Love your stuff Lek


Great Stuff Lek!

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

McIntosh to Pearce from Freo
Miller/CEY to Boston (Can't decide who)
Clark to Goddard

700k in the bank to go BANG BANG BANG next week with Hodge, Danger, Dalhaus


Brilliant as always mate! Gotta up and downgrade 2 of CEY, AVan, and Touk. Thinking one for dumont (late I know) and the other for Jelwood. Also m. Cox for big keegs!

Any suggestions would be great, already got 19 blokes playing this round, and the other two will be easy with a little tinkering!

Cheers community!


It depends on your bye structure. I'm actually going to can Touk this week and keep CEY around during the byes coz I'm so Rd12 bye heavy.

Besides CEY has a fairly gettable BE of 70 and there's a good chance he'll perform well in his next game after having such a stinker on the weekend.

If Vandy misses this weekend with the hammy concern then he would be a priority kill for mine.


Thoughts on Nathan Jones?


What's happened to the last couple of podcasts?


Cheers Lek


Hey Lek Great video as usual Mate I want to get either Titch or buddy as my f6 who do you consider as a better option to get thanks


Thoughts on rockliff to wines this week or should I hold him?


My inside man tells me Rocky will not be rushed back into it like last time. Definitely 4 weeks but more likely 5+. I'm sideways trading to selwood this week.


Lek lookn at 2 or 3 trades thaughts would b great

Johnson to either taylor enright higgins

Clark to buddy

Cey to rookie option ?


Buddy or any other options


Cheers which riewoldt


Yeah nice definatley a solid POD

Chris Judd

So Kmac to Pearce, any other downgrade options for players such as CEY


do you think he can break into the side tho?


What are your thoughts on Kavangh from Essendon?


Do you think Glenn is better.
Need a downgrade option for CEY.


Who should I bring in for my last forward spot?
I already have Swan, Gray, Goddard, Dusty,Franklin.


Dahl after his bye if you can afford him. That's my upgrade target next week anyway.

Would stay away from Lids with the achilles problems the past few years even though he could well finish a top 6 forward.

Value options if you want to save some coin include Boomer, Ziebell and Smith.


Lek what are your thoughts on bringing in roughy after his bye?


Apart from Boston whom I already have. Who could we trade CEY for? Or should I upgrade using my 200k bank?


Hey Lekdog, love your work, would you go Wines or Ward?



l. Gibbs

looking at Kamdyn Mcintosh down to Alex Pearce thoughts? should we look at Brodie smith in a couple of weeks?


I'd wait until after the Crows play the Hawks and then bring in Smith before Rd13 as he still has more cash to lose with a BE of 118 with that 9 still in his pricing. Another 70 score against the Hawks would see him drop another $20-$25K.

I'm hoping to do a direct switch with Smith and K-Mac at that point with virtually no bank involved. 🙂


Kmac, Cripps, CEY to Glenn, Boston, Pearce. Thoughts?


CEY to Boston


I think he is asking about all. I'd reconsider Cripps though.


Lek What do you think?
Rocky- rookie (not sure who as i have boston)
Thats to free up cash for next round


Lek what do you think?
CEY- Heppell
Rocky- Rookie (not sure who as i have boston already)
Thats to free up cash for next week to upgrade either hogan or oxley


I'm going TBC to Goldstein, Heeney to Selwood and Michael Johnson to Boston which will give me 17 players this weekend.
Next week I'll do another downgrade (Saad) down to Hamling and do another two upgrades. Rance in for Oxley and Dahlhouse in for Tarrant/Krak/Clark. Barring injuries I should have 18 playing next week as well. Not sure on the final bye round trades just yet but I should have 18 playing and more if I use my trades that week as well.


After the bye period how many trades should we have left? 10? 15? 12?


I'd say any where from 13-16 would be ideal


It depends on how many premo's you still need.
Ideally you want a full premo team, with some bench cover and about 7-10 trades left coming into the last 4-6 weeks of the season. This would hopefully allow you to go into the Supercoach league finals with 5-6 trades to use.


It really depends on how aggressively you've traded to get to full premo and how many injuries you've copped along the way.

I'll be full premo before Rd13 kicks off but will be down to just 7 or 8 trades.


I’m running the same system, I’ll be down to 8 or so and full premo by 13 or 14 with even luck


Trouble is it can be a boring game when things go wrong or opportunities present and you have no trades.


Nothing boring about 88 overal and nearly full premo 🙂


Thanks for the video…missed it last week. I have had the misfortune of having Rockliff twice and suffering smashed ribs twice and am wondering what to do.

Was wanted to save the trade but saw he may be back in rounds 14-16, which was a lot longer than I had hoped. Given Selwood's very tempting price, should I stick with Rocky and upgrade an ellis-yolmen, or get rid of him a third time?


Since you've kept Rocky last week just wait until his bye passes and then get the latest intel on his likely return date then.

If it's still a month away or longer then you could consider trading him to another Rd11 premo like Sloanedog or Lewey.

I'm not dazzled with Jelwood just yet. Let's see if he can back it up at the Portress this Friday first against a competitive outfit unlike those Bombers.


Good stuff LekDog.. keep up that Mo!

I have a few options I'm considering.. Griffen or Tarrant out??

My team..
BACKS – Shaw,TMac,Newnes,Gibson,Pittard,Saad,(KMac,Brown)
MIDS – Fyfe,Pendles,JPK,Selwood,Wines,Griffen,CEY,Cripps(Krak,DMcK,Ellis)
RUCKS – Goldy,Maric (read)
FWDS – MArtin,Gray,Dahlhaus,Swan,Hogan,Tarrant (Clark,Dale)
16 trades, 32k in bank

looking at offloading Krak to Boston, and possibly Clark to Brooksby via Read DPP
thinking also Griff to Ward or other rd13 bye player or
Tarrant to FWD Premo like Bud or Titch, Smith, Ziebell..


hmm ok.. don't mind moving Tarrant on?


Hey lekdog, love you work mate, would you recommend keeping Rocky. I dont know how i feel holding that much cash on my bench


I traded straight away and plan to bring him back in as soon as. Good move…time will tell?


Great stuff Lek, glad to see you back with Mo’ SuperCoach News.

Do you think going K-Mac to Pearce this week then Saad/Nathan Brown to Hodge and #Krak and Tarrant to Dusty and Dahlhaus next week would be a good plan?


great choices spooners. i went dahl over dusty this weekend and it hurt but will end up with both.


Hi Community this is my current team, with 73k and 13 trades left:

Defence: Shaw, Higgins, Newnes, Smith, Saad, Lever, (D McKenzie and Hamling)
Mids: Fyfe, Pendles, JPK, Selwood, Lewis, Griffen, Rocky, Rich (CEY, Boston and Lambert)
Rucks: Goldy and Nicnat (Read)
Forwards: Gray, Martin, Goddard, Swan, Harvey, Bontempelli (TBC and H. Goddard)

I am contemplating making the following trades this week:

Rich to Pearce (By swinging dmac into mids)
CEY to Dumont
TBC to Brooksby or Wright (Both from Gold Coast and is dependent on TBC being dropped this week)

This will leave me with 650- 736k for a triple upgrade next week

What are everyone's thoughts?


I don't know how you managed it but your midfield needs a complete reno.That should be you priority. I think some good sideways trading should fix it.

l. Gibbs

Still Have Rockliff, should I hold another week or trade him now? Good targets to get in? looking at Armitage or Hannerbry or Priddas


May as well hold now since you held last week


Goodes to kavanagh via mckenzie dpp
Miller to boston
CEY to wines

Leaves me with 350k in the chest to go bang bang bang with saad heeney and hogan pre rd 12

Good trades or not??
Cheers community


woldnt bring in kavanagh, with zaharakhis, watson and myers to come back in, loook at boston


hamling pearce boston glenn potentially all better options, wait and see teams and have another rd to look at kavanagh and weigh up job security/form consistency
i like wines and boston in, but a rd11 bye player instead of miller would be ideal


Team is as follows,

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

With 220K what trades do I make?


rd 11 rook(s) to boston/glenn/pearce (see if named)
hold to upgrade next week or non rd11 bye player that has or is close to bottoming out in value this week if you need to


What are the chances of Krakouer getting another game?

I believe that the Power have the option to upgrade a rookie after round 12. Is this the case, and if so would Krakouer be the likely upgraded rookie list player?



He was injured last week hence no game time. He could be back soon if not this round.


He played in sanfl …. Put back on rookie list


Got 24 disposals (20 kicks) – I think we’ll see him back in the team after the byes


Polec could be gone for the year and krakour may fill the role


Pearce or Hamling


Glenn (if named) or Kavanagh


Hamling and Glenn. Hamling has done good jobs on good opposition forwards and looks to be in the coach's favour and Glenn has better job security than Kavanagh and less of a vest chance


Who is a better rookie downgrade in defence, Hamling or Pearce???


Hamling has looked solid, without scoring highly. I like his job security. Hamling for me.


Yeah leaning that way but with Freo injuries down back Pearce might get a good run at it too…


Any love for corey ellis?

Still priced at 165k and hardwick seems to love him so he has decent JS

Considering downgrading CEY to him



I'm a little worried that he could lose his spot to Lambert or be relegated to a sub role but if you are confident on him it could pay off.

Would rather go Boston or maybe even Dumont for another $20K more.


Hey community,

This week i am not sure what to do. I have $1100 in the bank which is nothing at all i know. I also have a low amount of 15 trades however i am nearly full premo. I am ranked at top 3%(6785). I was trying to think of the best way to get wines in this week however my round 13 bye is already a bit full. However i really think Wines can keep this form up and be a really good player to finsih with especially at this cheap price. Also would i want to downgrade some players make cash for the following rounds. Possible players to remove would be rocky, cey, krak, kmic and griffen who i will probably trade out after his bye.

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

here is my bye structure:

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

Thanks for your help and time


i could also get rid of clark or hogan however i am not sure how long clark is out for


Since your team is skewed towards the Rd13 bye I would probably target Krak and Clark for culling if good downgrade targets present.

You already have Hamling and Boston so there aren't many other decent options out there right now. Wouldn't bother with Amon or Dumont as they are Rd13 and no longer super cheap anyway.

Lambert and Corey Ellis could be considered although I would wait until Rd12 to see which ones play.

I would hang on to CEY and K-Mac for now as their Rd11 bye shouldn't hurt you too much and could give you ok production during the other bye rounds until you are in a position to upgrade them.


Yeah, you seemed a bit reamed R13. But bringing in Wines will help your R11 and R12 scoring for sure.

Unless you go balls out trading R11-13, you're gonna have some donuts R13. But the strengths of the players you have could save you from dropping too significantly. I would say given your rank, you build for the long term, and bring in Wines and try to offload Hogan, Clark, Krak and Griff (or save Griff for your bench) the next two rounds. If there's a drop, it should be slight while you've made your side more robust.

My 2 cents. Hope this helps, Nicholas.


so what would be some good trades to go with these week that you would advise

skate or die

Chris Judd, a legend West Coast Eagle who also played for some other team..


That's a bit harsh


Sure is – mind you I think he played his best footy at the eagles, either way absolute champion of the game


Chris Judd, a legend footballer. WCE didn't make him, he made them.

skate or die

The locker room skipper Ben Cousins, did in my opinion. but thats an argument for another day. Unfortunately even Judd knew he was the second leader in that majestic West Coast Team. a True champion either way though.


Does this look like a good post-bye team?

DEF: Shaw, Simpson, Smith, Hodge, Newnes, Saad
MID: Fyfe, Pendles, Sloane, JPK, Selwood, Beams, Griff, Rockliff
RUC: Maric, Nic Nat
FWD: Gray, Martin, Swan, Goddard, Wingard, Higgins

Would appreciate any feedback


Brodie Smith is it time to bring him in


I would wait till after his next game, it'll be against Hawthorn so he won't make his break even and drop more in price


Is it nearly worth keeping Cripps for the season? Judd Gone, maybe he might emerge more and pull out some consistent 100 – 110 average?

Thoughts Community?


I guess we'll just wait and see. Unless he gets injured or starts producing sub 80 scores i'm gonna let him sit there until he's the worst performer in my midfield and then i'll probably upgrade


No. Would definitely keep him if he was in any other position but midfield spots are just too precious.
Dominated on the weekend and still only managed a 99. Expect a 90-95 average, which isn't enough to hold. Need a solid 110+ average for your midfielders.


Thoughts on these trades please-

Prior to round 11-
Out – CEY, Rockliff & Krakouer
In – Boston, J.Selwood & Motlop

Prior to round 12-
Out – Saad, Clark & Hogan
In – Houli, D.Martin & Lambert


good choices not sure on motlops consistency


Motlop is definitely underpriced right now. Just not sure he can get you that 95 plus minimum you really are looking for from an F6. Probably more of a stepping stone although is at least a smoky of providing you legit premo scoring.

I have him in my RealDreamTeam side and whilst he does have his productive weeks like last weekend he can have his fair share of quiet ones too as Crowls alluded to.


Only using the 1 trade in trading CEY to Boston. I'll have 405 left which is good money. Not trading Mcintosh, bE of only around 20 odd and if I trade him to Pearce then that's a player with a bye round 12 so that's worthless. Got Glenn, lambert and hamming on the bench so more then one trade this week is w waste Imo.


Yes I would give K-Mac at least one more game with that low BE if your team bye composition can handle it.


Yes. At least one more. He has a low BE and could actually help you through the byes. Who would've thought Kmac would be so handy?


Yeah I'm keeping McIntosh too and just going Krakafatty to Boston


Glenn or Amon?


Not convinced Glenn will be named again for a while. I have Amon and he looks very good. Two 60+ games in his last two from only 3 quarters of footy in both. Clean user and Port like him as a second year player. Starting in green is the only risk, but I doubt it’ll happen often.


thoughts on the trades of:

in: boston, glenn, a. pearce

out: lever, CEY, kamdyn mcintosh


Lever should be back round 12, he has a lot more cash to make and I won’t be trading him yet


Can someone help me with my post above?

Gold Rush

Rocky broke his ribs in r1 and broke the same 3 ribs 8 weeks later. Kind of tells you something don't it.


Lek, you are a national treasure. (can a Yank even say that to an Aussie?) Take it from someone who is a long-suffering Cleveland fan, the ebbs make the flows much more enjoyable.


Look who's up and about after a G2 upset victory! Delly certainly did quite a shutdown number on Steph although LBJ's lack of a clutch gene almost cost you another loss.

Certainly made the series more interesting although perhaps it's cruel to give those long-suffering Cavs fans hope. 🙂


And Curry's lack of clutch gene DID cost you a game. Ha :0

If I were a Warriors fan I'd be very, very worried. In fact, I'd rename you the Worriers. Lucky not to be down 2 games. You can't be happy with what you're seeing. Cavs D has shown up.

G3 will be interesting. Not sure what to expect. Hope the excitement keeps up. Been fun to watch so far.


With Delly keeping Steph to 0-8 from the field when he was guarded, the CAVS looked good. They stopped the MVP and Lebron went on his usual way picking up yet another triple double. It will be interesting how the Warriors try to get Curry more open looks against Delly


And LBJ isn't really shooting that well. He needs to pass more, get everyone else involved. If Mosgov can continue his work in the paint and they can get Delly, Jones and Smith to give solid minutes, should be a good chance to win another game.

Cavs defend really good against the 3. Have picked it up during the playoffs. That will continue to give Curry problems. See if Kerr draws up some plays to help free him up some more. But if he can't find his rhythm, could be panic time for the Warriors.


Will Sloane get back to his best form? Is Murphy a valid option?


Sloane is a gun. He’ll be back!!


Sloan has hawthorn after the bye and if he gets a tonne move moutains to get him in because that'll mean he's back to his silky smooth best


Gawd I hope so. He's inflicted so much supercoach pain over the past 6 weeks I reckon he kind of owes the Community, busted cheekbone aside.


I’m trading fyfe. Think he going to get injured this week.


Good luck with that.


Thoughts on Motlop? Only 388k… basically a straight swap from CEY using DPP


If this was at the start of the season i'd like the pick but i think at this stage of the year you can't afford to watse a trade to get him out if he's not performing so would recommend getting a proper premium. When Selwood, Sloan and JPK will be so cheap they're far better options


Too late to bring in Dumont?


Houli and rance 4 Saad and KK Rd 12? Good trades? Are these two tiges considered premo defenders?


Houli yes but i'm always skeptic of key position players. Rance has scored one tonne in his last 5 games and a 58,59 and 69. i would look at Hodge, Simpson and if Brodie Smith finds some form instead


Yes I have designs on getting Houli in for Saad in another week. I'm not so keen on a KPP in Rance even though the Champion Data folks seem to love the guy he he.


Lekdog awesome video, love the site great work by all you blokes first time commentor.

Who to pick out if wines, beams, jelwood or danger.

My premo mids are fyfe, pendles, parker, sloane and rocky.

Thanks boys cheers


wines or selwood, the other two are a safer bet but represent less value, if you want the safe option id bring danger and/or beams in after their bye, even if your bye structure allows for it, you might as well bring in playing players or make no trades at all, bringing in rd11 bye players this round serves no benefit


Awesome thanks guys. New at this forgot to mention also have pridis.

Yeah the toss up was wines or selwood.

then round twelve beams or danger.

also wondering on best forward to bring in
i have swan, grey, dusty, titch and the bont

cheers boys


CEY, Rich and KMac for Wines Selwood and Boston, bang bang? Bye structure is comfortable and sympathize with Wayno's philosophy of stuff the byes, pounce on value, with regards to players missing a round. Thoughts?


Trades this week,

CEY down to Boston and Bellchambers to Brooksby.



Should I trade Salem, Clark or Tarrant to get Buddy?


depends on your bye structures. clark will possibly not play this week but will play until r13 and has a low BE. tarrant will definitely play till r13 but has a higher BE and salem is injured but has his bye r12.

i would go with salem unless you have a reason not to.


Thoughts on Ebert v Wines? Cannot decide between the two. Also best DEF rookie to bring in this week?


I had the same thought…went Ebert but so hard to split them


Hey Lek, what are your thoughts on Lek as a POD, hasn’t scored under 82 and has pumped out big scores like 175, 131 and 140
