Post by Bonalbio24 »

Hi i am new to the site and i would love to meet new people to have discussions about AFL with as i live in the UK and not many people here know how good a sport it is & how entertaining it is to watch! This is my Fantasy squad that i put together as i play vs my brother in our own fantasy game! The official Fantasy game is very difficult to fit so many players in so i prefer to limit it to 23 players rather than 26 or 30, I would love to hear everyone's opinions on my team and whether it would actually work as an actual unit! :) 👍 Thanks!

My Fullback = Harris Andrews (Brisbane Lions)
Back Pocket Left = Easton Wood (Western Bulldogs)
Back Pocket Right = Jayden Laverde (Essendon)
Centre Half Back = Jayden Short (Richmond)
Half Back Left = Shaun Atley (North Melbourne)
Half Back Right = Luke McDonald (North Melbourne)
Ruckman = Matt Flynn (GWS)
Ruck Rover = Elliot Yeo (WCE)
Rover = Jarryd Lyons (Brisbane Lions)
Centre = Lachie Neale (Brisbane Lions)
Wing Left = Blake Acres (Fremantle)
Wing Right = Harry Perryman (GWS)
Centre Forward = Robbie Gray (Port Adelaide)
Half Forward Left = Toby McLean (Western Bulldogs)

Forward Pocket Right = Daniel McStay (Brisbane Lions)
Full Forward = Tim Membrey (St Kilda)

I think you need Touk Miler in there somewhere…. Over 30 possessions last 9 games I think. Guy is a gun!

Hi Fred thanks for posting! Yeah Touk Miller is on fire this year an absolute beast, I know Lyons plays Ruck Rover but so does Elliot Yeo so it's the only way i could get both in the team? Which one is more suited to Rover in your opinion?

It's basically my favourite players for the most part rather than the best in their positions although some are the best in their respective positions in my opinion! Do the think Perryman would make a good Wideman? I initially had Papley as the CF but i moved Robbie Gray there so he is more involved in theory and his use of the ball is superior, also would Membrey be a good enough Full Forward? he is very good at marks even though he isn't as tall as some

Yes, Like Membrey - a good forward - kicks a few goals but also gets plenty of the ball - whereas many forwards, like McKay, kick plenty of goals but do little else - so points aren't always the best for a forward. Paplay can be hit and miss. Where do you have Zorko?

Zorko would have to play either Wing or Half Forward! I didn't want to over do Brisbane players so i just picked 5 and stopped there, Who are your favourite Collingwood players? I have always admired Howe and Treloar prior to this year!

Me and my brother had a limit of $12,500m when picking our respective 23 man squads using the official Fantasy starting season values

I see - yeah that can make it difficult. Sometimes you have to sacrifice with rookies to get the high scoring players. I find if you can get a back man who plays forward also it is useful. In saying that I think Steve May from Melbourne is a good pick up for a backman, Takes a lot of marks.
