Guns n Rooks v1

Cash left: $14,800

Cash left: $14,800

This team is your standard guns and rookies strategy, which is usually quite effective in BBL Fantasy. Grab six of the most expensive players who you think will score well and then fill the remaining spots with rookie players. I recommend having three of the six as bowlers because there’s less rookie depth there. You batting line should look strong, but you might have to compromise a bit with the bowlers.

Guns n Rooks v2

Cash left: $1,400

This is a very similar team except we’ve given up some wicketkeeper strength to upgrade our bowlers. It’s not a pure guns and rookies strategy, but it gives you a much more reliable bowling unit. At the same time, your bench is still pretty weak – but that’s the price of such a strong on-field team.

Double Round Overload


This team is made up entirely of players who have two games in round one (Thunder, Sixers and Strikers). While it seems impractical – and, you know, it sort of is – with 21 trades and three allowed to be made per week, you could attempt a gamble like this. Maybe be a bit more practical with your bench than I was, but this is certainly a way to go for the overall round winner. The biggest risk here is having too many players from the one team. There’ll always be players that fire and those that flop and you’re basically guaranteeing a little of each with this strategy. You just have to hope they all fire once.

The ‘Obvious’ Team

If there were statistics about who the most picked players were right now, this lot would probably be right up there. It’s a very strong team, but not a team that you’re going to win the competition with. You’ll need your own points of difference to win and while having a few of these players is good, try to vary it up. Having said that, a team like this really doesn’t have any other weaknesses.

My (current) Team

Okay, here’s my team. STOP JUDGING ME. I change my team so often it could be completely different in a week’s time, but I’ve tried to balance picking the obvious players with those in-form or under-priced. It was a struggle to not pick a team with like seven Scorchers players in it. Go on, pick it apart, I’ll fight you all.

Who is the one player in BBL Fantasy that you think is a lock across all teams? Leave your thoughts in the comments and post your teams if you want!

Good luck!



  • Y haven’t you got lynn

  • Is there an app for this?

  • Thoughts on my team?
    Head, Willey, Lynn, mccullum, White(sangka, Patterson)
    Russell, Johnson, bravo, marsh, cummins (Sandhu, Cartwright)

  • Change Lynn to s. Marsh

  • I think the locks to have are Russell, Head, Haddin, Henriques, Marsh and Cummins. Hey Nic, which batsmen should I get out of Blizzard, Patterson or Harris? And do you think Cartwright will play?

    • Nic Negrepontis

      I’d say Patterson, but Harris could bat higher. Cartwright might get a game with all the Scorchers’ injuries.

  • Only Head, Henriques and Cummins on field for the DGW in Round 1? You’re giving up a few points early there Nic

    • Nic Negrepontis

      Yeah i’ve already changed that up. Don’t want to overload on them, but 3 isn’t enough.

  • Marcus Stonis as a POD?

    • Why as a POD, is he not starting ?

      • Nic Negrepontis

        I think Stoinis is flying under the radar a bit, but I think there are better options in the price range. That might make him an excellent POD! Remember, Stars have the round one bye.

    • Holland is out for the tournament, Watson will miss the first 2 matches. Stars have a bye round 1. Load up on batsmen that will open or bat 3. Id be trading out stoinis, Christian and Watson and bringing in Andre Russell and 2 of Roy, Lynn, mccullum, bell, pollard, Morgan

  • Also don’t put 140k on your batsmen bench

  • I have no idea what I’m doing with this, which players are good or anything like that, so I’d love some thoughts on this team.

    Bat: A.Russell, S.Marsh, B.McCullum, K.Sangakkara, M. Harris (J.Floros, J.Faulkner)

    Wkp: T.Paine (T.Triffitt)

    Bwl: T.Head, D.Bravo, S.Badree, M.Johnson, G.Sandhu (A.Zampa, A.Fekete)

    What can I change? What can I do better?

    • I disagree, having stars players on your bench is fine. The issue is that you don’t have enough double up game players in your side, I think you need at least 1 xtra bat and bowler, you should be using 1-2 trades a week to maximise your sides scoring potential in this way, but I do agree bring in dunk instead of triffitt

    • Nic Negrepontis

      The only Stars player you can get away with on your bench is probably someone like James Faulkner who’s only 50k. Bench him and play Sandhu/Cummins.

      • If you started with a Faulkner/stoinis combo on your bench then you could use them as a captains loophole. if you have to players on your bench that are playing you can’t do that because you can’t set an emergency so you get the lower of the two scores, but if the other player on the bench doesn’t play then you get a loophole opp. You can also use this tactic if a guy in your bench does really well and you want to take his score.

  • Instead of having all these stars on ur bench, why don’t u use next rounds three trades to get them in instead. Also, I think there are better options than Trifitt for ur bench

  • how is henriques injury

  • Hows this for a team:
    Russell, Head, Lynn, S Marsh, Jordan (Sang, Patterson)
    Dunk (Doran)
    Henriques, Bravo, Pollard, M Marsh, Cummins (Sandhu, Cartwright)
    7/11 double games
    Following week target Faulkner, Willey and Maxwell

  • Would any of u think of Johnson as a pod being his usual unpredictable self

  • Nic, does this team look alright? Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome.
    Head, Henriques, Wiley, mccullum, Patterson ( weatherald, Cartwright)
    Russell, bravo, m. Marsh, Cummings, johnson( Faulkner, Sandhu)

  • First time playing bbl fantasy so any tips would be fantastic:
    Batters: A.Russell,S.Marsh,J.Roy,B.McCullum,M.Marsh (Sangakkara,Cartwright)
    WK: Haddin (Doran)
    Bowlers:T.Head,M.Henriques,S.Narine,S.Badree,P.Cummins (Holland,Muirhead)
    $4200 remaining

  • white, ferguson, harris, blizzard, burns or anyone else for the field.
    i have got sang and patterson on the bench

  • White has been on form but if u want some money left over for later rounds and to take advantage of the thunders dg, I’d pick blizzard. Also renegades have a bye next round

  • hay guys this is my first time so any tip would be great
    finch mccullum roy pollard blizzard (patterson sang)
    haddin (dunk)
    head bravo willey badree marsh (faulkner sandhu)

  • I’ve made a few changes. My team now looks like this. I’d love your thoughts.

    Bat: A.Russell, S.Marsh, B.McCullum, M.Marsh, K.Sangakkara (J.Faulkner, M.Harris)

    Wkp: T.Paine (B.Dunk)

    Bwl: T. Head (C), D.Bravo, S.Badree, M.Johnson, P.Cummins (G.Sandhu, J.Floros)

    Cash Left: $4,600

  • finch mccullum roy pollard blizzard (patterson sang)
    haddin (dunk)
    head bravo willey badree marsh (faulkner sand)

    any tips please

  • I heard KP won’t play the first few rounds for the Stars.Is this true? Should I trade him just in case or what?

    • The stars have the bye in round 1 for fantasy anyway so its not worth paying the money for KP to sit on your bench to start with in my opinion.

  • Who are the best options to get at 81k and lower as a batsmen or bowler?

    • Dan Christian , Chris Jordan , Brendon McCullum , Sunil Narine , Jason Roy , Adam Zampa , Stuart Broad , Ben Cutting , Samuel Badree , Ian Bell , Marcus Stoinis ,
      Kane Richardson

  • When can we trade a player ? And is there a limit on how many trades we can do per trade period ?

  • How does this look ? Who can I change ?

    A.Russell, T Head, B McCullum, S Billings, e Morgan (Sangakarra/Patterson)

    Ludeman (Whiteman)

    Bravo, Cutting, S Abbott, Pollard, Cummins (M Marsh/Floros
