The Jock Reynolds team are going to China!

A special themed edition of the Panic Room this week as we join in on AFL’s attempt to make footy a world game. We’ll take in the sights, the sounds, the smells, and the smog of China and see what SuperCoach lessons we can learn on the other side of the world. Is Crouching here perfecting his fly kick? Will Jock be found at Wǔtái Shān? The home of Buddhist monks seeking wisdom (thanks, Google) Can Higgo be found mentoring Chinese students at mathematics? And we dare ask the question, could Patch be a communist? Lek has spoken on his behalf.

The SuperCoach train rumbles on and we’ve got a fresh batch of annoyances to sink our trades into. Aaron Naughton is gone for 2-3 weeks after stuffing his ankle, with the Dogs having their bye in four weeks it really wouldn’t surprise me if we didn’t see him again until round 13. Buddy was another few weeks away during the week but has been named anyway? Something is a bit off there. Josh Kelly seems to have vanished off the face of the Earth, wherever he is, Toby Greene is there with him.

You know the drill by now. Patch and Lek have put on their Sunday best and hit the shops to track down some absolute bargain premiums in the podcast this week. We’ve got five confirmed debutantes this week, read up on their reserve form over at Barron’s Around the Grounds article. Captain McCaptainface has done a Charlie Dixon and resurrected itself from the dead (with the help of Patch), and Demo has delivered some more cheat sheet goodness to get around for the week ahead.

新聞

(The News)

Lachie Murphy owners rejoice! He’s back for tonights clash in one of four changes at the Crows. They’ve lost the big names of Matt Crouch, Tex Walker, and Mitch McGovern. Darcy “SnoopFog” (sorry) Fogarty gets another game. For the Dogs, Aaron Naughton will be out for the next few weeks with his foot / ankle injury.

Jacob Heron (who dis?) (DEF – 102.4k) will make his debut for the Suns, replacing Sam Day in the only change for the match against Port in China. GWS have made two changes, neither SuperCoach relevant, for their game against North who are unchanged. Essendon are playing the kids! Jordan Ridley (DEF – 123.9k) and Dylan Clarke (MID / FWD – 123.9k) will debut and Matt Guelfi has been recalled. On the other hand, out go Michael Hurley to injury, Darcy Parish has been dropped and Kobe Mutch rested. At Geelong, Tomahawk replaces an injured Esava Ratugolea (spelt it right first try!). John Longmire came and said during the week that they just don’t know when Buddy will play, in a refreshing piece of honesty he was bang on because Buddy is BACK this week along with Hanners. Sonny Walters returns for Freo along with the rebounding Nathan Wilson. Taylin Duman makes way. The Saints are giving Bailey Rice his debut (DEF – 123.9k). Pendles returns for the Pies and Alex Fasolo will line up for his first game of the year. Callum Brown is one of those unlucky to miss.

On Sunday there’s big news at the Blues with Marc Murphy fit and ready to return. Weitering is back in and there are possible debuts on the cards for Pat Kerr (FWD – 123.9k) and Matt Shaw (MID – 180.3k). Ed Curnow will miss. For the Dees, Jack Viney is one of five new names. Charlie Spargo, Bailey Fritsch, and Jeff Garlett are all on the extended bench. Out west for the top of the table clash, the Tigers have added 4 names with no confirmed outs as yet. while the Eagles are welcoming back Jeremy McGovern, Nic Nat, Dom Sheed, and Luke Shuey. Fraser McInnes is their only confirmed out. The Lions have also added 4 names without any confirmed outs. Jaegar is out for the Hawks and they’ve confirmed Mitch Lewis (FWD – 123.9l) will debut. Rookies Dave Mirra and James Worpel are on an extended bench.

邪惡的房子

(The House of Evil)

Another week of poor downgrade options. Hopefully you took advantage last week of those on the bubble. If you’re not going early on him, Ed Phillips is on the horizon last week. as is Isaac Cumming.

These guys come with a free frogurt (that’s good!)

-47 – Brayden Crossley*

-34 – Brad Scheer*

-33 – Lachie Keeffe*

-26 – James Worpel*

-25 – Dave Mirra

-25 – Matt Guelfi

-19 – Charlie Spargo

-15 – Matt Eagles*

These premiums contain potassium benzoate (that’s bad!)

Gaz – 173

Michael Walters – 162

Dusty – 162

Pendles – 161

Buddy – 161

Patrick Cripps – 150

Adam Treloar -150

Titch – 147

Isaac Heeney – 145

Stephen Coniglio – 136

平穩的凱維的本週鎖定

(Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week)

It’s time, folks. I tip my hat to those of you with the plums to start without Patrick Dangerfield from round 1. Is he back? He’s had two 130+ games over the last four weeks. He’s now priced at 604k after his price has plummeted almost 150k in 8 weeks. Sounds awful, but he’s still averaging 115. With a breakeven of 119 this week and a soft matchup against Essendon, you definitely want this guy in your team at the end of the year.

You could wait one more week. That breakeven is high-ish and he doesn’t have a great recent record against the Bombers, but you need to start building the war chest to get him in soon.

嘿,現在,你是一個草案星

(Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar)

I didn’t max out Patch’s credit card on business class and travel half way around the world to not watch some footy, no matter how awful it may be. The Suns are pretty useless from a Draftstars perspective, giving up the the most points per match, =1 120+ scores and outright 1st 100+ scores. For their part, Port Adelaide are the 3rd highest scorers per match.

I’ve fired up the Fantasy Insider number cruncher and this is what it has spat out.

My take:

Based on the intro above, I’ll go against what Fantasy Insider is laying down and target high scoring Port mids. This brings both Gray’s, Rocky, Polec and Ebert into consideration, even mid-tier guys like Wines and SPP. Fantasy Insider doesn’t want a bar of Robbie in this contest which is fair enough, he scored 60 twice against the Suns last year. A different role and a man in confidence, I couldn’t lock him in quick enough.

RUC

I’m going to stack the mids so Brayden Crossley at 7k is too hard to ignore. He won’t blow the roof off…uh, blow the smog out of the air, but he did score a 69 on debut. If that’s his ceiling that’s good enough for 7k. Paddy Ryder scored 115 against Witts in this fixture last year.

FWD

Sam Gray ($11.6k) is a bit all over the shop but should enjoy beating up the Suns. He had 109 vs Brisbane and 111 vs Norf earlier in the year. Jake Neade ($8.25k) has laid 17 tackles in 4 weeks. He hasn’t had a huge game as yet, but a few cheap goals will help him out. Robbie Gray ($15.1k) and Rocky ($13k) are available as forwards. Jack Watts ($10.25k) enjoyed playing the Suns while at the Dees. He has a 99 and 109 against them in his past two.   

DEF

Steven May ($10.95k) buggered off to China at the right time. He’s hauled down 26 marks in 3 weeks and should see plenty of it again. Jack Bowes (8.3k) will put it all together one day and deliver, not saying he will this round but that’s a great price for his potential upside. I’ll recommend spending down in this position, there’s not a lot at the top end that is reliable.

MID

My midfield three have huge ceilings. I’ve sunk a lot of my salary into these three and I’m hoping they salute. I’m not a fan of any sub 10k mids, Charlie Ballard may be popular at 6k to help fill up with guns, but I just don’t see his upside. Lachie Weller’s ($10.8k) last 6 games have been between 72-90. Elsewhere, Touk Miller ($13.7) isn’t a bad option if you’re not keen on Rocky. He has three back-to-back 100’s to his name. Chad and SPP are available in the 10k range, although neither have shown much of a ceiling so far.

My lineup:

Have a great week, folks. Looking forward to Saturday night myself. The free-to-air coverage of Saints v Pies! *kissy fingers* … ahem

Ok guys need help. Ranked 38th overall but Nank possibility of being late out has screwed up my plans to bring danger in. Option 1) Doedee to Tuohy (he isn’t going to be a keeper, will be traded to Hurley after his bye) and Nankervis to Nit Nat. I will have 10 trades left after going to full premo so don’t worry about trades. Option 2) Doedee to Keefe (I know his JS sucks but I can link with Sicily) and Nankervis to Grundy Feel like option 2 is the safe option but bringing in two players with round 13… Read more »

Hey BVB, out of those two it would be option 2 for me but have a think about Kreuzer too, I watched the Blues v Bombers game and he looked to be moving well again.

I have got the cash to double upgrade Doedee and Murray to Simpson and Yeo, but also have Nank with no cover on the bench which is concerning.

It will be too late to do anythign about Nank if he is a late out, Should i Go for Nank to Grundy and just one of Simpson or Yeo?

Other thank that team seems to have missed most of the carnage so far.

BlueBoy

Nank to Nic Nat if required?

It depends on your ranking I reckon.

SC_Sixty6

Even if you're going for rank I can see Simpson and Yeo score power outweighing Murray and doedee plus the donut if it happens. Also better for long run.

C-JAM

Yea just going for league wins at the moment. started too slow this year for ranking. I'll take the punt a keep Nank! Was hoping to set and forget rucks this year.

BadgerHoney7
Guest
BadgerHoney7

I disagree, Doedee, Murray and Nank combined ave is 251. they won't outscore that. In saying this go for Simmo and Yeo, Nank isn't even confirmed out this week, you will be spewing if you trade a players who is averaging in the 90s and he still plays. Just sit tight and hold.

Valens_FC

Murray or Doedee onfield?

Doedee against the Dogs I reckon

Murray. Didn't use it that well last week otherwise would have scored 80 odd. Doedee lost confidence. Apparently wet in Adelaide tonight.

Maverick_

Huge BE of 135 too. We are in some real trouble financially if Jacobs can hold him to a 70. Unless ya plan on playing cogs at M9 till seasons end then his price becomes irrelevant. Fingers crossed he goes 110+

Think Titch will bounce back this week. Even though the Lions have history of using Robinson to tag, it seems in the past few weeks they have been heavily scored against from the SC perspective. If you're looking for more of a POD, then I think Oliver an excellent choice without E Curnow there, but the reason I'm weary of captaining Gawn (the Kruezer factor) could also be the reason that limits Oliver's ceiling.

News out of the saints is that Rice will be the go to guy out of defence. This is great news for most as he will be a solid downgrade option. However it may effect Webster & Savage

Maverick_
Guest
Maverick_

Why would rice play this role when Webster is playing ut so well?

Sc_Wow
Guest
Sc_Wow

I think because the saints aren’t winning so something needs to change, Gilbert out is also forcing Webster to be more of a lock down. See how it plays out

Looks like I may go yeo this week instead of Webster then.

Only thing is it’s now or never on Webster. Low BE, and huge pod. Could be a game changer IF he keeps his role

Savage has been getting 70's so no real affect there. For Webster his form has been good…..can he keep it up?

The reason why you change a go to guy in defense is to free up the previous ones who are getting attention.

Dean
Guest
Dean

For the people that started Nankervis and are now panicking about him playing this week, did you pick him as a keeper or as a guy to get you pretty decent points up until his bye when you would know who the top 2 rucks are and use him to trade up?

Leonie
Guest
Leonie

Fair point that is why I am trading up to Brodie Boy.

Daniel Z
Guest
Daniel Z

To be honest, a little bit of column a, and a little bit of column b.

I thought he could be top 3-4 rucks by year's end and outside of Gawn, I didn't know who else would be up there. It's looking pretty clear that Grundy and Gawn are a cut above, so I was planning to go Nank-Grundy after the round 13 bye. Still might stick with that but I'm hanging on to my 2nd trade for the round as late as I possibly can and will decide before Sunday's games.

Pick 3 out of Finlayson, Mirra, Murphy, Fritsch, Guelfi, Keefe, Henry (Can swing Sicily with Keefe so no more than 2 in either line)

Also Holman, Phillips or Spargo in the midfield.

Can't do any loopholes so need to pick the right ones.

Caught the last bit of Hardwick’s interview and also saw that Nank trained (A little). It looks like he might play, however I will leave it as late as possible before I trade to Grundy.
Anyone else have any news?

Brock
Guest
Brock

Currently ranked 23 and very concerned with the possibility of Nank being a late out as I will then be looking at a 0 with Olango on the bench. Finlayson-Phillips is already locked in and I am now thinking of trading Nank to Grundy. I had originally planned to trade Nank to Ryder/Grundy during the byes but might have to do the trade now. Thoughts on if I should pull the trigger or not?

Guest

Pull the trigger, I did it last week to Grundy , no more worrying about Nank, he's been a great servant but the weekly in or out is a disruption each week, do it and move on.

Yeah good question Julianne, I just do that if I know I'll be around to attend to it if Danger gets a big score, if for example, you were going to have a life this weekend and not be able to log on and attend to it, then just set your VC and C. If Danger gets 130+, obviously I'll leave the C on Olango, or if Danger doesn't do well, I'll bring my main Ruckman onto the field and C someone else.

Hey Trigga. Just chill on Rockliff. I know he is cheap as chips, but he is another break down candidate like Crouch. Don't jump out of one fire and into another one. How long is Crouch for anyway? Doedee to Yeo is solid mate. I am going Henry to Keeffe to raise some quick cash and put my Sicily swing in place and then Naughton straight up to Yeo. The prick wont be back until after his bye and has a BE of 100. Easy decision. Good luck this round mate.

A pod is only a pod if your cash league opponents don't have them

Daniel Z
Guest
Daniel Z

A POD is only relevant if they're scoring above a non-POD. This is why if you're doing well, you probably don't have that many PODs – if someone is scoring really well, most coaches try to get him as soon as possible. Ideally, you started with those PODs, then everyone else brings them in later (at a heftier cost and having missed out on their earlier points).

Rocksta_

Jackson Macrae in unstoppable form at present. 86 at half time. So much for being an outside player. He’s been in everything. Looks very bloody hard to tag as well given he’s good on the inside and outside.A must have this year I think.

HumanBob
Guest
HumanBob

Outside players usually do very well in wet conditions due to the ball 'squirting' out of almost every ground ball contest. If you're an outsider that's what you spend your life looking for. In the wet Hard-ball getters suffer in SC due to the close contest and smothered disposals gutting their d.e. despite them being the only reason that the outsiders get the ball most of the time.

He scored 177 and had 36 disposals (12 kicks's, 24 hb's) at 72 % efficiency so it's funny he got another 9 points. compare that to Greenwood who scored 112 19 contested possessions = 76 points 1 contested mark = 6 points 1 mark = 2 points 11 tackles = 44 points… Read more »

None of the 'experts' had him in their votes for the game and neither would I. Not saying he didn't play well but his score just shows how misleading this system of awarding and gathering statistics can be. I watch Dangerfield's scoring sometimes and just wonder where all the points come from. Some players are suited to Supercoach others not so. Based on Macraes game last night, Robbie Gray should have scored 300 points in last weeks game.

It's not a clanger if you kick it to the opposition, it's a clanger if you turn it over and you kick it to less than a 50/50 contest over 40m away or to a contest within 40m. They don't punish you for your teammate not being able to take the mark.

SC_Sixty6
Guest
SC_Sixty6

Are you serious? It's not a clanger if you kick it to the opposition……that is the definition of a clanger. Kicking straight to the opposition is turnover therefore CLANGER.

It's like saying oh you only kicked it 20 meters to the opposition who then kicked a goal so no clang. Haha

Jacob
Guest
Jacob

I don't make the rules, champion data do.
It's an effective disposal if you kick it 40+m to a 50/50 contest or better for your team, regardless of the outcome. Less than 40m it's not an effective disposals if you kick it to a contest, even if your player ends up with the ball. You can find this info out if you do some digging.

JohnDJ59

I agree with what you are saying Bob, but at the time I was arguing that you were better off keeping Doedee and Finlayson, for now, since they were playing, than Naughton or Duman who weren't. My team has had so many injures that I prefer to have players that are playing compared to not.

HumanBob

Definitely, I agree 100% with that qualification John. Anybody who trades out a playing rook instead of an injured rook needs to take a good hard look at themselves.

JohnDJ59
Guest
JohnDJ59

They were trading out Doedee and Finlayson because of their high BE which was fair enough in isolation, but when they said they would be putting Naughton on the bench because he wouldn't be going down in value, ie injured, I said but his BE is 100 so you will have to trade him out anyway and you won't have any cover, but they weren't worried,only about the $, I said sometimes having cover for injures is more important than a few dollars more.

He's a must have if you want to have a crack at weekly or total top score. Rookies have been great for cash, we should all be able to afford him at 720k. trade your M7 to him it's a 60 point upgrade

I am 660 points off the lead. I started Zerrett instead of Macrae. That’s 440 points right there. Did I contemplate Macrae over Zerrett? Only because a few mentioned him pre-season. But I had Treloar and Bont ahead of him. But one selection like that can really make your season. Full kudos to those who started him.

If someone said to you at the start of the season that you would be able to trade Nank to Kreuzer and pocket cash, you would say thanks very much. Right now Kreuzer is a good chance to be number 3 behind Gawn and Grundy. Is it worth the extra 150k to go Grundy? Not sure on that. Kreuzer fits my bye structure better than Grundy (Grundy has same bye as Gawn). Kreuzer also a better bye than Nank. I understand the hesitation on Kreuzer, but he was awesome last season and seemed to hit that form last week. A… Read more »

M. Crouch over Macrae really really starting to hurt now – has now cost me 240 points (pending a 50 from Holman)…
However, much like Dangerfield last few years I can't help but question how Macrae is getting these points (ie. compared to others games not nearly getting same points)??

Do I take Macrae's 177 or do I captain Ronke? Macrae's game was a good but it wasn't a 15 tackle 10 goals 200 point game that is 97.7% inevitable by the Ronke today.

Glad I held Doedee. In my humble opinion I think people were too quick to ditch him. Understand, many are close to full premium and he must go soon but also believe he has very close been the best rookie (not much between him & Kelly which I'll explain) Kelly is averaging 100~ odd, Doedee 80-85 odd Who is the best midfielder & forward you don't have, let's say Danger & Yeo. Danger is averaging 115 (with huge upside) Yeo is averaging 100 odd. The difference is nothing. BTW, I could have said Macrae instead of Danger which would have… Read more »

I think it's more the cash generation yes he scored well but essentially he just broke even and his BE won't be low enough next week to make an amazing amount of cash. I've personally kept him as I'm more likely to get rid of finlayson before the gws game but it seems like doedee has hit peak price and moving him on for a yeo or simmo would of been a good move

Jack
Guest

I think I'll keep him to his bye round now Ahmad, the way I see it he keeps his 80 average going he will be pushing 400k by bye rounds. He has a late bye to so easy upgrade to anyone.

Holty01

Holty01

Hi Jack. Yes he scored well but his purpose in your team is to generate quick money to get to full premo as quick as possible. He has stopped making you money and if you are relying on him making more, you will need to hope he scores really well next week as well to start generating you cash again. Plus you cant compare him with Kelly as he is still making you good money. I traded Doedee this week with Naughton to get Keefe and Simpson. Yes i missed Doedees score but ill be far better off in the… Read more »

Whatyasmokin
Guest
Whatyasmokin

Not really, he only needs a 75 odd next week and he'll be making cash again, and its defence, also many rookies need culling and he is still getting large amounts of TOG which shows me (vs someone like Finlayson at least with reduced TOG) that he's not going to be managed and is handling the demands of the game. You are right about the Kelly comparison although a player of his value throws one stinker and they can bleed significantly, which is possibly happening as we speak. Plus another gun midfieldervallows a purchase of a must have and possible… Read more »

Whatyasmokin
Guest
Whatyasmokin

Yep for sure, I reckon hes more a comparison for Finlayson, and ive seen the question asked a bit of who to dump first. Three round average is 62 Finlay 69 Doedee so it makes sense to keep him. Plus as you say defence is some where you can get away with that scoring compared to a midfielder. As midfieldees can hit sc match winning high scores whilst also opening up possibilities of another captain option.

Jack Macrae. Oh my lord…………Went into last night's game with a BE of 62 and a price tag of $676,400. He comes out and pumps another insane 177SC. Not sure what his BE will be, but I guess it would be around 50 AFTER another mega price rise. Would not be surprised if his price next week will be around $730K. And the week after? Scary to think. I don't have him and I think he aint coming into my side until well after the byes. Such is life………Just gotta build my team to max power without him and then… Read more »

That makes two of us mate. I have to now seriously consider paying top dollar and possibly removing Zach Merrett from my team next week. He is just that good. Merrett has been under whelming and being a sideways move, getting Macrae is almost like an upgrade in all reality. Do you know what he will be worth next week? My guess is around $735K. If he is much more than that, then upgrading to him from Merrett may be out of reach even then. Got $270K after I dump Crowden for Phillips next week and then Zerrett to Macrae.… Read more »

Most lines are progressing well. Plenty of cash generation as all rookies currently playing, but you are right, I will have to assess if it is in fact do-able without it throwing everything else out of whack. But by god, I will be trying to get him in as he will be close to $800K the following week the way he is going.

Hey TopH. I reckon it will be up around $715k. Crazy expensive. But then again, we got Danger at that price early on. I’m tempted to chase his points & can’t believe his run of form. Just hoping Danger goes big this week. Are you tempted on Macrae also?

Its scary how well he has scored in the last month. Still dont understand how he scored 177 last night but he was deserving of the best score in the game. Im sticking to my structure however. He may slot in to my side later in the season but bringing him in now will put me back several weeks trying to get to full premo.

AuroraBorealis?!

Its definitely too late for Ronke manolaki. He's now going to gain the attention of every clubs defence because of his 7 last week, and 200k+ is too much to pay for a rookie.

if you have sicily keefe is worth it for the switch especially if you are going for league (his js isnt that good). Missed the boat on ronke, too late. Could go one up one down this week and possibly a double down next and build the war chest for the byes.
