Around the Grounds – Round 18

Published by Barron Von Crow on

Round 18 is done and Round 19 is coming up, the last week before we hit Supercoach Finals starting. Now is the time to start finalising our teams for our big push towards the Finals and we look to perhaps conserve our last few trades to make sure we have the ability to cover ourselves from any further injuries. As usual we’ll go through the what’s what of Round 18, followed by the best trade in options and rookies for the week. So let’s get going.

Victoria

Collingwood

The Pies kept their win streak going and got the W in Scott Pendlebury’s 350th with a 91-86 win over Adelaide. Ashley Johnson (FWD, $123,900, BE -18) made his AFL debut and had 11 disposals, 2 marks, 4 tackles and kicked 2.1 for 67 SCPoints. Nick Daicos (DEF/MID, $555,200, BE 63) practically did what he wanted out there and had 40 disposals, 3 marks, 5 tackles, 6 clangers and 3 goals for a massive 163 SCPoints. We said previously he’d hold on as a suitable D6 towards the end of the year, but he’s pushed well past that at this point. Josh Carmichael (MID/FWD, $102,400, BE -50) had 24 disposals (all kicks), 3 marks, 8 tackles, 6 clearances, 1 goal and 10 clangers for 56 SCPoints. Solid game apart from his disposal efficiency, which was a bit messy. Trey Ruscoe (DEF, $263,200, BE 51) had 13 disposals for 52 SCPoints, Jack Ginnivan (FWD, $278,300, BE 59) had 13 disposals, 2 marks, 4 tackles and kicked 1.1 for 58 SCPoints and Beau McCreery (FWD, $289,500, BE 18) had 12 disposals, 7 tackles, 2 marks and kicked 1.1 for 72 SCPoints.

Collingwood’s VFL side fought off a 3rd quarter fightback from Port Melbourne to end up with a 108-75 win over the Boroughs. tTyler Brown (MID/FWD, $229,600) had 34 disposals, 7 tackles and 10 clearances, Arlo Draper (MID, $117,300) had 21 disposals, 8 marks and 2 tackles with 2 behinds, Finlay Macrae (MID, $206,800) had 19 disposals, 4 tackles and 4 clearances and Cooper Murley (MID/FWD, $117,300) kicked 1 goal with 18 disposals, 3 marks and 3 tackles.

Carlton

Carlton was shut down by the Cats and had an 85-55 loss to Geelong. Jesse Motlop (FWD, $222,500, BE 11) had 11 disposals, 3 marks, 5 tackles and a goal for 59 SCPoints, Corey Durdin (FWD, $252,700, BE 51) had 9 disposals, 4 marks and 4 clangers for 15 SCPoints and Will Hayes (MID/FWD, $123,900, BE -13) had 23 disposals, 5 marks and 6 clangers for 74 SCPoints. Hayes has been suspended for 2 weeks, so won’t feature in the short term. Josh Honey (FWD, $203,600, BE 52) was the unused sub in this game.

Carlton managed to reverse their fortunes in the VFL, defeating Geelong 70-59. Mitch McGovern (FWD, $256,000) returned and had 17 disposals, 4 marks and 2 tackles with 1 goal, Sam Durdin (DEF, $123,900) had 10 disposals, 4 marks and 3 tackles and Domanic Akuei (DEF/RUC, $102,400) had 8 disposals, 4 marks and 1 goal.

Essendon

Essendon moved out of the basement with their win over the Gold Coast, moving to 14th on the ladder with their 103-55 defeat of the Suns. Nic Martin (MID/FWD, $375,500, BE 70) had 25 disposals, 5 marks and kicked 2.1 for 97 SCPoints, Harrison Jones (FWD, $255,300, BE 48) had 8 disposals, 4 marks and 2 goals for 58 SCPoints, Ben Hobbs (MID/FWD, $321,600, BE 74) also scored 58 SCPoints from his 15 disposals, 6 tackles and 2 behinds and Brandon Zerk-Thatcher (DEF, $341,800, BE 25) had 12 disposals, 5 marks and 5 rebound 50’s for 67 SCPoints.

Essendon had a close game with Gold Coast in the VFL but lost 81-78. Massimo D’Ambrosio (DEF, $195,000) kicked a goal with 15 disposals (12 handballs), 3 tackles and 3 clearances as he was tried out as a forward.

Geelong

Geelong remains on top of the AFL ladder after their 85-55 win over Carlton. Sam De Koning (DEF/FWD, $377,700, BE 78) had 11 disposals, 5 marks, 4 rebound 50’s and 7 intercepts for 71 SCPoints and Tyson Stengle (FWD, $396,900, BE 67) had 84 SCPoints from 17 disposals, 2 marks, 3 tackles and 1.1.

In the VFL match up, Geelong couldn’t get the win against Carlton, losing 70-59. Nick Stevens (MID, $123,900) had 36 disposals, 9 marks and 3 tackles, Sam Simpson (FWD, $262,700) had 24 disposals, 7 marks and 1 tackle, Oliver Dempsey (FWD, $102,400) finished with 18 disposals, 6 marks and kicked 1.2 and Shannon Neale (FWD, $123,900) booted 4 goals from 10 disposals and 4 marks.

Hawthorn

The Hawks made it 2 in a row after their 102-77 win over West Coast. Josh Ward (MID, $280,000, BE 9) had a big game with a team high 34 disposals, along with 7 marks, 5 tackles, 6 clearances and 6 clangers to score 99 SCPoints. His DE wasn’t too bad at 70.6% but had two thirds split on uncontested to contested possessions, which may have dropped his score slightly. Josh Morris (FWD, $118,300, BE 11) had 11 disposals and 4 clangers for 23 SCPoints, James Blanck (DEF, $170,500, BE -5) had 7 disposals, 1 mark and 1 tackle for 42 SCPoints, Finn Maginness (MID/FWD, $235,400, BE 2) had 21 disposals, 6 marks and 2 behinds for his 66 SCPoints while Denver Grainer-Barras (DEF, $245,600, BE 54) scored 50 SCPoints from 11 disposals and 3 marks and lastly, Connor Macdonald (MID/FWD, $259,400, BE 25) had 13 disposals, 5 marks, 7 tackles and 2.1 for 71 SCPoints.

Emerson Jeka (FWD, $171,500) had 22 disposals and 6 marks, Jai Serong (MID/FWD, $117,300) had 15 disposals, 2 marks, 3 tackles and kicked 1.1 and Jackson Callow (FWD, $134,000) finished with 11 disposals, 6 marks and 2 hitouts with 2 behinds.

Melbourne

It was a close one in the first half, but the Demons managed to slowly pull away in the 2nd to take an 83-69 win over Port Adelaide. Toby Bedford (FWD, $239,700, BE 59) had 5 disposals and 2 marks for 30 SCPoints.

The Casey Demons had the bye in the VFL in Round 17.

North Melbourne

North finally got another win, managing to hold on to nab a 92-88 win over Richmond. Jason Horne-Francis (MID/FWD, $277,100, BE 80) returned to the side and had 12 disposals, 4 marks and 3 tackles for 56 SCPoints. Phoenix Spicer (FWD, $124,600, BE 18) had 8 disposals, 1 mark and 2 tackles for 36 SCPoints, Flynn Perez (DEF/MID, $213,800, BE 14) had 15 disposals, 4 marks and 4 clangers for 55 SCPoints, Charlie Lazzaro (MID/FWD, $225,500, BE 78) finished with 4 disposals and kicked 2 behinds 20 SCPoints in his 16% T0G and Paul Curtis (FWD, $277,700, BE 41) kicked 3 goals with 14 disposals, 3 marks and 2 tackles for 83 SCPoints.

North Melbourne fell just short of making it a double victory against Richmond, losing 58-56 in their VFL match. Jack Mahony (FWD, $172,800) had 22 disposals, 5 marks, 4 clearances and 4 tackles with a goal, Josh Goater (MID, $117,300) had 18 disposals, 4 marks and 1 tackle and Atu Bosenavulagi (DEF, $167,600) had 17 disposals, 3 marks and 3 tackles.

Richmond

Kicking 11.22 is always going to make it difficult to win a game of football and Richmond found that out after losing 92-88 to North Melbourne. Tylser Sonsie (MID, $117,300, BE -12) made his AFL debut and had 19 disposals, 1 mark and 1 tackle for 59 SCPoints, his score likely lowered a bit due to 13 uncontested possessions. Noah Cumberland (MID/FWD, $123,900, BE -91) had a big game, booting 3.4 with 14 disposals, 4 marks, 4 tackles and 7 inside 50’s for 101 SCPoints.

Sam Banks (DEF, $117,300) had 20 disposals, 4 marks, 3 tackles and a goal, Rhyan Mansell (DEF, $263,800) had 18 disposals, 5 marks, 3 tackles and 2 clearances and Judson Clarke (MID/FWD, $146,400) finished with 16 disposals, 1 mark, 4 tackles and 2 clearances.

Luke Cleary (DEF, $117,300 – BE-67) was the medical substitute for this game but was not used.

Footscray had a bye in the VFL.

Adelaide

It went down to the wire, but the Crows couldn’t get the points with a 91-86 loss to Collingwood.

Port was in the game for most of it, but just fell short in the 4th quarter and had a 83-69 loss to Melbourne. Jackson Mead (MID/FWD, $244,500, BE 64) had 9 disposals, 1 mark and 3 tackles with 4 clangers for 30 SCPoints. Jase Burgoyne (MID, $117,300, BE -64) was the unused medical sub.

The Dockers struggled to slow down the Swans in the 4th quarter and it led to a 82-65 loss to Sydney.

West Coast

West Coast had a 102-77 loss to Hawthorn on Sunday. Jail Culley (MID/FWD, $102,400, BE -49) made his AFL debut and was a tackling machine, registering 11 tackles, along with 12 disposals and 7 clearances to score 90 SCPoints. Very good first up game for him, though averaging double digit tackles each week might be a bit too much to expect, he at least has some clear sources for scoring points. Rhett Bazzo (DEF/FWD, $153,900, BE 6) had 12 disposals, 6 marks and 50 SCPoints, Callum Jamieson (RUC, $210,300, BE 63) scored 64 SCPoints from 10 disposals, 2 marks, 2 tackles, 4 hitouts and 2 clearances, Bailey J.

Downgrades are the top moves this week, with the obvious picks in the Triple C of Culley, Cumberland and Carmichael being the most popular choices. The Saints are a popular source of upgrades, with Steele, Marshall and Sinclair all hitting the top 10, taking care of all 4 lines with their dual eligibility. There’s a bit of sideways action going on with Cripps and Green, with Steele the most popular sideways choice for Cripps, though a few have gone for Rory Laird at his higher price. If you’ve got the money now is the time to spend it though as we head towards Supercoach Finals.

And that’ll be it for me this week, as usual you can reach me on the Twitter @BarronVonCrow or you can leave a question/comment in the section below. See you all next week!

Am I crazy cutting Dusty for Rowan? I’ve held him the last 3 weeks being patient. He’s my fav player and I’m a tigers fan so I feel dirty not having him lol. Though I’ve lost the last 2 weeks because I’ve held Hall & Dusty & Oliver…
I have 3 trades left and he’s going to cost me 2.

That said I checked my H2H and I should win this week without Dusty. Just don’t know if I should make the move which leaves me with 1 trade in the finals and I’m top 2 in league and Dusty my fav player 😐

Without Ryder, Marshall goes large. Besides his last half he got injured in Dusty hasn’t dominated this year. Though if he does end up heading to NSW every chance he goes crazy for end of year?

Lekdog

Bring in Ro!

Rick Grimes

Rowan Marshall has been crook this week, apparently. May mean nothing.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Just heard dusty had a set back and set to send more time on the sidelines. Time to ship him off beard. I’d do dusty to rohan if only gonna cost u one.

Pull the TRIGGA mate.

Does Hewett not playing make Cripps a hold for another week? Don’t want to use trades if not required and hoping Cripps can go large again!

Lekdog

I think so Monk!

TRIGGA HAPPY

Dow may get a gig. Cripps should score more with Hewett out.

Rick Grimes

Brayshaw, absolute dross. 5 point 3rd quarter. On my never again list. Just not premo material.

Rick Grimes

8 mins on the bench last qtr. Absolute joke.

TRIGGA HAPPY

We burn u burn too. 🔥
U are not alone Grimey.

Hi team! Should I trade out Whitfield or Green for Marshall?
Plus of having Whit is the DPP and can swing between mid and def – just need him to play!

David C

Green has effectively been dropped. No news on how long Whit is out for. I’d trade Green.

Baz

Thanks mate!

Questions:

1. Do I captain Neale against GC or Steele against WC. My VC was Mills.
2. Do I trade Wehr to Pendlebury as my last defender or leave it till next week and try to bring in Stewart. Only have 4 trades left and will now have to trade Houston next week due to concussion.

Any thoughts or advice much appreciated.

Kat

TOss of the coin but I would go Steele. Knowing you have to trade Houston next week I would hold Wehr for the moment and save your trades Also depends on how you are going and if you need to win to make finals If need to win to make finals then trade Wehr Not much use having spare trades if you dont make it

Derek

I’m holding Wehr this week and getting Stewart next week

TRIGGA HAPPY

Urk.
That was horrible

Shake n bake

Was there any panic room last week?

Daz

Your the only comment I’ve seen for days. No panic room or cheat sheet.
Am I missing something? I keep refreshing but nothing.

Lekdog

Life beat us last week. Back on track this week. Pod is up!

Shake n bake

Kat
