Why should I pick him?

When at his best, Gibbs has proven he can match it with the Fantasy elite, twice averaging 107 during his nine year career and reaching triple figures on three occasions.

Gibbs is massively under-priced after falling victim to Mick Malthouse’s real life version of Space Jam where he played himself as a Monstar and sucked all the ability out of the Blues best players, leaving former stars of the game looking so lost you would swear they have never played the game before.

This resulted in Gibbs dropping his average by 20 points per game from the previous season as Micks stranglehold  tightened.

Despite only playing ten games last year, Gibbs has been an extremely durable player over his career, including six years where he has not missed a game.

From all reports, he has enjoyed the fresh start and pre Christmas program driven by new couch Brendan Bolton and he will flourish in the new improved environment.

Why shouldn’t I pick him?

I would be lying if I didn’t admit there was some concern over Gibbs playing the lowest number of games for a season last year, as well as recording the second lowest average of his career, falling well behind all but his debut season.

Although I am excited by what a change of coaching staff will do for his role and ability to recapture his best form, there is no guarantee that Bolton has Gibb’s Fantasy scoring at the forefront of his thoughts and priorities.

He has a man bun and wears long sleeves sometimes.

Deck of DT Rating.

KING – I don’t throw terms like ’My Boy’ around very often, and Gibbs was my original (Before unfaithfully disowning him under the Malthouse regime following the growth of his ponytail). I am 100% committed to jumping back on this season and I have complete faith his ability will return (as it did for Charles Barkley) and he will cut his hair.

It’s a real ‘bite the index finger moment’ for me… welcome back Gibbsy.

  • There’s a party over here, a party over there
    Wave ya hands in the air, shake ya deriere
    These three words when you’re gettin’ busy
    Whoomp, there it Gibbs

    On that note, Gibbs can stay on the team of carlton supporters, and carlton supporters only

  • Track in NAB Cup but I can’t see myself selecting him

  • I will watch him but i just think there is better value like Libba, Crouch O’Meara

  • In the same boat as O’Meara, a great pick, but I’m going with Crouch and Libba as first picked in this price bracket.

  • What is the schedule for the release of the rest teams prices for fantasy? This is getting boring.

  • Why is it that the last two players in the deck have had their “fantasy” price shown but not their “RDT” price? I would hope that DTTalk is not about to become a “fantasy” only site?

    • Probably through Roy and Calvin’s laziness. Haha. We do, between the three of us however, are fantasy through and through due to our involvement with the AFL.

  • Gibbs is an interesting one. He’s in that bracket with a lot of other tasty underpriced MIDs, and he’d have to have one hell of a NAB Challenge to sway me away from some of those names. It’s a shame that his days as a defender are over.
