      1. I’d be waiting for Dear to get a call up – use him for dpp donut and allow Sicily swing rather than Ahern in your circumstance.

    Sicily is in my forward line because there is hardly any forward rookie who will play
    Cam Rayner will probably not stay there but we’ll see

    Thanks

    1. Don’t mind the look of it at all. Would prefer Sicily down back but like you said, FWD rookies running thin. Petracca is the big one if he comes good……..

      1. Can easily look at moving Sicily back when you cash in Naughton/Doedee etc.

        By then you should be able to buy a premo forward.

    2. Very nice.

      Only issue is I feel you are one too many rookies onfield in fwds.

      But hopefully the Fogarty swing will protect you (Iโ€™m doing the same).

      Good luck!

    1. No risk, no fun…….looks a little too risky for mine………too many IFs & BUTs about Hanley, Sicily, Armitage, NicNat AND Curnow. If it pays off, you’d be an absolute genius ๐Ÿ˜‰

    2. I like your team. Has depth on every line.
      Only change I would consider is down grading Armitage to LDU/Dow etc and upgrading Coniglio to a definite keeper but you’ve gone with your gut feel so why not stick to it.

  10. Where do i invest $200,000 of my remaining $300,000?
    Money exists as i dropped Armitage for a rookie.
    Note: Rookie is $124k or less

    Yeo, Laird, Savage, Shaw, Rookie, Rookie (Rookie, Rookie)

    Danger, Titch, Zorko, Fyf, Cripps, A Brayshaw, Rookie, Rookie (3 x rookie)

    Kreuzer, Gawn (Cameron)

    Heeney, McLean, Sicily, Rookie, Rookie, Rookie, (2x Rookie)

    (tossing up between Mclean and Billings, would still be happy to use $200k elsewhere if i end up with billings).

    1. Add a higher priced rookie or two. It will improve job security, scores etc.
      (eg. Coffield in DEF – $160k)

    Wasn’t going to play supercoach this year, but caught the bug at the last minute. I’ve selected very conservative teams in recent years, so this year I’m going to take a punt. If it doesn’t work out, I’m not that invested anyway ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Edit: 246k remaining.

      1. G’day Chillo,

        Jeremy Cameron in the F2.

        Historically I have avoided power forwards like the plague but this year is different. J Cameron’s scores will fluctuate but a big week is huge and a bad week is comparable to likes of Billings. His ability (injuries) to play every week is the risk.

        Cheers

      1. Christensen down to someone like a garlett or maybe move Higgins to forward and get banfield in mid?
        Essentially Christensen down to banfield.
        That would give me 150K. I have about 100K in the bank atm still won’t quite give me enough for danger.

        I also feel I can get danger at a discounted price in a few weeks as well . He is quite highly priced

        0

        1
      2. Rather ditch Christensen, Sicily Fwd, ditch Melb Brayshaw altogether.

        Marchbank into defence, Dow into mids.

        1. Thanks mate. Had a tinker and got rid of Christensen and Higgins for Dow and banfield after shuffling Sicily and brayshaw around.. at this point in time I an keeping brayshaw. I’m a big fan

  16. Shaking things up a little again. Got a few different structures worked out now, pending rookie availability. Thoughts on this:

    DEF: Hurley, Laird, Hibberd, Coffield, Doedee, Finlayson (Murray, Mirra)
    MID: Danger, Titch, Kelly, Fyfe, Cripps, Brayshaw, Dow, Brodie (Banfield, Kelly, Holman)
    RUC: Goldy, Gawn (Cameron)
    FWD: Billings, Wallis, Caddy, Sicily, Christensen, Fritsch (Garlett, Ryan)

    $22k in the bank.

    Minimal risk, but a bit of faith in some young blokes up forward.

    4

    2
      1. He’s the likely beneficiary of the remaining $22k – just not sure which other rookie will get selected as yet.

        1

        1
      1. Certainly possible – but they pose no greater risk than the alternatives (Smith, Curnow, Petracca etc.).

        Wallis averaged 98 back in 2015, and up until his broken leg in 2016 he was averaging a smidge under 90. First game back from injury last year he belted out 132, and went on to average 87 over the remaining 12 games. With a preseason behind him I’d expect him to push up over 90.

        Caddy averaged 93.7 and 89.8 in 2015/16 respectively. Dropped off a little in his first year at Richmond, but I believe he’ll step up again this year and play a more prominent role in the middle. He’s the one I’m least confident on, of the 4 you’ve highlighted.

        Sky is the limit with Sicily. Seems to be finding a clear role down back at Hawthorn, and barring any big brain-fades I think he’ll go 90-95 this year. DPP means if he goes sub-90, he can still finish the year as D6 or F6, or potentially take a bench spot to cover both lines. I like that sort of flexibility.

        Christensen is what he is. $267k for a bloke who should play most of the year and could average anywhere from 65-90. If there was a better rookie available I’d take them, but there’s not.

        Caddy for one of Smith/Petracca/Curnow is certainly a consideration, but that’s still injury-prone/unproven/unproven, so what do you do?

        8

        2
        1. I agree with you on Christensen and Sicily (although “barring any big brain-fades” was wryly funny).

          I haven’t checked, but I don’t remember sighting Wallis this pre-season. Is he playing?

      1. Brayshaw has scored well last night (I know…only 1 game) and was busy when he got back late end of season.

        At Brayshaws price yeah probably take out Witherden as thinks heโ€™s got more upside.

      1. Cheers mate. I want Cameron and I’m 3k short and I’m still trying to figure out a way around that. If Jarrod Garlett isn’t playing round 1 I might be forced to get rid of Hibberd for a rookie and turn Garlett into Billings and that would free up some extra cash for Cameron. The problem with that is it would depend on me having 3 on field defensive rookies and I’m not sure how good their job security will be (or if there would actually be that many).

    1. Very deep forward line. I like that. But I think you have a weak midfield. I would thin out the forward line and add another decent player to the midfield as that’s where most of your points will come from. That’s my opinion.

  24. Please rate my team. Still not set on rookies obviously. Also not 100% sure about my forwards and backs.

    Let me know what you think.

    Rucks
    Martin, Simpson, english

    Forwards
    Buddy, Gray, caddy, Stephenson, fritsch, garlett, ahern, Ryan.

    Any thoughts would be great.

    Have 247k in the bank to upgrade if needed or happy to sit on it to upgrade through the year.

    I am aware Gary is out in round 1 but it’s only one round and happy to risk it.

    1

    3
    1. Keep in mind Gray also has the round 10 bye, so starting with him means you’ll be without him twice. He would have to post some big scores in those first 8 games for it to be worthwhile. I love Robbie, but I’m not sure he’ll make a blistering start.

      A more logical approach is watch his form in the first 9 weeks and target him as a first upgrade.

      O’Shea doesn’t appear likely to play as well as Ahern. Consider Keefe, Rioli, and Ryan as others options.

      For Lyons to be worthwhile at 500k he needs to be a keeper and I’m not sure he will score enough. Could easily use that extra cash to upgrade him to a Zerret/Kelly/Oliver type. Alternatively you could look at Parker for a value option.

      Dawson Simpson i don’t think will play more than as many games are necessary to cover lobb and i don’t think he’ll score that well (sorry cousin if you’re reading). I’m not keen on any of the value rucks, so you might consider an upgrade to any in the 500k range.

      Hope this helps.

    Did a little tweak after tonight’s result in the JLT

    DEF – M. Hibberd, K. Simpson, H. Shaw, N. Coffield, T. Doedee, J. Finlayson (S. Murray, L. Murphy)
    MID – D. Martin, T. Mitchell, J. Kelly, N. Fyfe, P. Cripps, J. Redden, R. Fox, A. Brayshaw (T. Kelly, D. Barry, N. Holman)
    RUC – M. Kruezer, M. Gawn (D. Cameron)
    FWD – I. Heeney, M. Walters, D. Smith, A. Christensen, B. Fritsch, L. Ryan (P. Ahern, J. Garlett)

    $128.2K remaning

    With scores of 92 and 76, I think Robbie Fox could be a decent steal. So he’s in for now.
    My R1 will be either Kreuzer or Jacobs. I’ll have to see how they both do tomorrow.
    Also, if Redden happens to flop this weekend, Coniglio will be taking his place.

    Any constructive criticism is appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚

    (DEF) Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Sicily, Doedee, Murray (Finlayson, Mirra)
    (MID) Martin, Titch, Kelly, Fyfe, Crippa, Coniglio, Brayshaw, Dow (Kelly, Barry, Holman)

    (FWD) Heeney, Billings, Smith, Stephenson, Poholke, Keefe (Fritsch, Rioli)
    4K in the bank, advice on a couple of selections, Grundy or Jacobs, Heeney or Greene and would it be smarter to get Sicily into the forwardline?

    1. Hi Caleb
      Jacobs, based on Lone Ruck Theory
      Heeney, based on No D***heads Policy
      Sicily would be OK in the forwards if it means you can replace a fwd rookie with a def rookie

      0

      1
  38. Looks pretty good.
    Personally would trade lloyd and Sicily for a true premium and one of the slightly pricier Rookies in Naughton or Coffield.

    If you want to keep Sicily put him forward for Smith. Smith has a terrible injury history.

    This should also leave you a few more $ in the bank for the inevitable rookie shuffle R1.

    Jacobs or Martin over Grundy for sure. looks like big Cox is going to play a fair bit this season. not good news for Grundy owners.

    Midfield too stacked???

    1. Hey Chompy – nothing wrong with a stacked midfield if you want a fast start. Bit too risky to be going with Stringer and NicNat though – downgrade Stringer and use the cash to get a safer ruck choice.
      Normally I’d say that four def rookies on the field is too many, but this year it’s a very valid strategy. Good job.

    1. Get rid of Stringer mate, not worth the stress.
      There’s a few question marks over your rookies, but I’m sure you’ll sort that out. A few PODs in your midfield is good.

      1

      1
  42. Thinking of a 444 strategy.
    Four guns in Def – Mid – Fwd
    That includes Danger Martin Fyfe in mids (of course) & some underpriced guns as well.
    Iโ€™ve been struggling trying to have a total gun midfield & having to comprise in defence & forward with players Iโ€™m not overly confident with. I think itโ€™s important this year to be strong in defence & forwards. Thoughts?

    1

    1
    1. First figure out what rookies you want, and then fill in guns in the spaces left, whatever lines those spaces are in

      3

      1
    1. End of round 1.
      But once a team has started playing (tigers v blues), you canโ€™t access those players. Chose wisely.

  45. Im at the point where I have a few PODs and want to keep a couple of risky/different pics but right now have a bit too much. Would love advice on which to cut.

    Def: Hurley, Laird, Witherden, Coffield, O’shea, Murray (Doedee, Cumming)

    I would love if there were decent forward rookies so I could take out one of sicily and christensen and move the money to turn one of my risky picks elsewhere into a lock.

    1. PODs who are not R14 byes are better than PODs who are R14 byes.

      Also, pick the best players, don’t worry about taking PODs as a goal. It is hard enough to pick good players without trying to take players other people are not. Low ownership players are not being selected for reasons.

    1. If you start without danger, you buy him as a fallen premium when Coniglio has gone up, or Petracca or Heeney fail to make the step via dpp.

      2

      1
  49. If Danger is out round 1 and you’re going for rank do you start with him on your bench or do you not start him and make him your very first upgrade? Atm he’s in my team but I could go Danger to Coniglio and Garlett/Ryan to Petracca leaving me with an on field Premo-Midprice-Rookie structure of –

    DEF: 3-0-3
    MID: 4-1-3
    RUC: 1-1-0
    FWD: 2-4-0

    With 80k in the bank. Obviously Coniglio would be my pathway to Danger but if Cogs is going ham I’ll have to look at one of the forward midpricers and a rookie to get the job done. Anyway that’s all from me, please help!!!

    1

    1
    1. If Danger any sort of hammy, its 3-4 weeks, so he may not be playing till round 3. I reckon this means a slow start for him, and a much lower price when cows start to fatten.

  54. Savage could be a trap, we’ve seen it before. But if his mindset has changed since he got dropped before the byes and he plays like the talent we know he is, he’ll be possibly the only 100 point defender this year.

    Likewise the Tabener pick.

    Death or Glory all the way. Solid Team, very brave picks.

    You’re not just there to make up the numbers.

    1. I like this team HH.

      Very solid midfield with Parker at M6.I like the Buddy pick straight up,and S Martin in the ruck.

      Smith and Sicliy forward is Ballsy.

      I guess you can always throw Sicily back if he starts spudding it up.

      Not starting with Dusty could sting you. who knows?

      Best of luck in 2018.

      1. Thanks mate.

        Sicily will be a bit hit or miss but 91 average last season when he moved back.

    1. Roberton should score about the same as last year. I think they’ll free him up to be the mobile defender focusing on intercept marking when they can with Carlisle, Geary and Brown playing more lockdown. The loose man, previously Montagna, looks most likely to go to Savage. Brandon White is being groomed to take over the role but probably not for this year.

  60. Thoughts on this team.

    DEF: Laird, Hibbered, Sicily, Murray, Naughton, Doedee (Finlayson, Coffield)

    MID: Danger, Martin, Mitchell, J.Kelly, Fyfe, Brayshaw, Barry, T.Kelly (Banfield, LDU, Holman)

    Rucks: Ryder and Gawn ( Rookie)

    Forwards: Heeney, Billings, T.Mclean, D.Smith, Fogarty, Fritsch (Ryan, Giles-Langdon)

    Went abit stronger in the forward line due to lack of good rookie options. Better rookie options in defence and am going to take a punt on Sicily.

    1
  61. Whatdya think?

    Def: Hurley, Yeo, Weitering, Bonner… Coffield/Finlayson/Doedee/Murray

    Mid: Martin, Mitchell, Neale… O’Meara, Graham, Brayshaw (Fre), Davies-U… Barry/Banfield/Kelly/Holman

  62. Havenโ€™t asked for pre season help before, so feedback will be welcome. BTW, my team never had Danger, Iโ€™m calling that a stroke of genius :

    Left in bank $100k, feel like I should upgrade a forward somehow ?

    1. Pretty balanced side GregB.

      Having O”Meara ,Libba and Smith is a risky strategy .

      If they all stay fit your a genius. I would only gamble on one maybe two at most.

      Best of luck in 2018.

      1. Thanks FT. I know the Oโ€™Meara + Libba thing looks risky but my thinking is :
        Early rounds I should get some good points and maybe $100k growth as well.
        Hope that one of the 2 (with a small cash injection from my bank) will get me into a reduced price Danger.

    Ruck: S Martin, M Gawn (D Cameron)

    Fwd: J Billings, D Smith, J Sicily, A Christensen, D Fogarty, B Fritsch (L Keeffe, L Ryan)

    Gone with a packed mid this year, its where all the points are at and have faith all will be in the top 10. Rookies up back allow a 2-1-3 this year, lots of mooing to be done! Rucks set and forget and the forward line is the weakest link but I believe the likes of sicily off HBF can avg 95+ proved it in back half of last year, Christensen to his best and it’ll all pay off! If Danger misses more than round 1 he will be downgraded to Oliver or Crouch, while balancing the fwd line a bit more.

    All the best for 2018!!!

    1. I like many of you choices ๐Ÿ™‚

      I do question Christensen. Hasn’t looked his best, even when the side had more support brought in during JLT2. May want to check out a McCartin/Florent/Rayner type for the money…

      Good luck!

  65. Seen some of the footy… read a lot more and thought I’d post after seeing both JLT1/2. Here is my take until the teams are named in Round 1. Obviously, I really appreciate the time of other coaches reading and any feedback is great.

    D: Laird, Hibberd, McGrath, Coffield (M), Cole, Naughton (Doedee, Murray)

    M: Martin, JKelly, ZMerrett, Fyfe, Cripps, Brayshaw, TKelly, Holman (Finlayson (D), Banfield, Garlett (F))

    R: Gawn, Nankervis (Cameron)

    F: Heeney (M), Billings, McLean (M), DSmith, Petracca (M), Fritsch (Giles-Langdon, Ryan)

    $100.1k left in the kitty

    Strategy this year has been driven by the following factors:
    – Defensive Rooks = Good
    – Forward Rooks = Bad
    – Danger is lost for ???, so will wait for return and watch form
    – Byes (1/6/11/12)
    – Nankervis + Cameron = Paddy if needed after Round 10
    – Some flexibility with Rookie Bench Mids
    – Rookies are subject to change, both being in the team and location in squad (e.g. Coffield into the midfield over Holman, if I moved Finlayson to the backline, should both of them be named as starters)

    Good luck to all!
    Thanks.

    T.McLean, D.Smith, T.Bell, J.Stephenson, D.Fogarty, L.Keefe.
    (L.Ryan, B.Fritsch)

    $359.8K in the bank.

    Pretty happy with this team. Only thing im worried about is non of my mids can switch to forward/defence. Not sure if thats an issue. Iv gone without Danger at this stage, assuming his missing round 1.

    Appreciate any feedback.

  69. Good base team with a very decent structure.

    I would try and bring a premo into your forward line for more protection – heeney, billings etc.
    A mid priced in the mids for one of your rookies could prove very useful – jaegar, armitage, maybe Bradshaw, and even all the way to coniglio, etc.
    If needed downgrade Jeremy Howe to a mid priced for more money.

    Otherwise very solid team, interesting choice of nankervis, could prove a very handy P.O.D with a breakout year

    Reasonably pricey M7-M9 but I believe these rookies are the key to making big money. I also haven’t shied away from breakout candidates. So hit me with the feedback.

    1. Rookie SC

      Lycett wasted on ruck bench.

      Sinclair is injured. so move Lycett to R2 and put a rookie at R3

      Use the cash to upgrade your forward line .4 rookies on field is too many.

      Most experienced SC players are only running with 3 premo defenders this year. I would downgrade Hurley to say Naughton.

      This should free up some cash to turn A Hall into a true premo Mid.

      Like Dusty,J. Kelly ,M Crouch.

      Remember your Captain scores double points. Having a few uber premo options is always a good plan.

      Best of luck in 2018.

        1. Check out Hutta’s JLT Rookie review.

          Picking the best rookies with good job security is really the key to building a solid SC side.

          All the best.

  82. Feel like I’m getting close to something fairly concrete:

    DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Marchbank, Coffield, Naughton, Doedee (Murray, Finlayson)
    MID: Danger, Zorko, Crouch, Fyfe, Cripps, Coniglio, Brayshaw, Brodie (Banfield, Kelly, Holman)
    RUC: Goldy, Gawn (Olango)
    FWD: Buddy, Billings, Smith, Sicily, Keeffe, Fritsch (Garlett, Ryan)

    $33k in the bank

    That cash gives me a little breathing room on a rookie or two, otherwise my considerations are:

    Smith -> McLean
    Goldy -> Martin/Jacobs
    Marchbank -> Wilson
    Crouch -> Kelly

    Ruck: Gawn, jacobs (olango) for the loophole

  85. DEF: S Savage, J Sicily, M Williams, T Stewart, T Doedee, S Murray (A Naughton, J Finalyson)
    MID: P Dangerfield (C Oliver if not selected RD1), J Kelly, M Crouch, N Fyfe, P Cripps, T Liberatore, A Brayshaw (FRE), B Banfield (N Holman, T Kelly, D Barry)
    RUC: M Gawn, T Nankervis (T Olango)
    FWD: L Franklin, J Billings, K Lambert, M Cox, T Bell, L. Keeffe (B Fritsch, L Ryan)

    High risk strategy I know, but if it pays off, it should be looking fantastic through and after the byes for the long run home!!

    PS I have entered another team that is boringly safe with Laird, Hibberd, Heeney, Petracca etc., but this is the one that excites me.

    Would love to hear thoughts having done HOURS of analysis to get to this point.

        Just remember that 2nd team is your wives or your mums or your sons.

        Having more than 1 team in your name excludes you from any prizes. ๐Ÿ™‚

  86. Hi guys teams are all shaping up for the real stuff, any comments are appreciated

    Def: Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Sicily, Doedee, Murray (Finlayson, Murphy)

    Mids: Danger, Martin, Mitchell, Kelly, Fyfe, Coniglio, Brayshaw (fre0), Holman (Kelly, Barry, Banfield)

    Rucks: Gawn, Lycett (Olango)

    Fwds: Heeney, Billings, Smith, T Bell, Keefe, Fritsch (Miers, Ryan)

    Obviously aware of the Danger of Dangers injury so have also decided that if hes no good Danger would become Zerrett and Coniglio into Cripps and T Bell into Taberner like the look of him so far. Also thinking of Cox over Lycett.

    Please comment your thoughts, appreciate straight feedback as harsh as it is.
