My Team: Version 4.1

We’re into the last few days before lockout.

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.

  • Jade Gresham or hogan? Both could breakout

  • fyfe, jselwood or cogs?
    need 2

  • Who would u pick

    • parker for me.

    • I have parker and fyfe at present and am thinging about whitfield who will have to be pickked in initial team as he will max out price by rnd 6

      • I plan on Whitfield. Highish price, but I’m basing this on being a DEF from Rd6. Saves me a trade. Easier to find a money making replacement MID when he shifts back, rather than a DEF or FWD. IMO ;)

        • What happes if Whitfield doesn’t get DPP? What happens if they need him in mid? what happens if he pushes quite high up the ground? If he doesn’t get DPP….Will you trade him out?

          Risky picking him just for DPP status.

          Good pick, but interested to see what happens if he doesn’t get Def status.

          • If he’s averaging 100, I’d be happy to leave him there for a while. I can’t see any huge downside to having him.

            Having said that, if there’s an opportunity to get another player for less, with a significantly lower BE and their scoring trend is similar, I may trade, to make some cash.

            I get the impression he could be one of those Mr Reliability players. Not bad for a bit of stress relief.

          • People shouldnt be selecting him just for DPP. It helps but get him based on him being a cash generator and stepping stone to top 10 premo in mids if he doesnt get above 100-105

  • Dustin Martin and Venables on field or Cripps and Fogarty

  • Fyfe, jselwood or cogs. Need 2?

  • Australian Fantasy Champions League (AFCL)

    League Code – PKJ5MW6K

    10 teams, top 4 (Finals), Bye Rounds Off

    Only committed players (i.e trading every week and giving it a go for all 23 rounds)

  • fyfe or neale??

    • Depends on cost and if onee means up or downgrade somewhere else. From the two im suprised myself but Neale

  • Savage or Devon Smith (VIA Sicily DPP). Final player in my team – send help!

    • I have Savage due to his points friendly role if centre and running half back

      • +1 , I’m a saints fan and will terribly miss Montagna not only as a player but a regular in my fantasy squad. No doubt Richo has very big plans for savage IMO

  • Option 1: J. Selwood, Billings, Heeney & $27k in bank.

    Option 2: N. Newman, Billings, Heeney & $87k in the bank.

    If option 2 i can have a third big forward of Buddy, Barlow, Greene or Wingard.

    • Go big in the midfield rather than forwards. Have one big forward and stack the mids man, you’re already behind the 8 ball if you aren’t stacking your midfield. Out of the options and if you’re dead set on these 2 options, go number 2 just because Newman can score more consistently but both midfields are stacked at Sydney and Geelong, so you’re hoping for Newman to get the DPP. So I’d go for 2

  • Is Zac Tuoey a option

  • Hibberd and Nank or Sicily and Stef?

  • DEF- R. Laird, J. Lloyd, J. Sicily, N. Coffield, C. O’Shea (if named, if not Naughton), S. Murray (A. Pearce, T. Doedee)
    MID- T. Mitchell, Z. Merrett, J. Kelly, N. Fyfe, L. Parker, P. Dow, A. Brayshaw, B. Jacobs (B. Banfield, N. Holman)
    RUC- S. Jacobs, M. Gawn (T. English, D. Cameron)
    FWD- J. Billings, T. McLean, D. Smith, A. Christensen, C. Rayner, B. Fritsch (Z. Giles-Langdon, D. Venables)

    Thoughts? Considering a Jacobs – NicNat/Sandilands and then up Fyfe to M Crouch. Tips are appricated.

  • Who to go out of Beams, Rockliff, Ross or Bontempelli?

  • D – Laird, Hibberd, Sicily, Coffield, Naughton, Murray (Doedee, Finlayson)
    M – Mitchell, Beams, Rocky, Neale, Jelwood, O’Meara, Brayshaw, Kelly (Banfield, Holman)
    R – Martin, Gawn (Cameron, Flynn)
    F – Billings, Heeney, Smith, Christensen, Fogarty, Fritsch (Giles-Langdon, Venables)

    Changes I’ve made this week – Switched Hibberd in for Lloyd, Whitfield up to Rocky (was waiting for him to be named), dropped Redden down to O’Meara so I could upgrade Barry to Brayshaw, and plumped Fogarty in my forward line in place of Stephenson..

    Wanted a couple POD with Jelwood AND Redden, but needed cash to get Brayshaw back in as M7 so brough in O’Meara..

  • Thoughts on having both Heeney and Buddy in same team, or whether having Greene instead of Buddy?

  • D: Laird, Lloyd, Sicily, Coffield, Naughton, Murray (Doedee, Finlayson)
    M: Mitchell, Neale, Parker, Selwood, O’Meara, Berry, Brayshaw, Kelly (Banfield, Holman)
    R: Jacobs, Gawn (English, Cameron)
    F: Billings, Heeney, Smith, Robinson, Christensen, Fritsch (Ryan, Venables)


  • Rayner v Florent? Taberner v Hutchings? Really struggling for FWD line structure. Thoughts appreciated!

    • I have both Florent and Rayner on my Bench. I chose Tabaner in F4 he had a great end to the WAFL last year and has a massive tank. Will be trialed more up field in CHF and spend times in the ruck. I’m predicting 80 this year from the big fella and will make enough cash to upgrade in a few rounds. He has all the confidence from his team mates.

      • Im going extremely light in FWD line. Sounds crazy, but im thinking of going…

        Heeney, Sicily, Taberner, Christinsen, Florent, Fritsch.

        Is this viable if my other lines are fantastic? Thanks guys

        • geeez. My strategy this year has been going with expensive forwards due to lack of good options. Much better players available in mid/def for rookies. My forwards: Billings, smith, caddy, tracca, bundy, fritsch

    • I’ve got 3 of 4
      Billings, Heeney, Petracca, Taberner, Hutchings, Raynor (Fritsch, Waterman)

      Ryan will get you 60one week and then only 10next
      Florent didn’t impress me much and from 9 games last year only scored between 32 and 52 – with a BE of 39, I don’t see the value or JS
      Venebales not sure about getting a game or a couple in a row or he would automatically come in
      Giles-Langdon – how many new faces can GWS bring in and what’s their JS?

  • Thinking Mundy or Parish over Dev Smith?
    Yay or nay?

    • Not sure on his scoring as a lot of time in FWD with Brayshaw, Walters, Blakely being added to midfield of Fyfe, Hill and Neale.
      not convinced on Parish (isn’t he injured?) but Smith sounds safe

  • D: Laird, Hibbard, Sicily, Coffield, Naughton, Murray (Doedee, Finlayson)
    M: Mitchell, Dusty, M Crouch, Beams, O’Meara, Berry, Brayshaw, Banfield (Holman, Barry)
    R: Ryder, Gawn (English, Cameron)
    F: Billings, Heeney, Smith, Christensen, Fritsch, Ryan (Waterman, Giles)


  • Normally don’t worry about byes so early in season but after paying for Fantasy Coach and realising the best ruck combo – Stef and Gawn have the same bye round makes me nervous.
    Luckily only keepers so far during those rounds are Zerret and Treloar and possibly Petracca

    But am thinking of downgrading to Sandi.

    not sure what to do

  • Thoughts on savage or witho?

  • Thought on what Libba can do this year? Looked good in JLT!

  • Petracca or caddy ???? This is my last deduction . Thanks guys and good luck

  • With Brad Scott saying they’ll only go 1 Ruck, anyone keen on Goldy? And yeah there’s a chance Preuss might appear at some point, but everyone has Stef and Archie could play too

  • Reckon I’m almost done tinkering with this, unless anyone thinks I’m missing something? Did have Cogs in M5 and Petracca forward, but moved Petracca to M5 and downgraded his spot in the forward line to Rayner, freeing up an upgrade from Cameron to Nankervis (!) in R2.

    Laird, Yeo, Lloyd, Coffield, A Pearce, Doedee, [Finlayson, Murray]
    Titch, Zerrett, Dusty, Fyfe, Petracca, JOM, Brayshaw, Kelly, [Barry, Banfield]
    Gawn, Nankervis, [English, Flynn]
    Buddy, Heeney, Walters, Christensen, Rayner, Fritsch, [W Rioli, Ahern]

  • D: Laird, Hibbard, A.Pearce, Coffield, Naughton, Murray (Doedee, Finlayson)
    M: Mitchell, Dusty, Zeret, Kelly, Rockliff, Dow, Brayshaw, Banfield (Holman, Barry)
    R: Martin, Gawn (English, Cameron)
    F: Billings, Heeney, Smith, Sicily, Fritsch, Rayner (ZGL, Giles)


  • Anyone considering Shai Bolton for a FWD rookie spot on their field?

  • My brother and I have a league where we run teams that requires a Mid Price scheme. Rules: price must be $280-550K to start: i.e. no rookies and no premos. Once Byes commence, it’s open slather. It’s quite hard work.

    Here’s my starting line up for MidPrice Madness

    DEF: Mills, Stewart, Bonner, Morrison, Thurlow, Bowes (Hamling, EVW)
    MID: Acres, RedBullRobbo (C), Libba, Mathieson, Angus Brayshaw, JOM, Hutch, Fox (Balic, Brodie)
    RUCK: Sandi, NicNat (Lycett, Soldo)
    FWD: SicDawg, Dunkley, Tracca, Crozier, Impey, Bundy (J Garlett, Galluci)

  • NEED THIS AFL FANTASY LEAGUE FILLED BY TOMORROW!! Just a casual league, all skill abilities welcome. MLTW26AA

  • Thoughts on Michael Hurley? Averaged 103.25 from his last 8..

  • Thoughts on shai bolton over liam ryan?

  • 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

  • Petracca or caddy ??

  • What’s everyone’s thoughts on big Goldy?? ?

    • Looks like scott wants him to ruck solo this year, so he may return to that 95ish avg this year

  • So now looks like Coffield wont be named for Round 1. Massive spanner in the works

  • Thoughts?
