Carlton AFL Fantasy Prices 2016

With each AFL Fantasy team price reveal, Peter from aflratings.com.au takes a look at five potential targets from each club. Click here to read Roy’s look at the Blues over on AFL.com.au.

Top 5 Potential Targets – Carlton

Patrick Cripps MID $477K

Cripps was enormous for the Blues averaging 23.7 Disposals playing 20 games in 2015, unlucky not to win the Rising Star Award next season he should be able to improve his numbers again with better midfield support.  Cripps only hit 100pts in 3 games but 2 of them exceed 120pts, very much like his chances averaging mid-high 90’s in 2016.

PC4

Ed Curnow MID $442K

Curnow will not be a popular pick in 2016, but considering his finish to the 2015 season he is worth the once over look. Curnow averaged 103.3pts in his last 3 games of 2015, he averaged  27.3 Disposals over those 3 games well up on his season average of 21.7. The scary part for taking Curnow will be the number of games he scored below 80pts last season, but he has plenty of upside if his late 2015 season form continues in to 2016.

EC4

Bryce Gibbs MID $449K

Gibbs will be the target for many entering the new AFL Fantasy season, he is coming off his worst average since his first season back in 2007. Despite being injured and missing 12 games last season Gibbs has been resilient over his 9 year career, 2015 was only the second time he failed to play 20 games (2013: 19 games). Gibbs prospects of returning back to a 100pt average are good considering the potential under Bolton to increase scoring at the Blues, he should be more than a potential prospect for many coaches in 2016.

BG4

Marc Murphy MID $544K

Almost an obvious choice as the prime target for the Blues, but last year proved he was not a popular choice for many coaches with a very low ownership rate. Murphy hit 100pts in 9 of his 19 games in 2015, but the not so obvious statistic comes after Mick Malthouse was removed as Carlton Coach where he averaged 105.8pts per game (2015 Ave 98.3). Under Brett Ratten Murphy averaged 106.6pts and under Malthouse he averaged 90.3pts, he has massive upside in 2016 under Bolton.

MM4

Andrew Phillips RUCK/FWD $225K

Phillips makes his way on to the list as a potential target for a few reasons, the first being an opportunity with a new club and a new Carlton coach who has a clean slate to start a fresh program. Secondly, injuries could play a big part for the chances of Phillips playing considering the injury prone presence of Kreuzer at the Blues. Only 14 games in to his career Phillips has shown he is capable at AFL Level, definitely a player to consider filling out those final few roster spots. A must watch in Pre-season games.

  • That Marc Murphy stat is awesome. Makes me want him!

  • Jed Lamb worth a pre season watch at that price IMO

  • hard to justify Cripps (and Gibbs) over a combo like Jaeger and Crouch

    • honestly only Simpson/Docherty and Gorringe appeal to me

      Simpson/Docherty because they’re defs, and I don’t quite know what we’re working with down there
      and Gorringe solely as an R3 (although he should only get games when Krooz gets injured)

  • I’d take Cripps over the injury prone brigade any day of the week. Kid is only improving.

    I also think Bolton will give them a more Hawthornesque style that should see Simpson and Docherty rack up lots of +6’s.

  • Can’t see getting Kerridge at that price and Daisy will be hard to fit in. Maybe Wright over Kerridge? And does anyone know when the next lot will come out? Is it weekly or daily? Thanks

  • It have to be daily or at least a 3 a week, weekly would take over 4 months with 18 teams. I think gibbs and cripps are a lock

  • Warnie,
    any idea as to when the RDT values may get leaked as well?

    • RDT Team Picker is released on Weds (16-12) and drawing board is updated then too

      all DPPs, all players, all positions, all prices – the lot
      the positions will be the same across the board, so watch out for the ‘how did he get DPP?’ posts

      • Thanks Sam. Can’t wait.

        • Just for curiosity, did a team on Monty’s fanplanner. From past experience left $1,000,000 in balance as history has shown that to be the case. Will be interesting to see how accurate that is.

  • Cripps and Gibbs have a lot of potential increase in them, but I feel there are cheaper players that can go just as well. Murphy is in the group under Beams/Heppell/Priddis/Fyfe etc and so is not worth it at this stage. Simpson could be a premo back again, but I wouldn’t back him in at this stage. Docherty is interesting. I genunely believe he has the talent to become a premo back. Kreuzer could become a premo ruck, but injury prevents him from being picked over the likes of Sinclair. Plenty of decent midpricers around in Thomas, Wright, Kerridge and Walker. Rookies also seem to be a good place to look in Byrne, Sumner and Lamb
