  1. So Lloyd is killing me by not owning him.

    Do I need to get him in next week for Doedee or bring in the Hoff this week for cover on Fwd/ mids lines? ( Fyfe injured no bench rookies named and playing Ahern and Holman)

    Help please! Oh and very low on trades! Damn all these late injuries!!

    1. I think Hoff is a great band aid in the midfield Macca, with his dpp I’m personally grabbing him this week for Fyfe to fill that spot for 2-3 weeks ( hopefully 105-110 average )

      Then before SC finals Macrae should be back (r18 ) & around mid $500’s after his high be time after 1-2 games, then swap Hoff forward for a Windgard/Walters type for $100k!

      Not sure of your entire team though!

      1. Thanks Catta – think I’m going to miss Lloyd this year – mind you he burned me badly last year which is why I have held off, now with all of my last 4 trades getting injured including the bench rookies who cane in for cover, I’m struggling!!

  2. Worth considering these taggers before selecting your final midfield upgrade or Fyfe replacement, these are the SC finals below!

    (Hewett Swans )
    R20 … Collingwood ( Sidebottom/Pendles )
    R21 … Melbourne ( Oliver / Viney )
    R22 … GWS ( Kelly / Shiel )
    R23 … Hawthorn ( Mitchell / Smith ) ( GF )

    Jacobs ( North )
    R20 … Brisbane ( Zorko / Beams )
    R21 … WB ( Bont / Macrae )
    R22 … Adelaide ( Sloane / Crouch )
    R23 … STK ( Steven / Ross ) ( GF )

    No doubt there’s other taggers to consider, but I rate these 2 the best of the crop in 2018 in front of Curnow, Robinson, Steele, Shiels, Hutchings & co

    Cheers Catta

      1. Agreed, allsaints

        He’s done it over the last few years & been reasonably serviceable IMO, role change or personal seems to of created a change in Richo’s view on Steele / tagging!

    1. Catta

      Banfield has been done a few jobs for Freo this year.

      Sc Finals Freo play the Eagles / Blues / Cats / Pies.

      1. Absolutely, FT

        He’s definitely one of the ”co” mentioned above, for a first year player ( I think ) he has had a very underrated start to his career Freo Tragic.

        R20 …. ( Gaff / Yeo / Shuey )
        R21 …. ( Murphy / Cripps )
        R22 …. ( Selwood / Gaz / Danger )
        R24 …. ( Sidebum / Pendles / Treloar pending injuries ) GF

        Cheers Catta

  3. TU:
    This week – Fyfe-Oliver & Banfield-Shuey
    6 trades left

    TD:
    This week – Banfield-Gaff & Guelfi-Sier
    Next week – Fyfe-Oliver
    5 trades left

    Essentially, is the Gaff upgrade on Shuey worth the extra trade burnt?

  4. One from real left field. Have 8 trades and fyfe . Spargo goes fwd for T Smith and sits on the bench as I have no fwd cover (battle other fwd bench), then bring in Armitage for spargo to cover Fyfe till he returns. Giro on mid bench and Armitage onfield.. Armitage is the m9 for finals hopefully.

    Or, straight fyfe to bont or similar.

    T/U first option
    T/D second option

  5. Who to Bench
    T/U Mihochek
    T/D Cox

    If Mihochek is taking Dunns role will that affect his scoring and is Coxy due for another bag?

  6. Would you gamble on bringing in M Crouch for his price (hand injury too) for Fyfe?
    I’m at full premo with 5 trades left and with Hibberd sitting at D6.
    This will give me $$$ in the bank to upgrade Hibberd to a better premuin prior to finals..

    TU – Not a bad idea. Grab Couch and the cash.
    TD – Trade Fyfe to another premuin and just keep Hibberd at D6 with 4 trades.

    1. I’d be steering clear due to the injury – won’t take much for him to be put on ice id it’s already fractured. Might not also go in for the tackle as much either and he did have 9 last week boosting his score.

  7. With all the carnage I’ve still got Doedee and Hibberd at D6 / D7 (Ryan at D5)

    No loophole so…

    D6 this week.

    T/U Doedee. Playing The Tigers.

    T/D Hibberd. Dockers in Darwin

    Thanks folks.

  8. JJK to Hurley? (via Sicily)
    Only have $460k for a defender or forward.

    TU: Do it
    TD: There are better options

  9. The good news: I have a full-premium team with swinging bench-cover that allows me to cover an injury on any line except the ruck without having to field a rookie or make a trade. In other words, I have 23 keepers.

    The bad news: I have Fyfe, and Heeney’s concussion means that the swinging bench system is not operational this week. I also only have 4 trades left.

    This week notwithstanding, barring further injury I could cover Fyfe’s absence until his return, at the cost of some points.

    I’m also going for overall rather than leagues, if that affects your vote.

    TU: Trade Fyfe. If you’re going for overall, you need all the points you can get. 4 to 5 weeks is just too long to hold out.
    TD: Hold, or at least hold until you get another injury. Forget points, you need to keep your trades!

    1. Hmmm. I’m trading thanks to your advice earlier and am going for overall not Leagues.
      I am also gonna trade NicNat OUT for Grundy after Simmo’s comments about his soreness AND Vardy named as cover.
      Two trades left after this.
      Funny how these are the trades I made last Sunday night and it has taken me all week to convince myself/be convinced, that this is the right way to go.

      1. allsaints.

        I have really enjoyed your contributions to this great site.
        So I will tell this to ya straight.

        Super Coach is no fun when you run out of trades.

        HOLD!

        1. true dat Freo ….. OR, you can just shrug your shoulders, feel all the stress and worry wash away and sit back and actually enjoy the matches and not worry about who scored what and how many dipSh$ts are at CD with their dodgy scoring of players you don’t have!!!! … *wink*

        2. Thanks mate. Appreciate it v much. Are you saying hold Fyfe too, or just NicNat?
          Have a projected 2244 total this week. Not good enough this time of year I know and normally end up a couple of hundred below that every week too.
          I think I need to feel the pain to ensure I don’t press that T button with the same abandon next year.
          Besides, I can still witter on on here til the cows come home when my season comes to a grinding halt. I love it!
          Those last two trades will keep me happy for a while. And when they run out I have great dpp options and with Moore named tonight, all benchers playing apart from Olango. What’s not to like?!?
          Thanks again FT. Really do appreciate it. But it’s just not me. Been a risk-taker all my life and believe me that’s a while 🙂

          1. With 4 trades left I would hold Nic Nat, at least until he actually got injured or rested, but as someone who already has Grundy that’s easy for me to say.

            You should definitely trade Fyfe, though.

    1. Go to Players on SC options
      Rank by price, lowest
      Using filters …
      Restrict to WCE and FRE
      Restrict to MIDs and FWDs
      Take your pick!!

  12. 5 trades left
    Fo I use 2this week by bringing in gaff and shied for Fyfe and guelfi. TU

    Or

    Use just 1 trades and bring in gaff for Fyfe. TD

    Trade preservation at this time of year is critical

    1. Not convinced he’ll even play, let alone score well. According to Adam Simpson “he’s been sore for a couple of weeks (which explains his recent sub-par scores) but should play” and with Vardy named I fear he may be a late OUT. I might be reading too much into it, but am getting very twitchy for the T button for a late Grundy trade. Will decide Sunday before the Pies’ game.

  13. Anyone know how Shane Mumford went in his debut fight tonight?

    I got some pre-fight live vision from Ricky “Chicken” Nixon of him throwing his heavy hands with a trainer, also getting in the ring but that it?

  14. TU beams (huge ceiling but can drop stinkers)

    TD Zorko ( Can he break a tag yet)

      1. Thanks allsaints..

        Really want Westhoff to finish off forwards…

        So thinking then:

        Fyfe > Sier on field this week / Guelfi > Westhoff

        Then hopefully have enough for MCrouch or even Sloane next week??

        Essentially burning an extra trade to upgrade Shuey to Crouch..

    6600ish overall, 10 trades and one game clear on top

    1. I have him. He surely can’t go any worse than he has the last few weeks. Tending back to the mean and all that. Might be worth a stab and likes playing at home (with plenty to come at Optus from here).

  17. To avoid a donut bring in
    T/U Billings
    T/D The Hoff
    Billings burned me bad holding him till he was dropped. But he is so cheap possibly I could use the extra cash next week but I do need the points now. Has Billings turned a corner or am I just being sucked in again?Burn me once shame on you burn me twice shame on me

      1. Thank you.

        I hope he goes well for you today.

        I’ve owned the Hoff all year. He used to be a POD!

  18. Should I go Ridley to Mihocek for 32k? My cover is currently Redman and Ridley and neither look like playing anytime soon. Only 4 trades left but at full premo and have good cover in the forward Line and midfield. Facing a Simmo donut this week and potential future donuts if I don’t make the trade.

    1. Redman is out for another 6-8 weeks due to his ankle while Ridley is only out because of form. If I was deciding between the two, I would select Redman. Are you doing this trade purely for a little bit more cash? If so, 32k is not much gain for a trade.

      If you are desperate to at least get one D7/8 position player to be actually playing, the list of low priced Defenders who are selected only include:
      Brad Lynch (123,900) – WBD
      Darragh Joyce (123,900) – although I read this post too late and he is playing right now (STK) and doing terribly (-3 SC at half time)

      1. Hey Daniel cheers for the response. No Mihocek will cost me 32k, it’s to avoid donuts for the rest of the year, when a player misses a week or two and not just this week which is why I want Mihocek but don’t trust the others. If it was just this week I would definitely cop the donut. Some chance Ridley comes back into the side but it doesn’t look to likely at this stage. Pies kind of “need” Mihocek at the minute.
