Round 4 Supercoach Scouting Report

Published by Barron Von Crow on

Crave Designs - stunning water features

Barron Von Crow - inner sanctumHowdy everyone, Barron Von Crow here, dishing you up another helping of our Supercoach Scouting Report.

Well, the less said about Round 3 the better I think, it was a trying week for many Supercoachers out there, with injuries to players such as Jimmy Bartel, Ollie Wines, Jack Ziebell and Mitch Wallis, not to mention dud scores from guys like JPK, Dangerfield, Gray and a few others.

Those who did well would have looked at this week as the perfect opportunity to shoot up the overall rankings. People like myself, who had a dog day of a weekend found themselves tumbling down. But a new week of football brings renewed hope for us all, so let’s go see if Round 4 will be kinder to us than Round 3 was.

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

captainCaptain Pick(s): As highlighted above, Martin has probably been the best in-form Tiger since Round 1, though Trent Cotchin did score 144 Supercoach Points last week. Alex Rance has looked to be scoring well and in another defensive option, Tom McDonald may also be an interesting play. He had scores of 125 and 122 in Round 1 and 2, and looked very good in the wet against Adelaide. Could be a big risk, but that’s what the VC is for most times.

captainCaptain Pick(s): Another matchup that probably doesn’t offer a lot on paper and based on the form of a lot of the players this year. Judd has been good, but hasn’t knocked out a really big score yet and Gibbs and Murphy have been OK, but nothing near their best. Another game I’d likely skip from my list, although I’m sure there will be someone who puts up a really good score here.

captainCaptain Pick(s): Dane Swan looms as the obvious choice, he was a popular pick last week and he paid off handsomely for those who picked him. He was great against the Saints last week and probably won the game for Collingwood this time last year when the Pies played Essendon. Stick a VC on him and hope he goes to town on the Bombers. If you don’t own Swan, then Jobe Watson (147 Supercoach Points last week) or Scott Pendlebury could be good options also.

captainCaptain Pick(s): Both Adam Treloar and Dylan Shiel have put up some good scores early in the year, so you could do worse than hoping one of them gets off the chain against the Suns. GC have been struggling a bit under Eade, with Prestia about the only one who you’d probably look for to give you a really good score so far.

captainCaptain Pick(s): Travis Boak has an excellent record against the Hawks, putting up a Captain worthy score in the last 4 games he’s played against them. He’s been a bit slow off the mark this year, but this is the perfect game for him to put his season right. Gray doesn’t have the greatest record against the Hawks and he wasn’t all that great last week, so I’d likely skip him for this game. For the Hawks, Jordan Lewis had 41 possessions, but was let down by his disposal efficiency and lack of contested ball, but if he can keep racking up the possies, he’s bound to pay off eventually.

captainCaptain Pick(s): JPK has some great form against the Dockers in previous matches, but his form when playing Fremantle in Perth isn’t all that flash compared to his home ground play. Fyfe was OK last week, and his previous form against the Swans may cause some people to hesitate giving a VC to Fyfe. I’ll be backing him in, with Geelong playing on Sunday you’ll be able to use the Captains Loophole should he fire here. Luke Parker will also be hopefully putting up a decent score as he’s been down in form ever since his collision with Lance Franklin a few weeks ago.

captainCaptain Pick(s): Beams looked back to his best last week, but with a Tom Rockliff return potentially on the cards, it’ll be interesting to see how his return hits Beams Supercoach scores. The biggest potential here may be Josh J. Kennedy though. Jarrad Waite took advantage of the Lions backline to the tune of 7 goals and 177 Supercoach Points and we’ve already seen JJK destroy Carlton with a 10 goal haul, so maybe he might be looking at another bag of goals here?

captainCaptain Pick(s): Selwood looked to be back to his very best last week, he always seems to have a period of a couple of games where he doesn’t look like himself, so hopefully that’s over and he can continue to pump out the scores here. His previous record against North would indicate a score in the 140 range isn’t out of the realm of possibility. Goldstein proved it’s still possible for a ruckman to score big with a 154 against Brisbane in Round 2, so he could be another option to consider as well.

captainCaptain Pick(s): Bernie Vince removed Patrick Dangerfield from the game last week, and I imagine more than a few teams will try and emulate that effort going forward. But even with that, Rory Sloane is the one to look at here. He’s currently the #1 player in Supercoach and has put up a score below 134 this year. Bontempelli is an interesting choice too, he might be a tough matchup for someone like Jake Kelly or Matty Jaensch, and I could see him getting the better of them here if he’s 100% fit.

perfect 9Perfect 9 Pick: Rory Sloane

BARRON VON CROW’S CAPTAIN SELECTIONS:

It’ll probably be a popular combo this week, but I’ll be locking in Dane Swan as my VC pick and Rory Sloane as my Captain.

And that’s it from me this week. Hope your Round 4 see’s your Supercoach fortunes on the up!

nice

James

G'day Community,

Who is a better option, L Franklin, D Martin or D Smith?

Cheers

SideBySidebottom

I've got Martin, probably trading in Franklin for Bartel this week and considering Smith as an upgrade.

@TylerCArmstrong

buddy

Spifflicator

Martin Is currently the better scorer of the three, but you just get the feeling that Buddy is going to go berserk sometime in the next 3 to 4 weeks. I too am agonising over which of these two to bring in. Currently have Franklin in, but will probably change at least ten times between now and tomorrow.

Girdle

Buddy & Dusty are top 6 forwards for mine. Get them in first

stevie

Nice work as always Barron,
I'm going VC on ward (due for a big one) into Sloan as C

Hazza_08

Hey Community. I need your thoughts. Should I go Goodes > Nathan Van Berlo or Sinclair + 100k (or any other suggestions). He has to go this week and I could go Krakouer but I think it would b sensible to do that next week. Cheers Boyz

Jacob

Possibly Goodes to Cripps. He hasnt risen in price and id back him to avererage 75+ up untill the byes.

Anonymous

Thoughts on Moneychurch (WBD) …

SCaddict

You'd be reasonably happy if you started with him but probably not worth bringing in now that he's already made $35K.

Reckon Krakoeur and Tarrant present as much better cash generation candidates in the forward line at this point, although would wait for when these fellas are on the bubble next week if possible.

Tulendeena

You have Freo and Sydney where Brisbane and West Coast should be for the heads up

Swan into Sloane for me

SCaddict

Same here Tulendeena.

Jacob

Wouldnt be wasting the VC on Martin. Vince named on the ball along with Martin. Reckon we might see another score less than 60 from Dusty.

SCaddict

Perhaps but Vince could very easily go to Cotch too who was off the chain last weekend.

Deadly

Dusty will belt him and he'll scurry off to Cotchin

dognino

Swan into Fyfe for me, although I think Parker is going to have a big one

Roger

Great article Barron, tossing up between Heppel and Watson to be replace Wines, Mid premos I have are Sloane,Fyfe,Beams,Parker,Wines,J Selwood.

Girdle

Nothing wrong with Heppell, solid pick and could still overtake Jobe this year. Plus I don't see Jobe playing a full season, Heppell more durable

CJay

Nice work Barron.
Hope Swan can get enough of the pill to punch out another big score but Fyfe vc into Sloane C for mine.
Cant believe Rock Lobster is back already. Regretting hitting the trade button on him now.

sean

pull the trigger on wallis to krakouer this week or wait til next?

SCaddict

I'd certainly wait especially as you can use Wallis for loophole purposes given that the Doggies play last in the round this weekend.

Marco_Polo94

Beautiful as always BVC. I'm hoping rocky's selection doesn't harm beams. Considering he had an average round 2 game without rocky i believe it is just taking beams some time to settle in the lions lineup. Swan into sloane for me too, hard to resist that combo for this week.

The Ranger

I'm tipping Rocky will be a late out. Can't believe he can get back this quickly.
If he does there's every chance he'll bust those ribs again.

Phil

Beams just struggling a bit with the tag, don't think was watched as close last week. Having Rocky will either help or do nothing, but don't think will hinder

TOPHAWK1

The VC is going on Dane Swan this week.

He absolutely loves playing the bombers, he is fit, he is confident, and he loves the "big stage". Its all set up for him. Dont let me down Swannie!!

Trab Pukcip

That's all everyone has been saying this week but unfortunately Pies teams this year is rubbish and the dons have hit the ground running! Can't see him dominating with the lack of talent around him.

Charlesy

Selwood into Sloane is tempting.

Charlesy

The complication Baron is that Selwood will only be halfway through his game when Sloane begins his. So I’d have to watch closely and make a call. Might just take the easier option and go swanny into Selwood. Selwood has a great record v North. Thanks for your work mate. I look forward to your Thursday night stuff.

3. votes

what to do with Newness? Keep him or trade? and trade to who?

Charlesy

I’m holding him mate. Hoping he’ll develop into a D6 but I hear you. He needs to improve

rowdy

if i wanted to get rid of Anderson is it too late to jump on either Lang, Gregson or sinclair as i already have the main mid rookies

rowdy

cheers Barren who out of those 2 do you think has the better JS

Girdle

Get on Gregson, looked very classy last week. And the Cats are giving the kids more than two games in a row, it seems.

Phol

I'd just go down to Krakouer. Not ideal trading in someone after one game but should generate more cash than the others whilst giving you a DPP link

JJH

G'day all,

Looking at trading in a defender by swinging in to wines spot.

Out of Rance, Smith and Hodge who is the number 1?

Cheers.

Phil

Smith 100%.

the sprinkler

I have got to get rid of BARTEL, WINES, YARRAN and 400K in the bank.

Thinking Bartel and Wines coz they are injured and out for longer.

BARTEL > SWAN is done

The other options are
WINES > Franklin, Bonts, Watson, Hodge
YARRAN > Hodge, Shaw, McDonald

With only Goodes to cover on bench I am thinking of getting Hodge/Shaw before price rises and that way I have Cripps/Miller to cover Wines. Also Hanging onto Wines 1 more week allows another week for Pendles/JPK/Beams/Danger to drop in price.

SWAN for Bartell is a lock. Am leaning towards YARRAN for a def prem.

Whats the go???????????

TOPHAWK1

Hi sprinkler.

Loving Bartel to Swan.

If your midfield is weakish, go Wines to Watson. If your forward line is weakish go Wines to Franklin. Whichever is more urgent.

Use Yarran for the captain loophole. He will get a 3 week holiday and will be back refreshed with a huge motivation to win back respect.

Just my take mate.

Hope it helps.

Cheers

Phil

His midfield looks solid with Cripps as backup, Carlton have a good draw coming up so back the kid in. Fix up your backline and obviously get Swan.

Gordo

Yarran to Shaw mate

Clueless

Who is the better pick out of bontempeli and Taylor Adams? slightly concerned about the bigger teams shutting down the bont. Thanks

Eggs

I’ve got godly and mummy and TBC in fwds

Thinking trading out mummy, go Grundy or Blicavs ? Or Swing TBC in and get BONT ??

Belcore

I am somehow ranked 73rd overall, and I've had Ricky Henderson in my team each week… I know. And the only trade I've done is bring in the non-playing Bont last week… I know.

Thinking of the sideways trade Hendo -> Hunt. I figure Hunt has more potential in his new role at Richmond. Hendo was a very speculative POD which has turned out a bit poo. Pull the trigger?

Girdle

I hate telling you what to do, since you're like, waaaaaaaaaaaayyy ahead of me. If you get rid of Henderson then go straight to a premium if possible. Smith or Shaw if you haven't got one, season long keepers

dave

Unsure what to do??

Option 1:
Bartel to Gray
Goodes to Hooker or Birchell

Option 2:
Bartel to Bontempelli
Goodes to either gibson,hodge,b.smith

thoughts community?

Girdle

Option One with Birchall seems decent to me. Nothing wrong with Option Two and B.Smith either. Go with your gut

Derek

If you have Krakour in mids (or any other fwd swing) you could do trade Bartel to hodge then swing hodge to defence via Saad

jake

now youve got me thinking… but yeah if i gte gray i simply dont have the money to get hodge or b.smith

jake

very true he most likley will go down a bit but if not now im thinking once he gets on a roll again and its time to trade rookies and upgrade he'll be even more expensive! and is bont a risk with a possibly calf problem lingering?

throttlefinger

Tasty breakdown as always, Barron.

Going Pendles into Sloane Ranger. Endless has to be due for a 130+ score, right?

throttlefinger

Freakin' autocorrect. Meant "Pendles" that I'm glad you saw.

Unless autocorrect is trying to tell me something. Maybe Pendles string of sub 130 games will be, gulp, "endless." To that I say https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8MSbgMkMRM

eatemalive

Anyone thinking of bringing in A.Saad – St Kilda – Fwd @ $182,200 – BE minus 32 for Lamb ,Lambert or McGrath, – has VG JS ?

@cafosk

Do you have all 3 of those rookies? You must have built your house on an indian burial ground

SideBySidebottom

That's Saad.

Richo

Guys, i have sauce jacobs – do i trade him?

I have nic nat as my second

Winter

With Swan as VC, who would be the better choice for captain out of Fyfe or Lewis?

SideBySidebottom

Fyfe,

Mic

Wines to Mundy or Selwood?

Girdle

Selwood. Mundy has a couple big games each year but always ends up around 100-105. Selwood will be 115+ again

SideBySidebottom

I'd duck out of that one.

Riley

Mummy to Goldy?

Mummy cant perform with these stinking new ruck system 🙁

Pieman 74

Sounds good to me. I brought Goldy in last week and it was the best decision I made. Seems to be the only ruckman capable of consistently scoring 100 or close to it.

Pieman 74

Good Evening Community

Tossing around potential trade options. Malcevski causing me no end of headaches. Would love to keep him but with a break even of 192 don't know I can justify keeping him and losing another $50k. Which of the following trades would you recommend?
1) Malcevski – Smith/Birch (already have Burgoyne) or Rance.
2) Deledio – Swan , Hodge, Neale or anyone else
3) Goodes – Hunt or Talia

Sarah

Smith and Swan without hesitation.

Pieman 74

Thanks Sarah. That’s the way I was thinking too. Only concern is McGrath is out injured and whether I trade him or Lamb out for Young or Krak from Port and leave the Deledio trade for another week or use Lonie as a playing emergency instead.

Sarah

If you can get away without a playing emergency this week, trade McGrath for Krakouer next week. Those two boys won't change price this week whereas Swan and Smith should both go up. I wouldn't hesitate to do those trades this week. If everyone on field is playing then you don't need an emergency anyway.

TPC

Will the Bont end up as top 6 FWD?

With over 300K of coin and Bartel to replace thinking of options.

Bartel to Bont and Lamb to Dusty

or

Bartel to Sloane (and losing DPP link)

SideBySidebottom

It's extremely unlikely that a second year player will be in the top six of anything and yet not impossible.

Beady Eye

Likely to finish in the group just behind the top echelon of forwards (Gray, Bartel, Swan, Franklin, Goddard, Martin), in amongst a large group of others (Smith, Roughead, Harvey, Dalhaus, Rioli, Deledio, Bennell, etc) in my opinion.

He is about $70K cheaper than those other though, so if he can end up with a 95+ average he’ll be value.

Chris

The question for me is who we put on the field between Heeney, Vandenberg and CEY?

Chris

To clarify I need to leave one on the bench this week.

TRIGGER HAPPY

Do u have a non playing mid ie wines, Wallis?

4rm

Heeney and CEY,they have both scored consistently well, Vandy has scored well at times but seems to be a touch more inconsistent.

northernsoul74

I agree although the Freo midfield could really do a job on young Heeney.

Derma147

Anybody have any advice on what I should do with lids? I was thinking trading out him and luenburger and getting in goldy and maybe krakouer in the foward line

Phil

Captains loopholes are for the brave (well VC at least anyway). Griffen to Selwood for me

Phil

Griffen into Selwood I should say

Trab Pukcip

Im with you Phil, supercoach isn't won by playing safe, im slapping the VC on griffen too, with no taggers in the GC side and predicted mudbath GWS midfield could go large!

Matt

Am I crazy trading Simpson for Oxley..

Crowmagnon

If you mean Kade Simpson, then yes.

Matt

Trying to free up cash.. Got shaw Simpson newnes murphy saad Macintosh down back…
Want to upgrade Bellchambers to goldy…

Other option is downgrading Parker .. But I fricken love him..

Midfield is Fyfe pendles Lewis Parker jpk and rookies..

Forwards are dusty Gray swan Clark Salem hogan…

Ideas ??????

Redd

Yes Matt yes you are. Kade is bound ta hurt you if you let him go stick with ya premos at least for a bit longer. I to am frustrated with kade but ya gotta give him another chabce i reckon

Girdle

Find another way to free up cash. You obviously started with Kade aiming to be a keeper for the whole year. Same as the last four years (Higgo’s stat sheet), he’ll give you a 95 avg over 21-22 games. If you can’t free up cash a different way then let the Oxley train roll by

Girdle

Only in a DIRE emergency would I trade Newnes to Oxley……but I still see it all as wasted trades

Matt

Yeh it's not so much the Oxley factor. Want to upgrade tbc.. Have 200k in bank

Trab Pukcip

Short answer YES, long answer NO with a but!!

Redd

Cheers barron, ya goin in the moneyball again this weekend? Unlucky with the bonters selection last week i see it hurt jock n yourself substantialy. I finished 5th 30pts out of the money but will def have another crack this weekend. Back 2 SC unfortunately i have Jaden Mcgrath and Kane Lambert on my bench and am wondering if its word bringing in Ahmed Saad as cover hes already gone up 40k but has around 70k left to make feel i need at leasr 1 playing player on my forward bench and bring in Krak on the bubble next week. Any input would be much appreciated.

Redd

Im also currently ranked 857 overall and 24th in queensland burnt 3 trades and had no injuries out of last week. Just spud scores from JPK n Robbie Gray

Charlie Vague

Fyfe into Sloane couldnt ask for anything more

northernsoul74

Think Selwood has a great record against North.

Minion

What to do with mummy? Hold and forget about the $$ he’s losing, straight swap to Goldie, downgrade to someone like Grundy and take the $$?

David

Has anyone considered all the rain this week could cause havoc … I have Bartel and was going to bring in Buddy but he will slipping and sliding everywhere. I dont think I will make swan vice anymore either because he went huge when anzac day was dry and goldstien will be slipping around simmonds. Thinking of bringing in goddard, and a cheeky VC on someone different like Luke Parker. Any thoughts who is best in the wet??

Beady Eye

The Swans are playing Freo in Perth this round.

No sign of rain here, and none forecast for Saturday night.

Kels

is it time to off load Newnes?
and is it worth getting hodge

Beady Eye

Listen to the community pod – Jock answered these questions specifically.

Gareth

Would community members recommend that I jump off the Judd bag wagon before he potentially leaks cash?

NateCrows

Nice one Barron! Fantastic advice for captain choice each week.

John

Need help Community so many holes in my team!! I have two trades to make!!

With bloody Gray ruining lives and now pulling out last minute against the Hawks and not having any bench rookies playing in my forward line I need to create a swing.. So I am trading Wines for Swan in the mid then swinging K.Lambert into the mid for Swan fwd and putting Cripps into the starting line up in the mid and putting Lambert on the bench with Cockatoo as Emergency.

Who should I trade for Bartel in my Forward line??? I am thinking Dusty but I think he may get played on ball with Vince and score low… And then there is Franklin but he is playing the dockers so might have a quite game… Motlop/Bontempelli?? HELP!!!

Bobby

i have no bench cover should i get a guy that will play instead of having a guy that dosent if so who?
