Supercoach RD6: LekDog’s Cheat Sheet

Published by Lekdog on

SuperCoach-Cheat-Sheet-RD6

G’day Community, this week we have a look at some very cheap premium options to bring into our sides.

Importantly we need to focus on not chasing points, waiting for players to be on the bubble before we trade them in and of course focusing on the byes.

A lot of coaches aren’t looking ahead to the byes and it stresses me out. We must be trading in premium options that are providing us value but equally we must be trading in players from each bye round. There is nothing worse than copping a donut during the bye rounds, believe me.

Shout out to our sponsor Fantasy Insider who helped me decide on some on field players this week resulting in a score of 2,332 (turns out that was pretty good). Make sure you take advantage of their free trial and if you don’t like their services (not bloody likely) you can cancel at anytime.

Joe.

Interesting re Franklin. Would people prefer buying him in over Dalhaus and MacRae?

Lance Franklin

For the price he is in comparsion to them, yes

Joe.

I can see the sense in it if I expect him to be an impact scorer rather than a weekly solid 100.

Russty_

I already have him but if I didn't, I'd wait another week, with a break even of 120 he'll probably get even cheaper and be bargain basement next week, especially if he spuds it this week.

Russty_

He could kick 10 and me look like a right flog lol

Tyruddanaut

Of course. He's 120k cheaper

Eric_the_Red

Great job Lek, as usual.
Thoughts on Steele? I feel he should hang around a little longer, but I could also turn him into a Neale in mids or Nank/Macrae up forward. Thoughts?

Joe.

Looks like you, too, could turn him into Franklin …

Eric_the_Red

Already got him.

Finnius123

Hold steele until other issues solved

whatyasmokin

Must have a freakin sweet team if you can upgrade steele right now, or your priorities are just wrong.

Eric_the_Red

Team is in decent knick mate

slats7

Another cracking Cheat Sheet as always Lek!

Thanks mate.

DacZawson

Would people go Nank or Buddy?

Finnius

Nank

Jkoel

Missed the boat on nank mate

Finnius123

Disagree. Will be a top end forward so still worth picking up at his currently low price.

Daniel Z

I'm with Finnius on this.
Would have been waaaay better to get him before price rises kicked in but he still is averaging well above his price and will be top 6 forward (or thereabouts) by year's end.

Tyruddanaut

What makes you think that at 480k

Matt___a

Nank

pod

Tigers have had an easy run, lets see how they go against good sides. Swans are about to play easy games starting with the Blues.

Ben

Wanting to make a downgrade this week but unsure of who to trade out as all my rookies can still make cash this week due to BE's still pretty low. My rookies are:
FWD: Houston, Eddy, Butler, WHE
MID: Parfitt, SPP, Barrett, Pickett
DEF: Stewart, Newman, Hampton, Otten, Marchbank

Also, do I make double downgrade of Balic and Fisher…or just one? If so, who?
Will only be looking to get in Vickers-Willis I think next week with an upgrade if I dont make one this week.

Have 27 trades remaining…ranked just outside top 4000

Russty_

You could go Eddy and Pickett out for Fisher and Balic or Pickett and WHE out for Fisher and Balic if you want more bikkies in the bank.

If you're only doing one, I'd say Fisher over Balic, better job security.

blake

what rookies should i play on field this week

DEF: 2 out of Hampton, Marcbank, Newman
MID: 1 out of Fisher and Balic
FWD: 3 out of Butler, Hardwick, Houstan, Parfit

Russty_

Newman and Hampton
Fisher
Houston, Butler, Hardwick

whatyasmokin

Agree with picks.

Not sure about Hardwick vs Parfitt (haven't seen Hardwick in action)

LoganJosh7

agree with rusty, but im going marchbank over newman

BradK

Marchbank over hampton. Newnam will kill it coz he's fighting for a spot.

Tyruddanaut

Marchbank and Newman ( If you have Adams, swing him into mid and play all 3
Fisher
Butler Hardwick and zhoustan

Imgonnalose

Hey community, I was thinking the trades
Pickett – Fisher
Hibberd – Balic

Or is that too sideways, instead should I be looking at downgrading WHE? currently have 29 trades before this week and am rank 400
Going for rank not league

Imgonnalose

Also have eddy

Kev

You must have NAILED starting selections to be ranked 400 after using only the one trade. Kudos. If you're not using Hibberd as a loophole than get rid of him, you'll need cash eventually and Balic will make you that.

Pickett will come back. You'll only make 50ish k from trading him. Not worth it

Imgonnalose

So would you recommend getting rid of Eddy or WHE instead of Pickett?
Thanks Kev, pretty happy, started with Pendles Sloane Selwood WHE Nank and Sandiwitts – sometimes things just work out

Finnius123

I personally would go with WHE because although starting selections has left you.in good stead – you still need to start the process to getting full premium or else you will be left behind. WHE is the clear downgrade option this week

whatyasmokin

Yep gotta clear him out now for Balic or an upgrade.

If Black works out next week then trade Parfitt or whoever else you have that needs culling in forward line.

Your Houston and Butlers can be upgraded in a couple weeks.

Jager Bombs

Thoughts on Patrick Cripps Lekdog? Havent seen as many blues games has he been looking better?

Is he ready to turn it on and come home a top 10 mid?

Would love the communities thoughts.

Jager Bombs

Thanks mate. Flipped the coin and im going to trade swallow to cripps. Started with swallow and its been a fail so far. Especially with a 94 breakeven and his 2 rubbish scores running through his avg for another 2 to 3 weeks.

2nd trade is moving WHE down to fisher. WHE may still have a bit of a rise in him but time to move.

If parsons plays next wk will move parfitt on and upgrade marchbank to heath shaw.

Tyruddanaut

109 LekD0G
He's scoring well don't downgrade young Crippsy.
Pick on someone else

AuroraBorealis?!

Josh Jenkins back in the crows side, RIP Ottens 90 avg.

Finnius123

Not necessarily- They were talking on league teams about Otten still playing forward because he has done so well there. Has also been named in the forward line, I think that Jenkins will just rolled hough the forwards as the key forward bench/ruck substitute for sauce, tex, Otten and Tom Lynch. Otten will probably still stay in the forward line there will just be another rotation through there.

whatyasmokin

Doubt it, Otten is a gun.

Russty_

Especially as he's shown, he can play back, back up in the Ruck, and kick goals in the fwd line, time will tell but can't see him getting dropped or his output being restricted by the coach or another player, if it ain't broke…..

Choice

Get rid of Preuss?

Ja191

no

Russty_

Not sure on that one, I'm gonna hold for now, can't believe he wasn't named actually, surely Goldy needs a bit of a backup? or maybe he spat his dummy to the coach when everyone was saying Preuss is North's new number one ruckman lol

LoganJosh7

preuss is emergancy so keep your ears open pre-game

Tyruddanaut

He is just resting at the moment expect in back in 2 rounds

Jack

Balic or Fisher?

whatyasmokin

Fisher or both.

Mandingo

Fisher vs Hardwick for job security?

whatyasmokin

Fisher.

Tyruddanaut

Hardwick is going to be out of the team as soon as all their guns are back

Ja191

2 on field out of Balic, SPP, Parfitt and Fisher?

whatyasmokin

SPP and Fisher.

Matt___a

SPP and Parfitt

Jeffreyhead

Mate, once again thank you for your legendary wisdom and insight. The defence options you've unveiled this week are so far under the radar it's criminal. I cant bring one in this week, but am now considering buddy and one of the defense options next week instead of hanners next week. Maybe save the mid trades for pendles and/or dusty in the weeks to follow. Thanks mate, you are a legend.

Drop Bears

Only $3600 in the pocket to start the week, so looking to double downgrade to the two obvious choices and sacrifice a few wins this weekend for a $200-$300k kitty to use next week.

WHE is a no brainer, but for the mids, should I kick Pickett who may well come back and slowly burn away quietly carrying the oranges for me, or kick Taranto in his return game against the Dogs for a little more cash to use next week?

Cheers.

Drop Bears

Or, do I punt SPP in the middle instead? I think I'd rather take the punt on keeping him with a BE of 41 with the round 9 bye only a few weeks away and turf him then for a few gorillas more.

whatyasmokin

Kick Pickett, has been dropped. Others are playing and can make cash.

Russty_

Don't reckon Pickett will come back, he's shite and should learn to play in the 2's for awhile.

Adam

Fisher or Balic???

whatyasmokin

Fisher, or both.

Harvey

Lock in Howe as a defender or wait for a price drop?

NoLanguage

I'd lock him in – sweeper role is great for SC

Finnius123

Still pretty good price – can't see him being lower than that this year. Good POD also

whatyasmokin

There might not be much of a price drop, and if there is, what is the point of waiting till round 15 and losing all his scoring?

You want him lock him in, barely over priced.

Bronson

Time to jump on Shaw?

whatyasmokin

I'm hesitant to call him a top defender this year.

Bronson

Yeah thats what I was thinking. But I wouldn't doubt Heater just yet

whatyasmokin

Has a 112 BE, needs to throw out a big score to convince me at this stage.

Tyruddanaut

I doubted him from the start

Russty_

Sometimes, a player's time is just over, and from then on, they score crap, not sure if that's the case with Shaw, you need to make your own call on that, but look at Steve Johnson, Griffin…other guys once they reach a certain age, just can't score anymore.
I won't be looking to get Shaw in anytime soon, unless he drastically turns it around.

Matt___a

yes

pod

no but watch for any improvement

Steve

hey guys,what's the go with loopholing non captain players?

Cheers

Steve

Cheers Lekdog

Tyruddanaut

I was confused on why Joel Smith was captain on my last H2H's game. Thanks

Jonathan

Swallow down to fisher and Roughead down to Balic giving me $540k to work with next week OR Roughy down to balic and Swallow up to any premium?

whatyasmokin

Take your pic. Depends who you want.

If you want Hanners/JPK/Parker then do it, if waiting for pendles to drop then wait and do the double downgrade.

Greng

Paint the fence. Might as well have a premo rather than spare cash…

Tyruddanaut

I completely agree. That's 50-80 points a round you're missing out on

Joe T

Great work Lek! Is Swallow a must-trade considering I brought him in for JOM's dodgy knee a couple of weeks ago? Seems like a bit of a waste using 2 trades on the same M7 spot but this year is throwing up all sorts of new strategies.

I'm thinking Swallow > Balic and Roughy > Macrae/Buddy. Could also go the other way and upgrade to a mid premo instead, but not as confident on what the top 10 mids are looking like just yet.

whatyasmokin

It is a complete waste using 2 trades on M7 that's why everyone on here were against the JOM>Swallow trade.

Your trades this week sound good, the classic paint the fence.

Ken

Trade o'meara for Heath Shaw through dpp?

whatyasmokin

If you feel Shaw is going to be a top 8 or so mid.

Stav

Hey team, is Jeremy Cameron a viable option as a trade in target? Good average, defensive efforts up, and a reasonable draw into and post bye. Thoughts?

Russty_

He's started well, but history says he'll struggle to maintain that average….but I think Greene, Buddy or Macrae would be better options if you don't have them.

Stav

Cheers Russty. Have macrae. Will probably go buddy. Feel like Greene's best and worst is further apart than Buddy's

Stav

Or, do I double downgrade to catch both balic and fisher on the bubble? It means I have a shit tin of cash in the bank for the round. Already had 430k in the bank.

Matt___a

no. dont go chasing points

pod

Cameron's roll has changed, he no longer sits in the goal square and spuds it. He is more like a roving forward now, similar to Nick Riewold. If he keeps this role he'll be top 5-6 forwards this season.

Stav

Or, do I double downgrade to catch both balic and fisher on the bubble? It means I have a shit tin of cash in the bank for the round. Already had 430k in the bank.

Russty_

Yeah Stav I'd go the double down…fill up the coffers and get whoever you want next week with a big BANG BANG..gotta keep generating the cash from the few Rookies who are actually getting games!..for future trades.

Tex

Hey guys, should I downgrade SPP to Balic and trade WHE to Franklin? Or just do the Balic trade this week, hold and pick up another player next week / after (like a Roo or a premo midfield)? Cheers!

whatyasmokin

Not interested in Fisher?

Tex

I picked up Williamson in Def last week, Fisher wasn't even on my radar. I guess the question is Balic V Fisher for Franklin or bring both in a do the double downgrade this week

Martin

Is it worth going Powell pepper to fisher?

Rocksta

Lek, we luv ya…….especially afyer the CK Photo with your or somebody elses Netter

Rocksta

Try again:
Lek, we luv ya…….specially after the CK Photo with your or somebody elses way Better half.

But I've gotta say……………This weeks cheat sheet is aptly named

You cheated !

Start Again

Mick

Hi guys, wanting to know if you rate Wines or not. Cheers

Russty_

He's on fire this year….so far, but he's only just barely managed to average over 100 once in his 4 previous seasons.
Robbie Gray could be a good pod, he's cheaper and has a higher ceiling…and has averaged over 100 for the past 3 seasons.

Greg

Might be a break out year?? Considering

BradK

Wines seems abit like Parker last year. Started on fire (averaging 130 first 5 rounds), to end up actially averaging 102 for the year (although this includes finals). Wines could very much struggle to average 105 from here on.

BradK

102* for the rest of the year

Tyruddanaut

Wines is the best in his team

FCAbel

Ollie's scores are great considering who they played. I hear that coach vossy has him running a few steps out before kicking ball when winning clearance. This has raised his kicking efficiency from 40-60%. I'm still not sure he's top 10, but think he'll improve on past years and will average 110+. I considered him this week, but think pendles at this price next week better.

Mick

Cheers lads

redherringfc

rate, but he won't make my team.

Matt

Is it too late to bring Newman in? Or is it still worth it? Only going for league and feel like there is still good cash generation potential in him. Was away the week he was on the bubble, didn't realise he was playing Thursday night, and then when I tried to trade him in on the Friday was too late. Was almost glad when he got dropped the following week!

Matt

Yeah, I'm torn. Already missed out on 80k, but think there's another 150k to 200k in him if he keeps getting games. With the rookie options so far massively underperformed, not sure if its too big of a risk to leave that cash behind. I'm just not sure who is on the horizon thats gonna bank us an easy 200k…

Tyruddanaut

You have time I think. I usually chock around now

matt

Hmm, well, at this stage, I've decided to pass on newman. instead, I cut roughy and swallow this week, brought in fisher and balic. Now have quite a large warchest and ready to start upgrading next week. Will stick with that plan for now, and suits my structure better, particularly because I'll probably go M Hibberd in def next week (from Melb, not Nth) as long as he has a reasonable game this week.

Tyruddanaut

Choke*

Conundrum

Is this week necessary to get both fisher and Balic in?

I'm looking at either downgrading omeara and Pickett for Balic and fisher

Or should I do an upgrade omeara and get in Heath Shaw through swinging Taylor Adams into mid??

I'm currently on 27 trades…should I look at using the two trades this week and do either double downgrade or get in Heath shaw and which one balic or fisher??

Choice

Out: Pickett, SPP
In: Vick-willis in def, Balic in mids (Adams swung in Mids)
This leaves me with Newman on field plus cash in the bank for next week
Or
Out SPP, O'meara
In: Balic, Heppel/Laird (by way of Adams) with no cash.

Alby

$210,000 in the bank thinking of getting rid of JOM and Pickett and getting in Hannebury and Fisher. Thoughts would be much appreciated thanks in advance.

Matt___a

Sounds good

pod

JOM is playing and has a B/E of 58, surely you jest

bamsko

Interested to understand Balic v Hardwick. People seem to prefer Balic – but why?

– Hardwick averages 9 pt more and has a lower BE (-49 v -39)
– Balic has DPP
– How about JS?

Tyruddanaut

Hey can you please tell me what JS is so I can u crests d this further
Otherwise you have a point

BradK

Whats the hype with buddy? He hasn't averaged over 100 since 2012. He's 30 years old and stats show he's on the way out. Likely to average 90-95 this year. I'd almost prefer keeping steele (current 87 average).

BradK

Also, for those picking him up because he has an 'easy' next five opponents…

I added up buddy's average for the past five games against syds next 5 teams (calt, bris, nth, stkida, hawks), and he averaged 104 for that time (not including his injury affected scores).

So he may have a purple patch and average around 104, but I think he will ave even lower. Plus, you'd be getting him as a keeper, not because he MAY score higher for five games.

I wont be touching him

Holty

Fair points. I picked him up because in the preseason he was in the best shape ive seen him for years. He looked fantastic and even now he still looks fit and i think will explode soon. If he continues on this form and when Sydney start winning, i would not be surprised if he averages 100+ for the rest of the season.

whatyasmokin

Agree completely. But when a player gets hyped in these comments sections you know what happens……..can't stop the train ie Matt crouch.

Jaxon

Completely agree with you. I wont be touching him. Well said!

KSinny

What do u guys think of a double downgrade of swallow to Baltic and Whe to Hardwick? Gives me some sweet cash and a couple weeks to let pendles and danger bottom out

Lachy

Macrae or Mummy/Martin?

Joe T

Im considering the same options, though I'd be picking Martin over Mummy

BradK

Depends on what rucks you've currently got. I dont trust Mumford's consistency, so i'd go Martin over him.

But Macrae might suit your team better. Can you list your rucks Lachy?

Lachy

My rucks are is the 'ol classic Nankilands duo.

Matt___a

Macrae

Sarge

A quick question for the community, wfycg uograde option do I bring in this week?

TMitch
Hannebery
Franklin
Parker

Cheers!

BradK

Probably Hanneberry from that lot

Matt___a

Mitchell

Ben

Hibberd from Melb, anyone? Im $4000 short of Shaw, but Hibberd looked great on the weekend

Finnius123

Wait a week!

pod

If you're upgrading a playing rookie why not hold, wait and see how Hibberd plays and in the process maybe make some coin. If Hibberd plays well trade him in, if he craps it, grab Shaw or someone else.

Ben

Marchbank + Butler –> McNiece + Nank
OR
Marchbank + Parfitt –> Balic + Fisher + Cash

Tyruddanaut

Too early for Mcneice

Harley

Greene or McRae ?

Probably need both at some stage but who right now do we thing?

BradK

Macrae

pod

MacRae just, because he's a dpp.

Pablo

Depends on who else is in your team to ensure bye coverage. PS I went Greene coz i already have 2 other WB players..

LoganJosh7

ahoy community need some help

best outs out of eddy, WHE and roughy in FWD and pickett, swallow in MID

best ins out of hardwick, balic in FWD and fisher/premium in MID

TheSingh2011

5 Rounds Down Scoring 2025 On Average Still 0 Points. Need Help Please
$17.4K in Bank, 27 Trades Left

DEF: T.ADAMS, R.LAIRD, J.JOHANNISEN, J.LLOYD, C.MARCHBANK, C.HAMPTON (Bench: N.NEWMAN, M.HIBBERD)

MID: P.DANGERFIELD, N.FYFE, D.HANNEBERY, D.BEAMS, J.WATSON, D.SWALLOW, B.PARFITT, S.POWELL-PEPPER (Bench: J.BARRETT, D.MYERS, H.BALLIC)

RUCK: T.GOLDSTEIN, A.SANDILANDS (Bench: B.PREUSS)

FWD: L.DAHLHAUS, N.RIEWOLDT, J.MACRAE, T.NANKERVIS, N.HROVAT, B.EDDY (Bench: J.PICKETT, T.SMITH)

LoganJosh7

make two forward trades for balic and hardwick

BradK

Sorry mate but this team is going to struggle

BradK

But swallow to fisher, then upgrade pickett to a premium if possible.
Fwd line will look pretty good after that.

Then get to work on the midfield next week by downgrading one of marchbank or hampton, then find the cash to get parfitt to a prem mid.

BradK

Keeping powell pepper a bit longer could be a good pod move for you. He's named as a follower and u need luck like that.

Your defence and fwds really are pretty good. Its mostly the midfield that is draining points

BradK

Could also use some more captain options, so make sure the mid you pick up is a pendles/rocky/sloane/bont type

TheSingh2011

SWALLOW to FISHER and trade out PICKETT gives me only $397k in Bank upgrade options???

TheSingh2011

Playing Ballic in Fwd line from MID Bench
Probably Trade B.EDDY/T.SMITH out for Hardwick in Fwd Line

Tyruddanaut

Can't help you mate…. it's just not as good as it could be because of your starting teams

FCAbel

Downgrade with a focus on upgrading to pendles in a week or two.

Bevo

Too many rooks in the mids. You've got trades. Need a risk or two. Punt hrovat, going nowhere, bring in black as a punt. Then upgrade swallow to ebert for pod and good value. Prob best value fwd this round in your price range. Look to trade watson up soon. Prob add 100 to your score this round.

Goaled Finger

Trying to decide if I downgrade Parfitt or Taranto. Both similarly priced, both with similar BEs, and both with the potential to give me a 75+ or dud me completely…which do I axe?

DefyingMadness

Laird or Franklin or another POD such as McGovern.
Also Balic or Hardwick

pod

Laird and Balic from that list

Borko

Need to upgrade a FWD this week.

Option One
SPP -> Fisher
Turner -> Macrae

Option Two
Pickett -> Fisher
Turner -> Gunston

Macrae is a def top 6 fwd this year but there is value in Gunston (I was looking at him all pre season).

Option One locks away a definite premo but may reduce cash generation. Option Two gives me maximum cash generation (although I think SPP will only go up by max of $50k by his bye if all goes well).

Thoughts?

Tyruddanaut

Gunston is a…. POD to say the least

Plodda

But if you were to say more about gunston?

Andy

Treloar, Danners or Titch?

Bitta

Hardwick or Balic? really need some wisdom here!

HarryO

balic for me this week. has the DPP and has been tearing up the WAFL. the kid can seriously play

Bitta

Cheers Harry!

Stav

Brought in Roberton a few weeks ago in DT as I didn't think he was SC friendly. May have to reassess that opinion. A very good POD by the looks of it.

Steve

Thoughts
Spp > fisher
Bowes > Balic
Leaves me $239.600 to upgrade Whe next week to Greene or Macrae

One Touch Wonder

Here it is ladies and gentlemen. Its the brilliant move that will save your sorry supercoach teams and win you the flag.

Just downgrade one of your unperforming mids, or add just 140k to upgrade swallow, and grab the legendary Brad crouch and watch as he becomes one of the best midfielders in the comp.

You heard it here first community!!

This truly is an amazing touch. You can all thank me later.

Ben

Really??

The Ranger

Ah One Touch, I was wondering when you'd be making your first move.
I like it mate, you might be onto something..

whatyasmokin

The legendary Brad Crouch haha

neil Demons Delight

brad or matt took a while but good to c.u.
