SCOTT LYCETT. The name on everyone’s lips. Kev wrote him up today and there is no doubt your R2 selection will make you and break you in season 2018.

Lekdog and Patch discuss Lycett and other West Coast selections alongside players from Richmond, St Kilda, Sydney and the Doggies.

They also have a gander at some of the JLT significant games from the week before.

They also announce the winner of the AFL team suit for our favourite POD that went up on Facebook!

How are your teams shaping up, community? What do you want to see next week now team reviews are through? Are you throwing yourself to the Dogs on Lycett?

As always, keep your eyes peeled on the site for more content going up every day – and let us know what you want to see!

Hey boys – loving the work as always! It is getting better every week :)))

Apologies again for being late this week – Lek and I were both beset by a whole bunch of time constraints, technical difficulties and Other Life Things™.

Finnius

Who would we rather – Cripps and 105k or Crouch and 33k?

Patch
Guest
Patch

Depends on what the 105k becomes. If it's just loose change, I'd wager Crouch will score more and thus (Higgo taught me that word) should be picked.

If the 100k turns a 350k defender into Heath Shaw, take Cripps.

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

Cripps has averaged over 100 once in his 4 years..all I remember about him having picked him probably 3 of those years is…disappointment.

Tucker
Guest
Tucker

He started 2015 as a 200k rookie and averaged 96, amazing return
The next year he was a solid premium mid at 107 with an insane 2nd half to the year
Last year was the only disappointment with his injuries limiting him to 15 games and a 25 in his last game pulling his average down.
You're selling him well short, he's a LOCK

Captain Risky
Guest
Captain Risky

Cripps biggest selling point is the round 12 bye. Crouch, Danger, Dusty, Fyfe all round 14.

dave G
Guest
dave G

Does that make Cripps a rd13 trade target then?

Kyle
Guest
Kyle

Does anyone else have doubts over dusty backing up his 119 average? Ik you are backing him lek but i am along the same thinking as patch. So many marking him in as a guaranteed top 8 mid but i am not sold. His one and only year averaging 110+ and i cant imagine richmond having another dream run like last year. Will his scores drop off this year? I think they may. So for me i will be leaving him out of the starting side and wait for byes to reasess

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

He always seems to drop off at some point in the season Kyle, I picked him up for sub 500k last year…I'm not starting with him, but definitely want to finish with him.

Derek

Everyone is always cheaper at some stage.

Captain Risky

Captain Risky

8 scores over 130 last year. Started with 159 against Carlton…
Like most he will be cheaper at some stage, but will you have the $, or will you have more pressing trade issues?

DustyCut
Guest
DustyCut

Might sound a bit one-eyed as a Richmond supporter, but I reckon he will. It's a different game in the pre-season, but once the real thing starts, watch the Tiger's midfielders look for him on the outside, or see Dusty go in 3 on 1 and sneak a handpass to a teammate (or go full Nelson Muntz, Wildcats style). He also played some amazing footy in the highest of pressure situations. He just plays footy, and like Danger, he looks a class above everyone out there. Watch him match or go better than 2017 this year.

DunNuthin

Yes Kyle for a number of statistical reasons and no 'I reckon' reasons.

Armitage in the mids, Lycett and Forget… It's becoming Madman Moe's Pressure Cooker! (I like it!)

Russty_

Armo in the mids isn't so madman, if he stays ambulatory, Lycett probably is though…he's just as injury prone as Nicnat and Vardy.

Sicily is a keeper whereas Armitage is a stepping stone. It all depends on the structure of your team, however I would be leaning towards Sicily.

I’ve had JOM all preseason. After JLT2 I’m starting to think Armitage. Based on his numbers a couple of years ago. He has done it before, we are yet to see what JOM can do

So I know that Lek has a full scale man crush on Cripps, as do I for the record even as a saints man. But will he get the 110ave needed to make him a top 10mid? I can see him getting low 100’s just don’t know about 110.

Nice Podcast lads. Plenty of relevance. To Lycett or not? I have 2 teams, one with and one without. It’s a big call & I can hear the fear in Lek & Patch today. Shaw or Sicily into D4 if I take the punt, or roll back to Ryder & Naughton. Here is the team with Lycett…. D: Yeo, Laird, Hibberd, Shaw, Doedee, Finlayson (Murphy, Mihocek); M: Danger, Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs, Brodie, T.Kelly (Garlett, Holman, Barry); R: Gawn, Lycett (Cameron); F: Heeney, Billing’s, Smith, Christensen, Rioli (WC), Fritsch, (Ryan, Ahern).

I guess we'll have to have a punt on Darcy Cameron on the bench. For old times sake just like last year..

Keenbutclueless

Keenbutclueless

Darcy Cameron just became very relevant as an R3 with Naismith going down. Having some cover at R3 possibly strengthens the case for Lycett, as your hand is not forced into an immediate double trade if he goes down.

INPieman

Let's see if he's named round 1. In the last JLT game Towers was backing up

Finnius
Guest
Finnius

Picking your top 6 forwards all at once is a terrible idea – I know we can't trust the rookies but we can't really trust the premos. There will be a breakout and someone who drops that you will want to pick up later. Go Papley and petracca to rookies and get gawn and Kreuzer in the ruck.

Laird Lad Donuts

Laird Lad Donuts

600K in the bank will hopefully allow me to upgrade my defence quicker than most and I wanted to try fit as many mid and defence rookies as i can as i see most value in those lines

Laird Lad Donuts
Guest
Laird Lad Donuts

also finnius whilst that is probably the safest idea and thankyou, I dont think its such a terrible idea, Simpson and Lycett are in there to make some quick cash while lobb, nic nat and vardy are out, and i have been watching petracca and papley since the end of last year and like what i see, more cash in the bank too

Shaw

I would go Witherden. Forget his turd game in the JLT, you know he can play.

Lazza
Guest

Neither. Shaw too slow, Witherden awkward price.. if that’s your price range better options in Lloyd, Tuohy and Savage. I have none of these though … would rather have Sicily. If you have him already then Lloyd…

Paul V
Guest
Paul V

Would love you thoughts here.

Sicily/Lycett/Coniglio

Sicily/Jack Graham/Stef Martin

Coffield/Coniglio/Stef Martin (this option means Laird/Hibberd/Rampe only premiums in DEF.)

Finnius

Finnius

Option 3. Would be reviewing the rampe selection

Frizzy fruit

Frizzy fruit

With Naismith out, the stocks of Cameron round 14 bye will soar, esp if you have Kreuzer round 12 bye and Gawn round 13 bye

StevoRivo

Ryder & Naughton (D4) or
Lycett & Shaw (D4)

gator59
Guest
gator59

Who do you think will average more Ryder or Shaw and there's your answer

StevoRivo
Guest
StevoRivo

Thanks Gator, that’s a line ball call. They should run close 100 avg. The question ties my broader question on Lycett to boost D4, hope Lycett makes cash and upgrade to Ryder later (after his bye). See my earlier post further up this chain.

gator59
Guest
gator59

My take on your side is 3 premos down back .. 5 premos in mids strengthen the fwds and ditch lycett and get kruz in .. hope this helps you

StevoRivo
Guest
StevoRivo

Ok will have a play around. Kruz & Gawn going to drain cash. Might be tough call.

gator59
Guest
gator59

only way to go mate … you may think your losing a premo but in reality you will be gaining imho… who ever u pick will average around the same .. no need for upgrading and having nightmares over your ruck department

StevoRivo
Guest
StevoRivo

My fallback is Ryder not Kruz. That can work too.

Lazza
Guest
Lazza

Is Patch handing out tablets!!! What are you guys on to be even thinking about Shaw.
Ryder will outscore Shaw by more than 20 points. Ryder is Top 20 overall. Shaw wasn’t anywhere near the top 100 last year. Closer to 150 than 100.

I'm not going for any of them. I think there are too many good value players in the midfield compared to the other lines. Hopefully Kelly and Fyfe will serve as good enough captains until I can get Danger at about round 6.

chasing some advice please
MID option 1 : 5 uber premiums & 3 rookies like dow, brayshaw and banfield

MID Option 2: 5 premiums, coniglio & brayshaw + banfield

really want option 1 to work for the $$ to spend elsewhere but love the coniglio pick for points.

Finnius
Guest
Finnius

I would go option one as I back the mid rookies more than any others

Carl
Guest
Carl

If you’re picking Coniglio you’re banking he’ll go 110ave and therefore be a top10 mid. Otherwise it’s pointless because you’ll have to trade him out. So option 1, as finnius said there are plenty of good mid rookies this year

Steve
Guest
Steve

Probably the safest rendition of my team so far. Most likely the smartest way to start my team, but I keep getting awful mid-priced thoughts in my head.

Any thoughts so far?

B: Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Coffield, Doedee, Finlayson (Murray, Mirra)
M: Danger, Mitchell, Crouch, Merrett, Fyfe, Coniglio, Dow, Banfield (Kelly, Garlett, Holman)
F: Heeney, Billings, McLean, Stephenson, Ahern, Fritsch (Ballendan, Ryan)

58k left

Tibor
Guest
Tibor

The rewards are there Those of us who grabbed Oliver at a bit over 300 last year are still laughing. Why grab a premium unless you are absolutely sure or a rookie just because he gets picked for round 1 every time. Have a crack at picking the break out player….

neil Demons Delight
Guest
neil Demons Delight

TIBOR quite right I had OLIVER and I will give another MELKSHAM

Tibor
Guest
Tibor

Thoughts on Petracca Neil, I was pretty bullish on him but he is not super cheap. Hogan is cheap if he gets a decent run he could be the break out…options at West Coast too for blokes getting better roles in the absence of Mitchell and Priddis, Redden maybe.

I like a bit of mid price madness without it we all end up with teams that are too similar and boring….

Skinny McThin
Guest
Skinny McThin

Excuse me for repeating myself but I like the look of my own voice.
What is the advice that you are giving on Lycett?
Are you suggesting that an average of 80 for 12-weeks is good enough for our R2? Or are you suggesting that we should pay 277k for our R3 so that we can make 150K over 12-weeks?
Are you guys on crack?

Carl
Guest
Carl

People are suggesting Lycett for R2 and Cameron for R3. The idea that Lycett has ave 80 before and Is a chance to improve that as a sole ruckman

Skinny McThin
Guest
Skinny McThin

He's averaged a lot injuries before to Carl, they have another bloke at the eagles who can ruck Nack Knitanewy or something. He's only a little bit broken atmo should be fixed soon surely not more than 8-weeks from now. The of course they also have Mcinnes and that Mcgovern bloke so, if you think Lycett will ever be sole ruck you're all on crack.

ZerrettForPM
Guest
ZerrettForPM

We don't think Lycett will be a sole ruck all season. Only for 5-9 weeks hopefully. We want him to go up a bit in cash, whilst also ideally scoring around that 80-90 mark. As soon as Ryder's bye is over bam.

Any thoughts welcome Def, Laird. Hibberd. Simpson. Sicily. Naughton. Doedee………..Finlayson. Murphy Mids. Danger. Dusty. Titch. Fyfe. Whitfield. JOM. Dow. Barry………..Banfield. Ballard. Holman Ruck. Gawn. Lycett…………..Cameron Fwd. Heeny. Dev Smith. Petracca. Hogan. Bolton. Keefe……….Garlett. Ryan Very little left over, Rookiecan change. Accept the risky mid price fwd set up but am very keen on both the Hogan and Petracca mix. Not sure on Keefe but like the swing with Sicily

Carl
Guest
Carl

Love the Whitfield pick – fairly big POD there.
If you’re stuck on Hogan then sure but I disagree personally. He’s a key fwd that’s where he’ll play a lot of the year.

I would downgrade JOM to T.Kelly and use the cash to upgrade one of your mid pricer’s to a premo, I would upgrade Hogan.

I’d also swing Sicily fwd, ditch Keeffe (he’s only good for a 50ave) and bring in Coffield/Mihocheck/Mirra in defense

Larry
Guest
Larry

Thanks for the reply, hadn't looked seriously at the names you've thrown up but will.

Stuck on Hogan is probably the best description just feel price is huge unders if this bloke gets a half decent run. A lot of my team is just the big four plus the same rookies most others have so a bit of a gamble here and there is almost a must

David E

Def – Laird, P.Hanley, Hibberd (Melb), O'Shea, Keefe , Doedee (Murray, Cummins)

Big G

Some discussions on forward options please. Is Buddy a better option than Heeney? Are Devon Smith or Toby McLean really solid F3 options? Thoughts on Toby Greene being a top 5 forward by average by season's end?

Post_MaSloane
Guest
Post_MaSloane

I would say Buddy would score more than Heeney, but it will be a rollercoaster of ups and downs. I think you could do a lot worse than Smith and McLean, I'd say they'd be good for a 90 average. Toby Greene may be top 5 forwards, but surely you wouldn't ruin the integrity of your team by selecting such a flog

Lenny
Guest
Lenny

Yep he is a super flog and that can't be ignored. Having said that we picked Goddard for years. Toby toss bag might be just too good to ignore.

Can you have both Toby and Sicily in the same team? Where does it end.? The short answer is Riewoldt . Bottom line maybe just one flog and leave it there….

Bells
Guest
Bells

Buddy will be the number 1 fwd this year. Heeney could go either way – Hewett is ready for more midfeld time and looks a bit quicker this preseason (Swans REALLY need a bit of pace). Papley is going to get more mid time as he is a bloody good extractor. It just might be Heeney that has the price dip this year, not Buddy.

PeterL
Guest
PeterL

Thoughts Anyone, i'm fairly settled my main concern is FWD but need to confirm which rookies will play in Rnd1
Def – Laird, Hibberd (Melb), Sicily, Marchbank, Naughton, Doedee (Murray, Mirra)

Mid – Martin, Titch, Fyfe, THE Bont, Cripps, Heeney, Libba, Brayshaw(Freo) (Barry, J Garlett, Holman)

Rucks – Gawn,Sauce (Hayes)

Fwd – Dahlhaus, Lobb, Stringer, Fogarty, Higgins, Ahern (Ryan, Fritsch)

ZerrettForPM
Guest
ZerrettForPM

FWD line may be shaky this season. I recommend perhaps starting Sicily there instead and invest in another defender rookie like Finlayson.

PeterL
Guest
PeterL

Thanks Dude. good point.

Bells
Guest
Bells

So many risks in your team that can derail your season.
Bont, Heeney, Libba, Lobb, Stringer, Marchbank.
I've gone with teams like this before. Never again.
Heeney should be fwd or not at all. If Lobb makes it back for round 1 then I bet he starts fwd, not as the ruck – in which case avoid. WIll be a good pick if he plays as number one ruck though. Until that is proven consider Heeney to fwd, Lobb out and get another rookie into the mids.
Stringer?? Why?

Blaknight

Pretty happy with my team at its current.

Thoughts / Opinions

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Shaw, Doedee, Murray (Keefe, Mirra)
MID: Danger, Titch, Oliver, Crouch, Fyfe, Brayshaw (Freo), Dow, Banfield (Garlett, Kelly, Holman)
RUCK: Martin, Gawn (Olango)
FWD: Heeney, Walters, McLean, Christensen, Ahern, Rioli (Dear, Ryan)

Still not sold on McLean. Was Dalhaus about 5mins ago. Stuggling with that 3rd FWD choice.

D_I_L_D_O_R

I've sided with you and gone Mclean, think he will get alot of mid time as the others rotate forward, look at his natural progression from his first 3 years, only needs another 10% and he's a top 10 fwd. Also have D.Smith based on his role. Petracca a bit overated IMO

Hi community, I’ve seen a lot of you guys select some cheap rookies for your bench and in an ideal world, the cheaper the better if they play. What gives u the confidence they will play though? I’ve seen Doedoe, Fritsch etc. I’m more inclined to pay a bit more and get Alir Alir for example because I’m confident he will play most games and is an expensive rookie price. Would love to get everyone’s thoughts

Cheap rookies will make cash faster. Helps get to full premium faster

A $123k rookie who scores 60, will go up in price a lot more than a $190k rookie who scores 60. A lot more.

Alir Alir injured isn't he?

Bells

Certainly is and far from a certain best 22 player at this stage despite being talked up in the preseason. Could end up playing ruck this year, in which case he'll be a REALLY interesting player.
Cameron starting ruck tomorrow as he's the only one not injured.

I think it is the year of the high priced rookie Jimmy. Lots of options in the 150-200 bracket. Might be worth checking out Naughton and Coffield before Alir if you haven’t already.

Jimmy
Guest

Yeah already have them both and needed another one. Also going with Byrne from the blues

Definitely a year to think outside the box. I don’t mind Byrne. Was in pretty good form before he did his knee and seemed to be able to find the ball. Food for thought.

Liking the podcasts fellas! Can we discuss Degoey? If he keeps his nose clean, surely a top 6 contender. Played very well at the end of last season and will get more time in the mids. Lock in my team of starts round 1

Walters, Pertracca, Caddy, D.Smith, Ahern, Ryan,
Garlett, Poholke

That might be a serious case of MM.

I don’t mind the occasional midpricer, but I much prefer the Fallen Premium type midpricer than the Gut-feeling one.

Was Walters ever “premium”?

Hi Corey, just say no to Caddy mate..he's too up and down..mostly down.
I'd punt Ahern too, Fritsch might be a better option.

The more I change my team, the more Guns n rookie it is becoming. Only have 2 midpricers in team, Shaw D3 and Devon F4. Although Some would argue they are both premiums! JOM and Armitage, Barlow, Coniglio and Lycett are other Midpricers who have been in and out of my team. I’ve not had a good history with Midpricers unless they have been true Fallen Premium. Shaw fits that category well. Armitage and Coniglio are close to fallen premiums and should be considered at their prices. Devon I’m not sure about, he is a popular pick but yet to… Read more »

Big call with Ryder. Nice forward line – how sold on Devon Smith are you? Personally I love going big (6 premos) in the midfield because I know that is where the points come from but I like how you have 5 great premo mids.

Not a big fan of Devon. Liked a few games he played at GWS last year but then would go missing.

Derek, mate ,you weren't going to start with TMitch ,what changed your mind ? also no Barlow – you were big on him ?
Personally I liked your other team that you posted elsewhere where you had a definite 13 keepers , not sure about Lloyd,Shaw ect will be top 6.
Please don't take offence as I value you your commentary on everything Supercoach
PS – l'll post my team shortly and I will welcome you reply , Cheers and Good Luck

Derek
Guest

I had JOM from the start, thinking he would be taking points from TMitch. Didn’t see enough out of JOM to keep him in my team or to suggest he will affect TMitch.

Lloyd is probably my least favourite choice. He is there in his value, probably should be $500k, but I’m not a fan. Hibberd is too expensive, Shaw might not be there after tomorrow’s game or he could be locked in

Thanks for the feedback, appreciate it.

Oliver did look good tonight with Gawn in ruck

Agree on Oliver looking good but he gave away 4 free kicks and had 7 clangers with 19 bloody handballs ,but still had 98 SC Points, not sure if this is a coincidence with Max in the Ruck, please someone show some stats with Max n Oliver playing together ,Cheers

Hey Derek, I like your squad, Petracca might be one to consider over Smith or even Heeney, Trac could have a big year, and he's not returning from anything bad, like injuries or bad form, looks like he's getting into his stride. Guns n Rookies or Midpriced madness can both end up flopping, the rookies have to play if you have a bunch of em..and score decently. I like a good balance somewhere in between GNR and Midpriced madness lol Mirra being 'rested' this week, not sure what that means. Will Barry, Banfield, Spargo, Venables and Garlett start round 1?…not… Read more »

Find a way to get Greene and Danger if you are keen on Greene, expect a few suspensions during the season though.

I believe you will see a different Tobias Greene this year, new 6 year contract and they have demanded leadership from him, he's in my team and I predict he will be the highest priced FWD this year ,

Oliver + Hogan or Fyfe + Petracca ???

Fyfe and Petracca

12 keepers IMO, obviously everything is subject to change

If plays Round 1 I’d pick him ahead of Lycett who has Vardy and NicNat to compete with

D_I_L_D_O_R

Even with Lobb due back in the first few rounds?

Derek
Guest
Derek

Simpson looks like a ruck. Big strong and slow.

Lobb looks like he will struggle with the weekly battle in the ruck.

Could be Simpson gets first crack, with a midfield like GWS even i’d Manage a few hits to advantage, I can see him doing ok and holding the first ruck spot.

Lycett will be second behind NicNat

Bells
Guest

Nice podcast fellas.
Has NicNat had another setback? I thought he's due back in early rounds and Lycett surely goes out. Plan totally destroyed.

I do agree with that. Some people just seem to give up once it becomes harder. But then some people give up for different reasons. All we can hope for is that people dont give up. Yes it becomes more challenging as the season goes on. But hey, Thats what its all sbout.

Might be time to move away from using the Jock Reynolds name guys…or maybe some new hosts? It's just not working. The page is still good for discussion but the podcast is horrendous. Just my opinion.
