PODCAST | James Sicily replacements

Published by Lekdog on

The Festival of Fantasy is over but it didn’t go without claiming some victims…

The lads look at who can replace Sicily, Gawn and more in your Supercoach side.

We also mentally prepare for the upcoming Festival of Fantasy 2: Electric Booglaoo…

10/10 – “I traded Bailey Smith but this pod kept me smiling” – Someone, probably.

Luke McDonald. Is he for real ? Punt him to continue to deliver for the rest of the seasons ? Any thoughts on why he is scoring so well now ?

Grab Em Tigers

Tom De Koning 148k vs Zac Foot 123kAndrew Gaff 475k vs Travis Boak 474k (+bye) vs Angus Brayshaw 417k?

The Ranger

I’m going with Foot as he’s got the DPP and I think he can hold his spot. Handy M11 at worst. And I’d go Gaff over Boak because of his bye.
Very tempted by Angus.

JugHead

I’m gunna trade Foot in.
The DPP is handy, and I already have Wicks and Bell as Swans rookies.
I figure the Swans are giving all the kids a run, and surely the Swans can’t drop ALL of the ones I have…………..ummmm… well I’m hoping not.

Demons Deelight

Looking at Starscevic Ranger for Duncan gets me freo’s Brayshaw for a cheapie NDD

TRIGGA HAPPY

Great pod as usual. Thanks for the shout out fellas. 👍
Lets everyone get behind the ISOlators and see if we can get my song to go viral!

(Can you even say that anymore?) 🤣

Can’t get it out of my head Trigg Played lead in a group early 70’s Hendrix Cream stuff and it was tough yours sounds great Is that you on vocals ?if so you have talent my friend keep going NDD

TRIGGA HAPPY

Thanks mate. Appreciate the support. Have u listened to our other one a parody of working class man?

I’ve got a voice that is reserved for the shower only. 😜

I write them. My mate records them and then I match the pics to the recording and voila.
Another ISOlators parody is born.

We are releasing one a week every Wednesday. I have written 12 so far.

Tomorrow’s song is a powerful tragic parody

We r really enjoying it. A good hobby to pass the time during lockdown. 👍

We r right behind the capt too.
So close pull the right TRIGGA’S and you may just find yourself $50k richer.

Anyone who can navigate their way through the labyrinth of festival of footy and come out on top will be a most deserving winner.

Go forth soreness…. 😁

The Ranger

Got a few players right up there Trigga, Banchang Barflys and Brocks Beast are both in the top 20 as well as the General.

derek

always interesting to look at what the top scorer of the week’s team looked like. Gives us hope that could be us one day.

This weeks top score of 2747 included D Cameron at R2, McPherson at D6 and only had Macrae as C.

Obviously had the Bont, BSmith, Hawkins and Ryan.

Still has 3 rookies on field

Shake n Bake

I’ve been running with Draper at R2 l sold Gawn at 790k and was able to bring in Bont and Mitchell for a little extra coin. Will be very interesting this week when the teams fall. I have Simpson Aarts and Noble to upgrade

The Ranger

I still have 3 x rookies to upgrade too, M8, D6 and F6.
With three of the remaining rounds being best 18 I’m not sure I’ll bother upgrading my D6 and F6. I’ll look to get an M8 and then maybe luxury trade my Dev Smith/Wingard types to better options.
Brayshaw (Demons) is very tempting at M8. Had his bye and playing in the guts again.
Just need him to stay there.

Joe_T

Finally over this festival of footy, gearing up for the next one!
In order of scoring potential from here on in, what would it be for Danger, Fyfe, Titch and Cripps?

JR SURVIVOR CHAMPION of CHAMPIONS GROUP

what a star studded bunch has emerged from the group rounds of the JR SURVIVOR.

of the 24 remaining teams, 10 are ranked in the top 1,000 overall. But in the cut-throat world of JR SURVIVOR, rank means nothing.

with 24 remaining teams and 5 rounds before the grand final (we won’t be playing round 15) means that each week we have to say goodbye to 4 teams.
same rules as before; the lowest 4 scoring teams in the round will be eliminated, unless you are holding the immunity necklace from the previous week. in the case of a tie, the team with the highest rank will survive.
only ONE immunity necklace will be available to the team with the highest score

Teams that have been eliminated this week (2193 was the cutt-off):
Liverpool
Tophawks
@VoteSustainable
Mitch is Back

The team with the highest score, and therefore proudly wears the immunity necklace for next round is:
Banchang Barflys (2523) – Currently ranked 7th Overall
nice work BB.

good luck fellas

Choppers

This round might be a bit of a downer having to replace Sicily so Immunity necklace gratefully accepted.
Cheers

tophawk

Bugger! I am gone. It was a great ride whilst it lasted. Happy getting to the top 30 odd for my first season. Looking forward to playing this great concept again next season. Cudos to you Derek! Cheers, Tophawk

FearTheBeard

Hopefully Gawn is back. Don’t wanna trade him especially reading Nic Nat rested?

I might have to sell Close early so I can get Simkin next week for one of my final 2 upgrades.

Derek

It would be nice to have a week to look at Max and see he is going ok before getting him back, plus NicNats price rise and Gawns likely drop would be even nicer.

But if NicNat out will have to go early.

FearTheBeard

Latest sounds like both might be out 😐

tommyc99

Hey guys,
Would love your thoughts which combo to pick! The defender will most likely be picked up next week as all options have a high BE!
Def: Maynard, Haynes, Ridley
Midfield: Adams, JKelly, Parker
As a pies man id ideally love at least one of those, but ive never been ranked this high so that takes priority over my loyalties lol
Please let me know!

The Ranger

I’m only bringing in players that have had their bye.

Derek

Hurn looks outstanding value as a D6

Shake n Bake

Rampe our rest of the season

Nick

Thoughts on Jackson Thurlow community?
I can do Cripps n Thurlow/ hurn
Or
A Brayshaw and Williams/Saad

Nick

cheers Lekdog
Current team is:
Def: llyod, laird, short, doc, rids, Sic
Mids: Neale, J Kelly, Fyfe, cogs, dusty, duncan, T kelly, Serong
R: Grundy, NN
Fwd: petracca, whits, A Braysshaw, greenwood, Simpkin and Woody

Joker

lol @ Cripps 115 ppg. His ave is 102 and five of twelve games below 100 and only twice 100+ in last 6 games

FearTheBeard

Lads is Gawn a must sell?

Tommyc99

You’ve held this long I probably would still hold unless you hear it’s another 2 weeks

FearTheBeard

I have Grundy & Draper (who I want to sell soon for another premium)… What you think?

tiddlywinks17

Anyone else jumping on the Gus Brayshaw train for M8?

Telescopic Cox

Thanks for the content during the festival of footy! Pulled out a monster 2619 last round which was good for a round rank of 14th (humble brag)

This week I’ll be looking at best premos sub $500k and bye free, given I’m still running 3 rookies on field (Noble, Schoenberg & Hill).Gaff is appealing for his price as is Gus Brayshaw who seems undervalued.

Nick

C.Mills or Z. Williams?
Leaning towards Mills, however, his role may be altered due to Rampe being out? Thoughts?

FearTheBeard

I was going Z Williams. Why Mills?

tommyc99

Williams for me. Then again i got williams in last week. Think his role is more solid and giants run home is very good.

TRIGGA HAPPY

With Rampe out for the season does this give Gould his chance?

🙏 cmon.🐴
I’ve had him since rd 1!

derek

good point

hedski

Testing my login, about to listen to the pod.

hedski

I have Sic and Yeo, I could get Ryan and Angus but I’ve been burnt by both, thought about Mills and Miller but their names are to similar so I might settle on Daniel and Parker.
Great pod once again, cheers for keeping up the content fellas 👏

Kat

just wondering why people are only trading players who have had their bye. Am I reading things wrong? I thought their were no H2H matches for round 15 so wouldn’t players in that round having their bye in Rnd15 be OK to pick up as well???

derek

all depends on if you are going for overall rank, or trying to win leagues.

going for rank, round 15 is a massive opportunity to jump in the ranking if you can field 18 strong players

Luke Parisot

yeah this. 14 premos currently for round 15, hoping to get that up to 16 by then, maybe even 17. after trades this week i’m 3 off full premo. tons of cash on the bench in noble, cameron, aarts, rankine, 120k in the bank.

Kat

Thanks Derek. Didn’t realise that while there were no H2H matches your overall total scoring still continued. Makes sense now.

No Second Prizes

Testing

No Second Prizes

Hi Guys,
First time posting here but just wanted to say thanks to all for the Pods and endless info provided on this site. Have been following for a long time but never posted. Finished 83rd last year and 10th this year to date, a lot is thanks to the intel of you guys each week. So keep up the good work!!

Russty_

Welcome mate…this place only just started looking like this so we’re all getting used to it …congrats on the high rankings, sounds like you have a bit of a clue about what you’re doing. Keep us posted as to how you end up too 🙂

No Second Prizes

Thanks Russty, in this game you need a lot of luck and this year I seem to have traded in players just at the right time. Fingers crossed for the rest of the season but round 15 will be the test for everyone.

Jess

I only have 14 premos playing in round 15, with barely any rookies to help. Ranked top 90 overall. Next week i can bring in one fwd premium who has had their bye. After that, would it be best if i sideways the likes of simpkin, duncan and then maybe danger or bont? Hate to do it but need the points

No Second Prizes

If you want to keep top 100 spot, sideways trading a must I would say. That is if you have the trades up your sleeve?

Jess

With the added trades I have 10 before this week, and probably 8 after this week with a bit of cash. 2 upgrades left both in the fwd line. If i have to use 2 or 3 on sideways trades I guess i have to. Have to give it a shot. If i stretch i think I can get 18 premos on field in rd 15 with one upgrade left and 2 or 3 trades left from rd 16 onwards.

No Second Prizes

Sounds a good plan. With the extra trades given some sideways trades are acceptable this year. The unknown of the Upcoming byes made it hard to know if we had too many players from any single round. But the extra trades more than made up for this so use them Good luck 😉 but not too much luck as you might go flying past me 😂

tbone19

congrats on your rank, what is your team name Jess? I would say if you have to take care of Sicily that is first priority for sure, then after that getting a rookie off the field this week for best 22 would be next priority with sidestepping premos for bye structure being the last priority.

Derek

Round 15 is very important regards rank. If you can go into round 15 with 18 or more premos, there is a chance of gaining 200+ points on teams ahead. With 3 trades a week, a danger or Macrae switcharoo could easy be the go

Jess

I will have to sideways two -three premos just because cats and dogs share the same bye. This will need to be smith duncan simpkin or danger/bont. I might be one short of full premo, or i might make full premo buthave like 1 trade left. Still have to give it a shot

Russty_

Out of those guys, I’d only sideways Simpkin and Duncan, Simpkin’s turned out to be a yoyo and Duncan a bit under what he can do.

The Ranger

Is there a “latest activity” button somewhere?

Russty_

It’s at the top where the comments start Ranger ,”newest” but, I don’t think it includes replies to other comments, only the original comment.
I wonder if Lekky could adjust this setting to include all comments and replies in the “newest” comments category?

tbone19

Not a good score this week with 2270. Was worried my loophole could be a late in so left the C on Macrae so lost a few points out there. Def was pretty tragic scoring wise but I feel most teams would have struggled with that this week. Sicily unfortunately has gotta go this week and with no money itb I’ve effectively got two options.

  1. Sicily to Lloyd, Budarick to Foot
  2. Sicily to ZWilliams, Budarick to Foot/Neil

Option 1 gets me Lloyd now but leaves me $10k itb which will be hard to find a way to upgrade Aarts with next week. Option 2 leaves me with $160-180k itb allowing me to go Aarts up next week with just one trade to complete my fwd line. Which option would give me the most points going forward? Cheers guys

Russty_

Hi Tbone, I forked out for Lloyd last week and he delivered me a 137, that being said, I think in your situation I’d go for Williams and keep that extra cash to complete your side.
Anyone can go down with an injury any week so you need some moolah in reserve I reckon for making the forced or by choice, big move.

tbone19

Cheers Russty! Yeah that’s the sort of score you can expect to see from Lloyd most weeks. That’s a big reason why im afraid to not have him. Hmm it’s a big toss up, but if the extra money saved from getting Williams doesn’t get me up to a proper mid premo then it may be worth just grabbing Lloyd and waiting for these new cash cows and Draper to grow before finishing upgrades. Lloyd and rookie vs Williams and underpriced premo ($500k or less)

Dann

I know a lot like the look of Brayshaw but I do think it will pay to remember that Viney didn’t play 2 weeks back & then was managed through this last game.

Peter

CBA’s – Round 12 Game 4 – Melbourne 26 – Braydon Preuss 22, Clayton Oliver 20, Angus Brayshaw 19, Jack Viney 17, Christian Petracca 16, Tom Sparrow 6 & Tom McDonald 4

JugHead

Every now and then a player pops up on the radar who has dropped well below their long term price range.
They have still got what it takes, but age, injuries and role changes have hurt their scoring consistency. I salute them anyway for the scores they gave me in their prime.
Examples are Gaz jnr and Kade Simpson. They are no longer in my team, but I smile when they score well, knowing they can still create havoc if an opponent doesn’t give them enough respect.
Another one has popped up. This week, Selwood is at $375k. He is still going to punch out the occasional big score, but not reliably enough for a $500K+ price tag.
Enjoy your SC retirement Joel. You earned it.

The Ranger

Spot on JugHead. He wouldn’t be the worst M8 even now.

DEESNUTSRBIG

How are teams rucks looking at the moment and strategy going forward.
I have Grundy, Draper. Cameron.
Wanted to make some cash and get Gawn back in when he dropped in price but his delay just leaves to many points on the table waiting with Draper/Cameron stalling. Already used maximum trades (minus 1 all season). Godstein-NicNat are an option but have to trade d.smith (BE 56) from F6 and Cameron (BE 27) .Simpson at M8 needs upgrading also.

Russty_

Hey Dees, you need a decent R2..can’t rely on Draper or Cameron, D.Smith is a shit stain for sure, not sure how long Simpson is out for but he’d have to go first I’d think.

tophawk

Hey Russty. Keep this one quiet mate. Everyone is looking at Simpkin this week. TH is looking at Seb Ross……What a bargain! SSSHHH Cheers mate. TH

Russty_

Good luck with him mate, I hope he pays dividends for ya..he’s definitely a talent.

No Second Prizes

hey Dees,
The big problem with Nic Nat is an impending “managed” even though he has had his bye. I have no doubt west coast will want him fresh for finals.

DEESNUTSRBIG

“We’ve always said with our group it’s a squad mentality that needs to get us over the line,” Simpson told Channel Seven.
“We’ve tried a number of players this year and no doubt we’ll be digging deep into our list in the next month.
“We’re doing that now. It’s going to magnify even more with a shorter turnaround with each game.
“Mature list, some of our players are going to need a rest at stages, so we’re ready for it.”

Eleven Eagles have played every game so far in 2020 – including warhorses Josh Kennedy and Shannon Hurn, plus talismanic ruck Nic Naitanui.
Hard-running wingman Andrew Gaff, star recruit Tim Kelly, Dom Sheed, Brad Sheppard, Jamie Cripps, Tom Barrass, Liam Ryan and Jack Darling also haven’t missed a game to date.
With the prospect of five games in 19 days starting from this Sunday against Greater Western Sydney, the Eagles could delve deep into the squad to get through upcoming clashes with Richmond, Essendon, Western Bulldogs and St Kilda.

The Ranger

Smith at F6 can wait methinks. And Draper/Cameron will score as well as a rookie on another line so they don’t have to go either. I’d grab an M8 first.

BeeMuu

Is it must to trade out S Mayes and Georgiades this week with such high BE’s? Thinking of parking the cash for finals rather than upgrading right now.

BeeMuu

Oh 12 trades left right now

The Ranger

Plenty of trades, why wouldn’t you paint the fence now?

Luke Parisot

Luke Ryan or Zac Williams? Or alternatively, Luke Parker?

The Ranger

Parker

Trades

Goodbye Yeo and McPherson… hello Cottrell & Fyfe…well, welcome back Fyfe!
Hoping NicNat is going to play!

Axel

Hey Guys, with Rampe out, does this impact Lloyd you think? I just traded Sicily for Lloyd and wanted to know your thoughts! Thanks.

derek

don’t think so. It will affect Mills more.

tommyc99

Best rookie this week?

Russty_

FOOT?

Marshall

Jack Steele or Parker or someone else

Demons Deelight

Parker is very cheap but wont go up much 9 tons is impressive

Russty_

Steele’s been down on usual points last 2 weeks but could bounce back this week and get ya 130

Shake n Bake

Preuss gone.

Demons Deelight

Very minor Shake Will be dropped anyway but if max is not fit will play ref. Melbourne fitness guru Burgo

Shake n Bake

Hope he gets up but really doesn’t look like max will get up. Hasn’t really trained at all yet.

Corey

Witherden or Zac Williams to replace Sicily I have Haynes, Ridley, Stewart, Docherty in my defence so far, don’t think I can get the top guys this year to get to full premium so looking at discount guys so I can afford the top forwards for my last 2 upgrades

Russty_

Williams over Witherden I reckon, more reliable.

Corey

That’s not too many GWS players? because I already have Haynes, Whitfield and Congilio

Any relation to Ron Jeremy? 😉

Demons Deelight

Rotten ronny or Grinter would fix him up

Jack

Hi Community, need to trade out Simpson and Georgiades this week. I currently have draper as my R2, and will be looking to get rid of him in a couple of rounds so cash is good. How do these options rank?

  1. Petracca and Foot + bank in about 130k
  2. Fyfe and Foot + bank in 200k
  3. Oliver and Foot + bank in 55k
  4. Gaff and Foot + bank in 300k
  5. Gaff and Simpkin (think Gaff has been hitting his form the past couple of weeks, and with Yeo out, think at his price it presents great value as does Simpkin) Will be able to still field 20 players in the dreaded r15 bye still
Russty_

Hey Jack, Gaff and Simpkin should get you the most points, if they were in form but Gaff isn’t showing what he did in the first 4 games, and Simpkin has become a bit of a yoyo, depends on what you’re going for I guess, rank or league wins, getting one of the guns, Oliver ,Fyfe and Petracca is ideal but foot could just be another dud rookie for all we know.

Thought I’d chuck this in as a reminder, and because no one else is posting shit anyhoo…
Here’s how the rest of the season will play out in KFC SuperCoach:
R12 — normal week: best 22, max 3 trades
R13 — normal week: best 22, max 2 trades
R14 — bye round: best 18, max 3 trades + H2H finals week 1
R15 — bye round: best 18, max 3 trades + H2H week off
R16 — bye round: best 18, max 3 trades + H2H finals week 2
R17 — normal week: best 22, max 2 trades + H2H finals week 3
R18 — normal week: best 22, max 2 trades + H2H Grand Final

TRIGGA HAPPY

Thanks Rust.
I see SC has now updated the bye button to include 14-16 so you can see exactly who is playing and more importantly who isnt.

Hot diggity dogs in a world of pain rd 15. 🙉 lucky it’s a week off!

The Ranger

How many premos have you got out Trigga?
I have 1out in Rd14, 5 out in Rd15 and 2 out in Rd16

Hey Lek,Patch or whoever’s calling the shots… is there any way of adjusting the settings so that when we click on “newest comments”, that all comments are included in that?…including original comments and the replies to those comments.
At the moment, clicking on “newest comments” only includes the original comments and not the replies to those comments, therefore giving a false representation as to what are actually the “newest comments”.
Not meaning to be critical, just asking a general question for the good of all.
We’re all trying to navigate this new platform together…also, maybe there needs to be some instructions as to how to become a member of wordpress and gravatar to add photos etc for those of us who don’t have a clue…so there aren’t so many ‘guests’ without pics and preferably more members hooked up to the new format. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Good relevant points Russty,all of which I relate to. JESS bought up a point regarding round 15,She talks about culling BONT/MACRAE for two Parker/Gaff types this makes sense to me 2 doggies x3 =780 +4x M8 rookie 240 TOTAL1020 as against 2 GAFFS X4 =800 PLUS a third GAFF ( Rookie +250 from sale of 2 dogs)x4 TOTAL1200 Makes loads of sense or have I made a gaff somewhere NDD

For anyone with Dan Houston and Peter Ladhams, they may be about to receive bans for breaching Covid protocols, so keep an eye on that.

dontblushbaby

Houston in 18% of teams, Ladhams only 4%

Russty_

Oh wonderful, I have Ladhams, wonder how long the dufus pair will get?

K.Sinny

7k off being able to go Sicily to Stewart and Simpson to Fyfe. What’s everyone’s thoughts on Sic to Haynes and Simpson to either Gaff or Boak? Leaning towards Gaff as he’s had his bye but worried about him getting rested.

tbone19

Gday KSinny. Thats annoying about the first trade, that would have been massive. I love taking a risk when it comes to an F6 or D6 so may I suggest Sicily down to Cerra and then Simpson up to Fyfe? I really like Cerra as a POD playing a great role and already having a bye. I think you lose more points going to a Gaff or Boak instead of Fyfe compared to Stewart vs Cerra. Cheers mate

derek

with Sicily out for the rest of the year, who gets a bump in scoring?

Scrimshaw or Day? both under $300k

derek

Straton is cheap

Demons Deelight

Fyfe has de bore coming up then 3 games with 4 and 5 days break will get rested

Dan

I don’t mind Sic to Haynes. Although Haynes’ be is high he should be fairly reliable.

David C

Houston about to be suspended. And only 2 trades this week!

Derek

Already have Sicily and maybe NicNat to deal with.

Maybe Rivers gets a game to cover Houston this week.

Depends how many weeks he misses

derek

i have Sicily and Houston in all my draft teams.

Russty_

I’ve got Ladhams in all my teams and in Fantasy lol

Demons Deelight

Rivers is a real chance Should not have been culled Played mid in the collingwood scratchie and was one of the best playing outside mid could take Tomlinson’s spot

JugHead

I’m amazed how many in the AFL are running into problems following the covid restrictions.
The state governments are trying to get everyone to do the right thing and the least the AFL (as a whole) can do is not undermine the message.
I wouln’t blame one of the state governments for saying……..
“OK guys, how many times do we have to go over this? It’s clear you are not listening to us. Pack up your sh*t and go home”

Russty_

Agree Jugs, it’s just blatant selfishness and a real let down for their teams, fans and Supercoach players!..Bloody Ladhams

dontblushbaby

Only tomorrow nights team have been released, I thought they would all be out tonight ?

Kat

So did I. This makes things so hard to do any planning when you don’t know who is playing or not and which rookies especially have been selected. Surely theres no need to do this when a round is being played over a few days. I miss the old days

Pman

I thought that given it’s a “normal” round that all teams would be listed as is always the case. Pretty crap way to treat the fans if they are going to stick with naming teams 24 hours before the game. Not happy!

AuroraBorealis

As did I DBB, really makes things difficult

To get to full premo on field I need +1 in def, +1 in mid, +2 in fwd. Got a fair bit of cash in the bank from Gawn down to nic Nat last week. So have a few options and I should be ok for rd15 byes. What are your thoughts?

A) Simpson & Aarts -> Foot & Hawkins. Leaves me with $395k for double upgrade next week.

B) Simpson & Aarts -> Foot & Fyfe.

C) Simpson & Noble -> Z.Williams & Fyfe. Leaves me with $71k.

Option C sounds good but wouldnt have much cash generation with current bench rookies. Leaning towards option A as I’ll be ok for rd15 byes and I like Foot’s job security. Geelong have a very easy run home and I can see Hawkins putting up some big scores (also has a low breakeven). Fyfe breakeven at 102 so he should go up in price but would still be gettable for me next week
