My Team 2018: Version 3.0

JLT is here and so are plenty of team tweaks!

The JLT Series is here, so a new version of My Team. Version 3 will run through the JLT Series… so get your chatter happening as the games play out.

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.

    Hibberd, Crisp, K Kolod (POD), Seedsman, Naughton (???), Doedee (Watson, Cumming)
    Mitchell, Merrett, Martin, Kelly, Coniglio, Brayshaw (Freo), Dow, Kelly (Barry, Banfield)
    Gawn, Lycett (POD) (Cameron, Flynn)
    Smith, Walters, Petracca, Young, Christensen, Rayner (Ryan, Fritsch)

    Huge query on Nik Nat being fit R1.
    Lycett / Vardy share the role.
    Need to see Naughton but their is a spot open for him.
    K Kolod (if over concussions) should dominate again.

      I don’t think there will be any problem with Naughton if selected. Played 7 games in the WAFL averaging 14 disposals and 7 marks. Will definitely be in my team.

      The two rookies that I am closely looking at will be Kelly and Ryan. While their stats and goals scoring ability were great in the WAFL the one area that should be looked at over the JLT is their tackling pressure. Ryan only laid 39 tackles over 23 games and had 10 games where he had less than 2 tackles. Same with Kelly, 15 out of 23 games he laid 2 or less tackles playing as an inside midfielder.

    Think George Hewitt is a chance to improve his fantasy game by 15 points and hit the 90 mark and be an upgrade target in round 14. Listed as mid/fwd $535,000 (76), spent some time in the midfield last year and is highly regarded by Swans having finished 5th in their best and fairest. Very similar numbers to Heeney after two seasons and must be earmarked to spend more time in the midfield hopefully no tagging. Only spent 76% time on ground, with natural progression, and more midfield time must be a watch in the JLT.

    The big decision is do you fork out the additional $114,000 for Heeney as set and forget or Hewitt with the additional funds in other lines.

          Matt Crouch by a whisker but has more upside. Treloar has peaked, hit his high in 2016 for 111 average coming off previous two years in the low 100s. 7 scores below a 100 last year and similar the previous two seasons. 6 scores over 120 and his average marks are on a downward spiral every season.

          Matt is entering his 5th season and 80 game mark so is primed to move to elite level. Increased his average from mid 90s to 106 with 9 scores below 100. Is building his tank each year from tog in the 60s% to 77% last year. Averaged 114 after the bye with two low scores in the high 90s. Think he can average 110-115 with scores in the 120s on a regular basis. The only concern is that he does not pick up cheap marks but then he is an inside midfielder, however, his mark count is better than Treloar’s.

          Save the $9000.

      Monitor Hutch – he is excellent inside mid and given the departures we have all heard about he could be awesome. A lot of young inside mids spend a year or two apprenticeship tagging before being unleashed. Wouldn’t be surprised if someone like Duggan tags now instead to understand how the best move and go about it.

    February 27, 2018 at 6:04 pm

    These are my thoughts on some of the most popular picks in the midfield. Please comment on what you think about these players.

    Tom Mitchell – Unlikely to improve on his average of 127.2, but will be very useful as a set and forget captain. He is the best chance to be the highest averaging player in Fantasy.

    Patrick Dangerfield – Will maintain a similar average, but could spend extra time up forward, especially with the arrival of Gaz. However, he can still score well up forward, especially as he can kick goals.

    Gary Ablett – Gaz will average ~115. Before his injury that is. He is very likely to get injured (although you can never really tell), so you would hope he doesn’t get injured with 5 points Round 1. Also, he will not be able to dominate the midfield at Geelong as he did with the Suns, due to Selwood, Danger, Duncan & Menegola, and his role is thus unknown and he might get forward time. However, Chris Scott did mention Gaz would be playing as a midfielder (but coaches are not to be trusted).

    Zach Merrett – Surely he improves, as he is still quite young. He will improve his consistency over the preseason and he should average > 120. He is quite resistant to the tag and will dominate the weaker midfield of the Bombers. The only worry is whether the many players at Essendon meant to get more midfield time (Smith, Parish, McGrath, Stringer) might lead Zerrett to get less mid time.

    Taylor Adams – He should maintain a similar average, as he was one of the most consistent players in 2017 (lowest score 81). Without his DPP status, he will be a good POD. However, Collingwood has a tough draw to start the season, so he might lose a bit of cash at first and might be a good upgrade option later in the year.

    Dayne Zorko – He will average similarly in 2018, but he is inconsistent and will have both 60s and 150s. It is also unknown whether he can cope well with tags. He could be a good POD.

    Dustin Martin – Many people are betting on him to improve this season after a Brownlow season, but Hardwick says he will be spending more time up forward, where his scoring is unknown.

    Josh Kelly – Still young, so should have some improvement in him. However, he will get tagged more often this season, so could potentially score some low scores. After improving his average significantly over the past couple of years, you would expect him to do so again.

    Mitch Duncan – A good POD option. He is one of the most consistent players and has averaged around the 90s in the past few years. He should still have a similar amount of midfield time this year, if not more. If anything, the addition of Gaz should be beneficial as the ball will be in Geelong’s possession even more.

    Bryce Gibbs – Unknown role at Adelaide, and it is unknown whether he will get less midfield time and whether he is before Brad Crouch in the Crows’ pecking order. He did well in JLT1, albeit without Sloane and Brad Crouch in the team.

    Marc Murphy – Good POD, but it is likely his Fantasy numbers might decrease, especially without Gibbs as help in the midfield. He would also be more susceptible to a tag. However, he was also very consistent in 2017.

    Scott Pendlebury – Role will be more in the forward half and less Fantasy friendly. His numbers will decrease. Pass.

    Adam Treloar – A good option as he is underpriced. He is also generally a first half of the year specialist, but Collingwood has the worst draw of all the clubs in the starting weeks. He has also not been named in JLT1 due to soreness, so keep an eye out for him in JLT2.

    Rory Sloane – Will cop many tags throughout the year, so keep an eye out for whether he has improved in getting rid of tags. If he has, he could be the top averaging Fantasy player.

    Matt Crouch – He is still young, so he is likely going to improve. However, a major source of points for him is handballing, so unless he kicks or marks more, he may not be able to improve on his average significantly.

    Steele Sidebottom – A good POD and likely to get the ball a lot in a talented midfield. Is ready to assume a larger role given Pendlebury’s age. He is also quite consistent, unless he cops the odd tag.

    Dayne Beams – Heavily underpriced, and will increase his average to around 110. However, his durability is a problem and he is prone to injury.

    Nathan Jones – Pass.

    Jack Macrae – Will average ~105. His chances of improvement are strongly linked to whether the Dogs have a good year.

    Brad Crouch – Will improve if he is not injured. However, he is still under an injury cloud now so it is not clear whether he will be at top form when Round 1 comes. He might also get less midfield time with the arrival of Gibbs.

    Tom Rockliff – The Power will likely change his role every second week, and he may not get as much midfield time as at the Lions. He is competing with many players for a midfield spot. However, the upside is that he will benefit highly from being in a team which will win many more games than the 2017 Lions. This should theoretically increase his average by around 10 points. He is also underpriced due to playing the second half of 2017 with injury. However, his injury history is not good, and given he did not play JLT1, we should have to see something outstanding in JLT2 to be confident with picking him.

    Brad Ebert – Extreme first half of the year specialist from history. Will he break the trend this year? That is the question.

    Sam Menegola – Dodgy pick. High risk.

    Marcus Bontempelli – Could this be the year where he breaks out? Or will he continue being a much better actual player than Fantasy player?

    Lachie Neale – Underpriced from his bad 2017, but has some risk attached.

    Luke Parker – After all the Swans premos deproved in 2017, everyone is betting on one of the Swans to again average 110. Most people say it will be Parker, but I would prefer to not have to choose and just go with no Swans mids.

    Patrick Cripps – Too handball happy. However, he is still underpriced after his injury. However, he will not improve by too much.

    Lachie Whitfield – Breakout year could be possible after an interrupted 2017.

    JPK – Old, but could go 105+.

    Nat Fyfe – Not the best Fantasy scorer, but has been blessed with a good preseason and excellent JLT1

    Joel Selwood – Underpriced, but is aging and we cannot be sure if he has got it in him to go 100+ again.

    Stephen Coniglio – Has shown signs of coming back at the end of 2017. He should go 105+ and is a bargain.

    Dan Hannebery – Very interrupted pre-season. Pass.

    Jack Steven – Won’t improve enough to hold a midfield spot.

    Connor Blakely – From JLT1, he isn’t going to be in the high-scoring Freo half back role for enough of the game. Big, big risk.

    Luke Dunstan – High risk, high reward. He showed promising signs in the last few games of 2017, with six tons in his last six, and with an average of 87.6 for the whole year, he could be a bargain.

    Jack Redden – Had a good end to 2017, and his preseason and JLT1 have all backed him up to have a good 2018. He has previously averaged 110, so if he is able to stay in the best 22 at the Eagles, he should be a bargain.

    Dion Prestia – Should somewhat improve on his average. However, his injury is worrying.

    Lachie Weller – Should improve by at least 10, but takes up a precious midfield spot.

    Matthew Kennedy – Another big risk, he is touted to go into the midfield at Carlton this year with the departure of Gibbs.

    David Armitage – Unlikely to get anywhere near his 107 year. Pass.

    Jack Graham – Too expensive for a second-year player.

    JOM – Could potentially go 100+, especially since this is the best preseason he’s had in a while and he did very well in the Hawks’ intraclub. He is a massive bargain.

    That is all.

        This is pretty much my midfield watchlist. Trust me, you don’t want to see my other watchlists. My ruck watchlist is pretty much every single ruck in the comp as they all seem to have some reason to not pick them.

      Think you will find that there was a significant change with Cripps role last year and his kick to handball ratio which was in excess of 1:2 in previous years was getting towards evens in 2017. Most insiders have more handballs than kicks. Cripps averaged 107 after a slow 4 game start to the season before his injury in round 16.

      Probably a supercoach lock but should be entertained in Fantasy as he appears to have had a full prep to date. Definitely underpriced @ 98.

      I stopped reading when I got to Gaz.. How the f*ck do you claim he won’t dominate the midfield like he did at the suns?? You do realise he was sorounded by stars at the cats & he dominated. The guy is the greatest player of the modern era. . I’m sorry mate I know you put in a lot of effort but I don’t think you really know what your on about. & What is with your sh*t write up about Rocky?? Sorry mate but I’m pretty sure this is probably your 2nd year playing & you are just repeating crap you have heard other people say.

        Think he is closer to the mark than you here… Gaz may dominate when he can but how much will that be? Gaz is old and brittle. He was last at the cats in 2010 – 7 seasons, 110 games and a lot of injuries ago.
        Rocky has come in and joined the leadership group and is looking to do the team thing. He may tag, he may rest forward he may play a friendly role and average 130+. Speculative.

    If you had to pick 3 out of M.Crouch, Beams, Rockliff & Fyfe, who would you leave out? Why so?

          However, Fyfe is good value and the money can be spent elsewhere. Also, I wouldn’t want to risk the chance of Beams getting injured during a game again, especially at his age.

    He could have a ripper 2018 considering his last six scores were 107, 116, 100, 110, 118 and 103. And his average is just 87.6. Bear in mind he didn’t have a single ton in 2016, and only one in 2015. Personally, my D5 is being contested between Redden, Dunstan, Prestia, Selwood and Fyfe (currently Redden cos JLT)

      He was the captain of the U18 TAC cup team back then, and finally looks like he’s transitioning to the player everyone thought he would be. In saying that, Im not sure if he will continue those 100+ scores that he needs to be a worthwhile pick.

      I would go for both Fyfe and Redden ahead of him

      Think Blakely will be required in the midfield. Freo need to find out who can play and settle the defence out of Tucker, Ryan, Logue, Johnson, Hamling, Hughes, Pearce, Wilson and maybe Cox. Sutcliffe, Spurr and Sheridan will not be there in the next two years.

          Coniglio is more value and is underpriced due to injury.
          Fyfe’s best of 105 is not as good as you would expect it to be, for a Brownlow-winning season. Coniglio has not reached his peak yet and he has averaged 103 in 2016, and that’s not even a Brownlow-winning season (he would probably average 120 if that were so). Fyfe is not underpriced for an external reason – we just expect him to do better this season. Therefore, Coniglio is less risky.

      People prefer to rank higher overall, than try win a league. Sometimes winning a league means trading out a solid player, for someone else who has a better ceiling and hoping they score big for the win.

      It’s mostly about matchups in leagues, rather than the most amount of points you can get.

      If you look at the average for his two season games, it’s 86. However, if you count his finals games, it drops to 77.4. I think this reflects his true average more closely and he will average around 82 (the extra points come because he hasn’t gotten injured and has had a full preseason, which will help him). On the positive side, an improved Adelaide lineup with Gibbs will benefit him as he will be able to slot into their best 22, with not many contesting his position.

          I originally considered Houston for the same reason, but decided against it as Port’s roles are very subject to change and you’re never sure who’s going to get what role.

    hello, decided to post my POD side again, changed it up slightly, love to here some thoughts…

    Def: Simmo, Hibbo, Witho, Shaw, Murray, Doedee
    Mid: Titch, Martin, Sidebottom, Neale, Blakely, Brayshaw, Dow, LDU
    Ruck: Nank and gawny
    FWD: heeney, smith, robbo, christensen, stephenson, fritsch
    got 27k left

    1. Murray wasn’t picked in JLT side so thats worrying me slightly. I can swap Witho for Sicily and upgrade murray to naughton/obrien
    2. Martin -> Merrett?
    3. Not sure about picking Neale n Sidebottom, doubt they will be top 8 by the end of the year.

    sold on blakely tho, hopefully he gets dpp rnd 6 and i can swap him back, and my backline will be one upgrade away from being complete xo

    pls discuss xx

          on the contrary i love the sidey pick. i think he could really excel this year with the main midfielders playing defence for them, sidey will get more midfield time and theyll love it in his hands.

            You’re delusional if you think Adams and Pendles will play more than 10% defence.

    Thoughts on Sinclair now that Tippet has retired? Should mean an extra 10HO a game at least, better JS too

    Thoughts on Lycett? Nic Nat and JJK under injury clouds; but even if both play I think eagles will be happy to play all of Nic Nat, Lycett, Vardy, JJK. Although now I type it that does seem very very tall.

      Lycett based on a statistical standpoint isn’t a bad option, especially if Nic Nat isn’t right. But I don’t see it being worth it if all are named

      Sinclair will certainly get better JS, but that ‘better’ JS is still worse than for any side’s primary ruck (yes even Lobb), because it is hard to differentiate Naismith and Sinclair. IMO Naismith is a better hitout guy but Sinclair is better in most other aspects. Also, you never know with Horse as his coach.

      I would say so. Don’t care about how many you have from the same team, just think Crouch is a better pick right at this moment.

    Should we put a line through Treloar? Or is he still a viable option? Was looking hard at him

    thoughts on Christian Salem at D3/4. Mini breakout last year averaging 85. I reckon he could go 90-95 and he has been earmarked for an inside mid role which means more potential for tackles. He had 21 CBA last weekend and i reckon if he can increase his disposals from 21.6 a game to around the 25 mark then that top 6 defender position is well within reach. Really good player who is ready to become a star in the AFL. Played 46 games in 4 years but has finally had a good pre season after niggling injuries the last few years.

    would love to know what you guys reckon?

      Go for it, good POD. I personally prefer McDonald or Crisp, but I don’t see anything wrong with the pick.
