AFL supercoach 2013 NAB 3

Round 2 of the NAB Cup has come and gone – some things have become clearer to us as elite fantasy footballers, but as always more questions have been thrown our way.

Sit back, relax and soak in the Supercoach and AFL Fantasy wisdom as Higgo, Crouching and I walk you through another weekend of fantasy football pre season fodder.

Some significant discussions this evening;

  • Travis Varcoe.. too risky and/or awkward at his price?
  • Ruck structure
  • Kan-ye Mitchel-son. And why you need to lock him into your midfield quick smart
  • Jed Lamb from Sydney bobs up as a rookie forward option
  • The Basted Chicken and stacks more…

How did you see NAB Cup round 2 from a fantasy perspective folks?

    love the new 'lock or not' segment fellas.

    another top job.

    cheers

  2. Smittzzy says:

    I know he didnt play this weekend but thoughts on Allen Christenson as a dark horse?

    • Stefan says:

      I have computed an analysis of all 2012 players. A few facts on Allen Christenson for you:

      1. Ranked 42nd as a forward in 2012 SC
      2. Has a 2 year SC average of 72.9
      3. A standard deviation of 10.0 for 2011 and 2012 average
      4. Has an upward trend of 14.13 average from 2011 to 2012

      I think he is a good option based on stats.

      If he continues the way he is going based on average he could average 87.03 for 2013.

      • G unit says:

        He is a gun, should of gotten a mention in mid-price list Jock!

        • kodesz says:

          unique pick that could give high rewards!

          • dools says:

            Hahhaahhahha Cristenson is a smokey but at 400K well you have a go if you have 'em !!
            IIMO definate LOCK plays all over the park , in top 22 has some injury moments but he is a Nugget, hopefully gold $Kaaakinng

  3. Benno says:

    Great podcast as always boys, making me reconsider my team yet again! Just curious, when you say you are possibly going 6-4 in the mids, are you saying 6 elite premiums around $600K+? or sticking a few of the elites along with a couple of potential breakout players inbetween $500-600K? Cheers boys

  4. PluggersGuts says:

    Great job again gentleman. I'm with you Jock on Sippa. Absolute gun and my number 1 prediction for a break out forward this year. Get on board early I say.

    • SCaddict says:

      Still want to see more from Siposs before I make way for him in my crowded foward line of mid pricers. Karnezis is tempting me more at this stage though certainly far from a lock.

      • Kev says:

        Siposs hurt his ribs yesterday? Can't find any news about it. Anyone know anything?

        • Shimma says:

          dont think it was anything big, was at the match and didnt even notice an injury intil I came home

        • PluggersGuts says:

          G'day Kev. He copped a bit of a knock. I don't think it was anything serious. I'll let you know if I hear anything further.

      • PluggersGuts says:

        Yeah I hear ya there mate. Karnezis has definately popped his head up. I've had an eye on Siposs for a few seasons now down at the Zebras and make no mistake he's a gun. Over 90% efficiency yesterday. I'm with the humble genius on this one, but certainly other options to consider.

        • SCaddict says:

          Indeed Siposs is definitely one I'm still considering and if he has a big game this weekend he may very well push his way back into my team.

          Although that said if Karnezis has another blinder this time against the Pies he will be bloody lock he he!

  5. TheBIGShot says:

    love: Lock or NOT!!! Dustin Martin NOT. (terrible history of consistent application)
    Wobbly on: Teen Wolf. Luey.
    Great work Jock et al.

    • SCaddict says:

      Never had Dusty in my team before but geez I reckon this could be the year. Lock for me.

    • PluggersGuts says:

      Reports from Hardwick earlier in the pre season were that Dusty had been working hard on his tank to curb those late game fade outs and he's expecting that Dusty will be a "very, very good player" for the tigers this year. Lol. He looked bloody good over the weekend tho didn't he. 61 SC points in the first half…

  6. Sean says:

    Where can i find supercoach scores for the nab cup????

  7. SCaddict says:

    Is Kane Lucas on anyone's radar? Mick seems to be a believer in him and he racked up a decent amount of the pill on the weekend.

    I'm weighing him up against Whitfield and Toumpas at similar dollars. Wines and K.Stevens are quickly approaching lock status in my team so can only squeeze in one more in my rookie midfield madness strategy as K.Mitchell. O'Meara and Viney are already dead set certainties (barring injuries).

    • kodesz says:

      He's been on mine for a while mate! Not settled as of yet but could be a great POD if he has a breakout year.

      • SCaddict says:

        He's not in my team at the moment as there are probably few cheaper/better options in the midfield but I'm following his form and where Mick plays him closely.

  8. DDJ says:

    Jock, How about Andrejs Everitt?
    Thought his game was quite good for someone priced $275,500. What do you reckon?

    • Kev says:

      Not in Sydney's best 22. Never played more than 12 games in a season (even at the dogs). Was subbed 5 times last year. Avoid

  9. leigh says:

    I hope lock or not has not replaced slipper. When slipper say me YOU SHUTUP AND LISTEN

  10. Super_rabbit says:

    Where are you guys getting supercoach points from? I can’t gind them anywhere!!

  11. Tomy gun says:

    What does everyone think of Matty spahnger from the hawks cheap as chips and could easily slot into the backline and take a good foward thoughts everyone ???

    • JJFyzz says:

      I don’t actually want any true backmen in my backline. I don’t think they score high enough. Trying to find floaters, midfieders, rather than the forward stopper.

      • Te Ninja says:

        Agree with JJ. I reckon start there if you’re looking for points. Then your pure backliners to find a POD. Not convinced Spangher will be one this year SC points wise.

  12. Aaron says:

    Geez Higgo sounds like Malcom Blight

  13. JJFyzz says:

    Loving the Lock or Not section boys. Great following you on Twitter too!!!

  14. Kev says:

    Kersten kicked 3 goals from 10 possies on saturday. Is there a spot for him in geelong's best 22?

    • Smittzzy says:

      Geelong have enough in forward and midfield and rookies like Horlin Smith are ahead of him, Daniel Menzal gets fit and that's another spot gone for him. Doubtful he will play until late in the season unless extensive injuries.

      • kodesz says:

        not for me mate, i'm a geelong fan myself and he's got a few seasons before he might crack the side.

  15. team changa says:

    hey guys can you please tell me where your finding supercoach scores for nab cup? i dont want dream team scores i want supercoach scores please!!! THANK YOU

  16. @MRB37 says:

    Koby Stevens seems a much better option than picking Wines or Toumpas. You know the kid has talent, and he's had 4 seasons under his belt, so that might remove the rookie wall that normally hits the young kids.

    Hard to judge Tex and Jerka on the 1 game there. The forward entry was terrible and they went back to the bomb it into the 50 style again, which never really works. Plus it's not the first time Adelaide has been toweled up by Geelong either (Tex scored 39 against them at Simonds last year). Still keeping Tex, but Jerka is out for now.

    • SCaddict says:

      Yes Stevens is very close to reaching lock status in my team and would slightly prefer him over Wines. But luckily I have room in my midfield for two at that price so both will very likely be in my team come Rd1.

      • Stuart says:

        Stevens over Wines?? Based on what?? Certainly not their respective performances over the weekend!!

        • jimbotraralgon says:

          I will be looking at a high end rookie as well…what about toumpas?

          cheers

        • SCaddict says:

          Just reckon Koby has a bigger tank being 3 years older with more pre-seasons under his belt.

          Don't get me wrong I reckon they'll both have productive seasons and hence why I have both of them in my squad. I don't think you can go wrong picking either. Only time will tell which one will be better.

          • PluggersGuts says:

            Koby was very impressive in his days in the WAFL folks. Absolute ball magnet, regularly racking up 35-40 possessions. Starved of opportunities at West Coast but will get the game time with the doggies. Lock! I've got Wines in my side at this stage.

  17. Emre says:

    Hey Jock, what your thoughts on Big Orren Stephenson. He's priced at $320,400 and has a break even of -17. If he gets games im thinking of using him to generate a bit of cash.

    • Kev says:

      Nah, still on the rookie list. Likely only to be elevated if big Maric goes down with a LTI. Better ruck options out there for making cash

    • SCaddict says:

      Hey Emre where are you getting the BE of -17 from? It's actually 59 so are you sure you're not looking at last year figures or something??

        • SCaddict says:

          Yeah there is something messed up with Footywires BE at the moment. Not sure if it is some carryover effect from last year. If you click on the Supercoach scores link on that page you'll see how strange the figure look.

          The whole idea of BE at the very start of the season is that it's based solely on price. So a $320,400 player has BE of 59, a player valued at $324,500 has a BE of 60 etc.

          Once the season starts is when the BEs begin to change.

    • jimbotraralgon says:

      the big O is a big danger sign for supercoach. stay way fella.

      cheers

  18. King says:

    Great pod cast guys

    Looking for serious Supercoaches…

    All welcome… Cheers KM..

  19. Les says:

    josh thomas from collingwood dominated and even scott pendlebury talked him up on facebook could be a player to trade in mid season for som $$$

  20. David Ruddick says:

    Great podcast again lads!!! Love listening to it on my Iphone while I aimlessly stroll the streets of Abbotsford ( near CUB ) at lunchtime.

  21. Will says:

    Hey jock,
    What do you think of my team, suggestions or improvements needed
    DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Waters, Birchall, Goodes, Vlaustin, BENCH: Docherty, Terlich
    MID: Ablett, Pendles, Watson, Danger, Fyfe, Wines, Crouch, O'mera BENCH: k.mitchell, Viney
    Ruck: Jacobs, luenburger Bench: Rowe, Currie
    FWDS: Buddy, Cox, Stevie j, Rockliff, mayes, kerridge BENCH: Lee, kennedy

    • JohnnoB says:

      Stevie j out rd,1 bro

      • Shimma says:

        he'll be fine if Will is going for a league win, comp doesnt start till Round 3/4 I believe

    • SCaddict says:

      Hi Will

      Team looks great but you may have to sacrifice one of your premium mids (Fyfe perhaps?) to bolster the bottom end of your forward line or you will run a real risk of a krispy kreme or two each week. At the very least I would get Macaffer in there.

      Sadly there is a real dearth of rookie forward walk-up starters this season as opposed to the midfield were there is an embarrassment of riches rookie-wise.

  22. Brick says:

    I've got a sickening feeling that Sam Rowe will be a vest boy under Mick.

    Not sure why.

    • @MRB37 says:

      That's not really a huge concern unless you're starting him, which you shouldn't be doing unless it's due to injury. It'll limit his scores and thus his cash generation somewhat, but usually you'll take any cheap ruck option that gets games since they're few and far between.

      • jimbotraralgon says:

        I think Rowe will be an downgrade target midyear.

        I suspect that the 3 senior rucks will be given first dibs on ruck and key forward position. If they dont grab hold then Rowe will get his chance.

        No evidence to support this, just a feeling.

        cheers

    • SCaddict says:

      Yeah I agree there are plenty Blues bigs ahead of him. But I'll probably still pick him on my bench for his handy DPP status as I have Cox in my forward line which I can swap in for R1/R2 during the byes or when short term injuries/resting arise.

      • Mac says:

        Hi SCaddict, not sure if you know but the bye rules have been changed this year. – Check them out because swing sets are no longer needed during bye rounds.

        • SCaddict says:

          Ah yes that's right with the top 18 scorers during byes now so my bad. They are still useful for injuries, resting, suspensions and trades though.

  23. Brick says:

    I'm still going to with as at this stage,we don't know, but I'm also still leaning towards a bloke by the name of Gorringe and no matter how many times I mention his name – I can't rally any support.

    POD?

    • jimbotraralgon says:

      Hey Brick.

      Why are you on Gorringe? what is your thoughts. Might get on board if you can put a case forward.

      cheers

      • Brick says:

        Well – He's a number 10 draft pick. Injury plagued early he is pumped up for a "big" year. My thoughts he might play 12 odd games and average about 50,might even crack 20 odd games.
        Ruck cash cow possibilties.
        There was also an article about him spending some more time up forward and down back.
        http://www.goldcoast.com.au/article/2012/12/31/44

        I'm also starting to get a boner for young Matera.

        • jimbotraralgon says:

          thanks Brick….good point but can't help thinking he is still a couple years off being supercoach relevant.

          cheers

  24. Shimma says:

    Anyone know anything about Jake Stringer's injury? Is he gonna be good come Round 1? Loved the stringer joke Crouching

  25. Yappa's Allstars says:

    Not sure about K. Stevens, to expensive and I done don't believe he will score consistently. :)

    • jimbotraralgon says:

      I agree Yappa, I do want one of the high end mid rookies but I am starting to look at Toumpas instead, maybe wines. Lonergan even.

      Started with koby but didnt see enough to convince me.

      cheers

    • Kev says:

      31% d.e on the weekend has me worried!

    • SCaddict says:

      Yeah there are plenty other midfield options at that price point such as Toumpas, Wines, Whitfield, Hill, Vlastuin etc.

      But I liked what I saw from Koby on Friday night and more importantly I think so did McCartney so he's in my squad for now.

  26. James says:

    Hi Jock,

    What happened with Todd Goldstein? Wasn't he your number 1 ruck?
    Also who are some premium forwards to consider? I already have Rocklief and Roughead.

    Would love your thoughts

    • jockreynolds says:

      Gday James – he was mate – at this stage I have Zac Smith and Leuengerger (stuffed this up in the podcast.. said Giles meant Smith! bugger). Like Smith as a 3rd year player, 1st ruck at a very low price, break out potential… Goldstein… Curry has come in and done a bit more than anticipated, dont think Goldy will settle into stride anymore.
      Forwards are hard this season… tick on Rockliff and Rough… but I'll be going pretty skinny up there this season initially

  27. jimbotraralgon says:

    hey guys….whats happened with kerridge? Is he becoming irrelevant like Tommy Lee?

    Cheers

    • @MRB37 says:

      Not irrelevant, but I can't see him being a definite pick each and every week. Seems to be a bit of a jack of all trades, master of none type player, which can make it tough to find a consistent position for him to play. Same reason Tom Lynch hasn't gotten games with the Crows, hard to find a position to play him at AFL level, bit too small to be a key position player, but not fast enough to play elsewhere on the ground.

    • jockreynolds says:

      thought he actially showed promise for the first time in a long time this weekend jimbo… I'll be watching him v closely this weekend

  28. AlBundy says:

    Any bets on Betts after the weekend? Getting more time on ball an still scoring well up forward… On ball time could add to consistency?

  29. Dinolyn says:

    Hey guys, whats the deal with beau waters, with the slight injury cloud and a limited pre season is he worth over other possibilities such as heath shaw and duffield?

    • SCaddict says:

      Waters is one of the best players in the entire comp to watch and capable of registering some big scores but reckon he's a tad over priced plus there is always that injury/suspension risk if history is any guide.

      Could be a handy POD though as I don't reckon too many will be picking him.

  30. Smittzzy says:

    Dont reckon he gets enough ball to secure a spot. thats just my opinion

  31. Smittzzy says:

    Also Dan Hannebery needs some serious discussion huge ball winner this weekend and looking for a break out??

    • BMO says:

      With Sydney's easy start to the year i'm giving Dan a gig in my squad (m6) this season. If i dont like what I see after 2,3,4 games i dont mind burning a trade down to a rookie that looks the goods, that i may have initially missed.

  32. Tim says:

    Hey guys who would you guys oil out of grimes and watts??

  33. kodesz says:

    Ben Jacobs or Shaun Atley?

    Also Shuey or Harley Bennell?

    Just wondering who most of you have as your R1 this year?
    opinions would be great! cheers

    • Smittzzy says:

      I dont see the hype over Atley at the moment mate hes out put has been minimal but will continue to watch him.

      I'd go Bennell as Shuey is going to be competing with some serious midfield aka, Kerr, Masten, Wellingham, Lecras, Selwood, Priddis. Also possibly there most influential midfield coping a tag every week?

      Whereas Bennell Won't be tagged cause Ablett will cop it. hows some great silk this NAB cup. continue to watch him

    • Shimma says:

      dont really know enough about Jacobs/Atley to answer the first one, but I reckon Bennell out of those two. Said to have bulked up a bit and looks a gun.

      Also, Im going Sam Jacobs so far at R1

  34. dgusto81 says:

    Bloody great podcast I must say.

    Don't know where to go on D Martin. Burnt me last year, but need to put aside player bias. Now also considering Zorko instead of Walker.

    • Smittzzy says:

      Zorko over Walker everyday of the week!!

    • SCaddict says:

      Yes Zorko for me too. As a key forward I expect Walker's performances and therefore price to fluctuate significantly so you should hopefully be able to pick up Tex a little cheaper during the season if you are still keen on him.

      I'm expecting Zorko to hold his value better and perhaps even push towards elite status.

      I reckon stick with Dusty although I realise it can be hard to when that player has disappointed you in the past. I've never been much of a fan of his before and wondered about all the hype but this year he looks in really good nick and his price is quite attractive.

    • @Dashism says:

      Zorko for sure. Putting aside his short 16 point debut, he averages in the top 5 forwards on SC and top 3 on DT.

  35. AJC says:

    Yarran vs d pearce?

    • SCaddict says:

      Any reason you're limiting yourself to those two as there is quite a price differential between them? In between you have players like Heppell, Newman, Harbrow, Broughton who are probably more popular selections.

      But if forced to choose I'd pick Yarran as I think Pearce is fraught with more risk at the higher price. At over $450K you want to be sure you are getting premium value and not convinced Pearce represents that at this point imho.

      • kodesz says:

        neither, completely agree with SCaddict. Reckon heppell will tear it up this year i'd definitely be going for someone else. If your looking for someone more around the yarran price tag, maybe consider shaun atley ($380,000)

  36. Dave says:

    First time putting together a serious team. Any comments appreciated

    DEF- Goddard, Gibbs, Shaw, Harbrow, Vlastuin, Goodes (Stevenson, Terlich)

    MID – Swan, Ablett, J. Selwood, Dangerfield, Zorko, Wines, K. Mitchell, O'Meara (Viney, Crouch)

    RUCK – Smith, Leuenberger (Gorringe, Currie)

    FWD – Franklin, Cox, Rockcliff, Martin, Karnezis, Byrnes (Macaffer, Rowe)

    About 40K left in bank.

    Not sure about Gorringe and Harbrow. Forward line is also stuffing me up- Should I swap Martin for Varcoe and use cash to improve Def/Mid? Or downgrade Byrnes for same result?

    • Te Ninja says:

      The only thing in that post which scares me really, is the 40 in the bank. Anyone else? Or am I just being soft?

  37. @Dashism says:

    Decent effort. Put simply:

    OUT Harbrow, Swan, Wines
    IN Rookie Def and two Elite Mids.
    OUT Karnezis and Martin
    IN Rookie FWD and a better Elite FWD than Martin.

    I haven't really calculated the cash but you may even be able to work out an upgrade for Smith in the Ruck too. Also swap out Gorringe for Rowe.

    • Shimma says:

      why out Swan?

    • Blaza says:

      Out Swan?Please explain?

    • Dave says:

      For DT swan is a definite for me. SC he might go if money is tight and a better option presents itself.

      I have the extra mid rookie mainly because I don’t trust any of the forward rookies at this stage. Waiting for the Rd 1 teams before I decide whether to take the extra forward rookie or not

  38. Shimma says:

    Considering trading out Tex Walker, which player (must be cheaper or at same price) should I look at? Thinking Stevie J, Round1 ban doesnt really matter to me

    • Popey says:

      If round 1 ban doesn't matter to you, then lock Stevie in! Should average 105 this year with added midfield time, I can see him being a top 3 forward this year.

    • SCaddict says:

      Yes Stevie J would be a solid selection as you already have both Zorko and Rocky.

      However my own personal preference would be to reassign Zorko to your forward line in place of Tex and make another selection of a true mid in your midfield. You have countless options on who that could be.

  39. Popey says:

    Hey Jock, great podcast this week. Some great thoughts and locked/unlocked a few players in my team.

    Have a question for ya mate, would you be willing to consider both of Rocky and Zork in the forwards? Bloody want them both, but having two lions premiums is in my forward line is risky. Currently rolling with:

    Buddy, Cox, Rockliff, Martin, Varcoe, Macaffer, (Lamb, Rowe)

    Still unsure on rookies… As you can probably tell. Thoughts?

    • Te Ninja says:

      I’d like to know people’s opinions on Zorko and Rocky too. I like both. Not sure if it’s a smart idea to have both. Even if one is in the Mid.

      • dools says:

        Mate it does not matter how many R on the same team as long as they preform, mate… I had 6 freo boys last year exceptining Sandilands Win/Win..Can you feel the love? dddo ITTTTTTTTTTTTT

    • SCaddict says:

      Both are locks in my team. Reckon Brisbane are going to have a good year with the addition of Moloney, Leuey returning from injury and Browny hopefully getting back to his best. Karnezis and Cornelius also look set for good seasons.

    • jockreynolds says:

      Thank you Popey – you're a good egg mate.
      To answer your question on Zork and The Rock.. if you feel they'll both provide solid output lock em in mate.. don't worry about the fact that they play for the same mob old mate;)

    • Popey says:

      Thanks Jock, and guys. Yep, I'll lock em both in RIGHT NOW.

  40. Bundy bears says:

    Trying a different tactic this year
    let me know your thoughts
    who’s should be in or out?
    Back: Goddard stanly Gibbs
    Hartlett. Atley. Plowman
    (Vlastuin goodes)
    Mids: ablett beams Boyd Whitfield
    toumpas orouke lonergan omeara
    (Wines mitchell)
    Rucks: cox. Smith
    (Grundy currie)
    Forwards: franklin Zorko robinson
    Lecras krakour varkoe
    (Daniher neald)

    Cheers

  41. Togg says:

    thoughts on kane lucas? at 217k he has to be worth considering?

    • kodesz says:

      worth considering could be a good pick. I'll be watching him very closely but isnt in my side atm.

    • SCaddict says:

      Absolutely worth considering. Mick really seems to be backing him. Not in my team coz I reckon Koby Stevens and Ollie Wines represent better value but Lucas is on my radar for sure.

  42. kodesz says:

    Just wondering why you guys are planning on a 6-4 mid structure? Surely with the large amount of genuine midfield rookies you would be more inclined to sure up your forward and back lines because of the rare amount of rookies in those areas?
    Just curious to know and i plan to go in with 5 midfield rookies.

  43. antlee says:

    Great show. Thoughts on tartan for a back spot. Down 20 odd on previous average.

    Also centrebet has a draft game, winner of each league gets $250 cash. I have a live draft tomorrow at 3pm. Code 856167. 3 spots left

  44. kodesz says:

    Is anyone considering Jonathan Simpkin ($198,00) as a higher priced rookie, instead of toumpas, wines, or stevens. Has good AFL experience with the cats and just didnt fit their structure. Looks to be comfortable at the hawks and has showed signs in the nab cup. I believe he's worth a good look.

  45. Dee says:

    H. Taylor or Duffield in the back line? I have one spot left and can't decide between the two….. Opinions would be appreciated, thank you!

    thoughts on suban and karnezis? karnezis seems a fantastic option what with him having 26 disposals!

    Hey guys, a question here, is it necessary to have DPP links everywhere? Because I have colquhoun in my MID bench, because i don't have any other MID/DEF. Also, I have Mitch Robinson my in mids to cater for MD/FWD. Other than these two, i have pure mids. I feel this is compromising my money making ability, but is DPP versatility more important in my case?

    • Bryton says:

      EDIT: Robinson is also compromising me from getting a pure mid in the 500-550k range too

      • dools says:

        NO No no DPP is a way of thinking that some one is better then their position means..Like O'Halpin he has Fwd/ Ruc status does this mean that he will Play??? DPP has gone this year to few on the ground where you knew they would be listed in you Def line but where really Mids ie Carrazo, Pick the team you feel represents value for coin..and don't panic about PODs go strong on the crest of the wave that nearly everyone has but be prepared to Trade Not Gambling on unique picks..Loose the DPP Status thing never mind about linking Positions They either play well / go down with injury/ get subbed/ Suspended etc etc Trade is the way but a solid base/platform from which to trade from is VITAL

    • Shimma says:

      Having Colquhon in your mid bench means your missing out on one of the many gun rookies in the midfield this season. As Jock would say, Ignore DPP, go for the best option available

  52. Redman says:

    Ablett, pendles, danger, Boyd, rockliff, vlastuin, k. Mitchell, o'meara (b. crouch & colquhoun)
