Podcasters Keeper League Draft Results

  • Kaes

The Podcasters Keeper League Draft went down last Friday night and after dissecting everyone’s keeper list over the last couple weeks, I thought I better take the sledgehammer to their draft selections!

As always, there were a few surprises and a few steals and hopefully you can learn from our genius or even our mistakes!

Hoofa’s A Grade

I suggested that Heff would need to go for some defenders straight up and he had no hesitations taking Burton and Redman with his first two picks. Like many others, Heff is predicting a bounce back from Joel Selwood and from the weekend it looks like he got John Noble at a steal in Round 6. Handcuffed Grundy with Cameron nice and late and overall drafted a good mix of youth and experience. A draft well done for the flag favourite.


Even though my backs were my weakest spot, I just couldn’t resist taking my boy James Rowbottom with my first pick. That decision was vindicated on the weekend and it’s officially Rowbottom szn. I was happy to secure long term keeper Sydney Stack in my defence, along with the solid Hamish Hartlett. From then I went on a big of a forward run taking Miers, Simpkin, Cunningham and Brown who all have massive upside to me. From there I just focused on younger guys who were B22 and added a couple handcuffs for Jarrod Witts. I’m very happy with my mix and should be in finals contention again.

SouthernGrizzlies CP

James was potentially a little too swayed by the ‘live’ form of Jack Lukosius on Friday night and took him with his first pick but backed that up with two great ones in Rory Atkins and Adam Tomlinson. Bolton, Bailey and Flanders look like great early picks while I think he came home really well taking consistent players like Riewoldt, Hayes and the improving Schache. Like his squad a lot.

Extended Bench Matt

I thought Matt may try and target some forwards early in the draft but his first forward selection was Jack Darling in Round 7. He took Deven Robertson at Round 1 which is probably a little high IMO but he does look like a player. Jack Scrimshaw at Round 2 is also a bit of a stretch but adding the solid MacMillan, Robinson and Hewett gives his list nice depth. Alex Sexton at Round 20 could be a genuine steal if he can get fit and the Suns can kick some goals!

Psycho Oracle

Last year’s Premiers continued to add more experience to their squad and I think Archie had a great draft. After taking Noah Anderson in Round 1, he went down the oldies path with Smith, Mayne and Rampe. Getting Ceglar in Round 4, Sam Lloyd in Round 7 and even Jeremy Finlayson in Round 11 look great value picks. Every chance to feature in the finals again with his list.


Another guy who I thought might go hard on forwards early, Sam decided to lock in the two GWS young guns with his first two picks in Ash and Green. Snelling in Round 3 looks solid, while Newnes at Round 14 looks a steal. While his forward line still looks thin with Snelling at F4 and Elliott at F5, a team with Mitchell, Dunkley and Cripps will cause plenty of coaches nightmares.

Cam’s Potatoes

Despite being a couple deep on draft night, Cam did exceptionally well IMO. Rowell at 1 is no surprise and while Acres is out for a while, he looks class at Freo. Then Tucker, Baker and Langford with his next three was great drafting, especially on the back of their Marsh form and Cam’s desperate need for forwards. Jack Ross at Round 10 and Aaron Hall at Round 12 could be steals, while we can only assume Harley Bennell at Round 15 was a bad, bad mistake. Could the Potatoes be on the rise?


Dos’ inability to distinguish between time zones meant Assistant Coach Autopick took care of his first two selections in Suckling and McEvoy but after that he really steadied the ship. Battle, Narkle, Tarryn Thomas, Ward and Cumming all look like ripper picks, while getting Dan Butler at Round 13 and Rupert Wills at Round 18 are genuine steals. Could the self-proclaimed $1.10 flag favourite actually be onto something?

Is Dom, Is Good

Christian just couldn’t resist taking Hayden Young with his first pick, which is way too early but no harm was done with Brandon Ellis going in Round 2. Polec is a handy enough payer at Round 3 while Josh Caddy at Round 7 is great forward or mid back-up. Nic Nat will provide cover for Sean Darcy and the way Harry Morrison looked on the weekend, Round 13 is a steal and if CYE gets games at Brisbane, Round 14 will also be a bargain. It is a solid side that will only improve in the future.


Reilly O’Brien was a no-brainer for Zane with Pick 2 of the draft and adding guys like Fritsch and Gould will help his ageing list. James Aish at Round 6 is very nice and if Will Setterfield can continue his weekend’s form, Round 9 is a bargain for him too. A lot of unknowns with some of the kids he’s drafted but he’s looking long term and there is plenty of young talent there.
