SuperCoach RD7: The Heroes, The Villains, The Damned.

Published by Jock on

Heroes-Villians-Damned

Annus horribilis – Mark II.

Many of us experienced a severe case of déjà vu on the weekend as we were hit by the worse back-to-back weeks of SuperCoach in recent memory.

In what was a round of upsets in the AFL, there were plenty of coaches out there who would have been severely upset by their SC team’s poor score.

The majority of our premium selections just aren’t getting it done at the moment with the likes of Sloane, Grundy, Treloar, JPK, Sandilands, Parker, Higgins, Gray and Wines all failing miserably.

Of popular top end players many coaches have, only Franklin, Rockliff and Bontempelli delivered any real scores of substance.

Again it appears as though 2000 was par, with many, including myself, failing to even reach that mark this week.  

The Heroes

Jarrad Waite (190 SC) is an enigma in every sense of the word. However, for all his injury, form and suspension issues, I’ll give him this: when he’s on, boy is he on. Absolutely slaughtered Adelaide and was kicking snags from all parts of the field. Waite was sitting on a staggering 86 SC at quarter time and finished with 23 possessions, 8 marks, 6 tackles and 6.2.

You have got to love the stats of Lance Franklin (160 SC) on Sunday. He single-handedly demolished Brisbane with 16 kicks, 9 marks and no handballs to finish with 8.4. It was the sort of performance his owners had been waiting for. Team-mate Zak Jones (143 SC) entered the conversation as a possible top 8 defender, finishing with 27 touches and a goal. He is now averaging 96 SC after starting off the year at around 300K.

Tom Rockliff (148 SC) and Marcus Bontempelli (128 SC) were the only 2 popular premo midfielders to fire on the weekend. It was the old Rocky special (32 touches, 11 tackles and 2.1) as he dominated in a losing team and without Dayne Beams by his side, while the Bont (27 possessions, 9 tackles and 1.1) was instrumental in helping get the Dogs over the line.

It was thought the return of Nat Fyfe would have a negative impact on the output of Lachie Neale (147 SC), but in actual fact, the opposite has happened. Neale actually looks like he is stealing some of the Teen Wolf’s points!  The same goes with Zach Merrett (133 SC) – the return of the banned Bombers doesn’t appear to be hurting his scoring capacity at all. These two young guns with low % ownerships are currently outperforming most of their more popular midfield counterparts.

Elliott Yeo (125 SC) is shaping up as the real deal this season without another excellent performance. I can legit see him being a top 6 forward if he keeps this momentum up. Big men Patrick Ryder (139 SC) and Matt Kruezer (128 SC) are staking their claims to be the answers to many coaches’ current ruck issues.

By jeez, have Carlton found one in Sam Petrevski-Seton (131 SC). The kid can seriously play. Was touted as a potential number 1 selection and is showing why. Had 21 touches, kicked 2.1 and was one of the main reasons Carlton were able to upset Collingwood.

Big men Charlie Dixon (135 SC), Ben Reid (130 SC) and Scott Thompson (123 SC) enjoyed sound matches for their respective sides, while other midfielders to crack the magical 120-mark this week were Ben Cunnington (129 SC), Jack Viney (127 SC), Lachie Hunter (126 SC), Jack Steven (120 SC) and Aaron Hall (120 SC).

The Villains

All good things must come to an end. The likes of Rory Sloane (80 SC), Shane Mumford (67 SC) and Robbie Gray (30 SC) were all in blistering form coming into this round but that was abruptly halted. Grey was killed by Brad Shepherd, Sloane was one of many Crows down on form in their shock loss, while the big Mummy couldn’t capitalise on his match up with Billy Longer.  

Shaun Higgins (72 SC) could not fire despite his side’s massive win and neither could St Kilda trio Jack Steele (79 SC), Leigh Montagna (74 SC) and Nick Riewoldt (65 SC).

Adam Treloar (73 SC) is firming as one of the worst premo picks of the year if he keeps this sort of form up. The patience of many coaches, including myself, is running incredibly thin. The inclusion of Mason Cox is absolutely killing the output of Brodie Grundy (58 SC), while Jeremy Howe (60 SC) was another Pie to disappoint.

After a strong start to the season, Ollie Wines (70 SC) has come back to earth in recent weeks, while there is clearly something wrong with Swans pair Josh Kennedy (77 SC) and Luke Parker (83 SC). They both looked a shadow of their former selves and could not fire despite Sydney’s break through victory.

Melbourne’s Michael Hibberd (56 SC) looks to have run out of steam already. He looked the goods at quarter time, but faded as the game went on to finish with a disappointing score. Aaron Sandilands (77 SC) had a down match but his form has been solid so far this season and he should bounce back next week.

The Redeemers

North haven’t won many games this season, coinciding with the drop in form of Todd Goldstein (111 SC). But the statistics tell us that when they win, Goldy fires. Their huge upset victory over the Crows was no exception. Could this be a turning point for the Kangas’ season and in turn their star ruckman’s SC year?

Speaking of ruckman, Adelaide’s Sam Jacobs (118 SC) has certainly flown under the radar this season. He’s registered 4 tons in 7 games and is averaging 96. With Gawn going down and Grundy turning rubbish in the past few weeks, has the big Sauce suddenly emerged as a ruck saviour?

Patrick Dangerfield (110 SC) hasn’t been himself since he copped a Jarryd Roughead knee to the ribs in Round 4. Rumour has it he’s been playing with a protective guard over the area ever since. Geelong lost its second game in a row on Saturday night and it wasn’t quite the Danger of old yet, but the signs were good. Expect a massive game from him in the coming weeks.

Kudos to those who held Hawks captain Jarryd Roughead (115 SC). Four goals helped boost his total as he assisted his side to their second victory of the season. The same goes for Gold Coast’s David Swallow (96 SC), who was impressive in his side’s upset win over Geelong.

The Prodigies

Caleb Marchbank (108 SC) enjoyed an excellent match for Carlton and demonstrated we can hold him for a few more weeks yet, while fellow Blues defender Tom Williamson (48 SC) was a little quieter after a strong start in his first 3 games.

Ever since Josh Jenkins has come back into the side the output of Adelaide’s Andy Otten (69 SC) has dwindled. Still produced a respectable score, though, unlike many of his team-mates. Expensive options Tim Taranto (66 SC) and Will Hoskin-Elliott (65 SC) were so-so.

Kurt Mutimer (58 SC) looked an improved player for the Eagles in his second match and should hold his spot in the side next week, where he will be on the bubble. Keep an eye on Gold Coast’s Brad Scheer (45 SC) in his second match next week, as he didn’t look out of place and could be a nice midfield downgrade at 117K.

Richmond’s Ivan Soldo (62 SC) was solid on debut for the Tigers, but doubt remains as to whether he can hold his position in the side when Toby Nankervis returns. Team-mate Todd Elton (62 SC) produced the best game of his short career but it wasn’t enough to get Richmond over the line.

Ironically, two of the most popular rookie trade-ins this week – Ed Vickers-Williss (35 SC) and James Parsons (19 SC) – were horrible. Due to the selection carnage earlier in the week, most coaches would have them on their fields as well. The other common bubble boy traded in, Aaron Black (69 SC), fared much better.

Along with Black, Swans youngster Lewis Melican (67 SC) was the best-performed rookie on the bubble this week, while team-mates Will Hayward (55 SC) and Oliver Florent (33 SC) did not overly excite.

Lion Jake Barrett (60 SC) helped many coaches out with a solid performance as a replacement for Dayne Beams, while fellow Lions Huge McCluggage (65 SC) and Jarrod Berry (60 SC) are improving with every match.

Hawk Blake Hardwick (74 SC) has been a sound buy for his owners so far, but the same can’t be said for Demon Mitch Hannan (31 SC), who probably won’t keep his place in the side for much longer.

The Damned

The likes of Curtly Hampton (47 SC), Dan Butler (58 SC), Dan Houston (58 SC) and Sam Powell-Pepper (60 SC) have been good servants to our teams, but look to have almost reached their cash growth potential. It may well be a case of damned if you do and damned if you don’t when it comes to offloading these players. Murphy’s Law suggests the minute we trade them out they will pump out an 80 to ensure they have a little more money-making generation in them yet. But hold them and they could keep producing the same mediocre scores and go backwards.

 

How did you go this week, Community?

DavidSA

Jack Steele hardly a villain 1pt away from 80, avg of 90
I want to bring in Merrett and have been waiting for him to bottom out which is now. The guy is an absolute gun and looking at how many times he gets the ball with a good 75+ % DE he goes large

INPieman

Agree David. Steele is going better than plenty of other spud so called premos. He's looking like a last upgrade. If at all

neilDemons Delight

think you're right Pies Steele and Oliver both last Steele could even come in

FEARTHEBEARD

Anyone got the B/Es for Butler, Houston, SPP, Otten, Hampton???

DavidSA

Footywire

Daniel Z

TooSerious

Darcy

Butler – 56
Houston – 62
SPP – 10
Otten – 90
Hampton – 91

FEARTHEBEARD

Thank you very much Darcy!

The Average Coach

Butler: 56
Houston: 62
Spp: 10
Otten: 90
Hamp: 91

FEARTHEBEARD

Thanks a lot TAC

FEARTHEBEARD

Also b/es on Rocky & Adams & Bont?

LoganJosh7

I KEPT ROUGHHEAD!!!

but also traded in hibbard and parsons so worst round ever 🙁

DavidSA

Parsons hurt a lot of us
I think Hibberd by score would have hurt but paying 400k for a potential top 10 defender is fine. He got plenteous of ball but all them clangers!!

DavidSA

Plenty*

Kev

I think he had 4 possessions in the second half. Went missing

INPieman

Hibbo had 27 touches but his 5 clangers & 2 frees against killed his score. And I've noticed champion are merciless on you if you give away a free kick that leads to a goal. And Hibbo did that. I saw Tom Stewart lose 16 points from his score from doing that a few weeks ago

Tyruddanaut

I'm glad Beams got injured because otherwise I would've traded him

DavidSA

out of the 4 rookies going backwards in price
SPP, Butler I will be keeping, reckon they both have another big score in them.
Houston and Hampton I can't see anything but bleeding cash.

Craig

Hampton to mcniece and then otten to Shaw? Thoughts

LoganJosh7

hampton has defs go to go – time is ripe! oten is a hold for another week or so for me. got better trade options round the ground 🙂

FEARTHEBEARD

Adams & McNiece for me for the same 2!

INPieman

Not sure about McNeice. Just don't need another rookie to play his 3rd & disappear with the byes coming up. Seems to be a frequent problem. And Zac Williams is impacting Shaw. I'm not certain he's a must have

FCAbel

If theyplay him this week after resting him I feel this offers a degree of safety for a few weeks.

TheGerman

Would prefer Adams, if you don't have him. Or Jones from Sydney.

INPieman

Rocket said this morning he won't be taking any players with Asthma or respiratory problems to China. The pollution over there is horrendous. Wonder who those players are

Kev

Struggling to see the point of this China match. Preseason, sure. But what's the end goal here? Waste of time/money

INPieman

Agree Kev. It's just a promo for another sport for the Chinese to gamble on. It's as simple as that

Tyruddanaut

Agree. It's a waste of a bye too if they're playing harder than usual in the conditions and have no rest. It should count towards the premiership

Top Gun

Played in 31 degree heat with high humidity, a sandstorm predicted and smog as well. I'm with you especially with the teams going over there too.

Russty_

Interesting how the comments relating to Nutsack being a bigoted racist have been removed..yet his comment still remains, not judging anyone, but ..interesting 🙂

Moustachio

I noted this also Russty. I'm pretty disappointed in old Jock.

Rivo

Another steaming turd performance sub 2000. I am at a loss what to do. 21 trades and $308k cash, current team…

D: Doc, Laird, Shaw, Otten, Marchbank, Hampton (Stewart, EVW);
M: Danger, Pendles, Hanners, Fyfe, Treloar, JPK, M.Crouch, SPP (Barrett, Pickett, Fisher);
R: Martin, Sandi (Strnadica);
F: Dahl, Nank, Buddy, Houston, Butler, Balic (Parsons, Eddy).

Got some serious underperforming premo and plump rookies.

What is the priority here? Initial thinking…

1. Houston or Butler to Macrae or Yeo
2. Hampton or Otten to Adams
3. SPP to Rocky
4. SPP to Bont, rookie to Myers, other.
5. Otten & Houston to Simpson & Heeney…

HELP!!!!!

Choice

I like 5

Rabbits16

yeh agreed no 5

TheGerman

Just went to Yeo last week, decided that I'd trust my instinct and he's having a breakout year. Even if his impact is low after the byes and only gets 80 or so, he's my F5 or F6 in my calculations at the end of the season. I'd take 85+ from him at the back end as a last used defender.

Anything above that and he's a must to have, especially being DPP.

I do think Otten needs to go very soon. His BE is high for him in which I doubt he'll get to this week. Simpson is on a bit of a run, as well as Sydney's Zak Jones. Adams is placed around his starting price, so I think it depends what do you need. You already have Doc, so perhaps save a bit and pick up either Simpson or Jones for now and look at upgrading Marchbank to Adams in a few weeks when Marchbank's BE is unachievable.

TheGerman

Sorry last placed Forward for Yeo!

Rivo

Thanks TheGerman.
Yeo is a good get though Macrae looks safer. Are you advocating Option 5 over that though? Or just in Yeo only?

....K

…K

Lazza

I'd go option 2… Adams is a must have and Hampton and Otten both have 90+ BE …. of the two, Otten most likely to get closer to his BE. That leaves you only 1 Premo to get in both the guts and up back.

All the other Options presents a problem for R11 with the Doggies, Swans, Bris and Carlton all having a Bye – which would take out Dahl, Bont/Macrae/Rocky, JPK, Hanners, Martin, Doc, Simpson/Heeney, and Marchbank, Will rip the core out of your team.

Rivo

Thanks Lazza. Don't mind it, maybe Hampton to Adams, and save the extra trade.

Tyruddanaut

Neither Hampton or often will hit their break evens so fix that up

Rivo

Could it then be Hampton to Adams & Otten to Hibberd (Melb) or hold the Otten trade for later?

Nick

Heeney is a must I think and still cheap so number 5 is by far the best option.

Top Gun

Hampton and Ottens with a breakeven of 91 should be the first two to go. Adams is a great choice. SPP plenty of money to make yet with a BE of 11. Houston is almost at the bubble with a BE of 63.

Dean

This year's bye structure is a serious pain in the arse. Is it worth trading these players out for premo's now or wait.

I'm hoping to trade some of these players to Rookies to generate cash come the buy rounds.

Rivo

A left field thought and maybe a cardinal sin –
Sideways premo trade….

Treloar & Otten to Bont & Adams? Leaves $63k cash to deal with remaining rooks pre byes.

Tom

Why is PIttard's SC scores so much less then he's AF?

Harley

AF doesn't account for turnovers etc!

Pittard had 5 turnovers in the first quarter from memory. That's a lot of points lost.

Kev

Doesn't get involved in the contested stuff, Tom. Gaff is similar. CD don't give a stuff if you can find space

DefyingMadness

Beams and Houston to Yeo and Heeney? This would mean keeping Otten and Hampton for another week.

Russty_

I reckon Yeo and Heeney could really boost your team Madness.

NoLanguage

Really like it. Thinking the same thing for Beams and JOM

slats7

Hampton needs to go.

Wedge

What happened to t lynch from Adelaide? Was he injured or concussed?

Greg

Concussed

Cam_H

Concussed but reasonably likely to play this week despite the general policy of a week off. Reported by Mark Ricciuto to have had no side-effects as a consequence of the tackle.

slats7

Breakevens can be found here:

Thanks! Though they really need a search option.

Kev

If you're on a iPhone tap that box with an arrow in the phone menu. Scroll to "find on page"

Lucas

What defender do I bring in got 550k to spend

TheGerman

Really like the value of Zak Jones. On fire at the moment

LJB

If you haven't got one of shaw or Simpson grab them

Lazza

Would help if we knew your back-line first … plenty of options at that price …
Must have – Adams ($543k),
Others – ZakW ($503K), ZakJ ($462K), Simpson ($515K), Lloyd ($488K)

Dutchy

What about Roberton

redherringfc

If you don't have Adams, then Adams.

Next preference is Adams,

followed by Adams.

Adrian

Rookie question, when the byes happen, does the 0 impact on the players price?

TheGerman

If they aren't named, no. If they are named and are injured in the first minute with a score of zero, then yes.

LJB

Nope, it's as if they didn't play

Johnny

Murphy and Kelly > Neale and Sloane 🙂

INPieman

New to the game Johnny?

Dutchy

Surely he's stating he's picks are doing better

randomcliche

#comelately ROLF! N1 INPieman, best call this week, thus far.

Lachy

bad bad bad trades

TRIGGER HAPPY

Carl
I think know you should rename this article
"The usual suspects"
Crapo under performing Premos and even crappier turd dropping rookies with only a couple of exceptions.

Winter

Is Macrae overpriced at 551k?
Should I bring him in or wait for him to go back down in price…

TheGerman

Overpriced for mine. Do you have Yeo? Heeney? Dare I say Franklin?

Winter

Atm my fwds are Dahl, JJK & Buddy
Not sure if I trust Yeo or Heeney yet
Next fwd on my list is N. Roo

Lazza

Roo will slide for some time … his knee is rooted..

Derek

He was on 22sc at half time last week. Scored 97sc in second half.

redherringfc

Not really, he is very consistent, which means his price won't change much.
For me, he is a must, but when it suits me because there are no good value picks.

SF4

No, he is very much worth it. Lowest score of 90 odd.

Andi

Should I send Zaharkis to the chopping block? Playing draft but he has been under performing all season

Richoman

What on earth happened to the texan? 24pts! (And how is he not a villain?)

jez_m

He's your classic key forward unfortunately. Will pump out some massive scores but also throw in some shockers. They play Melbourne at home this week so he should bounce back.

Paul

Hi can only do 1 upgrade this week. Hampton to go i can bring in any of the following players
1: simmo
2: Docherty
3: rocky
4: bont
Thoughts please.

Rabbits16

Simpson good value but probab;y just lock in Bont and smile. im looking to pick bont up next week and add simpson in later for otten

Paul

Thanks rabbits

INPieman

All nice options. But Bont is the stand out

Paul

Thanks pieman

Lazza

2 or 4 … no brainer…

SirSamuel016

I've got Otten, Hampton, Butler, Petrevski-Seton and SPP all ripe for the chop this week. However, I think I might only get rid of Hampton this week. While it's not too good a trade, I'm considering going Treloar to Adams, then trading Hampton out, swining Adams into the backline and bringing in Pendles.

INPieman

Pendles wife is 38 weeks pregnant & about to burst. He's putting the birth ahead of footy (disgusting) & if she goes into labour on the weekend he's not playing. He said if she goes into labour during the game he will leave immediately. So can that idea. But I like the creativity of that idea

SirSamuel016

Ah, thanks for the info. I'll have to dwell on whether I should trade Treloar some more, as while I know I should really hold my premiums he's not turning his form around.

JohndJames

I like your idea of getting rid of Treloar,SirSamuel,Adams is a must,brought him in after the second round.You could always do a strait swap of Treloar to Adams,then once you know what mid you want to bring in,move Adams to Def for Hampton.Treloar will be getting traded out of ''Black Flag'',round seven was his last chance,thinking of bringing in Yeo like the mid/fwd so later on I can move him into the fwds at the first opportunity.

SirSamuel016

Yeah, Adams seems really solid and would be great to have in my team. Currently looking at Treloar and Hampton for Adams and Bont/Rocky

JohndJames

That's a solid plan,I brought in Bont same time as Adams,been my best two trades so far.

Cogla13

If you are going to sideways trade a premium then do it during the bye rounds. Trade Treloar before round 13 bye.

OldOcker

Very good point INP. I had planned to bring in Pendles and Shaw this week for Hampton and Otten.
I must rethink my plans now, Not sure that Shaw is a must have so to speak this year but is at least showing consistency,
Pendles is a cheap ATM but could get even cheaper if he walks out half way through a game.
Back to drawing board and research.

Westy

SPS should be a hold.

SirSamuel016

Yeah, I checked his B/E and it's -14 so I'm defs holding him as he can make some more cash. Same with SPP who's got a BE of 11 and should make that. It's Butler, Hampton and Otten that are the bigger concerns.

INPieman

Braydon Pruess on the weekend had 64 Hit outs 16 disposals & 7 marks. FFS Brad Scott get him back in!!! He Bloody Gun

Captain Risky

Agreed, in time for Witts bye would be perfect.

Newman also had another 30 disposal game.. Both will probably be ignored again.

INPieman

I really need cover for Witts in round 9 as well risky! Newman is gone. He won't be back anytime soon. Would need heaps of injuries

Brian

Can we really afford to trade out a rookie who will definitely make money whenever he plays? I don't think we can. If there were good rookies on the bubble then maybe. But there is not.

randomcliche

Already traded Eddy and before their most recent games, Newman and Barrett. You win some and lose some. If a likely rookie comes along, I hit non-playing ones on the head.

Captain Risky

I will need to trade Pruess out by round 9 if he doesn't play.. time is running out !!
I have Cameron on Fwd bench doing nothing, so Preuss out, Cameron onto bench with DPP and that will allow me to swing Nank Fwd.

Agree reluctantly about Newman. It's either him and Hampton or Treloar & Hampton out this week for me, depending on team selections…

Harry H

Absolutely the same. Would love to hold Witts over the byes considering his scoring has been consistently good. Need Preuss to play round 9 though. Newman is killing me. Played 1 short in def last week with him and Stewart out. I may need to hold onto Otten and Hampton (even though they'll probably leak money soon) rather than cop a donut.

Top Gun

Newman and Preuss coming in would be orgasmic!

neilDemons Delight

Can he be subbed to the dees Pruess would get us to finals

INPieman

I imagine if they had mid season trading Neil that Preuss would be worth a fortune. He is a beast

Top Gun

The only way Preuss will get a game is when people dump him. Hurry up peeps.

Andrew

Not sure what to do this week and looks like planning won't really be able to happen until team selection on Thursday, particularly with what happens to my defenders.

Hampton's B/E has thrown a spanner into the works as I've also been unable to punt JOM due to issues elsewhere, combined with having Beams I need to make some changes.

Ideally I want to get Rocky in this week, thinking of committing the cardinal sin and going JOM to Myers pre-bubble to free up $185k and then going Beams to Rocky, leaving me with $88k for future upgrades. Can't do much with Hampton other than perhaps going him to Berry and treating it as an expensive rookie, which frees up the cash to get Rocky from Beams again, but leaves me with a JOM issue again…

Cam_H

You're not alone Andrew.
For what it's worth I'm very likely to go JOM to Jack Steven because I'm struggling to have belief in too many other fallen premo's that I don't have other than Hannebery … I seem to have about six other 'fallen premo's already'.
I'd rather take a $10,000 hit this week with Hampton (who I actually think is still capable of going bigger) than another week with Jägerbomb.

HallyMate

Rance or Tuohy? Desperately short of round 12 bye players

DavidSA

Rance only needs to run the banner for a cool 75
One touch and a intercept Mark sees him ton up ^^

Babo

I think he gets a lazy 50SC for doing his hair.

finnigin

been waiting for rance to run into form, bit of a blockhead but he is now ready and primed

Derek

Rance still in my best 8

Top Gun

Think Rance is worth a look if he gets plenty of disposals. However I think with so many other tasty possibilities I will pass on him this year despite how cheap he is.

whatyousmokin

He only needs 15-20 touches for a ton sometimes.

Joe.

I think it has to be Rance.

Round 1 he had 9 disposals and scored 99 points.

liam

who do i downgrade hampton too??

INPieman

Only options really are Berry or McNeice if he plays. If you can upgrade him it's a better option

Andrew

270k in the bank
Otten to Lloyd or
Spp to Cripps
Backline is struggling atm so am thinking the Otten trade

SF4

Otten to Lloyd.
SPP still has a low breakeven so we can wait a week or two until we offload him.

TBone

Already have Laird, Shaw and Rance, need to upgrade Hampton this week. Can go any defender other than Doc and Adams. Who is most likely to be a top 6 defender that I can pick up?

Paul

Simmo

Stanks21

Roberton is a solid pick

Harry H

Hurley well worth consideration

Derek

Simmo

Bob

Buddy Franklin or Heeney for Petracca?

Liam

Heeney – take the player who is going to get more ball consistently

LoganJosh7

heeney more consitant but buddy has the big scores. tough one.

i guess whoever you think will be a top 6 forward by the end of the year?

Ben

Hampton and Otten out! Looking at bringing in Pendlebury, Bont or Yeo? Can only afford to bring in one. All pretty good value at the moment

Holty

I assume u have a dpp in the mids to allow one of the trades. Who will u bring in with ur 2nd trade though? Not much to select from rookie wise back there.
I have same problem but dont have dpp in the mids so cant bring in a mid which sux

Ben

Last round I traded Beams to Simpson by moving Adams to mids. So this round I'll move Adams back and bring in a mid or even a forward (dpp).

Rookie selection I'm not sure yet, have to wait to see who's playing. Maybe McNiece in def or Mutimer in mids with dpp (I also have McGrath in mids who I can move back to def if needed).

Holty

U are set then. In this case, i think u would be silly not to trade in Pendles at his price.

FizzEm

hold off on pendles… his wife is about to pop if she does this week he has said he will not play… therefore u can get him the following week without his price rising . im gettin bont this week and pendles next

Holty

Cheers mate.

Top Gun

Bont a must have

Stanks21

Hi Community,

Had a horrible week with Nank/Greene out and Newman not playing. First game under 2000 for the year.

Team as It stands is:

Laird. Tuohy, Roberton
Shaw, Adams, Newman
(VW and Stewart)

Fyfe, Oliver, Kennedy, Dalhaus,
Zorko, Pendlebery, Powell Pepper, Taranto
(Fisher, Barrett, Hibberd)

Marting, Nankervis

Yeo, Franklin, Greene
Steele, Balic, Parsons
(Hayward, Eddy)

281,200 in bank
19 trades left

Thinking of trading down powell pepper or Taranto.
Then upgrading to someone like Dangerfield who is under 600 atm which is dirt cheap for him.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Rabbits16

Newman to Simpson or Hurley then look at culling players to free cash up to upgrade pow popper / taranto /balic down the rd?

INPieman

Danger has a BE of 168. So wait on him. You can leave SPP & TT for another week at least. You need to be careful with that 280k bank cause your bench rookies are not worth much. But who doesn't have that problem. You want to get a bona fide gun with that cash. If I was you I'd hold & go SPP to Danger next week. You should have enough for the transaction

Rabbits16

unbelievable how much danger has leaked… yeh pow pow to danger next week… super trade. heres hoping danger doesnt fire this week for you Stank.

Stanks21

What to do about newman though, don't see him playing since alir alir and McVeigh are back… although he did have 30 touches in the seconds on the weekend.

Rabbits16

me personally…. would go Newman to Simmo then next week go Taranto to Myers & upgrade SPP to Danger

INPieman

Yep. They are good options from Rabbits

Stanks21

Will the money work though ?? Would i be better with hurley..

INPieman

Actually it won't. You'll only get 200K max for trading TT. Perhaps Newman to Hibbered instead this week

Stanks21

Yeah I think I might do that, leaves me 124,000 for next week. I am a bit worried about hibberd though.. Is he really worth it?

Rabbits16

Hampton – Laird
&
Beams – T Adams (moving mcgrath into the mids to upgrade later)

Or

Beams – Bont
&
Hampton – Hurley

LoganJosh7

first option easy

JohndJames

Bringing Laird and Adams into your defence would be a coup for your backline.

jez_m

First option

Dice

Who to get this week between….
Danger $586 B/E 168 or
Docherty $580 B/E 88
(Some big Skilled Stadium games start not this round but next)

Rabbits16

awesome that you didnt start with Danger. you have to think he will fire at some point but i reckon Docherty this week

KSinny

Yeh I reckon we can wait another week, possibly two for danger so get docherty

Dice

thanks fellas

Moustachio

Get Danger, who is massively underpriced. Doc would be my last upgrade, if he remains at his current price which is only fair as opposed to actual value.

whatyasmokin

168 BE he can lose another 40K easily.

Jess

I dont have many options at all this week but Matera needs to go.
Otten to Williams then Matera to Heeney?
Or Houston to Black then Matera to Heeney?

INPieman

What a nasty trap Matera was. And a good lesson. If it's Otten to Zac Williams & Matera to Heeney then I like those trades

Hello

Who should I pick out of Jack Steven, Dusty or JPK? All at a simmilar price and should increase their average. Already have Treloar, Pendles, Danger, Selwood, Fyfe and Titch

Rabbits16

id go dusty

LoganJosh7

dusty

whatyasmokin

Priddis

Pitch 72

JPK

Top Gun

Neale! Good POD.

Declan

Butler and Houston out for Bont and Pendles. Thoughts. Is there anyone else better to bring in?

jez_m

Just saw an article on the HS that Pendles has said previously that he'll miss a game if his wife is due to give birth close to a game. Just something worth thinking about.

Tommo09

Going Otten/Newman and Hampton to Pendles and Montagna pending selections this week
Need the double upgrade
Only scored 1777 last week

SF4

Newman might find his way back into the side this week. 30 touches, 1 goal and 8 marks.

Tommo09

Might change one trade to make it Houston and Hampton/Newman to Heeney and Pendles
If Newman is named, then I will trade Hampton

DavidSA

ok here is my brain after the last 2 weeks in SuperCoach.
Hampton > Merrett swing Adams back into back line.
Houston > Watson swing Dahl back into fwd line.

Ones mans trash another ones treasure move

jez_m

Wouldn't be touching Watson. Won't be a top 10 midfielder (would be lucky to finish in the top 30 to be honest). Hampton to Merrett seems a much better option.

INPieman

Hampton to Merrett big tick. Watson no

Wattsieesq

I'd trade Hampton. BE is high and Merrett is better than Watson, SC wise.

Lazza

Watson? Why would you do that – average 79, and a 3 Rd average of 62 …. If you only have $400k … then bank it and wait a week to upgrade to a premo.. ..

whatyasmokin

Destroy all your hard work for the season by locking in Watson.

INPieman

Jarrod Waite cops a week. Hopefully Preuss gets a crack

Just Jeff

Well If he can't get a gig this week then we probably won't see him until Goldy misses games.

Neville

Hope so. I paid good coin for that goose. Should have stumped up the extra cash for Witts as he's been the superior cow to this point.

Goat

Scott can't say no now can he…..???

Ja191

he's an absolute gun, beyond me why he's not getting a game

Wombats

Pitiful. The bloke is the overall 5th point scorer has 5 scores of 118 or above and three of 130 or above in 7 games and he's still only 525k, but the spuds at jockreynolds deprive the loyal community of any knowledge of him. The real reason most site visitors are getting crap scores is that info providers here work on 'I reckons' and personal favourites.
It's time to offload the chatty spuds and get some people who know what they're talking about when it comes to supercoach. The coach of Kimmy D's A team would be a good start

Liam

To be fair Yeo does go up and down but looks better this year. Maybe, i'm gonna wait.

People just give advice you don't have to listen to them

Choppers

I think he's talking about Marc Murphy…..not Yeo. just sayin'

INPieman

Another angry Wombat

whatyasmokin

He's only gone up 116K from his original price get him in you little girl.

Tyruddanaut

I completely agree. When a bunch of people come together like this, little portions of people think for themselves and all teams ultimately are the same in structure and choices. Last week they talked me out of Black because of his potential JS even though he's a better player. Same with Franklin in the sense that, "it's a risk" if no one else is doing it

Cogla13

You got talked out of it, that's your problem …. be stronger.

Tyruddanaut

You're missing the point. Everyone will band together and not have any diversity in opinion which spreads

whatyasmokin

I've said it once I'll say it again, if the herd goes one way, you are almost better off going the other.

Everyone was convinced about Parsons, I questioned it and when I saw nobody could give me a reason I avoided him like the plague.

Look what happened………..19 SC lol.

Loop

Parsons looked good in his second game thats why people chose him. The jury is still out. It really doesnt pay to feel too cocky about your choices in this game, sometimes you're not clever – just lucky. eg I chose not to start Otten this year because I thought that Lever would take his spot but he did well because JJ got hurt and he moved forward = luck.

whatyasmokin

Well nobody said he looked good in his second game when I asked why Parsons. There was no clear 9ndication that he was a better pick than Black, I dunno maybe I missed something.

Lachy

Wombats… you sir have no clue about supercoach.

Danners

I remember a similar comment last season on Jarrad Waite last year when he was averaging 130 odd and look what happened from there…

Keenbutclueless

Just to confuse the issue, I think there are two Wombats here. One is sometimes jarring, sometimes constructive, sometimes vexing, sometimes entertaining. He goes under WombatsFC and is a strong Carlton fan. I think this is a different Wombats. Can't remember anything positive from him.

whatyasmokin

Pretty easy to know it wasn't Wombats FC…………

Danners

I wasn't saying it was Wombats last year

whatyasmokin

Just a question for a stupid wombat where is there a site for advice that doesn't work off I reckons?

People can only look at previous stats and go with their gut. There is no magic supercoach crystal ball where the answers are. Idiot.

kim

Where are you ranked this year wombats? I am ranked in the top 4,500 and until last week was inside the top 2,000 overall so i kinda know a thing or two about what is a good or bad trade mate. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, you don't have to take the advice, go with your gut is the best advice with trades and vc and c choices anyway.

I go with my gut overall, i never have to ask for advice on who to captain or trade its called research and previous experiences/mistakes from seasons gone bye.

Pretty low that you have to single anyone out but i can take it you keyboard warrior.

Great fact hunt

I think you are all being a bit tough. There is good info on here it is just using the right info and ignoring the bad info. There is a player in my league that uses this website the is in the 40s overall and has finished top200 and top 1000 the years before so I suggest he knows what he talking about. Personally my side is really crap this year as my ideas were crap in total guns and rookies. Good luck all.

Joshua

Hampton down to Mcniece if named and Otten up to Adams. Thoughts?

jez_m

Good plan. Hold off on that trade till teams are named on Thursday night though.

Joshua

Or Houston up to Yeo

Brett

Is Yeo the real deal ?

INPieman

If he stays in that role he is for sure. Watched him against Port. He was awesome

Mongoose

With the lack of forward options we have I would say yes.

Danners

The big million dollar question. I feel S.Mitchell has helped him out, I think the week he was out Yeo only scored 60 odd. If he was still a defender he would be worth a look. Not sure whether I would want to fit him into my forward line though

whatyasmokin

Even if he isn't, I feel like right now on a 34 BE and priced at 525K he is worth a shot considering how many weeks of good scoring he has shown us.

Choice

Has he been tagged yet?

DacZawson

Trading Otten to Lloyd and Houston to a premium midfielder under 560k.
Disregarding bye structure, who do people see as the better selection: Dusty, Merrett, anyone else?

whatyasmokin

Fyfe Merrett, Priddis, JPK or Hanners.

Goat

Can someone please define what "full premium" means in the history of supercoach? Is it a value or a ranking for the players on the field? Thanks in anticipation.

Spanner

Someone who will finish top 6-8 in their respective position.

Goat

Thanks for both answers – both give me a good guide.

Tyruddanaut

You might be referring to the end goal or the quality of a singular player. One of those has been answered so…

It's the point where you have all 22 on field players scoring like premiums should. 95+ for some 90+ for others but the top players will have 105+

Lazza

It is very simple – A Premium player is any player over $500K. The art is picking the right ones.

CoachDamo

Full premium means you've upgraded to the point where you no longer feel upgrades are necessary.

Goat

Thanks again all. I can see how that all fits together.

randomcliche

22 players who are robust who you can reasonably expect to score well 95+ (mids 105+). So yeah, will probably be over $500k or have fair expectation of doing so e.g. Bud. Some try to get 23 even 24 of these players to cover injuries or for loopholing, this will be more difficult that in years gone past given the cash generation being lower. I would love full premo +2, but cash and trades are short, so probably only get to full premo +1 by round 14/15.

Jono

Hampton to Shaw (over Lloyd) and Beams to Yeo. $81k change. Can't afford to have Beams on the pine until after the lions bye…can't see them bringing him back before then…thoughts?

whatyasmokin

Good trades, Beams should've gone last week.

Jono

Yeah agree…but with no rooks went the double downgrade…cheers

randomcliche

Jono, I did double down as well. Given you held, as did I, I would wait for the injury update later today. If it says 1 week, I will be holding and I think you should to. (I think I'm in the minority here with this view, but hey).

Spanner

Who's the best defender for me to bring in at the moment for Hampton.
Right now I have: Doc, Laird, Jones, Howe, Otten, Marchbank

whatyasmokin

Simpson, Rance, Loyd.

Captain Risky

Adams, Lloyd, Williams, Rance.

whatyasmokin

Yep Adams for sure as he doesn't have him, williams great too.

jez_m

Adams should be a priority.

Mongoose

Adams, Simmo and Lloyd

macca

Roberton

Steeeve

Be careful bringing in Pendles this week. Will miss if his wife is popping out a kid

jez_m

Agreed. Going Bont over Pendles this week for that reason.

randomcliche

Can't predict when that will happen, you've got probably up to 3/4 weeks of uncertainty. Almost all babies don't come on the due date, labour normally done and dusted inside 24 hours, so you've got 1/7th chance of it occurring on gameday each week. A not insignificant risk, but one which you should be able to cover with a bench rookie. If you think he's the best and want him in at any point over the next month, I say buy. I already hold and am not looping in mids until its born.

Boltons Blues

Does the community think the SandiWitts combo can be a season set and forgetter? Both averageing 93 which I'm thinking if they maintain the way they are going they will survive the season considering the massive stains we still have elsewhere

INPieman

Been thinking the same thing Brendan. No immediate need to get rid of them
