Thanks Lekdog, love your work. Surely Mundy does get rested at some stage though?


Lovin ya work lekdog!

Charlie Hunt

Great work Lekdog. Thanks for keepen on trucken with the year. I'm tossing up between GAJ for Danger or Bennell. Gut tells me Bennell with considerable extra cash to make my few trades left more valuable is strangly the safe option. Thoughts?


I'm also looking at Bennell, could be a solid option as he tries to prove his worth after the drug incidence


Hi community, 7 trades left and 40k in the bank. Was thinking of possible going Gaz to Selwood and Smith to Picken which would leave me with only $200 in the bank which is risky. Otherwise could go down to Dangerfield and Smith to Kelly. Or something more left field would be going down to Bennel, Sidebottom, Mcrae or Gaff and going Hamling to Kelly for some bench coverage in the back and making Smith my d7. But with plenty of trades may be worth going the Dangerfield route


id bring in selwood and picken but id also want danger… Up to you which one you think will get you more points


1st time time long time. club Jock member, 2 plus years Ranked 420 ish. Love your work Lek


Good on you for sticking it out with the vids, Lekdog! Great work!


should I trade beams/Fyfe or hold ?

and who should I trade out of:

beams, Maric, b smith, Neale, k Jack, buddy?


who is the best option out of:

m murphy, Bennell, Thompson, treloar ?

Ashley J

all good options


Bennell. He has a point to prove after the drug scandal

Not Letting Go

“Jock?” [Cups hands around mouth and screams louder] “JOCK!!!??????”


3 trades left

Ablett needs to be traded

Will leave me 2

Shiuld i go priddis?

Or someone cheaper and upgrade smith? Which will leave 1 trade


At this stage I think you are stuck with Smith. He isn’t injured so keep


totally agree, you are very low on trade hence keep smith, anyway he scored 83 on weekend hopefully turning things around

General Soreness

Great work Lek!!!! I wont even mention it……


What to do with T Mitchell? We all know he is a gun but the one person who matters (Horse) obviously disagrees. If you have a spare trade up your sleeve, should we trade him out for a Bartel or Bennell for finals as he could somehow still be a sub-vest risk?


gaz to j lewis, thoughts?


No trade gaz to ultra premo like dangerfield or priddis


only if it frees up cash to do something else amazing to your team.


Who to bring in for smith anyone under 500k ????




How about Gaz to Deledio?

Other options I'm considering are Priddis & Hannebery…


Only have Delidio in your forward line, get the gun midfielders in your midfield. if you want delidio, squeeze him into your forwards.

Priddis is in about 11% of teams, that surprises me.


Thanks Derek, can't argue with that in general. Only 2 trades left so flexibility does come into it for me, and he's Lids is showing a bigger upside than Priddis this season (with the exception of the 196 Priddis busted out!). I'm sure that 11% will rapidly rise this week for sure!


Thanks for the reply LEKDOG, much appreciated mate! My thoughts exactly… only 2 trades left and team already full premo (minus Saad as D6) so flexibility is key for my team at the moment.

A couple of interesting stats for Lids – of 12 games played (including 2 injury affected – Weeks 1 & 6), has 6 scores of 120+, of which 4 were 130+ and 2 over 140. If you remove the 2 injury affected games – Week 1 (subbed – 81 TOG) & Week 6 (return – 78 TOG) – his average becomes 120.20.

Call them selective stats, but I personally think they paint a pretty solid picture for serious consideration among those being talked about as Gaz replacements!


Hey guys i have 3 trade options this week and i cant decide which one. (Only if beams is not playing btw)
option 1: beams to priddis
Option 2: beams to a 540k or lower midfielder and trade tom mitchell to harley bennel
Option 3: beams to 580k or lower midfielder and trade tom mitchell to jimmy bartel.
I have 7 trades left and thought i have enough to get rid of mitchell becuase i dont really want him any longer.


OPTION 2, really think harley bennel pod


Yeah atm i have luke parker and harley bennel. Any other midfielders you would recommend?


Beams to Priddis. Unless TMitch gets vest again, you will know Saturday afternoon.


i reckon option 2


Well that was pointless thought becuase beams is playing thanks anyway guys


You mean Beams might be playing as he was supposed to last week.


Gaz is gone! Fyfe is not playing! Beams looks done! Watch the below video for my professional opinion.


keep oxley and/ or N. brown?. both are really not scoring very well now


Oxley has potential as a loophole, n brown should have been traded a long, long time ago…


I could go to a kelly from geelong, or s hurn from wce. what do you think


To all those who still haven't decided what to do with Ablett. This is my advice, plain and simple. Look at your options, and get who you deem to be the best one, regardless of price. Pendles if you don't already have him, Priddis, Dangerfield, Mundy, Sidebottom, Lewis, Hannebery (be wary of high BE).


Good stuff Lekdog great work mate!
Just wondering what option is better I have 4 trades left, in top 4 in all leagues, and have Ablett to trade and smith on field in defence.
Option 1) im thinking the obvious and go straight to danger – 3 trades remaining and 125k
Option 2) Ablett to one of: Bennel, Bartel(with DPP), Armitage, Treloar, Sidebottom or Murphy – leaving 230k and 3 trades, to next week or the week after go lever to hodge and smith to d7 if trades allow.

Am trying to work it out on averages like danger 122 + smith 73 = 195 VS Armitage 110 + hodge 114 = 224
Midfield is Fyfe, Ablett, Pendlebury, Priddis, Kennedy, Lewis, Selwood, Deledio.

Could this work or am I being crazy passing up the opportunity to take danger as a weekly vc score with the trades I have remaining?
thanks community couldnt have done this year without the help from this site!


thanks mate hopefully smith starts to score somewhere close to last week on a regular basis!


Priddis Dangerfield or Hannebery is the question for me as a Gaz Replacement?
I'll have room for two more premo mids leaving Griff as M8.
Current midfield is Gaz, Fyfe, Pendles, Parker, Kennedy, Griff, Lewis, Steele (Saad, Kavangah, Lambert). Full premo fwd ruck and def (well except for Smith in defence.. but he'll probably have to do)
5 trades left.

The Ranger

Hats off to you for keeping up the good work Lek but perhaps hold back a bit on the chocolatey phallic type ramblings from now on eh?!
Sadly my season appears to be heading into Throttleworld (where there are no trades left) but I might just bring in young Mr..Macrae with one of my last gasps. I likes the cut of his jib…


Hi guys,

My mids are currently Danger, Fyfe, Pendles, Beams, Kennedy, Selwood, Lewis, Wines (Rockcliff, Maynard, Amon)

My Forwards are Gray, Dusty, Swan. Bennell, Goddard, Bont (Steele, Daniel)

I was wondering what I should do when the inevitable happens and beams is left out for the season (which may be this week).

I think I would prefer Rockcliff on the field rather than Bont so…

Option 1: Trade Beams to Priddis, Sidebottom or Hanners

Option 2: bring bont into my mids and trade beams to deledio.

Option 2 would mean that rockcliff comes onto the field in the mids, deledio goes into the forward line and bont would become cover for the mids/fwds

Option 1 would mean that rockcliff stays on bench but I would likely obtain a high scorer in the mids such as Hanners

I have 7 trades

would love some thoughts?


bit of food for thought. if you're low on trades and going for overall rank or league wins, ROLL THE DICE. most people serious about playing are probably going to look at bringing in Priddis, Dangerfield, Hannebery, etc. but I say take a punt, go with somebody else, cross your fingers and see how you go! where's the fun in having super similar teams playing against each other come finals time? YOLO, as the kids say


Community i need your help! I have 5 trades and 44k bank. Ablett needs to go. I have Steele on field that i need to upgrade too. I've got two options.
1) Trade Ablett to a super premo (Priddis or Danger) and Cull a Rookie for cash and then upgrade Steele next week to Bartel or Dahl.

2) Trade Ablett for Lewis or Rocky and then go Steele straight to Bartell, leaving me with an extra trade

Any help would be appreciated!


Rocky and Bartel sounds nice.


Hey guys, I’m a little stumped on what to do next. I’ve got 6 trades, and no cash. Take a look at my team and let me know what you guys think.

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

Midfield: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Hannerbery, Priddis, Dangerfield, Heppell, Lewis, Wines (Boston, Lambert, Amon)

Rucks: Goldstein, Martin (Read)

Forwards: Gray, Swan, Goddard, Deledio, Walker, Steele (McKernan, Lonie)

Thanks guys.


Smith and D6 are your problems. Given you've got 6 trades, I'd hold onto Smith for now. I'd look to get rid of McKernan and Lever and bring in H Goddard and Either Martin, Dahl or Bartel.


Sorry, meant F6 is your problem.


Boston to a rookie then trade Lonie to Bartel or Goddard


What to do with Fyfe? Have 5 trades


Put him on the bench for a week. He'll be back next week.




Has anyone had time to work out which team has the easiest run home??


Bulldogs have a good run


According to Champion Data the Pies have the easiest run home. Ranked 18th hardest. Doesn't look like it to me though.


Can you pick your top 5 replacements for Gazza including value! Excluding Pend and Fyfe

Thanks! I'm liking Selwood


Mundy( Low score of 85)
Hanners(BE of like 200)
any POD (Macrae, Gaff, those sorts of players)

Value for money, would go with selwood, Lewis or Sloane


Based on Value:

Based on points score alone:
Zac Dawson (via DPP)


beams & hanley named for the weekend


Beams was named last week as well!

Bangers APLNG

What’s everyone’s thoughts on Harley Bennell as my FWD trade in?


Is mitchell to bartel a good trade ?

Full premium 6 trades left


see if titch is sub or not if he is im trading him to bennell but bartel is great too


If you have TMitch I would keep him.

If I had neither, I’d prob go Bartel


Great to see Beams and Saad back. Ranked 539 overall with only 2 trades. Thankfully now I might be able to hold off burning a trade.

Although my overall score is 36,690 so im 1041 points behind the overall leaders, it's impossible to try make up that many points with 5 games to go.


You never know what could happen. I think most people ahead of you would be thin on trades as well. If someone like Goldy goes down there will be a lot of pain, but you could be one of the few that could dodge a bullet or two.

It’s never over.

I jumped up 300 places last week to be 159th, and I had Gaz.

Truth hurts

Unless you’re top 20 you’ve probably got no chance. Teams will all be the same.


I hear ya mate I jumped 674 places last week with my score of 2512

The problem I found this season is ALL of the top ranked sides have predominantly the same players in there teams, thats why its going to be very hard to make up all those points. The only reason the top ranked 20 to 50 players are so high overall is because they were fortunate enough to have the high scoring rookies on field in the first 5 games or so.

Like many I just couldn't catch a break with McIntosh, Oxley & Vandenberg in the first 5 games, when I had them onfield they scored poorly & when they were on my bench they scored high. This cost me several hundreds of points,


Really? You're ranked 539th and you "just couldn't catch a break"? We're bleeding for you.


Is Beams definitely playing? Is this confirmed? Pls say YES!
They named him last week and…nup


The good thing is Brisbane is the second game of the weekend. Will know by 1pm saturday


Ablett to priddis and smith to a def under $475 or ablett to danger and keep smith for now?


GAJ to Dagerfield for mine. Scores in defence are all over the place, the only two elite premium defenders that really stick out are Shaw & Hodge they are the must haves. Then your talking Picken, Murphy, Houli, Rance, Simpson who are also your other options.

I would hold Smith after his 83 last week.


Prob depends on how many trades ya got… Priddis and Danger both ultra premo, i'd go priddis if it frees up valuable cash for future trades.
Smith is ripe for the upgrade, but if ya low on trades like i am, anyone who's playin is stayin!


Mids: Pendlebury, Priddis, Dangerfield, Beams, Blicavs, Montagna, Fyfe, Ablett (selling), – Heeney, Maynard, Robinson.

Through my own convoluted method of ranking players I don't have in my midfield, I have come up with the following top 5: Zorko, Macrae, Hannebury, Mundy, Kennedy.

The top 5 players who "may' be good value for money: Adams, Thompson, Lewis, Bennell, Selwood.

I am leaning towards one of the good value for money players, as after trading Ablett out, I will only have 4 trades left and currently only have $47,000 in the bank. What do you guys think?


If you looking at just the good value players, I would pick Selwood, just ahead of Lewis.


I'm bringing in Macrae as a POD, but Selwood is probably the best option


Love ya work LEKDOG! You're an inspiration to many…

With GAJ gone, fyfe gone fishin, a massive ? on Beams and bugger all trades I need Steele or Lambert to start this week. Who's the best option ya reckon? Steele average is higher but Lambert just scored 103…


Loophole them


I cant Derek, I can only get them together in the forward line and my other emergency is playing. Does that make sense?
Who do you think will score better – Steele vs Freo or Lambert vs Haw?


I think Lambert. He seems to be building over the last few games. Steele has found his average.




Who we putting as vice captain folks?


Selwood for me


Pendlebury VC. Godly C


thinking about Hodge VC, Goldy C


pendals into priddas


My thoughts for trading out GAJ are Danger, Priddis, Selwood or Bennell. However, only have 87k in the bank and my bigger issue is who to trade Mc Govern for as I missed out downgrading him to Knight and Laverde (both on the bubble) last week. Any thoughts/advice greatly appreciated.


Want to trade McKernan for bench cover. Unsure who to choose though. Options are Brent Harvey or Steven Motlop or anyone else that is under $450k

Locked and Loaded

Don't see a problem with Gaz to Sloane or Selwood if it frees up cash to upgrade elsewhere. Which one though??


I'd say Selwood has the ability to go bigger, but not as frequently. Sloane is usually one of my first picked at the start of the year cause when he's on(which is often) you can bank the 100+ points week in, week out.


Selwood for me.

He must be coming back into form.

Any extra cash will be much needed when purchasing that ultimate player in the next few weeks.


Any Saad.owners thinking of keeping him for cover? It is 400 k sitting there and I need two more premiums in the midfield. Looking at his scores and average and the defenders I dont have who would I bring in as a D7? Are people with full premo teams thinking of another premo for D7 or just someone solid. Kelly springs to mind but with a be of 15 he would need to come in this week and he’s not a D/M swinger. Normally I would try to get a D/M and D/F om my mid bench to swing forward or back.
My first trade will probably be GAJ to Selwood and then either Saad for H Goddard or Hamling for H Goddard. Anyone got any thoughts on strategy from here ? 7 trades will finish top 4 29 k going for league.

D Shaw Hodge Simpson Newness Gibson Houli Saad Hamling
