2015 AF Rank - 811 2016 AF Rank - 854

As a fully fledged SC'er now, AF always takes a back seat.

I thought I'd start a single thread for those still having a crack to kick things off for the season.

My first iteration of my team looked straight showerhouse, have adjusted and this year I'm looking at value or players I see as underpriced and for me, my back line looks the most value, it leaves my forward line looking very weak, though I still have 400K to play with.  Have gone with expensive rookies too including Rowell, Anderson, Flanders, Cockatoo etc.

My team normally looks showerhouse at the start. I don't spend all that much on my backs, like to get a few cheapies in there with my uber premo's. I feel a little more confident about my team after seeing some warm up games and knowing which guys are likely to get a spot in the best 22. The rookies you mentioned i have had in my team, they come and go lol. Rowell and Cockatoo haven't left yet though.

I'm only looking at spending top dollar on Macrae, Grundy and Whitfield at this stage, trying to pinpoint the rest as underpriced which is easier said than done!

I think you can afford to go without Whitfield in AF at the start, because of his huge price (presuming I keep Grundy and Macrae) and due to the potential depth of GWS midfield. Going deeper in the mids, to compensate, as good value to be found there

I've thought about this too, but haven't actually look at what I can do if I remove Whitfield.  The interface of AF hurts my head.

Interesting, Whitfields average last year was 107 yet he's priced higher than that.  ???

Whitfield is just country miles ahead of any other forward. If he drops 50k it's not going to worry me too much.

That's the other side, the headache trying to bring him in if you don't start him.

Looking at ROB for R2 and possibly down to Lycett if he is the sole ruck for Port.

I'm looking at Sauce Jacobs but he will need to show something in the practice matches. Maybe Nit Nat ? upgrading to Gawn as soon as possible.

Think a lot of us are still trying to work it out and will be a suck and see as the season progresses,
