PODCAST: THE BARGAIN BASEMENT BIN BONANZA

Published by Patch on

It’s BARGAIN time, community.

Forget Boxing Day, forget closing down sales, forget that time Foxtel tried to make EOFYS a thing (Gretchen, stop trying to make EOFYS happen, it’s never going to happen), this week is where all the bargains you need to care about are.

Lekdog and Patch spend a whole 40 minutes scratching round the bargain bin of Supercoach this week, and we also poke around in the backline to find true love – well, actually it’s just a defensive premium option but that’s basically the same thing, right? Right?

We also have a chat to Hedge from Fantasy Insider who gives us an insight into all things daily fantasy and how Fantasy Insider works – including talking about a whole bunch of their free features.

While we don’t cover rookies this week – here’s the quick 4-1-1 folks, or at least as I see it.

Down back, Naughton has to go with a donut in his rolling average. Finlayson is next on the chopping block, while Murray and Doedee are surviving this week in Patch’s Potatoes.

There are no rookies really on the bubble worth bringing in – Keefe probably the top of that list, but as we’ve said in weeks past, going early on a rookie can spell absolute disaster. We’re looking at you, Ed Phillips.

Also – if you’ve missed the boat on Ronke, you’ve missed the boat. Don’t swim after the boat. As Crouching would say, man who run behind car get exhausted. Man who swim behind boat get wet and cold and left behind in the wet and cold water.

For everything else you could possibly need this week – it’s in the podcast. Chuck the headphones on and give it a listen, folks.

Hey everyone!
Any suggestions on what to do this week?

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

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

Gawn, Nank

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

20 trades and 119k

Whatyasmokin

Could go Doedee to Ryan in defence? If you see him in your premo squad of course. Id put him above Hibberd as potential top defender. Hurley and Howe having injury concerns is a real spanner in the works.

Jake Lloyd worth a look. Tmac a bit of a maybe.

Finnius

Howe has an injury concern????? Pls no. I have no defensive cover this week.

r_calve

naughton to keefe
billings to menegola

SamuraiPizzaCat

Naughton to Keeffe
Doedee to Yeo

Crowboy94

That's what I was thinking Samurai

Davo

That's the best move, start beefing up the backline.

BVB21

Best move for sure

james thomas

get rid of naughton

throttlefinger

A big ol' yankee grin across my bloated, tired ass face. Thanks for the shout out, gents!

The Ranger

How's ya season TF?
Not seen you posting this year.

INPieman

He's ranked 300th. Career best

The Ranger

Thanks Pieman,
And congrats to you TF, keep it up mate.

Lekdog

You bloody gun mate! Getting off Twitter seems to be the answer

Ken

Is hogan the real deal?

Whatyasmokin

I started with him at 380k for me he's the real deal πŸ˜‰

Low BE right now so get him in if you have faith.

Mike

No

Yeahnahyeah

I didnt think so but now am warming to him… might be one of my last upgrades

Petracconaldo

Yes, has an average of 106 this year if you take out the stinker he had against the Dons

Monty

Should I swap billings to Rockliff after ports bye? I can't wait to get rid of billings

Whatyasmokin

Worth a shot, if you can spare another trade later if rocky gets injured, which is probably 50/50, no exaggeration.

Derek

Billing’s needs Saints to win to score well.

Can you see any wins coming?

Collingwood, Richmond, WCE, Swans and Suns before their bye.

Shake_n_Bake

Will push the Pies this week Derek. Got that feeling it will be close.

DANGER1VDUSTY2

Lekdog/Patch how about (you're special saying – he's good at football!) a new category titled – He Sucks Footballs!
Billings and Petracca top the list.

Whatyasmokin

Yeah but come on who would start with them? Petracca a slight possibility sure….but jeez Billings was overpriced bigtime! (Braces for impact of tomatoes being thrown by the community…..)

Derek

There was just no-one else at the start. Gray not playing, Menagola overpriced, buddy get cheaper, Greene injury concern, JJK injured…

DavidSA

There was no love for Mundy either no one here talking him up before the season.

Derek

I had Barlow in my preseason team!

Didn’t pick McLean because I didn’t even know what he looked like

Lekdog

I love/hate this

ronkeydonkey

Ronke is a likely F1 with that mammoth average. Tim Kelly or David Mundy 2.0 with a ceiling of '17 Dangerfield going forward.

Lekdog

Spot on here

Adam

I need a Mid rookie for Finlayson???
Anyone please

StevoRivo

Phillips & Ainsworth, comes with the 1 game risk though.
Otherwise Worpell (if he plays), Ballard or Scheer.

Adam

Think I’m leaning towards Ainsworth

Yeahnahyeah

Phillips easy

Lekdog

Phillips if I had to pick someone

chicken

phillips

BadgerHoney7

Phillips is nice, probably will not get dropped either, had the most touches for the Saints on the weekend in his first game.

Rippo

no he didn't

Corey

Tim Kelly to Dayne Zorko?

r_calve

kelly will grow another 50k or so an dis scoring better than Zorko, Zorko will also gett tagged by howe next week so hold off tll you can be sure

Hchachenko

Thoughts on cunnington and m crouch community? Really want Oliver but he’s a bit too exy and it means I can’t upgrade Naughton to anyone decent in the back line. The extra 60 odd grand would be handy.

Yeahnahyeah

Wouldn't touch cunnington personally, if you wanted a north pod id go higgins. then again, can you see them both ranking in the top 10-15 mids end of year?

Hchachenko

Thanks mate, ended up swinging it and got the bont and Jake Lloyd for doedee and Petracca (yep, had Petracca in the fwd line, moved him to the mid to trade him out) still dunno if it’s the right decision. Pressed the reverse button 300 times today FML.

r_calve

Cunnington would get huge scores but his efficiency is horrible so I would suggest maybe picking up dusty next week cos he will be sub 500k

r_calve

what forward or defender should i trade in, can do either, i have 530k and i have Heeney, McGovern, Sicily, McLean, laird, Simpson and d smith

thoughts please?!?!?!?!

Sc_Wow

Think guest appearances from community members could be a good idea. Perhaps those that are traveling well, see what they’ve done to achieve it.

Narcissist

i.e. you.

Sc_Wow

I guess I could be one.
There are many high performing community memebers this year and the boys asked for suggestions. Would be good to get input from members

BVB21

I think it’s a great idea.

The guys do a great job at the entertainment aspect but would a few of us see this as work rather than fun.

Would like some advanced concepts discussed

Russty_

I reckon it'd be great if this site was registered Intense Debate accounts only, I know it's been said before but these name changing every 2 seconds trolls really are just the lowest form of life….probably lying on their couches eating crap all day and would have to be removed from their house with a Crane.

Sc_Wow

I agree Russty

Cpt

Define criteria for doing well?

Eg: Top 1%, +24 Trades,

prizza

Hang on to those trades,, you aint got many left , had all the luck, and luck is 80% sc especially when 90% have the same squad of 40 from the begining .
If you are inside 500 after round 16 you have the right to discount luck.
Btw all the very best, but leave the trumpet behind for a bit.

Sc_Wow

Had my fair share to deal with
Greene, Kruse, Zerrett, Hibberd, Hurley
But my teams got through it with smart selections and replacements
Eg starting with McLean, bringing in Gray early, Ditching Zerrett for oliver.
Sick of hearing about all this luck

BVB21

Me too.

You make your own luck.

I play poker for a living and all the bad players always complain about their luck.

SuperCoach is basically maths + strategy

Sc_Wow

Yep I think a lot of people struggle with the math. Or looking at it critically.

JOHN DWYER

Great analogy. Id say its the same discussion. You can play sc well and not have it fall your way at times but luck is only one aspect of the game.

Matt English

Finlayson>Sicily
Doedee>Keefe
Leaves me with 50k and 19 trades and 5 off full premo, what does everyone think??

NoLanguage

Doing similar trades mate, Doedee to Yeo and Naughton to Keefe. Leaving me with 19 trades and 5 off not counting Hibberd. I think you're in a good spot, as long as we have about 10 for injuries post byes!

BVB21

Good trades but hard without full team to see if it’s the best trades

Help!!!!!

Laird, Slicy, Yeo, Mirra, Appleby, Duman (Buckley, Murphy)

Oliver, Mitchell, Macrae, Fyfe, Cripps, Conigilo, Spargo, Mutch ( o' Connor, brown, Barry)

Gawn, Grundy, ( olango)

Heeney, Smith, Henry, Ronke, Zac Giles Langdon, Guelfi (Ahern, Keeffe)

28 trades and 76k need help

Andrew

You’ve only used 2 trades so far?!?!

sc tragic

If you have 28 trades the world is your oyster.

Shake_n_Bake

I think ur telling porkys! Why would you why have Mirra Appleby Duman Spargo Mutch Ronke Guelfi & Keefe ? none of these players were named rd1.

DavidSA

probably started r6
Only 13 premiums in a guns rookies is the give away. Needs to upgrade 9 rookies "πŸ˜‚ That won't be finished all season long.

Shake_n_Bake

Thats what l was thinking came in rd 6.

PReard@x

Worth getting Ballard (if named) and keep Holman to play through the byes potentially?

DavidC

I'll be holding Holman unless he is dropped. Not sure of Ballard's JS.

INPieman

Nick Holdman

Yeahnahyeah

No idea why people would trade Holman now. Will be very useful through the byes and can score decently. One big score and could jump another 50k

prizza

ballard looked comfortable i thought, sc relevant? not sure but may be a 150 gamer i rekon

sc tragic

After saying thanks for nothing to Naughton, I have 3 back rookies to unload but I'm not really enamoured with any of the new blood at the moment, maybe Keeffe has to come in but !!!! . I also need to off load Holman/Banfield in the mids, don't like bringing in 1 gamers tho. Decisions,decisions.

Simo036

How much cash in the bank? why not upgrade instead of downgrading?

sc tragic

70K thinking down & up have Sicily on back line with Laird, Ryan, then Dooda, Murray Naughton Bonner Henry.

The Ranger

It's that time of year eh tragic? I always think that this little period before the byes when your first round of rookies are reaching the end of their lifespan is the trickiest time. It can make or break your season.
Do you cull early and get a bank for the byes? If so what do you downgrade them to?
Do you hold them and hope they can either hold or increase in value?
Do you take a punt on a Zorko/Rockliff type that might come good or hold for the premo you really want?
Do you take the premo that fits your bye structure or grab the one that doesn't but will score better?
Lots to think about this week.

NEIL demons delight

Absolutely sums me up Ranger.Going early on PHILLIPS and opting for McDonald over YEO so plenty happening driving me nuts cheers NDD

The Ranger

I think I'm gonna take Yeo this week to help my bye structure Neil so I'm looking to paint the fence but I started with Keefe so the rookie cupboard is pretty bare for me.
Great score last week, you whupped me in the Magnificent 7.

Finnius

Thoughts on English -> Crossley?

HarryH

I'm doing it, particularly considering Crossley is bye coverage. My only concern is Peter Wright coming back. Does that affect his JS?

INPieman

Don't mind it. If Crossley plays through the byes that would be ideal

Finnius

that was the plan.

Steeeve

I really wanted English to keep playing and use him as a swinging bench option. Any chance he gets back in the team?

Lekdog

For cash it's not terrible, hurts flexibility for bye coverage though.

Finnius

I mean not if Crossley keeps his spot though. Or do you mean DPP?

BlueBalls

Laird, Simpson, Sicily, Ryan, Doedee, Murray, (Mirra, Murphy)

Mitchell, MaCrae, Fyfe, Cripps, Neale, Coniglio, Kelly ( Holman, Spargo, Barry)

Gawn, Naitanui

Heeney, McLean, Walters, Smith, Petracchole, Fritsch, (Henry, Guelfi)

Petracchole and Doedee on the chopping block this week. Should I go

Oliver and def rookie or Yeo and mid rookie (Early on Phillips?)

Oliver is better for bye structure but leaves me light down back.

Yeo helps my back line and gives me more options rookie-wise but I'll have to pay more for Oliver who's price will increase more than Yeo's this week (most likely).

Does anyone have advice?

BlueBalls

Also, I'm aware that it's Macrae and not MaCrae. I copy/pasted a team and edited that because I'm a lazy man.

DavidSA

i thought it was ahh McCain you've done it again

JohnDJ59

I would prefer Oliver over Yeo. You only named seven of your eight on field mids by the way, I assume you will be swinging Spargo and Tracca to get Oliver, my only worry is not sure what def rookies are coming through, so like you said it is probably easier to do the Yeo trade.

BlueBalls

Ah crap! I have Hogan where Walters is and Walters in the midfield at the moment.

So I'll be swinging Walters and Tracca. Quite the head scratcher…

INPieman

The Curnow family can car pool to the tribunal tonight

Lekdog

Mum drove them I hear

Russty_

Hope eddy gets off too!

SC_Sixty6

Great podcast guys. Can hear the growing confidence oozing out of you two!

As said in the podcast the JR community is really good at SC…..(this year anyway). Is it by coincidence that a couple of consistent top 100 finishers have helped with some advice….oh I mean 'opinions' for community members SC teams?

Veteran and beginner opinions are hard to decipher. Looks like most people have filtered through the nonsense and found the gold!

prizza

bullshit ,, you wont finish inside 5000 and i will bet on it

Russty_

I bet..he'll take that bet..I'll bet you he'll finish in the top 500 at least.

DavidSA

agree with that my margin line on on him will be 750 $1.10
He is trading with aggression which is always better than sitting on rooks for an extra 20k that may never happen or takes 3 or more rounds

Russty_

True dat Dave, gotta pull in the reins sometime soon though, or best laid plans can all go to crap if one is too aggressive.
Lots of unexpected events still to come..as always.

Mystic_Mac

What are Buddy owners doing with him?

DavidSA

i think he will miss a 5th possibly a 6th game so reckon getting Hogan would be the best swap for pts and cash
Will make 75k for the swap

Holty01

He will be my final upgrade so the longer he is out the better for me.
Honestly dont think Sydney will play him unless he is 100%. With Sydney sitting in the top 8 there is no real need to rush him back. Ill attempt to get him just after his bye

Dry

Holding Buddy, surely he will play soon it is only a bruised heel.
If I'd known he was going to miss so many weeks I would of traded him out when he first missed.
You don't waste a trade on a player who is going to miss 1 week.

LUKE

Buddy will be back this week

Russty_

Doubt it.

Troy

You doubted wrong!

Russty_

I did Troy..Happy days for Buddy's owners πŸ™‚

Sandyf62

I just rage traded him to Bont, moved Fogarty to the fwd bench.

Lazza

Yep, thinking same. Bont BE is 58, and his last 2 games very SC'ish..

Lekdog

Crying myself

Scouser

I think if you've held him this long then surely you have to hold unless of course you've survived the premo carnage this year and got a stack of spare trades. Expecting him to be close this week but planning to cover for him and hope Walters is back. Holding them at the same time as our defensive rookies went into freefall has been a big challenge for me and my ranking fallen away from top 500 to 3000 still feel it's the right decision though as too many sideways trades will come back to haunt a lot of people when we get to the pointy end.

Jambo

I agree with Ronke. The mad dash for him or Macrae is a manifestation of “FOMO”. Who cares if you miss out anyway. Like Coach Carter said in response to losing his highest scorers last season, “We’ll have new high scorers this season.” Adapt and thrive!

INPieman

Agreed Jambo. To my surprise Ronke is the 3rd most traded in player. Crazy. It's too late. Just made most of his money. But if your upgrading Billings to Ronke I don't mind it. And it's wait on MacRae. Too expensive now

DavidSA

People will not see it now but only at seasons end 670k for Macrae and won't average over 120 for rest of season.

Holty01

It is a tough one with Macrae though. I think with most you either bring him in now or you may not get him as most midfields are now full premo or 1 short and i would think that last upgrade would be made next 2 weeks.

DavidSA

Agree Holty only can get him in after the dogs bye as last mid upgrade for those who are needing It with that sort timing.

Ricardo

If you don't have Macrae now you'll never have him. If his price were to drop low enough to be able to afford him he's had a massive form slump and you don't want that sort of player.

DavidSA

thats not how it works mate. He is sky high now and probably peaks with a 690k price tag. Only needs to have 2 weeks in a row of under 115 and his BE will sky rocket for 2-3 weeks and thus go back down to 600k

INPieman

He has a date with Jacobs in a few weeks. He will be cheapish again

DavidSA

yeah and then there is teams who have mid depth like Port and Richmond. They play NthMelb twice Port twice Richmond once in final 14 games

Derek

Has had 6 of the first 8 games under roof at home.

Dave

Laird, Simpson, Yeo, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, (Naughton, C,o shea )

Mitchell, crouch, Fyfe, Cripps, Holman, Coniglio, Kelly, Martin ( Coffield, Brodie, Barry)

Gawn, Naitanui ( Cameron)

Heeney, McLean, Spargo, Smith, Petracca, Fritsch, (Crowden, Ahern)

19 trades and 138k left help

BadgerHoney7

naughton to rookie and finlayson/murray/doedee to sicily, next week go the again finlayson/murray/doedee to premo def (heath shaw, webster) then the week after that it shall allow you to go trac or fritsch to robbie gray and if not you can just downgrade crowden/coffield.

redherringfc

Just an idea, but you could get Keefe and Sicily, one as a fwd the other as a def. This gives you a swing that may come in handy.

Keeffe is on the bubble this week, but I don’t know if he’ll play too many more games.

Without looking at breakevens I’d probably offload Crowden and Finlayson, but you could easily make a case for half a dozen others.

Warblegarble

DEF – Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Doedee, FInlayson, Murray (Murphy, Keeffe)

MID – Macrae, Fyfe, Dangerfield, Cripps, Mitchell, M Crouch, Martin, Kelly (Dow, Coffield, Barry)

RUC – Gawn, Naitanui (Olango)

FWD – McLean, Sicily, Heeney, Fritsch, Giles-Langdon, Spargo (Henry, Guelfi)

19 trades and $52,900 in the bank.

Having Doedee, Finlayson and Murray all on field is making me nervous. Finlayson will be the first one to go, but how can I best set up my defensive line? One up, one down?

NoLanguage

I'd punt Doedee first. Finlayson looked a bit better last week, the Dodo looks tired

Mike

WHO DO I BRING INN . YEO . MACRAE ,OR GRAY

AFC1886

Macrae is tempting you’ve missed the boat tho he’s finally up against tougher opponents from here on in so sit and wait (hopefully) for a price drop. Gray has the bye next week so Yeo is probably your best option

Yeahnahyeah

Yeo 100%

BadgerHoney7

yeo or macrae, gray going into a bye soon

NoLanguage

Yeo

Russty_

Yeo…YO!

Sc_Wow

LOUD NOISES!!!!

smart as s

Help, who will score more till the byes?

danger, fyfe, oliver + doedee, finlayson, murray

or

e.phiillips, t.kelly, o'meara +sicily, simpson, jlloyd

BadgerHoney7

don't know what you are doing but number 1 100%

BlueBalls

What are peoples thoughts on THE RECRUIT Matt Eagles?

Will he hold his spot?

BadgerHoney7

if u desperately need a downgrade defender, go for him, but he won't score much and might not hold his spot.

seen_burns

If you need a back rookie I'd be going with Keeffe has the DPP so a benefit for Sicily owners

Andre

Laird, Simpson, Yeo, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, (Naughton, C,o shea )

Mitchell, crouch, Fyfe, Cripps, Holman, Coniglio, Kelly, Martin ( Coffield, Brodie, Barry)

Gawn, Naitanui ( Olango)

Heeney, McLean, Spargo, Smith, Petracca, Fritsch, (Crowden, Ahern)

19 trades and 138k left
need help asap

Cpt

With GAJ back, Kelly holding his own and Danger having spells in Fwd’s. Menengola comes straight in!

6.2% ownership and easy games coming up.

Holman and Finlayson culled for Men’s..

Defying_Madness

Same trades for me except Brayshaw and Doedee. Will be holding Finlay until his bye and swapping him to Hurley. Holman should do well with a weeks rest after so much travelling and will play through the byes. You going early on Phillips?

Cpt

Yep. At 26 Trades, no injuries and rank of 1700ish I’m shopping early.

If he ends up on the pine he becomes my full time loophole, though I doubt it given saints performances.

Dry

Your comment makes no sense, Menegola scored poorly the first few rounds with GAJ back in the team. Round 3 he scored a heap of points in the last quarter when GAJ was sitting on the bench and he got midfield minutes.
Admittingly he did score well on the weekend with GAJ playing, but to me he appears to be the player most negatively impacted by GAJ's return to Geelong.

Cpt

Maybe but he’s going to get third defender at best. His avg is good enough for me. Give me a FWD that’s 100+ each week? Started with McLean, Lambert, Heeney, Smith, Sicily (now in Def). And he’s DPP.

Gray in after bye.

THE SALTSHAKER

im with you Dry, and Gray will be fwd heaps

John

DEF: Laird Yeo Hurley Doedee Cole Naughton (Keefe Murphy)

MID: Fyfe Cripps Titch Martin Cogs Zorko T.Kelly Holman (Banfield Brayshaw Barry)

RUCK: Gawn Martin (Cameron)

FWD: McLean Sicily Heeney Christensen Fritsch Henry (Spargo Guelfi)

20 trades and $450k to upgrade players, any suggestions?

Cpt

Trade Naughton, Switch Sicily to defence. Get Menengola or Gray or Lambert.

John

Trade Naughton to who, Webster?

Cpt

Lambert is my first pick then Menengola the Gray after his bye.

Shake_n_Bake_

M McGovern out for an extended period. Big loss to the crows.

Defying_Madness

Does this mean Murphy gets a chance?

hedski

Hopefully him or D.Fog.

BadgerHoney7

Walker injured as well potentially.

Crowboy94

Murphy will be back. We need his pressure.

Beezneez

I'm thinking D Fogarty like for like replacement. Hartigan should be back this week and, possibly, Riley Knight who I would expect to be picked before Murphy unless Gallucci gets dropped – although being their no. 1 pick last year , the Crows would want to get games into him. Murphy would also be behind Milera when he's over his injury. Crows will also have Alex Keath, Sam Gibson and Curtley Hampton back from injury this week.

Beezneez

PS agree Poholke would be first to go atm.

TommyC99

Do I trade out Billings for Crouch/Oliver. Which means i would keep findlayson, Doedee and Murray. Or Keep Billings, and trade one of those 3 to Simmo

redherringfc

While everyone was watching the best showdown of all time on Saturday, I was torturing myself by watching the Saints. They actually looked good for a quarter and Billings showed glimpses of form (not that you’d know from his 50 points)

I’ve held him this long, I don’t think it’s worth trading him now. For me, It’s a case of hold and wait.

Can you get one of the mids by trading out one of the other 3?

TommyC99

i could but that would mean going early on a Cummings (already have keeffe) instead of Phillips. I know i am breaking the golden rule with rookies, but i had an absolute shocker last week and need to upgrade this week

Sandyf62

I traded out Billings round four for about 150k more than what he is worth now, if I was still holding him, I would look upon him as a rookie, he's scoring like one so might as well, if you had a rookie who wasn't going to make you any more cash and his scoring had dried up, what would you do, let me think for a moment, uprade, so Billings > Oliver looks like a good move.

Simon

Hogan, Tom McDonald, Darling or Mitch Robinson? I’m feeling a pod πŸ™‚

BlueBaggerJosh

Tmac or Darling

Crowboy94

Darling

smart as s

till the byes, which two rookies on field?

Finlayson, murray, doedee, e.phillips, fritsch

r_calve

Doedee and Murray

Sandyf62

I like the look of Fritsch.

Steeeve

Who is best at m6 when all is said and done.
I am assuming the top five defenders are Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Hurley and Sicily.

smart as s

assuming u mean d6, jake lloyd

Finnius

Jeremy Howe

r_calve

webster?

Defying_Madness

Luke Ryan?

Sandyf62

Ryan looks good value.

smart as s

highest priority, who to get first? Danger or fyfe

r_calve

fyfe

redherringfc

Danger might not be this cheap again. I’d get him this week and then Fyfe as soon as possible. Almost identical breakevens.

Sandyf62

You should have started with Fyfe, Danger not so much.

b_sh3p

Fyfe

Crowboy94

Going to do these trades this week.

Naughton to Keefe to have that swing with Sicily.
Doedee to Yeo

Play 3 rookies on field in FWD line this week and swing Sicily back.

Leaves me with 18 trades and 110k in bank, with 5 rookies on field to upgrade

Ahmad rubas

Josh Kelly out for his 6th week for any other geniuses that kept him

smart as s

glad i swapped to coniglio after 1st week of injury given he is my favourite afl player

Defying_Madness

I wish I didnt swap him to Coniglio not sure why you are happy with that trade

smart as s

averaging 107.7 for a sub 500k, cant be greedy, could have been worse!

Defying_Madness

Look at what he has averaged since you brought him in thats all that matter

smart as s

doesn't matter dude, he is the ninth best mid at the moment in the comp, wouldnt surprise me if he is top scorer for next round. Except for the geelong match, hes been fantastic.

Defying_Madness

What do you mean 'doesn't matter'? The average is insignificant the only thing that matters is their total points since you brought them into your team. That's why chasing points doesn't work and is a bad strategy.

smart as s

i reckon the average is a good indication of how well a player is going this season. I dont care what you think, coniglio will be top 5 mid by season's end imho. Good luck to you and your unnecessary arguments. Must be tough to be your friend or family.

Holty01

i think you have misunderstood what DF is saying. He is averaging 107.9 for anyone who had him since round 1. If you picked him up in round 5, he is averaging 93.25 for you.

Captain Risky

Might have the Jacobs tag this week as well, so that isn't going to improve his scoring..

Holty01

True. Would think it is him or Shiels

Defying_Madness

Yeah thats exactly what I was trying to say thanks Holty

smart as s

it seems i cant convince you how good a pick coniglio has been. That 64 he scored has made him a bad pick in your book, but not in mine, saw plenty of positives from him.

smart as s

If we take out the geelong game, where he scored 64 with 28 possies at an unheard 27 DE, he is averaging 106.25 pts for my team, dnt know wat the fuss was about. He certainly passes the 'eye' test and i will happily include him in my most disposal multis most week.

Daniel Z

You don't get to "take out" a game though.
As far as what D_M and Holty are trying to say, I don't think the argument is that Coniglio was a terrible pick but it largely depends on when you brought him in (especially if it was for Kelly). If you brought him in when Kelly was announced as a late out ahead of round 4, you're doing alright (he's scored 489 points since then) but if you brought him in after giving Kelly 1-2 weeks to get right, then you're probably not too happy. I can see him top 8, but cannot see him improving his average to 115 (which is what you need to end up top-5 mid most years).

Interestingly enough, two other mids that were priced almost identically to Coniglio after round 3 have outperformed him by quite a bit: Ed Curnow, 592 points over that period; and Toby McLean, 558 points.

smart as s

out of curiosity, who r the 8 mids u would hav ahead of coniglio

TommyC99

Danger, Fyfe, Oliver, titch, Dusty, crouch, Macrae, Cripps, Ablett, Jelwood should all average higher than cogs

Ahmad rubas

yeah good trade seems to be slowing down after the easier draw at the start of the season but seems to be slowing down should still be a solid m8

smart as s

I remember that geelong game, gws had a poor game, coniglio was let down by his team mates, but he still got 28 disposals and 5 tackles for a 64!

Sc_Wow

Cog was terrible in the Geelong game, every time he touched it he turned it over. Can’t blame his teammates for that

smart as s

yeah i think his disposal efficiency was around 30%, it was a bad game, but he still got 28 disposals, cant be too bothered about that game, he is still a fantastic proposition going forward im sure.

Ahmad rubas

his DE was terrible that game

TRIGGA_HAPPY

13 yep 13%
That is a whole other level of shite

smart as s

my bad, that must be a record then for that amount of possies

Russty_

Unusual for him being such a ball butcher, maybe he was hungover and un-co?..lol

Crowboy94

I didn't.. traded him to MaCrae after the 1st week he was out and haven't looked back.

Ahmad rubas

nice move must be flying up the rankings

smart as s

I think o'meara was hard done by sc scoring on the weekend, given he scored almost twice in DT

Sandyf62

I just did two rage trades, I'm sick of holding injured players, having them sitting on the bench not knowing when they will be back. So Walters > Oliver and Buddy > Bont, moved Fogarty to the fwd bench, my mids look way better now, with only one rookie left ( Kelly ) and he could be a keeper at M8 or M9. My defence will just have to cope for another week without any upgrades. Is this a good move or should I uprade my defence first which has four rookies onfield, plus Hurley under a injury cloud, I would probably get in Yeo and Simpson, or do that next week like I planned.

Ja191

Walters will be back this week if not next, wasted trade. I see more warrant to the buddy trade but still would hold

Russty_

Yeah I read he "wants" to come back in this week so he feels he's ready.
Fogarty might have some good short term Job security too with McGovern and Walker injured.

NoLanguage

I have Walters too Sandy. Hold him for sure

paul

I am sticking with Buddy as I feel he and Sydney will have a really good second half to the season. Plus buddy at the end of last got a 160 & 180 his big is big.

Sandyf62

Thanks for all the advice guys, I ended up going Naughton > Yeo and Walters > Oliver. Getting in Yeo covers Hurley and I really needed another premo mid as I still had three rookies on field in the mids, now two and trading out Walters meant I could still afford to upgrade next week as well. I was also worried that Walters might not get as much midfield time when he does come back, thinking they will ease him back into it.

BlueBaggerJosh

Doedee or Finlayson out is a topic almost all of us will be dealing with, I'm thinking Finlayson out this week as they have a harder game and Doedees spot is much more secure hopefully giving us an 80 or so

James

Naughton to Webster and Christensen to Darling, thoughts?

Ja191

Very nice pod picks

BlueBaggerJosh

Yes I am debating who I should bring in out of those two

Russty_

How long's Naughton out for guys?…been busy today.

Sandyf62

Two to three weeks, needs to go anyway due to his BE.

Russty_

Thanks sandy πŸ™‚

Tyruddanaut

Two to three weeks to make the trade

Browncow

Exactly. Fingers crossed Cumming has a solid game 2 then bye to Naughton

ERT

laird, Simpson, Yeo, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, (Naughton, C,o shea )

Mitchell, crouch, Fyfe, Cripps, Holman, Coniglio, Kelly, Martin ( Coffield, Brodie, Barry)

Gawn, Naitanui ( Olango)

Heeney, McLean, Spargo, Smith, Petracca, Fritsch, (Crowden, Ahern)

19 trades and 138k left
need help asap

ROB14

I have 2 spots to fill with premos in def, midfield and forward line… Which area should I add a premo to this week?

Defying_Madness

Depends on who you want to fill those slots with and how they are priced

Russty_

The way the defensive rookies are going , I'd say fill up your defence, Yeo and Simmo or T-Mac.

ROB14

Cool, just what I was thinking!

Simon

Who’s better out of darling and hogan and why?

RobDog

Hogan, is running through the middle. Darling won't keep up the scoring when Kennedy hits form.

Tyruddanaut

Darling is the one that they are delivering to. It doesn’t have as much to do with form as you think. But I agree with Hogan anyway.

seen_burns

Hogan is 60k cheaper

StevoRivo

Nice podcast gents. Liked the guest from Fantasy Insider too. Liked the Rose Ceremony. If it came down to one defender choice, who gets the rose? Yeo or Webster?

And did I not hear that future “special guests” may be coming? 🀫

hedski

My trades were gonna be Finlayson and the Dood to Simmo and Howe (couple $k short of Yeo).
Been scared off Howe now with his hammy scans.
I think it might be time to smash Billings out of my team (finally).
Fin to Simmo √
Shittings to Hogan? (Keeps some $ in the kitty, could swap Simmo to Yeo) or Shittings to Menegola?
Cheers lads.

INPieman

I don't think you can run the risk of bringing in a bloke that went for scans on his hammy. If it was GWS he'd be named, then a late out, & then out for 6 months. Don't take that risk

hedski

Yeah reversed trades quick sticks when I heard that mate.
Another option is Lukey R. Would allow me to get Yeo before Simmo.
Had Hurley, Yeo and Simmo as my targets, bit worried about Hurley now.
Been trying to punt Billings for weeks, not sure I can hold back this week, don't care how much he's lost, he's just so shit.

Tyruddanaut

Consider Webster. He looks the goods and has a high scoring role. Slightly cheaper than Simmo, which means you can also get in Yeo. Simmo has a BE of 100+ anyway. He’ll be underneath 500k next week. Hopefully another shocker.
If you don’t have Hurley, he’ll probably be better anyway for a future option

hedski

I think I'll leave Webster alone Ty, have Savage already and have been trying to offload Billings for a while, shit just keeps poppin up. Will no doubt get Phillips next week, that'll do me for saints this year I reckon.

Lazza

McGovern out for 2 months with ankle injury… Mitch that is… :))

Tyruddanaut

YOU almost scared the 4% of people who have him

DavidSA

GO CROWS! top 12 here we come lol
Just a shocking year

Beezneez

Means opportunity for other players to step up. I really rate Alex Keath who will be back from injury – although a defender he can play forward and take a grab. Gibson, Riley Knight, Cheney and Curtly Hampton also off injury list soon. Hopefully Brad Crouch and Rory Sloane can get back on the park sooner rather than later.
