Our resident numbers-man, Adam asked for a Bench Premiums/Loophole thread to thrash out some options for D7, M9 & F7.
For all the SC-Newbies out there………If things go well with team planning, injuries and trades then there is the possibility of trading in an extra Fallen Premium or Mid-Pricer on each line. They can either be used as bench cover or as part of an emergency loophole scheme. That works similar to the Captains Loophole, although you’ll need a non-playing option on each line for that to work.
Adam listed a few examples that could be handy as bench cover if you have the trades to spare in the coming weeks:
DEF– J Johannisen, L Montagna, S Burgoyne
MID– R Gray, J Steven, M Priddis
FWD– J Waite, B Acres, T Walker, I Smith, C Petracca
For what it’s worth, I’m bringing in Jake Lloyd this week (as most of you) with an eye to using him as my DEF/MID bench cover over the last ten weeks. I still have Greenwood (ADE) as F6 for the time being. Depending on my trade situation, he might even become my cover for F7/M9 if things get desperate.
As always we’d love to hear from you on this one. Have you factored in any emergency loopholes for the coming weeks? Any Mid-Pricers that you have your eye on?
