VonCrow_smallHowdy folks, and welcome to our Round 16 Supercoach Scouting Report.

Round 16 seemed to be a fantastic round for most people, with scores up in the 2500+ range for a lot of teams. It seemed everyone was firing this week, with some massive scores from a lot of players, but also a few duds with the likes of Tom Liberatore (65 Supercoach Points), Brent Harvey (71 Supercoach Points), Robbie Gray (89 Supercoach Points) and Marc Murphy (73 Supercoach Points) failing to hit those big scores we expected of them in Round 15. Round 15 is over though, so it’s time to look ahead and to see if we can predict what lies ahead in Round 16!

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 Scorers List for Round 15
Image 1

Steele Sidebottom leads the pack for Round 15 with a fantastic 178 Supercoach Points upon return from his 3 game suspension. Also, Trent Cotchin is alive! There’s still some juice left in him for 2014, with a great game that saw him kick 5 goals to go along with his 31 possessions. Jacobs absolutely spanked Matty Lobbe to the tune of 163 Supercoach Points and winning the Showdown Medal for his fantastic performance. Nathan Fyfe has his 2nd week in a row in the Top 10, with a nice return of 158 Supercoach Points, and although it was a disappointing result for the Roos, Dal Santo did his part for your Supercoach side, returning a score of 139 Supercoach Points.

And that leaves our overall Top 10 rankings looking like…

The biggest mover is Steele Sidebottom, pushing up to equal 5th with his fantastic Round 15 score. Gary Ablett continues his dominance with another Top 10 score and Joel Selwood is a welcome return, just scrapping into the Top 10 this week for his first appearance in 6 Rounds and gaining 4th place all to himself over Murphy, Pendlebury and Sidebum. The rest of the list has remained static, but with the likes of Sandilands, Ward, Roughead and Goddard dropping out of the Top 10.

Captain Pick(s):

Brent Harvey has a stinker last week, but has been in some good form over his last 5, so he could be an option here. Goldstein has some good scores against the Hawks, and has scores of 166 and 122 in his last 4, so he could be another one to consider too.

@ MCG Averages: 78.0 Supercoach Points, High Score of 104

Captain Pick(s):

Cotchin had his first really good Supercoach score for the year last week, but has averaged 32 possessions over his last two games, so it looks like he’s beginning to turn his year around. Rockliff has a 5 round average of 128.80 to his name, so it’d be hard to pick between the two here. Pearce Hanley is also one to consider, when he gets let off the chain like he did last week, he can be a very damaging player.

Total VS GWS Averages: 4 games, 105.25 Supercoach Points, High Score of 125
@ Spotless Stadium Averages: 99.50 Supercoach Points, High Score of 105

Captain Pick(s):

Ward has a 5 round average of 125.80, with 4 scores above 120 in that time. He scored 92 against Adelaide earlier in the year, but didn’t play half the game due to being concussed. After a very slow 5 weeks, with 5 scores sub 100 and 2 in the 70’s, Danger finally hit back with a nice score of 119 against Port. He has absolutely destroyed GWS in the past, so he’s someone to consider. Jacobs has a 3 round average of 145.33 over his last 3, with his last two weeks producing scores of 147 and 163. Going up against Mumford might be a test, but Mumford has never scored well against the Crows in the past for whatever reason, so he could have another big game.

@ Metricon Stadium Averages: 108.0 Supercoach Points, High Score of 115

Captain Pick(s):

Probably the worst matchup for the year for many Supercoachers who rely on Pendlebury and Ablett week to week for their VC/C picks. Still, it’s impossible to ignore Ablett here though, irregardless of how well the likes of Pendlebury or Sidebottom are travelling.

@ TIO Stadium Averages: N/A

Captain Pick(s):

Game is being played at TIO Stadium in Darwin (not to be confused with TIO Traeger Park in Alice Springs). Fyfe has a 3 round average of 143 and is in absolutely fantastic form. It’d be hard to consider anyone else here. Melbourne put up a good fight against the Dogs last week, but it didn’t really translate into anything noteworth in terms of Supercoach scores. Jamar had a big game against Will Minson, who’s no slouch, but might find it a bit harder going against Sandilands.

@ Adelaide Oval Averages: N/A

Captain Pick(s):

Gray has hit a bit of a cold streak over the past 3 rounds, being held to under 100 Supercoach Points in that time (only 5 times this year it has happened). Still, he’s every chance to break that streak here, and along with Travis Boak, who has a very good record playing at home at Adelaide Oval. Goddard could be in line for the Kane Cornes tag here, so I might be a bit weary of that matchup this week.

@ Etihad Stadium Averages: 90.51 Supercoach Points, High Score of 161

Captain Pick(s):

Murphy has been down on form somewhat since the big 156 he scored in Round 11, with 2 sub 100 scores and also missed Round 14 due to a late injury, leaving him with a 3 round average of 89 and a 5 round average of 99.60. In 12 games against the Saints he’s never scored higher than 118, so i’d be skipping him again this week. Montagna has also been quiet, with only one 100+ score (last week) in his last 6 games. I would likely skip this matchup.

Captain Pick(s):

Franklin has probably been the best in form Swan at the moment, with a 3 round average of 134.67. His record at Patersons isn’t all that flash, but he’s shown that if he’s on, he can boot a big bag of goals. JPK has been in solid form lately, with a 5 round average of 118.20, but hasn’t been able to hit a big home run score since Round 9. Could this be the week he gets back to his best?

Captain Pick(s):

It’s a tough one to judge Stevie J here. His 5 round average sits at 86.20, but his recent 3 game form against the Bullies has been top notch. This might be the pick for those who like to take big chances I think. Selwood had a good score last week, but is dealing with hamstring issues, which makes me hesitant to rely upon him to put up another big score here. Libba had a stinker last week and his short history against the Cats makes him another tough one to judge, but sometimes you’ve just got to back in your premo’s and hope for the best!

BARRON VON CROW’S CAPTAIN SELECTION(S):

Prior to his Showdown performance, I wouldn’t have picked Dangerfield this week, but he looked in good nick and he has some great form against GWS, so I’ll likely be taking him as my VC and Gary Ablett as my Captain. I may also consider Tom Rockliff in his Richmond clash as my VC as well. I traded Nat Fyfe in last week, so he’s also a very intriguing option and I could go the Ablett VC / Fyfe C loophole route as well.

So who are you guys looking at for your Captains picks this week? Let us know in the comments below, or hit us up on the Twitter @BarronVonCrow

    Thoughts on Andrew Walker to Kade Simpson? Walker is a massive stain in the undies

    • Mozz says:

      waste of a trade in my opinion if you have 12 or less trades. Gotta stick to your guns

      • Dustin says:

        its a waste of a trade if you have 12 or less? respect to you if you have around 12 and doing good mozz. As I have always learned stick to your guns unless they are injured

    • GarglesnarfFC says:

      Avoid Carlton Scano, better value elsewhere

  2. Sarah says:

    Tossing up between Danger or Rockliff as VC with Ablett as C.

    • Mozz says:

      I'm going with Rockliff. Some players don't go so well against lower sides like GWS, and Danger might just be plonked at FF to rest him for future weeks to come. I expect sub 100 from Danger

      • Sarah says:

        Last year Danger was 'plonked' at full forward against GWS, kicked 4 goals and scored 147 SC points. Remember, the crows are fighting for a spot in the finals… there won't be any 'resting' going on.

        • BarronVonCrow says:

          9.4 over his last 2 games against GWS. I get the feeling this may be his "rest" week again with him playing the majority of the game forward and someone like Lyons or Matt Crouch moved into the midfield for most of the game.

          • Sarah says:

            I reckon you're right Barron. But resting Danger at full forward doesn't appear to lessen his Supercoach scoring… if anything it increases it!! Wish I had the VC on him earlier in the year when he scored that 192 against GWS.

    • Jahah says:

      Sarah I don't think ablest is a good pick as captain especially when he facing Brent macaffer this week.

  3. Mozz says:

    I will be going Rockliff into Ablett this week. Brisbane against Richmond should be a good scoring ground for Rockliff, and if he gets 150+ then i'll keep that score. Anything below 150 and the C will go on Gazza. He seems to do well against good teams so against collingwood and at Metricon should = a big score

  4. SamuelScoach says:

    Buckley stated that he will not be letting Ablett off the leash this game.
    http://www.afl.com.au/news/2014-07-01/gaz-is-pies

    Changes my mind on Ablett C as Caff has kept other great midfielders to sub 100, not saying he'll keep Ablett to sub 100, but an unworthy captain score.

    • BarronVonCrow says:

      Yea, I saw that too which did have me slightly worried, but Ablett at Metricon is just too hard to pass up most weeks!

    • Dustin says:

      How many times have we worried about Ablett not doing so good because of the taggers?? And all those times he ends up getting 150 and we think to ourselves why we stress on him as captain. Just put the C on him and VC on a cheeky early option and let the good times roll!

  5. Derek says:

    Judd is in 0.38% of teams. To say he is a POD is an understatement.

    Murphy getting the attention, Judd looks like he is running well, only $497k, what you reckon?

    • Sarah says:

      I've noticed that too and if you're strapped for cash he could be a good option.

    • sharker4 says:

      Has been scoring well, a risky move considering his injury history though.

      • Derek says:

        I have one spot to fill in my midfield and have about $623k to spend, so I was going to get Fyfe. However I have a problem at F6 – I have Chappy.

        If a can save some cash in my last Mid upgrade I can also upgrade Chappy to Parker.

        Choice will be:

        Fyfe & Chappy or Judd & Parker?

        My Mids are the same as everyone else: Ablett, Pendlebury, JPK, Beams, Cotchin, Johnson, Selwood, so was looking for something that might set me apart.

        • sharker4 says:

          What about Sloane? 50k cheaper and has been ultra reliable all year. Could you afford an upgrade to Parker with that?

        • jockreynolds says:

          Yeah like Dustin below – I don't mind something like a Dal Santo and Parker, or a A Swallow and Parker rather than a C Judd.
          Also – not sure I'd pull the trigger on Chappy just yet.. is it worth going a Swallow in the MID, then holding a trade and cash while you see how chappy pans out?

  6. Wattsieesq says:

    Gaz into Jellwood for me. I think the crows game is too close to the pies/suns for someone without SC gold : )

    • GarglesnarfFC says:

      Watch out as Selwood MAY be a late out

      • Wattsieesq says:

        Thanks Garglesnarf. As it turns out, I've been asleep at the wheel and can't use the loophole this week. I'll just chuck the c straight on Gaz and cross my fingers.

  7. Shaun says:

    G’day fellas! Is Mark Lecras seeing more midfield time??

    • Dustin says:

      Don't worry about the Frenchman, just focus on a proven premium fwd :)

    • jockreynolds says:

      I'm a bit sus on the old Frog. As soon as he gets a bit of a run at things he's injured or stuffed in some way. Leave him alone I reckon mate

      • Shaun says:

        Thanks for the advice guys and to you Jock for your continued brilliance! The community are extremely greatfull!

  8. shayne says:

    my fwd premo's so far are R.Gray Danger D.Martin and Dalhaus and my plan is to get Boomer in a week or 2, for my last spot i was tossing up between Franklin and Parker so my question is who would be the better inclusion taking into account money is no object and still have 9 trades left

    • Donavan says:

      Buddy is flying. He has the ability to score huge, and has found his form after a slow start. Buddy will outscore Parker most weeks from this point, and will have some huge scores.

    • jockreynolds says:

      Gday Shayne – I'd actually see Parker as the boy to go with. I reckon Budulounce has been playing out of his skin, is closer to his roof than his norm, and I still reckon he will drify back towards delivering weeks of spud output. Parker is proving to be a nice reliable sort – getting plenty of quality mid time, and is performing around his norm hence value for money. I'd go Parker

  9. BCHawks says:

    I expect Griffin to come back this week and get the tag so Libba should turn his recent form around , so I will be going V Ablett/Pendles haven't decided yet and the C on Libba.

  10. Donavan says:

    I have avoided the sideways trade all season, but I am considering one at this time.

    I am thinking Roughead to Parker.

    I am just not sure I what the inconsistency of Roughead come finals time, my other players in or capable of playing in the forward line are-

    Dangerfield, Gray, D.Martin, Dahlhaus, Zorko, Franklin, McGovern, Shenton, S.Lloyd

    So, I guess I could also trade Roughead out for a mid around $510k, and bring one of my swinging fwd/mid back into the fwd line.

    I have Mids- Ablett, Pendlebury, D.Beams, Priddis, Goddard, Cotchin, Miles, Arces plus 2 swinging fwd/mids.

    Alternately would you keep Roughead?

    • Schnook says:

      Swallow.

    • Hazey says:

      I’d be keeping Rough head this week. Hansen no certainty to come back in and whispers of Thompson being out also will have North seriously undersized in defence!

    • Derek says:

      I don't mind Roughie in my team. There just isn't a lot of alternatives this year

  11. Mike says:

    have got ablett,pendelbury,beams, NDS, gray,murphy,selwood,shenton(miles,hartung)
    Have got $380k in the war chest
    Thinking of going shenton to JPK
    Would be appreciated if u had any other thoughts on who to bring IN
    Tanks

  12. Nick says:

    HI guys, my team is:
    DEF: Bartel, McVeigh, Swallow, Burgoyne, Hanley, Hurn (Georgiou, Tippett)
    MID: Ablett, Beams, Selwood, Dal Santo, Stevie J, Wines, Vince, Shenton (Hallahan, Acres)
    Rucks: Sandilands, Jacobs (Derickx, Currie)
    FWD: D Martin, Danger, Breust, Zorko, Wingard, LeCras (Ambrose, Cameron)

    6 trades left with $25,600 in the bank.
    Was think the following:
    this week: Ambrose > Kersten, Derickx > Martin
    next week: Hallahan> Honeychurch, Shenton > Parker via Dangerfield.
    then bring in a rookie for DEF bench cover.

    OR should i just complete my team with parker this week?

    should have an easy win this round regardless, but playing the other top 3 teams the last 3 rounds..
    not worried about having trades for finals as ill be O/S… but will need bench cover for finals

    thoughts are much appreciated

    • Donavan says:

      Priority would be to get Parker in.

      Wouldn't worry about getting S.Martin, that train has left the station IMO.

      Can you do….Ambrose & Shenton for Parker & Kersten ($ must be close)

      • Nick says:

        thanks Donavon, thinking about it, Parker is a must this week.
        I could do that, just worried about my ruck cover.
        What do you think about
        Shenton & Derickx for Parker & Brown? (that depends on what the lineups are this week)

  13. TOM says:

    Hi community, need your thoughts on my team

    backs: swallow, bartel, burgoyne, hanley, hurn, mcveigh, (cutler, georgio)
    mids: ablett, pendles, beams, rocklliff, selwood, ward, kennedy, k.mitchell (hartung, acres)
    rucks: mummy, sandi (derickx, thurlow)
    fwds: danger, zorko, wingard, parker, martin, mcgovern, (honeychurch, cameron)

    I have 5 trades left and $80,900 left in the bank.
    I'm currently 6th on my league ladder.
    Was thinking of maybe going cutler to zak jones to free up some cash or derickx to ben brown to free up some cash

    • Itchy Nuts Pieman says:

      Gday Tom. If your going for a cash grab make it as big as possible. So the Derickx trade is a better option. Would give you enough cash to turm McGovern or K Mitchell into a premo. Have you got Dustin or Stefan in your FWD line?

  14. Kristofor says:

    Hey all,

    I have Suckling and Jaencsh in defence.
    Thinking of upgrading one of them (Probably to Bartel).
    Which would you trade out?

  15. Pots says:

    First time I have posted a full team so would appreciate your thoughts. 11 trades and $200,500 to play with.

    BACK: Bartell, Malceski, Swallow, McVeigh, Hanley, Enright (Laidler, Bews)
    MID: Ablett, Pendles, Jelwood, Rocky, Murphy, Barlow, Shenton, Miles (L.Taylor, Michie)
    RUCK: Sandi, Nic Nat (Derickx, Currie)
    FWD: Harvey, Danger, D.Martin, Parker, Zorko, Ambrose (Lloyd, Cameron)

    • TOM says:

      Upgrade ambrose and downgrade lloyd to honeychurch

    • BCHawks says:

      Hey Pots your team is looking pretty good but your midfield is a bit weak but with 11 trades left you are doing pretty well. I would trade out ambrose for Parker and downgrade either Taylor or Derickx for a cheap playing rookie to free up some cash and then next week trade Shenton for Libba who should be cheap then and also next week you might won't to downgrade Lloyd to get some cash in the war chest in case one of your players gets badly injured. Hope your team goes well BCHawks.

      • Pots says:

        Thanks BCHawks. I have Parker so Ambrose > Parker is not an option. I would like to keep Derickx given Nic Nat is apparently to be rested at some stage,
        Was thinking Ambrose/Shenton and Lloyd OUT K Jack and Honeychurch IN
        This still leaves L Taylor as DPP in MID. So, who will score more from now on in – Ambrose or Shenton? Similar price, BE and good JS.
        Lloyd with a -tive BE in a shite team may still make some cash if he gets a gets a game????

  16. Matt says:

    I have 9 trades and $252,000 in the bank my team is:
    Bartel, Simpson, Birchall, Jaensch, Suckling, Langford (McDonald, Bews)
    Ablett, Selwood, Beams, Murphy, Thomas, Griffen, Aish, Dunstan (L.Taylor, J.Martin)
    Sandilands, Cox (Ceglar, Brown)
    Dangerfield, D.Martin, Parker, Zorko, Roughead, Wingard (Ambrose, Cameron)
    Any suggestions?

  17. HeaveHo says:

    Morabito will be back this weekend!

  18. Cyril says:

    Undecided who to trade in out of
    Selwood
    OR
    Dal Santo.

    Normally id pick up Selwood but I’m unsure about the niggle
    He’s carrying. Also not sure if DS can sustain a 110 avg. Who will avg most for the remainder of the year?
    Thanks!

  19. Billy says:

    HIBBERD OUT. what do we do?? trade or hold?

  20. throttlefinger says:

    Tilting Danger VC and JPK C…yet Boomer or Del Santo may get the last minute VC (C on Danger…have a feeling.)
