Trade Talk R11

Written by Motts on June 4 2012

There were some stunning performances over the weekend. And some absolute shockers.

As we head into the first of the 3 bye rounds, will you be trading like crazy to stay competitive? Or will you be putting a lock on the T button and hoping for the best?

    Would like to trade Porps this week but cant see any downgrade targets to make some cash.

  3. I think with only 9 trades left I’ll sit tight and let the rest of the comp catch up…

    With Scotland out, Eski and Pendles in doubt you can just call me Krispy

  4. My team is hurting this week after Sunday shockers from Hargrave and Horsley (I just cannot get my on field rookie right!).

    My plan was to have no donuts this week but Scotland, Horse (will he be selected), Pendles, Shaw and did I hear right that Selwood tweeked his groin. I cannot cover that many outs. I hope Thursday has good news.My planning was near perfect but the next three weeks may well be a nightmare!

  5. No trades this week, don’t see the point of trading in someone who will miss r12 or r13

    The next 2 weeks are upgrade time. Hello Priddis (Conig/Greene/Horsely) and Cloke (Porp)

  7. Sitting tight for the first week. Pendles and Scotland likely to be out, but I can afford a few losses in all my leagues.

  8. No trades for me this week. Copping 4 donuts but as someone else has said, can’t see the point of putting someone in who’ll miss next week or the week after. Lack of downgrade options also pointing to no trading. Will definltely be going Priddis in for Magner next week though.

  9. No trading this week and was going to get 2 donuts but with Scotland/Shaw and possibly Selwood/Horse there may be more pain to come. Hopefully the others that I play against will be in similar situations and it will come down to a war of attrition and captain choices (of which I have completely f@#ked up to date).

  10. I’m considering a bit of a re-jig in the midfield.

    I had planned to use four trades over these three weeks and take four doughnuts across the three rounds. I am now considering using six and cutting it to three doughnuts, while making some cash.

    The way that I was going to finish my midfield was Horsely to Priddis in round 12, but I am considering this instead:
    -> Round 11 Rockliff to Jack;
    -> Round 12 Jack to Priddis;
    -> Round 13 Horsely to *last premium* (as yet, unselected, but say Watson)

    My thinking is this:
    -> I have been bit put off by the way the Rocky is scoring this year
    -> It will give me an extra week of Horsely price rising before his bye and
    -> I will make a bit of extra cash in the mean time with Jack sure to go up again

    Interested in people’s thoughts on this. I really hadn’t even been thinking about something like this, but definitely considering it.

    The opposing midfields would both contain:
    Pendlebury, Ablett, J Selwood, Dal Santo and Priddis.

    The positives would be about:
    -> About 110 points,
    -> No midfield doughnuts over the bye weeks (obviously selection permitting) and
    -> either a Swan, Watson or JP Kennedy instead of Rockliff.

    The negative is obviously two extra trades.

    So, good idea?

  11. May sound absolutely absurd, but seriously considering jack watts over the next 3-4 weeks. Great POD, has some some glimpses, has down games, but then again who doesn’t have down games. The reason why over the next 3-4 weeks is to see if there is consistency, and if he will stay in the back-line. Any thoughts? 3 Round average is 113.

  12. What Do people think about Elliott as a downgrade option?. I can fit him in easily and save a donut as well as upgrade smith to Cloke.

    Thoughts please?

  13. Everyone seems concerned about not trading when your player is going to miss a week. If every player is going to miss a week, then this round is the best week to trade so that every player is going to miss a week. Time to upgrade / downgrade some GWS max outs if you ask me. Especially with Sam Mitchell, and Marley williams on offer. Either way you are going to have players miss out on each week. So not trading because of the byes is just as silly as trading because of the byes, unless you have a clear plan to lower exposure. Me, I have a full side this week, going ->

    J Mac -> Marley Williams
    D Smith -> S Mitchell

    I had to trade J Mac, as he will continue to miss games and already have Kerrige on the bench not scoring, and anticipating that marley won’t play everyweek so time to take my chips and run with J Mac.

  14. No trades hopefully but depends on Pendles…squeeze through the next 2 weeks with a couple of normal upgrades with a little plan to take a dive in round 13 with about 15 not playing.

  16. I have been lucky enough to avoid the injury curse so far this year (except for Fyfe early on) but I knew it was too good to last. And after all my hard work to set my team up right to only have 1 or max. 3 donuts in each week of the bye rounds, that has all gone down the toilet now thanks to injuries to Shaw, Scotland and Pendlebury. Hope Redden, Smedts and Hall all get games again this week. But I will be trading like crazy – 17 left so let’s get trigger happy!

  17. What are everyone’s thoughts on Priddis. he is very cheap at the moment after being KO’d against essendon (only scored 20 odd). In his other 7 games he has knocked up 6 tons and would be averaging well over a hundred if wasn’t KO’d against essendon. I’m thinking of getting him in after West Coasts bye this week.

  19. If a player with a round 11 bye eg: J.Cameron (GWS) has a BE of -13 for this round, will he still have that same BE for round 12? Or will it go up or down? Cheers guys ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. after last wkd i am nearly ready to throw in the towel….kruezer late withdrawl = 0, malceski, shaw = 0….scotland = inj..horsely, smith, jmac = SH*TE…then.had daisy locked and loaded into my team and planned on slappin the C on him to earn his stripes….had a change of heart and went J selwood instead only to find out he injures himslef, scores SH*TE, and daisy tears GC a new one….bottom line is 2012 SC can neck a fat one.

    somehow stil scored 2000 and get a W…but its not good for the stress levels…and to top it all off i lasted 5 mins in my own footy game and need a 2nd knee reco…FML

  21. what does everyone think of j.elliot and his JS..
    I can go
    tomlinson – elliot (270k in bank + he is on the bubble + only 3 zeros if he plays)
    only 10 trades left after that.
    Thumbs up – good idea, save the zero and ditch tomlinson
    Thumbs down – bad idea, save the trade and take the extra zero..

  22. I need some help.

    Ranked 758 overall, should I still be gunning for overall (particularly if I navigate the byes well)? I only have 11 trades to start with this week.

    If so, I’m thinking of trading Enright and Cloke (check out his scores from R10-23 last year after three bad weeks before that) for Scotland and Bugg; Priddis for Masten and Adcock for Clarke after R11 (plus one massive downgrade, probably Porps down to a rookie if possible, I have Smedts so could be a forward or defender); then Hayes up to Pendlebury after R12. Assuming there’s no outs (I had all 30 playing last round), I’d have 21 playing in R11, 20 in R12 and 20 in R13. Team would end up looking like this:

    Deledio, Goddard, Broughton, Enright, Adcock, Lake, Darley, Smedts, Ellis
    Ablett, Pendlebury, Watson, J Selwood, Dal Santo, Priddis, McDonald, Adams
    Cox, Giles, Stephenson, Redden
    Franklin, N Riewoldt, Stevie J, Zaharakis, Robinson, Martin, Cloke, Zorko, (yet to be determined rookie)

    It would really only require one premium upgrade in defence from there, but I’d only have 5 trades left. If it’s not worth going for overall, I’ll hold on to Scotland and Clarke, and probably won’t do the Bugg to Cloke trade (by moving Smedts to defence) as I feel like I need at least one of Sidebottom or Dangerfield. I’ll easily make finals in both of my leagues so that’s not an issue.

  23. Forgetting the byes, just throwing some of my trade ideas up in the air:- Part 1:-

    Trade Giles + 100K for Sandi. Would leave me with Cox & Sandi as prem rucks, Redden & DPP spud on bench with addition of Hale in forwards as cover.

    Thumbs UP: – Good trade. Should ave 20 more points than Giles from here
    Thumbs DOWN: Bad trade. Sandi is still still an injury concern.

  24. Looking at the highest scoring teams for the round number three is called ‘My Mob’

    Overall 194,000
    Average: 1800
    Total points: 18,000

    Have a look at his team, got some very unusual selections and doesn’t have many of the really popular big guns, full of POD’s many aren’t really supercoach relevant players. really goes to show anyone with a bit of luck can be high on the weekly rankings and score well.

  25. Trade Option Part 2: –

    Thumbs UP: Trade out Porps + 30K to Cloke. Should ave 20+ more & higher upside.

    Thumbs DOWN: – Don’t trade for Cloke even though cheap.

    0

    0
  26. Trade Option Part 3: –

    Thumbs UP: – Hayden Crozier in with Horse out. Taking JS chance, but M/F rookie DPP handy, Horse’s sub score limits price gain & 220K will allow Priddis in Rnd 12

    Thumbs DOWN: – Go straight from Horse to Priddis next week after generating cash elsehwere. Then pick up Crozier Rnd 13 if named when on the bubble.

  27. Way left field but what do you think of
    D. Nicholson from Melbourne on the bubble. High price 2nd yr Rookie but looking at a better option then Hunt as a D7 as a POD

  43. I thought I had set up pretty well for the bye weeks, then Pendles, Lewis and Parker go down leaving me in a real problem. Parker’s out for 6-8 with a collar bone so trading him is a necessity. I was planning on trading him next week to a supercheap Priddis, but that would leave me with multiple doughnuts (not “donuts”) this week.
    My mids currently sit at:
    GAJ, Selwood, Swallow, PARKER, Horsely, Zorko (PENDLEBURY, SHEIL)

    I’m completely stumped on what to do. My plan was to next week go Parker —> Priddis then Horsely —> JPK the week after, but as you can see, that would cause some serious short term pain.
    Thoughts on what I should do? I’m struggling…

  44. Hey guys.
    At the start of the year i helped m mum (55) make a team. I basically only helped her with rookie players but she put her own favourite players in. She is absolutely dominating now. Tell me what you think of this team!

    Backs: Goddard, Deledio, Waters, Lake, Marty Clarke, Dempsey, Darely, Ellis

    Mids: Pendlebury, Watson, Hayes, Abblett, Thompson, Horsley, Old McDonald, T Adams

    Rucks: Giles, Kruezer, McIntosh, Redden

    Fowards: N Riewoldt, Danderfield, Sidebottom, Chapman, Franklin, Betts, Hall, Folau

    Now she still has 10 trades and $387,000 left in the bank.
    Also has 14 players averaging over 100
    She is thinking of trading in (after this round) Priddis for Horsley and Sandilands for McIntosh.
    Any rookies you guys can suggest to make a little bit more money for her?

  45. What should I do with the ruck situation?
    I have managed to ride the mummy on the bench with Nic Nat and Giles
    carrying me. The question is giles is now so good that do I cash in on the mummy or giles? If the mummy comes good he will be a weapon.

  46. Who is a better pick-up following this weeks bye round?
    THUMBS UP – Priddis
    THUMBS DOWN – Scott Thompson
    I will either get Priddis after this week, or wait a few more weeks for Thompson to drop in price. Can’t get both. Which will be the better player for the rest of the season?

  48. I have a dilemna! C Pearce is bleeding money and I am having a hard time justifying keeping him, if I hang on another week I lose another 30K, even though it appears to be burning a trade at the worst time I feel I’m better trading him for Stevie J or Rory Sloan. Thoughts?

  49. Thinking about bringing in my 7th premium into the forward line
    Already have Buddy, Sidebum, Chapman, Lewis, Martin and Dangerfield.
    Want to trade Porplayzia up, but don’t know who to.

    Thinking Cloke, but is that too much of a risk?

  50. Thanks Fishtopher and Max.
    Leaning toward Cloke at this stage, he is just too cheap to resist I think. Beams would be good but is a little out of my price range.

  51. As well as doughnuts galore i’ve also got Scotland, Shaw and Lewis all on the pine adding further to my pain.

    Going to sideways trade one of them, probably Lewis, but geez this SC caper is getting difficult this season.
