2019 SuperCoach AFL – Proven Premiums

Getting your premiums right can be the difference between SuperCoach glory and humiliation.

You’re paying a high price for players that should be delivering triple figures every single week, get it wrong and you’re on struggle street.

After huge years ruckmen Brodie Grundy and Max Gawn loom as two of the most expensive players on offer in 2019, along with Brownlow Medallist Tom Mitchell.

Looking at the past five years, the names Dangerfield, Gawn, Pendlebury and Oliver feature prominently.

These are the names who should be top of your shopping list coming into the new season.

Meanwhile, if you can find past top-10 scorers at discounted prices – we’re looking at you Sam Docherty – these players are simply must-haves.

While we restricted our search to players to have played a minimum of 18 games in a season, there is plenty of value in premiums that due to injury or misadventure had their seasons cut short.

Last year Nat Fyfe and Josh Kelly only played 15 games but averaged 113.9 and 113.8 respectively, which would have had them in the top-10.

The same goes for Adam Treloar (13 games, 109 ave) and James Sicily (14, 105).

We can’t predict injuries but we can take advantage of them in SuperCoach 2019.

  1. Boy its good to be back! It feels like its been so long, very excited for this new season!

    The first picked in each position for most people will be Docherty, Titch, Grundy and Danger, surely.


    1. I agree with you, but geez there’s a couple of close ones in it.

      Titch vs Cripps, and Cogs/Lloyd vs Doc, let alone the Gawn vs Grundy.

      Danger is a clear standout as F1


  2. I saw this article today and feel there are so many outtakes from the last six years, it might be statistically significant. I will send my ‘findings’ to Schwarz and leave it to the awesome SCT team to share as they see fit.
    There are so many contributors on this site which helped me go from 50,000th to top 2,000 in a year, that I’ve felt compelled to look at long-term trends rather than short-term analysis… I’m hoping it’ll prove useful for everyone.
    It might all be bollocks, but personally I can’t wait
