DreamTeam Time

Round 8, 2011

Posted by The Shadow on May 11, 2011 (0 Comments)

So we have two undefeated teams going at it on Friday night in what could make or break a lot of interest in this year's AFL season. If Geelong fail to get within 5 goals of Collingwood, then we can safely assume Collingwood will win the flag with ease. As a Geelong supporter I hope this won't be the case.

Anyways, on to Round 8 of DreamTeam.

Couple of injuries that will have a few coaches throwing their plans out the window. Jack Grimes done for the season, and Ed Curnow, the moneymaking Carlton rookie injuring his AC joint which will sideline him for several weeks.

Depending on your midfield depth and trades remaining, I recommend holding on to Curnow until we hear more from the medicos. Grimes on the other hand will be one of the most traded players this round.

Potential premium targets include:

Gibbs*, Goddard, Adcock, Carrazzo*, Scotland*, Shaw, Deledio, Enright*, Rawlings*, Newman.

The players with the asterisks next to their name all have a bye during DreamTeam finals. So if you're just going for the league win, I really encourage you to avoid these players. It should be noted too that Carlton have the bye this week.

Newman has been able to post solid numbers in the past, and I think if you're struggling for cash, he is the pick of the rest.


Potential downgrade targets include:

Pedersen ($98k, B/E -62), Hibberd ($92.5k, B/E ??), Puopolo ($92.5k, B/E ??)

All three have their job security (JS) issues. But if I was to take one, I'd probably grab Hibberd if he gets named this week.
