One week of finals down the drain, semi-finals time is now. With some controversial stories unfolding from the weekend’s games, SuperCoach fanatics will be in need of players who might bring their side glory.
This week, we cover you with the downgrade options as the “rookies” and the “guns” to get you through the final weeks of this rollercoaster season.
$102,400 | FWD/MID | BE -82
The Demons youngster debuted over the weekend and sits at $102,400, early signs are good as the former Australian basketballer notched up 72 points against the Giants in Round 20. The brother of Magpie Brayden, Corey collected 18 disposals, seven tackles and his first ever goal. With FWD/MID durability, it’s likely you’ll see teams jump on Maynard after one game by downgrading.
$117,300 | FWD/MID | BE -50
Brisbane’s Allison got his chance at senior action two weeks ago, and after scoring 53 on debut he finished with 68 against the Dogs last round. His durability also stands out here, let’s hope Chris Fagan plays the Lions Academy boy this week, and you’ve found yourself plenty of cash after a downgrade.
$102,400 | DEF | BE -49
The defender scored 47 and 64 in his opening two games of AFL footy, one of the few options on the bubble this week. Spencer may be one of the only options down back this week if named.
$123,900 | FWD | BE -47
After making his debut in Round early in the year against the Blues, the youngster was called up for his second game last week. With his side embarrassed during the Showdown, Ken Hinkley might be making a few omissions, seven disposals but five tackles for him. Has now scored 70 and 52 from the two games.
$466,300 | MID | BE 100
The Blues on-baller has had a ripping season 2017, and after averaging 112 over the first 15 rounds, found himself under the $500,000 mark in price. Gibbs was shut down in both the Brisbane (45 points) and Geelong (58) games over rounds 18 and 19. So Tom Rockliff and Scott Selwood can stop him, but Essendon chose not to as he scored his first ton in five games. His price now makes him a superb replacement for the injured Joel Selwood. Scored 208 earlier this season.
$502,300 | RUC | BE 32
After returning from a hamstring injury in Round 14, the league’s premier SuperCoach ruckman has scored three consecutive scores of 100 plus in the past three weeks. His biggest performance was shown against Shane Mumford. Last round, Gawn scored 160 points in a monstrous display. With popular ruck Brodie Grundy reported for two weeks, there is only man who can save us. The scene is set perfect for Gawn here, and with a breakeven of 32, it’s almost a gimmick. The All-Australian will give you money in exchange for the suspended Grundy. He also has some huge scores against upcoming opponents.
