lever is out this week!

does anyone know how long clark is out for? if hes out im looking at 2 donuts this week..

Ethan

potentially after the bye

Timmmy

Young defender Jake Lever has also been ruled out of Thursday night’s clash with Hawthorn because of an ankle complaint.

Lever, 19, sprained his ankle in the dying minutes of Adelaide’s Round Nine match against Fremantle and missed the Club’s most recent game against Carlton. The injury is healing more slowly than initially expected, and will see Lever spend another week on the sidelines.

Timmmy

FARK

Swans2012

As far as lever goes I’m thinking if he spends another week maybe two on sidelines might mean he comes back in the 2’s. i think I’m chopping him, anyone got any info on whether he’ll slot straight back in? Baron?

Hoof Hearted

Heard Walshy on radio this morning saying he’ll be back next week

Rob

851K To buy a midfielder or a Forward.

My midfield and forward line is:

Mid: Fyfe, selwood, Gray, D.Mckenzie, Kennedy, Shiel, Cripps, Priddis( CEY, Dumont, Blakely)

FWD: Roughy, Martin, Bont, Hogan, Franklin,Tarrant( Lonie and lambert) ( I am getting rid of Tarrant )

I don't want to spend all my money and I would like to keep around 250-200K for next week which would allow me to get rid of CEY and Hogan.

Any suggestions?

mcleal10

I'd consider a Hogan trade into the midfield by swinging in Gray. That would give you a solid forward line whilst also gaining a new Midfielder. A good option could be Sloane, Lewis, Beams or even Deledio.

Joel

I would try and get in beams

sam siddall

Wallis

@wheels_1987

swing Gray into FWD
upgrade Tarrant and Hogan for a premo FWD and MID

jezzahill

Sloane presents some value if you want to trade out McKenzie. Could swing Gray forward and look at someone like Lewis/Cotchin/Ellis.

r2d2

Great vid Lek ! Current def – shaw hibberd yeo lumumba t hunt saad (lever k Mac )…… Thinking of downgrading saad too hamling then going t hunt too houli and k Mac too murphy ,, was planning lumumba out , but will keep him till next week thus getting another look at b smith ! Thoughts on these trades community ?

r2d2

So def will be shaw , hibberd , murphy , houli,yeo, lumumba , (lever hamling ) until I get smith next week

Joel

Sounds good, have you thought of trying to get in hodge?

r2d2

Thought of it yes … But him getting a rest about round 19-20 puts me off .. And have yeo ad dpp

zeesus

doubt he will get rested again with the 3 weeks he has had off.

scrofl

Trades look the goods! Once you trade Smith in next week, your backline will be pretty much complete (something I wish I could say for myself …)

Frantzy

Hey Guys do you’s believe Jack newnes is a keeper or needs to be moved on to a Premo defender?

Ethan

i reckon we should hold for now, he's in some decent form. As long as he stays over 400k theres no reason to upgrade him. Potentially if you have trades and cash at the end of year and he's your one weakness you could do an upgrade

Joel

Agree with Ethan, newnes against Melbourne was everywhere and looks to be playing a free role and demanding the footy more also he improved in his tackle count

scrofl

He's not a keeper, but he should score well enough to warrant a spot in your side until SC finals, where you should trade him to an actual premium.

Locked and Loaded

He is a keeper!! I will say what many have said before defenders are very fickle this year you have a plyer as a D6 that can generate scores over 100 why would you trade him unless you have coin and trades to burn later in the year

Swans2012

Agree, close enough good enough, hoping to be loopholing him and smith…

Youngy

He will probably be a keeper in my team.

Rob

Smith, Sloane and Beams in this week for me.

Joel

All great inclusions, I might wait on smith high breakeven, but if u don't matter about price…get on smith now

Joel

What are your thoughts on Kade Simpson…yes he delivers huge points but also puts in a couple of stinkers here and there

SCaddict

Very likely to finish a top 8 defender which is all we should really care about now. Yes he will have the odd shocker but that should be more than offset by the belters.

I brought him into my team a few weeks ago but reckon he's still reasonable value at his current price.

@wheels_1987

Great proven premo
im going B.Smith based solely on price otherwise i would get Simpson

theshark

averages over 88 for the last 8 of 9 seasons with the exception being an 85… safe bet. solid pick up

Youngy

Trade him in, Best defensive option.

Luke

dahlhaus or deledio?

Joel

Dahlhaus hands down…lids could easily reinjure his Achilles

Derek

Assume he won’t get injured, who would you get?

SCaddict

I'd tip my lid to Lids IF he can stay healthy.

But I'm too low on trades so can't afford to take the elevated injury risk on Lids even though he's soaring like a Supercoach eagle right now and will probably outscore Dahl for the rest of the season if he can stay on the park.

So I'll be picking Dahl this week instead who has played 53 of his last 54 games.

@wheels_1987

cmon mate
Go Lids!!!!
wooo

ps. how many trade do you have left out of curiosity
i have made 3 this week and have 14… not sure if thats a low amount compared to other members of the community

after next week, assuming i make 3 trades i will have 11 left for the season

@wheels_1987

This is supercoach
go all out
Get Lids mate and hold onto his achillies for dear life

Youngy

Lids

Jon

Ha Ha. Very enjoyable start.

scrofl

Looking to trade out Saad this week, I was going to go to Smith but I'm not convinced on him yet, I want to see him have a good game or two before I bring him in.
So I'm tossing up between Hibberd and Simpson at the moment. Simpson can be up and down, but him and Cripps seem to be the only players doing anything at Carlton so they should get lots of ball. But Hibberd on the other hand would prove more consistent.
Thoughts community?

Juzzy

If you in any doubt of 18 players next round then Simpson should be the obvious choice.
If you think Smith can get close to matching Sim or Hib scoring wise for the next little while then he might be the better option.
Cash vs points ….

RobDog

Smith is a premo defender. His low scores were the result of two concussions and the Crows have eased him back to make sure he is right for second half of season. Don't forget he started the season with 120's til he got knocked out and knocked out again on 16 with that horrible Riewoldt knock, so his ave doesn't reflect his true output. If he had hamstrings/achilles/groins type injuries then that would be different. His BE is 118 so he is not going to depreciate much anyway. Already have Hibberd and he is not setting the world on fire. IMO Smith is a steal, get on.

Paul

Is dan mckenzie worth downgrading this week to edwards? I know they both have the bye but it will give me 80k in the bank. Next week ill be downgrading tarrant to fantasia and upgrading swallow to a premo, is this the right approach?
P.S i have hamling already

Ethan

wait till edwards has played 2 games, its never worth getting in a rookie if they're not on the bubble

Juzzy

Downgrading 1 bye player to another bye player is strange unless you need the cash for a vital round 13 pickup.
Edwards will not go up for 2 weeks. Mckenzie might go up 20-30 grand if he plays round 13.

RobDog

GWS are playing Steele and Marchbank this week, think Steele would be better than Fantasia and Marchbank worth getting a look at in Def. They have long term injuries down back so might get decent JS if he can play.

@wheels_1987

Either upgrade Dmac this week or hold for a bubble boy, dont trade your way into another possible trade ( i did with the J.Glenn )

Jamie

Thoughts on picken from bulldogs in the back?

@wheels_1987

great stats
great POD
Hamstring niggle
BE 105
i say hold and watch

Youngy

There are better options out there….

Joel

What are your thoughts on Kade Simpson…yes he delivers huge points but also puts in a couple of stinkers here and there (no one is answering) 🙁

@wheels_1987

If no one answers its probably because the answer has already been given in another post. have a read of the existing comments first then post a question. Also if you Log into this forum with an account you will get emails letting you know when you get replied too and you don't have to sit on this page refreshing

hedski

Cheers will give it a crack

Astounded

Seemed like a rhetorical question to me? That might explain why nobody answered!!!
Seriously what was anyone meant to say?

Cyril is Delicious

Defence options this week, already have Simpson.

Am looking at Bob Murphy, Laird, Hodge, Houli, would love anyone’s thoughts on who to get? Cheers!!

SCaddict

I'll be snapping up Hodgey this week even though I reckon there are better value options like Houli and McDonald (post his bye).

I can really make use of his DPP status for cover options in the way I'm structuring my final team which makes it worth paying the extra dollars and taking on the slightly elevated injury/rest/suspension risk.

MIke

Surely he is very unlikely to be rested. He’s had a nice lay down already this year and Hawks have lost more than they bargained so need to make a few games up on the leaders.
I’m bringing him in and leaving Simpson who I believe is just as much an injury risk due to the great way he attacks the ball.

@wheels_1987

Brodie Smith?

Cyril is Delicious

I’m waiting one more week on Smith, want to see him have a good game against a good side, and then he will come straight in next week.

@wheels_1987

with a BE of 118 its hard to argue with that

i need him this week to avoid donuts 🙁

Xav

Is saad an eligible d6 if short on cash and have already traded the ox

nice vis lekdog kepp em coming

SCaddict

I think he's a reasonable budget D6 and will be keeping him around until another elite defender drops to $400K which will happen more than once before the Supercoach finals.

I'm certainly in no rush to move him on and with that 96 in his pricing for the next 2 games will probably gain another $30-$40K. Same for the Ox for those who still have him instead of Saad.

I made the mistake last year of rushing too many rookies out the door before they reached their full potential in the race to full premo. A player averaging nearly 85 should be worth nearly $430K at the top end of their price cycle and he has excellent JS to boot. I can understand some coaches moving him on this week for bye reasons though so each to their own.

@wheels_1987

i like this write up
i traded him out for Sloan, so that was a no brainer and Dmac for B.Smith in DEF line

I wish i could keep Saad as he is a great player but i still have the Ox

My advice to SC's would be to do your best to keep at least one of the Ox or Saad is possible

SCaddict

Great to see that Jack Steele WILL PLAY this weekend according to GWS.

Just needs to dodge the snot vest now but I'll probably select him this week regardless.

@wheels_1987

Canberra Cannonball is going to be an absolute gun

Jacko

Out of newnes,oxleyvand saad which two should I upgrade ?

@wheels_1987

hold newnes
choose one of Ox or Saad
no reason you cannot hold all 3???

gish

Out – McIntosh, Brown, Saad

In – Hamling, Hodge, Bob Murphy

Gives me a defence of Hodge, Shaw, Murphy, Yeo, Newnes, Smith (Lever, Hamling).

Forward line is complete and only need to look at upgrading Cripps (M8) and Grundy (R2) down the track.

@wheels_1987

team looking the goods mate

whats your rank>?

Mac

Get Priddis now or after his bye?

@wheels_1987

BE of 138

Wait till after the bye

Youngy

Agreed, after the byes

Rob

Is Brandon Ellis a good pick?

Lowest score of 90 and highest score of 128

thoughts?

@wheels_1987

Gun
POD
Get him in if you need a POD

jezzahill

Just having a look at Ellis and Cotchin, they're having virtually identical seasons. Ellis has scored 1071 points in 10 games and Cotchin has 1072 points in 10. The only difference is that Cotchin is in about 8000 more teams, so if you're looking for a POD Ellis might be a good pick. If you're looking for a safe bet though, Cotchin is you man.

Doggie D

Had him from the start and loving it. Has potential to go large some games when he roams free

Youngy

Ellis if you want consistency, Cotchin if you want Big scores but probably also the low score or two

Spooners

Great stuff Lek, was wondering out of these two trades which you think is best.

N. Brown to Hodge, Tarrant to Dusty and Krakour to Dahlhaus
OR
D-Mac to Beams via DPP, Tarrant to Dusty and N. Brown to Hodge.
Your thoughts?

jezzahill

I like the second option because you're strengthening three lines rather than two. But both are good options.

General Soreness

Brilliant Vid Lek, love the start. BUT………………………………………………………STILL NO BOWLER!!!!

@wheels_1987

We need a bowler hat

Blue One

Navy Blue

Just like the feel down @ Carlton

@wheels_1987

Krak could possibly be elvated back into the Seniors
Beams Dusty and Hodge = gun team

Beams WAY BETTER than Dahlhaus

@wheels_1987

Thoughts Community?

OUT Lamb ($117,300) IN D.Smith ($433,500)
OUT Saad ($389,300) IN Sloane ($484,500)
OUT McKenzie ($207,800) IN Smith ($339,800)

Ps. I WISH that Lumumba had the bye this week and Saad next week because i would have got rid of Lumumba and held Saad

jezzahill

Looking for your thoughts community. Looking to being in another defender this week, tossing up between a couple of Hawks. Hodge is the obvious pick, but he is quite expensive. The other is Grant Birchall. Had a bit of a layoff with injury but is averaging 90. If he can stay fit from here on in I reckon he's value. What do you think community?

@wheels_1987

Birchall BE of 122
avoid this week

Go B.Smith for value or Hodge

jezzahill

Decided to go with Hodge. I'll keep an eye on Smith though, if he starts to go gangbusters I may trade Newnes out for Smith later on. Or even upgrade a rookie for him.

gareth

Stef Martin & Lewis or Jacobs & Hodge?

@wheels_1987

Jacobs based solely on his cheaper price

Cyril is Delicious

Thoughts on my trades this week community.

Goodes>Hamlimg

Clark>Danger

Saad>Hodge

And this will give me $161,000 next week.

Cheers!

@wheels_1987

good trades

zeesus

Shaw, Dusty and Lewis all in for me this week. Just trying to decide whether to hold NVB or Saad.. either will go in the next few weeks for Brodie Smith… as long as he scores well.

jezzahill

Hold Saad

@wheels_1987

cant beleive you still have NVB

chop his head off and eat the carcass

zeesus

I know I know.. its a disgrace. I have been focusing on other things. Now team is nearly at full premo.. 2 spots to go.

TRIGGER HAPPY

One thing to remember when trading is if the guy you are trading in (the keeper) will be in the top 10 in their position from now on till the end if the year. As they might have gone great guns so far but those points are not in your team you only get the points once you bring them in. Ie danger – do u see him scoring 110 plus per week going forward ? If so think about bringing him in. On the other hand Smith. Not in top 10 in Def but if u see him scoring 95-100 going forward bring him in as he will b top 10 from here on in when he forms part of your team. The keys I see are getting value and max points.

@Rem_Wah

Deledio, Hodge and Steele… All Good selections?

@wheels_1987

Hold on Steele. He has a bye next week and if he spuds it up this week he may not play for a while

unless you NEED a player and your willing to take a BIG risk

(think J.Glenn)

dave

Glenn is dead

@wheels_1987

Steele has the potential to Join Glenn in the next series of WEEKEND AT BERNIES

General Soreness

I am counting on him being a weekend at bernies! Mid/Fwd DPP 🙂

Youngy

Agreed hold on Steele, others are good

DPT of Fair Trades

This week I'm short on R12 players, and I have enough players to cover R13. So my trades this week are as follows:

Ibbotson to B. Smith
Rocky to Hodge
Saad to TMac

DEF now: Simpson, Enright, B. Smith, Hibberd, TMac, Oxley (Lever, Hamling)

R14 will trade Oxley to Pendles (via Hodge DPP) to complete DEF & MID.

@Rem_Wah

Dont trade out Ibbo. He just scored 122 and will make you $$$ with a low BE – You can look to move him on later in the season, but not right now IMO.

@wheels_1987

Dont trade out Ibbo
wasted trade

DPT of Fair Trades

Smith will out score Ibbo for the remainder of the season. His season post R3 has been affected by 2 concussions. He has has his bye and should now give a good run at it.

Ibbo has been inconsistent across the first 10 rounds. Yes, 120 against GC, but that's about it. Smith is more likely to ton up across the remainder of the season.

@Rem_Wah

I am really in a predicament guys… I screwed up my bye round planning and at this stage am only fielding 12 players..
Can someone please look at my team and advise me what trades I should look at doing…

440K in the kitty.
All help is appreciated…
comment image

theshark

concede and think long term. only player youd consider trading would be oxley. youre call

@wheels_1987

i disagree
Hold Ox
BE of 5
no point trading out the Ox

@Rem_Wah

I have B. Smith and Lewis though

The Ranger

Love ya work Lek. Thanks.
Mummy going down has meant that I've had to reverse my trading out of Griffen and go sideways to Sauce.
I was sooooo looking forward to trading out Griffen!
Even when I try and trade him he manages to shit me!

@wheels_1987

Hold Griffen
I have Andrew Swallow and im in the same baot, very frustrated but we must hold.

Until your team is perfect and your looking for a M8 upgrade, keep holding

You brought him into your team knowing 2 things
1. he can go BIG
2. He can SPUD it up BIG time

none of these are shocks

just hold him and see what happens

he has already lost $110 k trading him out locks in a massive loss

wayno1313

But he hasn't gone BIG

@wheels_1987

Neither has Swallow
But if it comes to getting your team "Full Premo" or doing a "Sideways Trade" whilst keeping rookies or Mid-Pricers on field i would get team full premo first and then trade out players.

Thats how im justifying Swallow. He is now my M8. I need to upgrade one more DEF position and my team is "Completed"

I will then look for ways to upgrade Swallow then

I dont have Griffen but like Swallow, there is no reason why both of these players cant pull out a 115pt + game.

Trades are precious and i just want the community to think twice about ALL trades and not follow the pack with a mass exodus of Griffen just yet (unless your in big trouble come round 13 and you seriously had plans to trade him out then as part of your team plan / structures)

Locked and Loaded

I've had Griff from the get go also. I'm hoping he is moved as a spare man across half back with all the injuries to GWS as he was late last week and I hope that turns his scores around. The guy is a gun just needs to get some momentum and with the injuries I think he'll get a chance to do more

Ben

Looking at upgrading Clark to either – Dahlhaus, S.Edwards or Gunston. Thoughts and suggestion welcomed. Im leaning towards Dahlhaus.

All I can afford. 🙁

@wheels_1987

S.Edwards as a massive POD
also Dahlhaus has maxed out whereas S.Edwards is still on the up

All 3 are technically POD picks at this point. Could also consider

Jack Riewoldt

Last 3 Rd Avg
108.67
Last 5 Rd Avg
108.60

derek

I mentioned Edwards a few days ago and he got no love from the community.

@wheels_1987

yea hes a big risk, but in my opinion no more so than Dahlhaus
apart from the good run the doggies have coming up.

Doggie D

Any Grundy owners holding him?? I've loved his work all year but not could be a time to upgrade to Sauce Jacobs for $100K

Marco_Polo94

AHAHAHA I haven't even finished the video yet but felt I had to say, what a brilliant start. Just the pick me up I needed after an extremely painful exam this morning. I love you Lek.

Mac

Suggest some trades. Got 670k in the bank.

Simpson, Shaw, Gibson, Newnes, Saad, Lever, Hamling, Pearce
Fyfe, Beams, Selwood, JPK, Parker, Treloar, Rockliff, Miller, Steele, Dumont, McKenzie
Goldstein, Maric, Read
Gray, Martin, Swan, Franklin, Tarrent, Goddard, Lonie, Hogan.

Was thinking of trading Saad, Miller and Lonie but not sure who to. Suggestions?

Dean

Miller & Rockliff is what your priority should be. Then maybe Saad although I personally don't mind Saad, im keeping him for a few more weeks, I think he deserves it
.
These people keeping Rocky is absurd, They are saying 2 to 3 weeks although he broke his ribs twice or for a better word re-fractured his ribs.
They will not bring in rocky prior to round 16 – However on the flip side if the medico's were stupid enough to risk such a stupid move and bring him in round 14 I assure you he wont be scoring 100+ scores.

For a person to fracture his ribs twice in a few weeks is extremely dangerous, he has a extremely high risk of puncturing his lung/s if he isn't given the right amount of time to heal FULLY.
So what I'm saying they will NOT risk this – I honestly cannot see Rocky coming back prior to round 16 at the earliest however more realistically round 18, that's minimum of 4 more games without a premium midfielder.

Dogs

Rocky to pendles
Miller to Sloane
Lonie to Deledio

Youngy

As always, Great stuff Lek

Dean

Told you he will be out sooner rather then later although at least he lasted up until the middle of the season. Glad I didn't bring him in.

Rawkus11

Trading Mummy/ Saad/ Miller for Martin/ Hodge/ Sloan

Look ok to you guys?

wayno1313

I'm not keen on Hodge but other than that looks good

Rawkus11

Why not keen on Hodge Wayno? Will definitely be one of the top def this year, has already had time off and hawks need to be at full strength for the remainder if the season to make top 2. No brainer for mine

wayno1313

He's very expensive. You are buying him at his peak price. I'd expect Simpson will average similar numbers for a lot cheaper price

Rawkus11

Sorry fellas, don't agree. His BE is 92 so has not peaked in price. He will be close to top 8 mid as well as top def.
Gotta go with my gut on this one!

Thanks for feedback tho!

@wheels_1987

I agree with Wayno
Look for value not peak price players

tom

trade newnes or oxley out this week?

@wheels_1987

neither if you can

l. Gibbs

Get in Sloane or Lewis?

@wheels_1987

I got Sloan
Flip a Coin

@wheels_1987

Just Quietly

Shaun Bloody Higgins $478,300

is worth more than

Micheal Barlow, Brent Harvey, Jobe Watson, Robert Murphy, Jarryd Roughead, Grant Birchall, Andrew Swallow, Nick Riewoldt, Cyril Rioli, Jack Zeibel, Toby Greene, Harry Taylor, Newnes, Gibbs and Paddy Ryder

Let that sink in community……

General Soreness

in the words of Higgo – Significant!!

Ruffles

Hilarious intro! Love it Lekdog.

Dingo

Need some help please. Trade either Ox or Newnes for Hodge. Ox has very low BE and Newnes has higher BE but people are preferring to keep Newnes. Or do I hold onto both and bring Hodge into Mid and trade out Miller?
