  1. IS DBJ a must have?

    TU – trade Milera to DBJ, Milera will struggle to get back
    TD – hold your trade, $90k profit not great

    1. I don’t think he’s a must have, Papley was a must have 2 weeks ago and look where he is now. That being said Milera is injured and has scored poorly even with Adelaide winning, can’t see him making much more when he comes back so I recommend making the trade.

  2. Going to loophole Mills. If he scores well (80+), who should I put on the bench:

    TU – Kerridge
    TD – BKennedy

    Both play Sunday.

      1. Yeah, but that’s Carlton EVERY week 😉 ……..and they’ve averaged the same till now (pretty much)

  3. I’m having second thoughts about my trades.

    Tu: milera/lonergan to byrnes’s is my planned trade
    Td: lonergan to Byrne-jones, Barlow to Fyfe

    1. If I go Fyfe it means I have McCarthy papley and milera. I think I’ll go original trades this week and swing amt to forwards. At least I’ll have 360k to play with

      1. Interesting results. I’m going with thumbs up. It adds a link between def/fwd and makes rookies stronger in forwards. At least I can watch how Barlow goes again. If he gets a sub par score against the blues he’s out. At least his b/e is low. Just means I miss Fyfe if he goes huge

  4. Is it worth trading out Martin and bringing in Hall to have $150K in the bank next week to upgrade Z.Smith to a premo?

    T/U: Good Idea, get it done
    T/D: Dont be silly, Martin will come good

    1

  5. I have Barlow, Papley, Davis, BKennedy and Mitch Brown, and have considered trading all of them at some stage this week, but now I’m thinking I’ll keep them all.

    T/U Trades, Lloyd. They’re ****ing golden.
    T/D Knock those barnacles off the ship

    If you TDed, then who?

    1. Barlow gone for me, 27 trades left, 336k in the bank and he’s my biggest issue so I am happy to jump off ship.

      If I want DBJ, i need to pull the pin on either Brown, Dunkley, Davis, Oliver or Papley and now sure who or if it’s worth it. Got BKen and i’m sticking fat with him for now.

      1. Why not hold Barlow for one more week? Playing the blues and he has an OK break even – trade him next week when Mundy returns if you must

  6. My gut trades I’m backing in for this Round:

    Papley – DBJ
    Johannisen – Ward (via numerous DPPs)

    T/U – Stick with your gut
    T/D – Reconsider the moves

  7. Will Stef Martin be a late out ( concussions aren’t good, and that was a huge hit ) with Goldie playing the twilight game before him on Saturday, I’ll be gutted if Stef is a late out & I also miss the boat on getting Goldie!

    My questions is SCT coaches…. Do I trade down one of my rookies to a Byrne-Jones ( Port ) giving me enough $$$$$ to go Stef Martin to Goldie, or stop panicking as Stef Martin will get up from his concussion & bang out a premium score

    T/U……Do the trade Catta
    T/D……Cool ya jets Catta, all will be sweet with Stef

    1. Wait until tomorrow to decide when you may have more data since you don’t have to do those moves tonight?

    2. I was sweating this in the teams post last night and someone said why would he travel to Melbourne to be a late which sounds pretty solid for me

    3. I suspect a late out. Anyone who lets any player play the week after being concussed is thinking short term. Too much evidence about the seriousness of concussions to ignore.

      1. Not that I disagree with you Brian, Stef was in the winning circle belting out the song after the win!

        If he was too bad, I couldn’t of thought of a worst spot for him to be…..confined space & 22 players bellowing out the winning song is pretty loud & he looked quite comfortable.

    4. I don’t reckon he was concussed Catta. Some people suffer concussion from mild knocks, others can lose their head with minimal swelling.

      Stef never actually failed a concussion test so he’s likely the latter. That said, I’d like a precautionary week off for any player knocked out as a league rule.

  8. Also had a SC Draft dilemma, JJ was one of my unique players that was paying off for me in the first few W’s I claimed the last few Rounds, and I’m yet to move him on out of my team.

    It seems like the smart call is to move JJ on for a potential breakout Defender that may or may not track along nicely for the rest of the season (e.g. Biggs, Savage, etc), but at the same time I’m concerned that someone in my league will snap JJ up and keep him until he is back fit and firing later in the season.

    I do have 3 Defenders that I can play this week in Houli, Biggs and Suckling, while JJ sits on my bench (and I could potentially use him as a C Loophole since the Draft options set pre-season allow me to do so), but my main question is:

    T/U – Still move JJ on for a playing Defender, not worth holding on the Draft bench for numerous weeks on end (if you pick this option I can get the waiver wire list and mention some available players in Defence)

    T/D – Hold JJ, play those 3 Defenders and use JJ as a C Loophole.

    6

    8
    1. Here’s a list of the Free Agents Defenders I can take a punt on for JJ if he’s leaving my team:

      Savage (89.3 AVG)
      Fantasia (91.3 AVG)
      Hurn (85.0 AVG)
      Mackie (83.0 AVG)
      Rampe (78.8 AVG)
      Cutler (70.8 AVG)

      Just to name a few options…

      Which of these guys would be the better replacement for JJ if I was to get rid of him?

      0

      4
      1. JJ is out for 10 weeks. The odds of all 3 of your playing defenders playing every week til he is back and in form seems low. However if you are confident that the defender you would waive him for wont be snapped up, then you could risk it and keep him until one of Houli, Biggs or Suckling werent named and you needed cover.

  9. I can’t decide between DBJ or Ciaran Byrne. Who has the better JS. I am leaning towards the Blues Byrne as there appears to be more competition for small port defenders.

    TU Ciaran Byrne
    TD DBJ

  10. Having a dilemma with JJ
    this is my current line up, Im also trading milera to DBJ this week
    Backs: Laird, Adams, JJ, Shaw, Dea, Weitering (Brown, Tippa)

    Mids: Mitchell, Danger, Gaz,Libba, Priddis, m.crouch, Mills, Oliver, (Menadue, hewwit, davis)

    tu) Trade jj and milera to DBJ and gibson using DPP with tippa
    td) Trade jj and Milera to DBJ and one of fyfe, parker ward using dpp with Menadue and milera, strengthening my mids but having to start tippa down back

    Thanks if td a comment on which to pick would be greatly appreciated

    1. I’d say TD as your Def looks quite strong with Tippa on the bench currently, presuming you have decent forward cover.

  11. The more I think the more I think about not trading. DBJ would be great if I had someone I really wanted to move out but no cow ripe, obviously, and I don’t really want to ditch any of my other players. I could also be being silly. I’m vaguely concerned, about another rookie defender but perhaps that is being too picky…..I’m obviously torn….

    Would you trade one of the below for DBJ? (T/U) If so care to share why?

    J. Lonergan
    T. Sheridan
    T. McKenzie

    1. Hey Father, I was faced earlier on this week with the same thoughts about Lonergan to DBJ, and made the trade, maybe cause I reacted to a 2025 score last week and really only netted 230k me which really wasn’t enough. Thought about it for a while, and I’m just adding another cow, and like u I have no cows ready to move. Thinking about it, I reversed the trade, and will keep lonergan, in 2 or 3 weeks he will become Petracca. Have used 4 trades so far so don’t want to use another this week. Don’t have the other 2 mid priced defenders u talked about, maybe a downgrade/upgrade but I guess amongst all of us, u are the most qualified to decide how much a trade is worth.. Wheww, that felt like a confession..

      2

      1. Thanks for sharing all that! Confessions are always welcome; just say three “Hail Gary’s” before the lockout and all is forgiven. 🙂

        I suspect I am better at helping people think about things and providing information that I am at actually making good decisions myself!

        Perhaps I am just getting very reluctant to make any trades I don’t feel very happy with. I was burnt hard at the end of last season having unproductively blown trades early on. I suppose a non trading mistake can be made up for with that trade later on, but a mistake that uses up a trade is with you forever and can’t be fixed without even more trading. Hmm….

        1. I wouldn’t trade, if I was you, for the reasons you just mentioned, but I have JJ, so trading to DBJ is a necessity for me, so I can upgrade to premo elsewhere next week. It really depends on each individual team make up. Good luck with the decision 🙂

    2. Ok take Lonergan for instance,has a BE near his average and is averaging around the same as DBJ. Do you let sleeping dogs lie or cash in on the money you make from that trade, then when DBJ goes up the 150k in a few weeks you can then purchase a fallen premo (Pendles comes to mind). On Pendlebury its my firm belief that Buckley will have no other choice but to start playing him in the middle, he’s not injured just doesn’t get as much contested ball. He currently has a BE of 140 odd which if he plays in the middle this week will probably attain.

    1. Docherty if you want consistent 90-110 scores, Gibson if you’re okay with a few bad games, but a few massive games too.

      8

      0
      1. Im leaning towards docherty. Loves playing at Domain, has a good record there. Also, he’s playing as that link man from half back and used as the get out kick from defense. Just plays a very supercoach friendly role. But Gibson does have a better ceiling and a lower BE. Maybe Ill get the doc next week

  12. I’ve gone JJ – DBJ No brainer.. but I’m stuck on wether to go
    Seedsman- Gibson or bring in another cow like Ruggles or Wagner
    TU- Gibson
    TD- Another Cow

  13. trying to stiffen up my def
    thinking of trading out Dea for Rance,thoughts behind this would be,
    Rance is the top points scoring def, and should remain a top 6 def for rest of year,has a few price rises to go yet,dea will go up price but approx the same as Rance’s price rise,so I think the benefit of Dea’s price is negated by Rance’s price rise.and the obvious 30 points per game extra,going of current ave’s.
    T/u Rance
    T/d wait

  14. 2 trade scenarios I’m considering
    First trade is JJ to DBJ that is a given
    Now for my second trade
    T/U SGray to zaharakis with 420Kleft to do two upgrades next week (could go someone but only want to spend 100K so that I can do 2 upgrades next week)
    T/D SGray to C Byrne leave me with 800K to do 4 upgrades over 2 weeks

    11

  15. What do you guys think of Wines?

    Looking to trade him up to someone like Ward, Priddis, Hanners or swap him to Zaha.

    TU – Trade
    TD – Keep for now

    Thanks 🙂

  16. Need your advice SC’ers

    I am trading JJ to DBJ, leaves me with $400.9k, feels a bit too much to hold onto

    Should I trade Papley ($224.3k) to a premium? I have $625.2 so I can afford Parker or Hanners

    TU – Hanners
    TD -Parker

    21

  17. Current dilemma……

    I have jj, paps and de goey. Looking at either, Option one- jj and paps for buddy and dbj. Or option two – jj and de goey for buddy and rance. both have pros and cons, ie war chest and varying break evens. Option two sucks all my funds, and with no incoming rookies on the horizon for the next few weeks, I may be stuck with fat cows and no one to trade down to. Thoughts / opinions welcome. Cheers.

    Thumbs up option one, thumbs up option two.

    1. Going against the grain here, but I don’t see getting rid of Milera as a priority. He’s not going to lose value whilst he’s not playing, and gives you a L/H option, albeit not this week. If you’re thinking about getting rid of Paps, then you’re probably concerned about him losing value? If so, that answers your original question.

  18. Obviously wanting to stay in touch with the top 5. The community knowledge is always appreciated.

    Thinking of the following:
    Trade 1 – Paps to DBJ
    Trade 2 – JJ to Rance
    Have DPP options for any premo up to $567,500 so can pick DEF, MID or FWD
    Only used two trades thus far.
    TU: Good trades
    TD: There are better options

    Also have Barlow in FWD but think he can still notch up a decent score against the Blue (Sorry Motts), Considering Zaharakis in that he could be a keeper or increase enough to trade later to an ultra premo.

    Feel free to comment with suggestions

    9

    1
      1. DEF – Weitering, Dea, Adams, Brown, Ruggles (AMT in FWD)
        MID – Dunkley, Mills, BenKen, David, Hewett, Kerridge (FWD)

        0

        0
  19. Z Merrett

    TU: Real deal, could average 105+ from here to the end of the season
    TD: Great start but will fade away

    13

    15
  20. With all my list bar Davis playing this weekend my C loophole options are severely limited, so VC on
    T/U – Betts
    T/D – Laird
    With Gaj or Goldy to carry the C – toss of the coin imo

    6

    12
  21. Is Zerrett a must have forward this year?
    Considering jj and papley to Dbj and Zerrett.
    Leaves me with a very strong team but a very weak back line.

  22. Johannisen replacement with limited $

    Thumbs up: Tom Mitchell

    Thumbs down: Zaharakis

    Another last minute query ~ ~
    Whats the meaning on life?

      1. Hitchhiker’s

        So the meaning of life is Taylor Hunt (42 ave) ¿

        With all seriousness, thanks guys but have chosen to run with TMitch

  23. I’m done with Lonergan. He’s not a top 6 defender, so I’m bailing on him now. Keeping Paps for now. The fact he’s named this week shows some faith from Horse and he can still make mo’ moneh.

    Lonergan out, Docherty in (hello Motts :P)
    Milera out, DBJ in via DPP

    Good trade? Rubbish trade?

    18

    1. Reckon you should hold Lonergan, and hope for a 130 to get a price spike. Make the most of the situation.

  24. Wingard,rioli, josh Jenkins and Tom lynch. At the moment have Tom lynch on the bench in supercoach draft, not sure who’s going to score the most points out of those 4… Any idea who I should definately beach out of the 4?

  25. question to community,projected to get 2274,i’m ranked 4900 ish,and need to get a rattle on,i have a full team on field,no bench cover in mids or fwd,27 trades in the bank,and300k to play with,i keep trading then reversing,trying to get more points,same as most of you,and it’s driving me crazy,my head say’s wait one more week,save your trades,as most of my cows will be nearly ripe next week,but can do couple of trades to increase this weeks round score.So should I relax and save my trades,or panic and start increasing your round score.
    love this game,but does my head in
    T/u save trades
    t/d trade or you’ll fall to far behind

  27. My plans for this round is Lonnergan>DBJ
    And Kennedy>Z Merrett but if Stef Martin doesn’t play I’ll forget about the 2nd trade and turn Martin into Gawn.

  28. Lots of queries re Zaha … perhaps the more pertinent additional question is twofold, “will the Pies have someone tag him on Monday, and will the rest of the comp tag him to shut him out of games now?” …

    Anyone out there “in the know”, care to provide some advice / comments on how he handles a tag?

    Thanks all!!

    1. I’ve watched a lot of footy early this year……..In general, I’d say that the tag isn’t high on the agenda of most AFL coaches. Ben Jacobs is about the only one and Fyfe managed 141 SC pts on him last week. Wouldn’t worry too much about tagging at the minute…….

    2. Zaka is a gun. BnF 2011. Has been impaired since. Excellent preseason. Motivated trainer. This year he is getting his just deserves. The tag is not as prevalent this year and I think BJ gets it first if at all. I doubt Collingwood or anyone else will tag Essendon players.

    1. I prefer Priddis but he has a BE of 163 this week. If you can get Doc this week and Priddis in a week or 2 that would be ideal.

  29. Barlow and S Gray to Fyfe and Byrne Jones
    Or
    Papley and S Gray to Kolo and Byrne Jones
    or
    Papley to Byrne Jones
    Or
    S Gray to Byrne Jones

    Thanks in advance!

  30. Can use a position switch so not sure which to bring in

    TU – Z.Merrett
    TD – A.Rance

    Or any other ideas???
    Thanks

    4

    2
    1. Same dilemma. Have gone Rance simply to keep balance on all lines.

      Go with whatever line needs the most help. It’s a long season to bring in who you need, and having a strong performer relegated to the bench just to accommodate a recruit while a spud stinks it up at the other end isn’t helping you score more points is it?

  31. I know this week there is a few tempting defence rookies, but I don’t have anyone jumping to be traded out other than Paley and maybe Lonergan. Is it worth holding trades with new rookies such as Tucker, Cox and Petracca looking likely to debut soon.

    T/U – Trade Papely for one of the def rookies this week.
    T/D – Let him rise over the next few weeks and wait for the next round of rookies.

    3

    6
  32. TU – sheridan to Ruggles
    S. Gray to Montagna

    TD – just trade sheridan to ruggles and give Sam Gray another week?

    7

    1
  33. Sheridan to Byrne Jones
    T miller to Hannebery

    Thumbs up – good trades
    Thumbs down – save the trades,its a long season.
    Thanks guys.

  34. Just reconsidering my trades currently i am going:
    Papley-DBJ, JJ- Zerret
    TU: Good trades
    TD: Bad trades. Get Zorko, Docherty, Rance or even Hanley

    6

  35. Itchy trigger finger but questioning my targets.

    Traded Milera out for DBJ and moved McTipu to the forward line.

    Current backs: Shaw, Laird, Adams, Wiet, Dea, DBJ, (Hartely, JJ)

    Trade JJ for:

    TU: Gibson (leaves $114k in bank) or Docherty (leaves $147k in bank)

    TD: C Byrne (leaves $$515k in bank)

    Any comments welcome.

    2

    1. Trade JJ to DBJ and then get the highest scoring mid or fwd you can afford. In fwds take Zorko or Zerret
