SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 9

Filed in Panic Room, Supercoach, Supercoach 2019 by on 17/05/2019 • views: 7561

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!

  2. TommyC99 says:

    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 says:

      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

  3. hedski says:

    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 says:

      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_ says:

        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 says:

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

      • hedski says:

        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 says:

          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 says:

            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 says:

      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 says:

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

  4. Tommo says:

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

    • SC_Kev7 says:

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

      • Maverick_ says:

        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

  5. TommyC99 says:

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

  6. COREYSC says:

    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??

  7. TBone_9 says:

    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?

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I am TBone, I have M.Crouch, Cogs, Constable, Drew and Ross, but I have a plan, now that I have stopped panicking. Ross will be upgraded, Drew is now in the fwd line, being covered by Petruccelle, I will move Duursma from defence to the mids, in place of Constable. Both M.Crouch and Cogs will stay on field for now, I have the E on Hayes to cover M.Crouch and I'm hoping Hately gets a game this weekend so I can trade him in to cover for Cogs.

      • TBone_9 says:

        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

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          Hi TBone, if Hately isn't named and Stocker is, I will have to go with Stocker, since I need to downgrade Atkins, to be able to upgrade Ross. I have Constable sitting on the bench at the moment, hoping he plays, so I can put him on the field in place of Cogs, depending on if Hately plays or not. I think you need to get T.Kelly in, I've had him since round 3 and have used him in the mids and fwd lines.

          • Russty_ says:

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

            • JohnDJ59 says:

              Thanks Russty, I just saw it on twitter, via Fantasy Freako, that sure makes things a bit easier.

          • TBone_9 says:

            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)

  8. Dash says:

    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 says:

      Parker for Dunkley ?

      • Dash says:

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

        • dontblushbaby says:

          Need to start moving on rookies ect who have maxed out as they have and will start losing cash otherwise and you will be caught with too many

  9. Ryan says:

    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

  10. Ken says:

    Who would you take macrae or Kelly?

  11. Trades says:

    Crouch, Coniglio… Brayshaw you win again…

  12. PocketDog says:

    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?

  13. Steve says:

    Constable is named on field, Atkins out

  14. Connor says:

    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!

  15. Red says:

    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

  16. BradleyTC99 says:

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

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

  17. Maverick_ says:

    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 says:

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

      • Maverick_ says:

        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_ says:

      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.

  18. G.C. says:

    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?

    • dontblushbaby says:

      Thinking same, if Coniglio comes back next week he could be first to go, but Risk V Reward ?

    • TommyC99 says:

      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

  19. Doc_1 says:

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

  20. Fisherdann says:

    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 says:

      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

  21. TommyC99 says:

    Hately not named. There goes my trade plans!

    • Maverick_ says:

      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 says:

        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

  22. JohnDJ59 says:

    Drew is now officially out.

  23. TommyC99 says:

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

    • Maverick_ says:

      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 says:

        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 says:

      Well that sux.😱

    • Dan says:

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

    • Lazza says:

      Heard it on the telly too.. Ch 7.

  24. G.C. says:

    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_ says:

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

  25. Derek says:

    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 says:

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

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        I don't trust emergencies for loopholes Derek, prefer the injured players. or ones just not playing.

        • Swans2012 says:

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

  26. Dash says:

    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)

  27. Maverick_ says:

    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 says:

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

      • Tommy says:

        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_ says:

          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 says:

        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 says:

      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…

  28. Tyruddanaut says:

    One down one up for me (again)

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

    • UpBeat says:

      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 says:

      Are you bringing stocker in as your downgrade TY?

  29. Brn says:

    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

  30. Brn says:

    I heard rowbottom is bad.

  31. Derek says:

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

  32. Johnno says:

    If you have Coniglio & crouch who would you trade or would you not trade them?

    • Russty_ says:

      Both will probably be back next week so I wouldn't trade, Cogs isn't certain for next week but wait and see I reckon.

    • KSinny says:

      Personally I'm trading Cogs but holding crouch

    • The Ranger says:

      Unless you're flush with trades you gotta hold your keepers unless they're out for a long term injury.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I'm holing both, I did enough sideways trades in the first four rounds.

  33. Stupid Coach says:

    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

  34. Chompers says:

    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

      Whats the story with Moore Chompers?

      • TommyC99 says:

        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

  35. SamuraiPizzaCat says:

    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 says:

      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

  36. KSinny says:

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

  37. Ryan says:

    Sloane or Dunkley?

  38. John says:

    VC Gawn or Grundy?

  39. iLoveNMFC says:

    Moore OUT…

    • Ja191 says:

      Source?

      • iLoveNMFC says:

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

    • Tom says:

      proof

    • James Sykes says:

      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 says:

        Freako aka champion data will be right

        • James Sykes says:

          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 says:

        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

    • Russty_ says:

      Is this confirmed yet?

    • Saritz says:

      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

  40. Joel says:

    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

  41. Phillip says:

    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

  42. TommyC99 says:

    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

  43. The Ranger says:

    Going early on Connor Blakely would be dumb eh?

    • Derek says:

      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 says:

        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 says:

          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 says:

            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 says:

              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 says:

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

                • Swans2012 says:

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

  44. John says:

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

  45. hedski says:

    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_ says:

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

    • Shake_n_bake says:

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

  46. The Bont says:

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

  47. Tommo says:

    Cunnington or Sloane?

  48. Mitch says:

    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 says:

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

  49. Dash says:

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

    Cheers

  50. Russty_ says:

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

  51. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    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;

  52. Tommy says:

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

    • Russty_ says:

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

  53. Fisherdann says:

    Sloane or Dunkley?

  54. iLoveNMFC says:

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

    Cheers community 👍🏼

    • Gainsy says:

      1st

    • LeDoctor says:

      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.

  55. Gainsy says:

    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

  56. Tommo09 says:

    Constable or Walsh or Gibbons out for Stocker?

    • hedski says:

      Gibbons Walsh Constable in that order.

    • Saritz says:

      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).

  57. TelescopicCox says:

    Brayshaw…hold or fold? Asking for a friend

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

  58. Brett says:

    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 says:

      I have 6 with Crouch out this week

    • Swans2012 says:

      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 says:

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

    • Russty_ says:

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

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Nine this weekend due to injuries, two in defence, five in the midfield, one in the ruck and one in the fwd line. I will be doing two upgrades next weekend. As for how many we should have at this stage, I would say no more than six.

      • Swans2012 says:

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

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          Sure is Swan, but also due to my different structure this year. I decided at the last minute to change it from the one I always use to something completely different. I decided due to the fwd rookies being not that good and the midfield ones looking the goods, I would only start with four premiums in the middle and since I was going to have two mid priced players on each of the def and fwd lines I didn't want to have any in the mids, so I started four rookies there, unlike most other teams who went deep in the middle. So when I lost two keepers from the mids today, it hurt.

          • Swans2012 says:

            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

    • The Ranger says:

      5 plus Libba and Moore if he gets up

    • Saritz says:

      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

    • redherringfc says:

      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 says:

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

  59. cash_cows says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

      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.

  60. Gibbs says:

    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?

  61. TKC says:

    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?

  62. SJ34 says:

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

    • Saritz says:

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

    • Swans2012 says:

      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?

  63. Saritz says:

    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 says:

      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

  64. Holty01 says:

    Good luck everyone for the round.

    • Fisherdann says:

      Yes good luck everyone! Same to you Holty.

    • Swans2012 says:

      feel it might be needed this week!

      • Holty01 says:

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

        • Maverick_ says:

          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.

  65. COREYSC says:

    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)

  66. Trades says:

    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.

  67. Trades says:

    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.

  68. FearTheBeard says:

    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_ says:

      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

  69. One Touch Wonder says:

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

  70. Maverick_ says:

    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 says:

      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_ says:

      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_ says:

      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 says:

        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_ says:

          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 says:

            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

  71. Trades says:

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

  72. Swans2012 says:

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

    • Yeahnah says:

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

    • Russty_ says:

      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 says:

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

  73. Russty_ says:

    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 says:

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

      • Maverick_ says:

        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

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I had the VC on Gawny all week, then I saw West Coast were playing the two rucks, thought about that and took it off Max 3min before the start. Sometimes it pays not to overthink things.

      • Russty_ says:

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

    • COREYSC says:

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

  74. BradleyTC99 says:

    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_ says:

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

  75. hayden says:

    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

  76. Trades says:

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

  77. Russty_ says:

    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?

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      All I can think of Russty is they wanted to upgrade a player, but needed to downgrade one as well and didn't think much of the ones that were playing.

    • DavidC says:

      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 says:

        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.

  78. COREYSC says:

    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

  79. Lazza says:

    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 ..

  80. hedski says:

    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!

  81. TommyC99 says:

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

    • The Ranger says:

      Hats off to anyone who started Hurn,

      • Derek says:

        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

  82. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    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 says:

      Not having Walsh would have been a bad call though.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I started with Walsh and Billings, AB, and am happy I did, I traded in Hurn in round 7 and that's worked out alright.

  83. TommyC99 says:

    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 says:

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

    • redherringfc says:

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

    • Derek says:

      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

  84. Jack says:

    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!

    • Johnno says:

      Dunkley looks good now mate. If I didn’t have other issues I would’ve jumped on him this week.

    • redherringfc says:

      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 says:

      Do you have Rocky?

  85. Rocksta_ says:

    In my haste to trade this evening pre-match due to having a heap of players out, I stuffed up my Captain’s loophole. Gawn was my only real VC option, but I have the VC on Grundy. Not only have I missed out on the 144 double up, I will now have to just go the straight C on Grundy. He should get it done but just goes to show you can’t do anything in a hurry or last minute with this caper.

    • Johnno says:

      You can’t vc Grundy and c on danger?

      • Rocksta_ says:

        No bud, as my only remaining non playing players are Burgess and M Crouch. The Adelaide game starts 25 mins after the Collingwood Game. Also, in order to utilize Burgess, I’d have to loop him with Williams if Grundy plays well, and take Lockharts 52. Thus, my only real VC Option was Gawn. I’ll be surprised if Grundy doesn’t destroy Marshall tmr, but you never really know and very sloppy on my part all the same.

        • DavidC says:

          Surprisingly STK haven't been giving up a lot of points to rucks. Still think Grundy goes big though.

  86. Johnno says:

    Need to field either setterfield or Corbett (sigh). What do people think?

  87. Dan says:

    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 says:

      Option 1.

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

    • James Sykes says:

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

  88. Hawks says:

    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.

  89. Bob says:

    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 says:

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

      • Bob says:

        What do you think of his job security?

        • Maverick_ says:

          Been killing it in the sanfl bob played 6 games
          I am considering it he was a walk up starter before a pre season injury struck. But will wines coming back hurt atley? Will drew be back next week? I hope a port supporter can help u out there on his JS

          • Bob says:

            Thanks guys. JS is definitely a concern but I need to go 1 up / down, and with so few solid downgrade options this week he might take the gamble on him.
            There is Stocker and Rowbottom but I don't think there much diff between the 3 of them.

  90. Dash says:

    Who is order of priority to trade this week?
    Atkins, Parker, Gibbons, Libba, Walsh, D Moore, Drew
    Libba has lost about 70K already since he peaked.
    Atkins has BE 53 but has a 12 rolling through and not playing

    I have about 300K and looking at perhaps the players you would have on your bench normally. Looks like Gibbons, Atkins or Parker.

    Looking forward to seeing what you think

  91. DavidC says:

    Hurn only in 14% of teams, that surprises me a bit. Almost a pod.

  92. Rocksta_ says:

    I know his name is Hately, but for Fks Sake Giants, show the boy some Love!!!!!!

  93. Stupid Coach says:

    Any idea how long Kieran Jack is out for Sydney. Trying to decide whether to bring in Rowbottom or Stocker in for Ross as bench coverage. Both have scored the same after two games but it seems that Stocker has the better JS having played the last two games.

    Thoughts?

  94. RealDealNeale says:

    If De Goey is out I’ll cop a donut. Can afford any forward for Drew up $490k, but none of them excite me.

    Other option is to bring in a defender for sub $490k and swing Moore back, so long as he’s not a late out. Possibly Hoult, Houston or Crisp?

  95. TelescopicCox says:

    I’ll need to move out Cogs and a rookie to avoid a donut (have 24 trades left so a sideways trade doesn’t bother me)

    A – Cogs & Drew to J.Kelly & Stocker
    B – Cogs & Drew to Neale & Stocker
    C – Cogs & Moore to Rocky & Dunkley
    D – Cogs & Moore to J.Kelly & Marshall

    C & D only if Moore is a late out

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      I like option A. However, instead of going Stocker, I might gamble on Joe Atley. Great wraps on the kid and debuting against Gold Coast.

      • TommyC99 says:

        I havent really heard a lot about Atley. But a few people around here have mentioned that hes quite highly rated. Stocker is the safer choice of course but would he be first to go when Simmo is back? At the same time blues have to rate him for what they gave up

    • James Sykes says:

      A

  96. BradleyTC99 says:

    Thoughts on Walters? Looking at either trading Atkins and getting Walters or trading Drew and getting in Boak. Which ones is the better option?

  97. TommyC99 says:

    For those who are downgrading this week, are we just going safe and bringing in Stocker, or are we punting on Joe Atley?

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      Stocker even though I don't like it at all.

      • Maverick_ says:

        will drew and wines drop atley back into the 2s before a price rise though tommy? Big wraps on him in pre season though and been very good in the sanfl

    • Steve says:

      Going Atkins – Atley and Drew – Dunkley taking a risk but looked at Atley at the start of the season

    • hedski says:

      Stocker.
      Will look at getting Atley when/if he's on the bubble.

    • Derek says:

      I like the look of Rowbottom, but he has a round 13 bye and I need all the warm bodies that week I can get.

      Although if I trade Atkins to Rowbottom I can go Moore to Boak. Trading in Stocker I’m $3k short, otherwise I trade out Libba.

  98. johnno2908 says:

    I dont know why, but I cannot stop looking at Aaron Naughton in defense at $336k…. Has Geelong this week which is a concern. But the -31 BE, could make $100k+ by his bye if(and thats a big IF) his form continues. The 97 last week in average conditions at Ballarat last week has really got me thinking.

    • Derek says:

      He is a fair way off being in top 6 defenders, is this just for cash? A trade not worth $100k

  99. Banga says:

    Drew – Boak

    Or

    Atkins – Walters

    • Derek says:

      Boak will be top 6 forward

      Walters is going good but could be effected by Blakely being back. He will get less midfield time.

    • James Sykes says:

      100% option 1 please

  100. Bubes says:

    Hey guys! Need a little bit of help for my team… Currently have 21 trades and looking at trading Atkins to T. Kelly in order to ensure I have 8 playing mids this week (M.Crouch and Coniglio on the bench).

    For my second trade, should I upgrade Wash to Sloane/Dunkley? Or sideways Coniglio to J.Kelly/Zerrett?

    Cheers!

    • Derek says:

      Try and hold Cogs. The rest will do him good.

      I know it seems a long way off, but I look at GWS’s last 4 games of the season (SC finals) and want to have as many GWS players as possible.

      3 home games in a row against swans, hawks and dogs followed by Suns in the last week.

      If you trade him out now you won’t get him back

      If you ca turn Walsh into a Sloane/Dunkley that will give you more points, Walsh has done his job and the rookies usually start to get tired about now.

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        I think you are right Derek. I have both Cogs and M Crouch sitting on the bench this week. Both should be back next week. I think Walsh will turn into J Kelly this week and then perhaps Drew down to Atley. Happy to take a risk on Atley. Not sold Stocker and Rowbottom. Sorry about Laird in Draft mate. Had to hang onto him despite Yeo being a gun midfielder. Defenders that score weekly tonnes are as rare as hens teeth. Cheers mate

        • Derek says:

          I might be ok this week without Laird.

          The C on Hurn 161, and Yeo 136 were my only two players last night.

          I’ll e back later with another offer for him

  101. Ja191 says:

    Best rookie for any line? Forced to trade because moore is out

  102. KSinny says:

    Moore late out with "soreness"

  103. Trades says:

    Anyone else having trouble logging into supercoach?

    • NoLanguage96 says:

      Yep just won't load

    • Jay says:

      Yes,
      Looks like the site has crashed, and I havent made my changes yet

    • hedski says:

      Yep, told me the app needed updated so I deleted it and re-downloaded it now just get constant load screen, can't get in.

      • hedski says:

        Can't get in thru the browser either, better be fixed before the pies/Saints kick off 😠🤬

      • Derek says:

        If I can get on, was going to go Moore to Boak, libba survives another week.

    • Johnathon says:

      They'd want to get it resolved before the Pies/Saints game otherwise there'd be an uproar

    • Saritz says:

      YES! I need to account for Moore being out

      • kevdupe says:

        If we can get in, what you guys thinking to do with Moore? Was thinking a straight swap to Gunston. I don't like the rookies this week.

  104. BrownlowBoy says:

    What rookie did we all end up bringing in?

    • Jay says:

      None.
      The site is broken

    • Lazza says:

      None yet, but I gave to bring in one to plug a donut… probably Stocket

    • Maverick_ says:

      considering atley. crazy i know but i don't like stockers JS too many players returning in 1-2 weeks.
      otherwise i will spend the $$ on larkey rock solid JS north are a far better side with him in there

  105. Ja191 says:

    Sites back up

  106. Tommy says:

    Who to field for Moore being out – Parker or Corbett?

  107. Bill says:

    Should I trade Moore to Dunkley or Drew to Billlings?

  108. TelescopicCox says:

    Last minute panic!

    Cogs and Moore to Dunkley and Rocky
    Cogs and Drew to J.Kelly and Stocker

  109. Trades says:

    Drew to Dunkley, Danger or Boak?

  110. Trades says:

    Gunston or Marshall?

    • Trades says:

      Atkins to Atley
      Drew to one of these guys
      Or
      Coniglio and Drew for Atley and Dunkley

  111. Holty01 says:

    That was silly. Had the flu jab yesterday so spent a lot of the morning in bed. Just went to swap my vc from Grundy to Neale but 1min to late. Let’s hope it doesn’t bite me on the bum

    • Nathan says:

      I've got mine on Grundy too so hopefully we're not disappointed mate!

    • Maverick_ says:

      you'd expect grundy to monster st kilda holty.
      hope it works out for ya mate!
      I can't split larkey, stocker, atley or rowbottom need one to come in to avoid a donut, any suggestions?

      • Finnius says:

        I like Atley Mav. Larkey too expensive, others have poor JS and scoring potential.

        • Maverick_ says:

          I like atley also finn but just looked at ports injury list alot of good players to return soon…
          he was almost a certainty R1 before struck down by injury though which is a positive and been killing the SANFL

      • redherringfc says:

        Since he’s on field, roll the dice on Atley.

      • Holty01 says:

        I think Larkey and Stocker are the safest bets. They should keep getting games in poor teams. I do like Atley but can afford to wait on him. Can’t honestly say much about Rowbottom as haven’t seen him play

    • Russty_ says:

      Hi Holty, I was thinking about putting the C on Neale too but checking his average and highest score against the Crows, they're both the lowest out of all the teams.

      • Holty01 says:

        New club, no tag, think Brisbane will do well today. Grundys strengths are what he does around the ground. Just have a feeling Marshall might nullify his influence as Marshall should match him with his running ability

  112. Nathan says:

    I'm 5k short on going Drew straight to Kelly so I think I'm just going to hold off on all trades this week, even though I've got Atkins, Parker, Drew, Duursma and Gibbons all ready to go and with MCrouch out. There just isn't anyone else who i am interested in downgrading to so I'll wait for the chaos of this week to blow over and I'll assess the aftermath. I'll be keeping an eye on Blakely and hoping Kelly has another shocker soon enough.

  113. Hoot says:

    M. Hinge anyone?

  114. Tiger says:

    Can anyone tell me how much cash walsh ( Carlton) would drop if he scored a 70 this week. Cheers

  115. JugHead says:

    I don't like any of the rookies on offer this week. Gritting my teeth and gunna wait until more bubble boys arrive.

    Thinking of trading out Libba (who wont be a top 10 mid), swinging Duursma to mids and bringing in Tom Stewart (who I think could be a top 10 def)
    Will cost me about 70k and avoid Libba's projected price drop.
    Does anyone have an opinion on this?

  116. JohnDJ59 says:

    Go Billings you bloody beauty.

    • Russty_ says:

      Nice John, hope he tons up for you, killing it on 18 possies at half time.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Your Saints need to start kicking some goals Russty, or you will end up like the Dees last night.

        • Russty_ says:

          Same old story mate, most of our players couldn't hit the side of a Barn!

    • Rocksta_ says:

      Well done JD. The bastard burnt me that bad last year I put him on the ‘never again’ list. It’s looking like I need to get over that! I’m at the ground watching it unfold.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        I had him last year as well Rocksta, but I traded him out before he lost too much cash. I liked that they were finally playing him where they should be in the pre season games, so gave him another go.

  117. Maverick_ says:

    treloar 20 touches for 54 pts at HT.
    I'm assuming he's butchering it again, hmm.

  118. Russty_ says:

    Answerth's looking a bit Fool's Goldy now after 2 good scores in his first two games, 49 last week and now looking like a huge dud.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I have him on the bench, where he will stay till someone else comes along.

      • Maverick_ says:

        thankfully i looped him with the E.
        I'll be throwing clark onfield now.

        • Russty_ says:

          Yeah bench here too Mav, means I'm starting Stocker now…gulp!

          • Maverick_ says:

            i hope stocker can pump out a solid score for ya!
            He may be my M8 yet :/ I am still to replace ross I don't like atley, stocker or rowbottom for JS and larkey is pricey.
            I have serious commitment issues this week haha

            • Russty_ says:

              I had to do something early cause I wanted to get Marshall in this week, I reckon Larkey is best of that bunch, pricey but good JS, named as CHF.

    • DavidC says:

      Poor Yesterday, might get dropped.

    • Daz says:

      Lot of people would of used him for coverage of Moore I imagine.

  119. Holty01 says:

    oh no.🙄

  120. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Could Kent and Membrey please stop looking so much like Parker? I keep getting excited everytime they get the ball

    • Derek says:

      With all the excitement today I missed the lockout. Still have Moore in field, meaning I have to take Parkers score no matter what.

      I’m just not watching. It’s too painful.

      • Russty_ says:

        I took Parker over Balta Derek, the spud's been on 26 for about an hour now.

    • redherringfc says:

      If the player looks competent it’s NOT Parker.

  121. Rocksta_ says:

    First time I’ve seen Marshall play live. He’s definitely a ‘Get On’. The boy ‘can’ play.

  122. every damn time says:

    what a suprise geelong with a late change

  123. Rocksta_ says:

    You heard it first right here…….Young, is a Gun!

  124. Moggy says:

    Hi all, last minute URGENT advice required. I want to paint the fence and bring in Fyfe and Stocker. My two choices are to trade out:

    1. Gibbons and libba or;
    2. Atkins and Walsh

    Urgent opinions requested.

  125. With Groundy going home next year would Carjton's no.1 pick and ROB seal the deal It would for me

    • Shake_n_bake says:

      Haha won’t go!

      • Knew you would comment Shake Reading between the lines after his interview i think he will .He would be sorely missed

        • Beezneez says:

          Said in sa paper he'd like to go home if thinking about raising a family. Personally, Id like to see the Crows get him but not st the expense of a possible no.1 draft pick – especially in next year's draft. He'll be a free sgent the year after so that would be a better outcome.

  126. redherringfc says:

    I’ve talked him up for 3 weeks now. It’s time to put my money where my mouth is.

    Hawkins as Captain.

    I’m backing in a 180, if not 200.

  127. Brett says:

    Screwed up my loophole. Captain fyfe or j kelly?

  128. BrownlowBoy says:

    I was fine with Parker on my bench, but thanks to Darcy Moore Parker's score now counts.

    He's dropped the biggest spud score this week and as soon as lockout is over I don't know who he's being traded for but he is getting the chop from my team.

  129. Dash says:

    Drew to Dunkley. Pull the trigger?

  130. Holty01 says:

    Grundy with a 86 point 2nd half. Thank you.
    Although I am no longer watching Brisbane as I’m cringing each time Neale gets it.

  131. GreendaleFC says:

    Constable a late in again. Couldn't quite get him on field before the game started. Means Hayes is on field for me.

    • Maverick_ says:

      Constable was confirmed yesterday to play Atkins was withdrawn Friday arvo from geelongs squad

      • GreendaleFC says:

        Damn just wasn't paying attention then. I guess the fact that he doesn't get listed as an in threw me off.

    • Russty_ says:

      Hardly late , Abbott was a late in for Stanley, need to check your team more often mate lol

  132. Derek says:

    My first serious stuff up for the year, and I blame ScoMo.

    Had to go and vote, headed off before the cats dogs game.

    Thought I’d do my two trades on the way.

    Libba and Atkins out

    Stocker and Boak (via Drew) in.

    Only problem, super weak phone signal, just got Atkins trade done, but didn’t get Libba to Boak.

    Don’t have enough cash to go Drew to Boak and there isn’t anyone else in forwards i like.

    Have $502k

    • Derek says:

      Not enjoying watching Libba fall over a lot

    • Russty_ says:

      Damn Derek!…can't believe you put voting in the stupid Election before Supercoach mate, Libba on 35 now so hopefully the spud can eek out another 35 or 40 points for you.
      Could even ton up depending on where his scatterbrained Coach leaves him in the second half.
      Can't believe Bont's just playing forward, and I could've taken Macrae over him..cest la vie.

      • Derek says:

        My fault. I know the community centre is in a low area and gets bad phone strength.

        I was just yelling at my phone

        I’f I trade out Drew I don’t have a VC loophole to take Grundy score. Option is to trade Durrsna out and swing Drew into guts, but if I leave him on field for the VC donut, I have to take Hayns score. Currently on 28 at 3/4 time. Interesting decisions to make

  133. NoLanguage96 says:

    Community!

    Sorry if it's a dumb question but if I have two non playing players on field in the same forward line with the emergency on both bench players and the C on one of the non playing forwards, do I get both emergency scores and the double VC score???

  134. Maverick_ says:

    Drew -> kelly this weekend
    Gee I hope there is a Big second half to come.

  135. Lazza says:

    Swans Kennedy a late out .. carnage continues

  136. Sam_01 says:

    Parker Answerth Lockhart Wilkie cheers spuds
    The drew/Moore/crouch outs killed me this week

  137. No idea says:

    Meanwhile Kelly on 30 and Clark on 7 midway through the 3rd!! WTF Are they being tagged / injured respectively??

  138. Will says:

    Drew played in the SANFL today. Any chance of him being a late in tomorrow?

  139. Ja191 says:

    Who’s this darcy fort guy and what’s he done with Darcy fort

  140. Russty_ says:

    Oh man that was a huuuuge grab by Tom Stewart then!…what a classic

    • Lazza says:

      Yep great hanger, but riding Libba who was bent over .. maybe 4 ft of the ground 😁

      • Russty_ says:

        Yeah like getting a ride on an Oompa Loompa, he did get up pretty high though, he loved it too! 🙂

        • Lazza says:

          Just kidding Russty, it will make a fantastic photo .. loved his team mate clapping him .. Stewart’s smile lasted the whole quarter …

  141. cash_cows says:

    Balta or Corbett on field?

  142. Connor says:

    Well guess who forgot he had to loophole Grundy before tonight's game and left the C on Fyfe

    • Russty_ says:

      That's something you should do straight after the game Connor, I've got the C on Fyfey boy too so good luck to both of us.

  143. COREYSC says:

    This week could be a huge scoring week for those who got their on field rookies right unlikely me but I’m relatively happy with my rookies so far 2,200 with M.Crouch on the pine would be a good result from here but I believe it will be below par

  144. TBone_9 says:

    Already got three disgusting rookie scores on field. Decided to roll the dice on Answerth instead of taking Lockhart’s 53. With Drew out I had to bring in Stocker, decided to field Hayes instead of him. And Parker, I just can’t wait to trade him out as soon as the weekend is over. These are some of the most unpredictable rookies I’ve seen

  145. Russty_ says:

    Heeney must be playing in the midfield where he belongs, thanks to JPK being out, and is scoring bigtime…. surely the dumbass coach could figure out a way to have them both in there permanently?
    Put some other plebs in the fwd line but not Heeney Horse, you fkn Horse!

  146. Rick Grimes says:

    Heeney sellers be hurting.

    • Swans2012 says:

      True, but with a 150 odd break even, @ 450k or so, he does make a tasty thought for a (re)trade in lol.

  147. Holty01 says:

    How many of us managed to field a full team?

    • Russty_ says:

      I did Holty, but I don't think it helps me all that much this week.

      • Holty01 says:

        It’s tough. Have Stocker @ m8 and no one else on the bench. Hopefully all get up to play tomorrow
        I have Clark, Setterfield also. 😩

    • Lazza says:

      Me too, but I will have to take either Parker’s 30 or Answerth’s 26…

    • Pranav says:

      Fielded a full team but copped Parker and Clark spud scores on field. Could of been worse with Hayes and answerth on the bench

    • Daz says:

      Waited on the late mail and traded Moore on the golf course on my phone haha, was stressful cause I had to update my app too. Avoided fielding answeth or clark or similar, but have setterfield (feel like he will lift against his old team), stack, baker and durssma today.

    • Beezneez says:

      I have M Crouch, Coniglio, Ross, Drew and D Moore out. Happy days.

    • Maverick_ says:

      I had a 22 bodies Holty only 19-20 of those had a pulse though. Tough week for most though so might be able to get a couple wins in leagues

  148. Lazza says:

    I know we aren’t supposed to discuss politics here… but two major positives out of this election are the end of Tony Abbott and Bill Shorten … c’est la vie..

  149. COREYSC says:

    Great effort from Heeney tonight super gutsy! Had his arm stomped on and picked up a head knock and stillness pumped out 110 with an injury affected match and less gametime very impressive

  150. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Who needs Hurn when you have Mundy! Both old farts tearing the place up.

    • Derek says:

      Sigh. I started with both. But got rid of Mundy round 3. Can’t win em all.

      I didn’t see game, did Blakely play in the guts?

    • Beezneez says:

      Trying to find ways to get them both in. 5 outs this week has meant stalling original plans. Forced to field Parker and Corbett and an early upgrade of Coniglio in oder to field a complete tea (although could have fielded Hayes (31)). Could have been 6 if Constable hadn't been a late in. Worst no. of outs ever – almost like a bye round for me.

  151. Notorious says:

    Anyone have any news on Coniglio. Is he just being rested?

    • Saritz says:

      It’s his finger… dislocation. He has played with it for the last 2 weeks. So I’m hoping he is back next week, but the talk is he misses another week unfortunately

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      Leon Cameron mentioned 2-6 weeks.

  152. Derek says:

    Had the VC on Grundy, but to take his score would mean I had to take Hayns score.

    Decided to put C on Merrett, happy with his score but hated he spent last 7 mins on bench

    Need Durrsma to score 54 to level it

  153. No idea says:

    God I'm stupid. Put Fyfe on the bench to loophole Neale's points though forget to put the "E" on Fyfe, so I loose his points and play a man short .

    • Holty01 says:

      Damn mate that sux. I know the feeling as I’ve done that a few times before

    • Russty_ says:

      Dude, you're obviously not obsessed enough with Supercoach…haha, otherwise you'd be checking your team and the Fanfooty scores every 5 minutes.
      You realise you can't play this game, and have a life right?…;)

  154. Russty_ says:

    I'm going to play Golf tomorrow, so well done to all the teams who will beat me this week, which will probably be almost all of them.
    Congratulations in advance, because my team sucks.
    Stupid starting choices and the wrong rookies on field early on, can really derail a season.
    I'll keep battling, but it'll be hard not to run out of trades this year.

    • Lazza says:

      I wish you’d done that when playing me ..

    • Beezneez says:

      Lucky you're not wanting to play golf in Adelaide Russty. Its p…ssing down – that would really stuff your weekend.

      • Maverick_ says:

        Mine and your team started very similar R1 russty and I’m not doing that well myself! I think I went a little too far toward midprice madness and it’s biting me in the a$$. I’m ranked 15k so not a disgrace but the weeks ahead look grim. Off to the bank tomorrow to apply for an interest free loan to get from rob too grundy ASAP. We just have to keep fighting mate I’m just thinking about the community leagues I don’t want to let everyone down.

  155. Holty01 says:

    Looking around some of my leagues, I think there will be some big scores this week. The ones who have avoided all the carnage of outs will be 2400+ with some plenty more.
    I’ve had to field Clark, Setterfield and Stocker with my outs of Crouch, Moore, Drew, Atkins. I thought I was hard done by this week but it seems this has been nothing compared to what others have endured this week. To those people I feel for you.
    Everyone keep your heads up and let’s hope Sunday brings us some luck.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Hi Holty. It is a really tough round for many coaches this round. I am juggling with Cogs and M Crouch on the bench. I am sticking fat and NOT trading them out. It will give me some pain scoring wise, but it is worth it. Both Cogs and M Crouch will be back next week. Then Danger takes one of their seats. Its that kind of season. You simply cannot trade out premos if they miss for the one week. I should still get a decent score. Only had Clark on the field for his 33. All the other spuds like Parker, Answerth, etc were all on the bench. One massive trade today. Its time to farewell Willem Drew for……..Watch this space!! Good luck today mate.

      • Derek says:

        TH…. is it Toby?

        • TOPHAWK1 says:

          Nah Derek. Not touching that prick with a 20 foot barge pole.

          • No idea says:

            Wish I hadn't. Brought him in on his return against the normal "no dickhead" rule and have regretted it every moment since

          • Derek says:

            I need to trade out Drew today as well. Stuffed up yesterday and was going to trade Libba to Boak, missed the cut off.

            Can’t go from Drew to Boak.

            Been thinking about this move for while and I think I’ll pull the trigger. We might even be thinking the same trade.

    • Derek says:

      There are going to be some wild fluctuations

      I’m against someone who is projected to get 2547. But most others are looking at 2100ish

      I might limp past 2250

    • Meph says:

      I'm on for 2400 while holding Crouch. Just one of those crazy weeks I have the right amount of cover and all my premos are scoring well.

    • Saritz says:

      I have wild fluctuations is projected scores in my leagues too. It will be interesting to see what par is. I have Moore, Cogs, and Crouch on the bench but should still crack 2300+. So teams without these names could go big

  156. Lekdog says:

    Blues will win today folks, I feel it in me waters

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Be a big scalp if the bluebaggers can pull it off Lek! GWS will be snarling after getting pumped by the Hawks last week.

    • redherringfc says:

      That’ll be the trifecta:

      1. Morrison in the election
      2. Netherlands in Eurovision (who saw that coming? so my wife says)
      3. Carlton over GWS.

    • Saritz says:

      So I should be putting my rent money on it? They are at $6 for the win. I already know what Im going to buy with my winnings. Thanks Lek!!!

  157. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Good morning community!

    TH has a message from the West this morning. The sound of a massive horn could be heard from Fremantle harbour at 6 AM. It was the sound of of the super tanker called "Mundy" setting sail for the open seas. All aboard!!! Hehehehe

    I traded in David Mundy two weeks ago ahead of Clayton Oliver who decided to pump a 175 that week of course. I thought Id made a mistake of massive proportions. But what a long time a couple of weeks is in footy. Last night Mundy pumps a magestic 141 SC in my forward line after 115 SC in the round I missed Oliver. Not complaining now!! I reckon Mundy is now a must have alongside Boak, T Kelly, Dunkley, and Danger up forward. (despite getting injured) Mundy despite his age is in career best form and deserves this little write up from TH this morning.

    Despite Mundy's heroics, I am grappling with carnage again this week with Cogs and M Crouch plonked on the bench. Have to wear a 33 SC from Clark on the field, but beside that, no real turds. (Touch wood) Hoping to escape with 2350 this week. Will be stoked if I can get there. How is everyone else travelling? Cheers community. TH

    • Holty01 says:

      First time I’ve really watched Mundy last night and man he looks good. Incredible he is scoring what he is with his TOG. He will be expensive but I’ll be making a big effort to get him in around the bye rounds.

  158. TOPHAWK1 says:

    • Derek says:

      Mundy never left my preseason team.

      But after round two’s 35pt effort from 59% TOG he was about to plummet in price, I moved him out and got Sloane.

      Next week he is on 32 at half time from 60% TOG and then Fyfe goes down…. Mundy finishes on 109 and continues to pump out big scores even when Fyfe came back.

      I did get him in my draft team.

      How does he go with Blakely back. As a Mundy owner I’d be worried about his TOG falling. It was 69% yesterday.

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Fair point Derek. Blakely came back very well last night after his long lay off. Nonetheless, Mundy was everywhere again last night and to get 141 after spending only 70% of the time on ground, it tells me he is in the form of his life. Right now I am happy to ride the Mundy train. Cheers.

        • Meph says:

          I'm hoping for 2400. My projection has me at 2419. This with Crouch on the bench. So I'm very happy with that. What does everyone think a good score will be this week?

          • DavidC says:

            Anything 2300+ will be a good score this week. Par maybe around 2250. There will be a few very high scores though for those few who dodged the carnage. I know someone projected to get over 2500.

    • TBone_9 says:

      Love me some Mundy mate, if I trade out ROB this week I could afford to bring him in but with my upgrade money I have my eyes set on Lloyd to come into my side this week… although after having to field Parker this week I may have to fill my last fwd premo spot up instead. Looking at 2200 with Answerth, Hayes and Parker on field and Crouch on the pine, it’s gonna be a rough one for me mate

  159. TelescopicCox says:

    Trade Walsh or Cogs for Kelly?

    Trading Walsh means I get Grundy’s VC but need to field Hayes.

    • TelescopicCox says:

      Or go Walsh and Cogs to Rocky and Kelly. I’d leave.Drew and miss on stocker

      • TBone_9 says:

        I like the second option mate, Rocky is still at a really good price and Kelly is a fantastic option as long as you know he will miss at least a couple games randomly for the rest of the season

  160. Pman says:

    With all the outs this week I am forced to field one of Gibbons or Stocker from Carlton in midfield and given they both seem to be slow burners I'm not sure who to start with? Probably leaning towards Gibbons given he has previously pulled out a 100 but would appreciate any feedback (particularly from Carlton fans) as to who is the best option. Cheers…

    • hedski says:

      Probably Gibbons Pman, unfortunately I'm fielding both and Hayes…..

    • Derek says:

      You just never know.

      I had to field 2 out of Answerth, Lockhart, Haynes, Constable, Stocker or Durrsma

      It’s just a lottery. I usually go with the most expensive for what it’s worth, takes guess work out.

  161. Justin says:

    Tossing a coin covered in dog poo!
    Do I field Balta or Setterfield?
    Either way I get some on my fingers.

    • Pman says:

      Balta pumped out an 80 odd last week once The Nank went down and I expect him to get extra work today so I'm starting with Balta….not with any great confidence though!

    • Saritz says:

      Personally, Setterfield. I think he is working into the year nicely. It was always going to be a slow burn for him with his extended time out of the game. I think he can get his hands on the ball enough today and outscore Balta. Good luck!

  162. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Lift Westhoff!!! You useless MOFO!!😡😡

    • Saritz says:

      Not looking good Hawk

    • hedski says:

      Traded him in last week Toppa, been very disappointing, hopefully can push him to f7 after the byes.
      Got you in guns'n'rookies this week, I think you'll cover me, will be bringing in old mate that you got in very soon. 👍

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Cheers Hedski. I am hoping to move Westhoff into the ruck for a while and turn ROB into cash for Fort to raise more cash. Then punt the Hoff later for Gawn. Bought in J Kelly today and slapped the C on his nose. Still not over mate. League match ups can change fast.

        • hedski says:

          I'll be turning ROB into Boak and swinging Bines back to r3.
          Yeah got Kelly in just before the bounce.

  163. Rick Grimes says:

    Frampton comes alive.

  164. Holty01 says:

    Come on Duursma. Do something this 2nd half

  165. LeDoctor says:

    On track for 2265 with Cogs and Crouch on the bench, overall not too bad but Hayes (31), Brayshaw (78) and M. Robinson (80, somewhat injured) cost me my H2H. Will be happy if I can crack 2250 with those 2 outs, been a horror few weeks.

  166. Ja191 says:

    When you thought Collins could beat a 33… sigh

  167. Holty01 says:

    I got all my chores done early today so I could sit down with a beer in hand to watch my beloved Blues. 20min into the first and I’ve turned it off. Don’t know why I bother.

  168. BrownlowBoy says:

    It's good to have you back Lachie Whitfield xx

  169. Holty01 says:

    Fielding Setterfield over Corbett this week isn’t looking great at present. 😢

  170. Holty01 says:

    well that’s my round gone. Too much carnage this week and was unable to recover. Williams gone in 2nd quarter with a hammy. 😫

    • Finnius says:

      Is he guaranteed out?

      • Holty01 says:

        Red Cross against his name in fanfooty. Normally means game over

      • Maverick_ says:

        Yeah I’m cooked now SC can be such a cruel game. Brayshaw survives another week by the looks

      • Lazza says:

        He has twinge in the hammy.. could be a week or two …probably 2 weeks given GWS being over cautious on injuries

  171. Nuggety says:

    If you'd told me Stocker would have more possessions than Cripps at half time I would've been stoked to have brought him in. But…still can't be sure..

  172. Swans2012 says:

    14 giants 49 and above at half time 😳

  173. hayden says:

    setterfield 11 touches 12 SC points… what the hell is he doing with it

  174. TommyC99 says:

    Williams getting injured after a big first half sums my weekend up. Could never produce a big score when you have 2 scores in the 30s from parker and hayes. .Mediocrity from Constable, Pet, duursma and scrim didnt help but thats just rookies for ya. Hopefully Crouch is back next week, and Danger and Williams are given the all clear.

  175. Brn says:

    Try to match my bad week:

    Coniglio and M Crouch out.

    stack, daniels, scrimshaw, baker, duursma, constable and setterfield on field.

    Fyfe Captain and Williams injured.

    Went from a 'certain' 2400, to a likely 2150.

    And… was ranked in top 200 🙁

    • Rocksta_ says:

      Same for most Brn. Rookies have destroyed my score this week. Will probably just crack 2200.

    • s c tragic says:

      I feel your pain it is something when the likes of Balta tons up and Cripps is getting shut down. I couldn't get in to take Grundy's vc score so ended up with Fyfe's C. Also had McCrouch scrim. Williams stocker and hayes on field.

      • Rocksta_ says:

        I took Parker over Balta on field and couldn’t loop as Non player is Bines. 71 points right there, which ultimately cost me the league win.

    • Daz says:

      1550 from 12 last night, looking at about 2200, lol thought i was heading for 2500 odd

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Same here mate. Had a shocker today. Lucky to get to 2150.

    • hedski says:

      Easy to match Brn.
      Cogs, Crouch and Drew out.
      Clark, Dursma, Gibbons, Stocker, Hayes, Parker, Petracelle, Angus, Hoff, Daniels, Williams on field.
      Grundy captain.
      1956….

  176. KSinny says:

    Well I'm stuffed this week, not even gonna make 2100. What do u guys reckon is par this week.

  177. dontblushbaby says:

    I originally had the C on Whitfield but took Grundys 144 , all good , should end up with over 2400 anyway

  178. KSinny says:

    Hahaha only scored 2083 looks like I'm losing heaps of spots

    • Dan says:

      Likewise, I feel I had a bit of a mare scoring 2073.
      Having Parker, Answerth, Hayes, & Setterfield on field, plus underperforming premos didn’t help.

  179. Holty01 says:

    Wow. I was on 1903 with 5 to play and will be lucky to get 2200. How everyone else go?

  180. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Giant win

    That's better Jezza.

    Bolt unlatched, will it be re secured?

  181. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    This week has been absolute hell, about to plummet in rankings. Special shoutout to: Parker, Hayes, Answerth, Cripps, Sicily, Duursma and Petrucelle for being particularly spuddy this week.

    Just scraped in over 2000 at 2050, how did everyone else go?

    • KSinny says:

      2083 with Answerth, Gibbons, Lockhart, Duursma, Petrucelle, Cripps and Matt Crouch missing.

    • Derek says:

      This morning I was looking so good, but then Sunday football happened.

      2152 was all I could scrap together.

      • Browncow says:

        2140. The good, the bad and the ugly this week!

      • COREYSC says:

        Agreed mate, projected 2300 then it all fell apart with all my Carlton players I had a feeling they’d flop but not so badly wound
        Up with 2173

    • Holty01 says:

      2198.
      Crouch, Cripps and Williams didn’t help
      Had Setterfield, Clark, Stocker and Baker on field

      • Maverick_ says:

        2138 and still won 9 of my 10 leagues 3 being JR community leagues so i think the average will be 2100-2150?
        Crouch, cripps and williams hurt
        and had too field Larkey, Setters and clarke.

      • Holty01 says:

        And missing Moore didn’t help either

        • Maverick_ says:

          yeah looking back over scores more closely i think it'd be 2150-2200 with a few outliars.
          I think you just played the wrong teams on the wrong weekend holty haha
          I also had moore out. swang rozee forward and fielded clarke (33). yuck!

    • hedski says:

      See my reply above to Brn. I'm not typing that shit again AB.

      • AuroraBorealis?! says:

        Yeah looks like you've had a rough one hedski. It's been a case of absolute feast or famine this round

    • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

      Was looking ok then the giants played the blues.

      Had a couple of blues but also had more giants. 😎

    • Russty_ says:

      Hi AB…guys, if I'd left the VC on Gawn and put Balta onfield instead of Parker I would've ended up with a half decent score, instead of 2064, shizenhauser, lost 8 out of 10 Leagues and plummeted in the rankings, gotta love this game lol
      Had Crouch and Moore out too….always next week.
      Congrats to all the coaches who scored well this week.

      • great time for me to play you in 2 leagues Next week could be totally different Russty. Last year I scored 2565 and won Pieman's highest score ,then came out and scored 2k ,WITH THE SAME TEAM ,happens bud Wonder what happened to pieman? good luck next week NDD

        • Russty_ says:

          Well done mate your team's solid, maybe Pman is Pieman incognito?…maybe he got sick of all the drama last year?…hope it's not another reason like his health or something, his posts were always interesting and informative.
          He wouldn't have much to gripe about regarding Bucks this year though haha

          • Pman could be The drama has died down a lot tho.Bringing in Whit this week and keeping my last 3 def plus balta for byes or later Balta and Hore are keepers for a while

            • Russty_ says:

              I left Balta off the field this week…big mistake and he's now become a money making machine….who would've thought that?…lol
              Yeah notice how there isn't any drama when those 2 stay away…hopefully they've found a better home for their outlet.

        • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

          struggling a bit this year
          pie had a down week like most with outs and rookie scores.

          NDD that is more like it from Jezza and he didn't kick a snag.
          Found one in finalyson.

          Jez could have done that last week when I played you

          Kelly was a nice trade in.

        • Beezneez says:

          Hi NDD. You beat me by 6 in G'N'R. Thought I had you till Williams didn't return after halftime.

    • Disaster says:

      1963. Lowest score in memory. Disaster of a round and wasted 2 trades.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      2140 with a few injuries to deal with, only won two of my nine league games, lost another close one by three points and slid down the rankings to 33,000.

      • Russty_ says:

        Hey John, rankings don't matter much unless you're already in the top 1000 now, from here it should be all about winning your League games, and what you need to to do to achieve that I think.
        Like Clint said, "A man's got to know his limitations"…haha
        I'm happy to know my limitations, I'm obviously not a high ranking player, but when focusing on Leagues have had some good success in the past.

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          I just looked to see how I was going and I am in the top eight in five of my nine leagues, so considering how I started I'm fairly happy with that. If I keep going next year and I am really thinking about giving it away, like a few other things, just for my sanity, I think I will have to cut right back on the number of leagues I'm in.

          • Russty_ says:

            If you feel like you have to do that mate then do it…but seriously, rank doesn't matter all that much unless you've somehow managed to start with the perfect team, and placed all the right rookies on field, after you've of course picked all the right rookies, honestly, a lot of it is luck early on, and then just riding that luck if you managed to do all the right things early on.
            Winning Leagues is very satisfying because it says that you were the best team out of 18 teams.
            That's something worth playing for.
            The best we can hope for apart from winning leagues is to improve from our previous year, but there's also a lot of luck involved in that too.

            • Beezneez says:

              It's certainly about luck Russty. Often you can be beaten in your league game but your score can beat all or most of the other teams so it can be all about who you draw. Luck with injuries can play a huge part as well – look at this week. I had 6 outs and Williams didn't return after half time when sitting on 75. On to next week.

            • JohnDJ59 says:

              I think I will give it away, I don't want to have anything to do with the Murdoch papers anymore, I canceled my foxtel a few months back and this will be the final cleansing from his right wing corporation.

    • chilli says:

      2432 stoked with that – bit of bonus with drew not playing bringing baltas 101 in…make a bit up for lasts weeks carnage!

    • Lazza says:

      2097… had to field 7 rookies – a big shout out to Duursma 56, Petrucelle 52, Wilkie 50, Stocker 45, Setterfield 29, Gibbons 28.. and De Boer’s bitch 66

      • Russty_ says:

        Yeah Lazz, I expected more out of Cripps, fancy a big strong bull like that letting some spud tag him out of the game, I have lost some respect now, but De boer is a tagger to be feared now I guess.

    • Daz says:

      was a bloody Sunday, ended 2268, which I dropped 40 odd to 89th. Awell hopefully Mcrouch back this week so I don't have to cop a delightful setter-field score.

  182. Hawks says:

    2312 with Danger capt (off field early with ankle issues) & Zac Williams doing his hammy late in the 2nd Qtr (would have gone huge).

    Happy with the score, but man what it could have been.

  183. COREYSC says:

    This week will be moving week for alot of supercoaches especially those with no injuries as for me I’ll dropping outside the top one thousand I believe

  184. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Was hoping to bring Whitfield in in a few weeks, guess f*cking not now

    • Maverick_ says:

      I'll still bring him in right away for williams you'd think he's gone for close to a month with a hamstring?
      especially with how conservative GWS are with injuries

      • AuroraBorealis?! says:

        yeah good point actually Mav, i reckon that'll be the most popular trade of the week

      • BrownlowBoy says:

        Supposedly only hamstring tightness, and with the score like it was there was no need for him to play.

    • Iamme says:

      Yeah Aurora, i gonna bring him in as soon as SC is open for business, he would of dropped some dollars this week…..despite going massive. If you wait and he keeps up his 2019 form he will be upping in price in no time. Straight swap for Williams for me.

  185. Iamme says:

    2099. I didn't see the game but looks like Cripps can be tagged after all…..Of the 6 rookies on field only Hore topped 65.

  186. Great fact hunt says:

    Anyone know about cogs injury. Someone told me he is out for 10 weeks with a finger injury.

    • dontblushbaby says:

      Yes, finger ,he did it in round 6 but it got worse, not sure about the 10 weeks though ?

  187. Trades says:

    My team is in such disarray… no rookies making money, no rookies to bring in, under-performing “premos”. Injuries, late outs, wasted trades. This is the most challenging season in a while for me.
    I can’t see my team getting to full premo. I just won’t have enough trades or the money.

    • Russty_ says:

      Hey trades, might be a good time to just walk away for awhile, just make sure you don't have any outs in the coming weeks but just don't trade if you can help it.
      Depends on whether you play for rank or Leagues though…if it's rank you always feel like you need to keep up with the Joneses, if it's Leagues you can come back into the top 8 by saving trades and having them near the end when others will have run out by trading too aggressively early on.
      Sometimes you just need to be patient.

      • Trades says:

        Always good advice Russty, cheers mate

          I try mate but I'm probably not qualified to be giving advice, sometimes just taking a break and not trading your ass off can pay dividends by just conserving trades. Others in your leagues won't and will run low, or out at the business end, I need to do the same, there's only so many weeks in a row where we can try to fix our teams until we're stuffed.
          Just gotta ease off sometimes, even if it means losing 3 or 4 League games in a row.
          Good luck mate.

    I’ve got B.Smith at D4 Walsh at M7 and Moore are f4. I think I’m in trouble. Just not enough cash generation and with 19 trades left I’m getting low
