Lockout Chat: Round 8

The indigenous round of the AFL is here with some big games ahead of us. Have you made any big changes for Round 8? Who have you got locked in as your captain? Keep the DT TALK Community updated with your team and the goings on over the course of the weekend in the comments.

After a massive week in AFL Dream Team, we are back for another round. How are you attacking Round 8? Did you make any big trades? Discuss it all here in the comments all weekend. We want to hear your scores after each game so we all get a good idea how the DT community is going!

POST YOUR SCORES: Show your scores as well as how many players have played… if you captain has played, count then as two. So at the end of the round, you have 23 players to have played.

Co-captain of DT Talk since inception in 2007. Finally had a good season with an overall ranking of 137th for 2018... next goal is to replace the dirty old trucker hat with an AFL Fantasy one! Follow on Twitter: @WarnieDT

          Looking at scoring 2275, and I lose my 2 main leagues…….

          Every week in my top league, teams pull out 2-300 above average to knock me off, it’s fucking unreal. There is no justice in this game.

      Don’t get rid of him. Not like he has been down for weeks now, he is still having big games, but he is just having a couple of shockers every now and again. Definitely not worth wasting a trade.

        Players that good don’t forget how to play, his form will turn around in time, and this year has shown whenever players get traded out in bad form they tend to hit form the week after…

        For example Brian Lake when everyone jumped off him

        Don’t waste a trade, be patient and show some faith in your selections. You will always have players down in form just like a normal team, awesome if you had 22 players getting tonnes every week, but its not realistic

    Cracking week. Swan (captain), Gibbs and Murphy (who I traded Ablett for) contributing 80 points between them, Ellis and Morris on the ground, donut in the forward line. Traded in Zaha over Dangerfield this week. Looking at about 1930.

    Next week Zorko will be the most traded in player. Will wait on Swan and Murphy injury updates. Only positive is I will be able to get Robbo in a few weeks to complete my forwards after he sheds some coin.

    Up against Dr Dream Team this coming Round 9. Fair confident to win but a bit unsure of backline. Just traded out Zac smith for Josh Jenkins and used extra cash to upgrade the porpoise to dangermouse. Can make changes before Friday.

    Backs: Deledio, Goddard, Waters, Marty Clarke, Dempsey, K. Hunt, Bugg, (Smedts, S.Shaw)

    MId: Scotty T, Ablett, Pendle, J Selwood, Boyd, Horsley (Magner, Shiel)

    Ruck: Sandi, Giles (Jenkins, Orren)

    Fwd: Franklin, Sidebottom, Dangermouse, Zaharakis, Martin, Mayne, T.Dickson (T.Adams, Couch)

    93k left in bank, 12 trades left.

    What you guys think?
