Back in 2010, Daniel Connors was suspended for 8 weeks for a drunken rampage up in Sydney. He returned to be one of the biggest improvers we’ve seen in Dream Team… ever. He averages over 90 in 2010 and through injury, he only played 3 games in 2011 and is priced at 45. A bargain, but should we lock him in?

Point of Difference – A Unique Perspective

Point of Difference – A Unique Perspective

46 by / on January 18, 2012, 1:00 pm / in DT TALK

Each year there are the same old rumblings about team similarity and lack of differentiation with rival teams. Safe to say that this will continue to occur and be of hindrance to us as much as Heath Shaw will continue to do stupid, stupid things. Aside from smart trading strategies and great amounts of luck, the one shining light that will always help this argument is that of unique players.

Birchall was one of the great improvers in 2011. From season 2006 through to season 2010 he had been a solid performer whose average was always between 70 and 79. He has also been a consistent player with his lowest amount of games played coming in his first year where he played 16 games. Is he in your calculations?

Jack Redden is a star and is on the verge of stepping into the elite Dream Teamer class. He is coming off a break out year and looks a sure thing to continue his progress in a developing Lion team. After such an outstanding year, this proud member of the RedRock combo comes at a price, so the only real question is, does he fit your structure? Because all other boxes looked to be ticked.

Greg Broughton has been a popular DTer ever since he averaged 87.6 in his debut year for the Dockers, just 3 years ago. But he had a roller-coaster of a 2011 – so why would we consider him in 2012?

He is the reason we have the ‘Reversible Trades’ this year and he is the reason I have headaches when the footy starts. But after averaging 91.7 last year, Heath ‘stupid’ Shaw is one of the better scoring backs going around. Get in there and check out my thoughts on this loose unit.

Lenny Hayes was on the DT 2012 radar as soon as he was ruled out of the rest of the 2011 season after doing his ACL in Rd 2. Priced at under $400K while other midfielders in his class are well over that figure, Lenny should definitely be considered for 2012… That is if you aren’t put off by his age!

Hawthorn Hawks 2012 DT Preview

Unlucky to miss out on a Grand Final berth in 2011, the Hawks will be reeling from their heartbreaking Semi-Final 3 point loss to Collingwood last year. They will be using that as motivation and also as a stepping stone to launch their 2012 campaign. Which Hawks players should we be looking at for our Dream Teams this year?
