That's the kind of team that looks like an easy win in a league only to get beat by 300 points after a De Goey 150.
I agree. I think its the type of team that can be both underestimated and overestimated and thus can badly under-achieve and over-achieve. If my PODs fire it is capable of putting up a good score but by the same token, it relies on several players increasing their average significantly so can go catastrophically wrong. Round 1 was a bit like that, i only managed 1960 odd even with the right rookies on field and no injury issues etc but then recovered with 2280 odd last round with a terrible rookie score of 20 on field, Neale being sh*t, Young & Clarke doing nothing & Caldwell getting injured by early in the 3rd quarter.

To be honest, its probably more likely to fail then succeed given the amount of risks ive taken but it is definitely unique and thus harder to predict! It also means my trading decisions are tougher than the average GnR team as i need to be very savvy with which mid-pricers i cull and which ones i keep. What i will say, i think the best thing about my team is the rookies. They arent quite perfect but i pretty much nailed the mids & forwards and after trading Highmore into my team, my back rookies are ok. Of course things change weekly regarding rookies but currently im happy with them.

I got the jitters near lockout in week one and ended up with a few less midpricers than I had most of the preseason.

Ended up going with:

Jordan Clark
Taranto; Tom Phillips
———
Caldwell; Ziebell; Daniher

A fair few of my drafts also had:
Lachie Young
Dow
Impey

Not too disappointed to have missed L.Young and Dow. Probably getting Impey for Caldwell this week.

This is the best thing about the mid-pricers madness, we have a quicker route to upgrade them to premos.
I've trimmed two this week, Dow & Young, starting with the cheapest :p

Not really, it just worked out that one was a dud and the other has an injury.

So only 9 mid-pricers to go.
Hopefully, I can keep 4 of them in the final team.

Just like the rookies, I think there will be weeks where these mid-pricers are studs and there are weeks when they are duds.
Hopefully, we'll get more weeks of studs rather than duds scores :D

I have been tempted to turn Tom Phillips into Mitchell or Brayshaw this week, but I think I’ll hold him for a week or two so I can straight swap him to Lachie Neale.
I've been thinking of doing the sideways Neale-McNeil mid year
