The Weekend Wash-Up – Round 10

What did Matt take out of round 10?

Forget rookie roulette, this week we tried out a game of premium roulette! Most of us lost. Thanks to the late end to the footy it will be a brief recap this week, be sure to check out the podcast for a more detailed mental breakdown. It’s time for the weekend wash-up…

LEGENDS

Anderson (142) – 42 and 2, not a bad day out. It’s all or nothing for Noah at the moment. Geelong are seriously bleeding to inside mids, keep that in mind when picking your captains…

Rowell (132) – Loves Darwin grass!! Only one poor score for the year, averaging 100. Epic. Still no marks though, amazingly he only has 1 in last 5 games.

Sexton (126) – The sex pistol… This was the story of the game. He worked on his craft and looks to have bloody mastered it. Must have. Triple double!

Flanders (122) – Flanders just did his thing, he’s thriving in that role. Sheezel started a trend and I love to see it.

Holmes (106) – Three tons in a row now for Homma, easily my pick of the season. No marks is unfortunate, but midfield time… 18 CBAs. Cam Guthrie is as washed as they come, so Max might even go to another level.

Miers (105) – Just a gun. I was going to say Dylan Moore 2.0, but that seems harsh now. Should average 90.

Heeney (125) – 24 and 3 just casually? He has to win the Brownlow. LEGEND.

Warner (117) – He saw Heeney and raised him, 28 and 3 for Cheeksy. Gun!

AFL 2024 Round 10 - Sydney v Carlton - A-49452258

Gulden (116) – He wants to play 100% TOG, don’t underestimate how much of a cheat code that is. I love this man, a couple of huge scores are coming when it all pieces together.

Newman (118) – We know what a red hot Newman streak looks like, and he has just started one. Great POD.

Crouch (119) – 34 disposals from just 65% TOG!! Matt is on fire at the minute, a safe 100 guy until his bye.

Crisp (118) – It was flagged last week and now it’s confirmed. Jack Crisp is back. 22 CBAs, he was absolutely elite. Must be on your radar.

Dawson (117) – Just a shame I disrespected his score as captain. Looked on target for a monster. His role just restricts his huge ceiling, but he’s a must have.

AFL 2024 Round 10 - Collingwood v Kuwarna - A-49460533

Daicos (115) – Not getting Nick Daicos 3 weeks ago will haunt me more than Marshall, because that one I could have seen coming. 41 disposals, 22 contested, 14 clearances. Yep he’s figuring this midfield gig out.

Marshall (171) – ………….. Nothing to say really. Where was this against GWS? Why did he act like he broke his leg against Port? Why did I trade him to Jordan Sweet? Never forgive. Never forget.

Clark (141) – Talk about making the most of a matchup. 8 tackles to go with it too!! The perfect storm, still a mid 90’s guy but a great pick.

Ryan (126) – Ditto. How’s the form line! Luke Ryan is a monster. What a POD.

Jackson (116) – That’s more like it, I assume him and Marshall just shook hands before the bounce. Bizarre stuff but I love it.

NWM (110) – Saints = Great for fantasy, shit footy. Put Bonner (109) into that category as well. 8 kick ins for Nasiah, he is reaching Brent Stanton levels here.

Young (108) – Ah, how nice to own an actually good footy player. Getting it done every week.

Hill (109) – You can do a whole lot worse up forward…

Zorko (148) – Showing proper fantasy pig behaviour. Chasing top dollar premiums hasn’t worked for me, I just didn’t realise Zorko was a 120 guy? Disgusting behaviour, 15 marks too. Unbelievable.

AFL 2024 Round 10 - Brisbane v Richmond - A-49476643

Fisher (121) – Sickening. The fish is a must have if this role sticks, I’m just not convinced it will.

Sheezel (119) – I think this weekend it became clear we have bigger problems than trading out Harry Sheezel. Let’s face up people, downgrade your rookies not your premiums!

Caldwell (105) – No Parish and it’s a green light.

Houston (136) – 5 round average of 104, but you could never trust him. Great draft pick.

Butters (112) – Huge last quarter, 16 touches is immense… Just give us 4 quarters Zak!

JHF (112) – The horny one.

Day (109) – Will is coming on……. Huge watch.

AFL 2024 Round 10 - Yartapuulti v Hawthorn - A-49517419

Hardwick (132) – The true wizard? I had to refresh my app to make sure this wasn’t a glitch.

Meeky (108) – Big again. Absolutely bathed Visentini, well done Ken.

Waterman (126) – The W train. Unstoppable.

Reid (82) – Destined for Mt Rushmore.

LOSERS

Stewart (55) – El finita.

C.Guthrie (39) – Subbed end of the third with 38% TOG. Washed off between him and Tom Stewart.

Walsh (68) – Welcome to the f**king James Jordon show.

Soligo (75) – Mmmmm…. He’s just a 90 guy after all. Hold until his bye and hope he makes the most of these fixtures.

Laird (61) – End of an era? A few sore ribs doesn’t excuse THAT.

Sidebottom (55) – Yeah… No.

Whitfield (100) – Yes he is a loser with this score. It took 14 KICK INS. In reality it was another 60, he’s just lucky the Bulldogs kicked 50 points. Embarrassing.

Green (83) – Hope he doesn’t still have himself captain. What a disaster. Take a mark pal.

Macrae (72) – Playing his role I guess? He’s pretty much Andrew Gaff at this point, minus the assault.

Bontempelli (71) – The fall off needs to be studied. 18 disposals and 2 marks, that’s shameful.

Steele (77) – Was there strapping? Lucky he tackles.

Fyfe (61) – We are well beyond washed watch. Goneski.

Martin (53) – Has entered early retirement. Why would he want to be there?

Parish – Brutal. Gutless. Pathetic. Pea hearted. All words that come to mind. Season ending trade.

Merrett (78) – I saw this coming from Q1 against the Eagles. Bull sh*t he had this role all year. I don’t believe you. Of all the guys I thought wouldn’t f**k me, Zach Merrett was meant to be the safest play. Thanks for nothing, so much for those fixtures.

Wines (30) – Really hope he’s alright, subbed out with a heart issue that he has had previous problems with. Fingers crossed.

Sweet – Oh dear.

Moore (62) – I’ll put my hand up here… I thought he was better than this. The forwards are so incredibly grim, you can only pick half backs with forward status.

Gawn (86) – Oh dear. What a way to finish the round!!! Dinner plate hands were back.

THIS GAME SH*TS ME

OK. This R2 business has pushed me over the edge. It’s almost as though the fantasy gods are toying with me. I have gone Grundy -> Marshall, only for him to SUCK, act injured, sook, and get belted by Grundy. So then, thinking he was injured, I traded him to Jordon Sweet, who happened to catch COVID and then not play again for some bloke called Visentini? So then I thought no matter, we’ll just sort this sh*tshow out once and for all and bring in Tim English. A 3 round average of 130, he was back and the clear R2. Or so I thought. His captaincy score this week didn’t even beat Marshall by himself. What a total pea hearted piss ant. Grundy -> Marshall -> Sweet -> English. Yep, this game sh*ts me.

AFL 2024 Round 07 - Port Adelaide v St Kilda - A-48199259

THE OTHER BITS AND PIECES

2271, ranked 2,221. This just makes the Marshall pain worse, because my other moves outside of the ruck debacle have been great! Well, aside from getting Merrett over Daicos. It just leaves me sitting here confused. Bewildered. I don’t know how to feel. 20 of my 22 players performed. I moved up in rank, it was actually a fantastic week. Yet it is over shadowed by what is now the WORST MOVE OF ALL TIME.

Anyway….. I can’t be bothered trading my forwards as if their name isn’t Zorko there’s no point. The sex pistol can come in for Tom Powell who is totally useless, and that lets me upgrade Clohesy to Jack Crisp. Fisher could also come in for Reid but I don’t trust that bloke at all.

Powell -> Sexton

Clohesy -> Crisp

Be sure to check out and podcast and good luck next week legends!!!

love the write up again Matt.. score above 2200 is still decent with all the MID carnage, i only made it to 2188, thanks to Bont, Green, Walsh, Steel & Guthrie (have a soft spot for him from a few years back when he has the sweeping defender role, got sucked in by his first game back against Dees)..

same as you, last couple weeks trades have been decent, Daicos for Yeo & Oliver for Roberts, but f***, picking Bont over Serong to start the year still haunts me big time..

Guthre -> Crisp
Graham -> Sexton

leaves me with Clohesy & Reid on field for a couple weeks while i build the $$ up to target Gulden then Rozee after their bye..

Better score then me Matt,
Only limped over 2000.
Parish late out hurt me. Having to hold both Stewart and Rozee has hurt also.
Who goes first Ralphsmith I know YUK or Clohesy?? Can go Clohesy to Will Day from Darcy Jones to Phillips or Ralphy to Fish??
Love your work legend.

I don’t have Ralph, but this week I’m trying to only trade non playing rookies as they are starting to build up

Excellent work Matt. Glad I didn’t play you this week, you got me by one point. My 2270 was reasonably good but Bont, Steele and a couple of others need to lift. Ranking up to 705, having a very good season so far, hopefully it continues, have no idea what trades I’ll be doing this week. Maybe if McKercher is out again I might have to consider Sexton.

Held Rowan Marshall and he has been my captain the last two weeks for 328 and 342. Should Bont go?

Thanks for the write-up, great to hear everyone else’s “poor” scores. I’m so happy I managed to scrape over 2000!! (2012 to be exact).
One rookie will go “up” to Sexton, and I’m looking at either Dale or Powell to get the boot. I’ll have to do my bench rookie downgrades next week I guess. I think Dale has a higher ceiling, but also a chance of a Jordon tag?

I have fix ups trades this week trading out Lefau and Campbell to Sexton and Richards. Got Fisher last week.

Would u do Reid and Wilson to sexton and Caldwell
Or Howes and D Jones to Sexton and Richards?
Bench is kind of weak with the first one but can be fixed during byes? Thoughts?

be wary of Don mids, seems to be a bit of a rotating door for who gets the CBAs..
depending on the we’ve seen Caldwell, Perkins, Durham, Gresham, Parish, Hobbs and Stringer through the guts, so it’s a gamble each week as to who gets the lions share, even Merrett has been kicked out the last 2 games..
