Pete asked us to define ‘Premium’ in the Polling Station earlier in the week. While it’s a little tricky to organise a poll for that, I thought we could open it up to the SCT Coaches in the Forum.
Going on current statistics, I’d define Premium as the following:
DEFENDERS – Currently four backmen averaging over 100+pts per game (Docherty, Laird, Adams, Roberton) so that seems to be the benchmark. There are also five defenders averaging 95+ so you’d want your D5/D6 around that mark if possible. OR you’d be looking for a Fallen Premium that (in your opinion) will average 95+ for the remainder of the season.
MIDFIELD – Dangerfield is ELITE and is simply a must-have in every team. Apart from Danger, an average of 110+ seems to be the benchmark for the midfielders. There are currently 14 MIDs averaging over 110+ with a further six that are averaging 105+. Any of those choices should keep you competitive. Unless you see another Fallen Premium that you can see blitzing it from here on in………..
RUCK – Only two spots but is one of the trickiest lines to fill this year. We have three Ruckmen averaging over 100+ pts (Kreuzer, Mumford & S.Martin) yet the top two have largely been avoided due to their injury history. If you took the chance on Kreuzer & Mumford then you’d be laughing right now. For the rest of us, any Ruckmen averaging over 95+ probably won’t lose us too many games in the run home. Will be interesting to see how Max Gawn performs upon his return………
FORWARD – With only three players averaging over 100+ (Yeo, Heeney, Macrae), that has become the target for any new forward coming into our sides. Hopefully you can snag another one or two that has a big run home over the next ten weeks.
How did I do? Do you agree/disagree with my definition of ‘Premium’ on each line? I went with pts ahead of price since overall price doesn’t win any games 😉
