Well might as well keep this theme going ...

- Why ... I like it and since I can't win it overall find it interesting to monitor ...

To start with is my part 1:

- 3 teams entered the top 20 this week and the order shuffled quite a bit ...

Part 2: is the actual team break downs, probable trades made , injury updates etc but I didn't commence this topic so will wait on @THCLT comments before continuing ...

Edit: OK so got the go ahead so Part 2 should appear sometime tomorrow arvo ...

As promised here is Part 2:

Carrying on from the great work from @THCLT.

- For those coaches at the pointy end of the overall ranking, this thread may be of some use as you endeavour to craft your way onwards and upwards for the remainder of the season.

Notes:
- Below is a listing of players for the Top 20 teams with non-playing players greyed out and injured players in red text for ease of viewing.
- Also included is total points and points behind leader for subsequent teams. Hopefully, we'll see one of SCS member's team feature in this analysis in the not too distant future.

- 3 new teams appeared in the top 20 and I don't know what trades they may have made since the last update
- Of the remaining 17 teams I've also included what their respective trades probably were since the last post on this topic

Great stuff Tails, its appreciated!

Man some of these top teams should know that F7's, M9's and D7's are a waste unless you have a close to perfect team and a lot of trades spare. Never seen a situation where it works or helps the team barring getting one for the last few games. You can also just end up wasting a trade on a player who is not "elite" who ends up covering the wrong position.

In theory if you have a lot of short term injuries the guy can pop up and give decent scores, but I feel you'll get more improving the weaker parts of your team providing you have "decent cover", the cover player is not usually as good as someone you can trade in for the injured player either, so the trade can disadvantage you that way as well.

Awesome work mate. Which team(s) do you think is poised to take out the 50k?

How are you getting all this info??
No real rocket science behind it - just looking up the top 20 teams on the SC website.

- However ... now that I've been watching them for two weeks (approx 27 teams) I can see what the various changes for each of those teams probably were from the previous week.

- It really doesn't take me that long then ... more a curiosity and learning exercise for future years ...

No idea ... too many variables and still a lot of luck required from this far out IMO ...

Great thread, Tails.

Bit surprised at how flawed all these are. No one has the perfect team. Hard to pick the winner from here. If there's someone in the top 50 with all the right main players (including Gawn who has surprisingly become almost PODish at the very top) and the trades to get Whitfield and cover carnage, they have a chance to run this lot down.

EDIT: @crippa39 my money's on DAMOnation, if they've got 3+ trades left. Which one's yours?

Wish Herald Sun would put some sort of measures to help out those who cop mid game injuries. May cost 5th or 6th 50g. Hope R2G can afford Cogs to Macrae!

This thread is brilliant. Fascinating to see how teams are stacking up towards the end. Don’t see much real cover with those sides.

Currently ranked 41st overall. Very interesting to note that JKelly will be a big POD for me when he returns as will Pendles. Gawn a surprise with only 11/20 ownership becoming a POD which is sweet.

Part 3: After the team selections tonight here is my update (excluding last weeks trades):

Notes:
- Most have cover for the Fyfe out and a possible Bont late out ..

- 2nd placed team needs one of Bont or Baker (O) to play to avoid a donut prior to any trades
- 15th placed team needs to trade to avoid a donut this week
