Bit harsh on Moore.. his price will build on spike games.
Dont think so, I love the way he plays, but he is not SC relevant anymore. His value will not change if he keeps scoring 70/75, better to cash in the 80k he has gained so far and get Marshall. Marshall with a BE of 7 will easily appreciate another 40/45k

At his price i think Marshall has to be considered a keeper.

Wow, thanks Professor, far beyond the call of duty (y)
If Westhoff is not getting the ball much up forward and he's not getting the ball much on the wing, then where do you think his SC scoring is going to come from? Maybe you answered that already by saying the team's ball movement may improve, it can't get much worse for Westhoff, ay.
My main concern is that Westhoff's scoring is costing me wins in my League Games.
I take your point that he has dropped $113K already and may drop $30K more this round (actually I am expecting more since PTA plays WCE), but will bottom out. Bottoming out is a good point to consider, because financially he won't be hurting any more and his scoring may go up right :unsure:.
Looks to me that PTA needs to drop Lycett to do SC teams with Westoff a favour :).
I don't expect Lycett to be dropped in favour of Hoff, lol, but believe that they will address ball movement and put heat on underperformers, such as Hoff. Do you think he wants to get dropped after holding the record for most consecutive games? Someone will be in his ear and as reactive as it sounds, will come put with renewed focus and desire to win back that ball. I believe he'll bounce back soon, has a high of 136 vs WC & a low of 53, let's hope he doesn't score like that again.

That’s why I said I think his price will build with spike games.

Interesting that you think he is lacking self motivation and that is part of his poor scoring, hmmm. I thought he might be carrying an injury, but didn't think it could be lacking desire to win the ball, good point!
In summary then, Westoff is lacking self motivation, he's playing more forward and PTA is playing poorly, hmmm.

Hinkley admits his side has some challenges in wanting to play their style of game each week, and believes they weren’t able to do that against the Tigers.
“There is still plenty of work for us to do,” he said.
“We’ve got a long way to go to become anything like the Richmond Football Club.
“I said to our players inside that we wanted to play the way we do and we didn’t play the way we wanted to.
“There are some challenges for us.”

I’m going to hold Parker.

Just as a word of warning in relation to structure, after dumping Balta last week, I found that if I wanted to trade Parker, I would be stuck with Drew and Setterfield on my fwd bench and wouldn’t be able to cash Drew out for a midfielder any time soon (until a fwd rookie downgrade presented).

Parker is now important for me to hold up a spot on the fwd bench and keep that M/F link open.

Be sure to check long term structures when trading.

J Westhoff:
RD5 VS WC: Last 3 VS WC: 102.33 from 3 (low of 85 and a high of 136, 2/3 below 100, 1/3 120+)
RD6 VS NM: Last 3 VS NM: 132.33 from 3 (low of 114 and a high of 147, 2/3 120+)

You've already has last week's out, nothing can change that. Move on. Consider what this is, Fyfe out for 1 week. Run a rookie. It's not worth the trade. You be kicking yourself come round 15. @pizza safety Have a look a Jordan Lewis when he copped a massive KO a few years back. He played the 3 consecutive weeks and was putrid. He later acknowledged he wasn't right. Concussion has different impacts each time. If it takes an extra week so be it. Will be better for the rest.
I had other issues in my side that I fixed up last week and expected him to miss just the 1. If he misses 2 he might miss 3 and when he does come back I’d be worried that he’s not 100% right for a while. On top of all that he’s liable to get injured again later on. Couldn’t trade a guy I expected to just miss the one but he’s gone if he’s out again this week. Most players aren’t great if they get concussed but there’s a difference between not feeling absolutely 100% and not passing the concussion test.

Zerrett over Bont for mine, longer history of 110 scoring and isn’t in the same side as Libba and Macrae. Only trade number 3 for the year and that’s all good :)

Ok SCS community! I need your advice.

My team’s flying at the minute and I’m only about 400 off the leader, but not having Whitfield is holding me back.

Which option would you pick?

A) Moore & Williams > Stack and Whitfield
Pros: gets Whitfield early and can loop fwd rookies with Setterfield for a couple of weeks
Cons: moving on 2 solid mid-pricers early and loses DPP

B) Butters>Stack
Pros: Starts building a war-chest for early upgrades
Cons: A return to average for Butters will see his cash generation back on track and will miss out on approx $80k

C) No trades
Pros: Saves a trade
Cons: Won’t close the gap on the front-runners

what am I missing with Stack ? scored 40 against Port without Cotchin, Houli , Martin, Riewoldt all due back.

Richmond with 2 games in 5 days coming up be interesting to see how they pick their team, chance Balta, Ross, Stack etc may only play 1 game

The best unique options after Round 4 of AFL SuperCoach
April 16, 2019

ROUND 4 UNIQUES OF THE WEEK

Rowan Marshall | FWD | $406,100 | Ave. 114.7 | 3.6% ownership
Having already increased by more than $65,000, St Kilda’s Rowan Marshall has been flying heavily under the radar to begin the season with. However, that all looks likely to change with scores of 114, 111 and 119 coming in his three games to start the season (he wasn’t selected in Round 1) for a three-game average of 114.7 and a breakeven of just 4. Marshall is playing a lone hand in the ruck duties for the Saints, but the crux of his SuperCoach scoring is coming in the way of his aerial prowess. Marshall’s ability to get behind the ball and take intercept marks is what has rocketed his scores into triple digits. Marshall also stands up in the elite figures stoppage clearances too. He’s winning his own footy and gaining yardage for his team, again a metric that bodes well for SuperCoach output.


Caleb Daniel | FWD | $471,900 | ave. 103.3 | 2.6% ownership
The smallest man in football is relishing a new role in defence and so are the 2.6% of SuperCoaches who own him. After opening his 2019 account with back-to-back triple-digit scores, Caleb Daniel has since pumped out two scores in the 90s making him a firm premium option with a point of difference. But should we really be this surprised? Daniel finished the 2018 season with a wet sail when Luke Beverage threw him behind the ball, and it has since translated perfectly into SuperCoach numbers. With Daniel’s poise, run and carry, overlap possessions and an elite field kick, he’s quickly winning admirers in a season where forward options in SuperCoach have hardly turned us on.

Jacob Hopper | MID | $478,800 | ave. 108.3 | 0.9% ownership
The young GWS on-baller was already on the watch list for many coming into the 2019 SuperCoach season, and he has started the season with solid numbers and little fanfare. He opened the season with a score of 129 and perhaps undid some of his good work in Round 2 against the reigning premiers on a day where the Giants were belted from pillar to post for only 84 points. But since then, Hopper has toned up twice more, bringing his four-game average to a handy 108.3 SuperCoach points. But, in light of the season-ending ACL injury to Giants captain and midfielder Callan Ward, Hopper’s relevance just took a hockey stick-like spike in SuperCoach with news that he is set to become a prime mover at the coal face for the Giants for the remainder of the season. Expect his numbers to explode in the coming month.

Tom Stewart | DEF | $516,400 | ave. 111.8 | 4.3% ownership
Having become the new general down back for the Cats in their hot start to the 2019 season, Tom Stewart has pumped out triple-digit figures in his last three games, (95 points coming in Round 1) and now bodes as a serious premium option down back. With all the attention on the likes of Jake Lloyd, Rory Laird and Lachie Whitfield, Stewart’s average of 111.8 shouldn’t be overlooked in a hurry. And it’s not just his ability to bring up a SuperCoach century which has us interested, it’s his ability to surpass the 120-point mark, which he’s done now on two occasions. Having notched all Australian honours last year, Stewart is embarking on the highest honour an AFL player can achieve, and that is to be referred to as a SuperCoach premo! Garb him! He won’t be at this price for long.
