Chic…Uh Lekdog’s Check In?

Published by Lekdog on

LekdogJock and the crew have sent Chicko on a fact finding mission to America, there he will meet up with community member Throttlefinger and together they will meet up with infamous baseball statistician Bill James and crack Supercoach forever…

During the bye rounds we get 3 trades, this round we get 2 trades. That’s a total of 5 trades available pre-round 12, anyone we trade in from here WILL miss at least one week.
I will be making one trade before round 11 finishes (The Quad Wines IN this week) and then 3 before round 12. I will not be trading during round 11 however…

Here’s this weeks question:

How many trades do you plan on making before round 11 ends?

Rocky has a round 11 bye …. Keep him until round 12 ??? May even be back after there bye? Round 12 is the nasty one for me

Jambo

Yes. I reckon he will be back in round twelve. Even after breaking three ribs, he scored 103.

Tophawk

I agree. And hopefully, this time he will wear a protective brace to protect his ribs! I will keep him.

THE SALTSHAKER

At $450k he is a def hold but yes does make rnd 12 even worse

carpark reporter

ahhh sorry but rcoky is out for 6 weeks….. there is no way he will be back in 3 or 4 weeks….. he will be out for 6-8 weeks and if his doctor let him come back any earlier than that then he should loose his license and get sued for mal practise.

You are smoking more than the peace pipe if you think Rocky will be back in under 6.

And why you traded in the glass cannon is the first question you should ask yourself. Rocky is always injured or missing parts of games and getting knocked out.

r2d2

Short check in Lek haha, but words of wisdom there for sure

Digga

Downgraded Oxley and upgraded krakouer to selwood, then next week cripps down which will leave me with 680k. Are these smart trades or should i hold off?

Matt

hold off on oxley until round 12, will be needed for points despite dropping about 50k

finsharkey

Not sure why you concede that much cash…

Sarah

You need to understand Oxley's purpose in our teams… it's to make cash then make way. Dropping $50k is unacceptable, he has to go now. It's too much of a risk that he won't hit his BE.

Dann

A decent score from him will see him hold his price, when he scored 31 he scored 116 the next week when he scored 47 he scored 148 the next week.

Dean

Digga having $680k in your war chest equates to having less premiums in your team which is just absurd, I think anything over 300k is overkill and your ranking will only suffer.

It's vital to remember 3 trades can be made each bye round, why not downgrade Oxley to Hamling providing he is playing obviously which im sure he will be, in.round 12 that is when he will be on the bubble.

If you see Hamling listed to play this week and hypothetically speaking he goes out there and gets injured then its a massive waist of a trade, plus you get the added bonus of another free look at someone like hamling, in fact it couldn't be scripted any better for us. Not to mention you will then have Oxley playing for you in round 11 and scoring you points.
However that being said, IF Oxley is the SUB this week then fair enough trade Oxley in early because he will drop quite allot in price if he ends up being the SUB.

Hope that helps.

Ethan

i cant help it but *waste. Even if oxley has another poor score we only have to deal with it for another week before his bye. The only reason to trade him out would be if your round 11 bye is extremely friendly for you. Some may say that bye bringing in a player with the same bye round works but that means you have one less player in round 12 rather than trading him out in round 12

Sarah

I completely disagree on holding onto Oxley. He's only in the team to make money and the risk is high that he will lose significant cash over the next two weeks. The time to cash him in is now to bank the cash he's made. He's been subbed out 3 times this year, why take the risk?

Hendo

*can’t

Jack

By*
If you’re going to be that guy, you’d want to get it right.

Hugo

Smart trades. Who for oxley may I ask

Digga

I'm going to trade Oxley for brooksby by moving goddard to defense and read to the foward

I N Pieman

I’m not sure I agree with holds your trades to the byes. I havnt been. Trade with the byes in mind for sure. But the name of the game is to get to full premo asap. Trade ass off

Nuggety

I’m with you INP. Gotta pick up the right cows when they present not when it’s convenient for us. Same with fallen premos available at great value prices. Same deal again with jumping off cows who are gonna lose cash..Bang bang and suck it up during rounds 11 to 13.

I N Pieman

Absolutely nuggety. I think it’s a good week to wave the Ox goodbye. Starting to go backwards, has been subbed 3 times & has the round 12 bye. Given he won’t be in teams in a few weeks we should get rid of him now before he looses too much value. Plenty of fallen premo defenders to send him up to.

Nuggety

Still not too sure about upgrading in defense so fickle this year. I’m thinking about swinging dmac into def for ox. Lever and Kmac both doing enough for now and still have money to make. Then ox down to Dumont and Krak in the mids up to wines, Lewis or heppell, all good value. Keen to sure up the mids if we have to sit Rocky on the pine for a while. Thoughts?

@t_woof

Agree INP, time for Ox to go. He's been good, done his job.

And oh…..it's going to be sooooooooo good……BYE BYE GASSY CHAMBERS, get out of my team!!!!

Enrage!

Agree Pieman, I’m trying to get full premo ASAP, so all my trades have been upgrades or a rookie cull to fund an upgrade – only made one sideways / non positive trade and that was downgrading newnes.

So it is that bad that I only have 15 trades this week, with only 3 non premos left.

Assuming I paint the fence to replace those three I will have full premo (and hopefully win more games in my league, and increase overall rank).. With another 9 spare trades left for the second half of the season for injuries and any sideways trade.

Thoughts?

I N Pieman

G’day enrage. If you can make it to full premo (with the premos you really want) with 8 trades left then that’s a great result. How long should it take to do it? The answer is as quick as possible. I’ve had some LTI ‘s to deal with. 4 of them unfortunately which has slowed progress. Turning my attention to defence now. Part from
That only 2 vacant spots to fill.

Sarah

Agree 100%! I've been trading my ass off since the start!!

Locked and Loaded

Spot on INP defs agree. Need to have enough trades for injuries and tactical trades come finals. Make top 4 in leagues and you'll need 6 trades hopefully

Skindog

I agree Pieman, ive traded because ive had to, im short on trades compared to where I want to be,, crap year this year bring on 2016!!!!

chevvy

I havent structured my team around the byes like others have, im currently ranked 676. So im hoping not to fall too much in the bye rounds…

Swans2012

I hear you, I’ve been reading ass off to claw my way to 251 overall, this week the first one im seriously looking at the byes, think I should be ok ish…… Round 13 looking a bit shaky but might even do a bit of sideways then to keep up if need be. I’m trading rocky, no space for freeloaders during the byes…..

hedski

Yeah ive had itchy finger but after gaz bartel good luck wit injury and stacked rookies. Round 11 I’ll be offloading rich and cey can absord the donuts after that but facing 3 if not. Can hold trades till byes done then. Mayb dmac t hamling rnd 12.

hedski

Sry forgot to mention rocky in last week. Bench.

Cozza

Can anyone explain why we would do 3 trades leading into the round bye? I know the thought is to cull the cash cows, but you will only be trading someone in who will be missing a game during one of the bye weeks. Isn't a better strategy to hold trades in round 11, and then do 3 trades before round 12 and 13 to cull those cash cows who are about to have their byes and upgrade to premos who have also had their bye? Can't see the logic in trading prior to round 11

Derek

So you can go Bang Bang Bang, three premiums who had There byes in round 11.

If there isn’t 3 premium round 11 players, you don’t.

wayno1313

So before round 11 you cull the cash cows and stockpile cash, then after round 11 you trade in round 11 premiums as they have already had their bye

The Ranger

BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG.
5 bloody trades is what I"ll be doing.
Been holding off and holding off and saving trades and not going too early and all that crap and it's got me bloody nowhere!
Time to make some moves!

I N Pieman

I’m hoping your bro Sloane ranger is back this week. Listed as a test. Would seriously help with the rocky problem. Trade ranger. Having onfield rookies is a roller coaster. Clarke & Ox great examples. Killed me this week

The Ranger

Mummy, Pendles, Selwood, Griffen, Parker, JPK, Rich, Simpson.
Not one broke the ton. 593pts between them.
It's not just the rooks that are killing me!

Kebab.

Too many high BE’s this week, basically a must to cull some cows!

beezneez

Sloane is going to be cheaper after he's played his first game back so if he's back this week (possible but unlikely) I'm going to trade him in round 12 after Adelaide's bye or after his next game back. Also, waiting a week will give a chance to assess his form after fracturing his cheekbone. Win/Win.

The Ranger

Yep, Wines this week and Sloane the week after his bye.
Been rage trading for the past 24hrs. It's pointless and exhausting but makes me feel better.

adam

thoughts on clark to dahlhaus, miller to boston?
getting him this week because getting hamling next
thanks

Luke

i like the sound of that clark to dahlhaus trade, but i would wait until round 12 because dahlhaus has round 11 bye

Potato

i think its a disgusting trade

judd0

After rnd 11 its a good trade.

dean

What is everyones opinions on Mitch Wallis, If you remove his 12 he got from being injured, he is averaging 103.5 over 5 games, including a low score back from injury of 48, Has a really easy run after the bye, I think he might be good value

Phil

I've had him since Round 1 as a pod and reckon I've been extremely unlucky with him. The kids a jet. Doggies are gonna be some team in a few years time, one to rival the Suns and Giants I reckon.

dean

You were unlucky with his initial start, with getting injured, but two massive scores, and an easy run after byes, i think he will be great to have, i might pick him up, i started the year with wines, and traded him out, wish i had of held him to be honest.

Zak

I got him in this week after having a very big look at him last week, very happy with his 153!
And yes you are right. He got 15 when injured and had a 40ish game on his comeback game, but that was against freo. Every other game he has scored or very close to a 100. Contested beast.

marty

I looked at his numbers last week and I thought he was flying way under the radar and his injury had dropped his price. I took the risk and took him last week for Tarrant via a DPP. Getting his huge score and 55k price rise last week was very nice. I see him as my best fast upgrade to a reduced price Ablett a few weeks after the byes.

The Bont

Doggies' four weeks after the byes is fkn juicy

Avzmo

Mid season you do not want to be buying mid pricers, the only reason you would buy him is if you think hes a top 10 midfielder at year end, which im assuming your not alluding too. Waste of money for me.

Derek

I knew season was going to well. Had a choice last week of trading Cripps to either Buddy or Rocky.

It’s moments like that during the season you look back on and think what if?

Sammy primo's

Hey lek well im thinking making one trade this week either ollie wines or yeo in based on bye strategy im swaying towrds yeo based on how well west coast are going also in round 11 lek im am trading i have implented partly the jr mag stradgy with a few tweeks of course but will be downtrading 3 player in round 11 up 3 in round 12 and my lips are sealed on round 13 trades i have 20 trades left right now if i trade this week ill have 19 left would not trading make me fall further behimd hard to beat no1 overall sc name sammys primo’s please let me know what your thought are as i would consider your opionions and communitys thoughts

Mark Jenkins

Sorry, but you’re missing the one big piece here, in that there could be a few handy rookies on the bubble next week, after playing their 1st game last week, including Robinson, Boston & Brooksby. All 3 of these guys are either R12 or R13 bye players, and will have their first price rise in R11. So you HAVE to get them in R11.

Note: The other good rookie option is Hamling, but he does have the R11 bye, so he can wait until R12.

Nathan

Amon worth picking up. Looks a likely type and with no Cornes, he may feature consistently. A few low scores early…mmm.

r2d2

Thoughts on Oxley to hibberd and Cripps too wines ?

Sarah

Like it!

General Soreness

could be anywhere from 3-5 trades for me

WHERE IS THE BOWLER!!! GET LEK INTO A BOWLER!!!

throttlefinger

Add $10 to the Bowler Kitty, in honor of the General.

Azza

If you have Krakouer, you have to get rid of him.

noob

19 trades left. 43k in the bank. Would love some thoughts

Back: shaw, tmac, newnes, saad, oxley, Dmac (goodes, brown)

Mid: fyfe, beams, steven, JPK, parker, ebert, Vandenberg, CEY (rocky, heeney, glenn)

Ruck: maric, nic nat (read)

Fwd: gray, martin, swan, Tarrant, titch, clark (TBC, krak)

daniel

19 trades is a lot! Mids are looking good so start getting some more premos probably defense first, then fed. Use the byes to your advantage

judd0

19 is not a lot. It's around the amount you should have I've got 21.
If you were going to trade out anyone it would have to be krak.
However I would hold till the bye rounds.
You can probablly trade out Kmac, Lever, CEY after this week in preparation to go bang bang bang

Tom

Im looking at only downgrades in the coming weeks so when the byes hit I can go BANG BANG BANG upgrading to premos according on their byes.

is this smart?

daniel

Love the idea! Just be wary of your scores suffering with multiple rookies on field

T.J.M

Rocky 4 weeks

Cozza

Is that confirmed or your estimate? I wouldn't be surprised if they rest him this week becuase that will give him 2 weeks to recover with the bye the following week.

carpark reporter

more like 6-8 buddy. no way he will come back again. stupid doctor shouldn't have let him back so early and without a brace.

if any of you think rocky will this time return in under 6-8 weeks then you are living in lala land.

T.J.M

Thoughts on my team please. 80k in the bank.

Simpson, Shaw, Gibson, Newnes, Oxley, Saad, Lever, McIntosh
Fyfe, Selwood, JPK, Parker, Beams, Rocky, Treloar, CEY, Miller, Steele, McKenzie
Goldy, Maric, Read
Gray, Martin, Swan, Hogan, Tarrent, Clark, Lonie, Krak

Was thinking of going Oxley to Hamling and Clark to any forward premo. Was thinking either Titch or Dalhaus.

Thoughts?

Hubris

Good looking team!

Have you considered cutting Miller this week for Amon/Dumont? You can bring in Hamling before round 12 and miss his round 11 bye and pick between Oxley and Saad in case one of them comes up big in the next few weeks.

I like Dahlhaus a lot if you can afford him! If you're a bit light on, Zorko is only a touch over $400k.

Rob

Hey community!

Thoughts on my team? I have 86K in the bank.

BACK: Shaw, simpson, newnes, Hibbered, Lever,Saad ( mckintosh and hamling)
Mid: Fyfe, selwood, Gray, D.Mckenzie, Kennedy, Shiel, Cripps, Priddis( CEY, Krak, Blakely)
Ruck: Blicavs, Nicnat( read)
FWD: Roughy, Martin, Bont, Hogan, Franklin,Tarrant( Lonie and lambert)

Any suggestions?

Gryffindor

I'd say Hold Rob. Use Tarrant, Cripps, CEY, McIntosh, Lonie, Saad and Krak for byes and when their BE gets high double go one down one up or double upgrade during the byes. Sloan post rd 11 bye is looking delicious for example.

Tyler

Sloane planning to come back this week v carlton

Gryffindor

I'm aroused by his 162 BE and possibly getting him for 470/480k after his bye. I don't like having players from the same team in the same position but Danger and Sloan with Adelaide's form won't be an issue

Nicholas

Hey community,
Just wondering what i should do this week i have 4k in the bank and ranked top 3%. Was thinking maybe holding but rockliffe may be a problem. I am probably going to go tarrant/clark to dahlhaus/deledio and then go miller to glenn or another rookie. The only problem with this is that i will have to fill my mid with krak,dmac or the new rookie i bring in if either lewis or rokky dont play.

Def- shaw, taylor, saad,tmac, mcintosh, lever( leslie, hamling)
Mid- fyfe, priddis, selwood, grifen, lewis, rockliffe, miller, parker (cey, krak, d mckenz)
Ruck- goldy, nic nat (read)
Foward- gray, martin, franklin, goddard,swan, tarrant ( hogan,clark)

here is my bye structure:

Round 11- lever, rocky, cripps, lewis, martin, kmcintosh, hamling, cey-8 players out
Round 12- swan, goddard, fyfe, ibbo, miller, saad, leslie, franklin, dmac-9 players out
Round 13- selwood, clark, taylor, griffen, shaw, priddis, Hogan, krak, gold, Tarrant, nic nat, gray, read- 13 players out

Thanks for your help and time

carpark reporter

hey mate- rocky round 11- 8 players out?????

Try adding rocky to round 10, 12, 13, 14, and 15- most likely you can add rocky into rounds 16 and 17 as out also.

Traderlyf

no idea what trades to make this week… egh

Northernsoul74

Hold.

Antonio

Hi guys,

I’m looking at any ideas as to what to do next. I’m a little stumped at the moment. I’ve got 19 trades and only $13,100 in the Warchest.

Defence: Shaw, McDonald, Higgins, Newnes, Saad, Simpson (McIntosh, Lever)

Midfield: Fyfe, Dangerfield, Priddis, Pendlebury, Griffen, Cripps, Miller, Ellis-Yolmen (Krakour, Heeney, McKenzie)

Rucks: Mumford, Goldstein (Read)

Forwards: Gray, Swan, Goddard, Walker, Tarrant, TBC (Clark, Lonie)

Thanks guys!

Traderlyf

krak to dumont if hes named maybe? Krak's BE even is 109 so he'll drop a lot of cash this week if he evens plays

Joey Joe Joe

krak to Robinson, Boston or Dumont. ($150k made)
Tarrant ($318k) to Buddy

Sarah

Your midfield is very weak. You need to get some more premo mids in there.

@t_woof

This week is all about – Gassy's Gotta Go, get out of my team.

Thinking Oxley > Hamling (def would be – Hodge, Higgins, Newnes, Ibbotson, Saad, Lever // McIntosh, Hamling)

and Gas Chambers > Stef Martin to accompany Goldstein in the ruck.

Special mention to Jack Newnes, repaying the faith!
87, 95, 92, 117 the past month.

hedski

Get stef. Had him end of last year couldnt pass him up again. Gun

Gryffindor

Hahaha love the Gas Chambers nick name mate. Stef is still getting 120+ with Leuey in the team so i see no reason not to get him

@t_woof

Thanks lads, appreciate the feedback.

Stef Martin is at the top of my ruck want list now……Let's hope the teams are kind on Thursday night, and i can trade him in.

Tulendeena

Saad in doubt for sydney clash

Jack

What to do with Andrew Swallow?
And Upgrade Miller to Watson/Selwood/Wines??

Hubris

It's the perfect time to pick up Wines right now.
Selwood's cheap but you can probably wait a few weeks if you've got an Ellis-Yolmen or a Rich.

Gryffindor

Definitely agree to get wines. He'll score 100s most weeks and with Port starting to pick up form now is the time to get him

Davo

whats wrong with spending trades before the byes if we're culling cows at their peek and bringing in keepers

I N Pieman

Absolutely nothing

wayno1313

The issue is you are bringing in an additional premium player that will have a bye. You are better off bringing in premiums after they have played their bye so if you can it's much better to downgrade the rookies and then after round 11 bring in round 11 premiums. You can't always do this as it will depend on BE of your current rookies and how many games up coming rookies have played but be aware of your options

jack

who to bring in for belchambers already have goldy. i think martin will be no 1 ruck by seasons end but not sure about bringing him in at 573k

Jono

I have the same thoughts but going to bring in stef Martin rd12 after his bye! Martin comes up against mummy then rd12 TBC to Martin

Northernsoul74

Same.

david

Nic Nat

bob

who should i bring in for vandenberg? peendulbury selwood or danger field
and i also got dumont for touk miller

jack

vandenberg has a breakeven of like 19

bob

and i wanna upgrade him

Jess

Gotta go Pendles mate.

hedski

Danger

TheCompletePackage

Can't believe you're even considering Selwood.

BKW

Selwood will turn it around at some stage

Jess

Trade 1 – Ox to Hodge

Trade 2 – Miller to Dumont, or Miller to Wines or Tarrant to Buddy?

Gryffindor

I really like Hodge and Wines options. Wines will play well as Port seem to be gaining some form and Hodge will finish as the top averaging defender most likely and hopefully he doesn't cop an injury or resting

Buddy

If we traded Rockliff out should we hold for the 4 weeks he is expected to miss??

I N Pieman

Would be surprised if he misses 4. He has the bye next week. And he’s a tough bloke. Hold him if you can

T.J.M

Thoughts on Oxley and Clark to Hamling and any premo forward? Was thinking Titch. Thoughts?

Gryffindor

Good options. I'd look at either Goddard, Dahlhouse, Martin, Swan or Deledio before Titch as he doesn't have as bigger role at sydney as the other premos

mcleal10

go Deledio

Nick

Is everyone keeping their last midfield spot for gaz or not?

I N Pieman

No way. He will drop in price but not to the extent of rocky. When the time presents kill off your worst performing premo.

wayno1313

You can't do this I think as he is a while off. Maybe a sideways trade from Griffen once I see some form but at the moment I'm not thinking about Gaz as much as it kills me to say

david

Not, Lewis this week Slone week after!

@boltie_monster

worries about krak's spot in the side and vest as well as oxleys vest risk so looking to get rid of both of them, is Oxley -> hamling and krak with a swing of bellchambers into forward to cover bontempelli if hes out -> Goldstein. Thoughts???_

Gryffindor

Good Trades. Waiting another week for Hamling's Job Security would be preferable but Ox will drop 20k so probably worth it
Goldy is a great option and although his BE is 127 he could make it

Shane

Clark to dumont (moving the Bont fwd)

Rockliff to Fyfe (can’t go another week without him)

Krak and Tarrant were set to go, but needed to focus trades on injured players leading into the byes.

Gryffindor

If you can hold Rock it'll be worth it.
If you're dead set on trading him for fyfe wait for teams to be announced to get a look at the rookies
Glenn midfield is on the bubble and will get full games at Gold Coast whereas Dumont will be dropped or start sub when Swallow comes back this week and when Dal Santo and Wells return he'll have no chance at a full game

Tom

Is dumont a decent option?

was sub the first two weeks he played but scored 80 odd in his first full game this week

Swans 2012

I like him BUT a big chunk of the north midfield due back soon…..swallow, dal santo, wells….makes me ?? His js

Gryffindor

He'll get dropped soon or be sub if he's lucky. Wouldn't recommend Tom.

TRIGGER HAPPY

I think he will stay in. Currently ahead of Norths 2nd tier players as just wants the pill. Some passengers will make way this week but can’t see Dumont being one of them.

brook

i tend to agree … his ppm is very good and he may have gone past some others … he was even in quite a few centre bounces when the game was on the line too

TyS

I'm trading Rocky 3-4 weeks is too long …. He could be out even longer!? What is everyone else doing? Also who are my targets to bring in mid looks like Fyfe , Pendles , Beams , Lewis , Rocky , Mundy , Miller and CEY

Macka

JPK, Priddis, Sidebottom

TyS

Are you trading Rocky?

Sarah

I'm not. I'm holding him.

wayno1313

Holding Rocky for now. It doesn't make sense to trade him out and then trade him back in. Once he is over his injuries he will be a must have so better off keeping him and just covering for him. He could be back in round 12 after the bye.

Nick

Looking to bring in a mid after round 12 who is the better option out of Steele Sidebottom and David armitage?

Macka

Sidey

Macka

Oxley and Miller to Hamling and Dumont and have 500k in the bank to go bang bang in the bye rounds?
Or go Oxley to Hamling and Clark to any premo mid?

Gryffindor

I'd say option 2 Macka. If you don't have Lewis he's prime to bring in this week even though his bye is annoying.
I just feel like Dumont won't make much $$ and isn't bargain basement price so isn't a good option. No rookie forwards is so frustrating!

Ethan

Depending on the bont's injury im thinking of bringing in dumont for krakour, however if bont is out ill have to hold and miss dumont

Nicholas

dahlhaus or deledio

Nicholas

to bring in

Jono

Dahl

SC_newbie

Hi Community.. I'm new – but trying hard.. I know I need to trade Ox.. but need some $ to gain Fyfe (yep.. I thought I'd be smart and get him later but was wrong!).. so does anyone have a recommendation for a cheapie?

Macka

Hamling

Ethan

it would be wise to hold oxley

BKW

I don’t agree – will bleed cash this week, if I still had him I’d move him on

TRIGGER HAPPY

Won’t bleed much cash this week as 98 in his 3 Rd Avg. But will next week. So I’m holding this week as want to get wines in and want another look at hamling but will be moving on next week. Might not play this week due for a rest? That would be the perfect scenario as can upgrade to gibbo, birchall, rance Rd 12.

Sarah

I disagree also. Need to trade him now to bank the cash he's made. He's been subbed out 3 times, that's too much of a risk.

wayno1313

Hamling is your best option this week.

david

Sold Oxley for Gibson last week, knew he was goin to start as sub or be subbed with Tovey back last week might get dropped this week to give marsh a go.

Jono

Buddy, Dahl or Goddard???

Locked and Loaded

Goddard or Dahl then Buddy

nathan

Gotta go Goddard for his some what consistency
Then the young dog
Then buddy

Ashley J

Should I trade Krakouer to Boston via Lambert swing or to Brooksby via Read swing?

Gryffindor

Wait for teams to be announced. Preferably wait another week as well to see who has better form and job security.

Rob

Newnes is in amazing form!

Had him as a stepping stone but because of the lack of quality premos in defense i'm thinking of keeping him for the year.

Thoughts community?

nathan

Same boat on my end
Notany blokes back there in any decent form from the start of the year beside maybe hodge but his age and at the Hawks he’ll most likely miss games for a rest

Liam

Now that rockliff is out i have heeney and rockliff on the pine.
Are there any good downgrade options for heeney or should I just hold and wait?

Phil

Boston is your man. Hold off for a week if u can. Glenn (if named) is another option.

Mickey

Thanks Phil

Mickey

What are your thoughts on dumont fellas?

TRIGGER HAPPY

Like the lad, hungry and wants the pill which is what north are after. Seriously considering this week.

Danners

Dumont, Menadue, Amon, Robinson are all good options

Mickey

Is Daniel Mckenzie injured?? If so, for how long??

BigDropKick

How much will Oxley drop in price next week ?

Dann

Around 20k

TRIGGER HAPPY

$20k Rd 11

David

Nothing will get dropped

BigDropKick

why are people saying $20k ?

Tyler

Depends what he gets. If he makes his BE he will go up in value but It's unlikely that he will.

nathan

Hey guys
Bought rocky in last week instead of Dahlhaus
I only think he’s gonna miss this week and his bye round
But with only 1 forward and 2 defenders needed for a half decent side
Should I trade in a m9 premo or continue on my way to a full premo side?

Sarah

Continue on your way to a full premo side.

G'day Community,

Really struggling for trade ideas this week, so far this is what I've decided.

Oxley down to C Adamson(bargain basement) and then via switching Krakouer into midfield, Krakouer to J Lewis.

Already have Fyfe, Pendlebury, Dangerfield, Beams, Selwood, Griffen, Rockliff, Cripps and Yolmen.

Other potential rookies that could be traded that I have are Clarke and Tarrant.

Thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Don't bring in Lewis
I started with him and he was great at the start
And then he started scoring 90's then he got suspended for two weeks
Came back scored a 120
Then was a late withdrawal on the weekend with a " bruised shoulder"
Trade in sidebottom if I was you. Unfortunately I'm stuck with Lewis all year don't make my mistake!!

Who is forward? I like Krakouer to Buddy. Otherwise there are some other good midfield options such as Sidebottom or JPK

Jono

Trade in Pendles or Sidey?

Tophawk

Hi Jono.

If you are chasing points and are aiming to win this thing, then trade in Sidebottom. Great POD player.

If you want to win your league, perhaps de-pendlebury is your man.

Your call!

Locked and Loaded

BOTH!!

Tyler

At the start of the year I would say pendles for sure, but he has only had 1 score over 100 in the past 4 weeks, and sidebum is tearing it up, so sidey

John

I think we should still have our eye on the byes, but continue to build our team as quick as possible!
no point sitting back whilst others are trading around you, then you fall behind, its just to hard to make up that ground.

Good value this week out there, not sold on wines and wont go up much this week anyway (20k at most)
think there could be better value in defence with gibson or simpson but not sure who would be better to get out of these two,
or if there are any others i should be looking at back there?

would love some help on this one, at the moment im thinking gibson..?
thanks guys

Michael

Hi guys, during an actual bye round, are you able to downgrade a player whose bye it is or are they locked out?
cheers

nathan

You can still trade anyone in and out no matter of there bye

Michael

thanks Nath

Donavan

You cant trade a player with the bye once the round has started.

Players with the bye are locked-out at the beginning of the first match of the round, so need to trade them leading into each round.

Tophawk

Correct.

Players which are subject to the "bye" cannot be traded during the rolling lock out of that round. You either trade them prior to the lock out or after the round.

I guess that is why you get an extra trade (3) prior to the bye rounds as compensation.

That is my understanding of the rules.

Tophawk

Hi community,

I remain conservative with my trading at the moment. Maybe just the one trade this week.

I have a few players in my side (VDB and Hogan) that were supposed to be "culled" for either rookie downgrades or premo upgrades. I still have these guys and am very pleased with their output. Both will play against the Pies on holiday Monday.

I still have 19 trades and am ranked at around 11K. Currently 1100 SC points off the lead with a very nice bye structure. I can gain ground with my trades.

Cheers

hedski

Ha. Culled them not long ago. Few head in hands moments…

Vince the quince

Cool story bro.

Tyler

Just don't wait too long to do any trades mate, if every trade is helpful then you would want to use as many of the 30 as possible

hedski

Hi guys wanna put something out there. Is sinclair a valid option to trade in for clark. Would b a f7 but have goldy stef cox ruck and luckily no stinky backup fwd. Have swan goddard dusty bont tex and gunston fwd will have gray t swing down in few weeks? No eagles in side. Lambert other benchwarmer. Cheers.

hedski

Is it that bad a move?

Francis

Who to trade out – Oxley, Krak or Tarrant?

And bring in Dumont or Amon?

Tyler

Ox and Krak I think. They have the highest BE's and they will probably lose money from here on out. I think this week Oxley may even be the starting sub with De Goey starting on-field for the pies. and Krak has been getting the vest lately so I think it's time for them to go

Danners

Krak, has a high breakeven and could be brought down onto the rookie list again anytime soon

derek

I like that he has DPP, allows for flexibility

throttlefinger

Chicko and I have a 2pm lunch date with Mr. James at the Four Seasons. We are going to adjourn for quick horse and buggy ride around Central Park before finishing the day at the Statute of Liberty. By this time, Mr James should have an SC spreadsheet that will make Higgo's head (and trousers) explode.

Details to come…

OldOcker

Great stuff TF you have my email address mate, Have a great day.

throttlefinger

Yes. I have your email on speed click, Ocker.

throttlefinger

It was…quite a day.

Sarah

Nice work Throtts!

throttlefinger

Thanks Sarah. And nice win this week in the Tdome.

Sarah

Cheers Throtts. It was an honour to clash with such an esteemed member of the community!!

(That other 'Sarah' comment that's been deleted wasn't from me.)

throttlefinger

Honor is mine having you in the league. And you're now in the top 8.

Need to make some trades and get the ol' TF boat turned around. Not good getting the spoon in your own league!

Gryffindor

I'm Aroused

Tyler

Any valid down-trade options up FWD? Or should I just go to a player like Hugh Goddard or Caleb Daniel who have a chance to play some AFL this year?

I N Pieman

Another option is Jack Steele. Named emergency for the last few weeks & tearing it up in the 2’s. Also has mid/fwd status. Also if you have Krak in the mids you can swing them

derek

Laverde must very close to a game as well. been playing well in the seconds. has DPP.

Snake Martin

Rance or Hooker? im trading out Oxley

I N Pieman

Rance of those 2

Rob

Neither. Go with Josh Gibson

Dann

If Frawley goes down so will Gibbo’s scores

Gryffindor

Out of them Rance but i'd look at Hodge, Simpson and possibly Brodie Smith if he returns with form

Danners

Rance, Hooker might do the same as last season, have a great start then drop off

James

Is J Lewis worth trading in? Have a max of $549,000 to spend and Lewis looks like the best option.
Do you guys have any other suggestions for Midfield options at that price?

Cheers

aaron

I just brought in Lewis, Hawthorn need to win he will step up and they have a fairly easy draw in the coming weeks i would go with him it just depends who else you have in your midfield

Danners

I'm in a similar situation, I was going to go Selwood, but with Blicavs now in the midfield, I starting to wonder whether Selwood can get it done. Lewis is definitely a good option, but other options are Ward, Treloar, Ellis, Boyd, Wines, Boak, there are quite a few

derek

Selwood is a gun. one of only a few A graders in the AFL. he is joining my team this week.

David

Miller for Lewis for me than Slone will drop under $500k next week.

Locked and Loaded

Wines

Nicholas

Who should i trade in dahlhaus or deledio?

Danners

Dahlhaus

Ryan

dal

aaron

Michael Hibbeard or Kade Simpson, Thoughts, or any other players around 450k advive would be appreciated guys

Give It A Go

Simpson has a bye in r11, Hibbeard r12, imo go with hibs and get simps in r12

Danners

Simpson, I'm not sure whether Hibberd has turned up for this season yet

David

McGovern

zeesus

Docherty?

Stretch Marks

Trying to conserve trades pre-byes, but injuries could hurt this week – I have Rockliff, Clark, Watson & Saad (and still have Salem). I feel like I need to do something, so I'm thinking of trading Rockliff & Cripps for Wines & Wallis. i know Wallis is R11 bye, but this trade helps my bye teams in R11 & R12 (where I need some help).

Swans2012

The exact trades I’m doing, makes sense to me….

luke

I’m bringing in Wallis for miller or krak. Straight swap from miller and will leave me with a bye structure of 10/10/10. Should go up 50k this week if not more while miller or krak will go down in value. Will hopefully continue to fire out some nice scores.

Rick Grimes

Think I might trade out Saad this week to get Hodge. I know he's a handy little player with a bit more $ left in him, but I want that premo output. Anyone see a major problem with this?

SCaddict

That would be a sweet upgrade but if Saad is playing this week I'd just wait a fortnight until Hodgey has had his bye before making this switch.

I plan to do similarly with Saad –> Houli/Rance/Gibson prior to Rd12 lockout.

carlashirley90

A player like Saad can wait till his bye round

I N Pieman

Love your team name Carla

derek

i'll be welcoming Hodge to my team Round 12, even though I said I wouldn't have any Hawthorn players in my team this year….so I started with SMitchell, he has been good.

derek

Sammy has been good, not great. I knew when I got him that this would happen, I even posted it here, he would sit on the bench most of the last quarter when the Hawks had the game in the bag, instead of scoring 130+ be would score 110. Exactly what happened last weekend!!!

Brooke Richards

Is it okay to keep Oxley until his bye, or do we need to get rid of him now?
same with Krakouer

I N Pieman
