Supercoach - Demons players.

Recommended Posts

Supercoach opened today and there are some cheap Demons players.

Jimmy Toumpas 240k

Dom Tyson 216k

Viv Michie 172k

JKH 117k

James Stauss 268k.

Will these players get a run?

Are there any other Demons of value.

Midfielders: Michie and Tyson great value if they can get in the team and average around 20 touches they will rise in value by heaps. Both Grimes and Vince listed in low 400k with an average score around 80 but both can score a lot more than that. Toumpas and Kent worth thinking about if you expect break out seasons.

Defenders: Again Grimes. Watts and Strauss if you are brave

Forwards: Clark especially and Dawes if you are braver. Hogan should rise his value by a fair bit but I think he'll only average 60 so you'll have to trade him out once he's gone up in value

Rucks: I'd stay away from our guys

I haven't got him (Vince) but I may as he will run more through the midfield and up forward this yeah and will be one of the main men unlike at Adelaide.

Clark, Tyson and Grimes are locks for me.

Blease hasn't been mentioned yet, I've got him on the bench at this stage. Has dropped to 179k and can be selected as a midfielder or forward. I'll wait to see where he fits into Roos' plans.

Clark, Tyson and Frawley for me. With a (hopefully) improved defensive mindset including midfielders spreading back to help out, this will release Frawley's attacking flair and he will average 80+ this year.

Wouldn't get Frawley - there is too much value in the backs this year. But I could end up eating my words.

I have Grimes, Tyson and Clark but have had Viv, Strauss and Blease already this year (and Stef Martin which was a dark moment). I think there could be some great value for melbourne with the first half of the season being somewhat easier.

Tyson, Hogan and Grimes.

With our improvement we'll be having more of the ball so individual scores will go up.

Hogan and Tyson both have been in the system ling enough and will be great for making some $.

Grimes will be back to his best.

Right now I have Grimes, Georgiou, Michie and JKH in my side.

I don't think I've ever had that many Dees in my side at one time!

Here's hoping they all line up round 1.

Who else is loading up with Demons? I know it's a cardinal sin of Supercoach, but it's not without merit. Last season I selected about 5 Port Adelaide players and that delivered in spades.

Watts has now come into my calculations after the intraclub hit out. I was burnt last year, but at 411k, in a new midfield role, I think he's definitely worth the gamble. There really aren't many reliable forward options this year, anyway.

Grimes, Tyson, Blease (M7), King (R4), Watts and Kennedy-Harris are who I'm starting with. Would like to fit Minchie in, but Blease's dual position status gives him the edge for now. I also think Trengove is in for a big price rise, but for me he's too expensive for a midfield gamble.

Yeah I've squeezed Watts in, he is too cheap not to - plus as you mentioned, the midfield role. On top of that he is dual option for supercoach, forward and back.

I couldn't fit him in my star studded backline, so he is in my less than average forward line.

Drop Blease for Michie and thank me later.

I got burnt by Watts last year, he was tearing up in pre-season, come the 1st game, scored 15 - 30pts?? His feet never touched the ground as he got traded out. A waste of a trade. I wont be in such a hurry this year to pick him, I'll sit back and see how he goes regardless of his new role.

Michie and JKH must haves.

Watch and see if we continue the high possession game against Geelong, then load up on some more mids.

Maybe Watts should've been a mid all along.

I've been swayed by some astute demonlanders that this may be the case.

If so, Watts is a must have, it is certainly worth the risk, he'll be around the ball and is a SC dual position player.

At 411k, you could do far worse. Definitely a risk worth taking.

Dees are going to be like 2013 Port, but probably even better, we will be SC gold.

Dom Tyson is a must have, he'll end up around 450k,

All those mentioned appear to be good value. Though I'm wary of Blease. I'm punting on Toumpas to increase in value. (around 400K). If Bail continues the sort of form he showed in NAB cup 1, then might be worth a punt as well.

Yes, wary of Blease, too. Unlike Watts, he's never been a good Supercoach scorer. At 179k, it would be easy to save 50k on a true rookie.

Still, from intraclub reports, he would appear to be firmly apart of Roos' plans. I'll wait to see how he performs in the remaining challenge matches.

Unfortunately, after the game last week, I too have loaded up my team with MFC players! Yes its a cardinal sin of SC but at some time Melb have to become SC relevant and have our players score well - and consistently. And with PR's game plane (yes we have only seen it competitively in one game) the high possession style he has them playing means that the likes of Watts, Tyson, Toumpas, Trengrove, Michie, etc are now viable options to at least make some money if they don't stay in your team for the season.

For the record (at the moment, that is...) I have Watts, Georgiou*, Tyson, and JKH in my team. But Jack Martin could easily become Toumpas and any other mid rookie could become Michie and I have had Grimes in my backline at various stages. Yes, I was burnt by Watts last year as well so I struggled to put him in - but sometime it has to click for him. (But I am also starting to question my sanity b/c I also have Shaun Higgins in my forwards!!! :wacko: ).

* Assuming he gets elevated and plays round 1

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
