Thinking im a bit light down back let me know what you think !! Thanks ! 🙂

    I N Pieman · 01/04/2015 at 13:49

    The job security of the defender rookies is almost non existent. Except for Nathan brown who’s not going to blow the roof off the joint. I’d remove TBC & grab a mid pricer defender. Good luck

tom · 01/04/2015 at 13:41

thoughts??

Simpson, Shaw, Newnes, Goodes, Brown, Saad (hamling, mcintosh)

Ablett, Fyfe, Selwood, JPK, Parker, Wallis, Cripps, CEY (heeney, touk, anderson)

Goldstein, Maric (brooksby)

Gray, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark, Hogan (lamb, lambert)

    I N Pieman · 01/04/2015 at 13:54

    Wallis Tom. Big ball. If he’s removed from tagging could be an awesome pick. Touk Miller good pick. Brown on the ground. Nup. Bench him.

      tom · 01/04/2015 at 13:58

      Cheers Pieman! Do you think I should get another midpricer into my defence for Brown? Im looking at Geary/Kolo but dont know if I should bother

        I N Pieman · 01/04/2015 at 14:02

        If a couple of your rookie defenders get dropped your in strife. Fwd rooks have much better JS. I like KK he’s a gun.

          tom · 01/04/2015 at 14:06

          yeah, thats what I am worried about. What type of structure are you going for this year in defense?

          I N Pieman · 01/04/2015 at 14:08

          In defence 2 big boys 3 underpriced mid pricers (I hope) 3 rooks.

    matt · 01/04/2015 at 19:25

    i believe your backline is a little fragile, one more midpricer maybe wallis for a rookie then upgrade a back rookie

I N Pieman · 01/04/2015 at 13:45

Nice Vid Lek. You might want to hit the weight room & start working on some guns. If you want to fast track the process you know the team to call.

    MASO · 01/04/2015 at 15:22

    collingwood ? 😛

      Dools · 01/04/2015 at 15:50

      Hahahahahahahahahahha Owned INP

      Classic!!! High cal.diet and steaks. Lots and lots of steak

        I N Pieman · 01/04/2015 at 16:22

        Leefe & Thomas will need to make a living somehow lol

    LEKD0G · 01/04/2015 at 16:29

    I'm a warrior of the mind not the body Pie haha

      I N Pieman · 01/04/2015 at 18:00

      Nice. I like it Lek. Was the mo inspired by Jock?

Josh · 01/04/2015 at 13:46

guys i need some help! my team atm is
d: Shaw, Kelly, Newnes, Higgins, Goodes, McIntosh (Hamling, Saad)
m: ablett, fyfe, selwood, watson, griffen, cripps, heeney, ellis-yolmen (c smith, miller, krakouer)
r: maric, dogdog (cox)
f: gray, dusty, swan, bellchambers, salem, clark (hogan, lambert)

i would like to take out higgins for hibberd, would you guys go for
higgins, watson, selwood, gray
or
hibberd, dangerfield, JPK, bartel

thanks guys

    I N Pieman · 01/04/2015 at 14:05

    If you looking for a durable mid Watson is not the answer. His number of games & average is declining since his Brownlow year. I don’t like Higgins. Be carful with Hibberrd dodgy hammies go twang lots.

      Morse · 01/04/2015 at 14:57

      Totally agree Pieman.

      Looking at Watsons last year he averaged 106 but only hit 90+ points 73% of the time and 100+ points 53% of the time. Take out his scores after returning from injury (as he didn't score 100+ points at all after injury) and he hit 90+ 82% of the time and 100+ 73% of the time.

      Even going back to his best year (BL medal in 2012), he scored 90+ 91% of the time and 100+ 77% of the time meaning he had a lower ave than say Fyfe overall and he had 5 games under 100 points whereas Fyfe only had 2 last year.

      I know Fyfe is $82K more than Watson but he will likely score 400+ more total points over the year.

      Leave Watson out imo, no longer as appealing as he once was.

    Rick · 01/04/2015 at 14:09

    I would go higgins, watson, JPK and bartel. Hyrbrid between the two

      tom · 01/04/2015 at 14:11

      I would go the second one.

      I just can not trust Higgins the burn man

    Gollyontong · 01/04/2015 at 20:27

    Dont second guess yourself. All are viable options, and if it was as simple was going on previous stats, we would all be champs.

KJU FC · 01/04/2015 at 13:47

Mitch Wallis is doing a QandA on the doggies website today and he should answer what role he will play this year.

If he says he definitely wont play a tagging role he is locked into my side.

    Redgumwon · 01/04/2015 at 14:41

    Lock as well at M6

Browny · 01/04/2015 at 13:50

Who should I go with out of Griffen and Wines? I'm thinking Griffen just because GWS has an easier draw, but Wines could be a bit more durable throughout the year. Thoughts?

    Just_Genetics · 01/04/2015 at 20:47

    Griffen all the way in the final H&A round of last season he scored whopping 188 points and then scoring 142 in his first appearance against Gold Coast in the NAB Challenge. id say he should be a lock in most teams.

Borko · 01/04/2015 at 13:51

Nicnat v Minson as my r2 behind Goldy

    Rick Grimes · 01/04/2015 at 14:17

    Minson a safer option, but I think Nicnat has the higher upside. If you haven't taken many risks across the rest of the team, maybe worth a punt.

    harry · 01/04/2015 at 15:16

    Nic Nat, and not even close

    Just_Genetics · 01/04/2015 at 20:50

    when Nic nat was r1 at westcoast he averaged 120 points per game. he should do the same this year being the number 1 ruck.

r2d2 · 01/04/2015 at 13:53

Currently have both wines and danger in my team, as well as swallow ! Is this a bad thing ?

    r2d2 · 01/04/2015 at 13:54

    Gaz and Pendles m1 and 2

      Rick Grimes · 01/04/2015 at 14:21

      Possibly a premo short. Question mark on Danger, but he'll give you some big returns (Sloane more consistent). Wines is a gun and I dearly want to include him in my own side. Swallow I'm not as sold on, don't see as big an upside.

        r2d2 · 01/04/2015 at 15:45

        Swallow up to griffen or jpk?

          Luviboy1 · 01/04/2015 at 16:41

          I'd go Swallow up to Parker. But out of them two Griffo, if you already have GAJ and Pendles.

Give It A Go · 01/04/2015 at 14:10

On another note will anyone go Ess players now? Would Hibs be a lock?

    Crowmagnon · 01/04/2015 at 19:28

    seriously considering him.

jim · 01/04/2015 at 14:10

Pick 1 out of:

Ibbo
Geary
Hunt
Hendo
Pearce
WhiteX

    Redgumwon · 01/04/2015 at 14:42

    Henderson

    Sarah · 01/04/2015 at 15:06

    Geary

    Harry · 01/04/2015 at 15:27

    role a dice, assign a number for each player, whatever number it lands on go with it. If they all play, should do about the same

Rick Grimes · 01/04/2015 at 14:15

If you could please help me out with conundrum I would mighty appreciative:

Option 1) Go Mummy and Goldie in rucks and play 3 rookies in D (Goodes at 4)
Option 2 Go Mummy and TBC in rucks and go deeper in D (Newnes at 4)

I'm running GnR but the D has me worried. Just wish I could see into TBC future, could be worth $50k…

    John · 01/04/2015 at 14:42

    In the same boat as you, but think option 1 may work out,
    someone will pop up, because i just cant justify the midpricers in defence,
    let me know which way you decide, good luck mate!

    Redgumwon · 01/04/2015 at 14:42

    You've answered your own question. Go with your gut and beef up defence

Jordan · 01/04/2015 at 14:53

Sorry to ask but does anyone know what the formula is to know how much a player is priced to average?

Cheers

    Samuel · 01/04/2015 at 15:09

    approximately $5,375 per SC point

Brillsy21 · 01/04/2015 at 15:04

Wallis or Rich??

    Redgumwon · 01/04/2015 at 15:08

    Wallis

    jack · 01/04/2015 at 15:24

    wells

    Tony · 01/04/2015 at 15:49

    Wells

gabe · 01/04/2015 at 15:09

assuming you have supercoach gold – check his break even

Samuel · 01/04/2015 at 15:12

Dane Swan is 31 years old now and averaged 86.4 last year. His NAB average was 75.5 from 2 games. Is anyone else not sold on him?

    Redgumwon · 01/04/2015 at 15:19

    He played most of the year with injury. Most have Swannie in there sides. So why not go with him and if he doesn't fire use him for an upward trade? At the price he is you really can't go wrong and if he fires you've got a scoring machine

    Luviboy1 · 01/04/2015 at 15:20

    He was disinterested in the NAB. I think he'll have a decent year.

    Harry · 01/04/2015 at 15:22

    Also Collingwood don't expect him to be fully fit until approximatlely round 6. Aswell as playing the same role in the nab cup as he did last season, it would be extremely risky to pick him.

    jason · 01/04/2015 at 15:28

    pick him will avg 95 minimum more of a risk not having him

    Samuel · 01/04/2015 at 15:51

    What about Bartel? is he safer

      Harry · 01/04/2015 at 16:10

      Bartel's looked great so far. Almost a certainty he'll be top 6 forward and average over 100, can't say the same about swan

jack · 01/04/2015 at 15:23

    Crowls · 01/04/2015 at 15:47

    got like it as very similar to mine in structure

David · 01/04/2015 at 15:36

Deliberately haven't posted a team or played around with the chopping and changing over the last few months…..just watched, listened and tried to absorb all the wisdom from these pages and from my own research……with the final week upon us I will do my own TEAM REVEAL"…..please let me know your thoughts…

BEAGLIEBOY UNITED F.C
Backs: Murphy, Hurn Taylor Broadbent Geary Whitecross (Saad, McIntosh)

Mids: Ablett Pendlebury Fyffe Martin Griffen Newton Cripps Ellis-yolmen (Cockatoo, Anderson Heeney)

Rucks: Goldstein Bellchambers (Reed)

Fwds: Gray Franklin Swan Salem Clark Hogan (Lamb Lambert)

I know that Martin should be a fwd….but I wanted as many cash cows there as possible……I know that Bellchambers is a huge risk, but if he can string 5-6 games together at the start he will be the first out and I will pick who is travelling best out of Maric, Jacobs Minson NicNat etc

    David · 01/04/2015 at 15:57

    …..Martin will move fwd at first upgrade…..

    SCaddict · 01/04/2015 at 16:03

    Wow you're definitely in contention for the POD backline of the year award.

    No doubt you would only lock in WhiteX if he gets a game on Easter Monday which is probably unlikely to happen at this stage unless you've heard something that I haven't.

    Your other lines are much more conventional although the jury is still out for me on whether Newton is a good pick for the money. Hopefully he turns out to be more a Dom Tyson than a Viv Michie circa 2014.

    Buddy is an interesting selection and could really carve up a match underdone Bombers defence this weekend. I just wish he had a full preseason under his belt and there wasn't rain forecast at ANZ this Saturday.

      David · 01/04/2015 at 17:34

      yeah….WhiteX will probably be moved on once teams are announced….On Newton, I have no doubt he will be an absolute gun….Being a Port man I have watched him play for the Magpies in the SANFL week in week out and collect thirty plus posses and 10 tackles most weeks….a real hard nut who will be a champ….spitting chips Port couldnt keep him….next year Cornes will be gone and that spot was his for the next decade…..jump on him I reckon.

    Luviboy1 · 01/04/2015 at 16:39

    Love your backline. Id move Martin forward and upgrade Belly, but you've already stated your intentions. Overall pretty solid side. Wish you all the best.

Dr Spock · 01/04/2015 at 15:36

Judd or Scooter Selwood?

    SCaddict · 01/04/2015 at 15:54

    I like Scooter a little more myself as I think he generate more cash than Juddy but neither are season long keepers but only stepping stones to elites I'd say.

    Both are good picks if you need to slot in a midfield midpricer and I would also add Wells and potentially Rich to this category too.

      Dr Spock · 01/04/2015 at 17:00

      Does anyone know what the rough formula is for working out potential price rises after X number of rounds?

      I’m thinking Selwood can average 105-110, whilst Wells maybe 95 and Rich 90, but not sure who will rise the most by the time the byes come around. Also thinking there’s a sneaky chance I can keep Selwood at M8.

        SCaddict · 01/04/2015 at 20:10

        The price change formula is basically this Dr Spock:

        New_Price = 3/4 * Old_Price plus 1/4 * Recent_Market_Value

        where Recent_Market_Value = $5,375 (approx) * Average_Points_In_Last_Three_Games

        It's not exact as all players prices are scaled to fit within the global salary cap each round but I reckon it's close enough.

        So just whack this into Excel and you can do your own price change calculations per round.

        If Scooter averages over 100 trust me you'll be laughing all the way to the bank.

          Dr Spock · 01/04/2015 at 20:29

          Thanks heaps SCaddict, much appreciated 🙂

      Dr Spock · 01/04/2015 at 17:02

      … It’s basically coming down to Selwood at M6 and Leuenberger at R2 (his per minute scores in NAB were good IMHO) OR Rich/Wells and Naitanui at the same positions

    Donald · 01/04/2015 at 16:04

    maybe look for a wells or rich instead,similar scores, save money

Patch · 01/04/2015 at 15:49

Love the video Lek. Brilliant as always. Hard to say what the videos should do without knowing what's already getting done each week.

r2d2 · 01/04/2015 at 15:57

Anyone thinking of running with lids and dusty ?

    SCaddict · 01/04/2015 at 16:51

    Reckon it's doable but a slight Lids's durability concern tips a Bartel inclusion instead for me.

Jack · 01/04/2015 at 16:01

Higgins or lumumba

Parker or boak

    Tulendeena · 01/04/2015 at 16:01

    Lumumba and Parker

bob · 01/04/2015 at 16:07

Could i please have some help with my team its looking something like this:
DEF: H Shaw, Newnes, Lumbumba, koladshnij, goodes, saad. (oxley, mcintosh)
MIDS: Fyfe, parker, heppell, griffen, j steven, rich, cripps, CEY (heeney, anderson, t miller)
Rucks: Goldy, minson (obrien)
FWDS: Gray, dusty, swan, bontempelli, clarke , salem (hogan, lambert)

What do you guys think and why is no one considering d heppel for their teams?

    SCaddict · 01/04/2015 at 16:18

    If HepD still had his 2013 DPP eligibility he'd be in a lot of backlines but it's a bit tough to squeeze him in as a pure midfielder much like say a McVeigh.

    Bombers are quite an unknown quantity with no preseason competition to speak of and have a punishing opening fortnight @Sydney and v Hawks so that would put many off starting with Dons players as Lekdog so eloquently stated in his vid.

    But in general I reckon you are running with a very solid side there Bob.

Adrian · 01/04/2015 at 16:13

Is anybody running with a team that has dyson heppell havn't seen him in any recntly?? thoughts

    Stevo · 01/04/2015 at 16:23

    Read above, but IMO he is a nice POD, young gun, but will get tagged along with Watson

      matt · 01/04/2015 at 19:16

      believe hes a great pick, reckon the pressure on him and essendon has been lifted and now can unleash

Ethan · 01/04/2015 at 16:18

Jack Steven
was his 2013 season a fluke or is he seriously good

    Stevo · 01/04/2015 at 16:22

    He's a gun

Scarlo · 01/04/2015 at 16:19

A few quick questions before lockout
Sheed or newton ?
Goddard or Bartel ?
Maric or Naitanui ?
Gibson or johnson ?
Let me know what your thoughts are (:

    Stevo · 01/04/2015 at 16:21

    Hmmmm
    Sheed, Bartel, Maric, Gibbo

      Scarlo · 01/04/2015 at 16:27

      Thanks stevo ! Appreciate it buddy

        Stevo · 01/04/2015 at 16:28

        All good mate

David · 01/04/2015 at 16:21

Is it possible KK (AKA Thumper) could score simlar to Newnes?

I am really interested in taking a POD risk by leaving Newnes out. Saints stink.

Thoughts? Can someone talk me into this plz?

    Stevo · 01/04/2015 at 16:30

    I'm thinking the same thing. Bruyn said this in his article yesterday:
    'Newnes – Hype player of the preseason by far! A lock? I can’t see it. Not because he is a bad pick but simply because I don’t think he’ll be a top 5 defender. Isn’t cheap at all and plays for a poor side. Will feature in heaps of teams (mine included I’d say) but he isn’t David Swallow.'

    IMO he won't go up much in price, even if he does average 95 or above. That's only around 490k plus. But if you do pick him and he stuffs up, you really won't have to worry cause everyone's got him and they'll all worry too

      David · 01/04/2015 at 16:36

      Ok, so my rationale is, if I get someone cheaper like KK, and he gets 80-90's early on (which he should, Suns are a good team this year) and Newnes gets 90 – 100. I am losing a few points to everyone there but the value of my team is going up. If Newnes spuds it up when St Kilda get flogged then I have a huge win. I guess im finding hard to pick Newnes over KK, but so so many people are on him and i dont get it! Saints stink so hard.

    SCaddict · 01/04/2015 at 16:41

    While Newnes will be hugely popular he's one of the supposed must haves you could probably skip on and not get too badly burnt, however the penny falls, so long as you have an adequate replacement.

    I like Thumper's game a lot but will he just tread water in 2015 with the 2nd year blues like Zorko did??

    So if I was going to leave Newnes out I'd probably want to spend decent coin on an alternative such as a Hurn, Kelly or Taylor.

    Thumper certainly at D2 or maybe even D3 is probably leaving yourself a bit too exposed in defence imho.

Stevo · 01/04/2015 at 16:24

Anyone got a league almost full that needs someone to join?

adam · 01/04/2015 at 16:28

bob murphy and nic nat – 4,700 left
kade kol and goldstein – 26,700 left
back up ruck is TBC

    Luviboy1 · 01/04/2015 at 16:34

    2nd option is probably a tad safer. But if you're willing to take a risk go with 1.

      adam · 01/04/2015 at 19:13

      thanks mate 🙂

    Stevo · 01/04/2015 at 16:34

    KK and goldy

Glenn · 01/04/2015 at 16:30

Goldstein, Naitanui

Maric, Minson

Can’t decide which two to pick. Thoughts?

    Luviboy1 · 01/04/2015 at 16:32

    Goldy and Minson 🙂

    Nah, but if I had to pick number 1.

    matt · 01/04/2015 at 19:21

    more upside if number 1 works (Nic Nat goes 120) and goldy does what goldy does
    but safer bet is number 2, like minson should average 100 and maric should go 105-110

Adrian · 01/04/2015 at 16:39

Is anybody running with a team that has dyson heppell havn't seen him in any recntly?? thoughts

    Motsy · 01/04/2015 at 16:41

    I want him in badly and am scared he will be a corrective trade against Dangerfield at the moment.
    I said at the end of last year, and have though all summer long that this will be Dyson's break-out year in to supercoach elitehood.

    Then ASADA and his minor injury came along and my plums shrunk.

    I will regret it I'm sure.

      Phil · 01/04/2015 at 17:37

      I've always likened him to Pendles (pretty much coz I love the way Pendles plays) and hoped that he would reach those elite hood heights. For the record Heppell averaged 106 (last year) in his 4th year which was the same as Pendles. Pendles then went 110 before entering the 120's. So this would suggest Hepps 1 more year away.
      Wines has a similar trend to Selwood and would also been 1 more year away if it continues.

      Of course this could all be circumstantial and totally irrelevant so take out of it what you will.

        matt · 01/04/2015 at 19:23

        I reckon Heppell could go 110-115, so between 10-15 best mids, which youd be happy at the end of the year as M7 or 8

Motsy · 01/04/2015 at 16:43

What are the communities thoughts on Krakouer vs Steele?
Who will make money first and get a run?

Is it worth jumping on one now for a dual mid/fwd swingset with lambert to allow loopholes in both lines for the best rook scores?

Jakey · 01/04/2015 at 16:45

Buddy or martin ??
Thinking less teams will have buddy and he may have more upside ? 🙂

    Luviboy1 · 01/04/2015 at 16:49

    Hes gonna score 15,000 points against Essendon on Saturday. Could be a good enough reason to select him over Dusty.

matt · 01/04/2015 at 16:46

Mitch wallis has just said hes not going to be tagging this year is this a good reason to pick him up?

    gordo · 01/04/2015 at 18:09

    i currently have him in my side as a stepping stone to gaz

james · 01/04/2015 at 16:48

whos the best options out of dangerfield, wines, cotchin, lewis, heppell, watson and b gibbs?

    Lewis is the only one of that bunch in my side although you could mount an argument for picking any of those stars really.

    But for me just have a look at Jordo's scores from the back half of 2014, and much like Parker too, I reckon that bodes very well for 2015.

    Luviboy1 · 01/04/2015 at 17:00

    In order: Lewis, Wines, Danger, Heppell, Watson, Gibbsy, Cotchin.

Rick · 01/04/2015 at 16:56

I need a view on my team

Def: Shaw, Newnes, Lumumba,Higgins,Goodes,Saad/ Goddard, Mcintosh

Mid: Fyfe, Sloane, Sidebottom, Parker, Wines, Griffen, S. Mitchell, Cripps/ Vananberg, Yoleman, Lambert

Rucks: Leuenberger, Bellchambers

Forwards: Bartel, Goddard, Swan, Salem, Clark, Hogan/ Lamb, Caleb

Reason for this team: Everyones defence is a bit risky this year so I have decided to go with Shaw who should average over 100. Newns who is a lock. I reckon Lumumba will definitely go up in price and bump up his average with his new club and new role. Same with higgins. Goodes will play a vital role in WB with the loss of liberatore and saad is just a playing rookie.

Mid: Ive tried to go with a lot of POD picks in my midfield who I reckon WONT attract the tag. Fyfe will obviously get the tag but his score output is to much to ignore. Sloane wont get a hard tag with dangerfield in their. Sidebottom wont get a hard tag with pendlebury in their. Same with Parker and Wines. Griffen is a lock no matter what. S.mitchell is a fallen premium. Lets not forget that this man was over 600k at the start of 2014 and then I have cripps.

The rucks is where I am most skeptical. I do not worry about leuenbergers performance in the nab cup, he will and should average 85+ if not 95+. Bellchambers is obviously going to be the number 1 ruck and should DEFINITELY average 80+ and if were lucky 90+. My plan is to get a keeper in one of them, and to trade the other one out by either downgrading someone OR by downgrading the ruckman to a returning Kreuzer in round 4.

Forward: Bartel, Goddard…… Do I really have to say anything? Swan is a fallen premium. LOCK. Then salem, clark and hogan.

I would really love some suggestions on this team and some pointers. I am confident in lumumba and higgins so dont even attempt on swaying me away from them.
Cheers 🙂

    Agreed on Leuey, his per minute in NAB was solid enough for me. Haven’t seen enough of Bellchambers so speculative pick, would prefer maybe a premo ruck instead? (Although I reckon with new rules we’re paying overs for most rucks and expect many to drop in value). Looking at your team you must have a bit of spare cash?

Luviboy1 · 01/04/2015 at 17:01

Need a D3/D4 Player that is under 453,000 and isnt Taylor or Newnes. GO!

    Rick · 01/04/2015 at 17:09

    Lumumba, Higgins

    Dr Spock · 01/04/2015 at 17:22

    Ibbotson, KK or Geary maybe if it’s D4? Higgins for D3 I reckon, Lumumba will get attention in season proper.

    Keg · 01/04/2015 at 19:31

    KK and pocket the cash

Bonters · 01/04/2015 at 17:29

Totally disagree on the Essendon warning.

Their lack of NAB games will make them even more raring to go for Round 1. This, combined with the not guilty verdict, should really inspire some emotion and strong performances, and I reckon they're even a chance to beat Sydney Round 1.

    matt · 01/04/2015 at 19:24

    honorable loss

Pete · 01/04/2015 at 17:31

Beams or J Lewis?

    Keg · 01/04/2015 at 19:28

    I’ve gone Lewis. Reckon he will kill it this year and can go HUGE!

      eatemalive · 01/04/2015 at 19:53

      agree

    Harry · 01/04/2015 at 20:16

Lambert named as an emergency.
Gets me thinking what r people's stance on picking rookies not playing rd 1??
Like to know the communities thoughts.

    kevwal · 01/04/2015 at 19:28

    My thought's, if a rookie is picked to play, on the field, round 1, pick them. A non-playing rookie is a non-money maker. They can sit on the bench, but rookies are there for one thing and one thing only, making money.

Keg · 01/04/2015 at 19:25

Guys, can I get some help please!

Team at the moment

Gibbo, newnes, lumumba, KK, Goodes, saad (mcintosh, brown)

Gaz, pendles, Fyfe, selwood, Lewis, Cripps, v’berg, Ellis-y (heeney, miller, lambert *not playing i know**)

Goldy, Maric (cox)

Gray, Martin, swan, Salem, Clarke, steele (hogan, Lonie)

HOWEVER::::

IF I downgrade Gibson to a rookie (say Oxley as bench cover) I can upgrade a mis rookie (eg heeney) to griffin
OR- even more adventurous, I also downgrade maric to Nic nat and I can have Parker as M6

Have I gone completely insane????

Please help!!!!

i was wondering what people thought of my team as it stands
defence – shaw , newnes , lumumba . goodes . brown . saad (oxley , mcintosh)
midfield – pendles . fyfe. selwood. parker . boak. griffen . cripps. eliis yolman (heeny , vander .miller )
rucks – goldy . nic nat (read )
forwards – bartel . martin . swan. salem . clark . lamb (hogan . lambert)
( 118k left to spend )
i am not sure about read. i also dont know if i should stay with bartel or get gray.

    Paddy · 01/04/2015 at 23:02

    Good side, not much wrong with it. One option I'd maybe consider is downgrade one of Parker, Boak or Griffen to a rookie (I don't know if all 3 will be in the top 6-10 midfielders at end of season. Maybe upgrade Goodes to Higgins and then get Gray.
    I was in a similar conundrum, I had Goddard for my F1, and just tonight I upgraded Goddard to Gray.

    Also if anyone is interested, 4 spots left.

    look into researching your rookies
    your missing some of the essentials

    Paddy · 01/04/2015 at 23:08

    Midfield is ok for the premiums.

    Your backline is weak and you need to get rid of Sharenberg, he has a knee injury and won't be back until late in the season (if at all). Look at McIntosh, Hamling, Saad for rookies in your defense. I'd also look at upgrading a couple of your key backs for some guys a bit more reliable.
    Forward line, I'd look at getting rid of Laverde (not sure if he will be in R1) and Membrey, and look at Clarke and Lonie (if named).
