SuperCoach RD18: LekDog’s Cheat Sheet

Published by Lekdog on

LekdogsCheatSheet

G’day Community

..and welcome to a Cheat Sheet full of broken fingers and cheap premiums.

As I sit here looking at my Supercoach team I can’t shake a deep feeling of dread and fear, it could be the big scary looking spider sitting on my window in front of me but I think the more realistic answer is the question marks above Scott Pendlebury and Patrick Dangerfield.

Luckily we’ll know what’s happening with Dangerfield come Friday night (which by the way if he misses I’ll be trading him) but what to do with Scott Pendlebury is less clear. Personally i don’t care if they say he’ll be back next week, you don’t get your finger operated on and come back an play well. Particularly if you weren’t playing well before the surgery. My advice is to trade him and trade him to a point of difference.

JOCK, HIGGO AND CROUCHING BACK TOGETHER IN THIS WEEK’S PODCAST. LISTEN HERE

Strangely enough, at Round 18 we actually have a number of rookie option to pick up. If you need some cash (and have some trades) then any of the rookies in the Cheat Sheet have value.

Beyond some under-performing premos and the whole Danger/Pendles thing we don’t actually have too much to worry about this week…it must have been the spider which i can no longer find that was making me feel afraid…so hope for the best, prepare for the worst and hold as many trades as you can community. Best of luck this week.

Hmmm great work Lek!
Making me think to get Ebert instead of Jelwood only for the POD

Shake n bake

Eberts two low scores was when He was made to tag. Port didn't do to well in those games. Hickley has since released him from those duties.

DacZawson

With a top 4 spot up for grabs I think this week is my time to grab the Little Master for the final time after years of great Supercoach service.

While this may be a heart over head decision, imagine the scenes if he could put in a classic Gary stretch of 130+ for the next few weeks.

While I may say this is the final time, I can never rule the great man out completely, as he's shown time and time again that he isn't finished when everyone else thinks he's past it.

Welcome Gary.

Tommo09

I really want him too but he is just too much for me to be able to get him

James T

Cheers Lek! Great cheat sheet as always! Going Pendles to Jelwood this week and Newman to Adams which gives me the funds next week to go Greenwood to any midfielder about $570k or less. Already have Danger, Titch, Merrett, JPK, Fyfe, Wines and soon to be Jelwood. Any suggestions? 🙂

Jason

dusty will be cheaper than 570k next week

Riot act

Nice work lekdog! Your cheat sheet just gives me the reassurance that Newman to Adams and rockliff to Cotchin is where I'm headed. It will leave me with 4 trades. Just had a gut full of rockliff and now just having some fun with trades (as higgo said)since I'm cooked in most leagues! Would have liked Hurley but fell short by $1K.

Whatyasmokin

I would avoid Cotchin, Tiges haven't looked that flash and they have a really tough run home I reckon.

BlueNath

I'm not sure the tigers have that hard of a draw… 4 bottom 8 sides and Cats and GWS this weekend. Cotch and the Tigers will finish the year strong IMO. He is very underrated. I'm glad Lek has highlighted him

Whatyasmokin

Hawks, Geelong, GWS, GCS in metricon with a rested god, Freo in perth with a rejuvinated Fyfe, Saints round 23 which could be very important to me that is a very tough run home.

Brenton

Thinking of going Newman to taylor Adams and pendles to jelwood this week. That leaves me with 3 trades. Is that enough or should I keep with the 5 trades I have now

jez_m

Three should be enough, but hold those trades for injuries.

Whatyasmokin

Could give Newman another run or use someone like Witherden in D6 to save a trade. I'd be very tempted to pull the Pendles to Selwood trade, probably gonna do it myself I don't trust these optimistic injury returns this year followed by many extra weeks. I haven't fallen for it yet and I'm not about too. One week is crap I reckon, surely two minimum.

Doc

Lads, need some help.

Down to 2 trades and 94k

Can't miss the finals in my cash league but a win would cement top 2.

At full premo with decent cover on al lines. but have Pendles. Move him on for dusty (or someone else) or sit tight.

Can cover Pendles +/- Danger with Jake Lloyd and Greenwood if needed.

Rick Grimes

Wouldn't trade with that cover. Rather finish top 4 with 2 trades in hand.

Whatyasmokin

You don't have the trades and as you are in a good spot hold for sure.

Defying_Madness

Great article as usual Lekdog, we are hitting the pointy end of the season and I am thinking of using my slim trades to try and push my rank as far as possible. Currently ranked at 846, with 5 trades and $228,600 in the bank. Any advice/ critiques regarding my team are welcome.

Here is my team:

Doc, Laird, Adams,
Rance, Hibberd, Lloyd
(Schaz, Ryan)

Danger, Titch, Zerret, JPK,
Pendles, Hanners, Treloar, Greenwood
(Witherden, Bolton, Junker)

Kreuzer, Gawn (Strn)

Macrae, Yeo, Buddy
Dahl, Nank, Heeney
(Parsons, Eddy)

Parsons is most likely going to a midfield premo and I think I want to trade Pendles out, however may hold if Greenwood scores well on the Friday. Thinking of giving Gawn another week and if he doesn't perform I will likely move him onto Mumford.

Thanks for your time community

Derek

In addition to Greenwood, you have Parsons and Ryan who could cover for Pendles. Those 3 all play before Pendles, put them all on bench with E and see if one of the could snag a score, you never know.

Derek

If Ryan does well, swing Junker/Adams.

If Parsons does well, swing Bolton/Yeo.

Defying_Madness

I am probably trading Parsons to Jelwood though for my last midfield spot. I guess I could trade him to Ebert instead. Will put the emergency on Ryan and Greenwood to see how they score before deciding on Pendles.

Tim

Selwood or Merrett? Price irrelevant

B T

Selwood, because the extra cash will be relevant further down the track.

Whatyasmokin

Should score similarly so Selwood.

Leeds17

Merrett will finsh the season stronger I think

Pherso

Mmmm Sloane (far out man) back to Fyfe and Newman to Hurley, 7 trades left, cheers gents (and ladies)

Whatyasmokin

Can't say anything bad about the trades and you have enough so………

NickSC

Trading Pendles to Jelwood and Greenwood to Heeney and the gets me to pretty much full promo with Nank and T.Lynch (GCS) still. Thinking of trading Bolton in the mid, swing Witherden into mid and get in a mid-def player to swing with Witherden as back up for mids.

Rivo

Just 5 trades and $29k. "Pain in the guts"…

D: Doc, Simpson, Laird, Rance, Hibberd, Shaw (Ryan, Scharenberg);
M: Danger, M.Crouch, JPK, Treloar, Pendles, Hanners, Sloane, Greenwood (Witherden, Mountford, Cousins);
R: Gawn, Martin (Strnadica);
F: Ryder, Heeney, Franklin, Dahl, Nank, Lynch (GC) (Bolton, Eddy).

Option 1: Pendles to Jelwood;
Option 2: Pendles & Sloane to Jelwood & Bont;
Option 2: Nank to Jelwood, Greenwood to F6, lose dpp swing but hold Pendles.

Help please!

Whatyasmokin

Option 1.

Rivo

Thanks Whatya.
Been a tough season. Knowing my luck Pendles comes back in 2 weeks and Jelwood gets knocked out again.

ASSURED

Quit Worrying about Danger the Guy is as tough as nails expect him to play this week. Did anyone watch the video on the Geelong website. He walked into the press conference moaning and Groaning with a bandage on his head, a sling, crutches and a moon boot lol. By the end of the interview he left with just a moonboot. Showing how quick he heals himself and made his injury into a big joke. Walking out of the club carry a heavy duffle bag on the side he was wearing the moonboot and walking normally. He wants everyone to think he is badly injured, so when he does play the media can say 'DANGER KICK 8 STRAIT WITH ONE LEG'

Flippacoin

HELP please!!!

Wingard, Buddy or Lambert

Why not Flippacoin

Buddy

Dice

Bloody

Whatyasmokin

Buddy is in one third of teams, not necessarily a bad thing but it could pay off to get Wingard.

B T

Yeah, I agree with the rest. Go Buddy. He's in great scoring form as of late.

Northerner

Wingard for mine

Derek

I have Buddy already and I'm getting Chad this week

Jim_bob321

Danger on the flight to Adelaide

INPieman

Probably flying the plane

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Not with those injuries
Looked really bad on Monday at the pressers!
Classic by Danger
Love it. Finally somone who can take the p1ss

Dice

One trade left with all bench players playing except for R3 Preuss. All premium except for Nank @ R2 and Greenwood @ F6. Do I trade out Greenwood for heeney/wingard or gawn or hold onto my trades. Really wanna get heeney for Greenwood and hope preuss starts getting games soon for ruck cover it a nank downside.
2479 last week.
Help I'm stuffed

INPieman

Save your last trade for a season ending injury

Jake.B

Newman I'm upgrading to Docherty next week. Have the funds to do It after doing ym two trades this week. Only have Greenwood to upgrade which I may not have the funds to do but wiill have to try do over the next week or so. I still think Greenwood could be a hold, his scoring compared to Time on ground is very very solid.

Milton_

Greenwood to either Buddy, Heeney or Wingard?
Or maybe Someone else?

Jack

Heeney is the safest option

Derek

Worried Heeney will get rested. Have heard he is not over his glandular fever and has been missing a few training.

Whatyasmokin

Wingard for a POD. Decent run home too. Agree with Jack though.

Gazza R

Hi community I have six trades left current rank 460 am yet to lose a game in my work league so will finish top in that. Should I trade Pendles and Newman to Merrett and Cotchin and swing Witherburn to defence he should score similar to Newman but really strengthen mids scoring power and hopefully give me a chance to push higher in ranks and this would put Priddis on mid bench. Current team Def Doc, Hurley, Laird, Shaw, M.Hibbard. Newman- Ryan, Junker Mids Danger, TMitch, Pendles, Zorko, Oliver, Trelor, Fyfee, Priddis,- Witherden, Miles Bolton Rucks Kruezer, Grundy,- Stradica Forw Macrae, Buddy, Dalhouse, Winggaurd, NRoo, Heeney, -Greenwood, Deluca-Cardillo Any other suggestions appreciated?

Whatyasmokin

I like the idea of trading Newman before he bleeds and moving Witherden, I'm not convinced by Cotchin, the tigers and their run home though.

Dayne Oh

Beams man….Beams so cheap

Whatyasmokin

Missed three games this season due to injury.

Also a 58, 66, 66 and a 12.

Cheap for a reason.

Jimmy

Ebert does look amazing at his price. Never even thought of him. What happened in round 15 and 16? Did he get a run with role by any chance? It does concern me slightly. Or should I go straight to the Bont?

Billioux

Yep he was tagging for some reason those 2 weeks.He has been gold for me.

Jimmy

So there's a chance it could happen again

Shake n bake

Port lost those game he tagged in. Port are better when hes not tagging!! Don't think Hinkley will go there again.

Jake.B

Don't get sucked into ebert.

Dirty Dan

Magnificent Community!!!

What to do first?

Turn Newman into Hurley

or…. OR……

Greenwood Into Wingard

BTW best bunch of blokes on the Net with AFL knowledge

Thanks in Advance!

Burns.

Hurley

Derek

Hurley.

McVeigh has taken Newman role. He won't score well. Newman might even get dropped.

B T

Hurley

Dirty Dan

Thank you indeed 🙂

Crippa

I usually think for myself guys but It's doing my head in.
Jpk or Neal this week to have decent cover for danger or dusty next week?
Please help….

BlueNath

Get Dusty next week

Crippa

Yea so do I lek, but for some strange reason I keep hitting the reverse trade button. Never have I been so hesitant on committing

Jock

Brilliant stuff SC

Jim

Seriously considering Justin Westhoff

Derek

Chad and Ryder have higher ceiling. The Hoff is the ultimate POD. Bit expensive though.

Whatyasmokin

Do it, will be that player nobody has.

Creek465

What to do with sloane fellas?

Northerner

Unless you've got 5+ trades I'd hold and back him in. Except if you need to trade to say Dusty (or Selwood if you don't have him) to win to make finals or top 4, but do that during the weekend as late as possible and only if you need to.

Good luck.

Creek465

Thanks northerner

Derek

I don't think he is injured. He will come good, too good a player not to.

ASSURED

Sloane will get Tagged the crap out of this next game if He Plays. Trade

Troy

Please help

6 trades left with 180 k in the bank

Option 1 Newman to Greene via dpp and pendles to merret

Or

Option 2 Newman to Kreuzer putting nank to fwd and leave pendles for loophole

P.Cripps

1

P.Cripps

I hope Pendlebury is out for the season, get his priorities right for next year

Daniel Z

Or join you for a pint maybe?

Creek465

Newman to roberton
Or
Greenwood to macrae

Troy

macrae 100%

Creek465

Sorry mis calculated, should i trade newman to macrae, via mcinnes and play ryan on field,?

B T

If you can avoid having Ryan on field you should.

Oscars Blues

Looking for some good mids 510 and under, Selwood is an obvious choice but wondering if there were any others that I missed. Don't really like Cotchin or Ebert

Oscars Blues

cheers for the help boys

TRIGGA_HAPPY

The bin is over flowing
Selwood
Fyfe
Treloar
wines
Heeney
Gray
Mitchell
Sloane
Hannas
rocky
Adams
Mundy
Scully
beams

Just off the top of my head
Premo smorgasbord.

GloryDays90

Why not? They are both quite consistant and have the ability to bang out big scores also.

Ryan

Is it stupid of me with 4 trades left and 30k in the bank to go Greenwood to Wingard (or Patton, Heeney, any other fwd) and Melican to Nyhuis? This moves Higgins to F7. Forward line at the moment is: Macrae, Yeo, Dahl, Westhoff, Higgins, Nank BENCH: Greenwood, Eddy

I have Witherden in the mids and Shaz in the backline for cover if need be. If i do these trades i will be loopholing Higgins and either Nank or Westhoff. Will this give me a chance to move up in the rankings? (currently ranked 4613 in my first season) Or am i delusional?

Thanks Fellas

Russty_

Hey Ryan, I wouldn't worry about moving up the rankings so much now as getting into your league finals and having trades to use in the finals..trades are pure gold in your finals, especially if your opponent has none left.

JohndJames

With only 4 trades left,like me,only use them for injuries.

DacZawson

Don't bother with Nyhuis and get in a 102k def-mid dpp player so Witherden can cover in the backline as well.

Defying_Madness

Got $1020300 to spend on 2 midfielders by trading Parsons and Pendles out.
Who do the community think are the 2 best options? Have been thinking about Selwood, Ebert and Fyfe
My current midfielders are Danger, Titch, Zerret, JPK, Hanners and Treloar.

Russty_

Hey DM, Selwood and either of the other 2, you can't go wrong.

Whatyasmokin

Selwood and Fyfe.

inNout

What is going on with harbrow for the last 2 weeks ? Hold or trade?

Russty_

He's just reverted back to his usual self..he's not a premo and never has been. Trade for a real premo.

Billioux

correct.

garfield_da_cat

Looking to get rid of Nic Newman and either trade in Hibberd (melb) or Roberton. Who would be the better option out of those two and why?

Ahmad Rubas

i think Robertson is the better choice averaging higher score but only if u don't have the likes of doc laird Adams hurley

garfield_da_cat

i already have doc, laird, adams, hurley, lloyd, ryan and witherdin

Ahmad Rubas

Terrific defence get Robertson to make it even more stacked.

What does the rest of ur team look like?

garfield_da_cat

Backs: Laird, Hurley, Adams, Docherty, Lloyd, Newman – bench Ryan and Witherdin
Mids: Danger, TMitchel, Zerret, Zorko, Neale, Pendles, Sloane, Fyfe – bench Greenwood, D Lloyd and Cousins
Rucks: Witts, Grundy – bench Strndika
Fwds: Macrae, Yeo, Franklin, Dahlhaus, J Cameron,
Houston – bench Parsons and T Smith

Daniel Z

Upgrade your forward line first; I'd wager Newman would outscore Houston.

garfield_da_cat

cheers although not many good forward options who are consistant and high scoring this year

Derek

Melbourne have the better draw. especially the last 3 weeks (finals) they have saints, Lions & Collingwood all at the MCG.

Saints have some tough games, none more than the next two, Swans and Port both away. Usually that might mean good points for defenders, but both port and Swans put alot of forward pressure on the defenders, unlike GWS, north, lions type teams

Whatyasmokin

Also for one reason or another roberton's scoring has dipped. Not sure if its a role thing cos i havent looked at the stats.

Russty_

I'd go Hibberd…his 3 round average is 20 above Roberton's

Whatyasmokin

Spot on

Tommo09

How long is Pendles out for?
I have seen everything from a week to the season

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Yep that about sums it up
Varies and no one really knows.
If you believe the pies may? return as early as next week

GloryDays90

I think the real question is will he be any good when he returns. He will be very timid with a hand that is still recovering. My suggestion get rid of him, his supercoach days are starting to go down hill.

swannation

HI Guys,
Doc, Adams, Laird, Simmo, Rance, LLoyd (Neilson, Scharenberg)
Danger, Dusty, Zerrett, Bont, Treloar, Hanners, Pendles, Selwood. (Witherden, Berry, Cousins)
Gawn, Grundy (Strn)
Macrea, Yeo, Dahl, Buddy, Greene, Nank (parsons, Eddy)

Do i get in Heeney or Hurley??
5 trades LEFT

Dave

Doc, Adams, Laird, Shaw, Hibberd, Witherden (Ryan, Mcinnes)

Danger, Merrett, Tmitch, Treloar, Rockilff, Selwood, neale, Bont (wingard, mountford, cousins)

Martin, Goldy,

Heeney, Yeo, dahlhouse, nank, fnklin, macrae (pickett, eddy)

1 trade left. Have wingard (or dahlhouse etc) as fwd/mid cover. Ranked in 600. Have i got a shot?

Derek

i'm impressed that you have Wingard on your midfield bench, especially as he is only listed as a Forward.

Dave

Ahh sorry mate. I was comfused because i brought wingard in this week to free up a mid/fwd as a loophole.

Wingard is up fwd. Dahlhouse is the extra mid at the moment, but will be able to use either macrae, yeo, or dahl as the extra swing/loop (dont trust rocky or even dahlhouse on recent form).

Any comments on my team please?

Dave

I also understand that Witherden in a risk as d6, but if loopholed with Ryan I'm confident i can get a good score from them for the remaining games

Whatyasmokin

Your team has no depth your benches are horrible you wont make it.

Russty_

Agree, with 6 weeks to go and one trade…you're toast…the way this year's gone.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Nice team Dave you have done well to get to your rank.
IMHO I can't see you moving up too much further due to the simple fact this team has 90% of the players as the teams above so if you were to move up.it is your pods which would have to propel you forward.
Need to play winguard – nice pod at the moment
Hope rocky goes bang.
Probably 1 short in Def as maj of teams at pointy end brought in hurley recently but withering definitely getting the job done.

Dave

Yeah I'm pretty much cooked this year sadly. Would be happy to move up a little bit.
Rocky has been terrible. I watch every lions match and I'd really like to punch the useless, slow, unmotivated &/*#.
Anyway thanks for the reply. All the best to the teams out there with a chance, especially Jock followers

Jambo

Pendles, Pendles, Pendles…when I told ya to pull your finger out…I didn’t mean literally… (Facepalm)

Joe T

Cheers Lek, I'm considering moving Pendles on now. His poor form plus not knowing how he'll come back from injury places too much doubt.

I've got 4 trades atm but only want to use one to swap out Pendles. Is it worth holding with that few trades or should I swap him for another premo? Can't afford Mitchell (only have $587k) so in a midfield with Danger, Zerrett, Jelwood, Treloar, Hanners, Fyfe and Rocky, is Neale the best option or is there any value picks out there?

Joe T

Cheers lads, going down the Neale direction. I looked at Bont and Ebert too but Bont's ownership is too high and his output will be similar to Neale. Ebert is mighty tempting but I need a solid captaincy choice with the doubts around Danger/Pendles etc so think it's better to get a reliable player in.

Whatyasmokin

The Bont will come good and is cheap.

King

Lachine Neale or selwood

neil Demons Delight

Wouldn't surprise me if Shake n Bake does his little trick with Danger if he is out.He needs a win in TRIGGS to make the finals.but so does his opponent me…Waste of two trades or not I don't know but are you game Shake

TRIGGA_HAPPY

If danger is out I can see him shakin it.
How great is the competition in the happy place?
If yeo played last week would have been safely ensconced in top 4 now hanging on by my toenails to 7th!
Bloody useless parson poo! Only needed a 40 from you!
But must move on.
Just no pushovers in the happy place.
right down to last place cant pencil in an easy win.
Got hawk this week. Just gotta hope your pods get the job done.
Love it.

INPieman

I see Trig I'm in the Tigers spot of 9th & matched up against Jock this week. Promises to be a belter

TRIGGA_HAPPY

That's what I mean.
With you, jock, shake and Neil outside the 8 it's gonna be game on.
2 weeks to go till finals.
Fierce, fierce stuff in the happy place.

neil Demons Delight

sorry pies cheering for Jock and me.If Shake and you lose could jump in but regardless these coaches are something else . Good luck to though to both INPieman and Shake nBake

The Ranger

Hasn't he already done one Fake already?
Surely no man can pull off a Double Shake'n'Bake Fake?!!

Shake n bake

Danger will definitely go if he doesn't get up!! Will just have to wait and see. Quietly hope he doesn't but think he might.

Simo

Upgrade Tom Lynch to West Coast Kennedy or to Mumford via swinging Ryder from Ruc to Fwd? Cheers

Dave

Mumford sounds good – he will outscore most fwds. Ryder needs to be fwd

Derek

As mentioned in the casting of the Pod. Mummy's opponents look weak

Whatyasmokin

Yep swing ryder for sure, ruck backup is essential for example this week goldy is dropped nank will save me a trade.

inNout

trade or hold billings ?

Spider

I'm crawling up behind you Lek…

The Ranger

Uh oh. Pendles a likely out and Rocky is makin' eyes at me again.
I can already see whats going to happen.
I'm going to spend the next 48hrs muttering must not trade in Rocky, must not trade in Rocky, must not trade in Rocky under my breath and then I'm gonna trade him in anyway and then hes gonna bust a shoulder and be out for the rest of the season.

Ja191

pendles IS out

Dave

He's a slow piece of *$&. stay far away

INPieman

Well Ranger if I can I'm putting Rocky on the bench this week for a rookie. That's how bad he is. He's too cheap to upgrade

Defying_Madness

He does play Carlton, maybe they can play him back into form

The Ranger

Every year I say I'm not gonna risk him and every year I do…its kinda traditional now.
Imagine if he comes good tho…

Derek

Pendles is out and Rocky has busted his shoulder.

The Ranger

Where are you getting that he's busted his shoulder?

Rick Grimes

He's playing with a busted shoulder, which is why he's [email protected]

The Ranger

So when it's fixed he'll be back to averaging 120 then?
Anyone know how he's travelling, can't find anything online.

Cogla13

I hope people are trading Rocky out so he can start averaging 150 until the end of the season.

Shake n bake

Beams is a better option.

Whatyasmokin

Beams is an absolute uber premo, just his body holds him back such a pity.

The Ranger

You could say the same for Rocky couldn't you?
Beams looked very underdone last week.

Goat

Franklin or Heeney?

Big G

Franklin more likely to get big scores, but then more likely to put in a shocker.

Derek

I read that Heeney is still affected by Gladular fever and misses a few training sessions as a result. High chance they will give him a rest.

Swans next 7 games don't have too many big key defender types. Buddy can get a lot of attention and attract opponents big defenders. Saints, hawks, freo, Carlton don't have a good match up with Buddy, think he will have a good finish

Goat

Thanks Community – and Derek for the in depth analysis – very useful.

pureozzi

Does anyone know how the scoring works yet?? I have both Cotchin and Z.Merrett. In round 17 Merrett had 5 more kicks, 4 more handballs,1 more mark, 4 more tackles, 3 more clearances and the same number of contested disposals as Cotchin. Merrett went at 70% efficiency as opposed to Cotchin's 64%. Yet Cotchin scored 123 and Z.Merrett 120…….anybody???

Derek

Have a closer look. Cotchin 1 goal and 6 goal assists. Merrett 0 goals and 0 goal assists…… its good to get the pill 37 times, but you need to hit the scoreboard.

pureozzi

thanks for answering the question…so obviously goal assists must be worth truckloads because on base KHMT stats Merrett would be +43 as well as 3 more clearances and better efficiency. a goal is worth 6 so goal assists must be worth 10 or thereabouts

Russty_

A goal is worth 8 and I think an assist is worth 3 or 4….

Whatyasmokin

Its a complex system kicks dont all score the same, theres variables on the distance of the kick, whether it was to a contest, where it was done on the ground, also if it was backwards.

Ie a defender kicking it back/across the ground to an open player is not worth as much as a kick inside 50 that hits its target.

Looking at the basic stats can give us an indication of scoring, but in the end supercoach is extremely different to fantasy and goes into detail on how valuable each act is.

frogger

Always have to factor in that the total is normed to 3,300. Depending on the absolute scores, different scale will be applied. Zerrett also seemed to pick up more uncontested disposals iirc.Then there's pressure acts etc.
Haven't looked at their numbers in detail, but often enough factoring in that stuff explains a fair bit of the perceived discrepancy.

FEARTHEBEARD

Dusty or Zerrett ?

P.Cripps

DUSTIN MARTIN

oscar

how long is peddles out for?

SmoothCriminals

At least 1 but it could drag on for weeks. If you have trades use them

P.Cripps

is Selwood best mid under 520k?

Rick Grimes

With his pedigree and form this year, yes.
