Cheat Sheet | Round 18

Published by Statty Matty on

Good afternoon community. Sorry for the delay, life gets in the way of our hobbies sometimes.

Nothing new here. It’s the business end of the season. Teams are almost finalised, trades are limited. Again I’ve looked for some value picks for you this week. Trade out your cash cows, bring in some consistent or risky scorers. Fortune favours the brave.

As the next few weeks go on, I might look at some different content or different players. possibly a review of some of my selections. If there’s something you’d like to see next week, let me know in the comments.

Thanks again,
Statty Matty.

ST1974

Great work again Matty. I am looking to upgrade Jordon this week as . There are so many options, it is making my head spin. I already have Macrae, Merrett, Wines, Oliver and J Kelly. Who should I bring in out of Walsh, Neale, Fyfe or Adams?

ST1974

Can also afford TMitch and Petracca.

Russty_

Petracca ST, he can rip games apart when he gets excited.

Red

If you have the $$ then you could look at Darcy Parish. He went under 100 for the first time last week for 11 rounds and last time he went under 100 he backed it up with a 160 and then another 10 (mostly massive) scores over 100. A definite captaincy option every week, especially this one.

Jack Steele is also expensive, but going great guns. Tom Mitchell looks like good value at the moment.

ST1974

Thanks Red. Unfortunately, just don’t have enough cash for either Parish or Steele. My initial thought was to go for Walsh, however, I agree that Mitchell is good value and I also think that Petracca could also be good value.

Russty_

I whacked Parish into my draft side at the start of the season from the free agency pool.
thought, oh yeah well he’s an 85 average career player but maybe he improves a bit this year?…well he’s catapulted my weekly scoring to be right up there to the point where my team is inside the top 150.
That’s about the only one small highlight of my SC year this year lol

Lekdog

Walsh or Adams for mine, Adams for value

TommyC99

Shai Bolton community?

Red

Scores in the 40’s, 50’s and 80’s in the last 3 weeks does not look too good.

That’s not a good form line, but it is on an upward trend. Since the Tigers won’t be playing the high quality of the Saints or Suns (44 and 59, I think) in the run home, maybe he could be a value pickup.

TRIGGA HAPPY

His low scores were impacted by meatball back in the mids. Now he is injured again scoring should improve

Lekdog

Should improve with the sides outs…hard to say though

Pieman

Thinking Macrae/zorko into merrett for C this week. Whats everyone else doing?

I’ve gone Macrae into Merrett but may change the C to to Walsh if I bring him in.

Russty_

Whacked the VC on Danger, hoping he can get one more goal or two 🙂

Kat

Gone danger this week as well Russty so hoping it works out. Was either Zorko or Danger as have no one to loop in the Sat/Sun games

Russty_

Good luck to both of us Kat :), he’s sittin on 129 with 5 mins to go, reckon I’ll be taking it…every time I get greedy it backfires.

Kat

Yep I’m taking it Russty. Had too many failures lately not to. 130+ will do me.

Russty_

Yep 134 is very serviceable, thought he might’ve got to 135 but not to be. It gives a certain peace of mind to get it done in game one for the week. Good luck for the rest of the week Kat.

Lekdog

well done!

Lekdog

Gawn into Grundy I think

dontblushbaby

Is their Life in Fyfe, I hope so, I’m taking the punt

Lekdog

I almost did the same thing, flipped to Guthrie before the bounce

holty01

Good luck all and Darcy, please stop it

Russty_

Hodor down, looks like he’s got a sore knee.

UnderWaterHaze

Dunkley or Neale? Playing for league and no else has Dunkley, a couple have Neale.

Russty_

Bit of a risk with Dunks, he might be pretty rusty.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Pun intended? 😜

UnderWaterHaze

That’s what I’m thinking. Neale this week, cash in next week, Dunks first week of finals…. But … Dunks had the now achievable BE I think

Lekdog

Dunks, yolo

Dave2008

10 trades left, 306 500 in the bank. 2 mids and 1 forward needed. Timing my run for league finals. Thinking Jordan and Highmore out for Degoey and Miginivan via dpp Martin this week. Then with 476k in the bank, Berry to Guthrie then Bramble to Bont. Leaves team as

D Lloyd Stewart Williams Daniel May Laird (Kozi rookie)
M McCrae Merret Oliver Merrret Bont Guthrie Taranto Pendles (Bianco Rookies)
R Grundy Gawn (Reeves)
F Danger Martin Ziebell Marshall Degoey Sidey (McCrae Henry)

6 trades left to upgrade or build better reserves.
Any thoughts most appreciated!

Dave2008

Two Merrets in the team, one should be Kelly.

Russty_

What a great position you’re in Dave, I won’t give advice cause I’m sucking this year.
You’ll make the right call.

Dave2008

Thanks Rusty my overall rank is not great but happy with 10 trades !

Lekdog

Trades look solid! Good side!

Dave2008

Thanks Lekdog! Love the podcasts I’m in Sweden and always tune in.

Lekdog

Amazing Dave! Great to have an international listener!

Lachie

Would love some opinions 🙂
Trading Langford and Taranto too:
Option 1: wines & Marshall
Option 2: Parker/Simpkin & de goey

Russty_

1 for me Lachie, just don’t trust De Goey to be consistent. Simpkin’s in some good form but he also can drop away badly.

Lachie

Thank you russty .
How do we think Coniglio being back will affect Taranto? Worth the trade up to wines? Ollie looks alot more consistent and Coniglio back worries me

Russty_

Yeah Wines is in some nice form, you need guys this time of year who can knock out some big ones for ya…Taranto’s been a bit meh again this year. If you have the trades to spare I would.

Lachie

Thanks again 🙂

Maverick

1 for me, Lachie. Wines is having a huge year a serious Brownlow contender and a higher floor than Simpkin. Marshall IF he stays fit with some more time in the Ruck can go 110+ for the remainder of the season he’s done it before.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Why are you trading tarranto?
He has had one bad game.
If you need to trade him option 1

Lachie

The Coniglio factor I think he plays predominantly forward and stinks it up from here on

Lekdog

1 for me!

Russty_

Hey Paul (Tophawks), are you doing any trades n Jock’s Jungleland draft this week mate?…your prediction is looking a bit low 😉
P.S, you’re in the finals. 😉

Lachie

Will Coniglio back negatively affect Taranto?

Lekdog

In theory, shouldn’t impact…in practice no idea

Corey

Hey Community, finishing my team this week I have 7 trades left
do I upgrade Bianco to Taylor Adams and bring in Reeves for Madden and swing J.Edwards onto my forward bench with Marshall already as my F6 with 60k left over
or
trade Bianco to Walsh and madden to a donut rookie and have no left over cash

Maverick

I’d try keep your ruck forward swing, Corey. I don’t like Adams durability but no denying his scoring ability is there anyone else you like around that price or you locked in him? Matty Parker might be a good shout in ya fwd line I think he will fit right in at the tiges.

Corey

Well if I go Matty Parker or Reeves I can’t afford Walsh and have to go with Adams or lower maybe Fyfe

Maverick

Okay Well thankfully you’ve already missed Fyfe he played last night and looked horrible that shoulder is giving him trouble still. You have 5 trades after this week so should be plenty if Adams goes down with injury. Go with a Matty Parker/reeves and Adams. An Alternative is Dunstan whose good value.

Corey

Geez I like Dunstan picked him up from the waivers in my draft League he’s been good move of the season was picking up Parish as a free agent when Shiel went down with injury! Shame I didn’t have the balls to do it in Classic

Corey

i reckon Adam’s just ahead of Dunstan cause of ceiling?

Maverick

Agree. More favourable draw too than St Kilda

DEESNUTSRBIG

Have to trade out CCJ and L.Edwards for Marshall and a M/F rookie.
Have stuff all cover on the pine, can anyone recommend a 102k M/F that has some chance of getting a game at any stage for the run home?

Lekdog

Ginnivan?

demonsdelight

agree with Lek Ginnevan looked good last week kicked a few snags and competes well .looks likely NDD

Manu

I have Langford and can afford Dunkley. Should I make the trade?

Lekdog

Do it!

dontblushbaby

P.Cripps to miss this week for those who still have him

ST1974

Is Walsh likely to cop more attention and will it affect his scoring ability with Cripps out and should I bring in Petracca or Mitchell instead
