2013 Supercoach Forwards

The Monday Poll – What will you do with LeCras?

The Monday Poll – What will you do with LeCras?

As we said in Sunday night’s podcast poor old Mark LeCras has busted his arm and will be out for six weeks. And so it is that in just game 2 of the season we are faced with the first injury that will effect a huge chunk of all Supercoach and AFL Fantasy teams. Make […]

Great Debate: Mid priced forward options

Great Debate: Mid priced forward options

This issue is really beginning to sizzle folks and I believe that it is high time we fleshed this one out together as a community. We have an absolute stack of mid priced forward line options this season. Higgo, Crouching and I have been at each other like two bob watches on this one as […]

Fantasy Footy Radar 2013 – Nic Naitanui

Many of us had Nic Naitanui penciled in as our first picked Supercoach player in 2013 by the end of last season. News that he is now eligible as both a forward and a ruck made that a foregone conclusion. But all that has since changed and the news is not flash for those who were looking […]

Fantasy Footy Radar 2013 – Dustin Martin

  Round 5 2011. A 19 year old Dustin Martin smacks 4 goals through the big sticks on his way to 168 Supercoach points , 141 Dreamteam points and the respect of the football world. Damian Hardwick announces Dustin’s coming of age… 12 months later things aren’t so flash. He’s been struggling. He misses training. […]

Fantasy Footy Radar 2013 – Jarryd Roughead

You can snag the big Orange Roughie in either your Ruck or your Forward line in season 2013. We have 15 RUCK/FWDS in 2013 so this is one area of the game you need to have a think about at some stage. And big Jarryd Roughead looks a reasonable selection in 2013. There is already […]

Fantasy Footy Radar 2013 – Brent Staker

I warned him about this bloody LARS caper. Round 1, 2011. He’s had a solid first year at the Lions in 2010 after leaving West Coast. Has has a good 2011 preseason. Then bloody SNAP. Brent snaps his ACL after barely buttering a crumpet for the season. He wants to get back as quick as […]

Fantasy Footy Radar 2013 – Jimmy Bartel

  I have nothing but the most sincere, complete and utter respect for James Bartel. There is a place set aside for him at the Jock Reynolds Fantasy Footy Community banquet hall.. and he can have the drumstick as far as I’m concerned. Triple premiership player. Brownlow medalist. Norm Smith Medalist. All Australian. This bloke […]

Fantasy Footy Radar 2013 – Robbie Gray

This kid reminds me a lot of myself at a young age. Talented beyond belief. Incredibly effective in an unfashionable looking way. Ladies bloody love him. Before he made the big time he would get out of bed at 4am to head down to the abattoirs there in Adelaide to pack meat. A good boy. However […]

Fantasy Footy Radar 2013 – Dale Thomas

I would get a pen out and put a line through Daisy Thomas’ Supercoach and Dreamteam outputs from 2012. The chips just didn’t fall his way. After a breakout 2011 averaging up around 105 in both forms of the major AFL fantasy footy codes many experienced heads were expecting him to come out and nudge […]

It’s the end of season 2011. Tommy Rockliff has had a blinder of a season. He’s averaged 28 touches a game, 6 marks, 5 tackles and over 110 in both Supercoach and Dreamteam. The kid has just won the Best and Fairest for the Lions over club legend Simon Black. He’s 21 years old. How […]

Fantasy Footy Radar 2013 – Travis Varcoe

It’s easy to forget that this kid has been playing senior footy for 7 years. He ran out with Central Districts seniors in 2005 at 17. At 24 this season he still has a couple of years to recover from his ailments and hit a solid fantasy footy prime. Was chatting to Crackers from Geelong […]

Fantasy Footy Radar 2013 – Mark LeCras

I spat chips when Woosher Worsfold called me with the bad news during the 2012 pre-season. I am keen on the Little Frog as a footballer and as a bloke. In my opinion he was set to kick it up a gear and enter the Supercoach 95+ average territory. All that changed with a brutal […]
