Title: 2019 Forwards
Post by: RaisyDaisy on February 06, 2019, 03:47:39 PM
We've had threads going for quite a while now for defenders, rucks, prem mids, mid price options, POD's and rookies - surprised it's taken this long but we now have this thread to discuss forwards

I really wish we had more good rookies and mid price options because the forward line is the worst line I reckon

So much value and options in the backline and mids, but other than Greene (who is still cooked) we've got nothing here, which is making it a pain to sort out

Discuss away!

At the moment I have Jack Martin at F4. Having a reasonable preseason for the first time and has been spending more mid time in match simulations.  He is out of contract this year as well and at 24 will be looking to make strong case for retention. Could lift average to 90/95 which will be ok for F6,

Probably a bit early to say there are no good rookies and mid pricers just yet Worpel is one to keep an eye on although a bit expensive same with Cameron at Brissie around the same price a bit of talk about him , Weller for Tiges who knows how he is going ? MacPherson for GC could be his year to stand up , Moore if he can stay on the track is a bargain , Lukosius , Rankine who will go well I think plus whatever rookies come up but till they sound the siren we don't know if it's a good or bad news.

Danger and Heeney locked. Gray was looking good until I heard Wines is coming back round 3 or 4.
Lots of premo options to choose from for F3 F4.
Wingard,Gray, Dunkley, Kelly, Menegola, Smith, Walters the main contenders for me.
Dunkley is a wait and see on midfield time.
 
Smith has limited upside given his reliance on tackles and the difficulty of backing up 8 tackles per game, plus Sheil coming in. Not a bad pick by any means but I'm looking for more potential/upside for the price.

Walters is tempting again given Neale's departure and Blakely injury. His injury/suspension history is the turn off.

Reckon we'll get enough rookie options from Setterfield, Parker, Cavarra, Corbett, Blakely, McHenry/McAdam

Greene will be hard to leave out if he plays round 1. Might be a shrewd move to have a plan to get him in when he does appear.
For example if another mid pricer fails like Libba/Miles/Roberton trade them to Greene using DPPs.
Conversely if he fails, have a similar plan but in reverse.

I'm looking to go set and forget. Even the better part of rookies are mostly the expensive ones in the fwds. Jack Billings at F5 and 1 rookie F6, is the plan. Greene is about the only value to be had, if your willing to take the risk. So load up the fwds and grab the value in def.

Set and forget is great in theory. But in the fwds more than any other line there is the most doubt as to who the top players will be in that position this year. (Danger aside)
Billings at F5? Surely that leaves defence vulnerable where there are even less rookies

Yep, I think Danger, Menegola, Heeney, Devon Smith should get to the top. And Billings should improve to the 90-95 mark, which will make him go close as well. There’s way more value to be had up the ground in the mids and def.

Don’t mind the pick at all but the only problem is that he shares the bye with some of the most successful forwards last season in Danger, Hawkins, Menegola, Heeney, Buddy and T Mac.

Almost every team will be starting with at least Danger and Heeney. Some of the others I mentioned are likely upgrade targets so hard to pick JJK for our starting sides imo.

Post by: jvalles69 on February 06, 2019, 09:44:10 PM
Danger, Dev, Wingard and Greene is how I'm currently rolling.  Greene's position is of course based on health.  I've got a gut feeling not to trust Heeney for some reason this year, and ifI'm wrong he'll be an upgrade target, don't feel his price will move much.

Good info from Ben here. I must admit I was firmly looking at JJK myself. Gonna win the Coleman and kick 100 this year.

Hadn't even looked at the byes to be honest because every year I plan for the, and it turns to shower anyway but no doubt it'll become an issue

I can just see this doing my head in already haha

The guys had next to no preseason and if history has told us anything it's that players who have interrupted preseasons almost always end u up missing games or drop their average

But, the price is what will suck us in

We can usually get Top forwards for 450-480k during the season as most of them inevitably drop in value at some point, so is a 100k discount enough for Greene considering that massive risks and very high chance he ends up missing games?

This is why both Greene and JJK aren't in my side at the moment. I just don't think they're cheap enough to warrant the risk, but I'm open to possibly starting one of them at F4 knowing that if something happens to the one I start, the other guy is there as any easy fix to trade to

And yeah, I'm all over the byes which is another reason I've never really considered JJK because that second week bye is already looking brutal

Just following up on the Toby Greene stuff, Leon also said that he has been running flat out for 4-5 weeks now so that's actually comforting to hear. Says he expects him to play Round 1 as already mentioned here, but also said he might even be a chance for a JLT match

After seeing that, and the nightmare that the forward line already is, I might put Tobias back in my side  :-X

Yep plus Ross said S.Hill would have played midfield had he been fit. The word from Ross is Mundy will play pure midfield (especially early) as they attempt to integrate the kids Cerra, Brayshaw, Giro and Crowden into more permanent midfield roles. Also wouldn't be surprised to see Conca come in and play a defensive midfield role too.

As for Mundy, I am all over him. Elite trainer and professional, he will slow down at some stage but I feel like this season won't be it. Can see him going close to triple figures, I mean, look at his numbers when Fyfe went out late in the season!

130, 80, 100, 116, 117, 109

Gun!

I can understand the interest in Mundy, but to replace Heeney? One guy is 34 this year past his best, the other is 10 years younger, is also set for more mid time, having a full preseason (unlike last year) and is just coming into his prime.

Yeah I raised Mundy as an option, but for F3

Danger and Heeney haven't moved from F1/2, and replacing Heeney with Mundy is not a good idea imo, but a solid F3 POD

I'll probably go with Mundy/Gray for F3 personally

As for Tobias, he's back in the side for now. I know he'll get injured or rubbed out, but I don't care anymore - his price allows me to set the rest of my side up much better, so that's worth it  ;D

I figure he'll be my F6, so for 350k can't complain too much I guess

This is exactly my thoughts on Greene.

If he's fully fit, an average around 95-100 is definitely on the cards, which will put him firmly in the top 10 forwards.

For 350k you can't complain with that.

Literally my whole line of thinking with my draft ranks, hence why my spreadsheet has a notes column. The data is phenomenal, an interrupted or incomplete preseason inevitably leads to a poor year either scoring, or injury wise. As always there are 1-2 exceptions each year but its as close as you can get to a lock in fantasy footy haha

Talking of flawless preseasons Lincoln McCarthy has not missed a session and has looked great, Not sure though whether I have the gonads to select him. Depending on Rookies in defence forward may downgrade Greene to Mccarthy and upgrade Roberton to  Williams. Will watch JLT but at the moment looks like a choice between Roberton/Greene and Williams/McCarthy.  McCarthy though would have to be exceptional though given the $248k price.

Toss a coin. Who will benefit the most from Dahlhaus departure. Dunkley would be my preference out of the 2 if forced to make a choice as I think he has the more upside.

Might be best to pass on both

Dunkley looks good, but let's not forget it was just 6 matches at the end the year that made him look good - that's an incredibly small sample size

He played 19 games last year - and for the first 13 he only averaged 80. Those last 6 rocketed him up to 95, and whether or not we will continue to get that leading into 2019 - who knows

I thought similar to that as well then I looked a bit closer his last 6 were nearly as a pure mid compared to playing up FWD with some stints in the mid and even a bit of tagging for the rest of the season , he is looking more appealing every day to me so much so I plonked him in the FWD line the other day .

He plays these run with roles and his SC suffers as a result. Exactly the same as Jack Steele, both score well when playing the free running mid game.

No idea why anyone would consider Dunkley. He scored like a beast when he pushed Bont to the forward line and was given the #1 inside mid role, but in 2019 Libba is back to claim his rightful position.

I agree with this and think Libba being back (and not getting injured) will affect Dunkley’s output. Need to watch him in JLT to see how they play him...

Jack Steele SC tagging Oliver 104 pts, tagging Wines 81 pts, v Cripps 144pts, Cotch/Martin 89pts, Ward 81, Macrae 118, Mitchell 121... not too shabby. FWIW I'm all over both.

I'm all for the fast start though. Could go 105+ for the first 3 months before slowly letting the younger guys take over.

I'd be happy if there's a definite role change or scoring plummet to sideways after that.

All things considered - are people forgetting last year was his first year of AFL footy?  Surely no chance of going backwards from last season's average of 93.

Danger and Heeney locked F1-F2. Then completely at a loss as to who should be F3-F4. No one really jumping out at me, question marks over roles (Dunkley, McLean,Smith, Gray, Wingard). Interrupted or limited preseasons (Buddy, Wingard, Menengola) and the just general question marks on the rest such as age, consistency, ability, 2nd year blues.....

Yeah there's much better choices down back, so I'm looking to start Moore/Rookie at F4, possibly Greene then rookies, so just need an F3

For now I've got Mundy in - super durable, 90+ guaranteed and touted as going back to a full time mid role now

Danger, Heeney, Mundy, Moore, Setterfield, Corbett (Parker, Cavarra)

At this time of the year when we try to settle on structures it does our heads in. And sorry RD ,y forward setup at the moment as exactly the same except have gone Bailey over Moore. Still really undecided at F3 like you -  Mundy could be any of Gray, Devon Smith. Menengola or Dunkley. Some JLT watching coming up.  So having fun with where to slot last midpricer. Roberton/Moore at D4; Miles/Roomie at M6; Greene/Rookie at F4.

Have you been living under a rock? Yes Wingard left but Polec left as well. Wines is injured to start the year and Ebert has been training as a forward. There’s 4 guys immediately out of the mid rotation. It’s no secret Gray has been training as a mid and will spend more time in the guts this year.

@Daicos, it’s fine mate, you field your shower forward rooks hahahah. Defensive rookies look good and so do the mids so I’ll load up there thanks.

Defensive rookies
Only fielding two defensive rookies in Collins and Logue, and have Darcy Moore.
Duursma who lit up PA's intraclub the other day and Hore. Options include Quaynor, and possibly Watson/McKay from North. Scrimshaw, Clark (Geelong) and Cedric Cox (Brisbane) could all get games too.

Mid Rookies
Walsh, Constable, Bewley pretty self explanatory.
Bench Hind, Gibbons, Atkins. Bailey Smith, Ely Smith, Valente, Hately, Caldwell all options too.

McHenry will be lucky to get games, and the GC lads will be poor scorers. Stuck deep in GC's forward line? Yuck
I have Parker, think he could be good. But would hate to rely on so many forward rooks who have to rely on goals to score.

Defensive rooks and mid rooks are far superior than forward rooks for that reason alone.
Title: Re: 2019 Forwards
Post by: Daicos. on February 17, 2019, 02:19:07 PM
Not bad, but your missing out on a premo elsewhere (fwds are the lowest scoring line) to have that.

Defensive rooks and mid rooks are far superior than forward rooks for that reason alone.

DEF: Scrimshaw, Clark, Watson would be next to zero chance. Cox is a spud for SC, and McKay an outside chance at best and will likely be a horrible SC scorer too

MID: One of Constable/Atkins possibly, but Valente and Caldwell are zero chance, and Hately is an outside chance at best

As for forwards, Setterfield, Corbett, Cavarra and Parker all looking likely, and then guys like Moore (pricier), Rozee, Burgess (I'd play in def personally) are all good chances too

I know this is the forwards thread, but there is easily just as much good fwd rookies than there is def right now. If anything, there's better forward rookie options, especially as they're all cheap rookies too and not the 150k+ investments that most defense ones are
Title: Re: 2019 Forwards
Post by: _wato on February 17, 2019, 05:25:31 PM
So why is Scrimshaw no chance when Birchall wont playa and theres no Burton left around their defence.
Clark plays for Geelong and Tuohy is touch and go for round 1. Chris Scott plays the rookies
Watson might be no chance but McKay could play. Tarrant May miss Rd 1.

1 of Caldwell and Hately will play Round 1 imo

Funny that half the forward rookies including moore are DEF eligible so really doesn’t change anything. I have heard nothing about Cavarra so not sure on him. Already spoken about the GC blokes, they will be spuds.
Title: Re: 2019 Forwards
Post by: RaisyDaisy on February 17, 2019, 05:31:34 PM
Well from what I can tell this started because you think there is no good forward rookies, but the def rookies are good

I'd say it's 50/50, especially because there are several DPP guys

Either way, I wouldn't want to be starting a rookie at D4/F4 just yet. Having 2 on field and 2 on bench is making the most sense for me atm

Hawks have other guys who can play in their backline - I'd say plenty of them are ahead of Scrimshaw. Clark will play at one point but wouldn't be holding my breathe it's Round 1, and I've watched Leon Cameron - no rookie is likely to play for them, Hately the only possible outside chance based on what he said

McKay could play Round 1 and then be straight out - won't be good scorer either

We're all just speculating for the most part still. Let's just wait for JLT and go from there :)

You obviously don't based off a lot of the names you're confident on, so I guess that makes you the speculation king :P

I agree, apart from injury, all but a lock for top 10 and you'll get what you pay for.

He will still get his time in the forward line no doubt but might get a bit more midfield time early on in the season and if thats the case, its exactly when you want him as he will go 110 over this time.

Either start with him for the good start, or don't chase points as a first upgrade.

I haven't seen too many people praising him as an absolute lock to start. In fact, I was one of the very few who had Gray from the start, and his ownership still isn't massive so I don't think he is super popular, but the fact of the matter is there are not much prem forwards that have proven history

Buddy is injured, Dev Smith and Menegola are probably at max value with no real upside, and guys like Dunkley, McLean etc all have question marks over what position they'll play

Gray on the other hand, like Mundy, has years and years of proven 90+ scoring so you'd be pretty confident that's what you're going to get, regardless of position they play

"If he had any inkling as to where he might play, given Steven Motlop went to Port Adelaide, then it was probably as a high forward.

Yeah take anything that Scott says with a grain of salt this is a coach that leaves Dangerpants sitting in the FWD line when they are getting there butts kicked in the midfield Kelly will be a good FWD pick but there is something saying don't pick him,

"We haven't done it that much but we're confident he's got the capacity to do that. There will be very few players who will be prioritised above him in the midfield mix."

Following on from the robbie gray discussion ... I have tim kelly pegged at F3 over gray and extremely confident he is the better pick. This article just annoys me as perhaps his ownership grows by a few %.

He has the potential to be the highest scoring fwd this season.

It’s the homesickness and that damn bye that I’m not starting with him.

Can't see him beating Danger ;)

Biut yes, his bye is what has stopped me from ever considering him, because Danger and Heeney are locked and both have that bye already

And thats all I needed to hear. I had a nagging feeling they would push him to a flank and leave him there, but they clearly will be doing everything to try and keep him, and he has the X Factor to push past a lot of their mids.

Kelly Scooter and Duncan will be the 3 main guys through the mids, danger and jelly to split their time between forward and mids and guys like narkle parfitt Constable etc will be given extra run time through the mids. Was an article about this over a week ago.

Yes guys like Narkle, Parfitt etc will see a bit more mid time, but let's not be too gullible - The Cats will be pushing again this year, and that means their best players are still going to be doing the bulk of the work

Duncan could be an excellent MID POD, but as this is the forwards topic Kelly certainly looks good too, but just that bye is killing me. Upgrade target for me

Depends on role for Duncan, appeared to be pushed more outside and then down back later in the season. If he's back on ball 110+ is possible again but I can see Kelly pushing past him, brings something different imo

I have pondering going Kelly over Dangerfield. Frees cash to strengthen other lines.~$155K bought an additional ~26 points on the 2018 data
Kelly in the Mids vs Danger more forward orientated??

Kelly is definitely an option, but not in place of Danger. He'll probably make up that 26 points even if Kelly goes 100. Danger has lost weight to play more midfield.

As RD says the real problem is the dreaded Rd 13 bye, From experience you would want no more than 6 of your prems with this bye - and with Collingwood, Geelong, Melbourne, Sydney, West Coast and Brisbane having the bye bulk of players are coming from those sides.  One of the reasons Kelly is an upgrade target for me as I have 6 out already. Most sides will have Grundy, Danger, Gawn/Stef Martin, Heeney as locks leaving only 2 spots and that is not considering Neale, Lloyd, Oliver and Pies mids,

Too much emphasis gets put on the byes. They're Round 12 onward. We'll be fully upgraded by then.

Just trade through them like every other year.

If anything, load up on RD13 and RD14 bye players, and trade them to RD12 ones across the two weeks.

I don't let the byes stop me from picking someone I really want to start - they just help for all the guys I'm 50/50 on

You can always move Danger/Heeney/Kelly to your mids that week too if need be, and go lighter with R13 mids

There's many options, and as Rico says don't let it worry you too much, but for me they do help with my 50/50 calls. Eg I like Kelly as a forward, but don't love the pick right now, so it's an easy pass for me, but for other's it's different and vice versa

Agree 100%. There are 12 games for points earned before the so-called dreaded Rd 13 bye. Then, everybody's usual target is to have as near as 22 prems on the park after the byes as possible. It doesn't matter what position, or team balance one has during the byes, just what they score during and probably more importantly how they set themselves up to score afterwards. A bad bye is merely 1 game, and what you lose on 1 you can make up on another. Never considered Kelly because of his wish to leave the Cats but by the way he is reportedly training he's in, and bring on the JLT.

Gray will move around between the two as they need him to, and he expect Hoff won't be rucking much at all now with Lycett in the side - something we all expected, and in turn probably drops him back to his normal high 80 low 90 average history

Do you think the Hoff scored better when he was chopping out in the ruck though? I thought he was more prolific when he was swinging forward to jag a few goals to swinging back for intercept marks, and then getting a few possies on the wing, I had him in my team last year and I thought he scored better when he didn't get stuck in the ruck. His DPP makes him more appealing this year if he doesn't need to ruck at all, he just seems to get free rein when he's not stuck in the ruck.

Yes I agree, partly. Hoffs extra points weren't from hit outs, more from when he's free to roam wherever he can jag those intercepts, be a link player etc.
Where his ruck time could have possibly increased his scores is from tackles. Up from 3 in previous seasons to 5. So an extra 8 points a game.
He had one of his best if not best seasons last year, so it wasn't just cos he had more ruck time.
 Not confident he can back up his scoring this year though.

Think we're deviating away from the point a bit but go cut an Aero in half & then place it room temperature, I'd be pretty certain it would melt faster than a block of dark chocolate. Flake chocolate another susceptible concoction.

I am trying to find the article but I can't spot it. It was from the Port intra-club when I was looking at Rocky. They had Boak, Rocky, SPP running mainly through the guts with Ebert up forward. They went with that exact lineup in JLT 1 and they don't expect it to really hurt the rotation once Wines is back.

I read something somewhere a while ago he would have to get used to playing less mid time.

Where did you get your information ?

They had an article as mentioned below by coglan13

There's this article from that mentions Ebert's new role forward, but also mentions Boak up forward.

Been having a lot of trouble settling on anyone to fill in F2-3, there's a number of options I like but nobody is screaming pick me. It appears to be down to one of Heeney, Dev or Mundy (having all but officially settled on Billings as either F2 or F3), but as mentioned in the POD thread, I've been giving some serious consideration to one of Papley, Higgins or Fisher. Bit of bias is making me lean towards Higgins, but that's also because I'm most certain of his role and therefore the likelihood of the consistent scores that will justify picking him.

I think Heeney is almost a must have, but I agree with the others.  What will Mundy's role be this year?  What will losing Neale do to their mids and what affect will that have on Mundy?  I'm not a fan of Devon so he's not on my watch list, but I can understand why he would be on others.

I'm finding myself feeling that outside of danger and Heeney it is all speculation.  Then I feel that if it is speculation, why speculate on the top pricers when there seems to be so many promising mids and rookies this year?

Take a price increase from the cheaper players while we wok out the new roles of some of the Prems.  I think the FWD line this year is the hardest for a number of years.

I've been against starting him, just because of the interrupted preseason, but that article suggests he has been training since the operation (might not be with the main group but still training hard none the less) and it says he will play in JLT 2, so if he lines up this week and gets through unscathed then I think he comes back into my side

Trav Boak is intriguing me. Looked the fittest he has been in a lonnngggg time. Will play mostly midfield and has gone low 90's to low 100's most of his career. If he can average in that 95 range it will see him be a top 10 forward.

Yep I see him going back to those midfield numbers. Draft slider

Owned Walters last year which was a bit of a rollercoaster. Although to be fair, he showed some great signs, it was just his body that let him down (think he had a suspension also).

There's midfield minutes up for grabs with Neale gone, just a matter of whether Ross uses Walters in that spot, or gives Brayshaw/Cerra/etc a chance instead.

Considered him, but don't trust him to play every game, so it's a no from me. Maybe after he gets injured 5 mins into the 1st quarter of a game and I can get him for 350k again.

If he can get up to 500k and keep it together for a couple of months before getting injured or belting Caleb Daniel I can live with that. Gives you a chance to assess who the genuine 500k premos are too. We all remember the Billings debacle right?

Well they don't play the dogs till the 2nd last round so you could be safe from him belting someone lol. He does an early injury though and things could be awkward with no one to trade to. He's tempting but he's got burn man written all over him

100%. The circumstances last year are similar to this year. He had an iffy pre-season, came out and killed it round 1, missed the next two rounds, was decent round 4 and then missed a chunk of games after injuring himself again round 5. This year he has had an interrupted pre-season and he is more than likely going to burn the majority of people that pick him.

Last year I thought the value was there with him expected to go up in price and knowing his scoring potential but it backfired hard and fast. He is the epitome of a trap player. You know the risks, you don't listen to your head and pick them anyway and when it backfires you think to yourself 'why the F did I do that?'

You Picking him on not picking him last year has zero effect on how good a pick he is this year.

You pick him, burn a trade within the first two weeks and then regret it. If you want a mid price option there are plenty in the back half, or if you're itching to live and die by the sword grab Rocky/Brad Crouch who have at least looked like playing this year with better ceilings for an extra 50k

The reason he's a popular choice is because of the state of the FWD premos this year (no reliable picks other than Danger, Heeney, Kelly & Menegola, and they all have the same bye) and the lack of promising FWD rookies.. When all the other choices don't look very safe themselves, going for Greene, who if fit (which seems to be the case according to the Giants camp) should have no problem banging out a 95+ average, looks like a fairly safe option at his price.

If he gets injured early, it's just a trade gone and he becomes a rookie, you pocket 200k. If he gets injured about 8 or so weeks in, you do the same and pocket 350k, or you sideways trade him to a performing FWD premo (basically treating him as  a cash cow). Both aren't ideal, but are worth the risk for such a massive reward.

And BTW I'd grab Brad Crouch in a second if he was a fwd, he's nowhere near my mids line though.

I looked at him briefly, but he'll need to be #1 ruck for a significant period of time to justify the risk, and at 410k or whatever he is, the reward isn't enough imo

People are starting Greene at F3. That is not a smart move. Forward rookies don't seem to be very deep and you are going to struggle to find 3, let alone 4, to start on field. There is no chance in hell I am going anywhere near Toby Greene as my forward 3. It has to be 3 of those 4 you mentioned to start the year. Personally I have Danger, Heeney and Menegola. I am also locking one of Boak or Acres at F4 (most likely Boak at this stage).

Devon Smith??

But agree, if he's fit, he's a premo priced at 350k. If he gets injured, then it's not like he'll lose cash and you'd only be burning 1 correction trade and hes definitely the type of player you'd allow one for.

Post by: Mat0369 on March 06, 2019, 11:42:12 PM
What worries me with Dev Smith is he had to record the highest tackle total for an AFL season to average what he did. It is the exact same thing that worried a lot of people when Lachie Neale had his first big season and had to break the possession record to do it. Neale dipped by about 3 points the next season.

Dev is also now losing minutes in the guts with the acquisition of Shiel. So I think a 3-5 point drop is pretty likely. It will still probably put him in the top 8, but he may be had at a discount later in the year

I feel the same way. And he's electric in the forward line so expect him to roll through there a lot also. Should still score well but 530 is a tough price.

If you swing Burgess forward then there's very little difference with the personnel, I'd back Setterfield/Balta/Drew to outscore Hore/Quaynor/Logue/Duursma. Collins probably a 70 average but he's also pricey & many people are running with Roberton at D5.

Petrucelle, Balta, Drew, Miers, Burgess, Parker, Cavvara

Danger, Heeney, Greene, Setterfield are all locked all you need is 4 of them to play which I think is more likely than unlikely.

Lock it in Eddie.
Problem is, half those guys would be lucky to avg 50 from what we've seen so far. Hopefully someone shows some decent scoring potential this weekend (excluding Balta and Drew)

Setterfield & Balta 70+, Drew probably 65. Who in the backline will score better?

I'm not saying they'll outscore those 3, i thought it was pretty clear i was referring to fettucine, miers, parker, and cavarra

The other guys are bench options so not really critical what they score, as long as they make money in the long run. People also have Burgess as a swingman so it's really a moot point that the forward rookies are lacking. Most will only have 1 or 2 from the above group. I'd be more concerned about the backs to be honest, Clark & Collins very popular but also more expensive. That's why there is some sense in grabbing an extra mid pricer in defence.

The cash making ability is the issue. I don't see any of those guys (thus far) being able to generate much cash at this stage. Collins shouldn't be any higher than D5, and imo should be a safe bet for a 65-75avg. Personally i think it'll be better to pay a bit more for these back rookies (even if D6/7) than to have 2+ of those fwd rookies mentioned before.

But we'll see how they go this weekend along with who lines up rd1. There's always a couple of surprises.

If you swing Burgess forward then there's very little difference with the personnel, I'd back Setterfield/Balta/Drew to outscore Hore/Quaynor/Logue/Duursma. Collins probably a 70 average but he's also pricey & many people are running with Roberton at D5.

Burgess is going to be on my bench. You could also start two of Clark/Collins and even Ridley on field. Of the three guys you mentioned you have Setters who is a lock, Balta with questionable JS and who knows how he scores come the real thing and Drew who has looked ok during pre-season but you would probably only feel comfortable rotating him and Balta at F6.

Problem is, half those guys would be lucky to avg 50 from what we've seen so far. Hopefully someone shows some decent scoring potential this weekend (excluding Balta and Drew)

This

No way you want to start any of those players on the field. They all have slow burn F8 feel about them. Maybe 1, no way I'd go near 2 or 3.

I'm using all the inside knowledge I'm privy to when it comes to Balta, Richmond don't want to play Grigg as second ruck anymore, that basically leaves Balta in the role. The fact he can play defence & forward means he'll be that plug & play type character, poor form won't save him but he's physically ready as far as I can see. Drew is another speculative type but given he's a mid who has DPP I'm bullish, I like my selections to be strong contested players & he fits the bill. The advantage with going light in the forward line is all the likely players are cheap as chips so you can afford to splurge on other lines.

Leppitsch today made it sound unlikely they'd use Lynch in the ruck due to injury risk too. Balta getting more and more likely. Hopefully has a good game this wekend to seal his spot

Really don't like the forward line this year past Danger, Heeney and Smith.  Currently rolling Danger, Heeney and Greene, but starting to look at other options.

Fisher - 3rd year breakout chance? 2nd year was a massive improvement from his 1st year, Cripps raves about him, more mid time, and looks full of confidence this year.
Dahlhaus - has proven to be a premium mid in the past, Cats midfield runs deep and it would depend if he can get more minutes than at the Dogs.
Darling - showerty bye and prob not worth the risk.
Kenedy/Riewoldt/Cameron - wait on these guys to see how the rule changes effect them.

I don't know if Kelly is an option sharing the bye with Danger and Heeney. Forward rookies look poor this year and you're going to have to field them all for that bye.

Or you could just upgrade your forward line in time and have 6 prem forwards by the byes. Pretty easy, especially if you start with 4

I just think there are too many option for top 6-10 forwards.  I feel like I can only guarantee that Danger and Heeney will be top 6 then the rest could be ranked as high as 12-15th forwards.  Just don't want to pick that 10-15th guy and be stuck with them all year.

Hence I'm going Danger, Heeney, sneaky POD (which I'll change a million times), Greene. If I get the sneaky POD wrong, oh well. I was probably going to get a non-POD wrong anyway but at least I have a small chance of getting ahead. And it's fun having a POD to cheer on!

If there's one player that was always going to go backwards this year, it's Devon Smith. Had a honeymoon year in the midfield last year, but now Shiel has come to the club and old mate will go back to battling at half forward.

He's was locked as soon as it was mentioned he was gunna play in a JLT match (provided he gets through it and gets named round 1). Doesn't matter if he kicks 10 tonight, we know what he's capable of if he's fit.

Needs to back it up, and considering his entire career has been much lower last year looks like a one off.

Just can't see the benefit in starting him - bring him in later if he's looking good enough

no but u dont need every line to be bye friendly like u can just have o rnd 14 fwd premos but have 2 or 3 in defense/mids

Odds are they peak a while before then. Very risky holding onto them for longer. Plus, kinda need to cash in your rookies to upgrade :p

I just can't do it, he killed me last year. Also some key indicators that are troubling, 53% DE, only 3 contested possessions, 1 tackle. Think he's a wait & see, better to jump on when he strings some games together.

His DE is concerning but the 3 contested isnt, he is playing outside mid so thats expected. Outside mid is better than half forward like last year ;)

Outside mid with a crappy DE is going to mean crappy scores due to the lack of contested possessions.

What are people’s thoughts on Greene leading into round 1? Anyone out there starting him?
 Played the 1 JLT game and was clearly managed only playing 36min but still managed 12 disposals and 1 goal. There were reports of him having a very disoriented preseason then contradictory reports that he had been training the entire time on the Alt G machine and only actually missed a couple of weeks.
His upside is obviously huge, especially at his price. Personally I don’t think you could pick him any higher than F4 unless you’ve absolutely stacked your other lines.

The problem with the premium forwards this year is besides from Danger and Heeney they all have red flags for varying reasons. It’s just a matter of which ones you feel the most comfortable with, or if you want to risk midpricers such as Worpel or Greene.

Couple of names that people seem to have jumped off or ignored.  All have their own issues, but could be options.

Gray - JLT 1 55 off 65% TOG JLT 2 92 off 89% TOG - consistent mid?
Walters - JLT 1 86 off 55% JLT 2 92 off 68% - injury prone, consistent mid?
Westhoff - JLT 1 54 off 55% JLT 2 98 off 83% - less ruck duties
Cameron - JLT 1 94 off 73% JLT 2 89 off 83% - KPP
Darling - JLT 1 101 off 77% JLT 2 96 off 84% - same bye as Danger and Heeney
Elliott - JLT 1 76 off 64% JLT 2 63 off 55% - is he 100%, injury prone

I'm sick of doing my head in trying to find a F3 I like, so for the first time I just put Hoff there and I don't hate it

I know I am paying overs, and I know he will probably drop to around 90ish, so he will be 50k+ cheaper later, but on the flip side I have zero ruck worries now, so that, coupled with the fact I don't love any option for F3 has made me think this might be the way to go. Has a good bye too
Title: Re: 2019 Forwards
Post by: enzedder on March 12, 2019, 03:12:41 PM
Yeah, F3 is probably the hardest position to fill.
I've just put Kelly in there. So I have Danger, Heeney and Kelly as F1-3 with the same bye. Hardly ideal but it's one week and with some careful planning en route to the byes it may be okay.
Presently my premo status is 1-9-5 through the byes. Will take a hit that round for sure.

I have had Dunkley there but his role is dubious. If he was a pure mid, he'd be locked.
I had Smith there but with Shiel arriving and articles pointing to more forward time he's bound to have a fall on 2018.
I thought about Westhoff heavily in the early pre season when it became known he would be given DPP status but the masses persuaded me against that.
Wingard seemed to be an option a while back.
Daniel was briefly in as my F3 too recently but felt that was too risky.

Still weighing things up. Don't want Billings. Haven't given much thought to Mundy or Gray.
There's simply no real quality bye friendly options that scream out to pick them.

Good numbers. Haven't seen the JLT games but assume he was playing in the guts and his role is assured. Ebert is playing forward according to Hinkley's press interview and with with Wines out as well early Boak at 478k is worthy of thought. I'll think about it.

Can’t see Boak’s output changing much. Good for a 85-90 avg but won’t go more.

Heeney, Danger and Greene(if he remains fit and not suspended) are the only players I consider a sure thing. (Premo wise)

If only Port and Gray’s body allowed him to be 100% midfield. :/

Boak is the guy who has excellent durability, a decent floor & has shown he can go high 90's if playing midfield. Such a low risk selection, maybe not a glamour selection who will smash out 105 but will be a solid F6 at worst. I can certainly understand selecting him & would consider him if I was paying up in the forward line.

Thats the key point here imo. He's not as exciting as some options around his price, but I can see him return to his career best years of 100-105. Looks in great shape and without the captaincy burden and back in the guts.

I've got him in the 95-100 range, only knock is he's 31 in August

Thing is you need those meat and potatoes type of guys. The Menegola/Boak selections that you know you're going to get that high 90 to low 100's averages. The risk/reward guys are all well and good, but you're better off waiting for them to have their inevitable dip before jumping on board.

It feels like Port have been running a 5 man rotation in the square through JLT. Boak, SPP, Rocky were the main three with Gray and Drew rotating. Swap out Drew with Wines and there is your 4 man rotation. They all played forward in small stints, but they all spent most of their time through the guts. Can't see it changing that much once Wines is back. If anything one of them will come from the wing/HFF and play as the extra on baller.

He's probably been spoken about , but how about Jack Gunston? Doesn't have the same bye as Heeney and Dangerfield. Last year, excluding one score of 47, his lowest score was 74 and he averaged 98.5 without that low score. Only issue is he's missed both JLT games and apparently he has an injury according to SuperCoach.

Has come back in good nick and has expressed interest in moving back there to regain his form from Geelong days.

Kid has all the ability and attributes in the world. Has just had absolutely rotten luck with injuries. I hope he gets a solid run at it. SC wise if it wasn’t for his injury history I might consider having a punt but many ahead of him at this stage, at least on my watch list.

He could score but it's so hard to pick the Bulldpgs mids/fwds with any confidence where they will play. Bont, Macrae, Wallis, Hunter, Libba, Dunkley, McLean will all rotate through the mids. Im stearing clear and looking at them as upgrade targets once I see how they are going.

Just looking at ownership percentages for some of the talked about guys

Danger - 67% (how this isn't 100% I'll never know)
Heeney - 45%
Dev Smith - 21%
Kelly - 14%
Hoff - 13%
Dunkely - 9%
Robbie Gray - 8%
De Goey - 7%
Petracca - 7%
McLean - 5%

Mid price options

Moore - 19%
Greene - 16%
Worpel - 11%
Elliott - 10%
Daniher - 7%
Dahl - 6%
Billings - 5%
Lycett - 5%
Lobb - 4%
Vardy - 4%

Some of the rookies

Setters - 62%
Parker - 34%
Burgess - 32%
Cavarra - 27%
Drew - 23%
Rozee - 22%
Balta - 19%
Rankine - 17%
Petruccelle - 16%
Blakey - 13%
Mosquito - 12%
Schlensog - 9%
Bines - 9%
Luko - 8%
Wilkinson - 7%

So guys like Menegola (3%), Walters (3%), Darling (3%), Buddy (3%), Boak (2%) McDonald (2%) and Mundy (2%) are in less teams than Jaidyn Stephenson (3%)

Also going completely cookie cutter in the forward line it would be either one of two lines

Danger, Heeney, Dev, Setters, Rozee, Drew, Parker, Burgess

or

Danger, Heeney, Greene, Moore, Setters, Drew, Parker, Balta with Burgess down back

Moore and Burgess probably have inflated numbers in the forward line due to the DPP. I expect most would be splitting them if they have them.

Agree with this. Boak is in my side because I had money to upgrade Moore so thought I may as well but I am not confident. If Roberton doesn’t get up Moore will be in and Roberton will be upgraded.

Injury issues and has an IQ of about 12 which leads to him missing games from suspension... :p

you dont need to start him just pick him up in the bye rounds for 550k.

will be rapt if he plays to the bye rounds, would consider that a win. Half expecting failure thou

If I stick to just Danger, Heeney, Greene and rookies (incl. Moore), I can afford to go Collins to Hurn down back (sacrificing Butters as a mid rookie in the process...). That's very very tempting.

In the same boat, I feel like I'm screwed either way.

Don't start him, he averages 105 over the first 10 rounds.
Start him, a suspension, an injury, plays 6 of the first 10 rounds at am average of 75.

Both seem equal chances of happening.

As of last week Naughton was going be play full back, this week he's the Coleman medalist. The dogs will change their team every week, no point risking picking one of the forwards expecting them to play midfield. BUT if you were going to, then Wallis looks the most likely to be the one who spends the most time in there.

The Bevo effect. Come round 3 McLean will be the full time midfielder because he has the most flair, Dunkley will be playing out of the goal-square due to his good contested marking and Libba will be in the VFL/ACL'd

Just because of his role being unknown. Will typically have a few bad games, meaning you can pick him up cheaper at some time of the season as well.

Overall there are too many question marks on the forward prems except for Danger and Heeney, so best to see how it pans out before upgrading that line.

Reckon a 95 season ave is floor for gray and ceiling for Boak. Just a question if you want to spend the extra cash on the chance of a 105 ave from Gray.

Just looking at it a port midfield of SPP, rocky, wines, Boak seems very 1 paced. Would be foolish of Hinkley not to have Gray a big part of that midfield rotation despite the fact he is also their best fwd. especially since wingard and pokes departure.

Dunkley will be an upgrade target. It's not like he is going to skyrocket in price. Not worth the risk to start him IMO.

With McLean stating he will be spending a majority of his time forward for the first half of the season, I think we can safely lock and load Dunkley. The only forward that will get near Danger imo

Anyone looking at Jack Higgins? Everything I'm hearing from Richmond circles is that he's going to play majority mid. In that case, I can see him averaging 85ish but that's probably too low for a keeper and maybe not high enough to make enough money? In that awkward spot but I'm a little tempted. I might go him if Greene's out so I don't have to change my structure.

I feel like Higgo is the 2019 version of Jack Graham, so I'd be very wary starting him.

I'd definitely start Greene, wait and see on Jack and if things play out the wrong way, save 50k in the kitty and make the swap after round 2.

It's more about if Greene doesn't play and I don't want to destroy my structure. I don't think we'll even get the opportunity to do that though because Greene will be extended bench at least and they're a Sunday game - so I think that all but counts Higgins out.

They are both very injury prone, and Greene is a suspension risk. Add to that the slim rookie pickings and poor scoring of fwd rookies, if one or both break down we'd be fielding rookies at F3/F4 or trading out premos elsewhere to upgrade them.
Can someone convince me otherwise?

The reason I'm rolling with Greene and Moore at F3 and F4 is that I don't trust the forwards at their prices past Danger and Heeney, that simple for me.  So that extra cash is being used to strengthen every other line.  If say I left out Moore, moved Greene to F4 and added someone like Mundy, then I might not be able to afford Laird as my D2 or Gawn as my R2.

They are both very injury prone, and Greene is a suspension risk. Add to that the slim rookie pickings and poor scoring of fwd rookies, if one or both break down we'd be fielding rookies at F3/F4 or trading out premos elsewhere to upgrade them.
Can someone convince me otherwise?

You've gotta risk it to get the biscuit
Yes you have to take some risks. But I feel both those players at F3/F4 is a step too far. Picking Moore also means you kinda have to pick Burgess, whose scoring and JS are iffy
If say you went a premo and rookie then it'd mean fielding an extra rookie, which you said yourself there are slim pickings there.

That's why I'm going Premo and Greene at F3/4. I just think the scenario where Greene and Moore go down is quite possible and would be very messy in terms of fielding fwd rookies.
I'm starting Setterfield, Drew, Parker and Balta. That leaves Petrucelle as the only other rookie, (presuming Burgess is already in defence) and his JS isn't great with Jamie Cripps looming. So if both go down you're stuck for downgrade options and fielding Parker and Petrucelle.

Nah i really like him. Its either Crisp/Rookie or Billings/Ridley for me... What do you think as a fellow Billings enthusiast?

Just get him in so I know someone else is suffering the anxiety too haha

Personally for me, this was the only way I could squeeze Gawn and Grundy in, without sacrificing too much.

I feel this year is different. We have a legit reason to spend a ton on 2 rucks, but means we need to rethink a traditional structure.

Yeah I get that. It's not so much the structure (Having a 350k+250k at F3/4)that worries me it's that those two players are extremely injury prone. If say Boak was 350k and Doedee was 250k that would be the same structure but with significantly less risk.

No upside to picking him to start.

He’s priced awkwardly.

That said he could easily average around the 100 mark. Great athlete and proven record at a lesser club

Assuming Mills is my only other issue this week I will be culling Heeney. Same as Hibberd, his role isn’t being what it was advertised to be and there doesn’t seem to be much to suggest he’s going to turn it around.

I’ll be moving him to Wallis/Kelly if I can as ASAP.

I had a bad feeling about Heeney in the preseason, but no evidence to back it up. In fact the opposite, he seemed to be the best pick after Danger.
Sometimes u gotta go with the gut even though it goes against all reason.

He is being played out of position, instead of more midfield time that was touted he's getting less, even worse he's playing fwd pocket instead of usual high half fwd pushing into mids.

I'm giving him a week against Carlton to prove me wrong, after that I won't hesitate to trade him to Kelly, who I would have picked anyway if I'd followed my instinct. Not getting stuck with another Hibberd/Billings.

Word is he played sore, so we'll see what happens next round.

Horse is a stubborn Mofo. He obviously prefers pap smear over Heeney in the mids. Yeah he might see reason, but when? After round 7 when 1/3 the season is over, Heeney is averaging sub 80,dropping below 400k, and T.Kelly averaging 100 at 550k?

I reckon Heeney stays. A player of his skill will, IMO, come good. No more double trade players for the Sabres. But Mundy has me stuffed. He goes, but does he become a prem other than Danger, Kelly or Heeney or do I grab Parker. Also have Dusty in the mids. Other than that happy with my team. Not sure yet what I'm doing but think that Mundy as a POD turned out to be a SPUD>

I’m hoping for one more absolute stinker to get him down to low 400s, and many more jumping off. I think he’ll come good, but it’s hard to watch when you’ve got him.

I had Billing’s last year, and jumped ship when he was under 400k, but from there in his numbers improved and warranted a spot in my side, so a wasted trade still...

Once he gets over the ankle issue, he'll come good for sure

Gun midfielder Isaac Heeney isn't expected to do too much work ahead of the Carlton game as he continues to battle the ankle injury he picked up in the Swans' second JLT Community Series win over Gold Coast, but he still should take his place in the side.

Did we all know about his ankle injury from the JLT? I feel like I missed that news. Would've happily made him one of the other forwards I had in my side throughout the preseason (Boak... Daniel... :( ) had I known it was a problem.

17 CBAs against the Hawks, 2nd most for the Dogs. Read into that what you will. Makes it harder for me to trade him though...

Similar to his scoring last year, lots of 70s and 80s with the odd 120. Plenty of tackles so doesn't have really bad games

I'm inclined to hold, Heeney is a good example of how quickly things can change. Three games is a small sample size and I'd rather work on getting the two rookie liabilities remedied first. Setterfield and Drew to who?!

Guys like JJK, Darling, Buddy etc will tempt people as they bottom out, but I would only consider 1 of them if it was my F7 and I could loop them each week, but F7 cover is much later in the year, so I won't be touching any of them for now

I think I'd rather keep ROB at R3 until/if he gets dropped, then reassess if/when that happens

I can't see the appeal in using up a trade on Hoff/Lobb/Lycett etc at this stage - they're just not good enough for one of my 6 forward slots at the moment, and whilst I have a playing R3 I'm honestly not even going to entertain bringing one of them based on their current output

It's a saved trade, that's my primary motivation. The moment you trade out Bines means 2 trades to cash in on his earnings. My philosophy is 1 trade to Lycett/Hoff & then get Bines back to R3. Ruck cover still intact & you have a great option for F6/F7. Lycett averaging 88 which is solid, Hoff has never averaged under 80 for the past 8 seasons. I get the fact he's lost his ruck licence & that may tip the scales in favour of Lycett but he's still value at 350k.

Forward line solid now with Drew at F6, did my upgrade to Kelly this week. My big issue is Balta, don't really want to trade him until he makes at least 100k, so that effectively means I need a guy like Lycett/Hoff to cover for any outs. If I can get away with not having to field Balta (probably 3 weeks tops) then this trade makes plenty of sense.

What scalps has Hutchings had this year?
He ran with Boak last week and although Boak destroyed him in the 1st QTR (scored about 45), he only scored 50 for the following 3 quarters.
So he's not having the effect De Boer has had, but it's still present.

He stopped Coniglio and Pendlebury, but did not stop Zorko or Walters. And half stopped Boak. So running at 50/50.

Note: these are purely taking the FF notes on who Hutchings was tagging and seeing how said player scored. Said tag may not have applied for the entirety of a match

I think I'll get him now instead of looping Parker/Balta again, not a good feeling having one of those on the field (Setterfield on the bench too nit much better).

I am going to trade Duursma\Moore to Kelly next week.

Most likely Duursma as I have Duursma up back and Moore forward so I will just send Moore back and trade Duursma to Kelly.  8)

im looking to trade him in possibly in a few weeks. looks like he might not be a 100 player but thinking he is good enough for a F6 spot so wouldnt rush to move him out. Dont think there are 6 fwds considerably better then him.

Same here. Picked him because he has consistently averaged the ton, didn't think his scores would take this big of a hit this early. Probably just have to hang on

What do people think of Worpel's ability to become a keeper currently priced at $439k? If I do an upgrade this week he is the best I can afford. 95avg, and given we are discussing Billings/Daniel types I don't think I have any less trust in Worpel? Do those who started with him and watched him closer than me have any opinions?

I wasn't convinced he'd be good enough and would land in the 88-90ish range, but it's not actually looking like there is going to be a heap of forwards going much better, so I think he now looks like a fine type for F6

Danger, Heeney, Boak, Walters, Billings, Kelly, Daniel, Worpel seem to be the pick of the bunch so far

Only 5 weeks in of course so a lot can change, but based on the current fwd scoring he does appear to be good enough, and 439k is value

I'm still not grabbing him personally, because I'd rather spend the extra 50k on the like of TK, Billings etc but and Worpel shouldn't go up a heap so if he's still doing well in 3-4 weeks time he will likely still be affordable

Have been discussing Hoff a bit lately, due to hit 370k after this week, has missed 1 game in 7 seasons & has never dipped below 80 over that period. So tempting to bring him in when O'Brien fattens.

The other guy slipping under the radar is Lobb, currently averaging 84 but seems to be getting plenty of ruck time.

For hoff to start scoring there needs to be a change in how he is being used.   Unless that occurs I do not see him getting back to his long term average.   if it does change he will be an absolute steal

I’m really torn this week, it’s Walters, Billings or Daniel. 
I can’t decide.
Will Daniel keep his kick out role? If not he’s useless. 
Can Billings keep producing and will he stink when saints drop off?
Walters the yearly enigma, is this year he turns it on?
So bloody help would be great here, I’ve got no idea... sos fanfooty!

Walters will be unique but question is can he stay on the field.
Billings seems to be playing a lot more mid this year and will this continue even if Saints decline is the big question.
Daniel has looked good with his kick in etc but noticed in the last couple of games and maybe because of his size that teams seem to be playing through him. Will this continue?
If you have a trade up your sleeve would go Walters if not risk Billings.

For what its worth, I'd choose Billings of those three. Daniel is looking great off that half back role and being utilised for the kick ins, however I'm concerned his role might change somewhat, if only slightly with teams exposing him on the turnover (last man in defence) with his vulnerability being his lack of height. I think Daniel is still a good pick, but Billings is getting plenty of the footy, just his disposal letting him down at this stage. If, and that's a big if, he can clean this up somewhat, expect those scores to really pump up. Walters has burnt me in the past. If you take the risk with him, be prepared for a roller coaster ride as he can throw in the odd stinker! That's provided he can stay on the park.

Going Tomhawk over TKelly, need a good POD. Interesting stat, averaged 114 last year away from the G and only has 3 games there left for this year.

Averaged 115.6 at Kardinia Park last year, and this year has a 112, 111, 119 down there this year. Also has 6 games left there to finish this season.

Not to mention finished last year as the #1 forward IIRC bar Danger becoming one this year.

Daniel looks pretty safe - not exactly a bunch of standouts besides the guys you already have

That'd be a stacked forward line - don't need a def or mid instead of a fwd this week?

I very much regret going Walters over Daniel last week because I was worried about a role change after the Carlton flogging. He'll find it easier against the Tigers because we have a small forward line again with Jack out. Should be a great pick at least for the short term.

I could definately do with a defender instead of playing Scrim. That would mean Constable to Hayes on field, instead of Atkins to Hayes on the bnech for the extra cash, so not sure. Def is Whitfield, Hurn, Williams, Duursma, Hore, Scrim (Clark, Burgess). If Whitfield is out I might bench him and do get Laird anyway.

Fair call. I'd want him before (if) he goes above $450k again though... Might only give me one more week. Should be around $402 after this week, but BE in the 20s/low 30s

Westoff hitting some form with Dixon due back soon. Could be a good swap for ROB for those of us with Bines

He's looking good. Dixon has had setbacks though. Not expected back anytime soon. Could even miss the season

Really? Was going off Bruce tonight saying he was back running

I missed that comment. That's good news if so!

Was only going off the last update re his setback, and he's listed as indefinite still on the official injury list, which is usually a concern.

My thoughts after 6 (nearly 7) rounds:

Must haves (basically guaranteed top 6 barring injury):
Dangerfield, Boak

In the mix for Top 6 (Want some combination of these guys for F3-6):
TKelly, Heeney, Mundy, Daniel, Billings, Walters, Cameron, Marshall, Dunkley

Guys probably good enough for F6 but also probably won't be Top 6:
Worpel, Newnes, Hawkins, Robinson, Dahlhaus, Westhoff, Menegola, maybe Darling
Title: Re: 2019 Forwards

I agree with your thoughts SL.
I have: Danger, TKelly, Daniel and Marshall at present.
Boak will definitely come in. Heeney is likely to be my other but if he isn't then one of those others you mentioned will do.
ROB will become Westhoff real soon too with Bines DPP link.

T.Kelly will come in after his bye to finish off the forwards, but really like the look of Marshall.

bought him in as a keeper week he was a late out.  Good start, only pity not F/R dpp.   heeney may drop some cash now and be gettable in two weeks.   kelly, heeney needed to finish fwds,  sicily, ryan, laird options for last 2 def.  not sure what to do in mids?

Available options are Parfitt, Darling, BBrown, Parish, Stephenson, Baker, De Boer

Any decent options?

I did the same. Dunkley to Boak after round 2. Going to have to swallow my pride and bring him back in. Hopefully Bevo sees the benefit of leaving him in that midfield role for the rest of the season.  :-\

From what I saw of the game today, Worpel was going well when the game was tight and contested but when the Hawks chipped it around and wound the clock down they didn't kick it to him at all. May be because he didn't run hard enough to create space. Sometimes he is caught in that space that's either not close enough or not far enough away to be a longer target. Very frustrated that he didn't ton up after the first three quarters were looking good.

Actually tried to get him in this week for Baker and a downgrade of Duursma and I'm short. He priced himself out of shot with his last fortnight. I'm spewing because he is one I wanted. He has a low ownership percentage and is still going nuts even with Blakely back. I did manage to grab him in AF for a straight swap of Danger after the showerhouse 27.

Does anyone think Ziebell is a decent option? Dont have much cash and im sick of fielding horrible rookies

Bit of a Josh Dunkley situation going on. When playing in the guts, he's comfortably looking like a top forward. I suppose it's a question of whether or not you trust the coach to keep playing him there rather than up forward

Most people have Danger, Heeney, and Kelly so can't cop his bye. If you don't though (or are playing league and don't care about byes), he's one of the better KPPs you can get. Just be wary that all key forwards sometimes score like crap. Four scores under 90 for Hawkins so far...

Ceglar at 380k is interesting given Mcevoy will be out for 6 weeks. If Hawks choose to go solo rucks he could be a great guy to have over the byes and then long term sit him at f7 and he can cover all the lines.

I like it and I hate it. I still remember starting Renouf in DT way back when because he was the sole Hawthorn ruck all of a sudden but I had forgotten he was also a spud.

No guarantee to score more - could go 80ish and then it's a horrible waste of a trade and all that $$

I got Cameron last week, didn't care that he would lose money because my only other option was to get and field Young (who turned out to be terrible), but GWS look formidable and he has a very solid floor. His 29 was injury affected.

With the byes coming up the forwards are a great place to cover any shortfalls, particularly with those holding the Richmond boys (Baker, Balta, Bolton).

Some trades I'll be considering myself will be one of these three to Boak (should be under 500k next week), Mundy who just registered a sub 100 score & Dunkley who has blitzed over the past month but still remains reasonably priced. Given these players play round 13 & 14 they will effectively give you cover for the entire 3 rounds (presuming you play the 3B's in round 12).

Cameron looks a great cheap option if you want the KP rollercoaster.

Been saying this for a while now too

He is consistent, has a good floor, but too many 80-90 scores won't cut it

Yep not the ideal pickup, but hoping on getting Dunkley & Mundy and keep him at F7/M9 (once team is complete).

Thing is, some players just can’t get rid of the clangers from their game. Brad Crouch should be averaging 115+, but never will...

For sure, but Worpel has a lot less experience than some of the other clanger kings. Only played 21 games which I think gives him scope for improvement on the clanger front.

Kind of irrelevant when he's 31 and only averaging 78 though don't you think? I was his biggest supporter all pre season and only didn't start him due to being tight on money but I'm glad now because he's shown nothing to suggest that he's going to put up premium numbers this year. I'd understand if his average was only down due to a first quarter injury affected game but in reality he's just been churning out sub par numbers all year and I don't see good reason for that to change

I got Dunkley a few weeks ago, and have been lining up Boak to finish my fwds. I must say, I’m a little gun shy now, but can’t afford Mundy, don’t trust Heeney and there’s not many others to choose from.

So far I have Kelly, Dunkley, Danger, Marshall and Worpel. Wouldn’t mind turning Worpel into Lobb later, but can’t see it happening.

He is getting points round the ground too with his marking
Only in 5% of teams and averaging 90.9 for the season and 109.3 for the past 3 games

I started looking at Shane Edwards too as a POD but the more i look the less i am convinced
Good price, low BE, works for my byes but not a keeper so would be wasting a trade

It's a tough one, risky but if you're looking for depth then Gray at 400k is a solid bet. Hasn't gone under 90 for aeons, at worst he can cover two lines on the bench.

$462k for Marshall bye free aint a bad proposition and one I'm heavily considering.

Fantastic pick for those who got him for $310k

I think it was 340k, but yeah, it's been great  :D

Yeah 341k is the cheapest he has been. Got him round 4 just before a price rise. One of my only good pod moves this year..

That may sound good and all but I kept Greene in Round 7 and he's averaged 73.8 in five games since then and also gained a huge $29.6k so we all know who the real winner is here.

Already locked, will be my F7/M9.

Reasoning? Hasn't gone under 90 for 5 years, has only had 1 terrible score this year (excluding injury) & with his high standard deviation can be looped with a spud like Relton Young.

Post by: RaisyDaisy on June 14, 2019, 12:34:17 PM
Still undecided whether to go with Gray covering at F7/M9 or Hoff at F7/R3

Hoff covers M9 too (swing a fwd prem to mids, then field Hoff - need a M11 DPP for this)

For that reason I am grabbing Hoff

My logic is this: This cover option is just for covering 1-2 week outs from a starting 22. For anyone injured 3+ I just sideways trade them to another prem. Gray should score better, but Hoff covers an additional line (ruck) and if someone like Grundy was to miss a week (he's had a few niggles this year) then having Hoff is a huge win. He's also 40k cheaper too which is also very handy at this stage of the year

Crazy as it might sound, it removes the temptation to loop too as opposed to Gray. No way you're looping Gray with any of your prem mids, and if Robbie Young is your F8 there won't be many opportunities to loop some weeks anyway, so having Hoff for just pure bench cover only, just to cover the 1-2 week injury is all I am focusing on

Plenty of opportunities to utilise Relton Young, I'd also plan on bringing Kyron Hayden to open up the midfiled link so more opportunities present themsleves.

As for Hoff, if I need him I'll trade Gray & pocket the proceeds, very confident Gray edges his way to 500k (not as confident with Hoff).

Yeah I did my research earlier in the week on who the best 102k M/F rookie to bring in was and identified Hayden as being the guy so I will be bringing him in next week to open up DPP and have Hoff covering all 3 lines

I'll loop Hoff in the forwards each week where I can so I still get a free hit with him most weeks, but to me that's secondary - I just want someone decent to call upon should one of my starters miss a week or two

Cash generation from Gray means nothing to me. At this stage of the year my last few trades will be for injuries only, and if you need to trade Gray to Hoff to avoid a ruck donut (of course this will likely not be required but it is a possibility) then that's another trade you need to use, so I'm playing it safe and picking the guy who is cheaper and covers an extra line

I'm considering doing this myself next week, although a sub-500k Mundy in two weeks would be mighty tempting.... I take it that's with a complete team now? How many injury trades are you planning to leave as a buffer?

Walsh to Neale/Fyfe next week completes the team +I'll have Hoff as cover (getting him this week) with 4-5 trades left

Hopefully that puts me in a good position to finish the year strong

Fair play. I've got a D6/7 in Hore/Smith, but looking at Naish I think he could hold down a bench cover spot the way he's going, and I've still got a shaky Rocky, Brouch and Conigs in the mids, so cover there and fwd is more important than defense atm...

It's funny, as the team is technically 'complete' but I just want to trade my way to perfection, which never happens... I'll probably only have 3 trades left once Hore hopefully becomes Whitfield when he returns

Will have 4-5 injury trades, currently have 8 trades left but 1 is reserved for Mundy & another reserved for Libba to Bont/Sloane. Then there's 1 for Hayden, so that leaves potentially one more for a downgrade, need to sit down & work out how far my 150k can spread before committing to anything.

Toss a coin. Walters has the highest ceiling, Marshall and Daniel more consistent. Walters more likely to miss at some stage, so would want some cover
Title: Re: 2019 Forwards
Post by: PowerBug on June 17, 2019, 11:08:24 AM
Only thing that's a slight negative against Walters, is that his last 3 weeks have been very clutch. Two match winning scores and a huge goal haul in a close game. When Freo don't play close games he probably isn't in a position where he gets a nice multiplier for being clutch. Still obviously a very good option.

Daniel is a defender, Dunkley and Macrae are mids. Not getting Daniel because he’s listed as a fwd along with another Dogs player who also doesn’t play as a fwd is a terrible terrible reason.

Now in saying that, if you can’t split them, why not get the cheaper one? I did choose Daniel over Marshall myself last week but I would’ve loved that extra 20k right now as it’s hampered my upgrade targets for this week...

It's a toss of the coin, but I see Daniel as the least riskiest move, even though Marshall has been very consistent too. Walters highest upside by far, but also the highest risk.

Time to finish off my forward line who gets the last spot?
Daniel
Walters
Marshall

It's a toss of the coin, but I see Daniel as the least riskiest move, even though Marshall has been very consistent too. Walters highest upside by far, but also the highest risk. If you need to gain on the pack and take a riskier move to do it then go Walters, otherwise toss a coin between Daniel and Marshall

So many better options surely - even considering the price.

Melbourne only won because Freo were down to 2 on the bench. I wouldn’t get excited about their prospects going forward purely based on yesterday.

Lycett anyone?
Ryder2Gray the no.1 ranked player already has him.

Still not sold on lycett. Thats like his 2nd good game all year. But his DP is gold

4 tons in his last 5 games says otherwise, still under 500k too. Very tempted to go YOLO and bring him in at F7.

When Lobb went down, it left me with no choice but to go with Lycett as having the DPP was part of my strategy for the latter part of the season, hope he can keep it going.

Offload J Cameron before he bottoms out? Lycett looking a good option. Cameron has been solid but I'm worried I'll be stuck with him for the rest of the year and he'll score poorly

Crazy that Daniel was considered the safest option of these 3 a few weeks back....

No knock on the post obviously, because it made sense at the time and I agreed with the assessment. It can be a harsh game.

I just read this post, and didn't know of his injury so just visited afl.com.au to see the news.
I can hold him for 3-4 weeks on my bench. Will have to play Cameron and Heeney with no loopholing now.
If Danger is out I can still cover him but through DPP and playing a mid rookie I'd usually bench.
Gawn is the one that will strike fear in me.

Way better cover than most I reckon. I don’t have Caleb, but I do have Bines, Young and Gardner. :-[

I have Bines, Hayden and Gardner but flexibility with Hayden's DPP means I can shuffle my 6 Fwd/Mids (TK, Danger, Dunkley, Heeney and Gray the others- 2 in mids)
Carnage could be only 1 more injury away depending who it is.
Carrying Cripps and Daniel is enough for the time being.

Such a shame about Caleb - he's been so good this year and a rock in my forward line

3-4 weeks at this stage of the season is too much I think

I've got Danger in the mids, so Caleb to Neale seems like a no brainer

Is anyone looking at Hawkins. He was averaging 98 until his last three poor scores. Even though he's a key forward, he's actually very reliable and durable.

Could be worth a look at 380k

Toby Greene is the single biggest piece of shower in fantasy history. I held him through injury and poor form at least 3 times this year. Finally gave up on him after his most recent injury which ended up only being a week, flowered with my trades for the byes, and now he's scoring like this. I hope he never gets a disposal again while giving away 5 frees a game.
