Cheat sheet | Round 8
Good afternoon Community. The Cheat Sheet is back as we wade through the swamp that is Supercoach 2020 … when I say swamp, I mean more Shrek, less Lord of the Rings.
There was obviously some good news from the Supercoach admins this week, with the provision of 4 extra trades and the use of 3 trades per round for Rounds 9-12. This was a huge bonus and allows us a bit more flexibility to chase quick cash. But we still need to be mindful of the same strategies we stick to every year.
We could be tempted to try some left field trades, like trade Grundy up to Gawn. It’s only $100k, and on average will net you 20pts (40 if you captain him). I’m not saying this is a great trade. Great trades should be viewed with hindsight. For example, some genius in the top 50 trades Lachie Neale out last week. I on the other hand made him my Captain. 🙁
One last thing we need to (re)consider is “bye structure”. In normal seasons we think about this from the start of the season, and consider it with every trade we made. This year after CV19 shut the season down we all assumed there’d be no byes … until this week. So start looking at teams with late byes (plus Melbourne and Essendon) to trade in now to provide coverage over the byes.
Anyway, good luck this week everyone.
