Priceless Projections

The Ideal Fantasy Side (for AFL Dream Team)

Who are the top dreamers of 2013?
We have well and truly begun upgrade season. Something around this time of year which I consider to be a major help for me choosing my upgrade targets is having a projections list. A list of players in their positions whom I consider to be the best players to have by seasons end. Without further ado, I give you the first Priceless Projections. Just a bit of house keeping as well, I will have a post up every Monday morning by 10.
So all you fantasy nuts will know when to check in...

The Backmen
The Must Have of the Backline in 2013
Goddard- proven performer, everyone should have him and if you don't get on ASAP. Very good durability and one of the only backs capable of averaging 105+!
Heppell- has broken out as predicted! Will be great for a 95+ average, has a very good inside and outside game, great durability as well.
Gibbs- will average 90+ and continually be a dependable option. Strong performer most weeks and that's more than you can ask from most backs this year.
Hanley- has broken out this season. Watch for the tag but most backs seem to be susceptible. Can go massive and one who'll be firmly in the top 6 by seasons end.
Hibberd- another to have broken out big time! Michael has been dominant this year. I don't see the tag coming soon either due to Essendon having a large array of guns in differing positions. Get on!
Birchall- Has been annoying last few weeks but the proof was in his start to the season. Ultra durable and will be a great value buy very soon.

The Next Bracket Options...

Scotland, Enright, Dixon, Duffield, Ibbotson, Enright, Stanley, Hartlett, Waters

The Midfield Men
The Son of God is at it again in 2013!

GAJ- no explanation needed, will be the best fantasy man of 2013, and best player regardless of the stats.
Swan- the fantasy pig. Watch Buckley though, he's been playing our beloved as a small forward. Let the pig rack them up BUCKS!
Pendles- easy 110+ man, safe as houses. Good durability and just churning out another solid year.
Cotchin- went big in the second half of last year, and will again. Should average 110+ once he gets over all his minor ailments.
Watson- another midfielder that performs weak in weak out. Susceptible to the tag on the rare occasion, but those moments are few and far between, getting to maximum form recently as well.
Boyd- Watch him go from strength to strength in the second half of the year. Showed what he could do on Saturday. A genuine freak with great durability and a passion to play each week sees him avoid the rest
Jack- read this
Barlow- it may well prove to be an early call, but I'm prepared to make it. Michael Barlow is back ladies and gentlemen! 105+ average from here on is extremely possible and likely. It'll be discussed in a

The Next Bracket Options...
Montagna, Stanton, Dangerfield, Kornes, S Thomspon, Deledio, S.Selwood, J.Selwood, Mitchell

 The Ruckmen

He's Back!

Cox- The best ruck in the competition by far. Will have a few big games later on as the Eagles hit form!
Nic Nat- The next best option. Already gone back to back hundreds, had a predicted breakout before his groin troubles, and seems to be well and truly over that due to West Coast's slow rehab approach. Enjoy this star as he shoots you up the rankings!

The Next Bracket Options... 
Goldstein, McEvoy, Roughead, Leuneberger

                                                                       The Forwards

Johnson, the must have if you're to be a contender in 2013!

- Lock, load, throw away the key and enjoy the ride. His skills are beyond ridiculous. Watch and marvel as he averages 110+!
Rockliff- Good strong option, will be up and down but will have a 95+ average which you can bank on.
Cloke- I'm calling it, big second half of the season coming up for this man. Got a good run and in form, if the Pies can click, watch him average 100+!
Voldt- All about whether he slows or not. Been the pick of the season thus far. Playing like the god which we'd seen in previous seasons. Would love to be enjoying this ride. His standard deviation is amazing as well!
Martin- Started to do what we all suspected he could. Other than the odd low, we have seen most of his scores as an 80+ with the odd BANG score. Could set a month on fire very soon. If he can continually hit his peak form, he'll be in the SJ bracket.
Goodes- He's back. Been playing a midfield role from the Hawks game onwards. When he's in that type of form (as seen on Friday), they'd be crazy to take him out of the engine room. Watch him shine in the second half of the season!

The Next Bracket Options...
 Bartel, Stokes, Chapman, Buddy, Lewis, JJK
