Another year of Supercoach, another chance to be tempted by Daniel Rich. The Supercoach Gods were kind to us in 2017, practically ruling him out as an option by giving him pure MID status……literally making him oblivious. But the Supercoach Gods are a sadistic bunch and Rich has been designated as a DEF for the 2018 season.
Surprisingly, Rich is coming off his best season in 2017 in terms of SC-output. After a number of seasons averaging 85 pts, Rich bumped up his avg to 91 pts from all 22 games played in 2017. The stats are a little deceiving however, as there is a large discrepancy between Rich’s best & Rich’s worst.
When he hit the ton in 2017 (six games) he really went on with the job (118, 137, 118, 124, 133 & 126), plus a further four scores over 90+pts. So that leaves us with 12 games that Rich didn’t hit the 90-pt mark, half of which were under 80pts (including a 49 & 55).
Rich uses the ball consistently well when in possession and job security should never really be an issue. But his consistency (or lack there of) will probably drive you nuts over the course of the season. He’s literally the type of player that will directly win or lose League games for you. Buckle up!……..It’s gonna be another rollercoaster ride!
Risk Rating: On a scale of 1-5……1 being safe & 5 being extremely dangerous……Daniel Rich – Two Higgos! His spot in the team is safe but he rarely strings two decent games together, even during his best season. If you start with Rich, you know what you’re signing up for……..
