Round 19 has left Supercoaches with injuries and suspensions to contemplate their round 20 trades. None bigger than the PCL injury to SJ (HFB|5/8) who will be spending atleast 6-8 weeks on the sidelines from reports. This leaves many Supercoaches (48.4%) of us infact to ponder who is the best trade in for Johnson. The following is a shortlist, but not limited too these 4 potential trade ins.
Nathan Cleary(HFB - $504,400) will be the most traded in player list week for SJ and for good reason. Cleary boasts a 5 round average of 91.20 and a season average of 70.41. Not to mention the most consist goal kicker in the game currently. Clearly the most logical trade in.
Gareth Widdop (HFB|5/8 - $429,800) is another viable trade in who also boasts a season average of +70 and a 3 round average of 81.67. However Widdop's consistency is questionable with a rollercoaster of scores recently and the Dragons well who knows if they will get it together at the back end of this season. Widdop too is a handy goal kicker.
Clint Gutherson (CTW|5/8 - $433,300) aka King Gutho has now found his rightful place at fullback for the Eels and continues to out perform critics in what has been a stella season with a current season average of 67.24 and a 5 round average of 77. Not exactly POD territory as he is owned by 21% of Supercoaches but a certain starter in your top 17. Did I mention he too also kicks goals 😊
Billy Slater (FLB - $536,200) is the most expensive player in SC currently and for good reason the QLD state of origin fullback has a 3 round average of 98!! Slater is a left field option for those inclined and have the cash to burn. Many Supercoaches still have Walker still at fullback and could simply move Walker to 5/8 and bring in the Melbourne superstar who is currently only at 7% ownership. *notable mentions to DCE (currently on fire), Milford and Morgan
