    • Love the team name.

      As a west coast fan myself, I know that odds are waters will be injured again at some point this year and force you to waste a trade. He had a good run in nab cup, but will he last the distance? I consider him as our version of jonathon brown. Consider down grade to lake maybe.

      Mid field, forward line and ruck are solid if mumford can lift from last weeks performance.

  • Massive question for you guys which will determine how quick i make money out of my cash cows.

    Do i go with 4 prems in the mids and 4 rookies Watson being my 4th mid & 7th fwd

    Or do i go the more risky/unique option with three gun mids & a 5th prem fwd + dangerfield.

    So my question is Watson & Kennedy(fwd)
    or coniglio(Neale comes in for Watson) & mitch robinson(fwd)

  • Just out of curiousity……………………… What is everyone’s projected round 1 score? Im curious to see others. I know it means nothing. But still… Curious. Mine is 1874.

    • 2132

      • Nice proj score brapp mines 1770, but my max score is 2132 :)

        • Yeah I jagged Bugg’s and Kennedy’s score. That 2132 includes a zero from Eliis so if things ‘got to plan’ 2200 is within reach….but anything can happen, I just want to bomb deep into the top 5k.

        • My max is 2346. God how i would kill to get that. Lol.

      • 2110 with Bugg on the bench. No more rookies starting, but a couple of low projected scores chucked in there.

  • 1 spot left

    Golby

    Hargrave

    Dempsey

  • Long hard slog…. pretty happy….Appreciate constructive criticism – Balance $0 !!!!

    Thoughts??

    a few different scenarios are going through my mind,

    Robinson or S.Thompson?
    Dangerfield Yes or no?
    Guthrie Yes or no?
    Lake Yes or no?
    Goddard & Scotland or Deledio & Broughton (to free some more cash)?

    Much Appreciated & Thanks

    • Thompson

      Yes
      Yes
      Yes

      Personally think Cox is overpriced, you could downgrade to berger to get your cash.

      • Cheers Stu,

        Ive Swapped Cox for Berger
        Staying with Robinson atm cause of DPP could change
        Cant find room for Dangerfield as yet (well i can swap Byrne?)
        Lake & Guthrie are safe.
        Cheers

    since most people were going for the 3 and 1 combination in the ruck my goal was to try something different to get a bit of an edge.

    any thoughts would be super appreciated.

  • This is for my D4/5 and F5 spot – who to choose

    Heppel Waters Danger (current)

    Waters Golby Robinson

    • Tough one. I grabbled with all of those. I settled with Broughton, Robbo and Morris; that is about the same money I think.

  • waters vs duffield?

  • cox or kruezer?

    now ive been thinking and in Midfield should i keep it or have (Rockliff or Thompson instead of boyd and J. Selwood.
    And in the def should i keep it or have ( Goddard, Shaw or carrazo )

  • Sorry for re-post*

    This is for my D4/5 and F5 spot – who to choose

    Salary Cap: $900

    Not so sure about Christensen but can’t figure out where to free up more cash…

    Thoughts?

  • Interesting to see a lack of Stevie J in most people’s teams..

    Nobody game??

  • Any reason why Enright hasnt been mentioned in any teams¿ Will be available round one and not many guns in defence this year. Thoughts?

    • Had injury over preseason. Only just mentioned today in afl tweets that he is potentially going to be back for round 1

    • I just think match fitness plays on people’s minds- he may take a few games to really hit his straps. Plus he shares the bye with Shaw, Hepp B and Broughton.

    • Like most DT defenders this year; consistent without setting the world on fire. Age is starting to go against him as well.

  • Defenders:
    Scotland Goddard Broughton Hargrave Clarke Morris Mangan. Bugg Darley

    Midfielders:
    Ablett Pendles Boyd Goodes Vince Coniglio. Shiel Magner

    Ruck:
    Cox Giles. Redden Stephenson

    Forwards:
    Franklin Fyfe Martin Sidebottom Hale Magin Dick. Smith Folau

    Suggestions/Tips/Help?
    Thanks!

  • why isnt Sandi in many teams this year?

    • Dont know, potentially alot of dt coaches out there that got burnt by his toe injury last year.

      Alot of dt coaches have short term memories, less than 10% have jobe watson in their teams. Was a super premium at start of last season, but had an injury and dropped his average from 115-120 down to 100 odd.
