UPDATED: The most unstable line. The news of Devon Smith’s elevation to the leadership group and great pre season cements him a spot up the order at number two. Issac Heeney got the boot after his injury setback on top of the increased forward role with Buddy out. DT Talk favourite and tackling machine Hugh Greenwood comes in on the back of my detective work confirming my thoughts of an inside mid role.

    Where does Stewart sit amongst the backs. Injured but still should be right round 1. Knocking on the door or not worth a look?

      Fully priced so not starting with him is the right move especially with the injury.

      Ebert looks like a solid option, $100k cheaper than Walters and more reliable than Wingard.

    That F6 could go to anyone, I reckon a 90 average just about does it. Wingard and Jordan Dawson big chances

    Also, surely Gaff is a top 8 mid? Would have him in front of Taranto and Coniglio

      I imagine the criteria is probably the 22 players Roy considers to be the best, on a rolling basis, based on form and potential.
      And rumour and gossip.

    I’ve played fantasy for 10 years remind me how Dusty and Devon are the same price yet their 2019 average is vastly different 79 – 97 I always get confused by this. In other forms SC RDT Devon is much cheaper

      Agreed. Odd. And yet, I’m chasing the value of Devon over Dusty atm, as I see more upside in Devon … as I’m starting to wonder how much more Dusty can be bothered, seeing he’s got 2 medallions, 1 chas and 1 norm hanging around his neck.

          Old mate Greg here will call it baiting, but I want to make it very clear that it rules aren’t made up on the run like this flog wants people to believe. Bennell has had a 35% discount applied to his most recent average… like ANY OTHER PLAYER. Simple rules. Just because they’re different doesn’t make it ‘made up’.

            For someone who thinks they know it all, it’s a wonder you didn’t get the memo on the 80% of time he played as a midfielder in his four WAFL games last season; which any player who didn’t play a senior game in the previous season has been awarded their respective positions by Champion Data. But you know, just keep doing what you do.

            🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ – Here’s some more free info. He had 70 disposals in the WAFL, 2 were inside F50.

            Quote:

            “ Champion Data statistics show Bennell played 80 per cent of his four WAFL matches last season in midfield and only won two of his 70 disposals in the forward 50.”

      G’day Euman, get yourself educated on the rules here: https://dreamteamtalk.com/2020prices/

      These are in place so that players who get discounted, like Devon Smith, don’t become the gimmie picks that they could be due to a much lower than usual average. May it ‘over-price’ players, maybe (even though that is a weird thing to say when they actually have a discount applied), but it sure is a hell of a lot better than just giving people too many free picks!

      Also, what is nice is that there are rules in place… that’s something I have learned in my time playing Fantasy sports. Not because I think everything needs to be black and white, but because others can’t deal with it if it isn’t (but then you get the flipside from other coaches, but that says more about them than the rules…).

    I can feel a certain pig knocking on the door very early in the piece boys
    If you have not considered placing Tom into your midfield yet you might want to
    If he is able to hit over 120 in the first couple of games he could set you up for the rest of the year
    Not much talk about him at this stage so he could be a point of difference if he is over looked by lots of coaches
