    I’m wondering whether i should use Rory Sloane or Jackson Hately on my team. Also what do you think about Dunkley. Could someone help please.

      Roll with both. Should increase cash for upgradres while scoring 80 plus each game. Dunkley is my f1 until i dont like what i see.

      Can’t trust Dunkley until there’s some form of confirmation that he’s a CB regular, otherwise (and in all likelihood), Marshal will be sticking as my F1 as he’s more consistent. Would pick Hately as has more room for growth and unlike Sloane seems more durable and less prone to tags. Rather than Sloane try get someone like Serong/Taranto etc.

      Sloane & Hately both likely starters for me, so much upside. Don’t forget just a couple seasons back where Sloane started on fire averaging 130ish over the first 10 or so games. Dunkley I’m also backing to be mainly in the guts, dogs nearly lost him during the trade period due to not playing him there and fought to keep him so you would expect they play him in the mid rotation as much as they can.

    I’m impressed you guys can talk about the least fantasy relevant team in the comp for over 15 minutes. The second least fantasy relevant side Nth Melb should produce way more value with rookies this season. Only possible value Tigers I can see are Bolton, Short and Prestia.

    Interesting that Dusty starts at centre bounces over 3/4s of the time but remains a forward. Don’t get me wrong, I agree he should be DPP as he swings forward and plays as a pure forward better and more often than any mid, just shows CD put a bit more thought into positions than where people line up. Thanks for the content chaps, Nank and Prestia both are food for thought, especially if both enter the season injury free and firing for basically the first time in yellow and black.
