Cheat Sheet | Round 18

Published by Statty Matty on

Afternoon Community. I’ve been so relaxed from listening to Jock, Crouching and Higgo, I nearly forgot to write out a cheat sheet this week.

I know that for most of us, the season is over, and those of you either fighting out your GF or pushing for position are all pretty well set, but if you’re not here’s some last minute suggestions

Defenders

Jack Crisp – $534k – Jack’s been in the top 6 defenders in previous seasons, and may not have had his best season, but he’s finishing well. Last 3 rounds have been 125, 134 and 138.

Jake Lloyd – $647k – Always in the top 6, and this year is no exception. Has tonned up in every single round this year, except Round 1. Expensive, but worth it.

Tom Barass – $470k – Barass seems to be enjoying the absence of McGovern in the West Coast backline. Definitely a riskier pick that Lloyd or Crisp, but has 110, 112, and 144 for his last 3 rounds.

Midfielders

You can throw a rug over a dozen midfielders who will get you big scores this week. Here’s a few you may not have considered.

Jarryd Lyons – $576k – Often plays second fiddle to Laichie Neale in the press, but Lyons is no slouch. 127pts for a 3 Round Avg, and still in only 4.5% of teams.

Tom Rockliff – $551k – The “fantasy pig” has had his snout in the trough in recent week. 123 3 Round Avg, consisting of 110, 119 and 142 against the Dons last week.

Forwards

Blake Acres – $440k – Acres has been in fine form since slotting back into the team, with 129, 113 and 117 in the last 3 weeks. Definitely a lower priced option and only 1.9% ownership.

Hugh Greenwood – $539k – Greenwood has really stuck it up the Crows this season, and I expect him to finish strong against the Hawks.

Liam Ryan – $442k – Another lower priced option in the forward line. Ryan’s been averaging 109 in the last 3 weeks, and should punish Norths this weekend.

Well that’s it for cheat sheets for this whirlwind of a season. We’ll all look back at this year and either love it or hate it.

Right now I don’t look at the season with fondness. The Crows have struggled, I’ve made some dumb SC choices, and there’s been limited time between rounds to create content and make better choices.

Good luck to everyone this week, and thanks to the rest of the JR crew for their support. Lek, Patch, Damo, Barron, Kevin, Foz and Clarkey, maybe next year we’ll be in the same state at some point in time and be able to catch up for a beer.

Any news on whether Doch will play this week as my trades hinge on it. If he is out, I am thinking of trading him to Daniel after I trade Coleman to Jack Buckley. Don’t have much cash left so have to paint the fence instead of doing a double upgrade.

Also, do i put the VC on Neale and the C on Bont or what are the best options if you don’t have Oliver or Gawn.

DEESNUTSRBIG

OUT OUT OUT (see injury update round 18 Carlton website, 54sec video) Admitted they got it wrong playing him last week – he probably would have missed a week or two if it was in the middle of the season.

Russty_

Well that’s definitive!…thanks Dees, I’m managing my mates’ squad so I might go Doch to Houston and hope he doesn’t have a problem this week…sorry about the lame dad joke.

ST1974

Hahaha. Hope Houston does not cause a problem for your mates team either. I am tossing up whether to keep Doch and using Watson or Greaves as cover or trade him out. My team is pretty much complete and I don’t have much cash left but I still have two trades left. My other option would be to trade Coleman and upgrade Rivers who is on my midfield bench to another premo mid or forward and try and get them on the field.

ST1974

Thanks Dees. Looks like Doch may have to go unless I use Watson or Greaves as cover and use my trades elsewhere.

DEESNUTSRBIG

Tim Kelly – win you a prelim and lose you a GF!

Russty_

He thought he’d just play like shit tonight and not get involved much, Duggan did more than him in the midfield and he’s a defender..and has a stupid bogan haircut.

Lekdog

Gee whiz, couldn’t believe what I was seeing

DEESNUTSRBIG

Bulldogs VS Dockers…
The Battle of the buns, The Battle of the man-buns…
Natalie Fyfe VS Marcy Bontempelli…
There gonna go bun on bun…
Where KING BUN will be crowned…
The winner of the matchup will be crowned king-bun and the loser known as queen-bun…
Good bun everyone…

Russty_

Hahahah I think Jed Anderson is KING BUN this week πŸ™‚
P.S I like steamed buns.

What a bun Anderson has! Wowee

Russty_

How’s the score this week Lek?…I had him in my draft side that got knocked out last week doh!

FearTheBeard

Daniel Rich for Doch?

Lekdog

Do it!

Bells

Ricardi (onfield) to Acres and no more trades left or,
Have 1 trade left for a surprise out on the Sunday/Monday games?

The Ranger

Gotta go all in on the last round Bells

ST1974

Do I trade Coleman or Rivers to Jack Buckley and then Doch to Daniel or Crisp. Half an hour to decide on the first trade.

Thoughts on VC and C – Neale into Bont or Neale into Lloyd. I don’t have Oliver or Gawn.

Russty_

What did you end up doing ST?..Buckley’s a big dud so far…5 points nearing the 3Q time, Neale into Bont sounds good or the seagull Lloyd.

ST1974

Thanks Russty. I brought in Buckley as I needed to generate some extra cash to trade Doc to Daniel or Crisp. Thankfully he is on my bench and fingers crossed I won’t have to use him. Otherwise, I have coverage for Doch in the form of Greaves if I am forced to use my last trade to cover a late out. Wishing I had put the VC on Steele after the late withdrawal of De Boar.

Russty_

Yeah mate, feel that ..I did vc Steele but it didn’t matter cause I had too many injuries at the end and no trades lol

The Lost Boys

Would you take Gawns 121 or gamble on either Lloyd or Neale to beat that?

FearTheBeard

My question too. My opp took Gawn. Tight game.

Derek

In GF week you don’t take 121

I stuck the VC on Oliver. At half time it looked a great move. But he only managed 38 in the second half

Prob go Neale

The Lost Boys

Good point! I’m worried about a Curnow tag on Neale, and he only got 50 or 60 odd last round….

FearTheBeard

Been worried about the Curnow tag myself. Still sitting on Neale for now 😐

I’m up 55. He has had Gawn as captain. Though has 2 less played.

Right now got Neale as cap, Rich, B Smith, A Brayshaw

VS

Laird, Neale, Greaves, Stewart, Hunter, Maynard.

So really 5 vs 6 with a 55 lead. I kinda feel I gotta roll with Neale as I don’t think playing it safe with 55 point lead for those players is enough? Thoughts?

FearTheBeard

Just looking if I take Gawn it gives me 170+ lead. Laird & Greaves should see us equal?

Leaves me with Rich, B Smith, A Brayshaw VS Stewart, Hunter, Maynard for the win?

:O

Thoughts?

FearTheBeard

ANYONE? lol. I got like 40 mins for my grand final and can’t decide now I’ve said it like that.

The Lost Boys

Think with that lead I’d probably play it safe and take Gawns score. I’m gonna gamble on Neale as I’m looking at losing otherwise.

FearTheBeard

170 lead wont last.

Laird is on 96 RIGHT now. Say Greaves gets 70.

Thats it gone.

So would leave me with
Rich, B Smith, A Brayshaw
VS
Stewart, Hunter, Maynard

What ya reckon? LOL. 20 mins to go 😐

The Lost Boys

Yeah actually good point. Gamble it is i think – join the club πŸ™‚

FearTheBeard

Gamble it is. LETS GO NEALE LEAD ME TO VICTORY! RICH YOU TOO!

The Lost Boys

Looking good at half time πŸ™‚

Derek

Who would have thought Rich would have been the last round hero

Russty_

Well shiyaaaatt mate, 2 pretty bloody awesome choices there in hindsight πŸ˜‰

Russty_

Good point Derek, gotta go for gold and not make decisions based on if someone ‘might’ get tagged, Neale was rampant with no tag in sight.

ST1974

Well it looks like I have not just been hit by a couple of spanners but an entire toolbox. My decision to trade Coleman to Buckley has backfired. Walters is out so Buckley is my only cover and Watson who was going to be my cover for Doch has been omitted and I failed to put the E on Perez since he scored 11 last week. Do I trade Doc to Daniel as I planned and just take 29 from Buckley, trade Walters and cop a zero or just curl up in the foetal position and cry myself to sleep.

FearTheBeard

As many warm bodies as possible bud.

ST1974

Thanks Fear. Good advice. Looks like Doch to Daniel it is and hope that I can make up the difference elsewhere.

FearTheBeard

Your welcome. Read above and answer my riddle LOL. I got 15 minutes!

Russty_

Jeez mate, imagine if you’d kept Doc and taken Greave’s backup and traded Walters out instead?..these things are un-knowable though at the time.

Lazza

Cripps injury is going to help the General big time .

The Ranger

How’s that? All of the top 10 have Cripps

Lazza

Oh, I Didn’t think General had him .. hmm

Russty_

He had him and Walters last week, not sure if he had 2 trades left to deal with it this week though. Hope he wins πŸ™‚

gator59

How in the f%^k can Champion Data love Dangerfield so FuC*(G much … F&*k all possies a few goals and sits on 144 .. What a joke this game is

Lazza

With you Gator.. 14 possessions, 4 tackles and 3 goals .. 170 is just crap .. if had kicked them all in the 1st qtr he’d be on 80 at best .. major influence in winning the game but a100 point bonus .. nuh

gator59

Have a look at Fyfe Lazza at half time same amount of possies and 2 goals and only 58 SC points.. At the same time Danger was sitting around 110 points.. Totally wrong

Russty_

Hard to take if you’re up against that this week Gat…they’re definitely a bit over excitable when it comes to the ‘game importance’ side of things I feel.
If they were fully transparent about the way they decide scores, there wouldn’t be so much contention.

Lazza

Yeh… the Tiger’s performances underline the flaws in SC scoring .. week in week out they score lowest but win the game ..

Lazza

Need Boak to score 74 to win my GF .. πŸ™

Russty_

I reckon you’ll get there Lazza, keeping me fingies crossed for ya mate.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Well done Shake. πŸ‘
Champion of the Happy.Place. πŸ†
You pushed him all the way gator gr8 final.
