2016 AFL Season Forecast


The 2015 AFL Season is done and dusted. The premiers have been crowned and the off-season is well and truly underway. A record amount of players crossed clubs during the Trade Period, including an unprecedented amount of draft picks used during the NAB AFL National Draft.

With all 18 teams now back at training and working hard to improve in 2016, next season shapes as a competitive race towards finals.

Once again, the Footy Prophet team has been busy reviewing each club’s off-season changes and has the unenviable task of looking into the crystal ball and predicting where they believe each club will finish come September 2016. We’ll review the possible Risers & Sliders then attempt to predict what the ladder will look like at the conclusion of the home-and-away part of the 2016 Premiership Season.

Catch every team and every prediction right here.


Preview by: Sam Kimber

Adelaide added much needed run and carry to their line-up this offseason, with the likes of Paul Seedsman, Curtly Hampton and Troy Menzel likely to push for early selection in the best 22. Highly rate coach Don Pyke comes from West Coast, and will be looking to instill the philosophy of “taking the game on” into the players.

The loss of Dangerfield will hurt their midfield, and all eyes will be on Brad Crouch – should he be able to string an injury-free season together. Adelaide may have their ready-made Dangerfield replacement in Crouch, but time will tell. The Crows face a tough draw due to their top-6 2015 finish, and their season could be made – or broken – in the first eight rounds. Expect a season similar to 2015, with Adelaide in the mix for the lower rungs of the top 8.

Predicted Finish: 7th – 11th

    I think the dockers will fished maybe 3rd or 7th I think the dockers will have a good year but beyond that the dockers need a main gold to is to be at our best but the recruiting in the draft was very low dockers put less 10 years for players and dockers don’t do it enough but the will do ok
