Supercoach Cheat Sheet | Pre-Round 7

Published by Statty Matty on

It’s starting, supercoaches. We finally have some decent rookie options on each line on the bubble, and we have quite a number of premos who’ve dropped in price, and will continue to drop this week. Apart from Fyfe and Treloar who are mentioned in the cheat sheet, there’s Dangerfield, Coniglio, Oliver, Laird, Ablett, Hawkins, Selwood, and others who could be on your radar.

As I said last week, go to your favourite stats source, open up your spreadsheets, and start looking at your top 15 or so in each position. Work out who you can afford to bring in, and when and then work out your plan. I’m curious to see in the comments who you’ll target to be in your side come the end of the season. Are there any from left field that we may not yet have considered? This is where a POD is worth his weight in supercoach points.

When identifying your prospects, remember it’s not just the points they’ve scored in past rounds … those are already locked away. You need to consider the points they will score from now.
Who finishes a season strong?
Who missed a pre-season and is finding form?
Who has a good run home (albeit we’re barely even 1/4 done yet)?

Good luck this week,
Statty Matty.

Thinking of going
Scrimshaw to sicilly and
Contstable to hayes


I would recommend going Butters to Hayes, if you have butters


I am going Constable to Hayes. Cash generation means nothing if you aren't getting points on your field each week. I am ranked in the top 150s so looking to go super aggressive this year to keep up with the pack. Depends what you are playing for, but I don't mind an aggressive strategy – other players may get more money out of their rookies, but if you have an extra premium, then who cares?


Yeah i would rather go butters, but that means cant afford Sicily and butters does have a lower breakeven.

neil demons delight

congrats on your rank Finn.It's the only way for guys like you to go. Watch for that one that gets lost like Westhoff Forwards remain the key Good luck bud NDD


Good move.
Constable OMITTED not managed or injured, with the plethora of gun mids at the cathouse he might not get another go this year!
Remember how he absolutely starred in JLT2018 but couldn't get a game that year? Does that suggest that he's not the coaches favorite?

Michael Luber

Strange though. Ave 80, was managed in rd 5. Came back and scored 79 in a team that smashed last years premiers. Gee.. Geelong are doing it well right now, and it kills me.


What to do with R.Gray? Anyone holding?
Have 26 trades left, don't want to use a trade on a sideways.


4 weeks is too long to hold, Swoop. Port might even hold him back for a week as they have the round 12 bye


I can't straight swap him for T.Kelly, need extra 30k
To make up that cash do I:
a) Cash in Scrimshaw (for Young or Answerth)
b) Get rid of a non-playing rookie: Burgess (for Young or Answerth) or B Scott (for Hayes or Answerth)


Definitely make this trade, anything over 2 is definitely with 26 left. Scott or Burgess to Hayes and Gray to T Kelly


Send him to the Boakhouse


What is s.collins BE?




the big seven and the big OH.


just joking, this is unnecessary.

One raw sugar

That's just silly


You tell him Sugar


Is rocky still value? Great draw & bye friendly I might go clarke too Tkelly & Scott to Rockliff ..


Seems like it. Capable of big scores. 50k more gets you coniglio.


Nice one man, needed that extra bit of confirmation to go Cousins to Hayes.
I only wanna trade J Clark and Cousins but seeing how neither is playing was tempting to wait a week and see if Ainsworth backs it up


I think Geelong have said Clark will play this week? Not sure if that changes your plans. I'm going Scrimshaw to Answerth a week early


For non Boak holders, have we missed the boat on him?

I could do Butters down to Hayes and then either Drew/Petrucelle to Boak? Is he a must to get in?

Otherwise I’ll look to do a straight swap Jordan Clark to a premo defender

Thoughts community?


Seems like boak is overpriced now for what he will deliver from now. Still looks to be a good option if coin is no issue. Better options all ovet thr park to pick up it seems (kelly, fyfe, et al)


Lets see if Greenwood slows him up this weekend. If so, he might be a nice snaffle in a couple of weeks


I’m going to take a punt on Rotham if he gets named this week, will make a quick 100k with that 96 in his average


Hi Community looking for some guidance I have 30 trades left 24K in the bank
Lloyd, B.Smith, Williams, Scrimshaw, Duursma, Hore (Clark, Burgess)

Cripps, Neale, Macrae, M.Crouch, B.Crouch, Walsh, Constable, Butters (Atkins, Gibbons, Scott)

Grundy, Gawn (Bines)

Dangerfield, Heeney, T.Kelly, Dunkley, Drew, Petruccelle (Parker, Setterfield)

My thoughts is holding again, because none of my rookies have fully maxed in price and I don’t see the value in downgrading Scott or Burgess for just 50 profit.

Any guidance much appreciated!


Looks like your still at the starting gate.

You might find all your rookies are ready at the same time. Remember you only have 2 trades a week. Not having any cash you will struggle to trade out rookies and trade in premiums.

I suggest you start trading out rookies now and build a war chest so you can go bang bang.

Parker, Scrimshaw, Clark, Atkins, Butters, Setterfield will all have to go in the next couple of weeks, not enough trades!


Cheers Derek, I’ve Built myself a nice spreadsheet on the downgrades I want to do over the next three to four weeks until Whitfield bottoms out in price

Is Atkins to Hayes where to start
Scrimshaw to Rothman (if selected)

Then a double fwd downgrade the week after for Larkey and Corbett


Atkins to Hayes. Rotham has terrible JS. Scrimshaw to the Brisbane rookie on the bubble next week would be better


Yeah ok, That just means I’ll Have to do one downgrade in the fowardline instead of 2 next week


With Constable and Scrimshaw out I’ve opted for the double-downgrade this week Scrimshaw to Answerth (week early dangerous but better JS then Young) and Constable to Hayes (this time being omitted as a Geelong supporter I’m not confident he’ll return anytime soon with Scott Selwood not far away)
407K in the bank now I’m building that war chest Derek!


I admire your patience to this point, but now is the time to get cracking.

Unfortunately the bubble boys this week are all a bit iffy. When teams drop I think you should pick one that looks like he’ll play a few games and score ok, the cheaper the better. Then see how much you can get by trading out 2 rookies close to there max price. If you total 600k you’ll be in the game.

Scrimshaw (you should send him on now) and Constable (has more to make, but think of the extra points each week) plus your 24k puts you close to 640k, Hayes or Young leaves you with about 520k for a defender, mid or forward (using a dpp in your forwards) to upgrade. I’ve said his name a lot this week, I’d go Hawkins at 504k.


I just checked out who else you could get for 520k or less and the choice isn’t great.



Cheers mate! I’m looking at Caleb Daniel for my first Forward upgrade then Whitefield once he bottoms out in price then Boak after his Bye same for Fyfe and Hurn after their byes as well, let the downgrading begin


I’m at north training and have got word that Bailey Scott won’t play this week. Would that make him a trade out for Hayes since he won’t play this week? Or trade out Atkins and use Scott as a loop until he gets picked?


What are scotts chances of cracking back until the side in the next few weeks…?


Disappointing news. North suck. They need to play the kids


Thoughts on Scrimshaw -> Laird?
Or do you think it's better to hold and wait for better options?


Got rich? Sici also an option. Im looking a the same. Will probly go fyfe and kelly double and burn some cash ive got thou


Laird highly likely to be a top 6 defender.


What do we think of Daniel rich? I’m starting to warm to him. Draw bye n job role all terrific


I haven’t really taken much notice of his draw but his bye certainly isnt terrific. Round 13 bye stinks


Steven out mental health issues.


Anyone know what the JS of Mitchell Lewis is?


Don't think anyone's sure about that yet Stoo


I watched the game last week and Lewis isn't worth trading in at this stage


JS is good, Hawks need a successor for Roughead. But don't think his scoring will be strong enough.


whats happened to Miles


Hey Statty Matty, you could have thrown a red herring into the rucks, such as Kreuzer, only 400k or so, might do alright from here on.

Who doesn’t love a good red herring?

I think this is a rhetorical question (I’ll have to check with an English teacher), I don’t need people to tell me they don’t love me.


I'm guessing but he might not've for the fact that he's out this week Herring with an adductor strain, but if he gets back next week and stays fit, yeah he's an option for those who don't have the 2 G's, Mumford and or ROB.


I just noticed that. It would have been quite a red herring.

He’s missed far too much footy over the last year and a bit anyway.


Go early on Andswerth or Joyce for S/Shaw.

Need the funds to bring in Fyfe for Constance.

Thoughts ??


Wouldn't trade constable


Go early on Answerth


Have nothing against moving constable on for Fyfe. Missed 2/3 games and this time he’s omitted not ‘managed’ it’s a tough 22 to get back into. Not real big on going early with rookies is there a way to get hayes in?


Constance isn't so constant anymore…probs Answerth if going least you'll have Fyfe, and a double line loophole if it doesn't work out with Answerth.


hey guys thoughts on scrimshaw and atkins to hayes and caleb Daniel in the fwd line via ddp? I already have tim Kelly so Daniel is the only premo I can afford and he is good for my byes as well


Tossing up between Collins to Sicily this week, because Collins Be is 70 and likely won't make me more $

Other option is Libba to Fyfe because Fyfe is good price.

Will Fyfes price go up more than Collins price will go down?


Round 7 teams have dropped! Let's chat live supercoach trades now!


Why not set up a live chat on this site mate?


Asking us to leave this site to visit your personal online speculation is "advertising within the comments"


a) Too hard to do on the site as it exists
b) I'd rather use a platform specifically designed for live streaming
c) long term we'll be able to use it to generate a small amount of funds to cover server/storage costs of the website and won't be out of pocket anymore


Scrimshaw managed!!!


Probably almost time to go anyway.


True Russty, not sure who i can punt him for. Think i'm just gonna hold this week and pray Answerth is still a good option next week. I'm planning to bring in a premo POD and badly need a juicy rookie to be able to be culled


Fair enough. He had a monster first half last week and then ran out of diesel. He's part of the hawks best 22 and equal to Duursma as your keeper M6/7 loop


Im sorry but how did Constable get omitted???


Poor defensive mindset.
Exactly the same thing that kept him out of the team last year.


Getting Kelly in this week. Trade Scrimshaw and play Petch/Parker/Setters on field OR trade Petch and play Clark on field?




Now looks like Marshall is back for the saints! Is he a hold?

What’s his breakeven? Anyone able toHelp?


BE 79… hold and watch


Stuffs my trades! Is his js stable now with longer out


Hey Beard…think Longer only came in cause Marshall was out, I'd hold, he could turn out to be a gem.


Thanks Rusty!

Leaves me with next question then.

Sicily, Lloyd, Hurn? Money’s not an issue now (before it meant Moore had to go if I took Lloyd) now it’s a straight swap for scrimshaw.

Also is Scott worth culling or Atkin or burgess for Hayes?


Or Shai Bolton instead of Hayes?


I'd get whichever defender helps your byes the most, (you need all 3)…and then regarding Hayes..I'm happy to pass on him and maybe to Answerth next week if he performs again this week.
There are always other rookies on the way too, sometimes it's just exercising patience, and hanging onto a few donuts for a week or 2.
Probably wouldn't trade Atkins at all, if he keeps getting a game, could even be there at the end as backup.


Do we know Lloyd’s breakecen? All 3 don’t effect me currently (Hurn, Lloyd, Sicily’s)


Hurn is the better value and an almost POD still. This week. Sicily will increase by lesss than Hurn and Lloyd will decrease in price.
As for the others, cash generation should be your objective
Scott will make 19k if he scores 54
Atkins will make 12k if he scores 47
Hayes will make 54k if he scores 63
Burgess will lose 2k if he scores his ave


Trev isn’t Sicily’s breakeven 80 something and hurns 100+

neil demons delight

Longer is now a back up to marshall Could still be a top 6 forward


Do you still have Marshall Neil?…hope he works out for ya mate.

neil demons delight

yes mate Still going to make coin and possibly an m6


If Clark doesnt play i cop a donut in the backline, thoughts on scrimshaw and scott to young and hayes as my 4th and 5th trades


Scrimshaw could go this week easy, has done his job…I'm going him to Daniel this week.
I'd go Hayes before Young.


Only if you cant trade scrimshaw for a keeper otherwise keep him until the byes, Clark was also managed for a week and you kept him.
If you're worried about your def bring in a performer and potential keeper, Rich and Stewart are both still cheap and if your like to tread a dangerous line Houli is even cheaper.
Maybe if you turn scott into Hayes you can turn Scrimshaw into a premo defender


Thoughts on Young? His JS looks alright but scoring potential doesnt. Could be handy on field option around the byes with that favourable bye


No. his only value is as a BENCH cashout.


Laird, Whitfield, D Moore, Collins, Scrimshaw, Duursma, Burgess, Clark,
Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Butters, Constable, Scott, Atkins, Gibbons
Gawn, Grundy, Bines
Danger, Heeney, Boak, Drew, Parker, Petrucelle, Setterfield, Balta
146K in bank. Thinking of getting T Kelly in. What's the best downgrade target to make this happen?

Hard luck

Do I get Fyfe in midfield or Hurn in defence? I Have 2 rookies in def on field and 3 in midfield. Either of these trades will drop a rookie off field


Fyfe by a long long way. Hurn is almost at his peak while fyfe is the complete opposite


Fyffe everyday of the week.
3 onfield mid rookies is 1 or 2 too many at this stage of the season. Mids make the points


collins to young and moore to sicily? thoughts?


Should I trade Constable to get Fyfe?




Really worried about Constables longevity now. Think it might be time to cash him out and move on. Thoughts?




Def: Lloyd WHITFIELD Smith Moore SCRIMSHAW Hore (Duursma Clark)
Mid: Cripps Neale Fyfe Bont O’Meara Walsh CONSTABLE Butters (Atkins Smith Gibbons)
Ruc: Grundy Gawn (ROB)
Fwd: Danger Heeney Petracca Drew Parker Setterfield (Petrucelle Balta)

26 trades and 10k remaining

I was thinking Petracca and Atkins/Smith to Kelly and Hayes but I’m not sure



Unless you have the cash to turn Scrimshaw into Stewart suckup the 1-week loss of whitfield and hold scrimshaw for a week, Duursma and Clark are acceptable replacements.
Your M7-8 are are bad this week so it's time to get a keeper for constable and your fwds are also not so flash.
So, I suggest Petracca to to Baker and Constable to Fyffe.
Losing Petracca erases an early mistake and getting Baker will equal/improve the ave of your f3. Ptracca to Baker will also give you 186k making the constable to Fyffe trade easier.


I already have Fyfe but I like the idea of two haha


Lol hahah ooops Too many conversations not enough personalities.
Maybe Macrae,, Merret, Treloar, Rocky etc


Is Clark even playing??


anyone know Clarke’s and Atkins breakecen?


Clark 43
Atkins 25
Lloyd 132


your a legend rusty thank you!


Anytime mate.


Also Lloyd’s breakeven?

The Ranger



I've been burnt before but is anyone else tempted by houli? 440k

Rick Grimes

Very injury prone.


Has great JS now but his body is a worry, need durable guys going into the long haul.


Yeah on paper it looks good but, when you do the obligatory due diligence it looks way scary


constable -> Hayes
Scrimshaw -> laird
Constable ->Rockliff
Scrimshaw -> houli


Rocky and a Houli has the potential to ruin your season.

You’ve missed one of the main reasons to play Rocky and that was to get his price rise and then use as a stepping stone. He still could turn out to be a good pickup.

Risk versus reward. I’d play it safe with option 1.


Was thinking that mate, just wanted confirmation! Do you think constable -> Hayes is the way to go or hold him? I can get laird anyway


How about Constable to Rocky and holding scrimshaw and the trade?
Scrimshaw will come back next week and will be a solid bench/loop keeper AND Houli has already had his big score for the year and already done the annual hammy, at 31+ and with a dodgy hammy I doubt that he'll play more than 80% of the rest of the season and his averaged will only decline.


Need to trade in defence, with Whitfield out. Don’t want to field Lockhart (great pick up he was)


Remember trying to plan anything last year Holty?…we all ended up in the foetal position sucking our thumbs lol


Newman was a mistake, thinking of going Laird, Sicily or Boak via Moore.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.


if you started him and got his 134 wouldnt say it was a mistake out of those 3 i like laird


I have Robbie Gray. What are my best options? I have $710k to spend when I trade Gray out.

Option 1: Gray to Boak
Option 2: Gray to Fyfe or Neale (Would probably go Fyfe as he is really cheap, but can afford Neale). This option would require me to move Setterfield to the forward line and lose any M/F link and would also be light up forward

FYI – My main forwards are Danger, Kelly, R.Gray (who is going out) and D.Moore. My midfield is Cripps, Macrae, Oliver, Treloar and Walsh


I need some advice. I have two Trade options for the next couple of weeks:
Week 1:
Parker to Daniel
Atkins to Hayes
Constable to Fyfe

Week 2:
Scrimshaw to Answerth
Moore to Boak
Scrimshaw to Answerth
Moore to Boak or Daniel


Need help with backline,

Hurn Whitfield Crips Andrews Scrimshaw Duursma Burgess Lockhart

Have $259.800 in the bank


Hurn or Sicily?




Hurn for me, far more consistent


Hurn for me


Lloyd Sicily or Hurn 😐


Lloyd, Hurn, Sicily in that order (assuming price doesn't matter)


Laird, Whitfield, D Moore, Collins, Scrimshaw, Duursma, Burgess, Clark,
Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Butters, Constable, Scott, Atkins, Gibbons
Gawn, Grundy, Bines
Danger, Heeney, Boak, Drew, Parker, Petrucelle, Setterfield, Balta
146K in bank. What's the best way I can avoid this donut in DEF. What two trades would you make?


Scrimshaw to Sicily
Atkins /Butters / Constable to Hayes
Then hope Clark plays?


Maybe it's the Scrimshaw/Constable double. My T Kelly plans may have to wait until next week.


Was also considering that trade. But likely to stick with getting Boak in for Petruccelle and Hayes in for Butters.

Double downgrade Scrimshaw and Constable next week for Answerth and another mid.

24 trades left. Trying to keep my top 10 ranking.

Hurn, Williams, Smith, Duursma, Wilkie, Hore (Whitfield , Scrimshaw)
Neale, Cripps, Oliver, Coniglio, Libba, Walsh, Ross, Hayes (Gibbons, Scott, Constable)
Gawn, Grundy (O’brien)
Boak, Danger, Heeney, Billings, Daniel, Drew (Parker, Bines)


Petrucelle with the -3 breakeven, so I will be holding so he makes me some more $$.
Definitely need a Defender so you reckon Sicily or go straight up to J Lloyd?


Lloyd the safer option. Tad more expensive but only player to score over a hundred every game.

I’ve gone Sicily as a bit of a POD at this stage. Averaging something like 120 over his last 3. Plays against Melbourne this week so hoping for a few intercept marks


Hey guys, any ideas for what i can do would be great!

26 trades left, 80k in the bank.

Def: Hurn, Laird, Crisp, Williams, Duursma, Hore (Scrimshaw, Burgess)
Mid: Cripps, Macrae, Oliver, M Crouch, Libba, Walsh, Constable, Ross (Atkins, Gibbons, Scott)
Ruc: Grundy, Gawn (ROB)
Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Moore, Drew, Parker (Petrol jelly, Bines)

I am looking at getting in Josh Kelly next week as a little POD, since i cant get fyfe in this week. Any thoughts would be great guys!


Chris Scott has guaranteed Clark will play this week saying he is a “certainty” to return

C. Damien 3 votes

Pleasing to know.


Is it totally crazy to move on from Constable at this point in time? Sure he had more money to make, but he has gone above $300k and it might be the best excuse for me to bolster my team either in Mids or up Fwd with him out, what do we reckon in general?


I’ve downgraded Constable to Hayes this week, as a Geelong supporter I can’t see Constable returning the managed was ok but now ommited another week later the signs are not looking good at all chance also to help your Bye structure with that trade too


Yeah cliffy looks like it’s time to move him on. Missed 2 games in 3 weeks.


Yeah Atkins can go soon after in the next fortnight to a Bewely maybe or Stocker or even Hatley if he gets his second game


Thanks guys 🙂


I'm holding constable. Think he will be back next week and is a certainty to get closer to a sideways swap to a fallen prem soon


Not crazy at all. Him being omitted just makes the decision even easier.


Trading for scrimshaw….Laird, Sicily, hurn or Stewart?


Sicily on his nice bye & output the last 3 weeks


30 trades left and $70k in the bank so thinking it’s time to make some trades

Lloyd, Laird, Crisp, Smith, Scrimshaw, Hore (Clark, Burgess)
Cripps, Fyfe, MCrouch, Coniglio, Brayshaw (Melb), Walsh, Constable, Duursma (Butters, Atkins, Scott)
Grundy, Gawn (Bines)
Danger, Heeney, Moore, Drew, Petruccelle, Parker (Setterfield, Balta)

Probably looking to go one up one down and bolster either the forward or backline.
Caleb Daniel, Kelly, Sicily, Stewart, Rich, Boak???


Well right now you're probably copping a donut, Clark is on extended bench might not play so get a defender


Can move Duursma or Moore back though to cover


Hi josh. I’d Trade scrimshaw swing duursma down back bring in Hayes and then probably move Parker on Get Tim kelly that forward line is far too weak atm. Hope that helps

Stupid Coach

Greetings Community. Currently have 24.trades left. Initially thought of trading Scott to Hayes and Constable to Fyfe but $70k short. Other option is Scott to Hayes and D Smith to T Kelly. Also, who would you have on the field for Whitfield – Joyce or Lockhart.

Any advice much appreciated as always.


Thoughts on bringing in Westhoff this week, with the hope that he returns to his form of last year, as a forward POD, already have Danger/Heeney/Boak and Kelly in my forward line too.

neil demons delight

Reckon that's a risky move but one that could pay off NDD


I think I prefer t Mac if your taking a forward line punt, westhoffs role has changed with lycett in
