My Team 2017: Version 3.2

The JLT Series continues, so here’s a new My Team post starting this Sunday evening. Don’t miss the JLT Notes for week three.

Post your team (in an easy to read format) and discuss where it’s at in the comments below. Now that we have My Team cranking, discuss any players, team structure, etc in the comments. As always, keep it civil and if you want advice, make sure you dish out some of your own (make sure it well thought out and not blatant trolling – we’re totally over that after 10+ years of DT Talk!).

Get keen for a massive season ahead.




  • Steele will be a premo forward this year and average 95-100. Take it to the bank

    • For me he was on the long list of players of possibles. After another great game today he takes my F3 followed by Roughy F4

      • Same set up for me man. Very excited by Steele, could be anything. Has all the tools, racks up the footy, tackles and can kick goals

  • Looks like Hickey might be a solo ruck

    • Titch for me, Kennedy should be a mid year target as he finishes stronger than he starts

  • Neale & Mills or Gaff & Lloyd?

    • Gaff & Lloyd

      I’m predicting Gaff will have a better year with a stronger WCE midfield and attention spread more thinly and Lloyd to continue strong form and ave increase a little

  • My current team after the JLT series looks like this-

    DEF: Adams, Laird, Lloyd, Hampton, Stewart, Hibberd (Otten, EVW/Melican)

    MID: Danger, Treloar, Titch, Fyfe, Gaff, Beams, O’Meara, Swallow (Barrett, any 150K rook playing Rnd1)

    RUC: Martin, Nankervis (Preuss, Pierce)

    FWD: Greene, Dahlhaus, Steele, Roughead, Eddy, Miles (Pickett, Black)

    Only 2K remaining


    • If I were you I’d personally downgrade Swallow to a SPP/GHS and upgrade Black to a Taranto type.
      Fielding 2 150k rookies in the fwd line just feels wrong too me. Just what I’d personally do.

      Also you may have to find more cash to upgrade Stewart to a Marchbank type if his Hammy injury is worse than expected.

  • FevsBingles

    Am I crazy for considering Kreuzer and Nankervis in ruck?

    • Check when Phillips is coming back as when fit he is most probably in the best 22 as the Blues liked rolling with 2 ruckman last year.

    • Both risky. Kreuzer may struggle to see a full season whether injury or gets rested at some point. As part of a strategy to get Goldy or Gawn round six or so may work

    • FevsBingles

      Cheers lads, I’m a bit lost at the moment in regards to teams, rucks.

  • Titch and Grundy
    Rocky and Stef?

  • FevsBingles

    OK, as previously posted, I’m a bit lost at the moment putting a side together.

    Here is what I just put together, pick me a part and let me know what you think, all comments, suggestions are taken on board, thank you.

    Adams, Shaw, Laird, Hampton, Stewart, Otten, Hibbard, Newman
    Dangerfield, Fyfe, M Crouch, Gaff, Beams, O’Meara, Swallow, Barrett, Wigg, Pickett
    Grundy, Nankervis, Cameron, Preuss
    Macrae, Dahlhaus, Billings, Steele, Roughead, Eddy, Black, Butler.

    $64K in the piggery, thank you.

    • FevsBingles

      Any thoughts? Or should I go back and have another go at it? Thanks.

      • Deepest FWD setup i have seen with Roughy D5 but all players you have included as well rookies have had very good pre-season with Macrae and Dahl likely to maintain ave and Billings, Steele, Roughy to plus 5-10 on ave.

        Good seeing Dangerfield in a team as his ownership has gone down recently. Crouch and Gaff should return to better ave this yr by 5+ and liked the look of Beams a lot. Fyfe also played very well and is more consistent great scores without real big one like Danger or Rocky.

        Considering your FWD 2 3 1 setup DEF is right with 3 3. Adams, Shaw and Laird would be my top 3 defenders right now and Hampton will be one of the picks of year. Stewart has surprised me and may ave 60-65 as Otten a little more depends if regular season positioning matches pre.

        FevsBingles your team is a contender and i wouldn’t fiddle with it much more just ask yourself if there is to much risk overall from return players? a weakness in postions that is harder to fix as season starts? and do you have a strategy for how you will trade over the first few rounds and why., cheers

        • FevsBingles

          Cheers Dovaas, appreciate the feedback.

          I have a few thoughts on why Gaff, Crouch, Laird are in the side, I feel without certain players around and certain players now at the club they should excel.

          I don’t have any strategy at the moment though.

          • Gaff ave 105 two seasons ago. With Mitchell and even Redden improvement defence is spread further and he make get ave back up. Like him this yr

          • FevsBingles

            Exactly what I’m thinking plus Mitchell there also will take some attention off of him.

      • FevsBingles

        Just changed Eddy to Taranto, Swallow to Phillips and Grundy to Martin, thoughts?

        • Taranto has been great but Eddy might have got his chance after today. Maybe keep Eddy meantime, Swallow to Taranto and Grundy to Martin good as well. I am thinking Philips as well but he does have risk and near 400k

    • Def: Solid
      Mid: solid, great pod’s in gaff and crouch
      Ruck: good as question marks over gawn
      Fwd: unsure if you can trust eddy on your field. Currently I have whe as my f6
      Overall good side

      • FevsBingles

        Cheers Roger, yeah not sold on Eddy on field, it’s either him, Black or Butler to go onfield at this stage, perhaps Parfitt.

  • Not sure about my team, could I get some thoughts on who I could improve. Also only have 5K in the bank

    DEF: Adams, Laird, Mills, Hampton, Stewart, Vickers-Willis (Newman, Otten)

    MID: Danger, Treloar, JPK, Coniglio, Fyfe, Beams, JOM, Horlin-Smith (Hibberd, Wigg)

    RUC: Martin, Nankervis (Preuss, Cameron)

    FWD: Macrae, Dahlhaus, Steele, Roughy, WHE, Butler (Miles, Eddy)

  • Roughy or Steele? and why

    • If I could choose only 1 i’d go Roughy

    • Steele for sure. I see him averaging 7-10 more than Roughy. Steele is s likely a premo forward

      • Steele is priced at 10 points more than Roughy atm, so it’d have to be more than that to be worth selecting him first.

    • Go the one who has averaged 85+ numerous times before, is priced 80k cheaper, is the club captain, is a super inspiring person and loves wearing sunscreen.

    • roughy is a much safer option and saves cash. Steele probably has potential to average more but there are more question marks on him

      • Not sure Steeke has any question marks over him now. At a club that obviously rates him unlike GWS, think he’ll flourish at the saints. As for the question at hand, I think you need both but if you can only have one take a punt on Steele, at worst he goes 82ish, at best he goes close to 100

    • Steele probably had more unknown attached to him and needed to show move to STK who already has many players like him genuinely had more opportunities.

      Looks like he will get those ops and Roughy will resume as normal for him. Given price difference and score outputs Steele F3 and Roughy F4 is my choice (both)

  • Post JLT team, appreciate any feedback.

    DEF: Adams, Laird, Wellingham, Z. Jones, Marchbank, Hampton (Otten, Hibberd)
    MID: Treloar, T.Mitchell, Fyfe, Duncan, M.Crouch, Beams, O’Meara, Horlin-Smith (Barett, Pickett)
    RUC: Martin, Nankervis (Cameron, Preuss)
    FOR: Macrae, Dahlhaus, Steele, Roughead, Taranto, T. Menzel (Chol, Greenwood)

    Lots of standard selections but PODs in Duncan, Crouch and Menzel.

  • Who to have on field for F6 out of Black, Eddy, Miles, Butler and Houston?

    • doubt houston will play fyi, id go miles/eddy

    • I don’t think it’s safe to have any of those, currently got WHE st F6

    • Miles vs Essendon probably

      Eddy playing Sydney at the SCG isn’t a good matchup.
      Black for R1 isn’t super promising after today.
      Houston and Butler will struggle for R1 too probably.

      I’d have Pickett over Black, Butler and Houston (though he could be your M10). Miles probably just over him.

  • How many $150k players has everyone got on the field?? I currently only have Barrett as it seems he would be the only lock…

  • any thoughts on my team would be very much appreciated

    DEF: Adams, Laird, Lloyd, tuohy, Hampton, Stewart, (hibberd, EVW/Melican)

    MID: Danger, Treloar, Titch, Fyfe, Crouch, O’Meara, powell-pepper, barrett (wigg, any 150K rook playing Rnd1)

    RUC: gawn, Nankervis (Preuss, Pierce)

    FWD: macacre, t.miller, dunkley, Roughead, hoskin-elliot, Miles (eddy, Black)

    8k remaining


    • FevsBingles

      I think Spencer can take some time off of Gawn, worth considering Grundy or Martin, if Martin is the solo ruck, even then I think he can still go 85+

  • Fantasy league created last night and listed this forum only, interested come join J66FDJX4

  • DEF – Adams, Doc, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Stewart (Vickers-Willis, Otten)

    Got 12k left whats everyones thoughts??

  • Which 2 of Rocky, Titch, Treloar?

    • depends on who you have in your mids already, if you have Danger id go with Treloar and Titch if not id get Rocky.

  • Guys, I think I’ve just messed up my RDT…… What do you guys think of it??

    DEF: Adams, Docherty, Laird, Z. Jones, Hampton, Stewart (Hibberd, Otten)

    2k itb.

    I’m quite unsure about Steele atm, but I’m fairly happy with the rest of my team. Rooks are obviously placeholders until round 1 teams are released, but I have tried to get some of the more expensive rooks because I don’t trust the cheaper rooks to average anything more than 60. Thoughts??

  • How many rookies do you guys have on field? I have 5 atm 3 in defence and 2 Forward.

  • RDT… all thoughts please???

    BACKS. Shaw, Lloyd, MIlls, Johnson, Hampton, Vickers-Willis. (Hibberd, Stewart.)
