  1. Having trouble deciding which mid rook with similar BE’s should be the first to trade out, between Brayshaw, LDU etc, as I’m unsure about JS, upside etc. A poll would be helpful.

    1. Surely LDU has to be on the chopping block this week unless there’s any signs he’s going to improve. With his average he’s going to lose money.

  2. Is Coniglio the real deal, top 8 mid.

    And considering his current price, should you be planning to bringing him in now rather than later if it’s an upgrade (not sideways)

  3. Which is a more important trade priority this week. Kreuzer OR Billings. Who are good trade in options for Billings if I trade out Kreuzer to Grundy as well I will have only 64k. Who are good trade in options from 515k and under?

  4. Time to pull the pin on Hibberd? And Billings as mentioned above.
    And would love to see within our SCT coaches their overall positions after 4 rounds, ie. top 500, top 1000, top 5000, top 10,000….

  5. Ruck Troubles. Namely Goldy, Kreuz. And best options.

    Also love the teams thoughts on if Grundy is the real deal. We call said he was going to be affected by Cox in the preseason. Not correct right now but can it swing back?

      1. I switched to Titch…….dusty 141-titch 90, doubled is 102. I meant to say titch, not fyfe…still would have been down 80 odd with fyfe.

        1. Actually only cost 51 points. Since you had both of them anyway, the extra score for Dusty captain is only 51 (141-90)

          1. Wighty is correct.
            If he had dusty captain thats (141+141=282) but he had mitchell as captain (90+90=180) Therefor a loss of 102 points.

            1. Chonkers is right I’m afraid.
              Dusty (C) = 141+141+90 = 372
              Mitchell (C) = 90+90+141 = 321
              Diff is only 51 since you still get the single score of your non-captain. Hope that makes everyone feel a bit better. I know it did me.

  6. Has the game changed this year?
    Aggressively sideways trading premiums is legitimately the way to go.
    No not at all bar a couple of exceptions it’s still the same hold trades for later on make up points then when everyone else fields donuts.

    1. Game has not changed and aggressively trading premos is not ideal (unless your i n serious contention for the top 10)

      I think we have just mis-judged some premium picks this year or have been unlucky with injuries or poor form resulting in people cutting lose (example include injuries such as crouch or possible role changes like hibberd or just flat out under performers like a Billings now)

      In my opinion if you just play for leagues you are better off looking to conserve trades so to speak. But if your going for overall people might look to be more aggressive as you say.

    1. 1. Hold. I’m sure Father M would remind you its a sin to sideways trade a gun. Zerrett the latest example. I actually have Billings on my radar for an upgrade.

      2. Dusty. Do you have neither ? Something doesn’t look right with Danger, or is that just me eyeing him at 600k ??

      1. Watched his first 2 and caught glimpses on the weekend. Something just doesn’t look right.

        Looking at his stats compared to last year he’s averaging the same amount of disposals and kicking it twice more a game but laying on average 2 less tackles and 1.2 goals less a game. Marks have dropped by 2 but he’s averaging 4 less contested possessions a game with 7% less disposal efficiency which will be hurting him.

        Once a few of those are reverted he’ll go back to 130+ but will keep an eye on him over the next few weeks. Only 2 more premo spots in my midfield and he will be getting one of them.

        1. Sounds like he is carrying an injury “Patrick Dangerfield finished the match with ice on his left calf in what is likely just a precaution” – AFL web site.

  7. Corrective trading, has it been a success thus far or a flop? Or is it too early to tell?
    Acres ave 92 since I brought him for Christensen ave 90.rnds 2,3 and 4.
    Hibberd (78) for Bonner (68)
    And they were just the good trades!!

    1. This would make for a great Poll.

      I would also like to look at strategies up to the byes, though I’m unsure how to frame a Poll on this.

      btw I am NOT doing any more corrective trades (until next week!). Just concentrating on cow management for the next few weeks, with only 6 on-field premos required. Identified 3 (Danger plus 2) that I definitely want and have shortlisted the rest (though constantly editing these). With Danger’s poor score this week and BE at 209, I see him dropping for two more weeks at least (hopefully 3 as I’ll be able to pick him up then).
      Zerrett looks like another who is a few weeks away at least from minimum price. Paddy will drop when he’s back too after his injury-effected score so will have time to assess before taking the plunge. Simpson and Hurley should both fall a bit too. Hibberd might get his favoured role back if Dees continue to underperform. The list and opportunities goes on and on.

      Am very excited as I’m averaging about 350/week more than I ever have this early in the season and still have 25 trades left.

      That is ALL thanks to stumbling across this awesome SCT forum. Thanks to all. Long may the fun continue. Though it should probably come with a health-warning 😉

    1. We need to know when he’s likely to be back first. Hopefully we’ll get some more definitive/positive news this week.
      Though given they’ve got my clueless Saints this week, they’ll probably give him another week even if he is ready. That said, we tend to go OK against GWS. Not this time sadly.

  8. T/U: Hold Michael Hibberd with faith that he can be a top 10 defender by Round 20?

    T/D: Sideways trade and roll the dice on someone else?

  9. I think most people have given up on hibberd now, theres enough evidence to say he is this years shaw so instead of another poll about whether to keep or trade him can we get a poll of best options to swap him to?
    Personally im tossing up between the reliable but more expensive options in hurley and simpson vs the slightly cheaper but riskier picks in yeo and savage. Leaning to yeo or hurley though.

  10. My most important issue now isn’t a poll, rather it’s having a structure in place around trading out cash cows (when/how many); then if I replace with more cash cows or promos (money vs points). Is there a guru out there who has this puzzled out ?

    1. That’s a really tough one………
      Some Coaches trade a cow out a week or two early to get a fallen premium quicker. Others like to wait until the Bye Rounds before making too many moves on cows. It’s good to get a feel of which rookies are coming up to play and those that are peaking/near peak when others are on the bubble. Lot of guess work, coupled with lots of rough planning using the BreakEvens & Cow Talk…….

  11. Can we get a poll on how many “premos” (yes Billings counts) everyone has in their team? I’m seeing some stark differences between some teams with very few premo spots left and others like THE TEAM that has a few more. Is there really that much difference this early in the season?
