Friday Footy Frenzy – Round 17

Published by Damo on

Are we getting a Grand Final preview tonight, or will we see who’s been pretending? Both of these clubs will be there at the business end of the season, but this game will give us an idea as to who’s the real deal.

Congratulations to Zach Tuohy who plays his 200th game and to Jack Graham who plays game #50.

CAPTAINS

It’s no secret that Richmond give up a lot of points to opposition midfielders. So Patrick Dangerfield, Mitch Duncan and even Cam Guthrie, if you have him, should all come under serious consideration. Dangerfield has scored 149, 102 and 132 in his past 3 games against the Tigers. Dustin Martin is always someone to consider if you want to put the armband on a Tiger.

No new faces in this game!

Enjoy the game, Community! Should be a cracking contest.

Mitch is Back

Coniglio dropped, Angus Brayshaw injured. Got 1053k to spend on 2 midfielders.

Thinking Macrae & Serong, but willing to listen to all options.

Already have – Neale, Titch, Boak, Duncan, Cripps & Viney

Derek

Dunkley and BCrouch with some money left over

ST1974

I am thinking of trading Rivers to Greaves (if named) and Riccardi. Which one out of Walters, Simpkin, Powell-Pepper, Jack Martin or Wilkes (Free). I know that Simpkin and Martin are under injury clouds so who is the best option if they are not named. Unfortunately, I don’t have enough cash for Robbie Gray or Bailey Smith.

Russty_

Acres is going alright, last 2 weeks he’s tonned up..risky but they all are at that price.

The Ranger

Williams and Simpkins named

Jess

Ranked top 100 but are screwed. What is my best option to at least be competitive?

Have J martin and Riccardi. Riccardi will miss, and Jack will most likely miss as well. Bench cover in woodcock and skinner wont play. One trade left so I’m facing a donut. Guess i just have to wait to see if martin is named or not, but if not my best bet would be to trade him to Wingard, as I’ll miss Acres due to game times. I’m stuffed arent a I?

Keenbutclueless

Hi Jess. With Worpel and O’Meara out, Wingards mid time might be ok. He is really hot and cold from a SC perspective, so it could be spectacularly good or spectacularly bad. He also strikes me as the sort of player that can go missing when the stakes are high, but can blow away nothing games. Good luck with whichever way you go Jess

Keenbutclueless

The other option if you can do it is Riccardi to Rozee, if you can do it. Then just hope Martin plays. You will need to do by tomorrow if you go that option. At least if Martin does play you avoid a donut.

Last option will be Riccardi to a Hail Mary like a Motlop or Levi Casboult. Levi tonned up last week, so it either means he’s in form, or the lightening has already struck! If you could reach a Jeremy Cameron that might be another one. He is a fallen premium. Shown nothing all year, but not beyond the realms of possibilities that he explodes before the finals.

Derek

Put up your whole team

Russty_

Yeah it’s easier to troubleshoot when viewing the entire lineup.

Russty_

Three quarters, 11 points for Geelong…what’s happened to footy?…lol

DEESNUTSRBIG

The coaches killed it. The AFL Rules/Competition Committee cut up the body parts.2 games : 26 goals, 47 behinds between WC-Stk-Rich-Geel.

demondelights

Wonder if we will ever see a 100 goal kicker. again? the game is not the same. NDD

Russty_

Maybe the game is too fast?…maybe the ball needs to be half a kilo heavier?

demondelights

19th and 20th ?

Soothsayer

It’s cheap cover for my last rookie spot in the miss. I’m thinking crouch, Wingardium leveaosa or acres. Can acres go big against the Roos, will chad be digging in as a midfielder and will crouch be back? Who’s got the crystal ball?

Russty_

I’d go Acres…but I have also gone crap this year hah

JohnDJ59

Good advice Russty.

Derek

I’m looking at brining in BCrouch for Rankine this week.

Derek

BCrouch looking for a new club next year, has a lot of motivation to play well.

Had a couple of games back to build up his TOG.

tophawk

I like Brad Crouch a lot Derek. He is a tough hard hombre who will be playing elsewhere next year. He will play the house down in the last two rounds in order to position himself for a juicy contract with another club. At 392K he is a steal! I needed a mid/fwd swing man to compliment my team structures so went LDU as a bit of a POD option. LDU playing in my forward line.Cheers. TH

I rate Acres as a bit of a left field selection but Chadley should be getting a bit more mid time since the Worpedo went down. I think I’d go Wingard for a little extra safety, Acres if you want a pod.

David

Chad loves finishing the season in hot form. Sucks in plenty of coaches for the start of the next SC season
2019 last 4 98,91,112,62 ave 91- season ave 76
2018 last 5 114,105,97,80,110 ave 101- season ave 89
2017 last 5 157,59,97,92,92 ave 99- season ave 93
2016 last-ish 4 106,61,100,64, ave 83 -season ave 81 His actual last game was a 32 but did hammy in 2nd qrtr
2015 last 4 102,122,104,60 ave 97 – season ave 98
2014 last 5 (including 3 finals) 100,106,115,122,52 ave 99 – season ave 80. Note the 52 was in the preliminary final and about 40 of those points came in the final qrtr when he won the game for Port.

Soothsayer

That’s a great analysis David, I’m just worried about copping that 52 or 62. From Chad.

tophawk

Have you considered Luke Davies-Uniacke? Mid/Fwd flexible swingman who scored 129 SC last week. North has no midfield, Simpkin is running around on one leg and he is priced at $382K. He went at number 4 in the 2017 draft and after a slow start to his career now appears to be hitting his straps and starting to break out. I bought him in this week. Cheers. TH

Russty_

Condolences if you had the C on Danger this week.

Derek

Just having him is bad enough

tophawk

Or even the VC Russty. That 66 was putrid! I dont have him so I will just stick with the usual combo with Macrae going into Neale. Nice and solid. Go well this week mate. Have a few wins! Cheers. TH

Russty_

You too mate…yeah I think Danger was stuck fwd a lot last night, also he made plenty of stuff ups.

David

This game showed exactly why supercoach is is 95% luck and 5% footy knowledge.
Cats were smashed from the first minute to the last second yet they won the supercoach points battle by 80.
I’ll be giving SC the boot next year and looking for a game that rewards ‘Coaches’ who understand footy.

Russty_

I think when it comes to scoring a Fantasy Footy comp…maybe just cold hard facts should count, the ’emotional’ crap is super-subjective, game influence and all that, Cats were terrible for the most part so shouldn’t have deserved the higher scores, also scaling is a joke cause it takes earned points away from deserving players for the sake of even-ness.

FearTheBeard

A Brayshaw or R Gray lads?

tophawk

There are 2 A Brayshaws AFL. Scratch the Angus variety as he is cooked for the year. I like the Andrew variety. Robbie Gray scores fluctuate too wildly and does not play enough midfield for my liking. Andrew Brayshaw spends hardcore time in the guts so its him for me. Cheers. TH

tophawk

Morning community! Have any coaches considered Luke Davies-Uniacke? MID/FWD flexible swingman who scored 129 SC last week. North has no midfield, Simpkin is running around on one leg and he is priced at $392K. He went at number 4 in the 2017 draft and after a slow start to his career now appears to be hitting his straps and starting to break out. All this chatter about Wingard, Rozee, Acres, etc who have similar price points why not run with a POD option instead? I bought LDU in this week. Go well son. Cheers. TH

dontblushbaby

Acres is another one I’m looking at, same price as LDU

JohnDJ59

I decided to get Acres, but the game had already started.

JohnDJ59

I’m looking at all four and can’t decide on one just yet.

Kat

Any news on Docherty. Makes a big difference to trades this week

AuroraBorealis

Yeah i am nervously awaiting an answer Kat, have to decide before 2pm

Tophawk

You are not wrong there! I have Rivers playing at D6 and Tobe Watson on the bench with the E to cover for the Doc. Very lucky Watson got named this week.

AuroraBorealis

I have no cover for docherty, but i don’t want to miss out on my other trades this week an pull the trigger early to find out that he is named after all.
Does anybody have a source for Docherty having an injury problem? I’ve just seen i talked about by you guys

dontblushbaby

He’s not listed as an injury on their website, they only talk about Martin being a test, but who knows, anyones guess ?

AuroraBorealis

Yeah i checked that as well DBB, might just have to assume he’s healthy unless i hear otherwise before 2:10pm

AuroraBorealis

An update, Teague was asked about Docherty’s injury and whether he’ll play in a press conference and he said that ‘he’s not sure at this stage’, will decide based on the training session today. But Teague said that he spoke to Docherty and Docherty ‘was adamant he’ll play’
So hopefully Docherty knows his body well, fingers crossed

dontblushbaby

Thanks AB
