    Still 4 months til R1 so you'd think if he gets the all clear he'll be back up and running at close to 100% by then.
    Probably worth leaving him until the bye. I wasn't aware how far behind he was! Let him use the first third of the year to get back to full fitness and avoid the bye, makes sense right?

    Thanks for that Goodie. I had hoped for that. Seems lots of interesting options popping up.
    There are no shortcuts to anywhere that is worth going to.

    I like the way Menegola goes about it but I'd like to see where he fits with Gaz in the side. Same as Parish with all the inclusions at Essendon. Spoiled for forwards either way this season.
    I'll still take Lobb as my third fwd thus far.

If the price is right (<250) and we see a clearly defined role in pre season I'll find it very hard to leave him out.

I reckon in 5 years time letting him go will be one of our biggest regrets.
    Cheers gents, looks like he'd be $315k without any discounts for the 5 games he's played. Not sure how they calculate discounts anymore but i think in previous years that number of games has warranted maybe a 10% discount so let's say a starting price between 280-315k.

    I don't mind taking a punt at that price personally, can always go down to a rookie or up to the 'right' breakout candidate when early corrections are needed.

    I've found that players that have played in the 4-7 game mark require an average of at least 60 to receive a discount, which Ah Chee just misses out on.

    Cheers mate, i figured you hadn't discounted him for a reason. Either way i don't mind him at that price.

    Hoping he has a solid but unspectacular NAB series lol

    Thoughts on Hutchings LITS?

    Gone backwards slightly in SC every year since his debut, but showed great ball winning ability in his early days and perhaps has a chance again now that Mitch and Pridd are gone? Won the Mainwaring medal this year despite very poor SC output so is being used as a tagger from what I can tell, but considering he will be priced at an average of 51 he should be super cheap?

    Maybe a stepping stone option?

    Would you expect the on-ball brigade to start something along the lines of...

    Centre Line: Gaff, Sheed, Redden
    Followers: Nic Nat, Shuey, Ah Chee

    ?
    Hutchings is a battler, The coaches & teammates love him and as you said... Is being used as a tagger most weeks. Disposal is a bit suspect at times but does all the grunt work that others don't.

    Not really an option for me in SC, As I still feel he is on the fringes and others will be ahead of him. With the club taking a different direction recently, I see us (Finally) pushing youth and playing the kids. We have the most players in the comp yet to debut on our list with 16 yet to play a game, so I fully expect them to start getting games and Hutchings could be one that misses out.

    Redden & Sheed are the 2 that I expect to take massive leaps this year, Sheed was a prolific ball winner as a junior and can rack up huge number, He really stepped it up last season after finally overcoming his horror 2016 with injuries. He got a lot more midfield minutes last season and I expect that to dramatically increase again with the departure of Priddis & Mitchell, I can see him avg 100 this year, His main query was his tank but I expect he will improve that with a injury free preseason this year.

    Redden is the other I expect to make a big jump, Once again, after overcoming injuries, He looked to finally be settling into his new club last season, Playing a HFF/MID role. In 2018 he should move directly into the guts with Venables taking over his role from last season. We know what Redden can do as we saw from 2011-2015 where he avg'd between 95-103 for those 5 years... So a return to that type of scoring should be on the cards, especially with the return of Nic Nat.

    Yeah I think that on-ball brigade is pretty close...

    Centre Line: Gaff, Sheed, Redden
    Followers: Nic Nat, Shuey, Ah Chee

    Maybe Yeo is added to the mix as well, Not really sure yet how they will use him, I personally think he plays best intercepting off Half Back and running through the middle. But he may see an increase in midfield minutes also.

    This just posted on the HS website. Some of the news is old, the rest is maybe new.
    Al Paton, Herald Sun

    “AFL stars are back in training and the 2018 SuperCoach pre-season has gone up another gear with the release of all player positions for next season.

    There have been some big changes after Champion Data assigned positions to every player on an AFL list based on data about where on the field they played last year.

    SUPERCOACH STAR: WHERE WILL ROCKLIFF PLAY IN 2018?

    Some of the most popular players of 2017 will be harder to pick next season and others have jumped into the selection frame for Australia’s biggest fantasy sports game.

    Let’s start with the bad news.

    Magpie Taylor Adams, who was the second-top scoring defender of 2017, is available for selection as a midfielder only next year.

    Top-scoring forward Jack Macrae has also lost his dual-position status and can only be picked in the midfield.

    Jack Steele (mid only), Jake Lloyd (defender only) and Lions pair Alex Witherden (defender only) and Jarrod Berry (mid only) are among the other players to lose DPP eligibility for 2018.

    And we’ll have to find a new ruck strategy with former ruck-forwards Toby Nankervis and Paddy Ryder now only available as rucks. Even Docker Luke Strnadica, who didn’t play a game but was a popular bench option, has lost his DPP eligibility.

    There are also a number of pure position changes.

    Elliot Yeo was classified as a mid-forward last season and averaged 103 points. Next year he is a defender.

    Kangaroo Shaun Higgins has moved from a forward to a midfielder, ex-defender Zak Jones is also a midfielder and Blues recruit Matthew Kennedy may have lost some of his appeal after Champion Data changed his position from forward to midfielder.

    One move SuperCoach players won’t mind is Port Adelaide star Robbie Gray. A former popular selection as a mid-forward, Gray slipped off the fantasy radar as a mid-only in 2017. But he is set to return with a bang next year after being classified as a forward.

    Gray copped a shock cancer diagnosis in October, but has resumed running and is expected to join full training after Christmas

    The ranks of new dual-position players are headed by Geelong’s Sam Menegola, who averaged 100 points a game as a midfielder in 2017 and can now be picked as a mid-forward.

    Chad Wingard, Travis Boak, Isaac Heeney, Will Setterfield and Michael Barlow may all attract interest as new mid-forwards, along with veterans Dale Thomas, Daniel Wells and David Mundy.

    Surprise Carlton recruit Jarrod Garlett is set to be a popular pick after being classified as a mid-forward.

    Another player with added flexibility is Docker Michael Walters, who averaged 111 points during a nine-week purple patch from Rounds 7-16 last year. He’s a mid-forward for 2018.

    SuperCoach players committed to a ruck-forward swing can look to Demon Cam Pedersen, Collingwood big man Mason Cox — flagged for a more prominent role next year by coach Nathan Buckley — and Bulldog Tim English.

    There are also plenty of DPP rookies including Tigers Jack Higgins and Patrick Naish (mid-forwards), Magpie Nathan Murphy (defender-forward), Carlton’s Lochie O’Brien (defender-mid), Pie-cum-Giant Lachlan Keeffe (defender-forward), Port Adelaide’s draft steal Sam Hayes (ruck-forward) and Brisbane academy star Connor Ballenden (forward-defender).

    And SuperCoaches will be relieved to note Luke Dahlhaus, Jordan de Goey and late-season bench saviour Tarir Bayok have all retained mid-forward status for 2018

    Gold should open within days for the usual pre-season early look. The NRL has done so this week.

    Nice work gents, thanks for the info.

    If I recall correctly, any Gold users need to beware of screen-shotting their team
    before the picker gets wiped as well!
