Don Cottagers has been toiling away providing information on what positions blokes will be playing in next year so I’m giving him his own post.
Keep up the great work, mate.
Official 2014 AFL fantasy sports news:
– Luke Hodge, Sam Mitchell and Jarrad McVeigh have ALL been confirmed as D/M DPPs for next season.
Whilst Hodge, who has only had two 20-game seasons in the last six years, will be a touch-and-go call for starting squads, the other two are going to be next to impossible to pass on.
McVeigh has only missed six games in eight years and is coming off a 105 average after a move to lucrative defensive sweeping duties.
Mitchell may be 31 next year but he has only averaged less than 100 once in the last nine years (98.8) and he has only missed ten games of footy in eight years (of which at least a couple were restings).
– As expected by most, Brendon Goddard has (rightly) been stripped of his DPP and will be a pure M in 2014.
– The kids are going to be A LOT more expensive. Whilst the article is talking about AFL Fantasy rather than SC, the changes are transferable as both games are run by VS. In that game, Whitfield cost $183k this season whereas Boyd will be $262k in 2014! That should mean Boyd will debut at around the $285k mark in SC, which is astronomical. No prizes for guessing that VS want more viable alternatives to the ‘Guns n Rookies’ strategy that we love so much.
– Similarly, pick 77 in the draft (Johathon Marsh of the Pies) will be $135k. Last year, pick 77 was Bradley Hartman of the Cats who started (and remained as he didn’t play a game) at $102k in AFL Fantasy (and at $109k in SC). Again, if a similar percentage increase is used in SC 2014, it seems like even the cheapest kids will be costing around the $140k mark.
– Like I said, it’s an AFL Fantasy article, not SC, but if you want to check it out:http://www.afl.com.au/news/2013-12-05/price-is-right-for-stevie-j
