Cheat Sheet – Round 14
The last week of the bye rounds is upon us, and they can’t come soon enough for me. I can’t wait to have 22 players plus emergencies to field a team each week.
There are very few options for rookies this week, but that’s pretty normal for this time of the season. There’s rumours that Massimo D’Ambrosio and Byan Teakle may debut for Essendon and Port respectively, but that will need to wait for teams later this afternoon.
Most coaches will be at full premo by now, with maybe a few minor MPR upgrades to make, so I’ve written the cheat sheet that way. A few unfortunate injuries to premos also, most obvious is ankle injury to Max Gawn. But there are always options for sideways trades.
There are some great PODs out there too (less than 5% ownership, or fallen premos less than 15% are rough numbers), but there’s no point picking someone with low ownership if they don’t score as well or better than their counterparts. Bailey Dale and Tom Liberatore are great examples of this. Top 6-8 players in their position, low ownership and a history of being consistent high scorers. These are the players who will help you jump in rank, and beat your opponents in cash leagues.
Anyway, that’s enough lecturing from me for a week. Have a great week everyone.
