    Thanks :)

  • I kind of went down the road of tweaking my team prior to first half of NAB Round 1 and then decided to just sit on my hands for a few weeks and have a look… as a result, I’ve got a bit in the bank and some obvious issues with the team but hopefully the chance to use one to solve the other.

    Goddard, Suckling, Heppell, Grimes, M Clarke, B Ellis, Spurr (Bugg, Redpath)
    Pendles, Ablett, Murphy, Sidebottom, Coniglio, Shiel (Neale, J McDonald)

    Johnson, Franklin, Fyfe, D Martin, Ballantyne, Rohan, Smedts (Zorko, Treloar)
    $329, 100 left

    Interested in thoughts on:

    Grimes – not sold, and thinking he might be worth upping, but to who?
    Redpath is filling space right now, will likely drop someone else in there at around same price
    Don’t have Boyd just yet and wondering whether it’s worth waiting and hoping he drops down a little early and I can then upgrade to him…?
    Thinking Leuie to Cox
    Ballantyne for an upgrade pre-season?

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    • Ghengis recommends…

      Grimes to Deledio/Shaw

      Sidey to Swan/Selwood

      • Thanks mate, yeah Deledio seems the logical move but I”m waiting to see how he pulls up leading into round 1. I still don’t trust Shaw, I keep waiting for him to get hit with the stupid stick again and end up being rubbed out for the first 6 weeks or something. Can’t fix dumb.

  • All right, I’ve made a few changes, feel free to rate/comment/criticise/fantasise all you like

    TEAM NAME: The Breust Code

    FWD: L. Franklin, D. Beams, D. Martin, N. Fyfe, A. Saad, A. Treloar, T. Walsh (S. Kerridge, A. Hall)
    CASH LEFT: $156,700

    I’ve gone for a Guns and Rooks approach, chopping Lake and Armstrong for Scotland and Smedts, and shuffling some rooks around, trying to figure out which ones will actually play.
    What are the chances of Magner getting upgraded?
    Will all my rooks actually get game time?

    • Hmmmm Questions! Questions that only time will anwser….

      • My phrasing was a little philosophical.
        How about:
        Do these rookies look like they’ll get game time, or are there some better choices?

    • Magner seems a very good chance to get upgraded because James Frawley said he was, and there’s tho spots available because two people are on the long tearm injury list

  • TEAM NAME: The Tornados
    DEF: B. Goddard, B. Deledio, G. Birchall, G. Broughton, R. Hargrave, M. Clarke, S. Darley (T. Bugg, B. Smedts)

  • Quick question everybody

    Why is nobody picking Dylan Shiel, Don’t say he’s injured, Sheed’s already said he’ll be in thier best 22, if he’s only going to miss the first 3 rounds why not just leave him on the bench???

    Personally i’ll be picking him on the bench untill he’s back, he’ll be gold. :)

    What do use think? Whos in whos out?

    • i dont like Shaw, i like everything but midfeild, insted of lake try hargrave, lucas is a risk in my mind

      • having both lucas annd sloane is a risk but could pay off :)

      • If lake plays well and is injury free his a big bonus maybe a risk ill take if his up by round one.. Lucas is a risk but in my eyes i see him to do what rockliff did last year and midfield are cheapish but who else would u get ??

  • Hey Guys, this is the first time I have posted a team.

    Really keen to get some feedback and see what everyone thinks.Obviously we all know a lot can and will change between now and rd 1. This means all rooks are contigent on being names rnd 1!

    My biggest areas of concern are – too many mid pricers/risks?

    Def: Goddard Shaw Birchall Grimes Conca Hargrave Clarke

    • OK – Here is the whole team… sorry about that

      Def: Goddard Shaw Birchall Grimes Conca Hargrave Clarke – Bugg Smedts

      Thank in advance for any advice / critiques!!


      • downgrade conca to rook upgrade hargrave to premium. (or upgrade Ruck)

        Ghengis has Spoken! HUZZAH!

        • Thanks Ghengis,,, to be honest the backline rookies is where I have had most trouble this year… hopefully next three rounds of NAB provide a bit of an eye opened… Ideally that would mean 1 more rook and premium in the backs… and upgrading Berge to Cox

  • Any reason Beams did not play for Collingwood? Is he injured?

  • Hi Everyone,

    Looking forward to another year of DT. Bring it on!!!

    Please feel free to review/comment about my team and give me some suggestions if you like.

    Thought and comments much appreciated
    Cheers in advance

    • It’ll be risky starting 4 rookie backs, but the rest of the team is decent

      • I’m thinking down of downgrading a mid premo to a mid pricer to a rookie or kreuzer to Dericxx and upgrading one

        • Ghengis recommends picking one more mid!
          That strong a starting midfield = weak backline, forwardline and Ruck


  • Hi im just wondering whos better and more consistant C.Enright or G.Birchall
    comments would be appreciated.

    • Tough question!!!! at the minute i have enright but that could very easily change :)

  • My mid field stands at: Swan, Ablett, Sloane, Shiel, Mcdonald and Kennedy, i need 2 more rookie players that i can’t decide out of these following players:

    Couch and

    At the minute i have Wingard and Magner, what would u guys pick????????? :) cheers everyone

    • Wingard and Magner as you said.. you only have 2 proven premiums and sloane that could be risky

      • ur right :), i need that extra captain material, i had some cash in the bank so i upgrade sloane to Rocky :)

    • NAB cup and round 1 selection will reveal all.
      Time will answer all questions!

    • Hi mate,
      the rookies in my mid at the moment i have are magner, neale, sheil and gibson :)

  • Hi,
    does anyone think Heppell will have another amazing season?
