The Friday Scramble

The Friday Scramble: Round 8

Don’t look too soon, we could have another low scoring round on our hands with some guns missing this week!

Bit of a horror week in round 7 for coaches but if you managed to dodge a few of the bullets then you could have rocketed up the rankings! If you had a poor week don’t stress as everyone has a down week sometimes. All we can do is look forward and tackle this week as it comes (and looking at selections it hasn’t gotten any easier). We have a few issues to deal with but it wouldn’t be Fantasy Footy if this game was easy… so Let’s Scramble!!

When do we cash in a Cow?

We have reached that part of the season where we need to start cashing in our Rookies and the never ending question is when do I cash them in. This is generally a fairly easy answer. You cash in the guys that have a Break Even that is equal to or higher than their average. Sometimes you can’t do this as you have other issues to deal with. When that happens I will look at who will do the least damage to their value if I keep them. There is never a perfect time to cash in one of your cows, but you just have to look at what is the best move for you. Sometimes the guy you trade out will have a blinder next week and burn you but sometimes you get it just right. So if you can win more than 50% of those situations it is a good thing.

We have a very interesting case study this week. If you are still holding Zak Butters, which many RDT and SC players would be, most people were planning to trade him out this week. However, with him being omitted this week you may not need to trade him just yet. The key is that he will not change in price since he won’t play. So if you have other bigger issues to deal with or if you don’t have an obvious trade in for him, then you could leave him to sit on your bench for another week whilst you deal with other problems.

Then we have another interesting one and that is Sam Walsh in AF he has a BE of 85 and an  average of 95, in RDT he has a BE of 103 and an average of 95 and lastly in SC his BE is 97 and an average of 95. There has been a lot of talk this week about trading him out because he has maxed out in price. But, a consideration that I have here is that he is scoring really well and whilst he may drop a few dollars he is providing points. If you are downgrading him and have to play someone like Gibbons or Setterfield on field instead then you could be sacrificing too many points. With a guy like him, I will leave him to be my last upgrade or even keep him on my bench as cover. He is going to play the vast majority of the season. At the very least I intend keeping him until the Carlton bye round.

#AskDunny

So a lot of the questions that people asked me this week became redundant after teams came out with Hately beingng dropped. Anyway, here are a couple of them…

Love a two parter! When looking at the first part of your question there you need to look at a couple of things. The BE and also the matchup. Their BE’s are pretty much the same in AF so next we look at their matchups. Treloar has Carlton and Boak has the Crows. So based on that Treloar should have a field day. Grab Boak next week.

This is The Question this week. Now at this point we know that Danger  is named and Chris Scott will give him right up until the last minute and let’s be honest, they LOVE a late out! So I fully expect him to be not playing. Up front, in RDT and SC we hold, no questions asked. In AF however, you do have a choice to make. If you are thinking he will miss then you could trade him out. We have talked about this strategy a number of times and it can be a very risky one or a very fruitful one. However, in this case Danger has made this a little easier for us. His poor score last week has boosted his BE so trading him out his week is not as big an issue as it could otherwise be. If he plays he probably still drops in value and you can get him back again at a cheaper price. Whether he plays or not you could probably make some cash. But, just be aware that we know sometimes we have other issues to deal with and it can make getting him back in a bit harder than we think.

The upshot? Well it is personal choice but given the BE this isn’t one of those times we hold in AF without question.

I say go get him. His BE is sitting at 86 so not a big target for him and against North he should have a big game. I don’t think the Roos will tag him but I wouldn’t be making my trade in decision based on a tag from North. Hutchings maybe but not Ziebell. North need him to go get the footy.

If you have both Ebert and Danger in your forward line I am going to guess that your bench isn’t going to cut it. So in that case I would say you probably could trade one of them out this week. Both have pretty high BE’s. In this case I think I trade Danger, only because we know that Ebert is a concussion and he should be back into things next week but with an MCL Danger could take a bit longer to get back to his best.

Selection Table

Massive night at the selection table this week and it has huge implications for Draft teams particularly with a lot of players that aren’t necessarily on Classic teams but very draft relevant being dropped either through injury or omission.  Here are my thoughts on some of the key ins and outs.

Jordan Ridley – He has been omitted and as a result of that and his BE being fairly high then he could be traded out.
Brayden Ham – comes back in for his second game. Could be a downgrade for RDT and SC players next week if he goes well.
Lachlan Young – Retained his spot with Suckling coming back into the side as Dickson was omitted. This is a big win for us.
Noah Answerth – Also retained his spot with Bailey coming back into the side. This is another win for us.
Will Setterfield – Returns this week after a good week in the VFL. He has some cash to make so keep him for now.
Dayne Beams and Taylor Adams – Both missing for the Pies so this should really benefit Treloar, Sidebottom and Pendles.
Brayden Fiorini – out Injured! He has been putting together his best and most consistent season. Not in a lot of classic teams but highly selected player in draft.
Zak Butters – Out omitted as I mentioned above. We all suspected this but you can hold him if you want to as his price won’t drop this week.
Ebert and Wines – Both out as we already knew. Hold Ebert as it is just one week but Wines out for 4-6 says must trade.
Constable – is named on the end of the extended bench and given Chris Scott’s comments during the week I don’t expect to see him play.
Brett Bewley– is named first in the extended bench! Could we actually see him play? Will come into my AF side if he does.
Scrimshaw – is back after a week off. Don’t expect too much though.
Jackson Hately – DROPPED AGAIN! Seriously Leon what are you doing? This kid can play! Yes you have a team of guns but five him a chance!
Shane Mumford – Injured. Or is he? Doesn’t appear on the official injury list on the AFL site (but not that that thing is updated often enough). Could it just be that the 9 free kicks against caught up to him?
Lachie Whitfield – misses another week! I am still holding him.

Things To Remember

  • Have some Bench Cover! Late outs are likely this week up forward if you have Danger! We know they love doing it so be prepared for it.
  • If you do end up trading Danger out be ready for the fact you may have bigger issues later on and it may take a week or two to get him back.
  • Not all rookies have to get traded out because their BE is close to their score. Look at what your other players will score for you first.

Bit of an odd week this week, we were all prepared with our trades then we have a huge night at selection! We had some ordinary scoring last week and I am predicting early that we will see more of the same this week! Just be ready for it.  Hope you all have a good weekend and see you all again next Friday!

      I was thinking that but with no rookies coming through this week I’m inclined to trade Whitfield hold danger and trade liberatore, bringing in Treloar and Merrett. I’ll go petruc down to Corbett next week try . Just a personal thing for me as I don’t think there’s a rush on Corbett and I like seeing rookies before I jump on so without any being named . Was going to trade Whitfield last week but moved constable instead more. For me potentially having two premiums out is a bit much last week we got lucky with our cover and still had a shit week, just the way I’m looking at it

    Boak or Tim Kelly? Kelly a lot cheaper, but Boak works better for my bye structure. Also something very appealing about getting in the highest averaging player so far. Or is Kelly better value?

      Not sure Boak will average more by seasons end: he has never averaged more than 96.1 in a season in AF/DT ever. Totally agree that both are must haves. Get Boak now (with all the PA outs, surely a of ball is going through him). Get TK later. At present Boak clearly has the higher ceiling

    Which option to trade libba & Dangerfield to guys:

    1) Boak & ~ 200k rook (or l. Baker?
    2) as above except treloar instead of Boak
    3) Fyfe & Ziebell

    Would have ~ 300k in the bank with first 2 options to upgrade Wilkie and Burgess next week.

      Me too. I looked at them both earlier this week and concluded that Sicily will average more, but Daniel was safer and had the bonus of dpp. Can u see Daniel likely being in your forward line down the track? – that could be a circuit breaker.
      Sicily also may get a little cheaper, Daniel won’t.

      With the byes coming up Daniel’s DPP status could be very handy for shuffling players around and trading to ensure you have eighteen playing each round. If all other considerations seem equal (such as not being really sold on either) then maybe that could be what tips your hand?

        What do you think Recip? I’m leaning trade because of the high BE, likely late out this week, and because bringing in Boak suits my bye structure. However I think I am also being influenced by holding Whitfield last week when I should have traded!

      DoubleA

      May 10, 2019 at 2:43 pm

      Option 1 for certain. You need maximum cash generation before the byes for your player upgrades. Ballenden is dead weight. Corbett’s breakeven is 3, so he’ll go up in value at least $20k next round. Petr’s BE is at his current average, so there is a good chance he has maxed out or will slide next week, but you can move him out next round and even if he slides slightly, he’s unlikely to drop more than Corbett gains. Either way you get Gawn, but otherwise you are just left having to move Ballenden out next week when you may have other more pressing trades due to injury, drops, etc

    1) Whitfield > Gaff (Arnswerth or Lockhart at D6) and Danger to Boak

    2) Libba > Boak and Wilkie > Corbett. I would then swap Danger into the midfield so Hayes with the E covers him should he be a late out.

      Ok firstly let’s just clarify something, and i’m not being a smart arse, you didn’t slip back because of holding Whitfield. I held Whits and went up from 11.5k to 6.2k. Obviously there are more issues with your team than Whitfield. Now without seeing your entire team it is hard to give good advice, but, i can say, just Don’t Panic and sideways trade your Keepers. I suspect you have done this more than once already this season. On the two examples you have given No 2 is the correct answer. Libba is not a keeper and has crashed so he needs to go, going to Boak improves your team for the rest of the year, and holding Danger and Whit will benefit when they come back in. I will be holding both Whit and Danger unless they get a long term injury. This is a prime example why not to trade solid rooks with DPP, like Drew, Stack, Rozee etc, they are perfect for covering these type of situations. one up one down are the trades to do until there are no rooks on your field, then and only then should you sideways trade.

          Thanks for the comment. I do like Ziebell and nearly went him this week, however i want to see him in the role for 1 more. Instead i went Mundy for BE, good run and what should be instant reward. So no to trading Danger anyway and look at ziebs 1 more. No to trading Rozee for the reason in my initial post. Then that leaves Duursma to Answerth as the sensible move. If you have Rozee, Stack and Drew then hold till last as 3 rooks gives 6 cover options. e.g Def =Rozee + Stack Mid = Stack + Drew Fwd= Drew + Rozee. you can effectively keep trading all other rooks to produce cash and upgrade your squad.

          Purely on the basis that you are eager to trade 2 top positional players who have very minor injuries. Not that i care, in fact i encourage everyone to keep on sideways trading, meanwhile those coaches are still running with 6 and 7 rooks on field, Yay.

    1. Bring in Fyfe for Wilkie which suits my bye structure and my gut says he can go 115+
    2. Cut Burgess for Guthrie/Dunkley which would allow another cash cow to do the job Burgess didn’t
    3. Bring in Zerret/Gaff at the expense of Setterfield/Drew who have decent JS and can give me 65ish at F6

    2. Danger & Constable > Dunkley & Daniel
    3. Danger & Constable > Dunkley & Yeo
    4. Contable & Lycett > Zerrett & Ham
    5. Constable & Pertrculle > Guthrie & Ham (keeps $200k in the Warne Chest)

      None are the best. Constable and Petch to Boak and Corbett or Answerth is my suggestion

    I’ve got to get rid of mummy and libba this week. My head says to get Gawn and either answerth or bewley (leaving me $146k)
    BUT my gut tells to go O’Brien and Ziebell (leaving me $150k)

      Ha Ha, great comment. I agree Mummy and Libba have to go, and if you are trading in the ruck dept it has to be for keeps. Now, i have O’Brien, and on field, however i got him at his starting price so that when he peaks he goes to Grundy. He has a tough job this week and will more than likely be smashed around the ring.

    Rookie choices this week:
    Pick one from Wilkie and Lockhart
    Two from Duursma, Ross, Stack and Hayes
    And as an emergency for Danger: Corbett or Larkey

    Advice would be nice, thanks 😊

    2 questions!

    1. Libba to treloar/merrett. Then trade Collins to ham (swap burgess to defense). Thus keeping danger hoping he plays, but having either corbett or ham as E!
    Leaving 91k for next week to downgrade constable to rook and drew up to boak.

    2. Libba to treloar/merrett. Collins/Constable to Keilty. Only leaving corbett as cover for danger.
    But leaving either $106k (Collins trade) or 226k (Collins trade)

    Any other suggestions welcome!

    2nd question

    Which 3 to field out of hore, answerth, stack and young in defense. Holding Whitfield 1 more week

      Don’t personally like either of those rooks for cash producing or JS, but if i have to choose it would be Ham as he has more potential. Treloar may be the better pick short term, but it’s a long season and when adams comes back you may want to trade again, so it’s merrett on those grounds. Shame we can’t be sure of Danger playing, as i think Constable will be in if he doesn’t get up. Otherwise it would be Constable out for the cash to go 1 up 1 down next week.

      Ham’s JS isn’t good. The Bombers have a lot of players competing for spots and there are even more on their injury list who’ll add to that pool.

    Stack more consistent, Ross for freo rather than Hayes against lions, Ham cause it’s not putrid.

    Heres an example of the benefits of the 3 said Rookies. Stack swaps with Whit to cover, Whit goes on Mid Bench. Drew swaps with Boak, Boak plays Mid, Ross Covers. Miers goes on Fwd ground, Drew Coverts in case of Danger out. Young covers Def.

    DEF: Whitfield, Smith, Williams, Keith, Rozee, Hore (Young, McInerney)
    MID: Coniglio, Bontempelli, Bray, Taranto, Rocky, Steele, Sheed, Stack (Ross, Drew)
    RUCK: Witts, O’Brien (Z.Clarke, Archie)
    FWD: Dangerfield, Boak, Kelly, Mundy, Dunkley, Worpel (Miers, Larkey)

    When Whits is back i have 3 weeks of 1 up 1 down until all rooks off field. Then i use stepping stones = easy up followed by sideways to finalize. McInerney only goes when Harry Morrison gets his gig. O’Brien and Clarke go down and up to Grundy as soon as cash is generated, which won’t be long.

    Trading Constable out, am I better off getting Lockhart in meaning I can go Libba to either Fyfe/Pendles or getting Bewley meaning I can get Treloar/Gaff??

    Lockhart real low b/e and decent js but am I better off getting a top premo if possible?

    Too Many options. Will have to wait for Sunday teams – i.e. Bewly etc
    At end of R7 –
    D: Lloyd, Danial, B Smith, Z Williams, Stack, Lockhart (Scrimshaw, Burgess)
    M: Cogs, Gus, Taranto, Rocky, B Crouch, Libba, Walsh, Hately, (Ross, Whitfield)
    R: Grundy, Gawn (Archie, Fort)
    F: Danger, Kelly, Heeney, Worps, Drew, L Baker (Parker, Larkey)
    $79K bank.

    Options
    1) retain Whitfield & Danger
    2) Trade Whitters or Danger
    3) Trade both

    Current trade Options are
    1) Hately & Libba > Treloar and Bewly (if named), with Ross on field, Parker to cover Danger
    2) Scrimshaw & Libba > Treloar and Answerth. Ross onfield,
    3) Whitfield & Danger > Treloar & Boak… Ross onfield,
