2020 Hindsight: Round 7

Published by Fozdaddy on

Greetings, community! This weekend is so much better than the last few (so far). No major injuries to premiums, Monday night blockbuster coming up (lol), plenty to celebrate!

This will be updated after the Adelaide v St Kilda match tonight, but thought I’d share some content prior to the game. Spoiler: Adelaide all flopped again, Jack Steele played well, Max King kicked three (time of writing: 3:50pm AEST).

The Top

Adam Treloar (158) had his third consecutive 30+ disposal game, with 32 touches and six tackles. He went at 62% which is quite good for Adam. Brodie Grundy (144) went ham with 17 touches and 46 hit outs. He also had 5 free kicks for throughout the night. Taylor Adams (126) had his 7th game in a row with 100+ scores. He finished with 21 touches and a goal, while Patrick Dangerfield (127) was the only impressive premium for the Cats. He finished with 32 disposals, but went at 53% efficiency, which hindered his scoring.

Tim English (204) had a mammoth score against Phillips. He’s not a traditional ruckman in the sense that he accumulates massive hit out numbers (he had 16), but he moves around the ground like a wingman. He had 22 touches, seven marks and a goal to boost his score. Jack Macrae (122) is back, baby. He had 29 touches and is looking like a genuine midfielder and not a wingman now that Lachie Hunter (118) is back playing his role. He had 26 touches on the wing. Caleb Daniel (108) had 20 touches, with 14 kicks, off the half back. Conor McKenna (103) was the only centurion for the Bombers, collecting 19 touches.

After speculation about his spot in the side, Stephen Coniglio (141) was the Giants’ best player in the loss to Brisbane. He had 27 touches (15 contested) and 9 clearances. Dayne Zorko (116) had 18 touches and kicked a goal. 17 of his disposals were kicks, which was fantastic to see, while Jarryd Lyons (114) had 17 touches and a goal himself.

Luke Parker (141) flourished in a Kennedy-less Sydney side. He had 27 disposals, eight tackles, 13 contested possessions and seven clearances. Jake Lloyd (111) continues his great form with 24 touches at 87%, while Hugh Greenwood (144) had 23 touches and 12 tackles. He also had nine clearances, and 18 of his 23 touches were contested.

Shaun Higgins (182) put in a decent effort to be the second bloke to double ton up this weekend, but fell short. He had 36 touches, five marks, five tackles and four clearances (going at 86% efficiency) in the North loss. Dylan Grimes (127) had 19 touches at 100% efficiency, as well as nine marks.

The biggest match-up of the weekend came on Saturday, where it was Karen From Brighton (97km clocked) coming up against Dan “The Man” Andrews (238 confirmed wreckings). At her home ground of Brighton, Karen was able to move around, free from any tag. Unfortunately for her, as soon as she was away from home Andrews locked her down, de Boer style.

Tom Jonas (138) had 20 touches and 9 marks as Port beat the Blues after the siren. Charlie Dixon (118) could’ve had seven goals but missed four shots in an otherwise strong display. Sam Walsh (115) was Carlton’s only centurion, with two goals from his 16 touches.

Max Gawn (185) dominated the Hawks ever-changing ruck line-up. He had 27 hit outs to go with 22 disposals, as well as eight marks. Christian Petracca (160) had 29 disposals and a goal in his best game for the season, whilst also going at 79% efficiency. Clayton Oliver (121) had 29 touches and six tackles, while James Sicily (149) was the Hawks’ best with 24 touches (16 kicks) at 91% and eight marks as that rebounding interceptor.

Luke Ryan (125) is back in Perth and loves life. 19 touches (15 kicks), five marks and a disposal efficiency of 89% is what we want from him. He went through an inconsistent start of the season, but has found his groove with three consecutive tons. Andrew Brayshaw (102) continued his good form with Fyfe out, collecting 17 touches and laying seven tackles. Josh Kennedy (107) kicked 4.4 and could’ve had a bag in his 250th game. Tim Kelly (105) and Elliot Yeo (102) are two cheap premiums I would heavily look at, with a growing possibility they are at home for the rest of the season.

The Flop

Joel Selwood (6) lasted all of 6 minutes before hurting his hamstring. As of Thursday 12:21am it isn’t serious, but who knows? Jack Steven (67) had 16 disposals but only played 76% game time. He also had 4 free kicks against, which really hurts. John Noble (62) had 53 at halftime and was on track for an impressive mention in The Top, but to add just 9 points in a second half meant he hurt all his owners. 62 is still a good score, but he did nothing after half time.

Bailey Smith (77) had 20 touches but went at 55% efficiency, and will be a popular in this week when he bottoms out. Andy McGrath (67) had 24 disposals but only half were effective, while Devon Smith (71) is disappointing a lot of owners.

Lachie Neale (87) was effectively shut down by de Boer, restricted to just 20 disposals at 65%. Non-owners would be ecstatic. Josh Kelly (95) again refused to bring up a ton, which now is concerning owners. He had 21 touches, but only went at 65% efficiency. Nick Haynes (75) had a poor game by his standards, only collecting 12 touches and two marks.

Callum Mills (81) had 21 touches, but went at 71% and gave away 3 free kicks. It’s not an awful score, but after the heights of last week, he was expected to give more. Connor Budarick (42) is at the end of his useful SuperCoach life, only able to collect 8 touches.

Tom Lynch (30) had 4 touches and a goal, which is pretty trash when you’re paying him close to a mil a year. Jy Simpkin (57) was hurt in the opening bounce and spent 25 minutes off the ground. He ended with 14 touches at 57% efficiency, but only played 61% game time. Owners would be rapt with him not finishing in single digits.

Marc Pittonet (32) had 20 hit outs but only 1 of his three disposals were effective. He also gave away two free kicks. If you still have him, moving him on will make you about 170k. Pat Cripps (85) had 21 touches but four clangers, which hurt his scoring. Connor Rozee (34) had 8 touches at 50% and continues to disappoint owners.

Chad Wingard (74) had just 10 touches, but saved his score by converting two goals. Tom Mitchell (83) had 20 touches and four tackles, but only one clearance and four contested possessions.

David Mundy (38) had just 60% game time, but still managed 14 touches. Unfortunately, he went at 57% and 11 were handballs, so his scoring just wasn’t going to be very good. Andrew Gaff (90) had 24 touches and barely flopped, but the Eagles played pretty good football all around and for his price-point, I’d be disappointed with his run of form recently. 90 ain’t gonna cut it.


Isaac Quaynor (87) had just 11 touches, but went at 81% efficiency, and offered plenty of pressure in the back half for the Pies. Jordan De Goey (151) had his first game back since the sexual assault (indecent?) charges were laid, and he had Bruce McAvaney brushing off the allegations as a “hiccup” with his five goal performance. Not sure about that, Brucey. Sam Simpson (78) had 12 touches and a goal, but was looking very shaky early. You’d be happy with his score on field.

Darcy Parish (94) finally got some midfield minutes and had 22 touches for the Bombers. It was promising to see, however I think it’s due to Stringer and Shiel both missing. Pat Lipinski (90) is having a nice POD season, but not scoring enough to really be in contention as a keeper. He had 14 touches and a goal.

Aidan Corr (110) is having quite the season. He had 21 touches and gained 662 metres for the Giants, which was the highest for the game. Jeremy Cameron (105) kicked two goals, but missed three shots in what could’ve been a huge performance.

Izak Rankine (102) is officially my favourite footballer. Sorry Worpedo. He had 16 touches and two goals, including another potential goal of the year nomination with the first goal of the game. He’s an excitement machine whenever he gets near it. Plenty of Eddie Betts/Charlie Cameron about him. Get him in if you don’t have him. Noah Anderson (93) had 15 touches and a goal in probably his best game of his short career. Dane Rampe (120) kept Ben King pretty quiet whilst also rebounding from defence pretty well. He had 15 touches and four tackles, while Will Hayward (119) kicked two goals from his 12 touches.

Trent Dumont (139) had 25 touches and a goal, which is a good return. He performed well with Cunnington out and Simpkin injured for a large portion of the game. Curtis Taylor (76) had 18 disposals and six marks. He’ll continue making money for a few more weeks. Jake Aarts (53) had 8 touches and two goals, but had three behinds. His score could’ve been huge if he kicked straight. Derek Eggmolesse-Smith (119) had 23 disposals at 82% efficiency, and was one of Richmond’s best.

Dan Houston (107) had 15 touches and eight tackles in another consecutive ton for Port. He’s starting to hurt former owners who moved him on. Zak Butters (110) is putting together some nice games. He had 15 touches and kicked a goal in the win.

Jack Viney (120) had 19 touches and a goal. He also laid six tackles and had nine clearances. His role is still important at the Demons, people were quick to trade him after that 60 against Richmond where he had 6 clangers. Back to back 120’s will help faithful owners nicely. Harley Bennell (70) will continue to make money as long as he is playing, after 11 disposals and a goal.

Jackson Nelson (108) top scored for the Eagles with 23 touches and eight marks. Brennan Cox (105) had 16 touches in the back half for the Dockers.

First Dates

Cody Weightman (63) would be contending with Bailey Smith for best cult figure haircut at the club. He kicked two goals on debut from his 9 disposals, and seemed quite lively close to goal. Ned Cahill (35) also debuted for the Bombers, but he had just 7 disposals as wasn’t as good as Cody.

Dylan Stephens (44) played his second game but only had 11 touches in a quiet match, while buddy Chad Warner (29) was even quieter with 6.

Sam Mayes (115) debuted for Port Adelaide, and had a pretty good game. He had 17 touches, four marks and four tackles, whilst also going at 88% efficiency. He’s priced at $213,500 so could be an interesting option.

Will Day (62) played his second game and had 19 touches and eight marks, while Josh Morris (40) kicked his first goal in his second game. He missed a sitter earlier in the game, but made up for it. Darren Minchington (62) played his first game for Hawthorn after being rookie listed a few years ago, and didn’t do anything overly impressive. He may hold his spot, but him and Puopolo are fighting for that forward pocket defensive role.

Minairo Frederick (47) had 10 touches and a goal in his debut for Fremantle, and was exciting whenever he was close to the pill. He’s got serious leg speed, so hopefully he can get a couple more games.

Enjoy some Monday night football tonight community, see you round the traps!

TOPHAWK1 · 20/07/2020 at 16:17

Great write up Fozzy! One more game tonight. Let's hope our last players pump out tonnes to finish the round. Tom Doedee here's looking at you! 💪

    Russty_ · 20/07/2020 at 16:36

    Yeah mate go Tom…120 tonight please, 150 from Laird and 180 from Steele and I might win a few league games LOL

      TOPHAWK1 · 20/07/2020 at 17:57

      That's doable Russty! Sicily, Petracca, and Gawn did something similar in their match yesterday for me. 😜😅

        Russty_ · 20/07/2020 at 21:17

        If I was at this game I'd want my money back…freakin pair of spud teams haha

JohnDJ59 · 20/07/2020 at 16:24

Happy with my two ins this weekend of Greenwood and Brayshaw and my three Dees players, Gawn Petracca and Viney had huge games.

Russty_ · 20/07/2020 at 16:38

Cheers for the write up Fozzy, don't forget the part where the Saints win by 10 goals though haha, fingers crossed.

Bells · 20/07/2020 at 16:42

Thanks Fozz – excellent review of the round.
REALLY disappointed in Pittonet. I wanted him to hold down the spot for a few more weeks while I sorted other positions.
Still managing a decent 2300i despite a few like Tich, Neale and Simpkin spudding it up.
Rankine looks like a keeper already. Especially if you've been putting out fires all over the shop and burning trades.

Kangaz · 20/07/2020 at 16:47

Max King to ton up tonight. 👍

    Russty_ · 20/07/2020 at 21:21

    Maybe if he kicks 8 goals in the last quarter.

      Kangaz · 20/07/2020 at 22:42

      Lol only had faith because it was Adelaide. Oh well off to the bench he goes

        Derek · 20/07/2020 at 23:40

        After Starcrvich 51 and Aarts 53, I decided to put Hill and King on field, for a massive 49 and 55.

        At least the Budarick to Pickett loophole worked better

          JohnDJ59 · 21/07/2020 at 17:52

          That's very funny Derek, what are the chances you would end up getting the same score out of them.

Mikee · 20/07/2020 at 16:49

Thank you <img src="https://tinyurl.com/yxbbsslm&quot; width="1"/> <img src="https://tinyurl.com/wwct4y8&quot; width="1"/>

    Russty_ · 20/07/2020 at 21:20

    Thank you Mikee….thank you.

Pman · 20/07/2020 at 22:24

How did everyone end up scoring? I scored 2162 which was a vast improvement on last weeks disaster but I suspect a bit under par as plenty of 2200+ scores in my leagues. In the cash league I run we have a top score of 2511 this week and will be interesting to see where that ranks this week. Any other big scores noted?

    Ralph_7 · 20/07/2020 at 22:34

    2184 for me Pman, happy enough with it given I won my league matchup but I’m feeling a 2600+ score will be the highest this round

      Kangaz · 20/07/2020 at 22:39

      2112 here. Good week with no injuries or suspensions but bad made up for it

        Kangaz · 20/07/2020 at 22:40

        Bad scores*

    Sam_01 · 20/07/2020 at 22:41

    2350 odd for me this week

      Kangaz · 20/07/2020 at 22:43

      I have 604k in bank for upgrades this week 😉

        Pman · 20/07/2020 at 22:54

        Have $510K but a big chunk of that will be gobbled up by Max Gawn and hopefully enough let to change Heeney to Greenwood.

    Choppers · 20/07/2020 at 23:07

    2388 for me, after moving Pitto on and bringing Maxy in and making him Capt. was a big help for that score.

    Choppers · 20/07/2020 at 23:10

    And rankings are out.Moved up 24 spots to 18….

      Derek · 20/07/2020 at 23:30

      Awesome mate

        Choppers · 20/07/2020 at 23:39

        I'm flying into the unknown here…..hope the radar is a good one..

    Connor · 20/07/2020 at 23:20

    2,334 with Duncan on the pine

      Choppers · 20/07/2020 at 23:37

      Nice score especially with a premo on the bench

    Derek · 20/07/2020 at 23:30

    A solid Pitto effected 2288.

    Moved up a few places to 441 rank

    Shake n bake · 21/07/2020 at 08:40

    Shout out to my boy 2520.

    KSinny · 21/07/2020 at 09:34

    2429 for me, really came home strong with Steele and Doedee absolutely smashing it for me last night.

Derek · 20/07/2020 at 22:37

I only wanted 157 from Laird and King

I checked their scores at half time, 69 and 43.

What happened in the second half?

To make matters worse, Doedee must have scored 90 in the second half

Grabbed defeat from the jaws of victory in 4 leagues, loosing by less than 10pts in 4 leagues

    Pman · 20/07/2020 at 22:53

    That's gotta hurt Derek! Steele had an absolute blinder and will get the 3 Brownlow votes too along with 162 SC points with plenty of contested ball and tackles bumping up his score.

FearTheBeard · 21/07/2020 at 07:21

Greenwood & Doedeee this week in?


B Smith & Sicily?

    FearTheBeard · 21/07/2020 at 07:25


    Sicily & Greenwood and have to move Fyfe on this week (can hold another week with the other options)

    Joe_T · 21/07/2020 at 09:24

    That's really tough. If youre purely seeking maximum points then I'd say Greenwood and Sicily. But the most effective use of your money would be B. Smith and Doedee, might allow you to do another upgrade elsewhere.

    Also worth considering that Greenwood and Doedee should now be playing a lot of home games.

    Sam_01 · 21/07/2020 at 09:33

    Why not just go both smith and doedee, both are potentially undervalued. Sicily is about right at the moment, greenwood is probably a bit elevated but does look the goods

      Fearthebeard · 21/07/2020 at 11:11

      Who’s best break evens? If I sell fyfe next week those 4 would be my trades.

      I assume doedee and greenwood/sicily?

        Ralph_7 · 21/07/2020 at 12:16

        From lowest to highest their breakevens are:

        Doedee -> 28
        Sicily -> 28
        Smith (WBD) -> 47
        Greenwood -> 62

Corr Enthusiast :) · 21/07/2020 at 08:50

Looks like lachie neale has finally come to earth! What a terrible performance from the most overrated player in the league!!!!!
Neale and Rankine OUT
Aidan “The Goat” Corr and Baz “The too friendly with my sister for my liking” Smith IN

And if anyone sees motts tell him that he’s fat

    Ralph_7 · 21/07/2020 at 12:12

    You're an absolute lemon mate. Not to mention you've posted on the wrong site

s.c.tragic · 21/07/2020 at 09:57

What are your thoughts on tiger eggy-boy? Is he another Aarts , looking for divine inspiration here a few leaking holes to fill. eg Rozee Starcevich main culprits.

Sam_01 · 21/07/2020 at 10:09

Looking at my team and there is no way that i will complete a full team this year. I feel like i need to get rankine even though i missed initial jump as i went fyfe to treloar last week instead.
Bewley, Dsmith, simpson, pickett, noble, hill and rankine on field
Sitting at rank 1500 though so not tracking to badly

    redherringfc · 21/07/2020 at 17:39

    I’m picking him up this week. I stuffed up my trades last week and after bringing in Simpson I realised I needed a defender to avoid a doughnut.

    You’ll pay 70k more than everyone else did, but he’s more likely to go up by more than that compared to other rookies on the bubble this week.

    But, what do I know? I’m having a shocker of a year.

WithAllDueRespect · 21/07/2020 at 10:09

Hamill on ground due to Starcevich 51. Brodie Smith proving to be a nice POD hmm. 13 each of you WTF. 2060 going into last night with these two plus Doedee.

Nic Nat killing me in the ruck. Thoughts on English. Ave 105 prior to Friday night.

Jess · 21/07/2020 at 11:19

Simpkin good to go or injured?

KSinny · 21/07/2020 at 11:45

What's everyone thoughts on going Brander – Simpson via Budarick dpp and then King to Bailey Smith.

Fearthebeard · 21/07/2020 at 12:15

Does Fyfe have to go? Sounds like he’s out a while?

    JugHead · 21/07/2020 at 13:04

    Personally, I think he does.
    1. After getting re-injured, I expect them to be more cautious bringing him back.
    2. With a lot of games to be crammed into a short space of time, mids / on-ballers in particular will need their time on ground managed.
    That goes double for any players who already have niggles.
    3. Being a shortened season, benching a player for a couple of weeks or more is more costly to your scoring potential for the year.

TelescopicCox · 21/07/2020 at 12:42

I'm getting good value out of my mid-pricers this year which has pushed me up to 4.8K rank, after starting off the season in the 20K range.

I'll offload 1 mid-pricer in Bewley to Smith this week, and look at either Budarick to Parker or Fyfe to Treloar as my second trade

    MagicGnome97 · 21/07/2020 at 14:47

    Fyfe is out again probably.

Ralph_7 · 21/07/2020 at 12:56

At a bit of a loss as to what to do this week. I know I want Bazlenka in but not sure how to go about it. This is the team as it stands:

DEF – Haynes, Doc, Laird, Doedee, S.Hill, Williamson (McPherson, Gould)
MID – Fyfe, Steele, Kelly, Oliver, Cripps, Pickett, Serong, Bennell (Simpson, Rivers, Robertson)
RUC – Gawn, Grundy (Conroy)
FWD – Simpkin, Whitfield, Wingard, D.Smith, Bewley, Rankine (Brander, Budarick)

I've got $530k in the bank.

I'm thinking Budarick to Baz and Fyfe to someone but not sure who, obviously I want to save as much cash as possible but want the most points. I'm thinking Yeo ($487k left), Cogs ($485k left), Adams ($418k) or Treloar ($358k left) but honestly cannot split them.

If y'all have any ideas or opinions about what to do it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance 🙂

    Sam_01 · 21/07/2020 at 14:27

    I honestly think treloar is a lock, any player collecting 30+ touches is gold this year and he may be quite hard to get if you dont have him and spend all your coin, there has also been a select few players doing some serious heavy lifting in our sides and there are certain players you probably just need to have but i think this year we cant have them all unfortunately. I think the west coast boys are value however are playing pies this weekend.
    Personally im looking at Zorko. he carried me into the top 100 last year and even if he can average 105 its a win at 490k. Would seriously consider Luke Parker also

      Joe_T · 21/07/2020 at 17:53

      No concerns about Treloar's injury history and how that may play out during the condensed rounds?

      Ralph_7 · 21/07/2020 at 19:32

      Cheers Sam, I think you're right I just hate spending that amount of coin. I'm also looking at Parker as an option for next week.

    derek · 21/07/2020 at 14:29

    Adams will probably be effected when Sidebottom comes back. Cogs could find himself on the forward line again.

    Yeo this week and Trelor next week

    MagicGnome97 · 21/07/2020 at 14:46

    I think H.Greenwood and Petracca both have very low breakevens like Bailey Smith this week, and could average 10 or so higher. Bailey Smith's average if you take out the concussion game is around 103.5 I believe. Those two are averaging in the 110s. If you're chasing points and can afford to you can maybe get Bailey Smith next week and one of these guys instead.

    Out of those four players you mentioned I would definitely get Treloar. Proven scorer.

      Ralph_7 · 21/07/2020 at 19:38

      Very true they could average more but I'm definitely jumping on Baz this week because he is probably at the cheapest he will be. Greenwood and Petracca might be luxury trade ins for Smith or Bewley

    Russty_ · 21/07/2020 at 22:40

    Yo Ralph, I'd actually get rid of Hill for Hurn, Rampe or Andrews this week and Brander or one of your other fwd line spuds for Bazlenka.
    Hill's already leaving a bad taste in my mouth for picking him, he's an experienced player and he's delivering sheisters.
    Fyfe is listed on afl injury page as only 1 week now. Simpson could cover.

      Ralph_7 · 21/07/2020 at 23:13

      Cheers Russty, I had initially been trading Hill instead of Budarick and quite possibly went a bit early on the trade Fyfe call (had checked the injury page this morning and it hadn’t been updated) but I’m just conscious of the 20 day bonanza and having warm bodies. Sam said above about Zorko which has piqued my interest so maybe Hill and Brander out, Bazlenka and Zorko in with $110k remaining is a goer. Quite the conundrum but I guess that’s why we play the game. Thanks again for your comment 🙂

derek · 21/07/2020 at 13:00

The average Team value for the top 10 ranked teams is $12.22m. this doesn't include their cash in the bank.

the average team value for the teams ranked 400 to 410 is $11.71m

teams ranked between 4990 and 5000 is $11.49m

    Sam_01 · 21/07/2020 at 14:18

    Interesting, to put in perspective im ranked 1500 on the dot and my team is worth $11.71m with 236k in the bank. So it would be pretty congested around the top end i would of thought 14,910 total score

    JohnDJ59 · 21/07/2020 at 14:40

    My team value is now 11,914,800 it hasn't changed a lot in the last four rounds. My rank has dived in the last two weeks from 5,151 to 15,860.

      derek · 21/07/2020 at 14:56

      thats good value. probably had a few poor weeks because of injury i'm guessing.

        JohnDJ59 · 21/07/2020 at 17:35

        Injury and spud rookies on field. Plus some of my so called premos under performing. I see we are up against each other in the Up There Cazaly league this weekend, 4 v 6 that should be an easy win for you Derek.

    redherringfc · 21/07/2020 at 17:29

    It’s a small sample size (of 1) but top 23% is worth 11.2 million with 600k in the bank.

    Value is probably falling as well, since I’m paying top $ for Gawn this week.

simon · 21/07/2020 at 14:27

Should i trade in
Opt A – treloar and c dixon or
Opt B – greenwood and petracca

    MagicGnome97 · 21/07/2020 at 17:29


    Pman · 21/07/2020 at 20:06

    Definitely B, I wouldn't be considering a full forward unless it's a fit and firing Buddy from about 4 years ago…

    Russty_ · 21/07/2020 at 21:54

    My dream is to get Greenwood and Petracca in this week for Shittonet and Rozee Pozee but the problem is I don't have Gawn..grrr I hate this game lol

      Pman · 21/07/2020 at 23:14

      I'm going to break the bank to get Max in as he's not going to get any cheaper with a break even of 124 and he's costing me too many league wins not having him. My dilemma is do I bring him in with Greenwood which leaves only $47K left or do I get Smith instead leaving me $196K? Bigger points hit or enough cash to paint the fence next week?

        Russty_ · 21/07/2020 at 23:21

        I think get Baz in now and wait on Greenwood..surely he has to have a few bad games at some point

          Tibor · 22/07/2020 at 16:12

          Hey Rusty long time no speak, Didn’t I convince you on Petracca right from the start?

MagicGnome97 · 21/07/2020 at 14:38

2033 for me this week. Dropped in rank from 5,500th to 11,700th. But with 940k in the bank I can make some big upgrades.

Pittonet > Gawn

M.King > H.Greenwood

Leaves me 295k spare to try and get Treloar and Petracca over the next few weeks. Also Bailey Smith. I could get him in this week but Greenwood's breakeven is almost as low, and I think he'll score higher so I can maybe get Bailey Smith next week. I'm chasing points now!

Fearthebeard · 21/07/2020 at 14:59

Can’t decide but can afford any two out of treaolor sicily b Smith doedee and greenwood. Thoughts anyone?

    Jess · 21/07/2020 at 18:35

    Treloar overpriced but a good shot at top few mids. Sicily looking good but still up and down. Greenwood looking the most secure of all. Have had Doedee from round 2 but still aren't expecting the world. Greenwood up fwd for me

    MagicGnome97 · 21/07/2020 at 21:32

    Treloar and Greenwood

cash_cows · 21/07/2020 at 17:16

I think regardless of rookie breakevens i'm still going with these this week.
King + Starcevich -> B.Smith + Whitfield.

Pls fyfe play.

    Jess · 21/07/2020 at 18:33

    Im doing same outs with b smith and lloyd in. Great trades. Whitfield will lift

Tbag86 · 21/07/2020 at 17:18

What is everyone’s thoughts –
Trade in: Sam Simpson or Sam Mayes?

Will probably be filling an onfield hole at M8 at least for a couple of weeks..

    Russty_ · 21/07/2020 at 22:18

    This week could help you decide, Duncan should be back, see if Simpson keeps his spot, and also Narkle due back in 1 to 2 weeks which means he could lose it then if not this week, not sure on Mayes, good game from him though.

The Ranger · 21/07/2020 at 17:55

Just did the math…if I'd held English and not traded him out I'd be 109th instead of 1121st and also have two more trades up my sleeve.
Hate that.
Moving on…do I double down this week to try and get Gawn next week or paint the fence, get Bailey Smith this week and just forget Gawn for another few weeks? Bank is pretty much zero.

    NDD · 21/07/2020 at 19:26

    Gawn is a must Ranger unless you target English again Great effort too mate

    NDD · 21/07/2020 at 20:32

    pick english again

      Russty_ · 21/07/2020 at 22:35

      You should trade Gawn out for English if he's so good Neil 😉

Jess · 21/07/2020 at 18:47

Ranked top 300 overall. Best to get king and starchevich out and off the field i reckon. King to B smith and Starchevich to Lloyd. Leaves me with two of Simpson, Pickett or Bennell on field in the mids, who would have to score better than fwd and def rookies. My whole premium/rookie structure has been heavily influenced by what rookies are playing well.

Rookies on field left to upgrade – Simpson, Pickett, Aarts (aarts a problem i know)

Other players to possibly lose at a later stage – Rankine, D Smith, Doedee

Next move is to wait for Fyfe to drop and snap him up when good. Other than that I'm waiting for my second wave of rookies to fatten

Jess · 21/07/2020 at 19:14

Can someone please explain the new fixture/byes to me? Are all teams having a bye eventually?

    Derek · 21/07/2020 at 21:08

    All teams will eventually have a bye except for Essendon and Melbourne.

    4 teams in round 9 (WCE, Freo, Hawks & Carlton)
    2 Teams in round 10 (GWS & Swans)

    The other 10 teams get their bye between round 13 to 16. Meaning at least 1 round will have 4 teams with byes, and probably 2 teams have a bye in the other 3 rounds.

      Derek · 21/07/2020 at 21:15

      It will surely be best 18 in the rounds with 4 teams having a bye.

      However, rounds with only 2 teams having a bye I doubt it will be best 18. Similar to the round after the China game it was always best 22.

      Derek · 21/07/2020 at 22:04

      Bye rounds are 10 & 11 (not 9 & 10)

        Russty_ · 21/07/2020 at 22:33

        More bloody byes to deal with, now I really can't wait for next season !!

Rocksta · 21/07/2020 at 20:47

Ok, I’ve gotta ask………..how does Ben McKay ( North Melb Rookie) score 86 SC with 5 disposals and no scores?

Also, I can’t seem to login to my intensedebate account anymore. Anybody know why?

    Russty_ · 21/07/2020 at 21:53

    Don't know why you can't log in Rocksta but I know it's happened to quite a few in here, Neil ndd , Holty and others they had to start a new intense debate account I think.

      Rocksta · 21/07/2020 at 21:59

      Cheers Russty. Yea, trying to form new account now. May need to change username somewhat I guess.

        Russty_ · 21/07/2020 at 22:13

        Maybe just try it with a hyphen or a dot mate

          Rocksta · 21/07/2020 at 22:15

          Just set up new account. Still won’t activate on this site. Will just have to go manual each time I’m afraid.

            Russty_ · 21/07/2020 at 22:22

            Weird Rocksta, maybe contact Lek about it, I don't have his email but someone here will have.
            I see what ya mean about Mckay!…that is unbelieveable that he scored 86 from not doing very much at all, his gametime was 100% but his d/e was 60%..maybe he had a ton of score assists?..either that or someone in CD owed him a favour.

    Joe_T · 21/07/2020 at 22:23

    I was wondering the exact same thing about McKay but he had 15 one percenters and some other "invisible" stats that CD love

      Russty_ · 21/07/2020 at 22:31

      How many points is a one percenter worth Joe?

    Ralph_7 · 21/07/2020 at 23:14

    Someone on one of the Facebook pages said he had an usually high amount of spoils (15 iirc) which inflated his score, as per the scoring 1 spoil is worth 2 points so there’s 30 points accounted for plus the magical “impact” scoring I reckon it’d almost enough to get him the 80 odd

      Russty_ · 22/07/2020 at 23:43

      That explains why Andrews from Brisbane sometimes scores well, he spoils supreme

Jack · 21/07/2020 at 21:19

Hey guys need a bit of advice…

1. Who should i trade from Devon Smith (BE 89) and Darcy Fort (BE 80) for Bailey Smith?
2. Is it still worth getting rankine into my side for either king or taylor, who would u trade out of the two? I was unable to get him in last week as if I didn't make some trades in other positions i would have copped a donut, or is it better to bank in more cash by downgrading a starcevich or brander to a def rookie like Mckay?

    Russty_ · 21/07/2020 at 21:50

    I think Fort before Smith although Smith isn't scoring well, we know he can, Stanley's gonna be back soon too, might mean Fort goes out?
    I definitely think it's still worth getting Rankine in, maybe early call but he looks to be the quality of Rookie similar to Rowell, top notch. I'd trade the one out who leaves you with the most money left over.
    Mckay only came in for Zurhaar, not sure if he retains his spot.

      Jack · 21/07/2020 at 22:22

      Yeah thanks for that. Also given essendon dont have a bye it may be better to keep in. Decided to trade taylor ahead of king just cause he has a higher BE than king and king has better JS. Fingers crossed teams on thursday dont throw any other curveballs

Gibbs · 21/07/2020 at 21:24

POD Watch- What are peoples thoughts on Dane Rampe? Poor start to this year but has scored 90 and 120 last 2 weeks. Averaged 98 last year, 85 at the moment and in very very few teams.

Am I crazy to consider him at just 420 k, or could he be good value?

    Russty_ · 21/07/2020 at 21:47

    Do you already have Hurn Gibbs?..he's pretty good value right now.

      Jess · 22/07/2020 at 13:52

      Rampe bog chance of scoring 50 odd

plugga · 21/07/2020 at 22:41

Heeney and florent for treloar and parker is what i am thinking. Any thought

    Russty_ · 21/07/2020 at 22:44

    Oh you have Florent?…I have him in my draft side and am now regretting it a bit, ballsy call there mate, would you be blowing all your cash if you did that?
    Maybe Heeney to Treloar and Florent to Bazlenka or someone good but cheap, and proven scorer.

      plugga · 21/07/2020 at 23:51

      Cash flow not an issue atm. Was thinking parker or petracca

        Russty_ · 22/07/2020 at 23:42

        Petracca plugga, he's looking like a must have this year…who would've thought that with all the years of almost. 🙂

    Pman · 21/07/2020 at 23:40

    Good trades, I brought in Parker 3 weeks ago and whilst I don't have Treloar I would like to. His kicking efficieny has improved, his getting 30+ possessions in shortened games, is finding the goals and is a good POD. He's on my wishlist.

Kev · 22/07/2020 at 09:53

Not sure what to do this week to be honest, team as it stands is:

DEF: Haynes, Docherty, Laird, Short, Hill, Hamill (Rivers, Williams)
MID: Neale, Danger, Steele, Cripps, Gaff, Coniglio, Anderson, Bennell (Hibberd, Green, Mahony)
RUC: Gawn, Grundy (Comben)
FWD: Petracca, Martin, Wingard, Smith, Taylor, Rankine (Brander, King)

103k in the bank, would like to bring in Bailey Smith, but not sure for who. Would also like to patch up that defense a little especially with Hamill's poor scores and Rivers/Williams not playing.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated ! Thanks in advance 🙂

    Russty_ · 22/07/2020 at 23:41

    Hi Kev, thought I'd respond cause no one else did….I like your side, it's so much better than mine haha
    If I were you I'd consider a double downgrade this week to build your bank account, then you could go bang and bang next week in the fwd and backlines if you so desired.

      Kev · 23/07/2020 at 09:42

      Thanks for the response! I've done a bit of tinkering and I've come to the conclusion that a double downgrade might be the best alternative as well. Ended up doing Rivers to McPherson and Brander to Simpson (via Mahony), banks the extra cash for the upcoming weeks

Len · 22/07/2020 at 16:34

I beat the other team 2106-1980 but the final score says he beat me 2124-2106. How could this happen when I trippled checked both scores including the final scores after the emergencies scores included??

    Colin · 22/07/2020 at 21:10

    Sounds pretty close to Grundy's score. If he had the VC on Grundy and the non playing captain was from Freo or West Coast, another 144 gets added. Just my thoughts, seems to add up.

      Len · 23/07/2020 at 13:54

      yeah he VC grundy and made the loophole and emergency…thanks

    Russty_ · 22/07/2020 at 23:37

    Are you new to Supercoach Len?…guys deliberately set their teams up to give you a nasty surprise on Sunday night, you need to work out how their score will work out. Personally I couldn't be bothered with all that crap, I might do one or two loopholes but some guys loophole everything they can just for the sake of it.

      Len · 23/07/2020 at 13:54

      thanks, thats exactly what happened
