Cheatsheet | Pre Round 18

Published by Statty Matty on

Good morning community. We’re back with another cheat sheet to “aid you in troubled times”. As we all know too well, this game is never easy. And the recent string of season ending injuries to premos is not making it any easier, with Kelly last week and now Coniglio.

There are some pretty decent replacements for Coniglio, almost like for like: Sloane at $544k, Yeo at $539k, Merrett at $497k, Duncan at $502k, JPKennedy at $533k and Taranto at $512k. These are just suggested as straight swaps, but if you need to jump up the rankings or differentiate yourself from your cash league opponents, then they suggested below might be more up your alley.

And there are actually a few players on the bubble this week, and while we can never guarantee their job security, they look promising. Other than that, it’s much of the same for most of us. Don’t waste valuable trades, target players in the top 6, or solid PODS, and cross your fingers.

Anyway, good luck Community, keep your eyes on the prize.
Statty Matty.

    Only if you have Merrett, Yeo etc already

    Russty_ · 18/07/2019 at 19:54

    Yeh MAD MIKEY…sounds good.

Bobby · 18/07/2019 at 12:28

Hey community,

Currently ranked 241, with 6 trades left

My final trade I will be making is finally getting rid of brodie smith this week

Who is the better option, Whitfield or Hurn? (Currently have Ryan, Siciliy, Williams, Lloyd and Stewart)


    Bob Butter · 18/07/2019 at 12:41

    Whitfield for me, especially seeing as he is now somewhat of a POD. Only question is if his body holds up.

    Why · 18/07/2019 at 13:27

    Definitely Whitfield, not only a higher ceiling but cant get tagged and is incredibly cheap.

    Bye-Polar Bears · 18/07/2019 at 16:08

    I would get rid of Sicily before Smith personally.. Whitfield > Hurn

    JohnDJ59 · 20/07/2019 at 19:04

    I traded out B.Smith a few weeks back, regretted it ever since, better off keeping him and saving a trade.

FearTheBeard · 18/07/2019 at 12:47

Best Midfield to bring in for the rest of the year lads? Duncan, Trealor, Parker, JPK, Sloane, Cunnington, Zerrett, Taranto, Yeo.

I am stumped and its done my head in all week.

    MAD MIKE · 18/07/2019 at 13:07


      Russty_ · 18/07/2019 at 19:54

      I love to have a beer with Duncan.

    dontblushbaby · 18/07/2019 at 13:15

    At this time of year I look for players who are in contention for finals , I have been caught before with some players going for early surgeries and I have ran out trades , IMO I like Taranto with no Jelly for at least 2 weeks & Cogs gone for the year , good luck with who go with mate

      Fearthebeard · 18/07/2019 at 15:15

      Anyone else got any recommendations?

      1 for taranto

      1 for duncan

        Big G · 18/07/2019 at 17:44

        Sloane rarely fails

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 18/07/2019 at 16:52

    My pick – Sloane or Treloar. Both in great form and top 8 teams. But I also like Zerrett and Duncan as cheaper options if you need to save some cash.

      Swoopsta · 19/07/2019 at 11:45


    Fearthebeard · 18/07/2019 at 17:55

    1 duncan
    1 Sloane
    1 trealor
    1 Taranto


      Russty_ · 18/07/2019 at 19:53


Caleb · 18/07/2019 at 13:24

I have two trades left, have a full team. but still want to trade Brayshaw, do I trade or not? Currently have no cover in forward or ruck and Logue is in my defence. Should I do one trade for him?

    Sure · 18/07/2019 at 13:28

    Is Logue your cover or your D6?

    Swans2012 · 18/07/2019 at 14:20

    I’m in a similar situation with logue d7 and brayshaw m8, but I’ve got a bit of forward and ruck cover (z Clarke and setterfield). I’ve got 3 trades left and unfortunately think we’ve got to hold him at least for now. If the carnage of the last few weeks is anything to go by we need to save a few trades….. I am still tempted to trade him to Greene though….

      Caleb · 18/07/2019 at 16:30

      greene was the only person I was thinking, but forward PODS never seem to work

Caleb · 18/07/2019 at 13:29

No, Logue is my cover.

Mikeee · 18/07/2019 at 13:56

That Newman…<img src="; width="1"/>

xxxtentacionsdog · 18/07/2019 at 15:25

ive currently got a full side with 5 trades left but no bench cover in the backline, would it be smart to go coniglio and chol to zorko and birchall via dpp to get a premium i otherwise wouldnt be able to afford with a sideswap and bench cover?

    Billo · 19/07/2019 at 09:46

    Good trades

Steeeve · 18/07/2019 at 15:34

Last week's cheat sheet suggested Dylan Shiel. I had, separate to said cheat sheet, already decided to bring him in. We were both very very wrong 🙁

    Daley boy · 18/07/2019 at 20:13

    That’s pretty much par for the course this season. Unfortunately the cheat sheet is not what it used to be. Can’t help but hang out for it each week still. I have just learnt not to follow it that much.

      Russty_ · 18/07/2019 at 20:16

      It's just suggestions and possibilities though, the fun in the game is making your own calls in the end.
      If you don't have your team sorted out by now, the Cheet sheet ain't gonna help you.
      Nice work Statty Matty…I would trade several of those guys in…if I had trades lol.

redherringfc · 18/07/2019 at 17:18

What do people think about Birchall?

I need to wait another week to get Whitfield, which means I end up fielding Answerth or Logue this week.

Birchall is only 205k. It is only to put him on the field this week, but he could be outstanding cover after that. Leaves me with 5 trades, but I need 2 next week to get Whitfield, then I’ll be as “full premium” as I’m going to get.

    Big G · 18/07/2019 at 17:46

    Always good for a 70 or 80 if that's what you are looking for..

      redherringfc · 18/07/2019 at 22:37

      Pretty much what I need. but I hope he can pump out a big score this week.

        Russty_ · 18/07/2019 at 22:49

        I reckon he's worth getting in RH…did pretty well in his return game.

          WizzFizz · 19/07/2019 at 06:42

          Risk of being given a spell after a few games is probably pretty high.

pat cripps · 18/07/2019 at 18:40

do i bring in taranto or treloar for cogs this week ?
treloar in great form but taranto could turn it on with kelly and cogs out…
thoughts ?

Ryan · 18/07/2019 at 18:50

Taranto or Duncan?

    Russty_ · 18/07/2019 at 19:53


The crumbler · 18/07/2019 at 18:54

Surely fyfes only out a week?!

    Lazza · 18/07/2019 at 19:11

    Anyone know what the op was for?
    With Cogs and Fyfe out there are some hard decisions to make … and heaven help those with both and who are holding Jelly.

      The crumbler · 18/07/2019 at 19:13

      Infected elbow apparently

        Russty_ · 18/07/2019 at 19:53

        Probably got infected from that stinky stocking he wears on it.

    Docker Doctor · 18/07/2019 at 19:18

    Have heard whispers that Fyfe will miss the rest of the season. Same bloke told me hogan would go to freo half way through last year so pretty reliable

      Fearthebeard · 18/07/2019 at 19:52

      Better Not be!!!

      The crumbler · 18/07/2019 at 20:02

      Think you may be onto something. Just read it's a serious infection and it's unconfirmed when he will be back. Think ill be up all night reversing and revising lol

        Blueboy · 18/07/2019 at 23:10

        Heard Fyfe had antibiotic treatment and is out for a week only – anyones guess really

John · 18/07/2019 at 19:02

Trade Cogs to Parker or Oliver and why?

    The crumbler · 18/07/2019 at 19:16

    Parker.. better run home and is trust him to be more consistent

Lazza · 18/07/2019 at 19:24

Is Bont a certain starter? Could be mayhem this week..

Lekdog · 18/07/2019 at 20:01

We are LIVE! Let's talk Fyfe! (link: #supercoach

Rick · 18/07/2019 at 21:18

Collingwood fans – how's Quaynor's JS?

    Swoopsta · 19/07/2019 at 11:44

    Looking better with all our injuries. may hold his spot for few more weeks. at least few weeks till D Moore is back.

John · 18/07/2019 at 22:27

Rampe as a pod or Whitfield for last Defender spot

    redherringfc · 18/07/2019 at 22:34


    A pod is only any good if they will regularly outscore the other and I don’t see this happening.

What_Bear · 19/07/2019 at 00:22

    DavidC · 19/07/2019 at 06:44

Davo · 19/07/2019 at 09:39

Hi Community, looking to replace Coniglio with either Sloane, Treloar, Zorko, Parker or Merrett. Which one guys? Cheers.

    Rick · 19/07/2019 at 12:00


Bill · 19/07/2019 at 22:36

tough week, i'm undecided at the moment <img src="; width="1"/>

Haze · 20/07/2019 at 23:10

Community, need help with captain decision.

Playing for league win and must win this week and it's all going to come down to my captain choice. Opponent already has Grundy 157 score as captain, so do I go Gawn, MacRae, or run the gauntlet with Dunkley??? Just need to come close to a 150 CAPT score to match Grundy to take the win…..
