It's getting close to the halfway point of the season with SuperCoach owners well in the swing of things with downgrading and upgrading rookies, as well as trading away out-of-form players and injured premiums.

SuperCoach teams should be looking to take shape as the bye rounds approach, and it would be wise to make sure your 'boost' option for trades are preserved for these series of lulls.

However, with popular premium Jack Steele going down with injury, and other popular selections like Stephen Coniglio underperforming, it is necessary to make changes to ensure teams are still strong as the season progresses.

With that being said, it's time to look ahead to next week and see who to buy, hold and sell as Round 10 nears.



Maurice Rioli ($167,700) (MID/FWD)

The Tigers' livewire forward impressed in his first couple of outings against West Coast and Collingwood, averaging 82 SuperCoach points across those two games and was a popular trade-in last week.

Unfortunately for those who traded him in last week, he rewarded owners with a 'whopping' 7-point performance against the Hawks.

Rioli still has a low breakeven of 20, and with the Dreamtime game this week, Rioli will be keen to bounce back during a contest he has helped promote throughout the week.

Hold for the time being.

Nic Martin ($396,000) (FWD/MID)

The Bombers' youngster has been a shining light in what has been a disappointing season for the Dons so far, averaging 21.2 disposals and 86.8 SuperCoach points per game this season.

Martin is still in 68.3% of teams and for good reason due to his consistent scoring ability.

The 21-year-old did have a down game on the weekend, only scoring 59 points which has given him a higher breakeven of 86 heading into the next round.

His price won't fluctuate too much this round as he has probably hit his ceiling in terms of cash production, but he's not a must-trade as he is reliable with his consistent scoring of the 70-90 point range.

So, if you have other areas of concern in your side, attend to that before trading Martin out.

Nick Daicos ($381,400) (DEF/MID)

The leading contender for the NAB Rising Star award continues to deliver consistent performances for the Pies week in, week out, averaging 24.7 disposals and 81.4 SuperCoach points per game.

Daicos is in a similar boat to Nic Martin as his breakeven of 75 is similar to his average on the season so his price will stay similar to its current state in the near future, but he shouldn't be an area of concern for owners due to his ability to get 20 or more disposals each week and get his 70-80 points.

Hold for now unless your side is healthy and there is potential to upgrade Daicos to a premium defender or midfielder.
