AFL Teams 2017: Round 14

5:00pm Friday 23/06/2017

Sunday extended bench selections are in. Carnage continues. Jack Steele (Mid/Fwd $504,000) didnt make the cut.
Gary Ablett (Mid $676,000) out. Nat Fyfe (Mid $488,000) out. Kade Kolodjashnij (Def $488,000) out. Josh Kelly (Mid $660,000) out.
On the rookie side of things Zac Fisher (Mid/fwd $214,000) out. McKenzie Willis (Def/Mid $189,000) didn’t make the cut.

Only small mercy is Joshua Deluca (Mid/Fwd $150,000) and Jordan Cunico (Mid/Fwd $156,000) gives us a downgrade options, as well as Sean Darcy (Ruck $176,000) who we already knew would play.

Friday Updates

6:25pm Thursday 22/06/2017

Remaining weekend teams are in! We have a new debut in Alex Witherden (Def/Mid $206,000) and another to keep an eye on is Joshua Deluca (Mid/Fwd $150,000) but do check sunday extended bench selections, however Sean Darcy (Ruck $176,000) who will be freos primary ruck this week at least. Jasper Pittard (Def $453,000) is back, and we finally see the return of Max Gawn (Ruck $588,000). You have to sweat over extended bench selections if you have either of Jack Steele (Mid/Fwd $504,000), Touk Miller (Mid/Fwd $422,000) or Jarrod Harbrow (Def $490,000 )
Bit of carnage in the outs with Michael Barlow (Broken Leg), Aaron Hall (Hamstring), Zak Jones (Suspension) and a few rookie omissions with Matthew Scharenberg (Omitted), Harry Perryman (Omitted) and an injured Tom Williamson (Back).

Remaining weekend teams announced from ~6:25pm tonight. Darcy Macpherson (Fwd $290,000) has been upgraded for an unlucky Michael Barlow (Mid/Fwd $546,000) whose broken leg looks like putting him out for the rest of the season.

Shags’ Watchlist

beech
Good rookies are hard to find this time in the season, so Jonathon Beech (Fwd $171,000) comes at a good time. He’s already become a bit of a cult figure at crows, and his debut was outstanding with a 72, the mature age rookie looks ready made for AFL. If you haven’t already grabbed him, this is the week to do so.

Shags’ Watchlist

lloyd
For those who already have him, Jake Lloyd (Def/Mid $509,000) has been a revelation this year. And now thanks to a score of 2 due to a concussion a few weeks ago, he comes nicely priced and will be traded in by many this week. With a BE of 110, you could hold 1 more week if you wanted, but 110 is well within his range this year.

Shags’ Watchlist

sidey
At 2.27% ownership, Steele Sidebottom (Mid $618,000) is a massive POD. He has a 5 round average of 121.8, and some of those scores have been huge. There have been a couple of games this season where he has gone missing which might put off some, but if you wanted a player to be unique each week he looks a great option. He also has the greatest name in AFL History.

Shags’ Watchlist

with
Alex Witherden (Mid/Def $206,000) gives us a much needed defender rookie downgrade option, albeit a tad pricey for a rookie. Averaging 76 from 8 games in the NEAFL, isnt huge, but its solid.

Shags’ Watchlist

libba
Maybe some time in the wilderness did Tom Liberatore (Mid $415,000) some good, because his first game back he smashes out a solid 109. He is super cheap if you think that form can continue, however he has played some shockers to get that low and get dropped in the first place. Definitely enough to watch for 1 more match, and if he tonnes again you have to consider.

Shags’ Watchlist

gawn
How could my watchlist player for this match be anyone else, one of the most anticipated player returns I can recall in AFL Fantasy.
Everyone should be watching to see how Max Gawn (Ruck $588,000) goes on his return, and with a massive BE of 176 due to a injury affected 32, his price be very nice in a couple of weeks.

OUTS: B.Grey (hamstring), J.Griffin (calf), C.Sutcliffe

Shags’ Watchlist

luca
If he makes the Sunday extended bench selections, Josh Deluca (Mid/fwd $150,000) could be the $150k rookie we all want to get. Averaging averaging 23 disposals, six tackles and 4 inside 50s in the WAFL he is the sort of player that could score well in the AFL.

Shags’ Watchlist

simmo
Overshadowed by fellow teammate Sam Docherty this year, still doesnt mean Veteran Kade Simpson (Def/Mid $548,000) shouldnt be finishing out our backlines with a slot. His 137 last week after a little slow period indicates he could be back to big scores, and a couple of 70 scores recently mean his price is a bit under what his output can be.

Shags’ Watchlist

Nroo
Fantasy Royalty Nick Riewoldt (Fwd $525,000) has had an up and down injury affected year this year. He was one of the mst expensive forwards at start of the year, but has dropped to an affordable price and could be well under his highest possible output. Nroo often finishes seasons strong. If you think he can do the same from now, its not a bad time to jump on.
