Round two teams are beginning to drop, kicking off with team sheets for Thursday nights clash between the Crows and the Tigers.
Adelaide has regained captain Taylor Walker (Fwd $568,000) who returns from injury, whilst Wayne Milera (Mid/Fwd $426,000) also receives a call-up for the crows. Making way for these two are Richard Douglas (Mid $544,000) who is set to serve his one-match suspension and Curtly Hampton (Mid $430,000) who misses with a groin complaint.
For the reigning premiers, Bachar Houli (Def $637,000) returns in place of Nick Vlastuin (Def $452,000) in an otherwise unchanged starting lineup.
Make sure you have your Crows and Tigers players sorted, as after the rolling lockout begins they won’t be able to be traded!
North Melbourne v St. Kilda
Squads for both North and the Saints remain unchanged following last weeks matches.
Carlton v Gold Coast
For the Suns, Aaron Hall (Mid $690,000) returns from injury whilst Matt Rosa (Mid $530,000) has been omitted from the side. Popular preseason option Cameron O’Shea (Def 231,000) has been called up by the blues for his first game of the season.
Collingwood v Greater Western Sydney
Tom Scully (Mid $576,000) returns from an injury layoff much to the delight of the Giants, starting from the bench. For the Pies, Mason Cox (Ruc/Fwd $406,000) is out serving his suspension, whilst Josh Smith (Def $557,000) is sidelined through injury. Coming in for the duo are Callum Brown (Mid/Fwd $285,000) and Matthew Scharenberg (Def $548,000).
Fremantle v Essendon
The Dockers have gone ahead and announced their third and fourth debutants for the opening two games of this season, blooding last years number five draft pick Adam Cerra (Mid $262,000) and Mitch Crowden (Fwd/Mid $170,000). Stephan Hill (Mid $553,000) also returns for the Dockers clash with Essendon. Essendon has announced an unchanged lineup, most importantly for Fantasy coaches holding Zach Merrett (Mid $769,000) who has overcome his concussion sustained last week against Adelaide.
Brisbane v Melbourne
Brisbane regain Rhys Matthieson (Mid/Fwd $506,00) with Tom Bell (Fwd $416,000) making way. Following their narrow loss last week, the Dees have announced an unchanged starting lineup.
Western Bulldogs v West Coast Eagles
Ed Richards (Def $240,000) has been called up for his AFL debut by the Bulldogs. He is joined by Tom Boyd (Ruck $451,000) and Mitch Wallis (Mid/Fwd $526,000) who replace the injured Tom Liberatore (Mid $469,000), Hayden Crozier (Fwd $447,000) and Fletcher Roberts (Def $273,000). West Coast has announced the debut of exciting small forward Willie Rioli (Fwd $170,000).
Sydney v Port Adelaide
Leading the ins is none other than Dan Hannebery (Mid $665,000) who is named on the Sunday extended bench. Port have regained Robbie Gray (Fwd $572,000) after serving his one-match ban following a head high hit in the JLT series.
Geelong v Hawthorn
Arguably the biggest in of the round is Patrick Dangerfield (Mid $849,000) who returns from a minor hamstring strain. Danger has been named as a follower and with only 12.34% ownership, still proves to be somewhat of a POD for fantasy coaches.
