AFL Dream Team Check List:


1. Make sure you have at least one absolute gun. I would normally recommend Swan but with his 2 byes by round 13 alternatives like Montagna or Boyd may be an option. An investment in any of these players is well worth it. Keep in mind if you do stick with the Swan as pricey as he may seem. You are in-effect getting 2 of him once you put the (C) next to his name. double 100 = 200 but double 115 = 230. So for the the extra 50k or so you are getting 30pts per week.


2. Add up future upgrades. Look at your team across the board. Count the number of players you will need to upgrade to have it filled with guns by season end. Any more than 7 or 8 is a bit too much. I will be  reserving around 8 swaps for injuries. the other 16 will be used for upgrades and downgrades. This is a reasonably aggresive approach. If you are more in it for the league win you may want to leave a few more trades for upgrades and play a more conservative approach.


3. Check the fixture card. When choosing your rookies this is very important. When you are looking at ditching a rookie who is close enough to maxed out by about round 7 a player who's team with a friendly run to start the season might be the way to go. Of course the dreaded byes will also play a big part in this decision this year if you are tawn between two rookies you like but have room for just one the one with the byes price will ofcourse take that extra week to rise so it may be the deciding factor.


4. Check for injuries. Even if it means doing a GOOGLE news search every player in your list. you may even discover an off season injury that has interrupted one of your players pre-season. Meaning there score output may not be at the level you are expecting.


5. Cross your fingers when those teams come out. With a bit of luck all your team will be named and you want have to make a mess of your perfectly selected Dream Team at the last minute.

Great tips.

So now the season is underway, when is the best time to trade some of your rookies who debut and get games for other non playing rookies?

Trade them in when you believe they have reached there peak price. I usually have an average in mind for each cow and trade out when I am happy they have leveled out to that price. Of course you have to concider the previous 3 games that make up the formula for price rise or drops. Hold while those scores are still big. But if you are reasonably happy with the price a rookie has reached and they put in a bad one it is time to trade down. They won't rise until that score rolls out of there last 3 games average.
