Cheat Sheet | Round 16
Welcome back community, to another round in “Festival of Fantasy Part II”. At this stage of the season there’s not a lot we need to do (hopefully). You should either be trading in top line premos (i.e. top 6-8 in their positions), or PODs (high scoring pods). Most of these guys are part of that latter group.
Nick Haynes DEF – $502k – Avg 107 BE 67
Haynes has been a little flat since his bye in Round 11, but pulled out a 139 last week against Carlton to remind us of his value. He’s dropped $60k since his peak mid-season, just in time for the 82% of players who don’t have him yet to sort that out.
Brad Sheppard DEF – $486k – Avg 94 BE 69
I recommended Sheppard last week and he didn’t let me down with his highest score this season, a 121 vs Essendon. He’s been relatively consistent this year, lowest scores of 67. He’s still affordable, and lower ownership if you are looking for another POD (1.6%).
Matt Crouch MID – $590k – Avg 109 BE 59
Was BOG in the Crows first win for the season, and racked up a massive 162. His last 5 rounds have also included 112, 100, 132 and 133. Still in just over 1% of teams.
Jack Steele MID – $600k – Avg 121 BE 42
Steele has been a deadset gun this season. Only a handful of poor scores, but the ability to go BIG, and proved this on numerous occassion going over 125 eight times in 14 games. And in just 15% of teams.
Cam Guthrie MID – $544k – Avg 103 BE 69
The Ringo Starr of the Cats midfield as evidenced by his low ownership, Guthrie holds his own. A low of 58 in Round 1, but a 3 Rd Avg of 121 right now.
Robbie Gray FWD/MID – $465k – Avg 88 BE 32
A perennial SC superstar, Gray (and Boak) haven’t needed to carry their teams midfield this year. Port have a good run home with North, Essendon and Collingwood, so there is a big chance Gray could score well as he starts to get a sniff of finals. 7% of teams.
Jack Lukosius FWD/DEF – $502k – Avg 88 BE 85
The “future Crows superstar” has been on fire in the last few weeks. He has the second highest 3 rd Avg after Tom Hawkins, after scoring 135, 132, and 85. He’s projected to ton-up in all 3 of his final games.
