Finding rookies that will play long term, that’s the name of the game this week. With the byes coming up in only two weeks, we are looking to avoid ‘trap’ rookies – players that could punish us by getting dropped during the byes. ft. Faz
Starting with who to keep and who to trade, we discuss trading out ‘deadwood’ like Jed Anderson. After poor games from both these rookies, question marks have emerged over both Robbie Tarrant and Patrick Cripps.
Then a desperate discussion about rookies. We need rookies that will play long-term, but there just does not seem to be any available. Do we roll the dice on Shane Biggs, Karl Amon, Trent Dumont, Bailey Dale or Connor Menadue?
@supercoachcoach thoughts on Shane Biggs v Karl Amon v Trent Dumont

Perhaps this is a week to make no trades instead?
Then to the backline… with so many coaches frustrated by large variations in scoring, consistency is high on the agenda – we identify for you the most reliable defenders in SuperCoach 2015.
Joel Selwood has been dishing out rubbish scores, and Marcus is not happy. But for those coaches without him, can Selwood actually return to his former heights?
@supercoachcoach Selwood – once again, looks like we'll snare him for low $500ks – but is he still a must have in this diminished Cats team?

Struggling for rookies, Marcus also throws up Mitch Wallis for value-generation.
Then to the forward line. Where, surprisingly, Marcus Bontempelli‘s has been put on the chopping block by some easily frustrated coaches! Bottomed out, the now somewhat underrated Lance Franklin is tempting:
@supercoachcoach Buddy Franklin.. Top 6 fwd this year? At $447k with Carl and GC in the next two games is now the time to take him?

Finally, we look at the enigma that is Brett Deledio. Is that achilles worth the risk?
@supercoachcoach with not many rookies are is it worth looking at a hugh Goddard for a downgrade ?
