    any feed back would be great

  • Andrew Walker or Brodie Smith?

  • Couple of unique picks for me.

    Def: Newnes, Docherty, K.Kolo, Yeo, Ibbotosn, Whitecross (Z. Jones, Fuller)
    Mid: J.Selwwod, JPK, Sloane, Crouch, Ellis, Biggs, Van Berlo, Freeman (Cripps, Acres)
    Rucks: Nicholls, Kreuzer ((Downie, Cox)
    For: Martin, Swan, Franklin, Adams, T. Lynch, Clark (Redpath, Membrey)

    Both Yeo and Tom Lynch had injury affected games last season which brought down their average.
    I like Biggs, think he will work off the HBF and has scored well in the second tier comp
    Nicholls should carry GC rucks, just not sure on his durability
    B.Ellis should keep improving, although I may drop Tom Mitchell in here.
    Not sold on Rich or Leuenberger

    Any wisdom would be greatly appreciated

    Thoughts?

    • Backs N,D,K and Yeo all good Ibbo and Whitecross dont rate and whitecross not in best 22 unless injuries at Hawks
      mids strong love the picks of crouch and biggs
      interesting choice for rucks sounds like suns have 3 healthy ruckman at moment should be interesting to see who comes out on top there
      not sold on adams myself think bont or kelly will go bigger. like the choice of tommy lynch b4 injury last year was a lock to get you mid 80’s / game think he’s 20+ points lower then where he will be at the end of the year if he stays healthy.
      overall not a bad side

  • Fantasy

    • who is ur 2nd ruck?

      Backline malcheski will be hunted at GC Grimes burnt me too many times Waters gone never to return Hendo good jones Ok

      mids solid dont know whether i would have both rocky and beams though

      fwds ok think u can do better than hogan and boyd however saying that if hogan fit and firing during NAB cup will definitly have a look at him.

    I have hodge for a swap between back and mids
    Suggestions?

  • Anyone considering Dangerfield? Surely he’ll bounce back? At 524k and M5, Should I go with him or O’Meara,Wines,Swallow?

    • If previous years are to be learned from players who r out of contract and haven’t resigned with their clubs have had a shocker of a year ie: Franklin & Cloke to name a couple. However if the crows are winning then there is a possiblity i will pick him up later on.

  • AFL FANTASY

    DEF: Simpson, Smith, Newnes, K.Kolodjashnij, Seedsman, S.Edwards (Dick, Clurey)

    MID: Ablett, Barlow, Pendlebury, Treloar, Wines, Rich, Freeman, Cripps (Dumont, Vandenberg)

    RUC: Leuenberger, Kreuzer (Nankervis, Cox)

    FWD: D.Martin, Gray, Franklin, Adams, J.Martin, Hogan (Krakouer, Lambert)

    2k in the bank

    Any thoughts would appreciated

    • Looks like a pretty well balanced side.

      DEFs – I’m still not convinced about any of the premo backs, Simpson and Smith included.
      MIDs look good – I think Treloar and Wines are in for big ones. Think Cripps could even average 75+ given no McLean, Robinson etc.
      FWDs – not sure about the roles of Adams and Martin but that’s what the NAB is for.

      Only other thing is that $2k might not be enough if you need to do last minute rookie changes/upgrades when sides are picked…

  • Thoughts on Dale Thomas? Finished last year strongly and has reportedly done a pretty full pre-season. Is anyone considering him for around that $390k-$430k range with Bont, Mitchell, Adams etc?

  • Well with Kreuzer going out injured it’s made me look at my side again and make a couple changes.

    Here is the side with Kreuzer.

    D: Simpson, Malceski, Smith, Newnes, H Goddard, Voijo Rainbow, J Kolo, Clurey.
    M: Ablett (C), Pendlebury (VC), D Beams, Treloar, Vince, Rich, Boekhurst, Freeman, Dumont, Vandenberg.
    R: Leuenberger, Kruezer, King, Nankervis
    F: D Martin, Gray, Swan, Adams, Hogan, Clark, McGuane, Lambert.

    Here is the side without Kreuzer, thoughts? Opinions? Help? Suggestions on different players?

    D: Simpson, Smith, Newnes, K Kolo, H Goddard, Voijo Rainbow, J Kolo, Clurey.
    M: Ablett (C), Pendlebury (VC), Sloane, Treloar, Crouch, Rich, Boekhurst, Freeman, Dumont, Vandenberg.
    R: Leuenberger, Naitanui, King, Nankervis
    F: D Martin, Gray, Swan, Adams, Hogan, Clark, McGuane, Lambert.

  • If round one doesn’t count towards points, what’s stoppong people fielding an entire rookie team in the hope of making cash and then changing the whole team for the start of round 2? is that a strategy or?

  • I currently have Rockliff, Beams, Rich, Christensen and Berger… too many lions! Who would you drop first?

    • Christensen, also perhaps look to Rocky post byes, Berger didnt do much on the weekend and will surely be replaced by big Steph

  • Def:Hibberd,Smith, Newnes, henderson, whitecross, jones (N Brown, Hampling)

    MIDS:Ablett, Pendle, Beams, Trelor, Crouch, Van Berlo, Rich, Cripps (Vanderberg, Krakouer)

    Rucks Berger, Kreuzer (King, nankeruis)

    Fwds Martin, swan, christenson, mitchell, adams, hogan ( clark, lambert ) Thoughts please. Cash 10,000

    Happy with my team i know o have to get rid of kreuzer dont real keen on bellchambers..
    To get cash i was thinking about downgrading adams….help please?
