Thoughts on Luke Parker

MAYhem

I’m also thinking seriously about bringing him in. Think he can go pretty close to top 6 Fwds from here on in.

TommyC99

Also keen to hear peoples thoughts. He just has weird games where his TOG is putrid. I am warming to him this week mainly because of his price tag. 475k to pay for what should be a top 6-10 fwd is great value. I will say though that i am concerned that as the season wears on, he will increasingly take a step back to allow the young kids to take on greater responsibility. And while his ceiling means his average will be great, i envision weeks where he will make us tear our hair outs with sub 80 scores.

holty01

Love him as a forward especially with Papley coming back soon should mean more time in the middle

Matty C

Strongly considering this week

derek

He will be coming in to my team this week. $473k is a good price for what he can do.

He has been spending time in the forward line. Last week he spent the first quarter in the forward line when the hawks started really well and he was on 7pts at quarter time. He went into the guts in the second quarter and started to get the ball and scored well.

as a forward he will be SC relevant

Kenna

Door think he’ll play more midfield minutes from here on

Shake n bake

trades I had planned go out the window a tad. Just now have to wait till the teams drop.

Greendale

Preuss and Hayes going to carry me through for a while I’m thinking. I’ll be using my Grundy money to bolster the midfield.

harryhoudinis

Agreed. A bit risky but I’m doing the same

Lazza

Another 3 RUCs out this week .. stocks are getting slim… thats 13 on the injury list..

Daz

Last week my ruc’s were Grundy, English and StKildas Hayes. Niiiiiice.

TommyC99

Best mid under 580k this week? Already got touk and Jkelly in my mids!

Russty_

Tracca, Cripps, Green but I don’t think he’ll last, Sinclair averaging 115….probs need to see your whole midfield Tommy. Do you have Hewett?

TommyC99

Hey russty!
my current midfield is: Neale, Macrae, Oliver, Touk, Jkelly.
Hewett is my D1.

Russty_

Get Crippa in mate, he’s still cheap as Chips too 🙂

Westy

Ruck travails –
OUT Grundy, Hayes
IN Hayes (the other one), Keays (via DPP movements).
Current ruck line – Preuss, Hayes, (Dixon) with Xerri available via DPP. (Nervous much!)
Will this change between now and Thursday? Probably.

Russty_

Living on the edge there Westy, hope it works for ya

SchittSangers

I like it. This week Xerri has Sivagni & TDK so will probably get his season high and his breakeven is only 30, then Darcy which might be a problem followed by Hayes in round 9. Hayes has whoever the saints can glue back together, then stef then xerri.
After that English is back and you can afford him by painting the fence with Hayes & Xerri

Bucks

Xerri out

Streaka

Grundy to Hayes = $$$$
Hayes (Saints) to Cripps most likely and bank 180k.
Marshall and Preuss R1/R2 with Hayes R3

holty01

Looking forward to this. Haven’t had time to listen to a podcast for a few weeks. May have something to do with me falling off the pace this last month. Another average week for me. 4 in a row now so hopefully this will give me some inspiration to move back up the ranks

Russty_

You’re still going alright Holty, I’m sure the Holt will bounce back because, you’re the HOLT 🙂

demonsdelight

Any thoughts on your R12 squad mate ??

Russty_

Not a lot mate, try to get close to 18 playing. I see the injuries have started kicking in, I think by this time last year I’d virtually given up on the season I had so many injuries haha

demonsdelight

yes just try to get as close as possible to 18

Russty_

Hey mate do me a favour will you…go into the club and give Jackson a kick up the ass so he’ll score a bit better!
2 60’s in a row is a bit hard to take.

demonsdelight

He was my most in and out player preseason but just can’t see him being relevant while Gawn plays Ladhams has overtaken him

Russty_

Think he’s on his last chance with me this week, fingers crossed he does something good.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

He’s out now, so are you holding or trading him Russty. I might have to trade, not much cover in my fwd line.

Russty_

I’m thinking probably trade John but I wouldn’t have to, but I’d have Dekoning and Rosas on field so my score would suffer this week.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I’m torn between trading him and saving a trade. I’m going to have to accept I won’t win many games this round if I hold him. That said, he hasn’t been doing all that great the last two rounds and I’m up against Holty again after just getting over the line last round, thanks to Grundy’s last quarter.

Russty_

The way the SC gods normally work is, we trade him out and his next game will be 120+ lol. I’m feeling the same way John, not really sure which way to go

Russty_

Also John, Jackson was only a hit and hope really, by trading him in we probably knew we’d have to trade him back out again at some stage. It was misleading how much rucking he did in the pre-season. Gawn wants to be there in the middle for most of the time which means Jacko’s basically a tall forward.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

It was a bit of an experiment, there was a chance he would be a bit up and down like last year. I just thought the downs were going to be more 75-85 instead of the 60-68 from the last two rounds.He is handy with his fwd/ruck swing and will be playing most weeks. Only thing is, as you said, he will only score well when they think Max needs a rest and we would be looking at 120+ scores then, but how many times will that happen. I think I’ll trade him, then watch him go big next week.

Russty_

Yep if you get a season keeper for him, it lessens the pain of burning another trade, not sure if you have Xerri but he’s out for up to 4 weeks

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I don’t have Xerri Russty, he was the one I missed out on. Took him out before round one when I wasn’t sure about his roll. I saw on twitter yesterday that he was going to miss, just didn’t know how long for.

Kat

He only had 76% ground time this week and last week his time on the ground was in the 60’s so that hasn’t helped. If he hasn’t got an injury he will be fresh when he gets a good run at it. Im still hoping he will be my F6 and be a backup ruck at the end of the year

Russty_

I’m just a bit worried Gawn hogs too much of the ruck work Kat, Jackson isn’t getting the run at it like he did in the pre-season, as mostly a fwd, he doesn’t do enough.

SchittSangers

It doesn’t matter which line you score your points on. Hayes scores would be welcome from a playing rookie on any other line so play him onfield and use the Grundy cash to turn another playing rookie on a different line into a premo

SchittSangers

He’s probably more reliable than Rachele or O’Driscoll and equally as reliable as Daicos and, with all of the R/F’s still playing and available it’s not that difficult to have insurance

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I’m bringing S.Hayes in for Grundy as my R2.

SchittSangers

I did the same

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Dixon.

SchittSangers

Dixon breakeven -24

Jack

Hey team need a opinion on whether to bring in Jack Steele or Touk?

Last edited 28 days ago by Jack
Kat

I would pick Steele for his form at the moment. Touk has been a bit quiet of late but is a good bargain at the moment if he gets back to his best scoring like last year.

Shake n bake

Rowell has a bit to do with Touk slight drop

Lock key

Not even… it’s that he’s playing a run with role now at the moment. the coach is clearing experimenting with the midfield.

Nick

Hi All,

What is everyone’s thoughts on Witherden?
Needing a POD in my defence to climb the rankings…..

SchittSangers

I put him in and then reversed it when I heard McGovern was on his way back

Nick

why is that? He did score over 100 twice when they both played ( 63, 106,127)

SchittSangers

I know but I’m not sure if the 127 was influenced by Mcgovern injury and eagles are cursed this year

SchittSangers

With him instead of Jacko my predicted score was 2500+
He has a great ceiling and has pumped out some massive scores in the past but he has also thrown up just as many spud games which is why he’s never averaged over 84 in a season where he’s played more than 10 games.
He’s going great this year and he could easily play every game for the rest of the year, have his best supercoach year ever and finish as a top 3 defender but I don’t feel as safe with him as I do with Keays or Dunkley

TommyC99

I love his role this year, hurn has given him the reigns. 570k is a lot to pay for a guy who isn’t proven. I do think the role is there for him though and should prove to be a very nice POD for you

Nick

cheers Tommy

SchittSangers

Like many I have to replace Grundy& St Hayes this week if I bring in Pt Hayes to R3 & Preuss to R2 and then roll the ruck dice and trade out Jacko for Dunkley my predicted score is 2450 and I’ll have 422k in the bank. Weirdly if I don’t trade and leave Grundy & Hayes on the bench and play Durdin the predicted is 2376 but that would be silly.
Another option is to trade Grundy for Pt Hayes (R3) putting Xerri @ R2 and trade St Hayes for Keays that gives a predicted of 2433. If I also use a boost I could trade out O’Driscoll for
Short, Houston, Rich @ D6, = Daicos M8 & Xerri R2
McCluggage, Jelly, Taranto,@M8 = Daicos D6 & Xerri R2
Tex, Degoey, Treloar, Parker @F6 = Daicos D6 – Brodie M8 & Xerri R2
or Ladhams, Preuss or O’[email protected] R2 = Daicos D6 – Brodie M8 & Xerri F6

Or I could use the boost to Swap Jacko for anybody

I am genuinely confused and on this 3rd trade, Parker or Short looks tasty for O’driscoll but Dunkley looks equally tasty for Jacko

SchittSangers

I’m leaning towards short atmo

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Dunkley or Parker for me.

demonsdelight

Ladhams could be interesting I wanted him last week but got cruelled by English .Daics is maxed out so has to go I just can’t work out whether to have Preuss or Hayes onfield Neither appeal as any where near keepers One will become English In your position surely it has to be Grundy and St Hayes to P Hayes and Preuss who has improved his around ground play Goob luck David

SchittSangers

I agree that Preuss & Hayes seem like the obvious move but now that I’ve missed Preuss’ major increase I am conscious of his durability and propensity to smash people and get a holiday. Also if I get Preuss & Hayes I close the door on the R/F swing. Ladhams has a good ceiling and the desirable DPP but I doubt that he’s a keeper when the Swans are fully fit but he will make 50k this week and has the DPP feature which is nice in a season of Ruck carnage. Currently I have traded him in but will probably reverse that later today.
Yep Daicos is about maxed for cash making but he is a bit more reliable than O’Driscoll with an ave of 85 and I need him atmo.
As per usual it will get down to 15 minutes before the Friday game and I’ll do a panic trade

demonsdelight

thought hard about closing the dpp ruck door myself particularly with Hickey returning in 3 weeks but Ladhams will probably gain a few extra weeks to ease Hickey’s load The R 12 bye keeps Daics in preuss could become English if he falters,doubt he will loose his spot or top dog role you probably need a conservative approach .The byes will sort out the grain from chaff

SchittSangers

Thank you for your insights, the worst mistake that you can make in this game is to not listen to other opinions

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Word has it that Xerri could be in line for a rest.

SchittSangers

I hope not I only have De Koning and Durdin as fwd bench cover my 2500 predicted drops tp 2467 if I put De Koning on field for Xerri

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

De Koning is alright for a 50-65 score and it will only be for one week.

derek

Looking at 3 trades this week.

Hayes to Hayes
Grundy to Parker (via Dixon)
JHF to Cripps

I could wait a week for Cripps as his BE is 125, but it has been hurting not having him so far this year.

I was $900 short to go Rachelle to Cripps

Derek

Might leave Cripps to next week, Rachelle to Rosas for cash this week

Russty_

Was gonna say I like those 3 trades, bet Rachele goes big this week, he’s due for a good one.

derek

thanks fellas

demonsdelight

If only I could get out of Divvy 5 to escape shake NDD

derek

Div 5 is the HOT group this year. The elimination cut off is always one of the highest

Nifty

Me too NDD..

Russty_

You had your chance round 4 mate but you snuck back in lol

David C

Rumour Jackson could be one of 3 dees out with covid (Zero Hanger).

derek

NDD, do you know what melbourne player has Covid?

demonsdelight

jacko bedford are 2

demonsdelight

the club is throwing a few names up who the 3rd player is and Tracca looked proppy Oliver and Pickett are being touted as the third

demonsdelight

Sparrow jacko and Pickerr are the 3 dees players

demonsdelight

Viney and Lever will come back and Macdonald to help Gawn who will go huge with no Jacko

SchittSangers

Maybe I’ll just jump on Gawn instead of Keays

SchittSangers

Or is that a crazy move with still 2 more days for another dozen demons to be sidelined like the eagles were?

demonsdelight

Riak vs Reward Gawn should go huge and they have a soft draw now. Viney back will help gawn more so than missing Kossy also Harmes will cover Sparrow.I have gone Gawn instead of Clarry

SchittSangers

I’m a bit nervous about this covid thing having multiple weeks impact on the Dees like it has on the eagles. This is not the week to be closing out the R/F dpp swing
Grundy Hayes Jacko out
Hayes Keays Dunkley in

The Ranger

Anyone tempted by De Koning now that Pittonet is out?

SchittSangers

He did well against Darcy and OK against Witts but he does get injured often and I don’t have the gumption to to spend more on him than I would on Preuss. He will be a gun player but I don’t think it will happen this year

Keenbutclueless

Had a quick look at Cameron as well with Grundy out. But it never got past a quick look

The Ranger

I have English, Hayes and Grundy. Think I might hold English and bring in Preuss and Port Hayes which leaves 466K in the kitty.
Trade JHF as well or hold for next week? Trading would give me 788K to spend so I can get anyone.

Rick Grimes

Was looking at a cheap Tracca. But not sure it’s a good time to be adding to my Demon stocks. Covid could rip through them like it has with Eagles.

SchittSangers

There are only 23 players in the competition that are averaging over 114 and 12 of them have less than 20% ownership, 7 of them less than 5% and, 5 of them less than 1% ownership

It seems strange to me that average scores across the board are so high but more than half of the top 23 averaging players are in less than 20% of teams.

Just had a look at my PODS (players with less than 20% ownership) and I have 4 averaging more than 114. Witts, Docherty, Sinclair and Keays. I started Witts, got Doch after week1, Sinclair after week 3 and Keays today.
I now have 13 averaging more than 114 and I’ll be targeting those with less than 5% ownership for my next upgrades

The Ranger

Good plan Schitts. Crazy that there’s so many PODs.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

In light of Jackson missing a week, I will be using my boost this week. R2 Grundy to S.Hayes, F2 Jackson to Parker, F6 J.Hayes to M5 Cripps/ F6 Rosas.

Derek

Do you have to get rid of Jackson? Or was he was going anyway?

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Jackson was on the chopping block after his last two games. However I am now thinking about keeping him, due to the amount of trades that I’ve already used and just take the points hit.

Shake n bake

Teams seem to be using a fair few trades. Just think of the bye rds. Think ahead! Think who ur bringing in. Good luck.

Derek

What is a good plan? Load up on Round 14 premiums? Or have an even spread?

Shake n bake

I have the least amount of players missing the 1st bye. So until then only Hayes for Hayes this week. l will not bring n a player from that bye rd. So hopefully won’t have to trade rd 12. Then l can go nuts rd 13 & 14 even if l do a sideways trade I’ll do it. Trust your rookies until then like JHF Daicos Rachele Dekoning these players you know will play. Will be very important. Also Jackson out my plans may have changed with who l trade Grundy to.

Derek

I thought the plan is to not have many r12 players but trade into them once they had their bye

Shake n bake

I will have, you can say the opposite only 7 maybe 8 missing.

demonsdelight

Derek Are you interested in Tich for Doc in jungle ?

Derek

I thought I already have Titch? And Doc?

Russty_

Maybe Neil was dreaming that he owned Titch 🙂

demonsdelight

It’s a win win deal tich/doc

demonsdelight

I have him in Daft not jungle

derek

I don’t have Doch in Daft. but more than happy to take Titch off your hands.

what would you like. Seb Ross is on the table.

Pendles & Seb Ross?

Greene & Seb Ross?

demonsdelight

Was it planned that way Shake or did it just happen? I planned mine and went the opposite, just seems a waste of trades Round 12 I have the min 18 and one or two more in 13 and 14 .Not for me to criticise but is there a reason ?

Shake n bake

Planned. I’ll try to keep my trades to a very minimum trust my rookies. Hopefully make as many trades rd 13 and 14 as l need.

Derek

We can make 4 trades a week during the byes this year

Shake n bake

That’s right

SchittSangers

YeeHaa I can sideways 4 rnd 12 prems to rnd 13 prems and then sideways them back. That’ll give me15 prems plus 5 averaging 85+ for rnd 12 and 17-19 prems for the other 2 depending on upgrades.

Mid-price mastery was definitely the strategy to choose your team this year

The Ranger

It definitely was eh?
I used to plan for nine trades during the byes. Three downs Rd12, then six up if possible over the next two rds. Way off the pace this year and had to trade nearly every week so I’ll just hobble thru with whatever suits at the time

demonsdelight

That initial squad is so important Ranger. Those 200k players really came into it

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I’m trying for an even spread.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Thanks for the advise Shake, I just went from three trades to two for this round.

Shake n bake

Even if you count the numbers you think, I should have playing say rd 12 l can guarantee 2-4 won’t play. Rookies, susp, Covid, inj.

SchittSangers

Not if you’re lucky shake. If you’re lucky none of your premo players will be injured or have covid during the byes and your 80 ave rookies will all pump out tons.
I’m planning to be lucky

SchittSangers

After using 3 this week I only have 23 left BUT I already have 16 keepers plus Coniglio, Gresham, Martin, Daicos, O’Driscoll & Xerri and some average bench rookies.
I’ll probably use another 3 or 4 trades before the byes to get English back, grab a another FWD Premo and also cashout a couple of rookies, then 9 trades during the byes to fill the 6 available premo spots then just hope that 10 trades is enough to last the rest of the year

Shake n bake

The 5 extra trades definitely help. With a bit of luck u might make it. Good luck.

SchittSangers

Currently have 18 for rnd 12 but 5 are on my bench atmo including McCartin (I might sideways 3 prems for rnd 13 bye prems). 20 for rnd 13 including 3 bench players and 21 round 14 including 6 bench players I’ll upgrade a couple of those bench guys.
I’m feeling rather lucky 🙂

Derek

Shake, do you like any of the trade offers in Jungleland Draft?

Shake n bake

I’ll give the Whitfield one some thought. Might do that one.

derek

you can have the Chad instead of Thomas

Shake n bake

Xerri out

Russty_

Wow they just keep coming, maybe up to 4 weeks with a hot spot in his foot.

SchittSangers

That’s not the best news for the day.

Russty_

That’s gotta be a record doesn’t it…that many rucks going out in one week!?

demonsdelight

Is Majak worth considering getting a wee bit bare

SchittSangers

OMG! I’d probably get that ex-dog playing as a defender for Blues before Majak

demonsdelight

I wonder how tall Russty is? A rookie chance mid year maybe

SchittSangers

Heard a whisper that Mummy is nominating

Russty_

I’m only 6ft 1″ mate, not even tall enough for Orange boy 😉

demonsdelight

a blues ruck of yesteryear was 5 foot 10 and a champion

SchittSangers

Grundy, Darcy, Pittonet, Hayes,Jackson, Xerri that’s only 33.3% of teams losing a ruck this week I’m sure we can push a bit harder and get to 50% before the weekend.
Covid can still get another eagle, Stef could have an age related illness and Preuss might have a clumsiness relapse and break something.
Xerri missing multiple weeks means that I’ll to trade him out instead of Jacko and just absorb the form & $ drop

derek

Big Boy and Reeves at the hawks

derek

Lycett, Nic Nat, Hickey, Ceglar, Marshall was struggling last week

SchittSangers

I meant just this weeks outs Derek, but yeah rucks are a fragile species this year. Silvagni probably deserves to be on the list as well

demonsdelight

Big Maxy would love to ruck against sosos

SchittSangers

I hope he’s living in an airtight bubble atmo

derek

max will have a nice day against Lynch & Nash.

heading down to Melbourne to watch the game. Go every year with the Dee supporting Victorian relatives. It has been such a great game the last 10 years to go to.

Lazza

Add Marshall to the list .. I have 4 non-playing RUC/FWDs .. 🙄

Russty_

Yikes mate, what a difference a week makes, damage control this week, hope for a half decent score at the end of the round.

Russty_

Hey Derek I read Ned Long might be close to debuting, Ward ain’t exactly setting the world on fire, do you think he’ll get dropped soon?
I’ve had Long from the start as a loop but wouldn’t mind if he gets in there and starts earning some money.

derek

I thought Long was a big chance to get a game round 1. Thought he had done enough to push Brockman out of the team. Turned out, Brockman wasn’t in the team either.

Ward is in Sam’s best 22, but he might get a week’s rest soon but he is good enough to have every opportunity to play most of the year.

I brought in Long last week when Rosas was injured. I agree Long will play very soon and when he does he will go good.

The hawks have Bramble to come back in the next month, he will play on the wing and will push Maginness out if Shiels hasn’t already. I think Conner Downie is a fair way off getting a game after ankle surgery and a few hamstring issues.

Russty_

Cheers mate, hope he’s not too far away

Kat

Long is being named on the extended bench a fair bit lately so I’m guessing he will get his turn to shine soon

Derek

No Long, No Ward and No Maginness.

Bramble back early pushed Msginness out

Callow will be worth watching close. Luke Breust nominated him in a preseason interview to be the Hawks ‘breakout’ player this year. Ready Gunston replacement

Russty_

Looks like Long’s becoming the next Gould, I’ll see how Cark goes the next 2 weeks, hopefully he grabs his chance.

derek

heard Hewett is in doubt

SchittSangers

and covid in the kennel 🙁

SchittSangers

We might get a look at Jack Carroll, I reckon he could go well against that Kangas midfield

Daz

Wow, I need the panic room NOW. I had English, Grundy, Hayes, Dixon and Xerri. I traded English last week for S Hayes. SC can be cruel…..

derek

guess this is what the extra trades are for.

Daz

Yes there handy. Don’t think anyone would trade premo’s out for Covid unless a final. This week emphasises the need to be careful with trades

Derek

I’ve still got 32

Russty_

What trades you doing this week Derek, surely 3?

Derek

Hayes to Hayes

Grundy to Parker (via Dixon) and play Hayes at R2 for a couple of weeks

My 3rd trade would have been Rachelle to Cripps, but I’m $900 short.

Tossing up to either trade JHF to Cripps or just go for cash gen and trade Ward or Rachelle to Rosas

I’ll probably go for Rosas and get Cripps next week as his BE is 125

Russty_

I’m not sure Rosas gets a game this week have you heard anything? There’s Dempsey you could go for also, he’s named on field. Good to see Clark getting a run this week, could be a nice option to jump on in the next few.

Derek

Rosas is on the extended bench

Ward to Rosas will give me $370k in bank. If do my maths and hope Rachelle and JHF don’t have stinkers and lose cash I can get Touk & Cripps next week

Russty_

Yeah but how do you know Rosas will play?, he’s listed 7th on the emergency list.

Kat

Don’t know about you Derek, but I seem to always have a great plan for the next week and then something comes up, like the ruck injuries this week and you end up having to do something completely different so if it were me, I would do your trade this week while you can. Up to you though but that is what always seems to happen to me

derek

good point

Tommo

Look to make two upgrades this week with some uncertainty in my head with byes upcoming (in particular round 12)

Boak or Oliver
And
Hewett, Sinclair, Witherden or Docherty

SchittSangers

Oliver will go 150+ this week I don’t think Boak will
Hewett best value for money and safest (atmo)

Derek

Oliver & Hewett

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Oliver and any of the defenders.

Lazza

Anyone else having issues with SC App Subscriber features… I’ve lost them all .. don’t know why ..

Lazza

Solved

Lazza

Sicily, Sinclair or Docherty?

Russty_

Doch is scoring like an uber mid mate so if money is no object…..all 3 are good this year though. I have Sinclair and Sicily no Doch though.

I’m now thinking that I’ll leave the DEF line till later and bring in Steele now .. which leaves me with only 1 rookie on field in the middle (Martin at M8), though I’ll have to carry Rachele on the bench a bit longer. Was planning to exit him this week, but having to replace 3 rucks forces my hand.

Russty_

Did you get the latest?…Hewett to miss.

Lazza

😳 , have now .. just hit the reverse button .. again .. 😠

Sinclair has most risk. Unknown what will happen once Jones, Billings & Clark are back.

SchittSangers

You probably need all 3. Sinclair and Doch are both still low ownership. Sinclair is thriving in his new role and the team is doing well with him there so I can’t see Ratten making any changes that might jeopardize that synergy. His average is only 3 less than Docherty’s and it’s 8 higher than Sicilys

Bare with me here it’s a bit too comprehend….

Option 1:
OUT: JHayes, xerri & Grundy
IN: parker, Oliver & SHayes.
Bank: 130k
Onfield Martin F6 & JHF M8

Option 2:
OUT: JHF, xerri and Grundy
IN: Oliver, Steele & SHayes
Bank: 17k
Onfield F5 & F6 is Martin and Rachele

Derek

I like option 1

JHayes has to go before JHF

Parker is so cheap, he is a Steele (see my humour added there)

SchittSangers

Can’t beat Oliver & Steele for season long consistency

BILLY

What’s everyones thoughts on Connor Rozee? His last 6 quarters of footy his CBAs have skyrocketed and so has his scoring! He obviously has huge scoring potential but does he have a consistent mid role? Will he just be another Zak Butters who can pump out 130+ but also produce <70 on any particular week?

SchittSangers

He looks like great value if you want to take a risk or don’t have the cash for a proven consistent scorer. Probably a much better option than JHF and not a lot more expensive

derek

for $75k more you get Parker

Shake n bake

Hewett out

Russty_

This is turning into a fun week!

Shake n bake

Decisions decisions!!

SchittSangers

He’s the most owned Premo defender at 62.9% and the next highest ownership is Sicily at 37.9% I’d say that most teams in top 100,000 probably have him so it’s not really a big loss if you have cover. I have O’Driscoll to cover him.
The up side is that Jack Carrol gets a go and from what I have seen of him he will do better at the top level than he does at VFL level he looks like a very very good footballer and Voss will give him more than 1 game so O’Brien and Newnes might be on the block next week if Jack plays to his potential. He’s a 123k mid at the perfect time for downgrading to along with Clark, I might be able to get rid of McDonald & Durdin next week

Shake n bake

My weakest line is def. With no option to go With Mccartin now Hewett who are possibly both only one week out & Skinner not available. What plans l had just need a rethink.

SchittSangers

Can you move Daicos back and maybe get pendles?

Shake n bake

Can move Daicos back then I would play Rachele as a mid. Might go alright at home against gws

derek

Hewett is just one week and is a hold.

Kat

All I can say is thank goodness for those new DDP status players were given the other week. I have had to put any playing bench players on the field this week with only an E for the mids and ruck. No backup for my forwards or defense but it would have been worse without some DPP players. 6 no starters and a few injured traded out

harryhoudinis

Boy this round is fun already and it hasn’t started. With Hewett out, hit the reverse changes button for the 3rd time this round. Daicos now gets a reprieve and I have to stick with Whitfield as too many injuries to contend with. Out this week is Grundy, Xerri and Dow meaning I still have J Hayes to go next week. I was always going to hold JHF as the 39 goes out of his cycle next week so even if he loses a little this week, think he’ll bounce back and still has more to make.

Only have 23 available this week even after those 3 trades so good news is plenty of loophole options. Bad news is more late outs will be a killer. Good luck to everyone this week- we’ll need it!
