HERE IT IS, COMMUNITY!

It’s the final countdown, the last chance, the end of days. Preseason is just about over, and we’re about to kick into the real deal, and your homeboys Lek Doggy Dog and Patchy McPatchface are here to guide you through the last week of Supercoach.

We have a proper scour of the rookies, we flip-flop AGAIN on Patrick Dangerfield and Lek drinks far too many beers than can be advisable, especially for any children who may be listening.

HOWEVER, we debut a new segment from FoxFooty and the AFL 180 boys, and hear from the one and only PETER HIGGINBOTHAM who returns to us to offer one final point of difference up forward.

Throw your questions, teams and leagues into the comments – this will be one of the last times we gather round as a community before the fecal matter hits the proverbial when teams drop!

Remember you can find every single thing we’ve done in the pre-season – whether that’s sorting selections by teams, by JLT games, by positions – anything – on the drop down menus on the site.

So strap yourselves in, crank up the volume and hold onto your butts, ROUND ONE IS HERE!

3 options

Why are coaches still talking about the PTA/GCS bye? It doesn't matter and have all that time to trade up before hand. Round 10… so what

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

Probably because Having Ryder means you will cop a donut for him because round 10 you need 22 on the field, so you'd need a playing Ruck in R3 and who is that?
The other 3 bye rounds you only get scored from the best 18 onfield.

Tyruddanaut

Think about it this way. You lose 100 during Round 10 but make it up when everyone else is copping donuts in the ruck R12-14

You can field best 18 in rd12-14. My ruck is KRUUZE. Round 12 is his bye, and I know my lowest score will be pretty high in that round. Ryder won’t make it to match every ruck in the league

David C

Not if you trade in Ryder after his bye. And those other rounds are best 18, R10 is best 22 … big difference.

Just as a fun activity. I'm keen to see who people believe the Top 10 (Top 5 for rucks) players in each position will be, given that these lists likely decide the players people chose. Except for potentially the midfield (given the amount of players that could finish 108 plus), I personally believe all keepers that we start with should be finishing top 10. Personally I see… Laird, Hibberd, Hurley, Howe, Yeo, Houli, McGovern, Simpson, Tuohy and (maybe) Savage Danger, Fyfe, Mitchell, Dusty, Kelly, Oliver, Crouch, Duncan, Neale, Merrett Gawn, Kreuzer, Ryder, Goldstein, Martin Heeney, Greene, Menegola, Franklin, Billings, Gray,… Read more »

I think its a fair call Re: The players you listed bar one.

Wallis can't stay on the park for a full season, that's enough for me to exclude him.

Pretty solid.
Touhy to llyod.
Duncan to Pendles (I think there are plenty of others ahead of him as well, even his captain).
Greene won't play 20 games, flog. Wingard out D.Smith in. If fit R.Lobb, but assuming he is not.

Hey David, your team looks solid man. I have to be honest and say I'm not sold on the Christensen/Rayner picks, there is a hefty amount of coin invested in those two and I feel as though that coin would be better distributed elsewhere. If you are super-keen to have them in your line up, I would recommend only picking one of them.

Good luck! ⛄️

Christensen's averages: 66, 80, 93, 91, 70 (injury interrupted)

Sicily will out perform his price but will have weeks where he goes missing, better than any of those other 400K (and under) forward fwds imo

Personally I think you should strengthen your defence, so if downgrading Ryder or Sicily allows you to upgrade a rookie to a premo in defence then I'd do it.

GoDoggies
Guest
GoDoggies

I have $300 the downgrading of one of ryder or Sicily would give me enough for like Riley Bonner, Byrne, Corey Ellis, Brayshaw (Melbourne) a player for around 200-300k is it worth it?
Say Ryder to Nank and then like Keeffe up to Bonner or Ellis
??
Lek your a Carlton man, what are your thoughts on Byrne is he worth it 230k odd defender worth it?
Or do I downgrade Ryder to Lycett and have a ton of cash to play with??

Bell higher potential but Christensen might have a bit more job security

Sam
Guest

Why do you say that? Both seem underpriced with good JS to me. I only have 20k in the bank so wouldn't be able to upgrade either and both would be better than downgrading to a rookie (wouldn't know what to do with the 150k then anyway)

DacZawson
Guest
DacZawson

If you're keen on both then by all means go ahead, but I can see them both playing a half-forward role once Zorko and Beams play together, so don't believe both can rotate as a relief midfielder. So while both may score slightly better than a rookie as pure half forwards, I don't see the 150k extra cash as being worth a few extra points.

Interested to see what other people think though.

Dean
Guest

DacZawson its a really toughy year in the forward line this season and whats more concerning is almost every year the "Premo" forwards under preform, it happens year after year and the same can be said in defence. That being said the vast majority of mid priced players fail every season irespective of their positions. However with the lack of rookie depth in our forward lines this season I dont see it being an issue having players such as Christensen & Bell if a person feels its right. I personally have Sicily and Christensen in my side, if history is… Read more »

One of the more pure guns and rookies team going around. I'm running 9 mid pricers, needless to say we only share 5 players over 250k. If all your rookies are named consider Scicily to Petracca. I've got both, but one is going to go to to tribunal at some point you'd think.

@Gingging – Decent side but you are making a huge mistake by having both Coffield & Finlayson in defence because both these players are MID/DEFENDERS. Swap Coffield with L Murphy in defence and then swap Brayshaw to Coffield and this will then allow you to swing Coffield & Finlayson from Midfield to Defence and vice versa and while doing this change you will pocket yourself an extra $95k I don't like the idea of having high priced rookies, any more then 2 high priced rookies is a waste and you have 4 in your side which is crazy as you… Read more »

I think Lycett was mainly mentioned as a option through the preseason as Nic Nat maybe missing early. Now some reports saying he might be ready r1, im not sure he is a great pick anymore. Ur backs and mids look solid. Forward line i believe u should rethink. Its a tough line to fill this year so dont make it tougher. Selecting 3 midpricers that u are hoping will all take the next step is wishful thinking. U will be needing to make a lot of corrective trades and potentially u will run out of trades come seasons end.

All 4 have better J S than your rubbish rookies led by Fritsch but are a risk I would not take a chance with ANY FORWARD ROOKIES two of Heeney/billings/ buddy and 4 midpricers I would even go further and have the flog Sicily linked to Brander as a 7th forward trusting only… Read more »

Really like the team if you are going for league win. If going for rank there’s too many round 14 bye players IMO. F1 to F3 and D1 to D3 on that bye plus Danger, Dusty and Fyfe. Dusty to Kelly would help that and a few other changes might be necessary across lines.

It is like a few years ago when we had no defence rookies and people were jumping out of windows, but Jock said to us, “don’t be afraid, they will come”.

And just as the season started, two tiny little specks of Hope came forth in the form of Oxley and McIntosh just as Jock had predicted.

Have faith community.

LEK what are your thoughts on SPS has DPP but awkward price of $371k.

Cheaper than Petracca and Devon.

Thoughts?

There is a reason Petracca and Smith cost more. It is based on their past performance but the likely improvements in both players and teams only adds to this. Carlton should improve but both Dees and Drug cheats should both be a season advanced

I've restructured my team again for a more healthy bye plan. Ditching Bonner for a rook, to allow me to go Parker up to Titchell: DEF: Laird, Savage, Ryan, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (Keefe, Finlayson) MID: Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs, Brayshaw, Banfield (Barry, Holman, Kelly) R: Gawn, Grundy/Ryder/Nank [undecided] (Lavender) F: Walters, McLean, Smith, Sicilty, Christensen, Fritsch (Giles-Langdon, Ryan) As I said it gives me a solid by spread. Other options I'm looking at is Titch down to Whitfield or Parker, freeing up cash to move Sicilly to DEF (for Ryan), and get a Billings/Greene. Although TBH I think… Read more »

ThiNk I will agree with you you're CRAZY . DANGER TICH DUSTY and fyfe are must haves as quick as possible KELLY OLIVER ZERRETT and M.CROUCH make up the rest BUT points scored between 8 and 12 i.e. crouch and bont/neale is minimal

To help you with selecting that on-field "0" for your loophole, below is the number of times each team plays in the end of the round (last 3 games of a normal round, last 2 games of a Bye round). More late games the "0" plays = better loophole options

North Melbourne 10
Collingwood 8
Hawthorn 8

Gday community. After some constructive or abusive feedback for my team below. Have at it xoxo

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Naughton, Mihocek)
MID: Dangerfield, Mitchell, Oliver, Fyfe, Cripps, Coniglio, Brayshaw, T. Kelly (Banfield, Barry, Holman)

FWD: Heeney, Walters, Smith, Sicily, Rayner, Fritsch (Keeffe, Ryan)

All rookies obviously dependent on who’s named.

DacZawson

Regardless of rookies named I don't think Rayner is anywhere near worth 200k. I'd downgrade Coniglio or another mid down to a rookie and then Rayner to a premo forward

Thanks Dac. I’m working on moving some things around to turn Rayner into Christensen.

Tyruddanaut

Love your team, but have some small issues with some players.

Bonner:
Too expensive for a cash cow, too cheap for a keeper, doesn’t score enough to be a combination

Oliver:
Young, inexperienced, but could explode and get 120, too uncertain as a keeper for me

Kreuzer:
Bloody good, but expensive. You have to back him in to average 110 plus

Sicily:
Flogometer: 99.99%

Ahern:
Bad JS bad scoring potential

BrownlowBoy

Hey Community, Would love some input into this team that i think i'm finally happy with; Welcome as much feedback as possible 11k left in the bank DEF: Laird, Hibbered, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Keeffe, Murphy) Gone pretty light in defense this year purely because I think it easily has the most available rookies for cash generation and on field scoring potential. Selected Keefe on the bench despite concerns over both job security and scoring potential but it allows be to have Sicily as my floating D3 and F4.

Other than your Ryder reasoning I reckon you've got a ripper side. As a demon supporter I'm wary on Fritsch because even if he plays early they have a recent history of giving them a taste then putting them away again, did it with Hannan last year and Oliver the year before, might play then disappear before you can cash in

Bench: jelly,Barry,Holman

I have gone big in the fwd line as there isn’t as much quality cash to be made yet IMO – second team :

Def: laird,hibberd, ryan, doedee,Murray,Finlayson

Bench: jelly,Barry,Holman

Hey Squad,
Between Coffield and Naughton, who would you take? I feel like naughton has way better job security, however i believe coff plays a more supercoach relevant game than naughton even though naughton out scored him the JLT.

What do you all think?
Not long now supercoaches!

therealdreamteam
Guest
therealdreamteam

Naughton.
Played against men (WAFL) tick
Better job security tick
Better JLT scores tick
I also argue that he may have the more SuperCoach relevant game, as intercept marks/possessions are worth gold.

Keenbutclueless
Guest
Keenbutclueless

My only concern on Naughton is that the coach said he has that spot because of the move of Easton Wood forward. So far Wood hasn’t fired up forward, and the coach only had to call time on that, or Naughton gets towelled up and he might move Wood back.
You can find a knock on most rookies, if you look hard enough, so maybe this a little churlish. But just made me wary of trusting him as a lock

At 6pm the community's guess was Sam Docherty which was wrong. Boy oh boy, what a pod that would have been. The 2nd clue is: As leaked earlier the 7pm clue was to reveal the position this player is classified. I can confirm that this player has been classed as a FWD by our friends at champion data. Wow!

What do we know so far? He is classified as a FWD, a spot has opened up in his side due to injury or retirement of teammate and he hasn't had a good pre season which has made his podness go through the roof!

Guest
TOPHAWK1

I have been lucky with Parker. Did not have him last year, but had him the year before where he was very good. The 2018 JLT games suggest he could be back to full fitness and back to his best. At $537K he is a nice POD over Cripps.

Defying_Madness
Guest
Defying_Madness

At the moment I have selected the top 6 midfielders by average from last year apart from Ablett who I have replaced with Fyfe.

Last year I had Hanners and JPK in the midfield and I think the year before I had 2 sydney mids as well. I could have pushed deeper into the top 1000 without them.

Hawk, I’m holding Danger, expecting him to miss Round 1 only and will run with Titch or Fyfe as C. It means a rook comes in off the bench (Kelly, Banfield Barry), so points conceded. Don’t want the hassle of trading him back in if he goes bang and pulls out a couple of 150’s straight up. I like the Parker starting pick and hope it works for you though.

I have an idea to use Dusty as my coin flip , my Harvey Dent (Two Face). I would love to see what happens with Danger in one game before putting him in my team anyway. I predict Danger will score 100 110 in the first, and would like to see how he shapes up with slight niggle and Gablett. Danger is extremely expensive. -So I will vice Dusty. – If Dusty scores 100 to 120 I go Danger on Sunday as captain. If he doesn't play I still have Dusty's score, save a trade with chance of 110+ if… Read more »

Agree on the podcast – it did occur to me while listening that Lek and Patch are now starting build their own brand into this and the graph has been going up steeply.

I'm not starting Danger or Dusty. I have a view that all players are overpriced at the start of the year and it won't take much for those uber-premos to drop in value and be open for the snapping up.

belly button fluff
Guest
belly button fluff

Yeah but as Wow is implying, its more trades used too. I think the biggest fall comes from Danger. The others are worth losing a little money on. If Danger falls it is the biggest hit of any player. He is very overpriced. Yet for some reason I'm still trying to get him in even as a bench for round one. Oh crikey I'm going mad.

Cheers mate! I love a good hypothetical but every time I try to plan early trades it falls apart and something goes wrong. I just don't trust the Supercoach gods to let me execute a plan like that. So much can go wrong but if you're confident, go for it.

If he misses two you're laughing.

JohnDJ59

I'm going with Titch and Fyfe as my C&VC,for the first five rounds,then plan to get Danger in round six.If there wasn't any doubt about Dangers fitness I wouldn't even be thinking about it,he's usually first picked for the mids,but with Ablett there and now the hammy,I want to wait and see how it goes.Yes I know it will probably bite me on the bum,but that's what I'm doing.

Russty_
Guest

Hey Hawk, I wouldn't bother mate, just keep him I say, it's only one game, even if he misses, you can make up the points during the season if you have a solid team, why burn a trade if you don't have to, Leagues don't start until round 3 anyway..and most of us should play for Leagues first and rank second, winning the 50 grand is like hoping to win Lotto. The overwhelming issue most teams had last year was a lack of trades at the end. If he misses round 1, he'll be back round 2 for sure, it… Read more »

G'day community, could I please have some thoughts on my team:

$17.9k in the bank

Def: Laird, Hibberd, Rance, Mills, Naughton, O'Shea (Keefe, Mihocek)
Mid: Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Andrew Brayshaw, Banfield, Kelly (Garlett, Barry, Holman)
Ruck: Gawn, Naitanui (Balta)
Fwd: Heeney, Billings, Smith, Sicily, English, Fritsch (Giles-Langdon, Ryan)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, TIA

TOPHAWK1
Guest
TOPHAWK1

Nice side on paper, but your team is extremely cash generation weak. No Doedee?, no Murray?, Garlett unlikely to start, Dom Barry poor job security, and Timothy English onfield? He is is unlikely to play at all come round 1. The core team looks good, but you need to fix your rookies, and fast IMO. Good luck mate!

Is it worth putting Allen Christiansen in my fwd line or should I stick to another rookie?

StevoRivo
Guest
StevoRivo

Depends on your set up James. He’s not a bad option at F5 but with so few rooks to start this season you should have a good set of forwards at F1-4. Wait for selections tomorrow/Thursday re rook options.

James
Guest
James

At the moment my fwd line is Heeney, Greene, Billings, Venables, Fritsch and Ryan

StevoRivo
Guest
StevoRivo

So Christensen at F4 is a risk as it means 2 rooks at F5 and 6. The options of Bell, McCartin (StK) are worth looking at for F4 and 5, then Ryan or Fritsch at F6?

James

This is the rest of my team, I’d really appreciate some more suggestions, cheers.

I have McCartin and a few others ahead of him at the present contending for F5

TOPHAWK1
Guest
TOPHAWK1

Yeah, I am also considering Mc Cartin at $234K. I know he is a bit mid pricey, but the kid is young and so much upside there now that Saint Nick has departed. His JLT form pretty good too. At the end of the day, we have to take a risk somewhere in the forward line this year. I have tossed up Tom Bell, Christensen, and even Rayner the rook. Right now, my gut says Mc Cartin.

Ryder or Naitanui?

You are too light on in your FWD line IMO. Giles Langdon on field? Not a snowballs chance in hell of that happening in my side. Venables and Garlett probably wont play round one either. Payne, Murphy and Pittonet are probably non starters also. Just my take buddy.

Hello community, it's 9pm Australian Daylight Time and that means time for another clue. So far we know he's a FWD. He hasn't had a good pre season and a spot has opened up in his team which he will surely grab with 2 hands. We also know he does NOT play for a Melbourne based team (doesn't rule out Geelong) As normal, I can only accept the first answer, good luck community.

Yep not sure if this one is a shark move. I think most people recognise less than 400k for a 1st ruck in a top team is a sweet deal. The only reason he has low ownership is an injury interrupted pre season. If he's named round 1, expect his ownership to soar. I for one have him in and have for the last month but will second guess myself if not named!

Hey guys,

I was thinking of going in with Defense 3,0,3, Midfield 4,1,3 and Forward 4,1,1. This way, less exposure up forward and more cash generation across other lines. Team looks like:

Def: Laird, Hibberd, J.Lloyd, Naughton, Murray, Finlayson (Doedee, Keeffe)

Mid: D.Martin, T.Mitchell, M.Crouch, Z.Merrett, Coniglio, A.Brayshaw (freo), Brodie, T.Kelly (Banfield, Barry, Holman)

Ruc: Gawn, Nankervis (D.Cameron)

Fwd: Greene, Billings, Walters, McLean, D.Smith, Fogarty (Fritsch, L.Ryan)

You guys think I'm losing too many points on other lines, or do you think this structure looks competitive?

should read 2 1 3 mids 4 1 3 fwds 2 3 1 If Coniglio is a midpricer then so are LLOYD WALTERS MCLEAN and SMITH Cameron is a waste I would go OLANGO and definitely Comiglio to DANGER .Forwards and Defence is tops and zerrett/crouch are good choices

I'm still trying to work out how the hell you only have 5k left with that team.I would like to know who your other mid is as well,whether he is a premo or a rookie.Apart from that there are only a few things I would change.Out of the team would go Shaw, Goldy and Dahlhaus. In to the team could come Mills,for Shaw,Brayshaw just needs to be your first picked rookie in the mids,Nank or Ryder for Goldy,Walters or McLean for Dahlhaus. Hope that helps,ps I also prefer Buddy over Heeney,but that's just me.

Steeeve
Guest
Steeeve

Other mid was Fyfe. I hate the rucks this year. Thinl Goldy can be back in top foem though. Even with nobody to hit to should average 100 I hope. Shaw is a risk but showed his old kick happy quarterback form in JLT. Mills won't get much mid time. Dahl I agree with you. I've gone him down to McLean. Still don't have enpugh to get Brayshaw in unless it's for Brodie. I dropped Coniglio and added Brayshaw, Coffield and Christenson but thought 'what am i doing?'. Cogs should average 105, good for m8 until a late luxury trade.… Read more »

sorry Gator I can only accept the 1st answer which was Rory Lobb. I can confirm that Rory Lobb is………………………………….officially the SHARKMOVE player of 2018 I can hear the steak knives getting sharpened as I write this. Yes I know he has been injured all pre season, yada yada yada, but a sharkmove will never be an obvious player because that would make the purpose of the SHARKMOVE redundant. Fun fact: he had one of the best hit out to advantage ratios in 2017. He has the best midfields at his feet. And perhaps more importantly, Dawson Simpson is rubbish.… Read more »

Martin, Mitchell, Kelly, Merrett, Coniglio, Ellis-Yolmen (or JOM?), Rayner, Kelly (Banfield, Barry, Holman)

Like it mate. Not sure on Lloyd's output when McVeigh is back, but the rest is excellent. Two questions:

Ellis-Yolman? Is he there to make cash or points? Not sure he'll do enough of either in that slot
How will you pick up Danger? Is there spare cash about?

Otherwise looking good despite my concerns on Caddy.

J.Bronson
Guest
J.Bronson

Cheers Patch. I'm confident with Lloyd when Mcveigh is in the team (Swans supporter haha). Ellis-Yolmen is a good player but job security probably isnt ideal with Adelaide having such great depth- cya.
Have fiddled around with other stuff, fully set apart from whether M7 is dow brayshaw or stephenson.
Bugger all cash left.

Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Bonner, Doedee, Murray (Finlayson, L Murphy)

I like this team a lot Gaz. Yep I'm not sold on Sicily yet, and if he sets the world on fire for a defender is it going to cost us much to upgrade or get him later ? not really, not much to miss out on there. I'm thinking you could take a risk position there……..what about McCartin? Jackson.T (ruck duties…..)? I like Luke Ryan personally but can understand he's probably as risky or more risky than Sicily, but opinion is opinion. And I don't rate Taberner or Christensen, has Taberner changed roles or teams? if not forget him.… Read more »

Sissy because DPP otherwise either. See who is named and where with Naughton or Coff leaning toward Coff lollie for JS.

I like Ryan personally but take your pick. Naughton should have solid JS due to doggies down Adams and possibly others I forget. Research those factors thoroughly.

I like it. Don't like Parker atm, but if you do nice POD. Also would prefer one rookie forward on field instead of two. Wait and see who's named I guess.

I jumped on Parker when I saw him last week. I know it was only JLT but it was the way he was running to every contest, he had a look in his eye that said he was ready for a massive year.

The swans will not start 0-6 again.

Yep parker looks set for a big one, and you're spot on I don't think they'll be starting like last year.

Your actually tempting me Smoky and Derek. Would free up some cash for me so I don't have to take the weitering/tab risk in my team. Going to watch a couple of replay swans matches. After last year with having treloar and hanneberry in my team. I'm reluctant to take on a premium POD. I want the top 8 mids this year only. 🙂

Defense is thiiiiiin. Which is ok if other lines are solid. But let's face it that forwardline is about as solid as an ikea product left outside for a couple of years. Christen-sun is a massive risk, and Stephenson I had to search for his crappy scores because I known I'd seen him but he disappeared off my radar so quick I forgot who he was. Averaging 50 over the JLT and almost 200K? Nah yeah just friggin Nah mate. I hope you can prove me wrong but I fear that team if it goes poorly will be way behind… Read more »

Hey Smoky Don't you think The doggies will chuck a rookie out for a mediocre game before SK would? I think SK would give the rookie an extra chance. I know there are a couple down for the dogs but they still have plenty don't they?

I'm really not sure on the best JS on those. Haven't researched as thoroughly this year as others to be honest.

Who gets dropped from Freo when the Hills come back. Is Banfield one?

I notice there are a number of leagues being started from within the community (of which I've joined a few). I suggest once these are all finalised, we collate them and have a weekly summary on how each are tracking.

we Might see if we can organise a champions league.

People who finish first in their league prior to finals go into JR Champions of Champions Final Series.

Just need someone with a spreadsheet.

Last position in team. Weitering or Taberner? Why? I know different lines but I can put Sissy in either. One of these two will be my risk. Although I am leaning to Weitering.

Sicily is a risk too. There is no way he counted as a premo yet there's nothing to back that up other than a few games late last year, and remember he did get a 29 SC with 89% TOG? During that patch of excellence. A small patch of form is one thing, a proven scorer is another.

yeah true. I guess I actually have 4 risks in my team but one of these two will be the risky risk risk. 😀

Brodie and caddy. Yep i said it. Had caddy in my team, feel like Richmond being successful will translate to more points for him, but have since looked at myself in the mirror and ditched him.
