  • anyone know much or have any opinions on jack crisp?

    • I’ve gone off him thanks to the JLT. Looked like a poor scorer with either Adams or Murray back there playing the running half back role, they seemed to take points off him unfortunately.

  • anyone not going the 4 strong Freo Midfield?

  • Joe Daniher a good POD to increase his average ?

  • whats the odds of nic newman getting defender status

  • Any thoughts on Florent or O’connor?

    • also Fogarty or Rayner assuming fog is named?

    • I’m going Florent, Rayner seems to have some decent potential too

      • what do you like about florent over rayner and fog?

        • Ollie played last year, he’s a local boy in Melbs and has secured a spot from the JLT imo, o’ Connor i see as too risky, all unknown really. Fog and Rayner are kids, i rate experienced players (even second years) more than average draftees who had one solid game each

        • Hey stevo, would be able to offer your suggestions to help me out please?

          Any thoughts would be great…..

  • thoughts on wingard

    • i reckon there are better options as Port has a tough midfield to break into, and wingard will be playing as that small forward, impact type player, which for me is a position that equates into an everage of no more than 90

  • Thoughts on Luke Ryan from Freo in defence?

    • Interesting one. excellent pod IF he gets THAT role. For me, i reckon blakely will get the role to roam off halfback as he is more expreinced, but if ryan gets it he is worth a crack.

  • LAIRD LLOYD SICILY COFFIELD MURRAY DOEDEE (FINLAYSON MURPHY)
    MITCHELL J.KELLY M.CROUCH PARKER WHITFIELD A.BRAYSHAW DOW HOLMAN (BANFIELD BARRY)

    BILLINGS HEENEY MCLEAN T.BELL HUTCHINGS FRITSCH (LANGDON WATERMAN)

    1K LEFT. THOUGHTS ON THE SIDE? MY THOUGHTS – NOT SOLD ON MCLEAN OR DEVON SMITH TBH. COULD DOWNGRADE TO CHRISTENSEN WHICH WOULD ALLOW ME TO BEEF UP OTHER AREA E.G PARKER TO MERRETT AND MURPHY TO OCONNOR OR NAUGHTON, AND IT WOULD ALLOW ME TO BEEFEN UP THE BENCH IF NEEDED. HAVE DECIDED TO GO REALLY DEEP IN THE FWD LINE AS I REFUSE TO HAVE ANY OF THOSE FWD ROOKIE ANYWHERE NEAR MY SIDE EXCEOT FOR FRITSCH, ESPECIALLY THE WC EAGLES BOYS AND RAYNER. LOOKING CLOSELY AT TEAM SELECTIONS TO SEE IF CONSTABLE OR GEELONG FOGARTY ARE NAMED – REALLY LIKE THEM BOTH. ANY OPINIONS WOULD BE APPRECIATED

  • rocky and bundy or trelore and rayner?

    • I would go 1 but there are risks with rocky

      • btw I have all of them

      • Hey Stevo, you seem to be really knowledgeable, could you please help me out with your thoughts on my team? Apology for the posts just really value your opinion

    • don’t personally like either so if i had to I guess I would go 1 just because the mids in 2 is awful. Mid premos are where your points will come from and in both teams you have too few. Need at minimum 4 mid premos and if you have 4 I would still recommend a mid pricer at M5. No point spending 270k on rayner and not playing him, just go a 170k there will be a few even if they’re not great. I would lose 1 fwd premo for a 170k fwd rookie and upgrade a mid to a premo. Even then I would probably still want at least a mid pricer but the mid rooks are better than fwd rooks so I understand why you’ve done that. I just think you’re losing out on too many points in the mids.

      • +1 mids are where the scoring is at

      • Thanks for feedback, team 1 is my structure and players I’m mainly looking at, team 2 was just to see bcos in previous years I got the premos in backline and forward line wrong and spent too many trades fixing it up so I went for 4-5 I think will be top 6 in those positions than could spend trades in midfield and there’s so many mid rooks this year

      • Hey Stevo, you seem to be really knowledgeable, could you please help me out with your thoughts on my team?

        Any thoughts would be great…..

    • If this team is for overall honours +1 with the others, however if you are targeting a classic league then i like it. Lose games early sure, but mid cash cows should make the most money, strong team late, hopefully just make finals and dominate your finals having the team in the league who makes most money during the year. I would also attempt to make some money with the premiums as well. Rocky, Fyfe and Neale should improve more than Merrett, Zorko (IMO). Beware Menegola may find less midfield minutes this year. In the backs Yeo should get more midfield minutes therefore i prefer to Laird or Simpson (again IMO)

  • D: Laird, Lloyd, Sicily, Coffield, Murray, o’Shea (Doedee, Finlayson)
    M: Titch, Danger, Duncan, Rocky, Whitfield, Brayshaw, Holman, Kelly (Banfield, Barry)
    R: Gawn, Stef (Cameron, English)
    F: Heeney, Billings, D.Smith, Christensen, Rayner, Fritsch (Langdon, Venables)

    63K left – AF total points across season is goal.

    Thoughts? Still undecided about Sicily and Whitfield in particular. Open to ideas???

    • If you arent liking whitfield, parker and neale are viable options and far underpriced while set to go huge this year. Sicily has a high ceiling so i think we should just ride him through

  • Kelly M8 and Rayner F5 or
    Holman M8 and Christensen F5

  • Which Defender should I choose from the following:

    Biggs Brown Bonner Cumming Nutting Moore
    Marsh Dear Hunt Brown Eagles White Heron
    Howe May Plowman Gardner Dunn Rice Wright
    Suckling white Cox Nutting Brown Wood
    Savage Young SKinner Pearce Gardner Payne
    short broad brown Dear Nutting Cumming

  • Would love some feedback on this team:

    DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Sicily, Coffield, Naughton, Murray (Doedee, Finlayson)

    MID: Titch, Merrett, Dusty, Kelly, Neale, JOM, A. Brayshaw, Banfield (Worpel, Holman)

    RUC: Gawn, NicNat (English, Cameron)

    FWD: Buddy, Billings, D. Smith, Christensen, Rayner, Fritsch (W. Rioli, Ahern)

    I’m really, really hung up on Nic Nat in the ruck, is he still a viable option? Or should I consider taking 100k out of DEF, MID & FWD respectively to get Stef or Nank? Feedback on this and anything else would be great. Cheers

    • definitely go to a stef or nank, nicnat will be very hit and miss and was never a huge fantasy scorer, high chance of being rested, rest of the team looks good though, liking the buddy pic

  • Sicily or Petracca in F3, and why?

  • Sicily or Petracca at F4?

  • HELP ME OUT FELLAS, WHAT DO WE RECKON? Really tried to get a good balance going – unsure about my backline – any thoughts?

    couple of pod’s what do you reckon?

  • Robinson and Taberner

    Or

    Heeney and Christensen

    Basically either two PODS or two vanillas.

    What do people see Taberner averaging?

    • I’d go option 2.

      I see Tabener averaging around 70. If you look at last years scores then you’ll see a pattern that I think will continue this year 107, 90, 40, 33, 34, 93, 49, 65. Inconsistent. When hes on hes brilliant but when hes off you cant find him on the park. At his price its not worth the headache, do yourself a favour and put a line through his name. Christensen will average more in my opinion

  • Need help: Fyfe or Whitfield?

  • Thoughts? (Rookies will change according to Selections)

    DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Houli, Coffield, O’Shea, Murray (Doedee, Finlayson)

  • Alright boys need a little help with this one.. Should i start Adams & have $0 in the Bank or Mrouch with $56k in the bank? Thanks in advance

    • Great looking team! (see mine below, quite similar)

      Not sure how much I trust sicily for consistency.

      Hopefully T.Kelly gets named.

      Kreuzer listed as test with an ankle fingers crossed he’s fine.

      Loving Buddy he’s gonna have a huge year.

  • Duncan or Kelly?

    • I’m hoping Duncan will run around unchecked all year with the big 3 playing.

      His low score for the year was 91. solid consistency.

      Kelly is a gun, but he might get a little more attention this year.

  • FOOTY IS BACK. BOOM! Gonna be a good year.

    Thoughts on my team?

    Laird, Lloyd, Savage, Coffield, Murray, Doedee (Finlayson, Pearce)

    Mitchell, Dusty, Duncan, Treloar, Cogs, JOM, Brayshaw, Banfield (Holman, Barry)

    Gawn, Martin (Cameron, Lavender)

    Billings, Greene, Robbo, Christensen, Fritsch, Keefe (Waterman, 170K)

    Slightly concerned about lloyd, Cogs & Robbo.

    Any feedback is appreciated.

  • Hey Fantasy Players. Anyone looking to join a $40 league? Short a few players. Shoot me a text. 0425 400 035

    Cheers Kelly

  • K.Simpson (D2)+ A.Treloar (M5)

    or

    J.Lloyd (D3)+ J.Kelly (M4)

    Personally not sold on Lloyd with the impact McVeigh had on his scoring at the end of last season.

    Simpson didn’t have the greatest JLT and not sure about him either.

    Any other defenders to consider???

    My defence looks like this: Laird, Hibberd, Simpson/Lloyd, Coffield, Murray, Doedee

    Cheers

    • Honestly i like Simpson & Treloar. Treloar wasnt at his finest last year but he averaged 108, should push 112+. Also kelly copped no attention from the opposition last year so I think he might have a few games where someone runs with him and even though hes a gun I dont think he will improve on his average

  • Jason Johanissen or James Sicily

    or any defender under 600k?

  • Hi all!

    Played around with this team so much I am not sure where I am even at anymore so feedback would be appreciated!

    Any thoughts would be great…..
    Laird, lloyd, R.Bonner, coffield, Naughton, murray (doedee, finlayson)
    Mitchell, martin, Z.Merrett, Rocky, Neale, Cogs, Brayshaw (freo), (banfield, holman, Kelly)
    Nank, gawn (cameron)
    billings, heeney, Smith, toranto, Christianson, Florent (Venuables, Frisch)

    Unsure about the Mids as I would really like to squeeze PARKER into the side as he is value at the price. and not 100% sold on JOM but should be a nice mid price selection assuming he can stay fit.

    Thoughts would be appreciated!!

  • What do people think of Hutchings at F5 as a POD?

    • I like him, ive read somewhere the hes lost 6kg to play as a pure midfielder and not a tagging role. Worth the risk

      • The article also said he will still be required to do tagging roles when required. Still worth the risk. He averaged 90+ a few years ago.

        • He will sort of be like the Scott Selwood all those years back at West Coast I believe. For me he is locked.

  • Limited trades dilemma discussion.

    If Danger doesn’t get up for r1 do you start him anyway?

    He is likely to be top 3 in all formats and will be in all top teams at years end.

    What is a trade worth? I see him missing just the one game at most, even if named r1 could be a late out so risk is there even if named.

    For me he is in, particularly in SC, as I see him making up the 60 or so points lost whilst everyone without him burns time and trades trying to bring him in.

    Thoughts .

    • That is a good question Squid and you have provided the right answers as well. Is likely to be a game and if named could be a late out but with the right rookies you should have bench cover but its not the same especially when selecting someone else avoids the problem

      So what do you do, either select and role with it or get Martin or Merrett for example. Trades are gold by the end of the year but if you are geniunely trying to win the comp or at least your league you have to avoid the first rnd low and select someone else and trade up when he’s back. Remember while unlikely a hamstring can extend out games missed.

      I would not pick him and get him in when back hoping the other guy has at least maintained cost or gone up. Have enough dollars when he is back, replacement player plus in bank

  • Ross Lyon created Nick Riewoldt

    Ross Lyon will create Matt Tabener

    Good luck

  • Thoughts on Ciaran Byrne at $350,000?

    • I put him in my team at D4 on st Patrick’s day for a bit of good luck, luck of the Irish. Then I watched Braveheart that night

  • Birchall out for 12 weeks, no hodge or Gibson . Kind of a no brainer having Sicily in don’t you reckon

  • Has been named in JLT as back pocket not half back role. Has more job security than the first year rookies. Got to 50s in JLT and went at 61 PP100 which isn’t great for the cost

  • Petracca + Christensen OR Barlow/Buddy + Ryan

    • Petracca looks like he will at least have a solid year although through JLT Salem was named centre and Petracca was for one. Christensen worries me although cost is low and Barlow didn’t play.

      Buddy and Ryan for me

  • riewoldt was a star before ‘ross the boss’ got there.
