Published by Lekdog on

Concrete Booking Agency

LekdogG’day Community! Lekdog here with some mo’ supercoach news…

Today I wrap up round 2 and discuss the fall from grace of The Great Gary Ablett

As always I’d love to hear from you as to what you would like to see in these videos, if left to me the videos will progressively get angrier as Carlton performs poorly…

Lots of love, @LekBlog.

Thoughts on Ablett > Jack

Derek

Jack has been under radar. Gun.

Girdle

His best average was 112 back in 2012. If you already have Pendles, Fyfe, JPK, Sloane and Lewis then go with Jack. If not, then one of the above……

James

Good trades?

Lambert-vandenberg
Menzel-Gunston (would go franklin, but too expensive), (dont trust bontempelli just yet……

Brian

so Gunston > Bont ???

personally not trading Bont in this week either, but Gunston over him… BOY OH BOY WOWEE

James

Cheers, feel like Gunston more mature, if that makes sense

General Soreness

Is Gunston a keeper? – No imho. Is he a cash cow? – no imho. = Menzel to Bont, cash cow = yes, keeper? unlikely but maybe. Might be able to straight swap him to Franklin shortly.

James

Yeah cheers for that lads

Spifflicator

Nice one Lek, love the shirt!

eatemalive

Very moving Lek, I'm having a quiet Carlton Dry myself pondering trades. Glad I took Bob Murphy on your advice ,Gulp

Jacob

NAT FYFE INJURED!! Not playing this week and possibly out for 3 or 4. Do we hold?

KJU FC

source?

Brad

Yes because he hasn’t got a break even of over 200 with a Buggerd shoulder.

eatemalive

nothing on their website or AFL,where did you here this ?

Redd

Cmon jacob thats just not true

Frank

Poor form jacob.

r2d2

Very poor

TOPHAWK1

You bloooody shiiiitt!

Welcommme!

Crouching

LOL

Jacob

*Gary Ablett. My bad guys. really sorry for confusion

3. votes

Good trades?
Cockatoo- Van berlo or
Cripps- Van Berlo

also
Goodes- Oxley? thoughts

SLOJOE

I have both oxley and saad down already anyone else worth downgrading goodes from or upgrading goodes too?

seaford scouse

McIntosh as a dg

Crowls

the lekdog is right

Dean

Regardless whether Cripps is named or not, your much better off trading Cockatoo to Van Berlo because Cockatoo will be losing around $11k while Cripps wont lose anything.

Rory

that's what i'm doing goodes to oxley but you might be able to save a trade and keep cripps

Hotplates

Bit of help here guys:

Gaz to Lewis or Sloane? Thinking Lewis as best supercoach scorer in best side who will win most of their games.

Then either:

– Miller/Cripps to NVB (Means missing out on Bont)

– TBC to Bont (Means I lose that ruck swing, but feel my scoring will be better for it – though I miss NVB as a cash cow)

Already have all other decent cash cows.

Cheers!

Jack

I have the exact same issue! I'm going Gaz to Sloane.

Then either TBC to Bont
or getting Oxley in and saving some cash (currently have hauling and Goddard on the bench in defence)

What do you reckon?!

adam

i have the same problem, get bont in or van berlo. I was thinking if bonts keeps going this way against good teams he's a must have. but if he gets the tag his price may go down..? I'm very unsure

CJay

Thanks Lekdog always quality advice with the added bonus of a good laugh.
Cheers!

DamonG

Thoughts on Shane Savage? Solid average in the first 2 rounds plus showed glimpses towards the end of last year, why is he being so overlooked as a mid priced defender?

My thoughts at the moment:
OUT: Ablett
IN: JPK / Lewis (Already have Sloane, Fyfe)

OUT: B Goodes
IN: Savage / ???

Riley

What are everyone’s thoughts on Dayne Beams? Stick fat or move on to Sloane/JPK type?

Rory

gotta stick with your prems

eatemalive

He's a bit stiff with no Rocky or Handley in the side, I don't have him but trading out Prems to me is not an option unless a long injury – Its a long season mate, he will come good.

travis.batta

you picked him as a premium keeper so l feel you have to stick fat and save that trade for when it really is needed

Donavan

keep him. You dont trade premo's unless they are injured or reported, and out for multiple weeks.

Mac

Dusty went shocking one week then went massive the next. Hold him

Dee

Leak dog what's your SC Rankings mate? Just curious….

Jack

Thoughts on Bont Lekdog?!

Redd

Traded GAJ to JPK now the problems i made a mistake in starting fasolo down back so am strongly considering Alex Rance but i also have cripps and enough xash to turn salem into bont decisions decions Am currently ranked 1178 top 1% but need to make sure of these trades to keeo my spot

Boggers

Cripps still has a week to play before his price changes so you can hold there .. with the added bonus that Salem should rise enough to cover most of The Bont's increase. However, Salem could also make some solid cash over the coming weeks and Bont only needs 1 bad game to keep him affordable. Offloading skinny bobby calves to the market is fraught with danger, try to let them become prime, fat yearlings to get best value. Same down back, make sure you have the good Defense rookies before hunting premos this early in the season. Good luck staying in the hunt ..

Redd

Cheers boggers appreciate the feedback i like where your comon from

Benno

Here's my move
Gaz > Sloane
Crispe > Wallis
Cost me about 10k, boost point generation plus provide Wallis as stepping stone.
Any thoughts

Donavan

Love the arm-band Lek

Anyone know what happened to Wells, and if his likely to miss this week. I know he was subbed due to injury…but no more thyan that.

Thanks.

Billy

Just a precaution. Scans revealed no damage to his Achilles. He'll play.

eatemalive

Yes, the armband ? whilst Carlton are dying ,their not dead yet !

Redd

Lekdog whats your oppinion on A.Rance and Brodie Smith. Do you think Alex can continue his good form and do you think that sickening head knock brodie received will affect his performance i hear hes exoected to line up this week?

Donavan

Wouldnt be surprised if Smith is a late out. Similar to Bartel last weekend.

It was a shocking clash, i would be very surprised if he played.

Redd

Yeh thats what im thinking Just not sure wich trade to make Fasolo to rance Cripps to NVB or salem to the bont. Rance up 40k should be top 5 def NVB up 70k great cash cow but not a keeper and the bont up 50k but im still sceptical about the bont and the doggies

Donavan

In your position , I think I would do the Fasolo to Rance trade.

You can not have every cash cow, and the name of the game is to get to full premo as fast as possible with as many as possible tradxes remaining (for injury coverage).

Also not sure I would write-off Cripps yet, maybe getting dropped was the kick in the pants he needs.

Tylo

I'm also considering Rance, Astbury's return will be the key to him scoring well consistently. Imo you should definitely keep Salem. You know you could do Cripps to Bont as he's F/M, but I share your skepticism there.

Redd

Donovan Lekdog Tylo appreciate the feedback lads cheers

the sprinkler

hey LEKS- Im going GAJ – Sloaney, and Cripps – Bonts and leaves me 30Kish. What you think?? scored 2286 this week and hoping bonts will be more consistent than a fingers crossed heeney. Then can slot bonts into fwd when i snag pendles later on.

Craig

I have all the money makers except nvb. I’m in the top 500 and don’t know if I should go for money or points. I have fyfe. Sloan. Rich. Neale. Danger. Steven. Ward. But no Kennedy. I’m trading kolojasnij in back I’m trading for Oxley. Should I trade cripps for nvb $250000 adelaide have easy draw. Or trade Steven for Kennedy $97000.

The Ranger

I'd go the Kennedy option. Cripps to NVB is a sideways trade and you want to avoid them if you can.

Vlastuin Paradise

This week is the week for correction aka sideways trades ONLY IF THEY ARE ROOKIES. Cripps > VB is a solid trade for cash generation.

Craig

Thanks.sounds like good advice to me

Dean

Cripps to NVB is not a sideways trade in this situation because NVB will increase dramatically in price.

Either way its a tough call mainly because Adelaide play Melbourne this week in Adelaide so its highly likely NVB will score close to JPK score.

However saying that, if your ranked 500 overall, your allot better getting in top premiums like JPK in your side ASAP as they are the ones that will keep you raked right up there but JPK wont go up much at all in price so you will need to bring him in the following week.

I'm sorry if im confusing you. If it were me in your situation, I would bring in NVB only because he is playing awesome and has a massive -59 break even so he should have no problem hitting $400k & next week bring in JPK as he is only projected to go up $10k

You have to trade out KK for Oxley so great move there.

Good luck in which ever way you decide to go mate.

throttlefinger

Brilliant advice to the Gazzalites and the trade happy.

Would hold on your Goodes and KK. Give them another week, as you it will take a bit of cash to get to a premo and, more inportatly, we STILL don't know the lay of the land when it comes to the top defenders. Wait until you see clear cut backline badasses then pounce. R3-4 is too soon.

The Ranger

Assuming that you are trading this week TF….who are jumping on or off?

throttlefinger

Hey Ranger. Yep, going Cripps to Vandy. Pocket the green. May go sideways Beams to Sloane. Not sure but leaning that way. Seems Lions-version of Beams not the same as Pies version.

The Ranger

Vandy looks the goods eh? I want to get him in just gotta decide on the how to.
Beams to Sloane would be bloody tempting if I had that choice. Can't help but think that Beams will come good at some point tho…

throttlefinger

He may. Just doesn't look encouraging. Lions not a top team so the SC points won't be as plentiful. Think Rocky coming back will help but not sure how much. Think it's more Sloane's form, much like Fyfe's, is going to another level. Rather put my money behind that rather than hope that Beams turns it around.

The Ranger

Nail, meet head.
I think you just talked yourself into that trade buddy!

throttlefinger

Hahaha! Well, I spent a good amount of time yesterday going over the stats trying to talk myself out of it. Couldn't be done. Didn't have any correctives R2 so think this may be trade/money well spent.

Derek

Beams looking like a fallen premium to be picked in a few weeks

throttlefinger

Very true, D. May regret move. But if you don't have him, he will be cheap in the next couple rounds.

Cyril is Delicious

The little master is not gone, just having a rest, he will be back!

But I will be trading him down to Sloane, and should I upgarde Cripps to Rich to make some quick cash, or Miller or Cripps to a NVB??

Cheers!

Donavan

Well done last week.

From Happy Hawk

Cyril is Delicious

Haha thank you!

brucies pasted jocks

ooohhhh…..rioli…..there goes another set of stitches in my trouser front…..i love a big bowl of cyriol every morning……oooooggghhhh….spare-shill!

brucies pasted jocks

ohhh Cyril- its Ok for swearing on the Podcasts, implying underage drinking for wayno and saying GAJ has his head shoved up his own pip (which was hilarious) but for some reason my comment saying I blew out the seams in my trouser front got deleted…. censorship is alive and well!!!!

The egg

I was under the impression that we are not allowed to have more than one team. But lek has the gingers. It will be a pleasent ‘gift’ if someone can tell me otherwise.

The egg

And everyone…..stop trading in sloane, his mine, stop ruining his unique status 🙂 ty

The egg

….so you may aswell not trade him in seeing as he will be owned by everyone next week. Its really not a good decision;)

PD

Community, I need help with the all important decision of replacing GAJ. Need to decide on one of the following:

Sloane, Lewis, JPK (I’m leaning on that order as I already have Pendles, Fyfe, Selwood & Beams)

Also open to suggestions on trading Lambert up fwd. Already have Clark, Hogan, Salem.

Hubris

Lonie is a FWD option that is set to make you $42k this week.

JPK is the safe bet, but Lewis I personally like and happily own. Not a bad way to save a few bucks.

Swan song

Lekdog need your help which def should I get with 453,000 in the bank and have lumumba and higgins

Pauly

Sam Fisher is looking like he might be a good option. The ball will definitely find it's way down to the Saints backline pretty regularly too.

The Ranger

Nice work Lek. Thanks. Maybe don't bother with the impressions tho eh?! Just saying…
I'm fortunate enough to not have the GAJ problem so this week is all about rookie fix ups for me.
Hamling to Oxley is a no brainer but I can't decide wether to trade Miller/Cripps to Vandenberg or Lonie/Lamb to Hogan?
Or do I just hold on to what I've got?
I'd love to get your and indeed anyone else's opinion.

Donavan

I would do Miller to Vandenberg.

Definately wouldnt be moving Lonie yet.

The Ranger

Yeah I'm leaning that way Donavan but Hogan has better job security than Vandenberg I think.
And with GAJ out Miller will hold his place I hope.
Decisions, decisions…

Donavan

I cant see them dropping Vandenberg anytime soon. He is a big bodied mid, with some speed.

I think his JS is fine, as is Hogan's.

Melbourne are going to play some good sides soon, and Hogan may not get as many opportunities in coming weeks.

Hubris

Lamb to Hogan. Get guys who are playing, guaranteed. Hogan and Dawes are the Dees’ focal points. Even if my Dees are losing, he’s the great white hope, we’ll play him.

vandenBerg has already been subbed. He does not have job security. He’s behind Jones, Vince, Tyson, Newton, Cross and Viney, plus Brayshaw looks set to feature too.

I’m thinking Cripps to van Berlo if you don’t already have him and can afford it. Cha-ching.

PD

I’m a Dees fan & Vandenberg hasn’t been subbed so that’s incorrect. R1 Brayshaw was subbed out for Toumpas. R2 Vince was subbed out for Brayshaw

I think Vandenberg has good JS

The Ranger

The variety of opinions here just sums up nicely why I'm unsure which way to go I guess.
I'm leaning towards Vandy because Hogan is a young KPP and historically at least they are less consistent.
Now at least the decsion is just Cripps/Miller to Vandy or hold on to both and bank the trade?

AM

Bennell to bont and t miller to NVB???

Haz

Why would you trade Bennell ??????
One of the stupidest things I've ever read

Girdle

Getting Bont is tempting but don’t trade Bennell for him. With Ablett out, Bennell has the potential to go very large. You’ve been warned 😉

AM

Yeah.will need tio pass on Bont…fwd and mid well set up..if I did anything it would be sideways…

Bontemgasmic

Hey Lekdog

I'm considering Miller > Hogan via Swan and Cripps to Wallis

current
Def – Shaw, Murphy, Newnes, Lumumba, Ibbo, McIntosh (Saad, Oxley)
Mids – Fyfe, Selwood, Sloane, Lewis, Griffen, CEY, Vanders, Heeney (Anderson, Cripps, Miller)
Fwds – Dusty, Swan, Bont, Belly, Salem, Clark (Lonie, Lamb)
Ruck – Maric, Nic Nat (Read)
cash $144k

thoughts?

I have used one trade last week : Rocky > Lewis

Donavan

Miller will go up in price, but a slow burn.

Wait and see if Lamb gets a game, maybe Lamb to Hogan would be better, and leave Swan forward.

Also, I went to the Haw/Ess game last week, and have doubts over Anderson (when the pressure came on, he was found wanting), I suspect he and O'Rouke will both get dropped. I could see the Hawks making a few changes this week.

So again wait for the teams to be declared, but I would think Anderson to Wallis, Rich or NVB.

Derek

I was surprised Anderson got a game ahead of Hartung.

Bontemgasmic

I'm not – Anderson was getting some games 2 years ago until he got injured. Think the Hawks rate him.

Tofor

As a Hawks fan, I'm not buying into the Anderson hype, haven't been blown away or overly impressed by him at this stage.

Bontemgasmic

Thanks for feedback Donavan

will certainly be waiting for teams before I make any trades.

interesting thoughts on Anderson – my thinking was he was a part of Clarko's plans for his ever evolving team. He has a bit of class.

jmy7

Great clip lekdog,Is it safe and certain money gain to go kk/thumper to tom McDonald or should hold onto kolo??

CorzD

Great vid Lek.
Are you sure you’re not the Crouching One? I’ve never seen a photograph of him and that was a pretty damn good impression.

Donavan

And the desk was covering the feet, so who knows if the slipper was there.

The only give away is the Juddy poster, Crouchings a Tiger.

Harrison

im not liking every now and then i see a comment saying get in wallis, i had him in all preseason i want him to go under the radar but it seems like quite a few people are jumping on for the cash generation. Hes a gun and i knew he would make me cash, solid selection but now quite a few look to be bringing him in. please fly under the radar mate, still need sloane and JPK in the mids hes the man who will hopefully get me there. Only trades this week are Gaz to Fyfe. holding goodes, miller, lambert (fwd swing loophole), KK, cripps,I have picked good rookies only missing out on NVB and Newton who are doing good for cash. IN def Oxley, saad, and mckintosh IN mid vdnberg, heeney, cripps, miller, ellis-yoeman, and lambert. IN ruc juck cox and IN fwd hogan salem clark and lonie happy days. 29 trades left and looking foward to seeing how the like of goodes and cripps etc. go this week and see if they need to go and arent going to appreciate in price. Btw im only 14 have been doing supercoach since i was 10 or 11 and last year finished top 10,000 hoping for top 5,000 or less this year. Started great with 3,855 my current rank.

C'mon the tigers!

Gold Rush

Great work Harrison, except for that tigers business.

Harrison

CMON TIGERS!!!!!!!!!! Who do you go for Gold Rush??

Gold Rush

PIES , hot, warm or cold prefer them hot though they are warm at the moment.

Frank

Go to bed Harrison. Should be in bed by 8:30 champ.

Frank

Maybe 9 if you do the dishes for Mum.

Harrison

Yep i do the dishes Frank, only been up so late because chatting up the ladies and clicking the traded and reverse trade button every 5 seconds. I have been on this site for ages but rarely post. Im considering posting weekly for more super coach advice!

seaford scouse

lamberts cooked mate

Harrison

what do you mean? Im assuming your saying hes been injured or whatever, i thought i heard something like that. Well i have 85k for rookie corrections, the only corrections needed are miller, lambert and the likes of Goodes and Cripps. I dont have enough cash to get in NVB miss out by about 10k, the only way on getting him in is Cripps but not worth the sideways trade. Miller wont appreciate much and lambert has only played one. Is it worth getting NVB in for Cripps, it seems like silly business. I traded in Fyfe this week put the C on him because he a gun. My dad went Fyfe and I went Ablett now wish i went with Fyfe, you just had to take the risk on Gaz because he is an absolute gun.

brucies pasted jocks

lamberts out for 6-8 weeks with a shoulder buddy.

Dean

Firstly awesome work Harrison,

I think you should defiantly trade Cripps to NVB only because his break even is HUGE at -59 and he is projected to increase $70,000 just in one week, not to mention the crows play Melbourne in Adelaide this week so I expect NVB to score another 80+ so there is no reason why he doesn't end up being a $400k player by round 10 or so.

While Cripps will struggle to hit $300k

Good luck in who ever you chose mate and keep up the great work.

SLOJOE

i have lambert and kraq on my fwd bench, goodes in the back line and cripps n miller in the middle! i was thinking of jumping onto vanderberg and van berlo now and riding the FAT cash cows while i can as im still in the top 1% for scoring anyways scored 2333 this week, would swap lambo nek week and upgrade goodes as i have $500,000 now and i already have oxly saad and macca bck) wise or unwise?

Girdle

You’re in top 1% and asking for advice? Ok, here goes……

1. Don’t panic on Cripps. In all likelihood, he’ll go up in price, just a week later.

2. Lambert out up to 8 weeks. Take him out for a fwd with low or negative BE (Hogan, McGrath, Lonie)

3. Miller doesn’t look a great cash cow and might lose his spot over the next few weeks. Even with Ablett and Jager out. Personally I’d take Vandenberg before Van Berlo as I’d guess they’ll both plateau around $400-450k. Van Berlo might get there a week or two quicker but other rookies of yours should be right to upgrade by then anyway. And you save spending an extra $88k for NVB in the process.

4. Upgrade Goodes next week directly to the best defender you haven’t already got in your team. Don’t muck around with that one……premo defender!

5. Good luck holding your spot up there in the rankings!

Tofor

Lamb -> Hogan
Goodes -> Smedts

Both the latter two are on the bubble, have better Job Security and likely to increase faster than the first two.

Is this a worthwhile trade, or waste of trades. Love to hear your thoughts?
An alternative for Smedts? Max Price 239k.

Any thoughts on Jackson Ramsay and Jed Bews as well?

Derek

I think Billy got suspended for a week

Girdle

Smedts is completely SC-irrelevant. Even if he wasn’t suspended for a week, I would urge you to reconsider. Same goes for your alternatives. If you haven’t got Saad, McIntosh and Oxley then one of those. If you have them, then N.Brown. Won’t set the world on fire but will at least free up $100k for upgrades elsewhere.

Tofor

Hey thanks for the feedback guys.
I'd love to get rid of Goodes for a better defensive rookie, but there just isn't one I don't have that has played worth less than Goodes!
I feel compelled to get Hogan in as a cash cow. Already have Clark, Salem, Lonie. Lamb will rise in price sure, but it looks like it will take a lot longer than Hogan.
I'd love to get the Bont in as well, but I'm still not convinced or sure he will be a keeper, top 8 forward or his scores will be sustainable. I've got Martin and Swan up forward who look similar. Bont better value for money than Martin?

V-Bomb

Nice work, Lek!

Would really appreciate the feedback on these two “post-God” options, both tactically very different:

Option 1: GAJ & Goodes for TheBont & Brodie Smith
Option 2: GAJ & Lambert for Sloane & J.McGrath

Thoughts?

Derek

Slone for sure.

Donavan

Option 2, Sloan is solid premo.

Think Smith will miss this week, maybe possible to get him next week, the Bont (and the Bulldogs) will start finding the going tough commencing this week.

Girdle

McGrath’s JS looks ok for now with Brisbane’s growing injury list. Gotta go Option 2.

V-Bomb

Thanks lads, didn’t know much about McGrath to be honest!

Derek

Anyone know much about Sinclair from the saints? What is his JS?

Stickman

Not sure was the third rookie from St Kilda to get promoted, so dont think his JS is very high. Although with Schneider as late withdrawal on Saturday and Saad being subbed off he could push his way up the pecking order when players come off the long term injury list.

Jimi

Pick one:

1. Goodes to Oxley (Oxley will stay on the bench).
OR
2. Miller to NVB (NVB will play).

Stickman

I would go NVB I think he will be the biggest bargain of the year.

Blueprime

2

Jimi

Cheers fellas.

Girdle

Love the newscast, Lekdog! Slightly disagree with Goodes though. He’s dead weight. At that price you need him going up in value (and in a hurry) or downgrading to free up the cash (possibly even to a non-playing dpp). Since his BE is 65, gotta get rid of him and use that corrective trade. Spot on otherwise!

BKW

Yep completely agree

Phil

There's no right or wrong with Goodes it pretty much comes down to your structure. For me it's a hold, because I have all the rookies that have played already (so nobody to downgrade to) and I don't have any cash to upgrade (and even if I did, I'm happy fielding 3 rookies). I'd say Lekdogs probably in a similar position to me. But if we didn't have Oxley, Saad or McIntosh, then absolutely we'd trade

He could become a little nice pod now too. I'm tipping, against the Hawks he won't be sub, more likely they will want a big body in the midfield.

Nathan

great work leak

I’m offloading Cripps this week for hogan
Foolishly didn’t go with him to start with
And I’m also looking at trading swallow for Lewis
I would like the Bont but I think once they play good sides he will lose his scoring power
Thoughts?

Luviboy1

I'm going Scott Selwood out for NVB. It would leave me with 234,000 in the kitty. Too much to be laying there doing nothing?

@AusSports84

Plenty of time to spend it my man.
I'll end up being with the same boat if I only trade Gaz to Shiel. Happy to Wait, no need to rush I guess.

tom

Ablett to JPK
and
Goodes to Oxley

are my current trades but I also have Cripps and Miller in my team.

Should I stick with these trades?

dellagz

i like it. I have been back and forth with Cripps too, but for now ill leave him and hope to see his name on the team sheet Thursday night.

Matthew

ive got the exact same problem. I'm going Ablett to Sloane, and I've been tossing between Cripps to Rich and Goodes to Oxley. Since Rich would be on my field I've decided to go with him instead, and if its not too late I'll jump on Oxley next round, as then goodes and oxley would be about the same price

John

I don’t have GAJ problem but kept enough money in the bank should the little master prove me wrong.

This means I can go cripps to Bontomsmelly or to rich but you have said to hold him lekdog. In this position would you still hold the trade?

Thanks for the video.

John

ToneStar

Ablett to Gray.
Lambert out of the fwd.
Move Gray to fwd.
Get NVB in mids.
Only rookie I'm missing.

I'm more worried about getting all right rookies in to make $$$$
Thoughts?

jacob

Good plan!

Matthew

Solid movements

DramaLlama

Great video but how's the swoop on the hair! That's what living in Melbourne does to you!

Haydo

Hey Lek dog. I’ve got some cash up the sleeve. Wondering what you think of this double trade? bang! Bang!

Goodes to Oxley

Cripps to bontempolli

I’ve alreay got saad, mcintosh, vandenberg, Heeney, Ellis yolmen, Clark, Salem, Lonce and sexy texy. I can see myself making a bucket load of cash, so this makes me fond of taking a bont risk. If he plays well, sweet. If his scores go down a mile, I should have the cash gen to trade him up to a Sloane or JPK in the matter of a few weeks. I think he is worth the trade? I mean, it’s almost a POD trading him in due to everyone’s assumptions.

Thoughts LEK?

derek

you can go Cripps >>> Oxley (swing Saad to midfield)

I N Pieman

Nice vid Lek. You’ve got Judd all over yor room. Don’t curse him for me

brucies pasted jocks

As long as its for an interview LEKDOG.

You know Brucie thinks the same when it comes to Rioli- and the interview doesnt even cross his mind 😉

dellagz

guys i know its 6 of 1, half a dozen of the other… but should i bring in Sloane or Jordan Lewis for GAJ?!

Jimi

Sloan for me, rd 11 bye if your stacked with rd 12 players.

David

Which defensive rookies do we play this week?

I am thinking Oxley (playing saints) and Saad, benching Goodes and McIntosh.

Thoughts?

dellagz

I would swap Saad for McIntosh

David

saad has consistant 90's, probably the main lock of the four?

dellagz

Down at the Cattery compared to McIntosh against an undermanned Brisbane team who have lost the last 9 games against the Tigers.
Just my way of thinking.

Question for you Dave, would you bring in Lewis or Sloane for GAJ?

David

I have Lewis. I never had Gaz fortunatley. Lewis is going to be in a winning team all year and is the best mid fielder but for some reason is never tagged.

Everyone is going to jump on Sloane, id go Lewis for POD.

Brett

Lobbe out, Grundy in! Thoughts?

I N Pieman

Try to minimise trades in the ruck. Couldn’t see Grundy avergaing much more than 70

derek

Witts will be back this week or next.

General Soreness

Why?

Brett

Lobbe is uncertain and I don’t have a scoring sub…. Need to make a move

Ben

For this round, should I:

1) Miller -> NVB; or

2) Lambert – > McGrath?

1st trade committed to GAJ -> PREMO

Jimi

1

Sana

Thoughts on Cripps to Rich? Is that too much of a jump to a mid pricer?

I N Pieman

Prefer Cripps to NVB if you don’t have him. Crows have a very nice draw coming up

Cyril is Delicious

I like NVB but won’t Thompson being coming back, will mean less points for NVB??

I N Pieman

Will appreciate in price faster than Cripps regardless. And good JS

SC Virgin

Reasonably happy with team. Thing of doing either:

TBC – Bont, Cripps – NVB

Goodes – Hamling/Goddard as have all back line rooks, Clark – Bont (leaving TBC as ruck cover in fwd line and keeping cripps)

Thoughts? Want Bont as see him as f6, m8 keeper.

@AusSports84

I started with Bont, if I hadn't he would be the first trade I made this week. The best thing about him is his tackling power. Defence first is always a great indicator of SC scoring.

SC Virgin

Anyone else have a theory on this one? Really need some help.

@AusSports84

G'day Lek loved your work mate.

I'm taking a punt on Shiel this week, Gaz to Shiel actually. I see a 21 year old Chris Judd all over again and at $500K will not miss out.
Option B is either Goodes to Rance or Cripps to NVB.
Thoughts?
Appreciate any feedback.
Cheers

Redd

Ya gotta risk it for the biscuit im debating over pretty much the same trades ive got fasolo instead of goodes but i think the goodes to rance trade is better as hes up 40k this week so youll only miss out on 30k by not getting NVB and youll have to trade NVB to a premo later anyway so youll most likley save yourself a trade aswell,

General Soreness

GAJ to Shiel is ok. Option B's are questionable. Not sure they will produce what is required. Have you considered Cripps to Bont and swing fwd with DPP? i.e. if you have Lambert forward.

Glenn O'Grady

What are your thoughts on Gaz, is it unrealistic to hold him for a week and take advantage of price rise rookies and grab a premo that has dropped price next week?

Redd

Unfortunately he must go mate

I N Pieman

You might find Pendles doesn’t get up this week. Can’t have them both on the pine. Must go

youngster

Trade him, you need to get points on the board.

General Soreness

How disastrous are your rookies?

Matthew

It would be beneficial to look at your structure before making this decision. Will having Gary on the bench severely limit your output by forcing you to play a rookie like Touk Miller, who will only score 30-40? If so, I'd look at giving him the metaphorical boot, and look at either an ultra premium like Fyfe or Pendles, or slightly lower to a Sloane or JPK. However, if you have a strong midfield with 5 premiums and 3 good scoring rookies like Ellis-Yolmen, Vandenberg, Heeney, or even Rich, you could look at the option of leaving Ablett on the bench for a round.

Relies heavily on your structure though.

@supercoach_101

S trading shiel or rich a bad idea i like the look of them and price rise will be handy

General Soreness

Mate, all depends on structures, purpose, other issues. Price rise is handy along with scoring output, but what value do you put on trades? every action should be to improve your cash stores or scoring output. Do you have GAJ or another must trade out?

Matthew

dont go chasing previous scores. both are good but unless you're convinced they will continue pumping out 100+ then id look at more consistent options

brucies pasted jocks

why do you say their price rises will be handy?

you trade people in to keep don't you?

or do you mean you will trade them in then trade them out and use 4 trades in total?

brucees pasted jocks

why do you say the price rise will be handy?

don't you trade people in to keep them?

or do you mean you will trade them in and trade them out and use 4 trades?

FearTheBeard

Guys need a bit of advise.

Rance, Smith, McDonald, Docherty, Hooker, Savage?

Who the hell do I take in can afford any defender and have Shaw,Kelly,Newnes and the rookies.

derek

have another look at Grant Birchell. it was his first game for the year, had 25 disposals (19 by foot). Hawks were looking at giving it to him to clear out of defence. $477k and only in 2% of teams. could be a big POD.

General Soreness

Why so desperate to get one in? The ones you have are fine.

FearTheBeard

I don't need Goodes as he is sitting on the bench and want to strengthen there as I feel it's my weakest part.

I'm leaning towards Smith but if not cleared Rance or Hooker?

eatemalive

Agree with GS, I see the Mids as the line that needs correction unless you have the best Rooks,no Ablett ect

FearTheBeard

Mids Sloane, Fyfe, Lewis, Rich, Watson, Vandaberg, CEY, Heeney, Miller, Cripps (willhold for is week and ass next week if no good), Lambert

Rucks – Mummy, Minson

Forwards – Gray, Swan, Franklin, Martin, Hogan, Clark, Salem, Lamb

As I said very happy outside defenders though with either Brodie Smith or Hooker or Rance I then can put out

Shaw, Kelly, Newnes, Oxley, Saad with McIntosh & Brown as cover which makes me much more happy then Goodes on the bench and another rookie playing.

The question I am asking is who is the community convinced for Defenders?

I really am tossing up. I was locking Smith in and still is unless he isn't listed. Though Hooker, Rance are confusing me.

Then Savage and McDonald cheaper though maybe not perms? Uneasy on Doherty?

I'd love some input on who they would take?

Tylo

I would narrow it down to Rance, Birchall, or Smith.

Bill

Pendlebury left training early with his left ankle strapped. Not looking good. CARNAGE

CJay

No doesn't sound good. What's the source for this info Bill?

derek

game is Friday night. Less time to recover. not looking good.

General Soreness

Pendles recuperative powers are second to none.

Sana

Buckley reckons he's OK

Boggers

they don't use pain needles for training, a quick jab and away he goes .. let's hope he doesn't have a fit of the Micky McGuanes from a few years (decades even, old boy!) back!

Hoops

What's your opinion??

Goodes to Oxley & GAJ to Sloane,JPK or Lewis
Newnes to Rance & GAJ to Sloane, JPK or Lewis
Bartel to Bont & GAJ to Sloane, JPK or Lewis

Suggestions

General Soreness

Option 1 in my opinion provides cash and better scoring.

The reason I see it as better than the other options – Newnes to Rance too sideways without increasing cash or scoring output much.

Bartel is a keeper forward. Bont will provide cash but not a keeper. = 2 trades for cash of say $150K max. you will get $150K going down to Oxley with 1 trade.

Hoops

Thanks General

Rick Grimes

Which 3 of these would you start with?

NVB, CEY, Heeney, Vandenberg, Sheed, Cripps (if named)

eatemalive

On exposed form you would go in the order that you have written it

Adsmeister

Agreed. You could flip a coin on Heaney and Vandenberg.

Rick Grimes

What risk is Shiel to cop the tag with all the midfield guns around him?

@AusSports84

IMO none. Griffen Ward and Trelor all ahead of him.
Hence I'm flirting with Gaz to him. I just don't have the guts!

derek

a lot of focus on players who are going to increase in value and people are jumping on. Before you go chacing a bit of a cash increase and last weeks scores; make sure you have the right rookies first. You will make a lot more from a rookie (percentage) than you will from a premium or mid-pricer.

secondly, only trade in someone who you actually want. Plenty of people are trading in mid-pricers because that is all they can afford at the moment. Hold your money and wait for the time you can get the player you really want.

Thirdly, we are so focused on players who are rising in price, we should be looking at players who are going to be falling in price, has the same net affect.

There are plenty of (about to) falling premiums to watch who will be dropping in price over the next few weeks. If you can hold onto your cash now and not let it burn a hole in your pocket, you can look at getting some falling premiums in a few weeks time:

Malceski
Boomer Harvey
T Boak
Big Boy McEvoy
Dal Santo
J Selwood
M Murphy
D Beams
B Goddard
Sandi
L Parker
M Priddis
J Macrae
Chappy
Minson
Maric

General Soreness

Lek great work again mate, your Woodstock inspired wardrobe only makes it better.

Brook

Thinking of trading my R2 Minson down to the bont and swinging TBC into R2 for a few weeks. Will have $80k in the bank as insurance to go to Lycett if TBC is a no show on coming weeks. Will upgrade fwd rookie to fallen ruck ASAP to restore swing set. Feels a bit risky but only way I can really get my hands on the bont. Thoughts? Haven’t seen many others suggesting this approach

Locked and Loaded

Wait one more week on Bont just really need to see how he goes against better sides. Not saying he won't do well but I think we need to be smart and see before changing the whole structure of our team.

Locked and Loaded

I will be jumping on NVB this week for Cockatoo. Jumped on Pendles last week for Rockliff and honestly I think he will play probably just had a lighter session today why risk him in training? Wondering whether to go JPK or Heppell for Gaz I have this feeling deep down that Heppell is about to explode

CJay

Heppell is on the way up but JPK is already proven over many seasons.
JPK for mine.

Locked and Loaded

I agree JPK is the safest option although there is thus reason in particular I am leaning towards Heppell. There are striking similarities between the the Wolf and Heppell's development. In 2013 Fyfe averaged 106 and his ceiling was 138 and in 2014, well we all know what he did in 2014!! Heppell in 2014 had an average of 106 with a ceiling of 133 and this year has started against Hawthorn and arguably the next best side in the comp, Sydney in horrible conditions and is averaging 112. Fyfe exploded in his 5th year Heppell is now in his 5th year. I know they are not in the same mould although as Fyfe does Heppell is beginning to determine the outcome of games. I think I have talked my self into Heppell. I like JPK and have had him before but he can frustrate you and cost you when yo need him most. Proven premiums have alredy upset me this year a POD is what I am looking for.

Rick Grimes

Heppell I really like. I'm confident he will average 115ish and be very consistent. He is unlikely to go up in value by much, if at all, this weekend, so I'm going to hold fire for another week and then reassess. If Beams stinks it up again, I may sideways to him.

G

Can you please explain the captains loophole

Rick Grimes

Need a non-playing reserve for starters. Ideally playing late in the round. You then put that player on the field with the C on them. Make sure the reserve you have for that line is playing and has the E on them. Then place the V on a player who you think might go large – he'll need to be playing earlier in the round. If that player goes well, you leave it as is and you take the V and E scores. If he goes poorly, you take the C off your non-playing reserve and try your luck on someone else. Here's an example from my team:

On field rucks are Mummy and Lucey
Nicnat is my reserve
Lucey has C (Cats play Sunday but he won't)
Sloan has V (he's playing Saturday)

If Sloan goes well, say 120+, I do nothing. If he doesn't I switch the C to Fyfe and hope for better. I can also move Nicnat into the field, but that is not essential for it all to work.

This trick will also work for any line where you have a non-starter. eg, my D8 won't play, but I have Oxley and Ibbottson contesting two positions. The draw works out that my D8 plays last game of the round this week, so I will put him on the field with Oxley as E. If Oxley plays well I take his score, if not I bring in Ibbotson and try my luck.

Hope this helps and doesn't over confuse.

CJay

Well explained Rick.
G – grab yourself a $3 pdf of the Jock Reynolds magazine. Explains captains loophole and much much more.

Thanks Rick and CJay

Nat_Fyfe07

What is everyones thoughts on trading:

Ivan Maric to Brodie Grundy.

Maric will drop price, will Grundy will go up, plus will bank over 200k cash

Thoughts?

Rick Grimes

Grundy appears a much better player this year. Ruck rules seem to suit him. It's still a small sample size but you may get better bang for your buck in other lines.

northernsoul74

Just read on another forum that Bont didn't train yesterday and was seen with his calf in a compression bandage. No idea if true, or how serious but keep an eye out for news.

dallas

yeh my source says he will be out for 2-3 weeks strained his calf

brucies pasted jocks

always check the AFL sites or clubs twitter- forums is just a whole lot advice and smoke and mirrors.

gordo

goodes to bruce or hunt? and is it worth going newton to nvb

Rick Grimes

Goodes out = yes. The other one seems sideways and is not essential.

Matthew

id get goodes out, but for neither of those options. both have had one good game, and you'd be chasing previous scores. look at rookies like oxley, saad and mcintosh if you dont have one of them. if you have all of them, think about upgrading him to a midpricer

gordo

Have all of them and only have 300,000 to spend on getting Goodes out they will both sky rocket in price after a couple rounds even with scores of 60
