The Run Home – Perfect Team

Written by Schwarzwalder on June 30 2018

Here is the unbeatable, ultimate team that you simply need to have for the last nine weeks of the year, as voted by you………….

DEFENDERS:

Elliot Yeo (WCE), Kade Simpson (CAR), Rory Laird (ADE), James Sicily (HAW), Jake Lloyd (SYD) & Jack Crisp (COL)

 

MIDFIELDERS:

Nat Fyfe (FRE), Tom Mitchell (HAW), Patrick Cripps (CAR), Clayton Oliver (MEL), Patrick Dangerfield (GEE), Josh Kelly (GWS), Lachie Neale (FRE) & Josh P Kennedy (SYD)

 

RUCKS:

Max Gawn (MEL) & Brodie Grundy (COL)

 

FORWARDS:

Toby McLean (WBD), Isaac Heeney (SYD), Robbie Gray (PTA), Devon Smith (ESS), Justin Westhoff (PTA) & Tom McDonald (MEL)

 

So there it is, Coaches…….your ultimate team for the last nine weeks of 2018.  How many of these guys have you already got in your side (I got 15…..will be 16 when I can afford Grundy)?  Any glaring errors that you just can’t believe?

  1. 16. Having made a faux pas last night, I’ve decided to just go for it from here. Will have 18 of them in two weeks, with one trade left for injuries. I’ll be fine, surely!!?

  2. It’ll be very interesting to see how this matches up against ACTUAL at season’s end, but looks great.
    I do think Dusty will end up in there but at whose expense is hard to say. Am sure plenty’ll disagree with me …

  3. 14, still have Stef Martin who may become Grundy if form drops away. Not sold on Westhoff seems to play a good 1st half & fade in the 2nd.

    1. The odd sub-110? He’s only had three all year: 95 in round 1 v HAW, 109 in round 9 v STK, and 98 in round 12 v MEL). He has also had three in the 11x.

      If you can afford to get him next round, that is when he’ll be a bit cheaper (~600k if he scores his average this weekend).

      1. I was thinking more about the analysis that was done on him during the byes. Given the comparative quality of his ruck match-ups pre- and post-byes, it is thought he is more likely to drop in ave and hence price over the coming weeks. Either way, we can analyse from week to week and you can grab him when you think the time/price is right.

  4. Thanks for putting that together Schwarzwalder, it’s a very interesting exercise to crowd-source this type of thing. I wonder how much people’s votes are tinted by what they want to happen (i.e., who they have) versus what they think will eventuate.

    I am missing 6 before my trades this week but was planning on bringing in Neale along with Gray or Westhoff this week. The others I don’t have are Crisp, Kelly, and JPK. Of those, I can see Kelly / JPK / Crisp outscoring my current Crouch / Coniglio / MWalters set-up but I don’t think it’ll be by a lot (definitely not enough to warrant a trade).

    1. Yep. Thanks Schwarz and agree Daniel, tho’ personally I voted on what I thought and NOT who I had.

      I don’t have (do have):
      Lloyd (Savage)
      Neale, JPK (Coniglio, Martin)
      Grundy (NicNat)
      Smith (Mundy)

      On current averages and likely form, you’d think Lloyd and Grundy should be the two I prioritise?!

      1. Savage to Lloyd should get you about 20 points a week (on average).
        NicNat to Grundy may net you 10-15 a week.

        Martin to JPK or Neale could be a larger gain but I think most coaches are anticipating that Martin is going to (at some point) turn it around.

  5. I have 17 and will have 20 if all goes to plan over the next 2 or 3 weeks.
    Only ones I won’t have is JPK and Crisp
