    Ive put Delidio in mids as a DPP with Brown, would love to know your thougts?
    Is the Mid too strong?
    Only $100 left?

    Thanks in advance for your opinions.

    • I’ve gone the same Lids in the center to rotate out with Scotland and Goddard. After byes will look at leaving all in def using new dpp trading rule and trading in premo for rookie.
      Not sure about Brown and Wilkes getting much game time. Also be careful with porps. He can score but can also be inconsistent. You can get cheaper forward that can score similar to Porps. He is also an injury magnet and therefore too risky. If your gonna spend that $ on Porp maybe look at Callinan instead.

      • who would you say instead of props? i think i wil get rid of him for a rookie but whom i have saad and kennedy in the fwd line already who would you say? also whats your thought son dangerfield?

  • Hi guys its my first year in dream team i think my team is pretty settled but i would like some advice and feedback on my team thanx in advance…..

    • Your backs and forwards are way too weak and your midfield isn’t even strong enough to make up for that. Sorry mate. You have one too many rookies in both of those positions. How much cash do you have left over?

    Thoughts :)

    • You seemed pretty sold on Geary before mate. I think you should stick to your guns and back yourself. Even though I wouldn’t go near him I say pick him because if you were right about him and he smashes it you will regret not having him. It’s picks like Geary that could put you above the rest. Look at Matt Suckling last year. No one knew anything about him, no one picked him. He then came out and smashed an 90 average. If you started with him you would have been above the rest. I actually think Suckers was priced about the same as Geary is this year.

      • Yeah Decided To go Malceski as Geary could be sub alot

        • Would a backline of Goddard Deledio Broughton Waters Malceski Hargrave Geary Be too stacked?

          • Yeah I think it would be mate… But lets say if you did do that what would you change to fit Geary in there?

        • Porps to pfieffer or another rookie, saad to hall and sheil in mids were pfeiffer was then morris or bugg to geary and move ellis to bench

  • Malceski nice smokey!!!

    • Hey Sainty 2010. Just not sure about the Porps still. Injury prone and not consistent. Bit like Chris Knights, Jack Grimes and Shaun Higgins. Good price however. Had him in and out of my squad and at the moment he’s out. Not convinced yet but we’ll have to wait and see what he can produce. Everyone else seems to be solid choices. Good luck Sainty

      • Thanks mate good luck to you too. im also not completely sure about porps but hes there at the moment. im also considering Jamie Cripps and Ian Callinan

  • goddard delidio broughton birchall heppal lake darley, (ellis morris)

    Thoughts?????

    • 71 000 in the bank what should i do with it

    • Taking a bit of a risk in the rucks but who knows, it could work out for you!
      Besides that it looks like a pretty solid side :)

  • Any thoughts about going with mid priced ruck as R1 and 3rooks then using the $ to spend on premo mids/def/for. More chances of scoring higher with these plars especially mids.?

    • Its what im doing so go for it!

    • yeah i’ve been tossing around with that idea since day one with a couple of options in Kreuzer and HMac too hard to pass up these DPP Fwds and high scoring defenders

  • Simone your team is looking strong with balance and upgrade potential. IMO hold onto the cash to put it towards upgrades during the season.

  • Thoughts and advice on my team would be great.

    This is the 5th and last time I post my side this pre season.
    Would love to get some thoughts. I’m pretty settled on it but I still have some question marks over some rookies such as:

    Lee Spurr (Mature aged and scored well on the weekend, averaged 88 last year in the SANFL but is still rookie listed and I don’t trust Ross Lyon picking rookies).

    Sam Darley (It is pretty much a question between Darley, Bugg or Townsend? Or maybe forget about GWS defenders and go with someone like Morris from Richmond. He has showen a lot of promise in the NAB Cup but so did Josh Toy in the pre season last year and he burnt me!)

    Stephen Clifton (Was pretty sold on him but he only scored 21 yesterday. Was he sub? Either way if he was a sub or he played a whole game and got 21 it is pretty worrying! James McDonald is still on my radar to replace him if I decide to ditch him but I’m still worried about him getting red vested.)

    Sam Gibson (Could be a unique rookie pick that could pay off. Everyone has jumped off him but he all know how could be. Could he be the Ed Curnow of 2012? Nobody picked Curnow in there starting squad because we didn’t really notice him in the NAB but once the real stuff began he was awesome! Still hopefully he see a full game from Gibbo today.)

    Aahmed Saad (Mature aged and I love those types! In first NAB Cup game he showed how well he could score. He has a bit quiet on Friday but I won’t worry about that too much. My only worry about this guy is his JS.)

    So if anyone has some thoughts on these guys or anyone else in my side please let me know. Thanks :)

  • I just worked out in round 13 ive got these guns missing:

    G.Ablett. M.Murphy. L.Franklin .G.Birchall. B. Deleidio. J.Redden. B.Ellis. B.Goddard. L.Montagna. A.Saad.
    Oh god :/

    Round 11:
    Zorko. Porplyzia. Clifton. Giles. Bugg. Darley. McIntosh. Hargrave. Boyd

    Round 12:
    M.Clark. Sidebottom. Zaharakis. Duffield. Neale. Fyfe. Big O. Hogan. Magner. Goodes.

    Should i worry about round 11 and 12. But im definentaly worrying about round 13!
    Please help me suggest things!!

    • Saad, Ellis and Redden are just rookies, not guns so don’t worry about them. They will most likely be out of your side by then anyway. I think Montagna’s DT days are over so he is the guy I would ditch from the R13 bye group. You should be fine mate :)

  • Hi Warnie, when do we get to see who we will play against head to head?

  • Hi Guys! I have got heaps of spots left in these leagues!
    Pete’s League,12 SPOTS LEFT, for beginners only (1st or 2nd year): 803525
    Big Footy, 14 SPOTS LEFT, for people who are looking for some fun and laughter, but have good teams and also don’t mind some competitiveness: 432096
    Come on guys, Fill ’em up!
    Thanks guys, and enjoy dreaming!

    Cheers :)

  • Who knows mate even your opponent in R13 will be missing a tonne of guns. In R11 &12 they might be weaker than you. You just have to take a punt like everyone else. You will be able to see your opponents teams when the season begins so you’ll know roughly what you will be up against (Not taking in to consideration the trades they will make leading up to the bye rounds). As i said it’s a punt but you’ll have some direction to work from. Best of luck!!

    still undecided on rookies

    • goddards just crap spurr might not get uprgraded i think clancee pearce will zorko hasnt played all nab cup and put bugg on for smedts cause hes playing average

  • wondering what peoples thoughts are on Rhyse palmer? seriously considering him as one of those mids that will kill it this year. I felt yesterday his absence was massive and his effect on the giants is bigger than first expected, could be a mamoth year for him as well as anyone dare put him as their 4th mid and save some serious $$ for the start of the season

    my current mids are Pendles . Mitchell, Murphy . abblett, mccarthy and caddy (kerridge, stevens). Was thinking of trading out one of my premiums for palmer, hoping he rockets in price. Thoughts

  • and one more think caddy or mccarthey?

  • He’s at a very tasty price.

    Seems to be alot of people jumping of heath shaw this year. whats the reasoning? poor pre season performance?

    Fwds – Franklin, Goodes, Fyfe, Martin, L.Adams, Porplyzia, D.Smith [J.Cameron, S.Kerridge]

    Your thoughts would be much appreciated, Emergencies aren’t final of course, not gunna start with anybody not in first round unless i know they will be playing very early on. Thanks!

    • I like your mids, covering your bases with DPP in both forwards and backs.

      For mine, your forward line may be a little lean with both Adams and porps. If I were you I would keep one and bring in one of the many rooks out there, in my opinion it wont sacrifice ur forward line that much but ull have the cash to make some choices as the season starts

  • yeah. agreed bennja, my forward line could be changed a little, im really waiting til round 1 inclusions, could possibly downgrade adams and use the cash to upgrade rookies as they increase in price, thanks for ur opinion tho

  • Gray or Dangerfeild?

  • Thoughts on Shannon Byrnes and Luke Parker? both flying under the radar!!

  • Hey guys thoughts on my team would be nice especially if anyone thinks is should get rid for porps/danger for a better ruck. Also advice would be nice on rookies as to wether they will play or not and also if they are better rookies out there.
