Stay tuned to DT TALK this week for all of the great AFL Dream Team advice you could ever need!


  • Team Name: The Wookiee
    Round 9 Scores: 1529
    How many players: 18
    League Results: not great
    Studs: Langdon,Gibson,Swallow,Hibberd,Ablett,Dusty
    Duds: Rocky donut,zorks,stevie,mcV,hooker,nroo these big names averaged 41.5 between them!
    On the Chopping Block:too may to think about
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: this was looking like my strongest bye week…not!
    As i said in the other thread, mt team has too many reverse rookies, guys who start with a premium price and hack their way to a rookie price!

  • Thoughts on griffiths to bews and polec to jelwood

    • That’s what I’m doing. Bews be is -20 so he should make a tonne of money

  • Should I trade Crouch to Selwood, which leaves Polec on field, or Polec to Johnson/Pendlebury/Swan and have Crouch on field ? Not quite sure. Cheers

  • Overall dropped from about 500 to about 2700. Bring on next week!

  • Crouch to selwood

  • cheers jacob

  • Is it worth doing Polec -> Jelwood?
    Or should I Kolodjashnij to Jaensch?

  • Can anyone say why tex lost money after getting 79? At $282k or whatever, surely his be was well below 80 as opposed to above as it apparently was?

    • Yeah I just asked that on the previous page of comments. He went in to the game with a BE of 57 so after scoring 79 should have gone up in price. Something not right.

      I wonder if there’s an issue with some other BE’s as well…Cunningham scored just under his BE and lost $5k but his BE for this upcoming week is showing as 0!

      • Yeah same thing happened last week with Cunningham. Got 31, be of 30 but lost a couple of grand

      • OK so looks like all the bye players are listed with a BE of 0. Annoying because you need to see what it is if you are going to trade them out in terms of whether they still have money to make the following week.

  • That makes no sense. Tasty downgrade from zorko I reckon. Mmmmm.
    BTW hallahan should milk some cash is -13 BE and looks to have a spot for next few weeks atleast

  • I’m probably a bit behind but I havent had to use it yet this year. Is it possible to do three way dpp swaps on fantasy?

  • U can involve 3 players in a trade.

  • So you can’t involve 4?

  • Not sure mate. I don’t think so. Haven’t tried it.

  • Ebert or Cornes?

  • I was set on trading Dunstan and Cunningham out this week for jelwood. But seeing as thou after trades il only have 17 this wknd. My thoughts have changed. Option 1 Cunningham to charlie Cameron Dunstan to selwood
    Or option 2 Zorko to walker
    Dunstan to selwood
    Next week I could then piss off Cunningham and Robertson.
    My team this round should be
    Simpson Swallow Bartel Kelly Langford
    Ablett, Pendles, Beams, Cotchin, Selwood Polec, Hallahan
    Jacobs **Currie**
    Danger, Cloke , Martin

  • Team Name: Liam’s Boys
    Round 9 Scores: 1850
    How many players: 17
    League Results: Decent
    Studs: Dangerfield, Parker, Dustin, Gablett, Swallow, Cotchin, Beams, Langdon
    Duds: Zorko, McVeigh. (Had a few rookies to fill in for bye players who scored <50)
    On the Chopping Block: Zorko
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Fairly happy with my result this week. Zorko coming straight out, not sure who for yet. Team is shaping up nicely, depth everywhere. Thinking of downgrading Zorko to Walker and upgrading either Polec or Macrae to a premium mid.

  • Hodgeys HERO’S 2015 this week in AFL Fantasy. Overall ranking 1152 so good improvement am thinking Polec to j selwood this week. I am wondering whether to keep N Jones still 103 average but not sure if he can sustain it for the season? Cheers All

  • What kind of scoring system has taylor walker who scored 79points and valued at less than 300k actually losing money on that performance? The maths here is just wrong.

  • bring in jelwood or danger , also who is the best rookie to bring in do you think ?

    • Cameron, Bews or Beams

      • also, tough choice. I’d probably go Danger though, simply due to DPP

    • Bews and Cameron have negative BE’s and should make serious cash. Jelwood be is 95 and Dangers is 74 so both should go up in value. Probably safest to get on danger

  • Which one?
    A: Robertson > Bews, R.Shaw > Jelwood (18 players exactly, better team in the long run with more premos)
    B: Montagna > Jelwood, Nroo > Dangerfield (19 players)

    • Get Bews in if he isn’t named sub (you get to see before you trade as it’s the Friday game). Don’t rage trade Monty, he’ll still go big and Jelwood is still risky. Nroo needs to go though

      • i was planning to bring in jelwood before his big score this week. i think he’ll come good in the long run.
        you don’t think nroo will bounce back?

  • Swanny or Jelwood this week??

  • Who’s a higher priority to trade: Crouch or Gleeson

  • my first trade is hickey (injured,bye) to jacobs leaving me with 13k

    What should my scone trade be:

    Rioli (injured) to walker leaving me with 141k
    robertsen (bye) to bews via bartel DPP leaving me with 123k


  • Dr Bruce Reid
    19 players
    Studs: Watson, Hibberd, Barlow, Ablett, Martin, Lagdon, J. Lloyd
    Duds: Johnson, Hooker, Swan, Hampson, Crouch

    Should I trade Hampson to Minson and Crouch to Hallahan ?
