Again, we’re on our quest to find the best team for the remainder of the season. In this poll we explore the midfield………
Which MIDs would you think will bring the most points FROM THIS POINT ONWARDS? Players are in order of current price. You have eight selections……..

Finding this a real tough choice when many have a very injury prone body. That constant thought of Kelly/Fyfe/Treloar etc. With a soft tissue injury will be a massive setback. They may averaging higher, but missing just 1 game would be a 110 points less. So they’d need to average 120 to make up for it
This logic is inherently flawed as if you have bench cover, they will score 60-120. Nullifying the lost points to between 50 to 0. That’s a 5ppg increase which is manageable. Kelly will average 125 and Yeo for example 110. Hence, selecting Kelly is justified even if he misses one game. And if he doesn’t you’re laughing.
But the poll is asking for them to score the most points for the end of the season. You can cover them, but that doesn’t mean they will score the most points.
Counting on an injury is also a bit inaccurate.
No so, it’s all part of the assessment. If you think player is likely to be injured or suspended, then you have to include that in your assessment of most points.
Think we can just about lock in 6/8 of the top 8 (with Oliver the only questionable lock)
Kelly, Neale, Cripps, Fyfe, Macrae & Oliver
I feel like most of the other mids fall into one of two categories and what you would rather have in your side will probably go along way to who you go for;
The accumulators (commonly more consistent than explosive): Merrett, Gaff, Treloar Crouch etc
The explosive jets (can average anywhere from 140-80): Bontempelli, Sloane, Yeo, Parker, Coniglio, Martin etc
Oliver is far from a top 8 lock and should be replaced by Cunnington.
I did say questionable lock to be fair. I certainly wouldn’t argue getting rid of him from that list but after having such a bad season he’s still averaging 106.
Yeah but that’s thanks to a 175 against Gold Coast. He’s basically the same as Coniglio right now, except Oliver obviously has better history to back him up. If you take out the 175 though Oliver has averaged 99 for the year, which is a serious concern.
If we’re looking from this point forward though it’s still more than possible Oliver is top 8.
What’s the difference if he scored 175? You could say “…apart from that 53 where he got tagged by DeBoer…”. He scored what he scored. Perhaps you could argue excluding an injury score, but otherwise you’re cherry picking.
Will have 7/8 after trades this week, missing the #1 in Josh Kelly. Difficult to justify bringing him in for 650k over a Gaff who should also score very well, with no injury risk and saving 90k.
Maybe im just trying to make myself less hurt over the fact im 20k short of Josh Kelly this week who has a better bye than Gaff 🙁
Grabbed J Macrae last week and can grab Cripps now or in RD15 to complete my mids of: L Neale, N Fyfe, J Kelly, J Macrae, P Cripps, C Oliver, Z Merrett and R Sloane.
Only 3 were purchased/started above 600,000 (L Neale, C Oliver, N Fyfe) with the rest below 600,000 and C Oliver the most expensive mid selection.
I chose Merret over J.Kelly 3 weeks ago. Massive regrets
Merrett should be able to minimise the differential to an extent and should still be a solid selection. Happy to have grabbed Kelly in RD9 before his price rose over 600,000 as in the preseason I identified GWS’s hard start then relatively easy draw till the byes. Around that same period (RD8-RD9) I also chose the Hoff over Dunkley due to the cash saved helping upgrades and DPP which has currently cost me 219 points over the past month.
