Now that the Team Picker is available for us to use, we can actually start putting our 2013 AFL Dream Team squads together knowing ALL of the positions and prices for the game. Version 2.0 is here of the massively popular My Team post where you can get and give advice on your DT plan team!

Now that the Assisant Coach Team Picker is available for us to use, we can actually start putting our 2013 AFL Dream Team squads together knowing ALL of the official positions and prices for the game.

If you were a tightarse and didn’t subscribe to the Assistant Coach last year, then you can still use the Fanplanner over on FanFooty.

Make sure you post your team in an easy to read format to that people can easily see your squad and it’s positions. Also, it’s handy to chuck in there how much cash you have left. See the previous ‘My Team’ posts on how this has been done in the past.

Please be constructive with your comments. If you expect some advice on your team, make sure you help others! We’re a big happy family here at DT Talk!

      Your fwd line has not one gun in it.
      You have no real captain option.

      You can take risks with mid pricers, but you prolly need to work on a safer structure.

      Move wright an zorko forward if your keen on keeping them.
      Why put such potentially top forwards into a midfield where they will not score like a premo mid?

      Each to their own, I’m just throwing my 2 bobs in;-)

      Hit the restart mate. Look to have 3-4 top end players on each line and work you mid priced players and rookies around that. That team is very unique and won’t be very consistent

    Option one: B. Goodes and M. Jones
    OR
    Option two: S. Colquhoun and B. Crouch

    Need help with this because I don’t find Colquhoun getting games and Goodes is the only other mid/back rookie I see getting at least a little bit of game time. However to complete the trade I’d have to trade out Crouch for Jones. I have also already got Stevenson and Pittard.

    Would you recommend downgrading Duffield to Stevenson and upgrading Embley to Stanton, or just keep it the same as it is? Apart from that I’m pretty set considering it’s only January.

      I’m starting to turn my back on the 5-gun Mids. Yet another option is team 2 but going Swan to Gaz (Gaz always starts seasons well but Swan can take a little longer to reach his season average) and then Wines –> Embley. All of the options have some merit.

        Yeah that’s a good idea. I just thought of another option, swap Swan and Murphy/Stants with Ablett and Embley, then upgrade Stevenson to Duffield/Grimes. What do you think of that mate?

          January 10, 2013 at 3:34 pm

          Well, my forecast averages have you losing 30ppg from the first two then probably gaining that much from the Def upgrade. Then when you consider the slight amount of captaincy points you’d lose from ditching Swan for Ablett and also the odd VC score to slap on Stants (if you chose him) then you’d probably be at a slight loss ppg wise, but you would then have the trading power of Embley, who will be around 370k after 6 rounds, which certainly wouldn’t be the case with Stevenson. That’s the evaluation, but the decision is yours.

            Sorry mate, was busy. But if you feel that Cloke can be a keeper then yes, definitely. I don’t have Cloke at this stage as with only six forwards I’m aiming to have all my keepers going 95+, meaning Cloke would have to do as well as he did in 2011 which will be no easy feat.

      Not sure if I’m allowed to plug other sites (it’s not mine), but you can sign up for free to fanfooty (http://www.fanfooty.com.au/) and use their fanplanner. It has all the prices for the players and you can build your team there and port it here, or swap players in an out etc.

      Maybe see whether you come in under the cap and then re-post the team? It’s usually easier for people to comment if they know how much cash you have left so they can suggest upgrades etc.

    So using top 8 mids you could get a team like this, I wonder how it would pan out?

    I’m guessing its not viable(sorry if you feel I wasted your time, just merely showing what you can get with top $$ 8 mid), there may be a few donuts here and there, and theres not enough value around the place and not always playing rookies for cash generation and points.

      bit of team fiddle, came to this logically. However, had to add Vardy and Varcoe to fill field posi’s and rnd 12 byes. Personally I dont think they are that great DT selections but do the job to get the rnd 12 bye players filled up nicely. Thoughts? Got an extra uber mid in there, and rate K.Mitchell and O’Meara to do well highly.

    ah, dream team, how i have missed you….

    firstly, f’ing great work on the DT talk site guys. i read and re-read your excellent write-ups on a daily basis. brilliant stuff.

    i have thrown together this team so far. it’s by no means set in stone, but i thought i would contribute my two cents to the general dialogue. am interested in what people think, of course.

    i’m not in it for the car, just league bragging rights and the thrill of the trade (if they set up a trade addict centre in melbourne i’d have to stop living in denial and check myself in first thing tomorrow)

    my main theory is that the midfield is where the points are at, so i’ve concentrated on that. as a result, my back and forward line are a bit weaker, but i would be planning to upgrade obviously as the season wears on.

    BACK: Goddard, Gibbs, Enright, Broughton, Staker, Docherty (Terlich, Colquhoun)

    MID: Swan, Ablett, Pendlebury, Stanton, Rockliff, Fyfe, Crouch, O’Meara (T.Mitchell, Viney)

    RUCK: Goldstein, Leuenberger (Grundy, Currie)

    FORWARD: Franklin, Cox, Robinson, Varcoe, Daniher, Menzel (Kerridge, X.Richards)

    any thoughts appreciated. happy dreamteaming and bring on the season!

          look, to be honest, i don’t have a hell of a lot of confidence in enright, but if he plays 21 games and averages 80 ish as he did last year, i’d be stoked. i am just looking to have at least 4 defenders that i can leave and be certain they will play and rack up reasonable points until i can afford to upgrade. that’s the logic, anyway. quite frankly, if i had the cash, i would get a suckling or an adcock or even bloody shaw! but i would need to tinker with the rest of the team first cos i have zero cash left. i’ll have a think about it though. thanks again.

        Brett, I disagree. I don’t believe there are any players you ‘need’. There are players who are DT guns and whom it would probably be good to start with. I just think all of the players I’ve selected offer more value. Goddard probably won’t improve his average much, whereas the other Def premos all have the ability to increase their averge by 5-10 points. He will be my first upgrade target.

            That makes no sense Ryno. Even if I had Goddard in there, I’d still need 2 upgrades in Defence, why does it make a difference if I’m upgrading to Goddard or to Birch/Scotland/Heppell/Gibbs/ anyone else.

            Upgrading a cow to Goddard or a mid pricer to goddard isn’t burning a trade.
            That’s called “using” a trade.
            I have Goddard in my team but I can see ur logic in not starting him.
            I hope your wrong an he rips it up at the new club haha ;-)

          A lot of people (including myself) are in fact tipping him to increase his average by 5-10. But if you don’t think he will, that’s fair enough that you’re not picking him.

          I think Goddard potentially has the MOST improvement out of the premo defenders. Reason being is he has been earmarked purely for mid time and the bloke did churn out a 113pt average back in 2010 – the young Bombers will feel great security in getting to ball into his hands, my 2 cents worth :)

      G’Day Joke_R I know its early and people are throwing rooks around left right and centre but Ill give you one piece of advice being a South Australian get Grundy IN he already is two-three years ahead of Witts in talent and ability. And do yourself a favour leave Colquhoun alone. Loosing Chapman to the Tiges Pearce to Freo leaves massive holes in experience they are not going to throw Colquhoun in their with Pittard Jonas Moore all developing types and all yet to really establish themselves. Like I said I know its early but seriously, people considering Colquhoun need a re-think. Ps Viv Mitchie…. No good.

        Pittard Jonas Moore and Paul Stewart another will get the games early on and they have too, these are the guys who have been in the system for 3 years and Hinkley will want to see them for himselm unfortunately leaving Colquhoun applying his trade in the SANFL for a little while, he will get his chance but later on only.

      Depends on how you feel with your team. If you can just squeeze a squad under the cap but you think it is the absolute bee’s knees, guaranteed car-winning formula (i.e. you are happy with your side) then stick with it, but if you finish your squad with 50k spare and feel that you can only spend it for the sake of spending it and it won’t be of any great benefit, keep it and you’ll have more options in case of, say, injury or trading a spud rookie to another that’s just pumped out two tons before round 3 or something like that and if it isn’t needed, it’s a small head start to upgrades later on.

      Must be pretty keen on Duffman to pick him twice! Haha but that’s a very standard forward line, wouldn’t call it undercooked at all, assuming Dusty can go 95+ after having Choco on his case all preseason. Also, turn Daisy into Robbo. Daisy is still in a moon boot and Bucks played him forward this year, will he go back to predominantly midfield with Ball returning? Personally I don’t think he will. I see you’re favouring the more expensive premos in LeCras and Ball which is fair enough. I must admit I would be tempted to go Ball –> Embley, LeCras –> Knights, Heppell –> Pittard then Hrovat –> Murph or something like that, but if you’re keen on those mid-pricers then stick with them.

    DT just died!! Got this from VS

    Here is the details

    AFL FANTASY coaches will be allowed to make two trades a week, every round this season.

    The change gives coaches a maximum of 46 trades, up from 24 in 2012.

    However, with trades still limited to two per round, they cannot be saved up for later use.

    The increased number of trades is one of several changes to the AFL’s official fantasy game.

    The field structure has also been altered, with gameday squads now featuring six defenders, eight midfielders, two ruckmen and six forwards.

    In previous seasons it has been seven-six-two-seven.

    And coaches will also be allowed to set four emergencies each round, up from three in past seasons.

    This gives teams the ability to cover for late changes on every line – backs, midfield, rucks and forwards – for the first time in the game’s history.

    By popular demand, the green dot has been reinstated, giving coaches an easy snapshot of the ins and outs for their team every Thursday night.

    Unlike its major competitor, AFL Fantasy will not introduce a rolling lockout, with teams to be locked at the bounce of the first game of each round.

    This allows coaches the freedom to set their team for the weekend without having to worry about checking back before every match for late changes.

    It makes AFL Fantasy the game for those who want to have a life beyond fantasy football.

    As has already be announced, there will be a change in scoring during the bye rounds, with only the 18 best scores across each coach’s squad to count.

    And AFL Fantasy will continue with the same, easy to understand scoring system, which makes it easier for coaches to follow the progress of their players during matches.

    An announcement on new game formats will be made in the coming weeks.

    I have gone with Guns n Rooks strategy (except rucks) and left a bit more cash in hand for upgrades early on, now having 44 trades. I dont like having this amount of trades but it will make scoring higher, the serious DTers should never have any donuts and it will make Bye rounds a lot less stressful

    Thoughts on this team would be appreciated!

      Really good forwards! This obviously means pretty weak backs but that could be a good plan. To do this you’d need at least 4 of your back rooks getting regular games, and as a Port supporter I’d put Pittard ahead of Stevenson and Colquhoun.
      Nice midfield with a good unique in Deledio there. Well done!

    Two trades a week has not ruined the game, just changed it. I actually like it, I think it will force more uniqueness between starting squads as risks can easily be overturned. It also means players with an easy early draw can be picked and traded after a few rounds. This is my initial thinking, I’m looking at going with two Sydney midfielders as they play GWS then GC first two rounds. Hanley also has a great early draw, and Cox should start well with NicNat being eased into the season. I’m happy to take the risk of no Goddard, and Ablett as the only real captain choice as realistically it’s only going to be for four or five rounds, and is a great POD from 99% of teams.

    B: D. Stanley, B. Gibbs, P. Hanley, G. Broughton, L. Brown, J. Pittard (L. Stevenson, D. Terlich)

      Sylvia. The only possible thing that could make Goodes a premo again would be playing Tippett, Reid and a resting ruckman/LRT up forward, forcing Goodes further up the ground. I wouldn’t bank on it, plus I like Sylvia this year.

    with now there being more trades to be used is it still as important to keep our dpp links. i am still planning on keeping my ruck links but for our midfield to back line and forward line links, i was thinking of getting rid of these now that it is so easy to use more trades and not need to bother switching our teams around. I currently have s.mayes and s.coloquhoun in my midfield giving me links to both my forward line and back line should i keep these two there or switch them for better only centre rookie options. your thoughts on this would be great. thanks

      I reckon it could still occasionally allow you to use one trade where you would have had to use two without DPP, allowing you to use the other trade for the round on something productive. But yes, I think the value of it has dropped slightly as you don’t have to save trades as much.

    Now that we know there will be 2 trades per week, every week, is anyone looking at NRoo for the first 5 rounds? He plays GCS, Rich, GWS, Ess and Syd, where he had the following scores against in 2012.

    Rnd 1 GCS: 126 and 136
    Rnd 2 Rich: 100
    Rnd 3 GWS: —
    Rnd 4 Ess: 135
    Rnd 5 Syd: 100 and 65

    Average: 110.3 and expect a score of around 110 against GWS as well.

    As far as I’m concerned he is locked. If he can get those scores he should rise quite significantly from his starting price of 441k. Which will make a great upgrade to Stevie J who will hopefully be over his traditional slow start . Stevie J starts at 501k so if he gets those scores and Johnson has his slow start you would expect NRoo to make up that 60k for a straight swap.

    So anyone locking him in?
