SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 7

Published by Kev on

Gil and his cronies have finally restored order and we are kicking off the round on a Friday. The rollercoaster that is my trash filled side is becoming a little less trashier with upgrade season upon us over the next few weeks. Like with all good rollercoasters though, lurking behind the scintillating high of trading in a fallen premium are those gosh darn bye rounds ready to pants ya and humiliate you.

So before you go rummaging through the bargain bin to unearth the next hidden SuperCoach gem, do an assessment of your side and plan your next 5-6 trades wisely. Can’t split Laird v Sicily this week? Sicily’s round 12 bye is golden. Laird can wait for a bit if it stops you from being too heavy in Rory’s round 14 bye. Hit up your preferred breakeven supplier and give yourself a rough idea of when rookies will be peaking and when the premiums you want will be at their lowest. Of course if you don’t give a stuff about the byes and are just taking a #YOLO approach this year (again…) do whatever you want, I’m not your mother. 

Everybody remembers the yvan eht noij Simpsons episode right? Well the podcast this week is a bit hcir leinad ni edart this week. Do we trust a burnman…?. Barron has cracked out another fabulous Around the Grounds. My idiocy in picking a captain last week cost me a head-to-head against Patch. Every time we match up my team shits the bed! Get the good oil on the good captain choices this week with Damo. Statty Matty is all over the rookie situation this week in his weekly cheat sheet.  

The News

It just wouldn’t be a weekend of footy with several curveballs being thrown in our direction. Lachie Whitfield is out as expected, but joining him will be popular rookies Jack Scrimshaw and Charlie Constable. Both guys have made us a ton of cash so far so there’s temptation to trade both, but as Matty pointed out in his cheat sheet Jack Scrimshaw is close to maxing out anyway.

Tonight, Ben Reid and Jamie Elliot return for injured Cox and the omitted Travis Varcoe. Karl Amon replaces Robbie Gray, who is out for a month with a broken hand. 

Josh Wagner is back for the Dees. Shaun Burgoyne is fit for the Hawks and Dylan Moore returns to play his second game. The suspended James Cousins joins the previously mentioned Scrimshaw on the sidelines. The Saints have done all sorts: Darragh Joyce gets his second game, Rowan Marshall returns and there’s a debut for former Pie Jonathon Marsh (DEF – 163.1k). Jack Steven is among the outs. Isaac Cumming (DEF – 173.7k) will play his first game for the year at the Giants. The Swans have shuffled the deck, recalling Will Hayward and Kieran Jack. Bubble boy James Rowbottom has been omitted. No changes at Brisbane. Jack Redden is fit at West Coast and comes straight in for Jarrod Brander. Anthony Miles is among the ins at the Suns, who are resting Jack Lukosius. No change at the Dogs. Shai Bolton is back at the Tigers after being dropped last week, Jack Riewoldt will be out for the next few months. 

There’s a laundry list of changes for Carlton vs Norf. Kade Simpson, Nic Newman, Mitch McGovern, and Kruze are all injured. Will Setterfield returns from a two week suspension that felt like 20. Charlie Curnow has been named but who knows with this guy. There’s also possible debuts for Liam Stocker (MID – 126.3k) and Angus Schumacher (DEF – 123.9k). Shaun Higgins will play at North, but Aaron Hall has been dropped. Jordan Clark is a fair shout to line up for Geelong this week, Darcy Fort (RUC – 117.3k) has been added to the squad. Essendon have added Sam Draper (RUC – 123.9k) and recalled Orazio for the match. For the last game of the week, no confirmed outs yet for either Adelaide or Fremantle, but Bryce Gibbs has been named for Adelaide. At Freo, Sean Darcy will probably return and there’s a possible debut for the mature aged Brett Bewley (MID – 117.3k)

The House of Evil

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

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

Can I go now? (Trade bait)

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

There’s been plenty of podcasts and column inches this week devoted to the many, many fallen premiums we’ve got for not only this week, but the weeks ahead. I’ll refer back to my intro though and say if you’re struggling to split options pick the one that best suits your bye structure. For Lock purposes, I just can’t go past the value that is Nat Fyfe. I’m not going to hit you with a bunch of stats. He is a proven A grader in SuperCoach. Yes he may get injured at some point, but so could anyone. He just ticks so many boxes. Round 12 bye – tick. Injury-less average of 127 – tick. Under 600k? – tick. Really, really, really ridiculously good looking? – tick, tick, and tick.  

If you don’t/can’t grab him this week he should still be available for under 600k next week. Make him a priority, community. 

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

Huge test for the Power tonight taking on Collingwood on their home deck. From a Draftstars point of view, both sides are in the bottom 4 for conceding points to the opposition. The Pies love to be in control of the footy and without Port having a recognised tagger could equal pay dirt for Collingwood mids

RUC

To Grundy (15.5k) or not to Grundy. There’s a lot to consider tonight, on the one hand number 1 rucks have really struggled against Port this year, averaging 79 with a high score of 96 (Goldy). If we consider Grundy as a midfielder, Port are the stingiest team in the league, only allowing 92DS to the top 3 opposition midfielders. 

Grundy smashed Ryder last time these two sides met, scoring 147DS. In his two games against Lycett and West Coast however, he only managed 68 and 99. I won’t go as far to say Grundy is a bad pick, he’s solo rucking tonight after all, and it’s Brodie Grundy, he’s a God amongst men. If you’re entering multiple lineups then enter a few with/without him. I’ll only enter one lineup though, so I feel there are “safer” selections tonight. I’ll take the 9.9k Lycett here. 

DEF

Medium defenders are a good place to attack Port this year, problem is Collingwood have so many that nailing that selection is a hard thing to do. Both Jeremy Howe (11.1k) and Jack Crisp (13k) have good recent records against Port and at Marvel stadium. The slightly cheaper Brayden Maynard (10.1k) and Tom Langdon (10k) are options too. Port have also let key defenders get on top of them in recent weeks, making Darcy Moore (7.5k) a solid value play (but he’ll be popular)

FWD

Port are allowing an average of 90DS to the oppositions number 1 medium forward. Jordan de Goey (12.3k) has had a really solid month, but price has crept up to a point where he no longer a value selection. Again, not a bad pick, but if it’s value you want take Jaidyn Stephenson (9.5k) instead. Justin Westhoff (12k) is slightly cheaper than de Goey and back up on the wing again where he can flourish.

Sam Gray’s (9.9k) price tag is under 10k for some reason after scores 122 and 116 for the past two weeks. The Pies have been pretty good at limiting mid/fwds but he’s got his tail up and is full of confidence.  

MIDS

Where will Levi Greenwood go tonight? Rocky has been susceptible to the tag in the past so I’m crossing my fingers and going with Travis Boak (MID / 14.9k). Take your pick of Collingwood midfielders; Adams (15.2k), Pendles (13.8k), and Sidebum (13.6k) all have 110+ recent averages against Port. Treloar’s (14.9k) is 109.  Karl Amon (6.5k) returns tonight and is good enough to hit 10x value. Sam Powell-Pepper is too good to be under 10k.

COREYSC

Double Downgrade this week
Scrimshaw to Answerth or Young?
Who do I downgrade for Hayes I have Atkins, Constable, Gibbons, Butters and Scott

BrownlowBoy

Butters

COREYSC

Righto, that leaves me with Atkins and Hayes on the field and I’ll loop Gibbons using Constable

Dreamin

Want to upgrade Collins in DEF, but best I can do with budget is to get Houli ? Is this a valid move ?

(Already spent my other trade getting rid of Gray (grr) to Kelly)

Hawks

Move is valid.

I like the move, biggest risk is that Houli tends to get hurt a bit, but lets face it most players get injuries these days.

Cpt Pugwash

Let’s hope that wasn’t Josh Kelly – late out.

Russty_

Josh Kelly is out mate…sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Sarah

Pretty simple week this week, Atkins to Hayes and Parker to T Kelly.

Holding both Scrimshaw and Constable I think, a shame Whitfield didn't play so his price drop comes sooner!

COREYSC

What’s the reasoning for holding both Constable and Scrimshaw

Sarah

Constable still a low BE and could come back next week if an injury / better match up, no good back rookies to bring in for Scrimshaw.

Atkins a low BE but role not conducive to points so probably won't go up much in value this week to next, probably make more than that price rise out of Constable if he gets back in the side.

Sharkmove_King

Solid trades

The_Blacksheep

Solid, I am doing the same trades.

Beezneez

Doing Atkins to Hayes. Tossing up between Petrucelle, Parker, Setterfield and Gibbons for T Kelly. Might be going with Setterfield cos can use Petrucelle and/or Gibbons to Fyfe next week as they are expected to rise a bit and Setterfield's not playing (again).

The_Blacksheep

Petrucelle BE -3 and Gibbons BE -19, I would be holding those two.

Beezneez

Thanx Blacksheep. Reaffirms my thinking.

Alferton

Looking at 2 upgrades this week.
Best option
1: Daniel or T.Kelly
2: Sicily or Laird.

Thoughts please.

Saritz

There looks to be a couple of decent bubble boys. You need to take the kids when they become available. Maybe better to paint the fence

FearTheBeard

Anyone able to help me finally lock a damn decision in. I've reversed it umpteem times already. I have checked byes and none will really make any major difference!

Lloyd, Sicily, Hurn which one do I bring in 😐

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Hurn

COREYSC

Hurn

Mick

Lloyd, Hurn Sicily in that order.

neil demons delight

hurn lloyd sicily. First two are must haves not sure about the flog

FearTheBeard

I've currently locked in Sicily only cause it leaves me 100k to go shopping next week with a downgrade should mean another premium.

Hurn and Lloyd might bleed some cash yet. Sic shouldn't.

Plus I wanna get Neale in next week and that 100k on Constable with another downgrade could make it happen 😐

Or do I STFU and take Lloyd LOL like my brain and everyone else says (my only concern is how bad the Swans are going with injuries and form he might not pump 130 etc).

Hawks

The bearded one, you ask for opinions, which are given, then you totally ignore the opinions. Why ask.

I have both Lloyd & Hurn, and don't have Sicily.

I would have taken Hurn first, he has been ultra consistent this year (1 game under 108). Averaged around 30 disposals over the past 4 rounds, is an intercept marking beast, and takes most kick-outs.

FearTheBeard

Thanks Hawks. Now you see why I've reversed so many times. I'm just trying to weigh it all up.

I have no doubt Lloyd/Hurn are needed. It's just will they drop cash.

Looking at it now I don't know if Hurn will with 100 odd b/e. Lloyd could with 130 odd breakeven.

My concern is does Hurn score as well when he plays a shit team they dominate as in less kick ins etc? Am I over thinking it? That's why I was leaning towards Lloyd (who then turned me of a touch with his BE and the fact Swans missing a fair few and losing more). Then thought Sicily last 3 rounds been 120ish and is 35k cheaper?

See my issue lol?

Hawks

You need Lloyd, but his price will drop, get him in later.

Hurn's price is reasonable, not likely to drop, he will be top 8 defender (currently #2, behind Lloyd).Missed just 1 game since the beginning of 2015. Ultra consistent, kick out rule in favourable to his scoring.

Sicily, rise will rise $10-15k then stabilise, if he keeps scoring well. has only played 20 games in a season once (2016), misses due to suspension. Can be swung forward by Clarko when needed, which makes his scoring less predictable.

I would go Hurn this week, and get Lloyd in when his price comes down a bit in a few weeks, keep watching Sicily, but id have him 3rd on the list for SC, even as a Hawthorn supporter.

FearTheBeard

Thanks Hawks.

With this comment it has actually made me feel more confident in my move. I could even potentially move on Lloyd next week if I wish too.

Thank you for taking the time!

LordDeb
FearTheBeard

Reversed to Hurn now 😐 literally been back and forth non stop lol. So tired of it.

Lloyd to Sic is 40k. Sic to Hurn is 20k so that's not as bad :/

What do I know :|||||||

DavidC

Stocker to debut

Swoosh111

How many of you will be wearing donuts this week with the carnage in the backline??

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Does Lockhart count as a 🍩

The Ranger

I need Clark to get a gig.

DavidC

While everybody has been trading in Fyfe this week, I've stayed strong. I've kept reminding myself why I didn't select him to start with … he'll miss games through injury and suspension I kept telling myself, he already has. Then the cheat sheet drops. There is Fyfe looking straight at me with those drooping dog ears and big wide sad eyes saying … trade me … trade me … please. Freo have the last game, it's going to be a long weekend.

Hawks

Stay strong

John

Thinking of trading Constable to Hayes but I'm unsure of my second trade. Don't know whether to upgrade or downgrade and really needs some help. Was thinking of going Burgess to Young just for some extra cash. Any help is appreciated!!

Def: Laird, Williams, Whitfield, Wilkie, Duursma, Hore EMG: Burgess, Clark
Mid: Cripps, Treloar, Fyfe, Cogs, Brayshaw, Crouch, Stack, Constable EMG: Atkins, Sparrow, Scott
Ruck: Grundy, Gawn EMG: Sweet
Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Drew, Parker, Petruccelle EMG: Setterfield, Shultz

SgtBilko23

Hey Community,

I need help on if i should go double upgrade, 1 up 1 down or double downgrade (no particular order):

Option 1:
Goldstien -> T.Kelly/Boak
Liberatore -> Fyfe

Option 2:
Goldstien -> T.Kelly/Boak
Jones/Scott/Burgess -> Hayes

Option 3:
Scrimshaw -> L.Young
Jones/Scott/Burgess -> Hayes

Current team is:

DEF: Lloyd, Laird, Smith, Williams, Hore, Duursma ( Clark, Scrimshaw)
MID: Cripps, Macrae, Oliver, M.crouch, Libba, Constable, Atkins, Butters ( Setterfield, Scott, Jones)
RUCK: Gawn, Goldstien ( o'brien)
FWD: Dangerfield, Heeney, Billings, Drew, Petruccelle, Parker ( Burgess, Bines)

I have $148,700 in the bank
27 trades left

Thanks

Hawks

Tough decision.

Think long term (full promo).

Who do you want in the Ruck? If your happy with Gawn & Goldy, then keep Goldy, if you want Gawn & Grundy, then you are going to need the cash difference between Goldy & Grundy to do it (currently about $150k).

OBrien will make cash, and may get to $350k (still going to need $300+k to get to Grundy).

Grundy is outscoring Goldy by 26pts per game, and O'Brien by 37 pts per game.

Ask yourself is it worth doing one downgrade, and going Goldy to Grundy, and not having to worry about the rucks until you cash in Obrien?

That is what I would be doing.

SgtBilko23

Ah Whoops I have Grundy ATM not Gawn my bad. Long/Med term O'Brien would turn into Gawn and I am reasonably confident i will have the cash to do so.

I feel if I go the upgrade I would net more points (+50ish) bringing in a stronger forward or mid and running obrien compared to the +20 going straight to Gawn

Mick

If I were you I’d go Scrimshaw down to Young or Answerth and then upgrade Constable to Fyfe. The other options you’ve suggested are mostly sideways. Libba, Goldy etc should be your last trades if you have them spare. Upgrade your rooks to premos first.

SgtBilko23

I don't mind that Mick. Does it matter that my forward line is the major issue thou or do I just need to grab Fyfe while he is cheap?

TRIGGA_HAPPY

How long is Whitfield out for?

Do I need to think about trade?
Is it an LTI?

Hawks

Its a bad corky, he should only miss 1.

The fact that GWS sat Whitfield in the goal square last week after assessing the injury tells me it shouldn't be an LTI

The Ranger

Fingers are crossed Hawks.
I need Clark to play to avoid the donut.

The Ranger

Hoping it's only one week Trigga but it might be two.
I'm holding for now.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Scrimshaw ouy at the same time sux.
Can bring Duursma on for Whitfield but Lockhart will have to cover scrimshaw unless I go early on.answorth which dont really wanna do.

The Ranger

Bringing in Cogs so I'm not a premo down but I'm not a premo up either…

Beezneez

One advantage of having Burgess was to swap with Moore to cover Whitfield and avoid having Lockhart on field.

Cliffy

Need your advice community:

I got thrown out of whack with the Constable news last night, so have had to improvise my trades for this round, so either:

Option A

Atkins/Butters – Hayes
Constable – TK (via Drew DPP)

– Opens MID/FWD link
– Play Drew at M7, loop one of Butters/Atkins with Hayes at M8

Option B

Collins – Young (he will be D8, just to clear up)
Constable – Fyfe

Option C

Butters – Hayes
Atkins – TK (via Drew DPP)

– Play Drew at M7, loop Hayes/Gibbons at M8
– Hold Constable for Round 7

#SuperCoach

Mick

For me; literally A, B, C in that order of liking them.

The Ranger

Love ya work Kev, thanks

SC_Kev7

Any time, Ranger 🙂

KSinny

Lloyd or Boak and why?

Mick

Either, both will be top 2 in their position. Can’t go wrong so whatever works for your bye structure

The Ranger

Both are top priced so neither for me but if you made me choose it would be Lloyd as I can't see Boak keeping up a 110av all year.

Hawks

Lloyd, will definitely be top 8 in his position, so wont need to trade him out to have your best team.

Brn

Lloyd. Boak wont keep the form up

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Any interest in a dusty/lloyd swap in draft NDD?

Got too many mids and not enough def and fwds.

Smith, Curnow, higgins out last week gave me donuts (still not sure how the bench works – apparently dont get a score for a late out) and simmo getting injured just adds to the carnage.

Russty_

Pretty sure you only get one emergency score Trig and it's the lowest one.

The Ranger

Shai Bolton or Mitch Lewis?

Hawks

I went Shae Bolton this week.

Think with the injuries at Richmond his JS is better.

MidPricer

Constable and Scott to Hayes and TKelly? Don’t really want to drop Constable but need to, to afford TKelly. I could go Scrimshaw but that would mean getting Young instead of Hayes. Could trade Butters but he is playing and still has dollars to make. What is the community doing with Scott?

Hawks

Using Scott as the loop this week, probably move him as soon as a decent downgrade comes along, unless he gets game time.

Stupid Coach

24 trades left and $135k in the bank. Team currently as follows:
B: Whitfield,Laird, Z Williams, Collins, Wilkie, Duursma, Lockhart, Joyce
M: Cripps, Oliver, Mcrae, Merrett, Coniglio, Walsh, Stack, Ross, Scott, Butters, Constable
R: Gawn, Goldy, Sweet
F: Danger, Heeney, D Smith, Rozee, Drew, Settlefield, Petrucelle, Parker

Keeping Whitfield and will use either Joyce or Lockhart (leaning towards Joyce) to cover him. I have lost patience with D Smith and not sure whether to persevere or trade him to T Kelly/C Daniel. My only option appears to be Scott to Hayes or Scott to Hayes and D Smith to Kelly or Daniel (Kelly works better for my bye structure).

Love to bring Fyfe in this week but it might have to wait until next week.

Would appreciate any thoughts or advise Community.

The Ranger

Hold your premos and only trade them when you've fixed all of your other problems.
Scott or Constable – Hayes.

Jack

Have $400,000 and am considering going Constable -> Fyfe and Scott -> Hayes, leaving me with roughly $200,000. Is it worth trading out Constable and Scott seeing as they're not playing?

The Ranger

Yep. Good trades IMO.

Jack

Thanks for the feedback. I'm set on Scott-> Hayes, the other alternative is Atkins -> Fyfe and that allows me to loophole Hayes with Setterfield. Leaning towards this ATM as Constable has the scoring capability to make another 100k which will be crucial in filling out my mids.

The Ranger

Not much in it Jack.
Constable has made enough money to be traded – I work on the theory that anything above 150K is fine.
I'm concerned Constable might struggle to get back in now with Parfitt fit and Selwood not far off.

Jack

Yeah i'd have to agree it is concerning that he has gone from managed to now not even making the extended interchange

FCAbel

Cunstable to Hayes or Scrimshaw to Young to facilitate Collins to TK. Seeing pros and cons to both 🤔

Gibbs

Trading Scrimshaw this week, have 640 k to spend so can afford anyone. Who do I get out of Lloyd, Hurn, Sicily, Ryan and Stewart?

FearTheBeard

Been my headscratcher all week.

Was between Lloyd, Hurn, Sicily. Out of 8 people who commented 5 said Hurn, 3 said Lloyd. I still don't have a clue LOL.

FearTheBeard

Gone Hurn. Few people make sense 😛

Gibbs

Ok Cheers mate! Im thinking of going Sicily, still reasonable value and has been in super form!

Richie Porte

Going either Butters or Atkins to Hayes then original plan was to trade Collins for T Kelky via Darcy Moore swing, should I stick with trading Collins or trade out Scrimshaw, or back Scrimshaw to have a week rest and come back and get a few more price rises. Also Butters or Atkins first. Cheers

TKC

With the back line carnage is it now worth considering trading out Whitfield for another premo, and bringing him back in once his price drops to ~$500k (after his bye maybe)? Wasn’t even considering that before finding out Scrimshaw and Clark are also missing this week.

Team is:

B.Smith, Z.Williams, Moore, Scrimshaw, Duursma, Hore – Whitfield, Clark

Cripps, Neale, Macrae, Fyfe, Liberatore, Rockliff, B.Crouch, Walsh – Constable, Butters, Stack

Grundy, Gawn – O’Brien

Dangerfield, Kelly, Marshall, Drew, Petruccelle, Setterfield – Parker, Burgess

Already switched Moore to the backline via Burgess, but will need to trade out Scrimshaw for another defender if I don’t trade Whitfield. Have 24 trades and trying to decide if it’s better to go Whitfield to Lloyd, or else Scrimshaw & Butters out for D.Rich & W.Hayes. Can’t quite afford Laird or Sicily with the second option.

Thoughts? Thanks!

Derek

I think Clark is playing

TelescopicCox

Is Constable > Fyfe worthwhile if it blows my budget? Leaves me exposed with 3 rookies on field down back and up forward (one is Moore)

cash_cows

Do I trade constable or butters to fyfe?
Both low BE but constable has higher ceiling but not playing

TheBenchmark25

150k in the bank
Option 1
Atkins to Shai Bolton via dpp and
Scrimshaw to laird

Option 2
Atkins to Hayes
Constable to Fyfe

Option 2 leaves me with 1k left but will double downgrade next week

The Ranger

2 for mine.
The double down next week makes it ok.

Nathan

So far I've locked in Constable to Fyfe, but with Whitfield, Burgess and McKay out in my backline, I'm not sure what the best move is to avoid the donut. Any advice?

James

First trade is Constable to Hayes but I don’t know what to do with my 2nd one. $250k in the bank, 28 trades after Constable and was thinking of going Burgess to Young. Any other suggestions ?

Def: Laird, Williams, Whitfield, Wilkie, Duursma, Hore EMG: Burgess, Clark
Mid: Cripps, Treloar, Fyfe, Cogs, Brayshaw, Crouch, Stack, Constable EMG: Atkins, Sparrow, Scott
Ruck: Grundy, Gawn EMG: Sweet
Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Drew, Parker, Petruccelle EMG: Setterfield, Schultz

Disco

Should I trade Butters, Atkins or Constable to Hayes? Was leaning towards trading Butters but looking at projected prices looks like he will make more money than atkins! What should I do?

BradleyTC99

Hey guys, any ideas for what i can do would be great!

26 trades left, 80k in the bank.

Def: Hurn, Laird, Crisp, Williams, Duursma, Hore (Scrimshaw, Burgess)
Mid: Cripps, Macrae, Oliver, M Crouch, Libba, Walsh, Constable, Ross (Atkins, Gibbons, Scott)
Ruc: Grundy, Gawn (ROB)
Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Moore, Drew, Parker (Petrol jelly, Bines)

I am looking at getting in Josh Kelly next week as a little POD, since i cant get fyfe in this week. Any thoughts would be great guys!

hedski

Clark is in for Constable, only change for the cats.
That will save a lot of people from getting a 🍩.

The Ranger

Phew! Needed that Hedski.
D'ya think Constable gets back in soon?
Not that I'm that bothered, he's just become Cogs. Thanks Charlie!

hedski

Not sure if he's rested for a faster playing Bombers side or his defensive pressure isnt up to scratch.
Turning him to Hayes and Scrim to Laird most likely.
Got you again this week in a different league Ranger, let's see if you can get me back after I done you last round 😉

The Ranger

You might get me again mate, got Whitfield out.
Best of luck.

hedski

Of course I forgot to put Butters on the bench with the E.

TommyC99

So im pretty set on Scott – Hayes this week. Non playing player – bubble rookie is a no brainer. The lack of cash pocketed is the only downside.

So i had planned to do that downgrade this week and next week look at Scrimshaw – Answerth and Atkins – Premo mid. But i noticed theres a number of rookies on the bubble NEXT week. I know going early is not good at all but i'll only be able to bring one in next week so would it be worth it to go early on one? Doesn't have to be answerth as i don't have a zero in my defense (yet)

COREYSC

I went early on Answerth mate
Scrimshaw to Answerth
Constable to Hayes
Building that Bank to upgrade in the coming weeks another double downgrade next week too I think at this stage

What_Bear

Be careful with Ainswerth. He may get dropped. next week when Andrews and Zac Bailey are back.

UpBeat

Who has the better JS out of Shai Bolton and Mitch Lewis?

Saritz

Flip of a coin. But Bolton went crazy in the Magoos last week and racked up 135 SC pts. So Im hoping he can get at least 3-4 games more and ton up at least once. In short, I think Bolton can make more $ more quickly, and is why Ive selected him

Harrison

noone is secure in richmonds lineup unfortunately

RoyWetard

Who scores more? Fyfe vs ADE and RIC and get T.Kelly in 2 weeks or T.Kelly vs ESS and NTH and get Fyfe/Macrae in 2 weeks.

TommyC99

Fyfe is a more exciting trade in with his ceiling so id go him

Norf4lyf

tim should go big

Clarko

Constable -> Tim Kelly (swing drew mid)
Butters -> Hayes

Don't really want to drop constable but only other option is downgrading Scrimshaw which is risky with the defensive rookies at the moment.

Dash

Need some trade advice. Just not sure what to do. Facing a donut in the backline. 146K left
Laird, Whitfield, D Moore, Collins, Clark, Duursma, (Scrimshaw, Clark)
Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Butters, Atkins, (Constable, Scott, Gibbons)
Gawn, Grundy, (Bines)
Danger, Heeney, Boak, Drew, Parker, Petrucelle, (Setterfield, Balta)

Russty_

2 Clarks in the backline?….you could do a double downgrade, Constable to Hayes and Scrimshaw to Answerth a week early, would allow you to make some needed upgrades next week..
Or Constable to Hayes and Scrimshaw to a premo if you can afford.

Dash

Thanks for the pick up. It was supposed to say (Scrimshaw, Burgess)

Gainsy

Get burgess out would be my view. But scrim out is just as good

Dash

I could get a premo DEF in such as Sicily or even Lloyd. You reckon Scrimshaw and Constable out. Burgess just sitting there and I'll probably use him at the moment just to loophole. Thoughts?

Gainsy

Tough one. Out of the 2 sicily for me but im yet to figure whom my top6 def are. Rich is calling for a spot and as much as i love his kick to handball ratio for supercoach scoring potential i just feel odd about him

Dash

What do you think of Constable – Bolton
Scrimshaw – Sicily/Lloyd

Maverick_

Community,
OPTION 1: i can go boak AND Lloyd but is it worth the huge outlay of 1.2mil.. seems way too much!
leave a bank of 187k

OPTION 2: i can get one of and a more budget option of a sicily/Laird or caleb daniel depending which of boak/lloyd i pick..
bank of 250-300ish depending on what combo of course

It's left me rattled all week

Gainsy

Option 3.. both budget…

Maverick_

Could include an OPTION 3 choosing two budget options but I feel i need one of Lloyd/Boak both extremely consistent and pumping out decent scores will both finish top 2-3 in there positions from here on.

Gainsy

Lay out you target premos and if sicil laird or daniels are in your target state id get them while the price is friendly… getting lloyd a few weeks after he has a quieter game is an option that COULD come up… but i cant see him getting much more expensive

hedski

Laird and Daniel Mav, then get one of the others next week.

Harrison

option 2 with boak

Holty01

I look at it this way. They will arguably be top 2 in both their positions so while you have the money to get them in, I’d go for it. You may never have that opportunity again to get them in.
They may go down in value but how many points do you miss out on while you wait? If I had the money I’d get Lloyd guaranteed but at present I have to wait because I simply can’t afford it

Maverick_

thanks fellas i have passed on boak this week.
appreciate the help

Maverick_

yeah 39 at HT makes me feel good! haha

Gainsy

Const and scrim out.
Kelly and fyfe in.

Gainsy

Good or bad?

Russty_

Pretty good I think Gainsy.

Gainsy

Feels a bit early on those 2 but my math says the 2 coming in are undervalued more than the rooks will accumulate more. Hoping it works out

Russty_

It will, you got em at the right time and what better time to trade the rooks out than when they're both out, 2 more premos you won't have to worry about getting in.

Lekdog

REVERSE! KELLY BEEN RULED OUT

Saritz

Maybe they meant Tim Kelly?

Lekdog

Josh yes

Maverick_

i think Gainsy meant Tim not Josh lek

Gainsy

Thanks mate. I meant the kelly of the tim kind.

Lekdog

Josh Kelly just been ruled out

Saritz

Thanks Lek. Not on my radar yet anyway. But SC reliability is starting to become a issue with him

Russty_

Cheers mate…thought you meant Tim there for a minute!!

Saritz

Its definitely JOSH and not TIM? If Josh Kelly, maybe Hately comes into the side?? *fingers crossed*

Kewbie Bear

Hately in is a big silver lining

Froggy

Thinking of trading the FLASH for Toby Greene, is he worth the gamble ??

Saritz

No

Bristle

Which 2 players to bench out of Petrol, Bolton, Parker and Setterfield?

Nathan

Thoughts on Joyce vs Answerth job security? Not really keen on Young so I might go a week early on one of these guys. Thoughts?

COREYSC

I went a week early on answerth Brisbane side looks more settled and answetth plays a different role to Harris Andrews

What_Bear

Yes but Bailey will be back next week, or the week after

Saritz

Dont go a week early would be my suggestion. Answerth has a higher ceiling, but poorer JS

Kelly18

should i trade out Constable or Miles for Fyffe

Saritz

Miles

Russty_

Miles is garbage when you consider the lifeline he's been thrown, hardly made any money in 4 games, you don't need a spud like that dragging your midfield scores down.
Gotta get rid of him.

Kelly18

tanks ditched Miles will use Constable as a loophole for this week

COREYSC

Using my first two trades this week
Double Downgrade to Build that bank!
Scrimshaw to Answerth
Constable to Hayes

Thoughts?

Mori
Saritz

Hately IN for Josh Kelly! Hopefully he becomes another bubble boy we can choose from next week. I love trading season

Saritz

Grundy VC…. Dont let me down

UpBeat

Remember Port beat up Gawn

Saritz

1/4 time… Grundy 34pts v Lycett -1pts

TelescopicCox

Best trade in option? Thinking of Constable and Petrucelle/Atkins for Hayes and a Premo

A – Fyfe
B – Laird
C – Sicily
D – J.Cameron (POD)

ABC mean i have Petrucelle as F6, and move Gibbons off field
D means I move Drew to F6, but have to play both Gibbons and Hayes

Holty01

I was going Cameron this week until Constable was dropped. Have to strengthen the mids now as I don’t want Atkins or Setterfield onfield

Shake_n_bake

Who is everybody putting there vc and capt on?

KSinny

Got Boak in this week and gonna see if he can go big in his 250th

Maverick_

gawn into cripps also.
North are rubbish cripps might go huge

Russty_

V on Gawn, C on Bines or Danger, Neale, Fyfe, Cripps

Russty_

Yeah for sure mate, Kent I think, he's just so consistent, thanks for your outdoor dunny dags….lol

JohnDJ59

Gawn VC, Cripps C.

Derek

Grundy VC

Holty01

Maybe Neale into Cripps

Shake_n_bake

I went with Gawn into Cripps aswell

Beezneez

Lot of players in front of him and Brown Douglas due back soon. Hard to choose him in front of Jones and Poholke

Beezneez

Ps Mchenry Crows 2nd draft pick was best for the 2's last night. Chance Jones just behind him.

Kewbie Bear

Stengle has been very consistent as well

Maverick_

treloar at 44% TOG this is concerning after he missed a midweek training and now limited game time

Russty_

just got a nice Goal assist, he'll probably still ton up.

Maverick_

1 kick 7 Handballs.
This is bad

Brn

Actually had a lot of TOG, just having a rough game. Pendles 72 sc at half time – takes me back about 4 years to when he was lyfe

Russty_

Pendles could still be relevant, he might be trying to go out with a bang, if his wife instructed him to quit Football.

Maverick_

yeah jumped up to 71% TOG now got alot more time in the 2nd quarter but still below avg. hopefully a big 2nd half from treloar here

Russty_

Reckon he'll be ok Mav, he's a ball hoggy piglet, loves getting it and even if he's butchering it, can still ton up regularly.
Rarely goes missing in games which is what you want.

TelescopicCox

Treloar went bang once Adams went off. Could be in for a good run coming up if Adams missing time
