cant decide toss up between Liam picken or Luke hodge?




dumont or Bont to Steele?


Bont to Gray or Bont to Bartel in a few weeks, not sure if I will have enough for gaz if I get Gray


Upgrade or hold on to Smith?




Current midfield is Fyfe, Pendles, Danger, Heppell, Shiel, JPK, Beams and Wallis, looking to upgrade Wallis, who do we all think is the best option under 600k? Thanks


Some nice options at the Saints with Joey (118 average, 584k), Armitage (116, 555k) and Steven (109, 545k) all pulling big numbers. Hannebery (118, 585k) would be my pick though


luke parker easily




Mundy or Hanneberry…..


Absolute gold Lek!


Hi guys,

So I’m leading in my Leagues and there’s some big cash to be won. What do you guys recommend I do next? I know every next move is crucial, so a little help would be greatly appreciated.

Defence: Shaw, McDonald, Higgins, Newnes, Smith, Simpson (Lever, Pearce)

Midfield: Pendlebury, Fyfe, Priddis, Heppell, Dangerfield, Cripps, Lewis, Wines (Boston, McKenzie, Amon)

Rucks: Goldstein, Martin (Read)

Forward: Gray, Swan, Goddard, Walker, Deledio, Lonie (Lambert, Steele)

I have 8 trades and $192,000 on the bank. I was thinking Cripps to Hannerbery and maybe just cop the donut for Martin. Any other ideas community?



Trade out Mckenzie
Swing Lambert into midfield
Swing Read into forward
Trade in Brooksby

You now have a mid/fwd swing, fwd non-playing player to loophole, ruck cover and you traded out a player who is unlikely to get a game


Shaun McKernan for Jack Lonie. Then switch with Read to cover Martin's donut and bring Steele onto the field.


Congrats on the leagues mate, hope you hold on. I would look at addressing your F6 first. McKernan might be an option for you at 299k, gives you ruck flexibility


+1 on the Ruc/Fwd swing, and Cripps to Rocky.


Need to trade Bennel this week and Tarrant next. Who are the forward options i need to be looking at? Already have Gray, Martin, Bont and Goddard, Thanks a bunch!


I would say the best premos (that you don't have) in the fwd line are Nick and Jack Riewoldt, Zorko, Buddy and Deledio


or Swan, Titch, Bartel, Dahlhaus

frank s

Deledio must have


ranked 400th overall, been unlucky not to be higher due to poor captain choices…

thoughts on either

scott thompson (ade) and 5K in bank or
jordan lewis and 80K in bank..




Jordy Lewis is your man


If you are full premo, spend every cent if you think they're better. I think they're both occasional best mids in team behind Mitch/Hodge and Sloane/Danger…..yeah…. there's ya answer, Sloane 4-6 weeks, makes him #2 mid for half the rest of the season. When both teams are full strength I'd take Lewis…


See comments below on uncertainty around how long Sloan is out for. Might be back sooner. Oh without looking at your team I like Armitage over both.

wise old man

Liam Shiels


Don't really like either of them, would prefer Steele Sidebottom personally around that price range


(or Rocky)


Wasted a trade on sloane… thought it was 4-6 weeks but it was 1 week. ffs


Says minimum of a month on crows website


They said he was back this week on league teams


Hope thats correct cause ive got him benched but i cant see it refractured jaw think they will be cautious with him


Won’t b back for 4-6


Really? That could be great news! I held him last week because I had more than enough players on the field.


Thoughts on bailey dale to Brooksby via cox?

It's to cover for maric and i really don't want a donut next week



If you have enough trades mate. But good trade otherwise, I think Caleb Daniel took Bailey Dales spot in the team


I would have 6 trades left


This most likely is a silly question but can you afford McKernan?

I think using a trade on Brooksby is a waist of a trade. Brooksby will score 40 points tops in my opinion so its not going to matter much unless your playing for rank then every point counts.


Armitage or Callan ward ? Please lekdog reply to me


Armitage hands down mate.


Trade rough?


Roughy is at least another two weeks away. Watch the video on the Hawks website


Don't know who ta trade oxley for? Houli or Picken. Thoughts?


Picken hands down.




Is 5 trades too little after this week?


Yeah it is mate, but I'll be on 5 trades also after this week. Try and keep your bench cover half decent.

I have Krakour and I would really love to keep him as my F7 & M9 cover even though he has been dropped this week.


You can’t do much about it now


Depends on the state of your team. I'll likely have 9 trades after this week, but if you're perfectly happy with your team, with a side full of solid premos, you wont even need to use them unless theres a serious injury.


Yes, but depending on your team it could be bad or really bad


Nick Holman or Nick o brien


Yep hold


Anyone considering Leuenberger?


I would hope not


Having Krakour dropped and Saad looking like he might be rested really hurts. I'm stumped don't know what to do. I have 7 trades left and $83,000 in the bank..

My team is as follows.
Defence:- Shaw, Houli, Hodge, Simpson, Saad, Lever (Hamling, A Pearce)
Midfield:- Fyfe, Pendles, Priddis, Beams, Mundy, Dangerfield, JPK, Parker (Boston, Stretch, Lambert)
Ruck:- Goldy, Blicavs (Read)
Forward:- Martin, Gray, Dahlhaus, Swan, Edwards, Krakouer (Clark, Dale)

I'm looking to go Clark to Steel, then Dale to Gunston because I really think Krakour is keeping as my F7 & M9 via lambert emergency. I then need to figure out how in the world im going to upgrade my final defender. (I still think Saad is worthy as a D5, D6)

Any ideas would greatly be appreciated.


If you wanna keep krak as cover trade Boston and Clarke. I’d bring in Caleb Daniel for Boston swinging krak mid. Krak can still cover most mids except Dalh. 2 doggies should cover dalh. This gives you more cash for someone (with mid fwd dpp) like zorko T.mitchell et al.

You could also go Gawn (with your trading approach) to give you some ruck cover.

I think both of these are better than Jack ‘my finger is pretty stuffed’ Gunston.

Upgrade lever asap after this and ride your luck home. Cheers


I would prolly trade krak BTW. And you don’t have Steele. Get instead of Caleb. Krak and Clarke for delicious Deledio and Steele imo.


I wouldn’t keep Krak. There must be a reason he wasn’t picked. Move him on. Steele is DPP


Hi everyone

I have a full premium team with 9 trades left

Im thinking doing wines averaging 104 to armitage averaging 117

Is this a good trade or just an unnecessary sideways trade ?


No way – hold on that trade for now. There's every chance Wines could outscore Armitage week to week, so it's not worth it for a few points here and there. You want that trade up your sleeve for finals in case of injury/form slumps.


"unnecessary sideways trade"


Hi Community

This is my current team:

Def: Shaw, Gibbo, Ox, Simpson, Hooker, Smith (Lever, Hamling)

Mid: Fyfe, Pendles, Danger, Beams, Wines, Parker, JPK, Hodge (Boston, Lambert, Amon)

Ruc: Goldy, Nic Nat (Cox)

Fwd: Gray, Swan, Martin, Buddy, Goddard, Bont (Steele, Lamb)

Unsure what to do this week I want to trade the Ox out because he has a high BE and I want to get Ablett in 2-3 weeks.



6 trades and 12k in the bank


Trade Boston to Payne (a non playing saints player to loophole with)
Then trade Oxley to Armitage or Hanners via Hodge dpp
Hope I helped


Hi community, I'm playing for a cash league and ranked 3rd on the ladder. It's a really close ladder with teams all within 2-3 games from each other

Defence: Shaw, Simpson, Gibson, Newnes, Smith, Lever (Hamling, Pearce)

Midfield: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Beams, JPK, Parker, Wines, Cripps, Jelwood (CEY, Boston, Lambert)

Rucks: Goldstein, Nic Nat (Read)

Forwards: Gray, Martin, Mitchell, Dahlhaus, Swan, McKernan (Krakouer, Dale)

I have 7 trades left and $295,400 in the warchest. First trade I'm making is CEY to Steele and second trade maybe Pearce to Hodge or lek dog's man Bob Murphy or Cripps to Hodge, Hannebery or Armitage. An elite premium scorer, don't care if I have 3 swan midfielders. Would love your thoughts community


Cey to Steele seems good, I think Pearce up is a bit of a waste of cash, wait a couple of weeks for one of the other Defense rookies to fatten then go up. I like Cripps to Hannebery. That takes you to 5 trades with enough cash to do your last two upgrades (f6 and d6)….3 trades is tight but doable ( I’m hoping cause that’s all I’ll have left in a fortnight)


CEY to Steele is good. I’d go Cripps to rocky. This saves even more cash for upgrading next week and keeping more swings like mckernan. Next week Hodge from def rookie and Boston or krak to Deledio.


Thanks Lek, great vid once again, though you do need to harden up and go and give some blood.

Little kids, cute cherubs with wavy hair and big smiles and hugs need blood when they get sick.

Go give them some.

Just go in. plonk yourself down and don’t look. It’ll be over before you know, and you prob won’t even notice.


Hi community, i'm in need of some advice. I'm looking at maybe one trade this week, which is to bring in Steele to generate some cash for the coming weeks to bring in Ablett or some other ultra premo for Cripps. 5,900k in the kitty and 9 trades left at this point . Should i bring him in or hold the trades and maybe bring in a different rookie later on in the season? If i do bring him in it would probably be for CEY, but could also considering dumping Hogan. This is my current squad,

Defence: Shaw, Hodge, Simpson, Newnes, Ibbotson, Smith (Hamling, Beasley)

Mids: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Priddis, Kennedy, Griffin, Lewis, Rockliff, Cripps (CEY, Boston, Kavanagh)

Rucks: Goldstein, Maric (Brooksby)

Forwards: Gray, Martin, Goddard, Swan, Wingard, Zorko (Hogan,Read)


Cey to Steele seems a no brainer, makes cash and opens swing set. Cripps is due to start bleeding some cash so consider trading though a week or so early to bring gary in IMO


Trade Fyfe. Your team is too strong! Cripps to Gary at some point seems pretty logical. I don’t think it matters re CEY or hogan. You are not going to run them anytime soon.

You could look to get in picken in def to set up a def mid swing set in future. Allows you to move smith to bench till he starts coming good.

Good luck and well done a solid team.


CEY to Steele

Cripps to Gaz. Be bold… Make a shark move!


Hello community,

So I was wondering if I could have some thoughts/ideas on my current team at the moment (currently 8 trades remaining and $114,400 in the bank):

Defenders: Shaw, Houli, Newnes, Ibbotson, Hodge, Lever (Hamling, A.Pearce)

Midfielders: Fyfe, Pendles, Hannebery, JPK, Gray, Selwood, Cripps, Wines (Boston,

D.McKenzie, Amon)

Rucks: Goldstein, Maric (Read)

Forwards: Martin, Dahlhaus, Swan, Goddard, Franklin, Ziebell (Steele, Lambert)

I believe there isn’t a great deal left to do in upgrades, just the last Defense spot (D6) once either the likes of Hamling/Lever/A.Pearce fatten up enough to possibly trade one of them to Bob Murphy I’m eyeing off and last Midfield spot in hopefully going Cripps to GAJ (M8).

What do you all reckon?

Cheers 🙂


Yeah looks like sit tight is the right option though cripps could start to bleed some cash (not to mention he’s been in a moon boot this week…) I’m playing for overall so have gone cripps to rocky while it’s possible…… Consider this as you have trades up your sleeve as with your bank you could easily go lever/Hamling straight to a fallen Defense premo leaving 6 for LTI’s


That is once lever/Hamling fatten appropriately


5 trades left with 19,200k in the bank. Need to fill that last defender slot but not sure how over the next few weeks.
need some help with leslie not playing and not many ways for me to gain cash
Shaw, tmac, hodge, taylor, simpson, hamling (lever, leslie)
fyfe, pendle, priddis, kennedy, parker, selwood, lewis, wines (boston, kavagnah, lambert)
goldy, nic nat ( reda)
martin, gray, swan, goddard, franklin, deledio ( steele, goddard)


G’day, 5 trades is getting tight! (I’m on 5 as well but full premo). I’d probably sit tight for a few weeks and loophole Hamling and lever, should be able to get 60-70 out of one of them. If no Injuries for the next few weeks chop one of those defenders and upgrade to a premium, but I’d leave this a bit. If you happen to lose a premo to an LTI in the next couple I’d look to make a little cash there (pick up a fallen premo) to upgrade one of those backs….


G'day Mo and the community!! Sitting around 600!! 15k and 9 trades left. Got Maric out for a week, was thinking downgrading Lonie to lambert, then Maric to Bliclavs about 100k leftover after. Or was thinking just make the 1 trade Lonie to Mckernan for dual position and bench big Ivan!! What's everyone's thoughts…Cheers


if you're going for the cash, you've gotta be bold. McKernan up against Gawn this week. I would bench Maric and get McKernan in and bank on him getting 90+. Bombers will look to come out gun's blazing this week, so he could have a good game. Then you've got yourself back up too

Rick Grimes

Gawn will smoke him…I hope.


10 trades left 130k in the bank. Not sure what trades to make? Advice please!

Shaw, Simpson, Hodge, Gibson, Murphy, Newnes, Pearce, Hamling
Fyfe, Priddis, Beams, JPK, Parker, Selwood, Treloar, Rockliff, Dumont, Steele, Lambert
Goldstein, Maric, Read
Gray, Martin, Swan, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Lonie, McLean, Goddard.

Not sure wether to trade Maric. I need to move McLean and Dumont on as McLean isn't playing and Dumont is bleeding cash.


Keep Maric, and trade for McKernan as ruck and fwd cover.


Hi Mo and this beloved community, My trade options this week is to trade out Oxley for either Hodge, Newnes or Murphy and also trading out Wallis swinging steele to the middle and bringing in either Lids, Zorko or Wingard. I really like Zorko but my fear is his output will be affected by the return of Rockliff and Hanley…..
Your thought will be greatly appreciated community…………


How many trades does everyone have before any trades this round?


11 at the moment – how are you going Jeff?


Only have 6 trades left


6 here. Not enough!


12 with full premo


7. down to 5 now. went Cripps to Rocky and Boston to Caleb Daniel via DPP

Canardly See

12 – will use 2 this week.


10, may use 1 this week.


My midfield

Fyfe, Pendlebury, Heppell, Griffen, Cripps, Wines, Sloane, Rockliff, (Ellis-Yolmen, Boston, Dumont)

Will upgrade Griffen, Cripps, Sloane and Ellis-Yolmen to Ablett and 3 others.

Which 3 are must haves

Hannebery, Priddis, Beams, Dangerfield, Cotchin, Kennedy, Parker, Jack?


Good question Kev – it's not easy to choose from a group like that.

Beams and Priddis – YES and YES – neither of these guys have dropped below 100 since Round 4, they're in great form and you know exactly what you'll get from them.

Dangerfield and JPK – not quite as consistent as Beams and Priddis but can pull out huge scores.

Hannebery – he's in ripping form at the moment. I'd never been a huge fan SC wise but hard to knock his form this year!

Parker, Jack and Cotchin are all stars but still worry me – they can score very well but also have quiet games – not sure if you want them giving you a 65 during an important final.

So if it was me…Beams, Priddis and either Danger or JPK. Good luck!


Beams, Dangerfield and Hannebery or Parker


thoughts on shane edwards?


I have enough money to buy any two defenders to finish my premium defence. I already have Hodge, Shaw, Hibberd and Newnes. I cannot decide between Simpson, Houli and Bob Murphy! Please Help!


not THAT much different between them IMO, but Houli and Simpson can go pretty big on their day so I'd have them edging Murphy


My trade plan:

This week:
OUT: Sloane, Oxely
IN: Simpson/Houli/Murphy
Via Saad DPP

Next week:
OUT: Boston, Hamling
IN: J.Kolodjishni/Maynard, Caleb Daniel

Round 17:
OUT: Saad
IN: Ablett/Priddis/Rocky/Armitage/Hanners

Full PREMIUM with 4 trades left. Thoughts?


I would personally hold Hamling on your bench. seems like he'll continue to get a game, especially with Roughead going down, plus his bench scores are pretty solid.


posted this before I saw he was out btw


Best 2 forward options out of Franklin, Riewoldt, Dahlhaus, Zorko, Lids, Ziebell, Edwards..thanks community!


Lids and Dahl for me.




Zorko last 5 rounds avg 104 and looks real good
Lids best option i think to finish your 2nd option


Dahl starting to look tired and is getting a lot of attention from the opposition at the moment. He'll prob go massive this week now I've said that.


Buddy and Dahl

Dave Dreamer

Any advice on my team please. 12 trades left, $470k in the kitty

Hodge, Simpson, Shaw, Houli, Murphy, Enright (Ibbotson, Saad, Hambling)
Fyfe, Pendles, Beams, JPK, Priddis, Armitage, Danger, Hanners (Neale, Cripps, Lambert)
Goldy, Biclavs (McKernan)
Gray, Dusty, Lids, Mitchell, Swan, Dahl (Zorko, Steele)

Was thinking hold trades this week and then go Cripps up to GAJ? Ranked 1st and going for league win.


They even let you have 3 defence bench players. Nice

I’d be looking at bringing Libba in to your team, maybe TBC to strengthen your rucks


If this team is real, I am jealous.
Mostly about how you have 3 DEF bench players.


love seeing teams that magically have 1 million extra dollars and a 3rd def bench option.
Hey you missed out showing us you still held Ablett on your bench


That's some team with 12 trades left.


All playing, Full premium team! 12 trades, and a lazy $470k in the kitty!

Verification pls!

Ashley J

Check out LekDog's old channel!!


Do i keep oxley or trade i only have 3 trades with full premo except for ox thoughts fellas?


Hold for now, if you have a good run and still have those 3 trades come finals, then maybe upgrade him.


Hold, trades are worth a lot if you only have 3


Not sure if the article will come, but what are we all doing VC and C wise?

Thinking I might take another punt on Pendles tonight with the VC, into Fyfe C if it fails.


Yer doing the same I think mate.

Canardly See

Pendles for VC, Fyfe for C, or take a punt on Goldstein as VC


Last 2 weeks I've gone vc goldy with fyfe C, hasn't failed me yet


think I've changed my tune and will do the same as you. No Kornes for Port anymore though so Pendles could have a bit of space. decisions….


Did Swan VC which I’ll be locking in.

Flaccid Jaff

Last defensive upgrade. Enright, Picken or Houli?


Dogs have easier run home now so could lower Pickens Avg a bit?
Enright is exceeding all expectations atm but cant see him keeping up that Avg
Houli best option of the 3 for mine


In the same boat as you.
I've gone with Picken.
Started wuth a 56, 51 and 64 in his first three.. since then, his lowest score is 89, and he's only gone below 100 3 times in his last 9 games.. including a 143, a 140 and a 120 last week. Looks consistent, regardless of opponent


no trades from me this week

looking at getting every last dollar from Hamling and Boston to hopefully pick budget-priced players
have 159k in the bank with 5 trades left atm so need to hold anyway for the next 2-3 weeks


who is the best to trade in this week?


I can narrow it down a bit for you lets see…………..
Hodge then Houli then Murphy other two pass


I wouldn't rule out picken, although I do think he is a worse option than the others you named. Laird I think won't be able to keep up his scoring once smithy is back to his best (hopefully).


In my opinion, you listed them in order.
I've got Hodge, and gone with Picken for my final defensive spot.


Agreed. Still not much love for Picken and I don't know why? He lost his tagging role after round 3. Since then he has been arguably the best performing SC back in the league let alone one of the best in SC. He is averaging 113 in his last 9 games with a game low of 89. You cant argue with that.


Yep – did the math and worked this out myself as well, impressive and very consistent – also averaging 8 tackles a game over the past 9 games


Hamling out


not playing this week?


Yeah Hamling hasn't travelled. Confirmed McLean, Honeychurch, and Roughhead also out. Prudden to debut.


He hurt his back in a marking contest right near the end of the last weeks match. Must be still sore


Derek don't hurt me too much this week plz


You know I still have Cloke & Griffin! Can’t hurt anyone too much.


Do we really think that JPK is over priced at 510K?
I traded him in for Watson this week. Looking for a Mid around the 500k mark. The only other one that I looked at was Sidebottom. Not going near Rockliff for the third time this season, and already have selwood, not that he is a good option at the moment anyway.


Am going all in on Rockliff. Live and die by the rock


I died by the rock, then came back to life, then the rock killed me again. I will not be revived once more by rocky for fear he will just kill me again.
All this dieing is not good for my mental health.


I agree, dying isn't good, but you gotta get a set of rock's and get in the rock


By the sounds of it I need more rock in my life.
I might contact Dwayne Johnson


No way is JPK underpriced at 510k. towards the start of the season getting him under 550k was an absolute steal


Gday guys

pretty happy with my team but no money left for top players

Im looking at offloading mitch wallis

Do i wait for a week and grab ablett or do i grab the best available?

Also need to bring in a forward

Currently have gray, buddy, martin, goddard, swan and gawn

Gawn will make way next week or the ine after

Im looking at deliedo or dahlhous


Wait a week as he is the best available


cripps for rockliff or lewis?




Hamling, mclean and honeychurch out against the suns, while josh prudden (who is supposedly a pretty good rookie) is making his debut and libba is getting better


bloody Hamling


Yeah painful Re: Hamling. Leaves me no defensive bench cover..
Freaking McKenzie from St Kilda!! Where is he?!


Thinking of going Mitch Clark -> Steele

Would you trade out Wallis or Cripps..? and for Hannebery, Dangerfield, Beams, Priddis or Rockcliff (considering value, price, likely output from here on in, risk etc.). Can't decide! ha ha.


Good trade.

And I'm getting rid of Cripps this week. High BE and hurt his ankle last week. Knowing my luck he'll go out this week and have a blinder haha if Cripps is not in your final team plans, it's a good time to pull the trigger. He's done well


Similar boat. Have Cripps, Wallis and Sloane still. One of them will become Rocky tonight pending teams. Cant believe Sloane will be back as rumoured on league teams..


Hey are you sure about Sloane? Painful if true as I got rid of him when I heard 4-6 weeks? Got any links to him being expected to play?
So you guys would probably cull Cripps before Wallis? Really can't split them?
I traded in Rocky before his last injury and it's a massive risk to jump back on.
I've already got Parker and Kennedy from the Swans in mid, going Hannebery seems a bit Sydney heavy, but he's just been doing so well consistently. I think Dangerfield can come down a bit, Priddis not quite as consistent.. maybe Beams is the way?


only reasoning I have to cull Cripps first is the injury and moon boot. plus he seems like he won't hit his BE this week. am a little concerned that Wallis may tag GAJ this week which could result in a low score also, but am sticking with culling Cripps


No just someone on here mentioned that on league teams last night they were expecting Sloane to play. Crows website still says a month so got to assume he wont be playing.


Thanks for the pointers guys.
I'll be keen to see the line ups.. especially regarding Cripps… whether McKenzie is selected…Lambert… Kavangh.. Steele…
If Cripps is selected, I'll still probably go Wallis to Hannebery.
Tell you what though, I'm mighty tempted to go for Armitage as a bit of a POD.


Any news on Harley Bennell? Will he play this week? Hearing different reports from yes to 4-5 weeks to season. Anyone got any actual facts?


I read he's not playing this week, but they reckon he'll be available for selection next week


Looking to strengthen my backline this week with the following trades Boston or Krak to Payne (Non Playing DPP) and Alex Pearce to Hodgey. Who to trade out Boston (Playing) or Krak (Omitted)?
