2015 Cheat Sheet – Roy, Calvin and Warnie’s teams

Everyone wants some advice. Unfortunately we can’t answer everyone, so here’s a cheat sheet with our teams (and more)!

It is intense here at the moment and we are copping a heap of questions on Twitter, Facebook and via text from our mates. We have arrived in Melbourne for the game tonight and unfortunately we don’t have a lot of time to answer everyone. So here’s something we have whipped up in the final hours before the partial lockout kicks in.

Here is what we are calling our ‘cheat sheet’ for this year. It’s free and make sure you check out the links below for just some of the epic content from the site recently. You can make your minds up from this info!








Good luck!

    I think you made a mistake printing the same team for Roy and Calvin…

    April 2, 2015 at 4:13 pm

    That is one full on midfield that Roy has

        Are you sure they are named tonight?

    Surprised none of these teams have a premium ruck

    • Albert Lloyd

      April 2, 2015 at 4:39 pm

      Not surprised with 95% of the cap being spent on the mids

      • Timothy

        April 2, 2015 at 5:15 pm

        My team looks so much better with cheap rucks, just hope they stay on the park

    I can’t find the option to add celebrity teams, can anyone help? Or do I need to wait till next week when leagues begin

    • Dogs Breakfast

      Leagues – Settings (gear icon) – add/manage celebrities (over on left hand side)

        I see The Traders as an option but not warnie, roy and calvin as individual teams. There seems to be more celeb teams to chose from, the problem is some celeb players seem to forget their team half way through the season. I’ll pick the traders and maxwell for now, from the podcasts it seems like nick maxwell takes it pretty seriously

        • Warnie


          April 3, 2015 at 7:18 pm

          Yep, he does. It’s a shame we aren’t able to be added as celebs individually.

  10. leighroy

    April 2, 2015 at 4:39 pm

    I still don’t understand the loophole. Is it meant to get two doubled scores or just one?

    • Albert Lloyd

      April 2, 2015 at 4:44 pm

      Its meant to effectively give you 2 shots at getting a captain’s score.

      You need a non playimg player in your 30 to make it work doe.

  11. Gollo

    April 2, 2015 at 4:51 pm

    This has made me feel really, really insecure about my midfield. I feel the urge to now get Parker over Selwood.

    • Gollo

      April 2, 2015 at 4:59 pm

      *S Selwood

    The DT gods have spoken. Disregard backline, load midfield.

    • bomberpap

      April 2, 2015 at 5:12 pm

      all depends on what you value. technically you could load up your fwd and backs and ruck with the result of getting a few under 600k mids and then all rooks hoping there will be 1 or 2 (posibly Cripps?) that turns into a Barlow-esque lock and then work on upgrading your mids throughout the season.

    • leetrevor81

      April 2, 2015 at 6:35 pm

      Well yes another strategy is loading up your forwards and backs since the best rooks would be in the midfield. In this scenario you could potentially have a full strength side quicker and better scoring rookies

    • Warnie


      April 3, 2015 at 7:17 pm

      Not sure if we’re going to see too many beast midfield rookies to be honest.

  13. SHAMM3R

    April 2, 2015 at 5:05 pm

    1. T.Adams or M.Bontempelli

    2. Best 2 of :Vandenberg or C.Smith or Miller or Anderson or Freeman?

  14. Fat Knife

    April 2, 2015 at 5:06 pm

    These teams seem ill disciplined and greedy to me

  15. Kirk Mackintosh

    April 2, 2015 at 5:08 pm

    should i keep jacobs hard decision

    • bomberpap

      April 2, 2015 at 5:13 pm

      in the same dilemma…. I’m currently tossing up between two scenarios.

      1) Ablett and Maric/Goldstein
      2) Selwood and Jacobs

      • Stevo

        April 2, 2015 at 6:22 pm

        Ablett and Goldy for me Bomber

        Not sure what your situation with Jacobs is Kirk so its hard to help. He’ll be one of the best rucks easily. Up to you with what you would do with the money.

    Amateur move Calvinator, only 2 emergencies picked ;)

  18. TRockliff

    April 2, 2015 at 5:23 pm

    Guys should i jump on the bandwagon and have 3 guys under 200k in my defence or not????? Please anyone have any thoughts

    • Stevo

      April 2, 2015 at 6:12 pm

      I think its a terrible idea, apart from goodes the def rookies are at best average, fwd and mid rookies are still better so if anything by doing that you are taking longer for your cash cows to grow and missing out on more valuable players imo.

    • Stevo

      April 2, 2015 at 6:19 pm

      I will say it does give you more points because of the stacked mids or fwd line which will score better but I don’t think it’s worth it because the fwd and mid rookies are worth more in terms of growth and scoring potential.

    Good to see warnie jumped to bellchambers / leuenberger ruck combo after all the talk of set & forget rucks :P

    • Warnie


      April 3, 2015 at 7:13 pm

      I was keen, but then the lack of rookies I am confident on made me change!

  20. Shags

    April 2, 2015 at 6:05 pm

    Why isnt there a DT Talk Open league where we all compete against each other?

    DT Talk Boys, get onto it!

    • Warnie


      April 3, 2015 at 7:12 pm

      DT Talk Open Group: 35ZWCPR4

    I don’t remember which article I posted it under, but I definately mentioned that teams get more similar as the season progresses. I also mentioned that I found that 3-5 uniques was normal for most finals matches.

    I also remember Warney mentioning how thought 7-9 uniques was more accurate according to his research. Well mate, you don’t even have 7-9 uniques between all your starting teams. How do you plan to make your team more unique when everyone will be trading out the same injured players in the same rookies / form players as the season progresses?

    Please dont talk it up when the facts dont support it. Thats all I ask.

  22. johnny fontane

    April 2, 2015 at 6:22 pm

    i have 25 25 and 22 players the same. starting 3 rookie defenders is faaar too risky.

    April 2, 2015 at 6:54 pm

    Hey lads.. what’s better?
    A) C Pearce and R. Griffen – Play pearce on field
    B) Oxley and <643 mid? JPK maybe? – play McIntosh on field

    • Stevo

      April 2, 2015 at 7:02 pm


    • bomberpap

      April 2, 2015 at 7:03 pm

      B with Selwood/Pendles maybe

  24. bomberpap

    April 2, 2015 at 6:57 pm

    Looks like AFL Fantasy site has crashed! Hope you guys were all set…. I’m nervous bout my rooks!

    • bomberpap

      April 2, 2015 at 7:15 pm

      Clem Smith the Sub… unlucky for anyone who whipped him in and now can’t get on the AFL website

    Is it still worth having a premium ruckman?

    • swanlow36

      April 3, 2015 at 1:44 pm

      Premium ruck is a must in case Leuey goes down again.

    • Warnie


      April 3, 2015 at 7:14 pm

      Still a lot of merit in it. I would LOVE to, but I’m liking this due to the state of the rookies.
