Getting the Fantasy Footy edge

DaVe86 shares his Fantasy Footy tips. Have you ever wondered why certain fantasy coaches always seem to crack the top 100 every year? Regardless of which form of the game you play (Dream Team, AFL Fantasy or Supercoach), there is no doubt that being a good fantasy coach is a

AFL Fantasy prices and positions – Threepeat heroes or injury riddled zeroes?

The Hawks have provided Fantasy gold over the years, as befits one of the sides that has been one of the power teams of the competition for many seasons. Hodge, Mitchell, Lewis and others who may or may not have departed for more northern climes have long formed the backbone

AFL Fantasy prices and positions – Buddy and friends

As befits a team that has been premier, grand finallist or thereabouts in recent years, the Swans have provided many a quality Fantasy player. They also have a nice habit of providing a young player who explodes, last year Luke Parker took that role. If you can pick this year’s

AFL Fantasy prices and positions – To Sel and back again?

Geelong have provided the backbone of many a Fantasy team over the years. Stevie J, Joel Selwood, Bimmy Jartel, various Coreys, all have been regular and sustained performers. But can the old stagers keep performing? And is the young talent coming through? Will Geelong suffer the much predicted onfield slump

AFL Fantasy prices and positions – the Fyfe and Freo conundrum

Are Freo are a flag threat? Conventional wisdom says the boys from the west have one last shot in the locker, but I’m not so sure, I think they’ve been overtaken by a few teams like Port and even North. But the Dockers do have some Fantasy guns and they

AFL Fantasy prices and positions – Port laden with quality but at a price

Port Adelaide are tipped by many to go a long way onfield this year and common sense, and recent history, suggests this will be matched by Fantasy performances. The issue is that unlike last year, everyone else is thinking this too, including the pointy headed boffins that do the pricing

AFL Fantasy prices and positions – Boom time never ends at North

Like the proverbial fine wine, Brent “Boomer” Harvey appears to be getting better with age. Last year was his best on pure numbers and the pocket battleship appears to be in prime physical condition. The only worry with Harvey is his tendency to get rubbed out regularly. North have also

AFL Fantasy prices and positions – Tigers of old, or new blood?

The Tigers eh? You could, if you wanted, have innumerable Tigers in your team and it would, on paper, seem a wise decision: Martin, Cotchin, Deledio, Ellis, Rance etc etc. None of the key Tigers are ridiculously overpriced (except Ellis – see below) and they boast a bewildering array of

DreamTeam prices and positions: Bombs away for Goddard and Zaka

Essendon are a very interesting one. Obviously there is the elephant in the ro … nah I’ll come out and say it … the infraction notices that have been handed to 34 of their players, current and ex. What happens as a result of this will define the whole AFL

DreamTeam prices and positions – Waters a lock and the ruck duo dilemma

West Coast are still rebuilding under Adam Simpson but are not going the full bounce along the bottom for a few years to collect high picks route. The fanbase and wider club culture is simply too attuned to regular success to allow it. But while the young guns are blooded

DreamTeam prices and positions: Danger money worth the risk

The Crows are a funny one. “Good, but not great,” as George Bush Snr says approvingly of his own memoirs in The Simpsons, just like his presidency and the Crows haven’t been bad over recent years, but they haven’t been great either. This translates across to Fantasy terms as well.

DreamTeam prices and positions: Look past the big names at Collingwood

Nathan Buckley is doing his best to prepare the baying faithful for a season where a premiership is, shall we say, unlikely. The “quiet rebuild” of Collingwood continues apace and this means plenty of potential for Fantasy players if, as many predict, Buckley decides to play the proverbial kids. He’s

DreamTeam prices and positions: As usual for Gold Coast, its all about Gaz

They used to say No Carey, No North but last year we saw just how important Gary Ablett Jnr … “The Little Master” … is to Gold Coast’s onfield fortunes. No Gaz, no Suns and no finals. But in Fantasy terms losing the likes of Ablett doesn’t hurt too much

DreamTeam prices and positions: Brisbane: between a Rockliff and a hard place

There’s no denying that you have to have Tommy Rockliff in your team at some point. He just racks up so many points and while Brisbane have strengthened their midfield with the addition of Dayne Beams and Allen Christensen, Rockliff will still be registering big scores. But $775,000 is a

DreamTeam Prices and Positions: Bag a Blue? At your own risk

It will twenty years next season since Carlton last won a premiership. No other club has struggled – by its own admission – to move to the new equalised AFL reality than the mob who have “We’re Carlton, f@#k the rest” as an unofficial motto. Onfield Carlton are too good

Quite the off season for the Dogs. After the rebuild under Brendan McCartney seemed to be trending well with the likes of Jack Macrae, Marcus Bontempelli and Jake Stringer demonstrating that the Dogs had got the key high picks right, all hell broke loose. Captain Ryan Griffen’s request to be

DreamTeam prices and positions: Greater Western Sydney goldmine?

The Greater Western Sydney Giants are a shining example of the fantasy football law that dictates that a team’s onfield performance bears little to no correlation to its potential to contain players that can rack up points on a regular basis. The Giants are a team fantasy coaches will be

DreamTeam prices and positions : Dees with possible bargains for the bold

The AFL has begun its staggered release of the prices and positions of players for next season’s fantasy football competitions and first cab off the rank is the Demons. Melbourne’s onfield woes are well documented but fantasy football is not about whether a team wins or loses, but the output

Field of DreamTeams – time to improve the format

I managed to sneak into the final eight of my DreamTeam* league by beating a Swedish girl who has only been in the country for four years by the handsome margin of 27 points. That said, I will fully admit I’m not that great at DreamTeam, largely because I still,

Daydream Believer

I’ve done it. I’ve tipped the Tiges. Not only that, finalising my DreamTeam, I realised I have four Richmond players in there – Martin, Cotchin, Lids and Jack Riewoldt – four! FOUR! There’s no denying the Tigers hype at the moment. And the vast majority of neutrals are behind them.
