PODCAST: LEKDOG’S MLG PLAYS

Published by Patch on

Billings. Hibberd. Kreuzer. Those other blokes who are also bad.

The rookies’ poor week. The premiums’ poor weeks.Β The disappointment of Patrick Dangerfield.

We have an in-depth discussion of the rucks and also have a look at some sneaky forward options.

These things and more are discussed on this week of the podcast, as Lekdog and Patch stumble through round five of the Supercoach season before Patch gets a bit wild and crazy.

NOTE: We forgot to mention, but next round goes for about a week due to Anzac Day. Content will be a bit jumbled but it will all be there, somewhere. Hold onto your hats for that bad boy.

What are you moves this week?

Hey Guys.

So I'm thinking I will hold trades this week, but any advice on trades I should do in coming weeks or now is welcome πŸ™‚

Laird, Hibberd, McGovern, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray ( Naughton, Murphy)

Dangerfield, Mitchell, MacRae, Fyfe, Merrett, Kelly, Holman, Banfield ( Brayshaw, Barry, Garlett)

Gawn, Nank (Cameron)

Heeney, McLean, Billings, Sicily, Stephenson, Fritsch ( Henry, Higgins)

26 trades, 250k in the bank

Thanks Guys!

Patch

Gday Crowboy! Moving Hibberd on is probably the best as we discussed – maybe to a Hurley or Simpson?

Also love seeing Macrae in the guts!

Crowboy94

Hey Patch,

Thinking I may hold him and Billings, have to back them in, plus don't want to sideways anymore….

But I am definitely considering trading both of them.

Probably going to just downgrade Brayshaw to Coffield.

Sc_Wow

Not getting enough cash out of bray to Coffield for me

neil demons delight

Agree Brayshaw is a very slow burner but mirra looks the better downgrade Put Finlaysen in mids cheers N D D

hedski

Nice!! Was about to hit the sack for another night of broken sleep from the young fella screaming, now I can sink a few more tins in the shed and knock myself right out…ah my sc team is shit.

Lekdog

Beautiful

Eric_the_Red

I'm right there with ya mate.

Northerner

Feeling the same pain Hedski. Dropped from 1200 to 5000 in a week. Ugly.

The Ranger

Haha ha…valium mate, get some valium.
For you, not the young fella, obviously.

neil demons delight

Does the young fella know the song yet Amazing how we all think alike Jock like his shed/bungalow too . Its early doors yet hedski the sc gods have nearly finished crapping cheers NDD

DacZawson

Disappointing start to the year.
While I'm only really concerned with my main league, I do keep a close eye on my rankings; and what I'm seeing at the moment is pretty poor – albeit purely due to just one horrific week.
Holding Billings and Hibberd at the moment. Billings is likely to stay there all season and giving Hibberd more time, although a turd this week could see him turn into Yeo.

Just a general note to all community members after reading through the last few article comment sections, unless you have an exceptional circumstance with your team where it seems logical to make the move on a rookie, bringing in a rookie after just 1 game is almost always the wrong option. So save your comments on Mirra or any other rookies that have a good first game until they have played 2 games.

That is all.

Lekdog

Agree, bringing a one gamer in will burn you

Corey

We all know what happened with Higgins

Scouser

Think it's ok if it's a bottom priced rookie and you're convinced of his job security and his level and helps you with a corrective but yeah not ideal off 1 weeks worth of stats

Mike

Thoughts on Hibbered to Coffield.. Goldstein to Grundy. 600k in bank. Next week up to Smpson. Week after up to Danger

Patch

You're a man with a plan, Mike. Grundy looking essential at this stage

David C

Wouldn't be in a hurry to jump on Simpson, his scores have been going down since his 150 in week 1.

Post_MaSloane

This seems a lot like going backwards rather than forwards

Scouser

How is goldy to Grundy going backwards? Agree with the Simpson comment though, backline looks bereft of true premise atm

Josh Kelly

Everyone’s feedback would be greatly appreciated, I have 3.3k in the bank and 28 trades left, I’m thinking of trading Brayshaw to Coffield and Hibberd to Yeo, what does everyone think? Here’s my team in case anyone has any better suggestions!

Laird, savage, Hibberd, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray (Naughton, Murphy)

Dangerfield, Mitchell, Martin, Fyfe, Parker, Coniglio, Kelly, Banfield (Brayshaw, Dow, Holman)

Gawn, Naitanui (Olango)

Heeney, Devon Smith, Curnow, Taranto, Stephenson, Garlett (Fritsch, Fogarty)

Also another big question since my only non playing players play Friday night (Murphy) and Saturday afternoon (Olango) before the the 4 gun midfielders play, who do I make my VC, Coniglio, Parker or Laird?

Patch

Like those trades Josh!

Can't go past Cogs with the VC, although Laird an excellent pick as well

Derek

I think Yeo’s BE is still over 200?

Patch

Well done me for saying "there's no-one really worth trading out for Coffield" while forgetting Brayshaw is a thing.

Also community, how many trades you got left after this round? I'm curious as to where peeps are at

Finnius

25 patch – after 2 injuries, 2 premo corrections and getting rid of clarke.

hedski

Sad to say I've used 5 trades.
1 corrective.
2 on Ryan, got him in after round 2, punted him to Henry last week.
1 Crouch to Cogs after round 2.
1 Brayshaw to Titch last week.
Really don't want to use any more soon, Kreuzer to Grundy could tempt me if he's not named this week but it would mean going early on Mirra/Guefli and I'm not keen on that.
Have English to cover Kreuz anyway, I'll hold Billings. (Have held Greene, Sicily and Kelly)
Good to hear you didn't sound like you were talking underwater this week Patch, pods improving every week, thanks lads.

TommyC99

Same situation regarding Kruez. Would need to 2 trades to bring in Grundy. Reckon Grundy will monster Bellchambers this week, but I’m already down to 26 trades so don’t like the idea of being on 24 trades without doing an upgrade

Lazza

Went pure Premos and Rookies … so have no mid-price players …Pre this round I have 29 trades and $235K in the bank, but looking at trading Hibberd and Zorko … only rookie in my squad who is nearing BE is Brayshaw … looking at Yeo, Hurley, Savage, Martin, Macrae … trying to resist the sideways trade of Zorko…. but can see myself with 27 trades after this round.

JEL

25 here – have 7 rookies to upgrade + any other 50/50's who may or may not work out (Petracca / Sicily / Nank / Smith )

BundyBear

32. I kept 4 from last year

Ahmad rubas

29 left but I have no dusty and no titch so maybe should stop being conservative and be more aggresive

Derek

Remember Menapoo. He was the slowest burn every, and then out of nowhere he went 130+

Only need that one good score.

He has the ability. Give him every chance.

Derek

Used 3 trades. All injury related.

Venables to a rookie this week depending on his injury and how long out.

Defying_Madness

Not many options if you don't use DPP unless you go early on the essendon rookie.

Derek

Might just hold

Multi_

26 before any trades this week which I’m hoping to make none.
Injuries to Ablett, ZGL, Ryan and Crouch are the 4 trades in hindsight I should of kept Langdon.
Venables down this week and also have Murphy

This week long SuperCoach round is going to drive me mad, anyone else seem to check your team during the round when there hasn’t been a game played like a crazy person. Or is that just me

The Ranger

26 left – two correctives, two LTI's so far.
Aiming to hold this week.

BockChoy

27 left… used one for Crouch -> Dusty plus 2 rookie downgrades (Brayshaw -> Crowden; Murphy -> Richards).

My best POD so far has been not having Danger!

Derek

Only 16% had him round 1

BrownlowBoy

29

Neverweaken

25 and no trades this week.

Stupid Coach

27 trades left. Made two trades last week (down grades) Not sure what my strategy will be this week.

DavidSA

Have 26 trades left after my double upgrade Fisher and Bonner > Gray and Sicily
Waiting on rooks to fatten

Might be regretting not starting O'meara
But Merret and Danger are high on my list to fill my last 2 mid spots when they bottom out.
After that it's just getting D5,6 and F5,6 finished

JibJib

27
1 corrective: Lambert to Christensen
2 injuries: Crouch to Tichell and Ryan to Henry

Not trading this week unless something dramatic occurs when the teams are announced.

b_sh3p

I have all my trades

Russty_

Have 26 left Patch, did two this week and then came to my senses and reversed.

jason

anyone have an update on harley bennell? i heard hes close to a WAFL return

Jordan

What to do with Bradshaw(Freo)?
1. Trade to coffield this week
2. Wait for next week to bring either mirra or cunico
3. trade to 0’meara
4. Hold him

Russty_

No offence but the y is nowhere near the d on the qwerty keyboard,
It's Brayshaw. πŸ™‚

Northerner

I’ve had the same issue. It’s an autocorrect thing

Slurper

Slurper did you consult your new friends the two pirates of peasantry for an opinion or is this your own forthcoming commentary?

Disappointed in you Rusty and Adminstrators boot the two clowns who are ruining this site of late.

Not regular contributors like Rusty even know he’s gone a little rough at the knees – tighten up son!

Judas

haha this is gold

Marty

Sex and the Supercoach City?

Russty_

Hey Jordan, my option would be, see how Mirra and Guelfi go this week, and go Brayshaw to one of them.

Gog

Picked shaw over Simpson at round 2s end Haha what a fail. Also Merrett is tasty. Hopefully McGovern keeps up his form too.

fcabel

Patch. I love you…but it’s a simile, not a metaphor.

Sana

No. He won't hear anything else from anyone.

Patch

Touché. Technically correct is always the best form of correct

StevoRivo

28 trades & $195k. Reluctant to trade at all. Only possible options appear to be…

1. Brayshaw to Coffield to open up the Finlayson swing;
2. Brayshaw & Holman to Coffiled & Taranto;
3. Brayshaw & Hibberd to Coffield & Hurley;
4. Hold.

David C

Hold I think.

StevoRivo

Thanks David. Yes hold is my preference. Hibberd will may only just make top 10 defenders. Not sure on Coffield and think Brayshaw can get his BE. Hoping anyway!

Scouser

Don't see any reason to keep Brayshaw at this stage, not scoring points and not making money, going to Coffield (or holding one more week and looking at Mirra) would be stirring my interest if I had him

joe

I like option 2 maybe mirra and taranto

Mike

Got rid of hibbered two weeks ago and not looking back definetly not a top ten def

Corey

SameπŸ˜„

b_sh3p

I'm holding… Possibly the dumbest person in SC! Time will tell. Did the same with Lambert and he pulled out at least 1 good score so fingers crossed! Currently have all my trades

Corey

27 trades left, is it worth downgrading Brayshaw tin coffield for a 40K boost

Dukes

I'm holding Brayshaw as long as Lyon keeps playing him

Derek

Like LEK said. He just needs one big game.

Think Menapoo!

Lazza

I don’t think Bradshaw to Coffield is a value trade unless the DPP fixes ability to field a team or future trade moves. However, having $218k on a slow burn also is not a good investment with fast trackers available.. tough call, but with 15 games plus finals to go trading should be on a ‘no option’ or premium upgrade basis.

The Ranger

It's that DPP that's tempting Lazza.
Not many around with the def/mid status this year.and being able to ditch Finlayson in a few weeks time and then swap Coffield into the def and get a fallen mid premo seems like a good plan.
Not sure I'll do it but I can see the temptation.

Scouser

Finlayson could be a keeper at the rate defensive premos are scoring. I'd probably give him another week and look to move him on for Mirra which will bank you a very valuable additional $70k over the Coffield trade

BadgerHoney7

Currently I am looking like :
(25 Trades – 150,800)
DEF: Laird, Shaw, Sicily, Bonner, Doedee, Murray – Coffield, Murphy
MID: Danger, Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, JOM, Kelly, Finlayson – Holman, Banfield, Barry
RUCK: Gawn, Nic Nat – Olango
FWD: Heeney, Billings, Walters, Dev Smith, Christensen, Fritsch – Henry, Garlett

This week went Brayshaw to Coffield – Swung Coffield down back and Finlayson in the midfield. Don't really know what changes I shall make next week so feedback would be appreciated.

JugHead

Not sure why ppl are in a hurry to get rid of holman. Consistent performer up until this week. A bit more mature bodied than some of the younger rooks. Sure his BE has climbed a bit, but I think he will fatten up a bit more yet.

Sc_Wow

Think his position changed on the weekend so will be interesting to see if that stays the same

Scouser

Spot on call wow, played forward at the weekend, if he's back in the guts this week you'd be mad to trade him out, I'm holding even if he's fwd with such a low breakeven.

Mystic Mac

agree JugHead. I'm holding

MadDoggyDog

He is also playing Brisbane – should help his score a bit as well

DavidSA

BE 22 and playing Brisbane πŸ‘Œ Only a lazy 80 on the cards
Have to keep him this week at the least. Crazy how many coaches have moved him on

joe

Holman and l ryan 4 Taranto and mirra yes or no

Macka

Thoughts on Dunkley? Posted scores of 87 vs GWS, 67 vs WCE, 92 vs ESS and 107 vs SYD so far and can see him averaging 80+ for season, so is he a steal at 360k or is the money better spent elsewhere?

Dice_real

Better elsewhere Macka, not a top 10 fwd so you'd be wasting a trade later in the year again.
As for money making, best you'd get is 100K

Sc_Wow

Spot on dice, was a nice pick if you started with him but he’s not making you any money at that price

D_I_L_D_O_R

Started the year with him :D, cash to be made but ill offload at some point to go up to buddy

CJudd3Votes

Would've had 160 if he could kick straight

Scouser

Surely Parfitt a better option/risk at similar price, didn't look to convincing at the weekend, did he have his boots on the wrong feet?

Jacob

get rid or zorko? thoughts

Willymack1234

He’s playing Gold Coast this weekend so I’d hold for another week

D_I_L_D_O_R

Also concerned here, im giving him one more against GC this week, if he cant perform he's gone. πŸ™

theRealPod

He is not the magnificent this season but will still drop a massive score or two. I had him and dumped him early as the signs were there. I suspect Holman will go to him this week.

JugHead

I still have Ryan (WCE) on my fwd bench. I'm not too excited about any fwd rookies to bring in for him. I also have English on my ruck bench. Looking at 2 options.
1. Cull an underforming midfield rookie (I have Dow and Brayshaw) and bring in Coffield. The bit of cash generated would allow me to upgrade Ryan to McLean or Gray..
2. Trade Ryan for a cheap non playing ruck/fwd dpp to set up a swing with English. I can then put English on field if required. Cash generated allows me to upgrade Dow or Brayshaw to a premo mid.

JugHead

Of course, with option 2 it raises the issue of English's JS. If he gets dropped to bring in Roughhead or Boyd…..not good.

Dice_real

Can you do 1 with buddy? Even if its Mirra and not Coff for that extra coin?

JugHead

Hmmm. Had to sharpen the pencil for that one……
Option 3. Dow out. Coffield in……….Ryan out. Buddy in. Leaves 4k in the kitty.

Dice_real

Like it Jug. Who's your other fwd premiums?

JugHead

Fwd line is:
Heeney, Mundy, Petracca, Waterman, Stephenson, Fritsch (Garlett, Ryan)

Dice_real

Nice jugs

Dice_real

Nice team too

pod

Perfect

Dice_real

Those thinking of bringing in Coffield over Mirra, sure Coffield's job security is pretty good right now.

Just think why Hawthorn drafted a 27 year old backman, VFL captain for the last 4 years…..not to play VFL, his spot is up to him!

JugHead

Planning on getting them both. Coffield this week. When Mirra is on the bubble, hoping to bring him in for Naughton.

gator59

I started with mirra because my hawks contacts say he is a sure thing and coming from the source I have is good enough for me

At least I can say I've saved a trade there

NoLanguage

Exactly my thinking! Mirra and Guelfi next week for LDU and Venables $$$

Ryan

Hibberd to Coffield?

JugHead

My gut says no. But it depends what you spend the cash on. If it allows you to upgrade a non playing or non performing 200k rookie to a genuine premo mid, then maybe. I'd be surprised if Hibberd starts scoring any worse. I'd also be surprised if Coffield starts scoring any better. But then, SC is always surprising me.

Pranav Santhosh

was reading a pre season article on here about rookies and could someone explain to me what ROI is?

JugHead

return on investment

Derek

who would you prefer, a $102k rookie who makes you $150k, or a $170k rookie who makes you $200k.

as a percentage the cheaper rookie is a better return (percentage) on your intital investment.

it does depend on what you did with the extra $68k saved. If you just have cash sitting in the bank, you need to factor that into your ROI calculation.

BrianTaylor15

if was to trade one player who should it be
1) Billings
2) Hibberd
3) J Kelly
4) Zorko
5) Lycett

Derek

trade out i assume?

Billings, Hibbo and Zorko are all premiums and need to be held.

The other two were only stepping stones. Have either of them maxed out their price? prob not.

D_I_L_D_O_R

Hard to say that Kelly is a stepping stone at 600k? His injury is scaring me, GWS say nothing

Derek

sorry, i thought it was T Kelly.

I have J Kelly and holding him for now.

INPieman

If your trading out BT I'd suggest all of them

Lazza

Kelly is the only one not playing and is carrying an injury .. So he would be my pick as you can virtually pick any side-trade.
Of the others .. I have Zorko and Hibberd … I am so tempted …

Sana

Billings or Hibberd BT

Mystic Mac

Boy oh Boy Woweeeee

cburgz

liam ryan is my loophole atm who plays fairly early this week so who would you vc out of laird, heeney, greene or coniglio and captain out of grundy, fyfe, dusty or mitchell?
leaning towards greene (vc) and grundy (c). I feel like greene will go big against a struggling stkilda and grundy playing the big anzac day clash with really good form atm. thoughts??

theRealPod

Hey cburgz I would VC Greene and C on Dusty. What a long week of footy!

Scouser

I like the Greene VC option, not so sure about Dusty, surely they'll send Vince to him? Grundy in red hot form but both sides will be up for it AD, Fyfe a good option this week also. I'd be steering clear of Mitch after last week and entering into the SC vortex aka Ben Jacobs!

David C

I'm doing Coniglio into Fyfe but Laird is a good vc option also.

Crowboy94

Do people think Mirra will get more than a couple of games?

INPieman

This is not the week to get him in. Wait till he's named for his third

JugHead

agree

KSinny

agreed x2

theRealPod

He's got JS if he plays like he did against Dees.

Scouser

Definitely, especially with the Hawks injury list growing but you need to wait a week at least and then see him named for his 3rd gane otherwise it defeats the whole purpose of trading.

JugHead

I like the kid, but no.If the motive is cash generation, its just too risky at this point. You hsve missed the first 90k and if he gets dropped or injured (as plenty of young developing ruckmen do) its a serious pain in the arse. You would be trading up from him later anyway, and seeing as his best score is mid 80's, I can't see the cash generation from here justifying the risk and another trade. Get a premo ruck and make your cash on other lines that are easier to cover if something goes wrong.

Derek

Jordon Lewis broken his hand, out for a few weeks.

Does this change Hibbo's role? does he get a few kick-ins now?

Ahmad rubas

Yeah should be, hopefully hibberd tons up this week

theRealPod

Think you nailed it Derek, Hibbo owners rejoice.

INPieman

Damn. Reverse trades again

David C

Just reversed my Hibberd trade.

Keenbutclueless

Might be blind faith and ignoring what’s staring us right in the face, but this is enough for me to hold. I have been advocating aggressive trading for those like me who are off the pace. The safe way for me would either be don’t trade at all, or turn Hibberd into Hurley. I think the aggressive way is to keep Hibberd and take a risk of going early on upgrading a rookie that might have some cash left in him to a slightly under premium. I know I might be choosing a quick death over a long slow death, but my experience over the past few seasons has been to follow the conventional wisdom. Yes, I have improved by season end, but still a long way off it.

Derek

yeah. I'm not saying get him in based on lewis missing a couple of weeks. if you have him, it might be worth holding him this week and see if he can score a few points and make a couple of dollaridoos

Crowboy94

I think Melbourne might wake up and realise they need to use Hibberd more like last year!

Neverweaken

Looks like no trades this week. Mirra and Guelfi next week. Might just to build up the warchest for towards the byes. Would have liked to grab Yeo but the 150 didnt help and the 27 will be gone before I can get him. So will watch n wait until the byes I think

BrownlowBoy

G'day Derek,

With injuries to Rioli and Poppy, does it open the door for Worpel to come into the side? I know he's a in and under midfielder, but Hawks seem to thrive on versatility. Any chance he gets a gig?

Derek

I think Clarko will look at J Impey and say this is why we got you mate.

Impey was going into a fair few centre bounces, so with him camping up forward, maybe there is an opening in the guts for Worpel.

Duryea is another who could go forward to put pressure on and open up a defensive place.

Derek

i think Burton will be back this week, he might go forward.

Defying_Madness

Yeah that wouldn't surprise me

BrownlowBoy

If Duryea goes forward – does that mean Mirra is likely to remain in the team?

Derek

i think Mirra did enough to play this week. Burton can also go forward.

langford can also go into the guts

jez_m

Burton and Cousins come in for mine.

BingoBangoJingoJango

Yeo, Gray or Mclean in this week community. Any advice on who may average the most from now?

Jace

Robbie Gray wont play midfield every week so his scoring will go up and down just be mindful of that.

DacZawson

I wouldn't make that call too early, Gray may very well become a lot more of a midfielder than last year.
BBJJ at this point I'd say McLean, Gray then Yeo for highest average.

Jace

Robbie Gray has already been quoted saying he may play forward this week

CJudd3Votes

In terms of roughly best and worst case week to week:
Gray has a super high ceiling but is a risk in terms of both injury and time spent forward (50s to 140s).
Yeo's ceiling probably not as high but might be a little safer (70s to 130s).
Mclean has the lowest ceiling of the lot and admittingly I don't watch the Doggies much but seems to be a pretty solid choice (80s-120s).

Be worth looking at your bye structure but personally i think despite the fact Gray is a gun, he benefitted from no SPP. Yeo recently dropped that turd which makes my above comment look foolish and hence Mclean is my man

Derek

i've watched the doggies a bit, and honestly i can't tell McLean apart from most of the other doggies. Is it just me or do they all look the same.

CJudd3Votes

He is the Dalhaus clone with number 16 on his back

Holty01

If you want them all, id go Yeo first as his price has fallen a bit with his 27 2 weeks ago.

Holty01

And sorry didnt read the average part. Id say Gray, Mclean, Yeo

JibJib

Gray has history on his side, McLean looks like he's breaking out.

Flip a coin

Marcus

Anyone know any news on Giles-Langdon's return date?

Lazza

He is up for selection this week. Will be 1more week at worst.

Defying_Madness

Adam Simpson says Venables is 'pretty sore' what that means I am not sure

Dice_real

I thought the same, then I reckon he said same time out as Ryan

theRealPod

Sounds bad if he said that.

Brandon

Out for couple months

Steeeve

Planning to hold off this week and then trade bonner to Mirra and Brayshaw to Merrett. Should leave me with $100,000 in the bank.
I can also make the trade this week. Or go Bonner to Coffield and Brayshaw to Merrett this week.

The question is: do I go for maximum value and wait a week, or do I take a step toward being full premo asap?

What is your philosophy?

Crowboy94

Wait a week mate. Mirra will be a good downgrade if he is named for a 3rd week. And Merrett is set to drop even more.

Crowboy94

JOSH KELLY!

Wayne Campbell the GM at GWS just said that he is a week by week injury atm and that they will be conservative bringing him back.

If you haven't traded him DO IT NOW!

Defying_Madness

They also said he could play this week. I could go down to Coniglio or up to Danger but I would prefer to wait on Danger.

Derek

JOM. 82, 63, 104, 145…… is he a sneaky top 15 mid?

Crowboy94

One to keep an eye on I think

Derek

TMitch will get the heavy tag this week. JOM off the chain again.

JugHead

There's a lot of upside for sure. Question is whether you trust his body to hold together.

Theoriginalforce

Will they bother since it backfired last week?

Multi_

I’m seriously considering bringing him in for Brayshaw

r_calve

you and me both, what a speciman he is

Keenbutclueless

You talked him up a bit in preseason. I was keen, but still leaning G&R. Then Danger out made him a good selection for me. Saw him as my way to Danger. It’s working out that way – or he might sit as M8 for a while if he keeps producing. You swayed me, so thanks for that. hope you ended up picking him as well.

Derek

I couldn’t fit him in.

As s hawks fan I’m bias.

Went to game on weekend, he was running better than anyone. Even late in game.

DavidSA

I think 2 goals 9 tackles and kicking way more than handballs this time is what got him that massive score and can't do that most games.
He is a 21-31 disposal player firstly which is ok but a guy that tends to handball more than kick and needs goals 6+ tackles to go over 120 nah

Derek

Mitchell got a lot of attention. This is going to happen more. Even Shiels got a good score on weekend. The hawks don’t have much midfield depth, JOM will get better as year goes.

If going to get him, this is last chance under $400k

BloodyFranklin

What's the go with the 2 Dereks?

r_calve

this may sound stupid but could bringing in jom be a good option, he ha sonly gained about 75k and has a very low breakeven so will gain coin and he looks to have found his groove now that the opposition wont be givving him a thought 9 (GREAT TO WATCH AS WELL SO A BONUS)

thoughts???!!!

theRealPod

I dont see him top 10 but if Titch keeps getting the tag and he stays fit, he will be ok. I didn't start with him so not going to chase him.

scrotum

liking the way lids is moving, 300 odd is very tempting . Thoughts

D_I_L_D_O_R

Playing a different role to last year, coming off his natural half back where he plays his best football. I'd be concerned about his calfs but definitely one to watch for a bargain.

scrotum

yeah mate , could be worth the risk but could be a nice reward if he holds himself together

Whatyasmokin

If u had practically zero risks elsewhere then yes.

Bells

There's no way that rookie tonned up on the podcast last week. A solid 74 for mine.
Let's not get carried away and be condescending fellas. Showed promise, worth giving him a few games this season. Could up the possession count.

Derek

His TOM (time on mike) was fairly low but his efficiency was through the roof. Very impressive first up effort.

r_calve

shoud billings go if ive only used two trade so far

Whatyasmokin

If you are ranked well and cruising nicely. Keeper or rookie though., not another risk.

TOPHAWK1

Nice podcast gents!

I need to cull one rook this week to raise cash. Either Bonner or Andrew Brayshaw for Coffield. Finlayson down back. Is it worth just punting Bonner and grab the $150K and having both Coffield and Finlayson down back at this stage? Can always swing one to the midfield later with a DPP trade. Finlayson is likely to be culled in a month or so as his BE will reach his average before the byes in any case.

Getting Bonner out of my hair for Coffield would give me $280K in the warchest to replace either Hibberd, Billings, or Nankervis for Grundy. Or keep all three for now and stay discliplined……Bloody hard with those two spuds in my side mind you.

Cheers community!

Hold all 3 of those mate. Cull Brayshaw If you want to do one trade. I'm going to hold him for another week and see how Mirra goes so I can get some more cash.

JugHead

I don't have Bonner, but I see it this way. Bonner has one big score from rd 1. That tells me he can play. And he is still scoring just above his BE. I'd try to hold him until Mira comes on the bubble. Brayshaw on the other hand has a BE above his average, is young and will tire, and has a best score of 62. I could be wrong, but I think Bonner has the better scoring potential for the next week or two.
If it were me, I'd go Brayshaw to Coffield. Then next week go Bonner to Mira or swing Coffield back to take Bonner's spot (if you have all the rookie backs, they are scoring ok for you), then get another mid.

J.Kelly to J.O'Meara
D.Venables to Menegola

Thoughts please ?

scrotum

at least you know both their upside is south of 120 , not a lot can boast that , having said that parfit is an exception maybe or a potential star

r_calve

how much bloody cash do you have

Nuggety

Both players have plenty of upside but only one is a keeper imo and should Menegola be injured thats 4 trades to get back to par. Menegola is a yes but I reckon see if you can compromise to get 2 keepers or 1 and a rookie and bank the cash.

Whatyasmokin

I have omeara but is he a top 15 mid? I say top because a decent m8 for 400k. Personally not sure id get him now could be two trades so a fail move.

Derek

JOM is a very good player. Under $390k and about to jump $50k

I’m considering Holman to JOM this week, I have the cash, and holding Kelly.

JOM will be my M8. He will either become Danger in round 9 or slips to M9.

Marty

Very much doubt JOM will be a top 15 mid. He will score well and yes I have him. But he will be a stepping stone to a Danger, Oliver or Crouch.

Greetings Community, I have the chance to make a fwd line upgrade this week and can't really split Heeney, Greene, Mclean or Robbie Gray. Also liking the look of mundy but not to the same extent.

I know Gray is ideal after his bye, but his earlier season form is desired by all coaches so why not get the points now
Mclean has the best bye from all the options but as we all know all the doggies are the exact same player and who knows when roles will change
Heeney's bye isn't great, but with the injuries up forward, Horse Longmire may keep him forward more
Greene just comes with high levels of Late out or suspension and a touch of flog
And mundy is in good touch but i don't know if he will hit the cliff and turd it up

Thoughts community???

scrotum

A fit robbie gray is a no brainer

Derek

Heeney will be #1 forward

Get him in.

To start he will go big this Friday against a no crouch and sore Sloane crows

Whatyasmokin

I like this call he's every chance due to his consistency.

Daniel Z

If Greene is only a touch of flog, I'd hate to see what you consider a full-blown flog.

Of those forwards, I'd say go with what fits your bye structure best as they're all going to be at the top by the end of the season.

Scouser

I like McLean out of the choices at this stage, Gray after his bye if still playing mid role then Heeney who is an absolute must have but his bye sucks esp if you already have Buddy. Wor th keeping an eye on Westhoff also once Paddy is back in was looking very good prior to him going down. I'm also hot on Parrott, looks like he could be a key but definitely not in the same league as those mentioned yet.

NoLanguage

Heeney for sure

Post_MaSloane

28 trades left, outed Kelly and Ryan last week for Mitchell and Henry. All of those players have 2 first names. The Supercoach gods are not going to be happy….

JugHead

If you have Sam Murray and Dom Barry….just give up now..lol

Post_MaSloane

Yep Jughead have them too… And Mitch Duncan

Krups

Goldy to Grundy
Billings to Gray

Whatyasmokin

Dunno, they appear to be good trades but u are paying high

Krups

Hmmm true

DavidSA

It will hurt if from this point onwards and till the end IF both Gray and Grundy only score 5-10 pts more combined vs Billings and Goldstein after cashing in your loses.

I personally don't think it's a risk to say they won't gain you 20+ pts every round compared to what you have. Just all that cash you are accepting to lose is all.

KSinny

This is a bit of a risky play but could work out Well and hopefully be an MLG play.

Trade Kelly to Coffield and swap Finlayson into the midfield and coffield into the backline, then trade Venebles and get Robbie Gray in the forward like leaving me with 200k in the bank to get Danger in about 2 weeks. Thoughts?

Derek

Do you have any DPP in your forward line?

You should.

Just go Kelly to Gray via DPP

KSinny

Yeah if got Heeney and Petracca, not really sure how to do that can u explain it?

KSinny

But Gray's only a Mid not a Mid/Fwd

Derek

Put up your whole team and I’ll show you

KSinny

(Before trade)
DEF: Laird, Simpson, Sicily, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Naughton, Murphy)

MID: Titch, Dusty, Kelly, Fyfe, Zerrett, Cripps, Kelly, Holman (Garlett, Brayshaw, Banfield)

RUC: Gawn, Nank (Olango)

FWD: Henney, Billings, Smith, Tracca, Fritch, Henry (Venables, Keefe)

Derek

Trade out Kelly, before you choose who you are going to trade in, you will notice a little ‘s’ above Heeney. Click on the ‘ss’ and then all the trade in players become the forwards. You can select Gray.

Only problem it this swings Heeney into the midfield for now.

KSinny

Wow didn't even know u could do that, cheers man!

Whatyasmokin

Theres good reasons for these trades with injuries so id do them.

Derek

I’d hold Venables until we know how long he is out. He hasn’t made enough cash and he is good for forward line loophole

hedski

They are saying same as Ryan, 10-12 weeks, punt him.

Derek

I hadn’t heard that

luu

Hey beautiful people, have 26 trades left with 100k in the bank. thinking of getting rid of either Hibberd or Billings. Should I:

1. Trade Billings for Franklin or Gray
2. Trade Hibberd for Hurley or Yeo
3. Hold

Cheers

KSinny

Hold Billings and see how Hibberd goes this week with Lewis out.

Whatyasmokin

I would consider Billings out tough run for saints coming up. Its now or never he will come good at some stage.

Neverweaken

Aim for Hurley and Franklin at some point.

TommyC99

Trade Kruez – Nic Nat
or
Kruez – Grundy AND Ryan – Mirra/Guelfi (via keeffe, lose def/fwd swing with sicily, both will be fwd)

Have 26 trades left heading into this week

Sana

I have the same dilemma Tommy. Nic Nat could really go big if he gets more game time, but is serviceable anyway. But the injury history worries me. Think I'll take Grundy if I can. Blokes dominating.

DEE

why trade out Kreuzer?

TommyC99

Because he's averaging 73 and looks injured

Scouser

Why would you keep him? What are you seeing Dee as can't see any benefit holding him atm?

DEE

I need a good forward rookie that's on the bubble and has a good JS, any suggestions please?

DEE

FWD or MID rookie suggestions?

seen_burns

Need to wait a week on Guelfi from Essendon he looks promising, Coffield who is mid/def on the bubble, and Willie Rioli (fwd) who looks like he is going to score better with Liam Ryan out

Derek

G-Langdon might be back this weekI

Finnius

Zach giles langdon may be back this week if you don't have him.

HadAGutfuk

Jack Billings makes me want to cut my own leg off at the femur. Thank you.

DavidSA

Lek you just Billings averages 101 in wins and 85 in loses……
Saints look terrible this year and he is playing terrible also
He has to go

Flaccid Jaff

Does anyone have the scoop on Dean Kent?
Role change or a flukey couple of weeks?
Not expecting him to be a keeper but could be a handy step up to a keeper with better js and scoring potential than any rookie coming up.

Also, get rid of cox or brayshaw? And will coffield stay in the side?

Tommo

I’m have a shocker of a start to the year
I’ve never been close to winning it all but this year has been horrible

I need some advice on what to do with my team this week
I’m think I should get Coffield in but I want to do a double downgrade but there is no one else o tree to

Def: Laird Simpson Hurley Finlayson Murray Doedee (Naughton O’Connor)
Mid: Danger Fyfe Kelly Bont OMeara Kelly Holman Brayshaw (Dow LDU Clark)
Ruc: Gawn NicNat (Cameron)
Fwd: Buddy Heeney Lynch Petracca Christensen Henry (Garlett Fritsch)

28 trades and 240k left

Derek

i think you might have started a few too many of the expensive rookies. I count at least 5. They haven’t really worked out. And now you are going to get another one?!

Time to get a big M6

Tommo

Yep ok sounds good
I like it

Adam

I’ve got 290k in the bank
If Armitage is not named do I flog him for a 550k and under mid of swing fwd to fill my fwd line ?
