    Haven’t seen much discussion about Polec. $688K AVG 108, BE 68, ceiling in 150s. How’s everyone rating him?

    • Alan J

      May 3, 2018 at 11:46 am

      Nabbed him in most of my Draft leagues

    • PowerAde

      May 3, 2018 at 11:47 am

      As a power supporter I’m rating him a’round 10′

      ha! see what I did there!

    • DBoms

      May 3, 2018 at 11:57 am

      Averages can be deceiving sometimes.

      Sure it may look great with a 108 average, but look a little closer, he has only gone over 100 twice in six games. That’s not great. That means 1 out of every 3 games you’ll love him, the other 2 weeks you’ll be cursing him.

      He hasn’t been bad by any means, with a low of 87. But when you are upgrading, and paying up for a premo, you want someone who should be getting you 100+ every week, not two in the 80’s/90’s followed by a 130-150.

      If he shows he can consistently pump out 100’s, then jump on, but to go after him now is just chasing a big game. Keep in mind his 150 last week came with 12 tackles, and lets be honest, Jared Polec is never getting 12 tackles again…

      • McGlovins

        May 3, 2018 at 12:12 pm

        Pretty much doubled his career tackle count actually, but he is in career best form.

        Playing devil’s advocate though, only 2 players have got a 100+ in every game they’ve played this year. And of the 14 players averaging more than Polec this year, only 3 have a higher lowest score.

        At 1.17% ownership, deserves more attention than he’s getting I reckon.

        • DBoms

          May 3, 2018 at 1:29 pm

          Yes, it’s rare to get 100 every week, and unrealistic to expect it.

          However, a 33% success rate is below par for a premium…

          Just remember only a few weeks ago everyone wanted to trade out Lachie Neale and Adam Treloar because they were ‘only’ getting 90’s. Jared Polec is getting that 2 out of every 3 weeks, currently.

        • Alan J

          May 3, 2018 at 2:06 pm

          If you’re playing the long game and he’s a keeper, then his average is the only number that matters, but in league play those under par weeks could be the difference, and if that’s happening 2 out of 3 then that’s not good..

          But again, if you’re doing it for total points for the rest of the year, average is the only number that matters, although I think he may have peeked myself..

    Beams – ?

    • Gawn For A Quick Nank

      May 3, 2018 at 12:18 pm

      Duncan – 105
      Crouch – 107

      Bomber Thompson – 211

      • Bomber Thompson

        May 3, 2018 at 12:26 pm

        upon careful consideration, and due to bomber’s consumption of copious amounts of topshelf ‘e’ and ice i have decided to alter the averages.
        Duncan- 114
        Crouch – 112
        Beams – 107
        Bomber – 400

    Cash: $132k

    Current trades are Holman to Mutch and Coffield (Via Whitfield) to McLean. This only leaves $1k for next week and a fairly week bench with Giles-Langdon (inj), Barry and Murphy struggling with scoring potential and job security issues, thoughts?

  10. Majak Thor

    May 3, 2018 at 6:40 pm

    Holman to Ronke and Christensen to Seedsman (Banfield on field) or Parker to Macrae and Holman to Mutch (Coffield on field)

    • Dan

      May 3, 2018 at 7:17 pm

      Christensen 75 to Seedsman 95-100 is a 20-25 upgrade

      Parker 95-100 to Macrae 115 is a 15-20 upgrade

      I’d go with the Seed, feel it’s a bigger upgrade. Parker can score as well as Macrae on his day. Hopefully for your sake he fires soon

  11. Carnthecrows

    May 3, 2018 at 6:51 pm

    Blakely or seedsman?

  12. Dan

    May 3, 2018 at 7:14 pm

    Taranto going to be an all year keeper and average 90+? Don’t want to bring him in for near 600k if he’s just a flash in the pan. But think he could be the Clayton Oliver of 2018

    • lizard-of-oz

      May 3, 2018 at 7:22 pm

      its too late baby its too late

      • Dan

        May 3, 2018 at 7:25 pm

        If he keeps going at a 95 average he’s still a good buy. How is it too late?

        • Demonetise

          May 3, 2018 at 10:22 pm

          The worry is that in a full team (Kelly, Lids, Scully) his mid time and scoring drop. In this case you’ll probably have to trade. Not clear when/if that will happen, which makes him risky.

          I’m seriously considering this week. One thing I’ve noticed, however, is his disposal efficiency is a little lower than I’d like (higher efficiency = more likely to stay in mids IMO). Worlds apart from Lids in this respect.

      • McGlovins

        May 3, 2018 at 7:32 pm

    Trade Christensen or English this week?

    • Chief007

      Bundy, he’s just churning out the same score won’t make mch more, English could make a bit more but don’t quote me on that

  19. Bluemanacrab

    May 3, 2018 at 8:36 pm

    Is anyone holding onto Petracca? Named on a Fwd pocket but surely he won’t score well if his finger nearly got ripped off less than a week ago…?

    • Another Arctic Flying wombat Panda of Doom named Drowning fish

      May 3, 2018 at 9:27 pm

      Never had him but if i had held him, I would be dumping him off to a similar priced player on a low break even

    • Alan J

      May 4, 2018 at 6:15 am

      I upgraded him to Gray last week..

      I’d be happy to hold a high priced player (550k+) for a week from suspension, or if they’re a late out or rested, but if they’re not named because of injury I’d be looking to replace them.. A lot of 1 week injuries become 2 as a precaution.

  20. Chief007

    May 3, 2018 at 9:37 pm

    laird, savage, tomlinson, doodle, finlayson, coffield (pearce, murray)

    mitchell, Danger, coniglio, curnow cripps, kelly, holman Banfield(, Barry, brayshaw)

    gawn, Jacobs (mcinerney, cameron)

    Heeney, Taranto, smith, christensen, mclean, English (rioli, rayner)

    Got 88k in the bank any thoughts will give me back

    Could cash in 2 rookie build the war chest
    Bundy and Holman to rookie and Merrett
    Bundy Holman to rookie and Seedsman then swing him back next week

  21. James

    May 3, 2018 at 9:53 pm

    Finlayson or Coffield at D6???????

    • Belly

      May 3, 2018 at 11:10 pm

      Finlayson for me, safer option. Coff a chance to score 10-15 higher, but just as likely to score 40 less.

  22. Mad Fish

    May 3, 2018 at 9:56 pm

    Is Acres a trade now? He’ll probably only be a week, but only got Waterman and Ratugolea on the bench to cover.

    • James

      May 3, 2018 at 10:06 pm

      Could have worse cover, I’m holding and my cover is ZGL

      • Bill

        May 3, 2018 at 10:12 pm

        tbh I think ZGL>Waters>Rat for scoring.
        ZGL was on 33 when he was injured and was going for 75 or so.
        Waterman has some ceiling but isn’t consistent.
        Rat will be impacted with Zac Smith (an actual ruck) back.

    • Mad Fish

      May 3, 2018 at 10:48 pm

      Okay, so leaning towards getting rid of him and getting Mutch (put McLean in the forward line). That then gives me enough to go O’Connor to Zerrett (putting Seedsman in defence) and gives me cover in the back (if Coffield is playing).

      • James

        May 4, 2018 at 8:54 am

        Yep good trades

    • dan

      May 3, 2018 at 11:09 pm

      i’m trading. hasn’t been performing as much as i hoped, and most likely won’t be a top 6 forward

  23. Brendon Urie

    May 3, 2018 at 10:10 pm

    Bont and Heeney
    Treloar and Ronke

    Bont will stay in the mid more as Bevo indicated so should be a good bargain now. Heeney looks to have regained his form and Sydney have a good run ahead.

    Treloar’s form is excellent but there are questions about Adams back in and some injury niggles. Ronke is dangerous and could lose his spot soon.

    • Plugger

      I think you have argued your own preferred inclusions – and I would say you’re on the money!

  24. Mad Fish

    May 3, 2018 at 11:19 pm

    Which trade option to do?

    Billings —> Zerrett (via McLean) and Acres —> Mutch (via Crowden) with $546,000 in bank and Waterman as F6.
    Acres —> Zerrett (via McLean) and O’Connor —> Mutch (via Seedsman) with $179,000 in bank and Billings as F6.

    • Alex

      May 4, 2018 at 1:18 am

      Acres at least won’t lose you money this week. Going pretty well if Billings is your F6. 2 sounds good, though it sounds like you have plenty of options. You should maybe double upgrade?

    • Alan J

      May 4, 2018 at 6:20 am

      I wouldn’t be trading out 2 of your higher priced players in the 1 round.. They’re priced like that for a reason and have potential to top 100.

      I’d also be moving on from O’Connor (I have to hold him at least another week unfortunately) ASAP.

      So yeah, 2nd option easy

  25. dan

    May 3, 2018 at 11:25 pm

    acres to taranto / pendlebury / gaff / menegola / mclean

    really like the look of gaff. huge pod, and feel this is his year to become an uber premium, even if playing off the wing. he is taking full advantage of the wide optus stadium, and they play there nearly every second week. lowest score of 92 so far this year, and a 3 round average of 113. if the eagles can continue in this form, gaff should push top 10 mids my year’s end. not sure of taranto and menegola’s role after their teams have full strength midfields, but taranto still shows value and menegola could still possibly become a top 6 forward. mclean or pendlebury would obviously be the safest options, but show no benefits of ceiling or value. 1k of getting treloar btw!

    would love to hear your thoughts, cheers

    • Alex

      May 3, 2018 at 11:38 pm

      Gaff will struggle in a game that is scrappy and contested, he will score well at Optus (provided he never receives a tag – perhaps Shuey most likely candidate) but I can’t see him being top 10, though he does have favourable bye.

      Pendles the best and most consistent of those

      • Alan J

        May 4, 2018 at 6:23 am


        Gaff is a lot like Duncan.. Outside runner with an elite motor and kick and Weagles love it in his hands moving forward, but he doesn’t tackle much, so I don’t think he’ll ever be in that Top tier category for a MID until he does

  26. TC

    May 3, 2018 at 11:25 pm

    1. Billings up to Macrae
    2. Brayshaw (freo) to R Gray
    3. Brayshaw to Seedsman/top defender

    • dan

      May 3, 2018 at 11:30 pm

      i’m staying away for gray atm, and hoping he drops in price after his bye. billings needs to go, but i think seedsman is showing the best value atm, and id go option 3

    2. Christensen > Taranto/McLean (leaves $64k/$6K)

    Thanks in advance!
