So the format will be by line and by popularity from your votes last week. Now that the spreadsheets are set up it shouldn’t take too long to update. Especially if we have two months between each Round! If you want a particular player added, then please let me know. I will warn you if I am considering culling any and you can express your concerns in the comments.
Please also note that these BEs are (in some cases ‘very’) different from what the SuperCoach App or site are saying. This is because they stated prior to the season that BEs would be based on players scoring their PTA scores prior to their Rd1 actual score, but they have now based the 3RdAve. on their Rd1 score only. Whilst it hasn’t been confirmed, I am almost certain that this is a glitch in their system as it would lead to astronomic price changes at the end of Rd2. Both positive and negative. I am sure that they will amend the error soon in their system, or they will simply have to give everyone unlimited trades before Rd2 as this is effectively a massive change in their stated ‘Rules of the Game’ which in turn had serious implications on what strategies SuperCoaches would have adopted prior to Rd1.
Enough about that, let’s get into it.
DOCHERTY looked superb. Get him in if you haven’t already. I didn’t get to see Friday night’s game, but it seems HOWE continued his impressive pre-season form; great call Ben@SCT. ROBERTON played a lockdown role for the Saints. Ouch and it is Ben LONG who looks like he’s going to get all those points off STK’s half-back! Brodie SMITH missed an entire quarter but also appeared to be playing half-forward rather than on a wing … yuck! My Jayden SHORT pick now doesn’t look so good with such a long delay now; Bachar HOULI will likely be back for Rd2 🙁
The rest? Meh.
Don’t pick mid-priced MIDs! Though Andrew McGRATH looked excellent, I fear for his role once HEPPELL is back, and he very likely will be for Rd2. If you started either of the other two, you are probably better holding onto them as we should expect a degree of improvement and eventual (however small) price increases. If you don’t have other corrections to make tho’ …
Well, well, well. I picked the one who was underwhelming. Idiot! Hats off to those who started Jacobs and/or Naismith. Kapow!
Devon SMITH could and should have scored more I think. BRAYSHAW is coming back from minor foot surgery following Marsh2 and the break should do him the world of good. His PPM rate was decent albeit his TOG% appeared to be managed as he recovers. I’m holding. PETRACCA and GREENWOOD delivered on expectations and some. Tom J LYNCH could be a rocky ride, but seems to score well in big games. Next up Collingwood who are great defensively but he could do anything and will probably go bang soon.
CEGLAR and FORT were both excellent. About the only two I did get right!
MACPHERSON seemed to play outside when we wanted him having significant inside minutes. We know he has a low floor, but has a huge ceiling too. Am sure people have bigger fish to fry.
The following players have either carried on where they left off, have SC-friendly roles, present value or a combination of the three.
DEFs: Darcy BYRNE-JONES, Hayden CROZIER, Adam SAAD and Wayne MILERA
MIDs: Jack VINEY, Oliver FLORENT and Jack STEELE 😉
FWDs: Ben LONG, Connor ROZEE, Jack MARTIN and Chad WINGARD
Think that’s all for now folks!
