Table For Two – Rd4

Written by Schwarzwalder on April 12 2018

It’s Lunch-Time again on Thursday, time for a Table For Two!

In the tradition of Thommo’s 2UP, Table For Two allows you to ask the SCT Coaches all the tough questions while using the Thumbs UP/DOWN function to decide the issue.  Who to play at M8?  Who to take as VC?  Perhaps Selwood vs Selwood?  Martin vs Martin?  Guthrie or Guthrie?  Smith or Smith?  Whatever it is, type your conundrum into the Forum below and the SCT Coaches will help as best they can………

    1. Thanks for the thumbs SCT coaches, as it’s been tight from when I posted this I’ve looked into it a bit more!

      So far in 3 rounds

      Macrae … 92 possessions ( 34 contested ), 16 clearances, 21 inside 50’s & kicked 3 goals

      Oliver … 83 possessions ( 46 contested ), 22 clearances, 14 inside 50’s & kicked 3 goals

      Really want both of them with these stats!

  1. Out – Ryan and Brayshaw
    In – J. Hogan and J.Henry – Opens up Mid/FWD swing but no more Danger Fund

    TU – Do it..
    TD – Don’t do it – Save Danger Fund

  2. I have an issue with my d8. They were used as a plug as the defender I was planning on using was surprisingly not named. My plug is Watson from WCE and he is acting as a loophole as I don’t Olango. I’m unsure whether I correct him to Richards or just hold him using him as a loophole for the year. I am already down to 27 trades so I don’t want to burn out on trades like I always do.

    So do I
    TU Trade Watson to Richards and go down to 26 trades after 4 rounds
    Or
    TD Save the trade and use Watson as a loophole until he potentially gets named as he started week 1 as an emergency. He will give me less cash generation but is a trade more valuable?

    1. Richards was brought in to replace crozier and crozier was expected back next week, but a new update says he is still a month away so this should hopefully guarantee him 4 more games.

      Henry I don’t know much about but Guthrie has been named out for 8 weeks so that should increase his JS

      1. Cheers Nato, for this reason I am leaning towards Richards. I like Henry but read that he minded the resting ruck last week and am concerned he will be first out when Henderson is back in a week or so.

  3. R2 upgrade for lycett

    T/U NicNat
    Pros: scoring 100/game at 50% game time
    Hase the good bye
    Still cheap(ish)

    Cons: will he miss games to manage his recovery from knee reco?
    High ownership (26%)

    T/D Grundy
    Pros: looks like a candidate to be no. 1 ruck this year
    Low ownership (6%)
    Breakout age of 24 and really

    cons: cost almost 100k more
    Will buckley give up on cox as a fwd and make them share ruck duties again
    Same bye as gawn

      1. Leaves you short of one more premo in rd 13. NicNat has the rd 12 bye plays in both rd 13 and 14 when most of the big premos have byes.
        Tbh I can probably cover for grundy in rd 13, its just one of the few cons i could think of.

    1. Why trade Lycett? What were you expecting by round 3?

      He’s made no money but is playing decent footy, and the other rucks are still a mystery.

      He scored 8 tons in 2016, so can score well enough.

      Why not try to make $100k off him while you figure out who the best option is around the byes?

      1. I took a gamble on lycett hoping he’d average 80-90 till rd 10 and then was planning to bring in ryder.
        but I dont think its goimg to work out due to ryder injury and lycett is only ave 69 sharing ruck duties with nicnat. Looking at the projections on too serious lycett wont even make 100k on current average by the rd 12 bye.

        I disagree that the other rucks are still a mystery, the two I have mentioned look really solid and Im missing 30-60 points a game from my R2 by sticking with lycett. Id rather invest in some cheap rookies for cash growth and go back to a set and forget ruck pairing.

        I havent made any trades yet so this is one of my 2 corrective trades (the other is my other failed mid price gamble in jack graham).

  4. TU: Keep Ryan for 10-12 Weeks and wait for him to come back.

    TD: Trade him out now only to bring him back in later.

    1. Trade him and forget about him for the season. At best you’ll be able to grab him as a luxury downgrade for bench cover.

    T/U Fyfe IN

      1. because even in my third season of the AFL SC it appears I’m a clueless idiot when it comes to the said AFL LGCF.. I should have known better.. might have to flip a coin on that 1..

  7. Not many forward rookies with good JS bu need to trade out Ryan.

    TU > Henry. Good JS until Henderson and Taylor return.
    TD > Ratugolea. Interesting choice but Geelong is bereft of big forwards and has no in form ruckman. Takes a strong mark, has kicked goals in two matches to date and pinch hits in the ruck. BE -36 (am i talking myself into this? :))

    Thanks

    1. Zac Smith and Rhys Stanley both named, so Sav might go back to the forward line fulltime. I think Henry is the better choice out of the two

  8. I currently have Sam Hayes as s ruck loop option and Brayshaw as a low scoring expensive rookie. Which should I trade out?

    Up – Hayes (lose the loop man)
    Dn – Brayshaw (cut your losses)

  9. Looking at trade 3 being Andrew Brayshaw to Ed Richards (via Jeremy Finlayson dpp).

    However that would leave Finlayson on the bench at M9, as I currently have Stephen Coniglio at M6 and only Tim Kelly and Nick Holman as rookie priced mids on the field (also Bsnfield and Barry on the pine)

    T/u: Do the trade and pocket the cash (useful sub option).
    T/d Save the trade (Finlayson’s scoring is solid at D6)

  10. Has anyone heard how serious Josh Kelly’s injury is? I dunno if i can afford to keep a premium who will miss a week, im around 500 off the lead,
    T/U trade to danger
    T/D ryan to henry and graham to Heeney/Coniglio
    Thanks in advance

    1. Honestly if you’re half a shot at overall then burn those trades. It’s tough to make up ground late in the season once teams all start looking the same. May as well go for glory.

    2. I’d make trade 2. The idea is you always want to better your team. You will have Kelly + Heeney/Coniglio (2 keepers) but option 1 you just have the 1. You will you notice the difference pretty quick once they are both back.

      If it was 2 rookie swaps and bench Kelly, you could argue to make the trade but not if your total premiums on field this week is the same either way.

      1. I could trade Deleido out over graham, i realized after i posted this if i trade graham/ryan then heeney would take a mid spot from tim kelly and holman. I might have to go croydon or coffield for dpp

  11. 28 trades left guys…
    T/U: Ryan – Crowden
    T/D: Ryan/J.McGovern – Richards/McLean

    Thinking of cutting my losses with McGovern, but trades are gold! Cheers

  12. Looking for replacements for Liam Ryan
    Option 1: J. Henry
    Option 2: J. Waterman (higher price)
    Option 3: N. Coffield (not yet on bubble)

    Please comment any other suggestions. A potential option is to wait another week to try and gauge Coffield more effectively, however, if he bombs, then I potentially have no other options and are carrying two donuts on the bench (Li.Ryan, Giles-Langdon).

    Thanks Community

    1. Hi Dylan, this is probably the most popular question this round, so here are the popular answers, in order:
      Jack Henry (7173 trade ins)
      Mitch Crowden (5959)
      Esava Ratugolea (2418)
      Ed Richards (2317)
      Jake Waterman (1291)
      These are the most popular replacements for Ryan. In terms of overall trades, Henry is slightly ahead of Richards, who is marginally ahead of Crowden.
      Hope this helps!

  13. L0bb out was expected but can’t find anything about how long for so:
    T/U – hold – out for a week and will return
    T/D – trade – out for a while

    Any extra info/ reports on the extent of injury would be appreciated
