THE CHEAT SHEET Round 13

Published by Damo on

Hey look! More teams that we can select players from without worrying about the bye! Hooray!
Now listen, I know I have made an arse of myself in some of these little blurbs, but please forgive me. I had to conjure this up in no time flat before the AFL has decided thatΒ Thursdaynight games are good for…what are they good for…oh yes, TV ratings.
The AFL love their TV ratings, but that rant is for another time perhaps.
Moving on from that, I caution you against Ollie Wines because he scored 142 without you, and you’re not going to get it back. You can try but I’m pretty sure it left with my sanity. Except my sanity left a long time ago. Who am I? Nobody knows anymore. Where am I? I wish I knew.
I’m losing my mind, because these bye rounds are hard.
They’ve done studies, you know. 60% of the time, we forget about Ed Curnow every time, and we shouldn’t do that because he is going very well this year and is on track to be a top 10 midfielder.
Matthew Kreuzer is back and going beautifully for the Blues after a bumpy start, and Hawthorn forward Jack Gunston is as reliable as ever for our forward lines this year.
Without further ado, the Cheat Sheet everyone!

Ripping stuff Damo xoxo

ALSO, while I'm here – Thursday night teams!

So much for Matt Suckling as a smokie, and Tom Jonas you son of a-

PORT ADELAIDE

In: T.Marshall, L.Thomas, J.Hombsch
Out: J.Watts, J.Neade, T.Jonas (hamstring)

WESTERN BULLDOGS

In: Z.Cordy, M.Wallis, L.Webb, S.Biggs
Out: M.Suckling (injured), D.Morris (injured), T.Dickson (injured), J.Roughead

SC_Kev7

$20 on Sniper Thomas to shirt front Wines within 5 minutes

Finnius

aren't they on the same team kev?

SC_Kev7

Just as likely to go after a teammate, Finnius!

Cpt

He’s a dog!

Although Talented and prone to ducking.

Nick

My plan was to trade Goldstein to Naitanui or Kreuzer this round, now that Goldys got 4 tons in a row should I hold off on the trade and maybe just get Grundy later? Obviously already have Gawn

Steeeve

I'm keeping Goldy. His last few rounds are tantalising. Finals time.

TBone_9

Hey guys, looking to get rid of Nank. He’s done his job up to this point so I can either grab Kreuz this week as a differential, grab Stef next week and let Nank bleed some cash or grab Grundy next week for overs. Cheers πŸ™‚

Lazza

I’m thinking similar Nank to Nic Nat.. but reconsidering my options .. may go Gawn to Nic Nat keep Nank for a week then trade him to either Grundy or Kreuzer..
gives me two on the park each week but will leak $$… dilemma or dill

TBone_9

Gday Lazza, I like the Nank to Nic Nat move, considering him too! But wouldn’t even consider trading Gawn. How many trades do you have left mate?

Josh

I have 12 trades left, 82k in the bank.
Will have19 playing this week, 18 if Duman isn't picked. Do I trade Fritsch to JJK, or hold for a week. I will probably need to make 2 trades next week. Any advice is much appreciated.

SC_Kev7

You could probably squeeze a bit more cash out of of Fritsch but JJK's b.e is 40 this week. You'll be paying more for JJK if you do the trade next week. I'd pull the trigger, Josh

TOPHAWK1

Nice cheat sheet Damo! You are right about Giro being the most attractive rook this week.

Are coaches considering culling a ripe rook and bringing in Giro this week to raise some fast cash? I am seriously considering it especially if fattened rooks like Murphy or Ronke are omitted. I also have Guelfi and ZGL. Those two still have some cash to make. Then next week, I will have plenty of coin to grab another two premos to be virtually full premo with 9 trades left. What are others doing?

BrownlowBoy

Murray, Langdon, Spargo for Giro, McLean and Gaff

TOPHAWK1

Nice BB!

How about this little trio combo?

OUT- Toby Nankervis, Michael Hibberd, Nick Holman.
IN- Mathew Kreuzer, Chad Wingard, Will Brodie.

Warchest grows to $210K for two big upgrades next week.

BrownlowBoy

I like it. I'm holding Nank because I think he should score well verse Geelong.

SC_Kev7

The Chad burns never healed for me, Hawk. Bloody gun when Ken chucks him in the middle but he doesn't do it often enough. Like the Nank to Kruze trade though

Sc_Wow

To be honest if I’d held hib all this time I’d want to treat myself to something a little better than chad

Cpt

Traded in Simpson (too good to ignore and BE low) and Westhoff (will ton up against my Doggies.

Holman, Doedee, Fritsch gone next week for Gaff, McDonald and Josh Kelly (Simi POD).

Josh

Why are you calling them fat? leave them alone, what did they do to you? FATTY

Rivo

Hibberd, Fritsch (yes it hurts) & Henry to Simpson, Gray & Giro.

Will get me one off full premo & maybe dealing with Petracca next week.

dontblushbaby

Captain VC – some might go Gray tomorrow night, but any one got the balls to go Rocky ? Well have ya ?

I suspect Fyfe into Mitchell will be the most popular imo over the week ?

Noah

Should i trade Walters, Fritch and Guelfi for Ed Curnow, Shannon Hurn and Ahern – leaves me with 10 trades and 1 till full premo?

Cpt

Yep! Good scorer and Rookie the coach likes + DPP

NoLanguage

Why would you trade Walters?

HeathLegend

Hey lads. Curre team as follows with 187k in the bank and 10 trades remaining.

Lloyd Laird Ryan
Simpson Doedee Rice – (Ridley Okeefe)

Danger Fyfe Titch
Duncan Cripps Oliver
Holman Banfield – (Ahearn Spargo Coniglio)

Grundy Gawn – (nuff)

Heeney McLean Gray
Fritsch Walters Fogarty (Guelfi T Smith)

I originally planned to get rid of Doedee for Sicily and Banfield to Rocky but with Walters now wanting to be Mundine for a few minutes I was thinking to go Doedee to Hurn and Walters to Sicily with Spargo being cashed out for Giro to leave me with 19 on field this round and 15 instead of 14 on field before trades next round.

Option A) keep Walters, Doedee to Sicily and Banfield to Rocky

Option B) Walters to Sicily and Doedee to Hurn

Option C) Any other suggestions? Cheers lads

SC_Kev7

G'day Heath, I like your original plan. Cuts a few R14 rookies which will help next week.

TIGESB2B

I'd keep Doedee as D6 for the time being and focus on getting in another premo fwd and/or mid b4 worrying about him. Like Spargo to Giro, Holman to J Kelly and Walters to Sicily and $100K in the bank.

TIGESB2B

* Gaff not Kelly.

TommyC99

Thoughts on Chad Wingard as an F6/7 loop? Or should I just spend the extra cash and get gray in? I only have 9 trades left after this and still got a few upgrades to go so im not sure if the Wingard risk is al that worth it, but it allows me the extra funds to make going full premo easier

Defying_Madness

I think I am doing it, I have never been burnt by him so I figured now is the time to get hurt

Chief

Thoughts on these trades:

Spargo to Giro
Murphy to Yeo

KSinny

Very nice

KSinny

Who to get for $552k? Could get either a forward or a Midfielder using DPP.

DavidSA

Not Bont is all I can say

stacey

THE BONT.

Cpt

Josh Kelly – Bang Bang

Nuggety

Gunstan? you cant be serious? Wingard much better value than the hawk….

BrownlowBoy

Look at Gunstons run home

James

Spargo to Giro and Henry to Gray, thoughts?

SC_Kev7

Like it. Forwards this week McLean is the standout if you don’t have him yet

James

Yeah I already got McLean, cheers Kev

Noah

Ahern or Giro?

HarryH76

Mature DPP v first year rookie

Defying_Madness

Both?

JEL

Giro if you need a body on the park this week.
Ahern if you don't mind him sitting out this week

jam

is De Goey going to get the midfield time to make him an option?
Do we wait on Ahern rather than go on Giro?
I have one defence spot left simpson or crisp? (have laird, hurley, webster, a brayshaw, sicily) didnt want yeo, would consider hurn though.

Sc_Wow

Yeo

NoLanguage

Hibberd – Ryan
Spargo – Giro
Fritsch – Robbie Gray

Leaves me with 10 trades, $117k & 18 onfirled (if Austin and Dusty are both named). Thoughts?

SC_Kev7

Does trading in Ryan limit your on field players for R14?

NoLanguage

Hey Kev,

Yeah it does, leaves me with 16/17 depending on whos named. Could go with Howe or another premo defender whos had their bye. Any suggestions?

NoLanguage

Cancel that Howe is having his bye this week haha

Connor

Kruezer vs Naitanui??
Comments much appreciated – not gonna be able to afford Grundy.

Connor

I would go Naitanui every day of the week if he was played 90% TOG but he's not so…

Russty_

NicNat has a nice 3 round average of 118 even with his reduced gametime.

Mystic_Mac

He's my smokey VC this week. Hoping Simmo ups his TOG now that he's got through the first half of the season unscathed.

oliverfisher

Was going to bring in Titch, JJK and Kruezer for Brayshaw, Smith and Lycett. Then next week I would go Henry to Sicily. Unfortunately, I just realised this will only leave me with 17 on the field this week. As an alternative, I can trade out Spargo instead of Brayshaw, but this will leave me with only 17 on the field next week after the Sicily trade, so I would then need to downgrade Brawshaw to someone. Alternatively, I could swap Savage to Hurley, or downgrade Rice next week. My last thought was to complete the JJK and Kruezer trades and then downgrade Fritsch to Wingard to use as my F7.

Florence Maxwell

Cool

Stupid Coach

Greetings Community. Nice work with the Cheat Sheet Damp. Agree that the only winner with Thursday night football is Channel 7. 14 trades and $169k in the bank. Initially was going to trade Spargo to Ahern until I realised he has the bye this round. So will trade Spargo to Giro (if named). Need some advice on my second trade. Should I go Guelfi/ZGL to Westoff/R Gray (leaves me around 50-80k) or trade Dunam (if not named) to Simpson.

SC_Kev7

Prefer the Simpson trade. Hoff and Gray have three figure b.e’s, not unattainable but their price won’t move heaps. Simpson’s is 70 something.

Stupid Coach

Thanks SC_Kev7. I just worked out that trading in Simpson will only leave me with $7k in the bank which could be a problem down the track with future trades (particularly next round). My other option is that I can move Sicily into defence via Keefe DPP, trade Guelfi/ZGL to Westoff or Gray and pick up Simpson next week. Unless he has an absolute blinder against Freemantle (which is a possibility) I should still be able to afford him. Thoughts???

Florence Maxwell

Yeah cheers Damp

Jace

Going to be very wet in adelaide for the game tonight, scores may not be as high as normal.

Stupid Coach

Thanks Jace. That's why I am leaning towards bringing Robbie Gray as he might do well in the wet conditions.

Mythbuster

macrae went 170 in his last wet game this year

Westy

Current team – need advice – I'm putting my bye people in brackets so to give a better indication of non bye structure
D (McDonald) Laird, Savage, (Hibberd) Austin, Murphy – Heron, (Keeffe) – This needs boosting
M Macrae (VC), Fyfe, Mitchell (C), Cripps, Martin, (Coniglio) (Merrett) Rockliff, – Holman, Higgins, (Spargo) – Not entirely happy with Martin or Merrett but brought Rockliff in at rock bottom price.
R (Gawn), Nankervis – Crossley
F Heeney, McLean, Sicily, Franklin, (D Smith) (Hogan) – Henry (Guelfi) – I'm relatively happy with the 6 starting forwards ultimately
299K in the bank 10 trades left

2 proposed trades I'm relatively solid on being
Hibberd & Spargo -> Simpson & Giro – this ends up with 318K in the bank

What is worth looking at as Trade 3 to help maximise points and round 14 cover? I was thinking Murphy to Yeo or Hurn – this seems like the obvious one, but I'm keen for other comments.

Finnius

Murphy to Yeo is perfect Westy. Don't even think about it.

Westy

Team as of now with Round 14 byes shown
D McDonald, (Laird), Simpson, Hurn, (Savage), (Austin), – Heron, Keeffe
M Macrae (VC), (Fyfe), Mitchell (C), Cripps, (Martin), Coniglio, Merrett, Rockliff, – Holman, (Higgins), Giro
R Gawn, (Nankervis) – Crossley
F (Heeney), McLean, Sicily, (Franklin), D Smith, Hogan – (Henry) Guelfi

$38K in bank
Potentially
Henry -> Ahern,
Nank -> Kreuz or similar
Holman -> upgrade – alternatively could go Holman to Ahern and Henry to JJK.

Westy

Went Hurn for POD. Silly Westy!

neil demons delight

great cheap sheet as usual Damo For me its who to get for Nank Kruze or Nic Nac NDD

Sc_Wow

Both have similar difficulties in terms of their runs home. I’d put Nic Nat slightly ahead but will be close

ATeam12345

Warning to everyone, take note of last years bye period… almost every team had a bad, bad game after having their bye.
I would hesitate on bringing anyone in after their bye. Guaranteed they'll be cheaper next week except for Kennedy who would probably break even. Unless you must have them in…

Nadonis

What are everyone’s thoughts on Gaff vs Curnow? Cannot split them….Curnow slight edge I think for his ceiling.

Simo036

Curnow for me

Naden Scarfone

Thinking the same, forgive my ignorance as I have not watched Carlton all year but does Curnow still get the odd tag job? That's the only thing stopping me…

Finnius

I'm going Gaff. I like his age and durability more. I don't like picking older players who suddenly seriously lift their output (e.g. Hurn as well), for I often don't see a sustainable reason for this. I will probs be proven wrong by Curnow, but Gaff is more of a natural talent as well, and 20k cheaper.

Nadonis99

Looks like a flip of the coin decision, I am leaning towards Gaff though…

Noah

Mclean or Hurn?

BrownlowBoy

McLean for me.

Simo036

Was tossing up same decision. Have gone for McLean as my Fwd line needs strengthening more than my Def

Nadonis99

McLean for sure

BrownlowBoy

Will people select Liam Ryan if he's named this week?

KSinny

I would've if he hadn't gone up in price

Finnius

need all the cash I can get atm. Doesn't give enough value for me.

Scoops_McYoung

I feel most rookies we bring in from now most probably won't be traded out, unless you have a significant amount of trades.

Therefore, does he provide adequate bench cover from here until the end of the year?

If he puts out two 50-60's over round 13/14, is that worth the trade?

Just my two cents.

WhySoSerious

Call me crazy but is anyone else considering Gazza?

Scoops_McYoung

Jump on and watch him miss the entire SC finals.. You know it'll happen.

BrownlowBoy

Yes

Swans2012

Bought him in last week, huge injury risk but got to admit it's fun having him back in the side

Adam

Thoughts Crew out Holman and Langdon
In Ahern and JJK
12 trades left 256 k just need 1 more premo
Defender possibly Yeo next week

Scoops_McYoung

In a good position to take the JJK risk.

Have you got cover for Ahern this week?

Scoops_McYoung

Community… Need someone to slap some sense into me!

I'm currently ranked 240 overall, with 8 trades left.

If laird is out, which looks likely, I'm going to need to pop 4 trades over the next two rounds to field 18 each week.

Is there any point going for broke during these rounds to keep pace with the top, or am I better off playing safer on the trades, fielding 16-17 over the next two weeks and hoping to come home with wind in my sails?

Team is:

Def: Laird, Lloyd, Sicily, Hurn, Brayshaw, Doedee (Ridley, Heron)
Mid: Dangerfield, Mitchell, Fyfe, Oliver, Cripps, Parker, Congilio, Menegola (Spargo, Ahern, Coffield)
Ruck: Gawn, Nankervis (Olango)
Fwd: Mclean, Heeney, Franklin, Walters, Smith, Fritsch (T.Smith, Guelfi)

BrownlowBoy

Probably a question best suited to Wow, Sixty6 or other members who play for rank.

My opinion, if you wanna go for rank, I think you have to field 18.

Scoops_McYoung

I think that's pretty spot on, unfortunately for me..

If that's the case would you trade Walters to get in someone like Gaff/Bont (or Josh Kelly next week)? Would cover byes, and with nearly full premo, provide enough cash to upgrade doedee AND fritsch.

Defying_Madness

Doedee and Fritsch will need to be upgraded eventually so I would pull the trigger.
Maybe trade out Guelfi and Fritsch this week then next week trade out Nank, Doedee and Coffield.
Might need to calculate the money available and pick your premos based on that

Scoops_McYoung

Nice, that's what I needed to hear.

Anyone a fan of going early on Joel Smith? Looks to be Lever's replacement…

Finnius

Next week yes, this week no as you need to bring in playing players. Almost worth going early on a debutant this week if named for they will defs play two weeks if nothing else… You don't need them to make cash, just play.

Scoops_McYoung

So Brander from WC could be a good choice?

Do we have any hope for t.smith to make a comeback next week? Maybe even Ridley?

Defying_Madness

I am hoping that they both play

Sc_Wow

You need to feild 18 mate, hard to make up those donuts in the run home, everyone will have strong teams

Oliver

Has anyone heard any update on Robinson from Brisbane? I saw that he is listed as 1-2 weeks away, so there might be a chance he is back after the bye?

TheGreatBozza

Any tips for the week?

DEF Simpson, Savage, Laird, Doedee, Richards, Austin, Murphy (Laird, Howe)
MID Fyfe, Muitchell, Danger, Cripps, Dusty, Holman, Higgins, E.Phillips (Kelly, Coniglio, Pendles)
R Gawn, Grundy, (Hayes)
F McLean, Sicily, Walters, Ronke, Fritsch, ZGL (D.Smith, T.Smith)

At the moment I'm thinking the following:
ZGL to Giro (swing Higgins FWD)
Murphy to Yeo (if Laird doesn't play)

That'll leave me with 15 trades left but not much bank.

Any other suggestions?

TheGreatBozza

By the way the Kelly is Josh Kelly, not Tim

BrownlowBoy

Sounds like good trades.

Gibbsanity

Is it worth bringing in McLean even though his breakeven is 140?
Petracca -> McLean

r_calve

yes

r_calve

fritsch to bont and Spargo to giro or to Brodie

Hawks

Brodie for mine

Jesse

Giro. 80k less and JS is much the same as Brodie. Will generate much the same cash by end

Sharknado

need to go early on a rookie (joel smith, ahern or redman) to generate cash for next week, I'm leaning towards smith given he played lever's role but am unsure- already going early on Giro, cheers

Hawks

Redman looked very good

FearTheBeard

Tossing this up myself.

I'm even tossing up between Redman, Smith, Battle.

Leaning towards Battle & Redman purely for maximum cash and hope they aren't needed!

Sharknado

Yeah Redman looked class, Battle played well but given his small fwd role in the team I think I want another look at him before ideally jumping on him when on the bubble

seen_burns

Hurn or Westhoff/Gray?

Hawks

Gray, he must get some mid time soon

pigjumpprusik

He's also their best fwd, Ken likes him playing their for a reason

Emily

Hi guys.
Nice cheat sheet.
I've got one trade to to get to a full team with conligio currently filling my last midfield spot.
Not sure whether to swing sicily fwd and trade tarranti to crisp in defence next week or bring in buddy or gunston this week and leave sicily back?

Team
Laird, yeo, ryan, hurley, sicily, lloyd. Austin, ridley.
Dangerfield, mitchell, fyfe, oliver, beams, crouch, cripps, coniglio. Ahern, phillips, mutch.
Gawn, naitanui. Cameron.
Heeney, mclean, smith, walters, gray, tarranto. Ronke, crowden.

Thanks for your help.

Holty01

Hell Emily. That is one fantastic looking side so early in the season. All id suggest is who in the forward or backline dont you have who will potentially average more? Some names that come to mind are
Mcdonald (still scores well when they lose)
Simpson (consistent)
Westhoff (people are talking about him but im still uncertain)
Crisp and Menegola i think will average more then they currently are come seasons end.
Just my 2 cents

Emily

Thanks holty i think mcdonald is a bit dear.
I think out of the remaining def/fwd crisp should go close to being the highest scorer of those remaining.
If i go buddy or gunston this week i can upgrade conigilo to kelly next week but that uses 3 trades.
Or of i bring in crisp next week will leave me with 6 trades remaining with conigilo at mid 8.
Is kelly that much better than congilio?

Jack

Not that much better. I'd only make a Cognlio to Kelly trade in the last 4 weeks if I had at least 3 trades left.

Holty01

Is it overall you are interested in or league finals?
Overall, get the best available you think. You need those points.
But if it is league, hold those trades and leave Coniglio at m8. Those trades are valuable come finals time. I think Kelly will score more but i honestly don't think it will be by a lot so not worth the trade imo.

Johnny

Need some advice please $550k & 16 trades.

def: Webster Hurley laird Sicily hibberd rice (naughton murphy)

Mid: Fyfe danger Oliver Mitchell dusty cognilio westhoff Holman (brayshaw spargo brayshaw)

Ruck: Gawn nicnat (olango)

Forward: heeney McLean D.smith fritsch guelfi ronke (Henry T.smith)

Would love some help..

Thinking spargo to ed curnow.

What other options round the ground do I have

redherringfc

That’s a lot of trades and cash. I say go nuts and triple upgrade.

Spargo to Curnow is good, if that’s the mid you want.

I’d also go Guelfi to Yeo, via Sicily.

Third trade, i’m not up with all your rookies breakevens, but Brayshaw from freo could go or even Fritsch and get whoever you want. You could alternatively get rid of Hibberd for Simpson or Hurn.

Johnny

I am set on curnow he is a solid pod had eyed him off for 3 weeks since his suspension. Not impressed he made his way into damos cheat sheet hahh
I think for my second I may go naughton or guelfi like u suggested up to yeo. Stuck on the 3rd though. Would be running out of cash by then. Would prefer fritsch play F6 for a week or two more yet. Maybe go ronke to ahern early keep a warchest for next week. Target kelly or treloar for final midfielder…

TheGreatBozza

Already changed my name thanks to break evens! Who to bring in?

Yeo, Hoff, JJK or Gray (not sold on Chad)

Also worth offloading Pendles > Curnow? Pendles has been sputtering of late

DavidC

Lyon has confirmed Duman playing in the WAFL.

BlueBaggerJosh

Crap, when teams come out 5:30?

DavidC

just after 6

Jesse

Rgray jjk hogan or Jeremy Cameron?
Please rank ya top options to avg the most from here on

ToughBretts

I have Cameron and he is the worst option, but while it is often infuriating, it's never boring

Dale

Gray hogan jjk Cameron in that order.

Marcus

IS anyone else considering Brodie?

Jesse

Too pricey. Stayin clear

redherringfc

He’s only played 1 hasn’t he?

If he goes really well this week, then maybe. But even then i’d probably just put it down to him playing against the Saints.

Too much money.

Ahmad rubas

I'm bringing him in. He is a little pricey but I think he plays for the rest of the season and will slowly make money but most importantly for me covers the next 2 bye rounds

Marcus

Thinking the same, Giro would be better but can’t afford another round 14 bye player

Maverick_

Brodie omitted. Probably stay clear

Stupid Coach

Spargo to Giro and ZGL to McLean

or

Spargo to Giro and Duman to Simpson

Which of these is the best option ?

Thanks

Sharknado

Simpson due to their BE's, McLean still at 140 but Simpson at 78 which he should hit. Can get McLean for a discount in a week or 2 and don't think you'll lose points between them in a fortnight

Sharknado

Duman also not playing this week and has bye next week, so easy decision there too

Russty_

Yep Duman has to go, hasn't impressed the Coach enough to keep his spot..and has a dodgy back apparently.

Stupid Coach

Thanks Rusty and Sharknado. Only problem with bringing Simmo in is that it leaves me with only 7k in the bank while McLean leaves me with 37k. Should I still go Duman to Simmo.

Russty_

Yeah do it mate, I emptied my reserves this week too, but will make it up next week trading out Doedee down, Brayshaw up and Higgins down.

Stupid Coach

Thanks Russty. Appreciate the advice.

Russty_

Anytime mate.

Shayne

looking at having Petracca or Fritsch at F7.
With Petracca being DPP is he the better option even though I would prefer Fritsch as he is more consistent scorer?

Brock

Which fwd rookie should I bring in Battle or Brander.

Brock

and why?

Russty_

Hey Brock, Brander's been brought in to replace Darling and is 195cm, could have good JS for the time it takes for Darling to get back if he does well this week. DPP DEF/FWD is also a bonus but the downside is he's $148800.
Don't know much about Battle except he scored 77 in his first game which is pretty good, but he has the bye next week.

Sc_Wow

Battle looked great, if you are fine for next round I’d pick battle

Brock

My plan is for the rookie that I bring in to eventually turn into a non-playing loophole so I can loophole my F7 who will be Mundy. Who is more likely to playa couple of games and then get dropped after the byes?

Jim_bob321

VC Bont anyone?

Shake_n_Bake_

Billings to return πŸ™‚

Russty_

Happy days!…hope he's not too knackered from his 50,000 possessions last week.

Shake_n_Bake_

Just an extra option to us clowns 🀑 who held on to him!!

Russty_

Never know Shake, he could've turned a corner now and start living up to what he did last year.

Shake_n_Bake

Now looking at some of the outs will come in handy for me Russty!!

Russty_

Imagine if he knocks out a 120 for you this week mate?..will be a big advantage!

Shake_n_Bake_

Gives me 18 this week so any score from him will help!!

Sc_Wow

Just heard on local radio that there is a strong chance rocky goes to macrea

Russty_

Was that the DJ's opinion Wow or a direct quote from Hinkley?..might influence my decision to bring Rocky in now.
Which Radio Station was it?

Maverick_

Barrass ruled out with ongoing nightmares from his rd1 matchup with buddy. Expect buddy to go large again Friday night

Russty_

Haha, I've already whacked the VC on him Mav, hope it works out, McGovern or Hurn could get the job now, hope he kicks 8 goals like last time! πŸ™‚

Defying_Madness

Murphy, Phillips and Heron out and Laird not back. Not sure how to solve these donuts

hedski

I think I'll munch on a couple DM.

Russty_

Yup, I'm going 16 this week with Laird out.

hedski

Whoa, Murphy, Coffield, Phillips, Heron and Brodie.
OUT!!!!

Defying_Madness

Looking at a min 3 donuts after trades I think I will throw in the towl

iLoveNMFC

Who to get community,
Josh Battle or Charlie Ballard?
JS? Scoring Potential? Bye Structure?

iLoveNMFC

Maybe even Liam Ryan?!

Russty_

Brander and Ryan in for the Eagles, Ryan will make 68K this week if he scores his projected score of 69..and continue to make money up until the finals if he keeps up the good play.

Holty01

Done mate.

BlueBaggerJosh

Fielding 16 this week, yay

Sc_Wow

Well my team is now [email protected]

Defying_Madness

Yah these are the worst byes I have ever had

Sc_Wow

Down to 13 this week

Defying_Madness

I will be at 14 or 15 after trades. It feels terrible mate

Davo

A few of us us now [email protected], was looking comfortable, now need clever trades to get 18 on field.

Russty_

I've done clever trades, and still only have 16 lol

Sc_Wow

I'm going to be the same ruusty, 13+3=16
Wish I had more trades lol

Russty_

Just gotta try to get out VC choice right this week wow, I'm gonna try to Hail Mary it with Buddy, could still end up with 1750-1800, I'd be happy with that.

Sc_Wow

Yep I'm going big boy Neale, I'll be happy with another 1680

Finnius

that would be huge this week. Tbh I think anything over 1550 will be very good. What are you looking like for next week?

Sc_Wow

I've got 19 playing next week 17 promos

Where's the panic room… down to 17 players with Ed Phillips and Darcy Fogarty out. Thinking Fogarty to Liam Ryan

WhySoSerious

12 on field before trades… Not a snow balls chance in hell this week.

hedski

Who is more likely to get games in the back end of the season, Phillips (St.K) or Barry?
Probs trade 1 to Giro (will he keep playing?).
Extra cash from Phillips will be handy next week and has the same bye, Barry good loophole until/if he gets a gig.
Will be munching a few donuts either way. Cheers.

The Ranger

Donuts here as well Hedski. I'm putting on weight thru these byes.
Cash generation is becoming a nightmare too.
Duman, Ridley, Coffield, Philips, Keefe and T.Smith all doing sweet FA.

hedski

I'll be grabbing Robbie in a minute Ranger, then just a def spot to fill, will have f all trades left tho so will be carrying rooks. My rookies are Mirra, Austin, Murphy, Phillips, Barry, McInerney, ZGL, Fritsch, T.Smith and Guelfi.
Fritsch and 1 of Barry/Phillips will be going for Gray and Giro, then Murphy and ZGLout next week for Ahearn and Redman. Then its buckle up hold on tight time.

The Ranger

I did Spargo, ZGL and Higgins – Hoff, Chad and SiciFlog.
Which felt great for a while and then I looked at my team and it was still shite.

hedski

Ha ha.πŸ‘

Finnius

Awesome! With tonight's outs, I have 16 this week and 17 next, even after planning all season to have 18 for all the byes. I am going to go really early on Brander otherwise I only have 16 next week as well.

Higgins on an extended bench with Rioli back in will probs be out as well lol.

Russty_

Yeah I can see that happening mate, maybe 15 for me this week lol.

Noah

Ed Curnow or Cripps for VC this week?

BlueBaggerJosh

Curnow

Corza

Hi Community I need a bit of help this week i’m Down to 15 Trades and 90K left
Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Sicily, Savage, Doedee (Mirra, Ridley)

Fyfe, Danger, Mitchell, Martin, Cripps, Coniglio Holman, Brayshaw,
(Spargo, Phillips, Ahern)

Gawn, Nankervis (Olango)

R.Gray, McLean, Heeney, Walters, D.Smith, Fritsch, (Langdon, T.Smith)

Currently have only 16 this week should I make some trades?

Russty_

Hi Corza, you could go T.Smith to Liam Ryan and Phillips to Giro, would give you 18.

Corza

That leaves me with 13 Trades is that enough with a plan of making three upgrades next week (Doedee to Hurley) (Brayshaw to Rockliff) (Nank to Natanui) leaving me with 2 onfield spots still to fill (premiums)

Russty_

Yeah that's plenty mate…a lot of guys only have 4 to 6 left after byes.

Corza

Cool Cheers once again Rusty!πŸ‘πŸ»

Russty_

Welcome mate.

Russty_

Try to save a few for your League Finals though.

FearTheBeard

FFS.

Is worth Liam Ryan worth jumping on OR the big unit Brander?

Or pass? I'm 2 off full premium and really need the cash. I can potentially flick Phillips I guess and go for Ryan and make 30k or so?

Hold & wait for a better option to give me the 100k+?

FearTheBeard

I could also hold off a week and go Redman/Smith from Mirra and hope Phillips returns? Just Ryan gives me another warm body for 2 weeks?

Russty_

How messed up are these Bye rounds so far?!!!???!!!???!!!???!!! LOL, hard to plan for this kind of shitey carnage, it's like we all smashed into the Karma Bus drunk driving!

Rick Grimes

Looks super wet in Adelaide tonight. Had the Hoff in mind. How will he go in the wet?

FearTheBeard

I would likely be holding him though for the cover on bench.

I'm at the stage I have 2 places to upgrade to be full premium with 500k in the bank.

It's why I'm questioning Ryan in for Phillips will only make me 30k but give me a warm body for next 2 weeks HOPEFULLY.

Or

I sit tight this week and cull Mirra for either Redman or Smith and pocket 100k+ to give me 600k to upgrade last 2 spots?

FearTheBeard

Thoughts Russty_

Russty_

Ryan will make you some nice cash Beard..next week,and going fwd, and is a proven scorer, not sure about brander, could end up being a dud, the money he (Ryan)makes you in the next 5 weeks could be handy if you get an injury, Battle is also an option..not sure on his JS though. Ryan was flying before his untimely injury.

Finnius

I am going early on Brander this week FTB, simply because the 50k between him and Ryan is crucial. If you can afford it I would, but if not no worries. you'll need about 1060k for two upgrades, keep that in mind.

FearTheBeard

Finnius.

Always see you post, thanks for taking the time.

My line of thought is my last two targets are Macrae & Walters.

I figure if I took Ryan for Phillips and he gives me a warm body for next couple weeks while the above bleed cash he helps cover that cash if I also add to that 530k in the bank? Thoughts?

Finnius

Good point. Ryan will probably get to 320-330k in a couple of weeks. Only problem with that is that you are waiting a long time to get full premo. Between Macrae and Walters, you'll be forking about 1100k, so it depends how long you want to wait. If playing for league and you are going fine then just hold, but if you are playing for rank I would go to brander or even wilson depending if you have enough round 14 cover, simply to get as much cash as possible to get to full premo ASAP.

FearTheBeard

Thanks mate. I am going for league no chance in rank.

Next question then :

Am I better

Holding Phillips and hope he returns as it's only netting 30k and a warm body for now

OR

Going Mirra for either Redman/Smith next week and netting 100k?

I have Austin on the bench for D and Ahern to rotate between mid/foward and T Smith if he gets back in forwards too + Phillips in Mids? thoughts?

Finnius

I mean I think if playing for league then just hold this week. Go mirra to redman/smith next week and take the cash.

FearTheBeard

Thanks Finnius πŸ™‚

Rick Grimes

Heres a sneaky one….Jarryd Lyons. Back in the team. Will smash out the posessions. Little up and down but capable of hitting 120-130s. Cost you $400k.

AuroraBorealis?!

I've decided to say f*ck the byes, I'm not trading so i can squeeze one more players score in for 1 week, i'm trading for the future of my team. This means im going in this week with only 14 players. IM WAVING THE WHITE FLAG BYES. YOU WIN

Russty_

A lot of us end up playing for Leagues in the end anyway Aurora, not a bad plan mate, Playing against your mates in Leagues is fun and has serious bragging rights, playing for rank alone leaves a rather empty feeling in your soul if you don't end up in the top 10.

AuroraBorealis?!

I'm way back in rankings anyway Russty, sitting at 12k so theres no point in me stressing about overall, i'd just like to finish in the top 2.5k this season

Russty_

I said totally FK the byes last year, still ended up winning half my Leagues and ranked 1500…sometimes you gotta take the loss mate.

AuroraBorealis?!

Yep, i'm taking the L

TheGreatBozza

Robbie Gray – yes or no?

Down to 15 pre trades. Looking at offloading Higgins, ZGL and Murphy to get me to 18

Rick Grimes

Very wet in Adelaide. That good or bad. I dunno

TheGreatBozza

Yeah I’m not sure.

Can grab Gray, Ryan and Giro this week. I’ve got 17 trades so can afford to be aggressive

Sam_01

Something to take into account also boys I reckon Spargo doesn’t play next week, might have to flick him also
Will have 17 on field this week and 17 next week if Spargo doesn’t get up
Is it worth going to brander real early? Locks in two sides of 18 and gives me sicily swing which is nice
The only thing it compromises is my ability to upgrade savage to a better d6 as I will be strapped for cash and trades after completing my team with jkelly next week!

Russty_

Not sure Sam, Brander could be a Deer in the headlights and score a 25…might be better to go with Ryan..the excitement machine.

Sam_01

Strapped for cash mate haha can’t do oldmate Ryan

Russty_

Battle?

Finnius

I think he needs rd 14 cover though Rusty.

Daniel

Who is the better f6 for the rest of the year between jjk and gunston?

BlueBaggerJosh

Gunston

BlueBaggerJosh

but go JJK good option if you need the cash

DavidSA

17 playing 15 premo
Not bad consedering the absolute carnage

Sc_Wow

Shut up

Sc_Wow

lol

DavidSA

What happened to your team bro?

Sc_Wow

Just had a few rookies out, phillips was rough. Laird has kind of screwed me. I'll send 16 out there
