*clears throat*

Welcome to this week’s cheat sheet!

I’ve upgraded Jimmy Webster, from last week’s cheat sheet, from an orange to a green square after Dylan Roberton (get well soon, mate.) announced he would be out for at least 3 months, but probably the season.

I have also abolished the Friday Night Jinx after the curse seems to have lifted, so instead it’s just my tips for the round.

As always, my thanks to Fantasy Insider for keeping this website running! Legends, the lot of them. Now, without futher ado: here is the cheat sheet!

What are your moves this week, community?

Categories: Supercoach


Tyruddanaut · 10/05/2018 at 21:19

Love the Hurn pick! Trades this week are as followed:

Finlayson —> Hurn
Banfield —> Spargo

Enough room for a double up next week

    Daz · 10/05/2018 at 21:31

    I'm similar but Yeo instead of Hurn. Planning to paint the fence to full premo now.

    SCDamien · 10/05/2018 at 21:48

    I like it mate!

    Mattie · 11/05/2018 at 07:52

    Br wary Tyrudd. Damo strongly ‘suggested’ Witherden last week and he had a shocker.

      Tyruddanaut · 11/05/2018 at 12:47

      I had Hurn in mind in preseason, R4 and before he posted this. I think he’s alright

      SCDamien · 11/05/2018 at 13:03

      Yeah…can we not talk about that…? 😛

    blakeyboi · 11/05/2018 at 09:24

    do u have sicily?

      Tyruddanaut · 11/05/2018 at 12:47

      Yes. Brought him in 100k ago

StevoRivo · 10/05/2018 at 21:25

Nice work Damo.
Seriously considering NicNat & Langdon to Grundy & Spargo.
Think the defensive rooks still have cash to make.

    SCDamien · 10/05/2018 at 21:48

    I think the defense rookies might need to be kept longer than we need them to because not a lot of defenders are screaming "Pick me. Must-have" this year. Yeo, Savage, Laird, Sicily are probably the main four.

    As for your proposed trades, I think hold NicNat. His suspension is frustrating for a multitude of reasons, but I don't think trading him should be high on anyone's list at the moment. Take the 0, he'll be back next week.

      StevoRivo · 10/05/2018 at 22:01

      Yes, my issue here is that I’m only 6 players off full promo; going for rank. Options outside of nicnat include Crouch & Yeo.

      What The · 10/05/2018 at 22:22

      Simmo is worth a look for a defensive keeper Damien I can't believe that you'd rate savage above him.

      Jacob · 10/05/2018 at 23:21

      Hurley as well! Would rate simpson and hurley above everyone except laird!

        Jacob · 10/05/2018 at 23:20

        Sorry wasnt meant to post here!

      Tyruddanaut · 11/05/2018 at 07:26

      Yeo, Savage, Hurley, Laird, Hurn, Webster, Simpson, Sicily, Howe

      Sc_Wow · 11/05/2018 at 09:12

      Yeah not sure how savage is screaming pick me over simo and Hurley either

    Tyruddanaut · 11/05/2018 at 07:23

    Hold Nic Nat. It’s only one week and he needs a rest. He’ll be back to 100s next week

joey · 10/05/2018 at 21:26

does dom barry have to go? he's not getting games and when he does he can't score higher then 50. or do we just leave him there to warm the bench

    SCDamien · 10/05/2018 at 21:44

    Next week Port play in Shanghai and then have the bye, so if you can, I'd hold him until Port's round 10 bye, and then trade then.

    Some good debutants this week who will be on the bubble then if they can hold their place. Ed Phillips and Brayden Ainsworth.

      Russty_ · 10/05/2018 at 22:26

      Ed Philips is probably already the Saint's best player before he's even played a game 🙂

    What The · 10/05/2018 at 22:23

    Non players are great for loopholing

      joey · 10/05/2018 at 22:26

      & horrible for cash generation.

      DavidC · 11/05/2018 at 09:32

      You only want one though.

Micky P · 10/05/2018 at 21:26

Hogan or Mitch Robinson community?

    SCDamien · 10/05/2018 at 21:47

    Robinson was in last week's cheat sheet. I had him in a green square! Looks good Micky!

    fcabel · 10/05/2018 at 22:18

    I like Hogan. Both good

Rocksta · 10/05/2018 at 21:32

Nice job Damo.
It’s just with Tracca, he doesn’t look anywhere near breaking out and has a BE of 128. As such, if you are going to flick him, surely now is the time?
I’ve flicked him so am just looking for some reassurance I guess.

    JugHead · 10/05/2018 at 21:41

    I have the same view Rocksta. Took a punt with him at the start of the season and stuck with him for a long time. It didn't come off, and now he is hampered with the finger issue. Projected to lose more cash and doesn't look like knocking out 90+ scores anytime soon. Sure, he could turn it around. But I think it will take a while and there are a plenty of better things I can do with 400k that should immediately improve my team.

    SCDamien · 10/05/2018 at 21:46

    I don't own Petracca, but he played with that finger against Richmond, and then played against St Kilda with very little training in the lead up, I think he was released from Hospital on the Tuesday before the game, so that's mainly why he is Orange instead of Red, but I can see your reasoning.

      Derek · 10/05/2018 at 22:52

      No way he should have played last week.

      My worry is when Viney comes back Petracca gets no midfield time and spends the rest of the year running around the half forward flank

        SC_Kev7 · 11/05/2018 at 07:24

        Think Freako tweeted that he had 0 CBA’s last week. As always, I’ve got more pressing issues. 400k in the bank after double downgrades this week so he’s firmly in the firing line for an upgrade next week

    Sc_Wow · 11/05/2018 at 09:19

    Not sure why people are so shocked about Petraca.
    He cracked the ton 3 times last year and ended with a 78 avg. Classic example of picking a player based on hype. He will play half fwd flank because that’s his position, same as last year.

    redherringfc · 11/05/2018 at 11:21

    I’ve got faith in him going ok over the remainder of the season. I never expected him to be the best forward, but he started at 430k and put together 3 decent scores to start the season. He was a mid-priced risk and so far he hasn’t “broken out”.

    He should hit some form again and his price will bounce back.

Lekdog · 10/05/2018 at 21:33

I like Hurn, have been considering him but I feel like he always drops off as the season goes on. Might spend the extra cash on Yeo or Simmo

    SCDamien · 10/05/2018 at 21:52

    The obvious move, obviously. I'm trying to think outside the square though, Lek! That's what you figuratively pay me for.

      What The · 10/05/2018 at 22:25

      I think you figuratively paid to provide solid advice Damien, speculation for the sake of being different is supercoach suicide.

        dale · 10/05/2018 at 22:32

        correct me if i am wrong but last season didnt yeo look avg and struggle when thrown into the midfield and avg'd better behind the ball? has he improved that part of his game now?
        I don't watch much of WCE games

          Sc_Wow · 11/05/2018 at 08:59

          Doesn’t have Prid and Mitchell to contend with anymore

        SC_Kev7 · 11/05/2018 at 07:29

        Sure, he could just load up the same players in the cheat sheet and cycle through them every 3 weeks. But that generates no discussion.

        Hurn has experience in a team that lost quite a bit of leadership last year, and as Damo said, having career high numbers in areas of the game that suit his rebounding role is pretty handy for a guy in his 13th season

      Lekdog · 11/05/2018 at 08:31

      And this is why you understand the cheat sheet. You are a beautiful man Damo

    JugHead · 10/05/2018 at 21:59

    Hurn is having his best season for a while, no doubt. And for a 30yo is pretty durable.
    But I agree Yeo is worth the extra $$$ for anyone who doesnt have him. He has been named on the ball and Shuey won't be there for at least a couple of weeks.

Dale · 10/05/2018 at 22:05

Damo and community,
Thoughts on D.Beams?
7 rounds in found his match fitness and his groove.
low BE and looks good

    dale · 10/05/2018 at 22:12

    only 485k

      What The · 10/05/2018 at 22:27

      He's very fragile Dale but on the other hand when he's at his best he could go huge. I'm a bit worried that he couldn't knock out a decent score with dorko getting all of the attention as well.

        dale · 10/05/2018 at 22:29

        hmm zorko copping the attention helps. beams is very fragile but could easily go 115+ from here on. i like selwood crouch and kennedy but all have that dreaded bye!

    DANGER1VDUSTY2 · 10/05/2018 at 22:46

    D.Beams is a solid PASS, why take the risk (last season 19 games ave 101 + this season 6 games ave 87) when there are several other MIDS for not much more?

    Derek · 10/05/2018 at 22:55

    He had a good game last week but still didn’t score very well. Don’t think he has any big scores

      Dale · 10/05/2018 at 23:02

      unfortunatelt you may be right. It's the first year I've not started him in 5 years and im probably just hoping yas could talk me into getting him. have a huge soft spot for dayne. but common sense must prevail.

fcabel · 10/05/2018 at 22:19

Great work mate. Love the sheet

Russty_ · 10/05/2018 at 22:24

Nice one Damo…good work on the cheat sheet and congrats mate!, I have gone Bundy to Spargo and Petracca to Mclean this week, and hoping Nank plays, and doesn't become a late out to Solvol. 🙂

    DANGER1VDUSTY2 · 10/05/2018 at 22:41

    Spot on Toby McLean (56 BE) is a must have this week, forget a premo MID, people can do that next week with several good options. Anyone who does not trade in Spargo this week (or last week) will be left at the back of the pack.

Rough · 10/05/2018 at 22:26

Banfield and Holman out for Macrae and Spargo.
21 trades left, $103100 in bank if changes made.
Current team

Laird, Hurley, Simpson, Savage, Doedee, Finlayson – Richards, Duman

Fyfe, Macrae, Cripps, Mitchell, Martin, Merrett, Kelly, Spargo – Brayshaw, Barry, O'Connor (any idea if he is going to get more game time?)

Gawn, Martin – English

Heeney, McLean, Sicily, Waterman, Fritsch, Giles-Langdon – Walters (inj), Guefli (bought when on the susp, now two games in a row no play, will he be back?)

Any better ideas?

Richie Porte · 10/05/2018 at 22:30

Crouch and Spargo or
Spargo and Ronke
Is Ronke worth getting and then Crouch next week. Have 23 trades left and 277k

    Dale · 10/05/2018 at 22:37

    Crouch is on my radar but not a MUST this week and depends if he suits ya bye. a BE of 93 he will rise maybe 5-10k. spargo and ronke both have decent JS. i went early on spargo last week knowing he was the real deal, looks solid! If ya have two rookies ready to cull i think you can dbl downgrade

    RobDog · 10/05/2018 at 22:40

    For me Crouch and Spargo. Ronke won't hold his spot and more rookies coming through.

      Richie Porte · 11/05/2018 at 05:51

      Cheers guys, varying opinions. Both valid points. I’ll flip a coin maybe.

      Jacob · 12/05/2018 at 01:31


    Finnius · 11/05/2018 at 08:02

    Paint the fence to keep up in the rankings.

      Richie Porte · 11/05/2018 at 12:41

      Fence needs a touch up

        Richie Porte · 11/05/2018 at 20:33

        I painted the Ronke fence

          Jacob · 12/05/2018 at 01:31

          Well done ritchie!

ATeam12345 · 10/05/2018 at 22:39

1.5k short on going Holman to Spargo, Murray to Yeo!

Can go Finlay/Doedee to Yeo
or go Murray to Simpson/Hibberd/Sicily (although not keen, as mongrel) thus keeping Finlay & Doedee on field

    Jordan · 10/05/2018 at 23:34

    Definitely finlay to yeo.. finlay teacher his peak

      Dale · 10/05/2018 at 23:35


        Dave · 10/05/2018 at 23:59

        Agreed, Collingwood have Geelong this week but then a relatively easy run so Murray will still score well/make cash. Finlayson BE at 86 so think he's pretty much maxed out at this point I'm afraid. The DPP is the only positive about him tho…

          Trade · 11/05/2018 at 01:07

          What about trading Doedee instead then?

Josh · 10/05/2018 at 22:42

Which rookies am I best off giving the boot?
DEF: Finlayson, Doedee, Naughton, Richards
MID: Kelly, Holman, Bradshaw, Banfield, Barry
FWD: Higgins, ZGL, Guelfi, Keeffe

    Dale · 10/05/2018 at 22:46

    banfield 100%
    then maybe holman or finlayson. flip of the coin

    AFC1886 · 10/05/2018 at 22:47

    Holman, Banfield and Barry

John · 10/05/2018 at 22:48

who is the better option to bring in to cover nic nat ( trading english for this player)

mcinerney or crossley?

    AFC1886 · 10/05/2018 at 22:57

    Crossley looks the better of the two

      Russty_ · 10/05/2018 at 23:07


    DavidC · 11/05/2018 at 11:38

    McInerney is likely to get more games going forward in case you need more cover in the future. Crossley probably comes out after GC's bye for the return of Lynch. May back this week as well. No room for all of them plus 2 meter Peter is not far from a return.

      WithAllDueRespect · 11/05/2018 at 13:32

      Crossley is handy too if he remains in the side for our bye rounds too. I'm bringing him in.

AFC1886 · 10/05/2018 at 23:05

It may seem like a crazy idea but any love for Stef Martin as captain? Up against Tom Boyd he could go bananas, no other designated Ruckman in the doggies side

    Lazza · 11/05/2018 at 11:30

    who is your VC?

Jordan · 10/05/2018 at 23:11

Why AFL.. WHY!!!! Nic nat has ruined my plans I have no clue what to do now please help
I have 20 trades with 29.8k in the back… here’s my squad

DEF: laird, yeo, howe, Webster, doedee, Finlayson(mirra, Murphy)
MID: Fyfe, titch, dusty, pendles, merret, Parker, Kelly, Holman(banfield, Brayshaw,barry)
RUCK: Gawn, Nic nat(olango)
FWD: Heeney, Sicily, Toby Greene, Devon Smith, Taranto, English,(guelfi, Fritsch)

Originally I was going to go Finlayson to Spargo via Sicily then English to mclean but now I don’t think I can’t. I sort of want to win my league this week and my opponent doesn’t have Nic nat… so I’m thinking of going English to Spargo and Nic nat to either Grundy, Stef Martin or kreuzer(a nice value pick could work out).
Cheers in advance

    joey · 10/05/2018 at 23:19

    personally i'd hold nic nat. unless your in the top 1000 overrall and chasing #1.

      Jordan · 10/05/2018 at 23:30

      I’m 421 but still too far away to finish first

        Whatyasmokin · 11/05/2018 at 02:02

        You wouldn't be far behind if ranked 421, not impossible to win.

        THE SALTSHAKER · 11/05/2018 at 03:04

        up to grundy 💪

Russty_ · 10/05/2018 at 23:16

Yeah I reckon English or Greene to Spargo and Nicnat to Grundy, Martin or Sinclair, if you can't stand the donut.
Not sure why you had English in the fwd line with no ruck swing in the first place though?

    Simo · 11/05/2018 at 07:57

    English is out this week too

joey · 10/05/2018 at 23:17

brayden ainsworth and ed phillips look to be a couple of good cows in 2 weeks.

Dale · 10/05/2018 at 23:28

how is keefe's JS? I want ronke but leaning toward keefe for his DPP with sicily. not sold on ronke once reid & buddy return and T.McCartin named ….

    Whatyasmokin · 11/05/2018 at 02:00

    Ironically 51 his only score, is about what Id expect from him on average. He's not SC relevant. If JS is good then an ok pick but not sure about that either.

    Ronke hasnt really done much wrong, I am warming to him but will skip and just get spargo.

    THE SALTSHAKER · 11/05/2018 at 03:06

    is a hardnut, 7 tackles last week. Swans will play him, like most clubs are with last years rookie picks

Jacob · 10/05/2018 at 23:54

With news of mcgovern being out, should i trade him or just hold him and field duman? Has thrown a spanner in the works, dont know what to do!

Jambo · 10/05/2018 at 23:57

I brought Jimmy Webster in my team last week. He was my little sneaky POD. Why, Damo, did you have to spoil it?!?

    Sc_Wow · 11/05/2018 at 09:23

    He will still be a pod, he won’t keep it up and even if he does he has a horrible bye

Jambo · 11/05/2018 at 00:00

What is Jack Macrae’s record vs the Crows of late?

    AFC1886 · 11/05/2018 at 00:31

    118, 82, 128 in his last 3 v the crows

Crowboy94 · 11/05/2018 at 00:30

Why aren't more people considering Gaff? Has a good bye round and has only gone under 100 once this year so far.

    Sc_Wow · 11/05/2018 at 09:25

    He’s on the wing, I think once it starts getting wet and cold ball movement becomes scrappy and it’s difficult for those outside players to be consistent

      Wedge · 11/05/2018 at 10:49

      West Coast is only playing at the mcg once in winter and blundstone both at 1:10 in the arvo. August is all arvo games in Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane. Average temps would be 20°
      All July games are arvo. Couple of night games in June. Can't obviously pick the weather or rain but the chances are better for a team like West Coast to miss the worst weather of winter.

        Sc_Wow · 11/05/2018 at 10:51

        Pick him then, I won’t. History says he’s not a top 10 guy

      Crowboy94 · 11/05/2018 at 13:51

      I'm going Crouch. Was just trying a MID who doesn't have the Round 14 bye issue and one who has the round 12 bye

    ErrolBurns · 11/05/2018 at 11:27

    He doesnt win enough contested ball

goodo73 · 11/05/2018 at 01:33

This week:
English >> McInerney
Fogarty >> Macrae

    Whatyasmokin · 11/05/2018 at 01:58

    Looks good.

    Finnius · 11/05/2018 at 08:00

    I'd wait a week on English and instead get Crossley next week as he is the only good downgrade option next round. Macrae is expensive and I would rather look for a bargain and save 100k, but you get what you pay for I guess.

      goodo73 · 11/05/2018 at 08:34

      Only making the English trade because of NicNat.

      Interested in hearing why you say Macrae is expensive. I know 2 of his 3 highest scores have come in the last 2 weeks but even then he still only has a B/E of 45 and is averaging 132.

        redherringfc · 11/05/2018 at 09:21

        SC gold has Macrae scoring 130’s and 140’s for almost the entire season and his price hitting 700k, but generally is around 670 to 680k.

        Worst case scenario is we look back in a few weeks and decide that we need him and have to pay another 50k on his current price.

        If he can consistently put out scores in the 130’s and 140’s then I guess we’ll look back and say how he was cheap at 628k.

        A couple of scores in the low 100’s (he’s already had a 98 and 103) and he will at least be this cheap again.

          Finnius · 11/05/2018 at 09:52

          he also has a tough run coming up and has to play north melbourne and ben jacobs twice. I can see him getting to 580k before too long. The SC gold projections are always rubbish because they don't accommodate for a lowish score.

          goodo73 · 11/05/2018 at 10:58

          Fair call. 5/7 scores have been 120+, but yeah, will he keep up that production?

          It's a risk-reward game though, and I'm rolling the dice this time. 🙂

        Finnius · 11/05/2018 at 09:53

        don't mind the english trade if that is the case. 100k is 100k and if you save that two weeks in a row by looking at bargains you get an extra premo the week after, which gets you an extra 40 pgg rather than the potential difference of 10 between crouch and Macrae. Crouch is a gun POD as well. He averaged 130 on the stretch home last year.

THE SALTSHAKER · 11/05/2018 at 03:19

Rank 10,046th i think up 10k spots last 2 weeks after 2 weeks in a row of poor captains and going early on my danger warchest i was holding too much money.

DEF: Laird, Savage, Lloyd, Sicily, Doodee, Finlayson (Richards, Naughton)

MID: Danger, Titch, Dusty, Macrae, Fyfe, Kelly Holman ( Banfield, Brayshaw, Barry)

RUCK: Gawn, Nank (Olago)

FWD: Gray, Smith, McLean, Petracca, Fritsch, Higgins (Gil/Lang, Guelfi)

This week, Banfield > Spargo

My other trade not sure? Ronke/Mutch or move on Petracca to Heeny or Yeo (via sic dpp)

or ??

    THE SALTSHAKER · 11/05/2018 at 03:21

    forgot conig in M6 there

Stupid Coach · 11/05/2018 at 05:31

Another great post and Cheat Sheet Damo. After trading Zorko to Cripps instead of Garlett to Sicily last week I am still curled up in the corner in the foetal position and contemplating another wasted season of Supercoach. Down to 21 trades, my team under performing due to poor decisions and not even at the bye rouns yet. Do I bother to trade at all this week or trade Barry/Coffield to Spargo and Garlett to Sicily. What do I do about Buddy?

Appreciate any advice as always Community.

    Simo · 11/05/2018 at 08:01

    Good trades this week. You still have 21 trades so don’t pack it in yet. You may not win over all but have the chance to shape the finals by beating your mates between here and then.

Rick Grimes · 11/05/2018 at 08:04

Higgins or Spargo on field? Wish I could use Franklin as a loop. Instead the useless plonker is gathering dust on the bench. Harden up pal, it's a bruised heel. Even Billings is showing more fight than you! (nah, hes really not, just trying to fire the big guy up).

MEK · 11/05/2018 at 08:17

Would u get Dustin Martin or Matt Crouch

    Ja191 · 11/05/2018 at 08:35

    Matt crouch if it’s m7 dusty if it’s m8, dusty will finish strong

    Finnius · 11/05/2018 at 09:50

    Dusty's BE is still pretty high so he will drop some more cash. Crouch this week and dusty in a few.

Simon · 11/05/2018 at 08:24

Nicnat to grundy
Christensen to rinks

What are your thoughts

Greg · 11/05/2018 at 08:28

Anyone else concerned about Spargo's JS with Viney coming back next week? I'm thinking Mutch might be a safer option.

    Finnius · 11/05/2018 at 09:50

    Please don't do that.

    Phil · 11/05/2018 at 11:52

    Viney is a inside midfielder, they are totally different players. I believe Spargo took Garlett spot who was dropped.

JugHead · 11/05/2018 at 08:29

My rucks are Gawn (R13 bye), Nank (R14 bye) and English (R12 bye).
Nank has to be some risk of being a late out. English has made 150k and has now been dropped.
I have two views to put, and I'd be interested what ppl think.

A. English has made his money.
Turn him into Crossley or McInerney, pocket the cash and put a warm body on the bench in case Nank is out.

B. Hold English, hoping he is there again when Gawn and Nank have their byes.
Forget about Nank being a late out. Don't jump at shadows.

    Keenbutclueless · 11/05/2018 at 09:40

    A few scenarios to consider:

    If you are choosing McInerny and or Crossley for their cash generation as well as ruck cover, then you will need to trade them again to realise that cash. Is there job security enough that they make a decent R3 cover.

    If you are looking for reliable R3 cover, then consider Cox. Can become forward cover as well. Will score on par or better than English McInerny or Crossley and has better job security than all of them.

    If you can save a trade, you only need to pull the trigger on Sunday, if Nank is rested.

    Derek · 11/05/2018 at 13:50

    Hold English. Just getting a rest. Rest will do him good.

    JEL · 11/05/2018 at 19:03

    Why are you worried about the byes for your rucks?
    You need 18 players regardless of position, so you would be fine with 0 rucks as long as there are enough players in other positions.

John · 11/05/2018 at 08:34

Billings to spargo and Finlayson to Hurley, leaves me with about $450k for next week, thoughts?

    Simo036 · 11/05/2018 at 10:16

    Lock it in

      Reds22 · 11/05/2018 at 12:30

      Lock it in

    KSinny · 11/05/2018 at 10:38

    Lock it in Eddie

      ErrolBurns · 11/05/2018 at 11:26

      looking good john

    Krups · 11/05/2018 at 16:33

    Hold. I have got him. Its a marathon mate not a sprint

      Krups · 11/05/2018 at 16:33

      Wrong thread sorry

Simo036 · 11/05/2018 at 08:34

I've kept buddy all this time. Still hold, or trade him out?


    Finnius · 11/05/2018 at 09:50

    hold now. Was touch and go for this week and if you have held him this long then there is no point trading now.

    BadgerHoney7 · 11/05/2018 at 11:32

    if u held him for this long u may as well still hold.

Rick · 11/05/2018 at 08:42

Thoughts on best trades. 23 Trades and $320K
DEF: Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Doedee, Murray, Cole (Naughton, L Murphy)
MID: Fyfe, Danger, Titch, Dusty, Cogs, T Kelly, Finlayson, Holman (Barry, Brayshaw, Banfield)
RUC: Gawn, NicNat (Olango)
FWD: Heeney, Sicily, D Smith, Pettraca, Billings, Henry (Guelfi, Fritsch)

    TheGreatBozza · 11/05/2018 at 08:56

    I'd look at Barry > Spargo, Banfield > Crouch (value) or Macrae (gun)

      ErrolBurns · 11/05/2018 at 11:25

      Bilings for mclean

BadgerHoney7 · 11/05/2018 at 09:10

Do I go Holman to Mutch and Murray to Appleby this week and then go Christensen and Fritsch to Gray and McLean next week / or go Holman to Mutch and Christensen to Gray this week and Finlayson to Keeffe and Fritsch to McLean next week.

This all comes down to who has better JS, Keeffe or Appleby

    AuroraBorealis?! · 11/05/2018 at 09:46

    As a collingwood fan, i love the way Appleby goes about it. However with Reid and Langdon to come back i just cant see him holding his spot. In regards to Keeffe, his JS is speculative as well so you're sort of between a rock and a hard place atm. If you have decent bench players in your defence then i'd go Appleby this week and do a double upgrade next week.

blakeyboi · 11/05/2018 at 09:23

Who sould i get in?

(1 premo 1 rookie)
(2 rookies)

sicily, crouch, macrae, oliver, ronkie or spargo. (out of these)

what 2 should i get in i have 150k and 20 trades

should i got 2 rokkies and 2 premos next week?

ill be trading tracca and possible finlayson or someone else i have.

    Simo036 · 11/05/2018 at 10:15

    Get 2 Rookies this week, not a lot looking like being on the bubble next week.

      blakeyboi · 11/05/2018 at 11:16

      should i trade tracca and a morgan

DANGER1VDUSTY2 · 11/05/2018 at 09:35

McLean (56 BE) is must have this week – period!

The Ranger · 11/05/2018 at 09:40

Haha ha! Of course English is out the same week as Nic Nat is out!! Of course!!
Oh those SC Gods…aren't they hilarious?! Haha ha, hehe he….good one, very funny.

I'm only playing for pride and leagues so I'm gonna eat the donut and stick to my original trades.
Finlayson and Banfield OUT
Crouch and Spargo IN

    WTFoxtrot_58 · 11/05/2018 at 15:02

    I'm hearing you…same boat Ranger.

    Russty_ · 11/05/2018 at 17:39

    Yeah gotta love those Gods, probably one of two times you'd need English's cover and he's dropped lol

KC6 · 11/05/2018 at 09:47

Thinking of doing something crazy this week. English > Jacobs.

-Will have 2 premo rucks in every bye.
-Will have very solid ruck cover for rest of year, especially when NN gets rested towards end of year.
-Can play Jacobs ahead of NN when fixture permits (ie. when Jacobs plays an easy ruck he tends to score well against).

-A lot of money at R3.


    Finnius · 11/05/2018 at 09:49

    no way. Points on field is how you win each week. Don't waste 450 grand and a premo on your bench.

      KC6 · 11/05/2018 at 09:54

      Would you cop the donut of bring in someone like Crossley/McInerney? Neither look like they have solid JS

        Finnius · 11/05/2018 at 10:15

        Depends what you are playing for. If league and doing well then just cop it. If you need wins/rank then consider trading to Grundy. The difference in averages is 20 ppg between Grundy and Nic Nat, which adds up to a lot over the course of the season. Probably worth it. I don't like the mcinerny pick – if trading English would definitely wait a week for Crossley (his rd 10 bye will be helpful throughout the rest of them).

        Wedge · 11/05/2018 at 13:37

        I would trade English this week to crossly. you avoid a definite donut this week and bank some decent cash

Dodge · 11/05/2018 at 10:21

Who should I trade out first? Finlayson or Murray?

One will be turned into McLean via Sicily DPP.

    Ja191 · 11/05/2018 at 10:35

    Finlayson if Murray gets named

    Lazza · 11/05/2018 at 11:52

    What Ja said..

jeff · 11/05/2018 at 10:57

Already have Luke Parker and probably will hold. Should I hold or trade Zac Fisher? (be 90, ave 83)

Petracca + Banfield OR Banfield + Finlayson (via Seedsman swing) OUT –> for Spargo and JPK IN?
OR should I target other cheaper premiums? Yeo, Mitch Robinson? Or is Sicily worth bringing in even though he risks being suspended every week?


ErrolBurns · 11/05/2018 at 11:01

Looking for some help
Bont out in Crouch
Rayner out in Mclean

Bont hips injury will be bad for the rest of the year.
This is my current tem.
DEF Laird Simpson Sicily Doedee Finlayson Murray (Richards O’Connor)

MID Fyfe Mitchell Martin Neale Bontempelli Coniglio Holman Dow (Banfield Coffield Davies Uniacke)

RUCKS Gawn Jacobs (De Koning)

FWD Grey Heeney Stephenson Rayner Fritch Guelfi (Gowers Ronke)

    Lazza · 11/05/2018 at 12:18

    Gee, a sideways trade now … if they were setting Bont up with a season long management plan he wouldn't be playing this week.
    Crouch will still be good value next week.. Rayner to Mclean is a must have .. should consider trading one of Finlayson, Banfield, or Stephenson down to Spargo and going big next week with Crouch and maybe Yeo.

KSinny · 11/05/2018 at 11:06

Billings to McLean and Petracca to Ronke leaving me with $382k in the bank for a potential double upgrade next week. Thoughts community?

    blakeyboi · 11/05/2018 at 11:17


    need to trade billings this week

    Phil · 11/05/2018 at 11:55

    Looks solid assuming you already have Spargo

      KSinny · 11/05/2018 at 11:58


rtz · 11/05/2018 at 11:14

Thinking of going
Holman -> Spargo (Could potentially move Billings and bring Spargo in the FWD line)
Brayshaw -> JPK

What's the community's thoughts on that? Would only leave me with 38k and have the trio of Finlayson, Doedee and Murray almost ripe for the picking.

    KSinny · 11/05/2018 at 11:16

    I'd say go Billings to Spargo

    Doc_1 · 11/05/2018 at 12:10

    I’d move billings on. Have a feeling if it’s wet Holman will be a tackling machine and pump out a big one (much like round 1 in the swamp v north – 96)

Ahmad rubas · 11/05/2018 at 11:16

Who to trade out between
Dow 27 BE
brayshaw 30 BE
Holman 63 BE

    Phil · 11/05/2018 at 11:58

    Probably not Dow he looked really good last week.
    Tough call on the other 2 because Brayshaw will make 20k more this week, but probably not much more. Whereas Holman could lose money this week, or make another 80k if he goes back to early season form

      JugHead · 11/05/2018 at 12:43

      Agree on Dow. I started the year with him and thought I'd made a bad mistake. Could be wrong, but it looks like Carlton have just decided to just play the kid all year. You can afford to do that in the 27th year of your rebuild.
      Won't have high scores but I've got a feeling I'll be needing him at some point when there is midfield carnage, and can be fairly confident he will be playing.

      Ahmad rubas · 11/05/2018 at 12:50

      Yeah I'm pretty set on keeping dow I like him as a Carlton fan

    Lazza · 11/05/2018 at 12:21

    Holman out of those 3 … but if you have either of Garlett or Finlayson .. they should go first.

      Ahmad rubas · 11/05/2018 at 13:16

      I have finlayson but I think he will bounce back and his breakeven will drop

    KSinny · 11/05/2018 at 12:28

    Brayshaw, hes highest score is only 62 which isnt really that good whereas we know Holman can get 90's

      Ahmad rubas · 11/05/2018 at 13:18

      But brayshaw breakeven is so much lower than holman

Nathan · 11/05/2018 at 11:21

I thought Fritsch was abit stiff last week with his score seemed to be playing more as a winger and getting up into defence.. so should I play him or spargo this week??

Cheers guys

    redherringfc · 11/05/2018 at 11:34

    Most of Fritsch’s scores have been around 60 with a 90 against Essendon. Spargo has 2 scores of 80ish.

    I usually look at averages and last weeks scores. This says Spargo.

    Derek · 11/05/2018 at 13:46

    You are 100% Nathan. Well spotted. His role changed last week. Played on the wing. Was getting forward and back. His score should have been better. I can see him doing very well for a few weeks. Suns then Carlton.

Jonzzzy · 11/05/2018 at 11:30

Alright lads, sitting pretty at 652 overall with 22 trades to spare.

Laird, Simpson, McGovern, Doedee, Finlayson, T.Cole (L. Murphy, Naughton)

Fyfe, Macrae, Cripps, Titch, Martin, Coniglio, Kelly, Angus Brayshaw (A Brayshaw, Crowden, Barry)

Nank, Gawn (Olango)

Heeney, Mclean, Lambert, Petracca, Fisher, Henry (Fritsch, Guelfi)

Any suggestions?

I was considering moving tracca onto Sicily.

Next week looking at a downgrade or two, thoughts?

Ben · 11/05/2018 at 11:41

mutch or ronke ?

    Reds22 · 11/05/2018 at 12:31


    Finnius · 11/05/2018 at 14:02

    KSinny · 11/05/2018 at 11:53

    Titch VC, Fyfe C

    Ja191 · 11/05/2018 at 12:09

    Fyfe vc into jelwood

      Sc_Wow · 11/05/2018 at 12:26

      Who’s your loop

        Dan · 11/05/2018 at 12:31

        Na just curious

    Lazza · 11/05/2018 at 12:20

    Gawn into Fyfe

      BVB21 · 11/05/2018 at 13:20

      Same, Fogarty loophole

    Finnius · 11/05/2018 at 13:50

    Clarry/Gawn/Titch into Fyfe. Unsure of VC atm but Fyfe at home against saints is a must IMO.

    Liam · 11/05/2018 at 15:44

    Titch into Grundy

    Krups · 11/05/2018 at 16:32

    Mitchell into Fyfe.

    Danger and Martin look poor options

      Jacob · 11/05/2018 at 18:22

      Cripps into fyfe

FFC · 11/05/2018 at 11:53

M.Crouch seems to be a popular pick for a few coaches…have people considered RD14 bye (assuming you have Fyfe, Martin & T.Kelly) that's 3 down already in the mids.
I'm weighing up keeping Finlayson (DPP) also to assist during bye rounds – not sure if poor tactic? With him and Sicily hopefully can swing them around week to week combined with trades as needed to cover most spots.

    Crowboy94 · 11/05/2018 at 13:48

    You can trade other rookies before the byes to get premos who will be playing etc. I'm getting Crouch regardless of the byes because he is so cheap for the scores he can produce consistently

Phil · 11/05/2018 at 12:02

For everyone with a Billings and/or Petracca laying turds all over there forward line,that are reluctant to fork out 150k for sideways trade, has another option presented itself?
Rory Lobb is fit again and a similar price. The knee injury may have been a blessing in disguise to finally get the groin right. Thoughts?

    Phil · 11/05/2018 at 12:05

    The way I see it there are 3 must have forwards. Gray, Heeney & McLean. That's leaves 3 spots for players that will be around about a 95 average. I think Lobb is capable, whereas Billings & Petracca probably 80

blakeyboi · 11/05/2018 at 12:19

sal 150k
Defence: R laird M hurley T cole T doedee T duman S Murray

Bench: L Murphy, A Morgan

T Mich Dusty Fyfe Cripps S coniglio Z merrett T kelly J finlayson

Bench: D Fogarty, D Barry, N coffield

M Gawn N naitnui

should i go

or petracca – macrae and ???? – spago

Sellars1226 · 11/05/2018 at 13:09

Got in Crouch and Cole by swinging Finlayson into the mid by Seedsman DPP and trading out Luke Ryan in DEF with now Seedsmans taking his spot.

    WithAllDueRespect · 11/05/2018 at 13:56

    I really like Cole. I'm thinking also Finlayson for Cole. He is projected to make 96k in the next 3 weeks so that negates in my mind his price of 238k. Ave of 84.

      Sellars1226 · 11/05/2018 at 14:48

      Yep he looks good doesn't he? A good downgrade option in my opinion

jordan batis · 11/05/2018 at 13:10

hi supercoach community, i currently have nic nat and im thinking of trading him else because im not confident in beating my two opponents in both my money leagues. im thinking about trading kruzer in even though i traded him out 5 weeks ago because i didnt like him. im not a strong supercoach player so i would appreciate some advice. im short on numbers because i thought it was a good idea to keep greene on the bench.
p.s. does anyone else think nic nat was suspended because of his skin colour.

    Chris · 11/05/2018 at 13:24

    Hi Jordan, you have to decide what your priority is. If you need to win this week, then go ahead and trade NicNat. But if you want the best team at the end of the year, it may be worth keeping NicNat. You may lose this week but the extra trade will be handy later in the year. And no, I don't think it's fair to assume NicNat was suspended because of his skin colour.

      Frankie · 11/05/2018 at 14:35

      Good advice Chris. And Jordon, you are either very young and/or stupid and unfortunately racially prejudiced.

      jordan batis · 11/05/2018 at 14:39

      what are trying to say! I'm a racist! the afl are the racist ones, if nic nat was white he wouldn't of gotten that suspension. From the sound of your comment you clearly have no knowledge what so ever about supercoach Chris. Stop sitting on the fence and help me make a decision!!!

        Whatyasmokin · 11/05/2018 at 17:46

        You sound racist. You have to the conclusion that if Nic Nat was white he wouldn't have been suspended. People can now see you're clearly biased when it comes to skin colour/place of origin.

        What about the other rubbish decisions the MRP has made over the past couple of years……there are many, these are not racially driven.

        If you're ready to accuse and jump to a conclusion be prepared to be called out on it.

        A lot of people are annoyed at the poor decisions the MRP have been making.

    Whatyasmokin · 11/05/2018 at 17:49

    Im not sure Id trade Kreuzer back in maybe just cover with a cheap ruck rookie (theres two playing this week) or get someone who is physically reliable, dont wanna burn a bunch of trades on those two positions in ruck, itll affect your entire team through the year.

Noah · 11/05/2018 at 13:22

IS billings a must to trade this week?

    Finnius · 11/05/2018 at 13:49

    Not at all. Has lost that much cash you might as well hold. More likely to score more than say Stephenson and at the same price I would trade the rookie.

TheGreatBozza · 11/05/2018 at 14:40

option 1:
Richards > Spargo (Sicily DPP)
Banfield > Ronke (Higgins DPP)

Option 2:
Finlayson > Macrae (via multiple DPP)
Banfield > Spargo


min0008 · 11/05/2018 at 15:21

Hold Petracca or trade for Sicily and Banfield to Spargo.

    Russty_ · 11/05/2018 at 17:38

    Sounds good to me. (Trade!)

    KSinny · 11/05/2018 at 17:43


Jeff · 11/05/2018 at 16:24

My team is a mess and I'm looking for some advice. As of this week I have 23 trades and $271k and as of this week I will have 5 non-playing bench players. Here's my team:

Def: Laird, Savage, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray, Naughton (O'Connor, Murphy)

Mid (Fyfe, Danger, Titch, Dusty, Cripps, Merrett, T Kelly, Holman (Banfield, Brayshaw, Barry)

Ruck Gawn, Natinui (English)

Fwd: Heeney, McLean, Smith, Billings, Fritsch, Henry (Venables, Guelfi)

I'm mainly tossing up between two options: Either

Trade out English and Banfield to Crossley and Spargo.

This would leave me with 600k to play with next week, avoid a donut and avoid losing cash later on English (BE 75)


Trade out Finlayson and Banfield for Spargo and Sicily

This is the cheapest that Sicily will be and his dual position status is so helpful.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Kym · 11/05/2018 at 17:55

    Same situation for me. Taking a donut with Nic Natanui. Going Sicily (I know, such a flog. Cannot ignore his scoring potential for the price) from Finlayson. Also Spargo from Banfield. This gives me enough in reserve for another upgrade next week.

Krups · 11/05/2018 at 16:29

Gday blokes. Thoughts please…

Finlayson to Sicily and Billings to McLean or
Finlayson to Sicily and bring Crouch in for Banfield/Holman
Billings to Sicily and Crouch in for Banfield/ Holman

    SpeedyCerviche · 11/05/2018 at 16:46

    Option 1 for me. Crouch isn't predicted to increase in price much so you could still bring him in next week.

      Krups · 11/05/2018 at 16:49

      Good point about Crouch

chugsworth · 11/05/2018 at 16:55

DEF: Laird, Hurley, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray, Naughton (Mirra, Murphy)
MID: Fyfe, Danger, Cripps, Titch, Martin, Coniglio, Z Merrett, T Kelly (Banfield, Brayshaw, Garlett)
RUC: Gawn, Olango (Naitanui)
FWD: McLean, Sicily, Smith, Stephenson, Fritsch, Henry (ZGL, Walters)

22 trades, holding NN and Walters since they're both only 1-2 weeks off plus don't need to burn trades for sideways/upgrades later.
Potential options for this week:
1. Stephenson + Banfield > M Crouch + Spargo. Walters to loophole scores MID for Zerrett and T Kelly.
2. Stephenson + Banfield > Yeo + Spargo via Finlayson DPP. Walters to loophole scores FWD for ZGL and Fritsch.

Don't want to complete mids too early but Crouch at a good price, would Kelly @ M9 be a waste when fielding rooks in DEF/FWD when Yeo presents himself as an option?

    cburgz · 11/05/2018 at 17:39

    you are pretty stacked already in the mids, I would upgrade either a back or fwd (and swing sicily back)- darling could be a decent buy up fwd

Nick · 11/05/2018 at 16:59

G'day Community id like your thoughts on Ronke's job security.

With franklin and co. due to return in the next week or 2, do you think Ronke will be the first out? Hes a good young player with good scoring potential due to his insane amount of tackles. If he keeps his spot for the next few weeks he is probably a must have, if not it will be a wasted trade. Wondering if anyone here has thought about bringing him in, and theres case for and against.


    anthdepa · 14/05/2018 at 10:39

    I think he is safe

Need Help!!!! · 11/05/2018 at 17:15

Hey community 21 trades left and 323k in the bank need some help.

Laird, Simpson, Yeo, Doedee, Finlayson, murray (C'O' shea, Naughton)

Fyfe, holman, Cripps, mitchell , Martin, Coniglio, Kelly, Barry (Banfield, Cofield, Brodie)

Nic nat, Gawn (Cameron)

Heeney, Mclean, Smith, Petracca, Fritsch, crowden (Fogarty, Ahern)

Any suggestions?

    Mid upgrades needed. Cop the NicNat donut.

    Barry & Banfield to Crouch / Oliver / Macrae & even JPK

    Then look to offload the defender rooks. That’s a start.

      Forgot to add, try to grab Spargo too. Maybe target Macrae & Spargo this week, pocket some cash and look at Crouch next week. Good luck

    petracca before he loses any more cash

    Petracca's a fail this year…I'd dump his non breaking out ass.

Sicily, McLean or Dusty?

    Russty_ · 11/05/2018 at 18:44

    Sicily or Mclean, Dusty getting tagged by Jacobs this week.
