AFL Teams 2017: Round 20

6:25pm Thursday 03/08/2017

Teams have dropped. Off the bat, Josh P. Kennedy (Mid $535,000) is out. Can confirm Gary Ablett (Mid $686,000) is in, and Jake Lloyd (Def $504,000) back in after his late out.
Huge in with Brett Deledio (Fwd $553,000). Be a brace coach to trade him in off the bat in the finals, but his debut for GWS will be of interest.
A lot of teams will be affected by Sean Darcy (Managed) out, especially if he is sitting as their ruck 2.

  • It’s on at the G!

  • It’s Preussy Time

  • Anyone gonna use the bench loophole?? Thinking of leaving JPK on the field, putting Ryan on the field instead of Lloyd in my as D6. And then use Lloyd as my emergency instead of Greennwood. Thoughts??

  • 2 forced trades Witts n Kennedy……….bummer.

  • Robbie Gray or Sheed? Gray saves about 40k but Adelaide have revealed they will tag him

  • JPK to Beams and Newnes to Fyfe?
    Benching danger too.

    • Sounds good, however I’d check out Treloar (provided you don’t have him). He’s another fallen premo and I reckon he’ll do better than Fyfe for the remainder of the year.

      Help below would be much appreciated :)

  • Wits and Darcy both out. There goes my R1 and R2
    Soldo and Simpson on the bench not much help either :(

  • Which two of Laird, Roberton or Ryan on the field in defence? I am trending to Roberton on the pine.

    • Me too, however Ryan is a risk. Gotta risk it for the biscuit tho ;).

      Help below would be much appreciated.

      • Laird and Ryan. Roberton had an excellent start to the season, but now is too inconsistent. With Blakely out, Ryan will take his role as a sweeper

  • Best 2 out of Dusty, Gibbs, Zorko, Kelly, Treloar, Beams???

  • Is it better to go JPK to Sidey (and put Sidey FWD next week) or go Treloar?

    • Depends who you most want to have in your team for the finals (presuming you’re not in an elimination game). Treloar has a lower BE than Sidebuckets this round, so his price is probably more likely to go up (if you want to get him next week). On the other hand, I really like DPP flexibility, especially at this pointy end of things. Good luck!

    • Sidey – both are good so Sidey for the MID/FWD flexibility

      • Definitly side bum, higher ceiling this year

    • Sidey is a must have in the forward line. Swing him forward next week.

  • Chances of Lloyd being a late out again?

  • Who knows? Probably about the same odds as Ablett, Kreuzer … or anyone else really. The way this season’s going, nothing surprises me anymore :(

  • Ouch. I had hoped to keep Danger but Darcy’s out kills that. Its out with Danger and Darcy; in with Kreuzer & Hurley.

  • Each week is a great challenge so what to do this week:

    74k in bank, 1st and 2nd in my leagues

    Doc, Adams, laird, roberton, witherden, glass (white, nyhuis)
    Titch, zerrett, dusty, treloar, rocky, jelwood, newnes, Blakely (deluca, danger)
    Martin, witts (2 x 150k rooks)
    Macrae, yeo, menegola, Heeney, Dahl, WHE (JKH, beech)

    Was thinking maybe witts to Gawn and Blakely to Duncan
    Or 150k rookie on ruck bench to buzza and Blakely to Duncan
    Or instead of Duncan get beams and cash for next week

    Or any other thoughts

  • Darcy for Gawn or Stef?

    • Depends on budget and even who R1 is. Both have a good run home An in the same vote though, I already had Stef as R1, so upgraded Darcy in R2 to Gawn

  • Grundy vs Max??

  • Definitely Witts to Gawn. If you want a underpriced premium, then go for Beams, for safety go with Duncan or even Treloar.

  • My team:
    Def: Adams, Simpson, Laird, Lloyd, Newnes, Witherden (Larkey, Skinner)
    Mid: Mitchell, Kelly Martin, Wines, Treloar, Bontempelli, Beams, J.Selwood (Mountford, Glass)
    Ruck: Grundy, Martin (Soldo, Cameron)
    Fwd: Macrae, Heeney, Yeo, Steele, Dahlhaus, Greenwood (Zurhaar, Polson)

    Cash: $288,000

    Trades(help pls):
    Thinking Newnes/lloyd to Doc
    or
    Greenwood to Sidebottom
    and downgrade non playing rookie to allison or graham playing rookie

    Thoughts?

  • Potentially two donuts if soldo is dropped. I’m top of the ladder so I get a second chance.

    • He’s listed last on the extended bench. Not looking good, they might be going to play Lennon for Jack’s replacement with Nanks back in the ruck.

  • Hold or trade Darcy to Grundy/Gawn? My back up is Buzza. If I trade Darcy then I can’t trade in Sidebottom for another week (would be playing Greenwood this week instead)

  • Gaz named to travel to freo… am I crazy for thinking about bringing him in? maybe he’ll play there rest of the season if he’s now gonna travel?

  • Do I play Ryan over Lloyd or Roberton? Or keep him benched?

    Danger to Gaz, Gibbs, Kelly or Duncan?

  • Sucks when I have had the highest score in all my leagues all year. Was In the top 100 in the crows league and top 1000 over all. and Blakey gets injured and I lose so this week I got Blakey witts darcy Kennedy danger out. Game over out in straight sets. Should be able to trade out injured players or there is to much luck involved.

    • I feel your pain … BUT the mix of skill and luck is just like it is in the real AFL! You never know when injury will strike and that’s why it’s so important to have ongoing bench cover, so you have the depth in your squad to handle disasters without necessarily trading.

    • Yep, bench cover and dual position players are the name of the game. If you don’t have them you will eventually be caught out. I’ve got the same players out minus Witts. Only one I have to trade out is Darcy and even then I wouldn’t have got a donut because I have Buzza on the bench.

  • should i trade danger and jpk? thinking dusty and sidey in if i do (if i keep danger other trade is a downgrade). It is finals so do I go for the win and the week off or be a bit risky but better through the rest of the finals (if i win). Also ranked just outside 500.

  • Hope Duncan goes well. Have taken him for J.Kennedy.

  • last mid spot which one boys?
    Mid is already: T.mitchel, Danger, Dusty, Kelly, Merrett, Murphy, Treloar, Beams

    1. Seb Ross
    2. Dayne Zorko
    3. Mitch Duncan
    4. Bryce Gibbs
    5. anyone else?

  • Ok – who scores more this weekend S Selwood or Hannebery
