FMDT is a phrase commonly thrown around and it looks to get a good workout in the first week of finals. The news that Dane Swan is suspended for two weeks is terrible timing but hey, sh*t happens. All you can do is use your last trades wisely, rely on team depth and hope that there is no more bad news!

Rookies are looking thin for the rest of the year so it might be time to take a punt on those limited downgrade options available. Make sure you cast your vote in the Draftee of the Year. This week we look at the rucks… probably a no-brainer, but we’ll be running these over the next 4 weeks. Remember you can find me on Twitter @JeppaDT.

Suspensions, rested players and injuries are well and truly taking their tole on a lot of DT coaches out there. After having the luxury of three reserves last year, most of us have been cruelly reminded that team depth is critical and trading in players that will play consistently is of the utmost importance.

We’d like to welcome Jeppa on board to fill the shoes of Chook for the rest of 2012. There are still some rookies we need to think about as some coaches still have the trades there to downgrade. Jeppa will do his best to review the rookies and hopefully help you make the best choices for your team!

Chook reveals his undying love for Survivor host Jeff Probst and, just for something different, eventually gets around to discussing rookies, too.

In Old School DT Week, I want to reminisce about the good old days when you could buy rookies for half of what you’ll pay for one Jon Patton bicep. Instead, it’s a couple of mature-agers – the new breed of first-year footballers – that have stolen the headlines.

We’ve got a new record rookie score for 2012, with Dayne Zorko blowing Horsley, Greene and Treloar out of the water. Don’t get too distracted by that big 140, though, there’s downgrading to be done.

Mid-Season Rookie Research

With the back end of the season coming up and rookie pickings looking a bit slim, I thought I’d do a bit of research into how some of the popular preseason picks were coming along in their efforts to get into their respective AFL teams and our Dreamteams. It’s also a great way to procrastinate and not be doing physics practice exams!
