That intro was some arousing stuff

Wattsieesq

Hey Community,

I've got a league, if any of you are keen to join. Code is 598631.

I placed well last year, but I'm looking for people to have a bit of banter with over what is generally a long SC season.

Cheers

medadsson

In, look forward to the banter :), cheers.

Callum

Have joined. Looking forward to some banter.

bAps

Joined, looking forward to it!

Rakesh

372216

Patch

Aroused. Significantly aroused. I love you mate.

Stevo

Ok, getting serious now community. How's this team looking Jock, Higgo, Couching??? Some risks yes, but necessary to support a stacked midfield…

D: Shaw, KK, Yeo, Weitering, Hartley, Adams (Collins, M.Brown Ess)
M: Danger, Fyfe, Ablett, Pendles, Rocky, Libba, Mills, Gresham (T.Phillips, M.Herbett, R.Davis)
R: Goldy, Gawn (Grimley)
F: Dusty, Barlow, A.Hall, Wells, Kerridge, Petraca (M.Cox, McDonald-Tippa.

Kev

Admire that you're sticking by KK and Yeo. Rest of the team looks of okay

Stevo

Thanks Kev. Bartel another option I'm still considering for D3. Though Yeo should get more minutes.

todd

Have a concern about Hartley, went missing against West Coast. Have you looked at Dea? Solid numbers but does cost a little more

Stevo

Agree Todd. Taking a punt on the Essendon Rookies but have some bench options.

Puck Jump

This is the OFFICIAL Cookie Cutter team. Congrats. Zero Pods.

Tony

Agree. There will be about 300 of this exact team some Round 1. Not that it's a problem, trading will soon sort them out.

Tony

* come Round 1

Stevo

True Puck Jump, I'm looking for early wins this season. Too many burn-men selections last few seasons.

Beagz

Petracca on field? The bloke hasn't played a single minute of footy…

Gibb99

Simply arousing (as per usual with you lads) Jocky Boy!

What are ya thoughts fellas?

Defense
R.Laird J. Bartel J. Johannisen S. Hurn M. Dea K. Collins

Midfielders
N. FyfeP. Dangerfield G. Ablett D. Shiel T. Rockliff L. Parker T. Liberatore C. Oliver

Rucks
S. Martin M. Gawn

Forwards
M. Barlow A. Hall D. Wells C. Menadue L. McCarthy S. Kerridge

Bench
Brown Hartley
Petrecca, Mathieson, Macpherson
Cox
Kommer Grimley

All rookies subject for movement as you'd all know!
Mills, Oliver, Parish causing me headaches
Mitch brown looks sloppy so is only just holding on!

I'M WELL AND TRULY AROUSED FOR THIS YEAR!

mr ed

This looks balanced
I think going 4 on the backline is sensible
If rookies are only getting 40's or 50's this is just too many points to give up

ghost

Absoulute Shit! Why do you even play the game of Supercoach! Fancy having Menadue and a guy whose name is Lincoln! It's like you copy your friends from school! The guy who showed you Jock must be a true champ of the Supercoach world. Team rating 2/10 sort it

walla

Who the f### r u ghost . What a tossbag u r . Shut up u keyboard hero .

derek

this is what Jock was talking about. too much in the guts!. At least one premium too many in midfield. Where is your cash generation going to come from?

gibb99

I'll 'gut' you mate! Nah just having you on HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Love the tips, this is what truly makes this community great! The willingness to help out a mate when it comes to even the most minor change within there supercoach squadron! I love you guys and I honestly hope this community will reach out to the wider community! Even if you arent into supercoach, these forums will restore faith in humanity and propel our nation forward! The community really makes me froth at the mouth and I know I'll do anything to push in to the next level of national superiority! I know I will head down to the local and drink my [email protected]#ked up trades away with a few coldies while enjoying a great game of CoachKings! I can already see those Scooners frothing over the lip! Cheers community!

Sean

what cash generation? there probably wont even be 4 mid rookies starting rd 1

Andrew

Im nearly there…I think.

Thanks in advance.

Shaw, Laird, Zaharakis (I know he is not a keeper but think he is under priced)

or

Shaw, B.Smith, M.Duncan (Like him as a POD)

or

Houli, Laird, M.Duncan.

Gibb99

Houli, Laird, Duncan
I feel like shaws price with drop and you can pick him up later in the year! Not sold on Houli however! I think there is better options at his price!

Gaw

Hi guys looking for some feedback for team, mainly is Ablett a necessity?
Def: shaw laird kk johannisen weitering dea
Mid: fyfe danger rockliff cripps libba b.crouch mills
Rucks: Nic Nat gawn
Fwd: Barlow s gray a hall wells kerridge petracca
Cheers!

SCaddict

Gaz is a 50/50 call for me and can understand coaches going both ways, especially after the post traumatic stress we suffered last season.

Right now he's in my team but it's one of the things keeping me tossing and turning in bed atm. Will be keeping a close eye on Suns training over the next week before I make that final call. Any other player and I would've said "stuff you" by now.

derek

have you every watched Ablett play football. He averaged 110 start of last year with only 1 arm.

Ablett is a must!

i think Gray and Hall is too risky as neither are keepers. i think you need to pick one.

Puck Jump

Bit different than the standard team and I Like it!

Steeeve

Hi all, I am tossing up my r3 options. I see a few people with Korcheck but he doesn't have DPP. Chol does, but Richmond play a lot of Friday night games so he isn't going to be great for loopholing. Should I go someone like Loersch from GC? I have Grimley forward so could throw him in as cover in case of injury. But don't want to start him at r3 because he will play most weeks it seems.

bAps

If you're looking for a genuine loophole R3, M. King from Melbourne is your man. DPP and rookie-listed, so he won't play any games this year, and Melbourne have a ton of Sunday games.

Pman35

Which M King do you refer to? There are 2 listed, Max and Mitchell, both DPP and $117K priced! I currently have Chol at R3 as only $102K and DPP but hadn't factored in Friday nights so I'm interested to know which M King is best pick for Captain's loop hole for my my R3?

Phil

Doesn't matter which one u take, both same price, both DPP, both won't play

Connor

Pick D. Wyatt from Collingwood, $102,000 and shouldn't play at all this year. Also has something like 13 Sunday games…

Steeeve

Hadn't really even considered him because I thought Collingwood would have a lot of Friday night games.
Other option would be to just go Grimley r3 and figure that someone will miss each week from my side…

SCaddict

Pies only play one Friday night game in their first 12 games and half of those 12 games are either Sunday are Monday games as well.

So they're not actually that bad for loophole purposes at least in the first half of the season. It's just a shame that the one Friday game is Rd2 otherwise they would be absolutely flawless for the loophole.

Jonathon

Would like some feedback and thoughts on my team guys
DEF: Shaw, Laird, Bartel, Johannisen, Dea, Broad, (Adams), (Tipungwuti)
MID: Fyfe, Dangefield, Ablett, Gray, Ward, Rockliff, Mills, Oliver, (Gresham), (Mathieson), (Davis)
RUCKS: Goldstein, Smith, (King)
FWDS: Barlow, De Goey, Wells, Kennedy, Menadue, Kerridge, (Petracca), (Brown)

If another cheaper mid rookie pops up ill downgrade Oliver, And I know my Fwd Structure is a bit suspect but i think the value up forward is too good to refuse

Again would love some of your thoughts and feedback thanks

LionGliffen

mid is way too stacked

fwd is way too thin. You know you have a problem when De Goey is F2…

Like the look of the defence though

derek

forward line is one of the weakest i've seen. you need to have at least two keepers. I would go Ward to Libba and deGoey to Dusty.

Tret

What are the community thoughts on Libba?

I know hes at a bloody good price but is he a lock?

Im toying with a team that doesnt involve him. What do we think?

Cookie Cutter

Would take balls not to pick him at his price

SCaddict

Hasn't had the greatest NAB but you are getting a fantasy beast in waiting for not much more than a chiko roll and a can of coke.

So if you don't start with him I reckon there's a strong chance you'll want to make a corrective trade to get him in after 2 rounds.

Big G

I tossed him for Mills and upgraded to a second premium ruck. I figured he will only average 105 at best and Mills can average 70-75. I feel more confident with a set and forget ruck combo and then I can upgrade Mills to a premium down the track.

derek

he is worth the risk if you don't have too many other midprice players. I think 1 midpricer on each line is ok, especially if they are a "fallen premium" like he is. i'm not keen on the rising star mid pricers

Greg

Advice please community, it is doing my head in !!
Goldstein and Rockliff or
Naitanui and Fyfe.

I am currently running with option one as I think Goldy and Fyfe will score about the same but Rockliff has a greater upside that Naitanui but the niggling doubts about Rockliff's fitness has me re-assessing and now my head is just spinning.
I worryl it will be like being at airport customs where you always pick the wrong queue.

Redgumwon

Nic Nat & Fyfe for me

derek

it doesn't really matter, they are all ultra premium keepers. If i was to pick i would go with Fyfe and Nic Nat. I think that we might be able to get Goldy at a discount in a few weeks. But that means starting with a mid-pricer at R2, not Nic nat.

they will all be in my team by round 10.

Bangs

Is Ablett a lock?

derek

yes

Jack

Everyone told me he was last year and i didnt pick him. Ablett was and probably always will be the best supercoach player we have ever seen. But unfortunately he has been absolutely ravaged by injury lately. No match fitness. Played 6 games last year. He is a gun and could probably become a gun again. But at 630k, with fyfe and danger still around who have had a full preseason/nab, i dont believe he is a lock. An understandable pick if he plays round 1, but there will always be a time where each fantasy gun can no longer maintain that mantle.

HOLLA

Agree

Cpt Pugwash

Not in my team (Gulp)!!!!!!!

Will see how he goes in first couple. We will all make correctional trades. Just keep some cash handy.

SCaddict

If I get the slightest inkling he's not fully right and carrying anything more than a minor niggle into Rd1 I'll swing the axe even if Rocket doesn't have the plums to do that himself.

But so far he's held down a spot all preseason in my team.

DadSmasher

He should be Bangs. Even if his head falls off in round 1 it wont cost you anything to swap him BUT if he goes BANG BANG BANG you wont be able to afford him without cashing in a premo

@BarronVonCrow

Fantastic stuff, Jock, Higgo and Crouching. Love it!

Crouch Bros, both will play, but both will have different roles, but could possibly end up near equal. Big change at the Crows with Pyke preferring a more uncontested style, rather than the pure contested/stoppage work that Sando/Walsh went with. Matt will still have his place along with Thompson to do some contested work in the middle, as will Brad, but Brad is like Rory Sloane in that he can play both in and out, whereas Matt is just a pure accumulator on the inside.

I'm currently tinkering with Jack Steele as my F4 and Ben Kennedy as my F6, but Menadue will be there too potentially.

Rucks are still frustrating. Nic Nat may be locked in, by Tippett who I originally had as R2 was rubbish, but may consider Smith or even Luenberger who seemed to get through a VFL match quite well.

Patch

Insightful truths coming out of Adelaide – invaluable insight mate. Steele is a bold alternative to De Goey, that's ballsy, Barron. Love it though.

Also, what idiot suggested Tippett in the first place? Hahah- oh, wait.

I considered Smith as well but have gone back to my original pairing of Martin and Gawn. Hate dicking around in the rucks.

SCaddict

Most of us have gone in circles when it comes to deciding on starting rucks this season.

I've come back to my original set and forget GoldMart combo as it's just hard to see either guy under performing even though that's always a possibility.

derek

i'm not rushing in to the set and forget Rucks. It is still uncertain what the new interchange and subvest rules will have on the rucks and their scoring. remember last year!

until i'm sure that they will be able to score as well as previous years, i'm starting with NicNat (undervalued premium) and lobbe (#1 ruck in a good team with a dream draw). I will be hoping to get Goldy cheaper than those who start the season with him, and therefore a distinct advantage.

Steeeve

Love the fortitude to stick with Lobbe. I wanted to, although I never thought I could upgrade him to Goldy. So was going to start with Goldy and Lobbe. But just can't after seeing the ruckmen he is up against early.

SCaddict

Both Goldy and Stef are fantastic around the ground mobile ruckman with big motors so I expect they will only excel under the rule tweaks if anything.

Derek I'm not sure what you've seen in Lobbe but he hasn't really shown us diddly in the preseason. Only appears to be continuing where he left off last season which was fairly underwhelming output. In fact he hasn't tonned up since Rd12 last season!

I hear what you are saying about a wait and see approach but I just don't think the midprice options like Lobbe, Smith or Leuey are up to much chop this season. Just not the same as a proven elite like Sandi who was a midpricer in 2014 who most coaches started with.

Derek

i like that lobbe has been tackling well.

It was only NAB.

My main reason is that i don't want to pay $700k for Goldy. but if i get another premium then it is sideways to Goldy.

mick

same thinking scaddict goldstein cap 300 points matin 100 plus now thats juicy 400 points plus in the ruck

Eric_the_Red

It's Steele vs Wells at F4 for me. I eliminated Menzel from that equation to make it easier. I had my Cats goggles on when considering him. Can I ask you why you've chosen Steele and turned away from the very popular Wells?

Puck Jump

Me too. But Steele at F3. The kid is a JET. Look at his tackles last season. Lowest was 4 for the season and debuted with TEN! He racks them up, and even if he gets close to an 80 average he will do his job long enough to be upgraded. He will be reliable and now that the vest is a distant memory i love the idea of backing in a young kid as a POD to ride home each week as a unique. He's neck and neck with De Goey but slightly less popular pick. I'm on him.

@BarronVonCrow

Wells is my F5. I've gone for both!

Rabbits16

Thought brad crouch got dropped

@SC_Centre

I've pondering for a while community… when you select your supercoach sides. Do you base it around your structures or certain players?

@BarronVonCrow

I usually let players dictate structure.

derek

i have a structure that i wrote down last september. will be sticking to that.

i select the players as either keepers (3-5-1-3) or cash generators. I have 28 players i see as keepers and if i don't start with them i will be looking at trading them in at a discount to their starting price, never more than their starting price.

@SC_Centre

*been pondering

milesdeutscher

Toby Greene or Aaron Hall?

Chill

greene.

Patch

Aaron Hall every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

milesdeutscher

Why do you think that? I can see Greene getting back to his 2014 ways and averaging 95+ again this year. Aaron Hall may be affected by O'Meara and Prestia etc. coming back into the side. Maybe we're all reading too much into the NAB.

Dan

Hall

Redgumwon

Greene looked to spend more time forward and Steele in the midfield against the Lions. I'm not sure if that was because Stevie J went off at half time or not? Has me a little worried though as I had Greene a lock at F3. I'm now considering Hall at F3

SCaddict

Both are excellent choices and I'll almost certainly be starting with both unless something funky happens with the rookies next week and I'm forced to restructure.

If I could only choose one it would probably be Hall as his NAB form has been nothing short of sensational.

As such the bugger has forced me to pick him even if I do have some concerns about his role and output once the Suns midfield big guns return.

Spifflicator

Greene looks like he will have the same role as last year and as such I can't see him increasing his output. Steele will, IMO out score him. Take Hall

bAps

With Zorko rubbed out for round 1, who should I replace him with? My FWD line was Dusty, Zorko, Barlow, Wells, Menadue, Kerridge. Cheers community!

Chill

Wingard? had a cracker end to last season

bAps

I think Hinkley said Wingard will be playing predominantly forward this year, which makes him a no-go for mine. Last season he scored so well because he had a lot of midfield minutes.

derek

but Port have such a good early draw, the ball will be down there plenty. I'm starting with Wingard

SCaddict

I'd include either Hall or Greene and use the $100K savings to improve your team elsewhere.

Steeeve

Hall. And I've got Wingard, will still score well plus port has an easy draw.

Shake n bake

Gray

Vex

what structure are people rolling with in the midfield?

I like the idea of 3 rookies on field (mills, oliver, etc) but im also liking a stacked midfield where I have libba at m7

bAps

I feel there aren't enough midfield rookies that will actually play (aside from expensive ones), so I've loaded up in the midfield. I've got four $600k+ players, Rocky, Libba, and Mills and Gresham on field.

Liam

Exact same as me Baps.

bAps

Great minds think alike Liam πŸ˜‰

Redgumwon

I've gone with two rookies on the ground in the midfield. Mills & Oliver. Then loaded the midfield

jimmy7

g'day lads…great podcast as always…..one question for now
Nick Graham: $$390G
NAB 1: 18 DISPOSALS 7 CONTESTED 5 TACKLES 2 GOALS HAWKS
NAB 2: 24 DISPOSALS 16 CONTESTED 4 TACKLES DONS
NAB 3: 30 DISPOSALS 8 CONTESTED 6 MARKS 4 TACKLE 1 GOAL SWANS
so umm idk if i am missing some info but is he going to go good this year orr???

bezza

Feeling the same mate. Awkwardly priced tho

Cam

Looks the goods in NAB but in a side that may be on the wrong end of a few big losses it's tough to pick a guy worth nearly 400k when he is yet to show consistency in regular season

Wally Wombat

Mate I took out Libba and put Graham in. I think Libba will drop some more and Graham will start well then drop off a little as he did a couple of years ago

Leeds17

About 90k more than I can justify for a cash cow, when you have the likes of Libba and the Crouches.

Rabbits16

Shhhh

jimmy7

three hundreds last year out of like six games……though a cant see him getting in my team, i wish he was cheaper, liba is the go though

FootyFanatic

Can't choose between Rich, McGovern and Johannisen for my D3. Who would you rather and why?

Chill

McGovern. Solid player… proven unlike Johannisen. Rich im wary of.

Patch

I love both McGovern and Johanissen and Rich is being considered… but JJoh is in my side and will stay there. Shannon Hurn is another one I'd consider in that spot.

bAps

Normally I'd say McGovern, but with Beams out indefinitely and Redden gone to the Weagles, I think Rich is the best pick of those three. Johannisen is just this years NAB flavour, he won't live up to the hype in season proper.

'Don't Blush Babbie'

I have D.Rampe as D3 ,take the tip imo

derek

i like Rich. One of the few genuine midfielders who are in Defence this year. With Beams out he will be in the Guts.

DadSmasher

I'd go McGovern FootyFanatic. The loss of Beams doesn't mean Rich will get more on ball time, Beams was out most of last year and Rich only broke the 100 twice because Mitch Robinson filled Beams' place better than Beams could.
Rich is a huge trap, last year without Beams in the team he pumped out SIX SUB 60 scores. This year the lions got Bundy from the Cats and Ding Dong from the blues plus the good rookie mids that they drafted. Getting Rich will make you poor.

Wally Wombat

I have Rich. Lions have lost 2 quality midfielders so I think he will move back into the midfield with some time sweeping across half back as the loose defender.

Leeds17

JJ is a Trap I really on he'll average 80odd over a season might start well though with I think it's 7 straight Eitihad games. Rich is similar can definitely do what you want him to but if he starts playing too well will get tagged out of games, McGovern is the most reliable scorer but most unreliable injury wise.

Youngy

Rich for me, I reckon he will get most midfield time

Dee

are you guys all locking in H. Shaw?

Disco

O'Rourke? Any love?

SCaddict

Should get an opportunity with the Shiels injury but Mills, Parish, Oliver and Crowley are all cheaper and probably better choices.

You really just want to jump on the best rookies rather than look for PODs there. They have a very short shelf life and will be culled without mercy once fattened.

derek

Hartung maybe with Shiels out

@Inside50mFooty

Agreed, Hartung before Jono, has not found his place from my vantage point.

Youngy

There are better options… Oliver, Mills, Parish etc

I N Pieman

I was out the front of AFL house today with a PUNISH THE ROOKIE SLAYER banner. And they listened. Park your ass on the couch for a month Jeremy!

Patch

Dammit! I drafted him last night!

Liam

Great stuff fellas, love your work.

Would love the community's thoughts on my team.
DEF: Laird, Bartel, JJ, Weitering, Dea, Hartley (Brown, Adams)
MID: Fyfe, Danger, Pendles, GAJ, Rocky, Libba, Mills, Gresham (Petracca, Hewett, Davis)
RUC: Goldy, Gawn (Wyatt)
FWD: Martin, Barlow, Hall, Wells, Kennedy, Kerridge (McCarthy, Tippa)

Rookies are subject to change depending who gets named.
Let me know your thoughts.

Cheers Liam.

Chill

Pretty standard. I like it but I feel like I have seen this team 100 times before. Might be a reason it's so popular!

Liam

Not sure what changes I should make, I understand it is a bit of a cookie cutter team.

Swans2012

If your happy with it just roll with it! Plenty of trades to differentiate your team once the season starts. No point taking a pod just to be different!

Chill

I agree… wasnt having a go Liam. Last year's winner had a very standard team.. no PODs. its how you trade.

Liam

I'm wanting to trade Martin for Lids and JJ for rich but can't find the cash.

Dale

it doesnt matter how your start it, its how your trade in the next 20 odd rounds

azza

hey guys thoughts of trading dusty to robinson,
which makes the fwd line: barlow, robinson,hall,wells,kerridge,kennedy ?

Redgumwon

No keep the Dust man

Genius

Wise move azza don't let anybody change your mind

BB

I'm with Genius azza – Mitch will tackle his way to 90+

SCaddict

Whilst I don't think Robbo would be a bad choice you should be careful on making a knee jerk reaction off one NAB weekend where Robbo waxed and Dusty waned.

I don't have either fella so don't really have a foot in either camp but just something to think about.

DadSmasher

I don't think its a knee jerk reaction SCaddict. Mitch ave 114 over the last 8 games of last year, won Lions Best and Fairest, was Captain for NAB1 and topped the ton in both NAB games.
Dusty ave 102 over last 8 games, not in top 5 for tiges B and F, attacked a woman with chopstick in his preseason, stunk it up in Nab, has personal problems and struggles to reach 60 against Carlton

Sammy

Great stuff mate, you have the exact same fwd kind as me!!!!! I really like robbo this year with no beams there, will maintain the role he had towards the backend of last year! A serious POD it seems and due to a high tackle count, Brissy don't have to win games for him to score points!

Chill

Any love for Brodie Smith out there? His price is hard to pass up despite his poor performances…

jimmy7

Personaly i rate smith highly, if he gets goin…goodluck stoppin him!!

bAps

He's currently an option for my D3, I have yet to decide between him, Hurn and Rich…

Chill

Don't see the appeal in Hurn… played 2006-2015 with mediocre supercoach scores. What indicates this will change?
I'm trying to decide between Smith and Suckling…my biiiiig POD call…

SCaddict

What's that burning smell??

Chill

he'll be on fire out there on the field?? there's a lot of potential burnmen in the back this year…. johannisen, bartel, kk, yeo…

SCaddict

Yes maybe it was just my post as it was a tad incendiary.

I gotta say I'm kind of tempted on Johanna at that price range so maybe he'll turn out to be my own personal burnman.

So let's hope both Smith and Johanna light it up on the field this season, rather than light us up instead! πŸ™‚

Dice

Keep it quiet Chill, I reckon he's a must.
And to make things better he's a POD the former 2014 all australian.
Just turned 24 and started last year like a house on fire before injuries interrupted his year.
I have enough money to pick Laird – but i'm saving that on Smith

Thought community?

DEF – Shaw, Houli, Laird, Lonergan, Dea, Hartley (Adams, Ruggles)
MID – Fyfe, Dangerfield, Ablett, Rockliff, Libba, Mills, Kennedy, Gresham (Petracca, Davis, MacPherson)
RUCK – Goldstein, Gawn (Loersch)
FWD – Martin, Barlow, Hall, De Goey, Wells, Kerridge (M. Brown, Tipungwuti)

Obviously rookies subject to selection
Thanks!

Kev

Looks a bit light in the midfield

LionGliffen

Too many midpricers in the forward line maybe?

Hall, De Goey and Wells all carry a certain risk. You have all 3

Not to mention Lonergan is an awkward price for what will at best be an 80-85 avging season

Dan

Anyone think Sam Gray will be a FWD keeper? Will he be top come end of the year? Considering Wingard over the likes of Martin and Dahl, but wondering if there may be possibly more upside in Sam.

Kev

At the price he is you have to pick him as a keeper. Top 10 he's a good shot; top 6? Maybe not

Shake n bake

I have S Gray only reason I really think he's a keeper or else I wouldn't have selected him.

@footy_bec

I think he will be a keeper. All good signs, reminds me of Robbie when he broke out.

Marco_Polo94

Hey guys, those who generally go well in rankings are welcome to join. Would love a competitive league. 410496

H.Shaw, R.Laird, J.Johannisen, J.Weitering, M.Dea, N.Broad. (M.Brown, M.Adams)

Mid:
P.Dangerfield, G.Ablett, T.Rockliff, L.Parker, O.Wines, T.Liberatore, B.Crouch (Pending R1 selection), C.Mills. (B.Kennedy, G.Hewett, R.Mathieson [Depends on length of injury])

Ruck:
N.Naitanui, M.Gawn (S.Grimley)

Fwd:
D.Zorko, M.Barlow, A.Hall, D.Wells, C.Menadue, S.Kerridge. (C.Petracca, AMT)

50K left in the bank, going for both league wins and a top 1K ranking, hopefully i can pull it off, im just going to take zorko on the bench for RD 1, and hope that switching him with B.Kennedy via DPP will score 80+. Also, should i go AMT or L.McCarthy? Have enough cash for both.

RobDogs

Zorko is suspended

@grayson_lowee

yeah i know, did you read the final paragraph? πŸ™‚

@footy_bec

Like Hartley over Brown. C.Mills over the other two. And Cripps over the other two. That last one is probably against what others would say. I rate him highly.
Def – is good – Weitering might be a little weak for D4 but is standard among many teams.
Mid – Solid but I'm not sold on B.Crouch coming back in straight away. I think he is underdone despite SANFL appearance.
Ruck – like it
Fwd – I have no issue waiting for Zorko for one game. I am going with Robinson myself.
I think AMT is hard to go past at his price.

good to see someone picking up buddy. seriously undervalued.

Trengrove won't play. A few nice pod. JPK not in enough teams, nice one.

RUCK: Martin Nic Nat (cox)

FWD: Bennell Greene buest a.hall wells McCarthy (petracca brown)

What u guys think?

cuzza

I'd beware of bennel and bartel but that's personal opinion, Bennell because you don't know what ole rosy has in store for him and bartel Im cautious about age/ body holding up

SCaddict

Tend to agree cuzza although Harley did look pretty good on the weekend even if his SC score didn't reflect it.

But Barlow really is a must have this season in my view, as boring as it may seem, and will be in every one of my fantasy salary cap sides.

Tony

u reckon I should ditch McGovern or Gibbo for Bartel? I originally had Bartel but changed mind cos of his injury and not so great year last year. Harley will dominate in my eyes as I think he's the missing link for freo..

SCaddict

Yes Bennell could be a nice POD for you but are you not a believer in Barlow in 2016? Has been one of the standout performers in the NAB and looks every bit the Barlow of old that delivered us 110 plus seasons.

I understand your concerns on Bartel and they are certainly valid. But I'd still favour him over a KPP like the Governator even as awesome a KPP as he is. If Bartel still sounds too risky to you perhaps spend an extra $30K to get someone in like Simpson or Laird who shouldn't let you down.

Alternatively you could even consider a bargain buy at D3 like Sheridan, Sutcliffe, McKenzie or Harwood and use that cash elsewhere.

Darren

Got 2 spots in 740737

Cuzza

Thoughts?
changes to rookies/ bench/ maybes as req

DEF: Yeo, Gibson, Laird, nelson, Dea, brown (ess). Bench: Adams (W/B), Hartley.

MID: Danger, Abblett, Pridda, Mitchell, M. Crouch, Libba, C. Mills, C. Oliver. Bench: Menadue, R. Davis?, D. Macpherson?

RUC: Gawn, Goldy Dench: Currie

FWD:Barlow, A. Hall, stringer, C. Sinclair, Wells, Kerridge Bench: McCarthy (Geelong), Tipungwuti.

Rakesh

I like your bench especially the Ruck. Are you positive about Ablett or just because others are picking him? You do not have brownlow winner in your team which seems to be a brave call. Sam Mitchell is ageing and Stringer is maturing. The breakout player to be touted is one saint who will play more in midfield rather than in forward line. All the best though it will change once round 1 teams are announced.

Cuzza

IMitchell has actually been changed 3 times from treloar and ward and Fyfe haha, just trying to get the mid tier lads I'm keen on. I expect Fyfe to drop in value initially to be honest, the talk of him rotating out of the forward line has me worried about losing value, I don't think it will be much but it will be around 30- 50 k I reckon. Enough for me to swoop on him after and lock in

Cuzza

And yeah same goes for king Ablett, as far as whether he's a lock

milesdeutscher

Everyone's thoughts on Darcy Parish?

SCaddict

Should be a nice little cash cow if named for Rd1 although I will probably be starting with Mills and maybe even Oliver instead, depending on the Brad Crouch situation.

I expect there to be a lot of scurrying around after Rd2 as we all jump on the best of Mills, Parish, Crowley, Oliver, Gresham, Menadue, Macaffer, Kennedy, O'Rourke etc just before the price hikes.

Steeeve

Agreed about the scurrying, which I mostly avoided last year. Anyone who picks the best rookies to start the season will have a massive advantage.

@Inside50mFooty

will be on my bench, but must have selection (obvious) by Woosha. Clearly a talent, just when, price is fair.

Youngy

Prefer Mills and don't want to run with to many 200k+ rookies

Dee

will he play round 1?

Trent

Community, what are your thoughts? This has just crossed my mind today that J. O'Rourke (230k) looks to be the next ready made player to step up in place for the recent injury to the likes of Liam Shiel meaning he should get a bit more of a run and midfield minutes? Too much of a risk or potential POD in the sense of a cash cow..?

Harry Gibb

Terrible team, don't bother to play the game

Puck Jump

Risky bro

SCaddict

Go for it dude if you really believe in O'Rourke and see the opportunity.

Worst thing that could happen is that he turns out to be a disappointment after two rounds in which case you can easily jump down to a Mills, Kennedy, Parish, Oliver, Menadue, Macaffer or Crowley who are all cheaper albeit you'll have one less trade in your pocket.

But I doubt that many coaches will start with him given those other options on the table.

@randomcliche

If you structure allows, run 2 or more of those SCaddict identifies (I'm going Kennedy). Fair chance Mills/Kennedy higher at rnd 3 imo. Just have to go deeper in other lines. I don't think any of them are bad individually, just tricky trying to jam em all in an effective team.

@Inside50mFooty

Agree with Random, why waste a trade, just see who Clarko slots in , my bet on Hartung, Billy has been a beast in training term. Jono completely untested in AFL.

Glorin

Different roles. Hartung hardly going to be at the coal face tackling like a mad man. He will replace suckling, in a way. Might open up a slot for Lovell, but more likely O'Rourke with poppy, bruest, whitecross getting more mid time.

Glorin

Or Howe.

The_Black_Mamba

You have given me no clear reasons you trolling cockhead

Redgumwon

Couldn't have said it better myself Mamba πŸ™‚

Wally Wombat

Very positive thoughts you have on here Harry. Obviously a master of the English language.

Kudos

I like the Barlow, Greene "and" Hall forward line.

The_Black_Mamba

Thanks kudos! Should all have breakout years

Dee

no Ablett?

Damon Bisetto

what are everyones thoughts on mcveigh

SCaddict

Almost certainly won't play Rd1 so shouldn't factor into anyone's starting selections.

Nonetheless he'll likely be in heaps of teams including mine in the second half of the season given his precious DPP eligibility in defence.

Danners

Injured, upgrade target

Youngy

Injured…..

Redgumwon

Maybe swap Simpson for Laird? Not big on Crippaa either as there might be better options that won't get tagged as much.

Holty

everyone has their opinions but i like the Simpson pick. He has been a proven premium so less risk. you know what your getting. Laird is still a uncertainty. I have him in my team but when you seriously compare the both of them, im wondering why im not going simpson myself

The_Black_Mamba

Exactly my thoughts Holty, You know that you will get a definitie 90+ average from simpson if not 95.

Holty

True. I like your defensive line. very strong. My structure sort of similar but have weitering and dea at d5 and d6.

mick

whos can tag cripps ball hunter tackles and everything else locked

'Don't Blush Babbie'

I like it, maybe Montagna to Barlow then Gray to Ablett would be my only input,good luck

BKLS

850 k for a d2 and d3 with Laird d1. Currently have McGovern ahd johannisen but Hurn is one I also don't mind. Thoughts?
