Solid defence, Lloyd probably not my cup of tea, in that range I like Roberton. Could possibly go O'Shea to Keefe if named to free up some cash.

Mids look ok, I've gone 7 deep here but you have a much stronger forward line.

Would pick one of Sauce/Grundy/Goldy for the rucks. Love the Balta pick, will get games this year with Griffiths off to the US. Probably our best forward option after Jack.

Forwards look super strong, all those guys are on my short list.

This is the strongest team I've seen by far. 15 potential keepers.
Only issue is having enough cheap rookies line up round one.
You've fit 15 in by avoiding LDU,Brayshaw,Christenson, Ah Chee,Brodie,Cerra types but u may have to drop a prem or two if some expensive rookies turn out to be must haves and/or there's not enough cheap rookies.
Well done though I'm impressed.

A true guns and rookies team. Love it.

Nice looking team and like the guns and rookies approach

Couple of concerns I have are the injury interrupted preseasons of Billings, Heeney and Nat so monitor progress. Just personal do not like starting players who do not play in JLT.

Not sure how much cash you have left but second concern is upgrading rookies if you have to to get team on park. An option if required maybe to drop a prem to one of the fallen prem mid picers such as Griffen, O'Meara, Christensen and co without really effecting structure,

As others have said this is a really strong team.

My concern is the lack of 150-200k rookies in the team as they are all basement price and if they don't get games you will have to downgrade someone to try and get rookies that will start.

Nic Nat to Jacobs is what I would recommend if you can fund it.

Post by: smashbox on February 15, 2018, 12:43:53 PM
Thanks guys!

Like i said team/rookies will change depending on selection.

Also will be looking long and hard at Heeney, Billings, NicNat at how they are coping without any preseason. Heeney did really well last year coming back form injury which is a positive.

Thinking long and hard about Christienson in the forwards.

Backs: E. Yeo, R. Laird, M. Hibberd, J. Lloyd, T. Doedee, I. Cummings (C. O'Shea, S. Murray)

Mids: P. Dangerfield, N. Fyfe, D. Beams, P. Cripps, J. Omeara, P. Dow, Z. Bailey, D. Barry (J. Worpel, T. Kelly, J. Dawson)

M. Gawn, T. Goldstein (N. Balta)

Forwards: I. Heeney, J. Billings, L. Dahlhaus, D. Smith, A. Christiensen, B. Fritsch (P. Ahearn, W. Rioli)

Tinkered with the team a little bit, think it works well.
Title: Re: RATE MY TEAM. TOP 1% every year - Rate for Rate
Post by: Money Shot on February 23, 2018, 03:01:05 PM
Probably the weakest midfield I have seen on FF however your other lines are just so strong.

14 keepers + bundy/O'meara is a very good effort.

Only concern would be the midfield is where the points are made up and missing out on the Martin/Dusty/Crouch/Kelly types early on could be a concern.

B: E. Yeo, R. Laird, M. Hibberd, J. Sicily, T. Doedee, J. Finlayson (S. Murray, I. Cumming)

C: P. Dangerfield, N. Fyfe, M. Bontempelli, P. Cripps, S. Coniglio, J. O'mera, Z. Bailey, D. Bailey (T. Kelly, J. Worpel, N. Holman)

R. M. Gawn, S. Lycett (N. Balta)

F: I. Heeney, J. Billings, M. Walters, D. Smith, A. Christiensen, B. Fritsch (L. Keefe, W. Rioli)

Concerns are:
Sicily - not sure if he is gonna break out and go 95+
O'Meara - my thinking is he is 100k more than ur expensive rookies and has potential to go 90+
Lycett - with Vardy out and NicNat still being eased in he will be safe for the first month then what? I think they will play Vardy forward when he comes back in as he played that at Geelong. I think all 3 can work.
Walters - mid time expected, good end to the year can he take it one step further
Christiensen - worth the extra money over a rookie?

Very good team, similar to mine in many respects.

Considered Armitage instead of O'Meara?
Title: Re: RATE MY TEAM. TOP 1% every year - Rate for Rate

Just wanting to see how Armitage goes in the second game but strongly considering him

Looks good. Defence and fwds very strong. That would be almost exactly the same 4 players I would run with on both lines if going that way. Bundy is worth it for sure unless more decent rookies emerge.
Are u happy with Conigs+ Cripps as M7+8 or would u be upgrading the lower scorer?
Only concerns are what happens if Lycett gets injured/dropped. You would probably have to drop a fwd or back and rely on Sicily to cover whichever line has weaker rookies on field. Which could actually work and is something I'm considering. Lycett needs a backup plan and Sicily could be part of that.
Other issue is no expensive rookies so less room to move with corrective rookie trades should a cheapie fail and a Brayshay/Dow/Brodie/LDU kill it early.
Overall its a strong team and only 5 rookies on field. That's a huge plus.
Title: Re: RATE MY TEAM. TOP 1% every year - Rate for Rate
Post by: Money Shot on March 07, 2018, 11:15:28 AM
Really like this team, Lycett makes the rest of the team look very nice and if you believe that he is best 22 with a fit Nic Nat/Vardy then I can 100% understand picking him. I highly doubt all 3 of them can play however and Nic Nat is a lock if fit and I think Vardy is the better forward.

Sicily seems to be a good pick if he continues to play across half back so with his DPP and round 12 bye I think he is a valuable pick. O'meara I think is a good pick as no one at Hawthorn apart from Mitchell looks capable of going 100+ so points are definitely up for grabs and he could easily take them. Walters is a really good pick as well if he is a pure mid and I think with Matera/Bennell in the side he will be. Christensen is 100% worth the extra money as he could easily average 75-80 and I think there will be very few forward rookies averaging over 60 this season.

Hope this helps :)

IF you had the $$ I would swap Yeo for Hurley due to Yeo's hip complaint during off season.

Other than that I really like the team, especially a non-cookie cutter midfield leaving out Dusty/Titch etc.
Title: Re: RATE MY TEAM. TOP 1% every year - Rate for Rate
Post by: smashbox on March 07, 2018, 05:29:31 PM
I'm still not sold on Hurley. I think Yeo with mid time is the safer bet

Darcy Cameron to come in now with Naismith going down. Makes the Lycett choice a little bit safer now. Still very risky!

I'd be picking Yeo over Hurley... Low possessions high impact. Intercepts and lots of contested possessions dramatically increases points per possession. Unless he accumulates a lot of clangers, his midfield time will help him eliminate a lot of his under 70 scores. Will go forward and hit the scoreboard at times too.

Hurley hasn't really been playing as a lockdown defender, he also has two seasons of premo scoring behind him. On top of that Yeo has been battling a hip injury and also tanked in the tail end of 2017. One ton in his last 11 matches tells me he's the one carrying the risk.

Agreed. Not sure why people are considering Yeo when we know what we're going to get from all of Laird, Hibberd and Hurley. Yeo the only ? mark, and IMO, the one thats best to leave out and pick up during the year once we know his role (and if he is scoring well :P)

Just cant decide between Sicily, Lloyd, Shaw
out of the three shaw is probably the safest pick in regards to knowing what role he will be playing in his particular team. Although for Sicily and Lloyd to perform at their max we need them to stay in their preferred roles, such as Sicily staying in the backline and not being moved to the forward line where he doesnt score as well. Also lloyd is very consistent  but he generally in the past hasnt seemed to score massively, which means you most likely will be able to pick him up for reasonable price later on.

For me, Im going Sicily. Although he may be the riskiest pick out of the three, I see alot of value in picking him due to his dpp, low price and friendly bye (forgot which round it was)

Nice team,  good depth on each line by have weaker m5 in cogs.
Great forward line strong back premos though Yeo role is unclear and may drop price significantly. 
i see gawn, goldy and DC as the best ruck line available.
Heeney only a question mark due to preseason disruption and i have lobb over Dev. 


Would be very comfortable starting Rd1 with your team though.  Well done

Thanks! Just still considering starting Lycett as he has good JS until the bye with vardy out. Still think R2 is uncertain and trading him to Ryder post port's bye is a good option.

It just makes sense to me to pick Lycett I know the feels. But then I go to this page (http://www.fanfooty.com.au/player/scott-lycett) and scroll to his career fantasy stats and the Games column worries me. There's no out if he mucks up, it's a $277k hole that can't be fixed. If he makes it through 10 games then guaranteed he will be an amazing pick.

The first team I made (last week) had him in it. No one else above 250k from that original side has left except for him.

Solid team, would probably pick Hurley given Yeo has had hip issues. Also Hurley's backend to the season was top shelf.

Downgraded Danger to Gaz as a placeholder for the next week until Danger comes back with cash in hand to make the trade. Danger as a POD will be amazing

Post by: rodneycc on March 23, 2018, 02:22:33 PM
Yeah agree with Bully with Yeo for Hurley. Also will need to do something for Brodie. I'd also go Cameron to Olongo to make him the loophole man.

Overall pretty good structure I reckon. Good luck.


btw I have to say it...1% isn't actually that good in SC. I usually like it when it gives you top 0% (usually about top 200-300). I didn't even know 0% existed until I started playing SC.  :) :) :)
