Trade Talk R16, 2014

Written by Motts on June 30 2014

How’s your trades situation? Still got some to burn before Finals? Are you planning on dropping a couple this week?

If so, who’ll be getting a Gatorade drenching at the end of this round with your boys and who’s heading back to the Magoos?

  1. Looking at Hallahan & Derrickx out for Parker & Ben Brown (link with S.Martin)

    Two queries: –
    1) Is Hallahan half a sniff of a game now that a spot has opened up with Cyril out – or would S.Mitchell just come in & they move the chess pieces about?
    2) Is Ben Brown of North likely to get another game this year due to his one kick, tackle & mark game v Brisbane (only seen the stats & not the game).

    Other option is to go Hallahan & Ambrose out for Parker & Honeychurch. However like the fact that Ambrose has decent JS & could wait a week or more for downgrade to Honeychurch (F8 is C.Cameron who will take a couple of weeks to get back into Crows).

  2. S. Martin’s scores are too good to ignore. Plus most of my league opponents have him. Is he worth trading in as f6?

    Up – bring him in
    Down – pass. He will not maintain these high scores.

  3. Downgrade target…

    Up – Kersten. He will get regular games. Will not be sub.
    Down – Honeychurch next week. Valuable dpp. Decent js.

  4. I know we all saw what Cotchin did this weekend, but if you get the pill 30 times and still can’t raise the bat….you know who I’m talking about.

  6. My dilemma.
    217k in bank. 9 Trades Left.
    Higgins & Langdon left to upgrade. Bews back cover, Honeychurch fwd cover.

    Thumbs Up – Higgins > Parker. Langdon > Hibberd

    Thumbs Down – Higgins > Parker. Hold Langdon trade off until Mitchell comes back and drops in price.

    Comment – Do something different..

  7. What to do with Pav and Wingard?
    Have 6 trades left, $196k in the bank.

    T/U: Trade both to Parker and Buddy/Gray, full premo, $30k kitty, 4 trades for finals.
    T/D: Hold onto trades and hope they come good.
    Comment: Any other options.

    Any help would be appreciated, just going for a league win. 5-0 the last 5 weeks.

  8. Still got 9 left and a fully upgraded team, but have Swannie on field as f8 stinking it up, while I miss JPK and Fyfe killing it.
    TU: cash in Ambrose and Shenton and get Kersten and JPK/Fyfe
    TD: hold the 9 trades and the massive advantage that comes with that at SC finals
    Note. Only care about a cash league win, where I sit 5th (on percentage)

  10. Jaensch > Mcveigh
    Mcgovern > Kersten

    Leaving me 150k to upgrade billings to a fallen premium midfielder at 500k next week

    my backline would then be

    Mcveigh
    Hanley
    Malcheski
    Bartel
    Swallow
    Simpson

  11. Only 5 trades left. I’ll be looking at Simpson in a week or two so I can bench Jaensch. SMartin to boomer in a couple aswell and I bench wingard

  12. I Just wanted to give a big thanks to everyone in the SCT community.
    Asked for some advice about trading in Stevie J or Fyfe 2 weeks ago and was given a big thumbs up to trade in Fyfe. Also brought in Martin the same week. Fyfe has delivered scores of 143 and 158 and Martin 95 and 133. Going for a league win, but now sit inside the top 400 overall as a bonus. Again, a big thanks to everyone, especially those regulars that contribute to all parts of the site

  14. T/U: one trade of Shenton to Sloane
    or
    T/D: burn another trade to get cash to go Shenton to JPK (eg. Langford to Jones or Lloyd to Kersten)

  15. Not sure why everyone is so high on Sam Mitchell. Like swallow when he came back i think Mitchell will be subbed early and rested often. Can even see him missing a couple of matches as a precaution (Hawks always do it). Simpson a safer option IMO

  16. 2 Trades this week I think.

    L. Mcdonald to Z.Jones and P. Ambrose to Steve Johnson.

    T/U – good trades

    T/D – you could do better

  17. Currently 6 trades left with only $9,600 in the bank.

    Thinking of doing an upgrade and downgrade this week.

    Shenton > Honeychurch
    Tex Walker > Buddy or Parker

    Could do Higgins instead of Walker.
    Thoughts?

  18. Was all set to grab Rockliff because he has such a high ceiling but Stevie J is so cheap and doesn’t leave victoria in the finals…

    Thumbs up – SJ
    Thumbs down – Rockliff

  19. Made an err in judgement choosing Bird over Parker in my forward line a few weeks back but not irretrievable as I have the funds to rectify it.

    It would however only leave me 4 trades but pretty much complete my team, although still got Jaensch as an irritation in my back line…

    T/U Bird will come good, save the trade
    T/D Get Parker in before he’s out of reach

  20. I dont really want to trade McGovern yet, and not a fan of picking a rookie after 1 wk. So im wondering on what Zak Jones JS is like? Was thinking of LMac>Jones and upgrading Shenton>Parker. Then swap Wingard with Parker. Wingard would be my mid bench cover for now and Parker on field in Fwds. Leaves me with $100k. Then next wk, provided HChurch goes ok, trade McGovern>Church perhaps.

  21. Anyone looking at options to move on Derrick to provide all important cover at R3 for when Sandi is rested / injured.

    Two current cheap options to link with S.Martin up front

    Thumbs UP: Ben Brown of North (DPP – R/F) – rookie with questionable JS

    Thumbs DOWN: David Hale (DPP – R/F) – Scores down this year 69 (ave), 55 (5 game ave) & 65 (3 game ave). More competition with not only McEvoy (when he plays), but also the Hawks rookie rucks. 302K is a straight swop for Derrickx, however, out of remaining 8 games will he play more than 5 or 6 games & will he average more than 69?

    Hale is probably similar call to my Jack Grimes suggestion a couple of weeks ago, do you get good bench cover that you would not want to rely on every week as a starting player, but they may fluke a good score at the time you need them / with E loophole. I was looking at continue building from the bottom up, so that instead of 1 trade for Johnny average (i.e. Hallahan to Grimes), 2 trades are used so that Hallahan & other 300K (Ambrose) go to Parker & DPP rookie (Honeychurch) with previous F6 Wingard becoming M9 / F7. Just wanted any Hawks fans / observers opinions on Hale, will he get back to mid 80’s of previous couple of years or is he now just a bit part player ?

  22. Sick of Murphy. He scores sub 100 too often. Have enough in the kitty to get one of the guns:

    TU: JPK
    TD: Fyfe

  23. Need to trade one of McGovern or Shenton this week to complete my team.
    The other will be traded in a few weeks for Sam Mitchell once he bottoms out.
    Both have similar BE and both have shown they can ton up. Who should I trade out this week.

    T/U: Trade Shenton

    T/D: Trade McGovern

  24. I have struck gold and don’t know whether to hold onto it or sell it while the price is good. I have Zaharakis who is now at $552k but only averages 91pts (gold), with 9trades and $285k in the bank and X Ellis as my last rookie mid to upgrade I noticed I could trade Zaharakis or X Ellis to any midfielder I want this week. Can’t do both as I have used 1 trade already.

    TU = trade Z man
    TD = trade X man

  25. anyone got any thoughts on Duffield? is he worth a POD spot? backs would be:

    Bartel, Swallow, Malceski, Duffield (potentially), Jaensch, Walker

    Has scored 7 tons this year with his last 5 being 109, 130, 102, 114, 132

    But has scored less than 80, 6 times

    is he playing a different role the past 5 weeks?

    TU: Duffield

    TD: McVeigh/Simpson in a few weeks

  26. 6 Trades left and holding fire.
    Have basically filled my team, with a couple of question marks, but delivered me 2643 this week so team looking reasonably solid, even with Houli and Swannie not firing a shot.

  27. Thoughts on this crazy ass trade?

    Out – Libba, In – Boyd.

    Will Libba be stuck with the tag now? Will Boyd be able to run free? I am looking into any sort of POD at the moment and am tossing up some potential theories.

    TU: Way too Crazy
    TD: Could just work…

  28. Was all set for Bird – Parker but now torn as Guthrie has also a bit of a wipeout in my backline of late. So last two trades I need to make but only 5 left and can only fund one for now. Which one is the smarter move?

    T/U Bird – Parker
    T/D Guthrie – Hodge

  29. Running awfully low on trades and only 174k in the kitty, however my forward line is looking ragged. Will Leuenberger play this week, and lower S.Martin’s scoring ability? If so, should I pull the trigger on trading in Hickey, moving S.Martin to R3, and getting in a forward (will have 550k to spend)? Alternatively, should I just cash in and upgrade Martin (leaving my ruck with only Hickey as bench cover – *if* he even gets a run)?

    If i trade hickey out and DPP Martin, i can’t afford Franklin, but if I just upgrade Martin, I can. Would Franklin be worth it, or would another forward under 550k be better value?

    T/U – hickey out, dpp martin, find a forward that’s cheaper than Buddy
    T/D – Martin > Franklin, leaving effectively no ruck bench cover

  30. Well I planned a shenton to jpk trade but am 4k short so what I could do is go
    Shenton to dal santo and then go jaensch to a defender worth 475k or less and does anyone have any news on Sam Mitchell return?

  31. Thinking McGovern to Kersten and Shenton to Fyfe. It is early to trade McGovern out but Fyfe has a low BE and is due to rise in price as well.
    This will leave me with a midfield of GAZ, Pendles, D Beams, JPK, Selwood, Libba, Rockliff and Fyfe: Beams and O’Brien.
