I spent 3 months panning for round 1, Im just glad i have 3 months to plan for round 2...

Unfortunatly i have lost all interest in fantasy this year and football as a while at the moment. Its essentially right-off unless you win the car

Rd1 2020 Starting Mids.png


Apart from Tich these were/are my starting premium mids. I figured the first three were more likely to average 120+ than any other players and Cogs could go 10 pts higher than last year.

Remains to be seen, certainly week one was pretty underwhelming. It gives me great confidence though, that the Rd 1 leaders aren't there to stay. A lot of unsustainable picks amongst the top 25 teams. They better hope that these four players struggle because only 7 have Macrae; 9 have Coniglio; 1 has Dunkley and 1 has Kelly.

They are going to need Neale, Cripps and Viney to keep it up for their teams to keep scoring well.

This is what 99.9% of teams will look like if reset to unlimited trades.

Smith, Houston, Doch, Howe, Noble, Young (Brander, Starcevich)

Macrae, Taranto, Coniglio, Titch, Viney, Rowell, Anderson, Pickett (Brown, McInerney)

Grundy, Naismith (Cameron)

Dusty, Wingard, Petracca, Smith, Bewley, Taylor (Budarick, King)

Utility: some scrub

^ Taranto might still be out ?

Callan Ward on the other hand is beautifully priced at 530. Blake Acres also relevant (Bewley might be pushed out)

In the context of the upcoming resumption obviously...

any injuries / players likely to be pushed out by returning players
Oh plenty
I'd be surprised if the following players in my squad are still playing R2
Cumming (on field), Green (on field), T.Brown, Mcinerney, Cavarra, C.Jones (on field), Budarick

My 3 trades are definitely going to be boring rookie fixes.

Same. I'm worried that there won't be many replacement rookies in R2, if most squads are at full strength.

Bennell will be popular, if he's in.

I can see a world where I end up holding some NPRs, hoping that they return in later rounds. Cash generation could be pretty poor for a while.

1 extra trade is the fantasy equivalent of fixing a gun shot wound with a band-aid. Seeing as it’s effectively a different season now, all things being equal the game should be reset to preseason mode with R1 scores & team value carried over. However we all know what Fanhub is like.. that would be infinitely more work than they’re prepared to do.

Finding it really hard to get motivated now. My Round 1 was disappointing and the reduced quarters gives me no confidence in anyone.

Probably just forced trades to fix rookies. I very much doubt any of my bench will be playing.

If 80 is the new 100 ie. 80 x 1.25, then how come 75 players scored 80+ yet in 2019 and 2018 only 55 and 47 scored 100+?

Edit: My best uneducated guess is that this year the highest scorers had higher TOG% than they usually would.

Maybe.
