Cheat Sheet | Round 18
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
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.
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.
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.
