Rich v Cotchin

Written by Motts on 4:30 pm, March 22 2011

Rich went with pick 7 in 2008 (behind Yarran), Cotchin with pick 2 in 2007 (behind Kreuzer). Cotch averaged in the 60’s his first 2 years before stepping up last year. Rich exploded onto the scene with an 85 average in 2009 before dropping slightly last year. Down in Melbourne we’re not hearing a lot about Rich but clearly he’s still pretty potent. Who do you like more?

In the last of my examples of teams I present to you a blended team. The key features are: you’ve got guns, mid-pricers who are considered bargains, DPP’s, and rookies that should get early games.

Harvey v Fyfe

Written by Motts on 7:34 am, March 22 2011

So your team’s all locked in and your happy with it, huh? Well allow me to shine the light on a couple of blokes you probably haven’t given a lot of thought to.

Both are F/M DPP’s and both had outstanding preseasons. In fact, I’ve broken with convention this morning to show in brackets after their names (their price, their 2011 preseason average).

The Dream Team

Written by Big Sexy on 1:55 pm, March 21 2011

It occurred to me during discussion in a post a couple of weeks back that everyone should go into SC with a goal… an end-game. Where do you want to be, and who do you want in your team come finals? There is a good chance if you have a clear understanding of where you want to go, it will assist defining what you start with. So here are my two Dream Teams following the two main defining theory’s kicking around:

Theory 1: I don’t care if I have players that have a bye during finals (but will limit).
