SC 2015: Position Changes

Written by MJ on December 18 2014

There are some massive names that have been awarded dual position status for next year’s SuperCoach season. No doubt many on this list will make for tantalising selections in our pre-season planning. Swan, Goddard and Deledio are all proven elite SC names that will now fight for our affections in the forward line. SuperCoach veterans will fondly remember the latter two being staples in defence over the years, so it’ll make for an interesting change of pace in 2015.

Here are your brand spanking new DPPs for the 2015 season:

Dane Swan (Collingwood) — midfield/forward

Brendon Goddard (Essendon) — midfield/forward

Brett Deledio (Richmond) — midfield/forward

Jack Ziebell (North Melbourne) — midfield/forward

Harley Bennell (Gold Coast) — midfield/forward

Dale Thomas (Carlton) — midfield/forward

Adam Cooney (Essendon) — midfield/forward

Paddy Ryder (Port Adelaide) — ruck/forward

Tom Bellchambers (Essendon) — ruck/forward

Jarrod Harbrow (Gold Coast) — midfield/defender

Nathan Krakouer (Port Adelaide) — midfield/forward

Christian Petracca (Melbourne) — midfield/forward

Jayden Laverde (Essendon) — midfield/forward

Hugh Goddard (St Kilda) — defender/forward

Sam Durdin (North Melbourne) — defender/ruck

Kane Lambert (Richmond) — midfield/forward

There are always two sides to the coin, so sadly we will have to say our goodbyes to some DPPs that have provided plenty of enjoyment to SuperCoaches in 2014. In particular, Mitchell, Bartel, McVeigh, Swallow and Hanley made up the majority of defensive ranks last season. Their defensive eligibility has been cut for 2015 in exchange for midfield status, with the exception of the Geelong champion, Jimmy Bartel as a forward.

Here’s the list of our favourite players who have lost their DPP eligibility:

Patrick Dangerfield (Adelaide) — midfielder

Sam Mitchell (Hawthorn) — midfielder

Pearce Hanley (Brisbane) — midfielder

Jimmy Bartel (Geelong) — forward

Luke Parker (Sydney) — midfielder

Jarrad McVeigh (Sydney) — midfielder

David Swallow (Gold Coast) — midfielder

Stefan Martin (Brisbane) — ruck

Chad Wingard (Port Adelaide) — forward

Lewis Taylor (Brisbane) — forward

Josh Caddy (Geelong) — midfielder

Luke McDonald (North Melbourne) — defender

  1. My biggest issue is in my Keeper Draft League where I’m now overloaded with mids cause of Hanley and Dangers changing.


  2. Cuts once essential players such as Dangerfield, Smitch and McVeigh right out of it.

    No dpp on Parker either 🙁

    Both defence and forward lines will look very different.

    Of course, the revelations so far are for AFL fantasy and not supercoach, but since they both work off the same champion data they usually at least start the year with same dpp’s, even if AFL fantasy change theirs during the year.

    Waiting on a couple more dpp revelations, but at this stage dpp rucks will be very hard to find.


  3. Just read this:

    You’ve worked all year to perfect your line-up for your SuperCoach Grand Final, only for AFL coaches to rest half your team and ruin six months of work. We’re not putting up with it any more. After listening to the fans, the 2015 SuperCoach private league season will start in Round 2 and culminate in Round 22, when skill can decide your league champion, not luck.


  4. Have a spread sheet that allows those who can’t wait for SC to open and twinkle with a team, don’t know how to email it to supercoach talk so they can upload =(
