My Team 2018: Version 3.0

The JLT Series is here, so a new version of My Team. Version 3 will run through the JLT Series… so get your chatter happening as the games play out.

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’re 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.

    • Why load up on players in defence when its the midfield that generates the most points each round?

        • Goodluck finding good Defence rookies, Platnium was speaking sense about you last night

          • I found 4 good ones that’s all I need.

            I am Menegola ©™

            Good Luck™ ®©

          • You HOPE you found 4 good rookies.
            Unless you know all of their coaches personally and they told you they have great JS and will play round 1 you cant be certain of anything

          • So how are you fielding 4 rookies total? or 4 rookies in Defence? Goodluck in 2019

          • I have ONE YES ONE $170 Player on my field!

          • Makes no sense Chosen? I think you need to re think your structure. And have you ever won Fantasy? Just seeing if that name is fraudulent…

          • Explain to us how it makes no sense?

            I am Menegola ©™

            Good Luck™ ®©

          • I think Chosen can be a smart ass but he kinda knows what he is talking about. You don’t finish top 300 in both RDT & Fantasy unless you know what u are doing.

          • ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

            Good Luck™ ®©

          • You said you have found 4 good rookies, that including bench? Yeah 300 is good, but does Chosen actually give good advice? Say to people goodluck in 2019? That is shit advice. Kingzy, Ned, Andy, Fev and myself give out better advice then him. Platnium said some things about him last night and it was good to know that others can see that this dude may actually be a creep, got another Fritz on our hands.

            I mean who talks shit about someone but then says Menegola more then he does, Chosen the next person to do some creppy shit in this world

          • Most of us have 1 $170K rookie on the field, being Doedee.
            Jugs Tigers is the same, I don’t see your point…..

            He also has value on the pine, Pearce, Kelly and Ryan. which is better than most.

          • Lets make it clear clueless one YOU SAID defence rookies, I said I found 4 of them.

            2 ONFIELD 2 BENCH = F O U R

            I’ve said BEFORE and I will say it again I don’t give advice on what players people should own, That’s up to them to decide I give my opinion on what has been presented to this page.

            Is English your first language.?

          • Geez boys, ill lighten the mood a bit with a joke( if hawk took a shit before an exam it would lower his IQ so much he’d fail)

  • RDT

    Def – Laird, Simpson, Hibberd (Melb), Sicily, Pearce, Doedee (Murray, Mirra)

    Mid – Titch, Zerrett, Dusty, Kelly, Fyfe, Conigs, Dow, Brayshaw (Barry, Worpel, Kelly)

    Rucks – Big Ben, Gawn (Cameron)

    Fwd – McLean, Smith, Robinson, Christensen, Keeffe, Rioli (Ryan, Fritsch)

    $28,200 remaining.

    • Or can have

      Big Ben to Lycett and this midfield

      Titch, Danger, Zerrett, Dusty, Kelly, Fyfe, Bradshaw etc With $101,700 left

    • good structure and solid team for RDT. Starting with the likes of Robbo, Christenson and Sicily in a limited trading format is a little bit risky but can always pay off as stepping stones. Downgrading a midfielder and using the remaining coins to strengthen up keepers and premos could be worth a look.

    Not sold on Rayner as an expensive rookie, but not sure who else to put in now Setterfield is out.

    • Rayner is best 22 which is want you want from rookies. He should generate enough cash in the early rounds. BE of 38 should get that and then it will come down if he scores well.

      • You’re from Perth and a WC supporter, is Lycett going to play most weeks?

        • Really depends on Nic nat, Lycett has had a full preseason so fitness/form is good. But Vardy could come in tandum with Nic Nat as he is a better forward. Lycett can only ruck but tackles, great mark and also doesn’t mind getting in there when the ball is in the pack / on ground.

          Wait and see round 1, there are a few value rucks to choose from.

      • True, JS is worth its weight in gold.
        Not sure there are many DEF rookies with good JS, that’s why I shifted Sicily to DEF and put Rayner in the FWD line.

    • Like the back depth, will be big this year with the crop available…
      Good for now… Keep monitoring the JLT. Will be plenty of spanners before then. Personally I would rather Libba and Christensen than Rayner and Redden.

  • Hi guys does this work I’ve tried to minimise rooks on field.
    Something different I feel to what’s out there in terms of structure.
    Def – hibbo shaw Hanley seeds man saad O’Shea/obrien (doedee Murray)
    Mid – danger dusty Fyfe Parker redden JOM brayshaw Barry (Kelly banfield)
    Rick Gawn Lycett (Cameron frampton)
    For – Barlow smith Robbo Christensen mckernan keefe (Stephenson fritsch)

  • I’m getting nervous about Devon Smith. I really hope he doesnt turn out to be another JLT Hype/ season flop player. I have jumped on atm but i am worried about his yoyo scoring. Last year he scored <70 as many times as he went 90+.

    <70 – 67,67,67,66,64,54
    90+ – 102,98,96,95,92,90

    Given the lack of options i guess he is worth the gamble.

    • Barely played a midfield minute last year and scoring as a small forward did that to his consistency. I wasnt on but the midfield minutes should better his consistency

    • He was battling injury last year.
      And was always a half forward player fro GWS, didn’t get any mid time.
      Certainly looks like he is in the guts at the Bombers, should go well.

      He has shown he can score even without MID time at GWS, little risk imo

    • With close to 50 trades this is not even an issue.

      • The Chosen Won I was feeling good until you you came along. Not that I don’t like your comment or you. But because I genuinely don’t know how to set this team everyone has differing opinions.

        • Don’t be scared of the crippled fish, he’s nothing but a weak button pusher. The type that used to get bullied and wedgied back in school. Now he has walking stick fights with the rest of the old codgers in the retirement village.

        • Back yourself your team only has 1 coach and that’s you! mate best advice I can give…

          I am Menegola ©™

          Good Luck™ ®©

          • I do mate and I am fine with my team.
            Finished 772 last year
            My actual team wont be posted here that’s for sure.

            New people need the help tho

    • Thanks boys.

    • Agreed Andyjh but everyone seems to have him.

    • Right to be nervous… Definitely worth the gamble.
      JLT 2 will be interesting when Merrett/ Hepp plays a full game

      • It will be interesting to see his role if all the bombers gun mids are playing. Goddard moving back to half back would be nice.

        • As I understand it:
          Mcgrath is mainly DEF, with stints in the MID. The whole MID thing is BS
          Zerrett will rest FWD more this year
          Goddard will be DEF half back with stints in the MID
          HepD would have to be MID.
          Stringer will be getting the drinks, hopefully going to the barbers to
          Zacka should be MID with stints up FWD
          Parish looks like inside MID, should play up forward to

          Devon should see good mid time

  • Not sure about my team.
    DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Brayshaw, Doedee, Mirra (Murray, Keefe)
    MID: Titch, Danger, Kelly, Fyfe, Coniglio, O’meara, Dow, T Kelly (Garlett, Ahern, Barry)
    RUCK: Jacobs, Gawn (Cameron)
    FOR: Heeney, Smith, Walters, Robinson, Christensen, Rayner (Rioli, Fritsch)

  • Early days.

    Laird Crisp Sicily Hanley Bowes Doedee (Mirra Finlayson)
    Titch Kelly Beams Parker Libba Brayshaw Dow Jacobs (Lovell Banfield)
    Jacobs Gawn (Cameron Frampton)
    Heeney Smith Petracca Christensen Stephenson Fritsch (Ryan Keefe)

    35k leftover

    Deeper in backs and forwards as the rookies seem questionable. Plenty of mid pricers and rookies that may pop up which can correct. Mids seem relatively weak but need to make money somewhere.

    • Jacobs wont generate cash very quick, hope u already no that

    • Your defence is solid, I heard something about Bowes having a good preseason and should be inline for more mid time. Could be worth a punt

      Midfield in my opinion looks a bit weak, Id prefer another premo in the mid and Libba at M6. Or 5 premo 3 rookies.

      Ruck is great

      Forward line is solid

      Just keep in mind the midfield is where the main scoring is, going weak there could hamper your scoring.

  • Hi all, appreciate the thoughts of all:

      • A couple guys having a go at you now too i see, what a disgrace

    • Ive been saying that for a few years.. Gets worse the closer we get to lockout unfortunately

    • I looked up ‘Dictionary’ in the Dictionary and it said “you are reading one you moron”

      So i looked up ‘Moron’ and it said “not you again”

    • So then i looked up ‘Coke’ in the Dictionary and it said “See It”

      So i looked up ‘It’ and it said “Coke is It”

    • It would be nice to see some actual feedback on teams.

      Not just saying your rookies are shit, or this one player is shit
      Well mine are great
      Good luck next year

      Making people feel insecure about their teams rather than helping them

      • Your team only has one coach that’s you, getting input from 100 different people everyday does nothing but lead you to make bad choices.

        Back your own research and knowledge of the game.

        • I agree Kingzy.

          I thought the whole point of this site was for help and feedback across the various forms of dream team. When you post your team you want to get feedback and the opinions of others and the research that they have done. Is this untrue all of sudden? Are you only meant to reply with sarcasm and your dislike of one player/selection with no reasoning?

          • +1 Everyone seeing the real Chosen. I think we should Listen to Kingzy more because he has for a fact finished better then Chosen

          • At the end of the day its a competition one I’m trying to win so Jugs if you or anyone else think I am going to share my POD’s, research or strategy going into round 1 then you are far king dreaming mate.

          • So your pretty much saying you give false advise to make peoples teams worse so you can win?

          • Isn’t that what Hawk and William are for.?

            Good Luck™ ®©

  • Adams and 1k kitty
    Treloar and 48k kitty?

  • Thoughts for Waterman F6?
    Could go Stephenson down to him. Could really use the extra $$ to get Nank upto a better ruck.

  • Need to free up some cash in my midfield..Dusty or Merrett for Rocky?


    • If I had to make that choice I would cull Merrett until you see what impact midfield time has on his scoring with the other 22 Bombers that have been promised more midfield time.

      • Essendon’s Team sheet for round 1:

        I/C: Conor McKenna, David Myers, Darcy Parish, Josh Green

      • Thanks mate

  • Paddy Ryder or Witts? I’m going a POD with that early bye, as I have a plan in place I’ll use during that bye. Currently leaning towards Ryder

  • DEF: Laird, Crisp, L.McDonald, Sicily, Coffield, Doedee (Mirra, Murray)

    MID: Mitchell, Danger, Merrett, M.Crouch, Beams, Dow, Brayshaw (freo), T.Kelly (Barry, H.Brayshaw)

    RUC: Witts, Gawn (Flynn, Cameron)

    FWD: Lynch (ADEL), Smith, Christensen, Rayner, Stephenson, Fritsch (Ahern, Rioli)

    • I like Lynch in F1. Seems to be pretty underated this year in Fantasy. Forward setup is a little risky with Christianson + 3 rooks.

  • Cheers! Although they do look good now I’m also concerned with the fwd line. What do you think of these changes –

    Coffield, Danger, Gawn, Stephenson


    170k Defender, Adams, Lycett, McLean

  • Simpson and Hibberd or Laird and Crisp/Witho

  • Anyone else struggling to compensate for bye structure? So few decent players have a round 12 bye lol

  • Yeah the boys

  • N


  • Kreuz Maxy Combo #lock it in

  • Ok please help. I am get to crack top 10,000 and feel this year it’s a requirement or I’ve failed. I don’t want to change up too much and I also don’t want to copy the standard team. So please advise 2 or 3 main trades:

    Laird, Crisp, Mohr, Doodee, A.Pearce, O’Shea (cumming, Mirra)

    Titch, Danger, Zerrett, Rocky, Zorko, Hall, JOM, Barry (H. Brayshaw, Ahern)

    Gawn, Goldy (English, Strnadica)

    Billing’s, Parish, Young, Christensen, Stephenson, Keeffe (W.Rioli, Fritsch)

    • Team looks decent except forward line is too punty and having two r10 bye premos is suicide. Well, Hall is suicide regardless.

      If you’ve never cracked 10k then chances are you’re trying to be too clever. Just pick all the obvious rookies, the obvious highly owned premos and maybe 2-4 uniques who you like for whatever reason.

      Be aware of bye structure (you are currently on 3-1-6-3 which is a bit messy) and just avoid r10 premos unless they have massive upside and definitely don’t have more than 1.

      You’re backline is pissweak and will hurt you and you have too much money invested in uber-premo mids. We have the best crop of mid rookies for a good few years with Brayshaw, Kelly, Dow, LDU, Barry, Wigg and maybe more so it’s foolish not to have them. Money-making is absolutely vital.

      I think the Zorko, Crisp and Goldy picks are great (I have all 3)- durable and fairly unique.

      TLDR: get rid of Hall and Young, lose one of danger or zerret (or both), add in at least 2 more mid rookies, add at least one def premo and don’t get too fancy with differentials.
