Title: Player X vs Player Y - 2019
Post by: PassivePenguin on December 23, 2018, 10:28:08 PM
Thought I would get the ball rolling with Player X vs Player Y

My Query
Titch, Macrae, Crouch, Zerrett vs. Cripps, Oliver, Kelly, Neale
Title: Re: Player X vs Player Y - 2019
Post by: RaisyDaisy on December 23, 2018, 11:55:12 PM
Drop Macrae for Oliver, upgrade Crouch to Neale

Haven't done the sums but should be pretty close

Titch is a must imo

R.Gray vs T.McLean
Title: Re: Player X vs Player Y - 2019
Post by: PassivePenguin on December 24, 2018, 12:33:42 AM
R.Gray vs T.McLean
Probably Gray since McLean's midfield minutes looked like they got eaten up by dunkley and may be restricted even more with Libba going back in, Gray without Wingard may move back into the midfield
Title: Re: Player X vs Player Y - 2019
Post by: Ringo on December 24, 2018, 08:34:47 AM
Still on Gray

Gray v Dunkley

Regarding Query 1
Titch, Macrae, Crouch, Zerrett  (2,386,600) vs. Cripps, Oliver, Kelly, Neale (2,495,600)
Agree with RD here as Titch is a virtual must have.
Titch, Oliver, Neale and Zerrett cost 2,475,500 slightly better scoring as well

Post by: RaisyDaisy on December 24, 2018, 09:04:40 AM
Everyone pick Dunkley or McLean

Gray is my POD  ;)

FWIW I'd be picking Dunkley over McLean too

Goods points on Gray.   Only worthwhile if his onball minutes increase.   Otherwise it is feast and famine and my old heart can't take the strain of having to rely on Gray to score to win a match.

Just thinking about it,  who do Port have to get a winning score each week.
Grey 36,Dixon 26, Ryder 10, Westhoff 24, Lycett 10, S Gray 21, Boak, 19, Watts 18, Motlop 11.          Still pretty thin on the ground in getting the ball through the posts.

Likes of Rockliff best years were high teens,   Motlop is capable of 30+,  Watts is only a high teens scorer historically. 
So Dixon is capable of adding 20 goals,  Motlop 20 goals, lose about 10-15 with Wingard to Lycett.   Still sees a high reliance on Gray.    If so why would they increase his onball time at expense of scoring capability.

Gray is needed forward.
Perusing Port forums most have him in the fwd line, with minimal mid time if team is struggling there.
Ebert, Rocky, SPP, Wines will play inside with Westhoff and Motlop on the wings.  a
Apart from the later half of this year Wingard was mostly fwd, they'll need Gray to kick goals.
They'll get more goals out of Ryder being able to spend more time forward, but apart from that there's???

Brodie Smith vs Dylan Roberton??
And reasons why

Hmm honestly not a fan of either but...
I would pick Roberton here.

Roberton has actually been a premo (look 2017) whereas Smith hasn't actually been a packable premium before. Have also seen SOME saints supporters saying he will be the main interceptor out of defence (Savage is an in and out prospect meaning he can very easily be dropped).

Smith would be more of a stepping stone compared to Roberton who has a higher chance of becoming a premium this year. I'm not buying the whole "new kick out rule gives more points" that's pure speculation and CD will have accounted for that possibly making it so that the kick the from the defender will only be worth 1 point or something.

Both of them are good value and pretty sure we will be forced to use one or two players like this and Roberton seems the best choice but lets see what happens through the preseason and agree this kick out rule change is being overblown a bit there is still the same amount of points to be carved up I'm guessing so thinking there might be a small benefit to some players.

Post by: PassivePenguin on January 01, 2019, 01:32:31 PM
M Crouch vs Z Merrett

Both GREAT options (Have both personally), Adelaide have a fairly soft draw for what they are capable of which leads me to believe Crouch will be a consistently good scorer (since Sloane is the one who usually gets the tag). Merrett on the other hand usually gets the tag (not too sure on how Shiel affects this) but he did learn to deal with it.  I would choose Crouch only because Merrett gets tagged more often leading to slightly lower scores (90-105 rather than 110+).
Title: Re: Player X vs Player Y - 2019
Post by: Peter on January 01, 2019, 02:47:49 PM
I had Crouch to start with, due to draw, then saw Merrett has higher ceiling. Yes, could go both too. Thanks for your thoughts
Title: Re: Player X vs Player Y - 2019
Post by: RaisyDaisy on January 01, 2019, 03:20:16 PM
This is one I'm really struggling with

Luke Ryan vs Connor Blakely

I read previously that Ryan has been urged by Ross to step it up again this year and take the game on more, and I had him last year too which he was very good

Blakely I keep seeing is being touted as the number 1 replacement for Neale, so I expect him to spend a lot of time in the mids

I actually think both could be very good picks, but picking one over the other to start with is a genuine coin flip
Title: Re: Player X vs Player Y - 2019
Post by: crowls on January 01, 2019, 06:46:18 PM
when in doubt go for the midfielder.   normally more upside unless they are a Laird or Docherty.

Neither really. It doesn't help Rockys sloppy ass body from getting injured and Gray will play a similair role fwd and mid

Zach Merrett vs Matt Crouch

Asked this question this time last year and turns out there was no right answer lol

I started Crouch last year because I was super keen on him and how he finished 2017. We all know how that ended lol he lasted a game and half  :'(

More to the point, I feel like Sloane should be better this year, and Brad Crouch is returning now too. That combined with the fact Matt seems to need 40 touches to break 120 is why I'm looking to start Zerrett, even with the arrival of Shiel

Post by: Ringo on January 15, 2019, 07:48:24 AM
I would be looking at Zerrett. He started the year slowly last year with having difficulty with tags. Suspect Shiel will get the initial tag/ rum with role which further assists Zerrett.

Brad Crouch returning ,ay effect Matt as well/

Disagree. I think Chad has more upside. Especially at their respective prices.
Dev relied on massive tackle numbers to score well, and those numbers will be hard to back up. Sheil likely to affect his mid time as well. Hard to see where any improvement comes from, I think 95 at best.
Chad is playing for a better team, so should get more opportunities to score, as well as getting some of Titch's midfield mins.
Lots of room for improvement, could go 105.

I'm the opposite to you

Can't see any reason why Dev will stop tackling as much. He came to Essendon to be a mid and he's cemented that spot now. Shiel will impact someone else

Looking at Chad myself but 105 seems extremely ambitious! Somewhere in the 90-100 range I think

Not sure Titchless Hawks are a better side either...

It's just that 8 tackles a game is not easy to sustain. Dev still spent a high percentage of time fwd, hence still being a fwd/mid in SC. He's quite a handy goal kicking fwd and compliments Raz and Tippa nicely.
Not saying he's a bad pick, just don't think he will improve his average and there is more upside in others.
Hawthorn still a better side sans Titch than the Port Pooer.

I'd probably dump Billings, swing Setterfield forward to replace him and bring in another cheap mid rookie for the bench

Then, with the 300k+ you have, use that to upgrade Newman to a proven prem, and use the left over cash to upgrade Sauce or one of Brayshaw/Crouch

A) Sicily + Macrae + Walsh + 123k Forward rookie  (High end premos and rookie )

vs

B) Z.Williams (D4) + Zerrett + 117K rookie + Gray (F4)

Get more depth with the second option and limit on field rookies. Provides risk in my backline though as D1 is Whitfield then D2 Blakely and D3 Witherden.

Can't decide between slightly different structures...although I'm leaning towards a 'GnR' a bit more (option A):
Option A: S.Walsh, Grundy, Rankine

Option B: Libba/Miles, Kreuzer, JJ Kennedy

Option A... just
Don't trust Kreuzer's body and JJ Kennedy could be a bit hit or miss. I do like Miles though.
Grundy is an easy R1 lock and two rookies should hopefully perform well.

Yeah Grundy and 2 rookies the go. Walsh may be an OK option but I think there will be far better value options than Rankine in the GC fwd line.
You could also have Kreuz to partner Grundy and/or find a way to fit Libba/Miles in.

I think Grundy is a must so would go option A. I do have kruezer at R2 though but happy to take a risk for that spot. Also a lot of injury risk with all of those in B.

JJK is a 90 point player though
If he doesn't kick goals he doesn't score well, averaged 73 from 11 games last year.
However, he has a big ceiling and can pump out big scores.
Hence my hit or miss comment, could either be a great pick, or could be too inconsistent.

Yerp JJK is hit and miss Has played 28 games for 2017/18 and has only 8 scores more than 100 but 13 below 80 so risk there. Does not seem to have gotten back to his 2016 highs.

Wines with a shoulder injury, extent of it is not known yet but if Wines does miss a decent stint of games then expect Gray to get more mid time.

Gray for me even prior to the wines news, more so now.

too many combinations in this game ::)

Macrae + Goldstein vs Dusty + Gawn

Macrae = Not sure he can keep it up (ala Dusty last year)
Goldstein = Probably the only player over 30 in my team after I told myself never again

Dusty = Will he go back to 110+? or will Richmond just put him in cotton wool the entire season till finals
Gawn = Preuss.

Dusty & Gawn for me. Reckon Macrae needs to back up his 2018 before I fork out such a sum. Think he'll settle in at 110-115 which is fine but should drop 80k.

Dusty played with niggles all last year & it showed, this season he has a clean bill of health & will only benefit with Lynch in the side (less forward time). Worst case with Dusty is M8 which is what he's priced at so nothing lost, he's also a very durable player.

Yeah Greene streets ahead ordinarily but his lack of running is a concern. I would still prefer him to Libb and Miles, both of whom I think are very limited. Miles probably a poor mans Lyons imo so I see 85 as his mark and I worry about Libba and his inability to play any other role aside from as an inside midfielder

Miles for mine. Greene is the only potential keeper but him & Libba both have some serious injury concerns & tribunal trouble for Greene whereas Miles finished the VFL season strong. I think Miles is nearly a lock for AF but I am still undecided in SC.

His coach gave some good insight into Toby the other morning on SEN with Tim and Gary. Maybe people could podcast it ?
Basically he said he's been training and running since start January, so 4 weeks of good running and he has another 5-6 weeks remaining in the pre season and hopefully no more hiccups.

There's only a few players in the league I would consider picking off a dud preseason, particularly one where its a foot-related injury, and tbh Toby is one of these. Not sure of the stats on the ground he covers but I feel like the supply he gets and the fact he's a good one on one player mean he will score regardless

Depends if you think Smith is going to be a defensive keeper.

If not then it is simple. Miles IMO is likely to make more cash than Smith. Whitfield more likely to be a top 6 in his position then Beams is.

Miles/Whitfield for me is the better option.

 Dylan  Roberton   V   Hunter  Clark.    Both Saints, both available as defenders, and both priced within  4k of each other.

Toss a coin between Lloyd and Laird. Lloyd may benefit more from the new rules but watch JLT.
Injury to Blakely has muddied the choice between Withers and Ryan so again watch JLT
Going Laird and Withers though gives you an extra 50k which may help gain another premium.

Roberton for me as has been reported prior to injury he was 4 in AFL for playing on and if used in that role again he has a higher ceiling but again watch through JLT.

Lloyd and Withergoat by a street for me. Wouldn't be shocked to see Lloyd go 110+ and Withers 100 with the new kick-in rules.

Roberton for me too here, just more proven and I'm not really about picking 2nd year players. Wouldn't be shocked to see both average 80s but I deem Roberton doing it a fair bit more likely

Player for player im sure all agree Merritt is well established and proven. Reason i have put it up...Worpel has been killing it in training and he will be having increased Mid minutes.
Merritt is a gun but when tagged can go missing. Not sure if Shiel coming over will make a difference. I would still expect the tag to head to Merritt.

With Mitchell going down someone has to get a lot of extra mid time so Worpel could be the man but we have a very small sample size of him so far so Merrett has to be the one

Easy, pick Worpel forward and Merrett in the midfield!

Otherwise, it's Merrett for sure. Already has runs on the board, and with Shiel around him for support I can't see him not improving.

I can't justify spending the extra 200k on Lloyd over Williams for 10-15 extra points. So option 2, should have change left too.

Tossing up Worpel v Merritt
Player for player im sure all agree Merritt is well established and proven. Reason i have put it up...Worpel has been killing it in training and he will be having increased Mid minutes.
Merritt is a gun but when tagged can go missing. Not sure if Shiel coming over will make a difference. I would still expect the tag to head to Merritt.

Anyways they are my thoughts...would love to know yours

Merret by an absolute mile.

I can't understand the Worpel hype at all. The kids played 12 games. Getting extra midfield time won't automatically turn him into a premium. Will average 90 at absolute best where as Merrett will average 100 at worst

The same could be said about Oliver at the start of 2017.

It’s rare that a player does it in his second year but the scene is set for Worpel as the way he plays suits SC plus obviously the injury to Mitchell helps a great deal.

Not expecting a 110 average like Clarry the GOAT did in his second year but I can see him going 95+

I suppose Oliver did do something very few have ever done in their 2nd season but the chances of Worpel doing it are very very slim. 95 is fair but stil doesn't compare to Merrett who should go 105-115. They shouldn't really be compared anyway though as you would only ever pick Worpel as a forward

Worpel was also just about worst on ground in both finals and scored 37 and 54 to go with a 33 and 32 in 2 of his other 9 games. It's asking a hell of a lot for him to even go 90. I just don't see it

Think I'm going to avoid both and have a 5th uber premium out of Macrae vs Oliver.  Macrae's ceiling is hard to ignore, Oliver's is pretty good too.  Will leave me with a mid line of Cripps, Macrae/Oliver, Fyfe, Neale, Dusty.

Did go 109.9 post bye last year. I think he can go around that mark in 2019. That puts him right on the fringe of the top 8 MIDS in the comp (not counting Danger) so I can see why people have got him seeing he is ranked 27th MID in price (once again not counting Danger). I only have him AF & RDT atm but I wouldn't mind him in my SC side.

The reason you pick Matt Crouch is the fact that post bye 2017 until now he has scored

132, 131, 116, 104, 134, 120, 139, 139, 91, 146, 126, 119, 125, 105, 51 (injured 5 mins into the second quarter), 100, 122, 92, 100, 106, 68, 95, 126, 101, 85, 112, 112, 127, 107, 131, 88

Excluding the injury game he has 24/30 100+ games, five scores between 85 and 95 (95, 92, 91, 88, 85) and only one real stinker of 68.

Absolute model of consistency. Average of 113 over his past 30 games. And he's priced at 100.

Also the injury definitely impeded his season. Would've gone 130+ in Round 2, so would've been on track for an easy 110+ year and hence priced at 600k plus.

fyfe libba v macrae cousins

I'm having exactly the same issue.

I've gone Fyfe & Libba until after the JLT series, purely for the JS of Cousins.  Bloody hawthorn did us no favours by playing their Box Hill side against an almost full strength Lions outfit.  We didn't really learn much about the finals contending Lions and just got teasers from the Hawks rookie list - that will probably not get a game for the rest of the year (Gold, Hanrahan, Ross, Moore, Scrimshaw etc).  Does Cousins fit in that group? - dunno.

Of course I might end up with Fyfe/Cousins.  :-\


I can't pick the points difference as I think it will be even.  Fyfe and libba may end up being keepers, but not as confident about Cousins keeper status.

Cousins could go big and Libba could pick up another injury and throw it all out the window.

I keep back flipping on this one. Neale gone lumps a huge weight on Fyfes shoulders. Will he go to the next level or will it prove too much on his already injury susceptible body?

Can Macrae carry on last years form, of all the doggies midfielders himself and Libba are the least likely to rotate forward and I’d say will almost exclusively play midfield minutes.

Wouldnt you have the cash to go Macrae in both options?

Lean to Lloyd/Walsh atm but as mentioned before, keep an eye on Libba again next week

Very possibly, will have to check.
Well like I mean, Walsh is 90k less than Libba, Lloyd is 150k more than WitherGOAT, so going Lloyd down and Walsh up should mean you can keep Macrae and bank an extra 60k

And if you were only focussed on league wins?

Would still go Grundy and Walsh, because it's much easier to trade in someone like Neale than it will be to bring in Grundy. Should get more cash gen from Walsh than Mummy as well imo (and quicker). We don't know how Mummy will return after a lot of time out of the game.

Roberton & Goldstein vs Quaynor & Gawn

&

Fyfe vs Yeo? Cash not an issue.
I like Yeo as a POD, and worried about Fyfe's durability but will hurt when he's banging out 150s at Optus..
I would be Roberton & goldy but then I am one who likes consistency.

Roberton conservatively say 85 = keeper
Goldstein say 100 = Keeper
185

Quaynor = 70 = trade
Gawn = 120 = keeper
190

Line ball but Quaynor is not a keeper! So one more trade = X.

Yeo Yeo Yeo ... both have high ceilings, are mildly erratic but IMO Yeo is more durable (touch wood)

Whitfield will be one of the elite defenders. Mills might be; he has risk written all over him.
Collins is a good starting pick.
You miss out on Roberton but I wouldn’t be happy with Mills to get him.

My theory is get the expensive guy & then use a correction trade if things look bad. Macrae will be hard to get in if you don't start him.

Zorko. Brayshaw had an amazing year, finished 3rd in the brownlow, and only averaged 97. Hard to see him lifting his scores to premo level from there. Zorko has the history of being able to go around that 110avg, and if anything, the new guys coming in + the younger guys developing more should mean he gets a bit more help with having to deal with a tag. Averaged almost 110 after R6 last year as well, when he seemed to get better with beating a tag too.

Only concern I have with Zorko is that in some games he spends long periods of time floating around half fwd while Fagan gives the younger guys like Rayner/McCluggage etc a run in the middle. This obviously works well in some games where he kicks bags of 4+ goals, but it can also mean he goes missing. I agree though, I prefer him over Brayshay; Brayshaw's ball use is horrendous and not SC friendly whatsoever.

Well, with the continued improvement of our younger guys running through the midfield, he should have a lot more opportunity to hit the scoreboard in those scenarios.

Here's my take, Kelly probably spends more time in the guts with Ablett playing forward although there might be some readjustment if Geelong slides & Kelly still wants out. This has always been my concern. Robbie Gray has stated his midfield minutes will increase but with Boak & Rocky spending more time in the middle who knows really. Quite torn on this but have given the slightest edge to Kelly on the grounds he's cheaper. Thoughts?

Boak a pretty safe selection, not sure about upside, probably around the 90 mark which is solid for a bloke who rarely misses any football. Certainly one to consider.

Boak vs Mundy

I actually don't mind going both. Its boring and not very flashy but both are teeing up a big ramp up in midifeld time. Wouldn't be shocked to see both finish with high 90s averages - Boak for me if I had to choose
had both at different stages in preseason.  starting boak atm

2 alternatives:

a) Hurn + Boak + Gawn

b) Laird + menegola + Goldy

also is miles to B.crouch worth downgrading laird or gola to boak or hurn respectively.

Indeed, I believe there is in fact a hidden meaning in this, which eludes to Matt Crouch being a better player and scorer than Brad Crouch.

Probably been asked but Grundy v Gawn

I feel gawns game is slightly more sustainable and will average around 110 assuming Preuss doesnt play, But grundy could be anything from 100-120 so finding them very hard to split, and I only want one (refuse to fork out 1.4mil for 2 rucks)

Who is your 2nd ruck? If I was only starting one of them, I'd be leaning towards Grundy, but honestly I can't see either of them dropping back far enough to not comfortably be the top 2 rucks. So unless you're fielding a mid-pricer, gotta go with both.

Also agree on Steele and BCrouch, Lyons will likely be in that 95-100 range, and whilst Sheed has put together some really good footy recently, I can't see him keeping that up for a whole season. Would rather spend less and go for Libba, or a touch more for Rocky.

Pick one mid to get rid of... (Benefits in brackets)

Macrae (Gawn R2 and $53k)
Cripps (Gawn R2 and $11k)
Oliver (Goldy R2 and $130k)
Coniglio (Goldy R2 and $96k)
M.Crouch (Goldy R2 and $58k)

I think Gawn is a better pick than Goldy but, if you think otherwise, the first two give me $197k and $155k, respectively, which I'm sure I could use elsewhere.

Really depends on how you use that money. Smith is the better choice than Moore unless you can use the money well enough (e.g. Goldy to Gawn or Rookie to Libba). I'd still probably lean towards Smith tbh.

Macrae and Libba vs Neale and Sheed

Macrae and Libba. Don't like Sheed's awkward price. Macrae a definite Top 10 mid whereas Neale is more in the "highly likely" category.

100%, Brayshaw is on my watchlist for now, if his disposal efficiency improves throughout the season then I'll pick him up, but as it stands he needs 40+ possessions to score the same as what Oliver does with 25. AF lock, SC wait and see.

Conigs + Oliver vs Macrae + Steele/Zorko

I'd go the first one. I think Steele and Zorko would need to be keepers at their prices and I doubt they will be. Two definite keepers vs. one and a gamble.

A couple of months ago I was keen on Zerrett but he hasn't ticked enough boxes for me.

Cheers people, yeah could go Crouch x2 but don't like too many players from one team, already have Smith in back line.
Hmmmm decisions.

Edit: Plus I have a gut feeling about Rocky this year, at least for the first 6 or so rounds anyway....I guess I just answered my own question? M Crouch Rocky It is..( with a sick feeling in my stomach ha)

Rocky has better scoring history than BCrouch, better injury history (somewhat), and is slightly cheaper as well. Brad could end up the better pick, but if I was gonna take the risk on one, it'd be Rocky. I guess the only issue with Rocky is if Port don't play him in the guts full time, but that's the risk you take I guess

Yeah agree with you mate. At his price and a great pre-season I'm trying to convince myself not to pick him....Have enough to put him at M6

Hardly odd when Scrimshaw was effectively booted from GC, was eventually traded for chump change. Clark has outstanding skills & has the professionalism to match. Scrimshaw was berated by teammates for playing Tetris in the stands while his teammates were busting a gut on the field. You'd expect he got the message but he's no Brendan Goddard, my hunch is Hawthorn will be keen to make their list managers look good, hence the job security, but like I said, tough call, Geelong have a few to come back.

Not sold on Brayshaw, his DE isnt the greatest. His ceiling isnt high enough, has scored over 130 about about once. Probably priced about right.

Who has had the better pre season / fully fit of Sloane and M.Crouch?

depends on which Crouch and Kelly.

Id assume you mean Matt Crouch and Tim Kelly, if so id go them. Both of them are more likely to be keepers. If greene can bounce back from last year and average 90+, Macrae and Greene would easily win

You also need to think about captain's choices & the fact it's damn hard to trade up if you get the decision wrong. Let's face it, Gawn is the one player who could benefit immensely from the new ruck rules, I'd even have him ahead of Grundy at this stage.

Dusty (currently my M5) vs M.Crouch vs Zerrett

I've gone with Crouch but Dusty is still a sound selection, the deciding factor was their standard deviation, Dusty had 12 games under the ton last year which means he'll still be cheap down the track.

Crouch seems the safest bet, but I keep thinking how the new rules could benefit Dusty both when he plays mid because he is a clearance machine and when the ball is kicked forward to him in a one on one contest. Imagine Dusty being able to use his hands in the back in a one on one contest now to hold off his opponent, especially when the ball comes out of the centre bounce into an open forward line.

The other factor to consider is Caddy is still a long way off so Dusty may spend more time forward in the first month or so. Think it might be better to bring him in down the track.

IMO Lynch solves a lot of issues himself. No need for Dusty to spend as much time forward as he did last year. JRoo, Lynch, Edwards, Rioli, Butler, Higgins, Mav Weller, and even Balta down there. Easily enough to kick a winning score.
Don't get me wrong he'll play down there as it is a huge luxury but his minutes will be predominately midfield. JLT was the perfect example and Lynch wasn't even in. Did his best work around the ball.

Ok, so there are good arguments for both Dusty and M.Crouch. How about if you had the extra 20-30k to get Coniglio, do you think Conigs will outscore Dusty and M.Crouch?

Sorry, the three were all options. So I only need to downgrade one of Hurn, Cogs, or Robbo. So yes, I could do that, but I think Roberton's cash gen and scoring are both much better than Butters so I'm very hesitant.

Macrae & Butters  vs  Dusty & Walsh
I did have option 2 but am now leaning towards option 1 so that I don't have to trade as hard later to get Macrae into my side.
Macrae and butterss easily. Walsh should outscored butterss but both will make the same amount of cash in the end. Macrae will easily outscore dusty, but I don't see dusty as a top scorer meaning you will eventually have to trade him out in the long run anyhow.

I'm torn between neale vs coniglio

I know it's been discussed, but,

Sheed v BCrouch v Libba?

Sheed's past form reads putrid (last few games aside).
Crouch could be anything if he stays on the park?
Libba's knees?

All have definite rewards and definite risks associated. Struggling to use the extra cash by taking Libba over either of the other two.

Breakout v soft tissue v wonky knees?

Libba - if you can invest the extra coin to strengthen your team then get him, and he will make the most money out of the three you would think.

Sheed - isn't injury prone but will only be stepping stone and might not make enough cash.

B.Crouch - is the only one of the two that has a shot at being a keeper and top 10 mid but he is injury prone.

Greene is the biggest risk, but could also be the biggest reward, so I would go Oliver + Greene, and if Greene stuffs up, you can replace him with the best available rookie. The only caveat is if they are taking up your F3 position then you should go the safer Brayshaw + Billings option because if you have to replace Greene at that position there might not be any good rookies available.

Hard to say without seeing the rest of your team.

Option 1 gives you a keeper, so maybe option 1 for that reason. If B.Smith can become top 6 defender then option 2.

Well of course he is going to be optimistic and believe he can play 22, but that doesn't really mean much at the end of the day

Still, super hard choice because a fit Fyfe is close to if not the best player in the game. Has a nice bye too, and for that reason I am looking to bring him in straight after his bye

Whitfield has runs on the board and on the up. Could get thrown around the ground this season ie wing and forward. So not sure if this will impact his score.
Williams will av 20 possessions and hit targets across the backline. See him av 90.

Depends what you can do with the extra money. Whitfield will average more, but Williams is much better value and should be a keeper anyway.

Smith + Brouch or andrews + Libba
Andrews and Libba gives you a keeper and a cash cow. Smith and BCrouch more likely than not gives you zero keepers and probably the same cash made tbh.

Second option for me. We're picking Greene as an undervalued keeper, so 2 keepers vs 1

Top 10 is fine for DEF too, and I reckon they both land in that

Possibly not even top 10 is necessary. After the top few, the next lot will be clumped up pretty similar in scoring. Guys like Crisp, Hurn, Andrews, Witherden, Willians, Ryan etc should all be in that next tier. Who cares if you miss out on 1ppg.

Nope. Otherwise that's what I'd be doing.

Alternative option:
Oliver down to Brayshaw, Coniglio up to Macrae?

Or I just leave myself Round 14 heavy and upgrade to Macrae and Fyfe during the byes...

On one hand Fyfe has no preseason behind him but he can still come out and drop monster scores.

Had the same dilemma. Went with cogs. I just don't know where/how crouch improves on his 2016 average? He averaged like 30 odd disposals for the year? It's highly unlikely he goes much higher. His disposal % is still probably the same. Mostly handball... he isn't gonna kick much more goals.

Where as Conigs looks like he might go one step further increasing his all his raw numbers to become one of the best midfielders in the game if not the best.

That's how I see it anyhow

I'm running cogz at M3 and I reckon he will average 110+. In saying that I have mcrouch at m5 but would pick cogz over mcrouch.

I reckon Crisp has the potential to push 100+ if he cleans up his DE. (Got him at D1 atm)

I meant more that Laird playing the same role he’s always played gives me more confidence of expected output (even if he gets some points stolen) than Whits who may play a less SC friendly role for points he won’t be able to make up.

Good young player but don't trust his job security, or his scoring potential. Considering he's 20k MORE than Sam Walsh, who people were debating wasn't worth the price tag earlier in the pre-season, proves he's not worth it.

Will need to average nearly 80 to make 150k and I just can't see that happening based off two JLT games.

Neither keepers unless Moore over-performs..

As for cash generation, if Collins averages 70 until R12, he'll make about 150k. He could definitely score less though and then he'll make less, but he'll still be around 300k which is perfect for downgrading to a rookie mid-season.

If Moore averages 75 (my prediction) up to R12, he'll make 120k. But with his role he could easily average more.. Many have him scoring 80+.

I'd probably go Dusty & Smith. Dusty a premo, and smith has the potential for his scoring to increase.
Dusty and Smith seems much safer than two midpricers.
I like Withergoat and I had him in my team for a long time, however I'm just a little uncertain on him.

I disagree. Fyfe is a huge injury risk right now leading into Round 1 and, depending on how long it takes Caddy to come back (as well as Lynch probably missing this week), Dusty might play a lot of forward early on in the season. Neale and Cogs seems like a way better call. Cogs should improve again on last year with Shiel gone and Neale shouldn't go backwards at the Lions taking Beams's role.

I gave you an answer:
C.Mills + Smith vs Whitfield + Collins
Maybe be alone with this.
But Mills and Smith.

Here is some reasoning.
Mills should get more midfield minutes. Definitely should increase his average by several points.
Smith has been discussed and dissected in all four corners of the forums. I won't say anything that hasn't already been said.
However, that being said, I believe Smith and Mills will average the same, except Smith is obviously cheaper.
If you can afford, Whitfield + Smith would be the favourable option.

I will have 3 of them, you could start Brouch and Steele.
Also agree on Steele and BCrouch, Lyons will likely be in that 95-100 range, and whilst Sheed has put together some really good footy recently, I can't see him keeping that up for a whole season. Would rather spend less and go for Libba, or a touch more for Rocky.

This one I've been tossing up most of the pre-season. Started with Dunkley coz his end of season form in the mids was great, went to TK when I realised he may not continue that role whilst TK is a predominant mid. The one knock on TK is that he shares the bye with Heeney and Danger, but still not sure on Dunkley either...

If you can handle the byes then just go with Kelly. Neither of them will skyrocket in price so you can just wait and see what happens with Dunkley given he has more risk of not playing as much midfield as Kelly.

Dunkley vs. TKelly

This one I've been tossing up most of the pre-season. Started with Dunkley coz his end of season form in the mids was great, went to TK when I realised he may not continue that role whilst TK is a predominant mid. The one knock on TK is that he shares the bye with Heeney and Danger, but still not sure on Dunkley either...
If you can handle the byes then just go with Kelly. Neither of them will skyrocket in price so you can just wait and see what happens with Dunkley given he has more risk of not playing as much midfield as Kelly.

This is something I’m thinking really hard about. Sloane vs M.Crouch. I feel like Crouch will be much more consistent but he has a low ceiling and I’m not sure where improvement will come as he doesn’t score overly high even with plenty of disposals. Sloane on the other hand has a huge ceiling but can get tagged out of games. Should average similar. Thoughts?

Clearly Gawn outscores English, that's a given, but by more than Crisp and Hately outscore Collins and Atkins? And cash generation of the non-keepers to consider as well. Atkins js v Hately's?

I picked Mundy because I have more faith in a stable and reliable score and better bye. Kelly has higher ceiling on large scores and lower floor on lower scores. Kelly has more guns to share the pill and scoring with as well. I think they will both average around the same and won't be much in it.

My worry with Ridley is Gleeson coming back into the side.

Sloane and Collins vs M.Crouch and Scrimshaw
Sloane and Collins. Collins will play every week and has shown he can tonne up at Freo.

Clark (D6) + Scrimshaw (D7) + Bailey Smith (M7) vs. Duursma (D6) + Burgess (D7) + Cousins (M6, Walsh to M7)
Just giving this a bump, still stuck on it. $200 cost difference between the two.

I'm every so slightly leaning towards the second one with the difference being Scrimshaw's JS

I reckon Duursma and Clark are both ahead of Scrimshaw and Burgess in terms of JS and scoring ability. Especially Clark.

both hurn and crisp should average similarly, but id go probably go with Hurn.

i have gone with Ridley over Scrimshaw. At least if Ridley turns out to be a bad pick there are a quite a few players i can trade him to such as moore, isaac cumming, scrimshaw, cunningham etc.

Clarke is an option in those sides as he will likely get a game at some point and hopefully save me a donut. I rather Zorko over Neale in that case anyway so the extra cash on that move is probably moot.

Still not sold on Grundy as top rucks don't back it up. More I look at Crisp's scores I'm not sold with him either.

Basically in those teams Duursma/Scrim are D7 and Clarke is R3. All others are D1 through D3, R2 and R3 (Gawn locked) and M1 or M3/M4 (however you want to look at the pecking order if I downgrade Macrae)

I think you probably need a bit more than 5k in the bank so I'll say option 2. I do like Mills, don't like Libba, but I think you have more flexibility in that instance with the cash.

Need to pick 2 out of Burgess vs scrimshaw vs hore

Have moore up forward as well

If Moore was in defense I would have said Burgess. Forward rookies are weak and I don't think Burgess scores well. I'd probably lean towards locking in Scrimshaw and grabbing Hore.

Worpel vs. Daniel (Greene replacement if he doesn't get up)

I had Daniel and Boak swapping places all preseason before going with neither of them and getting an extra mid premium. Obviously not the right call with Greene and forward rookies... Because of that, I want to get at least one of them in this week.

For you, SL, I'd go Daniel. Watching today, his role is what I thought it might be when I was considering him and I can't see why he won't average 90.

For me, if I do go for one of Boak/Daniel, which should I get?

Mundy to Boak/T.Kelly is my decision at the moment too.

Kelly has shown he can match it with the star studded Geelong midfield.

Will Boak drop back to the 80's 90's when Wines returns? only averaged over 100 twice in his career.

Have 495k to burn (without using the 2nd trade)

Considering - Boak vs Worpedo vs Caleb Daniels

Daniels - not sure what JJs return will do to his scoring. Will definitely affect his scoring, so probably last on my list
Boak - same as above with Wines
Worpedo - great role, but is only a 2nd year player so can he keep it up for a season

Crisp all day.
Never left my team all preseason, is basically a 100k cheaper Lloyd with the benefit of being a POD.
His only flaw is his ball use, sometimes leaves a lot to be desired, but he has a great floor (as do all Collingwood players)

Whitfield v T Kelly?

Can't go wrong with either, so what I usually do is pick the one that suits my byes.

would you bring Rocky or Libba in if you had a hole to fill this week. I could turn Ridley into one of these, with a little DPP'ing.

Cheers, I’ll probably have both before the byes (hopefully)!

I’ve got Rocky but would pick Libba tbh. Same injury risk, but Libba’s role is set in stone. Rocky has Wines to come back, and although I don’t think it will kill him it brings some uncertainty.

Libba won’t get tagged, Rocky does, and the extra 105k wouldn’t go astray...
Title: Re: Player X vs Player Y - 2019
Post by: justaverage on April 01, 2019, 06:13:42 PM
Libba or LDU

Pretty confident Libba will average around the 100 mark and would still need an upgrade down the track, but should steadily rise in price.

LDU scoring unknown but seems to be tracking nicely, has a great BE and will make the dollars. The big factor here being the $100k left over for first upgrade in a few weeks time.

Rockliff and 210k or Fyfe

Obviously Fyfe the better player and will average 10+ a game more but Rockliff has looked super impressive in the two games so far.

400k for someone that can potentially get you a 105 average is really tempting

Please someone talk me out of getting him

Rocky may cop a hard run with role from Robbo this week given his start to the season, We seen how he slowed when run with started last week so be wary.

Mundy gone, was choosing between him and Boak pre-season so leaning to Boak but....

Mundy to Boak or T Kelly?
Boak only because he's cheaper and had the better bye.



Worpel vs. Daniel (Greene replacement if he doesn't get up)

I had Daniel and Boak swapping places all preseason before going with neither of them and getting an extra mid premium. Obviously not the right call with Greene and forward rookies... Because of that, I want to get at least one of them in this week.

For you, SL, I'd go Daniel. Watching today, his role is what I thought it might be when I was considering him and I can't see why he won't average 90.

For me, if I do go for one of Boak/Daniel, which should I get?
Tough one, I'd probably go Daniel, cheaper and not sure the effect that Wines coming back will have on Boak.

Asked a million times but Boak v Kelly. I’m leaning kelly because he’s shown he can do it in a full strength Geelong, but how does he cope with the tag? As for boak there’s the wines question not that I think wines will have a huge effect, but how big will that effect be.
Can even throw Warpel into the mix, locked into hawks midfield and if he averages 95 an absolute steal at the price

Tough one but Boak has shown he can hit 100 (with Wines in the side), Kelly has only delivered one season at 93, Boak is also cheaper & has a smaller BE. Then there's the ownership 15% (Kelly) vs 3% (Boak).

Still option A, unless you have a plan in place for the extra 100k option B will get you. More money to be made off Parker and Macrae a captains option also.

Oh. I still like option A. Like someone else typed Macrae is a C option. In fact if I had him it would def be Danger into Macrae this week + Parker looks set to make good money. I reckon he might enjoy the hard expanses of Optus for another 70+ against Freo hopefully.

Again it depends on structure and what rookies are fielded.
Can LDU keep up the scoring? If so option 1 could be better in terms of both cash gen and scoring.
On the other hand he could drop off, and option 2 nets u more points, with maybe slightly less cash gen(depending on Rozee)

I think Neale will beast it this year, and will be harder to get in than Whitfield down the track. So option 2 for me, just.

Exact two rookies as named. Rozee fills D4, Neale M3 or Whitfield D1, LDU M7

I agree with you 100%. Rozee probably not as safe but a 68 and 85 is still good scoring for a rookie and Neale outscores Whitfield by 10ppg+

Comes down to what LDU produces. I think he's primed and has a depleted Hawks midfield to play against this week. The 118 will be huge in his rolling average.

Other option I could do and follow the pack

Newman + Rockliff over other 2 options.

Whitfield is better than Crisp imo. They got smashed last week with Hutchings tagging Cogs over Whitfield (something I never thought would happen) and Whitfield scored 123. They now play the Tigers this week (the team that let Crisp score so much) at home. Whitfield will keep going big and won't get tagged going forward. Reckon he'll compete with Lloyd for best defender by year's end.

tks think i might chase the cash and get butters.   ldu also may be affected by ahern coming in.

Tough one but from a points perspective I reckon lets say Scrim can get closer to Lloyd than lets say Scott can get to Neale. Although, the more you look/think about it maybe Lloyd cos he is easily top 3 DEF where as maybe as much as a dozen MIDs can ave what Neale goes in the long run. I'm calling it a coin flip. No help at all lol.

I can't see your team, but there looks to be more quality rookie options in mid than defence, and Stack coming through next week as well, so I would make the "structural" move and get Lloyd and pocket some cash. Neale might outscore him but it won't be by much you would think, although he is at the moment on a small sample size.

Neither for mine. JJ comes in (not saying Daniel is a bad pick, just saving trades & Marshall, actually he is running amok BUT you are taking a massive risk vs. Longer).

Wait to see who is named, but Neale has a low BE and would be the one to get. Gibbons is the worst out of those rookies too.

If I was looking at the two players in isolation without any consideration regarding price, how much cash I have, etc. then I would pick Macrae, but not by a big margin.

Reckon Sheed is spending more time FWD now, maybe because Gaff's back. Think Sheed's like Dunkley, good at their Fwd craft, so their coach plays them there more often. So I would go Brouch the Mid. And I would go Dahl, appears to be loven life at the cats.

BE is negative this week but won't be next week, reckon Walsh hits 450k & then stagnates. If he tons up this week then different story but I'm fully prepared to move him on if he scores around 70-80.

I took Worpel for Heeney a couple of weeks ago (yeah, I know!) Sort of wish I went Marshall. Looks good and can’t see Longer coming back. Bad form in the twos, plus Marshall going well.

Same dilemma.

Greene to ROB, Butters to Hore via Duursma, play Parker and Petrol on field until Setters is back.

Or

Greene to Marshall, Parker to ROB, Miss Hore and still play Petrol until Setters is back.

I’ve done a heap of homework on these 3 and still can’t split them! But if Kelly is the 4th option you’re considering, I’d go him easily.

I’m personally very conscious of these early season bolters who crash back down to earth. Kelly has a settled role, and I feel like he’s most likely to keep it up.

Cheers for the advice guys. Just had a look at rankings as well, and surprisingly none of the top 7 teams have Kelly, so even in a search for a POD he might be the one this round still. This could be a good round to close the gap, as team 1 is missing Gawn, and has Merret as well, who was quieter than normal

Thinking one this week, one next anyway. To be honest, Simmo hasn't looked bad at all. Newman has been stealing some of his kick-ins and without being able to play a loose as often with the 6-6-6 we can't manufacture him behind the ball as easily. I do think the back 6 are settling in nicely now.

They legit both have the same BE (79), one is just 70k cheaper and both don't have great scoring history against the other team. I'm likely to take your advice because that's where my gut is going for this week as well. No Jed Lamb to make Sicily agro and not concentrate on the ball.

T.Kelly imo.

You know what you are going to get with him every week as he is one of Geelongs main mids.

Daniel could have a role change like others have stated.

I think he's more referring to the value of those listed, over the top dollar price of Lloyd and Boak.

I think it depends on if you're going for league or overall. I wouldn't get either of them right now if chasing overall and having ground to make up because they teams ahead of you already have them (and got them cheaper). However, if you're just trying to win league matches or you're already near the top of overall, they make the most sense.

I only care about overall and my team has sucked to start the year so I'm going PODs as an all or nothing approach. For me, it makes no sense to get Lloyd or Boak until they're at their cheapest. I should've gone Daniel last week but went Walters for the really big POD and it looks poor after one week... Tempted by Rich this week but might just get Laird as the top teams typically went Lloyd and Whitfield over Laird.

Yep tough decision. Both appear the best trade in targets for their position this week along with Laird in DEF. My decision was between Laird & Telly & I have gone with Telly at this stage because it better suits my 22 so I suppose it may come down to how many  spuddish rooks you have on field & where best to turf one.

Well it comes down to this. Schrimshaw would have to go for Answerth to bring in Fyfe and Atkins would have to go for T Kelly.
Cousins is going regardless as the other trade.

Team is

Whitfield, Smith, Williams, Laird, Duursma, Hore ( Schrimshaw, Burgess )
Cripps, Neale, Oliver, Coniglio, Sheed, Walsh, Constable, Ross ( Cousins, Atkins, Scott )
Gawn, Grundy, ( ROB )
Danger, Heeney, Boak, Moore, Rooze, Drew ( Pettretuelle, Bines )
Title: Re: Player X vs Player Y - 2019
Post by: HappyDEZ on May 01, 2019, 01:04:28 PM
Front 6 looks decent so I reckon Fyfe. Also gives decent cover on the bench if Conigs doesn't get up or even maybe a Ross/Cons loophole if Cogs plays & Scott doesn't come back in. I would consider looping Rozee or Drew (probs Rozee) too only because Ports have Coll away & Petrol has GC at home.

Laird v Rich

Ok fanfooty family. Please here me out here.

Rich is the perrenial burner of all coaches out there.

With the new kick in rules, he is the designated taker for Lions and has a license to attack where he can.
6 rounds through and he is averaging a strong 98. Worst game so far is a 76 v essendon. He is currently $50k cheeper to Laird and in the world of SC at this time of year, i could get a Boak in next week if i go down the Rich path.

Dont need to build a case for Laird. He is back jn form now and wigh Mileara out he will hit his 100s.

What are your thought...? Do you think with the rules and the Lions style of play is Rich's 98 ave sustainable?

Only 5% hold Rich as well. Is it too much of a chance maybe...should i just stick to the players we kmow will get us points ie Laird and look to bring in Rich late at the highrr premium??

If Rich gets you Boak then that is significant upside over laird.   Milera may be back in 4 weeks and laird goes back to low 90s again and you sacrificed opportunity for Boak.    Rich/Boak has more going for it.

I really need to make a defensive downgrade this week, just with my plan for the next fortnight:

Answerth vs Young vs Joyce vs Lockhart?
As of right now there is no correct answer.

- Answerth big Q marks because of the injured Lions waiting in the wings
- Young low scoring and although playing fine you can't trust Bevo.
- Joyce very low JS, could stick around but could be out in a week.
- Lockhart honestly should've been dropped already which means maybe they like him a lot, but I have him and I wish I didn't so I wouldn't bring him in.

If I had to pick one it'd be Answerth but I just simply wouldn't. I would kill for a defensive downgrade this week but with these options I just don't want to risk it.

Burgess, Scott, Setterfield, Balta on my bench are killing me, don't want another one.

Dunkley
Even with the game of shuffleboard that Bevo plays? Not long ago people were trying to figure out how to get rid of these two guys - what do we think has changed?

Nothing, he switched roles with libba had a good week and libba had a bad one, can't count on them playing the same role each week and scores will be all over the place because of it.

I wouldn't touch either tbh. Dunkley of the two though.

Boak, Danger, Heeney, Daniel, T.Kelly, Cameron, Mundy all comfortably ahead and Walters, Hawkins and Billings all a little ahead of them both for me.

fyfe v bont

both have the same bye.

I am leaning towards bont.

thoughts?
Can't go wrong with either. History suggests Bonts more durable, so I'd go him.

Weighing up the same decision. Only leaning towards Fyfe because I already have McRae and Libba in my midfield but it looks like Libba has to go anyway

Macrae, Zerrett, Coliver, Bont   Ollie hopefully is over his funk and back to beast mode.  Bont has raised his floor from last year and therefore can be expected to improve at 10pts this year.

Disagree. Would be shocked if Sloane avgs more than Oliver for the rest of the year. Sloane can only play on one deck, and if they decide to tag he's done for.

Oliver is a Supercoach god who has been criminally underscoring due to an uncharacteristic inefficiency. He's cheaper than you'll ever get him and will definitely be a top-8 midfielder.

I could bite the bullet and get Neale, as originally planned. I was just looking for value, so I could save cash for a possible ROK/Boak trade in the near future. Already have Fyfe and Macrae. Zerrett expensive.
Even contemplated Zorko @sub 500k but I have taken enough risks on cheap players already. Worpel, Bcrouch, Bsmith, Williams and Marshall. Not to mention an underperforming Cogs.

Still fielding three rookies. It’s been that type of year....

I have a lot of dead weight... trade out two of the following:

Cogs, Brayshaw, Walsh, Witherden, Moore, Heeney, Greene...

I have $136,700 in the bank so probably can't get two premiums unless I trade two of the first three. Was thinking something like:
Cogs and Walsh/Brayshaw to Bachar and Macrae. Will scrap all that and go Petrucelle/Duursma/Drew to Hately as one of the trades if named.

$257,900 in the kitty.

B - Whitfield, Lloyd, Williams, Smith, Moore, Hore (Hinge, Burgess)

M - Neale, Cripps, Macrae, Oliver, T.Kelly, Heeney, Walsh, Duursma

R - Grundy, Gawn (Bines)

F - Boak, Dunkley, Dangerfield, Marshall, Baker, Balta (Corbett, Drew)

Just saw your team and with Moore and Williams out, go Moore to Hurn. Will give you the top 3 def premos atm. Hoping Drew is in to cover Danger if he's out, or Corbett at worst which is still ok.

Yeah I think Hurn is the best fit for my team, he was my original choice.

He just makes the backline more solid with Williams missing for a week or 2.

Who to trade out? Clark, Hayes or Gibbons?
Trading for Hinge.

Current def rookies are Duursma, Lockhart and Clark (Williams on bench).

Current Mid rookies are Walsh, Gibbons, Answerth, Scott and Hayes. Yuk!

I’m leaning on swinging Duursma into mids and trading Hayes or Gibbons. Gibbons makes more cash, but at least he’s playing every week. Trading Hayes only nets me 80k, but can I afford to have two non playing rookies in my mids? Probably not.

Cameron vs Lobb vs SEdwards???

I was thinking Lobb - he is a bit erratic and is up against Gawn in Rd 14 - after that no real ruckmen of note that i can see
He is getting points round the ground too with his marking
Only in 5% of teams and averaging 90.9 for the season and 109.3 for the past 3 games

there is also Shane Edwards as a POD
Good price, low BE, works for my byes but possibly not a keeper so would be wasting a trade

I added Cameron to my list of possibles - starting to do JKK type work up and down the ground - really working hard, tank is growing with Kelly back for GWS (his delivery is superb) I reckon the scores goalwise will start to roll

Thoughts???

Any thoughts

Whichever suits you bye structure best Neale with Rd 13 and Kelly with Rd 14. Not a lot of difference scoring wise but Neale may drop a little with the high B/e, Kelly playing the Suns may go big so factor that one in as well andany svcore above 108 will see his price rise.

+1 for Marshall. Should be more consistent.

Wilkie to Cunnington
Or
Hore to Josh Kelly

Won’t know if Hore is named till after Cunnington plays. He could then be a late out anyway, who knows.
I’d have 18 if I traded Hore, 19 if I keep him.
Whichever one I keep this week will most likely be traded to Bewley next week anyway.

Really keen on Kelly but Cunnington could possibly match him for the rest of the season anyway.
Doing my head in so any help would be appreciated.

Yeah that's something I've thought about. Spending the extra 100k and then having him get injured. The interview the other day didn't really make it any easier. Saying they are managing his load. Cunnington may be durable but his scoring history is no where near Kelly's.

Hmmm, I'm not an advocate of having a rookie at M8 so I'd be inclined to take option 2, but in saying that you would need to stipulate the cheapies you are chasing. The guys I have on the shortlist are Bont, Sloane, Mundy (in 2 weeks), Gray & Sicily. If you grab 3 of those guys I think you win in the short run.

Thanks for the replies.  I've tried to pick the best combo of options and it would look something like this:

Milera, Blakely, Sicily | Neale, Steele (in my team) | Gray + 1 extra trade
vs
Milera, Stewart/Laird, Sicily | Bont, Steele (in my team) | Gray + 1 extra trade
vs
Stewart/Laird, Lloyd, Sicily | Neale, Baker/Clarke | Marshall +50k

Which I have at
90 + 90 + 125+ 95 + 90 = 490
vs
90 + 100 + 115+ 95 + 90 = 490
vs
100 + 115 + 125 + 75+ 100 = 515

25ppg difference but at the cost of an extra trade.

Milera playing forward so I'd be careful with that selection, option 3 looks the best with the guys you have listed. I woudn't be banking on 75 from the rookies either, more like 60-65.

Andrews for me, have been super impressed with his form lately.

Blakely is the other guy you should strongly consider, in fact I'd have him above all those guys mentioned.

Just to recap why I'm bullish, last time he was playing exclusively midfield he averaged 89 but that included an injury affected 7 & 13, he also had a stretch of 10 out of 11 scores over 98. Think at 455k he's a worthy bet.

Thanks mate, I was thinking Andrews the only benefit I was thinking was Wellers bye helps my structure.

I was looking at blakey - need a player this week for whitfield though. Might see how he goes next week and potentially fill my last def spot with him.
then upgrade one of Andrew's, blakey, b.smith later in the season to hurn, whitfield if the luxury trade is there

I'd pick andrews out of the two, cant see crisp averaging enough. Beams being out wont make much significant difference as sier will be replacing him. Otherwise id strongly consider blakely or get enough money for a defender over 500k who will more likely be more reliable.

All this talk really helped me - I made a key breakthrough with my thinking.  Instead of having a rookie M8 I'm way better having a rookie D6 as they'll be a placeholder for Whitfield.  And who better than Naish (if his first 10 minutes is anything to go by)

So it'll be:

Lloyd (115), Naish/Hinge/Gardner/Burgess (65),  Neale (125), Treloar (110), Marshall (100) = 515 but key difference to my other trades is that I have a placeholder for Whitfield and I also have Clarke's cash generation at M9 to fund it.

It’s tricky, because keeping Hore would most likely leave me one short this week, and can’t really afford that. Would love to keep him though.

I’ve now only got BSmith to upgrade, although he is quite the liability. Hoping he can hold tight until Whitfield returns.

Danger, Kelly, Boak, Dunkley, Marshall, Cameron (???, Young)

what about a m/f like Lipinski ? Good JS with Libba out.  Don't reckon you'll need ruck coverage. everbody in the same boat if one sinks.

Yeah, had a sneaky look at him... In a couple of weeks should be able to go Baker and Bewley to 102k m/f and Menegola though with the cash in hand. Might have more upside? Just need the rooks to hold their spots!

If Dixon is named it might be good news for the Hoff and his role too...

I'm probably going to have to choose between Dylan Clarke this week or Hind next week. Anyone got any insight into this one?  :-\

Clarke is the type who could feasibly hold down M9 for the rest of the year, he would be my pick despite the extra $$.

I have a path to a complete team which isn't affected by the cash I could save to Hind. So if Clarke is the better pick and has some security, I'll go with him. Cheers mate

Clayton Oliver vs Zac Merrett Vs Bont Vs Sloane?
Have one mid position left to upgrade

Btw I Already have Macrae (Mid) and Dunks (fwd)
And already have M.Crouch and B.Crouch in my mids

Should that steer me away from Bont and Sloane?

Thanks lads

Too risky to hold that many Crow mids, Oliver probably the best bet as he's tough to tag, think only De Boer has gotten the better of him this year.

Boak vs. Dunkley for last forward spot. Price may end up being a factor when I try to upgrade to Hurn down back in two weeks.

I think Dunkley coz of his latest form. With Libba out, can't see why not he can't keep it going. Would like Dunkley myself, but could use a luxury trade later on and move on Heeney as I have a full forward line, but not now.

Bont v Dunkley

The extra 60k from bont could be very useful

I'm struggling with this one too and am leaning towards Stewart because Sicily sometimes being asked to play forward.
