Welcome back to the TEAM for 2019! Where the entire SCT Community can shape the course of the TEAM………
ROUND EIGHT SUMMARY
After the double downgrade last week, we were able to hold our position in the Rankings but got smashed in our League games. We were unlucky to have Atkins on the field with his 12pts, but couldn’t complain too much.
With any luck Whitfield comes back in this week, he’s been sorely missed. As I said above, we went through the double downgrade last week and now we have over $300k in the bank and still 24 (!) trades in hand.
There’s been plenty of talk about this years Rising Star (shoe-in…..change my mind!), Walsh of Carlton in the Trade Talk threads. I’m of the opinion that he’s done his job for Supercoaches everywhere and it’s the perfect time to cash him in for an elite MID (Fyfe, J.Kelly, Bont, Merrett) before he drops further towards $400k. I’ve searched for a 2nd upgrade but can’t find a viable trade.
Either we use just the one trade this week or downgrade to Hately or Stocker (which I’m not too keen on tbh). The trade ideas need to be run by our Coaching Staff as always. So enter your trade suggestions into the comments below. Polls will be up after the teams are announced on Thursday night. That depends on their popularity with the Thumbs UP/DOWN from the Coaching Staff, of course. Let’s hear it, Coaches……..
**Didn’t get time to make a video this week. They might still make it for future team posts or strategy purposes**
