PODCAST | The Non-Daniel Rich Episode Where We Don’t Discuss Daniel Rich. At All.

Published by Patch on

Lekdog promised we wouldn’t talk about Daniel Rich this week. He lied. Damo joined us and he also talked about Daniel Rich. I’m at my wit’s end, community. Is he an option? What do we do?

We talk about who to flick and who to hold, what to do. We talk through rookies, we talk through fallen premiums and some premiums who haven’t fallen, but are still value.

Remember to join us on Twitch during the week:
https://www.twitch.tv/lekdoggames.

What are your moves for this week?

Really thinking I'd like to make up some points deficit this week and just go this guy to that dude, and that dude to this guy to speed up the point generation.
Don't think there are any outstanding rookies who have to come in this week. Glad I got Ross though.
Daniel's been pretty good, for a 3 ft 7 guy, doubt he'll ever get tagged like a Tim Kelly type will…wears an alleged helmet on his head and gets a fair bit of ball.
Getting a bit sick of Goldy's less than premo ruck scores, thought he would've done better this year but not to be I guess…. Scrimshaw might've peaked.
I'm gonna hold on Libba and Constable and Walsh…wouldn't trade Libba yet.
Westhoff could be one to watch soon if he backs up his 92…very cheap.
ROB will become a premo forward in a few weeks.
I'm a bit behind the guns but still doing ok, I know I'm not a great player but have moved up in some of my Leagues this week so that's ok.
It's all a bit of lighthearted entertainment…in between working your ass off…lol

JEL

Yep, at the end of the day it's a bit of fun, sort of like a hobby.
You try to do your best, but you know it's not the be all and end all.

A little harsh on Goldy, he is the 4th best Ruck by points though he's not lighting it up like I hoped.

Russty_

Hey Jel, if he's the 4th best then I guess we all should've started with Grundy and Gawn really..in hindsight, I just thought he would've done better this year.
I guess some of the guys who started with Whitfield and Cogs will be suffering a bit this week, Whit will be a bargain soon.

Sixtybloody6

Not suffering as much as having darling lol.

Russty_

Well, this is very true!

Jimmy

Surely you wait until ROB maxes out and go down to bines banking a handy 300-350k to upgrade goldy to gawn/grundy whichever you don’t have as well as a premo fwd

Russty_

Already have Bines in the fwd line Jimmy waiting to go back to R3 when the time is right.

GloryDays94

Goldy is unlucky. I feel his points haven't reflected a couple of his games.. got absolutely robbed last weekend. Should have been 105 or more in atleast a couple more games. Personally I am holding as he is on no way failing and there are other things to do with my team

Nice_Person

Unlucky???? You get points for doing things

Russty_

My insight of the week…it's never as easy as you think it's going to be, and then you get short on trades, and then your team isn't what you thought it'd be. And then the injuries kick in…
And then you try to make it what you thought it should be…and then you run out of trades, and then you wish you never started ha

Derek

Yep. It soon becomes all about the number of trades left.

This year has been fairly good with injuries ( touch wood)

Rivo

29 trades and missed the Tiger rooks last week.. ๐Ÿ™„

Low on cash and looking at getting Hayes & a fallen premo by moving on Clark/Collins/Butters.

However not much around $450k. Hold another week or 2, or look at the likes of Houli, Worpell?

Derek

Build your war chest and go Bang Bang

Don’t get someone you don’t want just because that’s all you can afford. Sounds like my son, wants to buy a crap car NOW instead of waiting a bit longer, save a few more dollars (I’m even matching him dollar for dollar) and get a good one.

What was yabby’s story about the boy with the shoes? Pay the Price!

Rivo

Any thoughts Community?

Derek

I’m considering Greene from GWS.

Looking at their draw up to the byes, Saints, Hawks, Carlton, Melbourne, Suns, Crows, North.

GWS might tear a few of those games apart and Toby will get on the end of a few.

As for GWS’s last 4 games of year (SC finals) 3 at home Swans, Hawks and Dogs, and Suns away for last round.

I might not get Greene, but Kelly will be a must have and Cameron very likely.

dontblushbaby

Same, I raised this the other day but go negative feedback , that’s all good with his history and I understand ,but I believe to get to full Premo we have to take a risk on fallens imo

Derek

The forward line is a basket case this year.

Buddy, Gray, Wingard, Devon, Menagola, Hoff, Dunkley, Gunston all so cheap and getting cheaper.

Greene won’t look that cheap soon.

One or two of them are going to have a big second half of the year, Dunkley or Wingard of 2018 like. But who? Whoever gets F4, F5, F6 right this year will rocket

Rivo

Yes that’s the tough call. Daniel looking very reliable, will it last?

HarryH76

Add TMac to that list. Gun when right but shocking start to season. But if they keep him down back does he recover?

Gainsy

Im looking at collins and butters as well if needing cash. Worpel looks good. Top 10 forward is where i place him. There's plenty of fallen almost premos to take a punt on… menegola, mclean, dunkley, dahl, … even old man selwood… oh and ruck forward hoff if thats your thing

Rivo

Thanks against. Worpell is on my radar though feels like a stepping stone move. Possible keeper at F6 though if I get him now, I miss cash gen by going double down this week and targeting a Neale or Whitfield next week. Key for me this week is whether Rotham plays.

Chris

Will Laird be top 6 this season? once milera and seedsman come back into the side…will it affect his scoring output?

Swans2012

I reckon he’ll be up and rolling by the time they are back, top 6 for me

NoLanguage96

Definitely

Shake_n_bake

Buddy out again this week

Derek

Henney forward again

KSinny

Anyone got any news on Whitfield and Cogs?

Binga

Leon Cameron comments on Cogs,Whitfield and Davis!!

LC on Coniglio: he’s avoided surgery, which is really good.

He’s got to get through the main session tomorrow and sees how he pulls up.

LC on other injuries: Whitfield is probably more unlikely than likely.

Phil is probably that 70-30… but if he’s not right, he’s not right.

redherringfc

Good news for the Saints.

Shake_n_bake

Whitfield won’t play

Cotchinator

Trades this week:
1. Liberatore to Fyfe
2. Scrimshaw to Laird.
Reasoning: Laird appears to be coming good and Fyfe won't get any cheaper.
Trade target Whitfield in 2-3 weeks.

Bells

Who should I cull to bring in Fyfe, Libba, Walsh or Rocky?

Sana

If you have to do it, whoever has the most unreachable BE

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Move rob to r2
DPP Grundy
Trade butters to fyfe and grundy to boak.

Would probably never do it but it is a tantalising option.

Grundy
Drew
Butters

V

Rob
Boak
Fyfe

Derek

Looks good, but have a quick look at the Crows and Collingwood next 6-7 games. Seriously, there could be 50pts a week difference between Grundy and ROB.

I’m just happy with the cash he is making

Sana

I like this madness. I don't have ROB but I'm considering something similar… Goldy to ROB. I have Grundy, but I know I'll want him back, whereas really I'll want Gawn in for Goldy at some point, might as well lock in some cash generation first (ROB should reach at least 400-450k?)?

Madness. Could be genius?

TommyC99

You wont generate enough cash from ROB to warrant it. You have already missed out on 2 price rises. While he has been performing outstanding 1 below average – average score and he wont make much more money. Not sure its worth 2 trades

Maverick_

I agree with TommyC I did the Goldy to rob move on the bubble given me a bank of 800k you’ve now missed two price rises not sure it’s worth doing now Sana..

Trigg that’s a bold move to axe the number #1 ruck n almost #1 in comp like Derek says there could be 50 Pts most weeks. And you’ll want want him again come seasons end? I’d be just enjoying his cash generation look for other ways to get Fyfe in.

Sana

Tend to agree. I’ll likely (hopefully) have a single trade opportunity to jump to Gawn at some point. No need for a late jump onto the ROB bandwagon even if he made another 150k. Thanks fellas

OldOwl

It's a great move.
Undies,Drew and Butter are averaging 261 p/week BUT ROB,Boak and Fyffe are averaging 324 p/week. If you exclude Fyfes injury game ROB, Boak & Fyfe are averaging 335 p/week. So, that equals a 63-75 points p/week increase in team output.
It's also good that Derek and the masses don't like the move because the masses never finish in the top 50 and Derek is rubbish at supercoach

Derek

The byes stuffed my season last year. Relied on rookies on field too much and they either got rested or stunk.

I’ve just had my spreadsheets open and oh dear, I knew around 13 would be bad but it is worse than I thought.

Not only do I need to consider non-round13 bye Premiums, I need to consider the rookies as well as the next batch of rookies might need to be called upon. (Having just got Lockhart and Hore and looking at Aneswerth next week)

TommyC99

As much as I want to bring Fyfe in, only way j can do it is through Libba, so probably not wise.

Trade out Scott or Atkins for Hayes?

Derek

I would have thought Fyfe would be much cheaper after such a poor score 3 weeks ago. Not the must trade I originally thought.

I’m going to wait a week, let the rookies fatten just a bit more and get JKelly. Next week he will be same price as Fyfe is this week.

GWS draw to the byes is insane.

Kelly in 3% of teams.

Shake_n_bake

Only a 90 BE thou Derek

Mick

J Kelly’s BE is 128

Derek

Next week Kelly will be cheaper. I’ll look at him next week.

HarryH76

Yep everyone jumping on Fyfe this week and I'm seriously tempted. But Kelly is a superstar. He was in my side all pre season before injury and I'm tempted to pass on Fyfe to get Kelly in

ROB14

Kelly will get tagged by Steele this week… I'd wait and see what happens

TommyC99

Is his Bye an issue though Derek? In the guts i only have Oliver with that bye but i have at least 2 keepers on each line.
Def: Hurn, Crisp, Williams
Mid: Oliver
Ruc: Gawn, Grundy
Fwd: Danger, Heeney

I really want Whitfield or Lloyd but round 13 is already looking like a struggle so don't think i can afford to. With those players out in round 13, is Kelly still an option and won't be detrimental for the byes?

Derek

GWS have round 14 bye

TommyC99

Oh crap true. They must have shared a bye with Geelong last year which is why i have got them confused. This makes him a much more appealing prospect, as does Whitfield

Derek

look at GWS’s last 4 games during the SC finals. Huh?

TommyC99

Got Sydney, Hawks, Dogs and suns to finish the season. to say thats favourable is a massive understatement

Derek

3 of last 4 at homeI

FearTheBeard

Lads can I please get some wisdom from all the usual suspects and anyone who else wants to spend 10 seconds replying to me lol.

Got a warchest. Was tossing up a few options.

Do I bring Neale in for Atkins and enjoy the M8 of Constable/Ross with all guns inside locked in.

Do I use the warchest on a double upgrade instead. I can get Daniel & Heeney/Cameron? locked into my forward line (with Danger, Boak, Kelly already here). WHICH would also allow me to push Moore up to slot in at D4 with Hore & Duurma as my D5,D6.

Do I get Daniel and then upgrade a defender to say Lloyd, Sicily, Hurn? Meaning Moore would stay down as F5 and still leave Hore & Duurmsa as my only defender upgrades?

HELP!!!!

I was going Neale because with the bank there it's easy to get him now rather then chase him. Though with 160 breakeven I could probz afford 2 weeks and a double downgrade to go for him with double upgrade this week locking away 2 forwards or 1 defender, 1 forward gun which makes me squad arguable deeper/stronger.

Thoughts?

TommyC99

I personally like option 3 better. Lloyd looking must have and scoring points for fun.

Could Hewett go to Neale? With a 160 BE if he scores around the 100 mark is will suffer a nice price drop.

How many fwd rookies do you have onfield. I think priority number 1 should be getting Parker and Petrucelle off your field, or at least 1 of them and being able to loop.

While Neale is scoring points at will, i think mid rookies are quite reliable at the moment so getting rookies off field on the other lines should be more of a priority

FearTheBeard

Yes this is how I'm looking at it all now too after reversing on Neale (hard to do)

I have Danger, Boak, Kelly, Marshall (who I have to trade out by the looks of it to Daniel maybe?), Moore (who I could swing up for Heeney/Cameron). Drew.

If I leave more down here and bring in Sicily/Lloyd/Hurn it would also strengthen up there I guess. 1 premium defender, 1 forward. Question is can we trust Daniels first 6 weeks? Do I pass and wait and make sure? Is it worth rolling the dice on Greene if you risk it on Daniel? ๐Ÿ˜

Derek

I’ve had to cross Neale off because of his round 13 bye.

Derek

Same with Lloyd. R13.

FearTheBeard

Hey Derek,

You are always useful ๐Ÿ˜› you got any thoughts for me?

Daniel/Greene worth going? Steer clear and go Heeney? Cameron maybe?

Sicily/Hurn/Lloyd?

Or just lock Neale in ffs.

Derek

Put your team upI

FearTheBeard

Ok hold up.

FearTheBeard

Laird, Smith, Williams, Scrimshaw, Duurmsa, Hore (Clark, Burgess)

Cripps, Macrae, Fyfe, Cogs, Rocky, Walsh, Constable, Ross (Stack, Atkins, Scott)

Grundy, Gawn, (O'Brien)

Boak, Danger, Kelly, Marshall, Moore, Drew (Petrucelle, Bines)

FearTheBeard

So as you can see once O'Brien fattens up Bines goes back up and a upgrade is ready.

If I got Atkins out for Neale, Ross/Constable goes to bench and leaves one of them on field for a bit.

Looking at Marshall/Scrimshaw out this week. Allows me to move Moore up and have five forwards set with the O'Brien coin for the 6th down track, or one in and one in for Scrimshaw (Lloyd/Hurn/Sicily)

Derek

How much in bank?

FearTheBeard

320-350k cant check exact figure atm.

Worked out enough to get neale in for aitkin with another rookie brought in + a decent bank still

Or two premium upgrades i mentioned for marshall/scrimshaw/moore.

redherringfc

Scrimshaw out, Moore back, Hawkins in.

FearTheBeard

Hawkins? Really? Thinking Daniels & Sicily atm or Lloyd?

redherringfc

504k. BE of 104. only in 2% of teams

Less likely to drop a turd than T Kelly. He will kill it from here on. Great POD as no one wants a key position player.

redherringfc

Also a great player to put the V on when he plays early, because he could belt out the odd 200.

FearTheBeard

Had a look, not a bad outside bet though with Kelly & Danger already in my forward line I can't go 3 cats deep.

Derek

If he played all his games in Geelong he would be a must have.

FearTheBeard

๐Ÿ˜ Your thoughts?

redherringfc

They do have an easy draw though. Have a look at all their games, they’d have to be favourites in every single one.

I’m jumping on board this week and am quite happy if no one else does.

Derek

I like the double upgrade option.

Marshall and Scrimshaw to Premiums. Hurn, Sic or Lloyd all good. Forward premiums are a lottery, Cameron is starting to look good especially with GWS draw next 7 weeks.

You have Burgess, Scott (if they don’t play)and Bines as all active loopholes this week, should be able to help with the on field rookies.

FearTheBeard

So who you reckon lol. Sicily & Daniel means Scrimshaw goes?

Lloyd & Cameron/Hawkins means Moore has to go and Scrimshaw says a week?

FearTheBeard

Or is Greene worth considering now to save bank for next week?

TelescopicCox

I like option 3, as much as I prefer to bring in a rolled gold midfield gun like Neale, as Tommy has said below, you can maxmise your points by playing mid rookies over FWD rookies.

I'd look at Daniel and Sicily or Lloyd (if your byes allows it)

Shake_n_bake

Stocker to get a gig this weekend.

Tofa

As always boys great stuff and very entertaining. Can't wait to buy bargain basement Whitfield in a couple weeks.
But where was the rookie talk? I can't trust my instincts on the latest bubble boys they're as disastrous as Lekdog's (no offense matey) I need a def for J Clark and a mid for Cousins to build the war chest. was thinking maybe Hayes and Young??
thoughts??

SHIEL BE RIGHT

I need your help community on any potential trades on my team:

DEF – LLOYD, SMITH, WILLIAMS, RIDLEY, DUURSMA, HORE, CLARKE & ROTHAM
MID – CRIPS, FYFE, OLIVER, CONIGLIO, SHIEL, CROUCH, WALSH, CONSTABLE, STACK & SCOTT
RUCK – GRUNDY, GAWN, CLARKE
FWD – DANGER, HEENEY, DAHLAUS, DREW, PETRUCCELLE, BAKER, SETTERFIELD & BALTA

SHIEL BE RIGHT

$260,000 IN THE KITTY

Dave

Get petrol off the field. Trade in a fwd

SHIEL BE RIGHT

ANY POTENTIAL FWD SUGGESTIONS?

redherringfc

Hawkins.

Or be like everyone else and get Kelly.

Derek

Hawks play Melbourne this week. Defenders score very well against Melbourne.

Harry

Brayshaw or Sam Walsh out for Fyfe??

Ja191

Brayshaw

Saritz

Neither. Hold Walsh until at least the byes. I’m planning on having him as my M9 for loopholes/injuries at years end. And Brayshaw is playing well… when in the midfield. He is playing up forward a lot too now, which is when he goes quiet. But Viney out for 2 weeks!!! Expect Brayshaw (and Oliver) to score better.

I know Fyfe is cheap, but don’t sacrifice your structure to get him in. Do it by painting the fence. It’s not like Fyfe will be unaffordable next week

Mint

DEF: Lloyd, Williams, Smith, Rozee, Duursma, clark ( Hore, Burgess)
MID: Cripps, Neale, Macrae, B.crouch, Libba, Rockliff, Walsh, Constable ( Atkins, Scott, Gibbons)
RUCK: Gawn, Grundy ( o'brien)
FWD: DangerField, Heeney, Dunkley, Moore, Drew, Bines ( Petruccelle, Parker)
Got 56 k In the bank
25 trades left
NEED HELP!!!!

Will 45

maybe trade atkins for hayes for some cash gen since you only have 56k

Big dawg

How many trades do we all have? I’m at 26 and thinking of making 1 or 2 this week

redherringfc

27 but making 2 when teams drop.

It’ll be close to 2 a week from here on. Cows are getting fat, but need some fresh ones to come along.

Pranav

29 but should not much cash in bank and 2 trades this week wont result in an upgrade but a sideways move instead which isnt ideal

Sixtybloody6

I have 16 left

Tyruddanaut

This week I’m keeping it simple. Nice upgrade.

Scrimshaw and Atkins to Ruch and Hayes

WithAllDueRespect

Scrimshaw and Atkins to LAIRD and HAYES for me.

Dan

I've been considering making these moves as well.
How do you think Laird will go once Milera is back in the team? (apparently 3-4 weeks away)

Sharkmove_King

He was pretty much averaging 100 with Milera there wasn't he? Worst case scenario I think he is still top6

Tyruddanaut

I think we’re holding on to past form here. I’m banking top 8 and worst case top 10 but I think he will continue to average high 90s or maybe low 100s

kevdup

Me 3, considering the same, Laird definate top 6 ๐Ÿ‘

Johno

Thinking going Coniglio to Treloar. Whats everyones thoughts?

FearTheBeard

Why?

Johno

Not sure that Coniglio is really endgame and keeps losing money. Treloar seems (to me) to be fairly priced and is seeing more consistent higher scores

FearTheBeard

Cogs had one stinker and thats his only game under 100? Trealor has had 2 under 100 (both in 80's) if he hadn't got the 150 wouldn't be a snifif. I wouldn't do that trade at all.

Rick Grimes

Agree. Cogs can and will go huge. Its a matter of time.

Adam

Now thats the biggest sideways trade. Why waste a trade for that? In my opinion i still reckon coniglio will still average more than treloar at the end of the season

Thomas

First time reveal this season. I'm only interested in winning my cash league. Can i get some opinions please guy
DEF: Hurn, Whitfield, Laird, Z.Will, Duursma, Hore, (Scrim, Atkins)
MID: P.Cripp, Neale, Merrett, Ang Brayshaw, Walsh, Constable, Ross, (Stack, Clarke, Scott)
RUC: Grundy, Gawn, ROB
FWD: Danger, Heeney, T.Kelly, Moore, Drew, Setterfield, (Petru, Parker)
I have 25 trades, and $231,900
I have been planning for Fyfe this week.
OUT Atkins and Clarke. IN L.Young and Fyfe
Love to hear opinions and advice please.

Derek

Depends how strong your cash league is and how hard it will be to make the top 8.

The best way to win leagues is to have plenty of trades at the back end of season and going into the finals. I see it many times, I high placed team die in the league finals because they had no trades left. Remember that teams start resting players or sending them off for early surgery. So hold your trades as long as you are still winning enough matches to get you into top 8.

The other thing to look at is the last month of footy. What teams have a soft run home during the SuperCoach Finals? GWS, Port and Cats look juicy.

Thomas

Thanks Derek, The only one to respond and give genuine advice. It will be taken on board. Much appreciated.

Adam Clarke

What should i do with menegola? keep or trade? any suggestions

Mick

Keep, lost too much money to trade now and is coming off a solid game.

Russty_

He usually finishes the year quite well Adam.

Tommo09

Who do I trade out for Hayes this week out of Butters Gibbons Atkins and Scott?
Will also trade Petracca to Kelly using this $$

Adam

Atkins for Hayes

Rick Grimes

If Whitfield is an out I might do something a bit snazzy. 1 week could be 2, comes back and stinks it up. In 5-6 weeks time he's worth $400k and you've missed out on premo output.

Nice_Person

You'll trade whit???

Nice_Person

You won't do that mate I can 100% guarantee that you will not do that. Too big of a move, and from what I've seen in the past you play it too safe

Rick Grimes

Might surprise you. My team isn't particularly conventional at present.

Nice_Person

You won't trade whit

Sixtybloody6

Don't listen to that flog Rick! I'm trading whit. As we know I'm very good on Intel with giants. Whit is 2 weeks minimum with his skinny chicken bone of a leg. Whit to boak via swing.

Derek

Sounds like a Grimes Manoeuvre

JohnDJ59

Whitfield to Hurn ?

Nice_Person

He's not gonna do it no point in asking mate

TelescopicCox

I'd say it works if you started with him, otherwise burning 3 trades for 1 player (out-in-out)

Maverick_

Riteo Lek, Patch & damo i cannot hide it anymore i'm coming clean…
your 2019 podcast intros, my god! stephen quartermain gets the juices flowing and and the arousel levels too a dangerously high level!
almost to the point where i am too nervous to wack the airpods in anywhere public and listen too your podcasts anymore incase I cannot control myself! No hate please

Maverick_

I like the intro sixty6 and I respect and appreciate the work the fellas put in each week. Still waiting for your n wows podcast that you promised everyone last year…

Russty_

It'd be pretty hard for him to impersonate the alleged other one Mav, we all know there's only one of them.

Russty_

Why are you still here then mate?…you disrespect the guys in charge of this site, you've been banned and are only here under a dodgy Russian VPN. .. your comments get deleted regularly..so anything you have to say disappears anyway because it's usually some kind of ridicule and / or abuse.
I feel sorry for you cause you don't seem to have anything in your life that encourages you to be a good person. I feel really sad for you.
Surely there are other places you could go that might actually welcome your opinions…maybe not until you rectify your attitude problem though.
I'm worried about you buddy, hope you can get the help you need before it's too late, because this downward spiral you're on isn't healthy.
I hope you can get the relevant counseling you need, as no one likes to see anyone else suffer and mental health issues are a big thing these days and need the appropriate attention.
Good luck big fella ๐Ÿ™‚

Nice_Person

You're pretty damn rude rusty, mixing in jokes, digs and mental health issues.

Just saying mate

Lekdog

Mate I lose control when I hear it too! Shoutout to Teller Beats!

GloryDays94

Atkins to Hayes
Moore to Boak

My trades for this week. Boak is not going down anytime soon so time to get him in!
Would love to keep Moore but he is the only way I can get Boak in

Derek

Good move. I really thought Boak was going to be effected more when Wines came back. Got that one wrong

Sixtybloody6

This week I do another 2 trades. 7th week straight I continue to steam roll the team to full premo by rd 10. I am goat. Get around me!

Rick Grimes

Tradeless with 6 rounds to go, ravaged by injuries, dropped to 5000th. Have you not learnt anything from last year?

gator59

I think you love to stroke your 2 inch wad

Saritz

I love you 60bloody6

Derek

Is JKelly in your team? How is he looking?

Derek

They have such an easy run to the bye, he is tempting now

Russty_

I don't think this is the real 66…if there is a real one hehe

TommyC99

Since scott isnt playing is it worth going Scott – Hayes? Or would we not be banking enough cash from the trade so go atkins?

Kewbie Bear

Grappling with the same issue. If Scott comes back I'll hold, if not I'll probably just trade to Hayes and slowly begin to build a war chest leading into byes

Nozzy

Fyfe or Boak?

Saritz

Everyone is jumping on the Fyfe train. So that’s why I’m going Boak. But not being a sheep aside, my mids and def are doing ok, with some solid rookies. My forward line is my weakest. So I gain more to make by upgrading this line first (welcome Boak!). I think that’s what you need to decide… where are you most deficient

DavidC

Not going anywhere near Fyfe, the guy will just get injured or suspended again.

Dash

27 Trades and 146k. Would appreciate your trade thoughts?

Laird, Whitfield, D Moore, Collins, Scrimshaw, Duursma, Burgess, Clark,
Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Butters, Constable, Scott, Atkins, Gibbons
Gawn, Grundy, Bines
Danger, Heeney, Boak, Drew, Parker, Petrucelle, Setterfield, Balta

JohnDJ59

I'd be upgrading one of your fwd rookies to Kelly.

Maverick_

Maybe Atkins to Hayes and Parker to kelly.

C. Damien 3 votes

Scrimshaw to L Young, Constable to whoever you want

Adrian

I would probably double downgrade this week looking at your team. Scrimshaw/Collins & Butters for Young & Hayes.
Come up with a plan for the byes though

Alternatively Collins/Scrimshaw out for Young. Balta to Daniel/Kelly would be great but think it will be touch and go with cash

JohnDJ59

I just looked at my bye rounds for the first time since the start and if I don't trade between now and after the byes I will be able to field 18 players each bye round. Now I know that won't happen, since I will have to upgrade players in that time, but something to ponder.

Derek

Mine are a disaster. All my trades in have to be players who will play round 13.

Swans2012

Did the same yesterday John, mine looking fine as well

JohnDJ59

It's great when something comes together without trying, I'll just have to keep an eye on the players draw that I bring in from now on.

Steeeve

Having a bad season, ranked outside 20,000, but this week I'm happy. Because I just traded Atkins straight to Fyfe with only $200 leftover. If Atkins scored a point less and Fyfe a point more I couldn't have afforded it. Thank you SC Goss.

DavidC

Now watch Atkins outscore Fyfe this week, it can be a cruel game at times.

Steeeve

Hahaha wouldn't surprise me if Atkins tonnes up and Fyfe scores a 60

Mitch

R gray to who? Have danger and heeney. Money isn’t a issue

Nick

Boak or Daniel

Nick

Hi Community,
Thoughts on the below
Option 1: gray to Boak
Option 2: Gray to Caleb Daniel and b crouch tonfufe??
Thoughts please, l have 23 trades left

Nick

To Fyfe *

Holty01

Who is ur m8?

Nick

Duursma

Nick

My midfield is Cripps Neale Oliver Bradshaw b crouch Walsh Constable Duursma

Matt

Do I go a double upgrade
Atkins too Tim kelly
& Clark to laird/boak?

Just Meaning I have to pass on Hayes.
Picked up Ross last week and got one eye on hately eventually

JohnDJ59

I'd get in either T.Kelly or Boak and Hayes, I'm grabbing the cash generators while they are there and Hayes JS seems alright.

Matt

Thanks for replying John. Boak I can probably hold off on Tim’s BE is very low I think boak is 120. Maybe I better go Atkins too Hayes

Holty01

Hi John. I’m not sure on Hayes. Seems he will be a slow burn but not really anything else out there though. I may even go early on a rookie like Larkey, Answerth etc

JohnDJ59

As you said Holty, not a lot out there, so take them while you can and don't ever go early. The last three weeks I've traded in Stack, O'Brien, Ross and now Hayes, all on the bubble.Out went Gibbons, Butters, Setterfield and Lycett. I probably went a bit early on those players, but someone had to go to get the others in.

Matt

When I’m looking to make these upgrades should I use the Clark/Atkins type players as it’s a big jump with cash. Or do I use Moore’s, constable, Collins, rozee type players where the jump isn’t as large and sacrifice there Low BEs an cash generation …

JohnDJ59

Hey Matt I'd be trading out the Clark/Atkins type at least with Constable and Rozee they are scoring well and still making cash.

Maverick_

Agreed. Collins to rotham holty๐Ÿ’ฐ

Russty_

Could go a week early on Answerth Holty although I wouldn't advise it.

Holty01

It’s a tough one. Wanting to get rid of Scrim and Clark and trade in a back rookie and premo forward. A major POD as well.

The Hoff ?

Holty01

No. I was excited last week early when he started on the wing but moved forward in the 2nd and stayed there. I’m seriously considering the big fella from GWS.

Maverick_

GWS have a very very friendly draw holty.

Rick Grimes

Does Answerth have much JS?

ojs

Daniel or T.Kelly?

DavidC

Kelly

Shake_n_bake

Kelly 10 yr deal

neil demons delight

T or J

Loop

J – hopefully T will be at West Coast next year!

GWS

neil demons delight

2 years mate

TommyC99

Yup its 2 years with the option of increasing it to anywhere from 6-10 years

Rick Grimes

Ok, so he's burnt a lot of us, but is Houli an option? With Short out indefinitely, he's looks the main man. Already couple of big tons. Cheap as still.

Nice_Person

Trade whit to him…

Rick Grimes

More likely Clark, but thanks for the suggestion.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Misses too many games for mine

Rick Grimes

That's true.

Derek

He is $442k, more expensive than Williams and Smith.

If he was dirt cheap, maybe. But too expensive for what is the risk,.

Fearthebeard

Lloyd Sicily or Hurn?

Rick Grimes

Lloyd, Hurn, Cicily in that order, for mine. Lloyd is a CD darling. Gets points for breathing.

Gainsy

Sicily id say now. What about laird?

FearTheBeard

I am leaning towards Sicily as he is just a touch cheaper than Lloyd and will allow me to keep Moore instead of Scrimshaw. That said is it worth parting with Moore for Lloyd over Sicily (as both Scrimshaw/Moore go over next couple weeks)???

Derek

Sic could go massive this week against Melbourne. Defenders, especially intercept markers do very well against Melbourne

Shake_n_bake

Reid to get a call up. I don’t think cox will get up

neil demons delight

Same problem

Browncow

He is dead wood at the moment anyway.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Pun?

neil demons delight

got it trigg did you find the other one ?

NoLanguage96

Is Hayes worth jumping on? Haven't seen him play or know anything about the kid..

JS good for some cash gen or hold out for Hately/Answerth?

NoLanguage96

Could go Atkins to Hayes and Scrim to Sicily or Moore to Kelly but I only have 23 trades. Considering holding fire this week and letting the rooks fatten a little more

COREYSC

Is it worth trading B.Scott or Burgess despite they haven’t made any cash at all and to me I worry it’s a waste of a trade?

redherringfc

Burgess lost money in his last game. His scoring has been pitiful so there’s not much point waiting to see if he gets more games.

But don’t trade him to a rookie that has poor js. I’m holding him until a decent option pops up.

Scott, I’m hoping gets a few more games soon and gets a few more dollars into him.

Hoffwasmymistake

HELP!
DEF: Lloyd, Laird, Z.Will, Scrimshaw, Duursma, Hore, (Clark, Lockhart)
MID: P.Cripp, Macrae, M Crouch, Conigs, Ang Brayshaw, Walsh, Constable, Ross, (Stack, Gibbons, Scott)
RUC: Grundy, Gawn, ROB
FWD: Danger, Heeney, Hoff, Drew, Setterfield, Petru (Balta, Parker)

$292.6k in the Bank with 26 trades.

Thinking:
– Constable > Fyfe
or – Scrim > Hurn
Or hold this week, downgrade next, double up the week after

FearTheBeard

I'd hold off on Constable this week as he has some good cash left. Hurn over Scrim is attractive.

redherringfc

If it was my team I’d be getting another premium in the forwards as my first priority.

I haven’t looked at breakevens but I’d pick the highest out of the forward rookies and bring in a gun there. If you get the dollars, Boak looks a good pick. Kelly’s price looks like its as low as it will go, but I’d go (and am going) Hawkins this week.

Hold on Hoff and cross your fingers he turns it around.

Funkhouser

With only $490 to spend on a defender it looks like Daniel Rich will be joining my team as the best option and hope he ends up top eight defender.
Never thought I'd be picking him again, this is all Legdog's doing, Well we play this game for fun, time to enjoy the rollercoaster…

Peter56

I just traded in Scrimshaw for him too, fingers crossed

FearTheBeard

Lloyd Sicily or Hurn?

If I go Sicily I get to trade out Scrimshaw and field Moore?

If I go Hurn/Lloyd I have to field Petrucelle and trade out Moore this week?

With that said either Scrimshaw/Moore would likely go the following week so it's not a huge difference? Lloyd is my gut feeling though fielding Moore over Petrucelle is attractive (then again WCE playing Suns)

Binga

Thoughts on trading in Pendles?

FearTheBeard

Played extremely well though I feel there is a clear group of elite SUPERCOACH midfields that must be picked before him.

Pies midfield worry me too as they have a few that clearly share points.

TommyC99

Bit too inconsistent for mine. Pies draw does get easier so could be worth a punt, and you'd think Treloar or sidebum cops the tag before he does
