SuperCoach Draft players know all too well that the start of the week can be just as important as the weekend itself. SuperCoach Waiver Claims can often dictate your next week’s results, whether by potentially securing a Free Agent on a hot streak who doesn’t perform the next week, or grabbing a POD player who you know tends to score big against his upcoming opposition. Each week this article will provide a snapshot of players who are currently performing and likely available on your Waiver Wire.
The final four weeks of the season are upon us, so when making Waiver Claims you will now need to consider the week to week opportunities where you identify the players with favourable matchups to either start within your own side, or that you potentially want to prevent your opposition from claiming given a glaring need they need to address.
Jackson Trengove ( 132 / 78.2 / 72%)
Considering recent matchups against Goldstein and Mumford, Trengove would have no doubt enjoyed a change of difficulty against Archie Smith and the Lions this week. In saying that Trengove has been a consistent performer regardless of the ruck opponent of late, averaging 110 over the past three weeks. Trengove potentially faces another novice opponent in Sam Naismith this week, and other than Max Gawn may not face another confronting assignment for the remainder of the year.
BEST OF THE REST
Zach Tuohy ( 108 / 76.7 / 59% ) Tuohy came away with 35 possessions against the Hawks – which ideally should have translated into a bigger score – and is averaging 90 SuperCoach points over the past four weeks. The Blues have a fairly attractive remaining schedule with no top eight matchups (STK,BRIS,MELB,ESS).
Matt Rosa ( 98 / 71.5 / 73%) Rosa is all about risk/reward this season. When healthy he has been a valuable resource given his midfield exposure, which will no doubt increase given the Suns’ depleted midfield brigade. Expect Rosa to score well enough to start for the remainder of the season given his current role, his durability the question that needs to be assessed.
