Jock Reynolds - The Father of FantasyThe week we have all been waiting for has arrived.

I’ve been in self imposed exile in flapping tarp studio this afternoon making calls, checking in with the inner sanctum, and finalising the final rookie cheat sheet prior to lockout this week.

You might have heard that the podcast will be Monday night this week.. let’s just say this is one that you will not want to miss community. We’ll blow the bloody roof off this studio with the amount of fantasy significance that’ll be pinging around this joint Monday night. Don’t miss it!

CLICK HERE FOR MY FINAL 2014 ROOKIE CHEAT SHEET

Now I hate to pass the bloody hat around – but for those who are willing and able – we’d be tickled pink if you could throw a donation our way using the Donate button on the sidebar thing over there. Aside from helping us to be able to keep doing what we love for you here – you’ll also get yourself a spot in the Jock Reynolds donor’s group. You can battle it out with some of your community mates – but also give yourself a much better chance at qualifying for the Jock Reynolds Premier League divisional system in 2015.

Duncan

Team I think I will run with!
DEF: Mitchell Hanley Grimes Suckling Webster Mcdonald ( Langford Geourgiou)
MID: Ablett Pendlebury Watson Kennedy Beams Tyson Polec Ellis (Dunstan Cunningham)
RUC: Mumford Sandilands (Thurlow King)
FWD: Dangerfield Martn Pavlich Caddy Higgins Rohan (JKH Impey)
$59,900
Few questions I have
Watson or Rockliff
Should I downgrade Pendlebury to Cotchin and Upgrade Higgins?

Thoughts
Any critisicsm is welcome

Craig

Watson / Rockliff – toss a coin. Both durable and will average very similar at year end.
Keep Pendles…. downgrade one of Watson or Kennedy to a rookie and upgrade Grimes (to K Simpson or S Mitchell??) and Higgins if possible.
The midfield rookies will be by far where most coin is made this year so I don't think you need to start with 4 mid premos.
I can't have Higgins purely because of the man's history!

king arthur

Hi Duncan, Give Higgins a go and if he gets injured just trade him.
Right now he's firing.

Bender

I've got some criticism for you Duncan. How about posting your team in an appropriate thread. We are all here to discuss Jock's rookie selections and not your team mate. Stop being selfish and contribute to the site like others have by giving some genuine input about the selected topic (that being rookies).

Duncan

What Thread?

KadeK is a jet

I suggest you only have 2 hawthorn players in defence. Makes you safer when the byes come around. You should have posted this in Community team reveals. Overall good team though.

Duncan

Sorry Guys I didn't see the Community team Reveals Article

Bailey

I love it Jock you bloody gun! Was happy to see every man in green already in my team.

JJFYZZ

This is our Christmas Jock. "Deck the halls with balls of Sherrin….

Duncan

Tyson, Michie or Aish for M6

Andrew

Tyson definitely, but get Aish as M7 he will grow in value quickly. Michie is to injury prone

Duncan

I need 3 out of Tyson Aish Polec Ellis

Harrison

Aish Polec and Tyson

Give It A Go

Thanks Jock and team have had M5-M8 filled with the rookies of late, have settled for Dunstan, Polec, Ellis and Crouch has M7-M8 and 2 subs.
Great rookie sheet

Duncan

You Must be light on n the Midfield

Give It A Go

HI Duncan,

Mid's are not that bad

Ablett, Cotchin, JJP, Beams, Thomas, Shiels then Polec, Ellis sub Dunstan and Crouch

What do you think?

Cheers

Duncan

Oh I see What you did there thought you meant them 4 plus 2 subs
Also nice Looking midfield man Like The JPK And Cotchin Picks
You should have a good Cash Generation

I think I will definitely have JPK Just not sure Wether I will have Cotchin just ye

Pendlebury VS Cotchin and 115K Thought?

Give It A Go

With Beams playing, I was thinking that Pendlebury may go down in price so I could bring him after the rnd 8 bye

Plowdiggity

Thoughts on Wanganeen? Thought for sure he’d make the sheet. Been bloody impressive all preseason. Will start on my bench definitely, and possibly on the field ahead of Ellis and Dunstan if named r1.

THE SALTSHAKER

Langford subvest rnd 1

Darcy

Was thinking about him too. If he gets the call up, hit his price will be in my team ASAP.
With Cyril moving to the backline maybe here's a place for him up forward? Or Vica-verca, if Cyril stays forward there could be a place on the back flank?

If not named definitely watch this space if Cyril does another hammy.

Darcy

Touchwood

daryl_prasad

Wanganeen great.

throttlefinger

No thoughts on Dom Tyson, Jock? Thought he handled himself pretty well during NAB.

Not slotted him in, though. Too pricey. Considering Michie. Roos has that team disposal happy so ol' Viv may benefit.

throttlefinger

Agreed. And Higgo's Jack Martin article is always swimming in my head…Dom is only $5K less than Jaegar Faux'Meara (bit of a stretch, I know).

Bang up cheat sheet, Jock. Right now debate between Michie and Aish. Leaning toward Jimmyboy. Getting better with each game. Built for long haul. Playing for the rebuilding team giving me pause but HE could be this year's Jaegar O'Meara.

WombatsFC

Hi Jock my Foxtel must be broken because in the Melbourne games I watched Tyson is the lock and Michie will be lucky to get on the field in the first 3.
There is a big heart difference between the two and Roosy loves a young bloke with a big heart.

Super_Freak

I've had Tyson and Aish in and out of my team for weeks. Both look good, but I might end up with Aish. Still can't believe we got him in the draft. He should have gone at 3. He's a Gun!

throttlefinger

Agree, SF. Aish picked up his game in each of his NAB stints. He's in and leading the mid rook brigade.

You're gonna have a lot of fun watching him grow the next couple years, my man.

@Linca_HotTiges

yep, with you Jock.. warming to Arthur Aish..

Tyson vs Aish.. or drop Sir Viv and have both Tyson and Aish.. thoughts gentlemen?

KadeK is a jet

Aish only because he is much cheaper than Tyson. Viv and aish is a good and likely combo for most people. Shouldn't really go wrong with any, will all play.

KadeK is a jet

I absolutely love this Jock. BEEN WAITING FOR THIS ALL WEEK! Even though the rookies will be hard to choose from this year, I will be a very interesting and exciting year for AFL fantasy. Hope all goes well during the year Community!
Kade K

KadeK is a jet

Thanks. Can I get your thoughts on Ben Lennon? Any chance of round 1?

@Linca_HotTiges

very unlikely. McDono more of a chance.. Expect games out of Lennon though.. consider after 2 games..

zimmerbd

Lennon is injured isn't he?

Kev

Yeah, he went in for surgery. Consider around the byes

Duncan

Hey Jock, Who do you think will get the Vest at Hawthorn Wangeneen or Langford? If they are both name round 1

Jayden

There's a real lack of quality rookie defenders this year besides Macca. I think we've gotta pray to the supercoach gods that Georgiou gets elevated.

Also I'd like to add that I think Lewis Taylor is a good F8, he might not play round 1 but he'll be in by round 2 or 3 at the latest.

Kev

Starting to lean that way, Jayden. Brad crouch didn't play round 1 last year then came in round 2 and smashed it

@Linca_HotTiges

Jocccccccckkkkkkkk… thoughts on Brodie Martin? priced at 175k DEF. Good NAB form playing in an undermanned Crows outfit… cash cow?

@Linca_HotTiges

any Crow supporters out there? been around a while..

SCaddict

Very much in contention mate especially if we get shortchanged on the likes of Georgiou, Langdon, Langford and Clurey and some of these blokes aren't either named at all, or are named but are designated as subs.

Lord Relton Roberts

Jock that's a ripper! perfect confirmation of my preseason research youve done it again boss!

BlueBallsFC

Young Viv is worth the coin Jocko. Will be a bloody ripper cow!

SCaddict

I think so. Like all these rookies there is some element of risk attached but from what he's shown in the preseason I believe he's a very decent selection.

Dools

Mate what a great Cheat Sheet thanks this has now cemented 5 newcomers into the team KraenKats.
Love the work and the honesty from the studio. Keep it up mate. Awesome and Inspiring…Thanks

Luttski

Is there a qualifiers group this season?

Bender
William

Is it worth me dropping Murphy down to a rookie and having 3 on field in the mid? That's almost 400k to spend on the very barren defence and forwards?

Craig

Looks like there will be a limited number of fwd and def cash cows this year, so barren fwd and defence would't be ideal.

Super_Freak

That's my plan. Just too many good rookies in the guts, and not enough at either end. Reckon 3 on field is about the right number

SCaddict

It's certainly a strategy I've seriously entertained throughout the pre-season.

Will probably go with two onfield mid rookies in the end but may come back to three if we get some nasty non selection surprises in either our back or forward rooks.

BlueBallsFC

going with 3 in the guts gives pretty good cover at the ends of the team imo. there is easily 6 rookies you could have in the mid

Sully321

Great work jock managed to bring in 5 new recruits to my team

Wollee wol wol

Great cheat sheet Jock, was a top notch read.
Looking forward to hearing the boys pick it apart in the pod cast. Having to wait that extra day is bloody driving a man to drink a frosty cold Melbourne bitter.
Interested to hear the other boys thought on Tyson

Brookesy

Fantastic work Jock, greatly appreciated, a veritable beacon of light in this very foggy year for rookies.

THE SALTSHAKER

Cant download pdf ….Jock can you post a screenshot on facebook please mate so I can view your work

taylorwoof

Love your work again Jock! Always A plus stuff!!!

Along with selecting the 'right rookies', how many should i select is something i've been contemplating for awhile.

What Midfield structure are you guys currently running with?

4-1-3
4-0-4
5-0-3
5-1-2
6-0-2

Right now i have a 5-0-3 structure.

I'm thinking should we start 4 rookies in our mid's as they appear to be the strongest rookies. But is starting 4 too risky? – 1. Fair chance they will not all flourish and 2. Missing out on extra scoring potential in your 'engine room'…….I'd love to hear the communities thoughts as we move closer to the first game of Round 1.

Give It A Go

Hi TW,

I'm going with 4-2-2 at the moment, toying with the idea of changing Thomas or Shiels with Viv or Aish to free some cash and 4-1-3 structure.

Whats your Thoughts?

Dogs

4-1-3 for me, lack of rookie options elsewhere so opted for more premiums in def/fwd lines and hope the mid rookies score well and earn cash

taylorwoof

Hey Give It A Go!

Guess it's what feel's most comfortable, and how you'll invest the extra cash…..if the downgrade then enables you to have a more balanced fwd line or def (with spending the extra cash there)….then that could be a good move.

I just can't settle on a mid structure. I guess i should be happy we're being spoilt with quite a few rookie options and some handy mid pricers as well…..hahahaha….

Rocksta

I've gone 4-1-3 as well ATM, but I just say I'm struggling with it.

It's basically a choice between Heater and Tyson, or Clurey and Cotchin( giving me a 5-1-2).

Thoughts?

Kev

Clurey and cotch in by the length of flemington straight

Rocksta

Thanks Kev.

But let's look at Averages:
Heater should average around 100 again for the year, and Tyson say 70.
Cotchin 110 and Clurey say 55.

Thus, it's fairly even. Slightly cheaper to go Cotchin and Clurey but my team looks better balanced with option A.
That's why I love this Game…………….but it does my head in as well

Hawkaz

Cotch could end up averaging 120 and heater only 90 so just remember, but its a good stratergy! maybe look at a def like Simpson, Hanley, hurn..

THE SALTSHAKER

5-1-2 for me.

Found value spending $560k to $570 in mids than other lines. At that price up fwd ive Riewoldt, Harvey, Dusty vs down back Bartel. Or Cox in Ruck. I think besides Cox they will all drop. My choices in mid are JPK or Cotchin who i think will both go up this year. Cant take Cotch as would be my 4th mid with rnd 8bye.

Im struggling with that same dilemna with using Dangers $600k who will go down, on Watson in mids who i think will also go up this year. Then id have a 6-1-1 set up which is crazy. As i think Polec, Ellis $170k will score well enough and id have to sacrifice one of them for fwd options like Rowan $170k

LAZWAGON

Bro you don't make any sense whatsoever. Also Cox is gonna go DOWN DOWN DOWN just like Coles' prices

THE SALTSHAKER

Its a points per dollar argument. Who you expect will rise, who will go down for the same money spent. The thing with Dangerfield and Cotchin is they get bonus pts from Champion data with every touch hahaha so maybe he might hold his value? Cox is like another midfielder. Gets so much more footy around the ground than any other ruck.

Minson will be great again, but could easily drop that average and price. Looking at his season last year he was so consistent, where as Danger was a roller coaster. For $609 to $616k to me Minson is the better option than Danger, especially whilst there are minimal ruck option.

The only thing stopping me is his price is at ceiling for him I think. I've taken Jacobs, hoping he bounces back up to 95 to 100 avg. Make some coinon rookies then upgrade later in year to the #1 ruck.

The reason Im staying with Danger is he should be the highest scoring Forward this year. But could easily drop below a hundred if he is not played in the guts like he was in 2012. He had dropped from 26.7 disposals down to 23 last year. Still has massive games but versus say Watson who avg 120 in 2012 and was on the way again last year before they gave up due to drug saga, and a couple of avg games he easily could have hit 120 again. I think in 2011 his avg was 117 before injury struck. That to me is consistency and that's what you want.

THE SALTSHAKER

The other issue is you miss out on midfield rookies. That's the main reason, and whilst the going is good, you need to jump on them and generate the cash.

shane

Makes a lot of sense to me, the sort of swaps i keep making. Except for cox.

Sean

My preferred option is 5-1-2, but could change to 4-1-3 or 5-0-3 to free up some cash, depending on how many forward and back rookies are named round 1.

mick

3-7… Should make for an interesting / nailbiting start!!!

Matt

im 4-1-3, counting Beams as a Premo. Would love to get more rookies in there, but just cant bring myself to cut any of the Premos or Dale Thomas.

WombatsFC

Hi Woofa,
ATMO I'm going with 4 + Beams & Daisy and 2 rookies. One of the 4 is a DPP premium defender and I'll throw him back into defense at the expense of a rookie if more than 2 mid rookies play a full game.

I think it's suicide to play 3 or more rookies in the mid; high sub probability and even without the vest I seriously doubt that any of them will score over 80.
I reckon coaches will be better served by slotting in a sub 300k on field ruck like Sinclair and putting the money into upgrading something in the middle.

Dools

Mate I'm running as M 5 Daisey, Polec, Ellis and Dunstan. Of the 4 named Dunstan (Man -Child exceptional player for 1 so young) 3 are ex-players with a hugh potential Polec from the vison I saw LOCK, Ellis is my Punt but from the West they love him on the side I have M.Crouch I know AL do not normally put 1st year pick in but Jeez he can play and with some injury worries there I think he is in Not happy with myself I went Aish but I Know he will play he is there if I get 1 wrong in the field and I'm off JPK went back to DelSanto Man he was great off the backline and in the Mids gets tagged has a look and wooska releases some-one else. Keeper for me

THE SALTSHAKER

Yeah I got the same structure. Daisy and two rookies. Doesn't feel right, but I think we might have more options up fwd and back than we realise.

Fabian

I've got 4-1-3 with the 1 being Beams. Had 4-2-2 for most of the preseason with daisy as the other mid, but think I can still get decent output from a third rookie and use that spare cash to upgrade other lines without decent rookies

throttlefinger

Right now I'm at 3 prems, 2 mid & 3 rooks. Not sold on all the rooks but keeping Dunstan and a $117K on the bench for earning power. Beams could be considered a "4th" but technically he's not.

Comfortable with 3, although gives my stomach a bit of nerves. Mostly because the talent pool and costs are lower and higher respectively. That's my 2 cents, Twoof.

By the way, if you have room would love to have you join my league: 231330

taylorwoof

Thanks everyone for responding to my post, greatly appreciate it! This has given me more clarity on my final mid field structure. Itching for those Round 1 teams now!

Thanks for the league invitation Throttle, i'm in mate! (Silent_Achievers).

throttlefinger

Niiiiice!

And great post. These are the sort of discussions that helps us all.

Give It A Go

Hi TW,

Throttlefinger has a SC team up called the Throttledome if you want to jion the code is (231330)

rhino

Hey jock, love the cheat sheet, just wondering why no green for michie, any reasoning? Thanks

rhino

Thanks mate

Blazinup

Hey Jock, thoughts on Dean Towers??

Kev

Swans tough midfield to get into. Likely vest if named. No for me

Captain joc

Jock I think your gonna make me change my side now grrr

Jordan

tyson anyone??????

throttlefinger

Not at that price. Like him but there is other mid rooks who will earn the $100-150K faster, in my opinion. Aish is one of them.

SCaddict

He's still a strong consideration for me. May end up going with Michie instead and save a bit of coin but haven't made the final decision just yet.

Will wait and see how the overall rookie situation shapes up over the next two weekends and if I have some spare change left over may very well pick him.

WombatsFC

I have him Jordan.
I also have Foxtel and I have watched the Melb games a couple of times. IMO Michie is well behind Tyson for a place in the Dee's starting 22. Paul Roos love blokes who are hard at it and make multiple contests in a short period of time; Tyson does that and Michie doesn't.
The extra 50k will seem like a bargain when Michie spends the first 3 quarters each week on the pine (if he gets a game) and Tyson spends the whole game in the mid rotation.

To all aspiring supercoaches: Watch the NAB games before locking in midfield rookies and then look at the respective best 22 from last year and analyse who will be dropped to make way for your rookie. IMO Michie did not do enough to move ahead of Sam Blease

Fourbells

What are peoples thoughts on Lachie Whitfield Avg 127 during NAB series

WombatsFC

He will be one of the greats of his generation but is high risk for SC this year.

Jordan

I believe everyone is still discounting the strength of a guns and rookies midfield this year. As shown in the cheat sheet there are plenty of worthy rookies

THE SALTSHAKER

Yeah I'm in that same boat, what to do? With rookies being more expensive, gonna need more cash generated.

Jordan

polec or aish????????????????

J.K

thank you jock

SCaddict

Hey Jock then how come you have Polec in your team reveal and not Aish?? Can't find the extra $15K huh?

For surely you haven't changed your mind in the past 3 days ole son!

SCaddict

Definitely Polec for me Jordan. Actually think his JS is fairly golden already. Been one of Port's best in the pre-season and looks to be a big part of Hinkley's game plan this year.

Billy

Hey Jock haven't heard much about Shane Kersten? You said lock if named. Is he really any good?

Daz

polec/michie michie/aish or aish/polec

Leaning towards option 3.
Thoughts

zimmerbd

I'm going with 3 at this stage.

Crowls

Aish/Polec, questions over michie tog if gets a start.
More JS with the other 2

Bray

Hey guys just wondering if I could have some feedback on my team at this stage. Thanks.

DEF: J.Bartel S.Mitchell P.Hanely M.Suckling J.Webster L.Mcdonald. INT- M.Fuller, A.Georgiou

MIDS: G.Ablet, S.Pendulbery J.Selwood M.Barlow M.Murphy D.Thomas D.Tyson L.Dunstan INT- X.Ellis M.Crouch

RUC: B.Grundy A.Sandilands INT-D.Currie T.Nankervia

FWD: P.Dangerfield C.Wingard D.Zorko J.Caddy J.Kennedy-Harris J.Impey INT- S.Kersten M.Honeychurch.

I think that my foward line is pretty weak, would love some thoughts on how I can improve my lineup. Thanks heaps guys

Billy

Hey Bray, Your team looks ok but I will try and give a few suggestions for each position

Defence- I like your defence, it is pretty similar to most peoples but completely different to mine. If I was you I would maybe trade out Bartel for a cheeper premium someone around the $500,000 mark and then upgrade Fuller as I don't think that he will play round 1 and he has had no Nab Cup experience.

Midfield- This is the position which I think you need to change the most. Going Gazza, Selwood and Pendles is a bit to expensive and is a bit to much cash to use in the midfield and there are other options that are 100k less that will give you around the same output. For example Cotchin/Liberatone/JPK/Fyfe and then there is also Beams who is even cheeper and who is a lock for most teams.

Ruck- Your rucks are a bit risky IMO as Sandilands may not play every game and Grundy is only in his second year. If I was you I would switch out Grundy for someone like McEvoy/Jacobs/Lobbe/Pyke

Forward- I think you need to get another premium in your forward as it is lacking a bit. A good option would be Roughead or Martin as they are both consistent high scorers.

Besides all this I think you have a good team and you should do well this year.

-Billy

Bray

Thanks Billy, I’ve take your advice and swaped Bartel for Enright and Selwood for Cotchin. Now I have 160k or so, who do you think I should upraxe and for who.?
Thanks mate, best of luck to you this year .

enter the void

Just wondering about people’s thoughts on Tom Hawkins? I vaguely remember Jock was interested in him some time ago. He’s cheap and apparently is over his back issues. Slow NAB Cup but did well in their practice match. I realise key position players are always a worry, but he averaged 95 just 2 seasons ago, is capable of going large and if not for his dodgy back should have improved again last season.

THE SALTSHAKER

Nah stay away, will have 5 defenders on him.

Alex

There are a lot of gun rookies there jock!
What are the thoughts on Daisy Thomas is he still a lock or should I downgrade to a rookie?

SCaddict

Jock is not a Daisy fan and believes his ankle is stuffed which he may end up being right on.

However just like Sandi there is too much proven quality there to overlook at that amazing price so I'm taking the punt on him myself and wont be the lone ranger there!

Shiels and Savage are worthy alternatives for similar dosh but have their own risk factors.

Alex

Cheers! I think i might stick with him aswell.

THE SALTSHAKER

Can always burn a trade to a rookie if need be.

Mitch

Thoughts on Clay Cameron from gold coast?
Also Libba,Fyfe or Boak?

Danny

Can't go wrong with Libba.

SCaddict

Yes Libba hasn't put a foot wrong all pre-season and is begging to be selected.

Both Teen Wolf and Boak could be nice sleepers though and take their games to a new level in 2014.

Mitch

Also thoughts on bugg over suckling?

a noob

def – mitchell, Mcveigh, Bartel, suckling pig, Webster and Mcdonald – INT – Clurey and Georgiou
mid – Pendlebury, ablett, Murphy, Beams, michie, aish, Polec and Dunstan – INT – ellis and crouch (can upgrade michie into dale thomas ive needs be i have 250k in the kitty)
ruck – Lobbe and Sandi – INT – Thurlow and derickx
fwd – dangerfield, Roughy, Dixon, Parker, higgins, Rohan – INT – kennedy harris and impey

if sandi gets injured i can swap in Charlie Dixon for Thurlow.

please give me some words of wisdom. Negative and postive

Blueprime

Hale more reliable than Dixon and 39K cheaper.

Jordan

Buddy or dixon. Starting to slowly lean towards dixon because of ruc/fwd. Help?

SCaddict

It's a tough one. I just can't bring myself to pick Dixon as much as I'd like the ruck cover. Already have too many risky picks in my side as it is with Daisy, Sandi, Suckers, R. Shaw etc.

Can't see Buddy falling much more in price. Only question in my mind is whether he can return to elite output or just remain a solid premium scorer instead.

THE SALTSHAKER

More chance than Dixon. He's kicked 60+ goals the last 5 or 6 yrs.

Unsure

WHAT ABOUT SAMMY LLOYD!!! Injured, not going well, thought the mature age recruit at Richmond was a lock in our forward lines. An I in another universe, help Jock!!

Duncan

hey I need 3 out of Polec, Aish, Tyson & Ellis for M6-M8 spots thoughts?

throttlefinger

Polec, Aish and Ellis. Best values. Tyson too much. Will need to do much more than the other 3 to get his $100K in value. Not sure he's that much better.

Duncan

What do you Think would be a better option
Cotchin & 115K VS Pendlebury?

throttlefinger

What would you use the $115K for? I would lean on Pendles. The consistency and quality of SC scores are going to be worth it.

Duncan

Upgrades around elsewhere! But I don't have to worry anymore Pendles is locked And Loaded for M2

SCaddict

I haven't closed my mind to Tyson just yet. Although not currently in my team structure if I do need a third onfield mid rookie he may be the man I pick.

He's only $30K more than Aish so only has to average about 5pts more than him to generate the same cash return.

Tyson is an inside mid so is always going to be around the contest. Bit worried that some of Aish's touches may dry up as more an outside player in the games the Lions lose handily. And they do have that killer draw. Both are rising stars though.

Agree with you on Ellis and Polec and they are already well locked away.

throttlefinger

Very good points, SCaddict. Wobbling back and forth on the price.

Duncan

Tyson or Aish is gonna Be a tough decision It will Rely on whether I want My D3 F3
Quick Question
I have $984,800
Should I have Buddy and Houli Leaving me 3.5K and Not be able to Upgrade Aish to Tyson
Or
Should I have Gunston/Pavlich and Enright Leaving me with a minimum of 30.7K and Be able to Upgrade Aish to Tyson?
Thoughts

Duncan

Thanks TF I was Thinking Tyson is in the Same Boat as Jack Martin! Too Exepnsive

Duncan

Thoughts I need D3 AND F3 For 984,900
Any Thoughts? on who I should grab?

Birdman

With the Colingwood ruck a bit light on what are your thoughts on Jesse White as a POD in the forward line? Could he get some minutes in the middle along with a few goals??

SCaddict

Reckon he's in for a nice year. There are probably a few forwards I would prefer over him for the money but certainly not the worst POD idea I've seen.

Birdman

Yes he is probably about 50K over where I would like!! Im thinking he could play a Q.Lynch type role only much better and with Cloke getting the key defenders he might get a free run early on! Lynchs price grew last year until injuries started to hurt.

SCtragic

What's the communities thoughts on Sam Lloyd from Richmond?

daryl_prasad

He is OK for what he is…12 disposals in NAB Challenge.

SCaddict

Another handy cheat sheet Jock. In addition to all the obvious picks I've got my eye firmly on young McDonough. If he gets named for Rd1 and not given the green vest I will likely jump on.

Fortunately the Tiges are one of the first up and play before Port as Impey is the other likely target for that bench spot with JKH locked away.

tezza

I think everyone has forgotten about two of last years guns. Harley Bennell and Chad Wingard. Bennell was scoring more points than the great Gary Ablett late last season !!!! Wingard was carrying the Port midfield.
The other one to consider is Elliot Yeo for your defence. Oh forgot what about Adam Treloar?

SCaddict

I wish Yeo was $50K cheaper as I'd probably squeeze him in tezza. Plenty of talent there but not sure he's proven quite enough to me just yet to warrant handing over $330K for.

Have Suckling, R.Shaw and Webster as slightly better value options right now but perhaps Yeo will really shine this season. Only likely to improve in 2014 that's for sure.

WombatsFC

I aint gonna work my way through 24,000 possible player combinations for your two positions.

Duncan

Already have Higgins and Caddy

Philthy

Going for overall win – Enright and Gunston

Going for league wins – Enright and Rioli

Duncan

Overall I Think Maybe Enright Pavlich or Malceski Buddy

throttlefinger

Drats! Got this too late. All full.

SCaddict

Hey mate why don't you put up a league code of your own? I'm sure it would be pretty popular here. I'd happily join as I'm sure would many others.

throttlefinger

Good idea, SCaddict. I'll post it with the podcast.

SCaddict

Awesome! I'll keep an eye out for it as I'm sure it will fill up even quicker than mine!

throttlefinger

Very seriously doubt that! But would definitely enjoy being in the same league with such an SC-esteemed player as yourself.

Which place is giving you the most headaches? Was rucks. Now trying to make the Def line work with McD at D6 has made my mind volcanic.

throttlefinger

Here ya go: 231330

Welcome to the Throttledome!

Give It A Go

Good on ya, I've joined the Throttledome.

throttlefinger

Sweeeeeeet! Thanks Give It!

Hay TF,

Have an issue with my D4, which def do you recon will be best as a POD, Suckling, Grimes, Everitt, Tuohy or Bugg or another welcome?

throttlefinger

You and me both, brother. Suckling seems the surest pick. And the most expensive. I'm tinkering with Watson and Webster as my D4-5. Making McD the D6 given the lack of rook defenders has made me take chances on them rather than Clurey and Camerson as D6 (which I may do if they don't grab the vest)

Not very helpful, GIAG. But this is may biggest problem at the moment too

SCdonkey

Totally agree Def is where most people will take risk this season. With shortage of good rookies we are force to take a punt/pick with higher price to fill in that D5 positon.

Give It A Go

Thanks, still a few days to go for another change around, can't wait for the next installment of JR and the boys, they get ya thinking??????????

throttlefinger

Waiting with coffee-d breath. Sure they will deliver some gold.

SCaddict

Brilliant! I'm in too.

18 men enter 1 man leaves….with Supercoach glory!

SCdonkey

And the Donkey have joined. Are we there yet?

throttlefinger

Sweeeeeet!

SCdonkey

I have one more slot. Will also keep an eye out for it TF

Derek

B Matera or Caddy?

I watched Matera play a few games last year and when he is on he does some unbelievable things.

@Cameron23098087

Caddy will be playing in the guts, so he's probably more likely to score consistently, Matera might get you some big ones, but dont think they are worth the low scores he will pull
