Is this the beginning of the end?
*uncontrollable sobbing*
Please refer to last week’s cheat sheet because those options are still very relevant in the wake of this disaster. I’ve put some more options in this week too.
Jake Lloyd is getting hard to ignore. Joel Selwood and Andrew Gaff are still reliable as ever. Sam Jacobs appears to have found some form, and Luke Breust has flown under the radar.
Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present to you, the cheat sheet:

Damm, Heeney is out. time to look for options.

Have Moore & T Smith on the bench, one of them might have to go

    SC_Kev7 · 05/07/2018 at 09:37

    If you've got a mid swing like Ahern then Moore to Sier is an option. Moore was given games as a project player, don't see him playing again this year

      JEL · 05/07/2018 at 18:47

      I was skeptical with Moore as well, but the SC gods work in mysterious ways….. he's been named this week!!

      Sier was definitely an option, good that I can wait another week to see how he goes.

Josh · 04/07/2018 at 19:42

Any suggestions on what to do this week would be really appreciated

7 trades left $44k in the bank

Def- Laird, Sicily, Yeo, Webster, Hurley, Savage (Richards, Taylor)
Mid- Fyfe, Mitchell, Cripps, Kelly, Curnow, Parker, Coniglio, Merrett (Ahern, Giro, J Smith)
Ruck- Gawn, Nic Nat (Olango)
Fwd- Heeney, McDonald, McLean, Franklin, Walters, Battle (T Smith, Keeffe)

    pigjumpprusik · 04/07/2018 at 20:13

    I'd use 1 trade and move Fyfe to any mid of your liking, plenty of options at his price. I'd hold Heeney and use Richards for cover.

    In a week or 2, look to upgrade Richards to any def or fwd to finish your team and get Battle off the field. Could go Fyfe to Crouch, free up 100k and have 500k for an upgrade.

      Josh · 05/07/2018 at 04:47

      Who do you think is the best option I'm missing?
      Danger, Gaff, Neale, Oliver, JPK, Higgins, Ward or any others? Murphy could even be a sneaky POD if he can stay on the field.

        Loop · 05/07/2018 at 05:06

        Battle is injured. You need a plan if T Smith doesnt play.

          Josh · 05/07/2018 at 05:10

          Will be swapping Sicily and Keeffe via DPP. Play Sicily forward and sub on Richards in the backline. Will also swap Heeney and Ahern (assuming he plays)

            Loop · 05/07/2018 at 05:55

            Good plan.

          BockChoy · 05/07/2018 at 12:49

          A battle plan! πŸ™‚

SC_Sixty6 · 04/07/2018 at 20:19

Fyfe will sit on the bench and be a pod when he returns.

    Dann · 04/07/2018 at 20:27

    Hmmmm you’d want his cover to score well & Fyfe to hit form immediately which seems unlikely.

    Ahmad rubas · 04/07/2018 at 20:28

    is it too much money/points to leave on the bench considering he may not even be back by round 20

    Russty_ · 04/07/2018 at 20:58

    Who would you cover him with though 66?..gonna do any trade ins this week?…could hurt the rankings a bit if you don't offload Fyfe and have to depend on a rook.

    OTW · 04/07/2018 at 21:49

    66 has run out of trades

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 05/07/2018 at 11:15

      20 and a half premo team not including Fyfe sitting on the bench 66 is your choice?
      Good luck

    DavidC · 05/07/2018 at 15:20

    I'll probably do the same, don't want to burn another trade at this stage.

    Ben · 05/07/2018 at 17:51

    Probably has run out of trades

Dann · 04/07/2018 at 20:26

Taylor Adams for Fyfe?

    Coz311 · 04/07/2018 at 23:21

    I was flirting with this idea. Really trying to go ultra risk/POD to jump some ranks with this Fyfe trade. I've gone Murphy but Adams was up there for me.

TBone_9 · 04/07/2018 at 20:50

Laird, Simmo, Yeo, Sicily, Howe, Doedee (Heron, Redman)
Danger, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Oliver, Parker, Cogs, Dusty (Ahern, Giro, O’Connor)
Gawn, Martin (Olango)
Heeney, McLean, Gray, Walter, Smith, Fritsch (Battle, T. Smith)

216k and 9 trades left.
I’m thinking Doedee to Lloyd and Fyfe to Crouch/Beams? This would allow me to go Fritsch up to Westhoff/Menegola and then slightly upgrade Dusty by about 50k.

Or I can go Fritsch up to Westhoff and Fyfe to Gaff. Then next week go Doedee up to Hurn/Ryan and Dusty to Selwood/Neale/Curnow.

Any opinions appreciated! Cheers guys πŸ™‚

    SC_Kev7 · 05/07/2018 at 09:56

    Prefer the second option of Westhoff and Gaff, TBone. Lloyd's price is getting a bit too far far north for me right now. Replacing Fyfe I'd be chasing reliability

      TBone_9 · 05/07/2018 at 11:24

      Cheers Kev! Getting two reliable scorers in makes a lot of sense to me. Appreciate the response mate!

Maverick_ · 04/07/2018 at 21:03

Am making 2 trades this week but cannot split the two players for each option..

Trade 1: Fyfe to crouch or beams ??

Trade 2: naughton to Lloyd or Simpson ??

Any advice is appreciated

    Russty_ · 04/07/2018 at 21:09

    I'd go Crouch and Lloyd if I had to choose Mav, just cause they're in better teams, and Lloyd is younger, I'm considering Pendles too in that price bracket.

      Maverick_ · 04/07/2018 at 21:14

      Thanks russty! I am leaning toward beams and Lloyd I have a huge soft spot for dayne and would love him in my side But my head is saying crouch is going to come home strong if Sloane hangs round n takes some of the attention.

    BlueBaggerJosh · 04/07/2018 at 21:13

    Crouch by a mile, do not see the appeal of Beams, so inconsistent and scored a 37 just recently fully fit for crying out loud. Lloyd and Simpson are both very good options, id go Lloyd just because simmo is more prone to 70's scores.

      Maverick_ · 04/07/2018 at 21:43

      By a mile is a stretch. Beams has a huge ceiling and is starting to find his rhythm again. Except for that one stinker

      DAnn · 04/07/2018 at 21:59

      Decent 5 round average when you think there’s a 37 in there. Brisbane have a rough run home from memory but maybe that doesn’t matter for Beams.

Corey · 04/07/2018 at 21:44

Fyfe Replacement?
Current Midfield
Titch, J.Kelly, Danger, Cripps, Coniglio, Dusty, Rockliff

    BlueBaggerJosh · 04/07/2018 at 21:55

    i'm probably going Neale as he is a POD, fairly consistent, has the biggest ceiling and should thrive with Fyfe out.
    J.Kelly, Gaff, JPK and Crouch are very close to edging out Neale so plenty of time for my mind to change.

      Dann · 04/07/2018 at 22:00

      What do you think of Mitch Duncan? Have Crouch, can’t afford Kelly.

        BlueBaggerJosh · 04/07/2018 at 22:13

        definitely another good option, in 2% of teams but not sure if he measures up as i believe there are too many points being shared by the cats mids.

Kyle · 04/07/2018 at 22:07

Think j kelly wilm be good for the rest of the season? These injuries are getting out of hand..

    BlueBaggerJosh · 04/07/2018 at 22:20

    Injuries can come from anywhere man, wouldn't have suspected fyfe, Macrae or treloar doing their hammies. Kelly seems to be over his groin issue so back him in

BrownlowBoy · 04/07/2018 at 22:14

Whispers Matt Crouch has a broken hand

    Finnius · 04/07/2018 at 22:16

    i'll cry

    Sam_01 · 04/07/2018 at 22:17

    Surely not I was gonna bring him in for Fyfe to allow me to get Grundy for nicnat

    BlueBaggerJosh · 04/07/2018 at 22:18

    No way

    Maverick_ · 04/07/2018 at 22:19

    Let’s hope so. That’ll make my decision a lot easier BB

      Sam_01 · 04/07/2018 at 22:20

      Where did we hear these rumours

    Keenbutclueless · 04/07/2018 at 22:41

    Please don’t be true. Brought in Treloar. Straight out. Brought in Crouch to replace. Surely couldn’t also be straight out. If that is true this will be the 8th time this season it has happened. I know the game can be challenging, but that sort of run makes the game unenjoyable.

    Russty_ · 04/07/2018 at 23:12

    Please elaborate BB…haven't seen any news of this rumour.

    theRealPod · 05/07/2018 at 08:50

    Do you have an update on this post?

      Kevdup · 05/07/2018 at 14:07

      A small fracture on hand, but will play. Has trained all week.

      Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 14:19

      I heard on the radio before Pyke said it's just a minor crack and Crouch will definitely play..even if he's a bit sore.

      DavidC · 05/07/2018 at 15:27

      He'll play but you would have to be a bit worried about his scoring in the short term. Plus it could get worse with another knock.

Gibbs · 04/07/2018 at 22:15

Have 8 trades left, going to use one on Fyfe, should I use another to upgrade Martin to a Gaff, Selwood or ed Curnow?

    Russty_ · 04/07/2018 at 22:17

    Probably couldn't hurt Gibbs, maybe get the highest averaging top 8 mid you don't have, I'm still stuck with Martin too, still hoping he can turn it around lol

Russty_ · 04/07/2018 at 23:09

How many players do you have in your side averaging 100 or more per week…and how many are in the 90's ?
I have 16 with 5 averaging in the 90's.
Reckon I'd need more average tons to be doing really well, but trades are getting low.
Also how many trades are you down to and do you think you'll last until the end of the finals?
I'm down to 5 now.

    JEL · 04/07/2018 at 23:44

    14 + 7 with 5 trades left. Things looking tight for the run home.

      Russty_ · 04/07/2018 at 23:54

      You're doing alright JEL, unless you have pressing issues to take care of…I'm gonna try to hold off for a few.

        JEL · 05/07/2018 at 01:48

        Need to see what rookies play this week, hoping either T Smith or Moore get a guernsey as that would solve my Heeney issue

          ZzZCalintZzZ · 05/07/2018 at 11:20

          On field got: 11 over 105, 5 over 100, 6 over 93 with Mundy, Ahern and Mihocek on bench.
          Will trade Fyfe lol leaves me with 3 trades and Mundy still on back up swing duties.

    Rivo · 05/07/2018 at 13:44

    17, 3, 6 trades after the Fyfe trade this week. One last D6 upgrade to do.

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 05/07/2018 at 18:16

    Have 15 and 5 dont have heeney which is a bonus this week. Fyfe will become?? 9 trades. 8 after fyfe trade.

Corey · 04/07/2018 at 23:37

15, 4 with 8 Trades Left only Fritsch yet to upgrade although I do have Rocky as M8

    Russty_ · 04/07/2018 at 23:41

    That's a good position Corey…and 8 trades left is that before or after this week?

      Corey · 04/07/2018 at 23:46

      After this week, Trading Fyfe to Gaff I think at this stage I have Ahern as cover for Heeney

        Russty_ · 04/07/2018 at 23:52

        You're in a better position than most…could even afford to to a one down one up trade to generate some extra cash.

          Corey · 04/07/2018 at 23:59

          Potentially but I’m Concerned I’ll Run out of trades this season has been really tough

            Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 00:05

            Remember though, depending on how you are positioned, and how you go in the finals, you might only need 2, 4 max in the finals…but hey if you think you'll need all 8 mate, hold by all means, this could be the year where doing ok depends solely on having trades left, doesn''t take much carnage to fall away with no trades remaining.
            Injuries can be a crippling factor this year and have been for many.

          Corey · 05/07/2018 at 00:04

          This is my current team 9 Trades Left 25K in the Bank
          Laird, Yeo, Sicily, Simpson, Hurley, Savage (Mirra, Ridley)

          Mitchell, J.Kelly, Dangerfield, Fyfe Cripps, Coniglio, Martin, Rockliff, (Dawson, Phillips, Giro)

          Gawn, Nankervis (Olango)

          R.Gray, McLean, Heeney, Walters, D.Smith, Fritsch (Ahern, Ryan)

            Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 00:10

            Could consider Crouch, Pendles, even Shuey to make some money…for Fyfe, sometimes it's better to hang on by your fingernails and hope you survive rather than "trade aggressively", and burn out like a candle in the wind trying to impress people, this game is a long game mate, gotta go the distance, or you're just an also ran.

              Corey · 05/07/2018 at 00:14

              Hmm I really like Matt Crouch but is he fit?
              I guess I could Loophole Shuey and Rockliff and bring Macrae when he returns in a couple of weeks to complete my midfield, still waiting for a forward to become a standout option right now I’m content with Fritsch

Steve · 05/07/2018 at 06:25

Can not decide who to bring in for Fyfe,
Gaff or JPK

    TBone_9 · 05/07/2018 at 09:44

    Can’t go wrong with either mate! JPK’s form of late is very impressive though

    theRealPod · 05/07/2018 at 10:41


    BigAl_15 · 05/07/2018 at 14:01

    I'd go Gaff

The Brat · 05/07/2018 at 07:24

Bring in Mclean or Westhoff ?

    red5 · 05/07/2018 at 08:04

    McLean for me

      The Brat · 05/07/2018 at 08:25

      I was thinking that too. But i think the dogs have a harder run home, than Port. Maybe wont effect his scores.

      BigAl_15 · 05/07/2018 at 14:00


John · 05/07/2018 at 10:07

OK, this might sound dumb. Who should I trade in for Fyfe: Kelly, Danger, Mitchell or Pendlebury?

Limited trades left so I need to choose well. πŸ™

    Lekdog · 05/07/2018 at 10:38


    theRealPod · 05/07/2018 at 10:41

    Mitchell or Danger

    BigAl_15 · 05/07/2018 at 14:00

    Definitely Titch

Jamie · 05/07/2018 at 10:36

Ok guys need your opinions
Current team with 19.7k and 6 trades
D- Lloyd Simpson Sicily Laird Webster Stewart (Austin Cumming)
M- Mitchell Fyfe Cripps Dangerfield Kennedy Gaff Coniglio Martin (Phillips Giro Brown)
R- Gawn Martin
F- Robinson Heeney R.Gray D.Smith McLean Hogan (Ahern Giles Langdon)

Option 1: Fyfe to Crouch and Stewart to Yeo
Option 2: Fyfe to Kelly keep Stewart and trade Austin for someone who is playing as cover
Option 3: Fyfe to Crouch and Giles Langdon to Billings as a bench loophole
Option 4: Fyfe to Crouch Martin to Oliver

Cheers in advance

    The Ranger · 05/07/2018 at 10:41

    With only six trades I'd be just doing one trade Jamie.
    Fyfe – Kelly.

Lekdog · 05/07/2018 at 10:38

Cheat Sheet bloody good, package not.

Prizza · 05/07/2018 at 12:20

Could i just say that if you look like missing the finals in any of the leagues that really mean a lot to you then trade aggressively and make sure you make it.
Also you may have the chance of the weekly prize, saving trades and winning the bottom half of the finals should not appeal to geniune supercoaches.

BrownlowBoy · 05/07/2018 at 12:23

Regarding Matt Crouch post.

It is confirmed Crouch has a fractured hand and is probable for tomorrow night.

    Blueth · 05/07/2018 at 12:28

    "he's got a little crack but he's fine" Pyke.
    Don't think so thanks Don.
    Welcome Dyson Heppell

    hedski · 05/07/2018 at 13:01

    Hmmm, not sure how keen I am to get him in now….

    Defying_Madness · 05/07/2018 at 13:51

    Hahahahahaha Treloar to Crouch. On top of Fyfe as well. Hahahahahahahahahahahahah

corza27 · 05/07/2018 at 13:01

I am torn as to whom I should bring in for Fyfe, I have Danger, Higgins, Zerrett, Conig, Titch, Clarry, Cripps and Rocky M9. I am considering Kennedy, but will he be tagged too heavily?

murray · 05/07/2018 at 13:04

just heard crouch could be out with a broken hand
I wont go near him now

Am considering Gaff and Shuey for fyfe and guelfi
sound advice needed please

    DavidC · 05/07/2018 at 15:54

    He'll play no problems but I wouldn't be trading him in.

richie douglas · 05/07/2018 at 13:36

How many rounds left until finals ?

FearTheBeard · 05/07/2018 at 13:44

Got Danger, Titch, Dusty, Oliver, JKelly, Cogs, Cripps and Fyfe

Tossing up between Bont, JPK, Gaff, Neale?

Thoughts? I honestly have no bloody idea and its done my head in all week 😐

    theRealPod · 05/07/2018 at 13:57

    I would be all over Kennedy but Scooter prob go to him tonight.

      FearTheBeard · 05/07/2018 at 14:14

      Thinking JPK too. Can the tag stop him? With Parker, Hanners to a lesser extent and others still going is it worth tagging?

BrownlowBoy · 05/07/2018 at 13:56

Big Jon Patton has a suspected ACL injury which occurred at training.

Seems to be a lot of ACL injuries in the recently.

Docherty, Smith, Dunn, Black, Begely, Willis, Setterfield, Tiziani, Lever, Hayes, Hartlett, Naismith all currently out with ACL injuries.

With the likes of Nic Nat, Ceglar and Morris just recently returning.

We all know Menzel, Johnson and Woodward have all had multiple knee reconstructions, and this is Patton's third injury.

I wonder if there is anything that can be done to help prevent these shocking injuries?

    Prizza · 05/07/2018 at 19:13


BigAl_15 · 05/07/2018 at 13:59

Should I go Higgins or Neale for Fyfe? I reckon Neale is gonna be tagged for the next couple of game and Higgins has got a nice run home plus he's a good POD. Or should I go Higgins, Beams or Ward? Honestly I hate having to make these decisions

    Pod · 05/07/2018 at 16:03

    Look at the past 2 yrs Neale had basically been the free no.1 mid for that period and was tagged but he still posted solid scores

FearTheBeard · 05/07/2018 at 14:27

Hold Fyfe with either Giro/J Smith for a week and go for Macrae or go for JPK/Neale/Gaff/Bont?

Rivo · 05/07/2018 at 14:37

Have sorted the Fyfe trade now. Assuming all are playing, which of Ahern, J.Higgins, Giro or J.Smith should I use to cover Heeney this week?

    Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 15:10

    I'm gonna loop Higgins with Tim Smith if Smith plays this week Rivo. Have Keefe as my donut.

      Rivo · 05/07/2018 at 15:23

      Not a bad plan. I’ve got T.Smith also.
      I was going to field Higgins with Ahern as E as he seems to be getting more mid time.

The Ranger · 05/07/2018 at 14:38

With 6 trades left and only Ridley and Duman on the DEF bench what do we think of Duman – Mihocek?
Assuming neither get named of course.
Very sideways but Mihocek would seem to have pretty good job security now.

    Rivo · 05/07/2018 at 14:59

    Tough call Ranger. I gather Mihocek would become your D7 cover? If either Ridley or Duman play this week I would hold. Trades precious now.

      The Ranger · 05/07/2018 at 15:47

      Yeah just need some DEF cover and job security is the main thing I'm looking for .
      Fingers crossed Duman gets a gig and I don't have to trade.

        Rivo · 06/07/2018 at 13:19

        Looks like Duman & Ridley not playing. Mihocek may be a good D7 given Reid & Dunn’s injury

PizzaSafety · 05/07/2018 at 14:55

M888888 where the bloody hell is Lachie Neale???

TheGreatBozza · 05/07/2018 at 14:56

Crouch’s hand has thrown as a spanner in the works. Any sub 450k fowards or defenders we trust? Already have McLean Walter De Goey and Savage

Other option is to trade Fyfe to a sub 500k mid and get Buddy. Already have Pendles Dusty and Cogs

    Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 15:08

    Crouch will play this week Bozza, only a minor injury, coach confirmed it.

      Maverick_ · 05/07/2018 at 15:23

      He may play russty but a hand must impact his hand balling, marking and tackling… too risky for mine I can’t afford a sub par score and a chance he may do further damage. Seriously looking at beams now I think. Unless I can Be convinced the injury is nothing

      TheGreatBozza · 05/07/2018 at 15:27

      Worried about his output. Oliver struggled earlier in the year with the broken hand.

      An alternate option could be to bring in Brander for Smith or Ryan, and swing Sicily FWD this week. Making Ed Richards as my Heeney cover.

      Then next week I’d have a kitty to upgrade to a premo FWD or DEF to finish my team with 6 trades left. Doing this would allow me to get any mid this week and not have to balance out between a mid and forward. Only downside is is delays me one week of a premo score

r_calve · 05/07/2018 at 17:40

selwood, duncan, jpk or beams

    Rivo · 05/07/2018 at 17:42

    JPK for me.

Patcho · 05/07/2018 at 18:16

Fyfe/Ryan out and Heeney to bench.
Have 944k to spend. Plan is to get a M9/F7 cover player for the rest of the year if there is another Heeney type situation. Sitting top 400.
Was looking at Crouch combos but that's now out.
Gaff or Selwood and Lambert? Or
Pendels and Walters?
Will mean when Heeney comes back Walters or Devon Smith become a bench cover

RowdyBadger · 05/07/2018 at 18:17

Hmmm, JPK, Oliver or Gaff?

J.Brayshaw is my dad · 05/07/2018 at 18:18

Dusty is apparently set to play more time forward and along with Fyfe being injured, who should i bring in for Dusty and Fyfe?

r_calve · 05/07/2018 at 18:53

who will hewett tag

    J.Brayshaw is my dad · 05/07/2018 at 18:55

    Danger surely

Stupid Coach · 05/07/2018 at 20:46

Great job again Damo. Don't have Fyfe but not having him is probably one of many reasons I am doing so poorly this season. 8 trades left and 40k in the bank. Current team:
B: Simpson, Laird, Yeo, Savage, Ryan, Hurley, Keefe, Redman
M: Danger, Titch, J Kelly, Cripps Parker, Cogs, Martin, petracca, Phillips, Giro, Barry
R: Gawn, Nank, Olongo
F: Heeney, Sicily, D Smith, Buddy, Gray, Guelfi, T Smith, J Battle

I have moved Heeney to the bench. I would like to bring in McLean for Guelfi but it would also require me to make another trade (downgrade to a rookie).

Appreciate any advice on whether I should make these trades or hold onto my trades.

    Option 1
    Swap Heeney and Petracca and play Giro. Save trades
    Your backline looks fine except no cover and missing Lloyd
    As you mentioned , need to get Mclean or westhoff into forwards by trading Guelfi.

    Maybe trade phillips to rookie, guelfi (be 77) to mclean (be 76)

J.Higgins or Ahern on field at F6? T.Smith at F8.

Higgins, Gaff or Beams?

    I went Gaff. But if you're looking for a POD Beams has been very good since handing over the captaincy. Averaging 105 since round 9 and thats including his 37 against the bombers.

      Really hope you went beams…

        I did, still have Stringer but only 3 trades. Hold him or trade?

          Nice, i went with beams too and i VC'd him…Depends, do you have any other glaring holes or issues on your team apart from stringer
