SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 9

Published by Kev on

Round 9 is upon us community and we’ve only got *checks fixture* … 11 more weeks of utter pain and humiliation before SuperCoach finals begin (but I did beat Lek in a head to head on the weekend!). It was another weird week in SuperCoach land with some yuggggge scores from Tim and Josh Kelly, Oliver, Dunks, Macrae, Grundy, and Sloane seeing teams smash out 2,300 with ease. There was also some not so yuuuuuge scores from, well… pretty much everyone in my side.  

Without a standout downgrade option this week you’ve gotta know when to hold and when to fold in this caper, community, and this is a week to hold on downgrades. Having a full team of 29 or 30 players available for the bye weeks is crucial and you can’t be carrying passengers if you want to put up semi-respectable scores during those 3 weeks.

With Lek pulling up sore from the weekend, Patch and Damo managed to defy significant odds and deliver a podcast WITHOUT mentioning Daniel Rich. Barron looks into the lower levels to try and find where our next rookie gem is going to come from in Around the Grounds. He has style! He has flair! He was there! That´s how he became our resident cheat sheet expert (ily Matty… and yes I’ve been watching a lot of daytime TV). And finally, in another week where our VC options are playing early, you’ve gotta nail your choice. Check out Damo’s write up here.   

The News

Hooooo boy, we are panicking!!

Chris Scott is enemy number 1 after DROPPING Charlie Constable after 27 touches and 10 marks last weekend. Come to the Tigers, Charlie. We’ll look after you. Willem Drew is on an extended bench with Joe Atley eyeing off his spot. Gonigliog is out injured and so is Dev Smith. There’s still no sign of Tim English at the Dogs or Bryce Gibbs at the Crows. If Jackson Hately doesn’t make the final cut tonight there isn’t any reliable rookie downgrade options. Arghhhhhh.

**BREAKING NEWS**

There’s some sunshine on the horizon though, community. The rookies are coming in thick and fast. Four confirmed debuts for tonight and Saturday, and a potential for a further 6 more on Sunday (and Joe Atley, who played a handful of games back in 2017 but is rookie priced)

For tonight, the Eagles are sliding in Willie Rioli at the expense of Jake Waterman. Oskar Baker (MID – 123.9k) will debut for the Dees in one of four changes. Jake Melksham and Michael Hibberd are out with injury. 

Dayne Beams is back for the Pies but Jamie Elliot is out injured. Jordan de Goey has been named despite concerns in the week that he would miss. The Saints are debuting Robbie Young (FWD – 117.3k) and Jonathan Marsh (DEF – 163.1k) will play his second game. Another debut at the Lions with young Mitch Hinge (123.9k) getting a shot. Chayce Jones replaces the omitted Riley Knight at Adelaide. No change at the Dogs for their clash against the top of the table Cats; who are (finally) debuting Darcy Fort (RUC – 117.3k). Joel Selwood also returns. Esava joins Constable as the ones making way. Bae and spiritual D3, Connor Blakely, returns for Freo! Give him a week or two to get up to speed but you definitely want this guy in your backline. Essendon have swung the axe, making 5 changes. Joe Daniher is amongst the ins, but Orazio FANTA-sia (fight me, BT) is out with injury. North have made some changes that won’t really affect you. James Rowbottom (MID – 117.3k) is in for Sydney and is on the bubble.

There are 37 ins and 13 confirmed outs on Sunday… if I went through them all this article would go for weeks. There are potential debuts for:

Peter Ladhams (RUC – 123.9k); Joel Garner (DEF – 123.9k (confirmed); Ben King (FWD – 184.8k); Jez McLennan (DEF – 117.3k); Riley Collier-Dawkins (MID – 121.8k); and Callum Coleman-Jones (RUC/FWD – 123.9k).

Port have recalled Zak Butters for their match up against Gold Coast; who regain Brayden Fiorini in a host of changes (how many players do they on their list…?). The injury curse at Richmond shows no signs of improving with Toby Nankervis and Jack Ross out for a while. Nick Vlastuin and Dan Rioli are among the ins. Hawthorn have added four names but I suspect they’ll go in unchanged. Some, ahem, ‘giant’ ins at the Giants with Mumford and Whitfield back in, also Brett Deledio for some reason (?????). Nic Newman returns for the Blues.

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

It’s a hard week for the Lock, not in sense that being unable to pick some great options but cash gen is hard to come by. If you’re sitting on a few 100k and can turn a Matt Parker into Tim Kelly it’s an absolute no brainer. With 3 scores above 120 in his past 4 games, his price will continue to climb as his 162 against North will sit in his rolling average for another two weeks. 

Scott has kept in the middle in a clear sign of upping his trade value at the end of the year (don’t @ me) so you should 100% be looking at a way to jump on. If you’re not that flush for cash and haven’t gone too crazy with trades yet, jettisoning the injured Isaac Heeney also has some appeal… 

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

A North v Sydney fixture looks boring as all hell on the surface (and below the surface, and below the surface surface), but it’s also being labelled as the Matt Rowell Cup. The rights to the Oakleigh Chargers gun that has been labelled “better than Sam Walsh”.

RUC

You can make a legitimate case for all three options tonight. Goldy (12.9k) looks way overpriced for a guy that hasn’t hit three figures yet in 2019, but there is some merit to his selection. After a stingy start, Sydney are allowing an average of 109DS to opposition number 1 rucks over the past 3 weeks. He gave Callum Sinclair a bath in round 17 last year on his way to 125DS. 

Callum Sinclair (11.6k) has returned two games of 90+ after a three-week slump in form. He enjoyed playing against North last year, scoring 105DS and 112DS. Against him is the fact that North have only conceded one Draftstars hundred to an opposition ruck this year in Ben McEvoy.

Sam Reid (FWD / 9.2k) carries far more risk, but North have had their struggles against key forwards this year. Hawkins kicked 4 last week and Mitch Brown kicked 3.3 a few weeks back.

DEF

Somewhat surprisingly considering their respective spots on the ladder, both sides are in the top 5 stingiest teams in giving up points to opposition medium backs (Sydney 14th. North 16th). Do what you will with this information, but tread lightly here folks. North, however, are in the top 4 in conceding points to opposition key defenders. I love watching Allir Allir (8.3k) play and he is a great salary saver on this slate. He also has form against North, scoring 88 and 73 in his two games against them. Callum Mills (MID / 10.5k) isn’t blowing the doors off the place, but he’s been a picture of consistency over the past 6 weeks, scoring between 70-96.

FWD

There’s some awesome value options tonight up forward that are really flirting with me. The first is Nick Blakey (5.6k), who is coming in fresh off a breakout game against Essendon. North average 83DS a game to the oppositions number 1 forward and a tick under 70DS top 2 forwards. The second is Robbie Fox (7.1k), who saw a major bump last week (82DS) without Harry Cunningham in the side. There’s only one other instance of Fox playing without Cunningham, back in 2017 he scored 69 when Cunningham missed in round 3. At the top end, Jack Ziebell (MID / 11.7k) is the only one that jumps out out me. I’ll explain why in the next section.

MID

The penny pinching so far has a point. To suggest both sides are sieves to opposition midfielders is an insult to sieves, who at least put up a modicum of resistance. Sydney have the second easiest midfield to score against, and North have the 5th. Of top 1 midfielders, North are 3rd easiest and Sydney 5th. Over the past 3 weeks, Sydney are conceding 134DS (!!!) to the number one opposition midfielder. My point should be pretty clear, both teams are hopeless so these 4 positions are where a bulk of your coin should go. 

Hope you’ve avoided the carnage this week, community. Good luck!

Go Blues!

TommyC99

Hey Kev! Very enjoyable write up once again!

So been toying with trades this week. Was thinking of going Walsh – Boak/Bont/Merrett. But theres been quite a bit of carnage this week. I'll still field 22 if Crouch and Drew join Ross and Constable as non playing player. So don't need to trade out non playing players to get 22. So here are my options. Would love your thoughts community!

1. Walsh – Boak/Bont/Merrett
2. Ross – Hately and Constable – Boak/Bont/Merrett
3. Ross – Hately and Parker/Pet – Walters
4. Hold trades

SC_Kev7

Cheers, Tommy! If Hately is named I like trade 3. No point keeping Ross and if you can hold onto Constable with decent cover he can easily cross 400k (that is, if Scott plays him…). If not Hately, trade 1 – Walsh to, in order, Boak/Merrett/Bont

hedski

Full blown panic mode for me now Kev with Crouch joining Gogs on the bench and Drew looking iffy.
All trade plans are out the window as of now.
Great job again, love ya work.

SC_Kev7

Tonight will be huge in what trades I make. hedski! I hope we get get Hately but Leon Cameron has been a prick so far so not holding my breath

Maverick_

Tonight’s final teams are huge Kev I Have crouch out drew most likely out and brayshaw stinking it..
I think brayshaw may actually survive another week!

TBone_9

I feel ya hedski. You gonna hold both boys on the pine?

hedski

Yeah TBone I'll hold them, might have to upgrade Walsh early to get another premo in the guts, was planning on doubling down if Hately named.

TBone_9

Atkins named out as well now mate, you have him to worry about as well? It looks like I’ll have to trade Cogs now, don’t think I can go into this week fielding Stack, Hayes and Stocker/Hately

hedski

Just seen that, yeah I have Atkins too.
Was going to double down Atkins/Parker, might have to hold Parker now, trade Atkins down to Stocker or Hately and Walsh up.
Aaaarrgghh, doin my head in.
Just got home from work so I'll have a play around in halfa when Sundays teams are finalised.

The Ranger

Panic? Panic was for weeks ago Hedski..
I've moved past that into something resembling a catatonic state now, just kinda numb and a bit trembly.

hedski

Ha ha, I feel for ya mate, I've dodged most of the carnage up until this week.
Team has just been scoring shit.

Tommo

What to do with Brayshaw? Stuck with both Constable and M. Crouch, so looking like I might have to hold.

SC_Kev7

Constable now back in… can’t keep up with this rubbish. Flick Brayshaw, his role is shot

Maverick_

Unfortunately I think I have too hold Angus after Ross Atkins and crouch all out. But If you can move him on I certainly would he’s not playing as an inside mid anymore

TommyC99

AFL.com says Crouch will miss this week. Carnage!!!

COREYSC

Which plan is better Community?
A) Drew to Boak if Drew doesn’t play if he does play Parker to Boak
Then Atkins to Hatley if Hatley plays or Stocker If he doesn’t
B) with M.Crouch out that means I have 4 premiums and 1 midpricer plus rookies on field do I upgrade Gibbons to J.Kelly and downgrade Atkins to Hatley/Stocker instead sparing Parker and Drew for another week??

SC_Kev7

B

Derek

B

TBone_9

I dunno if you guys are starting to panic yet, but I have Cogs, M. Crouch and Drew in my midfield all unlikely or not playing. If Drew is dropped I’ll be forced to sideways one of Cogs or Crouch to a premo. So much for all my trade planning from last week haha. I’m thinking Cogs to T.Kelly and hold him in the mids for a few weeks and Drew down to Stocker as I feel the best about his JS of all rooms on the bubble. Is it getting hot in here?? Anyone else feeling the heat?

TBone_9

Good god that’s some serious carnage in the mids there DJ! Wouldn’t be too surprised to see Constable in as a late in again for Atkins potentially. I like the plan though mate, if Hately not named you looking at Stocker or Rowbottom? It looks like Parker is gonna survive another week at my F6… may play Balta on field instead

Russty_

Hi John, Constable is playing, Atkins is out injured this week.

TBone_9

I see mate. The downgrade money is needed for me as well to try and get a premo defender in next week. Unfortunately with the Atkins news im down to slimmer pickings in the mids so Drew(if dropped) to Stocker/Rowbottom/Hately otherwise Atkins will have to make way for a rook instead of Parker (I’ll take a cruddy playing rookie over injured one any day)

Dash

360K.
Would love your two trade ideas this week?
Laird, Sicily, Whitfield, D Moore, Duursma, Collins, (Clark, Answerth)
Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Setterfield, Hayes, (Atkins, Scott, Gibbons)
Gawn, Grundy, (Bines)
Danger, Heeney, Boak, Drew, Balta, Parker (Burgess, Corbett)

dontblushbaby

Parker for Dunkley ?

Dash

Do you think Dunkley or T Kelly or even work out a way to get J Kelly in?

Ryan

Got a huge decision to make lads so need some help

Got three options

Trade in Tim Kelly for drew even though my rd 13 bye isn’t looking to good

Trade in Rory Sloane for drew though DDP even though Sloane can’t handle a tag that good, especially with Hutchings and de boar plus berry played a role on Sloane and did a good job

Trade in Josh Kelly for Walsh

Ryan

Berry played a role on him last year and kept him from scoring well*

Loyal

It is getting hot indeed! <img src=&quotcomment image" width="1"/>

Ken

Who would you take macrae or Kelly?

gainsy

macrae

TBone_9

T. Kelly or J. Kelly?? If T. Then him, if J. then Macrae

Blue

T

Trades

Crouch, Coniglio… Brayshaw you win again…

PocketDog

Would love some opinions on trades this week!
1. Drew & Gibbons >> Gaff & Rowbottom
Or
2. Drew & Constable >> Macrae & Hatley (if named)

I really want Macrae but Constable still has some serious cash to make if Chris Scott doesn’t keep snipering him to the two’s!
What do we think?

Steve

Constable is named on field, Atkins out

Connor

1. Ross & B. Scott >> T. Kelly & Hately (if named) + $104k
OR
2. Ross & Constable/Drew >> T. Kelly & Hately (if named) +$257k

Second part of option 2 obviously depends on who is named / omitted. Could also move Bailey Scott on instead of Ross and have around $100k less after option 2.
Feedback would be great!

Red

Any interest in Darling?
I'm thinking of getting him in as a POD for F6
2% of teams, dropped $135K, B.E. -1
Duursma to T. Kelly
M Parker to Darling

TommyC99

If he had the round 12 bye I’d be more Interested

BradleyTC99

So hoping hately gets named so I can go ross – hately. Which second trade is best?

1. Parker/Pet – Walters
2. Walsh – Merrett/Bont

Hazey

2

Russty_

Hately must've shagged the Coach's Daughter.

Maverick_

Teams have dropped and my side resembles a giant turd!
Was going to wait for Sunday teams to finalise but that’s not long till first bounce considering Angus plays tonight!
I have * next to my glaring issues i appreciate all feedback and suggestions 🙂 BANK: 367k TRADES: 21

DEF: hurn sicily Williams Smith Rozee duursma (clark answerth)

MID: Cripps Fyfe treloar Oliver MCrouch* Brayshaw*
Walsh Ross* ( Scott* Atkins* setterfield)

RUCK: Gawn RO’Brien (bines)

FWD: danger Dunkley heeney Cameron Moore drew* (MLewis Burgess)

Got plenty of fllexibilty with 3 Def/fwd swings and 2 mid/def swings.

Brayshaw all week has been a priority too move on but With Ross and Atkins both out Matt hopefully just a week and drew 50/50 brayshaw may take a back seat. Issue is if I hold this week he’s worth peanuts next week and I have to ride it out till he comes good it’s now or never for AB. I think TKelly is a must this week though.

What do the community suggest as trades.

TommyC99

If hately is named I’ll be going Ross – Hately i think Mav

Maverick_

I think your right tommy but don’t think hately will make the cut. He will relieve the pressure of Ross, Atkins and crouch out of my midfield otherwise stocker might get a call up but not real sure about his scoring power.

Russty_

Ross to Stocker, Drew to T.Kelly Mav, Lewis covers for Moore if out.
Or Move Rozee fwd and use Moore as a loop in the backline.

G.C.

Something I've been thinking about today is Hately. I've seen a lot of coaches here looking to bring him in if named, and it's making me think about the value of initial price rise vs JS in the byes. If Hately is indeed named, his rise this week will be fantastic. On the other hand, GWS have shown a willingness to drop him at any opportunity despite the numbers, which makes him an extremely risky proposition come bye time. More money now versus less security later, with no truly right answers.

For those bringing in Hately, how do feel about your cover during the byes?

TommyC99

If I bring Hately in, I’ll be looking at him as more of a short term investment. His JS is clearly shaky, but with his scoring potential and BE being so good,we only really need him to play another 3 games before his round 14 bye to be a worthy investment. Don’t think he’s too required during the round 12 bye but the round 13 bye we need all the warm bodies we can get

Doc_1

Not sure I should be holding both cogs and MCrouch now both out. Which one to upgrade to a McRae or J.Kelly

Fisherdann

Is anyone looking at Rory Lobb? Could be a good F6 option. Bye friendly. Upped his ave by 10 so far. Lowest score 71. With the 3 round ave of 95 and with 45 hitouts and a 128 over the weekend is he about to turn the corner?

Derek

as long as Sandilands and darcy stay away. don't think that will happen. he is going well now as the lone ruck, that will eventually finish

TommyC99

Hately not named. There goes my trade plans!

Maverick_

I was never confident he’d be named with lids on the extended bench too. And I don’t trust stocker for JS and scoring. I’m really stumped now!

TommyC99

I’m just assuming here by you’d think he’s highly rated seeing as they gave up pick 1 for him? Would like to see him named with simmo in the side tho

Maverick_

Drew up to TKelly, very happy John!

TommyC99

SEN have reported Darcy Moore is likely to be rested. It gets worse and worse

Maverick_

Is this some type of sick joke?
I’m cooked already I do not need the gods kicking me when I’m down! Haha It’ll be an interesting week of scores I feel

TommyC99

Yep absolutely sucks. With Drew and Moore both being out, and I already have bines with a 0 so need to create a mid/fwd swing to keep drew in the mids. Either trade Atkins and Ross to stocker and Walters or 1 trade drew – Walters, but I would like to keep drew for the byes (hoping he can get back in)

Holty01

Well that sux.😱

Dan

Oh no! I forgot to put Petruccelle on the field, so now will have a donut if Moore is rested.

Lazza

Heard it on the telly too.. Ch 7.

UpBeat

Butters ahead of Drew? Lol. The SC gods are crazy

Russty_

Drew had a chance to shine last week with Wines out and he only got 11 disposals.

G.C.

Now it's really panic time! Good think the game tonight is later on, more time to trade!

Would you rather:

A) Parker to Dunkley
B) Drew to Boak

Maverick_

I like drew to boak.
I started Dunkley but still do not trust mr magnets

Derek

having MCrouch out at least gives me a limited VC option this week, as my only non-player was going to be Bines but he plays first game.

I can't really risk VC on Grundy as Crows start 25 mins after the Collingwood game, so my VC options are Max, Oliver or a smokie with Hurn.

I went the big C on Oliver last week and was rewarded, but he will probably get a tag. Gawn away from melbourne, how does he fly. he got 156 at optus oval last year.

Guts says Oliver will break the tag and make 20 tackles.

Derek

Drew didn't make the cut. he can be my loop. happy days. Grundy VC

Swans2012

Especially drew, been very good, first one in if there’s an issue

Dash

360K.
Jus wanted to post again and see if I can get a couple of different options you think. Appreciate it
Laird, Sicily, Whitfield, D Moore, Duursma, Collins, (Clark, Answerth)
Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Setterfield, Hayes, (Atkins, Scott, Gibbons)
Gawn, Grundy, (Bines)
Danger, Heeney, Boak, Drew, Balta, Parker (Burgess, Corbett)

Derek

get Tim

Dash

Tim Kelly for Atkins you think.
Which other rookie would you chop this week?

Maverick_

I don’t trust stockers JS or scoring potential at all but have Atkins & Ross to cull. I wanted one of Joyce, rotham or hately named but not too be, such cruel game

Tyruddanaut

Oh his JS is fantastic obviously you don’t know the injury situation at Carlton. Jones, Plowman, Williamson, Simpson, Docherty all out

Tommy

Are you being sarcastic? Jones, plowman and Simpson all listed as 1 week away. Williamson listed as 2 weeks. Stocker could very well be dropped next week…

Maverick_

Yeah a lot of players on the comeback for Carlton.. stockers scoring is a slow burn not a real high ceiling so he needs to keep playing constantly to make cash?

Derek his scores aren’t great in the AFL so far but he looks to play very well in the 2s.

TommyC99

Surely Plowman and Simmo are a worry to Stocker's JS? Both only out short term. Any chance Cunningham could possibly make way first?

The Ranger

They paid a high price for Stockers Mav, surely they need to get some games into him?
Not that I'm picking him up but…

Tyruddanaut

One down one up for me (again)

Welcome Rowan Marshall in time to get belted by Grundy ! 😄

UpBeat

I'm thinking the same but Grundog will chew him up and spit him out. He only scored 50 vs Gawn. His BE is 57 so still tempted.

TommyC99

Are you bringing stocker in as your downgrade TY?

Brn

Dam!!

With crouch and Drew out, i have to play one of setterfield, balta, or corbett on field. No idea who to pick. Plz help

Russty_

Not sure but Balta could get 20 again with Soldo Rucking, one of the other two.

UpBeat

Setterfield. He went alright vs the Pies.

Brn

Righto thanks

The Ranger

Setterfield would be the safe option.
I'm going with The Balta.

Brn

I heard rowbottom is bad.

Derek

if Moore is out, changes my whole trading plan. Instead of Libba to Macrae, it will have to be Libba to boak. oh well.

Stupid Coach

hink I have managed to plug most of the holes in my team, however, still not sure which way to go with my trades. My obvious trades are Ross to Rowbottom/Stocker and Devon Smith to Tim Kelly as both are out injured long term. Leaves me with 20 trades and 30k in the bank. I would like to upgrade/downgrade Drew but that may need to wait until next week.

Appreciate any other ideas/suggestions Community.

Team is as follows:
B: Whitfield, Laird, Z Williams, Stewart, Duursma, Wilkie, Lockhart, Joyce (St K)
M: Cripps, Oliver, Merrett, Macrae, Coniglio, Constable, Walsh, Stack, Answerth, Scott, Ross
R: Gawn, Goldy, Sweet
F: Danger, Heeney, Rozee, D Smith, Settlefield, Petrucelle, Parker, Drew

Chompers

Big trouble this week. First cogs and Ross, now Atkins, drew and crouch. And what’s this i hear about Darcy Moore? FML
Looking at doughnuts this week

The Ranger

Whats the story with Moore Chompers?

TommyC99

SEN reported Moore could get rested. Quite ironic as i saw a small part from Pendles being interviewed this morning in which he said its disrespectful to rest players in round 9

SamuraiPizzaCat

Fyfe is life or J Kelly? Initially I've gone Fyfe but might be better to hold off to Round 13 after his bye?

Derek

have a look at GWS next 5 games… then have a look at their last 4 games (our SC finals), maybe have a look at Kellys % owned. his only worry is the week he missed a couple ago, if that comes back. otherwise he is as lock as they come. I'm starting to think Kelly instead of macrae/boak this week

KSinny

Drew to Stocker and $338k in the bank or Drew to Marshall or another forward under 480k and $30k?

Swans2012

Marshall looks good to me…..

Ryan

Sloane or Dunkley?

John

VC Gawn or Grundy?

Ja191

I’m going grundy. Shouldn’t need to worry about a c

iLoveNMFC

Moore OUT…

Ja191

Source?

iLoveNMFC

Fantasy Freako Twitter, usually reliable but hopefully wrong on this one

Tom

proof

James Sykes

i'm seeing this coming through on twitter but some of the major footy sites are yet to confirm……..herald sun, afl, fox footy…..does anyone have a confirmed source on this?

Brn

Freako aka champion data will be right

James Sykes

if freako calling it….its a reliable source to me….confirmed very unfortunately for me…….likely donut.
Although interesting Collingwood official site still havent called this….nor the AFL.

TommyC99

Mark Stevens mentioned it on twitter, and its been doing the rounds in the news. Hoping for some miracle and its not true but really can't see it being wrong

Tommy

I can’t remember a time when it was reported on 7news and it was wrong, must be more than just a rumour

Ja191

Moore than just a rumour*

Russty_

Is this confirmed yet?

Saritz

SEN mentioned it too. A lot smoke… best to assume its true and structure your side accordingly. Then if he is in it will be a bonus

Joel

I need a rookie in for Ross or im copping a donut i can swing duursma or setters into my midfieled.

A) ross too larkey

B) ross too joyce

C) ross to stocker

D) ross to j.atley

Phillip

What trades to do?

A )Ross and Moore-Oliver and Billings
B) Ross and Moore-Sloane and Dunkley
C) Ross and Drew-Sloane and Billings

TommyC99

Seen a lot of mixed reviews about Stocker. Ideally i'd like to be able to bring him in. Have a zero so its either bring in Stocker and Walters for Ross and Atkins or punt Drew/Moore – Walters

The Ranger

Going early on Connor Blakely would be dumb eh?

Derek

yep. watch his TOG and his center bounces. they may both be low and build over the next few week.

Mundy will spend less TOG and Walters will be more forward.

just wait and see how he goes first

The Ranger

You know what it's like when you have a crap start Derek…you start looking around for some crazy move that might get you ahead of the pack.
He's tempting me is Connor. I had him in at F3 in the pre-season and ended up with bloody Witherden.
Four cans of Bob Hawke beers and I'm coming up with all sorts of random trade options…

KeenButClueless

Same Ranger. Have less than 500k for an upgrade, so it’s out of Blakely, Rockliff and Henderson. Would still have too many midfield slots to fill, so Rocky it is. I know Rocky will do Rocky things and I should have taken Henderson, but the seasons three parts down the toilet already, so Rocky it is!

The Ranger

Feels good to take a punt sometimes eh Keen?
if Rocky averages 100 at M8 that's not at all bad.
I can't get on the Rocky train unfortunately….the burns…the burns…the burns….

KeenButClueless

You are right. Not sure when I will learn to stay away from these injury prone guys. Well, it’s a Hail Mary! So I might as well go full tilt and put the C on him. Against Gold Coast with no Touk Miller – here we go!

The Ranger

Onya Keen. I'm pulllng the Blakely trade.
Trade arse off. Bang! Bang!

Swans2012

I like it ranger, I reckon I’ll bring him in in the next couple, i like the kid

John

My two trades are, Brayshaw to Macrae and Atkins to Stocker. Any thoughts?

hedski

Congratulations to those coaches playing me this week.
I will be fielding Gibbons, Hayes, Stocker, Parker and Petracelle.
That's two wins for you this round Shaker 👍😪

Russty_

It ain't over until the weightally challenged lady sings Hed, many will be having their sides shaken up this week.

Shake_n_bake

Im in the same boat Hedski!! Probably worse!!

hedski

Just had a look Shake, we are in for an epically shit battle!

The Bont

Who do I field out of: Duursma, Lockhart Clark and Answerth

KSinny

I reckon Duursma against the sun's

Ja191

Duursma and lockhart for me

Russty_

Field the ones with the highest 3 round average.

Tommo

Cunnington or Sloane?

KSinny

Sloane

Mitch

Alright Community I need your help.
350k in the bank after a double downgrade last week. Thinking of upgrading one of…
A) Matthew Parker
B) Tom Atkins
C) WIllem Drew

..to one of

A) Jack Macrae
B) Josh Kelly
C) Rory Sloane

Which combination???

KSinny

Is probably go Drew to Macrae seeing as drew isn't playing and Macrae is $125k under his starting price.

Dash

Which two go first this week in order of Atkins, Gibbons, Drew, Parker, Libba, Walsh

Cheers

Dash

Might add D Moore into the mix as well

Russty_

Hickey's in now, with Vardy, against Gawn..I thought something like this might happen.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Bloody hell shakers you are a great font of knowledge.

Make the early calls and majority of times spot on

Nailed it again and again before changes eventuate.

Take note the guy knows this stuff ! <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="👏" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/1f44f.svg"&gt;

Tommy

Need to pick 1 unfortunately. Rowbottom or stocker? Who do we think has better JS?

Russty_

Depends on how well they play, Stocker was better last week than his first game.
Rowbottom's a fwd for Sydney so….

Fisherdann

Sloane or Dunkley?

Gainsy

Dunkley for me

iLoveNMFC

Drew to Dunkley and play Answerth?
OR
Moore to Hurn and play Petch?

Cheers community 👍🏼

Gainsy

1st

LeDoctor

I'm not so confident in Dunkley yet, wouldn't find it unlikely for him to be shoved back into the forward line and dish out 70s again. Hurn is a very solid option, more so than Dunkley, but not sure how Petch will go.

Gainsy

Everyone grabbing Stocker..?. seems unlikely to hold his place but nothing else rookie wise out there.
Also, looked at gunston but now im rethinking and worpel might be better…. thoughts

Tommo09

Constable or Walsh or Gibbons out for Stocker?

hedski

Gibbons Walsh Constable in that order.

Saritz

All of them have better job security than Stocker, so be careful! I think the smart play is to hold Walsh until his bye. We are seeing Constable as on the edge of the Cats team list each week now. But both have much better output than Gibbons. So I would go Gibbons (then Constable, then Walsh).

TelescopicCox

Brayshaw…hold or fold? Asking for a friend

Would need to move Atkins to stocker to get him to a Macrae type

Brett

So heaps of people have commented lately saying they have almost no rookies on field. I find it hard to believe. I will have 7 rookies on field this week, and are consistently scoring in top 1%.

So i ask how many rookies should we still have ?

KSinny

I have 6 with Crouch out this week

Sam_01

7 on field counting Moore and walshy also have crouch on the pine

Swans2012

Depends on structure Brett, I’m midprice heavy, with franklin and crouch out I’m fielding O’Brien, Duursma and setters. But also Moore libba brayshaw brouch smith and williams

hedski

I'll have seven with Crouch and Cogs out this week.

Russty_

I'm fielding 5, but 2 of them are Walsh and Hore.

The Ranger

5 plus Libba and Moore if he gets up

Saritz

People say a lot Brett. I have a 10in python too. I guess peoples interpretations of who is a rookie or not varies also. But my rule is DEF and FWD players must be averaging 90+, RUC and MID players must be averaging 100+. If they are not (excepting all the exceptions), then they are a player (rookie/mid pricer) that needs to yet be upgraded

Saritz

Oh… I have 10 that fit my criteria – ouch!!! how depressing

Swans2012

The question was “rookies” on field though saritz, not midpricers?

Swans2012

Seriously 5 rookies on field in the middle John! That is a rough week bud!

Swans2012

Yep that makes it rough, if it makes you feel better I bought franklin in as a pod five weeks ago for an 80 followed by a month of bench warming

redherringfc

I have 8 this week, but once I bring in Fyfe that drops to 7 with Crouch on the bench.

I’m usually around top 10% and very happy with how i’m tracking. I’m confident of making finals and going into them with close to the best team you can have on paper with around 4-6 trades.

I think a lot (but not all) of teams fielding few rookies are very heavy on mid priced players and will (hopefully) be easy beats come finals.

Lazza

I have 7 on field this week … 2 DEF, 2 MID and 3 FWD.. but only 1 premo on the bench.

cash_cows

Cogs + Parker -> Kelly + Stocker.

Sounding like Cogs might miss next week as well and been looking for an excuse to get rid of him.

Saritz

Need to hold your Premo's…. until you are fully upgraded (after the bye rounds). Im sure once Cogs gets his hand right his output improves. I guess you need to back your gut, but typically sideways trading is a poor strategy

Jey

I traded Cogs to Kelly. Kelly is a gun and will hopefully post some huge scores. Cogs has a Dusty 2018 feeling about him and unlike last year I'm calling time on my underperfoming mid. Dusty hurt my ranks too much last year and Cogs isn't helping you missing two weeks minimum.

Sometimes premiums have to go and I think Cogs is in that camp right now. So long as you think it wont hurt your team plan too much.

Gibbs

What’s everyone’s thoughts on Rowbottom? Didn’t have a great start to afl but dominated the neafl last 2 weeks had 28 and 27 think he was close to best on both games, is he an option over stocker?

TKC

Thinking of trading in Josh Kelly and Stoker but not sure which mids to trade out. Have:
Neale, Cripps, Fyfe, Macrae, Rockliff, B.Crouch, Walsh, Liberatore and bench Constable, Stack and Hayes.

Thinking maybe Libba and Walsh? Or Libba and Constable (job security is iffy, twice in a row back in as emergency)? Or Libba and Hayes as while he has more cash to generate, it will be much slower than Constable (if playing) and Walsh is better coverage over bye roungs? Thoughts?

SJ34

Heeney and worpel to J Kelly and Fyfe…. I think I’ve done well this week… god I hope I’ve done well…

Saritz

The SC gods have a way of making our plans look utterly idiotic. Good luck!

Swans2012

Gee that feels like 2 keepers to 2 keepers, obviously a points boost in the middle but who fills the shoes of the 2 forwards?

Saritz

Got a bad feeling about Gawns scoring output tonight. I hope you guys have a safer VC option. Can Oliver back-up his output from last week?

TommyC99

Hope im wrong but reckon Hutchings could go to Clarry. And Hickey late in means Gawn;'s coming up against 2 rucks. Im going Grundy VC i reckon

Saritz

Same Tommy. Grundy into Fyfe

Holty01

Good luck everyone for the round.

Fisherdann

Yes good luck everyone! Same to you Holty.

Swans2012

feel it might be needed this week!

Holty01

Yep. I’m going to have to pull something out of the hat to put something half decent onfield this week

Maverick_

thanks holty but i'll need more than luck this week haha i'm in real trouble even had to hold brayshaw in the end!
all the best to you mate keep on chipping away at that OA.

COREYSC

Hi Community, I’m Very lost what should I do I have 26 Trades Left and 233K in the Bank
Lloyd, Z.Williams, B.Smith, Hore, Duursma, Clark (Answerth, Burgess)

Cripps, Neale, Fyfe, Macrae, M.Crouch, B.Crouch, Walsh, Gibbons (Atkins, Hayes, Scott)

Grundy, Gawn (Bines)

T.Kelly, Dunkley, Dangerfield, Heeney, Drew, Parker (Setterfield, Corbett)

Trades

My chance to field a half-decent team has been screwed with Bines locked out. My god. I do not know what to do. So many outs.

Trades

Cogs to Rocky Drew to Greene?
Or
Atkins Drew out for 2 fwds $580k to spend no idea who to get.
Atkins and Moore with $630.
Just to field a team.

FearTheBeard

Rowbottom & Stocker in, Atkins & Ross out? Or try get a premium in this week?

Or do I bite the bullet take Cogs out and go JKelly or Dunkley and bank another 80k? and downgrade the other for Stocker?

Maverick_

what is rowbottoms JS like FTB?
I don't know alot about him other than his dominated the NEAFL.
if you think cogs only a week hold if longer i'd trade but if he gets that hand 100% he will kill it again i hope

One Touch Wonder

Took Derek’s SHARK MOVE advice and put the VC on Hurn.

Maverick_

is larkey worth the extra 50k spend over stocker?
i hate bringing in players after a rise but I feel he is far better than stocker for JS and probably output?

Lazza

Hey Mav, my theory is the the Blues will continue to play Stocker through the season .. they have too much invested in him to leave him in the magoos. He needs to be ready to fly next year .. Gibbons will go before Stocker .. I'm bringing him in this week ..

Maverick_

yeah i agree on that front lazza that theory makes the most sense but with plowman, simpson, jones and williamson to come back into the side stocker must make way you'd think?

Russty_

Probably worth it Mav, i was contemplating it myself a lot this week, named onfield as CHF, and looks a solid player who will only get better.
I would've done it if my other trade could've worked out.

Hayden

Atley from port?
Highly rated at the club and was firmly fixed on a debut before pre season injury. Worth a look maverick and russty_

Russty_

For sure Hayden but not before he's even played a game, on the bubble for sure if he's had 2 decent games in a row.
On the watchlist for sure.

Hayden

Yeah hasn’t played but I still rate him higher than stocker Big call but not rating stocker one bit to many names to return I think atley will hold in ports 22

Trades

I’ve got 8 non-players + Darling & Brayshaw.
Record low this week

Frank

Do you have umpires in your team?

Lazza

😂😂😂😂

Russty_

So you have 10 non players?…that sucks mate.

Trades

And Petrucelle

Swans2012

I’ve been trying not to, but brayshaw I am beginning to hate you

Yeahnah

Nothing feels better than trading him this week and seeing him still spud it up.

Russty_

I've got Lockhart backing up Moore if he's out so hmmm, I won't be liking him too much if he doesn't get his act together.

hedski

Same Swans, he needs to be in the guts not on the wing.

Swans2012

I really don’t get there thinking sometimes hed

Russty_

Shouldn't have doubted Gawny's ability to smash anyone…switched the VC off him at the last minute to Oliver. Doh.
Hopefully rednuts still does ok.

KeenButClueless

I also took it off him. Should listen to my own advice

Maverick_

I have it on him but only because i didn't see the late in of hickey or i'd also have changed it off him also.
Hopefully a huge 2nd half from the big beautifully bearded brute

hedski

I took it off when I seen the Hickey in 😪

COREYSC

I know how you feel mate I took the vc off Gawn to turn Grundy’s c to a vc to Captain Fyfe

Russty_

True that John, I would've scored much better last week if I didn't buy into the Danger out hype.

BradleyTC99

Hey fellas, would be great if you could leave a comment with which option looks the better option? Tough week this week and Stocker is most certainly not ideal, but if moore is out i cop a zero so need to make one of these trades.

1. Ross and Atkins – Walters and Stocker
2. Ross and Drew – Stocker and Boak
3. Moore – Walters

Russty_

I'd say option 2 Bradley, Boak or Marshall..not Moore, he's being rested.

hayden

remember the hype around J.Atley in the pre season loves a clearance and can seriously play.
anyone jumping on early over stocker or hately

Trades

Yeah I’m thinking of doing it. F it. Why not

Trades

Can someone post links about Moore out? Can’t find anything on this?

TommyC99

Mark Stevens announced it on twitter

Russty_

Kudos to the 9140 coaches who invested in their team's future bringing Hately in.
Kinda like the Stock Market, can make you dance in the street or jump out a 30 storey window.
Wondering why those people brought him in early…and then didn't have time to follow up on the result?
Surely if you're not sure, and won't have time to reverse, you'd just not do it in the first place?

DavidC

With Cogs to come back in I can't see Hately getting a game anytime soon. Deadwoood on the bench for the byes is not good.

BrownlowBoy

To be fair, all of the current rookies on the bubble could be dead wood by the byes.

Stocker etc don't look too great.

COREYSC

Hmm thinking maybe
Atkins to Atley (for Bye structure)
Gibbons to J.Kelly
Frees up my byes structure in the midfield round 14 for me is a shocker with both Crouch Brothers and Cripps, Walsh

Is Atley’s JS good enough? Avg 108 in SANFL and has played games at AFL Level before

Lazza

Bloody Hurn .. with a BE of 135, I thought… yep will get him a little cheaper next week… he hits is BE half way through the last … is a gun .. easily the best DEF this year ..

hedski

Wow, Ryan was next to Kennedy when he marked that outside 50 and sprinted in and flew for that hanger over Gawn nearly as quick as it was kicked in!

TommyC99

Starting Hurn is probably the only good thing i've done up to this point in supercoach! lol

The Ranger

Hats off to anyone who started Hurn,

Derek

Wasn’t on my radar until I saw some JLT numbers on kick in and people playing on from a kick in. He was locked in. That has added 20 pts to his average alone.

Stuck the C on him in my draft league, very happy

AuroraBorealis?!

Hurn finally has one mediocre game, i'm sitting here licking my lips waiting for the price fall, and now hes gonna pull out a 160. Had a choice at the start of the season to go Walsh + Billings or Hurn + 117k rookie. Not sure what was the better call but it's leaning towards Hurn at this point

redherringfc

Not having Walsh would have been a bad call though.

TommyC99

So im wanting to bring in Boak for Drew. Should i be concerned that i'm paying close to top dollar? I looked at his run of games and its quite nice. after the suns this week, he has hawks, saints and freo in the next month. Other option is Marshall but i'm not entirely sold on him and Walters but Blakely coming back probably hurts his mid minutes

Lazza

Boak has a massive 154 BE … never been near that number … wait a week….. or two…

TommyC99

Playing the suns so Could he get near that?

redherringfc

Wait til round 13, perfect time to get him. At that point pay whatever you need to.

Derek

I was planning to wait a week. But with talk of Moore being out I need to get him this week. Might be paying a bit over for him but I need to get him eventually so it might as well be now. Whitfield in 2 weeks

Jack

Need to trade Drew out and can afford a 525k replacement on any line, agonisingly short of Tim Kelly! I'm liking the look of either Dunkley or Sloane. I think Sloane will score more points for the rest of the year but am tentative getting him in as I already have Matt Crouch. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

redherringfc

Hawkins or Cameron will both be excellent players by average, but you’ll get some mediocre scores along the way.

Both should score very well this week. Cameron might even smash his 140 break even. Wouldn’t be a bad captain option in the final game of the week if you need a massive score to win your leagues.

Derek

Do you have Rocky?

Dan

I'm now trying to choose between:

Option 1
Atkins -> Stocker
Drew -> Dunkley

Option 2
Drew -> Larkey
Walsh -> J Kelly

Would love your thoughts.

Hawks

Option 1.

Dunkley is value still, and Walsh is still a reliable scorer.

James Sykes

i would go atkins to stocker and walsh into kelly so long as it doesnt give you donuts up forward

Hawks

My midfield is looking worst than shakey this week.

I have Drew, Hately, Cogs, Ross & Scott.

Was going to swing Drew forward for Heeney, but now hearing that Moore likely to miss, will have just the 6 scoring forwards.

Waiting to see is Moore plays, if not I will have to do the 2 trades just to have 22 scoring players.

Thinking double downgrade at this stage (but downgrade options are minimal), with the first trade being-

Ross to Blakey via Heeney swing – really liked what I saw from Blakey last week.

Looking for suggestions on 2nd trade.

Bob

Does anyone here know much about J Atley mid rookie from Port?
How many SANFL games has he played on the trot before playing this weekend?

Any info about him appreciated

Rick Grimes

I was keen on him preseason. Reckon he'll go real well.
