SuperCoach RD22: LekDog’s Cheat Sheet

Published by Lekdog on

CheatSheet Round22

G’day Community,

Welcome to a daily fantasy inspired Cheat Sheet. The long for season is cooked for some.. but the magic of Draftstars and CoachKings gives us all a clean fantasy slate every week.

The most important part of this week’s cheat sheet is the black mark of shame I’ve placed on Gary Ablett. I love him and he’s the best player I’ve ever seen, we can never pick him in long form fantasy again. It’s just too painful.

On the flipside, I am so damn excited to play Draftstars and CoachKings this weekend and moving into the future. I can pick Gary and probably not be dissapointed in these formats, that my friends is something special.

Maybe I’m on a high from coming 20th in the graduates competition over the weekend. I must say that given the rank of Jock, Higgo and myself I’ll be putting together an investigatory panel headed by Patch to ensure that nothing suss went down over the weekend.

In terms of Supercoach, we can talk in the comments and on Twitter because there is just no way any of you have trades left.

Love you all, Lekdog.

As a Geelong supporter I feel with every week that Gaz continues to miss, the more his value falls and the more likely the Suns will give him up

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Conspiracy by God.

INPieman

Gary has put his house up for sale. That's a trade request if I've ever seen one

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Surely the for sale sign reads:

"House of God".

Choppers

His house has been on the market since January……with no buyers….maybe he'll drop the price, maybe not, as money is very important to him it appears

INPieman

The AFL should slap the for sale on Metricon & send the Suns to Tassie

Swans2012

Thayd have to change there name to "the clouds" though wouldn't they?

Chompy

Clearly written by someone who hasn't spent time in Tassie or is conveniently ignoring that Melbourne is cloudier.

Swans2012

Clearly written by someone a bit sensitive about Tassie, I love the joint personally but you can't dispute its renown for a cloudier climate than the Gold Coast.

Stirlsy

Yep just seen suns injury list.
Name Reason
Barlow Leg
May hip
Ablett Removalist coming

INPieman

Haha! Love it Stirlsy

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Lek would advise against picking up abs this week in any formst as he is Mia again.
It is good though that u can pick him in the other formats when he plays and know he is not going to ruin your side as he usually scores well when on the park.

You guys are in that space all the time. Had to crack it for a top finish. Was inevitable.

Paul

Last trade left, axe Harbrow for Adams or Hurley? My opponent has neither.

SC_Kev7

Adams

redherringfc

Hurley is out, so obviously Adams.

Corey

Adams

SmoothCriminals

Community, I need your help! I have to sack either Gazbot or Neale this week. I have cash so I can afford anyone, but I'm wondering out of these two, who would be most likely to come back next week and help me win a grand final?

SC_Kev7

Give Gaz the flick. R23 the Suns travel to Adelaide. Gary doesn't do travel

The Ranger

Couldn't agree more with Ablett getting the dreaded black rectangle.
He's done a Rocky on me this year.

Still ,we should all take a little time out to acknowledge the service he's given us over the years.
He wasn't called the Little Master for no reason, he really was an astonishingly consistent player in his prime.

Thanks for the memories Gazza.

INPieman

Never thought I'd see a better player than his dad. I think he's drawn level with the man they called God

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Agree.

Fairly decent gene pool there though pool must have been drained by the time Nath came along.

Stirlsy

Nath just didn't have the heart for the game, I saw a lot of the old man play used to go to games just to watch him in his hayday, sorry but still the old man in front for mine, probably because iv seen him live a lot more then Gaz live think iv only seen him 3 times.

BrownlowBoy

Did you watch Nathan? Kid was oozing with talent. He didn't want it enough to give it a decent crack. He was practically forced into the Falcons team.

Stirlsy

Not live but yep like i said didn't have the heart for the game or didn't want it same thing.

neil Demons Delight

trig /pies sorry disagree old mans better in fact best I have seen

Russty_

Gazza junior, a true champ of the game and most dominant Supercoach scorer for a heck of a lot of years, he will be missed.

Swans2012

Ok so as a cheap left field Selwood replacement, I'm considering n jones, was averaging 105 to round 12, injured 60 in 13, came back from injury with a 57 ( did have 29 disposals though) and a 128 last week. Here's where it gets tasty though, brissy this week and Collingwood next……I can see a pair of 120's as he turns back the clock in a team looking to prove there finals worth….. it's down to him, Gibbs,Prestia or rocky…..

SC_Kev7

A 57 from 29d makes me nervous, Swans! Prestia has his tail up, decent pod in your finals

Swans2012

Yeah I hear you, but likewise Prestias 3 (or 4) 100's from 20 games makes me even more nervous! I think it was 8 100's and 2 90's from 14 for jones, only one other poor score when has had 23 or more posies. At the end of the day if I wasn't cash and trade poor I'd be considering neither!

SC_Kev7

Haha, yeah, desperate times and all that. You're definitely right, Jones never really been on my radar as an option, but should get the job done for you over the next 2 weeks

Daniel Z

Who was the first black rectangle?

The Ranger

Heater

Daniel Z

That's a fair call.

Lek, I know you're a massive Blues supporter – what do you reckon they'll try to do in the off-season to end this (seemingly interminable) rebuild?

Stirlsy

Great work Lekdog and thx for yr inputs throughout the year.

Stirlsy

Yes Lek Swab both Higgo and Jock there form wasn't that good before last week.

Mike

Have 2 trades left and will need to use them this week, any thoughts is massively appreciated…

1. Jelwood > Beams
2. Neale > J.Kelly

ORRRRR

1. Jelwood > Rocky
2. Neale > M.Crouch

Cheers community.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

1

Mike

Thanks TRIGGA appreciate it!!!

Big G

even though he has played well the last 2 weeks, I still don't trust Rocky.

Whatyasmokin

Number two. Crouch in stellar form and in only 5% of teams. Rocky capable of going huge too. Risk it for the biscuit.

redherringfc

Good trades either way.

I've held Rocky throughout and don't have the other 3 so go with the 1st option.

TOPHAWK1

2 for me.

Rocky is coming good and has a huge ceiling.

Matt Crouch is in surreal form. At home this week and low ownership.

If you need big points to catch up in rank, or get through tough prelims where you feel a bit "monstered" then that is my preferred option. Option one is the "play safe" option.

Good luck mate.

Help

Need some help guys – last trade

Neale out for:

Beams, Parker, Treloar or Hurley

SC_Kev7

Beams has a soft fortnight ahead. I'd take Parker though

Big G

Even though Hurley is pretty consistent, generally speaking midfielders are more reliable. Of the four, Beams most likely to go big, but then again playing for Brisbane also most likely to have a stinker. Sometimes I simply go for whoever has the best average for the year.

Whatyasmokin

Beams.

josh1010101

Any thoughts on Stephen Coniglio as a POD?

DamTreloar

I've been really keen to bring him in as well..I really like him as a POD

Stirlsy

Really like this guy, but has Cats down there last rnd, should tonne up this week its the week after that might be the problem.

DamTreloar

My backline is Adams Hibberd Shaw Laird Doc and Hurley..I am full premo,although I have Rocky in mids as well..only have 2 trades left..should I use both trades to upgrade Heater and Rocky,or just Shaw..and who to…I've been thinking about McVeigh

SC_Kev7

Suss out your opponent DT and see how you stack up. Would hate to be hit by injuries/resting next week and you've traded when you didn't need to

SCamatuer89

Love your work as always Lek!

Big decision for me coming up this week. If Greenwood fails as loophole emergency on Friday night who do I replace Tom Lynch with.

I have $463,100 to spend and already have Yeo, Dahl and Buddy..

Daniher, I. Smith, Steele, Higgins…the list could go on and on!

Any help would be appreciated.

Tyruddanaut

Is Curnow available? He might be good this week but 50/50 against Sydney
Steele has the best run home so go for him

redherringfc

Daniher has GC and Freo to finish.

As long as I'm not playing you, this is who you should get.

Whatyasmokin

Don't mind that option for a POD.

FCAbel

Bennell

Big G

I have 2 trades left and J selwood and lachie Neale still in my team. Myers as my bench coverage.

Would you

a) Simply trade out selwood and Neale and leave the Nank in the ruck position. My opponent has Kreuzer OR
b) Trade out Selwood and the Nank for Kreuzer leaving Myers as the cover for Neale for the week.

I only considered Option b because I am worried Kreuzer will go big and Myers can scrap enough points for the week leaving me with the option to play Neale in GF week if he plays next week. Big decision.

Whatyasmokin

Nank can potentially* score decent, whereas Myers can't.

If Neale doesn't come back you are stuck with Myers for the last two games.

I'd trade Jelwood and Neale, unless it's highly likely Neale is back next week but just didn't pass fitness test this week or something.

edit – Looking at above information…..neale is done get rid of him and Jelwood.

*I hereby declare I will not take responsibility for Nank scoring badly, nor does this comment, or any other comments by myself represent Jock Reynolds or his affiliates 🙂

James

3 trades, $74k left. Grundy for Kruezer or Ryder? If I go Ryder then I can upgrade Selwood to anyone up to $509k. If I go Kruezer then I can upgrade Selwood to anyone up to $490k. It would have to be out of Sloane, Gray, Ebert or Hannebery.

Whatyasmokin

Kreuz and Hannebery

JoSe

MICHAEL HURLEY OUT!!!! SUPERCOACH SIGNIFICANT http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-08-17/bombers-blo

INPieman

He's helping Gary move house

Shake n bake

Hurley out calf compaint.

HarryO

there's a whisper bennell is named for freo… is it worth bringing him in for either jelwood or T J Lynch??

Whatyasmokin

A whisper? It's on the AFL official website team announcement 🙂

Russty_

A very loud confirming whisper, but shhh it's a secret lol

Stirlsy

Defo playing its been out all week he was here in WA but no you will be very disappointed if you pic him up.
Has played 4 games for peel and really did sfa in 3 of them then a bye and had 12 disposals and a couple of goals out the back on weekend, wait till next year be interesting how they price him for next year.

Shake n bake

Witherden back in.

Stirlsy

Not yet but im on the way to church to pray….. not sure how you do that tho
I really need him or its all over for me.

Trev

Has anyone won a preliminary final with a dirty donut? !??! My boy hurls could and most likely will cost me the win☹️ Not his fault though I should have saved trades!!! Arrrrrrghhhhh!!!

Whatyasmokin

probably……in a rubbish league?

Swans2012

Just need it all to come together Trev, don't lose hope…..yet

Russty_

Yeah Trev, agree with Swans…it only takes a few of his to have shockers and a few of yours to exceed expectations and you could get over the line.

John

Kreuzer or Ryder

Defying_Madness

Kreuzer

Whatyasmokin

Kruez

Dave

Field Scharenberg or Harbrow?

Joshua

1 trade and 8k
DEF: Adams, Docherty, Laird, Hibberd, Shaw, Scharenberg (Lloyd, Joel Smith)

MID: Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Bontompelli, Hannebery, Witherden, Neale (Callum Brown, Hibberd, Cousins)

FWD: Macrae, Yeo, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Greene, Greenwood (Lynch GC, Eddy)

Should I
1: trade Neale to Beams
or
2: trade Lynch to Rockliff allowing me to use Callum Brown as cover in forward (only position I don't have cover) and keep Neale on the bench hoping he plays in round 23?

Whatyasmokin

Neale won't play I imagine.

Russty_

Trade Neale to the best guy you can afford with the best 3 round average.

Chompy

In line for my best sc finish somewhere in top 1000, playing brumbyfc in my league this week to reach the gf, I've been struck down with a bad case of analysis paralysis. I will be farewelling jelwood with my last trade and… rocky or Gibbs? Gibbs is the value safer option arguably… but…The Pig! Two rounds left for him to show contact value and if one squints enough looking through the cracked misshapen rose colored fun house window of doom he kinda might just win a lucky owner some league silverware and a higher finish placing! Or completely spud it and screw the end of my season right royally using a squid jig. So! Thoughts, votes? The Pig or the man with the my little pony tail, Gibbo?

Whatyasmokin

Gibbs = Manbun.

Rocky for sure.

Swans2012

I'm struggling with the same call chompy, I reckon it's n jones, Prestia or rocky for me, I might end up @ rocky, but thinking n jones at the moment.

Jimmy

Who to trade for Selwood out of Sloane, Hannebery, Ebert, Gray or Gibbs

INPieman

Over a 2 week period I like Gray from that lot. Especially next week. He will slaughter the Suns at home

LetsGo

Last week I traded Merrett to Neale because I didn't want to cop the donut. I'm thinking this week I might have to make that trade again (Neale to Merrett) considering that Neale is being rested. Should I go with Merrett (again) or should I try for a POD in rocky?

Ja191

I like beams over rocky. If your opponent has zerrett go the POD

Bluebagger

Rockliff or Beams?

Pman

I used my last trade last week to bring in Lachie Neale for Jelwood and he rewards me with a pus filled 44 which cost me a loss in 3 of 4 cash leagues and now he's out injured this week which means I'm pretty much cooked for the Pre-Lims this weekend and back to the drawing boards for 2018. Geez it's been a difficult SC season this year!

TOPHAWK1

Riding the razor's edge this week going into major prelims.

After reading the teams when dropped tonight, I quickly realised my only mid/def bench cover was gone! Conor Glass was bloody omitted!

Then it got worse, Michael Hurley out with a calf…..WTF!! Staring at a donut going into a prelim…….

I kept scrolling down in a panic……….and then Melbourne v Brisbane was up- Alex Witherden…. IN!! Ohhh fark yeah!!!

This is what has come down to folks. I have a side on the park. I have no cash, no trades, no bench cover, and riding my luck until the finish line.

Good luck all!

Russty_

Good luck mate…make sure you get to next week so I can smash ya then LOL

TOPHAWK1

Hehehehe. Dont get ahead of yourself mate.

Russty_

Nah I wouldn't do that, I do have cover on all lines though 😉 Hope you have a stress free win this week bud.

Swans2012

I'm in the process of burning my last trade then I'm in your boat hawk(although a bit of cover)! It comes down to my favourite poker saying "a chip, a seat", all you need is to be alive in the game still, then it's in the lap of the (evil) Supercoach gods

James

Robbie Gray or Dan Hannebery??

ahmad rubas

docherty adams laird rance lloyd ryan (newman scharenberg)
danger bont kelly murphy fyfe parker treloar kennedy (greenwood witherden cunningham)
mumford gawn (strnadica)
macrae dahlhaus steele nank buddy greene (stewart eddy)

102k 4 trades left what should i do?
my non playing players are newman cunningham strnadica eddy obviously strnadica is my swingset with nank if any rucks go down and trading out eddy will only net me 40k so maybe trading newman and cunningham may be the way to go with newman to junker and cunningham to dusty which allows me to put someone like jpk at m9 and loophole. is this the right idea to really maximise points in midfield or would it be better strengthing my backline and forward line as they are very weak.

or if anyone has any other ideas to help out please let me know very confused with what to do for this prelim final

Hawks

Enviable position, and yes I think those trades make sense.

ahmad rubas

im happy with the 4 trades left but my team is really weak compared to others imo

Russty_

Hey Ahmad, I'd trade Newman down to Junkyard or whatever his name is..leave your midfield as is and trade out Nank for Ryder.
Nank's output lately has been mediocre, you need someone there averaging 100.

ahmad rubas

thanks for the idea i might actually do that i keep my ruc fwd swing and get rid of nank terrible scores

Lazza

I'd be dumping Steele or Nank for Ryder up fwd. you can loophole Scharenburg & Ryan.
Haven't done the math on your cash.. if not enough cash trade out Newman replace with non playing $102k DPP rookie whose team plays late, which will allow the DEF loophole. It will give u cash to upgrade the following week if u get through.

Don't Blush Baby

IMO, trade Newman down,upgrade Ryan to Hibbered,Howe.,Martin or Mcdonald to whatever suits you team

Relton

Gentleman!
Nank>Ryder
or
Scharenberg>T.adams
going schaz to adams means i can bench either lloyd or shaw who are in ppoor form.
Biting the bullet on Jelwood to rocky. lets hope he has a couple more tons in him.

Russty_

With Schaz averaging 89 (3 round)..I'd go Nank to Ryder. Tough one though cause Adams is killing it lately also.
I just think Nank is done as a good scorer with Soldo in there, and his new role as half ruck, half slow big clumsy forward.

neil Demons Delight

I would go the opposite keep nank and get adams both go big

Russty_

Also a good choice 🙂

B rian

nank to ryder is a glorious trade. you wont regret it

garfield_da_cat

Last trade left for the year and $12,600 in the bank currently my team is
Def- Doc, Adams, Laird, Lloyd, Hibberd(melb) bench-Hurley and Witherdin
Mid- Danger, Titch, Neale, Sloane, Zorko, Zerret, Fyfe, Greenwood bench- Selwood, Cousins, Lloyd(gws)
Rucks- Grundy, Gawn bench- Strndika
FWD- Macrae, Yeo, Buddy, Dahlhaus, Daniher, Heeney, bench- Parsons and Smith

I get that my team has more holes than a block of swiss cheese, Hurley Grundy Selwood and Neale all outs this week but i would appreciate any advice on who to use my last trade on?

Russty_

Joel or Scott on your bench?
If it's Joel you're in trouble as you already know, I'd go Grundy to Mumford or Martin..and just cop the 1 donut.
You need a Mid / def in the mids, think about that next time bud. Good luck.

garfield_da_cat

Joel on my bench. Is it worth trading out Grundy when he is going to be back in next week? If i trade out Jelwood i can put Neale on my bench and hope that Ross plays him next week and Grundy is also in next week that way i still only cop the 1 donut.

Russty_

Hey mate, you could go Joel, but who would you get for him?…Maybe Rocky?…depends I guess if you can get a good mid for $486,200, trust your gut and pick whoever you think will get you the win this week, otherwise next week doesn't matter.

Some mid options for ya…..
Gray
Billings
Jordan Lewis
Ebert
Dunstan
Hanners
N.Jones
Gibbs
Douglas

If you go Rocky, and survive the week, you could maybe pick up Crouch next week if Neale's still out.

Good luck Mr Cat

garfield_da_cat

Thanks for the advice Rusty but if i went Rocky i couldn't pick up Crouch next week because i only have 1 trade left.

Russty_

Oops sorry mate, my bad.

Russty_

One of my favourite comments of the year from the mystical Crouching one…."Majak Daw…He shit" LOL

name

Hurley to Howe or p.o.d SAVAGE (consistent last 5 rounds)
RESPOND PLS

Lazza

If you were playing me I'd want you to go Savage, cos I have Howe..

Joshua

Beams, Parker, Murphy, Merrett or Rockliff?

James T

Hey Josh, I'd go Parker for sure mate. He's the gun mid of a team steamrolling their way home to finals. But in order of risk I'd go Parker, Merrett, Beams, Murphy, Rocky. Good luck mate

Will

What mids does everyone think will have DPP status next year ?

Lazza

Gray for one… Laird to go to mid DPP …

Hawks

Dusty should be a certainty, Bont & Danger possibly

Paul

Merrett or Zorko for Neale?

Snail

Draft league question boys.
Do I run with Daniher (against CARL) and hope he kicks a bag or Mclean (against PORT)?
I'm truly conflicted, any insight would be greatly welcomed!

Snail

I appear to also be very special because ESS are playing GCS

Adam Clarke

Alright lads im in a bit of a pickle and need some help,
i have 2 trades left with ablett and neale both out. my original plan was to trade ablett out for matt crouch and then upgrade nank to ryder but now that neale is out my plan goes to shit, any suggestions?

gator59

Trade abblett to crouch for now and use bench cover for neale….that's if you have any even via dpp's

at least nank is a warm body and save other trade for next week

Doc

Last chance/last trade.

Big prelim this week.

Comes down to (me) Greenwood, J.cameron, Shaw, JJK, Zerrer, STEVEN + 1 more. V (opponent) Jacobs, J.Stewart, Nyhuis, Heppell, Murphy, Steele, Fyfe.

Can get anyone under 495k (any line through DPPs).
Billings, Rocky, Roberton, or any other suggestions.

Leaning towards Billings.
