# Supercoach Rd 17 : Rookie Scout Report

# Howdy folks, I’m Barron Von Crow and welcome to the Supercoach Scout Report.

Round 16 of the AFL season is now crossed off the list and it’s starting to look like Round 17 might be a bit of a blue light special for us (do they even do those anymore? Or am I just confusing the kids here with that reference?) with the likes of Dayne Beams, Jack Billings, Adam Treloar, Trent Cotchin, Robbie Gray, Scott Pendlebury, Daniel Hannebery, Max Gawn, Tom Rockliff and Joel Selwood all being around the low 500K range and facing further price drops thanks to be break evens.

That = big savings for you and me if you still have upgrades to do in your side. So, let’s go take a look at the last batch of rookies we may have for the year and see which ones we’ll want to be trading up to premo superstars.

**Adelaide VS Western Bulldogs**

**Andy Otten **(94 SCPoints) made his return to the Crows side, this time playing down back as a replacement for Kyle Hartigan. Hartigan is likely to be out for another 4-6 weeks, so Otten should maintain his spot in the 22 for the rest of the Supercoach season.

**Jake Kelly **(104 SCPoints) had a nice night teaming with Jake Lever, taking 8 marks while also having 9 tackles. That score is an equal career high for him and is only the 2^{nd} time in his career he’s eclipsed the 100-point barrier. His ownership percentage has hovered around the 2% mark all season, so he’s not massively relevant at this stage.

**Riley Knight **(86 SCPoints) again had a solid game and has been decent in his 2 games since returning from injury with scores of 72 and now 86. Again, not very relevant in Supercoach, with his highest ownership percentage being 1% in Round 5.

**Hugh Greenwood** was rested, but Don Pyke sounded like his return was a forgone conclusion in the post-match presser. The continued presence of Scott Thompson could see him moved back to being a forward, which will have an impact on his scoring potential.

**Hawthorn VS GWS**

**Ryan Burton** (64 SCPoints) did enough to hit his breakeven and gained $2,700, but now faces a BE of 87, which sits just above his year average of 82 SCPoints. His projected BE is currently set above 77 for the next month, so now looks like the high time to sell him at his current value of $405K.

**Blake Hardwick** (50 SCPoints) had a reasonably poor game by his recent standards (scores of 84 and 79 in his previous two games), but that can happen with rookie picks. His BE is 59 and his season average sits at 61 SCPoints, so he may be hitting near peak price. With someone like Joel Selwood sitting at $483K and with a BE of 165, it could potentially cost you just $150K to upgrade Hardwick next week.

For the Giants, **Daniel Lloyd** (44 SCPoints) played his 7^{th} game of the season, but thanks to his poor scoring (high score of 54 so far), his cash gain has almost been minimal at best. Still, at this time of year we may not have the time or trades to downgrade a downgrade, so he could still be an OK trade in target with the current injury issues at GWS.

**Harry Perryman **(70 SCPoints) had his highest score of his short career. Like Lloyd, he hasn’t gained much cash so far, but could be OK bench cover for the rest of the season.

**Collingwood VS Essendon**

**Matthew Scharenberg **(57 SCPoints) was a late call-up to replace the injured Jeremy Howe, but despite a 20-disposal game, he scored quite poorly, probably due to having just 5 contested possessions and 6 turnovers.

**Will Hoskin-Elliot **(82 SCPoints) now has a BE of 85, which sits just above his season average of 79. He’s likely to yo-yo around this range for the rest of the year and has alternated between scores of 60 and 80-90 each week since Round 10 (64, 90, 62, 91, 61, 82).

**James Stewart **(79 SCPoints) bounced back reasonably well from a pair of bad games and gained $5,300. His BE has been pushed back down to 42, which should see him have another price rise or two.

**Andrew McGrath (**90 SCPoints) produced his highest score since Round 10, which has pushed his BE back down to 33. He should keep making a bit of cash for at least the next two weeks, though that BE will jump back up by Round 19 unless he has another decent scoring game in that time. He’s still owned by 21.6% of teams.

**Sydney VS Gold Coast**

**Lewis Melican **(74 SCPoints) continued to show his ability to score well from limited possessions, likely aided by the fact he had just the 1 turnover, while booting a goal and having 7 1%ers included in his 14 disposals. In the last month he hasn’t eclipsed the 15-disposal mark, but is averaging 69 SCPoints in that time. His BE is 29 this week, so he should eclipse the 300K mark for the first time this year.

**Nic Newman **(80 SCPoints) had his lowest score since Round 12, but still finds his 5-round average sitting at 90 SCPoints. His BE is 98 this week, he went down $4,800 this week, you can probably bank on another minor one. He’s currently ranked as the #18 defender in Supercoach, but still finds himself above options such as Zach Tuohy and Heath Shaw and within 5 points over others such as Howe, Simpson, Hibberd and Harbrow.

**Ben Ainsworth **(23 SCPoints) may have been a one hit wonder after a score of 99 SCPoints in Round 15, while **Jarrod Witts** (108 SCPoints) continued to edge closer to keeper status and **Jack Bowes (**69 SCPoints) played his first game since Round 8 and produced his 2^{nd} highest score from the 8 games he has played in his debut season.

**Trent McKenzie **(72 SCPoints) played his first game since Round 14 of 2016 and had 17 disposals and 6 marks. Back in 2013 and 2014 he averaged 88 and 80 SCPoints, he hasn’t come close to hitting those averages in years, but he could be decent cover if he continues to play.

**Brisbane VS Geelong**

**Alex Witherden **(74 SCPoints) continued his terrific rookie form. He had 21 disposals, 6 marks and is now averaging 23 disposals across his 3 games. He’s still below $200K, so now might be your last chance to grab him at a decent price.

**Jarrod Berry **(85 SCPoints) continues to impress, with a 3-round average now at 76 SCPoints and a BE of 43, while **Matthew Hammelmann **(18 SCPoints) continued to score poorly when given AFL action.

**James Parsons** (98 SCPoints) scored his highest ever score, but his form has been yo-yoing over the last month, recording scores of 51, 82, 49 and 98.

**Brandan Parfitt **(71 SCPoints) returned from his injury and put up his 2^{nd} highest score in the 7 games he’s played, not that it helped many, with his ownership percentage dropping from a peak of 40.9% in Round 5 down to 7.2%.

**Wylie Buzza **(43 SCPoints) and **Zach Guthrie **(54 SCPoints) are both on the bubble this week, but haven’t had the greatest success so far and their job security may be a bit iffy for the rest of the year.

**St Kilda VS Richmond**

**Ben Long** (58 SCPoints) played his first game since receiving a pair of games in Round 4 and 5. That’s given him his first price rise of the year, but it was minimal, thanks to his scores of 28 and 22 in his first two games.

**Tyson Stengle **(30 SCPoints) saw his ToG% increase from 52% to 76%, but he still had just the 8 touches and didn’t kick any goals. Development games for him, which will serve him well in the future, but probably nothing to see in Supercoach.

**Dan Butler **(36 SCPoints) now has scores of 36, 14 and 36 in his last 5 games, although his BE sits at just 53 this week. I imagine his form will continue along the same sort of path for the rest of the year.

**North Melbourne VS Fremantle**

**Mitch Hibberd **(74 SCPoints) played his 3^{rd} game of the year and 22 disposals and 7 marks. Good result for him and hopefully he can continue it going forward, especially since it looked like at least 28.4% of all Supercoachers held on to him despite not playing between Round 1 and 14.

**Daniel Nielson **(58 SCPoints) played his first career game after being a 2^{nd} round pick in the 2014 draft. **Jy Simpkin **(55 SCPoints) returned from injury, but lost cash thanks to an injury hit score of 5 in his last game. His BE is 58 this week, so he could go down again, but might be an OK downgrade option in terms of job security for the rest of the year.

**Corey Wagner **(28 SCPoints) also played his 3^{rd} game of the year, but has scores of 9, 29 and 28 in his 3 games. I’d stay away.

The big news for the Dockers was the debut of **Ryan Nyhuis **(78 SCPoints) who booted 4 goals. He had just the 9 disposals though, so I wouldn’t be banking on that sort of score every week unless he can get his hands on the pill a few more times a game.

**Luke Ryan **(91 SCPoints) had his highest score of his career, having 19 disposals (15 kicks), 6 marks and 4 tackles. **Sean Darcy **(71 SCPoints) probably had a very good result considering he was taking on Todd Goldstein, he had 34 hitouts and has also recorded 7 tackles in each of his last two games. He’s still under $200K as well.

**West Coast VS Port Adelaide**

It probably wasn’t a massive surprise to see **Nathan Vardy **(65 SCPoints) produce his lowest score since Round 8 with the return of Scott Lycett to the side. His BE is 96 and is only owned by 4.7% of teams, but he might start bleeding cash if the average scores continue while Lycett takes more ruck time.

**Malcolm Karpany **(51 SCPoints) couldn’t back up his Round 15 score of 88 and finished with just 10 disposals and 3 tackles.

**Joe Atley **(45 SCPoints) debuted for the Power, he had 14 disposals, but that included 11 handballs. That may limit his Supercoach upside early. **Sam Powell-Pepper **(45 SCPoints) had his lowest score since Round 4, his BE is now up at 97, a score he has yet to beat this year. He’s still owned by 35.1% of sides, but could be time for those remaining owners to move him on.

**Matthew White **(41 SCPoints) also had a poor return after scores of 99 and 73 in his first two matches back, but he still has a BE of 52 and some more cash generation left in him. **Dan Houston **(91 SCPoints) had his highest score of the year and now has scores of 90, 82 and 91 over his last month of footy. The 5% of players who kept him will be happy with that.

**Carlton VS Melbourne**

**Sam Petrevski-Seton **(102 SCPoints) bobbed up with 3^{rd} triple digit score of the year. He had just 16 disposals, but 9 tackles and 12 contested possessions in there. **Ciaran Sheehan **(42 SCPoints) is on the bubble this week, but is averaging just 40 SCPoints so far this year, while **Harrison Macreadie **(41 SCPoints) played his 7^{th} game of the year and first since Round 10 and **Zac Fisher **(64 SCPoints) put up his highest score of the year.

**Joel Smith **(34 SCPoints) returned after hurting himself in Round 1, but didn’t score all that well, while **Mitch Hannan **(70 SCPoints) managed a decent score after 3 scores in the 50’s in his last 5 games.

Arousing, BvC. Begley (117k fwd) being talked up on Twitter by Woosha.

Jack Graham's ability to touch the bloody ball and lay a tackle would come in handy after last week!

Like to see Graham kept on ice till next year along with a few others.

Good point, Stirsly! Let's not hope for a repeat of the great rookie debacle that was 2017.

I am still holding Jake Spencer at R3, because there was always that chance he'd get a third game and make a few dollars. Still holding SPP at M8 because there were always more pressing trades. Just because this game hates me if I trade Spencer to Wylie Buzza I am a whole three hundred dollars short of going from SPP to Joel Selwood. Only have six trades left so based on break evens I thought maybe Spencer to Buzza now because Buzza is playing game 3 assuming selected. Then I gamble on price changes making up that three hundred gap between Joel and SPP for next week. Have I finally lost my mind? I see Joel's price as to good to pass up and rate him highly at finishing off a season.

Selwood has a BE of 165, so he should go down by more than SPP this week. Spencer to Buzza this week then SPP to Selwood next week should be do able.

To me the spencer buzza trade is just plain dumb at this stage, Buzza's js wouldn't be great he isn't scoring well enough to consider imo.

So you then would of made 2 trades at R3 and you might not even pocket 50k b4 you find Buzza back in the magoo's.

My name is Rick and I own Luke Shuey. It's embarrassing to admit, but since round 5 he's scored only one ton. I'm not sure how it got to this, I kept telling myself, "it's ok, it's not a problem, you'll come right". But it hasn't and now it's really starting to hurt. I thought I'd hit rock bottom, but then he scored 73 on the weekend. I realise now I have a to make a change. I guess, admitting I have a problem is the first step in getting help. Thanks for listening.

My name is Dice and I held Nick Riewoldt all year through the injuries and bad scores. Last week I traded him out after his dismal 45 and 1 ton over the last 10 weeks.

He tonned up on the weekend and dominated.

Hope Hurley does a number on you Friday night

Thanks for sharing, Dice. There's no judgement here. Stay strong.

Haha funny man Rick!

can see why you chose Shuey Rick but like Swallow jom and Roughy you have to bite the bullet I always thought roughy was good but finally got rid of him difference is Shuey may come good

My name is Russ and I am a Spudaholic lol

Keep coming back man

Time for SPP to go. Who do i bring in? seems to be no1 really but i need to make that cash

K.Jack or D.Swallow perhaps BB. Witherden and Hibberd obviously

Who is the best option for point scoring for the rest of the year, dollars not an issue.

A. Selwood

B. Tich

C. Zork

D. Zerrit

Titch, Zachary, Zorko, Selwood

Tich or Selwood … toss a coin.

there are some rubbish away strips going around now my team wants me to buy one Wouldn't let my dog sleep on the dees strip …The only good one is the doggies and the woods if you can call it an away jersey

I was getting the teams mixed up last weekend Neil when hawks played giants.

And the umps in grey, what is going on?

hawks have one of the worse remember that one couple years back shocker never had any problems with black or white shorts

Was that the Hawthorn power rangers arrangement or the one with the eighties style golf knitwear diamonds.

As for the Dees why can't they change rom red an blue to blue and red a mostly red strip wouldn't clash with Carlton and other dark ones like Port would it

would clash with the dons though Tibor remember when we kicked it to the red umpire and lost it was the golf one but the other was bad too cheers

Yeah, and their normal stripes are 'Poop and Piddle'. Yuk!

I am a big fan of having distinctly different clash jumpers. I used to umpire football and jumper clashes were the bane of my existence! Put a group of players into a pack wearing St. Kilda (Devon Meadows) and Essendon (Hampton Park) and all you see is a mass of black, red and white together.

Umpires a wearing grey as Richmond's lime green clash jumper actually clashes with the umpires!

My Tigers look like lemon meringue's with our away strip. I also see Adelaide have now followed us in this design – theirs is not any better.

Ninth placed Meringues. Must be a banner in that

Any of the rookies on the bubble worth going for? Or is waiting a week and assessing the next wave the best option?

There's nothing fantastic out there, Matt. Guthrie if you're really desperate, otherwise wait on Nyhuis (won't kick 4 every week) and Atley (went okay, just handballed a lot. ?? over ceiling)

Even those on the bubble won't make a lot of dosh … could be worth a wait and see. Especially if your trade out isn't set to lose heaps …. or if painting the fence … your target isn't looking at a big rise either. Many of the fallen Premos have more dosh to lose… Jelwood, Yeo, JJK, Rocky all worth waiting for..

Another 4 for FATSO, how many will he kick when his SKINO???

If you were going jump on key forward now, would you even bother or would you bite the bullet?

Thinking Jezza Cameron, Dixon, JJK (If named), Westhoff, Tj.Lynch

NRoo as he usually finishes seasons strongly. Worth a look?

How about a left-field option of J. Patton? Has had a good run post-byes, with 156 / 103 / 117.

Obviously a pretty risky but you could make up some ground as not many have him.

Any suggestions for my team this week. Here it is:

SPP to zerritt or titchell.

TiTch this week. Jelwood next week. Treloar to mid bench. Shaw for Def bench cover over Schaz may be handy while he is so cheap.

Toss a coin.

Any suggestions here?

I have 6 trades with $249.3k

Looking at trading SPP for TMitch but not sure what else?

Tuohy to Hurley and Cripps to Zorko would leave me with 6 trades and 113k.
