Lekdog’s Check In – Captains

Published by Lekdog on

LekdogLook community I’m gonna be honest with you, this round has been rough. Not just because I’ll have a terrible score but also because I witnessed the great CJ crumble before my very eyes…I’m writing this through a few tears I can admit.

Now in my emotional state I don’t think I can logically pen a lengthy piece of writing containing all of the wisdoms you desire, or deserve. But I will do what I can…

So in my observations of this season I’ve seen some things and I think I’ve seen enough to make some bold calls.

Looking at the Supercoach scores from this year I can see a couple of trends. I believe (and I’m sure I’ll be corrected) that blowout games (31+ point wins) are bd for Supercoach captains. It looks like points are being spread out far more in blowouts and in particular our midfields aren’t scoring as well, we are getting maybe five 100-110 scores rather than one or two 140+ scores. The exception seems to be key position players like Buddy or JJK.

In close matches however (30 points and less), we are finding some massive scores. Dangerfield, Higgins, Goldstein and Mumford are just some examples from this round. It seems that close matches are creating more critical possessions and moments late in the game which really helps with the weighting of points.

What I’m trying to say is that when looking for a Supercoach captain we should look to competitive games rather than potential blowouts, or just pick Nat Fyfe every week #FyfeIsLife.

When picking a captain what will you prefer?

This may not be accurate community, it may be nonsense but quite frankly I’m too sad to care, my boy Chris “3 Votes” Judd looks to have finished his career but he will always have a career in my heart.

#FyfeIsLife – But I had the C on Tom Mitchell this round.

hedski · 08/06/2015 at 12:31

Vc on danger. Flirting with swanny but looks like im eating a donut this arvo, will win my leagues so think I’ll take the 130.

TOM · 08/06/2015 at 12:36

Thoughts on CEY, Miller and McIntosh to Dumont, Boston, Hodge

    Mark Jenkins · 08/06/2015 at 13:01

    Terrible idea. Plus, not an appropriate forum for this question.

      TOM · 08/06/2015 at 13:56

      Ok Mark Jenkins… just looking for some advice mate

      Bruce · 08/06/2015 at 18:29

      Mark Jenkins calm down please

      mcleal10 · 08/06/2015 at 20:16

      Wtf dude.. since when did you run this forum?

      KaleJ · 08/06/2015 at 21:29

      Mark “Mr serious” Jenkins

      Billo · 09/06/2015 at 03:42

      Ball Mark

    hedski · 08/06/2015 at 14:48

    Have you missed boat on dumont? Took boston over him last round. Not sure if right yet but extra 30k handy.

    Bailey · 08/06/2015 at 22:02

    settle down big boy

      Bailey · 08/06/2015 at 22:02

      Mr Jenkins

Youngy · 08/06/2015 at 12:44

Lekdog, Will your "Mo' Supercoach News" be back for the all important bye rounds?

    LEKD0G · 08/06/2015 at 17:20

    Yeah mate I'll be putting one up tomorrow, just had to finish some assignments last week

      Youngy · 08/06/2015 at 17:27

      Thanks, looking foward to it.

      General Soreness · 09/06/2015 at 09:39

      Out shopping for a Bowler too, I hope.

Kano · 08/06/2015 at 12:49

Very sad to see judd possibly finish his career in that manner. A true champion and future hall of fame legend I’d assume. I loopholed the vc on fyfe and the c on kennedy this week and it backfired big time. Have been loopholing all season but with fyfe generally captain. It has paid off most of the time (sloanes 2 big scores, pendles 158 both as vc) so I think I will continue with that strategy but not if fyfe is vc again. I won’t be as greedy and will take a 110 score from him next time. Just can’t trust the consistency of my other premos this year.

    Sang · 08/06/2015 at 23:31

    Funny to read this! I did exactly the same thing. Great minds…

    We thought JPK could handle the responsibility of Captain. Obviously not this week. Fyfe seems to be the new Supercoach Gary Jr.

Giri · 08/06/2015 at 13:08

When selecting a C option, a hard nosed inside midfielder is best. These guys are a safe option, and usually are good for a ton at the very least barring a shocker. It would be a lot smarter though to experiment with a key forward or an outside midfielder as a VC option, as you always will have your trusty C option which is your Fyfe, Pendles, Beams variety.

    Lou · 08/06/2015 at 13:13

    Who's the best inside mid? Kennedy? Great captain option this year…

      hedski · 09/06/2015 at 08:13


        hedski · 09/06/2015 at 08:13


    Azz · 09/06/2015 at 00:06

    This hasn't worked well with the likes of Jelwood and Kennedy lately

mattforrest8 · 08/06/2015 at 14:04

I have been choosing the VC on an inside midfielder like Pendles, Wines, Hannebery, Parker, then chucking the captaincy on the Fyfe if it falls down. Vice Versa works well. This week I had Fyfe VC, then took Parker's upgrade as captain

    Youngy · 08/06/2015 at 16:21

    You put the C on Parker, bold move, paid off. Wouldn't have been good if he scored another 60.

      LEKD0G · 08/06/2015 at 17:21

      I didn't take Fyfe's score and took Selwood's score so i get it

    Philip · 08/06/2015 at 22:30

    Did the same, flirted with Gray lucky I didn’t.

Mr chan · 08/06/2015 at 14:31

@lekdog Good point on the massive scores in close games

Donavan · 08/06/2015 at 15:38


Feel for you with Judd going down.

My team has also underperformed this week, looking like a sub 2000 score for the first time this season.

But chin up, have my bye strategy in place, and not going to dump under performers the week before the byes. It's time to play to he plan.

Watched Judd go down, and think it may assist Murphy in some weird way, as he is now he man. Also Kruzer looked good.

Derek · 08/06/2015 at 16:04

C’mon Cloke. Go huge today

    Liam · 08/06/2015 at 16:31

    You're in luck today Derek. He's flying right now.

    Youngy · 08/06/2015 at 17:55

    Well he has to have 1 good game, I guess this is the one

    SCaddict · 08/06/2015 at 18:08

    Congrats on the comeback win today mate. Hogan's worst game of the season and the Cloke of Invisibility's best got you home in Eggs. Hopefully I get another crack at the Bunnies in the finals. πŸ™‚

      Derek · 08/06/2015 at 18:23

      I honestly didn’t deserve the win.

        SCaddict · 08/06/2015 at 18:35

        Nah that's the way the cookie crumbles so well played.

        I'm actually surprised Clokey didn't score a little more than he did.

      Marco_Polo94 · 08/06/2015 at 18:24

      Hogan got me too. Had a 50 point lead with Hogan vs Oxley. #spewin

    Luviboy1 · 08/06/2015 at 18:35

    You got me too Derek. A lousy 6 points.

      Derek · 08/06/2015 at 19:07

      I saw that. I Had given up. Cloke to beat Hogan by 80 points was not likely.

      I’ve had Cloke from round 1 and he finally paid off.

      Only managed 2174. Will slip down rankings.

        Derek · 08/06/2015 at 19:12

        I can’t believe I beat Farros Flyers by 1 point.

        Plus 10/10 league wins. More than half by less than 40pts.

        Who would have thought Travis could have saved my weekend

          SideBySidebottom · 09/06/2015 at 18:07

          You've been extremely patient with him. He had to pay you back at some stage. You're backbone should be inspirational to the coaches who want to dump premiums after a couple of bad games.

Youngy · 08/06/2015 at 17:29

Hogan and Vandy onfield. Ouch!

medadsson · 08/06/2015 at 17:57

A true champion of the game for sure. Also quite a handy ambassador for cardboard box sales by all accounts.

Darcy · 08/06/2015 at 18:07

Fyfe, always, with the loophole option of a smokey, like bud

Chris · 08/06/2015 at 18:18

bloody hell i went oxley to hamling this week

    SCaddict · 08/06/2015 at 18:23

    Yeah I thought I was pretty clever going Oxley to Simpson this week ha ha.

    I always marvel at opposition coaches who continue to allow these damaging plus 1s in defence to rack up huge numbers of intercepts and rebound ball. Great for those who kept the faith with the Ox though.

    Youngy · 08/06/2015 at 19:49

    Pretty happy with myself in keeping Oxley, will give him the flick most likely Rd12

Liam · 08/06/2015 at 18:26

Scored 1943 this week…

    CashCows · 08/06/2015 at 18:31

    2002 for me, with a donut on the field, 2 premos out and C on Gray.

    hedski · 08/06/2015 at 18:31

    Ouch. Somehow crawled to 2081 with a donut….

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/06/2015 at 14:33

      2214 no donuts but tbc and Kelly on ground

    Bruce · 08/06/2015 at 18:32

    Newnes miller CEY griffen tarrant hogan TBC and mcintosh were my problems

      Mike · 08/06/2015 at 20:42

      If you were relying on those blokes to post you a score I’d look in the mirror to find your main problem πŸ˜‰

        Bruce · 08/06/2015 at 21:58

        good one mike

iamme · 08/06/2015 at 18:42

2217 – After much debating I decided to keep Oxley and Rockcliff, leaving me 21 trades to attack the byes.

    Youngy · 08/06/2015 at 19:50

    Where abouts you ranked mate?

Donavan · 08/06/2015 at 20:01

Absolute carnage for my team 1909 points, full team (no donuts), with bench options on all lines (except ruck).

Dropped ranking from about 4k to 9k, ouch

Goal climb back up the ranks to top 2k following byes.

iamme · 08/06/2015 at 20:07

I moved up 424 places so I'm ranked 1045…though I was as high as 560 after round 8

    CashCows · 08/06/2015 at 20:10

    Ha, looks like i'm going the other way.
    I dropped to 1315 and was as high as 280 after R6.

Tyler · 08/06/2015 at 20:10

Funny when 2050 is enough to win 5/7 leagues. Got a few sneaky shark moves planned for the byes, looking forward to it

henry · 08/06/2015 at 20:11

Should i get rid of tom rockliff?

    SCaddict · 08/06/2015 at 20:45

    Would wait a week for his bye and then get a status update on his return date. If it still looks like he's a month away you could then trade him for another Rd11 bye mid.

      Paul Walnuts · 08/06/2015 at 20:49

      Agree,good advice

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/06/2015 at 14:34


    Bobby Beans · 09/06/2015 at 14:10

    Yes get rid of him, Brissy will not make the same mistake twice by bringing him back early this time, they are no chance to make finals so why would they risk him? and when he does return expect a few slow games/ playing more forward time anyway so 4-6 weeks + possible couple games recovering forward anyway….why hold just to get 5-6 weeks of decent scores at end of year?

Swans2012 · 08/06/2015 at 20:23

2331 kicks me from 251 overall all the way up to 88. Stoked! Shame I’ve only got 2 trades left lol

    Derek · 08/06/2015 at 20:42

    Way to go! Show us your team.

    I’m sure you have more than 2 trades πŸ˜‰

    Shaun · 08/06/2015 at 21:24

    2 trades left huh? That's impossible, up until now the max amount of trades that could have been used is 21 with 9 remaining

      Swans2012 · 09/06/2015 at 07:36

      Yep, 2 trades left and tony Lockett kicking goals for me up forward! Lighten up a little Shaun! And Derek team is thewinningchoice all one word, think i saw the binder a bunnies in one of my leagues.

        derek · 09/06/2015 at 09:19

        I see you are hanging onto TBC as backup. I like how you have 6 DPP players in your forward line. Still a few cash cows to cull, team looking good.

          Swans2012 · 09/06/2015 at 16:57

          Thanks Derek, feeling pretty good about it! Tough decision is going to be whether to keep bell or cash him in for that Suns 100k rookie ruck (can’t remember his name). Prefer the flexibility of belch as an r/f and good js but the 200k would be handy if that rookie keeps playing….

Rob · 08/06/2015 at 20:25

I don't really understand the bye scoring system. By 18 players does it mean only the highest 18 will score? So if that's true then everyone will be scoring a whole lot lower right? I would imagine that 2000 would be a great score during the bye rounds

    TOM · 08/06/2015 at 20:36


    SCaddict · 08/06/2015 at 20:47

    Yes 1800 would probably be a decent score on average each bye round as you are having to play a few more rookies than you'd ordinarily field in a regular round and any outs or vests will hurt more than usual too.

Mike · 08/06/2015 at 20:45

Lek I feel for you re. Judd. Great player.
But am I bad for looking forward to your weekly vid because of it?
I expect to see you wailing in a black dress while scourging yourself.

indyman · 08/06/2015 at 21:27

people worried about doghnuts! what about Johnsons -3??

    Shane · 08/06/2015 at 22:38

    Johnson is my only trade for the week. It’s the rnd12 donuts I have to worry about so I’ll be bringing in a rnd 13 bye player. For mine, McGovern looks the best option.

hedski · 08/06/2015 at 21:42

Any word on podcast community?

    SCaddict · 08/06/2015 at 21:52

    Jock tweeted that the gang is having a podcast bye this week but he'll be back Thursday night.

    The poor fella has had a bad run with the bug the last few weeks so hopefully he's back on his feet soon.

      hedski · 08/06/2015 at 22:12

      Thanks addict get well big fella

      Rondogs · 09/06/2015 at 04:18

      Long weekend bug? Lol

Liam · 08/06/2015 at 22:00

This weeks trades:
Goodes to kavanagh via mckenzie dpp
Heeney down to boston
CEY to wines

Only problem is that i have to hold rockliff
Is rockliff a must trade or should i do those??
Cheers community

    SCaddict · 08/06/2015 at 22:31

    No now that you've kept Rocky you may as well wait another week and then consider your options then.

    Who knows he may make a miracle return in Rd12 although I reckon that's fairly unlikely given this is the second time this season he's busted those ribs. But hey stranger things have happened and the guy is harder than a cat's head as they say.

    Ethan · 09/06/2015 at 07:22

    why kavanagh

    jezzahill · 09/06/2015 at 16:09

    Kavanagh looking like a solid pick if he can avoid the snot vest. A 77 in his first game for the year was promising, but I'll be sitting off him until after his bye to get one more look at him.

Bucks · 08/06/2015 at 22:00

Is it possible to do cptains loop hole during bye rounds?

    Deadly · 09/06/2015 at 15:48


Bailey · 08/06/2015 at 22:05

who are the best forward downgrade options this week

    Ethan · 09/06/2015 at 07:22

    there are none

Nicholas · 08/06/2015 at 22:10

is krak playing again any time soon. if not is krak down to rookie like kavagnah and rocky or cey up to wines good?

    The Bont · 08/06/2015 at 22:17

    Seriously doubt Krak will play again because he's been downgraded to the rookie list.

    Wines and Kavanagh look like good options.

    Jonesy · 09/06/2015 at 12:50

    can be elevated off the rookie list after round 12, don't know if he will or not.

    jezzahill · 09/06/2015 at 16:13

    Not sure about Krakouer, he wasn't in great form before he got demoted back to the rookie list so I'd probably look at trading him. Ellis-Yolmen can be traded this week, has a bye and with Brad Crouch dominating in the twos his JS now isn't great, especially given he was subbed on the weekend. Wines a good trade up option, no dramas there.

Bailey · 08/06/2015 at 22:19

can anyone give me an update on tom rockliff?

    Ethan · 09/06/2015 at 07:13

    second case of broken ribs, dont think they'll risk him like last time

The Bont · 08/06/2015 at 22:20

Tommy Mitchell or Buddy for the last spot in my forward line?

    SCaddict · 08/06/2015 at 22:25

    Buddy because he's cheaper and has rock solid JS. Whilst Titch will very likely play the remaining 12 games it's not 100% ironclad like Bud. If he has a couple of quiet games or doesn't do what Horse wants him to there's a small chance he could return to the NEAFL again. For whatever reason Horse doesn't seem quite a Titch fan though no way could he be dropped on his current form.

    Ideally you would want to bring these guys in after their bye although they will be a little more expensive if you wait that extra week.

      hedski · 08/06/2015 at 22:54

      Tommy for me. Dpp and surely not as hot cold? Worried bout leg injuries with both tho. Agree about js.

        Ethan · 09/06/2015 at 07:12

        having the DPP for a fwd mid isnt really going to matter much especially if you already have gray,goddard or deledio

      The Bont · 08/06/2015 at 23:07

      Hmm would've thought Titch has finally solidified his spot in the side but I guess if he has a sudden change in form you never know.

      In a bit of a desperate situation at the moment so loading up on Rd 12 bye players to hopefully ensure league wins in Rd 11 & 13, so that's why I'm bringing them in now.

    jezzahill · 09/06/2015 at 11:17

    Buddy's BE is only 17 this week, this is the last chance you will have to get him under 500k for a while so Buddy for mine. Yes he has some hot and cold weeks but he looks like he's hitting some really good form – averaging 105 over the last three rounds. You will have to deal with the round 12 bye so if you can hold off until after his bye that might be ideal. It all depends on how much cash you have and your structures.

Minge E Lee · 08/06/2015 at 23:50

podcast tonight?? bueller??

Bobby Beans · 09/06/2015 at 00:37

Yeah why no podcast fellas πŸ™ ?

Timmy · 09/06/2015 at 07:21

Kavanah a good option this week? What rookies are on the bubble? I already have Boston. Too late for Dumont?

    jezzahill · 09/06/2015 at 16:17

    Not many rookies to choose from this week, Boston is the obvious one. Daniel Robinson from the Swans is a potential midfield rookie – he scored an 83 on debut but was the sub last week. Job security is the big risk there and considering the Swans played Carlton and GC they could have just been giving him a run. I think it's too late to jump on Dumont – personally I wouldn't be spending more than 150-160k on a rookie now.

Bretto · 09/06/2015 at 08:19

Who is better option to bring in this week, Wines or Ebert? Similar prices and average.

    jezzahill · 09/06/2015 at 11:21

    I bought Wines in last week and thinking I will bring in Ebert this week after flicking the stain that is Ryan Griffen from my team. Considering their averages they are both super cheap – Ebert has only had three scores under 100 and one of those was a 99, so its pretty clear that even if the Power don't win he plays well. Wines is a safe pick and there will be lots of people jumping on him for their final teams, so he's probably preferred by most. If you're looking for a bit of a POD though, Ebert is your man.

      Bailey · 09/06/2015 at 12:50

      Jezza, your opinion on selwood?

        jezzahill · 09/06/2015 at 13:01

        He had a poor start to the season by his standards but that 122 I think is a sign of things to come. According to Fantasy Freako on Twitter, he has averaged 121 and 125 in the last two seasons after round 10. I think he has virtually bottomed out (even though his BE is 91) and his round 13 bye is also handy. If you get him now you're locking in a big win over those coaches who picked him for their initial squads, which is what I'll be doing. Ellis-Yolmen up to Selwood for me.

          Bailey · 09/06/2015 at 15:53

          thanks jezzalinko

      Bretto · 09/06/2015 at 23:53

      Thanks Jezza – love the way Ebert is a tackling machine! Just hope he can end up around a top 8 mid.

        jezzahill · 10/06/2015 at 00:55

        He's certainly a unique pick, Bretto. One which I think is still flying under the radar. I'm not sure he can crack the top eight mids come seasons end, but i think he can certainly be inside the top 15-20.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/06/2015 at 09:21

What’s the go with the captain loophole this week? I assume your non playing player must not have the BYE? ie put the vc on gray Friday night. If he goes big put the C on Cox leaving goldy on the field and move Grundy onto the bench with an E?

    derek · 09/06/2015 at 14:02

    I'm pretty sure your Non-playing player can be from a team having the bye. As long as they are on your field, you can put the C on them and take the VC score.

    SCaddict · 09/06/2015 at 14:04

    All bye players can be traded or subbed right up until the last game starts this Sunday at 4:40pm AEST but not a second later.

    So no dramas planting the C on a bye player for captain loophole purposes if you want to double your pre-existing VC score.

    Same deal for emergency loopholes if you happen to have a surplus player on a particular line in a given bye round.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/06/2015 at 14:41

      Thanks guys makes it a bit easier. Though good luck with loopholing emergencies. πŸ™‚

Cliffy · 09/06/2015 at 14:40

So just when I thought I had my bye structures set for this first Bye round and the following ones I’ve been forced to deal my hand in trading, a few patch-ups are in order. So, in saying that, which of these combos looks the goods (really thinking about adding more Rd 13 bye players in order to cover myself for Rd 12):

Option 1:

M.Johnson – Yeo

Rocky – Wines

Option 2:

M.Johnson – Higgins

Rocky – Shiel/Treloar (if you guys pick this combo option, which of those two GWS midfielders looks a better option?)

Option 3:

M.Johnson – Higgins

Rocky – Wines

Cheers guys


    Liam · 09/06/2015 at 14:57

    Option 3

    jezzahill · 09/06/2015 at 16:22

    I don't mind option one. Yeo is playing a lot in the midfield and has had 5 scores over 80 in a row. The only concern is that his best and his worst performances are a long way apart. His lowest score for the year is 40-odd and his highest was 140+. Wines is a safe pick and one I think a lot of people will jump on. Option one or three for mine.

    MC · 09/06/2015 at 18:32

    Option 1

Gareth · 09/06/2015 at 14:40

As downgrade targets, does Hamling or Clurey have better job security?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/06/2015 at 14:56

    Hamling for mine

    jezzahill · 09/06/2015 at 16:24

    Hamling. Trengove could be back next week which would see Clurey drop out of the side.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/06/2015 at 14:54

Thoughts on a Rd 13 bye Def? Was looking at Enright or Kelly from the cats?

    Stevo · 09/06/2015 at 17:50

    McDonald best defender atm but he's a KPP so be weary. Higgins, Shaw, Yeo all in fine form

    brook · 09/06/2015 at 19:43

    looking for same … mcg is other option but tmac for me of a thin bunch … most good defs have r11 bye

Bretty · 09/06/2015 at 15:29

Hi Guys can you trade a player with a bye this wk mid round or does it need to be before the round commences? Cheers

    Paul Walnuts · 09/06/2015 at 15:48

    All Good,It depends who you are trading in, as long as the game hasn't started.

      Bretty · 09/06/2015 at 16:25

      cheers yeah i knew re. player trading in was just concerned on the lockout for players with a bye trading out

        SCaddict · 09/06/2015 at 17:09

        You can trade Rd11 bye players (either in or out) right up to final lockout at 4:40pm AEST this Sunday. You can also make them your C up til this time for captain's loophole purposes too.

Thoughts on Kavanah?

    Stevo · 09/06/2015 at 17:47

    Solid but JS is weak with Watson to return

dave · 09/06/2015 at 16:01

selwood vs wines

    Stevo · 09/06/2015 at 17:47

    Wines until Selwood fines some real form

      Paul Walnuts · 09/06/2015 at 20:08

      Sellwood 122 last round

    jezzahill · 10/06/2015 at 00:57

    Selwood has averaged 121 & 125 post round 10 in the last two seasons. I think we saw the start of his run on the weekend with 122. In terms of value Selwood is cheap as chips, but both are good selections.

Pinidu.C · 09/06/2015 at 16:14

I'm downgrading Krak to Boston this week which leaves me with 250K. Which of the following three should I upgrade to Buddy: Salem, Tarrant or Clark? Also, Selwood is priced at 490K this week. Should I upgrade Rich to Selwood this week or wait and go for either Hanners, Danger or Priddis? Thanks for all the help!

Stevo · 09/06/2015 at 17:49

Would you rather:
-Cockatoo to Boston (for cover) OR
-Cox to Brooksby (just in case one of my rucks is a late out in the long run)

    hedski · 09/06/2015 at 18:04

    I am tossing up same thing with cox/brooksby. I have stef and goldy. Both workhorses and could play out year with byes only break? Worried about brooksby js and probably better trading to a mummy sauce nic nat if one goes down hard. I keep coming back to being a burnt trade? Thoughts

      Stevo · 09/06/2015 at 18:24

      True true. I have goldy and Nic Nat who is injury prone. But say your in finals and Goldy is a late withdrawal before the game, Brooksby could be your 50 or so points contribution to the winning margin. So…

        derek · 09/06/2015 at 18:39

        I have thought about it, but have always said that I will run with only two rucks (No TBC in fwd) and if one goes down or cant play for a week, I would trade. So far Goldy and Sauce have not missed a game. I would prefer getting in a premium to replace one of my missing rucks so I don't just get 50 points. I want maximum out of my rucks.

        I would hold the trade and use it later when you really need it.

        hedski · 09/06/2015 at 18:40

        Yeah its a tough one. I have been machine gunnin through my trades tho so will probably take my chances!

          hedski · 09/06/2015 at 19:51

          So boston here steveo

thoughts on Motlop?

    Luviboy1 · 09/06/2015 at 18:53

    Stevie has never averaged anything over 80 in his past 5 seasons. Couple low scores this year of 26 and 70, but if they aren't taken into account his average is 97. Could this be the year he steps into Supercoach premium status?

Brooke Richards · 09/06/2015 at 18:54

With Rockliff coming back round 13 at earliest. Should I stick with my original plan of going cripps to selwood or trade rockliff to selwood to have a bit more cover?

    Gryffindor · 09/06/2015 at 19:22

    If you care more about overall ranking then go rockliff but if you care more about winning your league rockliff will be a good POD to have for finals because lots of people have traded him

      Brooke Richards · 09/06/2015 at 19:23

      ok thanks

Harry · 09/06/2015 at 19:11

Thoughts on my team. 19 trades with over 100k in the bank

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

Was thinking going triple downgrade this week….
McIntosh to Goddard
CEY to Boston
Hogan to Kavanah via Steele DPP.

So next week I can go
Saad to Hodge
Miller to Danger
Clark/Tarrent to Dalhaus


    Tophawk · 09/06/2015 at 20:13

    Hi Harry,

    Just a couple of things to keep in mind. I reckon Mc Kintosh to Goddard is a tick. CEY to Boston is risky IMO, as he could be named straight after the bye after a rest and continue to score well. He may have simply been subbed out because of a little niggle in his last match.

    Trading out Hogan may also be a bit pre mature after a poor game against the pies. The Dees have the Saints this week, and I am expecting him to bounce back hard. He is that kind of player who revels a contest.

    Just my take,


      Harry · 09/06/2015 at 20:19

      Thanks TopHawk! Love that you took the time to reply. What trades would you suggest I make this week? McIntosh to Goddard is locked, my only problem with CEY is high breakeven, but I can go Miller to Boston, but that will limit my scoring this week. What about, Tosh to Goddard, Clark to Dale? Or do you have any trades you could suggest?

TOM · 09/06/2015 at 19:22

Anyone know what Jock is ranked overall? Would love to know!

Luviboy1 · 09/06/2015 at 19:23

Triple downgrade this week of:
Hogan, CEY and Krak
Dale, Boston and Kavanagh
Leaving me with 660k for next round. Thoughts community?

    Tyler · 09/06/2015 at 19:45

    Yeah good trades exept I'm not confident in kavanagh

Tyler · 09/06/2015 at 19:43

Solid 919k ready for 6 tasty upgrades next few rounds

    I N Pieman · 09/06/2015 at 20:31

    That’s one hell of a warchest Tyler. Have fun spending that

Mac · 09/06/2015 at 20:29

Good downgrade options this week? Every Position

    Gryffindor · 09/06/2015 at 20:41

    DEF – Hamling, Clurey, Alex Pearce
    MID – Boston, Glenn if named, Kavanaugh
    RUCK – Brooksby
    FWD – No one on the bubble. Look for Goddard if named

      Mac · 09/06/2015 at 20:49

      Is Kavanah a good option? Since Watson will be coming back? Also who to trade this week to Boston CEY or Miller?

TOM · 09/06/2015 at 20:30

Whats rookie Pearce JS like at Freo with all their injuries now?

    Gryffindor · 09/06/2015 at 20:43

    He should fill Johnson's spot in defense nicely. Having said that, he's been injured and hasn't been playing WAFL so wait for teams
