On your bike – Ep. 137

The bye rounds are in the rear vision mirror, but the road ahead isn’t clear.

The most traded in player last week will be the most traded out for round 14 as Geelong’s Scott Selwood’s hamstring injury sees him ruled out of Sunday’s game against Fremantle. Up until the third quarter last Thursday night, “Scooter” was putting his hand up as the best mid-season mid-priced pick up of the year.

On Saturday night, Michael Barlow broke his left fibula and the subsequent surgery will mean he has played his last game of the year.

The injured duo have been popular Fantasy selections in recent weeks and they headline the big issues on the Official AFL Fantasy Podcast with The Traders.

Roy, Calvin and Warnie discuss the best options to bring in for the run home.

  • Story of my sad year continues – bought in Barlow gets injured. Broke the bank to get Rocky in 2 weeks ago instead of Zorko or Docherty – too scared to do the sums of what that has cost me in points and dollars. At least I bought Scott Selwood in when he played his first game but still hurts he is now out for 2/3 weeks. At my current rate my team will be complete this time next season :(

  • Is scooter really a must trade? Can hold for a week and there’s an afl website story where he says it’s a low grade injury.

    • Selwood out to 1-3 weeks, move on.

    • They’ll get him straight back in asap. There’s no coincidence that their form spiked when he got in the team finally. He’ll have big responsibility in the guts. Upgrade around him, it’s a waste of a trade otherwise. Unless you’re in the top 100 and you need to make every dollar work for you every week I guess.

    • im keeping scooter SPP get 70s until he returns then downgrade SPP

  • Did great during byes but…have Barlow, Polec, Scooter, Zac Jones (susp). Whispers that Rocky groin, Jake Barrett mystery injury even Nankervis has a niggle – Oy Vey

    • It’s just a part of the game. For me, Scooter is injury-prone- we knew that when we bought him in, and Rule 24: be careful when to bring Rocky back in. Barlow, Barrett, and Nankervis? is just a shit, and simply bad luck.

  • Spot on Calvin the for and against tables for the last three weeks show GC as giving up 0 120 scores. So Who has stuffed up? and does this mean the tables are all out?. Bad stats could hurt some coaches that rely on them.

  • So now the tables for last 3 weeks has changed and 5 teams with 0 120s scored against them has changed to 1 team, however there have been no changes to the season table to reflect this. Could somebody in charge (with responsibility) please confirm the validity of the tables. Thanks in advance.

  • Lloyd and Sheed +233k
    Or
    Grundy and Treloar +2k

    • Lloyd and Sheed!

    • A lot of people keep mentioning Sheed. Am I missing something here? He’s had a good spell over the last three weeks, but he’s not cheap. It could be better to go with a premium.
      Grundy has been good, and Lloyd always puts up a good score, (unless he gets himself knocked out). Treloar is very talented, though I’ve been a little disappointed with his progress this year.

  • Great pod cast gents.Does anyone one know why Roo has a band-aid?Just checked my team this morning and can’t find any info on it. I assume the app is just programmed to place one there every second week
