Friday Fantasy Fill Up – Rd. 12

Grab a knock off froth and get set for round 12.

Welcome to a Friday arvo column that hopefully helps you get set for the weekend ahead. I’ll be looking at the key points/questions that have popped up during the week with some quick fire opinions, plus a look at how the mighty Warne Dawgs are looking ahead of the coming round.

Don’t miss:

Round 12 trading (and beyond)

Alright – let’s get to the nitty gritty. Unfortunately I am getting very time poor on Fridays (I had great intentions for this column, but my work schedule has changed meaning I’ve lost a few hours of my week … so this is a rushed job!).

Basic bye rules should be to trade out players on a bye, for those who have had their bye. Those players that we should be trading out, preferably, are rookies who have made their coin or mid-pricers you can thank for their services.

That’s a perfect world… BUT also a world AFTER this week.

What are we looking at? No matter who we bring in, they’ve got a bye coming up.

If you’ve got Sean Darcy, it’s a must-trade for me. Yep, you could hold and wait for more info, but I would be shipping him off not to use the cash and the premium selection that would come from the move. Tim English is who most would want, but it’s tough buying in at that price. Not only for the cash from Darcy, but the whole paying top-dollar when his numbers probably don’t warrant that pricetag is an issue for me in the way I play the game.

Jarrod Witts, for the bye, is a solid option to try to run until you can get English. Darcy Cameron and Kieren Briggs are players coaches are looking at that offer some value. I’m not exactly sure where I would land there. Cameron is more the ‘keeper’ and less risk, but the Briggs play would be the better short-term play.

Whether you trade or hold James Sicily is another big question. My gut feel is to flick him to another premium. Someone made a good comment that while he is only missing one game outside of the bye we knew he would be missing, his R13 score might be less relevant with msot teams looking towards fielding their best squad of the four bye rounds then. Something to consider. I’d find it hard to trade him if I was fielding 20 or more. The trade is a big play, though.

I’ll discuss my trades below and in the video, but getting Oisin Mullin is a must IMO. He allows us to either fix a red dot or get some cash (ie. from a Darcy Wilmot) while having the R13 bye. Fingers crossed he’s there for us for R14-15. One thing to take note of planning is that hopefully you’re not ruining things to have him as D6 at R16. That wouldn’t be an ideal thing…

Prioritise who you are moving on. Wilmot and Mattaes Philliopou are the rookies I’ll be flicking this week. Some are going with Will Ashcroft. I’m not against it, but I have a crap team that will probably need him for his capacity to score. The Gabba thing might be real, but he has a nice run of games coming up regardless.

Red dots can go this week. Maybe less important in the next three rounds.

Some are looking at trading in a R12 bye player. It’s definitely something you can consider. If you’re rocking 21, I think you can do that… it will obviously set you up for future bye rounds. I wouldn’t buy into a rookie on a bye (not that there really are any), but anything can happen in that fortnight between games.

Get a bit of a plan of who you want to target off the bye. The obvious names are Andrew Brayshaw, Caleb Serong… Jack Steele (hopefully the break will do him good), Jack Sinclair… Josh Dunkley, Lachie Neale… Errol Gulden, Chad Warner. Round 12 bye players aren’t massively attractive. In a way, I wish I waited on getting Brayshaw in.

Ahh.. I have run out of time (school pick up awaits). Watch the video!

Mid-season Draftees added to the game

The players taken in Wednesda night’s mid-season draft have been added to the game. Prices and positions as below. The best Fantasy player of the lot is Mitchell Hardie who was averaging 109 points from his 7 SANFL games. Going to Geelong, we probably won’t see him. Ryan Maric might be a chance for the Eagles at some point.

Player Club Position Price
Ryan Maric WCE FWD $200,000
Robert Hansen Jnr NM FWD $200,000
Clay Tucker HAW RUC $200,000
Matthew Coulthard RICH FWD $200,000
Harry Arnold SYD DEF $200,000
Mitchell Hardie GEEL MID $200,000
Ethan Stanley FREM MID/FWD $200,000
Jaiden Hunter ESS FWD $200,000
Caleb Poulter WB MID $410,000
Quinton Narkle PA MID $432,000
Brandon Ryan HAW FWD $200,000
James Trezise RICH DEF $200,000
Jack Buller SYD FWD $200,000

Join our Knockout competition

Weve had this running on our Patreon this year and it’s down to the final 32!

It has been a lot of fun having the eliminator-style game back, so we thought we would have a crack at another one post-byes with thanks to our mate Jaiden.

All you have to do is join our league (code: SEKHWV6P) and if you are in the top 512 scores for the four bye rounds (total points), you will make it into the knockout comp that will start in round 16.

Warne Dawgs – Round 12

Oh boy. I am lucky I don’t have any forced injury/suspension trades… and I have scraped to 20 players this week with trading out three blue dots for three players all with the R13 bye. Hopefully this sets me up. Defintitely OK with the Mullin and Humphrey moves. I’m paying a bit more than I would like for the latter, but he should be a decent play on BE and his role. I don’t love the Stocker to Rowell move. But, getting rid of Stocker who isn’t a keeper and can be moved on is probably the most logical play for me. Rowell could ge me through the byes, but wouldn’t necessarily be someone I would really want at R16. But, he could surprise me… fingers crossed he can continue his inside/outside game that is seeing him enjoy a spike in Fantasy numbers.

Nice to see some love for the frass eater. I originally was going to bring him in this week but went Hobbs to suit my bye structure. I also didnt like the idea of getting Rowell in for one match. He’s coming in for me Round 14.

Love your work Warnie

Hi Warnie, just an observation, you look to be going late on too many players that others already have lately, this won’t get you ahead, either against the field or in cash generation

Going later on someone like Humphreys doesn’t somehow mean he’s not going to generate cash still, or potentially score points. He went early in Wardlaw which was a good decision, so it goes both ways and balances out, as you can’t bring everyone in at rock bottom prices.

And then there is the bye factor also, which means his team will score more the other weeks also.

Adding a first year rookie at $478k is too late. 2 more 65 scores and he only makes $40-$50k more….others around his this price will make more…

Only 40-50k? Have you seen the cash gen that rookies have been putting up for us so far this year?

And if he puts up 2 back to back 90’s instead, like he did literally a fortnight before, then you’re laughing and made a huge jump on the opposition with both cash and scoring.

But of course you’d make the argument you just did, hours after his match this week, instead of before though.

And that’s without even taking into consideration Humphrey’s bye week was the major attraction there, and the greater depth of scoring it will give over the next month.

Taking Humphreys was a no brainer. You’d be bad not to.

Hi all,
Quick question that has probably already been covered. If I have a 22 player on the bench with an (e) on them, and the do alright. Will their score count if I put a bye player on field? Or do they need to start on field?

Noah Long finally makes it on ground for me, scores a mighty fine 65 over a bye, which is punching well above average, and his score probably won’t count.

Meanwhile, I’ve got that 70 from Day being counted.

I’d rather take the 5 point drop and have Kong’s fine performance counted, than the SLOP that Day has left sitting on my field. Disgusting.
