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.

  • What does everyone see Nank averaging? Still feel he’s got a lot of natural improvement in him. Covers the ground well and loves racking up touches/ tackles. Feel he can mix it with the big guns this year

  • Any experienced an/or highly ranked players wanting to do a draft?

  • Treloar v Gibbs ?

    • I would say Treloar based purely on the fact that it is proven he can perform in the Midfield with other extremely elite players. And yes Bryce Gibbs did perform well in the first JLT, but he was also playing Freo and there was no Brad Crouch or Rory Sloane.
      Also the fact that Treloar smashed the JLT

  • So many chops and changes!!!

    DEF: R.Laird, L.Duggan, A.Brayshaw, N.Coffield, A.Naughton, S.Murray (J.Finlayson, T.Doedee)

    MID: T.Mitchell, Z.Merrett, T.Adams, M.Duncan, L.Whitfield, A.Brayshaw, P.Dow, B.Banfield (T.Kelly, N.Holman)

    RUC: S.Jacobs, M.Gawn (D.Cameron, T.English)

    FOR: S.Menegola, J.Billings, C.Petracca, A.Christinsen, C.Rayner, D.Fogarty (L.Ryan, B.Fritsch)

    $0 left in the bank!!!

    I’ve sacrificed a couple of popular midpricers (eg.O’Meara) for some more expensive (and therefore better job security) rookies.

    Liam Duggan is a risk i know, but please have a look at his JLT numbers before commenting.

    Good luck to all this season


    • Take JLT numbers with a grain of salt.. I’d probably avoid Duggan and upgrade him to a top def as the backline is looking a bit weak. Otherwise your team is looking alright.

      • Agree with Duggan, don’t mind selecting a POD but think there is better value out there. As Kobe said, Def is your only weakness (need to sacrifice somewhere).

        Strong first 4 mids, Whitfield looks good early. You could free up some dollars by downgrading say Adams or Duncan (both great picks) to a Coniglio to upgrade Def.

        Something to think about.

      • ok thanks

    • “I’ve sacrificed a couple of popular midpricers (eg.O’Meara) for some more expensive (and therefore better job security) rookies.”

      surely you don’t think dow, banfiled and brayshaw have better JS than O’meara?

  • Def: Laird, Lloyd, Brayshaw (Melb), Himmelberg, Coffield, Finlayson (Doedee, Murray)
    Mid: T Mitchell, Kelly, Treloar, M Crouch, Coniglio, Petracca, Brayshaw (Freo) Dow (Kelly, Brayshaw (WCE), Holman)

  • Re post Bottom of last page

    Hey boys first team reveal of the year, not sure if i am completly happy with it any advice would be great!

    DEF: Laird, Yeo, Witho, COffield, Murry, Doedee (Finayson,Keeffe)

    MID: Mitchell, Merrett, Gibbs, Rockliff, Cripps, JOM, Brayshaw (Freo) Kelly (Barry, SMith) Need to change smith to someone)

    RUC: Gawn, Ryder (Cameron, Frampton )

    FWD: Heeney, Billings Christensen, Rayner, Stephenson Fritsch ( Rioli, Hern)

    146k left not sure where i should put the cash

    • Some solid picks.

      Interesting choice with Witho, tempted but I’m going to wait and see.

      The only issue I see is your 2 Port players (Rocky, Ryder) 3 with Barry. With the early bye you will need coverage. I know Barry will be a downgrade option however you will either get a 0 with Ryder or need a miracle as it is not best 18 for the first bye with Gld Coast vs Port. Don’t see either Cameron or Frampton playing. I would recommend a different ruck (Jacobs, Martin, Nank) and keep Rocky.

      Something to think about.

      • Look at Banfield from Freo or Holman from Gld Coast as replacement for Smith.

        Holman has same bye as Barry, Rocky etc though.

        • cheers for the ideas. I completely forgot about the Port bye might have to chnage him to stef.

          Changed smith to Holman thanks for that

          • I really like with for some reason i think he has a good fantasy game. Time will tell i guess

  • Alright guys would love some thoughts on options for my team name! Options are:

    1. Gawn, but not forgotten
    2. All hope is Gawn
    3. Life Gawn wild
    4. It’s Gawn pear shaped

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

  • I think my team seems pretty set with just rookies shuffling around before round 1;
    thoughts lads and suggestions appreciated:

    DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Coffield, Murray, Doedee (Keefe, Finlayson)
    MID: Mitchell, Merrett, Kelly, Whitfield, JOM, Brayshaw, Dow, Holman (Banfield, Barry)
    RUCK: Martin, Gawn (English, Cameron)
    FWD: Billings, Heeney, Smith, Sicily, Christensen, Fritsch (Rioli, Venables)

    Cash: $9k

  • Mitch Robinson a chance for top 6 fwd?
    only in 8% of teams

    sauce or martin?

  • Previous page, repost.

    RDT just $4,800 left in bank, downside.

    D: Laird, Hibberd (Melb), Savage, Coffield, Naughton, Murray (Doedee, Keeffe)

    M: Titch, Danger, Zerrett, Dusty, Sidebottom, Coniglio, Brayshaw (Freo), Banfield (Finlayson, Kelly, Barry)

    R: Nank, Gawn (Cameron)

    F: Buddy, McLean, Smith, Sicily, Stephenson, Fritsch (Ahern, Ryan)

    Other than low funds left, pick it apart fellas!

    • Do you feel the risk in starting both Savage and Sicily? both most likely not going to be in the top for their positions but still worth a shout i guess, i’d prefer to play the waiting game in the first 2 rounds before prices change as its easier to jump on board then it is to jump off?
      i’ve learned the hard way that its better to start off playing safe then it is to take risks on players over the years, but its your team and gut feeling that you go with so if it feels right to you then go ahead and select them.
      I’d strongly recommend losing a premo in the mids to a rook and using cash to fix rookies. Keeffe isnt the worst pick if he gets a game and finlayson allows you the DPP link which is handy, only rook i have a problem with is Ahern as he didnt get any run through the JLT and you’d say he wouldnt suit up round 1. Holman should be a good cash generator as a mid rookie at 128k that i’d advice getting in the mix of your mids. Ahern to a Rayner, Fogarty or even a Christenson? allowing you to spread the extra funds over Savage or Sicily to a more of a season keeper or upgrade other premiums.
      Just a bit of constructive feedback to consider, nothing wrong with your team mate but you told me to rip it apart :p

      • Savage, Sicily is no diff to those choosing Rocky, JOM, Arma etc

        Keeffe, is there for DPP swing

        Ahern I’m hoping to change, Fogarty not guaranteed JS when Tex is back, potentially round 3, so I can catch him on the bubble later.

        Yo talk about upgrades for Sicily and Savag but then advise Christensen who would be an upgrade anyway. If I can afford what I currently have, what’s the point of doing those changes.

        Not arguing, just devils advocating :)

        • those choosing rocky JOM and Arma are more likely to be in the afl fantasy format rather than RDT!
          Grabbing Christenson or a rookie instead of Ahern is just a suggestion for job security reasons, limited trades throughout the season so you dont want a bench fodder in Ahern if you can avoid. i Suggest this so you have more so ‘keepers’ to avoid sideways training throughout the season, whilst having the best of the best for their positions.
          Its just much easier to get away with a team with players you are banking on to become performers in AFL fantasy.
          But hey, High Risk High Reward!!!

    • Very similar to me, so i like it, except i have Petracca F4, Bell F5, & $32k.

  • How am I looking?

    Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Coffield, Hibberd, Murray (Doedee, Finlayson)

    Titch, Merrett, Martin, treloar, Cogs, Brayshaw, Dow, Kelly (Banfield, Holman)

    Stef, Gawn

    McLean, smith, Robbo, Bundy, Florent, Fritsch (waterman, Langdon)

    $27k remaining.

  • Devon v Robbo +30k???

    • Devon seems slightly safer. Only do it if your desperate for that 30K for another spot.
      Robbo is a stressful player to have. It is painful when he tags one of your best midfielders and both don’t score well.

  • This is for RDT, so limited trades, but similar situation to fantasy.

    Assuming O’Shea is named round one:

    Hibberd (Melb), Neale and Stephenson (Collingwood rookie)


    O’Shea, Rocky and Toby Green

    I currently have 1, but it feels dirty not starting with Rocky.


  • DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Sicily, Coffield, Naughton, Murray (Finlayson, Doedee)
    MID: Titch, Merrett, Kelly, Neale, Cogs, Dow, Brayshaw, Kelly (Banfield, Holman)
    RUC: Stef, Gawn (English, Cameron)
    FWD: Billings, Heeney, D.Smith, Christensen, Fogarty, Fritsch (Keefe, Waterman)

    Thoughts on this team? 34k Remaining.

  • What do we see JOM averaging? I notice a lot aren’t going him now

    • Anywhere from 85-100, hes a good footy player but i cant pick him probs coz of last year, the chance that he is rested through the year will be high also plus he is very handball happy

  • Team-StopTippingMyWuti

    \ALL/ Thoughts would be appreciates
    Def: Rory Laird, Michael Hibberd, Jake Lloyd (Keefe)
    Nick Coffield, Sam Murray, Tom Toedee, (Finlayson)
    Mid: Tom Mitchell, Zach Merrett, Mitch Duncan, Adam Treloar (Barry)
    Stephen Coniglio, Jaeger O’Meara, Andrew Brayshaw, Bailey Banfield (Holman)

    Allen Christensen, Fogarty, Fritch (Venables)
    1k remaining


  • Duncan vs Merrett

    • Tough one. A lot of people overlooking Zerrett’s last 10 rounds of last year, got attention at only went at 103

      I’d still go Zerrett just but not as clear cut as people think. I see Duncan going 110-115 again

      • Neither of them. Would prefer Kelly/Gibbs/Dusty. But if you really want one of those guys, Merrett just.

        • You see Gibbs and Kelly averaging more than Zerrett? Would be interested to hear your thoughts on that. Zerrett to cop more tags like I mentioned?

    • Tough call, until Danger potentially in doubt Indidnt have zerrett at the moment he would be my replacement tho. however Duncan is like the other strong cats mids that until we see them all in we can’t be sure who will play where or how it will work. Due only to that it would be zerrett for me.

  • O’Shea and Tim Kelly or Naughton and Constable? All would be on field

  • Anyone else not being allowed to change their team name in AF.

  • Anyone else jumped off Sicily? I just don’t think i can have my heart in my mouth every game when he overreacts..

    • Jumped off ages alright! I put him in my team for 10 mins, and got sick looking at it. I have a no-flogs policy.

  • I know people have seen this a lot, but mind quickly giving some feedback on my team?
    Def- Laird, Crisp, Sicily, Coffield, Murray, Doedee (mirra, finlayson)
    Mid- Titch, Kelly, M Crouch, Neale, Parker, JOM, A brayshaw, Dow (Banfield, Holman)
    Ruck- Sauce, Gawn (Flynn, Cameron)
    Fwd- Billings, Heeney, Smith, Christesen, Fritsch, Ryan (Venables, Rioli)

    • Would personally not pick crisp to many better ball users in the backline for them, overall like the structure, solid team!

  • What does everyone see Smith and Heeney averaging?

  • Hey guys, what do you think of this RDT team atm?

    DEF: Laird, Hurley, Hibberd, Lloyd, Coffield, Murray (Doedee, Keeffe)
    MID: Titch, Dusty, Kelly, Neale, Coniglio, Brayshaw, Kelly, Holman (Banfield, Barry, Finlayson)
    RUC: Gawn, Lycett (Cameron)
    FWD: Buddy, Billings, Heeney, Sicily, Christensen, Stephenson (Garlett, Fritsch)

    Got 229k itb. Considering upgrading Barry -> to a more expensive midfield rookie with better JS. In addition, F6 is a massive concern for me at the moment (a surprise Bennell round 1 inclusion would help a lot). Planning on leaving a bit of cash in the bank.

  • I have pretty much gone for a guns and rooks approach and feel this is the strongest my team has looked. I’ve paid up for the extra rooks and sacrificed JOM at M6.

    0$ remaining
    DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Coffield, Naughton, Murray (Doedee, Finlayson)

  • Parker or Whitfield to Duncan or Merrett or Gibbs?

  • Robbo/patracca/McLean and Nank
    Billings and Sandi?

  • Hi i still need 7 players to top off my Private league 148163 RDT i think some of my players from last year have fallen off the post.

  • Do people think Whitfield is a lock for DPP round 6?

  • def: laird, simmo, sicily, coffield, naughton, murray (doedee, finlayson)

    mid: Titch, merrett, treloar, neale, parker, rayner, brayshaw, dow (holman, banfield)

    ruck: nank, gawn (cameron , frampton)

    fwds: billings, heeney, smith, bundy, florent, fritsch (ahern, keeffe)

    im not 100% sold on sicily and because of that im trying to grab brayshaw as one of my defenders but that would mean getting rid of zerrett and i dont really want to. i dont know about naughton either but i have him there because of JS.

  • Duncan and Rayner (Onfield) $200k left in kitty


    Menegola and Barry (Bench) $60k left in kitty

    —- Duncan in means only 2 rooks onfield in Mids, but potentially lose a cash cow in Barry —–

  • 1. Neale and Heeney
    2. J.Kelly and D.Smith

  • My team is a little bit different what others will be thinking but here is my first draft:

    DEF: Sicily, Laird M. Williams, Murray, Biggs, Doedee (L. Murphy, Stoddart)
    MID: Neale, Parker, Fox, Cognilio, Lberatore, Banfield, Petracca, Fyfe (Holman, Constable)
    Ruck: Gawn, Lycett (Hickey, Cameron)
    FWD: Trengove, Billings, Christenson, Crozier, Smith, Acres (Fritsch, Fogarty)


  • Is this def too ridiculous!!!!!! Thoughts
    DEF: Laird, Rampe, Savage, Biggs, Coffield, Naughton. Doedee/murray

  • My team is on the right track (I think haha), but any advice would be greatly appreciated :).

    DEF: Yeo, Laird, Llyod, Murray, J.Smith, Coeffield (Finlayson, Doedee)

    MID: Titchell, Zerrett, Sidebottom, Cripps, Armitage, Kelly, Brayshaw, Barry (Banfield, Ahern)

    RUCK: Sauce, Gawn (Frampton, Cameron)

    FWD: Menegola, Smith, Heeney, Christenson, B. Ah Chee, Rayner (W.Rioli, Fritsch)

    Is it a bit too light on for premiums? Thoughts?

  • Opinions would be greatly appreciated: RDT

    Def: Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Coffield, Naughton, Murray ( Finlayson, Doedee)

    Mid: Titch, M Crouch, Merrett, J Kelly, M Duncan, Conigs, Holmen, Brayshaw (Dow, Kelly, Banfield)

  • Cripps vs Hall vs Fyfe vs Parker?

    How would you rank them?

  • what a day. got arrested and fined $15k!

  • would appreciate any thoughts on my team

    105k remaining is it worth upgrading a player or leaving some in the bank for the start of the season

    def; R. Laird, J. Sicily, A. McGrath, A. Naughton, S,Murray, L. Keefe.
    ( J. Finlayson, T. Doedee)

    Ruck: Gawn, Jacobs ( cameron, frampton)

    FWD: McLean, Heeney, Walters, Petracca, Christensen, Fritch
    (ahern, w. rioli

    • hey mate, your last upgrade should be walters out, move sicily forward and get michael hibberd, i also wouldn’t have keefe on field given he won’t score more than 50. try and find money for nick coffield from st kilda. also look at downgrading a forward given christensen at F5 is a little too deep given you have keefe on field.

      Rest of your team looks good.

      • And then your team will be like everyone else’s! Think your team looks good. Plenty of back upgrade options through DPP potentially coming and batting deep in the forwards seeing they’re weak! Good amount of value vs. keeper.
        Personally I think Jacobs is a bit boring and won’t get to his average. Have bought into the Nank hype which would allow you to bring in Freo Brayshaw (eagles Brayshaw didn’t make the JLT squads can’t see him playing soon) who looks a gun and keep the 100k for early fixes.

  • JOM, Parker, Devon
    T.Kelly, Gibbs/Kelly, Billings?
