SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 7

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.

  1. COREYSC says:

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

  2. Dreamin says:

    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)

  3. Sarah says:

    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 says:

      What’s the reasoning for holding both Constable and Scrimshaw

      • Sarah says:

        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 says:

      Solid trades

    • The_Blacksheep says:

      Solid, I am doing the same trades.

    • Beezneez says:

      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).

  4. Alferton says:

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

    Thoughts please.

    • SC_Kev7 says:

      If you're playing for overall TK has the better ceiling than Daniel. Laird has shown his scoring will drop with Milera and Smith in the side so prefer Sicily. If playing leagues, as I said in the intro, pick whoever best suits your bye structure

    • Saritz says:

      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

  5. FearTheBeard says:

    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 says:

      Hurn

    • COREYSC says:

      Hurn

    • Mick says:

      Lloyd, Hurn Sicily in that order.

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

      • FearTheBeard says:

        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 says:

          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 says:

            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 says:

              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 says:

                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!

    • FearTheBeard says:

      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 :|||||||

  6. DavidC says:

    Stocker to debut

  7. Swoosh111 says:

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

  8. DavidC says:

    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.

  9. John says:

    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

  10. SgtBilko23 says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

        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 says:

      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 says:

        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?

  11. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    How long is Whitfield out for?

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

    • Hawks says:

      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 says:

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

      • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

        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.

    • Beezneez says:

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

  12. Sholl from adelaide must be getting close Had a ripper JLT then nothing

  13. Cliffy says:

    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

  14. The Ranger says:

    Love ya work Kev, thanks

  15. KSinny says:

    Lloyd or Boak and why?

    • Mick says:

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

    • The Ranger says:

      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 says:

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

  16. The Ranger says:

    Shai Bolton or Mitch Lewis?

  17. MidPricer says:

    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 says:

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

  18. Johnno says:

    Why are so many people so keen on Laird, he didnt average particularly well with B Smith and Milera in with him and Milera only out for about 6 rounds, when he is back his average will drop if history goes anything like it has.

    So therefore would Sicily, Rich or Lloyd be better long term upgrades. (Currently have Hurt and Crisp)

    Would love to know your thoughts community.

    • Mick says:

      Lloyd definitely would. I still think Laird will finish top 6 Def by seasons end but Lloyd will be top 2.

    • The Ranger says:

      He has the runs on the board Johnno.
      Even if he doesn't do as well with Smith and Milera back he'll still make a decent D6.
      And Smith normally breaks at some point.

      • Johnno says:

        I understand he has runs on the board, but surely it would be better to bring a bloke in who averages 95 from now on rather than a bloke who averages 90 from here on in, even though the 90 bloke has a few more points already, as those previous points don't count for anything

        • The Ranger says:

          Richard hit the nail on the head, it's all about value.
          Sic and Lloyd are great options too but Laird is better value for money right now IMO.
          I woudn't touch Rich with a very long barge pole personally.
          He burns.

    • Richard says:

      The appeal is his price. At $531 I think he's this week's buy-of-the-week. He's only going to improve. Those expensive defenders (Sicily, Hurn, Lloyd, etc) will drop in value at some stage. Grab those guys later in the year.

    • Beezneez says:

      He wss tagged in all his poorer scoring matches. Wasn't last week and hence good score.

    • redherringfc says:

      We pick our top players at the start of the year and work out who we should wait for their price to drop. So we don’t start them and hope they drop. Laird definitely fits this category. The big question is “Is he done?”. In a couple of weeks we’ll be saying “can’t believe he was x dollars a few weeks ago”.

      As for who you are considering, Lloyd is a must, Sicily is pretty close to the mark, especially for such a nice young lad. Rich – risk it, if you want to.

      Not too many have Crisp, but I think almost all of us have Hurt. I blame Johnny Cash.

  19. Stupid Coach says:

    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 says:

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

  20. Jack says:

    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 says:

      Yep. Good trades IMO.

      • Jack says:

        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 says:

          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 says:

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

  21. FCAbel says:

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

  22. Gibbs says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

      Gone Hurn. Few people make sense 😛

      • Gibbs says:

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

  23. Richie Porte says:

    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

  24. TKC says:

    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!

  25. TelescopicCox says:

    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)

  26. cash_cows says:

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

  27. TheBenchmark25 says:

    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

  28. Nathan says:

    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?

  29. James says:

    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 ?

    Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Drew, Parker, Petruccelle EMG: Setterfield, Schultz

  30. Disco says:

    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?

  31. BradleyTC99 says:

    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!

  32. hedski says:

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

    • The Ranger says:

      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 says:

        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 😉

  33. TommyC99 says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

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

  34. UpBeat says:

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

    • Saritz says:

      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

  35. RoyWetard says:

    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.

  36. Clarko says:

    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.

  37. Dash says:

    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_ says:

      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 says:

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

        • Gainsy says:

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

          • Dash says:

            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 says:

              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

  38. Maverick_ says:

    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 says:

      Option 3.. both budget…

      • Maverick_ says:

        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 says:

          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 says:

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

    • Harrison says:

      option 2 with boak

    • Holty01 says:

      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_ says:

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

  39. Gainsy says:

    Const and scrim out.
    Kelly and fyfe in.

  40. Lekdog says:

    Josh Kelly just been ruled out

  41. Froggy says:

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

  42. Bristle says:

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

  43. Nathan says:

    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?

  44. Kelly18 says:

    should i trade out Constable or Miles for Fyffe

  45. COREYSC says:

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

    Thoughts?

  46. Saritz says:

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

  47. Saritz says:

    Grundy VC…. Dont let me down

  48. TelescopicCox says:

    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 says:

      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

  49. Shake_n_bake says:

    Who is everybody putting there vc and capt on?

  50. who are the bubble boys next week Is there a site ?

  51. Maverick_ says:

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

    • Russty_ says:

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

      • Maverick_ says:

        1 kick 7 Handballs.
        This is bad

        • Brn says:

          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_ says:

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

          • Maverick_ says:

            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_ says:

              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 says:

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

  52. Holty01 says:

    Sometimes it’s a bad thing living in SA as all you hear about is the Crows and Power on the tv and radio. I mistakenly listened to the dribble of the Power big men giving it to Grundy for tonight’s game. It seems like they sent kids over to try and trouble him. I didn’t put the vc on him because of this. But to give credit where it is due, he is by far at present the best ruck in the competition.

  53. redherringfc says:

    good to see Butters got his 1st point at the 12 minute mark in the 2nd quarter. At this rate he might score 3.

    Think I’ll throw Scott and Burgess on field so I can blame my poor score on a couple of 🍩 🍩.

    • Russty_ says:

      Or you could change the slogan to…"i can't believe it's not Butters scoring shit all"….lol.
      But he could still end up on 50…which is about rookie par.

    • COREYSC says:

      Butters has so much talent but every time he gets the ball it’s like his mind is going 100km/h and he tried to do too much with the ball when he was it too! Yet still with all the talent I Place him on my field and wonder why I do it haha

      • redherringfc says:

        Pretty happy I put him on the bench with the E on him. Going to have to rely on Gibbons to get something now, I guess.

  54. Brn says:

    Great to see drew from my local koroit vic doing well. Same score as boak at half time. Know him well and deserved his shot 🙂

  55. Derek says:

    Moore gets his standard 52pts first half. Now we watch as he struggles to 78.

  56. dontblushbaby says:

    Pendles getting some nice numbers lately ? could he be a top 8 Mid ?

  57. Connor says:

    Stephenson has had 2 kicks since QT for 20+ points .. sometimes I just don’t get this game

  58. Russty_ says:

    Moore's now on 80…that means he must score -1 in the last and end up on 79 LOL

  59. Russty_ says:

    Guessing Rocky isn't a top 8 mid after all…slow game this week, might've run out of gas.

    • Holty01 says:

      Hard to say mate. Based on tonight you’d think no. Wouldn’t be surprised if he has a niggle or something as didn’t see him in the midfield and certainly no centre bounces in the 2nd half.

    • Gainsy says:

      Didnt see it. Was he a butcher or just tagged out?

      • Russty_ says:

        I think he spent a fair bit of time in the fwd line Gainsy. Plus Port got pumped.

        • Gainsy says:

          Thanks mate. The old 'play our best midfielder up forward when we're getting pumped' trick

          • Derek says:

            He went forward when Ebert went off.

            Ports next 5 games will suite Rocky, Pues are too quick for him

    • Tommy says:

      He looked very slow tonight! Not sure whether he’s got a niggle or not but wasnt covering the ground well at all. Glad I didn’t trade him in!

  60. Holty01 says:

    Is Rocky injured? Hardly seen him in the midfield this game.

  61. Holty01 says:

    Is Westhoff back?

  62. Russty_ says:

    Took the plunge on bringing Westy in this week, pretty happy with his score tonight, hopefully he's turned it around now, handy ruck cover too.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Good stuff Russty! You cagey fox!! No guts no glory!

    • Holty01 says:

      Awesome mate

    • Derek says:

      Well played Russty.

      Hoff was always in my plans until O’Brien cam along and gave us ruck cover.

      Glad I didn’t get Lycett, not being #1 ruck is killing him.

      Hoff will need another good game next week then his draw almost says get him. Interesting.

      • Russty_ says:

        Cheers Derek, looks like it could be a close finish there at the G, hope you wore your pink socks mate.
        Fingers crossed Hoff can keep it going, otherwise I'll be stuck with a spud.

  63. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Who else traded the HOFF in this week? BANG!

  64. Hate this game .Decided against V C on Grundy hoping to put it on Gawn tomorrow . but the old forget to take it off last weeks rose it's ugly head Thanks for nothing Rocky . Go beat up Creed

  65. Hawks says:

    Some loop hole choices-

    Def – do I take Duursma's 68 or risk it on Joyce of StK

    Mid – do I take Drew's 69 or risk it on Gibbons

    Any thoughts welcomed

  66. Tommy says:

    Not taking grundys score. Captain danger, gawn, Fyfe or Cripps?

    • Frank says:

      Probably Cripps out of those…

    • Russty_ says:

      Giday Tommy, I think Gawn might be the go mate, average 128.3 against the Hawks (McEvoy) from 4 games….
      Cripps might struggle to get as much of it as usual with some of Carlton's key defensive men out..averaging 100 against them for 4 games played.
      Fyfe averages 115 against the Crows at Adelaide Oval…from 7 games played.
      Danger averages 95.3 against the Bombers at the MCG…pretty surprisingly low that from 12 games.
      To narrow it down from historical figures, I'd say Gawn or Fyfe.

      • Hawks says:

        Agree Gawn.

        Hawks don't defender the ruckman around the grounds, they are happy to roll the dice, and bet that McEvoy will punish the opposition more than the opposing ruckman will.

    • Derek says:

      Did Grundy just watch most of the last quarter from the bench? Stupid VC choice.

  67. Frank says:

    Who else has jumped on Hayes? Is he worth it?

    • Hawks says:

      No I went Shae Bolton in the forward line, and moved Drew to the Mids instead of getting Hayes.

      May take a look at Lienert next week.

    • RohanJ says:

      I’ve gone Hayes. As a dog’s fan, I reckon he’s got oknjob security. Should get a few games into him but they’ll only be 40-50s. Maybe with some AFL experience, he’ll rise. Don’t reckon he’ll play every week for the rest of the year – hoping for the next 3-4 anything else is a bonus!

  68. TBone_9 says:

    Had the plan to trade Butters out and get Fyfe in, but with Constable getting dropped decided to trade him up instead. Gotta love getting a 30 onfield! Ah well, it’s a long weekend ahead

    • DavidC says:

      I've got the 'e' on him but now with LDU out I will have to trade or I will get his score.

  69. Stupid Coach says:

    Do I trade Scott to Hayes and Constable to T Kelly (via Settlefield DPP) which leaves $17k in the bank and 22 trades or just the first trade and get T Kelly in next week. Originally wanted to go Constable to Fyfe but don't have enough cash and can't find a mid under $500k worth getting.

  70. Dash says:

    Bolton or Hayes
    Lloyd or Sicily

    Who goes out of Scrimshaw, Constable, Burgess

    • Derek says:

      Burgess is handy DPP if you have Moore. Constable will make a bit more coin. Scrimshaw needed the rest and could be good after a week off.

      I’m getting rid of Burgess. Think he will struggle to get many games.

    • Cot Pugwash says:

      Bolton / kicks more goals, tackles more.
      Sicily / Price

    • Derek says:

      Sicily is scoring better than Laird. Against Melb’s poor kicking this week he could go very large. Hawks have better bye round.

      Laird is clearly scoring less than he should. Averaging less than 5 marks a game. I feel that Crows are starting to sort themselves out and if they go back to Laird in defence he will bounce back.

      Both should be top 6 defenders from here on.

      I’m getting Laird purely on his price. If I trade out Burgess I’m $4k shirt for Sicily and didn’t want to trade Scrimshaw.

      If money not an issue, I’d go Sicily in current form, but very happy with Laird as he as more improvement

  71. Juddy says:

    Daniel or kelly or Cameron
    Consistency & nice bye. V yo-yo scores easy draw BAD bye V KPP but easy draw ahead nice bye

    • Derek says:

      Kelly by a fair margin. Unless his bye is a problem.

      I was super keen on Cameron pre season and got him early in all my draft teams, but just could pick a key forward in my classic team.

      GWS have an insane draw to the byes.

      GWS last 4 games of season, our SC finals are, well, just so mouth watering you will want every GWS player.

      I’m passing on Fyfe. That elbow just worries me too much, and will get JKelly next week.

      • Derek says:

        Couldn’t pick Cameron

        • Juddy says:

          It’s exsctly that reason i don’t want to lock in kelly is that dreaded bye. As I want to bring in Lloyd down back I could go Sicily but I just don’t know

  72. TommyC99 says:

    Thoughts on Shai Bolton? Could bring him in for Parker or just hold out for next week as there looks like quite a few downgrade targets?

  73. BradleyTC99 says:

    Hey community, i hadn't really thought about him but what are our opinions on Bolton? Can we trust his JS? I've still got 1 trade up my sleeve this week and can go parker – Bolton

  74. Mick says:

    Thoughts on Joyce's job security at St Kilda?

  75. Tommy says:

    Who to bench out of Petrucelle, Bolton or Parker?

  76. TelescopicCox says:

    Last minute trade decision. Any tips:

    A Atkins and Petrucelle to Hayes and Daniel
    B Atkins and Constable to Fyfe and Hayes

    • The Ranger says:

      B for mine.

    • Mr_Pink_ says:

      B definitely. Question marks around Caleb Daniel's current role continuing down back – he has been found out defensively at times – and Constable's immediate future in the Cats team. A big concern not being named in the emergencies with guys like Parsons, Parfitt named and S. Selwood waiting in the wings.

      • hedski says:

        Constable back on the emergency list now that Jelwood has been withdrawn Pinky, Parfitt comes in.
        Not that it matters to me since I just traded him to Hayes.

        • Beezneez says:

          I really need Constable to stay out cos I've looped him to take Stack's 98. I'm worried there may be a late change and he could come in. I may have to change my intended trade of Setterfield to T Kelly fwd. to Gibbons to T Kelly and swing Setterfield to the mids. Anyone else with the same concern? Sounds like a no brainer but I was banking on Gibbons to Fyfe next week cos he ( Gibbons) should increase about about 20 odd thousand k's.

    • i am doing B just tossing Ross into it. Will make the same coin as Hayes and loads more Js / have to find about 75k but liking it

  77. COREYSC says:

    I need some advice community
    Scrimshaw to Answerth
    Constable to Hayes
    Or
    Atkins to Hayes
    Constable to Hatley

    Basically I have to go early on either Answerth or Hatley

  78. Snorkle says:

    Help please
    Take Dursma 69 or gamble on Baker
    Thx in advance

  79. Snorkl says:

    Sorry ment drew- 69 or play baker

  80. Snorkle says:

    Done boys thx 69 it is, hopefully a good omen for tonight lol

  81. TBone_9 says:

    Don’t want to jynx it but nice start for Lockhart and Parker! Cmon boys, keep up the hard work!!

  82. What's with all the 69's

    • Derek says:

      Hey NDD. I’m at the dees hawks game today. Down from Sydney for the day. Your blokes can not kick.

      • I will be up at Parra to check out the new stadium and my beloved EELS. Have you been there Derek? Some are saying it is the best stadium in the southern hemisphere. Dees were lucky but turnovers could well have cost them. Interesting what you said about Fyfe,got me thinking only 2 hours to make a call cheers NDD

        • Derek says:

          I haven’t been to parramatta, just stay in the shire and cheer on the sharkies.

          I need to re think my JKelly for next week. Out this week, not good. Won’t drop the few dollars I wanted, plus he is now an injury concern.

          Fyfe will be good, but I didn’t consider him at all pre season with his elbow. Doesn’t seem to be worry him but you never know what he is having to do each week to look after it and eventually it fails. Oh well, done my trades for this week and got Laird in.

    • Holty01 says:

      I’m 38, married and have 2 little kids. The 69s written on this page the last hour are the only ones I see these days.

  83. Holty01 says:

    Now if Hately continues this after halftime and gets dropped again next week, GWS really mustn’t rate the kid. He looks an already made footballer.

    • Russty_ says:

      For sure Holty, looks a very good young player, only reason must be there's just no room for him in there.

    • Beezneez says:

      Played good football for Centrals in the SANFL last year. GWS lucky to get him with their pick. Can't understand why he's not getting more of a go atm.

  84. Holty01 says:

    Amazing how this game works. It really is a game of what if’s. All week I was bringing in Cameron until Constable was dropped. The only player I had to replace him was Atkins so decided to strengthen the midfield instead. I’m sure everyone has these moments through the season but it still is frustrating

    • The Ranger says:

      I flipped a coin between Cameron and Cogs and it came down in Cameron’s favour Holty.
      Then I bottled it and got Cogs anyway.
      Doh!

      • Maverick_ says:

        went with cameron 15min before the bounce Holty very happy with todays game but was nervous when he was reported to have went off with a shoulder injury! he should beat up on a few teams this year. Unfortunately i also went sic over Lloyd purely for the bye, Ouch!

  85. Shake_n_bake says:

    Oliver played the least minutes out of every single Melbourne player!! Last 5 mins on the pine when the game was up for grabs. Really week effort.

    • Derek says:

      I was just behind the interchange, he was standing there for 5 mins waving his arms, but no one could get off. He had a slow start, a few handballs missing targets, but was very good in 3rd quarter.

  86. Shake_n_bake says:

    Gawn takes two strong grabs in the last 5 minutes aswell gets -5.

  87. Maverick_ says:

    brayshaw for three weeks i've held held held now today was the final straw. Viney out and still couldn't ton up!

    • Russty_ says:

      Don't blame ya Mav, he has been disappointing and started out great too in the match, I punted him weeks ago and glad I did.

      • Maverick_ says:

        yeah paint the fence this week. I should've done the same mate but just kept telling myself he'd come good as he wasn't losing much $$. but today was his last straw

    • hedski says:

      Yeah it hurts Mav but I'm just gonna hold and hope he comes good or luxury trade when the rookies are upgraded.

      • Maverick_ says:

        your stronger than me Hedski. if no more glaring holes in my 22 show up between now and sunday night he's turning into neale, macrae, jkelly or fyfe. i seem to be one uber short in the guts with oliver & brayshaw under performing everyweek

        • hedski says:

          I have Cogs and Bray doing the same, Cogs been serviceable but not hitting the heights I need.

  88. Good win by the lads lucky ? yes and the turnovers by both was poor. When you are down you will take an ugly win . Lockhard may develope. cheers boys

    • Russty_ says:

      Yeah good ugly win mate but they were desperate to defend at the end and that got em over the line.
      Lockhart did well today, unfortunately I don't get his score, should've loopholed Duursma with Burgess but at least had Hore on field.

    • Tommy says:

      Bloody hawks stuffed my tip. Good to see the dees get up though, hopefully they can build a bit of momentum off that. Well done Lockhart, doesn’t make me feel so stupid anymore.

    • hedski says:

      Great grinding win NDD, tipped your boys this week. 👍

  89. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Who to captain after Gawn VC failure? Fyfe Cripps or Macrae? Leaning towards Cripps at the moment, reckon he can do some damage with Ben Jacobs out of the side, although im worried that Zeibell and Anderson will double team him like they did Rockliff last week

    • Ken says:

      127 is still a good captaincy score

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I'm taking the 127 since 125 is my cut off score.

      • Russty_ says:

        Same here John..127 is a solid score, can relax about it now.

      • AuroraBorealis?! says:

        130 is usually my cut off, but that is depending on if there's other good captaincy options. I suppose 127 really isn't too bad

        • Hawks says:

          wtf

          130 is an acceptable VC score, and 127 'really isn't too bad'. Its 3 pts difference, 127 is an excellent score, and totally acceptable to use for the big C

          • AuroraBorealis?! says:

            Well, yeah. The idea of having a cutoff is to establish a score at which you take the loophole option. 3 points difference is nothing, but then you could say that if your cutoff was 125, that taking a score of 122 is fine, and so on and so forth, until your score could be barely above 100. A cut off point is just an arbitrary framework to use for deciding a C score, I just use 130 as a vague idea, you have to choose a bottom line somewhere.

      • hedski says:

        I'm starting to lean towards your 125+ now JD after starting the season with a 130+ cutoff, been a few that have fell thru after not banking decent scores.
        At the moment I'm watching how Neale scores as a few of my opponents have the C on him and I don't have him.
        Will probably take Gawn.

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          Hi hedski, you won't regret it, I've used that score for a few years now and it's just a lot easier, I don't even have to think about it, 125 and over I take and anything under 125 means I go with who I have the C on.

    • Stupid Coach says:

      I have the same dilemma Aurora. One of my league opponents had Gawn as Captain while another had Grundy so I am leaning towards taking Gawn's score so that I don't lose ground/slightly make up ground. However, I am also very tempted to leave it on Cripps based on how poorly North are playing.

    • JugHead says:

      My opponent has Neale as captain. I don't have Neale.
      Gunna stick with Max for now, and wait and see if Neale goes real big (looking a bit unlikely). If not I'll stick with Max.
      If Neale goes nuts, only then will I think about switching to Fyfe tomorrow.

      • Russty_ says:

        He'd probably need to get off 67 first, I'd take Gawn's score.

        • JugHead says:

          Just checked his current score. Yeah………..
          Didn't think I'd be able to afford him now. There might be an opportunity coming up soon.

  90. Shake_n_bake says:

    Old news parfett comes in for Selwood

  91. Holty01 says:

    To the Lockhart owners who bought him in last week and were upset with their decision, amazing what 1 week will do.🤩

  92. Hawks says:

    Anyone else get Rich in this week?

  93. TommyC99 says:

    A late out and constable still couldn't get in the side? Little worrying but i think im still set on punting Scott instead. If Hately is named next week and Constable isnt punting him without losing the scoring potential at M6 looks real nice

    • dontblushbaby says:

      There might be more involved with Constable , I've only heard a rumour , but not going to confirm or deny

  94. TommyC99 says:

    Whats up with Heeney? I'm not watching the game but checked scores and hes scored 4pts in a 35min quarter

  95. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Turds littering the SC landscape this week. Sicily, Neale, Brayshaw, Heeney, Lloyd, and counting. VC disasters. This round is turning into a blood bath.

    • TommyC99 says:

      Glad i only have Heeney out of that bunch. Praying Libba, Dunks and Macrae don't join them tonight

    • Russty_ says:

      Neale and Lloyd not too bad in the end mate, Heeney was very average today.

      • Maverick_ says:

        Libba adding to the turds what is his job role has it changed the last 2-3 weeks?

        • Russty_ says:

          I haven't even seen him…I have Daniel as well, both don't seem to be in the game much, always the second half I guess!

        • Browncow says:

          He looked lost last week amongst the bigger Freo mids. Hardly seen him tonight. Thought about the trade but Whitfield/Scrimshaw made that impossible. How good does Stack look?

  96. Ja191 says:

    why is neale always 30 sc above his dt i don't get it

    • Hawks says:

      Most of his disposals are contested, and some are clearances.

      SC is a more realistic indication of a players impact on the game.

  97. Tommo09 says:

    Cripps Danger or Fyfe C?

    • Maverick_ says:

      Cripps may have a field day against norths avg midfield…
      I've taken Gawns VC but did have the C on crippa before that

  98. Maverick_ says:

    looks like dunkley has got those midfield minutes back the last couple weeks. has looked very good tonight, the 2nd half especially

  99. TommyC99 says:

    Surely time for Libba to go? Looked well below his standards tonight

    • Maverick_ says:

      He's on my shortlist for sure Tommy.
      was selected as a stepping stone so his probably done his job for us and not far away from being upgraded

    • Jeffrey says:

      Yep it’s time to go

      Libba to Macrae

    • Derek says:

      Yep. Libba to Boak next week. I can’t go without Boak for any longer. Saw Travis at breakfast this morning at the hotel I was staying at and told him I was going to get him in my SuperCoach team next week. So I have to now.

      • TommyC99 says:

        Like it Derek. Although next week looks promising on the rookie front. Could it be a double downgrade week? Libba should have a high BE tho so might not have a choice

  100. cash_cows says:

    Think i'm dropping my VC limit to 120 because this is so frustrating.

  101. TKC says:

    Do I replace either Walsh or B.Crouch with Stack’s 95, or leave them on the field? Nice score for an emergency…..

    • Pranav says:

      I’d definitely take it 95 is a really good score. The benching part is hard but I’d bench crouch

    • Derek says:

      Take it

    • JEL says:

      Same dilemma. Definitely taking it, leaning towards Walsh.
      He's been scaled to 103, so I'm not letting that go.
      Just hope to make the right call regarding who to bench.

    • Twilightingale says:

      I’d bench Walsh for a guaranteed 103. B Crouch has a much high ceiling, although in saying that hasn’t gone big this year despite good numbers.

      If Walsh scored 103 you would take that any day, why risk the guaranteed points. If Walsh outscores Stack, unlikely it’ll be by much

    • DavidC says:

      Yeh, take it. Bench Walsh.

      • TKC says:

        B.Crouch better have a blinder, as Walsh sure is – 62 at half time! May have benched the wrong one 🙁

  102. Jeffrey says:

    It’s make or break:

    I’m down atm in my comp

    My competitor has taken Gawns score as VC as C

    I have either Danger or Cripps to choose from?

    Who is the best option, Selwood is out, Cripps vs North

    Who would you choose to go BIG?

  103. COREYSC says:

    After Hayes 49, looks like I’ll have to roll the dice on Gibbons tomorrow and Hope Cripps pulls through as skipper not enough from Macrae tonight

    • Pranav says:

      Did the same thing VC macrae E Hayes gonna keep gibbons on field and put the C on cripps

      • Derek says:

        I had E on Hayes. But I can still choose between Atkins or Gibbons?

        Going Danger as C

        • hedski says:

          Tossing up Atkins and Gibbons as well Derek.
          Thinking Gibbons even though I think the roos will win.

          • COREYSC says:

            I’m heading down to the G today Hedski watch the boys! Hopefully they get the job done today against the Bombers

        • Pranav says:

          I have Atkins as well but we haven’t seen the ceiling from Atkins that gibbons had in his one good game

        • COREYSC says:

          I thought Atkins’ role had changed in the Easter Monday game he played a lot of midfield time and scored in the 70’s but Gibbons’ role has changed to high half forward and its remained the same so i’ll Go with Gibbons

    • Saritz says:

      Back in Gibbons. With the outs I suspect he’ll get some good mid time.

  104. Derek says:

    Shake. I see we are Head 2 head again this week, this time in Guns and Rookies league.

    With Sunday games to come, predicted scores are 1 point different.

    Looks like you only have Walsh +344, I have Danger, Merrett, Sloane and Laird.

    You have Danger but I have him as C.

    Another thriller

    • Holty01 says:

      I think you might have him Derek

    • Going to be close that one ,Runs on the board gives it to Shake –just keep an eye on it

      • Derek says:

        We have played against each other 4 weeks in a row in different leagues. Shake leads 1-2. Most weeks only separated by a few points.

        • Shake_n_bake says:

          Did you trade Walsh for Hayes this week Derek? Walsh to ton up today 😉

          • Derek says:

            Walsh and Burgess out for Laird and Hayes this week.

            Been a big fan of Walsh, never left my pre season team. Sad to see him go.

            He was at M8, I had Rocky at M6 and Libba at M7, the other two seemed more like keepers… maybe. Needed a bit of room in the guts for some cash and to fit JKelly next week (those plans just got shelved) Missed all the Richmond boys, so jumped on Hayes.

            • Shake_n_bake says:

              only 1 trade so far this week Skrimshaw for Sicily mainly purely for buy rds. Could pull the trigger on Walsh to Fyfe still thou but most likely with a low BE will stick with what l have. Good luck. I might join you behind ur couch 🛋

    • Derek says:

      Maybe a late switch to Crips as C is in the cards

    • AuroraBorealis?! says:

      god i hope you didn't keep the C on Danger Derek

  105. Holty01 says:

    I wonder what par is looking like this week? 2200 maybe?

  106. Ken says:

    Thoughts on Bont as a top 8 mid this season?

  107. Mark Fawcett says:

    Gone early on Walsh and traded him and Constable to Fyfe & Hayes. Hoping this doesn't bite me hard??!! 189,000 left over. Upgrade Libba next week

    • Derek says:

      Can’t see why that would bite you. Fyfe should our score Walsh

      I traded Walsh to Laird this week.

      Wanted Sicily but that meant trading out Libba, there is a bite mark

  108. COREYSC says:

    I feel like every round this season has been a real
    Scrap to get to 2,150-2,250 range of a score

    • Saritz says:

      I’m struggling this week. I may not even get 2150! Looks like a fall outside the top 1000 🙁

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Apart from round five, when I scored 2248, I seem stuck in a 2100 – 2150 range.

  109. TelescopicCox says:

    Can we talk about Balta’s 59! He’s actually going to make some money

  110. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Ups and downs.

    Just logged on and got a rippa of a surprise to see Lockhart with an 80 against hos name. Covers Whitfield.

    Butters with a 30 errk .

  111. The Ranger says:

    Did anyone watch the Doggies game?
    Did Libba and Dunkley swap positions?

    • Lazza says:

      I watched it to half time … Dunkley was playing mid whilst Bont played mostly forward… Libba seemed to be lost .. seems like he was told to tag Cotchin.. and ran around trying to find him..

      • COREYSC says:

        I thought he was tagging Dusty

        • Lazza says:

          He probably was … just seemed like he didn’t have a set opponent .. but I only saw half the game ..

      • Beezneez says:

        This is what Dunkley can score when he plays mid. Glad I didn't get rid of him and hope the time in the guts continues.

        • The Ranger says:

          Hard to know what's gonna happen with the Dogs mids eh Beez?
          Libba was going along fine, now Dunkley pops up, Bont is killing it now but who know when he'll get put forward again, Macrae has gone quiet, so has Hunter.
          Staying away from Dogs players. They're like Hawks used to be.

    • I reluctantly culled him Ranger for Fyfe.He was always a cash cow and Fyfe a champ

  112. Lazza says:

    I’m having one of those “gonna” weekends … was gonna bring in Sicily, didn’t, was the gonna bring in Heeney, didn’t, was then gonna bring in Houli… didn’t… went with a rookie up back to plug a donut … now I’m gonna bring in Fyfe for Constable … I think…

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Hey Lazza, I just noticed we are playing against each other in two leagues, looks about even at the moment.

      • Lazza says:

        Hey John, yeh not much in it .. with so many so called premos not performing each week it has become a bit of a lottery … good luck buddy..

    • Derek says:

      One good thing, we all know to bring in Whitfield in 3 weeks, he plays this week and next week, should drop to around $500k. Get him in for The Melbourne game, Suns after that.

  113. dontblushbaby says:

    Those with Constable ,he still could in today, the VFL team plays at 11.50am

  114. Pman says:

    I foolishly had the VC on Rockliff on Friday night so need to get my Captain right this week so who do the Community think is a better choice as Captain over Cripps or Danger, both of scored a disappointing 93 last week? Also who to start as M8 over Gibbons or Atkins? Cheers…

  115. chuck_a_spekky says:

    In a close game. Take Gawn's 127 or put the C on Fyfe, Cripps or Danger? Opposition has the C on Cripps. Panic!

    • Cpt Pugwash says:

      Bit a late for my reply but 127 and you can stop all the worry – 254pts is a great score.

      You can sit back and just enjoy the game then.

  116. Holty01 says:

    Cripps down. Noooooo.
    Still onfield but struggling after knock.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Only three of my nine opponents have him as C, so it doesn't help me as much as I thought it might.

      • Lazza says:

        2 of them are me 😢

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          Not the way I wanted to win against you Lazza, but boy do I need a win in the JR Mega-League, it's the only league I haven't won a game in.Most of my other leagues I have 2-4 wins

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          Looks like it all worked out in the end Lazza, with Cripps coming back, now we're back to having a close one.

          • Lazza says:

            I’ve got no idea how we are tracking … SC seems to be down at the moment ..

          • Lazza says:

            You’ve cleaned me up JD… ROB has been a great selection .. well done .. back to the drawing board for me ..

            • JohnDJ59 says:

              Thanks Lazza, you caught me on a good weekend,for me at least, seeing a lot of low scores, not often I end up the highest scorer in most of my leagues. O'Brien has been great, took a chance putting him in at R2 when he was on the bubble, but he's scoring well and making heaps of cash.

    • The unsullied says:

      What happened to him.

    • Derek says:

      He will come good

  117. Connor says:

    Took the VC off Gawn and put it on Neale 2 minutes before the Melbourne game. Took the C off Fyfe and put it on Cripps 2 minutes before the Carlton Game.
    Sums it up…

  118. TommyC99 says:

    Is Cripps even playing?

  119. DavidC says:

    Walsh on 37 at Qtr time. A lot traded him out for a premo.

    • Derek says:

      He is playing in defence. Without Simpson and Newman, Seeing a lot of it.

      I traded him out. It was a toss up between Walsh and Libba.

    • Shake_n_bake says:

      Walsh only had a BE of 33 would make about 20k this week

  120. Jeff says:

    Who to put the C on Fyfe or Danger?

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Well the way Cripps is going as my VC it leaves me with little choice to go to Danger.

      • TommyC99 says:

        hes had a large quarter so far. What does he need to get to for ya to keep crippas score? Having to make your decision at 3 quarter time makes it a little tricky

        • TOPHAWK1 says:

          It will be touch and go now. If Cripps is close to 100 nearing 3/4 time I can buy myself some time and bypass Danger and put the C on Fyfe. Cripps can then play out the game as VC and hopefully get to 140 as a minimum. If he falls short, I will captain Fyfe. I need a big VC or C score to beat a number of opponents in my leagues. A 125 wont cut it. 140+ minimum.

    • Ja191 says:

      fyfe

  121. TommyC99 says:

    What does Gibbons need to be on at 3 quarter time in order to take his score over Atkins?

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      Think I'm going to take it. He's on 50 right now with a quarter to go. Probably not much risk in taking it.

  122. hedski says:

    Carn the cattas 👍🍻

  123. dontblushbaby says:

    Danger hobbling off the ground !

  124. Holty01 says:

    Thank you Crippa for saving me. 110 points in 3 quarters has made me fairly happy 😊

  125. TOPHAWK1 says:

    if I take Crippsies VC score I will lose a lot of my leagues but save my round and salvage a decent score. What are others doing? Fyfe C? Or throw the C band to Matty Crouch at home?

    • Brn says:

      I'd go fyfe if i had the option

    • Holty01 says:

      Who do you still have Hawk to loophole?

    • Finnius says:

      Take it. Scaled up to 123 in a tough week is more than enough for a captaincy score.

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Going to run with Fyfe as C. Charlie Constable is now locked on my bench. Forgot about that when I tried to stretch Cripps out as VC for his whole game. Thought I could buy the time to do it by putting C on Fyfe. And passing over Danger as C. Almost worked, except like Dangerfield, Constable also plays for Geelong. At least its kind of lucky, as if I had not made that little over sight mistake, I be stuck with Danger as C now. Go Fyfey!! Dont repeat what you did to me in round two mate when I had you captain last. LOL

  126. Holty01 says:

    Oh dear. Maybe I should of fielded Atkins instead of taking Rocky’s score. He has started well

  127. Brn says:

    I know par is sort of subjective due to rank, but is 2200 better than average this week?

    • Holty01 says:

      I would think so

    • Finnius says:

      It's a pretty tough week – anything above 2150 will be a good score I think looking around my leagues. 2200 is good, and 2250 will be top 1%.

    • redherringfc says:

      With Danger knocking about a solid 26, 2200 is a great score.

      I’m now tracking for around 2150 which I’m hoping is around the top 10%.

  128. Brn says:

    Who doesn't have dangerfield? He can score as lo2 as he likes imo, will just weed out the poor souls that made him C 🙁

    • Holty01 says:

      I think nearly everyone who cares for SC will have him. I think the only ones who have the right to be upset will be the ones who plonked the C on him.

  129. Ja191 says:

    if kelly was neale he'd be on about 120 at this point

  130. BrownlowBoy says:

    Essendon cheer squad supporters are actually terrible

  131. Finnius says:

    What a rough week. Who has Danger as captain…?

    • Derek says:

      Yep. Tossed up all day between danger and Cripps. Oh well.

      • Pranav says:

        It’s annoying cause danger generally does well without Selwood. There was a game without Selwood where he scored 196 against GWS

  132. Dave says:

    Ret ards cant even tag fyfe

    • Dave says:

      Ellis yo a complete hack for the job. Pushes mcrouch to outside mid too. Pathetic resource use by Adelaide, they deserve to lose

  133. Tommo09 says:

    Sounds crazy but would it be worth trading Danger out and getting him back when he hits some form. He’s gonna lose a lot of cash and has being playing injured recently

  134. Lazza says:

    I reckon there will be massive trades on Danger this week.. problem is … who the hell do we trade to … the FWDs as a whole are useless group this year.

  135. Shake_n_bake says:

    Atkins 7 touches so far in the last for 9pts. Is it because it’s Atkins?

  136. Brn says:

    Roughly 2150 this week. Ranked top 1000. Will I drop?

  137. RoyWetard says:

    A pathetic 52 from Dangerfield! At least I didn't (looks at team) no, oh no, OH NO! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH GOD, NO!

  138. redherringfc says:

    I need this game to end.

    Only 1 matchup that isn’t certain. If Mundy and Laird outscore M Crouch by 140, I’m done.

  139. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Miers Loving ya work you hairy little wee rippa.

  140. Shake_n_bake says:

    Wow M Crouch 39 touches for 87 pts

    • Brn says:

      Thats harsh but supercoach. I had him too and think he should have gone a little better. You see players absolutely give their all around the ground and score no points in sc. All that energy/pressure acts and no points makes you think sometimes

    • gator59 says:

      Champion Data blokes don't seem to have him other wise he would've scored around the 140 points

      • Shake_n_bake says:

        That’s why l said last week in the 1st 5 mins Neale had 2 handballs 1 free against and was on 12. Crouch brothers would be -1

    • SamuraiPizzaCat says:

      97 pts, low disposal efficiency held his score back, bit of a bummer I also have him

  141. KSinny says:

    About 2070 for me this week, ranked 3k atm thinking I'm gonna drop more. How'd everyone else score?

  142. Maverick_ says:

    very average week for me looking at 2150.
    Reilly O'Brien and jeremy cameron the heros for me at R2 banked 400k with this move and has actually outscored goldy the past two rounds since making the move. Cameron over TKelly was a nice move but still think i need him in soon!
    Sicily, brayshaw, danger & libba the villians for me all under performing.
    how did everybody else's round finish up?

    • KSinny says:

      Think that's a decent score this week mate, only 2070 for me.

    • Rocksta_ says:

      2182. Only 2 people in my league scored over 2150. I reckon around 2100 is par

    • Holty01 says:

      Massive by ROB mate. Good work. I’m only playing him as a cash cow. Surely Don Pyke and the Crows see reason and don’t bring back Jacobs. ROB is a far better ruckman imo

      • Maverick_ says:

        I hope your right Holty i don't watch many crows games but the stats and SC scores he puts up seems to suggest he is putting up a serious case for #1 ruck even when jacobs is fit. I'd hate too see ROB have another 50-80k+ in him and be dropped pre byes.

    • Nath123 says:

      Only scored 2030 but won all my leagues

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      2098 for me. Left about 35 points on my ruck bench this week. How good is ROB!! Cash cow on steroids. LOL

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      2219, my second highest score for the year and finally out of the 2100-2150 range, won all nine league games, not seeing many scores over 2200

      • Maverick_ says:

        nice score John! that'll rocket you up the rankings mate

      • Holty01 says:

        awesome John. Great work.

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          Thanks Maverick and Holty, my players scores were all over the place, but the ones that did it for me would have been having the VC on Gawn, Williams 140, Dunkley 134, Kelly 120 and having O'Brien 123 and Stack 103 on the field, plus I can see Hore being my D6 for a while yet.

          • Russty_ says:

            Smashed it Johnny, great score this week..what might have been without Danger's crud ay..haha

            • JohnDJ59 says:

              Thanks Russty, moving on up the rankings from 67,776 three weeks ago to 24,389 now after having a round rank of 712 for this week, also great to be getting some league wins the last three weeks. At least most people have Danger, I feel sorry for the ones that had the C on him, but they also had a lot of other players they could of picked before his game.

              • Russty_ says:

                True that John, I think 125 is a very realistic cutoff for the VC, hence I chose Gawn's this week, Danger has been a bit unreliable this year playing so much forward, not mr dependable anymore it seems.
                Same here with the League wins mate, starting to move up a bit myself too, except for my own JR Mega-League where I currently sit 17th hahaha, but overall it's ranked 102 0f 27006.
                Just can't seem to beat anyone in my own League LOL

                • JohnDJ59 says:

                  Yes, I'm keeping you off the bottom in your league Russty, at least I finally had a win in that one this week, in all my other leagues I'm on three or four wins, mainly due to my last three weeks of good scoring. I'm at a bit of a lose as what to do this week, whether to keep getting the bubble boys in or go for an upgrade. Answorth and Hately look good, but not sure about their JS, plus I would really like to bring in either Bont or Fyfe as well.

                  • Russty_ says:

                    With Answerth, I'd wait and see if Bailey and Andrews get back in this week, and I can tell you from experience, going double downgrade one week, to double upgrade the next week is very satisfying.
                    I managed to do it this week with money left over haha.
                    Yeah it's strange isn't it with Leagues, some of them, I'm 6th and others I'm almost bottom.
                    Still, it's better than playing with dudes who give up during the year.
                    I started with Fyfe, despite the scary-ness, but Bont is looking very good, wouldn't mind Libba to Bont.

                    • JohnDJ59 says:

                      That should have been loss in my last post, I really should check it before I post it. I've been getting most of the players on the bubble the last few weeks, Stack, O'Brien in round 5, Ross round 6 and Hayes this round, you just don't know when they will stop, so the temptation is there to keep getting them, but I am really light on in the mids so will probably go one rookie one premo. I would be moving Libba on, he's losing money and not scoring all that well either.

                    • Russty_ says:

                      Have to think about getting rock solid keepers in your side from here on in I reckon mate….rookies are good but won't bring you home in the end.
                      Last week I went Scrimshaw and Constable to Daniel and Westhoff.
                      Happy to dump 2 rookies for 2 hopefully keepers.

    • iamme says:

      2136 Considering I had Rocky, Libba. Heeny and obviously Patty D, not too shabby.

    • SamuraiPizzaCat says:

      2193 for me, which seems to be the highest I can see in my leagues, low scoring week

    • Rocksta_ says:

      2193 after final corrections. 2nd highest in my league. Only one person over 2200

      • Russty_ says:

        Really good score Rocksta, how many places up did you move this week?

        • Rocksta_ says:

          Thanks Russty. Around 6000 mate. I’m into the top 5000 now. Had an ordinary start to the season but have been climbing the ranks over the last 3 weeks. Hopefully it continues.
          Need to start planning for byes now. My rank was decimated by the byes last season.

    • The Ranger says:

      2150 looks about par Mav.
      2010 for me, my team stinks, gonna be a long year…

      • Rocksta_ says:

        I reckon par is lower Ranger. Only 2 people above 2150 in my league. More around 2100 I reckon.

    • Russty_ says:

      2182 here Mav..was golfing this arvo, what the heck happened with Danger!…did he do his knee or something horrible?

      • Maverick_ says:

        nice one that is decent!
        yeah not sure the details mate but it was a knee injury yeah unsure on the extent of it
        hoping it's not too serious though i have enough to deal with

        • Russty_ says:

          Well done too this week mate, wow I was stunned when I saw Danger's 26..glad I didn't captain him, sympathies to those that did.
          Most of my other players did pretty week today, shame I have ROB stuck on the bench lol.

          • Maverick_ says:

            jumped 6000 places now russty sitting at 8000 slowly climbing.
            I think alot of people ahead of me musta had the C on danger.
            that's why i always take 125+ now and locked in gawn I'd be burnt earlier in the year, not again no thank you.

            • Russty_ says:

              I hear you Mav, Gawn was locked in for me too, anything can happen in Sunday Games, and usually does, I jumped 10000 this week to 12000, heading in the right direction 🙂

          • Marcus says:

            2179 for me. Shocked to see me with a rank of 472. (Ranked no. 1145 last week)

            • Russty_ says:

              Beauty Marcus!…keep it going , great start to the season.

              • Marcus says:

                Thanks Russty ! All the best to you too .

                • Russty_ says:

                  I'm jealous mate…you just need to manage your team now so you don't do anything silly…( a good start is very important)
                  So think about your trades and save em when you can.
                  From past experience, the hardest thing is to have a great start in Supercoach.

            • Holty01 says:

              Great work Marcus. Keep pumping out those scores mate.

    • NoLanguage96 says:

      2169 for me, not too bad considering the terrible scores from Danger, Heeney and Libba

  143. Holty01 says:

    I needed 115 from Sloane to win my cash league game. He had a massive last quarter so hopefully CD will be generous with a few extra points. But I think asking for 6 might be a bit too many

  144. RoyWetard says:

    When Josh Dunkley is your highest scoring player you're gonna have a bad time.

  145. COREYSC says:

    What do the Crouch Brothers have to do to tonne up! 39 Touches for Matt 97pts
    31 Touches for Brad 79pts

    Those two may have to get 100 touches between them to score 100 each

    • _Kyle says:

      Mcrouch is a bigger butcher than treloar.

      Bcrouch was absolutely robbed. 0 points in the 4th and then had his final score scaled down to 79

    • redherringfc says:

      Kick/hand ball it to their own players, from what I saw.

  146. Holty01 says:

    Well done Colin (The Instagator) in our cash league. You just got me. Great score as well

  147. UpBeat says:

    Butters beat Dangers score, what a round !!

  148. Kewbie Bear says:

    Can't wait to rage trade most of my team!!

  149. Will says:

    Who goes first out of Libba, B Crouch and Rocky?

  150. Fearthebeard says:

    Is rocky trade time?

    • Holty01 says:

      Not for me mate. He looked a bit injured on the weekend so will hold. I’m happy to keep him around until I have no other problems to fix in my team.

  151. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    What s hit week, only ended up on 2070. Whats par looking like this week? How did everyone else do

  152. silversovereign says:

    2175. Ranked 803.

  153. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Congrats to Derek and Russty. Derek pumped me in draft and Russty pumped me in classic. I threw kitchen sinks around but it was in vain. Well played.

  154. hedski says:

    2094 for me 6/10 league wins, lost a six pack.
    Atkins on ground over Gibbons and it would have been 9/10, gained a six pack.
    Coulda, woulda, didn't.
    Wouldn't have caught Gator anyway, great score mate <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="👍" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/1f44d.svg"&gt;.
    Very happy with the cattas.

  155. Finnius says:

    Up to rank 111 with what I thought was a pretty mediocre score of 2135… Double downgrade on the cards this week I think (Liberatore is going to bleed cash if we don't let him go, and Petrucelle is maxed out). Hately and Answerth in via some DPP magic. Lloyd and Boak in next week. Onwards and upwards :)))

    How did everyone else go/what are we planning?

  156. Catman says:

    2145 not great, but better than some. Rough week for sc!
    Those catters though!! unbelievable start to the year!!

  157. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Same team.

    Put Whitfield and constable back on the ground – projected 2370 this week. lol.

    Was a fair way short of that score 🙂

  158. Russty_ says:

    ROB 200k in 3 weeks…gotta love that!…and more to come, and thanks to Dimma too, Balta's actually making a bit of money now haha

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Reilly O'Brien is a freak. Who needs Goldy when you have Mumford and ROB fighting over the R2 pozzie in the TH side. One thing is certain. Grundy at R1. After that it is points and more points. And cash, cash, cash and more cash!

      • Russty_ says:

        I've Got Gawn, Goldy and ROB Hawk, I'm happy with Goldy for now but he better keep up the good scoring cause ROB's pressuring him for R2 haha, one of them will become a premo forward soon.

        • TOPHAWK1 says:

          I grabbed Mummy at $320K and ROB at $136K. And the Hoff this week at $393K. Its all happening!

          • Russty_ says:

            Some good bargain Rucks there Hawker, Mummy would've tonned up easy if not for the frees against this week, aka clangers.
            Go the Hoff!

      • You forgot Maxy toppa but I am not sure about Grundy His value may be in trading him Rob for R2 with All Australian no.1 ruck MAX GAWN with Bines R3 bring in Boak and Westhoff with coin gained then get grundy at Round 14 .

    • Holty01 says:

      Although he is wasted on the bench for me, he is certainly an option to maybe keep for the byes…….. maybe

  159. Russty_ says:

    Big shout-out to (Team) Holt…Holty!…
    Ranked 19th overall and number one in the JR Community Group.
    Fantastic effort mate, you're killing it, keep the good work up buddy.
    Keep pushing and don't run out of trades mate.

    • Derek says:

      Rare air mate. What has been the reason for your success?

      • Holty01 says:

        The community. 😉

        • AuroraBorealis?! says:

          Almost an identical team to me Holt, except you have Neale, Hurn and Boak instead of Oliver, Laird and Heeney. Isn't it crazy that 3 premo's can be the difference between 19th and 5000th+. Congrats on an excellent season so far mate, hope you can be down there at the pointy end

    • Rocksta_ says:

      Well done Holty. Keep it up mate

    • The Ranger says:

      Onya Holty, good luck mate

    • gator59 says:

      Wow that's a great effort Holty .. Keep it up mate

    • Great for the team Holty A fine reward for effort NDD

    • Holty01 says:

      Cheers mate and thanks all for the encouragement. A long way to go though. As the old saying says, ‘it’s not a sprint it’s a marathon’.

      • Derek says:

        Gives us something.

        What was your best POD started?

        • Holty01 says:

          Hurn, Sloane have been my biggest PODs I guess.
          Sticking to my research this preseason and not panic trading rookies after a bad game. I don’t have Rozee but happy I saved the trade.
          Made 2 sideways trades early. Heeney to Kelly after rd2. Wasn’t happy rd3 but has made up for it. Getting Boak in rd4 for Dunkley happy with as well but may try to bring him back soon with him now getting mid time.
          24 trades left and got Fyfe this week. Slowly building to full premo.
          Next decision is do I bring In Westhoff or Dunkley.🤔

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Well done Holty, keep it going mate, we might have to name you The Godfather.

  160. gator59 says:

    Anyone thinking of trading Walsh to get an uber premo in

  161. Russty_ says:

    Here's a League update for most Leagues I'm in, am very proud to be a part of it, some great coaches in the mix.
    Current League ranks as per pre round 8.

    Have another League but there are a few dropping the ball in there unfortunately.
    Well done to all who are participating in my entered Leagues this year, it inspires us all to do the best we can with your excellence.

    • AuroraBorealis?! says:

      Agreed with that other unnamed league Russty, you know if i'm 5-0 that something is going very wrong haha

      • Russty_ says:

        Hey mate!…ride the success!…most teams in there are trying. 🙂
        A few aren't , but sometimes life gets in the way…and all that jazz.

        • AuroraBorealis?! says:

          What do you mean by life Russty? Are you getting confused with the word "supercoach"?

          • Russty_ says:

            If they were thinking about Supercoach mate, they wouldn't be averaging 1920 and 1613, but hey, only the top 16 go through anyway so it should still be a competitive finals series.

    • Holty01 says:

      Nice work to all. And just a sneaky shout out to my league (Lek & Patches rabble) sitting at 35.

    • Shake_n_bake says:

      Had a couple of teams that capt Danger in my league this week. Could have sat a little higher with a bit more luck

    • WTFoxtrot_58 says:

      I am one of the ball droppers Russty is referring to.
      Haven't given up but had a few shanks and just can't drop a putt.
      Still trying though.

      • don't think Russty would take it that way He knows more than most about luck .Just look at Derek's captain's choices last year ,they were being kod for 14 in the first minutes ,though nothing has changed,He had danger as C. Sorry Derek . If coaches are unlucky and committed ,then that's fine. I made a final last year playing a dropout and hated it. Best of luck Foxy NDD

        • Derek says:

          cheers NDD. its frustrating as early in the season as a few hundred points can be 10k in rank.

      • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

        The back 9 is more friendly.

        Less trees, less water and more player friendly.

        Should be able to get back on the fairway and make a late charge on the way home

      • Russty_ says:

        Hey WTF, no offence intended , and I wasn't referring to you, you're doing ok, keep slugging it out and you'll turn it around, think the guy averaging 1600 is either very unlucky or not trying too hard though.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Hi Russty, the Sons league is very competitive this year, not much in it either. Surprised the Barron is at the bottom, I thought he would have been doing better than that. Had a few not turn up this year, so I had to add a couple from the Sun to make up the numbers.

      • Russty_ says:

        Hi John, I don't mind a few Celeb players in there, yeah Barron seems to be having a tough time of it, he should turn it around though.

  162. Derek says:

    Ohhhhh Danger got injured twice today. I saw the anckle, but I had to go away for a bit and didn’t realise he hurt his knee as well. Didn’t think anckle looked that bad.

    He could have done what he did against the hawks on one leg! Stupid C choice

  163. Ned_Starkers says:

    Got $500k bank but still planning on going down to Hately and Answerth for a double upgrade next week, but is there any premos where this is the must get week?
    I didn’t really see any…

  164. Lazza says:

    Not sure which way to go this week… Have $600k+, so can afford a Premo on any line … Currently have 3 keepers in DEF, 6 in MID, and 3 up FWD with GawnStein as the RUCs. Thinking one of Hurn, Sicily, Lloyd, Bont, Merrett, (gone off Josh Kelly), Boak, CalebD or Mundy.
    Only thing is that the DEFs are all likely to be cheaper next week, as will Merrett.

    Is having 7 Premos in place at this time wise? or should I focus on building DEF and/or FWD?

    BTW – my keeper MIDs are Neale, Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, MCrouch and Oliver. (a Claytons premo at the moment).

    • Holty01 says:

      Hi Lazza. Honestly I think the best value this week is in the forward line. Grab a fallen premo there and you should still have a bit in the bank to upgrade another line sooner.

      • Lazza says:

        Thx Holty, I’m struggling to find fallen premos up fwd … already have Danger who is the biggest, I have Kelly and Dunkley too … who to get? Menegola, Heeney, Hawkins present a bye issue, … which leaves The Hoff, Maclean, Gunston, Darling and Devon Smith …
        Otherwise it’s a player like Boak, Cameron and Mundy who are above their price..
        Who would you pick?

        • Holty01 says:

          The Hoff is a gamble but worth the risk I think. The 2 I really like however is Dunkley and Cameron. Cameron was coming into my team last week but with Constable not playing, I decided to bring in Fyfe

          • Lazza says:

            Thx Holty.. I did same re Fyfe and Constable … I was looking at Heeney or Boak prior .. will wait on both of them now as I expect both to lose $$… and probably bring Boak in after his R12 bye…
            Cameron is appealing … there has only been one SC season in the last 15 where a KPP hasn’t finished in the Top 6 FWDs.

    • The Ranger says:

      In a similar boat Lazza and can't decide whether to paint the fence or just double downgrade.
      Pretty much locked in Answerth and tempted by Corbett as there doesn't look to be many other fwd rookies in the pipeline.
      If I do paint the fence then I'm leaning toward the Bont, I'd rather pick up a 530-550K premo but he's just so SC friendly.
