Who’s Your Captain? – Round 1, 2020

Published by Damo on

Gonna be honest, I didn’t think I’d have to write this article.

So I haven’t done any graphs as you’ll see from next week onwards. I’ve included PPM because in shorter games that has the potential to rise and be just as important to consider.

Last 3 at MCG: 108, 132, 138

Nice work Damo. A good reminder of how much lunacy has taken hold of my side. I may have to crowbar big max back in tomorrow… Ughhhh.

JohnDJ59 · 19/03/2020 at 00:48

I'm going Cripps into Grundy at the moment, or I might just put the VC on Grundy and see what happens.

    Russty_ · 19/03/2020 at 02:03

    Cripps and Grundy here too John..kinda boring but don't need any funky results in the first round.

Russty_ · 19/03/2020 at 02:04

Hey Neil NDD, can you change the AFL Fantasy League A-Graders to start in round 1 mate ? No point in it being round 2 now.

    Russty_ · 19/03/2020 at 13:51

    I just looked Neil, it looks like it hasn't changed…still starting round 2 ?

LHMORWOOD · 19/03/2020 at 08:05

Lloyd and Bont + 15k in the bank
Houston and Macrae + 80k in the bank

Which is the better option community??

    COREYSC · 19/03/2020 at 08:45

    Lloyd and Bont

    Mighty Chungus · 19/03/2020 at 11:23

    Houston and Bont??

Therealsharkmove · 19/03/2020 at 08:13

Don't wanna sound like the devil's avacado but to everyone who's taking Naismith what sort of average are you hoping/expecting?
Cos if it's 80-85 don't you reckon there is players that price that can do that in less important positions?

Steeeve · 19/03/2020 at 08:43

Steven out has me bringing in MacPherson. You reckon he's the real deal? Greenwood a safer bet but MacPherson more likely to push a 100 average in my view. That is if he's not a trap!

    Mighty Chungus · 19/03/2020 at 09:05

    For some reason unbeknownst to me, Mr Darcy has slowly crept out of my side. I dare say he may have been wearing sneakers… For sneaking.
    If U have a swing option Viney has similar AVG in Marsh for cheaper cheapness. I think I prefer gresh over d-mac. Greenwood… meh. Sorry mr. steeeve, I fear I may have merely further confounded.your situation…

      Steeeve · 19/03/2020 at 11:31

      Yeah he has trap written all over him but at least he hasn't already let me down over and over like petracca

    Stirlsy · 19/03/2020 at 10:59

    How long is Steven out for does anyone know?

      Mighty Chungus · 19/03/2020 at 11:21

      starting rnd 2

        Steeeve · 19/03/2020 at 11:31

        Not a good sign if he's gonna be "managed" all year

          Stirlsy · 19/03/2020 at 11:49

          Yeah Steeeve, but with the trades at almost 2 a week you could make a quick 150k off him in 4 to 5 rounds maybe if he plays in guts like there saying he will.
          I don't think his out of the picture yet.

Feds · 19/03/2020 at 11:06

Just looking at nic nat, seems like he has hasn't played Melbourne for years. Therefore gawns high numbers against West Coast may be over stated. I'd be careful putting the captain on gawn first round.

The Ranger · 19/03/2020 at 11:51

Strange times call for strange Supercoach teams…

Houston, Crisp, Doc, Roberton, Noble, BZerk – Watson, Williams
Macrae, Neale, TMitch, Bont, Dusty, Rowell, Green, Pickett – Robertson, Rivers, Mahoney
Grundy, English – Cameron
Gresham, MacPherson, Petracca, Brayshaw, Smith, Brander – Budarick, King

    Russty_ · 19/03/2020 at 13:52

    Yeah extraordinary times Ranger…as good a team as any out there mate..anything goes this year

      The Ranger · 19/03/2020 at 14:29

      I'm thinking that we might not even get 17 rounds in mate so I want to get to full midpricer as soon as possible and then try and stepping stone my way up from there!
      Sorry to anyone who's League I'm in…this may backfire spectacularly.

        Russty_ · 19/03/2020 at 15:51

        Worth a shot mate, with the trading being more like AFL Fantasy this year…it's more about points than money, just gotta keep jumping on and off guys who are in and out of form until hopefully ending up with a good side.

Dan · 19/03/2020 at 16:32

Lloyd and cogs or laird and Mitchell ?

    redherringfc · 20/03/2020 at 21:11

    I think lloyd has it over laird and cogs will increase in value, where I’m thinking Mitchell may drop in value over the opening rounds.

hedski · 19/03/2020 at 19:00

Doing a quick shuffle to fit in the rookies that are playing I've somehow ended up with Brett Bewley at F4!!?????
How the hell did that happen?
If you had to pick one of Long, Bewley or Shultz who would you take?
Not sure I'm keen on any of them…..probably better than King though.
Good to see Cavarra get a gig a year too late.

    The Ranger · 19/03/2020 at 19:17

    Long for mine Hedski.

      hedski · 19/03/2020 at 19:27

      Probably my pick too Ranger.
      Thinking Dusty vc tonight, could go large.

        The Ranger · 19/03/2020 at 19:31

        Yep, got the vc on him myself mate.

          hedski · 19/03/2020 at 19:35

          I'm a little bit short on cash to get Long back in after the rookie shuffle, might have to drop Neale to a Fyfe/Jelly/Bont if I end up wanting him (don't want Bewley I know that)

            The Ranger · 19/03/2020 at 19:46

            I bought Bont in recently. Looked bloody good in the Marsh and CD love him.

              hedski · 19/03/2020 at 20:25

              Is Dusty playing?

Jamie Pearce · 20/03/2020 at 06:07

Afl Fantasy League V2WZC9J6

BJSO · 21/03/2020 at 00:21

Soooo fellas, lock in grundys 179?

    Russty_ · 21/03/2020 at 12:01


MADMAX · 21/03/2020 at 19:04

McAsey looking like my best pick so far…
