SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 14

Published by Kev on

Worst. Round. Ever. Rest assured that I was on the internet within minutes registering my disgust throughout the world.

Round 14 is finally the end of this tortuous 3-week period known as the byes, but more importantly it’s the last of three trades in a week. Take advantage of this if you can and cut any dead wood in your side. Start thinking of having mid/fwd and def/mid swings in place for when the inevitable late year ‘general soreness’ hits and trades are either gone or at a premium. 

With two thirds of the comp now off their bye there’s a heap of premium options available for pick up. Which ones do we target? Well Patch, Damo, and Lek dived right in on the podcast this week to find ours and yours best options on each line. Snaring a late season rookie for much needed cash gen is a huge advantage now, keep tabs on who is dominating at the lower level with Barron’s Around the Grounds. Get your all important captain fix with Damo and don’t forget to get Statty’s beautiful looking cheat sheet into ya. 

The News

For tonight, the Eagles have made six changes to the side that was humbled by Sydney in round 12. Shannon Hurn and Elliot Yeo are the big name inclusions, and there’s a debut for Jarrod Cameron (MID/FWD – 117.3k). Josh Rotham and Willie Rioli are among the outs. Essendon are replacing the injured Jake Stringer with Mitch Brown.  

JPK returns for the Swans tonight and the Hawks have recalled Jarryd Roughead after a few weeks in the twos. Ben ‘Pinchy’ Stratton misses with suspension and Tom McCartin has been dropped. Does this set things up for a Buddy classic? 

No change for Freo on Saturday arvo against the Dees. Jake Lever is injured again as is Michael Hibberd. While Jay Lockhart gets a timely recall to help those def/mid benches. St. Kilda coach, Alan Richardson, has finally finished his rebuild of Dan Hannebery’s legs and he’ll make his club debut. Jake Carlisle will also make his first appearance for the year. Brisbane have dropped Archie Smith among three changes, Allen Christensen will play his first game since round 5. Port Adelaide have gone whack! Dropping Paddy Ryder, Justin Westhoff, and Sam Powell-Pepper for their clash against the Cats. Ollie Wines and Brad Ebert makes their returns. Charlie Dixon has been resurrected yet again and will line up at full-forward. Joel Garner (DEF – 123.9k) will play his second game. Geelong have replaced the injured Esava with Darcy Fort (RUC – 117.3k), who is on the bubble.     

There’ll be at least 4 changes between the Dogs and the Pies on Sunday. Libba and bubble boy Ryan Gardner are out for the Dogs, as is Bailey Dale. Jaidyn Stephensen is out for Collingwood. There are three new names on team sheets. Rhylee West (MID – 117.3k), Max Lynch (RUC – 123.9k), and Isaac Quaynor (DEF – 153.3k) 

The House of Evil

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

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

Can I go now? (Trade bait)

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

As our teams reach full premium and we set up for the run home, you absolutely want the the best midfielder and probably a top 5 player overall in your team at the end of the year. That man is Lachie Neale and you need to get him in your side if you don’t already. At 578k this is the cheapest he’s been at all year, which is remarkable considering he started the year priced at 607k. He’s had a few “quiet” weeks has Lachie, but you can’t keep a guy averaging 123 down for long. With Brisbane pushing for a top 8 berth he’ll be a big part of that.  

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

From a fantasy point of view Port Adelaide’s moves at the selection table made this slate a lot more spicier. Only .8 separates these two sides in points for after 12 rounds, while Port concede an average of 34DS more per game. It should be a fairly even contest.

RUC

All three rucks are in play tonight and all three have RUC/FWD status. I suspect the solo rucking Scott Lycett (FWD – 10.2k) to be most popular, while Darcy Fort (FWD – 6.4k) should have no problems hitting value if he can hit the scoresheet. This makes Rhys Stanley (FWD – 11.4k) a contrarian play. Rhys has shown a hundred upside twice this year  and with multiple 15k studs available in the midfield, he is not a bad play if you want to make your lineup a bit different.

DEF

Both these sides are fairly stingy in limiting opposition defenders. Looking right down the bottom of the list, Joel Garner (5.7k) had 11 kicks and 5 marks in his debut, if he can back that up he is a 10x value pick. Dan Houston (11.1k) and Xavier Duursma (MID – 11k) are in great touch, in games where Duursma has 5 or marks he’s gone 71, 102, 90, 84, 99, 97, 86. Tom Stewart (13.3k) is Mr. Consistency but his lack of ceiling puts me off him. 

FWD

Robbie Gray (MID – 10.8k) is way too cheap for mine. He should stay in the midfield rotations even with Wines back. Port have largely been solid against key forwards this year, but have given up recent three figure scores to Jesse Hogan and Jack Gunston. Tom Hawkins (11.1k) has kicked 20.4 in his past 5 and is priced well if you think he can get on top of Port Adelaide’s defence. Patrick Dangerfield (MID – 15.4k) is always in play, his record at Adelaide Oval is stuff of legends. Averaging 124 in his past 5 at the venue. Brad Ebert (MID – 13k) returns tonight and was in pretty good touch before his injury. 

MID

Port’s midfield is all over the shop this week, decoding that will go a long way towards nailing your midfield picks. They have also given up some huge totals to opposition mids this year, and my game script is that Geelong should put the Power away tonight. Tim Kelly (14.9k) is a freak with a huge ceiling, as is Mitch Duncan (15k). Like Danger, Travis Boak (15.4k) has a brilliant record at Adelaide Oval this year, averaging 119DS. He’s been named on the ball alongside Wines. Karl Amon (9.6k) is still a good value pick if you really want to cram in as many studs as you can.

TommyC99

Hey Kev, another great write up once again.

Got 4 options this week, would love some feedback! Thinking Duursma – D Clarke is a no brainer so each option includes it. Let me know if i'm wrong?

Got 12 trades left. Can post my team upon request. Sorry if its confusing!

1. Walsh, Parker – Treloar, TKelly

2. Parker – TKelly

3. ROB, Walsh – Neale and Lloyd/TKelly

4. Walsh – Neale (wouldnt need to downgrade)

Cheers fellas!

BrownlowBoy

3. Get Neale and Timmy Kelly in ASAP.

More points on field.

SC_Kev7

Cheers, Tommy. Agree on option 4, but option 1 has merit too. I think Neale's b.e is around his average this week, so if he doesn't go mental against the Saints his price won't move a lot

TommyC99

Cheers Kev! 1 and 4 are my two most preferred options at this stage, It basically comes down to whats a bigger priority, punting Parker or getting Neale?

ALso if you are to pick option 4, would you do the downgrade too? Or just hold out?

SC_Kev7

Yeah, I’d still do it. Clarke looking like a high scoring rook, you don’t let guys like that pass

Tiger

4 is the best option. Rob still has more money to make, then grab whoever you need.

TommyC99

Thanks mate! As a pies man im thinking about Treloar as a POD to move up the ranks, but is Neale a must own?

Wayne King

Trade out Gibbons or Stocker for D Clarke, Gibbons generates more money but could still make more and is playing while Stocker is injured but could come back and make more money. Have enough cash to still do 2 upgrades elsewhere trading either out.

SC_Kev7

Stocker still 2-3 weeks away according to injury report. I'd give Gibbons the flick if you have him on field, Stocker if both are on your bench

Wayne King

Good advice, cheers

Sarah

In: Neale, Treloar, Logue
Out: Duursma, Drew, Walsh

Time to make some moves but have had to be tactical to get Treloar, can afford any mid up to 560k but need the cash for future weeks, my rookies are dire!

JohnDJ59

Looks like good trades Sarah, I'll probably be moving Drew and Walsh on in the next few weeks.

hedski

If the Hoff doesn't come back next week I'm in big trouble, fwd bench is Gardener and Young……
Cheers again Kev.

SC_Kev7

I'm filthy Hoff is out, hedski. With Dead Man Dixon back at CHF Hoff would've been free to roam up the ground. Bloody Ken!!

hedski

Yeah it hurts Kev.
Not sure if I should go ahead and get Neale and pray Hoff is back next week or waste a trade upgrading him and miss Neale.
Doing my head in.

SC_Kev7

I’ve been close to cutting him anyway, but I’ll hold this week. Sights set on Ziebell after his bye

DavidC

Rotham's ownership is at 11.8% and still people are going early on Naish/Logue. Might wait one more week. I've already got Mr Hinge on my defensive bench.

SC_Kev7

Logue is safe. Replaced Pearce who is done for the year. I’d wait on Naish though, Short could be back round 15

Dylan

I do t think Short coming back effects him, as he’s been playing more half forward from what I’ve seen

Dylan

Don’t*

Brn

I know its wrong but im downgrading to naish anyway. Have duursma as cover back there and upgrades must be made. Ranked highly so maybe not suggesting for all

Pranav

Lloyd ryan williams Hore Smith answerth (burgees Gardner)
Fyfe Cripps macrae taranto brouch dusty walsh libba (stocker baker bewley)
Gawn Grundy (ROB)
Dunkley Kelly danger boak daniel heeney (young bines)
16 trades left and 111k in the bank
What should I do

SC_Kev7

What moves you got in mind mate?

Brn

Asking what should i do makes it a bit hard and at the least wont get you many replies.

Love the forward line. Its complete.

Hate the backline. Answerth has to go soon.

Midfield is unique but pretty average. Libba and baker are the priorities there- not so much Walsh given your position. B crouch could be an alright keeper after all.

All things considered, you need cash. Baker out this week is the only certainty. Trade him to clarke and see what else you can do. If you come up with some potential moves let us know. Goodluck mate

Brn

Just realised that you would likely have the melbourne baker, so scrap that. Really need to generate cash by downgrading

Pranav

Happy with rucks and forward line. Extremely light down back and lack those Uber premos in midifield. Thinking libba walsh and smith to Clarke Stewart and neale

Pranav

Planning on libba walsh and smith to Clarke Stewart and neale

Harvey

bont worthy selection over Neale? The 50k saved may be the difference in affording Lloyd next week

Brn

I like merrett more. Bont was the bomb earlier in the year, but his most recent form – even with libba out – is underwhelming for a super prem.

I still rate him on par with gaff! And ge really foes play better at marvel so the potential is there

CalebCripps922

Walsh to
Bont
Merrett
Parker
Gaff
???

redherringfc

I’m in the same boat and am sold on Merrett. So probably any of the other 3.

Dylan

Who would you pick out of Tom Stewart, Sicily and Rich, have to decide between those three for a premium defender

Rick

Stewart. Most consistent

Nozzy

Walsh Rocky and Setterfield to Gaff Clarke and Marshall?

Thoughts..

Dave

Tossing up whether to trade B.Smith (Adelaide) to either M.walters, C.Daniel or T.Stewart?

Going Stewart will leave me with Hore as D6 and Setter field F6(will be looking to get Hurn in the next few weeks when he drops in price to complete backline)

Going one of the forwards will complete that line but leave Hore as D5 and Naish D6 (again will look to get Hurn in a few weeks).

Currently have gone Walters because I like Freo's run better than the doggies but leaves me with only $2k in the bank… Am happy with Hore being a D6 for the rest of the year once I get in Hurn. My only other upgrade required after that is M8. Will have 10 trades left, $2k in bank. Thoughts?

JohnDJ59

I traded Walters in last week and am also keeping Hore as my D6.

Russty_

Great call getting Walters last week for 476k John..seems to be delivering the goods nicely

JohnDJ59

Happy with Walters, Russty, it was just who I used get him in that I stuffed up. I was going to trade out Drew, I could just afford it, but decided I liked his swing, so traded out Billings, who until the previous two weeks had been happy to hold. Drew doesn't look like getting a game soon, still an emergency, so he might end up going next week, since I will need all my rookies playing.

Russty_

Don't look back mate, billings could still end up spudding it…he has before plenty of times, that could be his highest score last week of his career ever. Drew could still be a good downgrader for ya to finish your team.

Bob

Out smith Scott and Parker in Logie Clarke and boat.

Plan on upgrading Walsh to Neale next week. Any thoughts on this?

RealDealNeale

What to do with ROB? He's my current R2 but I had always planned to move up to Gawn

11 trades, 90k bank

DEF: Hurn Lloyd Blakely Hore Smith Williams (Naish, Gardner)
MID: Fyfe Neale Oliver Bont Brayshaw Cripps B.Crouch Duursma (Setterfield Bewley Stocker)
R: Grundy ROB (Bines)
F: Dunkley Kelly Danger Boak DeGoey Marshall (Schultz Young)

Opt 1:
Setterfield > Clarke
Stocker > Hind
ROB > Gawn

Opt 2:
Setterfield > Clarke
Duursma > Macrae

Opt 3:
Setterfield > Clarke

Look at Gawn in a few weeks, and maybe bring in Sloane next week

Blue

1

Connor

Trade ROB? Will free up cash for upgrades over the next few rounds…

TheBest

I would agree..<img src=&quotcomment image" width="1"/>

Maverick_

ROB to Fort is definately an option to consider now he's named..
cash grab and If Fort can string a few games together a decent cow

JohnDJ59

He still as a lot of money to make, hold for now.

Streety

Oliver vs Sloane anyone?

Big G

Sloane proven performer, but Oliver can put out the odd massive score due to being in a dud team.

NoLanguage96

Oliver

BoltonsBlues

Walsh, Libba, Lockhart > Pendles, Oliver and Clarke with 190k still left over so can have pretty much any midfielder i want, ive already got Kelly, Fyfe, Cripps, Neale, Macrae

G.C.

Got a bit of a conundrum community, and could do with some advice. I've got both Goldy and ROB, and I'm looking to cut one loose this round:

DEF: Hurn, Williams, Sicily, Crisp, Hore, Moore (Answerth, Gardner)
MID: Fyfe, Cripps, Neale, Bont, Oliver, M. Crouch, Walsh (Gibbons, Bewley, Baker)
RUC: Grundy, Goldy (ROB)
FWD: Boak, Kelly, Danger, Marshall, Worpel, Young (Corbett, Bines)

1) Goldy, Walsh, Moore -> Gawn, Lloyd, Clarke + $2,100
2) Goldy, Walsh, ROB -> Gawn, Dunkley, Clarke + $69,800
3) Goldy, Walsh, Moore -> Lloyd, Dunkley, Clarke + $111,000

I'm thinking 1. I know Gawn is so expensive, but his BE is only 109 and he's a SC machine. Dunkley would be nice, but I still don't trust him with Mr. Magnets for the whole season. I can fix the forward line next week, maybe bring in Daniel if I have to.

TBone_9

Gday fellas! Annoyed that Westhoff has been dropped after putting up with his mediocrity since bringing him in. Assuming no carnage at selections tonight I’m thinking Hayes, Stocker and Balta to Clarke, T. Stewart and B. Riach. Riach just as a basement priced mid/fwd swing who has the most Sunday games coming up. Leaves me enough in the kitty to go Duursma up to Sloane next week and B. Smith up to hopefully Laird. Might be a few $ off of getting Laird in which case I’d probably grab L. Weller as a POD. What are everyone else’s plans for this/next week? 🙂

Derek

Just getting Lloyd and Neale, nothing much really, might help a bit.

NoLanguage96

Libba > Fyfe
B Scott > D Clarke

TommyC99

Hey fellas, appreciate that help earlier from Kev and BB. Just have one more question. I am aiming to get both Neale and Treloar due to their cheap price tags. I can either go Walsh up to Neale but NOT have the funds to go Parker – Kelly OR Go Walsh – Treloar so i ca do the Kelly trade. Whichever way i go i plan on owning both treloar and Neale eventually anyway!

pat cripps

out: setterfield, baker & b smith

in:
clarke, h andrews and c daniel
or
hind, rampe and marshall
or
clarke, marshall and rampe

thoughts community ?

James

A.

Clarke a must have but is marshall and andrews doable?

pat cripps

yes it is, do you prefer marshall over c daniel ?

Russty_

I agree with James Pat, Clarke, Andrews and Marshall…stylin! Andrews is a gun and has a high ceiling, not sure if Rampe can maintain his current numbers and is a bit of a crazy cat.

Steve

Struggling to decide between Stewart and Ryan as an upgrade option in defence? Ryan seems to have a higher ceiling but Stewart much more consistent, only one score below 88

BomberKnighta

Same but i have Sicily in the frame too? Any ideas community? Also Stewart saves coin.

James

trade put larkey or setterfield?:

Joe

Am I chasing points getting in Walters as my last fwd?

Fwd line is currently: Dunkley, Kelly, Danger, Boak, Heeney, setterfield (young, Moore (hawks)).

Or is C.Daniel, Marshall or another a better pick?

Joe

Also, would it be better to upgrade young or setterfield? Young to Walters only leaves me with $5k. And will need some $$ to get Hurn in 2 weeks hopefully

Mick

Personally Daniel or Marshall if I were in your shoes. I’ve ridden the Walters rollercoaster before. Surely teams will start putting some work into him after the month he’s had.

Matthew

Logue worth his inflated price?

Russty_

You could afford to have another week's look at him maybe…if he backs up with a good score this week, he'll be the most traded in again next week.

Brn

Waiting a week is best

redherringfc

Hopefully, too late to reverse trades for me.

John

Trade Schultz to Logue via Gardner and trade Tom Sparrow to Clarke, which leaves me with 14 trades and roughly $50k. And next week downgrade Wilkie to Naish if selected and upgrade Duursma to any premo midfielder

OR

Trade Wilkie to Logue, upgrade Setterfield to Caleb Daniel and complete my fwd line and Sparrow to Clarke. Leaves me with 13 trades and only $1.5k

hedski

In no surprise to anyone Gardener has been dropped.

Russty_

I thought he might've been the next Balta, score cruddy scores and still get a game and turn it around, guess Bevo isn't as patient as Hardwick.

Russty_

It's a shame…how do you play a whole game and only get 3 possessions?…I was a fairly shit player as a young bloke and still got 10 or 15 even when on the bench for half the game.

Brn

Way too overhyped, mostly due to his price. Shame

The Ranger

Nice D8

Russty_

Hanners in for the Saints woohoo…how the hell does Parker keep getting a game? lol, not complaining though.
Hope Hanners gets through the game ok. Good to see big Jake Carlisle back too, it's been awhile.

Brn

Here comes the late bolter that is hanners. If he kills it things will get interesting

Russty_

Yeah mate…could be an easy upgrade if he delivers the next 2 weeks, from a spuddy or injured rookie.

Sam_01

How long is the Sav out for down at the cattery? Just think Grundy could be a late out

Sam_01

Yeah I’m not super concerned I was more just wondering if fort will get a couple of games as I’d be DDP trading to him anyway to make cash

Saritz

Grundy will play

Mac

Tried Walsh, Libba n Mundy to Fyfe, Clarke n Dubkley but am $100 short, Grrrr

Fyfe, Clarke + (Boak, Walters, Daniel or Marshall???)
0r
Dunkley, Clarke + (Boak, Walters, Daniel or Marshall???)

Appreciate some clarity

Sam_01

Tough call mate very tough
Unfortunately you need them both haha I’d probably lean to Fyfe and Boak you know what you are getting, boaks at a good price

Mac

cheers buddy. That's where I'm starting to lean too. Couldn't believe I missed out on the big 2 by $100. $100 geez. That's probably 1 kick. Spewing I didn't pull the Mundy Dunkley trade last week. Gave him one more n clearly his lunch getting cut by Blakley, Walters n Brewley.

Mac

another consideration is Dunkley (BE63, +$60k) will potentialy increase by more than Fyfe (BE97,124 n +$13) over next 2 weeks……

Bubz

Hey all, really struggling to find what to do with my team. I have 9 trades and 50k, currently think Stack and Setterfield to Bont (?) and Garner via Gardner, however this means I will likely miss on Dunkley unless I sideways trade someone. What should I be doing?

DEF: Lloyd Ryan Sicily Williams Milera Duursma (Gardner Answerth)
MID: Neale Cripps Fyfe Macrae Cogs Sloane M.Crouch Stack (Baker Hately Scott)
FWD: Telly Danger Boak Cameron Heeney Gray (Setterfield Young)

Brn

Stack is due for trading, would continue to hold the sliw burn of the year that is setters (if trades are low he can still make $. Duursma could be worth a trade in

JohnDJ59

I'd be trading out Scott for Clarke to start with.

The Mighty Wokkas

With one spot remaining in fwd line, do I double downgrade and then upgrade to tkelly or do just one downgrade and bring in Walters, Marshall or Daniel. Keep in mind that my downgrades will be Duursma and stocker, and I already have D Clarke in mid. What do I do? Cheers

Russty_

I'd do what you have to do to get Tim Kelly.

Brn

Its a punt mate but all of walters marshell and daniel could score similarly within context. Dont break the bank for kelly if you are up for a pod

redherringfc

Westhoff was meant to cut loose with Dixon back in the team.

HE WASN’T MEANT TO MAKE WAY FOR HIM.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Russty_

Just get Lycett in mate, he has had 3 good weeks out of the last 4, and now he's the main ruck.
I had FK-Hoff in there too, hoping he could improve, and he did last week, and got dropped…freakin great!
Another example of a forced trade.

redherringfc

I got the Hoff last week. 🤪

TheLostBoys

With Darcy Fort being named, is it now worth trading Reilly Obrien to Fort? Was planning on holding Obrien for the extra cash he will generate, but if Fort plays for multiple weeks he may generate more. Concerned that Fort may be back out again next week.

Brn

Rob to fort is the most practical trade if you have him

Tommy

Fort only playing because rat is injured. Will be dropped next week

Lekdog

We are live and covering the final bye round plus all of your questions now!

Head here to watch: https://www.twitch.tv/lekdoggames

Holty01

Hmm after thinking long and hard, I’ve decided to hold off on Merrett and Hurn this week. So I’m going to be selfish and hope Merrett gets the Hutchings tag and Hurn takes it easy after coming back after his hammy. Now I’ve said this, watch them both pump out 150s 🤔

Sam_01

Haha I hope hurny takes it easy
He is my last onfield spot to fill gonna have to wait 2 weeks to find the cash though 🙁

Holty01

still a great effort only needing 1 more upgrade.

KSinny

Thoughts on going Gibbons to Clarke, Balta to Fort and Walsh to Neale? Leaves me with $229k and 9 trades.

Brn

Will fort be of use to you? If yes get him. Clarke is priority

Brn

All trades are great if you can properly utilise fort

KSinny

Probably not as a scoring on field player but Definatly to make money

Stupid Coach

Awesome job Kev. I'm panicking at the moment. Who is more important to bring in out of D Clarke or Fort. I could bring them both in but that means I would have to make three trades ( I want to also bring Lloyd in for Duursma or Willie). Leave me with 11 trades which I think is too low at this stage of the season. Help!!!

Stupid Coach

Wilkie*

Brn

Mate who are you bringing fort in for?
He is a ruck only.
Clarke looks the goods mate

Stupid Coach

Bringing him in for Sweet. Will give me a second ruck with Goldy having the bye this round.

Russty_

Wouldn't bring Fort in, dodgy js at best…probably not worth doing really.

Blue

Job security of Joel Garner

TommyC99

Got dropped after 1 week and i thought he played alright that game too so not sure its great. Port also dropped a few guns so wouldnt be surprised if they came straight back in

silversovereign

Probably the first to go when rocky comes back

Tommy

Would need to be one of ports best to hold his spot

Browny

Neale Or Lloyd the best option??
may be one or the other not sure i will afford both at any point!

Maverick_

Lloyd is the must a stand out in DEF a cut above the rest imo, hurn second.
If you miss Neale still some great options around. Gaff Duncan Merrett Bont macrae

JohnDJ59

Agree with Maverick, Lloyd is a must in your back line.

Brn

Hard to go past lloyd. Lots of mids to choose from and neale – as good as he is – is fading a bit. Other mid prems

TommyC99

Treloar and Kelly

or

Neale and Marshall/Hawkins

Brn

Treloar and kelly because of kelly's ceiling and treloar's ability to go 110+ easily 🙂

TommyC99

Treloar has an easy next 2 weeks so hoping could gain some rank there. If I go Marshall i miss out on Kelly for the season unless i get an injury and im not sure i can afford to do that. Thinking If Marshall has a stinker against Goldy or Gawn in the next month i could bring him in as an F7 to loop with Jez Cameron towards the end of the season

KSinny

Is it worth getting Oliver over Neale to be able to get rid of Brodie smith for Stewart (or a defender $501k or less)?

JohnDJ59

Yes

Dash

Steward or Lloyd this week. Have been waiting for Lloyd for so long now – 100k difference.

Dash

Stewart that should read.

JohnDJ59

Lloyd.

Russty_

Can't go wrong with Lloyd Dash.
Stewart has reached premo this year but not uber premo, lifted his average 16 points per week but Lloyd still has the tendency to go large every week if the circumstances are right.

Dash

Another one. Looking at Oliver versus Bont for a mid spot this week too. Thoughts?

JohnDJ59

Oliver.

Russty_

I have both but I'd go Oliver over Bont..just.

KSinny

QUICK, which defender for 501k or less???

TommyC99

Stewart
Ryan
Sicily

in that order

KSinny

Already got Ryan and sic, Stewart over JJ?

No idea

yeah I reckon, for consistency

The Ranger

Stewart for mine

TommyC99

For sure

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Rampe pod it up

Jace

I'm trading smith to jj as a pod

The Ranger

I just jumped onboard the Billings train.
Never been on it before.

Wish me luck.

JugHead

Good luck. It's like the train ride at the amusement park. A lot of fun but you need a strong stomach.

Russty_

Agree Jughead, he'll either want to laugh uncontrollably or puke after the week's effort lol

Rick Grimes

Never eat before the Billings ride. Good chance you'll blow chunks. That's when it's not closed for maintenance.

Swans2012

Welcome aboard ranger, it’s been a somewhat satisfying journey so far this season

The Ranger

It's a bit of a "going down swinging" sort of move.
Might not be great in the long run but it could be great every now and then.

Derek

Well that stuffed my week up. I have Hurn in my bench

Derek

Without an E

JohnDJ59

Did the Thursday night game put you out Derek ? that happened to me once, but I usually have most of the players playing already on the field.

Derek

I reversed my trades just before the game started. It put Hurn back on bench because he didn’t play last week.

I realised 1 min after start

Maybe Hurn will be quiet tonight

JohnDJ59

Looking at 90-100 at half time. That's a lot of points to miss out on Derek, did you have more than 18 playing at least.

Derek

no. Will only have 17 now.

Had Rocky, Libba and Hoff all not playing

JohnDJ59

Ouch, I thought you would have traded Libba out by now Derek.

Derek

Libba was my M9, Had Rocky at M8 and I thought the draw looked good to swing the two during the byes and the second half. he was going to get me through round 13 and 14. Gave me a 30 and a see ya later.

Anyway, Libba and Rocky both out this week for Lloyd and Neale

JohnDJ59

I like those trades a lot Derek.

Russty_

What happened this week Derek?…you have a bunch of playing players on the bench not scoring.
Looks like it's gonna be a disaster score.

Russty_

Hope all's well mate, and it wasn't some kind of family emergency.

Derek

I’m pretty much assured to lose all my matches by less than 91 this week

Holty01

Damn mate, that sux. Hope you recover

Callum

Hind or logue worth going on early?
I never go early but i seriously need money ASAP.
naish isn't playing but am open to trading him in as Its setters making way so he isn't playing anyway.

Yeah I think it is Callum if you need cash, I was skint this week and wasn't going to trade but ended up trading, now I have 400k in the bank.

Callum

Would you go hind or naish? what’s Hinds JS like good to see he held his spot with Hannebery back.. short maybe back next week going to affect naish?

Callum

It would have to be will setterfield or bailey Scott. 80k more from setterfield but lose a DPP and warm body on the bench

The Ranger

I'm banking on Logue taking the place of Pearce so he should have pretty good JS

JugHead

He has a bye this week…..but that aside….. any love for Lachie Weller as a value pick def?
473k, DPP, 3 game average 99, 5 game average 95.

I like him mate, might be an option for next year I think

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Picked him up in draft

Been good dpp a nice little bonus..

The Ranger

Had him in mind for a D7/M9 spot but the way my cash generation is going he'll be too expensive.
