TU- Callaghan > Laird
TD- Van Rooyen > Parker
Comment: Use 2 Trades (6 left then)
Van Rooyen + Fyfe > Laird+Maric
Do the Double Trade (JVR+Fyfe>Laird+Maric)
At this early stage my trades will be
Out – Steele/Ashcroft, Ratagulea, Ford
In – Mitchell, Keays Yeo.
Yep I am rolling the dice
Depends on how long it takes me to calm down to decide whether Steele gets traded or not.
I should have 19 or 20 for next week depending on Sicily’s appeal goes. Fingers crossed his appeal is successful.
Does not the AFL realise that every single tackle has the potential to cause serious injury.
Soon our great game will be nothing more than men’s netball.
Does not the AFL realise every tackle can cause SC chaos !!!
What to do with Briggs?
Currently own him at R3 with English & Marshall as the other 2 rucks. Can go Briggs to Oliver in one trade this week however finding it difficult to trade him considering he still has a heap of cash to generate, feel like there is much better value chopping English or Marshall considering Briggs is matching them at the moment..
Three trades this week.
Hopefully bringing in Oliver and Cameron for Briggs, Ashcroft and a TBD downgrade
I know! How dirty does it feel, Mick!?
He’s ripping 130s, making a boatload of cash and is honestly a sensational player – feels so weird and counterproductive to trade him.
But, yeah, RoMo and Tingles have to stay. Tingles is just R1 and RoMo is widely owned and post-bye. If RoMo and Briggs had their byes switched it’d be an easy call.
Given Bont smashed his BE I’ll be combining Briggs and Humph (instead of Cincotta) into him by the looks of it. Think, yeah, just use his cash to finish an FP side – as dirty as it feels to cull someone with his scoring and form. Not much else that can be done.
What about if you have Witts (he was my Darcy replacement to help with bye cover). Should we still be trading out briggs in this instance?
Keeping briggs means im playing 1 short next round
Hey Mick, I’m pretty high on Briggs and his level atm…. imo if his points are going to continue like this(and it looks as if it will) then I would turn Marshall into some points needed elsewhere and cash! Good luck 🙂
Cincotta > Cheap defender rookie on the bubble who’s playing
Ford > Forward premo who’s playing
Now prices updated
Ashcroft > Cameron
Briggs > Maric
Wardlaw > Clarry
6 trades left and 15 k in the bank.
Doesn’t feel great cashing out on players with $$$ to make but it’s probably better for my side
Better trade to make this week?
Tu; Briggs > Oliver
Td; Ford > D.Cameron
Surprised to see people trading Briggs, but I guess it depends on aims for the season and overall/league position.
Personally I’m playing for league only and sitting top so can cop a loss this week.
Then riding Briggs til he tops out and straight swapping for a premo on my most needed line. Good luck all.
And probably looking at a loss this week, given my quality/non-existent bye planning has all 8 playing in my backing (teams reliant obviously) and 1 in my fwds. (Pre trades)
Getting him to Oliver it’s a no brainer, no point him staying in R3 while I play a rookie on field.
Considering my third trade this week.
TU – Briggs to Clarry
TD – Wardlaw to Brayshaw
TU Neither (102k rookie like Maric)
Ok my original trade thoughts before lockout ended was Cincotta and Ford > defender rookie and a forward premo.
* Indicated upcoming bye
DEF – Stewart, Daicos, Dawson, Lloyd, Ryan, Weddle (Cincotta*, Constable)
MID – Petracca, Laird, Merrett, Serong, Walsh*, Wardlaw*, Johnson, Sheldrick (Macrae*, Green*, Drury*)
RUC – English*, Marshall (Madden)
FWD – Dunkley, Coniglio*, Sheezel*, Mitchell, Ford*, Buller (Taranto*, Roberts)
$352,700k/8 trades remaining
I have no clue what to do here, I honestly don’t. I’m already stuck with 6 players on field who won’t be playing, plus Johnson and Buller highly likely will be dropped.
I was gonna upgrade Ford, but almost every decent forward premo in the comp is out with the bye. The best available is Gulden, and I don’t really wanna touch that rollercoaster of a trash heap. And I don’t know if I should downgrade Cincotta when I’ve already got 6 defenders playing this round.
So I;m seriously asking for some advice on what to do here, and I REALLY NEED the advice. Because when this happens, my brain goes into overload for the entire week and my brain fries up. The last three weeks I’ve asked for help, and I’ve been left with barely anything and I end up making trades where at least one have turned very mediocre and useless.
I’m not wanting a solution on how to get 18 playing on field, because we all that’s not gonna happen.
I just want something that’s logical enough and none of that side trading premo/near-premo to another one. At this point for the rest of the year, I’m wanting to use 4 of the 8 trades to downgrade and the other 4 trades to upgrade, so I can have a “full-premo” side whenever it is I use the last trade.
So what is the best trade options for me at this point?
And please, again, I would like something decent. I know my calls for help are at times hard to figure out how to help, I understand that. Some people have been a very broken record with letting know that, trust me, I bloody get it no need to repeat how difficult I can be. But I’m just asking for help, there’s nothing wrong with someone asking for help, that’s what this thread is for.
Hey WW , maybe something like Ford to Jackson or Dcam. I always like to have ruck forwards from here on.
I was going to post a query to the crew about Dev Robertson and how we view his js. If he keeps his job and form then he’s looking good to me.
Cameron may be a good option. I would’ve highly considered Jackson, but with the high likelihood of Darcy coming back in the week, I think that’s going to effect his numbers too much
Hey WW , I’m pretty sure that the Barbarian had lifted his scoring to tons and near tons with Darcy in the team – it was a big part of why I traded Darcy as his scoring was taking a big hit 🙂
G’day WW, I reckon the Ford to DCam is the value trade, particularly given the ruck protection beyond the byes.
Ford & Cincotta out
Sheezel to DEF
Macrae to FWD
Oliver and Maric in.
$100k still in the bank.
17 on field round 15
Take a deep breath. It’s only a free fun reality game.
I know, but it’s also been months of trying to work out strategies and researching players, to what my dumbass brain can muster
TU: Johnson> Oliver
TD: Cincotta> yeo
I know the first option seems obvious, but the Oliver trades leave me with 4 trades left and still one upgrade to go, also pushing keays to the bench/loophole with steele.
Yeo trade leaves me 240k itb and keays at m8, and more flexibile to bring in somebody like mills in a couple weeks and possibly himmelberg to loop with yeo as well.
7 trades left and 440k itb
out cincotta, Atkins, Ford for Maric, Day, DCam. Leaves 245k itb
R16 Humphrey to clarry leaves 3 trades and full side
TU or TD
Who to trade out for D. Cameron? T. English is my R1. 10 trades left and focused and league wins.
TU: M. Gawn
TD: D. Cameron
That was meant to be, who to trade out for D. Cameron?
TU: M. Gawn
TD: K. Briggs
If Sicily gets off or 1 week
Cincotta, Briggs, Ford > Rookie Defender playing (Mullin / Uwland) D Cam, Laird
If sicily gets 2
Sicily, Briggs, Ford > Keays, D Cam, Oliver
Either option leaves me with 3 trades but close to FP side(weakest links are Sheeze and Day) and Humphrey and Fyfe as M9 / F7 cover
I’ve got Ford, Cincotta and Briggs, hoping to turn them into a rookie and 2 premos with my 183 cash ITB and field 18 players this week. Any suggestions on targets? Cheers
He’s nearly looking like a keeper
He’s a good F6/D6 player. I wouldn’t trade him for the rest of the year
TU-jvr to maric and ohalloran to serong
TD-ashcroft to serong and cincotta to maric
comment both but someone instead of serong
first option leaves me with only ashcroft and humphrey left to full primo
second option leaves me with wardlaw and humphrey to full primo
i also have tarryn thomas at f6 cos i’ve my low number of trades so not counting him as a rookie or someone to upgrade.
thinking of going for a cheap d6/f6 considering money is short for finishing team.
TU: Kai Lohmann
TD: Harvey Harrison
Out: Cincotta & Wardlaw
In: Mullin & D. Cameron
11 trades left with $21k itb
Letting JVR, Wilmot, Mitchell fatten up one more week before I upgrade again next week. Will leave me with only 1 rookie onfield with 9 trades left.
Priority Trade Out
Would appreciate some wisdom.
Stewart, Daicos, Dawson, Ridley, Sheezel, Melican (Cincotta, Cowan)
Bont, Laird, Butters, Serong, Green, Walsh, T. Thomas, Atkins (Davey, Sharp, Constable)
English, Marshall (McAndrew)
Dunkley, Taranto, Macrae, Rozee, Gulden, Cogs (Ford, Roberts)
Not playing for overall position and not worried about this bye round. Just want a side to play finals with and maybe take one of the leagues out.
I know bench cover is dodgy AF – have been more focussed on getting premos on field.
Wanted Sicily but yeah! Have considered getting Sinclair or Houston to finish Def (keeping Sheezel)
Have considered Neale and would love Clarry back, but would have to trade Sheezel to afford that.
Have considered Darcy up Fwd for DPP and move one of my premos into the midfield.
Can somebody tell me what the best tactical move would be? 8 trades left, so guessing I’ll be able to get 2 more premos from here with 3 spots open (would like Sheezel @ D6).
Open to Devon Robertson & Keays.
Maric & Harrison likely rookies with a premo
Which way do I go?
Darcy Cameron so you have Ruck Cover. Use a M/F as M8
Appreciate the response
TU-Serong and rozee
TD- Tim Kelly and laird
T/U- Kiddy Coleman
T/D- Josh Worrell
Gone back to the drawing board.
Out: Ford, Wardlaw, S Mitchell, Briggs
In: Petracca, Dawson, D Cam, Maric
Leaves me with 4 trades and Sheezel, Day and D Cam at D6, M8, F6.
Tu – good trades
Td – bad trades
TU: Deven Robertson
TD: Marcus Windhager
10 Trades Left
TU: M. Gawn + B. Humphrey + M. Johnson > R. Laird + D. Cameron + O. Mullin
Not optimal for this week but it means I’ll have a full-premium team.
TD: M. Gawn + E. Ford > D. Cameron + I. Maric
This option will let me squeeze a bit more from Humphrey and Johnson and upgrade next week instead.
Tu: Briggs & Ford > Oliver & Himmilberg
(3 trades required, leaves me full premo & 3 trades remaining for injury)
Td: Marshall & Ford > Oliver & Himmilberg
(2 trades required, leaves me full premo & 4 trades remaining for injury)
First option leaves me with an extra body this upcoming round however I am already decimated for players this week regardless.
Are some names missing in your TU line? (3 trades reqd, only 2 named??)
what premiums should i get???
You taking the p!$$ ? How can anyone answer that with no info provided?
You should get the cheapest ones who are going to score the most points.
thinking about doing some large trades this week.
Fyfe, Johnson, Ford, cincotta > Yeo, Oliver, Maric, Fletcher
Leaves me with a finished team plenty of bench cover, however, only 2 trades left which I dont think is very safe at this part of the season.
TU: do it
TD: save the trades
As we’re approaching the end of the byes and everyone is nearing full premo, I’d just thought I’d ask a few questions.
Is it more important in the long run to have the top line premos, or have adequate bench cover for them inevitable injuries?This week, I am tossing up whether I bring Oliver (and lose decent bench cover in Weddel) or someone cheaper like Tom Mitchell and maintain that decent bench cover rather than having dead rookies who won’t play again. I understand the loss of points from going Mitchell over Oliver, but the worst case scenario would be running out of trades several rounds out and having to field donuts or poor scoring rookies over multiple rounds. I’ll only have 3-4 trades after going full premo, but plan on having Humphrey and Weddel on my bench so that I don’t have to necessarily trade for only minor 1 week injuries.
Just wanted peoples thoughts on the different strategies going forward.
Appreciate any thoughts.
It’s very team specific.
So with 3-4 injury trades, yeah, I’d be going total points over bench cover. Keeping Humphrey you should do but Weddle making way for Satan isn’t a problem. Definitely something to be cognizant of though and does depend on the injury profile of your side.
Alright so, plot twist, it looks like a will keep Briggs and do my moves another way.
Ford -> Fletcher, 18 playing, crucially bring Drury to F8 loop
RoMo -> Bont (via Madden & Humph DPP)
Now that brings Briggs to R2, allows me to keep Humphrey at F7 and loop him with Owens via Drury and I end up with cover in Young, Cinc, Fletcher and Humph. Surprisingly good cover considering I’d had a dead bench for over a month.
Plan was always to merge Humph and Briggs for Bont but now I want to keep Humph and realized Briggs is more than serviceable OF. RoMo’s cash means I can move across to Bont guaranteed.
Plan courtesy of Abs, I could have never come up with this myself lol!
Interesting ploy GD.
I could do a similar play. Do you think you’d prefer English & RoMo (no cash left over to upgrade W Day at M8) or English & Briggs ($150k ITB to upgrade W Day at M8)?
In both cases I’d be left with 4 trades for the rest of the season.
TU Cincotta, Wardlaw, Ford > D Cameron, Maric, Dawson (21 for R16)
TD Ford > D Cameron (19 for R16)
I was originally planning to trade Sheezel and Ford this week but Sheezel’s move back to defence has me reconsidering.
So this week looking at:
Weddle, Ford, Angwin to Laird, Sheldrick, Maric
18 playing this week.
The final side after trades:
B: Stewart, Daicos, Dawson, Sinclair, Houston, Angus Brayshaw (Mitchell, Constable)
M: Bont, Laird, Neale, Andy Brayshaw, Rozee, Gulden, Green, Walsh (Humphrey, Wilmot, Sharp)
R: Marshall, Briggs (Madden)
F: Dunkley, Taranto, Cogs, D Cameron, Sheezel, Hawkins (Sheldrick, Maric)
Plenty of bench cover including DPP if required but only 3 trades left for injuries/suspensions.
T/U Good trades
T/D Have another look
OUT: Ford, Cincotta, Humphreys
IN: Keays, Yeo, Maric
(6 trades left after these ones)
T/U – YES
T/D – NO
Best mid for last spot
Already have Oliver Bont laird merret green Neale brayshaw
Was thinking trac or libba
Any other suggestions welcome
Hi team, would love some thoughts on what I should do this week. Please help a gal out 🙂
Current team below, pre trades (Can make 4 this week as 1 boost left). 12 Trades left $8.2k ITB
Def: Daicos, Sic, Stewart, Sinc, Sheezel, Day (Cincotta, Weddle)
Mid: Laird, Bont, Bray, Neale, Green, Rozee, Gulden, Ashcroft (Humpa, Davey, Constable)
Rucks: Witts Romo (Briggs)
Fwd: Dunkley, Taranto, Cogs, Darcy Cameron, Mitchell, Ford (Madden, Maric)
17 playing R15 (assuming No Sicicly)
With Sicily confirmed out for 3 weeks, I’d be doing Sicily, Briggs & Ford to Dawson, Clarry (provided he’s back) and any rookie that gets named that you can afford, potentially E Hewett from the eagles as he should be back from injury but just need to see if he gets named
Current predicament –
Cincotta and Humphrey last two rookies to upgrade to premo.
Can go Cincotta – Ryan this week by trading Ford and Wardlaw to Harrison and Fletcher/Lohman. This will leave me with the following players on the bench and not much cash gen:
Constable, Mullin, Fletcher, Humphrey, Drury, Moyle, Maric and Buller.
Want to bring Butters in for Humphrey.
Do I wait for Ford and Wardlaw to come back in and make more cash?
Or wait for the likes of Maric and Fletcher to fatten up and then trade one down to then upgrade Humphrey -> Butters?
8 trades left
Cincotta/Ford > Harrison/Maric
Johnson > DCam ( 65k)
Briggs > DCam ( 254k)
1 trade next week (Johnson > Briggs)
JHF and Ashcroft out
Butters and Windhager in
After Butters bye?
Briggs, Wardlaw, Ford and Humphrey > Merrett, Luke Ryan, Sheldrick and Madden
Leaves me with 6 trades left one rookie on field
TU: Good Trade
TD: Bad Trade
T/U – L Ryan
T/D – Lloyd
Going to use the last boost as was my plan to trade all possible this round.
Briggs -> Maric via Madden DPP
Ford -> Sheldrick via Simpson DPP
Cincotta -> Yeo
Ziebell -> Oliver via DPP x 2
Ranked inside top 250 leaves me with 4 trades full promo ish Steele who will go.
Hold fire on Satan for now, Hynsi. Word is he is battling uphill for this weekend.
Otherwise, great trades, great side, great rank and tyvm for getting me onto Humph all those weeks ago! Godsend!
GB mind having a look at my team above? TIA
Hey GD, Humphrey is a gun love the look of him.
Will re-assess once teams drop around Oliver but still want to make the 4 trades to almost complete my team. We will see.
Who to hold for the remainder of the year??
T/U – Wardlaw
T/D – M. Johnson
T/U – Dawson
T/D – Serong
In: W. Day, J. Fletcher, R. Maric
Out: A. Cincotta, E. Ford, R. Angwin
Who to get at D6;
Out: Sicily, Cincotta, Ford
Ins: Oliver, Hawkins, Maric
This will ultimately leave me with Hawkins/Fyfe at F7/F8
TU or TD?
T/U – Sinclair
T/D – Lloyd
OUT: Ford, Cincotta, Sicily
IN: Petracca, Yeo, Maric
Humphreys to Keays
Yes or No
Bear with me : Trying to work out what is better for the rest of the season – to trade in a non-playing D/F rookie (there aren’t any playing ones) so that if I keep Sheezel, he can swing between D/F, OR trade in a cheapo playing rookie like Harrison and keep Sheezel as D6 with no option to move fwd. Mucked up last week when I traded out Mitchell from the Hawks – should have kept him and traded out Weddle instead to keep the swing open. I don’t need this cheap D/F rookie to be playing as have adequate bench cover, its purely to keep the DPP option.
TU : Trade in a $102k non playing rookie to keep the swing option with Sheezel
TD: Your overthinking it – keep Sheezel as DEF and trade in a rookie like Harrison
I personally brought Dewar in last week for the exact same reason. Rookies at this stage will be the last line of your bench and don’t really need to play so it’s good to be able to get your “premos” to be able to cover different lines. It’s allowed me to have 24 premo like objects (Sheezel, Steele and Keays as premo like) but I can cover every line with a premo rather than a rookie so would definitely recommend getting those swings in place
TU Devon Robertson + DP3
TD Clarry/Trac + Elijah Hewett/Harvey Harrison
Sic Ford Briggs > Dawson DP3 Dev Robertson
TU Good Trades
TD Bad Trades
Thoughts for M7?
TU: T Mitchell
Both will be effected by returning players. Mitchell’s TOG has had a bump with DeGoey out and Parkers center bounces with Mills missing.
Both will be good, but last few weeks they have had a bump that night not last
TD: Unlikely-to-play 102k mid rookie to allow F7 looping of Fyfe/Thomas
Probably the last trade of the season outside of the few I have kept aside for emergency. Comment: the actual last value trade of the season
Next week, Humphrey to:
Butters next week would allow Maric above^
Briggs, Sicily Ford and Humphrey > Merrett, Luke Ryan, Darcy Cameron and Madden
Leaves me with 6 trades left one rookie on field
Who to trade out
Cripps or Walsh as M7?
Who to get into F6?
Cogs should average higher, but DCam gives ruck coverage
Looking for trade ideas to get to almost full premo’s in fwd line. Currently have 6 trades left and 47k in bank…..any help or ideas is appreciated.
Stewart, Daicos, Dawson (Cincotta)
Sinclair, Lloyd, Ryan (Wagner)
Bont, Laird (Atkins)
Butters, Neale, Anderson (Sharp)
Gulden, Green, Coniglio (Uwland)
Dunkley, Taranto, Rozee (Davey)
Keays, Phillipou, Ford (Sinn)
TU- Luke Ryan (finishes Def)
TD- Cogs via DPP
TU: Jake Lloyd
TD: Luke Ryan
Yeo as an outside option. Injury prone I know but good scorer in a crap side (no offence GD)
TU: Jake Lloyd
TD: Luke Ryan.
Are there Any benefits of holding Sicily ???
Only if you’re super low on trades and playing for leagues. Another three weeks is a long time to keep $600k+ on the bench
TU D Cameron and ruck dpp
If you already have Laird and Dawson, is getting Keays as F6 wise. Or is that too many adelaide midfielders and better going for J Cam (have $460k available)
Tu: Still Keays
Td: Get J Cam
What would we rather?
Tu; Briggs R2 + 4 trades remaining for injury
Td; Marshall R2 + 3 trades remaining for injury
any rucks under 180k that will get another game this year or is getting a 102k ruck fine since i only have 1 rookie left on field ??
Not sure what to do with my team this week. 69K in the bank with 10 trades left.
Daicos, Dawson, Sheezel (Chesser)
Day, Weddle, Mitchell (Constable)
Dunkley, Bont, Laird, Merrett, Brayshaw, Warner, Walsh, Humphrey
(Baker, Cincotta, Simpson)
English, Marshall (Madden)
Taranto, Butters, Rozee, Gulden, Coniglio, Ford (JVR, Roberts)
Is Yeo for Sicily a good trade?
Leaves me with 5 trades but happy with my team!
TU – yes
TD – no
Need like for like
Locked in – Ford, Simpson > D.Cameron, Maric
T/U : M. Johnson > Sheldrick
T/D: Angwin > Any 102k rookie on any line
Sheldrick, Harrison, Maric or Jaspa fletcher?
Sheldrick is $90k more than Maric. thats a lot of cash.
i’ve gone Sheldrick, but am worried about his TOG last week and that will take a hit if heeney and Mills are back this week. Might be better to go Harrison who is on the bubble
Which one to trade out (the other will stay as bench cover for rest of season)?
TU : Weddle – gives me more cash for next week’s final upgrade
TD : Johnson – less cash for next week
Decided I’m going to hold Briggs at R2 and cash in on one of the other ruckman as Briggs presents a lot of value in holding and is putting out amazing numbers!
Ford > Yeo
Marshall > Oliver
Sharp > Fletcher
(Full premo & 3 trades remaining)
Don’t have enough for Oliver with only 2 trades with this option.
Ford > Yeo
English > Oliver
(Full premo & 4 trades remaining)
Second option allows an extra warm body this week however it means I trade our R1.
Marshall > Petracca
Ford > Yeo
(Full premo & 4 trades remaining, however no Oliver with this option)
Hi fellow Supercoaches, would love some thoughts on what I should do this week, as I’m in a bit of strife with only 16 playing.
Current team below before trades. *= bye
15 Trades left (Three boosts), $47.7k ITB
Def: Daicos, Stewart, Dawson, Lloyd, Weddle, S.Mitchell (Cincotta*, Constable)
Mid: Oliver, Bont*, Laird, ZMerrett, Macrae*, Green*, Steele, Humphrey (Wardlaw, Davey*, McLean)
Rucks: Marshall, Gawn (Madden)
Fwd: Dunkley, Taranto*, Rozee*, Cogs*, D.Cameron, JVR (Sheezel*, Ford *)
My honest thoughts are it is a very impressive team considering you have 15 trades remaining.
Assuming they get picked
Out Ford McLean Cincotta
In Mullin Maric Ryan (move Dawson into the mids) (if you can afford Harrison, better, so you can get Maric next round.
Gives you 19.
Next week- Weddle and Mitchell into a premium and a rookie- can be any line except ruck, using DPP
What is better?
TU – Trade out Sicily for Yeo (as part of 3 trades this week) which will leave me with 6 trades remaining and full premo
TD – Trade out Sicily for Ridley (as part of 4 trades this week, using my final boost) which leaves me with 5 trades remaining and full premo
I’m counting Yeo & Sheezel as “premo’s”.
Can only do one of these.
Caminiti > DCam
Steele > Laird
Pretty crap year so far – started well but has fell apart just before the byes with a few wrong moves.
Need to get a few upgrades but cash is very limited. Possibly being a bit silly bringing Oliver in given my situation but it gives me Bont, Tracc, Laird and Oliver, but also leaves the likes of Fyfe and Steele in M7 and M8 and only 6 trades left after this. DEF and FWD are at full premo (ish – I’m counting Sheez and potentially Keays)
IN: Oliver, Keays (as a forward), Maric
OUT: Briggs, Phillips, Mitchell (hawks)
Ranked #309 and have 12 trades left.
TU:Sicily > Reddog
TD: Sicily > Ryan
Sicily been a real headache and need a good POD.
Sorry 1 more question. Much appreciated.
Out: Sic, Roberts, Ford
In: Yeo, Neale, Maric
1 x Doughnut
Out: Sic, Johnson, Ford
In: Ryan/Reddog, Neale, Maric
2 x Doughnuts
Full premo including Grundy and Sheezel. 9 trades ITB.
T/U Harvey Harrison
T/D Kai Lohmann
Can only bring in ONE this week and the other next week. I get that they’re both coming off their bye with low BE’s so I guess who will rise less this week?
TU: R. Laird
TD: D. Cameron
Best defensive POD to finish my backline?
Dawson, Daicos, Sinclair, Stewart, Sheezel
Ryan is the safe option but unsure about his last 5 weeks.
Can you Wait a week for docherty…
He should out score Ryan from here
Doc a bit out of my price range. Thinking Blakey as a POD.
Have 8 trades and 6.7k ITB
Stewart, Dawson, Sinclair, Redman, Lloyd, Ryan (Chesser, Gilbee)
Bont, Laird, Merrett, Neale, Brayshaw, Gulden, Green, Fyfe (Sharp, Constable, Wagner)
Romo, Gawn (Madden)
Dunkley, Taranto, Rozee, D.Cam, Sheezel, Humphrey (Ford, Harrison)
Just thinking 1 trade this week Ford –> Maric. Nets me 156k. Means I have 19/20 playing this week. Then gamble on Humphrey meeting his BE this week and more to afford Butters/Libba. Leaves Fyfe has only non-keeper.
Hi team, would love some thoughts on what I should do this week. Please help a gal out
Current team below, pre trades (Can make 4 this week as 1 boost left). 12 Trades left $8.2k ITB
17 playing R15 Pre Trades
Something I would be tempted to do if I was in your situation:
OUT: Cincotta, Ford, Briggs (Too much cash on the bench and you have Darcy Cameron as ruck cover as well)
Swing Rozee into the Forwardline
IN: A ruck rookie worth 102k, A MID premo who has already had the bye, eg. Anderson and another rookie for Cincotta.
Should have a solid bank then to upgrade Ashcroft and Mitchell when ready and also downgrading Humphries.
Just my thoughts, good luck! 🙂
Also Sic -> Dawson as well 🙂
Mostly agree with Dusty here Mumma
I would go..
Sicily to Dawson Bank $80k
Ford to Harvey Harrison. ( if named ) Bank $ 215k
Briggs to midfielder of your choice. ( swing Rozee forward )
Next week look at downgrading Cincotta and upgrading Ashcroft.
or you could upgrade Weddle and move Sheezel (via Mitchell) forward and keep Mitchell as cover down back.
Best of luck.
If you are playing for rank id get rid off Sic and bring in Dawson or Oliver if playing.
Otherwise id look to upgade rookies on bye like cincotta and ford to cheaper rookies so you have cash to upgrade likes of Ashcroft.
Also need to think of keeping briggs or not. I have English and RoMo and decided to keep them over briggs.
Does Ziebell need to go?
Have the trades, so was thinking straight swap for Cameron for ruck coverage.
I think so. His gull role he had at the start of the year is gone and now they are going to give more opps to the kids.
Keep sheezel if you have him though. I thinn he will get the Ziebell / Hall role for rest of the year
You’re in a really good position with your cows. Pretty much just need to cash them in, do some swaps and upgrades over the next couple of rounds.
If I were you I’d think about:
Briggs -> swap in Madden and get a cheap FWD (such as Harrison) = 344.9k. This will also help your D Cameron DPP if needed.
Weddle -> straight downgrade to a cheap DEF (such as Mullins) = 237.4k. Don’t need to be too picky here as you already have cover with Cincotta.
With your 8.2 ITB you should have 590.5 to play with.
Humphrey -> bring on-field over Ashcroft and upgrade to a premium MID (such as Libba) = -208.5k
Ford -> swap with Gulden, swap Guldens MID spot with Day and upgrade to a premium DEF (such as Dawson) = -321.2k
Ashcroft -> straight downgrade to a cheap-ish MID. You’ll need to be a bit picky as your bench cover is a bit thin here. Back solve your price from the next trade but you should have $190k to play with.
S Mitchell -> swap with Rozee and upgrade to a premium MID (such as Cerra). Another plus with Cerra is that is isn’t playing this week so you can map out your pricing/strategy this week.
Based on above you should have 6 trades left, a completed team, plus 140 point on field average, and good spread with Sheezel in D6, Day in M8 and Cameron in F6 (with ability to swing RUC).
Best of luck!!
The typical disclaimers: all in my own opinion, do your own research etc
This is solid advice, I’d just consider a premo mid who is playing this week over Libba. Darcy Parish should be back this week but Serong, Anderson, Mitchell etc are all options too. Potentially you could just do Dawson here and then bring in Ridley or Ryan in defence to have some more cash for future moves.
Then the other thing that could be worth considering (only because you’ll have enough players this week) is to bring in a $102k def/fwd in the opposite line to Sheezel to allow you to use him as cover in both lines rather than a rookie who will likely not be in your best 18 this week
Nailed it Johnno, didn’t even think of that def/fwd rookie move.
Sicily – Petracca
Briggs – Oliver
Ford – Maric (Can get Sheldrick but relying on Humphrey and Johnson to make 10k or so bit risky for next week means I could miss Butters as my last upgrade)
there is still some doubt about Oliver playing this week. even if he does, he might not be going at 100% rat-power.
Might be worth to wait a week, especially with his high BE
Will be full premo next week with Butters coming in I have everyone I want at the moment. Money not an issue
Out: Humphrey, Ford and Briggs
In: Yeo, Cameron, Keays
Leaves me with 4 trades left and no rookies on field
Sheldrick is $70k more than Harrison. thats a lot of cash.
Cheers Derek !
Thanx for your kind reply
and yeah, & 70k is alot of coin.
Will make decision when teams drop.
Thinking was ..Sheldrick v Eagles & have memories of Horse really liking him before he was drafted.
Harrison has far better disposal efficiency & plays in a better side. …think I may have talked myself into a call …with some wise words! 🙂
Sheldrick had 55% TOG last week. and that was with Heeney and Mills out.
he kicked two goals that gave his score a boost
TU: LDU (next week)
TD: keays (this week)
Thinking of using my last boost!
How do these 4 trades sound?
Outs: Sicily, Atkins, Ford, Davey
Ins: Oliver, Yeo, Windhager, Maric
i’m going to wait a week on Oliver. has high BE and is still under an injury cloud.
Hardly improves your premos. Everyone you trade in now is likely a keeper. Sic to anyone but Oliver for sure but can you find a “one up one down” somehow elsewhere….maybe to a Keays type.
Is Merrett finished as uber premo now that Parish is back?
I think CD will still award him pts for getting within 5metres of the ball and cp points for uncontested possessions but will Parish take a large chunk of the disposal points that he gets
To the SC community,
does anyone have any idea why the site “Tooserious” is slow in updating to the previous round?
Its a great site to help with stats etc when trading.
It’s a pain. A site called footywire can help
Torn between two trades:
TU: Wardlaw + Sicily -> DCam + Petracca and 29.7K in the bank
TD: Ford + Sicily -> Dcam + Parish and 82.7K in the bank
After either trade I’ll have 4 trades left with Humphrey at M8
Trying to finish off my team this round and really umming and ahhing through some options. My first two trades are Ford and Wardlaw to Cameron and a rookie ($102k mid rookie) which finishes the team with Fyfe covering M9/F7 and leaves me with $236k to do:
TU: Macrae & Johnson to Dawson and Keays with $116k for injury trades and Keays can then loop with Steele on the run home while Fyfe and Ziebell can loop with each other in the forwards.
TD: Ziebell & Sheezel to Dawson & Parish (or anyone below $590k) with $24k for injuries but get the better players in with Steele at M8 and Cameron at F6 with Fyfe swinging between M9 and F7
Or Tu: Ziebell to Dawson and then Johnson to Himmelberg next week for D7
Who would you rather trade in
TU: Cameron and Maric
TD Keays and Wimdhager
Is it worth trading Wardlaw for Keays
T/U: Sharp, Ford and Cincotta for Windhager, Harvey Harrison and Ryan/Ridley
T/D: sharp, ford, cincotta, Humphrey for windhager, Harrison, will day and Darcy cameron
T/U: Will Day
OUT: Ford, Cincotta, Sicily, Humphrey
IN: Petracca, Yeo, Maric, Keays
Torn on trading Marshall vs Briggs
T/U – Marshall out to allow final two upgrades (Mitchell & Oliver). Will leave full premo wtih 4 trades left – Fyfe & S.Mitchell as best bench cover
T/D – Briggs out for same two upgrades – will leave 5 trades left @ Full Premo – Fyfe & Maric as bench cover (no DEF Cover unless a rookie appears)
TU: Steele > Laird
TD: Steele> Brayshaw.
Comment: Steel> Other ? Neale
Miss Petracca by 10,000 🙂
Best cheap (under $530k) upgrade target playing this week
TU – Yeo D6 & $65k, BE -9
TD – D Cameron F6 & $0, ruck cover for the rest of the season via McAndrew, BE 70
Comment other ideas
Are we tired of waiting for Clarry yet ?….God knows I am.
dropped out of the eight & 2 games behind in my cash league..Arrrgh
Honestly, is it worth Clarry to Petracca this week ?
Thanks to all who have given a response… Appreciated !
TU – Darcy cameron, 7 trades left full premo.
TD – Butters, 6 trades left full premo.
Is butters worth an extra trade?
Interesting. So next week (assuming Oliver is back playing), is he worth an extra trade? Can’t get him in 2 trades but I can in 3
TU- Oliver is worth the extra trade
TD – forget him, that extra trade is GOLD
Is it worth waiting on a libba or Oliver as last upgrade or grab someone playing this week, maybe tracca.. I already have 18 playing anyway.
TU . Hold off gor Oliver or libba
TD . Get tracca
Which sub $170k players have the best job security?
7 trades left and one spot each to fill in the Back line as well as the midfield:
TD: D Cameron
Basically who to keep
TU – Sheezel (would need to bring in Harrison)
TD – Humphrey (can bring in Lohmann or cheaper)
The other may go next week, and new rookies will be off-field post byes.
OUT: Ford, Cincotta, Sicily, Briggs
IN: Petracca, Yeo, Maric, Keays
15 trades and 99k in the bank..
NEED TO MOVE SHEEZEL INTO FWD. LINE.cogniglio fwd. and what to do then oh gods of the keyboard and supercoach..who goes and who comes in..many thanks to any contribution from the gallery…
Thats a ridiculously good side with still 15 trades left.
Cash generation is limited though.
Ford >> Harrison
English >> Briggs
Cincotta >> Dawson
Dawson onfield >> Sheezel to bench
Sheezel to FWD next week when you trade van Rooyen out
Will probably need just 1 more downgrade from here on out to have some cash in the bank. 6 trades left and full premo.
Is it worth going Johnson – Harrison?
Will leave 160k ITB for any emergency trades.
T/U: Go for it
T/D: Wait, could be better options than Harrison to come through.
TU: Sheldrick and Luke Ryan
TD: Jaspa Fletcher and Jake Lloyd
TU: Sicily, Briggs, Ford, Sharp > Darcy Cameron, Luke Ryan, Sheldrick and Fletcher. 18 players playing this round, allows me to get a full premium team in two weeks.
TD: Sicily, Briggs, Ford, Humphrey> Merrett, Luke Ryan, Sheldrick and Darcy Cameron. Leaves me with only 17 players playing this week and allows me to get a full premium team next week.
Keep in mind im playing for overall rank, cheers legends
