AFL Teams 2015: Round 16

Its round 16, and its been awhile since we had a normal round without byes or a partial lockout. So you can relax and not stress over weekend selections as you actually have until tomorrow night for the first game!
There are 30 changes to Fri / Sat teams and 8 confirmed outs so far for Sunday squads.

Fantasy Relevant Omissions :

Alex Browne (Concussion) – Rookie POD some may have
Joel Selwood – 1 week on the sidelines
David Swallow (Knee) – unlucky, was looking a decent POD.
Dylan Shiel (Knee) – some had as a POD.
Taylor Adams (Suspension) – two weeks on the sidelines.
Clancee Pearce (Omitted) – bad to worse for his owners
Bryce Gibbs (pectoral muscle) – if you are that team who has him, you need to trade.
Jasper Pittard (Ankle) – another pod who could hurt a couple of teams
Cam Ellis-Yolmen (Omitted), Nathan Van Berlo (Omitted) – CEY out painful especially for those who kept him as a possible keeper over Cripps.

Fantasy Relevant Inclusions :

Kyle Langford – with so few rookie inclusion some may consider.
Mitch Duncan, Jake Kolodjashnij – back in for the cats, Duncan a possible POD.
Joshua Glenn – About time says those like me who still have him on their bench.
Zac Smith – Is he still DT relevant?
Levi Greenwood – Big in for pies, but what will his role be?
Brad Walsh – another new blues rookie.
Sam Docherty – Back in the team for those who kept him.
Jarryd Roughead – Big forward is back, great news.
Stefan Martin – back from his suspension to the relief of the many teams who have him.
Nathan Krakouer – Some teams still have Krak, and he has still got some value to make.
Jonathon Griffin – ruck rookie, stuck on a few teams bench in r4.
Bailey Dale – rookie priced fwd.

New Rookies :

Jonathon Griffin
FRE (Ruck $142,000 AF, $248,200 RDT)
JS is obviously not great, and Aaron Sandilands is still the main ruck.

Bradley Walsh
CARL (Mid $120,000 AF, $102,900 RDT)
The cycle of renewal continues at blues with another rookie named. Hes in for Gibbs, that could be a good sign for his JS.

Joshua Glenn
GCS (Mid $177,000 AF, $126,900 RDT)
No hes not a new rookie, but hes been on the sidelines so long may as well be. On the bubble in RDT.

Kyle Langford
ESS (Fwd $231,000 AF $142,900 RDT)
Only really mentioning due to lack of rookies. Hes on the bubble in RDT.

Bailey Dale
WBD (fwd $192,000 AF, $176,200 RDT)
Still rookie priced after 6 games, avoid unless you have not much other choice.

Caleb Daniel, Riley Knight, Josh Prudden, James Harmes, Brayden Maynard, Toby Nankervis, Nick Holman, Jack Redpath, Tom Downie, Rory Lobb, Zak Jones, Tom Fields are some of the other rookies listed, make sure you check sunday lists tomorrow.

Jesse Palmer, Rory Atkins, Hugh Goddard are new rookies named on the sunday extended bench, although is Goddard really new? hes been on the extended bench all year it seems.

Other Thoughts :

Levi Greenwood finally gets a game for the pies, but what will his role be? Some pundits are concerned this will lead to more forward time for Swan. In the meantime he may just slot into Adams role at the club.

Its great to see Jarryd Roughead back from his cancer scare.

  • Saad :(

  • Looking to bring in Caleb Daniel. Who do I trade, amon or Glenn?

    • Dude, Glenn is in this week.

      • Yes, all 3 are. I’m just going on Jeppa’s advice and looking to bring in Daniel. I’m looking for rooks who will generate the most cash.

    • All 3 on extended benches. Don’t think you will gain much sideways trading cash rookies

  • Can someone tell me what Ox’s RDT BE is please?

  • Oxley – Malceski/Smith (D5)
    Kav – Zac Williams (D6)
    Oxley – McVeigh
    Kav – JKolo (play Fields at D6)
    Will look to trade Ebert next round or upgrade colq

  • How long is pittard and Saad going to be out for????

  • Fantasy – Ok dilemma – I GOT ABLETT THIS WEEK – But now see Mitch Duncan he has 3 round avg of 111 which includes a 60 odd in game he was injured was getting more mid time now with Selwood sidelined albeit for one week and SJ playing forward is Duncan gunna go ape shit like in game before injury 133& 137?

    – he is 90k cheaper than GAZ

    – only thing is i think that was with no bartel correct me please

    -then again it is Gaz we are talkingabut and feel safer with him in my sde


    • Gaz, every day.

    • Duncan has been injured for last 9-10 weeks, you gotta give him a game (he may even cop a vest this week on return).

      If he tons up this week , trade him in next.

  • Who to trade out, Stevens from Bulldogs with possible injury cloud or thurlow under performing or the up n down Oxley

  • With no Elliot I can see Swan spending quite a bit of time up forward.

    I’m nervous about making him captain now.

  • Sheesus dat queue for Lords

  • Steele to the mids and which one of Dumout/Kav out for Daniels in the forward line

  • Swan or Rocky as captain? Worried about Rocky being tagged and Swan playing forward. Also is Mitch Duncan worth a look? Or should I get Barlow? Duncan has a 3 game average of 111 including an injured 60?

    • Rocky, tag won’t affect him the way Swan playing forward does.
      Mitch Duncan’s 3 game average was from round 5-7. You would need a look first imo. I’m assuming you need someone under 500k to consider those 2? Look at Ryan Griffen or Dayne Zorko as better options.

    • Rocky Balboa

    • Are you watching the footy at all or just comparing fantasy scores?!
      -coming back from broken foot with 9 rounds out and no Vfl, so no way is he match fit.
      -Cats have vested players returning from injury this season.
      -Cats have been playing rubbish, with few players scoring well.
      -No Selwood means increased chance of a tag.

      Look at Griffen, 3rnd average of 108 & 49be

  • @Euman I feel your pain. Duncan or no Duncan?

  • Lads, some thoughts would be appreciated… Rank – Mid 500’s Team Value as below $13,168,000. Zero in Change to Spend…

    DEF – Hodge, Boyd, Mundy, Yeo, Newnes, K Kolodjashnij (Fields, Hamling)
    MID – Stevn, Lewis, Pendlebury, Dangerfield, Beams, Parker, Rockclifrr, Cripps (Boston, Dumont)
    RCK – Jacobs, Naitanui (Griffin, Cox)
    FWD – Swan, Martin, Mitchell, Gray, Bontempelli, McKernan (Krakour, Lambert)

    Includes – Schade to Fields & Wallis to Lewis !!! DO I make the most off the downgrades available. Big league game against the only other bloke in top 1000 and need to win

  • have to start Amon or Ah Chee, one will probably get the vest, which one ?

  • GAJ or Hodge in? Tough call

  • RDT question for you folks :-)

    This is my Team below:
    DEF: Newnes, KK, Hibberd, Simpson, Oxley, Ibbotson (Saad, Hamling)
    MID: Pendles, Fyfe, Heppell, Ebert, Parker, Lewis, Rockliff, Hodge (Boston, Amon, Kav)
    RUCKS: Goldy, Martin (Downie)
    FWD: Swan, Martin, Gray, Bont, Mitchel, Steele (Hogan. Krakouer)

    Do I trade Saad to Malceski or Birchall? Not enough money to go any higher… Or do I move Hodge to my Defence via DPP Saad & get a Mid (but who?)
