Jock Reynolds Fantasy Footy Podcast – 2 weeks till kick off!

Published by Jock on

AFL supercoach 2013 NAB

2 weeks to go folks can you bloody believe it!

Get stuck right into this week’s podcast as we have an absolute feast of Supercoach and AFL Fantasy gold just waiting to be discovered. It has been a very interesting week of NAB Cup action and the tide has turned on many fronts.

I know I bang on a bit kids but I must take this opportunity to remind you to stay calm. The next fortnight is a stressful time for all fantasy footballers. It is a time for cool heads and steely nerves. It’s not the players you pick in these 2 weeks that will win you the prize. It’s the players you’re wise enough not to pick.

Discussed this week;

  • Dyson Heppell
  • Patrick Ryder
  • Tex Walker
  • Josh Jenkins
  • Patrick Karnezis
  • Travis Varcoe
  • Dean Terlich
  • Daniel Currie
  • Koby Stevens
  • Leuenhamneggenburger
  • And a hell of a lot more..

Enjoy the show!

Feedback is very welcome. Feeling as though my team is looking a bit shaky cheers Jeremy!

Rick

Pretty close to mine Jeremy, so I like it! Currie is the key

Clayton

Like it… like it very much! Rucks are risky, but if Currie gets the nod ahead of Goldstein, thats a bloody solid team. How much cash have you got? If possible, id upgrade Hartlett to Bennel

Smittzzy

Yeah man Hartlett is going to be your burn man if any. Also make sure those forward rookies can get games. Lamb will probably not break into Sydneys best 22

SCaddict

Hartlett is looking in ripping form and very hard to ignore particularly in the backline rather than the midfield. But his injury prone history can't be dismissed so I've now gone with Duffield instead who's proved to be very durable in contrast.

Still has me tossing and turning at night though as I reckon Harlett could have a blinder this season if those hammies hold up!

jeremy

thanks for that guys swapped hartlett to the defence for heppel and traded hartlett for birchall whos popped into my mind with injuries to piggy and others

BIGBOY

Your team look excellent but if there was one problem it would be the rucks as I believe Currie's job security good but not great, however the rest is magnificent.

Pete

bwahaha, pod cast, sneaky little peak comment from Crouching, gold!

Tim

Hey jock, higgo & crouching when will you guys be putting up your teams??:)

We would all love to see them

klaay

good stuff fellas!!

Anyone got a league i can join?? consider myself a pretty good coach ahha

Kodesz

Great podcat again guys. Just a question for higgo, i cant see your complete guns and rookies strategy paying off. Who will you go for in the forward line if your just saying that midpricers like varcoe and karnezis are too risky? Surely with the lack of rookies that are guaranteed games in the fwd line, you’d have to take at least one mid pricer? Cant say i’ll be taking any of your advice on the guns and rookies strategy. Seems stupid to me.

SCaddict

Perhaps you could've worded it a little nicer Kodesz but yes I'd like to see Higgo's forward line too with only GnRs.

I've gone guns and mid pricers across that line instead otherwise reckon you will run the risk of either picking up regular donuts or burning trades instead.

Kodesz

Agreed, probably sounds a bit nasty but i’m just interested to see who he’s going with.

Eagle

5 guns forward
5 rookies midfield
Simple really in 2013

SCaddict

We're talking about the forward line Eagle not the midfield where obviously a GnR strategy is easily achievable.

Pies

That’s what eagle is saying SCaddict, u can put 5 premiums in your forward line and then have more rookies in other lines to keep a GnR strategy going even though forward rookies and slim this year

SCaddict

Yes somehow he edited his post whilst I was replying. It initially read just 5 guns 5 rookies so makes more sense now.

Well I guess it's doable then. But that's spending a heck of a lot of cash in just one line though and limiting yourself for trading in premium forwards who emerge during the season unless you want to burn a few extra sideways trades.

But the main reason I'm against it is I think you will likely be missing cash generating opportunities if you pass up on a good choice of value mid pricers up forward this year.

Eagle

lol cash generation will be huge in the midfield u dil!
Thats the whole point. MORE CASH GENERATION!
From midfield rookies.

Eagle

Yeah I mystically edited my post LOL

OR
THe link between your eyes and brain works intermittently!

Good luck! it looks like you will need it.

Eagle

OOps a bit harsh
Now where did that mystical edit button go…………………?????

dools

Woh Lads, Suppossed to be a happy Place
Like comin to Grandmas house after school, you said yes please No thanks and eat all the tea cakes offered and in return you put up with the Ps & Qs
Don't hijack this site for the rest of the community

SCaddict

Good on ya Dools. Agree wholeheartedly mate. Don't want this great site to turn into many forums out there where they are more trouble than they are worth.

Debate and idea sharing is what's it about not juvenile name calling!

Michael

i think it would have to consist of mainly guns, with maybe 6 rookies in the midfield…. i can find 4 rookies up back, 2 in the ruck and none up FWD so my forward will mainly prems with karny as the mid pricer.

kodesz

Higgo has insisted on going with 6 premiums in the midfield. Just dont know where he'd get the money to afford a safe forward line. His backline must be very weak if he goes with all guns in the forward line?

rowan

whats happened to heath scotland in defence?

SCaddict

Suspended for the first two rounds and he's getting on about to turn 33 in a few months.

PortJared04

Out of some of the "cookie-cutters" I do NOT have players such as,
Franklin, Zorko, Luenberger, and out of some of the rookies named I don't have Vjney.

@MRB37

I actually dropped Viney recently too.

jimbotraralgon

Like your thinking guys. Viney hasn't come on as much as I thought. Maybe kommer might be passing him?

@MRB37

For me, it came down to picking two out of Viney, Mitchell and Stevens. Since i'm starting 3 rookies in my guts, I went for the bit more mature players in Mitchell and Stevens. 5-5 approach has me with Ollie Wines, Koby Stevens, Kane Mitchell, Jaegar O'Meara and Brad Crouch in my mids.

Ram-Rod

Going with the 'set and forget' forward line this year as there are hardly any forward rookies. The mid pricers aren't looking all that good either. Bynes will burn, Varcoe doesn't look all that great, Monfries has an injury scare, Karnesis unproven, Siposs awkwardly priced…. So here it is, thoughts please:

Backline: GIBBS, BIRCHALL, HEPPELL, NEWMAN, VLASTUIN, GOODES (TERLICH, DOCHERTY)

Midfield: ABLETT, PENDLES, KENNEDY, HANNEBERY, WINES, STEVENS, MITCHELL, O'MEARA (CROUCH, VINEY)

Rucks: JACOBS, VARDY (CURRIE, ROWE)

Forwards: RYDER, ROUGHEAD, ZORKO, ROCKLIFF, MARTIN, CLOKE (MACAFFER, LEE)

SCaddict

I'm of similar thinking regarding the forward structure RR although perhaps a fraction top heavy for my liking so I'm going with a few mid pricers with high job security instead such as Lecras, JJKennedy and Karnezis.

Not even confident that Macaffer will get a game each week such is the depth of the Pies atm. It's certainly very lean pickings in relation to forward rooks this year.

gropes

Carefuk of Vardy – injury?

Matt

Hey guys great work again! What are your thoughts on Lecras in the forward line?

SCaddict

An enticing option although there will probably be a few mid pricers more popular at this stage if you can only fit in 1 or 2.

However I have 3 mid pricers in my forward line so can squeeze him in and reckon he'll be a good stepping stone to Nic Nat by about Rd 6.

Smittzzy

I'm not sure mate that bloody ACL injury is a real pain in the A*s

SCaddict

No question players returning from long term injuries have an added degree of risk hence the favourable pricing whether it be Leuey, Varcoe, Macaffer, Ball, Embley, JJK, Gray, Krakouer, Staker, Bock or Lecras.

Reckon it's a risk worth taking though especially with the extra 6 trades this season. Also I intend to use him as a stepping stone to a premium player so will unlikely still be in my team by mid season even if he remains fit and healthy.

But I also understand his selection is not for everybody so I'm hoping it will be a fruitful POD in my leagues early on.

SCaddict

Yeah Lecras is a tough sell and I can certainly understand why many coaches won't be able to fit him in.

For a player returning from a whole year out of the game with a serious injury $370K is certainly on the steep side. If he was under $300K like his mate JJKennedy then he would likely attract more interest.

But the guy is pure quality up forward and also capable of rotating through the midfield as well so I'm willing to roll the dice on him myself.

But at the same time I can fully appreciate whilst others are looking elsewhere. Certainly a decent talking point anyway.

Matt

I know Lecras is a bit of a risk, but one I am contemplating taking. Most of my team is guns and rookies at the moment but i feel there are not enough solid rookies in the forward line to make that strategy work, so I feel I have to put a couple of mid pricers in there.

Eagle

Expensive for the scores he will averaged.
Need High average scores or cash generation
He wont give you either.
Pass

SCaddict

Another enjoyable and informative listen again fellas but missed the LOCK OR NOT segment.

Varcoe is one cookie cutter I'm passing up on along with Viney.

Viney hasn't done enough just yet to justify the hype in my view and reckon there are more attractive alternatives to Varcoe for forward mid pricers such as Karnezis, Lecras, JJKennedy, Petterd, Siposs, Cornelius etc.

SCaddict

Yeah hopefully they are two PODs I don't live to regret as they are both very popular selections he he.

Smittzzy

I said it last week and i'll say it again, poo Dan Hannebery isnt coming under any consideration for a potential premium. 2 solid performances from him with great efficiency, just lacking clearances.

SCaddict

Yes a serious alternative to Bennell, Shuey, Mundy etc and will be a nice POD for you mate.

Cold Ass Honky

At the moment im sporting a forward structure to 'Ram-Rod', for similar reasons.

Def: Goddard, Gibbs, Watts, Newman, Goodes, Terlich (Stevenson, Docherty)

Mid: Ablett, Pendles, Watson, S Mitchell, Mundy, Stevens, Mitchell, O'Meara (Viney, Crouch)

Ruck: Cox, Currie (Rowe, Witts)

Fwd: Ryder, Zorko the magnificent, Rockliff, Martin, Cloke, Macaffer (Neade, Lee)

Changing about 5 times (or more) a day, so this may not last long lol

Jeremy

*forward structure similar to 'Ram-Rod'

Jeremy

That being said, have already modified this slightly:
In: Wines, Heath Shaw
Out: S Mitchell, Docherty.

Going 4 starting rookies in the mids, and 1 in each other line. Makes money in the mids, sures up the other lines. Far more value in the midfield rookies than in any other spot.

Cold Ass Honky

Ok im obviously posting with two different names and are going mad. Also, Duffield Heppell combo looking better than Shaw Newman i believe

Michael

Jock mate Walker is being severely underated by you. Kicked 5 goals on the weekend too not 3 like you said

dan

pretty sure he only kicked 3 dude

Michael

2 Super goals and 3 Goals. scored 36 points. I watched the game and the AFL stats also say 2 super goals and 3 regular.

AFL Guru

Correct, 2 Super goals and 3 goals.

Eagle

t walker with Adelaides draw IS A LOCK!!!!

@MRB37

His ability to boot goals from 60 metres out from a few steps is one of the reasons I think he won't suffer as much as some people believe due to the loss of Tippett. He doesn't need to stay in the forward 50 to be involved, an excellent kick (Check out something like this to see how accurate he can be http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZvCT_T59O0&t=… and has a good pair of hands on him, too.

With that being said, I'd agree that Sheenan(sp?) putting him at #9 is an overestimation on his part. He's the 2nd best forward in the game, only currently listed player to kick more goals at 64 games is Lance Franklin (Franklin had 167, Tex has 153). Easy fit in the 25-20 range, but can't add him as a top 10 guy yet.

Philby

Great pod cast again guys, this seasons structures are starting to take shape, mids lots of rookie options so the variety of structures there are interesting IMHO 5 rookies is the go that's where the money is. The ruck forward structure is where I think the difference will be made with the amount of good rookie rucks available and the lack of forward rookies makes it interesting. Currie has come out very much like the Zachary Smith of 2011 and the Giles of 2012, and I think Rowe is better than the 2012 options of Redden and Big O so a 1 & 3 option is very viable with maybe a Witts etc as you third rookie ruck. The best thing about 2013 are forward ruck gun options that we have and I think Higgo in his genius is right on the money and can not be ignored with 2 of Cox,Ryder or Roughy in your forward line you will always be asured your ruck is covered and the money saved you can fill you starting forward line with player you know will be out on the park every week but of course you guys already know this being the experts you are but I just get so excited at this time of year that I can't stop talking about it and my family just don't understand, thank you guys.

Lar

I am a Roos fan and I do not see Currie bring selected before Goldsteinby round one. You’ll be praying for Goldy to be injured if u lock Currie at R2, silly choice

Philby

I think if he plays he will potentially score better than the rookie forwards that are available and if he doesn't play I will just swing one of the two gun ruck/forwards I have in my forward line to replace him or use Rowe if he is playing.

SCaddict

I've created another Jock Reynolds Community public league. Anyone here is welcome to join.

Hi Guys,

Any thoughts or feed back on the below team would be highly appreciated…

Def: Goddard, Gibbs, Duffield, Hartlett, Vlastuin, Goodes, (Terlich, Stevenson)

Mid: Ablett, Pendles, Dangerfield, Mundy, D Martin, Stevens, Wines, O'Meara (K Mitchell, Crouch)

Ruck: Leuenberger, Currie (Rowe, Witts)

Fwd: Cox, Roughead, Chapman, Rockliff, LeCras, Varcoe, (Macaffer, Lee)

Remaining salary cap is $15,200….

Thank for your comments / feed back / help……

Raj….

JJFyzz

Love the team. I’d get rid of Martin for Moloney.

Not sold on the Frenchman or Varcoe or Macaffer.

I like your rucks in Cox and Roughy. Unsure about Leuy though

SCaddict

Yes Dusty looks out of place in the midfield structure. Perhaps consider moving him into the forward line at maybe the expense of Chappy who turns 32 this year. Then you could get another specialist mid price or premium guy into your middle.

chandanrajdb

Thanks for your comment above mate….

Made couple of changes…

In: Karnezis, T Armstrong (Syd – Def)
Out: LeCras, Vlastuin

Thank you
Raj

Jay

Rucks are the only weak spot in the side. Although over the ground you have the scorin ncovered. Not too much room to sell cows an upgrade rookies

podsi

Great work on picking Chappy instead of Zorko!!

chandanrajdb

still a question mark on couple of guys i have picked in my team above mate….

1. Heppell Vs Hartlett – Heppell was good against GWS whereas hartlett was really good against WCE (who are one of the Favourites to win this years premiership)….and agian need to consider that hartlett is injury prone…..not sure…..

2. Chapman VS Zorko – Chapman had a very good pre-season and he is looking really good in the NAB cup, and in one of his article in afl.com i read he has mentioned that he had one of the best pre-season for nearly 2 to 3 years…..ZORKO 2nd year player can he do the same thing what he did last year…..not so sure!!!……..

Guys any thoughts would be much appreciated…..

dools

chappy has injury, Not clear on how long but inklings from Sleepy Hollow are miss 1 – 2 weeks…Zorko the Magnificent Ihighly rate but as a second year player I feel likey to let you down SC points wise teams have weighed and measured him…Not for me
Hepple is a tag target, gamble ….Hartlett is just an injury gamble Naw mate from me

chandanrajdb

Thanks dools for your comment above mate…….

I have revised the team as below…….

Def: Goddard, Gibbs, Duffield, Heppell, Vlastuin, Goodes, (Terlich, Stevenson)

Mid: Ablett, Pendles, Dangerfield, H Bannell, N Fyfe, Stevens, O'Meara, K Mitchell (Crouch, Viney)

Ruck: Mumford, Currie (Rowe, Witts)

Fwd: Cox, Roughead, Rockliff, D Martin, J Kennedy, Karnezis, (Macaffer, Lee)

Remaining salary cap is $600….

Raj….

Jay

Hey guys. Great podcast once again. Would love some thoughts on my side though 🙂 I thinks it's coming along we'll with a few more changes this week.

Def: Goddard, Gibbs, Hartlett, vlaustin, goodes, terlich (coloqun,docherty)
Mid: Albert, swan, danger, cotch, Murphy, Stevens, mitchell, omeara (viney, crouch)
Ruck: Jacobs, leunberger, (currie, Rowe)
FWd: cox, rocky, Martin, watts, varcoe, mcaffer (kerridge, paparone)

Thoughts?

Cold Ass Honky

Solid. Would downgrade Murphy though – Bennell, Fyfe, Mundy, Shuey all decent options. Spend the cash elsewhere, Leuenberger and Varcoe are potential burn men. Wouldn't put my eggs in the Burger basket – my opinion though. Although many people are souring on him

mathew

ok so i want a prem from the pies. most have gone with pendles, swan. is beams a better option than both? i dont c beams getting rested as they will rest both swan or pendles. beams payed all 22 and had an amazing output.

SCaddict

He's really flying under the radar isn't he even though he scored the 4th highest average last season and only 23 years old and likely to keep improving. Should score well again this season with all the attention Swan and Pendles get.

I guess Swan and Pendles have delivered elite output for longer so are regarded as safer bets for all that money.

Not sure I've seen a single team with him in there so would be a massive POD.

Cold Ass Honky

Need to pick one of these pairs:
-Watson or JPK
– Duffield or Hartlett
– Fyfe or Mundy.

Only combination that doesn't work cap wise is Watson, Duffield, Fyfe. Although space could be made.. thoughts?

Carl

JPK, duff man, Fyfe. Will ave over 320

@MRB37

Agree with Carl, CAH.

JJFyzz

What say you with the team below!

Gentlemen, a great podcast!!

B: Goddard, Gibbs, Duffield, Heppell, Vlaustin, B Goodes, (Terlich, Stevensen)
M: Swan, Pendles, Dangerfield, Shuey, K Stevens, K Mitchell, Crouch (Viney, O’Meara)
R: S Jacobs, D Currie (S Rowe, J Witts)
F: Cox, Stevie J, Zorko, Rockliff, DeBoer, JJ Kennedy (Lee, B Kennedy)

Thanks
JJFYZZ

Eagle

Its not a full team

JJFyzz

Whoops, I must have been drinking. I missed Wines in the midfield

B: Goddard, Gibbs, Duffield, Heppell, Vlaustin, B Goodes, (Terlich, Stevensen)
M: Swan, Pendles, Dangerfield, Shuey, K Stevens, O Wines, K Mitchell, Crouch (Viney, O’Meara)
R: S Jacobs, D Currie (S Rowe, J Witts)
F: Cox, Stevie J, Zorko, Rockliff, DeBoer, JJ Kennedy (Lee, B Kennedy)

Carl

No GAJ your crazy!!

Not convinced on Rowe.. Surely he is behind Kruezer, Hampson, and probably Warnock too. And if he’s played fwd he’ll be behind Waite when he plays as well as Walker and Casboult.

JS an issue??

Carl

Lee will play 4-8 games max. He’s shown this preseason he will ave around 60 at best too. Not worth it imo

JJFyzz

Any other Fwd rookies then?

Kerridge, Neade??

Bomber Stef

Looks good JJFyzz.

No Ablett though?

I think the gamble will pay off with Currie as a starting Ruckman.

Eagle

Strong team that should score very well.

JJFyzz

Thanks Eagle and Carl.

Still thinking about swapping Swan/ Shuey out for Ablett/Mundy.

Stevie J could go and bring in Tex Walker. Adelaide have a great home draw to start.

BPP

At the moment I'm going with kreuzer and bellchambers. I can't bring myself to trust Leuenberger at this stage. In doing that, I sacrifice money, obviously, and I end up with Sam Mitchell and Zorko as M4 and M5, and Matty Wright as F3.

DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Duffield, Heppell, Vlastuin, Goodes ( Stevenson, Terlich)

MID: Ablett, Pendles, JPK, S.Mitchell, Zorko, K.Stevens, K.Mitchell, Crouch (O'Meara, Viney)

RUC: Kreuzer, Bellchambers (Currie, Rowe)

FWD: Cox, Rockliff, Wright, Varcoe, Karnezis, Macaffer (Neade, Lamb)

Say whatever you want.

JJFyzz

Backs look good

Mids good although not sold on Mitchell. See Thompson, Pridis, Shuey, Mundy, Fyfe or Barlow as being better options

I got burnt last year with Kreuzer. Don't rate him. Bellchambers could a good POD or a failure.

Like Wright. Not sure if Macaffer will get game time

Bomber Stef

Better options than McCaffer as a rookie forward. His JS is a risk.

Agree with JJFyzz – better ruck options than Kreuzer. Bellchambers could be a hit or miss. Consider Ryder and Luenbeurglarrr.

SCaddict

Agree with the others on Kreuuuu. I had him in my team last year and got screwed mid season when Rats played him almost exclusively forward which meant terrible scores. He was played in the ruck more towards the end of the season and his fantasy scoring improved but "once burnt twice shy" I think the saying goes. 🙂

Zorko is probably better placed in your forward line if you can wrangle it.

Seany M

Is Koby Stevens a better pick up then Wines? Also, already got GAJ and Swan in my mids, gonna pick two more out of Pendles, Danger and Cotchin and cant decide which two!! Any suggestions?

@MRB37

Stevens has the advantage of having 4 years in an AFL system, so you'd expect that he'd be better suited to putting up more consistent scores for the year than Wines. I've got both in my side at the moment.

SCaddict

Yes agree with everyone about Stevens. Has a mature body that can better withstand the rigours of a long season. Ollie Wines has a heck of a lot of upside too so both are in my team.

Ben

wines over stevens
Stevens couldn't get a game at the Eagles
Wines big bodied player exactly what Port needed will fit in well
is cheaper with beater job security

johnny

feedback please

def: goodard, gibbs, duffield, broughton, goodes, terlich (docherty, colquhoun)

mid: ablett, pendles, watson, selwood, shuey, crouch, o'meare, viney (mitchell, stevens)

Ruck: ryder, leuenberger (rowe, currie)

fwd: cox, zorko, rockliff, varcoe, byrnes, macaffer (lee, kerridge)

Bank: 59 500

BPP

Want to get Vlastuin in instead of one of your low end def rookies?

JJFyzz

Can Brought, get Vlaustin and then take the extra cash to up grade on or 2 of the mid price forwards

johnny

swapped vlaustin for broughton

then swapped bynes for bartel?

Bomber Stef

What is the JS on Vlaustin?

JJFyzz

Pendles and Danger for mine

Jaybee23

Thoughts on this team
Def- b.goddard b.gibbs b.houli s.atley b.goodes d.terlich (n.vlastuin d.van unen)
Mids- D.beams t.cotchin s.mitchell j.watson d.mundy b crouch j.omeara o.wines (l Whitfield k Mitchell
Rucks- s.jacobs m.leunberger (s.rowe d.currie)
Forwards- t.rockliff d.martin p.chapman j.watts t.varcoe p.karnezis (b mccafer m.spanger)
Still 50,000 in the kitty also best option for captain

Bomber Stef

Ablett is a must – possibly for Mitchell?

Good pick on Mundy!!

Better rookies available with safer JS than McCaffer.

Jaybee23

To get Ablett I’d need to find another 100k so would take a bit of downgrading and not to sure where’d I’d wanna do that any ideas?
Mundy was a lock for me at that price I think he will hav a massive year

Jaybee23

Swapped Watson for montagna been in good for and stk have a fairly easy start to the season hoping I can pick up a bit and swapped Mitchell for Ablett thoughts

Shimma

Real keen on Newman this year and looking for a way to get him in

DEF: Shaw, Gibbs, Duffield, Heppell, Vlastuin, Goodes (Colquhon, Terlich)

Anyone I could get rid of for him? Thinking of dumping Shaw and Siposs for Newman and Jack Darling?

Carl

Swap for Heppel. Will ave more than him

SCaddict

Yeah tough one Shimma. I really rate Newey too with his new role on the wing but I just can't fit him in either as 5 premium quality defenders would just be too much money invested there.

Although I'm not a Siposs fan I'm not sure what you will gain with Darling over Siposs will offset the difference that Shaw is likely to average over Newey.

I actually like your backline as it is.

D MAN

Hi guys,
Take a look at my team and let me know what you think.
I am not settled on the rookies as yet but the rest of the team im pretty happy with.
DEF:
Goddard Gibbs Heppell Atley Vlastuin Goodes Pittard Terlich
MID:
Ablett Pendlebury Cotchin Bennell Shuey OMeara Crouch K.Mitchell Wines Neade
RUCK:
Z.Smith Leuenberger Currie Rowe
FWD:
Cox Zorko Rockliff Johnson Varcoe Karnezis McAffer Lee

Bomber Stef

Looks good … few considerations for you:

1. Swan for Pendles
2. Better valued mids than Bennell and Shuey
3. Better rookie options than McAffer.

SCaddict

Looks a very decent team to me DMan.

I'm not a huge believer in Atley and would suggest you try to stretch to either Newman or Harbrow for the extra $30K if you can. But maybe Atley will prove me wrong.

Shimma

Which combo: Newman, Zorko, Siposs (only 20k in bank though)
OR Shaw, Siposs, LeCras
OR Newman, Darling, LeCras

Cheers

Mac

Newman, Zorko, Siposs wins it for me – the others are a bit too risky and I don't really see Lecras getting past the $400,000 mark.

Goncalo

What do people think of my team?

DEF: Dempster, R.Murphy, Fletcher, Duigan, Johannisen, Bootsma, (Frost, Oxley)

MID: Tuck, Mclean, Lewis, Masten, Prestia, Rischitelli, Seedsman, Tutt, (Schroder, Buckley)

FWD: Harvey, Ballantyne, Bird, Jetta, Vickery, Hoskin-Elliot (McBean, Taberner)

I'm really confident with my team. Have got a good mix and have a few players that will be my POD. What does the community think?

Tom

Oh mate, the 50k is yours in the bag……..

Goddard in the MID is a really bad idea…

SCaddict

You may want to consider alternatives to the Big Mummy. He's missed quite a few games in recent years through injury and suspension.

Leuey is also looking a little questionable atm with achilles tendinitis so you may need to re-assess your starting rucks.

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/afl/teams/brisbane-li

I like your forward line btw.

ablett swan kennedy Dangerfield moloney stevens wines crouch (Mitchell omeara)

cox currie (rowe witts)

franklin roughead zorko rockliff cloke varcoe (maccaffer paparone)

if currie doesn't play rnd 1 can move roughead to the ruck and play one of maccaffer or paparone on the ground.

would love some feedback.. thanks

banz

and if currie does not play round 2, 3…

I dont think caffer and paparone will be on the field at all early.
Not having a shot mate, I wish they were, I would be on them
in a flash.

were you going to use the captain loophole through the ruck?
could get tricky seeing the hawks are playing late in the round..
and if currie does not play.

BANZ

@simmo, have some good prems in there, perhaps too many
fully priced players?

I like maloney SELECTION.

How many rucks should there be in the FWD?
Right now I have Jacobs & Currie as my R1&R2, with Rowe and Witts, then Cox in the FWD. Is this enough, or do i need Roughy in the FWD aswell?

Carl

Rough will be in the top 8-10 fwds by seasons end so grab him as well as cox

SCaddict

Cox in the forward line should be enough so just pick Roughy if you really want him.

kodesz

My team currently reads:

DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Duffield, Heppell,Goodes,Vlaustin (Colquhoun, Terlich)

MID:Ablett, Pendles, Danger, Deledio, Shuey, Mundy, Mitchell, O'meara (Crouch, Viney)

RUC: Jacobs, Currie (Rowe, Witts)

FWD: Roughead, Rockliff, Stevie J, Karnezis, Mayes, Macaffer (Kerridge, Neade)

Would appreciate anyones opinion! cheers

BANZ

Will Mayes Caffer, Kerridge and Neade be playing round 1? Stevie J is out, if currie rowe/witts miss as well I see 3 or 4 donuts.

Like ya mids, maybe too many dollars in there?

kodesz

as you can see mate im not settled on the rookies and probably wont go with them in round 1, stevie j out doesn't worry me as i'm only going for a league win. Believe he can average 105+ this year

BANZ

Yer I like SJ as well, good pick there.

Problem is kodesz I dont see a hell of a of forward rookies
starting, which may mean you have to spend more in the
forwards. Tuff year mate.

kodesz

very true mate, may have to load up with mid pricers in the fwd line instead

BANZ

mate I wish there we 2 damn forward rookies…just 2…maybe Neade..

Smittzzy

Macaffer and Neade should play round 1.

SCaddict

Nice team. Only vulnerability is in the forward line so would advise you to sacrifice one of your 6 premium mids to bolster the bottom end of your forward line.

If it's any consolation I only have 3 premium mids so you will still have 2 more premium mids than me and a better forward line than what you currently have.

PortJared04

Moloney + Fyfe ? (200k in the bank)
Or
Watson + Viney? (418k in the bank)
Or
Watson + Moloney (50k in the bank)

The second option would leave me with solely a guns + rooks midfield.

Boysinblue123

watson and viney 100% mate!
fyfe and moloney = 2 midpricers, which is always a risky move.
saying that it could pay off but fyfes injury proneness and with moloney still settling in to a new team makes to be too risky when compared to a proven supercoach champion and former brownlow medallist and one of the best rookie midfielders of 2013

Boysinblue123

hey guys,
polishing up on the team now, thoughts and feedback would be appreciated please!!

feedback would be great thanks lads!

Chenzz

daniher wont play much will be eased into the game

kodesz

like deledio in the mids, leuenberger in doubt for round 1 maybe consider chaning him. Otherwise like it, well done.

Boysinblue123

yeah leuey worries me a little, but will wait for the diagnosis on how bad it is.

changed daniher to zorko, kennedy to shuey, and heppel to stevenson

agree with the comment on daniher chenzz

Campbo

Chenzz

hey guys, loving the work that's being produced on here! just wondering what you all think about my team, feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Defs – goddard, gibbs, heppel, broughton, goodes, terlich (stevenson, vlaustin)

Mids – pendles, cotchin, boyd, shuey, benell, whitfield, o'meara, k.mitchell (viney, crouch)

Rucks – jacobs, currie (rowe, witts)

Forwards – bartel, rockliff, johnson, wright, watts, varcoe (neade, lee)

Thanks guys!!!

Carl

Solid team in general. Personally I would swap out Broughton for Duffield or Newman, Boyd out for anybody (won’t be top 10 mids by end of season), Whitfield will prob be managed by GWS so looking at 12-15 games for the year. If that’s enough games for you then keep him. Love Johnson in your fwd line wish I could fit him in somewhere he’ll ave 105+ I reckon. Would swap Lee for Macaffer, Kennedy (Coll), or another rookie.

Ben

Who would you guys prefer
Deliedo or Cotchin?

PortJared04

Cotch for me, however Deledio will still be as consistent as ever and be a fair POD.
Both guns

Ben

I can't seem both of them fitting into my team unless I get rid of Danger. Really tough to say! Thanks anyways.

PortJared04

Danger > Cotch & Delids

kodesz

I've got deledio selected ahead of cotchin just as a POD, as im expecting most people in my leagues to have cotchin. Reckon they will both provide consistent premium output so i guess you cant lose.

Ben

I can still fit in both of them but I'm leaving Shuey out. What's the best thing I should?

PortJared04

Okay top 3 FWD Rookies this year anyone? Need a couple for my FWD line.

kodesz

Mayes, Neade, Kerridge probably in that order. Really nothing much to pick from this year

Mac

I'd probably have to say Macaffer, Neade, Lee? Probably won't average to much but I reckon they'll get the most games.

Carl

Lee will play 4-8 games max

Carl

How am I doing community? Feel free to post whatever thoughts you have.
Def: Goddard, Gibbs, Duffield, Newman, Goodes, Vluastin (Terlich, Colquhoun)
Mid: GAJ, Swan, JPK, Danger, Fyfe, Stevens, Wines, Crouch (O’meara, Kommer)
Ruck: Roughhead, Currie (Sinclair for DPP, Moller for captains loophole/cheap)
Fwd: Cox, Ryder, Rocky, Martin, Karnezis, Macaffer (Kerridge, Kennedy)

Would love to fit Stevie J in there somewhere but don’t want to trade my current FWD premiums as I reckon they’re all set for 100+ years.

Smithayy

Any thoughs or changes i could make?

BACK : Gibbs, Heppell, Hartlett, Houli, Russel J, Goodes B, (Docherty S, Colquhoun)

Mid : Waston, Cotchin, Pendlebury, Selwood, Boak, Monfries, Mitchell K, O'Meara, (Crouch, Neade)

Ruc : Jacobs, Leuenberger, (Rowe, Currie)

Fow : Bartel, Zorko, Rockliff, Kennedy, Karnezis, Varcoe, (Kerridge, Paparone)

Carl

Swap Monfries/Boak for Premium/ Rookie.
Not sure how much cash those 2 add up to but it should work.
Ideally Swan, Danger or GAJ if you have enough $$.

PortJared04

Solid team with some differences to most which I like, Gus Monfries was a lock for me but slightly injured his hammy a few weeks ago, see if named round 1.
Like Boak.

Carl

Only 5k left btw – not ideal. That might get solved on the day before rd1 ‘rookie shuffle’

Hoping I don’t draft this years ‘Relton Roberts’ lol. That guy killed me

Ally

Hey guys any feedback would be appreciated
Backs Goddard shaw Gibbs birchill Duffy goodes pittard terlich
Mids ablett swan cotchin Kennedy omera Stevens valastin Mitchell kerrige viney
Rucks roughhead luenberger curry mcbean
Forward cox bartell varcoe rockliff macaffer Mayes Rowe Simpson

Carl

See the article one of the boys did on Bartel. Maybe in for a decline this year

Ally

What about chappy or Steve j ?

Carl

Stevie J will ave 100-105+ and Chappy prob 95+. Bartel 85-90. Zorko 100.

SCaddict

Yes I'd pick Stevie J rather than Bartel or Chappy. He's expected to spend much of his time in the midfield this season which should result in better fantasy scores than when he played mainly forward in years past.

Smithayy

Does anyone know any good rookies about three in each besides ruck?

Mac

Def – Goodes, Terlich, Stevenson, Pittard, Docherty, Van Unen, Vlastuin
Mid – O'Meara, Mitchell, Viney, Crouch, Wines, Stevens, Lonergan
Fwd – Macaffer, Neade, Lee, Paparone, Mayes

I gave more than three because they won't all be named rnd 1.

Ally

What's everyone's opinion on Steve j or chappy ?

kodesz

like Stevie J, reckon he'll have a good year. Chappy too old for mine

SCaddict

Couldn't agree more.
