My Team 2018: Version 2.1

It has been a week since Fantasy opened so it’s time for a new My Team!

Fantasy is back! The game opened up last week and 20 thousand coaches have already got their teams in. They’ll be tweaked hundreds of times over the next 50 days until lockout.

Post your team (in an easy to read format) and discuss where it’s at in the comments below. Now that we have My Team cranking, discuss any players, team structure, etc in the comments. As always, keep it civil and if you’re advice, make sure you dish out some of your own (make sure it well thought out and not blatant trolling – we’re totally over that after 10+ years of DT Talk!).

Get keen for a massive season ahead.

    Laird, Jacobs and Dow (M6)
    vs
    Hibberd, Nankervis/under 620k ruck, O’Meara (M6)

    Would love thoughts, more leaning towards the first option

    Welcome Home Son…

    In news that will delight AFL Fantasy coaches around the country, Rockliff said he would play a similar on-field role at the Power to what he did at the Lions – playing predominately in the midfield while spending some time up forward.

    “It’ll be much the same as what it’s been in the past, midfield-forward,” Rockliff said.

      3 is more typical guns n rooks, but Brayshaw at D3 scares me.

    $43K in the kitty

    Thinking if Cumming isn’t named, but Freeman and Barry are Ill field Freeman and upgrade Cumming to Coffield / O’brien

    If Nic Nat doesn’t show enough in the JLT Ill swap to Lycette, who will surely be backup or #1 ruck when Nic Nat needs a rest and avg 82.26 in 2016 when playing with Nic Nat. He had an 8 in that time to which brought his avg down.

        February 7, 2018 at 6:31 pm

        I have read more then one article, saying he is dominating the inside mid role. He loves to tackle so id see his numbers increasing to 80+
        When forward he knows how to kick a goal.
        Essendon are a fantasy friendly team
        They should be pretty strong this year and have the ball in their forward line, at the moment Daniher is their main target but Stringer gives them another option.
        So a few more reasons than 1 article

            Worst case downgrade to a rookie bolter and use that cash elsewhere.

      If I had to make that choice I would lean toward Jacobs only because of the “Archie” affect on Stef. I believe that Stef is the better ruckman but the Archie affect is real average 86 last season with him in the team!

      You’re going to have 3 round 10 byes, with Barlow/Rocky being premos, and Hanley pretty much being one too. That could hurt you.

      Not sure of the Tuohy, Crozier or Stringer picks myself, any insight to why you chose them?

      Overall a good base, if you stuck with this team you could have some picks that pay off that others aren’t keen on.

        Thanks Buckz, your about the only person bar a few that know Fantasy, Tuohy because I believe the only way is up, he is going to be the number one ball rebounder off half back with Mackie gone. He has done a little bit of work to do stints in the middle as well over the pre season. Stringer is from articles and a little bit of re search. Crozier for his predicted roll. JJ, Murphy and Biggs were able to get points from there two years ago. Murphy gone, JJ going to the wing and Biggs being pushed back down the order I feel like Crozier can go 85+

    I’m not mucking around when picking my mid premiums, may as well get the best of the best from the start. Guys like Coniglio/Parker/Cripps/Fyfe/Neale etc are all cheapish and will improve but they aren’t top 8-10 mids. You get those guys, your stuck with them. I think you want 3 big dogs, a guy that’ll improve to 110 (Crouch,Treloar,Crouch etc) and an underpriced uber in Beams/Rocky

      Nice team Tiger. I would upgrade Lobb, I think he will average between 80-88, that is not terrible but RDT do not upgrade player positions during the season, so Lobb will not gain Ruck status. Like the pick of Fritsch, kicked a few goals last year in the magoos, hopefully he gets a chance early, also like the Witts pick. Good luck.

        Thanks for the feedback. Admittedly I’m yes and know with Lobb. The absence of Mumford facilitated high scores in the finals last season. I could end up selecting Robbo or one of Dalhaus or Mclean. The Bulldog’s really is a question can Beveridge be trusted not to alter the midfield mix like he did last season and in 2016 moving Macrae out of the mids for several games.

    How much of an impact does Heeney’s surgery hinder you picking, or not picking him?

    Starting to doubt whether he will be worth the 650k in the first let’s say 6 rounds till he’s probably in or close to being peak performance.

    Of course barring injury he’s still going to be probably top 3 fwds (dependent upon DPP).

    Also currently got a little smoky POD in defence with the name of Dylan.

        Averaged 105 when he scored 80+ during the 2017 season. I feel the saints are going to be close to the top 8 this year, and are going to facilitate their offence through players like Roberton.

      It seems Congiolo the last few seasons has been on the verge of becoming an ultra premo without achieving it because either he does a run with role at times or there are too many Giants mids who take points away from him.

    Jake Kolojashnij to have a decent year. You heard it here first. Had some ok scores on the wing, he will fill the hole, especially with touhy looking to be offensive this year. 85+

      Had done some research on him, did look promising, however it appears to me as though he will fill Lonergan key defence role (he does stand at 193cm) rather than Mackie’s role across half back.

        Why does every one keep saying that?? i’ve said this 100 times & i will keep saying it.. You don’t need the top 3 to do well. ill give you guys some numbers to use as an example.

        In 2012 the top 3 were (in order) Swan Ablett & Beams, In 2013 Swan & Ablet were still in the top 3 (2nd & 3rd). Since then of the 2013 top 3 only ablett was in the top 3 the following year. of the 2014 top 3 only Stef was in the top 3 the following year. of the 2015 top 3 no one was in the top 3 the following year & of the 2016 top 3 only 1 player was in the top 3 the next year.

        There is a pattern of the top players not always being the top players the following year. If you don’t want to start with the top 3 then don’t. History says they wont be the top 3 at years end anyway.

          A well constructed post.

          The increased magic number makes for an interesting discussion around the selection around Mitchell, Dangerfield etc.

          One bad game and they will drop so much.

          The upside for their price is minimal to non existent. It is ones ability to pick undervalued players who will perform and increase in price. It is money management also.

          DT, to me, is very similar to the stock market and I believe buying Mitchell at the start is like buying at the top.

          Sure, I understand, he is most likely to be the highest points scorer this year as well as a default captain option.

          There are so many quality players who are underpriced, due to a number of various reasons.

          I currently have Rockliff at M1, with my M6 priced at around $650k.

          The key is, IMO due to the higher magic number, to have extra funds to buy the rooks who are most likely to get the most games with the highest average.

          It is more likely than not that these are not likely to be the players priced at $170k.

          I understand many talking about trying to have the top 8-10 in each position at years end, but how often does that happen.

          There are plenty of unknowns including injury, suspension and DPP changes.

          My structure may change prior to rd 1, but i see no need to consider changing my team until I see some AFLX and JLT action.

          Everyone will be flat out changing their teams when rd 1 selection happens anyway.

            When you’re picking Titch, Danger, Ablett etc, you’re not picking them to go up in price, you’re not worrying about their price at all. You’re picking them because you know what you will get from them.

      Few interesting selections. Not sure about Wilson, don’t think he’s going to increase his output much so won’t earn you much cash as a mid pricer. Maybe use his money to upgrade Hanley or Seedsman to a Hibberd type.
      Like your premos for your mids.
      I like that you’ve gone Grundy only concern with him is the Mason Cox affect. He only scored over 100 once when Cox was in the team last year.
      Menegola is a ballsy pick but I like your mid pricers in Robbo and Ah Chee.
      Rooks could do with another look. J. Smith and Wigg are currently coming back from injury with a seriously stunted preseason. English should only be a ruck bench option.

            Its a tough one, but I reckon with him being solo he should average around 85-95 (with more hit outs maybe a goal) so end of season probably a F5 or F6 position. Ill be starting with him

            What did you think about M Crouch and Jacobs or Treloar and Ryder
