SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 12

THEY’RE HERE!

It’s not just us SuperCoaches freaking out about this three-week period. Brendon Bolton has joined Brad Scott on the coaching scrap heap for 2019. Lek was down at Princes Park immediately for crisis talks with the powers of the club. He shared his presentation for the vacant coaching position with the JR Crew in the group chat Tuesday morning and despite wanting to enforce mandatory sleeve’s on match day and every player must have luscious 70’s pornstar mo’s before being considered for selection the Blues decided not to be pioneers in coaching for 2020. Weak. 

Coaching genius!

Back to the footy. With most being able to field a full 22 players this week it’s an opportunity to be aggressive with your trading. Don’t @ me if I’m wrong but guys like Bewley and Gardner have pretty strong job security I reckon. A sneaky downgrade or two to build cash now could allow for a triple upgrade next week.

Along with his usual captain’s article, the byes call for a voice of reason and Damo was that voice of reason on the podcast this week. Barron has crammed more information than you can poke a rookie sized stick at in Around the Grounds. Matty has given a change up to the cheat sheet this week, looking at your best round 14 options if you find you need to make your team a bit more even. 

The News

Before I get into the teams, a few quick bye round FAQ’s.

  • Your best scoring on field 18 players make up your score. So if, for example, you have all 6 forwards available and a F7 emergency, that F7 won’t count towards your score (unless one of those forward is a late out).
  • You can use players that are on their bye as captains loopholes as they will be locked out at the end of the round.
  • You will have three trades per week that will not rollover. For example, if you only use two in round 12 you will not have four the next week.

Okay, here we go. Richmond are decimated on the injury front. Brendon Ellis and David Astbury join an already lengthy injury list. Their pain is our gain however, with Patrick Naish (DEF – 123.9k) making his debut. Shai Bolton has been dropped. Geelong have recalled Gary Ablett after his week off after a busy fortnight of elbowing people.

Carlton have made four changes for David Teague’s first match at the helm. Kade Simpson and Dale Thomas are amongst the ins. Liam Stocker is one of the outs. At Brisbane I have no idea who Jacob Allison is but he replaces Ben Keays. Some pretty uninspiring changes in what will probably be an uninspiring game between Gold Coast and North Melbourne. A few have Jack Bowes as a POD (why?), he will miss this week with injury. Let’s all breathe a collective sigh of relief for Rory Sloane, who is right to go this week. Matt Crouch has also been named and he should just not move between now and game day in case he injures himself. Bryce Gibbs has again been omitted. GWS actually doing what they said they would is both amazing and suspicious, Zac Williams is in for the injured Lachie Whitfield.   

Only one Sunday game makes me sad. Darcy Cameron (RUC – 135.7k), Ryley Stoddart (FWD – 136.8k), and James Rose (FWD – 165k) come into the squad for Sydney, along with James Rowbottom. He is not on the bubble but still affordable at 131k. As expected, Shannon Hurn will miss for West Coast, Josh Rotham (DEF – 123.9k) is in the squad and averages 77 from his two games earlier in the year. A word of caution however, Jackson Nelson has also been named. Jarrod Cameron (MID/FWD – 117.3k) could make his debut. 

On Monday’s celebration for Queen Lizzie’s big day that isn’t her actual real birthday. Pre-season buzz boy Isaac Quaynor (DEF – 153.3k) is in the squad for Collingwood. Dayne Beams is again out with injury. Marty Hore has been named on field for the Dees in positive signs. Steven May and Jake Lever will play their first game together for the club. 

The House of Evil

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

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

Can I go now? (Trade bait)

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

For 87,000 of us, finding a replacement for Lachie Whitfield is at the top of the ‘to-do’ list this week. You might be able to get away with holding him this week and trading him to Luke Ryan (523k) or James Sicily (491k) once they’ve come off their byes. If you’re keen to move him on this week and keep your bye structures in place then a trade to Rory Laird is probably your safest bet. At 504k, he’s not the Laird of 2018 that was smashing out hundreds for fun, that said, he hasn’t dropped below 84 so far this year.

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

Huge game tonight between the Tigers and the Cats at the G. Richmond was embarrassed last week week against the Roos at Marvel, but if you’ve listened to 5 minutes of Channel 7 commentary during a Richmond game this year you’ll know how good their recent record is on the hallowed turf.

There’s a clear winner in the world of fantasy however, with Geelong being 5th in total points this year and 15th in total conceded, compared to Richmond’s 15th in total points scored and 3rd in total conceded. Keep that in mind when you build your lineups. 

RUC

If you want to fit in the Geelong midfield studs tonight you’re probably not looking too hard at Rhys Stanley (11.3k). Ivan Soldo (8.4k) has had 10 tackles in his two games but won’t give you much in terms of possessions. Noah Balta (7.8k) has played at his best at the MCG, his last two there are 82 and 79. However, Draftstars have changed him to a ruck only which lessens his appeal somewhat. Richmond flat out suck against tall marking targets and with David Astbury out there’s no obvious matchup for Esava Ratugolea (5.9k).

DEF

This is a hard position to pick tonight as both sides are bottom 3 in conceding points to the opposition number 1 defender over the past month. However, we’ve still got some studs on offer. Bachar Houli (14.5k) is averaging a ridiculous 132 over his past 3. Tallying 38, 37, and 35 touches in those games. Mitch Duncan (MID / 15.4k) has defender status and averages a lazy 119 over his past 6. If you’re paying up, I prefer Houli. Tom Stewart (13.3k) is a safe floor of 80 but there isn’t any value in him. Sydney Stack (10.1k) is at an awkward price but looks very composed the ball in his hands.

If you wanted to avoid the studs all together then Jordan Clark (8.2k) is your first value pick. That 27 two weeks ago has kept his price down despite games of 77, 84, and 95 in the past month. Patrick Naish (5k) debuts tonight at minimum price. He has averaged 26 disposals (19 kicks) and 4 marks in 8 VFL games this season.    

FWD

As mentioned in the rucks, tall forwards = Richmond’s kryptonite. Tom Hawkins (11.2k) has kicked 16 goals in his past 4 games without really lighting things up in the Draftstars column. I’m predicting a physically hard game tonight; in games where Liam Baker (9.9k) records at least 5 tackles he has scored 82, 96, 112, and 90. Tom Atkins (7.3k) is in the same boat. The ‘G has been a happy hunting ground for Gary Ablett (12.9k), who returns tonight. Forward eligible midfielders Tim Kelly (14.7k) and Patrick Dangerfield (14.5k) are also in play. Dusty (MID / 13.3k) will need to be switched on if the Tigers have any chance for this one. 

MID

If you couldn’t stuff Danger, Kelly, or Dusty up forward chuck them in here. Jack Graham (9.8k) returns tonight and he’s the only member of the under 10k club that I’m interested in. He’ll be under instructions to tackle anything that moves so I like his floor. Trent Cotchin (10.7k) would’ve been better for the run last week but it’s hard to trust him yet. Cam Guthrie (10.9k) is another member of the ‘if he tackles, he’ll score well’ brigade and has been named on the ball tonight. Good luck!

    For my last midi field spot should I Trade in josh kelly now at probs peak price, or get Cunnington and have the 100k spare?

    • SC_Kev7 says:

      To complete your mids you need JK mate. Superstar!

    • GreendaleFC says:

      Depends how much cash you have and if your forwards/backs/rucks need much improvement. If you are mostly premium already bring in Kelly, otherwise I'd get Cunners and look to get full premo a little earlier.

  2. Swoosh111 says:

    I have Goldy, Mummy and O'Brien as my ruck trio. All three share the same byes and even play against each other..

    Mummy is likely to drop $ bigtime so I am wondering whether to park O'Brien on the field and trade out Mummy for the $ to be used on Grundy/Gawn in round 14. (no point this round as they are opposing each other).

    Thoughts from the community would be hugely welcomed

    • SC_Kev7 says:

      Like it. You'll need a plan to get those guys in, especially if ROB doesn't hold his spot when Sauce is available again

  3. Swoosh111 says:

    The lack of decent forward/mid downgrade options this week is leading to consider Z.Clarke (bye) as a downgrade.

    Does anyone have advice for or against this or any better options for a downgrade?

  4. Dash says:

    18 Trades – 18K
    Laird, Sicily, Whitfield, Duursma, Clark, Answerth, (Burgess, Marsh)
    Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Heeney, Atkins, (O Baker, Scott, Setterfield)
    Gawn, Grundy, (Bines)
    Boak, T Kelly, Dunkley, Danger, J Cameron, Balta (Parker, Corbett)

    Whitfield > Houli or Lloyd?
    Should I trade another rookie in? Options? or Just use the 1 trade this week and hold.

  5. MidPricer says:

    Whitfield to J Kelly via Duursma swing. Kelly at top price but with the Whitfield injury I have the cash to get him…may not in the future… every cloud has a silver lining… it just hurts when you got Whitfield in last week.

  6. TommyC99 says:

    I'm having to trade Whtfield this week with an eye towards next week. Who i bring in has to play this week as i have 17 currently.
    How many of these blokes do you reckon will play next week? Obviously a week is a long time in footy but how many of these that play will determine whether i bring in Lloyd or Cunnington. (much prefer Lloyd)

    Burgess, Stocker, Young

    So i currently have 13 who SHOULD play next week (doesn't include the 3 above). Next week im looking at bringing in Sicily, Gardner and Bont so i'd only need 2 of those 3 rookies above to play and i should get to 18. Stocker was playing well so you'd think hes straight back. I haven't been watcing Burgess play but hes survived 2 weeks in a row so he might play, but i really can't see Young holding his spot.

    Thoughts guys? Cunnington does look the goods but my last 3 spots on targetting Bont, Treloar and one of Neale/Jkelly, so Cunnington throws a spanner in the works of that plan, but at the same time he is convenient for the byes.

  7. TommyC99 says:

    So im trading whitfield out with an eye to next week as well. At this stage i have 17 this week and 13 guaranteed starters next week. What are you thoughts on the likelyhood of these guys playing?

    Burgess, Stocker, Young

    Next week im looking at bringing in Sicily, Bont and Gardner which takes the total to 16 before those rookies. Would you bring in Cunnington for bye structure, but he ruins my end team plans (had treloar, Bont and Neale taking my last 3 spots) or just go for who i need which is Lloyd and bank on 2 of the above rookies to get picked next week?

  8. KSinny says:

    Who should I trade Whitfield to? Can't use dpp so has to be a defender. If i get someone who has there bye this week I'll only have 17 playing if Sloane is a late out and if I trade someone in with there bye next week I'll be down a few men. Thinking Houli atm. Thought?

  9. Stupid Coach says:

    Love your work Kev. My main dilemma is whether to trade out Whitefield and whether to use two or three trades. Playing for league wins (currently 12th, 7th, 3rd). Bye rounds currently looking like this – 17, 18 and 18.

    Option 1: Lockhart to Baker (Melb) and Rozee to Cameron or Zeibel. Gives me 19 on the field and leaves me with 16 trades.

    Option 2: Lockhart to Baker (Melb), Rozee to Cameron or Zeibel and Whitfield to Lloyd or Houli. Gives me 20 on the field and leaves me with 15 trades.

    Leaning towards Option 1 to preserve trades but Option 2 is awfully tempting.

    Thoughts?

  10. SteamHam1 says:

    Would it be worth trading Whitfield to Lloyd?

  11. Lekdog says:

    Can't believe the Blues won't move into the 21st century and enforce mandatory moustaches…madness.

  12. Cliffy says:

    I know this is probably a stretch to ask, but up to how long could Stocker be out for with his foot injury? No updated injury reports for me to refer to…

  13. Cliffy says:

    Also thoughts on these DG trades for this week:

    Scott – Bewley
    Parker – Gardner

    Will take me down to 18 trades and I'll have $225,500 to turn a Rd 13 bye player easily into a Rd 12 premo next week (like Hore for instance).

    Also my team as it currently stands (will just be able to field 18 when it originally was going to be 20 before Hurn and Stocker went out unfortunately):

    D: Hurn*, Laird, Smith, Williams, Hore, Clark (Duursma*, Young)
    M: Neale, Fyfe*, Cripps, Oliver, M.Crouch, Walsh, Gibbons, Answerth, (Macrae*, Stocker*, Scott*)
    R: Grundy, Gawn
    F: Dangerfield, Kelly, Heeney, Petruccelle, Dunkley*, Boak* (Parker*, Young*)

    • Cliffy says:

      * – either injured, not selected to play, or has the bye this round, just for everyone's reference.

  14. Shake_n_bake says:

    Yeo out

  15. Cliffy says:

    Oh also, would anyone be tempted by Rotham should he get his 3rd game this week, since he's still on the bubble? Just interested to know in general.

  16. Libba says:

    Rotham is in and could go out after the bye for Hurn… I'm hoping he stays in

  17. John says:

    If you had to trade in one, who would you trade in out of Gardner, Bewley or Rotham (if he's named)?

  18. James says:

    VC Danger or Kelly (Kelly is a unque for me) ?

    • Libba says:

      If you want to play it safe id go danger, but if you want to risk it go t.kelly… if the VC fails you can always hope you put the right captaincy

  19. Joey says:

    Rotham finally named but is He only going to cover hurn the 1 week then dropped though? I have Rozee with a BE of 99 to trade and to have 20 onfield

  20. The Ranger says:

    Think I'm settled on Whitfield, Libba and Balta OUT Heater, Hawkins and Gardner IN
    Hoping Heater will get a bump from Whitfield being out.
    Leaves me 222K for further upgrades next week.

    • Derek says:

      heater is going along ok. better choice than Rich

      • The Ranger says:

        GWS have a great run home too Derek, I figure he'll av at least 90 but could push that up toward 100 if I'm lucky.

    • hedski says:

      Nice Ranger.
      I am thinking Whitfield, Lockhart and Parker out for Stewart, Tomahawk in.
      The third in (rookie) I'm not sure whether to go a $102k mid/fwd link/looper or just get Bewley.
      I think it might be smarter to leave Bewley to next week when he is hopefully named or I could end up with another B.Scott useless non DPP pleb on my bench.
      Thoughts? Go Cats.

      • The Ranger says:

        Yeah Bewley is on the list for next week for me.
        I figure even if Gardner spuds up (and the way my season has gone so far it's pretty much guaranteed) I can at least swing him about as an F/D 8.

        • hedski says:

          Against my better judgement I got Gardener in last week.
          I really need to open a mid/fwd link so thinking a cheap Patsy could be the go.

        • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

          I gonna see how naish goes tonight.
          If goes ok gonna trade in Gardner in def.
          Then next week drew to naish via dpp to get cash for premo splurge.
          If naish spuds will look at Roth.

  21. Yo0 says:

    Dear Community I need some help 16 trades Left and 43k in the bank not sure what to do.

    DEF:LIoyd,Whitfield, Smith, Hore,Clark, Duursma (Burgess,Answerth)

    MID: Neale,Fyfe,Macrae, Taranto,Kelly,Gaff,Cripps, B. Crouch ( Scott,Hayes, Atkins)

    RUCK: Gawn, Grundy (O'brien)

    FWD: Dunkley, Boak, Dangerfield, Heeney,Pretruccelle, Parker (Young, Bines)

  22. TommyC99 says:

    Trade Lloyd or T Kelly?

  23. Dan says:

    I just saw on Twitter that Toby Greene is in doubt. If Hately were to be a late in would you bring him into your side? Or is his j/s too risky?

    • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

      Ripping question

      Reckon jump on if a late in if u want a cash injection

    • Blue says:

      When will we know

    • Longy says:

      I will be getting him in if he plays. The money he makes by only playing one game will far outweigh the money some of these other spud rookies are going to make for the rest of the season.

  24. Joey says:

    Bailey Scott to rotham or Gardner?

    I’ve had a gutful from bailey and hasn’t even looked good in the 2s so Is it a good move to move him on with having made 50thousand and low BE but low chance of playing

  25. Troy says:

    Cunnington or Gaff for M8? I preffered Cunners until i saw his run home and lack of games at Marvel?

  26. KSinny says:

    Lockhart to Rotham this week or wait till next week and get Gardner if he's named?

  27. TelescopicCox says:

    Who would you bring in to avoid a donut?

    Rotham, Naish or hope for Hately

  28. Nathan says:

    I've been stuck with Ben McCay from North all season. Should I ditch him this week, while I've got a few spare trades or hold on to him for the rest of the year. Was thinking of going to Rotham. I'm on 19 trades

  29. Stacky23 says:

    Def Hurn,Whitfield,Williams,Crisp,Hore,Duursma, (Clark,Answert)
    Mid Kelly,Cripps,Macrae,Yeo,Crouch,Coniglio,Libba,Stack (Hayes,Stocker,Setterfield)
    Ruc Gawn,Grundy (O'brien)

    Thinking OUT: Whitfield Hayes and O'brien, IN: Milera Gardner and Bines
    Gives me 600k to go clark and either Hore or Answerth to Dunkley and Fyfe
    Good trades or planning to far ahead (20 trades left)

  30. Dash says:

    Whitfield to Lloyd would be great except for his bye.
    Houli tempting, Z Williams, H Shaw, K Simpson?

  31. Oliver says:

    Does anyone remember what time the Monday teams are usually finalized?

  32. Gainsy says:

    Whitfield, menegola, stocker out.
    Simpson, j.cameron, t.lynch in.
    ….because… why not

  33. TommyC99 says:

    Hayes to Rotham (gives me 19)

    Or

    Hayes To bewley (will still have 18)

  34. Russty_ says:

    Jeez this Naish guy's looking all right, wonder if it's just a first game adrenaline score.

  35. Ja191 says:

    had to go early on naish, keep going son

  36. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Geez the hairy cat is a rippa!

  37. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Really gonna need you to lift houli

  38. Russty_ says:

    Balta's back to being…Balta, Houli dooly starting to get going, I'd be worried if I brought him in this week though.

  39. hedski says:

    Jeez Clark might not even make his be, what is it around 16?

  40. Russty_ says:

    Looks like it'll be a contest out of who'll get the less shit score between Balta and Burgess in my team this week.
    I have all the gun rookies in my team.

  41. Daniel says:

    Thoughts on trading Whitfield out for Daniel Rich, seems to score well in Lions wins and has a decent fixture for the rest of the year, would mean my final defence upgrade will be either hurn or whitfield when he returns, or do I hold whitfield? Already have Lloyd/Laird/Williams/Sicily and B.Smith

  42. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    I thought Geelong winning with a margin of 1-39 at $2 was pretty good odds, apparently not? The cats are on a rampage

  43. Russty_ says:

    In the words of that psychotic mental case, Donald Trump…Balta, you're fired.

  44. Russty_ says:

    That'll do Danger-pig…that'll do. 🙂

  45. Russty_ says:

    Wow Tigers not much better than the Blues last week.

  46. Cliffy says:

    Danger VC 🙂

    First question to ask, during Byes you just have to stick the C on a Bye player right to claim the double points for VC correct?

    And my other question, is Scott – Rotham via Duursma stupid for this week? Scott can’t really crack it back with North anyway…

    • Cliffy says:

      *back into the North side

      • Cliffy says:

        Or alternatively could go Scott – Gardner for extra cash generation and for better JS in the long run too?

    • Derek says:

      Yes. Any bye player for C.

      Do you need a player who will play this week to field 18?

      Rootham might just get this week and be out of team after bye when Hurn is back. Plenty better options next week

      • Cliffy says:

        Hi Derek,

        No I don't need him to field 18, I just was disgusted with Clark's 24 tonight and thought by using a trade I could cancel that out haha… Maybe it's ill advisable, especially considering just about all my opponents had to play Clark.

        • Russty_ says:

          Rotham's only a fill in Cliffy…this week will be his 3rd game filling in for an injured player.

          • Cliffy says:

            Yes Russty, so I very much feel it's a wasted trade for me, a poor score is easier to swallow than a wasted trade down the line.

  47. JugHead says:

    Whew. Gave Balta the hip and shoulder just in time.

    • Russty_ says:

      It's a freakin miracle he even ever reached 300 grand…Sell !!!!……………..!!!!!!!!!!……….

      ………………….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Did I mention….!!!!!!!!!!! ?

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Sell sell sell!!!! That Balta fraud is getting punted next week with Clark. Happy to take $315K and $290K for their sorry ars-es.

  48. hedski says:

    Honestly think Clark deserved more than 24 points for that game, did a few good things.

  49. TommyC99 says:

    Whos more likely to finish top 10 mid out of Bont and Cunnington? Only have room in my midfield for one of them. If get cunnington i have 18 this week, if i get Bont, i play with 17. I think Bont is a more exciting pick due to his ceiling but cunnington is far more reliable and is bye friendly. I still notice Cunners doesnt score particularly amazing in losses, and he has GWS, Pies, eagles, cats and lions in the run home.

    Which one guys?

    • Big G says:

      Toss of a coin but I would say you are spot on with your analysis: Bont more likely to go big, but can throw in the odd bad game.

  50. BradleyTC99 says:

    Need a bit of help pls community. So after my 3 planned trades next week, i have worked out i will have 17 basically certain starters. And would need just 1 of ROB, Young, Burgess and Stocker to play to get 18, but i wouldn't be surprised if none of them played. Would you cull one of them this week instead of next week to open up a trade if none of those get up? Or should i just wait and hope 1 can get up? If i did the trade this week i'd be bringing in Gardner if that helps!

  51. Big G says:

    I thought clark deserved more than 24 sc points.

  52. Rick Grimes says:

    One bonus of bye round is I won't be stuck with that putrid Clark score (I hope). Has been an interesting ride Jordan, but pack your bags.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Could not agree more Rick. Clark and Balta both on my bench last night. Those two shit stains will be sent packing next week. 24 SC and 29 SC respectively. Absolutely putrid.

  53. Shake_n_bake says:

    Hatley l think will come in.

  54. Leonard says:

    possibly

  55. COREYSC says:

    When will we know I was thinking downgrading Walsh to Hatley

  56. RealDealNeale says:

    Would 4 trades left be too little at "full premium"? Below are my bye premo trade in plans I'm toying with

    Opt 1 – Fyfe / Lloyd / Sicily in during the bye (only 8 trades post byes to upgrade to full premo)
    Opt 2 – Andrews / Macrae / Blakeley (10 trades post byes to upgrade to full premo)

  57. JugHead says:

    Dusty has teased this year. He was on 49pts at quarter time, then couldnt ton up. Bringing him in could be a great move. Or he could just get mid pricer scores for the rest of the season. Ive nearly brought him in 3 times this year. But I dont have the cohones when I see him go missing for big chunks of the game.

    • COREYSC says:

      Dusty injured his lower back and spent time on the bench getting it treated for most of the third quarter

    • Derek says:

      I started the year with him thinking he was a bargain, traded him out when he was suspended.

      Bought him back this week.

      Was very happy at quarter time, but the tigers were belted after that and he did ok to get to 100.

      I like how they have their last 8 matches at the MCG. They usually play very well there.

      • JugHead says:

        Didn't know he was injured. Yep, there is plenty of upside and his average is improving. If he builds his scoring toward Sept he is a bargain. But if you think he averages 90-95 from here on (I think he is better than that), there are plenty of other choices.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      I hear ya Jughead. I reversed my Dusty trade 4 minutes before the bounce last night. At 1/4 time I was crying as he was flying. In the end Dusty disappointed again. Relieved I held off. Trying to pull back 2 trades after punting Whitfield for Gawn. DPP

    • JEL says:

      Dusty teases every year, apart from 2017. That was the only year he averaged more than 110 (his avg was 119).
      There are currently a heap of players with a better average and who are cheaper to choose from.

  58. Dash says:

    Stuck with Balta and Clark last night.
    Grabbed Houli for Whitfield which turned out okay I guess.
    Rotham a nephew Hately are interesting.
    Would Hately be better to trade in if named?
    I'm not sure who I can offload now. B Scott, Corbett, Burgess?
    I hope those Gold Coast players get more than 24 and 29.

    *Rotham and Hately I meant 😉

  60. Tommo09 says:

    What is a good score for bye weeks?

    • silversovereign says:

      I’d say anything over 1950-2000

    • JugHead says:

      Personally, I'm rapt with 1800+. But I want it for all 3 weeks. My planning is not to tank one of the weeks, so I rarely get a really good bye week score. Rank and leagues players wil have slightly different approaches, but I look more at what I can average across the three weeks.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      1850 to 1900 consistently over the 3 bye rounds. If you can average around those scores across all 3 rounds you are flying. Can't afford to tank as it craters you down the rankings.

      • Holty01 says:

        Agreed Hawk. Have you in the A Graders this week mate. Your team is looking good. Seems it’s missed a lot of the carnage this week.

        • TOPHAWK1 says:

          Thanks Holty. I am slowly getting my team in order. It's been real tough with Whitfield not once but twice this season. Switching him for Gawn via all those DPP moves was a bit of luck I really needed. Having Balta and Clark on the bench was a bit freaky on my part, but I'll take it! I remember when you had that amazing round about 3 weeks ago when all your rooks just tonned up on field. Atkins 115SC. You gotta ride your good fortune in this caper mate. Looking forward to a big battle in A graders mate! Will be a ripper.💪

          • Derek says:

            Ive got Holty in the Rabble and TH in Guns and Rookies. Neither got on Danger VC, will be watching Cripps and Neale very closely.

            • Derek says:

              Yowsa Neale!! That hurts no-Neale owners

              • Finnius says:

                Especially in the bye rounds Derek, where every score is proportionally more important because there are less on the field. keep going you good thing!

                • Finnius says:

                  B.E. of 170… hopefully he gets close enough that he won't be super cheap after his bye.

  61. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Carlton will beat Brisbane today. It will be their 5th win in 45 games. Tophawk has called it! Get on 'em Lek!<img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😂" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/1f602.svg"&gt;

  62. Nifty says:

    Any Hatley news guys?

  63. Catdog says:

    Marty Whore?
    Rory Bone?
    Cant afford to go down to 16 or 17 this week, should we expect a late out or will they play?

  64. TBone_9 says:

    If Hately were to be a late in today, would it even be worth it to trade a Hayes down to him? He may not even play next week and 100% won’t play round 14 when you really need him. Problem is he looks to be a good scorer and if he can just hang in there for a few weeks after this week, he will make enough to justify the trade even if he is dropped again after that. I’m considering it, but if Clarke from Essendon can hold his place he would be the optimal option to bring in to cover the rest of the byes. Hmm tough decisions

  65. Pranav says:

    currently have 19 players and stocker on field. if i put the e on hately will he replace stocker and give me 20 scores to choose from?

  66. Russty_ says:

    Blues are showing some good fight here, hope they can get up, would do them a lot of good,..even though I tipped Lions lol

  67. The Lost Boys says:

    Is it worth trading Burgess to Rotham, instead of Gardiner, this week? Looking for some cash generation for next week, and not too worried about coverage over the byes. Is there any chance Rotham stays in when Hurn comes back?

    Will still have 18 on the field if I trade out Burgess, and I figure his score is pretty much a lock to be lowest so won't be missed.

  68. Finnius says:

    Neale has been completely shut down by curnow this quarter.

  69. Tommo09 says:

    Had the C on Cripps from last week and chose Neale over him *sigh*

  70. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Crippa!!!! You little beauty!! He's on fire. VC nailed. BANG!

  71. JugHead says:

    C'mon Answorth……see if you can get to 50……

  72. Holty01 says:

    This really is a game of seconds. Went to change the vc from Neale to Cripps at the last minute but ticked over to 1:15 just as I was doing it. Thought at half time I was very lucky with Neale on 87. Now just came back home with the family to see Neale not doing much more and Crippa going berserk. Come on Neale, please get to 130.

    • Shake_n_bake says:

      Cant believe he didn’t have the curnow tag in the 1st half

      • Holty01 says:

        Curnow has only tagged once this year and that was last week against Zerrett. Teague came out during the week and said we would attack so I guess putting Curnow on someone to shut them down would go against what he said. But as a Carlton supporter very happy he came to his senses. As a Neale owner with the vc on him however, not happy.

    • Derek says:

      You must be happy with Walsh though

  73. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Not that anybody didn't already know this, but Patrick Cripps is a star

  74. Finnius says:

    Trading Walsh this week hurts. Cripps with the best individual game I have ever seen.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      That has to rank as one of the all time great games by any captain. Cripps is a true leader and outstanding captain. That running goal in the last quarter was inspirational. Well done Crippa!!

      • BadgerHoney7 says:

        that running goal was not only inspiration, but extremely impressive. how many players these days do you see take the responsibility to take on a couple, and do it with such ease. hes truly going to be one of the greatest players we've seen in the last decade.

        • Sam_01 says:

          Absolutely robbed if he doesn’t get scaled to 200
          Carried his spud of a side across the line

    • DavidC says:

      Was going to trade Walsh at his bye. Might just keep him now like I did with Kelly last year.

    • Daz says:

      Was sad trading walsh and him pumping a 141, traded to have 18 next week tho and he was the one with highest B/E to avg in my team, Had 20 this week but so much poo mixed in with monsters, was happy mcrouch repayed the faith.

  75. JEL says:

    There will be some very happy Crippa owners who had the C/VC on him.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      OOOOOHHHH YEAHHHH!! Happy chappy here.

      • Russty_ says:

        Good call TH, thought Danger's vc score was good but Cripps smashed it out of the park.

        • TOPHAWK1 says:

          Thanks Russty. Cripps was incredible today. I didnt expect him to pump out a mega score like that but havent nailed many VC's this year so it was great to get one. I am sitting on 800 SC after 5 played. Corbett is dropping a massive turd, Burgess actually doing OK for a change.

          • Russty_ says:

            800 for 5 is massive mate, even with the huge smelly Corbett log…hopefully he gets a few more touches for ya.

    • KSinny says:

      Was so close to changing from Jelly to him but decided not to ;((((

  76. KSinny says:

    Cripps, Walsh and Gibbons what a game!! Unfortunately Answerth stunk it up 🙁

    • BadgerHoney7 says:

      Thats huge mate, well done. Traded out both Walsh and Gibbons couple of weeks ago. Huge effort

  77. Shake_n_bake says:

    Why didn’t curnow go to Neale in the 1st half?!! They only had 1 good player in that 1st half. was sitting thinking just put curnow to him like they should av done from the 1st bounce

    • Ja191 says:

      Pretty much no sides have put a hard tag on him, amazes me

    • Holty01 says:

      it was the process mate. Do you think Bolton wanted Curnow out of the midfield after being one of their best last 2 years or was it the hierarchy wanting him forward to give all the kids the opportunity in the midfield? First half the same with Curnow up forward. I honestly think at halftime Teague thought stuff the process as he has the opportunity to coach next year if wins permit. Great work however and really hope he keeps Curnow in that midfield and ignores the Carlton hierarchy.
      I may well be wrong but as a Carlton supporter, it seems the hierarchy has more influence on game day then the coach

      • Shake_n_bake says:

        I think your correct Holty. Were you there? To see that 2nd half Cripps put in…wow.

        • Holty01 says:

          No wasn’t there. I will be watching the replay however. Just saw a few score updates during the day.

  78. Rick Grimes says:

    FML. I moved Walsh and Gibbons on I'm preparation for next week. Haha, this game is fookin cruel sometimes.

  79. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Every time without fail.
    Sack the coach win next week. 🤔
    Cripps was an angry brute. Just tore the game apart with Walsh riding shot gun. 👏
    Curnow shut down Neale but took till half time for the penny to drop on that one.

    Was gonna go walsh-fyfe next week but after that effort may just need to find another way to bring in fyfe.

    • Shake_n_bake says:

      Definitely hold for next week

    • silversovereign says:

      How many times did Cripps offload to Walsh!!!! It was a beautiful thing!

      • Russty_ says:

        So glad I kept Walsh, he just keeps getting better.

        • JugHead says:

          Yep. As good as he is, being a first year player I've been waiting for him to run out of petrol before moving him on. It doesn't look like happening.

          • Russty_ says:

            Yeah agree Jughead, last week looked like he might've needed a break soon but he really lifted this week and was probably one of the best on ground.
            Reckon he'll be close to my last traded out midfielder if at all.

    • Lazza says:

      🤔 The Pies should sack Buckley after they win the Prelim.. 😎

  80. Jeff says:

    Who to put the Captain on – Lloyd, Coniglio or Williams?

  81. Russty_ says:

    Burgess is on 26!….lol, wonder if he can get to 60 or so?

    • Dan says:

      Yeah, now on 38 in the 2nd quarter, looking good.

    • Rocksta_ says:

      Hope so mate. I’ve already had Answerth and Balta spud it up, although hopefully Balta’s score will drop out as I have 19 available.

      • Russty_ says:

        Same Rocksta, Burgess, Balta and Answerth here, let the least worthy fall by the wayside, some nice bonus 'much above predicted scores' in there this week too though 🙂

        • Rocksta_ says:

          Yes, but dickhead me traded out Walsh and Gibbons this week. Talk about poor timing.

          • Russty_ says:

            Pretty hard to know these things in advance mate, Walsh looked to be declining, maybe tired…Gibbons was mr 60 in the last 4 weeks.
            If it benefits your overall result in the end, then moving them on isn't a bad thing, will just hurt this week.

          • Lazza says:

            Surely they were next weeks trade ..

            • Rocksta_ says:

              Yes, but I wanted to get Coniglio in this week as he’s cheap and only has a BE of 22.

    • Derek says:

      I was hoping to get at least 100 between Answerth and Burgess. Only have 18 this week.

      Burgess making up for Aneswerth

      • Russty_ says:

        Let's hope he keeps going Derek, if he has a good score this game, could even lift a bit going fwd like Balta did, before he turned back into Balta. 😉

      • JugHead says:

        I only have 18 as well. I'm trying to figure out whether I do a mid round trade to bring in an Adelaide or Giants premo to flush Answerths score out of my team

        • Derek says:

          Take his 33. Get premos next round off their byes. Stick to your plan.

          Mind you Milera is very tempting at his price as a top 8 defender.

      • Derek says:

        No. Burgess gone down in 3rd quarter. 64 and on his way to 80+

        Think he is done for game

        • TommyC99 says:

          Crap. Was relying on him next week. At least he scored well i guess

          • Russty_ says:

            He's back on again now, maybe only a cramp, on 68…woohoo Burgess!

            • TommyC99 says:

              Spent majority of the quarter off unfortunately. Take 71 every day of the week though. Reckon he has earned his spot for next week so hoping he gets up

  82. Russty_ says:

    Gawd….this game is shit compared to the last one, which was full of excitement and tension,and some outstanding individual performances.
    I reckon the Gold Coast team should be scrapped for maybe another Victorian team, or a team from Darwin, that'd be killer…a Darwin team, there'd be some serious talent in there..and some great opportunities for some of the talented locals.

    • Rocksta_ says:

      Agreed. I’m finding it very hard to watch. I even flicked over to the movies to see what was on. Next game should be a ripper though

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      A Darwin team would be sensational. It wouldnt lack pace!! LOL The place is just not big enough yet. Just 150,000 people live there. It needs to get to the size of Geelong I reckon. 250,000 would do it and a decent stadium. TIO would need to get a major upgrade.

      • Russty_ says:

        Plenty of money there though Hawk for them to bring in whoever they needed to bolster their ranks, give em the same monetary and trade concessions GWS and the Suns had in their starting years.

        • Holty01 says:

          I think it is hard enough to find serious talent to want to move to the Gold Coast. It would be 3 times harder in Darwin. No one with any serious talent would want to play there.

          • Russty_ says:

            They would if they enjoy a largely alcoholic population, sweaty ass humid weather and monsoonal rain Holty, not to mention the ever present chance of being eaten by a Dinosaur…lol

            • Nifty says:

              We’ve got the best weather in 🇦🇺 up here..

              • Russty_ says:

                What's the deal with your Hotels up there Nifty?…they all smell like wet damp carpet.
                I think it's cause they have wet damp carpet 🙂
                That being said, when the rest of the country runs out of water in the future, Darwin will probably become one of the last refuges.
                They'd better not run out of Beer though, otherwise it'll be unbridled chaos.

    • Beezneez says:

      No offence Russty but I think there are enough Victorian teams dare I say too many. Some of the game's greatest playets have come from Tassie e.g Royce Hart, Darrel Baldock, Ian Stewart.

      • Russty_ says:

        None taken mate, I hear ya…Brent Crosswell was a star too, I bought his set of Golf Clubs off him a couple of years ago :), still have em now.
        Sadly, he's struck down with a cruel illness these days.

    • Disco Stu says:

      Gold Coast to Become the Darwin Survivors
      North the Tassie Devils
      Melbourne will need to take back the Fucshia’s moniker

    • Lazza says:

      I had Burgess and effen Corbett.. my bl00dy grandmother could score 10 SC points . at least they didn’t get 41 each … Corbett’s score drops out for me .. thank F

    • DavidC says:

      We need less Vic teams not more. Move one of them to Tassie. GC has been totally mismanaged, it has the population to succeed.

  83. Beezneez says:

    Currently have 20 on field and need to make at least one of my planned trades to allow for 3 each of the next two weeks. Do you think I should trade in Williams for Whitfield or Parker to Gardner for dpp with Burgess for the following rounds. If I don't trade Whitfield it gives me another look at Williams who has a BE of 145 and decide next week netween him and Sicily. Williams this week allows a better score over one of the spuds – currently appeats to be Corbett.

  84. Justin says:

    Lloyd in for Greene, no Hately *sad face

  85. TBone_9 says:

    Greene out…. Hately not in. Makes that decision easy then

    • Russty_ says:

      Hately shagged the Coach's Daughter for sure!…probably knocked her up too.
      Or ran over the Coach's Cat…and did a hit and run…on Camera, lol

  86. GreendaleFC says:

    I made the risky call to go Bailey Scott to Hately just before the North game. Why does Leon Cameron hate me.

  87. Holty01 says:

    Oops I took the punt on Hatley just before the North vs GC game as Scott was to be moved on. Was right they weren’t going to risk Greene but found no info that Lloyd would replace him.😩

    • GWS just dont like him Send him to the dees or sainters .They will give him a go .All is not lost though Holty You were getting nothing out of Scott

      • TheLostBoys says:

        The certainly don't seem to want to give him a go – think he will push to leave for more opportunity next year?

  88. Shake_n_bake says:

    Im just happy the adel capt got a gig!! Now I’ll wait for the tag!

  89. TelescopicCox says:

    I’ve gone early on some rookies to maximise my premos throughout the bye. I’ll either sky rocket up the rankings or blow my season. All or nothing

  90. TommyC99 says:

    Bring in Sicily or Ryan?

  91. hedski says:

    Come on Jelly, missed Danger and Cripps as captain so it's all on you.

  92. Holty01 says:

    Well a massive balls up by me with bringing in Hatley has forced my hand by using 2 more trades to avoid Corbett’s score. My strength this year has been holding trades but wasting trades like this will see me plummet quickly. Hopefully everything works out next 2 weeks with no injuries so I can try and make up for this poor mistake.

    • Sam_01 says:

      How many left hotly?

    • Derek says:

      What made you bring hately in?

      • Holty01 says:

        Had to bring in someone as I had a few injuries from last week. No other rookies playing this week and Scott was the only player I had who I could trade that wasn’t getting games. I knew Greene wouldn’t play and all reports (even from the GWS camp) said Hatley would be his replacement. I took the punt in hope to only use 1 more trade to avoid a donut. Bad move in the end.

        • Derek says:

          Lack of rookies, believe it or not, I traded Burgess in this week to field 18, even thought about Naish

          • Holty01 says:

            Really regretting it now Derek. Could of made my same trades without Hatley. Oh well, you win some you lose some.

  93. Lazza says:

    Tom Lynch a late out for the Crows

  94. Defying_Madness says:

    I am licking my pork chops thinking about Sloanes price post bye

  95. hedski says:

    Not sure my eyes were working, did Tarantula have 16 possies in the first QTR? Wow.

  96. Derek says:

    I hate De Boer. Does this to my players every week

  97. nickgonzalez771 says:

    I was really questioning my choice to bring in Taranto last week after seeing Jelly and Gonigliog smash it out of the park – perhaps not such a bad choice after all?

  98. Fearthebeard says:

    Wtf is b Smith doing? Had to reverse trades on him this week when Whitfield injured ffs spud scoring

    • Russty_ says:

      He's proceeding to lay a big fat turd in our backlines this week Beard….bastard!

    • silversovereign says:

      I planned to trade him before injury Armageddon hot about 3 weeks ago. I will turf him after round 14.

  99. Russty_ says:

    Congiliogs has become a real yoyo, he used to be fairly consistent….don't think I'd want him in my final mid top 8

    • JEL says:

      If you have him it's a tough call whether to keep him.
      Games like tonight make you shake your head.

  100. Russty_ says:

    Kelly hasn't done shit in the first 11 minutes of the last quarter, except go backwards.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I just saw that Russty, 104 at 3qt and now nearly the end of the 4th and he's on 100

      • Russty_ says:

        I think he just got back to where he started the quarter John, mucho dissappointo for his owners.

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          Had the VC on him, not that it matters much, I'm looking at being wiped out during the byes, I have 18,14,17 for the three bye rounds.

    • Shake_n_bake says:

      Only 1 touch in the last

    • Finnius says:

      Captain hurts. I thought he was in for a big one at three quarter time. Exact same story with my VC…

    • Lazza says:

      even with that Russty he should be on 130.. Sloane has 15 less possessions and gets a higher score .. watched his score jump 30 points in 2 minutes .. just bullshit that last 5 minutes gets double/triple scores ..

      • KSinny says:

        It was Sloanes impact that scored him those extra points, got 2 crucial goals in the last as well as a few contested possies.

      • Russty_ says:

        Yeah that's a big discrepancy Laz…must've been a fair chunk of his possessions ineffective?

      • JEL says:

        Sorry Lazza, but if you don't understand that, then Supercoach is not the game for you.
        Supercoach scoring is ALL about context in the game.
        If you want simple points for action scoring, you're better off with AFL Fantasy

        • Lazza says:

          Yeh good on ya JEL, J is obviously for Jerk… I get it .. doesn’t make it less frustrating..

    • Holty01 says:

      I bought him in and put the C on him. Was happy at 3/4 time. Not anymore.

  101. Shake_n_bake says:

    Cant believe Sloane hit triple figures

  102. Big G says:

    Is it just me or did williams have a 60 point quarter for doing nothing?

  103. KSinny says:

    What a second half from SloaneDog! Disgusted with Kelly's last quarter especially since I had the C on him.

    • Russty_ says:

      Yeah skinny, that's gotta be heartbreaking Kelly's non scoring in the last quarter, I would've pegged him for 130+ easy.

  104. Sam_01 says:

    Geee having Williams and crouch on the pine for the last few, great to have them back
    Traded Whitfield to laird, feel like he was robbed just a touch
    Bsmith well and truly in the firing line

  105. COREYSC says:

    What to do with B.Smith now? Do we have to trade him before Hore?

  106. Yeahnah says:

    Not sure what Leon was thinking in the last, sending Taranto to the wing and keeping Coniglio forward.

  107. Shake_n_bake says:

    ROB will keep his spot next week!!

    • Lazza says:

      Should keep it all year .. won more clearances than any other player.. wonder what his starting price will be next year …. could be the next Grundy..
      How poor was Mummy ??

      • Russty_ says:

        He was pretty bad Lazza, gave a bunch of frees away and got beaten by a rookie Ruck. Sauce could still slide in to take his (ROB's) glory away though.

        • Derek says:

          Mummy had an opportunity to destroy Sloane at one stage when he was standing under a mark. Mummy’s got soft 😉

          ROB was very good. I traded him out this week thinking Jacobs would be back next week, the week when I could use him finally when Max and Grundy rest. Oh well.

  108. KSinny says:

    How's everyone going this week? I'm doing pretty decent on 1400 with 6 to go, hopefully I can get to 2000.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Stuffed, doubt I will win any of my league games,I have 18 on field but most of my opponents have 20 plus and either Danger or Cripps as their VC. Looking at around 1850 if every thing goes well tomorrow.

    • Holty01 says:

      1850-1900
      Kelly with the C 😵

      • Derek says:

        You might have just an ‘above average’ score this week like us mere mortals

        How is the next 2 weeks looking? I have been so worried about round 13, it’s looking good now.

        • Holty01 says:

          I have planned well for the rd13 bye as thought it would be the round to make a move. Still looks good but those injuries for this week really forced my hand. Obviously Grundy and Gawn an issue but rest of my lines should be maxed. My biggest issue this year has been my failure to select the right vc and c choices. I think I’ve had 5 rounds that I’ve failed to hit 110 which is not good. This week missing out on Cripps and even Danger will cost me a few.

          • JohnDJ59 says:

            Hey Holty, my VC and C choices are about the only thing that has kept me from having a complete disaster of a season. Apart from this round I have mainly kept to Cripps, Fyfe, Danger and Grundy as my VC and C options. Six times I have been able to use my VC score, with scores between 124 to 165 and six times I had to use my C choice for scores between 101 to 169. I've had two scores under 110.

    • Rocksta_ says:

      1354 with 6 to go, but Balta’s 29 will drop out as I have 19 playing. Should get close to 2000.

    • Sam_01 says:

      1440 with heeny/treloar/Grundy/Gawn/heeney/lloyd to go

    • silversovereign says:

      Was looking fantastic before the crows giants game, but cogs, Cameron, Smith, laird and hopper all underperformed. Probably 1800 at best.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Sitting on 1427 with Lloyd, Crisp, Grundy, Gawn, Hore, and Oskar Baker to come. Hoping to hit 2000-2050.

      • Derek says:

        I’m not conceding defeat yet, although it is looking unlikely. I have Oliver and Heeney vs your Crips and Lloyd plus 90pts.

        Your VC Cripps was a master stroke plus having Gibbons go 100+ and not having to use Corbett’s score was handy. I only had 18 this week with Hurn and Stocker out.

        I might push 1950 if everything goes good.

        • Shake_n_bake says:

          That 90pts it’s like an extra good player.

          • Derek says:

            I know, I’m about $13 odds to win.

            I’m feeling buyer remorse already for getting Cogniglio this week. Had enough coin to go Hayns to Cogs. Could have, should have gone Libba to anyone but I held Libba to cover next week.

            • Shake_n_bake says:

              Cogniglio this year like our Melbourne weather

              • Derek says:

                I did the maths, needed a value player. He was very poor last night

                • TOPHAWK1 says:

                  He will bounce back Derek. Coniglio may have felt lousy last night. It happens. Expect a big one next week mate. Bloke is a jet.💥

                  • Russty_ says:

                    What's Heeney's excuse?…getting sick of that muppet

                    • Derek says:

                      I don’t think Heeney is a midfielder. His best scores when he plays mainly forward. Swans have to win games though or have ball forward a lot

    • JugHead says:

      Looking at about 1850 which Im happy with… only having 18 starters this week and a couple of ordinary scores.

    • TelescopicCox says:

      1071 with 9 to go – Grundy, Gawn, Crisp, Treloar, Baker, Lloyd, Heeney, Hore and Moore

    • hedski says:

      Struggling, only have 17 playing.
      1353 with Jelly captain, I have Petracelle, Grundy, Gawn and Angus to play.
      Might crack 1700 if I'm lucky.
      Clark, Answorth, Smith and Cogs hurt.
      Was very pleasantly surprised with Gibbo tonning up.

      • JEL says:

        Very similar, with 1373 + Telly as captain and 4 others to play.
        Projected to get about 1750

    • Beezneez says:

      1468 from 13 with 8 to play – three to drop out. Next two weeks will be challenging though.

    • Shake_n_bake says:

      1256 with 7 left only 18players so maybe lucky to get 1900 like Derek if only stocker and Hurn played.

    • Russty_ says:

      sitting on 1584 with 4 to come and Balta's 29 to drop out, bummer Stocker was out cause then Answerth's score could've been left out too.

    • COREYSC says:

      Projected 2,090 but I don’t think Gawn and Grundy will get their
      Projected scores so I hope I can crack 2,000

    • SC_Donkey says:

      997/10 with 8 players to play today plus 159(VC) to add, hoping to get 1900+

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Sitting on 1607 with Gawn, Grundy, Hore and Baker left to play. Hopefully I can hit 2000. Screwed up my captain options and went T Kelly VC then got greedy and put the C on Neale so I could have gone higher if I played that better.

  109. Worpedo says:

    Worth getting in Rothem this week (trade Hayes to him)?
    Only have 17 playing currently

  110. JohnDJ59 says:

    Stuffed up my VC-C this weekend, I usually share it between, Cripps, Fyfe, Danger and Grundy since I traded him in. It has worked very well for me up until now, so why would I change it, I'm asking myself exactly that question.

  111. NoLanguage96 says:

    Cunners. How this bloke is in 3% of teams is staggering.

    • Holty01 says:

      I think most think he will drop off (myself included) as this has been a once off season. Never done this before but he just keeps getting the job done.

      • NoLanguage96 says:

        He's always scored ok but not above 110 as consistently as this year. Can't see him dropping off tbh averages more clearances than anyone else in the comp

    • Finnius says:

      I brought him in this week. Hopefully he keeps going! so consistent.

  112. dontblushbaby says:

    Expect Ollie Wines to be back next week after good game yesterday in the SANFL, will impact Rockliff if he plays ?

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Highly likely mate. I punted Rocky 2 weeks ago when he didnt get up for Shanghai. With Wines coming back, he will still see midfield time, but it may be a lot less.

  113. KSinny says:

    Lockhart to Rotham? Means I won't have to get Answerth 33

  114. JugHead says:

    Anyone else surprised the swans are favourites in the head to head betting with WCE?
    Late out coming up for the eagles maybe?

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Elliott Yeo did not fly out on Friday with his team mates. Not sure if he flew out on a later flight, but rumours have it that Yeo will not play. Just noticed that Yeo is now confirmed out.

    • TommyC99 says:

      Think its the eagles record in sydney. Its shocking

  115. iLoveNMFC says:

    Grundy or Gawn captain?

  116. DavidC says:

    Lobb is out with stress fractures in his 4th metatarsal of his right foot.

  117. Shake_n_bake says:

    Rotham has the last mark and kick for the qtr not even a possession added. 🤔

  118. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Llllloooooooyyydddd!! Another master class by Lloyd. Only picked him up 3 weeks ago, and boy he is seriously tearing things up. No regrets. Good boy Lloydy! 💪😍👍

  119. The Bont says:

    If your captain is someone with a bye will the extra points from VC and emergency come in after the round is finished?

  120. hedski says:

    There goes my tipping for the round, only have 2 outta 5 so far.
    Great win by the swannies.

  121. Rocksta_ says:

    Oliver in doubt for tmr

  122. Stupid Coach says:

    I have the VC on Cripps and switched the C to Macrae who is not playing this week. Just confirming that I will get the double points for Cripps

  123. Steeeve says:

    One game left, I'll be disappointed if I don't break the 2000 mark, what's going to be par this round?

    • hedski says:

      About 300 more than me Steeeve

      • Steeeve says:

        I'm having a good week… apart from fielding Corbett… and Answerth. Yuck. Thank Jock for Gibbons, Walsh, Cripps, C Danger, Lloyd etc

    • Holty01 says:

      I might get to 1900 which I think is fantastic when not having Cripps or Danger as your C. I think the C selection will be the difference this week between a 1800-1900 and a potential 2000+

      • The Bont says:

        Fielding 22 this week for myself and im looking at a projected of 2149 with Danger as captain

        • Holty01 says:

          Nice Bont. How is the rest of your bye rounds going?

          • The Bont says:

            17 next week and 16 the week after. But I still have 16 trades so I will make 3 this week and the next week so i can get 18 on the field. I am playing for cash league wins so I needed as many points this week as I could. Im vsing 2 bottom teams next week and the week after.
            P.S. Keep up the great work Holty, your killing in the ranks

  124. BoltonsBlues says:

    1800 with Grundy, Gawn and Hore to go (will drop the 10 from Corbett and 33 from Answerth)… and im going to lose my cash league H2H 🙁

  125. KSinny says:

    Projected 2015 atm with Gawn, Grundy and Hore to go. Unfortunately could have had a much better week if it wasn't for a 27, 33, 36, 48 and Jelly as C.

    • Sam_01 says:

      2080 myself doubt grundy and Gawn will go to their projected tho

      • Swans2012 says:

        Nice scores! I’m looking at 1900-2000, yeo out cost me a shot at 2050+. Good to see the swannies put on a show!

        • Derek says:

          Swans were good. Down 3. Buddy looking a threat and Reid getting plenty of it.

          Almost that time of the year to think about getting Franklin.

          Hurn out hurt me. Had to take Aneswerth 33. Around 1950ish.

          • Swans2012 says:

            I’ve already got him unfortunately, bought him in when I thought he’d turned the corner just pre injury, ah well nice to finally get some points out of him, he’s cheap, but I’m not convinced he’ll return to last couple years scoring yet. I’m going to send him to f7 soon…..

  126. COREYSC says:

    Last two weeks I’ve played it safe
    Took Grundys 124
    Took Dangerfield 149

    But my skippers before hand as a result decide to pump out mammoth scores Gawn 158 and Cripps 194

    Will I change my ways no chance haha

  127. Connor says:

    Think I might go early this week on:
    Hayes > Bewley
    D. Moore > Gardner
    This frees up cash for 2 upgrades next week (plus another downgrade). Thoughts?

    • Rocksta_ says:

      I want to use my last trade to go from Hayes to Bewely as well but am just worried about his JS. He looks like he’s got talent but he hasn’t exactly set the world on fire.

  128. JugHead says:

    Trading question…….I've used 2 of my 3 trades this week and held one back for emergencies. I only have 18 on field.
    I'd like to wait until Hore, Grundy and Oliver are safely under way, then use the last trade on some bye players to get a jump start for next week.
    Can I trade through the last game? Does anyone know when all trading stops this week?

    • The Bont says:

      You should be able to trade bye player to another bye player

    • Holty01 says:

      I think you will need to do that trade b4 the last game starts. Not 100% sure however.

    • JugHead says:

      ok……I might do it 10 min before the bounce to be safe.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        I think that would be the safest way JugHead, I would have thought once the last game starts it would be lockout.

    • JugHead says:

      Done. As long as nobody does a hamstring running through the banner, Im all good. Thanks all.

    • JugHead says:

      Learning point for me and others. The final game is under way and all bye players are locked out. Something to remember for next week.

  129. COREYSC says:

    so after the bye rounds I’ll Have 13 trades left with Walsh and Naish as my last two onfield rookies left i’ll Still have B.Crouch, Z.Williams and B.Smith but I think Z.Williams will be a keeper. Is that a good position to be in? Needing to make 5 more upgrades?

  130. Nathan says:

    In for a huge one this week. 2200+

  131. Sam_01 says:

    Probably a bit biased as a treloar owner but god they are harsh on him on the clangers count, kicks out in front of pies player and a dees player just beats him to it —> Clanger
    On the break only way is fwd kicks to a one on one pies player loses —> Clanger
    Ineffective disposal yes but hardly clangers

    • Shake_n_bake says:

      So true. Some players just win it in tight and try to get it fwd at any cost to gain meters for their team and clear congestion that should be rewarded

      • Sam_01 says:

        Yeah I don’t see how a pack centre clearance that is just bombed into the fwd 50 then a defender to marks it, don’t see how it is a Clanger on the kickers behalf

  132. The unsullied says:

    How do we get rid of Hore he just keeps getting better?

  133. Sam_01 says:

    Trades running thin
    Smith/duursma/Walsh to go
    10 in the bank no cash no great rookies on bench Answerth most valuable
    Are Neale and hurn absolute must haves considering the rest of the season? Hurn id day yes but I could save 70k and grab Sloane or something instead of Neale

  134. TBone_9 says:

    2048 this week, thank goodness for having 20 onfield to lose Balta and Answerths scores. Very worried about fielding enough players this week though, might take me 3 trades just to get 18 playing. Makes it more difficult too with Hore scoring so well.. how’d everyone else fare this week?

    • Sam_01 says:

      2068 for me bone moved up 1835 spots to 2670

    • Lazza says:

      Hi TB9.. 2057 for me .. gotta thank Capt Red Beard … good enough to win 9 of 10 .. however, I will need to bring in 2 players to field a competitive team this week… can’t afford a 10 and 33 this time …

    • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

      Yep scored about the same
      Jelly as capt.
      Happy.
      10 wins
      Made up the ground I lost last week
      Traded shocker for fyfe.
      Kept Walsh.
      If rooks named should get 18 on deck
      Happy.
