AFL Team Sheets – Round Ten

Wow, talk about carnage. With our backlines getting absolutely rinsed, a lot of coaches will be struggling to avoid a doughnut this week with popular rookie options being omitted. This shapes to be a rough week for all with some nifty trading required to field a full 22, especially for those fielding squads filled with Port Adelaide and Gold Coast Suns players. Lets get into all the INs and OUTs for round ten!

Who’s IN? 

Captaining the list of inclusions this week is Giants superstar Josh Kelly, who has missed the past six games with a groin injury. Kelly shapes as an upgrade target with a low ownership percentage once he gets back into the groove of things. Joining him in the Giants squad this week is Matt Buntine. Those of you following the articles released by the milkmen will be glad to see his inclusion in the struggling Giants backline. The pies have rolled the dice and recalled tagger Levi Greenwood, with a job on Jack Macrae the most obvious prediction. As covered by Calvin in his captains segment, this inclusion shouldn’t be too much to worry about for our star bulldog, with Greenwood not having played a match at AFL level since late last year. Bluebaggers rejoice, Ed Curnow returns after spending the week in the tribunals bad books. His inclusion is set to help out in the engine room, whilst also provide some relief to those coaches that held him for the week. Matt Crouch appears set to play this week after being named on the ball by the crows in their Sunday clash with Melbourne. Fantasy piglet Jack Higgins returns this week for the Tigers, whilst Ryley Stoddart makes his debut for the Swans. The latter appears to be replacing the injured Callum Mills, who is set to miss the rest of the season with a broken foot. Geelong have recalled exciting big man Esava Ratugolea and have handed a debut to young forward Jamaine Jones (FWD $170,000).  Finally, Stefan Giro has been named in Fremantles Sunday squad, tomorrow we will be able to see if he has held down a spot for his debut against the Roos.

Who’s OUT?

Here’s where we bring out the masking tape, because we have some serious holes to cover, especially in defence. Leading the OUTs this week is 2018 rookie sensation, Sam Murray. Most coaches were more than happy to hold Murray at D5/D6 throughout the byes, however, Nathan Buckley apparently has other plans. The pies whipping boy has been listed as omitted, so a swift return to the side isn’t impossible, but I won’t be holding my breath. Joining Murray in the round ten backline rookie carnage are Giants defenders Jeremy Finlayson, Isaac Cumming and Lachlan Keefe. Leon Cameron must really have it out for the AFL fantasy community if these omissions are anything to go by, perhaps Elliot Yeo Blocked him on twitter? With these four rookies out, many coaches will be scrambling to grab cover down back, so make sure you use your trades wisely this week!

Continuing the trend of dropping backline rookies, Saint Kilda have opted to manage the workload of Nicholas Coffield by giving him the week off. The Saints have also decided to omit prime ball mover David Armitage for their clash with Richmond on Saturday. Carlton have again lost their skipper Marc Murphy following his one game return last week. Murphy spent an extended amount of time on the bench in the first quarter after an injury concern, which appears to be keeping him out this week. FWD/MID options Dylan Clarke and Mitchell Crowden have both been dropped from Essendon and Fremantles sides respectively, following unsensational showings last week.

 

That concludes our wrap up for this weeks most relevant fantasy INs and OUTs, kick off any questions you have in the forum below, or alternatively you can catch me on twitter over at JelmsDT. Goodluck!

  • Jelms,

    Do I trade Crowden or Mutch?
    I know Crowden has a high BE but he’s more likely to play again then Mutch. It’s now a 2
    Week rest.
    Current trades are Crowden to Mitch Lewis and Murray to Whitfield, but looking at Crisp.
    Thoughts

    • Hey Anth, I’d move on Crowden and just hope that Mutch manages to get another game soon! Crisp has been in great form, make sure it suits your bye structure.

      • Hi Jelms.
        Currently with Whitfield in the team my bye structure is 6–3-11 so not to bad. It’s he same with Crisp as they both share the same bye. I do need to start culling dead wood. Mutch, Duman to name 2.
        Would you go Crisp over Whitfield?
        Other option is to go Duman to Rice or Ridley and Crowden to Smith? I would then have to play one on field in the hope that Murray comes back next week.

        • Yeah Crisp over Whitfield. It’s a good time, but thankfully we get three trades a week through the major bye rounds. Hopefully we see some more rookies and job security in those playing, so that you’re not just grabbing a Clarke or Fogarty, who’s in and out of the squad.
          I’d rather take the upgrade whilst it’s there, it’s all about improving your team.

          • Thanks Jelms.
            In order for me to get Crisp I’ll have to bring in Lewis instead of Smith. But no major concern.

  • Or could do what I was going to do and trade Duman for Rice and Crowden to Smith and play Rice on field this week for Murray with the hope Murray returns next week

  • Hey Jelms,
    Trade out Cunico or Mutch?

  • Think I’ll give Macrae a miss this week. He’s expensive and I’m afraid Greenwood might do a job on him. Thoughts?

    • I went that way last week, thinking Gibson would tag Macrae out of the game… Macrae has form on his side and can break tags, Greenwood is going to have nightmares on Saturday night, bring him in!

      • cheers jelms had same question was going to change to Curnow, but think you are correct. I have just had a horror year every player who i bring in who is playing well spuds it first week in my team, i have the black death touch

        • Look to grab Curnow after his bye though Euman, still a great option with a relatively low ownership!

  • Sorry, but Jack Higgins is not a fantasy piglet by any stretch of the imagination – five games with a 62 point average does not a piglet make!

    • His junior numbers in particular, you’d be astounded to see what he’s done. Give him a couple years in the system and we’ll see where he’s at!

      • That’s what we said about Clarke last week. Look where that’s got me this week. Let’s hope Essendon are nice and let him play next week. :)

        • Yeah, I must say I was shocked that he was dropped! But I suppose they want to stick with a lineup that worked well last week, and with McGrath fit to come back in then Clarke was the obvious one to go :(

  • Has anyone have concerns with Ridley being in the team come the byes. Worsfold has shown with both Mutch and Guelfi that he plays them for a few games then rests them.

    • Yeah certainly concern there tiger! Rice from Saint Kilda appears to have better JS.

      • Thanks Jelms, exactly my sediments although Rice could be a slow burner but certainly he’s better for the byes.

        • That’s it, the last thing you need is someone getting dropped in the byes when you thought they’d play the whole way through

  • With 2 WCE forwards in the squad, how are Waterman chances looking?

    • Difficult to say atm. Could depend on what they think of the Hawks structure or he might be rested.

    • He’s doing enough, providing a solid option in their link up play, should hold his place through the byes.

    • tough call, WC dominated Tigers last week and Waterman must have been the actual ‘waterman’ or boy, as he did nothing

  • Great team sheets

    Def – Murray, Coffield and Mirra
    Mids – Mutch
    Fwds – Fritsch, Waterman and Crowden
    Banks – $31k

    Surely Mirra and Fritsch plays as should Murray if it wasn’t for Buckley getting so many knocks to his already low IQ head though he could be a late in

    Was going Crowden/Coffield to Ridley/TSmith but now thinking maybe Waterman first for the extra cash that maybe needed later

  • Thoughts on copping a donut to get macrae in this week… ?

    • I’d suggest that any reply would be the first time that ‘thoughts’ had been involved in that decision.

    • I’d get macrae after his round 12 bye mate, greenwood to tag this week

    • No!!! (Not a very clever move Mr Tent)

      Can’t afford to have lots of non-players lying around taking up precious spots on your bench. That’s what causes the mess – when you have no room to park someone who really does warrant keeping. Bring ’em in, hopefully fatten ’em up and then cash ’em in … and offload if they’re out of favour, especially while there are new ones to grab. This is much more important than paying top dollar for premos imo

  • To Yeo or not to Yeo that is the question.

    He is the OBVIOUS next Def trade in for me for every reason EXCEPT his injury and late out concerns. Really got me spooked.

    BUT at the same time none of the other def premos have me excited at all (already have Laird Seeds Lloyd).+

    • Im now worried about robbo and lamb going to lloyd. Was going to bring in yeo 1st then lloyd but im also worried about a late out

    • Bring him in Shags, Simpson said he will play during his press conference today! Hope you’re well mate

  • Macrea and $91k or Curnow and $160k?

    Want big Mac but scared of tag but hes not getting any cheaper and has a low of 99, with the horror year 99 is a great score i wish Dusty could score 99

    • Macrae will get cheaper at some point, remember when Titch was over 900k, but can you afford not to have him until then??

      I think Curnow is a 110 player for the rest of the year, but Macrae looks a 125 player still..

    • I’d grab Macrae, work on bringing in curnow after his bye

  • I’ve heard a couple of people on here now mention Murray as a possible late in… where are those rumors coming from??

  • Jeremy Howe the real deal and top 6 defender?

    • I don’t believe he’s top six, collingwood seem to switch between Howe, Adams, Crisp and Pendles rolling through that points friendly HB role

  • Tim Smith or Ridley?

  • any thoughts on potential round 12 dpp changes?

    ive heard aaron hall gaining defender thrown around a bit? bont/dusty/danger fwd?

  • Are we trading Taranto this week?
