Round 10 marks the start of arguably the most important two-month stretch in Supercoach. Nine weeks of work and planning will culminated into the ultimate strategy come the Origin period.

While bye-friendly options are the obvious choice to effective bye planning, there is several smaller ideologies that go into planning, including the impact of attacking stats.

What are attacking statistics?

Attacking statitiscs are often broken down into three areas; scoring, creative, evasion. This is to better understand a player’s strengths and weakness when it comes to his attacking output.

Scoring stats: Try, goal, field goal, missed goal, missed field goal.
Create stats: try assist, linebreak assist, last touch, forced scrum, kick regather, forced dropout, 40/20.
Evade stats: Offload, ineffective offload, tackle bust, linebreak.

Why are attacking statistics important?
Attacking stat weapons will providing you with those big scores. They will also be inconsistent unless you own a top-tier attacking option – Anthony Milford or Johnathan Thurston.

Players with high attacking numbers are also a great compliment to teams with a handful of high base statistic players.

The Origin period poses its own challenges with a testing bye schedule. Of the non-origin players, Anthony Milford, Shaun Johnson and Ben Hunt are the top choices. Given the Broncos have their first bye in round 15, the value of Milford and Hunt is at its highest point now.

Outside of the top five there is a host of players who have spiked in price after a number of incredible performances. Raiders backs Jordan Rapana and Joseph Leilua, plus Cowboys’ Michael Morgan have all exploded recently with their prices out of reach for many teams. Add the likes of Ben Barba and Corey Oates who have received huge boosts in their price since the start of the season and are peaking this round.

There is a number of bye friendly POD’s that are at a juicy price. Corey Norman and Gareth Widdop have floated around the 5-7% ownership level for a number of weeks. Tigers backs David Nofoaluma and Kevin Naiqama have had impressive starts to the season and could be the ultimate gamble for two players who have a favourable bye schedule.

Popular picks Jarrod Croker and Semi Radradra are set to rebound over the coming weeks. For those without these two, it is now or never given their ability to bust out big scores.

The key to attacking statistics is selecting players who excel in two areas (scoring/creative/evasion). This will help you secure the very best, and most consistent attacking option.

It is no surprise Anthony Milford leads all Supercoach scoring given his attacking numbers this season.
