Last Minute Queries – Rd6

Written by Schwarzwalder on April 28 2017

Questions?  Questionables?  Questionability?  Quizzes? Quizzing?  Quizzed?  Quandaries?  Queries?  Queried?  Quagmires?  Q & A?  FAQs? Quick  answers!!

Round Six is here and there are plenty of queries floating around ahead of the Rolling Lockout.  Should I place the big C on Dangerfield or Fyfe?  Are there any players in danger of a late withdrawal?  Who starts at F6?  How does that Captains loophole thingy work again?  Could the unthinkable happen and the Tigers make it a 6-0 start to the year (go, you good things!)? 😉   Whatever the query, our SCT Coaches will be more than happy to answer it here………..

  2. Trading OUT Watson & Roughead

    TU) Balic+ Fisher IN with $584k left in the bank for upgrades next week (Swallow + WHE to leave my team next week – both upgrade to premos)

    TD) Balic + Selwood/Treloar $77-140k in the bank (possible downgrades Black, Parsons, McNiece, Melican next week)

  3. Hey Guys,

    Thoughts on these trades;

    SPP – Fisher
    Hoskin Balic/Black

    Next week Partiff – Dusty (Completed midfield) or 550k forward as i have 3-3 structure atm

    8

    7
  4. forward line is macrea, dahl, higgins, roughy, houston and butler.
    rucks are witts and sandi.
    i have 116,000 in the bank.

    i want to get rid of roughy.

    who should i target. I am thinking Nank. still cheaper than his output and i think he will keep this up. that means i should be aiming for him before roo and buddy. am i right or should i be looking elsewhere?

    1. alternative is i downgrade roughy to balic but i feel like roughy should be upgraded. Balic has not impressed me

      1. Hey Kid81 I missed Nank at the start of the season and was skeptical after his first couple of scores but he has kept them up. Was about to bring him in this week but am gonna wait a few weeks.

        Richmond play Adelaide, GWS and Bulldogs in their next 4 games so why not wait until after those games. If he’s still scoring well then he will be a necessity in my team but a good start to the year in a winning side against a lot of non-finals playing teams does not constitute a dominant year.

    1. I faced exact same question and went Fisher & Hardwick. Looked at them from every angle and could only justify Balic on DPP…….have I just put the mocker on them 🙂

  5. Who remembers the good ol’ days when you used to do a double downgrade and have 450k in the bank

    *stares at his team two trades burnt 170k in the kitty. Shakes head in disgust.

    1. Cash-cows are tough this year. Not only do you have to nail the right rookies on the rise, but also the right fallen premos on the rise.

  6. Hello SCT coaches,

    Once again I’ve turned to my SC family for their advice, opinions & most importantly their thumbs 😉

    T/U….Roughie out, JPK in by swinging Parfitt forward losing my dpp from mid/fwd & being forced to have 3 rookies on the ground ( Butler/ Houston / Parfitt ) & with no bench cover

    T/D….Roughie out / Lynch (GC) with 40 be or N Riewoldt in ( 157 be ) & with rookie bench cover

    Thanks SCT coaches

      1. Hence the post, not trusting my judgement ATM Leo!

        Made some terrible decisions so far this season, one was getting rid of a premium ( silly Catta 🙁 ) in Hanners after his terrible start to his season!

        1. I’d hate to say I told you so but….. I…

          I’d back one of the forwards above mate. Whoever you prefer out of the two and don’t think twice.

          Wait for Pendles and Dusty to complete your mids

          1. Yes very true Leo, I’m hearing you ….. face palm!

            Already got Pendles, Dusty in a few weeks now that I’ve decided on Lynch keeping me $$$$ in the bank. Also NRoo 157 be means potentially he’ll be much cheaper in the coming weeks, giving a bit more fattening time for the rookies

            Thanks SCT coaches, pretty convincing poll above.

            Cheers Catta

  7. Feeling like this week could be the turning point of the season, with bubble boys on the rise and few good cows to cull. Would appreciate some help on who to trade (Giving JOM and SPP another week) for Fisher.

    T/U Taranto
    T/D Parfitt

    10

    1
    1. Neither.

      Taranto has been rested and should play the next three to four games – expect him to get up over $300k.

      If Parfitt keeps scoring 50’s, he’ll make another $30-40k at least before his bye. He’s shown an ability to go bigger than that though, so a decent 70-90 point score will see a spike in value.

      Be patient with the playing rookies – you don’t need a full premo side by round 10.

  8. JOM + Pickett > Fisher & Balic. Leaves 307k in the kitty to go WHE > Buddy next week? Please answer as I’ve been staring at this all week

    1. If you’ve held onto O’Meara for the last two weeks you might want to hold onto him and give him another chance. BE of 58 so shouldn’t drop in price.

      1. Would you then suggest maybe Pickett+ Eddy > Balic & Fisher but have stunted money growth as an alternative?

  9. DOnt have a loop hole option so need to choose which three to field out of WHE, Butler, SPP, Balic & Houston. leaning towards sticking with WHE, Butler, Houston.

    1. Weather on Sunday looks clear, so WHE should perform better than last round. Is one of the few capable of going real big as well with a bag of goals.

      Butler has been consistent, as has Houston. SPP less so, and Balic has limited exposed form.

      WHE, Butler and Houston for me too.

  10. Vice captain choice both would go into Jelwood as captain
    I could also go Fyfe but not sold on him this week
    TU T.Mitchell
    TD Dahlhaus

  11. Roughead to Balic, Swallow to Fisher, leaving me with $540k to work with in the coming weeks
    OR
    Roughead to Balic, Swallow up to any premium

  12. Balic to come in but who to downgrade?

    UP – Eddy (BE -35 but has not played for weeks)
    DN – Taranto (BE 37)

    Comment – Swallow (BE 94 and rested)

    1. Jester I would do this order. Eddy, Swallow then Taranto.

      Eddy just not getting games. Swallow being rested so not essential to trade out this week if you have cover. Taranto playing and has an achievable B/E.

  13. Is it necessity to get Balic or can afford to miss out?

    T/U – Miss Balic & get Parsons next week
    T/D – Need both Balic & Parsons

  14. Considering the Pickett to Fisher trade.
    Is it really worth it???

    Thumbs up – do it – you need to generate cash anyway you can.

    Thumbs down – save a trade you’re only making 45k and Fisher isn’t worth it.

  15. Option A
    Roughy – balic @Thumbs up
    Taranto – hanners
    Or
    Option B
    Taranto – balic. @thumbs down
    Roughy – Toby Greene
    Cheers

  16. No question or quandary, I have made my bed and hence will lie in it.

    Just wanted give a shout out to Nath for his stats page, a great resource.

  17. Is Pickett to Fisher worth the trade? (Would have 23 trades left if I do this trade)

    T/U Definetly worth it

    T/U A pointless trade

  18. I have 4 non playing rookies in my team plus Turner. Want to get ride of one to get in Balic. Choices to trade out are Hibberd, Atley, Florent, Miles plus Turner. Was thinking Turner as he’s worth the most to help generate some cash, but he has a BE of 48 with an average of 54, and at least he’s still playing.
    TU : Trade out Hibberd or Atley
    TD : Florent or Miles
    Comment – Turner

  19. Brad Ebert is doubtful to play. Just checked and Eddy isn’t even listed as emergency, which is a bugger!
    Johnson may get his second game.

  20. Evening

    I have $157K in the bank and 1. Taranto, 2. SPP, 3. Parfitt, 4. Florent, 5. Hibberd, 6. Eddy and 7. Miles as possible trade options for Fisher/Balic.
    Needing to upgrade Roughie in the FWD so have options in FWD/MID

    Current thinking – Rookie (?) to Fisher, Roughie to Hanners

    I guess there are a couple of questions I am asking the community:
    a. Which rookie to go first?
    b. Roughie to Hanners or Buddy/Macrae?

  21. Question 1 – Did Brad Scott and Rocket Eade Skype each other mid week to arrange for both the Swallow boys to have the game off tomorrow night?

  22. TU|
    Swallow – bont
    Roughy- balic and play houston on the field

    TD
    Swallow-balic
    leave roughy for a week and catch some premiums with high breakevens on the downfall e.g dusty, pendles, bont

  23. Shaun Hampson is married to Megan Gale.
    Megan Gale recently announced they expecting a baby.
    Shaun Hampson has reinjured his back.

    Question 2 – Is this the first time a footy player has been out with shaggers back?

  24. Zorko/ L.”Little Fyfe”Neale /T.Mitchell then O.Wines.

    I’ve left my thoughts on Wines, on the Ideal Teams Mids thread.

    I seriously considered getting in Toby Greene this week.

    Thought better of it. I still think he may top score tonight.

    Personally I’m bringing in Harley B and Fisher.

    Time to bit the bullet and get some cash flowing.

  25. T/U Double downgrade – Taranto and Swallow to Balic and Fisher.

    T/D – Roughy and Swallow to J.Cameron and Fisher/Balic

    Currently 230.4k in the kitty.

    Hoping for a big double premo upgrade next week. Who are we liking out of Balic and Fisher too?

  26. Went double downgrade. Eddy to Balic and Barret to Fisher.

    $100k better off and ride the bubble.

    It’s a poor yield for 2 trades though.

    But maybe it will be enough to get an upgrade for Roughy to a Pendles/Dusty type next week.

  27. Similar theme to Andrew P above. Tossing up which two of Fisher, Balic and Hardwick to get today. Think Fisher is a must purely cause Bolts seems keen to play the kids. There seems a lot more love for Balic than Hardwick despite similar scoring and similar prices yet Balic had just missed a game with a hip. Can someone explain to me why there’s so much love for Balic and so little for Hardwick??
