Cheat Sheet – Round 9

Published by Statty Matty on

It’s Round 9 everyone, and we’re only 3 weeks away from the first bye. I’m sure you’re all across your bye structure, but if not then this should be your number one priority for trades this week.

As you’d understand, try and populate your team with players who have the Rd 14 byes (and Rd 13 to a lesser extent). Then after Round 12, you can bring in the players who’ve already completed their bye and keep rolling out the Rd 13 players. And so on. It’s nothing new to most of you, but just so any newbie here might not have fully understood.

Awesome work, thanks!

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Triple downgrade this round, Carroll, Rioli, Hamilton, will all be coming into my team.

Donavan

Given they all have the Rnd 12 Bye, how many would you plan on culling before Rnd 12?

demonsdelight

I would be more inclined to look at a cat or a dog even an early eagle.Granted probably not the cash cow of Rioli but those small forwards disappear quickly NDD

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Getting Clark in next week.

Harry

also curious as to what your plan is here… since I’m thinking of doing the same…

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

None, I will be doing one downgrade and three upgrades by round 12 and they will all be from teams playing in round 12.

Harry

Hmm, clever. I think my only Rd 12 rookie I could safely upgrade by then would be Gibcus. Maybe Hayes but I’d miss out on a bit of his cash, and potentially Martin if he’s not a keeper… and Skinner lol

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I’m looking at 18/R12, 21/R13, 23/R14.

Russty_

That’s a strong showing John!…atm I’m looking at barely getting at 17-18 for 2 byes. You should come home well rotating your rookies like that.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

It wasn’t due to any planning either Russty, only really looked at it last week and I know the downgrade and upgrades that I want to do in the coming weeks and that’s how it ends up. Things could change though, rookies dropped, premiums injured, but at the moment it’s looking good.

Russty_

Must be a by-product of your fundamental philosophy….not too many player from one team, a good way to go John.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Ha Ha, yes, I think I do that without even thinking now Russty, I like an even spead across my lines and team.

holty01

Triple downgrade wow. I’m contemplating it but uncertain if I want to use another boost with the byes coming up

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I think it depends on how many rookies you have not playing or maxed out. I have O’Driscoll, JHF, MacDonald, J.Hayes, Dixon. J.Hayes is my loop, so he can stay for now, but the other four are ready to go.

TommyC99

Great read as always!
How many are bringing in Rioli and carroll this week? Ive got rookies like ward/baldwin/macdonald who could become rioli but i am petrified of his bye. THoughts fellas?

Donavan

I’m bringing in Rioli this week despite his Bye in rnd 12. I would have bought in Carroll also if his Bye round was different.
Ended up bring in Crisp & Brayshaw with the round 14 Bye, and Rioli, gives me coverage throughout the Byes, and gets me within 3 players of full-premo, with my D7(Daicos) & F7 (McCartin) also sorted.
Just Houston to bring in after his round 12 Bye, and 2 more midfielders..

demonsdelight

Yep totally agree I am thinking of an early Clarke but that is risky

Russty_

Hi Tommy, I got Carroll last week and Rioli this week, you can trade the next few weeks to make sure your byes balance, but you don’t wanna miss the good rookies like Rioil who should make 70k + next week.

demonsdelight

Good advice Russty Agonising who to choose but Rioli does look good Hoefully Cleary may go ok tonite

Russty_

Cleary’s gone ok in the first half 37 points

TRIGGA HAPPY

Did/doing the same rust bucket.

Russty_

I’m playing you twice this week bud, good luck in the rest of your matchups but bad luck against me 😉

TRIGGA HAPPY

🤣🤣 hopefully.i can be a good match up. U r having.a ripping year.

Russty_

Nice one from Treloar ya bugger! 🙂

TRIGGA HAPPY

Golden rule
Always lift against old club. 👍
now we may just have be a game on our hands. 🙊

TRIGGA HAPPY

Motlop debut confirmed for Sunday. 👍

demonsdelight

Derek will be happy only need a Zac Dawson now

Derek

Ahhh…… Motlop, one of the greatest down hill skiers. Guarantee to score 50 in last quarter when the game was already won.

Russ

Hey lads! Which is the better option to bring in my backline, Dawson or Zork?
cheers!

Russty_

Dawson for me Russ, just because of the age and potential injury factor

demonsdelight

I was wondering what happened to Zork Dawson

Russ

Hahaha!

Rick Grimes

Anyone considering Lloyd? $488k. Not looking at him as a 115 average player, happy for him to be 95-105 at that price. I see in a losing team last week he scored 116. The Swans have some toughish fixtures ahead. Plenty of chippies to be gobbled up, potentially.

MAYhem

Yes, I have undone my changes a few times today but at this stage have brought Lloyd in. He has now tonned up more times than he hasn’t this year. Can’t see his price going any lower and a great POD if he starts turning it on.

Mano

Who to trade out for Rioli, Carroll and Hamilton? I’m also thinking of bringing in Brayshaw instead of one of the bubble three but which one misses out?

Thinking of trading out Driscoll, McDonald, Rosas, Stephens or Butters?

Russty_

O’Driscoll, Stephens and Butters for Rioli, Carroll and Brayshaw

Mano

Thanks Russty. I have some faith that Butters will improve. Hope I’m not wrong. You like Carroll more than Hamilton?

Russty_

I do Mano but who knows how long either of them have in the side

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I’d trade out O’Driscoll, Rosas, Stephens, bring in the three bubble rookies and get Brayshaw next week.

Mano

Thanks. Keep McDonald? If I move him forward I can use him to loop I suppose. Or keeping Stepehens could do the same

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

D.Stephens (SYD) hasn’t played since round three, while MacDonald has only been managed. Plus MacDonald has mid/fwd, while Stephens is mid only. I’d trade Stephens first.

George

Hi all. Does anyone know the rule RE: the 5 x Trade Boosts? Can they be used during the Supercoach 4 weeks of Finals or only during the Supercoach Head to Head home and away season?
I’m used 3 and itching to use a 4th, though not if they can be saved for finals later

Russty_

Any time through the season George, this is the text…..

  • For up to 5 rounds during the season at your choosing, you can activate a Trade Boost for a 3rd trade (or 4th during the bye rounds) to use for that round. A Trade Boost can be activated for any round and will come out of your 35 total. It can be activated right through the round, all the way up until the start of the last match. It is up to you to choose whether you use all, some or none of your five available trade boosts.
George

Thanks Rusty. I better save my last 2 for the pointy end of the season then. Cheers

Shake n bake

Pendals out

demonsdelight

Pendles is out Russty

Russty_

Bugger!

holty01

Good luck all for the round. No excuses this week for me as will be home all weekend. Woo hoo

Russty_

Good luck Holty, you’re still smashing it this season as usual, my prediction is you’ll be right up there at the pointy end.

demonsdelight

Good to see both you and Gator took my advice with Cameron $) at qtr time Could well be a great pick up for you boys with Grundy out and mason a dud 2 tons last two outings and a cash cow who needs Rioli Early days but looking ok Ndd

Russty_

Great tip Neil, wouldn’t have blamed you for keeping that to yourself, thanks bud.
I went 2 up 1 down this week, Laird, Cameron and Rioli in.

Like the Laird pick mate. Hopefully he works for you

Peter

Same trades as me…looking at crisp next week but having second thoughts now..might go Dawson

holty01

Cameron I considered as well Neil but in the end he was always going to have to be traded out at some point and don’t see him making too much $ at his price.

demonsdelight

he will get dpp which could be handy on the bench later 90 is a good result Some of those rookies being bandied around simply wont cut it but the new doggies lad does look a natural For sure in my team with Clarke next week In yours and Russty’s position Holty, navigating the byes will be important and Cameron can only be a positive good luck bud except playing me cheers NDD

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Good luck to you too Holty. I’m not expecting to win many games this round due to not doing any upgrades, so will pretty much have the same team on the park as last round. Ridley and Hewett are back in, but I had good cover for them last week, so not a lot of difference.

holty01

Same as me mate. Only downgrades this week for me as well but think I’ve been fortunate with the premiums I have so hopefully they do the job again

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I’m fairly happy with my premiums, just one or two not going as well as I thought they would. My main problem is I have a few more rookies on field than other teams. Hope to catch up during the bye rounds.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Dale might be a good POD upgrade for the back line, was going to go two of Sicily/Doc/Stewart.

Mano

Yes he looks good. I was thinking Dawson or Stewart.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Bazlenka putting on a clinic.
Ol Bbqs loves playing against his old mob. 😉

Derek

Libba got his BE tonight.

this week is Butters last chance.

Big G

Andrew Brayshaw or Boak?
