Round 16 SuperCoach Panic Room

Published by Jock on

An absolutely huge week in the Panic Room this week!

Nat Fyfe’s injury is one of those “everyone remembers where they were” type of things. Personally I was playing Crash Bandicoot. After dying for the 1,658th time I calmly placed (read: threw with uncontrolled rage) my controller down and checked the scores of Brisbane v Fremantle. I had four Freo players in the last game of the round and I was tracking for a 2,500 score. Alas, I was greeted by the big red cross next to Fyfe on Fanfooty. I left a note and $20 for pizza for Patch and jumped on the next flight over the Perth.

I’m on my way, Fyfey! I was born to provide rigorous hamstring rubdowns for you ❤ #AFLFreoLions

— Kevin Horton (@SC_Kev7) July 1, 2018

I’m sorry, Community. I have failed. My 3am rubdowns, chicken soup, and nightly spooning haven’t paid off and Nat is looking at 4-5 weeks on the sidelines. Is spooning a recognised hamstring recovery method? No. Have I stopped? Also no. You can’t hold, not now. Maybe if you’ve managed to build to M9 and feeling confident. Maybe. A direct swap to another premium midfielder is doable as the most expensive in Tom Mitchell is only 56k away and Josh Kelly is 14k away. Everyone else is cheaper than Fyfe.

There are other ways to play this. Cash gen has really dried up lately as our new batch of rookies have struggled for game time. Trading Fyfe to a player in a purple patch and using the extra coin is a viable strategy. A risky, ballsy strategy sure, but still a strategy.

So what do we do? Well we go to the guaranteed* best in the business. The technology overlords at Windows conspired to take our beloved podcast off us this week, but being the absolute troopers that Patch and Lek are, they re-recorded and let that podcast run wild and free, for as the old saying goes, “Let your podcast run wild and free.” Teams out of the final race will now be looking to blood their kids, Barron has his finger on the pulse in Around the Grounds this week. Patch takes a look at our captain choices for the round ahead (and actually remembered to include Tom Mitchell this time), and after four months of cheat sheets Damo is still producing all round brilliance.

*not a guarantee

THE NEWS

Well Thursday night footy is not here to have sexual intercourse with spiders this week. Isaac Heeney. BAM! Gone. Unable to recover from his concussion in time. Both teams play musical chairs with a few kids. Of note: Recent rookie Jamaine Jones is back. Scott Selwood returns for the Cats. Will he shadow JPK?

Matt Crouch has busted his hand as the Crows play the Tigers on Friday. He’ll play but cross him off your trade in targets. Tom Lynch replaces Dave Mackay in their only change. The Tigers are providing some forward line bench relief in the form of Callum Moore for those that have him. Corey Ellis is back too. The suspended Nick Vlastuin and the injured Reece Conca are the ones to make way.

Brisbane have announced an unchanged lineup for the first time in 17 years (this is not a real stat, do not @ me). Paddy Dow is being managed at Carlton. Matt Kreuzer will return. Is anyone still holding Jarrod Garlett? Shock, horror. He’s out injured. Aidyn Johnson has been named for Port and is on the bubble this week. Tom Jonas and Jack Watts are other big names to return. A mix of fringe and injured players make up their outs. Jasper Pittard being the most high profile. St. Kilda’s backline has fallen over days after the national under 18 carnival. I’m not suggesting anything here, but if I was it starts with t and ends with anking. Carlisle and Nathan Brown out doesn’t matter from a SuperCoach viewpoint, but they’ve taken Bailey Rice from us. Jimmy Webster and Logan Austin return for those that held. Charlie Spargo is back for the Dees, but Mitch Hannan is out. At Freo, seeing Nat Fyfe’s name among the outs has brought up old wounds and I’m now writing this slightly misty eyed. Ryan Nyhuis has been dropped. Hawthorn and the Bulldogs have made two changes each, but they won’t hurt you at all.

There’s TWELVE new names listed between North and Gold Coast. I’m not going to list them all as I’m on a deadline / have a life (one of those is correct). Jacob Dawson is out. Will Brodie and Jacob Heron are on an extended bench. There’s a possible debut for Will Walker (MID – 117.3k). It’s pretty much curtains for GWS in 2018. Jono Patton has done his knee again the poor bloke. There are more changes in this game than I can keep up with. Liam Ryan is being managed and there are possible debuts for Oscar Allen (FWD – 117.3k), Aiden Bonar *giggles* (FWD/MID – 157.8k) and Brent Daniels (FWD/MID – 117.3k). For the last game of the week, both teams have topped up their extended benches, Sam Murray is a chance to return.

THE HOUSE OF EVIL

Another week, another batch of so-so rookie bubble boys. Brayden Ainsworth and Aidyn Johnson are both due for their first price rise this week. Yeah… don’t Both garbage, 

Some cavalry is on the horizon in the form of Brayden Sier and Quinton Narkle. Both had super debuts but the path of SuperCoach is littered with injured and dropped rookies lately, so hold fire on both.

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

-39 – Brayden Ainsworth*

-13 – Aidyn Johnson

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

196 – TMac

174 – Kruze

167 – Clayton Oliver

160 – Rory Sloane

160 – Jimmy Webster

157 – Luke Ryan

157 – Ollie Wines

146 – Gaz

145 – Bont

SMOOTH KEVY’S LOCK OF THE WEEK

Nat Fyfe will be at the forefront of trade plans for 56% of coaches this week. To me it’s a case of selecting the next best available. Trying to replace the scoring power of Fyfe, he’s gone 120+ 7x this season, with a Luke Shuey type is an unnecessary risk that you don’t need to take.

You can still grab a POD if you’re looking to distinguish your team from the pack. Ed Curnow (109.9 ave. In 3.5% teams), Andrew Gaff (109.1 ave. In 6.7% teams), and Lachie Neale (108.5 ave. In 7% of teams) are all great options with high ceilings.

A lot has been discussed on Twitter about the absence of Fyfe and Sandi won’t really have much of an affect on Neale, he actually might prosper. I’m still leaning towards Gaff. The former flat track bully has really excelled this season, turning his undoubted ball winning ability into higher ceiling scores. West Coast still have a lot to play for as they aim not to blow their 10-1 start, whereas Fremantle will just coast to the end of the year. A higher draft pick in a stacked draft is gold in a rebuilding team.

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR

G’day Community. Let’s get this out of the way early because let’s face it, my pants will be off and I’ll be sinking piss in preparation for this game. I’ve fired up the number cruncher at Fantasy Insider and the guru’s have given us this optimal lineup for tonights game.

My take:

RUCKS

Only two options tonight (I’m not counting JJ). Nank has a better average by 5.7, whereas Sauce has a better 3-game form by 4.7. There’s only $250 between them. Digging slightly deeper, Sauce has absolutely bossed Nank in recent times. He scored 120 vs Richmond earlier in the year and logged 158 and 96 last year. Along with 122 in the GF. Nank has an average of 92 across that 4-game period.

DEF

Rory Laird stands way above the pack at 15.5k. He’s an obvious gun but that’s just too expensive for mine. His 5-game average is 103.4 which is just 6.6x value so I’m looking elsewhere. I love Jayden Short. I’ve been stuffing him into lineups at every opportunity. His price is starting to catch up without his output but with a 5-game average of 92 he’s a pretty safe bet to hit value at 11.4k. Corey Ellis has been named this week and will probably head to the backline to fill the void left by Nick Vlastuin. He’s never been a particularly high scorer but only needs a 60 to hit 10x value.

FWD

When Conca went down last week Snags Higgins moved into the midfield and had 20 possessions, 7 marks, and 73DS. Richmond have brought in Cal Moore which says to me Higgins will continue to get increased midfield minutes. It’s a badly kept secret that Kane Lambert hits beast mode in SC with Dion Prestia in the side, and it translates to the DFS world as well. Lambert averages 101.6 (5 games) with Prestia in the side, 63.5DS without.

MID

Expecting some big numbers in the clash as Richmond don’t tag and Adelaide mids refuse to run both ways. The news of Matt Crouch’s fractured hand makes me nervous. He says he’s fine and good to go but I’m not feeling it. Especially for a guy that handballs as much as he does. Rory Sloane is at his best when there isn’t a tagger hanging off him. and 12.2k is just too good of a price to pass up on a player of his quality. Dusty hasn’t hit the heights of last year but his reduced price we know he can flick the switch. He hasn’t scored below 90 in his past 5 against the Crows. Dion Prestia has had a stop / start year. He scored 92 last week after a two month injury layoff. In round 7 he scored 70DS from half a game. Last of all, Jack Graham averages 8 tackles a game over the past 3 weeks and has 70’s to his name in each game.

My lineup:

The JR Group is currently the 109th best group in the land! Can we get into the top 100? That would be a phenomenal effort on behalf of the Community. Best of luck and, if you’re listening SC Gods, stop injuring our premiums!

AuroraBorealis?!

What are the chances that L.Keefe gets a game? Need him in to avoid Heeneys 0

Marty

Three to be omitted. Possibly Shipley, Bonar and either Keefe or Daniels to go.

Seeker

With no Cameron and now Patton I’m hoping Keeffe gets a few more games

rtz

Cop a donut or bring in the likes of Wingard, Billings or Riewoldt? Would be my F6

SC_Kev7

Wingard’s record against the Saints is pretty good

BigAl_15

I reckon Billings cos if he's still averaging around 90, he'll score pretty good, gain cash and then you might wanna upgrade him if you can. But otherwise, go Wingard

r_calve

the chad looks so good right now bring him in

COYS

Fyfe to Beams and Guelfi to B. Brown?
I have 8 trades left and $27k in the bank.
I want to do a straight swap Fyfe for Neale, but that leaves me with bugger all and still needing to upgrade Guelfi down the track.

SC_Kev7

Not sold on BB, COYS. Any other option?

trevor

Beams a legitimate option Kev? I am very tempted by him and crouch??

Can you go wingard COYS?

Gibbs

Have 7 trades after trading Fyfe, do I use 1 to upgrade Dusty? If I was to upgrade him id have 530 K to do it

OR
Could upgrade Goldy to Grundy or just hold trades,

Personally Rather trade Dusty

SC_Kev7

Gaff/Curnow under 530k is tempting… Both look to be top 10 mids

Marty

Glad I'm full team because so many bench players are not playing. Giro, Spargo and Guelfi are the only ones acting as subs. Liam Ryan out will hurt some teams. Fingers crossed there are no injuries after matches this week. Good luck to all supercoachers.

FearTheBeard

Hold Fyfe with either Giro/J Smith for a week and go for Macrae or go for JPK/Neale/Gaff/Bont?

BlueBaggerJosh

the scoring difference between macrae and the midfield premos you listed will not be significant enough to merit a week where you will probably lose 40 points at least. Also macrae is 1-2 weeks, he is a superstar and bulldogs might go conservative with him.

FearTheBeard

Thanks mate. So that leaves me at who? LOL.

SC_Kev7

Gaff slightly ahead of Neale for mine

Crazy Bugger

anyone rate riding out the season with no trades?

AuroraBorealis?!

nope haha, especially not with how frequent the injuries have been this year

Ahmad rubas

I can loophole either Simpson or laird this week. Should I go with Simpson who is more likely to do worse than laird or go laird because it will be more valuable benching a poor score from such a highly owned player. Or don't bother and just leave the E on cole

SC_Kev7

Reckon you’re pretty safe, Ahmed. That said, Simmo more likely to chuck in a stinker

Ahmad rubas

Yeah I think cole E is more safe on the small chance that rice comes in as a late in

THE SALTSHAKER

DEF: Laird, Yeo, Sicily, A Brayshaw, Lloyd, Savage (Austin, Mihocek)

MID: Danger, Dusty, Rocky, Zorko, Gaff, Shuey, Danger, Conigs (Macrae, Giro, Ahern)

RUCK: Grundy Gawn (olango)

FWD: Gray, McLean, D.Smith, Walters, Wingard, De Goey (Buddy, T. Smith )

Did Fyfe > Gaff, Guelfi > Shuey

1 trade left $6k

Can loop Buddy first game, Dusty 2nd game and toss up. between Smith De Goey who gets bench
Ranked 1456, dropped 600 odd spots rnd 13 as Cap Titch was robbed vs plenty had Cripps + simpson, last week took Cap off Titch where its been most of year going to keep Gawns 139 but Aherns late inclusion meant my loop closed and forced to take Fyfe inj was looking 2450 to 2500 myself still went up 6 places

Now just gotta hang on, if inj get me so be it, if not loving my options even more upon Macraes return

BlueBaggerJosh

wow you are set up brilliantly, i have one trade left and not one premo on bench lol

THE SALTSHAKER

well zorko started it, was cheap, as id burnt heaps of trades i thought i needed some value from the roles, got rocky, brayshaw, wingard, de goey, playing mid roles, then fritsch to walters last week, fyfe to gaff and used the $60k to move wingard to fwds and bring in shuey who gets 90 to 110 if he plays 110mins – theyve all worked this week 👍

The Ranger

Haha ha…nice work Salty, looks like you've been having a fun year. I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya mate.

THE SALTSHAKER

my fwd line has eaten so many trades, if only i started with mclean + heeney instead of billings and petracca

THE SALTSHAKER

shit thanks for the props! 2633 this week 17th for the week, moved up 845 places to 611th overall had a great week, my cap choices let me down last few, cap grundy this week was nice to have everything work. My loop earnt me de goey 117 over buddys 59 so has worked out taking some early chances…fingers crossed no major injuries 👍

BlueBaggerJosh

Lloyd starting my perfect 9 up well, already packing my suitcases for a trip around the world.

JohnDJ59

Same

Russty_

Did the same Josh, unfortunately, no one will ever win that ripoff game…it's too stacked against anyone winning it.

Finnius

Agreed. You can get 5 max. They don't let you change any after the round starts either – so with Simpson a late out I couldn't switch. There are always going to be a few Steve Motlops each week as well.

Defying_Madness

I wonder how many will get baited by Scooter this year haha

TheGreatBozza

I’ve learnt from last year

Marty

Is the real Danger back? Looking good tonight.

Randomcliche2

I didn't watch the final quarter, did they do the same as last week and swing him forward permanent again? He was on about 100 at 3/4 time, same as last week. He is definitely back fit and playing well. Recommend buying if you don't have. Note that Chris Scott is continuing to have brain fades and put him forward for quarters, so expect 105-115 avg, not the 130 odd from last year.

Edit, just seen Marty's comment below. Yes he was fwd. Dammit.

BrownlowBoy

Geelong are a far better team with Scooter Selwood fit

Corey

Love Scott Selwood I 100% agree you see a significant improvement in the Cats whenever he is in the side, shame he’s often injured

Rooey

Is it worth trading fyfe to Heppell so I can afford Lloyd next week or just go with Neale and a 450kish def or fwd?

KSinny

Depends, which two do u reckon you'll get the most points from?

Corey

Dangerfield playing a lot more midfield with Taylor back in the side playing forward, 72 at HT if only I put the VC on him!

BrownlowBoy

Agree. A second key forward is key for Danger playing mid.

Corey

Need Crameri back

SamuraiPizzaCat

I VC'ed him, keep going Danger

Marty

Nope Scott has screwed him over again placing him in the forward line all last quarter.

SamuraiPizzaCat

Yep.. -5 points in the 4th quarter damn

Russty_

And everyone who had the VC on him!…was looking like getting a great score too.

Lone Ranger

Your not alone

dontblushbaby

I don't have them but how disappointing are Parker & Hannebery , and then there's Gaz , early retirement ?

Defying_Madness

Menegola can join them

BrownlowBoy

Poor disposal hurt him.

Connor

Yep 8 clangers hurts alot – scored 111 DT too. What could've been

Connor

Franklin losing 13SC for that 50 hurts!

Defying_Madness

Danger playing deep forward now

Sc_Wow

Scott is cooked

BlueBaggerJosh

Just scored a goal

Russty_

Buddy you sucked tonight, you can pay me back by getting 183 again like you did last year in my grand finals. 🙂

Connor

Was on 74 prior to giving away the 50 – ended on 59….

Russty_

Key forwards are always a crapshoot…sucked he got penalized for that, didn't hear the call or the whistle, Umpires are a bit too anal retentive these days.

Steeeve

What the hell Danger? Thought my VC was going to pay handsome dividends at 3qtr

BlueBaggerJosh

How much will Lloyd go up after that performance?

SamuraiPizzaCat

about $18k

neil demons delight

Rubbish game but Hedski your cats were better just NDD

hedski

If only we could kick straight Neil. I'll take it though 👍

Russty_

Good win mate…keeps your lads on track for the finals. 🙂

neil demons delight

Both teams are hard to get a line on.Tigers are montys at present and Collingwood next ( took a bit that) NDD

theRealPod

Go Cats

Shake_n_Bake_

Should have won that by 7 or 8 goals Neil. Hedski will still be happy with the win.

neil demons delight

are you holding Fyfe Shake

Shake_n_Bake_

Switched Boak to mids going to have the E on him Neil and might see how he goes 1st. I play you again this week.

Corey

Classic Swans, Cats 4 Quarter Scrap where Geelong dominate the stat sheet but the result is often in favour of the Swans, but we’ll take the four points tonight!

Russty_

Not sure, Darcy isn't a pushover, plus they're playing in Darwin, and it's going to be 33 degrees, not sure how Gawny handles hot weather.

Connor

Refer to game vs Adelaide in Alice Springs earlier this year. Scored 114 against Jacobs (I know he wasn't in form but still a decent ruck) but played 10-15 minutes less game time than normal

BrownlowBoy

Didn't you say you stopped VC'ing Dangerfield in round 5 just last week?

hedski

Good win for the cattas BB, got you in the Mag 7, good luck mate.

BrownlowBoy

Wasn't pretty, but you take them however you can get them.

The 2 inclusions tonight, Scooter and Jones had 20 tackles between them. Huge effort.

Looks like Taylor might be cooked, maybe throw Henderson forward when he's fit do you think?

Scooter makes a huge difference in our midfield. Very underrated member of the team from outsiders looking in.

Really liking Stanley's efforts lately, has improved greatly.

Best of luck for this week, I brought in JPK over Selwood whoops!

hedski

Harry needs to go back, struggling fwd. Scoots a great in, love his pressure. Stanners is giving more effort which he needed to.
Yeah I got JPK in too, glad I already have Joel. 👍

BrownlowBoy

Go back to the 2's or defence?

Really don't know if he's in our best 22.

Randomcliche2

TY! 🙂 I've VC'd Cripps into Gawn this week…lets see how that goes.

JohnDJ59

Lloyd would have been a good pod VC, if only I hadn't chickened out.

Randomcliche2

If only I'd even thought about it…

hedski

If only I had him…

red5

Thinking Fyfe ro Beams & Guelfi to Mclean

theRealPod

I like those moves Red

john

Is it worth trading Fyfe if I only have 7 trades left and 1 more premium to upgrade?

DO DEES DOH

Yes i traded Fyfe and Guelfi to McLean and Crouch (full premo finally) only 4 trades left now and 5k in the bank so locked in for a while.

James

Andrew Gaff or Lachie Neale?

SC_Kev7

Gaff

Sc_Wow

Both

Lone Ranga

How are peoples teams going?
Full premo? (how many off or above full)
How many trades left?
Cash in the piggy?

Ja191

1 off full premo and will have 3 trades left when I get them

Mark

full premo (IMO), 6 trades, 65k in the kitty and ranked 113:)

SamuraiPizzaCat

Full premo, except for Heeney on the bench, covered by Ahern
6 trades left
45k in the bank
Rank a long way behind Mark

INPieman

Full premo, 5 trades after this week, 200k in the bank, rank just outside top 1k. 2 bad weeks in a row & went into freefall. But top 4 in all leagues

The Ranger

Full premo(ish). 6 trades after this week. 165K in the kitty.

Lazza

1.5 off Full premo … Nank and Richards on field … 9 trades left.
Would have gone to Grundy this week but Fyfe trade-out stuffed that up… (need 2 trades to do it)
Might cash out Guelfi to non-playing DPP to cash up so that I can bring in a bubble boy next week together with Grundy. This will leave me with 8 trades going into next week.

AuroraBorealis?!

Just wanted to say that your panic room write ups always make me laugh, hilariously well written and informative. Cheers for all the consistently good work this year Kev

SC_Kev7

Cheers, AB! Great to get feedback. How’s your year been mate?

Dice_real

Dustin will bounce back tonight with 150

Corey

He’s due

Pod

Fyfe will get the Dusty tag

Pod

Sloane will get the Dusty tag lol

Crow94

😂

Steve

What's everyones thoughts on Pendles as a stand in for Fyfe? scored well passed few weeks – bigger role/reliance with Treloar out maybe?

Pod

Like him or adams they are both so cheap i remember when adams was getting tonnes every week last year playing midfield it looked to have changed on the weekend and instead of him playing in the backline his playing mid again showing with his 30 posies and tackles

TheGreatBozza

Decided to be aggressive this week and roll with Richards as my Heeney cover.

Thoughts on Fyfe > Oliver, Ryan > Brander to swing Sicily FWD.

Leaves with me 7 trades so I can target any DEF or FWD premo next week. Looking at Lloyd or Westhoff

Other option is to go Ryan to Hurley/Bradshaw and Fyfe to Gaff

Thoughts?

Randomcliche2

Good, I run Sicily forward, won't touch Tmac. Suggest Llyod, although you're paying slightly overs, he's top 6 def no probs from here out. The value pick is webster next week.

TheGreatBozza

Yeah I don’t like Tmac. I’m basically stuck this week between settling for a sub premo MID and premo FWD/DEF or vice-versa

I’m thinking the smart play is to get a premo mid this week like Oliver and reassess DEF/FWD upgrades next week. Better than settling for a player I don’t really like

Pod

Charlie Curnow may come home strong Blues have Lions Stkilda Hawks GC GWS Bulldogs in the next month and a half he will go HUGE thoughts? Community (posted earlier but on another thread)

Ja191

will he be your f7? I like it though. Gotta risk it for the biscuit

Pod

Yeah to cover heeny then will loophole him and walters or smith

red5

tempted on recent form, 110 & 108
BE 28
Can he keep it up??

Mark

Ranked 113. Had the tough choice to make. Fyfe to who!!!??? Have gone to Dangerfield. 104 this week has paid off. Benched Heeney in favor of Doedee (a bit of DPP magic). The team currently this week sits at

Def: Lloyd, Simpson, Yeo, Laird, Webster, Doedee (Austin, Keeffe)
Mid: Mitchell, Kelly, Cripps, Dangerfield, Oliver, Merrett, Coniglio, Rockliff (Heeney, Giro, J.Smith)
Ruck: Gawn, Martin (McInerney)
Fwd: Smith, McLean, Sicily, McDonald, Gray, Hogan (T.Smith, Ahern)

Coverage on all lines and allows me what I had planned for with DPP between Sicily, McDonald and Keefe. 6 trades left and $65,100 in the kitty. Had to go Treloar to Kelly last week. Injuries are starting to hit!

Mark

ok, wow! Just made a permanent trade that leaves me with 5 left now. Went Doedee to Wingard! Leaves me some good DPP links and can run a few between forwards and mids with a premo on the bench I guess? Just hoping Doedee doesn't go off:)

The Ranger

I like the Wingard trade Mark, all the while he's playing in the guts he scores well.
Fingers crossed on the injury front now eh?

Derek

Doh!

Rabbits16

doing well m8 keep it up!

Randomcliche2

Nice looking team, hang on, that's my midfield! 5 other differences though… i'll use some of your trades later please. Cheers

Trades

Fyfe to Cripps leaving Taranto/Ahern F6
Or
Fyfe to Gaff/Merett & Taranto to McLean

Only have 15k in the kitty

Mark

how many trades left?

Mark

if enough I'd go Fyfe to Gaff and Taranto to McLean. Gaff is heating up and Merrett is Mr. Consistent. Can't go wrong with either. In saying that though, Essendon has 5 top 8 teams coming up and only 3 outside of the 8, but again, he's consistent. Gaff only had Freo and Brisbane outside of the 8 and all others finals contenders. Both well priced. Gaff IMO though. Only 3 scores under 100 and 2 of those were 85 and 92 with the other being 74. That's consistent as well, haha:)

TheGreatBozza

I'd go option two. As much as a beast that Crippa is, I think McLean is a bargain at his price

Connor

Any Collingwood and/or Port Adelaide supporters…
T. Adams – role change? is he gonna play midfield, ave 105+
C. Wingard – will he keep playing midfield time?

Franklin Show

Fyfe to whom is on everyones lips!!!

I have narrowed the list to 2 – Gaff or J Kelly.

J.Kelly – is a risk if GWS lose a few games finals is over and does that mean Kelly is put out to be ready for next yr.

Gaff – safe pick with WC needing all the players to make sure they dont stuff up their start.

I'm so stuck – 6 trades so don't really have the trades to be stuffing around with corrections. Thoughts. Help Please.

Connor

I am just about set on Gaff.. already have Kelly but I like the look of Neale with Fyfe out (Sandi out tends not to affect him)

Ja191

only thing I worry about is if he can handle the extra attention that fyfe usually takes freeing him up

Connor

take a look at 2016 season

fcabel

Kelly. He's much better

Ricardo

Kelly has higher ceiling than Gaff

r_calve

so glad I brought in Duncan last night instead of Kennedy, 3 seconds before the lockout

Ja191

one weeks one week, we'll see at the end of the year 😛

trevor

How much longer can chaddy stay in the guts of port for? Will he play the season out there?

BrownlowBoy

Wouldn't think Kenny changes a winning formula

The Ranger

I bloody hope so Trev. Can't see any reason for Hinkley to change it.

red5

What are peoples thoughts on Mclean. He seems like good value to me.
He scored 102 last week
3 crap scores in rounds 11 to 14
Averaged 110 from rounds 1 to 10.
Has he had a role change, carrying injury or just 3 rounds of bad form?

Ja191

he's a 10/10 for value get him in if you don't have him he had a slight shoulder injury but looks to have recovered with 10+ tackles last week

red5

Thanks Ja
the shoulder injury makes sense

hedski

Robbie Gray zinged into his shoulder red5, think he played sore for a week or two after that, good to go.

AdsyAA

Who would be your go-to defender under 425k? Not much on offer but Fyfe to Beams leaves me with this much if I chop Rice (haha sorry). Looking at Macmillan from North, Scharenberg or Geary. Or another if I could make a case for them. Can't afford a donut this time of the year with where I'm at in the league unfortunately.

Yeahnahyeah

Witherden maybe? Has the potential

AdsyAA

Yep probably best out of the lot. If I can get his 117 against the Bombers again I'd be happy.

Trades

Wait for Webster

Nuggety

Marchbank if you have huge nuts..

SamuraiPizzaCat

Hibberd? burnt a lot of people who started him, including me, but worth a go at 362k? Could finish off the season alright

Nuggety

I'm with Russty. GAGF.

Sc_Wow

Of course you are. You’re both as good as each other ….

Russty_

Didn't your other abusive comments just get deleted within 2 minutes?…give it a rest mate.

Sc_Wow

Yeah it did

Russty_

Doesn't take long for certain people to return to their true nature Nuggety, anyways, let's enjoy the game tonight and good luck everyone this week!

Russty_

Delusion is a wonderful thing for those who are delusional.

Sc_Wow

Sook

I remember you from scpaige wow, didn't you get banned?

Wouldn't be surprised Henry, they've already run off a lot of regular contributors to this site with their negativity and abuse…hence, there's hardly anyone here tonight.

Dale

What is the other site they regulars have gone too?

Russty_

Fantasysupercoach.com Dale, a few regulars also post there, because it's a flog free zone, those two don't have access, although they read it everyday lol.

Trades

Of course Crouch is killing it…

Russty_

Yeah his fractured hand doesn't seem to be bothering him too much! 60+ at half time.

Defying_Madness

I may have put the VC on him lmao. Thought a hail mary would be a good idea since the captain is going on Gawn anyway

Defying_Madness

And he has fallen off the face of the earth just like last week

Russty_

Reckon he could still ton up for you DM.

Steeeve

Every week I want to rage trade Dusty. Every week I don't. Fyfe gets injured and I tell myself this is why I can't trade Dusty. Trades are precious. Then the next Tigers game starts and it does my head in. Dusty just streamed toward goal then fumbled a handpass my 2yo daughter would have caught. It's okay, I think, he's picked it back up. Then he blatantly throws the ball. Likely goal becomes a free against (and maybe a clanger). Bloke is way off the level required to be considered a premo. I just hope I have one trade left and a full team in the last round of the Supercoach season. I will trade Dusty out to almost anyone. It's just a pity he will be priced at 400k by then.

Trades

Regretting trading Taranto now, should've traded Martin instead

Steeeve

Martin gifted a kick inside 50 to start the third. Almost missed his foot. Bugger me.

JohnDJ59

I love your thinking.

BlueBaggerJosh

Zorko and Billings or Heppell and Curnow?

Dale

Zorko & billings

BlueBaggerJosh

What scares me off is that all of Billings good scores have been in wins

Defying_Madness

can you afford maybe walters and shuey?

BlueBaggerJosh

If I get Shuey I can afford any FWD 510k downwards. Just don't trust Shuey if I'm being honest

theRealPod

Heppell and Charlie

NoLanguage

Anyone else pulled the Fyfe to Higgins trade?

Mystic_Mac

Yep

Murray

Is Holman to shuey a good trade or is just a sideways trade and a waste

Russty_

It'd be a waste if Shuey gets injured again but I think he'll outscore Holman the rest of the year Murray.

Murray

Thanks next question is I will have 4 trades left after I trade Fyfe to gaff. should I save the shuey trade as it would leave me with 3 only

Russty_

Yeah maybe I think, unless you have to…once you run out, it all goes to hell so have to try and save a few at least for the finals.

Murray

Thanks rusty as much as I would like to bring in shuey I think I need to save trades for finals. I am 1st and 3rd in cash leagues and trades are critical. Who knows what might happen between now and finals

Ben

Should I hold fyfe and get crouch Next Week seeing as his hand looks fine or go gaff this week or maybe even beams

BlueBaggerJosh

Go gaff
