The Fallen Premiums – Final Edition of 2016

Written by MJ on August 24 2016

Sadly, it’s the final week of the Fallen Premiums for SuperCoach Season 2016. It’s been another fantastic year scribbling my thoughts each week on our guns who were cheap for their expected output. Hopefully you’ve been able to snag a few nuggets along the way. Thanks for being a sensational audience which which to pen my ramblings. Reading your comments and the success stories that come from the odd selection really gets me up and about. A big hand goes out to all the other writers, statisticians and technical geniuses that make SCT happen: Motts, Thommo, Juddlow, Father Dougal, Nath and Chips Ahoy!

Also want to single out Schwarzwalder, who has put a MOUNTAIN of work into the site this year. We’ve all appreciated it mate. You deserve an Olympic Medal!

And to all you readers, thank you for dropping in and sharing the love of our great game with us. Without you, we simply wouldn’t exist.

Without any further ado, let’s get stuck into the final rendition of the Fallen Premiums, 2016…

As I like to do at the end of every season is highlight a few players who really lived and breathed the FP mantra in 2016.

I’ve run the magnifying glass over the field this year and identified those who have played considerably better in the second half of the season (R12-22) compared to the first half (R1-11) to find our best Fallen Premium.

The winner of the award for best Fallen Premium in 2016 goes to none other than: Tom Rockliff, with an increase of over 20 ppg in the second half of the year compared to the first. Playing just five games in the first 10 rounds due to two separate stints on the sidelines, Rocky was being traded out of teams all over the country, as if he was a toxic ingredient to a winning recipe. On his return to action in R11, he shocked us all with 204, then proceeded to average 117.2 after those with the gonads had a chance to trade him in prior to R12 for $500K. Thank you Tom!

Read on to run your eyes over the other candidates, who also make excellent selections for your final week of trades. Make that last one (or two) count and bring in a bloke who’s had a belter last ten games!

  2. 99, 101, 102, 123, 127, 122, 126, 118, 86, 106. Dane Swan’s SC averages for the last ten seasons – the ultimate Fallen Premium. Here’s to you Swanny, and don’t worry, we’ll leave you alone now….
    Thanks for another great year MJ. Like most, if I had any luck and/or brains I would have held on to Rocky from the start, but thems the breaks. Good luck to everyone in their GFs and enjoy your summer!

  3. I was looking at Cripps as my in for Rory Sloane. You’ve used Bontempeli’s stats for Cripps. I think he may run Rockliff pretty close.

    Sorry for being picky but you guys all do great work.

    1. Thanks Andrew, that means you’re paying attention! Fixed up now, despite the dodgy formatting job, but at least the stats are there. Cripps definitely puts his hand up for selecting from the get-go next year doesn’t he?!

  4. Phenomenal job again this year, MJ. Your posts and comments add so much to the site.

    And I second your thoughts on Schwarzwalder. Humungus workload that he took on at the beginning of the year and never missed a beat.

    I’m getting withdrawal symptoms already.
