Polling Station – Rd19

Written by Schwarzwalder on July 23 2018

As always on a Monday, we throw open the Forum to our Coaches. We could make an educated guess about what you’d like to see during the week here at SCT………or we could simply ask!

If there are any polls you’d like to see ahead of Rd19, then don’t hesitate to let us know. A poll on remaining trades will be up later in the day (FYI). Anything else you’d like to see? Ruck replacements? Best Fallen Premiums? Whatever it is, write it in the comments section. We’ll try and fit it into the schedule before Rd19 kicks off on Friday……….

  1. Wighty came up with a good idea in the Round Review thread …

    Rate My Team (for 2019):
    based on those players you are gonna lock-in for the start of 2019

    1. Thanks Sainter…I’m working on mine right now. This should be great for those out of their league running for this year.

    2. Here’s my first go…it brings back how difficult it is to get a good team under 10million. I have assumed current prices….this might mean some lower priced players could be higher by year end, but equally, higher priced could fall and there should be more of them. I have assumed rookies average price is 123.9k…again, plenty higher, a few lower, but I dont think to many $180k rookie players get chosen…do they LDU. Gotta start somewhere. problem with this team is will there be enough rookies.

      Simpson, Laird, Tmac, Rance, Webster, Rookie, Rookie, Rookie

      Titch, Oliver, Heeney, Dusty, Danger, Fyfe, Rookie, Rookie, Rookie, Rookie

      Gawn, Nank Orlango

      McLean, R Gray, T Smith, Bennell, Rayner, Rookie, Rookie Rookie

        1. Doch would be 560 with a 20% discount so cant afford him…….this team is right on the 10m limit. Williams for who ?

      1. As soon as the season ends you can predict prices very accurately for the majority of players.
        Season ave. x $5,500 will give you 2019 prices to the nearest $100. Be sure to take their season total points divided by # of games played for an exact average (rather than their displayed ave. to a single decimal point which will not be accurate enough).
        For players who missed the entire season (eg Docherty and Z Williams), it SHOULD be 2018 price x 0.8 to be within $100 again. Those who played just a couple becomes a bit trickier and I am analysing that now (from 2017 to 2018 on some key players and will get back to you). I have a sample size of 30-odd so should be able to extrapolate something pretty accurate.

        Bennell a bit risky for mine (though he should cost peanuts) and could have a huge upside if he can stay fit. I am not sure McLean will get dpp status in 2019 (playing almost exclusively in midfield now). On the contrary, I hope we can put Danger FWD (please keep playing forward time this year!). Not sure what Docherty back will mean for Simmo (plus he’ll be another year older = makes me nervous to START him, but will certainly keep an eye).
        Like Rayner. He could breakout as early as next season. Looks the goods … and he knows it 😉

        1. Thanks Sainter…great insight….and I agree totally re pricing formula for 2019 and discounts for likes of Doch. I always try and find one non rookie that is cheap and can add pts and $…Bennell. Little cost if it goes wrong.

  2. Short, Witherden, Docherty, Laird

    Dusty, Fyfe, Titch, Crouch, Cripps, Macrae

    McLean, Danger,

    My locks for 2019…

    Any suggestions?

    Scully?

    1. Roo, I had a quick play with your choices on my grandson’s abacus !! Those 12 players currently total 6.453m or an average of 537.7k. Allow a 20% discount for Doch and the numbers fall to 6.332m and 527k. At best, you would have 3.668m left to spread over 18 players…an average of 203.7k, and you haven’t chosen any ruckmen left. Even if you assume 10 rookies at 123.9 k, you would only have an average 303k average for your last 8 choices.

        1. Oops..just noticed the addition of gawn and grundy. With Doch discount, your 14 players currently total 7589.8m, leaving 2410.2 available for 16 players at an average of 133.9k.

          I think I might have too much time on my hands…what do I do after round 23 🙁

              1. Yep. Haven’t played for over 20 years. The app is called PL. EPL-run fantasy premier league. Got no idea what I’m doing but will be fun.

                And will fill a hole, most importantly.

                1. Also if anyone is interested in playing Fantasy Big Bash between December and February I will happy set up a group for Supercoach Talk and several leagues.

                  It is a salary cap format where you select 7 Batsmen ( 5 on field), 7 Bowlers ( 5 on field) and 2 Wicketkeepers (1 on field). All rounders can be selected in either the batters or the bowlers.

                  It is an easy scoring format to understand and only approximately 60,000 players which increases your chances of a high rank or cash in comparison to Supercoach.

                    1. If you guys wanna set up a league, we can put up a thread or two over the off-season for SCT players…..no problem!

                    1. Same here.

                      From memory I think the past 2 or 3 seasons I have finished between 200 to 3000 and would love to finish with a ranking inside the top 100.

                      Just checked and was surprised that I finished 213th last year.

  3. I would like to see a feed on “The Originals”

    How many Players do you have from your “Original” round one line up?
    We could also include current rank.

    I would guess that those with the most “Originals” would also have the better rankings.

    It would be interesting to see the result.

    My current rank is 8936

    I only have nine “Originals”

    Laird / Hibberd / Doedee.

    Titch / Cripps / Parker / Dusty*

    Gawn

    Mundy / Smith.

    * I traded Dusty out R12 for Wines and back in for Treloar.

  4. 11 originals left – Laird, Savage, T Mitchell, Cripps, Coniglio, Gawn, Olango, S Martin, D Smith, McLean & Heeney
    Current ranking – 380, 4 trades left
