SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 15

Published by Kev on

You guys, it’s over!! No more byes. No more relying on crappy rookies (and James Sicily) to scrape together 18 players this week. This calls for a celebration.

Sub all your guns back on field and if you’ve done this trading thing correctly, you should be looking at a team of 19-22 premiums this week. Cash gen becomes an issue at this point of the year. There’s been a few exceptions, but squeezing out 150k from rookies has been a slow burn this year. This week is the perfect opportunity to do a double downgrade as we’ll have 3-4 rookies on the bubble. Griffin Logue is a must have this week, he may be 40k more than your entry level rook but with rock solid job security and a SuperCoach friendly intercept role, stick him at D6 with confidence. 

Patch traded in Buddy last week and as result has jumped on a plane and left the Jock Reynolds Crew this week. Fozdaddy stepped up to the podcast plate in his absence and carved out a magnificent debut, which will make for some awkward selection issues when Patch finally makes his return (or has maxed out Lek’s credit card). Some of the mid-season draftees are impressing at lower level, get the lowdown with Barron in Around the Grounds. Damo sinks his teeth into 9 games worth of VC/C options, and your boi StattyMatty’s always brilliant cheat sheet is another must read. 

The News

Jackson Hately is in, community! 

But do we trade for him or not? By now Leon is not to be trusted, despite returns of 22 and 21 possessions in Hately’s two AFL games and carving it up at NEAFL level, Hately hasn’t got much of a look in. He could be the one to go when Whitfield returns in a few weeks. I wouldn’t trade a playing rook for him, even if they are maxed out cash wise. If you’re still holding onto dead wood like Bailey Scott (who is done for the year) or Will Hayes (out of favour) there’s no risk to the trade if he gets dropped again. It also depends on trades, if you’re running low hang onto them as they’ll be like gold when the season starts to draw to a close.

Sound the klaxons. Patrick Cripps is OUT. Reports are it’s a 1-2 week injury. Hold him for now but when you hear the ‘experts’ say you need trades for the end of the year, this is why. There’s three confirmed debuts over Friday and Saturday and four more on the maybe pile for Sunday. Nic Nat is BACK. Buddy is injured. and Richmond welcome back about a third of their best 22. 

As expected, no Esava at the Cats, but Darcy Fort surprisingly lost his spot. Adelaide have made three forced changes. Bryce Gibbs is back in the good books and there’s a debut for forward rookie Ben Davis (FWD – 123.9k). Wayne Milera is among the outs along with Josh Jenkins and Cam Ellis-Yolmen.

Willie Rioli returns after suspensions alongside Nic Nat. Jarrod Cameron has kept his spot which is encouraging for his job security. Jack Petruccelle is injured and can be traded for anyone still holding on. The Hawks are debuting Oliver Hanrahan (FWD – 123.9k) in one of three changes, Jarryd Roughead will miss with injury. James Rowbottom is back again for the Swans for their match against the Suns. Tagger Ryan Clarke has lost his spot. The Suns get some experience back in the form of Pearce Hanley and Touk Miller. Port are finally dusting Willem Drew off the shelf but there’s still no Tom Rocklliff. Ruck Peter Ladhams will play his second game. Joel Garner has survived and is on the bubble this week. The Dogs are going in unchanged. Kyron Hayden (FWD/MID – 102.4k) will make his debut at North. This kid tackles A LOT, keep an eye on him. A rock bottom priced DPP swing is golden at this stage of the year. Collingwood have replaced the injured Jeremy Howe with Josh Daicos.

There’s a lot to unpack in the St Kilda v Richmond match on Sunday. Jono Marsh has been dropped for the Saints as has Noah Balta for the Tigers. Jack Higgins has also been sent back to the twos to find some touch. Jack Steele has been named and there’s a possible debut for Doulton Langlands (MID/FWD – 123.9k). Ex-blue Sam Rowe is also in line to make his club debut. Experience galore returns at the Tigers; Trent Cotchin, Shane Edwards, Ivan Soldo, Kane Lambert, Jayden Short, and David Astbury are back after various injuries and ailments. Shai Bolton gets another crack and cementing a small forward spot. Zac Bailey and Jarrod Berry are back for the Lions as they host the Dees at the Gabba, there’s also a possible debut for Corey Lyons (MID – 123.9k). The Dees have added Jordan Lewis, Michael Hibberd, and Brayden Preuss to their squad, Josh Wagner is their only confirmed out. In the final game of the week, I’ll say it again – Patrick Cripps is OUT. Liam Jones returns though and former Saint Hugh Goddard (DEF – 159.6k) may debut. Freo have recalled Cam McCarthy for the injured Jesse Hogan. Adam Cerra and Lachie Schultz are among the six new additions.  

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 I said in the intro, cash gen = bad. While there’s temptation to settle for a “good” rook like Duursma or Walsh at M8 to finish, having a reliable, and more importantly, cheap proven premium at this point in the season is gold. Look no further than Rory Sloane this week. He worked his way onto many never again lists last year, but it’s time to let go of that grudge. Averaging 108.6 from 13 games this year, he has 10 scores over 100, 5 of which have been over 120. His season low of 35 came from just 25% TOG as his night ended early courtesy of a hamstring injury. The best part is his price, at just 511k he is the second cheapest top 20 mid on average. Taking out that injury affected score, his average balloons to 114.8, making him the 7th top mid on average and 120k cheaper than the similarly averaged Luke Parker. 

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

RUC

From a Draftstars perspective, we’ve got two of the worst fantasy ruckman going head-to-head tonight. I joked with Damo to just put a non playing 5k ruck here and load up elsewhere but I’ll try to unravel this. Tom Bellchambers (10.5k), somewhat counter intuitively, averages 83.5DS in losses this year, compared to 56DS in wins. If you think the Giants will smash the Bombers as I do, Belly is your man. If you’re not the superstitious type, they are only $500 apart, so you could just build the rest of your lineup and take whoever fits.

Please don’t put Shaun McKernon (8.9k) in your team.

DEF

Essendon have pulled Marty Gleeson ($6.2k) from nowhere to play his first game since 2017. He laid a few eggs that year but has a ceiling of 80-90 if he can get around 18-20 touches. Averaging 17 touches (12 kicks) and 6 marks in the VFL, he should be chalky value tonight. Dylan Clarke (MID – 9.9k) hasn’t hit the heights of his 109DS against Carlton, but is cheap enough to be in play considering his role. Zac Williams (11.8k) has a massive ceiling when he gets going, Heath Shaw (12.4k) is an interesting pivot off Williams and may go overlooked. Nick Haynes (11k) is the slightly cheaper alternative, if he’s allowed to be the +1 taking easy marks he’ll hit value easily.

MID

Dylan Clarke has kept his direct opponent to 76DS in his 3 games, but since the bye Essendon are conceding a massive 119.3 top the top 3 opposition mids, giving up huge games to Elliot Yeo (132DS) and Ricky Henderson (140DS). If you can avoid whoever Clarke tags there could be some massive scores on offer. A quick poll around the JR office wasn’t at all helpful, with Josh Kelly (17.1k), Tim Taranto (16.8k), and Stephen Coniglio (15.3k) all getting mentions. Although I suspect they were just trolling me because they are all awful people. I think he’ll go onto a wing and take either Kelly or Cogs, making Taranto and Jacob Hopper (13.4k) locks. It’s unlikely he’ll draw any attention and has shown he can hit 120DS.   

FWD

If not for some wayward kicking JJK could have gone absolutely bananas last week. He kicked 3.5 from 8 marks and embarrassed Hurley at times. A bit of recency bias may put a few off Jeremy Cameron (12.8k) onto Darcy Parish but I really like him here to bounce back against the Dons. It means sacrificing a GWS midfield premium for him though, so if you’d rather be safe you’ll need value. Jeremy Finlayson (10.8k) and Harry Himmelberg (8.8k) carry a lower ceiling than Cameron but could stretch Essendon’s defence. Jayden Laverde (8.9k) has put together a solid month of footy. Josh Begley (7.2k) has been serviceable if you need a further salary saver.

So it’s Hind over Hayley then? Either option helps me get to Sloane this week.

Rivo

*Hatley

SC_Kev7

Wouldn't expect Hind to nail 3 goals every week but he's the safer option. Steele 1-2 weeks away is probably the only threat to his JS. If you've already got a playing M9 and M10 then having Hately at M11 isn't the worst idea.

Leon

Taking hind over Hately. Lower price and Cameron can’t be trusted

KSinny

Hey community would really appreciate some advice on my team. I've got 9 trades and $4k in the bank.

DEF: Sicily, Houli, Ryan, Stewart, Duursma, Hore (Naish, Answerth)

MID: Macrae, Cripps, Gaff, Sloane, M. Crouch, Fyfe, Jelly, Oliver
(Bewly, Scott, Clarke)

RUC: Gawn, Grundy (Bines)

FWD: Danger, Heeney, Kelly, Boak, Marshell, Gardner (Balta, Young)

SC_Kev7

Looking good, KSinny. F6 might be a problem this week so Duursma or Hore to Logue then Balta to Daniel / Walters / Dunkley

Peedgd

Yeah I was thinking the same. Hope you ran with a downgrade of bore and upgrade in the forward line

Richie Porte

Hey guys, bringing in logue and Slone, trading out Dursma and either Answorth or Moore, which one? Or is a double downgrade the way to go. Will have 10 trades left after this week

SC_Kev7

Answerth

Pieman

Answerth to logue and scott/Clarke to hately/hind
Will free you up some cash to upgrade balta to Daniels and possibly duursma next week

Maverick_

What do we think community.. 11 trades 88k

DEF: hurn sicily Ryan Williams Smith duursma (answerth naish)

MID: Cripps Fyfe Macrae Neale Treloar Oliver MCrouch Walsh ( clarke bewley setterfield)

RUCK: Gawn ROB (bines)

FWD: TKelly danger Dunkley Cameron heeney Marshall (gardener Burgess )

my last defender will be Whitfield I hope and last midfielder Sloane ROB to grundy when the times right still a very low BE so not rushing it.

Regarding this week I think logue is a must and hately im 50/50 on.. Before Hatelys selection I was walsh -> Sloane duursma/answerth -> logue

but the double down is tempting duursma -> logue and setters —> hately build the bank.. obviously the issue is Hatelys JS
All other suggestions are welcome of course.

Sam_01

I’d be planning out your upgrade targets and cash needed
Cash is very tight even the 30k difference of hind vs hately will come into play id bring in Sloane and logue this week
Flick Walsh and Answerth probably

Maverick_

Answerth -> hately

Duursma -> logue

Leaning toward the above but will just have to miss Sloane this week and reassess next round but still hopefully go walsh -> Sloane then

390k bank and 9 trades remaining

redherringfc

Looking at your team, I think you can skip one of the rookies this week. You can probably take a risk that who you currently have will provide enough cash for upgrades. I think you should go for Logue and Sloane.

I don’t see a need for you, with that team, to run the risk of trading in a player who you might never be put on field, who gets dropped and who you don’t end up cashing in.

Having said that, I’m going Hind and Hately this week, because I have 2 spuds in Scott and Hayes on my bench (and I got Logue last week)

Maverick_

thanks redherring they’re very good points. I think it’ll be a last second decision I’ll make at 7:19. Like you said I may not be able too cash in on hately anyway

Rick Grimes

Is it just me or has the site had a snazzy facelift?

Libba

Yeh it's looking good

Rick Grimes

Ok, that's good. Thought I'd had a bad crop of mushrooms.

Maverick_

Yeah I’m loving it. Looks the goods 🙂

Russty_

Really not a fan of a black background…feels like a Cave, black writing on a white background is the only way to go in any Forum I reckon.

James

backline right now is Lloyd, Williams, Laird, Sicily, Hore, Logue (Answerth, Gardner), 13 trades and $1.5k in the bank , which trades to do out of these two:

Duursma to Hind, Schultz to Naish via Gardner. Leaves me with $288k and 11 trades. Next week I can go Hore to Hurn and Stack to someone like Sloane or Duncan

OR

Duursma to Naish via Answerth, Hore to Luke Ryan. Leaves me with 11 trades and $171k

SC_Kev7

Liking option 1

Mahr

Cool restyle btw <img src=&quotcomment image" width="1"/>

Razza

Totally lost on whether to go Sloane or Macrae. Have the money for either, but I guess the extra cash would be nice if i went Sloane. Thoughts?

redherringfc

Macrae is probably going to outscore Sloane, so I’d say Macrae.

Pick the best players in each position if possible and Macrae is near the top of the pile.

Maverick_

Depends on how the rest of ya team looks razza. Sloane is great value and if that 80k saving allows you to get Say a Lloyd instead of a houli next week then that’s when you take Sloane but If this is ya last premo spot In ya 22 and cash saved meant nothing macrae for H2H pts between the two but not a lot in it probably.

Jaxon

Do i drop B Smith or M Hore this week??

Rick Grimes

Hore looked bad last week. Think May is squeezing his points. I'll probably give one more week.

AuroraBorealis?!

Hore to Logue for me, May is effecting his scoring and will lose value from this point

Dash

10 Trade – 125K. May need to keep Duursma so I don't cop an Answerth type score.
Would love your trade advice this week. I was thinking Answerth to Logue and maybe a loophole downgrade in the midfield.
Just struggling to think what trades this week.
Lloyd, Houli. Laird, Sicily, Duursma, Answerth (Burgess, Marsh)
Fyfe, Macrae, Dunkley, Neale, Cripps, Oliver, D Clarke, Bewley (Hately, O Baker, Setterfield)
Gawn, Grundy (Bines)
Danger, T Kelly, Heeney, Boak, R Gray, J Cameron (Gardner, M Parker)

SC_Kev7

Tick for the Answerth to Logue trade. No one in your mids looks ready to go. Parker to Naish via Burgess gets you some more cash

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Think that one is going to be popular.

Also guilty 😜

Dash

Do you think Duursma should go this week. I didn't really want to play both Clarke and Hately tonight but may have to as they are midfielders in the true sense. No loophole there. I'll have to wait until the teams are named.

Matt

Hey guys, absolutely lost as to what my next move should be.

Team is currently. 12 trades left $115,500 in bank.

Lloyd, whitfield, sicily, ryan, hore, logue( young mckay )

Kelly, fyfe, cripps, cogs, macrae, neale, oliver, hately ( answerth, stocker o baker)

Gawn grundy

Danger, dunkley, cameron, kelly, boak, setterfield ( young gardner )

I know i have whitfield there but nows it feels to late now to.do anyhing with him, my bench is very light all over …

Was thinking just downgrading def young to naish for cash amd cover and maybe hind for answerth for cash… but hore BE big …

Only.going for head to head wins if that makes any diff

Any suggestions out there would be sweet

FearTheBeard

😐 Rocky you ….

So do I put him on the bench and play Clarke for a week? Sell him for M Crouch?

Jace

Why do you still have Rocky?

Holty01

You could always put the e on Clarke. If he has a bad game then bring in Crouch.

Fearthebeard

Brilliant holty! Thanks mate

BradleyTC99

Hey guys, posted this on the podcast thread and Russty gave me a good option, but would love to get another opinion or 2!

9 trades left, 4.8k in the bank
Def: Hurn, Ryan, laird, Williams, Crisp, Hore (naish, Gardner)
Mid: Fyfe, Macrae, Cripps, Oliver, bont, Sloane, Crouch, Clarke (Answerth, Baker, Bewley)
Ruc: Gawn, Grundy (ROB)
Fwd: Dunkley, Danger, Boak, Tkelly, J Cameron, Heeney (Young, Bines)

Thinking definitely downgrade at least once this week. Also need to grab Lloyd ASAP abut would only work if I traded ROB.

Any suggestions would be great thanks guys!

Aaron

Can anyone tell me Oscar Bakers BE?
Also bringing either Williams or Ryan for Hore, which one do you think? Leaning towards Ryan for consistency

Steeeve

It's 28 I reckon. I wanna go him to Hateley this week because I plan to use two trades per week for the next few (if I don't get some cash now, even if it's only 70k, it will stuff me up later).
Wondering if I should get Hind instead and make more money just in case I need extra money later, or even if I go Hire to a forward rookie via dpp… would have to go early on the forward rookie though…

SC_Donkey

7 trades left for the next couple of weeks with 284k in the bank.
Can't decide of who to bring in at M8 out of
JKelly, Merrett, Parker or Duncan
Waiting on TKelly to drop in price or Marshall, Gray for the last spot at Fwd
I think Mid will be my last upgrade for the season as i cant decide who to bring in. Plus my trades are really low, need to make that last two upgrade worth it. Need durability, consistency from those players specially in the Mid.

Lloyd, Hurn, Stewart
Houli, Rich, Sicily
Rotham, Logue

Fyfe, Macrea, Cunners, Cripps
Oliver, Cogs, The Bont, Clarke
Bewley, Hind, Scott

Gawn, Grundy, Bines

Dunkley, Danger, Walters
Boak, Heeny, Setterfield
Young, Garner

TommyC99

Hey guys, which option works best to set me up for the rest of the season? Got 1 upgrade in defense and midfield and hoping to get an F7 in there too! 9 trades but only 4.5k in the bank

1. Hore and Answerth – Logue and Hind (leaves 384k)
2. Hore and ROB – Lloyd and Logue (leaves 111k)

So obviously option 2 nets me the most points this week. But i'm also looking towards the next couple of weeks where im eyeing off Robbie young – Tom Hawkins as F6 so i can push Cameron to F7. Thoughts guys?

Cliffy

Looking to paint the fence this week, need help guys in choosing one of these options:

Option A (expensive mid option)

Duursma – Logue (plays at D6 for the next few weeks)
Walsh – JKelly

Option B (less expensive mid option)

Duursma – Logue
Walsh – Sloane/Merrett/Duncan

I'll be left with one Mid and one Def spot left to upgrade with either of these options I go with, what do we think all?
Still got to wait on other teams to come out later too, hopefully, they don't affect my decision too much.

redherringfc

If you’re upgrading your other mid next week, go for option 2 and then get Kelly next week. He has a BE of 151, projected at 128 with a 10k loss. The risk is is if he gets 175 he’ll go up 10k.

Steeeve

How much does Hore drop if he scores another 50?

TOPHAWK1

He will drop around $23K back to $400K.

Beezneex

I'm punting him to be about $413k next week.

Defying_Madness

Hey community would really appreciate some advice on my team. Have 13 trades and 177k in the bank.

DEF: Lloyd, Sicily, Williams, Smith, Logue, Hore (Duursma, Buurgess)

MID: Fyfe, Neale, M Crouch, Bont, Macrae, Cogs, Cripps, Clarke (Bewley, Baker, Scott)

RCK: Gawn, Grundy (Sweet)

FWD: Danger, Kelly, Gray, Heeney, Marshall, Daniel (Young, Gardner)

Aiming on getting Sloane and Hurn over the next couple weeks and then waiting a bit for cash to get my D6. Logue should be decent in the meantime. Not sure about the best way to get it done or if these are even my best moves.

redherringfc

You could get Hurn in immediately, but his break even is 161.

Who are you looking at for the other defender? I’d be tempted to get Laird at just over 500k this week, probably for Duursma.

I’d also jump on either Hind or Hately for Scott.

Last point, it might cost an extra trade, but J Kelly instead of Sloane.

Defying_Madness

Thanks for the response. Was considering something like Baker to Sloane and Duursma/Hore to Naish. Was thinking at waiting a week on Hurn since he has a high BE and trade out whichever one of Hore/Duursma survives this week. For the other defender I was tempted to wait until Whitfield comes back as Logue should hold the fort at D6 for a while and I am low on available cash. Other options I was looking at are Houli who should drop in price by the time I have enough to afford him. Ryan, Laird and Stewart are other ones I would consider but it would mainly depend on form, my bank and current prices. Hately and Hind are tempting as well as they should appreciate nicely to help speed up my money problem. I would like Kelly in my team but I don't know if I have enough cash left to get 2 defenders and Kelly.

Beezneez

SC projection is 2500 this week. The only line sub premo is my def. 10 trades and only $14k.
Def is Lloyd, Laird, Williams, B Smith, Hore and Duursma (Naish, Gardner/Burgess).
Would appreciate som advice on the best option.
1. Burgess to Logue and any of
Baker to Hind – allows only Hore to Hurn next week.
Lockhart to Hately or Hind – allows any of B Smith, Hore or Duursma to Hurn next week.
2. Duursma to Logue and Hore to Hurn this week – only uses 2 trades but lose some flexibility.

The mighty wokkas

Is it worth trading a rookie with a lot of cash left to make to bring in Sloane? I’m thinking trading bewley so I can be 1 player off full premo

Holty01

Personally no but who is to say what’s right or wrong in this situation. 🤔

redherringfc

At some point in the season it makes sense. It depends on where your team is at. It sounds like it wouldn’t be too bad for you to pull the trigger early on Bewley.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

You rang?

Holty01

Everybody panic. 😱

hedski

Trying not to until teams drop Holty, then it's mass panic 😥

TOPHAWK1

I am nervous Holty, but not panicking yet. That might happen at 4.30 pm (Perth time) when teams drop. I have Answerth, Gibbons, and Balta, and have spuds like Garner and Burgess as well. Cant afford for the axe to fall on my rooks, then its full blown panic mode.

Bobby

Im hearing Cripps is out with a toe injury

Holty01

Oh 💩

Lloyd, whitfield, sicily, ryan, hore, logue( young mckay )

Lekdog

I’M PANICKING

Saritz

only because McKay and Cripps are out for your beloved Blues

iLoveNMFC

Which two to loophole for Cripps out of Clarke, Hind and Bewley?

Rick Grimes

Clarke and Bewley. That's what I'm doing.

KSinny

Who to get between Parish, Gray, Billings and Hawkins?

Russty_

I like Gray out of those 4 Sinny, nice 3 round av.

Kazz

Hey guys can I do a trade during the round? Say on Friday night after the Essendon GWS game?

James Sykes

yes as long as those players arent from the thursday game. also once a trade is done after the start of the round you cannot reverse it.

Dash

Loophole Clarke or Hately tonight?

Maverick_

Hately

Dash

So Keep Clarke on field you reckon for tonight?

Brn

Im confused. Play hately before d clarke

Russty_

Clarke on the bench in case he scores bugger all.

Holty01

That’s what I did

TelescopicCox

Go for Sloane this week or grab Hately on a double down? Leaning to Sloane as and worrying about cash gen next week

Maverick_

I am in the EXACT same boat TC!!
i think i am taking sloane with crippa out and going to let hately sail.
But do not feel good about it at all

TelescopicCox

Went Hately. Could be a bargain M8 while I improve my weak backline.

Sam_01

If you have trades to make use out of hately and possibly field him or loop him then take him
I’m down to 6 trades and it’s just not worth me getting him sadly was thinking of getting him for some solid cover but I just won’t make enough coin to make it worthwhile

TommyC99

Hately or Hind?

BradleyTC99

Is it worth trading ROB – Lloyd this week or going the double down and doing answerth – Hind/hately. Only 7 trades left after 2 this week

s c tragic

Just when you thought it was safe to exhale , cripps drops a bombshell, rethinking trades and moves and nOW I 'M PANICING !!!!!!!!

Peedgd

Gold

hedski

Hope not have the vc on him

Brn

Can see a lot of people getting hately due to crippsnout but im backing in d clarke into o baker to cover for cripps.

Maverick_

I still dont know know if to get sloane logue or logue hately!!
his poor JS and whitfield back in a week or two scares me…

Defying_Madness

I am taking a pass on Hately and getting in Sloane this week I think. Already have Logue but need to bring in a defender and mid so Sloane and Naish it is I think.

Maverick_

I went hately!!

TommyC99

Such a tough one. I’m panicking big time!!! At this stage I’m going hind

Defying_Madness

Who goes first, Hore or Duursma?

SamuraiPizzaCat

Hore

Defying_Madness

I am thinking I might trade Hore first, this is a very hard decision

JEL

Where is that PANIC button…… what/where/when did Cripps get injured?

Russty_

CARLTON superstar Patrick Cripps will miss his first match since 2017 on Sunday, with a sprained foot preventing him from facing Fremantle.

Cripps sustained the injury in the three-point loss to the Western Bulldogs before the bye and failed to recover sufficiently despite the week off.
He is one of the leading fancies for this year's Brownlow Medal despite the Blues' struggles and could miss multiple games, so this setback could have wider ramifications.

Well this is some bad bloody news!

JEL

Seriously!!
Wonder why it wasn't reported on the Official AFL Injury list, especially if it's been 2 weeks?

Russty_

Probably cause he's the glue that holds that fragile Team together, and maybe normally he toughs it out through niggles, because he's superhuman. Must be pretty sore now though.

JEL

So true

Big G

Talk he may miss 2

Maverick_

I think i did a bad bad thing bringing it Hately
I panicked my finger slipped on the trade button and he accidentally landed in my team..

Russty_

25 points with 16 mins to go in the 2nd quarter with 7 disposals is pretty good for a rook Mav, he'll be right.
The issue with him is, will he continue to play, not his scoring ability.

Maverick_

I went duursma -> logue and answerth -> hately John.
I hope hately gets one more week to prove himself before whitfield is back.
He is far too good to be wasting away in the NEAFL getting his 35+ touches each week

Holty01

Best thing I did this year was start Williams
Worst thing was trading him out.

Russty_

I feel that pain sharply The Holt…I traded him out after his 60 odd for Stewart, and then Whitfield went out and Williams proceeded to go nuts…and has gone ever since Whitfield has been out…and Stewart has been ok but not scoring like Williams.
Williams is smashing it without Whit in the side.

hedski

Same, to Whitfield the week he got injured….

Beezneez

I traded him for Lloyd when he got injured thinking it would be longer than a week. I then traded him back in when Whitfield went down. Not too much damage done (1 trade).

Holty01

Hately only 62% tog and still on 40. 🤔

Derek

Next week could be 0% TOG

Lazza

Yep, his wasn’t the best game … and a couple of mistakes in the last qtr cost them… back to the NEAFL for a few weeks, or maybe the rest of the year I think Derek..

Rick Grimes

So, Cripps looking at multiple weeks out. Hold or fold?

Russty_

Gotta hold I think Rick…how would you get him back in?
Many weeks to go…and miles to go before we sleep.

Tony

Some Carlton supporter on fanfooty said he’s out for the season… I hope he was joking!

Ned_Starkers

Hold for at least this round until the information is more clear. Personally I’ll give him at least two weeks before I even consider what trade options might be available.

redherringfc

I’m having a serious think about it. It’s the only way to avoid a donut in my forwards, using dpp of Answerth and Gardner. I’ll bring in Boak. I’ve got a day and bit to mull it over.

Tony

I didn’t take hately, watch him stay in the side for 6 weeks

SamuraiPizzaCat

I traded Hately in Round 8, missed adjusting trades when he didn't get named. Finally get to put him to some use!

Scarpi

Hey Community I have 9 Trades Left and 207k In the bank any Advice Will help.

My team Is:

D: Lloyd, Laird, Ryan, Sicily, Houli, Burgess (Rotham, Naish)
M: Fyfe, Macrae, Cripps, Neale, Gaff, Taranto, Kelly, B.Crouch (Bewerly, Answerth, Scott)
R: Gawn, Grundy (O'Brien)
F: Dunkley, Boak, Henney, Dangerfield, Parker, Petruccelle (Bines, Young)

Peedgd

Petrucelle swing to burgess and downgrade to griffen.
Parker up to c. Daniel

AuroraBorealis?!

Can't believe i held Rockliff all through the byes only to be repaid with this sh*t. How could he have been fit enough to fly to china to only just not come up, but then miss 5 weeks? What a fkn joke

silversovereign

Haha I hear ya ab. Same here. Held him and drew. Eventually had to trade drew and then he gets a game this week and Rocky doesn’t. That’s SuperCoach!

Peedgd

Very unlucky. Once again he let's the community down for having faith.

Ned_Starkers

I had faith until China… football department funded holiday by the looks.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Classic burn man

Beezneez

This morning's Adelaide paper says there is a slight cloud over Houston and Rocky may come in. Check for late outs.

Bill
Tony

He’ll be dropped again, had a few bad moments

Russty_

Sorry if I offend anyone but I hate this new format, the sizing is all fk'd up, (too big in some places)..a bit out of whack all round… the colours are all dark and gloomy, not really sure why it would require a change of this magnitude at this time of year. I think it was just fine as it was…just my opinion.
Like it or lump it, I'm not feeling encouraged to post here the way it is now. Sorry, but not a fan at all.

Tony

At least it’s a white background now, the black background was terrible!

JEL

Looks like it's gone back to the old format (at least for me).
Happy for them to try new things and see what the response is.
It did seem a bit too dark.

Rick Grimes

Not sure it's worth a boycott over.

The Ranger

I'm the polar opposite. I liked the black.
But then I have Outlook set up with a black background at work and everyone seems to think that's weird.

Lazza

Red writing is not good for many folk regardless of background … and I’m allergic to anything Red and Black related to footy.. makes me wanna throw up 😁

I noticed the umps liked Red and Black very much in the last quarter last night 😡

redherringfc

Frees were 29 – 14, near the end. Not something I’d normally look up, but I needed to check to see if it was just my bias.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

When has that ever stopped ya rust? 🙊

Beezneez

It's very hard to read. I have a torn retina and a drooping eyelid covering the pupil in my good eye so I find it very difficult. I cannot read the time of the posting at all unless I magnify it. I use the icon next to the refresh button to read the article with a white background but doesn't show the comments at all. With you Russty – awful. Also whenever I post something lately I have to re-enter my name and email address which is annoying and stops me from doing so most times. Wish I knew how to prevent it happening.

Tony

Take Clarke’s awkward score or field bewley/setterfield?

Brn

Wondering the same.
Dont think theres much to lose by fielding bewley or setters. Im torn between oscar baker and bewley, but will probobly go bewley because they are plaing calton

DavidC

O Baker and Bewley have only gone 60+ once and are averaging 55. As disappointing as Clarke's 63 is I think I'll take it.

Brn

Yeah but with an average of 54 and 55, there would seem more to gain than lose. – 8 odd points is fine, but the possibility of the rare 80 -100 score (+ 30 odd points) makes it worrh a shot for me

Peedgd

Yeah I have to field 2 spots now crips is out and I have hind and bewley. Not sure if I taken both or chose one not to take? Leaning towards both over that 58

JEL

Yep, it's a bit of a maybe score.
I've got 2 spots to fill with Clarke / Bewley / Hind.
I'm leaning towards Hind to fill the hole left by Cripps, and taking Clarke's score.

JugHead

Will be interesting to hear the chat about Cripps not playing this week. The elephant in the room is the Optus surface. Who knows how serious his injury is, but if it was a line ball decision whether to play him, taking him over to play on a ground that Freo have decided is too hard for training on would have to be a factor.

Sam_01

Just a quick one why has mundy a scoring gone to shit hasn’t tonnes in 4 weeks

Derek

Ross worked out Walters did ok as a midfielder

Trades

6 trades left.
Westhoff F6 Burgess & Gardner bench so I must trade.
Westhoff to Boak
Smith to Cameron via Burgess
Losing my ruck swing
Or get in Lycett?

Ned_Starkers

I wouldn’t stress about a ruck swing for now. Lycett was a good spend at 430. At nearly 500 and some uncertainty about how Ryder returns, mmmm not so much.

Trades

I think dunkley’s too expensive.
Boak Gray or Daniel?

Marcus

I am thinking of replacing Brodie Smith with Daniel Rich.
Is this a good move ?
I can get Laird or Lloyd , but i would rather use the $$ to get a final premium mid.

Ned_Starkers

Especially Lloyd

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Bit sideways for mine

TBone_9

Bringing Westhoff in must be my biggest mistake of the year, if Parker isn’t named for Saints tommorow then I have to trade him, but I would prefer to wait until next week and deal with B. Smith and Hore for now as they will lose coin. Although very tempting to just trade him straight up to R. Gray/Daniel/Marshall and not look back…

TBone_9

That’s all I need to hear hahaha. Westhoff to R. Gray, B. Smith to Logue. Got 365k to play with for upgrades next week, BANG!

TBone_9

Cheers DJ. And I bet you haven’t looked back once mate!

Derek

Hoff to Walters for me.

Although I can go Parker to JJK and have Hoff at F7

What do you reckon fellas

redherringfc

I got Westhoff and Gardner 2 weeks ago. Both are sitting on my forward line with Corbett and I have no dpp’s available to move anyone into the forwards. I only have 26k after already trading Scott to Hately. There are no forward downgrade options. And Westhoff at 376k means I can’t upgrade him.

So Westhoff was a huge mistake, but I’m contemplating topping that one by ditching Cripps, using some dpp magic and getting a decent forward.

Trades

Or trade Westhoff to McDonald

redherringfc

My first thought was:

“I’m not deliberately trying to sabotage my own team.”

But I checked out his scores. Was he playing forward last week? I notice he’s named as full forward this week.

I might trade Hore to McDonald. I’m too stubborn to trade out the Hoff, just yet.

That’s a pretty good suggestion. Thanks.

Trades

Yeah his last few games have been good. No worries.

Peedgd

What a great read!
Get on here and the new layout is so fluid, clean and gorgous.
ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT.

Steeeve

I almost threw my three week trade plan out the window to bring in Hateley. I thought he played well but I'm glad I didn't get him in.

Leaving Hateley out meant I had two options.
1. Bring in Sloane and easily afford my final upgrades.
2. Bring in J Kelly and hope all goes right to afford my last upgrade – would be a few grand in it!!!

I've gone with option 2. Gotta swing for the fences. Good luck in the run home everyone, I'm definitely gonna need it!

Ned_Starkers

The plan was to bring in Ryan, but I just couldn’t resist Sloane’s price. Leaves me Duursma/Logue D5/6 until I can trade O’Brien and Duursma for last 2 Premo spots (Any 2 of Ryan, Stewart, Rich). And then 5 trades to see it through.

Ryan

Who should I bring in, Sloane or Oliver?

Ned_Starkers

Why not both? I’ve had Oliver all year and he’s been a little disappointing at times, but his gone 114 or better in 5 of his last 6. Sloane has a good run home and I couldn’t resist him this week either.

Stupid Coach

Great work Kev. 12 trades left. Contemplating one of the following trade options this week:

1. Answerth to Logue and Walsh to Neale.
2. Answerth to Logue and Stack to Bont.
3. Wilkie to Logue and Stack to Neale or Bont
4. Answerth to Liogue and Stack to Hind – already have Baker, Brewley and Clarke.

Leaning towards Option 2 given Answeth's high BE.

VC – Lloyd Vs Sun's or Danger at the cattery.

Do I take Clarke's score for Cripps or role the dice with Brewley or Baker.

Thanks community.

Ned_Starkers

If you’re a premium or two short in the middle, I’d say you gotta go 1 or 2. By weight of numbers, I’d say your keen to get rid of Answerth (I did too this week). I got rid of Walsh and Stack a couple of weeks ago, they’ve done enough, so take your pick.

As for captains, Gawn and Grundy haven’t let me down yet, but I can see the temptation for Danger at home at least.

Stupid Coach

Thanks Ned. My current midfield is McCrae, Cripps, Merrett, Coniglio, Oliver, Sloane, Walsh, Stack (Clarke, Brewley, Baker). It is either upgrading Walsh to Neale or Stack to Bont. I would like to upgrade Settlefield or Parker in my forward line instead but they haven't generated as much cash as I would hope and Neale/Bont appear to be at a great price at the moment.

COREYSC

Jed Bews comes in for Geelong tonight for his customary 1 game for the year (against Adelaide) to play on Eddie Betts and keep him to one goal

BigAl_15

Hey guys, I have 13 trades left and $40,000

Not sure what trades to do:

Balta – Caleb Daniel
Balta – Marshall

I’m definitely going to trade Hore – Logue but not sure about who to trade Balta to
I already have T Kelly, Dangerfield, Mundy and Boak as my premo forwards

Thanks

Lazza

Marshall, only because he has a higher ceiling …. but either is a good choice..

The Ranger

Normally I'd take Clarkes 63 but I'm tempted to risk going with Hind instead, he looked good last week.

Fritzzzy

Community thoughts on David Mundy? He's had a shocking last few rounds but only $446k for someone who can bounce back to 100-105 average. I'm sitting with $481k needing a Fwd… so choices are limited…

Lazza

I'd wait for his first "return to form" game before making the move Fritzzzy.. maybe think about Robbie Gray, or Cameron or even Heeney, though he is probably in the same boat as Mundy.

Fritzzzy

I'd love to but have to make the move this week with Petruccelle out. Gray's a good option too. Considered Cameron but he's too flakey for me. I'm just not clear why Mundy's dropped so hard. He broke his nose against the Pies, then dropped form since. I don't think his role has changed at all though? I guess he's always been somewhat inconsistent.

Sam_01

Similar position mate I brought Toby Greene in as a cheapy for ROB a while ago bc I needed points on field, he has been alright but I’m having a look for a cheeky upgrade
Hawkins will be cheap soon and mundy aswell

Fritzzzy

I think I'm going to bite the bullet on Mundy. He'll push out a couple of sub 70's before the end of the year… but he'll also more than likely throw in a few +120's and at least 4/5 +100's. Or do his hammy in Q1 and burn me. #supercoach

Brn

There are better options i reckon, depending on who you have got. PODs can go both ways

Mike

Tough decisions are to be made <img src=&quotcomment image" width="1"/>

Rick Grimes

Anyone actually know how bad Cripps is? The "multiple" weeks rumour is concerning. I'm not sure I can hold him for 3-4 weeks. And when comes back is he restricted. Or do they pull the pin on his season. Hmmmm

Sam_01

cripps is a warrior I’ll back him to come back in a couple of weeks

Brn

He will be good max 2 weeks

TRIGGA_HAPPY

It's a head scratcher ricko due to the half truths and rumour mill going onto overdrive.

This is where for the sake of supercoach for the medos to come out and say point blank not we think Cripps will miss 1-2 or 4-6.

With trades remaiming in the shed I probably best just to go into a holding pattern.

TommyC99

Is it worth trading ROB now to Lloyd this week or downgrade Answerth – Hind and get lloyd in the next week or 2?

Ja191

You’ve held rob this long my aswell wait and get his $ now id he downgrading to logue/hind/naish

Trades

Keep Hore or Smith?

Ja191

Is neither an option? But if I had to pick I’d prob keep Smith it’s pretty 50/50 tho

Brn

I agree with smith, but a lot dont. Guess we will see

hedski

Naish omitted….
Guess I can loop Smith with Answorth now, I'll take anything over 35 from Brodie, Yay.

Holty01

🤔 that will change my trades for the week.

Russty_

I wouldn't even bother Hed, I'm just leaving Smith on, Answerth is a spud.

hedski

Yeah was tongue in cheek Russty.
Never know tho, Smith could get injured 5 minutes in so might as well take advantage of the loophole.
Go cats.

Russty_

Go Cats mate and go Danger VC! 🙂

hedski

Danger Captain!!!

Russty_

Good luck to you too then Sir!

Holty

Stewart or Ryan for my last spot in the backline?

Holty01

Well hello fellow Holty. I’d say pretty close but Ryan has the bigger ceiling imo

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Its like im seeing double

Maverick_

3 Holty's in one community… Hello fellow Holtys
I like ryan for the simple reason of his huge ceiling

TheLostBoys

Plan to bring in Logue for either Hore or Duursma, but not sure which. Who do we think will score better over the next few weeks?

Also if going for overall, can we have one of hore / duursma / logue as D6 until Whitfield returns, or need to go for another premo def ASAP?

BigAl_15

I’d say keep hore as he is more consistent despite his high breakeven

Daniel

With Naish dropped who do I loophole with Logue this week, brodie smith away to the cats or james sicily against darling and jjk?

Ja191

Smith easily, I reckon Sicily will play back now and easily outscore Smith

BradleyTC99

Probably a stupid question but is there any merit in going Naish – Hind instead of answerth? Netting no money at all but already have gardner and Young as pointless rookies. I only have 7 trades left (after this week) so probably pointless but thought i'd get the community's opinion!

Lazza

Naish won’t lose you any money this week, whereas Answerth will … easy peasy

Russty_

Naish was pretty stiff to get dropped I feel after 2 decent rookie scores, I have him too and think he'll get another run whereas Answerth is very Balta-like but without the few big scores, Hind named as half fwd onfield is encouraging and I think you'd be better off doing something that makes you some money.

Dash

10 Trades – 125K. I'm stuck
Thinking Marsh > Logue & Duursma to Sloane via DPP
Could do Answerth > Logue & Duursma to Stewart
Any other trade thoughts or which option is best. Not much cash generation happening

Lloyd, Houli. Laird, Sicily, Duursma, Answerth (Burgess, Marsh)
Fyfe, Macrae, Dunkley, Neale, Setterfield, Oliver, D Clarke, Bewley (Hately, O Baker, Cripps)
Gawn, Grundy (Bines)
Danger, T Kelly, Heeney, Boak, R Gray, J Cameron (Gardner, M Parker)

Lazza

Hey Dash, not sure about Marsh, but Answerth and Durrsmaa both have BEs above their average … I think Sloane is a better option than Stewart.. so I’d go option 1 if Marsh has maxed out for you.

Dash

Well Marsh has been dropped by StKilda. May or may not get back in. Answerth keeps getting a game, so may be some insurance even though he may score a 40. Not sure.

Russty_

Hi Dash, I also like Marsh to Logue and Duursma to Sloane, can't go wrong really unless Logue turns out to be fool's gold but I don't think he is, and he has good js.

Lazza

Hey Neil (NDD), we are head-to-head in the JR Mega League … SC is predicting 2411 v 2404 in your favour … looking fwd to the battle .. good luck.. cheers, Lazza (Raw Tiger)

Russty_

Sounds like a nail biter Lazza, lots of close predictions in the leagues this week, I've got Holty twice and am up against plenty of high end coaches this week, DBB, Rick Grimes, JohnDJ, Instagator Col, hoping a few of my Pods stand up, good luck this week mate.

Lazza

Cheers, Russty… you’ve got a tough gig this week..

Russty_

If I go well from here, I might just make the top 16 LOL

TheLostBoys

With Cripps out for Carlton, will that impact Logues scoring – as the blues may struggle to get the pill out of the center and into the forward line for Logue to intercept?

Russty_

He could be a bit down on his last few weeks possibly but it's not reason enough to not get him in now.

TheLostBoys

Absolutely – as long as he's not a late withdrawal, I'm bringing him in! I was more thinking about who to start on the field, Logue or Hore (or Duursma if I trade out Hore for Logue instead).

Russty_

I'd say, just because of how most rookies this year on their 3rd games have gone…start Hore over Logue.
Most rooks seem to shit the bed on their 3rd game…and Hore over Duursma too…higher average.

hedski

Could improve his scores if the balls getting bombed in willy Nilly.

Derek

He would/should be on bench

Russty_

Is anyone out there 1 for 1 in the tips so far?…I tipped Giants by 35 lol

TheLostBoys

I tipped the Dons by 5…..but then I do every week as I'm a supporter 🙂

Russty_

Nice work mate!…I usually tip against my team (the Saints)..because they mostly suck.
Hope you get your others right as it could give you a huge leg up this week in your tipping leagues.

TheLostBoys

I wish but sadly tipping the dons each week hasn't exactly helped my tipping results most weeks!

Russty_

Gotta play this game with your head and not your heart mate…especially in tipping!

Brn

Unless you are a cats fan 😀

hedski

I nearly tipped against us last week Brn knowing how bad we are after byes.
Couldn't do it.

Russty_

Yeah Brn…certainly helps when your team is good 🙂

KeenButClueless

One of the weeks i dread the most. Had a very simple plan for this week that I sketched out prior to the byes. This week was Duursma and Parker for Treloar and Naish. Left rocky as my M8 and Newnes as my F6, and had Moore seining ad an emergency across all lines, with some ok loophole options. Not a great team, but not totally crap either. I hate this sort of week, because with Newnes dropping a turd last week and getting himself dropped accordingly, and Rocky being Rocky, it all has to change. So it’s Rocky and Newnes our for Sloane and Garner. Nothing like I planned. Duursma is F8, and Parker is on the pine (thankfully). Now I also need to fill a mid and a forward spot in the next few weeks. Am I crazy to consider McKernan as F6 with Bellchambers out? Yeah, it’s close to that desperate 😩

So I hate these weeks, because they inevitably turn to crap and the original plan was still probably the right one and I end up in an angry funk on Sunday night.

Good luck to everyone this week

Russty_

Hey Keen, if you meant Duursma is M8, you could see how Hannebery goes this week, if he scores well again, could allow you to get someone better than McKernan

KeenButClueless

That’s a really good option Russty. Thanks for that.

Brn
