      I like him if he fits your structure, should be solid for low 80s (BCV). Assuming that’s with Roberton at D5 and only one rookie on field?

    Solid but I think it’s a bad move to have no bench cover in your defence with Watson and Williams missing out. Definitely need to find a way to get Brander or Starcervich off the ground. I think given the rookies available you should send a premo MID back to a Crisp/Smith type as Pickett is worthy of being on ground.

    Personally I would also play Budarick on ground and switch out King for C.Taylor and you’ll need to find a replacement for Xerri who also missed the cut.

    Thoughts on my team lads?
    Def- Smith, Birch, Houston, Roberton, Docherty, Noble Bench-Brander/Starcevich
    Mid-Viney Macrae cripps mitchell anderson rowell green adams Bench – Pickett/Brown
    Ruc- Ruckpig/jacobs Bench-naismith
    Forward-king martin brayshaw petracca rozee budarick Bench sturt taylor

    I have too many rookies- how to upgrade?

          Yep. I think your side is solid although I think the issue is too many mid-pricers rather than too many rookies. You’ve only got 5 rookies on ground while most team structures have 6.

          I think the best rookies for both scoring potential and job security are in the MIDs so maybe considering sacrificing a premium there to get Pickett on ground and use the cash elsewhere.

          I’d be trying to upgrade at least one of Birchall or Noble to a proper premium as a starting point.

          Taylor or Cavarra also likely to score more than King in your FWDs.

    What should I do fellas?
    D.cameron or Xerri (on bench) & Macrae or J.kelly

    Or Naismith (on bench) & Fyfe or one of the crouch boys?

      March 20, 2020 at 7:02 pm

      i would be doubt Naismith and Fyfe. You will need to make money from the bench this year!! And Fyfe will be literally 10 points less on average compared to what you can get with the extra money made form Naismith to upgrade later on. Much more upside mate!

    I was looking through some of the stats this morning from the blues v tigers and pies v dogs. Interesting if nothing else. (yes i know! I need to get a life!)

    In the pies/dogs game there were 15 scores of 70+. (The old 85+)
    On ownership there were only 2 players in excess of 4% ownership being Grundy(62% and 114) and Macrae(35% and 84.).

    The rest were as follows


    Bailey Smith 95 4%
    Crozier 79 0%
    Hunter 71 1%
    Keath 71 1% The dogs were all hype and no bite last night..understatement!


    Howe 110 4%
    Sidebot 107 1%
    T Adams 105 2%
    Mayne 94 1%
    Pendles 90 2% When will we ever learn. He is a legend both as a player and in fantasy.
    Mihocek 82 1%
    Maynard 76 1%
    Hosk-Ell 73 0%
    Daicos 70 1%

    There were only 10 players to score 70+ in the tigers/blues game with Dusty Doc Cripps and Jack Martin owned 57%, 50% 33% and 15% respectively. (The 1st 2nd 3rd and 5th highest scorers.) The other 6 had 8% ownership or less.

    the others as follows

    Pestia 89 7%
    Bolton 83 4%
    Soldo 71 3%

    Casb 82 8%
    Murphy 78 5%
    Kade S 72 8%

    What do we take out of this? Not much apart from the pies might have some hidden gems when it comes to a POD with very low ownership. As i said, I need to get a life! Self isolation sucks. Everyone keep well and remember there are 7 games this round left to go hopefully!

    Ended up going for the Naismith at R2 and four mid rookies (Rowell, Anderson, Green, Pickett) structure which means only one rookie in defence and forwards. Just reckon the mid rookies will score best and last longest, anyone similar?

    This has turned into a bit of a joke, as far as I can see. Jack Crisp 59, Bont 51, A. Brayshaw 44, and that’s only the premiums.

    And Brett Bewley is looking good for Freo at 367 K and a score of 89 should I get downgrade Bewley to him and have 360 odd cash in bank for another upgrade,

      The game just went past him a little which s fine considering how long he’s missed. He’s got high ownership and should be good for now on

    I know the season resuming is miles off (if it ever does), but am starting to give serious thought to trading Grundy down to Jacobs to get some of the lower scoring rookies (e.g Green) off field given they will likely make way for fit again stars. Thoughts???
