Michael Barlow: $456,200

So we get another player price for AFL Dream Team today from the latest DT article on the AFL website. We learn that Michael Barlow will be priced at $456,200.

They also discuss whether you should pick him or not. Now we’ve got this question a lot from people over the last few weeks.

The simple answer is no, don’t pick him.

Barlow is coming back from a snapped leg (even though the DT article says a knee… novices) and isn’t even training fully yet. Heck, he probably won’t play NAB Cup and is even in doubt to start the season. We all know he has a whole heap of Dream Team ability – we all had him last year – but it’s going to be hard for him to maintain that average/price. You’d be better looking elsewhere.

The other bit of info we see in that article, is that Gary Ablett is $43,000 more than Barlow… making him $499,200.

  • Does this mean people now how enough information to work out the “magic number’ and determine accurate prices for most players?

    • Theoretically, yes. That Ablett price puts a spanner in the works. Rookies may not be exact and also the extent of discounting is not yet known. So, I guess it’s a wait and see. Fan Planner is still an awesome guide though

    • ye forget about him (he may never come back).the big question is, where do we find another barlow???

  • Monty has Barlow within $100. Not sure if Fanfooty has been updated today though to change his price or whether that was post Krak’s price being released. I noticed he has increased the price of some of the GC players. The free agents that signed have a $5k markup and the rookies they signed last year have a $20k markup. Has there been something else announced as far as Gold Coast players are concerned that I have missed?

  • Just wondering when TKOL will STOP bragging on about Last year and good (“lucky”) he was.

    • I cant help that ive got the winning formula.
      2011 will make 2010 look like a B grade.
      The Kings of Leon will be driving the Toyota in 2011!

  • completely unrelated to michael barlow but nonetheless important, all dt talk enthusiasts need to watch an american comedy that airs on fx that’s called “the league” and is about a group of guys that run an american fantasy league, look it up on youtube it is hilarious.

  • Way to pricey for me this year, will watch his return and maybe consider him next year!

  • I whole point of picking rookies is to get the next Barlow, not the current one.

  • If he plays the roaming forward/midfielder role like Chappy and Dids, he will become elite -just like them.
    He is so, so clever & skillfull, and kicks goals (GAJ style).
    I reckon like GAJ, this year he will prove to be pretty much untaggable.The only concern is his body of course.
    Great Dream team upside, but unbelievable Supercoach scoring potential!

    DELICIOUS INDEED!

  • The League is absolutely hilarious, 2 seasons in now. Kind of inspiring me to get a trophy for
    My league this season
