AFL Teams 2017: Round 2

5:00 pm Thursday 31/03/2017

Sunday extended Bench teams are in! All I have to say is rookie Carnage, and its all at one club, North Melbourne. Already knew about Brett Eddy (Fwd $150,000) .
Now we have Braydon Preuss (Ruck $162,000), Declan Mountford (Mid $159,000), Mitchell Hibberd (Def $150,000).
Oh well, at least it gives us a few donuts to use the VC loophole on :/

4:30 pm Thursday 31/03/2017

Extended bench selections are up soon, and with quite a few rookies on those benches this is one you wont want to miss.
Early news already that Brett Eddy (Fwd $150,000) will be dropped. Will there be more rookie carnage?

6:30 pm Thursday 30/03/2017

AFL round 2 remaining teams are in! Notes to follow.
Straight of the bat Matthew Kennedy (Fwd $202,000) is an out. So if you wanted either Dan Butler (Fwd $173,000) or Will Hoskin-Elliott (Fwd $258,000) he is an obvious trade out candidate, and you have to trade NOW.
popular preseason rookie Teia Miles (Mid/Fwd $150,000) has been given a shot after hawks loss to Dons last week.
Swans are blooding not one, not two, but three new debutantes in Robbie Fox (Mid $150,000), Nic Newman (Def $150,000), Will Hayward (Fwd $210,000).

5:30 pm Thursday 30/03/2017

Full weekend teams will be named from ~6:15pm tonight. Some late news, it appears that Max Gawn (Ruck $642,000) had a training mishap where he injured his wrist, but he is still expected to play. He is also still sore from a back injury last week. This is a definite watch this space for owners. Confirming earlier news David Swallow (Mid $355,000) will play his first match in almost two years.

6:25 pm Wednesday 29/03/2017

Teamsheets for partial lockout game Tiges vs Pies are IN! There doesnt seem to be any particularly exciting ins Fantasy wise, unless you are looking for an extreme outside POD eg James Aish (mid $384,000), Kane Lambert (Fwd $383,000). I’m not going there.
None of the outs in Hunt, Lloyd, McIntosh, Cox or Varcoe will make coaches sweat either. Other than to say Cox being dropped is good news for Grundy owners. (Thanks to MGPT in comments below for pointing this out).

5:30 pm Wednesday 29/03/2017

Teamsheets for Tiges vs Collingwood Thurs game will be released from ~6:15pm tonight. Its another partial lockout game, so make sure any trades involving Tiges or Pies players are done before 7:20pm AEST on Thursday. Again you will only have a brief window to check full weekend teams from 6:15pm Thurday night before the partial lockout at 7:20pm.

For the Thursday match, we already know that not so Fantasy relevant Travis Varcoe (Fwd $404,000) was offered a 1 match ban, but could give opportunity for a new selection this week.

As for other weekend matches, a bit of selection news for Saints already during the week with Saints player David Armitage (Mid $503,000) ruled out for this Saturday and possibly for up to two weeks. There is however great news for Nick Riewoldt (Fwd $659,000) which his injury, that to me looked really bad, could turn out to be only 1 or 2 weeks. Also for the saints Leigh Montagna (Def $592,000) looks a possibility to make a return giving us another Def premo option, and Paddy McCartin (Fwd $248,000) looks set to be Nroos replacement.

For those who have David Swallow (Mid $355,000) suns are confident that he will line up this week.
Not as Fantasy relevant but worth mentioning Cats Cameron Guthrie (Mid $485,000) looks set to miss another week, but late withdraw ruck Zac Smith (Ruck $397,000) looks set to play. Not so Fantasy relevant Majak Daw (Fwd/Ruck $354,000) looks set to play, which is yet another tall to play with Braydon Preuss (Ruck $162,000) and Todd Goldstein (Ruck $576,000) which could potentially influence their scoring potential.
Both Nathan Wilson (Def $384,000) and Jacob Hopper (Mid/Fwd $391,000) are both looking likely for GWS, but they are both awkward midpricers.
You should already be aware Bernie Vince (Mid/Def $557,000 ) has been offered a 1 week suspension.

Also a quick watch this space note, Swans are hopeful Isaac Heeney (Fwd $442,000) is on the mend from his Glandular fever and could be good by round 3.

Shag’s Watchlist

I’m a firm believer that at this stage in the season, high priority needs to be on chasing rookie bolters. I’m also going to sound like a broken record and name two players which I also named last week, but there is a very good reason. The disadvantage of course is not knowing what rookies are ommitted from the remaining weekend. Make sure you quickly check tomo from ~6:15pm.

whe
Will Hoskin-Elliott (Fwd $258,000) or WHE as he is fondly called by his AF coaches, was one of the few rookie priced players to not let us down last week. Already possibly out of price range for many, his 95 score and BE of 2 means if you didnt start him, and you want him, this is the week to go.

butler
Dan Butler (Fwd $173,000) bounched out a very handy 72 in his first match, and looked very lively in the Tiges line up. His BE is -6 and his price remains relatively cheap, if you havent already got him, definitely a worthwhile swap for a failed rookie.

Shags’ Watchlist

newman
With injuries to Rampe, Robinson and ommision of Towers, Swans gives us 3 new rookies! Of the 3 the most fanfare seems to be for Nic Newman (Def $150,000) who is a mature aged rookie and previously winner of Fothergill-Round Medal in 2014 so he comes with some pedigree. The distinct lack of Def rookies at the moment, and few failed last week makes him mighty tempting.

Shags’ Watchlist

tm
Another rookie gift for us, with a preseason popular pick Teia Miles (Mid/Fwd $150,000). I think his Job Security is a bit shaky and he will definitely need to perform to hold his spot over axed hawks players. His JLT scores were decent enough with 63 and 58.
He comes cheap, and his DPP status is handy.

Shags’ Watchlist

sw
Basically his first game for two years, David Swallow (Mid $355,000) is a gun. The only question is how injury affected his comeback will be, especially being a late withdraw last week. A few who started him will breath a sigh of relief he is named this week. Could be a sneaky upgrade for a failed rookie if thats what you are looking for.

Shags’ Watchlist

mc
With no Fantasy relevent inclusions in this game, I’m going with surprise bolter Andrew McGrath (Def/Mid $276,000) who was super impressive in the bombers win last week with a 96. He is getting a bit too expensive as a cashcow for many, however with last years Bunnies (Unsure if this years bunnies) Brisbane, you might back him to go big again, with a BE of 5 still has cash to make.

monty
I said earlier that this week should be about fixing rookies (unless you have an injury) however with no real rookie options my watchlist will be focused on the return of Fantasy royalty Leigh Montagna (Def $592,000) who returns as a possible Defender premium upgrade, and with only 1.87% ownership, a serious POD option. Definitely watch his form first and consider down the track.

stew
Well, 42 is nothing to write home about, but for a def rookie its certainly not the end of the world. Tom Stewart (Def $178,000) has good Job security it seems at least, and really beggars cant be choosers really.

han
With the lowest BE in the game of -14 after an 88, everyone should be considering getting Mitch Hannan (Fwd $190,000) who is a rookie bolter that flew under everyones radar. Anyone watching the Dees game last week would have been really impressed. 2nd game in a row being selected is a great indication for his JS for the time being as well.

Shags’ Watchlist


Dan Houston (Fwd $167,000) looked like a bit of a slow burn rookie option, but Injuries to a few port players such as Pittard has given him an opportunity. The Port website is talking him up which is a great indication for his Job security. With a handy 61 last week and a BE of 0, he has plenty of cash making potential and if you dont already have him, is still cheap.

  • Hey lads… going to offload M Kennedy this week and I have $450k to spend – can use it in either forwards or mids due to DPP of Pickett… options:

    1) Hannan + 260k left
    2) Miles + 300k left
    3) Neal-Bullen + 162k
    4) Clayton Oliver + zero left

    Keep in mind that all of these rookies will replace Butler on the field.

    • i would bank on 3 or 4, those 2 are going to be monsters for melbourne this year.
      in my opinion come seasons end Oliver will average 95 and Neal-Bullen 90 :)
      so write now i would take the chance of NB like everyone else :)

      • That’s what I’ve gone for the moment – ANB. I didn’t watch the Demons last week so I’m very interested in the monster fantasy scores they can put up

        • demons will make top 8 this year easy! good to have J Lew in the midfield showing them what he does, with Jones ghosting under the radar as per usual. with the inclusion of these two young guns and there other sporadic midfielders they might have a first half of the season like Roo’s did last year! do you smell what im cooking?

  • Miles + SPP or Taranto + Barrett on field

  • Matt Kennedy -> Neal-Bullen and field Stewart

    Hibberd -> McGrath and field Houston?

  • Anyone know anything about Fox or Newman? Which has better JS/can score over 30?

    • Matt

      Depending what you need???
      I’ve got Smith so in comes Newman
      Fox played 3 JTL games scoring 52 (16disposals at 69%) 31 (9dis at70%) 19 (???)
      Newman played only one 63 (19disposals at 89%)

      i think if you need a fwd then Miles is a better pick than Fox
      Good luck

      • I have Smith but Hibbo in the mids, so I’m flexible. I’m thinking Newman just because Fox sorta sucked JLT, which means nothing but still. Might come down to the North mids selection tomorrow.

        • i think HIBBERD looking a little shaky????
          Named in the bottom 3 isn’t a great sign!!!!
          Newman to Smith (sadly he won’t be back) is a no brainer

          • Oh absolutely, my rooks are in a complete shambles. The Hibberd thing is more a case of whether it’s better to wear the zero in the mids or in defense. Might actually go Miles so I keep a DPP so I can handle Eddy next week. God, the kids are bad they’re so bad. Hibbo is only safe this week because Smith is guaranteed to not return, Scott could be stupid…

  • Have a full squad playing and can’t afford Eddy > Hannon

    Can exactly do Taranto ? WHE.

    Worth it?

  • I cant do the loophole because all my players are playing!!!

    I have parfitt, hibberd, preuss and eddy on my bench.

    These guys have been selected for emergency, I really want to know who wont play so I can place captain on them for the loophole!

  • Back Adams Laird Jones Marchbank Hampton Stewart Otten Smith
    Mids Dangerfield Rockliff Titchell Fyfe Beams O’Meara Swallow Barrett Pickett Hibberd Rucks Martin Nankervis Preuss Cameron
    Forwards Macrae Dahlhaus Miller Steele Roughead Taranto Eddy Butler

    got 35k in the bank, dont know what to do for trades any help would be great

  • hey guys a little advice please?

    RDT here, should i use two trades to downgrade Joel Smith (inj) too Guthrie (not playing) so i can trade out Tarranto too WHE? or just use one trade and use DPP links to change Joel Smith too Dan Butler? thanks!

    Tarranto >> Will Hoskin-Elliot
    Smith >> Guthrie

    or

    Smith >> Butler (via DPP)

    • Hey Rock… I smell what you’re cooking. Go option 2 due to the limited trades. Help above?

  • hibberd or otten for newman?

  • Butler or miles for Kennedy ?

  • Trading out J.Smith (D8) and M.Kennedy (F6) with 16k in the kitty already. Due to the magic of DPP, I can get any rookie for either.

    Two of Hannan, Butler, Houston, Atley, Drew, Miles, Fox, Newman.

    Miles locked in as one..how about the other one? Thanks in advance:)

    • I’m doing those exact same outs, but with only 1k spare to start. I’m going Hannan but I already have Butler. Currently thinking of Newman over Fox for my other one just because Fox has shown general cruddiness in the JLT, Newman’s a true unknown haha. Also Rampe’s injury leaves a proper defender spot open for a while.

  • Trade out Hibberd or Otten for Newman?

  • New Draft League. Live draft next Thursday 6th April at 8pm. Head-to-head match-ups start in Round 3. Please join! Code = PADV7S9L

  • Field Butler or Hannan guys???

  • Field Butler or Taranto?

  • Pick 2 Newman, Miles, Hannan and Butler?

    My 2 are Miles and Hannan

  • B: Laird, Adams, Mills, Hampton, Marchbank, Otten (Vick-Will, Hibberd)
    M: Danger, Fyfe, Steven, Beams, Trealor, Titch, O’Meara, Barrett (Pickett, Mountford)
    R: Stef, Nank (D. Cameron, Pruess)
    F: McRae, Dalhaus, Billings, Roughie, Tarranto, Butler (Miles, Eddy)
    WTF do I do with my trades?
    Temped to get rid of an underperforming Mills and Tarranto (only have $1K in the bank) or shuffle rooks.
    HELP!!

    • thats a pretty good team first of all.

      taranto to WHE. easy peasy.

      hold steady on mills. its only one game.

      EVW hasnt been named for two weeks. give Newman a crack ??

  • thats a pretty good team first of all.

    taranto to WHE. easy peasy.

    hold steady on mills. its only one game.

    EVW hasnt been named for two weeks. give Newman a crack ??

  • swans fans – will cameron ever get a game? or is he another wasted R4 … whats the fanstay lingo for a player that gets semi-hyped up and never plays – remember curry !

    • He was looking a good chance to get a game but got injured before round 1. Him and Preuss are the only cheap rucks likely to get games as far as I know.

  • Just to be sure, you can reverse trades if they don’t involve players from tonights games?

  • Was tempting to go Taranto to Hoskin Elliot, but decided to play it safe and make sure I have 2 trades to use tomorrow. Too many rookies in Sunday squads who are vulnerable

  • Do i have to start recording my own players stats? Grundy had a 1-2 handball in the first 5 minutes they forgot and a tackle on vlaustin… yet adams touches people and gets a tackle, also adams got holding the ball but didnt get a -3? so Bias.

    • Absolute joke, Grundy still missing +8 and Adams lays 1 finger on someone and gets a tackle. Guess we know who is in champion data’s team.

      • you fucking snitch!

        haha but seriously, adams lost a tackle stat but grundy hasnt gotten any extra which sucks
        (i have both players)

  • If anyone wants to join a league got 6 spots left, code is: VXXCZU2P

  • Tempted to downgrade Swallow to Neal-Bullen or Powell-Pepper to make some cash, is this a bad idea?

  • It’s fair to say Taranto to Hoskin-Elliot would of been the right trade, too late now :(

    • Similar boat mate. Been out camping all week, missed lockout by about 30mins.

  • Should i trade out m Kennedy at f6 and bring in any fwd or trade smith

  • what are everyones thoughts on hibberd, will he play or will he not ?

  • Pickett named in back pocket, Bolton please play him there.

    Anyone nervous about bring Zac Jones in with Rampe injury?

  • Help with my trades please! I have no idea of what to do, I am in desperate need for $. My only thought will be to jump of the sinking Hannebery ship to Fyfe and do a sideways rookie trade. But Hanners will bounce back surely (if not this week then will soon).

    Remaining cash $1,000
    DEF: Adams, Doch, Laird, Mills, March, Hampton (Stewart, Otten)
    MID: Danger, Treloar, Hanners, Steven, Beams, Heppell, O’Meara, Barrett
    RUC: Kreuzer, Nank (Preuss, Cameron)
    FWD: Macrae, Greene, WHE, Roughead, Weiderman, Butler (pickett, Eddy)

    i need another decent fwd. I want to get rid of Pickett due to him playing a fwdpocket role, thinking to go to mile but unsure on JS. dont want to waste a sideways trade to pocket $2k.

    any suggestions?

    • Give hanners one more try, but if he plays mostly wing again and looks scared of the pill I too will be trading.
      Personally I’d downgrade mills to jones, use that cash to fix any rookie/non playing mistakes. Sorry it’s not much help, first couple weeks are always the hardest!

  • Thoughts on Newman lads?

    • Stab in the dark. But with failed rookies like Hibberd and no other options I reckon a few will take the punt.

  • What do people think of Harry Marsh (Def $235,000), BE of only 4, scored a very handy 83 round 1.
    I havent seen almost any mention of him. Played a couple of games for sydney last year not scoring great with 42, 37, 26…but the Sydney Dynamic is different this year and missing a few players for awhile due to injury.

    • He gets a mention in Jep’s Jnrs this week… heed his advice: “Don’t get too excited though, his price is out of reach for a player likely to score below 60. If he was cheap then I’d endorse him”

    • I’ll be getting on him in Hannan doesn’t get picked, with no forced trades I’ll be riding the BE train until it all ends poorly for me lol
      Plus he will play until at least round 4 when mcveigh and Rohan will likely return, could bank an extra 40-60k by then.

  • Worth riding Matt Kennedy for a week and loopholing Butler’s 59? Seems a recent score after last weeks rookie scores.

    • Nope. You gotta maintain your cash flow. Get rid of Kennedy.
      get a rookie in that SHOULD (I know after last week may leave some doubtful) score enough to gain some value.

    • If you have other areas to fix up why not, but the way Kennedy played he’ll have an extended period out of the team

  • Any trade ideas aside from sidewaysing smith??

    DEF
    Adams, laird, JJ, mills, marchbank, hampton (otten, smith)
    MID
    Titch, Steven, Fyfe, Beams, lloyd, JOM, swallow, Barrett (mountford, hibberd)
    RUC
    Nank, witts (preuss, mcinerney)
    FWD
    macrae, dahl, Greene, billings, roughy, butler (miles, eddy)

    PS only 1k in the bank
    Cheers!

  • take butlers score or back in b eddy?

  • what time will lockout end in WA Standard Time in order to ensure i can snag hoskin-elliot in my draft team

  • Hey boys, I’m trading Roo for Steele. Should I trade Taranto for Neal-Bullen (already have WHE) or Hibberd for a cheap bench defender

    Cheers

  • G’day lads, looking at fixing up rookies this week and need to pick 2 out of the following 3 trades to make tonight:

    M. Hibberd –> N. Newman
    M. Kennedy –> M. Hannan / T. Miles
    B. Eddy –> M. Hannan / T. Miles

    Any advice is golden
