Today we have the first upload of Baker’s Cheat Sheet for 2013.
It includes his complete team after the first 2 weekends of NAB cup and a quick brief on each selection. Hopefully it can stir some thought, questions and arguments about who you are starting in your Dream Team in 2013.
Here it is… (CLICK TO SEE FULL SIZE)
Goddard – Must Have
Gibbs – Must Have
Waters – One of 3 possible targets, I think as long as Beau stays injury free he is a must have but other possibilities are Suckling or Heppell, check them out before the season starts
Birchall – Very impressive last year but I could never afford to bring him in. He will do well this year with Lake down back allowing him the freedom to run into the midfield more, however I am keeping a close eye on Broughton and Duffield for this same spot in my DT.
Goodes – No not Adam, Brett, he is a gun pickup for the Bulldogs. With the departure of Lake and Hargrave he will definitely get game time. Cash Cow $$$ Cha Ching!
Stevenson – Cash Cow $$$ Cha Ching!
Docherty – Cash Cow $$$ Cha Ching!
Terlich – Cash Cow $$$ Cha Ching!
Swan – Must Have, if you do not have him in your team then delete your Dream Team IMMEDIATELY!
Ablett – Must Have, Same as above delete twice!
Pendlebury – Even missing time last season with a leg injury he still averaged 110. He will dominate with Swan this year.
Jack – I made this decision because of the draw Sydney has in the first two rounds against Gold Coast and GWS. I only plan to keep one of either Jack or O’Keefe after round 3. I want their big scores.
O’Keefe – I’m thinking I will keep Ryan over Kieran, however I am still undecided.
Wines – Cash Cow $$$ Cha Ching!
Crouch – Cash Cow $$$ Cha Ching!
O’Meara – If Gary Ablett says he wants to play for O’Meara because will be captain when the Gold Coast wins its first Premiership, I want in on that action!
Mitchell – Cash Cow $$$ Cha Ching!
Viney – Cash Cow $$$ Cha Ching!
Cox – I still think he is the No 1 ruck in the competition. I did have Sandilands but with his current injury I moved Cox from my forward line back to my ruck.
Leuenberger – He is a bargain price and sure to go up in price. Long term I will use him to upgrade to a Naitanui or a Maric.
O’hAilpin – Sheedy said he wants Setanta to get his 200 games means he will play occasionally and probably share ruck duties with Giles but will also push forward and kick goals. Hopefully.
Currie – With the departure of Macintosh to Geelong, either he or Daw will get game time. Cash Cow $$$ Cha Ching!
Franklin – As a Hawks man I can’t go passed my main man Buddy. He will dominate as he always does.
Robinson – I had Mitch in my team all year last year and he very rarely let me down. My thinking is the more midfielders you have in your forward line the better. They are going to make more points than an outright forward.
Lewis – Jordan really impressed me with his attack on the footy last year and I wished I had picked him from the start. He will never give up and always give you a good consistent return for your money.
Varcoe – Bargain priced fwd/mid due to injury last year. Should be a good little money earner ready for an upgrade later on in the season.
Byrnes – Premiership player with Geelong, surely he is gonna cut loose at Melbourne. Was best on ground during an intra-club match. Cash Cow $$$ Cha Ching!
Macaffer – Injury is why this player is so well priced. He will play and make some good money for my team. Cash Cow $$$ Cha Ching!
Growden – Cash Cow $$$ Cha Ching!
Lee – Cash Cow $$$ Cha Ching!
Ha Ha Baker you make it look so easy. Thanks heaps for taking some time to share your team with us all. I imagine you’ll change it 30 times between now and Round 1 (like the rest of us hahaha) but we really appreciate the insight into your thoughts at this early stage.
Stay tuned for more Cheat Sheets right through the NAB cup leading into Round 1.
