POLL: $500K+ Midfield selections

Published by Lekdog on

MIDS 400K

 

G’day community!

It’s time to talk business; it’s time to talk midfield. The midfield is our fantasy engine room and it’s responsible for a large portion of our points, but whom will we be selecting?

Do we go big and grab four $600K+ players and never think about it again? Do we grab blokes around $500K who might have had a slow year in 2015, hoping they can bounce back? Or do we look to find this year’s breakout player?

In a year where most teams will have the same blokes who have been reduced in price such as Libba, Jaeger-Bomb or Crouch, our $500K+ selections are incredibly important.

So who are we selecting community?

REMEMBER – get your mates together and plan to visit your local venue during Round 1 for the first batch of COACHKINGS contests folks – venues are signing on left right and centre.. bung your email address in the form below to find our more, and have a gander and Jock and I in the CoachKings trailer below!





Which of these $500K+ MID options will you select this season?

Treloar, dangerfield, priddis, hanneberry, beams

James

danger is $647,00 fyi lads

ill be taking (at this stage) danger, pendles, ablett, sloane, rocky

West

Sneaky chance of Jack Steven making his way into my team. Looks like he is in for a big one this year

HOLLA

Like

Phil

14 games at Etihad and 3 at MCG. Barely leaves Melbourne. Definitely in.

Jimmy

Thoughts On Patrick Cripps this year Jock?

CarlaShirly

Cripps the better option to Wines I reckon

LuskinStar

At 500K+ you need to be a keeper. A midfield keeper should at least average 110. Cripps needs to lift his average by 14. I cant find a logical argument for such a big increase.

CarlaShirley

Danger, Ablett, Pendles a must
Rockliff, Sloan, Beams, Priddis, Fyfe will be next tier and hard to pick who will score better out of Rock n beams

Treloar not getting mentioned much so far too risky?

Jimi

You could just about flip a coin, but I'd just go Rock because he's cheaper

Jimi

Treloar just a bit too close to 600k, hard to squeeze in if you already have 3 600k MIDS.

Kev

I’m put off by his lack of preseason

Stirlsy

He has been doing the work just running str8 lines Kev, i'v got him in because I can't fit Pendles in at the moment.
Not to worried about Treloar's fitness if he lines up Rnd 1 ill probably go with him as a POD haven't seen him in to many teams and think he will get more freedom at Pie land then he did at GWS.

HOLLA

Sidey is a better pick i promise you. And cheaper.

Jimi

Fyfe (if fit), Pendles, Gaz, Rockliff and 1 of (Prestia, Adams or Wines

What are the community's thoughts on Prestia, Adams and Wines?

hedski

Like Adams and Wines. Have t watch Prestia early but he’s a little bull.

'Don't Blush Babby'

Thoughts on Mitch Duncan ,just under 500k, started very well last until he got injured.

hedski

Love him blushy being a cats man. Massive talent and great pod

Dan

Can see him playing a huge attacking wing role with better contested players around him, prefers to kick, loves a goal and has elite efficiency, could seem him knocking out Hannerbury like numbers.

BIG watch on him through pre-season

hedski

Danger Gaz Rocky Parker Adams Libba + rooks

Tomahawk

Libya at M6!!?? Wowee.

hedski

Yeah why not. Where are you stickin him tomahawk?

Derek

That is where he should be, unless you are going with JOM and/Crouch

I have Danger, Pendlebury, Ablett, Jpk, Rocky, Libba +rookies

hedski

I’ve gone cold on jom/crouch unless swayed before round 1

Tomahawk

M5 currently just want to give myself as much scope for picking up the best players at their cheapest. But still early doors. Now i feel naked 😉

hedski

Ha ha. Had him there when considering jom/crouch. Could slide back there yet.

bingobronson

Hey there fellas, excited for the new season!

Let me know what you all think of my layout, of course rookies are up to changing but im open to any suggestions!

A little too risky, dont mind having a defence under 500?

DEF: KK, Yeo, Bartel, BSmith, Brown, Bonner (Hartley, Broad)

MID: God, Shiel, Rocky, TAdams, Cripps, Libba, BCrouch (Jansen, Freeman, Menegola)

RUC: Mummy, Lobbe (Chol)

FWD: Chops, Dahl, Barlow, Zorko, Kerridge, Petracca (Summer, Kommer)

Appreciate it 🙂

Kev

Nice, bingo. Can’t fault it. You’re one short in the mids

Titan

Nice
Similar to the way ive set my team up
But ive gone with a bit more money spent in the mids over the forwards

Grant Lewis

No mid fwd .link in mids

Mac

Ablett, Pendles, JPK, Rockliff, Adams

TJM

I like Adams but is he going to be a top 10 mid at the end of the year? At this stage my top 10 is:

Danger, Fyfe, Ablett, Pendles, Priddis, Beams, Rockliff, JPK, Hanners, Mundy/Gray

Tomahawk

Agreed. There's not much point in picking Adams if he's not in the Top 8-10 mids. It's a stagnate pick. Same as Parker really. And Wines. Hasn't Selwood fallen? Not considered in your top 10?

TJM

Yes Selwood has fallen, but at this stage his foot injury is a concern, he had surgery and the club didn't want it to get out in the media. That and Danger taking some of his points at this stage.

Jimi

Does that mean you're just running a hardcore gun's and rookies strategy? There's only so many top 10 mids you can squeeze into a starting team.

TJM

At this stage yes, except I'm picking Shiel as a value pick as I see him improving this season. My current mid is Pendles, Ablett, Rockliff, JPK and Shiel

hedski

Had shiel start of last year impressive, running with toby fwds and heater def atm

Jimi

I normally run that strategy, but with Libba/Crouch/JOM/Polec/Lobbe priced the way they are and such a dearth of reliable premium defenders I've drifted.

Derek

I'd have Selwood in top 10 still. What he has done deserves to be still considered in the top 10.

I' also have Sloane about equal with Hannaberry.

Stiffy

Whats your team look like Derek?

Derek

At the moment my team is

KK, Bartel, Yeo, Smith, Brown, Hibberd (Rookies)

Danger, Ablett, Pendlebury, JPK, Rocky, Libba, Gresham, Petrecca (Keays, Phillips, rookie)

NicNat, Lobbe

Dusty, Zorko, Rioli, Buddy, Simpkin, Kerridge (rookies)

Stirlsy

GEEWIZ TJM have you got any money left??? A set and forget guts to start with. Lol

Stirlsy

TJM read that wrong, sorry.

hedski

I think adams and parker could explode this year with jpk/hanners and dependles/sidey taking attention from opposition. PODS.

TJM

Are Ablett, Danger, Pendles and Rocky all a must start with?

Derek

I prefer Fyfe over Danger. But he might start slow this year

TJM

I'm a bit concerned with what Ross said about him playing forward, I wont start with him but I will pick him up later in the year.

Titan

Fyfe said he doesnt want to play forward
And from the interview with robbo, i think he’ll play more mid and rest forward

Shaneo

Thoughts on my mids atm please ……. Pendles ,gaz,gray,rocky,wines,Libba , crouch ,Francis …… Bench – hopper, Jansen ,kerridge

Shaneo

See gray as a bit of a pod this year with mid status only …. Quite capable of 105-110 avg

Derek

Agree. I would have Gray over Wines.

Kahly

Nice work Lekky, Not settled on structure just yet but i"ll go in with a combination of these guys; backing Gibbs to bounce back this year……Ablett, Dependles, Priddis/Hannebery, Rockliff, Gibbs, Libba, Crouch/Jaegerbomb

King of harts

Slightly off topic but what’s people’s thoughts on hartung??? Reducing interchange, no more vest, running machine, high ceiling, sure to see more mid time with hawks eye for the future.

Alll signs point to break out yr

Slightly preferring him over injury prone crouch and still injured jom

Derek

I don’t think he will score that well. Hawks have Smith and Hill as thier outside runners, can’t see him getting much mid field time.

Even though he got vest a lot last year, when he came on he picked up a lot of east SC points. 80Sc type player imo.

I can see him under pressure for his place in team and I’m not convinced he is in their best 22

King of harts

I keep telling myself the same things but also in the back of my mind I see all the makings of a great supercoach player
I.think I crunched the numbers last week and his non vest average was around the 80s with a few 120 but a few like 60s

Something tells me I’ll be kicking myself when I leave him out for crouch and crouch breaks down round 2

King of harts

Although I definitely see him in there best 22 as the beat runner at hawks

Millsy

Easily in best 22, he’s my sneaky to improve his average out of sight.. Works hard. Fast and decent disposal won’t be sub affected.. Go for it!

Kev

Someone I hadn’t considered, King of harts. Cheers for bringing him up. He’s a good player and can certainly find the footy, but I share the same reservations as Derek. On the fringe of their best 22.

HOLLA

What about O’Rourke

King of harts

Personally think that hartung is well ahead of him
Played 18 games last yr and unlucky to not be a premiership player
Haven’t heard mich on o’Rourke, how is he priced??

Davo

What do you guys think of my midfield…version 1 of 1000

Fyfe, God, rocky, wines, Libba, Omeara, crouch, parish (Petracca, Hibberd, Morabito). Bench players subject to being named round 1.

Titan

I think you need another guy higher then libba

Derek

Mid price madness.

Jimi

Top 4 look good to me.

Those mid pricers are all returning from long term injury. I know they're tempting but I'd limit myself to 2 at most (hot tip: drop JOM

Unless Parish shows something very special during NAB I dare you say you'll find better rookie value elsewhere.

CoachDamo

I don't mind the mid-pricers, but 3 might be too many, especially consider that JOM probably won't be fit for Round 1.

Titan

Gday guys
Had a look at my mids to see how its looking
I was pretty happy
But i thought
What if i dropped a defender to upgrade my mids a little for a more safe scoring power
So i have
Pendles ablett jpk shiel rocky gibbs(hoping to bounce back) libba Parish
And rookies for the bench
Any thoughts would be great

Jimi

After reading through this what about this for a mid setup:

Pendles, GAZ, Grey, Rockliff, Cripps, Libba, Polec, rookie (rookie, rookie, rookie)

Eagling

Big problem with the poll, lads. I'm only allowed five selections when I currently have six: Fyfe, Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Ablett, Rockliff and Wines.

@t_woof

Dangerfield in so many teams.

I could be awfully wrong, but haven't even considered him due to the new club.

Anyone thinking similar? Wait and see how he scores, with possibility of being an upgrade target.

Jimi

Burned me in 2014, definite wait and see.

@t_woof

I know that feeling Jimi!

Titan

Yeah im the same with danger
But only because selwood struggling, so more pressure on him
I think the best cat mid to get is duncan

@t_woof

Joel Selwood will bounce back. He's too good not too.

Could be an outstanding unique selection this year.

Titan

Oh yeah he will no dought
But he will strat slow

holty

just be careful with the starting slow thought. last time he was underdone in 2014, he averaged 145 in his first 3 games. If he is fit for rd1, i will have to pick him at his price

throttlefinger

Same thinking Twoof. Cats have a more robust midfield than Crows so while he will do well, don't think he'll go off the chain as much.

Mac

Sam Grimley signed with the Dons, what price will he be?

Shezza

He’d have to be $123k mark I reckon. He is now my third ruck (assuming he is forward/ruck option)

Jackwatt$

Wouldn't pay any more for him, still probably needs a injury to McKernan or Daniher to crack the 22,so not sure if he's any better than Lowden as a pick

Bramigan

Pendles, Ablett, Priddis, Rocky, Libba, JOM, Parish, Petracca (Keays, Morabito, Mathieson)

BKW

Wanted to vote for 7 which included chopsticks and Dahl in forward line (poll only let’s you select five)

Other current selections are Danger, GAJ, Gray, Bont and Rocky

Shak

Love that Sam Mitchell's being overlooked by so many coaches! #1 for most diposals and average dispoals per game in 2015 and his lowest score of last season was an 86. Mitchell's like a fine wine and only gets better with age 🙂

Mac

With the game going to become more open this year, I doubt Mitchell will be able to get as much of the ball. He can't run. With less interchanges, the game will become more open and less rolling packs, which Mitchell thrives on by getting it in and out of there.

Derek

I had Sam from round 1 last year, started at $480k. He isnt a bargin this year.

He was frustrating to have last year, would be 100sc at 3/4 and would rest on the bench for most of the last quarter, so never got massive scores.

Massive Hawks fan, but won’t be in my team this year

Shak

That's a very valid point. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. I'm a massive Mitchell fan and believe he's going to play an integral role this season despite having less interchanges and him turning 34 at the latter stages of this year, clarkson is a genius and will find a role for sammy to play that will enable him to still get a lot of the pill while still being able to get loose. I'm a firm believer in him and he's just about as consistent as it gets and consistency is vital in SC. huge season for him and with the hawks chasing the fourpeat, Sam will definitely be in the thick of the action.

Arthur Mungs

And just like a fine wine, he will need to be rested!

Cam

Hi guys, I see a few teams with the likes of Cripps, Adams and the like in them. Are they worth having becuase by the end of the year you will be wanting the best 8 mids in your team, unless people plan on them for bench cover?

Steve

Hey community,
Thoughts on my team??

DEF: Mcveigh, Yeo, KK, Weitering, Dea, Hipwood (Hibberd, Hewett)
MID: Gaz, Ward, Hanners, Rocky, Mundy, Wines, Libba, Mills (Kerridge, Freeman, Jansen)
RUC: Blicavs, Lobbe (Wyatt)
FOR: Zorko, Barlow, Motlop, Schache, C.Curnow, Petracca (Brown, Beech)

Cheers

holty

midfield will be Pendles Ablett Jelwood Rocky Libba Titch Crouch then rookies.
obviously Jelwood depends if he is available for rd1. Kennedy will replace him if not. Fyfe would be a definite starter if there were no doubts with his fitness. Not sure what to expect with Danger this year being at a new club so will hold off until later.
plenty of value this year in the mids.

HOLLA

Current midfield.
T.mitchell steven
Shiel Rockliff
adams Libba
omeara Hopper

Input please community

'Don't Blush Babby'

Bailey

Fyfe pendles Ablett Rockliff ( wines / Cripps ) Libba JOM hopper

BundyBear

shezza

Current midfield:
Dangerfield Ablett Hannebery rockliff Adams Libba O’Mears Crouch Keays Mathieson B Kennedy

Titan

Gday guys
I was thinking about who i think would be top 10 def/mid/fwd and top 5 ruck
Because youd want as many as possible in your starting team to save trades and headaches
So i had a quick look
A very quick look so i know im gonna miss some players
But these are mine
Shaw
Rance
Mcdonald
Laird
McVeigh
Kk
Docherty
Bartel
Smith
Yeo

Fyfe
Danger
Pendles
Ablett
Gray
Jpk
Selwood
Rocky
Shiel
Parker

Goldy
Martin
Jacobs
Mummy
Nic nat

Lids
Martin
Franklin
Dahlhaus
Zorko
Wingard
Bennell
Z merrett
Billings
Greene/smith depending on which gets more mid time as treloar now at pies

Let me know what you think
Or any other ideas or players i may of missed

TJM

Priddis, Hanners?

Titan

I think parker will surpass hanners
I must of scrolled past too quick
Probably drop shiel for him

Rob

B.Crouch (306k) or J.Polec (303k)??

Kev

If both are fit and firing I’d go Crouch, but only just. He tackles more.

Jack

Pendles, Ablett, JPK, Joel Selwood, Rocky. Is everybody sleeping on Selwood after last season or just hesitant because of his injury? I’m also super keen on Dylan Shiel, I feel like he’s ready to break out big time.

Loggs

Fyfe, GAJ, Danger, Priddis, Rockliff, Cripps, Gibbs, Libba (Kennedy, Parish, Mathieson)
What do people think?

Bobby Singh

Fyfe or Danger?

Will

My midfielders very well likely be Ablett, Danger, Pendles, Shiel, Rocky, Cripps and Libba..

Will McKay

Hi all this my 2nd season was wanting some suggestions for rookies who are likely to get a start rd1

Pavos

Dahlhaus or stringer or Barlow or someone else (already got Dustin and buddy)
