SuperCoach Gold 2018 Team Picker

Written by Huttabito on December 7 2017

Who doesn’t love to start planning early?

I personally think it’s never to early, so a quick team I threw together with my morning coffee:

I’m quite liking the stacked midfield again this season. Who are you eyeing off this early?

Don’t have access to SuperCoach Gold? Don’t worry, we at SuperCoachTalk believe no-one should be left out so we have you covered. You will be able to download an excel version of the Team Picker here: 2018 SuperCoach Team Planner.

It should be pretty self explanatory, select the player in each position from the drop down selection until you have all 30 players –ย  the price for your player will be automatically filled upon your selection.

Please note thatย all players in each position are listed in descending price order and all prices are tentative and subject to change. We will do our best to keep it up to date and make improvements as the season gets closer.

Knock yourself out and let us know in the comments below what you can conjure up.

    1. I believe it’s only for 2017 subscribers only and unfortunately it’s too late to sign up. If I can find an easy way to export all the players, prices and positions I’ll throw it into an excel template.

  2. Yeeeessss!!!

    Version 1 of 3587:

    DEF: Yeo, Laird, Mills, O’Shea, Coffield, Keeffe (Murray, Doedee)
    MID: Danger, Zorko, Crouch, Fyfe, Cripps, Hanners, Brayshaw (Freo), LDU (Polson, Ahern, Worpel)
    RUC: Gawn, NicNat (Jones)
    FWD: Heeney, Gray, C Curnow, C Rioli, Fogarty, Higgins (Venables, Garlett)

    Confident on 12 keepers.

    Take a chance on Mills moving into the midfield, Rioli getting close to a full season, and Charlie Curnow breaking out as a versatile mid/fwd.

    Plenty of pricy rookies on that list that I should be able to squeeze a few quid pending round 1 selection.

    Alternative (slightly risky) option floating around the back of my head is Coffield and Hanners to Angus Brayshaw and O’Meara…

    FWD: I. Heeney, J. Billings, C. Curnow, C. Rioli, J. Higgins, W. Rioli (D. Venables, Jarrod Garlett)

  4. Hey Hutta, would you be able to research for me Dayne Zorko’s average without Tom Rockliff in the side? I believe Zorko will once again be a POD but a bit worried that he will be tagged more often and havr lower scores like his 55 last year (by memory, following a big 160-170). Cheers

    1. It works just fine Matteo. Just click inside the box on the right handside of the select player box to get the arrow for the player drop down list just outside that box.
      Then click on the arrow and , just scroll down to go threw the players then just click on the player you want and he will then appear in the box as your selected player. Anyway , i think that is how it worked when i set up a Team last night , but i have 2 years experience from using this format with Dead Team selections.
      Just have a play around and you will work it out easy enough.
      Great Job Hutta!

  5. Version 4 already, this stuff’s worse than crack cocaine.

    DEF: Yeo, Hibberd, Williams, Brayshaw, Richards, Murray (Keeffe, Doedee)
    MID: Danger, Zorko, Crouch, Fyfe, Cripps, Coniglio, LDU, H. Clark (Kelly, Moore, Worpel)
    RUC: Gawn, NicNat (Balta)
    FWD: Heeney, Dahl, Curnow, Bennell, Higgins, Ahern (Venables, Garlett)

    Feels better now. Strengthened the back line by downgrading Hanners and Rioli to Coniglio and Bennell, which on face value seems similar on risk/reward and scoring potential.

    My head tells me I should have more rookies from NM…but I just can’t for the life of me find anyone besides LDU and Ahern that excite me at all.

  6. Aaand we’re back!

    I accessed SuperCoach Gold through a program called News Connect this year, where I was given access in exchange for filling out surveys, instead of paying money. Does anyone know if I count as a SuperCoach Gold subscriber for the purposes of this?

    Either way, there’s still the Excel version, so in any event it’s not like I’ll be missing out on much, but I just thought I’d ask anyway.

    1. Log in and give it a go – you might get lucky.

      I signed up for SC Gold 4 years ago on a free 3-month trial and it’s been running ever since ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Apart from your rookie players my team literally has almost all of your premiums and mid pricers. I don’t have Yeo, Titch or Setterfield and I have hanners, Curnow and Lobb. That is crazy.

      1. I did. Personally, I think there’s far too much choice in all of this, and, more importantly, far too much inequality. Far too many are left languishing at the bottom of the ladder, while those at the top get all the glory and prize money. Why should somebody’s ranking suffer just because they chose Shaun Higgins over Dangerfield? It is quite simply unjust.

        In the interest of fairness and equality, under my government we will nationalise SuperCoach.

              1. Lobb has the highest hit out to advantage rate and centre clearance getter of any of the top 125 ruck attendees, he is their no. 1 ruckman next year and scored 108 and 129 in the two finals as their no.1 ruckman. Curnow averaged 92 from rounds 14-23 and Hanners has 2 previous years of going 114 and 113 and had hip issues for a period of this year, so I’m gambling on a fallen premium. Not sure how any of those can’t be seen as reasonable picks.

                    1. Yeah it’s safer to go a guns and rookies strategy but this frees up my money to get one more expensive rookie outside of Uniacke who I’m very confident will score well and it hopefully means I have to trade up one less player. My experience tells me that going all 123k rookies means more dropped players, bad scoring and inevitably the use of more trades. I misinterpreted that people down voted me because my team was too similar to Huttabitto’s, not really fussed if you disagree with those picks, although they have been well thought out.

                    2. I would not worry about dislikes too much as they don’t mean much as everybody has different opinions.
                      You got yourself a few more dislikes by showing your disapproval of getting them as that is just how it works on the site.

                      Good you are doing your homework early and Good Luck for the year!

                    3. Don’t care about dislikes, just flippantly responded because I thought it was because my team was similar, which I thought was stupid

              2. Curnow has already broken out: this year, he averaged 93 from round 14 onwards. His scoring in the first half of the season has kept his price relatively low.

                All he has to do is continue that form into next year and he’ll be a top forward. Throw in another pre-season, and the prospect of extra midfield time, and who knows what could happen?

                1. Jack IMO an 8 game good average is not a breakout year , but is still in the brreakout contender category as Supercoach is played over the whole Home and Away season.
                  Don’t get me wrong Curnow might average 95 – 100ppg next year.

                2. I wouldn’t say he’s broken out until he plays that way for a full year but that he’s certainly had a mini break-out. He’s definitely worth the gamble because he’s priced 18 points cheaper than what he scored in those final 10 games. There is a solid chance of more midfield time but Carlton’s lack of forwards might keep him at half-forward (where he had those great scores). One scout said in 2015 that he had the highest ceiling of any player in that draft.

                    1. I’ll admit he’s one of the most questionable players in my team, as is Hanners, but if I replace them it will be with a Petracca in the forward line, or with a Parker in the midfield. I think all of these are good picks.

  8. Your M1 to M6 is lineup identical to mine. The first four being the best midfielders of 2017, and the last two (Fyfe and Cripps) being good value after injury-affected seasons.

    1. Sandilands is likely not to hold up for the season so Darcy might have a slow start. If Sandilands does go then Darcy will score big again

  16. Keep an eye on Mitch Robinson’s role during the pre-season. He’s a $406K forward, and the Lions are going to need to replace Rockliff’s presence in the midfield.

  17. Some stats on rookie availability across different positions:

    (Position, Number of rookies, % of positional cohort):

    Less than $130K:

    DEF, 64, 23 %
    MID, 60, 22 %
    RUC, 26, 37 %
    FWD, 79, 24 %

    Less than $160K:

  19. If we ignore DPPs for a moment, and if we assume that real-life selections mirror the structure of SuperCoach (6-8-2-6), we can deduce the following about the number of players in each position who will play in a given week:

    (Position, Playing players/Total Players, Percentage of positional cohort)

    DEF, 108/277, 39 %
    MID, 144/279, 52 %
    RUC, 36/70, 51 %
    FWD, 108/323, 33 %

    If they go for a 6-9-1-6 structure instead, this changes to:

    DEF, 108/277, 39 %
    MID, 162/279, 58 %
    RUC, 18/70, 26 %
    FWD, 108/323, 33 %
