AFL Supercoach 2012 tips guru Jock Reynolds

Also available for Round 16: This weeks Cattle Market and Jock’s Video Tips

What a sensational weekend of AFL Fantasy Footy we have just had folks.

While some of the popular captains like Dane Swan and Gary Ablett did not fire this week we had some marvelous outputs from your Deam Cox’s, your Matty Priddis’s and your Scotty Thompsons to name a few. Gotta say that I am really enjoying getting back into your straight down the line, no bye nonsense, all teams on deck Supercoach and Dreamteam.

We serve up another steaming hot helping of Fantasy Footy advice this week. Listen in to Peter Higginbotham, Crouching One and old Jock Reynolds as we waltz you through yet another week of Fantasy Footy gold.


Sam Winter · 09/07/2012 at 10:25

Is it me or is Beau Waters always the first person out with general soreness. Well it is either him or Ryan Hargrave.

Isaac · 09/07/2012 at 10:33

I'm looking to upgrade Giles THIS week. I already have Naitanui and would like a Jacobs or Roughead. What do you guys reckon?? Who would be the better option?

    Fyfe's shoulder · 09/07/2012 at 10:37

    Surely COX

      Jake · 09/07/2012 at 11:03


    Bryton · 09/07/2012 at 20:31

    Griffin, under-priced

      Marc · 10/07/2012 at 08:26

      +1 for Griffen being an interesting choice. Proved last year he score while Sandy was out. McEvoy would also be a decent choice. Don't buy into Jacobs score too much, he was awesome, but played the whole game due to Tippet and McKernan both getting injured and was rucking against Westhoff and Trengove for periods of the game.

Lachlan · 09/07/2012 at 13:42

G'day jock,

I only have the 3 trades remaining and my team is looking abit out of whack.

Tippet getting 23 giles getting 50. Should i consider using a trade to upgrade giles or should i lay off them? I'm very tempted.

Max · 09/07/2012 at 17:27

i've just got top of the league that matters to me! Considering i'm living in the UK i don't think i could have done this without the help of the community. Just got to continue this through to finals now.

Thanks Jock!

Bryton · 09/07/2012 at 20:19

Time to offload Broughton? if so for who? gotta be under 446,300

    Bryton · 09/07/2012 at 20:49

    If not, trade Greene or Zorko for Goodes?

      Zimmer · 10/07/2012 at 00:01

      Why would to you trade Zorko, he's performing at premium levels?

        Bryton · 10/07/2012 at 01:25

        yeah, I wouldn't, just asking though, just in case his output does drop and i have goodes or anyone else get too expensive for a straight up sideways trade.

    riley · 10/07/2012 at 01:05


      Bryton · 10/07/2012 at 01:25

      Had him since the start

        riley · 10/07/2012 at 01:44

        have u got any def/mid swingers? most at that price are averagin 80's..

Peter Higo · 10/07/2012 at 01:00


Back: Deledio, Goddard, Scotland, Waters, Lake, Heath Shaw, Bugg (Ellis,S.Edwards)

Mid: Watson, J.Selwood, Ablett, Swan, Dal Santo, Pavlich (Gibson, Sutcliffe)

Rucks: Maric, Giles (Redden, Stephenson)

Forwards: Franklin, Sidebottom, Chapman, N.Riewoldt, Stevie J, Cloke, Zorko (Milera, Smedts)

8 trades left – ANY SUGGESTIONS??

      riley · 10/07/2012 at 01:13

      maybe cloke? sub pavlova to forward and bring in a premium mid if u have the cash? and bugg for dempsey or or even dan nicholson…

        Matt · 10/07/2012 at 01:55

        cheers mate

      Bryton · 10/07/2012 at 01:28

      Get Giles and Bugg out of there, maybe Bugg for Dempsey, and Giles for Griffin, NicNat, Cox, McEvoy, Jacobs or Goldstein?

    MJ · 10/07/2012 at 04:28

    Peter – 8 trades is heaps for this time of year and not a bad team at all 😀

    You need a defender – surprised you didn't jump on carrazzo last week when coin was low – still might not be a bad option .. if your looking for a smokey maybe bugg to yarran

    otherwise as a last defender one of suckling, birchall or johnson

    Time to say goodbye to Giles in the ruck – would probably say this is the area id address first. Depends on cash i know but COX looks the business. I had an idea this year WCE were priming Cox for finals this year and I got him in two weeks ago when he bottomed out (at 540k). Would not be surprised to see a few more 150+ scores in the run home – def my best trade this year

    expensive now but still worth every cent

      Peter · 10/07/2012 at 09:48

      Who would I trade out to get cox?

        Mick · 10/07/2012 at 21:00


        Get Carrazzo too for Bugg. To get the extra $, you can trade one of your more spuddier forwards for Murdoch.

    bro · 10/07/2012 at 06:01

    waters for birchel asap

MJ · 10/07/2012 at 04:40


Back: Deledio, Goddard, Scotland, Johnson, Broughton, Lake, Carrazzo, (Darley,Spur)

Mid: Watson, J.Selwood, Ablett, Boyd, Priddis, Goodes (Gibson, Adams)

Rucks: Cox, Natinui (Jenkins, Stephenson)

Forwards: Franklin, Sidebottom, Chapman, Dangerfield, J Riewoldt, Martin, Zorko (Cloke, Dickson)

2 trades left – Team is finished or as finished as it is going to be – not overly happy with how it turned out – feel i made a lot of bad trades during the year. Might sideswap J Riewoldt or Cloke to Marc Murphy or Pendlebury and swing goddes forward.

Overall rank 470odd – too far behind the top to win main prize but would hope to stay in the top 500 and maybe climb inside top 300 overall – Maybe next year for the 50k

    Sam Winter · 10/07/2012 at 07:44

    You have a great team. Why would you ride off the 50k — Anyway with two trades left you can't do much but hope for the best — What I would do is trade players who are out for three weeks or more. If you still have two trades at the first week of finals:

    Trade J.Riewoldt/Cloke to a rookie forward. Then trade the other to a Dane Swan or Scott Pendlebury by subbing the forward into the midfield for Goodes. Higgo explained what to do in a podcast (sorry I can't remember which one).

    This is risky as a injury may well occur but will pay off if one doesn't.

    Good Luck.

      MJ · 11/07/2012 at 03:28

      Sam over 1200pts behind top dog with only 8 rounds to go .. its a bit like the goals per minute theory only its 100pts per round – 800pts was possible, 1200 is a stretch 🙁

      team is missing S Thompson, Pendlebury and Pav for the run home .. these three are key I believe .. few silly trades like J Roo and T Cloke were mistakes .. learned a lot this year, on top on all my leagues and hope to snag a couple of league wins 😀

      how are you going mate ??

        Sam Winter · 11/07/2012 at 06:49

        My teams down below if you wanted to see. Overall i'm 13000 so no for the 50k for me. Hope I could snag a great score in the upcoming rounds for the 1k. Thanks for asking mate.

    TheAnointedOne · 11/07/2012 at 08:09

    MJ, on its day your team could easily score 2500+

    Only area of improvement would be Lake, not sold on him. You have enough coverage for Buddy for the 3 weeks

    Great effort and always a barometer for advice…many thanks.

willys winners · 10/07/2012 at 06:19

Hey guys, just wondering who I can upgrade to get a break on the competetion. Currently first, but want to get that jump for finals. 8 trades, no cash!

      thanks mate, having a look now

    Mick · 10/07/2012 at 21:10

    1. Smith/Patton to Murdoch

    2. McDonald to Goodes

    3. Smith/Patton to someone cheap

    4. Giles – upgrade to best you can afford. Cox, Jacobs, Maric, Nat all good options

      willys winners · 12/07/2012 at 22:56

      thanks mate ! yeah deffs need to give giles the ass haha!

    buddy out for 2-3 doga

Sam Winter · 10/07/2012 at 08:15

My Team:

Backs: Deledio, Goddard, Waters, Birchall, Brougton, R.Shaw, S.Shaw (Smedts, Spurr)

Mids: Ablett, Thompson, Swan, Boyd, Mitchell, Priddis (Shiel, Sexton)

Rucks: Nic Nat, Mumford (Jenkins, Stephenson)

Fwds: Franklin, Dangerfield, N.Riewoldt, Harvey, Martin, Cloke, Hawkins (Zorko, Dickson)

Trades Left: 2

Remaining Cash: 5,100

Future Plans: Beau Waters blew it all! My plans were to wait until the first week of finals then downgrade Dylan Shiel into a rookie and then upgrade either S.Shaw, Smedts or Spurr to a premium defender. Now I will have to trade Waters.

Current Plans: I might trade Waters into a player witch will which will allow me to pocket some cash so I can upgrade either S.Shaw, Smedts or Spurr into Chris Yarren at the first week of finals (hoping I get in for starters). Please tell me who to put off for Zorko. Most would say either Cloke or Hawkins. Zorko and his good form need to be on the field.

That all seems like a good plan but I would like you guys in the community out there to give me your feedback. With your feedback please mention who you are putting captain this week. Thanks Guys.

    Dylan · 10/07/2012 at 17:58

    Buddy is broken, swing the axe! Or at least bench him so you can get zorko on the field

Sam Winter · 10/07/2012 at 09:26

Sorry community, need your help again.

I was looking at trading Beau Waters into either Carrazzo or Johnson but I don't know who. I would prefer Carrazzo because he has been more consistent, but trading into Johnson would leave me with an extra 20k which would come in handy when trading S.Shaw, Smedts or even Spurr into Chris Yarran.

So who would you trade in? Carrazzo or Johnson? Thanks for your help!!!

    HaPPy ChaPPy · 10/07/2012 at 10:31

    Heath Shaw after he gets smashed this week

    MJ · 11/07/2012 at 03:10

    Happy Might be onto Something there: Heath Shaw will come down over the next couple of weeks.

    Have you thought of bringing in Yarran this week for Beau Waters and then wait and see who you can afford to bring in a fews down the track for smedts or shaw when their value peak ??? would make sense as Yarran is about to have a massive jump

      Sam Winter · 11/07/2012 at 06:54

      Thanks mate. I think that's what i'll do. Trade Waters for Yarran and than see who I can afford. MJ you are a true SUPER COACH.

    TheAnointedOne · 11/07/2012 at 08:04

    Yep I went with Carrazzo last week…He will only get more free time when Murphy comes back.

pb · 10/07/2012 at 11:13

thoughts on the Buddy scenario?

My forward line is pretty good, could do with spreading that cash into defence.

Need a FWD up to 475k, I'm thinking abolut the following guys

N Riewoldt

J Lewis

A Goodes

B Harvey

any prefs there?

The FWD-MID link is a non-bonus for me as I've got Dangermouse, Chapman and Sidebottom already filling that role in FWD.

    Sam Winter · 10/07/2012 at 20:36

    1: Goodes

    2: N.Riewoldt

    3: Harvey

    4: Lewis

      Mick · 10/07/2012 at 21:11

      1. Goodes

      The rest

matty · 10/07/2012 at 21:01

Should I hold onto waters . Anyone ?

    Sam Winter · 10/07/2012 at 21:12

    500k is to much to be on the bench for 5 weeks. Trade him.

      MJ · 11/07/2012 at 03:12

      how many trades you got left ?? if you can afford to get use one i'd def trade .. Sam's right can't have that sitting on the pine for 5weeks .. plus its beau for ever injured waters, could end up been 8

      TheAnointedOne · 11/07/2012 at 08:03

    MJ · 11/07/2012 at 03:16

Paddy · 11/07/2012 at 03:23

Need some help…..Do i need to trade this week ??








5 trades… not much cash

    MJ · 11/07/2012 at 03:31


    Mick · 11/07/2012 at 04:17

    Martin – Goodes

whiteless · 11/07/2012 at 03:57

Jock i need help, Buddy and Martin are killing me i cant afford to have 2 60 point rookies in the foward line ( Saad, Treloar), ive got $174,000 in the bank.

Do i get rid of Treloar or Saad and swing Johnson fwd and look for a backman or do i just look for a prem fwd?

Backs: Deledio, H.Shaw, Goddard, Carrazzo, Johnson, Adcock, Lake, S.Shaw, Darley

Mids: Watson, Pendlebury, J.Selwood, Mitchell, Priddis, Dal Santo, Horsley, Gibson

Rucks: Muford, Kruezer, Stephonson, Derickz

Fwds: Franklin, Dangerfield, Rioli, Zorko, Harvey, Martin, Cloke, Treloar, Saad

Keep in mind that i have already used 1 trade to gain abit of cash (Redden to Derickz)

Please help!

    Mick · 11/07/2012 at 04:14

    Treloar – Goodes -> and you have a magnificent team!

    Alternatively, reverse your trade.

    Treloar – Murdoch

    Martin – Goodes

    Will get you more cash and you can look to upgrade Kruezer next week (Maric should go down a little, Ryder is cheap atm)

    If i were in your position, i would do my second option. At the very least, dont get dericks. Get a cheaper ruck who won't play, or have a look at Spencer from Melbourne.

      whiteless · 11/07/2012 at 04:49

      I like it Mick, Whats Murdoch's job security like? I haven't herd much about him.

      You have got me thinking about Goodes now

      Redden – Spencer

      Treloar – Goodes

      Leaves me with 5 trades left for finals

      Adam Kneale · 11/07/2012 at 06:16

      I rekon i have a very good solution.

      Reverse that other trade and make these 2 trades

      Franklin >Goodes

      Trolar> any prem

      TheAnointedOne · 11/07/2012 at 07:59

      That's my dilema as well, either wait for the Big Cox to go down or Ryder it who went down again this week…

Adam Kneale · 11/07/2012 at 06:03

Community HELP!!!

this is my team


Goddard, Carrazzo, Shaw, Deledio, Heppell, bugg, smedts.

(Darley, Guthrie)


Ablett, pendlebury, swan, Dal santo, Priddis, Boyd.

(Wingard, Croizer)


Kruezer, Giles. (Redden, Stephenson)


Franklin, Dangerfield, Harvey, Cloke, Johnson, Zorko, Adams. (Elliot,Hall)

Trades- 4

Salary- 84,700

Now i have two options which im not sure on.

Option A:

Trade Bugg to yarran this week. Then next week upgrade Adams to Tippett. This would give me 2 trades for finals in case of injuries.

Option B:

Make a downgrade this week, either franklin to a cheaper premium or elliot to murdoch(help on which would be great)Then Upgrade adams to goodes. And then next week upgrade bugg or Elliot(swing smedts) to a premium defender. This option would leave me with 1 trade for finals but a slightly better team

Help on which which much appreciated

    whiteless · 11/07/2012 at 07:06

    I would trade out Hall then swing young Billie to the foward line then bring in Chris Yarran, his starting to find form could become a $450,000 + comes finals time, plus carlton are starting to play good footy and he is a big part of there structure

    Franklin is too good of a player to give the boot, with a few weeks rest he will come bak fit as a fiddle and ready to kick 13 + goals agin i hope 🙂

    i think u need at least 4 trades come finals time so if u can afford to hold on to them (depending on where ur sitting on the ladder) then hold them

      Adam Kneale · 11/07/2012 at 07:34

      you think hold onto bugg then??

        whiteless · 11/07/2012 at 07:46

        well u only have 4 trades left and bugg is getting playing time, hall hardly plays. comes finals time u want players that are playing 1's footy not ppl running around in the 2's.

        u cant loose on yarren, will always play 1's, can produce massive scores and carlton need to win every game from here to make finals so they will all be playing at 110 pecent

          Adam Kneale · 11/07/2012 at 08:05

          ok.thanks for your help

    Sam Winter · 11/07/2012 at 11:27

    Option A. Just dont trade out Franklin. Chris Yarrar is going to get to 500k at this form.

TheAnointedOne · 11/07/2012 at 07:55

Hello all,

My first serious year in SuperCoach and I'm playing great Fantasy Football in all 4 cash leagues that I'm in and the others that thought my team was just making up the numbers see me as a threat now… 1st in two leagues and 2/3rd in the others and I'm rapt. Beyond all expectations. Thank you Jock, et al, for all your help this year. My final strategy is listed below my team, any of your thoughts/opinions/advice would be great.

Deledio HShaw Goddard Scotland Suckling Dempsey Carrazzo ( S.Shaw/Spurr )

Pendlebury JSelwood Watson Mitchell Hayes Priddis (Gibson/Couch)

Mumford Kruezer Redden Stephenson

Sidebottom Dangerfield Chapman Franklin Martin Cloke Zorko (Smith / Hall)

Trades left 6 – cash left $229,200 + $145,200 + $130,500 = $504,900

1. Downgrade A.Hall ($239,200) to rookie ($94,000) = $145,200 cash

2. Downgrade O.Stephenson ($224,500) to rookie ($94,000) = $130,500 cash

3.Hayes $493,500 to Ablett $624,500 ($131,000 )

4. Zorko $460,400 to Pavlich $543,000 ($83,000) or Goodes $446,900 (-$13,100)

5. Dempsey $391,200 to Birchall $478,00 ($88,000) or leave Dempsey???

6. Kruezer $415,900 to Ryder $507,000 ($98,000) or (Cox $620,800-$205,000)

*** Going to keep the Budweiser ***



    Adam Kneale · 11/07/2012 at 08:04

    go kreuzer to cox. and then HOLD

    save your trades then for finals. your team is great dont do anymore pointless tampering

      TheAnointedOne · 11/07/2012 at 08:14

      Good idea about big cox, those were my ideal trades to do during finals time as well, just to use them all up, no point getting to a grand final and have plenty of $$$ and 4 trades.

      Good idea about keeping trades with all the players going down or MRP.


    Sam Winter · 11/07/2012 at 11:23

    Trades 1, 2 and 3 are good. Then trade Cloke to Goodes. Save the rest for injuries and finals.

    Mick · 11/07/2012 at 20:11

    1. Hall – Murdoch. Only an extra 10k or so, and at least has the chance to play.

    2. Look at spencer or derricks

    3. Looks good

    4. Zorko is playing out of his mind, i would get rid of D Martin before him. Martin – goodes this week for my money.

    5. Keep dempsey, use that money to upgrade kruezer to best you can afford.

Presty · 11/07/2012 at 07:57

one question



patty D

Sam · 11/07/2012 at 07:59

Who is better to keep Treloar or Coniglio

    TheAnointedOne · 11/07/2012 at 08:15

    Personally I had both and kept Treloar for longer. Coniglio had quite a few weeks out whilst Treloar has been a regular for some time.

    Sam Winter · 11/07/2012 at 11:28

    Treloar — he is more consistent.

Laffer · 11/07/2012 at 08:24

Looking to trade in defender and trying to work out whos best value for money… M. Johnson, S. Fisher, C. Enright, C. Newman??? Also wondering what Murdoch's job security is like with Stevie J coming back in and Bartel out? Thoughts?

    Sam Winter · 11/07/2012 at 11:25

    If your looking at best value for money then Michael Johnson who's bottomed out in price. If your looking for best scorer than Corey Enright.

Sam Winter · 11/07/2012 at 21:19

How long are you guys saying Buddy will be out for.
