The Dream Team

Written by Big Sexy on 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).
Def: Gibbs [MID], Deledio [MID], Broughton, Enright, Duffield, Fisher, Lake
Mid: Goddard [DEF], Swan, Ablett, Judd, Selwood, Didak [FWD]
Ruck: Sandilands, Cox
Fwd: Riewoldt, Chapman [MID], Franklin, Brown, Goodes [MID], Pavlich [MID]

Theory 2: I don’t want any players that will have bye’s during finals.
Def: Deledio [MID], Broughton, Duffield, Fisher, Shaw, Lake, Newman
Mid: Goddard [DEF], Swan, Ablett, Didak [FWD], Hodge, Montangna
Ruck: Sandilands, Cox
Fwd: Riewoldt, Franklin, Brown, Goodes [MID], Pavlich [MID], Rioli

NOTE: DPP’s are built in, as they need to be for any real team (Ruck excluded).  Also, bench excluded as they wont be premiums, and no point guessing what rookies will be on your bench.
Apologies: Boyd, Watson, A Swallow, Gilbee, Gilbert, Cross, DalSanto, Pendelbury, Hurn

Does this change your planned start team?

  1. I think it’s too prescriptive and thus limiting to have a set team that you are aiming for. It means you may miss an early trade to snare a Malceski, Grundy type from last year that you may have not had in your original team.

    That said i’m the guy contemplating starting Watson purely so i can do a mid-season sideways trade to GAJ so who am i to talk down this type of methodology.

    ———————————————————————————–

    Note- This is my opinion of both rookies who will play later and earlier in the year as well as players who will have to reagin their from from injuries etc. This will give me 4 trades for LTIs if i am in need of more i will try to make the best situation out of it and use it as a upgrade/downgrade as above.
    ————————————————————————————
    This means that i will be looking at a final team of if all goes well

  3. Barlow?? Rustee, he was awesome last year when he was 80k (remember Rich), if you think he will maintain 110ave, I would rethink. I would go as far to say he is most overpriced player in SC…. Anyway, just my opinion.
