I learnt from last year how valuable DDP are. I had 2 trades with two finals to play and not DDP and needed a pod. lost my cash leagues and lost 1500 ranking spots. Definitely going to have a couple of options in every line.

only if DPP or selectable as a fwd would i personally consider him
Confirmed MID only.

With the dpp reductions and loss of a few gun fwd options my fear is everyone will have basically the same team from about rd 6 onwards
Bingo, with so few strong options I think FWD lines will end up looking more similar than ever.

Very tempted by Tom Boyd now as F6/F7 swapping with R3. Filthy that Bont isn't MID/FWD but will still select his majesty!

Dahlhaus and Macrae = lockity lock lock lock!!
Macrae as DPP has me totally stumped. Brilliant and critical player but direct scoreboard impact is his #1 weakness - he kicks the least goals of all of our regular midfield brigade. Even Hrovat and Dale outscored him from 4 games each :huh:
