DT Talk Writer’s League

Welcome to a new weekly article. This is the place where you can put a team to the names and check how they’re are travelling in the overall scheme of things.

Here you will see the results of your favourite DT Talk writers and personalities going head to head in an AFL Fantasy league.

Below is a list of the participants with their team names and twitter handles. Be sure to give them a follow, even to just watch the smack talk intensify as the season progresses!

Here is how the Overall ladder looks going into round 3.

The standouts are Warnie and Adzman who have jumped out to the front, managing to dodge most of the major carnage to score over 2000 in both weeks.

Unfortunately on every ladder there has to be a bottom, RLGriffin and Rainman find themselves on ours with a combination of bad luck and speculative picks letting them down. As we know though, these guys are fantastic coaches and will no doubt already have a strategy in place to best utilise their 2 trades a week and make up the difference. With only 500 points separating 1st and last anything can happen!

This week signals the start of head to head competition. This is where things get interesting as I’ve found that it doesn’t really matter where you are on the overall ladder, it can still come down captain choices, bench options and the bounce of the ball.

Here are the match ups for round 1.

Warne Dawgs VS Jeppa’s Boys
Adzman’s Aces
VS anNEALEiation
DestROY
VS Rockstars
Dunny’s Destroyer’s
VS Calvinator
JedAnderson’s Army
VS Tbetta Than You
Griff’s Fury
VS The Running Man
Merv Gray Autos
VS Wrath of McRath
Delerium TeeTees
VS Cousins Coke n Ice
The Rainmen Cometh
 VS The Fear Boners

This is where it all starts. Which coach will finish the season on top? Which coach will have a season to forget? Be sure to check back each week to see the results and follow the guys on twitter to catch the trash talk during the rounds!

  • The fact that my absolutely shocking start to the season is still better than Griff’s team score so far, means that I am not deleting my team just yet.

  • What would also be interesting to see is a record of everyone’s trades each week. I know it’s a bit of work to keep this updated but I’m sure many people would find this interesting and it would improve the site.

    • Cheers for the suggestion, I’ll see what I can do! In the meantime you can always search our teams ;)

    • I’m mega YOLO. Last week was Danger and Robbo out for Barlow and Chappy. A pass/neutral trade at this stage… hoping to be a big win in a couple of weeks.

      My next week trades are even more YOLO. Watch the episode this week for more!

  • Hand up to Hardcore DT league. First league code posted on DT talk. Currently ranked 2nd overall.

  • This weeks dilemma: What to do with Kane Mitchell?
    I was thinking of 2 trades this week;

    Hartlett to Birchall – Birchall is on fire and projected to rise in price next week with a BE of 44 and Hartlett could go either way but has a BE of 106.

    Karnezis to Dwyer – Next I was seriously considering trading out Karnezis to Dwyer for the quick cash grab as he could only be around for the next 2 weeks with so many key Collingwood players returning.

    However, with Kane Mitchell set to lose money in Dream Team this week, so should I stick by Hartlett and cash grab in Neade or Jones? Or should I stick by Kane Mitchell who only needs a BE of 27

    • it all comes down to one question… will he cop the vest?

      • Surely not 3 times in a row….I hope….

        On one hand maybe Hinkley is doing something different, making him a specialist sub, but then again, if he is sub EVERY week, he isn’t going to have the fitness to play out a full game if there are early injuries

        I have him sitting on the bench hoping he has a full game and impresses so much that he doesn’t get the vest again

  • Surprisingly I wouldn’t be at the bottom. 3780 total for me, so I would be just in front of Calvin

  • YOLO?

    More like YATT this year!

  • Warne Dawg, got the same score as you!!!

  • I’d be placed third in this league, I guess that’s a good sign for me early!
