Let’s get the bad news out of the way. Our Prince of PanicTM, PatchtotheMax, has hung up his cape and the cowl for 2018, preferring an easy life of podcast duties and background cricket noises.

If you caught my 3-week work experience kid write-ups of the Panic Room last year, you can expect more of the same material that our beloved Patch has given us over the years. Simpsons memes, bad decisions, and me linking to you posts and tweets from our Community members that have much better fantasy football brains than I do.

The biggest news in the off-season was Jock, Higgo, and Crouching hanging up the boots, the abacus, and the Pyanmanese children’s stories, respectively, for this year. We mourn them and miss them dearly, but SuperCoach waits for no man, no matter how much of a legend they are.

Our forefathers are fine, they are alive and well. Crouching is a little worse for wear but he’s okay. Jock will forever and always be the Father of Fantasy. He wouldn’t want me to bang on about it, he’s a proud fella, but the lessons he gave to the Community will never be forgotten. I suggest you print off the meme below and hang it somewhere close by as a reminder of the journey you’ll be undertaking this year.

(you can add personal hygiene to that list as well)

THE NEWS (FEAT. ROOKIE ROUND-UP)

Right, enough of the misty eye stuff. Let’s get into it. Remember how much Patch hated Thursday night games? Yeah, I get it now. What the bloody hell is happening with Sunday teams? Danger, Oliver, Nic Nat under injury clouds. West Coast have promised us “three or four” debutants but with half their team leaving or delisted last year this narrows it down to half their list as possible debutants.

In short, Community, yes I absolutely would panic! You have plans for Sunday? Cancel them. Boss wants you to work? You’ve broken your leg but will be in on Monday. Missus giving birth? Tell ‘em to film it and you’ll watch it during the bye rounds when there’s not enough footy on. Oliver WILL play but there’s a few alarm bells going off in the noggin’. He’s playing hurt, not something you want from your $600+k premo that isn’t named Dangerfield. If Nic Nat has been NAMED but it will be his first game in 19 months. Great story. Not for SuperCoach. And Danger? Well he HAS NOT been named, but that fiasco will roll on right up to the bounce on Sunday.

Just a quick reminder about the rolling lockout for round 1. If this article hits the site before 7:25pm stop reading this right now and get in whatever Richmond or Carlton player you want. Players from both teams will be locked out as soon as the siren sounds player. After that you’re bang out of luck, but you can still chop and change anyone from the 16 other teams. As soon as the Sherrin hits the deck for Essendon v Adelaide clash they’ll be locked out too.

Rookies have been the cause of our stress this week. Coaches coming out and naming their debutants for Sunday games has been fantastic. You’d think a rookie being a late out would be an extremely dog move by the coach so if it has been confirmed by an actual news source (and not Sam McClure) they’re debuting feel confident they’ll play.

Rookies named Thursday:

Jarrod Garlett, Paddy Dow

Rookies named Friday:

Tom Doedee, Darcy Fogarty, Lachie Murphy

Rookies named Saturday:

Cameron Rayner, Hunter Clark, Bailey Banfield, Andrew Brayshaw, Dom Barry, Nick Holman, LDU, Sam Murray, Jaidyn Stephenson (No Will Brodie??? – PANIC)

Rookies named Sunday:

Zac Langdon, Aaron Naughton, Billy Gowers, Bailey Fritsch, Lachlan Fogarty, Tim Kelly, Esava Ratugolea, Jake Waterman, Liam Ryan, Daniel Venables

Saad and Stringer will play their first games for Essendon. Hodge and Charlie Cameron will do the same for Brisbane. Rocky, Watts, Weller, Hartung, Impey, Crozier, and Jake Lever are others playing in their new colours for the first time.

Other big news from Sunday teams was Melbourne dropping Angus Brayshaw and Dom Tyson despite both them playing in Melbourne’s two preseason games. The Eagles doing the same to Mark Hutchings. Zac Smith will be a lone wolf as Rhys Stanley missed the cut and GWS had the sense to not let Dawson Simpson be their ruck, instead rushing back Rory Lobb.

CAPTAIN’S CALL

Captain’s call will be phased out this year (thank God, I was the kiss of death last year) as Post_MaSloane is stepping up on Wednesday’s to produce an in depth captain’s article. His first one is massive! Get it here. I will also throw Joel Selwood’s name into the ring for his 250th this weekend against Melbourne. Averages 119 in his past 5 against them and…

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR!

Fantasy Insider are on board with us again in 2018. Daily fantasy is a lot of fun and has a different scoring system to SuperCoach that would make Kane Cornes a happy man. Gone are contested possessions, metres gained and pressure acts, instead focusing on 9 key areas.

Action Points Action Points Action Points
Kick 3 Tackle 4 Hit-out

1

Mark 3 Free kick for 1 Goal

6

Handball 2 Free kick against 3 Behind 1

 

Contests can range from single game contests to full round contests. The app is free to download and free to play, though of course if you jump into a paid contest the payout is higher. If you choose to go down this road don’t be stupid about it, only play with what you can afford. Remember it’s a bit of fun and if you find it’s making you frustrated, step away from it.

Here’s how Fantasy Insider’s famed Lineup Cruncher sees the YUUUUUGE Hawthorn v Collin

 

 

 

 

That’s just what Fantasy Insider think, but the game isn’t played on computers and spreadsheets. In these opening rounds there’s going to be debutants and returning premiums, it’s always a good idea to load up on them so you’re able to take advantage of the high priced stars. I’ve had a look at the lineups and picked out a few that could help.

Mason Cox – $9,250 – RK/FWD. His 12 possession, 4 goal game against the Western Bulldogs would have netted 100DS, if he can replicate that he’s a steal at $9250.

Jarman Impey – $8,300 – FWD. Boom or bust pick. Thought he had a good quarters across the JLT but tends to go missing. Will play across Hawks half-forward line.

James Sicily – $11,450 – DEF. The red mist occurs often for James. -3 for a free against and he’s likely to give away 5 or 6 on a good night. Yet he loves to kick it and can take a grab. High risk/high reward

Will “The Hyphen” Hoskin-Elliot – $12,400 – MID. Expecting a big year from The Hyphen as Collingwood are relying on him a lot more. Had 17 marks and 23 kicks across the JLT series, at +3 for each in Draftstars, his score will rise quickly.

Best of luck for round 1, Community. It’s an exciting time to be a fantasy coach. My scores took a dive when I wrote The Panic Room last year, so if it happens again we’re over, Patch. Finished. You hear me?!

Two of Lambert, Lobb and McLean?

    Johno · 22/03/2018 at 20:56

    Fml of course I picked Lambert

      Rick Grimes · 23/03/2018 at 13:43

      Don't panic, he scored plenty second half. Had a huge tank, ball just didnt go his way. On another day he gets 10 more touches and a couple of goals. I'm sticking fat.

    Bells · 23/03/2018 at 08:08

    Simpson and Lobb named on extended bench. I'm worried.

      Tyruddanaut · 23/03/2018 at 11:42

      Only one will be named, the preferred is Lobb

harry pfluger · 22/03/2018 at 19:05

do i go heeney, billings, mclean and walters or do i bring in devon smith for mclean?

    Sana · 22/03/2018 at 19:13

    Go with your gut Harry. Both have significant potential

Hoot · 22/03/2018 at 19:05

Go Blues

harry pfluger · 22/03/2018 at 19:05

stefan martin or nank?

    Marty · 22/03/2018 at 23:51

    Martin

RougheadNSheSwallows · 22/03/2018 at 19:06

Dow or LDU for Brodie? Carnage

    hedski · 22/03/2018 at 19:10

    Fogarty

    GloryDays90 · 22/03/2018 at 19:11

    I went with Hunter Clarke instead

      RougheadNSheSwallows · 22/03/2018 at 19:13

      Fog poor JS. Hunter it is, forgot about him haha, good call

        hedski · 22/03/2018 at 21:32

        They all have poor js, Fog is a machine.

          Sana · 23/03/2018 at 15:23

          LDU's JS would be best of the lot

BrownlowBoy · 22/03/2018 at 19:06

Will Brodie how did he miss out

    Tyruddanaut · 23/03/2018 at 11:43

    He’s just not that good. He played last year too and they haven’t liked him enough to keep going

    David C · 23/03/2018 at 11:57

    Too many inside midfielders at GC hence Brodie and Barlow missing out.

Johno · 22/03/2018 at 19:08

Surely Brodie will be playing next week right? Is it wise to just leave him on the bench this week to save a trade?

    GloryDays90 · 22/03/2018 at 19:11

    Or you could just change him to Dow, LDU or Clark right now or during the round since its unlimited trades

Sana · 22/03/2018 at 19:10

Coffield and Brodie no love… hmmm

Avssss · 22/03/2018 at 19:11

Nic Nat it Kruezer

TommyC99 · 22/03/2018 at 19:12

FOgarty, Dow or Clark for Brodie?

    RougheadNSheSwallows · 22/03/2018 at 19:19

    Ive gone Clark

      Finnius · 22/03/2018 at 19:40

      So have I at this stage.

Fisherdan · 22/03/2018 at 19:16

Can't decide community.
Save a trade and keep Danger.
Or
Switch Danger to Parker and keep the 200k to get him when he plays?

    GloryDays90 · 22/03/2018 at 19:20

    Keep him, Danger will be back with a bang next game. Don't fall behind like everyone who traded him out will.

    Finnius · 22/03/2018 at 19:39

    I have gone Danger to Ablett and then will trade him back after a couple of rounds… may change my mind by sunday though if he is firming for rd two and my rookie does ok.

hedski · 22/03/2018 at 19:20

PANIC PANIC PANIC!!!!

    Derek · 22/03/2018 at 21:25

    I’m a tea-pot, I’m a tea-pot

    My big POD Barlow didn’t get picked. This is the universe telling me to get Cyril

      hedski · 22/03/2018 at 21:32

      Or Melksham!!!!

      Pitch72 · 23/03/2018 at 09:08

      Don't do it Derek!

    The Ranger · 22/03/2018 at 22:27

    Yeah might just go and have a bit of a panic now Hedski.
    No Danger and Kreuzer injured first game.
    Hilarious.

      hedski · 22/03/2018 at 22:33

      Yep, having crazy thoughts like putting Cox f5 to cover Kreuz to save a trade.

        WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 22:47

        I'm sorry for laughing at your dilemma; it was probably your suggested solution that caused my sides to rupture

          hedski · 22/03/2018 at 23:05

          Have Bundy f5 Trev, ya don't think Coxxie could do OK there while providing ruck support?
          Ahhh ha ha ha ha. Shit my sides are gone too. Love this game.

            Doc_1 · 23/03/2018 at 08:58

            Rhys Stanley an option at F5 for ruck cover?

              hedski · 23/03/2018 at 09:20

              Has a calf injury I think

                Doc_1 · 23/03/2018 at 09:44

                Was in doubt with a calf but has been named at centre half forward.
                Is tempting me.

                  hedski · 23/03/2018 at 11:05

                  He's pretty frail Doc

PANICKING · 22/03/2018 at 19:24

I am panicking please help me.

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Howe, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (Finlayson, Keeffe)

MID: Titch, Oliver, Zerret, Fyfe, Cripps, AndyBrayshaw, Kelly, Barry (Banfield, Garlett, Holman)

RUC: Gawn, Nank (Olango)

FWD: Heeney, Greene, Billings, Smith, Sicily, Fritsch (Giles-Langdon, Ryan)

PLS HELP ME!!!

BrownlowBoy · 22/03/2018 at 19:32

The pre season hype around Curnow died down… and he comes out firing!

    Finnius · 22/03/2018 at 19:33

    Looking like a million bucks at the moment

      WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 20:04

Defying_Madness · 22/03/2018 at 19:36

I started without Garlett so I hope it doesn't burn me

    Finnius · 22/03/2018 at 19:38

    Same…. 🙁

    Finnius · 22/03/2018 at 20:00

    2 in the first fml.

      Defying_Madness · 22/03/2018 at 20:02

      I traded him out 30 seconds before the game which makes it even worse. It was pick Garlett or hope Keefe or Connor are named and I went with the latter.

    WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 20:02

    Me too. He still might break half his joints are already heavily taped.

    Finnius · 22/03/2018 at 20:39

    On 51 at HT… Far out

    Bells · 22/03/2018 at 20:55

    I put him onfield with the scientific reasoning he's a mature age player, he'll at least find it.
    Looking good so far. Doesn't look the type to score well every week though. Hope those elastic bands hold him together.

WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 19:36

hahahahaha @ Ladbrokes. Payup suckers

Finnius · 22/03/2018 at 19:53

How good is Kreuzer?? pick of the year for mine if he stays fit and in only 6% of sides.

    TommyC99 · 22/03/2018 at 20:25

    He is a hit out to advantage machine

    Holty · 22/03/2018 at 20:45

    I thought he was very unlucky not to be All Australian last year. He has been in and out of my team all preseason and opted not to start him. Think i might regret it

    Instant Karma · 22/03/2018 at 21:12

    injured haha

      Russty_ · 22/03/2018 at 21:26

        Instant Karma · 22/03/2018 at 21:41

        Calm down Rust Balls, Was laughing at the irony of Finnius saying ''if he stays fit'' not the actual injury

          Russty_ · 22/03/2018 at 21:48

    Why did you curse him!?

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 23/03/2018 at 09:11

      Hey Lekdog l was just reading your reasoning why you selected Kreuzz!! Im sure it said "Dont worry about his inj history" Little jinx there. Hope to those who did select him hes ok. Was working late last night and heard he was on fire untill then.

        hedski · 23/03/2018 at 09:21

        9 day break so hopefully he gets up.

          Finnius · 23/03/2018 at 12:17

          might not be as bad as we think – if he came back then surely it can't be any worse…

            hedski · 23/03/2018 at 13:07

            Here's hoping, was looking like going big.

FearTheBeard · 22/03/2018 at 19:58

So do I trade Danger for Kelly?

    Holty · 22/03/2018 at 20:46

    Im going ablett. Kelly is a solid choice though

      redherringfc · 22/03/2018 at 20:50

      Picking Ablett is not a wise move. He will miss so many weeks throughout the season. Even if he goes injury free, they will rest him so often. If you really want him, buy him during the last 3rd of the sc season.

Nathan · 22/03/2018 at 20:00

What is up with Kane Lambert? I've only seen him once in the first quarter and he hasn't touched it

    GloryDays90 · 22/03/2018 at 20:26

    I'm already thinking of trading him next week! PATHETIC!

      Tyruddanaut · 23/03/2018 at 17:33

      One of my mates told me to get him…. I forgot and was rewarded

      pod · 23/03/2018 at 17:44

      Hang onto him his work rate is elite.

hedski · 22/03/2018 at 20:02

Last minute league fellas 608303, 5 spots left 👍

    GloryDays90 · 22/03/2018 at 20:10

    Okay not injured. Just hasn't touched it!! Has run 3.5 k and has t touched it!!!! WtF

    Nathan · 22/03/2018 at 20:11

    He has ran the third most distance tonight so surely not.

Cripps 38 Kreuz 51 Garlett 31 qtr time…nice.

    Cornboy looks knackered – but does find the footy. Would help his scores if he laid a tackle or 2 every quarter.

      hedski · 22/03/2018 at 22:50

      Bloody gun

DavidSA · 22/03/2018 at 20:10

No panic here
After some weeks of thinking things over I can't get myself to be interested in SuperCoach this year.
My best memories of SuperCoach were the podcasts from Jock, Higgo and Crouching. They transformed a mediocre game into so much more.
I'm taking this year off too

    hedski · 22/03/2018 at 20:18

    So is your team going to be a zilch in the leagues your in? Should leave them so someone else can get in.
    (Pretty sure your in a couple of the guys on here/Trev's place David?)

      hedski · 22/03/2018 at 20:52

      Onya Dave, Sry ya didn't wanna play but bloody honourable to jump out, hope ya back next year 👍

        The_Blacksheep · 23/03/2018 at 18:47

        Was David in the Rat Pack. Who will fill that final spot?

FearTheBeard · 22/03/2018 at 20:27

So do I trade Danger for Kelly?

😐

    SirSamuel016 · 22/03/2018 at 21:43

    I'd say no but it's up to you. I'm keeping Danger in my side with the hopes he's only missing a week as given his form last season I don't think I can afford to not have him in. Kelly is a good replacement imo but if you have the money you could go up to someone like Tom Mitchell too who should score very well this season too.

Richie Porte · 22/03/2018 at 20:32

L Murphy, Finlayson, S Murray, A Naughton. Have to leave one out, who

    DacZawson · 22/03/2018 at 23:48

    murphy

FearTheBeard · 22/03/2018 at 20:36

Which west coast lads u taking?

Waterman starting?

Venables?

Ryan?

Which 2 you guys thinking?

I have never seen these blokes some help be great!

Langdon as emergency makes me need to do a correction?

    FearTheBeard · 22/03/2018 at 20:52

    Cmon lads 😐

      hedski · 22/03/2018 at 20:55

      None at the moment

        FearTheBeard · 22/03/2018 at 21:06

        Who are you forward rookies?

          hedski · 22/03/2018 at 21:35

          Fritsch, Garlett, Langdon.
          I'd take Venables if I had to.

          HarryH · 22/03/2018 at 21:38

          For what I've researched on the WCE rookies….

          Venables is the top pick. Been likened to Shuey. Think Ryan will be small fwd, limited scoring. But I know bugger all about Waterman sorry so going with Venables my end

            FearTheBeard · 22/03/2018 at 21:40

            Thanks mate just traded ryan to venables and giles to waterman seeing hes an emergency.

            Right move?

            I would move garlett down to forward and try bring in that Shipley to mid but hes already started so cant move garlett 😐

              Northerner · 22/03/2018 at 23:13

              Waterman will be out as soon as JJK back

              TommyC99 · 23/03/2018 at 07:27

              Giles – Langdon has been confirmed to debut this week

            dan · 23/03/2018 at 15:59

            watch the highlights on youtube watermans goal kicking is terrible not a great trait for a tall forward. liam ryan is quick but he is a small forward. vennebles is a strong mid type seems to find space where there isnt any. good disposal. i reakon he will hold his spot over the other 2

    Beezneez · 23/03/2018 at 13:03

    I'm waiting till Sunday teams are named tonight at about 6:00. I currently have Giles-Langdon, Keeffe and Ryan in my team. Venables is probably the pick of the WC players although Waterman is named on field. Waterman is the son of Chris and is a lead up forward with strong hands and shows promise as a third tall. For me, I need to see who's actually named before making a decision. Murphy for Keeffe if Keeffe is out. T Kelly is also on an extended bench means will have to look at Constable, L Fogarty, Ainsworth Shipley and Bonar. Hunter Clark would be my pick but, unfortunately, I don't have the $$$.

BrownlowBoy · 22/03/2018 at 20:39

Townsend is a bit of a flog?

    hedski · 22/03/2018 at 23:07

    Can kick straight BB.

      BrownlowBoy · 23/03/2018 at 08:17

      Yes he can, has a beautiful kick on him.

    Dice · 23/03/2018 at 09:38

    he is the toughest bastard in the comp that bloke!

      BrownlowBoy · 23/03/2018 at 19:03

      Don't think he tops Selwood and Hodge just yet…

GloryDays90 · 22/03/2018 at 20:40

Simpson has 93 at half time!!! OMFG!! Why didn't we pick him….

    WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 20:47

    someone was saying something about teeth. we should have remembered that you don't use your teeth in footy. I'm rethinking heater now

    Lekdog · 23/03/2018 at 08:49

    He hasn’t played this role since 2016, including JLT…frustrating

    Rick Grimes · 23/03/2018 at 13:39

    Might cop a tag if he keeps dominating like that.

    Soothsayer · 23/03/2018 at 16:53

    I have him, can’t tag him, the only Carlton player I pick every year, although joined by Cripps this season. He looks 25.

WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 20:40

To few blues in my team I think 1 might not be enough. I might have a marchbank and a curnow if they continue at the same rate

GAZ · 22/03/2018 at 20:44

Since Barlows not playing whio should i get Mundy or who i like Mundy but is there better option

    Derek · 22/03/2018 at 21:27

    Cyril

Jack · 22/03/2018 at 20:48

tempted to loophole Garlett with a non playing rookie especially with the lack of scoring ability with the forward rookies…

hedski · 22/03/2018 at 20:54

Gator, Shake and Brownlow Boy, you now have a spare spot in The Rat Pack, Up there Cazaly and SC Elites, Dave has fallen on his sword and freed up a spot, salute him community, done the right thing. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="💂" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f482.svg"&gt;

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 22/03/2018 at 22:36

    Tnx for the heads up Hedski but only just walked in from work.

      hedski · 22/03/2018 at 22:52

      Leagues still open until the first bounce of the last game Sunday Shake.
      You got Kreuz??

        Shake_n_Bake_ · 23/03/2018 at 08:01

        Tnx Hedski. No l stuck with Nank! Very lucky nearly made the switch! I just thought the $480k compared to over $600 and the slight inj he got in the last JLT made me stick with Nank.

          gator59 · 23/03/2018 at 13:15

          Thanks hedski… I'm in Tassie on holidays with limited reception…bugger

            hedski · 23/03/2018 at 14:28

            neil demons delight · 23/03/2018 at 14:46

            don't drink too much Gator its no good for you and keep an eye open for a baldock hart or a Lyon enjoy the holiday mate

neil demons delight · 22/03/2018 at 21:07

With TmcDonald out PEDERSON comes into play now particularly coupled to the septic

BrownlowBoy · 22/03/2018 at 21:09

Kreuzer down

    FearTheBeard · 22/03/2018 at 21:11

    😐

Connor · 22/03/2018 at 21:09

1. Dropped Simpson after JLT 2 (even though he had been my first picked prior)

2. Swapped Martin for Mitchell 2 mins before game

3. Opted not to go Cripps cause I wanted to be different (and convinced myself he wasn't THAT good)

4. Topped it off by subbing Garlett onto the bench 2 mins before game as well…

Its' a great game isn't it 😐

    Post_MaSloane · 22/03/2018 at 21:15

    You won't be the only one mate, I'm feeling the same 😅

        Don't worry ConDog, you don't need to try super hard to get about a 70 ATAR so she'll be right mate

Gord29 · 22/03/2018 at 21:21

LDU, Clark or Barry?
That’s everyone doing with danger too

WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 21:38

Lobbe or Philips? or will they stay with Levi who turns out to be better as a ruck than a forward 14 hitouts and more to advantage than Nank in a qrtr and a bit

    Russty_ · 22/03/2018 at 21:41

    Hi Trev, looks like Kreuz is back on now so have to see if he gets through the quarter.

      WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 22:17

      Yeah coming back didn't help him Russty 4-6 weeks regardless of Mondays report

      WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 22:19

      What's with the rolling avatars mate? Is that a very humorous dig at things?

        Russty_ · 22/03/2018 at 22:30

        That's me mate, Death from above for all below me lol, I like to change it up.

Kreuz is back!!!

    FearTheBeard · 22/03/2018 at 21:47

    Cmon you big prick. Be alright lol. Don't need a forced trade already!

    WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 22:16

    4-6 weeks hedski

      hedski · 22/03/2018 at 22:39

      Will be at least 1, we'll wait for the prognosis yeah?

        WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 23:12

        Nah mate he's gone until the price rise and then will be conscious of it for weeks cut you losses and swap him this week

FearTheBeard · 22/03/2018 at 21:46

You lads keeping Tim Kelly if hes emergency? Constable on bench ? Is he a goer or Shipley?

    BrownlowBoy · 22/03/2018 at 21:51

    He's playing

      FearTheBeard · 22/03/2018 at 21:54

      Oh ok on footy live has him as emergency.

      thanks man

        hedski · 22/03/2018 at 22:40

        Stupid extended sunday bench

    Beezneez · 23/03/2018 at 13:05

    On an extended bench – see my reply to your previous post.

Defying_Madness · 22/03/2018 at 21:48

Yikes had a nap and it looks like starting Kreuzer was a mistake

WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 22:15

Dusty Bontempelli
How did he outscore Cripps Derek?

    Derek · 22/03/2018 at 22:36

    I’ll be looking very close at those Hard Ball Gets 🙂

      WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 22:39

      I didn't see cripps get any easy ones

    Clueless · 23/03/2018 at 08:22

    More score involvements and less clangers is what I assume to be the cause of that

      Derek · 23/03/2018 at 08:32

      Having Kruze tapping to him was helpful. He had to work harder in the second half when Kruze injured and he turned the ball over a few times because of the pressure. Martins goal came from a Cripps lose handball.

      Captain Risky · 23/03/2018 at 08:48

      17 to 4 score involvements.

      dan · 23/03/2018 at 16:03

      40 – 50 metre pin point kicks into the forward line score well dusty was nailing them last night

GloryDays90 · 22/03/2018 at 22:17

Nank was good.

Lambert was terrible but finished well.

Garlett will be a good cash cow

So angry that I didn't pick CRIPPS!

    Russty_ · 22/03/2018 at 22:32

    Tell me about it GD, didn't pick Cripps, Curnow, Simpson or Martin..hooray! on a more positive not, I tipped Tigers by 20.

      GloryDays90 · 22/03/2018 at 22:34

      Oh well we have to back our sides now and stay the course. I'm just glad Lambert showed something so I don't have to trade him. 71 after his start is pretty good Tbh!

        Russty_ · 22/03/2018 at 22:36

        Yeah that's salvageable..he'll be ok.

          WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 22:42

          Swap him for Curnow now Russty

            Russty_ · 22/03/2018 at 22:49

            I don't have Lambert Trev, I'm yet to find out how crap my forwards are compared to Curnow.

              WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 22:51

              Yeah my team is pretty crap after only a single game of the first round. I need to get over my aversion to Carlton players in my SC team. I might turn Jaeger into Steven what do you think?

                Russty_ · 22/03/2018 at 22:55

                I think Jack will smash it this year mate….he's fully fit again, racks up possessions with the best of them.

                  WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 23:14

                  It would mean not getting Danger until 4 or 5

          GloryDays90 · 22/03/2018 at 22:50

          I'll give him one more week haha then if he is no good I'll trade him

        pod · 23/03/2018 at 07:25

        70 odd after quarter time saves his ass, i was ready to rage trade him. I love his effort and work rate.

    Captain Risky · 22/03/2018 at 23:22

    5 Frees Against for Nank, still got 95.

    Cripps looked bloody good! unfortunately not in my side.

    VC on Dusty- 139 good enough!

      Derek · 22/03/2018 at 23:33

      Kruzer only played half a game. Nank should have done better

        Shake_n_Bake_ · 23/03/2018 at 09:17

        Kreuz was on fire early but Nank did finish with 95 with 5 frees against! Take that away might of finished with 110.

      Russty_ · 22/03/2018 at 23:41

      I'd take that Captain!…especially this week.

    Venables

Bells · 22/03/2018 at 22:27

Hopefully one week for Kruez only as a precaution. BIt of dencorub on the groin, if his hand slips he'll be moving around quicker than Jetta in the GF v Riolli.
Speaking of Jetta is Garlett related? – he goes about as hard at the contest. A bit quiet late, but should hold his spot.
Anyone holding Dow might be worried though…

Bells · 22/03/2018 at 22:34

If Kruez goes down then I'm getting in 'The Enforcer' , Adelaide's finest – Paddy Ryder.

Anyone willing to not only chase burglars from his home, get in a car chase, then chase them again, drag them home and call the cops?
That man deserves to be in my SC team. For the next 4 years. At least.
http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-03-22/ryder-famil

    WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 22:45

    Brilliant thanks for that Bells.
    After Kreuz's injury when I don't have him I can now scrap Cox and get Paddy without wasting a trade

TheGreatBozza · 22/03/2018 at 22:35

Went Nank to Kruez 5 mins pre lockout. First of many FMSC moments

Shake_n_Bake_ · 22/03/2018 at 22:39

So lucky for now l went with Nank over Kruz. I was so tempting In getting Kruz last min but that inj in last JLT swayed it. Looks like he was on fire early to!

WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 22:41

On a happier note all of those gambling Vultures who use the tag 'we pay out if your team gets 24 points up' had to pay everybody

    Kurnow · 22/03/2018 at 22:44

    Fantastic. Hope they continue to do so. Too many gambling ads.

BlueBaggerJosh · 22/03/2018 at 22:45

Looks like first corrective trade, Weitering to marchbank. Will give it one more week but Marchy looked brilliant unlike Weiters

    BockChoy · 23/03/2018 at 08:48

    I thought Weitering was lost without a direct opponent to compete against. Carlton were too tall in defence.

      Dutchy · 23/03/2018 at 14:29

      Weitering shows nothing, he’ll be lucky to be in the side in a few weeks! Should have asked a Carlton supporter before selecting him!!

    Captain Risky · 23/03/2018 at 08:52

    Thinking the same. Last minute FMSC moment and I put in Weitering.

      leedy · 23/03/2018 at 14:42

      Don't feel too bad … I went Brandon Ellis in Wonderland which is where I think he probably was or maybe I was when I settled on him!

WoW_Trevor · 22/03/2018 at 22:49

Swans2012 · 22/03/2018 at 22:53

I think I've got a problem, im considering omeara again, someone stop me……I think the problem is that there are so many leftover points in that hawk midfield, it's just so bloody enticing

    Derek · 22/03/2018 at 23:30

    I have same thoughts

    JOM has been in my team all preseason.

    He shouldn’t do any worse than 80’s

    .

    Russty_ · 22/03/2018 at 23:33

    Was tossing up between the 2 for ages but I'm going with Armitage.
    This could be O'Meara's year though.

    Bells · 23/03/2018 at 00:36

    Really?? A one legged footballer who only handballs? This is your path to victory?
    Even if he does start off averaging 100 you just KNOW he's not going to run out the year. He'll be lucky to run out the dressing room.

      Russty_ · 23/03/2018 at 00:59

      No one knows anything yet…who's your preferred pick over O'Meara?

      Derek · 23/03/2018 at 08:49

      Are you a Hawks fan?

      People at hawthorn are very confident he is good and will get even better as he gets games.

      For $315k what does he need to score to justify his place? I’ll take 85+ That will make him a good stepping stone for a fallen premium in round 5-6.

      Right now he isn’t in my team, but the day has just started.

        Swans2012 · 23/03/2018 at 09:38

        I can't see any worse than 80 if they drop him in the middle of the ground and let him stand there accumulating which I think they will, problem is he'd be replacing a decent mid rookie (one of kelly, Barry, banfield or Holman) which concerns me.
        You know I might just hold this week and see what plays out week one and two, keep my 200k in the bank and then use it after round 2. just doesn't feel right having 200k just sitting there but allows flexibility if my midpricers look like failing as well….

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 23/03/2018 at 08:13

      i'm with Swans. He takes the place of a rookie who will make good cash, i'd prefer the cash

Peter · 22/03/2018 at 23:05

Petracca & Christensen + 35k

    good question. never heard of him, but hope he plays more than 2 games.

      Derek · 23/03/2018 at 08:42

      I’m surprised he is playing, but his game in JLT2 was very good. $102k you have to pick him.

      Pecks1970 · 23/03/2018 at 12:52

      Got a 75 and a 52 in JLT

    Steeeve · 23/03/2018 at 11:55

    Not good. But hey injuries happen. Could find a place long enough to make us money

    Beezneez · 23/03/2018 at 13:16

    He looks good. Crows development squad. Won the Northern Knights U18 B@F in 2016 from just 10 games. If he plays well he is a chance to stay in. Would think Milera, Gallucci and Riley Knight would have been the preferred players but they all have had injury setbacks. I might have to pick him if Keeffe isn't named and have no worries with his abilty to score well..

GloryDays90 · 22/03/2018 at 23:25

Should I stay with McGovern or turn him into someone else?
I have 130k to play with.

    Russty_ · 22/03/2018 at 23:27

    Maybe turn him into Simpson next week if he spuds it.

Hey guys wasn't sure where to ask but what happened to the cheat sheets this year?

    Russty_ · 23/03/2018 at 00:22

    Was a late start to the year, Jock, Crouching and Higgo left JR, Patch, Lekdog and Postmasloane, Kev and Damo are doing it now.
    Wasn't time do do cheatsheets.

      Richie Porte · 23/03/2018 at 05:56

      No Jock, wtf, what happened

        The Ranger · 23/03/2018 at 12:58

        The legend goes that Crouching lost his shit after the Richmond granny and Higgo and Jock are now nursing him back to sanity in a remote location somewhere in southern Victoria. Caths there too I think.
        Still no news on Wayno.

          Richie Porte · 23/03/2018 at 16:32

          Fair dinkum lol

    Bells · 23/03/2018 at 00:38

    There's a no cheating policy. Strictly enforced.

      Russty_ · 23/03/2018 at 00:52

      A cheatsheet isnt cheating so what are you talking about? It's a relative term, not a literal term.

        TheSwindler · 23/03/2018 at 12:52

        Gee lighten up Rusty

matt · 23/03/2018 at 01:40

wats r peoples thoughts will D barry or N holman score better this round considering there opposition?

    Ja191 · 23/03/2018 at 05:48

    Holman, looked very good in jlt and is playing norf

      Derek · 23/03/2018 at 08:39

      Suns have no one else in their midfield. Gaz gone. Hall injured. Barlow, my big POD didn’t make the team.

Rocksta · 23/03/2018 at 02:54

Brayshaw, Fogarty or LDU?

    SCdonkey · 23/03/2018 at 09:08

    If i had to pick one out of those 3, I'd say Brayshaw. Unfortunately I don't have any of them in my side, Brayshaw worries me under Ross, Forgarty JS is super thin as a tin foil, LDU did not do much in JLT for me to be even worth considering. If one of them performs well in RD 1 and 2 will probably pick one up when in the bubble.

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 23/03/2018 at 09:55

      Hey Donkey had a spot re open in, Up There Cazaly. l invited Swan aswell because had a drop out. So 1st in league code 212948. Let me know.

        Nifty · 23/03/2018 at 14:56

        Hey Shake, any spare spots?

paul · 23/03/2018 at 05:35

Carlton has a easy run too. Curnow will do well.

Don · 23/03/2018 at 06:22

Thoughts on Ellis-Yolmen community? Seemed to have some very good numbers during the JLT but maybe a question mark over JS?

Michael · 23/03/2018 at 06:34

Should I loophole Cripps 130?

    Ja191 · 23/03/2018 at 07:45

    Yeah take that and run

    Finnius · 23/03/2018 at 12:11

    Yes.

Borko · 23/03/2018 at 07:15

Who scores more in first half of the season?
1. Danger-Armitage-McLean
2. Zorko-Rockliff-Lobb

Don't have Dusty so a bit worried about going in without him AND Dangerfield … but option 2 is a real POD and, dare I say it, a bit of a shark move?

    GAZ · 23/03/2018 at 08:23

    2
    Zorko GUN

Fearthebeard · 23/03/2018 at 07:38

Hey lads:

Which two of venablea, Giles Langdon, Ryan, waterman?

    Clueless · 23/03/2018 at 08:13

    Langdon and Ryan.

    INPieman · 23/03/2018 at 08:24

    When JJK comes back that might spell trouble for Waterman

      Derek · 23/03/2018 at 08:36

      Reports from WCE practice games say that Venables is pure midfield. If he plays I like the sound of that with so many holes in their mids

Bells · 23/03/2018 at 08:11

I guess I gotta take Dusty's VC score of 139 – though I'm worried Fyfe or Tich will go large.

    KSinny · 23/03/2018 at 08:21

    Yeh same here

    Derek · 23/03/2018 at 08:34

    It will test my 140 min VC rule for this year.

    I’m a weak man, will probably take it

      Finnius · 23/03/2018 at 12:10

      140 is huge!! I am going 120 as a general rule of thumb.

      Dutchy · 23/03/2018 at 14:36

      How you taking it? Who’s your donut man?

        Bells · 23/03/2018 at 16:57

        Cameron for me.

      SC_Sixty6 · 23/03/2018 at 15:59

      Wow 140 Derek. I'm 125 personally.

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 23/03/2018 at 09:56

    Dont guess!!!! Just take it.

    Defying_Madness · 23/03/2018 at 12:11

    I am taking it

    DacZawson · 23/03/2018 at 12:56

    Don't get greedy

    leedy · 23/03/2018 at 14:43

    Go on, roll the dice, you know you could do better 🙂

    redherringfc · 23/03/2018 at 15:16

    Roll the dice. It’s not going to cost you a round win.

GAZ · 23/03/2018 at 08:16

Krezer how long he gone for

John · 23/03/2018 at 08:16

Danger and Whitfield

Or

Oliver and Kelly with 40k

    GAZ · 23/03/2018 at 08:24

    2

    johnno2908 · 23/03/2018 at 09:53

    2, as Oliver and Kelly will both be keepers. Although slightly worrying news about the Oliver injury.
    But if you really want to keep Danger, you have the opportunity to use the rookie loophole (Banfield/Holman) score first and leave the decision until Sunday as Melbourne, GWS and Geelong all play then. Is Dangerfield guaranteed for round 2?

Jarrod · 23/03/2018 at 08:51

Hey guys I want to know what I should do.

Sicily (F5) and Rookie Midfielder (M6)

or

Coniglio (M6) and Waterman/rookie (F5)

    Soothsayer · 23/03/2018 at 16:59

    Option 2 for me. Coniglio more reliably big than Sicily. Pick the Sic if he goes big

      Maverick · 23/03/2018 at 17:00

      2. Cogs with venables?

    MAcboi · 24/03/2018 at 10:42

    sic more likely to be a keeper plus an extra 50k and more reliable mid rookie

Sc_Wow · 23/03/2018 at 08:51

Anyone heard news on kruse?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/03/2018 at 09:32

    Bolts said last night lost movement in his groin and couldnt jump. Will know more next 48 hrs but that sounds a bit grim – long termish.

    INPieman · 23/03/2018 at 09:52

    He started so well. Then reminded us he breaks easily. At least it's only 1 trade with change if he's stuffed

    Finnius · 23/03/2018 at 12:09

    Even if he misses one I will be getting rid of him. The fact he came back is a good sign but he looked seriously hampered out there. Groins can hang around for too long for my liking – so if he isn't named I will be picking Stef. (If it is only one week then no point going to Ryder as they will average the same and both miss a week, so you are only really burning a trade).

Whitey · 23/03/2018 at 08:56

Ok, I need a maths expert. Deciding to not start Danger but will pick him up in round 4 and want to know who people think will rise in price but is still considered a 'premo or near premo'. Looking at Rockliff, Stevens, Libba, Whitfield.

Cheers in advance community.

    SC_Kev7 · 23/03/2018 at 09:09

    You’d still need a fair bank to turn any of those into Danger by R4. Around 170k. Rocky has the best ceiling but also an interrupted preseason. Not sure it’s worth the hassle, Whitey

    SCdonkey · 23/03/2018 at 09:19

    Whitfield, Cogs, Libba seems to be a popular mid price pick in the guts. If that is your plan to downgrade Danger for one of those players, you have to be very discipline and stick with that plan. If those guys are pumping 110+ ave in the first 3 or 4 round. I'm afraid people will get stuck on trying to get Danger in the side most of the season.

Tommo09 · 23/03/2018 at 09:13

I think I might keep Danger for this week
And I’m going with Gawn and NicNat I’m the ruck

Thoughts?

    Mystic Mac · 23/03/2018 at 11:05

    I like it Tommo.
    I've gone with Lycett until Nic Nat gets some games under his belt. Will then make the trade.
    I think Lycett can average 80 whilst Nic is on reduced minutes to start the season.

    INPieman · 23/03/2018 at 11:56

    Nic Nat hasn't played AFL for a long time. Very risky. I'm also holding Danger this week. Word is he's back next week

      Tommo09 · 23/03/2018 at 12:14

      I know I know
      However I am saving a trade by keeping Danger so that it what I’m telling myself

      Nic could even be a late searching and leave me with Lycett

Shake_n_Bake_ · 23/03/2018 at 09:30

Question time, Who do you think scores the most just this week Parker Kennedy or Selwood??

    SCdonkey · 23/03/2018 at 09:39

    Tough one Shake

    If had to base it on JLT form, I'd say Parker. Kennedy is consistent and safer bet. Selwood without Danger may get some of the points, but Gaz is in and he has Menegola and Duncan fighting for those points.

    Toss of a coin for me.

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 23/03/2018 at 09:58

      Hey Donkey had a spot open up in Up There Cazaly. Had a drop out. hope you can still jump in League code 212948.

        SCdonkey · 23/03/2018 at 10:01

        Thanks shake, tried jumping in it's full.

          Shake_n_Bake_ · 23/03/2018 at 10:09

          Invited yourself and Swan he just jumped in. Only invited the two of you. Had a drop out only found out when Hedski told me. Tnx thou Donkey.

    Derek · 23/03/2018 at 11:17

    i read that Selwood usually has massive Milestone games

Goose · 23/03/2018 at 09:32

The nank to kruz plan is off to a good start.
Wonder if my get Danger plan will start off as hoped…..
Or completely unravel into an early season nightmare

Dan · 23/03/2018 at 09:32

I have a huge dilemma…… Do I
1. Keep W.Brodie and N.Coffield and hope that they will play next round, or
2. Trade W.Brodie to H.Clarke (Stk) and N.Coffield to L.Murphy (Adl), or
3. Trade W.Brodie & N.Coffield, swing Finlayson to Mid & bring in R.Bonner (Pta) & L.Murphy (Adl) in defence.

Need help & guidance. Did not sleep last night………

    Ocka · 23/03/2018 at 09:53

    Then Dan, you are taking SC too seriously. To help you sleep better, option three by a mile.

      Dan · 23/03/2018 at 10:26

      Thanks for your help Ocka. Is Bonner really that good? What do you think he will average?

    Derek · 23/03/2018 at 11:16

    rule #1 Get the right rookies.

    if they are not playing that is a bad start

    Finnius · 23/03/2018 at 12:06

    I took option 2 when faced with the same conundrum. I don't think Bonner is going to make enough money, and I would rather start that extra 140k elsewhere.

    JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2018 at 14:09

    Option 2 no worries.

Shake_n_Bake_ · 23/03/2018 at 09:36

Who to start Naughton Doedee Murphy or Finlayson?? Need to start 2.

    SCdonkey · 23/03/2018 at 09:49

    Atm I have Naughton, Doedee and Finlayson on field Murphy(E) O'connor may become a loophole for me down back if he doesn't play. Even if O'connor doesn't get a run he'll stay there, I think he'll get gig at some stage.

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 23/03/2018 at 10:12

      I already have Murray but only can start 2 from the other 4 l mentioned.

      Derek · 23/03/2018 at 11:15

      i'm thinking the same Donkey. i really like the look of O'Connor and confident he will get games. But if he doesn't to start with i like his DPP. was looking at him in the guts and if Murphy does well swing Finlayson into the midfield

      Finnius · 23/03/2018 at 12:05

      Going Murphy over O'Connor atm

    Finnius · 23/03/2018 at 12:05

    Murphy, Naughton, Finlayson -> Doedee doesn't have the ceiling for me

    JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2018 at 14:12

    Naughton & Finlayson

BrownlowBoy · 23/03/2018 at 09:39

So who else didn't start with Cripps?

    INPieman · 23/03/2018 at 09:53

    Guilty

      Derek · 23/03/2018 at 11:13

      went without. gee kruzer was looking for him everytime . he will miss the big fella

    KSinny · 23/03/2018 at 10:44

    Got him in last minute 😁

Dice · 23/03/2018 at 09:41

Shai Bolton will take mark of the year this season. That boy has springs as kneecaps

    Tibor · 23/03/2018 at 10:02

    He would want to hang on to a couple and put a few contenders in because the 20 points he earned last night don't cut it

      Dice · 23/03/2018 at 10:47

      Supercoach points don't warrant team selection. Got a lot of cyril about him

Juzzy · 23/03/2018 at 09:42

G'Day All.

Like a lot of us this Kreuzer thing is doing my head in. I am now contemplating bringing Cox into my fwd line as insurance but it has to happen today without wasting a trade. It also may involve ditching Danger so my structure isn't buggered … Am I jumping at shadows ?

Might be smarter to stick it out, wait for a medical report, and suck up a trade next week if needs be.

    red5 · 23/03/2018 at 10:23

    I'm thinking English (FWD/RUC) as R3 & Cox in FWD as a swing / cover

      Dojo_Warrior · 23/03/2018 at 13:40

      Been running Cox at F5 for a while as I have Ryder as R2. He's 30k more than Christensen who I had there, however he covers a donut, and shows he has a high ceiling. He's sharing ruck duties with Grundy, and signed a 2 year extension recently, so the pies are obviously committed to the experiment!

      He will definitely have a few 40-50 point stinkers, however I'm hoping he can average 70 odd until the bye rounds and be an easy upgrade to a premo forward after covering Ryder's bye.

      Risky move but I think there's quite a bit of upside!

Jacob Gown · 23/03/2018 at 09:51

Can someone help me out??
Need to finalise my 8th mid spot need a rookie. Looking at going a cheaper option than LDU or Stephenson. Geelongs extended bench is what im looking at, and we know that Kelly will play. Would appreciate thoughts on who would play this sunday, out of Constable, Fogarty, or O'connor? Thanks

    Clueless · 23/03/2018 at 10:02

    What about Clark? If not him then probably O'connor

      Derek · 23/03/2018 at 11:10

      i like O'Connors DPP

    BrownlowBoy · 23/03/2018 at 10:12

    As a Geelong fan, I hope Fogarty.

      hedski · 23/03/2018 at 11:10

      Is Constable number 41 BB? Looked real good in Colac against bombers.
      Did you fill the spot in your league?

        hedski · 23/03/2018 at 11:34

        My bad that's Jones, got mixed up, remember Constable killed it though

D.M DOG · 23/03/2018 at 10:13

hey guys –

Can we still make unlimited trades or are the teams now locked and will count as a formal trade??

Thanking you in advance!

    Holty · 23/03/2018 at 10:26

    You can still trade as many times as needed. Wont cost u a trade. But obviously u cant move or trade anyone who has already played

      murray · 23/03/2018 at 11:07

      thanks Holty good to know

One Touch Wonder · 23/03/2018 at 10:16

I’m locked and loaded. Team is full of SHARK PODS.

Simpson, Shaw, Mills, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson – Murphy, O’Conner

Ablett, Dustin, Oliver, Zorko, Parker, Bontempelli, Brayshaw, Holman – Banfield, Garlett, Kelly

Gawn, Naitanui – Hayes

Heeney, RGray, DSmith, Lobb, Cox, McCartin – Venables, Fritsch

Happy with going Simpson instead of Laird. Not happy paying $750k for Danger if he isn’t 100%. Everyone will be wanting Ablett next week. Zorko, Parker, Oliver, Ablett and Bont in the guts all with low ownership is a SHARK MOVE. Starting with Robbie on bench this week. Dog Dog goes straight into the ruck with Big Cox as cover. If Lobb not named he will become Sicily.

I’m ready.

    Derek · 23/03/2018 at 11:08

    Simpson was a good call

    Beezneez · 23/03/2018 at 13:46

    Robbie Gray is suspended round 1

FearTheBeard · 23/03/2018 at 10:40

Which 1 lads my last headache for the side : Giles Langdon, Ryan, waterman

    Fearthebeard · 23/03/2018 at 12:28

    Lads?????

      Clueless · 23/03/2018 at 12:54

      Giles-Langdon

    DacZawson · 23/03/2018 at 12:54

    I've gone Giles Langdon but you can't be sure with job security, so Ryan could be an alright pick as well. Just don't pick Waterman

BrownlowBoy · 23/03/2018 at 10:52

Ryan and Venables will play as well as Waterman

    Derek · 23/03/2018 at 10:56

    i like what i'm hearing about Venables. will play midfield.

      BrownlowBoy · 23/03/2018 at 11:03

      Same here Derek, he's not in my team at the moment but might need to make room for him. Current forward line is:
      Heeney, Billings, Walters, Smith, Taberner, Fritisch, Ryan, Langdon

      Not sure who to cull?

        FearTheBeard · 23/03/2018 at 11:07

        Will answer my question too lol. Waterman Langdon or Ryan as last forward?

        INPieman · 23/03/2018 at 11:57

        Venables a corrective for me. Doesn't get much of the pill

Tom · 23/03/2018 at 10:53

Hurley or savage

    Derek · 23/03/2018 at 10:59

    there will be games where Savage gets plenty of attention and will give you a 50. but he will provide a few 100+ scores.

    Hurley had a great year 2017 and few think he can repeat it. Goddard will be playing in defense this year not sure what effect that will have. I'm just not confident with him even being in top 6 defenders.

    Of the two i would go Hurley, but i'll be waiting to see how he goes and maybe get him cheaper.

KSinny · 23/03/2018 at 10:54

2 out of Toby Mclean, Devon Smith and Petracca

    Derek · 23/03/2018 at 11:08

    Devon for sure.

    we are not sure how much midfield time the other two will get. Dogs have many Midfielders/forwards (bit like actresses/waitresses, not many of them get many acting roles, but do plenty of waitressing)

    with viney out of melb team, i think petracca might be worth a go for the lower price

      FearTheBeard · 23/03/2018 at 11:10

      McLean at the moment for me. Most people advised me of so LOL.

    Willymack1234 · 23/03/2018 at 11:13

    Smith & Petracca

      FearTheBeard · 23/03/2018 at 11:19

      May I ask why people are now saying Tracca over McLean?

      Before it was expect McLean to average 95+ and Tracca likely won't move much as he is pushing forward a bit

    Finnius · 23/03/2018 at 12:01

    Smith and Mclean

    JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2018 at 14:14

    I couldn't make up my mind,so put all three in.

Mike · 23/03/2018 at 11:02

2 spots remaining
971922

Carl · 23/03/2018 at 11:30

In a bit of a pickle,

Would you rather a midfield of Danger and Whitfield with a rookie in the forward line of 102k

Or

Any 2 other midfielders (such as Kelly and crouch) with Venables in the forward line and a spare 30k?

Let me know your thoughts

    Finnius · 23/03/2018 at 12:00

    Wayyy prefer option one.

Ken · 23/03/2018 at 11:34

Matt crouch or Clayton Oliver?

    JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2018 at 14:16

    I did have both,but with the injury cloud hanging over Oliver,traded him out,so Crouch.

Tommy · 23/03/2018 at 11:35

Predictions for top 10 in midfield come season end?

    Steeeve · 23/03/2018 at 15:14

    In order, for total points (barring injury):
    Tom Mitchell, Dangerfield, Dusty, Oliver, Fyfe, Kelly, Cripps, Pendlebury, Merrett, M Crouch

    Left out Gaz because he will miss games guaranteed. I'd expect Zorko, Sloane and Neale to be in contention as well, along with maybe JPK and Luke Parker. Bont could be up there too but may sit forward too much.

    That's my list and unless someone else breaks out unexpectedly I want to make sure my final 8 mids are only from that pool of guns. I already have five in my starting team.

Liam · 23/03/2018 at 11:46

Which 2 midfielders do you pick out of zorko, crouch, kelly

    Derek · 23/03/2018 at 12:28

    your byes might swing it. i'd go Crouch but my bye structure is not good

MRmoMAN · 23/03/2018 at 11:46

are we all keeping danger??!?!?!?

    INPieman · 23/03/2018 at 11:58

    I am. I can see it doing my head in trying to get him in in a few weeks

      Mystic Mac · 23/03/2018 at 12:00

      Couldn't agree more

      Derek · 23/03/2018 at 12:25

      i changed danger to Dusty last night and was going to keep the cash in bank and burn a trade dusty back to danger.

      The round 14 bye doesn't allow me to have both.

      Dusty did look ok last night………… my head is done

    Finnius · 23/03/2018 at 12:00

    I am. Jon Ralph 'guarantees' that he will play next week against Hawthorn, and if he scores 200 more points than anyone else over the course of the season I will happily cop a 60 from a rookie for that one week. Especially since I have to trade out Kreuzer now as well, I am not wasting trades this early in the season.

      Derek · 23/03/2018 at 12:26

      i do have the E on Garlett's 61

    MRmoMAN · 23/03/2018 at 12:16

    Cheers lads, gonna stick it fat as well

    Whitey · 23/03/2018 at 12:44

    I'm considering downgrading to a Libba, Whitfield or Rockliff, keeping the cash in the bank and grabbing Danger in round 4. My worry is that Geelong will play him more forward for a couple of weeks.

    The Ranger · 23/03/2018 at 12:54

    I'm still uncertain. Very tempted to put my faith in the Son of God.

      Danger to the GOAT. Lock in a 130+. If he stinks it after 2 swap him to danger before ya lose too much $$$. Only 1 trade down. Risk it imo

    If u swapped him to Dusty last nite then I think that was a good move (I swapped back to Danger three mins before the game!) but I think we need one of them to start. It will be hard work chasing both during the season … talk about chasing the car!

    Hell no. Might not get back for round 2. 700 k riding the pine? I'll happliy wait for him to a. come back b. play two games and not re injure it.
    I'll worry about getting him back in when I come to it.
