I like to get PODS from my rookies gaiz. It's the only way to really separate your team from the pack.


Currently running with Brooksby, Mabior Chol, Finbar O'Dwyer, and Jacob Koschitske.

Agree in parts, but you won’t have as many rookies gaining way more $$$.

You’ll be burning sideways trades as well for more players to become keepers as well, but I’m all about it... I love taking risks and picking breakout type players.

FYI I currently have BCrouch & Rocky in the mids as well.
I'm pretty happy with my first 3 mids and confident they will finish top 10.

Cogs
M.Crouch
Brayshaw


Steele I am banking on being my break out pick.

B.Crouch, Rocky and Sheed could do anything but I reckon it could be a fun ride so I am hopping on. Haha!

I've been tempted by Brayshaw. Absolute gun. The problem is, he'll have to average 150DT to get to 120SC.

Does Brayshaw have a particularly poor DE or is it that he takes a lot of uncontested marks, which don't score as well in SC as they do in RDT and AF?
Poorish DE.
He's young, he has time to improve
Gus is a bit like Sam Mitchell was as in he's duel sided which is one of his strengths, but it's also a weakness as he's prone to turning it over by foot, especially on his left side.

Also, his TOG was only 77% last year. Might have something to do with an interrupted pre-season, as his TOG% dropped over the final 6 rounds + finals. Hopefully he can get that TOG% up to 80+ this year with another pre-season under his belt.

My new mid price madness midfield -

Cogs, M.Crouch, Brayshaw, Steele, B.Crouch, Rocky, Sheed, Walsh

I'll probably join you in the deep midfield club, looking at 6 500+ guys. My only concern is constable on the bench, 92 vs WC away and 61 (50% TOG) vs Ess. With Scoot scoot selwood out I'd imagine he gets named R1. Geelongs early fixture is tough though.

Forward line is that shit for rookies that I’ve grabbed this juicy POD at f5. Will destroy whoever Saints put on him, and we have a pretty easy schedule for the first 5-6. Can see him averaging 85-95

Apologies if discussed previously, but Dahlhaus looks to be a pretty good forward option. Priced at $418k and previous season averages of 91.7, 104.5, 95.7, and 90.7 from 2014 to 2017. Only in 6% of teams.
So you’re saying he’ll average 90-100.

And at least that from Danger, GAJ, Jelwood, Menagola, Duncan, Hawkins

With a limit of 3300 points to share per match (between the other 37 players on the ground from both sides?)

I wish you well.

+ Kelly

no way I'm taking anyone else from Geelong (outside of rookies)

Constable is a good M9 option on the bench I reeckon.

I don't really feel comfortable having him at M8.

Only rookie I would consider at M8 would be Walsh or Butters.

Setterfield and Drew are better suited to our forward line so I have ruled both of them out.

I like Reddo. Good, solid player. I just don't really see him as SC relevant though. 0% ownership is probably why you haven't seen him in teams.

He's not a superpremo and i don't think he has the potential of a 110 average, so really you're just picking him for the POD benefits as an M8, which means you'd be aiming a 105 ave from him which would be a career best. His previous best is 103 back in 2014.


Stranger things have happened. He really hit his straps in the West Coast side finally last year. Wouldn't surprise me if he improved.
