Team Sheets – Round 18


Key Updates:



Not a great amount of changes this week!  Darcy Cameron (RUC, 170,000) debuting is among the biggest news after averaging massive numbers in the NEAFL.  The 9.7% of owners who held onto Josh Battle (FWD, 284,000) can welcome him back this week, just like the 33.3% that own Joel Smith (DEF, 265,000) and the 19.8% that held Sam Murray (DEF, 495,000)Jarrod Lienert (DEF, 170,000) is again in the extended squad, as is Brett Deledio (FWD, 591,000) after a successful NEAFL return.

David Swallow (MID, 555,000) is an exclusion I didn’t see coming, he and Jimmy Webster (DEF, 500,000) have burned POD-hunters this round, as has Matthew Kreuzer (RUC, 518,000)Michael Hibberd (DEF, 458,000), James Sicily (DEF/FWD, 645,000), and Nic Naitanui (RUC, 546,000) will all miss extended periods and are must-trades.

Finally, Robbie Gray (FWD, 492,000) and Josh P. Kennedy (MID, 607,000) have both been named.

  • WTF saints? They gonna wait for Freeman to get injured again and miss half year before thinking about giving him a debut?

  • OMG Cameron’s finally getting a game!
    Not that it matters much at this point in the season … though it’ll look strange having two playing rucks on my bench lol

    • Means you can downgrade R3 (presumably O-Mac), get that cash for upgrades, and still have ruck cover in case of a late out. Win!

      • Nah, Jones is my R3. Haven’t needed a ruck emergency yet this season (touch wood) so I’ll be interested to see how Cameron goes. Which of them will play more often, who scores more and who makes the most fast cash?
        Find myself wondering if Sinclair’s carrying a niggle … maybe a late out? Just a thought …

  • Degoey to westhoff or doedee to simpson?

    • DeGoey to Westhoff imo
      Westhoff’s a top six forward – in great form and consistent. Loving having him in my team.
      I’m a Simpson owner and, while he’s clearly a top six defender, I do have slight concerns about his fitness atm (calf?) so I’d suggest waiting another week to see how he goes. And while Doodles probably won’t set the world on fire at least you can rely on a respectable 70 or so.

      • That’s what I was thinking too, Westhoff has let me down before but he’s looks good this year. thanks mate

  • Is it a good idea to bring in COR for Sic and field him for the rest of the season?
    Have 2 trades left in RDT and team is complete, and this allows me to do Ahern or another rook to Macrae and have 9 premo mids which I can switch around depending on matchup or injuries.
    I know using my last trades isn’t the best idea but Sic must be gotten rid of and Macrae is too good to ignore for 100K less

    • I notice he is in the last bench position and Heath grundy is E1 … thinking of bringing in Colin this week but horse and that scenario scares me

      • Don’t be fooled! The order in which clubs list their extended bench and emergency players means nothing! Don’t rely on this as an indication of who’s more likely to play.

      • But I do take your point about being wary of Horse and his rookies. I certainly wouldn’t be relying on O’Riordan to play out the season. I reckon his spot might be precarious when McVeigh returns. Good to have him generating cash on the bench, but I wouldn’t assume he can hold a spot on your field.

        • Thanks for the reply, but with no cash in the bank the only other idea I have is to do Sic – a cheaper DEF premo like LMac or Brandon Ellis and an underperforming mid premo to Macrae. However that relies a bit on performance and price changes, and if all my mid premos go well…

          • Dare I say it but D.Rich has been going all right and could be an option for you,
            Jayden Short has been tracking really well too..

  • Parker or Rockliff out for Danger?

  • laird, yeo, simpson, lloyd, brayshaw, sicily (pearce, smith)

    mitchell, kelly, sidebottom, merrett, conigilo, curnow, danger, sier (narkle, wilson)

    gawn,jacobs (abott, Cameron)

    smith, heeney, mclean, westhoff, rockliff, ahern (rioli, clark)

    got 276k in the bank

    1.take the punt sicily to o’roirdan then rioli via danget to gaff(214 left), beams(281 left) or someone else

    2. sicily to hurley/hurn the a downgrade somewhere

    3. anything else you reckon

    • Not 100% sure that it will work but, give it a go:

      Sicily to Hurley
      Rioli via Danger to Heppell
      Wilson can be swapped with Ahern.

      DEF: Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Brayshaw, Hurley (Pearce, Smith)
      MID: Mitchell, Kelly, Sidebottom, Merrett, Coniglio, Curnow, Heppell, Ahern (Narkle, Sier)
      RUC: Gawn, Jacobs (Abbott, Cameron)
      FWD: Smith, Heaney, McLean, Westhoff, Rockliff, Danger (Wilson, Clark)

  • Current team

    DEF: Laird, Yeo, Lloyd, Simpson, Brayshaw, Whitfield (Keeffe, O’Riordan)
    MID: Mitchell, Kelly, Sidebottom, Gibbs, Merrett, Coniglio, Crouch, Shuey (Giro, Wilson)
    RUC: Gawn, Martin (McInerney, Crossley)
    FWD: Smith, Dangerfield, Heeney, McLean, Rockliff, Ahern (Narkle, Ryan)

    Next week will bring in Darcy Cameron and one of Macrae or Westhoff

  • What do we do with Robbie Gray? Anyone still holding him? I was originally planning g to trade him to danger but seeing him back in I’m now tempted to trade Guelfi for danger who’s sitting in f6 currently. Thoughts??

  • Devon, Danger or Hoff?

  • have nic nat, sicily and gray (late out)

    1. (play Cameron R2) bring in heeney and heppell
    2. (play ahern F6) bring in stef martin and shuey

  • With a tag likely for Sidey this week and Eagles playing the Dogs, would it be worth trading Steele for Shuey??

    Shuey likely to outscore him this week, but I’m doubtful Shuey remains my M8 for the rest of the season and the trade leaves me with 17k in the bank..

    Sticking with Sidebum gives me more money in the bank for the coming weeks (through a downgrade of Big O with Cameron as cover) but I’ll miss out on a 95+ player at a VERY low price

  • Anyone know what kind of impact Darcy Cameron’s inclusion will have on Sinclair’s score ?
