AFL Dream Team 2013 Radar

So, 2012 has ended. We now need to cast out eyes towards the AFL Dream Team 2013 season and Calvin and Roy have been crunching numbers looking at the best picks of the 2013 Dream Team season. Clearly the greatest article for your pre-season preparation!

OUR TOP 10 PICKS FOR 2013

Matthew Leuenbeger (Brisbane) – The big burger played just 3 games (64, 99, 7) in 2012 at an average of 57. He dropped 54k over this short period and will receive a 30% discount with his limited games (priced at an average of 40). Burger averaged 98 last season and will be the most selected ruck in the 2013 AFL Dream Team season.

Mark LeCras (West Coast) – The biggest thing here is… LeCras didn’t play in 2012 and will therefore receive a 50% discount of the 86 he averaged in 2011. LeCras did his knee in pre-season of this year after averaging 16d and kicking 47 goals the year before. He’ll be priced at an average of 43 and will be named as a forward (maybe DPP). Watch his pre-season and NAB Cup games… then lock him in.

Dayne Beams (Collingwood) – Beamsy took his game to a whole new level this year eventually averaging 116 for the season. Even though Beams is a candidate to lose his DPP he looks set to continue his development and will undoubtedly be one of the top 5 scorers next year as well as being one of the few players worthy of a walk-up captain title. Although he will come at a hefty price, it is hard to ignore is final 5 game average of 124, making him a bargain if you think he will continue to improve.

Bryce Gibbs (Carlton) – New coach, new role. Gibbs has been whinging all year about his defensive role and begging for more midfield time (or was it his DT coaches). In 2011, Gibbs received this midfield time towards the end of last season and averaged 121 in his last 8 games. He’ll be priced at his average of 92 from this year and after averaging 115 in his last 5 games of this year, he’s certainly one to watch. Especially if he’s DPP.

Luke Ball (Collingwood) – After averaging 96 last year and starting 2012 well with scores of 110 and 86, Ball was unlucky in copping a season ending injury in round 3 while on a score of 26 which effectively dropped his average for the season to 74. Given that average and taking into account the large amount of footy he has missed, Ball is expected to be discounted to an average of around the 52ppg mark which would make him a massive bargain that would be hard to ignore, especially given 2013 will see the return of the mid priced player.

Trent Cotchin (Richmond) – is now one of the superstars of the competition and one of the few that can be categorised as un-taggable. Cotchin averaged 110 for the season which is impressive, but it was his last 10 games where he upped the anti, absolutely dominating during this period where he didn’t drop under 100. His average over the last 5 games makes him a bargain in 2013 due to an average of 124 which included scores of 145 and 152. He is now in the top bracket of premium mids.

Tom Rockliff (Brisbane) – dropped $207,300 from his starting price after averaging just 94, way below the 112 he averaged in 2011. Rocky spent way too much time as a forward this year (and we’re hoping for a DPP)and if he gets more mid time in 2013, he’ll be one of the best buys going around.

Andrew Embley (West Coast) – Yeah he’s getting old (31 in 2013) but he must be looked at. He averaged 57 this year after averaging 94 and 92 in 2010/11. Embley only played 6 games this year (injuries) playing the last 4 in concession with 94pts in his last game against the Hawks. Embley was also subbed and on top of that he will receive a 10% discount off his low price and will be a wicked pick despite his age.

Travis Cloke (Collingwood) – Had a stinker of a season to average just 74 for the year. A large drop of 22pts a game from 2011. This was due to many reasons but the biggest being 19 goals and around 40 marks less for the year. Cloke was a premium forward last year and will be picked by many in 2013 hoping that he can get back to his best. Cloke is also rumoured to leave Collingwood and join the up and coming Blues… this makes him even more tempting.

Liam Shiels (Hawthorn) – After averaging 103 last year, Shiels was given a more defensive role which really hurt his DT numbers. He dropped 175k this year to average 79. Bargain if his role changes.

Just Missing the Cut

Shane Savage (Hawthorn) – Savage shone in 2011 to average a 77 but couldn’t back it up this year. He averaged just 55 to drop a massive $200,500. He’s a proven ball winner who averaged 25d, 2g a game between rounds 13-16 in 2011. Certainly one to watch as he heads into his 5th year in the system.

Patrick Dangerfield (Adelaide) – Superstar! In 2011, Danger averaged 71 and shone in 2012 with an average of 102. Now, it is unlikely that Dangerfield will be named as a forward (DPP) next year but after averaging 121 in his last 7 for the year, he’s worthy of a midfield spot in your team.

Adam Treloar (GWS) –  Treloar finished the season like a house on fire! In his last 5 games he averaged 104 points per game compared to his season average of just 82 which makes him a bargain. There is always the concern of second year blues, but this kid showed he is an absolute magnet when freed up. His last 6 games did not produce a score below 94 and included scores of 106, 112 and 121. A lock in the forward line if he maintains DPP in your 2013 AFL Dream Team.

Jaeger O’Meara (Gold Coast) – This 18-year-old was too young to play AFL this year but was allowed to play four NAB Cup games despite not officially being on the team list until 2013. He is a bloody jet! He had groin surgery in July and will be one of the most selected rookies many AFL Dream Team’s in 2013!

Sam Gibson (Kangaroos) – Gibbo put his hand up as one of the all time great mature age recruits for our DT’s. He finished the year with an impressive average of 91 but what catches my eye here is that he averaged 111 in the last 6 games despite an out of character 60 in that time. His other scores in during the run home read 133, 108, 114, 118 and 130 which put a lot of our premiums to shame, so he will effectively be priced 20ppg below his last month and a half of footy.

Nathan Bock (Gold Coast) – He is the captain of the GC backline and was on fire last year averaging 80 but actually averaged 95 in his last 6 for the year. He only played 4 games this year (avg.61) and will receive a 20% discount in 2013 pricing him at an average of 49. He’s a bargain despite turning 30 next year.

Brent Macaffer (Collingwood) – Due to a horrible run of injuries, Caffa presents as a possible bargain for 2013. Way back in 2010 he averaged a solid 75 over 21 games but since then has only managed 4 games in 2011 for an average of 53. If he can have a good pre season and is in the mix for selection, he will basically be rookie priced and primed for the taking.

Brent Prismall (Essendon) – After not playing a game in 2012… Prismall will be discounted massively in 2013. He averaged 62 last year from just 8 games meaning he’ll be priced at around the average of 30 in 2013. Prismall is a ball winning machine when he’s not out of favour with the Essendon coaches and has averaged 96 in both the 2009/2010 seasons. The biggest thing here is… Prismall has only played 35 games in 3 years but man o man, he’s worth looking at for sure.

Sam Docherty (Brisbane) – Although this kid hasn’t played a game yet, he’s a worthy inclusion in your list as a rookie. He’ll be 19 next year and was the #12 pick in the 2011 draft. He was named as the emergency  on numerous occasions this year and is one to watch over the pre-season.

Robbie Gray (Port Adelaide) – Twanged his knee after just 2 games this year to average 67. Last year Gray averaged 81 but in 2013 he’ll be priced at an average of just 47 due to his discount. I’m not much of a Robbie Gray fan, but if he’s DPP he will tempt many DT coaches for sure.

Mitch Banner (Port Adelaide) –  In 2011 Banner averaged 71 for the season which included scores of 116 and 122 in his last 5 games. After not playing a game for the Power this year, he is definitely one to watch as he could be priced as low as a 35 point average.

Toby Greene (GWS) – Very rarely do we recommend a young kid who has fired after his first year but this lad is an exception. In his first year of AFL footy, Green averaged 96 and will therefore come with a solid price tag in 2013. But, he averaged 111 in his last 5 games of the year and 123 in his last 3. The kid is an outright jet and will be over-looked by many next year due to his deserved price tag, but may just average 110+ in his second year.

Daniel Menzel (Geelong) – After a horrible couple of years which saw young Geelong star Menzel cop serious knee injuries, he should play at some stage during the 2013 AFL Dream Team season but at what stage remains to be seen. Often likened to Stevie J, this kid is a gun and after averaging 64 in 2011, he should be priced around the 30-40 point mark and could prove to be a very handy downgrade option throughout the season.

Brent Moloney (Melbourne?) – After just 15 games this year, Moloney struggled with the Demons to average just 60. In his last 4 years of footy, he has averaged 86, 88, 81 and 88 in 2011. He also averaged 23d, 6t last year… way ahead of the 17d and 3t from 2012. He’s 29 next year and rumoured to be leaving Melbourne in 2013 and another guys who will relish the change to a new club.

Josh Kennedy (West Coast) – Averaged 79 last year and only scratched together 52 points a game in 2012 due to injuries and only playing 7 games. From what we can gather, Josh will not be discounted next year but is certainly worth considering.

Michael Rischitelli (Gold Coast) – He only averaged 63 this year from only 14 games after a solid 2011 season of averaging 96. He averaged 96 in 2010 as well before being traded by the Lions. So based on these numbers, he’s 30pts below what he should/could be getting. Certainly one to watch.

Michael Evans (Melbourne) – Scored 112 in his first game in 2011 to have everyone liking their lips. He then went 58, 83 before injuring his back/hip to score a 24. He didn’t suit up at all this year meaning he’ll receive a 50% discount and if he shows up for the NAB Cup… he might be a perfect bench option for his price.

Hamish Hartlett (Port Adelaide) – This kid is talked up as being the next big thing and one day he’ll go bang like Cotchin did this year. He averaged 81 this year and 88 in 2011. The year his hammy’s can hold together might just be the year he shows us what he is truly capable of.

  • And Lewis isn’t a fwd anymore

  • Nope. Checked on fanfooty. I wish he was still a fwd as he is really consistant.

    • fanfooty predicts more or less not always right.

        Thanks.

  • What does everyone think about Prismall’s JS. He averaged 95 in 2010 and he is $148,000. Or I should I go for a rookie

  • i reckon i should go for a rookie and replace whitfield for hovrat or/and wines

  • Is anyone thinking about slotting Rockliff into their Fan Planner teams on the expectation that he’ll be DPP?

  • Could please fill me up with all the information as I’m a kid who loves dream team whose dad has blocked all afl (fanfooty) sites apart from this one. Could you please tell me what’s going on for the next month.
    Cheers

  • And oh yeah, the team that I will not be able to change for a month.
    Back: Scotland, Goddard, Gibbs, Grimes, Salopek, Embley, Manquhoun (Thurlow, Docherty)
    Midfield: Swan, Abblet, Cotchin, Boyd, Beams, O’Meara (Hrovat, Wines)
    Ruck: Leuenburger, Vardy (Daniher, Grundy)
    Forward: Franklin, Johnson, Stanley, Robinson, Gray, Lecras, Kennedy (Colledge, Macaffer)

  • Manquhoun is a great cheep player ($101,000) who is a gun and averaged the most disposals in the U18’s Championship. He averaged 28 odd.

  • DEF: J. Grimes, B. Gibbs, G. Birchall, D. Heppell, S. Atley, S. Docherty, J. Pittard (B. Staker, S. Colquhoun)
    MID: D. Swan, J. Watson, T. Cotchin, S. Pendlebury, J. Redden, L. Whitfield (J. Viney, J. O’Meara)
    RUC: B. McEvoy, M. Leuenberger (B. Grundy, J. Daniher)
    FWD: L. Franklin, H. Bennell, D. Zaharakis, C. Knights, M. LeCras, A. Krakouer, D. Menzel (M. Morton, T. Varcoe)
    CASH LEFT: $443,200

    Just chucked together a quick draft of a team, a million changes will be made before Lockout 2013,

    • If you are attempting to go for a POD in your Defense, is Atley really the best person to do it with. He sucks. Knights in your forward line is also concerning, he is past it. Perhaps consider switching Daniher to Forwards and choosing another rookie as your 4th Ruck. ATM your team is pretty crap. You need to get rid of all of those fallen premos they won’t come off. I would give it a 6.5.

  • Yes, Colquhoun is most likely going to get dpp

  • Backs: Scotland, Goddard, Grimes, Gibbs, Embley, Salopek, Manquhoun (Docherty, Thurlow)
    Midfield: Swan, Abblet, Cotchin, Boyd, Beams, O’Meara (Hrovat, Prismall)
    Rucks: Leuenburger, Vardy (Daniher, Grundy)
    Forwards: Franklin, Gray, Lecras, Johnson, Robinson, Stanley, Kennedy (McDonough, Colledge)
    Salary cap: $9,139,000
    Approximately $155,000 left.
    Potential options:
    Gray/Lecras to Macaffer and Vardy to Sandilands
    Robinson to Cloke and Vardy to Sandilands.
    And for those who believe that fanfooty is wrong this is the only information we have at the moment so we might as well base our stuff on this. And even if Embley isn’t dpp I have a perfect replacement in Bock. Also, if Lewis, Beams, etc. are dpp’s they would be certain starters in my forward line but I’m basing my team on fanfooty.

    • If you can upgrade Vardy to Sandilands then I would. Also consider other options though, Sandilands is getting more injury-prone with age. Perhaps Jacobs, Maric, McEvoy or even Big Cox would be better options.

    • you will need about 400 000 more money in the bank for when DT shows its prices. Interesting one in prismall, i would much rather a rookie but he is a risk. good luck mate :)

  • @waffles, why do you always comment on people’s posts? if you want to give your team or make a comment that doesn’t refer to the people your replying to just go to the bottom of the page (without clicking reply..) write your comment and click submit comment. that simple buddy :)

  • Anyone else considering Giles as a #1 ruck choice?

    Didn’t disappoint this year, and with Brogan gone, Giles will ruck all year if GWS don’t target a ruckman in trade week.

    • Key word in that sentence is ‘if’. Sheedy has come out publicly and said, “We need ruckmen and key backs.” This indicates that they would be targeting a ruckman. There are rumours that David Hille from the Bombers is going to go there for a few years. If they got him, Giles would most definitely be number 2. See what happens in Trade Week, but in my opinion, with all the injured ruckmen last year, there will probably be better options that are down on last-year’s average.

  • Can someone please tell me why people are putting Andrew Embley as a def/mid?? Definitly wont happen. Also I’d be keeping $800,000 – 1mil left on the fan planner rather than $500,000.

    • As a West Coast fan, I agree that there is noway on Earth that Embley will be Mid/Def. If he is DPP he will be Mid/Fwd, but even that is very unlikely

  • TEAM NAME: Dogs Be Doggin!
    DEF: H. Scotland, J. Grimes, B. Gibbs, B. Waters, B. Reilly, N. Bock, D. Morris (S. Docherty, B. Staker)
    MID: D. Swan, G. Ablett jnr, T. Cotchin, R. O’Keefe, L. Ball, A. Embley (B. Symes, J. O’Meara)
    RUC: N. Naitanui, M. Leuenberger (B. Grundy, J. Witts)
    FWD: L. Franklin, S. Johnson, M. Pavlich, H. Bennell, D. Zaharakis, M. LeCras, M. Nicoski (S. Kerridge, B. Macaffer)
    CASH LEFT: $2,800

    A rating and suggestions please, I know I probably won’t fit it in the salary cap but, it is only my first attempt.

    Also, I have questions about Dale Morris (bench option, will play), Brad Symes (If anyone knows why he didn’t play this year please tell me) and ROK in the midfield.

  • Robinson or Stanley

  • For all the people who want to know the approximate prices for next year multiply their average by 5,143. You will get Dane Swan priced at $687,100 as well as Ablett for $641,300. Note: To make it easier for yourself if a player is going to get discounted first discount their average so you’re not working with big numbers.

  • TEAM NAME: Dogs Be Doggin!
    DEF: B. Goddard, J. Grimes, B. Gibbs, B. Reilly, B. Houli, N. Bock, Plowman (J. Pittard, S. Docherty)
    MID: D. Swan, G. Ablett jnr, T. Cotchin, S. Pendlebury, L. Ball, Whitfield (B. Prismall, J. O’Meara)
    RUC: N. Naitanui, M. Leuenberger (B. Grundy, J. Witts)
    FWD: L. Franklin, M. Pavlich, J. Lewis, D. Zaharakis, M. LeCras, A. Krakouer, M. Nicoski (S. Kerridge, B. Macaffer)
    CASH LEFT: $500,400

    • It would be great if we could all have those three pies in the midfield, but even without knowing the byes I can say that they are going to cause you some problems, all being out at the same time. Perhaps downgrade Ball to a rookie, bank the cash and tweak some of your bench options. I don’t think Kerridge will do too well, and no guarantee about Prismall’s job security if the Bombers go hard in trade week. Perhaps one more premo in defense. Reilly and Houli are great POD’s but perhaps just pick one and upgrade the other to a Premo.

      Not a bad attempt. Your rucks are the same as mine at the moment.

  • What do you guys think about this? Feedback is appreciated

        Don’t mention the rucks and look at the 2013 mbr theory page to see based on how last year’s byes were made up who will have byes at what time
        Cheers.

    • Don’t go with Talia man. He only averaged 35 for the year. That’s like getting Dawson

  • Thomas Couch is certainly risky. In fact, a like for like option would be Adelaide’s Crouch. He went through the GWS mini-draft and is eligible to play this year. Take a look at this guy.

    Some options might or might not work depending on the prices of my rookies.

  • Who do you guys think I should go for. Mitchell (don’t really know who this guy is. Just that a lot of people have him) or Hrovat (averaged 25.2 disposals in the U18’s Championship)

    • Tom Mitchell (swans) and Doherty (lions) would have to be selected next year I would think.

      Both have had injuries over the year, but will benefit from having the year in the system.

    • Out of the three mentioned: Docherty, Hrovat, Mitchell (won’t get games…)

      Don’t mention the rucks and look at the 2013 mbr theory page to see based on how last year’s byes were made up who will have byes at what time
      Cheers.

    At the moment I’m very happy with my team. I only have one query. Should I get Crouch or Graham (not considering the byes). We all know who Crouch is (second picked in the mini-draft) while Graham is a unique rookie who costs $96,200 and averaged 25 disposals at the U18′s Championships. Which one. I’ll love to hear your thoughts. Could you also give my team a rating. Cheers.

    Toy is an interesting one, could slot straight into the Western Bulldogs backline if the deal gets done. I’ve chosen Goldstein purely because of H-Mac and Pedersen’s pending departures, and he will improve yet again, along with the whole North Melbourne team. My forward line looks a bit messy, any thoughts on how I could improve it?

    Cheers lads!
