MARSH3 Fantasy analysis, rookie watch – Ep. 333

PODCAST: The final nine pre-season games of the weekend are reviewed.

The final weekend of the Marsh Community Series has just finished leaving Roy, Calvin and Warnie with more questions than what they started with. There looks to be a major lack of rookies on the horizon to play this year and some of the players locked after impressive performances in the first Marsh game weren’t quite as prolific. The Traders chat through all nine games to help you wade through the massive number of stats and information gathered throughout the long weekend.

      Definitely the second option. To much risk with Petracca and Walsh

      Tough. Toss of a coin. I’m not a fan of Dusty and I’m a Dees supporter, so I’d go 1. Barring injury, Whitfield is also one of the most likely players to be rolling 22 every single week. But I also don’t like Walsh. Definitely could go 105, but could also go 90, which wouldn’t be worth it. Smith and Kelly should be good.

    Tim English or Sauce Jacobs?

      Easy. Sauce. English had his score inflated by kicking 2 goals and rucking against Westhoff for half the game. Sauce probably had a few more marks than normal, but is also ~$60k cheaper than English. Even for draft I’d go Sauce first easily (but I have been wrong before).

    I joined a classic league with work they have a stupid rule that you have to have 1 player from each team to start the season minus one team you get to nominate that you don’t have to have someone from. You also have to end the season with atleast one player from each team minus your nominated team.
    I am thinking of picking north melbourne as my team i don’t need someone from but not sure.
    Any thoughts ?

      Quit the league, sounds like a waste of time.

      Wow, this sounds too difficult. It’s bad enough trying to sort out the bye structure, let alone this.

    Crisp or Laird?

      I had Laird, but switched to Crisp, although I’ve now jumped to Smith as he looks like he’ll continue as more of a winger (with the extra $$ allowing for better on field rookies).

        Funny… I had Lloyd, then switched to Crisp, and now I’m tossing up between Crisp and Smith. The extra 80K could come in handy.

      There’s a few rookies ahead of Hately plus the plethora of GWS midfield guns can’t see him getting a regular role…

    Hey Traders, I listen to every minute of the podcast downloaded and played on my MP3 player.. The very thought of shortening the podcast absolutely disgusts me..
