Round 11 SuperCoach Panic Room

Published by Patch on

Wow! I like these bye round thingy’s

(do do do do, do, do do, dooooo)

My highest score for the year paled in comparison to some absolutely monster efforts over the weekend. A few 2600+ scores were doing the rounds on Twitter. Our own cheat sheet extraordinaire, Damo, is now breathing down Patch’s neck challenging him for office supremacy. Patch doesn’t like this, not at all, and has “promoted” Damo to the basement where he’ll be “head bee guy” for the week.

We’re back to normal proceedings this week with all 18 teams lining up before the storm takes hold. Before you go looking into trading in your Gaff’s, Simpson’s, McLean’s etc this week, players from Carlton, Hawthorn, West Coast, and Western Bulldogs have the week off next week. Check your team balance to make sure you’re not setting yourself up for disaster.

We’re in the awkward position this week of having rookies, fallen premo’s and post-bye players to target and there’s not enough trades to do what we want. Whack in the earbuds and let Lek and Patch unpack our options this week in the podcast. Barron once again provides us with awesome rookie analysis in the around the grounds article. Captain McCaptainface is still alive (???) for some reason and Damo gives us his first post bye cheat sheet right here.

THE NEWS

More Friday night gold this week as Carlton will once again grace our screens. In the lead up to this match the big news was the return of Jack Silvagni, which should give you an idea of the excitement levels surrounding this match. The Swans are giving Tom Papley a rest and leaving out Tom McCartin for Gary Rohan and Nic Newman. Harry McKay is the one to make way for Silvagni.

The Dees will go in unchanged tomorrow against the Dogs, who are welcoming back Dale Morris. Dave Mirra is out again for Hawthorn’s match against Port, as is Mitch Lewis. Port have named an unchanged lineup after returning from China. The Suns have done the opposite and gone bang! Jack Martin, Tom Lynch, and Sam Day will come in to the side. As will Will Brodie! (MID – 187.7k) I guarantee you had this guy in your preseason team so we get a few weeks to look at him before jumping on. Jarryd Lyons is one of the more higher profile names to make way, and bad news if you jumped on Brayden Crossley, he’s been omitted. The Cats have named the man with all the hair, Wylie Buzza, as Esava’s replacement. Lachie Fogarty gets another go. Luke Shuey is back for the Eagles but they’ve given Dom Sheed a rest for their game against the Saints. I wondered what all the expletives coming from Patch’s office were about, he’s been on the blower again to Richo to give his boy Rowan “My boat” Marshall another crack. Luke Dunstan is out injured. Michael Hurley is in for the Dons and Dylan Grimes for the Tiges for the Dreamtime at the G game.

Big news on Sunday, Paul Ahern (MID / FWD – 123.9k) will play! I’ve been tracking this guy since he was drafted in 1924 or whatever, the bloke has had a terrible run with injury and if he has any sense he’ll wrap himself in cotton wool until game day. There’s also a possible debut for Tom Murphy (DEF / MID – 124.9k). Ryan Clarke is their only confirmed out. For the Lions, they’ve added some names that are pretty meh, Matt Eagles is out. Jeremy Howe is out injured and my team is in disarray as the Pies host Freo, a lot of us are feeling it!

The Pies have lost Ben Reid and Travis Varcoe as well to injury. Brody Mihocek (DEF – 102.4k) has been confirmed to debut by Bucks. If he plays next week the Pies have the round 13 bye, he could be a perfect round 14 downgrade option. Sam Murray is on an extended bench. Michael Apeness and Scott Jones (RUC – 117.3k) have been named by Ross to cover the loss of Sandi. Taylin Duman has been named on field and Mitchell Crowden on an extended bench. Stefan Giro (MID – 102.4k) gets named on an extended bench for the second consecutive week. The Seed is back for the Crows and Lachie Murphy is on an extended bench for the last games of the round. The Giants have named two new faces; Sam Taylor (DEF – 117.3k) and Brent Daniels (FWD / MID – 117.3k). Tim Mohr is the only confirmed out.

THE HOUSE OF EVIL

Tim Smith has a frankly ridiculous breakeven of -118 this week. He’s going to make bucketloads of cash very, very quickly. If you want him, move this week because he’ll be around the 200k mark after this weekend. Elsewhere we’ve got Ridley and Rice as defensive downgrade options. A few backline injuries at the Bombers has strengthened Ridley’s job security, but I don’t see an awful lot between the two so it may come down to a bye structure as to who suits you best. 

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

-118 – Tim Smith*

-51 – Jordan Ridley*

-49 – Bailey Rice*

-5 – Pat Kerr*

19 – Dylan Buckley

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

172 – Luke Shuey

170 – Bont

164 – Gaz

160 – Maxwell Gawndog

157 – Jackson Macrae

154 – Clayton Oliver

154 – Josh Kelly

151 – Lachie Neale

149 – Michael Hurley

147 – James Sicily

136 – Tim Kelly

SMOOTH KEVY’S LOCK OF THE WEEK

The percentage play this week is to target Port and Gold Coast players coming off their bye. Gold Coast don’t have anyone averaging north of 100 points this year. Aaron Hall has scored 110 and 137 in his past two games and could be a sneaky POD, but his mid-only status kinda puts me off that idea.

Port have a few more solid targets. Robert the Gray is averaging 110 this year but his breakeven of 136 this week means you can potentially wait a week or two. Just about every SuperCoacher in the land has a “I got burned by Tom Rockliff” story, he’s not a bad pick, but Damo had some good advice on him in this weeks cheat sheet. “Don’t let him complete your midfield”.

That leaves The Hoff. Boasting MID / FWD status this year, Westhoff is averaging 107 this year with two games of 140+ and no score under 82. Paddy Ryder continues to be managed with his Achilles injury. Excluding the round 1 game when Ryder was hurt, in the games they’ve played together Westhoff has scored 85, 116, and 89.

Westhoff could be a handy F6 with a high ceiling and dependable floor. Along with 3 rounds of coverage during the byes.

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR

Draftstars has a shiny new look but nothing has changed under the hood. The scoring system is still the same. You’ll need to download an app update to continue playing, the online site is good to go. Essendon v Richmond is the crown jewel of Indigenous Round, our mates at Fantasy Insider have cast their critical eye over the matchup and given us this ideal lineup:

My take:

Bit pushed for time this week so I’ll give a quick take on the game. Bachar Houli is a huge out for the Tiges, and Essendon generally struggle to contain running backs. Jayden Short, Connor Menadue, Nathan Broad, and Nick Vlastuin will need to step up and are all good plays here.

Pay up for Nank. Belly offers nothing around the ground. Hitouts to advantage count for diddly squat in Draftstars. His 119SC last week was worth just 63DS

Floggard loves a Dreamtime. His last three Dreamtime games? 99, 134, 104.

Dusty also loves this clash. His last three have been 133, 123, 107.

Essendon have let a few MID / FWD’s get off the chain this year. Josh Caddy is in great touch but on the expensive side. Shane Edwards could be worthy of a punt.

Dev Smith hasn’t scored below 91DS for 7 weeks.

Bit of backline carnage around this week so best of luck to you all. Last week before the byes begin in earnest so my advice would be set yourself up the best you can this week. Cop a donut or two.

adam

I’ve gone Higgins to Smith
And Kelly to Gaff completes my mids
Just a fwd rook and 1 in def to upgrade
Leaves 14 trades 133k
Thoughts please

SCDamien

Like it!

SC_Kev7

That’s awesome, Adam. Worst case scenario is painting the fence for your last upgrades leaving you with a full premo team and 10 trades. Great position to be in

Adam

Bloody cheers for the feed back puts me at ease
Byes look like 7. 10. 10

Oliver

Is it worth getting Fritsch out for English?

SC_Kev7

Yeah, nah. English is injured mate

Oliver

Oops, meant Smith.
Got names confused

Jack

The Smith part is good, but does it have to be Fritsch? He's got 2 more good weeks left in him

BockChoy

Some injury repairs this week… Hurn in for Mills and Walters for Deledio.

Jack

Hi Kev, good to have the room open now I can panic in the right place!
What's your thoughts on the bargains this week? Walters, Rockliff & Brayshaw?

SC_Kev7

G’day Jack. Walters the pick of the bunch for mine but comes with the crappy bye.

Prefer Rocky over Brayshaw, but I also don’t see Rocky lasting another 3 months without something on his body getting injured

Sc_Wow

Big match up this week against SW Rooster 🐓
Although Rooster has gone missing I’m sure everyone will be keen to see how his all defence rookie strategy is paying off

Any other big match ups in your leagues this week community?

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Ive got gator twice
And he has buddy tonight against the blues.
Could be errr yibbitah yibbitah thats all folks after one game.

The Ranger

I've got Hedski in the Magnificent 7 and he got 2516 last week….gulp…

Shake_n_Bake_

Ive got Hedski aswell in 2 leagues and tophawk in another. Hope they are both looking fwd to another great challenge!

hedski

Bring it on Shaker, glad I'm not holding up the bottom rungs in Cazaly this year!!!

Shake_n_Bake_

Definitely! I think its 5th v 6th!

hedski

Nice, I thought that was your team Ranger, not sure I'll squeeze out that kinda score again for a while.
Got some other doozies this week, play Shake (twice), INP, Derek's Bunnies and Defying Madness for the second week in a row (he got me by 60 points last week).
Good luck all 👍🍺

Defying_Madness

Last week was a huge week for both of us and a ripping contest.
Interested to see if my premos can back it up again.
Will be a close contest regardless
Good luck mate

hedski

You too bud, let's crack 2500 again ay?? Here's hoping.

NEIL Demons Delight

glad I don't play you NDD

hedski

You've had the wood on me for a while Neil, we'll be at it again soon enough 👍

Lazza

I thought I was up against you Trigga in The Rat Pack .. it’s big for me (11th), but maybe not for Trig (2nd)

Russty_

I've got Pieman, Neil, Derek twice and Tophawks. Good luck fellas, you won't need it though lol

WTFoxtrot_58

Sleeping dogs????!

BloodyFranklin

Nailed the do doos Kev. Anyone who doesn't appreciate that is basically a clam.

SC_Kev7

Spent way too much time counting out the proper amount of do’s, BF. I strive for accuracy (and Patch beats me when I make a mistake)

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Jordan "the riddler" Ridley.
Riddle me this:

If i take a heron will it help to solider on or am i more likely to lay down and have a rest?
If i like fried rice will it be fulfilling or am man with chopsticks drop fried rice and swept out door?

The Ranger

Option 3 Trigga. Def Option 3.

SC_Kev7

Have you ever had a bad fried rice experience, Trig? It’s the Bunnings sausage of Chinese food. Can’t go wrong

Defying_Madness

I am a fan of riddles

Rick Grimes

The sad thing is I now cannot bring myself to trade Billings. It's like I'm addicted to the anticipation of the slim slim chance he'll put up a half decent score. Why cant i quit you!!!!!!

Mystic_Mac

He's at Winx odds to go sub 50 against the Eagles at home tomorrow.

DacZawson

I feel the same Rick.
Although there has been no real evidence to support it, he surely must get going soon enough.
Why can't Richo just chuck him in the guts to get him going.

INPieman

Upgrade him to a rookie Rick

The Ranger

Billings – Smith. Do it Rick.

Wedge

How much is billings now? Swap to Walters

Defying_Madness

Yeah I would be upgrading him to Walters or upgrading him to T Smith

Defying_Madness

Looking for some suggestions on my current team

DEF: Yeo, Simpson, Laird, Sicily, Ryan, Finlayson (Mirra, Murphy)
MID: Fyfe, Cripps, Titch, Oliver, Cogs, Dusty, Zerret, Holman (Barry, Spargo, Phillips)
RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (Olango)
FOR: McLean, Menegola, Heeney, Smith, Fritsch, Keefe (Guelfi, Smith)

Sitting on 14 trades,10k in the bank and ranked around 4.5k.
Will be targeting the following players: Hurley, Danger, Walters and a Port player. Zerret might become Macrae after the bye depending on circumstances.
Obviously this is the week to get Walters, Finlayson will become Ridley but then the question becomes who goes up? Was set on Fritsch for most of the week but now I have started second guessing. Could get rid of one of the other donuts down back.

Cheers for any advice community.

SC_Kev7

Tough call, DM. As you’ve flagged Zerrett to make way for Macrae eventually, turn him into Walters this week and in a few weeks when Fritsch has made more cash you can DPP trade him

Defying_Madness

Merret to Macrae wasn't a guarantee though, was only going to happen if Merret doesn't improve and if Macrae drops in price. Feel like Merret has played well over the last couple of weeks. Scored the 89 last week but his low DE and clangers let him down. Also has a low BE. Will always be susceptible to the tag which is a worry though so maybe I should flick him.
Cheers Kev

smart as s

coniglio to macrae

Defying_Madness

nice joke

Sully321

what should I do with JJ?

INPieman

Get rid of him. No where near top 6. Have a look at Jonas. Bye free & consistent. Only 60k to get to him

TBone_9

I would trade him to Tuohy or paint the fence with him down to Ridley and someone else up to a premo mate

TBone_9

Hey guys, Howe out causes me issues as I only have L. Murphy and O’Connor on DEF bench. Should I

1. Trade T. Kelly to Ridley via O’Connor DPP and ZGL to T. Smith (Forces me to play either E. Phillips or A. Brayshaw on field this week)

2. Trade T. Kelly to T. Smith via Spargo DPP and A. Brayshaw to Westhoff/Cripps/any mid 600k or less (Forces me to cop a donut in DEF if L. Murphy doesn’t play)

Cheers guys, sitting at about 3.5k overall and 20 trades in the kitty

SC_Kev7

Like that rank, TBone. Congrats. If you were further back I’d say cop the donut, but go option one for a full team on the park if Murphy doesn’t make the cut

prizza

Murphy named on bench, murray emergency

Johnny

Is T.smith a must? I can get 2 of boak gray rocky or the hoff n cruise through the byes If I pass on smith. But he seems good value and JS is solid. It’d be ZGL down to him

DavidC

Get Rocky and Smith this week. Can still grab the Hoff next week.

BrownlowBoy

204k in the bank. Suggested trades please.

Yeo, Laird, Sicily, Simpson, Hibberd, Doedee, Murray, Murphy
Dangerfield, Fyfe, Oliver, Mitchell, Coniglio, Heeney, T.Kelly, Higgins, Brayshaw, Phillips, Barry
Gawn, Nankervis, Olango
Gray, Smith, Walters, Billings, Fritsch, Ronke, Langdon, Spargo

Thinking Kelly and Brayshaw/Langdon to Westhoff and Smith?

Defying_Madness

Those trades sound good to me

Danners

Solid trades, could double downgrade and get rid of Kelly and Murray if you wanted to. Brayshaw/Langdon could make a bit more cash.

FearTheBeard

Field Phillips, Holman or Spargo this week? Playing my Dad so a win is a MUST lol.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Any other options??

Phillips still cash to make
Spargo good loop with fwd/mid very handy during byes
Holman had his bye. As u held him be crazy to trade him now as will be great cover 3 rds of byes.
I assume u want to bring in Smirh?.

FearTheBeard

Misreading me bud. Appreciate taking the time!

I mean who to play for M8!

Won't be trading any of them yet!

TRIGGA_HAPPY

My bad.

Holman

Sully321

thoughts on jimmy Webster?

SC_Kev7

🔒

Danners

Got him last week, racked up the ball. Not sure if he is worth the risk at $540k, would rather Lloyd if you are paying that amount of coin

Pman

Got him last week ahead of Lloyd as he is more consistent (only 2 scores under a 100) and was and was and still is a great POD being in only 4% of teams. Get him in.

DavidC

Ahern to debut.

DavidC

Jones to debut for Freo as well.

BadgerHoney7

and giro

The Ranger

Nice . Need some mid rookies.

Defying_Madness

Murphy is in!!!!

SamuraiPizzaCat

Nice. I was looking at trading Duman or Murphy to Rice or Ridley.. but might just hold off a week since they're both playing. Austin or Heron as downgrade options next week.

Alex

Burning one of Mirra or Murphy this week to bring in Ridley, should I cash in Mirra given he's not playing (despite both having low BEs)?

BadgerHoney7

murphy and duman come back in the week before I trade them out, yesssss needed extra cash.

hedski

Thanks again Kev, panic has subsided now Murphy is named, can stick to the plan.

BadgerHoney7

ok need to name on of these three – murphy, duman, appleby
and one of these three – billings, tim smith, goofy
suggestions and reasons would be greatly appreciated

MEK

Billings and Murphy

BadgerHoney7

or two of billings, tim smith, goofy, fritsch

JohnDJ59

Fritsch and Smith.

KSinny

Billings and Guelfi or Smith

KSinny

Who do I trade in for Kelly this week? I can afford any Mid or Fwd using DPP

MEK

Gaff POD

Pman

Danger for me.

Jacob

Depends who you dont have… id be going the best averaging mid that you dont currently have

KSinny

Ended up going Danger

theRealPod

Good move. He loves playing Suns avg is high around 120 and has just hit some decent form. Might be worth chucking the VC or C on him.

Lazza

I can’t decide between Gray (likely to be cheaper next week) and Dusty (bottomed out)

Russty_

Not Cripps.

MEK

Should i go Coffield to Rice or J Higgins to Rice and then
Should i go Giles Langdon to Boak or Westhoff or Walters or someone OR
Should i do Fristch Instead to Westhoff or Boak OR Last option
Giles Langdon or Fristch to T Smith

Alferton

Thoughts please
Option 1: Fritsch to Walters
Option 2: Billings to Walters
Option 3: Fritsch to Boak
Option 4: Billings to Boak.

Thank you

KSinny

Billings to Walter's but I wouldn't do any of those

seen_burns

I'm going Henry to Smith & Billings to Walters

JohnDJ59

As long as Billings gets traded.

Marty

Glad I got the ins and outs wrong for the Crows. Murphy owners rejoice! I wonder who kept him? Let's hope he has a blinder for ca$h generation.

DavidSA

Reversed my trades put it that way

Eddy

Is Walters a good player to bring in this week? (What are his pros and cons)

For people that aren't bringing him in, what is their reason for doing so?

Jack

Pro's
* will play midfield in a team that doesn't have much midfield depth
*If fit should average close to 100

Cons:
*Had a knee injury that will probably be ongoing all season

I was all over him up until 24 hrs ago, but now I'm worried that Freo won't make the 8 so might send him away early (during SC finals) to have surgery on his knee so he can start pre season with team
I'm taking Buddy instead. Understand he has his injury concerns too but his team is in the 8

Danners

Good player to bring in, just double downgrading this week myself. Will see how he goes this week. If he scores around 90, only goes up about $25k.

Dogsdik

I reckon he will be a top 6 fwd. Had him, traded him when he did his knee. Brought him back in this week, low break even. Risk, but scores well when going through the mids.

Loop

Awesome player.
Reasons I cant bring him in – his knee and bye.

theRealPod

Agree with Loop.

Matty Humphreys

Such a tough week for trades I'm torn between
Walters/Smith for Langdon/Kelly (336k in bank) or
Fyfe/Smith for wallis/Kelly (118k in bank)
Is getting fyfe a must, will end up costing me an extra one or 2 trades in long run will have 13 trades left after 2 this week.

MEK

2 option

Clarky

Who do we reckon is more likely to get a game throughout the byes, Barry or Findlayson? Other will be culled this week

MEK

FInny

Banga

JJK or Rocky a higher priority this week? JJK playing saints so should go off but he also has the bye next week

MEK

JJK IS strugling

KSinny

Rockliff

Danners

Looks like there is a changing of the guard at the Eagles, so Rocky he is not necessarily a priority though

MEK

Should i go Coffield to Rice or J Higgins to Rice and then
Should i go Giles Langdon to Boak or Westhoff or Walters or someone OR
Should i do Fristch Instead to Westhoff or Boak OR Last option
Giles Langdon or Fristch to T Smith

BlueBoy

Hi guys,

Laird, Sicily, Simpson, Ryan, Lloyd, Murphy (Mirra, Keeffe)

Macrae, Fyfe, Oliver, Mitchell, Cripps, Neale, Coniglio, T.Kelly (Holman, Phillips, Barry)

Gawn, Naitanui (Olango)

McLean, Smith, Walters, Heeney, Hogan, Fritsch, (Guelfi, Spargo)

$47k in the bank

Possible trades
T. Kelly > Danger
T. Fritsch > Smith

Kelly > Smith (via Spargo)
Spargo > Yeo (via Keeffe and Walters)

I guess my question is, will Yeo and Fritsch score more than than Danger and Murphy?

Matty Humphreys

Current team
Hurley Simpson Tuohy Richards doedee Ridley (duman Keefe)
Macrae danger Mitchell Olivier bont jpk dusty Kelly (Holman, Barry, spargo)
Grundy gawn (English)
McLean heeney mundy boak Wallis fitsch (Langdon Henry)

15 trades left thinking this week either
Walter/Smith for Langdon/Kelly leaving 336k in bank or
Fyfe/Smith for wallis/Kelly

Gonna be trading down one maybe two next week to bring in yep an Sicily into backline after there bye rounds

Matty Humphreys

Yeo*

Noah

Should i get mclean this week and pass walters this week?

Hamma

Thoughts on these trades

Higgins and Kelly to Walters and Smith

Ashh

Higgins or Spargo or Phillips on field?

Jeff

Am thinking of bringing in Smith and one of Jonas, Rockliff or Walters for Kelly and Venables.

I'm leaning towards a defender as Howe being injured could cause a donut and Jonas in particular as he will help during the byes.

If Lachlan Murphy plays though, then I'll probably go with rocky as the value there could be insane. BUT I could also swing Spargo into the mids and bring in Walters instead.

Any suggestions? When are the sunday teams confirmed?

TOPHAWK1

Murphy is playing so I can leave Howe on the bench and still have 6 onfield back there now. I am going Kelly to Rocky. He is improving with every week that passes. It has taken him some time to find his new role at Port Adelaide, and should be nice and fresh after his bye. A player with a ceiling of 200 which is priced at $374K is incredible value. If he stays fit, I am confident he will be pumping out tonnes again. If he breaks down, well it wont ruin my season by any stretch. The upside is just huge!

Pat

Is Walters a must get this week?

FearTheBeard

Lads seriously need some fast opinions! Got a mate getting me for baby head wetting in 45 mins!

Murphy named has stumped me.

Playing my Dad this weekend. MUST WIN!

Yeo on field or Murphy

Walters or Smith

Basically I'm either getting Yeo in this week meaning Murphy is an emergency.

OR

Walters on field and Smith sits on bench. The Demons smith I mean to be clear too!

I'm leaning towards Yeo & Smith over Murphy & Walters?

KSinny

Yeo and Smith seems much safer

MEK

YEO A GUN

David

Walters or Buddy

TOPHAWK1

Walters. Buddy too inconsistent.

CalebCripps922

Ridley or Rice?

TOPHAWK1

Ridley slightly ahead of Rice IMO. With Coffield and Carlisle to return, he could be dropped. Ridley appears to have better JS, and has kept his place even with Hurley back this week. Rice has the nasty round 14 bye whilst Ridley has his bye in round 13. Good luck mate.

Jacob

I actually think rice has better job security. I think ridley will be lucky to stay in the team too much longer

Doc

Even with Ambrose out?

Tiger

Who in your opinion who has the best security ? Ridley, Rice, Heron or Logan. Don't care about the byes. I Can wait till next week for Heron or Logan as I'm trading out Murray and don't think he'll play even though he's an emergency. Thanks for your thoughts, cheers.

Ja191

rice

TheGreatBozza

Hurley / Simpson / Yeo / Brayshaw…best option?

I’m forced to get a back so I don’t have to play one of Richards or Murphy on field

Ja191

toss up between yeo and simmo i'd prob go simmo, both will be top 6

Jacob

Id go yeo mate. Not much difference between him and simpson though!

Jeff

Except $50k

TheGreatBozza

Thanks fellas. Going simmo

Pman

Just about my whole squad is playing this week which is a nice change but it's stuffed up my planned Gawn VC into Grundy Captain option as I have no players I can now loophole other than Garlett and Barry who play before or at the same time that Gawn plays. I will make Cripps VC tonight but I'm stumped who to put the C on, Gawn or Grundy? Max is killing it this year but with no Sandilands playing Grundy could go massive against Freo. Who do the community think is a safer bet for Captain?

Jacob

In the same boat mate, i reckon gawn goes big this week against the dogs. Hope so anyway!

Russty_

Dogs don't really have a Ruckman either so 50-50 call really, I'm going Grundy just on form.

JohnDJ59

I really hope you didn't VC Cripps.

Pman

Thankfully I dodged that bullet by reversing my trades and traded Barry rather than Crowden who I can now loophole as he is in on Freo's Emergency List for Sunday. Gawn into Grundy now!

Russty_

Good plan Pman

JohnDJ59

I'm going Danger into Grundy. Happy to just watch big Max doing well without the pressure of VC.

Leon

Call me crazy but I have 545k in bank and wanna go ZGL to Tsmith and naughton to Ridley (got rice last week)
I’d have 800k for a triple upgrade next week giving me one more look at westhoff and rocky and even gray and hall if my plums allow to do so. I’m only playing leagues I’m Ranked 9500 . 18 trades left and 6 from premo

Jacob

You're crazy! pick up smith and do an upgrade mate, too much cash to leave in the bank, i dont really rate ridley as a must have!

Jacob

Fml duman and murphy in this week means i cant loop vc/c. Im thinking i captain gawn but would love others thoughts. Fyfe, danger, gawn, titch, dusty or cripps???

Jacob

Feedback would be greatly appreciated!!

Jeff

I think Gawn might go big. He'd be my pick of that bunch

Jacob

Cheers mate! Appreciate it!

BadgerHoney7

who is your ruck bench?

JohnDJ59

Danger into Fyfe ?

The King

I'm going Danger VC, Fyfe C

Jacob

Need to field 1 out of holman, phillips, t.smith, spargo or guelfi… thoughts community?? Cheers

DavidSA

Smith

Jacob

Thats who i have on currently, just think it might be too risky cos hes only played the 2 games. Hate not being able to loophole!!

Jeff

Yeah mate I know that pain. That's why I've kept O Connor and Venables all year

Jacob

Smart jeff, wish id kept venables now haha!

Jeff

I'm a bit behind the pack on getting to full premo with still two more down back, two mids and two forwards still to get with 17 trades left. Should I still be looking at Rocky this week? Or should I bring in Yeo/Jonas or Walters/Westhoff instead?

Jacob

The hoff would be handy for the byes if you are keen on him. But i think yeo is your man if you want a defender!

HumanBob

I really like most of this years Doug Nicholls round Jumpers. Finally starting to move away from the dot art style that was only ever in central and western desert country and starting to represent the art and culture of other regions as well as embracing a modern art style. Well done to everybody involved.
As a Victorian '3-Rivers Country' resident the Saints, Blues and Pies jumpers move me.

Valens_FC

Nice one Bob. Hear hear 👍

Boris_Baconbeer

Went against my golden rule of never picking up Collingwood players, because they are bad luck for me, last week. Traded in Howe. So now it is either.
Howe and Aquaman to Walters and Rocky Means great team for first two bye rounds then need to trade two in.
or
Fitch and Aquaman to T.Smith and Rocky means bit of trading through the byes
Thoughts?

I think Howe will be out for three cos they may as well rest him next week as well

Banga

Findlayson – Gaff (152k left)

Or

Barry – rocky (179k left)

Boris_Baconbeer

if it is last spot in mid and byes are good for you already – Gaff
If getting both anyway or need to fill hole in bye – Rocky! … Also Findlayson dpp from memory so is handy (i already traded him out) and barry is useless.
Thats my guess.
