Community! Lekdog here with some mo’ supercoach news…

For round 5 I did a Facebook Q and A, have a look and see if I answered your questions.

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.

OldOcker

Do you use toilet paper to clean that facial hair?

Old Mate

Goddard or JPK a higher priority this week?

OldOcker

Both with the round 12 bye, Depends on team structure but keep byes in mind.
I prefer JPK at this stage.

Arny95

I had the same decision to make this week.
Was either going salem to goddard or heeney to Kennedy/Parker
Went with JPK

OldOcker

Arny95, Very decisive in your decision there, Good onya, Hope it's the right one. I would have made the same decision.

Charlesy

Faced with the same call I went Floggard as a dpp and now have 5 forward premo keepers. The other reason was to wait a little longer to see if I can get Gaz and/or Rocky in the mids down the track

Holty

Not sure if you will pick up JPK for any cheaper so I would grab him.

Locked and Loaded

Don't believe JPK is a must this season better options to be had

Charlesy

Holty, I’m not convinced about jpk yet mate. Looking into the crystal ball and with no one injured and in grand final tomorrow I’d be looking at this midfield. Fyfe Pendles Selwood Sloane Lewis ( I have those 5 plus griffin at the moment). Think I’ll end up trading griffin out for Ablett or Rockliff. That is 7 keepers. Number 8 is jpk Heppell Watson etc etc. who knows? There will be heaps of different thoughts here and lots of variables. May even have sidebum in there.

throttlefinger

With the look at the end, I can only hope you made it there in time.

Solid Q&A. Following advice with Griff. Wait a week and if doesn't go ton, swing to JPK.

Still waiting for the bowler…

Jambo

JPK has a break even of 105. He will make this. JPK won't come any cheaper than 547k. Trade Griffen for JPK now, don't wait.

throttlefinger

Think you're right, Jambo. Was going to wait but even if Griff hits BE, still going down in a next couple weeks. Thanks bud for the push.

General Soreness

Bring out the bowler……………..

throttlefinger

Has to happen before the season's over, General.

General Soreness

Agree, might spam next Q&A.

Girdle

Nice one, Lekdog! Yours is about the only news I watch these days!

With all the Suns injuries/club suspensions, Josh Glenn also looks a decent downgrade option in mids. Still got another week before the bubble, but if you simply have to do it, looks look ke him or McKenzie like you said.

Girdle

* looks like him. Damn auto correct wtf!?

SideBySidebottom

Is your Auto Correct Polynesian?

Redd

Hey lekdog keep up the good work. I myself am bringing in D.Mckenzie after taking K.Mcintosh to the slaughter i know he still has a bit of cash to make but wanna see how J.Glenn goes this week and if good bring him in for Heeney next week. Im also gonna part ways with Salem and bring in Brendon Goddard what you think? As for ideas for your show maybe you could do a fan team analyzer where fans submit there team and you provide perceived strengths weaknesses ideal trades and overall rating. Could be good just an idea. Cheers mate

Sarah

I love that idea Redd!! I'd love to get my team analysed, I think we could all learn a lot by seeing that every week!

Redd

Cheers sarah

OldOcker

Great idea Redd, If the young genius can find the time it could be a very useful exercise.
I analyse my own team every week to keep my mind focussed and not stray from my Plan for the year.

Redd

Cheers Ock

Holty

Hi Redd. Understand bringing in Goddard but dont understand the Mckenzie move. You state you want to have another week to look at Glenn before bringing him in which I will do the same but you want to pull the trigger on Mckenzie who as well has only played one game. Wouldn't it be wise to wait another week?

jewels

Some of us still need to make some money unfortunately 🙁

Redd

Hey Holty i think Mckenzie looked pretty good on the weekend and im confident he'll play more footy, not so sure about glenn although with bennel and maetera suspended it will give him a chance to grab a spot in the suns side. I was gonna trade Heeney for Mckenzie originally but dont wanna miss the downgrade option in my backline I.e when Kamdyn Mcintosh plateaus next week there may not be a viable down grade option in the backline if i have Mckenzie already selected in my mids. Then next week i can downgrade heeney he wont lose any cash cos hes injured and turn D.Rich into Pendles.

Leon

be careful with dmac, highly rated but richo seems the type of offer them a couple of games and then back to the seconds. Glenn on the other hand is older in a mans body and playing for a side that has lost their best 4 midfielders. If you need to make a downgrade I would tend to look at glenn. Also comes down to what you plan for next week. If next week is a paint (up and down) two trade week then perhaps you will need to go a week early

Juzzy

Great video as always Lek.

Salem to Goddard seems to make perfect sense for me.

Depending on team selection I may be very tempted by Heeney to Glenn this week as it will give the potential down and up trades next week.

Enjoy the Little Creatures. Great drop.

Leon

was thinking along these lines also….. will monitor heeney and if he is not named I will swoop. Great JS for glenn after the internal suspensions….

OldOcker

Good Onya Lek, Keep pouring that genius out mate,
You even drink the right grog, We might have one together one day.

Cheers.

OldOcker

PS: As long as you won't try and force me into a conversation about Carlton FC.
Carlton Dry is another story.

Have they approached Bomber yet?

Juzzy

Bellchambers. Good call Hold. I may upgrade to Ryder as a F6 later.
Hold Griffin. He is getting paid way too much money to be this crap.
He will come good to vindicate his bulging wallet.

Mac

What to do with James Kelly?

OldOcker

Mac, I think you will be looking at a trade there.
News is that he has a ruptured testicle and will be out for the next month. So I would be looking at some options.
I would say 4 weeks minimum which is too long to hold him.

My Opinion.

Sarah

I'm just benching him at this stage as I have trading/upgrading priorities. McIntosh is playing well enough to cover him for the time being.

Tyler

I really want hold both trades this week, but some of those fallen premiums are too good a deal to pass up

Josh

Ok guys so

I don’t think I’m going to make any trades this week but next week I’m thinking of going heeney down to Glenn then trade Salem out for Goddard or someone around that

Also want to get pendles in but the best way to do for me is to trade griffin for him which I’m not so keen to do,

Thoughts?

Northernsoul74

This would mean you couldn’t get McKenzie next week.

Phil

Salem to Glenn, Griffen to Fyfe…..done

Tyler

I would hold off on those trades till next week mate. Glenn isn’t guaranteed any more games, salem can go up a bit more and it also gives you another week to think about griifin. He will come good

Jimmy

gonna make a trade to get either Buddy or Dustin, who am i better off picking?

UDA

Dusty

Leon

buddy but he is still to bottom out IMO. dusty will just frustrate. Why not BJ? bargain at that price

Jimmy

Yeah I’ve locked Goddard, he is a must imo

derek

Whose place did Glenn take in the Suns team last week, I forget. Just wondering about his JS (this week he is safe)

OldOcker

Derek, Pretty sure he is in for Swallow and his job security looks pretty good with the injuries and out of form players that they have at the moment.
Buying him next week if all goes to plan.

Cheers.

Matt

Hi OldOcker, do you think it’s ok to downgrade to Mckenzie or glen this week to allow for getting the other one next week and using the cash to upgrade? I currently don’t have the cash to make upgrades and I still have goodes on the bench

Spifflicator

Derek, The Suns have 16 players out this week, so take your pick. 5 will come back in the next week then nothing for a while. Barring injury or a total spud job he’s safe for a few weeks.

DramaLlama

Love your work Lekdog!

Don

Who is a better option out of Hannebery and JPK at this stage?

Brillsy21

JPK

Don

Why?

Sarah

He's got the history of being a consistent supercoach premium. Hannerbery's best past average is 101 so he doesn't have the proven history just yet of being an elite scorer.

derek

I love watching JPK play. You don't see him much in general play, but as soon as there is a stoppage he appears! the more stoppages the better he scores.

randomcliche

Proven consistency and price.

Danners16

JPK more of a chance of him doing better in the long run

Darren (McLovin)

Rich to Goddard and then move Goddard to the forward line?
Or Rich to a premo mid? ($580 spend)

Holty

I wouldn't jump to soon on Rich mate. He is averaging 96 with more cash to make. If you want Goddard, I'd be looking elsewhere

Danny

I’ve identified a few options this week

1. Simple Bellchambers to Goddard

2. TBC to Goddard & Newton to JPK (not much Cash left)

3. TBC to Ziebell Newton to Pendles

4. TBC to Goddard Rich to Pendles

5. Hold

Do think Rich will have 90+ the next to weeks so happy to keep him for the foreseeable future,

Danny

Could also go Newton for Pendles, JPK or Goddard also.

Sarah

I think just bring in one premium for Newton. I'm assuming Bellchambers is there for ruck cover, so why trade him?

Danny

Thanks Sarah, that’s probably the way I’ll go, TBC is there for back up just wish he’d out another 10-15 Pts a week

Ethan

Hold TBC, his greatest value is his Ruc/Fwd, So if on of your ruckman go down. your covered, plus he's a decent stepping stone

Danners16

4. If TBC is not your backup ruck

Jay

Might be better to hold Rich – he'll go up in value a couple more weeks – essentially enough so you can downgrade (or sideways) to Rocky come close to bye rounds or in R12

General Soreness

Don't shave from Movember 2011!! Hahahaha Gold!

@themisfitsSC

made me spit my coffee that call

Dee

Griffen OUT, JPK or Parker in?

derek

sideways trade imo.

I would hold Griffin and use him to trade up to Rocky or Gaz.

Ethan

Parker still has a week left to cheapen up. Hold one more week for both

Danners16

Don't trade out Griffen unless everything is going well for you

dognino

Griffins averaging more than Parker , why would you even consider that trade? I'm stuck with both griffin and Parker and wish to SC god I never picked either

Daz

Hey Community, looking to drop Salem n Ben Newton for 2 premos, 471k in the chest at this stage was looking at buddy and dahlhaus via DPP- looking for some POD action, wanted JPK n dal but was 10k short, good trade? Not sold on franklin, but don’t want Goddard as everyone is getting him this wk. 26 trades left.

Sarah

You could go Dangerfield and Dahlhaus?

SideBySidebottom

Can't see Dangerfield in the top ten Midsfielders.

derek

Franklin is playing very well. I am always worried about key forwards, but he does seem to be an exception to the rule. Was waiting for his price to drop some more and get him as a buffalo bounce trade around the byes.

OldOcker

Daz, If you can afford to go up to 2 premo's that you are happy with that is a good move.
BUT if you are looking at dal (Dal Santo)? it maybe a good thing you were 10k short because dal is not playing he is out injured.
Sometimes the point of difference that you have is the time at which you bring a player into the team or trade them out, Not just the fact that everyone may end up with the same player.

jewels

He ment Dahlhaus mate 🙂

derek

I think he meant Dahlhause from the dogs, not dal santo

OldOcker

Cheers blokes I am getting too bloody old for this abbreviation stuff.
They should outlaw us blokes from using computers.

David

It’s okay mate I thought he meant nick dal too

Gareth

Thinking of trading in Michael Barlow. Do people think he will average over 100 again or should I wait for better options (Sloane)?

Trab Pukcip

Would steer clear of this one Gareth unless his role changes or there are some injuries. Is not playing in the guts this year. I wouldn't read much into his good score on the weekend as spent more time in the guts due to Pav and Walters going off (fyfe had to go forward a fair bit). Cant see him averaging more than 90-95 if his current role continues. Just my opinion.

derek

Ross Lyon is freo's coach…..need I warn you again?

Gareth

Thanks for the heads-up on Barlow's role. Desperate to get rid of one of my midfielders. Do you think Parker would be a better option?

Ethan

barlow is a ball magnet keep, just unlucky at the moment not to get more ball

Danners16

Wait on Sloane, I hear rumors that Barlow is being playing in a new role which is why he isn't scoring as great

Mister_Spock

Love your work Lekdog!

Community, should we be ditching Newnes for McDonald, or is this just a wasted sideways trade? Will Newnes come good? Am I better off waiting for my defensive rookies to fatten up and then upgrade them to McDonald, even if that means he'll be up around $530-550?

Ethan

Newnes seems like to be doomed to average not higher than 80 for this season he gets balll but cant use it efficiently
I would stay away from mcdonald. Key defenders… we dont see them score big and consistant, simmo and smith are coming cheap

derek

missed the boat on McDonald. key position player, stay away.

Danners16

Newnes to McDonald sound good or even Pittard

Rawkus11

I like the Pittard option. Very consistent!

SideBySidebottom

You'd better hope he's not consistent. From 2011 to 2014 he hasn't averaged over 67. If you think he's a breakout contender then that's a different call.

Rawkus11

That is what i meant side. He's having a consistent year and i'm considering him heavily. definite breakout year!

demon

newnes looking like the next shaun atley atm, promised a breakout, but delivers a low ceiling and scores consistently around 70-80

dognino

I'm looking to pick up 2-3 R11 bye premos over the next few weeks , as My bye structure is currently 6-12-12.

Looking at Sloane in the mids as his price drops, up fwd dusty and one of either Bont or dollhouse. Is it too late to jump on the Bont? BE of 109 , so should still be able to get him around 500k ? Thoughts community?

Got my eye on rocky too, but that lad has to get on the park without injuring himself first

Ethan

i would get on asap if you need to. After this week his low score of 82 will be irrelavent meaning his BE will drop to about 80, depeding if he scores 100 this week

Danners16

It is not too late for the Bont, he hasn't gone over 500k yet

Locked and Loaded

Didn't elect to put Tarrant in last week only because of injury history it might've been a bad move but was just too uncertain about him. Salem to Webb this week looks like a great downgrade option and then can upgrade B.Goodes or Heeney. Thoughts?

Ethan

not too many rookie options left, if webb is your last hope then go to him

Locked and Loaded

Also thoughts on Burgoyne as a fallen premium with Lewis and Hodge out will need to lift amd could play himself into some solid form

Ethan

going to need to see some peformances first before getting him in

The Ranger

Very tempted by Burgoyne

@themisfitsSC

so I have cracked it this week and used one trade….. treloar out pendles in….. big head butt of the table as I write this

The Ranger

Morning all,
Is Judd – Goddard/Franklin a good move?
Goddard/Frankiln are both keepers in my opinion which Judd never was plus Judd will prob lose aniother 20K this week having already dropped 16K.
I don't have anty rooks that I'm ready to cull as I jumped from Salem to Tarrant last week and all the rest of them prob have another week in them at least.
Thoughts?

Ethan

question is will franklin bleed more cash or will he consistantly score 90+ from now on

Jeremy

Dahlhaus v Franklin. Please discuss

Danners16

Dahlhaus, Franklin will leak more cash according to the Buffalo Jump in the JR magazine

Ethan

Dahlhaus playing as an inside midfielder, vs a key forward

Danners16

Hey community! Just wondering what to do with Hodge. Hold OR Trade to rookie OR Sideways trade to a premo
Thoughts would be great thanks

Ethan

unless you can deal with 3 weeks. i would trade

Mitch

Whats Mckenzie's job security looking like? wait till hes on the bubble or get in this week?

northernsoul74

Wait. Lever at the Crows might get a game this week so could also be worth a look at as a def rookie.

Pavos

Should I cull Salem and go pendles or hold and get him at the byes

Danners16

Do it, you will need Pendles

Bluetackle

I have griffen and nathan jones finding it hard to hold them both seen as i have the cash to get rid of one to pendles any ideas on who would be the best to cull im leaning more towards jones as he is set to drop a heap more cash

Danners16

Hold Jones, he is doing well if you take out the 40's score. If you have room to cull Griffen, do it

Adam

Brodie Grundy, can he keep it up all season or not?

Danners16

He could

SideBySidebottom

Witts is close to a return from injury, Grundy seemed to be number one last year but Witts surpassed him. It's impossible to know without being in the inner sanctum.

Danners16

Goodes to Def premo, Salem can still wait

Aaron Harvey

Has anyone else heard about dayne beams apparently he has hurt his knee, it was on some website but he is not on the injuiry list so is it a rumour anyone with more info can u please reply

Aaron Harvey

What has happened to jackson macrae, because the dogs are dominating he was smashing preseason, is it just because he cant handle the tag.

Aaron Harvey

How many points do u think u have to be off the leader to still be within a chance of 50k

Tom

no more than a few hundred i would say

Ethan

only a few hundred, the bye rounds are so important as its where it make or breaks your season

Ethan

if you can wait another week, then cull goodes

Nato

Im tossing up between upgrading Salem to Dahl / Dusty / Buddy or trading Goodes to a def premium.
I dont have any cover in my def, but there arent any decent upgrade options i can see in that line so a fwd upgrade should be better in thoery (unless there's a late out in my def). i just dont want to pay top $$ for any of the defenders this year

What are the communities thoughts on this one?

Tulendeena

Van Berlo > Glenn
Salem > Pendles

wait a week or not?

Spifflicator

Go now

northernsoul74

Go for it. NVB was ready to be culled last week so get him out.

Spifflicator

Advice needed community! Current team

Shaw Higgins Gibson Newnes Oxley Saad – McIntosh Goodes
Fyfe Lewis Sloane Treloar Griffen Cripps VDB CEY – Miller Heeney Blakely
Goldy Grundy – OBrien
Swan Franklin Gray McCarthy Hogan Salem – Clark Krakouer

Considering removing Salem & Goodes, although Goodes has been useful as an expensive loophole.

Option 1 – Double Up
Salem>Ziebell
Goodes>Pittard

Option 2 – 1up 1 down
Salem>Goddard
Goodes>McKenzie

Option 3 – Sack Griffen!
Griffen>Pendlebury
Salem> Ziebell

Option 4 – Double Down
Goodes>Mckenzie
Blakely>Glenn

I think I like the first two most of all, especially option 1. Would then likely do 1 or 2 downgrades next week to build cash again.

Any ideas other ideas also gratefully received.

Thanks

northernsoul74

Do you see Ziebell and Pittard as genuine top 6 in their respective positions? If so, go for it, if not it seems you are just trading for the sake of it. You're better of waiting a week or so until you can afford the players you really want, not just the ones you can afford this week.

SideBySidebottom

Agree with NS74. Like the first leg of Option 3 but not the second.

Ryan

I'm thinking about trading out

Salem for Glenn (because I would have traded him in next week anyway)
Griffin for Pendlebury

Or should I go for a Goddard/JPK this week and a Pendlebury later in the season?

Rawkus11

Wait a week on Glenn

Holty

Does anyone know Taylor Hunts role this year? Is he playing as a tagger? I started with him as I thought he would score well but the last 2 weeks he has struggled.

Mitch17

Well done Lekdog superb as always. Now with the hodge situation should I just trade him for houli or pittard or should just keep on the bench for 3 weeks and play mcintosh or n.brown instead ? And should I get rid of newnes or keep him ? What about a swallow keep or trade ? Cheers

randomcliche

Just seeking to confirm whether there is any mid season review of positions in supercoach before I trade out Rich. Also of note is Mitch Clarke position change in DT.

Spifflicator

No changes mid season SC or DT only Fantasy

randomcliche

Thanks

creeky23

Higgins and Lamumba in DEF? hold or trade bait?

SideBySidebottom

Trade Lumunba.

westcoasttillidie

Supercoach first timer here. Dont know what the hell to do with Lycett. Brought him in thinking he'd step up with big cox gone but instead nic nats looking solid while lycetts been dropped and adam simpson looks keen on mcguiness and sinclair. I'm thinking of moving bellchambers into R2 and picking up mcguiness on the bubble for my forward line to make some cash and cut my losses on lycett. Didnt wanna use TBC too early but thats what he was there for. Or should i just chuck lycett into F7 for a week or two to see how things pan out? Thanks

northernsoul74

I'd wait and see what the Josh Kennedy injury does for him.

westcoasttillidie

yeah good thinkin i forgot about that cheers

David

I’m am new to supercoach so could someone please explain this to me. My team, like most has about 14 rookies. Around the byes we trade most of these fattened cows half up to premos and the other half down to rookies. Do these rookies brought in at the byes stay in our side for the rest of the season and are used at bench cover?

Leon

yes

tom

Birchall or Enright?

Dave2008

Tough call I’d go Birchall just with Enrights age. What’s the price difference?

Matthew

I'd go Enright because he's just so consistent. With the defence as weak as it is this year, consistency is key. Always scores between 85-105
