      1. At least. Hoping 3-4.
        Need a couple of these one-game calves to prove themselves so I can put a couple of semi-fattened cows to pasture and build the required fund-pool.
        Should be easy from there hey?!? If the first four weeks are anything to go by, I think not. Fun times ahead for all

    1. Got to ask do you want hot head sicily come SC finals time, not worth bring him in to have to get him out another time

      7

      1. With your logic, you wouldn’t pick Toby Greene either?? Would you avoid Selwood because there is a concussion risk during SC finals. You must avoid Yeo as well because you can’t risk a 20 during SC finals.

        Don’t ponder on stuff you can’t control or can’t predict.

      2. There going to finals probably. He won’t want to miss out. Should have pulled his head in by then. Hopefully…

    1. One more week with Bonner
      Break even at 58 hold him for one more price rise as this is manageable then next week get rid of him

      7

      1. Agree, even if he doesn’t make BE this week, he is still likely to increase, albeit slowly over the next few. Comparatively under-priced.

  2. Haha now Venables is out for 12 weeks. Now that’s Langdon, Ryan and Venables (who I traded in for Langdon) traded out of my forward line. What is going on??

  3. Gave LDU one more week to prove himself, needless to say he’s gone this week for Mr. R Gray.

    TU: Don’t ask, just do it!
    TD: Give him another chance.

  4. Ok, so I have 28 trades left at the moment, with $256k. I’m 100% bringing in Coffield for Brayshaw, and the second trade will be out of these (with the Brayshaw trade, I now have roughly $300k). I’ll add a reply to this because there’s more than two option to pick from.

    TU: Hibberd to Sicily (leaves me with $356k in the bank)
    TD: Hibberd to Hurley/Simpson/Yeo/Savage ($250-$280k remaining)

  5. Haven’t used too many trades so far, thinking of moving Billings out and bringing in either Robbie Gray or Menegola, thoughts guys?

    T/U – Gray
    T/D – Menegola

  6. Hi guys. 28 trades left 200k in kitty and looking to move on goldy.
    T/U: goldy for Grundy.
    T/D: goldy for Nic Nat and Fischer for McLean. Comment . Keep goldy?
    Going for overall rank.

    1. im thinking the same, but Gray as i already have Mclean. Does hurt the old war chest though.

      Real worry I have is if nic nat will play every week and increase his TOG.

      However, if both those are a yes he could even push Grundy out of the top spot. Mans pulling a PPM of 1.4!

      TU: Nic Nat will get better and last
      TD: Too much risk and you will just end up trading nic nat later

  7. I just read on the AFL website injury update that ZGL could be back this week …

    Langdon is ahead of schedule and could be a surprise inclusion against St Kilda.

  8. Have enough cash to swap Trac for McLean or Gray this week, but won’t next week. Trac going OK but extra midfield time doesn’t look like making him a Top 6 fwd. Would be my first trade.

    TU: Trade Trac, he won’t be top 6-8
    TD: Hold and reassess at byes

  9. playing for head to head league
    thinking of trading brayshaw (freo) to coffield
    also not sure on j. kelly now that its week by week and they’re being conservative
    tu – just brayshaw to coffield
    td – kelly to oliver and brayshaw (freo) to coffield

    16

  10. Hey Guys, unsure what to do with Heath Shaw I thought he was back to his 110 average after a great start to the year however has now put out two 60’s do we need to be moving him on to a premo (e.g. Laird, Hurley, Yeo ext.).

    TU – Make the upgrade

    TD – Hold firm Heath is a proven performer who will be top 6-8

  11. In the Mix for RD5 apparently. Taken straight from the AFL site. Take with as big a pinch of salt as you like …

    ADELAIDE
    Get them in: Half-forward Riley Knight was a standout in the SANFL with 25 possessions and seven tackles. Midfielders Curtly Hampton (14 and 10 tackles) and Pat Wilson (20 and eight clearances) also impressed.
    Under the pump: Darcy Fogarty (nine disposals, no goals against Collingwood) could be squeezed out for team balance after the Crows played five tall forwards last week.
    Medical room: All Australian forward Eddie Betts is in doubt with a hamstring injury and midfielder David Mackaywill be assessed after his second concussion in three weeks. Small forward Lachlan Murphy (hamstring) was a late out last week. Club champion Matt Crouch (hamstring) is at least a week away.
    Verdict: Knight in for Betts, and Hampton in for Mackay if he’s ruled out. Hampton’s experience and outside run has him ahead of Wilson and Jordan Gallucci in the midfield ranks.

    BRISBANE
    Get them in: Another good game in the NEAFL for wingman Jacob Allison, who is surely bashing the door down. Dan McStay has responded well since being dropped, while Ryan Bastinac kicked three goals at the lower level and might be the type of ball-user the Lions are looking for.
    Under the pump: Defender Sam Mayes has had a tough start to the season and was again down on form against Richmond. Versatile tall Josh Walker is also struggling to have any impact.
    Medical room: Daniel Rich is still recovering from ankle ligament problems but doesn’t look like he’ll be right this week.
    Verdict: Chris Fagan has shown he’s happy to drop players for poor form, and after last week’s poor showing expect some changes this week. Allison looks a good swap for Mayes, while McStay, despite playing forward in the NEAFL, could come back to stiffen the defence against Gold Coast’s Tom Lynch-Sam Day forward line. Bastinac and Ben Keays could also come in.

    CARLTON
    Get them in: Harry McKay was impressive in tough conditions last Sunday and must be considered soon for senior selection. Andrew Phillips did well in the ruck and Sam Rowe was among the best.
    Under the pump: Plenty of candidates again, but Cameron O’Shea and Aaron Mullett spring readily to mind.
    Medical room: Quite a few battered and bruised bodies after last Saturday’s game. Skipper Marc Murphy has to be replaced, while Matthew Kreuzer and Matthew Kennedy look sore.
    Verdict: At least three changes are likely, depending on injuries. May go for bigger, more experienced bodies.

    COLLINGWOOD
    Get them in: Young midfielders Brayden Sier and Josh Daicos are in ripping VFL form and are probably at the front of queue if the Pies make any changes. Forward-turned wingman Chris Mayne and key defender Brody Mihocek are also tracking well.
    Under the pump: Collingwood is a far better proposition with Mason Cox in the team but it would be nice if he hit the scoreboard. He’s scoreless this season.
    Medical room: Despite the long break between games, Taylor Adams and Darcy Moore are at long odds to recover in time for the clash with the Essendon.
    Verdict: The Pies will likely name the same team that dismantled Adelaide.

    ESSENDON
    Get them in: The Bombers would have looked to bring in Patrick Ambrose for his first game of the season after a wrist injury, but he was suspended for a match in his VFL return. Midfielder Dylan Clarke (40 disposals) and half-back Jordan Ridley (27 disposals) were good in the VFL and will be pushing for a spot.
    Under the pump: Josh Begley has played every game so far this year and averaged 11 disposals, but was one of the quieter performers in the Bombers’ win over Port Adelaide.
    Medical room: Mitch Brown missed with a calf injury but, given the long break before Anzac Day, he could be right for next week, which means he could come in for Michael Hartley who was the late inclusion on Sunday.
    Verdict: John Worsfold backed in his men last week after a poor showing against the Bulldogs and it worked a treat with a much better performance against Port. It seems unlikely there’ll be many changes this round, but the Bombers will have to consider they have a four-day break from round five to six so may consider managing loads over that period.

    FREMANTLE
    Get them in: If veteran ruckman Aaron Sandilands needs a rest then Lloyd Meek seems in line for a debut, while uncapped rookie defender Taylin Duman has been in strong form at Peel.
    Under the pump: Tommy Sheridan hasn’t done a whole lot wrong in two games but could make way if a few runners push to return.
    Medical room: Doig medallist Bradley Hill has missed two games now with his sore knee but might be ready to return against the Bulldogs. Ed Langdon could also be back after illness.
    Verdict: Selection will come down to fitness and freshness, but Hill should be ready to return and the Dockers will hope Sandilands is ready to go against Dogs rookie ruck Tim English.

    GEELONG
    Get them in: Second-year swingman Timm House could be Geelong’s answer for a key defender after 28 possessions in the VFL. Zac Smith, who hasn’t featured since round one, worked into the game, while Jackson Thurlow had 11 touches in the final term. Stewart Crameri has now played four VFL matches while carryover emergency James Parsons will be fresh after he was dropped.
    Under the pump: Defender Zach Guthrie didn’t have a great deal to do with St Kilda’s lacklustre attacking effort but managed six disposals, Esava Ratugolea (six touches) might be due for a rest on a six-day break and Jordan Murdoch (17 disposals) is yet to lock in his spot.
    Medical room: Small forward Cory Gregson’s foot injury will see him miss.
    Verdict: Parsons for Gregson is a like for like, while Thurlow will be considered for Guthrie if the Cats want more run, or House if they’re after more height.

    GOLD COAST
    Get them in: After 36 disposals in the NEAFL opener, Michael Barlow topped it with 46 at the weekend. The midfield veteran has his shortcomings, but those numbers are hard to ignore.
    Under the pump: It would be hard to leave him out for a QClash, but Michael Rischitelli was well below his best against West Coast.
    Medical room: The Suns will eagerly await the results of Ben Ainsworth’s concussion testing during the week after the young forward was knocked out against the Eagles. The calf injury for Peter Wright is now almost out to two months with no sign of a return.
    Verdict: Coach Stuart Dew has shown some loyalty in the first month but will make changes to play the Lions. Ainsworth’s health is critical, but Rischitelli’s spot could be in jeopardy regardless, paving the way for Barlow and others to come in.

    GWS
    Get them in: Young defender Isaac Cumming had 30 possessions in the NEAFL last week and has hit some form after a pre-season calf issue. The potential debutant could play in the backline to release Lachie Whitfield, who is struggling with some added attention in defence, back onto the wing.
    Under the pump: Ruckman Dawson Simpson was solid against Fremantle veteran Aaron Sandilands last week but if Rory Lobb proves his fitness, he’ll be forced to make way. Harry Himmelberg could be another looked at.
    Medical room: Lobb (knee) and star midfielder Josh Kelly (groin) could return to face St Kilda but they’ll need to train well on Wednesday to prove their fitness.
    Verdict: The ladder leaders aren’t likely to make any unforced changes, so they’re expected to keep their winning 22 unless Kelly and Lobb come back in.

    HAWTHORN
    Get them in: Midfielder James Cousins continues to slay them at VFL level and must be on the verge of a senior recall with another 30 touches for Box Hill, while Ryan Burton took his omission from the side in the right fashion, with 22 touches and two goals in difficult conditions.
    Under the pump: Can’t imagine any form-related omissions from the side after such an impressive performance against Melbourne on Sunday.
    Medical room: Cyril Rioli (knee) and Paul Puopolo (hamstring) won’t play for several weeks, so Hawthorn’s forward mix will have a different shape and look starting Sunday against North Melbourne.
    Verdict: Burton and Cousins for Rioli and Puopolo, although Will Langford – save for his goalkicking – played that defensive forward role really well last year in that pair’s absence. He is a chance for a recall.

    MELBOURNE
    Get them in: After a nightmare loss to Hawthorn there will be changes and, possibly, plenty of them. Dom Tyson is likely to return after illness, while Jayden Hunt is a strong chance to be recalled after a best afield performance for Casey. Sam Weideman and Cameron Pedersen will also be considered as Melbourne looks to tweak its forward structure. Mitch Hannan and Billy Stretch are others who will come into the mix.
    Under the pump: Where do you start? Josh Wagner, Tomas Bugg, James Harmes, Jake Melksham and Sam Frost are all in the gun.
    Medical room: Star Demons Jack Viney and Tom McDonald are getting closer to a return, but still 2-3 weeks away.
    Verdict: Tyson for Harmes, Weideman for Bugg, Hunt for Wagner or Frost, and Hannan for Melksham. Time for coach Simon Goodwin to make a statement.

    NORTH MELBOURNE
    Get them in: All eyes are on forgotten defender Sam Wright and untried former Giant Paul Ahern, who turned in sharp VFL performances with 25 and 29 disposals, respectively. Young forward Cameron Zurhaar is also in contention.
    Under the pump: Will North continue to play four defenders – Robbie Tarrant, Scott Thompson, Ed Vickers-Willis and Majak Daw – who are 190cm or taller? If not, Daw seems the most vulnerable. Kayne Turner put in an improved effort in round four.
    Medical room:Taylor Garner (groin) is a chance to play his first competitive game this season in the VFL this weekend, and shouldn’t take long to regain his senior spot. Oscar Junker (concussion) returned in the state league last week.
    Verdict: Wright should be an inclusion this week for his first AFL match since round 11, 2016, after consecutive strong games for North’s VFL side.

    PORT ADELAIDE
    Get them in: Midfield bull Sam Powell-Pepper is set to return from a club-imposed one-game suspension. Defender Jasper Pittard had 28 possessions in the SANFL in his first game back from a hamstring injury.
    Under the pump: Tom Rockliff’s slow start to life at the Power continued, averaging 12 possessions through four games. One of Riley Bonner, Dan Houston or Trent McKenzie might have to make room for Pittard.
    Medical room: Rockliff had calf tightness in the loss to Essendon. The six-day break after playing at Etihad, coupled with his poor form, might be reason to give him a rest. Forward Todd Marshall needs to pass concussion tests this week.
    Verdict: The Power are 3-1 so won’t be making mass changes. Likely to be first in, first out. Powell-Pepper for Karl Amon, and Pittard for McKenzie.

    RICHMOND
    Get them in: No one back is from injury as the VFL had a bye. Nathan Broad is available, Jack Higgins and Sam Lloyd were unlucky to be dropped, and Anthony Miles and Corey Ellis were good in round one of the VFL.
    Under the pump: Tough to single out poor performances from a 93-point win and Damien Hardwick made a point last week of keeping players in the team who were deserving of their spot.
    Medical room: Daniel Rioli is the only player on the injury list with the Tigers hopeful of his return via the VFL in the next few weeks. Jack Graham is challenging his one-game striking ban at Tuesday night’s tribunal.
    Verdict: Lloyd, Higgins, or Miles are obvious options to replace Graham if he’s out. They’d have to shuffle if Broadcame in, or they could surprise with Ivan Soldo or even Callum Moore to stretch an under-siege backline.

    SAINT KILDA
    Get them in: Tough nut David Armitage picked up 34 disposals and 22 contested possessions for Sandringham and Billy Longer had 53 hit-outs against Geelong’s Zac Smith. Josh Battle kicked a solitary goal while Bailey Riceimpressed in defence.
    Under the pump: Small forward Jack Lonie was quiet while Sam Gilbert would have expected to play better.
    Medical room: A heart concern has ruled Dylan Roberton out while Tim Membrey (right knee) and Jimmy Webster (hip) need to prove their fitness. Rowan Marshall (concussion) is in a similar situation.
    Verdict: Rice to make his debut in place of Roberton and Armitage to return for Lonie.

    SYDNEY
    Get them in: The Swans could have Gary Rohan back for Friday night’s clash with Adelaide, but the club will likely leave the decision up to him after his personal tragedy last week.
    Under the pump: Young forward Will Hayward had a quiet night against the Bulldogs last week so could be in trouble if Rohan is available.
    Medical room: Superstar forward Lance Franklin trained on Monday and is right to play, despite sending a scare through the Swans camp when he looked to injure a shoulder last week.
    Verdict: The Swans will place no pressure on Rohan, but the good news is that he’s back at the club and both he and his wife Amie are receiving plenty of support. If he’s in a good headspace he’s likely to face the Crows and come in for Hayward.

    WEST COAST
    Get them in: With Daniel Venables set for a stint on the sidelines, it could open the door for Brayden Ainsworth to debut, although he has not played since March 30 due to East Perth’s bye and being held over as emergency.
    Under the pump: Young defender Jackson Nelson has had some shaky moments to start the season and could make way for Tom Cole.
    Medical room: There is a watch on Brad Sheppard after two corked quads in successive weeks, while Luke Shueyfailed to train on Monday with an ankle issue and Jack Redden has a sore shin.
    Verdict: Ainsworth or Mark Hutchings appear in best position to replace Venables, but there won’t be many unforced changes.

    WESTERN BULLDOGS
    Get them in: Versatile defender Zaine Cordy will return from a one-game ban for the clash against Fremantle, while important big man Jackson Trengove should also be on the plane to Perth if he passes a fitness test on a shoulder injury. Some glaring skill errors cost the Dogs the game against Sydney on the weekend, so expect coach Luke Beveridge to consider injecting some class into his side by replacing the suspended Lachie Hunter with either Patrick Lipinski or Lukas Webb. Key forward Tom Boyd returned to form with a five-goal haul in the VFL, but the premiership star will more than likely have to repeat that effort to earn a call up. Ruckman Jordan Roughead had an encouraging return from concussion, but could remain with Footscray due to Tim English’s excellent form. Second-year key defender Lewis Young has been in excellent form for the ‘Scray, but an expected undersized Docker attack should see him bide his time at state league level.
    Under the pump: Hardworking midfielders Mitch Honeychurch and Lin Jong were serviceable against the Swans, but they need to improve their foot skills and offensive output if they’re to keep Lipinski and Webb out of the side. In and out of the team over the past 12 months, defensive playmaker Shane Biggs hasn’t been able to recapture the form that made him so important in the 2016 premiership triumph.
    Medical room: Close to playing last week, Trengove just needs to pass a fitness test to face the Dockers.
    Verdict: Cordy and Trengove will return, while Hunter (suspended) and Biggs (omitted) will be the outs.

    1. Thoughts on L. Keeffe getting a game for GWS?
      Got him sitting dead in my fwd line and considering a sideways trade to Z. G-L (GWS) for cash generation.

      Trade worth it?

    tu – was thinking of doing brayshaw (freo) to coffield this week and cole (wce) not playing to mirra next week
    td – now im thinking of cole to mirra next week and would have enough for brayshaw to zerret in 2 weeks

    keep in mind this was my upgrade bonner fund but sounds like i can keep him till they byes so will have a rookie to downgrade by than and want to use the cash in bank

  14. Josh Kelly to Titch?
    Kelly is in doubt this week and is week-to-week according to Wayne Campbell. He’s suffering from groin soreness and that’s an injury without a clear timeline. I’ve already used 5 trades, 3 trades due to injuries and 2 due to corrections.
    I was also planning on trading Brayshaw to Coffield this week and also need to trade Venables in the next couple of weeks and possibly Dom Barry sometime soon (hopefully not). Being badly hurt by injury at this stage but ranked 5,000 and still haven’t given up hope. So if Kelly isn’t named

    TU: Trade to Titch
    TD: Hold

    TU: Josh Kelly to Titch
    TD: Hold and hope he comes back

  16. Out: Billings and Brayshaw
    In: McLean and Coffield
    And then maybe Mirra or Guelfi next week.

    TU: go for it
    TD: think again

  17. I started with Danger, and I am bringing in another premo mid. This question has probably been asked so sorry if repeating, who is the must have right now?

    T/U Dusty
    T/D Titch

    Thanks coaches

    25
  18. I have Kruezer, Billings and Hibberd. Who should I trade out.

    TU Hibberd for Hurley
    TD: Billings for Maclean

    Comment: Kreuzer to Grundy

    5

    13
    1. If im getting rid of hibberd who to bring in
      T/u hurley
      T/d yeo

      I was tossing up between hurley and hibberd till the last minute before rd 1 but yeo is $30k cheaper and plays in rd 13/14 when I need more players available

      18

      9
      1. I haven’t heard much about him mate, but I’ve heard the Kent is playing pretty well! 😉
        In all seriousness though, he is one of those players who didn’t even cross my mind for a millisecond preseason. Maybe I should have taken a closer look. The first question I always ask myself when trading in a player is ‘Will he be in the top 10 in his position from here on in? I wouldn’t assume that he will be, but as I said, don’t know much about him.

  19. I’ve put a lot of thought into this weeks trades. I have 120k spare and 28 trades. Options are-

    1: No trades, save them
    2: Straight swap Sauce for Grundy (Probably the last week this can happen given the break evens)
    3: Hibberd to Hurley (Bloody Hibberd, I know he will come good as soon as I cull him)
    4: Brayshaw to Coffield ( seems like there may be options on the bubble next week)
    5: A mixture of 4 and 2 or 4 and 3
    6: Hibberd to Coffield and Brayshaw to Coniglio

    I’d like any and all suggestions before lockout

    3

    1
    1. Big Sticks.

      I think its one of these two.

      Option 1:

      Brayshaw to Coffield only frees up $46K.
      Wait a week for Mirra he is only.$102K

      Option 6:

      Hibberd may improve with Lewis now injured. Maybe not Grrrrr.
      Coniglio is looking like a “Must Have”
      Maybe a season defining decision.

      Best of luck whatever you do.

  20. Hiyo coaches!!

    Is it too big of a risk to trade in Guelfi a week early? Looked OK for a mature-aged recruit. If I trade him in I can afford cogs in the mids by trading out UDL.
    Any input would be excellent 🙂

    TU – Do it
    TD – Never trade a rook in that has not played 2 and named for 3rd

    Cheers coaches

  21. T/U Goldstein and Brayshaw to English and Greene

    T/D English as R2 is too risky

    Thinking is Greene will outscore Goldstein and English will outscore Brayshaw

    3

    17
    1. G’day Champ. Think you have missed the boat on English mate. I definitely think he is too much of a risk at R2. The only rucks I’d contemplate bringing in at this stage are Grundy or maybe NicNat (assuming you already have Gawn).

  22. Going to trade Josh Kelly due to concerns around potentially having to manage his injury throughout the season. Should I:

    TU – Trade this week. Trade in candidates are Dusty or Oliver

    TD – Keep Kelly on the bench and trade in a week or two when Danger bottoms out

    23

    7
  23. Is Coniglio now a “Must Have”.

    He is averaging 122.3.
    BE 71.
    And still only $529.200
    With Kelly not right I can’t see him slowing down.

    I’m thinking of an early upgrade.

    Bonner (BE 58) to Coffield*. (BE -45)

    Barry to Coniglio.

    Mids would then be..

    Dusty. Titch. Fyfe. Cripps. Parker. Coniglio+ 2 of.
    (Kelly.Holman.Banfield.Brayshaw.Garlett)

    T/U. Genius.

    T/D. Save those trades.

  24. First year playing the AFL version of Supercoach so would love some thoughts from some more experienced minds.
    Have quite a bit of cash in the bank and thought of quite a good 2-3 week plan.
    – Save trades this week
    – Bonner – Mirra and Brayshaw/Barry – Guelfi, next week
    – Brayshaw/Barry/Holman – Danger, the week after
    Obviously things will come and change these plans but does this sound quite good to you guys? Just gauging opinions this week as another option would be Brayshaw – Coffield

    1. G’day JCole, welcome to the SC community mate. Great to have you on board.
      I think that seems like a solid plan.
      One thing I have learnt over many years of playing supercoach, is to also have a Plan B, C, D and sometimes E up your sleeve! Unfortunately, you can’t plan for injuries, suspensions etc. and the best laid plans often don’t come to fruition. It is very important though to keep on planning and looking ahead like you are doing. I like your idea of saving trades this week, as there looks to be some very tempting bubble boys next week (edit: that sounded a bit wrong!) and Bonner has a bit more cash to make. Danger should be well down in price in a couple of weeks and looks like a decent trade-in target. Good luck with all the trades mate.

      1. Cheers Daniel. Yea like I said I know it most likely go the way I wanted just wanted to see if those who know more than me thought it was a solid plan.

  25. Tu: Kelly to Oliver and Brayshaw to Coffield
    TD: Kelly to Titch and Brayshaw to ZGL

    Can’t have it both ways because I want to turn Bonner into Howe or Yeo in the next two weeks

  26. TU: Trade brayshaw (Freo), sub finlayson into midfield position, then get coffield as emergency defender, Murray into defence off bench, finlayson in mid over holman.

    TD: No

    1. Considering the same but waiting til next week at this stage and hoping Mirra keeps up the form from his debut

    1. IMO Barry will be in and out of the side all year. He isn’t a great loophole option during the next month, but still has some cash to make. It’s a tough one. I like the look of both Mirra/Guelfi, but would definitely wait until next week as you said and then reassess.

  27. Just heard the news that J.Kelly is going to be ‘a week by week proposition’. That makes me nervous! 600k is a lot of cash to have on the pine. 27 trades sitting at 391 overall.
    T/U: Trade Kelly to another premium
    T/U: Hold and hope he is back in a week or 2

  28. Decided to trade Kelly after it’s going to be another 2 weeks and given the nature of the injury, the capacity for him to reinjure himself. After Venables gets traded soon to Guelfi or someone else I will have used 7 trades (5 on injuries and 2 on corrections) without any upgrades. This sucks given my team isn’t actually that bad and I’m scared I won’t even get to full premo. Given this should I go?

    TU: Brayshaw to Coffield
    TD: Hold this trade

    Should have enough money to go Bonner to Howe after the Venables trade for my first upgrade, hopefully my bad luck ends here.

    1. Thanks for the advice people, I now realise that with my heavy use of trades it better to wait and see if Brayshaw can hit form in the coming weeks knowing that a decent cheaper rookie on the bubble will come. 🙂

  29. I have Danger, Dusty, Titch, Kelly, Fyfe, Cogs with the essential cows in the MID
    27 trades left
    Trade 1 – Brayshaw to Coffield
    Trade 2 – I think I have made my decision after looking at BEs but after some confirmation from the community.
    J Kelly to:
    TU: Premo (eg Oliver with $250K bank,)
    TD: Heeney (with $305K) to move into FWD later on
    Comment: Hold J Kelly or other thoughts??
    Cheers

  30. What are the thoughts on joel Selwood? Will be 535k next week, and from rounds 6-10 Geelong only play at Kardinia and MCG (averages 123 and 116 at the two venues for his career)

    T/U: Banfield to Selwood

    T/D: Bad trade

  31. thoughts are appreciated on this coaches

    tu – cole (wce) non playing def rookie to mirra next week and would have enough for brayshaw to zerret in 2-3 weeks
    td – bad trade…

    comment thoughts….maybe if i need to re-think and get rid of brayshaw (freo) this week

    1. are the thumbs down because people dont like zerret as a premo option this year…
      tu – yes, zerret not a good option
      td – no, other reason. zerret is a good option

  33. Appreciate some input on this trade plan folks…Currently have 28 trades in hand and $214k in the bank. Keen to get Coniglio before he gets any dearer and with enough other DEF rookies firing feel I can live without Bonner from here on…So thinking of going:

    Bonner > Coffield + Brayshaw > Coniglio

    TU: Good moves
    TD: Save those trades

    Cheers!

    1. Good trades as Bonner’s scoring is shrinking each week and he needs solid 80’s to get his price ticking over again. Port have a tough 4 weeks and he will have to perform to hold his spot. Coffield will make at least $100,000 averaging around 65 over the next three rounds.

      Brayshaw to Coniglio will get you points and hopefully a keeper. Brayshaw has stalled and may need a rest and is a risk of losing money should he score in the 40’s again.

  34. I’m thinking of getting out a rookie that isn’t performing in Brayshaw. And then cutting my losses with Billings. And in come would be Coffield and Gray/McLean.

    TU: get both.
    TD: just dump Brayshaw for now, and trust that Billings will come good

  35. Started without Laird (regretfully) and can bring him through dpp this week as follows:

    Billings to Laird
    Brayshaw to Guelfi/Mirra

    Worried about the fact the only rookies I can afford on this have only played one game, but Billings’ drop and Laird rise this week will most likely mean I don’t have the cash to pull it off next week. Worth the trade or too big a risk with those rooks?

    TU- Do it
    TD- Bring Laird in another way later

  37. Still with 29 trades

    LDU -> Coffield
    Billings -> McLean

    Which leaves Brayshaw and Hibberd to survive another week to await next weeks bubble boys.

    Seems a no brainer

    Thoughts?

  38. Got 3 potential trades in mind, can only make two, 28 trades left.

    Players in question – Billings, J Kelly, Hibberd.

    Thinking I might let Hibberd ride another week, he’s still averaging ~80 and I can only really stand to gain another 20 points avg with a trade.

    TU – Billings –> Gray | Kelly –> Cogs
    TD – Billings –> McLean | Kelly –> Cogs
    Bonus – Billings –> Gray | Kelly –> McLean

      1. It’s St Kilda’s structure that’s letting him down. So many times he got the pill from clearances last week (which the Saints dominated), and he had the composure to seek out options, there just weren’t any!!!!!

        1

        0
      2. I’ll have a good amount of coin handy with the Kelly –> Cogs move, so should I look to switch out Hibberd or just bank the cash and save the trade on Hibberd and Billings in your opinion?

    1. The jury is out IMHO. I’d pick up someone more certain (e.g. Heeney) and grab a Hogan late in the year if he’s been consistent.

        1. Ike, Saints,

          Thanks for the comments.

          Already have Heeney, McLean, Smith and Billings (I’m taking my medicine with Billings and hoping he/Saints come good). Plus trying not to make any corrective trades until after the Byes, and therefore only wanting to bring in indisputable Top-10 players at the position for rookie/mid-price upgrades.

          Was stuck on deciding between Hogan, Gray and Buddy.

          The Round 10 Bye for Gray is a concern; so I was planning on bringing him in from around 11/12. Buddy puts another Round 14 Bye player in my side, plus news of the shoulder this week was a pause; so was hoping to wait until after the Byes to bring him in. Was thinking Hogan presents value in comparison to the others. Now I’m stuck.

          Maybe a better poll is

          T/u Gray
          T/d Buddy

    2. I’m really tossing this up myself I was thinking Brayshaw and Doedee out in Giles Langdon (if named) (I fall 8k short of Coffield) and Hogan.

      I think Hogan will be good while Viney is out with the extra Mid minutes that he is gaining valuable points. It’s a risky trade and this year I wanted to emphasises doing risky things because last year I went the whole year playing it safe.

  39. Hey guys my trade this week ot what i am thinking

    Josh Kelly–> Jack Macrae

    And then do i trade out bonner or Brayshaw (who is going to go better this week)

    I am thinking of holding billings one more week because i have other more urgent trades

    9

    1. I’d hold both Bonner and Brayshaw this week. Both have more future upside, even if they don’t hit their respective BEs this week. IMHO they are both too good compared to what is available right now. there are plenty more likely thoroughbred cows soon to join the herd

    1. i think the reason that you’re getting TDs is that you’d be paying premo dollar for Danger. Wait a couple of weeks and he should be at least another $50k cheaper.

      Hurley for me is attractive with Hooker reverting to the backline, which should free him up a little more (as last week). But there is risk given that Woosha won’t commit to this being a long-term set-up. Furthermore, I feel Hibberd has dropped so much ($-wise) now that he is worth holding onto, at least while Lewis is injured and see if that has a positive SC effect. Lewis has been the predominant kick-in, so there may be some upside to enjoy.

      1. I’m in a similar situation Jas.
        Ideally it would be best to wait to pick up Danger in the next couple of weeks, because he is basically guaranteed to go down in price. The trouble is that I don’t want to keep Kelly for another week (too many points/cash sitting on the pine).
        For this reason, I’m bringing in Oliver at this stage. Would rather Danger, but can’t justify losing so much money on him the week after I trade him in.

  40. Fellow SC’ers,

    Losing faith in my Goldy selection & have Josh Kelly to deal with.

    TU – Kelly to Dusty (ignore the Goldy issue) & move LDU on for Coffield.

    TD – Goldy to Grundy and Kelly to Oliver (3K short of Dusty).

    Or have faith in the Goldy?

    Thanks!

  41. I think I’m going to do something stupid!

    Taranto and Mirra in
    Brayshaw and Holman out

    With Kelly out, I think Taranto will get mid time and points v Saints and the Lions. The only way I can afford him is Mirra, early.
    It’s either this, or trade Billings. I’m trying real hard to resist that.

    1. Chillo you’re 1 of the more intelligent individuals on here your AFL SC knowledge is very good but seriously I cant have bringing in a rookie who’s only played 1 game all for a Taranto type.. sorry mate, that move is a big thumbs down from me..

    2. If it came off, you’d look like a bloody genius but for me there’s just too many ways for that to blow up in your face and end up costing you 2-3 trades to fix.

    3. Keep Billings Chillo. He will come good (albeit be inconsistent). No point making a loss on him now. At worst he becomes a bench loophole.

      If you have an itchy trade finger, just go Brayshaw to Coffield, and leave it at that 🙂

  42. Love the feedback on this site. Have used 4 trades already, but was looking at trading out Bonner for mirra, and then upgrading davies-uniackie to Zach merrett. Not sure whether to pull the trigger now or wait one more week. Any help appreciated.

    1. i’d wait for now, even though UDL is likely to drop in value this week. but Merrett is likely to drop considerably more so it’s all relative.
      you might want to have another look at the one-gamers this week and teamsheets the following week before getting on the Mirra-bus. unless of course you want one of my “been there, done that” t-shirts. i’ve got plenty 😉
      good luck.

  43. Hey guys, your thoughts appreciated,

    only 2 trades to date and I am thinking of trading Hibberd to Coffield and Brayshaw to Robbie Gray via Garlett DPP. Could also grab Macrae instead of Gray but the extra $90k will get me Zerrett next week which cannot happen if I get Macrae (still tempting though to have T Kelly as M8 !!)

    This will be my team once done –
    Laird, Savage, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, Coffield (Naughton, Keeffe)
    Titch, Dusty, Oliver, Fyfe, Coniglio, Cripps, T Kelly, Holman (Banfield, Garlett, Barry)
    Kreuzer, Gawn (Orlango)
    Heeney, R Gray, D Smith, Sicily, Billings, Fritsch (Henry, Giles-Langdon)

    Reliant on rookies down back but they are far far better currently than the ones in the forward line I think. Earlier in the week everyone wanted to trade Hibberd over Billings but since Lewis is out it is now the other way ?? I get all the points made but there are no guarantees. The good rookie defenders are outscoring Hibberd so far and I would still back Billings to outscore the current crop of forward rookies from here on. Thus Hibberd to Coffield seems like similar points but Brayshaw to Gray is +70 per week give or take.

    T/U – Coffield and R Gray in
    T/D – forget it

    comment Macrae ?? Thanks guys

  49. People are saying that we should be trading out Josh Kelly instead of waiting on him.
    I made a post earlier in this thread about my trade possibilities for my second trade, but now those choices may be thrown out.

    First trade is still the same (Brayshaw to Coffield). By that stage I have a touch over $300k left. Which of these trades should I make for my second trade?

    TU – J. Kelly (to either Macrae or Dangerfield, probably Macrae because Danger’s price will drop significantly next week with a 200 breakeven)

    TD – M. Hibberd (to Yeo or Hurley)

  56. This feels like a good week to not trade. Got a lot of premium mids with highish B/E’s (Oliver, Martin, Macrae, Danger, Mitchell etc ) – somebody is bound to drop in price, got some good rookies on the bubble next week to help afford those trades. Most rookies have also not yet hit their maximum price.
