Producing the cheat sheet each week is a learning experience. I make jokes about being the work-experience kid, but every week I’m forced to ask myself questions like WWLD (What Would Lekdog Do)? This year my eyes have been opened to how to strategically use (and more importantly ‘not’ use) trades. I’ve never had 10 trades available at this stage of the season, with most of my team complete (not perfect, but in a pretty good position).
So I’ve changed tack with the cheat sheet a little this week. Firstly, I’ve not included any downgrade targets. At this stage you probably have an existing player who can slot into D7, F7, M9, or you are gonna risk it and have no cover on your bench. Either way you are not looking at cash generating rookies, so the best bet is to get players for the lowest price possible. Secondly, you probably already know who the top 8-10 players are on each line, and there’s no point me listing them again.
What I’ve included this week is players who are possibly a little cheaper than the ultra premos, but who are in great form over the last 5 weeks or so. And most of these guys (being slightly cheaper than the top 8-10) are also PODS. As always, don’t take these recommendations as “must haves”, but if you are short of cash, or looking for a slight edge, then these guys are perfect.
Let me know if there’s someone else you think will be tearing it up over the next few weeks, and I’ll include them next week. And as always, see ya in the comments.
