  18. Dangerfield could be a disaster this year with the prospect of him leaving the club
    Too many mid rookies that might not make money i.e. vest candidates or emergencies IMOOC

  20. Assuming your rookies will all play on the ground and score well enough to create cash, It is a good side.
    As with all sides they won’t be complete until first round teams are out!

    First time I’ve really loaded up on the mids this preseason – have been running 4 premos to strengthen the other lines. Not sure how I feel about this one…

    Only 7 genuine upgrades required, plus a couple of sideways trades at the back end if Pearce and Geary don’t come on as hoped.

    Is the weakened forward line worth it to gain some potential monster scores from the Mids and Rucks?

  38. Hi all, great to be back on this site for another year – please tear this team apart. $14,200 in the bank.
    Dangerfield, Taylor (based on the role he’ll play) and Minson are my main concerns. The rookies will more than likely change based on round 1 selections.

  49. A word on my selections:
    The backline is stacked because my thinking is that rookie defenders are going to be spuds this year and this line will be the most difficult to upgrade. I want as many keepers as possible.
    Rookies on all lines will invariably change depending on R1 teams.
    I am unsure on NikNat and the Big Bellend but don’t know what else to do. I am foreseeing that all (or most) rucks will plummet in price pretty quickly, so don’t want to waste too much on them.
    I like having a bit of cash in the warchest for early upgrades and selection repairs. I don’t believe that success always relies on spending everything you have.
    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

  51. FWD line same as mine, I like Neale as POD in Mids, Mumford is always a risk but without risk there is no reward. Taylor and Pearce are the only concern for mine in Def but slim pickings down back this year.
    Overall competitive RD 1 side.
    Best of luck Jess


  52. Thoughts on Taylor Hunt for a DEF smokie? Knocked out 103 pts v Port on the weekend. Hardwick says if he keeps playing like that he’s a “monty” for Rd1.
    Watch closely in NAB3. If he starts in Rd1 could be just what the doctor ordered to fill the backline void…at just 290k.


  53. Any thoughts????? Cheers

  62. Thoughts on Giles given Bellchambers will most likely miss games plus long injury history. Giles has always scored well
    T/U Y
    T/D N


  63. I’m thinking Clancee will be better off in the tagging role as he will be forced to play more through the midfield. Yes, he had a shocker on the weekend but the more he gets used to it, the higher his scores could be. It also adds to his JS.

    Remember when Duffield played that role?

  66. Here we go, my first rate my team for the year.

    Smith, Shaw, Jaensch, Macmillan*, Jacksch, Saad (Hamling, Goddard)

    Ablett, Penles, Selwood J, Danger, Van Berlo, Newton, Anderson, Lambert, (Heeney, Vandenberg, Freeman.

    Jacobs, Nicnat, (Read)

    Gray, Dusty, Swan, Clarke, Karnezis, Hogan, (salem, Laverde)

    Still got $403,900 in the kitty as i haven’t finished playing around yet.

    * I want to see another good score in the next game to include Macmillan

    I want to try and get Griffen into the mids, maybe at the expense of VanBerlo

    I’m pretty happy with the forwards and rucks, and as it’s only my third year i’ve never been burnt by Karnezis, so i’m prepared to give him a go.

    Just need to play around with hopefully one extra premo in the mids and well, the defence just has me beat, but i think it has most people beat.

    Go on guys, rip it to bits ๐Ÿ™‚


  67. Backs: Simpson, Shaw, Newnes, Lumumba, Brown, Dalgleish (Edwards, Goddard)

    Fwds: Goddard, Martin, Swan, Clark, Tarrent, Hogan (Salem, Krakouer)

    $245,300 still in the bank.

    Think I need 1 more fwd upgrade and possibly a wines/griffen upgrade to a beams/Priddis.



  68. been oversees and out of SC for a year so might be a bit rusty. Picking players more on my opinion rather than last year form, would love some feedback though.

    Newnes, Lumumba, Ibbotson, Henderson, T.Hunt, A,Saad(gc) (N.Brown, Goddard)

    Pendlebury, J.Selwood, Boak, Griffen, A.Swallow, S.Selwood, Van Berlo, Newton (Boekhorst, Ellis-Yolmen, Freeman)

  69. Been tinkering with the myriad mid-pricers for months now and every draft team I’ve put together has left me disappointed. Always felt like there was something missing…

    So, I’ve decided to go large on the big guns early and hopefully get the right rookies to hold it all together. This is the closest I can get to a “pure” Guns n Rookies strategy.

    DEF: Toughest line by a long way this year. I’m stacking the premos early x 4. Don’t want to be left with non-playing rookies and clenching teeth all season trying to generate upgrade cash from too many risky mid-pricers in the backline. Malceski might drop a bit in price, but I’d rather have him early rather than play catch up all year. Can’t believe I’m even considering Brown at this stage. Consider the rest place holders until R1 teams are named.

    MID: 4 uber MIDS!!! Paying the big bucks now and hopefully never look back. Bit of a gamble on getting the right rookies to generate max cash from the cows in the midfield. But no fears about whether I’ve picked the right ‘break out’ player (i.e. Swallow, Crouch, Wines, Neale, Rich, Wells, etc). I’ll make early adjustment trades and jump sideways to get the boys on the bubble if I have to.

    RUC: Absolute Set and Forget – not bothering with any cover or swingmen and not taking any chances with risky mid-pricers. At this weight, if they break, straight up trade to the best available. Hopefully it’s later in the season so the top performers stick out like a mildly amusing metaphor.

    FWD: More options up forward for promising, or at the very least playing rookies. Salem and Clark’s performances in NAB starting to give confidence this will work out. Expect Gray will smash it this year and will be out of reach for many who don’t start with him, especially when most will also be chasing the likes of Malceski, Rockliff, 2nd premo ruck and hoping they all go down in price big time…

    So, here’s the result… with a few bucks left to tweak the rookies at the business end… $16K

    Tell me what you think SCT…

    Malceski, Shaw, Gibson, Newnes, Jaksch, Dalgleish (Goddard, Saad)

    Ablett, Rockliff, Pendlebury, Kennedy, Newton, Cripps, Boekhorst, Vandenberg (Ellis-Yo, Freeman, Krakouer)

    For me it’s either Pendles/ Heath Shaw combo OR Rockliff/ Rampe combo?
    Any thoughts welcome

    (Lonie, Krakouer)

    Clearly I have left GAblett out. This is not based on his injury, but based on the fact that he’s had no preseason and this isn’t typically favourable. I understand that he’s God, but I feel as if the money on out can be used elsewhere. In saying that, I still have $186K in the bank.
    Riewoldt is in my team for the first 6 weeks due to the draw and knowledge that he starts a season strong.
    Defence may appear light, but I can’t commit to any premiums that would provide me with consistent performance week in.

    Any other feedback would be greatly appreciated, cheers.


  73. I’ve made a few changes to my team. Here is my latest iteration:

    $22, 800 Remaining.
