SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 10

Published by Kev on

To paraphrase our Lord and saviour and also Patch’s favourite band from the 90’s (and also currently his favourite band), Smash Mouth, ‘the disasters start coming and they don’t stop coming,’ which is how I feel this week. I’ve been waffling on in the last few weeks in the Panic Room about upgrade season, but every time I try to update I’m forced to again field a crap rookie (I’m looking at you Michael Gibbons) because I’ll lose a premium to injury or Chris Scott just being a jerk. 

There are so many outs and drops this week it feels like the bye weeks are starting early. Which in a way is great because that means my week will be a disaster straight away, it usually takes until Sunday for the wheels to fall off completely. Always look on the bright side of things.

It just wouldn’t be a weekend without muttering angrily at fanfooty so I’m back for another week of footy goodness to dive into. The podcast is really moving up in the world being on Spotify and all (Lek tells me this is good…?). Barron is a magician that can somehow pump out a 3,000 word article about rookies impressing in the reserves and yet we have NONE at AFL level (except for you Noah Balta, ex oh). I assume everyone is VC’ing Grundy tonight, just in case he fails Damo has got plenty of captain choices for us to fall back on, and Matty is making the role of cursed cheat sheet writer his own with another beauty this week.

The News

It really is all hands on deck this week. Entire benches have been wiped out and many are facing on-field donuts if finalised Sunday teams continue with the carnage theme. For tonight, Buddy and JPK are back to strengthen the Swans, James Rowbottom was panic traded into a few sides last week and has been dropped. Daniel Wells will play his first game of the year, as will Jack Madgen, who gets the unenviable task of stopping Buddy.

Hawthorn have also strengthened bringing into James Frawley and Chad Wingard. Dylan Moore and Big Boy make way. Port are debuting Peter Ladhams (RUC – 123.9k) for the injured Scott Lycett. Robbie Gray is also a returnee. Debutants from last week, Joe Atley and Joel Garner have been omitted. Tim English is back for the Dogs, but continuing the “drop all the rookies” theme for the week, Will Hayes and Lachie Young have been given the axe. LDU replaces Taylor Garner at the Roos. Bryce Gibbs continues his stop/start year, this time dropped for the returning Wayne Milera. West Coast have made 3 changes, but they won’t have much of an impact in long form SuperCoach. Chris Burgess has amazingly been recalled, yes we’re at the point of the year where a guy averaging 37 is a saviour for many to avoid a donut. Some big moves at the cats, Patrick Dangerfield won’t play this week and Charlie Constable has been dropped again. No Esava means Darcy Fort survives another week, Tom Atkins also returns after a week out. Joe Daniher is out of the Dreamtime clash against Richmond. Callum Coleman-Jones (RUC/FWD – 123.9k) has Bradbury’d his way to a debut.  

On Sunday, Zac Williams will miss with his sore hammy. Cogs and Jackson Hately are on the extended bench for the Giants, as is Brayden Preuss for the Dees. Matt Parker, Will Setterfield, and Liam Stocker are all on extended benches for the clash of the titans that will be Saints v Carlton. Kade Simpson will make his return. Freo have again named Brett Bewley (MID – 117.3k), can you hurry up and play him please Ross? Connor Ballenden (FWD – 123.9k) has been named by the Lions. They also regain Luke Hodge, while Archie Smith is on the extended bench. 

The House of Evil

Despite a few debuts last week there’s really no-one I’d go early on if you can avoid it, especially with the mid season draft on Monday we could get some better options next week.

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

You really should be tripping over yourself to bring in Lachie Whitfield this week. If his price wasn’t tantalising enough, Zac Williams’ hamstring is playing up which points to even more responsibility (and points) for Lachie. Fresh off pulverising the Blues, his price actually dropped 18k due the injury effected 45 in round 6. His b.e is still a healthy 117 this week, so you could get away with holding for a week, but he really is head and shoulders the best pick this week. 

If you already have him, for only $300 more you can pick off Jake Lloyd who is available the at the lowest price he’s been at this season. 

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

Dreamtime! I love this game, I’ve been a few times myself and it’s an awesome experience. Let’s have a look.


Dig a little deeper at maybe the “taking the cheap ruck” isn’t as cut and dried tomorrow night. 

Richmond give up 93DS to the opposition number 1 ruck this season (107DS last 4) but the returning Shaun McKernon (9.4k) has muddied the waters a bit. Despite Tom Bellchambers (10.1k) having a handy record against Richmond (93DS from 3) he has averaged 61DS with McKernon in the side this year and 70DS without. In the 14 games they’ve played together, Belly averages 74. It’s respectable, but you won’t be getting value from him.

Callum Coleman-Jones (5k) get his shot from being the last left standing rather than outstanding VFL form. His numbers per game (12.5 disposals (5.8 kicks), 4 tackles, 3 marks, 7.8 hitouts) don’t leap off the page, but good enough to put up 50-60DS value game if he can hit those benchmarks.


Noah Balta (6.4k) is the chalkiest lock and load value play tomorrow night. Josh Begley (5.8k) scored 54 last week and will be good value again if he can back that up. Josh Caddy (10.5k) has a handy record against Essendon, who are about middle of the road when it comes to curtailing medium forwards. He also saw more mid time last week as the Tigers try to get bigger bodies through the middle. Trying to pick which Tiger small forward will go off is difficult, Liam Baker (8.4k) has the safest floor due to some more midfield minutes. Richmond have had their problems holding medium forwards if you want to have a flyer on Jake Stringer (9.8k). Dusty (MID / 13.9k) has a ridiculous average of 125 in his past 5 against the Bombers and was back in a big way last week, scoring 135DS.


“Attacking Richmond via the backline” may not be a thing anymore. The 113DS conceded to medium defenders since round 1 has shrunk to 90DS over the past 4. Conversely, Essendon’s 93DS season average has risen to 99DS over the past month. 

As a card carrying member of the Sydney Stack (MID / 10.1k) fan club I love him here and pretty much everywhere. Shane Edwards (MID / 10.2k) loves this fixture, and Nick Vlastuin’s price (10.6k) hasn’t caught up with his recent output. At the top end, Brandon Ellis (MID / 13k) has flourished since being moved onto a wing and Bachar Houli (12.9k) has scored above 113DS in 3 of his past 4. 

For value, David Astbury (7.7k) has reeled in 23 marks in two weeks and without Joe Daniher to keep him busy, could see another value smashing game.


Nothing under 10k appeals to me here. Zach Merrett (15.8k) is a lock against a midfield that doesn’t tag. Darcy Parish (11.3k) has scored between 87-93 in his last 4 against Richmond, and there’s plenty of DPP’s highlighted above you can put into your mids. 

I’d be praying to the SuperCoach Gods this week, community. It’s gonna be a tough one!


TommyC99 · 24/05/2019 at 11:15

Love ti again Kev! My favourite article for the week.

Think i'm gonna hold Williams, and if hes out next week, straight sideways trade to sicily.

Was gonna trade Parker due to high BE but with the carnage he survives for another couple of weeks.

Looking at Moore/ROB – Young and Constable – Whitfield. Few concerns though. I noticed Whitfield has a poor record against the dees. Should we just be ignoring that and hope he drops a little next week?

Also trade out Moore or ROB? I think moore will make a little more cash, but ROB is a warm body and could be useful if he gets to round 13?

Would love yout houghts community!

    Daz · 24/05/2019 at 11:48

    I have a similar problem, think Moore will play more if fit so I would trade ROB in your position. I'm going Parker to Young and Moore to Whitfield keeping Williams, Drew and Constable. At least I'm currently happy with the 3 on field when playing and they won't loose money like Parker will this week. Have to trade Moore to reach Whitfield but Constable/Drew would of gone if the cash was there.

    SC_Kev7 · 24/05/2019 at 14:24

    Cheers, Tommy. I’ve tried so many different combinations of trades for this week. It’s awful. If Twitter is any indication, the carnage will be felt far and wide.

    Get Whitfield any way you can. Won’t be this cheap for long

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/05/2019 at 11:39

Ugly. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🙈" src=""&gt;

Only way to describe it or could say hang on this is gonna get messy!

With Kennedy to play for the blues could get real ugly real quick at 5pm tonight. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🤭" src=""&gt;

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/05/2019 at 11:40

Geez Kev.

You do know two teams play in draft stars dont ya? 🤣

    SC_Kev7 · 24/05/2019 at 14:34

    Haha. Look maybe a bit of bias crept in there 😜 My game script is Richmond will smash ‘em but if Essendon can make a game of it Shiel and Stringer are not a bad shout in the mids. I hate Shaun McKernon but he’ll probably play key forward and Richmond struggles against height, same with Belly if he’s resting forward. Aaron Francis played fwd last week and looked okay, unfortunately he’s def only

Daz · 24/05/2019 at 11:55

This type of week will kill us during the byes, I have Danger, Crouch, Williams, Moore, Constable and Drew as regular on fielders. Won't have a doughnut but fielding some meek averages this week.

DavidC · 24/05/2019 at 11:58

This does not sound good for Libba and Dunkley. From the coach on Lipinsky:

"There were a few things Pat's been working on and this whole start to the VFL season he's played as an inside mid for Footscray. We've been rapt with his progress there and how he's blossoming, so we'll give him an opportunity as an inside mid at AFL level," Beveridge said.

    SC_Kev7 · 24/05/2019 at 14:35

    Mr. Magnets at it again!

Dash · 24/05/2019 at 12:02

20K – 21 Trades Thinking Collins, Duursma or Gibbons. Just not sure who to trade in.
Thoughts welcome.

Laird, Sicily, Whitfield, Clark, Duursma, Answerth, (Burgess, Collins)
Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Setterfield, Atkins, (Hayes, Scott, Gibbons)
Gawn, Grundy, (Bines)
Heeney, Boak, T Kelly, Dunkley, Balta, Corbett (Parker, Danger)

Rivo · 24/05/2019 at 12:05

Good work Kev!
Panic indeed – 5 players on extended benches! Black cats and broken mirrors have come early this season.

My dilemma is to go for Whitfield now or wait another week. 23 trades and low cash. Have the top 5 mids, and defence ok, incl Lloyd, Laird, Williams.

Considering the below…

1. Walsh & Drew to Oliver & Young;
2. Walsh & Drew to Whitfield & Young.

Thoughts community?

    Rivo · 24/05/2019 at 13:53

    Do I base the decision above on bye structures,
    Point generation or value for $?

    Finnius · 24/05/2019 at 14:10

    Whitfield is the top player in his position, Oliver isn't. Get him in.

      Rivo · 24/05/2019 at 15:05

      Thanks Finnius. Do you think he will out score Oliver or is it line ball?

        Finnius · 24/05/2019 at 15:28

        I think he will probably outscore him. Even if they are the same, the fact that Whitfield is a defender gives you the opportunity to get a higher averaging player in the mids – i.e. Whitfield over Stewart is more valuable than Cripps over Oliver.

          Rivo · 24/05/2019 at 15:40

          Yeah true. Risky week with no bench cover for the week but reckon I’m not alone.

Westy · 24/05/2019 at 12:06

Currently having issues with Williams, Moore, Constable, Hayes, Hately, Dangerfield and Drew.
Makes it difficult to upgrade fattened (and not so fattened) rookies like Petrucelle, Parker, Clark, Gibbons, Duursma, Stack and O'Brien.
Not to mention Libba.
So there's half the team on some sort of sad case!

Maverick_ · 24/05/2019 at 12:23

19 trades 230k
I have my injuries on the bench already with *’s

DEF: hurn sicily BSmith Duursma Clark Answerth (williams* burgees)

MID: Cripps Fyfe Oliver Treloar TKelly Brayshaw Walsh Atkins ( Crouch* Scott Setters)

RUCK: Gawn ROB (bines)

FWD: Cameron Heeney Dunkley Rozee Larkey MLewis (danger* Moore*)

I have two options: this will leave me with 5k
Moore ->Marshall
Walsh -> macrae/Whitfield

Or I can do: leaving me with 20k
Moore -> macrae and hold Walsh and pass on Marshall Walsh .

Rozee moore Burgess answerth duursma setters allows a lot of flexibility which has been crucial

    SC_Kev7 · 24/05/2019 at 14:38

    Like option one, Mav. Whitfield over Macrae. Walsh still scoring okay but slowly losing the cash he made. Jump off now

      Maverick_ · 24/05/2019 at 14:46

      Thanks Kev.
      Hopefully longer isn’t named tonight if he is I’ll pass on Moore -> Marshall I’ll wait before I lock it in.

      Maverick_ · 24/05/2019 at 14:51

      Call me crazy but I am considering brayshaw to Whitfield instead of Walsh Kev. reasons being he has tonned up 3 times and a R14 bye could be nice cover! Brayshaw has that dreaded R13 and lower avg only 1 Ton both the exact same price too…

    PieeFann · 24/05/2019 at 19:37

    do you not think brayshaw/walsh is too 'luxury'?
    i think so

AuroraBorealis?! · 24/05/2019 at 12:27

Do you guys think Stocker will make the cut this week? If not i'm fielding a donut

    Shake_n_bake · 24/05/2019 at 12:38

    I think he’ll keep his spot

      TommyC99 · 24/05/2019 at 16:52

      Im worried simmo could push him out

        AuroraBorealis?! · 24/05/2019 at 17:10

        As was i Tommy, all good now though

    hedski · 24/05/2019 at 17:06

    Stocker is in AB

      AuroraBorealis?! · 24/05/2019 at 17:10

      Beautiful, keen for a 45

        Swans2012 · 24/05/2019 at 17:41

        He’s been getting the ball, I reckon he’ll go ok.

Shake_n_bake · 24/05/2019 at 12:37

Westhoff now that Lycett out 🤔

    Derek · 24/05/2019 at 15:11

    What is Ladhams like? Ruck?

      Shake_n_bake · 24/05/2019 at 15:32

      He is a ruckman. Just don’t think he plays as many mins. Westhoff good for my byes. Ruck swing, want to see if Parker & Setters plays.

    Finnius · 24/05/2019 at 15:26

    wayyyyy too much unpredictability for mine shake.

    Great fact hunt · 24/05/2019 at 19:42

    I would not touch Westhoff until Dixon is back which will release him from full forward

Trades · 24/05/2019 at 12:43

O’brien & Moore out
Heeney and Simpson in (via Bines)

g. · 24/05/2019 at 13:02

Wills, Marsh or Young as a downgrade? (Leaning towards Wills as don't love going early on rookies)
Hurn, Whitfield or Mundy as an upgrade? (Leaning towards Hurn as his breakeven is the lowest)


    Holty01 · 24/05/2019 at 13:45

    Agree with Wills although I won’t be bringing him in.

      Peter · 24/05/2019 at 14:45

      Hi team Parker to Young Wilkie to Hurn good trade? Leaves me with 25k I already have lloyd and Whitfield

        Finnius · 24/05/2019 at 15:29

        Sounds pretty good.

    SC_Kev7 · 24/05/2019 at 14:40

    Wills probably in trouble when Adams returns

      AuroraBorealis?! · 24/05/2019 at 17:12

      As a Collingwood fan this was always my thought, Adams back next week or the week after

DavidC · 24/05/2019 at 13:03

Hately's ownership is up to 17.3%, go figure. Could be sitting on the bench for the entire bye rounds.

Sarah · 24/05/2019 at 13:06

Can't go wrong with either but Lloyd or Whitfield this week, who should I bring in?

    Holty01 · 24/05/2019 at 13:43

    Probably makes sense to go Whitfield as in 2 weeks his price will be through the roof.

      dontblushbaby · 24/05/2019 at 14:19

      plus Whitfield plays round 13 whereas Lloyd doesn't if that helps to make up your mind

LordDeb · 24/05/2019 at 13:13

Now it's complicated<img src="; width="1"/>

Steve · 24/05/2019 at 14:20

Who is best FWD to bring in , money no issue.All ready have Kelly Walters Heeney Danger

    KSinny · 24/05/2019 at 14:41

    Honestly really like Marshall, and he's got the blues this week

      Holty01 · 24/05/2019 at 15:34

      tend to agree Sinny. Even Mundy might be an option although very expensive

    Rick Grimes · 24/05/2019 at 14:47

    Boak. He has a highish BE but is capable of getting it. Looking like a top 10 player, overall.

      Maverick_ · 24/05/2019 at 14:59

      Boak if money’s no option..
      with limited cash generation this year I’m going for value & getting Marshall this week consistently over 90 each week. 🔐

    Finnius · 24/05/2019 at 15:28

    Boak for sure. Good bye as well

s c tragic · 24/05/2019 at 14:47

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Buddy kick 6 on Madgen last time he was in for the pies? Seems strange, are they going for 8 tonight or will he slay the dragon.

    Yeahnah · 24/05/2019 at 17:05

    I think last time out, he only kicked one playing on Madgen. He kicked all of his goals on other defenders

Redd · 24/05/2019 at 15:14

Walsh to Mcrae or Williams to Whitfield?

    Maverick_ · 24/05/2019 at 15:19

    Is walsh to Whitfield possible?

      Holty01 · 24/05/2019 at 15:36

      He must have Duursma or Answerth

        Maverick_ · 24/05/2019 at 15:42

        Yup. Hopefully he has one If not both if so that’s the move I’d be making.

          Redd · 24/05/2019 at 15:59

          Cheers Mav N Holty yeh ive got xav and noah but no dpp mids!

            Maverick_ · 24/05/2019 at 16:16

            Duursma & answerth both in ya backline? Perfect if so swing one into the middle and it opens up a new mid/def swing that’s what I’m doing this week redd. Rozee Burgess & Moore’s swing have got me out of trouble several times with all this carnage.

              Jace · 24/05/2019 at 16:45

              That's all good until you trade them out and don't have the DPP anymore.

              Redd · 24/05/2019 at 19:36

              Yeh Mav cant swing one into the middle without a dpp defender in my mids to swing back? Mid bench is gibbons hayes n rowbottom with stack n walsh onfield.

                Maverick_ · 24/05/2019 at 19:39

                can you not hit trade on walsh press 's' on duursma swing him into your mids and buy whitfield, redd?

                  Redd · 24/05/2019 at 20:18

                  Wow was not aware that was possible mav! 5th season of SC and had no idea!

                    Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 20:23

                    Did you never wonder why there was an 'S' on other lines mid trade Redd?…at least you know now, should be a game changer for you from here on out.
                    Fwd to back, fwd to mid, ruck to fwd, def to mid…play around with it, before the round starts next week.
                    You can do all sorts of funky trading shenanigans now 🙂

                    Redd · 24/05/2019 at 21:18

                    Haha yeh im really lookin forward to trying it out Rusty. I honestly have never noticed it. I really thought you could only swap them on field. 🤯🤯 Sittin in the top 1% time to push on. Really appreciate the advice as always

RealDealNeale · 24/05/2019 at 15:34

Fellas. My forward line has been ripped open. I've got Lycett, De Goey, Danger and Schultz all out.

If Stocker & Setterfield are named I can go Gibbons & Lycett > Young & Boak, moving Danger to my mid bench and having Stocker cover.

If not I'll have only $520K to upgrade so I can get Boak. Best option sub $520K? Would it be Heeney?

    RealDealNeale · 24/05/2019 at 15:36

    Forgot to mention if I do that I have no room for Boak.

    Forward line is Kelly, Dunkley, De Goey, Danger, Marshall, Lycett (Schultz, Setterfield)

    Derek · 24/05/2019 at 15:54

    How much do you want to keep DeGoey?

    redherringfc · 25/05/2019 at 08:39

    Did you go for Heeney? If not, jump on Hawkins. He’s been poking along, getting around 100 most weeks. A huge score is coming his way soon (starting at 7:25 tonight). Cameron is another option, but he has a huge breakeven – which he still might get.

      RealDealNeale · 25/05/2019 at 20:45

      Should’ve taken your advice! Ended up going Boak as I still think he will be a top 6 forward, but at the moment Hawkins is looking the goods

Big G · 24/05/2019 at 15:34

who is thinking matt parker wont make the final 22 this week?

    TommyC99 · 24/05/2019 at 16:57

    Dunstan and Acres are locks so its between Parker, Coffield, Long, White, Longer and Clark for 2 spots. If saints don't go the extra ruck i think he should be alright, although i dont know the form of the other blokes

    hedski · 24/05/2019 at 17:05

    He is in Big G.

Derek · 24/05/2019 at 15:59

Was it Melbourne who tagged Whitfield last year. He scored a 50ish?

    JohnDJ59 · 24/05/2019 at 16:02

    Yes, 61.

Shake_n_bake · 24/05/2019 at 16:40

      TommyC99 · 24/05/2019 at 16:54

      Coach TH

    hedski · 24/05/2019 at 18:21

    Great call Shake, he's out.

G.C. · 24/05/2019 at 17:04

Who's a higher priority to trade out? Walsh (and get Lloyd/Whitfield) or Duursma (and get Dunkley/Marshall)?

Walsh trade is a bigger premo get, but I'd also be trading out the rookie with the better points production. No matter which trade I do, the other rookie will need to play this round.

hedski · 24/05/2019 at 17:04

Setterfield out.
Stocker and Parker hold their spots.
Bewley to debut…finally.

TommyC99 · 24/05/2019 at 17:04

Stocker and Parker keep their spots, Setterfield dropped.

Bewley to finally debut

    hedski · 24/05/2019 at 17:08

    Ha ha. Great minds Tommy

      TommyC99 · 24/05/2019 at 17:09

      ahahaha great minds indeed Hedski

      Shake_n_bake · 24/05/2019 at 17:09

      B long gets a gig.

Tommy · 24/05/2019 at 17:07

Setterfield dropped too, wonderful. Need to go early on either hinge or young? Who do people recommend?

    TommyC99 · 24/05/2019 at 17:09

    Young for sure

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/05/2019 at 17:37


COREYSC · 24/05/2019 at 17:17

Wow Parker kept his spot unbelievable haha hopefully he can bag 3 or 4 goals against the Blues this weekend
Drew to Young
Duursma to Whitfield
I'll be fielding exactly 22 this week no bench at all! I am in the hands of the supercoach gods now please will the gods let me stay inside the top 2K this week!

Stickman · 24/05/2019 at 17:17

I've gone Duursma to Lloyd this week but only have 21 on field because I have Dangerfield, Drew and Setterfield out in the forward line. Should I use the second trade to go Walsh to Worpel and move one of those into the mid or Drew down to Young. Got 90k in the bank.

    The Ranger · 24/05/2019 at 17:28

    I'm taking the punt on Young to avoid the donut.
    Fingers are crossed.

      Derek · 24/05/2019 at 17:57

      same. don't even know what he looks like, but he's in my team.

        The Ranger · 24/05/2019 at 19:04

        Mature aged, renowned for his pace, tackling and forward pressure, surely the Saints will give him a run of games…

    JingleBells · 24/05/2019 at 17:49

    Heeney? Buddy's back and Heeney is named on the wing – only 453K

    silversovereign · 24/05/2019 at 18:06

    I’m taking the punt on wills

AuroraBorealis?! · 24/05/2019 at 17:24

I'm fielding Lockhart instead of Answerth and Young instead of Parker this week, watch them both tonne up while my on field players both do an acl in the first 5 minutes

    JingleBells · 24/05/2019 at 17:58

    Nah if anybody breaks it will be the bargain defender that I just got for $556,400 optimists.
    Who suffers more in supercoach the eternal optimist or the eternal pessimist?

The Ranger · 24/05/2019 at 17:34

Atkins or Butters onfield?

    Swans2012 · 24/05/2019 at 17:36

    Butters I reckon might go ok in the wet, I’m vcing rocky in the hope of rain and mud and contested posies everywhere

    hedski · 24/05/2019 at 18:49

    Atkins against the suns Ranger.

    Saritz · 24/05/2019 at 19:07

    Butters looking like he needs a run in the magoos for mine. Surprised Drew didn't come back in for him. Atkins against the Suns will get amoungst it

Matt · 24/05/2019 at 17:38

Is whitfield or Macrae priority this week?
which even i don't get tonight may be on my wishlist til post byes.
feel i'm a bit light in the mids too but happy to get which ever 🙂

    Derek · 24/05/2019 at 17:56

    do you have Neale?

      matt · 24/05/2019 at 18:01

      nope and cannot afford him sadly

Dash · 24/05/2019 at 17:39

20K – 21 Trades Thinking Collins, Duursma or Parker to go.
Like everyone, feeling stuck this week. Trade option strategies welcome.
Maybe Marshall, Houli, Billings. I don't know.
Laird, Sicily, Whitfield, Clark, Duursma, Answerth, (Burgess, Collins)
Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Gibbons, Atkins, (Hayes, Scott, Setterfield)
Gawn, Grundy, (Bines)
Heeney, Boak, T Kelly, Dunkley, Balta, Corbett (Parker, Danger)

    Dash · 24/05/2019 at 18:30

    Let me know your trade advice. Cheers

      hedski · 24/05/2019 at 19:19

      Not much cash there Dash.
      Parker to Young and Walsh to Dusty???

        Dash · 24/05/2019 at 19:32

        Was considering holding Walsh there.
        Had considered Duursma and Collins, but not sure what to do there. Can't go to Hurn/Lloyd, Potentially could do something with Houli

    Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 19:32

    I'd be looking to get rid of Collins, out for 6 weeks, maybe to Marsh, and one of your 3 non playing mid rookies out to Stocker or Bewley maybe…even DPP for Young.
    At least then you'll have some money next week.

      Dash · 24/05/2019 at 19:39

      You reckon I hold Duursma for one more. He's the one with the most money for me at the moment, besides Walsh.
      I reckon hold Walsh and Libba until Byes or did you like the Dusty option.

        Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 19:55

        Hey Dash, don't mind the Dusty option but you need some cash generation and some cash, your mid bench is dead at the moment.
        I'd double down the injured/non players.

          Dash · 24/05/2019 at 20:26

          That's true. Do you think keep Gibbons, Atkins and Parker. Which one would you get rid of?

            Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 20:33

            I'd keep em, and anyone who's playing this week, except maybe Parker to Young. .but Collins has to go, I'd actually go Collins and Scott out but you could go Parker out to Young.

Daniel · 24/05/2019 at 17:43

Who should I bring in for constable this week, rupert wills, brett bewley or mitchell hinge (swinging duursma or lockhart to my mids), I currently have 2 donuts in the mids with setterfield/crouch/hayes/drew and constable out, also is it better to trade o'brien out for macrae this week as his cash generation has peaked or to trade crouch to macrae and keep o'brien for one more week?

Ryan · 24/05/2019 at 17:45

Need a downgrade option, is Stocker okay? Don't want to go early on Young.

    Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 18:06

    He did some good things in his 2nd game, probs end up one of those 50 average rooks.

Rick Grimes · 24/05/2019 at 17:45

How many games we reckon Hately gets. One and done, again?

    Beezneez · 24/05/2019 at 17:54

    Don't know whether it's relevant to your question Rick but he didn't make it again.

      Rick Grimes · 24/05/2019 at 18:30

      Ah yep, none is the answer. Will end up with a 90 average.

    Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 18:04

    2 and done maybe, the 2 he's already played, coach musn't rate him.

      JingleBells · 24/05/2019 at 18:14

      If gets associated with SOS in any way scratch him off your list. That guy has bought more spuds than the smiths chip factory!

        Tommy · 24/05/2019 at 18:16

        He was recruited last year? Don’t know how that has anything to do with SOS

        Jacko · 24/05/2019 at 18:45

        Not sure what you're on about mate

        Lazza · 25/05/2019 at 17:32


      Beezneez · 25/05/2019 at 11:44

      Can't understand it. Last year 18yo and playing against men in the SANFL. Was rated just behind Lukosius Rankine and Rozee.

Ja191 · 24/05/2019 at 17:48

Setterfield out welp looks like I’m eating krispy kreme’s

JingleBells · 24/05/2019 at 18:07

who is the better option Wills or Young?
If I get Wills = Parker is F6 this week
If I get young he will be F6 this week
Wills will be M10

cash_cows · 24/05/2019 at 18:08

104k + 21 trades
Hurn, Lloyd, WILLIAMS, Hore, Duursma, Answerth – Burgess, Lockhart
Cripps, Fyfe, Oliver, Macrae, MCROUCH, Danger, Walsh, Atkins – Setters, BScott, Stocker
Grundy, Gawn – ROB
Kelly, Daniel, Heeney, Dahlhaus, Drew, Petruccelle – Balta, Corbett

Traded Cogs last week after given an excuse to do so.
Looking to try to keep Williams and Crouch as a result of that and I think they're worth keeping.
Because of these out, looking to keep Walsh for some pts this week, even though I know he's high BE.
Need Whitfield so looking at the following, is this the best I can do this week?

Drew + Petrucelle > Whitfield + Young

    Maverick_ · 24/05/2019 at 18:14

    Danger is also out cash_cows so you may need to revise ya plans or you could get a donut?

      cash_cows · 24/05/2019 at 18:23

      Yeah just forgot to move him in the write up. It'll have to be stocker on field.
      Very bare bones team.

      What you reckon? The trades I have lined up are the best I can do?

Mick · 24/05/2019 at 18:13

Anyone have a decent read on Z Williams' injury? Will it only be a week or two or more likely 3-4 and not play again till after the byes?

    Maverick_ · 24/05/2019 at 18:16

    Noone knows Mick and GWS have a history of hiding seriousness and lenghts of injuries just look at greene & JKelly.
    I'm yet to see any rock solid articles i'll hold though his ceiling is high he'll be a nice D6 for me i hope

    TommyC99 · 24/05/2019 at 18:51

    I'm holding this week until we hear more. If he needs to be traded next week Sicily is ripe for the picking

    Saritz · 24/05/2019 at 19:02

    Officially GWS are saying 2 weeks

TelescopicCox · 24/05/2019 at 18:20

Looks like ROB & Drew for Whitfield & Young is the go for me. Don’t like going early on Rookies but I need to make 2 trades to avoid a donut

Jeffrey · 24/05/2019 at 18:27

Hinge better then a young?

    Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 18:44

    Young's got the better bye, but will depend on him getting goals to score ok probably.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/05/2019 at 18:38

Unless constable gets a hail mary call tomorrow dont expect him to be a late in as apparently wasnt on the flight up to the gold coast.

    TommyC99 · 24/05/2019 at 18:47

    I heard Geelong have sent emergencies up away with the main group a few times last year. I dont expect him to play either but ya never know

SamuraiPizzaCat · 24/05/2019 at 18:41

Trades done.. covered all on field positions but not one bloke on my bench is playing. 4 injuries and 4 selected as emergencies on bench.

    Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 19:04

    Good luck this week then PizzaCat…hope there's no late outs for ya.
    I'm lucky enough to have cover on every line but am having to field 6 rookies so it'll be an average score week.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/05/2019 at 19:11

      Ahh bye week scores 🙊

      With setters out no choice gotta trade to avoid a 🍩

      SamuraiPizzaCat · 24/05/2019 at 19:12

      Thanks Rusty, I'm going to need some luck, good luck to you too. I have 9 rookies on field, definitely not expecting a good score this round!

      hedski · 24/05/2019 at 19:23

      7 rookies on for me Russty.
      ROB and Drew out, Young and Fyfe in.
      Danger, Williams and Crouch on the bench.
      I can loop Durrsma with Answorth and Petrol with Parker/Young.
      Not ideal but what can ya do?

    Saritz · 24/05/2019 at 19:34

    Same. A full team on-field but now bench options this week. I just calculated how much value I have on my bench… $2,904,500!!! Im still projected to get 2220. If I hit 2200+ this week i'll be very happy

    redherringfc · 24/05/2019 at 19:45


    At least I don’t have Parker or Burgess.

    (hope you don’t either)

Bubz · 24/05/2019 at 18:43

I have Williams, Danger and M. Crouch all out this week, and I’m playing for ranking. Is it the right thing to hold onto all of those three even though I’m trying to get a high rank?
I’ve currently gone Moore and Duursma to Lloyd and Young via Burgess… are those trades good? I can field 22 this week, 13 of those being premiums and one is Libba.

    Derek · 24/05/2019 at 20:28

    Lloyd is a gun and a must have.

    Danger and Crouch will be back next week.

    If there is bad news about Williams, meaning he misses more than 2, he can go

MikeLowrey · 24/05/2019 at 18:59

A – Bring in Boak, offload Gibbons
B – Bring in Heeney, offload Hayes early

    Hazey · 24/05/2019 at 19:24


John · 24/05/2019 at 19:06

Going Parker to Young and Drew to Boak. Thoughts?

    hedski · 24/05/2019 at 19:24

    Yep 👍

    Hazey · 24/05/2019 at 19:26

    I went; Gibbons, Drew OUT
    Whitfield, Young IN

    Whitfield could go mental in the games up to his bye!

KSinny · 24/05/2019 at 19:13

Lloyd or Whitfield this week? And why?

    cash_cows · 24/05/2019 at 19:21

    Whitfield because no Williams.

      Hazey · 24/05/2019 at 19:26

      And likely to go ballistic until his bye

      Sharkmove_King · 25/05/2019 at 07:41

      Whitfield. Although I don't think Williams being out is good for him. Williams didn't play H&A last year and Whitfield made All Australian halfback but only averaged 100. Williams plays the 2 finals and Whitfield smashes 2x130s.

Saritz · 24/05/2019 at 19:26

Is it just me, or is there very little articles/info around in the supercoachsphere about the addition of the mid-season draft this year? It is the catalyst for a huge injection of rookies to help us navigate the byes more easily than ever before. All I keep reading about is "where are the rookies". In 2-3 rounds we may have a candy store full of sweet cash cow goodies to choose from.

I guess with all the carnage this round some may need to go early on a rookie too cover a donut. But if you can avoid it, I would recommend holding trades this week as we will have a greater incentive than ever before to use all 9 trades over the three bye rounds.

Because of the mid-season draft and the assumed injection of rookie options to cover holes, I actually dont fear the byes at all. Are you guys feeling similarly?

    Jace · 24/05/2019 at 19:30

    My question is will Champion Data put these mid-season draft rookies into Supercoach at all?

      Saritz · 24/05/2019 at 19:36

      Of course! That would be just cruel if they didnt.

        Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 19:47

        I wouldn't count on it Saritz, not much flexibility in SC, Marshall should've been made a DPP Ruck but they refuse to do it.
        I agree about trades, and am hoping not to trade this week only cause I can, many have to.
        At the moment I can almost get 18 or more on field in all 3 bye rounds so not keen to change much.

    Jacko · 24/05/2019 at 19:47

    Saritz, I think your being a little naive here, the mid season draft isn necessarily going to bring in 'ready made talent' to blood as soon as recruited. It will be exploited and used as picking up players before the AFL draft in November and AFL clubs will then be able to develop the talent within the AFL club.

    Would find it rare that some bloke gets picked up from WAFL, VFL, SANFL etc. and jump ahead of players already on an AFL list, these players may prove to be good, but might need some development time and also be behind those already at the club they are drafted to.

    KeenButClueless · 24/05/2019 at 19:48

    I am not confident they get an early run. They are probably not AFL ready, don’t know the team plans and structures. Hopefully wrong, but just the way I am seeing it at the moment

    Saritz · 24/05/2019 at 22:55

    I agree with points being raised here. But if thats the case, then the mid-season draft is basically a sham then. I would argue if less than 50% of those selected dont get at least a game, then it should be scrapped

      Sharkmove_King · 25/05/2019 at 07:38

      I do agree with Saritz. The whole point of a mid season draft was so teams could fill holes created by injuries on their list with ready to go players. If teams start adding potential/development players it should be scrapped.

        Saritz · 25/05/2019 at 10:41

        Yep. Otherwise it’s just an easy grab for teams to take advantage get some late blooming talent and stockpile a player (or two) that may have been a 2nd round pick in the PSD. Maybe there has to be a rule that players picked up in the mid season draft have to play at least 2 games (barring injuries)?

    Beezneez · 26/05/2019 at 10:05

    On the other side of the coin. IMO the mid season draft is just so wrong in that it has the potential to greatly disadvantage the clubs who lose a player. The player may have been playing at, say, state league level for half a year and the club then loses a player who, most probably, is one of their better players who may not even get a game in the AFL.

      Saritz · 26/05/2019 at 10:46

      Yep, it compromises the integrity of the reserve competitions for sure. Essentially, a player (assuming they don’t play AFL) could swap clubs mid season and make that new club better and their old club far worse off. All the more reason an AFL mid-season needs to ensure traded in players play a minimum number of AFL games. It will be interesting to see how it plays out and what fallout might occur.

Gibbs · 24/05/2019 at 19:31

Who should I trade out to get in Young ( going early due to half my team being out) Constable or Setterfield?

    cash_cows · 24/05/2019 at 19:39

    Constable. Get that $$
    Clearly the coach doesn't think he's best 22.
    Setters can always find his way back in to underperforming blues + DPP.

    Saritz · 24/05/2019 at 19:39

    I traded out Constable. With Danger back next week I just dont see him getting back in. Whereas if Setters has a good weeks in the magoos, he'll be straight back in

Lazza · 24/05/2019 at 19:53

Hahaa, I have 9 rookies on field .. including poopster Parker.. be lucky to crack 2000 this week..

    Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 20:07

    Parker could have one of those weeks where he doesn't fall asleep after the 1st quarter, and maybe kicks a couple of snags, we can only dream…lol

      Loop · 25/05/2019 at 05:32

      A couple of goals and no free kicks against would do it.

redherringfc · 24/05/2019 at 19:54

Oops, thought I’d see what Cameron looked like in my team.

He looks good, but a break even of 159.

Its now 7:52. I think we know how this story ends

    redherringfc · 24/05/2019 at 19:55

    I’ll feel better if someone tells me 12 goals.

      Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 20:01

      Oops…lol, well he did all right last week mate considering he has a dodgy Shoulder, 3 out of the last 4 weeks he's scored well, might lose some dosh though, good luck, he's yours now.

      redherringfc · 24/05/2019 at 20:10

      On the flip side, I was caught with Wills as well, 22 points midway through the 1st.

        Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 20:16

        Hope he keeps his spot, looks like a bit of a dasher.

Lazza · 24/05/2019 at 19:58

Don’t want to put the wind up people, but are there any late out candidates?

    Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 20:08

    Don't think so Lazza but you never know in this bloody fun game!

Fearthebeard · 24/05/2019 at 20:10

Field Atkins or stocker lads?!?!

    Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 20:16

    Hey Beard, if you can't loophole them I always go for the guy with the higher average.

Derek · 24/05/2019 at 20:36

I don’t know why I just didn’t do what I’ve done every year and just start with Pendlebury and JPK

    Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 20:40

    Feel the same about Grundy…hurting my scores every week.

Derek · 24/05/2019 at 21:04

Heeney 61% TOG in first half.

Thought with Buddy back Heeney would get more midfield time, but he just gets more bench time

    KSinny · 24/05/2019 at 21:07


    dontblushbaby · 24/05/2019 at 21:53

    Yeah n Mills, same tog and racked up 98 , go figure ?

      Derek · 24/05/2019 at 22:02

      Ball been in defence alot

    Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 22:12

    Must still be injured, and playing like a SPUD…did well last week and now turns in this rubbish, frustrating.

      Derek · 24/05/2019 at 22:48

      He only got more midfield in second half because both Hewett and JPK were out.

        Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 22:51

        And still turns in a mediocre score, I'm over him I think.

Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 21:36

Sydney would probably be in front if Buddy could remember how to play Football.

Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 21:48

One of my opponents in AFL Fantasy has Sidey as Captain tonight…and I have Grundy lol

hedski · 24/05/2019 at 22:00

Anyone not VC Grundy?
129 at 3/4 time, killing it.

    cash_cows · 24/05/2019 at 22:05

    Yeah me.
    Decided on macrae for vc. Mild regrets

    Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 22:37

    Who needs scores of 170+ when you could have Goldy averaging 99 instead?…
    Think I'm over the suffering now, changes coming soon.

      gator59 · 24/05/2019 at 22:44

      Don't think Russty, Do

        Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 22:49

        I knew ROB would be good for something Gator!

          gator59 · 24/05/2019 at 22:52

          Good stuff mate ,, You gotta get him in some how

      SoYeahLike · 24/05/2019 at 23:19

      ooops sorry mate.
      I meant to tell you to shut that gate about 8-weeks ago

SoYeahLike · 24/05/2019 at 22:02

I bought Lloyd in this week partly because of all the talk about his cheap points. 3/4 time he's on 61 from 13 kicks, 10 handballs and 3 marks @ 82% that's like mimimum score per stat = not cheap points

    cash_cows · 24/05/2019 at 22:28

    what about now?

      Derek · 24/05/2019 at 22:41

      He does this every week, huge last quarters

COREYSC · 24/05/2019 at 22:11

Can grundy score 160+ I need every last point to save my season!

    silversovereign · 25/05/2019 at 09:09

    Yes, yes he can!

Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 22:33

Rampe must be a bit thick, jeez he does some silly things.

Rocksta_ · 24/05/2019 at 22:36

Hands up if you don’t have Grundy, or even worse, don’t have the VC on him?
Bad Luck, and or stupidity

    Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 22:38

    Yep, I'm one of the dumbasses…never again.

      Rocksta_ · 24/05/2019 at 22:40

      Class is class

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/05/2019 at 22:43

        Hey that's my line … 😉

          Derek · 24/05/2019 at 22:45

          Pay the Price

      SoYeahLike · 24/05/2019 at 22:43


    Derek · 24/05/2019 at 22:43

    What’s the chances that in Draft, 3 out of 3 of my opponents have Grundy, with the C on him

      Russty_ · 24/05/2019 at 22:44

      That'll teach ya for having Neale.

        Derek · 24/05/2019 at 23:31

        I have JPK and Buddy in all my teams. This week is dead.

      hedski · 24/05/2019 at 23:08

      TightGoldenTrunks <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="👍" src=""&gt;
      I have Trigga in the JR Legends, he has Grundy C, I've gone a sneaky Tomahawk.

    Maverick_ · 24/05/2019 at 23:14

    I’m running the Gawn/ROB combo. And it sucks!!
    All trades are on hold & there’s a freeze on my bank account til the stars align and I can get grundy ASAP

      Marty McFly · 25/05/2019 at 08:51

      Dont worry, i just checked and Grundy gets injured next week

Steeeve · 24/05/2019 at 22:43

I haven't gone early but jeez I'm hoping for a ton on, ahem, debut-ly

Derek · 24/05/2019 at 22:44

Did Lloyd and Mills change bodies at 3/4 time?

Shake_n_bake · 24/05/2019 at 22:45

Lloyd 24 touches till half time 41pts 11 in the last half 71pts.

    Tiger · 24/05/2019 at 22:52

    The scoring a joke

gator59 · 24/05/2019 at 22:50

I'm not missing out on Grundy's VC score this week.. Missed out last week due to being out all day and missing all of last Saturdays grundy score

TOPHAWK1 · 24/05/2019 at 22:54

Lock in the Grundy VC guys and gals. BANG. Traded in Lloyd tonight. Who else did? BOOM! More SC points!!

    hedski · 24/05/2019 at 23:10

    Locking in Grundy Toppa.
    Traded in Fyfe/Lyfe.

      gator59 · 24/05/2019 at 23:11

      I got Lloyd in this week Toppa

        TOPHAWK1 · 25/05/2019 at 10:17

        Aint it grand Gator! I love it when you bring someone in and goes 115 SC in their first game. Lloyd is a bloody gun. Very happy.

      TOPHAWK1 · 25/05/2019 at 10:08

      Bloody oath Hedski. Lock away that 165. Fyfe is a must have. He is a beast. Hopefully he puts on a clinic tomorrow to show Neale who is top dog.

    TBone_9 · 24/05/2019 at 23:14

    Yep I VC’d Grundy and brought Lloyd in via some DPP for ROB mate. Tick tick so far! You make one or two trades Hawk?

      TOPHAWK1 · 25/05/2019 at 10:12

      Brilliant Tbone. I made two trades. Kept Williams, and M Crouch. Decided to to cull maxed rooks instead of punting injured premos. Parker out for Young (Bit of a punt) and Walsh out for Lloyd. Bloody pleased. When the premos come back it will really set things up. I VC'd Grundy too. Just banked that 330 SC. No stress now. Can chill and enjoy the rest of the round. (I hope…hehehe)

    Derek · 24/05/2019 at 23:19

    That’s more like it Grundy

    Think I’ll lock that VC score in.

    Had the VC on him the last 2 weeks but didn’t take his 141 or 144. Very happy with this week.

    Derek · 24/05/2019 at 23:27

    8 out of 10 opponents this week have Lloyd, I was pretty happy at 3/4 time.

    I haven’t been able to get him because I have too many r13 bye players

    silversovereign · 25/05/2019 at 09:07

    Brought in Whitfield this week. I think he finished D1 without a doubt.

      TOPHAWK1 · 25/05/2019 at 10:16

      Cant go wrong with that mate. I still need to get him in. Whitfield was a slightly lower priority this week as I have to see how the Williams injury plays out. If he is cooked (Should know a fair bit next week) then Whitfield comes into play as a straight switch.

    Beezneez · 25/05/2019 at 11:28

    Tossed up between Lloyd and Macrae. Went Macrae. Lloyd next week hopefully. Preferring Hurn but Lloyd's price more appealing. Playing opponents who didn't vc Grundy.

      TOPHAWK1 · 25/05/2019 at 11:41

      Either pick is a winner mate. Lloyd will be the same price next week (+$1K) but a lower BE. Grab him then mate. JMac will kill it mate.

    TommyC99 · 25/05/2019 at 16:39

    I traded Whitfield in instead. Would have loved Lloyd but can't afford another round 13 bye player. Wouldn't be surprised if Whitfield doesn't go nuts tomorrow but wasn't really interested in much else this, and i culled 2 fat rookies to get him in so didn't sideways trade.

Maverick_ · 24/05/2019 at 23:07

Brayshaw -> macrae was my plan before Tomorrow
It’s now hold off for ROB -> grundy ASAP
His bye cannot wait

    gator59 · 24/05/2019 at 23:12

    Good thinking Mav

    Derek · 25/05/2019 at 00:57

    He plays against Lobb next week

    Before the heavy weight battle against Gawn round 12.

    Maverick_ · 25/05/2019 at 09:12

    AB->macrae is still mighty tempting today. Grundy won’t price rise a lot macrae will and can match grundys scoring power

Sam_01 · 24/05/2019 at 23:12

Forgot to put Grundy as vc 🙁 macrae and crippa better put on a show

    redherringfc · 25/05/2019 at 08:53

    I chose not to, every opponent (bar someone who’s given up on their season) has him as vc.

    Another great call from me.

Swans2012 · 24/05/2019 at 23:31

And to think I’ve held buddy for 4 weeks…..

    Derek · 24/05/2019 at 23:40

    Maybe some cognitive bias?

    To think players like Buddy, RGray, the Chad and Gunston will all be under $390k coming off their byes.

      Swans2012 · 25/05/2019 at 09:51

      Yeah a little, although if you just look at the numbers 6 weeks ago, this was a guy who’s averaged 90-100 for the last 5 years for 440k. If he hadn’t been injured I’m confident he wouldn’t have been a bad pickup, anyway gotta live with it now! I might bring in one of those you mention above to fill f6/7 with him over the coming weeks, or maybe even a bottomed out heeney

    Pman · 25/05/2019 at 12:23

    Sadly Buddy has been SC irrelevant for at least the last 3 years now. Dump him.

      Swans2012 · 25/05/2019 at 12:36

      I think your confused p man, averaged 100 last year and 98 in 2017, even his 94 in 2016 had him in the conversation as top 6 forward. Whether or not he’ll be relevant this year we’ll see, but at worst he’ll be a handy f7

        Pman · 25/05/2019 at 13:12

        I definitely stand corrected, didn't realise he'd averaged that well in last 2 years.

Rocksta_ · 25/05/2019 at 00:15

I thought M Crouch had done me a dis-service……..but low and behold, he is now my teams Captain this week!

    silversovereign · 25/05/2019 at 09:06

    I’ve got plenty of loophole captains to choose from. You’re doing alright if you needed crouch to miss to use the c loophole 😉

nankthetank · 25/05/2019 at 02:50

What do we think of chucking the C on Whitfield if VC macrae doesn't work? Any chance that Melbourne will lock him down?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 25/05/2019 at 08:12

    I reckon harmed will head to Kelly or cogs.

    Whitfield should be a pretty safe bet.

    TOPHAWK1 · 25/05/2019 at 11:45

    I think Whitfield was tagged by the Dees in this game last year and only scored 61SC. I think he will cop serious attention again mate. Maybe go Fyfe or Neale captain if you have one of those guys?

manolaki · 25/05/2019 at 03:01

Hello community would love some advice on my team and potential plans please.
Def: Whitfield Laird Lloyd B Smith Rozee Hore (Duursma Answerth)
Mid: Cripps Oliver Fyfe Martin Libba Walsh Constable Stack (Stocker J Ross B Scott)
Ruc: Grundy Gawn (O'Brien)
Fwd: Danger Heeney Boak Worpel Kelly Baker (Parker Setterfield)

Original plan was Parker to Young and Libba to Macrae.
Since teams were named I am not sure what to do.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

    silversovereign · 25/05/2019 at 07:17

    Jeez mate. Can we swap teams? You could switch Answerth into the guts for Constable and then bring in marsh. You could then upgrade any of
    Libba, baker, setters, or Parker.

      manolaki · 25/05/2019 at 09:32

      Thanks for that. Didn't think of Marsh.

      What's job security like?

      Also don't like any other forward yet. Daniel and Dunkley I don't trust yet and Mundy is too expensive at the moment.

      I think I'm a bit short in the middle

        silversovereign · 25/05/2019 at 09:39

        Js is probably a little shaky although Webster is out for a few weeks with a broken hand which helps. The alternative is to hold of on trades this week.

Dash · 25/05/2019 at 09:25

1. Collins > Marsh & Duursma > Hinge
2. Collins > Marsh & Parker > Young
3. Collins > Hinge & Duursma > Houli
4. Walsh > Dusty & Parker > Young. Think I should hold onto Walsh.

I've also got Atkins and Gibbons I can trade but they're playing.
Or do I just get rid of Collins this week, use 1 trade.

s c tragic · 25/05/2019 at 09:50

Well my POD trade this week was "drumroll" Sidebottom, working beautifully.

    Saritz · 25/05/2019 at 10:08

    Bad luck mate. I was seriously looking at him too.

      Jace · 25/05/2019 at 11:10

      I might look at him as a fallen premium in a few weeks maybe?

Pman · 25/05/2019 at 12:20

Had Rupert Wills on the Bench with the Emergency last night and he scored 66, do I take that score or roll the dice on the perennially low scoring Gibbons or Stocker with the hope they can go past 66? With all my outs this week I am expecting a really rubbish score so are scrounging for every point possible!

    hedski · 25/05/2019 at 12:54

    I'd take that Pman.
    I have to field both Gibbons and Stocker, not looking forward to it.

      Pman · 25/05/2019 at 13:14

      I think it's probably the safe thing to do. It really is a shaping up to be a horrible round, I reckon 2100 – 2200 will be a good score.

    silversovereign · 25/05/2019 at 13:47

    I did the same pman and I’m taking it.

Locked and Loaded · 25/05/2019 at 12:43

Stewart or Sicily?

Byes don’t matter don’t care about BE

    Pman · 25/05/2019 at 13:15

    Stewart for me as better POD and Flognuts Sicily will probably do something stupid at some stage and get himself rubbed out.

hedski · 25/05/2019 at 12:53

Mitch Lewis a late out for the hawks, I hope no-one is relying on him for cover.

Dash · 25/05/2019 at 13:14

Best rookie downgrade for Collins > Marsh or Hinge?
Any others?

Sharkmove_King · 25/05/2019 at 13:28

Brad Scott parting with Kangas is great news for Bailey Scott or any other rookie anyone has. Surely a new coach will play the kids and won't mind finishing low for draft picks

    silversovereign · 25/05/2019 at 13:40

    Not if it is a caretaker coach trying to prove his worth.

    Pman · 25/05/2019 at 13:51

    I hope so as I've had Bailey Scott collecting dust on my bench for a long time now and he still has coin to make.

Swans2012 · 25/05/2019 at 14:46

Goldstein 16 ho and 11 disposals in the first quarter has to be some kind of record

    Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 15:20

    Hope he can back it up in the 2nd half, need to make up some 'not having grundy' points 🙂

      Lazza · 25/05/2019 at 17:30

      Ditto… and very happy with his 140 at his price tag… will be upgraded to Grundy after his bye

Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 15:41

Glad I hung onto Duursma a bit longer, he's killing it today.

    G.C. · 25/05/2019 at 15:53

    I chose to trade out Duursma instead of Scrimshaw this week. Now Scrimshaw's cooked and Duursma is flying, classic. Have to try and not let those kind of things get you too down, but jeez it never feels good 🙁

      Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 15:55

      That's just terrible luck G.C, Scrimshaw was going pretty well too.

Derek · 25/05/2019 at 15:58

Rocky and Scrimshaw done for day. Sigh.

Bringing Gunston in is being rewarded though. Go Hawks

    Derek · 25/05/2019 at 16:19

    Scrimshaw has had some fantastic first halves this year.

    Do I take his 50 or put Answerth on field.

TelescopicCox · 25/05/2019 at 15:59

Rocky done for the day with a hammy. FMSC

    Rocksta_ · 25/05/2019 at 16:02

    I don’t know why I traded him in a few weeks ago. His body cannot be trusted.

      TelescopicCox · 25/05/2019 at 16:06

      I did the same thing. I knew I’d be tight for cash so I went the budget option. Looks like he’ll need to be traded.

        Derek · 25/05/2019 at 16:15

        Frustrating because I want him for r13

          TelescopicCox · 25/05/2019 at 16:28

          Hopefully it’s just some tightness, but I think it’s doubtful

            dontblushbaby · 25/05/2019 at 16:55

            At least he made his BE and won’t lose cash

        Pman · 25/05/2019 at 17:18

        I brought him in Rd 3 knowing full well the risks that came with it and IMO he's done OK to average a solid 100 and make circa $80K. Depending on how bad his hammy is I'm thinking straight swap for Caleb Daniel which gives me a DPP in Mids which will be handy leading into the BYES.

Dash · 25/05/2019 at 16:04

Collins to Marsh or Hinge?

silversovereign · 25/05/2019 at 16:19

Guess who put the emergency on dursma but stuffed up the loophole 🖐 #fml

    Derek · 25/05/2019 at 17:55

    How? We have so many loophole options this week

      silversovereign · 25/05/2019 at 21:27

      Rookie error. Moore played first game.

    silversovereign · 26/05/2019 at 12:25

    Clark saved the day. Only a 25 point loss in the end.

TommyC99 · 25/05/2019 at 16:29

Field answerth of Stocker?

    Derek · 25/05/2019 at 16:42

    Toss a coin

    I need 2 out of Stocker, Parker or young?

    Swans2012 · 25/05/2019 at 16:55

    I’m thinking stocker has at least been getting the ball

      TommyC99 · 25/05/2019 at 17:09

      At the same time, Answerth plays the role he only needs a few touches with some intercept marks thrown in. I have stocker on field atm but answerth has shown he can go 60+

JEL · 25/05/2019 at 16:29

Apologies to all Boak owners, I brought him into my team this week.

    Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 19:13

    Maybe gone back to the old inconsistent Boak?…might not have to get him in after all.

      silversovereign · 26/05/2019 at 12:24

      I’ll be bringing him round 13 cheap as chips 😃

Maverick_ · 25/05/2019 at 17:59

I had a decision to make this morning.
Trade duursma out for young build a bank for ROB too grundy. And lose my fwd/def while at it
Or go ABray up to macrae and break the bank..
I went with macrae and I’m happy after duursma tonned up and ROB on 70 at HT. I’ll just have to look at grundy post bye now he isn’t going to get dramatically out of reach where macrae was value. Now I need TKelly to rip gold coast apart as my Captain. Hope everyone has had a solid start to R10

    Sam_01 · 25/05/2019 at 18:39

    Not going with crippa as captain mav? Surely big response after last week

      Maverick_ · 25/05/2019 at 18:58

      GCS leak the most midfield points of any team in the Comp and by a mile too. I think I’ll back in TKelly with no danger tonight. I need to take a few risks my seasons cooked. But Cripps isn’t a bad choice at all just looking for a POD mate.

        Sam_01 · 25/05/2019 at 19:11

        Ahhh very true MAV I think I’ll just back in crippa safe bet surely

    Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 19:07

    Pretty good call there Mav in hindsight, I was spewing about not having Grundy too, but Goldy's score lessened the pain a bit.

      Maverick_ · 25/05/2019 at 19:28

      yeah goldy did well russty and we have a nankless tiges next week so should go well again..
      ROB with a 93 after being on 70 at HT that really hurts

        Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 19:40

        Not bad for a rookie score though least he ain't losing us any cash this week, will just tip over the 400k mark, ripe for the slaughter next week.

Corey · 25/05/2019 at 18:33

Whitfield better score more then 106 because I upgraded Duursma to Whitfield😤

    Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 20:04

    I think you'll find that trade will work out in the long run.

Ned_Starkers · 25/05/2019 at 18:38

Coniglio or Stack on field? Taking libba’s score so can move cogs on.

Holty01 · 25/05/2019 at 18:56

Community forgive it. Committed the ultimate sc sin. Struggling to field 22 this week with plenty of unwanted rookies onfield.
So went double sideways trade. 🤭

    Maverick_ · 25/05/2019 at 19:00

    when your at top like yourself Holty sometimes you have to make a few left field moves it may very well pay off hugely . What trades did you make?

      Sam_01 · 25/05/2019 at 19:09

      I also made a cardinal sin, traded in Toby Greene went against the community’s advice and locked him in

      Holty01 · 25/05/2019 at 19:17

      I went Williams to Lloyd and Crouch to Marshall.
      The Crouch to Marshall trade is the big worry but the other option was Duursma to a rookie early. Duursma’s Ton today has made me feel a bit better.

        Derek · 25/05/2019 at 20:42

        Don’t mind the Williams to Lloyd, as long as the byes are ok.

        Crouch is a top 8,

        Marshall’s numbers have been very good and if he doesn’t get tired I can’t see them dropping off.

        Hopefully they give you some points

          Holty01 · 25/05/2019 at 21:48

          I tend to agree on Crouch Derek. Problem is with both Crouch boys is once injured they seem to take an eternity to get back to full fitness. He could well be back next week but did not want to have to field a Stocker or Answerth. Plus I have my eyes on some Rd12 mids I might bring in Rd13.

            Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 21:53

            Matt Crouch only seems to do very well in the back half of seasons Holty…last few years or so.

              Holty01 · 25/05/2019 at 22:14

              Yes. I might have to pick him back up after his bye. Although not something I really want to do. But his last score will make his price drop a bit in his next 2 games

        Swans2012 · 25/05/2019 at 21:08

        I think Williams to lloyd is a genuine upgrade (that’s what I told myself) and crouch to Marshall is well I guess we’ll see. He hasn’t disappointed me so far! So good moves I reckon holt!!

    Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 19:12

    We all do em at times 'The Holt'…:), I've done a few this year too, Degoey and Brayshaw were my 2, anything goes mate as long as it benefits your team.

    Rocksta_ · 25/05/2019 at 19:34

    If I was ranked 26th overall I would have done the exact same thing Holty. You need to throw everything at it, so don’t stress, you’ve done the right thing.

    Shake_n_bake · 25/05/2019 at 20:10

    I did a double side ways trade aswell!! Crouch to Sloane Danger to Dunkley. 🤦‍♂️

      Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 20:17

      That worked out all right this week Shake…very sideways though.

        Shake_n_bake · 25/05/2019 at 20:28

        Worked alright this week!! Have enough cash to go setterfield or Parker back to Danger next week if l decide to do that. Unfortunately had to make a trade in the fwd line or else would have copped a 🍩

          Derek · 25/05/2019 at 20:45

          I was same, had to make a forward line trade otherwise have Parker on field.

          Thought about it a lot and went with Boak. Oh well. Got him now. At least Gunston did good.

            Shake_n_bake · 25/05/2019 at 20:53

            Had Danger Setters and Bines fwd so I’m still playing Parker.

    Derek · 25/05/2019 at 20:52

    I’m against you in A Graders. You must be happy with Baker at half time. Even Corbet outscoring Merrett.

    silversovereign · 25/05/2019 at 21:29

    Will struggle to crack 2000 this week even with 370 from Grundy.

dontblushbaby · 25/05/2019 at 20:43

Christopher Burgess would be the most useless contributor to SC since Zack Dawson , might even be the worst of all time

    Maverick_ · 25/05/2019 at 20:57

    makes dac zawson look like an absolute star DBB.
    burgess is a potato

    Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 20:58

    Hopefully you don't have him at all, at the very least on your bench…not covering for anyone …lol
    He'll be back to flipping Burgers next month.

      Maverick_ · 25/05/2019 at 20:59

      i have him onfield haha Mitch Lewis was a late out :'(

        Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 21:00

        Bummer dude, my condolences.

    Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 21:05

    Zack contributed significantly in the Saint's 2 Grand Final losses in the early 2010's…towards them losing both.

    hedski · 25/05/2019 at 21:06

    I'm sure Derek will pop up soon to say that Dawson tonned up once <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="👍" src=""><img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😉" src=""&gt;

    Derek · 25/05/2019 at 22:09

    29th May 2009, Zac Dawson scored 105 SC points. Coming up to the 10 year anniversary of that great event.

      Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 22:15


      hedski · 25/05/2019 at 22:38


    Beezneez · 25/05/2019 at 23:21

    Im playing you don'tblush and put Burgess on field ahead of Parker. Unfortunately Danger would have been a loop if not playing in the same game. Not much of a choice though methinks.

Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 21:11

What are the Cats doing?….time to bury these spuds in the ground, and improve their percentage for the year.
P.S, let's go Stewart!…need a ton mate.

    Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 21:17

    At least we won't have to get them confused anymore, no sacking so he keeps his contract money, and North will continue to do crap under their next Coach lol, almost as bad as the Saints for recruiting.

      Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 21:46

      Bloody hope not mate!…that'd be going bad to worse.

    COREYSC · 25/05/2019 at 22:07

    Never in doubt mate job done, Go Cattas!

      Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 22:18

      They took their time Corey, but buried em in the end 🙂

Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 22:05

Gazza's a great player, but might be getting angry with other player's bodies, because his bodie's getting old and tired.
He can't seem to stop hitting people these days, could be in trouble this week, but if he gets off again, he could be totally immune to punishment lol

    COREYSC · 25/05/2019 at 22:08

    yeah i agree mate hes in the heat of it and has been a little undisciplined at times hopefully he doesn't get rubbed out but he keeps putting his name up there to be suspended

    Holty01 · 25/05/2019 at 22:09

    Has to go this time. If he gets off the AFL becomes a laughing stock

      Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 22:14

      He's certainly skating on the edge mate, Christian could look weak and or biased if he doesn't do something this week.

    NoLanguage96 · 26/05/2019 at 04:57

    Has to go for that

Ken · 25/05/2019 at 22:15

Who would you captain after a VC fail with Macrae … Should I put the C on Neale or Cripps?

KSinny · 25/05/2019 at 22:16

I ❤ Noah Balta

    Ken · 25/05/2019 at 22:34

    Haha same.. was really thinking of selling him off but had other priorities…blessing in disguise

    Russty_ · 25/05/2019 at 22:42

    He's probably part of the future of the club, Tigers will need 2 good tall forwards going fwd and Lynch will be one of them, Jack will retire in a few years.
    Balta's getting valuable experience now and is starting to deal with AFL pace, and is improving rapidly, good to see 🙂

Derek · 25/05/2019 at 22:56

Seems like there are going to be some fairly good scores this week.

Thought I was going ok and projected around 2320, but that might only win me 5/10 leagues this week.

Sunday always scares me, but this week will be bad.

Stocker, Lockhart, Hore, Answerth & Parker all on field. I hope I have same rookie luck as Holty.

    Derek · 25/05/2019 at 22:57

    I can take Scrimshaw’s 51. He was going well today.

    And choose between Parker or Young?

    Holty01 · 25/05/2019 at 23:17

    I hope not, I’m playing you in our cash league. Lol
    But seriously after last week, I think we all deserve a bit of luck with our rookies.
    Plus I have a strong feeling Answerth will do well tomorrow.

      Derek · 26/05/2019 at 00:56

      I’ve already had Durrsma do good

      I held Libba and he did good

      Gunston joined the Bunnies and did good

      So already had a few do-gooders

      Hope Oliver doesn’t get the de boer curse

    TOPHAWK1 · 26/05/2019 at 10:17

    Wouldnt we all want a bit of Holty's luck right now mate. I have Hore and Young on the field only today. Projected to go 2294 but with J Kelly, Fyfe, Cripps, Mundy, Coniglio, and Billings to come today as well, I am hoping to hit 2350. (1479 now)

    Good luck today Derek. Let the rookie force be with you!!

      Derek · 26/05/2019 at 11:49

      Would you field Young ahead of Parker? Or doesn’t it matter.

      Where does Young play?

        TOPHAWK1 · 26/05/2019 at 12:18

        Its an easy one for me Derek. I traded out Parker this week after his ridiculously high BE of 90 and was also starting to bleed serious cash. Traded in Young in his place so he will be on the field today. Young has been named on the half forward line/wing so he might get a bit of the footy today. If I had both, Id still field Young over Parker anyway. Gresham named in the forward pocket. Hope that helps mate. TH

        Shake_n_bake · 26/05/2019 at 12:40

        Watched Saints up close last week against my pies. Parker goes missing for long periods Young had a slow start but did warm into the game as it went on

Ken · 25/05/2019 at 23:36

Sloane has posted 8 tons out of 10..but he does have de Boer in two weeks…

NoLanguage96 · 26/05/2019 at 05:05

Atkins! Duursma! Libba! Baker!

    Maverick_ · 26/05/2019 at 09:32

    & watch brayshaw ton up today also.
    went AB to macrae this week

cash_cows · 26/05/2019 at 10:18

11 played, sitting on 1225. Gawn C.
Looking decent so far, all things considered.
Held Couch, Danger and Williams.

Cliffy · 26/05/2019 at 11:45

Doesn't get any tougher than this, but have to choose a combination of these three guys (Gibbons, Answerth, Stocker) to play on field, what do we reckon for today?

I have to play two out of these three, decisions, decisions…

    Derek · 26/05/2019 at 12:06

    Have a look at your opponents.

    I have to choose between Young and Parker. 6 of my opponents have Young on field and 1 has Parker.

    I’ll go with the crowd on that one, don’t feel lucky about bucking the group think.

    silversovereign · 26/05/2019 at 12:19

    I’d go Answerth and stocker

    TOPHAWK1 · 26/05/2019 at 12:22

    I would go Gibbons and Answerth. Gibbons has tonned up once already so he is capable of producing a decent score. Answerth will be busy against Freo today. Should see a bit of the ball. Stocker is still totally unproven IMO. Good luck mate!

      Cliffy · 26/05/2019 at 12:31

      Cheers TopHawk and everyone! Really a flip of the coin in the end haha!

AuroraBorealis?! · 26/05/2019 at 12:06

Seems like everyone is having a good week but me, slid from 2k to 8.5k after last round, looks like its more of the same :/

    Derek · 26/05/2019 at 12:11

    Wait until Sunday is over before you say anything.

    There are still plenty of the big boys to play today.

    Will De Boer get hold of Olivet? Will Melb rag Whitfield like last time they played, Will Mummy crunch Maxy? How with Neale go against his old team and all the rookies who are on our field.

    Plenty of reasons to watch from behind the couch.

    Lazza · 26/05/2019 at 13:43

    I’ll be happy to break 2000 with 9 on field rookies AB … I have a slight chance of winning one of my cash leagues … but will need Fyfe to go ridiculously mega-big..

      AuroraBorealis?! · 26/05/2019 at 14:54

      I also wouldn't mind it if he went mega-big Lazza

    Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 15:13

    Not now AB with LockFART's dog poop and Oliver being tagged into oblivion…never again Lockhart on the field.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 26/05/2019 at 15:21

      Put him ahead of Answerth this week Russty, watch him ton up

Dash · 26/05/2019 at 12:18

Is Parker to Young really worth a trade this week? Parker peaked at 254K. Probably lose more cash today.
Just not sure if I can wait another week on Young and rookies on their bubble? Thoughts?

    TOPHAWK1 · 26/05/2019 at 12:41

    I culled Parker into Young this week. I have a lot of confidence in Young. Happy to go that one week early so I had the cash to upgrade Walsh to Lloyd. (DPP) Its just a matter of whether you want to be aggressive and move your team forward. Good luck in what you decide to do. Cheers, TH

      Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 12:59

      Hey TH, I've held off trading this week but if Young goes well, I'll probably bring him in next week for ROB and cash up, was gonna go Goldy to Grundy too but that can probably wait a bit now.
      Think I need some more big guns in the backline.

Lazza · 26/05/2019 at 12:32

Salem a late out .. replaced by Spargo

    NoLanguage96 · 26/05/2019 at 14:34


Shake_n_bake · 26/05/2019 at 12:41

Were do we stand coming into Sunday’s games?

    Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 13:03

    1212 from 12 here mate, all the 12's!

    hedski · 26/05/2019 at 13:45

    1348 from 11 (Grundy captain).
    Looks good until you realise I have Lockhart, Gibbons, Stocker, Parker and Young as 5 of my remaining 11.
    Might get 200 points out of the five of them if I'm lucky!

      hedski · 26/05/2019 at 14:18

      Might as well add Angus to those 5.
      God he's shitting me.

      Shake_n_bake · 26/05/2019 at 14:20

      I think l play Hedski in one league?

        hedski · 26/05/2019 at 14:36

        Not this round Shake.
        Had you twice last week, it was an easy kill for you.

    Lazza · 26/05/2019 at 13:55

    955 ☹️ with 11 to play – 8 are premos including capt Fyfe.

    BoltonsBlues · 26/05/2019 at 14:10

    1538 with a half from Kelly, Gawn, Lockhart, Hore, Whitfield plus games from Cripps, Walsh, Fyfe, Neale, Witherden, Young to come

    silversovereign · 26/05/2019 at 14:24

    Looking at 2150-2200 after ripping starts from Gawn, Hore and hopper. If cogs and Whitfield lift I could go 22+

    TOPHAWK1 · 26/05/2019 at 14:27

    1673 with a half from J Kelly, Cogs and Hore to come. Then Fyfe, Mundy, Billings, Cripps, and Young to come. VC Grundy score activated.

    Shake_n_bake · 26/05/2019 at 14:31

    Thinking someone might crack 2500

    Holty01 · 26/05/2019 at 14:42

    Gawn, Hore, Cripps, Walsh, Marshall, Neale and Fyfe.

dontblushbaby · 26/05/2019 at 12:50

I didn't have Grundy, first time I didn't have him as VC or C this year and Macrae didn't score that well , can't decide who to put the C on ? currently have Fyfe , but could go Whitfield,Kelly,or Neale ?

    Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 13:02

    I reckon Kelly could go large DBB, Fyfe's been a bit down on scoring, Neale went well last week but could get tagged this week?

    Beezneez · 26/05/2019 at 19:24

    You're currently 2 in front of me in the 3rd quarter of Freo and Brisbane dbb. If only I'd have put Parker on field instead of Young. Could have had you thanks to your Neale spudding it up. Couldn't believe my luck earlier when I saw no vc on Grundy. You picked the right option in Kelly.

Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 13:36

Jeez Hore's had a great start, wish I could say the same about Lockhart, maybe I should've put Burgess on field instead lol

    Shake_n_bake · 26/05/2019 at 14:30

    Had Lockhart up until the bounce in my mids changed to Answorth just hope for a 60+

      Sam_01 · 26/05/2019 at 14:34

      Had the option to loophole burgess score and bank the 40 haha shoulda taken it

BoltonsBlues · 26/05/2019 at 14:08

That peanut Lockhart is doing his best to cost me my cash league!
Jelly, tick
Hore, tick
Gawn, tick
Whitfield, could be better
Lockhart, arrrrrrrr

    Derek · 26/05/2019 at 14:18

    I had chance to take Scrimshaws 51. Have no idea why I didn’t

      Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 14:23

      Lockhart coming off a 3 round average of 70, and he produces 8 points in a half, hope his kick up the ass at half time produces something salvageable in the 2nd!
      Could've fielded Answerth or Burgess instead…dangit.

      BoltonsBlues · 26/05/2019 at 14:24

      I had to swing to many magnets this week, Young, Corbett, Scrimshaw, Lockhart all getting games

AuroraBorealis?! · 26/05/2019 at 14:53

Imagine being 51 points up against a team who's only scored 2 goals in 2 and a half quarters and still tagging the ever loving f*ck out of your opponent. GIVE CLARRY A BREAK. PLEASE

    Derek · 26/05/2019 at 14:56

    Very frustrating. Won’t let him take a step without holding him

    Rocksta_ · 26/05/2019 at 15:06

    de Boer has destroyed Clarry. Just another scalp for the new best tagger in the comp.

    BoltonsBlues · 26/05/2019 at 15:12

    NO!!! Tag him longer, I don’t have him and Kelly outscoring Cogs and Oliver put together has put me in position A1

Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 15:28

Note to self: Get all Melbourne players out of my side except for Gawn and Hore.

Maverick_ · 26/05/2019 at 15:39

To hold Walsh & go Brayshaw to macrae definitely looked the right move To make this week. Can’t believe it took me this long to move his starchy spuddy ass on. Did oliver receive the de boer treatment?

    Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 15:44

    Sure did Mav, Brayshaw's score is actually half decent compared to Oliver's

      Maverick_ · 26/05/2019 at 15:49

      Yeah that’s true russty but atleast I know Oliver’s is from a hard tag by the #1 pest in the league.. what is ABs excuse haha

        Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 15:56

        Saw at one point he elected to go for a weak bump on a player rather than tackle…commentators noticed it too and called him on it.

Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 16:08

Someone needs to Text Robbie Young…"You up?" lol

RealDealNeale · 26/05/2019 at 16:19

Somehow Brayshaw kept surviving in my side due to all the other chaos. Is it almost a hold and hope for the best now? Lost way too much value

    hedski · 26/05/2019 at 16:43

    Same here Real, I have 4 more spots to fill and if he hasn't performed by then he's gone.
    Unfortunately he's a hold for me now as much as it hurts.

    Maverick_ · 26/05/2019 at 17:05

    moved him on this week RDN.
    It was AB or walsh.

Derek · 26/05/2019 at 16:27

Have to be careful what I wish for.

Start of Melb game I thought 350 from the 4 I had would be ok. Gawn, Oliver, Horr & Lockhart.

They scored 350, just not how I would have thought.

Steeeve · 26/05/2019 at 16:27

Robbie Young would have to be the most "went early on him" player in recent memory. And he is playing like the supercoach gods want to send us all a lesson. A donut would have been preferable to having another rookie score almost no points, make no money, and waste away on our benches.

    Derek · 26/05/2019 at 16:35

    6 of my opponents had the same idea as me.

      Steeeve · 26/05/2019 at 17:35

      It's a problem a lot of us will have, and unfortunately it might cost one more trade for those (like me) who could end up with neither bench rookie playing in our forward lines.

    Tommy · 26/05/2019 at 18:36

    He is now my season loophole, he’ll get dropped for sure. Looked lost out there!

    Wondering · 26/05/2019 at 20:37

    Try a donut as well as young and lockhart
    My early rank of top 300 will plummet to 15k this week

    DeadLuckyiGuess · 26/05/2019 at 20:58

    When you're needing to paint the fence and/or avoid a donut a player with a high 60 in his 1st game was better option than?????.
    He'll be ok It's not every year that we get to Butter Hores Rozees straight away followed up by O'Brien Drew Stacks and a late Balta. Stocker started poorly and has got better hinge was poor first up but OK today Answerth good bad good its all normal.

TBone_9 · 26/05/2019 at 16:48

Cmon Billings and Walsh! Need you boys to pick up second half. Feeling very happy at this moment in time to have kept Parker on my bench and not go early on Young. Looking like another Sunday Bloody Sunday…

Derek · 26/05/2019 at 17:43

Parker would have been a great pick on field instead of Young. I hate Sundays

    hedski · 26/05/2019 at 18:03

    I should have taken Petracelle's 39 over Young.
    Looking like I should have fielded Answorth over Lockhart too the way it's going.

      Rocksta_ · 26/05/2019 at 18:24

      Similar here. Young instead of Parker, Lochart instead of Answerth. Add to that Rocky’s injury and this has been another shit week.

        hedski · 26/05/2019 at 18:39

        I had Parker on so I'll take that Rocksta

        JEL · 26/05/2019 at 18:43

        Young, Parker, Lochart & Answerth, my team is so awesome I have all 4 on field!!

        Throw in Cogs, Heeney and Rocky and anything over 2000 will be a miracle.

    Shake_n_bake · 26/05/2019 at 18:05

    If l had both l most likely would have started young aswell it’s amazing what a couple of goals does.

      Derek · 26/05/2019 at 18:41

      I’m just amazed I still have Parker

        Shake_n_bake · 26/05/2019 at 18:51

        Just didn’t make enough coin to move on & starved a tad with in coming rookies. I started with Larcky from rd 1 then moved him on after rd 3 thinking he’s just going to sit there couldn’t believe he was named the week after.

        Beezneez · 26/05/2019 at 19:37

        Me too. I fielded Young over Parker as well.

Maverick_ · 26/05/2019 at 18:09

Gee you were pretty vocal about young being a jet last week rocksta_ haha
after that performance it'll be a pass for me hopefully the midseason draft will help blood some new rookies.

    Rocksta_ · 26/05/2019 at 18:23

    Yea, I’m hearing ya mate. With Williams, Crouch and Danger out, and Hately still not getting a call up, I had no choice but to go early on him and field him. What’s worse, I traded Parker for him because of his 90BE (cost me 58 points).
    This game gives me the shits!

      silversovereign · 26/05/2019 at 18:26

      Bewley will be on the bubble in round 13 if he holds his spot. I took wills this week, hope he can hold his spot 😬

    Maverick_ · 26/05/2019 at 18:29

    yeah it's definately a cruel old season isn't it! I held off going early but he was in my plans for this week but not now.
    I feel previous years you can go into most sundays with a nice little lead and you can be pretty sure you'll win ya league games trusting ya proj. This year you go into sunday up by a nice margin and it be a blood bath and you lose somehow, it's been absolute carnage!

Tommy · 26/05/2019 at 18:20

Strange week. Have Williams, crouch, danger and Moore on the bench, had to field young, Lockhart and Corbett, yet somehow going to score 2300. I think there will be some massive scores this week, how’d everyone else go?

    silversovereign · 26/05/2019 at 18:29

    On track for about 2260 if Fyfe tons up. Absolute miracle as I had to field burgess, bolton, miers, wills, and copped rocky’s Injury.

      Maverick_ · 26/05/2019 at 18:30

      i'm looking at 2240 if fyfe tons. i think that's below par but i'll take it when you see who i actually had fielded! haha

    hedski · 26/05/2019 at 18:42

    2205 with a half to come from Fyfe who I traded in this week.
    Williams, Crouch and Danger on the bench also.

      hedski · 26/05/2019 at 19:21

      Keep going Teen Wolf, big last QTR.

    TOPHAWK1 · 26/05/2019 at 20:13

    2243 for me with M Crouch and Williams on the bench. Young onfield and Duursma on the bench cost me dearly. Still, I will take it.

    DeadLuckyiGuess · 26/05/2019 at 20:36

    Similar to you Tommy. I had, Williams, Crouch, Danger and had to field young (17), Scrimshaw (50) and Stack (65) plus the below pars from Neale, Smith, Marshall yet I ended up with 2336.

Chompers · 26/05/2019 at 18:21

Cmon Fyfey I need a big score to win, get it done you gun!

Chompers · 26/05/2019 at 18:40

Fielded Lockhart instead of answerth, real bright idea that one. Probably cost me 3 close league games, typical haha!

dontblushbaby · 26/05/2019 at 19:35

Lachie Neale is going to hurt with a projected 121 , sitting on 62 at the 10 min mark of the last 1/4

Derek · 26/05/2019 at 19:50

Lions needed a Rampe

Chompers · 26/05/2019 at 19:56

fanfooty better be wrong, just give fyfe 1 more point ffs

    Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 20:05

    Think scaling's finished Chompers did you get there?

      Chompers · 26/05/2019 at 20:09

      I drew… don’t know how to feel, hopefully CD can give fyfe an extra point for being a good bloke

        Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 20:19

        Oh that's awkward but 2 points is better than no points mate, could be the diff between finals or not.

          Chompers · 26/05/2019 at 20:36

          At least it means I don’t have to worry about percentage anymore…

Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 19:56

Onya Holty 2500, some other great scores in the leagues too, well done fellas.
Who'd of thought after the way this week started.

    Derek · 26/05/2019 at 20:01

    Could he? …… seriously! Just maybe?

    KSinny · 26/05/2019 at 20:01

    And that's why he's right up the top of the ranks, good job Holty only 2290 for me this week.

    COREYSC · 26/05/2019 at 20:11

    wowee! what a score I'm happy with 2,300+ had Williams, Dangerfield and M.Crouch out so happy days

KSinny · 26/05/2019 at 19:59

2290 for me with Danger, Williams and Crouch benched And Both Young and Lockhart on field. How'd everyone go this week?

    Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 20:04

    2265 , only won a few leagues this week I think, some pretty good scores out there.

    The Ranger · 26/05/2019 at 20:10

    2197 for me Oliver, Young and Witherden ruined me.

    hedski · 26/05/2019 at 20:10

    2280 odd with the same 3 benched Skinny, happy with that after the last few weeks.

hedski · 26/05/2019 at 20:08

Bloody magnificent to crack 2500 Holty, you are killing it mate 👍🍻

2241 which I'm reasonably happy with considering my injuries. I thought there would be carnage everywhere this weekend but there have been a lot of high scores. In my cash league there are 8 scores over 2300 including a 2529, be interested to know the top scores and what the average scores will be.

    Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 20:20

    Yeah Pman very surprising how high the bar is this week, par could be 2200?

      redherringfc · 26/05/2019 at 20:43

      I had an absolute shocker and ended up on 2188.

      I’d put par around 2300 or higher.

Iamme · 26/05/2019 at 20:12

Carried 5 spuds plus Rocky and somehow still managed 2340

AuroraBorealis?! · 26/05/2019 at 20:15

As predicted, fielding Lockhart & Young over Parker & Answerth f*cks me over completely, whereas last round i did the opposite and still got f*cked over. You just can't win

    HeadsUp · 26/05/2019 at 20:31

    Who will you be fielding this week AB?

    Chompers · 26/05/2019 at 20:33

    Yeah let us know AB and I’ll do the opposite…

      KSinny · 26/05/2019 at 20:34

      Hahaha same here

      AuroraBorealis?! · 26/05/2019 at 20:49

      Thinking 22 Zac Dawsons

    Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 21:37

    Gotta reverse the trend mate and do next week what they don't expect you to, the cruel Supercoach Gods that is.

TelescopicCox · 26/05/2019 at 20:20

2260 this week so can’t complain! Hopefully we can all get some players back next week and keep moving forward

    Derek · 26/05/2019 at 20:36

    Almost same. 2262 just so average again.

TBone_9 · 26/05/2019 at 20:22

2322 this week, pretty stoked tbh! Hinge is looking pretty good to me for the pickup this week, especially for anyone who has Lockhart I think that might be a popular trade. Hopefully Danger, Crouch and Williams back this week. How’d everyone else end up? Anyone crack above 2500??

    Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 20:35

    Just the Holt in my Leagues TBone….well done mate.
    Other honourable mentions over 2400 in my leagues ….
    Shake n bake 2460
    Simmos Stars 2456
    Scandilands FC 2442
    Pauline Pantsdown 2420
    Manhores 2418
    Moustachio 2400
    Please forgive if a few numbers are out, it still seems to be changing even now.

      Shake_n_bake · 26/05/2019 at 20:41

      And my lowest score Oliver 53!

        Holty01 · 26/05/2019 at 20:44

        Nice score Shake. Fantastic week not to have Neale. And even better for you as he could be a nice pickup now after the byes.👍

          Shake_n_bake · 26/05/2019 at 20:55


          Shake_n_bake · 26/05/2019 at 20:56

          Hope you continue what your doing Holty. Just keep an eye on those byes hope you come out on top 🍻

    Sam_01 · 26/05/2019 at 20:40

    2289 for me will probably continue to slide down the ranks 🙁

    Daz · 26/05/2019 at 20:46

    2334 with a tasty 17, coulda taken petrols 37 or whatever it was, but not crouch, williams, and danger, would love to see 2 out of 3 come back next week. Anyone see rocky's hammy? suppose he hold if if he is only technically going to miss one week cause he has the bye that follows.

      Sam_01 · 26/05/2019 at 20:51

      Yeh in the same boat daz probably just have to hold him he did try to go on after he tweaked it so he wasn’t a complete write off

    silversovereign · 26/05/2019 at 20:58

    2281 this week. Dropped to 3300. Last 2 weeks have not been kind to me.

    Lazza · 26/05/2019 at 22:03

    With 9 on field rookies I’m pretty happy with my 2279… had Oliver and Neale who both spudded up..

      Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 22:20

      That's good Lazza, heading in the right direction mate.

        Lazza · 26/05/2019 at 22:29

        When I was 955 with 11 to play .. I thought 2000 would be a struggle .. ended winning 6 out of 10 including the cash comp … I hope Derek’s not too p1ssed with me .. pipped him at the post in The Rat Pack..
        hopefully we will have some decent rookies to trade this week..

          Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 22:36

          Bit of a crazy week mate, I'm sure Derek will be spewing about bringing Young in and fielding him over Parker, sometimes those calls just need a week's waiting period.

            Derek · 26/05/2019 at 23:20

            Spweeing alright. Got pipped in 3 eagues by less than what Parker scored

            Finally Brought in Boak this week.

            Scrimshaw teased us again with 50 at half time.

            Rocky went down

            Watching Oliver get tagged out of the game ruined my weekend

            And the Rookies were crap.

            Wasn’t all gloom;

            Libba redeemed, and Durrsma played good.

            Got Gunston last week and he rewarded me

            And the Grundy/Gawn combo is still the best tickets in town

            Plus the Hawks won

              Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 23:36

              Gunston was a ripper call this week Derek, sounds like you just had some cumulative bad luck this week mate.

    JohnDJ59 · 26/05/2019 at 22:19

    Hi TBone, about the same for me, ended up with 2343, being my best score so far for the season. I'll be looking to get Hinge in as well, since I need to do a downgrade so I can do my upgrade trade. Won seven of my nine league games and for once wasn't involved in any close games.

      Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 22:25

      7 of 9's good John, and she was hot in Star Trek Voyager lol, I only won 4 of 10 this week…that was her ugly Sister.
      Don't you go giving it away next year…it's not permitted 🙂

        JohnDJ59 · 26/05/2019 at 22:42

        Yes she was Russty, I'm a bit of a Star Trek fan, grew up watching Star Trek:The Original Series, as it's now called and watched all the other different series and films as they came out.

Tommy · 26/05/2019 at 20:40

Just realised Neale will be ripe for the picking just after his bye, beautiful!

    Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 20:42

    And hopefully not getting tagged again ay?…lol

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/05/2019 at 21:51

    Walsh – neale rd 14 done. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😉" src=""&gt;

      Beezneez · 27/05/2019 at 10:36

      Locked that one in couple of weeks ago Trigga.

Maverick_ · 26/05/2019 at 20:57

and we are open for business!
Whose everyone trading in and out this week, any rage trades or standout rooks?
It's nice to not be raging about brayshaw on a sunday night for once.

    Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 21:35

    Not sure yet Mav but something will be done for sure!…glad I don't have Young to think about…he will not be coming into my team now.
    Hinge isn't a swinger but he's worth thinking about swinging into our sides 😉

    Lazza · 26/05/2019 at 21:57

    Keep any eye on Bewley… his SC score should have been higher .. his last quarter was key in the Dockers win ..

    Maverick_ · 26/05/2019 at 22:45

    yeah im happy i didnt jump on young early russty. I watched that game lazz how about his 35m bullet to hit a teammate off HB with a minute to go, ice in his veins and set up the attack. Early days but i am considering rozee – bewley/hinge & ROB – grundy.
    rozee shoulda been turned into a def premo but need grundy after his projected to be 700k+ next week not sure I can wait any longer. I'm burning trades like they're going out of fashion to only stay in touch with the pack.

Tommo09 · 26/05/2019 at 21:19

Thoughts on grabbing Pendles this week? I was looking at him Thursday night hoping for a lowish score so he would go down in price but he decided to get almost 150

    Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 21:42

    Some good scores in there Tommo but also a few crap ones in between, 3 round average and overall average are almost the same.
    I think final mids if possible should be averaging over 110.
    It's a risky prospect, might be better off forking out a bit more dosh for someone younger averaging more.

Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 21:34

Well done Holt…you beat me by 14 Neil, would've been different if I'd had Grundy, well done mate.

    The Ranger · 26/05/2019 at 21:52

    Great work Holty, keep it up.

    Swans2012 · 27/05/2019 at 06:55

    Is Darcy out long term?

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/05/2019 at 21:35

Thanks for everything hairy cat but that was a shocker on the weekend.
You have been brilliant though and I will put the $250k profit to good use

What rooks though aint much about?
Watched saints didnt see young he was the invisible man. Picked up a couple of cheap possies. May get the flick.

Didn't do too bad considering scimshaw, Lockhart, stocker, bewley and miers were all on deck.

Hope to get a couple of the big boys back.this week.

    Shake_n_bake · 26/05/2019 at 21:53

    Played you Trigg in ur league

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/05/2019 at 21:56

      I know mate too good this time around.

      Had too many rooks on field and 5 of them were very average.

      Hope too face off again in the future.

      BTW. Nice score mate. 😉

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/05/2019 at 21:58

Go for gold holt!

We are right behind you …

Rocksta_ · 26/05/2019 at 22:22

Well done Holty. The double sideways worked a treat.

    Derek · 26/05/2019 at 22:49

    The Holt Bolt

Derek · 26/05/2019 at 22:46

Whitfield is in 39% of teams. I’m assuming that will increase a fair bit this week. Including the Bunnies.

    Browncow · 26/05/2019 at 23:13

    Think you are right Derek. He is one of about a dozen must haves and should boost the Bunnies.

Maverick_ · 26/05/2019 at 22:57

Great Work Holty.
Your great grandfather Harold would be proud!
Do the japanese supercoach?

    Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 23:02

    My Mum used to work for his wife Mav, Dame Zara Bate..still a big mystery surrounding his disappearance.

      Maverick_ · 26/05/2019 at 23:15

      that is very interesting! I guess it will never be known what really happened.
      17th of december Harold went missing and my dad was born on the 17th of december.
      I'm still unsure to this day whether my father is infact harold holt…. i'm not ruling it out

        Derek · 26/05/2019 at 23:24

        In Bundeena we have the Harrold Holt Swimming Club. Meets every Wednesday

          Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 23:32

          Hopefully they make it home Derek….lol

        Russty_ · 26/05/2019 at 23:33

        That means Brad Holt could be your long lost brother Mav!…hehehe

          Maverick_ · 26/05/2019 at 23:41

          i won't rule that out either russty hahah
          might be claiming him as my long lost brother once he wins the overall lol

Russty_ · 27/05/2019 at 00:26

Only 240 points behind Holty, that could be made up in a game or 2 🙂

Swans2012 · 27/05/2019 at 06:56

Looks like the double sideways paid off!!

Murray · 27/05/2019 at 14:03

I have 200k in the bank and COULD go Grundy to Grundy in 1 trade. Should I do it or is just a luxury trade?

Goldy seems to be coming good at long last

    Murray · 27/05/2019 at 14:13

    sorry meant goldy to grundy

    Jace · 27/05/2019 at 15:07

    I will be doing the sames trade but I'm going to wait till Grundy has had his Bye.

Swoopstar · 27/05/2019 at 21:44

So only way I can get Whitfield in is trading Moore and Clark who still have bit of money to make. But since Whitfield is likely to climb +20/30k this week and eventually back to 600k+, i'm thinking it's a sensible move. Thoughts?

    Russty_ · 27/05/2019 at 21:51

    I'm probably doing the same this week Swoopstar, Moore has possibly made all the money he's gonna make and trading someone averaging 79 after 8 games for someone averaging 116 is a decent move to strengthen your side.
    I assume you're also doing Clark to Hinge?
    Plus Moore has the dodgy ankle so who knows if that keeps affecting him?…he has been injury prone in the past.

Bill · 28/05/2019 at 09:22

I like Willis
