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.

  • With the possibility of rocky not playing rd 1, who would be the best option to go for Fyfe, Parker or Beams?

  • Need a league to join and would appreciate some advice on my team

    Team name: Richos 17ers
    Salary remaining: 13k

    Am I missing any locks, should I save some $$ for after round 1?

    Def: Laird-Yeo-Coffield-Naughton-Murray-Keeffe-(Doedee-Finlayson)

    Mid: Mitchell-Dangerfield-Merrett-Zorko-Brayshaw-Kelly-Fox-Constable-(Holman-Banfield)

    Ruc: Martin-Gawn-(Cameron-Frampton)

    Fwd: Menegola-Franklin-Billings-Heeney-Fritsch-Rayner-(Fogarty-Ryan)

    • Danger Wont play round 1…

    • you are very top heavy, playing 10 rookies on the field is a lot. But then again you may not rate JOM or christianson so understandable.

      I just think you can get one more premo on the field like COGS in the mid if you free up some cash by going any of your forwards to d.smith, rayner to any other rookie, and maybe danger to neale if you rate him?

      • Christensen and jom I don’t trust as of yet and by having rookies in there place I can go big with 4 premo mid m, all the rookies I chose I feel have good job security so it’s only scores I loose out from but can make cash, Devon always burns me, all my mids don’t have dpp so not much moving room, and waiting for danger decision

    • If ever there was a year to start with some value mid pricers, this is the year. Staying with 8 rookies on the field is a bit risky for my liking. As mentioned Danger won’t play round 1 (guaranteed) so start by downgrading there and upgrade a defender.

  • DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Witho, Coffield, Doedee, Murray (A. Pearce, Finlayson)
    MID: Titch, Zerret, Gibbs, Duncan, Rocky, Brayshaw(Freo), T.Kelly Holman (Barry, Banfield)
    RUCK: Gawn, Martin (Cameron, English)
    FWD:Billings, Devon, Robbo, Bundy, Gallucci, Fritsch (Z.G Langdon, Keefe)

    Yeah I know, Pretty Vanilla team… Thoughts and advice? Cheers

  • Def: Laird Hibberd Clarke Coffield Doedee Murray (bench rookies TBC)
    Mid: Titch Dusty MCrouch Macrae Treloar Rayner Dow Barry/Banfield (bench rookies TBC)
    Ruck: Gawn NicNat (bench rookies TBC)
    Fwd: Billings Heeney Barlow Smith Christensen Fritsch (bench rookies TBC)


  • What will these 4 players average?

    Angus Brayshaw

  • Thoughts on this team? I have three but this is the one I am playing against my mates in my league.

    DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Witherden, Sicily, Coffield, Murray (Doedee, Finlayson)
    MID: Titch (c), Zerrett (vc), Neale, Parker, Fyfe, O’Meara, Andrew Brayshaw, Banfield (Barry, Holman)
    RUC: S.Martin, Gawn (Flynn, Cameron)
    FWD: Heeney, D.Smith, Christensen, Rayner, D.Fogarty, Fritsch (Ryan, Keeffe)

    • Strong Backline, Mid and rucks, At the expense of the Forwards. Bit risky but the rooks there could pay off. They looked good in the JLT.

  • DEF- Laird, Lloyd, Sicily, Coffielf, Naughton, Murray (Doedee,Finlayson)

    MID- Titch, Merrett, Adams, Crouch, Parker, Brayshaw(Freo), T.Kelly, Banfield (Holman,Barry)

    RUCK- Nank,Gawn (Cameron, English)

    FWD-Buddy, Billings, Heeney, Christensen, Rayner, Fritsch (Waterman,Keefe)

    Any thoughts and opinions would be appreciated! Cheers lads!!

  • Thoughts on this RDT team guys? Got 87k itb.

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

    • Your team looks pitch perfect with the exception of Lycett and Bell, is it possible to change Bell to a rookie like Waterman so you can upgrade Lycett to a S.Martin or Jacobs?

      • No, unfortunately the best I would be able to afford would be Nank/Goldy, who I don’t think are worth picking in RDT. The reason why I have picked Bell is because I don’t trust Fritsch/Garlett/Waterman/etc on the field, and I feel that he still will increase in price by about 125-150k if he averages 75, which will be relatively similar to someone like Rayner. And Lycett’s too cheap too ignore in RDT IMO, given how good his first 4 games are fixtures wise. Ideally, Bennell plays round 1 (unlikely) and I can trade Bell -> Bennell and bank the cash.

    • I’d drop a backman, move Sicily and get Rayner. Pick a decent ruck. Hopefully a bit of coin left.
      Lycett is super cheap but you know he’ll need to be traded and is hardly reliable.
      Team is good though.

      • I like that idea. Lycett is an absolute bargain, but I’m not sure I have the balls to commit to getting him. Will definitely consider that option.

  • Naughton and JOM
    Angus Brayshaw and Tim Kelly?

  • Omeara or Armitage?

  • Is anyone else feeling the Rocky pinch.. I hate him for choosing team success over our fantasy sides.

    Limited preseason, dodgy knee, and a load more time as a rotating forward confirmed by Hinkley. Not to mention Wines and SPP in those pure inside mid roles. He will no doubt have his good days but i feel his days as the pig are numbered.

    Am i right to suggest a 98-103 average?

  • DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Sicily, Coffield, Hibberd, Murray (Doedee, Finlayson)
    Mid: Titch, Zerrett, Kelly, Fyfe, Coniglio, JOM, Brayshaw, Banfield (Holman, Barry)
    RUC: Martin, Gawn (Cameron, Frampton)
    FWD: Billings, Heeney, Smith, Christensen, Ryan, Fritsch (Langdon, Waterman)

    Mitch Hibberd, I’m happy with.
    Fwd rooks are hard to read so I’ve gone with the cheaper ones that aren’t 170k and still could score the best!
    Feel confident with this side, what are your thoughts?

    • Rayner and naughton likely safer combination then christ and hibberd. Like christ but I’ve sacrificed him for more rookie money.
      Pretty good team but I think you are slightly pushing luck with rookies.

    • Thats pretty much my team

  • Whitfeild, Joel Selwood, Fyfe, Parker, Neale and Cogs

    What 3 would u pick?

  • Nank and Heeney
    Stef and McLean?

    The better ruck or the better forward? I’m tempted to go 2 for the fact that everyone has the same 3 forwards premos and McLean is a POD and could push into that 92-95 territory

  • What do people think of this team as something different?

    DEF: Laird, McDonald, Savage, Short, Hibberd (Nth), Murray, (Doedee, Finlayson)
    MID: Adams, Duncan, Zaharakis, Hall, Whitfield, Liberatorae, Brayshaw (Freo), Banfield, (Holman, Barry)
    RUCK: Nank, Bellchambers, (Frampton, Cameron)
    FWD: McLean, Mundy, Caddy, Trengove (WBD), Callum Brown, Fritsch, (Waterman, Keeffe)
    $60k remaining

    Love some of the uniques I’ve got in the team, but would like an alternative opinion.

    Don’t hold back!

  • Out of interest, what do you guys see McLean averaging?

  • Backs – Yeo,Hibberd,Laird,Coffield,Doedee,Murray(finlyason,keefe)
    Mids – Titch,Pendles,Kelly,Martin,Zorko,JOM,Brayshaw,Bannifeld(barry,holman)
    Rucks – Goldstein, Gawn,(frampton,cameron)
    Fwds – Heeney,Greene,Rayner,Christensen,Fogarty,Fritsch(ryan,waterman)

    foward line is a bit weak but thought id rather another premo in mid because better options for premuims than the forward line.

  • Christensen and O’Shea or Ryan and Naughton?

  • What you guys think of Duncan this year? I don’t think Ablett will be a factor

  • First time posting this year thoughts on my team?

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

    Mitchell, Adams, Martin, Gibbs,
    Parker, Brayshaw (freo), T.Kelly, Holman

    • Very nice team, very guns & rooks. Not sure having 9 rookies is justifiable, I’d think maximum 8, with at least 1 mid pricer. OP midfeld though.

      • Yeah i not to sure with having 9 rooks either tbh. I might drop
        Martin-> Neale
        Heeney-> Petracca
        Kelly-> JOM

        well it depends on Round 1 selection ive plan B all the way to Plan F

  • Hi guys,

    Returning to the fold this year after a year out…slow to get my shite together. Not seen much mention of Libba. Thoughts? A loose cannon, no doubt. But think this year is do or die…a legitimate alternative to JOM.? Cheers

  • Duncan and Neale
    Treloar and M Crouch/Rocky

  • Best M4/M5 out of, Rocky, Sidebottom, Beams, Neale, Parker, and Fyfe?

  • Caddy, westhoff, acres or k.jack
    Which 2 for fwd 3 and 4?

  • Any thoughts please!
    DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Hanley, Brayshaw (Mel), Coffield, Doedee (Murray, Finlayson)
    MID: Titch, Kelly, Beams, Coniglio, Redden, JOM, Brayshaw (Freo), Banfield (Holman, Barry)
    RUCK: Martin, Gawn (Cameron, Frampton)
    FWD: Billings, Smith, Sicily, Christensen, Florent, Fritsch (Keeffe, Rioli)

    $48k in the bank, shoot us some thoughts ! Cheers

    • Hey Brown, Hanley is out injured. Probably won’t play for at least a month. Redden is not really a solid M5. I think Rioli hurt himself too. Can you swap him to Ryan or Langdon? . Apart from those guys it’s a pretty solid side.

  • play naughton or rayner?

    • This early? Flip a coin and go with that, not much to go off at all other than who gets selected and who doesn’t.

  • Laird, Hibbo, Lloyd, Coffield, Naughton, Murray (Doedee, Finlayson)
    Titch, Kelly, Treloar, Crouch, Parker, Libba, Brayshaw, Barry (Holman, Banfield)
    Goldy, Gawn (Cameron, King)
    Buddy, Walters, Sicily, Christensen, Fritsch, Giles-Langdon (Waterman, Keeffe)
    Getting closer to being happy with it! Toyed with ditching Laird for Billings/Heeney/Barlow, pocketing some cash to use elsewhere but decided against it.

  • EUMAN- it’s draft day today! I hope everyone will be drafting live so we don’t get stuffed up & slowed down.

  • laird, simpson, hibberd, coffield, naughton, doedee (finlayson, murray)
    titch, fyfe, merret, treloar, rayner, dow, coniglio, brayshaw, (holman, barry)
    lycett, gawn (cameron, frampton)
    barlow, billings, heeney, W tioli, fritsch, ryan (keefe, venebles)


    Be cruel to me.

    • I think if you got rid of Rioli, moved Rayner Forward & added Banfield to your mid rooks your team would be a bit more solid. There is too many good mid rooks to have Rayner taking up a mid rook spot. Lycett is a gamble, i dont like it personally but i definately think he will play & make a little $$.

  • Goldy/nank and petracca or stef and christiensen?

  • Hey everyone, i’m in a SuperCoach league that someone on here started but there is only 5 of us in there at the moment. Myself, Euman, Fev, PowerAde & i’m not sure who the other player is. The code is 937804 if anyone wants to jump in.

  • Michael Hibberd or Jake Lloyd for D2???

  • 1: Heeney and Petracca or;
    2: D. Smith and T McLean

  • laird, lloyd, sicily, coffield, naughton, murray (doedee, murphy)
    titch, beams, neale, whitfield, jelwood, redden, kelly, banfield (finlayson, holman)
    martin, gawn (cameron, frampton)
    billings, heeney, smith, bundy, fritsch, waterman (keefe, rioli)

    tossing up between Lloyd/Hibbo/Simpson down back and also Beams/Parker in the mid…

    with 92k in the kitty atm, I’dd also like to upgrade waterman to someone better.

  • Thoughts?

    DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Coffield, Murray, Doedee (Mirra, Finlayson)
