AFL Teams 2016: Round 18

False alarm, he is playing now

6:30pm Friday 22/07/2016

Sunday extended benches are out. Craig Bird (Mid/Fwd) is rested for the dons and Archie Smith (Ruck) is named emergency to the relief of Stef Martin owners.
To the few who still have him for whatever reason, Connor Menadue is omitted, and so is Jarrad Jansen for brissy.. Reece Conca (Mid/fwd) made the cut for the tiges.

6:30pm Thursday 21/07/2016

Teamsheets are out! Aaron Hall is out with a hamstring injury, Brett Deledio with a calf Michael Barlow with a shoulder giving us forward line woes, but Jimmy Bartel and Rory Laird is back to save many a defence, as well as another option in Matt Rosa, but we see veteran Jarrad McVeigh out with a groin injury. We also see Tom Liberatore back from injury whom some may have held.
We actually have a gluttony of new debuts with Jordan Foote (Mid. $125,000 AF $121,300 DT), Joshua Schoenfeld (Mid. $164,000 AF $121,300 DT), Shane Yarran (Fwd. $125,000 AF $121,300 DT), Aaron Francis (Mid/Def $221,000 AF $202,300 DT), and Archie Smith (Ruck $125,000 AF $121,300 DT).
Archie smith inclusion gives alarm bells for Stef Martin owners.

Shags’ Watchlist

sidebum
Steele Sidebottom (Mid. $478,000 be 86 AF $490,000 be 56 DT) had a bit of a mid season rough patch and is now sub $500k. After a 119 and 110 many may argue he has bottomed out nicely as a fallen premo.

jpk
Was a seemingly must have last couple of years, Josh P Kennedy (Mid. $536,000 be 88 AF $561,500 be 81 DT) has been mostly a non entity this year. Having fallen under peoples radars he is only owned by 4.08% in AF. Currently sitting on a 3 round average of 117.3, there are definite signs his DT relevancy is back.

Shags’ Watchlist

rosa
Matt Rosa (Def/Mid $351,000 be 115 AF $363,200 be 141 DT) is coming off an already injury affected score of 2. He comes into a suns lineup without a midfield, and even Hall is dropped. Surely this increases the likelihood of a decent output. He should be super cheap in a week or two with that high BE. Watch and learn.

Shags’ Watchlist

priddis
Matt Priddis (Mid $499,000 be 106 AF $519,600 be 106) has been mostly disappointing this year with an average of 99.3 being quite underwhelming. However a sub $500k Priddis with his output potential is always tempting. He is consistent.

Shags’ Watchlist

nick
WIth lots of forward premium options out many will be looking for a replacement. I cant go past St Nick, Nick Riewoldt (Fwd/Mid AF Fwd $522,000 be 116 AF $539,900 be 120 DT). he has been a little underdone since coming back from injury, but if underdone means high 90s then just imagine when he comes good again.

Shags’ Watchlist

jel
He’s been hiding in Dangerfields shadow a bit, but we cant deny Joel Selwood (Mid $532,000 be 94 AF $558,000 be 102 DT) is a superstar in his own right. His recent numbers are impressive, coming off a 128, has a 5 round average of 114 but is priced well below that. Definitely a solid option to slot into your midfield if you have space.

zorks
With carnage up forward with a few forwards out, you can’t go wrong with Dayne Zorko (Fwd/Mid $559,000 be 99 AF $591,100 be 123 DT) with a 3 round average of 122.7 and season average of 111.7 looks a sure bet to be top 6 forward.

Shags’ Watchlist

hodge
Possibly the only really relevant Dual position round 18 change, Luke Hodge (Def/Mid AF Mid DT $481,000 be 100 DT nope) who in previous season was a must have defender has finally been reinstated as a backman in Fantasy (ignore for DT). As such many will look to slot him in as a final defender upgrade.

Shags’ Watchlist

rgray
Robbie Gray (Fwd/mid $502,000 be 76 AF DT nope) has had a bit of an up and down season, but since he got DPP fwd status in Fantasy round 12 he has become more relevant, and with a few fwd injuries with a 3 round average of 114.7, is a great option to slot in your forward line. His price is reasonable and he has a great ceiling. Lets be honest too, he plays midfield.
