Hi lekdog getting no love from this on phone mate. Incomprehensible.

David

Hi Lekdog, regarding your YouTube Mo S C News experiment…the audio part is clear enough but the audio and visual are frequently out of sync which is very distracting and not as fluid and professional as your usual fully charged battery version.

Ethan

i got 2 choices, bring in bartel now for mckernan at f7(Bontempelli and him will rotate there), leave my self with 3 trades but the option to do a double downgrade then upgrade alex pearce sending smith into D7
or wait and let steele and o'brien max out then downgrade to bring in a bigger name like deledio which leaves me with 150k+steele/obrien's value of+pearce or brodie smith

Luke

in my opinion if you want the top scores, youre gonna have to pay the top dollar, option 2 for me

Luke

community who de we reckon to bring in out of dangerfield, priddis, beams or hannebry? or any other suggestions would be welcomed

Ethan

Dangerfield( be wary of sloane to return)
Hannebury
Priddis
Beams(nursing an Injury)

@Rem_Wah

Ward maybe.

Jones

Get on the Priddoris.
Cheaper, proven gun, and will (like Hannas and Danger) consistently score over 100.

Jones

With 7 trades left I was looking to go a bit risky and trade Higgins for Malceski, allowing me to go Krakouer to Bartel in the forward line.

Thoughts?

Phil

I like the second part. How much $$ would u be making in the 1st part? Because personally I don't see Malceski beating Higgins for the rest of the year, maybe equal him

Marcus

No dont trade a premo

Jones

Makes me around $150k in the first part. Could also go for Kelly as Lekdog suggested but not sure yet. Getting Bartel will complete my forward line and with the left over $$ I'll be able to go full premo next week in the midfield.

My reasoning is that Higgins has been good of late but is too inconsistent to be considered a premo. The hit that I could potentially lose in points (b/w Higgins and Malceski) I'll make up with a more consistent player in the forward line and in the midfield next week.

SideBySidebottom

Higgins is definitely not a premium player.

3. Votes

My defence is Shaw, Hodge, Enright, Yeo and Pickenn. Who do I get for my D6? Looking at Laird and Tmac who do I get? Got 506 K

randomcliche

Kelly.

Josh

Who to get a d6 got 508k ?

randomcliche

Similar to 3 votes… Kelly. I like the malceski gamble also.

Liam

Brodie smith to Malceski?

Luke

i reckon wait a week and see how malceski goes,

Liam

Or James Kelly?

Danners

Kelly is a better option

Derek

I’m annoyed I can’t bring in both Gaz & Bartel this week (trade out Griffen & Motlop) because they did better last week than I had anticipated and therefore their values went up more than I can now afford, plus there not going to get any cheaper. So have to paint fence this week and downgrade one of my rookies (or BSmith who is my spud D7).

Probably an easy question, but who to get first, Gaz or Bartel?

Brett H

Gaz clearly in my eyes due to his being potentially a doubled captains score

Derek

After next week my team will look like:

Shaw, Hodge, Newnes, Simpson, KK, Enright, (HGoddard, JKolo)

Gaz, Fyfe, Pendlebury, Priddis, JPK, Selwood, Parker, SMitchell, (Steele, McKenzie, Payne)

Godly, Jacobs, (Lucy)

Swan, Goddard, Gray, Dusty, Dahlhaus, Bartel, (Lambert, Daniels)

6 trades and approx $80k.

In a few weeks the remaining rookies, Steele, Daniels, Lambert would have fattened a bit plus I have cash.

KK, Newnes & SMitchell still need upgrading, who should I be looking at over the final weeks?

randomcliche

Def. Kelly. Hold newnes imo
Mid rocky

Derek

Yeah. I like SMitchell (who has served me well) to Rocky.

Sam knocks out 105’s but Rocky can go huge.

Derek

What about going SMitchell >> Gaz and Motlop >> Bartel. Have cash for that, and do Griffen to Rocky next week

Derek

Just have to live with Griffen one more week

randomcliche

Seems solid. Griff to ricky after that.

randomcliche

*Rocky

derek

I might get rid of SMitchell & griffen this week for gaz and bartel, next week will have the cash to go BSmith & Steele to Rocky/Sloane & Rookie. Keep Motlop as F7/M9

Hazey1977

TEAM RRRIIIIICCCKKKKYYYYY!!! (My Mrs has forced me into me watching The Voice

SideBySidebottom

Man up.

Mac

Thoughts on my team? 6 trades with 30k in the 50k in the bank

Shaw, Hodge, Simpson, Murphy, Gibson, Newnes, Pearce, Goddard
Ablett, Fyfe, Beams, JPK, Trelaor, Parker, Rockliff, Priddis, Steele, O'Brien, Lambert
Goldy, Maric, Read
Gray, Martin, Swan, Franklin, Dahlhaus, McKernan, Lonie, Daniel

So was thinking Mckernan to Bartel as I believe McKernan will not make cash and could get dropped and then Lonie to Payne via Lambert DPP and that gives me a loophole option with over 100k in the bank with 4 trades remaining.

Thoughts?

randomcliche

Solid.

Derek

McKernan might get dropped this week and make your decision easy.

Maric is under performing. Might have to bite the bullet there

Mac

So if Mckernan gets dropped, trade him, if he plays, upgrade Maric?

randomcliche

Maric will get pumped by Sandi this week. But I prefer a d6 upgrade or creating a d7/r3 swing like gawn if possible. Bartel goddard all cheap as chips though.

The Fat Cat

Hey community need a little help. Injuries have killed my year so only playing for league win that being said how much importance are we putting on getting the little master in our final teams. I have 2 trades left and can either use both trades to get Ablett in leaving me with Saad at d6 or use 1 trade to upgrade Saad to a premo and have 1 trade up my sleeve. Cheers in advance

randomcliche

2 trades without premo cover kinda hurts huh…Getting Gaz will increase your scoring potential no doubt but there is a snowflake chance in hell of all your premos staying on the park for the rest of the season. Suggest holding let rookies fatten when disaster strikes, like a one week suspension to teen wolf, paint the fence one up one down, with a swing set. Assumes you have a playing cover for saad this week. If not malceski or Kelly and hold. Cheers

Cam_H

I barely feel that I'm in a position to offer any advice to anyone given my RS performance this year (yes – 'me too' on the injury front), however with only two trades left I suggest that you hold both trades for injury protection. (I'm feeling very vulnerable with only six trades left, which was never my plan).

randomcliche

6 trades, you can afford to be aggressive if full premo I think.

Girdle

Is it worth fine tuning the team before finals with only four trades left? Or better to hold in case of injuries? Was thinking of strengthening bench cover: Smith to Kelly and McKernan to Ryder.

Donavan

Hold, you dont have the luxury of strengthening the bench with just 4 trades remaining.

Any trade you do make should be aimed at on-field players, to ensure you advance each week of the finals.

Girdle

Gotcha, thanks!

Derek

If McKernan is dropped trade

Murray

Hi I only have 4 trades left and have brown as D6,however his scoring has been substandard for a D6.

I have 110kcash, and only want to use 1 trade and can spend 383k. Would someone like hurn 366k, savage 364k, Kelly 344k or Malceski 348k be the best options. All are coming off tons (except Malceski who had 94). Is there anyone else community can consider as a good semi premo defender

Ethan

Find a rookie to downgrade in 2 weeks time, then you can bring in a premo

SideBySidebottom

Risky with only four trades left.

Murray

So what player or what should I do side by side

SideBySidebottom

Your strategy of one trade is safer than downgrading and burning an extra trade, I'm thinking Brown to Kelly sounds good,

Derek

Out of that bunch, Kelly by a mile.

Zeesus

Lek – would really appreciate your advice. My team is at full premo and very happy. 5 trades left but not much in the bank. I don’t have GAJ though.. My only really option would be beams and KK to Ablett and Kelly if I pulled the trigger. KK seems to be priced quite high at the moment. Stay put or go for it?

Tyler

I think those would be reasonablde trades if beams gets subbed/rested

Mac

I hope Beams' shoulder stays good. Don't want to trade him, he's been performing extremely well

C-Train

Hi, I’ve got 7 trades left but am stuck with what to do. I was planning on trading out Krak this week and bringing in Goldy (for Maric). Then next week trading out Selwood & Lever for a rookie & Gaz. However due to both posting massive numbers last week, its going to be very tight $$$ wise next to be able to afford Gaz. So should I trade in Gaz instead this week and wait/see on Goldy or vice versa. Teams at full premium already (only stain is Smith at D6 – but am willing to risk him)

randomcliche

Maric will get pumped this week by Sandi imo. But crows suns pies dons seems pretty good finals match ups (except for sauce). Consider holding if league wins is the focus because ablett is certainly the highest priority.

@KrazeeEyezK1lla

Is Beams to GAJ the way to go, all things considered?

For those like me who wanna get GAJ in but dont wanna blow 2 trades to do it, this could be an easy 1 trade fix to get him in. Yes Beams is a gun and has been killing it, but if his shoulder is buggered, you've gotta think his output may decrease? less tackling, etc.?

luke

Torn on this decision. I want Goddard in my team, but it would be either Franklin or Mitchell to go. At this stage, I have gone Franklin, but his finals draw looks very very favourable with GWS, St Kilda and Gold Coast. Already have JPK and Parker in the midfield, is it time to say goodbye to tmitch?
Or the very inconsistent/massive ceiling buddy with easy finals draw

randomcliche

I’ve got the nearly same question fan klip to Bartel…would value your thoughts community.

randomcliche

Fan klip aka Franklin thanks auto correct.

jimmy

Same boat, can bring in Ablett via swing for either Buddy, TMitch or Gunston.
TMitch worries me with tagging role & question mark on whether he could be dropped?
buddy and his lack of form.
gunston was brought for F7 but he is consistent but Hawks share points around.

@KrazeeEyezK1lla

love buddy but also thought about trading him. tippett breaking his hand may hurt bud up forward which could limit his scoring. playing againt WC this week and not sure who they're gonna stick on him, so who knows, he could go big. finals draw has to be taken into consideration

Danners

Franklin, only if you have a full premo team without injuries and about 5+ trades left. Just because they are playing a weak team doesn't he will go good

luke

Full premo with bont on the bench. 5 trades left… So that means I should do it? Can't make up my mind

Danners

You don't really do it if you have Bont on the bench unless you are in the top 1000, if so do it

Locked and Loaded

Have the opportunity to get Gaz but can only trade him for Wines. Is this a good or potentially bad move? Wines isn't exactly a bad SC player to be moving on but how important is it to get Gaz in?

@KrazeeEyezK1lla

I reckon it would depend on how many trades you've got and what the rest of your team is like. You'd take Gaz over Wines 99/100 though

Ben

Need help community.

Cripps to Zorko or Deledio

Danners

Deledio if you can, more reliable

Ethan

Deledio if you believe his Achilles will hold out

murray

Hi community
I only have 4 trades left and have brown as D6,however his scoring has been substandard for a D6 and feel he needs to be moved on.

Option A is to look at some players who will play every game from here like hurn 366k, savage 364k, Kelly 344k or Malceski 348k and these look to be the best options. All are coming off tons last round (except Malceski who had 94). I only have 383k to spend as I have 110k cash in bank. I know that they are only likely to ave 70-75 from here on.

Option B is to burn two trades now and downgrade him to a rookie and buy a super premo like rance Tmac picken or murphy

Option C is to do nothing at all this week and wait for the finals with 4 trades left

What do you think about these options, and Is there anyone else I could consider as a good semi premo defender if I went option A

@KrazeeEyezK1lla

If you think you'll get a 90 or so average for the rest of the year from a Mal/Kelly/Savage type, then go for that and just use the one trade.

Ethan

i think its good to go premo but not now, maybe in a few weeks before finals

SideBySidebottom

TMac, Picken and Murphy are Johnny come latelys. They do not have consistent enough records to be considered "super premos".

Francis

Want GAJ – Who to trade out for him, Boak or Wines?

Danners

Wines, less reliable

Ethan

Wines to cop less attention but is carrying a slight injury

jason

thoughts on callan ward

SideBySidebottom

Happy customer here.

Brook

will most likely be trading griffen to GAJ, mckernan to rookie (fwd, fwd/mid or ruck)

leaves me 3 trades and no ruck cover but if i wait it will be at least R20 until i get GAJ.

worth the gamble?

derek

yeah. Rucks have been pretty reliable this year.

SideBySidebottom

Can someone please tell me that Derek didn't just say that "Rucks have been pretty reliable this year".

Rawkus11

Got 8 trades left with one premo spot to be filled (D6). Want to build up some coin to trade Lever to hopefully anyone i like on the eve of finals.

Who has better js out of Fields/Leverde/Knight/Harmes/J Kolo?

Gonna bring it 2

Dean

Fields mate

RatRacer

I think Laverde should have the best JS. Bombers have definitely started looking to 2016 in their team selections. If there is any club that needs to keep getting games into their rookies it is Essendon. Not sure who has the best scoring potential for generating cash though.

Danners

Great stuff Lek! I am going insane this week and wielding the axe on Goldstein! This is so that I will have a robust team without too many risky picks.
Trades will be
Goldstein-Knight (swing Gawn)
McGovern-Picken
Next week
B.Smith-Yeo or someone around that range
Steele-Dusty or someone around that range
Leaves me with 2 trades and around $40k left
Thoughts community?

derek

clearly the pressure of Supercoach has gotten to you!

kofi

Why would you get rid of goldy he is still set to make you another $40,000 with a BE of 60 it’s a risky move Gawn is to inconsistent

McGovern to Goddard
And upgrade someone else picken will eventually be tagged

Get in Ablett

RatRacer

Insane is right…..or a masterstroke….I'm not sure which. One thing is for sure, you have cast iron cahones.
I'm a bit concerned at Picken as a safe "non risky" choice. He is on a good streak of form and has posted some great scores, no doubt about that. But up until this year his best season average is barely over 70. That worries me.

randomcliche

Dangers I reckon there is value in holding goldy 1 more week and value in other lines like Bartel goddard malceski that such shark maneuvers are not required this week. But next week…. #WishIhadgoldy….

randomcliche

*danners thanks auto correct

Tofor

Hey Danners…
My condolences on the madness…
Goldy is the best ruck in the game and a Brownlow smoky. Will average more than any ruck, possibly any player period for the rest of the season… and the roos have a soft run home.

Dean

I'm quite confused, I had it all worked out as I brought in Goddad last week & also Maynard into my midfield to give cover with DPP for Hodge & SAAD – and this week my play was to use 1 trade to go Krakouer to Bartel which is not a problem, however the problem I do have is Beams.
I am seriously concerned about Beams lasting the next few weeks with his shoulder issue.
Also the main concern is that I only have 3 trades left & $145,000 in the bank, so this week would be the only chance I could bring in GAJ and risk playing either Steel & Krakour in my forward line. I'm happy keeping Saad providing he starts playing soon.

My current team is:
Defence:- Shaw, Houli, Murphy, Hodge, Simpson. Lever (Saad, A Pearce)
Midfield:- Fyfe, Pendles, Mundy, Beams, Priddis, Dangerfield, JPK, Parker (Stretch, Lambert, Maynard)
Ruck:- Goldy, Blicavs (Read)
Forward:- Gray, Martin, Dahlhaus, Swan, Goddard, Krakouer (Steele, Dale)

Option 1
Krakour to Bartel

Option 2
Beams to GAJ

Thanks in advance all.

Ethan

Krakour-Bartel
only cause if beams goes down, you still have an up down trade to get him to beams

THEBEARD

So lads as D6 would you play Goddard, Edwards or Maynard.

I want to take Kelly-Malckeski though I either do that and wait for Ablett for 2 weks or I bite the bullet take Gaz and run with one of them as D6 with the other 2 on the bench. My view is Gaz is worth the extra 20ish I'd get out of Kely/Malckeski over Goddard/Maynard etc.

Other question is do I trade out Wines or Parker for Gaz? Leaning towards Wines.

Ethan

Maynard
Goddard
Edwards
Wines if you want gaz

Mac

Goddard or Bartel

Luviboy1

Both have hit rock bottom prices. Flip of a coin, but Id go Bartel.

RatRacer

Losing patience with Selwood. Now there is talk of more time up forward.

I hate trading out premos if they are playing….. but I have a feeling in my gut that Sidebottom is getting ready to explode.

I've expended my 2 trades this week to get Gaz. After this week I have no cash and 6 trades.

Worth painting the fence next week to trade out Selwood and get Sidebottom?

@KrazeeEyezK1lla

you've got a good amount of trades left, so roll the dice

Luviboy1

For those of us with Dayne Beams, what are we doing? I'm considering trading him to Gaz after reading this article: http://www.afl.com.au/news/2015-07-22/beams-battl

dinomike20

One spot left in my forward line to be full premo, only have $476k to spend on it, I'm tossing up between Goddard and Bartel… thinking Bartel will be a point of difference… thoughts?

Rest of my fwd line is Martin, Gray, Bont, Deledio, Swan.

dinomike20

Just saw Mac's same post above! Bartel it is!

beezneez

With only 4 trades left, is it worth trading Treloar or T.Adams to get Ablett this week., and if so, which one?
Steele is currently at M8 and will remain so with the Treloar trade. Steele will move to D6 for T. Adams (C. Daniel currently M6).
Either trade will follow J Lonie to H. Goddard to enable cash generation.
The other option is to wait a week because the prices of all players will still allow the trades to proceed. The beauty of waiting a week will allow further analysis of the performances and availability of H Goddard and Beams and Fyfe who are currently under injury clouds.Was intending to do a straight swap of Adams to Bartel so as to have someone actually playing but believe GAJ is a priority and I believe Adams can score similar to Bartel anyway. Any thoughts?

Ethan

there is so much wrong with this. So lets start off
Steele cant play defence
Daniel cant play midfield
So im not sure what your plan is

beezneez

Sorry about that – what a doofus I am!
Meant Steele will move to F6 (not D6) and Daniel is currently F6 (not m6).
i.e H, Goddard is Def/Fwd – trade in for Lonie.
trade Treloar to Ablett + Steele at M8 = C Daniel F6
or trade T. Adams(currently F7/8 injured) to Ablett and swap with J Steele (now becomes F6) + C. Daniel F7/8

Wife was talking to me while I was trying to write the post..

@randomcliche

Sounds to me like you are two short of full premo. M6 and F6. Suggest with 4 trades left you need to look towards your finals with some one up, one down manouvers. Bartel this week would be a good start. You might just have to let Ablett sail bud, but he does up the points scoring potential to any team that brings him in. If you have two of pendles, rocky, goldy then I suggest you just captain loophole the f out them to try and minimise the captain points lost against teams with him. If you have higgins in Def, consider bringing kelly in def swinging him fwd, if you can do a straight trade up to get a premo. (i.e. instead of one up/down combo. I wouldn't go less than 1 trade unless there are 3 rounds or less to go. See how ya go. (i.e. I think you can 40 points up F6 position more reliably than getting gaz imo.

beezneez

Thanks for that you make a lot of sense. my team is fairly strong except for that M8 position but am reasonably happy having Steele there for the time being as well as Adams at F6 until he had his brain fade. Probably need to look closely at possible injuries to Fyfe and Beams with regards to any Ablett trade. Some people are suggesting Fyfe could be a late out (apparently took his suit with him). I'm now thinking T. Adams to Bartel (had him round one) might be the way to go to achieve a league win. Bartel won't be any cheaper and the trade will net me some cash. Thanks once again for the input.

Youngy

Thoughts Community?

Boston to Knights

Smith to Tmac

Leaving me with 8 trades

Liam

Solid.

Pete

Community!

For my final forward spot, do I go a dahlaus, Goddard or bartel?

Thank you!

derek

15 out of the top 20 overall have both goddard and Dahlhaus. None have bartel (yet)

SideBySidebottom

Bartel in the forward line is like Ablett in the midfield and Golstein in ruck.

@randomcliche

I generally avoid the Dons where another reliable choice presents itself. I did however go Bartel to Goddard some time back and have no spare trades to reverse such situations. Others are both fine.

matthew

hi community thoughts on my trades for this week
lever to tmac
hamling to fields

this finishes my backline but means i am probably stuck with brodie smith for the rest of the year

derek

I've postedif that means you are stuck with BSmith…don't do it.

derek

if that means you are stuck with BSmith…don't do it.

Tulendeena

If Saad isn't names, who under 460k should I get?

Malceski worth looking at after 2 90's?

Hazey1977

I bought him in last week with the hope he would go back to premo level and allow me to use the cash made to upgrade elsewhere!

Eatemalive

Kelly me thinks is a better option

Luke

Do you have tom McDonald?

Tyler

Is marc murphy a good option still or is it worth getting someone else around 550k

Ethan

pod yes, but other players like cotchin will score more just for playing in a winning team

SideBySidebottom

Wouldn't touch the ducking Cotchin.

derek

$550k is a lot of coin for Murphy. I might consider him if he was $450k. Not for his price when you can get Rocky for less.

General Soreness

Its not real unless its delivered with a BOWLER!

…..nice vid Lek, star……

…..need a Bowler…..

Hazey1977

McKernan to H.Goddard and Selwood/Lewis to Ablett

or

Hamling to H Goddard and Wines to Ablett?

Hearing Wines has an injury cloud? Selwood has been stiffing me all season though!

Mac

Apparenlty Fyfe may not play due to the cork he received from Sam Mitchell. If anyone sees Mitchell around, kick his ass for me.

Derek

Sammy is in my team, but he’s making way for Gaz this week

Donavan

Believe Ted Richards tried to kick Sammy's ass last week, and look where that got him.

Also Fyfe needs a week off from a cork he received 2 weeks ago???? code for rested by Ross

@randomcliche

Please, for the love of Gary's father, no.

Mac

Do I trade Mckernan so I can get Bartel or do I trade Maric becuase he is losing points due to Hampson. I was hoping Mckernan would get dropped to make my choice easier but it isn't to be.

@randomcliche

Maric has a reasonable finals run…Bartel is premium goodness…depends who you could/would replace Maric with…Gawn?

Jeff

Do I trade out Selwood or Sloane for Gaz?

Derek

Who else do you have

Tyler

Out of those two I would kick selwood out. Sloanes back in and apparently he's raring to go

Andy

Hey community,

If I have the VC on Gaz and C on Goldy would I be able to use a Richmond player (Ellis) as a loophole if Gaz goes big again? Can I change my captain during games if the captain has not played.

Thank you.

Derek

you can change C & VC after the weekend games have started.

If you like what Gaz does, you put C on a no player and you get Gaz as cap. Have to do this before the start of Richmond game

If you don’t like Gaz score, you leave C on Goldy

Andy

Thanks mate

@randomcliche

I'm a big fan of setting the VC loophole up and reversing it only after not seeing what want from Gaz. i.e. putting the C on Goldy only once Gazza has broken his shoulder…how did I just type that last bit….*shudders*

tom

smith to malceski or kelly? leaves me 2 trades

@randomcliche

If you have full premo+1 yeah….if you in the hunt overall yeah….if you like the gamble, odds on this will gain you points yeah….then ride lady luck on injury horse home.

Tyler

Also should I trade out Brodie Smith, keep lever as d6, and trade in gaff or shaw? Or should I wait a week for lever to go up, trade him out and get someone like armitage?

Carter

Hi community

Lever to J Kolodjashnij
Wines to Ablett

6 trades left, can upgrade my D6 to premium next week with 2 more trades. Leaving me 2 for finals, full premo.

Do this or fix up my D6 this week, keep Wines instead of Gary, leaving me 4 trades.

percyp

In Gaz out Boak Treloar or Heppell? Any thoughts?

percyp

Or fyfe? Others require 2 trades.. 5left

@randomcliche

Fyfe might be the shark move of round….but I'll reckon he'll come good. #Fyfeislife….Why you make Lekdog angry anyway? 🙂

@randomcliche

in response to percyp…
