AFL Teams – Round 7, 2011 – Bye, Bye, Byes, Byes baby those Multiple Byes


Its that time of the week! Time to check out the AFL Teams for Round 7, 2011 season.

Give me a “Whoo, Thank goodness those Multiple Byes are over! Whoo”! I don’t know about you, but the last of the Multiple byes (featuring Fremantle, Hawthorn and Geelong) hit my DreamTeam as much as we thought it would and was helped by the fact that normally reliable Fantasy players (like Goodes, Gibbs and Riewoldt just to name a few) also had shockers. Even serial Fantasy Captain Dane Swan had a Barry Crocker when measured against his ultra high standards! But that is all over now (well to much later in the season) and now we should all be in trading season, I know I am!

So there is already news of possible downgrade targets becoming available. The Hawks have already announced that two of the players that coaches thought would be fantasy relevant this year would make their debuts this week. Nuggety defender, Paul Poupolo and speed machine Issac Smith will make their debut against Port Adelaide most likely replacing injured Cameron Bruce and Cyril Rioli. Do be careful, as I see Smith as a big chance to be the Sub in his debut (but could be wrong). The Western Bulldogs continue to have injury concerns with the news that star Fullback  Brian Lake,  is likely to be sent back to the VFL to gain some form and fitness. Higgins to miss again but should see the return of Daniel Giansiracusa and Ben Hudson.

The Crows still can take an injury trick with Phil Davis to miss most of the season with his Shoulder concerns. The Lions are likely to get the return of Josh Drummond but the big injury news is that the Dockers are hoping to get a lot of their injured players back in the next few weeks, and the biggest surprise is that they are saying that preseason star, Tendai Mzungu, could be the first back.

So we wait for all the teams to be named tonight. We do have a Monday game, so there will be some blind picks there. What changes are you seeing in your team as well as what are you doing in your fantasy side?


  • Thursday: No updates yet but you have time to check out the latest version of the Coaches Box AFL DreamTeam and SuperCoach podcast for round 7. I thought it was a great episode. The Live chatters like the initial segment where we discussed who we thought would be the 7-6-2-7 list of players that would be top in their position!
  • Thursday 11:45am: Essendon are saying that it is likely that Dustin Fletcher is likely to return for this weeks match.
  • Thursday 12:25pm: Hawthorn have confirmed that Bruce and Rioli will miss this week. No word if others out but I would suggest that Thomas Murphy will be close to being in the side.
  • Thursday 2pm: Ross Lewis is reporting that the Dockers are adding Broughton and Pearce to their squad for this weeks game.
  • Thursday 2:20pm: Being reported that Nathan Gordon will make his debut for the Swans this week.
  • Thursday 4:50pm: Most sides in. I am devasted that my man Suckling is missing with a knee injury!
  • Thursday 5:05pm: All teams in now.
  • Friday 1:30pm: Carlton have replaced Henderson in the squad with Brett Thorton and North have replaced Hansen with Round 1 sensation, Cameron Pedersen.
  • Friday 2pm: Hearing rumors that Thomas Murphy will be a late inclusion for the Hawks tonight. No word on who might be out!
  • Friday 5:40pm: Sunday teams have been named. Just waiting on the final line-ups for Monday Night Football. Hibberd out for the Bombers is a surprise to a lot of Fantasy Coaches.
  • Saturday 5pm: Final Monday Night Footy teams in for the Saints v the Blues
  • Monday 4pm: Rumor has it that Leigh Montagna could be missing tonights game for the Saints.
