Trade Talk R17

Written by Schwarzwalder on July 9 2017

Changes, late-outs, injuries, under-performers, barely a team made it through unscathed……..plenty to talk about this week ahead of Rd17. Who’s getting the ‘ol chop-chop? Who’s getting a promotion?

  1. Parsons gets another week!

    Will upgrade Ainsworth to either Gawn or a premo forward (very short list, that one). Might go a double up if Scharenberg doesn’t hold his place.


  2. Everyone should be at full premo now and holding trades for finals. Unless you have Patrick Cripps and he will miss 3+ weeks then maybe, but I don’t think any other SC relevant players got injured?


    1. Another reason would be to bring in a cheap D7, M9, or F7. Or bring a premo in and move a current player into one of those spots. But as I said, should be there by now!


  3. Is it worth holding on to Rocky? He just hasn’t been the same since that injury, not entirely sure if he’ll come good now, and I have far too many under-performing premos atm.

    T/U: Move him on.

    T/D: Stick it out, he’ll come good.


  4. Bit of a left-field one but here it is:

    Trade out: Treloar and Scooter Selwood
    Trade in: Rocky and Sloane

    Will leave me with 6 trades to cover any LTIs

    TU: Go for it
    TD: waste of trades, Rocky and Sloane aren’t coming good.


    1. Definitely a waste. Although u could upgrade scooter. I’d probably steer clear of Sloane. He’s getting smashed every week


  5. Cursing bringing in Ricky Henderson for my almost last trade. Do we think that greenwood will get back? Only 2 trades ๐Ÿ™


  6. I’m not sure whether I should be making any trades or not. I’m very much borderline on most leagues I’m in.

    Well my team as it stands right now is

    DEF: Laird, Adams, Lloyd, Touhy, Newman, Mich. Hibberd (Ryan, Scharenberg)
    MID: Danger, Murphy, Oliver, Bont, Cotchin, JPK, Fyfe, Greenwood (SPP, Witherden, Cousins
    RU: Kreuzer, Witts (Cameron)
    FWD: Yeo, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Nankervis, Heeney (Bolton, Brown)

    3 trades left, $259k remaining

    I want to hold onto the trades until finals, because I’ve burnt out too much trades as it is. But I feel there are problems with my team that are slowly bringing my side down, particularly how disappointing my backline has been for the last few weeks. So here are my two options I’m thinking of right now.

    TU: Risk my team getting worse by holding onto the trades until finals. Gives Greenwood time to reach peak price, and upgrade two other $400-450k players in the finals as well.

    TD: Upgrade Tuohy to Docherty. (The only defender I’d really trust trading to right now, I don’t like Hurley much). Save the last two trades until finals. Downgrade one of Greenwood and SPP, and upgrade the other.

    I really have no clue what I should do right now. I want to make sure I make finals, and be in a good enough position when I get there.


    1. You need a premo def and premo mid.
      Trade out SPP for a $102 rookie as his BE97.
      Than next week upgrade Shaz too Docherty.
      Than wait til finals and upgrade either Ryan or Witherden whomever is higher for a midfield premo u can afford.
      Greenwood to be your floater


  7. 10 trades left, need 1 more mid

    T/U – JKelly

    T/D – Zerret

    Would love both, but unfortunately ive been cursed with hanners and treloar for the foreseeable future


  8. Have 8 trades left.

    DEFs are Docherty, Laird, Adams, Lloyd, Hibberd and Newman.

    Is it worth upgrading Newman to Hurley?

    TU: Yes
    TD: No


    1. With that many trades left, I think you’re safe to do so as long as there’s no other pressing matters in your team ๐Ÿ™‚


  9. Rocky is so cheap now $ 465,000 ($-138.9K) that I am considering trading Ainsworth to Rocky and use him as bench cover? or wait a week and grab Selwood at a bargain basement price? Two champions for bench cover who would have thought it?
    T/U Rocky
    T/D Joel


  10. Only 4 trades left. Need 1 FWD and 1 RUC to go full premium ($474,000 in the bank)

    My current ruck set up: Nankervis, Darcy (Preuss)

    Potential trades:
    Ainsworth > Ryder (FWD)
    Preuss > Gawn (RUC)

    T/U: make the trades now
    T/D: hold off for a few weeks
    Comment: any alternative suggestions welcome!


      1. Pretty certain that Greenwood will play this week. Back in for Thompson, who only had 10 possessions on Friday. Crows lost clearances 41-22 yet that is supposed to be one of Thompson’s strengths.


  11. Probably not going to make the move this week but looking ahead who do you guys think would be the best option as D6 (moving H Shaw to D7) out of Hurley, Roberton, Hibberd, Rance?
    – If all were priced similarly Hurley would easily be my choice as he is the most consistent, has a healthy season, 3rd & 5rd average and also owned by only 5%. but he is $30k more than rance and $70k more than roberton
    – Roberton is the best value option at $456k and a high BE but there is a big question mark around whether he can get back to his early season form, his 3 and 5 rd ave are pretty crap.

    Currently have Laird, DOch, Adams, Howe, Lloyd, Shaw.


  12. Midfield: danger, martin, treloar, rocky, bont, sloane, fyfe, greenwood.
    Trading greenwood to j. selwood next week
    Comment what mid to trade out for titchell/zorko


      1. Hold Joseph.

        last week people were ditching Fyfe. Would you trade him now?

        Dusty scored 74 this week. Are you going to trade him?

        Both Sloane and Trelore have shown they can score well this year. You need to trust your Premos.

        Trades wise things can go bad very quickly.

        I know. I traded in P Cripps this week now I have to replace him.

        Saying all that, If you are top 100 with 10+ trades left I would trade Trelore for Zorko.


  13. I was not planning any trades this week , but will make at least 1 possibly 2 trades needing to bank wins after a horror week.

    Bear with me as it is a bit involved.

    First off i will whack the Emergency on Heppell on Friday night. If he scores 95+ i will take his score by trading Fisher to Deluca – Cardillo Freo mid – fwd 102k as i have no loophole options at this stage. Then will just get Selwood in next week for Mountford.

    If Heppell scores under 95 i will use 2 trades to get Joel Selwood in to put him on the field.. 1st trade Scharenberg to Nyhuis and then Fisher to Selwood.


  14. Looking at moving on Parsons for Paddy Ryder, which completes the forward line and leaves $120k in the bank with 6 trades left. Both players have low break evens so could hold off, what do you guys think?

    T/U – do the trade
    T/D – better options/wait a week


  15. Looking at keeping Nank as swing + F7 and bring in Gawn for non-playing rook. Can only get there by moving Cripps to Jelwood. I know it’s early… I have 9 trades and $260k in the bank.

    T/U – do it
    T/D – look at other options and if so, what?


  16. With 6 trades left, I could definitely just sit tight and wait till finals…. Or not.

    Would like to trade Hurley in but not sure who goes first,

    Who would be the better trade candidate?

    TU – Newman (1 trade to Hurley)

    TD – Tuohy (2 trades to Hurley – 14 K short of doing it in one trade)


      1. Thanks for the thumbs but I think I’m going to splash the cash and get..


        His last 4 games this year are v’s Dogs ,Suns, Melb, North.

        T/U lock him in.

        T/D Stop looking at that 196 from last week.


  17. Collingwood look like they’ve given up so thinking Treloar will continue to stink it up. Full premo so considering luxury trades of:

    SBolton – Hibberd (NM)
    Treloar – Titch

    Bring in a top 3 MID for an underperformer and open up DEF-MID swing in the process.

    TU – go for it, significantly improves team
    TD – not worth it, Treloar to come good


  18. My current mids are danger / jelwood / zerrett / fyfe / pendles / treloar / hanners.

    Have tough must win league match up this week, so am looking to offload Scooter this week for either:

    T/ up Dusty – $596,700 / Aver 114.6 / L3 – 105 / L5 – 117 / BE = 160

    Run home – has Bris / GWS / GC / Haw / Geel / Frem / St K

    t / down Titch – $589,800 / Aver 116.6 / L3 – 120 / L5 – 115 / BE = 93

    Run home – has Geel / Frem / Syd / Rich / Nth / Carl / WB



  19. With trades not being an issue should I trade Treloar? Looks to be struggling with his osteitis pubis

    TU – Trade him
    TD – Keep him


  20. A change of Trade plans.

    Shaw to Laird for only 55k seems a bargain.

    T – U Go for it and don’t look back

    T – D Keep Shaw as he might actually ton up by seasons end.


  21. Current mids of:
    Danger Zerrett Pendles Rocky Bont Murphy Treloar

    Last mid spot:
    Titch 589K (TU) vs Jelwood 486K (TD)

    Joel has 3 of last 4 at Simmonds
    Titch remarkable consistency all year


  22. It all feels a bit sidewaysie but not having Laird for the run home worries me.

    7 trades left, $80k

    TU: Newman (currently D6) -> Laird
    TD: Hold for now


    1. Key though is you wouldn’t trade sloane and treloar to titch and zorko. Which is what i think your thinking of doing??


  23. Almost Complete team, but not having laird also worry me.

    Defense – docherty, Michael hibberd, rance, loyd, touhy, JJ (Ryan, McInnes)
    With so little cash and trade left Will loophole Ryan and JJ where possible.

    2 trades left, 100k in the bank.
    TU – touhy to laird
    TD – Hold trade


  24. Have 6 trades & 190 k left
    Thinking of going Scooter
    To Callan Ward for m8

    TU. Do It

    TD. Hold better options to come


  25. Some help please.
    Was forced to hold Beams so have worn 2 large price drops. Unsure whether to just keep him now and use my bank to upgrade a fattened rookie to Jelwood? Beams would then be bench cover/loop. Or do I trade Beams to Jelwood (possibly this week) and use my bank in the coming weeks to upgrade Shaw/Nank/Lynch?

    TU: Keep Beams (M9), upgrade a rookie to Jelwood
    TD: Trade Beams to Jelwood, use bank to upgrade Shaw/Nank/Lynch


  26. Just a stray thought: how has Seb Ross slipped so far under the radar? He’s in just 0.9 percent of teams, and if you ignore his 36 in round 1, is averaging just under 111 (with a high of 151 and a low of 88). He’s also very affordable, at just $552,300.


  27. Options? 8 Trades – 230k
    Adams, Shaw, Hibberd (melb), Doch, Newman, Tuohy (Hibberd – Nth, Ryan)
    Pendles, Danger, JPK, Neale, Merrett, Fyfe, Bont, Pepper (Berry, Witherden, Cousins)
    Gawn, Martin (Strnadica)
    Dank, Nank, Macrae, Buddy, Lynch, Parsons (Eddy, Greenwood)
    Thinking Pepper to Dusty or Mitchell or should I just grab J Selwood for 100k cheaper. Thoughts?
    Or should I free up more cash for a double upgrade next week and get rid of Pepper or Berry


  28. As Tuohy has 3 of the 4 finals games in Geelong, i am thinking about keeping him and getting rid of H. Shaw and Newman instead, where Tuohy has averaged just under 93. Thoughts?

    T/U – Good decision
    T/D – Newman will still be better as a D6


  29. B: Doc, Laird, Hibberd, Adams, Tuohy, Shaw. Cover is Ryan and Hibberd.

    C: Danger, Dusty, Oliver, Bont, Pendles, Treloar, Fyfe, SPP. Cover is Lloyd, Pickett and Brown.

    R: Gawn, Witts. Cover is Strnadica.

    F: Heeney, Yeo, Greene, McCrae, Dahlhaus, Nank. Cover is Greenwood and Eddy.

    I have 8 trades with 244k in the kitty.

    Thinking about SPP to Jelwood but he’ll be cheaper next week. Any advice, as always, is much appreciated.


  30. If you were luxury trading, who would you get rid of

    TU Treloar (Ave 101, 8 tons, 4 under 80)
    TD Fyfe (Ave 101, 7 tons, 2 under 80)


  31. Doch, Adams, Lloyd, Shaw, Tuohy, Newman (Ryan, Scharenberg)

    Danger, Dusty, Pendles, JSelwood, Gaz, Bont, Fyfe, Greenwood (Witherden, Cousins, CBrown)

    Kreuzer, Gawn (Strnadica)

    Yeo, Macrae, Dahl, Buddy, Lynch, Heeney (Bolton, Eddy)

    10 trades with 356,300k in the bank

    Am thinking of moving Shaw to a mid premium (still unsure of who) via Witherden dpp, who would then be on my field but hopefully he continues to score how he is.

    Was also thinking to upgrade then either tuohy or newman to laird, and then in a few weeks when ryan goes up a bit more to get in my last defender, possibly Hurley, and move Witherden to the bench.

    Also allowing me to keep Greenwood as mid/fwd cover.

    Thoughts? Thanks for all the help


  32. Options? 8 Trades โ€“ 230k
    Adams, Shaw, Hibberd (melb), Doch, Newman, Tuohy (Hibberd โ€“ Nth, Ryan)
    Pendles, Danger, JPK, Neale, Merrett, Fyfe, Bont, Pepper (Berry, Witherden, Cousins)
    Gawn, Martin (Strnadica)
    Dank, Nank, Macrae, Buddy, Lynch, Parsons (Eddy, Greenwood)
    ****Leave your best options below**** Thanks


  33. Cash league priority- secure top 4 with 1 more win.
    10 trades left 220k bank
    Full team besides 1 Ruck
    Don’t have Docherty
    Love Howe but feel he is overpriced at 500k

    Jeremy Howe -> Docherty
    Fisher -> Loophole rookie option

    Next week Parsons -> Gawn (Via Nank DPP)

    T/U: Get Doch in!
    T/D: Too sideways, suffer the burn of Docherty.
