Title: The BYES
Post by: ttste1 on April 23, 2014, 08:30:50 am
How is everyone looking coming into the BYE rounds? How are you structuring your teams?

Have not even thought about it :-[

Will have a look at how I am tracking later today :-X

Yeah nor have I. It occured to me it could be a problem when I started stacking my backline with Hawthorn players. I don't actually think it matters, your best 18 players count. Works well if you've got 18 non-rookie players playing each of the rounds.

Outlined from the AFL website below.

There will be three Rounds (8, 9 and 10) in 2014 where six AFL teams will have a Bye in each Round.
During these Rounds you select your starting Team of 22 as normal, but only your best 18 Players will score.
Note that if your Captain

Ok so at the moment i've got a 12/7/11 structure meaning I will have:
-18 playing in Round 8
-23 playing in Round 9
-19 playing in Round 10

But I am sure that will change with trades in the next few weeks.

I am in a similar position. Discounting this weeks trades I've got a 11/7/12.

I should probably start to balance that out. 10/10/10 going into the byes is pretty managable. By round 10 you could be 12/11/7 or something similar.

Lots of sideways movement

12/7/11. Next week's trades will be entirely bye focused.

I'm at 9/10/11 atm before trades this week
One possible planned trade will change that to 10/10/10

Nek minute injuries and/or rookies we have to jump on before they play a game so we get them at original price ::) >:(

After trades this week - 14, 6, 10.  :-X

443k left so hopefully upgrade some R8 rookies next week.

After current trades for this week 13/7/10.

Haven't tracked byes for AF as much as the other 2 comps at this stage due to the 2 trades a week thingo, but will get those Rd.8 bye numbers down the next couple of weeks.

Ill be 15 3 12 after this rounds trades of bringing in swan and danger for wines and mitchell (sydney). first week of byes could be challenging with ambrose and pierce not playing atm. Hopefully i dont pick up any injuries.

I'm not travelling that great- with a 12-6-12 bye structure!

Need to trade in rd 9 players!!
Title: Re: The BYES
Post by: R.Griffen on April 29, 2014, 02:41:39 pm
after my trades I am 12-7-11 so not too bad I should be able to cover it
Title: Re: The BYES
Post by: Mr.Craig on April 29, 2014, 04:42:42 pm
If I don't decide to reverse my trades I'm on 10/8/12. Feel like that's alright.
Title: Re: The BYES
Post by: LF on April 29, 2014, 04:52:39 pm
Mine is currently 8/10/12
Very comfy with that and will probably stay that way after trades
Title: Re: The BYES
Post by: Toga on April 29, 2014, 05:04:22 pm
12/6/12 now for me... I'm thinking next week I will trade out some non-scoring blokes and maybe even some R8 premiums to avoid donuts this week.

Just a question regarding the byes, if you have say all of your defenders playing (which means two on the bench), are they added towards your best 18? or does it have to be strictly on-field players to count towards your 18?
Title: Re: The BYES
Post by: TomK on May 05, 2014, 06:30:38 pm
Yeah, has to be on field.

Ok cheers Tom.

Post by: Mr.Craig on May 06, 2014, 05:15:57 pm
9/9/12 after my Round 8 trades.

Ideally I'd like it to be 11/8/11 in Round 9 and 12/9/9 in Round 10 but that will be tricky.

I am so flowered in round 10.

I am so flowered in round 10.

All my Round 9 bye players are in the backs and mids. That won't end well.
Title: Re: The BYES
Post by: Mr.Craig on May 15, 2014, 01:13:51 am
Hoping team announcements don't bring any bad news because I only have 19 on field currently.

Best case scenario in Round 10 is 18. :-\
Title: Re: The BYES
Post by: Rusty00 on May 15, 2014, 08:57:10 am
Best case 21 this week although that relies on Fasolo being a late inclusion and Griffiths getting a recall which is unlikely.
Title: Re: The BYES
Post by: Ringo on May 15, 2014, 10:25:02 am
Really stuffed in Round 10 ATM only 15 available players in AF and will not get better with 2 trades.
Title: Re: The BYES
Post by: R.Griffen on May 19, 2014, 10:56:14 am
had a good bye structure at the end but having 20 players and then having KKol, Rocky out to bring me to 18 and then Zorko having a good bye structure hasn't helped me at all
Title: Re: The BYES

Current strategy is to load all my players on a barge and send them out to sea.
