In the meantime we’ll be updating all the news and rumours here, so if you’ve heard something on the grapevine feel free to tweet at me (Oh by the way I’m Ollie, hi, nice to meet you!) or use #AFLFantasy and I’ll find it eventually!

Kade Simpson (DEF, $686,000) is back in, reverse those trades! Jack Macrae (MID, $817,000) is also back but with a breakeven near 200 I wouldn’t be jumping on just yet. Toby Greene (FWD, $643,000) falls into the same boat, watch and wait for him to find some form before considering. Jake Waterman (FWD, $346,000) is back for the Eagles but coaches should look to move him on ASAP as his price is on the slide. Isaac Heeney (FWD, $630,000) returns after missing one game with a concussion, I would wait a week on him as well, if not two. Finally, we have some new rookies this week. Colin O’Riordan (DEF, $170,000) scored 169 Fantasy points in the NEAFL last week, and Alex Morgan (DEF, $170,00) has had some strong form in the VFL.
Of the outs, Logan Austin (DEF, $408,000) and Andrew Brayshaw (MID, $466,000) are injured and should be moved out of your side. And an annoying blow for some coaches that targeted him as a POD, Marcus Bontempelli (MID, $587,000) is out after an appendix surgery.
