My Team: Version 4.0

The final week of the JLT is here and so is a new My Team. Version 3 is running 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.

  • Has anyone watched fremantle over the pre-season. How is walters as an option, looks as if he is playing in the midfield this year?

  • Hey boys my son has made his first team. I helped him with his rookies but he picked the rest himself. What do you guys think? Keep in mind he is only 10 & he does not care about byes.

    DEF- Simpson, Hibbered, Savage, Brayshaw, Coff, Murray (Doedee, Finlayson)
    MID- Danger, Dusty, Sidney, Rocky, Wines, Dow, Bradshaw, Kelly (Banfield, Holman)
    RUC- Nank, Gawn (Cameron, English)
    FWD- Buddy, Heeny, Sicdog, Rayner, Florent, Fritsch (Langdon, Rioli)

    • Rocky and Wines are probably too many Port players given their bye. Also, who is Sidney? Did you mean Sidey?
      Rest of the team looks solid. I would try to get Danger to Titch if you have the money.

    • Wow!! Great job matey. Cant fault i. Maybe Titch?

    • Sorry guys, fkn auto correct got me. Sidney is Sidebottom & Bradshaw is meant to be Brayshaw

    • Great Side!
      If your son ever wants a change from school, he can manage my SMSF for a while.

      Don’t worry about the Sidey thing.
      Juan Antonio Samaranch had a similar probrem way back when.

  • Sicily and Rayner or Brayshaw and Christensen?

  • Rank the following 3…

    Hibberd, Devon, Sicily.


  • 3 spots left
    Draft Sunday arvo 4pm ADEL time.


  • thoughts on having walters bell and hutchings as F3-5. Cant trust these FWD rooks?

  • Whats the go with dow? Why does no one like him anymore?? He’s probably got better js than kelly/banfield/fogarty and scores will be similar…

    • Only got 34 JLT2. A lot have jumped off because of that. At the higher end of price for a rookie as well. But you’re right, Carlton will play him.

    • I think people still rate him – still got fairly high ownership of around 20%. I reckon brayshaw (FREM) and Dow are the way to go for those last couple of mid spots

  • Merrett and Banfield
    Treloar and T Kelly?

  • Dusty (M3) and keeffe (F8)


    Neale (M3) and Fogarty (F5-6)

  • what will walters average this year? is he a viable POD instead of devon smith

    • I think he will avergae somewhere around that 85 mark, but i do not think hes on the same level as smith. You could opt for a unique fwd line where you have walters at f4 and have 2 rookies following him

      • is he a pure midfielder this year, or is he part of rotation between the forward pocket and midfield?

        • I think he will always have stints forward as hes so dangerous around goal but going off JLT he will have plenty of time in the midfield. Going to be too inconsistent for me though.

  • 1st Every year feedback will be much appreciated

    Thanking you in advance

  • Man i have changed what was the final version of my team twice today after two solid weeks with only one. Just about there but going through the JLT numbers and player history on footy wire makes for some thinking

    Biggest change still to do = Bye rounds, have 15 players on round 14

  • What do we see Savage averaging this year? Cheers!

    • If he continues his JLT form he could average 90 but the last 3 seasons he has averaged 81(12 games), 75 (21 games)& 69(20 games), so I think even a prediction of 85 average could be overs.

  • Anyone think armitage can go 95+

    • Imo hes an 80-85 avg player these days. All you can hope for is that he has a killer start and you trade him when he peaks in price. Think theres much more value in JOM.

  • is jelwood an option as a POD with value?

    • He’s not the best fantasy player, decend POD but I see coniglio or Parker averaging more at around the same price

    • Priced at around 95 with 2 injury affected scores including a 2. He repeats what he did last year he is 8-10 points unders and with Gaz there he may see the tag less often than usual

  • Is LDU being overlooked because of the JLT? The kid is an absolute beast, clear best player of this years draft IMO and will play as a full time mid for North.

    • I can only fit one high end expencive rook so ive opted for brayshaw over LDU and Dow. I’m also running Kelly on field as hes a bit cheaper and is mature age, should score higher earlier in the season imo.
      I am running LDU in supercoach on my bench though.

  • Different comp but….

  • Is hutchings a viable option? only 1.5 % ownership and is touted for an attacking midfielder role instead of his usual run-with role. Got 70 odd points from about 40% game time in JLT 1 and a respectable 74 from 77 in JLT 2. Looks like a way better option than Christensen at the moment who is in everyones team and is playing asa a forward in Lions team that might struggle to get it in there.

    • If an opposition player starts to dominate then watch hutchings go back to tagging.. Too risky for me

      • I heard an article where he isnt going to tag hard even if he does. He is still going to try to win the ball? i agree tho, it is hella risky, but instead of christensen, i think he is a better option. What do you reckon? What will christensen and hutchings average over the year. I reckon hutchings can go at 80+ whereas christensen is a 70 player. Heres the article if you wanna read – apparently he is trying to fill the midfield vacancies.

        • Hutchings still too risky for me.

          Christensen a 70’s player!? Madness! 2016 he had an injury effected year but years before hes averaged 83, 82, 84. The 83 was his first year at Brisbane. He’s had a full preseason and is a no brainer at his price.. His JLT 2 score was in a torrential downpour, so discount that game.

          • look at his role in the team this year. There gonna play him up forward and only stints in mifdield. As a forward in this lions team, you aint gonna get much service

          • If you select Hutchings over Christensen you’ll learn the hard way. Nuff said

      • Nice find. Priced 5 points higher than christensen

        • yeah exactly, just 5 point higher than christensen who will play about fwd pocket this year in for the Lions. I reckon it a good choice. only 1.5% ownership as well

    • Interestingly, hes decreased his average every year since his debut year in 2013, in which he averaged 91 from 6 games.

      IF he can improve to show the promise of his first year, and average 90+, youll have a money maker and a keeper. But with the eagles having such an unpredictable midfield and his reputation as a tagger, and his elevated price, it may be safer to go with an expensive fwd rookie instead, as ge could just as likely average 70, make less money than a rookie and need to be traded. One to pick if you want to take a punt for sure.

      • yea i agree, i think im going to take the punt and he is going to play f5 for me. yea f5, really risky but at the end of the day im not just gonna go in with a vanilla team. I just cant trust these FWD rokks, at the end of the day, i dont see any fwd rooks capable of averaging 70.

      • Interesting
        Now im reconsidering who my only midpricer should be:
        JOM (90+)+Dsmith (90+) or Jsteven(105+)+Hutchings(80+)
        Too many rd 1 headaches

        • ive got hutchings, tom bell, michael walters and Sic Dawg ATM. Mid-price madness/ JLT reactionary :D I reckon steven is a fallen premium more than a mid-pricer. and devon smith can be considered a premium as well, i wne twith walters to be a bit unique, not sure tho if i will stick with it.

    • Im with you Bavan, Hutchings is a good POD this year

  • This team seem right structure wise or any players who seem too weak for their spot?
