Round 17 SuperCoach Panic Room

Published by Jock on

Ya gotta squeeze every penny!

That’s our theme for the week in JR HQ. Let me hear you say it:

Squeeze every penny!

Squeeze every penny!

Round 17 is upon us and hell didly ding dong crap, there are only three rounds of league games to go for SuperCoach 2018! On paper this game is easy, you probably had 12 “premiums” at the start of the year if you followed the guns and rookies team building strategy. Thirty trades to get in 10 more premiums? Pizza cake! *kissy fingers.gif*

A couple of failed premiums that rhyme with “Hillings” and / or “Fibberd”, coupled with the curse of the SuperCoach Gods that is injured premiums as soon as they get drafted into our sides see’s that plan thrown out of the window. We get stuck with considering guys that aren’t necessarily premo’s, but could be a premo for us for the next few weeks. Did anyone say Daniel Rich? (Ed note: No, they did not)

Lek and Patch take this line of thinking and dial it up to 11 in this weeks podcast. The importance of having bench cover was felt by many last week with Kade Simpson’s late out, Barron’s Around the Grounds is the most comprehensive take on playing and potential rookies in the land. Damo has given the cheat sheet a shake up this week as he looks at your best options for saving some cash, and Patch returns with Captain McCaptainface, surely on its final few, wheezing breaths, to take a look into some captain options we have this week. 

THE NEWS

Tonight, there seven changes all up for Adelaide v Geelong. None of them will really make you throw any trade plans for the round out the window. Some possible bench action with both of the Fogarty’s out, and Lachie Murphy returning for the Crows. Will the additions of Dan Menzel and Wylie E. Buzza mean Danger finally plays a full game in the midfield?

I will not be able to watch the Friday night “mockbuster” between Carlton and St. Kilda as I’m washing Nat Fyfe’s hair that night. In team news veteran defender and sleeve overlord Kade Simpson is good to go after his late withdrawal last week. Paddy Dow is back. Harry McKay finally gets his chance. Not much worth noting in the outs column. Back up ruckman Andrew Phillips is injured and Darcy Lang’s career is over after Luke Hodge made him look like a fool last week. On the other side of the ledger, Ed Phillips returns to our midfield benches and Billy Longer has been dropped for the 28th time this year.

On Saturday, the Lions are going in unchanged again! Next week there will be 12 changes. Guaranteed. The Hawks have been dealt a blow with an injured Big Boy McEvoy. Joel Smith is out for the Dees. Bernie Vince returns to continue his sole quest to destroy Michael Hibberd SuperCoach relevancy. Guess who’s back? Back again. Jack is BACK. Tell your friends do do do do, do do do do etc etc. Jack Macrae is back for the Bulldogs. It’s offset somewhat by Bont’s appendix isn’t doing whatever it is that appendix’s do correctly, so it, and Bont, are out this week and possibly next. Tom Boyd is also out for the clash. Toby Greene is back for the Giants after a 392 week foot injury or whatever was wrong with him. The Tigers have lost 3 premiership players but have replaced them with two more, one of with is Bachar Houli, and Shai Bolton. The Suns are also unchanged, whether that’s by choice or because no one wants to play for them (snap!). The Dons have lost Jake “The Package” Stringer but are finally giving Darcy Parish a run.

The Eagles are giving themselves the best chance possible of winning in Melbourne by actually bringing a forward line. JJK, Jack Darling, and Mark LeCras are back. Nathan Vardy is their only confirmed out. The Pies have added Darcy Moore to their squad. Flynn Appleby is out injured. Freo rookie Andrew Brayshaw will miss. The Dockers have added 5 with Taylin Duman on an extended bench. Tom Jonas is out again for the Power. Jarrod Lienert (DEF – 123.9k) and Kane Farrell (DEF / MID – 117.3k) are new names in the squad. The Swans have lost Hanners (cooked), Kieran Jack, and McVeigh (working on his tan) for their game against the Roos. Isaac Heeney is the big name in. Darcy Cameron (RUC – 123.9k) and Colin O’Riordan (DEF – 123.9k) have been added to the squad. At the Roos they’ve added Alex Morgan (DEF – 123.9k) and Will Walker (MID – 117.3k) and a few others but who really has North players that aren’t named Goldstein or Higgins?

THE HOUSE OF EVIL

Finally! Some decent rookies on the bubble this week to get excited about. I was initially hesitant about Brad Lynch, but there was a moment in last weeks game against the Hawks where he received a handball in the goal square and had Poppy bearing down on him. Lynch took him on, backed his pace and delivered a pin point kick to a teammate. I like the confidence.

In the mids, does Trengove keep his spot at Port? I’d be leaning toward Sier if you’re after a mid downgrade that will last a few weeks.

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

-71 – Brad Lynch*

-64 – Brayden Sier*

-54 – Jackson Trengove*

-34 – Quinton Narkle*

-20 – Wil Powell*

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

197 – Isaac Heeney

170 – Jimmy Webster

167 – Josh Kelly

161 – Patty Cripps

158 – Lachie Neale

158 – TMac

157 – Ollie Wines

153 – Luke Ryan

149 – Heater

145 – Buddy

SMOOTH KEVY’S LOCK OF THE WEEK

A bit pushed for time this week so I’ll go for the easy lay-up. My knock on Jake Lloyd has always been he needs 30 touches a game to even think about a three figure score. Even then, that three figure score would have been 105. Well it’s time to put that notion bed. His past two months? 130 (36 touches), 173 (41), 118 (26), 90 (24), 106 (29), 122 (28), 125 (34), 136 (33). An average of 125 (!!) over that period.

He’s now ballooned out to 589k which is pricy, but you need this guy in your team if you’re serious about giving SuperCoach finals a fair shake. The Swans have always loved to put the ball in his hands, but now he is turning that into high ceiling scores that will hurt you.

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR

I’m actually all for Thursday night footy this week because Friday night is, uh, Carlton v St. Kilda. Carlton playing St. Kilda in AFL’s much loved “prime time TV” spot of Friday night footy. Can you imagine having a long week at work and your first taste of footy for the weekend is… that.

All that said, things that could make this game interesting:

  • Scoreboard fire
  • Streaker/s (hot ones)
  • Draftstars!

Carlton v Saints at the G… sigh. Look this game might surprise us and be one for the ages. Just incase it’s not, Kung Fu Panda is on Go!

The team at Fantasy Insider are fantastic and brilliant and I can’t say enough positive things about them. Their lineup cruncher has run the numbers and given us this ideal lineup for tonights game:

My take:

RUCKS

Saints only trail the Bulldogs in giving up the highest amount of DS points to opposition rucks. Goldy scored 117 against them in round 2, Grundy 135 in round 9. Gawn has returns of 111 and 135. Now it’s Matthew Kreuzer’s turn and he’s riding solo tonight after the injury to Andrew Phillips. Kruze doesn’t have a great record against the Saints, in fact it’s pretty putrid, but I also don’t want Tom Hickey in my team.

DEF

Did the Blues forwards just forget to apply any sort of pressure last week? Tom Cutler (142), Darcy Gardiner (118), and Alex Witherden (116) had a field day in racking up the points. This brings all of the Saints rebounders into play. Jimmy Webster casually busted out an 85 on return from injury last week, while his 12.6k asking price isn’t brimming with value, those scores from the Lions last week have me a bit more confident. Shane Savage has a more friendlier price but less of a ceiling than Webster. If you’re feeling really brave, Daniel McKenzie has 2x 70’s in his past three games.

FWD

With all their backline injuries it’s not much of a surprise that St. Kilda struggles against the big guys. Charlie Curnow still managed to kick 3 last week in an otherwise quiet day at the office. However, he took a combined 19 marks against Collingwood and Port in rounds 15 and 16. A the other end of the field, Carlton gave up 110DS to Eric Hipwood last week and 113DS to Hoff the week before, Tim Membrey could be a sneaky value play here.

It’s worth noting Carlton generally handles the midfielder / forward types fairly well. I’m not saying avoid them completely, but give second thought to stacking them. Jade Gresham is in a little purple patch. He’s kicked 8 goals in 3 games and is averaging just under 20 disposals over the same period. Jack *clenches teeth* Billings has put together a nice little run and is also an option.

MIDS

I’m anticipating a bit of cat and mouse in the mids. Will Steele go to Cripps? Ed to Seb Ross? Cripps has smashed the Saints on a few occasions so he’s hard to look past, but Steele is no slouch so I’m looking at Marc Murphy instead. Manic tacklers are great for DS as they are worth +4 each, if Steele does indeed head to Cripps he’ll be in the action often. David Armitage has been doing the type of thing we wanted him to do from round 1 and I’ll continue to play him while he’s hot. His price of 11k and 3-round average of 103 is just too good to pass up. Matt Shaw comes into the team and is priced at 5k. His record at GC wasn’t too bad and he’ll be a popular way to save cash.

My lineup:

(Also, Smash Mouth are TOURING in November?!! What is this, 1997? This was Patch when I told him the news)

That’s it for the week gang! Should be a cracker with a relatively nice Thursday team news. Best of luck.

Ahmad rubas

Got 40 minutes to decide downgrading dow to either narkle or Powell? Who would you pick out of those 2

rtz

powell if you got mid-fwd dpp also you got 4 minutes not 40 for narkle

rtz

nvm im wrong about the minutes

Ahmad rubas

ive got westhoff ahern in midfield and mclean heeney petracca in forward line

BrownlowBoy

Narkle

Ahmad rubas

This is what I'm leaning towards

Jim_bob321

Is it worth going Bont to Lloyd seeing those crazy stats or just stick to Yeo and save that 40k
Or does the community suggest any other defenders?

Ahmad rubas

id go lloyd if your happy with the rest of your team and dont need the money

rtz

depends, who you got?

Jim_bob321

Means ill have 3 trades left, 80k in bank with ahern on field

Mike

Bont to Duncan? Already have Danger, Cripps, Kelly, Dusty, Parker, Oliver and Titch. Other options are Gaff, Beams and Crouch.

Finnius

I like Gaff out of those options.

rtz

worth downgrading joel smith to brad lynch for bench cover? or should i move cumming for brad lynch? or just stay put. currently have 5 trades

SC_Kev7

I’d trade Cumming if you’re not after cash, rtz. Doubtful he appears again this year

Russty_

Agree with Kev mate, Smith could be back next week, just has a sore hip this week. Cumming has already come and gone…lol

Mr.Brightside

Fyfe out for Danger or Merrett ?

MEK

Luke Ryan or Tom Stewart

redherringfc

I’m thinking about trading Luke Ryan out this week.

His last 2 weeks have been very poor. I don’t see him finishing off the season the way he started it.

AuroraBorealis?!

I have 5 trades left, and am still 2 short of full premo. Is it worth trading liam ryan to j.trengove (port) so i can swing Ahern forward and avoid a donut? Keep in mind that this isn't just for this round, but most likely the rest of the season as T.Smith, L.Keefe and L.Ryan dont look like getting games any time soon.

Russty_

I think it is Aurora…Ryan might not play anytime soon with Darling, JJK and Lecras all returning this week.

AuroraBorealis?!

I think i might do it Russty, fingers crossed i dont get any injuries or im not gonna make full premo

SC_Kev7

Anything to avoid a dreaded donut, AB!

Kanga

Bont needs to go but not happy with the mids available at the prices so will just do Austin – Lynch and bulid up some cash (5 trades left)
Ahern can cover for Bont this week.
Gonna get a real premo next week J.Macrae when he drops in price for Bont.
Whos with me?

Russty_

Hey Kanga, if you could wait 2 weeks for Macrae he'll probably be at his cheapest then…or next week if you really want him in.

TOPHAWK1

I am shopping for J Mac. Waiting till he comes on special. In 2 weeks me thinks. Parker to Macrae perhaps………..

Russty_

Hiya Hawk, I'm up against you in Guns N Rookies this week, number 1 in the League, well done mate, good luck this week 🙂

TOPHAWK1

Cheers Russty! May the best side prevail!! I have a few little surprises up my sleeve this week. Beware! 😀

Russty_

All good bud…I'll be happy if I end up somewhere near my prediction and not 2100 lol

Lazza

Yep, same here kanga … cashing in Guelfi for Lynch and hanging out for either Macrae or Heeney. Both will be cheap over the next 2 weeks.

hedski

Weak as p!ss Tex

Russty_

Hey mate, yeah looked like a deliberate sniper attack that one.

TOPHAWK1

Does not look flash. Tex gettting desperate. Two pozzies that quarter. Not good enough for a "leader".

TOPHAWK1

Tex the thug. Two week holiday for that useless prick.

BrownlowBoy

Agree. Dog shot.

That's not gonna gain him any more respect.

BrownlowBoy

Maybe he's realised he goes missing too often on the big stage, so he tried to make an impact for once in a big game.

Either way, one of the worst captains going around in the league.

Russty_

Yeah pretty Supercoach irrelevant always, Sloane should've been made Captain years ago..needs to be a player that inspires others to play better.

BrownlowBoy

At least Sloane has some ticker.

Lazza

He is tougher than he looks … and more than I had realised. ..

Defying_Madness

Don't think we can really call him a poor captain when all sources call him an absolutely amazing captain. The players know more than us regarding how much he inspires them

BrownlowBoy

If I had the option to be led by any captain in the AFL, Tex would not be close to the top. Doesn't seem to do anything to inspire his team on gameday.

I'd take Selwood, Ward, Fyfe, Beams, Pendles, Roughy, JPK all miles ahead.

Cobee Bear

Voted best captain in the AFL twice in a row by his peers so…

Crow94

AFL has gone soft 😂
Guarantee id Buddy or a Richmond player did that it wouldnt even get looked at or be a freekick..

TOPHAWK1

???? Gee wizz mate. Get a grip.

Crow94

There is such a thing as protected species in the AFL and i could name 10 players who would get off easily! Im not saying what tex did was right, but if you cant see what i said before then you guys need to get some glasses…

Lazza

😔

Daniel Z

Maybe 20 years ago that hit wouldn't get a look but nowadays, I think any player in the league is missing at least a week for that (it looked like a two-week stay-cation imo). He wasn't even thinking about playing the footy, just saw Tuohy's head and thought he should introduce his shoulder).

Finnius

Maybe take off those crow glasses mate. Straight up dog act from an average footballer.

smart as s

watch him ton up next week, and one touch wonder will say told you so haha.

What_Bear

Hi all,

I need to upgrade a defender. Am I better off bringing in Cripps, Webster, Hurn or t.mac? Or I can swing Sicily back and bring in Wingard, Gray, D.Smith, Buddy?

Thanks for any advice

Russty_

Yeah maybe Sicily back and Wingard or Gray..Hurn's pretty reliable too though, were you including Cripps in your list of defenders or was that a typo?

What_Bear

Woops. Typo Jack Crisp. I have about $530k to spend.

Randomcliche2

Gray

Maverick_

gray IMO

Spanner

What did everyone do with Nat Fyfe last week? Is it worth trading him to Pendlebury/Gaff/Macrae or just hold? I have 5 trades left and Ahern for cover.

Ahmad rubas

i traded in westhoff with the idea of swinging him forward and bringing oliver when he bottoms out. if there is a forward your missing out on atm you should do the same thing and trade macrae in once he bottoms out

Yeahnah

I'm holding him with dusty as my M8, 4 trades left

Russty_

Traded him to Pendles last week when he was 497K, I'd wait for a premo who's cheap, maybe even Sloane next week mate if he gets a decent score this week.

Spanner

I might trade him out for Westhoff this week and in a couple weeks trade out Fritsch to Macrae and swing the Hoff forward to make my team full premo, similar to what Ahmad suggested.

Russty_

Good call, I brought Pendles and Westhoff in last week.

Defying_Madness

Why keep tagging Crouch when Sloane is tearing them to pieces

Russty_

Dangermouse is looking ominous tonight…could he be back to his best?..and it didn't take Sloane to slot straight back in to premo scoring!

Spanner

It's a damn good time for it if he is, that's for sure.

Defying_Madness

I think its more that Sloane isnt getting tagged this week whereas the last 2 weeks he was getting tagged. He looks ominous though, round 22 against North smells like a real stinker which might be something to watch out for

Cobee Bear

I traded Sloane back in…sometimes blind loyalty pays off for at least a week!

TOPHAWK1

Danger putting on a clinic. Boo away folks!

Defying_Madness

To think there was talk here about trading out the man, absolute madness

TOPHAWK1

Batshit crazy. Dangerfield is a cog in any full premo side.

BrownlowBoy

I think Wow said he was gonna trade him.

Russty_

Don't think he did…to his credit.

AuroraBorealis?!

No he definitely did, might have been a joke but i remember him commenting it

Russty_

Oh yeah ..said it but didn't do it…I meant.

AuroraBorealis?!

Oh right, misinterpreted that one, my bad

Russty_

Go Danger!…let's go 150 you gun!

YourDad

Sadly for my team I took the 'captainface' advice and ignored DANGER as captain, did the same damn thing last week with Lloyd last week. thanks guys you've cost me heaps already

Russty_

Gotta trust your own instincts mate, no one can predict the future, Danger hasn't set the world on fire lately.

Rick Grimes

Man up. You make the call in the end.

Marty

S Selwood on Sloane now. Watch his possessions dry up.

Defying_Madness

About time, now Crouch can pick it up

Russty_

You were right about that Marty, hasn't scored since half time

BrownlowBoy

Jacob Dawson has returned to rookie list.

Does that mean he can't play AFL anymore?

Lazza

Yep, unless there is another long term injury..

hedski

Na rookie listed players can play Lazza.

BrownlowBoy

I have a man crush on Sparkle Narkle.

He's got something special.

What_Bear

Thought his name was Farrk

hedski

Get a friggin touch Joel, need a big 2nd half from you.

Russty_

You reckon that hit he copped early affected him Hedski?…he looked a bit groggy. Someone gave him a cheap shot.

BrownlowBoy

The way his arms were raised, I thought he had been knocked out.

Russty_

Yeah looked like he didn't know where he was BB.

Randomcliche2

He was a space cadet after that hit…

Russty_

How good's Tim Kelly?…can't believe he got overlooked in the draft 5 times, that's nuts.

BrownlowBoy

He said he wasn't mature enough to get drafted.

I think he said something along the lines of he would of got spat back out of the AFL system if he was drafted earlier.

Russty_

Should've believed in himself more, he's a gun.

BrownlowBoy

Agree.

As a Geelong fan, I don't want him to go.

But if he does indeed decide to go, I can't complain. He's a genuine super star of the game, and you can't bag a bloke for wanting to return home to his family.

Love you TK x

Holty01

Cant believe all the experts are saying Stephenson will win rookie of the year by a landslide. Id give it to Kelly o would think.

BrownlowBoy

He's not eligible because he's too old!

Otherwise he'd be 100% the favourite.

Russty_

I would've thought Doedee was ahead of Stephenson Holty.

TOPHAWK1

Adelaide has a new Captain. Rory Sloane takes over from Tex Walker………keep "walking" and "walking" Walker.

Russty_

He'll be walking to the tribunal next week lol.

Lazza

Only have 2 players in this game and both have tonned up before 3Q time..👍

Holty01

Same. I assume they are Danger and Laird?

Lazza

Yep

Ja191

watch scott put danger full forward for the whole 4th quarter and his score go down

BrownlowBoy

You were saying?

Ja191

nevermind haha what a beast dangermouse

johnny

has lloyd well n truly sailed is he too expensive now?
Im tossing up between he and crisp still almost 65k difference…
and crisp still VERY consistent for a defender, just not the ceiling.

Russty_

If he's your last upgrade, don't worry about the price I reckon, only points made matter at the end of the season.

Marty

Scott is finally using Danger correctly tonight. Pity I dont have the vc on him.

Lazza

Can you get 10 points for a handball? Should for that from Sloane

Russty_

Depends on how much it affects the game I guess mate, I've seen players score 45 for kicking the winning goal in the past.

Marty

Kelly out for Danger in round 11. I wonder if this has been a successful trade. Kelly has been fantastic this year.

Yeahnah

What to do with Menegola…

Russty_

He's really disappointed this year hasn't he?, and he was top dollar at the start, I thought he was a dead set premo.

Yeahnah

Very frustrating, definitely can go big but seems like it's once every 6 weeks

Russty_

What do you think you'll do with him this week?…he'll only be worth 445K or so after the weekend's over.

Yeahnah

I've only 4 trades left so looks like I'm keeping him, if I have trades leftover come finals I might trade him. Do you have him?

Russty_

No mate, thought he was too expensive at the start, but could've easily gone there, still have Hogan though who's an up and down see-saw player.
You could go Wingard but that burns another trade, depends on why you play I guess, if rank isn't too important maybe better off holding.

pigjumpprusik

Keep him…, what else would you do?

Finnius

I mean the other option is trade..?

Randomcliche2

I Loopholed him with Petracca this week. Alas he is wearing the E hat this week and will not score all going well. . Still can go big though. Wait on an injury to Gaz and he'll be back doing premo things. Alternatively 7+ trades do what you want.

Russty_

Love you Danger, love you Laird, might love you Sloane if one of my mid premos goes down this week!

Maverick_

Last week I VCd beams 148 took it and Gawn went 150 .
Do I take dangers 151 now or roll the dice on an inform Gawn rucking against Jordan Roughead.
Craziness to think I’m even considering giving up a 151. Haha

Ahmad rubas

i think gawn will go above 151 but there is no reason why you shouldnt take 151

Yeahnah

I also have Danger vc, he ended up going up to 158 surely you can't say no to that! Although I do think Gawn is highly likely to go 150+, it's not worth the risk for an extra ~20 points

Ahmad rubas

wow i love scaling ahaha

Maverick_

Just saw he got scaled up! You beauty.. I’ll bank the points! Pretty happy considering I wacked it on him only minutes before the bounce .

pigjumpprusik

Nah, surely you'd want 160 from a captain. 158 just isn't good enough… Jeeez

Maverick_

watch gawn go 160+

Holty01

Tex i think you are in trouble. Love physicality in the game but having eyes on the player and not the ball is just soft. Bloody put your head over the ball and win it.

oliverfisher

Who should I loop with Ahern, Robinson or Billings?

Lazza

Hmmm, is Robinson likely to tag one of Mitchell or Shiels? … . Saints only play Carlton .. Billings could have a day out.. both are likely to outscore Ahern. Shame they are in the same game.

Derek

Billings against Carlton looks good

TBone_9

Really not sure what to do this week. Held Doedee for another week but next week will be upgrading him to Lloyd/Hurn/Crisp/Webster. With 6 trades in the bank is it worth also this week or next trading out Dusty to Kelly/Beams/Pendles or waiting a possible two weeks for Macrae? Just not sure if it’s worth the trade for a luxury sideways trade hahaha. Cheers guys 🙂

Finnius

I'd wait for Macrae T-Bone. Allows you a couple more for injuries as well just in case. Macrae will be a good POD going into finals as well.

nickgonzalez771

Had the V on Laird – surely 133 isn't enough when I've got the C on Gawn, right?

Lazza

Right.

Maverick_

No where near it nick. Roll the dice

pigjumpprusik

A lot of risk for little reward. If Gawn goes big and scores 153, you only gain an extra 20 points. But what if he gets injured like Fyfe or has a poor game, you could loose 100 points

Derek

its Gawn vs Dogs. have been waiting for this all year to see if he will break the SC record

Ricardo

Runs on the board. Gawn might get injured. Take the 133

Cobee Bear

I'd take 133, but depends on who you're playing

The Ranger

Not taking that sort of score is always risky but I'd roll the dice on that one.

Finnius

Crouch to Macrae in two weeks is looking very juicy.

pigjumpprusik

Crouch really disappointing, consistently 30+ touches and can barely ton up

Defying_Madness

Was looking to finally find some form then he got the hand injury. I definitely wont be trading him though

Bang

Got 4 trades left and 1 more upgrade left (Logan Austin), is r worth trading Ridley – Lynch to avoid a 0, then trade Austin to a premo either this week or next week? 2 trades for 4-5 rounds is cutting it fine

What_Bear

Hi all,

Is it worth using 2 trades to get Lloyd but keep Hibberd?

If I wait a week I can turn Hibberd and Rice into T-Mac and Webster

I have 5 trades and $300K

Am I dog chasing bus?

pigjumpprusik

Wait a week. Lloyd clearly the best out of the 4, but I wouldn't want to keep Hibberd. Enough sample size to say that he isn't SC relevant this season.

Marcus

I personally like bring in TMac and Webster. Lloyd has been great but still think 2 good premos is better than 1 great premo and a very average Hibberd

The Ranger

At another stage of the season maybe but I don't think it's worth 2 trades when you only have 5.

Dodge

Got the cash to go Boak-Westhoff. Then again, could go Rice-Lynch to give me the cash for Spargo-Mundy next week leaving Boak as M9/F7.

First option gets rid of my weakest 'premium' for the best available, whereas second option provides coverage / loophole ability.

Thoughts? Need to win over the next few weeks to cement finals spots in main leagues.

The Ranger

Its a luxury trade so it depends how many you have left.
Sort your onfield team first then the M9/F7 if you can.

Marcus

Who to bench out of McLean, Wingard and Franklin?

Ricardo

McLean. Hasn't recovered since having his head caved in.

Cobee Bear

Franklin has been pretty hopeless as well, not getting good supply from the midfield

Maverick_

franklin. watch tarrant and thompson shut him down

Marcus

Yeah good call, think I'll do that thanks mate!
Murphys law he will score 180 now

BigAl_15

Who should I get for my last premo out of Wingard, Breust, Hoff or Heeney?

Derek

Heeney is very good at football. however he will be alot cheaper in two weeks.

Wingard and Breust you are chasing points and paying too much for them.

The Ranger

If money is no problem then Heeney, Hoff, Wingard, Breust in that order.

Ricardo

Heeney might struggle in first game back from concussion. I'd go Hoff

The Ranger

Bloody hell there's some big scores being predicted this week!
Hats off to anyone who picked Dangers VC, nice start to the round.

hedski

Yeah I did mate, playing you in the JR Faithful.
Selwood and Menagola let me down though.

The Ranger

You've nailed the VC at least, I'm hoping Cripps can get a big one tonight.
Crouch was ordinary for me, might try and sideways him to Macrae in a week or two.

WithAllDueRespect

Yep Danger finally nailed the VC for me! Last night's game was my only captain loophole chance with Coffield my only non player this round.

hedski

Cripps done real good Ranger.

The Ranger

Gonna be really pi55ed off if you win by 2…

Teckst

Savage to Lloyd?

Henry

Yes if plenty of trades left

Cobee Bear

Yes

Jace

Savage or Mcgovern to Lloyd?

Floz

No

Cliffy

Help guys:

In need of finishing my Forwards this week most likely, haven't done any trades yet but currently my squad is looking like this:

DEF: Lloyd, Simpson, Yeo, Laird, Howe, Sicily (Austin, Redman)
MID: Mitchell, Oliver, Gaff, Cripps, Merrett, Martin, Coniglio, Boak (Holman, Philips, Ahern)
RUCK: Gawn, Martin (King)
FWD: Heeney, McLean, Westhoff, Walters, Smith, Fritsch (Guelfi, Ryan)

Should I go safe with Gray for F6 position, or maybe a POD in Gunston for that spot?

Cheers guys

Cliffy

Also have only $18,200 and 8 trades coming into this round, for extra info.

Cobee Bear

I'd go gray, or look at upgradin Boakvia Holman > Sier or Austin > Lynch. Gives yu extra DEF cover and an elite MID like Kelly

Cliffy

Cheers mate, I'm thinking Lynch as probably just the better option than Sier in the long run since Bevo has been fine to play the kids all season, and that the Dogs can't really make finals from here most likely.

Cobee Bear

You also have pretty good bench cover with Giro and Ahern, you could even consider upgrading Boak to Pendles or similar

Cobee Bear

Ed Phillips I mean sorry

Hawks

I'd go Austin to Lynch to generate $168k.

Then go Holman to Beams, E.Curnow or Wines

WithAllDueRespect

Beams.

Marty

Trade Guelfi to W Power swapping Boak to the fwd line then get a premo like Zorko Beams Sidebum or Crouch. Then if Boak is not performing replace him later on.

Ryan

5 trades left. Backline is complete except for Savage. Have 500k to spend if I decide to get rid of him. Should I trade him to McDonald or Brayshaw?

Cobee Bear

Depends on how you match up in your leagues, I'd wait and see how he goes if you are locked in to your top 8's

BrownlowBoy

Thoughts on Brad Lynch's job security?

Cobee Bear

Takes the game on a lot and I reckon Bevo likes that about him, hopefully good!

WithAllDueRespect

I reckon good. He looks settled and takes game on which is the way the Bulldogs want to play but don't always.

Big fact funt

Who do I put on ground jjk or fritz

Cobee Bear

Fritz I reckon, but it's a tough call

Big fact funt

Or buddy

Finnius

Buddy and Fritsch for me

Big fact hunt

That’s where I was thinking thanks guys

BrownlowBoy

Trengove is out so make sure you don't bring him in!

Cobee Bear

Pretty unlucky ommission

Ahmad rubas

Rice late in man im happy I didn't loophole laird would of been stuck with 130 on the bench

Lazza

For who?

Ahmad rubas

i had cole D7 and rice D8 so laird E in case he gets injured and drops a 50. that being said i wouldnt be confident in cole beating 50 so it wasnt that hard of a decision

Ahmad rubas

Would of been smart to put the E on rice instead of cole.
He has scored more in a quarter than cole will in a whole match

BrownlowBoy

Who even wins tonight?

Lazza

🤔 Who cares 😴

Russty_

The (not so) mighty Saints of course mate!..:), apparently Tickets are dirt cheap for this game lol, not surprised.

Pman

Given how poor both team are I wouldn't be surprised if it's a draw! That said I think the Saints will win in what will be an ugly and dull game of footy.
