The most popular SuperCoach players at every club after JLT 1
Al Paton and Ben Higgins, Herald Sun

Is your club chock full of SuperCoach stars?

We’ve looked at the most popular SuperCoach picks at all 18 clubs following the first round of JLT Series games.
There’s some shocks — hello, West Coast Eagle Patrick Bines — while there’s no surprise to see Patrick Dangerfield and Patrick Cripps up high.
Ownership and popularity are correct as of close of business Tuesday.

ADELAIDE
7.
Rory Laird $587,600 def (41.0 per cent)
29. Brodie Smith $332,500 def (24.6 per cent)
41. Brad Crouch $418,000 (16.6 per cent)
62. Shane McAdam $123,900 fwd (9.4 per cent)
78. Rory Sloane $524,300 mid (7.1 per cent)
Rory Laird has been a top-10 pick since SuperCoach opened in January while Brodie Smith’s value makes him hard to ignore. But the big bolter since the weekend has been Brad Crouch who has shot to 41st overall in popularity after a big game against Port Adelaide. He’s vastly more popular than his more proven younger brother Matt Crouch, who is only in 6.9 per cent of teams. If Shane McAdam debuts in Round 1, expect his ownership to shoot up.
BRISBANE
35.
Lachie Neale $607,300 mid (19.3 per cent)
48. Alex Witherden $455,000 def (13.8 per cent)
81. Stefan Martin $573,700 ruck (6.9 per cent)
101. Ely Smith $117,300 mid (5.6 per cent)
124. Cam Rayner $327,700 fwd (3.7 per cent)
At 18 per cent ownership, this might actually be the most popular Lachie Neale has ever been heading into Round 1. He’s as reliable as they come and dominated the Lions’ first JLT Series game. Stef Martin started out as a top-30 pick but has plummeted in popularity as Archie Smith looks to usurp his No. 1 ruck role. Smith is cash cow price and could force his way into the Lions’ top five if he continues to show up Martin.
CARLTON
2.
Sam Walsh $207,300 mid (60.1 per cent)
3. Will Setterfield $144,900 mid/fwd (60.0 per cent)
4. Patrick Cripps $648,200 mid (53.1 per cent)
8. Michael Gibbons $102,400 mid (39.4 per cent)
50. Nic Newman $394,100 def (13.1 per cent)
Talk about SuperCoach gold. Carlton is being mined like BHP is going out of business with the second, third, fourth and eighth most popular picks after JLT 1. Setterfield, Walsh and Cripps all scored tons against Essendon while Gibbons showed he’s up to the standard. Despite missing JLT 1 cash cow Liam Stocker has 12.7 per cent ownership while veteran premium Kade Simpson is a POD at 6.4 per cent.
COLLINGWOOD
6. Brodie Grundy $708,200 ruck (44.8 per cent)
23. Isaac Quaynor $153,300 def (28.0 per cent)
54. Darcy Moore $239,400 def/fwd (11.9 per cent)
71. Jordan De Goey $476,600 fwd (7.9 per cent)
75. Jamie Elliott $280,300 fwd (7.4 per cent)
Despite being the top-priced player in SuperCoach, Brodie Grundy remains the most popular ruckman and only enhanced his reputation against Fremantle on Monday. Jamie Elliott is one of the big movers after the weekend, rocketing into the top-100 while Jordan De Goey remains a relatively popular pick despite a foot injury expected to keep him out until Round 1. In his return to Collingwood Dayne Beams is the 94th most popular pick.
ESSENDON
31. Devon Smith $531,300 mid/fwd (24.3 per cent)
33. Zac Clarke $142,600 ruck (21.7 per cent)
40. Andrew McGrath $384,300 def/mid (17.2 per cent)
43. Irving Mosquito $117,300 mid/fwd (15.2 per cent)
67. Dylan Shiel $487,000 mid (8.4 per cent)
After his best-and-fairest winner debut season at Essendon, it’s no surprise to find Devon Smith on top of the Bombers’ popularity contest. However, a big shock is Zach Merrett with just 8.1 per cent ownership behind Andrew McGrath, Irving Mosquito and Dylan Shiel. On the comeback trail, Joe Daniher has 7.6 per cent ownership as a mid-price forward with good upside. We don’t expect Mosquito to debut in Round 1, so it might be time to look elsewhere.
FREMANTLE
9. Brett Bewley $117,300 mid (35.7 per cent)
15. Nat Fyfe $618,100 mid (30.7 per cent)
45. Tobe Watson $102,400 def/mid (14.5 per cent)
55. Luke Valente $117,300 mid (11.7 per cent)
110. Griffin Logue $164,300 def (4.5 per cent)
How strange that only two of Fremantle’s five most popular SuperCoach picks actually played on Monday. Bewley was solid against Collingwood and remains a top-10 pick while Fyfe slid from the verge of the top-10 to 15th after undergoing surgery on his elbow after the AFLX. After scoring 114, Rory Lobb (121st) should skyrocket in popularity as he currently sits in 3.7 per cent of teams. Tobe Watson is most likely being used as a floating donut
GEELONG
1. Patrick Dangerfield $660,500 mid/fwd (66.6 per cent)
17. Charlie Constable $123,900 mid (30.4 per cent)
18. Darcy Fort $117,300 ruck (30.2 per cent)
36. Jordan Clark $114,300 def (19.3 per cent)
57. Tim Kelly $505,800 fwd/mid (10.3 per cent)
Dangerfield’s ownership has remained steady following the opening pre-season game but there’s been a big jump for teammates Darcy Fort, Jordan Clark and Tim Kelly. Fort didn’t steal any headlines with his JLT performance but should play Round 1 while Charlie Constable enhanced his pre-season reputation as a top cash cow. Kelly’s the interesting choice as it’s rare to see a first-year player back up such a strong maiden season.

GOLD COAST
13. Chris Burgess $123,900 def/fwd (31.4 per cent)
22. Sam Collins $188,900 def (28.6 per cent)
26. Izak Rankine $198,300 fwd (26.4 per cent)
37. Anthony Miles $342,000 mid (18.2 per cent)
59. Harrison Wigg $102,400 def (9.8 per cent)
Firstly, what’s Harrison Wigg still doing in almost 10 per cent of teams? He’s out for the season, people! Chris Burgess looked the goods in tricky conditions in the Suns’ JLT clash in Mackay, as did Sam Collins. Both will be there in Round 1 and should be in your SuperCoach team. Izak Rankine showed a bit but with just seven disposals can we spend almost $200k on him? Fellow high-priced cash cow Jack Lukosius is in 8.2 per cent of teams.
GWS GIANTS
19. Lachie Whitfield $542,100 def (29.7 per cent)
20. Zac Williams $407,800 def (29.3 per cent)
34. Josh Kelly $617,800 mid (20.7 per cent)
38. Toby Greene $354,600 fwd (17.9 per cent)
61. Stephen Coniglio $588,600 mid (9.5 per cent)
Lachie Whitfield and Zac Williams are locked in a fierce battle to be the Giants’ No. 1 SuperCoach pick and likely you’re going back and forth over who to pick in your team with Williams the value pick at $140k less. Stephen Coniglio shot back into SuperCoach calculations with an impressive showing against Sydney on Saturday while we’re yet to see Josh Kelly or Toby Greene this pre-season.
HAWTHORN
42. James Sicily $570,400 def (15.9 per cent)
46. Jack Scrimshaw $149,800 (14.2 per cent)
60. James Worpel $395,700 fwd/mid (9.6 per cent)
89. Chad Wingard $481,100 fwd/mid (6.3 per cent)
92. James Cousins $219,900 mid (6.0 per cent)
James Sicily as a forward was not what we wanted to see on Sunday but Jack Scrimshaw as a distributing defender was all we hoped for. James Worpel showed a bit but James Cousins is the big mover as Hawthorn figure out how to replace Tom Mitchell. Despite not play. Despite another setback with his calf injury, Chad Wingard remains in 9.6 per cent of teams while 5.1 per cent of SuperCoaches hope Grant Birchall can finally end his injury curse.
MELBOURNE
11. Marty Hore $117,300 def (32.2 per cent)
12. Max Gawn $692,100 ruck (32.0 per cent)
28. Clayton Oliver $662,400 mid (24.7 per cent)
56. Angus Brayshaw $526,900 mid (10.6 per cent)
99. Christian Petracca $442,600 fwd/mid (5.7 per cent)
After impressing in a scratch match against Collingwood and again in the JLT clash against Richmond, Marty Hore has rocketed into SuperCoach cash cow calculations. In fact, he’s now edged out Max Gawn as the Demons’ most popular pick. Gawn didn’t play JLT 1 and despite Brayden Preuss looking more and more likely to play Round 1 remains hugely popular. Clayton Oliver’s big ton against the Tigers has improved his ownership significantly.

NORTH MELBOURNE
39. Todd Goldstein $548,000 ruck (17.3 per cent)
72. Tom Wilkinson $102,400 fwd (7.9 per cent)
73. Luke Davies-Uniacke $197,500 mid (7.6 per cent)
97. Aaron Hall $389,200 mid (5.7 per cent)
103. Ben McKay $123,900 def (5.3 per cent)
Aaron Hall’s ownership fell after hurting his knee in the opening minutes of JLT 1 but the new Roo got some good news and should be ready for Round 1. With Robbie Tarrant and Majak Daw on the sidelines, Ben McKay looms as a Round 1 starter in defence. Todd Goldstein is the third most popular ruckman behind Grundy and Gawn, underlining his popularity as a value pick for those team unwilling to splash out $1.4m on the top-priced pair.
PORT ADELAIDE
27. Connor Rozee $189,300 def/fwd (25.8 per cent)
44. Zak Butters $157,800 mid (15.1 per cent)
52. Justin Westhoff $549,500 ruck/fwd (12.6 per cent)
53. Xavier Duursma $130,800 def/mid (12.5 per cent)
63. Willem Drew $123,900 mid (9.2 per cent)
Two cash cows are big bolters after the first week of JLT Series games. Zak Butters and Willem Drew are now among the most popular SuperCoach picks after impressing against Adelaide. However, Connor Rozee remains the most popular pick, despite his higher price. A lot depends on Robbie Gray’s (79th overall) role but if he starts playing permanent midfield his 7.6 per cent ownership will skyrocket..
RICHMOND
16. Dustin Martin $463,800 mid (30.7 per cent)
47. Noah Balta $123,900 fwd (13.9 per cent)
120. Alex Rance $448,100 def (3.7 per cent)
127. Jack Riewoldt $504,100 fwd (3.6 per cent)
153. Jayden Short $465,600 def (2.9 per cent)
There’s not a lot of love for Richmond players in SuperCoach this pre-season. It continues to surprise us that Dustin Martin isn’t a top-10 pick given his price and scoring ability. Noah Balta was the talk of the SuperCoach town on Sunday with a strong JLT 1 showing against Melbourne and in just one day increased in popularity by almost 7 per cent. One-time premium defender Alex Rance has dropped right off the radar at just 3.7 per cent ownership.
ST KILDA
14. Nick Hind $117,300 mid (30.8 per cent)
21. Matthew Parker $117,300 fwd (29.0 per cent)
30. Dylan Roberton $297,500 def (24.4 per cent)
64. Callum Wilkie $124,900 def (8.9 per cent)
80. Dan Hannebery $326,100 mid (7.1 per cent)
The Saints loom as a cash cow and mid-price heaven in 2019 with the top-five popular picks all priced under $330k. Mature-age recruits Nick Hind, Matt Parker and Callum Wilkie should all suit up in Round 1 while Dylan Roberton looks back to his premium defender form of 2017. Former Swan Dan Hannebery is battling injury and is long-odds to play Round 1, leaving 7.1 per cent of SuperCoaches to find another option in midfield.

SYDNEY
5. Isaac Heeney $529,200 fwd/mid (46.9 per cent)
25. Jake Lloyd $608,200 def (27.2 per cent)
49. Nick Blakey $166,800 fwd (13.4 per cent)
70. Callum Mills $428,900 def (8.1 per cent)
106. Samuel Wicks $102,400 fwd/mid (4.9 per cent)
Isaac Heeney has been a top-10 most popular pick since SuperCoach opened and only enhanced his case for a bigger role in the midfield against GWS. The other man looking to move into the engineroom, Callum Mills, is in just 8.1 per cent of teams with a logjam of mid-price defenders available this season. Jake Lloyd was clearly the No. 1 scoring defender last year but it would seem his price is a little off-putting given his 27 per cent ownership.
WEST COAST
83. Patrick Bines $102,400 ruck/fwd (6.9 per cent)
98. Jack Petrucelle $123,900 fwd (5.7 per cent)
100. Francis Watson $123,900 def (5.6 per cent)
102. Elliot Yeo $585,500 mid (5.6 per cent)
107. Dom Sheed $394,100 mid (4.8 per cent)
Have we found the new Tony Olango? Patrick Bines is a bottom-priced ruck-forward who looks to be the No. 1 floating donut candidate for 2019. Jack Petrucelle’s ownership should grow as he builds a case for Round 1. He won’t be a huge scorer but we need forward bench options. Despite his stellar 2018, Elliot Yeo is now a massive POD as a midfielder only at only 5.6 per cent ownership. Can Dom Sheed build off his Grand Final heroics?
WESTERN BULLDOGS
10. Ben Cavarra $117,300 fwd (35.5 per cent)
24. Tom Liberatore $300,400 mid (27.7 per cent)
32. Jack Macrae $689,700 mid (22.8 per cent)
58. Bailey Smith $180,300 mid (9.8 per cent)
66. Josh Dunkley $516,300 fwd/mid (8.5 per cent)
Despite not playing in JLT 1, Ben Cavarra remains the most popular pick at the Bulldogs and top-10 overall. Tom Liberatore’s impressive showing against the Suns in Mackay has seen his ownership rise sharply, ahead of high-priced teammate Jack Macrae. SuperCoaches have seemingly lost faith with Toby McLean (6.2 per cent) while Marcus Bontempelli is in POD territory with just 4.7 per cent ownership.

Maybe Al & Ben wouldn’t be so surprised at Dusty’s ownership numbers if they double checked his actual price! :eek:

Post JLT1, things have happened...

Choices Choice Awards - 6 March 2019

Overall
1)
Danger = 67% (was 66%)
2) Walsh = 61% (was 48%)
3) Setterfield = 60% (was 56%)
4) Cripps = 53% (was 49%)
5) Heeney = 47% (was 44%)
6) Grundy = 45% (was 44%)
7) Laird = 41% (was 40%)
8) Gibbons = 40% (NEW)
9) Bewley = 35% (was 41%)
10) Cavarra = 35% (was 40%)

Out - Hind. In - Gibbons.
Why is Danger DPP, etc etc. Percentages firm up, Blues make up 3 of the top 4. The cookie cutter is getting sharpened!

Defenders
1)
Laird = 41% (was 40%)
2) Hore = 33% (was 31%)
3) Burgess = 32% (was 29%)
4) Williams = 30% (was 26%)
5) Whitfield = 29% (was 33%)
6) Collins = 29% (was 28%)
7) Lloyd = 27% (was 30%)
8) Quaynor = 27% (was 31%)
9) Smith = 26% (was 20%)
10) Rozee = 25% (was 31%)

Out - None. In - None.
Percentages move, but the spread selection in the backs remains.

Mids
1)
Walsh = 61% (was 48%)
2) Cripps = 53% (was 49%)
3) Gibbons = 40% (was 33%)
4) Bewley = 35% (was 41%)
5) Constable = 32% (was 22%)
6) Hind = 30% (was 35%)
7) Dusty = 30% (was 34%)
8) Fyfe = 30% (was 34%)
9) Libba = 29% (NEW)
10) Oliver = 25% (NEW)

Out - Miles, Kelly. In - Libba, Oliver.
Plenty of changes and movement in the mids this week, a midpricer and prem swap.

Rucks
1)
Grundy = 45% (was 44%)
2) Gawn = 32% (was 32%)
3) Fort = 30% (was 33%)
4) Clarke = 23% (was 14%)
5) Goldy = 17% (was 15%)
6) Westhoff = 13% (was 14%)
7) Schlensog = 9% (was 9%)
8) Bines = 7% (was 7%)
9) Martin = 7% (was 8%)
10) Sweet = 7% (NEW)

Out - Mummy. In - Sweet.
Looks like Grundy/Gawn might be a pretty popular combination. Will be interesting to see the percentages after JLT2 with Clarke not playing and Fort on the edge.

Forwards
1)
Danger = 67% (was 66%)
2) Setterfield = 60% (was 56%)
3) Heeney = 47% (was 44%)
4) Cavarra = 35% (was 40%)
5) Burgess = 32% (was 30%)
6) Parker = 30% (was 24%)
7) Rankine = 26% (was 28%)
8) Rozee = 25% (was 31%)
9) Smith = 24% (was 24%)
10) Greene = 18% (NEW)

Out - Mozzie. In - Greene.
Forwards have been the most stable line, seems a clear GnR strat is being used by most.

Lot of love for Gibbons but he kicked three very opportunistic goals ... seems like the Higgins pick of last year IMO which didn't turn out too bad in hindsight. If he got a run through the midfield I'd lock him in but not so sure yet ...

The JLT is done, let's see what has happened!!

Choices Choice Awards - 12 March 2019

Overall
1)
Danger = 67% (was 67%)
2) Walsh = 65% (was 61%)
3) Setterfield = 62% (was 60%)

8) Laird = 39% (was 41%)
9) Gawn = 38% (NEW)
10) Constable = 35% (NEW)

Out - Bewley, Cavarra. In - Gawn, Constable.
Oh I wish Danger wasn't DPP, the season would be that much harder! The BEARD comes into the top 10, BB must be beside himself with excitement.

Defenders
1)
Laird = 39% (was 41%)
2) Hore = 35% (was 33%)
3) Smith = 33% (was 26%)

8) Williams = 29% (was 30%)
9) Duursma = 27% (NEW)
10) Lloyd = 26% (was 27%)

Out - Quaynor, Rozee. In - Clark, Duursma.
Burnman Smith the big climber this week, otherwise rookie swaps.

Mids
1)
Walsh = 65% (was 61%)
2) Cripps = 53% (was 53%)
3) Gibbons = 40% (was 40%)
4) Constable = 35% (was 32%)
5) Libba = 32% (was 29%)
6) Dusty = 28% (was 30%)
7) Butters = 27% (NEW)
8) Bewley = 27% (was 35%)
9) Oliver = 25% (was 25%)
10) Hind = 25% (was 30%)

Out - Fyfe. In - Butters.
Fyfe out!!!

Rucks
1)
Grundy = 44% (was 45%)
2) Gawn = 38% (was 32%)
3) Fort = 26% (was 30%)
4) Clarke = 23% (was 23%)
5) Goldy = 16% (was 17%)
6) Westhoff = 13% (was 13%)
7) Schlensog = 9% (was 9%)
8) Bines = 9% (was 7%)
9) Sweet = 8% (was 7%)
10) Martin = 7% (was 7%)

Out - None. In - None.
As expected, Gawn firms in popularity following JLT2, Fort drops ownership but otherwise everything looks the same. Seems people are paying up big in the rucks this year (I know I am!).

Forwards
1)
Danger = 67% (was 67%)
2) Setterfield = 62% (was 60%)
3) Heeney = 45% (was 47%)
4) Parker = 34% (was 30%)
5) Burgess = 32% (was 32%)
6) Cavarra = 27% (was 35%)
7) Drew = 22% (NEW)
8) Rozee = 22% (was 25%)
9) Smith = 21% (was 24%)
10) Balta = 19% (NEW)

Out - Rankine, Greene. In - Drew, Balta.
Greene drops out, Mozzie has buzzed off - just as I predicted about 6 weeks ago ;) Interesting to see Cavarra is still in a lot of teams even though he didn't play in the JLT.

The wait is almost over. The time is now at hand. We can let go that indrawn breath. And ruin what we've planned!

Choices Choice Awards - 19 March 2019
