Jock Reynolds Fantasy Footy Podcast – post NAB Cup Week 3

Published by Jock on

AFL supercoach 2013 NAB 3

Round 2 of the NAB Cup has come and gone – some things have become clearer to us as elite fantasy footballers, but as always more questions have been thrown our way.

Sit back, relax and soak in the Supercoach and AFL Fantasy wisdom as Higgo, Crouching and I walk you through another weekend of fantasy football pre season fodder.

Some significant discussions this evening;

  • Travis Varcoe.. too risky and/or awkward at his price?
  • Ruck structure
  • Kan-ye Mitchel-son. And why you need to lock him into your midfield quick smart
  • Jed Lamb from Sydney bobs up as a rookie forward option
  • The Basted Chicken and stacks more…

How did you see NAB Cup round 2 from a fantasy perspective folks?



jimbotraralgon · 03/03/2013 at 23:14

love the new 'lock or not' segment fellas.

another top job.


    PluggersGuts · 03/03/2013 at 23:49

    I think you're right there jimbo. Lock or not kicked a goal for mine. Put the boys under a bit of pressure didn't it 🙂

      Philby · 04/03/2013 at 01:53

      Bloody lock lock or not, hey Crouching.

Smittzzy · 03/03/2013 at 23:18

I know he didnt play this weekend but thoughts on Allen Christenson as a dark horse?

    Stefan · 04/03/2013 at 13:38

    I have computed an analysis of all 2012 players. A few facts on Allen Christenson for you:

    1. Ranked 42nd as a forward in 2012 SC
    2. Has a 2 year SC average of 72.9
    3. A standard deviation of 10.0 for 2011 and 2012 average
    4. Has an upward trend of 14.13 average from 2011 to 2012

    I think he is a good option based on stats.

    If he continues the way he is going based on average he could average 87.03 for 2013.

      G unit · 04/03/2013 at 22:40

      He is a gun, should of gotten a mention in mid-price list Jock!

        kodesz · 05/03/2013 at 21:17

        unique pick that could give high rewards!

          dools · 06/03/2013 at 00:11

          Hahhaahhahha Cristenson is a smokey but at 400K well you have a go if you have 'em !!
          IIMO definate LOCK plays all over the park , in top 22 has some injury moments but he is a Nugget, hopefully gold $Kaaakinng

Benno · 03/03/2013 at 23:30

Great podcast as always boys, making me reconsider my team yet again! Just curious, when you say you are possibly going 6-4 in the mids, are you saying 6 elite premiums around $600K+? or sticking a few of the elites along with a couple of potential breakout players inbetween $500-600K? Cheers boys

PluggersGuts · 03/03/2013 at 23:36

Great job again gentleman. I'm with you Jock on Sippa. Absolute gun and my number 1 prediction for a break out forward this year. Get on board early I say.

    SCaddict · 04/03/2013 at 02:46

    Still want to see more from Siposs before I make way for him in my crowded foward line of mid pricers. Karnezis is tempting me more at this stage though certainly far from a lock.

      Kev · 04/03/2013 at 10:13

      Siposs hurt his ribs yesterday? Can't find any news about it. Anyone know anything?

        Shimma · 04/03/2013 at 17:05

        dont think it was anything big, was at the match and didnt even notice an injury intil I came home

        PluggersGuts · 04/03/2013 at 23:20

        G'day Kev. He copped a bit of a knock. I don't think it was anything serious. I'll let you know if I hear anything further.

      PluggersGuts · 04/03/2013 at 18:45

      Yeah I hear ya there mate. Karnezis has definately popped his head up. I've had an eye on Siposs for a few seasons now down at the Zebras and make no mistake he's a gun. Over 90% efficiency yesterday. I'm with the humble genius on this one, but certainly other options to consider.

        SCaddict · 05/03/2013 at 01:17

        Indeed Siposs is definitely one I'm still considering and if he has a big game this weekend he may very well push his way back into my team.

        Although that said if Karnezis has another blinder this time against the Pies he will be bloody lock he he!

TheBIGShot · 03/03/2013 at 23:46

love: Lock or NOT!!! Dustin Martin NOT. (terrible history of consistent application)
Wobbly on: Teen Wolf. Luey.
Great work Jock et al.

    SCaddict · 04/03/2013 at 02:42

    Never had Dusty in my team before but geez I reckon this could be the year. Lock for me.

    PluggersGuts · 04/03/2013 at 22:04

    Reports from Hardwick earlier in the pre season were that Dusty had been working hard on his tank to curb those late game fade outs and he's expecting that Dusty will be a "very, very good player" for the tigers this year. Lol. He looked bloody good over the weekend tho didn't he. 61 SC points in the first half…

Sean · 04/03/2013 at 01:49

Where can i find supercoach scores for the nab cup????

    Kev · 04/03/2013 at 10:15

    FantasyFreako tweets them, not sure of any websites that post them

    brian · 04/03/2013 at 13:59 all scores on the top. click on your team, scroll down and click match data/details

SCaddict · 04/03/2013 at 03:00

Is Kane Lucas on anyone's radar? Mick seems to be a believer in him and he racked up a decent amount of the pill on the weekend.

I'm weighing him up against Whitfield and Toumpas at similar dollars. Wines and K.Stevens are quickly approaching lock status in my team so can only squeeze in one more in my rookie midfield madness strategy as K.Mitchell. O'Meara and Viney are already dead set certainties (barring injuries).

    kodesz · 05/03/2013 at 21:22

    He's been on mine for a while mate! Not settled as of yet but could be a great POD if he has a breakout year.

      SCaddict · 06/03/2013 at 00:14

      He's not in my team at the moment as there are probably few cheaper/better options in the midfield but I'm following his form and where Mick plays him closely.

DDJ · 04/03/2013 at 03:15

Jock, How about Andrejs Everitt?
Thought his game was quite good for someone priced $275,500. What do you reckon?

    Kev · 04/03/2013 at 10:18

    Not in Sydney's best 22. Never played more than 12 games in a season (even at the dogs). Was subbed 5 times last year. Avoid

leigh · 04/03/2013 at 07:12

I hope lock or not has not replaced slipper. When slipper say me YOU SHUTUP AND LISTEN

Super_rabbit · 04/03/2013 at 08:10

Where are you guys getting supercoach points from? I can’t gind them anywhere!!

Tomy gun · 04/03/2013 at 08:23

What does everyone think of Matty spahnger from the hawks cheap as chips and could easily slot into the backline and take a good foward thoughts everyone ???

    JJFyzz · 04/03/2013 at 08:56

    I don’t actually want any true backmen in my backline. I don’t think they score high enough. Trying to find floaters, midfieders, rather than the forward stopper.

      Te Ninja · 05/03/2013 at 19:45

      Agree with JJ. I reckon start there if you’re looking for points. Then your pure backliners to find a POD. Not convinced Spangher will be one this year SC points wise.

Aaron · 04/03/2013 at 09:12

Geez Higgo sounds like Malcom Blight

    The Old Dylan · 04/03/2013 at 10:09

    Secret identity revealed???

JJFyzz · 04/03/2013 at 10:17

Loving the Lock or Not section boys. Great following you on Twitter too!!!

Kev · 04/03/2013 at 10:19

Kersten kicked 3 goals from 10 possies on saturday. Is there a spot for him in geelong's best 22?

    Smittzzy · 04/03/2013 at 12:14

    Geelong have enough in forward and midfield and rookies like Horlin Smith are ahead of him, Daniel Menzal gets fit and that's another spot gone for him. Doubtful he will play until late in the season unless extensive injuries.

      kodesz · 05/03/2013 at 21:20

      not for me mate, i'm a geelong fan myself and he's got a few seasons before he might crack the side.

team changa · 04/03/2013 at 11:24

hey guys can you please tell me where your finding supercoach scores for nab cup? i dont want dream team scores i want supercoach scores please!!! THANK YOU

@MRB37 · 04/03/2013 at 11:47

Koby Stevens seems a much better option than picking Wines or Toumpas. You know the kid has talent, and he's had 4 seasons under his belt, so that might remove the rookie wall that normally hits the young kids.

Hard to judge Tex and Jerka on the 1 game there. The forward entry was terrible and they went back to the bomb it into the 50 style again, which never really works. Plus it's not the first time Adelaide has been toweled up by Geelong either (Tex scored 39 against them at Simonds last year). Still keeping Tex, but Jerka is out for now.

    SCaddict · 04/03/2013 at 14:14

    Yes Stevens is very close to reaching lock status in my team and would slightly prefer him over Wines. But luckily I have room in my midfield for two at that price so both will very likely be in my team come Rd1.

      Stuart · 04/03/2013 at 17:08

      Stevens over Wines?? Based on what?? Certainly not their respective performances over the weekend!!

        jimbotraralgon · 04/03/2013 at 18:05

        I will be looking at a high end rookie as well…what about toumpas?


        SCaddict · 04/03/2013 at 18:34

        Just reckon Koby has a bigger tank being 3 years older with more pre-seasons under his belt.

        Don't get me wrong I reckon they'll both have productive seasons and hence why I have both of them in my squad. I don't think you can go wrong picking either. Only time will tell which one will be better.

          PluggersGuts · 04/03/2013 at 18:55

          Koby was very impressive in his days in the WAFL folks. Absolute ball magnet, regularly racking up 35-40 possessions. Starved of opportunities at West Coast but will get the game time with the doggies. Lock! I've got Wines in my side at this stage.

Emre · 04/03/2013 at 11:48

Hey Jock, what your thoughts on Big Orren Stephenson. He's priced at $320,400 and has a break even of -17. If he gets games im thinking of using him to generate a bit of cash.

    Kev · 04/03/2013 at 12:02

    Nah, still on the rookie list. Likely only to be elevated if big Maric goes down with a LTI. Better ruck options out there for making cash

    SCaddict · 04/03/2013 at 14:25

    Hey Emre where are you getting the BE of -17 from? It's actually 59 so are you sure you're not looking at last year figures or something??

        SCaddict · 05/03/2013 at 16:31

        Yeah there is something messed up with Footywires BE at the moment. Not sure if it is some carryover effect from last year. If you click on the Supercoach scores link on that page you'll see how strange the figure look.

        The whole idea of BE at the very start of the season is that it's based solely on price. So a $320,400 player has BE of 59, a player valued at $324,500 has a BE of 60 etc.

        Once the season starts is when the BEs begin to change.

    jimbotraralgon · 04/03/2013 at 18:04

    the big O is a big danger sign for supercoach. stay way fella.


King · 04/03/2013 at 12:42

Great pod cast guys

Looking for serious Supercoaches…
Monday Experts League… 466801
All welcome… Cheers KM..

Les · 04/03/2013 at 13:42

josh thomas from collingwood dominated and even scott pendlebury talked him up on facebook could be a player to trade in mid season for som $$$

David Ruddick · 04/03/2013 at 13:57

Great podcast again lads!!! Love listening to it on my Iphone while I aimlessly stroll the streets of Abbotsford ( near CUB ) at lunchtime.

Will · 04/03/2013 at 14:52

Hey jock,
What do you think of my team, suggestions or improvements needed
DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Waters, Birchall, Goodes, Vlaustin, BENCH: Docherty, Terlich
MID: Ablett, Pendles, Watson, Danger, Fyfe, Wines, Crouch, O'mera BENCH: k.mitchell, Viney
Ruck: Jacobs, luenburger Bench: Rowe, Currie
FWDS: Buddy, Cox, Stevie j, Rockliff, mayes, kerridge BENCH: Lee, kennedy

    JohnnoB · 04/03/2013 at 15:44

    Stevie j out rd,1 bro

      Shimma · 04/03/2013 at 17:19

      he'll be fine if Will is going for a league win, comp doesnt start till Round 3/4 I believe

    SCaddict · 05/03/2013 at 01:31

    Hi Will

    Team looks great but you may have to sacrifice one of your premium mids (Fyfe perhaps?) to bolster the bottom end of your forward line or you will run a real risk of a krispy kreme or two each week. At the very least I would get Macaffer in there.

    Sadly there is a real dearth of rookie forward walk-up starters this season as opposed to the midfield were there is an embarrassment of riches rookie-wise.

Brick · 04/03/2013 at 15:46

I've got a sickening feeling that Sam Rowe will be a vest boy under Mick.

Not sure why.

    @MRB37 · 04/03/2013 at 15:53

    That's not really a huge concern unless you're starting him, which you shouldn't be doing unless it's due to injury. It'll limit his scores and thus his cash generation somewhat, but usually you'll take any cheap ruck option that gets games since they're few and far between.

      jimbotraralgon · 04/03/2013 at 18:02

      I think Rowe will be an downgrade target midyear.

      I suspect that the 3 senior rucks will be given first dibs on ruck and key forward position. If they dont grab hold then Rowe will get his chance.

      No evidence to support this, just a feeling.


    SCaddict · 04/03/2013 at 18:41

    Yeah I agree there are plenty Blues bigs ahead of him. But I'll probably still pick him on my bench for his handy DPP status as I have Cox in my forward line which I can swap in for R1/R2 during the byes or when short term injuries/resting arise.

      Mac · 05/03/2013 at 15:52

      Hi SCaddict, not sure if you know but the bye rules have been changed this year. – Check them out because swing sets are no longer needed during bye rounds.

        SCaddict · 05/03/2013 at 16:34

        Ah yes that's right with the top 18 scorers during byes now so my bad. They are still useful for injuries, resting, suspensions and trades though.

Brick · 04/03/2013 at 16:23

I'm still going to with as at this stage,we don't know, but I'm also still leaning towards a bloke by the name of Gorringe and no matter how many times I mention his name – I can't rally any support.


    jimbotraralgon · 04/03/2013 at 18:00

    Hey Brick.

    Why are you on Gorringe? what is your thoughts. Might get on board if you can put a case forward.


      Brick · 04/03/2013 at 20:30

      Well – He's a number 10 draft pick. Injury plagued early he is pumped up for a "big" year. My thoughts he might play 12 odd games and average about 50,might even crack 20 odd games.
      Ruck cash cow possibilties.
      There was also an article about him spending some more time up forward and down back.

      I'm also starting to get a boner for young Matera.

        jimbotraralgon · 04/03/2013 at 21:07

        thanks Brick….good point but can't help thinking he is still a couple years off being supercoach relevant.


          Brick · 05/03/2013 at 20:36

          ME too, maybe I'm Jumping the gun, but I just think he might be relevant this year.

Shimma · 04/03/2013 at 17:21

Anyone know anything about Jake Stringer's injury? Is he gonna be good come Round 1? Loved the stringer joke Crouching

Yappa's Allstars · 04/03/2013 at 17:52

Not sure about K. Stevens, to expensive and I done don't believe he will score consistently. 🙂

    jimbotraralgon · 04/03/2013 at 17:59

    I agree Yappa, I do want one of the high end mid rookies but I am starting to look at Toumpas instead, maybe wines. Lonergan even.

    Started with koby but didnt see enough to convince me.


    Kev · 04/03/2013 at 18:44

    31% d.e on the weekend has me worried!

      Kev · 04/03/2013 at 18:45

      EDIT: That's k.mitchell, not k.stevens – my bad guys

    SCaddict · 04/03/2013 at 18:50

    Yeah there are plenty other midfield options at that price point such as Toumpas, Wines, Whitfield, Hill, Vlastuin etc.

    But I liked what I saw from Koby on Friday night and more importantly I think so did McCartney so he's in my squad for now.

James · 04/03/2013 at 17:55

Hi Jock,

What happened with Todd Goldstein? Wasn't he your number 1 ruck?
Also who are some premium forwards to consider? I already have Rocklief and Roughead.

Would love your thoughts

    jockreynolds · 04/03/2013 at 21:41

    Gday James – he was mate – at this stage I have Zac Smith and Leuengerger (stuffed this up in the podcast.. said Giles meant Smith! bugger). Like Smith as a 3rd year player, 1st ruck at a very low price, break out potential… Goldstein… Curry has come in and done a bit more than anticipated, dont think Goldy will settle into stride anymore.
    Forwards are hard this season… tick on Rockliff and Rough… but I'll be going pretty skinny up there this season initially

      James · 04/03/2013 at 21:53

      Thanks Jock, appreciate the help. Nice podcast btw. Good luck for the season mate.

jimbotraralgon · 04/03/2013 at 18:06

hey guys….whats happened with kerridge? Is he becoming irrelevant like Tommy Lee?


    @MRB37 · 04/03/2013 at 20:09

    Not irrelevant, but I can't see him being a definite pick each and every week. Seems to be a bit of a jack of all trades, master of none type player, which can make it tough to find a consistent position for him to play. Same reason Tom Lynch hasn't gotten games with the Crows, hard to find a position to play him at AFL level, bit too small to be a key position player, but not fast enough to play elsewhere on the ground.

    jockreynolds · 04/03/2013 at 21:42

    thought he actially showed promise for the first time in a long time this weekend jimbo… I'll be watching him v closely this weekend

AlBundy · 04/03/2013 at 18:59

Any bets on Betts after the weekend? Getting more time on ball an still scoring well up forward… On ball time could add to consistency?

Dinolyn · 04/03/2013 at 19:03

Hey guys, whats the deal with beau waters, with the slight injury cloud and a limited pre season is he worth over other possibilities such as heath shaw and duffield?

    SCaddict · 05/03/2013 at 01:42

    Waters is one of the best players in the entire comp to watch and capable of registering some big scores but reckon he's a tad over priced plus there is always that injury/suspension risk if history is any guide.

    Could be a handy POD though as I don't reckon too many will be picking him.

Smittzzy · 04/03/2013 at 19:18

Dont reckon he gets enough ball to secure a spot. thats just my opinion

Smittzzy · 04/03/2013 at 19:19

Also Dan Hannebery needs some serious discussion huge ball winner this weekend and looking for a break out??

    BMO · 05/03/2013 at 09:46

    With Sydney's easy start to the year i'm giving Dan a gig in my squad (m6) this season. If i dont like what I see after 2,3,4 games i dont mind burning a trade down to a rookie that looks the goods, that i may have initially missed.

Tim · 04/03/2013 at 20:23

Hey guys who would you guys oil out of grimes and watts??

    Tim · 04/03/2013 at 20:30


      kodesz · 04/03/2013 at 21:36

      neither, i'd go heppell, atley, jacobs ahead of them both

        Smittzzy · 04/03/2013 at 22:54

        Heppell Is going to rip the AFL a new one

kodesz · 04/03/2013 at 20:26

Ben Jacobs or Shaun Atley?

Also Shuey or Harley Bennell?

Just wondering who most of you have as your R1 this year?
opinions would be great! cheers

    Smittzzy · 04/03/2013 at 22:07

    I dont see the hype over Atley at the moment mate hes out put has been minimal but will continue to watch him.

    I'd go Bennell as Shuey is going to be competing with some serious midfield aka, Kerr, Masten, Wellingham, Lecras, Selwood, Priddis. Also possibly there most influential midfield coping a tag every week?

    Whereas Bennell Won't be tagged cause Ablett will cop it. hows some great silk this NAB cup. continue to watch him

    Shimma · 05/03/2013 at 16:15

    dont really know enough about Jacobs/Atley to answer the first one, but I reckon Bennell out of those two. Said to have bulked up a bit and looks a gun.

    Also, Im going Sam Jacobs so far at R1

dgusto81 · 04/03/2013 at 22:21

Bloody great podcast I must say.

Don't know where to go on D Martin. Burnt me last year, but need to put aside player bias. Now also considering Zorko instead of Walker.

    Smittzzy · 04/03/2013 at 22:55

    Zorko over Walker everyday of the week!!

    SCaddict · 05/03/2013 at 00:20

    Yes Zorko for me too. As a key forward I expect Walker's performances and therefore price to fluctuate significantly so you should hopefully be able to pick up Tex a little cheaper during the season if you are still keen on him.

    I'm expecting Zorko to hold his value better and perhaps even push towards elite status.

    I reckon stick with Dusty although I realise it can be hard to when that player has disappointed you in the past. I've never been much of a fan of his before and wondered about all the hype but this year he looks in really good nick and his price is quite attractive.

    @Dashism · 05/03/2013 at 04:39

    Zorko for sure. Putting aside his short 16 point debut, he averages in the top 5 forwards on SC and top 3 on DT.

AJC · 04/03/2013 at 22:54

Yarran vs d pearce?

    SCaddict · 05/03/2013 at 00:11

    Any reason you're limiting yourself to those two as there is quite a price differential between them? In between you have players like Heppell, Newman, Harbrow, Broughton who are probably more popular selections.

    But if forced to choose I'd pick Yarran as I think Pearce is fraught with more risk at the higher price. At over $450K you want to be sure you are getting premium value and not convinced Pearce represents that at this point imho.

      kodesz · 05/03/2013 at 21:16

      neither, completely agree with SCaddict. Reckon heppell will tear it up this year i'd definitely be going for someone else. If your looking for someone more around the yarran price tag, maybe consider shaun atley ($380,000)

Dave · 05/03/2013 at 00:25

First time putting together a serious team. Any comments appreciated

DEF- Goddard, Gibbs, Shaw, Harbrow, Vlastuin, Goodes (Stevenson, Terlich)

MID – Swan, Ablett, J. Selwood, Dangerfield, Zorko, Wines, K. Mitchell, O'Meara (Viney, Crouch)

RUCK – Smith, Leuenberger (Gorringe, Currie)

FWD – Franklin, Cox, Rockcliff, Martin, Karnezis, Byrnes (Macaffer, Rowe)

About 40K left in bank.

Not sure about Gorringe and Harbrow. Forward line is also stuffing me up- Should I swap Martin for Varcoe and use cash to improve Def/Mid? Or downgrade Byrnes for same result?

    Te Ninja · 05/03/2013 at 19:56

    The only thing in that post which scares me really, is the 40 in the bank. Anyone else? Or am I just being soft?

@Dashism · 05/03/2013 at 04:54

Decent effort. Put simply:

OUT Harbrow, Swan, Wines
IN Rookie Def and two Elite Mids.
OUT Karnezis and Martin
IN Rookie FWD and a better Elite FWD than Martin.

I haven't really calculated the cash but you may even be able to work out an upgrade for Smith in the Ruck too. Also swap out Gorringe for Rowe.

    Shimma · 05/03/2013 at 16:18

    why out Swan?

      @Dashism · 06/03/2013 at 02:34

      I think there's better value in having two Elite Mids rather than Swan and Harbrow.

    Out Swan?Please explain?

      @Dashism · 06/03/2013 at 02:37

      Not saying Swan shouldn't be in your team. I'm just providing some options for better value for that bloke's side.

    Dave · 06/03/2013 at 09:31

    For DT swan is a definite for me. SC he might go if money is tight and a better option presents itself.

    I have the extra mid rookie mainly because I don’t trust any of the forward rookies at this stage. Waiting for the Rd 1 teams before I decide whether to take the extra forward rookie or not

Shimma · 05/03/2013 at 16:30

Considering trading out Tex Walker, which player (must be cheaper or at same price) should I look at? Thinking Stevie J, Round1 ban doesnt really matter to me

    Popey · 05/03/2013 at 19:52

    If round 1 ban doesn't matter to you, then lock Stevie in! Should average 105 this year with added midfield time, I can see him being a top 3 forward this year.

    SCaddict · 06/03/2013 at 02:46

    Yes Stevie J would be a solid selection as you already have both Zorko and Rocky.

    However my own personal preference would be to reassign Zorko to your forward line in place of Tex and make another selection of a true mid in your midfield. You have countless options on who that could be.

Popey · 05/03/2013 at 19:10

Hey Jock, great podcast this week. Some great thoughts and locked/unlocked a few players in my team.

Have a question for ya mate, would you be willing to consider both of Rocky and Zork in the forwards? Bloody want them both, but having two lions premiums is in my forward line is risky. Currently rolling with:

Buddy, Cox, Rockliff, Martin, Varcoe, Macaffer, (Lamb, Rowe)

Still unsure on rookies… As you can probably tell. Thoughts?

    Te Ninja · 05/03/2013 at 20:01

    I’d like to know people’s opinions on Zorko and Rocky too. I like both. Not sure if it’s a smart idea to have both. Even if one is in the Mid.

      dools · 06/03/2013 at 00:05

      Mate it does not matter how many R on the same team as long as they preform, mate… I had 6 freo boys last year exceptining Sandilands Win/Win..Can you feel the love? dddo ITTTTTTTTTTTTT

    SCaddict · 05/03/2013 at 20:20

    Both are locks in my team. Reckon Brisbane are going to have a good year with the addition of Moloney, Leuey returning from injury and Browny hopefully getting back to his best. Karnezis and Cornelius also look set for good seasons.

    jockreynolds · 05/03/2013 at 22:05

    Thank you Popey – you're a good egg mate.
    To answer your question on Zork and The Rock.. if you feel they'll both provide solid output lock em in mate.. don't worry about the fact that they play for the same mob old mate;)

    Popey · 06/03/2013 at 07:05

    Thanks Jock, and guys. Yep, I'll lock em both in RIGHT NOW.

Bundy bears · 06/03/2013 at 12:52

thoughts on kane lucas? at 217k he has to be worth considering?

    kodesz · 06/03/2013 at 15:58

    worth considering could be a good pick. I'll be watching him very closely but isnt in my side atm.

    SCaddict · 06/03/2013 at 18:40

    Absolutely worth considering. Mick really seems to be backing him. Not in my team coz I reckon Koby Stevens and Ollie Wines represent better value but Lucas is on my radar for sure.

kodesz · 06/03/2013 at 15:54

Just wondering why you guys are planning on a 6-4 mid structure? Surely with the large amount of genuine midfield rookies you would be more inclined to sure up your forward and back lines because of the rare amount of rookies in those areas?
Just curious to know and i plan to go in with 5 midfield rookies.

    Mac · 06/03/2013 at 16:25

    Personally i'm going for a 6-4 mid structure, purely because I think that there's a lot of value to be found in the midfield this year.

    SCaddict · 06/03/2013 at 18:41

    I'm currently favouring 4 elites and 6 rooks.

      kodesz · 06/03/2013 at 18:57

      i was thinking that two, plenty of good rookie options.

antlee · 06/03/2013 at 18:53

Great show. Thoughts on tartan for a back spot. Down 20 odd on previous average.

Also centrebet has a draft game, winner of each league gets $250 cash. I have a live draft tomorrow at 3pm. Code 856167. 3 spots left

kodesz · 06/03/2013 at 19:04

Is anyone considering Jonathan Simpkin ($198,00) as a higher priced rookie, instead of toumpas, wines, or stevens. Has good AFL experience with the cats and just didnt fit their structure. Looks to be comfortable at the hawks and has showed signs in the nab cup. I believe he's worth a good look.

Dee · 06/03/2013 at 22:40

H. Taylor or Duffield in the back line? I have one spot left and can't decide between the two….. Opinions would be appreciated, thank you!

    kodesz · 07/03/2013 at 16:15


Togg · 07/03/2013 at 11:32

thoughts on suban and karnezis? karnezis seems a fantastic option what with him having 26 disposals!

    kodesz · 07/03/2013 at 16:14

    karnezis is a very good option. Havent seen enough from suban yet but will watch him closely

BPP · 08/03/2013 at 20:17

Hey guys, a question here, is it necessary to have DPP links everywhere? Because I have colquhoun in my MID bench, because i don't have any other MID/DEF. Also, I have Mitch Robinson my in mids to cater for MD/FWD. Other than these two, i have pure mids. I feel this is compromising my money making ability, but is DPP versatility more important in my case?

    Bryton · 08/03/2013 at 20:19

    EDIT: Robinson is also compromising me from getting a pure mid in the 500-550k range too

      dools · 08/03/2013 at 20:38

      NO No no DPP is a way of thinking that some one is better then their position means..Like O'Halpin he has Fwd/ Ruc status does this mean that he will Play??? DPP has gone this year to few on the ground where you knew they would be listed in you Def line but where really Mids ie Carrazo, Pick the team you feel represents value for coin..and don't panic about PODs go strong on the crest of the wave that nearly everyone has but be prepared to Trade Not Gambling on unique picks..Loose the DPP Status thing never mind about linking Positions They either play well / go down with injury/ get subbed/ Suspended etc etc Trade is the way but a solid base/platform from which to trade from is VITAL

    Shimma · 09/03/2013 at 09:57

    Having Colquhon in your mid bench means your missing out on one of the many gun rookies in the midfield this season. As Jock would say, Ignore DPP, go for the best option available

Redman · 08/03/2013 at 21:42

Hey Jock, looked listened and learned last year, so massive thanks for that. My 2nd yr and won one from 4 comps. I know this probably annoys the @&$# out of you, but what r ur thoughts on this team??
Goddard, Gibbs, Dempsey, goodes, docherty, curran (Stevenson & terlich)

Ablett, pendles, danger, Boyd, rockliff, vlastuin, k. Mitchell, o'meara (b. crouch & colquhoun)

Ryder, leuenberger (Rowe & currie)

Franklin, cox, Zorko, broughton, monfries, varcoe (kerridge & t.lee)

Heavy on rookies, but watching them in nab and seeing their return, I reckon they could really work for me .

Your thoughts.?????

Westy · 08/03/2013 at 22:42

OK, new team – been fiddling and funning around with it
DEF Goddard, Gibbs, Heppell, Newman, Vlastuin, Goodes (Colquhoun, Terlich)
MID Ablett, Pendlebury, Dangerfield, Jack, Bennell, K Stevens, K Mitchell, Crouch (O'Meara, Viney)
