  1. Roughead to Nankervis

    T/U Yep Nankervis won’t be this cheap again

    T/D Nup rough will improve once Hawks get some wins on the board

  2. McCarthy for Hoskin-Elliot is definitely happening for me.

    I’m reluctant to make another trade. Hrovat is someone I signed as a POD at 301k, in the hope that he may be A prolific on-baller of sorts in the renewed North Melbourne lineup. He’s contributed very little so far, so tempted to trade him out. He’s breaking even at 72 this week, so could afford to hold out for no great loss/gain (he should score between 50-80), and see how Ryan Burton tracks in his second game of the season. He impressed last week.

  3. Pretty happy with my team at the moment:

    DEF
    Adams, Laird, Docherty, Tuohy, Marchbank, Otten (Stewart, Hampton)
    MID
    Danger, M Murphy, Bont, T Mitchell, Fyfe, Beams, Watson, SPP (Parfitt, Pickett, Hibberd)
    RUC
    Witts, Sandilands (Preuss)
    FWD
    Nank, Dahlhaus, Steele, Butler, Roughead, Houston (Taranto, Eddy)

    Only trade i’m considering this week is Hibberd OUT for WHE IN
    Only downside is i lose that DEF/MID DPP in the middle and need to move Taranto to MID

  4. Looking at hanners out for Murphy.

    And then smith out for either houston or otten. Otten JS longterm worries me, plus that’ll leave me with 3 crows + adams and shaw who share a bye round. Houston will struggle with both hartlett and pittard to return. SPS is another option i guess

    May also hold smith a further week to see how newman/balic look. Decisions, decisions

  5. Marchbank Vs WHE? Would love to have both but I can only afford one of these guys from rookie trades, and have no interest in culling potential premos to fit both in.

    TU: marchbank in for non-playing smith
    TD: WHE in for underperforming mid or fwd (bowes, parfitt etc) or whichever mid/fwd gets dropped this week, look to do smith to Newman next week.

    Cheers.

  6. Is Taranto to WHE worth the trade, currently will be my only trade this week. Could trade Roo down and bank the cash but I want to hold him.

    TU Taranto > WHE

    TD Hold

    16

    28
  7. I want to offload hibberd and florent, but only have 50k in the bank….

    What should I do? I already have Butler, WHE, SPP, Picket, Otten, Hampton, Eddy, Barret

    I would like Houston but can’t fit him in my forward line , unless I trade out eddy

    Otherwise I might just hold my trades

  8. Callum Mills – I watched the game closely on Friday night and he seems to be playing a very defensive role, generally playing deep back, probably covering for Rampe. I picked him because I felt he could improve from 78 last year to 90-95 and be a Top 10-15 defender this year. That doesn’t look likely at this stage with a more defensive role. I have the cash to trade to his team mate Jake Lloyd, who certainly looks like getting more midfield time.

    T/U: Trade Mills to Lloyd
    T/D: Keep Mills

    15

    11
  9. I have gone:

    Picket -> WHE
    Florent -> Hannan

    Allows me to keep Taranto.

    Have all other main rookies.

    Good trades?

    26

    1
      1. Florent not going to make much cash. Hannan should score well as seen from his 1st game.

        Mainly need the $$ from Florent to Hannan to go Pickett to WHE, otherwise i have to get rid of Taranto, who i want to keep

  10. Currently Thinking…

    Mills –> WHE (via DPP)
    J Smith –> Otten

    Leaves $210k for an early upgrade

    Rookies I currently own: Hampton, McGrath, Marchbank, Hibbed, Stewart, SPP, Barrett, Parfitt, Pickett, Eddy, Butler and Taranto

    TU – knock your socks off
    TD – your crazy

    29

  11. My dilemma is:

    TU: I get WHE and Marchbank and pocket 240k in the kitty

    TD: I get WHE and Murphy and pocket 47k

    28

    2
      1. He will score better though.. One extra premium in the mids would help. Do we think Marchbank is a potential D6/7 or will he drop off?

        0

        1
        1. I think he will drop off and smurph has potential top 10 capability.

          But, early cashflow is critical for later upgrades.

          Smurph won’t continue to score 130 ppg, but he certainly looks in for a good season.

          1

          0
  12. Team is travelling well at the moment (ranked 224 overall), but I think this year it’s important to make sure cash flow is available with the poor crop of rookies. That being said, I am thinking of the following trades:

    Out: Taranto & Hibberd
    Taranto is scoring alright, but won’t generate cash quickly and has shaky job security

    In: Hoskin-Elliott & Houston
    Houston also has concerns in regards to job security, but could build up value relatively quickly if he holds his spot

    Thoughts?

    14

    3
      1. Hibberd will be in the MIDS. Trade him out, move some like Pickett/Parfitt from your FWDs to the MIDS, which will let you bring in a FWD into the empty spot.

        6

        0
        1. Exactly right, Hibberd in MID at the moment and his spot will be taken by Parfitt for this trade scenario

          1

          0
  13. What do we think of florent & Simpkin will they have a big score or not soon?

    Could go Simpkin to butler/houston & then florent to WHE via Taranto to mids

    Fwd line would then be Dahlhaus, Macrae, Lynch, Roughy, Nankervis, WHE with Butler & Eddy on bench with Steele, Taranto, parfitt &Pickett in mids

    6

    1
    1. I got rid of Simpkin last week Twitch. I watched his first game and it was extremely underwhelming! It convinced me that he is still a few years off being SuperCoach relevant

      4

      2
      1. Yeah I went to the north game last weeekend, he looks too small for the contest tbh, I’m more hesitant about dropping florent as he was second highest scorer for swans at half time but just dropped off, so I think if he could run out a game he’d gets decent score

        2

        0
  14. Already a big regret choosing to go with Shaun Burgoyne, thinking it’s time to upgrade to a true premo e.g. Adams.

    T/U: Do it!
    T/D: Hold

    26

    13
    1. Dead split! Any reasons guys?
      Looked at his previous years after his round 1 stinker, and he hasn’t averaged over 90 in 4 of the past 6 seasons. Was hoping for possibly more midfield time with his finish to last season but he looks too slow this year

      3

  15. I was not going to trade with this week , but just do not like having 200k in the bank sitting there.

    T-U Be aggressive with 2 Trades Florent to Houston and Taranto to burnman Higgins

    T D Hold both trades and save cash for an upgrade later. Houston JS shaky and the burnman could just burn.

    5

    22
  16. TU: Roughy out WHE in
    TD: Don’t get WHE
    Reasoning is that roughy is my only option to get WHE in and I am concerned that I wont be able to generate cash with weak rookies this year

    8

    13
    1. Then you should use trades to get rid of your weak rookies and get the right ones – they are out there! Roughy is improving and has the Gold Coast Witches Hats this weekend – if you trade him out, you just know he’s going to go bang.

  17. Should I trade:
    A. Dahl to higgins and hrovat to nank
    B. Reiwoldt to higgins and hrovat to nank
    I want to get a bit of cash to get nank and I think higgins is a good pick?

    25
  18. Houston do I have a problem?
    I Didn’t start with Houston..
    Is it worth trading Florent to Houston ?
    Tu get on the Houston train
    Td watch and wave goodbye from the platform

    4

    19
    1. Wait for teams to be announced, will be interesting how Houston goes with pittard likely to come back does Houston keep his spot? Does his scoring output decline with pittard in the team

  19. Having second thoughts about trading Taranto > WHE

    2 solutions

    TD: Taranto > WHE (Pickett left on MID bench) $250k leftover

    or

    TD: Pickett > WHE (via DPP – Taranto moves into MIDs but stays on bench) $150k leftover

    Help a brother out

    29
    1. Rookies I have: Otten, Hampton, Marchbank, J.Smith (!), Barret, SPP, Pickett, Hibberd (!), Butler, Houston n Eddy.

      Like the look of Hayward and Newman next. Harley Balic (MID/FWD) should get a run this week too

  20. I’m going down the path of early aggression and have gone with the following trades this week:

    T. Lynch to WHE
    Ablett to The Bont

    Both of these trades essentially aren’t necessary however the result is 350k and in my view a stronger team.

    I’m happy with the rookies I have at the moment.

    21

    3
  21. Happy with only using the one trade this week but maybe Steele > Oliver?

    T/U – It’s Clay’s year
    T/D – Keep Steele & that trade moron

    3

    21
      1. Yeah that’s what I figured. Was happy with Steele in round 1, I just hope that Oliver doesn’t become a top 10 MID & that I missed out. I’ll stick with Steele!
        Cheers mate

  22. Had a last minute R1 midfield 3-way with Handball Crouch/Ollie Thighs/Clary Oliver.

    Clearly I selected Crouch as I’m asking the question:

    Option 1 – Crouch>Oliver & Pickett>WHE
    Leaves me with $50k in Bank

    Option 2 – Taranto> WHE
    Leave me with $5k

    Keep up the fine work!

    14

  23. This probably sounds dumb . Would like some feedback.

    Dump Gawn and Pickett for Nank and upgrade to Danger from JPK (Danger is not going down)

    or
    Taranto for WHE only

    1. Back in Lynch. He’s been getting better each season and will still be a top forward by seasons end. He’s KPP, there scores will fluctuate but I can guarantee you were smiling with his 101 Rd 1 score. To much chasing points on those trades.

      How much do you have in the bank?

      2

      1. Cheers Huttabito.
        Worried that GC look awful in terms of service to him (as I was expecting an improvement in their overall fortunes this season) and he looked disinterested on the weekend. Was a touch lucky for his 101, was all in that spell where he kicked a couple to keep them in the game.
        $6.6k. Very little room to move for Marchbank, who I don’t necessarily see as a must, but very useful.

  25. I want WHE but only options to trade out are Roughy or Taranto. I can see pros & cons for both, but if I look at it that generating cash for future trades is more important than points scored, then Roughy needs to be the one I let go of, as I think Taranto has more cash to be made before he gets traded out closer to the buys.

    But I need to see the thumbs to help with my decision
    TU – Roughy to WHE
    TD – Taranto to WHE

    Comment to not bother with WHE at all and settle for the choices I made Round 1.

    4

    15
  26. Should I trade Roughy to a premo in the Mids such as Bont? I can do this through some extra cash in my reserve and some DPP shenanigans

    T/U Yes, cash out now

    T/D No, hold him, he’ll improve to be a keeper

  33. Got no cash only reason Roughy is making way… I’m sure he’ll do ok this year not sure top 6 fwds though .. also thinking of cash generation of future with lack of quality rookies ….

    Roughy – WHE
    Smith – Marchbank

    Thumbs up – great trades pull the trigger don’t think twice…..

    Thumbs down – wasting trades with minimum improvement hold your horses…

    1. I am considering the same move but it’s gonna hurt if Roughy finds his feet. Keep in mind he’s missed a lot of football.

  34. I need to get rid of one of Smith or Hibberd this week to bring in Marchbank. Who should it be?

    Is it better to keep Hibberd with the DPP status? Or is it better to keep Smith as frees up $8K extra and better loophole opportunity for Melbourne games for first few weeks.

    T/U -Keep Hibberd.
    T/D – Keep Smith

    11

    1
    1. If your considering keeping one it has to be hibberd as the dpp swing could come very valueable at some stage, plus smith is injured so there’s no way he is getting another game this year

  35. Currently only 200 points off leaders. I think i only need WHE and Houston.
    T/U: Taranto, Hibberd out for these two.

    T/D: keep 30 trades.

  36. Like many others I have no clue what to do this week

    DEF: Doc, Adams, Laird, Marchy, Hampton, Stewart (Otten, Hibberd)
    MID: Danger, Rocky, Titch, Fyfe, Treloar, Beams, Swallow, SPP (Barrett, Pickett, Mountford)
    RUCK: Grundy, Sandilands (Strndica)
    FWD: Dahl, Macrae, Roughy, Nankervis, Taranto, Turner (Eddy, Butler)

    Trades for NEXT week:
    Hibberd – Newman
    Mountford – Miles/Balic

    1.6k

    My thoughts on this week:
    – Really keen on WHE for his low BE and scoring potential
    – Increased interest in Houston now that Hombsch is out however the article stated that Jackson Trengove is likely to take up his role
    – Roughy v Sandi. Do I back Sandi for a 90+ average? Barely spotted him last game but his BE of 1 means he’ll shoot up. Roughy on the other hand hasn’t done much but neither have the hawks, as a fan myself once we get rolling Rought will have a bigger impact and get more points. BE of 56 means he won’t go up that much if he keeps scoring 85 or so. Its a matter of who generates more cash
    – Taranto has a high breakeven for a rook but I reckon his contested possies will keep him up at the 70 range
    – Turner is the one I’m debating about. -27 BE or something like that, his score of 70 odd last week was only boosted by 2 goals and plenty of tackles, I can recall him only getting a touch or 2 in the first quarter. Plays GWS and Doggies next 2 may struggle
    – Aggressive trading may be the way to go given how settled our MIDS and DEFs are

    T/U
    Don’t make a single trade given I have rooks that may not make cash quickly but will make money. TRADES ARE GOLD

    T/D
    1) Sandi – WHE (via Nank) & Turner – Houston
    2) Roughy- WHE & Turner – Houston
    3) Turner – Houston & Taranto – WHE

    Sorry for the essay in advance, help would be greatly appreciated

    1. Turner score was boosted by 2 goals and plenty of tackles because he kicked 2 goals and got plenty of tackles. I have him as fwd emergency very happy with him there, have eddy f8. Don’t have houston or butler. f4-f6 is rough, nank, whe. Loving seeing people trade out rough im keeping my 30 trades (unless injuries) until culling time. Was leading overall at this time in 2015 and made reckless trades and basically self destructed my season by trying to keep ahead of the other 230,000 coaches instead of running my own race. I personally wouldn’t trade out any of the players you are suggesting to trade out but admittedly if i didn’t start whe I’d reckon I’d be trying to get him in. Stunned he didn’t start in 50% of teams or more tbh. Good luck for 2017 Frank

    1. NRoo is a “sneaky chance” to come back this week.

      Either way, you’ve held him for a week and he’s due back sooner than later so you have to hold now.

      8

      0
    2. Held on to Nroo, and have been lucky enough to swing WHE’s 120 in last week using him… He’s currently my loophole pawn, this week for Butler/Eddy… He’s shown me that he can run the wing at 34. I think he’ll pull through just fine, but be prepared for some cotton-wooling. Even so, to me he’s a top 8 FWD easily.

  37. I think I’m in a decent position right now, but the player I want to try to get in my team is WHE.

    The only way I can do this is straight swap Taranto, or trade Pickett/Florent for Eddy/WHE.

    I’m reluctant to do either as I believe Taranto is solid, and Eddy has little job security.

    Should I:
    (UP) Save trades or;
    (DOWN) Pull the trigger?

  38. Hi SCT, love all the hard work you guys put in week in week out!
    Sorry for the long post, I’m just after some help deciding.
    Currently my teams is:
    Def: Laird, Docherty, Shaw, Rance, Otten, Hampton (Stewart, J.Smith)
    Mid: Dangerfield, Martin, Fyfe, Beams, Treloar, SPP, O’Meara, Hannebery, (Barrett, Florent, Parfitt)
    Ruck: Gawn, Sandi (Preuss)
    Fwd: Dahlhaus, Butler, Roughead, Houston, Turner, Taranto (Eddy, Pickett)
    with $40,300 in the bank.

    There are three players I’d really love to get in this week (Marchbank, Nankervis and WHE) but just two trades.

    Couple of options:
    Hannebery + Florent -> WHE + Nank via dpp
    Hannebery + Smith -> Marchbank + Nank or WHE via dpp

    I know Hannebery will come good at some stage but he is about to loose a whole lot of cash in a year where it will be hard to come by.
    WHE and Marchbank would make some quick money at the same time as gaining some valuable points. However I’m not sure that either will be a keeper for the entire season. Newman is on the radar for next week depending on how he goes this week. If I was to get Marchbank this week I would loose my captains loophole (unless someone is dropped when teams are named) and I wouldn’t be able to get Newman next week.
    Nank has the potential to be a top 10 fwd this year and would also be great ruck cover (Preuss-> Strandica after byes).

    Which two should I get?
    T/U – Nank and one rookie
    T/D- Two rookies
    Comment for which rookie/s to choose
    Everyones thoughts much appreciated Thanks guys

    1. Very good side Emma honestly don’t think you need marchbank with the 4 premise you have there.

      Also think you could get away with holding Hannebery
      Question to you is who do you see as finishing in your team out of hanners & roughy,

      You picked your Pernod regardless of cash loss so it should be that way

      Proposed to you roughy to nank & Turner to WHE

      0

      0
      1. Thanks Twitch! I did see Hanners finishing in my team. It’s just the fact he is predicted to drop about $77,000 this week then $53,000 the week after that’s making me even consider dropping him now. I’d probably pick him up again later in the season when his form started to improve hence wasting a trade.
        As for roughy I had hoped he would return to his best and be in the top 10 fwds for the year (Not looking like it at the moment), making some money on his way. Not sure about getting rid of him this week though as he is up against gold coast and should hopefully go large. I’ll certainly consider your suggestion though. Thanks again

        1. 200k loss and poor scores is justification of a trade in the same way 200k is justification for cashing out a rookie.

          If you can combine it so you avoid losing 200k and make 200k (eg hanners to smurph or whe) then totally worth the trade.

  39. Should I trade N Riewoldt for WHE? This maybe my only option in getting WHE as don’t want to Trade Roughhead or Taranto

      1. Yeah, if he stays fit I’m thinking M8, Higgins and Wines are the other two I considered, but Higgins… well, his history speaks for itself, and Wines just hasn’t convinced me he’s an keeper-prem yet (getting there tho!).

        My mids are: Danger, Fyfe, Beams, TMitchell (which are my likely keepers) then Steele, O’Meara, SPP, Barrett, Parf, Pickett and M.Hibberd (my swingman for T.Adams in DEF).

        Murph would leave me with 3 upgrade spots for the likes of Pendles, Jelwood and whoever exposes himself as a new uber-prem.

        Any good? Or should I be cutting out the Hibberd swing for cash generation? Houston is the only real cow I don’t have, and I rate Butler over him.

        0

        1
        1. Nah if you have all the good rookies apart from Houston then I think you can afford to miss him ( shaky JS anyway)
          Yeah Murphy could be a decent M8 but obviously he can’t handle a tag I like it but expect low scores too

  41. Think this year might be the changing of the old firm in the mid field lot of mid pricers standing up and maybe becoming elite. Soon

    T/u J Steven to C Oliver yes fellas i think he is the real deal

    T/d your delusional save the trade

    1. If you think Oliver is a Top10 MID for the year then trust your gut. Personally I think there are enough proven elites that will finish ahead of him…..

    TU: Spend $40K and get Lloyd.
    TD: Spend $106K and get Laird.

    Comment: Other (before anybody says Marchbank, I brought him in last week).

  43. Back to my regular team… what to do with Pickett?

    TU: Butler.
    TD: Take the first price rise, and hope that Hayward holds his spot.

    Comment: Other.

  44. Jack Steven out for:

    TU: T. Mitchell – just the one trade don’t have Marchbank/WHE but have pretty much all the cheaper rookies

    TD: M. Murphy and either Marchbank/WHE

    Thoughts?

    1. That’s a very tough choice I love the Mitchell pick actually wish I kept him in my side,
      Could you get WHE & Marchbamk this week then bring in Mitchell next week

      1. I could but worried about Marchbank/WHE not scoring well. Murphy ATM is at least likely to get 100+ scores

    1. Very ballsy move! If you still have 30 trades then why not back yourself in? Having said that, there should be some good rookie options over the next few weeks if you want to wait…..

    2. With Laidler being omitted, he looks like he might get a fair go. Balls in his court, the decision is in yours.

  45. How much coin do people think Heath Shaw will drop by this week with his 159 b/e? Should people think about trading him out for a prem like Laird, Docherty or Johannisen & $$ & then grab him back when he bottoms out?

    1. That is a horrible idea. He is a premium and will be in the top defenders for total points. Trade him out and you will miss the 120s/130s he will have in the next few weeks only for you to trade him back in and he’ll have another quiet game again.

      In a limited trade format, like SuperCoach, you will run out of trades making moves like that.

      Back them in, trade around the rookies, and upgrade the last few premiums when you have the money.

      1. Agreed. If we were talking about a format like AFL Fantasy, on the other hand, my answer would be very different.

        1. I wouldn’t completely rule it out but agree at this stage of the comp probably not a wise move.

          I recall a few years ago one of the top teams doing a shark move with Fyfe I think it was, around or after the bye rounds. Don’t recall if it worked or not or the logic behind it but was very impressed with the ballsy move.

  46. J Smith (injured) -> Otten is done

    Then
    T/U: Taranto -> WHE
    T/D: Roughead -> Nankervis
    Comment for: Don’t waste the second trade!

  47. Considering bringing WHE in and possibly Butler
    Have Parfitt, Florent, Bowes and Pickett who I can trade out. Which of these 4 have the worse JS?

  48. Am I mad for considering booting Goldy? I’m worried about him already missing a JLT as well as a H&A game this season, North playing him with Preuss so he’ll probably play 50% forward, and feel like if he’s sore at any stage he’ll have a rest as Preuss is turning out to be pretty handy. Thinking if I trade to Grundy (who looks set for a massive year, clear number 1 ruck) now and make 60k in the process it’s a pretty good result. Team is reasonably set with all the must have rookies

    TU – Go for it
    TD – Your’e crazy

    1. Would normally say no but there are a few conditions……
      ONLY if you have a decent set of rookies in your team already & ONLY if you haven’t used any trades until now. Otherwise I’d stck with Goldy…..

      1. Thanks for that, I tick both of those boxes so think I’m going to go for it. One premium correction trade should be ok

    1. I’m in a similar position, Mark. Would like to have WHE in my team but I’m letting that ship sail. There’s been plenty of rookies named this week. You should have a couple options in two weeks time. Hopefully until then, Turner should have appreciated in value……

  49. I’d love to get WHE in but I’d need to boot Roughie who I think will get better with more games.

    Just 1 trade I think, Joel Smith out for Butler via DPP.

  50. Weighing up a couple of trade options: –

    TU: Bring in Newman (loophole 2morro) and Houston for Joel Smith & Darcy Cameron

    TD: Bring in Marchbank and WHE for Joel Smith & Roughie

    Decent team, ranked <3400 with most of good low priced rookies already: –
    Shaw, Laird, Tuohy, Otton, Hampton, Stewart, M.Hibbert, J.Smith
    Danger, Pendles, JPK, Fyfe, Murphy, Beams, JOM, Swallow. SPP, Parfitt, Picket
    Goldy, Sandi, Preuss
    Dahlhaus, Nankervis, Wingard, Steele, Roughie, Butler, Eddy, D.Cameron
    Comments welcome

    1. As much as I rate ruffy and think he’ll be a good long term choice, the cash generation of March and WHE is undeniable. On balance ruff is your 5th fwd as well so you’ve already got good mid price options so very little sacrificed considering the JS of WHE

      1. Thanks mate. It’s a tough call for which way I’ll go. Zero trades to date, but only 15K in the bank hindering me

  51. TU: T Boyd + C Hampton out… WHE + Marchbank in
    TD: Get your finger off that trade button.

    Any thoughts?

  52. I can finally look seriously at my trades with coloured dots lighting the path to sanity.

    I’m giving up on getting in WHE. The only way I can do it is via Roughy or Taranto and I don’t want to trade out either of them. It’s wasteful and trades are worth more than an over-performing Pie who’s price will rise around the same as Houston. I’d love to boot Florent but the options are thin so I’ll ride it out and hope he finds some form vs the Pies. So instead the plan is to cross my fingers for some JS and go:
    Round 3 – M. Hibberd out, Houston in (via dpp)
    Round 4 – J. Smith out, Newman in (if still named next week), plus maybe a Florent trade

    T/U Looks good
    T/D You can do better

  53. TU – 2 trades
    H-Smith to WHE via DPP
    J Smith to Stewart (Hibberd, J Smith both on bench)

    or

    TD – 1 trade
    Just WHE

  54. Looking at Florent to Butler and Strdanica to Preuss as they have extremely low break evens, thinking Florent is going to be to slow a burner and Preuss a good money maker but job security ???.

  55. Do i trade or hold gaz, leaning towards trade just doesn’t look himself out there

    Thumbs up- trade
    Thumbs down – hold

  56. Whats your thoughts on:

    Trading out: Hannebery and Hibberd –>

    Trading In: WHE and Butler (to make $)

    then pocketing $417k in the kitty which means I can upgrade one of the rookies to a performing/ in-form premium

  57. t/u move florent to fwd line via dpp (swap for j Steele), then trade florent to Houston. Bank 40k

    This would also mean I would bench SPP and use Butler on the field (in fwd)

    T/d don’t waste your trades keep them
