  1. 4 left with premiums in all spots but will need to waste one on Selwood when I was going just to replace Martin with Gawn.

    1. Yea same here. My last trade and can only afford someone for selwoods going price as have nothing in the bank. Beams looks like the best option at this stage. Don’t want to trust him but i don’t see anyone better?

      1. Menagola if you have a spare $5k could be a smoky. Always lifts and gets more MID time when needed and with J.Selwood out, he could come home averaging 105.

        1. We think alike Hutta. My choice is between Menegola and Gibbs. Gibbs worries me with the tag. Without selly i expect menegola to score well. Averaging 97 worth a punt to loophole with greenwood

            1. Gray has been getting a lot of midfield time with Wingard out – might want to double check when he’s expected back

  2. Have to trade out Selwood. Held Wingard and was looking to trade to Toby Greene. Only 2 trades left and hoping Wingard might get up to give me some wriggle room.
    Through to prelim in one league but in an elimination in the other. Ken Hinkley at tonight’s presser spoke of Wingard being available next week. Let’s hope.

  3. Using my last trade on getting Jelwood out, leaves me $537k left. Who to bring in?
    Sloane, Murphy, Gibbs, Ross, Ebert, Heppell, Parker, Menegola, Rich

    Thoughts appreciated guys

  4. Had to get Danger out to have a chance at winning my elimination final, it’s time to get the great man back in.

    I need some extra bank to dump Selwood for Danger and I really want to get rid of Shaw. I’m breaking the never trade premos rule, but do people think he’s a better option than Ryan and Scharenberg for the rest of the season?

    TU Selwood >- Danger and Shaw >- loophole rookie
    TD Selwood >- Danger and Scharenberg >- loophole rookie

  5. Need to offload selwood as well
    Tossing up between neale, zorko, josh kelly.
    Who has the the most potential to go large in the last three rounds?

      1. Yeah I think Ive narrowed it down to him and Zorko. Kelly has been consistent but doesnt go as large as the other two. Zorko has the better schedule (Suns, dees, Roos) vs Neale (Swans, tiges, Dons) but Neale is less likely to put up a poor score (his one poor score was in the torrential rain against the crows) plus he scored well against tigers / dons earlier in the season.

  6. Jelwood going with my last trade:

    T/U Doc via Adams
    T/D Neale as a straight swap

    Money is no issue, just the trades!

  7. In a dilemma atm…..
    I have Jelwood just sitting there and he obviously has to go but i only have the 1 trade…. I can bring in any single player of my choosing as i have 650k to work with.

    I am just concerned about having no trades left with no ruck cover, so if Ryder or Mumford are out i am stuck with a doughnut. So i am stuck with either going risky and bringing in a premium mid or moving dahl to the mids, Ryder to fwd and bringing in Gawn so i have cover to work with for the last 3 weeks.

    I already have Neale and Titch so my last prem choice is Dusty or Zorko
    so
    TU Jelwood —-> Dusty or Zorko
    TD Jelwood —-> Gawn for ruck coverage

    1. My thinking is that guys like Kreuzer and Gawn have been scoring like premo midfielders lately anyway, so you may as well get the bonus ruck cover

      1. Mumford is out for a week so 2nd option is a must just whether it should be Gawn or Kreuzer

        TU Gawn
        TD Kreuzer

  8. Its only monday but I’m thinkingโ€ฆ.

    Jellwood out for Rocky. +$

    Next 3 vs Suns / Melb / North.

    T/U Crazy talk. Think again.

    T/D Will go large if he can stay fit for 3 more games.

      1. You’re right. Crazy butโ€ฆโ€ฆ…

        I may still bring him R23 V North if I have a trade left.

        Even B.Maynard can ton up vs the Kangers what will Rocky do at the Gabba!

        I will be eagerly awaiting polls on Jellwoods replacement.

        M. Crouch looks the goods on his recent form.

        1. I was hoping to have some trades up my sleeve to bring in rocky as m9 He could be really handy in the finals.
          Unfortunately I have copped walters, pendles and selwood last few rounds so will be using my last trade on a safer bet at m8 and just hope ryan, greenwood and nank/lynch will provide adequate cover for last 3 rds.

  9. last trade and have to use it for selwood ๐Ÿ™ dont have much in the bank so thinking of only these 2 players

    TU Gray more midfield time lately and easy run home for port
    TD Trealor Still abit inconsistent but can go big

  10. Had planned on using my last trade for Jelwood –> Neale. Great idea until Brundy managed to get two weeks!

    Only have Darcy as cover, so Brundy –> Kroozer

    Godmanit Maverick!

  11. TU Selwood to Crouch
    TD Selwood to Kelly and Franklin to Kreuzer (via Ryder)

    Three trades left before I make these moves. Currently have to play either Nank or Franklin on field and with their respective fixtures so close, I won’t be able to loophole. My main opponent has Kelly and will most likely VC him, though overall, my team is probably slightly better than his.

  12. Selwood and Grundy have to go.

    Already have Gawn, to afford Ryder have to bring in Rocky for Joel. Dim times.

    1. I would never do it, but you could go really left-field and pick up Zac Smith at $456K. Has gone 133 and 119 in his last two games.

      Anything to avoid bringing in Rocky at this stage!

  13. Selwood, Merrett, Grundy, Lynch, Witherden. Not going to be a good round. Two trades left and current rank 121. Getting Danger and Greene back helps a tad. Most likely swing Greenwood into mids for selwood and bring in Ryder. Nank into ruck and leave Grundy on bench for now. Leaves me with 1 trade and about 120k (plus about 1.8million on the bench ๐Ÿ™ oh well).

  14. I need advice.In 4 knockout and 1 prelim.1 trade left,$230,800.

    1. Popspies.

      I would move Adams to the Mids and Witherden back. Playing Shaz at D6.

      Bench Grundy and play Nank at R2.

      Then swap Greenwood and Bolton.

      Finally I would trade Selwood to any Mid you like. T. Mitchell is playing North this week and should do very well.

      Best of luck.

  15. 2 trades left and looks like they have to go this week ,with Selwood and now Lynch out…which combo looks the best replacement?

    TU: Gibbs + Steele
    TD: Billings + JJK

  16. Need to trade out Grundy and Selwood with my remaining two trades.

    TU: Heppell and Toby Greene
    TD: Neale and JJK.

    Comment for Neale and Billings.

    I get that Toby Greene is a suspension risk, but he is more reliable with the capacity to go big than any other forward (I also have Nank as cover). Billings can score big but don’t think he’ll get as much ball against Melbourne as I expect they can’t get it to him from the inside (Melbourne’s contested beast squad). I see JJK potentially going big against Carlton (maybe not with Liam Jones) but not against GWS or Adelaide, especially the way they are already being dominated in the middle and are rarely getting the ball inside 50. Heppell has averaged 117 over his last 3, and finishes seasons with big scores. Neale is the ideal target but what do you think?

  17. Ben.

    I’ve owned Neale since R1

    He is playing the Swans at the SCG. So don’t expect him to go huge again this week. Then he has RICH / ESS where he should go alright.

    Heppell has the Crows this week where he may struggle with Z.Merritt out.Then he has a very favourable draw with the Suns/ Freo.

    I’m also a Greene owner. I think he is one of the few Forwards that can go 120+
    Provided he doesn’t whack someone in the next 3 weeks.

    As much as I love L Neale .

    Heppell / Greene

    1. Cheers Freo Tragic, I will almost definitely go the Heppell-Greene combination and I think you’re correct in saying Sydney will disable some of Neale’s scoring. I just yearn for a midfield powerhouse given I’ve missed most of them this year. Picking Ollie Wines over Titch and Hanners over Neale at the start of the season, as well as picking up Pendles and Jelwood during the year has really hurt me.

      Lachie Neale is certainly a lock for me next season. I think Treloar and Wines have shown that we ought not look for improvement in high scorers with low disposal efficiency, look for good scorers with low disposal counts (i.e. Kelly and I think Heeney next year).

      Let’s hope and pray that Greene can sort out his head!

      1. Thanks Ben.

        I also only have 2 trades and I need to deal with Lynch out for the season.I’m thinking of benching Selwood as I have the the week off in most leagues.

        Next week I will probably go Selwood to Z Merrett.

        I think he will be fresh after the week off. His last 2 games are v Suns and Freo.

        I think Z.Merrett uses the ball extremely well and doesn’t need huge stats to score well. At $514.100 he is also great value.

        Best of luck for Finals.

      1. Thanks BSB.

        I got a lot of help from coaches on this site over the last few years.

        This is my 5th season and I’m having my best year yet. With my 2 best weekly scores in the last 3 weeks. Thanks mostly to the wealth of info provided on this site and a bit of luck.

        I’m happy to help anyone on SCT.

        It nice to give a little back.

  19. With all my outs this week I really need the bald master from GC to play,

    If he doesn’t come up I’m flying to Bris Vegas putting on his jumper and running onto the ground just to field a side ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. 2 trades left and last roll of the dice.
    Need to trade out J.Selwood and T.Lynch:

    TU: Sloane/Beams and Jjk

    TD: T.Mitchell and fwd rookie (Nank comes on field as F6)

  21. After some advice here SC Guru’s. Spent some quality time on this today at work and have narrowed it down. $$$ is not a barrier, considering the following as replacement for Selwood as their numbres of the last 3 and 5 weeks have been up there with the best of them. Mids currently: Danger, Titch, Oliver, Sloane, Neale, Fyfe, Dusty.

    TU: Matt Crouch
    TD: Mitch Duncan
    Comment: Zorko or Kelly

  22. Just got the win last week in an elimination by trading out Danger and JPK last week to Ryder and Oliver.

    Trading Darcy (or Witherden) & Jelwood out to ?? & ???
    Is it worth getting Danger back in with Selwood & Duncan out. Will Danger get more attention?

    TU: Get Danger back in! – Danger & rookie (Maynard)
    TD: Forget it. Strengthen other options- eg Murphy & Ryan(loop with Shaw)/Sloane & Rocky (M9)

    Comment:
    Jelwood/Witherden & $125K to 2 MID premos
    How long Witherden is out for??

  23. Biggest score for season 2526. Traded Danger for Docherty but didn’t help score. My mids and rucks all fired for once. Had Shaw, Witherdon and Greenwood in team too. Used Scooter to perfection for injured JPK. 4 trades left this week. 300 K in bank. Danger to come back in for either JPK if he doesn’t get up or for Scooter.

  24. TU: Bont & Mitch Wallis
    TD: Fyfe & Buddy Franklin

    comment for Kreuzer and Roberton

    โ€“ Unfortunately I traded Fyfe out back when he was injured and now want him back for the injured J Selwood

    I will have 4 dogs players this week if I go the Bont route, 5 next week if JJ is back, that might be an issue but virtually everyone has Dahl, macrae and the Bont.

  25. I can go Selwood to Coniglio and Witts to Kreuzer; although I do have ruck cover in the form of Nankervis.

    Although I have the $$$ to get anyone with a straight trade from Selwood; I was planning to get Coniglio because of his POD status, and forgo options like Neale, Mitchell or Martin.

  26. Am straight through to the prelims with 4 trades and 70k

    Wasn’t initially gonna trade this week but I may need to double upgrade with team problems next and will need cash eventually

    Got Selwood, gaz, lynch and witherden (don’t know when they will come back and it could cost me) out

    Thoughts ?

  27. 3 trades, $74k in the bank, have the week off because I made it to prelims.
    My first option is next week trade Grundy to Mumford, and Selwood to a decent midfielder and have 1 trade left if I make the grand final
    My second option is trade Witherden down to a cheap rookie and upgrade Grundy to someone like Kruezer this week and next week upgrade Selwood to someone like Titch with no trades left.
    What do I do??

    T/up – option 1

    T/down- option 2

  28. Lads should I be concerned about having big boy up against goldy in the ruck this week? Reasonable happy with my team after using my last trade upgrading roughy to parker..but is it worth considering upgrading a ruck to kruez or switch for ryder?

    2

  29. Neither ideal but I’m strapped for cash and average bench cover. Alternate is to go the docerty trade and let greenwood cover in the mids…

    TU – Witherden > Hurley & Selwood > Kelly
    TD – Witherden > Docerty & Selwood > Murphy
