Howdy all! – IT’S CULLING SEASON!! … or is it?? Too soon to lose some of those rookies, or are you keen to chase premos already?
Either way, planning for the byes is essential and to enable your deliberations, the latest version of the bye planner is provided.
Two versions of the planner are supplied. Choose your “Gun Qualifier” based on Price (eg to be counted as a Gun defender, your value is over $450K) or on Average (defender = 90+) and so on … it’s up to you which one you choose!!
Qualifiers currently set to:
Def = $450,000 or 90+
Mid = $520,000 or 105+
Ruc = $480,000 or 95+
Fwd = $450,000 or 90+
Make sure you nominate any players in your squad that you do not believe will play in any rounds, including the byes, to get a more accurate total of available numbers (think Bines!). – SEE COLUMN I ON THE “PLANNER TAB”
For ROUND 7 only (this week) – (cash calculator on PLANNER TAB)
You should begin by loading your current team at the end of round 6, before any trades, in Column B of PLANNER TAB
in cell J46 enter your CURRENT team value (should be same as value showing in cell J44)
in cell J47 enter your available cash in the bank
Go Back and make your planned trades of players in COLUMN B
Check cell J49 to determine if you have sufficient cash to make those trades – POP UP MESSAGES WILL APPEAR AND THE CELL IN J49 WILL CHANGE COLOUR IF GOOD OR BAD
If you’ve been around the site for the last few years, you should all be familiar by now with the planner – the key tabs are the “PLANNER” AND “PLAYER DATA” tabs. These let you plan your team / trades (Planner) and provide some extra info on player performances across the current and last few years.
I’ve also added extra tabs this year for your ease of researching: note that tabs are now included listing all players in each position (D, M, R and F) and also all rookies listed on their own tab – filters included on each tab.
Load your current team at the end of round 6 in each position in each of the cells in Column B (choose from the drop-down list in each cell, by alpha order on surname)
Check columns J-O for the key stats at end of round 6.
Make sure you load your current team value and available cash in cells J46 and J47
Now go back to column B and choose which players you want to trade out and in
Check cell J49 to make sure you can afford the trades
For the Bye Impacts:
check your possible players (Columns Q to U & rows 12, 25,30 & 40) and “Guns” (rows 13, 26, 31 & 41) for each of the bye rounds
Check total possible numbers in rows 42 and 43 and watch for the cells colour change depending on numbers!
Check also the warning box in rows 50-54, Columns R-U – this lets you know to be careful with your bye numbers in total – you can’t say you have 18 in a round if 10 are in the Mids – only 8 can play!
PLAYER DATA TAB
Round 6 data now included (columns R-W) and you want negative BE’s & Total points / averages! – is your player improving?
Rookies are shaded in yellow.
DON’T DELETE OR ALTER ANY OF THE DATA ON ANY OF THE TABS AS IT IS USED TO MAKE THE WHOLE FILE WORK!!
So, get to it! Leave a comment on the thread as well for any thoughts or ideas and discussions – we love those! I haven’t had a chance to alter the formulae to allow you to select your own values for determining guns – before the byes hopefully!
HINT – use the planner to make all your team changes BEFORE playing on the actual SC site!! Saves inadvertent locking in your changes when not ready once round has commenced and the last-minute players not listed!! Trades are gold remember!
The bye planner will continue to work each week showing how many players you have available over each of the bye rounds, though averages and player values etc will only be updated when I get a chance to upload current data.
Happy Bye Planning all and good luck for the rest of the year!!
