Gday Gents!

Pretty cookie cutter but fairly settled on this structure. May get rid of English and find some cash for Dunkley pending form however I expect ruck coverage will be crucial due to covid and byes. English only has to improve a little to be a top 8 forward and has a lot of upside.

Would also like to start Crisp.

Bont as a pod going for a brownlow vs Macrae who will be in every side is either genius or disaster...

14 keepers:

I think ive settled on my team now. For the last day or so ive tried to make changes to improve it but i just keep reversing them and going back to the same team.

By position:
Back = 4 keepers, 1 low-end mid-pricer, 1 rookie
Mid = 4 keepers, 2 standard mid-pricers, 2 rookies
Ruck = 1 standard mid-pricer, 1 low-end mid-pricer
Forward = 3 keepers, 1 standard mid-pricer, 1 low-end midpricer, 1 rookie

Hoping that 1 midfield mid-pricer becomes a keeper and 1 forwardline mid-pricer becomes a keeper which would leave me with 13. Going with 1 or 2 PODs but that is it. Day, Young, Baker, SPS have featured in my backline at times but currently i dont have any of them. LDU is currently in my midfield so he would have to be my biggest POD. Biggest ? i still have is whether to pick Rowell.

Overall though, im pretty sure my team will stay similar until the pre-season games which will inevitably throw everything into disarray.

We have really similar structures.

11 keepers and 7 midpricers, at least two of which need to end up being keepers or we're plucked.

That's why they call it Mid Price Madness...

Good luck with it mate

I like to think we dont need 2 to be keepers if all 7 mid-pricers perform and allow (virtually) straight swaps to fallen premos. That said, going into a season with half a team of non-keepers takes guts. I have always maintained that mid-price madness is a harder strategy to get right but if you do it can pay off big time. Each year is different though, im pretty confident in all my mid-pricers but if they fail, ill be in trouble. Good luck to you as well!

Nice, it’s all coming down to a premium M5 vs Dunkley F1 in terms of structure for me.

Dunks nearly my fav non cat, will he play enough mid minutes to start early? Macrae, Treloar, Libba, Hunter, hes a better forward than all of them even with the worst kicking action in the league. Something’s gotta give. He will score OK no matter what coz the man knows how to tackle. Thoughts as a doggies man?

Given how many players will end up out at some point due to COVID exposure, and given that Libba's knees are held together with duct tape and prayer, I reckon Dunks will get a decent amount of mid time. He's first into the centre if any of Bont, Libba, and Macrae is out.

I love Midpricers as well be you need to have the rookies to generate cash. My current team has 3 forward rookies you still only have 2.
I'm comfortable all my 200-350k players will make cash.
Hopefully they score at a higher rate than a 100k rook.
The bar is so low in the forward line as a keeper and I can always trade a dud midpricer to a rookie if they fail and get an upgrade elsewhere.
My plan is 12 premos 5 rookies on field.
