me. Just wondering who thinks who is the better combo, especially since murphy hasn't been as good as he was early on in the season.

JoshF

nank to gawn, Martin or mumford?

James

Need help with the trades this week any help would be appreciated!! 7 trades and $98k left in the bank. Was thinking of going Daniel Lloyd to Conor Glass and then upgrading someone just don't know who.

DEF: Docherty, Hurley, Laird, Simpson, Adams, Shaw (Witherden, Ryan)
MID: Danger, Zorko, Merrett, Fyfe, JPK, Bont, Treloar, Jelwood (Bolton, Cousins, Lloyd)
RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (English)
FWD: Macrae, Franklin, Heeney, Dahlhaus, Nank, Greewnood (Strnadica, Young)

Thanks!!

Cogla13

You've got the trades so go for it. Bringing in Glass allows you to swap Witherden into the midfield to cover for Zorko. I'd also look at fixing you rucks … trade out English and swing back Strnadica so you have the Nank swing backup again before finals start. Ryan is the only rook who can make you cash at the moment.

James

I could possibly go Lloyd to glass, and English to Deluca Cardillo through DPP?

Pete

Hibberd or Roberton for Newman?
Please help! It's been driving me nuts all week long..

Joshua

Hibberd

Cogla13

Roberton's numbers should improve with Montagna gone.
