    Whether your a novice or a astute veteran, you can not go past the basics.

    Beginners Guide – NRL Supercoach
    The Terms
    PPM (Points Per Minute):
    The amount of points a player scores per minute played. To calculate, divide a players score by the amount of time on the field.

    PPG (Points Per Game): The average amount of points a player scores per game.

    Reserve: A player who is selected (one of four) on your bench and is outside your top 13.

    NPR (Non-playing Reserve): A player who is not selected on your bench (outside your top 17) and does not contribute to your weekly score.

    DPP (Dual-Position Player): A player who can be selected at more than one position.

    Gun (400k+):A top-15 player who is a stand out performer across all positions.

    Mid-Range (200-400k):A player who is priced between both the guns and cash cows.

    Cash Cow (113-200k): A cheaply-priced player who is expected to jump in value.

    POD (Point of Difference): A player who is owned by less-than five-percent of Supercoach teams.

    BE (Break Even): The minimum amount of points that a player must score each week to maintain their current price.

    Auto-emergency: An auto-emergency occurs when one of your 17 selected players does not play. In this circumstance, your lowest scoring (above zero) non-playing reserve will be added to your team’s score.

    Base Statistics: Base statistics are used to gauge a players minimum score each week. Base statistics outline the amount of tackles and hit ups made, subtracted by disciplinary statistics such as missed tackles, penalties conceded and errors.

    Attacking Statistics: Attacking statistics favour the backs and highlight a player’s ability to score big each game. Statistics such as (but not limited to) try scoring ability, try assists, offloads, tackle breaks and forced goal-line dropouts amount to a player’s attacking numbers. Goal kicking is not included.

    Team List Tuesday: NRL teams are named at 5pm each Tuesday. They will give you a great insight into who is playing each round.

    Captaincy loophole: The captaincy loophole works only when your selected captain does not play. This will result in double points being awarded to your vice-captain.

    For the loophole to work, you must select a player as your vice-captain who will play before your selected captain. Should your vice-captain score big, sub in a non-playing reserve as your captain who will not take the field in that round. Given your newly assigned captain will not play, your vice-captain will be awarded double points and an auto-emergency added to your weekly score.



    The Origin Period
    [​IMG]
    2016 NRL Bye Planner. Beginners Guide – NRL Supercoach.

    Start planning from round one. It is important to be able to field a side during rounds 12-19 during the bye period, while also conserving trades.

    Non-eligible Origin players such as Sam Burgess, Shaun Johnson and James Graham are great buys in the early rounds. They also have the potential to be a top-15 player.

    Look for teams who play on major Origin bye weeks (Rd 12, 15, 18). The Parramatta Eels have the best buy schedule as they do not play on any of these bye rounds. The Dragons also have a favourable early bye schedule, followed by the likes of the Raiders, Bulldogs and Wests Tigers.

    Check your league’s schedule as many will play head-to-head match-ups during these rounds.

    Picking your team
    The Guns.

    Forget the salary cap, you need to select guns. Heavily priced players such as Paul Gallen, Corey Parker and Jonathan Thurston are noted Supercoach superstars and have been for years. Don’t loose faith in these guys despite their age and hefty price tag.

    The key number is seven guns. A minimum five forwards (including hookers) should be your first picked players.

    Mid-range
    These players are the biggest gamble of any grouping of player.

    Why? Opportunity. In most cases opportunity will cap these players. Think Tohu Harris and Ethan Lowe of last season. Both men were presented with an opportunity to play 80-minutes and thus, were great Supercoach buys. Panthers forward Bryce Cartwright and Manly’s Jamie Buhrer fall into this category for 2016.

    Cheapies.
    These are the players who will have a superb pre-season or could be undiscovered until Team List Tuesday. They are rookies or inexperienced players who are set to receive a huge boost in value

    Roosters five-eighth Jackson Hastings ($133,800) and Titans halfback Ashley Taylor ($133,300) figure to be the most selected cheapie this season.

    Cheapies should make up the majority of your reserves and bench, as it is these guys who will boost your team value in the short-term.

    Cash Cows – NRL Supercoach
    Jackson Hastings
    ($133,300, HLF | 5/8)
    2015 SC ave – 18.57

    The exit of former Roosters five-eighth James Maloney has opened the door for Hastings in 2016. Expect the Roosters playmaker to shed his ‘auto-emergency nightmare’ tag and become one of the highest selected players at the start of the season. It is also thought Hastings will goal kick, drawing comparisons to former goal-kicking rookie halves, Adam Reynolds, Trent Hodkinson and Daly Cherry-Evans.

    Ashley Taylor ($133,300, HLF | 5/8)
    2015 SC ave – 12

    The Broncos loss is the Titans gain. Taylor’s time at the Broncos was cut short after suffering a broken thumb in his debut game in round 26. As Kane Elgey suffered a season-ending knee injury, Taylor will be thrust into a playmaking role with newly acquired halfback Tyrone Roberts. Due to the lack of quality cheap options in the halves, Taylor is a certain lock in most teams.

    Michael Chee Kam ($133,300, CTW | 2RF)
    2015 SC ave – 20

    A mere cult hero on name alone, Chee Kam is set to feature heavily in 2016 given the Tigers inexperienced backs. Training at centre this off-season, expect Chee Kam to be first inline for Chris Lawrence’s right centre spot. His only competition is Lawrence, should his stint in the forwards not work out.

    Ben Henry ($133,300, CTW | 2RF)
    2015 SC ave – 19.5

    Arguably the most injury-prone player in the NRL, the once Supercoach relevant Henry will be thrown back into the limelight in 2016. While the Warriors boast a stacked three-man 80-minute back row, Henry should find time off the bench early in the season. On price alone, you cant go wrong.

    Paul Carter ($164,400, HOK |2RF)
    2015 SC ave – 26

    The arrival of Sam Burgess has instigated a player clean-out at Redfern, paving the way for Carter to feature in 2016. Anticipate the former Titan to fight for time with Kyle Turner in the back-row. Should he secure significant time, Carter has shown in the past he can pile on the Supercoach points.

    Brenton Lawrence ($166,900, FRF)
    2015 SC ave – 33

    Heavily discounted following an injury-marred 2015, Manly forward Brenton Lawrence returns to the front-row rotation this season. The former emerging Origin star averaged over 50 points in both 2013 and 2014. Trust him to see similar results this season in the absence of Willie Mason.

    Tyrone McCarthy ($164,000, 2RF)
    2015 SC ave –
    Little-known Hull Kingston-Rovers forward Tyrone McCarthy could quietly emerge as the Iosia Soliola of 2015. The departure of Trent Merrin has left a huge hole in the ‘Red V’ forward pack. While it is unlikely he becomes an 80-minute forward, there is certainly value to be had given the likelihood (his direct competition)Mike Cooper starts at prop



    is how many ‘guns’ should you have to start the season. Historically seven is the magic number and the threshold to posting a good score in round one.

    Outside of those who are proven Supercoach stars, there is a select few who are genuine must haves. These guys will be highly selected and will out score their starting value.

    Here is the top must haves for 2016.

    Must Haves – NRL Supercoach
    Paul Gallen
    ($499,500)
    2015 SC ave – 79
    Sharks captain Paul Gallen enters 2016 as the most expensive duel-position forward option. In what is thought to be his last season with the Sharks, Gallen’s role as a premier forward will likely continue. The representative star has averaged at least 70-minutes in the past three season with a ppm in excess of 1.05. The new interchange rule will likely cap any depreciation in his time on the field.

    Still not convinced?
    Gallen has averaged 57 base points (per game)over the last three seasons, including a high of 65 last year.

    Johnathan Thurston ($486,900)
    2015 SC ave – 77

    Any team without Johnathan Thurston generally doesn’t fair too well. The Cowboys halfback is the best Supercoach halves prospect since Terry Campese did it all himself for the Raiders last decade. Thurston has averaged at least 48 attacking points per game since 2013, plus goal kicking. He is an absolute stud.

    Corey Parker ($481,800)
    2015 SC ave – 76.19
    It is the same question year in year out – will this be the season Broncos lock Corey Parker declines. If his recent performances are an indicator, than there is no way Parker is declining in 2016. The Broncos veteran will continue to be first-choice goal kicker, while locking-down a starting spot in the front-row rotation. Parker has sustained a ppm of at least 1.20 over the past three seasons, while contributing at least 52-base points per game.

    What about his game time?
    While Parker’s game-time has dropped 15% since 2013, his ppm has marginally increased. Through this, he has remained a 75-plus point player. With the new interchange rule, expect a similar performance from Parker this season.

    Cameron Smith ($433,500)
    2015 SC ave – 68.57

    Quality hooker options are thin in 2016. Outside of Smith and Panthers star James Segeyaro, many other options are considered PODs at best. Keep it simple and snatch up the best hooker option in Supercoach history. Smith has averaged at least 40 base points (per game) over the last three seasons, plus goal kicking.


    Greg Inglis ($413,300)
    2015 SC ave – 65.37
    Forget Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and James Tedesco, Rabbitohs fullback Greg Inglis is the safest and most consistent fullback option. As questions plague to top FB/CTW options, Inglis will perform regardless of circumstance. The Rabbitohs captain has averaged at least 24 base points (per game) and 37 attacking points (per game) in the past two seasons. Expect this trend to continue.

    Jesse Bromwich ($392,800)
    2015 SC ave – 62.13
    Storm prop Jesse Bromwich could be the safest forward option in 2016. His role despite the new interchange rule will likely remain unchanged after averaging 64-minutes last season. The New Zealand international has also averaged 50 base points (per game) over the past two years.

    Bryce Cartwright ($361,600)
    2015 SC ave – 57.18
    Believe the hype. Cartwright will enter 2016 as one of the most selected players. Despite a mixed 2015 season, Cartwright showed his incredible ability to create players, averaging 25.5 attacking points per game. He is the most likely to play 80-minutes of all Panthers forwards.

    Jackson Hastings ($133,800)
    2015 SC ave – 18.57
    Each season one cheapie is considered a must have – this season its Roosters five-eighth Jackson Hastings. Set to take over the role (including goal kicking) of James Maloney, Hastings’ price is a definite lure. In spite of the Mitchell Pearce controversy, Hastings’ value remains stable. Consider him on par with the debut seasons of Adam Reynolds, Daly Cherry-Evans and Trent Hodkinson.

    NRL SuperCoach most popular players revealed: Coaches go cold on Paul Gallen
    February 5, 2016 2:17pm
    The Daily Telegraph




    SUPERCOACHES have gone cold on Paul Gallen, with the man often regarded as the best fantasy player in history just the 37th most popular player.



    Gallen finished last year with the second highest average of any player, but SuperCoaches are unwilling to stump up the near-$500,000 price tag.

    And it’s not just the astronomical price driving SuperCoaches away — the injury-prone NSW and Cronulla skipper played just 16 games last year and is now owned by just 13.24 per cent.

    Meanwhile, SuperCoaches have reacted quickly to the Mitchell Pearce scandal, with potential replacement Jayden Nikorima emerging as the sixth most popular player.

    We’ve dived into SuperCoach Gold, the subscription service within SuperCoach, to reveal the 20 most popular players of 2016.

    The SuperCoach Gold free trial period has been extended this year - make the most of it for free right through to the end of round two, including the entire pre-season (SuperCoaches only had a two week free trial last year, to be activated any time).

    1. Jackson Hastings (HFB, 5/8) $133,300

    Starts cheap after playing only bit-parts last season, but will take James Maloney’s five-eighth spot at the Roosters.

    2. Sam Burgess (FRF, 2RF) $423,700

    Left the NRL as the best player in SuperCoach, but returns as just the ninth most expensive. Cher-ching!

    3. Ashley Taylor (5/8, HFB) $133,300

    Set to start in the halves for the Titans following the season ending injury to Kane Elgey (ACL).

    4. Latrell Mitchell (CTW, FLB) $113,800

    The “next Greg Inglis” will get a run at some stage in a Roosters backline missing Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Michael Jennings and Nene Macdonald.

    5. Johnathan Thurston (HFB, 5/8) $486,900

    The best playmaker in SuperCoach history starts expensive, but you’ll need him at some stage.

    6. Jayden Nikorima (HOK, HFB) $113,800

    Could start in the halves for the Roosters following Mitchell Pearce’s disciplinary indiscretion.

    7. Michael Gordon (CTW, FLB) $285,900

    The former SuperCoach great averaged just 45.22 last year as he was shunted between wing, bench and fullback, but has the No. 1 slot to himself at the Eels.

    8. Corey Parker (2RF, FRF) $481,800

    He’s not nicknamed “God” for nothing. Another must-have at some stage.


    9. Ben Henry (2RF, CTW) $133,300

    Class player returns very cheap following a second knee reconstruction.

    10. Dale Copley (CTW) $178,500

    Gets a fresh start as the centre replacement for Michael Jennings at the Roosters.

    11. Bryce Cartwright (2RF, 5/8) $361,600

    Capable of becoming the best player in SuperCoach if he increases to 80 minutes.

    12. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck (FLB) $489,500

    [​IMG]

    The best fullback in SuperCoach last year is a base stats machine and attacking genius, but how will he gel with his new teammates at the Warriors?

    13. Kirisome Auva’a (CTW) $170,700

    Starts very cheap after playing just four games last due to an NRL ban for domestic violence.

    14. Trent Merrin (2RF, FRF) $385,000

    Averaged just 54 minutes at the Dragons, but could up that considerably at the Panthers.

    15. Konrad Hurrell (CTW) $266,600

    Played just 12 games last year due to injury and poor form, but starts cheap and could return as a keeper following a brilliant pre-season.

    16. James Graham (FRF) $352,100

    With an endless motor, Graham could be one of the big beneficiaries from the reduced interchange.

    17. Tevita Pangai (FRF, 2RF) $113,800

    The Junior Kangaroo and Holden Cup Team of the Year member is set to be blooded by the Raiders at prop.


    18. James Roberts (CTW) $347,200

    Could take his game to a new level at the Broncos under Wayne Bennett and outside Anthony Milford.

    19. Pauli Pauli (FRF, 2RF) $144,200

    Very talented backrower moves from the stacked pack at the Eels to the struggling Knights, where he should see improved game time.

    20. Michael Chee Kam (2RF, CTW) $133,300

    Tigers recruit can play centre and back row and starts cheap following limited opportunities in four games for the Sea Eagles last year.

    a few cheapies I missed, always need to wait for those first team sheets.

    Would hold off on Buhrer for a while now but he was on my radar.

    Have already changed my mind on Gallen and swapped for Sam Burgess, reduced interchange should see him improve and Gallen cant really get any better

    It's hard to say what effect the reduced interchange will have. The key is to pick up those players who will go the full 80mins this year who maybe in seasons past haven't spent the whole game on the field and their points scored / price reflects that. Merrin is in this camp, and there are one or two others I'm waiting to see how they are used.

    Not surprised Gallens popularity has waned, he had a lot of injuries last year and didn't really give good value for money, he's probably a lay for me as well.

    @Clint the default jumper is all black. Go to your team "home page" and there should be a black circle next to your team name. Click on that and you should be able to change your team colours from there

    You can't select different teams for different leagues. Whatever team changes you make apply for all the leagues that team is entered in. If you want to have different teams in different leagues then you need multiple accounts/logins/teams

    it is there or there abouts. Need to wait until teams are named then pick up as many cheapies who are going to play at least 3 weeks (3 weeks = price change)

    I should add - once those cheapies have stopped increasing in price you sell 2 and pick up 1 cheapy and 1 good player.
