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 all though, it is a decent team. Good luck mate!


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.
Toby Greene is interesting. 1st final last year he dominated, 2nd final back to being shit.
If the 4 fwd premiums don't let me down that should be a fair advantage midway through the year.
I'm not sold on my rucks though they will change, gotta keep an eye on Archie Smith Darcy Cameron and Zac Clarke.
I reckon one rookie ruck will avg 90 this year like Nank or Lobbe did early on in their careers.
Happy to go with one rookie in the rucks to see how the season starts with the new rules.
McGrath will be out after JLT if he goes back to the backline.
Shiel i'm suss on, Cripps for him would be ideal.


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.


Thanks Lazza. Has Greene been ruled out for round1?


No his ready to go


I read the same Stirlsy, that he's fit and ready to go, they're just being a bit cautious with him so he's right for round 1.


I reasonably content with everything at he moment but would love to be picked apart and to be given some questions to ask myself.

J. Lloyd, R. Laird, L. Whitfield, S. Collins, I. Quaynor, C. Wilkie.
H. Jones, M. Hire

P. Cripps, C. Oliver, J. Kelly, N. Fyfe, M. Crouch, S. Walsh, T, Thomas, M. Gibbons
C. Constable, B. Bewley, T. Atkins

B. Grundy, T, Goldstein
D. Fort

P. Dangerfield, I, Heeney, T. Greene, I. Rankine, W. Setterfield, B. Cavarra
T. Stengle, T. Wilkinson


Nice balance overall, might want to weigh your options about Fyfe/Greene/crouch's durability as keepers 🙂


Maybe question where you could fit any POD's in? Seems a very cookie-cutter team (which can have its perks!)

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 is a fallen premium.


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

Def: Laird, Whitfield, Witherden, Williams, Collins, Wilkie (Hore, Wigg)
Mid: Macrae, Neale, Martin, Crouch, Zerrett, Duursma, Constable, Gibbons (Hind, Valente, Bewley)
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!


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

Locked and Loaded

Why would he need another premo up forward?


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


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

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


Im sure there will be quite a few pop up, but in my opinion the defense is showing more promise in terms of playing rookies


Yeah mate Robbo is on my radar after his performance in practice match. Would like to see his role when Webster is back though to justify his selection


Far too many players starting with W in your defence

The Ranger

Looks good Tommy.
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.


Def: Lloyd, Witherden, Williams, Robertson, Quaynor, Duursma (Hore, Wilkie)
Mid: Macrae, Cripps, Yeo, Martin, Merret, Walsh, Caldwell, Butters, (Bewley, Hind, Gibbons)
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.


Locked and Loaded

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.


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

Havcen't seen any of Rankine tbh, what do you see him scoring? At 200k I'd be wanting a 75 point average, hard to do it that team.

Locked and Loaded

Fair enough I’d be struggling to sleep when others have two solid rucks but I like the confidence all the best

The Ranger

14 possible keepers is nice Fatboy but that ruck division would give me sleepless nights.
You seem to have a plan in place for it tho.
Adams is gonski apprently.
Good luck mate.

RUC: Grundy, Goldstein (Fort)

FWD: Danger, Heeney, T. Kelly, Burgess, Petruccelle, Cavarra (Drew, Parker)

Overall, is it worth it to skimp a bit elsewhere to have Zac Williams as D4?
Rookies subject to change of course, let me know how low I'm going to finish 🙂

Rookies depend on JLT of course, I'm a bit bullish on keeping Rozee/Walsh/Rankine, obviously know they're a bit on the pricey side, but interested to see where I could do better, thanks team!

My theory is that mid pricers are possible keepers as fwds or backs but very rarely/never work out as mids. Any thoughts or help appreciated

Could possibly downgarde macrae to oliver, and martin to a rookie or dunkley to wingard to make duursma/burgess into roberton/witherden, thoughts?


I'm watching Jok, Setterfield and Gibbons very closely tonight.


Def. Williams McGrath Smith Roberton duursma Wilkie (mcKay, hore)
Mid. MacRae Cripps Martin Crouch Adams Libba Walsh constable (hind bewley sparrow)
Ruck. Grundy Gawn (Fort)
Fwd. Danger Heeney Mundy Walker Setterfield Parker (petrucelle cavarra)

Smith/McGrath has been Whitfield/Collins many times. Still tossing up on that.

Feels one Uber premium short in the mids, but the doubts on Kelly, Fyfe and Oliver have been well documented here. Probably is Neale. Overall mids are ok, but not fully satisfied

Walker is a stepping stone. Adelaide draw for 4-7 might see him explode. If Scott is right about the new rules creating bigger thrashings, then this could be a Bruyn Manoeuvre

Welcome your feedback


Adams out for minimum 8 weeks
The dramas of supercowch have already started

The Ranger

Looks a bit light in def to me Keen, not sure all 4 of them will be top 10 defenders.
Don't mind the Walker pick as POD.


Thanks Ranger. I think you are right. Whitfield and Collins in. McGrath and Smith out.

Zerrett for Adams.

Unsure on whether to drop a def for a cheaper option and unsure on Crouch, 100k in bank
Cheers guys


I'd keep the defenders, I think there'll be a lot of high scoring defenders this year. Stef Martin isn't guaranteed the #1 ruck role at Brisbane, I'd be using your extra cash to upgrade him to Gawn or Grundy if you can


Was thinking of downgrading Goldy then upgrading Martin

The Ranger

Elliot's a bloody risky pick Adam.
If it comes off you'll be laughing but it's too big an IF for me.


Yeah I know I’ll watch JLT and if he’s good he stays otherwise maybe rankine


Leave your thoughts guys –

DEF: Lloyd, Sicily, Whitfield, Roberton, Duursma, Hore (Answerth, Watson (Loophole))
MID: Cripps, Fyfe, Kelly, Neale, JOM (POD) , Walsh, Constable, Drew (Bewley, Hind, Gibbons)
RUCK: Grundy, Goldy (Fort)
FWD: Danger, Smith, Heeney, Setterfield, McAdam, Parker (Cavarra, Wilkinson)

30k in bank

The Ranger

First team I've seen with JOM Badger, you'll look like a genius if it comes off.


Good to be back. I've tried to avoid too much tinkering pre JLT.
Would love some feedback

2k bank

DEF: Lloyd, Crisp, Williams, D.Moore, Collins, Duursma (Wilkie, Hore)

FWD: Danger, Heeney, Darling, Setterfield, Parker, Cavarra (Burgess, Pettruccelle)


The Ranger

This weeks team…92K in the bank.

Whitfield, Witherden, Williams + rookies
Macrae, Cripps, Kelly, Treloar, Dusty, Libba + rookies
Grundy, Goldie + Fort
Danger, Heeney, Mundy + rookies

13 keepers, 1 stepping stone and the rest cash cows.


Love the Mundy selection, could be a great POD.
Dunno about Treloar, will Beams impact his scoring??


Mundy said in interview yesterday, he is preparing as if he will be 100% midfield this year

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.


I’ve changed Whitfield back to Lloyd. I’m not sure where he will play this year

The Ranger

Can't bring myself to pay that much for Lloyd and I think Whitfield will get more mid time this season.
I'm hoping that wherever he plays he'll be a top 10 defender.


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


I'm pretty settled on this team, however I may change some rookies depending on JLT form and Rd 1 selection:

DEF: J Lloyd, R Laird, L Whitfield, Z Williams, S Collins, M Hore (C Wilkie, T Watson)

MID: P Cripps, L Neale, S Coniglio, D Martin, B Crouch, S Walsh, B Bewley, N Hind (R West, W Drew, M Gibbons)

RUC: B Grundy, T Goldstein (D Fort)

FWD: P Dangerfield, D Smith, I Heeney, W Setterfield, M Parker, B Cavarra (L Schultz, B Woodcock)

Only got $800 left in the bank


I don’t mind the BCrouch pick. is he the Coniglio of 2018?


If, and it's a big if, B Crouch can remain injury free he'll be a must have player who'll average 100+

The Ranger

Nice team Frank, good luck mate


If he was $50k cheaper I’d be tempted

Menegola is a query with all the new players the Cats have bought in similar positions , I’m tempted also just dunno , very good player though

I’ll only post my premos and mid-pricers as rookies are too subject to change. Be keen to hear thoughts.

Cripps, Crouch, Duncan, Dusty, Miles

Grundy, Goldy

Danger, Henry, Worpel.

Cheers lads

The Ranger

Bit light in the mids for me Mick.
I think you need one more premo in there.


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.

Overall, I like the team. Duncan & Worpel are 2 well thought out pods who should increase their 2018 average (so underpriced)

78k left in the bank. Thoughts?

The Ranger

I like the Duncan pick Kev, a very reliable keeper.


I like it a lot. Good balance over all lines


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.


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.

First of all, Danger will be switched to FWD during season. Wanting a cheap R2 to upgrade to Grundy as first upgrade around $600k. Aaaand, few gun PODS who I think are cheap and still gonna end top 10.

Thoughts/constructive criticsim?


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


DEF: Lloyd, Z.Williams, Roberton, Hanley, Duursma, harry Jones (Burgess, Hore)

I see lloyd retaining the number 1 spot in defense, hoping williams will be the premo that he has shown he can be in the past and that roberton and hanley can reach previous heights.

MID: Macrae, Cripps, Bont, Dusty, Merrett, Walsh, Stocker, Hind (Bewley, Atkins, Gibbons)

Two uber premos, 3 undervalued Guns

Set and Forget

F1-F3 pretty cookie cutter so i thought i'd have a bit of fun and have a go at predicting a breakout candidate who i love to watch. Fisher is named on the wing tonight and i will be watching in person, hopefully he can consolidate my pick.


I like Zac Fisher. Classy and slick. I think he'll move into the $500k+ category at some point.
Keeping me up at night is Gawn vs Goldy….


HI all

What’s everyone’s opinion on Roary Sloane ??


Not sure he can be picked until he proves he can break a tag

The Ranger

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.


What does everyone think about jack viney


I think there are better options. Could be a good pod if you are really confident on him


Wingard to miss rd 1, reaggravated his calf, not looking good atm,


Hi JR Community, Im a bit late with my team but here goes…

Looks a bit light in the mids to me Rivo.
If you spent a bit less in the backline maybe you can get Miles to M6 and pick up another mid premo.


Anyone know why Fanfooty isn’t doing SC scores and only DT ?


They will be up in the morning.


I need to find a way to get Sam Walsh in my side right about now


Yep, take out Miles or Libba if you have them


He looks good Fin.

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 like the idea of taking a punt on Rocky.
I don't think Grundy will break the Cox hoodoo, but maybe Nank -> Gawn depending on how it plays out.


A trade is valued at approx 100k, IMO you have too many mid pricers / risks, good luck Jel


Z.Williams @ 408k or N.Newman @ 394k ? who is more SC relevant ?

You've gone 4 deep in the fwds and def one of those prob has to go.

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


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 of wiggle room for the rookies to play around with

dees 4 flag

I think that might change after today


lloyd laird williams smith rozee quaynor (duursma hore)
cripps fyfe kelly martin crouch walsh caldwell bewley ( valente hind gibbons)

danger heeney mundy rankine setterfield cavarra(burgess crocker)


Here goes ….

Cousins, Wash… Butters, Berry, Valente

Goldy, Lycett, Sweet

Danger, Heeny, McLean, Senterfield, Burgess, Cavarra.
McAdam, Parker.

Very interested in others analysis 😁


Sorry mcCluggage is Shead


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


Yes I have re jigged the side after more consideration.

Laird, Witherden, Williams, Newman, Smith, Collins
Jones, Hore

McRae , Neale, Coniglio, Crouch, Libber, Cousins.
Counstable, Bewley, Gibbons

Grundy, Goldy, Clarke.

Danger, Mundy, Wallis, Setterfield, Burgess, Balta.

Go Gaz

Hi all, resisted flooding the site with teams until at least the first JLT hit out. Thoughts on…..

DEF: Lloyd, Witherden, Smith, Williams, Clark, Hore INT: Jones, Wilkie
MID: Cripps, Coniglio, Sidey, Taranto, Crouch, Butters, Setterfield, Walsh INT: Bewley, Hind
RUCK: Grundy, Lycett INT: Sweet, Fort
FWD: Danger, Menegola, Heeney, Elliot, Drew, Parker INT: Petrucelle, Cottrell

Is it me or is it harder this year or do we say that every year LOL


DEF: Whitfield, Mills, Williams, Smith, Roberton, Scrimshaw INT: WILKIE, HORE.

MID: Cripps, Kelly, Neale, Martin, Brad Crouch, Walsh, Butters, Constable. INT: Valante, Hind, Gibbons.

RUCK: Grundy, Gawn, INT: Fort.

FWD: Danger, Heeney, Greene, Ainsworth, Setterfield, Drew. INT: Balta, Cavarra.

Thoughts & comments?


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 …….


Luke ryan, zac williams, witherden, newman, smith, rookies

Macrae, cripps, oliver, neale, walsh, rookies

Gawn and grundy, rookie

Danger, heeney, kennedy, elliott, rookies

83k bank

Was looking for vale down back to free up cash for gawn and grundy (good captain options each week but do wonder abt them maintaining averages)


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.
