  1. Currently have Dunkley, Hewitt, Petracca, Mccarthy & Rockliff hovering on my Mid/Fwd benches leaving me with absolutely zero cover this week..

    TU – make a trade (comment what you think)
    TD – stick with these rookies, poor downgrade targets this week.

    1. Stick fat with Petracca, McCarthy and Rockliff.

      I think Hewett/Gresham have lost their chances now. Maybe look to shuffle some players around via DPP and look at Hartley. All depends how much cash you have to do something with the other.

      1. Thanks Huttabito
        i can trade either hewitt or dunkley (i don’t have gresham) to hartley via DPP however I’m a little worries about his job security after what worsfold said about grima mid week..

        1. Sorry, meant Dunkley not Gresham!

          I think Hartley will be a good pick up. There is the talks of Grima, but he was pulled out of retirement and has a history of back problems. Essendon would rather put time into players who will be there next year and not top up players. If Hartley misses, short of injury I think it would be for a rest (Just like McCarthy this week).

          I would go Hewett first, 3 touches last week, not named as emergency, McVeigh back in.. not going to see game time any time soon.

  2. My team,
    Backs – Bartel, Yeo, Adams, Lonergan, Weitering, AMT, M.brown, Brand
    Mid – Gazza, Fyfe, Danger, Parker, Gray, Wines, Libba, Mills, Rocky, Davis, Gore
    Ruck – Martin, Gawn, Wyatt
    Fwd- Hall, Robinson, Wells, Papley, Kerridge, Kennedy, McGovern, Hardwick

    I am trading Rocky for Zorko via Keneddy which will leave me with 27 trades…

    but my question is

    Should I trade Brand to get in Hartley?

    TU – Hold Trade
    TD – Go for it…

    I am leaning towards hold. Help me out please.

    1. Trade. You have too many non-playing rookies (Brand, Gore, Hardwick) to be holding. You will struggle for cash later in the season if you don’t turn over these players.

      1. Thanks mate… I am sold on your previous comment and traded hardwick for Hartley via brown (in forward to loop with AMT, Adams)

    1. I would say so. You either had to start him or get him before his initial price rise. He won’t be a keeper and you will be wasting 2 trades for him to plateau at 400-450k once the 129 drops from his price changes.

      Wasting 2 trades for 110-160k .. not wise!

  3. Would love some tips on whether or not to make this trade.

    I currently have Lonergan and Sheridan in DEF and Crouch in the mids.

    Wondering if I should Trade Sherridan to Hartley so I can upgrade Crouch to a Premo (likely ward or gray)

    Doing the trades will mean on field I will have ATM over Sheridan and the Premo over Davis(GC).

    Is it worth burning the 2 trades?

    T/U – Trade away
    T/D – hold your trades

    24

    10
    1. Not sure why this is unpopular – Hartley while average similar to Sheridan, and Gray will average more than Crouch, who is currently averaging zero. Looks like a clear upgrade to me.

  4. Who is a better rookie to get in with hopes of some decent JS and price rise. Both are named this week.

    T/U Ruggles
    T/D Hartley

  5. should I trade Gresham to Menadue ?

    I have in the mids
    danger, fyfe, gaz, parker, wines, libba, kennedy (melb), mills, bench is davis, Gresham and keays

    tu yes
    td no

    any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks.

      1. That’s awesome news mate. I was coming on here to ask if I should trade him out, but I’ll hold for now.

  6. Does anyone have the numbers for griffin as the lone ruck? From memory he is pretty bloody handy as sole ruckman despite his shocker round one. He has goldstein this week though.

  7. I have Hewett/McCarthy but have bench cover. I also have Rich/Barlow.

    Do I need to make a trade this week. Go Hewett to Hartley for example?

    Not sure

  8. was intending to go rocky> fyfe, but does sandilands out hurt fyfe’s scores, or is he too good to be affected?

  9. Keep a close eye on teams tonight. Lots of talk Priddis & Cripps will not play tonight after failing to pass fitness tests…I’m hoping its just rumours

    1. I’ve taken Richmond at $4.90 and will hopefully hedge my bets if they are a late out, otherwise I will look like a silly boy :/

      2

    2. Where is this coming from Matteo? If Priddis is out, Perth will be able to hear my frustration all the way from the east coast

      1. I’ve traded Priddis in. Was thinking of making him V/C tonight. This is crap. When do we find out if he’s out?

  10. I still can’t make a bloody trade!!
    I hit the T button, it takes me to the next screen but then it doesn’t let me do anything…I hit the little + next to a name, it depresses but nothing happens.
    If this doesn’t fix up soon I’m not playing anymore!!
    Can anybody give me a clue why this is happening, its the same on iPad or PC.

      1. I sent in a help request and the HS SC team have sorted it out, not sure what was wrong but it’s all good now!
        B. Crouch to ??

  11. Average Melbourne supporter here. Stupidly decided to take Tom McDonald as my best defender. Paying for it now.

    With a BE of 135 and his year being shocking so far is it the right time to bite the bullet. Trading to Johannisen gets me a better player and $30k.

    TU: Do it- better player, more cash- stupid not too.
    TD: TMac will come good- keep the trade and back your Dees.

  12. Is Fyfe’s price projected to drop further in the next few weeks assuming he stays around his current 112 average? or bit the bullet and get him in now?

  13. Got dunkley greesham and rocky on bench with hewett dropped. Should i move bartel to mids and get hartley in to avoid donut for one of the rooks? Lack cash generation with mccrathy gone too

    13

    1. Leaning towards Dunkley as not even an emergency and been dropped for 2 weeks now. I feel he is the not coming back to a gun team with his form in a while

  14. What to do with Crouch:

    T/U downgrade a Cow before he’s fat to Ruggles and upgrade Crouch to Hall

    T/D simple downgrade Crouch to Parish

      1. Yeah its a difficult one unless you have 250K sitting in the kitty – I’ve decided on Brodie Smith and will move him to the backline later when cashing in on my backline cows.

  15. Hey guys,

    Is there a chance that the Cats v Bombers game will conclude just in time prior to the Suns v Lions game? I am very certain to go Danger VC Gaz C this week.

    The first game is at 1:45pm, while the following game is at 4:35pm.

    Thoughts? Cheers 🙂

    1. Should finish just in time. Live scores are available on HS website for subscribers OR you could check on QxQ updates in our Game Chat tomorrow. Chonks & Zim have been doing great work there this season. By 3Qtr Time, we should have a fair idea how Danger is going…….

  16. Hey guys,

    Im stuck my team is

    Def: Shaw, Rich, Sheridan Weirtering, Dea and Adams

    Mid Danger, Fyfe, Ablett, Pendles, Cripps, Hall, Liber and Kerridge

    Ruck Nic Nat, Gawn

    Forward: J Kennedy, S Gray, De Goey, Wells, b Kennedy, Papely

    Bench: Mcdonald-tip, Hartley, C Mills, Hewett, Davis, d Wyatt, Menadue, Brown
    I traded T Mckenzie and B Crough to get in Hall and hartley
    (leaving me with 16.6k left)

    but im thinking i should go for Houli or another def.

    I feel my mid is strong but other spots are touchy.

    1. I’m not sure what your question is but for what its worth I think your team is pretty strong. I don’t think you’re much worse off than anyone at this stage of the year. You’ve got the majority of the best cash cows and you’ve made two good trades this week.
      I don’t really rate Gray or De Goey and they’d be the next I’d want to do something with but at this stage the only thing I might do is swap Hall up front so you can put Mills on the field instead of Papley. I think Mills is going to get his hand on the ball more and more as he goes along. Good luck!

  17. Hi guys,

    Papley or Dea on the field (via Marcus Adams & Mitch Brown DPP swap)

    TU: Papley
    TD: Dea

    Thanks guys.

  18. Trading out Lonergan and Brad crouch with 180k cash spare ($840k total)

    TUp
    Go the old boring, Bring in a premo mid + a rookie (Parker, Robbie, ward, etc)

    TDown
    Grown some balls, and make it a POD week and bring in Tom Lynch (GCS) and caleb Daniel to have a killer insane fwd line

    Cheers

        1. Why go with the norm?
          Gray will get 120 a week.
          Lynch could get 100-110….. Caleb could push for 100 and make some cash
          I like the ballsy move

          2

          2
          1. There’s already 2 PODs in Shiel and Cripps and they’re not performing as you would’ve liked. Don’t go POD just for the sake of it

  19. I’ve decided on B.Crouch to M.Hartley this week. This still leaves me with Greene and Barlow in the FWD line who I’m gonna back for the year barring injury.

    T/U – Yay
    T/D – Nay

  20. too late for parish? need to rid crouch from my team and have no cash.

    t/u – yep, that ship has sailed.
    t/d – no, he still has some good cash to make.

    cheers

  21. Hi all,

    Burning question around Tommy Sheridan. Not living up to the preseason hype. Contrarily Gaz is smahing it.

    Thinking Sherdian to Hartley and Mills to Gaz.

    TU: Good trades
    TD: Too early to pull the pin

  22. This week i can go either Hewett or Dunkley to Hartley but it means I would have to put Lonergan in the Mids (I’d like him to stay in my DEF) as its the only way I can bring Hartley in. But I’m torn as it might leave me short in DEF

    T/U = bring in Hartley & put Lonergan in MID
    T/D = save the trade & keep Lonergan in DEF

  23. I have O. McDonald and Gibson both out in the back line, so no cover. Also got Hewitt and Dunkley out in the mids.

    Should I hold Gibson and do McDonald -> Hartley? Or trade Gibson and stick with McDonald, hoping he gets another game? (Or hold both with no bench cover)

    Also is it worth dumping one of the non-playing mids for the poor selection of rookies we have this week? Or is it worth holding both of them and losing a bit of cash generation until there’s better mid rookies to choose from?

  24. I’ve gone B Crouch to A Young
    leaves me with 27 trades and $285.7K
    Team looks like this:
    D-Houli, Laird, KK, Adams, Lonergan, Weitering / Dea+Hartley
    M-GAJ, Gray, Libba, Hall, Duncan, Kerridge, Young, Mills/Menadue+Davis+Petracca
    R-Goldy, Blicavs / Currie
    F-Betts, Wells, Dusty, Bennedy, Barlow, Papley/AMT+McCarthy

    Once a couple of cows fatten, I’ll be looking to strengthen the Mids with whoever is Fit and Firing, and then see what happens in my leagues

  25. Hartley…….was going to bring him in but not so sure of job security now. Will Grima take his place? Can Hartley hold his spot for another 3-4 weeks?

    And Ruggles? Enright, Bews, JKolo waiting to get back in. Plus McCarthy was dropped like a hot potato. Ruggles doesn’t look so safe next week.

    What does everyone think?

        1. Grima has a horrible history of staying on the park. I am not worried in the slightest! They will want to push more game time into a young player on their list than an out of retirement player.

          3

          0
        2. I think Grima is at least a 2 or 3 weeks away. From what I heard wasn’t that impressive in the VFL last week. Also he started pre season training very late compared to the other players. So I don’t think they will play him until his match fit.

          1

          0
      1. Mitch Brown ( the way he’s playing ) is more likely to make room for a Grima like in a few weeks, Hartley is a tall heavy set CHB like, Grima is more a HBF runner!

  26. My boy Cutler hasn’t been living up to expectations and it’s time for him to go. Do I get:

    T/U- Fantasia, $288k, on the bubble with -12 BE. 91 and 87
    T/D- McKenzie, $290k, avg 83 with scores of 90, 64 and 90

    Cheers folks have a good one

    1. hartley or ruggles. Imo neither of those 2 choices will make you enough cash to be worth it. Downgrade to a true cash cow. Also not sure where you are getting your stats from. They dont seem to be correct

  27. How long is B Crouch out for? Should I hold him? Or trade for Hartley/Ruggles?

  28. Quick donuts question VC/C question:

    T/U I use Grimley to VC NicNat into Danger, Ablett or Goldstein and then use Hewett to be able to loophole a potential good score from Menadue.

    T/D I ignore Menadue, commit to taking Mills’ score and use Hewett to VC Danger into Ablett or Goldstein.

  33. Seems to be a lot of doubt surrounding Ruggles, fair enough job security but the kid can play!!

    (Tom Ruggles has capped of his tremendous debut season with the VFL Cats by claiming the 2015 Geelong VFL Best & Fairest Award.)

    1. No doubting his ability. Just quietly, Gore and Jansen can’t get a game in Adelaide & Brisbane 😉

      I just question his spot in the Cats best 22. It looks fairly set without him. I think Ruggles might need an injury or two before he gets a regular game……

  34. Gray or Ward??
    I will eventually have both in my side by seasons end, but not sure who to get now.
    TU: Gray

    T/U Bring in Cotchin
    T/D Bring in Selwood

  36. Looking at a donut in the mids if Priddis is out. Got Hartley and no DPP options to cover.

    Thinking trading B Crouch for A Young ($253k, averaging 97.5, on the bubble – projected to rise $54k (projected 75). I don’t have enough coin to upgrade Crouch to a premo. Looks good to me – am I missing something?

    Thumps up: Do the trade

    Thumbs down: better options out there

  37. SC Draft question guys:

    For Mid 3, play:

    T/U – Shuey v the Tigers
    T/D – Adams v the Dees

    Have played Adams in Mid 3 for last 2 Rounds and can’t complain with his output, especially since Pendles is playing in the backline and Adams playing in the guts more than Pendles. On the other hand, Shuey has been going nicely too…

    Cheers boys

  38. With Priddis now sitting on the pine, I’m left with no mid bench players which makes me very nervous. Haven’t done a trade yet this week, thinking I could trade out Dunkley for Ruggles via DPP (already have Hartley), so that I have a bench on each line…
    TU : Do the trade
    TD: Crazy talk, walk away from the computer…
