  1. bevo has said gardiner is playing this week , i’m expecting he’ll play fwd
    102 k fwd – mid season draft
    going early on him so that i can get kelly

    libba & constable out
    gardiner & kelly in

    finally creates DP mid/fwd & mid/def swings ,
    also gives minimum 18 onfield for each bye , barring injuries / omissions
    a nice projected 2400 this week , with 5 onfield rooks left to upgrade
    team starting to come together

    in an ideal scenario , next week will be
    scrimshaw & atkins out
    cameron & bewley in

    ready to go walsh , str8 trade to danger if he gets himself fit ,
    hopefully after dangers R 14 bye

    1. Gardner’s been playing in the backline for the Dogs VFL side this season. Doggies seniors backs need all the help they can get. Should be playing as a locked down back.

      1

      1
  2. Josh Kelly worth 645k ???
    Seems like a lot but too good not to have when fit imo.
    Break even of 105, will most likely go up further in price.

    Thoughts???

    1. yeh , if you look @ GWS’s run , they’re probably gna finish top 2
      i’m pretty confident he’ll shoot up to & hold his price @ 670k ,
      looks like GWS waited until he was cherry ripe before bringing him back ,
      had him last year & he was a unstoppable , looks better this year ,
      i recon he will be the top SC scorer from this point on , just pipping grundy

      1. For him to get / stay at 670k, he’d have to average 136 for the rest of the year and without any less than stellar scores thrown in (with a 110-115 thrown in, he’d be around 650 again). Not saying he can’t do it but it would be tough to maintain that average for that long (although he avoids the de Boer tag, so that may be something to mull over).

        I plan to pick him up post-byes, hopefully around his current price.

    2. Worth it if you don’t have any more pressing issues to attend to. You’re ultimately going to want him in your team and the earlier the better given his scoring output and as PJ said they’ve got a great run. That said, all the injuries right now could make another trade more urgent

      1. all my onfield rooks are worth 330k – 420k ,
        all bench worth worth 250
        will end up switching gardiner to a non playing M/F or D/F loophole
        should have good JS ,
        serves a purpose , fits my team stratergy right now

        1

    3. Get a time machine and bring him in three weeks ago for $60k less and enjoy the three massive scores they us owners got before everyone now trades him in at top dollar for him to get injured or go sub 90

  3. Bringing in Lloyd and Hinge for Scrimshaw and Clark. Bit of a shame shipping Clark off after an 80 but was overdue in bringing in the seagull

  4. Looking at a midfield upgrade this week. My mids are currently Neale, Cripps, Oliver, Zerrett and Macrae. I can’t afford to keep playing 3 rookies in this line.

    I can’t afford Kelly, so I’m currently tossing up between Bont and Sloane. Sloane has the last bye, but also has the De Boer tag in Rd13. Bont is slightly cheaper, and will probably be the more consistent option, but he seems to have dropped off a little bit in the last few weeks. I’m worried if I bring Bont in, he’ll end up just averaging 105ish for the rest of the year, like he seems to have done in previous years.

    TU: Bont ($566k, BE 122) [RD12 bye]
    TD: Sloane ($583k, BE 83) [RD14 bye]

    16

    19
    1. Neither, coz what you said about Bont, and M Crouch to return(???) soon.
      Put your hand back in the hat and draw again….Pendles maybe???

  5. DEF: Hurn, Whitfield, Williams, Smith, Hore, Duursma (Clark, Answerth)
    MID: Cripps, Macrae, Fyfe, Oliver, Neale, Sloane, Walsh, Atkins (Constable, Hayes, Scott)
    RUC: Gawn, Grundy (ROB)
    FWD: Danger, Heeney, Kelly, Dunkley, Parker, Corbett (Setterfield, Young)

    About 14k in bank and 21 trades to go, ranked 400ish…
    Been trying to plan and attack for the byes to ensure i can maintain my personal best rank. Few non-playing rookies on the bench are my concern but all are players still in selection frame. Trend of one down, one up has been a popular strategy i have been using this year.

    Unsure whether to continue this trend and strengthen that forward line through F5&F6 this week or hold steady and build cash for the byes.

    Thinking:
    Clark > Hinge (looks a good player)
    Constable > J.Cameron via dpp (has Gold Coast this week and is looking unreal)
    Thoughts on this?
    Otherwise i may just do Constable > Hinge to generate some cash leading into byes.

    TU: Clark and Constable to Hinge and Cameron, 30k left
    TD: Constable to Hinge, 240k left for byes

    Current bye structure would then move to 23-18-19

    7

    5
  6. Wanted to go Clark to Whitfield and Constable to Bewley (1 game early) but fall short by $3,000. Ugh

    So, should someone priced $114,300 or below play, should I trade them in for Constable, with Clark for Whitfield still going ahead?

    TU: Yes, TD: No

    Otherwise, should I downgrade a midfielder (eg Brad Crouch), and put Constable at M8 (should he be selected). Clark to Whitfield to still happen

    TU/TD in the reply below.

    2

    6
  7. Trade Constable (never plays, i dont understand cause his looking pretty good) to Jelly and Darcy Moore down to Hinge

    TU > Good trades
    TD > Bad trades

    21

    3
  8. 4 rookies left on field (Hore, Duursma, Baker, Hinge) after this trade but only 13 trades.
    Plan on being full premo by the time the byes end with hopefully 3-4 trades left for injuries.

    LockHart & Miers -> Whitfield & Hinge

    Is my trade situation going to be a concern?
    TU: yes
    TD: No

    21

    2
  9. The logical trade out is Lockhart given his BE but at least he’s a warm body over the byes. Getting rid of Hayes may therefore be better but its a minimal return eg. $80k.

    TU – Lockhart-Hinge & Moore-Stewart
    TD – Hayes-Hinge & Moore-JCameron

    3

    5
  10. Alright, SCTers, need some counsel this week looking towards the byes.

    So, here’s my team:

    DEF: Hurn, Lloyd, Whitfield, Hore, Lloyd, Duursma, Burgess & Hinge

    MID: J. Kelly, Fyfe, Macrae, Oliver, Cripps, M. Crouch, Walsh, Atkins, Answerth, Scott & T. Watson (loophole)

    RUC: Grundy, Gawn & ROB

    FWD: Boak, Dangerfield, Heeney, Darling, Baker, Bolton, Corbett & Setterfield

    Alright, so I’ve got 168k in the bank and 19 trades left. As my team stands now, I’ve got 21 playing in R12, 14 playing in R13 and 17 playing in R14- this is all before trades.

    As you can see I’ve got big problems in R13. This week I’m thinking I’ll cash in on ROB and begin culling R13 players starting with Moore this week:

    Moore -> Ryan
    ROB -> Fort

    I’d actually prefer Houli over Ryan, he’s only sub tonned twice and has an easier run but it seems Ryan works better for my bye structure- or lack thereof. Also the issue of whether I should keep ROB for cover, although Jacobs might replace him by then. Hmm.

    Anyway, would love some feedback on those trades and also how I should be approaching the byes given my issues in R13.

    Cheers!

    1. Jeez I’d love to have two Lloyd’s in my defence! Haha. I’m assuming the second Lloyd is supposed to be Moore.

      Personally I’d be looking at an upgrade in the forward line instead. With Darling at F4, and the rest rookies, it seems like the place to upgrade first. Especially with how decently the defence rookies are scoring.

      1. Lol, sorry about Lloyd x2. 2nd one is Moore.

        Will likely get rid of Darling at his bye, should do okay against the Dogs at home and then Sydney.

        Ty, bAps.

      1. An option could be
        ROB to D Fort increasing your remaining salary to 452,000.
        S Bolton to R Gray decreasing that to 371,600.
        B Scott to L Ryan/J Sicily (via X Duursma) with 0 to 50,000 left.
        T Atkins to B Bewley in RD13 freeing up 200,000.
        S Walsh to L Neale in RD14 leaving less than 40,000.
        N Answerth/W Setterfield to R Gardner freeing up roughly 120,000.
        X Duursma/L Baker to a mid around 500,000 (600,000 if you complete another downgrade)

        1. Problem is I still won’t have addressed the crisis in R13, which is why I’m thinking I need to offload Moore this week. Not completely sold on Gray either, so many Port players vying for that midfield time.

          Your suggestions from Atkins onwards are very helpful though, will likely do that.

          Tyvm, Adam.

  11. Hold Coniglio?

    T/up – Yes he’ll come good

    T/down – Injured and may not return to best with Kelly in

    1. That’s a hard one John !
      According to injury report backing up after a 6 day break -No biggie but, he’s not playing like a Happy Camper & I suspect still carrying that finger injury, which they had grave doubts about only 3 weeks ago. Doesn’t fill me with a lot of confidence either ….and if he does play, set loose the guts of 20k to boot !
      I’m with you..What to do, what to do ??

  12. Scrim – Hinge
    Petru – Cameron

    I miss whitfield but my fwd line is weaker than my defence, Hore is a solid d6 for the moment.

    10

    1. Don’t think so. Just a photo has gone viral of him iced up in a way that a lot of players do as a matter of course.
      Hoping there is nothing in it and no ‘real’ news about it yet!

      8

      1
    1. Which do you believe will score more points for the rest of the season? Pick that one.
      Or, if you can’t decide on who will score better, just pick the cheaper of the two.

  13. 243k in bank, 16 trades left

    Hurn, Lloyd, Whitfield, Williams, B Smith, Hore (Duursma, Answerth)
    Neale, Fyfe, Macrae, T Kelly, Cripps, M Crouch, B Crouch, Walsh (Stack, Atkins, Ross)
    Gawn, Goldstein (Bines)
    Boak, Daniel, Dangerfield, Moore, Baker, Petruccelle (Corbett, Young)

    What should i do?

    1

    1
    1. Stack to Hinge via Answerth freeing up 210,000 increasing your remaining salary to approximately 450,000 and Petrucelle to be traded via T Kelly for a premium mid and the remaining cash could potentially be used to trade D Moore to J Dunkley.

      3

      1
    2. I would trade Ross to Hinge, this opens your DPP M/D.

      Save the cash, and try and not trade next week. R 13 you can safely target anyone who has already had their Bye.

      I would be looking at Sicily back and Dunkley forward.

      Best of luck..

  14. In a bit if a tough spot for the round 12 bye, looking at getting Dunkley and Hinge in this week for Lockhart and Atkins, then going after Boak after his bye.

    TU – Good Trade
    TD – Bad Trade

    2

    5
  15. Depending on injuries and selections, I’m leaning towards a genuine downgrade (Pettruccelle -> Hinge) accompanied by a somewhat luxury/corrective trade of Hayes or Scott to someone like Bewley.

    Only have 4 rookies on field, and feel it probably makes more sense to try and stagger those upgrades through the byes. So this week and next just build up the warchest, and then launch from there.

    If the reports of Hore missing 2-4 are true though, it may shift me towards a forward line upgrade. Shitty timing though – a 2 week layoff for Hore is effectively a 3-week layoff with his R13 Bye.

  16. Need some advice on priority please SCTers

    D Hurn Laird Williams B.Smith Atkins Hore (Hinge Answerth)

    M Neale Cripps Bont Mcrouch JPK Crouch Constable Gibbons (Setterfield Scott Hayes)

    R Grundy Gawn (ROB)

    F Danger Dunkley Heeney Baker Drew (Balta R.Young)

    248k remaining. Who needs to go first? Does ROB need to go now for J.Kelly money? Spend it down back to get Whitfield? I’m a bit lost..TIA

          1. Sorry guys. Was doing it at the wrong time.

            D: Hurn Laird Williams Smith Hore Clark Hinge Answerth

            M: Neale Cripps JPK Bont M.Crouch Walsh Constable Gibbons (Scott Hayes Setterfield)

            R: Grundy Gawn ROB

            F: Danger T.Kelly Heeney Dunkley Balta Baker R.Young Drew

            Didn’t know about Kennedy. Wow. Got him in two weeks ago…Late out and then injured. Shoulda gone with my 2nd option which was Sloane. These are the mistakes that can make or break.

  17. Going to go Wilkie go Hinge, but I don’t know what to do for my second trade. 20 trades left and $234k after trading Wilkie. Need help please give me suggestions!!

    Def: Laird, Williams, Whitfield, Wilkie, Duursma, Hore EMG: Answerth, Clark

    Mid: Cripps, Treloar, Fyfe, Cogs, Macrae, B. Crouch, Stack, Stocker EMG: setterfield, Sparrow, Hayes

  18. Have gawn, goldy, rob……perfect for byes with two playing every week. Brilliant for r13 after which grundy comes in.
    But, rob to fort looks so cash attractive this week.
    T/u hold
    T/d rob to fort this week

  19. Hawkins or Daniel
    Tu: Hawkins
    Td: Daniel
    Comment: any forward under 515k. Probs not Cameron relies heavily on goals

  20. At a loss as to what to do this round. My team has been a dumpster fire above 20k all year, I haven’t finished beyond the 10k since 2013. Awful.

    I’m struggling with my non-playing rookies added up on the bench at the moment and any guidance is appreciated.

    I want to bring in either J.Cameron up front or H.Andrews down back but not sure how I can finagle it without trading out Duursma/Walsh/O’Brien/Hore all who are playing well and will make money so I want to hold onto as long as possible.

    But that leaves Lockhart who’s a prime candidate but also J.Clark down back and Parker up forward but both should now moo a bit more. The rest of the rookies haven’t made enough or aren’t playing.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    TEAM:
    DEF: Lloyd, Whitfield, Williams, B.Smith, Hore, J.Clark (Lockhart, Answerth)
    MID: Neale, Fyfe, Cripps, Macrae, Olive, M.Crouch, Walsh, Duursma (Stocker, W.Hayes, B.Scott)
    RUC: Grundy, Gawn (ROB)
    FWD: Kelly, Dunkley, Dangerfield, Daniel, Westhoff, Parker (Bines, R.Young)
    Bank: $34,600

      1. DPP. He’ll bring Answerth/Duursma into mid for attack and get Hinge. Welcome to Supercoach!

        3

        1
    1. That’s thing I need a 515k forward this week and debating on either Cameron, Hawkins or Daniel.
      Doesn’t Cameron mostly rely on goals to get most of his points?

      3

      1
      1. Who cares what he relies on for points? Unless you think the midfield supply from GWS is going to dry up? He’ll be up and down a bit but he’ll still average 95.

        3

        1
  21. Trade Wilkie to Hinge and Williams to Lloyd. Don’t know how fit williams will really be after he comes back and he is slightly inconsistent. If he picks up his game I can pick him up again after the bye. Thoughts?

    T/up – Do it, need the points

    T/down – Waste of a trade, just wait

  22. Already got Hurn, Lloyd and Whitfield, looking for an F4 to replace Moore this week. Down to Houli or Ryan.

    I know a lot of people rate Ryan, but I’m liking the look of Houli. He has only sub tonned twice and is averaging 106. Ryan has a huge ceiling, sure, but only 4/10 of his scores have been 100+.

    Can anyone make a compelling case for one over the over?

    T.U: Houli

    T.D: Ryan

    1. L Ryan:
      2019:
      Disposals Avg: 23.2
      SC avg when disposals equal/exceed 24: 144 from 3 (low of 131 and a high of 156, 3/3 120+)
      SC avg when disposals below 24: 88.86 from 7 (low of 78 and a high of 100, 6/7 below 100)

      1st time recording 30+ disposals in his career and has recorded it 3 times this season with an avg of 144 (156,145,131)

      Has now played 41 games for an avg of 18.76 disposals.
      SC avg when disposals equal/exceed 19: 111.75 from 20 (low of 67 and a high of 156, 1/20 below 80, 7/20 below 100, 8/20 120+)
      SC avg when disposals below 19: 69.95 from 21 (low of 32 and a high of 105, 13/21 below 80, 20/21 below 100)

      Currently B Houli’s 1st season in his career averaging 25+ disposals and since 2016 he has played 50 of a possible 76 games (including 2019).

      1. Great stats, Adam. Knew you’d leap at the opportunity to “make a compelling case”.

        Just having a bit of difficulty seeing how they can help me make a decision, stats sort of affirm my points about both of them.

        Stats indicate that Ryan’s scores heavily fluctuate and are contingent on hitting x number of disposals, whereas Houli’s season thus far is anomalous/break-out?

        Think I might need it in layman’s terms lol.

        4

        0
        1. You’re correct in both aspects regarding your assessment of the aforementioned players and is dependent on who you expect to average more/provide value or sustain their current form.

          Prefer Ryan’s consistency, base and ceiling as well as room for improvement as his supercoach and disposals average have increased in each season of his career.

          In comparison to Houli where recently Richmond’s game style hasn’t been conducive to SC scoring and the probability of him maintaining his recent form in regards to amassing 30+ disposals I assume would be low whereas it shouldn’t be too difficult for Ryan to consistently amass 19+ disposals.

          3

          0
          1. Ah, yep. Makes sense. Tyvm, Adam.

            Looks like Ryan comes in this week, strapping in for the rollercoaster ride.

  23. Thoughts on Ben Cunnington?

    Avg – 111.3
    Costs $551,800
    Has the rd 14 bye
    Highest score of 2019 – 159
    Lowest score of 2019 – 91
    Currently number 10 midfielder based on Avg
    Currently number 8 midfielder based on total points

    1. Maybe when he was cheap, but is now priced at his lofty average, which is significantly higher than previous years. Be careful, a return to his mean would make him an ugly trade indeed!
      I’d wait until after his bye in any case. Will give you time to assess the change in head coach and its possible implications …
      Good luck

      2

      3
  24. Who should I bring in before the byes (I should be fielding 18 players each bye week regardless)

    T/U: Whitfield
    T/D: Lloyd

    14

    1
  25. How is everyone looking for the byes. Grundy and Gawn might mean donuts elsewhere. This weeks rookie targets, Hinge, Baker, Fort, all have the r13 bye, although Fort may be on the pine…most people would probably look to trade him for rob, but rob plays r13.
    I think Bewley for me after his r12 bye…will still be at rookie price, and can be traded for a number of non performing rookies which I’m sure most of us have. What is Baker js with the likes of hibberd, salem, jetta, lever to return. Hinge for Young looks like my only trade this week…especially if Moore misses again.
    Toughest bye rounds I can remember.

  26. Anyone have any strong thoughts on the ideal/maximum number of premos from any one team?

    Macrae and Bont in the midfield already.
    Eyeing off Dunkley and Daniel in the forward line.

    Is four players from the one side too many, given three of them are, ostensibly, midfielders. Feel like there aren’t too many other players at Footscray demanding high scores most weeks (compared to a side like GWS where the top shelf players can suffer when someone like a Cameron or Taranto or whoever puts in a strong showing). Concerned that it might be a few too many eggs in one basket though, given a bad loss for the Doggies could see 4 poor scores for my side.

  27. Definitely going Atkins to Hinge this week. Unsure on my second trade though, any suggestions i have about 250k in the bank.

    MY TEAM:

    DEF: Hurn, Lloyd, Whitfield, Williams, Hore, Duursma (Hinge, Answorth)

    MID: Neale, Fyfe, Macrae, Oliver, Cripps, M. Crouch, Walsh, Constable (Gibbons, Stocker, Scott.)

    Ruck: Gawn, Grundy (Z. Clarke)

    FWD: T. Kelly, Daniel, Dangerfield, Worpel, Baker, Corbett (Young, Burgess).

    1. Smith.

      Atkins just scored a ton!

      His JS is rock solid.

      Chook ( Con- unstable)

      Has no real JS and more value now.

      Constable to Hinge for sure.

        1. Hold Clark !

          He won’t loose money…

          He can be up/ downgraded R 13

          Open your DPP this week you won’t regret it !

    Grundy Gawn B: Bines
    Kelly, Boak, Dangerfield, Moore, Westhoff, Corbett B: Young Burgess

    74k in bank and 22 trades remaining. Any trade ideas appreciated. Wanting Whitfield but not sure how to get him and who to trade out!

    1. Scrimshaw is injured and needs to go.

      Hinge is the best downgrade this week, and he just happens to be a defender.

      Scrim to Hinge for sure.

      I know libba went well last week but he misses with the bye next week.
      I would go Libba to Whitfield, via Duursma / Answerth.

      This also opens your DPP M/D , very handy for the Byes 😉

      Best of luck whatever you decide.

          Not sure I can recommend anyone to be honest.

          Quite a few folks learnt the hard way last week, going early on Hinge and Young.

          I’m hoping Bewley (M)and Bulldogs new recruit Gardener (M/D) can hold their spots.

          Both have the Bye next week, so won’t be on the bubble until R 13/14 respectively.

          I guess if you really need a downgrade and can make it work.
          Baker from The Dees is on the Bubble, and maybe worth a shot.

          1. Thanks FT. Baker was my first thought as guaranteed at least one price rise and the risk on going early has again proven to be too high so far this year.

            Baker and Whitfield in!

  31. Fyfe. We all know he’ll probably get injured at some point. But until that happens, his big scores are getting harder and harder to ignore. If you don’t already have him, is it worth bringing him in?

    TU: Yes, the big scores are worth it.
    TD: No, you know as well as I do that it will end up costing two trades in the end.

      Fyfe has the bye next week. By all means target him in R13, but getting him this week would be a waste.

      1. Generally I’d agree with you, but I’m a bit short for midfielders this week, and my round 12 bye situation is pretty good anyway.

  32. *PLEASE READ*
    I’m doing a Comp with my brother and whoever ends up on more total points at the end of year gets $100 from the other one. He’s starting to get away from me and maybe like 200-300 points ahead and I need to make a move so I think getting josh kelly in is crucial even if I don’t get him from upgrading a rookie.
    I have Rockliff and Crouch and they both sitting on bench so I feel like on of em gotta go.

    1. So… I’m actually thinking a lil out of the box. Instead of Joyce and Baker that i think will be unreliable with both scoring and JS I’m thinking of paying 44k more for Begley fwd. Reading up on him “the fridge” looks to have great JS and although hiss does weren’t amazung he kicked 4 behinds for 44 points and 1.2 goals for 59 points. If he can string a couple of games together with a couple of goals he may go up enough in time. If not a relisble 50 to 60 points on bench. He’s coming off an ACL so warning up still and looks to be in best 22 atm. Played a couple of games at end of 2017 and first 5 of 2018 where he did his ACL. He’s 188cm and 94kg so good size and not a super tall fwd. Thoughts?

      I would maybe look at doing this trade R13. Brayshaw’s Bye.

      Fyfe has the Pies this week and then the Bye R12.

      It will also give you a look at Gardener. Getting in a first gamer is fraught with danger.

      Best of luck whatever you decide.

        1. If he can manage his overall average ( 86 ) over the next 2 he will only lose about $5 /10k.

          If he keeps going at his 3 round average of 71 ,he will probably bleed around $15/2ok

          1. So much risk in both my plays if i don’t trade Brayshaw i might not afford the premium players i need but going to take the risk cause like you said its Gardner first game need to see how he goes and trade him in the bye rounds with fyfe.

            thanks for the help mate.

      1. What ever you do,don’t go early on a player just to build a bank.

        During the Byes you have 3 trades each week.
        Pick off guys like Bewley on the bubble ( R13 ) Its much safer that way.

        Just ask anyone that went Hinge or Young early.

        I understand taking a risk to get in a “must have” defender like Whitfield or Lloyd.

        I still think the safest bet is going a bubble boy like Baker this week, and saving Bewley for R13.

        Best of luck…

            I only have 1 clayton oliver definately hasn’t been good enough to clone FT.

            I might sit on my trades this week and look at bewley on the bubble like you’ve suggested, i don’t rate bakers JS enough to get him for bye coverage.

          2. Solid call.

            For me, I don’t need any more R 13 Bye players in my side anyway.

            I hope Drew is named to replace Rocky, I expect he will be as Atley wasn’t named, and there really is no other pure mids on the extended list.I will be crossing my fingers and hoping I can also hold my trades this week.

            Best of luck ..

      1. Simon.

        Rocky’s price won’t change and Dunkley’s BE is 111. Unless he goes crazy v WC in Perth ( unlikely) his price won’t change much. Getting him now means he will miss next week anyway.

        Rocky could be back R13 , so I would be looking at holding him at least in the hope he plays then. If he misses, All bets are off.

        I would be saving Dunkley as a Rocky replacement / upgrade target in R13.

        Taranto has a great R14 bye and is killing it at the moment.
        I’m just not sure…. Will he will continue with this level of output when Cogs returns to full fitness ?

        I would probably just downgrade Butters or Scott and bank the cash for upgrades during the Byes.

        Best of luck whatever you choose to do.

    Current mid bench is Stocker, Setterfield, Scott.
    Will offload Setterfield to Bewley R13 but is Scott>Baker for

  49. Hi SuperCoach Community I would like to go Petrucelle to J Cameron
    this week. The only problem is I
    Can’t do Collins to O Baker I fall 5k
    short the only way I could is if I
    went Collins to Bewley early. Or
    Darcy Moore to O Baker not ideal
    I know does anyone have any advise
    for me. Any help would be appreciated!

    and 25k

    1. Jezza.

      You are actually in pretty good shape. Having the big three in defence is impressive.

      I would look to hold you trades this week,and maybe next as there’s no standout downgrades ,and you only really have M Crouch to cover. I have Williams and Rocky too 🙁

      R13 Downgrades ..Bewley and maybe Gardiner for..
      Collins / Gibbons / Petruccelle.

      Upgrades..Clark, Moore or Hore to Sicily / Ryan/ Blakely

      R14 Upgrade Baker Forward with any Fallen Premo that has had their Bye.

      Hope that helps.

  50. 20 trades left prior to this round
    DEF: Hurn, Lloyd, Whitfield, BSmith, Hore, Clark (Burgess, Watson)

    Trade thoughts:
    Gibbons & Ross to OBaker & Bewley
    Will leave $303,000 ITB

    The first trade only of Gibbons or Ross to OBaker will leave only $170K- not enough to upgrade Ross/Gibbons/Clark/Setters to a premo. Not wanting to trade Duursma or Balta yet.

    Double down this week?

  51. Hi supercoach community. First year player here as you can probably tell by my team haha. Bought in Josh Kennedy in a couple of weeks back and has been a disaster and with Shiel out this week too, I’m really struggling to decide on trades. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  54. For context, I need to trade in a backman this week to avoid a donut… and I currently have only $6k in the bank. So my thoughts are:

    Stack/Scrimshaw to Baker/Sicily

    Ideally I would be upgrading stack, but I have no other way of generating enough cash to get a half decent defender. So…

    T/U – yep
    T/D – nup

  55. I’m actually considering a double downgrade this week in getting Baker and Begley. I need to get Lloyd but even with a BE of 77 he shouldn’t go up more than 15k or so. It would leave me money to upgrade 2 players next week and there is literally no good downgrade options next week unless Hately or Hinge is named…

    TU Double downgrade and double upgrade next week

    TD just get Lloyd and Baker and have only 2k left and no trades next week

    1. FS.

      Next week ,is not the week for a double upgrade.

      Its the start of the Byes and anyone you trade in will miss a week.

      R 13 you can safely trade in R 12 Bye players like Macrea / Bont / Sicily / Ryan etc.

      By all means downgrade now and build a bank. I would advise waiting on your upgrades until they have completed their Byes.

      Best of luck.

      1. Great call Freo Tragic. I think I’m getting Baker and Begley this week. Lloyd next week. Then maybe Bont the week after. Unfortunately i only need two uogrades in defence (Lloyd and Hurn) and my foward line is done. I do need one or two mids but not sure who the ones to get are yet. I have Neale, Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Kelly already with B.Crouch and Rocky potential luxury upgrades later. Thanks for the good advice. I think byes aren’t an issue for my team atm. More about getting the better players and a reasonable price atm.

    1. Have same issue. Getting Begley as his JS is better than Parker. Will be a warm body over the coming weeks. I’m so thin on the bench i cant afford another one to get dropped. If he had of kicked straight his score would have been pretty good also. Especially his first game.
