NAB Challenge AFL Fantasy Hype Team #2

I’ve put together another Hype Team based on performances over the NAB Challenge and practice matches. This is obviously not the be all and end all of AFL Fantasy squads, but it’s certainly a good base and it shows off some of the guys who are in form at the moment.

Discuss your squad in My Teamclick here.

It’s missing some guys that will make up my squad and there are quite a few other guys who have had some pretty decent NAB form that warrant selection in a side like this.

There’s only $8,500 left in the kitty… I just wanted to spend up for the sake of it. It’s not going to be my side at all, so I’ve given zero thought to bye round strategy but in the midfield, I have tried to make it guns and rookies – except for Shiels – to go with a structure that will more resemble my starting squad. Also, it’s not a round one special either. Just a squad!

I’m going to stop writing stuff as they say a picture paints a thousand words, add some to the comments.

Discuss which players in this side will be in your squad for this year and any other blokes that have torn it up over their three matches that are knocking on the door of selection.

  • No Macrae?

    • Yeah – it was my whole ‘staying away from midpriced players in the midfield’ strategy that kept him out.

      • No Dunstan either? I can see that fitting him in would have been difficult though.

    im not sold on M.Wright and viv
    all thoughts appreciated cheers! ;)

    • A really goo dplace to post this would be: http://dreamteamtalk.com/?p=28948 – I even linked it in the article! :)

    • Seriously Jayden, never been to the DTtalk website before? Didn’t know there was another page to post this query? Or are you just being plain rude?

      Thanks for the article Warnie. Love these looks at what a team would be based purely on pre-season form. But Higgins… He will divide us all until he retires…

  • would probably go with either Hutchings/Rockliff over Deledio, and then Mumford over Ryder

    but okay…
    my RDT team currently has 14 of them (Griffths/Laidler competing for one bench spot with Georgiou in the other, and Derickx/Currie competing for R4)

  • Its a pretty strong team.

    Nothing stands out as a poor choice

  • Good to know that this isn’t your team, I thought u would fit Rocky and Watson in there somewhere

  • Thanks Warnie. Is Griffths in Richmond best 22?

  • How many patsies will be suckered in to picking Higgins? (Besides me?)

    • I plan on being burnt just one more time for old times sake!
      Its fantasy and not dream team so different competition, technically not been burnt before!
      (Attempting to justify his selection again)

      • I like your thinking pinky! After reading today’s article on the Dog’s practice match against the Blues – Higgins is AGAIN on my pre-season radar.

    • Look at Higgins this way – he is fitter & healthier than he has been for years. He is priced very low and lets say he averages 90 odd for the first 5/6 weeks he will rise $150k in value. Plus with 2 trades each week could be a unique cash cow – I’m picking him.

  • Thanks for posting that Warnie, you and the lads have done a fantastic job this Pre-Season, love your work.

    I have got that exact forward line at the moment, Higgins has just found his way in for Daisy Thomas, shuffling Caddy-shack into the midfield.

    I just hope there’s not a Karnezis among my mid-priced picks this year…

  • What about Vince and Darling?

  • Looking for more people to join.
