Round 8 Supercoach Scouting Report

VonCrow_smallHowdy folks, welcome to our Round 8 Supercoach Scouting Report. The bye rounds have now kicked in, with Adelaide, Collingwood, Geelong, Gold Coast, North Melbourne and Richmond all taking the week off.

This may make our Captain selections a bit more difficult this week as we don’t have our usual Gary Ablett or Scott Pendlebury fallback options available to you, but that’s what we’re here to help with!

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, let’s take a look at the Top 10 scorers from Round 7

  1. Callan Ward – 145 Supercoach Points (10 points)
  2. Leigh Montagna – 144 Supercoach Points (9 points)
  3. Josh Gibson – 142 Supercoach Points (8 points)
  4. Jared Polec / Gary Ablett – 141 Supercoach Points (7 points)
  5. Luke Bruest / Tom Liberatore – 139 Supercoach Points (6 points)
  6. Brodie Smith – 138 Supercoach Points (5 points)
  7. Jarryd Roughead – 137 Supercoach Points (4 points)
  8. Jarrad McVeigh / Steve Johnson / Mark Jamar – 135 Supercoach Points (3 points)
  9. Kieren Jack – 133 Supercoach Points (2 points)
  10. Tom Rockliff / Sam Jacobs – 132 Supercoach Points (1 point)

And that leaves the top 10 leader board looking like

  1. Gary Ablett – 41 points (6 appearances)
  2. Leigh Montagna – 21 points (3 appearances)
  3. Steve Johnson (4 appearances) / Travis Boak (2 appearances) – 19 points
  4. Adam Treloar – 18 points (2 appearances)
  5. Joel Selwood – 17 points (3 appearances)
  6. Shane Mumford – 16 points (2 appearances)
  7. Marc Murphy – 15 points (2 appearances)
  8. Matthew Boyd – 13 points (2 appearances)
  9. Tom Liberatore (2 appearances) / Steele Sidebottom (3 appearances) – 12 points
  10. Luke Bruest (2 apperances) / Scott Pendlebury / Jobe Watson / Patrick Dangerfield / Callan Ward – 10 points

Ablett continues to leave his opposition in the dust, scoring a top 10 score in 6 out of the 7 rounds played. Leigh Montagna has had his 3rd Top 10 week in a row and now sits 2nd on the leader board at 21 points. Steve Johnson is the next best option in terms of times as a top 10 scorer with 4 appearances on the list and is equal 3rd with Travis Boak. Both Adam Treloar and Joel Selwood haven’t been able to match their hot first month of football, but still sit in 4th place for Treloar on 18 points and in 5th place with 17 points for Joel Selwood. It’s also the first time there hasn’t been a Collingwood player in the Top 10 rankings for a round, and had to settle with Tom Langdon’s 128 being the 12th best Supercoach score for Round 7.

@ ANZ Stadium Averages: 111.0 Supercoach Points, High Score of 111

Captain Pick(s):

JPK has a terrific average against his old side and Kieran Jack has been putting up some decent scores, so I’d have them both as rock solid VC picks this week. Luke Hodge doesn’t have the greatest average at ANZ Stadium, but with Mitchell out, he could have a big game. Roughead and Rioli are rolls of the dice, they both have the potential for a Captain worthy score, but probably have equal chance of putting up a score in the 70’s as well.

@ Adelaide Oval Averages: N/A

Captain Pick(s):

Robbie Gray has a fairly solid average against Fremantle, and an average of 120.33 over his last 3 games, which would make him a solid VC candidate here and on the opposite end of the spectrum, Travis Boak has a terrible average against Freo, so I’d probably stay away from him this week, even with his good averages at Adelaide Oval this year. For Freo, Sandilands and Mumford both look like they have potential to put up a good score against Port and would also be solid VC picks.

Total VS Brisbane Averages: 3 games, 80.33 Supercoach Points
@ The Gabba Averages: 68.0 Supercoach Points, High Score of 68

Captain Pick(s):

Normally we’d pick one of Rockliff or Watson here, but they’ve both got issues, Rockliff hasn’t scored well against Essendon in the past, Watson has scored well against Brisbane at times, but never at the Gabba, where he’s never scored higher than 117 in his 3 games. However you may not have any better options available to you, so you might have to stick your Captain on one of them and hope for the best.

Total VS Melbourne Averages: 9 games, 96.56 Supercoach Points
@ MCG Averages: 87.21 Supercoach Points, High Score of 148

Captain Pick(s):

This could be the game that nets us a winner, with Tom Liberatore and Matthew Boyd all having big scores to their name this year and against Melbourne in the past. Young Libba absolutely destroyed Melbourne the last 2 (and only) times they played, and is absolutely capable of backing up his score from last week, although he has failed to do that yet this year. Boyd is an interesting one since his average against Melbourne is his 2nd lowest against an opponent and 1 of 3 teams he does not average at least 95 Supercoach Points against (the others being Essendon and Sydney). Still, he netted a nice score in Round 23 and has been in fine form lately. Can’t forget Nathan Jones either.

@ Patersons Stadium Averages: 103.0 Supercoach Points, High Score of 171

Captain Pick(s):

Callan Ward would be my Captain choice here. Nic Nat scored well last year; however his form and injuries this year have really impacted his Supercoach output so far this year, so I’d be avoiding him this time around.

Total VS St Kilda Averages: 8 games, 69.88 Supercoach Points
@ Etihad Stadium Averages: 82.56 Supercoach Points, High Score of 150

Captain Pick(s):

Leigh Montagna’s 3 round average of 152.67 probably makes him the best Captain choice this round, however his average against Carlton is his lowest against an opposition and the only side he averages less than 95 Supercoach points against over his career. Still, he’s been in top form and with limited options you may just need to look past that and hope he continues to put up good scores. Marc Murphy also falls into the same category, with his worst average coming against St Kilda at a measly 78 over 11 games played. Hard to trust form like that. Nick Riewoldt has had a quiet fortnight, but is capable of a big score, with an especially healthy average against Carlton.

BARRON VON CROWS CAPTAIN SELECTION(S):

This week I’ll likely be running with my VC on Josh P Kennedy and my C on Tom Rockliff. So if you’ve got a Rockliff/Montagna/Boyd/Liberatore type, they’ll look like your best bets for Captain this week. This might have to be the round were we play it safe and put our VC/C picks on our 2 best players and hope for the best! I’ll likely be playing slightly conservative this week and if my VC gets anything over 120 I won’t hesitate to bank that as I don’t have a near certain 130+ score from Gary Ablett to fall back on.

And that’ll be it for our Round 8 Scouting Report. Hope you manage to pick a winner this week! Which Captains will you be looking at picking this week? Share your thoughts in the comments below, or let us know on the Twitters @BarronVonCrow.

  1. SCaddict says:

    JPK into Libba for me Barron.

    Think there's a strong chance at least one of these guys will go 120 plus this weekend.

    • Wattsieesq says:

      I've gone McV into Libba, so along the same lines as you with the swan into a dog : )

  2. crabb says:

    Jobe into libba for me.

    Jobe's underachieved the last few weeks and should be looking to bounce back. But if not, i'll bank on libba's form v melbourne.

  3. Kev says:

    Sandi into Libba for me

  4. Sarah says:

    Watson into Ward for me.

  5. Beady Eye says:

    Fyfe into Lukey Dahl for mine. Geez, as much as I love Fyfey, that sentence doesn't inspire great confidence does it?

  6. Lewis says:

    Relton Roberts into Brendan Fevola for me!

  7. Giri Logeswaran says:

    This is probably the most important article you write this season. Great stuff. I’m taking the punt with higgins.

  8. dean says:

    im going to try libba into reiwoldt

  9. Captain joc says:

    So sandi and Mumford are good picks for captain in the Fremantle vs port Adelaide game? I think Barron means Mundy

  10. ben says:

    have to go vc watson c murphy also have shuey, mveigh, hodge and saindlands

  11. James says:

    Gone McEvoy vc and Simpson C. the reason for that is because Sydney dont have Pyke and Derickx doesnt set the world on fire so taking a risk but hopefully it pays off and Simpson because he has been consistent averages 105 from the past 5

  12. Ando says:

    Could Luke Shuey become a sneaky POD after the bye rounds?
    He's had a solid if unspectacular average so far showing he can rack up the numbers, will if improve his consistency as Nic Nat finds form?
    Anyone

    • Beady Eye says:

      Massive downhill skier in a team unlikely to be doing much downhill anything based on current form.

      Stay away.

      • Bob McBob says:

        I think he just needs assistance from other midfielders other than Priddis. WCE are pretty much running a two man midfield with 3 ruckmen.

        • Beady Eye says:

          True, but who’s going to help him out? Gaff? He handles a tag even worse.

          I’d suggest steering clear of the WC midfield period. Too reliant on their ruckmen, and when Dog Dog is down on form they suffer the flow-on effect.

  13. Gab says:

    guys if you were to rank the ruck men from 1-5 in the whole afl who would they be, im trying to figure out who to trade Pyke to and i dont know at this stage?

    • Beady Eye says:

      That's the problem we're all facing, the ruck rankings are changing virtually every week. Sandi is probably still #1, purely on consistency, then you can raffle the rest. Worth keeping an eye on Cox if the Weagles decide to give Naitanui an extended rest, and he gets to ruck solo.

    • Matt says:

      1: Sandi-but you have him
      2: jacobs-current form
      3: minson- you know how much i love him

      5:cox-gun but have 3 ruckmans in the one side

      • Gab says:

        thanks for the responses guys, my trades im thinking of this week are
        Mitchell > Rookie
        Pyke > Minson
        What do you reckon matty boy ???

        • Matt says:

          Get a premium for mitchell
          Premium for premium,
          Maybe even get a d6 defender MURPHY

          • Gab says:

            yer but i really want to get pyke out, or do i wait next week to get in a premium ruck men?

          • Captain joc says:

            Downgrading Mitchell is gonna give you short term cash but long term pain
            You will end up using 2 trades anyway to get a premium in later in the season replace for a fallen premium

        • Derek says:

          What Rookie? There is very little to choose from.

  14. Brad says:

    Jpk into Murphy!

  15. NIsht says:

    Gday barronm weres tight arse tuesday gone!!! favourite article of mine

  16. Remy says:

    Will Mumford play this week?

    • themightyroos says:

      He may be named, but I would have to think unlikely as they won't want to rush him in, and on top of that GWS play over in the west, expect to return Rd 10.

      • Remy says:

        Okay, thanks.
        I'm just looking at upgrading McIntosh. Who should I pick? Cash isn't an issue.

  17. B-Mac says:

    G'day all,

    Has the time come for Jaensch to be culled?

    Out for 3 / bye this week / may have peaked.

    Was going to hold him, but if I trade, it will give me 18 for this week. May be the straw that broke the Camel's…ribs?!

    • B-Mac says:

      …I suppose my second point above isn't all that relevant, come to think of it.

      • Kev says:

        I'm playing it week by week with him. Next week I'll look at my head to head player and see if I can win. I'll have 10 out next week (inc him) so I might just hold him through the byes.

  18. throttlefinger says:

    Rawkin report, Barron.

    VC: JPK. C: Jobe. JPK going 143. Exactly. Any less or more and take as harbinger that Jobe will do better.

  19. Hotplates says:

    Thinking

    Mitchell > Burgoyne

    Pyke > Jamar

    Plus also thinking of Cotchin > Ward, haven’t enjoyed Cotchins getting tagged, plus ward makes me $10k plus what he makes money over coming weeks. Still have about $400k after this and ready to upgrade others post byes…

    Thoughts?

  20. Nic says:

    Just a quick question

    Are players that have the bye this week available to loophole with, or are the considered “played” at the start of the round

    Cheers

  21. shallots says:

    according to another post "players are locked out when full lockout begins at the start of the LAST game"

  22. Michael says:

    G'day Barron, super article as usual, always tops reading mate!

    I've developed a slightly different weekly "top 10" – I've done a spreadsheet of top performers per position each week based on a SC team of 8 x DEF, 10 x MID, 4 x RUC, 8 x FWD.

    For example, this week's "team of the week" (or TOTW as I like to call it) is:

    DEF: Gibson (HAW) / Smith (ADE) / McVeigh / Fletcher / Burgoyne / Langdon / Bartel / Hansen
    MID: Ward / Montagna / GAJ / Polec / Libber / SJ / Jack / Rocky / JPK / Beams
    RUC: Jamar / Jacobs / Sandy / Ryder
    FWD: Breust / Roughy / Higgins / Dahlhaus / Lynch (GCS) / Dawes / Elliott / Gray (PTA)

    (By the way, having this team with the highest scorer (Ward) captain would have gotten you a total weekly score of 3095!)

    I then collate the number of times a player has been in TOTW across the season.

    Leaderboards:

    DEF: Bartel (3 times), Smith (3), Swallow (2), Hanley (2), Birchall (2), SMitch (2), Hooker (2), Jaensch (2), Hibberd (2), Gibson (2), McVeigh (2), Burgoyne (2), Langdon (2)
    MID: GAJ (7), SJ (4), Montagna (3), Murph (3), Dal Santo (3), Sidebottom (3), Jones (3)
    RUC: Jacobs (5), Sandy (4), Cox (3), Mumford (3), Warnock (2)
    FWD: Breust (3), Elliott (3), Zorko (3), Riewoldt (3), Westhoff (2), Hawkins (2), Pav (2), Danger (2), Harvey (2), Dahlhaus (2), Roughy (2), Gray (PTA) (2)

    This will hopefully highlight all the players that "go big" across the season on a consistent basis – ideal captain and VC territory!

    What do you think? I'm starting to think I've got too much time on my hands…..

  23. Captain joc says:

    Thoughts on Michael Johnson?

    • Remy says:

      If consistency is what you're after I don't think you can go wrong.

    • Beady Eye says:

      Be wary if either McPharlin or Dawson are out – Johnno has to play more defensively when they aren't in the team.

  24. Remy says:

    What would you say Tom Cutler's JS is like, and which trade option do you like better?

    Option 1.)Jaensh-Cutler
    Fasolo-Dahlhaus

    Option 2.)Jaensh-Rampe
    Dangerfield-Dahlhaus
    (These are AFL Fanstasy trades)

    • GarglesnarfFC says:

      Not sure why you would trade out Dangerfield or Fasolo. Danger is premium and unless injured you hold him. Fasolo should be back round 9 and still has plenty of dollars to go up and may well represent a cheap F6 in a year when the forwards are a total basket case. However, IF there was a Rookie on the bubble this week then Fasolo down to them would work nicely (Ambrose, I'm looking at you!) but otherwise I would him until next week and see if he's back.

    • Derek says:

      I can’t see these trades making your team better. Rampe??

  25. Remy says:

    What about Sam Mitchell to Tom Cutler?
    Then next week turn a Lewis Taylor type into Stevie J.

  26. Derek says:

    I heard that champion data have reclassified 18 players and given them DDP status.

    Is this true, or it might only be happening for AFL fantasy?

    • Remy says:

      At this stage I believe it's only for AFL Fantasy.
      Dahlhaus is now DPP (FWD, MID)
      Goldsack is now DPP (FWD, DEF)

      • Loic says:

        I reckon Dusty should get upgraded to DPP (FWD, MID, DEF) seeing as he plays about a third of the time in all 3

    • Beady Eye says:

      They did do it for Blicavs last year (RUCK, MID) but that was prior to the Round 1 lockout.

      Not sure if it's been done mid-season for SC before.

  27. roger says:

    bruest is my vice captain. With Mitchell injured, bruest played pretty well in the midfield, although given it was a side that was being demolished. I'll take a punt and hope he pulls through well. Otherwise, got the C on sandilands. Would love to put the C on watson or griffen, but just haven't had the output I'd like this year.

  28. Christos says:

    Hi community. Will Supercoach change DPP status mid season this year like in the other AFL fantasy game? It would be awesome if they did.
    Anyone in the community got any intel on it?

  29. Gab says:

    what do people think of trading pyke to charlie dixon???
    Agree/disagree why???

    • The Mullet says:

      It goes without saying that whoever you bring in now has to be a keeper….ummmm, yes I just said it……Nothing against Dixon, but I think Goldy is outstanding value at the moment. He has proven how good he is before.

    • matt says:

      stop asking the same question GAB, youve said it like 4 times, so just make the choice, go with what feels right

  30. The Mullet says:

    Who is the best value fallen defender to bring in through the byes…..Corey Enright, Harry Taylor or Shannon Hurn?

  31. Mark says:

    Ive got 440 thousand for a backmen

    Is jack grimes a good pick ?

    • Remy says:

      Consistent performer. he’s been in my team since rd 1. Just a warning though….. He plays in defense all game (so don’t expect him to be winning any centre clearences)

  32. Gold Coast Blues says:

    I'm testing my balls of steel by putting Rhyce Shaw in for Mitchell. Going to use him through the bye rounds and then upgrade him at the end – he should make a bit of cash over this period. Lots of defenders on the way down – will be able to pick Mitchell back up cheap cheap cheap around round 17 – just in time for the finals.
