Monday Morning Analysis

Written by Motts on May 9 2011

I’m already planning my trades this week. With a 30 on Saturday, Benny McGlynn’s days are numbered. They guy just can’t cop a tag. Who’s already on the block for you? And who are you superhappy with?

  4. Duigan has reached his peak so he will go this week. Thinking Hibberd might come in this week. Smith may come in for Lib or Conca. 22 trades left. 1700 overall. Pretty happy

  5. Very happy with Tapscott, Lower and zac Smith. Agree with backline. Horrible. Very hard this year.

  6. The plan was to bring in Hibberd this week after playing two games. Now, thats up in the air. Still need to chop Duigan though to free up some cash.

  7. Happy with how the boys have rebounded from the pathetic score last week. Sitting on 1916 with Gibbs, God, Curnow, Riewolt to play.

    Good – Lids, Boyd, Heppel, Harris, Selwood, Cox, Sandi (capt) Franklin, Goodes, Tapscott, Petrie

    Not so good – Broughton, Chappy

    See u later – Grimes

  8. On the block…. me! I guess there could be worse problems to have but I have Matera and Tapscott sitting on the pine whilst Knights and Darling stink it up!
    Sandi not letting me down as captain!
    Burgoyne… he would want to start producing some 100’s sometime in the near future, my policy of not trading out premiums unless LTI is being seriously tested!
    The curse… traded in Priddis for KoJack but blow me down he produces a rare sub 100 score

  9. The weekend started beautifully then it all came crashing down on sunday!

    Grimes, Dangerfield, Knights and Thompson all combined got me 152.

    Shattered. Currently on 1775 with 4 to play. Godds, Gibbs, Curnow and Volt.

    Hopefully get 2100+ but not happy with that this week. Everyone else is getting 2300+!!

    Going to be moving waaaaaaaaaaay down in the overall rankings. Still gonna win 4 / 5 of my league matches. including SCT1 league where i am playing Duck!

  10. Contemplating trading the following:
    > Gibbs …. pull your finger out tonight please Bryce
    > Broughton …. Greg, can you please read what i just said about Bryce
    > Grimes …. similar sentiment to Bryce and Greg but chuck in a possible LTI
    > Otten ….

    Hate sideways trades but may not have an option on a few of these underperforming defenders. Would much rather focus my energies on upgrades into uber premiums in the mids and fwds.

  11. 1829 with 5 to go.

    Happy – bring in Sandi with the big C, Jobe,

    Chopping block – Knights Broughton Burgoyne

    First 2 trades this week Smith for higgins then Sandi for Jolly. pretty happy about those 2

  13. Made four trades to strengthen the structure by bringing in Swan & Mundy over the last fortnight, so I am not particularly looking to trade this week.
    Will assess the Grimes situation, and the b/e’s before making a further decision. Hope Delicious returns this week and I don’t like Monday football.

  14. No one really in the gun, just pissed at bad luck with Grimey. Have Broughton as well, but seriously he’s ave is ~90. You’re kidding yourself if you were expecting too much more from a backman. I expected 95 as a pass so he’s not too far off. When Silvagni comes back he’ll get freed up.

    +cock will come in for if he is out for more than 3.

  15. Not happy with Grimes and Broughton.

    For rookies, got Luke Thompson this week @ 180k, and he produces a 50 score. FMSC.

  16. 1772/4/Bartel

    (Gibbs, Goddard, Curnow & Riewoldt to come)

    Major Vent: Not going with my gut and picking Sandilands as Captain
    Major Blows: Grimes (of course, had Lower as Emergency cover), Duffield’s 47 hurts, as does Knights’ 32 (had Matera as Emergency cover).

    All things considered though, a score of about 2,100 wouldn’t be horrible for the round.

  17. Got smashed this week.. Pendlezs, swan, krak and libber already out then add stevie j at the last minute was already on a donut. Then grimes and knights stinking it up didn’t help. Oh well from 1200 overall to reality! What is everyone doing grimes.

  18. 1850/4/Selwood, reasonably happy so far. Wasn’t expecting a great week this week I’m carrying Higgins, Rioli, Libba and Swan on the bench. Looking to bring in a couple more premiums next week, thinking Pendles is a must

  19. Sitting on 1711 but that should be 1813 with Isaac Smith’s 102 as emergency for the non-playing Gamble. Traded out N. Riewoldt and Missy for Mundy and Chapman. Mundy fired, Chappy did not. Not happy Chappy!

    Happy with Sandi’s first run as captain, Smith on debut was awesome, Mundy, Boyd and Jamar upheld their end of the bargain. My money makers keep on producing the goods (Smith, Petrie, Shiels, Harris, Tapscott, Matera and Lower) and Hurley finally showed something.

    Not impressed with Knights, & Grimes and Dangerfield both being subbed off in the same game hurt big time. Basically my whole forward line is falling apart at the seams!

    Gamble, Menzel, Knights and Otten are on the chopping block. Will give Richardson a bit more time to redeem himself.

  20. pretty happy overall, 2100 with Gibbs and curnow to play. With Missy, delicious, suckling and pendles all on the bench I am looking to see what I can pull with a healthy 22. Plus $625k in the bank makes me happy. Only real concern is how grimes will pull up.

  21. Duigan gone this week maybe bring in lids and of course I have broughton and grimes. Couldn’t be happier with Sylvia though definetely helped me out of a jam

  22. Anyone thinking of trading in Swan in not this week but next? Even with a big score he’ll drop in price to around $555k!

  24. 1991 with 5 left.

  25. Jack Trengove has been offered a 2 match suspension.

    “Trengove was charged with a level three engaging in rough conduct offence against Adelaide’s Patrick Dangerfield in the third quarter of Melbourne’s win on Sunday.”

  26. For a win in LoEC, I need McEvoy to get about 80 or so for the win.

    Hoping to get around 2100 for the round, but if NVoldt and Gibbs do nothing, then will be mighty tough. Sitting on 1740 odd with 4 to come. The other player is Goddard.

    On another note, my move to dump Johncock a few weeks back looks to be a good call. Will look to expunge all crow players from the team now.

  27. My team is currently (at best)
    B- Gibbs, Deledio, H.Shaw, Grimes, Adcock, Duffield, Heppell
    (Otten, Lower, Stanley)

    C- Swan, Goddard, Selwood, Cotchin, Swallow, Pittard
    (Harris, Bewick, Iles)

    R- Sandilands, Cox
    (Smith, Moran)

    F- Franklin, Goodes, N.Riewoldt, J.Riewoldt, Petrie, Yarran, Krakouer
    (Darling, Richardson, Matera)

    I’m thinking over the next few weeks

    This week
    Yarran, Pittard ————> Gilbert, Jacobs

    Round 9
    Harris, Petrie —————–> I.Smith, Didak

    Round 10
    D.Swallow —————-> G.Ablett Jnr

    To give me a team at roun 10 of

    B- Gibbs, Deledio, H.Shaw, Grimes, Adcock, Duffield, Heppell
    (Otten, Lower, Stanley)

    C- Swan, Goddard, Selwood, Ablett, Cotchin, Jacobs
    (I.Smith, Bewick, Iles)

    R- Sandilands, Cox
    (Smith, Moran)

    F- Franklin, Goodes, N.Riewoldt, J.Riewoldt, Didak, Gilbert, Krakouer
    (Darling, Richardson, Matera)

  28. soo grimes possibly gone for the season..
    my plans were to put mundy in this week and take curnow out, but with the grimes incident, do i spend the money there instead?

  29. Anyone know where we can get a reasonably accurate estimate of what Grimes’ price will be after this week. I don’t do patience very well!

  30. GRIMES AAARRRRGGGHHH!!!!! FFS!! Jack last week, now Grimes.
    SC Gods owe me big time (that means Judd to score 137+ and beat Montagna by 28 points tonight).

    Will do some analysis later in the week, but at the moment trades for Rd 8 I’m thinking:

    Grimey >> +cock.
    Iron Man >> I.Smith

    The Smith trade will free up my forward bench as Heppell will move into the backs to cover the Bee Gees, Chapman will move into mids and one of Petrie/Krakouer will come into play.

    The quality backmen pool just got thinner.

  31. Grimes options – Heath Shaw, Newman, Broughton (when his BE comes lower) or can Johncock get back to some form? Safe bet im thinking is Shaw

    0

    0
  32. Dammit Grimes. All the best with the recovery. Hopefully doesn’t end his career like Egan.
    What to do with him though? Delidio seems obvious if you have the cash. But for me, I already have Newman and Jumping Jack. Is it too much to have 3 premiums from the one team? Sam Fisher looks like the only improving Saint. Could be on the cards.
    Decisions, decisions.

  35. What’s wrong with dal santo? He hasn’t touched it all quarter… I need him to get 70 + to win…

  36. If i trade pendles and shaw in this week, is 3 collingwood guns really bad?

    Thumbs up- its fine

    Thumbs down- 3 guns from collingwood is too many

    I also have a quite easy opponent in my main league in round 13

  38. Supercoach is killing me but Carlton winning makes me happy!!

    Grimes out for season and then now curnow! I shouldnt complain i have been pertty lucky so far this season. But this weekend has really hurt. More so with everyone else scoring MASSIVELY ๐Ÿ™

  39. Ended up with 2205

    Grimes and Curnow really hurt

    Roo and God…..you’re killing me

    Welcome back Gibbs…sort of…

    Some hard decisions to be made next week. Grimes to Lids,+cock? Wanted to get in Swan but may have to wait a week now. Thank god Missy will be back in the fold and which cow will I cash…Curnow?

    Decisions, decisions.

    Not bad considering both Grimes & Curnow went down in the first quarter for a combined total of 26. Very happy with Sandi as captain, Mundy on debut. Swan, AKrak & Penders to come back in, hopefully with Delicious and maybe Heater??? Can’t wait for friday nights game!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  41. 2239.

    Happy with that except the obvious pain of Curnow. Thought Enright, Toy & Embles could have stepped up a little too.

    Contemplating Swallow out Pav in next week – thumbs up/down?

  42. 2105

    Grimes and Curnow leave me wondering what might have been.

    Should have had more faith in Duigan. He’s almost a keeper in a backline that just has no backbone. He is resolute in defence, calm, decisive, solid!!

    Only others to whinge about; Broughton, Goddamnit, Revolting.

    I’m tipping the Suns for a massive upset over Adelaide next week.

  43. 2112. Lost a game against my rival in one of my leagues by 10 points after being well clear coming into the last game, blamed solely on the bad luck of Curnow getting injured early.

  44. 2151…. Not bad with grimes/curnow & and stevie j not playin…. I’m dark I went with buddy as cap not the big man!!! Shaw in 4 grimes this week???

  45. 2059

    3 injuries … Curnow – 12, Grimes – 14, Dangerfield – 52
    Disappointed … Goddard, Broughton, Priddis, A Swallow, Riewoldt (although i thought his game was better than 63pts), Darling, Knights
    So glad i picked Sandi as captain or i’d have spudded it up even more so.

    Friday / Saturday was SC gold!!
    Sunday / Monday was SC misery!!

    Now have two season ending LTI in defence (Grimes and Lester).

    Grrrrrrrrr!!!!!

  46. 2053 – More than enough centurions on the pine plus Duigan so not all is lost.

    Hoping the intended strategy of moving in rookies for Curnow and Grimes concurrently will pay off.

    Will need to have some patience with Riewoldt and Goddard I feel… no choice but to back Duigan for a while longer also regardless of the bye. Happy that he cracked his breakeven!

    Praying that a combination of Pedersen, Hibberd, Smith, Puopolo and Liberatore are all in the mix for selection next weekend!

    Bit more value on the bubble this week which is handy!

  47. What exactly does BE mean?

    If a player has a BE of say 100 and he nails exactly 100, does that mean he will:
    a) stay the same price as he is at the moment (break even for the week)
    b) go back up to his original price (break even for the year to date)
    c) get some other random price decided by a fantasy algorithm that no human can possibly understand or calculate?

  48. 2123/Joelwood/Grimes

    First of all, feel for those with Grimey. Feel even more for those with Grimey and Curnow. For those who had Grimey, Curnow and Danger – calmly walk over to drinks bar; open up a bottle of scotch; pour yourself a glass; and scull. Repeat if necesary.

    Now to vent!! Lost in the LoEC and and my cash league (Grimey cost me) by 37 and 35 popints respectively. On the plus side I won my who gives a fat rats clacker league by 300+ points!!

    Positives: Lids, Heppell, Ward, Joelwood, Massive, Pav, Buddy, Goodesy, Tappy.
    Negatives: BJ, Goldstein, Roo, Grimey, Judd (needed 137 from tonight from the champ to win both leagues), Chappy (poor debut), Darling (considering i benched Droopy/Matera).

    Trades this week, reckon it will be along the lines of Grimey >> +cock, and Iron Man >> I.Smith.

    Wow, that actually feels better!

  49. 2344 – freakin’ stoked after all the big tease of the start of the round and the dramas of the last two days.

    Was damn lucky with Lids, Lower, Bud, Tappy and Matera digging for spuds early but coming good.

    Copped Grimeys but so did everyone and am happy for the first time all year to not have Curnow.

    Anyone know when the rankings normally come up? Dropped just out of the top 1000 last week and am hoping for for a big jump back in after sneaking a big score in what could possibly be an average week.

  51. 2065

    I wasn’t too unhappy with my score, wasn’t great but wasn’t dreadful. Only disappointments were voldt, gods, curnow, grimey, knights, broughton (actually they’re starting to add up now I think about it). I had an ineresting round, in one league I got pumped by almost 500 points, up against muggers marvels (2533, ranked 2nd weekly). And I had my first ever draw in another league.

    0

  52. 2092. Disappointed. Though I did improve the overall ranking by a couple of thousand (still shit though). A few too many mediocre scores from the liked of N Riewoldt, Hurn, Broughton etc.

    Happy with Sandi, Massive, Selwood, Sylvia, Buddy, Harris and Petrie. Aside from that there’s not too much to shout about. I’ve got a truckload of cash in the bank, so I’m thinking that this week might see:

    Grimes to Deledio, Enright, Newman or Adcock
    Knights to Pav, Chappy, Fyfe or Goodes

    Decisions decisions.

  53. 2225 and losing in sct2 to the angus and the Q-tips if only curnow had got his average I also had grimes and broughton to annoy me with matera and duigan on the bench costing me. Saying this though I moved up to 164 overall any chance of a poll to see how everyone is doing overall in the rankings.

  54. Tell me if I’m crazy, or if it has already been mentioned, but I’m considering Brady Rawlings as a direct swap for Grimes.

    Pros: Cheap ($381k), durable (has only missed two games in five seasons) and has a good history (averaged 97 last year). There’s also a lack of backline premiums this season and he’d be a bit of a point of difference.

    Cons: Plays for a bottom eight team, fairly old (turns 30 in June) and has a bye come finals time.

    Thoughts?

  55. Grrrr… bad captain choice, Curnow, Grimes … all led me to a league loss by a couple of points and a draw. FMSCT!!

    Goddard and the Voldt both looking pathetic. At least Broughton should come good when Freo’s injury list is reduced a little and he has a bit more freedom. Seriously, my team needs a good talking to.

  56. 2354, couldn’t be happier. Dodged the Curnow bullet, but Grimes is an issue.

    What are the upgrade targets?

  57. I just read in the Hun that Curnow has a 4 week injury. Given that one of those weeks is a bye, it is a three week absence, or maybe even 2, if he comes back a week early. Thinking about keeping him instead of burning a trade. Anyone else thinking about keeping him?

    had him from the word go and been patient.
    Now lost a lot of money, and im sure im not the only one!
    Is everyone axing him or sticking with patience?

  61. What a ride this rollercoaster round 7 has provided!

    All league games would have been close….especially if your opponent had Grimes & you had Curnow (speakin of Chilli Con Curnow….he owes me money for makin me break my missus’ TV remote)

    Trades hafta be made but do you go for a ready made player or cash up & take the rookie? Tough call. Gettin Paul Poo Poo or i. smith right now would be like randomly pickin up a hooker & not using a condom….who the f*** knows what your gonna get? i’ve got my eyes firmly on the street corner lookin at supercoach wang teases O’Keefe FWD/MID ($403,300), Hodge MID ($468,900), Shaw DEF ($450,200) & Adcock DEF ($461,400)….if you can afford the upgrade.

    On the topic of teases, is Daniel Kerr the biggest tease of all?
    Will i be drawn in with his seductive flirting? (avg 83.6/$331,800), then when i finally get him into my bed (my team) i get herpes the next day (injury).

    decisions, decisions.

    Happy with my score of 2300 (despite curnow shoulder pop) & was able to get close to the top ten overall (13)…..one of my goals if i ever got this far was to at least get my name in the herald sun…i’d be happy with that if it went downhill from then on.

    Good luck this round boys (overall & league) :)…..gonna be a doozy.

  63. 2138/Bartel

    missed Smith’s 102 as he was busy warming my bench. As was Duigan. WHAT THE??

    not happy with Richardson and Prestia, already given Prestia the boot (hoping I don’t live to regret it!) Cam you are in the firing line….

    won all 5 leagues, and tipped 5. I am on 41 for the year.
