The JLT series is done and dusted and now we have to get stuck into sorting the wheat from the chaff, the good from the bad and the locks from the TRAPS!

Jump into the trenches and post your team as it stands post-JLT below! If you’ve got any questions for the podcast feel free to throw them in there as well.

Keep in mind we’ve made a few changes to the site to make it easier to search for everything we’ve done in the preseason. The PLAYERS 2018 tab drops down to allow you to search for all the defenders, midfielders, rucks and forwards by their price bracket, remembering a premium is $500,000 and above and a rookie is below $200,000.

We also covered every. single. bloody JLT game this preseason – huge shoutout to everyone who put pen to paper to cover one. Links to all of them are as follow:

WEST COAST v FREMANTLE

GOLD COAST v BRISBANE

ESSENDON v GEELONG

ZERRETT! Yes Carleton.

Question with not starting Danger – what's your plan to get him in? You'll need him ASAP and while he'll lose cash upgrading to a 650k mid in round five is going to be nearly impossible.

Carleton
Guest
Carleton

Well, he's barring that injury now, so there's that. I think with Dangerfield being pushed forward, his price will fluctuate a lot. Heck, even last year he dropped to $560,000 — and he was unstoppable that year. I'll grab him near round 7 when his price is down to $525,000.

Willo
Guest

LOL I dont see his price getting down to $525k.

Carleton
Guest

Like I said, last year, his price got down to $560,000, and this was when the best player ever was playing in the midfield. Now, Ablett will push him forward and he's barring an injury. Have you ever seen a forward never dip to $525,000? Do your research.

Would love some criticism… please please please!

Backs: Laird Hibberd Sicily Naughton Coffield Murray (Doedee, Finlayson)

Rucks: Martin, Gawn (Cameron)
Forwards: Heeney, Walters, McLean, Petracca, Keeffe, Fritsch (Garlett, Ryan)

Have 4 starting Melbourne players, and intend to keep 3. Too many?
Not sure about my structure. Plus no elite forward rookies. Thinking of stacking the forward line with 5 premos and cutting out Coniglio for Brodie!

Brent
Guest

Missed Coniglio from my mids. Sorry

Westy

Hey Brent,
Have LDU, Keeffe and Garlett done enough in JLT to warrant inclusion?
Apart from that, a seriously interesting team.
How much cash left over?

Brent
Guest

I like LDU’s job security.
Not sure which other rookies replace Keeffe and Garlett?
Only have 60k left over

StevoRivo
Guest
StevoRivo

Solid team. I gather you plan to use Cogs and a rook plan to upgrade to Danger?
Also think you need to consider starting with some DPP swings for mids (Fogarty) and maybe Keefe with Sicily? Do you have cash for that?

StevoRivo
Guest
StevoRivo

Oops,
I see Keefe is there. Consider Fogarty or Stephenson over LDU at M7?

Tibor
Guest
Tibor

Pretty good imo.

Just a brief comment on Fritsch job security.

Probably gets a start in r1 while Viney out. Viney back in r2 or 3 . Also Melbourne have a bit of a developmental pattern where they give rookies a bit of a taste then rest them or put them back to Casey. They did this with Hannan. Last year and Oliver the previous year. Fritsch has looked good but even if he gets a start he might be gone before he makes you any money.

DunNuthin
Guest
DunNuthin

Small concern that Jed Lamb could shut down your D3 so easily becomes a bigger concern when 5 of your 8 defenders are rookies.
LDU is a slowburn and Barry unlikely to play, Coniglio is a waste of $ get a real UPrem like Neil, Kelly, Oliver.
Turn walters into Hogan and Garlett into Bell plus Brayshaw into Banfield and Coffield into brayshaw.
If that doesn't get you round 1 top score you can have your $0 back.

JohnDJ59
Guest
JohnDJ59

I have four Dees players as well,Hibberd, Oliver, Gawn, Petracca. My main worry with your side is Sicily, Brayshaw if it the Melbourne one and LDU. Your structure seems fine,although I think we can get away with 5 premos and 3 rookies on field in the mids this year.

Not bad Matt. I don't like JJ personally as he is a marked man and will be tagged out of most games. Not starting Danger is madness if you're chasing overall rank. I do like the inclusion of Bell instead of Christensen, and having O'meara and Armitage could be a master move providing points and cash for upgrades later. Good luck.

Starkingdom
Guest

Solid team Tommy. I like the rookies down back, all of them will probably play early rounds and provide cash for upgrades. Ahern in the mids is a concern but can be used as a DPP if not selected in early rounds, he'll get game time eventually. Pendles a good POD.

Danger out gives me a nice spread across all lines with the extra 100k, goal is for Coniglio to increase enough to make the jump to danger eventually. I think my spread of players will make up for the points in the mean time. This is if he does miss….

So tough to land the right mix. This starting team leaves no cash and a few risks, please comment, feedback….

D: Yeo, Laird, Hibberd, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (Murphy, Mihocek);
M: Danger, Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs, Brayshaw, Barry (Kelly, Holman, Garlett);
R: Ryder, Gawn (Cameron):
F: Heeney, Lambert, Smith, Christensen, Fogarty, Ryan (Fritsh, Rioli).

INPieman
Guest
INPieman

The only thing worse than the forward rookies scoring potential is their job security. I think Christensen at F5 minimum. Possibly F6. Fogarty is a fine talent but he's hot & cold. Soon as he's cold he's off to the SANFL. A poor showing from any of Ryan Rioli or Fritsch could see them booted. Think Eddy & Pickett last year. I'd consider Finlayson down back. Other than that solid team Stevo

StevoRivo
Guest
StevoRivo

Thanks INP. To get Christensen down to F5 or 6 means someone like Cogs goes to find cash. Can’t bring myself to dropping Danger, even if he misses Round 1. I like Finlayson too, but to get him means Brayshaw makes way for Coffield or Hunter at M7. Other forward rook options?

Derek
Guest
Derek

i would prefer to start without Yeo and have an extra rookie in defense and go an extra keeper in the forward line.

StevoRivo
Guest
StevoRivo

Hi Derek.
Interesting option. Will have a look. Thanks.

StevoRivo
Guest
StevoRivo

Hi Derek. After a bit of juggling, extra rookie in defence and larger spread of fwds. Rather than Billings or Greene and a mid price, I’m thinking Petraca and Sicily. How does this shape up?

D: Laird, Hibberd, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Keefe, Murphy);
M: Danger, Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs, Brayshaw, Barry (Kelly, Garlett, Holman);
R: Ryder, Gawn (Cameron);
F: Heeney, Lambert, Smith, Petraca, Sicily, Fritsch (Ryan, Ahern).

Rookie picks all selection dependant of course

Derek
Guest
Derek

i don't mind that set up. something i've been tinkering with ever since Shaw got booted, just go with 2 defenders. dropping Yeo & Christensen gives you petracca and Sicily

you have keeffe to swing Sicily back if needed so it could be Sicily at D3

have a look at Bell and McCartin instead of having Sicily and Ahern

StevoRivo
Guest
StevoRivo

Interesting option de McCartin & Bell though Sicily provides an X factor and dpp swing. Ahern may not play so might look to other options around his price.

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

Hi Steve, I'd also punt Yeo for now for maybe someone like Shaw, Ryan or Siciflog..and get Finlayson in for Mihocek.
Also you could consider punting ryder for say Nank, both options will save you biccies for better forwards.
You could add Petracca, Hogan, Robinson or cheaper options such as McCartin, as the other blokes said.
Good luck…solid side though 🙂 You'll do well.

Hanley down to Finlayson (GWS 123k)

Did some changes lat night, still $455,200 to play around. Trying to minimise on having inflated priced rookies. Back: Gone with 2-1-3 I bellieve Laird and Hibbo will be Top 6 defenders by end of season. Touhy will be a keeper he'll score around the same last year he loves to run up ground and kick a goal now and then CD loves that. Rookies will depend on who gets named, surely Naughton is a certain starter. Laird, Hibbo, Touhy Naughton, Murray, O'connor E: Keeffe, Murphy Possible: Coffield, Doedee Mids: Gone with 5-0-3 Not gonna take any chances with any… Read more »

Looks good, which Brayshaw is in your mids on field? And which is a possible addition?
Also I'm doubtful Darcy Fogarty will play enough to make us money. Look at the guys the Crows buried in the SANFL lately – Greenwood, Ellis-Yolmen, Doedee, Wigg (now at GCS) all deserved a debut way earlier than they received one.

SCdonkey
Guest

Andrew Brayshaw(Freo), yeah we are very thin with rookies up fwd. Christensen may still slide at F5 and have 1 Rookie on field. We'll see who gets a run or not.

Oh i see i doubled Brayshaw. For Possible could be Brodie

TOPHAWK1
Guest
TOPHAWK1

Not a bad side at all Doncs! I have the same blokes at D1 AND D2. They are must haves IMO. Tuohy is a nice POD. Should serve you well. The rookies look good, but I prefer Doedee over O'Connor though. Your midfield right on the money. Love the Zerrett pick. The rooks are the same as mine. I am running with NankerGawn as well. Kruezer is an upgrade target later. Your forward line is potentially your achilles heel and perhaps needs another look. I reckon you need to find room for one premo such as Heeney, Billings or Devon… Read more »

SCdonkey
Guest

Thanks TH

At the moment the rookies i have listed will depend on who gets a run in round 1 will change later on.

I like how Taylor played last year(my Crouch of 2017), and he's shown me enough both JLT games to slot him in my team.

Rayner is certainly another rook to consider up fwd, can't wait for the team line up in two weeks.

Out of the 4 mid price, 2 maybe 3 will be keepers. Last season i started with 3 premos and ended up with 1 as keeper. Wasted cash and trades, this season i think mid price players is the way to go up forward.

How do you plan on trading a forward to Danger with no mid/fwd swing?

Derek
Guest

that will be Sicily.

Finnius

Cull a forward to a non-playing rookie for the loophole and then upgrade a mid rookie to Danger

Lazza
Guest
Lazza

If you are planning to trade under performing fwds then naturally their price will have dropped. Using your $160k bank and a fallen fwd doesn’t add up to the price of Danger. Will take multiple trades … unless you wait for 7or 8 weeks… and will still need minimum of 2 trades.

Alright, I have spent every moment on my team, quit my job and moved to an isolated place near 100km from Wagga Wagga to focus on my supercoach team.

Why the nank selection? Also a big fan of the Parker pick. Solid team! Not sold on Fogarty and waterman with tex and jjk to come back in even if they get named round one it would suck to have them play two games then the big boys come back in and you got two stanky rookies doing 0 for you

Tyruddanaut
Guest

Nank was the only other well performing Ruck in the JLT

Derek
Guest
Derek

having kelly and Coniglio seems too much GWS midfield to me. There are so many of them i just worry they will be taking points away from each other. Hooper and Griffin still to come in.

i think Kelly will do similar to last year, but that is what you are paying for, can't see much upside for him with so much competition. Same with Coniglio, will average 100, so a bit of cash to be made, but not a long term option

Tyruddanaut
Guest
Tyruddanaut

Coniglio averaged 112.5 over JLT with a high of 130 and a low of 95. If he keeps that up, or even takes 5 average off, he's a keeper. Josh Kelly averaged 122 with consistent scoring, 127 and 117.Look at the Sydney midfield of 2016. All averaged 110+

LUKE

I'd Trade out Danger for another mid rook (Constable). T Kelly to M7. Then you can upgrade all your middling players to Ubers

Tyruddanaut
Guest
Tyruddanaut

I'm holding Danger and hoping he becomes a POD. He's too valuable and expensive to bring in later in the season and I see too much value in the midpricers I have. Coniglio averaged highly 2 years ago and only dropped due to injury and the same with Parker who had a very successful JLT series, averaging 113 points.

Carl
Guest
Carl

You think Coniglio will ave 110? Otherwise you’ll most likely have to trade him out. He’d probably need 105 minimum to keep

Pat
Guest

Would some thoughts on my team, especially some of the POD's (I'll list them at the bottom). B: Laird, McGovern, Savage, Naughton, O'Shea, Murray (Doedee, Finlayson) M: Danger, Titch, Fyfe, Beams, Cripps, Armo, Brayshaw (Fre), Banfield (Kelly, Barry, Holman) R: Martin, Gawn (Cameron) F: Billings, Smith, Petracca, Sicily, Tom Bell?, Keeffe (Fritsch, Ryan) 103K in the bank. I originally had Christensen in at F5, but Bell looking to be the better player at the same price tag, and a major POD! If Danger doesn't play, I will mostly likely put Zerret or the likes in and upgrade O'Shea or Naughton… Read more »

Sam_01
Guest
Sam_01

Sicily is a lock, like the look of bell as opposed to Christensen, I’m going in with him because fwd rookies are terrible. Beams will most likely worsen his scoring though

Tyruddanaut
Guest
Tyruddanaut

I don't think Bell will go that well (Haha it rhymes) if you're looking at him for a keeper…… stop. If you're looking at him for cash gen….. maybe? Before their bye, they play Essendon, Sydney, Giants, Richmond, Adelaide, Port, Melbourne and St.Kilda and they only have the teams of Collingwood, Hawthorn, Bulldogs and North for compensation. it's why I'm looking at Zorko, and potentially Beams, as an upgrade target. Other cash Cows at that range include Josh Dunkley (94 JLT avg.), Mason Cox (104), Darcy MacPherson (90.5 avg. and my favourite because of their easy line-up and early bye),… Read more »

Probably to many mid price in the forward, bit to much risk in there. No guarantee any of them will be in the top 6 so if your going for the best squad it’s a lot of trade burn waiting to happen.

Tyruddanaut
Guest
Tyruddanaut

Make sure you have the player you think will score the highest, and two in the top 10 for each line-up. I'm talking about the forward line of course where personally I only think 2 will make top 10 and the rest top 15.
Hurley didn't have a great off-season and that was reflected in the JLTby scoring 72 points, he is a key defender also which is pseudonymous with unpredictability

If you want to spend the money Brayshaw from freo looks very solid. Also definitely not sold on Lycett he got destroyed by Sandi and I can picture him getting smashed around by other rucks. That being said he does have a good run ruckman wise to start the season. But he plays witts, kruze, sandy, Ryder in a row from round 4 could be 4 rounds of sub 70s waiting to happen haha

Ben
Guest
Ben

Looking like a solid team, just a few points of concern: – Not sure is O'Shea is best 22 at Carlton as of yet, we are stacked for talent in the backline and there are about 3 or 4 players vying for that last starting spot in our DEF. I'd swap him for Naughton who is a similar price. – Harrison Wigg is out injured, so he will definitely not be named round 1. A good downgrade target later into the season though once he's on the bubble! – I would be wary of Lycett, as he got absolutely destroyed… Read more »

I think you can play one more rookie in defence and one less rookie up forward. Shaw out for a rookie – Finlayson , Naughton or O’Shea. One more forward. If you play Finlayson you could have your choice of premium forwards. If you remain a little concerned about rookies down back, then play Sicily or TMac in the forwards so you can switch them back as a corrective

Blaknight

Don't pick Hanley, did his shoulder yesterday so will be off most peoples lists now.
Banfield would be a better option over Dow
Sandilands is a huge risk but could pay off if he stays on the park because no one can beat him still

Ben
Guest
Ben

I agree with removing Dow, so I have done just that.

Sandi is a big risk every year, but I'm praying he lasts until round 11 so I can upgrade him to Ryder.

And I'm not overly concerned with Hanley's injury, as he wasn't too fussed when it popped out, and they managed to poop it back in relatively quickly, so I reckon he'll still line up round one. Of course if he isn't lining up round one I'll explore other options.

Gibbs is a nice POD, I like when a seasoned player changes clubs, kind of like a mid life crisis, it can re ignite their game. You know he can play, nice move. Also Jaeger and Armo is a ballsy move that should be a winning move barring injury, I'm considering doing the same.

I've got a couple of ideas for my team this season, depending on how Dangerfield pulls up for round 1. Team With Danger: DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Tuohy. Rookies atm are Coffield, Naughton, Doedee (E: Murray, Finlayson) MID: Dangerfield, Martin, T.Mitchell, Zorko, Fyfe, Shuey. Rookies are: Dow, Fogarty (E: T.Kelly, D.Barry, N.Holman) RUCK: Gawn, Sandilands E: Cameron FWD: Kennedy, Billings, Petracca. Rookies: Stephenson, Higgins, Fritsch (E: Garlett, Ryan) If Danger isn't named, there'd be the following changes: Dangerfield to Oliver Sandilands to Martin Petracca to Dahlhaus/Daniher?

Ablett, Martin, Treloar, Barlow and Parish are all very bold choices – every one of them could end up screwing your season.
Keep some for PODs if thats whats important to you but I suggest trading some of them for safer picks, such as Fyfe

Richard
Guest
Richard

I agree with you in regards to barlow and parish. However I don’t see why the others are risky. Ablett is a guaranteed 115+ average as long as he stays on the park, and I believe that a player like ablett is worth wasting a trade on if he gets injured. Martin has played a solid 2 games in the JLT and he looks like a similar if not better option to grundy or goldstein, who will both have backup ruckman. Treloar is a beast and the only thing keeping him back from a higher average last year was disposal… Read more »

Guest
nankthetank

Ablett was guarenteed 115+ when he was at the suns, where the umpires had more touches than any other suns midfielder. At geelong he was to compete with danger, selwood, duncan and menegola. Thats a lot of elite players.
Not to mention the problem with actually staying on the park. He hasn't played over 15 games since 2013, so while even if somehow he manages to still score massively with all the competition, is it really worth having a donut next to an uber premo for 7 games?

Still considering Armitage for Duggan and playing 4 rooks in defence.

Also toying with Petracca down to Christensen and taking Duggan up to Howe. Just not sure of having both Christensen and Bell

Watson is my loophole, hoping he gets games later in the season.

Armitage for Duggan is a good move, plenty of Def. rookie options this season that you can alternate on and off the bench.

nankthetank
Guest
nankthetank

Forwards in my opinion should be the opposite to your team – predominately rookies. I have Buddy, D Smith and then rookies. That was you can get a much needed extra premo in your midfield.
Christensen hasn't done enough in JLT for me to be worth starting either.

Armitage for duggan seems like a good idea to me.

I think you are right. I am ok with 4 mid pricers on the Fwd line. Maybe all 4 become keepers, but if I can keep 2 or 3 then that would be a good outcome. Sicily can go up to defence if a forward rookie appears, or I am upgrading 2 defence rookies.

Savage costs 480k. Brayshaw is 316k . The difference is pretty significant and Brayshaw is DPP. For me Savage is a no because I reckon he is too expensive. Brayshaw is on the maybe list but concussion regulars like him worry me because if he gets a decent smack in the head he won't just have a week off he'll be gone for months if not the season for a full head replacement

R: Gawn, Lycett (Cameron)

Rocky at this stage as a POD in the mids but may drop out to replace Lycett at R2 and like everyone else tossing up how to get Danger in later or now.

I’m liking your team nank. However I think that you’d be better off getting rid of one or two of your uber promos and strengthing up your forward line as the rookies in that line are the weakest and are not guaranteed games by any stretch

I'm hoping so, because althoigh I just replaced Cripps with Heeney, I don't want my midfield to be any stronger, I've always had the mindset that forward line should be the weakest.
Are there any rookies that i should add to it?

He's right Alan, Grundy will share Ruck duties with Cox and his points will suffer, maybe not Kreuzer but maybe Martin or Nank.

Option 3. Nank is under priced for what he can do and will be fitter this year.

You could also free up cash by going Mid price crazy in the FWD Line. Dump Heeney and put in players like Walters, Lambert, McLean etc

Nank, Banfield, Devon smith it is! Also like Walters but it's a hard choice to put him over Heeney, will consider. Also entirely forgot about Zac Giles-Langdon, would you advise getting him in for a FWD rookie I have right now if he is named?

Dow to Brayshaw/Brodie, don't know much about Lavender, Myres or Tiziani so all I can say is keep an eye on round 1 teams and adjust accordingly.
Would also steer away from McGovern (instead Laird, Hibberd, Hurley) and would choose anyone over McLean (Mid price like Petracca or Sicily). Must get Danger in if named so id part with Zorko or Merrett in that case at risk of your cash in bank.

As I say nothing set in concrete..Giles -Langdon I like the look of is a rookie from Gws and I think he has good job security and if he can average between 65/75 per game then he will make some good cash and ready for upgrading after round 6 as when all good rookies will be ready to cull by then and you can start painting the fence

Nice looking line up. Just watch out for Kruezer with his ankle problem, might set him back a little, query he'll be 100% round1 and 2. His price may drop sharply within a few weeks. Once he's over his niggles he'll no doubt be a no.1 ruck contender.

Hi Ranger I have Brander also but linked him to sicily Keefe is too inconsistent for mine .Also though Higgins wont play early it is a good move as a temporary loop m /f and when he arrives he will stay..

Hey Raver, I reckon you need to improve your Fwd set up, too many rookies that have no job security. The Def. line is good, rookies are mostly ok, personally I haven't seen enough of O'Shea to include especially at that price.

I would dump Coniglio for either Armitage or JOM and use the extra cash upgrading a Fwd rookie to Bell or Christensen.

Raver_dave
Guest
Raver_dave

Cheers for the input mate.
I like the look of cogs and would like to hang onto him if possible.

To make the cash I swapped Hibberd to L.Jones, English to L.Ryan and Rioli to Christenson

So team is now:

Def: Hurley, Laird, Jones, Naughton, O'Shea, Doedee (Finlayson, Murray)

Mid: Dangerfield, Martin, M.Crouch, Fyfe, Cripps, Coniglio, Brayshaw, Brodie (Barry, Kelly, Holman)

Ruc: Gawn, Nank (Cameron)

Fwd:Heeny, Billings, Petracca, Fogarty, Christenson, Fritsch (Ryan, Garlett)

Leaves me with $62,900 left over, I would like this to be a bit bigger. Maybe down grading O'Shea to a cheaper rookie?

Thoughts??

Nice move Hibberd to Liam Jones, Hibberd will probably be top 6 defender but you'll more than likely be able to get him cheaper later on.

O'Shea to L.Murphy from the Crows will give you an extra $60K for the kitty. Keep an eye on round 1 starting teams and keep asking questions on this forum for updates on rookies.

He might see plenty of the pill because it s going to be in his vicinity a lot. If he can get it and do something useful with it then he'll be a decent pick and probably win a Syd Barker

Right now I don't trust the forward rookies at all. The players I'm least sure about are Naitanui and Hanley. Some of the players I'm keenly looking at are Naughton, O'Connor, Lycett, and Coffield. Got 24k spare right now.

If McVeigh is named round 1 I'm going to stay away from him, I want to have him but with Rampe, Newman and McVeigh all there to steal his points I've gone with Touhy who is just a bit safer for the same price.

Danger, tmitchell, fyfe, bont / pendles? 🤔, cripps, coniglio, brayshaw, Barry, (banfield, Kelly, Holman)

I think if you going to use someone to ride up to grab Danger then I think Coniglio looms as the man to take for the ride. Like the Ryan inclusion. Really starting to warm up to that myself. Savage vs Ryan for me ATM. Ryan has a game purpose built for SC. Can we finally trust Ross!!! Not sure how much value there is in Tom Bell. Did have that 90 season. But everything else sub 70

I do like the look of that first forward line. I think it's the line that will give the poorest rookie scores. Loading up there seems sensible. Very similar to how I'm currently structured. The conditions yesterday were horrid. I'd ignore Bundy's score. He can go 80+. I'm trying to find a way to have him at F6

Not a huge fan on my fwds, especially rookie depth and job security. Not sure if its worth spending the 600k on kruez vs a cheaper Jacobs – even though i want the set and forget rucks and think Kruez is the best in the league. intending on using Cogs as a stepping stone to Dusty at some stage instead of using two trades with omeara or Arma.

Nice one vindog. As good as any midfield going. Gawn is a must have. Beyond that your choice is as valid as any other. Not too sure about Fritsch job security. He may very well get a gig for round one while Viney is out. He might just get a taste and then be spelled before he delivers any financial gain. Melb have a bit of a history with doing this, Hannan last year and Oliver the year before

I like both and both have been in and out of my team for each other It's just the factor of McVeigh, Rampe and now Newman who all play the same role and take his points In JLT2 Lloyd only scored around 73 with McVeigh and Rampe out of the team and Newman scored 100. I know that Touhy only scored 78 or so in JLT2 but he had 28 possesions with 21 of the kicks. I heard his score was low because of the strong wind which caused his D.E to be low I just think that Touhy would… Read more »

Ballsy move. Cox will have erratic scores. For a bloke who's new to the game he's an accurate kick. I'll give him that. Not sure the Bruen manoeuvre will work here. But it might

Last year I had Goldstein. After two rounds I traded down to Witts, banked a LOOOOT of money. And, like most others, I traded Witts up when he was fully fattened. This year I don't like any of the premo rucks outside of Gawn. I'm tempted by Lycett but Nic Nat's return could be just around the corner. Thinking I might start Goldy again. If he stinks it up and Lycett plays well I could pull the same maneuver. Only one more trade than just starting Lycett (and upgrading him later), but less risk. If Goldy is back to anywhere… Read more »

I pulled the same move last year. The cash allowed me to grab MacRae & Hanners cheap. MacRae was a great pick up. Hanners belted out 5 tonnes in a row then turned into a train wreck of a pick. Preuss will impact Goldy's output

Steeeve

He will but what do ya do?
Grundy has Cox. Martin has Archie. Kreuzer is ecpe1nsive, has only had one good season and is injury prone, Ryder has the early bye, Jacobs is not SC friendly anymore.

I'm thinking the same with Whitfield if Danger doesn't start. Going to be a good player and new role looks SC friendly, will score well but maybe not quite a keeper. If he goes really well he stays, otherwise I bring in Danger.

I think you have to have Brayshaw at M6,he seems the best of the high priced rookies,plus they seem keen to play him.Not sure about LDU,he didn't do much in the preseason games and he's one of the high priced rookies,Coffield might be a better fit plus he's dpp,and could swing with Finlayson in the back line.Also glad to see you spelt Keeffe right,a lot of people have been leaving out one of the fs.

Weitering can play looked very good.Savage, Taberner and Bell killed it for consistency in the JLT.What i like is they are very good value and all will have an important role to play.Also with Fogarty Adelaide moved him back to stop Ports run.

what's interesting tho on average from the JLT this team scored 2,400 taking into account the probability of danger scoring 300 as cap with a low variance of 10. not sure what other teams achieved here but yes its JLT and consistency is a game of chance at this time of the year as some variables do have past history as you pointed out but we do need some POD's.just the right ones.The present form is all we have to ride the wave however the extra cash helps to ride the wave all the way to the shore.

FWD – Heeney, Billings, Petracca, Curnow, Stephenson, Ryan (Ahern, Garlett)

$63,900 in the bank.

My concerns:
– Is Yeo good enough for D1?
– Petracca & Curnow together? Or should I back one of them only? (leaning towards Petracca)
– Will Kreuzer get up for round 1?
– And of course, Dangerfield. Hang on in hope of a quick recovery or start planning how to get him later?

Very young… Would perhaps look to go a few more developed players. A few risks is fine but you have ALOT.

If Danger is not playing round one i won't have him and this is why. For him not to be playing round one he must be a bit more than minor.Having trouble with hammies in the past myself you never come back 100% straight away you need to ease back into it. If he plays round 2 he may not score well but he will probably play forward more so he is not running as much.Therefore his high price tag will drop after his third game.if you have cash i would pick him up then as he will probably take… Read more »

Keep in mind that if his 1st game is round 2, and he does score poorly, that score will barely affect his price because it will only stay in his rolling average for 1 round.

Some rookies in my team are placeholders and haven't even played JLT so please ignore. What I'm worried about: Lack of cash generation from rookies means I'm thin in the… Read more »
