How do you plan on using your 2 this week?
Dead set just have to laugh about this year. Such carnage
Howe down to a rookie then Naismith up to one of the big guns for me this week. Seems the only way to go with both of them out for an extended period
Name the rookie. I can’t think of any!
Hill from Freo
or Butler from the dogs are two i’m looking at. Probably Hill at the moment for me.
No real rookie prospects at the moment but there are a few mid-price fancies out there.
Kola had a good first game for 115 and Jordan Ridley has been cruising along nicely but is now up to $410K, Jack Lukosius is looking better by the week.
For a real downgrade you can look at Louis Butler from the Dogs, Tom Williamson or Hayden Young. Stephen Hill had his first game in what feels like years but high risk given his injury history.
And only scraped in a 70, which is basically not far off is long term average, which you could realistically expect would be achievable by Young at a lesser price.
I like Young HH
Another of the 2020 class that looks at home at this level.
He showed enough last week to think he will be a decent cow. He has the Crows and another game in the Hub
( Dees?) before returning to WA for a stretch. $220K is a heap for a downgrade rookie but I feel he will be worth it.
He looks like a pretty handy on field option, and the 106 stays in his price for a few weeks so a half decent score this week, should ensure solid price growth.
I’m also looking at another midfielder this week. This would push Rowell to M7, I’m just not liking the JS of many of the Midfield rookies this year.
Mitchell, Bont and Danger all look like solid choices.
You know it’s bad when you’re forced to hold a $670K midfielder with a dodgy hamstring.
At this stage it’ll be Howe and Stewart out, Wingard and someone else in, which means I miss out on all those cash cows. Ugh. I’ll come back when the headache has gone down a bit.
Hill, Serong and Green, just off the top of my head
I’d just like to trade out the 2020 season.
How long Fyfe out for?
TBA. They hoping it’s minor and he’ll miss 1-2 weeks.
John Noble > Hill (FRE)
Brayshaw > Simpkin or Wingard
Team is cooked regardless
Might be worth leaving Noble for a week to see what the Howe absence does to his scoring, if they go Madgen they won’t want him kicking it as much as Howe did.
Thankfully I do not have to replace Fyfe.
So I am thinking Ridley in Howe out
Cavarra out and Hill in.
I would have like to have got Daniel or Lloyd but that means no Hill.
I have a non playing rookie on each line so I need to get some cash generation happening
Do we think hill has longevity enough to be a trade option. I love him if he does but not sure he’ll stay fit enough and might end up getting managed similarly to Bennell
TU he’s safe bring him in as an option
TD too risky atm especially with all this carnage
I’ve gone thumbs down as Hill is far from safe but if you can get 4 weeks out of Hill at 70+ ave he’s done his job in 2 ways
After losing two of their best runners (B.Hill & Langdon), I think Freo need Hill playing more than Melb need Bennell, who was just a handy bonus.
Having said that, after yesterday’s game the Dees look like the could use anyone who can hit a target.
Glad I dont have many injuries to deal with, but I ain’t trusting Fyfe again. Looking at Duncan just because I feel I can back him in to be nice and consistent while not missing games. He doesn’t go massive but scoring tonnes on a weekly basis is all I need
Do we think Ridley is a downgrade option from Howe
TU He’s looking the goods
TD nah play it safe and go to another premo perhaps a fallen premo
Where can we get supercoach breakevens? Doesn’t seem to be working on footy wire?
‘Breaking Even’ right here on SCT has a big list of them every week.
Breaking Even will be posted here at 5pm tomorrow (Monday). Check back then!
footy wire home page scroll right down to the bottom and there are BE hope that helps
Don’t hate it, Viney isn’t a desperate trade, his BE has gotten high but another 90-100 he’ll lose a little money but it’ll even out
What’s the go with Coniglio playing in the FWD line, lost at sea down there.
T/u Trade to Danger/ Simpkin
T/d Keep, he’ll come good
Brayshaw and Houston will be gone this week. The Swans have a Sunday game in round 5, so Naismith can stay around an extra week as a loophole while I deal with those two. I have a bit of a North-style WARCHEST going, with close to $400K in the bank, so I can probably turn them into whoever I want; still, I’d rather look for value than go too crazy – I’m hoping to use the extra funds for some accelerated rookie upgrades in the coming rounds.
Like it mate especially if you managed to avoid most of the injuries his week, you can get 1-2 upgrades ahead of the pack.
i’m giving brayshaw 2 more weeks when Fyfe is out and hope his scoring goies up
Serong was the one that took his minutes last weekend. Not confident Bray will improve.
Avoided most the carnage this round (except Fyfe, who looks like he could be out a couple weeks).
Viney was brought in for cash generation and his break even is up to 125.
Fyfe > Lloyd
Viney > Wingard
Leaves me with $125k in the bank for an upgrade next week
I should have mentioned I don’t have Simpkin in my team…
Is there something wrong with sc this week? My VC loophole didnt work. Also my floating 0 as well, I didnt get my E score???
Whats your team name?
ThugsMagpies. On my team page I have Gawn and McIntyre as E but they didnt count. My VC loophole worked.
You had Budarick, Rivers, Pickett and Cameron as your emergencies. No scores from Gawn (141) McInerney (74) and Brander (49)
That was on Game Day not my team page. It didn’t update it on Gameday.
Your game day team is what counts for round 4. My Team will show you your set up for round 5
Yes thanks but the Gameday page didnt update the changes I did to my team. Gawn emergency and McIntyre for Bennel (the second one was done before Thursdays game but didnt update on the Gameday page. It’s obviously an error.
Rivers 33 wasn’t needed. All other scores make your 1956 total
Are you looking at the Gameday page? Those emergencies you mentioned are all wrong. On my team page Mcinerney and Gawn are emergencies. Have contacted Herald sun for answers.
Just this week??
How are we all upgrading this year ?
Can’t see where the money is coming
A lot of cow-like objects (see here: http://supercoachtalk.com/cow-like-objects/), plus the handful of genuinely good rookies we’ve got this year.
If you have him, and as long as you were happy with your other Captaincy options, then trading out Neale for $105k profit could be wisely spent (maybe turn Neale and a rookie into 2 other premiums).
Not the craziest idea in the world.
Yes it is.
Going Howe & Naismith to Pittonet & Ridley. About 10k short of being able to get Goldy & S. Hill, which pretty much sums up supercoach 2020 in a nutshell lol
Think you might have missed the boat on Pittonet (unless you’re planning on making him a keeper). His 2 big scores will roll out of his cycle next week, so he’s probably only got 1 more large price rise left in him.
Even if he scores 100 again this week, his B/E next week will probably be around 60-65.
Have to hold on to Fyfe for now, Howe and Stewart are the long-term outs I’m forced into trading.
Howe > Haynes
Stewart > Simpkin (Brander DPP)
Left with just under $40k in the bank
How many games do they have to play to earn money?
Prices change after two games (not three, like previous years).
Who to replace Howe?
TU: Ridley (and have enough cash for 1 up, 1 down trade next week)
TD: Maynard (will probably have to make 2 downgrades next week)
I haven’t watched any essendon games this year, what does Ridley’s role look like? Are Essendon looking to get the ball into his hands as a distributer (similar to Docherty, Daniel, etc)?
I’m a mad bomber and had him from the start. Great intercept mark and clean distributor. One of those 16-18 disposal types that gets 80-90, but doesn’t need too much more to 100+
Bird may have flown price wise.
Long time follower of the best SC site in the biz!
Off to a flyer this year (ranked 605) and would love to keep it going. Generally hate getting mid-pricers but this year it seems to be the way to go.
Thinking of trading Fyfe and Pickett to Simpkin and one of:
Comment – Go for a rookie instead
Not sure if Butler keeps this form up personally, but keen to see what everyone thinks!
Ridley seems the safer option of the two in my eyes.
Nice work man, already got Simpkin so I’m going Howe > Ridley and upgrading Taylor to Butler.
I like Butlers role on the wing and don’t see him slowing down. Haven’t watched any Dons games either so no idea on what Ridley can do.
I have the option to bring in Maynard or Sicily but not sure how Howe being out is going to impact Maynards scoring so bit of a wait and see…
Thanks for the feedback all! Looks like a pretty clear consensus.
Happy Endings, love the bold moves. As a Bombers man myself, Ridley just uses the ball really well whenever he gets his hands on it.
Agree with the wait and see approach on Maynard, not sure if they’ll make him more accountable now that Howe’s out.
Crazy as it sounds, I’m contemplating holding Stewart. I don’t have Howe, Naismith or Fyfe to worry about, but would rather focus on cash gen. I’m thinking of going BZT and C Taylor out, and two of Hill, Serong, H Young and T Green in. Ideally Hill and Serong. Thoughts?
TU – Not worth holding Stewart.
TD – Go for the cash gen, play the long game.
This year I don’t think it’s worth it though check the injury time line of course if somehow its just 2-3weeks it might be the way to go, I jumped early Serong & with the Fyfe injury i’m pretty confident he’s going to be a good rook
Fyfe —> Ridley
C Taylor —> Petracca/B Smith
Thoughts on these trades.
TU – Out Howe and Taylor, In Macrae and Hill.
TD – Out Howe and Noble, In Maynard and Ridley.
2nd option definitely seems better, but ideally would love 1 game without Howe to see what happens to Maynard’s role.
Howe & Naismith OUT
Butler (WBD) and Gawn IN
Any doggies fans know if Butler has any job security?
TU: Butler looks the goods
TD: Butler won’t get games
Who to pair with Grundy?
Thanks Duck, was wondering that myself. Stepson played 1 short without Sause in Tech Team. (JB)
Other option needed as well, (for me)
Who to have with Goldy?
Damn fine tech score with a donut Chamo, well done.
Who to bring in – gaff, Bont or j. Kelly?
Hewett tag this week now
Look how that worked out for Bont
Hewett was on Macrae
Much more likely to tag a Kelly than Gaff. General consensus at the moment seems to be that Gaff runs a lot and gets a lot of cheap possessions but doesn’t do much damage
TU: Howe to Bont
TD: Howe to Maynard/Hayes
Carnage this week, with Howe, Fyfe and Stewart. Howe and Stewart are long term So there out for
TU Ridley, Hill
TD Ridley Williamson
Howe to Saad ??? I’ve already got Doc and Caleb Daniel
Saad can go missing. Can get the same scoring for $80K less with The Riddler
TU – Haynes
Have lost Fyfe, Naismith & Howe. Have most of the main rookies & $517,000 banked
TU. Gawn Lloyd
TD. Gawn Gaff
Really keen on Gaff with a batch of home games n0t far away.
Of the 2 options, definitely Gaff. Can’t justify spending nearly $600k on a DEF at this stage of the season.
I’m bringing in Yeo this week, I think he is under priced and for the same reasons you give for Gaff about lots of home games.
I’m also keeping Brander around for a while for the same reasons as I expect his price to keep going up after some home cooking
*Disclaimer: my supercoach theme song is “I’ve done all the dumb things”
TD: Ridley 107k
When McKenna comes back Ridley will no play the running half back role, McKenna is only 1-2 weeks away, we’ve seen it last year when McKenna played Ridley scores decreased
Interesting point Ku.
Are you a bombers fan?
Yea I am
How do you think it will affect Saad then?
Saad will always be the number 1 rebound defender at Essendon who runs the ball
That’s not quite true. Ridley and McKenna played 6 times together last year with Ridley outscoring McKenna 4-2.
Yeah Ridley May have scored more but it wasn’t consistent 100’s
Thanks guys – all Bombers fans????
Yeah mate and Tacko is right that was the outlier that Ridley beat McKenna but they were all low-scoring shootouts lol
But I like him as a pick this year he’s so mature and his decision making coupled with his disposal efficiency being consistenly high makes for a good calculated punt on him imo
Yeah, that 94 he missed the 100 by so much….
I’m talking about last year’s scores between Ridley and McKenna bro
Thanks Brains Trust
If Fyfe is only out for 1-2, I’ll be holding him.
If that’s the case, I’m leaning towards Naismith & Viney OUT | Butler (WBD) & Haynes/Ridley IN.
Leaves me with $230 or $335k in the bank to complete my forward line next week.
Definitely Haynes. If you’re bringing in 2 potential keepers, 1 of them should be some kind of solid lock (Haynes).
Need to trade out Howe.
Tu; trade Fyfe
Td; trade Houston
(Most likely cop a donut if I leave Fyfe and one of Pickett or Benell don’t return)
Is Dangerfield worth trading in @560k?
TU: Neale (I have the cash)
Comment: someone else
My premo mids are Boak, Macrae, JKelly and Cripps
Father Dougal addressed something similar with the Dunkley injury last week.
The long story short, you might be better to bring in a cheaper option and upgrading a second position, filling two positions.
Completely agree. Spending $763,800 on anyone at this stage of the season is suicide!!!
Howe > Ridley
Taylor > Butler
$110K in the kitty.
Not sure if I trust The Chad yet… but potentially bringing him in for Rozee or Whitfield next week if they don’t turn things around.
Last week went:
Yeo > O’meara – didn’t fire but I’m hoping it’s just a blip.
Sauce > Pittonet – No brainer.
Rozee looks as if he has lost his MID role as his last 2 weeks scores would indicate.
Go with Whitfield, had 24 touches but 62% eff stunted his scoring. Normally a lot better than that.
Howe > Ridley or Sicily?
One leaves me with 110K the other leaves me broke…
Simple question, do you see Ridley as a keeper? Because at $410k, he’s not going to make you a huge amount of money for a future trade.
Plus, we don’t know what impact McKenna coming back in will have on his output.
Go with Sicily.
Howe to Simpkin via Brander play the breakevens this week
Fyfe – undecided just yet possible Macrae
170k banked before trades for Houston to Lloyd next week
Massive changes to fixture this week, due to covid 19 protocols changes in Qld.
See Coaches box for changes
What do we do with Harley Bennell.?
Just sitting there doin’ nothing. Not earning $’a.
Most of us are also holding Pickett
Thumbs up – hold Harley
Thumbs down – trade Harley
Unless we hear for sure he’s out injured for an extended period he may bring a spark Melbourne missed this weekend
Wait for teams
Dunkley>Simpkin (Yes I forgot to trade him out last week 😛 )
TD Better options are out there
Currently need to trade out Fyfe and Jacobs
Tu for Gawn and Ridley
Td for witts and boak/gaff
TU: Howe into Maynard (bank 35k)
TD: Howe into Ridley and Max King into Lukosius
Currently ranked 2740 overall and hoping to crack top 2000 next round.
Ok Cats fans, next on the agenda – Who’s moving to the Stewart role?
So the 115 is not a one off? coz i was thinkin'(?)….
Howe – Kolo so i can……
TU Sause – Gawn or
TD Conroy – Pittonet…….
but i was worried Tuohy could get it!!!
Henderson’s a chance to play
Tu Lloyd and Gaff
Td Crisp and Neale
Can’t afford def such as Sicily Haynes or Maynard if I want Neale
Here’s my thinking. If you are looking at defenders it has to come down to Maynard (with no Howe) or Ridley* if going for a 100 point player at a decent price. Casboult with his dpp might also be worth consideration, as might Saad*.
* Don’t forget the double bite at a score down the track, and that their pricing is currently one game behind.
Rookies you have a lot of options. You could still bring in pre price risers like Stephen Hill, Jake Kolodjashnij (115 on his first game and Stewart out) or Louis Butler, or pony up a little extra for a bit of proof of performance in Williamson or Young (both of whom we were all hot for in preseason).
Probably a bit late for Starcevitch if you haven’t got him yet, and Rivers won’t have inspired you this week.
I’m also considering whether or not going cheap is better forward or defence, and using the Howe money for Petracca or Wingard.
But what’s gonna decide it? As usual, when teams are named.
I’m not convinced of The Chad yet and even less so of Tracs…
I went to The Riddler over Saad as they were scoring similarly and $80 difference.
Two of three injured premiums to two premiums that are about to get injured.
Five injuries in two weeks, plus all those non scoring Dees and a Bomber last week. Sheezus!
Meh,seasons about to get shutdown anyway. Bring on 2021!
Brought in Stewart and Fyfe last week. Big lol.
Half entertained of the thought of bringing in Hill for Stewart and upgrading Pickett into Simpkin in the hopes that Fyfe’s injury is minor.
Feel like the rational response is to go Stewart > Lloyd, Fyfe > Any midfielder under 617k.
I hate this week, a lot.
I brought in Ziebell over Butler and started Fyfe and Stewart.
I concede, 2020. You win.
TU C. Daniel
TD B. Maynard
I rate Maynard, just a matter of whether he’s forced into a more accountable role with Howe now out and the Pies forced to re-jig their backline. Daniel the safe bet.
Thinking of Coniglio to Bontempelli.
TU: Yes, do it
TD: No, Coniglio’s scoring will increase
Yeah, get Coniglio out of there. From the start of the year GWS said he was going to have more stints FWD, with a potentially 60:40 split.
Bont’s got an easy run of games, Dogs’ season at the crossroads and Dunkley is out – he’s coming in for me this week.
Will probably do that trade this week. If I’m trading out Coniglio, it was going to be this week. And Bontempelli is as gettable as he will be for a while.
I held Yeo last week and he still did not fire.
I know the Eagles are struggling and they are returning home soon, but I can’t keep carrying his score.
I can’t afford Neale, and I am looking for a bit of a POD.
TU Taylor Adams
TD Mitch Duncan
Comment Someone else or hold Yeo
I love Mitch but he will drop a 60 soon
He’s had 3 scores under 75 in the past three years (one each of 2017, 2018, and 2019), so not sure why you think that a 60 is inevitable…
Toying with Taylor Adams myself Cougar.
Very Consistent , Good Scoring & hard as a cats head !
Had a few injury problems earlier but looks to be in fine shape ATM
I see his club has signed him until 2024 …. says a lot without saying anything .
I’m thinking of outing >Fyfe & Townsend to…..
TU : Adams & Ridley ( via Brander) or
TD: Gaff & Rylee West
Cheers Coaches Enjoy your week !
If you’ve held Yeo this long, I’d probably hold strong for another fortnight. Once the Eagles get back to Perth they, along with Yeo, will dramatically lift. I’ll be looking to pick him at M8.
If you’re set on off-loading him though, I’d look past Adams. Doing well now, yes, but Treloar’s set to return – surely that affects his output?
Try and find the coin (even it means a one week delay) and get a proven premo in. Whole thing that got you into this mess was a POD – why run the same risk?
After suffering absolute carnage r3 with dons/dees, the SC gods have smiled on me with no Williams Fyfe Howe or Stewart. So, I’m going purely for cash over the next 3-4 weeks as cows mature.
So B Williams to Williamson
And Houston to Young or Hill
Out Houston T Brown
In McCluggage and Hill or Williamson
I’m uncertain who to replace FYFE with:
T/D: M Walters
Comment – Duncan
I already have, Cripps, Titch, Neale & Macrae in the middle
Thoughts much appreciated!
Pains me to say I’m trading Fyfe after having him for 1 solitary week.
Also mindful that I’d like to upgrade Viney to a better premo next week (if cash generation stagnates, especially).
Get on the Simpkin train before it’s too late
Upgrading C. Taylor > Butler
TU Howe > Maynard
TD Howe > Ridley
Maynard leaves me with $2,900 in the bank and I’m committed if he drops because Howe is out. Ridley leaves me with $110K in the bank and got flexibility to upgrade if he drops…
absolute carnage down my end with Fyfe and Howe
Howe to go for:
AND with Fyfe because i got 145.9K in the bank
TU: Trade for Neale
Trade or hold Coniglio????
Looking to replace Tom Stewart who to pick?
So i bought Lachlan Schultz at the start and his break even is 50 his has been terrible
TU: Bench him he can make some money for you.
TD: Trade him for a better player for SC ( if so who should i get i got about $319,400.)
Thanks Supercoach team
Is anyone considering holding Fyfe?
Fyfe > Danger???
Bank the cash?
Who is the better bet –
TU – S.Hill
TD – C.Serong
As a Freo supporter, I would not go anywhere near Hill.
I love the guy, one of my favourite players, but injuries are always seemingly around the corner for him.
Serong looks like he has the makings of a very solid player.
Have 273K in the kitty and not sure which upgrade to do and who to upgrade to
TU: Upgrade Noble
TD: Upgrade Ben Long
Howe, Fyfe, Merrett, Naismith, Bennell, Pickett, Cameron, Sturt… where do you start?
Current thinking is:
Howe > Daniel
Fyfe > Bont
Leaves me $219k in bank.
Team after trades –
D: Doc, Daniel, Sicily, Doedee, Starcevich, Noble (Brander, Rivers)
M: Neale, Jelly, Bont, Oliver, Rowell, Zerrett and rookies – Budarick, McInerney, Pickett, Bennell, Brown
R: Grundy, Pitt (Naismith)
F: Dusty, Whitfield, Ceglar, DSmith, Taylor, MKing (Sturt, Cameron)
Word is Fyfe’s injury is minor (1-2 weeks) and Sturt is a test for this weekend. Naismith I can hold as his price is not going anywhere but definitely need to trade Fyfe to avoid a donut with Merrett, Pickett and Bennell sitting on my Mid bench.
Could do some DPP magic and trade in a Fwd or another Def…(Lloyd or Simpkin)
T/U – Trades sound good
T/D – Think again Stewy
Hey Coaches, a worthy replacement of Howe would be:
Already have the Doc and Sicily in the backline.
TU HOLD FYFE
TD Trade to ONE OF DANGER,MACRAE,GAFF,BONT,JELLY
TU – Saad
TD – Maynard
Already have Ridler
Spewing about the Fyfe injury.
Fyfe > Bont
Which gives me a few options for an upgrade somewhere in the team.
T/u Pittonet > Gawn
T/d Long > Gaff (via Budarick).
I have the likes of Doedee and Nobel who I can also upgrade to a premium. At the crossroads here
Noble is a hold for me until we see how the pies backline works without Howe.
Yeah I’ve read the comments above so I agree with holding Noble. Doedee’s the interesting case as I anticipate Long averaging more over the season. So it might be worth upgrading Doedoee to a Maynard/Daniels/Crisp type.
Thinking of these trades
T/U Fyfe to Bont and Taylor to the Chad
Makes my forward line nearly full premo sort of, B Smith D Smith Whitfield Chad Petracca
But backline still very skinny
With only Doc Sicily and Doedee + noble brander and Rivers.
Plan being to hope upgrade def’s in the next week or two barring the def injury curse this year
Trading Howe and with 50k in the bank I need some more for upgrade season.
What’s the go with Hayden Young – 41, 41, then he pulls out 102 – change in role or just finding his feet for a game? Is he safe? Is he Howe > Young safe?
Im 5k short for Jake Lloyd, so my other options which don’t gain much cash will b e; Maynard/Saad/Daniel
No, Howe-Young would not be safe. Howe was one of your premo backs, so replace with a premo back – you don’t want to give yourself extra messes to clean up in 2-3 weeks.
Trade Conligio or Viney for Bont?
Struggling to decide on a rookie downgrade.
t/u Serong – with Fyfe only maybe missing a game
t/d Green – with Taranto only 2-3 weeks a way
Comment: Young best JS but pricey with a big 109 in his system
T Brown- Serong and Coniglio – Simpkon
Have both Howe and Fyfe and no solid bench support..
Thinking of trading Howe > Lloyd as a safe bet.
T/U Fyfe > Simpkin
T/D Fyfe > Bont (Comment Gaff or other premo)
Have gone Howe to Maynard and Whitfield to Simpkin, feeling a little sideways but is it with this shortened season, missed all the big injuries other than Howe obviously, Saad was my other thought or Toby Green instead of Whitfield and would give me more cash in the bank. Help plz??? Open to all suggestions lol
Keep Whitfield. Waste of a trade. Fix any non playing rookies or under-performing/maxed out players.
Whitfield and Greene are my under-performing players, most of my “cheapies” have got a few weeks at least left. Got Gould, Bennell, Rankine and Cameron they didn’t play last week happy to sit on Bennell and no one jumps out for replacing them, just leaking money with Greene and Whitfield I thought
I have been thinking about Whitfield too…..I have him. Ask yourself…if you didn’t have him, would you get him in at his current price ? Still likely to be a top 6 fwd.
Which 2 do I play?
Noble, Brander, Doedee
Noble & Doedee for me. I guess you can’t loophole?
Thanks Shaggi. I have Bailey Williams too so Defs a bit weak. I’m a 2nd year SC newbie. Thinking of trying loophole for 1st time with Doc into Grundy or Taylor Adams.
After a disastrous r3 when I missed out on about 550-600 dees/dons pts, the SC gods have put a wry smile on my face this week. I see lots of chaos even before team selections, so to not have Williams/Stewart/Howe/Fyfe is almost karma, plus avoiding traps Sauce/Naismith/Cameron from the start.
So, I’ll have a major problem to decide which rookies to get this week, to add to the cow culling in a few weeks.
Hey Wighty, great to hear you are so upbeat. Who would have thought that your beloved dons losing to Carlton by one point would put such a big wry grin on your chops! Karma indeed. Haha
You are a week behind the times RIYP. My grin is about my good fortune with trades this week if you read my post. I have moved on from last week…..someone once suggested to me that I should do that. You should too. Its good advice.
That’s the spirit. Which rookies are you thinking?
Thanks old chap !! They fall into two categories…the cheapies such as Georgiades who would be first choice if picked again, but gonna be difficult at Port…Mahony, Butler, Xerri.
Then there are the likes of Serong, Williamson, Hill, and Young. Not exactly cheap rookies but still have cash to generate compared with some cows who are reaching maturity…T Brown, McCasey, Taylor etc…
I love reading all this but just want to cry! People are talking upgrades, I’m trying to keep my head above water. Last week Dunkley & Sturt, this week plastering over the holes left by Fyfe, Naismith, Howe and Stewart. My appreciating rookies Pickett and Bennell were unceremoniously dumped last week. Brown’s position is looking more precarious, Gould hasn’t had a look in and Houston is running Round in every decreasing circles.
Thank heavens Rowell, Big Maxy and Lachie Neale are starring.
So what do I do to get 22 on the field. I need a defender and a midfielder
TU. Howe and Fyfe to Sicily and either Bont/Titch
TD Howe and Brown to Sicily and Green, hold Fyfe, hope for a speedy recovery and then concentrate on this week’s disasters.
Good luck to those who smugly are upgrading midpricers to fallen premiums
I feel your pain.
Hey, C0vid-22 (lol).
I think the T.U option is where it’s at. Trade aggressively and aim to get 22 warm bodies on field. Also, go Fyfe to Bont – not Titch, he’s gonna cop De Boer this week.
Best of luck.
Gotta agree with GD. Go through all the options, and trust whichever you think will get you the most points this round. Next week is another week.
Maynard and Dangerfield?
Should I sell or hold,
Does anyone know or think they know who the receiver of most of the Howe short kick outs was?
T/U Get in Gawn and Mahoney (for Naismith and Coniglio) with 11k spare this week
T/D Get in Dangerfield and Green/ Hill (for Naismith and Coniglio) with 79k spare [to then trade Stewart and a 260k rookie next week for Gawn and a 117k rookie]
Is Howe to Ridley a good trade then hold Fyfe or do I need to trade him.
Have 270k in the bank if trade Howe to Ridley. Howe to Stephen Hill not too sure
Personally, I’m not sold on Ridley just yet. Need to see how McKenna returning affects the Dons back line. Up to you though.
I think, yes, you have to trade Fyfe. They’ve already moved the goalposts to from 1 – 2 to 2 – 3. Either way, you just can’t afford a benched premo in this short a season.
So, you could go:
Howe -> any DEF premo
Fyfe -> Bont (assuming you already have Neale)
Should leave you with a decent bank as well.
FD…as you may know, I am a mad bombers fan. Spotted Ridley last year and started him this year. He takes intercept marks and de is about 90%….perfect SC game with 16-18 disposals for 90-100 pts. He’s d6 in my final team in this limited trade year. Only thing is his price is now difficult…not an issue if you started him.
that would be GD !!
Hey guys I can go Fyfe to anyone but not sure who. I have Neale, Cripps, Macrae, Mitchell, who do I go to??? Everyone is throwing around names like Gaff but playing Sydney and Hewett is a problem. Someone throw some names of people I can trade to.
Danger or Bont???
I feel this a super tough one, with Dunkley out Bont might see a lot more of the ball, but Danger I feel might be a bit more consistent. But I aint no expert
What about…now keep this under your hat… a POD, coz of suspensions and 1st gamer this year(?) ….Adams?
Have 273K in the Kitty
TU: Noble + Budarick > Hill + Dangerfield
TD: Noble > Saad
Can anyone help me with draft league trades. I have Heppell, but none of my bench are playing. Is there any way I can do a trade ??
Go into your draft league and click on the player you want to trade.
They will be a green box with “All Players”just above Lachie Neale in the trade in section.
Just to the right click where it say’s Free Agents.
This will show all the players still available. You should find some sort of replacement there.
I lost Duursma the other week and lucky for me replaced him with Charlie Dixon. 🙂
Best of luck 🙂
Thanks FT….wish I had known that. Having Gawn c has kept me thereabouts.
Works a treat !!
TU: Whitfield > Simpkin, Howe > Daniel
TD: Fyfe > Bont, Howe>Daniel
Comment, just Howe > Daniel.
Along with pretty much everyone else, trading to cover injury this round. Currently $154K in the bank
Got Naismith as my R2, so the question is do I try to go for Gawn or look at a cheaper option?
TU: Howe->Young; Naismith->Gawn
TD: Howe->Laird; Naismith->English
Could sub in Rich, Saad, Crisp instead of Laird.
The other option I’ve got in swinging Ceglar into R2 from my forward line, but I’d lose my D.Cameron/Ceglar F/R swing.
Yeah, that’s pretty much what I thought. Thanks thumbers.
TU Sicily or Daniel
I see these guys as less risky, you know more or less youll get 100 every week
TD Ridley or Maynard
Riskier but potentially more reward? Ridley is $100k cheaper and Maynard has been pumping out numbers, but McKenna coming back in and Howe out could change things for better or worse. Hmm
I got 15 thumbs down and a lot of hate last week for suggesting to bring in Bont or Danger. I said you will all be trading them in this week and got laughed and abused at. Never rule out an uber premium
Maybe it was your selected options of trading that got the thumbs down? SCT is far from the place where people get ‘abused’. Also this week Bont has dropped 50k overall and on the back of a 166, with Fyfe and Sidebottom out for 2 weeks of course he would be considered by many.
Same with Bont lol,
Made him my VC to top it off.
Sometimes need to trust your gut.
Just cause it’s a different sort of season doesn’t mean similar rules don’t apply
Abused on SCT ??? Name and shame !! I have many “colourful” discussions on here which I love, but never abusive in either direction.
Yeah, it just means you’ll have a smaller Christmas card list to worry about this year…..LOL
Who’s the bigger problem Houston or coniglio????
TU: Lloyd (break even of 137 at $589k)
TD: Caleb Daniel (break even of 64 at $540.5k)
I can afford both players, Daniel is better value for money but I expect Lloyd to score more for the rest of the year.
Fyfe & Howe replaced by:
T/U: Bont & Walters
T/D: Daniels & Walters
Planning to do a DPP swing through Brander to get the Bont in for Howe. while will leave me skinny in defence, but, strengthens my midfield two fold.
With money in my pocket and a few injured players to replace i’m contemplating two up, two down or 1-&-1.
Howe and Tom Cutler (yes, i had him, stop laughing) need to go:
TU – Get the PODs – Parker and Duncan
TD – Get the Freo rookies – Hill & Serong
Leaning towards the double premo line of thinking and i really like the two bankable super unique PODs but the flip side is are the two Freo cheapies must haves?? Parker and Duncan’s BE’s are low 100s so they’re not likely to deviate in price too much from this week to next so i could always take the score hit this week and nab them next week. Just sick of dealing with rookies and want to start upgrade season.
or ……. if you reckon i need to just rethink all of it chuck a TU here maybe
I think that is everyone’s boogeymen this year.
“Do I get points or save cash for next week?”
What if…..should I…….., just toss a coin and hide under the bed or in the wardrobe, and don’t let the boogeymen see what you decide.
As enticing as the double premo option is, I think getting those cows in is the way to go – both showed great signs last week. Although, you could probably get away with replacing Howe and bringing in just one of the Freo cows.
I agree with GD…this may be the last week to get fresh cows before culling of the likes of Brown, Taylor needs to start. I’ll then be starting upgrades week by week hopefully.
Downgrading Howe to Kolodjashnij ($297k, 115 in his first game, BE 2)
Upgrading Naismith to Gawn
Koloddjzzjjrbt isn’t likely to pump out tons every week.
I know he wouldn’t, more of a cash grab. Could go Hill instead and bank an extra 100k though
Tu young freo
Td hill freo
Fyfe, Naismith & Howe to deal with. Leaning to holding Fyfe. Other options below:
TU – Howe & Naismith to Ridley & Pittonet
TD – Howe & Naismith to L.Buter (dogs) & Gawn
Comment – Howe & Naismith to Lloyd & Hill (swing Ceglar to R2)
Who for F6?
Usually I’d say Budarick, but King might nab a couple v Blues this week.
Can you loophole King?
Time to get rid of Dan Houston?
Upgrade him to-
TU: Caleb Daniel
TD: Brayden Maynard
Battle of the Young Gun Mids.
The $500 000 question is….
Who can maintain the rage ?
T/U B Smith “Mullet Dog”
T/D Jy Simpkin. “Speedy Roo”
I think there both solid options for different reasons.
What do you think ?
Took an early punt on Philp which HAS NOT worked out! Now need to decide if it’s worth trading Philp > Serong or Fyfe > Premo.
NOTE: I have no mid bench cover so have to trade someone
T/U: Philp > Serong
T/D: Fyfe > Premo
Can anyone give any insight into the hype around Hill (freo)? I understand he’s at the top of the bargain bin and his best is very good, but I’m worried he will fold like a house of cards at the slightest touch
TU: get him in, the only way is up.
TD: look elsewhere, will be back in the cotton wool in no time
TU: Howe to Ridley
TD: Howe to Daniel
Is Howe to Ridley then Starcevich to Daniel good?
Is Starcevich worth trading into Hill for the 90k or does he still have money to make?
TD: Starcevich will earn more
Tu Fyfe toNeale now
Td Fyfe to Titch/Gaff cause Neale is too expensive and wait till price drops
Best option for fyfe to trade to???
Already have Neale, Cripps, Macrae and Titch.
Bont has not played well the lost few weeks besides last week isn’t gaff a better pick??
Bont getting of the leash last week, 166 from 19 touches, only 575k with a high ceiling,
Gaff is rock solid
So Gaff or Bont do you think??
Best way to sort it is have people vote hopefully they respond to this;
Thumbs UP: Gaff
Thums Down: Bont
I already have bont so going with gaff 😛
TU: Noble + Budarick > Danger + S.Hill
TD: Noble + Budarick > Bont + Tom Williamson
Thumbs up and Thumbs down on this one.
Trade for this week.
Howe to Ridley
Fyfe to Bont
$364k in the bank for next week
Ive got a trade to burn. This will cost me nothing but hopefully earn a few dollars.
Gould (can’t see him getting a game in the near future) into Butler (at least he’s looking like making some coin)
T/U: Howe -> Daniel
T/D: Howe and Long -> Ridley and Wingard
Coniglio-Sturt > Dangerfield-SHill
Via Brander ddp
TU: good trades
TD: Think again!
Can also afford Boak Macrae etc but think Danger better value?
So I really screwed up this year + Players keep getting injured and dropped hasn’t helped me one bit.
So I’m looking for any advice on who I should be looking at trading.
I’m not getting rid of Fyfe though, because I only got him last week. It would be stupid to get rid of him if he’s only out for 1-2 weeks.
Here’s my current team.
DEF: Docherty, Hurn, Laird, Doedee, Starcevich, Noble (Brander, Rivers)
MID: Fyfe, Cripps, Macrae, J. Kelly, Bontempelli, Rowell, Budarick, Green (T. Brown, McInerney, Pickett)
RUC: Grundy, Pittonet (Conroy)
FWD: Martin, Rozee, MacPherson, Smith, Taylor, King (Cameron, Georgiades)
Who should I get rid of, and who to bring in?
Bit of last minute drama here…
Tryna work out who’s a better pickup, Williamson or Serong (can bring either in easily via dpp)
Why are we all doing this…all our plans will go out the window shortly !!
Agreed Wighty – I do so much planning all week, with options A, B & C, then the teams get announced and I’m starting again, with options D, E or F!
And werent we right!!!
Four down in backline…howe, stewart and now noble and brander.
Oh well…not much I can swing out this week.
I feel your pain. I also have Rivers and Starcevich who are named on the bench.
Full primo. Lucky to get a full team!
Never had so many trades bite me in the ass this early in the year.
Will be interesting how many teams actually make full premo
TU – Williamson
TD – Hill
Not sure who to get in, appreciate your input.
Comment: B. Smith.
Looking to bring in a def premo:
T/U Caleb Daniel
T/D Jake Lloyd
Carnage – Trading out Howe and either Fyfe/Zorko
TU: Trading in – Ridley & Bont with $60k left OR
TD: Trading in – Sicily & Simpson with $1.5k left
TU Brander > Corr
TD Noble > Corr
Kolo worth a look?
I do not think rivers or Tom green are playing just by looking at the fixtures what do you guys think.
Surely Green gets another game this week after last week’s effort.
T/U noble> daniel
T/D noble > hill
lots of upside to hill at his price point but will he stay on the park?
TU – Crisp
TD – Ridley
Comment: Sicdawg, Daniel
Looking at Howe out for one of the others, and bring in Hill for either Taylor, Brander or Noble
TU Howe-> Hill; Fyfe->McRae
TD Brander->Hill; Fyfe->McRae, and leave Howe on the bench with his $$ to use next week
Brander to Ridley and Fyfe to Dangerfield
TU – S.Hill
TD – H.Young
or can I get them both and double upgrade next week? Simpkin this week though?
Want to bring in Hill. Who to get rid of
T/U Pickett – can use Brander to loop King’s score
Want to bring in a rookie defender to replace noble. saving brander as he is DPP
T/U – Hayden Young
T/D – Stephen Hill
