Ladies and gentleman, we have a SuperCoach rookie bonanza on our hands. After a baron 2017 season, we are now blessed with a plethora of rookie options. It’s an embarrassment of riches for SuperCoaches at the minute, with eight young guns making their debut on the weekend. It was a low-scoring round this week, with par around the 2150 mark.

The Heroes

Melbourne’s ruck monster Max Gawn (168 SC) backed up his 151 from last week with another herculean performance. The big man had 42 hit outs and kicked two goals while also having an entertaining encounter with a Bombers supporter on the sidelines.

Fremantle midfielder Lachie Neale (151 SC) had an excellent game against West Coast yesterday, racking up 35 disposals, eight tackles and 15 contested possessions. Collingwood defender Jeremy Howe (150 SC) had a day out on Sunday with 30 possessions and 12 marks, as did Hawks running machine Isaac Smith (143 SC) on Saturday, with 24 touches at 91% DE to go with four goals.  

Midfield bulls Patrick Cripps (143 SC) and Jack McRae (141 SC) were both sublime for their sides on Friday night, with the former having 32 disposals, nine tackles, 24 contested possessions and 12 clearances and the later tallying 32 touches, seven marks, nine tackles and a goal.

Sydney ruckman Callum Sinclair (128 SC) has hit a rich patch of form and had 39 hit outs and 18 possessions at 89% DE on Saturday. Geelong opponent Joel Selwood (122 SC) was his side’s best and continues to fly under the radar with Dangerfield in the Cats side and Ablett soon to return.

West Coast pair Shannon Hurn (130 SC) and Jack Redden (128 SC) were two of the side’s best players in the derby win. West Coast’s captain had 31 possessions and 11 marks while Redden had 34 disposals and 16 contested possessions.

Other significant scores:  Justin Westoff(147 SC), Brad Ebert (139 SC), Mitch Robinson (130 SC), Ben McEvoy (129 SC), Tom T Lynch (127 SC), Lachie Whitfield (125 SC), Toby Nankervis (125 SC), Sam Gray (124 SC), Richard Dougless (124 SC), Cam Ellis-Yolmen (124 SC), Jared Polec (122 SC), Tom Phillips (120 SC), David Zaharakis (120 SC).

The Villains

The old man Kade Simpson (70 SC) was tagged by Caleb Daniel on Friday night, severely limiting his influence. With Docherty out of the Carlton side, teams are becoming more aware of Simpson’s influence off half back and may continue to attempt to shut him down in the future. Watch this space.

After a slow start to the season, Sam Menegola (70 SC) had been on fire in recent weeks. That was until Saturday. Like many of his Geelong teammates he was quiet in the side’s loss to Sydney.

Luke Parker (79 SC) continued his up and down season with another quiet game for the Swans. Despite the absence of a number of star players from the Sydney line up, Parker didn’t make much of an impact on the Geelong game.  

The Redeemers

Marcus Bontempelli (145 SC) has had an indifferent start to the season but boy did he bounce back in emphatic fashion on Friday night. The Bont ad 30 touches, seven tackles and four clearances. Fellow midfield ace Adam Treloar (148 SC) also had a match to remember on Sunday. Treloar had 37 possessions at 81% DE and appears to have cleaned up his disposal efficiency.

Sydney midfield general Josh P Kennedy (125 SC) almost singe-handily won the match for Sydney against Geelong on Saturday. The onballer had a brilliant final quarter and combined well with ruckman Callum Sinclair. He finished with 33 possessions and 13 clearances.

Years ago, Dayne Beams (130 SC) was one of the best SC midfielders in the competition. Injury has curtailed his career recently, but he appears to be getting back to his best based on what he produced for the Lions on the weekend. Speaking of reinvigorated players, Brett Deledio (111 SC) also looks to be rediscovering some of his best form. The injury-prone Giant has now smashed out three tons in a row and is making a case to be considered in top 8 forward calculations.

After a quiet two weeks, Tom Mitchell (126 SC) was back to his prolific best for the Hawks. He racked up 45 possessions and 10 clearances in a trademark display. Demon Michael Hibberd (96 SC) has been one of the most disappointing premiums so far, so it provided a small amount of solace to the coaches that still own him that he knocked out a near ton for Melbourne on Sunday.

The Prodigies

We have been blessed by an abundance of rookie options in recent weeks.

The likes of Ben Ronke (92 SC), Charlie Spargo (81 SC), Kobe Mutch (66 SC), James Worpel (64 SC), Flynn Appleby (59 SC), Oscar McInerney (53 SC), Nic Shipley (41 SC) and Jack Petruccelle (12 SC) played their first matches on the weekend, while Tom Cole (67 SC), Taylin Duman (53 SC) and Myles Poholke (18 SC) were among those to play their second matches for the season and are now on the bubble.

Tim Kelly (106 SC) continues to be a standout for rookie of the year, while Bayley Fritsch (91 SC) had his best match for the season after being dropped last week. Crows defender Tom Doedee (83 SC) was also very reliable.

Third gamers Jack Higgins (72 SC), David Mirra (71 SC) and Matt Guelfi (66 SC) were all solid, while popular defenders Jeremy Finlayson (65 SC) and Sam Murray (62 SC) were slightly down on their usual output.

Other rookie scores: Aaron Naughton (78 SC), Billy Gowers (78 SC), Esava Ratugolea (70 SC), Harry McKay (63 SC), Zac Giles-Langdon (60 SC), Jaidyn Stephenson (59 SC), Ed Richards (58 SC), Paddy Dow (59 SC), Zac Bailey (57 SC), Jack Henry (54 SC), Cameron Rayner (54 SC), Lachlan Fogarty (50 SC), Lochie O’Brien (39 SC), Dom Barry (35 SC), Nic Coffield (24 SC),

The Damned

The form of Jack Billings (47 SC) has become a serious concern. After booting 23.36 last year, Billings has returned 4.11 in six outings this season, with his wayward goal-kicking creating plenty of worries for his owners. He’s been goalless in three of those matches, and his disposal efficiency is a woeful 61.8 per cent.  Against the Hawks he had just 15 touches at 40% and booted 1.3.

Gun Brisbane midfielder Dayne Zorko (46 SC) has again proven he can’t handle a tag. He had just 10 disposals against GWS and registered another poultry score. This comes after a 37 in Round 5 and a 32 in Round 1. Teams will continue to target him so his owners must discard him ASAP. That sort of mediocrity can’t be accepted.

If you haven’t traded out Riley Bonner (53 SC) now is certainly the time to do so. He actually lost money this week and has reached his used-by date. The same can be said for young Gold Coast midfielder Nick Holman (33 SC). Despite having a low break even, his scoring has been erratic mixing scores in the 80s and 90s with a duo of returns in the 30s. His break even remains only 32, but the way he is tracking, it might be time to pull the pin early.

The perils of selecting key forwards have been on display in the form of Gold Coast spearhead Tom J Lynch (33 SC). The Suns captain smashed a monster 180 in Round 2 but hasn’t come to cracking a ton since. His owners should consider trading to a forward who will provide a more consistent output.

How did you go this weekend, community?

Does anybody have any suggestions on what to do with Billings? He’s relying too much on goals to boost his score and it just isn’t happening.

    KSinny · 30/04/2018 at 10:39

    Wondering the same thing, do we trade do we hold? Who knows

    Multi_ · 30/04/2018 at 10:54

    At 400k I’m holding him

    redherringfc · 30/04/2018 at 11:08

    I’m holding for now. He will hit some form at some point and push his price up again. I’ll consider trading him when I can get some value out of him.

    T_mitch · 30/04/2018 at 11:20

    I’m forced into a hold having held
    Greene and buddy and now will have to trade Walters, forward line in tatters

      Declan · 30/04/2018 at 13:17

      Diabolical luck with my FWDS Lance, Greene, Walters and Sicily!

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 11:42

    if it was clear who the top 8 forwards are it would be easy to move him out.

    we might all have to get back on the lambert and menagola bandwagons, but until then we just suck it up and HOLD

    Richard · 30/04/2018 at 13:12

    He should be dropped this week to VFL to regain form,his confidence is shot

    SC_Sixty_6 · 30/04/2018 at 15:00

    Unfortunately lost too much value to trade him out. Look at last season, started very slow and finished the season strongly. Very frustrating owning him, but I would continue too upgrade rookies first before trading Billings out.

    WinnerRGrinners · 01/05/2018 at 03:58

    I sold him last week, suggest you do the same. Not worth the money and only going to go down in price. Good luck.

    PJ King · 01/05/2018 at 19:24

    Holding is the best thing to do. Surely 6 weeks and no wins has got to be generating some desperation to win down at LHC. Perhaps Alan should make the boys watch some recent Carlton games, the game Brisbane almost won, and the Pies defeat of the Crows at Adelaide Oval. You know, show 'em what desperation to win looks like, and what the rewards are.

Don · 30/04/2018 at 10:59

Cripps or Macrae?

    Crowboy94 · 30/04/2018 at 11:09

    Whatever one is better for your bye rounds

      Sc_Wow · 30/04/2018 at 11:20

      Both have the same bye. Both good options

      King Larinox · 30/04/2018 at 11:21

      They have the same bye. Toss of a coin for me, I’m running with both.

      Don · 30/04/2018 at 11:25

      Both have the same bye I believe

    David C · 30/04/2018 at 13:40

    Cripps slightly cheaper. Need to get both eventually.

    theRealPod · 30/04/2018 at 14:26

    Macrae. I can't wait to bring him in.

    SC_Sixty_6 · 30/04/2018 at 15:52

    Cripps 20k cheaper

    Dan · 01/05/2018 at 00:25

    Maybe the one with lower % owners giving yourself a bit more of a POD.

Matt · 30/04/2018 at 11:05

Who is likely to be out longer, Walters or Greene?

    Holty01 · 30/04/2018 at 11:14

    Ouch. Do u have both?

    T_mitch · 30/04/2018 at 11:21

    Have Walters Greene and buddy, disarray

    Judd · 30/04/2018 at 11:56

    I have Walters, Greene and Petracca :')

      Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 18:20

      Petracca will walk straight back in this week.

    David C · 30/04/2018 at 13:41

    I'd say Walters.

SgtMarshallBB · 30/04/2018 at 11:06

Hey Community,

Unfortunately i have been faced with the problem of having Michael Walters, who went down with a grade 1 medial ligament knee injury, and has been ruled out for at least a month…. Now, i have replacements on my bench and i do not know whether to sideways him or to hold on to him for the time being, thoughts???

    Holty01 · 30/04/2018 at 11:13

    I wouldnt consider this as a sideways trade when he is going to be out for over a month. This is a corrective trade. Go your hardest with this trade.

      KSinny · 30/04/2018 at 11:18

      Yeah definitely trade if he's out for a month

    SC_Sixty_6 · 30/04/2018 at 15:11

    Potentially 4 weeks is too long to hold, especially since he could be picked up just over 400k soon after he returns

    PJ King · 01/05/2018 at 19:34

    Given the most recent news (2-3 weeks – small ligament supporting knee cap), I'm holding to preserve a trade. Also there are no clear replacements at this stage. Sure, Deledio looks good, but I don't trust that it will continue. Next week could be different, and I'll reassess on the latest news. Hold him and your precious trade for now.

Greg · 30/04/2018 at 11:12

Who is the best one to get rid of out of Holman, Dow, Brayshaw and Banfield for Neale? All have achievable breakevens but with 26 trades and close to 400k I need to make some moves!

    redherringfc · 30/04/2018 at 11:39

    I’m in a similar situation and had already decided to cull Holman, but looking at the stats Banfield might be the best to cut first.

    Banfield is consistently around 50 to 60. If he keeps this up he has made most of his money. He is projected to go up 10k this round. The others are a bit more and then more again the following weeks.

    Unless one of the others is dropped this week, Banfield’s getting the chop.

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 11:44

    cull the fattest

    David C · 30/04/2018 at 13:43

    Holman will actually be quite useful through the byes if anyone still has him at that stage.

Keenbutclueless · 30/04/2018 at 11:13

Probably the most interesting point strategically in the season. Cash out the well performed rookies and take in the new batch now, or wring every last dollar out of this lot.

You can’t chase every rookie, but there are a few of the debutants that look like they might have strong cash earning potential. I would put Spargo, Mutch and Ronke in that bucket. Potentially Worpel also. In another year we would be getting Tom Cole in now also, but the depth in rookies plus his 170k price tag has most of us dismissing him relatively quickly.

The argument for taking on this new batch now is that they will probably be nearly cherry ripe when the byes roll around.

A couple of years ago, the guy who won the overall comp went early on upgrading rookies to premium, without getting the last dollar out of each of them. Last year you needed to do the opposite. This could be another year for going early. This crop of rookies coming through reinforces that.

I think I might break the rules and go early on Ronke and Mutch this week. Probably for Murphy and Langdon. The following week Holman and one of Banfield, Murray or Finlayson for Crouch and Worpel.

That will leave me with 18 keepers and 18 trades. That’s a disturbingly low number of trades, but enough to fill the last 4 slots, and maybe upgrade Mills and Petracca if needs be. My targets will be two midfielders, one defender and one forward. Probably Yeo, Martin, Heeney. Not sure on the last midfield spot. Given my round 14 bye looks bad already, Martin and Heeney look problematic if I want to go early.

Going back to my original point. A critical week strategically I think. Will you be sitting on your hands or getting aggressive and risky?

    Sc_Wow · 30/04/2018 at 11:19

    No need for plenty of trades if you’re full premo.

    TheGreatBozza · 30/04/2018 at 11:20

    It has certainly been a different season, having an abundance of rookies this early. I made a last minute decision (2 mins before the Pies vs Tigers game) to offload Brayshaw to Higgins. I think we need to pounce on the better performing rookies for the cash gen

    JohnDJ59 · 30/04/2018 at 11:57

    I'm finding that I can plan all I like, but injures and under performing rookies, end up forcing my hand, so my team isn't really where I would like it to be, plus I have used more trades than I had planned using at this stage as well.

    INPieman · 30/04/2018 at 14:09

    I think your right about Cole Keen. Many jumped on Coffield at 170k & he just sharted out a 24. No need for expensive rookies this season. 8 debutants this week. Go cheap

redherringfc · 30/04/2018 at 11:16

Oliver is priced at $570k with a BE of 145 and Mitchell is $602k with a BE of 156.

One this week, one next week (hopefully I’ll have the $$).

Who should I get first? I’m leaning toward Mitchell.

    Sam_01 · 30/04/2018 at 11:34

    Definitely Mitchell I will be going early on Tim kelly to bring him in as it’s my last midfield spot to go!

      Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 12:11

      Although theres good reasons for going early on rookies I couldnt do that with Kelly he has scored like a premo averaging 99. Not only that hes done it vs good teams.

    SC_Sixty_6 · 30/04/2018 at 15:53

    Mitchell

HallyMate · 30/04/2018 at 11:19

2216 with Walters and Holman on field, Sicily and Petracca on the bench
My injury curse continues with Zerrett Crouch Kelly Lobb Venables Petracca and finally Walters a week after trading him in, can’t cop a break this season

    Phil · 30/04/2018 at 21:50

    Wow! You dodged Kreuzer, but that's about it..unlucky

Ben · 30/04/2018 at 11:34

If Walters is out for a month who do we bring in?

Westhoff, McLean, Mundy, Buddy – all similar price 510-20k

Gray and Menegola too pricey I think

Cheaper options.. Deledio, Taranto, Gunston… Michael Barlow??

    redherringfc · 30/04/2018 at 11:44

    The Hoff looks damn good this year. I almost grabbed him last week, but decided I wanted one final turd from Zorko. He’s definitely on my radar after his bye.

      Ben · 30/04/2018 at 11:59

      Thanks red, I'll most likely bring him in!

      SC_Sixty_6 · 30/04/2018 at 15:12

      Hoff looking very good, but I'd advise to wait a couple of weeks after Ryder comes back to see what changes happen to his scoring

    Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 12:12

    McLean or Mundy. Youd be crazy bringing in Barlow in my opinion.

    gator59 · 30/04/2018 at 12:43

    Look at Mitch Robinson

    Dominic Haley · 30/04/2018 at 14:17

    I posed this same question. As expensive as Grey is, he is the only forward (I don't have) that I'm confident will finish top 3 in the FWD line. He must come into the team at some point so worth considering. The other option I had suggested was Mclean who I am hopeful will finish top 6. He doesn't seem to be getting much attention from the opposition so hopefully this continues.

      Phil · 30/04/2018 at 21:52

      Gray top3 is underselling him I think. I'd be astonished if, barring injury, he finishes anything other than number1

    FreddoFrog · 30/04/2018 at 20:45

    Breust looks ok. ave 116 over last 3. only 495k

    fcabel · 30/04/2018 at 21:40

    I like Lids. Mundy or McLean go alright. Gotta get Gray at some point. He's still value for his output

Stirlsy · 30/04/2018 at 11:35

2163 this week with Greene and Sicily sitting the game out for one reason or another.
New rank 2027 up 330 spots should of backed Gawn in with the C but decided to take Titches 126 as VC
Greene looks like a must trade probably to McLean and not sure if ill hold Bonner for 1 more week and Holman the same or flick one this week.
Dusty is my target player but his BE is 182 so thinking hold off for another week.

Sam_01 · 30/04/2018 at 11:35

Gee treloar a bit stiff to be on the redeemers should have been heroes has gone under 100 once and has 116 average. Was doubting him as my pod selection after the first few games but boy I’ve been happy with his start

    Holty01 · 30/04/2018 at 12:15

    Wow. If you had told me he was your pod selection at the beginning of the year i would of probably said "dont be silly, plenty of better options out there". But well done. He has certainly surprised me this season.

      Sam_01 · 30/04/2018 at 17:02

      Yeah look being a pies fan sucked me into it more than anything, was only disposal efficiency holding him back, pies look like they are playing a new brand of footy and more like a team, expect treloar to have a big year!

Derek · 30/04/2018 at 12:02

anyone who has their copy of the Jock Reynolds magazine 2 will have already read the article on "How to milk the most cash out of your cows" a number of times.

But for those who don't have a copy, let me tap it out for you….

"Slaughter your cash cows at the right time.

This is as important a rookie management consideration as any other. it is also the most difficult to get right. let's have a look at how much cash the rookie class of 2016 generated each week over the course of their first 10 games of the season.

—-there is a nice graph with lots of wriggly lines—-

After 6 games our school of rookies had appreciated by an average of $145,000. By the end of their 10th game, they had added an average of only $40,000 to the total.

When you take your cash cows to slaughter is very much a case by case consideration. However, in general terms most of your rivals will hold onto their rookies for too long.

the net value of moving from appreciated rookies into point generating premiums quickly in most cases will outweigh the net value of holding onto the rookie for the purpose of an additional nominal price rise.

As with everything in this game there are some exceptions to the rule, but tending towards aggressively trading out rookies when weekly appreciation drops below $25,000 is a reasonable measure of thumb"

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 12:06

    i have already traded out Holman and TKelly (although i might want that one back).

    however my midfield looks like – Danger, Dusty, Fyfe, TMitch, Oliver, Parker, ZMerrett, Coniglio.

    Claire · 30/04/2018 at 13:31

    Very interesting and thanks Derek. According to Jock’s theory, T. Kelly is safe (Just) by point one = 25.1. I’ll keep T. Kelly but might go early on Holman to Spargo to shore up some cash.
    Does anyone else apply Jock’s theory to early trading?

      Derek · 30/04/2018 at 16:22

      it is also important to understand the ROI.

      as a $123k rookie who is making $25k a week is good return on investment.

      once the rookie has fattened up a bit to say $300k and is only making $25k a week, the ROI is much lower.

      joe · 01/05/2018 at 10:18

      its alright trading early but u need rookies playing over the byes buyer beware spargo mutch ronke will they play round 12 13 14 THINK BEFORE U POUNCE

    NoLanguage · 30/04/2018 at 19:33

    Great advice Derek! I have Walters who is my first serious injury (touch wood) so will be getting qute aggressive this week with Holman up to Zerrett and Banfield to Spargo one week early- the kid looks a ready made player. New midfield will look like this…

    Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, Conglio, Parker, Zerrett, Kelly

    Last spot will be for either Danger or Matty Crouch in a fortnight. Thoughts?

      Derek · 30/04/2018 at 21:45

      Like it. All about scoring points. Build the guts first.

zerowins · 30/04/2018 at 12:19

Should i trade finlayson and holman for danger and duman
Or holman and henry for sicily and duman

    fcabel · 30/04/2018 at 21:42

    The latter imo

Finnius · 30/04/2018 at 12:21

Stephenson to Spargo and Walters to Macrae. 190k in the bank.

    Dnny · 01/05/2018 at 16:24

    Virtual same. Baffled & Walters to Macrae & Spargo, but thinking Ronke better option than spurge

      SC_Sixty6 · 01/05/2018 at 21:18

      Ronke will be out when swans guns are back

Simo · 30/04/2018 at 12:22

Has anyone heard how bad ZGL's injury is, as in no. weeks likely to miss?
cheers

    INPieman · 30/04/2018 at 14:12

    Waiting for the same news. Held him knowing he had a role. He's on 60 just before HT & Bang…. Bugger. Got a feeling it won't be good news

      Derek · 30/04/2018 at 15:13

      had him at start, traded him out when he was injured for Ryan, then traded him back in this week. i think it might be a few weeks

        DacZawson · 30/04/2018 at 16:56

        I did the exact same thing Derek. No choice but to hold him now I think.

Neverweaken · 30/04/2018 at 12:25

How long do we think Buddy might be out for? I can do a straight swap to Westoff. Or I can trade out Walters and Banfield for Westoff and Spargo.

    Northernsoul74 · 30/04/2018 at 12:59

    Swans said today they don’t know.

    fcabel · 30/04/2018 at 21:44

    I wanna see Ryder's effect on the Hoff before considering

    FreddoFrog · 30/04/2018 at 21:56

    Buddy NOT playing this week
    "Franklin has been struggling for the past month with a bruised heel which sidelined him for the Swans' 17-point victory over Geelong …..The 31-year-old sustained the injury against West Coast in round one and has been heavily restricted at training, although he was able to get through several games."
    The club will provide a full HCF injury update on Tuesday afternoon at sydneyswans.com.au.

BingoBangoJingoJango · 30/04/2018 at 12:33

Walters and Naughton for Sicily and Oliver..Thoughts community?

    Finnius · 30/04/2018 at 13:26

    like it. Would trade murray before Naughton though.

Holty01 · 30/04/2018 at 12:35

For those thinking about bringing jpk in this week, Sydney have Nth Melbourne. He may cop the Jacobs tag

    NoLanguage · 30/04/2018 at 19:34

    Yep! Good call Holty

Isaac · 30/04/2018 at 12:37

2125 with Billings, and Danger as captain

Holty01 · 30/04/2018 at 12:52

Any news on Giles Langdon?

    Blueth · 30/04/2018 at 14:09

    an iced up knee means he aint gonna be around for a few weeks

Dominic Haley · 30/04/2018 at 12:53

Having to trade Walter this week, I've decided I'd rather not fork out for Gray as I want some spare cash for Danger in the next week or two. Thoughts on either Toby Mclean or Justin Westhoff as a POD? Who will likely average more by the end of the season?

    SC_Sixty6 · 30/04/2018 at 13:14

    McLean. Good bye and Westhoff bad bye if you don't have good cover in rd 10

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 13:15

    It’s not clear who the top forwards will be this year. Gray should be. Westoff won’t be far away, but he will give you a 30 at some stage this year. McLean keeps getting it done, had a slow start this week, 30ish at half time, might have missed boat. I would just wait for round 11 to get Gray, but if you have to trade Walters now, I’d almost bite the bullet and Pay the Price for Gray who will be a top 3 forward.

      The Ranger · 30/04/2018 at 14:01

      Surely Westhoffs scoring will be affected by the return of Ryder?
      Nice pick if you traded him in when Ryder went down but I wouldn't be bringing him in now.

        Dominic Haley · 30/04/2018 at 14:44

        Yep, I just realised that… that's enough to turn me off him

        Derek · 30/04/2018 at 15:14

        good point

    Crowboy94 · 30/04/2018 at 13:17

    McLean

    CalebCripps922 · 30/04/2018 at 14:03

    I started with Mclean and am loving his output averaging 105 and plays predominantly mid.

Neverweaken · 30/04/2018 at 12:54

Tempted to pick up Hibberd if he gives another decent score next week. Maybe he will be better with TMac back

    Disco · 30/04/2018 at 13:15

    Tom mac is playing forward. Hibberd had a few intercept marks and kicked better, hopefully finding a better role for himself. Lever coming into side has caused problems for him. Also with kick in hogs like Bernie Vince he hasn't been able to get cheap points from Kick in.

    Crowboy94 · 30/04/2018 at 13:16

    I'd give it another 2 weeks see If he can show some consistency.. I'd rather just keep Doedee Haha

    1der · 30/04/2018 at 17:12

    No Lewis this week also and Viney must be 2 -3 weeks away so Lewis may play +1 role.

    fcabel · 30/04/2018 at 21:47

    Hibbard very bad 👎

    Sc_Wow · 01/05/2018 at 08:48

    Was he taking kick ins again? Role is still different bombers were horrible he won’t get that everyweek

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 30/04/2018 at 13:29

Looks like have to change my fwd line.
Dash it. Thought it may be set for awhile but Walters may have to go.
Current fwd line:
Heeney, Gray, McLean, Walters, Smith, Tarranto. Fritsch/Henry.

Who to bring in?
Dont really like KPP, not another port player as already have gray?

Who else?
Sicily?

I could dpp with crowden putting either him or Fritsch on field and then trade walters for a mid -oliver,crouch,zerrett,mccrae etc?

Dunno. Just cant see a clear option up fwd.

    BrownlowBoy · 30/04/2018 at 13:46

    Billings!

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 30/04/2018 at 13:50

      Too funny lmao

    Davo · 30/04/2018 at 13:47

    Believe it or not I am thinking of getting Sicily in, his potential average is good so would be just gambling on whether he has learnt any lessons about behavior yet.

    BrownlowBoy · 30/04/2018 at 13:48

    Sicily is a good option although no doubt he will get rubbed out again.

    How about the Hoff or Mundy?

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 30/04/2018 at 15:01

      Mundy is the one i keep circling back to.

    neil demonsdelight · 30/04/2018 at 13:55

    similar problem with same idea .Flog looks the best choice but I may keep walters and bench him

      Northernsoul74 · 30/04/2018 at 14:13

      I reckon I’m going to try and hold Walters as well. It’s too long but don’t want to trade into more issues.

Doc · 30/04/2018 at 13:40

Greene and Banfield to Oliver and Macrae? Leaves me with $144k and looking at going Murray and Holman to Yeo and Spargo/Worpel next week.

    theRealPod · 30/04/2018 at 14:27

    Very nice Doc can't fault those trades.

neil demonsdelight · 30/04/2018 at 13:50

I heard the young fella SPARGO being interviewed He said the crowd was sick and the players were sick as well. Finally found out that sick means awesome How do you say 'CHUCK A SICKIE ' in MODERN LANGUAGE. Gator Russty or Trigg will know. W O W will for sure.LOL

SirSamuel016 · 30/04/2018 at 13:52

Thinking of making two trades this week.

Trade one is a corrective one of Walters to McLean. The next is trading a rookie to generate some cash. I'm thinking either Holman, Coffield, or Murray would generate some decent trash by offing them, although Holman and Murray good still generate some more cash. After the Walters to McLean trade I have 80K + Rookie's price to use, so any thoughts on this plan and any good downgrade targets?

    Danny · 30/04/2018 at 14:08

    I went early on Holman last week to get K Simpson (via Coffield DPP) and plan to turn Murray in to Macrae this week (via Coffield DPP).

    I'm of the opinion to go early with the cash cow kill and bring in a Premo where you can a week or two ahead of everyone else.

    Just my thoughts tho!

CalebCripps922 · 30/04/2018 at 14:01

Hello Lads I scored 2117 this week
My Team:
DEF: Laird, Simpson, Savage,Finlayson, Doedee, Murray{Mirra, Murphy}
MID: Danger, Fyfe, Titch, Cripps, Conilglio, Kelly, Holman, Coffeild {Banfeild, LDU, Barry}
RUC: Gawn, Martin {Olango}
FWD: Gray, Heeney, Mclean, Smith, Billings, Christensen {Fritsch, Crowden}

23 Trades Left 70k in bank but not sure what to do. thinking to try and go Banfeild to Spargo and Holman to Merret but just might miss out on cash. Any Help Appreciated Community!

nankthetank · 30/04/2018 at 14:03

Having started with Zorko and sticking with him so far, I'm growing far too sick of him being unable to cope with a tag and getting scores that would be disappointing even for a rookie.
The problem now is that at $430K there's a hefty fee needed to sideways trade him.
So the options:
Do I stick with him, considering we know he CAN be a very good footballer, and hope that he can work his way around a tag.
Or do I use my $160K to sideways him straight to another premo, probably the likes of Cripps.
If I don't trade, I can trade Banfield and Holman to Cripps and a rookie on the bubble.
I'd love all thoughts about this because I'm currently torn about what to do.
Thanks community

    Sc_Wow · 30/04/2018 at 14:07

    Go JPK, Zorko is done

    Jace · 30/04/2018 at 15:05

    I traded him to Zac Merret last week, so far so good

    SC_Sixty_6 · 30/04/2018 at 16:10

    If you don't have Sicily that could be a trade for Zorko. Only of the only premium's available that is at a similar price

BadgerHoney7 · 30/04/2018 at 14:10

Had a shocker 2000 this week

Team looking like: 22 trades ($40k in bank)
DEF: Laird, Sicily, Shaw, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray (Murphy, Duman)
MID: Danger, Titch, Fyfe, Dusty, Cripps, Zerrett, JOM, T Kelly (Banfield, Barry, Garlett)
RUCK: Gawn, NicNat (Olango)
FWD: Robbie Gray, Heeney, Dev Smith, Billings, Christensen, Guelfi (Fritsch, Henry)

Thinking going double downgrade next week of Garlett and Banfield onto the plethora of rookies at the moment, thinking Spargo and Mutch/Worpel whoever performs the best, than the week after Henry up to Mclean to leave me with a pretty much premo MID, RUCK, FWD other than Christensen (think we can agree that Tim Kelly is scoring premo consistently now).

During byes I will go Doedee to Yeo after his bye, Murray to Simpson. Then after byes I will go Christensen to Walters.

The Ranger · 30/04/2018 at 14:13

Jeez this game does my head in sometimes.
I'm yet to have one week where I get to do the trades I'd spent last week carefully planning!
Walters going down means I have to trade him out and I think I might break my usually strict No Flog policy and jump on the Sicily train.
Desperate times call for desperate measures…

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 16:01

    there is always something to deal with Ranger, try and have a plan, but it never seems to work out that way.

    Walters was always going to be a big risk.

    Injuries to key players always creates problems, and most of the time you don't see them coming, and as David will agree it is just bad luck. Kelly, Crouch, Sloane

    But selecting Walters after he missed alot of last year with a knee injury is not bad luck. Its the same as picking Ablett, Rocky, cyril, hanners, BCrouch, Beams, JOM or Adams, you just know you are testing your luck picking them. The game is hard enough.

    same with guys who are going to get suspended. you know who they are, but if you think the good outweighs the risk, go for it.

      The Ranger · 30/04/2018 at 16:29

      We each have to take our risk somewhere I guess Derek and one mans Walters is another mans Lycett.
      The sane part of my brain says that I'm in a hole and should probably stop digging but there's another part that insists it can see light at the end of the tunnel.

        Derek · 30/04/2018 at 18:13

        Taking a risk is what the game is all about.

        Lycett wasn’t ever a keeper, I could have (and almost did) flick him round 2. Where people were getting Walters as a season long keeper.

r_calve · 30/04/2018 at 14:25

who do i trade for wlaters, heeney, gray, westhoff, mundy or anyone else

need help please!!!!

    SgtMarshallBB · 30/04/2018 at 14:28

    well im not sure who Wlaters is, but he sounds like a bit of a bum, so i reckon give him the boot for Walters…

      DavidSA · 30/04/2018 at 14:33

      Price on Gray has just about hiked
      Mundy been super consistent still good value
      Heeney is the top Swan

SgtMarshallBB · 30/04/2018 at 14:25

Please leave me your thoughts on the following options:
1. Walters and Bonner out, for, Hurley and Spargo
or
2. Walters and Bonner out, for, Heeney and Duman
Either one i am fine with, but am doubting Duman's job security, so therefore am swaying towards option 1! And i am not afraid of going early on one of the rookies, either Spargo or Worpel.

DavidSA · 30/04/2018 at 14:28

Swing Sicily fwd Franklin and Finlayson out > Hurley and Howe in
Next week trade Doedee swing Sicily in D6 and get McLean who might drop another 5-10k

Finishes Defence Laird, Simpson, Hurley, Sicily, Howe, Shaw

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 15:38

    pretty solid defense DavidSA. Can't argue with them

Simo · 30/04/2018 at 14:36

Anyone Collingwood peeps know what Appleby's JS will be like? Unsure whether to trade Naughton to Duman this week to generate some cash.

    INPieman · 30/04/2018 at 15:33

    He was pretty good yesterday. Wouldn't like his chances when Darcy Moore is available

      Simo · 30/04/2018 at 15:48

      Thanks Pieman. Does Reid's injury help Appleby in anyway?

        INPieman · 30/04/2018 at 16:17

        Possibly. Elliott likely to take the forward role but & Moore down back

          The Ranger · 30/04/2018 at 17:34

          Langdon was just managed wasn't he?
          I'd expect him to be straight back in too.

Steeeve · 30/04/2018 at 14:46

My goal is to pick up Dusty and Matt Crouch. This will complete my midfield.
To do so will require at least one more downgrade.

Should I
A. Go early on two one gamers then upgrade to Crouch and Dusty next week?
Upside is full premo midfield sooner. Downside is cows not fully fattened and rookies may not play more games. This is the high risk high reward play.

B. Trade in one first gamer (Spargo) this week then Dusty and a bubble boy next week. Then Crouch week after that.
Upside is get one premo soon, fatten a cash cow more and ensure I get at least one rookie who will make money.
Downside is Spargo might not play 3 games and cows might not be fattened fully.
This is the medium risk play.

C. Wait this week. Double downgrade next week to two bubble boys. Then bring in Dusty and Crouch the week after.
Upside is more cow milking, guaranteed third game rookies (two of em) and cheapest possible Dusty/Crouch (probably). Downside is waiting two more weeks for a full premo midfield.
This is the low risk play but could cost me some ranking.

Anyone in a similar situation? What is the best love? I care about rank and leagues (in a cash league)…

    JohnDJ59 · 30/04/2018 at 15:31

    Go with C.

    JugHead · 30/04/2018 at 15:58

    Im in a similar position. Im kinda doing option B with a twist. I strongly believe that this time of the season, as well as slaughter the odd cow, you flush the turds out of your team.
    I don't judge players on one week, and I gave Hibberd 5 weeks to show me what he had. Thats long enough.and last round he became Cripps. This week its Petracca. Took a punt on him at the start of the season, but he is not scoring big or making cash, so out he goes.
    Strictly guns and rookies only from here on for me. The way I look at it, Petracca types will give me more cash to do a decent upgrade, while letting a cow gatten a bit more. Last week Hibberd and LDU got swapped for Cripps and Higgins. This week Petracca and a maxed out low scoring cow for another proven keeper and fresh cow. IMO, some ppl persevere too long with non performing or injured premos who burn them all season.
    We have seen it in psst seasons with Heater, Rockliff and othets. Sorry about the rant.
    So…. I suggest biting the bullet if you have a high priced non performer to supply a large wad of cash for trades. 400~500K injured players or low scorers will kill you in the byes.

      Steeeve · 30/04/2018 at 16:03

      Good call — I could consider petracca.
      Luckily I already have 400k in the kitty so one downgrade of a fat rookie (Holman) will get me enough to upgrade Brayshaw and Banfield to Dusty and Crouch. If needed I can also slaughter one other rookie to bring in two promising bubble boys.
      Ronke looked great but I'm not sure he can hold his spot long enough.

      Derek · 30/04/2018 at 18:09

      Who are your top 8 forwards?

      The question is tough.

        Steeeve · 30/04/2018 at 18:12

        Looks like you need Heeney, McLean, Robbie Gray… after that it is anybody's guess.
        That's why I am personally holding Petracca. Even if he sits around 85 that will be ample to straight swap into a Franklin type later in the year.

        Marty · 30/04/2018 at 21:29

        Long way out to call for top 8 forwards and so changeable based on injuries – my forecast would be Gray Heeney McLean, Sicily, Menegola, Deledio, Mundy and perhaps Westoff

    SC_Sixty_6 · 30/04/2018 at 16:01

    C, look for Duman this week if you want to downgrade, only viable option available.

      Steeeve · 30/04/2018 at 18:15

      Tending to agree. Just frustrating waiting an extra two rounds before I pick up Crouch and Dusty, both of whom could bang out 140s until then!

    1der · 30/04/2018 at 18:03

    The sooner you have your midfield set then you can concentrate on other areas rather than tossing up which rookie to be on the field. Take the chance on first gamers getting a game and generating cash on the side. Crouch should lose $25,000 – $35,000 next game and Martin $20,000 – $30,000.
    The only downside is with Dusty as he appears to be in second gear and switches on when needed. He has nothing to prove as he had a season that was unrivalled in 2018.

      1der · 30/04/2018 at 18:04

      Should be 2017

        Steeeve · 30/04/2018 at 18:15

        The ultra aggressive play is to bring in the rookies this week then the guns the next. Will probably cost me over $50,000 but is an extra week with the guns in the long run. If the rookies keep playing it's worth it, but seems a bit too risky for mine.

      Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 21:50

      Problem is…nothing is set in Supercoach, you can think your mids are set and then there's injuries, spud performances, etc..better off sureing up all lines gradually I reckon, and not just focusing on one.

StevoRivo · 30/04/2018 at 14:59

2145 with Ticth captain over Gawn :-(.
26 trades & $265k.
Thinking Holman & Langdon to Crouch & Duman (bubble rookie). Go now or wait a week as Crouch price will drop further and another bubble rook will appear?

    StevoRivo · 30/04/2018 at 17:21

    Should add that I don’t have Oliver or Zerrett, but feel that Crouch will score better in a stronger team.

      JohnDJ59 · 30/04/2018 at 17:31

      Wait a week or two for Crouch.

CalebCripps922 · 30/04/2018 at 15:08

Hello Lads I have 23 trades left and 70k in the bank
Should i go LDU down to Spargo this week to give me 140k and then next week go Banfeild to Worpel and Holman to Zerrett or hold the LDU trade.

Andrew · 30/04/2018 at 15:12

Stephenson to McLean or Sicily?
McLean I feel will produce a greater output but bringing in Sicily saves me 70k and will help me get Danger in the next couple weeks

    INPieman · 30/04/2018 at 15:46

    I've had Sicily & McLean since the start. I'd go McLean in a heartbeat. Sicily has had 3 tonnes 1 turd & rubbed out twice already. Good Toby has been great

    SC_Sixty_6 · 30/04/2018 at 16:09

    Sicily, much better value

Steve · 30/04/2018 at 15:37

Bonner to Seedsman or Howe?

    Steve · 30/04/2018 at 15:45

    or Lloyd? 🙂

    INPieman · 30/04/2018 at 15:47

    It's fun having Howe in your team. Had him all last season. Looks to be coming into form & he can go very big. But he does drop turds when he gets tagged

    Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:56

    Hurley, YoYo, Lloyd then Howe. In that order for me. Laird must have. Not sure on number 6. Could even be a flog.

      Defying_Madness · 30/04/2018 at 23:48

      Missed Simpson? I reckon Ryan and Sicily are decent chances for top 6 as well

    Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 22:58

    I actually like Seedsman Steve, many will disagree but he has posted the numbers, could've been premo if he had stayed fit in the past, but averaging 93 this year and still affordable and dpp.

TommyC99 · 30/04/2018 at 15:40

Can get either crouch or JPK, but can’t get both. Can get JPK now or wait another week or 2 for crouch. Which one community?

    INPieman · 30/04/2018 at 15:58

    I'd steer of JPK this week. The Swans play North & JPK has a date with Jacobs

      Derek · 30/04/2018 at 16:15

      Parker will be hiding in the forward line somewhere

    SC_Sixty_6 · 30/04/2018 at 16:00

    Can't see JPK a top 8 mid. Crouch can be

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 16:14

    Crouch is in my top 7 mids for the year. get him

Jim_bob321 · 30/04/2018 at 15:48

So pretty much I have Walters and Buddy
Thinking of trading Holman to Spargo for the DPP so I can get another midfielder….
Can get anyone, already have Bont so don't want macrae as it will ruin my bye structure
Thinking Adam Treloar… can the community help thanks

    SC_Sixty_6 · 30/04/2018 at 15:59

    Neale or Merrett are great value at the moment. Next week Oliver and Crouch would be great options. Can't recommend Treloar at almost 600k with the cheaper options available.

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 16:11

    have a quick look in the 'bargain bin' out the front.

    i see JPK in there for only $441k, Parker for $482k, Neale $523k and Zmerrett at only $506k

    all four are in the group of players just outside the top 7. all very durable as well. I think most teams might need to have one or maybe two from that group this year if you can get them at the right price.

    Jim_bob321 · 30/04/2018 at 16:24

    What about Joel Selwood..
    Don't trust Merrett nor Dons..
    And Neale won't exactly suit my bye structure

      Sc_Wow · 01/05/2018 at 08:42

      Neale and Joel have the same bye

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 30/04/2018 at 22:17

    Question mark on Treloar playing this week.

Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 16:07

Can someone give me some help with fallen premiums? I am aware of JPK, but will hold off while he cops a Jacobs tag. I have McLean, Smith and Savage.
Also looking at some rookies and premiums next week but will go early on rookies if necessary

    Petracconaldo · 30/04/2018 at 16:41

    Neale is down 75k from his starting price of 600k, Oliver is only 570k but he'll drop further potentially and Matt Crouch will be at a bargain price in the upcoming weeks

    Skindog · 30/04/2018 at 16:43

    Wouldnt call Savage a premo Tyru, or Smith, what posi are you looking at??

      Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 16:46

      Any position. Just need them this week. Hopefully two

        Marty · 30/04/2018 at 21:33

        Crouch after this week or Titch. Danger or Oliver the week after

      Jeff · 30/04/2018 at 20:32

      Which 6 defenders will outscore Savage?

      Laird, Hurley, Simpson, Yeo sure but who else? I would have thought a top 6 position player would class as a premium

        Marty · 30/04/2018 at 21:36

        Laird Hurley Simpson Sicily Hurn Yeo

    TommyC99 · 30/04/2018 at 17:22

    Matt crouch will be juicy in a week or 2

    Steeeve · 30/04/2018 at 18:16

    Merrett is still a bargain.
    If you have plums you could try Parker.
    If you have HUGE plums you could try Zorko.

      Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 18:22

      Got Zerrett last week and he is king!
      I’ll think of Parker but I’ll have to adjust my structures
      Only got rid of Zorko two weeks ago. Good riddance

TOPHAWK1 · 30/04/2018 at 16:09

Traded in Oliver (for Brayshaw) and Mirra last week.My next target is Toby McLean. I could trade out Holman and go early on Spargo and then trade out Christensen for McLean. I don't have Buddy, and Walters. No injuries up front. I am leaning to hold my trades this week. I can sit back and have another look at those rookies before they go on the bubble and let McLean play one more round with a current BE of 122. Next week I will have clarity on the rooks, and McLean will hopefully be similarly priced or even cheaper. Holman has a BE of 35 so no urgency there. Christensen BE of 87 and might leak a bit of cash. Do I sit tight or get aggressive and pull the trade lever this week? Cheers community.

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 16:32

    it doesn't look like you will gain any coin holding, but you might miss some points.

      TOPHAWK1 · 30/04/2018 at 16:37

      Perhaps just bite the bullet and push forward and get Spargo early and McLean. Just get it over and done with. Thanks Derek.

Jono · 30/04/2018 at 16:19

    FreddoFrog · 30/04/2018 at 20:54

    Get Cripps and Macrae but don't trade TKelly or any of your defenders to do it.

      Jono · 01/05/2018 at 15:23

      I did a trade yesterday, thoughts on Walters to Devon Smith!! Then next week I will possibly do Holman and Banfield to Worpel and Spargo respectively.

Da Boysh · 30/04/2018 at 16:29

Hi community!

Ranked 411th overall pretty happy but I am stuck,
24 trades 120k in the bank. I am in real trouble around my byes as we all ar I think – round 13 is going to hurt. I need to decide whether I start pulling the trigger on these cash cows or hold a bit longer – I want to get Danger/Macrae/Mclean all in ASAP given the dogs have the nice bye round and Danger will bottom out soonish. I am worried about these new rookies I missed Mirra and Higgins and I am worried it may have been the big mistake of my season.. any advice is appreciated.

DEF: Laird, Hurley, Shaw, Doedee, Murray, Naughton (Richards, Murphy)

MID: Titch,Fyfe, Dusty, Coniglio, Cripps, Merrett, Kelly, Finlayson (Holman, Coffield, Banfield)

RUC: Gawn, Nank (Lavender)

FWD: Gray, Heeney, Sicaflog, Petracca, Smith, Fritsch (ZGL, Guelfi)

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 18:05

    Start the cull. The fatest ones first

    Mirra and Higgins both have some JS issues, time will tell. Can’t have them all

      Da Boysh · 30/04/2018 at 18:45

      What about these rookies who have not played their second game.. too risky? i didnt watch them play

        Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 19:16

        Spargo had a d/e of around 90,and kicked a few goals, Ronke looked good too but could go straight out when Buddy gets back.

        joe · 01/05/2018 at 10:37

        HOPE U LIKE THIS MOVE HOLMAN INTO SPARGO AND PETRACCA INTO MIDS AND SWAP 4 MACRAE

          Da Boysh · 01/05/2018 at 14:20

          Thanks Joe, definitely considering it

    Valens_FC · 01/05/2018 at 13:33

    Congrats on the great start to the season and you're in an excellent position with only 6 trades used.

    Probably a small window of opportunity missed in the week just gone, but I don't think it will be season defining for you…. you're ranked 411 after all! This week a better one for upgrades than downgrades. Next week good for downgrades with Spargo, Worpel and Ronke at this stage all looking good options. Going early always a risk but might be worth doing in your case this week so you can paint the fence and do one upgrade this week.

    Think a cull of Finlayson (or Murray via DPP) and Holman this week for say Spargo plus one of your upgrade targets could be a good play. You won't need that level of cover in midfield especially with Kelly holding down M8. Holman has tough fixtures now and definitely needs to go.

      Da Boysh · 01/05/2018 at 14:19

      Great feedback thanks!
      I think I will go Murray and Holman to either Macrae/Yeo and Spargo then double downgrade next week. I’ve been fortunate enough to avoid injuries so might as well press the advantage!

        Valens_FC · 01/05/2018 at 16:58

        Sounds like a good plan – your team will be in much better shape than most. Only 5 on field rookies after these moves and barring injury that should be down to 3 within two weeks. Once you've done that, you'll be closing in on the $50k!

          Da Boysh · 01/05/2018 at 19:32

          Thanks mate!
          I cannot get Macrae if I move Holman on.. I need to get rid of Banfield otherwise I am 2k short 🙁

Petracconaldo · 30/04/2018 at 16:38

I have a slight dilemma:
Holman and Banfield have potentially peaked and im looking to trade them up, however i was one of the unlucky souls that picked Billings this year. Should my focus be on upgrading my rookies to a mid that I rate highly in Pat Cripps or should i get rid of Billings?

Midfield:
Fyfe, Martin, Mitchell, Macrae, Oliver, Kelly, Holman, Banfield (Barry, Brayshaw, Fogarty)
Forward:
Heeney, McLean, Smith, Billings, Stephenson, Higgins (Fritch, Guelfi)

    Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 16:48

    Holman still has a BE of 35. He averages 34 as a pressure forward and much more as a tagger. Hold and downgrade next week. And yes Billings is ought to go

      Petracconaldo · 30/04/2018 at 17:12

      I think im going to have to hold Billings, i feel that the best trade this week is bringing in Crippsy and though it may come back to bite me, holding Billings until the byes may allow me to maximize my options. I dont feel comfortable using so many trades (i have 23 right now), is that a decent number of trades this season? I havent had to 'waste' any trades this year, they've strictly either been downgrades or replacing injured players

        Petracconaldo · 30/04/2018 at 17:22

        Wait no, i have to get rid of him…Who would you suggest to bring in to the Fwd line for Billings?

          JohnDJ59 · 30/04/2018 at 17:30

          Gray

          Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 22:56

          I like Mclean or Taranto if you don't already own em…both doing pretty well.

    Skindog · 30/04/2018 at 16:52

    I'm getting rid of Spudings, no more of that crap, if you've got cash, upgrade him Naldo, theres a couple there, a couple of risk vs reward kinda guys also if you have the stones.

      Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:49

      Ill throw one out there…….Dixon may do better with Ryder back soon. Although id wait till their bye is over now for any port player.

Simo · 30/04/2018 at 16:51

I have enough $$ to turn Holman into Zach Merrett or Lachie Neale. Who do you suggest out of these 2?

    Skindog · 30/04/2018 at 16:56

    Neale all the way Simo

      Sam_01 · 30/04/2018 at 17:06

      Can’t remember where Essendon have their bye but there’s a lot of big names out in freos bye round. Both will
      Average the same, id base it off your structures

        Derek · 30/04/2018 at 18:01

        Merrett much better bye

Steve · 30/04/2018 at 16:55

Hey community

With 516K who do I bring in for Walters?

I already have Mclean Heeney and unfortunately Billings

Im tossing up between either Sicily, Acres or Devon Smith?

Let me know your thoughts community!

    Simo · 30/04/2018 at 16:58

    Taranto = Jet

      Sam_01 · 30/04/2018 at 17:09

      Interesting there on the Timmy Taranto call, he has been producing well recently. I’m in the same boat strapped for cash I’ve put Mundy in but it’s forced me to downgrade Murray to the freo rookie which I didn’t want to do. May take Taranto into consideration would love to hear everyone’s thoughts on him

    Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:47

    Devon Smith I stand by my pick of starting with him, doesnt have the risk of role change (Taranto) or Tooth length (Barlow).

    Could consider Wallis or Boak for a POD.

Ryan · 30/04/2018 at 16:57

Is mitch Robinson worth trading to in the forward line for Walters or Billings?

He is averaging 102 with 1 scores below 90?

    Sam_01 · 30/04/2018 at 17:18

    He might get a week for an off the ball incident may have to look elsewhere

      Petracconaldo · 30/04/2018 at 17:33

      Pull the trigger

      Sc_Wow · 30/04/2018 at 17:36

      Wasn’t that Roberton

        Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 18:25

        Nah Robertson, Roberton has the heart issue…and Robinson will probably get suspended next week..lol

      Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:45

      This is my only problem with him as a pick. Wallis and Boak better picks.

    Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 18:27

    Trading billings for robinson is the definition of sideways (if not backwards). very suspect pick. Better options out there!

      Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 22:54

      I wouldn't say that…Robinson so far, is having his best year yet, and billings is having one of his worst.

    Danners · 30/04/2018 at 22:50

    Did notice this, with the lack of standout forwards, looks to be a solid POD

Sellars1226 · 30/04/2018 at 17:11

Kent and Brayshaw for Caddy and Spargo? Other option was to go Zac Fisher and Spargo but I’m leaning towards Caddy

    Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 18:44

    Certain PODs, but personally wouldnt touch kent or caddy mate, surely you have some other options up your sleeve? Trust your gut

Skindog · 30/04/2018 at 17:19

Caddy's too up and down, its a no from me lol

    Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:44

    Id take Wallis or boak personally.

simon · 30/04/2018 at 17:22

Finlayson and Banfield out
titch and spargo in

thoughts?

    Sam_01 · 30/04/2018 at 17:51

    Worth waiting another week on it, Finlayson and Banfield should go up a touch more and mitchel with a break even of 156will drop 17.5k if he scores a 120

    Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 18:32

    You have to hold Finlayson!!!
    Titch will still decrease in price and you shouldn’t go early on rookies

    Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:44

    Nah, could be losing cash whilst gaining a donut.

Sam_01 · 30/04/2018 at 17:44

Anyone watch the freo game or go for freo
What’s T.Dumans job security like worth bringing him in? Need to start culling rookies for the upcoming trade ins namely titch next week!
Also Deledio or Taranto what’s everyone’s thoughts on them, Walters injured has caused me a headache. May have to downgrade Murray doeedee or Finlayson to Duman to get rid of Walters I’m strapped for cash! Currently thinking Murray to go and bring in Mundy for Walters

    Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 18:31

    Can’t answer your first bit

    I’m not keen on Deledio but Taranto is a great young prospect. Will continue scoring 90+ average until Scully returns.

    If you are to trade a defender rookie, don’t trade those three. Seek value in your trades. Surely you have a better rookie to cull.

    Try Kennedy, Parker or hold a week for Gibbs, Simmo or someone else

      Sam_01 · 30/04/2018 at 18:46

      Sitting ranked 1500 team as follows!
      Back: laird, yeo, finnlayson, murray, doedee, mirra (Murphy, o”keefe)
      Mid: danger, dusty, Fyfe, treloar, cripps, Oliver, cogs, tkelly (Barry, Holman, Banfield)
      Ruck: Gawn nicnat (olango)
      Fwd: heeny, McLean, Walters, Sicily, smith, fristch (ZGL, Crowden) only 14k in the bank. Last mid has to be titch don’t think I can look for a value player. Assuming everyone hits their projections —> Banfield/holman down gets me about 160k Tim kelly rises to 392k mitchel comes down to about 585k so I’m gonna need Atleast 30k in the bank for next week assuming all goes to plan to trade kelly up. Thus I gotta either downgrade Walters or either chop non playing Murphy on bench or the 3 of my backline rookies. More safety in culling Murray I feel

        Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 20:21

        Hate to break It to you, but your midfield is full. You’re better off getting in a defender like Howe, Savage or Simpson who can help you get 40 points extra a week, rather than 20

          Sam_01 · 30/04/2018 at 21:16

          That is true but Mitchell won’t be this cheap ever again so I gotta go him, will be paying top dollar for all backline players at the moment bar savage plus Mitchell gives a reliable captaincy option

TJ. · 30/04/2018 at 17:46

what rookie is good under 113k???

    Sam_01 · 30/04/2018 at 17:49

    Nope, not this week Atleast

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 17:58

    Wilson from the Crows is $106k. Has been emergency a few times and might get a game very soon. Otherwise nothing

    Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 18:28

    Players close to a game are Wilson and Heron

      TJ. · 30/04/2018 at 20:33

      just need a good premo thoughts

ROB14 · 30/04/2018 at 17:46

Anyone keeping Walters?

    Sam_01 · 30/04/2018 at 17:47

    Gone for a month maybe more gotta trade

Crowboy94 · 30/04/2018 at 18:02

Hey Guys!

What do people think of my team that I hopefully go into round 7 with:

Laird, Simpson, McGovern, Sicily, Murray, Doedee ( Naughton, Murphy)

Dangerfield, Mitchell, Fyfe, Merrett, MaCrae, Finlayson, Kelly, Spargo ( Holman, Brayshaw, Barry)

Gawn, Nank ( Cameron)

Heeney, Mundy, McLean, Billings, Fritsch, Higgins ( Henry, Guelfi)

22 trades and 220k in bank

Thanks!

    Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 18:26

    It’s… Good!

    I’m just not keen on jumping onto rookies before they are on the bubble

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/04/2018 at 19:47

    Hi Crowboy.

    I hate to say this, but I have some concerns about your team. You have spent 8 trades and yet you are still 3 away from being full premo in your midfield, and 2 away from being full premo up forward. Your ruck and backline are solid.

    I have used 7 trades so far and am 1 away from being full premo in the midfield, and 1 away in my forward line. I have the same ruck combo as you, and have 2 less premos in my backline. The backline is where the strongest rookies are generating the cash.

    I guess you have had to use trades for injuries, but as I see it, you need to get that midfield and forward line up to speed, and fast.

    Just my take mate. Cheers.

      Crowboy94 · 30/04/2018 at 20:17

      Would you rather me trade in someone like Cripps?

        TOPHAWK1 · 30/04/2018 at 20:44

        If you reversed your trades, then you would be back to 24 trades yeah?

        If so, start again and have a look at Cripps, or Clayton Oliver. Don't fluff around with "long in the tooth" guys like David Mundy up forward. (If he is the guy you traded in)

        You desperately need more grunt in the midfield.

          Crowboy94 · 30/04/2018 at 21:35

          Yep I would be back to 24

    Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 19:56

    Hi Crowboy, who did you trade out this week mate..and why is Billings still there?

      Crowboy94 · 30/04/2018 at 20:11

      Traded Stephenson to Mundy, traded Banfield out swung Finlayson into the mids and swung Sicily back. Cant afford to trade billings, have already done 2 correction trades this year…

    TJ. · 30/04/2018 at 20:37

    cripps??

JugHead · 30/04/2018 at 18:08

Jelwood as a POD anyone? 533k at the moment and hasnt averaged below 100 since 2008. With Gaz as a part timer and Danger obviously carrying injuries, I see him as the main man at the cats this year.

    Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 18:24

    He’s coming in for Walters this week

    Tibor · 30/04/2018 at 18:51

    Good point Jug Head. Certainly worth considering instead of blokes like Oliver Cripps or Merrett. All good players but Joel not likely to let you down. The umps are basically handing you thirty to forty points a week before Joel actually has to do anything. 533 is unders in my opinion

      SC_Sixty6 · 30/04/2018 at 19:52

      I reckon Cripps and Oliver will avg more than selwood.

        Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 20:22

        But they cost 40-50k more. Only will average 5 points more, or around that

        neil demonsdelight · 30/04/2018 at 20:32

        Boils down to JELLWOOD vs ZERRETT for me I will take Jellwood and Crouch

        Tibor · 01/05/2018 at 10:13

        Agreed but the cheaper price may suit some. Personally I want both Oliver and Cripps to complete my on field premo midfield. Holman going out this week and will upgrade to one of the above. The last rookie to move on will be tim Kelly so no huge urgency there. The question is who is the priority Cripps or Oliver.

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 21:42

    Scott said on AFL360 tonight that Selwood has been playing injured

    Also said that Danger started season under-done and has struggled to finish games

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 30/04/2018 at 22:46

      He did say Selwood was playing inj but is now over the inj, which is great news. Still scored 122 last week.

Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 18:10

Garlett –> spargo
Banfield —> sicily
Or
Billings —> mclean
Banfield/garlett —> spargo

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks community!

    Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 18:24

    I’m not so keen on Spargo. Give him a week to prove himself. If you need him in then option A

    And lay off Ross. 🙁

      Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 18:32

      Not normally one to go early just really like the kid, and with the potential options (worpel,ronke) next week just think i need to get 1 this week. Cheers for the feedback though 🙂

TommyC99 · 30/04/2018 at 18:11

Who’s a better get this week. Simmo, Cripps or Macrae? Would like at least one of Cripps or Macrae before the byes.

    James · 30/04/2018 at 18:19

    Cripps

    Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 18:21

    Definitely crippa!

    Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:38

    Corn boy.

Saundo · 30/04/2018 at 18:17

Does anyone know Dusty’s BE?

    Sam_01 · 30/04/2018 at 18:20

    182 can check via footywire and sc gold. I think a mate was telling me he could see the break evens without sc gold by just looking at the full player profile

      Saundo · 30/04/2018 at 18:22

      Copy cheers

    neil demonsdelight · 30/04/2018 at 18:54

    165 on serious

JugHead · 30/04/2018 at 18:27

Cripps for me. People forget the injuries he had to deal with last year, and he scored pretty well despite it when he played.
If he keeps getting a clear run at it, I'm tipping him to join the Danger/Dusty/Titch elite by the end of the year.

    Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 18:33

    Could be above danger the way hes going at the moment, definitely carrying some sort of injury. Cripps is a star!

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 19:28

    Because he is so good in a poor team, surely he will get plenty of attention.

      SC_Sixty6 · 30/04/2018 at 19:49

      That's just it, he won't get attention because they are so bad. Let him get a tonne…..who cares the blues still won't win.

        Captain Risky · 30/04/2018 at 19:54

        I bet Zorko's wishing they'd leave him alone for the same reason….

          SC_Sixty6 · 30/04/2018 at 19:59

          Yeh sorry I should have elaborated for you further. Cripps is 194cm and 94kg. They can't stop him…..compared to the midget.

      FreddoFrog · 30/04/2018 at 21:01

      Jacobs tagged him pretty hard but cripps still managed 92, he got 92 with the Pendle tag as well.
      Cripps has heaps of upside, as the debut mids improve so will Cripps SC points then murphy coming back will also help Crpps' SC points.
      I can't see any reason to not have him other than being supercoach suicidal

        Derek · 30/04/2018 at 21:40

        Yeah, he is good. But I wouldn’t say he will be in the elite group nor that it is SC Suicide. I’ve told you a billion times not to exaggerate.

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/04/2018 at 20:51

    Cripps. Get on him. Turning into a monster. Yep, he plays for Carlton, but he will flick taggers to the curb.

Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 18:33

What’s the fuss on Spargo? I know he has a good history, but there has never been this much hype for a rookie who scored 70 in his only afl game during a 6 goal win

    Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 18:38

    DPP, really strong first half (when melbourne were struggling), great TAC cup average, and multiple rookies on the bubble next week

    Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 18:39

    Not sure who he came in for, but not sure about his job security, he scored 81 actually, I'd have another look before pulling the trigger.

      neil demonsdelight · 30/04/2018 at 19:02

      Hi Russty I reckon his J S will be good Not too many of that type at the dees/ BUGG GARLETT about all I am bringing him in. We only play StKilda mate and the Colac under 10's might have a chance of beating them

        Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 19:05

        Hiya Neil, so you think he'll stay in instead of Garlett? Spargo did look a good player with a good D/E, about 90%?
        When are you getting T-MAC in mate?

          neil demonsdelight · 30/04/2018 at 20:27

          Think I might opt for SICILY Russty .Better for byes Bye the way congrats GAT but when you look at it YOUR GAWN choice got you home. and I changed with 10 mins left for TICH .Thought LEWY might get GAWN silly silly thoughts well done GATOR Cu in the finals you too RUSSTY

            Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 20:33

            I did the same sillyness Neil, had the C on Gawn and changed it to Dustbag Martin..and had Hogan too…hence my pox score this week.

        gator59 · 30/04/2018 at 19:40

        Steady up there Neil.. Colac u10's would beat them atm… Geez even the Barramunga rubbish tip juniors 2nd's would even beat them

          Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 19:49

          I reckon the Blind, Quadraplegic, in need of a kidney transplant 22 would beat the Saints right now Gator 🙂
          How was Membrey on the weekend?…bloody shameful.

    neil demonsdelight · 30/04/2018 at 20:17

    BT gave them a bake on talking footy mainly Ben Dixon and the recruiting dept. as GATOR said.

      Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 20:38

      Ben Dixon ..who's been training Membrey how to kick goals?…yeah good job Ben.

    Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:37

    Im not buying into it personally until he is on the bubble and named for a third match. We've seen time and time again that gojng early isnt worth it.

dontblushbaby · 30/04/2018 at 18:33

Does anyone have any info on Danger ? even Jimmy Bartel was concerned on radio this morning !

I'm was wanting to go Holman to Danger this week but might go Cripps instead who I believe will be Top 10 Mid TY anyway

    Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 18:39

    Carrying something. Wouldnt be surprised to see him rested if gaz is back this week. Watch this space!

    Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:34

    Yeah pull the trigger on Cripps the dude is a beast as we all know, this season could be huge.

Tibor · 30/04/2018 at 18:45

I have Holman and have decided it's time for him to go. I have Toby Greene and unfortunately it's time for him to go too because I'm not holding him for an unknown time frame. This will allow a Holman to Oliver upgrade but who to get in the fwd line. Maybe a week late for Higgins and Guelfi. Not sure on the other options galucci and Lapinski seem a bit pricey and not sure I want to mess with the Zurhaar. Any thoughts

    Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 19:14

    Could go a week early on Spargo, Neil DD reckons his JS is ok.

      Tibor · 30/04/2018 at 19:26

      Maybe so. I settled on Guelfi even though I'm a week late but you've got me re thinking that. Not sure NDD is looking to assist me this week though. Also this has me bringing in two demons to join those I already have, Max, Tracca, Fritsch and Hogan.

        Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 19:31

        Good for round 14 mate.

          neil demonsdelight · 30/04/2018 at 20:13

          Balic is close too Russty. More of a high forward like Hannan and Fritsch so wont affect Spargo . Kicked 6 goals in resies 2 weeks back and tearing it up /

Josh · 30/04/2018 at 18:54

Grundy and Petracca both in doubt to play this round, according to channel 7 news.

    Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 19:12

    Sam Landsberger from Herald Sun seems to think Petracca will "slot straight back in against StKilda"….can't see him letting a bit of a sore finger keeping him out, he just needs to double up on the bandaids.

      Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 19:18

      The news said he had second lot of surgery and is still in hospital, surely hes more likely to miss. Not sure bandaids are the fix

        Derek · 30/04/2018 at 19:22

        it did sound pretty nasty

        Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 19:23

        Ah crap!…thanks Ross, must've been more infected than they thought…that'll change my plans.

          Tibor · 30/04/2018 at 19:31

          He should talk to Jordan De Goey his dog has been beautifully behaved this year.

            Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 19:46

            Lol, if only his infected finger was imaginary!

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 19:24

    I was watching game and thought Grundy was gone just after half time, but he kept playing. Wouldn’t surprise if he missed, looked sore

      gator59 · 30/04/2018 at 19:42

      Shin soreness apparently

        Derek · 30/04/2018 at 21:35

        Is that all. He’ll play

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/04/2018 at 20:28

    Grundy's output dropped dramatically in the second half, whilst Nankervis became dominant. That speaks volumes. Something is up with Grundy IMO. Not saying he will miss this week, but watch closely. As far as Petracca is concerned, he still has 6 days before his next match. He would have had a nice rest, probably lost a bit of weight, (might help him) , and his finger surely would have settled. Like Russty said, he just needs bandages and he will be out there.

      Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 21:48

      Hey Hawk, I'm not so sure mate, I've had infected fingers before and they are super painful, you can't touch anything without wincing in pain.

        neil demonsdelight · 30/04/2018 at 22:17

        mate JIMMY STYNES would be rolling around with laughter ( RIP MY FRIEND) —— a sore finger -come on

          Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 22:40

          Don't get me wrong mate, I hope he plays!…but it can be super painful for sure, could make him drop the Footy, or not even go for it, regardless, if he's not right, he shouldn't play.

Defying_Madness · 30/04/2018 at 18:54

Hey community,

Looking for some advice with my team after my pretty shocking start to the year. Been killed with injuries this year with players such as Lobb, Kelly, Kreuzer, Merret, Langdon, Ryan, Venables, Merret tanking my score each week. Burnt 2 trades on Bonner as well after advising everyone not to pick him which leaves me with a measly 22 trades. I am not proud to admit it but I am ranked around 16k currently.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel with 328k currently sitting in the bank so I am ready to make some upgrades. Looking to possibly target Crouch and Danger over the coming weeks as well.

Here is my team, looking for any advice

Laird, Ryan, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, Mirra (Keefe, Murphy)

Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Oliver, Coniglio, Zerret, Kelly, Holman (Brayshaw, Banfield, Barry)

Gawn, Nic Nat (Olango)

Heeney, McLean, Smith, Sicily, Billings, Fritsch (Henry, Guelfi)

Cheers everyone

    Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 18:59

    Hey DM, rough start with the injuries mate but 16k ain't terrible…I'd consider going Billings to Taranto and Murray to a premo this week.

    INPieman · 30/04/2018 at 19:14

    Anyone that doesn't own Danger needs to see his team mate as the answer. You target Kelly to Danger. Kelly still on the rise & easiest rookie to get to him. That means you don't need to sacrifice a premo to get him. Danger still at a BE he hasn't achieved. I'd bite the bullet & move Billings to Gray with your war chest. At least Gray is a certain top Fwd. Billings is far from that. And if this was my team you have no cover in defence. I'd move Sicily to the back line & turn Keefe into a rookie on the bubble when possible

      neil demonsdelight · 30/04/2018 at 20:04

      Pretty solid advice PIES. The only thing I disagree with you is moving FLOG to def. I would definitely keep Keefe as a loop especially when culling starts and having Flog ready to back up is great

        INPieman · 30/04/2018 at 20:18

        Personal opinion Neil. A dead rookie scoring nothing is worth nothing. And GWS is not a great loop team. For instance they play first game this week & you cant loop. They also play in the 2nd game of the following 2 weeks. So it's just a suggestion with strategy behind it. But each to their own

          Defying_Madness · 30/04/2018 at 20:21

          Aren't my forward rookies the cover for defence? If one of them gets dropped or injured I can swing Sicily down back and field one of my forward rookies. I guess it gets tricky if Sicily misses in the week one of my defenders misses as well.

      Defying_Madness · 30/04/2018 at 20:18

      I like moving Billings to Gray but then it stops me from upgrading Holman or Murray. I guess I could go Murray to Howe and Billings to Gray just a bit unsure if Howe is top 6. I still need to probably get in Simpson, Yeo and Hurley

        Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 20:26

        Shaky trade for Gray. Role found easily change with Rockliff inclusion and Wingard’s presence if he recovers quicker than expected. Try another top 8 mid, like Mundy or McLean

        I like Howe though

    Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 20:24

    Billings has to go. The issue is that there are a lack of forward premiums with value. Smith, McLean and Mundy highlight at the moment. And consider removing a Freo mid rookie too

      Defying_Madness · 30/04/2018 at 20:39

      Could go Billings to Mundy and Murray to Yeo. I actually kind of like that

        Defying_Madness · 30/04/2018 at 21:47

        Yeo and Simpson could work as well, would require moving Keefe into the forward line

    Marty · 30/04/2018 at 21:57

    DM great job getting that rank with so many injuries. I'd hold and upgrade Holman to Crouch leaves 100k left. Then i would trade Banfield whose BE is higher than Brayshaw (who will go up 30k) down to Spargo giving you 273k in the warchest to turn Kelly into Danger a week later.

      Marty · 30/04/2018 at 21:57

      upgrade next week was supposed to type

Dan · 30/04/2018 at 19:49

Duman, Spargo or Worpedo this week community?

    dontblushbaby · 30/04/2018 at 20:31

    Duman, as he's played 2 games and on the bubble with a BE of minus 65 ,Spargs n Worps only played 1 games

    However I see a lot a who have gone early on Spargs, prpbs as a downgrade with the carnage in the FWD's lately

      Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:11

      Very small forward, alarm bells ringing for me not convinced.

SC_Sixty6 · 30/04/2018 at 19:57

WARNING!!!!

Sicily! He is the epitomi of white line fever. 2/6 games he's been banned and the leniency of the AFL and umpires will wear thin WHEN he continues to do stupid crap on the field.

His avg may look good but think about when he misses what your cover will be and how many points you'll be missing out on without a reliable player.

    Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 19:59

    He's ok now, has been spending time under the BrainwasherDome 3000 this week and will behave from now on 🙂

    zerowins · 30/04/2018 at 20:10

    Are you suggesting we look at someone else. Im keen on getting him thid week

      Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 20:27

      Be prepared for him to miss a few games from now. I have cover atm so it doesn’t matter but most people dont

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 21:32

    It isn’t just the chance of being suspended, as a hawks fan I’ve seen what happens when the opposition give him some attention. If a team makes him accountable one-on-one, he loses the chance to make intercepting marks. Opposition coaches know this.

    Other teams also know, if you get under Sicily’s skin he will play bad.

    These things will happen

FearTheBeard · 30/04/2018 at 19:59

Question lads.

Heeney or Taranto in? I did some homework and Heeney has clearly outscored heavily due to the one sticker Taranto has chucked up of 49 when Heeney scored 122 that round. Other then that there isn't much between them any week either 10-3 points and thats sometimes in Taranto's fav.

Any GWS fan able to say how much this is effected with Kelly back eventually?

I am looking at it as the fact its 120k I could save to upgrade to Danger next week….

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 21:27

    I’m not a GWS fan, but it seems to me Taranto will be seriously affected when Kelly comes back. Hopper is a mid only and we saw when Hopper played his first game of the year how much it affected Taranto, but the just as luck you have it, Kelly goes out and Taranto’s scoring returns.

    To make it worse for Taranto is Delidio’s form, so he can’t go back to the half-forward linking role because Lids and Dibs on that now.

    Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:09

    Too risky, and the stepping stone ship named profit left port some time ago.

    Danners · 30/04/2018 at 22:47

    Wouldn't want to take a risk on a breakout player like Taranto. Heeney looks to be a top 5 forward this year

      Same team as above troll

    Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 20:25

    Hey there Mek/ Gaz, how's J.Kelly been going for ya?..have you done a trade yet?
    I think Zorko and Billings need to go.

pasta stRayner · 30/04/2018 at 20:25

Seeking serious advice this week community… I downgraded Greene last week and banked some coin, over his scoring capacity and injury worries. $720k kitty in warchest, you read that right. $720k. What to do?! Aiming for Dusty, Danger,

DEF:
Laird, Savage, Tuohy, Doeedee, Murray, Naughton, (Mirra, Richards)

MID:
Fyfe, Mitchell, Oliver, Whitfield, Parker, O'Meara, Kelly, Finlayson (Banfield, Holman, Barry)

RUCK:
Gawn, Goldy (Cameron)

(Mclean, Smith, Billings, Sicily, Fritsch, Guelfi (ZGL, Keefe)

SO I'm thinking just trading out Billings to Mundy, reasonably priced and I see him as a good POD top 6 defender. (Gray and Heeney are too expensive atm but will come in due time) and then trading out Richards (Holman as a lower BE and higher scoring capacity) for Cripps,.. although I am tempted with Jack Macrae or even the bottomed out Merret?
What's the best trades to do this week??

    Whitey · 30/04/2018 at 20:58

    Keep in mind Crouch in a couple of weeks for the midfield.

    Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 21:17

    I think you'll find mundy is actually a forward 😉
    Like your thinking though mate, macrae overpriced but is scoring really well. Merrett is still very good value!

Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 20:28

First trade finalized!

Walters —> Jelwood.

Now what to do with Bonner.

    Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 20:30

    How much coin you got to play with Ty?

      Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 20:33

      Can upgrade boner to a player of 495k

        Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 20:37

        You have a lot of choices them mate, I won't suggest who cause there are plenty of options. I was happy to get rid of fool's gold bonner this week too.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 30/04/2018 at 20:32

    Maybe downgrade to Duman or Cole? How much cash do you have?

      Derek · 30/04/2018 at 21:11

      What price is Cole?

        Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 21:31

        $170,000, might not make much coin.

    Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 20:52

    Maybe (meathead) sicily, if you dont already have him. Not too many good options under 500k…

Blake · 30/04/2018 at 20:36

who are the best premiums to get in

I have fyfe TMich Dusty Cripps coniglio and Zerett

    Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 20:55

    Danger in a couple weeks, once hes bottomed out

    Whitey · 30/04/2018 at 20:56

    Danger and Crouch

      Blakeyboi · 30/04/2018 at 22:03

      ok cool

    Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:05

    Danger and Oliver.

Whisper · 30/04/2018 at 20:40

How longs Kelly gone for

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 21:08

    I’d be surprised if he didn’t play this week. I haven’t heard anything to say he won’t. Maybe Sixty6 has info?

      DacZawson · 30/04/2018 at 21:30

      If this is Josh Kelly, I've heard some say that they don't expect him back for a few more weeks as GWS are in no rush given they are still playing well, main concern is just getting his body right. Be nice if GWS themselves released some info though.

      SC_Sixty6 · 30/04/2018 at 21:33

      Yeh haven't heard anything now mate. What is it now? 3 weeks ago I said he may have OP.

      Looks to be the case and won't be rushed in.

    Wow great defence mate!

Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 20:53

Does billings have to go?? Can anyone see him turning it around??

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 21:06

    i Can see him turning it around.

    He did the same last year, in fact his average after 6 games last year was worse than it is this year.

    Saints have had a pretty tough run of matches. Crows, Cats, GWS & Hawks. He scores well against the easier teams, 137 against Lions.

    If you were to trade him out, who to? Heeney, Gray, McLean and Menagola are all too expensive and can get cheaper around the byes, Buddy, Greene and Walters are injured, no/one else is obvious top 8 forward.

      Defying_Madness · 30/04/2018 at 21:16

      The problem is if you keep him sure you save some cash on other premos as they drop in price but you have to consider the points lost as well. Can't accept a premo scoring 50-60 odd, on top of this if he keeps scoring like this he will drop in price as well making the money saved from waiting on Gray/ Menagola pointless. It really is a tough choice, would only recommend keeping him if you think he will finish top 8 on average from here on out.

        Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 21:29

        Cheers madness, real good advice. Think i might trade him, have already given him enough time

      Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 21:23

      Thanks derek! Yeah im really undecided, its a shame saints dont have any small forwards because he scores quite well on the wing. Was leaning towards sicily, but mclean also quite tempting.
      If i knew sic could pull his head in would be a no brainer….

        Marty · 30/04/2018 at 22:06

        It's the satisfaction of finally he's gone! Lol at the name.

Tyruddanaut · 30/04/2018 at 20:58

Temporary second trade

Bonner —> Spargo.

Don’t like going early on rookies but Spargo has a been hyped up so much and is the most traded in for the week. Also don’t have enough money for the premiums I want

    Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:02

    Remember the hype surrounding Bonner? Hype should almost be a sign to do the opposite lol

    Dont go early not worth breaking sc rules.

Tommo · 30/04/2018 at 21:02

Scored 1998 last weekend 😭😞😭😞

Def: Simpson Laird Hurley Doedee Murray Naughton (Mirra O’Connor)
Mid: Danger Dusty Fyfe Bont O’Meara Kelly Finlayson Holman (Dow Brayshaw Clark)
Ruc: Gawn NicNat (Cameron)
Fwd: Buddy Heeney Petracca Lynch Christensen Guelfi (Fritsch Henry)

25 trades and $379k left

Thinking Holman and Murray to Duman and a ultrapremo but am struggling about who to pick up. Mitchell will still go down in price and I don’t see many other options that I like

Thoughts??

    Marty · 30/04/2018 at 22:21

    My thoughts are it is time to move on JOM,BE of 125. O'Meara to Cripps gives you $254k still. Going Murray to Duman would make your warchest $458 to get Crouch or Titch next week and have some spare still 180ish k

      Tommo · 30/04/2018 at 22:46

      I like it a lot
      Sounds good and this makes my midfield a lot stronger

FreddoFrog · 30/04/2018 at 21:11

I hate saying "I told you so"
so, instead I ask these questions of some who started with the most expensive SC player in round 1 even though they knew that he was injured and would miss the first game AND that his role would be different due to team additions when he did come back.
Do you still think that your strategy was an advanced strategy that 'novices' can't comprehend, or do you concede that you have pretty much destroyed any chances of winning the main prize?
Can you remind me of how much more expensive you believe Danger will be after his bye?

    Jeff · 30/04/2018 at 21:18

    I mean I started with danger just cause I didn't want to spend a trade later, not knowing how much I would have to fork out for it. I only play for leagues which don't start till round 3 so I didn't miss out on anything. Plus danger was almost a POD by the start of the season, which was a bonus

    DacZawson · 30/04/2018 at 21:25

    You just said it.
    No point bragging about previous rounds, the only useful posts are stuff about the rounds we can affect.

      Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 21:45

      Yeah , no one likes an 'I told you so'..because their wisdom is always from hindsight, I don't regret starting him, scored 2300 and 2400 first 2 rounds, think he'll be the one crying in his beer when Danger starts knocking out 150+ again and he can't afford him.

        Derek · 30/04/2018 at 22:22

        Just ignore posts like that

    Ahmad rubas · 30/04/2018 at 21:36

    I play for leagues so if he is fit for round 3 he was in my starting team and I don't want to spend a trade bringing in such an expensive good luck bringing him in if he goes 150+ against the giants. That being said it was the wrong decision but I have no regrets starting him

    Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 21:56

    You sound like you are having a good year freddo? Im sure you must be the person ranked number 1?

    SC_Sixty6 · 30/04/2018 at 22:24

    What's your rank buddy? I know my mate wow is #86 and he had danger on the pine rd 1.

    So your post is nothing but a pointless grab at attention when it clearly isn't a 'i told you so' when there are I almost guarantee thousands started danger yet sit higher in rank than you. Jog on.

    Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:27

    I didnt start with Danger but I reckon we need to save 150k to make it worthwhile, not to mention the huge risk of missing mammoth scores. Still debateable whether ut was worth not having him from round one.

    Sc_Wow · 01/05/2018 at 08:41

    Most likely going to be in everyone’s 8, saved a trade and he’s still scored ok. I would of liked more but with him in the team it’s allowed me to pick off other fallen premos and my team is looking solid. Currently sitting at 86 overall 270 odd points behind the leader so I’d say there is hope for those that started with him 👍🏼

    Your post could have stopped after the seventh word and it would have contributed just as much.
    He copped a second injury from what Scott was saying – if he hadn't, odds are good he would have not seen the price drop he did.
    Congratulations on this ball bouncing your way.

    Out of curiosity, did you have to make any injury trades? Are all your premos top of their position? If not, shut up.

    joe · 01/05/2018 at 10:48

    UR KIDDING I HAVE HAD DANGER R1 CURRENTLY 190TH

NoLanguage · 30/04/2018 at 21:29

Hey community, would love a word of advice on the team going into R7!

B – Laird, Savage, Hibberd, Doedee, Murray, MIrra (Naughton, Richards)
M – Fyfe, Mitchell, Dusty, Cripps, Coniglio, Parker, Kelly, Finlayson (Banfield, Holman, Barry)
R – Gawn, Martin (Cameron)
F – Heeney, Walters, Smith, Sicily, Christensen, Fritsch (Guelfi, Henry)

25 trades & $233k in the bank

Ranked 2500 and hit my first bit of carnage this week with Walters going down. Some options??

1) Walters to Gray and Holman down to Spargo
2) Walters to McLean and Holman down to Spargo
3) Hold Walters and go Holman up to Merrett and Banfield down to Spargo

Any thoughts or general feedback would be appreciated as always 🙂

DacZawson · 30/04/2018 at 21:37

For a defensive downgrade, what are people's thoughts regarding the best choice out of Duman (123k), Mirra (165k) or Cole (170k)?

    Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 21:43

    Out of those 3 youd have to take duman. Make sure hes named this week though because i have some doubts on his JS.

Marty · 30/04/2018 at 21:48

Risk v reward time.

Out JOM and Billings in Cripps and Lids (yes i know I should have started with Cripps (palm to face hard).
A few weeks ago I said no to Lids because of his past injuries and that Josh Kelly will be in shortly BUT

1. I thought the same with Seedsman when Crouch came back and all that happened was there was an extra rotation through the middle
2. Lids looks damn fit and average 115 three years ago
3. Lids BE is 17 and will go up about 42k and in a few weeks expected price of 528 much better than Billings 380k. If Lids is injured all it takes is a sideways trade with $$$.

Happy to take the told you so's in weeks to come but i need to make a move. No guts no glory.

    Neverweaken · 30/04/2018 at 22:09

    Were my thoughts last week when I bought him in to cover Sicily/Buddy/Petracca. And then lost Walters so happy for lids to stay in my forward line

    TheResurrection · 02/05/2018 at 13:27

    afl.com.au news “GREATER Western Sydney's injury woes have worsened with Jeremy Cameron and Brett Deledio ruled out of Friday's night clash with Geelong at GMHBA Stadium.

    Cameron (toe) and Deledio (hamstring) join club champion Josh Kelly (groin), Toby Greene (foot) and Rory Lobb (knee) on the sidelines.”

Neverweaken · 30/04/2018 at 22:07

As an owner of Buddy, Petracca and Walters, its all getting to hard. Who to trade in, McLean, Westoff, Taranto? So stuff it. Double downgrade this week. Walters to Ronke and Banfield to Spargo. Gives me 500k to go crazy with next week. Where i probably say good bye to Holman and JOM

    Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:24

    Both one gamers? Nah.

      Neverweaken · 30/04/2018 at 22:29

      I know. But I missed Mirra because I had to get Guelfi and another forward (Lids) last week.

    Ross 'sexpest' lyon · 30/04/2018 at 22:24

    Taking 1 rookie early is a risk, but 2 is just madness!!!

Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 22:21

With all the big scores of Deledio and now Hoff going around, I feel like its taking the attention of real POD forwards of Wallis and Boak who seem really consistent, and not currently inflated in price. Thoughts?

    Neverweaken · 30/04/2018 at 22:31

    Consistent 95-100. will take that every week. Better that Petracca rubbish. But not Boak before the bye. Maybe Wallis next week. Thanks

      Whatyasmokin · 30/04/2018 at 23:01

      Yeah I think Boak's upside would be a low injury history over Wallis.

      Key position players not looking great these days, and these two also represent good value currently.

      b_sh3p · 01/05/2018 at 16:20

      Didn't know Wallis was a fwd. Worth a thought for sure! I've never liked Boak so wouldn't get him personally.

    Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 23:03

    I just feel like both those guys aren't really proven Smokin and are still too inconsistent., not saying you're wrong, just that I wouldn't pick em.

    TommyC99 · 30/04/2018 at 23:03

    Wallis has a lot of mids to contend with, which worries me slightly.

Andy · 30/04/2018 at 22:35

Thoughts on bringing in R Gray even with the inflated price?

    Danners · 30/04/2018 at 22:46

    Wait till after the bye, maybe look into Mundy instead, save a bit of coin

TommyC99 · 30/04/2018 at 23:02

Thoughts on Holman and Banfield to a rookie and Cripps? Cripps’ bye is invaluable and want to pick him up as well as simmo before the byes.

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 23:15

    Real good trade. Which rookie?

      TommyC99 · 30/04/2018 at 23:27

      Yeah options are scarce Derek. I can either go early on Spargo/Ronke type or go to Dumin and switch findlayson into the guts.

MRmoMAN · 30/04/2018 at 23:04

With already using 8 trades, and 7 players out of full premo including billings who is not playing like one at the moment, should i be holding walters for the 4 weeks? going for league wins only, however have cash on the line in a competitive league

    Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 23:06

    Nah, get rid of him, it was only a matter of time anyway..get a good points scorer in there. Try to hold off from trading for a few weeks somewhere down the track.

    Derek · 30/04/2018 at 23:14

    Gotta go

Rocksta · 30/04/2018 at 23:07

To Sicily or not to Sicily?
Flog or not, he’s a gun footballer.
He’s still affordable at $448K, and I reckon he’s too good to pass up at that Price.
Thoughts?

    MRmoMAN · 30/04/2018 at 23:11

    fkn get him! might as well i recon

    Russty_ · 30/04/2018 at 23:11

    Yeh why not?…what's life without a good risk thrown in the mix?…he reckons he's learned his lesson..he might've.
    We know he can score the points we need.

      neil demonsdelight · 01/05/2018 at 11:19

      The trouble is all clubs will bait him Having said that he is value even though he will miss games for being a flog. DPP helps particularly with Keefe. Better forwards and defenders with less trouble but a good bye Tough call

    Swans2012 · 01/05/2018 at 12:09

    I'm jumping on the Flog train, best value this week across any line and selectable on 2

      joe · 01/05/2018 at 13:33

      gone from flog stomper to common rack up the points and please don't get reported

    NoLanguage · 01/05/2018 at 22:04

    Get the man in!

Rocksta · 30/04/2018 at 23:20

Cheers Lads. I turned Banfield into Spargo and Murray into Sicily, which still leaves me with enough coin to paint the fence again next week.
I could have turned these same trades into Spargo and Zerrett, but didn’t have Finlayson in the mids for the mid/def swing. I only put him back in defence last week. Just goes to show you need to plan your trades a couple of weeks in advance to insure they will work.

WinnerRGrinners · 01/05/2018 at 04:03

Hello All.
Thinking of trading j.Kelly to either MACREA or TRELOAR. What are your thoughts?????

Also Bonner to Sicily ??? Is that a good idea??? will be left with no cash.

What you reckon?

    seen_burns · 01/05/2018 at 07:31

    No point trading Kelly now held him for 3 weeks so might as well keep him, he might play this week.

David C · 01/05/2018 at 07:37

Grundy unlikely next week by the looks. Going to cause chaos in the rucks for some.

    Daniel Z · 01/05/2018 at 10:40

    Why? Source?

      David C · 01/05/2018 at 11:23

      AFL website.

    JugHead · 01/05/2018 at 11:23

    Could be an interesting week selection wise. An ex player was quoted last week (can't remember who) as saying that the second game of a short turnaround (the sunday games just finished) isn't as tough as people think. Its the next round afterwards (this week) where a player feels the pinch.

Brett · 01/05/2018 at 08:31

Hi community, I have SC Gold and I am trying to look ahead to the bye rounds to see how I’m looking. How do I do that?
Cheers

    Mick · 01/05/2018 at 10:59

    Go to team, top right corner there is a tab which says show byes, select the round and it will fade out the players not playing that round.

      Brett · 01/05/2018 at 13:06

      Cheers

    Beezneez · 01/05/2018 at 11:09

    If you're referring to how your team stacks up in the bye rounds you press the tag "show byes" next to the projections tag top right on team page.

      Beezneez · 01/05/2018 at 11:12

      Ps need to press Tools button first.

        Brett · 01/05/2018 at 13:08

        Does this apply when using a mobile device or need to be done on a PC? It doesn’t show on the iPad and mobile I am using.

          Beezneez · 01/05/2018 at 13:46

          Shows on my smartphone. Green Tools tab on rh side of team's page.

Dave · 01/05/2018 at 09:27

what rookies are good under 200k?

    Dale · 01/05/2018 at 13:41

    Worpel mirra Higgins cole spargo guelfi ZGL (if gets fit)

Blakeyboi · 01/05/2018 at 09:29

cripps or r gray??

Tibor · 01/05/2018 at 10:17

Will get both Cripps and Oliver to complete on field midfield to full premo. Getting one this week for Holman and Tim Kelly will go eventually for the other so no urgency there could even wait until Geelong Bye. Who should I be looking to get first Oliver or Cripps

    b_sh3p · 01/05/2018 at 16:24

    My question is… How will Murphy back affect Cripps? I had Oliver from day 1 and brought in Cripps this week so I would say Oliver on longer consistency

JugHead · 01/05/2018 at 11:51

Aside from the price difference, who is the better rookie to get this week. Duman or Cole?

    Dice_real · 01/05/2018 at 13:04

    I like the look of Cole's stats Jug

      David C · 01/05/2018 at 14:31

      Good bye as well.

    Valens_FC · 01/05/2018 at 13:26

    Reckon price difference pretty significant….. of the high priced rookies, maybe only Stephenson you could call a success. Rayner, Brayshaw, Naughton, Coffield, Dow have not worked out. With the low price rookies even a 50av they still make you $100k+ in a relatively short space of time.

anthdepa · 01/05/2018 at 11:59

I currently have 497,000 with 25 trades,

DEF (Laird, Savage, Naughton, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray) – Coffield, Mirra

MID ( Mitchell, Martin, Fyfe, J.Kelly, Parker, Coniglio, T.Kelly, Holman) – Banfield, Barry, Brayshaw

RUCK (GAWN, NANK) – Cameron

FWD (Heeney, Franklin, McLean, Smith, Fritsch, Guelfi) – Henry, Giles-Langdon

Trades I could do –
Out – Naughton and Banfield for Hurn and Macrae
Out – Naughton and Nank for Grundy and (Simpson or Hurn)

    Dale · 01/05/2018 at 13:36

    Hurn and macrae I like

    Crowboy94 · 01/05/2018 at 14:28

    1: dont trade Nank, waste of a trade…
    2: why trade naughton when he has such a low BE..

    JAZZA · 01/05/2018 at 21:10

    I Like the trade get Naughton out i would go for Hurn i real POD there and i would get rid of Nank to his time is done very good trades i currently ranked 879 and thats pretty good but i think you will have a better team then me if u do those trades

prizza · 01/05/2018 at 13:04

Been one of those years, merret,zorko,sissy,buddy,wally,crouch,ryan,vegstables,hibbert, train wreck

Dale · 01/05/2018 at 13:49

I’m moving on bonner. I have 612k.
I can get anyone I like but really chasing good value to keep a kitty aside for Cripps/macrae next week.. so Thinking maybe seeds or do I play it safe with a Hurley/Simpson?
Other option is swing Sicily back and jump on Deledio? 470k only worry is his track record stayin fit …. Timmy Taranto still tempts me at 440k too.

HELP please

HarryO · 01/05/2018 at 13:54

Finlayson Murray banfield & Holman all flattened up nicely and off to market in the next fortnight. Hardest decision is do you upgrade or downgrade them… anyone got advice or a method they use for this

    Derek · 01/05/2018 at 14:02

    Paint the fence. 1 up, 1 down. Welcome.

      HarryO · 01/05/2018 at 14:10

      Thanks Derek

Danny Boy · 01/05/2018 at 16:47

OK guys. Cannot split these two and want to bring one in this week for Banfield going off to market.
MACRAE or CRIPPS for M7
Same bye. Same numbers. Price marginal, barely a factor. Can they both be top 10?
My mid Danger, Fyfe, Dusty, Titch, Coniglio, Parker, ?????, T.Kelly.
Might be 2 or 3 weeks before i fill M8
lets see ya votes

    Danny Boy · 01/05/2018 at 18:38

    very disappointing that i can't get not one response. Is there a 'clic' one must be in?

    theRealPod · 01/05/2018 at 18:51

    Danny I would pick Macrae.

    Most ppl on different thread, the podcast. Might need to clear your browser cache to see it, cheers.

      Danny Boy · 01/05/2018 at 21:04

      thanks mate. Appreciate the advice

    NoLanguage · 01/05/2018 at 18:56

    Cripps mate. Tbh you can't really go wrong but Cripps is a contested animal

    Tibor · 01/05/2018 at 19:14

    When it's this close a call, and I'd throw Oliver in there too if you don't have him, I'd usually say take the bloke who plays in the better team. I'm a demon so I've got a bias toward Oliver but I just see Cripps as a complete superstar. Nothing seems to curb his output, no ruckman and Murphy in or out etc. if he gets tagged he just goes to the fwd line and dominates, just an absolute gun.. in time will be the best player in the comp

      JugHead · 01/05/2018 at 19:42

      agree

        Danny Boy · 01/05/2018 at 21:06

        thanks everyone

Blakeyboi · 01/05/2018 at 17:14

Petracca ($439,400) – Spargo ($117,300)
Holman ($263,500) – Treloar ($591,200)

0.7k left

thoughts?

    Derek · 01/05/2018 at 17:41

    Paying nearly $600k for Treloar. Seems a bit overs

    Dan · 01/05/2018 at 19:07

    I'd wait another week and bring in mitchell at a discount

      blakeyboi · 02/05/2018 at 11:20

      i have him

    Tibor · 01/05/2018 at 19:18

    Better options than Treloar and quite a few of them. In fact I'd save the trade and show a bit of patience with Tracca. Just go Holman to Spargo. Treloar is classic burn man

Dan · 01/05/2018 at 18:25

Thoughts on who to bring in for Walters for my f4 position?? Got enough to upgrade to gray but was thinking of picking him up once his price comes down a bit, which it will. Thinking Sicily

    Tibor · 01/05/2018 at 19:24

    Please don't put the words thinking and Sicily together ever again

Sammy_14 · 01/05/2018 at 18:41

Sicily or Deledio?

    Tibor · 01/05/2018 at 19:23

    Deledio. In fact if your question was Sicily or Jack Silvagni take SOSOS. We can all be guilty of including too much flog factor. Some of us have Toby Greene, others even have Riewoldt or Goddard, the forgotten flog. Sicily however is a flog too far. Take him at your own peril and don't cry later.

      Blueth · 02/05/2018 at 11:30

      hamstring to lids

Big V · 01/05/2018 at 19:37

Hello Community.
Tim Kelly has been a bloody beauty but all Rookies have their time.
How much longer do we keep him before we complete our Midfield with Premiums…

Tim · 01/05/2018 at 20:08

Have performed the following:

Murray + Finlayson (both in DEF): OUT
Sicily swing to DEF
Coffield swing to DEF
Cripps + Worpel: IN

$46.3K left over. Poised to get Crouch on the cheap through Holman and T.Kelly next week. Should leave me with enough cash to do a simple straight upgrade of Doedee the following week.

Michael · 01/05/2018 at 21:24

Hi guys. Upgrading Holman this week. Macrae or Treloar? Both similarly priced, similar output of late, and neither is a cause for concern in regards to bye rounds. Cheers!

Ando · 01/05/2018 at 23:36
