The Flavour returns in 2018, bringing you a succinct and forthright review of the Supercoach trade trends each week, and hopefully helping you out with those tough choices as the season develops.
Only two days (TWO DAYS!!!) from the opening bounce, naturally we have no trade data to speak of. However, what we do have is the Coaches Choice – who are the most popular picks, those dubbed “must-haves” by the wider SC community?
|Player||Club||Position||Price ($)||Ownership (%)|
A few observations:
- With Petracca the only “mid-priced” option in the top 20, it’s pretty clear that Guns ‘n’ Rookies is still very much the strategy of choice for the majority of Supercoaches.
- Comparing this list with the one posted on this site in January (via the Herald Sun), we see that several popular early-season rookies have fallen by the wayside, with the likes of Garlett, O’Shea, Higgins and Ahern disappearing from the list.
- Coaches are generally loathe to take chances with injury-clouded players, e.g Naitanui and Birchall. Even the mighty Dangerfield has seen his ownership drop by over 10% in the past week.
- And if you haven’t got Gawn and/or Fyfe, you’re in the minority!
And at the other end of the popularity stakes, the Premium Points of Difference (>$500K, <5% ownership):

Do you dare take on any of these decidedly uncool kids?
The Flavour will return next Tuesday, to look at the fallout from all the Round 1 action….enjoy the footy everyone!
