      projected scores of me vs Dr Dreamteam is 1984 to 1873 we both had the grimes 6 score but I give credit to him for at least going with Boyd as C as apposed to me with Bartel

      no way, it will easily be 2100, its a normal round providing you didnt have like 5 players (grimes, fyfe, rockliff, A swallow, chappy s capt)… which is why its so devastating that my score is so low…. 1470 from 19/23, I have never had worse

        Normal round? But 2 of the top 5 players in the comp have byes before you even consider the shit that has happened this round. 2100 Will be a very good score this round, from what i’ve read people posting maybe 1 or 2 so far are capable of reaching that.

    Hey guys. These are the people i would like to upgrade to in the following weeks.

    Shaw
    Rawlings, If Grimes is out for longer than 4 weeks

    Watson
    Mundy

    Sandilands

    Chappy
    Boomer Harvey

    Would like your thoughts on priority of upgrades.

    Please put a list from 1-7 on the priority of these players (1 being biggest priority) Knights is fairly easy upgrade to Chappy or Boomer and Petrie fairly easy upgrade to sandilands.

    Hopeful team by rd 15

    Goodard, Gibbs, Deledio, Adcock, Shaw, Rawlings, Heppell

    Swan, Pendles, Bartel, Boyd, Mundy, Watson

    Cox, Sandilands

    Chappy, Fyfe, Buddy, Boomer, Stevie J, Sylvia, Goodes

    1620/19 of 23.
    Capt Jimmy Bartel.
    Stevie J late withdrawal.
    Grimes 6 points.
    Gibbs, Roo, Curnow and Goddard left.
    Hoping for 2000
    Rnd 8 Duigan out for Puopolo and make 115k.
    If Grimes is out for more than 4 weeks he is a swap for Rawlings.
    Rnd 9 Swallow out for I.Smith and make 180k.
    With 70k in the bank I end up with 365k for 2 upgrades come rnd 10.

    19/23 for 1620 with Gibbs, Goddard, Judd and Curnow to come. I would love to depend on all of them for tons but I just can’t see it happening. I’m tipping the four to average 90 so I reckon I’ll fall just short of 2000. Why did I pick Chapman as captain?! And next round as Swan comes back from the bye, is it safe to name him as captain?

    At least I’ll comfortably win both league games with hopes I’ll rise from 2983rd.

        If you go by averages alone 99 points vs Curnow averaging about 97?

        then Warnock averaging 69 vs Duigan averaging 65.

        Hopefully Warnock has a big one.

        I thought Warnock might average 80 – 90 this year, I think it was from a comment Brett Ratten made after the pre season. He is my second ruckman, I’m thinking if he doesn’t drastically improve he will become Sandilands.

    current mids: Swan, Selwood, Watson, Cross ,(All Keepers…..Cross?)
    Rooks: Corn Row, Libba, Harris, Kraks(dpp)
