THE CHEAT SHEET Round 11

Published by Damo on

Port Adelaide and Gold Coast have had their bye and so they are the focus of this week’s cheat sheet, because their players could be a good constant through the bye rounds, which we should all be focusing on now.

You only need 18 playing on your field, but the more the merrier because SuperCoach counts your 18 top scoring players. So having some cover is still good.

Port Adelaide have the more SuperCoach friendly side out of the two this year, so you won’t see any Gold Coast players in this week’s cheat sheet at least, but I can assure there are players who I think are worth looking into. Jack Martin is good for a score of 85-95 most games this season, and Aaron Hall plays well when he isn’t being tagged.

At the end of every other player’s little spiel, I have written their bye rounds, because I think it needs to be in the front of people’s minds, especially if you’re considering someone like Dustin Martin who has the round 14 bye, a bye which a lot of popular players share this year.

How’s your team going? Are you prepared for the upcoming byes? Have I grossly overlooked anyone?

In the meantime, see you next Thursday for the next cheat sheet!

My nipples could cut glass.

Let's go GSW!!! 🏀

DavidSA

Goodbye

DavidSA

I like the look of Boak
I would say Dixon is a steal with Ports run home and easy prey but he has been awful this season

stacey

i like the look of your sexy arms Davey.

I wouldn't touch Dixon with your d1ck though dave. be careful.

Flo

That's disgusting Stacey!!!! Have you guys worked out who can bench the most yet?

Derek

There is always the Chad

DavidSA

Chad has been annoying to watch tbh Derek he can't contest packs or leap like he used to

Adam

I had a dream… either boak or Westhoff is getting 120+

MEK

Westhoff Gray or Boak which ones

MEK

sorry one of them

DavidSA

Westhoff or Boak
Infact having both is not crazy either having Boak as M9 F6 swing

theRealPod

Westhoff avg 107 and plays better with no Ryder

Defying_Madness

F**k Mirra dropped again
Howe injured and Yeo has survived.
Ridley named HF though???

BlueBaggerJosh

Have to field Duman or Murphy

Jack

I need Murphy or Murray to play otherwise I'm facing one. Great trade in last week Howe was.
Alternatively I could reset my trades and bring in that GC 102k defender instead of Smith or Walters

theRealPod

Not sure why Mirra dropped, he's not the problem in Hawks backline.

Marty

Howe has bone bruising. I dodged a bullet getting Yo Yo in last week instead.

Jack

I got hit by that bullet. I preferred Yeo, Hurley or Lloyd but was worried about the damn byes. Brayshaw would have been better too

JohnDJ59

The byes have a lot to answer for.

hedski

Jeez will have to play Murphy D6 if he makes the cut…(or reverse trades if he doesn't)

Shake_n_Bake_

Just play 1 short Hedski??!!

hedski

Hmmm….

theRealPod

Reverse those trades Hedski. On a brighter note, Wylie Buzza in, and Gaz to pump out a 300.

hedski

Go cats. Slightly worries tho Pod, suns go OK against us.

Defying_Madness

Murphy made the cut so reverse those trades again

Marty

I would say Otten, O'Reilly and Murphy would be the three players dropped. It will be interesting to see. Prefer Murphy to be in for $$ generation.

Swans2012

Same boat hedski, frustrating…..

hedski

Extremely Swans, if I have to bring in a Ridley/Rice means I lose money on TK and will have to pay more for Walters.

KSinny

Got Howe in last week, gets 58 then is out injured… nice

Tom

What u gonna do with him?

KSinny

Hold if Murphy plays

JugHead

Same here. Ironic that the defence line was my first finished line and is now my main cause of headaches.

Jack

Same KSinny. What's worse I'm facing a donut. I have good coverage everywhere except back

Jace

I had a donut in the backlines last week but still scored 2548

Russty_

That's pretty bloody amazing, big score with a sugary donut.

TBrab

Same here KSinny, wish I'd copped the donut last week and kept Hurley. What's the bet Hurley scores 120+ on return this week?

Tyruddanaut

TUM Smith or Dusty Martin?

Shake_n_Bake_

Not sure about the Freo tip there Damo!

hedski

I'm worried about the suns one though.

Shake_n_Bake_

Could be a close one!

SCDamien

Gotta stick by them! They could surprise! But yeah, my purple coloured glasses are stapled to my head unfortunately.

Shake_n_Bake_

Definitely could surprise. Just hope its not against us!

Pauly

Currently have 15 trades and need to trade kelly, murray or fisher i dont want to make two trades so kelly is my trade i have 99k i can do a dpp swap to foward but im not sure who to bring in.

Option 1: kelly to rocky
Option 2: kelly heeney dpp to midfield than Walters
Option 3: kelly heeney dpp to tim smith for cash

nankthetank

Depends how you cash flow is at the moment.
If you think you'll need some high earning rookies then tim smith is perfect for that, but if you're after a keeper I'd go rocky.
His ceiling is massive as proven last year and he's cheap as chips so it'd still be a downgrade from Kelly.
Don't get me wrong though for Walters' price you can't really go wrong, as long as he stays fit.

Marty

5 out of 8 player on the bench are playing this week so I will take that. No defenders unless Murphy gets a gig. Might have to fix that next week. How is everyone going with their benches?

PJs

terrible , mirra , murphy , Higgins , UDL , barry , rata , spargo , garlett , luckily the on field boys r doing their job , byes r gna hurt

Marty

Can be tough PJ as you don't want to keep burning trades fixing rookies.

Derek

Awful. I have one. Spargo is my only benchman getting a game

The Ranger

4 from 8

Big fact hunt

7out of 8 playing only Crossley out hope it stays like that for all the byes. Been lucky with rookies got all the right ones. Unfortunately got all the crap premiums

Ken

I had Brodie from the start of the season (Held him) …hopefully plays

TOPHAWK1

FML. Howe out. If the prick does not return until after his bye (rnd 14) he is pretty much rendered useless. Out for three weeks. Does anybody know how bad his bone bruising is? Is it likely to be a one weeker or will he sit out out until after his bye? If it is the latter, I might have to bite the bullet and use a corrective trade. Howe straight to Hurley.

Sc_Wow

Cmon mate gotta hold those premiums, you’d still have rookie cover wouldn’t you?
I’ve had hurley out the last two week and had to hold not worth the trade.

TOPHAWK1

I can live with 2 weeks, but 3 weeks is another story. Especially with the byes coming.

Sc_Wow

Just a heads up if you hold for this week and then trade to Hurley next, he will play one more then have his bye. So you’d only be trading for the sake of one week

Marty

Can vary from days to months. They can take time but too hard to tell without more knowlege of the injury

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Two weeks.
So make that 3.
Back rd 14 afyer his bye.

Da_Boysh

what is your rank? if you are top 300ish i would burn a trade for him otherwise no point. assume he is back after byes

Jack

I don't know Howe its come to this?? Any chance Murray gets named?

Ja191

Yeah he’ll replace howe most likely

Jack

Maynard is also in and has been named back pocket. Does that change your thinking?

JohnDJ59

I traded Murray out for Howe last week

Russty_

You shouldn't have gone hiking over that ancient Aboriginal burial ground John 🙂

JohnDJ59

HaHaHa, I really must have done something wrong Russty, although the Howe one is on me, shouldn't have changed my plans, just because of the byes.

Russty_

The worst part is not knowing how long he's out for yet, I guess we'll know next week.

Gav

Should I field Smith over Billings.

nankthetank

I've been tempted to field rookies instead of Petracca all season but can't bring myself to do so in case he goes big, and then I'm the dickhead who had a (once) premo on the bench.
It's logical to bench him but I could never bring myself to do it.

Swans2012

Same boat nank, doing the same just waiting waiting

Sc_Wow

Not sure Petraca can be listed in the premo or even once category yet. Highest average of 78 and 6 tons in his career. Looks like another 78 season for him this year

Swans2012

Your right wow, he was speculative, but not worth the trade to remove him, fwiw I reckon he'll average 85-90 from here and be excellent bench cover.
no reason this year with the good rookies we've had you can't have decent cover on all lines

Sc_Wow

Tbh I’d rather keep some of the good rookies for cover over him

Swans2012

Dpp important for cover, he's got much better job security and scoring potential than any of the rookie dpp's

Da_Boysh

i booted him and i have not looked back.

Swans2012

Yep wish I had, but too late now, I'm committed

JohnDJ59

Yes, plus why do you still have Billings.

DavidC

Can you loop Smith?

John

What's Kerr's job security like?

BlueBaggerJosh

will most likely go out for casboult after the bye

John

Have to choose between getting in smith Walters or one of (rice/ridley/austin)
If I don't get a defence rookie I'll have a 0 thanks to mirra getting dropped (unless Murphy somehow plays)

What should I Do?

JohnDJ59

I'm getting in Rice and Smith, would have liked Walters, but no cash after two upgrades last week, need the cash generation.

Jack

Walters or Brayshaw?

John

Walters

DavidSA

gghjkseeyyuioyouttyuiallkklzxnextoopasyearffghj

neil demons delight

see you next year WHY?

Russty_

You allright Dave…a few too many West Ends tonight?

Jack

I think David's been on better stuff than that. Billings was a premium and Zac Dawson was playing again last time

Daniel

Now that mirra is dropped is there any merit in upgrading him early to yeo, as if I don't I'll be copping a donut this week, or should i trade l.murphy to ridley or rice this week instead and grab yeo after his bye?

Jono

Should I trade in Heron for Naughton this week?

I've already done 1 trade this week; Billings out and Walters in!! Leaves me with $417,200k in the bank with 16 trades left!! But could be 15 if I execute the trade listed above.

My team is;
Defenders; Laird,Yeo,Hurley,Tuohy, Witherden and Coffield. (Naughton and Redman)

Mids: Dangerfield,Dusty,Mitchell,Fyfe,Higgins,McLean,Phillips and Spargo. (Crowden,Barry,England)

Rucks: Gawn and Nic Nat (Cameron)

Forwards; M.Robinson,Buddy,Walters,D.Smith,Stephenson and Fritsch. (Rayner and Garlett)

Jack

What's everyone rating higher this year forwards or backs? In other words where do you plan on having Sicily end up?

sam

very good question Jack, i started and still have him down back but am tossing it up atm.

For me it's whether i believe Webster will maintain his form, if he can then i think defenders are stronger and will push sicily forward.

What are you leaning towards?

Jack

I'm 50/50 Sam. I was thinking forwards were better, then defenders, now I think there is good value in the forwards atm, now I'm not sure. Understand, you waiting to see if Webster's up to it or a flash in the pan, that might just split it

Ahmad rubas

more forwards averaging 100 compared to defenders would rather Sicily down back

KSinny

Since Howe is out I'm thinking of going Kelly to Smith via DPP and Henry to Webster using Keefe DPP. This will allow me to cover Howe for however long he is out and when he's back I'll have a full premo Backline. This leaves me with 15 trades and $217k in the Bank.

DEF: Laird, Yeo, Sicily, Webster, Simpson, Howe (Ridley, Murphy)

Defying_Madness

Paying way overs for Webster

KSinny

Who would you suggest?

John

Who to field ronke home against Carlton or Tim smith against bulldogs

Jack

2 very good options, hard to pass up Smith though

John

Im leaning towards smith at the moment

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Can u loop Ronke?

WinnerRGrinners

Walters Or Rockcliff ????????????

what do you recon??

Maverick_

depends on ya bye structure and team in general. i was all for rocky monday-tuesday btu starting to get cold feet but would still take him over walters. Bye's passed an has a huge ceiling if can find a tank. named R/R too.

Ahmad rubas

I'm going Rockliff mainly because I haven't planned for byes really well so rocky is much more use to me than walters

Ahmad rubas

very likely to get injured but so is walters imo i guess i should pass on both but will probably still end up making the rocky move

theRealPod

Pass

Jason

Well i’d Been eyeing off both rocky and beams and hoping keep it hush hush for a nice low POD %.. but now it’s on the cheat sheet whose the better option both priced at unders.

sam

Beams more likely a keeper imo

anthdepa7

DEF (J. Lloyd, Laird, Sciliy, Hurn, Savage, Doedee,) – Coffield, Mirra

MID (Macrae, Fyfe, Cripps, Mitchell, Parker, Coniglio, Martin , Spargo) – E.Phillips , Barry, Brayshaw

RUCK (Gawn, Grundy) – Cameron

FWD (McLean, Heeney, D.Smith, Franklin, Fritsch, Henry,) – Guelfi, Langdon,

$10,400 in the bank.

Currently ranked 6,410 coming off the back of a nice 2,465 couldn’t ask for much more. Have 17 trades left, open to all trades options pls much appreciated.

Noah

Langdon to T Kelly

Russty_

You mean Tim Smith right Noah?

Noah

Yeah sorry

anthdepa7

Current trades Coffield and Langdon for Smith and Ridley, then bring in Hoff or Gray with extra money in the kitty.

Marty

Hold

Marty

Coffield isn't named this week. You need to keep painting the fence. Naughton to Sicily?

Ahmad rubas

Any chance of coffield coming back in the side? When I saw he was managed assumed he would be back in this week

FearTheBeard

Yeo or Webster?

Murray, Mirra, Murphy all farked me so gonna cut Murray now.

theRealPod

Murray a chance with Howe out.

FearTheBeard

Isn't he just listed as emergency? Maynard is down in his old spot?

theRealPod

I'm seeing him on extended bench atm. Apples will prob nudge him out but wait till final teams tomorrow night if you can

FearTheBeard

Will have a look.

Though comes back to Yeo or Webster?

nankthetank

Yeo is proven to be a very good scorer but Webster is in better form this year. Comes down to how you byes are looking and whether you want a safer option or a riskier POD.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

M&M mmmmaybe not.
Got those 3 as well
Was gonna trade Murray and put whoever i brought in on the pine.
With Mirra dropped they will have to play on field.
Plan was to get -hurley after the bye.
Guess plans change. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🙄" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f644.svg"&gt;

Derek

Bucks said he will be back ‘later in the year’. Not good

Russty_

Who's that Derek..Howe?

Derek

Murray

L G

How much will Rock go up by ? i'm thinking double down grade…

Browncow

About 30k if he plays similar to the last two weeks L G. Smith goes up 50k just by stepping on to the field.

L G

Thanks BrownCow, I'll go Smith & Rice for the cash.

sam

is it worth fielding a zero down back to get Walters and T.Smith in other lines

or should i trade a defender?

theRealPod

Walters isn't a must have imo. Smith juicy and will make you cash

Dale

A lot of talk early in the week of rocky.. everyone gone cold now why?
Bye friendly and Cheap as chips.
I gamble worth taking I think.
Westhoff & rocky in for me tonight.

prizza

They all shit there pants , gone safe, no guts no glory

Derek

Rocky not a top 10 midfielder. Already full premium in guts.

Russty_

Playing Pieman, Derek twice, Tophawks and Neil this week, gonna need a bit of luck with Howe out….spewing Naughton didn't get up, listed as a test but not even named at all.

Maverick_

Didn't think they'd rush him back before his bye russty. expect to see him in Rd 13.
This week off gave him 2 weeks to make sure his cherry ripe.

Sc_Wow

Think you should have most of them covered ruusty

Russty_

Not sure Wow, prediction isn't too high and have to play Duman onfield..can loop Smith and Spargo though.

Derek

Twice! We might split it and win one each.

Russty_

Haha I'll take that Derek. 🙂

neil demons delight

Don't take any notice of wow Russty I am going to give you a run mate

Shake_n_Bake_

Glad Naughton wasn’t named this week Russty. He cant bleed cash not playing. Fits in what im hoping to do with trades.

NEIL Demons Delight

The Shaken bake has started NDD

Shake_n_Bake_

Preparation Neil 🙂

KSinny

I have 1 more spot left in my defense and can afford anyone. Who do I get?

DEF is currently Laird, Yeo, Sicily, Simpson, Howe, Ridley (Murray, Keefe) will be trading Henry and swinging Keefe forward to get this defender.

nankthetank

Hurley is the bets bet but with a high BE and the round 13 bye you might want to wait. Savage is a cheaper option if you're feeling brave and want a POD

Maverick_

I agree on hurley. or Ryan as a nice POD. depending on ya bye structure

TommyC99

Which one please community?
Rocky – shown he can score well but injuries an issue. Ideal during the byes
JJK – poor run of form but cheap as chips and playing a poor saints at home. I smell a large one
Walters – know what he can do scoring wise but the bye injuries an issue.

Maverick_

I like Rocky & JJK.
Rd14 bye puts me off walters.
if you have the trades for if it all goes wrong get rocky i love his ceiling and the bye cover.

TommyC99

Cheers mate. I currently have 16 trades left and will be doing 2 this week

The Ranger

Flip a coin Tommy, I could talk myself in and out of all of those trades.

anthdepa7

Gray or Hoff? Gray has a be of 137 should drop 15k need your guys opinion, ill be trading one in for Fritsch round 12

Sam

Id go gray depending on how he goes this week

Hoff just doesn't seem as reliable to me

Noah

T Smith or Henry on field

Jack

Smith for sure

Russty_

Loop Smith if you can mate, could be a pod not having him onfield if he spuds it.

Noah

Good idea, but all my bench is playing.

Sandyf62

Henry is a bit up and down, at least Smith has gone very well in his two games so far.

Plugger

Why all the hype of this smith bloke.
I don’t really wanna got him in but don’t wanna miss the boat!

Option 1 : kelly to rocky & ZGL to hoff

Option 2 : kelly to hoff (swing forward rd13) & ZGL to smith

Tim kelly not josh thanks

Maverick_

option 1.

Lachy

Option 1 if u r set on rocky

Sandyf62

The hype is because he is scoring very well, has JS and will make lots of cash, what more do you want from a rookie.

Sesh Lord

Do people think that Webster will average around 100 for the rest of the year?

Derek

100 is a big number

Jack

No

Will

Who will average more: Walters, Buddy or Gray

Lazza

Get them all and it won’t matter

Jack

I reckon Gray

Simo036

Westhoff

Rick Grimes

I recall a similar week couple years back. Lot of talk about Rocky. Knocked out near 200 from memory. Not saying he'll do that to us again, but he's the type of bloke who will. I'm still tempted.

Dale

Would love to know what he avgd after that 200 rick. Probably injured the next game?
Still tempting me though too

Russty_

He got his 204 in round 11 2016, and was averaging 97 then, then he got 9 more tons for the rest of the year, ended up averaging 111.

G.C.

Got a bit of a conundrum community, would love your input. As it stands:

$93k in the bank
18 trades left
Rank 7644

Do I take
A) Trade Dom Barry to Tim Smith (via Spargo DPP) getting $152k in the bank ready for the byes
B) Trade Andrew Brayshaw to Tim Smith (via Spargo DPP), then upgrade ZGL to Walters, leaving just $58k in the bank for the byes

Getting rid of dead weight and more money is nice, but how important is it to get Walters in this week, especially with Sandi out?

Gus

Go A. Keep warm bodies and get cash generating. Walters is a pass not a must in my opinion

AuroraBorealis?!

I'm bringing in Treloar this week, i got burnt so badly last year. PLEASE DONT HURT ME AGAIN ADAM

Dale

Burnt me last year I’d rather risk it on rocky at 200k cheaper.

Russty_

Hey mate, Treloar's going alright this year, very solid, no worries with him I reckon.

TOPHAWK1

I am seriously considering going T Kelly to Tom Rockliff and going early on Jacob Heron this week. Gives me loads of bye cover, Howe cover, cash (cow) cover, donut cover, and 15 trades and $370 K in the sky rocket.

Russty_

He is a beast when fit Hawker…risk vs reward with him.

Sc_Wow

I thought rocky was a no brainer

Da_Boysh

who said he was a no brainer? I won't be grabbing him

Sc_Wow

Hawk

AuroraBorealis?!

Yeah thats why i'm bringing him in, had a look at all his games on fanfooty and his DE has been up around 70+ for most rounds

Finnius

averaged 111 in 2016. Great pick, especially now that the pies arent shit.

AuroraBorealis?!

The pies are still a bit shit, but better than last year, which is encouraging as a supporter.

Jack

Last year is last year don't let that stop you. Having said that though I don't think he is a must have. Have you considered Gaff instead?

AuroraBorealis?!

I have considered him Jack, he's ultra consistent but i just dont feel like his ceiling is there. Both him and Treloar are pods but if i pick the one that pulls out 130+ every week it'll really help my ranking.

prizza

Great choice, he is much more direct this year like the whole side, when breaking the lines he is a jet

Corey

Tim Kelly to Walters
Garlett To T.Smith
or
Tim Kelly to Rockliff
Garlett To Walters

TommyC99

I think you have to get Tim Smith in, so I’d go option 1

Corey

Thankyou

Sandyf62

Walters and Smith, a premo and a cash generation.

Stupid Coach

I am down to 16 trades and 120k in the bank. At this stage, thinking T Kelly to Heeney only. However, tempted to trade Gowers to T Smith or is that a wasted trade at this stage of the season. Any advice/thoughts much appreciated.

Russty_

I'd get rid of Gowers, he's done making money and usually scores in the 40's, not a big loss there, Smith could be a big gain though with dosh and points.

Sandyf62

Not a wasted trade if you are gaining points and cash.

Jack

Gowers to Smith will potentially be the best trade you'll make for the year. Go for it

Lachy

So this week I’m gettin in two of: rocky gray westhoff & boak. 1 fwd 1 mid. Happy to get hoff or gray in the guts will swing them fwd after byes! They have a cruisey draw on the run home.

Noah

Walters or mclean this week?

Daniel Z

McLean has the bye next week, so would make more sense to get him after that. Plus, Walters has a much lower breakeven, so will be more expensive to get in later.

John

$91k and 15 trades left after using 1 already. Is it worth getting Ridley if my backline has Doedee Cole and Murphy as my rookies?

Defying_Madness

Now that I think about it it might be time to trade out Mirra even with his insanely low be. He won't play over the next 2 weeks and Birchall should be back soon making it harder for him to find a spot.
Thoughts community?

Marcus

If you're short for either this week or next week I'd trade.
If you can afford to have him sit on pine, could be worth holding. Would have to imagine he'd be a chance round 13/14 where he would be great cover . If not named then just punt him before round 13

Derek

birchell is still a fair way off.

Mirra has a poor game last week, was undersized.

Has been replaced this week by Howe, a midfielder.

Not a good sign for Mirra. Might struggle to get back in team.

Sc_Wow

Can always hold and see if heron is named next week

Defying_Madness

Yeah I might be doing that. Cheers Wow
