Rate My Team VII

Written by MJ on March 20 2015

There’s only 13 days to go until Round 1. It’s time to really get the team in tip top shape because those two weeks are going to pass by quicker than you can say “Gary Ablett will play Round 1”.

How is it looking? Starting to panic? Or feeling quietly confident in your squad?

  1. Backs:Gibson; Enright; Newnes; Lumumba; Langdon; Edwards; Goddard; Saad.
    Mids: Pendles; Selwood; Beams; Danger; Griffin; Newton; Heeney; Boekhorst; Vandenberg; Ellis- Yohmen; Steele.
    Rucks: Goldy; Nic Nat; Read
    Fwds: Bartel; Martin; Swan; Salem; Clark; Hogan; Krakouer; Lamber.

    Have 148k left to move things around with final rookie selections. Taking a big punt first time ever not starting with G Ablett!!


  2. DEF: Simpson, Smith, Shaw, Gibson, Newnes, Brown (Goddard, Saad)
    MID: JPK, Sidebottom, Dangermouse, Griffin, Newton, Cripps, Anderson, Heeny, (Boekhorst, Ellis-Yolmen, Miller)
    RUC: Maric, Nicnat or Minson (Read)
    FWD: Bartel, Goddard, Martin, Swan, Clark, Hogan (Lambert, Karnezis)

    As you can see i went with the not as strong midfield combination, you might think of why oh why, BUT between JPK, sidebottom, dangerfield and griffin i think they can handle the captaincy role well until i trade Gaz back in (im assuming he is not going to play round one and if so then the lineup would be a little different)

    Overall i have 7 rookies on the playing field with the rest being premiums bar newnes and maybe swan. This is a classsic guns and rookies team which i think will do well, i believe that rookies will be key this year as i dont think there will be as many as last year.

    This is why i have paid for the top dollar rookies such as cripps, newton and Anderson as i think they will all have a big impact (i just hope Anderson will get a good run rather then the vest each week)

    In the rucks i could go minson or nic nat, they both have there upsides and downsides as nic nat is injury prone and can sometimes just fade away from the game, with minson he just gives away so many free kicks and i think that hurts his score a lot. I am swaying to nic nat as i think he could have a bit year (just a gut feeling)

    As you can see in the defence i only have 1 rookie playing on the field, this makes up for my lack of premium midfielders, im not sure how this will go but i think it could be a very safe option with the rookie defenders being next to none i just dont see many popping up this year (not in the nab cup anyway)

    Overall give us your thoughts i will enjoy all the banter!

    Thanks, Winni!

  6. Nathan’s Gunz V8

    Like my Team but don’t really like 3 Fwd rookies on field and 2 downback, any ideas? Heap of cash banked

    Simpson, Shaw, Hibberd, Newnes, Hambling, Goddard ( Edwards, Saad)

    Gaz, Pendles, Selwood, JPK, Griffen, Newton, Anderson, Heeney ( Boekhorst Vandenberg, Freeman)

    Goldy, Nic Nat (Read)

    Goddard, Martin, Swan, Clark, Hogan, Lambert (Lamb, Loine)

    $170k Banked


  7. twitch great side laverde to krackour maybe n brown t hunt in backs 4 a rookie atleast brown plays dont know about dick lol


  8. 3 forward rookies on field is probably going to be pretty standard this year. I’d use the 170K to upgrade one of your defensive rookies and/or downgrade Newton/Anderson to free up some cash.

    Oops, that was for Natteo. Posted in the wrong spot.


  9. Think I’m happy?!?!
    Def: B.Smith, H.Shaw , J.Newnes, K.Kolodjashnij, B.Smedts, H.Goddard (Z.Jones, A.Saad)
    Mid: S.Pendlebury, N.Fyfe, D.Beams, A.Swallow, N.van Berlo, B.Newton, I.Heeney, B.Boekhorst(N.Cockatoo, A.Vandenberg, J.Steele)
    Ruc: S.Jacobs, S.Martin (T.Nankervis)
    Fwd: R.Gray, J.Bartel, D.Martin, D.Swan, M.Clarke, J.Hogan (T.Lamb, K.Lambert)


  10. Def: Smith, Shaw, Newnes, Langdon, Pearce, Goddard, Oxley, Saad.
    Mid: Ablett, Pendles, Fyfe, Bennell, Crouch, Rich, Newton, Heeney, Ellis Yollman, Steele, Lambert.
    Ruck: Nik Nat, Luey, Cox
    Fwd: Gray, Martin, Swan, Bellchambers, Salem, Clark, Hogan, Krakouer.

    Bit more work needed. Thinking of downgrading Bennell to a mid pricer or even another rookie which will allow me to strengthen the rucks and defenders. Thoughts?


  11. Backline: N. Malceski, L.Hodge, J. Newnes, M. Scharenburg, D. McKenzie, A. Saad (H. Goddard, C. Hanley)

    Mids: G. Ablett, N.Fyfe, D. Beams, J. Selwood, J. Ziebell, J. Crisp, P. Cripps, B. Boekhurst (C. Ellis-Yoelman, N. Freeman, T. Miller)

    Rucks: T. Goldstein, P. Ryder (T. Read)

    Forwards: R. Gray, D. Martin, D. Swan, C. Salem, M. Clark, K. Lambert (P. Karnezis, J. Laverde)

    Let me know what you think.

    Currently have Bartel, Belchambers and Jed anderson rotating through the team at different points. Not sure about belchambers but like having the ability to swap him and ryder. Anderson sub vest?

    Also unsure what to do with Ziebell and Crisp atm, think they both have the chance to have break out season, but might be risky with both. Could upgrade one to a premium and get another rookie for the other.



  12. B: Shaw, Gibson, Newnes, Harry O, T Hunt, Goddard (Maynard, Saad)

    M: GAJ, Fyfe, Ward, Lewis, Cripps, Anderson, Heeny, Bokehourst (Ellis-Yolmen, Steele, Krakour)

    R: Jacobs, Nic Nat

    F: Gray, Bartel, Dusty, Swan, Clark, Karnezis (Lonie, Lambert)

    97k left


  13. Got major trade fatigue, so this is it (pending rookies being selected for rd 1):

    Gibson, Newnes, Johnson, Lumumba, Jaksch, Hamling (Goddard, Saad)

    Pendlebury, Sloane, Kennedy, Priddis, Cripps, Anderson, Vandenberg, Ellis-Yolmen (Freeman, Steele, Krakouer)

    Goldstein, Naitanui (Read)

    Bartel, Franklin, DMartin, Swan, Lycett, Clark (Hogan, Lambert)

    31K left over. I know I’ve overloaded the fwd line, but I’m comfortable that. Most of the viable rookies are mids anyway. Backline is a problem but I don’t think I’m alone there. Of course, I reserve the right to completely rejig the team if GAJ passes muster next week.

    RUC: Goldy, Nic Nat (Read)
    FWD: Goddard, Martin, Swan, Clark, Hogan, Salem (Lambert, Lamb)

    Any feedback would be appreciated.
    Rookies can change pending Nab cup.

    Little heavy in the back due to bugger all rookies. Prefer set and forgot there.

    If Abletts is out Rd 1, Selwood in, money left in bank until Ablett returns.


  16. Defenders:
    Gibbo, Kelly , Newnes, Yarran, Vlaustin, N.Brown
    (maynard, Saad)

    Fyfe, Selwood, Beams, Ward, Rich, Van Berlo, Cripps, N.Freeman
    (Yolmen, Steele, Kraka)

    Nic Nat, Smith

    Gray, Martin, Dahlhaus, Swan, Karnezis, M Clark
    (C.Daniel, Lambert)


  17. Should Gibson be in my team? Not sure, can someone convince me?
    Thumbs up= lock him in
    Thumbs down = probs nah


  18. Def: B.Smith, J.Newnes, H.Lumumba, J.Geary, C.Pearce, S.Edwards, H.Goddard, A.Saad

    Mid: G.Ablett, S.Pendlebury, D.Beams, JP. Kennedy, J.Steven, B.Newton, J.Anderson, I.Heeney, B.Boekhorst, A.Vandenberg, N.Freeman

    Ruck: Goldstein, Nic Nat, Read

    Fwd: J.Bartel, D.Martin, D.Swan, M.Bontempelli, M.Clark, J.Hogan, C.Daniel, K.Lambert

    $64,000 in the bank.

    A word on my team:

    Def:I am not sure if i should upgrade Geary or downgrade him because even though he has played nicely in the NAB Challenge it wasn’t against hard teams and don’t know how he will perform. I am thinking of puttting Pearce or maybe Jaksch both have played well in the Nab challenge but don’t know if they can cope good teams. Lastly the rookies, i just don’t know if Edwards and H.Goddard are going to play and not get the vest.

    Mid: I am unsure about Gaz he is a God but he hasn’t played in the preseason and don’t know if he can get enough points for his high price. Can people write below about if i have picked the write mid rookies cause they have consistently been changing.

    Ruck: I am liking the two ruck men in Goldstein and Nic Nat because i think both can rack up some big scores.

    Fwd: I am worried with Bontempelli and don’t know if i should upgrade or downgrade i think he will get more time in the mid but unsure if he can rack up 90-100 points. I would like to upgrade one of my rooks to Salem but don’t know which one.

    Please put down your thoughts on my team.


  19. Backs: B.Smith, J.Gibson, K.Kelly, S.Hurn, J.Newnes, N.Brown (H.Goddard, A.Saad)
    Mid: S.Pedlebury, N.Fyfe, L.Parker, D.Heppell, B.Newton, P.Cripps, J.Anderson, C.Ellis-Yoleman (I.Henney, B.Boekhorst, K.Lambert)
    Ruck: T.Goldstein, W.Minson (Cox)
    Fowards: J.Bartel, D.Martin, D.Swan, S.Lycett, M.Clark, J.Hogan (J.Leonie, C.Daniel)

    Rookies subject to change
    Lycett as cover for the ruck
    Weak midfield but need to allow space for the most valuable rookies. Hoping that D1-D5 will stay solid for most of the year along with F1-F5 and both rucks, then throw all gained rookie money into the mids.


  20. Newest mashup.


    Def: Newnes, Lumumba, Missy, Geary, Jaksch, Saad (Mackenzie, Maynard)

    Mids: Gaz, Pendles, Beams, Gray, Parker, Neale, Newton, Cripps (Ellis-Yolmen, Miller, Lambert)

    Rucks: Sauce, Zmith, Cox

    Fwd: Dusty, Zorko, Swan, Salem, Clark, Hogan (Krak, Lonie)

    $0 left. Not 100% happy on budget rookies (had to lose Freeman to get Cripps) so may downgrade gray or missy.

    Not sure on gray or ablett’s preseason….


  21. Opinions welcome.

    B: B.Smith, Shaw, Hurn, Newnes, Brown, Goddard, Saad, Edwards
    M: Gaz, Pendles, Priddis, Gray, Griffin, VanBerlo, Newton, Heeney, Freeman, Vandenberg, N.Krak.
    R: Maric, NicNat, Read

    Ablett, Pendlebury, Fyfe, Ward, Heppell, Van Berlo, Anderson, Heeney
    (Vandenburg, Yolmen, Krakouer)

    Goldstein, Bellchambers

    Gray, Martin, Zorko, Swan, Clark, Lonie
    (Daniel, Lambert)


  23. IF, and it’s a BIG if, I can bring myself to hit “save my team” and get rid of gaz, my team will look something like this:

    Backs- Gibbo, Johnson, newnes, lumumba, Higgins, KK (saad, n brown)

    Mids- pendles, selwood, JPK, priddis, steven, Newton, Cripps, Ellis-Y, (Steele, lambert, vamdenberg)

    Rucks- maric, belchambers

    Forward- Gray, Martin, swan, Lennon, Clarke, lonie (Goddard, krak)

    Goddard and Higgins can swap back and forward depending on what rookies play

    Thoughts? Keep gaz? Trade gaz? (Can’t believe I’m even considering it!)

  29. Here’s my current team, getting pretty set on it, still have enough cash to change rookies/rucks come R1 or save to bring in Gaz. Oh and Harbour Heros im hearing that Nic Nats ready to go, rumours of hamstring injures were false, Eagles just keeping him in cotton wool, with a soft draw, lock him in!

    Rookies are subject to Rnd 1 selections.
    R2,D3 are still up for grabs…50k in da bank!
    Ablett upgrade set for bye round.


  31. Trying to generate some cash for D5 got 3 combos I could do
    Option 1
    Mummy to nicnat = +$125,400
    And just move some rookies to make
    Option 2
    Gray to Deledio or anyone under that price = $43,300+
    Cripps to rookie under $129,200 = +82,200
    Option 3
    Neale to rich = $120,600
    And hogan to a cheaper rookie


  32. DEF: Shaw, Gibson, Hibberd, Lumumba, Vlastuin, Edwardes (Goddard, Maynard)

    MID: Pendles, Beams, L. Parker, Wines, A. Swallow, Anderson, Heeney, Boekhorst (Ellis-Yolmen, Freeman, Saad)

    RUCK: Mummy, Goldy (R. O’Brien)

    FWD: Gray, Martin, Swan, M. Clark, Hogan, Daniel (Lamb, Lambert)

    $171K in warchest.

    No entirely sold on spending so much in the ruck – reckon all top-priced rucks are going to go down pretty quickly – and feel like maybe the mids could do with another heavy-hitter.

    Thoughts are appreciated.


  33. Version 1567!

    Backs- Gibbo, newnes, lumumba, Higgins, KK, t hunt (saad, Oxley)

    Mids- gaz, pendles, selwood, priddis, Steven, Newton, v’berg, Ellis-Y (lambert, Steele, Anderson)

    Rucks- maric, nick nat (cox)

    Forwards- Gray, Martin, swan, Salem, Clarke, krak (Goddard, lonie)

    Goddard and Higgins to swap where required to strengthen either defence or forwards.

    Seriously considering going without gaz- and thinking picking up JPK and upgrading nick nat to mummy. Gives me a solid ruck combo of mummy and maric

    Thoughts guys? Cheers

  39. This debate comes up every year.. To gaj or not to gaj. Particular debate this year with round 1 to consider. Every year all those without Ablett end up seeing the error of their ways and break their backs to get him in asap.
    If you choose to let him slide to begin with, remember that the first few trade weeks really need to be focused on rookie fixes before price rises. So if you leave him out round 1, you really need to stand by that decision for at least 4-5 weeks IMO. Just sayin, think ahead!

  43. As a big Pies fan I’m still unsure whether i want to put Swannie in my forward line… After watching him in action this weekend, I’m a bit concerned, though will be kicking myself if i take him out and he performs well????

    So do i keep Swannie in and hope for the best, or was thinking maybe putting Roughie in instead, thoughts?

    Ok if Ablett does play round one, im guessing his not goin to smash it just yet, so im hoping to save there and not looking like a Dickhead. if!!!! and when his price does drop either way i shall be getting rid of Rich for gazza.

    For some reason I brought in Higgins today and got rid of Rance, hoping he should score better but a better return for the money.

    Im unsure about Swan. i keep takin him out and bringin him back in..

    God come on round one!!! lol

  48. Ok Lads (and the occasional lady),

    Can’t wait for the season to start. Taking a very different approach here with some unconventional picks but with plenty of value out there and some serious doubts (and lack of definitive news) over the fitness of some key players I’ve taken the following approach….





    I have $27K left. I know my ruck department is quite soft but want to see the new ruck scoring pan out before committing on the combination. Also know defence needs work and there’s plenty of risk but also value and potential for some keepers (maybe 2 max outside of Newnes) but as is well documented lack of rookie options makes it challenging. 90 is the new 100 here and an 80 average would be solid so I’m predicting that from KK, Yeo and Henderson at the very least for now.
    In midfield banking on the good old Byrne Manoeuvre on Wallis and Selwood so expecting to quickly flip them to premo’s, whilst Gray will eventually make it into my forward line.

    Any feedback welcome 🙂

    A word on my team:

    Def: I am thinking of puttting Pearce or Jaksch both have played well in the Nab challenge but don’t know if they can cope good teams, another option would be Ibbotson but I don’t know if either Pearce or Ibbotson will get the tagging job due to Crowley not playing. Another issue are the rookies, I just don’t know if Mcintosh and Dalgleish are going to play and not get the vest. Lastly i have gone with 4 players over $400k and unsure if maybe i should downgrade one.

    Mid: I am unsure about Gaz he is a God but he hasn’t played in the preseason and don’t know if he can get enough points for his high price, so I have left him out. Again i am unsure if i have picked the right rookies and if i have picked to many on the field which i have currently 3 including Cripps.

    Ruck: I am liking the two ruck men in Goldstein and Nic Nat because i think both can rack up some big scores. But I might change Nic Nat for Bellchambers for the extra cash. Maric has been impressing me but I don’t want to spend to much money on the rucks. Thoughts ?

    Fwd: Before i used to have bontempelli but kicked him out for Krakouer and now have Salem, Clark and Hogan on the field and I am considering to go with two rookies instead of three.

    Please comment your thoughts down below!!!

    If Ablett is not named will likely go to Beams. Vandenberg not elevated from Rookie list so is likely to change to a playing Rookie
