Cheat Sheet | Round 15

Published by Statty Matty on

Good morning Community. As you’re aware the Byes are finally over, many of us have our teams very close to their final form. This is the downhill ride from here. Put your head down, tuck in, and hope you don’t fall off at this speed. So it’s about small changes, covering for injuries, or in many cases getting a can of petrol and burning your computer to the ground.

There are a few other players to consider this week. Rowan Marshall has been discussed a lot. I got burned on his last return from injury, so personally I’d wait a week or two. He’s got a BE of 138 so likely to come down in price a little.

Jake Stringer is a pass for me. He’s only had 5 tons in the past 4 years. Even at his low price, he’s just not worth it.

Danger is a BUY or WAIT for mine. He’s almost guaranteed to be a lock for best 6 forwards for the remainder of the season if he stays fit, but you don’t need to get him this week.

There are a couple of other rookies who may get a gig this week. Ned Reeves looked like he had been overtaken by Celgar, but Reeves domination last week in the VFL may see him get recalled for his 3rd game. I wouldn’t trade him in, but I also wouldn’t trade him out if he’s your R3.

Anyway, I’m off to get that can of petrol I was discussing, my team died a while ago, but good luck to all of you and see ya next week. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lloyd or Stewart for Jones?

David C

Stewart for mine.

David C

Hope you didn’t take my advice.

Bob Butter

Lloyd for me barely, but canโ€™t go wrong with either.

Bob Butter

Really tempted with Haynes. Watched the game last week and he seemed back to his old self. Only way to bring him in would be to trade Weightman early. If his BE is 20 odd and he averages around 60-70 the next two weeks, and Haynes BE is -1 and he averages 90-100, will Haynes go up in value significantly in comparison? Iโ€™ve never been great at calculating price increases. TIA

Lekdog

I think Weightman provides more value but Haynes more points, I’m tempted to go Bowes to Haynes myself

FearTheBeard

Lekdog. I am down to 5 trades with Moore & Impey gottago.

I am also getting Grundy back in.

11k bank. Impey is D6 so can pull trigger there to get grundy soon

Would you take Haynes for Moore to make the balance? Or cull a rookie to do it and potentially get Maynard/Whitfield/Daniels/May/McEnvoy/Houston this week? Backline is Laird, Mills, Stewart,Short, Ridley and don’t think I can fork the extra 50k from whitfield to Lloyd and get Grundy safely.

FearTheBeard

When I say Impey is F6, CCJ was benched. He can start now.

Derek

The Code to join is Group# 468645

This week there will ne NO ELIMINATIONS

However, Immunity will be awarded to the highest score for round 15.

Eliminations will start from ROUND 16.

Depending on how many teams get the memo and join the Champions Group, will depend on how many eliminations each week we have. The plan is to have the final 4 for round 23.

Well done to them who have made it this far, especially a couple of teams who are ranked on the wrong side of 20k and have managed to survive this long.

FearTheBeard

Haynes, Daniels, Maynard, Houston, May, McEvoy or spent up for Whitfield?

Mick

I really like Maynard (for SC, not a big fan of any pies).

But Haynes is great value and if he pays off then 100k+ in the bank.

And then there is Whitfield. If he remains fit, then heโ€™s probably the one to pick out of all of those.

FearTheBeard

Not sure what to do ๐Ÿ˜ could sure use the 100k but same stage Whitfield/Maynard seem so much safer?

FearTheBeard

Any concern with Moore gone what Maynards role does? How does that do his score?

Mick

I really have no idea, but I would have thought that it would help his scores. But as i said, I have no idea.

Hugh

which means it’s an uncertainty you don’t need

Lekdog

I like Maynard

Hedski

Hey fellas, no Panic Room yet but Impey is out with an ankle (I have him), could be season ending.
Good luck this round, good to have 22 players back this week.

FearTheBeard

What? Confirmed? Season ending? WOW.

Hedski

Not confirmed season ending but not looking good

Keenbutclueless

Gee. I was 50/50 on trading him to Danger. Looking at their respective break evens, I was tending to wait a week. This saves me that indecision. Bad luck for him – he was putting together a fine season. I had him as a stepping stone, but he became an โ€œalmost premoโ€.

Hedski

I need to see the teams now to know what to do, had him at F6/7 with Heeney, was gonna wait a few weeks to try to get Grundy back in (only have 4 trades!! but 22 “premos”).
It’s complicated……

Lazza

FFS this is getting ridiculous..

One Touch Wonder

This is very unusual, a serious injury to a player NOT in my team

Jobie

i traded him out last week luckily

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Holding until I have no cover.

Lekdog

Wowee! I was out yesterday and didn’t see, I almost traded Impey IN

ST1974

Great work Statty Matty. I have 10 trades left and 59K in the bank. It doesn’t look like I will get to a full premo team this season, however, I would appreciate any advise on whether I should trade this week or not.
My team is as follows:
B – Lloyd, Laird, Stewart, Ridley, May, Bianco, L Jones, Sharp
M – Oliver, Macrae, Merrett, Wines, J Kelly, Brayshaw (Free), Jordon, Poulter, Byrnes, Newcombe, A Fyfe
R – Gawn, Grundy, Reeves
F – Martin, Ziebel, Zorko, Hawkins, Walker, Madden, Waterman, Brockman.
I am looking to bring in Danger, Neale and Whitfield into my team at some point but don’t have enough cash to do that this week. I am happy to wait a week or so. I can either downgrade Jones to Foley or Briggs and upgrade Jordon or Poulter, however, it only gives me enough to get someone like Pendlebury or Joel Selwood which aren’t bad options however, I am not sure how long they can sustain their current form and if I am potentially walking into a trap.
Appreciate any advise or thoughts on trades I should do this week.

Lekdog

Did you make any trades my man?

ST1974

No, not at this stage Lekdog. Tossing up on whether to paint the fence (L Jones to Briggs and Poulter to Pendlebury) or do a double downgrade (Jones to Briggs and Poulter to Edwards) and use the cash to bring in Danger and Whitfield next week. Other option is to trade Jones to Edwards (via A Fyfe DPP) and Poulter to Greene or Hind via Brockmand DPP. Appreciate any advice on which way I should go.

Jim Sykes

hey guys.

simple one for me this week.

bring in (back) Danger (bye bye Cox) or bring in (back) Grundy (Flynn chopped)

Cheers.

Hedski

Flynn will provide better onfield scoring and make more money so Cox to Danger for me (if you can still get Grundy later)

Shawm

Looking to upgrade lachie jones to any premo defender. Already have laird, lloyd, stewart, ridley and short. Who should i go for?

Keenbutclueless

Whitfield

K.Sinny

If you have the cash Mills surely it’s gotta be Mills, definitely could go Whitfield though.

UnderWaterHaze

No love for Briggsy?

Jobie

job security’s horrible

K.Sinny

Trade Impey to Danger tonight or wait a week?

Alex

wait a week, doesn’t sound good but there’s a possibility it won’t be season ending and Danger is still leaking cash

Hedski

Depends on your cover and league situation

JugHead

Bit the bullet and did it….. with $2k to spare……I’ll know next week whether it was a good idea.
I’ve done this all year. Planned my trades all week then threw them out on selection night….

K.Sinny

Haha I did it too, when danger was on 72 at half time I was laughing.. not so much when he finished on 97.

JugHead

I still think it was the right thing to do. But high risk. Even without the injury this year, Danger isn’t the dominant player he used to be. Happy to be proven wrong, but I think he is closer to cooked than the general footy community realizes.
In an ideal world, the Cats would be giving him a lot of time forward. They don’t have that luxury now.

holty01

Good luck all this week. It’s great having 18 onfield again.

Hedski

22 is even better Holty! good luck to you too mate

holty01

Oops ๐Ÿ˜‚. Yes 22 is much better.

holty01

So Impey is injured and they are saying he may miss the rest of the season. I considered bringing Danger in for him but thought with a BE of 138, I could wait 1 week. 72 at halftime making me regret not going early.

JugHead

With only one game under the belt since coming back it will be interesting to see how much is left in the tank for the second half.

Rick Grimes

Stewart putting his hand up for worst performance of the year. FFS, I’d rage trade you if I could.

Locked and Loaded

Likewise

Derek

Not having Zorko has been a big miss this year

Russty_

Wish I’d VC’d him, at least Zork makes up for Stewarts’ shocker tonight.

TRIGGA HAPPY

As is the norm this season zorko wears the vc armband for the fire sale team if lions play early.
Damn i wish i had the cahones to start that team!

Zorko VC, rich and lyons off to a flyer again!

Russty_

Great start for your Firesale mob bud, I might take a loan of that idea for next season’s team.

TRIGGA HAPPY

I reckon im definately gonna consider it next year. Was an interesting experiment but the proof is in the pudding. Its possible could finish in top 1% if keeps smashing out big scores.

Russty_

Your regular side’s looking good for 2550 or something silly like that this week?…glad I’m not against you this week ๐Ÿ™‚

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I’m up against Trigga in ”The Rat Pack” I was 9th with a chance at a finals spot, not happening now.

TRIGGA HAPPY

There was talk of trading him out rd 14 with neale back for a warm body during the byes.

I hope for their sake thats all it was – talk. ๐Ÿ™„

JugHead

$603k with a 66 BE……….his price is also gunna go out of reach.

john

Iโ€™m in the same boat with no Zorko, first week of putting a full team on the park and before they can even get their boots on Impeyโ€™s virtually gone for the season, Stewart chokes in his 100th and Zorko puts me 174 pts behind everyone after the first game!

holty01

Zorko ๐Ÿฅณ
Stewart ๐Ÿ’ฉ

TRIGGA HAPPY

“Catching” fire sale team update Rd 14. Had to rename it.
As predicted the fire sale team charged up the ranks in rd 14 as could field 18 players (90% non roookies) in the last of the bye rounds.
Brought in Lyons for Impey and Stewart for Moore (another injury). To do this needed some cash so traded Jordon to Jia. 3 trades used in rd 14 but the two big additions didn’t let me down.
As zorko was missing (suspended) went with the latest addition as the VC with the C sitting on Parish. Turned out wasn’t needed as Mr consistent punched out a great score of 141. Not sure how lyons flies under the radar every year but he is as consistent with the odd big score as they come. So Hickey wore the capt armband.
Team scored 1958 for the round and is now 29,620 for the year which sent the team rocketing up the rankings sitting just outside 2,000 overall for the year.
Left my actual team in the rear vision mirror.

Team is below:
Def: Stewart, Rich, Doch, Lukosius, Whitfield, Mills. (Highmore, Bianco)
Mid: Tarranto, Jelly, Walsh, Lyons, Parish, Wines, JOM, Smith. (Jia, Poulter, Sharp)
Ruck: Hickey, ROB. (Flynn)
Fwd: Bolton, Zorko, Hind, Ziebell, Heeney, Buddy. (CCJ, Madden)

Trades this week.
?? probably need to trade Smith as he hasn’t come on like I thought he would.
but to who?
am open for ideas.
Titch?
or maybe laird to create the DPP swing with defense?
Or do I wait and trade in Neale next week?
Will give the swans fwds one more shot but if fail again will most likely trade to danger next week.

Rd 15.
As is always the way if Zorko plays early he normally dons the VC armband which he did last night.
Pretty good start in Rd 15 for the catching fire team with the 3 lions.
The experiment continues ….

Russty_

I’d get Laird bro…he’s in scintillating form of late.
