The TEAM – Rd10

Written by Schwarzwalder on May 24 2017

Welcome to the TEAM!  A throng of Supercoaches searching for the best TEAM possible……..

 

Rd8 Score: 2255

Overall Ranking: 18 330

Trades Left: 20

Remaining Salary: $183 000

 

Trade History

Rd4 – Mitchell Hibberd (NTH) to Nic Newman (SYD) & Max Gawn (MEL) to Stefan Martin (BRL)

Rd5 – Tim Taranto (GWS) to Zac Fisher (CAR) & Jaeger O’Meara (HAW) to Marc Murphy (CAR)

Rd6 – Sam Powell-Pepper(PTA) to Harley Balic (FRE) & Jarryd Roughead (HAW) to Lance Franklin (SYD)

Rd7 – Brandan Parfitt (GEE) to James Parsons (GEE)

Rd8 – Dan Houston (PTA) to David Myers (ESS) & Curtly Hampton (ADE) to Taylor Adams (COL)

Rd9 – Dan Butler (RIC) to James Stewart (ESS)

 

Just the one trade over the weekend: Dan Butler to James Stewart.  I very nearly wielded my ‘Executive Power’ and brought in Rance for Otten.  I held back though, due to our Top6DEF poll before the season.  Rance was about 8th on the list with just a fifth of the vote, so I let it slide.

We still had a decent weekend.  The TEAM picked up 8/10 League wins and moved up nearly 5000 spots in the Rankings.  Plus we still have 20 trades and $183k in the bank (very handy!).  Our TEAM as it now stands………

OK, Coaches…….we’re up early again this week for two reasons.  Rd10 starts on Thursday night at the Cattery & we need to adjust the TEAM for the Bye Rounds.  As it stands right now, we are missing 13-4-10 players from the upcoming Bye Rounds (plus Eddy, Strnadica & Balic).  Long story short……we need a few extra bodies on-field for that first Bye week (next week – Rd11) if possible.

My first instinct would be downgrading Balic to D.Lloyd/Greenwood & upgrading Marchbank to next best DEF premium (with a Rd12/13 Bye).  Or downgrade Marchbank (maybe to McInnes?) and bring in Joel Selwood for Balic.  Do they sound like decent options?  You tell me…….anyone can make a suggestion in the comments below.  Your trade ideas will be rated by the Coaching Staff (Thumbs UP/DOWN) and we should have new polls available by Wednesday night.  So let’s hear those ideas of yours………

** UPDATE on 24.5.17 at 7.30pm **

Well, Coaches……..as is often the case, a surprise has caught us off-guard.  Sandilands will miss this week and we need to cover him with Nankervis in the Ruck.  It’s going to be a mad dash between teams being announced and the Lockout coming into effect on Thursday night.  So I might need to wield some ‘executive power’ this week.  I just need to know which direction we’re going in.  And I could do with some of your trade ideas as a guide………….

  1. How have we spent 10 trades and still need to get 6 or more premo’s in to complete the side? We need to get our arse moving on upgrades! But can we this week?

    Balic for Lloyd for $ is an option, but our problem is that all our big money makers are in the backline and there is no need to upgrade there yet. Might have to go Marchbank to McInnes this week and start really picking blokes off aggressively after the R11 bye!

    TU 2 downgrades
    TD 1 up 1 down (maybe Selwood in as Schwartz mentioned)

      1. Averages 90 odd with Jenkins out of the side and would be great bye cover. Wait on teams but if no Jenkins he stays in

        1. Has a last 3 rounds average of 65 and total average of 78 is losing cash currently and if you decide to keep throughout the byes he could possibly lose you 60k.

      2. Nope. Marchbank has a be of 91 and we need to offload Rnd 11 bye players.

        We need to move Marchbank on with greater urgency than otten. Otten will play both 11 and 12 byes and then can be offloaded.

  2. I would firstly downgrade Harley Balic to Daniel Lloyd as he is on the bubble, then upgrade Andy Otten to a premium defender, ideally Jake Lloyd would be an obvious selection however him, Newman and Docherty all have the same bye so I would choose him after the bye rounds. So for this round I would take either Jarrod Harbow as a POD or Alex Rance with a handy Round 12 bye.

    1. Harbrow is good as he plays all 3 bye rounds.

      Rance and Howe have good b/e’s and favourable byes.

  3. marchbank to mciness then balic up to ebert/wines or even gaz. Gives 2 more players for round 11 bye and 1 less onfield rookie

    4

    11
  4. Anyone with me on the trades mentioned above?

    OUT: Marchbank & Balic
    IN: McInnes & J.Selwood

    Helps us big time with the bye rounds and brings in an elite MID in the process. Not sold on McInnes, but Otten & Newman can hold down D5 & D6 for now……

    1. I did very similar trades in my team I would have done the exact same but I didnt have the money to boot Balic for Selwood.

    2. Got a feeling Lang & Ruggles will replace Bews & Parsons this round, these trades above will give us a donut in the forward line depending on team selection!

      1
  5. Or the other way around?

    OUT: Marchbank & Balic
    IN: D.Lloyd & Premium DEF with R12/13 bye (Rance, Hurley, Tuohy, Z.Williams?)

    1. Might leave us pretty short in def for Rnd 13 but could offload Otten then either for upgrade or downgrade.

  6. Honestly think we could downgrade pickett to Greenwood a week early so we miss the donut. Just the one trade,

    or

    Go Marchbank down and to a premium FWD such as JJK as he has the good bye

    1. Really like the thinking behind this one. Only worry is that it doesn’t help our Bye Structure. But if it gets enough support from the Coaching Staff…….

      1. Yeah I counted how many we had available round 11 afterwards ha. I just thought it gets rid of two dud rookies. That way just keep Marchbank for now because we will be struggling through byes with rookies. I guess Harbrow could work. That would give us 16 available next week

    2. What about Harbrow instead of Hibberd. Don’t think there will be much difference in their points and he has already had his bye.

      6

  7. Ok here’s another alternative.

    Balic – Scott Selwood
    Pickett – Greenwood

    (Nank and Strnadica swap via dpp)

  8. To cover the donut we need to move on some non playing rookies.

    Balic to Lloyd
    Eddy to Greenwood

    Then we will have cash to get a gun next week.

  9. Harbrow has played 6 games, with 5 tons and a 98.3 average. Fifth place on 3 Rd average with 106.3. Ownership at Rd 9 completion 1.3% and price $472,500. I think Roberton, Lloyd and Hibberd are all better prospects, but their Rd 11 bye exacerbates the problem.
    Greenwood (barring mishap) should be good for a run of games, especially with Hampton out and not huge competition. Galluci more likely to lose his spot. So, Marchbank out, Harbrow in.
    Balic out, Greenwood forward via Pickett dpp to avoid donut. And $185,300 in the bank.

  10. TEAM UPDATE:

    OUT – Marchbank & Balic
    IN – Harbrow & Greenwood

    Bringing Hibberd in would’ve guaranteed a donut in Rd11. Taking a chance on Harbrow, expecting similar output plus the extra game and cover throughout the byes. Fingers crossed…..
