How Did You Go? – R11

Written by MJ on June 4 2017

There’s bound to be huge inconsistencies in scoring this week. Don’t be too disheartened if you weren’t able to score well, as there’s a fair chance you’ll do better in the next bye rounds.

Let’s use the following format:

Score / Captain / How many you fielded.

    1. If you’re trying to run even through the byes that should be pretty good, based on the top 1000 players in my league anyway.

    1. That should actually be 19 available not 21.
      Had 20 till sandy pulled out so perrymans score dropped out but bolton and myers were in that 1856.
      Ive got 20 available this week plus an additional defender in perryman.

  1. 1800 / Danger / 18

    Probably should have had one extra to buffer Sandi out but oh well. *Trying* to run pretty even through the byes so am happy enough.

  2. 1700/Danger

    Well it wasn’t a good round. Had to take Otten’s 36, Hardwick’s 52, Parson’s 56 and Myers 46.

    Shout outs to Dangerwood for tonning up when regulars like Laird failed me.

    Sandi really hurt me by not playing as I needed to replace score a like Otten, parsons, myers, mcgrath or even laird

    Yeah I had few terrible scores and that plan for 5 trades through the bye has gone in a flash

  4. 1791/Danger/19 (Dropped Ryans 37)

    Can’t wait to upgrade two of these useless spuds next week to 2 premos. Was going to upgrade Pickett to Dusty this week which would have netted me an extra 100 points but decided to wait for Rocky. Might be an oversight as I don’t need the extra premo next week and could have been super useful this week.

    EDIT: Up 125 spots into 385. Damn Dustys points would have been Baller! Capt’n hindsight at its finest.

    About par I think this week.

    Sandi out sucked. Hurts when you have Otten 36, Bolton 44, Scharenberg 46, Myers 46, Parsons 56 all playing.

  6. 1835/VC Danger/17

    Got caught out with Sandi, thinking of rage trading him to Kruezer due to the FURL factor. Can’t afford late withdrawals in the bye rounds.

    Special mentions to Danger, Kelly & Dusty.

  7. 1746/Danger/18

    Ins this week were Scooter, Cousins & Grundy at the last minute. Traded out Parker, R Fox & Sandi.

    Overall happy with the trades as sets me up well for the next two rounds. Hopefully that is a par score.

    Bringing in Zorko and Roberton this week so things can only get better . It will be a shame to get rid of some of the better scoring rookies ( Burton and Taranto )but there is no place for being sentimental in this game . Gotta chop to move up

  11. 1,766/18/Danger

    Got Bolton’s 44 as my 18th score. Lost Sandi and a 78 from him would have got me to the 1,800. Pretty happy. The 4 Collingwood boys plus Neale and Fyfe gave me a good end to the round and got me up in my main league.

  12. 1842 / Danger 19

    Dropped Ottens 37.

    Dusty Jellwood and Danger all awesome.

    Planned trades are Otten to Hibberd.

    Was going to trade one of SPP , WHE next week but will reassess as the both scored Ok.

    Pretty Happy all round.

  13. 1626 / Danger / 17

    A real shocker.

    Will probably throw me well out of the top 1000. Sandi late out was the nail in the coffin of a tough week. Looking much better for R12 & R13 so not all is lost.

  14. 1612 (damn Sandliands’ hamstring!). Not confident of keeping my ranking this week, but I’ll be able to field full teams for the remaining two bye rounds, so hopefully I’ll be able to make up any lost ground over the next fortnight.

    1. UPDATE: My ranking has slipped, but only to 665 (it was 276). That’s an order of magnitude better than what I was expecting.

      I’m very confident about the remainder of the season now.

  16. 1800 / Danger / 18 players no thanks to Sandi, moved up 2800 places to sit just inside the top 5000 which I’m rapt with. Had Laird, Myers, Parsons & Bolton. Happy to see Fyfe & Shaw return to a decent score.

  17. 1699/Goldi/19 dropped J. Stewart

    Decided to gamble on “not” Danger for a POD VC in Titch and when that did not work out ingeniously took Goldi’s history into account, over Kelly’s inexperience as a captain. How’d that work out for me?

    Moved back 76 spots to 2798 which was not as horrendous as I’d expected and with a full team next week I thought I would again be a POD king but it appears lots in the same boat.

    Good news I guess is I only lost 12 points to Macca in the Cup!

  18. Score: 1506/16
    Weekly Ranking: 85569
    Overall Ranking: 28498 (22478)
    Heroes: Dangerfield (C), Treloar
    Villains: None; Laird was hurt so he gets a pass.
    Notable Absentees: Berry, Bontempelli, Zorko, Beams, Barrett, Sandilands, Macrae, Dahlhaus, JJK, Heeney.
    Trades Made: Mutimer and Newman to Bolton and Ryan.
    Trades Planned: Eddy to Rockliff or Sandi to Rockliff and EVW to Docherty.
    Trades Left: 18

    Trades: 3/10. Two doughnuts eliminated but Bolton and Ryan could only manage 81 points between them.

    Defence: 4/10

    Adams slowed to just push over the 100; Shaw blew hot and cold to finish on a Bradman; Stewart continued to generate good money but EVW is slowing; Ryan didn’t set the world alight on debut and Laird suffered ill-effects from a knock.

    Midfield: 7/10

    Dangerfield led from the front with 149; Treloar backed him up, and Pendlebury and Fyfe chipped in with 100’s. Myers and Bolton weren’t as good; and will hopefully manage to stay in their respective teams.

    Ruck: 6.5/10

    Witts’ 96 was the only contribution. He continues to be a steady performer.

    Forwards: 6/10

    Yeo chipped in with 193, but Nankervis has lost his early season form. Greenwood good with another 70

    Overall: 5.5/10

    Comments:

    Just a very bad season for me so far. I’ve already had 5 doughnuts; I’m just hoping for a strong finish.

  19. 1873/Danger vc/18 (21)

    Stewart’s 35, Ottenโ€™s 36, and Perryman’s 43 all drop out. Leaving me to wear Higgin’s 62, Laird’s 59, Parson’s 56 and Myers 46.

    And of course Sandi’s donut.

    What a week for all rookies to fail at once.

    Yet, Oddly, top 2% rank for round Jumped over 2700 places to 2430.

    Big improvement.

  20. 1865 / Danger / 20

    Won 9/10 league matches. Moved up 2291 spots to 2239.

    Dropped Otten’s and Scharenberg’s scores. Sandi out meant I kept Hardwicks’s 52.

    Very happy overall this week, but worried about R13 still; the lack of downgrades playing that round that will make getting to 18 a challenge. Gonna enjoy this while I can. Lots of the people who had a rough R11 are likely to have a good R13, so will see how we look when the byes are all done.
