I recommend you play this music whilst reading this post, I hope it inspires you like it did me.

It has been an odd preseason community.

Devoid of the three giants who paved the way before us, I’ve felt a weight of responsibilty press down on me.

Initially I thought it would cause me to halter…to crumble.

But today I stand here before you all, before the Supercoach gods themselves.

For I have taken that weight, I have lifted it, I have dropped it, then lifted it again and so on and so forth until I could finally squat the weight of the Supercoach community with ease.

I stood on the precipice of the Supercoach mountain and laughed into the sunrise, weight held high above my head, not a drop of sweat leaving my brow.

This is where it dawned on me, literally, I was not holding the weight alone. Patch, Barron, Kev, every contibutor from the preseason and most importantly all of you, stood there by my side.

I had not lifted the weight, I had barely touched it.

You were the ones who kept our community alive.

In the light of a new day, so close to the beginning of a new season, I offer you this…my side.

It isn’t much, but it is the only gift I have left to give.

DEFENDERS

This will be the first time I’ve ever spent money in defence and I kind of like it.

Michael Hurley is kind of a no-brainer for mine. At 12% ownership he’s enough of a PoD that I can enjoy selecting him but he’s still good enough that he’ll pump out tons for me every week.

He went 100+ on twelve occassions in 2017 plus a nice score of 122 in the Elimination Final. At $560K I do expect him to drop in price but I’m willing to take the hit there for his elevated points output potential. I probably wouldn’t have selected him but an injury in the preseason scared enough coaches off that I’m swooping in. Didn’t do anything amazing in his only JLT game which was great for ownership but the fact that he played was enough for me.

Rory Laird is just about as lockable as you can get. I reckon he’s overpriced (like Hurley) but I don’t think you can afford to miss him. We all know the story, he averaged over 100 in 2017 and had scores of 65, 129 and 106 in the Finals.

With scores of 102 and 90 in the preaseason (going at 1.1 ppm) he should have cemented himself into just about every single Supercoach side.

This third spot has been up for grabs all preaseason. I’ve had Michael Hibberd in there, James Sicily, Daniel Rich (stiff to miss out) but it’s Shane Savage who gets the nod.

He is a risk, there’s no doubt about it, but he is a calculated risk at a reasonably cheap price. Upon his return to the Saint Kilda side in 2017, Savage quickly became a key cog in the Saints ball movement. He averaged 96.7 points through to the end of the season. He also added scores of 145 and 113 to his tally in the JLT, bringing his average since Round 10, 2017, to 102.6 points per game. His ownership has jumped to 11% this week (up from around 7%) but he, like Hurley, is enough of a PoD for me.

As per most team reveals the rookies are fluid, though I’m particularly concerned by news that Nick Coffield will only make the Saints Round 1 side if some others don’t get up. At least he’s an easy enough upgrade to Bonner or downgrade pending rookie news.

The rest of the rookies speak for themselves with Naughton being the one I think isn’t in enough sides. He might not score heavily but I expect him to play enough games early in the season to warrant his selection.

MIDFIELDERS

Patrick Dangerfield is the best player in the competition, if he is named I select him. If he is a late out I switch him with the best Supercoach player of all time, Gary Ablett…Junior. If he isn’t named he’ll become Tom Mitchell.

Clayton Oliver, my oh my, what a man.

Sure, it’s hard to spend $600K on a player in their third year, a guy who hasn’t built the public trust we expect from uber-premiums but seeing is believing and what we saw in 2017 was remarkable.

Clayton Oliver has the capability to become one of the best Supercoach selections of all time. He has exceeded every record set before him and posted an average of 111.5 in just his second year…he’s only going to get better.

In 2017 Oliver ranked second for contested possessions and third for tackles. He had at least 24 disposals in every single game he played at an average of 30 per game, he can go BIG!

Supercoach wise, how do these numbers work for you?

  • Lowest score of the year, 80, only happened once
  • Four scores in the 90s
  • 17, yes 17, scores of 102+
  • Eleven scores of 110+
  • High scores of 139, 142 and 170

In my side despite news on a knee injury sustained in the JLT. Until I see that he’s not playing Round 1 for sure, he stays at M2. Bloody big PoD at 6.3% ownership.

#FyfeIsLife

Luke Parker is a very good selection in 2018. I said it on the podcast but I believe his average swings year by year and science* says that this is an upward trending season.

The man is in his prime and has played almost every game since the start of 2013, I expect Sydney to improve this year and with that comes a big one from Parker.

He can kick goals and rack up possessions, he’s also been to the mountain and averaged over 110 before so I’m sold.

H was in and outr of my side throughout the Summer but a 108 and 118 in the JLT just locked him away. At 7.1% ownership and a pricetag of just $546,000 I reckon he could be a buy of the year contender.

*science is me believing in patterns

Patrick Cripps. I don’t see any downside to selecting the great man even though he has a very high ownership percentage of %27.5.

Cripps has all the numbers behind him to suggest that he can average well over 110 in a full year.

I know that some Supercoaches are turned off by his inury history, but if you isolate all of his injuries you’ll find that the majority of them have been casued by someone else, they’re also all over his body as opposed to a degenerative and recurring injury in the vain of a Jaeger O’Meara.

I believe that in 2018 the best way to generate cash will be running three on-field rookies in defence and three on-field rookies in the midfield. I’m running to expensive rookies; Brayshaw who has the potential to make us over $200k and be a reliable on-field scorer and Brodie who has had a year in the AFL system to build his body and real life AFL games played, he should be a reliable source of points.

The other rookies are fairly straight forward although I’m not confident that Dom Barry will get named for Round 1…this is why we have some cash left over.

RUCKMEN

If anyone is going to break the Cox-curse it’s Matthew Kreuzer. He is Carlton’s third best midfielder but he also just so happens to hit the ball to other people sometimes.

He averaged 109.8 in 2017 and scored a 118 in Jlt 1, before an ankle injury saw him manage just 8 points in JLT 2. His ability to score is matched by very few ruckmen in this game of ours.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, he has played 55 of Carlton’s last 57 games. Don’t worry about the injury history people! Hell, even if he does get injured you can just trade him to LITERALLY ANY OTHER RUCKMAN.

Anyway, he bloody good pick at only 5.4% ownership.

Not much needs to be said about Max Gawn, he should be in every single team right now, 62.9% isn’t enough!

Good old Mitch King, at 0.4% ownership he is my biggest point of difference. I’ll just steal Barron’s reasoning for the selection

“Mitchell King is purely for ruck loophole purposes. He is more expensive than selecting a 102K rookie, but he’s an easy swap with Gawn and Melbourne have 8 Sunday/Monday games in the first 12 rounds of the year, which will maximize the amount I can use him as a loophole in the early part of the year”

Can always drop him to Olango the Orangutango if need be.

FORWARDS

My forward line is reasonably straight forward in the way it is structured.

I’ve got Supercoach wunderkind Sam Menegola holding down the fort at F1.

This kid has the makings of a star and I’m very confident that the return of god won’t impact his scoring in a negative fashion. Good players get better with good players around, bad players slack off. Menegola is a good player.

He has all the marking of a Supercoach beast and will find his way into quite a few sides come seasons end. At $550K I’m locking in a loss but when he comes out and pumps those tons I’ll be a very happy young Lek.

He averaged 99.3 in his first season (six games) and 100.4 in his second year (19 games), I don’t expect a massive jump on this output but I do expect him to maintain it.

His ownership sits at just 5.7% which is far less than before his JLT series. Good for me because he scored 86 points at 1.09 ppm.

Kane Lambert is a reasonably new addition to the side but the reasoning is pretty simple.

Richmond look like they want to run lamert on the ball a bit more in 2018 and he is naturally progressing as a player and a Supercoach option. He jumped his average from 64.9 in 2016 up to 86 in 2017 and based on the end to his year, that scoring will rise again.

Lambert averaged 103.9 points per game from Round 20 in 2017, this average drops slightly to 100.5 if we include his JLT series. I honestly believe that this is closer to his average in 2018 than 86.

Side note, he averages 100.9 with Jack Graham in the side. 4.5% ownership, you beauty!

Toby McLean only averaged 85.5 last year but he was a really good point of difference for those who brought him in when he returned from a month-long injury in Round 12.

Prior to his foot sprain, McLean was averaging 80 Supercoach points per game, upon his return he broke out with an average of 93.

In 2017 his disposals per game, clearances and contested possessions all jumped from previous years. McLean also has the (now rare) flexibility to be selected as a midfielder or a forward, he’s this year’s Macrae!

I’m expecting an average in excess of 93 point per game and at his price point I like the selection. I thought he’d be in more sides but 4.9% selection arouses me

Dev Smith is another one of those ‘just pick him guys’ so pick him I did.

Now I’m currently fielding two rookie forwards, which isn’t ideal but I do have $172K in the bank.

My plan is to use this cash to move some rookies around (pending team selections) upgrade Coffield to Bonner, or (more than likely this one) upgrade a $117K guy to Tom Bell. He’s a preseason trap for sure, but one that I’ll probably fall into, what can I say? I loved the guy at Carlton.

Honestly community, I’m feeling really good about this team. It’s not so crazy that it makes me double take but there are enough PoD’s that it still feels like my team.

Let me know what you think, know that I probably won’t take any advice on-board given how long I’ve worked on the team, and we can chat in the comments.

It’s going to be a fun season community, let’s get stuck in!

Dan

Goldy apparently had a big preseason, and heard Scott say he wants to play both Goldy and Pruess, but he reckons Goldy looks like having a return to his All Australian form and may keep Pruess out on form alone.
Martin sucks when Archie Smith plays, otherwise he dominates.
I'd add Nank to that list, only 23 yrs old, and the sole ruck at the Tigers.

David C

Big Oscar has probably gone past Archie now. And Oscar is good as a forward unlike archie. Martin should still score well if Oscar comes in.

Not a bad side there Lek. Defiantly have spent some money but players should be locks. 7 of your premos in the round 14 bye so will probably have to keep that in mind for upgrades. Only thing that swayed me off Parker. I’m not buying into the savage hype. A bloke that’s played so many seasons and is prone to being dropped is a risk to me. Switching danger out also seems like another risky move, he’ll miss 1 at most not worth the trade for me. Bell is a trap don’t do it Rucks are solid, same as… Read more »

SC_Sixty6

SC_Sixty6

Russssssssty! All over it! Sicily will outscore savage and by doing so you'll save 80k, Lek would then have 250k spare plus who he trades out to upgrade. I'd personally take out coffield and select Lobb when he's selected. Sole ruck duties coming up. Mark my words he will be in the serious sides.

Second option is a no brainer. Gray misses round 1.

BockChoy
Guest
BockChoy

I've gone with Lambert and Laird anyway… but Vlastuin is an interesting point as he's not been given much consideration.

At $430k, he's in the mid-priced madness bucket but his second half of 2017 (after coming back from injury) is worth looking at. 7 games at an average of 93, 3 times 100+ (112, 115 and 118) and the only stain coming from a 52 against the Hawks (where the ball didn't spend much time in defence).

BockChoy

Oh, and only 1% ownership.

Excuse me my dear community!!!! :

Luke Ryan, Will Brodie, Toby Greene,

Or

Savage, Garlett, Billings

I can take Billings in first option too if everyone thinks better pick overall?

So billing’s or Greene?

Savage and Garlett or Luke Ryan and Brodie???

Last locks please ya knowledgeable bastards!!

Sam_01
Guest
Sam_01

Really much of muchness mate, I’ve gone Greene bc I think the giants have an easy run to start facing a lot of the bottom teams from last year. Luke Ryan and savage both pods, savage looked in real good Knick in the jlt tho but Ryan’s efficiency was ace. Also Brodie over Garlett for sure.

SC_Sixty6
Guest
SC_Sixty6

One of the better more balanced teams I've seen. Good work Lek. The Parker up n down years is one I looked at and it indeed says he's due for a big one…..went 110 and 111 on his up years. He was in my team for a week, somehow he's edged out.

Yeh savage not sold on. If you go by Parker's up and down years then this is another down year for Savage, stay clear, been in the system long enough to know he no good.

With only 1 on the bench and limited DPP options, Ruck is a position you can't take too many chances with. Nic Nat is not completely fit and coming back from a long term injury… too risky.

If you're not picking Ryder because of his round 10 bye, you'd better not pick Nic Nat. Probably miss a game or two or three by then.

FWD: Billings, Walters, Smith, Sicily, Giles-langdon, Fritsch (Garlett, Ryan)

Any advice welcome but one particular question, Should i go one deeper in forward line by downgrading cogs to Brodie and upgrading a forward rookie to Tracca/Mclean?

Dan
Guest
Dan

Nice team! Personally Id dump Kruezer from say Nank. Then move Sicily to backs and get Petracca. But thats only cos Im worried about Kruezers price tag.

First off, gday everyone, I checked into the website a few times early in the year and with no sign of life proceeded to just do my own preseason, now I look and lo and behold it has arisen from the ashes!! Well done lek/patch and all involved! I've had email issues so if I've ignored any league invites it was not intentional! Like the team lek, a little pod heavy for me, selecting pods for the sake of podness can be a fatal error….but they are all justifiable… I'm dodging the savage/McLean hype but I'm seriously considering falling into… Read more »

Out of interest Sixty, at what point do you class a player as a POD?

Finnius
Guest
Finnius

I think less than 10%

Swans2012
Guest
Swans2012

Yeah I might have been hasty there, with the word pod being used eight hundred times in the article I think I got distracted, in hindsight not too pod heavy, and I can guarantee my team is never generic, I think I was just trying to say my personal rule of SuperCoach preseason is to not pick pods just to be different, often players are most selected for a reason.

I think traditionally less than 10% ownership was pod?

Sc_Wow
Guest
Sc_Wow

I think the PODs McLean, Lambert and Parker and Kruuuuse are all justifiable.
McLean and Lamber have increased in their scoring output year by year and both should get good midefeild minutes to see this increase. Parker is a gun and has been capable of going 111avg. He started slow last year when the swans were off and I think that reflected in his overall avg. And Kruuuuse will be #2 ruck, safest pod pick there is.

Swans2012
Guest
Swans2012

agree re all of the above, Parker is a jet (though I prefer Whitfield at the price), kreuze feels a little overpriced but it is what it is, personally I really don't like that little injury niggle last week but pretty sure he's the type of bloke who plays with worse every week. I wouldn't pay the overs for him though. McLean and lambert are in the same basket as smith Petracca caddy etc, midprice risks all with upside, I think you've just gotta pick a couple this year and hope they are the ones, for me that's not McLean… Read more »

Which option should score the most points for the first 10 rounds?

1. Coniglio (M6) + Lycett (R2) + Sicily (F5)
2. Kreuzer (R1) + O'Meara (M6) + 117K Rookie (F5)
3. Nankervis (R2) + Coniglio (M6) + 117K Rookie (F5)

3

Thats the golden question. Maybe 1 if Lycett delivers but I'd go 3 for the 2 possible keepers and a cash generating rookie.

What going to be the roll of Alex Pearce at Freo?

Browncow

Should be centre half back James or taking whichever key forward is taller (along with Hamling). Leaves Johnson as distributor if he is even needed with Wilson and Ryan in the side. Shame Pearce wasn't a bit cheaper in the Naughton price bracket.

Nice Lek. Same structure as mine.
Jumped off Menegola and onto Heeney a while back but he's tempting with that low ownership.

What’s with everyone’s obsession over fyfe? He had 2 amazing years and won a brownlow in one of them. Then he got injured. He had a preseason last year, played 21 games and averaged 108. Why is everyone under the impression that he’ll get back to his best? What prohibited him from getting back to his best last year? With a full pre season and 21 games. Whenever someone is asked to justify fyfe they simply say #fyfeislife, but is Fyfe life?

I've heard that about halfway thru last year was when he finally felt over his broken leg. Funnily enough this is when he started beasting it up. Look at his scores the back end of last season. It takes a while to overcome a broken leg, esp since he had a recurrence of the injury.

Phil
Guest
Phil

I don't think he is Derek, I think he raises some good points. The way I see it this. There was 15 points between The best midfielder and second best. 15! That's 30 if you captain them. You have to work out which midfielders are capable of closing that gap between Danger and the rest. For me it's Dusty or Fyfe. You are right about his injury history. So it's the age old question of risk vs reward. Pick Fyfe and you get a guy with massive upside to his starting price, but the injury risk. Pick, say a Merrett… Read more »

Good except that you don't have the best player in the game..and McClean should be forward really.

Dan
Guest
Dan

The thought with Mclean in mid was an eventual move to fwds but might be restricting myself by having 6 keeper fwds from r1. Was playing around with no Danger. If he's named its bonner mclean greene out and danger rioli and a rookie in. Then prob nank to martin also.

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

Martin's 31 mate, he probably won't get better from here.
I'd get rid of Greene for now Dan and stick McClean forward will save you 50 grand., get Garlett into the mid bench for a swing, then you can pick up another premo midfielder. Venables might start before Ryan.

I've got some help for ya!…Get Dangerfield in…doesn't matter if he doesn't play round 1, maybe you lose 40 to 50 points?…not worth a trade.

Northerner
Guest
Northerner

I’m concerned about Keefe and Fogarty job security. Personally I think Venables over Keefe for that reason. Even Liam Ryan who has good JS, but will drop a mix of OK and terrible scores. Or if you think Barry has JS at Port, which I’m a little concerned with, then switch Garlett forward.

Northerner

Northerner

Ryan. Weitering more likely to get lockdown roles. Ryan is their distributor and has elite disposal efficiency and loves kicking by foot. I think he’s a mini Docherty. He’s that style of scoring player. I think Dockers will improve this year as well, but ball will still spend plenty of time in defence.

JohnDJ59
Guest
JohnDJ59

Thought I was set,but can't help myself.Looking at two options,currently have,Buddy F1 & Coniglio M5,even though I think this looks better,I'm thinking of getting Bont in at M5 instead and trading out Buddy for McLean who will end up being my F3. What do you think is the best option.

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

Yeah not a bad option John, Bont will score better that Coniglio, and Buddy can start slowly, you can aim for trading McClean up to Buddy at some point.

JohnDJ59
Guest
JohnDJ59

I think it's a better option Russty,just that I've had Buddy at the start,the last two years and it doesn't look right without him,but can't get Bont without downgrading Buddy.

Corey Ellis a decent option if Coffield gets kicked to the kerb?..Not sure what his Job Security is like..or how he's rated in the Club. Was thinking the same about O'Connor too.

Def: laird, savage, bonnner, naughton, doedee, Murray (Murphy finlayson) Mid: danger, Mitchell, zerrett, Fyfe, coniglio, libba, brayshaw, Brodie (kelly holman & banfied) Ruck: Gawn & nank (olango) Fwd: Walters, lambert, McLean, smith, Sicily, fritsch (ryan ZGL) Am I better off giving coniglio & libba the flick and go one up n one down.. but I just think they might both go 95+ and make some coin especially libba he looks hungry again. Thoughts??

Guest

That forward line has the ability to burn you horribly and ruin your season, it could also pay off. Too many players in the 400-500K price bracket accross your team for my liking, as there not all going to jump up to the next level. With that in mind I'd give cognilio and libba the flick for a genuine premium and a rookie, whilst using what's left to upgrade one of your foward mid pricers. Just my opinion.

Lambert looks a good pod but not for f1, there in no way the likes of Greene buddy Heeney mena billings all miss out on top 10, you’ve gotta have one of those in.
You’re defence is similar to mine, I’ve left cash over to upgrade bonner after a few weeks, may have gone a
Little deep in mid and I don’t believe nank is that big of a lock.
Beams will most likely get injured through the season too, I see this side needing a lot of trades through the season

SC_Sixty6

Savage is a trap. Been in the game too long to be relevant now.

Your fwds make me feel ill. I hope your not counting them as keepers because they won't be. 2 max out of those 5.

I've counted 7 real premo keepers…..I even added bank in there to make your team look better. Need a rethink on who you truly believe will be top tier in their respective positions.

Amazing!!! The effect that me revealing the SHARKMOVE 2018 player to the community has had. My assistant did a search and tells me that from February 14th until my article 2 days ago Rory Lobb was mentioned 3 times. In the last 2 days he has been mentioned 32 times!!! People seem to have faith in my SHARKMOVE. Maybe I should have kept it more a secret by revealing it on a less popular website (maybe Paige's) because to high ownership makes the theory redundant. Good luck all. I was hoping number 66 could give my SHARKMOVE some nice criticism… Read more »

Solid team, not sure about 3 mid priced forwards though. They could go big or could all go crap and you have 3 players not generating cash or not on a premo level

P.Dow @ 194k looks like having very good JS, but like most I have Brayshaw & Brodie at a similar price ,can't have all 3

Note ; 5 club captains voted him to win the Rising Star

Moosehead

Yes, but surely Brayshaw and Brodie, both in lowly clubs will have decent JS.
I can only afford two of them as I want $100K kitty for adjustments after two games have been played.

Thoughts on Angus Brayshaw (melb) at D3

GreendaleFC
Guest

I think there will be an increase in his scoring, especially with Viney out of the team for the next 6-8 weeks. He's had a full preseason and hasn't had any head knocks for a while. The only issue is that I don't quite see him becoming a keeper. I'm expecting about an 85 average. He's currently my D4 but he is probably the most expendable player in my team.

Lambert or McLean?

I am happy with my team (for now!) with the exception of 1 spot. I keep swapping Coniglio and Parker. On one hand I think Cogs can potentially get me a similar output to what Parker will, and save me the best part of $100k in the process. On the other hand, I think there's more certainty with Parker being a top 15 mid by seasons end. HELP!

GreendaleFC
Guest
GreendaleFC

I completely agree with your reasoning. For me it depends what you do with the 100k. I'm swapping between Coniglio and Parker depending on whether Danger plays or not.

Just read that Nit Nat is a good chance of playing ‘the majority’ of the game. A bit of a turnoff. Think I go Nank and if Nit Nat explodes over the first two games I’ll think about trading for him but probably won’t!
Venables or Ryan. Don’t want both.

Maverick
Guest
Maverick

Venables looks physically ready for afl and is tipped tto play through the midfield a bit but does struggle to find the pill but that’ll come I hope. I like him over a small flashy fwd pocket. Venables for me

Menegola or Buddy or Greene? Luke Ryan or Savage?

Jonesy
Guest
Jonesy

In exact same situation with the forwards! I believe all will average similar but have there floors. Menegola going to get that midfield time now with Ablett danger Duncan n Selwood? Buddy will beat up on teams in there big wins but will drop to 450k always does so could wait & finally Greene….. 1 or 2 trips to the mrp? No doubting his a gun on the park but he’s gotta control his temper. If he can his the one imo. Sorry about the essay haha

Ryan or Savage?

Dusty and Weitering is what I'm running, Ryan is tempting but bye turns me off

Jonesy

Menegola worth his price? A lot of ppl saying Ablett will hurt his midfield time but I’m being gravitated to him.. or better value in buddy Greene billings or heeney for F1?

Luke Ryan good pick or not

Willymack1234
Guest

If i get rid of danger, this happens:

Danger -> Mitchell
Witherden -> Hurley
Ryder -> Kruezer

What do you think?

SC_Sixty6
Guest
SC_Sixty6

I think your crazy because you then need to use 2 trades to get him in asap

BlueBaggerJosh

Cop a rookie score for Danger this week or start God himself Gazza keep cash in bank and go from there?

TheGreatBozza
Guest

Need some last minute advice!

Kelly & Nank
or
Pendles & Kreuz

I'm a mad pies fan so picking Pendles feels right, plus I've already got Coniglio and Greene. Worth the pick? If Kreuz does get injured i can easily swap to the best performing ruck

Maverick
Guest
Maverick

Pendles isn’t for me . Bont & kreuz maybe? Selwood and kreuz?

Solid team there Lek. I find it funny how at the end of the last season we all said midpricers, never again. Now I'm seeing a lot with around 3-5.

Is anyone considering ZacSmith

only in 0.9% of teams.

had a breakout year in 2017 and averaged 91.3

Smith averaged 75.7 when Stanley played and 102 when Stanley didn't play.

Finished the season strong with 133, 119, 80(Stanley affected), 103, 103, 87, 118 , 71 from last 8 games, only 1 game Stanley played.

I believe that Stanley was injured same game as Dangerfield. how bad was it?

I have worked out that a green dot means the player is player tonight.
