Last Minute Decisions

Written by MJ on April 3 2015

It’s the last full day before we finally get into the swing of things. Whilst there is no footy on this afternoon, it gives us a whole day off to really finalise our lineups with only the Carlton & Richmond boys locked out.

Got Kamdyn McIntosh stuck as EMG and considering starting a non-playing rookie to loophole his 120 onto the field? Trying to flip the coin between two premiums? Pulling hairs out having to re-arrange your rookies after a plethora of favoured options didn’t get named?

What’s got you in a pickle this Good Friday?

  3. Four forward rookie spots. Redpath, Lamb, Saad, Hogan. I like them all, but still I wonder if I could do better. All should be starting. Only $2,800 left. I have Clark of course.

    That’s F5-8.

  4. Trade out Oxley or Brown for Hamling to get Mcintosh’s 120.
    Worried about Jed Andersons and CEY’s JS being named as emergencies.

  8. Already have Salem & Clark on the field. The question is, who’s the next best two rookie forwards to put on my bench?

  9. Is Gibson going to be free across the backline now that Frawley is at Hawthorn or is Hibberd a safer option with his generally steady 85-95 scores?

  10. Any love for Tom McDonald or Rohan Bewick as D4/D5? McDonald averaged a ton in the preseason and Bewick moves up to a wing as DPP.

  13. So, I have the 120 from K M on the bench, and I saw an idea on another forum that’s given me pause.

    What pairing should I start out with?

    Hibberd and Birchall

    or

    Shaw and Hurn

  14. When do Hawthorn and Geelong name their teams? Waiting on Jed Anderson. Is Darcy Lang of Geelong a decent option if he is named and Anderson isn’t? I can’t afford Cockatoo at present.

  15. Feeling my Eagles bias send me towards starting Kennedy or Wellingham as a stepping stone to a premium, given the eagles early draw.

    anyone else tempted by those two?

    JOSH CADDY – 14 Games, AVG 77 – 414K
    JARAD POLEC – 21 Games, AVG 81- 438K
    JAMES AISH – 21 Games, AVG 71 – 383K

  17. And another last minute conundrum.

    1. Heath Shaw and Ahmed Saad
    OR
    2. Bennell and Nathan Brown.

    1. would leave goodes at D5 with McIntosh/Saad/Oxley rotating at D6. It would however leave one of Lamb/Hogan/Saad at F6, with Clark and Salem at F4 and F5.

    2. Would leave 2 onfield rookies down back (goodes at D4) but allow Salem and Clark to sit at D5 and D6.

    Would be a great one for T/U , T/D .

  18. Last minute considerations:

    Lumumba out
    Ibbo in
    Use the extra cash to upgrade swan to bartel

    Thoughts? I already have gray and dusty (curse him!) up forward with swan at the moment

    A Lumumba (didnt want him but who else is there at his price or less?)Mumford

    B J Kelly Sandilands
    or
    C Nic Nat Fyfe (Even though this isnt great with so many rd 12 premium mids out)

    Team (100k in the bank)

    D H Shaw Kelly Gibson Newness Goodes McIntosh Oxley Saad
    M Ablett Pendles Sloane Lewis A Swallow Cripps Ellis-Yohmen, Anderson Vandenburg Miller Heeney
    R Goldy Nic Nat Reed
    F Swan D Martin Goddard Clark Salem Hogan Lamb Lonie

    Any help greatly appreciated

  20. Swallow could be a decent option for M8/9 all year, not a bad choice. Don’t think he’s top 10 but a 105-110 avg is still decent if things go his way. If you’re keen on Kelly then I’d hold him for the year. Same goes for NicNat. My team has a similar set-up but I went with a few more expensive rookies and no Ablett. Just going with my instinct. Small chance of starting well, big chance of shooting myself in the foot 😉

  21. Here are some last minute considerations:

    M4/5 Dangerfield or Selwood but thinking about keeping some cash to upgrade others. I’ve got Fyfe,Pendles, Beams, Parker.

    D2- Hibberd or Gibson, I’ve got Smith at D1 and need to choose between these two.

    M7- Do I start J.Anderson or put Heeney in or do kick out Anderson for someone else.

    Please help me and put your comments down below

  22. Option 1: Buddy Leuy and Selwood

    Option 2 Swan Nic Nat and Parker

    Option 3 Swan Nic Nat and Lewis

    If you have any other ideas for players around the same price I would love to hear them as well

  23. who to play on ground?
    pick 1 from these 4 – miller, heeney, vandenberg or CEY…
    leaning toward miller or heeney as they are both named on ground today, although i reckon CEY will score highest if not the sub.

  24. Anyone have thoughts about Jed Anderson vs Vanderburg?

    I sort of want to improve on Hogan but I am not really seeing anyone I want more. Even with a lot in the bank. Maybe Tim Membrey?

    Thanks to all for sharing!

  26. I am still in two minds about this, PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    M4/5 Dangerfield or Selwood but thinking about keeping some cash to upgrade others. I’ve got Fyfe,Pendles, Beams, Parker. Two other considerations would be Lewis or Griifen just for the money. Also is 40k enough to leave in the bank cause if I were to swap Dangerfield for Selwood that’s how much I would have left over?
