The Bacon Cup – Elite draft 2015

We held our mates draft last night in AFL Fantasy Elite called the “Bacon Cup”… as we love our fantasy pigs. Last week we decided our draft order drawing a runner in the Golden Slipper.

I won’t go into too much about what happened as I’m about to do my DT Shiva draft. I have pick 4, much better than the pick 10 I had last night. Anyway. Check out the table below to see how it all unfolded. It was interesting as quite a few blokes were taking part in their first draft. All in all it was fun and a few have learnt a lot from the night. Best of all the beers were flowing!

Some notes:

  • The first forward went at pick 4 with Stu backing in Dane Swan. Following was Jimmy Bartel (#5 Roy), Dustin Martin (#9 Chop) and Robbie Gray (#11 Chook).
  • Scottie is a Lions fan and backed in Stefan Martin pretty early… some would say stupidly early. I was happy to take Sam Jacobs with my second pick (#15).
  • Tit-ed took Dyson Heppell at 18 as the first Bombers. There were a few coaches not scared off by the Bombers.

Below is the draft order in a table. Followed by the teams as drafted.

  • Being a complete n00b to everything draft related in terms of Fantasy Football, I’d love to see you guys make a documentary on the whole process, from the building and recruitment of people into a league, to all the research that goes into it, the banter between you all and the actual draft itself.

    • Yeah – we might have to do that next year! It is a very fun thing to do. Great to get a group of mates involved.

  • Lol at Sigabert – Luke
    Tom Libratore is out for the season!
    Terrible pick

    • Must have auto-picked! Some very interesting/shocking choices in there… even by Calvin! Haha. Thought Greenwood would be right in Rd 1. Ouch.

  • ^ Im liking your team Warnie!
    Jordan Lewis was a steal at pick 10. And You have arguably the best ruckman in Jacobs

  • Draft Elite League on tonight, 6pm WA time!

    5-6-2-5 structure, No Cpts, Snake draft.

    Anyone can join, pretty competitive league with other coaches ranging from Top 100 finishers to ~5000. Should be good fun, have a go if you’ve never tried it before!
