Round 17 Supercoach Scouting Report

VonCrow_smallHowdy folks, Barron Von Crow here and welcome to our Round 17 Supercoach Scouting Report.

It’s a sad week people, the worst thing that could possibly happen to our Supercoach side has happened. The great Gary Ablett has suffered an injury, going down in the Gold Coast VS Collingwood matchup with a shoulder injury. We still don’t have an exact timetable on how long Gaz will be out for, but it seems for certain that he won’t be lining up for the Suns this week. This is going to make our Captain selections all the more difficult this week and if he’s out long term then a trade will definitely be in order. For many it’ll just be a case of moving down to the “next best” midfielder you don’t have, be it Fyfe, Rockliff, Pendlebury or Libba, but a few may go a bit more risky and downgrade to a cheaper option like Trent Cotchin or Nicky Dal and use that spare cash to upgrade another line. It’s not just Ablett we’ll have to deal with this round too; we’ve also got the suspensions of Tom Rockliff and Brendon Goddard to mess with our Supercoach sides, adding another headache as Rocky was shaping up as a prime trade target and Captain replacement for Gary Ablett.

And Gary Ablett being hurt wasn’t even only thing that went wrong last week, with Nic Nat, Matthew Pavlich and Kurt Tippett being late outs, Brian Lake doing his best Rowdy Roddy Piper impersonation and slapping a sleeper hold on Drew Petrie which will see him gone for 4 weeks, Brad Hill hurting himself during warmups and not playing as well as Brad Sewell hurting his hammy again, Charlie Dixon being subbed out with a calf complaint, the will they or won’t they play saga involving Joel Selwood, Jimmy Bartel and Stevie J (they all did in the end, but my stress levels went through the roof in the meantime) and Ben “Truck” Rutten copping some friendly fire which caused a broken nose and a concussion as well Patrick Dangerfield and Scott Thompson both suffering injuries that may put them in doubt for the big Hawks clash on Friday. Absolute madness all around for Round 16!

We’ve heard enough about Round 16 though, so now it’s time to move ahead and see what Round 17 has in store for us. Now because of the potentially difficult circumstances this week looks to give us, we’re going to be running with a Super Sized “Oh crap, Gary Abblet isn’t playing” edition of our Supercoach Scouting Report, so we’ll be taking a look at a few more players for each team along the way to make sure we explore every possible option for our Supercoach sides.

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, as always, will be our Top 10 Rankings from Round 16.

Image 1

Luke Parker had a great day at the office, leading the league in Supercoach Points with a 33 possie, 2 goal and 6 tackle game. Gunston claims 2nd place for the week with his 6 goal haul netting him 144 Supercoach Points. Tommy Rockliff makes his return to the Top 10 list, as well as Scott Pendlebury and Trent Cotchin had his 2nd big week in a row and looks to be hitting some good form at a perfect time. We must also note that players such as Tom Liberatore, Nathan Fyfe and Marc Murphy all barely missed out on making the Top 10 list this week with scores of 128 to Libba, 125 to Fyfe and 124 to Murphy.

And that leaves our Overall Top 10 Rankings at…
Image 2

While Gary Ablett will likely continue his dominance and stay on top for the rest of the year, Tom Rockliff has now edged out Tom Liberatore for 2nd place on the ladder, with Scott Pendlebury also leapfrogging Joel Selwood to sit in 4th place. Not much movement in the rest of the Top 10, with everyone else staying static on the list.

@ Adelaide Oval Averages: N/A

Captain Pick(s):

Jacobs has a 3 round average of 139.3 and while he has never beasted against Hawthorn, he’s in career best form and could be a chance to knock a big one out here. Rory Sloane is quickly surpassing Patrick Dangerfield as the best Supercoach option on the Crows and has shown the ability to knock up scores in the high 130’s, low 140’s this year. Once again, his averages against Hawthorn aren’t great, but he has the ability to come up big in important games. Danger will be running hurt, and with a target on his back, so I’d skip him this week. With Lake and Gibson out for the Hawks the Crows may be hoping their 3 tall attack will stretch the Hawks defenders. Walker has been solid since he’s returned this year, but only has Round 11 where he scored 146 Supercoach Points as a really good week. He would be a risky pick, but if you feel confident in your Captain selection, you may want to take that sort of leap.

Hodge hasn’t really produced any knock out Captain worthy scores this year, with a season high of 124, but he, along with Sam Mitchell may be the best bets for Hawthorn. Gunston and Roughead are always dangerous, but a Crows combination of Talia, Otten and potentially one of Rutten/Hartigan/Luke Thompson should have enough ability to ensure they don’t go goal crazy.

Captain Pick(s):

Joel Selwood has his 2nd highest team average VS Melbourne and has knocked out Captain worthy scores in his last 3 games against them. His score last week wasn’t great, but we should give him another look this week. Those Stevie J averages (170.33might cause more than a few Supercoachers to do a double take as he has absolutely annihilated Melbourne the last 3 times he’s played them. He’s managed to have two decent games in a row after a slow month previous to that, so he is definitely another VC candidate.

Captain Pick(s):

This will be the first of the two “home” games that North Melbourne play at Blundstone Arena in Tasmania (the second coming in Round 22 against Adelaide). Brent Harvey is always a big chance for a Captain worthy score, so we must consider him here. Drew Petrie has been playing much better over the past month of so and absolutely drove Brian Lake mad last week. He has a big 178 score in his last game against the Saints and if he was ever going to post a big score this year, this seems like a good week for him. On the Saints side, they haven’t been producing much for us in Supercoach, but Shane Savage has started to pick it up a bit. He was terrible in the first half of the year, but he’s been one of the Saints better players since his recall in Rd 14 with a 3 round average of 105.67. Still not enough to consider him here though. This will be Nick Dal Santo’s very first game against his old side, so he could be a chance for a big score also.

Captain Pick(s):

Cazaly’s Stadium is located up in Cairns in QLD, so this could end up being more of a Gold Coast home game than a Western Bulldogs one. Both Libba and Griffen had big scores in the earlier clash between these two teams in Round 10, Griffen having a season high score of 137. Libba will likely be the popular pick here, and with good reason! Both Prestia and Bennell have shown the ability to knock out big scores in the Suns midfield and with Ablett out we may be looking to one of the pair for a big score here.

Captain Pick(s):

This may be the first time I can remember in several years that Brisbane haven’t had a member of Triple R (Rich, Redden and Rockliff) out on the field for them. Doubt there will be much on offer for Brisbane apart from Pearce Hanley who has shown he can knock up big scores, but you’d think he’d be the #1 target for the Eagles this game. Priddis continues to be an underrated source of Supercoach points, he has a 3 round average of 121.33 to his name, and could score big going up against a Brisbane midfield without 3 of it’s best players. Nic Nat has scored well against Brisbane in the past, but hasn’t shown much consistency this year, so he would be a high risk, high reward option.

Captain Pick(s):

More than a few options available to use in this game, with JPK, Franklin and Murphy all looking like legitimate options. Kennedy has never scored big against the Blues, but has shown the potential to put up scores between 130 and 150 this year. Franklin is a gamble as always, but prior to the West Coast game had scores of 146, 121 and 137, which we’d probably take to the bank this week.

Captain Pick(s):

Trent Cotchin has a 3 round average of 131.67 and scores of 168 and 133 in his last two games. He’s finally started to look like the player we know he can be, so hopefully he can continue the roll he’s started against St Kilda and put up a big score here. It will be interesting to see if the Power sends Kane Cornes his way, which could put a big dent in his scoring potential. Martin has been extremely consistent since Rd 9, never scoring below 100 since then and has two captain worthy scores of 134 (VS GWS) and 148 (VS Sydney) to his name. Could be a chance for another big one here? Some may also look in Jack Riewoldts direction since Port will once again be without their spine with Carlile and Trengove missing due to injury.

Port will be looking to bounce back from consecutive losses, so we might see a big score from the likes of Robbie Gray, who has only scored above 100 once since his big score of 140 in Round 12. Matthew Lobbe has yet to play Richmond in his AFL career, so he’ll also be looking to have a big one. He had back to back scores of 150 and 145 in Rounds 12 and 13, so he’s always a threat to put up a big score. Boak as well has shown the ability to knock out a Captain worthy score this year as well.

Captain Pick(s):

Swans score of 143 in Round 6 was the last time he scored 100+ this year, and while he is capable of notching up big scores against Essendon, I probably wouldn’t take the chance. Pendlebury or Sidebottom look to be the picks here, Pendlebury is Pendlebury and scores 120+ more weeks than he doesn’t and Sidebum has a very good record against Essendon recently, to go along with a huge 178 he scored in Round 15.

Captain Pick(s):

I think Nat Fyfe will be the man for a number of Supercoachers this week, with a 3 round average of 142 and a 5 round average of 132.60. He has only played the one game against GWS previously, but has been one of the best players in the AFL over the past month, so I don’t think you can go wrong with him here. Callan Ward has been very consistent in Supercoach this year, with a streak of nine straight scores of 100+ being broken last week, but a streak that included some quality scores against good opposition including 145 (VS Port), 142 (VS Hawthorn) and 135 (VS Essendon). Mumford VS Sandilands could end up being a wash, so that may make more than a few skip that matchup for this week.

BARRON VON CROW’S CAPTAIN SELECTION(S):

There looks to be a good spread of games this week, and the Collingwood VS Essendon game up last is helpful since it’ll give us plenty of options to pair Pendlebury up with someone. I originally had plans on a Rockliff/Fyfe combo, but that has gone out the window, so I’m looking at a Tom Liberatore as VC (my Ablett trade) and Pendlebury/Fyfe as Captain. My loophole situation may get a bit tricky however, as players like Max King, Alexis Georgiou and Charlie Cameron are in games #1 and #2 on the schedule this week, and if players such as Zac O’Brien or Patrick Cripps are named, I’ll be completely out of loophole options. In the event of not having a loophole option, I’ll likely take Pendlebury as my “safe” Captain choice.

So who are you guys looking at making VC and C in this Gary Ablett-less round? Let us know in the comments below or hit us up on the Twitter @BarronVonCrow

    heard gaz is out for season, having a reconstruction :(

  2. Danny says:

    Gaz out for season, who do we bring in now?

  3. Goku says:

    Gazman is gone for the season, So the Question is … Rocky or Priddis … Is Rocky worth the wait?

  4. Scano says:

    Ward for gazza looking the goods!

  5. notasupercoach says:

    Tossing up whether to go Stevie J/Libba as Vice and then do Pendles/Libba(f stevie fails) as capt. thoughts?

    • BarronVonCrow says:

      How is your loophole situation? I'd probably go Stevie J into Pendles myself, just because of that 170 average for Stevie J over his last 3 games against Melbourne.

  6. BCHawks says:

    I don't have any loophole coverage after the Stkilda V North match so I am forced to either put the V on Dangerfield or Jacobs and then the C will go on Pendles.

    • BarronVonCrow says:

      Reckon you'll be fine with the C on Pendles, so take the risk on Danger/Jacobs having a big one and hope for the best!

  7. TOM says:

    What is a better trade
    a. Ablett to Libba and McGovern to Gray
    b. Ablett to Barlow and Kane Mitchell to Dal Santo
    c. Ablett to Fyfe and Kane Michell to Miles
    d. Ablett to Fyfe and McGovern to Motlop

  8. @lk_neate says:

    Sloane or Fyffe for Gaz???

  9. shayne says:

    Was looking at Levi Greenwood as a trade down for Ablett. Thoughts??

    • BarronVonCrow says:

      Interesting POD choice. Has averaged 114.87 over his last 9 games, only 1 score below 100 in that time. Has shown he can belt out a 130+ score too. Risky, but could pay off in the end.

  10. Wattsieesq says:

    I don't have cover and am going to cope a donut with Floggard unless acres plays, so Fyfe in for Gaz for me. Captain will be libba into Pendles.

    • Derek says:

      I think Acres will play this week

      • Rayza Ray says:

        There is no one talking about him I went onto website and nothing on the injury front… Is he right to go, did he play last week in the 2's? Derek what have you heard to think he will play this week.

        • Beady Eye says:

          Had 18 touches, 3 tackles and 0.1 in the VFL last week.

          With St Kilda's situation, I'd imagine they'd be keen to get him back in the team as soon as he's right to go.

  11. Big Sauce Jacobs into Pendles for me this week!
    Ablett has become JPK.
    Rocky and Goddard go to Bench
    Zorko swaps with Church into the guts
    Church to FWD bench and Breust onfield.
    Hanley swaps with Hunt into the guts,
    Hunt to DEF bench, Hibberd onfield….

    Damn Rocky and Goddard!!!

  12. TOM says:

    Is it worth getting Griffen as my last mid

    • jimmy says:

      griffen looked good against geelong, i believe he scored over 100. If im not mistaken he has been injured a bit but he is a proven premium who could be a great pick up

    • Tommy says:

      Get Libba, Griffen gets the tag

  13. TOM says:

    Who is better Libba and R.Gray or Fyfe and Dalhaus

  14. jimmy says:

    who is the best out of these boys?
    Fyfe
    Libba
    Sloane
    Barlow

  15. Tommy says:

    Fyfe or Rockliff for Gaz? Cheers

  16. Osh says:

    Apparently Leuenberger has buggered up his Achilles that he injured back in 2012. Looks like Stefan Martin is gonna be a keeper. http://www.footywire.com/club/sports/player-1722-

    • BarronVonCrow says:

      I noticed that, and it's good news since Martin absolutely laid a massive egg when Brisbane played him up forward with Leuy last year.

    Community looking for devine intervention-

    My team as it stands now-

    Def – Swallow, Bartel, Malceski, Hanley, Enright, Firrito (Schoenmakers/Tippett)
    Mid – Pendlebury, Priddis, D.Beams, Cotchin, D.Martin, Zorko, Miles, Ablett (Goddard/Acres)
    Ruck – Sandilands, Naitanui (Lycett/Lobb)
    Fwd – Gray, Dangerfield, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Roughead, McGovern (Shenton/Lloyd)

    6 trades and $24.9k in bank

    Thoughts are-
    1. Trade Ablett to Stevie J
    2. Trade Firrito to McVeigh

    Next week-
    1. Trade Shenton to Mitchell (via swing)

    This would leave me with 3 trades, bench cover on all lines. And have a Def/Mid swing, and Mid/Fwd swings.

    Appreciate your thoughts community.

    • Donavan says:

      Alternately, I could do-

      1. Ablett for McVeigh (via Bartel)
      2. McGovern to Parker

      Next week-
      2. Firrito to Mirchell

      Thoughts please.

      • Cameron says:

        Second option mate, definitely wait a week for Mitchell and Parker is a very consistent premium

        • Garglesnarf FC says:

          Mitchell will keep going down for another 2-3 weeks,plus he may not play this week, meaning he won’t bottom out til round 19.

          Could be a superb trade in for week 1 of finals.

  19. Hazey says:

    Great commitment in holding Lloyd this long mate!

    • Donavan says:

      Actually Lloyd, Tippett and Acres have all come in handy as I have been able to loophole the likes of Firrito and Schoenmakers almost every week (last week being an exception), likewise Zorko and McGovern, and Miles in the mids. Those loophole players can come in handy.

  20. john snow says:

    Thinking of going Ablett down to Dal Santo. This gives me the money to go Wingard up to Parker. I'd really like to go Ablett to JPK but then I cant afford to fix the Wingard stain in my jocks.

    Then my only other real spud is Hooker in defense. Im hoping sam Mitchell may fix this at a cheap price.

    thoughts on these trades? I already have Pendles, Libba, Sloane, Fyfe, Beams, Selwood, McVeigh in mids

    • BarronVonCrow says:

      Sounds good JS. Nicky Dal is still good for a 105-110 score most weeks, and even more when he's on song and upgrading the 60-70's that Wingard has been producing for the 100's that Parker has been getting is a big upgrade.

  21. Rayza Ray says:

    Sorry Lads computer froze and double posted… I'm referring to Acres. Anyone got some news on him?

  22. Mike says:

    What does everyone think about my trades, have 6 trades left with 50k in the bank
    Ablett and McGovern OUT
    Option A – Sloane and B.Brown (DPP swing with S.Martin) and next week trade L.Taylor to T.Rockliff

    Option B – Sloane and S.Johnson (DPP swing with Danger, Parker, Martin) leaving L.Taylor or C.Wingaard bench cover

    Any other suggestions or thoughts appreciated

    • Donavan says:

      Who are your Rucks.

      If you have good rucks then option A sounds best.

      • Mike says:

        Sandilands, S.Martin, Pyke, Currie
        I have a feeling Sandilands will be rested sooner or later and Pykes output will increase if Derickx not selected

        • Donavan says:

          Tough call.

          Derickx hasn't played the last 2 weeks, and Pyke has been poor.

          I would probably go Ablett and Pyke for Sloan and Brown, giving you a good ruck coverage with loophole each week.

          Then get Rockliff in next week.

  23. Dom says:

    Fyfe or Sloane and why?

    • BarronVonCrow says:

      Can certainly make a case for both. Fyfe seems to have a bit of a higher ceiling than Sloane, but Sloane does have the advantage in tackles and disposal efficency, compared to Fyfe who gets more overal disposals (though more clangers too) and clearances. Biggest issue for Fyfe is his final 4 games which includes Geelong, Hawthorn, Brisbane and Port, compared to Sloanes Final 4 which is a bit easier with Brisbane, Richmond, North and St Kilda.

      I've picked Fyfe myself, but probably a decision you could pick either one and be happy with.

  24. Fabian says:

    To anyone who knows…
    What is the scenario for the Donor's league and getting into the JR division leagues?
    Will it be top 2 make it? Top 4 or top 8?

    Currently 9th in the Donor's League so knowing whether I can still make it through (a top 8 system) or not (a top 2 system) will determine how I work around the GAJ conundrum

  25. throttlefinger says:

    Sloane VC, Pendles C.

  26. Ty S says:

    Traded Levi Greenwood for Ablett…..
    How about Levi as Captain thoughts??

    • BarronVonCrow says:

      Greenwood can be a bit of a hit and miss kinda guy. I'd probably be more comfortable with him as a VC myself, but he is capable of knocking out a good score if he has a good game.

  27. Dutch Life says:

    Who to get in for Gaz.?

    Already have Pendles, Ward, JPK, Selwood, Cotchin, Murphy, Johnson.

    With Obrien and Acres on the Bench.

    I was thinking Rockliff but he is out this week,

    Fyfe, but worried about being rested,

    Libba, incositincy.?

    Any other options, I think I might go fyfe.?

    Would love your help community.

    I currently have 3 trades and $160,000.

  28. Alex says:

    Who should I trade out for Langdon in my backline? I can get any backman I want! My backline is currently Swallow, Bartel, Malceski, Hanley, Suckling and Langdon with Mcveigh in my midfield as a mid/back swap.

    Thoughts would be appreciated!

  29. grugeneski says:

    bartel, duffield or burgoyne

  30. Nath says:

    What does the community think about trading Honeychurch in purely to enable my mid-fwd swing?
    I currently have 4 trades left (after trading out Gaz) and am looking to trade out Z O'brien to Honeychurch.

    Any thoughts from the community would be appreciated
