Locks, Loomers & Learners

The Wiz throws up some names for your watchlist as we head towards the pre-season matches.

This is a guide to every team’s players that are either: Locked – the players you can pick and start in your team and leave for the rest of the year, Looming – The players who have shown the potential to increase their fantasy numbers enough to justify starting with them (Risky) & Learners – The rookie priced picks who look destined to play at AFL level & could return good fantasy numbers.

    No love for Coffield from the Saints? Seems he’s training with the mid group rather than the backs which isn’t good for game time, but surely he gets a gig at some point, right?
    Same with O’Brien from Carlton?

    Pretty ordinary list to be honest. Holes everywhere.

        Grundy and Krezuer the top 2 at their position last year aren’t considered locks, neither are guys like Murphy and Gola, yet supposedly guys like Hanners, Higgins, Dahl, Steven are locks to be in your team all year.

          You aren’t going to lock in Grundy with his role change & Cox partnership. You aren’t going to lock in Kreuzer at that price.

    Poor article.
    Mutch is injured.
    Stefan Martin not mentioned.
    No Grundy.
    No mention of Devon Smith or Jake Stringer.
    No Menegola.
    No Joel Selwood.
    No Pearce Hanley.
    No Wingard.
    No Yeo probably the funniest of the lot.
    No Redden.
