My Team 2021: Version 1.3

There’s been plenty of My Team chat, so add some more!

Fantasy is open for 2021! It’s quite a bit earlier than usual, so there’s no excuse for not having time to play with your team for what we hope will be a normal season coming up.

The first lockout of the season will be 7:25pm AEDT, Thursday 18 March at the bounce of Richmond v Carlton.

Chat in the comments about your team and whatever else Fantasy related. If you’re posting your team, make sure you put it in so it’s easy to read and include remaining cash out of your $13m salary cap. For all prices, click here.

    Question. Nathan Jones. Currently owned by 0.28% of teams and average of 60.3 for 2020 due to an injury effected year. Is he viable? Been fit all preseason so far and now that we dont have to deal with shortened quarters his midfield minutes should increase, an average of 80 isnt out of the question.

    As a MID-FWD, 32 years of age and 528k, is he worth it?

    Team as follows

    Laird Williams Day Markov H Young L Young Bench L Jones Highmore. I sure Aluniesheis, squid and mighty puds will happily critique this team with venom lol.

    So much of my team is dependent on the AAMI series game.

    Markov is in my team as he is a straight swap to Cumming and a few others.

    I Gould was in the mix as a certain starter it would make a huge difference to my team as Day to Gould would free up a heap of cash to fix my pathetic forward line.

    I am more confident in Highmore playing than Gould..

    Liam Jones on the bench seems excessive but I am firmly convinced we are going to need every dollar we have if we hope to fill our bench do i have a little wriggle room.

    No bench. No cash generation. It is not rocket science.

    My backline rating. Poor to acceptable with at least 4 upgrades needed.

      February 21, 2021 at 6:43 pm

      Nice to get a mention, cheers. Nice looking backline, good mix of value and rookies. Take it onboard if you want but as a Swans fan reckon Gould has as good a chance as Lachie Jones of playing R1 given Mills moving into the midfield frees up a spot. Also think Milera and Harmes might be worth a look over Day purely due to the price gap (Think Day will be great but maybe not much better than the other two). Not overly confident in Lachie Young playing but Markov and Cumming are pretty similar pick whoever plays. Overall nice backline though, hope this wasn’t too venomous lol.

      I actually pretty much agree with Puds, in particular Milera is possibly one of the better back picks going around this year in def, I was off him but when looking back he has always seemed about to break out then gets hit by injury, could be this is the year it comes together, especially with Laird moving into the guts the Crows will be looking to his rebound. Otherwise be prepared with a few options come r1, like you say, to jump on any bonus rook to free up cash. I feel you can afford to take a punt across the backline without it doing too much damage if it doesn’t go to plan.

          Had Steele and Gaff but went to Merrett and Walsh instead. Just think those three (I have them all) all present big value given Cripps was limited by injury last year and Taranto similar then when he came back still seemed underdone. Not sure what the issue is with Walsh, stereotype third year breakout candidate with a reliable scoring ability (not reliant on any one stat) plus has been flying this preseason in a more inside role which he averaged 112+ in the back end of last year. You’re definitely right that Steele can be downgraded come R1 if needed but just feel there’s a few guys around the 700-730k bracket (Brad Crouch is another but obviously misses R1-R2) that there’s value to be had over guys like Steele (as much as I like him).

I’m not sold on Steele, has a lot to live up to after last season but I can appreciate why you might jump on, I’d look at going him down to Taranto or Walsh to free up some cash for hopefully similar return but it’s not my team soooo…

    Ricks.

    Grundy and Witts.

    I love Max but I think he he is fully priced and Witts is under priced as a stand alone ruck and I just thought Grundy’s body language at the end of the season was just so so.

    Rating. Different but but rational.

      Squid

      February 21, 2021 at 8:16 pm

      I also think Grundy is a must have, he’s ruckpig for a reason, r2 has gone from easiest pick of the season to a riddle with no answer, Witts is as good a solution as any, personally I’m probably going to go with a rook ruck if we have 2 starting come round 1 hopefully that way one sticks. Could all go horribly wrong but you’ve got to risk it for the biscuit.

        February 21, 2021 at 10:20 pm

        Definitely a big risk play but there’s always a chance of a risk paying off. Personally think if we get any rookie rucks it’s likely to be just Flynn, maybe Treacy from Freo but as soon as Tabener and Darcy are fit he’s likely out. After messing around with Naismith, Pittonet, Jacobs etc last year I’ll likely be sticking with two set and forget options and leaving the rookies for other lines. But a rookie ruck at R2 definitely has merit and Grundy at R1 offers some stability.

          Yeah, not sold on it yet but geez everything else looks soooo much better with the extra cash to splash, don’t forget Campbell and Tilthorpe too…. Actually I just changed my mind, if 2 play I’m totally doing it, stuff it, every year despite all the planning and thought I put in by 2 games in my captain gets KO’d in the first 5 minutes of a game, someone pings a hammy, blows a knee, forgets how to play, or gets coached out of it, often 2 or more of these happen and it’s season over with a rank of 40k-80k, no cash and a battle to claw back to the top 5000. It’s never due to bad decisions (I make a few of them too), just bad luck, it may just be the sunday evening wines speaking but this year is balls out, no regrets, I won’t die not knowing fantasy footy. And if it all goes pear shape it will be a learning experience and I’ll still have my sensible supercoach team.

    Forwards. An absolute schmozzle , melting pot, bad beef stew.

    Currently stands as follows.

    Lobb Caldwell Stephenson J Hunt Schoenberg and 2MP with Cockatoo and Rowe on the bench and E Smith as utility

    Lobb there as R/F but feel sick in the stomach with that choice. Foot hotspots are scary Daniher and Cameron could be awesome value. Rooks unknown. My forwards are a Brussel sprout nightmare.

    Redeeming factor. The Statesmen is running with Phillips and Rozee and Craig the winner seems to be in the same river. Daniher Cameron and Stephenson in his team.

    Cameron and Daniher and Hogan great value as key forwards Rozee could do anything. Rowe may be the only took I have any confidence in starting with. E Smith is probably a pipe dream but Cockatoo at 240k gives me some solace.

    Sigh….. I NEEDED TO VENT!!! Lol.

      Ahhhhh, yeah………. up to here i was thinking “damn, what was this guy worried about” then this, THIS is what you’re worried about. First up the good, Cameron and moron moostaka probably won’t be awesome value. (Seriously that lip caterpillar represents all that is wrong in the world right now)
      But apart from Stephenson, if he’s decided to grow up and try, and just maybe Caldwell this is not great. Per above Steele down to Walsh/Taranto/different flavour at similar price, frees up a bit of cash to get Lobb (interesting prospect btw) to someone less scary like a Phillips or Heeny but that may not be enough, Witts down to Campbell, Tilthorpe, Treacy Meek or Flynn frees up a bucket load of cash to play with to pimp all your other lines, surely a couple play? It’s a big risk sure but the payoff could well be worth it then some.

        Flynn Campbell Treacy Meek are all options as I have the downgrade upgrade option rather than having to upgrade with a downgrade choice. Example. Cockatoo to a 170k is much easier than a 170k non playing room to Cockatoo.

    So much to be revealed with the AAMI series. Teams to look totally different. I just prefer to have “cash up” options to downgrade options to fit what ever team structure you are running. Of course I could be totally incorrect lol. I probably am.

        Dimma in the Dusty story today said Prestia should be right for r1, still sounds a bit touch and go though so have a plan B just in case. Really like the team, easily the closest to mine I’ve seen, I’m a bit more midprice in the mid for a stronger fwd. I like that you’ve got upgrade funds and your on field rooks give you flexibility for r1 tinkering, very nice.

      Some great picks, but I can’t get around Flynn as your R2. He’s only played against NEAFL quality guys so far and will get monstered some weeks.

      All the while other teams will have Gawn/ROB/Witts etc. Find the cash to put him as your R3. I’d downgrade Mills to a rookie like Gould/Highmore and then use the cash to at least get Witts or a decent R2.

    Most well-balanced team I’ve seen so far: ubers, few considered mid pricers with potential to turn into ore so and mainly higher end rookies on field likely to play. 18K spare. Thoughts on how to improve this team?
    DEF: Lloyd Laird ZWill Cumming Chapman Highmore // 170 170
    MID: Merrett Walsh Serong Rowell Heppell WPhillips Powell Robertson // 170 170
    RUC: Gawn Grundy // 170

      I rarely comment on teams but I will this time. I will be totally.surprised and very happy if Heath Chapman plays R1 with Alex Pearce returning. I doubt you will get your 3 mid rookies playing. You definitely will not get 8 170k playing rooks on the bench.

        Robertson might not play but Phillips and Powell should and there’s also Downie, Campbell, Pedlar etc to have if you’re going three mid rookies (Have that currently in my side). Chapman was excellent in Freo’s intraclub and they have really talked him up as a R1 debutant (Pearce is a lockdown key back so they’re different players).

      Nice structure.. haven’t seen many go as hard in the forwards as you have.

      But relying on a lot of hopeful rookies. Chapman did perform well in the intraclub but Freo’s back 6 appear to be locks so he’s risky. Powell hasn’t played at league level before.. so worried he’s a bit under developed and may not get early games.. and I think Perkins and Macrae are very much borderline too.

      Perkins is definitely not playing midfield, so relying on half forward numbers may mean he’s overpriced as a rookie.

      If you get lucky with rookies this will be a great starting squad… But rolling team announcements would be making me very nervous for R1.

      1 is 240 (90-100-50)
      2 is 240 (110-80-50)
      3. is no good- unless Sinclair is out

      least risk is 2 as ROB is a keeper like Dunkley and Rozee is a better chance of improvement than Witts.

        What makes you think Rozee is a better chance of improvement than Witts?

        Witts sucked last year – but he was coming off no preseason and was clearly struggling with a foot injury all year, kryptonite for big men.

        Albeit a different injury but when Gawn did his hammy a few years back he only managed high 80s for the rest of the season before banging out a 111 average the following year when healthy. Not to suggest Witts will go anywhere near that, but he had a 104 in 2019 and two years in the mid 90s in 2017 and 2018. If he’s fully healthy, there’s no reason why he doesn’t push triple figures again.

        We know Witts can do 20+ points better than last year. Rozee has had an interrupted preseason, so I’m not so confident he’ll be able to match that level of improvement.

    RUCK – Grundy and Nank (fullarton on bench)
    FWD. Danger, T.Phillips, Jezza*, Stephenson, Cockatoo*, J.Rowe (bench have Chugg, Bergman and then Flynn as UTL)

      I’m not a fan of Laird in midfield- you could find a better mid rookie option than L. Young. Not confident in Howe being a maximum fitness R1. Apart from Grundy who is your captain? Jezza/Stephenson or Howe to a rookie and upgrade Nank to Gawn, VC Grundy and captain Gawn.

    Grundy, Drapper (Flynn)

    S’bum, Dunkley, T Phillips, Caldwell, Stephenson, Rowe (Kelly, Bergman)

    Floating Interchange P Dowe

    I’m trying to work a team out around Neale and Grundy (2 Pigs) which I think will help over a whole season, plus adding a DPP Player as an extra Interchange will also help. I think adding Sier to my mids is a bit of a risk but with the changes to the pies Midfield he should get games
