SuperCoach Price Watch: Using those final trades – Marshall, Dawson, Stewart or even Zorko

With three rounds to go, is it time to use those final SuperCoach trades? The gain covering an injury now, as opposed to holding one in case of emergency is arguable.

With Adam Treloar and George Hewett in doubt for Round 21, the case is strong to move them on, to get that final kick for a rankings rise or to win head-to-head leagues.

This week, we’ll take a look at a few sideways options to replace those two as forwards and defenders.

Rowan Marshall (SC $480k F/R, BE 21)

The Saints ruckman surged up $29k this week after a whopping score of 177, where everything about his role checked out. Plenty of coaches expected Marshall to surge after Paddy Ryder’s season-ending injury the week prior, but he only managed 88 against West Coast, but he delivered in Round 20. St Kilda’s bluff with Tom Campbell named, before being a late withdrawal, arguably cooled off interest in Marshall but for a player sub-$500k, he looks a great pick, even if replacing Darcy Cameron with worries about his role with Brodie Grundy due back. With a break-even of 21, don’t delay.

Tom Stewart (SC $579k DEF, BE 67)

Plenty traded in Stewart last round upon his return from suspension and he remains the obvious switch from Hewett, assuming you can afford it having gone up another $17k. Stewart scored 112 on his return in Round 20 and enjoys a good run of fixtures to finish, including two more games at GMHBA Stadium. Geelong also take on the leaky Eagles in Round 23 which could be a huge boost in head-to-head league grand finals.

Jordan Dawson (SC $554k D/M, BE 106)

If cash is preventing you from getting to Stewart, then Crows defender Dawson looms large, having fallen $8k this round despite scoring 126. He had three sub-100 scores in a row, meaning his price is on the decline, but had eight consecutive tons prior to that, so he’s got the quality and has been the victim of a few tags lately. The fifth best averaging defender available in SuperCoach. Has a nice run, with West Coast and North in the next two.

Angus Brayshaw (SC $518k DEF, BE 59)

Slightly left field but an option for a more affordable player is Melbourne’s Brayshaw who enjoyed his first CBAs of the season last round against Freo, pumping out 123. Dees coach Simon Goodwin suggested he may see more mid-time in the final few rounds too, having got his chance with James Harmes out injured. Brayshaw’s half-back role has been productive but there’s scope some CBAs might see a nice uptick in scoring on his 99.5 season average.

Dayne Zorko (SC $353k D/M, BE 19)

He’s injury prone but he’s an absolute bargain right now after his Round 16 injury-affected score of 6. With three rounds to go, that risk of injury is lessened given he only has a short run of games to get through. With a break-even of 19, this is likely as cheap as he’ll get. He’s scored 85 and 103 since returning, so if you need to get creative due to multiple injuries/issues he may offer a downgrade ‘premium’ option whilst upgrading someone else to an uber premo elsewhere. Has eight tons from 16 games this year.

Mason Redman (SC $576k DEF, BE 113) deserves a shout too, after scoring 176 to improve his five-round average to 117.2 but he’s probably too pricey. Still only owned by 1% of coaches.
