Supercoach Cheat Sheet | Round 4

Published by Community Member on

Afternoon Community,

I’m guessing you’re in one of two camps this week? A) My SC team is perfect, I traded Dusty to Neale last week, and all my rookies are making cash, or B) I traded Heeney to Rockliff/Fyfe and Balta is my best rookie.

Whichever way you sit right now, there’s still a chance to turn it all around before the season ends.

In this week’s cheat sheet, I’ve outlined a couple of players on the bubble, a few MPRs and fallen angels to watch (maybe not buy this week, but in a few weeks), and a few former falling premos that are still in a high percentage of teams that you should offload as soon as possible.

Experts always warn against trading out premos as much as possible, but sometimes you just need to “know when to fold ’em” (cue Kenny Rogers’ the Gambler).

I held Hibberd for way too long last year, like many of you, and I’m not getting burnt again. If you do trade out premos, remember to try and trade like for like. If you downgrade at this stage, you’ll still need to upgrade them later at the expense of another trade. 

Good luck this week, MattyB.

Community's thoughts on dusty – Merrett? Bit left field but strapped for cash. Looked quite good against the dees. Could he replicate his back half of 2018 form?


Luckily I traded Dusty to Neale after round 2. Just didn't like the body language and lack of effort against Greenwood tag.


Nicceee Garryyyyy


I traded out dusty for brad Crouch before round 1. No regrets yet.


Not a bad trade. I need to make the same decision, Tommy. I'm tossing up Dusty to either Merrett or Brayshaw at the moment. I got burned last year starting Merrett and traded him before he came home strong. Merrett is also in less teams right now, so may be a bit of a POD.


Thanks Matty.

What are we to do with Hore?
Stuck on 1 game and EMG this week.
Trade to Lockhart or hold?


Dunno if Lockhart's worth trading to…Wagner could be if he keeps his gig.


I traded Hore to Scrimshaw last week. Personally I don't see him getting many games, especially if he can't crack the team that's missing May and Lever. And does Lockhart have the same issue with Job security when they both come back?

BUT trades are also worth something. You don't need to have every rookie making money each week. At some point, you want to trade your increased rookies down to cheaper ones. If you've got at least one performing rookie on the bench (assume you have a few of Clark, Duursma, Collins, Scrimshaw), you can just leave him there and save 2 trades for the season.


Thanks Matty,
Think I will just hold Hore for now and use as a loop for the other rookies


Aged magnificently


Thanks Matty, Stewart's been a nice surprise this year, didn't start with him but wish I had now, he's looking like a solid improver.
Can't wait to see how Marshall pans out too, wouldn't have the goolies to start him though.


When is Zach Tuohy scheduled to be back? Will be interesting to see if that affects his output.


Good point Ando, but Avg 85 last year only missing 1 game. He also had 7 tons, and 3 x 95s. About to hit 50 games (albeit a bit older than most 50 gamers at 26 years) so is in the perfect position to take it to the top level.

Tuohy avg 85 also in 2018, had 3 tons, and 7 x 90s. I think Tuohy's output is pretty stable, but Stewart's is on the way up still.


Thanks for that MattyB. I guess we'll find out!


Cheers Matty, in a real dilemma with Hoff. I've got him in as ruck cover in case one of the big two go down so think holding him for that purpose only makes sense. But that's a lot of $$ on a cover player.

Ignoring the above and looking at him purely as a FWD, if i trade him out I gotta bring in a keeper. Is there anyone that looks like a FWD keeper at the moment aside from Danger, Kelly and Heeney?


Boak, Dahlhaus, Daniel…all going ok so far…could change as the season progresses.


I really like Boak, but it's been years since he's kept up a decent enough average to be a top 6-8 fwd. And with Dahl I'm wary of having multiple players from the same team, especially before the bye rounds.

I guess the real question is, if there's no clear standout FWD who clearly looks like they'll finish top 6-8 fwd, is it still worth trading him out on a punt or should I hold and treat him as ruck cover?


Magic 8 ball says: "It's too early to tell".

The 3 you mentioned are definitely keepers, but beyond that it's not clear yet who's gonna be top 6-8 Fwds. I agree that the Hoff is a lot of money for "cover", but he'll make you good forward points in the mean time until the premos become clear. Then sideways trade knowing it's only cost you 1 trade.


Cheers Matty, that was my line of thinking really. Hopefully one of the top premos will fall enough to be similarly priced to Hoff around byes, where there's a clearer picture of which FWDs are looking good


Thanks Matty, Libba is tempting me, I can swap Cousins straight over and get him in. I remember having him in past years and then…….trading him out injured. Will it happen again? Will he give me hundreds before he goes?


Dunno about Libba. You are right, he was flying in 2016 and 2017 until injury and form struck him down quickly. And that is a large sticking point for me. I don't have him and won't try to get him.

But he's got a -55 BE this week so he will make money for you, and he could be a stepping stone to another player.


Thanks Matty, I let him sit there in my midfield overnight and now I don’t like the look of him there. Come end of season I will need Neale, Macrae and whoever else goes large late season. That probably won’t be Libba.


Should I trade Rocky to Neale as I have the extra cash to make the trade?


Rocky's probably gonna play this week though, anyone else you could cull for Neale?…an expendable possible breakout mid who isn't living up to expectations.


I think you just described Rocky MKVI …"an expendable possible 'repeat' breakout mid who isn't living up to expectations" …. .was on his way to score under 60 when he copped the hit last week…


Is it worth trading Setterfield to Rozee or has that ship sailed.

I see Rozee will likely make 100k over the next 3 weeks vs Setterfields 30k. Bonus would be able to swing Rozee to defence with Moore.


Maybe go the other direction, down to Lockhart to Wagner. Could make a similar amount of coin in that time. Rozee will only make $100k if he averages 85+ which seems unlikely


Is it worth trading Setterfield to Rozee even after his huge price rise?


What to do with jack darling?
Any ideas


Thinking of
Darling and settlefield our for de goey and wagner


Don't trade in Degoey


Hey guys, I have Darling, he doesn't look to me like the darling of 2018. Anyone else considering trading him? I'm considering Marshall for some cash! Cheers


Fyfe sent out a tweet last night telling everybody he will not be playing in the Derby this week. It was the last sentence in his message that caught my eye. It read, "P.S Pls don't trade me out of your super coach teams". Is he trying to tell the community something? Keep the faith guys because when I come back I am gonna go huge?? Do we believe him? Right now he is not in my team any more. Maybe I need to hit the trade reverse button and bring him back in. What are others doing?




Week out will probably drop another 30k in his 1st week back cant really on my bench…gone….for now.


He and Neale keep swapping places at my M2. It’s very easy to get sucked into financial decisions early in the year; and trades that burn out as a result


Just gonna hold Hawk..don't want to have to bring him back in again later, just seems like a waste.


gotta hold Mr life


I haven't made any trades yet and am pretty sorted with injuries and rookies. Have $86k in the bank.
The only trade I am looking at this week is to offload Dunkley. He is suffering from playing less minutes in the midfield.
I was thinking Dunkley to Kelly, but TK might not even play this week.
Should I just hold Dunkley and hope he comes good or bring Kelly in or someone else?


Thoughts on trading Joel Selwood out this week, I currently have 27 trades and have got rid of greene/dusty and hore already, here is my team;

Def: Lloyd/Laird/Williams/Smith/Duursma/Scrimshaw/Clark/Burgess
Mids: Cripps/Neale/Selwood/M.Crouch/Libba/Walsh/Constable/Butters/Atkins/Scott/Gibbons

If I decide to trade him out, who are the best options to go for, can get any premo in from any posiition thanks to DPP swings?


Hi Guys,
Don't think the punt i took on Harris Andrews will pay off.
Thoughts on trading H Andrews > T Stewart? Will also have to go early with McKay > Stack (via DPPs) for the extra $$$ needed.

Def: Laird , Hurn , Andrews , Duursma , Scrimshaw , Clark (McKay , Hore)
Mid: Macrae , Cripps , Fyfe , Oliver , M.Crouch, Rockliff , Constable , Drew (Butters , Scott , Gibbons)
Rck: Grundy , Gawn (Bines)
Fwd: Danger , R.Gray , Moore , Parker , Setterfield , Petruccelle (Burgess , Balta)


Go early on Stack?


Drew and settlefield our for stack and rozee

Is it worth it



You will be making 2 trades for virtually no financial gain.

Have another look at Stack this week. Next week you could bring him in, but don’t do it for a rookie who still has a lot of money to make.


Rocky worth cutting to Libba?


I feel like that is just swapping humps on the same camel


Keep rocky, should destroy the midfield-less tigers!


Should have traded Dusty last week but didn’t. Tempted to trade him for Libba and keep as M8 or 9. Thoughts?


Not taking my VC score. Tossing up between Grundy, Criops or Macrae for the C. Who do you think?


I'd go Grundy Steve…against English, who plays like an Englishman.


cool <img src="; width="1">


Thoughts on Harris Andrews?

I was backing him in to average 95-100 this season but after last weeks 40 I’m worried if he drops a few more of those he’s more likely to only average 85-90 which is not what a want from a keeper in defence.

Have the cash to do a straight swap to Ryan or Stewart.


Can downgrade Brodie smith to Rozee and upgrade to Whitfield this week or Lloyd next week. Rozee forecast to increase by $120k in next 3 weeks which would make him around $400k so trading smith gives me the cash to upgrade now bit should also net me cash from a decent scoring rookie….. thoughts?


I have one really pressing question and I hope someone can answer this. How long does it take for a rookie that averages sixty to reach $300000? And if either they don’t reach it or it takes a long time how long until their cash increase falters?
