  • Team Name:JTs Guns
    Round 11 Scores:1786
    How many did you have playing:18
    Studs:Fyfe, Swan & Ebert
    Duds:None really. Yeo with 58 was lowest score
    On the Chopping Block: Upgrades only
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Come equal 1st in Moneyball on Saturday. Nice.

    • Has everyone forgotten Leigh Montagna. Last 4 games 110+ and only one score just under 100 this year

  • Leave a Fantasy/AFL related interesting Fact/Figure as a reply to this comment, and i will select a few of the best to Feature in Monday night’s “The Numbers” here on DTtalk.

    • Blicavs had 12 tackles which is very impressive for a ruckman/midfielder

      • Goldy has the most 70s of the top 5 ruckman, but also the most 120+s

        • Tom Mitchell and Nat Fyfe have the highest lowest score of anyone in the AFL.

          • Really? That is an interesting fact, and i’ll check it, but if its true i’ll include it for sure

    • Sandi’s 70 hitouts.

      • Yep this definitely has to be mentioned! Great Stat

        • What about Melbournes 21st successive loss at etihad!

          They haven’t won there since it was called Telstra dome :)

        • What about the fact fact that, of the top 5 individual scores this weekend, 3 were Essendon players? A 50 point inept display – someone in that team is not pulling their weight. Top 5 were Stanton 153, Adams 146, Montagna 140, Merrett 137 & Heppell 132.

          • I think this stat proves essendon keep kicking sideways and to each other getting cheap +6 but don’t do anything with the ball

    • 5 – Consecutive tons by the original DT PIG Dane Swan, which is currently the longest streak in the AFL. Montagna, Dangerfield, Ellis and Gaff are equal second with 4 tons on the trot each.

  • Round 11 Scores: 1512
    How many did you have playing: 17
    Studs: Shaw, Newnes, A. Pearce, Ox, Heppell, Blicavs
    Duds: Clurey, Sidey (C), Barlow
    On the Chopping Block: 2 of Barlow, Newnes, Saad, Ox
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: This week should be my strongest in fwd and def, but mids will be near on decimated! Let’s hope there is no carnage!

  • Round 11 Scores: 1798
    How many did you have playing: 18
    Studs: Hibbo, Newnes, Pendles, Fyfe, Heppell, Parker, Ebert, Goldy, Mummy, Swan
    Duds: Tarrant and Barlow
    On the Chopping Block: Tarrant, McCarthy and the injured/non-selected: Krak, Glenn
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Goldy for Belly, best trade this year. have climbed 6000 places.

  • Team Name: Macca’s Ball Magnets
    Round 11 Scores: 1474
    How many did you have playing: 16
    Studs: Ox, Parker, Neale, Swan, Titch, Heppell, Goldy, Saad
    Duds: Yeo, Armo(c), Gray, Dumont (sub)
    On the Chopping Block: TBC, Lumumba, Kelly (Adelaide)
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Lift Armo (c)
    Wasn’t too great a score but only had 16 and mids fired!

  • Team Name: 49 Shades of Robbie Gray
    Round 11 Scores: 1545
    How many did you have playing: 15… FIFTEEEEEEN!!
    Duds: Yeo, Selwood, Shiel
    On the Chopping Block: Grundy, Belly both gone to R11 rucks Sauce and Kreuzer
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Alright, deep breath. I’ve tried to understand what he does. I’ve tried to explain it and justify it but I just can’t anymore. JOEL F**KING SELWOOD is a “champion of the game” Hutchy reckons, “led from the front” the Friday night commentary team thought. WELL NOOOOO HE DIDN’T. 66!! 66 POINTS!!!! FROM A “PREMIUM”??? You are JOKING! Looked to be back on the horse and moving into that “2nd half of the season” form (crap excuse by the way when you’re a “champion of the game”) last week with 120 only to dish up 66 in a WIN v a Port team who’s tagger HAS RETIRED!!!!

    Shiel on thin ice and Yeo on debut just pitiful. Both need a lift. Fielding 17 next week.

  • I liked the movie Warm Bodies. Especially because of Teresa Palmer. God she’s beautiful.

    Anyway, scored 1670 from 17 players. Can’t complain I guess. Coulda been much worse. Should have 17-19 kicking about next week (assuming nobody dies midweek).

  • 1755 from 17 in RDT
    1453 from 15 in Fantasy
    Really happy in both considering i was down on numbers. Have plenty of cash to upgrade Belly > S.Martin in both teams

  • Round 11 Scores: 1533
    How many did you have playing: 16
    Studs: Mundy, Hibbo, Newnes, Ox, Parker (C), Neale, Tichell, Swan
    Duds: Yeo, Swallow (Ok, you were 1 point off my acceptable limit, but you were 77 at 3/4 time!), Dumont (Up yours Crock of s**t)
    On the Chopping Block: My plan of Saad to Hamling, Ox/Newnes to Hodge works… but they were all good and I feel bad culling two of them. McInnes won’t play again, but no downgrades will cash me up enough for anything worthwhile. Plus I need two r12 guys gone for moderate competence next week.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Not too bad after the teams culled my 20 down to 16, but next week will be the same boat, I’m stuffed.

  • 1676 from 16 players.

    All my premos were studs esp Heppell, Hibberd, Newnes, Swan, Fyfe and Goldy.

    Only dud was Colqhoun but still acceptable.

  • Team Name:Lewie’s Troops
    Round 11 Scores:1576
    How many did you have playing:16
    Studs:Swan,Goldy,Ebert,Heppell,Parker,Fyfe (c)
    Duds:Clurey, Yeo, Barlow
    On the Chopping Block: Time will tell…..
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Better scire than i anticipated considering only had 16 with lots of spuds.

  • Team Name: Team Apocalypse
    Round 11 Scores: 1890
    How many did you have playing: 18
    Studs: Boston, KK, Ebert, HeppD, Fantasia, Swan, Titch, Treloar, Pendles
    Duds: Armitage (Or Vince for tagging him)
    On the Chopping Block: Not sure yet
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Seemed to avoid all the carnage this week, which is a first. Maybe I can finally buy that lotto ticket

  • Round 11 Scores: 1662
    How many did you have playing: 17
    Studs: Shaw, Newnes, Parker, Hepple, Ebert, Goldstein (Debut in my team), Swan (C) and Mitchell
    Duds: Yeo, Dumont, BARLOW!!,
    On the Chopping Block: RD12 Bye players need to wait for teams.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Not too bad. Stock standard.

  • Team Name: Goatsea Marathon
    Round 11 Scores: 1631
    How many did you have playing: 16
    Studs: McDonald, Saad, Fyfe, Parker, Heppell, Newnes, Goldy, Nic Nat, Swan
    Duds: YEOOOO
    On the Chopping Block: V’Berg and probably Newnes so I can bring in Hodge
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Expected carnage for the first bye round… But didn’t get any. Going into round 12 with 19 players, then should have 22+ for final bye round. Reconsidering Yeo as a top 6 defender!!

  • Team Name: Bloodbath N Beyond
    Round 11 Scores: 1421
    How many did you have playing: 16
    Studs: Pendles, Mundy, Hibbo, nic nat, swan, buddy, fantasia

    Studs:Newnes, Goldy, Heppell, Ebert, titchell, hibberd, parker
    Duds: STEVEN (C), yeo, SEEDSMAN,
    On the Chopping Block: SEEDSMAN :@ Mccarthy
    Carnage struck me really bad this week, happy to score that even with 14 players, went from 2k-7k but am well prepared for round 12 and 13! hopefully climb the rankings

  • Team Name: Balsam’s Best
    Round 11 Scores: 1786
    How many did you have playing: 17
    Studs: Pretty much everyone, but Boston tonning up was good
    Duds: All the outs on Thursday night… Vandenberg, Newton, Amon, McInnes. For those on the park, only Yeo and R Gray failed to get projected scores, and then not by much.
    On the Chopping Block: Anyone with a round 12 bye… I’m going to struggle with numbers this week unless there a few people named as “In” next week.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: In one way, my best round of the season. Only four players (of those actually playing) failed to hit 90, and 10 hit the ton. Up 1600 places overall to be at 2235.

  • Name: First time lucky
    Rank: 175
    Score: 1734

    Playing – 15+ Dumont

    Studs: Stanton, Blicavs, Watson, Fyfe
    Duds: Dumont

    Chopping Block: Stanton and Watson- plan was to upgrade to lewis and Hodge/Picken anyway… They’ve just made me money

    • Hey mate just checked out your team… How the hell are you ranked 175 with only 13 premiums? Good job either way, you must have had a real good run with rookie rotations.

      I on the other hand have rotten luck. Upgrading to my 19th premo this week and still outside top 1k

      • Its kind of on purpose I’ve done that, I went for solid backbone options that I knew always played a decent game – Dangerfield, Fyfe, Hannebery etc… and stuck with my rookies when most other people ditched them, I stuck with solid players who were getting what I needed to score 2k a week – Tom Bell and the likes

        I’ve also not been afraid to ditch a premo – I’ve been chasing scores, if I dont think Lewis will score well, he went out. Hasnt always worked, but I back my gut.

        Rookies helped a lot, if a Saad or Oxley score 70, I’m happy, and will upgrade a Tex Walker to a Gray instead.

        First time playing of course, will more than likely not finish like this

  • Team Name: The Mizfits
    Round 11 Scores: 1611
    How many did you have playing: 18
    Studs: Mundy, Newnes, Hibbard, Ebert (C), Gaff, Saad, Goldy, Swan, Mitchell, Fantasia.
    Duds: Yeo, Clurey, Tarrant.
    On the Chopping Block: a round 12 bye player
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: happy with my score gained 4000 rankings now have to wait for teams to figure out which rd 12 bye player I should get rid of.

  • Team Name: Mundy Morning Cooking Club
    Round 11 Scores: An even 1500
    How many did you have playing: 16
    Studs: Mundy (C), Heppell, Parker, Swan, Boston, Oxley, Saad, Newnes, Titch
    Duds: Clurey, Selwood (!!!)
    On the Chopping Block: Two players out this week – currently Schade to Byrne and Oxley to Boyd
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Pretty happy with my score, not happy with selections. Could have had 19 playing with any luck but instead have another red arrow in the rankings – planning since preseason makes no difference when you have luck like mine!

  • Thoughts on Mitch Grigg from Adelaide, BE of just 41 and a last round 5 of 87?

    Thinking of going Vandenberg to Him?

    • Yep gun like the way he plays, settled into the senior side and now wants to improve his disposal efficiency and kicking for goal can only get better

  • Team Name: Nevernotspurs
    Round 11 Scores: 1423
    How many did you have playing: 14
    Studs: *ADAMS*, Mundy, Shaw, Saad, Oxley, Rischitelli, Watson, Titchell,
    Duds: Walters, Sidebottom(Harsh but 2nd score under 90 in a row)
    On the Chopping Block: Bellchambers, Grundy, Walters, Saad, Bennell, Clark,
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Fuck you Bennell.

  • Team Name: Funked up Kicks
    Round 11 Scores: 1749
    How many did you have playing: 19
    Studs: Parker (C), Goldy, Ebert, Swanny, Hibberd, Titchell, Newnes, Oxley and Fantasia
    Duds: Yeo, Nichols
    On the Chopping Block: Rockliff, Kelly, McCarthy, Cey
    Moved up 9000 ranks so thats good happy with this weeks performances and finally picked a captain that was one of my top 3 scores. Get keen for new DPP’s woo

  • Team Name: SoDak SuperSonics
    Round 11 Scores: 1347
    How many did you have playing: 15! Went from 19 available at start of week to 13 by lockout before trades.
    Studs: Newnes, Pendles, Swan, Parker, Treloar, Buddy
    Duds: BARLOW, Yeo, Clurey, Dumont, Tarrant
    On the Chopping Block:
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Had a perfect bye structure in place that was decimated this week. My studs are more like people who did what they were expected to do. Duds killed me. Moved back 6000 spots in rankings. Absolute carnage.

  • Couldn’t make changes in time, so had Bell C playing and Adams on the bench.

    Woe is me.

  • Need to upgrade 1 of Oxley or Saad, both coming off good scores but who woukd be best to hold for another week or 2?

    • Ox is the one to hold 100%. Saad’s a solid enough bench player who generally hits 60, but his BE is still near his average and he doesn’t have Ox’s ceiling, so you’re not losing much cutting him now, Ox should have at least one good rise left this week, unless he’s due for his 30 point failure next game.
