      Backs are OK. Ditch Gaff immediately; he will play but has done nothing & there are far better performed 1st year players available. Far superior value players available than Stanton for the money. Pick Higgins if you want an often injured enigmatic player. Fyfe was a good pick last year, not this year.

      As for options for the above, move Heppell out of your back line & replace Gaff (DPP versatility). Replace Heppell with either Puopolo, Batchelor, B.Smith or Lower (if moved off rookie list). Stanton for Bartel or J.Selwood. Higgins for Didak (depending on how he goes) or ROK. Fyfe for Yarran (who is killing it this pre season has a running back flank)

          Mitchell is not a bad bet…should average 100 or more, plus i dont like the idea of having goddard, boyd, reiwoldt, higgins and montagna on the bench for round 4, it means relying on my rookies to much for points and i think we r all gonna be dissapointed with just how much game time our rookies are gonna get.

          Mitchell has played 2 NAB games and scored 100+ both times and averaged 100 last season, less pressure on him this year i think

            He’s rookie listed and Brisbane are likely to play Leuenberger rotating with Clark through the forward line a bit. After them its Charman if anything anyway.

    Magin will probably be replaced by Puopolo if he’s not elevated by rnd 1.

    If Irons is elevated i’ll probably end up having to include him. Probably for Polec as I reckon he has the least cash-cow value.

      Walker is a good player but only really racks up points when he kicks goals.

      Are you sure theres no one better then him?

          But the question is can he maintain this every week?

          I never said he wasn’t a bad player, in fact I think crows are going to be a very consistent team this year.

            That’s the big question, but i can tell you that he’s been a monster, he’s had 3 different players on him and they can’t do anyhthing. When Tippett is back, i’m concerned about McKernan’s spot in their team and now Walker just kicked 7

            He played on Astbury, McGuane and Rance, Rance was the best out the three. These 3 are the likely Tigers backline for Rd1 which should be a concern for all Tigers fans.

            sad richmond. happy walker.

            but see my point, when tippet comes in and they start playing quality defenders they will both have some bad DT games.

    My team (version i don’t know 1,000,000 :P)

    DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Connors, MACKIE, Grimes, Otten, Heppell — Coad, Duigan, Puopolo

    MID: Swan, Boyd, Montagna, HOULI, Swallow, Krakouer — Harris, Mzungu, Hibberd

    RUC: Sandilands, Cox — Smith, Derickx

    FWD: Franklin, Stevie J, Riewoldt, McGlynn, Higgins, Prestia, Richardson — Matera, McKernan, Darling

    $12,600 left

    I want to fit in Reece Conca but I don’t know how I can. Also, I think both Houli and Mackie will have good years this year. I also have a worry with the amount of people I have from Bulldogs, Saints, Geelong, Freo and Hawks as I will be losing a lot of them when they have their byes.

    Help is needed :)

      Looks pretty solid. Maybe consider either Higgins or McGlynn for Morton to give yourself a bit of extra cash for Conca. In saying that Richmond getting flogged tonight by the Crows so don’t know how strong they will be.

      I reckon Jackvoldt’s a bit of a worry too. Article in Thursday’s HS with Hardwick saying that can’t win a flag if it’s only him kicking goals. So don’t think they will concentrate the majority of entries to him like they did last year and won’t score much around the ground.

    just wondering what people think of this team.

    DEF: Goddard. Gibbs, Enright, Deledio, Broughton, Otten, Heppel (Coad, Puopolo, Duigan)

    Mids:Swan, Boyd, Swallow, Goodes, Swallow, Harris (Mzungu, Atley, Irons)

    RUC: Sandilands, Cox (Smith, Bailey)

    Fwd: Didak, Harvey, Johnson, Riewoldt, Krakouer, Prestia, Richardson (Matera, Tapscott, Smith)

    $111,700 left

    I probably could invest some money into the fwd line but im not sure who id get. I like having Goodes, Mzungu in the mids and Harvey, Krakouer, Prestia and smith in fwds. Maybe too much DPP?

      Welcome to DT talk mate!! you will find this site very helpful.

      Regarding your team there are a few players that I prob wouldn’t have as there are better options:
      Backs- Gibson,Glass,Tarrant and Watson (try and upgrade 1 of your mid-pricers to a premium and bench options should include either Puopolo, Lower, Coad or Duigan)
      Rucks- McCauley and Curnow (you will cop a doughnut as Petrie is suspended Rd1, the other 2 wont play anytime soon plus Sandi needs a better partner in crime)
      Mids-Rich,Kerr and Andreoli (Rich is unique but also expensive better options out there, Kerr also while unique but coming back from injury could be good but….?? and Andreoli- way way better options) Get Harris in there!!
      Fwds-Too many mid-pricers, try and upgrade 2 of them to a premium.

      You want to utilise your DPP’s a little better also, perhaps Mzungu in your Mids? It sucks you can’t get Heppell or Hibberd because of your mates deal but sucks for him even more not being able to get any Hawks!!

        Thanks Brappinalong! Thought I’d give some background on my thought process. Not arguing with your comments of course, just to give context on why I went with certain selections…

        [ “Backs- Gibson,Glass,Tarrant and Watson (try and upgrade 1 of your mid-pricers to a premium and bench options should include either Puopolo, Lower, Coad or Duigan)” ]

        I was backing Gibson and Glass to improve their numbers after coming back from injuries (11 & 8 games respectively). Tarrant fitted based on price and NAB form, while I went with Watson over Duigan due to his mature age and size.

        [ “Rucks- McCauley and Curnow (you will cop a doughnut as Petrie is suspended Rd1, the other 2 wont play anytime soon plus Sandi needs a better partner in crime)” ]

        Ah, hadn’t thought about checking carried-over suspensions… Thanks! McCauley and Curnow are there as lowest-cost options (i.e. I don’t expect to ever use them and am not nominating emergencies in the Rucks). I have Tippett in the forwards as a DPP to swap out with Petrie.

        [ “Mids-Rich,Kerr and Andreoli (Rich is unique but also expensive better options out there, Kerr also while unique but coming back from injury could be good but….?? and Andreoli- way way better options) Get Harris in there!!” ]

        I went with Rich due to an expected workrate increase after the GC poaching of Brennan and Rischitelli out of the mids, as a unique option as I hadn’t heard anyone using him, and following the 3rd year rule. Pricey though, yes. Kerr is risky, but hoping it will pay off at that price. Andreoli is there as a lowest-cost “dummy” DPP to swap out DEF/MID DPP’s like Goddard/Gibbs/Deledio when needed (byes/short-term injuries). No offence to Andreoli, I’m sure he’s a great bloke ;). I originally had Harris in there, but found needing a Fwd DPP, a Def DPP, and Swallow took up the three bench options. I will consider giving up Kerr for him now though and re-deploying the $ change somewhere.

        [ “Fwds-Too many mid-pricers, try and upgrade 2 of them to a premium.” ]

        I have Petterd and Knights in as mid-pricers based on big wraps coming off an interrupted 2010. The other, Tippett, is there as I’m expecting him to *finally* impact and for his DPP value in the Ruck.

        [ “You want to utilise your DPP’s a little better also, perhaps Mzungu in your Mids? It sucks you can’t get Heppell or Hibberd because of your mates deal but sucks for him even more not being able to get any Hawks!!” ]

        I have Issac Smith currently in the Mids as a DPP. Whether its him or Mzungu/Krakouer/Prestia I didn’t care as they can all sub around. Although, you’ve made me think about him being perhaps a better option for an emergency role vs Smith if activated, so will do.

        Nutshell: My overall plan was to have a solid midfield, with more gun midfielders sitting in Def & Fwd as DPP’s assuming they will get bigger numbers than standard Defs or Fwds. Mixed in with mid-pricers that have potential to improve coming off injuries or team changes, and a few token gun rookies for upgrades.

        Not sure if that changes any of your original views or not. Your suggestions seemed to fit the premiums + gun rookies model. Would appreciate hearing back either way (or from others). Thanks heaps again!

    I figured that the midfield rooks have more potential then the ones in the backline so i put more rookies in the mids and more guns in the back so my team has high potential to improve.

    Thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated

      hey hyper my first post (3rd now cause i didnt do it properly !) so not sure if it will work… (it didnt)

      Good on ya for picking Harmichael K@nt, I watched him play a lot of league and he will transition well and will get spoilt with games. Altough i reckon others in GC will score more points. I would swap him for Toy, if ur keen on a GC cashcow.

      Pretty expensive ruck as well, ive tried the Ruck/Fwd DPP combo as well and just cant find myself happy with it. Bloody Petrie had to get suspended and stuff it up. No matter how u work it you end up with too much money on the bench. Swap Hale or Petrie for Tippet(GC) and spend the change on the midfield/foward line.

      Picking Fraser and Bellchambers is tbh a waste of money. Pick one of your three mid-pricers and then fill the bench with 2 cheapies. One should be Z.Smith as he’s dirt cheap and will get games.
      Use your money to upgrade your mid a bit.

        thanks fellas. The ruck was definately the thing that was annoying me the most, so thanks for confirming my worst fears; I’ve got to give someone the chop. Petrie is looking nervous.
