Steele is in for me next week for Wehr as my final upgrade. Though I’m confused now what to do with Preuss. I can go Jackson but with Gawn coming back i’m concerned how bad it will drop him. Part thinks surely he gets more minutes which helps his core then the other side is me thinking nah back to 60.

I thought I worked it out and was moving English up and moving Bont down from mids, moving Short down from D’s and getting Whitfield though now I looked and I can’t swing English up as game started so I’m cooked for next week which will cost another trade unless Wehr goes huge.

James

I say do it Lek, we’ve both been on this Preuss rollercoaster too long. Using my last boost to bring in either Heeney or Jackson (another rollercoaster) for him

Lazza

I’ve had to use 2 trades to save another donut this week… carried Butters, English and Preuss over last week… now screwed. I think all 3 will be gone by next week if they don’t front up. Have bought in Witts. Though I may reverse that and bring in Nank.

Rick Grimes

Sucks when your m9 gets 140. Grrrr

Derek

Daicos seems a lot to have on the bench.

Derek

Good lucky everyone

Put the VC on Libba tonight

Lazza

👏 👏 👏 👏 👏

ST1974

Traded Khamis to D’Ambrossio to make some cash. Now I am looking to trade Butters and there is two ways I can do it.

1) Move him from to the midfield (via Heeney DPP) and bring in one of Steele, Hewett, Keys or Walsh

2) Move him from midfield to the defence (via Houston DPP) and bring in one of Lloyd, Whitfield, Hewett, Saad or Dawson.

I have not left myself much cash to play with and I still need to upgrade Solgio and Wehr as well as Rosas (trades permitting in the coming weeks.

Appreciate any thoughts or advice on which is the best way to go.

Derek

What does your whole team look like?

FearTheBeard

Gday Derek,

Long time no see.

Rekt myself this week. English, Preuess, Clarke, Stewart ruined me lol.

FINALLY figured out a plan and realized I can’t do it cause I need to move English up to trade pruess and game locked lol.

Dunno how I make it happen now. Steele was my last upgrade with him in for Wehr next week. So unless Pruess gets a game next week I need to get him gone.

Was gonna move English up, Bont down. Bring in Steele. Wehr for Whitfield though the price rise Whitfield has this week (expected) will be the 20kish i’ll be short now LOL unless Wehr goes huge.

ST1974

Hi Derek. My team is as follows:
B: Crisp, Short, Ridley, Sicily, Houston, Wehr, Massimo, Skinner.
M: MacRae, Neale, Oliver, Cripps, Butters, Petracca, Sinclair, Soligio, Hamilton, Owens, Long
Ruck: Witts, English, Young
Forwards: Heeney, Parker, Dunkley, Hawkins, Brodie, Coniglio, Rosas, Callow.

ST1974

I am leaning towards trading Butters to Steele and keeping Soligio, Wehr and Rosas on the bench for a further week and re-assess next week. The only other option would be to trade Butters to Whitfield and Soligio to Duncan which I would have just enough money for but would require me to use one of my boost trades (only two left). However, I think it would be more important to have Steele in terms of scoring potential and hope that Soligio, Wehr and Rosas can increase in value a little bit more this round.

Shake n bake

Jackson could be late out

Chris

I am canvassing SC for more trades…who’s with me? Another two ‘soldiers’ down with Hammy’s and my trades situation is diabolical, got Rich in for Daniel, 45 minutes later ‘ping’ another trade burnt. All I can assume is that I must have been really, really bad in a previous life…

Corey

Preuss to Jackson leaves me with 6 trades left and only Daicos at D6 to upgrade left or hold Preuss this week and continue to ride the rollercoaster

Derek

Will you have a donut if you hold Preuss?

Corey

Yeah I will but I’m ranked nowhere (27k)

Pieman

Thoughts on mills VC? Think he can go big against essondon

Rick Grimes

Like it. All Swan assets worth a look. I had considered Parker for vc but went Macrae. Oops.

Eli

What a crappy week! Using Young as cover for English – no probs there BUT….gotta trade out Stewart – and get either Ambrosio or Bazzo in so will downgrade either Carroll or G. Clarke – so some reshuffling required – it’s just that I can’t decide which premo to replace Stewart with!!! My choices are: Laird, Dawson or Walsh. All guns…..Thinking just go weith the absolute best so Laird but then again, my backline WAS complete until Tommy got suspended so Dawson looking good to keep it complete. Daicos can go either MID or DEF either way and Dawson great last 5 gsame avge too. Walsh? Higher average than Dawson with recent form last week……decisions!

Rick Grimes

Daicos D6 and Laird mids.

Kiran

I’ve gone a little brave with my choices and brought in Angus Brayshaw and Peter Wright (couldn’t work out a way to afford both Nankervis and Brayshaw).

Finally given up on Touk Miller, which means he’ll probably go for 180…

David

This is agony, what’s the hold up on the LJ news, this is like waiting for a girl who promised a bit of hanky panky after the first date, only to find out she maybe did her knee on a four poster bed at a mates house and may be available for you.

Rick Grimes

Using your scenario, sounds like this bird didn’t even get in the plane to visit you. Not looking good for any Jackson nooky.

Derek

JR SURVIVIOR – CHAMPIONS

This week sees the start of the JR Survivor Champion of Champions Division.

This is the BIG ONE.

Each week there will be 3 ELIMINATIONS.

Same rules as before, the 3 lowest scores of the round will be eliminated unless you are holding immunity from the previous week. If a team uses their immunity, the 4th lowest score will then be eliminated.

In case of a tie, the team with the WORST overall rank will be eliminated.

FyfeIsLyf has IMMUNITY this week based on an outstanding score of 2630 last week (this is what teams who are ranked 49th overall do!)

good luck

thanks fellas

Ryan

Thanks Derek for your hard work in organising!! I’ve somehow managing to avoid all the carnage the past 2 weeks but I’ll happily accept the immunity! Good luck all.

Derek

That is a very nice team. I’m assuming you started with Witts.

Are you holding Stewart?

Can’t see any upgrades needed (except what you do with Stewart)

Ryan

Thanks Derek. I didn’t actually, brought him in round 10 last minute when we heard preuss was out.

He’s turned into hall. Despite hanging onto English all year, my finest trade may have been English into liber last week which also saved me fielding Clarke last week!

Derek

MID-SEASON DRAFT

A quick reminder to the newbies to Draft regarding bench players.

1) The players on the bench will have their score automatically subbed onto the field if one of the starting players don’t play. The bench player does NOT have to be the same position.

2) Only the lowest scoring player on the bench is used. Last week FBI had Andrews sitting on the bench with a lazy 117, unfortunately for FBI Fiorini scored 16 and was the automatic sub.

3) Only ONE sub is allowed per week. FBI had Parish & Gawn on field but only had the one player sub on, leaving only 13 players vs 14.

This becomes tricky for Captain loop holing, FBI tried to loop Bont’s VC score last week, but ended up getting Fiorini’s 16 as well. Suggestion is to not worry about C loop.

Shake n bake

That’s why l went straight out with Neale as capt.

Shake n bake

Jackson out

TRIGGA HAPPY

Apparently wasn’t on plane to Adelaide. Knee issue 🤔

Shake n bake

He wasn’t on the plane.

Tophawk

Adelaide is only a 55 minute hop across from Melbourne. He might have stayed back one night to sleep in his own bed. Play cat and mouse with the crows…… Whats to say he is not on the 10.40 am flight this morning to Adelaide? He will be there at 11.30 and join his team mates at the ground at lunchtime! He has still not been “officially ruled out”. We gotta live in hope!!

Kat

Nope he is out on AFL and SC Website now. Would have been nice if he had played though

Rick Grimes

Gee that’s a kick in the guts for Jackson owners. The SC Gods are a fickle bunch of….

Timboaus

Official over Supercoach this year, Rucks have been an absolute nightmare!!!

Nathan

Ive used 7 trades on the rucks this year, and it’s still a disaster! Are the days of set-and-forget over?

Rick Grimes

I think so, Nathan. In some ways it’s exciting new territory. But it is also a bit punishing.

Shake n bake

I think next year we need 2 emg on the ruck line

Chris

I reckon next year there will be a massive number of teams that will have 4 x Ruc/Fwd selections, fill the two Ruck emergency slots with cheapest possible and have a loaded forwards bench and just ‘shuffle the deck’ as required on a needs basis. It would seem that the day of the locked & loaded Ruck might be over, the new Ruc/Fwd hybrid is the way of the future.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Ruck me! 🤬
Last 5 weeks.
Brought in Gawn. Injured next week.
Replaced with English. Concussion out next 2 weeks.
Brought in Pruess. Injured next week
Brought in Jackson. Injured next week.
English still on bench.
Don’t think I can do it again! Just have to munch on a 🍩 this week.. sigh…

Derek

You forgot about Teakle

TRIGGA HAPPY

I didn’t bring in teakle -phew

Kat

I am contemplating a donut this week as well. Was patting myself on the back last week having Jackson up my sleeve to cover my ruck outs but disaster this week now. Just not sure that there is anyone I really want to trade in . Considering just waiting for Gawn or English next week as was my plan

JugHead

Similar here. Not sure I want to avoid a donut by bringing in a tall spud that I will need another trade to kick out again later. I have loops set up all over the place to cover this situation on other lines, but not in the ruck due to all the injuries.

Kat

Gutsy win by the Saints

DEESNUTSRBIG

Anyone bringing in Jase Burgoyne 117k MID/DEF over Massimo 102k DEF only this week?
What is his job security like?
Is Rory Thompson getting a game next week?

Guest123

Baker or Hall at D6?
Have 1 trade left after this and Wehr as only bench cover. If I trade in Baker then I can swing him forward via Skinner and cover fwd and mid(swing Coniglio and Hamilton) while playing Wehr in Def. If I trade in Hall, I only have Def cover.

Chris

Who are you trading out to get one of Baker or Hall? Leaving just one trade means you have to be super confident that their scoring will be high for the remainder of the season and that they will not get injured (yes you Mr Hall). Leaving one trade up your sleeve is really, really optimistic, I’d say if you can try and make the most of what you’ve got right now until maybe just 3 rounds left or you could be munching on donuts for many weeks to come…

Guest123

Trading Stewart

Chris

In that case do you already have Dawson (assuming you could afford him) as I think he’s the best, scores well and seems very durable.

Guest123

I already own him

Russty_

So glad I brought Hall in this week, should’ve known better.

Kat

That’s unlucky. He didn’t even last a quarter. Hope you had Oliver as C to at least make up for it a bit

Russty_

I did, will probably lose half my league games now or more, self inflicted! 🙂

Fearthebeard

I did the same thing ffs. How bad?

Russty_

Apparently it’s a quad.

Lazza

🫣 🙈🙉

Tophawk

That hurts mate. Hall has done a quad this time. Last time it was a hammy. He was a great selection as he had all the pozzies in the first few minutes. Just very unlucky. TH is still bumbling away with Luke Mc Donald and Jed Anderson.

Fearthebeard

So quad will be a month plus… sigh. I dunno who I’ll go to. I can’t take a trick lately. Every week I’m losing injuries and still carrying pruess. English benched. Sigh.

I haven’t seen a year like this.

Russty_

I had that year last year, couldn’t get ahead because of injuries.

Russty_

I could’ve gotten Dawson too when I decided to punt Preuss, but cheapskated it with Hall.

Fearthebeard

Me to. I was getting Steele and hoping pruess was back next game and set.

Now I’ll just either get Dawson or wait for Stewart to undo a foolish trade.

Russty_

Maybe I’ll get Nick Naicos back in?…lol, he’s one rookie I could’ve hung onto.

Fearthebeard

Gold Coast though ? What’s his $ at lol. Who you thinking going? I’m so torn and so annoyed. 4 weeks in a row my trades ruined for final spot. Bailey smith. Gawn. Stewart. Hall….(Will holding English and pruess)

Russty_

Well I was hoping Hall was it for my backline and then only Nick Martin to upgrade, but I think I’m just gonna go Hall to Dawson and maybe hold martin for a bit, or go Martin to Daicos maybe…with dpp
Daicos’s last 4 games, Hawks, Dees, Gws Suns…all good scores, he’s in ripping form.
He’s 440 will probs be 460 after this week

Fearthebeard

What’s his price?

Fearthebeard

Who would you lock in. Steele or Dawson?

Russty_

Dawson

harryhoudinis

You didn’t follow your own advice! You told me earlier in the week to avoid Hall and I did… Went Dawson 👍 cheers for that, damn don’t you hate the wasted trade and short term hit

Russty_

I know right I’m an idiot, was actually pretty keen on Baker, I’d already done my 2 trades and then saw that Preuss didn’t get named so had to reverse them. Then I thought ahh Baker might get role changed around, Hall is back and has a high ceiling and can save some money. It was right at that point I should’ve just gone straight to Dawson.
It will screw with my League wins and rank this week, but I’ll get Dawson next week even though he’ll be over 600k.

harryhoudinis

If it was early in the season I probably would have gone Hall too but it’s a great reminder, late in the season and low on trades, go the safer higher percentage trades

Russty_

Absolutely!

John

I brought him in in AF, I basically use AF to get my dodgy trades out of my system before knuckling down to serious SC trades! (Which don’t always work anyway!)

harryhoudinis

Boy it’s tough when you take 135 VC and your opponents hammer you (Oliver) in their choice. I did think he’d likely go big but hard to not take the 135?

Russty_

It’s still not that much of a difference mate, it was the right call.

Kat

I would have done the same thing if I had Neale as my VC. It was the right thing to do. Oliver going big was no guarantee, those of us who had him as C got lucky

Derek

I took Libba’s 144, but knew Oliver would beat it.

John

The right call was to take Neales 135 mate, earlier in the season I would of taken it in a heart beat but I didn’t because my cash league opponent had Macrae as VC so his only option was to give Clarry a crack so I went with him to basically block any blinder that he may of had.

Kat

Just when I have some great scores from Oliver (C), Petracca, Miller etc Witts and Crisp have a bad week. Would be great if everyone in my team could play well on the same weekend or at least play as expected

harryhoudinis

Same. Was going great guns but Jackson out and Witts and Crisp spudding up has ruined it

Derek

Heeney was my only real spud

Although I still have Toby, Butler (cover for English) and Wehr (cover for Daniel to go. Plus Sicily & Jelly.

Sunday is always tough, it might be even tougher this week.

Derek

And Darcy, Brodie & Short. Going to be a big day

Tophawk

Huge day coming up. Going to enjoy that donut given to me from Luke Jackson at morning tea first. Then have Sicily, Short, A Brayshaw, Tom Green, Coniglio, M Rioli, and Brodie to come. Surely Rioli will outscore Mc Comb today against the Eagles. A great day means 2500+, an OK day means 2400, and a crap day means 2300. Lets see what the SC gods dish up today. TH

Derek

I don’t like donuts so I traded Jackson to Hickey who gave me in underwhelming 80

TRIGGA HAPPY

Looks like a crap day eh hawk

TRIGGA HAPPY

That’s supercoach kat.
Get all your ducks in a row and that is strut territory.
I like you haven’t had a strut this year. 🙄

Derek

Nick Daicos. Welcome

John

Those using him to cover Stewart will be very happy. Personally I’ll be keeping him at D6 for quite a while yet.

Derek

I didn’t have Stewart and Daicos is my D6. I was looking at upgrading to Stewart this week before he was suspended

He can stay a bit longer now. By time Stewart is back there won’t be much of a price difference

JugHead

Same here. I think Daicos is my D6 for the rest of the season now. The dpp makes him ok cover for the mids as well.

Lazza

Keep D’Ambrosio’s 83 or put Dan Rioli (Av 82) on field …🤔… think I’ll hang with Massimo

JugHead

I would too. Rioli MIGHT get a few more, but unlikely to be enough to be worth the risk imo.

Kat

I’d take DAmbrosia’s score Doubt RIoli would score that much more. Points in the bank

Russty_

Aaaand of course he has his highest score of the year lol, gotta love those Supercoach Gods.

JugHead

Yep. They like to take the p1ss. I’ve been killing it the last two weeks………but my season was blown out of the water before that.

Lazza

Yep, bought Bont and Witts this week … can’t take a trick …

Kat

Haha typical SC. Its why I usually don’t comment on the what should I do posts, hopefully Lazza didn’t read my comment

Lazza

I did, but I’d already chosen the 83… now my plan to upgrade Rioli is up in the air … Tigers have a reasonable run home … might hang on and use him as a floater to cover the inevitable fwd/def outs …

Lazza

Both the Riolis stitched me up .. could have kept McComb’s 40 too , got Maurice’s 29 instead .. 🙄

Westy

Missed some of the carnage. Didn’t have Stewart, but English was on the pine.
Ended up with a 2618 courtesy of having the C on Clarry. The high score this week was 2875!

Derek

No Stewart for me, but I did have Daniel, English & Jackson to deal with.

Took Libba’s VC score even though I knew Oliver would beat it.

A few dud scores, Heeney, Toby and Butler combined for 166, and a few 80’s from Ridley, Short & Hickey.

Some massive scores from Oliver, Petracca, Miller, Merrett, Sicily, Daicos, Darcy, got me to seasons best 2655. Keep me a live in a few leagues.

Derek

How can I forget Neil, Sinclair and Jelly

Rick Grimes

Screw you Dusty. I’ve had you for weeks and you’ve been rubbish. You finally get your act together and after a half of decent footy you sook off with a tight hammy. Now you’re having a holiday for a week just to screw me even further.
Dunno if I should just trade him or hold. I have no decent bench cover unless I waste a trade getting in a bloke like Brown from GWS and pray he can clunk a few. Or I get in a Duncan, Moore, Taranto type.

Oh Dusty, why can’t I quit you!

Derek

I remember the time I just couldn’t stop picking Cyril in my team.
