      @ cheers, I understand what you’re saying but picking forwards this year is a hell of a lot more difficult and bought up more then backman, I’ll try and do some for you if this helps.

      So I’ll start at 500 upwards on players I think are relevant

      555k Connor Blakely – won’t get Much of a run in the midfield, more off a back flank which could be good for him as he is a good link up player, in saying that I would not have thought too much through the midfield with the likes of Fyfe, Brayshaw, acres, Cerra, Serong, Bewley, acres, more then likely Aish, Bewley, acres & hill will share the wings, I think Blakely will be between high 70s and 80’s this year.

      Sam Docherty, $563K Lock, no write up needed.

      Wayne Milera 570k -looked good in his role, he will float between wing and back flank, talks of laird running off a wing this year as well but I think he will play a very fantasy friendly role this year, he is in my team and I expect an 80+ average from him he is cheap for that price. Started the year exectllent last year before getting injured, was even in Roy’s rolling 22 Talks early last year.

      Hunter Clark 574k- same as milera, plays a very fantasy friendly role. Will be interesting to see how Clark and roberton go in the same team but I expect both of them to go 80+, would probably wait until next Marsh game to see him as his 69 from 80+% time on ground doesn’t really jump out at me

      Dan Houston 596k- midfield alert here. Hinkley has already said he will be midfield & Marsh game showed that. He is currently my D1 with Docherty, milera & roberton I expect him to finish top 6 defender and I believe he can push a top 6 defender this year, lock and load there. 95 average I predict.

      Jordan Dawson 614k- played a very fantasy friendly role this week, tackled, marked & was the preferred user out of defence, was impressive, with Lloyd and mills to return we know Lloyd will take kick ins and Dawson may even be forced to push further up the ground. I think he will have a good year, won’t push top 6 but 80+ is on the cards.

      James Sicily 620k- yo-yo he is, with Patton coming to hawks that allows Sicily to not be a forward. He is I believe extremely under priced but god, how can you trust this man? He is capable of 100 every week but I believe he will be a yo-yo this year, if you’re prepared for a roller coaster, then be my guest. I’m not buying into him this year but I’ve been wrong before. 80 – 85 I think for him.

      Brodie Smith 646k – Adelaide loves the ball in his hands, he is a great player very good user of the footy. Had a great year last year & showed he can play a very nice fantasy friendly role, I believe he is a very good pick and I think can definitely push 90’s this year.

      Just a quick mention on others.

      Adam Cerra 451k- kid can play, 75+ on the cards for him, underpriced.

      Dylan roberton 327k- watch Marsh game 2 if he plays, if he gets through okay, lock and load. Extremely underpriced.

      Nathan Jones 546k- if he goes 80’s this year he will be underpriced and would be a good pick up. Keeping an eye on him.

      Hope this helps, not only you but everyone else aswell, I know not a lot of people will agree with this but everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

      Good luck 2020

    I thing I’m getting past this game. For the first time in many years, I’m thinking of giving it a miss.
    Convince me otherwise, but I think my time could be better spent doing other things.
