Community, today is the day.

Pre-season games kick off tonight, with the first bounce between Essendon and Carlton a chance to see Patrick Cripps and Zach Merrett go head to head.

Boy am I excited. Lek has to go lie down at the thought of seeing his boys in action.

But we want to see your pre-JLT sides. What are you tossing up? Who are you keeping a close eye on in tonight’s game, and across the board?

I’m looking very closely at Joey Daniher, Zach Merrett, Williamson, all the Carlton rookies and Aaron Francis. And all the rest of them, I guess. I’m too excited to think.

That is an interesting side! I will not comment on the rooks as these are likely to change subject to JLT form and round 1 selections. I think you have spent to cash in your forward line. IMO turn either Robbie Gray or Toby Greene into a rook and turn Goldy into Grundy. If you dump Gray, you should have enough cash to turn Sweet into a decent r2? Fort at r2 is just to risky for mine. Most of your premos are fine. Not sold on Shiel and Crippsy not there would keep me awake at night. All in… Read more »

Gday Hawk thanks mate. The plan is to pick Cripps up early in the year, I'm thinking (hoping) he starts slow and bring that price down. I reckon they will throw him forward a fair chunk, Carlton have a shitload of mids and most can't play forward. If Carlton improve this year or start the year well, i've stuffed the Cripps move up. Sorry but Robbie Gray will stay in my side, should get more mid time. And if not he is one of a few small fwds that can still avg 100 playing up fwd. Started last year brilliantly.… Read more »

I like robbie gray this year but if he has similar role to previous years, he will throw in a dud score and you can get him for cheaper. So to start off the Grundy gofund me you could downgrade him. Also dont rate Shiel that highly. The post about him on this site hits the nail on the head. Hasn't proven he can produce the 105-110 needed to be a keeper, and can't see him being making enough money to justify the pick, you could downgrade him to Miles which should give you the money for Grundy.

Wow 4 deep in the fwd line, I like it.
I'd look at downgrading McGrath and some of the higher priced rookies across the lines in order to afford Grundy

Get rid of T Greene, no news to indicate he needs to be in your side at the start of the season.

Hey DR, First, I'd get rid of Shiel for any of Merrett, Steele, et el, … Shiel is not Top 20 let alone Top 10 MID. (He wasn't in the top 50 last year).
Greene wont play R1, so need to look at Worpel et el..
If looking for a R2 stepping stone – check out English.
Otherwise, fairly solid.

The FranklinShow

I like the team the only thing is your fwds are weak if Greene doesn't get back to 2017 form early in the year. Starting Fyfe & Kelly with their history of injuries is dangerous. No reason why you couldn't move one or even both to a Yeo & Dusty. This could free up enough cash to potentially look at moving Greene to a $500k fwd. Backline strong – I personally think Lloyd is to expensive and a defender at the $500k level maybe a better option – Hurn/Z Williams/Ryan etc. Great structure with no real midpricers bar Greene who… Read more »

Hey guys, any thoughts on my team appreciated. 100k left over

Def: Laird, Whitfield, Witherden, Williams, Collins, Wilkie (Hore, Wigg)

Ruc: Grundy, Goldy (fort)
Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Mundy, Setterfield, Corbett, Cavarra (Burgess, Mozzie)

Obviously rookies are placeholders. Warming to Walsh and can slot him in but only leaves 21k. Also debating on taking out a defense premo (most likely whitfield) to put another fwd premo in. Any thoughts appreciated guys!

fatboyfat7
Guest
fatboyfat7

Robertson might be worth considering down back, the extra 240k over Whitfield and 100k left over cash would get you that extra premo up front…?

Wigg is out for the season too FYI

Why would he need another premo up forward?

He's the one who mentioned it replacing Whitfield with another premo forward….

TommyC99
Guest
TommyC99

My logic is that fwd rookies seem scarce (ata this stage) and defense rookies have been quite good in past seasons.So getting Dev Smith or even a mid price such as toby Greene would mean 1 less fwd rookie i need to rely on.

Locked and Loaded
Guest
Locked and Loaded

Scarce? I think theres a few quality rookies up forward…

A lot of people running with a similar base structure of 3-5-2-3 keepers and then putting in a midpricer in def, fwd or mids.

Rucks: Grundy, Pierce (Fort)
Fwd: Danger, Henney, Menegola, Dunkley, Setterfield, Cavarra (Parker, Young)

Risking it in the R2 spot. Walsh could drop to a $123 rookie which would give me enough cash in bank that I could go Pierce to Mumford at Round 3 if Pierce wasn't working out.
Caved and picked Lloyd despite the high price.
I've got a few higher priced rookies too but I'm ok with it. Merrett may become Taylor Adams after JLT.

Thoughts?

What if Walsh is going well and R2 rookie busts? Id go Menegola or Dunkley to Rankine and upgrade R2

I'm rolling the dice on R2. Confident on Pierce getting the early games and will be first upgrade target.

What do you expect Rankine to score/average? At 200k I'd be wanting to see a minimum of 75 average, just don't know if he'll get to that at the Suns.

The Ranger

I'm hoping Treloar will be the beneficiary of Beams arrival Frank.
I'll be watching JLT keenly to see how that Pies midfield lines up but you would think that Beams gets used inside allowing Treloar to be more outside where he can use his pace.

Hi Derek, I was thinking the same thing but now I've come to the realization that it doesn't matter where Whitfield plays….I think he will average 100 anywhere, even with a fairly average season (for his standard)

Williams did play the 2 finals, which saw Lachie play more wing and he scored 2 130's

Having said that, I do have Lloyd too

Sharkmove_King

Ive gone 4 deep + Miles in the midfield so I don't mind that.

But, for me it seems a bit light on for premos. I've counted 12 + Miles & Roberton. I'm gonna assume Henry is Heeney. Do you have $$ left over? Because it seems you've left out some of the more expensive premiums so you should be able to afford 13 of them plus the 2 mid pricers.

Yep Henry is Heeney, auto correct. I’ve got $170k at the moment to play with.

Fair enough. $170k is alot of coin to have spare, but having said that we're a long way from Round 1 so plenty will change.

Really surprised by the lack of love for Libba in the team’s posted so far. Similar price to Roberton. If you think that Libba will outscore Roberton, then essentially better value? And more def rookies than midfield right now. Plus a few articles about how Libba is burning up the track.

Maybe the switch to Walsh has seen Libba drop from a few teams, but maybe worth relooking at Libba as a value selection in his own right.

Sharkmove_King
Guest
Sharkmove_King

Fair call Keen but I wouldn't compare a defenders scoring potential to a midfielders. The midfield has better premiums and rookies every year. If Libba was a def or fwd he would be in every team.

Having said that I'm not completely sold on Libba. Yes, he was once a midfield beast, but when was that? 2014? Alot has changed since then, he has done 2 acl's and the games gotten quicker. Whilst I see him rotating through the midfield, I do see him playing alot forward this year.

Nah mate, no way in hell Libba plays forward this year. Bloke is a pure inside mid, can't play anywhere else. Will probably be the one mainstay in the Dogs engine room along with Macrae.

Not sold on short as a keeper, and if you have quaynor I think he needs to be on field. Can’t really see preuss making much money unless Gawn gets injured, can understand why you want a cheap R2 though, R2 and F3 the hardest positions to pick

I've been eyeing him off throughout the preseason Mikkkky but like Tommy says, the tag is still a big concern.
No doubt he'll put up some big scores but he'll throw in the odd spud too.
In '17 when he averaged 110 he also put up scores of 77, 70, 66, 50 and even a 36.
He has a high ceiling but also a bloody low floor.

A lot of risk in this team Dan. Hall, Miles, B Smith, Dalhaus, Cousins. At least 50% of these guys will burn you and will cost trades at some point. Only 3 pure mid premos is too light on in my opinion. If it goes well for you you’ll win the $50k tho I guess.

I think you need another premo in the mids Ian.
Libba should be at M5 or 6.

Ian
Guest

Yes, might have to slightly downgrade a couple of premiums.
eg: Merrett to Martin. Any suggestions for the other one?

You've gone 4 deep in the fwds and def one of those prob has to go.
Just my take tho mate, we all have our own preferred structure.

Cavarra didn’t make the cut for jlt 1. Forward rookies starting to look thin on the ground.

Always the worst bloody line isn't it?

60k left over,

wondering if i have to many uber premiums?

Do i need Sam Collins/ Jack Macrae / Another Premo or Mid Price Def??

Sam_01
Guest

Solid team, few injury question marks over it though through Oliver Fyfe, like the Dunkley selection but unsure where he will be played so I’ve been passed on him

Sam_01

Been flicking through a few teams, why is there no love for Mr Walters? I mean I’m not complaining just think he is better value than the likes of Mundy and will hopefully up his mid minutes a touch and even if he is forward freo have some targets up there now which will hopefully help him in that area, anyhow BACK: Whitfield, Witherden, Williams, Smith, Quaynor, Clark (McKay, Watson) MID: Cripps, Neale, Treloar, Martin, Sloane, Miles, Walsh, Duursma (Bewley, Hind, Gubbons) RUCK: Grundy, Goldy FWD: Danger, Heeny, Walters, Blakey, Setterfield, Schultz (Parker cavarra) 60k in the bank so bit… Read more »

No Gawn or grundy? Mid price madness in the backline. Who knows could work, but I can see you running out of trades before getting to full premo

I like it! Quite different to mine and many others methinks
B Crouch is injury prone
Greene is a talented d&@[email protected] that will miss games
But….. nothing ventured nothing gained
If you get lucky with those two …….

This is my final pre-season team which will be modified next week as teams come through.

B: Sicily, Z.Williams, B.Smith, Scrimshaw, S.Collins, J.Clark

M: Macrae, Oliver, Neale, Coniglio, B.Crouch, Liberatore, Miles, Setterfield

R: Grundy, English

F: Dangerfield, Heeney, Mclean, Rozee, Blakey, M.Parker

Apart from the midfield I've done every other line as half prems/ half rookies. Well, almost.

The important thing is this team still leaves me with $375K in the bank.

I'll either upgrade English to Goldstein or Westhoff, or upgrade Miles to Cripps or Fyfe and still have about 100K to tweak the backs/forwards.
