Round 5 Supercoach Scouting Report

VonCrow_smallHowdy folks, Barron Von Crow here with our Round 5 Supercoach scouting report. Round 4 was a mess for some, but some also managed to walk away unscathed.

A few dud scores, a few injuries, some blowout in the games themselves and your Supercoach week can go from good to bad very quickly! We’ll have to move onto Round 5 though, which is the Easter round as we have both a game on Thursday and Monday, with no Friday night football so we’ll have to remember to get our teams ready a day early.

Also, remember to look out for the red and green Supercoach scores, RED = bad, GREEN = good which may help you out when it comes to picking your captains for the week.

First up, our Top 10 rankings

Round 4 Top 10 Rankings

1. Travis Boak: 157 Supercoach Points (10 points)
2. Matthew Boyd: 153 Supercoach Points (9 points)
3. Steve Johnson: 150 Supercoach Points (8 points)
4. Sam Mitchell: 149 Supercoach Points (7 points)
5. Dayne Beams: 145 Supercoach Points (6 points)
6. Gary Ablett / Matt White: 138 Supercoach Points (5 points)
7. Nick Dal Santo / Jack Gunston: 134 Supercoach Points (4 points)
8. Dyson Heppell / David Mackay: 133 Supercoach Points (3 points)
9. Scott D. Thompson / Nathan Jones: 132 Supercoach Points (2 points)
10. Ed Curnow / James Frawley / Sam Lloyd: 131 Supercoach Points (1 point)

Overall Top 10 Rankings

1. Gary Ablett – 19 points ( 3 appearances)
2. Adam Treloar – 18 points (2 appearances)
3. Joel Selwood – 17 points (3 appearances)
4. Shane Mumford – 15 points (2 appearances)
5. Steve Johnson – 13 points (2 appearances)
6. Jobe Watson / Scott Pendlebury / Travis Boak – 10 points
7. Brent Harvey / Matthew Boyd – 9 points
8. Dayne Beams (2 appearances) / Clinton Jones / Dayne Zorko – 8 points
9. Nathan Jones (2 appearances) /Ollie Wines / Tom Rockliff / Sam Mitchell – 7 points
10. Dion Prestia / Mark LeCras / Nick Riewoldt / Aaron Sandilands / Tom Liberatore – 6 points

So after the first month of AFL football Gary Ablett takes the lead with his 3rd appearances in the top 10 rankings, managing to narrowly beat out the young Giant Adam Treloar and former team mate Joel Selwood. Mumford will be out for a week or so, so he could face a slide down the rankings here, while Steve Johnson also makes his 2nd appearances in the top 10 rankings this week.

Interesting to see both Dayne Beams and Nathan Jones make their second appearances on the list as well. They’re lower down on the rankings compared to other guys who’ve had multiple appearances, but it does highlight that they are still two players we should be taking a look at, even if it’s only with a VC on them.

Captain Pick(s):

Richmond has been struggling for some good scores with Deledio out and Cotchin copping some extra attention from the taggers. Rockliff is looking like a decent pick here, he still managed to post a decent score despite Brisbane getting flogged by Port, but with the added injuries of Hanley and Luenberger, it could be a repeat flogging for Brisbane again.

Captain Pick(s):

Beams and Pendlebury are the most obvious choices here (and most weeks it looks like!). Pendles had two massive scores against the Roos last year and he looks like he may be playing even better this year. Put the VC on him if you can loop, otherwise click Captain and you should hopefully not have any problems. Can also look at Nicky Dal as a VC option here if you have him as well, who has been a very good scorer for the Roos so far this year.

@ SCG Averages: 91.80 Supercoach Points, High Score of 123

Captain Pick(s):

If you’ve kept Fyfe in your side then you can consider him a decent VC option here. Sandilands will likely be going up against a struggling Pyke / Derickx combo, so he could be another nice VC choice as well. Sydney hare hard to gauge at the moment, so I’d be avoiding their players this week.

Captain Pick(s):

Watson will be your man here if you haven’t already used Beams/Pendlebury. Riewoldt could also be in line for a big game, but that’d be a VC only risk for mine. Something about last weeks game against Adelaide tells me Heppell could have a big one too.

@ Patersons Stadium Averages: 70.71 Supercoach Points, High Score of 107

Captain Pick(s):

Boak finally had a return to form last week and will be looking to continue the ride against the Eagles. Hartlett scored big last time, but he hasn’t really had a standout performance in Supercoach yet this year. Cox could also score well against Lobbe, who may struggle against the Eagles bigs, but I think this may be a case of whichever of the 2-3 that usually play out of Cox / Nic Nat / Sinclair / Lycett all score well, rather than 1 player having a huge game.

Captain Pick(s):

GWS look to be twice the team they were last year, so I wouldn’t be expecting another 100 point beating here, nor would I be expecting Tom Lynch to kick 10 goals again! Danger scored 147 last time and kicked 4 goals, he spent a fair chunk of time forward last week, if he does it again he is capable of kicking a bag. Would be a very risky pick considering his scores so far, but this just might be his week. Ward has a surprisingly good average against Adelaide, and based on previous form he’d be a nice VC choice. Jacobs scored big in Rd 16, and might be capable of a repeat performance, especially considering Jacobs looks well past his poor form of 2013 and GWS will be without Shane Mumford.

Captain Pick(s):

Hey, we finally spotted a bad Gary Ablett game! Wouldn’t worry at all with that 67 he scored in Round 20 and wouldn’t hesitate to put him as Captain. I’d also consider Swallow here as a smokie, he scored well against Melbourne last year and has been playing even better football since then. Nathan Jones also goes on our list, due to the reasons in the top 10 ranking, twice been a top 10 scorer, so we have to consider him for that reason.

Captain Pick(s):

Griffen would be usually be your man here, but he appears to still be building into some form, so I wouldn’t pick him this week. Can’t say there’s anyone I’m comfortable picking from Carlton. They’ve only got 1 player averaging over 100 Supercoach Points so far this year and that’s Ed Curnow(!). Both Boyd and Liberatore have been up and down so far too, so I’d avoid them as well this week, unless you’re feeling really confident they’d beat up on Carlton (which is entirely possible)

Captain Pick(s):

Selwood! Selwood! He’s our boy! If he can’t do it, no one…will. Selwood is your choice here! Steve J has been good so far this year, but hasn’t scored well against Hawthorn in the past, so I might avoid him for that reason. Sam Mitchell is also another to consider as he has scored quite well against Geelong in the past, and put up a heck of a score last week as well.

Barron Von Crow’s Round 5 Captain Selection:

As we begin to move along in the season, we can almost begin to start looking at the Top 10 rankings to see who to pick for our Captains. Ablett, Selwood, Pendles, all the usual good choices. I also like the chances of Rockliff, Beams, Watson, Heppell, Boak, Dangerfield, Swallow and Sam Mitchell (if he plays) as VC picks too.

Personally I’ll likely be going one of Beams / Rockliff / Danger as my VC with the safety pick of Ablett as my Captain.

Also for those of you who have Liam Shiels (like me), if you can’t trade him out because of other priorities, he’s still some use to us! You can either use him as your Captains loophole for the week (Hawthorn play on Monday, so it’ll be good all weekend), or use him as a bench emergency swap if you can (e.g. I’ll put the E on Aish and start Shiels. If Aish scores well, Shiels stays on the field, if Aish bombs, I’ll swap out him out for my other bench option).

That’ll be it from me for this week. Enjoy your Easter break everyone, if you’re going away for the weekend make sure you all stay safe and I hope you all have a ripper of a Supercoach week.

  2. TG_Footy_Tragic says:

    Excellent as always BVC!!

  3. rob says:

    Which of these 4 trades should have the highest priority this round
    Mumford- JacobsGoldsteinMinsonCox
    Michie- Crouch
    Caddy- Fasolo
    Rohan- Lloyd
    Thanks.

    • Jimmy says:

      Mummy listed 3-4 now on GWS site. Wait on Lloyd. Michie not playing so at least won’t lose money. Caddy giving everyone the shits to Fasolo who is cheaper and scoring better. So 1and 3 IMO.

      • Rescued Pieman says:

        Not many people play a week or 2 after knee surgery. 1-2 weeks was always rubbish. Priority trade. Caddy to Fasolo looks appealing.

  4. IWil says:

    Might go Beams over Rocky for VC this week. Am a Lions fan and I'm pretty sure we need all the help we can get. Rocky doesn't need any more burden!

  5. Jontyone says:

    What does everyone think of having 4 round 8 bye forwards? I’ve currently got Wright and Dangerfield and are looking to bring in fasolo and Lloyd. Can both of these fit in my team. Come round 8 if I had both I would have one of them emergency and Ambrose. Is fasolo that good of value? Round 8 bye priced at 213k and I can’t really see him averaging above 85. Thoughts?

    • Jai says:

      Personally Im not looking to bring a fasolo into my fwds. Don't rate his output over a lengthy period of time.

      My fwd line is as follows:
      P Dangerfield, D Martin, L Parker, D Zorko, S Higgins, S Lloyd, (L Taylor, J Kennedy-Harris)

      I traded J Caddy for S Lloyd last week – Lloyd tore up NAB cup and is a mature age player so no hesitations with him starting on the field… 131 was a lot better than I was hoping – would have been satisfied with a 70.

      I would personally recommend bringing S Lloyd into your side over Fasolo. Would you be looking to trade Wright out before his round 8 bye?

      • Jontyone says:

        He seems to have finally hit his straps the last few rounds (100,118). He has a easy run going into the byes with Gws, Bulldogs and Melbourne his opponents. I'm hoping he can average 90+ and be around 450k so I can downgrade to Petrie if he hits some form

  6. matt says:

    get on montagna 1148 last time

  7. Jock says:

    is priddis to pendles a bad trade? or worthwhile waiting to rookies to upgrade to him later

  8. brandon2416 says:

    mummy out for jacobs or mummy out for nic nat

  9. Powerhouse says:

    I’m thinking of tradig dale thomas for ollie wines and rohan for lloyd this week.. any thoughts, Yay/Nay?

    • Swans2014 says:

      Ollie Wines has been good so far but do you think he can keep it up?. You have got to ask yourself if you think he will be a top 10 midfielder come years end. I would go Rohan to Lloyd and keep Thomas

  10. Kristofor says:

    Jaensch vs Swallow
    Who would you prefer/ who will score more for the rest of the season?

    • Swans2014 says:

      Jaensch. Save yourself some cash for upgrades

    • Kristofor says:

      Caddy and Webster have to go.
      I have Hanley, but even for 3 weeks.. might just hold him as I have cover (everyone else playing) and he will be a starter in my final team.

  11. Cameron says:

    FUUUUUUU
    Now everyone is going to Jacobs, surely he's going to get injured now….

  12. JJM says:

    I give up! Had enough of the pain and headaches, I'm throwing the towel and raise the white flag. 
    The Footy god had waged war against my team in round 4, after the carnage I am left here wondering WTF. 
    Round 5 looking a lot like this Hanley out, Shiels out, Goddard out, Mummy out, Smitch and Wingard not a certain starter. Webster and Daisy HOLD they say HOLD!!! Now I'm effing stuck with them. 
    Buddy, Titch, Caddy, Impey and JKH are a bunch of pansies. Dangerfield WTF!!!! Seriously? Out of all the fwds I thought Higgins was gonna be the DUD of them all. 

    I'll cya all next season. I'm done with all these crap.

  13. Dan says:

    How does the loophole actually work, I've never used it before, can someone enlighten me?

    • Swans2014 says:

      Which one?
      The captain one: You have Gary Ablett captain so you put vice captain someone that plays before Ablett. If that Vice Captain is Trent Cotchin who plays on Thursday gets 110 you leave him vice captain and put Ablett captain. If Cotchin scores 150 you change captain from Ablett to a non scoring bench player (e.g King or Ambrose) and so they score 0 and you get the vice captains double score.
      Bench: You put the first playing player in the loophole (e.g Sam Lloyd). You put Lloyd emergency and Alex Fasolo on field. If Lloyd scores 40 you keep Fasolo on field. If Lloyd scores 100 you swap Fasolo to a non scoring player (e.g Ambrose) so he gets 0 and you get your emergency score (110-Lloyd)

    • Daniel says:

      Only risk is having a late withdrawal to your benched captain, then you may lose points your normal emg wouldve given you. Small risk, but serious burn on occasions.

  14. Kristofor says:

    Tough call for me this week…
    Keen on getting rid of Cameron Clay (injured/not scoring well anyway), Webster (not scoring), Caddy (vest prone?)
    Unsure about Hanley (have cover). Would LIKE to hold him.
    Keen on obtaining (In order of preference and up for debate): Swallow, Jaensch, Fasolo and Lloyd.. about 70k in the bank.

    Choose one of the following double trades.
    A: IN Swallow OUT Webster // IN Lloyd OUT Caddy
    B: IN Jaensch OUT Webster // IN Fasolo OUT Caddy
    C: In Jaensch OUT Clay // IN Lloyd OUT Caddy (Webster on bench hoping he goes up in value eventually)
    D: In Swallow OUT Hanley // IN Fasolo OUT Caddy
    E: Other suggestion.

    Those are probably in order for me… but I've reverse traded about 37 times so far…

    • Michael says:

      I was tossing up between Lloyd and Fasolo for Caddy also.
      But after some strong considerations, I have decided to pick Fasolo simply because he has played 2 games and Lloyd has only played 1.
      The plan is to trade in Lloyd (for JKH the spudtastic rookie or maybe Spudman Impey) AFTER this round and that way I don't miss out on Fasolo.
      SO, in summary: if you have shocking rookies in your forward line, trade out Caddy for Fasolo this week; and trade out one of your spuds (e.g Rohan, JKH, Impey) for Lloyd next week.

      Now, in terms of trading out Webster or Hanley, I would trade Hanley.
      Hanley is expected to return round 8 or 9 and by keeping him on your bench, you are missing out on some good scores each week.
      Webster should still continue to rise in price and is expected to increase $13,900 this season. YES this isn't much, but at least as a rookie, he isn't expected to lose value this season. He has a BE of 48 and a 60% likelihood of achieving this. So, if I were you I'd keep Webster (for now) and trade Hanley

      Here are the options for your backline: Jaensch, Swallow (as you mentioned) but also Bartel. Now to be honest, I don't know which one of these is your best option. the question is: "who will score more points this season?" Honestly? I just don't know.

      I'm in exactly the same boat as you mate, and I've put a bit of thought into my decisions – I wish you all the best with yours. Hope I have helped. :)

  15. Marcus J says:

    Ive got hanley but im gonna cover him (atleast for this week)

    taken some of jocks advise from the podcast and ive culled my first rookie
    taken aish out (be of around 30 and isn't playing that great) and bringing in crouch

    and i have used some of the spare cash from that trade to punt rohan the dud and bring in fasolo

    hopefully lloyd will play well again so i can bring him in for mcarthy who is burning a hole in my bench

  16. HiltonKid says:

    Have I got 2 Trades every week for RDT or is it 30 trades for 23 rounds + Finals?!

  17. BCHawks says:

    Hey guys I need a bit of help. I only have 24 trades left and was wondering if I should trade out Dale Thomas and swing in Matthew Wright into my midfield and then get Fasolo down forward. And then for my second trade trade in Crouch for Cunningham/ Aish or Should I just use 1 trade and trade in Crouch and get rid of Thomas. Thanks in advance.

        • dools says:

          Hi BCH, I think you have a very solid structure there mate regardless of the byes. I had Daisy from the start but he was traded Rnd 2 out for Matt Rosa and he is on a slippery slide down (and missed last weeks game!!).Fasolo is a short term gain (Like Rosa) ya you will earn coin but you are trading in a trade out later and trades are gold mate. Matty Crouch is a gun but are you thinking Daisy to Crouch but again a short term gain for a trade later,good thinking I think. Do that trade only you have a great ruc line (I don't. Mummy) good def line with cover unless Mitchelll goes down again! HOLD Hanley until we know more about the Hammy??? Fwds are good with playing cover… I know this is a wreak of a weekend but hold trades it pays off later in the season….Hope this eased your twitchy trade finger mate but You need to follow your gut mate….good luck matey

          • Dools says:

            Bugger I forgot to sign in again…Sorry mate…..Hi BCH, I think you have a very solid structure there mate regardless of the byes.

            • BCHawks says:

              thanks so should I save my trades or trade Daisy to Crouch?

              • Dools says:

                Daisy to Crouch is a go ..Reasoning is this daisy is wind blown after a run good scoring from a man who runs on one leg…but he is not AFL elite maybe after the byes while Crouch is young , hungry and out to prove himself 80 last week for a little guy… brilliant, And more to follow. Up to you and your gut mate.

                • throttlefinger says:

                  In other words, BCHawks, a CASH COW. Jump on him. Daisy experiment has to end. Give yourself some relief with someone who is going to generate.

        • sputnik says:

          Dunno what youre scoring but you need to focus on your mids and defense. Theyre basically all rookies. Hope you have some cash in the bank and start carving some of those rookies up. Tyson and Daisy first need to be upgraded, pearce orf pearce coz he's done for 4 weeks. Rucks are perfect, then look to fark orf Laidler aswell.

          • BCHawks says:

            Hey I am averaging 2,086 and I only have 27,400 in the bank so I think that a trade Thomas to Crouch is a good idea.

  18. Rescued Pieman says:

    Loved your number 93 call in last week Baron, reassuring. Not that I have thought of getting rid of Danger. Notorious slow starter, but one hell of a finisher. Crows draw looks great till the bye. Trade Danger at your own risk, people have, & the pain will be severe. Keep up the great work BVC.

  19. Spiro says:

    thinking of trading Jimmy Webster to Cam Guthrie thoughts?

    • Bob McBob says:

      Risky, but could work out. Just remember Guthrie is the occasional tagger

    • MightyDonsFC says:

      Bit too risky, as Bob said Guthrie can deployed as a tagger which has a significant impact on his sc score. Anyway, for around 60k more you could potentially get a keeper for the season!

    • Derek says:

      I traded Guthrie to Hanley last week

  20. Guest says:

    Is everyone trading mumford or holding? If trading, who would be ideal?

  21. hugh says:

    sam jacobs

  22. hugh says:

    gws updated there injury list it says he will be out for 3-4 weeks

  23. Bundybear says:

    Dumb question no/323. Is it still rolling lockout this weekend. I couldnt trade after the first game last week. im sure we were able to last year. Its annoying when they drop players for surgery and dont let us know in advance. I thought rolling lockout meant that we could trade till the team played. Thankyou for your thoughts

    • BCHawks says:

      You can as long as you still have at least 1 trade left for the week.

    • sputnik says:

      And once the rounds starts ie friday night you can no longer reverse trades. So if you trade on saturday once you confirm that trade you cannot reverse it.

    • Sleepy says:

      And depends if you are playing supercoach or dreamteam. Dreamteam you cant change anything after first bounce on Friday night whereas supercoach you can change up until the bounce of each game.

      • Bundybear says:

        I play both. I dont like dreamteam this year. it sucks big time. No head to head leagues at all. They didnt mind taking my $19.95 + $1.00 for whatever reason the $1.00 was for.

        • sputnik says:

          thats AFL fantasy youre talking about.

          Dreamteam is still playing but its called the real dreamteam and has nothing to do with the AFL anymore but it is the same as last year.

          The one that you are saying sucks is AFL fantasy and it sucks hard!!!!!!!!!1

  24. teambob says:

    is there any idea if sam gray will continue to play? or is a a one game wonder for a rookie this season?

  25. sticks7 says:

    Gday Fellas hope you having a good night,
    What are your thoughts on the pav? I was reading micks article yesterday and hes more consistent then most of the key forwards out there.
    Should We bring him in?

  26. Sleepy says:

    Wait and see if he plays again this week. His price wont rise until after he play 3 games so if he play again this weekend I would grab him

    • sticks7 says:

      Hes already played 4 games…….

      • Sleepy says:

        Yeah u are right Sticks. Pavlich has played 4. That was supposed to go into replying to teambob. Will Sam Gray play again?. Technology always gets me somehow lol

  27. PREMOS FOR HANLEY says:

    Who will score more points, this season:
    … Jimmy Bartel or David Swallow?

  28. Pat says:

    guys heres my side
    BACK: McVeigh, Suckling, mitchell, Hanley, mac and Webster (Georgio and Langford)
    MIDS: GAZ, COTCH, SMURPH, BEAMS, DAL, DUNSTAN, TYSON, THOMAS (langdon, Polec)
    RUCKS: Sandi, Pyke (Dericks, king)
    FORWARDS: dUSTY, DANGER, buddy, parker, taylor, JKH (Ambrose, Impey)

    Where to start, would adore some quality feedback from you all
    Cheers !!!!

    • WombatsFC says:

      Hi Pat,
      Geezus.
      Dump webster swing langdon get crouch.
      Dump daisy swing parker get Fasolo.
      Next week dump Impey swing parker back and get Rocky

  29. Jarred says:

    Whose more of a priority to trade out for Fasolo

    T.Mitchell, Caddy or Rohan

    Fwd line

    Dangerfield, D.Martin, L.Parker, T.Mitchell, Higgins, Caddy, (Rohan, JKH)

  30. Philthy says:

    Higgins!!

    Rohan of those 3 named though, never a chance of a ton even on his best day

  31. Tom says:

    Merret and Falsolo
    Or
    Bruest and Lloyd
    For
    Caddy and Rohan or any other thoughts. Desperately need some better output!!!!

  32. Michael says:

    Which trade will give me more POINTS at the end of the SEASON?

    1) Hanley/OUT – Jimmy Bartel/IN
    2) Hanley/OUT – David Swallow/IN
    3) Hanley/OUT – Matthew Jaensch/IN

    The above options are disregarding pricing and all I want to know is who will score more points this SEASON out of the three?

  33. MightyDonsFC says:

    Watch out for Robertson tomorrow night, have a sneaky suspicion he'll score around 80

  34. Swans2014 says:

    Lloyd vs Fasolo? Thoughts

    • throttlefinger says:

      Fasolo you have a better read, as he's played two games. Cost more so obviously the cash generating will be better for Lloyd. If you can't wait until next week, I'd go Lloyd. Even if he goes sub 70, his first game will make his first price go up. And don't think he's going to lose his spot to Jake King, who has barely seen 70 SC points, much less 130!

      • Cyril says:

        Coaches don’t look at Supercoach scores though. King will put a lot of pressure on his spot

  35. The Ranger says:

    I'd like to get the Communitys feedback on Swan.
    Thinking of upgrading a cash cow to him next week.
    130BE. Good chance he won't get that and he'd be only 500G odd next week.
    He's an obvious keeper if he can get his form back methinks but can he get his form back?

  36. Cyril says:

    It’s a hard one, if he spends more time in the midfield he’s every chance of being worth it. He just doesn’t look right to me this year. Limited preseason, surgery etc. I’d b keener on picking up a cheap griffin

  37. peter says:

    When is ambrose back and will he slot back in straight away?

  38. HiltonKid says:

    Joel Selwood or Tom Rockliff looking to bring them in for Hanley next week

  39. HiltonKid says:

    Defence: Jaensch , Swallow , McVeigh, Mitchell , McDonald , Enright, C – Bench Georgiou, A + Fuller, M

    Hey all..

    Hanley to Suckling or to Jaensch? I don't have Swallow, but I need the cash to upgrade Rohan to Fasolo.

    Is Enright playing????

    Should I trade him next week and have got Mitchell,McVeigh, Jaensch, David Swallow and Mcdonald in back line.

    Have got Hanley on mid bench will let Jaensch and Mcdonald make cash in back before upgrade… thinking of upgrading Hanley to Joel Selwood thoughts?

    Cheers
