SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 19

Published by Kev on

I’ve got a confession to make, community. I, and I cannot stress this enough, WAS, a Coldplay fan. I know, I know. We were all young and stupid once. My admittance of shame has a point, this weekend the lyrics of The Scientist floated into my head. 

Nobody said it was easy / No one over said it would be this hard ♪

Can we just have ONE week where there isn’t an injury or late out to relevant premium? In my haste to have a full team of premiums, I elected not to worry about things like “extra trades” and “reliable bench cover”. Help me, SuperCoach Gods!

So while I’ve been mentally preparing myself for whatever balderdash the Gods will throw at me this week, Damo joined the boys in a #Winner’sPodcast where they all just dumped on Adelaide for a bit (and some other stuff too). Barron is halfway through his 2020 rookie preview having looked into the lists of Geelong, Gold Coast, and GWS this week. The days of the perma cap are alive and well, but is there another option besides Brodie Grundy? Get the lowdown with Damo here. Any trades you’re making at this stage have to be bang on, get Statty’s best choices in this weeks cheat sheet

The News

No room for Josh Caddy tonight as the Tigers are taking in an unchanged lineup for the first time this year (?? maybe ??)  James Aish is one of four outs for the Pies. Matt Scharenberg returns as well as small forward Jamie Elliot.

Grant Birchall is back for the Hawks in their only change, replacing the injured Jarman Impey. Brisbane have recalled Josh Walker for the suspended Harris Andrews. The Blues have conceded the ruck dual against Reilly O’Brien by “managing” Matthew Kruezer. Patrick Wilson (MID – 147k) will play his first game for the year and second for the club. Tyson Stengle (FWD – 123.9k) is back after kicking 3 in his club debut. Hugh Greenwood and Eddie Betts have both been omitted. Will Schofield will replace the omitted Tom Cole at the Eagles, but still no Shannon Hurn as he becomes the latest old man to fall to the dreaded calf injury. LDU and Paul Ahern have been recalled by the ‘Roos. Charlie Dixon is dead again despite Port listing him as ‘omitted’ Paddy Ryder returns as well as my defensive cover for Hurn in the form of Joel GarnerJake Stein didn’t last long at the Giants, but Jackson Hately returns as well as Phil Davis. Matt Parker has been dropped by the Saints for Ben Long. Steven May has sent shockwaves through the comp by being injured again. Big Preussy is also a casualty.  

On Sunday, Rhylee West’s (117.3k) debut is confirmed and the R3 for 12% of teams, Jordan Sweet (RUC – 102.4k) is on the extended bench. Remember Will Hayes? Me neither, but he’s also on that extended bench. Dale Morris could also make his return. Josh Schache and Matt Suckling are the only confirmed outs so far. All you need to know about Freo’s changes is that Nat Fyfe is BACK #FyfeisLyfe. The Swans have added 5 new names with Will Hayward the only confirmed out so far. Geelong are managing Zach Tuohy and Gary Rohan for the trip, Scooter Selwood has been named for what could be his first game this year. For the final game of the round, Jez McLennan (DEF – 117.3k) has been named by the Suns and could debut. Lachie Weller and Anthony Miles have also been named. Will Brodie is their only confirmed out. Zac Clarke has been named for the Bombers in a sign they’re not taking this fixture seriously at all. Conor McKenna is off for his brothers wedding and Dyson Heppell will miss with injury,  

The House of Evil

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

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

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

It’s luxury trade season! (if you’ve already completed your side, or just want to rage trade that prick James Sicily). I feel like I’ve already used 7 trades this year on trading Lachie Whitfield in and out of my side. His two games after returning from injury have been 101 and 119SC and is easily a top 6 defender. Currently 521k (his cheapest price for the year) and helping himself to a larger portion of the GWS pie that is missing midfield guns Gonigliog and Josh Kelly, GWS have a friendly fun home with a clash against Gold Coast for the SuperCoach grand final.

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

Cast your mind back to round 2 and the Draftstars contest between Richmond and Collingwood was pretty brutal for the Tigers. Amazingly, 17 Collingwood players scored higher than Richmond’s leading scorer in a ‘keepings off’ style of gameplay.

The media narrative has the Tigers taking this comfortably, but the Pies have had the wood over the Tigers since the 2018 prelim. Bucks will be using this as motivation for his side have been a bit out form in recent times.

RUC

As always with Collingwood games, it’s Brodie Grundy (17.5k) or not. There’s not a lot of value on this slate, especially in the mids where there is only one player under 11k. I’ll never talk you off Grundy, but you’ll need to take a lot of risks elsewhere to fit him in. Ivan Soldo (9.6k) is the more budget friendly option. He has hit 8x value in two of his past three. Then there is the enigma wrapped in a riddle that is Mason Cox (FWD / 7.6k). He’s been largely out of form this year but he transforms into a competent centre half when he plays Richmond. A 3 game average of 83 would be a 11x value game from the American. If you believe in past history as a guide, lock him in (if it’s wet tonight, avoid!)

DEF

Collingwood are leading the comp in points conceded to top 1 defenders these past 5 weeks. Before I get into options though, let’s discuss Chris Mayne. He’s been used as a lock down forward recently, with jobs against Hurn (17 disposals / 77DS) and Haynes (13 disposals / 60DS). Bachar Houli (13.8k) will probably be the one that draws attention. His record at the ‘G so far this year is outstanding, averaging 112DS. Jack Crisp (14.2k) is another on a hot streak, having not scored below 101DS in 5 weeks.

At the bottom of the list, Isaac Quaynor (7.6k) is a solid value play and Jeremy Howe (8.8k) is priced way too cheap. If the Pies play their keepings off style again Howe will see plenty of marks. Matt Scharenberg (9.5k) returns tonight and will probably step into the Aish role. I’m a fan of Shaz, but he’s priced just about right for mine. I’d rather wait and see how he goes.  

FWD

I may be a little tinsy bit bias, but Tom Lynch (9.6k) looks OMINOUS. Jezza kicked 6 last week on Collingwood’s defence and Jack Darling 3 the week before. Lynch hit an even 100 last week for the first time this year and is primed to do so again. Shai Bolton (10.7k) is excelling in an increased midfield role, with the Tigers unchanged tonight I see no reason why this won’t continue. Jordan de Goey (11.2k) has also seen increased midfield time, but his ceiling doesn’t look quite as attractive as Bolton’s. Similar to Howe, if Brody Mihocek (DEF / 10.5k) gets his marking game on (he took 12 in this fixture earlier in the year), he’ll smash through value. 

MID

Chris Mayne (8.5k) is the only cheat midfielder tonight. However his tagging duties have bombed his scoring. He’s pricy, but Adam Treloar (15.6k) is still the best Draftstars option in Collingwood’s top 4. Taylor Adams (14.3k) returned last week and punched out a handy 111Ds in an 8 goal loss. For the Tigers, Dion Prestia (14k) has been the form midfielder over the past two months for the Tigers. He has dropped below 100DS twice in that time, but he lacks the ceiling of Adams or Treloar if you’re paying up. Jack Graham (11.3k) has rediscovered his tackling floor, averaging 8.4 in his his past 5. Good luck!

Been waiting all morning for this Kev 😍

My team is as follows:
6 trades 165k

DEF: Lloyd Williams Hurn* Sicily Ryan BSmith (Burgess naish)

MID: macrae Neale Fyfe Cripps treloar Oliver Sloane crouch (clarke bey KDunkley)

RUCK: Gawn ROB (bines)

FWD: danger Marshall Dunkley TKelly Heeney Cameron (setterfield gardner)

Hurn obviously out.. let’s hope Burgess makes the cut tonight! I have 3 options below but feel free too throw new ideas my way always enjoy your input 🙂 I’m locked into finals comfortably in 8/10 leagues top 4 in most.

Option 1:
Hurn -> houli/crisp
ROB -> Grundy
Will miss Whitfield all together probably but no Burgess onfield, 4 trades remain $0 bank

Option 2:
Setterfield -> hill
ROB -> grundy
Burgess will be D7 BUT allows me to get Whitfield next week if Hurn misses again. 4 trades 180k bank!!

Option 3:
Setterfield -> hill
Hurn -> Whitfield
Miss ROB too grundy but will be next weeks trade
4 trades 368k bank!!

TelescopicCox

I like Option 2 Mav. I think Grundy will be a must have over finals, and hoping Burgess can cover you this week

Maverick_

Thanks telescopic for the reply. Let’s hope Burgess is named tonight 🤞🏼

TOPHAWK1

Option 2 for me Mav. Get Grundy in today and whack the VC straight on his nose. Grundy will go close to winning the Brownlow this year. He is a must have. Good luck mate. TH

Maverick_

Cheers TH, I think 2 is my preferred but Burgess is still on an extended bench. Fingers crossed he’s named tonight. Grundy May do some nasty nasty things too soldo in front of a packed out G tonight I feel for soldo.

SC_Kev7

Sorry, Mav! I'll chuck option 1 into the ring. It's possible West Coast mothball Hurn until he's 110%. They're pretty safe in the top 4 and calf injuries are nothing to mess around with, especially when you're 31. Whitfield has a 90-ish b.e and the rest of your team looks in good shape. You could luxury trade Sicily, Ryan, Smith to him next week.

Maverick_

Thanks for the reply Kev.
The only thing that puts me off 1. Is the $0 bank after my two trades this week but option 1 does get me points on field getting houli/crisp especially if burgess is not named.. It’d take another 2 trades next week to fund the luxury trade.

SC_Kev7

That's fair. Trades now are just plugging holes for mine. Not interested in up/downgrading

Maverick_

BURGESS IS NAMED!!!

and in option 2 burgess will be D6 not D7 sorry

TOPHAWK1

Great write up Kev! No trades for TH this week. Got all the rooks playing except for Gardner and Bines and all premos named. Touch wood. Good to see ya back Fyfe!! Good luck to everyone this round!💪👊

SC_Kev7

Cheers, Hawk. Same, no trades this week (yet…). Hurn will be on my mind all day!

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Will see how the Q man goes tonight with the E on him

If fails will finish off my defence this week

Thanks logue but time to go pal.

TelescopicCox

My team is a bit stuck ATM. 3 trades left & $160K bank. Pushing for a top 10K finish (currently 12K)

Any tips community:

B – Lloyd, Whitfield, Williams, Crisp, Sicily, Andrews* (Logue, Naish)
M – Macrae, Fyfe, Cripps, Treloar, Neale, M.Crouch, Danger, Heeney (Clarke, Hateley, Bewely)
R – Gawn, Grundy (Bines)
F – Dunkley, Boak, Lycett, Kelly, J.Cameron, Chol (Young, Gardner)

I will loop Chol tonight and see if it's worth taking his F6 score.

1. Logue > B.Smith.
Keeps Andrews as a loop D7

2. Andrews > Ryan or Howe
Look to upgrade Chol to a premo MID for the run home in the coming weeks

3. If Chol goes less than 50:
Andrews > Taranto
Play Logue at D6 and upgrade him next week

TelescopicCox

Think I've figured it out!

This week, Andrews & R.Young to Z.Merrett & Hill.
Next week. D.Clarke to a premo DEF around the 400K mark

Leaves me with "full premo" and cover on every line per below:

B – Logue
M – Hill, Hateley, Bewley
F – Chol

Thoughts? It is less than ideal but I think using DPP's and keeping cover is the best I can do

SamuraiPizzaCat

Not bad.. took me a while thinking through your DPPs but I guess it all works.

Young > Hill
Andrews > Merrett (Gardner to DEF, Heeney to FWD)

Next week,
D Clarke (MID) > 400k DEF (Hill to MID, Gardner to FWD)

TelescopicCox

Yep that’s how I got there. It’s not ideal but I feel it’s the best I can do.

I want Taranto but that 20k saving on Merrett could be big for that last defender

TBone_9

I know it’s probably a silly question but is it worth trading Parker down to Hill (would have a bench mid/fwd swingset) if I already have Clarkeand Bewley on mid bench and Chol on fwd bench? 4 trades left and full premo. Guess it comes down to how much a single trade could be worth this time of year

Maverick_

3 trades and a solid bank would be enough to get you through finals if you made the trade. How much $$ you got before this move though? If you have plenty of cash already hold off but if you have $0 make the move get some cash in for future luxuries/injuries

TBone_9

Gday Mav, only got 17k in the bank for now. It feels good doing the downgrade to make money, but with Hurn out this week it would mean I need to bench him and play Answerth. It wouldn’t feel right going into finals with 2 trades left and Westhoff still in my team haha

KeenButClueless

If you are full premo with 4 trades, that would be a big advantage compared to full premo with no trades. In the event that one of your premo’s is out, those with no trades would have to use their bench. You might be able to trade instead. I think it would be better to save your trades for injuries, rather than using for bench cover

TBone_9

I reckon you might be right there Clueless. Trades in the bank is a huge upper hand on those with no trades but really good bench cover. Would rather have an underperforming premo on field rather than a bench rookie come finals time

Stupid Coach

I agree with Maverick. I have a similar dilemma and looking to offload one bench mid/fwd swing set (Settlefield) with another bench mid/fwd swing set in Hill. I currently have five trades left and not a full premo, however, I am only thinking about it as I only have 60k in the bank which is not enough to do a straight upgrade.

TBone_9

Gday Coach, that sounds like a really solid plan to me mate. Big difference if you can go one up one down this week to get to full premo. Going to 3 trades feels fine, but getting to 2 or less makes me feel itchy. Who are you looking to upgrade with the Setterfield money mate?

Stupid Coach

Nah, I was actually thinking of downgrading Settlefield to Hill this week as it is the only way to give me enough cash to upgrade someone in my forward line like Jarrod Cameron next week or Wilkie in my defence the following week. I would like to have downgraded Young or Gardener, however, they have hardly made any cash at all (or in Gardener's cash none whatsoever) so I think this is my only plan.

TBone_9

Oh I get you now mate. Yeah I think that’s a good call, Wilkie has been going alright as a rookie but he’s also made more cash than J. Cameron so maybe if you can trade him up to a Whit/Houli/Salem that sounds good to me

LordDeb

Just used my last trade, wish me luck :/<img src=&quotcomment image" width="1"/>

Brn

Reconsider?

Be prepared to lose a grundy/fyfe type.

It happens and it sucks

Good luck

hedski

I will more than likely be joining you tomorrow LordDeb, may Gary have mercy on us.

The Ranger

Bloody hell Hedski! Have you ever made it to the end of a season without running out of trades?!
I thought you were gonna hold ‘em this year?!

Russty_

These guys that post I've got 8 trades left and 500k in the bank, what should I do?…I just think, do whatever the hell you want to do mofo…lol
No sympathy from me!

hedski

I tried Ranger, still have the one but I'm fighting for my spot in cash league this week so need to go all out, I have cover on each line, been decimated by injuries again this season.
And no, no I've never made it to the last round with trades in hand.
Maybe next year? Ha ha.

SamuraiPizzaCat

Ok I have two problems I'm trying to address. a) Hurn out with no bench cover. b) Bring in last premo upgrade. 6 trades and $131k in the bank. My team is:

Lloyd, Williams, Hurn*, Laird, Sicily, Ryan (Naish, Gardner)
Macrae, Fyfe, Neale, Oliver, Cripps, M Crouch, Shiel, Dangerfield (D Clarke, Stocker, I Hill)
Grundy, Gawn (Z Clarke)
Dunkley, Marshall, Boak, Heeney, Kelly, Chol (Setterfield, Young)

Options..

1) Setterfield > Merrett (Danger back to fwd line)
Chol > Birchall (Gardner to fwd bench)
This would bring Birchall in as D7 cover. Danger moves back to fwds. Merrett comes in as final mid.
Downside no bench cover in fwd line this week. Birchall questionable cover.

2) Hurn > Whitfield
Gets Whitfield in to cover Hurn. But wouldn't be able to do mid upgrade until next week. Could also still consider bringing in Birchall or a rookie for D7 cover.

3) Hurn > Stewart
Setterfield > Merrett (Danger back to fwd line)
Would give me full premium on field this week. Downside is it's a slight downgrade in defence – Hurn and Whitfield top 2 & 3 defenders by avg points while Stewart is 7th. Plus no money and still no bench cover in defence.

Thoughts?

TelescopicCox

Tough one. Defs between option 1 & 3. Id lean to 3 just because I don’t trust Birchall’s body

Maverick_

I was actually thinking definately between 2&3.
I don't trust birchalls body he played 1 game and needed a week off that is worrying you cant spend 200k on a shakey D7.

I like option 2.
It doesn't use all ya $$ and you get whitfield whose a jet he may avg 120 here on out stewart may get you 90-95.
You have the luxury of looping chol/setterfield this round too so that's handy I hope one can give you a worthy onfield score.

Brn

Whitfield. Option 2

Joe T

Best 2 mids out of Treloar, Duncan, Parker, Sloane and Taranto?

Maverick_

Jeez that is tough everyone will see it differently Joe there all pretty even.
Treloar & duncan for me

SamuraiPizzaCat

I like Treloar & Duncan best out of those options too. But all very close.

Brn

Parker and toss a coin for sloane/treloar

Jon Doe

rank best to worst please stewart houli crisp

Maverick_

Houli
Crisp
Stewart

SamuraiPizzaCat

Stewart
Houli
Crisp

Brn

Houli
Stewart
Crisp

Stewart could go bang

Nuggety

Clutch decision time. Currently top 3.5k rank but playing for leagues and sitting top 4 pretty safely.. If I cull Clarke (Ess) i can trade Logue and finish my defence with Whitfield. If I muck around a bit with DPP I can cull Burgess and finish it with Laird.
Is Laird with Clarke at M9 better than Whitfield with Hill at M9?? 2 trades either way leaving me with 5 left afterwards. Wirherden will be D7 when Hurns back.. What are peoples thoughts?

SamuraiPizzaCat

Clarke would be nice bench cover, but I think it's worth bringing in Whitfield. Laird averaging 96 this year, vs Whitfield 110.

Brn

Need whitfield.

Geez my defence of Stewart, Laird, and Sicily has been bad, but they are still up there with top defenders

Russty_

Hoping Stewart has a good one this week with Touhy out

Nuggety

Cheers guys, welcome Whitfield! (Again)

GreendaleFC

Finally full premo bringing in Oliver for Stack. Got 1 rookie for coverage in every line and 2 spare trades.

Also I was looking over my old trades and round 9 was a massive sliding doors moment for me. I was choosing between Hawkins and Marshall. Ended up going for Hawkins as I thought he was a bit safer. So far it's cost me about 450 points, and a difference in ranking from 4700 to 1500.

Russty_

Ouch that trade must hurt Greendale, Hawkins has been reliable last few years too so it's weird this year how he's going, understand the pick, just unlucky cause Marshall's been unbelievable this year.

Brn

I hesitantly picked up Marshall in round 11 because be was cheap. Didnt expect scores anywhere near this. Hasnt gone below 116 for me

Big G

Go early on Langlands?

Craig

Need help peoples. 3 trades left and 100k in the bank but still have ROB as my R2. Can straight swap to Gawn but tempted to hold 1 more week with Kruzer not playing. Is it worth the gamble to get that last bit of coin out of ROB? playing for leagues and safe to make finals either way.

Russty_

ROB might not make as much as you think this week and Gawn could go up more too if he has a big one.
This could be the week to do it, Phillips can still Ruck ok.

Craig

I actually have 117k so as long as I can still do the one trade to upgrade to Gawn I am happy. Want to keep those 3 trades as long as possible. It's just that worry if I have to use 2 I won't do the trade at all and I am stuck with ROB. I think I just have to bite the bullet now.but every cent counts this time of year.

Russty_

You can afford to wait a week then, and you're ok in your leagues, thought your money was a bit tighter.

Brn

If only his floor wasn't so low.

Worth the gamble this week for sure. Could score more than gawn easy.

Ned_Starkers

5 trades left($75k bank) and confusion reigns… benches too stocked with playing rooks
Def: Answerth and Naish, with Logue still on field and Hurn out
Mid: Duursma, DClarke, Hately
Fwd: Burgess and Setterfield
League result doesn’t matter. What would you do? Only premo missing that I want is Whitfield but could wait til next week.

JohnDJ59

That's good cover Ned, I'd hold your trades for now.

Russty_

Taylor Adams is out for anyone who might have him.

Holty01

Good luck everyone for the weekend.

Maverick_

you too Holty.
Hopefully Burgess can make double figures for me this weekend as I'm holding hurn, plenty of luck needed there.

Russty_

Same to you Holty!…and good luck with Burgess Mav, hope he gets more than 20 for ya lol

Russty_

Tight in the top 8 there Neil, except for Dazza who's smashing everyone..good luck mate.

hedski

You too Holty 👍

hedski

Good luck in the draft elimination Neil

Saritz

Hately or Clarke on the ground? I can’t believe I have every mid playing and can’t loop :/

I think I’m going to bad in Hately with his magoos form!??

Russty_

I'd go Clarke, but back your gut mate.

Glenn

Have 4 trades left and only D.Clarke left on the field to upgrade. Thoughts on downgrading ROB to a ruck rookie to allow me to have over 500k to play with for my final two trades?

DavidC

Yep, that's too much coin on the bench.

iLoveNMFC

Hurn to Laird, Crisp or Houli? Quick!

Russty_

Laird!

Holty01

Think about it. If you still need to trade tomorrow then Laird it is.

iLoveNMFC

Ended up going Houli, all games left are at the G and much higher scoring potential than Laird.

Jon Doe

got a quick one
Chesterfield or Clarke to hill???
Clarke to hill gives me a mid fwd swing but 30k less in bank

Jon Doe

setterfield

Holty01

Lol. Treloar is on 27 points after 2 min of the game with 1 kick for a goal. Wow

Russty_

Back to 17 now…?

Brn

Yeah saw that and thought it was bull. Just show that a good start can work wonders for sc. Dont have dusty or treloar but think they are both robbed at this point

Russty_

Poor ole Pies have forgotten how to score in games, Cox up fwd ain't helping either.

Brn

Cant believe i tipped pies.

After the last few years i honestly hate lots of tigers supporters. Change my mind

Brn

Grundy let down by his midfield. All the taps and no good rovers. Wow – i just insulted both teams tonight. People will love me

Brn

Houli lots more ball and no skill. Eichmond just everywhere

Russty_

I'm a Saints man Brn…just noticed lately Pies really struggling to score.
I think Tiger's GF was a one off aberration…lol

Brn

Geez its good that u are here to chat to rusty. I might be sc addicted, but you are always here for a chat too

Brn

Shame anout the draft team. Looks only minor hammy

Russty_

Good thing about draft mate, you can always pish em off next week haha

Russty_

Helps that this game is not really worth watching…lol, if it was close I'd be watching the game more.

Maverick_

glad i didnt bring in crisp or houli this week burgess may outscore crisp at this rate lol

Brn

Houli is not even good but he racking it up

Brn

Cotchin faked injury for a few weeks off with kid.

Grundy will easily be looped

Russty_

Yeah possibly…wish I didn't bring him into my draft side this week.

Brn

On second thoughts, grundy wont be getting his 'close game sc boost'. Might only wnd up with 120iah

Brn

Grundy way short on around the ground touches, as are pies in general

Maverick_

had grundy penciled in for 175+ I only bought him in tonight

But he is a second half specialist.
Go you good thing you

Brn

Its funny when we find a 130-140 underwhelming from him.

Maverick_

yeah very valid point Brn.
He's not human is he he is something else but i think he will get 120 tonight.
Can't get a whole lot to advantage and minimal influence around the ground .

Brn

He breaks the supercoach algorithms imo. The scoring system works for everyone except him. What a gun

TRIGGA_HAPPY

150 in a canter

Maverick_

it's unfortunate the brownlows a midfielders medal
both gawn and grundy are two of the most influential players in the whole league let alone there own team and ruck position. it's a joke the umpires need to change the way the look at the game

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Be a good fight, might b close.

Few having a good year…

Maverick_

we need tigers to keep piling on goals because that's the only way grundy is scoring points, his hitouts. he will be lucky to go 120

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Not sure why lynchy was just sitting there in draft as a free agent

But happy with adding him in and putting him on the ground this week

Lad looks sharp, fit and hungry just like the tiges.

Russty_

Great pickup Trigs…looks like he's finally hitting his straps.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Mind you

This from a man who traded parker to smith eh rust? 🥺

Russty_

Hehe still happy with Parker as one of my main mids bud, thanks for that !…Smith might've come good if he didn't injure himself.

Brn

Grundy under 130 by the looks. What to do..

SamuraiPizzaCat

102 at 3 quarter time, I think he'll get there?

SamuraiPizzaCat

Ok quiet last quarter. Will actually have to choose a captain this week 🙁

Maverick_

I'm filthy i want 140 minumim.
Watch ROB go 150 v phillips now and i shoulda went Hurn to whitfield instead of playing burgess :/
Need a big 4th here from brodie.

Maverick_

Tigers don't need a ruckman when brodie's tapping straight down there throat anyway, jesus.

Russty_

Gotta cap someone else now.

Brn

If anyone had dusty they qould be mad. 27 touches and two goals for 74 right now

Russty_

Sloppy sloppy!…looks like Jack Graham might be a good player in the future.

Pranav

Yeah I own him and feel a bit stiff he’s been amazing tonight imo. Weird thing is dusty is someone that I’m used to seeing get a bit of extra love from CD

Dan

Yeah, he was absolutely robbed. 38 touches, 2 goals, for 104.

Brn

Rip crisp owners

Lazza

😥

TOPHAWK1

He was useless last night. He has turned into a clanger boy. Close to being banished to the never again saloon.😡💩

Ja191

How does Grundy have 15 more Sc points than dusty

Russty_

38 and 2 goals…his d/e must've been pig swill.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

he does turn it over a bit does dust

watching the game tonight he hacked it forward a few times just to be picked off by one of the many tiger defenders

Brn

Thoughts on oing gawn over Grundy?

Saritz

Definitely

Russty_

Hey JohnDJ59, make sure you get Fyfe onfield mate and Oscar Baker with the E on him.

JohnDJ59

No worries Russty, I was watching Dark on Netflix and didn't have to do anything with my team until tomorrow apart from having the VC on Grundy and Stack on field, thought I would wait to see if I needed to put Hurn on field as C before I completed my team, now I know I don't need to, I have put my team together as it should be.

Sam_01

Grundy has failed us! Panic room intensifies
On a side note thanks treloar
Gawn/macrae/Neale/dunkman to get the armband now

Lazza

Those of us without Grundy now have two C options vs those with Grundy.
Beautiful…

TOPHAWK1

Thats good for you this week, but remember what carnage Grundy has caused non Grundy owners this season. This is a blue 🌚moon event for us Grundy owners! 😂 I am sure we will cope.

gvaa1
dontblushbaby

Hold or trade Hurn ? I was going to trade Duursma to Whitfield , only have Burgess as bench cover , have 6 trades and 520k , playing for cash leagues where I am top 3 in all of them ,

Maverick_

If ya top 3 and have cover i'd hold hurn still go duursma too whitfield.
Back hurn in to return next week hurn and whitfield looks alot stronger than whitfield and duursmsa.

Maverick_

Bought in grundy last night for ROB wacked the VC straight on him along with K.Dunkley onfield with the C on his head before the tiges and pies game had even started i was that bloody confident. So who is everyone now captaining?

Marshall going to match gawn?
Is Fyfe's elbow 100%?
Can JDunkley keep this purple patch going?
Danger, Macrae LLoyd?

hedski

My opponent doesn't have Dunks so I'm thinking of rolling the dice on him under the roof at Marvel Mav.

Maverick_

Yeah unfortunately that’s who my opponents Captained hedski I am leaning toward danger he had his quiet week last game hopefully his ready to bounce back with a 140! Too many options at this time of yaer too many chances to get it wrong haha

Sam_01

I think I’m just going to back in big Maxy Mav

Maverick_

Yeah going up against Marshall makes me nervous sam I’ll be passing on Gawn this week

TOPHAWK1

Typical isn't it Mav. You trade in Grundy VC him, and he drops one of his lowest scores of the season. Enough to drive you insane. I think I have had Grundy VC for every game after The Melbourne game and he has been unbelievable. This week I am going Macrae as C. Marshall and Gawn up against each other makes me nervous.

Maverick_

Yeah still take a 117 but I think rob will go 130+ against phillips. Coulda waited a week if that’s the case but ya just don’t know do you so much luck involved around supercoach with trades and injuries.

I am leaning toward danger or Fyfe tophawk my opponent has dunks

Blue

Danger as a POD. Everyone else I'm playing has Gawn

Maverick_

I like the danger pick I hope gawns not as safe as everyone thinks blue as he is most opponents C

John

Gawn or Fyfe for Captain? Leaning to Fyfe due to his previous games against the doggies. Other captaincy options include Macrae, Dunkley, Whitfield, Parker, Cripps, Danger or Lloyd. Any suggestions ?

TOPHAWK1

I am looking at going Macrae C after a rare Grundy VC miss. Macrae is due for a big game against Freo. Don't have Dunkley and Gawn and Marshall up against each other could negatively impact both their scores.

John

My gut is saying Fyfe, his record against the dogs great and his elbow doesn't seem to be too much of a worry. Macrae is also looking pretty good, his average at Marvel is 123.4 this year and that's pretty hard to go by. So will have to choose out of these two.

Blue

I have Gawn but I'm now thinking Danger.

TBone_9

Only have a couple of hours to make a decision. Only have enough money to make one of these trades. Hurn to Whitfield or Westhoff to T. Greene. Have Answerth as defense cover on bench. Cheers boys

Russty_

Answerth's going pretty well TBone , could end up with a nice score, might help make the decision for ya.

TBone_9

Yeah luckily I got to see Answerth score a beauty so will hold Hurn this week and burn 2 trades to get the guy I really wanted in this week. Westhoff and M. Parker out for Hill and C. Daniel. 2 trades left with 85k itb, BANG. Feeling happy about the decision. You doing any trades this weekend mate?

Russty_

I had to get rid of Andrews, well didn't really if i'd fielded Answerth instead of Duursma, but I got Smith in for Andrews…I thought you wanted Greene?

TBone_9

That’s still alright though mate! Smith got a 90+ score yeah? Actually luckily I haven’t made the trade yet, it’s loaded up on the screen but forgot to press Accept. It basically came down to who I trust to be consistent for the rest of finals. If I bring in Toby its only burning 1 trade but leaves me with no money itb. Daniel burns 2 trades but leaves me a consistent scorer with 85k. I still have 45 mins to reconsider haha

Russty_

From here mate, it's who can score you more week by week, cause unless you're top 4, any week could be your last, if I was choosing between an in form Toby and a rusty Daniel to score me more, I'd choose Toby.

TBone_9

That’s a great point mate, when you put it like that it makes a lot of sense. I think it might be Toby time then. Cheers Russty

Russty_

Hope it works out for ya mate.

BradleyTC99

Is trading Hurn the smart thing to do or hold? Got Logue as cover. Playing for both leagues and rank. Trading him would mean i'd only be left with 3 trades with one upgrade to go (would need to pain the fence if i keep Dylan Clarke or could just use the 1 by trading him).

If i traded him, id probably go Whitfield, but trades are so crucial. If i was sure it would be a week i'd hold, but hes getting long in the tooth and we dont know.

Nuggety

I did mate, in came Whitfield. I reckon it depends purely on how bad you wanna win this week..

Pranav

Putting the big C on Cripps looking the goods atm. Admittedly I put it on him due to Carlton bias but nice to see a strong start. Who’s everyone put the C on after Grundy sub 120 last night

Russty_

Probably be Gawn for me, should've put it on Answerth the way he's going so far…freakin yoyo

Pranav

Yeah I’m not watching the game but answerth seems to be killing it recently. Wish I traded logue out instead of answerth last week

Russty_

Take some solace in knowing that Cripps will probably deliver you a huge score this week Pranav

Pranav

Yeah can’t complain too much both logue and answerth were going just got the order wrong in terms of who to punt first and yeah cripps has played a blinder so far I’ve been lucky with my C recently

Pranav

I really like dogs mids at marvel one of bont macrae or Dunkley could go nuclear

Jamie

Trade Ziebell to Walters??
2 trades left.
4 uniques this week and need to win to make the 8.

Russty_

I know it's too late now but don't think you need to be doing sideways trades with only 2 left, hold and wait for your next injury.

Sam_01

Zorko the magnificent what a lovely POD you are

Russty_

Zorko the magnificent is almost as good as Luigi the unbelievable.

Holty01

Great win Blue Baggers

Russty_

Nice stuff from the Blues Holty, does Teague get the job or are they still looking for a big name big money Coach?

Holty01

I hope so. But who knows what the Carlton Board decides. They got rid of Ratten which was a huge mistake years ago.

Pranav

Would you want ratten back holly?

Pranav

Holty*

Holty01

Both right now would be good. They sacked Ratten when we were 1 kick away from a Prelim final. I’m actually surprised Ratten is even considering coming back to Carlton after how they treated him. But right now I think Teague deserves his chance.

Pranav

Yeah that west coast final was close and it wasn’t just that year many finals we lost in close circumstances, and considering how great a player he was for the club and the way we treated him im surprised he is even considering us but I’m sure if the saints are smart and they will lock him up as there coach. As much as I personally want ratten back I think Teague definitely deserves a chance

Russty_

Still all over the shop with his scoring Neil, wish I'd had at least the E on him this week though.

Jace

I'm happy as he is my cover for hurn this week.

hedski

I'm thinking about fielding Dylan Clarke against the Suns and benching Angus tonight, he's been shitting me Angus, no doubt it will burn me but ah well.
Glad I got rid of Logue over Answorth, he did good covering Hurn.

Russty_

Hi Mate, don't think Angus will be used as a tagger tonight…Steele will probably tag Oliver and hopefully he breaks it.
Angus could actually score ok against the Saints..just a thought.

hedski

Tipped the saints Russty, now I'm second guessing myself about An(g)us, ha ha.
I'll let the beer decide in 20 minutes.

Russty_

Hopefully you left him off mate, he seems crap regardless of his role!

hedski

🤔yep

KeenButClueless

Michael – coach of Goat FC in the A Graders league – don’t forget to put the E on Gawn.

Lekdog

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Holty01

Love it

Russty_

Good to see the Blues up and about..more hope for next year than my poxy Saints.

Maverick_

I hope the blues keep climbing that ladder and adelaide get sweet FA for McGovern haha

Pranav

We’ve won the Liam stocker cup 💪

Blue

Awesome!!!!

The Ranger

Who do I drop to get Answerths score…Heater or Blakely?

Russty_

Reckon I'd back Heater in ..more experience.

hedski

And playing his 300th?

Russty_

Fo sho…hedonist 🙂

TOPHAWK1

Thinking of giving Gawn a crack as captain tonight. Am tossing up between Macrae or Gawnie. Anyone else running with the bearded beast tonight?

TOPHAWK1

Gawn is the man isnt he. He will smash Marshall at Marvel Stadium.

Jon Doe

will he though? marshall will match him round the ground and even win his share of tapouts

hedski

Dunks for me Toppa cos U don't have him!!
(JR Mega League) 👍🍻

TOPHAWK1

Me trading out Duncs after round 4 this season was my major mistake for 2019. And the Martini Police are going to issue TH with a fine for the crime. LOL

Russty_

Don't forget Cripps mate 😉

hedski

I'll let you off with a caution this time but pull ya head in and wear a helmut from now on (just like Angus)

Jon Doe

can marshall stem the flow of points for gawn tonight can we trust the C on gawn? or better with macrae or fyfe

TOPHAWK1

Gawn 140 (280 C) and Marshall 110. Id take that. I have both these dudes. LOL

Jon Doe

marshall still very fresh last time they met in early rounds. alot more exposure to the AFL level now tophawk im scareed but i want gawn as captain lol

Maverick_

hard to go against the big fella, Jon.
You look at Gawns scores he has posted some BIG numbers are against great ruckman..
Brodie grundy for example he went 150+ against.

I expect tonights game to be close which means inflated scores for players like gawn who influence the game more than most
