Episode guide

1:00 – Former Giant Jackson Hately looks to be a midfield wonder at the Crows.

2:45 – How will Matt Crouch fare without his brother?

4:10 – A discount puts Rory Sloane right in the frame as a value pick.

5:30 – Backline gun Rory Laird is now listed as a DEF/MID. Does that midfield role continue?

7:00 – Wayne Milera is priced cheaper than what his likely output will be.

8:30 – At $196k, draftee James Rowe might be a must-have up forward.

    I expect Adelaide to be better in 2021. They certainly have some skilled players

    Thiughts on ROB as R1 with Preuss R2, risky going without Grundy/Gawn though

      Luke imy draft team has this combo. I see no issue with it, ROB finished season well and is at the right age for a ruckman with limited injury concern. Gawn and Grundy both may have injuries at any time and really price should drop. Grundy looked to really slow up at end of last year to me. Preuss is no brainer. IMO go for it

        so when i say injury gawn missed 4 games last year and gundy none, but to be honest last few rounds grundy looked lame.

      actually just checked last 6 rounds and ROB 94.2 had better average than both gawn 93 and grundy 83
