Suppose i should give this another look.

So with 16 min qtrs does that effectively make all the premos overpriced?

One I prepared earlier ... open to any thoughts!

Laird, Daniel, Doc, Roberton, BZT, Starcevich (Brander, Watson)

Macrae, Dunk, Merrett, Danger, Oliver, Rowell, Green, Pickett (Robertson, Sharp, Budarick)

Grundy, Naismith (Williams)

Whitfield, Dusty, Trac, Smith, Taylor, Rankine (Georgiades, Mahony)

$271k in the bank to upgrade any questionable rookies!

Trades will be reduced to 22 for the season. We appreciate that you choose to play AFL Dream Team for the added challenge and strategy elements that limited trades bring to the table. As such, we are adjusting accordingly for the reduced season.

Bonus trades may become available. With the uncertainty around the season and upcoming fixtures, we may add additional bonus trades and trade periods - if, for example - there is an extended break at any point and mini-drafts take place to top up lists; matches are being played in greater frequency; or there are instances where teams play mid-week, resulting in teams playing twice in a single round. We will remain agile and adapt to changing conditions, and provide you ample heads-up if any changes are coming up. The 2020 rule book is yet to be completed.

SCORING, PRICE CHANGES, PROJECTIONS, BREAKEVENS - QUICK FAQ

What will the impact be on player scoring with reduced, 16 minute (plus time on) quarters?
The short answer is, we are entering uncharted and unprecedented territory and we simply don’t know. Naturally, with less match time, we expect lower scores.

With players scoring less than expected, does that mean we can expect all of our premiums to drop in price after 2 matches?
The short answer is no. Price changes will be normalised across the entire playing list and relative to each other. For every price that goes down, another one goes up. You can continue to (largely) apply your usual strategies around cash generation.

What’s the impact on player price changes when they change after 2 rounds?
As we will be using a score based on an average that the payer was initially priced at for the 2nd round change, we expect price changes may be somewhat subdued after 2 rounds, to what you would have seen previously after 3 rounds. This may be more apparent for rookies. The impact and difference is expected to be minimal, however, and return to business-as-usual after 3 rounds.

What about breakevens?
We expect that we will be able to provide fairly accurate breakevens post Round 1.

Score and price change projections?
This is where it might get a bit tricky. While they will naturally sort themselves out over time, we will actively monitor the impact of player scoring based on reduced match time and tweak accordingly, as quickly as we possibly can. Again, we are entering into a lot of unknowns - but be assured that we will review and update as more data comes to hand.

I noticed that Assistant Coach is still providing projected data for the rest of the season on player profiles. Are these correct?
Probably not. At this stage, the AFL has only confirmed that the first 4 rounds will proceed as fixtured, and even then it is subject to change with the ever-evolving situation. We will retain as much data as possible, as much of it remains useful in your planning. We will update all fixture data as it is made available. In reality, this may happen or change on a week-to-week basis.

Anyone got any theories on how to tackle this game this year? I think IDIG's idea that the expensive players are well overpriced seems accurate? None of y 800k plus guys have cracked the ton yet...

Is Gawn worth keeping in this format?
