The TEAM 2018 – MidPricers

Written by Schwarzwalder on March 19 2018

Welcome back to the TEAM for 2018!ย  Where anyone stopping by the site can help form this unstoppable force……….

There are still a few unseen forces ahead of us that could shape the TEAM in ways we can’t foresee……..yep, I’m talking about the AFL Coaches and their bloody selection tables ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  Due to the drawn out fixture this weekend, changes may need to be made in a hurry.ย  Rookies might not make the cut, premiums might not get up for the first Round…..who knows?ย  We might be forced to take a MidPricer or two…..worst case scenario.ย  The following polls are here for that outcome………

  1. For team structure.

    Starting with a mid priced M/D in the mids D6/7 could be a good idea.

    A Brayshaw ( Melb )

    Hear me out.

    Yes he may get hit in the head again. If he doesn’t, he should ave 80/90 till the Byes making $150k and we can move him back any time . Thats if we only if we have Coffield / Finlayson?

    I like him over JOM and Arma due to his DPP.

    1. Having a mid-pricer at M6 or M7 would limit the number of midfield rookies we could take on, which is not ideal, as this is the most promising line as far as cash cows go. And he’s probably a bit risky for M5.

      That said, the DPP status is handy, and he could potentially slot in at, say, D6 come season’s end. That is, of course, if he makes it until season’s end. The sad reality is that for all his talent, he is perhaps one or two concussions away from an early retirement. The chances of this happening to him at half back are of course lower than they are in the midfield, but he has shown over the years that he gets knocked out as easily as Joel Selwood bleeds.

      The question, then, is whether or not his potential upside (which I am not denying exists) is worth that sort of risk.

      1. I agree Jack.

        At least his DPP gives us the option to downgrade him to any of the more expensive cows in the mids or Def.

        Eg: Brodie / Dow / Rayner/ Coffield /Finlayson. etc.

  2. Not sure where we are classifying Petracca and Smith but I feel like they’re going to slip through the cracks in the selection process.

    1. Smith was 3rd most popular FWD and will get a start in the TEAM. Petracca not quite. I reckon he had his chance….

        1. Yes…..and everyone decided Smith was good enough to make the starting line-up (3rd popular FWD) while Petracca didn’t quite get there (7th popular FWD). You can’t argue that Petracca slipped through the cracks when Smith clearly made the TEAM in the same poll. The Coaching Staff made the decision and I’ll stand by that……..

            1. True…..but using the Rate My Team threads as an indicator, Smith & Petracca are being handled as premiums up FWD(already being locked in for the season) while Caddy barely makes an appearance.
              There’s no need for panic. In two weeks time, the Coaching Staff might force the decision to get Petracca in before any price rise. Until then, I’d say the majority has made it clear which way to go…….

  3. Should Sicily be thrown up as a forward as well given thatโ€™s the most likely line needing a mid pricer?
