For those who take it way too seriously

Well its time to sell those rookies with most starting to peak. Given most people have a combination of Wonaeamirri, Hill, Jack, Morton, Bird, Tippett, Rioli and Gamble there is plenty of dollars to be made.

But who should you upgrade to? Buying the most expensive player you can afford isn’t necessarily the best option and just like selling at the right price, you should make sure you try and buy at the right price.

So, focusing on price, here are my “Gun”, “Mr. Consistency” and “roughie” selections across the backline, midfield and forward line.


Andrew Mackie: $382,200. Expensive but a gun, and no
one has him (only 4,557 owners!!). 60pts round 1 and got injured then
73 &amp; 76 coming back from injury in rounds 5 and 6. Since then =
137, 97, 86 and 102. That’s an average of 105.5 over the past month!

Mr. Consistency:
Nathan Bock: $341,700. Consistency and
backline don’t really go together and Bock isn’t super consistent but
with an average of 86.80 and low of 60 he’s not a bad pick at a good
price. Birchall is another option but doesn’t seem to have the ability
to 100+ like Bocky.

Andrew McLeod: $251,400. With a name like McLeod
it’s a rare “roughie” but with a price like $250k it’s hard to ignore.
Maybe wait a week or two and make sure there isn’t some underlying
injury causing his recent bad scores (first 7 weeks he averaged 82.14,
last 3 weeks he has averaged 38.66), but at this rate you could
“downgrade” Wonaeamirri to McLeod!?!?


Jimmy “don’t call me James” Bartel: $417,100. Is a DT
star and about as cheap as he will get. Averaging 106.3 and down
$79,700 in price! Get on him. Tackles, kicks goals, takes marks, and
has a bloke named Ablett grabbing the attention next to him.

Mr. Consistency:
Simon Black: $396,800. Black’s middle
name is consistency. Average of 99.22 with a low of 83 and a high of...
Wooah, its going to be a big week in trading and if you dont make 2 trades this weekend - you are crazy. There are cheap rookies that are about to shoot like fireworks and we have got some ripping buys this week. Even bargain basement is charging more than the SuperCoach shop. As Darrell Eastlake would say 'Its HHHUUUUUGGGGGGEEEE!'

[span style="font-size: 1.4em;">BARGAIN OF THE WEEK
[span style="font-size: 0.8em;">Lindsey Gilbee
[span style="font-size: 0.6em;">Peaked: 579k. Now: 409k. BE: 51.
As we all know this bloke is a SuperCoach legend, from the top of my head his efficiency was above 95% on the weekend. He is unbelievable at hitting the target. But, he has had little ferrets following him around this year and it is hurting his scores only averaging 87. But, he wont continue that forever he is apart of the in form team of the competition and got a yummy 135 points last week. Seriously, if you got any mid priced backmen left, go for the bee. Watch out for Birss though he has lockedout Shaw and McLeod well in the past. Fact of interest: He has the 3rd current biggest fall in price since the start of the year.

BEST BUYS[span style="font-size: 0.8em;">
Paul Chapman

[span style="font-size: 0.6em;">Peaked: 613k. Now: 487k. BE: 56.
Alot of teams need this boy back, with forwards dropping like flies. Get on him, if named. Read the last couple of weeks for more information. Plus, he plays Friday so, you can wait all the way up to the late changes to see if he drops out.

Nick Riewoldt

[span style="font-size: 0.6em;">Peaked: 612k. Now: 456k. BE: 64.
The Roo, this bloke is just playing in a team that isnt getting the ball to him as easy as they have in the past. He played Melbourne last week - therefore a massive score. Cause even Kurt Tippett could score 100+ against them the way theyre traveling. Speaking of Kurtos might be a decent...
Its back for another week, and its prefect time to downgarde with good solid options in the backline, the midfield and up forward. I will do it the same format as last week and hopefully we dont have anyone bail on us like Valenti last week. Dont forget to check out this weeks THE DOGS BEST BUYS to work out what you are going to do with those bobs.


1. Beau Wilkes -WCE
Price: 84k. BE: -131 Postion: DEF
This blokes looking sensational at rookie price and scoring elite scores (by McLeods standards anyway). But, that is the problem he is off the rookie list and I have no idea how long he wil be there. But, with the other Beau in Waters out for the next two weeks, I can see him getting a game til atleast he comes back. I would still be careful selecting him cause as a 8th back, cause he likely to get dropped at some stage. I think your well aware of whos peak and shizbang so I wont bother going through those. But, Im definitely trading out Taylor for the big guy.

2. Stane Valenti - MEL
Price: 84k. BE: -84. Postion: FWD
Hes up here again after getting dropped last week. But, I actually want him to stay out for another week cause with Burton out its forced me to trade and I think I prefer Beau over Shaneo. Enough about me, he will get a game this week at the expense of Robbo. So, jump on him if he is going to be your 9th forward.

3. Jarryd Morton - HAW
Price: 95k. BE: -85 Postion: FWD
This bloke is a senstional player and I know alot have been waiting for his debut. And, he has delivered with 61 and 80 points. Although his 80-point preformance on the weekend was alot better than an 80-point preformance - he was tearing it up. Probably going to get higher scores than the Val but I dont think he will be in the team as long. Its a tough one to split but I would go with Valenti by a bees dick.

4. Josh P. Kennedy - HAW
Following on from Brays Review of Round 10 - Captain Considerations, I fear will look a little similar this week - mainly because there are a few big guns in irresistible form, ones that I reckon you just cant go past in deliberating on your captains this week.

[span style="font-size: 1.2em;">The Usual Suspects:

Gary Ablett

Seriously, going past him is nonsense in the form that hes in.
Destroyed Carlton with a third quarter out of the books where he got
about a million possessions. Having said that, whats the money that
Rawlings just puts a monster tag on Ablett now that Ive said that.
Anyway, not having Ablett as your captain is frought with danger, as
those who didnt (sigh) when he got 254 found out the hard way.
Averages over 130 - hard to argue with the proposition that Ablett
should be your captain when hes the form player of the comp.&nbsp;

Buddy Franklin

Again, in good form and playing an Essendon side devoid of defensive
pressure and possibly without Mal Michael. Buddy has kicked bags of
goals against better defences so could look for another big haul
against the Dons this week. Could be distracted by his drink-throwing
storm in a teacup controversy - but unlikely. Buddy can score well
even when he doesnt get a lot of the ball or the Hawks arent
dominating so he is a bit of a safer pick than some of the other key
forwards. Scored 160 and 108 against the Dons last year so put him
firmly in your thoughts this week.&nbsp;

Adam Cooney

If Ablett is not the form player in the comp, then Cooney is. Scored
130 against the Saints earlier this year - albeit with their No1 tagger
out due to suspension. Scores of 60 and 81 in their matchups last year
suggest he could be a bit risky - but in far better form this year and
should be thereabouts for a big score this week.&nbsp;

Dean Cox

Big Cox is scoring well, continually getting close to, or if not
Rob Murphy (ave: 103), Brett Burton (ave: 96) and Beau Waters (ave: 56) are all set to miss a couple of weeks for head high contact. That is going to hurt alot of teams cause at this stage of the year we are all looking for downgrades and upgrades. Plus, those in the National Rankings race dont want Tippett in their starting side.

Also, reports aint the only things hurting our sides. Injuries were everywhere on the weekend - Robbo is out for the season which is sad news for all footy fans. Brock McLean, Kane Johnson and Jonathon Brown are also big names that might miss weeks with little injuries.

UPDATE: Kane Johnson will miss 3-4 weeks, although the <a href=",26576,23797381-19742,00.html">Hearld Sun says Steve[/url] - I think they mean Kane. Haha.

The trio head hitters <a href=",8659,23797445-23211,00.html">have the bans[/url] and Burton and Waters get offered 2 weeks, while Murphy gets 1. This buggers up my trades, hopefully Chapster returns.
Its great to see the interest growing in this blog - 2000 members, comments and heaps of hits. But, to grow it we need more people on board. Just looking for a couple to help me and N.Cee and I dont think it will hurt if they have a couple others on the DreamTeam side of things.

It is getting an exciting time for TooSerious and we do plan to become the number 1 fantasy football site. We have got loads of stuff in the pipeline. And, here is your last chance to be apart of it. So, if ya love ya stats, ya footy and SuperCoach or DT. Your the man. Just pop either me ( an email if ya interested in the SuperCoach side, and ya best to email Walesy if ya keen on the DreamTeam blog.

But, we aint stopping there if you know anything that could help us out just let us. Could be website coding (cause it wont hurt to spice it up), maybe even a way we could get some merch happening or anything other thing that you might think could come in handy for us. Like I said just pop me and email. Or, even leave a comment.

Yes, Roo is back, Nick Dal is ripping it up, Goddard tripled his score in Junktime, Tanga is back after a couple of down
weeks, Jones is some no-name that
down alright, Fisher is always
solid, Good on you if you...
So, the round is done and dusted, and how did you go?

I got my biggest score of the year, which has kept me in the eliminator for another week *high-five*

2107... Finally broke the 2100 barrier!

All in all, a good week for DreamTeam for me... And another week where my DreamTeam score beat my Supercoach score...

So I ask, howd you go? Who excelled? who disappointed? and most importantly, whos still in?
How are all your players going this week? Fill us in with your current score and what your expecting? And, fellow Chapster owners do want to join me to stab hack Tippett?

UPDATE: Dean Cox is legend, Hawks have there lowest SuperCoach scoring game all year, Brownie is back, as is Stevie J.

But, Heath Shaw your a disgrace.
Thats right, sometime between now and yesterday, TooSerious had its 2000th account signed up.

Which is what, 1 percent (roughly) of the combined Supercoach/Dreamteam users... taking into account doubles and stuff...

Which is pretty swish I reckon.

So thank you all for all the support, for the messages, and now with the blog, for the Comments.
