SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 4

Published by Kev on

Is it just me or does this season already feel like week 15 and we’ve just been chewed up and spat out by the byes? Injuries, suspensions, underperforming premiums, and several rookies already looking like they’ve hit the wall are testing our resolve to remain calm. There’s no such thing as a quick fix in SuperCoach, as we say, ‘it’s a marathon, not a sprint” so keeping your head is paramount at the moment. That said, who doesn’t love contemplating a good complicated trade scenario to distract yourself from the boring 9 till 5 life?

This week water coolers all over the land were dominated by the Dusty saga. Questions regarding the severity of act aside, do they not have cameras in Sydney? How can there be 17 different angles of Cox tangling with Grimes the other week but all we’ve got is  grainy footage filmed on a Nokia 3310 from 80 metres away? Then there was Dusty’s “gesture” to (presumably) Shane Mumford. Now I’m not some fancy big city lawyer, but you don’t need to be a body language expert to decode that one. The AFL issued a please explain over the incident.

As always, big week by the boys. Damo has overtaken the podcast this week and I, for one, welcome our new West Australian overlord. Things are heating up in the rookie department as everyone is falling over. Get in inside word on who is pushing their case in Barron’s rookie report. Nailing your captain is key to a decent score in these early rounds, check out Damo’s captain article over here, and last, but certainly not least, you can click here to get on, in, and around Magnificent Matty’s cheat sheet

The News

As U2 famously sung, “Thursday, Bloody Thursday” (don’t fact check that). The Swans host the Dees tonight and the Dees have given us Gawn owners reason to break out in cold sweats by selecting Braydon Preuss for his club debut. Neal-Bullen has been dropped. Billy Stretch is in for Kade Kolo…???…nij (head knock). The Swans are handing a debut to Justin McInerney (DEF – 117.3k). His pace and willingness to take the game on won himself plenty of fans on the back of 15 disposals in JLT2. While it didn’t translate to a massive SC score (51SC), he’s one to watch. Veteran Kieran Jack will play his first game of the year. McVeigh (quad) and Hayward (jaw) are the ones to make way.

Collingwood have dropped tagger Levi Greenwood for Travis Varcoe tonight. Jason Johannisen will play his first game of the season, Lewis Young is the one to make way. Jack Henry is back for the Cats after a week out 

Callan Ward will lineup for the Giants for the first time this year. Essendon have dropped Aaron Francis for some reason in one of four changes. Cale Hooker is amongst the rather uninspiring ins. Allen Christensen will have his first run for the year at Brisbane. Some big changes at the Tigers as injuries and suspension continue to hit the club hard. Trent Cotchin and Jayden Short are injured, Dusty is rubbed out for a week, and they’ve dropped three more. Dylan Grimes returns from suspension. Houli and Josh Caddy return from injuries, and there’s a debut for Jack Ross (MID – 117.3k). Shai Bolton (FWD – 146.6k) and Liam Baker (FWD – 162.1k) are cheaper options to keep an eye on if they impress. Port will go in unchanged for the match. For the derby out West, Nat Fyfe is out despite my famous chicken soup and around the clock rubdowns. Lachie Schultz is back in. Josh Rotham is straight out for the returning Liam Duggan. Bailey Scott is being “rested” for North after doing nothing for us for two weeks. Paul Ahern finally gets a game. The struggling Bryce Gibbs has been dropped by the Crows.    

Only the two games on Sunday. There’s a possible debut for Liam Stocker (MID – 126.3k) at Carlton. Charlie Curnow is back in after a week out. Gold Coast have added four players to their squad for the game. There’s no listed outs for the Saints and Hawthorn yet, but you’d expect at least one change for each as Jack Steven and Jarryd Roughead will return. 

The House of Evil

Rookie prices are beginning to shift so it’s important now to not only keep track of when their breakeven matches up their average (a sign you should trade a rookie) but to do the same with premiums who have copped a price loss. Watch for when their breakeven becomes achievable again so you can snag them at their lowest price point.

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

Subject to selection – Few unlikely names
Bold – On the bubble (2 games)
* – Played just the one game

These premiums come with Potassium Benzoate (that’s bad)

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

Lachie Neale is the obvious choice here but that 646k price tag may be out of reach for some. The weekly rookie lotto in our forward and defensive lines is beginning to hurt and needs to be addressed. If you didn’t start Lachie Whitfield this season you probably considered him at some point, and now you’re kicking yourself you didn’t bite the bullet. Other than repeated instances of leather poisoning, an average of almost 700m gained a week is whatever the standard is above elite. 11 marks, 6.6 R50’s and 4.6 I50’s a game over the first 3 weeks, Lachie is doing it all and hardly spending any time on the bench. He’ll be above 600k very soon. 

Hey Now, You’re A Draftstar!

The duck was finally broken last week! The lineup finished a respectable 53 points off the pace, settling for a 74th place finish. A $5.95 win if you entered into the $2 mini. 

RUC

Fremantle gave up 122DS to Rowan Marshall last week so I’m all over Tom Hickey (FWD / 10k) here who is a similar type of mobile ruck. Against Rory Lobb he should be able to take advantage. Speaking of Lobb (FWD / 11.3k), I don’t mind him as a solo ruck. We saw at GWS this suited him well and he put up 95 last week.   

On a single game slate Nathan Vardy (7.7k) will either tank your lineup with a 30DS or have a random value smashing game. If you’re entering multiple lineups chuck a dart in his direction but otherwise avoid.  

DEF

Adam Cerra (MID / 8.8k) stepped it up last week after Fyfe was hurt and has been earmarked this week by Ross to do the same. Taylin Duman (9.6k) played intercepter last weekend against the Saints, pulling in 7 marks (4 intercepts). I love watching Oscar Allen (FWD / 6.9k) play. We’ve yet to see him have a value crushing game but he’ll rip a game open one day.

West Coast are only second to Richmond in conceding points to running defenders this year. If you’ve played Luke Ryan (10k) in DFS before you’ll know just how frustrating he can be, but he went B-A-N-A-N-A-S last week with 136DS. Shannon Hurn (11.8k) has 4 scores over 90 in his past 5 against Freo. If he can hit those heights 11.8k is a steal for a player of his consistency. Brad Sheppard (12k) is $200 more than Hurn and has scored between 85-95 to start the season.

MIDS

Nat Fyfe is a massive loss for Freo. Looking at some in/out stats from 2018, David Mundy (FWD / 12.5k) averaged 12DS more in games without Fyfe. Ed Langdon (13k), Brad Hill (14.4k), and Michael Walters (11.6k) all saw drops between 10 and 13DS. Langdon is a much improved player though, so I don’t mind his selection. Travis Colyer (FWD / 8.8k) has had a nice start to his career in Fremantle colours and should see a bump without Fyfe. 

On the other side of the ledger, there’s nothing like a derby to play yourself back into form, Elliot Yeo (14k) has a 3 game average of 118 against West Coast and should be low owned after an underwhelming start to 2019. Jack Redden (13.6k) is in the same boat, a three game average of 125DS against Freo. Andrew Gaff (16.2k) is a Draftstars stud. If you can afford to pay up for him get on board. Bailey Banfield is an interesting out, he kept Luke Shuey (13.7k) quiet last year

FWD

Any off the DPP guys (Lobb, Mundy, Colyer) missed the cut elsewhere you can put them here. Not many more forwards I like. Freo have struggled against medium forwards so far this season, giving up 84DS to Jade Gresham and 103DS to Alex Sexton. Jack Petruccelle (6.8k) has had a reasonable fortnight and is a good salary saver.

Going with your lock of the week, Whitfield, traded out the sleeveless one, Simpson.

SC_Kev7

The Lock is notorious for making me a rotten liar. Don't let me down, Lachie!

Connor

Is Libba a must-have? Trying to stick fat with Dunkley but its an easy DPP swing with cash in hand…

SC_Kev7

I'm in the stick fat camp. Dunkley's 84 average is not the worst. Obv not getting those midfield minutes he was (despite Bevo promising us he would!) but he's a midfield injury away from stepping into a larger role

John G

Hey guys need help deciding.

Cousins to LIBBA ?
Or
Atkins to LIBBA ?

SC_Kev7

If you must, Atkins

Steeeve

Anyone moving on Hore? Will kick myself if Lockhart/Wagner put up a great score and lock themselves in the team for a few weeks…

Danners

I think it is important to have rookies generating cash early so moving Hore to one of those two would be a good move if you haven't used many trades

SC_Kev7

Seeing how Stack goes myself

Derek

The Lockhart DPP is very interesting

Probably even more interesting if I can swing Duurmsa into guts. I wouldn’t even mind if Lockhart didn’t even play, gives me a rookie loophole across 3 lines. Very interesting.

Steeeve

Any chance Hore gets another run soon aka before byes when he can plump up? Is a travelling emergency

Rivo

Yes Kev, panic set in on Sunday night.

Have Fyfe, Dusty and T.Kelly.
Don’t have Neale, Whitfield or Boak.

Of these, Dusty is the likely trade. I can bench the other 2 for a week.

1. Dusty to Boak via DPP swing (T.Kelly to mids);
2. Dusty & S.Collins to Neale & Lockhart (M9);
3. Dusty & Setterfield via DPP to Whitfield & Moore/Schultz.

Which one?

Derek

Dusty is only missing ONE week.

Fyfe is out this week and maybe back the next week.

Kelly is playing this week.

Can you hold them?

Are you trading zdudty because he is out or just because?

Rivo

Dusty has been awful. Can’t keep him at M4 with that output & cant see him getting near Top 10 from here.

Want to hold the other 2.

Krups

Dusty can get stuffed. Dont care if he was playing. Hellloo Neale.

FirstTimeTrader

After holding the trigger last week Dusty has to go. 30 trades left. I have two options:
A) Out: Dusty, Cousins In: Neale and Miers (swing into FWD)
B) Out: Dusty, Cousins In: Libba and Dahl (swing into FWD)

A means I have Neale, B gives me a better overall team. I know that Libba will need to go at some stage or could be a M9. Dahl would be a keeper.
Other trade out option is B.Smith (DEF).

Hawks

Get Neale. He is a keeper that you wont have to trade up later.

Think Libba & Dahl are likely both cash friendly stepping stones

Flynn

Fix my team please

Simmo, Williams, mills, Smith, Clark, duursma (Burgess, hore)

Macrae, fyfe, Oliver, treloar, sheed, b.crouch, Walsh, Constable (butters, scott, gibbons)

Grundy, westhoff (clark)

Danger, Dunkley, Moore, drew, Parker, setters (petrucelle, shlensog)

270 k in the kitty
Am thinking of going
Simmo- Whitfield, gibbons- Mumford via dpp which will make my forward line stronger and get setters off the field

Any other options would be appreciated

Derek

Don’t mind the Gibbons to Mummy

Simmo to Whitfield is luxury trading. How many trades have made already?

Flynn

Have only made one trade so far

Derek

It’s tough to trade a premium, especially when they bounce back the next week.

I have made one trade, Mundy out last week. Was doing Simpson like numbers, even worse. Fyfe goes down, Mundy steps up, bang 109, plus Fyfe out this week, Mundy more TOG. Boom, he is going big again I just know it.

As long as Simpson doesn’t do a Mundy, you will be ok.

PS. Ward back this week, Pushes Taranto out of guts. Does this then effect Whitfield’s role?

Maverick_

Mills to Lloyd/tuohey/whitfield ?
I feel simmo can bounce back you chose him as a keeper. Mills just isn’t cutting it at all and scoring history/job role says he won’t..

Derek

Mills scored 109 last week was ok

McVeigh to miss months. He will hopefully get a running role with kick ins. might even get to the midfield once Grundy gets back

BrownlowBoy

Duursma not trading with the main group at Port training.

Freogirl

Are you there.. What’s Duursma’s problem. And how’s Rocky looking on the field?

BrownlowBoy

Port will have a press conference at 12.30, should be able to find out more about both then.

Freogirl

Cheers.

BrownlowBoy

that's meant to be training*

Holty01

Cheers BB. Will be interesting to see what transpires

Connor

Latest inside info I have is he's still playing, has pulled up a bit sore the past few weeks though…

Derek

Port half back’s will have a field day against Tigers this week. I hope he plays and cashes in.

Danners

Hi lads
Debating on who are priorities to get in this week
My team currently
DEF: Laird, Sicily, Whitfield, Scrimshaw, Clark, Duursma (Burgess, Hore)
MID: Cripps, Oliver, Fyfe, Treloar, Sloane, Walsh, Constable, Setterfield (Gibbons, Scott, Atkins)
RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (Bines)
FWD: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Drew, Schultz, Parker (Balta, Petruccelle)
$2,700 in the bank and 30 trades

I'm considering going
Fyfe to Neale
Setterfield to Lockhart
Leaves me with $35,600

Not one for trading out premos but I don't want to make the mistake with Neale like Macrae last year. Setterfield to Lockhart is to give me a bit coin. Not sure on what to do otherwise
Thoughts?

Hawks

Keep Fyfe, he will likely be out 1 week, and will be top 8 at seasons end (at least by average).

Nice to get Neale, but try and find another way

TommyC99

Not concerned setterfield still has coin to make?

paul

Neale is on fire and I knew he would being the general in the midfield at Brisbane.In for a very big year, bonus is they
have there backs up winning games.

Corey

Haven’t used any trades so far this season is it worth downgrading Hore to Lockhart then Dunkley to Boak and next week downgrade a midfield rookie (likely Gibbons) to Stack
Or
Just wait and see and stick fat with Dunkley for now

Holty01

Contemplating the same Corey. Boak and Dunkley are playing opposite roles to what I thought they would play.

John

Thinking o going Ridley and Setterfield (both under performers) to Marshall (three games +100 SC) and Stack (via DPP swings etc)

Can someone give good reasons why this is a dumb idea?

Brn

People have been burnt before bringing in a rookie early.
Its risky but i've done it a few times and it has paid off.
Risky – yes, but if he plays there isnt a problem. It is simply taking a risk and shouldn't be a 'banned trade'

dontblushbaby

Jack Ross to debut for the Tigers

Alferton

Thoughts please:

Option 1:Greene out Burgess swung forward and Lockhart in. Dusty out Neale in.

Option 2: Greene out Rozee in. Dusty out Bont in. Can’t afford to go to Neale.

Thanks.

Maverick_

2 only because I like rozee JS and JS means cash rises $$$. Bont looks real good this year

Brn

Dusty to bont is too close to sideways for me. Bont can have some down scores too, and think he will drop a few 70ish scores like last year.

If you dont mind sacrificing the trade, neale is best

Hawks

I'd go option 1.

Its about getting the best premos in as soon as possible. Neale is definitely top 8 mid, Bont may be?

I'd back the sure thing, in fact I did Dusty to Neale last week.

BrownlowBoy

Michael Voss said Duursma is okay, so should be right to play fingers crossed!

Rocky also good to go.

Richie Porte

Dusty must go, Libba or T Kelly.

FCAbel

Libba

Ken

Do we hold Fyfe? Or trade down to libba…

How much cash will Fyfe lose if he comes back doing average

Ja191

price is only relevant once you trade him out. 169 breakeven and he could easily come back and bang out two 150s, hold for me only out the 1 week.

Maverick_

Agree with JA, hold.

Brn

I'm happy getting rid of fyfe. Im ranked well and can't afford it. Trading to Neale and think its a perfectly acceptable move

Michael

Jayden Short & Gibbons to Lockhart (DEF) and Libba? Leaves 100k in the bank.

Will probably have to downgrade either Scott or Atkins next week to Stack

Also got Hore, however if i downgrade him I’m unable to bring in Libba for Short, therefore would need to get Rich (or any forward/defender for max 470k)

Michael

Also, the trade will put Butters on my bench and move Setterfield on field.

Maverick_

I’m not sold on Lockharts JS or scoring potential his DPP is handy but for me that’s all I like about him..

Derek

If Fyfe played this week, Hutchings was waiting for him. If he plays next week, De Boer is waiting. Might be a good couple of weeks to miss.

I think he will be back next week, but might struggle to score with after effects of concussion and the De Boer tag.

If he misses 1, then come back with a 90 and 100, his price will be around $540k. Nice pick up in round 8 or 9. Tiger, Essendon, Lions and Pies before a really nice Round 12 bye.

Dusty to Libba this week will Bank $140k

Libba should price rise to about $500k by round 8. Libba to Fyfe will cost $40k. Net cost of $100k.

Compared to (hypothetically) Dusty to Fyfe now, cost $80k. Net savings of $180k, but cost an extra trade.

Is a trade worth $180k?

Add the Libba points this round instead of a rookie, say 50pts.

$180k and 50pts for a trade? Or is it 2 trades if you expect a Dusty to come good and be a keeper.

Shake_n_bake

100% right Fyfe misses a week, 1st week back at GWS drops 30k in week back then probably another 20k second week back. I would rather jump ship, doughnut this week like u said maybe a 90-100 week against GWS. I cant hold…welcome back maybe later it will cost myself 1 trade but need league wins!

TommyC99

With the Libba bit, where did you get the net cost of 100k from? Probably a dumb question but trying to wrap my head around it as I’m considering dusty – libba this week

Derek

i have Dusty and was doing the maths if i wanted to go Dusty to fyfe (via Libba). I think Fyfe is an upgrade from Dusty.

trade Dusty to Libba this week, then trade libba to Fyfe in 4-5 weeks. what would that cost.

First trade puts $140k in my bank.

second trade will cost me $40k

Derek

or just go Dusty to Fyfe now, will cost $80k.

total cash savings of $180k

but spend an extra trade.

is a trade worth $180k…. plus the points i will get by not having a rookie this week?

TommyC99

I’ve seen a lot of people comparing a trade worth to around 150-200k. Is that right? If so I think it is worth it

Ja191

i think dusty made de boer look a lot better then he is. The likes of danger and fyfe should destroy him

Tommo76

Hey guys, so like many i have to trade out Dusty. Which of these should i go with.
– Libba
– Merrett
– TKelly
– Sloane (but would have to trade Hore to make it happen)

Libba is probably the obvious one from these. Could it be considered chasing points though? Merett is a nice POD but can he shake a tag? Anfd Kelly is sideways trading to a guaranteed top 3 fwd? Any feedback would be great!

SC_Kev7

Depends on your take of Libba. He a top 8 mid? Feel you've missed the boat on him now. TKelly from the list (assuming he plays).

Tommo76

I dont see him as top 8-10 mid, but i feel with a -55 BE he can get to 500k. Is that worth it?

FearTheBeard

Do I cut Rocky for Libba? More cash to make as a stepping stone and wasn't good signs prior to his KO with Wines back…

FearTheBeard

Plus More chance he could be a keeper if he stays healthy?

Brn

You have rocky. Keep him

FearTheBeard

I understand though I need to make a trade to make 10-15k cash to get Neale.

I could go early on Stack and rid myself of Hore.

That said I'm weighing up Rocky was kod. He was spudding it up before hand (as soon as Wines was in). Libba has a -55 be (think rockys is 100?) bad logic?

Hawks

Wouldn't trade Rocky to Libba.

Not against trading Rocky, but id either go for a Premo, or downgrade to a cash cow (like Stack next week maybe).

Should be part of painting the fence

Brn

Id sacrifice the trade by ridding of one of your worst rookies to a better rookie for the extra cash/neale trade.

Brn

Libba has potential to score low.

Controversial, but if hore isnt named i'd trade him to stack early

Brn

Oliver, gawn or lloyd VC this week?
Has to be one

Hawks

Lloyd, no McVeigh, and the way the ball has been coming out of the Melbourne forward line, Lloyd should get stacks of it.

Derek

It might be possible for Lloyd to even get more of the kick ins.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Must have finished just a little behind you last week Kev as also cracked it for some cold hard in draftstars.

Gonna stick with dunk me thinks and probably Brodie as well.

SC_Kev7

Well done, Trigga! I'm usually awful at single slates, so it was good to get a win. Same, keeping Dunks. Don't have Brodie but I'd be keeping him too

Goat____23

Who do i trade in for Hore… Lockhart or Wagner

Ja191

neither keep him til someone better comes up

Russty_

Hore's in, Lockhart out injured.

Shake_n_bake

Hore to be late in

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Hope so mate.

Shake_n_bake

Would you start him if he plays Trigg?

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Not much of a sample size to go on.

Smaller ground and contested possession should suit him.

Luckily dont have make that call..

Shake_n_bake

Word is Melb to make a couple of late changes

Russty_

Melbourne could make as many as two late changes for tonight’s crunch clash against Sydney Swans.

Mature-age forward Jay Lockhart has a back issue, while gun backman Neville Jetta is also battling some soreness.

Defender Marty Hore and creative utility Charlie Spargo are on standby from the emergency list.

Lockhart and Jetta are both likely to face last-minute tests in a bid to prove their fitness before tonight’s warm-up.

This is from Herald Sun 30 minutes ago.

Brn

Lockart could burn a few slow coaches if a late out.

Russty_

You're not wrong Brn, especially if they got him for Hore and Hore plays well.

Westy

I got Lockhart for Hore the other week.
I also Heen-ed myself in time for Round 2.
#donttradepremosunlesstheyresimpson

Finnius

VC Gawn or Clarry? My only loop is Suite.

Derek

I'm really looking forward to watching JPK and Oliver go head to head. The old beast and the new beast.

They could both get 150 or they could both get 60.

Swans might be happy for them to go head to head and give some attention to brayshaw.

Ja191

who do you think harmes and hewett go to? oliver and jpk i'd think

nankthetank

Is Lockhart just a placeholder for May until he returns?

TommyC99

They play different positions? Lockhart is a small forward and May is a tall defender

nankthetank

Whoops thought lockhart has been playing back

Derek

reminder to everyone:

Gawn plays tonight.

Grundy plays Friday night:

anyone with Gundy/Gawn as Rucks and using R3 (Bines) as your C loophole. make sure you have Gawn on bench WITH E tonight, so you can still use Bines as your loophole C.

Derek

unless you are holding Fyfe or Dusty, don't worry

Holty01

Thanks Derek

Funkhouser

timely reminder, cheers Derek almost missed that one.

Derek

and don't forget: No REVERSING AFTER TONIGHT LOCKOUT

(there is always someone)

UpBeat

Anyone concerned with big Max Gawn now Preuss is playing? and why the f**k is Preuss playing?

Russty_

A little bit, I read he'll be playing a bit more down back but that might not be a bad thing, he tends to get down there anyway, and all over the ground.
Still think he'll get plenty of Ruckwork (hopefully)..but also, they might need him more down back, it is a worry.
If Preuss spuds it, he could be out just as quick.

UpBeat

True Rusty but IF Preuss plays well sharing the ruck, which he'll be very keen to do, will this effect Gawn long term?

I'm actually thinking of trading Gawn while his price is big, and bring in a cheaper ruck and Neale with the cash. I need to cover the loss of Fyfe without losing Fyfe..

Russty_

That'd be a big call mate, it's impossible to know how Preuss will affect Gawny yet, he could make up for the lack of hitout/ clearance points taking contested marks down back and getting more kicks.
Guess you could get Mumford or someone, who would you trade out for Neale?
Still can't see Gawn not being a top 2 Ruckman, even with Preuss there.

UpBeat

I'm looking at Mummy. I have Gibbons or Atkins I can trade to get Neale, I also have $175k in the bank.

Blueth

cos he's a sherrin eating ogre

Derek

Preuss is there becuase TMac is getting the best defender now Jess is gone. Bring in a bigger bloke, they might free Tom up. maybe.

UpBeat

So Gawn will probs stay clear of the backline while Preuss is there? Preuss will ruck the back half.

Derek

other way. will be like Cox and Grundy.

Preuss will play forward and do the forward line ruck and gawn will play midfield and defense

Tristan

Is it worth trading Brodie Smith to Jake Lloyd as I have the cash? Smith hasn't set the world on fire.
Also don't have Neale so would have to pass on him, though would probably need to trade fyfe to get him.

Derek

give it another week. Brodie still has a bit of cash to make. where Lloyd is about as expensive as he will be, shouldn't go up much, get him later.

Greg

worth trading Dunkley to whitfield? (swapping moore to fwd line)

Benjiherb

Yeap dunkley is gonna drop in price Whitfield is going up an will continue to score higher than dunkleys not getting a run in the guts.

Saritz

I hate sideways trading of premo's. But I actually think its not a bad move. Especially if you didnt use 2 corrective trades after round 3

Benjiherb

Marty HORE in with a late change .

Hank

Dusty for whitfield or Clayton Oliver?

nankthetank

Marty Hore in

Rick Grimes

Yep, wonder how many people have flicked him and don't realise. Probably pump out a ton now. SC Gods are cruel.

Lazza

Even funnier if they traded in Lockhart .. sorry, I shouldn’t laugh …

JohnDJ59

It wasn't worth the trade anyway, so they will get what they deserve.

Saritz

Glad i stuck with that Hore

Hawk131415

Who has him on field??

Hawk131415

on 28 already

redherringfc

I chucked the E on him, now I have to hope for a late out somewhere else or Scrimshaw to not make the cut (although that wouldn’t be any good anyway)

Maverick_

i went hore to scrimshaw last week. oops

RoyWetard

So I was going to trade Lockhart in this week with the idea to be able to get Lloyd next week. Do I trade in Stack now with the hope Lockhart comes back next week and if that happens bring him in next week (or some other rookie that shows up) to get Lloyd? How about Wagner?

Michael

Stewart or Libba to be traded in for Short?

Libba means I may need to bring Miers in via Moore's DPP, pushing Butters to the bench also. Would leave 100k in the bank.

Stewart means I will bring in either Wagner or Stack, however Butters stays on field. Would have no money in the bank.

Lazza

Greenwood out… so no tag on Macrae

Shake_n_bake

Said he’ll be out. To slow with him in need more pace especially going fwd at times

Lazza

Bailey Scott is out ..

Krups

Yep. Good. Needed a koophole

Yeahnah

Hmm.. Scott and Fyfe out means I'll have to field either Atkins or Gibbons..hopefully doesnt hurt me too much

Saritz

If Stocker is named, likely Gibbons is out. So it will make your choice easier 🙂

Shake_n_bake

Could only be Aitkins dont think Gibbons makes 22

Lazza

Toby Greene misses again

Lazza

Jack Ross named for the Tigers… Liam Stocker in the Blues squad..

hedski

Gibbons out?

PeeJay

Dusty for Libba? Thinking Libba might be a keeper as M8 or 9. Thoughts?

Jim

Yep take the risk, and make the coin!

JEL

What's up with Gibbs?
Doubt many have got him but strange he is 'omitted'

Russty_

I think he's just been playing crap, I just omitted him from my draft side lol

hedski

I'm nibbling at that bait.

Russty_

Go for it mate..he's a free agent I think…maybe?…dunno lol

hedski

Waiver wire from the little I can work out.
Gotta be better than Vardy.

Russty_

Yeah Josh Bootsma is better than Vardy

Ok, team news explains:

Gibbs will run out onto Woodville Oval for the SANFL Crows on Saturday afternoon, replaced in the senior side by Cam Ellis-Yolmen.

Crows coach Don Pyke said Ellis-Yolmen deserved his opportunity off the back of an impressive and consistent pre-season, coupled with a dominant SANFL performance where he collected a game-high 36 disposals (24 contested possessions), nine clearances and seven tackles.

“Bryce's form has been patchy and not at the usual consistent high standard that both he and we expect," Pyke said.

Worth trading scott to wagner?

Russty_

Not sure cause Scott was rested, not omitted..wondering if his first round score was a one off though.

hedski

Scott has plenty of cash to make, listed as rested so should be back next week

Ray

What to do with Fyfe?

No trade – means i have to play Atkins onfield

1 Trade – Straight swap Fyfe for Bont

2 Trades – Fyfe and Scott out, Macrae and Wagner in ( wagner on bench)

PeeJay

Keep Fyfe, only out for 1 week and easily in top 10 mids at seasons end

George S

I nervously traded Fyfe for Neale. That was a serious head knock and it may take 2-3 weeks for his head to fully clear. Maybe a trade in target after the byes.

Matt

Darling to Worpel? Would be my first trade of the year.

hedski

I'm holding, if I was trading I'd go Gresham over Worpedo.

Barks

Getting rid off Westoff for Dalhouse that would give me enough to upgrade Goldstein to Gawn is that a wise move or not.

kinglear009

Definitely stick with Goldy. No trading there.

As for Westhoff, perhaps he needs to go, it's really your call.

Russty_

Goldy could go well against O'Brien this week but Westhoff has to go now if you're gonna do it…he's losing bulk money.

Barks

Sounds like good advice, sticking with Goldy. Westoff has gone for Dalhouse and I'll bank the extra cash for a later upgrade.

RoyWetard

Trade Scott with a slight chance at getting Lloyd next week (cap issues) or trade Setterfield as the added 11k would ease my chances of getting Lloyd and hope Scott comes back?

James

What on earth to do with Greene now? i've waited all this time for him

Russty_

Punt him mate, he could miss 6 weeks for all you know, and then what'll he be like?..forget him he's a write off. Bank some cash.

hedski

Studs up to the face for bad Toby.

Lazza

I was only holding him till this week .. he’s gonesky… now I have to decide what to do with $587k in the kitty

Russty_

Wish I had those problems Laz

Lazza

But I’m still a d1ckhead … before Scott was out I had to pick between Gawn or Oliver as my VC as I only had Sweet to loop… guess who I chose .. then not only did I not change the VC, I didn’t think to look at Heeney to replace Greene.. yet I had him in my Trading spreadsheet … Rule #1 … don’t take phone calls from your daughter within 30 mins of the lock out… doh

Russty_

That's it mate..turn off the phone half an hour before bouncedown.

derek

i feel your pain mate. double so that you still have Greene

Lazza

Yep.. .. and what do I do ? Go to Kelly now or wait another week for Heeney.. still watching Boak, and Daniel… and not ready for Menegola who will drop a few more $$.. I like Daniel too ..
What a total stuff up..
I don’t need MIDs at this stage .. have Macrae, Cripps, Neale, MCrouch, Oliver and Libba..

So it’s probably Kelly.. or loophole Greene and wait..
