Supercoach Cheat sheet | Pre Round 11

Published by Statty Matty on

Good morning JR Community, great to be back thinking about SC again … who am I kidding? It never stops does it? So just one more week until the byes and hopefully you all have you plans worked out.

Every trade from now should be focused on where you want to be at the end of round 14. With a little luck you can push positions up the ranks, or just lock away 3 wins if you’re only playing in a cash league.

Remember, my suggestions aren’t definitive. A few of my “wait / watch” suggestions are probably best done with note to the player’s bye round (Brodie Smith for example could actually be held until his bye in Round 14). You just need to work out what’s best for your team structure.

A lot of experts are suggesting that you build a war chest of cash ready for your bye trades. I’m of the opinion that money not spent isn’t working for you, and while you don’t need to spend every cent, $300k in your bank which could upgrade a player now is definitely worth it.

Hopefully there’s no more carnage at the selection table this week. I did see earlier that Marty Hore is out injured, and personally I’m hopeful that Dylan Shiel gets up this week too.

Anyway, good luck every one,
Statty Matty.

Hold Williams and go ahead with my trade plans of dumping Petrucelle and leave myself 80k going into the byes or hold Pet and sideways trade Williams which leaves me with 280k?

TommyC99

I saw a photo of Hore with ice on his calf earlier in the week. Hoping its just precautionary and reporters have blown it out of proportion

Grinter

Looks to be a bit of a prank from the players. Hore seen smiling and laughing while Brayshaw wraps reams of cling wrap around his calf. Guess we'll know for sure tonight.

dontblushbaby

Yes, a prank imo

Danners

Nice work work MattyB! Struggling to figure out who to trade out this week with the byes just around the corner

My team currently is:
DEF: Hurn, Whitfield, Laird, Sicily, Hore, Clark (Young, Answerth)
MID: Neale, Oliver, Sloane, Cripps, Treloar, Danger, Stack, Duursma (Stocker, Gibbons, Hayes)
RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (O'Brien)
FWD: Kelly, Dunkley, Boak, Heeney, Parker, Young (Bines, Schultz)
18 trades, $146,600 in the bank

Wouldn't mind getting Hinge in and dumping Schultz, but just not sure what it is the best thing to do.
Thoughts community?

Derek

Might be time to cash in ROB

Derek

I was hoping ROB would be there for round 13 but it is looking like Jacobs will be back next week and stuff that up.

If you cash him in and via Bines, via Danger. Gets Danger back in forward line and $400k off your bench.

Angus

Rookie question here; but how many players should we aim to have playing each bye?

Lekdog

18

Brad Constable

Verdict on Jeremy Cameron?

TommyC99

I have been pretty vocal in my thoughts on him, but i like him a lot

TelescopicCox

I like him:
Round 14 Bye – Tick
Under priced – Tick
Consistency – Big worry

I think he's worth the plunge as he can get up the ground to boost his numbers

TommyC99

I dont think his consistency is that bad. His only 2 scores below 86 have been in 2 terrible Giants performances, and that 29 was also injury affected.

TelescopicCox

I didn't know that! I'm all over him this week. Most likely upgrading Petruccelle to him

Derek

Look at GWS last 4 weeks. Our SC finals.

Billy

Hey Community who should be a my main trade going into this week?

Trade 1: ZaC Williams and Setterfield out and Whitfield and Baker in

Trade 2: Miers and Clark out, Caleb Daniel and Hinge in ( Which would see me play answerth on field for williams)

Streaker

Depending on your bye situation, I'm gonna trade Miers out of my team, I think he will lose quite some cash this week. Z William's won't go down in value if not playing, I will hold him til next weeks decision too. All decisions relevant to byes and what your goal is rank or leagues. If leagues check your apponent side to see whether they have William's in as well.

Worpedo

Thought on trading

Zac WIlliams to Hinge,
Petruccelle to Boak and banking remaining cash for byes?

Thinking of doing this as defensive rooks on field much stronger than forward rooks

Lazza

Not a smart move IMO … Boak's BE is 123 .. a bit of a stretch given his 87 average over the last 3 weeks… he has a bye next week and will be cheaper after the bye. Wait two weeks. By all means dump Petrucelli, or Miers if you have him.

RealDealNeale

Feedback for this week? 17 trades left and 50k bank

Back – Whitfield, Hurn, Smith, Hore, Duursma, Moore (Williams* Answerth)
Mid – Neale, Oliver, Cripps, Bont, Rocky, B.Crouch, Brayshaw, Stocker (Setterfield, Scott, Hayes)
Ruck – Grundy, ROB (Bines)
Fwd – T.Kelly, Danger, Dunkley, De Goey, Marshall, Boak (Schultz, Young)

I'd like to get Lloyd in but I'd need to get rid of one of Moore or Williams along with Brayshaw to do it.

Big G

I am not sure why the cheat sheet included Baker when its obvious his j/s isn't the greatest?

Shane

Did you read the comment about Baker? He is suggesting to trade him out if you have him

Bg G

Oskar

Daz

I think his JS is solid after his last game, the tigs love their pressure fowards. I personally would hold until the byes, will ride him to around 400k after his 105 unless he drops a turd but his avg suggests otherwise.

ojs

talking about oskar baker daz

Shake_n_bake

Tempting ask me next week πŸ˜‰

Derek

He wouldn’t trade Neale for him. He must love Danger.

Shake_n_bake

I did trade Danger last week in classic league!

Taz

Does anyone know more about the Z Williams injury, is he likely to play next week or not?

TommyC99

They said they are optimistic. With his recent injury history i wouldn't be surprised if they just rest him till after the byes. I'm keeping him purely because Scrimshaw has to go first so i need to deal with him but if i was to put money on it i'd be backing they give him a rest

Derek

I’m the same. Can get to Whitfield by just trading out Scrimshaw.

Will hold Williams.

If didn’t have Scrimshaw I would have gone Williams to Whitfield.

Whitfield is a must have

TommyC99

Theo Doropoulos (twitter) – "Matt Crouch put through some strong contact/tackle work and moved well"
"Expecting Matt Crouch, Tom Lynch and David Mackay will come straight back in."

Finally some promising news for Crouch owners!

Swoopsta

Only way for me to get L.Whitfield in this week before his price skyrockets is by going slightly early on trading out D.Moore and J.Clark.
Do I swoop?

Derek

Is clark on field? Who would come on field if you trade him out

Swoopsta

Clark is on the bench. M.Hore will become my D6 which i'm ok with. will be a future luxury upgrade.

Choppers

I saw a video of Lever trying to prove his fitness for this round and Hore was running with him. Hore had what looked like a pressure bandage on his calf..

John

Cogs to Duncan is what I’m thinking but I just can’t convince myself to do it. I need advice please !!

Your Conscience

You'll regret not doing it

KSinny

Do it

Trades

Whitfield or Danger this week?

TheOne

Thank you as usual <img src=&quotcomment image" width="1"/>

Derek

JR SURVIVOR GROUPS

The following teams had immunity this week

Div 1 – The Nakia 3310s
Div 2 – dontblushbaby
Div 3 – Kick it to me @SCT
Div 4 – King Winter
Div 5 – Cramit

This now the pointy end of the season. When teams who are scoring 2235 are being eliminated, we are getting to the serious end.

This week had a few thrills and spills.

Crowmagnon piped PottersFC by 1 point in division 4, rough break especially when PottersFc was ranked inside the top 4k

As per the rules of the competition, the two lowest weekly scores from each division are eliminated each week, unless you have immunity.

This weeks Eliminated teams are:

Div 1 -EAGLE POWER & Dancing Dongas

Div 2 – Gonzo's Guns & Hall of Fame

Div 3 – Alaskan Firedragon & Macca's Magic

Div 4 – PottersFC & Gonzo's Guns

Div 5 – Jaeger O'Kneera & Rockesaurus

I have removed the above teams from the game.

This weeks top scorers all have immunity this week. This has secured them a place in the Champion of Champions league, well done fellas.

Div 1 – Shake n bake (2460)
Div 2 – Rise of the Worpel (2377)
Div 3 – Jaeger Bombs Pipes (2290)
Div 4 – Kezzam (2391)
Div 5 – Holt (2501)

Down to the last 6 (7 in two division) and only one week to go before we have out finalists

Champions League will start after the byes.

Good luck everyone

Darren

great competition Derek, my Punt Rd Paupers just hanging on in div 2 and think we will need min 2300 pts to survive this week

Wolfy

I don't know how I'm still kicking in Div 5 with the holes in my team haha

Derek

There have been a few sneaking through, this is probably the toughest week

33 teams left, 5 have immunity, leaving 28 who could go home, and 10 that will get eliminated, less than 1 in 3 chance.

Good luck

We don’t play during the byes, I’m not that mean.

Derek

Don’t know how Gonzo slipped into 2 divisions, and got this far without me noticing.

Shake_n_bake

Nice week off didn’t realise.

Derek

Start planning for round 15 now

Shake_n_bake

Got to get my head around the byes 1st Derek!

Holty01

Awesome work again Derek. I appreciate the work you do with this.

Derek

Bet365 have contacted me and want to run a market on the outcome.

Early markets have Holt a firm $2.50 fav.

Shake_n_bake

Not bad odds I’d thought you’d be lucky to get even money!

COREYSC

Parker to Hinge (dpp Burgess)
Setterfield to Fort
Are those two moves necessary? 22 Trades 10K in Bank

My Team
Lloyd, Whitifeld, Z.Williams, B.Smith, Hore, Clark (Answerth, Burgess)
J.Kelly, Neale, Fyfe, Macrae, Cripps, M.Crouch, B.Crouch, Walsh (Hayes, Stocker, Scott)
Grundy, Gawn (Bines)
T.Kelly, Dunkley, Dangerfield, Heeney, Parker, Setterfield (Corbett, Young)

Derek

What is your logic with getting Fort? He will be R3 and Bines at F7.

Ruck cover?

Cash cow?

COREYSC

cash cow was my thought I don’t have much cash generation at all

Wolfy

Rockliff ruled out.

Derek

He must have just wanted to do some duty free shopping

Derek

Does Holty have Rocky?

Shake_n_bake

What are you going to do with Rocky Neil?

Shake_n_bake

Love to have Cripps but fwds are pretty thin. With Rocky & Wines out my mids is stuffed aswell

Holty01

😱

Derek

mate, you must be loving Williams AND Crouch both out again.

For mere mortals like me it is another week of throwing around the magnets and seeing who is available

Derek

All pre season I was so set on a no injury risk policy

Somehow I ended up with Williams, Rocky and Crouch

Shake_n_bake

I went Crouch to Sloane last week. Could not bring myself to risk playing again with a rookie in that spot just so wished l did the trade in the 1st week Crouch was out but didn’t pull the trigger in time.

The unsullied

Like Taranto more than Parker on cheat sheet. Better five round average won't get tagged and better bye.

Lazza

Christmas will be here in 4 weeks … Grundy is coming to town … can't wait …

hedski

Start reversing trades everyone.
Hinge and Fort omitted.
Lockhart out injured.
Danger is back.
Still no Crouch <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="πŸ˜ͺ" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/1f62a.svg"&gt;
When Sundays teams are finalised tomorrow we could be in for more pain.

Ja191

so no defensive downgrade options?

hedski

Could go super early on Gardener????
(I won't be)

Trades

Darragh

Lazza

I just did a rookie bubble search on SC – Selected to Play' and 'Less than 3 games played' , result = Baker (MELB, MID, $123,900), Begley (ESS, FWD, 167,700) and Cumming (GWS, DEF, 173,300), Keefe (GWS, DEF, 190,500)

May change tomorrow night after the Sunday teams are announced with Joyce (STK, DEF, 123,900)

The crumbler...

Does anyone know how bad rockliff and Williams are? Really don't want to do 2 sideway-ish trades this week

Tommy

Rockliff named in team, so probably a late decision, doubt he misses more than 1. Williams should also be back next week

Holty01

I’m now very concerned about Rocky. Has next week off with the bye but travelling all tHat way and not getting up for this match will really effect his recovery. Big questions will be asked if he misses rd 13

Lazza

So Hinge has done a Hately .. he is out… JS a real issue moving fwd with the rookies.

Tommo09

I planned to trade down to Hinge this week but with him getting dropped should I go baker instead or do I take a huge risk and go for Gardner?

Tommy

I’m also looking at Gardner, if he’s rushed straight in then surely they rate him so should have JS, scoring potential could be a worry though

Creed Bratton

Yeah I'm going to take the punt, even if Gardner doesn't work out the DPP is useful

s c tragic

Who is the favoured replacement for Scrimshaw Houli , whitfield or LLoyd? still have Williams cooling his heels also Hurn Duursma and the cheap Hore.

redherringfc

whitfield

TelescopicCox

Walsh to Rocky 2 weeks ago. I’m ready to quit on this season

Who goes first to avoid a donut – Crouch or Rocky

Ja191

I’d prob say crouch but I’d be holding both. Look at crouches numbers post bye for the last few years

Tony

Rocky

Lazza

Crouch will be back next week …Rocky will be back too, but who knows what score or for how long … if you have to bounce one, I'd say Rocky.

Lekdog

We are live and preparing for the byes! Come chat #supercoach trades at http://twitch.tv/lekdoggames now! To all the subscribers, make sure you jump in & spam Daniel Rich emotes!

Fearthebeard

Think I have to go baker now.

Will look at hinge and Bewley next week to bank and lastly Gardner.

We have to learn on going early no?

ojs

should i trade or hold angus brayshaw at this point when i have the likes of drew stack and ross that need trading out

Hazey

Yeah, I'm stuffed if I know what to do with him. I'm leaving towards trying to hold him until he is my last upgrade to Uber…. With the faint hope they get him back in the guts where he was when they were killing it last year!

Trades

Gees. Brought in Simpson last week. He usually comes back with a mammoth score but not this time. Now he’s done.

Derek

no one would have bought in Simpson last week

Trades

Simpson, Williams,Scrimshaw, Rocky, Crouch, Lockhart all not playing. Gees….

TommyC99

Was Planning on painting the fence this week, Scrimshaw down and Pet up. doesn't look like any real downgrade options. Do i punt on a risky bubble boy (i.e baker) and go with my painting the fence Or sideways trade one of Williams – Sicily or Crouch – Bont/Merrett?

Daniel

Which set of trades is the better option this week?

OPTION 1: Lockhart to Gardner + Drew to J. Cameron

OPTION 2: Drew to Oskar Baker + Lockhart to Sicily

Dr sc

2

James Sykes

Thanks Hinge….good job…..forced me to roll with oskar (who even spells it that way????).

Which means if Lachlan Young doesnt come up I have to bring in Lllllooooyyydddd…..rather than my much preferred Constable to Josh Kelly!

rocking 8 outs at this stage.

hedski

Hinge out throws a big spanner in the works James.
My young fellas name is spelt Oska <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="πŸ˜‰" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/1f609.svg"&gt;

James Sykes

πŸ™‚ Classic…….thats awesome….good on ya mate…….only did it for the jokes fella, no offense.

hedski

Ha ha, none taken at all mate just thought it was funny too, his middle name is actually James!
I'm stumped on who to bring in now, need to make a move to get Whitfield πŸ‘

James Sykes

well constable/stack to oskar might give you enough for lockhart to whitfield if you have that structure and a little cash lying around.

Steeeve

I've brought in lloyd instead of Kelly now too. Dsmn round 13 bye…

Dash

150K – 20 Trades Seeking your trade thoughts which may suit my byes.

Laird, Sicily, Whitfield, Duursma, Clark, Answerth, (Burgess, Marsh)
Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Gibbons, Atkins, (Hayes, Scott, Setterfield)
Gawn, Grundy, (Bines)
Heeney, Boak, T Kelly, Dunkley, Danger, Balta (Parker, Corbett)

AuroraBorealis?!

Thinking i might just have to cop the donut of Rocky at this stage, it's just not worth trading in a rookie with speculative JS.

James Sykes

I think from here everyone is questionable with JS otherwise they probably would have played day one. There is always exceptiosn but it just proves the rule. that is why we wind up with crap benches year end and the premo injuries with no trades hurts so much come finals.

Lazza

I can field 22, but my trade strategy for the byes is rooted if I don’t bring in Bewley.. problem is I need to replace his trade with another for R13.

Jeffrey

I need to downgrade but can’t decide between O. Baker and Begley. Any thoughts?

JugHead

I think the supercoach gods are taking the pi55……….anything I do to fix my team this week will roger me for the byes……

KSinny

Hey community would really appreciate some advice on my team. I've got 18 trades and $139k in the bank. Thinking of going Gibbons to Bewly and Williams to Kelly/Merrett? Any suggestions would be helpful.

DEF: Sicily, Williams, Smith, Whitfield, Answerth, Hore (Burgess, Lockhart)

MID: Macrae, Cripps, Gaff, Sloane, M. Crouch, Fyfe, Walsh, Duursma
(Hayes, Scott, Gibbons)

RUC: Gawn, Grundy (Bines)

FWD: Danger, Heeney, Kelly, Boak, Marshell, Petruccelle (Balta, Young)

Daniel

I'd go ahead with Gibbons down to Bewley, but for the other trade I reckon hold williams, i'm holding him and m.crouch myself, you've already held both for this long and in the meantime you can trade lockhart to either laird or t.stewart this week, both look top 10 defenders this year and are great value

James

21 trades and $42k. Currently thinking of holding as there aren’t many rookies to trade down to. But considering trading Cogs up to another premium due to his injury and Kelly being back.

Def: Laird, Williams, Whitfield, Wilkie, Duursma, Hore EMG: Answerth, Clark

Mid: Cripps, Treloar, Fyfe, Cogs, Macrae, B. Crouch, Stack, Stocker EMG: setterfield, Sparrow, Hayes

Ruck: Grundy, Gawn EMG: Sweet

Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Boak, Kelly, Corbett EMG: Young, Schultz

Do I hold it trade in someone like Baker, Joyce (if selected) or Bewley and trade Cogs to Neale or Duncan ?

Joe T

Best option out of Stewart, Ryan and Houli? Only considering point scoring and injury risk, not worried about bye structure.

Hazey

Stewart

Joe T

Cheers Hazey, was leaning that way but Ryan's and Houli's high scores were making me reconsider

Lazza

If looking at durability Stewart… otherwise Houli then Ryan then Stewart.

Stupid Coach

I have 18 trades and 18k in the bank. Have 22 on the field with Danger back and Answerth covering Williams. At this stage I have at least 20 players playing during the bye rounds. I was thinking Sweet to Fort but he has been dropped. Lockhart is the only other player not playing and he is on the bench with Stocker and Scott. I could trade Lockhart to Baker (Melb) to generate cash and do an upgrade next week or just hold this week. Appreciate any advice. Team is:
B: Laird, Whitfield, Stewart, Williams, Dursma, Wilkie, Answerth, Joyce.
M: Crisps, Oliver, Merrett, Coniglio, Macrae, Sloane, Walsh, Stack, Lockhart, Scott, Stocker
R: Gawn, Goldy, Sweet
F: Danger, Kelly, Heeney, Rozee, Petrucelle, Parker, Young, Settlefield

TOPHAWK1

Hi Neil. The Hore injury does not exist. Are you confident in Oskar Baker mate? How is is JS? You rate him as a player? Seriously considering trading him in this week. Cheers. TH

John

Is Caleb Daniel a top 6 forward?

Big G

Close or round about. Confident he will average 90 from here on at least.

Derek

if Suckling keeps playing in the central defence role, Daniel will average 80-90

look at his scores from round 8 when Suckers came back into team.

Tommy

Suckling played forward last week hence Daniel scored better, not too sure how long that will last

Dean

I want Houli. To do so I will bring Baker in and offload either Coniglio or Brodie Smith (via DPP etc).

Who should I offload out of those 2, Coniglio or Smith? Will Cogs come good?

Justin

Is there anyone else you can downgrade?

Derek

Cogs will come good, but only once his finger stops hurting. If he keeps playing it wont get better.

Might have to do what Daniel Chick did.

Tommy

Houli should score well for another 5 weeks, but as soon as short comes back his scores will drop off.

Justin

Backing in Houli, top 6 defender at seasons end. And hoping Cogs will return to form. Who should I downgrade, Lockhart, Hayes, Petrucelle or Setterfield

Dean

Okay, I think Im gonna back Houli in and go Smith to Houli. Should I trade Lockhart, Petrucelle, Setterfield or Hayes?

SJ34

Looking to trade out scrimshaw and drew this week but to bring in who? Thoughts on Taranto or Houli? Or another option?

Lloyd, Whitfield, Sicily, Smith, Hore, Scrimshaw, (Clark, Answerth)

Cripps, Mcrae, Fyfe, Kelly, O’Meara, Rockliff, B Crouch, Walsh, (gibbons, setterfield, Hayes)

Gawn, Mumford, fort

Boak, danger, Kelly, Greene, Balta, drew, (Young, Corbett)

Derek

without Rocky, Drew must be a chance to get picked.

Big G

Community just confirming we will know the final teams for Sunday by 6:10 tonight – sweating on whether that Robbie Young fellow will play.

TommyC99

5:10 mate, but i really dont like his chances

hedski

Acres has gone down sick, may still play but if he doesn't hopefully Young holds his spot

Big G

He is in. Ha, but I can bench him with Setterfield in.

hedski

Firmly on my bench and not moving near the field BigG.
It comes down to Parker or Petrol on field for me.
