    If there are no defense rookies, then downgrading bellchambers and getting a mid priced like Pearce is an option.

    Team is changing daily. I know there are injury worries there but if they line up for Rd1, that’s good enough for me! Any feedback greatly appreciated!

    Reasonably happy with the structure. Rookies subject to change (Biggs, Cripps etc. vs Newton, VanBerlo?) (Karnezis in the forward line?).

    Still considering Smith in for NicNat, which would free up $80k. Also giving some serious thought to Dahlhaus – reckon he could lift a bit more this season, but not sure I can do much with the $30-50k I’d make by downgrading one of my top 3 forwards.

  18. I’ve changed my team about a thousand times, probably got another 500 changes to go before found 1!

    Backs: jeansch, newnes, Langdon, vlaustin, c Pearce, dick (Meynard & saad)

    Forwards: Martin, swan, Mitchell, j kelly, Clarke, karnezis (daniel, lambert)

    I’ve deliberately gone slim in defence, I genuinely don’t rate any of the premiums to deliver against what they cost.
    Thoughts ladies and gents?

    A tidy 48k remaining in the bank


  28. I think that polec will do as well as wines this year if not better but that’s just a gut feeling and after not going with my gut last year with gray I am gonna stick with him. Fasolo showed heaps of promise last season before his injury then he came back early and re injured it 3 weeks later after average games because he still wasn’t right. He missed 6 games and by then the pies were heading for an average season and his new role was sacrificed to try and play forward sneaking goals thus resulting in sub80 scores. Suckling can be as dangerous as anyone with ball in hands but I am still considering maybe Higgins instead but I heard that he has had an average lead up and won’t be as good as he could be come round 1. Still though this is a first draft mate someone will do something and things will change no doubt about it


  29. Current team below. I have thrown it round a bit and tried to structure it for byes. Had Franklin in and Goldy but went with value picks in the ruck. Any comments most appreciated.
    B J Kelly H Shaw Innes Ibottson H Goddard Mckenzie (Vojo Raibow N Newman)
    C Ablett Pendles Sloan Selwood A Swallow Broekhurst NVB Vandenburg (Freeman J Andersn N Krakouer)
    R Nic Nat Berger (T Read)
    F Gray Goddard Swan D Martin Hogan M Clark (Harper Lamb)


  30. Getting there..(4K left over)
    H.Shaw, Newnes, Higgins, T.Langdon, Geary, C.Pearce – H, Goddard & A.Saad
    GAJ, Pendles, Boak, Danger, A.Swallow, Rich, J.Anderson, Lambert – Heeney, Vandenberg, Freeman
    Goldstein, Z.Smith – T.Read
    R.Gray, D.Martin, Swan, C.Salem, M.Clark, Karnezis – Hogan & C.Daniel

    Few mid pricers down back to get a good start in the o/a whilst also having plenty of cash cows in the squad to fund improvements. Mid’s will either be used as up / downgrades in due course or Higgins, C.Pearce etc may stick about due to lack of Def prem’s


  31. Looking at a slightly different structure given the lack of DEF rookies.

    Smith, Shaw, Dunn, Newnes, Pearce, Goddard (Dick, Hamling)

    Ablett, Pendlebury, Jelwood, Greene, Cripps, Newton, Anderson, Boekhurst (Heeney, Vandenburg, Freeman)

    Maric, Naitinui (Cox)

    Gray, Martin, Bartell, Swan, Hogan, Clarke (Lambert, Krakeour)

    I’m thinking the clock has turned back three years where the MID rookies are the most likely to:

    – score higher;
    – have better JS;
    – escape the vest;

    And therefore be more effective and efficient to upgrade before the byes.


  32. Latest version.

    There’s a few names here that I think will get some reaction. One in particular.

    Smith, Newnes, Higgins, Pearce, Whitecross, Hamling
    Dick, Saad

    Ablett, Beams, Sloane, Ward, Greene, Wines, Wallis, Anderson
    Vandenberg, Boekhorst, Krakouer

    Smith, Grundy

    Franklin, Martin, Swan, Bontempelli, Daniel, Lambert
    Hogan, Steele


  33. A few points for consideration:

    – obviously Missy is the big one to question. How many years have we said he could either be gold of crud?
    – Whitecross for me is not best 22. That’s two major risks in your DEF;
    – great MIDS but two GWS and you could be caught short if there is a Tyson or two amongst the MARs;
    – I never like second year age group rookies as how many over the years have become premium keepers?

    However, if this is the year of the midpricers you will be well placed mate!


  34. Hey Guys, Would love a bit of feedback, normally stick to a GnR strategy but have whacked a few more mid pricers in this time around.v

    1st Draft so tear it a new one!

    DEF: Shaw, Hibberd, Newnes, Clancee Pearce, Whitecross, Hamling (Goddard, Edwards)

    MID: Ablett, Pendles, Beams, Swallow, Rich, Vanberlo, Newton, Anderson (Vanderberg, Ellis-yolman, Freeman)

    RUCK: Jacobs, Nicnat (Osbourne)

    FWD: Goddard, Martin, Swan, Tmitch, Clark, Hogan (Karnezis, Steele)

    180k in the kitty!

    First run through, 315,600 left over, need to upgrade, but whom is the question? Just tell me how it is. Cheers fellas


  36. Big Risks, Big Rewards
    Rookies are not set, will change before round one.
    I really want fyfe in but cant fit in him, he will be the first player to upgrade to.
    L.Neale’s price will rise $120 000, A big pod, Fyfe, Hill and Mundy will be tagged, neale is a loose man, same with greene, Greene’s price will rise 100 grand, Ward and Griffen will have taggers on to them. Both are guns.

    Defenders are little weak, no surprise there but mid prices and rookies will average the same anyways, that happens every year.

    Rucks: Set and Forget. If one of them goes down, no problems, 30 trades, plenty of trades left, not concerned about that.

    Forwards are little weak, not worried about that.

    Def: B. Smith, H.Shaw, J.Newnes, C.Pearce, B.Whitecross, H. Goddard, M.Marteit, A.Saad

    Mid: G.Ablett, S.Pendlebury, J.Selwood, T.Greene, A.Swallow, L.Neale, N.Van Berlo, B, Newton, J.Anderson, N.Freeman, A.Vandenberg

    Fwds: L.Franklin, D.Martin, D.Swan, M.Clark, J.Hogan, C.Daniel K.Lambert, N.Krakouer,

    I would love to have any suggestions ๐Ÿ™‚ cheers coaches.


  37. Hey Guys if you could please comment below if there should be any changes to the squad below.

    Fwd: B.Goddard, D.Martin, D.Swan, S.Higgins, P.McCartin, J.Hogan, M.Clark, K.Lambert

    I am a bit worried with my defensive line and don’t know if i should replace any of them. I am also not sure if P.McCartin is the best choice or if i should go with someone else.

    Please reply if any changes need to be made,


  38. Just gotta say, there are some damn good teams this year, everyone’s stepped up there game. I’d love if someone from this site could win it!! Also massive shout out to anyone that’s given out advice, you all rock!


  39. Hey Guys if you could please comment and give me some feedback if there should be any changes to the squad below.

    The 3-6-1-3 are all players i think will be top 6 (8 for mids) in their position.

    I changed my team this morning, after being comfortable with a team for the past week. The older team had: Langdon(D), Mcrae(M) & Mitchell(F) in place of Shaw(D), Beams (M) and Karnezis (F).

  50. Hi all,

    I went and figured out who I most wanted, at least as of now, plugged it in and came up with the below team. One minor issue (don’t want to say problem) is the massive amount left over! Clearly some rookies will need to be replaces with some guns, once more is know. Very curious what you all think since this is my first attempt at a planned team. Thanks lots!

    All Priests Over 75 five a side.

    Give me your thoughts, i picked sidebottom as a POD i had him last year and he killed it, he can pump out big scores randomly and still get that 100 average. I have also gone with Maric as a POD ruck as i think the nic nat and luey combo could spell disaster if one of them gets injured and i dont see them both playing 22 games each this season. In the backline i have only one rookie spot being taken by goddard as there is a massive lack of rookies and premiums in the backline! i hope to fill that backline up with full premos ASAP.

    With 80k left im tempted to upgrade griffin to a blue gem premuim but i think he is way undervalued and will do well at GWS this year, i guess i will see as it gets closer to the seasons start.

    Pick it apart all you want ๐Ÿ˜€


  52. Here’s mine. Now the rookies aren’t all a lock..obviously will chop n change come round 1 but I wanna get an idea of what ive got left in the bank and have a full side locked in for now.

    Malceski-Smith-Newnes-Sheppard-Whitecross-HGoddard (Lever-Rainbow)

    Ablett-Fyfe-Priddis-Wines-Swallow-Anderson-Lambert (Vand-Heeney-Menadue)

    Goldy-NicNat (Read)

    Gray-Martin-Swan-Salem-Hogan-Lamb (Karnezis-Lonie)

    WIth 200k sitting in the bank wheres my weakness? Should I upgrade for a rookie for a mid pricer or a premium for heavy premium?

    Also I like the players but ive ended up with the most expensive Defender, Midfielder and Forward. Is this gunna hurt me?

    All thoughts appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚

  55. A bit still to do prior to Rd 1, but happy with where things sit right now:

    DEF: Simpson, Shaw, Hodge, Kelly, Steinberg, Dick (Goddard, Vjojo-Rainbow)

    MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Sloane, Kennedy, Van Berlo, Heeney, Boekhorst, Vandenberg (Ellis-Yolmen, Freeman, Dumont)

    RUCK: Goldstein, Naitanui (King)

    FWD: Deledio, Goddard, Martin, Swan, Clark, Hogan (Krakouer, Lambert)

    Rookies are obviously likely to change through NAB cup, but I have $86k remaining which leaves me with a bit of wiggle room.

    I’ve gone for a few old heads in Kelly and Hodge in the backs. Not expecting massive scores, but hoping they deliver consistent 90’s. Like most, I can’t find any value in defence and think an older, but more reliable back line is the way to go this year. Not convinced with Newnes so not jumping on that bandwagon. If he is as good as everyone has been saying, I’ll happily pay more for him when he proves it. Also considering Hibberd pending ASADA outcomes.

    Happy with mid choices. Ablett and Pendlebury first picked every year. Sloane and Kennedy consistent, contested players who have a solid scoring history which should continue.

    Hoping for set and forget rucks, Naitanui’s fitness yet to be seen.

    Many options in the forwards, surprised I haven’t seen Goddard in too many teams. Has been a SC gun for many years and can’t see him slowing down at all.

    Looking forward to some more competitive NAB games to consider. Praying for nil injuries. Shattered for the likes of McKenzie and Liberatore.

    What do you guys reckon? Am I on the right track?
