My Team 2018: Version 2.1

It has been a week since Fantasy opened so it’s time for a new My Team!

Fantasy is back! The game opened up last week and 20 thousand coaches have already got their teams in. They’ll be tweaked hundreds of times over the next 50 days until lockout.

Post your team (in an easy to read format) and discuss where it’s at in the comments below. Now that we have My Team cranking, discuss any players, team structure, etc in the comments. As always, keep it civil and if you’re advice, make sure you dish out some of your own (make sure it well thought out and not blatant trolling – we’re totally over that after 10+ years of DT Talk!).

Get keen for a massive season ahead.

Join our open DT Talk league – EJEFTZ9H

    Thoughts on my current team…

    DEF: Laird, Crisp, Brayshaw, Coffield, Cumming, Murray (Mirra, Doedee)

    MID: Mitchell, Merrett, Rockliff, B Crouch, Cripps, LDU, T Kelly, Freeman (Wigg, Worpel)

    RUCK: Kreuzer, Gawn (Cameron, English)

    FWD: Billings, Heeney, D Smith, Lobb, A Young, Ahern (Venables, Rioli)

    43k remaining

    I’m torn between Brayshaw and Hanley for D3, and Aaron Young could become a rookie, but I think he has a lot of room for improvement.

      Three defender rookies is risky but if it pays off then you have cash generation and gives you the ability to make other lines stronger which you have done. Midfield is good but Wigg is out for at least half the season. Rucks are good and there is value in your Forward line!

      Why would a team want Rocky? What is Rocky the best at? Clearances, tackles & possessions. He’s going to be playing a similar role that he was at the Lions.
      Rocky will go 115-130.
      Parker burned me, and I think all the Sydney mids will travel the same again this year.

      Probably 1. Shaw 2. Sicily 3. Scharanberg.

      However, noone stands out so I would be opting for more value through the likes of Brayshaw/Mcgrath (I prefer Brayshaw) and use the cash elsewhere.

      As a Hawks supporter, even though I love him, I couldn’t pick him. Will likely play up fwd and play a role like Gunston used to. Even tho he’s a jet, I just can’t see him scoring 90+ in that role. Might be a season too early to get him.

        yes rumour is Ryan to play forward, Sicily to stay down back and possibly pick up a hodge type role (i just made that last bit up)
