The way I see it, this year more than ever, the first person
to get to the strongest final 17 (with good captaincy choices from here on out)
should in theory be the person who wins the title.
Could this be the year to rewrite the history books on what
can be considered genuine SuperCoach strategies?
With no byes and no need to forward plan on who will be your
nuffs, this could indeed be the year to ‘Nuffin Up’ and stack your team with as
many nuffs as possible as early as possible, in order to get your strongest 17
all playing before everyone else does.
The theory revolves around the idea that you could run with basically little to no backups on your bench and bring in 6-7 bottom dollar NPRs in order to afford your end game team.
Discussing the viability of this strategy with some of my
fellow SC Playbook contributors it was pointed out that it is without a doubt
very a high-risk, high-reward endeavour given injuries are inevitable.
However we agreed that as long as you have trades up your
sleeve (which we all do this season), then you can trade as necessary on a week-to-week
basis regarding injuries, late outs and matchups.
If you were to put the ‘Nuffin Up’ strategy into practice,
the ideal time would be in about 3-4 weeks when the likes of Katoa, Carrigan,
JTB and the CTW cash cows likely all peak in price.
This allows you to maximise your salary before sacrificing your money-making options from then on out.
Thereafter, you could implement a one gun for one nuff
trading strategy until about Round 11 or Round 12 and achieve your final 17 in
Whilst this strategy is somewhat revolutionary as it goes
against some of the core SuperCoach principles that many consistently high
performing coaches swear by, this game is about adapting to ever changing
circumstances on and off the field.
So this year more than ever is the time to push the
boundaries on SuperCoach strategy.
