AFL Fantasy The Uber Premium Poll

Published by Jock on

supercoach premium poll

It goes without saying that your premium selections are bloody critical.

We all know that the little master Gary Ablett will be in most starting teams… but there has been some pretty fiery debate about which of the other Uber Premiums (as we call them in the industry) will provide us the best value.

Over to our beloved Community… which TWO Uber Premiums will you think about in Supercoach and AFL Fantasy 2013?

Aside from Gary Ablett - which TWO Premiums will you consider?

I still think everyone is going early on cotchin, he’s only had one great year, but unlike beams who everyone has dropped, people just can’t wait to select cotchin. Give me Murphy and the spare 50k, what are you boys leaning towards?

Tim

I’ve got Cotchin and Murphy in my team also, they are both going to har massive seasons!

choppers

I'm a little concerned how his Captaincy responsibilities may affect his output, thats why I've gone Gaz,Pendles,JPK.

Anthony

See the thing you're not realising is he's already had a solid year averaging 100 getting the main tag, then he took it to the next level without a full pre season and averaged 116, still with the maintag, injury free now and entering his prime…lock, lock, lock, lock.

Max

I have Pendlebury Kennedy and Murphy along with ablett. im also thinking J.Selwood may have a blinder of a year so im still trying to fut him in!

Rob

It’s a tough one.

Pendles & Murph for me, with Watson not too far behind.

Cotchin is on the upward curve though with 101 & 115 average last two seasons. I consider an uber premium to have back to back seasons of 110+ average. Swanny always worries me with his mid season breaks. Danger could be the next Ablett.

Hobbsy

I think there is a question mark over the Collingwood boys all scoring well again this year with the return of Ball, will Watson's number drop with the inclusion of Goddard playing some middle time.
Murphy fit seems like a logical choice and who can argue with the form of Cotchin last year.
Tough call.

Blaza

I think if you had followed Collingwood in 2011 (when Ball was playing) you would have seen the number of times that Ball actually fed Pendlebury and to a lesser extent Swan, Pendlebury knows when Ball gets in the pack that he is a good chance of getting it out to him..

Alastair

i have Pendles, Watson & Selwood along with The little master. Cotch, Beams & Kennedy Unproven for me.

Samsy

Ablett, pendles and swan all locks for me top 3 every year and pendles moving into his prime years. Selwood defs someone to consider, proven performer and will be 25 this year

jimbotraralgon

so are we all sort of thinking that the Malthouse effect will help murphy then.

I have gone Cotchin over Murphy as Murphy has shown that he struggles with a tag. Cotchin doesn't.

@jock_reynolds

Very interesting results folks! Thanks for casting your votes. Gotta say I'm a bit surprised by just how keen many are on Cotchin.. no doubt he is an out and out bloody gun… but reckon he's not a better pick v Watson as much as the results suggest… could Cotchin be a good 'leave' in 2013?

jimbotraralgon

pretty apparent Jock……you really need to start with GAJ and Pendlebury or Swan.

If not you are behind the pack before you start.

Matt

Ablett and Pendles a lock for me. Really thought about Danger vs Cotch vs Watson. Still not sure which one I'm going to take.

L Dogg

Tompson will steal points from danger, really coach vs watson for mine. i'm gonna go coach as a richmond supporter but it's really up to you.

adam

I will be going Pendles & Watson for consistency.. Ablett is too expensive at his price and Murphy has had an interrupted preseason..
Cotchin will only get better whilst Swan & Dangerfield have the wow factor to pull out absolute blinders

Tim

My premiums are obviously Ablett, pendles,Cotchin and Murphy do any of you guys like it?

Greg

Snap… That's were I think the value is.

Adding Fyfe and Mundy to those four as well

Tim

I’ve got fyfe and mundy with them too hahaha

Greg

Dare I say it…. Great minds!

ColinSylvia

Starting with the same four. Started with cotchin the last two years and will stick with him. Ablett and Pendles are no-brainers and Murphy is the best value of the other guns

Boydo

I have loaded up on midfielders ablett, swan, pendles, selwood, cotchin, mundy, hannebery. Still have three best rookies couch viney omeara.

Fwd line has cox rocky goodes martin

Ruck Mumford and luey

Backs is where I got room for mids have only goddard and Gibbs with all the likely starting rookies. What do you think guys? Have thought of swapping hannebery to Hanley/hartlett for more balanced side but really think the swan is better value??

@Da_Mad_Irishman

I'll be going at least 4 of those – maybe 5

@MRB37

4 or 5? Wow, I made a team with 5 and I felt too thin everywhere else. Most of my teams have 3 with 2 mid priced guys in there as well. Will be interesting to see what your final selections are like.

jimbotraralgon

will be going with…….3 premiums, 2 high end mids that *will* break out this year and 5 rookies.

Boydo

Final team is
Goddard, Gibbs, Brown, Goodes, Pittard, Docherty, Terlich, Coliqhoun

Ablett, Swan, Pendles, Selwood, Cotchin, Mundy, Hannebery, Couch, O’Meara, Viney.

Mumford, Luey, Witts, Currie.

Cox, Rockliff, Goodes, Martin, Stringer, Staker, Lee, Kerridge

jimbotraralgon

cracks me up whenever someone says 'final team' 9 weeks out.

Boydo

My mistake Jim referring to MRB’s post regarding final selections of course all team are going to change during and after the Preseason games.

Jimmy

Get atley

dools

Gone for 5 At this early point fit in very nicley with Salery Cap went to Which Bank and offered me an extra 1.5 M if I pull it off ( Is that legal?) LOL

Tim

Hahahahahhaha good call

@MRB37

Going with Ablett, Pendlebury and Kennedy at this stage.

Love the Dangerman, but I won't be picking him initially. Nothing against him, just think Kennedy is slightly better value.

DemSydneyBoyzzz

I know this an ultra premium mid thread, but is goddard a MUST HAVE in the Backs???

@MRB37

Not for me, mate. People seem to be split 50/50 on him though.

jimbotraralgon

Hmm….fair question.

I've had him in an out a few times.

I figure if he stinks I can get any back I want to replace him.

…but if he has another 120 to 130 year and I haven't got him………boy I would be annoyed with myself.

so he is in but I have one hand on the button.

Supercoach jesus

I have ablett pendles watson cotchin

Max

Guys we need to remember that Ablett,pendlebury,swan,watson,danger and murph all have byes in the same week so picking more than 2 of these players is pretty stupid i think especially if you also hav Omeara and crouch in your team as well

@MRB37

Do people strategize their bye rounds? Last year I picked my team so I had like 16 guys out in one round, so I'd have a higher chance of doing well in the other 2. I figured it'd be better to tank 1 week and do well on the other 2.

Max

I like his/her thinking but either way i think you will end up scoring the same amount for the 3 rounds anyway…

Eagle

IF a coach still had those two in his team by round 13 I would suggest he has plenty of trades and cash potential to deal with it then.

@havers101

Pendlebury and Dangerfield…….Danger is my smoky for the Brownlow

Nick

How can you not have Joel Selwood in your poll when he averaged more than both Murphy and Cotchin?

Hobbsy

Well said Nick, talk about a consistant performer that always seems to slip under the radar.
I had the Jelwood last year and I could not be happier with his return

jimbotraralgon

selwood will drop away……(relative to his coin).

He will not be in the top 8 mids for the year.

dools

Stop blogging you two.. Jelwood is mine keep the secret okay

Tex

The Buddy conundrum, he scores über high when he plays, but the issue is that his price of 618k makes him the most expensive fwd in the game, despite the fact that he finished as the 19th best fwd in the game last year, and has only made the top ten fwds once. I think he is a massive risk as u end up with 600k racking up regular donuts, Last year he only played 4 of the final 10 games, and broke a lot of SC coaches hearts.

Mumford did it last year and we all stay away, but Buddy was arguably worse due to his timing at the back end of the year and no one utters a sound? As one other poster said "he's fools gold"

I may upgrade to him around rnd6 but after last year I'll stay i'll clear at the start and just watch everyone else squirm when he gets reported.

Lewis

Thoughts on Sam Mitchell?

dean

tossing up between murphy and cotchin at the moment dont know who to get

wighty

finished top 2% last year, won both my leagues, and no ablett or buddy all year. Has anyone noticed that all players in SC start this year at $5.35 average per point ?

wighty

So watson and Kennedy locks, and already $200k to spend elswehere

Harvey Ryan

ive got ablett cotchin swan and shuey

matt

thats really good but not sure about shue

Harvey

yer i just fixed it up and now its ablett swan cotchin and marc murph

Dan

Looking good but instead of swn maybe consider pendles because of swans mid season breaks and instead of marc go sammy mitchell because of his greate consistency.

Jarod

Ablett, Cotchin and Josh P Kennedy.

harrison

DEF:goddard, gibbs, hanley, heppell, harbrow, goodes. (stevenson, terlich)
MID; ablett, pendlebury, Dangerfield, Mundy, Lucas, Wines, Crouch, o'meara. ( mitchell, viney)
RUCK; Maric, leuenberger. ( currie, moller)
FORWARDS: cox, zorko, rockliff, Wright, Varcoe, macaffer. ( dwyer, rowe)

thoughts???

Dan

Not bad maybe consider replacing danger because he can be inconsistant and replacing maric with goldstein so u can upgrade mundy to someone a little better like cotchin but that being said mundy as had a greate round 1

Matt strebi

I have ablett, pendles, cotchin and mitchchose mitchell over watson, swan, jpk and selwood. Think he will have a breakaway year lock.

Matt

Thoughts on swallow and mitchell

subject, however, you sound like you know what you’re talking
about! Thanks
