Cheat Sheet | Round 10
It seems like just a few days ago I was writing a cheat sheet … because I was. I hope you’re all enjoying the Festival of Fantasy. It’s definitely test all of us, and I assume the number crunchers at Supercoach House.
As I mentioned last week, the format has change a little this week. No pretty images to confuse and confound you. Just some wise words. I’m focussing more on who you should trade in this week. I’m sure you all know when your cash cows can be led to slaughter (Avg and BE are about the same), so I won’t waste time on those players.
Tom Stewart – $443k – Avg 92, BE 31 – BUY
The most obvious target this week is Tom Stewart. He had 145 which is his highest SC score ever, and still didn’t reach his BE. He dropped $7.6k and now has a BE of 31, so should make that back prettty easily. He was in fantastic form prior to injuring his collarbone, and this is the time to get him.
Jake Lloyd – $610k – Avg 117, BE 81 – WAIT
Perennial top 6 in Defence, Lloyd had 77 in Round 1 and has tonned up every week since then, with highs of 126, 145 and 157. He’s worth the cash, and will go up in price from here. Wait a week, and make him a target next week.
Mitch Duncan – $521k – Avg 111, BE 29 – BUY
Often overlooked in the Cats when thinking of SC relevant midfielders, he’s in only 2% of teams, but Duncan rarely disappoints. Averaging 111, his lowest score (excluding when he did a hamstring against Brisbane) has been 114, while posting 130s and 140s. He’s a bargain at $521k, and will have a bye later in the season.
Travis Boak – $494k – Avg 105, BE 138 – WAIT / WATCH
Boak is having another tremendous season after last year’s effort. A couple of low scoring rounds against GWS, and the Saints, bu 159 against Freo, and 133 on Brisbane. Found a bit of his form against Melbourne last week with 104. He’ll drop a little more in price next week, but expect him to ramp up as Port make a powerful run home towards the finals.
Connor Rozee – $282k – Avg 66, BE 67 – BUY WITH CAUTION
I know some of you will be thinking I’m kidding for suggesting Rozee. I was lucky to hold him from the start, but kept him too long and lost a bit of coin, so I won’ be doing this trade … but he’s a 60pt a game player, with a massive ceiling. He’s not gonna lose any money, and could provide a more consistent cover over the byes than a $200k rookie. He has job security, and that may be just as valuable, for the same cost of a trade in and a trade out in 3-4 weeks.
Sam Draper – $123k – Avg 73, BE -22 – BUY
Don’t we all love these rookie ruckmen … ruckies. Draper looked solid against the Oscar McInerney and the Lions with a debut 73. He’s not gonna be a top 3 Ruckman this season, but if you have a non-playing R3, he could provide some cover if Gawn, Grundy or Goldy are managed or injured over the next few weeks.
Boyd Woodcock – $102k – still to debut – GO EARLY?
If you feel like going early on a rookie, Boyd Woodcock from the Power is playing his debut tonight against the Bulldogs. Played much of his junior and SANFL footy with school mate Connor Rozee, and averaged over 2 goals a game in 2018 playing in North Adelaide’s SANFL premiership team.
Anyway, good luck everyone. Stay safe. I know a vast number of the JR Community are in Victoria. The rest of us are thinking of you and crossing every appendage that things work out ok.
