Thanks for these stats and the links. Will those BE's take effect from round 1?
Have just seen Darius Boyd's 36 Ave, but BE is 12. I think this year could be improved. Meaning price rise is almost guaranteed first round. Am I looking at it right?
They are the BE's from the last round of last year, Boyd's BE will be roughly 36 for R1, as that is what he is priced at. Once you play a set amount of games the previous year your avg becomes the price for the new year. So its only rookies who have played a few games, or guys coming off a serious injury that have a discount price which will give them a lower BE compared to their previous years avg.

Personally would not go anywhere near Boyd, he will be playing wing as Issako has first crack at the fb gig. I also doubt he finishes the season in first grade, his contract is in his favour of extending a year if he plays 15 nrl games this year (from memory, its roughly that amount) as he is chewing up way to much of the salary cap.

I'm not really sold on A. Fifita but am willing to have him if need be. What about choices between these guys?

FRF: A. Fifita vs Tamou vs Pangai
and
H/B: L. Brooks vs M. Moses vs Cleary

I like Brooks, I think he'll have a great year. But always open to changes to benefit the whole team

I'll provide my thoughts but I think you'd prefer assurance from those more knowledgeable and qualified.

Prefer Fifita out of that trio due to his scoring history, reduced minutes last year and points per minute avg but could be ongoing concerns regarding the injuries suffered and potentially his age allowing more minutes to the younger players. Pangai and Tamou I don't know much about except that Pangai was highly regarded last season to break-out but it didn't eventuate with the emergence of Haas and D Fifita whereas Tamou has a great PPM and could potentially receive more minutes but I prefer V Kikau, J Fisher-Harris and I Yeo in the FRF/2RF positions from the Penrith Panthers.

H/B:
N Cleary has 4 consecutive years of averaging 60+ and the departure of J Maloney should be beneficial for him to increase his avg to the 70+'s and would be my preferred option if funds permit.
Moses should also be a great option due to Parramatta opening with a soft draw and regarding Brooks I'd prefer the aforementioned 2 which will likely be safer but if you have financial constraints Brooks doesn't seem like an overly bad option.

TOP 8 VS BOTTOM 8 SCORES
BEN HUNT (DRAGONS)

AVERAGE: 59.6
TOP 8: 45.6 (11 games)
BOTTOM 8: 74.9 (10 games)
DIFFERENCE: -29.3
THINGS TO NOTE: Hunt really was the epitome of a flat-track bully in SuperCoach last year, putting up scores of 134 and 101 against the Bulldogs, before late season hits of 99 and 116 against the Titans. His highest score against a top 8 team was 82 against the Sea Eagles, but registered five sub-40 games against the other top teams.

MITCHELL PEARCE (KNIGHTS)
AVERAGE: 49.4
TOP 8: 37.6 (11 games)
BOTTOM 8: 60.1 (12 games)
DIFFERENCE: -22.5
THINGS TO NOTE: Cracked the ton against the Dragons and the Warriors and scored 99 against the Cowboys. Went under 40 points seven times against the top teams, including scores of 11 and 19 against the Storm.

SHAUN JOHNSON (SHARKS)
AVERAGE: 63.0
TOP 8: 48.1 (6 games)
BOTTOM 8: 71.0 (11 games)
DIFFERENCE: -21.9
THINGS TO NOTE: Had has average against the top teams hurt by a hamstring injury against the Broncos, scoring just five points in that match. Otherwise registered 98 against the Storm and 86 against the Rabbitohs in just six games against the top 8 teams.

JAHROME HUGHES (STORM)
AVERAGE: 56.4
TOP 8: 46.7 (10 games)
BOTTOM 8: 65.1 (11games)
DIFFERENCE: -18.4
THINGS TO NOTE: Struggled to fire a shot against the top teams with three scores less than 30 and his top score of 74 coming against the Broncos. Two centuries against the bottom teams (Warriors and Titans) lifted his average, but his 40 and 29 against the Bulldogs hurt.

LUKE BROOKS (TIGERS)
AVERAGE: 58.1
TOP 8: 50.3 (13 games)
BOTTOM 8: 67.2 (11 games)
DIFFERENCE: -16.9
THINGS TO NOTE: Notched three scores of 90+ against bottom teams while his highest score against a top team came with a 74 against the Sharks. Otherwise nine of his 13 matches against the top 8 saw him score 50 or less.

JACK COGGER (BULLDOGS)
AVERAGE: 39.6
TOP 8: 32.2 (9 games)
BOTTOM 8: 47.7 (8 games)
DIFFERENCE: -15.5
THINGS TO NOTE: Not much to see here. You’re probably not going to pick him on overall average anyway.

DALY CHERRY-EVANS (SEA EAGLES)
AVERAGE: 62.0
TOP 8: 55.7 (9 games)
BOTTOM 8: 67.6 (10 games)
DIFFERENCE: -11.9
THINGS TO NOTE: An ankle injury against the Raiders saw DCE score just 28 in one of their match-ups, dropping his overall average. Was otherwise pretty solid against the top teams, while a 156 against the Warriors, a 112 against the Knights, and a 91 against the Dragons boosted his stats against the cellar-dwellers.

MITCHELL MOSES (EELS)
AVERAGE: 62.3
TOP 8: 59.5 (11 games)
BOTTOM 8: 64.6 (13 games)
DIFFERENCE: -5.1
THINGS TO NOTE: Not too many concerns here but his average against the top teams was boosted by centuries against the Sharks and the Bunnies. Went under 40 three times from his 11 matches against the top teams.


NATHAN CLEARY (PANTHERS)
AVERAGE: 68.0
TOP 8: 66.1 (12 games)
BOTTOM 8: 70.3 (9 games)
DIFFERENCE: -4.2
THINGS TO NOTE: Again, no concerns here. A 186 against the Knights was matched by a 139 against the Sharks, and a 29 against the Warriors was matched by a 25 against the Eels. Very consistent across both groups.

KODI NIKORIMA (WARRIORS)
AVERAGE: 42.9
TOP 8: 41.2 (12 games)
BOTTOM 8: 45.0 (9 games)
DIFFERENCE: -3.8
THINGS TO NOTE: No real interest here. Move on.

ADAM REYNOLDS (RABBITOHS)
AVERAGE: 54.9
TOP 8: 54.1 (10 games)
BOTTOM 8: 55.5 (12 games)
DIFFERENCE: -1.4
THINGS TO NOTE: Mr Consistent. Didn’t score more than 90 in either group, and went under 40 just once in both. Plug him in and you know what you’ll get – solid but not spectactular.

JOHN ASIATA (COWBOYS)
AVERAGE: 38.1
TOP 8: 38.1 (13 games)
BOTTOM 8: 38.0 (11 games)
DIFFERENCE: +0.1
THINGS TO NOTE: You’re not picking him. I’m not picking him. We’ve wasted enough time already.

CHAD TOWNSEND (SHARKS)
AVERAGE: 50.8
TOP 8: 53.9 (11 games)
BOTTOM 8: 48.1 (13 games)
DIFFERENCE: +5.8
THINGS TO NOTE: A 15 against the Knights and sub-30 efforts against the Titans and Dragons saw Townsend perform better against the top teams. Only went under 30 once against the top teams, in a match-up with the Storm.

MICHAEL MORGAN (COWBOYS)
AVERAGE: 50.8
TOP 8: 54.1 (10 games)
BOTTOM 8: 47.4 (10 games)
DIFFERENCE: +6.7
THINGS TO NOTE: Battled against the Broncos with scores of 24 and 36, and a 29 against the Rabbitohs hurt. But sub-3o games against the Tigers, the Knights and the Titans saw his bottom 8 stats drop dramatically.

BRODIE CROFT (BRONCOS)
AVERAGE: 44.5
TOP 8: 49.0 (11 games)
BOTTOM 8: 40.0 (11 games)
DIFFERENCE: +9.0
THINGS TO NOTE: Was much more consistent for the Storm against the top teams than the bottom teams, possibly because the job was done elsewhere against the lower teams. Will be interesting to see what he can do at Red Hill.

LACHLAN LEWIS (BULLDOGS)
AVERAGE: 42.0
TOP 8: 50.7 (8 games)
BOTTOM 8: 32.0 (7 games)
DIFFERENCE: +18.7
THINGS TO NOTE: You won’t pick him, but a +18 stat is worth noting. Mainly boosted by an 84 against the Storm and an 18 against the Panthers.

Gee whiz couldn’t help myself and have been tinkering with my side a fair bit. Has changed quite a bit from when I posted it last, basically ensuring there’s no basement priced rookie place holders in my side that are no chance of playing round 1 and maximising cash generation potential by having a squad of 25 that are near certainties to be playing round 1.

On a side note - does anybody organise any cash leagues on here for the NRL side of supercoach?

Sounds like a solid play in regards to this year's bench players/rookie priced players.

We only began playing NRL Supercoach in earnst last season, so we didn't have any cash leagues. I'm not sure the confidence level of participants from last season would have many jumping on board. However, you've put it out there is we will see what interest there is in time.

If you’re keen to enter a cash league of say $25-50 entry like this post and if there is at least 10 then I suppose we can get one up and running.

If not, I’m sure we can create a non cashie for fun.

Hess has been disappointing the last two years. Lost his spot in the cowboys starting side and been relegated to the bench. He has bulked up during that period and it severely effected his gas tank as well as lateral movement when in defence. However that being said, he’s trained the house down this off season and looks shredded as. Definitely dropped a fair bit of weight. I’m not sure he wins back his starting 80 minute spot from round 1 though. Feel like he’ll come off the bench and rotate through the edge and middle. It’s a no from me purely because his role is up in the air, but I’m predicting him to have a much improved season.

Merrin is a wait and see over trials. Coming back from Super league and getting on in age. Used to be a supercoach beast but I don’t think he plays 80 in this dragons side, so I’m bypassing for now. If he’s playing 80 during trials he comes straight into my side at that price.
