The Ranger

Wow! You’d be chuffed if you had Kelly, NicNat and Gaff.
Is there anyone out there that has all three AND Barass?!!

gator59

Great just F%^&*(G great

gator59

Thanks for that sad news Ranger

The Ranger

You playing someone that has them Gator?

Juzz

I am…and he has Steele as well…599 points with 4 players. I’m doomed

The Ranger

Sometimes its a cruel, cruel game Juzz…

jel

Looks like 6 teams in the top 5000 have all 3, none of them have Barass as well.

Just looking to next year…The dual Brownlow medallist had played 33 per cent of game time in attack prior to Round 16 — when he spent about 42 per cent of time in the forward half.
Fyfe being made available as a FWD-MID in 2021 would provide significant relief for SuperCoaches with many popular selections set to lose dual-position eligibility.

Nat Fyfe could be listed as a FWD-MID in SuperCoach next season.

Brodie Smith is tipped to gain DEF-MID status in 2021.

North Melbourne breakout star Jy Simpkin (45,000 teams, FWD-MID) is likely to be listed as a MID only after becoming a key cog of the Roos’ engine room in the absence of Ben Cunnington.
Western Bulldogs young gun Bailey Smith is almost certain to lose his forward status and join Simpkin as MID only after averaging 91.6 points to Round 16.
Two other top forwards of 2020 — Andrew Brayshaw and Hugh Greenwood — are also likely to be MID only, limiting the dual-position prospects.
In a boost, Josh Dunkley is in line to regain FWD-MID status and Collingwood’s Steele Sidebottom is also projected to be dual-position.
Despite spending long periods in attack as Geelong has managed players through a gruelling season, Patrick Dangerfield is tipped to remain MID only next year.
Lachie Whitfield is likely to have one of the biggest positional shifts and could lose both FWD and MID status to become a defender.

Lekdog

Inject Fyfe as a forward into my veins

David

Dunkley to be Mid/Fwd/Ruck

Russty_

And Orange-boy to boot 😉

Russty_

Cheers Col thanks for the info, hoping we can get back to normal format next season.

holty01

Oh no, Cogs has been dropped. Not good for owners

DEESNUTSRBIG

SMH Cogs may as well be the nail in the coffin, still waiting on Simpkin, Williams, Docherty and Martin with only 2 trades left for the year. Already traded Kelly and Brayshaw last week as well.

The Ranger

Williams and Simpkin are both playing

Derek

Finally, Cogs to Dunkley.

Lekdog

Ruining my Draft league

Jamss

Have two trades Left and I’m using them to try get the win in leagues this week. Which duo would you guys go for;
Draper and Neale
English and duncan

Lekdog

English and Duncan for me

Glenn

Hi Jamss. You have to get Neale in!! Go for De Koning instead of Drapper for the extra cash if you need it. Good luck

Ralph_07

Was gonna YOLO on Ryan at F6 for Wicks (via Close DPP) but didn’t have the guts, now considering Charlie Cameron instead, gotta risk it for the biscuit I guess (in this case the biscuit in question is bragging rights lol).

Lekdog

Like it!

Joe_T

Best option to replace Cogs? Only worried about h2h, must win game this week.

Options are Shiel, Setterfield, Sloane, Parker. Or others similarly priced.

Lekdog

Parker from that crew

Glenn

Hi Joe T. I’d go Setterfield from that list and add Viney and Higgins. Good Luck

FearTheBeard

L Ryan & R Gray in for Doch & Cogs (DO WE KNOW IF DOCH IS OUT LOL)

If he isn’t I can keep Doch and upgrade my last rookie Riccardi to Gray 😀

Glenn

Hi FeartheBeard. You definitely need to trade Cogs. If you like the look of Rgray get him in. You don’t want to have $$$ sitting on your bench. Trade up on Riccardi as much as you can. Good luck

FearTheBeard

Is there anyword on Doch?

Glenn

Check the afl app or website for the latest news

Russty_

No word so far…I read that it’s a “low grade Calf strain”

holty01

🤔 Lyons or Duckley? Lyons has been consistent all year but Dunkley looked fantastic last week.

Glenn

Hi Holty01. I think Lyons is a better option. His role does change as much as Dunkleys. Good luck

Russty_

Duckley for sure Quack quack! 😉

Shane

whats the best option for my 2 trades this week?

Option 1.
wicks -> Neale
w.day (rookie av.71) -> premium e.g. laird/Ryan

Options 2.
wicks -> Neale
Grundy -> Gawn (opponent has gawn)

Glenn

Hi Shane. Always trade up as much as possible. Definitely option 1. Good luck

Matty

Any word on Doch? Unfortunately my trades may be dependent on whether he plays (got no bench cover down back with Keane and Williams). But also need to trade Brayshaw.
Was hoping to cash in Draper this week and upgrade to full premo but now I’ve got a shiet load more to deal with first.
So now I’m not sure whether to just hope Doch plays and cash in Draper + Upgrade Brayshaw to Crouch.
Or wait to see if Doch plays but then there goes my chance to upgrade Brayshaw this week…
Also have Simpkin and Martin still but at least I should have cover if one doesnt play…
Bit stuck, so any insight would be very much appreciated here!

Glenn

Hi Matty. You need to cover your best players first. If you have a bench player to cover brayshaw bring him on. Brayshaw to emergency. Cash in on Draper. Save your last trade till you know if Doc plays. If he does trade up another player. Look ahead to see who you can bring in. Always trade up!
Good Luck. Hope that helps

Glenn

Hi again Matty. Didn’t realise Brayshaw season over. Don’t make him emergency. Trade next week if you make it.

Matty

Hey Glenn,

Does help, thanks heaps for the reply.
I’ve cashed in on Draper so have about 250k in the bank.
Although now that Riccardi has been managed that presents another problem. Was hoping to have him as my F6 for one more round, I’ve got Mosquito and fullarton on my bench in forward so no cover. I’ve got Coleman and Schoenberg in my midfield as bench cover for Brayshaw this week but no way to swing on into my forward bench without a trade. So now I just have to hope to god that doc plays.
I’m thinking my options are
A) upgrade riccardi to a fwd premo (have 509k)
B) trade riccardi, swing Coleman into my fwd line and bring in a mid for the same price (then I’m left with brayshaw on my bench to deal with next week)

In saying all this I still need doc and Simpkin to both play to dodge a donut! Could be in some serious strife…

Anyone have any ideas or think one idea is better than the other? Would love any input.

Glenn

Hi Matty. Is it Zac Williams on your bench down back? He is playing. If so you just need to cover Brayshaw. Trade Riccardi to a primo mid/forward (ie Robbie Gray or such) and swing with Coleman. Just my opinion. Good luck

Glenn

Hi guys. My first time on this forum. To say I’m disappointed with supercoach would be an understatement!
The rules need to change to bring fairness back to the competition. Supercoach finals should not be played during bye rounds. Full stop. But if there is definitely no other option, bye round players should not forced into being traded. Their projected or average scores should count. It takes a whole season to build a great supercoach team, yet we have no other choice but to deconstruct our teams to make it through. This puts supercoaches at a distinct disadvantage when facing their next opponent who have avoided the bye. But we have 3 trades I hear you say. Ok, but is that enough? Say you have 3 bye round players in your best 22. You think you’ve got them covered but suddenly one or possibly two of your other players are rested! You now need 5 trades just to have a full team. Unfair I say…TOTALLY. I pity all the Supercoaches that were painfully forced to trade Brody Grundy and brought in NicNat! OUCH. 100+ points lost.
Any supercoaches feeling let down? Would love to hear your thoughts. Please comment.

David

Everybody gets the same deal Glenn can’t get much fairer than that.
The real issue is the total inconsistency with which scores are awarded. Player X can score 30pts for a mark and goal in the 2nd quarter while player Y only gets 12pts for a mark and goal in the 2nd quarter or player Z can produce 4 smothers to stop goals and score nothing while player A can handball over his head to the opposition and score 8pts.

Glenn

Hi David. I agree but it’s the wrong deal. Those already through aren’t penalised. Yeah, the scoring is inconsistent and unfair. Thanks for your reply

Russty_

Hi Glenn, It’s been a tough year for everyone this season, and we’re very lucky I think, that there even was a supercoach season at all…and an afl season.
It wasn’t ideal circumstances for all, I personally couldn’t keep up with the amount of games, and changes etc..that’s ok though cause I’m appreciative that it even happened.
Remember after round 1, it got canned for 6 weeks or so..until round 2 started again?
My advice is…don’t take this season too seriously, treat it like a dress rehearsal for next season in the hope where next season is a relatively ‘normal’ season.
I don’t feel let down at all, I feel grateful that there was even an opportunity to play at all this year amid a global pandemic…I’ve been playing SC since 2007 and even though this year turned out shit for me, at least it happened, and I’m happy about that.
I do agree with you about the total amount of trades though…although you didn’t mention that, but the run N gun rules shafted some people, but I believe SC were just trying to do the best they could in a fkd situation mate…can’t really blame em for that, cause the comp still survived.
I think we had 37 trades this year and I still ran out LOL.
Peace out!

JohnDJ59

Well said Russty.

POTS

Even though he is named, I have doubts in Simpkin’s scoring this week. Thinking Simpkin to Greenwood leaving Close as F6 for this week with Riccardi now omitted.
Next week – Rivers/Close to rookie, Riccardi back to Simpkin around $400K
Will only have $360K for a FWD if I trade Riccardi this week.

Russty_

I wouldn’t go ‘back’ to Simpkin, once you got rid of Simpkin.
This time of year is the time to jump on anyone who is in some temporary hot form if you have a limited budget.

A Brayshaw or R Gray lads?

Matt

Thoughts on Robbie Gray or Jack Viney? Got 510k to upgrade Riccardi to either an M8 or F6. Any opinions welcome!

Russty_

Gray is good.
