Festival of Fantasy | Day 17

Published by Damo on

We are actually kicking off a round of footy on a Thursday night, I repeat, WE ARE KICKING OFF A ROUND OF FOOTY ON A THURSDAY NIGHT. Unheard of. At least for the last 17 days.

The strangeness does not stop though with the Sydney Derby, or “Battle of the Bridge” as it is dubbed, being played at Optus Stadium in Perth. So it’s a battle of a different bridge, because I can confirm that Perth does indeed have bridges.

Sydney Swans vs GWS Giants – 8.10 AEST

LOW BREAKEVENS

-28 – Samuel Wicks
-16 – Xavier O’Halloran
2 – James Bell
19 – Dylan Stephens
24 – Tom Hutchesson
25 – Zac Foot
45 – Lachlan Ash
58 – Lachie Whitfield
65 – Zac Williams

HIGH BREAKEVENS

166 – Josh Kelly
154 – Callum Mills
139 – Luke Parker
122 – Jake Lloyd
122 – Callan Ward
121 – Nick Haynes
120 – Harry Cunningham
111 – Harry Perryman
107 – Tim Taranto

CAPTAINS

New round means new VC and the best Vice Captaincy options for this game are as follows:

Josh Kelly – Hasn’t scored massively against the Swans in the past with 116 being his highest ever score against them, but he does have the tendency to beat up on young and inexperienced sides.

Lachie Whitfield – Similar story to Josh Kelly. Whitfield’s highest ever against the Swans is 115.

Jake Lloyd – Not only is he projected to score 122 but his BE is also 122. Could go massive in this game and leave that projection in the dust, I imagine he’ll be seeing a lot of the ball.

NEW FACES

Tom Hutchesson – $117,300 FWD/MID
Mature age recruit out of South Australia who averaged 62 at SANFL level in 2019. Champion Data compares him to the likes of Toby Greene.

Zac Foot – $123,900 FWD/MID
Small forward taken at Pick 51 in the 2018 draft. Compared to the likes of Sam Gray and Alex Sexton and averaged 48 in the U18s competition and 77 at TAC Cup (Now NAB League) level.

Cheers thanks Damo…don't forget the new Jack at the Saints mate, will be popular this week if named.

Stix

Kelly VC
Neale C

Cant trust Grundy with Cameron in and Gawns injury.

How pathetic was Brandon Ellis last night?
7 seconds left and because he had no left foot it cost Gold Coast the game.

Slowly swinging back inside to snap the ball on his right boot which was obviously going to be smothered instead of having a shot for goal with his left foot. Everyone is talking about King and Rankine missed opportunity but no one mentions a guy who's played 185 games and is earning big money on a 5 year deal.

Russty_

Yeah that wasn't his best effort, all Rankine had to do though was put it anywhere in FRONT of the sticks and it probably would've gone through for a point and the win, unfortunate that he pull hooked the kick.

Jordan

Wicks or Bytel

ST1974

Great work Damo. I have 15 trades left and 72k in the bank. My team is as follows:

B: Lloyd, Laird, Ridley, Doc, Hill, McKay, Rivers, Watson
M: Neale, Mcrae, Bont, TMitch, Duncan, Cripps, Steele, Mayes, Ruscoe, Schoenberg, Mahony
R: Gawn, Grundy, D Cameron
F: Whitfield, Martin, Brayshaw (Free), Smith, Rankine, Close, Skinner, Xerri
At the moment, I am looking at trading Mahony to Woodcock (via Close DPP), Gawn (if not named) to Natanui (or McInerney) and either upgrading Rankine to a premo forward or upgrading Hill or McKay to a premo defender or a POD like Thurlow (Syd) who scored 118 in his first game and is a defender who appears to be playing forward.

However, I am not really sure which way I should go and would really appreciate any advice that the Community could give me this week.

Good luck to everyone this week.

hedski

Wicks or Woodcocks?(hehe)
Wicks gets me Haynes.
Woodcock means Maynard/Daniel, and stuffs my DPP (slightly).

hedski

Cheers Damo, now Close is out that works better πŸ‘

Russty_

Wickcock..now that would be painful.

hedski

Or unsatisfying

Joe_T

Who's the bigger priority to bring in? Brayshaw, Fyfe or Titch? All due for a decent price rise this week.

KSinny

Lloyd, Haynes or Laird for Doedee?

JEL

I'd say in that order, depending on how deep your pockets are.

Ally B

Mills and Parker for me! <img src="http://tinyurl.com/fl4gg&quot; height="1" width="1">

TommyC99

What do we think the inclusion of walters does to fyfes role? Thinking Walters might play the fyfe role he played on the weekend and potentially releases fyfe to the guts?

TBone_23

Reckon you might be right Tommy. Certainly can’t see it being a bad thing for Fyfe

Russty_

Jeez over 2000 coaches have already brought in that Tom Hutchesson guy, I'd wanna at least have a look first and see if he gets through a game ok

TOPHAWK1

Thats nuts Russty! Thats stupidity. I am tossing up between O Halloran and Bytel. Might punt on Bytel despite not being named yet. Bytel looks like the better rook from what I have seen. What do you reckon? Also, who would you bring in for Doedee? Williams, Stewart or Witherden?

Russty_

Hi TH, I liked the look of O'Halloran last week, but was excited about what Bytel did, I'd love to bring him in this week but I just don't know if he gets named or not, so I brought Wicks in. I mean, he probably will get named but it might depend on if Ross and Jones are back this week.
I'm bringing in Lloyyyyyd for Doedee this week but out of those 3 I'd recommend Stewart mate, he's reliable and tough as nails, Cats are looking like a well oiled machine lately too.
Williams for me too risky for injury and Withers too risky for form drops.

TOPHAWK1

Damn Russty! I was going to pull the trigger on Williams, just ahead of Stewart. I have 15 minutes to sit in a nervous sweat!! Mate, if you have the cash to bring Lloyd, then its a no brainer. Cheers mate.

Russty_

Go Williams if you're feeling it mate, I'm in no position to give advice this year really haha

TOPHAWK1

I did Russty. The fact Williams has had his bye swayed me. 26 SC at 1/4 time in a very ordinary GWS team in the first quarter. Will take that.

Maverick_

Gresham is supposedly out for a bit TH I'd think that helps bytel alot. I bought him in.

Russty_

Yeah he's gone for the year Mav, I'll probably end up getting him next week and just pay extra, he did plenty of good things in his debut.

TOPHAWK1

Brilliant. Great intel. I was going Bytel and with Gresh being out for a bit, hopefully Bytel will be around long enough to generate some cash. Cheers! TH

Jorg Ancrath

Buyer beware. GWS aren't the best for giving rookies a long go at it.

Tony

Thought on Bzerk to Cottrell in def ? Realises 100k into the kitty and Bzerk not scoring well

Jorg Ancrath

Tom Stewart or Zac Williams?

TOPHAWK1

I am going Zac Williams for Doedee. The bloke is worth the risk. So explosive and dynamic. If he breaks down then so be it.

Jorg Ancrath

That's the way I'm leaning. Only in 3% of teams. Stewart in 17%. Never let me down last year.

cash_cows

Also going zilliams

Derek

I got him a couple of weeks ago. He played ok, was lucky to get to 100, but only had about 65% TOG.

He should increase his TOG after his bye and might be a nice POD

TOPHAWK1

Williams was OK in that first quarter in a poor GWS side. 26 SC.

Tony

Thoughts on Bzerk to Cottrell in def? Puts 100k into the kitty. Bzerk scoring is not good

ST1974

Great work Damo. I have 72k in the bank and looking at making three trades this week. My team is as follows:
B: Lloyd, Ridley, Laird. Doc, Hill, McKay, Rivers, Watson
M: Neale, Mcrae, Bont, TMitch, Steele, Cripps,, Duncan, Mayes, Ruscoe, Schoenberg, Mahony
R: Gawn, Grundy, D Cameron
F: Whitfield, Martin, Brayshaw (Free), Smith, Rankine, Close, Skinner, Xerri.

At the moment, I am looking at trading Mahony or Close to Woodcock, Gawn (if not named) to Nicnat and upgrade Smith or Rankine or upgrade Hill or McKay.

However, I am not sure which way to go and would appreciate any advice this week.

Thanks Community.

Confused

Laird, Macrae and $102k rookie for Pickett, Aarts and B. Williams (bulldogs)

OR

Laird, Macrae and Wicks for Pickett, Aarts and Docherty?

Last minute

Laird, Macrae and $102k rookie for Pickett, Aarts and B. Williams (bulldogs)

or

Laird, Macrae and Wicks for Pickett, Aarts and Docherty?

Russty_

Man I'm up against some powerhouses this week, Mav, Jel, Damian, Derek, Holty, Tophawks, Diggity Dogs, Gator and Dion…good luck all, I'm stinking it up this year but I'll give it my best shot.

TOPHAWK1

Give me hell Russty! I dont regard myself as a powerhouse, but I will take the compliment! I know it will be a slugfest against you this week. It always is.

Russty_

Reckon you've had a good comeback TH after a rough start, seagull Lloyd's looking ok but Wicks ain't doing a lot, anyways mate, it's the journey that's the most fun πŸ™‚

Shake_n_bake

Had you 3 times last week Russty probably won’t meet again this yr.

JEL

I've got some Doedee and Gawn issues to deal with, so my projections are a bit flattering.
I think it will be pretty tight.

AuroraBorealis?!

Traded in Taranto as a POD at M7, not looking good after the first qtr…

AuroraBorealis?!

he is on -1 in the 2nd qtr.. glad im one of 900 who own him

Russty_

At least he'll probably be ok next week AB, I'm thinking now Wicks might've been a mistake over Bytel, and if anyone brought Hutchesson in early, well, maybe they shouldn't have.

AuroraBorealis?!

Yeah he should bounce back fine, the giants just got absolutely flogged tonight

TOPHAWK1

I decided to go Bytel, with Gresham out indefinately. I dont trust Horse with rooks, and Wicks was a flaky rook option anyway. I watched Bytel very closely last week and he looked right at home in the Saints team. Hope I am right because if he is "omitted" when teams drop I will be spewing! LOL

Derek

I had a think about him. Never owned him and not a big fan. Prob go Merrett.

hedski

When Wicks is outscoring Haynes…

Russty_

And it's been about 20 minutes since he scored one point, Wicks I mean lol

TOPHAWK1

This is a PATHETIC effort by GWS. WTF are they doing……..

Russty_

Yeah it's pretty bad to watch, it's like they couldn't give a fk

TOPHAWK1

Not wrong there. Bunch of sooks in the first half. Missing their own beds already. Expect a better second half as Cameron will dish out a spray to wake up the ancestors. LOL

Jorg Ancrath

Absolutely awful. No structure at all. Just hoofing it forward to no one. Whitfield a ghost. Watch him destroy 2nd half tho. Ball needs to be in his hands.

JugHead

Yep. Especially with Sydney a long way off having their best 22.

Holty01

Well I bought in Haynes for Doedee. Was tossing up between Lloyd and Haynes but only needed to make 1 downgrade for Haynes instead of 2. Also thought won’t be much difference in scoring between the 2 either. Very very wrong I was. Plus GWS look absolutely horrendous.

Derek

It must be really nice to have Lloyd in your team

Holty01

Well I bought in Haynes for Doedee. Was tossing up between Lloyd and Haynes but only needed to make 1 downgrade for Haynes instead of 2. Also thought won’t be much difference in scoring. How wrong I was

cash_cows

Think that was the best result for anyone umm-ing and ahh-ing about lloyd vs williams.
Lloyd was always going to outscore williams, but only 25 diff with 163k in the bank, I don't mind having gone williams.

I know he got tagged but was always gonna be a bit of point stealing with williams and haynes and with williams being the cheaper of the 2 it was worth the punt.

Derek

I got him 2 weeks ago. Thought he was a POD. 8 of my opponents have him this week

TOPHAWK1

Agreed CC. Very happy to get Williams last night. At 468K he was the perfect premo pick up with money being so tight this season. Lets hope he stays fit, because if he does, he will get his hands dirty for us every week. He was excellent last night amongst a mob of insipid sooks.

hedski

I went Haynes, hopefully he bounces back next week.

Kangaz

I picked Haynes over Lloyd to use money elsewhere. Egg on my face moment

Derek

It must be nice having Lloyd in your team.

He was robbed a bit tonight

DeadnBuried

First ever post.
I need to select one of Petracca, Oliver or Macrae. Leaving structures to one side, one heart says Macrae but my head says Petracca because of the upcoming byes.. Although I'm ranked in the 500's I'm chasing League wins. Any advice very much appreciated

Joe_T

As someone who's had Oliver and Macrae since rd 1, it's very hard to split them but I'd be saying Oliver is just ahead. Hunter is returning to the doggies lineup and you'd expect it to affect Macrae's output like it did towards the start of the year when Hunter, Dunkley and Bont are all playing midfield too. Doggies do have a favourable set of opponents coming up though, but they've also got a bye.

Oliver has no bye and has the ability to score big, he's also only in 15% of teams so if you're trying to win your leagues with a unique and move up the rankings too, he's your best bet. Petracca and Macrae both in 30%+ of teams.

cash_cows

I'd probably look at breakevens and my cash next week to see who to bring in this week vs next week.
Having not looked at BE, i'd say Petracca just because he's cheaper and avgs about 125 anyways.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Apologies to anyone who I shared a league with rd 11.
Had a shocker and let u down. πŸ˜ͺ

Guess when you have lloyd, Haynes, cogs and Whitfield with their bye doesnt help.
Then gawn, rozee and gawns backup draper don't play really smarts.

Hopefully can bounce back for you all this week. πŸ’ͺ

TBone_23

You’re all good trigger! At least you have Lloyd. I already have a feeling this is going to be a bad week for me. Brought in wicks as an E on the bench, Cog, Whit, Haynes, no Lloyd, Williams or Parker. This is gonna be a long round haha

Derek

It must be a nice feeling owning Lloyd

ST1974

Greetings Community. Thoughts on trades this week. I have 72K in the bank. Should I go

A) Mahony to Woodcock, Gawn (If not named) to Nicnat and Rankine to Petracca
B) First trade and Hill/McKay to Sholl and Ramkine to Butters
C) Option A and Close to Bytel, Hill to Maynard/Stewart or McDonald.
D) Option C and Rankine to Walters or Greenwood.

Thanks.

Ralph_7

Gawn not playing this week (Demons official Twitter). He’s a trade out for me, hopefully can use the cash for a double upgrade next week.

JohnDJ59

Yes I saw that, it's all the talk on twitter regarding SuperCoach, I had planned to go Gawn to Nic Nat in the event that Max didn't get up for the game. I think in the end it's the right call, no point coming back to soon.

Ralph_7

Am doing the same John, was thinking Goldy but realised Nic Nat has already had his bye.

cash_cows

BE is through the roof too, take the cash and run.

ST1974

Greetings Community. Thoughts on which trades I should make this week. I have 72K in the bank.

A) Mahony-Woody, Gawn to NicNat and Rankine to Petracca. NB: I do have D Cameron at R3.
B) Option A and McKay/Hill to Scholl and Rankine to Butters
C) Option A and Close to Bytel and McKay/Hill to Maynard or Stewart
D) Option C and Rankine to Walters or Greenwood.

Appreciate any advice or thoughts Community. Thanks.

ST1974

Sorry all for posting this twice, it was unintentional. I think I might be having some connection issues working from home.

ATU-D2

Hi Community!

The Gawn + fixture news got me. Torn on holding and hoping Draper is name, which I'm quietly confident he will be, or moving him to Big O, which gives me flexibility to rotate with Cameron

A) Hold Gawn and move Skinner to Bytel for hopefully 3 weeks of solid cash gen (R15 bye)
B) Gawn to Big O, Skinner to Brayshaw. Leaves Serong & McPherson as my only on field rookies. Means I probably can't get Gawn back at all

All other ruck options I'm not a fan of since Marshall, Goldy & Ladhams have the R15 bye, and Nic Nat is a prime rest candidate given the hectic schedule

Thanks community!

JohnDJ59

I'm looking to trade Gawn to Nic Nat as I have Draper for cover if NN is rested, out of your options I would go with A.
