Festival of Fantasy | Day 15

Published by Lekdog on

G’day community,

Tonight’s game has a fair bit of Supercoach relevancy but the big one for me is the rumours that Brodie Grundy will be a late out.

Luckily it’s a best 18 round but I’m still scared shitless.

Adelaide v Collingwood

BREAKEVENS

The Snoop Dogg’s

Brad Crouch 164 (INJ)

Reilly O’Brien 158

Adam Treloar 146 (INJ)

Tom Doedee 137

Will Hamill 105 (INJ)

The Lil Jon’s

Darcy Cameron -13

Harry Schoenberg -10

Andrew McPherson -1

Lachlan Sholl 0

Trey Ruscoe 6

John Noble 25

CAPTAINS

TOP VC/C Options:

Brodie Grundy
If he plays, he averages 109 against the Crows and has posted scores of 123, 141 and 103 in their last three clashes.

Rory Laird
A real yolo move, but he is playing in the guts and is coming off scores of 97, 93 and 120.

Taylor Adams
A slightly less yolo move, Adams has only dipped below 103 twice this year, both in the Fremantle and West Coast games. If you think the Pies will win, he’s a sneaky option.

NEW FACES

Max Lynch
He is named as an emergency but if the Pies decide to rest Grundy, he should come in.

Zak butters anyone? The forward line is a mess this year so having a look at POD options. Issue is obviously deviation with 3 scores sub 65, but 5 big tons at 418k is very enticing. No bye is an issue but comparing him to Chad whos a similar price with the bye i honestly like him more, although chad's role is probably a little clearer. Just havent seen enough from the likes of simpkin to make him an automatic lock at that price.

Thoughts guys?

Russty_

He's having pretty good second year ay Tommy?…better than Duursma and Rozee, I have him in my draft side and am very happy with his scoring.

JohnDJ59

I don't like Simpkin and I'm not sure why people keep talking about him.

JugHead

For a similar price, less than 4% ownership, and already had his bye, I'd prefer JJK.

JohnDJ59

Max injured, Grundy maybe managed as well as Draper, my whole ruck line, glad it's best 18.

TBone_23

Is the rumour Draper to be managed as well DJ? I wouldn’t hate that, if they both miss it affects EVERYONE and they will be nice and fresh going forward

JohnDJ59

That is the rumour, along with Ridley.

Russty_

What's this about Grundy John…was that in an article somewhere?

Shake_n_bake

With Reid out and Cameron in l cant see Grundy rested. I haven’t heard anything.

JohnDJ59

It was a rumour, started by Adrian Johnson, that Grundy was going to be managed, now they are saying he could be a late out since he has been picked.

Thomas

Does Butler have to go this week?

Demons Delight

Not on his last game prior to this He was brilliant but not on my radar

redherringfc

He drops too much in value is my guess. He still scores well against weaker sides. Hopefully he can post a couple of decent scores so he goes up again and then offload as a late upgrade.

JohnDJ59

Only going to drop about 10k this round. I would be either upgrading him to a fwd premo you don't have, or keep him as a F6 that you can loophole with a rookie.

Russty_

I think Ideally Thomas, all our forwards should either be Fwd/mids or Fwd/def players, not just Key fwds and certainly not just small forwards!…they can be wildly fluctuating mother flokkas in their scores, be alright for awhile and then start scoring peanut brittles when they don't touch the ball or score bugger all goals.

Choppers

I need a MID rookie for next round…..probably Bytel or O'Halloran .

Does anyone have a preference either way?

Cheers

JohnDJ59

I'll be getting in Wicks and Bytel if named.

Choppers

Hadn't considered Wicks but I'll check him out.

Thanks for the reply. Cheers

Russty_

Both those guys looked good choppers, Wicks also.

Choppers

With Wicks, it might come down to which boots he's wearing. Just joking there.

But hadn't thought of him tbh. And both he and O'Halloran have had the bye. I'll check it out. Thanks for the info.

Choppers

And Flanders F/M named for The Suns. Another one to look at.

ST1974

Who should I put on the field tonight out of Shoenberg or Ruscoe. Leaning towards Schoenberg as he scored higher in his first game and will be playing in the midfield and likely to score more compared to Ruscoe who I am not sure where he will line up tonight given the Pies injury list.

Thoughts?

JohnDJ59

I have Schoenberg on field and Ruscoe on the bench.

ST1974

Thanks John. I think I will do the same. Appreciate your advice.

JohnDJ59

It looks like that is the general opinion, but with rookies who knows how they will go, we can only go on past games as a guide and one game really isn't enough to make a formed decision, so it really comes down to best guess.

cash_cows

likewise, fielding schoenberg over ruscoe.

TommyC99

I think it’s pretty tough. Being a fwd against the crows seems pretty enticing atm, and if he can convert he’s gonna score higher. In saying that, Schoenberg role is probably a bit clearer and generally more SuperCoach friendly, so I’d pick him to play it safe

hedski

Just read that rounds 14-17 will be likely bye rounds for the ten teams who haven't had them and round 18 (SC granny?) Will be full 18 teams.

Demons Delight

Time to complete my team with non byers

The Ranger

I'm thinking that getting a really good 18 is more important than finishing ya team.
I'm not gonna bother with a D6 or F6,

Russty_

Isn't round 17 SC Final Hed?…14, 15, 16, 17 , 4 rounds of finals before actual AFL Finals start

Joe_T

From what I've been reading, it doesn't look like rd 18 will be counted for SC. Seems more likely that they'll stick to the original rd 13-17 plan and just have top 18 throughout the SC finals.

The other option i could see is rd 17 being a non-playing rd for SC, with the granny being in rd 18 so we can have a normal SC best 22 then.

hedski

I only read the AFL article, so I'm just guessing at what they're doing, thanks for the heads up Joe, haven't looked into to it yet πŸ‘

Joe_T

No worries hedski, i'm sure the SC admins still haven't decided yet so it's all just guess work! The less changes the better for SC though so it seems logical to avoid changing things if it isn't needed.

Dingus

Hi all, quik Q who should i put on field between noble and mcpherson? Ive got the coin out already and it came up noble

JohnDJ59

I have both on field, but if I had to chose, I would go Noble.

Dingus

ye cheers john i'll stick with it, no matter which way i go it'll be the wrong choice πŸ˜›

JohnDJ59

I picked Noble over McPherson mainly because Noble has played 8 compared to 4 by McPherson, so we have more information on his scoring potential.

Dingus

Good call, my only thought was the cows are going to be under the pump tonight so Mcpherson might get to see alot of the footy, still going with noble tho.
Good luck m8

JohnDJ59

It was a close call in the end, but I'm glad it worked out, I was a bit worried at half time.

Dingus

Yes indeed, still a good call John, i'll take it! Thanks again

Help

Trying to free up cash for next week. Do I go Noble for Sholl or Ruscoe or do I not bother with either?

Keenbutclueless

Grundy playing. Collingwood confirmed no late changes

Dingus

phew, good news!

Russty_

Noice!

JohnDJ59

Grundy is in, no late change.

Demons Delight

we all had him so no difference really. Ridley is different though

JohnDJ59

Yes if Ridley is out that will hurt.

Pman

Thought I was being clever last week by bringing Draper in as R3, especially when I saw Max Gawn was being rested and now Essendon rest him!! WTF!! Wasted trade which sums up my season….

JugHead

The way the teams drop it is hard to avoid. I brought Tobe Watson in on monday night to raise cash and get Goldy at the last minute.
40 minutes later, Freo's team is announced and Watson is dropped. Luck is playing a big part in team selection this year.
Its kind of like every team is having two byes. One in the fixture, and another one for players who have to be managed because of the condensed schedule.

Russty_

That's precisely why I don't think this year really counts Jugs…too many variables, too many byes, too many unknowns.
We're lucky to have any Footy at all so they're just doing the best they can, but it ain't the regular stuff when it comes to Supercoach…it's just an improvised competition to run with what's currently happening in the world, which is complete mayhem. You can't plan for byes when there's hardly any notice lol…I am having a shit year but am taking it with a grain of salt and just feeling grateful there was a supercoach season this year, the results don't matter to me., but it's been a good practice run, and at least we got to see some players develop and become SC relevant.

Demons Delight

love to see the JR preaseason again luck played a big part in that but like this season at least it is something eh

JohnDJ59

I'm actually starting to enjoy it Russty, having the trades to cover for injuries helps, but there is still a bit of planning involved, like not getting in rookies until they are named, one of the reasons I couldn't trade out Starcevich this round was because the rookie I wanted to get in hadn't been named yet, as it turned out I still got him in but traded out a different player. Most of my team is running on empty, but I'm very happy with my young guns Oliver, Brayshaw and Petracca. Dusty is being Dusty, Neale and Max are simply the best. I won't get to full premo, so what's new, I never really do. Thinking we can get away with one rookie on field in the defence, mids and fwd lines and loop with the one on the bench. Looks like you might have me covered again Russty. Cheers.

Russty_

Oh right John maybe just because of the Draper thing though, that's just unlucky mate..I guess this year with everything that's happened, it's not my favourite time. I've had to sell my business, and houses, I'm moving soon…lots of turmoil going on, this just takes a back seat unfortunately, although that's not my preference.
I like to put Supercoach first, and life second LOL

JohnDJ59

Yes I saw that in another post Russty, you had to sell two houses and a business that had been going 20 plus years, that would put a damper on anyone and I know how stressful moving house can be. I think you are doing well even playing it this season, I wasn't really into it at the start, having a injured player every week didn't help, but the last three weeks I've been getting into it a bit more. I saw a post where you weren't happy with me because I hadn't been getting involved as much as I usually do, it was the Saturday night when hardly anyone was posting, I did reply to that and have been trying to get on more since then.

Russty_

Well I'm glad you did see that John cause you're a stalwart of the site, and very well liked here, many people respect you and your advice, me one of them.
You're one of the guys I like to see doing well, it's actually hard to get the motivation to post if you're having a crap year…I don't actually feel qualified to give advice to anyone this year, (having such a crap year) but also, I don't feel like this is a normal year.
I'm actually the most posting mofo in the history of the site I think and I am hardly qualified to be advising anyone but sometimes I think, if you enjoy coming to the site, just post something, there are so many good guys and girls here…but the real tragedy is when members leave here forever.
I think Pie-man left a few years ago and he was a legend, hopefully Pman is the one and the same , not sure if he is but hope so, and that he's come back to stay, cause he was a good dude, but experienced some attacks from some negative asshats.

JohnDJ59

Yes I'm glad those guys aren't around anymore, I tried to ignore them, you had a few run ins with them sticking up for people and I had to ask Patch on twitter to take the ban off you. I'm rapt that you consider me a stalwart of the site, I guess I'm one of the regulars and I try to help out when I can.

Russty_

Well you are a favourite here John, and are much appreciated for always giving up your time to give advice which is usually wise and sensible..most people couldn't be bothered..you don't get involved in the drama.
I'm sure the ones who bring up drama here, are the same ones from the past, still trying to bring down the site..with some kind of petty revenge thing or jealousy whatever…it won't work.
Anyways, keep up the good work John, this place is better with you here.

Derek

It would be worse if it was best 22

MagicGnome97

yeah if i didnt trade in draper then i'd have gotten cameron's score this week. sitting there on my forward bench he is.

Billioux

Anyone know why Adel. and Collingwood players already locked ?

Billioux

Oh game started. Good thanks! i thought was 7.10pm AEST start.

JohnDJ59

The way Grundy is going, they might as well have rested him.

Demons Delight

and Laird is rewarding those that stuck with him

JohnDJ59

Never thought about trading him out.

Derek

Seems he likes the midfield

Very happy

Keenbutclueless

After your Hawthorn players let you down last night, Laird is more than making up for them.

Jess

Traded out laird two weeks ago when he was averaging 91. Thought a downgrade to stewart and some extra cash was a good decision. I should be shot

Jess

Its times like these you need to step back and have a rest from SC, or else you just end up angry..

Connor

Yep! Felt the same all year having traded Brayshaw to Smith after round 1 (Fyfe getting injured made sure I got that one wrong)

JohnDJ59

That sounds more like a sideways trade, surely you had bigger problems to deal with.

JohnDJ59

Looks like I will be upgrading Noble to Lloyd next week.

hedski

Wish I had your cash John

JohnDJ59

After I do two downgrades first.

JohnDJ59

After his 89, Noble should still have cash to make and he's scoring alright, I might look at my fwd line instead.

Demons Delight

who is tay tay?

Pman

Taylor Adams

Demons Delight

ta

AuroraBorealis?!

I have a very bad feeling about this last QTR for us. It would be such a collingwood thing to give last place their first win for the year

TOPHAWK1

Rory Laird loves playing in the guts! Double tonne brewing tonight.

AuroraBorealis?!

Also i can't believe i traded Doedee out for Hurn, too late to take that back now if i want full premo though.

TOPHAWK1

Doedee to Laird next week. Straight switch. Doedee done. Hammy twinged again.

AuroraBorealis?!

I rescind my prior statement

Shake_n_bake

Would need about 100k aswell Hawk Doedee will be about 410k Laird 510k

TOPHAWK1

I have the cash. No problem Shake.

Shake_n_bake

Every team I’m playing this week Hawk except 1 have Laird πŸ™

Russty_

Is Doedee gone for weeks?…major or minor twang?

TommyC99

Wasnt one of those obvious ones where we watch it go russty. Broacast just showed him icing it up start of the last. And its the same one he missed a week for recently, so im expecting at least a few. So straight swap to Zac williams for me!

Russty_

Thanks Tommy…yeah another bloody forced trade, this year is kinda like being in combat in a war, your next move could be your last.

The Ranger

Does Laird stay in the guts when B.Crouch comes back?

TelescopicCox

I'll look at Doedee to Williams purely for value and that fact he's had his bye.

I can't complain about injuries when I keep bringing in players with injury history but Howe (started with), Doedee, Fyfe, Dunkley, Treloar along with 1 weekers to Gawn & Kelly, has been a brutal run

Holty01

What happened to Doedee?

AuroraBorealis?!

Pinged a hammy Holty, 3rd qtr from memory

Shake_n_bake

9 mins left in the last

cash_cows

Doedee to lloyd a waste of money?

Might need more bois in the engine room still running D.Smith and 2 rookies.
Depending of $ movement, Mitchell and Adams in would be huge.

JohnDJ59

Going Doedee to Lloyd is the sensible move to make

Demons Delight

Yes John Our plans go sour with injuries but LLOYD is the premier defender and has had his bye Great move but expensive

Russty_

Gonna be a great score for you this week Neil..well done mate!

Demons Delight

Lucky again I guess Always had faith in Cameron ever since preseason Doedee was always an injury risk but bowed out big thank Lord it was late in the game and Laird has been there since dot Just paying back a bit , much better in the mids

Russty_

Credit where it's due Neil, should bump you up the rankings this week a fair bit..and will be right up there for the weekly score I suspect. Laird was a real bonus after hanging on to his 90 averaging ass for the whole year.

Demons Delight

It's a weird season Russty .Last week i did ok with 2217 if Ridley doesn't play guess my score 2217 Of cause I hope Ridley plays and scores a double ton but happy enough NDD

Derek

Best 18 does My head in trying to calculate what my final score (and opponent) will be

JohnDJ59

Should be fun for the finals.

Russty_

Just count up what you've already scored, from how many players, if it's 22 obviously deduct the 4 lowest, if it's more players to come guesstimate if any of those will score in the lowest 4 bracket and if not, how close to the prediction they'll be.
Looks like you've got 21 playing, are already on 2104 with 18 played and 3 to come..so after your 3 more to come play, deduct the lowest 3 and that's your score…you can't really calculate it in advance because it hasn't happened yet, but it will be a good score for sure.

JohnDJ59

What Russty said. Take the lowest scores out of your total, till you have 18 left.

Demons Delight

Nicks just confirmed Doedee has hamstring tightness and could miss less than expected The problem is if he misses 2 games would you keep him probably not

Russty_

Derek's 3 lowest scores at the moment are Pickett 58, Wingard 53 and Aarts 59, so his 3 remaining players …
Lukosius, Rankine and Devon Smith could all easily exceed those scores, which means to me Derek, you could possibly score 2150 or more from your 18 this week…maybe even 2200 plus.

Demons Delight

Those 3 have tonned up already before so that would give Derek plus 130 which would be 2234 a great score but i would say 80's would be a good result for those 3 .Naturally derek wants double tons Good luck Derek

Derek

Thanks fellas. It looks like the estimate On the ‘gameday’ takes all thaT into account. If the estimate of the resining player is greater than the lowest counting play, it substitutes the estimate. So if Lukosious is estimated to get 87 and My lowest counting player has already scored 47, the estimate will add the 40 pt difference.

We have 2 normals weeks now

derek

the projected score at the top of the 'my team' page is not correct

TBone_23

Of course it seems like everyone and their dog has Laird the week he almost double tons haha. Do we think it’s better to get to full premo as quickly as I can with super undervalued players (480k or less), or upgrade according to best possible I can afford on each line and take an extra couple of weeks of cash gen to get there?

JohnDJ59

Hi TBone, I'm going to be upgrading to the best I can afford. However I don't expect to get to full premo, thinking I can get away with a rookie at D6, M8, F6 as well as a good rookie on the bench I can loop them with.

Keenbutclueless

Will be an interesting comparison. I have been shopping in the bargain bin. I will bring in Williams and Greene in the next 2 rounds. I will have no rookies in field. But I will be missing Petracca, Neale and Lloyd. So definitely not premium. I understand the Uber premo principle when it’s best 18, so be interesting to see how my depth goes against a team that’s not full premo, but is well stacked with Ubers.

My D6 is Weller, M8 is Cripps, F6 is D Smith.

Good luck with the rest of the season John. Hope we get to meet in a few league finals.

JohnDJ59

Hi Keen, yes it will be interesting, I'm not sure it will make a lot of difference in the end, thinking that the two will cancel out each other, Uber premos and some rookies v premos and mid priced players. I'll have all four, so I've gone my own way to some extent. My best players have been two Ubers in Neale and Gawn, two premos in Oliver and Grundy and two mid priced players, who are now a Uber and a premo in Petracca and Brayshaw. The rest have been up and down or getting injured. I hope to add Lloyd to the back line and Whitfield to the fwd or mid line and keep my best rookies for D6,M8,F6 and that will be it. Good luck to you to Keen, I think we are in two leagues together, so we will see what happens there.

TBone_23

Cheers for the response DJ mate. I reckon you’ve got a good point there! It just comes down to do you reckon Boak +100k is worth more than a Fyfe? Something that could be debated to the ends of the earth. In the end comes down to how much you trust that rookie on field to score. If it was to be best 18 here on in, I reckon your theory would be the best bet though mate. I reckon I’ll be grabbing two decent looking bubble rookies Bytel and Wicks this week though, who you looking at grabbing mate?

JohnDJ59

Hi TBone, I guess the main reason I'm going down that path is due to the amount of trades I have left, not many, but also the fact that some of my rookies are scoring not too badly or at least you know what to expect from them, Noble, McPherson, Budarich, Close, Aarts, are rookies I don't mind having on field. I'll be adding Wicks and Bytel this coming round and I'll probably be getting Whitfield in.

TBone_23

That’s fair mate, I’ll be down to 6 after using 3 this week! I agree, most of those bloke will pump out respectable scores almost every week. I think I will ride out Close on field for as long as I can in my fwd line but wanting to cash in on Budarick to a Wicks this week

JohnDJ59

Good call TBone, Starcevich will be leaving my team for Wicks and I'll probably trade out Butler for Bytel if named, moving Dusty to the fwd line.

Russty_

Full premo this year is a relative term this year Tbone, just get a team together who you think will score you the most points in any given week going fwd.

Derek

I’ve pretty much run out of cash. Have $180k in bank to upgrade Pickett to a decent M8. Hill and Rankine to a decent F5 and just run with Devon at F6 and Lukosious at D6.

I assume we have 3 trades this week?

I don’t have Lloyd or Haynes, both had their byes, if I find some cash behind the couch (that’s where I’ll be watching Lloyd from) I might try and upgrade Houston. Same with Chad to Dusty is I get squeeze some extra cash out of a cow before finals

Demons Delight

Looks like we are stuck with Nic nac. It is that kind of year when 20 is going to be about our maximum I am riding AARTS and Cameron home at F5 and F6 ,BUT checking out General Soreness ,the no.2 he has 18 genuine keepers Steele being a bit iffy I have19 with B .Smith and Simpkin a bit suss and your good self also 19 but IMO 5 NOT QUITE THERE Houston Wingard Lukosious Devon and Zac Williams Those 5 can easily ton up as they have but The General has 18 real premo contenders In any other year those 5 you have would become LLOYDS because cows fatten more and the extra 6 rounds gives you time. It will be interesting to see if Shane can add to his 18 keepers and give it a shake ,let's hope so also I am intrigued to see how many premos your 5 turn into Extra trades will help but we need cash as well best of luck derek NDD

derek

General Soreness team value is $13.1mil.

that is the big difference. Mine is $12.3mil

12.3 cant complete with 13.1 in the run home

i was more focused on points this year and didn't build enough team value like i do most other years.

Demons Delight

What is the best way to build team value I would have thought points and team value go hand in hand.

derek

i have always asked that question. what comes first.

look at the top 20 teams, their team values are mostly over 13mil.

Are they high ranked because of their team value, or is their team value high because of their rank?

Keenbutclueless

The General’s team is an interesting read. He still has 4 rookies on field. I have 2. But he is the length of the Flemington straight ahead of me.
It is the combination of nailing mid pricers and starting premos that hit me.

For the mid pricers – he has hit with Ridley, Short, Doedee (as a steppingstone not as keeper), Steele, Petracca, Greenwood, Brayshaw. I think he has possibly brought in B Smith. Possibly Ridley was also a buy, not a starter. What I don’t see is Doc, Houston and D Smith. I wonder if he started with them and traded them out. seven hits – that’s gold. Getting one or two right is normally as good as you can hope for. Seven!

I suspect he started with Lloyd and brought in Whitfield. Would love to ask him.

The absolute essentials this season have been Lloyd, Macrae, Neale, Oliver, Grundy, Gawn, Petracca. Start with those and you are in track. Not have those and you can’t catch up.

I also notice no Fyfe, Cripps, Danger, D Martin. Out with the old and in with the new. That analysis that I saw on SuperCoach Talk that found its way on here about scoring in the prime age of 24-28 and the downhill slide after 28 is absolutely spot on. I suspect he’s brought Whitfield in, meaning apart from Jelly he’s gone for durability.

As I say, a really interesting read. Trying to digest the information as a learning tool for next year. It’s looking more and more like a mixture of guns rookies and emerging mid pricers. But gun now is absolute top shelf, not just top 10-15.

Personally I feel really good about looking at his team. Structure wise I went in the same. Picking premos the same. Even though he is is 2nd and I am 9k, it feels we were not that far apart. Which goes to show how one or two selections can make or break a season.

Maybe it’s too early and the wrong season to be drawing any conclusions, but for me it’s really interesting to try to understand why I am not better at this game.

derek

this year has been very different. so many trades, can chase points by trading out players who miss for one or two weeks, where i would hold them in other years

i've had two top 100 finishes, and both those years i was lucky with avoiding injuries. perfect example this year was when Whitfield and Sturt had very low scores, i didn't have either and would be in top 150 now, except they made that round best 18.

ive also noticed it is hard to catch up in the second half of the season, as most of the top teams start looking very similar. early on, you can make massive jumps in rank with a couple of good weeks, but if your not top 500 after first 5 weeks, it is hard to get anywhere near the top.

i've also seen teams fall off the cliff when they run out of trades, that was me last year, dropped 20k places in last 4 weeks with no trades left.

derek

i have experimented with my 'wifes' team. this year i suggested to her that she didn't start with any of the very expensive players but gets every 'hot' mid price player. you know the ones, rozee, simpkin, witts, ridley, mills, pittonet, brayshaw, menagola.

its been an interesting experiment with the team value over 13mil and rank about 700

Demons Delight

Hi Keen your opening line says it all 'he has 4 rooks onfield ,i have 2' suggesting his remaining 18 are all top shelf ,no Houstons or Docs 18 quality players Nailing those 8 or 9 ubers is the key then fluking the right midpricers.I find it super extroadinating he nailed 7 I GOT TWO and thought it was great but 7 wow no wonder he is up there. Derek has had a wonderful year but that separates him from Shane and it could well be luck Ridley Short and Steele could so easily have been Houston Lukosious and Devon Smith ,then derek would be like Holty last year ,,,right up there I remember that round Derek was talking about and thinking he is going to jump high then all his good luck was gone with the 18 ruling. Great reading Keen cheers NDD

JohnDJ59

My team is valued at 12.3 mil as well Derek and you are kicking my butt, so it really depends on if you are getting the value out of your players score wise.

TBone_23

I feel your pain on that Derek, I don’t have Lloyd either and every time I open up fanfooty after a Sydney game it’s a hold your breath moment every time. I like those mid priced low value premos you’ve listed though mate! All could go big any given week. Who are you looking to go Pickett up to this week mate?

derek

Pickett up to either Merrett or Taranto. both $540k.

i will have another look at Yeo who is still under $500k

was only looking at players who have had their bye. if the Bont had his bye i'd be getting him

derek

the big fella at the swans i have my eye on for $394k

TBone_23

I was looking at both of those boys too mate, Taranto as a POD looks very tasty indeed. Have you considered Parker at all Derek?

I reckon they sit the big Bud out for the rest of the season, otherwise he will be a very popular target for many

TBone_23

Yeah that’s the ultimate aim Russty, but hard to guess whether Close and Dusty outscore Boak and Rozee haha. I reckon I’ll try and keep to the safest plan I’ve always done, bringing in bottomed out proven premos or well priced premos who have had their bye

How good does Laird look playing in midfield. Could be a permanent move. Any chance he loses def eligibility if it keeps up? Also, Fyfe any chance to get forward eligibility next season. Seems to spend half his time up there. Chur.

Good chance Danger might be a forward next season as well

will keep defence.

there is a chance he might get mid as well and be DPP

Can everyone join the Group Code 920656 before the start of Round 12

(i'll repost reminders during the week)

But if your not in the group by the start of Round 12, we start without you.

once we have the final number (I know its hard to believe that everyone who qualified wouldn't join, but some times a few of us find a life outside of Supercoach), i will do the calculations on how many teams will be eliminated each week and how many will get immunity.

Thanks fellas.

sorry Lek, you and the puppies fell at the last hurdle to get into the next stage
