For the last week I’ve been rocking
D:Dawson, Sicily, McGrath, Yeo, Constable, Ginbey
M:Laird, Touk, Macrae, Gulden, Horne-Francis, Ashcroft, Mackenzie, Phillips
F:Dunkley, Taranto, Rozee, Phillipou, Sheezel, Pedler
Int: made up of the main 200k guys, but can change pending selection. 6k left.
Buuuut this alternative lineup is tempting. A borderline premos and rooks system.
D:Doc, Young, Daicos, Ginbey, Wilmott, Cincotta
M:Laird, A.Brayshaw, Oliver, Touk, Macrae, Ashcroft, Mackenzie, Phillips
F:Dunkley, Rozee, Gulden, Phillipou, Pedlar, Greene
Int: Same as above. 13k remaining.
The obvious gaps are in both teams, first team is more balanced. But the allure of those starting 5 Uber premos in the second team is hard to ignore.
Happy for feedback.
Genuine newbie question.
If you have any of the following: Dunks, Cogs, Taranto, Rozee, Gulden (or all of them).
Come the DPP changes…what are the chances that any, a few or all of them lose their FWD status and become MID only? I can imagine that’d ruin a few people’s teams.
Players can’t lose DPP status, only gain it.
So losing a position is purely only an end of season/new season thing?
Yes. In the lead up to rounds 6, 12 and 18, players can gain DPP status. If they already have DPP status, they cannot lose it.
any word on Luke Jackson?? currently got ROB as R2, but could be enticed by Darcy if he is standalone (extra 66k would be very handy..)
Yeah, I’m with you Cal on E Gulden. He will not score anywhere near what he did in last practice game with C Mills back in the team. I think D Cameron is a better option in your team. But by saying that I’ll have Gulden line up for my team Rnd1
Awesome pod as usual guys, however I can’t split hairs between the two gws boys jelly and cogs, any thoughts?
Please join my league: 6TC37M7C
I thought I just heard on the radio that Yeo just pulled a hammy. But I could/may be wrong. Anyone here the same?
Green or Coniglio
