The Friday Scramble

The Friday Scramble: Round 7

Suspensions, Injuries and Omissions seem to be the flavour of the week. I also give a real quick review of AFL Evolution. So jump in and get scrambling in this bumper edition for round 7!

Wow, what a week.  Remember last week when I said, we won’t have great weeks like that all the time, well I didn’t think it would all turn around so bloody fast!  But hey, that is the game isn’t it.  It can be a cruel game at times.  So not only did we have to put up with some very mediocre scores from our so called Premiums, but we then lose a few to suspension, injury and just bloody omissions!

Well don’t stress, the good thing is that everyone is in the same boat, it may be leaking profusely, but it is a boat!  So let’s deal with some of the issues of the round.

Nank and Greeney

Whether you think they were dealt with harshly or too softly doesn’t matter, the MRP made their decision and we have lost these boys for one and two weeks respectively.  I will deal with them separately for you here and give my thoughts on what I would do if I had them.  For the record, I don’t have Greene but I do have Nank in the Forward Line.

Greene.  In AF there is one simple answer and that is trade.  With all those trades you may as well do it.  It is a lot of cash to have sitting idle.  Now I won’t go into who you should bring in as you all have different players and different amounts of cash in the bank.  All I say is you are trading out a keeper so you should be looking to bring in a keeper and not a mid-pricer and definitely not a rookie.
In RDT and SC this is where it gets a bit trickier.  2 weeks is generally where we would say hold for an injury.  In this case we know he isn’t injured and he will be back fighting (no pun intended) fit after two weeks off.  So it comes down to the sort of cover that you have.  If you will have a donut then I would trade, but if you can replace him with a rookie that is performing fairly well like a Balic or Houston then I would say hold him.  Once again, if you trade it has to be to a keeper.

Nank.  In AF, if you have him in the ruck and have no playing cover (since Preuss and Cameron haven’t come in) then I think you have to trade to get to a premium like a Stef, Grundy or Jacobs.  But if you can’t do that I wouldn’t be overly keen to go to a Witts or a McEvoy type.  You don’t want to have to trade again to get rid of a ruck that you don’t want to carry to the end.  In AF yo can afford to go to one of these rucks as you have heaps of trades to use up.  I would be looking for one that is playing, should get you a 60+ and hopefully has a low BE so they won’t lose any cash.  If you have him up Forward then just stash him on the bench and fix up other problems that you have.
In RDT and SC once again I would be holding him.  The only reason you would trade is if you can get him to Stef or Grundy and that was your plan all along.  If you have him in the ruck and can’t get to a premo and can only get to someone that is going to score around the 50-65 mark then you may want to just hold him and eat the donut.  Certainly not my preferred option but is it worth trading to a player that is not going anywhere and you have to just trade out anyway?  It effectively burns two trades, one to get Nank out and then one to get the other player out.  Not ideal.
If you have him up forward in those formats then put him on the bench and play one of the forward rookies that is playing.

Of course with Beams out for a couple of weeks too, and if you have all three of these guys then Nank should be held and deal with the other issues.

 

Beamer?

I think we all feared that this might happen.  We know he is a bit injury prone, that is how we came to get him so cheap at the start of this season.  He has been good this year averaging 104 and has only been under 100 on two occasions.  His last score was a 68 so in RDT it will take a couple of weeks for that to flush out of his price movements.  I don’t know about AF, but it will be a factor.  So he is going to lose value when he returns.  The reports say that he is out for at least two weeks.  Now the report I read used those exact words “at least” which is a worry for me.  That doesn’t mean he is back in three, it means he won’t be back before two but it could be longer.

In AF I will be trading him out this week. It is the smart play in that form of the game, and hopefully you have some cash to get him to a premium.  If not in the mids you may be able to use some DPP to get a player up forward or down back as the premo’s there tend to be a little cheaper.

In RDT and SC I am seriously considering trading him also, I know we say two weeks for injuries means hold, but I just don’t know about this one.  If he was rarely injured I would have no issues holding, but given he is prone to them I am worried that this may be longer than first thought or he could be in and out all year.  But hey, I was wrong with Volt so who says I know anything about this one!

I did select him thinking I would keep him all year and that is why the decision to trade him will be a tough one.  This trade really comes down to circumstances for your side.  I can 100% understand coaches that go either way on this one.

Selection Table

My thoughts on selection this week was bloody hell, thanks for that!  But mostly in relation to Draft teams, Classic teams weren’t heavily affected at the top end, but there were a few rookie issues.

Great to see Coniglio back in for the Giants, that will help some draft sides, so will Travis Boak being back for the Power.  Was lucky enough to meet him and Robbie Gray as they came out to our local club on Monday night to take some training for the junior teams.  But as I scroll down one that hurts a lot of us is Zac Fisher having a hamstring issue and being out.  He is listed at only one week, so that isn’t too bad and I would definitely be holding him as he has more cash to make for us.

The Suns have hurt some of our rookie chances with Jack Bowes and Brayden Fiorini (although he isn’t really a rookie but is in draft teams) being omitted.  not rested, but Omitted.  In that same game we have mixed fortunes for the Cats.  Stewart and Parfitt are both out and one (Parfitt) on the LTI now with that Hammy.  But, we do see that Menegola has been dropped and Parsons has come straight back in after missing because of that elbow that hit Hodgey.  This says a lot to me, the fact he came straight back in impresses me and he impressed me in that game against the Hawks.  I see him as a really good trade down target thsi week and if you don’t have any of the issues above to deal with then I would be looking to bring him in.

The axe swang at the Swans!  None of those out were really all that fantasy relevant, but the ins were.  Oliver Florent comes back in which will help those that hung on to him and some may have Naismith as cover in the rucks in a draft league.

Big shout out to Coach Patch, Damon in the DT Shiva who finally got some joy from Cutler but he is out with a Hammy so that will please him no end!  Importantly in that game Barrett returns to help us out by earning some more cash.  Speaking of earning cash.  In AF you should be looking at Myers who comes in this week.

Lots of Resting at the Bombers, with McGrath and Jobe being rested.  If you have Jobe I say trade, he hasn’t been at his best, but if you can hold McGrath then I say do it, he is going ok and has cash to make.

It’s an Evolution

Sorry folks, had to take a quick break from writing the scramble there and have a try of AFL Evolution which I picked up tonight.  It is pretty good.  The controls will take some getting used to and it is a bit tough at first.  But in the second game that I played both Josh and myself got the hang of it and had a decent match.  The graphics are pretty good with most players I saw bearing a pretty good resemblance to their real life counterparts.  Love the Dennis Commetti commentary and the ovals look pretty good too.  Given how hard it is to get everything AFL into a game I reckon they have done a pretty good job of it and I am sure I will get better as I play more games.  However, if the real game was umpired like this one, there would be a heap of free kicks, reckon we had about 30 holding the ball decisions in our games which had 2 and a half minute quarters!  Some commentary from the Ump mics and also some grunting sound effects when the players take a big tackle!  Anyway… back to scrambling….

#AskDunny

Firstly Ben we need to do something about that profile pic, not enough Black White and Teal there… ha ha.  Anyway your question, I think Hampton will have a good game against the Kangaroos at Blundstone Arena, whereas I am not so sure Taranto will have it easy against the Saints.  So for Matchup alone I say Hampton.  I think the Crows will smash the Roos and there should be plenty of ball for him.

 

G’day Shags, get around Shags folks, he does a great job releasing the teams for us on a Thursday night on DTTalk.   Mate I am not very keen to pay that much for someone at this stage of the season.  If I am getting a cash cow in they have to be well under $200k.  With a 70 and 61 you would be giving away points on the field if you are playing him and conversely I think you can spend that cash better elsewhere rather than having it sit tight on the bench.  So for me it would be a no.

https://twitter.com/callumreader6/status/860071604025344001

I think Myers probably has the better Job Security.  So in AF I would be taking Myers, but in RDT or SC I am taking Parsons, only because he is on the bubble and you can get Myers in a couple of weeks when you may be looking for a downgrade target.  Also consider your bye strategy too when picking one up.

As I said above, in the limited trade forms of the game, taking a Nank donut may be a reasonable long term strategy if you have other issues to deal with or you can’t really get any quality by trading him out.  So it isn’t the worst thing, but I do hate a donut on my field.

https://twitter.com/joshpimm/status/860069892707336192

Newman against the Lions at home every day of the week there.

One more from Shags here to finish us off because I liked this question a lot.  I have no issues holding Beamer for two weeks as you may want to be culling cows at this stage.  So holding him is a strategy.  My major concern with him is that it may not be just two weeks.  But if you are confident he will be back and firing in two weeks then I say it is a good strategy to hold him (assuming you have good bench cover of course).

Things To Remember

  • Just because last week was terrible doesn’t mean this week will!  (I keep telling myself that).
  • Be Careful of the knee jerk trades.  As I said, most people had bad weeks last week.  I even heard of people looking to trade out Dangerfield.  Everyone is entitled to a bad week once in a while.
  • Byes Byes Byes.  They are now even closer.  So just make sure you are now taking them into account in every trade that you are making.

There you have it folks, it was going to be a short one but we ended up with a bumper edition of the Scramble today.  There is a lot to think about with trades this week and it isn’t an easy week to negotiate with suspensions and injuries.  Just make sure you are not trading to someone else you have to trade out again unless they are a cash cow.  Don’t side swap mid pricers.  Have a great week everyone and see you next Friday!  Cheers @pkd73

      Roberton looking like a top 6 back. heeney could well be a top 6 forward.

      I am an Essendon supporter. I am not convinced on Myers job security and want to see him perform first.
      It won’t be too late to get him next week if he performs well, and retains his spot.

      I actually traded him in a few weeks ago as a cash grab for Gawn, as I had Nank to swing into RUC. At the time it was suggested he may get a game at some stage so very happy he is this week as it lets me bench Nank and deal with the Beams trade.

      I’m not doing it, but I can see the logic in it.

      I’m trading Nankervis out, because I have extra money for a probable top 2 ruckman.

      People who hold Nankervis ( and bring in Soldo) would likely be working on the theory that if Nankervis is out again at some stage, that they will have cover in Soldo.

      Re Roberton, he has been given a role at sk kilda that optimises his fantasy output. Apart from being a possession accumulator, he takes marks (intercept and contested) and he is the go to rebound player and has licence to roam with effect (note his 2 goals last weekend).
      After Docherty, Laird and Adams, imo, he is the D4 target (ahead of simpson, lloyd and shaw)
      Real deal.

    Procrastination is the worst enemy at the moment:

    Nank+Beams- Mumford+Steven
    Nank+Beams-Jacobs+R.Gray

    Leaning towards 2 but Jacobs plays Goldy and struggles a bit. R Gray role is more forward dominant.
    Mumford is usually good for 85-105. Steven has a high ceiling.

      R Gray has a bye in 2 weeks. Perhaps after that. Been inconsistent this year. I don’t think his scores have been that high for the amount of goals he has kicked.

      He is not in my top 6 forwards at present.

      Either is a good option.

      I have a very slight preference for Yeo.

      He has a better bye round and higher ceiling. Also plays more midfield.

      I feel Lynch might be slightly more consistent, in a high scoring team.

      Yeo is developing vastly different averages between home and away games (much like his team).

    Danger, Gibbs, Titch, Sidey, Murphy, Oliver, Fyfe, Beams (Balic, Miles)
    Witts, Martin (preuss, Surman)
    Dahlhaus, ANB, Houston, Nank, WHE, black (butler, poison)
    Have 143k.

    Thinking of trading beams/ANB keeping Nank?
    Maybe get Sloane/rocky/zerret and heeney.
    Thanks

      Difficult decision, I have got no definitive answer.

      How are your byes looking?

      Heeney looks good. Sloane Rockliff and Z Merret definitely top 8 mids.

      I have ANB but have other problems this week (and can cover if he is dropped).

      Houston and Butler near the end of line too.

    Trying to decide who to trade out of Watson and Roughy? The other will go next week. Will Roughy reach his BE?

      Get rid of Roughy as long as you have cover for Watson. Jobe cant drop in price this week due to not playing but Roughy can.

      Depends what your trades are and who you would be fielding if you traded Roughead this week.

      Average and break even are the same (71), although he has been under that the past 3rounds.

      probs roughy if you have decent bench coverage for watson, i think he’ll score “well” again after a weeks rest

      Personally wouldn’t want either at the end of season tho

    My advice is to avoid Soldo. I also previously advised against taking Spencer.

      Yeah… Spencer was fine until he got injured. Soldo isn’t even first ruck, and will probably only play one week. Only reason people are getting him is to avoid a donut and for a quick preuss cash grab :)

      Lol what? You saw the shoulder injury coming then did ya. Spencer was a fine pick, he would have avereged 75 and gone up 100k or so.

    Can’t decide between Grundy and Jacobs… Cox hasn’t been dropped (somehow) so maybe I should just go Jacobs..

    • Avatar

      Guy Incognito

      May 5, 2017 at 2:38 pm

      Jacobs will average 95ish or so, Grundy will average 90ish with Cox and 110 without… Both have a pretty tough upcoming run, slight edge to Grundy there.

      I would go Grundy for potential, if Cox doesn’t play again after this week you will kick yourself, if he plays every week it may cost you a few points.

      Many others seem to think Jacobs though – it could go either way.

      Assuming you need 1 back and 1 mid…
      Think Doch and Myers is safer – Williamson could stink it up plus that 198k can be put to good use with Titch next week or Treloar/Danger/Swans mids value picks if you need another mid premo.

      Roberton.

      Simpson likely to get the odd rest.

      Roberton also scoring more, and more consistently at present.

      If you think Heeney is a must have get him this week – he will be going up more than Rocky and Merrett…
      If Heeney goes 110 he will still be sub 500k and very affordable however in which case depending on the abundance of your cash cows Rocky and Merrett this week and Heeney next.
      Personally I would go for Rocky/Merrett – proven whereas only have 1 good game from Heeney.
