Welcome back for another week of team sheets, this week we have some frustrating omissions that will require some nifty coaching to successfully navigate without copping a dreaded doughnut. Lets tackle all the key INs and OUTS for round seven.
Leading our list of key OUTs for the week is Essendon forward Matt Guelfi (Fwd $283,000). Coming into this round, Guelfi has an ownership sitting just below 20%. After establishing himself with scores of 64, 72 and 73, his above average points scoring for a rookie will be missed. Fellow rookie, David Mirra (Def $259,000) has also been omitted this week. Mirra had proven to be consistent over the course of his three games for the hawks, and his breakeven is sitting at a very healthy 2 whilst he spends some time in the twos. Breakout Saints midfielder Blake Acres (Mid/Fwd $600,000) has been rested for the week, after his quietest fantasy outing for the year, managing on 69 points against the hawks. Draft relevant players Michael Barlow, Jeremy Cameron and Tom Lynch have been named out for this week of footy. Fremantle will be without their forward line barometer Michael Walters (Mid/Fwd $579,000) who looks to be out for 2-3 weeks with a damaged knee ligament.
Over to our list of INs for this week, we kick off with Giants utility Lachlan Keefe (Def/Fwd $170,000) who comes in for the injured Cameron. Making their respective debuts this week for the suns are Charlie Ballard (Fwd/Mid $188,000) and Brayden Crossley (Ruck $170,000). For the Power, Patrick Ryder (Ruck $618,000) returns for his second game of the season after aggravating an existing achilles issue in the round one clash against the Dockers. Joining Paddy this week is polarising defender Jasper Pittard (Def $541,000) who may be an option after Ports bye if he can find some form. Carlton have recalled dynamic big man Matthew Kreuzer (Ruck $685,000) who returns from injury. The Roos have announced the return of Shaun Higgins (Mid $623,000) after successful surgery on his lip following a heavy head knock suffered against the Hawks. Rounding out our list today is Taylor Adams (Mid $702,000) who comes back in for the pies after missing the last three weeks. His form thus far this season has been indifferent, hopefully we can begin to see him return to the form which saw him become one of the most owned players last season.
As always, keep an eye out for Sunday teams as they drop and good luck to everyone this week. Post any questions below and kick off discussion posts, or feel free to contact me on twitter @JelmsDT.
