There are too many options this week. Too. Many. Options.

We’ve got blokes coming off their bye – your Tommy Rockliffs, your Justin Westhoffs, your Robbie Grays. We’ve got blokes we need to fix up our bye structures in round 12 – your Kade Simpsons, your Toby McLeans. We’ve got the cheapies – your Michael Walters, Dustin Martins, Angus Brayshaws. We’ve got the essential rookies – your Tim Smiths, your Bailey Rices, your Jordan Ripleys.

WE NEED MORE TRADES.

We just can’t do it all this week.

So, Lekdog and Patch try and figure out what to do. They try to prioritise, they try to figure it out, they get down and dirty to throw some mud around and sees what sticks.

Chuck in some earbuds, crack open a beverage of choice and get ready for the chaos that is round 11.

Unrelated to SuperCoach but is it just me or did Darcy Gardiner just get away with blue murder??? IMO he managed to punch Hayward in the head twice in the scuffle in the last quarter – escaped with a $1500 fine…

Should be a week. This system basically consists of 'What one bloke reckons.' It's a joke.

What is the go with T Smith at the Dees? Haven't seen him – but his scores look good. Is there someone back to take his spot or should I lock him in Community?
Thinking of OUT: Stephenson, ZMerret IN: Danger, T Smith

Jack
Guest

I believe Smith has taken Weidermans spot Bells and you would think with Melbourne pushing for a top4 spot they would be looking at the best short term option, which is clearly Smith

Put a line through Ryder. Read he isn’t even training during the week. Haven’t had to look at other Rucks, so thought I better have a sqiz. Grundy is $620k. That is a big number. I had a look at his scores, they also are very large. Very impressive and clearly top 2 rucks in game. Or is he? I will play the devils avocado again. Looking through his numbers, he has beat up on the little blokes. Scored massive against GWS, Geelong & Buldogs, but everyone does, they don’t have any decent ruckmen. He got Carlton when Kruzer was… Read more »

I’d think a majority of his points aren’t scored from ruck contests themselves. Avg 22 possessions a game , nearly 10 of the contested, nearly 5 clearances a game, nearly 5 tackles a game and an average of 220 metres gained per game. Him and Gawn, clear top 2 ruckman in my book.

Derek
Guest
Derek

Good point Dognino.

Jack
Guest
Jack

It's a good point but also your point still had some merit. His hitouts to advantage will drop against quality ruckmen.
It's very possible that Grundy & Kreuzer both average ~110 from here on. Can't really see another option, unless NicNats tog increases

Derek
Guest
Derek

WCE arnt going to change a winning formula. NicNat TOG of about 60% is working really well. Won’t change.

Vardy will be back soon as well

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

No love for Nicnat Derek?…he's going ok with limited gametime, will probably have a few crazy big scores too.

Derek
Guest
Derek

I’m worried that WCE are going well and won’t go away from what is working well for them. NicNat starts each quarter and plays about 10 mins, then has a rest and comes back for the last 7ish mins of the quarter as fresh as a daisy. It is working. Plus Vardy is close to returning.

Jack
Guest
Jack

So we wait 2 more weeks Derek, he plays 2 of the best big bastards in the business. If he averages 100 the next 2 it's enough for me, I'll bring him in after his bye.
It sucks that Lycett has his bye before him though
Who is your alternative now that Ryder is not?

Nice one. I started him, but alas the injury struck. I can't warrant the Nic/Nat back to Kreuz atm, Nic Nat BE to low, I don't make $ from it, if Nic Nat TOG goes up he can match Kreuz…. perhaps a bye round switcheroo trade….hmmm.

Have a look at his around the ground stats. Speaks for itself. Even if he has a tough time against Gawn/Sandi he WILL get possessions and tackle. He's the 4th midfielder.

I've got 1 rookie upgrade left (Fritsch to McLean after round 12), but also got Goldspud to trade out during the bye's. Would love Grundy but Kreuz or Nic Nat 100k cheaper is a lot easier to trade to, especially a round 13 bye ruck for a round 12.

Love your Grundy analysis Derek, more food for thought

Westhoff. Boak averaged 85 last year and I don't believe his role has changed since then.
Westhoff has averaged in the 90's before and has benefitted this year from Ryder missing which may happen again going off Derek's post.

Defying_Madness

Defying_Madness

My problem with regards to Rocky without mentioning his injury history is that he is a mid. My midfield is fine for the byes and I think I have only 1 donut in the midfield over all 3 weeks. I am in need of a forward premo from port/gc so if Gray tonnes up this week and plays enough midfield I will be bringing him in next week. I will be watching Hawks vs Port very closely considering I will be at the game.

Randomcliche2

Randomcliche2

Held him. 🙂 But yeah, there are like 5 musts but ultimately comes down to do you need to generate more cash to get to full premo, or are you there with the rookies you have. If the latter then Rocky, Walters, Hall, all have rediculous BE's and a few other premo mids are very juicy. But remember to look past BE's to see if they meet your strategy…I know someone who nearly bought a buble ruck last week who went on to score 25…be careful its a jungle out there.

Steve
Guest
Steve

Would anyone consider Ed Curnow to be a good pick up?

Carlton have the softest draw in the comp after the bye and he averages 117 without Murphy in the side this year.

Or would you rather go for someone life Dusty, Gaff or Treloar?

Cheers community

Lazza

Great POD .. he and Gaff are incredibly consistent, but ceiling not as high as the other two.. I guess it depends on how many boom/bust players you have… the consistent scorers underpin your team.

His BE is -118, coming toward the pointy end of the season many of us will only trade down a handful more rooks to fill out the team. A guy who even if he avgs 65 from here on that will be $350k is pretty damn valuable imo.

What are your thoughts community

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

Hey Nick, unless you're ranked right up there, and you mainly play for rank, I reckon just get who you want and be prepared for one bad bye round, if it's mainly Leagues you play for, why bring a bunch of guys in you wouldn't normally want just to get your score up there?
The byes don't affect you too much if it's mainly Leagues you play for, you might cop one or even two losses in the byes and can still win your league at the end of it.
Cheers.

Derek
Guest
Derek

Rocky won’t be a top 10 mid.

Walters is very likely to be a top 8 forward.

Easy choice, but need to think about the byes, so will look at him again after his bye if he hasn’t re-injured his knee again.

Tom Phillips? What are people's thoughts? Looking at him, Heppell or Selwood as a cheap POD

Phillips an interesting one, I think next season a real chance of going next level. Massive tank but just not quite elite mid yet.

ROB14

ROB14

Hmmm I just can't decide, if you take away that game that got KO'd his average would be over 100… Or I bring in Walters and Rockliff and miss out on Smith… Tough decision

theRealPod

Phillips 5 game avg is 110+ so if you decide to go with him he's a bargain at $500k.

Beezneez
Guest
Beezneez

I've looked at him and he is tempting. I'm looking to see how Crouch or J Kelly go in the next few weeks for my final mid spot – even though I traded both out previously. Personally, I would pick him as a POD before Hurley and Selwood but it's kinda toss of the coin.

Beezneez

Ps Heppell not Hurley

The Ranger

I'd take Selwood out of those three.

Walters shouldn't be your bench cover if he is in your team. Will be one of the top forwards this year

Jack
Guest
Jack

Don't think he will be a pod either way think it will be.close to a 50/50.
I do see the appeal. What's a trade worth? 200k? Or 200 points maybe?
He doesn't have a bye so he could make you 60 points right there (based on him scoring 100 and your lowest rookie 40) Even if he just gets to 500k, would a 130k profit + 60 point gain be worth it?

Ja191

price is irrelevant until you trade him out which will end up costing you 2 trades though

I would like everyone's opinions on who they think the top 6 forwards we going to be.

I'm thinking of picking up gray or Walters this week (i know significant difference in price and breakevens) but am concerned about whether Walters is a top 6 forward.

Also should I lean towards gray because I already have fyfe and mundy? (Don't care about byes cause going for league)

Cheers in advance

Jack
Guest
Jack

If byes don't matter I'd go Walters cos he is cheaper. If I didn't have Gray I'd wait and see. He looks like he has gone back to a forward role, if he does he is still good enough to average 95ish, but I reckon Walters could do that for cheaper. As for top6 it's hard for forwards but I'd say: Must haves (ave100+) Heeney & McLean Gray a must have ONLY IF playing midfield Then I'd say any of Smith, Westhoff, Boak, Franklin, Sicily*, Darling Or if you want a cheaper more risky yet proven player then Josh Kennedy… Read more »

Ja191

Ja191

remember previous scores are irrelevant it's what they score from now on. Gray with rockey in the side will see a similar output to last year scoring poorly some weeks and some good others (played forward more). Walters averaged 100 until he got injured, absolute bargain for his price. Will finish top 6 if he doesn't get injured, lock him in.

Derek

in the injury report, it said that Walters hurt his knee in the 3rd quarter but was able to finish the game. i didn't see the game, anyone see that?

Youve convinced me boys, saves me an extra 120k can use to maybe get macrea after bye or gray in a few weeks if I still feel confident.

DavidSA
Guest
DavidSA

Best case senario for Rockliff:
1) he does not get injured
2) he stays in the midfield
3) Ports draw gets easier so expect him to stay Mid and Gray to stay Fwd
4) averages over 105 on the run home
5) if all of the above happens he will be 550k give or take thus made you over 170k

The upside far exceeds the risk
Don't compare the risk to previous years. Pat yourselves on the back you all did not start him this year and reward yourselves with a triple bye cover player who can score way above his current price

JugHead
Guest
JugHead

Even comparing the risk to previous years, I'm fairly positive. I put a lot of weight on recent history. Last year Rocky played 20 games. Although he didnt have a fantastic average, it was his last year at brisbane and funny things happen with players who are leaving. The year buddy left the hawks, they played him way up the ground to try out gunston etc as deep forwards. But I digress….. I think a few people are remembering a couple of years previously when rocky yo-yo'd in and out with injuries, burning quite a few along the way. That… Read more »

Hehehe…this one is gonna run all week isn't it David?
I genuinely hope he does well cos I love the way he plays but I've just got too many scars.

Jughead, he had surgery on his shoulder after 2017 so I would suggest you can't regard that as ancient history. and he averaged 78 over the last 12 games of 2017.

Swans2012

Swans2012

The 78 average involved the bung shoulder though didn't it? Mid season injury? Can't quite remember

JugHead
Guest
JugHead

Yep, it will run all week…lol. Rockliff is banged up for sure, and the shoulder op no doubt had a lot to do with his preseason. But as he gets games under his belt now I think he will improve. If you believe his average last season was affected by playing injured, you have to believe he will average higher from now on if he is right. Assuming he continues to play as a mid. Incidently, this isn't necessarily a recommendation to take Rocky over Walters. Derek made a good point earlier, that Walters should finish a higher ranked forward… Read more »

Derek
Guest
Derek

even with the best case, he isn't a top 8 midfielder, therefore he should be traded out at some point.

comes back to the question i ponder a lot…. what is a trade worth?

redherringfc
Guest
redherringfc

Say we aim to increase team value by 4 million, divide by 30 trades. You end up around $135k.

But some of the increase (like decrease) is from your initial picks.

If he makes $135k, I’ll be happy.

Johnny

Depending on your cash generation and trades left come finals he could be an M9 for most if he isn’t firing properly . If he goes nuts then happy days….

Derek

walters would be a better M9 with his DPP

Marty
Guest
Marty

Totally agree with all comments and your question Derek. Is this year a little different as many rookies have made us money? We might have a little more luxury to trade Rocky in and keep him as a M9. I have weighed it up and would prefer one more week to make up my mind and jump on someone else first. Yes that might cost another 20-30k but I'm willing to take that risk.

I see alot of people trading in Walters and wonder if they really take into account that he isn't 100% and won't be until he has surgery on his PCL that he injured a month back. From personal experience having done my ACL, PCL and Meniscus it will only take 1 awkward tackle or a twist or a knock and his knee will blow up like a balloon again with the swelling that has already occured. But that's only from personal experience so just my two cents. He may be cheap but is he another trade waiting to happen. All… Read more »

He didn't have surgery did he?

SC_Sixty6
Guest
SC_Sixty6

No. That will be last resort because it would put him out for alot longer than 2 weeks.

There was damage and swelling to his PCL. I'm just waiting for it to go again like last year.

BrownlowBoy
Guest
BrownlowBoy

ah sorry my mistake.

Who are you bringing in this week?

SC_Sixty6
Guest
SC_Sixty6

This week I will be doubling down ready to upgrade in byes. I'm fine with watching rocky prove me wrong this week for not much of a price rise. He's still cheap enough so if he goes well they have all the byes at home.

JugHead
Guest
JugHead

For players in that situation, even if his knee holds together, at some point the club can decide its time for him to get the op done anyway to give him a good start for the next yeaar. Lyons has said he wants to keep getting games into the kids.

Derek
Guest
Derek

i read the injury report from the weekend and it said that he hurt his knee in the 3rd quarter, but was able to finish the game. i didn't see it, was he limping on it?

Derek
Guest
Derek

talking about knee injuries… how is Lobb's knee going?

SC_Sixty6
Guest
SC_Sixty6

Lobbs knee is no good. Good enough to play but with the injuries GWS have he's putting in. He's getting fluid constantly drained from it. No ligament damage so that's the main thing.

Keenbutclueless
Guest
Keenbutclueless

Interesting for me was that Keefe did a lot of the ruck work a couple of week’s ago. Then dropped when Patton came back. Lobb rucked and tonned up. I threw the Hail Mary and picked him up, will throw another one with Rocky. Both most likely to end badly, but goddam its more exciting than meandering along eying all these far superior teams to mine.

Ahmad rubas
Guest
Ahmad rubas

I brought him in as well mainly because I'm tight on cash tho and seemed a good value option happy he scored the ton this week and has very low ownership

SC_Sixty6
Guest
SC_Sixty6

He was fine. He did repeat efforts and lost so starting limping….the ball came back quick and he was running again.

DavidSA
Guest
DavidSA

That shows he is mindful of it off the ball but when involved in the play that footy brain kicks in. This will be a defining moment this season. 1) he breaks down again and we all say "see" or 2) he run home 110+ and we all say "gee" lol

SC_Sixty6

😂 I too may forget and forgive a few community members……in time. In meantime I will provide to the community. Take on board what you will!

prizza
Guest
prizza

So you dont have sony, lol , he is slightly built which is an advantage, a good healer as well proven in the past which is an advantage, he will cop his fair share because now in the mids and he has got lets say a bit of mongrel in him and open to big hits but , i already have him and i can take his high ceiling every couple of weeks even if it means looping.
Stay away from him lol.

SC_Sixty6
Guest
SC_Sixty6

I hope for your sake he stays on the park. But he went down like he was shot on an awkward twist with someone just holding him last time.

seen_burns
Guest
seen_burns

I agree, feel like he is a bit to fragile especially playing more midfield minutes, may drop off or get another injury later in the year, also having the Rd 14 bye is killer for my team. Even though he is dripping of value, I'll pass and get someone like a Westhoff.

BlueBoy
Guest
BlueBoy

What are Mirra's chances of getting another game this week?

Have Murphy and Keeffe on bench so I might have to think about cover…

Derek
Guest
Derek

i thought he had a poor game last week, didn't have the height against WCE. But somehow managed a decent SC score. Port is a better match up for him and i expect him to hold his place.

BlueBoy
Guest

Thanks Derek. I didn't get to see the game. Hoping he plays until his bye.

theRealPod
Guest
theRealPod

He did look out of place early in that WC game but did improve. He's a work in progress and I think he'll keep his spot for now. Frawley listed as a test with his shoulder and Birch 4 weeks away (has that list been updated?)

Sc_Wow
Guest
Sc_Wow

Had another look at the rocky situation. Not going to risk it

Doc
Guest
Doc

Reasoning? Too injury prone for you or do you have some contacts at Port with the inside scoop?

Sc_Wow
Guest
Sc_Wow

Lack of trades if he does get injured. I rather just bring in a premo mid this week instead

JugHead
Guest
JugHead

Despite me pumping up Rocky, I wouldn't blame anyone for that point of view either. I hate bringing in stepping stone players.
IF I bring in Rocky, its to keep him, and to be honest, I'd prefer a dpp M9.

Doc
Guest
Doc

Fair bump. I'll be looking at trading in Treloar or Gaff after their byes anyway so he'll be what I hope is a decent M9 looper. Then again though not trading him in is probably beneficial to you because you are ranked so high and are aiming to be higher

Sc_Wow
Guest
Sc_Wow

Yeah they both seem like solid options

DavidSA
Guest
DavidSA

Seems like a lot doing a 180 on him
Community strategy or as the week gets closer peeps letting the history of burn from him settle in.

I know it's different in your situation… you have to consider how many will jump on him who are ranked in the top 1k
Would be more benificial for you to pass on him I think

Rockliff is a great selection for those who are struggling with byes and can foresee that they are struggling to get full premo

Sc_Wow
Guest
Sc_Wow

Yep if I pass on him I can get smith and a legitimate premo midefeilder to finish my 8

DavidSA
Guest
DavidSA

if I was in your possition I would not fluff around and go hard bro
Hope you finish top 3 👍

Sc_Wow
Guest
Sc_Wow

Cheers mate, keen to see where I am at after byes. Feel like my structure is good

Whatyasmokin
Guest
Whatyasmokin

Flipside to the struggling to get full premo reasoning is that Rocky could just guarantee that failure for many. Better off just continuing to paint the fence with reliable premos. I see Rocky as a bonus option for those doing well and could even be their M10.

Sc_Wow
Guest
Sc_Wow

I think he’s going two ways, people using him as a luxury player in the byes, which is fine if you have plenty of trades, and plan to still have plenty of trades afterwards.

However I think there are just as many out there that are running low on cash and see rocky as a bargain m8, this is too big of a risk for me.
If you have plenty of cover in your byes the trade to rocky may not be necessary as we have seen a lot of rookies who can pump out 100’s this year

Crowboy94

Derek

Rocky is for those who are short on cash and ready to throw their ‘hail Marry’ for the season.

Short on cash he is a good option

Moosehead
Guest
Moosehead

Yes Derek, I’m short on cash and The Roc is too risky for me, then again, I probably don’t take enough risks. Now resigned to just playing for leagues after getting off to the best start I have had in eight years of playing SC. Injuries to key players and also traded out Nank for expensive Grundy a couple of weeks ago when I figured he would be a late out but no, Nank scored 115.

I’m taking a punt of Tim Kelly to turn his form around after his 10 possession last quarter. If he fails, out he goes. Anyone else doing likewise?

Sc_Wow
Guest
Sc_Wow

Traded him last week, he's a rookie who is now losing cash

theRealPod
Guest
theRealPod

If he loses 20k-25k won't be that bad. If he can regain his early form it would be a brilliant move and will become a POD as a bonus. You could then trade him out before round 14 when Cats have their bye.

Beezneez
Guest
Beezneez

Forced to keep him on account of other trades. That also rules out a trade to Walters and I didn't want to trade him to a rookie. I read that he may be playing sore. Think his game time was reduced early. He's too good a player to dismiss atm for me. Will reconsider after this round.

DacZawson
Guest
DacZawson

I believe that he's had a slight role change, causing him to be at less centre bounces than he was in the first few weeks where he tonned up. Cats still experimenting with their mid/fwd mix given their plethora of options but for the moment I'd be giving Kelly the flick.

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

I'm just going Kelly to Smith this week so far, and to cash up before Kelly loses much more cash.

Marty

Does he have a different role? Done a great job for everyone but think you need to listen to him mooooooooooing and hit the trade button

JohnDJ59

I was going to trade Kelly out last week, but had problems in defence, he has now been traded to Rice, plus I needed some cash after two upgrades last weekend.

15 trades left 330k in the bank

Thanks in advance

Sam_01
Guest
Sam_01

Need to fix up your backline next week or you will cop a few 0s in first bye potentially mirra to Hurley if he is back next week? Or hope you can gather some playing rookies
Also second bye you cop a double 0 in the ruck and your fwd you will have 2 0’s with current structure look to trade fristch in the coming weeks could go fristch to yeo after his bye via sicily swing then when you upgrade mirra you can grab a backman or swing Sicily back to finnish defence and grab a fwd

SC_Sixty6
Guest
SC_Sixty6

I would trade Henry and ZGL swing Walters fwd and get Smith up fwd then get an Uber premo in mid to finish it off!

Steeeve
Guest
Steeeve

I'm bringing in Smith for Dom Barry.

Then can't decide whether to bring in Walters for Petracca or Rice for Naughton.

If I choose not to take Rice or Ridley, I will be hoping Heron and Austin are worth picking up the week after for a defensive double downgrade.

Dice_real
Guest
Dice_real

I wouldn't miss Walters at this price

Steeeve
Guest
Steeeve

That's how I feel.
I have Petracca and Charlie Curnow (who has not exceeded 86 since I brought him in after round 2) so Walters is going to help me cut a fake premo.

Hope those defence rookies perform well again next week.

Would you trade out Petracca (352k be45) or Curnow (402k be103)?

Dice_real
Guest
Dice_real

I'm keeping Petracca till his round 13 bye then gonna trade his arse, All goes to plan he's my last upgrade, the last 2 weeks he's been ok.
Depends on your coin, if struggling give Charles the flick with that b/e

Steeeve

If Naughton is back Walter's will have to wait anyway. Will play it by ear

Just a thought.
The next bye is rd 12 not rd 11 so if u are looking for coverage aka rocky you don't need him till next week.

Give him another week and reassess.
Thats the plan.

My 15 minute smoke and coffee break turned quite less pleasurable. Supercoach is simple … pick a decent team, buy low, sell high, have a strategy, and enjoy the games on the weekend. It is Grade 3 maths. Also , and here’s where I find this interesting, it’s subjective.

My 2 cents. Alot of their posts at the start of the year I didn't agree with. Mainly ones directed at the admin and writers of this site. I recall Kev copping it for rank last year, which I didn't like because I really enjoy reading his panic room article. Lek & Patch copped a bit early on (from more than these 2 tbh) for their podcast which I though was way out of line. However, to be fair of recent times their only posts which seem to be upsetting people are when people have a go at them first… Read more »

Tim Smith. Melbourne did well recruiting him. Talented player but I hope he is not injury proned like some unlucky players in years gone by. In his first year (2017) he broke his ribs after playing a couple of games then sustained a dreadful foot injury that kept him out for the rest of the year. Fingers crossed for him. Still umming and arring whether I’ll trade ZGL and grab him.

Saw this on the AFL website…not included is that Darcy Parish is also ruled out for 2 months.. In a further blow for the Bombers, a calf injury will see defender Patrick Ambrose ruled out until at least until round 14. Michael Hurley is expected to be back after missing the past two weeks with a hamstring injury as Essendon faces reigning premiers Richmond on Saturday night. Youngster Kobe Mutch is unlikely to play again this weekend after a series of headaches in recent weeks. Could mean Ridley keeps his spot for a bit longer for those who have him.

Looking at he thread of comments on trade options, it appears that trading in a mid/fwd premo is wiser. Can bring Rocky in next week if needed. Thoughts please???

Option 1: T.Kelly & Higgins to McLean & T.Smith
Option 2: T.Kelly & Garlett to Boak & T.Smith
Option 3: T.Kelly & Garlett to Walters & T.Smith

All three are good in their own way, but for quality, option 1, for not sure what to do, option 2 and for value, option 3.

Gartlet needs to go he is basically a donut won’t make any cash Higgins maybe has a tad left! You have missed out on most the post from mclean now so I reckon it’s better to jump on Walters and snag him while he is cheap he was averaging 110 at the start of the year and your gonna get him for 400k. Does depend on your bye structure though and who you thing will finnish in the top 6-10 mclean is a lock in the top 10 need to have him but Walters for mine at current valye

Rivo
Guest

Thanks Sam. Walters had a high ceiling & allows me to keep Higgins longer and have $100k heading to the byes. Would love to get McLean, but the upcoming byes mean focus on value. 👍🏽

Option 1 IMO. Every week without McLean seems to leak points. He's a pure midfielder with forward eligibility.

Curious on people’s
1.rank and trades left
2.how many premos to fill on field
3. How much cash on the bench/bank and how much is needed to finnish the team

I’m sitting 978 13 left after bringing in Walters and smith this week, was forced to trade a none playing bench rookie down to smith made minimal coin for it but I will just need blokes on the park come the byes. Have mirra and Spargo to go gonna need roughly 500k got stuff all rookie stocks on the bench need a bunch of freshies to rise

You have a team full of playing rookies do you priz? Non playing rookies become quite valuable.

And there are no words of wisdom from prizza on those posts?

After sleeping on the rocky trade I am starting to get cold feet. I had ed curnow penciled in until I started gettin sucked into the rocky hype as tempting as the bye cover & price is ed will be a much safer selection.
But still plenty of time to be swayed back to rockliff! :/

BlueBaggerJosh
Guest
BlueBaggerJosh

a lot of people leaving the rockliff thought process to a mad monday phase, ed curnow is a good pod mate, expect at least 1-2 130+ scores whilst murph is out. I'm contemplating Rockliff v Curnow as well.

SC_Sixty6
Guest
SC_Sixty6

Go Ed. Then you can sleep easy night before the game. Rocky we just don't know. You didn't put him in pre season so why now? The price? Maybe for bench cover but not a premo slot.

Skindog
Guest
Skindog

Rocky is a watch, not going to go up hugely in price this week, about $20k, if he scores above 80, but cant see him going big so if he hits the tonne again then consider,and even then id be wary AF, very risky considering how hes been, ballsy to get him in after a 90 and a 100, put on hold like those Telstra dogs do !!!

Whatyasmokin
Guest

Rocky has to be an M9 or even a donut on the bench. If you can handle those possibilities then lock him in.

Marty

I know Zuohy 'on ya boot' has been discussed last week somewhat but any love for him at 414k for an M6? Much better than putting Riddler on the field this week.

Hey Guys
Just a plodder needing some advice please on 2 options I'm foolishly considering….
1. Kelly & Holman/Langdon to Walters/Rocky & Smith, or
2. Kelly and Holman to Walters & Rocky?? (using ~ 130K cash reserves)
Thanks for any advice

TOPHAWK1
Guest
TOPHAWK1

Hi George.

These are not foolish options my friend.

Option 1 combo is my pick. Kelly and Langdon to Rocky and Walters would be ideal. But looks like you will fall short cash wise.

Save a trade and just punt Kelly to Rocky.

Or, perhaps use that second trade to go Langdon to Smith. Walters will have to wait. Good luck mate!

JugHead

I'll be keeping Holman through the byes. Very good bye cover and has a BE of 12. Can squeeze a bit more cash out of him with luck.

Coaches who have 16+ trades at this point of the season and are playing for rank, like me, Rockliff is a no brainer. He has had a week off, his form and confidence is building, and with him playing throughout the byes, you have to be mentally defunct not to trade him in.

Like Lek said, it's a free hit!

If you are down to 12 trades or less, than you might want to look at other options. Just my take of course.

Guys like SC Wow and 66 might be running light on trades?.. 🙂

Doc
Guest
Doc

I think they are down on trades but they're also 2-3 (correct me if I'm wrong) players off full premo by trading hard and obviously getting lucky with a few starting players as well

TOPHAWK1
Guest
TOPHAWK1

No doubt Doc. They have had a good run with their starting side, had few injuries, suspensions, and have traded hard early in the season to get to their respective rankings. I am 4 short of full premo, with 17 trades and bringing in Rocky this week.

Doc
Guest
Doc

I'm in pretty much the same boat Toppa but have 5 rookies to that are yet to become premos.

SC_Sixty6
Guest

Nice insight TH!

Good for you that you're grabbing rocky. We were in your position 3 weeks ago in terms of premos so had rocky been available back then I would have got him like you are now. But as we are further progressed and now only 2 off full premo it's a different story.

Rocky isn't a keeper, only cover for byes and bench. So goodluck.

TOPHAWK1

Hey buddy. I have a mate who is ranked 96 this week and is considering bringing in Tom Rockliff. He is 2-3 off full premo and is ranked higher than you and Wowser combined.

Sc_Wow

Congratulations to your mate. I back my bye plans, maybe he works out for you two though <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😊" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f60a.svg"&gt;

I just had quick look at their team and it probably would be a good idea for them to bring in rocky as they have a number of non playing rookies so cash generation might be difficult, so a smart move on their behalf

SC_Sixty6
Guest
SC_Sixty6

Tell your mate great work from me!

Maybe you can ask him for some advice seeing as he whoopin yo ass. Haha. Na it's a long season. But when he has Styles, Cameron, Keefe, Frampton, Worpel, Barry and Ratugolea…..no doubt his only option is to bring in rocky and he will stay at 2 premo to go as that is 0 cash generation.

He has had a VERY lucky run boy o boy wowee

Sc_Wow

Cmon mate, as one of the respected members of this site surley you can post something constructive without having to have a dig at 66 and I for cheap likes.

Is SPP even worth considering as an alternative to Rocky who I wont touch Both 373k both mids both have a high ceiling both have recent tons both play for the Power but only one doesn't have a need for sticky tape Surley SPP has to be considered as a mighty M8/9 cheers boys great stuff NDD

I have enjoyed your comments (And advice) Tophawk. I have 16 trades, but now playing for leagues after a terrific start but still five off full squad and of course one needs 6-8 trades for the inevitable injuries, and I have had my fair share this year. I traded Buddy out when I heard he had a heel problem because they are a bugger of an injury to shake off. I have one spot left in my mids and won’t be getting Macrae because he is too expensive for me now. I am tempted to give Tim Kelly another week… Read more »

Hi Claire, Glad you are doing great in your leagues. I had a shocker this week! Won only one and had a draw in another out of the 10 leagues I am in this week. But as we know, a week is a long time in footy. I reckon that Kelly has to go. He has that nasty round 14 bye, and is now in freefall in losing cash. He just dropped $28K this week and has a BE of 136 going into round 11. (Could drop another $20K next week) Kelly to Rockliff for me! Rocky will play through… Read more »

Hmm. The advice has got me pondering. Firstly, I’m not going great in my four leagues but hopefully I will improve. I think? I’ll put Heeney in the mid for my last mid spot and when I get some dosh in say four weeks I’ll move him back fwd. When I get Josh Kelly, a guy I like watching and who I traded out when I discovered he had OP. This will enable me to get Buddy this week because he is my favourite player.

Hi Clare amazingly I agree with all you said Macrae too dear, I traded buddy and will get him back Kelly worth another week too good a player not to,but with 5 left you may have to consider keeping Kelly longer especially with 16 trades. I don't trust those players with injury concerns Lids, Ablett, Rocky that's why I am leaning towards SPP (power-pepper) He has a b.e of 17 coming off 128 and a great game at that ,and goes up 40 k next 2 weeks .No brainer to me .Good luck for the rest of the year Claire… Read more »

Your thoughts and ideas would be most welcome community. Cheers

Higgins and Brayshaw out Tim Smith and Walters in, Walters can hold a midfield spot until a reshuffle later on.

Both rookies I mention have made their cash, and Walters an absolute bargain considering scoring potential. Smith might be the last must have rookie this season.

Henry will score 50s for 4 weeks and drop the occasional ton. Fritsch is the last person I am looking at upgrading, if he keeps up his 80-90 scores he is a great on field option and will make some more coin. I'm personally also getting rid of henry this week.
