Players & Trades in SC / Re: 2019 Defenders
« Last post by Sonnydark on Today at 11:10:24 PM »
I think everyone's just suffering from this wonderful time of year where there's no games on to judge anything so we over analyse every stat known to man, change our team based on every article that comes out about a training  performance and look for reasons to dump or grab guys to gain an extra .5%

JLT will start soon then we can all get on with dumping premiums because they don't have a day out in a practice game  ;D

I honestly hope that Whitfield/Hurn/Ryan/Witherden/Short have huge JLTs so everyone jumps off the ultra-premiums

Who were the 3, 3 and 4 players who backed it up?

I'm curious as to whether their ability to back it up was obvious, and can be correlated to last years Top 5

Currently put Hurn in my side as a POD instead of Witherdan and liking the look of it!

I like it! Haven't seen him in a single team

When I pick prems to start, I am picking guys who I think will finish the year as the highest on that line - that's the goal for me, and price is secondary

I understand the need for some to jump on high priced defenders (Lloyd/Laird/Sicily) but how many Top 10 defenders from previous seasons actually backed up and went Top 10 again??

2015 > 2016 (3)
2016 > 2017 (3)
2017 > 2018 (4)
2018 > 2019 ??

who says Lloyd/Laird/Sicily will be top 10? especially now with the new kick in rules wouldn't looking at guys like Hurn/Witherden/Ryan/Short be the better option?? save money and possibly close the gap on points?

If Hurn/Witherden/Ryan/Short benefit from the new kick-in rules, it stands to reason that so would Lloyd/Sicily/Simpson. Yes, the value defenders may see an increase in points, but then so too would the ultra premiums.

I predict Lloyd, Laird, Sicily, and Simpson will be the top averaging defenders at the end of the season.

But for the reason you’ve outlined, I’m not starting Laird (I’m making him my first upgrade target). I want to see the impact of the new rules on scoring before I bring in Laird. I expect no impact, but playing it ultra safe.

So you think the exact same top four defenders from last season will be exactly the same this season too.

History would suggest you will be way off the mark.

Yes... because the rule change is going to benefit three of the top four defenders from last season; and I’m confident Laird will maintain his average.

Without this rule change I’d not have this opinion.

It’s a perfect storm; previous seasons didn’t have a rule change like this.

Of course... it’s only an opinion.

But I’m putting my money where my mouth is: I’m starting with Lloyd & Sicily.

You’re entitled to your opinion but surely you can see the likelihood of what you’re suggesting is extremely low.

All Star game was actually quite enjoyable to watch today. Huge come back from Team Lebron

Felt like Curry was way off, missing so many shots

Was so good seeing Nowitski's start - came on and sunk his first 3 3's which got everyone up and about

AD only played 5 minutes, why bother? Just sit out and give someone else a go instead

Giannis was huge, especially his first quarter which was insane, but KD gonna KD - deserved MVP

I haven't considered Kelly once but he could be a decent pick

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
