    Stick with this team until we see scratch games played. As a Port supporter I’m not confident of Jones breaking into their backline. Other iffy rookies may or may not get games, but I think this is the basis of a good round 1 team.

        Ugle-Hagan will be in and out throughout the year, mcdonald is a bit pricey for a KPP i’d recommend hollands, perkins, or campbell. Mitchell is a risky one, Clarko has said he wants more options rotating through midfield.

          Hey mate, just here to help, but your team is honestly shambles at the moment. Few tips would be for starters, you never want players like Phillips and Caldwell in the midfield. Due to them being mid/fwd i would be putting them in your forward line and getting rid of one of dangerfield or dunkley and then choosing between Phillips and Martin for that forward spot. Fill the mid spots left by Phillips and Caldwell with 250k rookies and spent the money left over to upgrade draper to Grundy or gawn. As it sits now you will really struggle, especially having no starting rucks that will be top 2 by end of season. Good luck bud

            I agree. Remove Phillips and Caldwell from mid by selling premo F .Witts could be good r2, so cash needs to be generated to buy Gawn or Grundy. Just advice and fine tuning b4 round 1. Good luck.

    Firstly if you keep Flynn as R2 you will be giving who ever you play on match day a 50-60 points start as for rookies mate in SA said rowe will play round 1 Kelly from Collingwood good chance and Jones from the bombers the rest who knows find out just before round 1

    • Avatar

      Squid

      February 23, 2021 at 5:19 pm

      Flynn as R2 only gives your opponent a 50-60 point start if you don’t spend the extra $500-$600k on improvements elsewhere. Realistically ruck rooks tend to be better scorers than most and if you look at how strong his other lines are, fwd and back in particular I reckon you can see where the 50-60 points are being made up with interest.

        Avoid Flynn at R2, so hard to trade should he not play for whatever reason. You have to go up.

        I personally, from my selections have the money to spend and Gawn in my opinion has the greatest chance to be the top scorer in the game after the first 6-8 weeks.
        Also gives you a great captaincy option.

        You’re definitely missing key forward rookies in the 200k.

        B Campbell, Cockatoo & F Macrae I see as being some of the best available, personally I have all three firmly locked into my side.
        I would also include T Powell, T Brockman and C Downie to the list of who you don’t own.

        To answer your initial question, no I think Lloyd is too expensive this year to start with.

      Will Phillips is basically the only confirmed mid rookie guaranteed to play for nearly a full season. Get him in. Schoenberg selection is a little odd as well but I don’t dislike it. Also you have only 1 captain option in Grundy, so get a big dog like RockPig as a reliable captain option with a high ceiling

        A difference between 2021 and 2019 looks like the rolling lockout. This helps rather than hinders. It is not dramatic to say the luck of the rolling lockout is why I won. I could not have looped Sholl and Greaves for 3 weeks with a donut if not for the rolling lockout. I bought in Rory Thompson.

        Take R1 as an example, in previous years we often lumped for a dud in the Carlton v Richmond game as a rookie and then by Round 2 they were gone. But now, you can delay choosing the rookie, maybe Macrae from Collingwood in game 2 on bench with EMRG and if he scores 60 plus, you could then chose a rookie donut – maybe an emergency. For example, an emergency from a Sunday game.

        Whilst not that great an option in previous years, this year like last year it has merit. And if a rookie goes well you missed, then in Round 2 it becomes an easy sideways. I think playing the rolling lockout with VC and C and with rookies on ground and bench will give coaches an advantage who wait for the teams to be named and play rookies on bench in early games.

        The strategy change of the rolling lockout is a massive difference and must be factored in.

        Option 1 just, however, Serong is in fact in my side and Simpkin has gone in and out.

        The tag argument is incorrect, you limit the opposition’s most damaging mid, the second or third receiver not the initial distributor usually.
        i.e. M Crouch, Rory Laird & Jy Simpkin are all more likely to cop attention.

          Agree to disagree then. I’m sticking by my thinking of both Sloane and Cunnington being tag targets. FWIW I currently have Serong and Cunnington in my side.. but Sloane and Hately have also featured in previous versions this pre-season.

            The issue I see with him is just the plethora of options Adelaide will roll through the midfield which Hately is part of. Milera, Schoenberg, Sholl then the draftees in Berry and Pedlar (both of whom the club said afterwards are AFL ready and are locked in competition with guys like Hatley and Milera for mid clock). Think both will be good picks but maybe temper expectations a little.

      i’m tired of gambling with new club new role types, i have been burnt yearly for 6 years.

      Sloane if fit should be good for an average of over 100, has done it before and on more than one occasion.

      Cunnington if fit should be good for 90-95; again he has done it before on a few occasions.

      the if fit is the big question, i’m ok on sloane but have doubts on cunningtons durability.

      of the 4 other choices, IMO hately is the one i’d be most nervous about, the other three have been more consistent with fantasy scoring for mine.

      i’m a pretty crap player but.

    Are owners still confident in the Isaac Cumming selection?

    Talk is that Ash will likely be on the kick out duties.

      Won’t lie, have thought about trying to find the cash to get Cumming to Ash. If Cumming plays regularly (which he is expected to) the 60-70k difference still makes him a good pick, he may even get the odd kick in as well. Think he’ll be fine, just needs to be playing.

            70 might be a bit optimistic especially if he isn’t taking kick-ins. Let’s hope the AAMI series gives us some insight.. as long as he doesn’t do what he does last year..

            Milera sits firmly D3 for me. Maybe won’t get to over 600k but should get close. Harmes just has too many strings to his bow to be certain of where he’ll play consistently (for me personally). Crows have been big on Milera going through the mids and he is a guy they want to get the ball. Both good options but Milera for me.

                He’s good outside and inside and perhaps most importantly he’s a good tagger which is a role he may be asked to play throughout the year at various stages. You’re right he’ll be good, so will Milera at the moment only have room for one structure wise and it’s Milera for me. Both should be decent.

          Woah chill mate. Never said he wasn’t an option just said that the uncertainty over his role makes me want to side with Milera given he can score in multiple positions whereas Harmes needs the inside mid role. Milera also looked good in the crows scratch match (though Harmes hasn’t played one yet). If you like him as a pick then go for it, should definitely improve on last year, I personally just don’t think he’ll get a consistent mid role. Chill.

    What are people’s thoughts on Zac Williams at the moment? Obviously the jack Martin interview has thrown up some doubt about how much mid clock he gets with the whole 50/50 split based off how the game is going. Still in my side (firmly as well) given even a mid role with some forward time should still result in a decent average boost and given how strong Carlton have been about him playing mid still feels fine.

    Now that I’ve typed this I’m leaning heavily towards 2 – the only issue with it is that it leaves my fwd line looking like:
    Dunkley, Philips, Stephenson, Campbell, Cockatoo (or other rookie), Macrae (Rowe, Jones) which could be a bit light on

                    from the scratchie today seems like hes in that group (without treloar in the equation) and even so i just think a midfielder who is priced in the mid 90s with one of the biggest ceilings in the comp is too good to miss, i also believe bevo would be an absolute moron not to play arguably his most damaging midfielder in the guts for the majority of games.

                      That’s the issue though, Bevo has proved the last 2-3 years that he’s more than happy to play with his midfield mix. His ceiling and overall consistency (when playing consistent inside mid) are hard to watch without owning him but with the depth they have through the middle it’s too hard to tell.

      nice team.

      downie is fine on the field, looking at your team he, both young’s, phillips and cockatoo are rooks that are a good chance of playing regular games.

      midfield is a gamble with sloane and cunnington and durability concerns but if good you bat deep.

      nank will do enough and a POD

      fwd same as mid, bit of a gamble but if all goes well you bat deep again. one of the 170k fwds can convert easilly to the general if he comes back r2-r3

      if all your players are playing round one and do as well as you hope you will be in the top 100 for sure as not many line ups look like this
