Monday Footy Frenzy – Round 16

Published by Barron Von Crow on

Just the one card going tonight with Melbourne taking on the Fremantle Dockers at Cazalay’s Stadium up in Cairns. Big changes in store for the Demons with 7 changes made with Angus Brayshaw, Charlie Spargo, James Harmes, Josh Wagner, Mitch Brown, Nathan Jones and Oscar McDonald out with Aaron vandenBerg, Braydon Preuss, Jayden Hunt, Kysaiah Pickett, Michael Hibberd, Oskar Baker and Toby Bedford in while the Dockers are unchanged from last week.

HIGH BREAKEVENS

Luke Ryan 180

Christian Petracca 158

Andrew Brayshaw 143

Michael Walters 137

Matt Taberner 132

Clayton Oliver 127

James Aish 121

LOW BREAKEVENS

Minairo Frederick – 6

Trent Rivers 7

Toby Bedford 12

Adam Tomlinson 30

Braydon Preuss 37

CAPTAINS

Max Gawn is the main target in this one, scoring 150 last week and running with a 3 round average of 130.7. Nat Fyfe scored 132 last week against the Tigers, though is coming off disappointing scores against Sydney and GWS. Still a viable option if he’s given the midfield minutes. Luke Ryan has cooled off a bit over the last fortnight with scores of 67 and 104 over the last two weeks, but in his previous month before that had scores of 131, 162 and 142, so he can always go off if he gets into it heavily. Clayton Oliver is also a chance with a score of 130 last week and a 3 round average of 121.3. If you’be got Gawn he’d be my pick this week.

NEW FACES

Oskar Baker makes his debut for the season, but is pricey at $261K. Outside of that there’s no new debuts though Toby Bedford is back for the Demons after only playing 1 game for the season, he’s a FWD costing $123,900. We also have Minairo Frederick up forward for the Dockers costing $160,900. He scored just the 33 last week with a season average of just 33.6. Down back we also Joel Smith, Trent Rivers and Stephen Hill for under $250K, Rivers or Hill seems like the options there.

Just got Andrew Brayshaw last night too WAIT a sec Andrew?

Russty_

I saw that too Neil before he changed it lol, a bit confusing having 2 x A.Brayshaws

Lekdog

Too many Brayshaw’s, just like there used to be too many Selwood’s!

Russty_

Soon there’ll be no Selwoods, sad, I remember when Joel was a fresh faced 19 year old rookie getting his head split open every week.

Shake n bake

Williams out

Steeeve

That might answer my question above. Oppo has Jelly and Williams out. Maybe I play it safe with Macrae’s 117.

Derek

they might make a last minute trade, I know I would (and leave it as late as possible to stuff you around)

Lekdog

I have to trade him…bugger

tophawk

Damn!! Any idea the nature of the injury and the amount of time he is out for? Probably just have to switch him for a replacement premo.

Russty_

Archilles, could be awhile who knows.

Derek

Let’s me put Rivers on field

JohnDJ59

I might have to sub out Wicks or Schoenberg to get his score.

Steeeve

Hi all, wondering if I should C Gawn or take Macrae’s 117?
Opponent and I are neck and neck. Projected scores put us only 6 points apart. He has VC on Gawn. Not sure whether to roll the dice. Must win final.
My remaining unique players are: Clarry, Schoenberg, Parker and Martin. Oppo’s are Petracca, Walters and Williams.

Russty_

Hi Steeeve, depends on the final 18 whose score get used, does your team look stronger now with him having Kelly and Williams out? what are his his lowest scoring player’s scores..and yours?… If you’re sure you’ll win easily then maybe take Macrae’s score.

Lekdog

I think you outscore him with Macrae even if Gawn goes 150

tommyc99

Best defender to complete my defense? Anticpating ill have 520k to spend. Been eyeing off haynes but treating it as if he will be out of reach.
Current defense is: Lloyd, Laird, Stewart, Doch, Williams.

Stuck on whether to play it safe with the likes of Ridley/maynard or go for a POD.
Blicavs is a really interesting one. 7 tons since round 4 with a low score of 74 (only score below 80). Is his versatility a worry? Role can change at any minute. Am very surprised with the 2% ownership from a player with a 97.9 average.

Caleb daniel is a nice pick, with a good finish. But already got 3 dogs would 4 be too many?

Cerra is an interesting POD. Little but more inconsistent compared to Blicavs but ceiling is higher.

Any help much appreciated!

Russty_

Has anything changed since Williams is out Tommy? Lukosius is in hot form but could drop an 80 on ya or a 130, Tarrant is averaging 99 last 3 rounds, Ridley’s been a bit of a freakin yoyo, either 75 or 130 lol makes it hard to choose…maybe a real smokey in Daniel Rich?…ok I may be losing my mind now lol

tommyc99

Hey Russty! Nah nothings changed for me. If i didnt waste my third trade this week i probably would have traded him straight up to Haynes but thats the beauty of these 24hr team news.
Adam Cerra killed it again last night and will be around 500k. But Freo play the dogs in round 18 and would 6 players in the same game be overkill? North next round is a very juicy fixture though!
I think ive narrowed it down to Ridley, Blicavs, saad and short. Who would you pick from those 4?

JohnDJ59

Ridley, but Haynes would have been better.

AuroraBorealis

Does Touk Miller go to Neale this week? I am in a very close one against Neil and i can decide to take Gawn or Neale’s score as C (already used VC). Really struggling to weigh this one up.

JohnDJ59

Max

JohnDJ59

At the moment, near the end of the 3Q, you both might be going with Neale as your C.

AuroraBorealis

I think i’m glad i stayed on Neale. 130 is one of those ballpark figures that you’re never sure of. You should take it, but you’re always tempted

JohnDJ59

I have the VC on Max and the C on Lloyd. Max scored 132, my cut off is 130, Lloyd could go 10-15 pts more. I think I’ll take it.

Russty_

I’d take Gawn’s score AB, even if Neale scores 150, it’s still only 18 points difference overall.
Neale could also score 85.

AuroraBorealis

Hey mate, I already used my VC on Steele (before i traded Gawn in), so i had to choose to go the C on either Him or Neale before the game, ended up staying on Neale.
It worked out ok for my matchup, Gawn scored to a level that Neil has to take, without going too large. If Neale gets 150+ the extra 20 points should win me my game. Will be a very close one

JohnDJ59

Hey AB, I just had a look at your team, any thought about Lloyd for C. Hasn’t gone below 126 in the last 7 games.

Nick

HELP !!!! Hail Mary needed. Season going down gurggler. Looking for a last minute miracle. Who is going to score best this week out of:
1. Jarrod Lyons
2. Matt Crouch

My opponent has neither and Am looking for high ceiling to pull offa miracle. May even make them the captain and hope for one out of the box…

Nick

FearTheBeard

What is the situation with Z Williams? I am on the rest for the finals next week. Need to know wtf he’s doing?

TRIGGA HAPPY

On afl site:

Zac Williams (Achilles soreness)

GWS site:

Zac with his Achilles just hasn’t responded after the two short breaks,” Cameron said.

I’ve got you twice this week Trigg

TRIGGA HAPPY

Two easy wins mate, like you’ve got the bye or the week off 🤣

Shake n bake

Never easy

Derek

Hey Shake, Cogs on your bench?

Shake n bake

Either him or Cripps!! Had no choice had Wingard as E and Bradford on field. Then out of the blue Bradford gets named!! So l had to put Riccardi on Bradford back on the pine switch Whitfield in the mids.

tommyc99

The fact cameron said “its unlikely he plays this week” suggests its not too bad. But GWS history says im worried. I needed to use my 3rd trade in order to not have any left over come end of season so i did a 40k downgrade, if i hadnt of done that i probably would have traded him this week. Since youve got the week off and sounds as tho not caring too much for rank id hold but he will be getting punted from my side next week if he misses again

FearTheBeard

thanks guys. sounds like he should get up next week for me hipefully :@

JohnDJ59

Glad I still have my POD Jack Viney, after most people traded him out to upgrade their mid lines, he just might win me a few semi final games this round.

holty01

Nice hold John

JohnDJ59

Yes, 137 very happy with that, just under Danger, in my top scores for the round so far. I was always looking at him as a M8, as it turn’s out he will end up being my M7. With Wicks, Schoenberg, Rivers, sharing M8.

Russty_

Beats the hell out of his last 2 scores John, very timely mate, hope it gets you over the line 🙂

JohnDJ59

So do I Russty, none of my opponents have Viney, so looking good. I just hope what happened in my QT finals, doesn’t this time, where my lowest scores were a lot higher than theirs and in a best 22 I would have won two of my four loses that round. Currently my lowest four on field scores are 73, 74, 80, 82. While some of theirs are 24, 48, 55, 66.

Dees tanking again

Russty_

hehe, is this your bait for trying to catch a Neilfish?…to be fair it was pretty bloody wet here, like God’s flood for Noah’s Ark if you believe in all that kinda crap 😉

JohnDJ59

Petracca played well in his 100th, 140 SC pts, shame they couldn’t get a win for him, but bad kicking for goal is bad football. At least I don’t have to worry about how we might go in the finals now.

holty01

Hi all. Been a while. My phone shat itself so haven’t been on. How has everyone been?

JohnDJ59

Going well Holty, funny, I was just thinking yesterday that we hadn’t seen you around for a while. SC wise, fairly happy with how things are panning out, ranked 9,621 and currently in 5 semi finals, with a prelim already booked in Elite.

holty01

Nice work mate. I’m sitting 9800 at present. Falling away last 2 weeks however. Simply had the wrong premos in my team this year with bad onfield rookie decisions. Draper is my R2 and may have to hold him there unfortunately.

JohnDJ59

Hey Holty any rank in the top 10k is good, not as good as last season for you, but still good. I always set being in the top 10k rankings as something I want to achieve in a season, along with making the finals in a few leagues. I have Draper as a back up at R3, not sure I’d want to be depending on him at R2, but that said, you would have had stronger lines in the rest of your team because of it.

Russty_

Hi Holty, good to see you back mate, I thought you’d fallen off the face of the earth or got covid or something, I’m having a shithouse year Supercoach-wise lol, personally I’m just about to move to 6 beautiful acres in a magic town..going from a 400 square block to a 24000 square, and can’t wait.
Hope you’re all good mate.

JohnDJ59

That sounds like a nice move Russty.

holty01

Hell mate, that is a big change. Are you becoming a farmer or something? Why such the big change? Where abouts you moving to?

Russty_

Just never have lived on land mate and it’s a bit more inland from the coast, away from the ratrace more..not becoming a farmer although we will be growing our own food, has it’s own dam and creek/waterway too so very peaceful 🙂

TRIGGA HAPPY

Wow quite a shift and spread rust.
If that’s what you want good on ya!
Best of luck. 😉

Russty_

Cheers Trig..I’ll be able to wear gumboots and get a mullet now lol

TRIGGA HAPPY

Welcome back holt.
Like most was wondering what had happened.
Rusty had you peggedcas a covid case. Good to see that’s not the case.
Might be time to upgrade the ol brick phone from the 1980’s! 😉
SC is stuffed this year couldn’t kerp up with the daily changes and late outs. Got a shell of a team compared to what I wanted, no cash gen also sucked.

To pass the time in Lock Down (which has just been extended-thanks Dan 🤦‍♂️) I’ve taken to writing parodies.
Me and a mate we’re bored so formed a you tube channel called The ISOlators and a releasing one a week. It’s a bit of fun to pass the time.

Our latest is on the latest podcast check it out if you have the means 😂

Only a couple more weeks then the Happy Ending final series will have to kick off again….

Derek

hey Holty. there has been so much footy, i’ve actually stopped watching games on tele. i definitely can’t watch the hawks anymore.

SC gave us a heap more trades, but somehow i’m down to my last 2 and still not at full premium. My D6 and R2 have been a weekly revolving door.

Big Maxy

Time for Goodwin to go.
Also I think last few years the Dees team selection has been laughable.
Tropical storm through Cairns and they play Pruess.
Season on the line and they play Baker, Bedford, Hunt, Smith, Neal Bullen lol.

cash_cows

Captain choice.
Whitfield vs crows or Lyons vs gcs

JohnDJ59

Do you have Lloyd.
