Episode guide

1:00 – Early takeaways from the AAMI Community Series includes the rucks struggling and the running defenders dominating.

2:10 – Zac Williams‘ ownership is plummeting after being suspended for round one.

4:45 – The role is there for Paddy Dow, but can he score?

6:40 – Will Jack Higgins live up to his junior Fantasy scoring hype following his 107 point game.

9:30 – The top scorer of the AAMI Series was Jayden Short with 171.

12:00 – Are we jumping at shadows with Brodie Grundy‘s score? If his previous pre-season numbers are anything to go by, he’ll be fine.

14:30 – Lock in Tom Phillips even though he has some fellow midfielders coming back.

18:30 – Consider Ben McEvoy as a bargain DEF/RUC as he looks to regain the mantle as the Hawks’ No. 1 ruckman.

20:45 – Can Jordan Clark cement a position in the Cats’ 22? If so, lock and load.

24:00 – A shoulder injury stopped Nick Hind in his tracks, but he has a ball-winning role on the half-back flank.

28:00 – Tim Taranto reminded everyone he is 20 points under-priced.

31:30 – The Swans should be a happy hunting ground for rookie and Chad Warner at under-$200k could the forward we’re looking for.

33:00 – Port Adelaide players combined for 190 marks with the defenders racking up, including Dan Houston.

35:00 – Roy is keen on Orazio Fantasia at a bargain price.

39:40 – Michael Walters‘ injury good reason why to leave your Draft day until the latest possible moment.

44:30 – Bulldogs midfielders didn’t have any issue racking up the points.

46:00 – Any concerns with Max Gawn sharing the ruck duties with Luke Jackson?

48:30 – James Harmes‘ midfield role is there.

52:45 – Did we see enough from Matt Rowell to be confident on starting him?

55:00 – Is an under-priced Jarrod Witts an option in the ruck with so many other premium options under-performing?

    Just a quick Q regarding lockouts this year. Will it be a rolling lockout each game as per last year, or go back to previous years where pre-Friday night game was the main lockout (excluding any Thursday games)?

      People jumping off Zwill? 1 week suspension although not ideal doesn’t change that he will probably be a top 6 defender or that he is likely underpriced. Bringing him in as an upgrade down the track will probably mean paying an extra 150k. Planning on bringing him in in week 2 is also probably a crap idea as the first couple of weeks are always a scramble to get the rookies right.

    Have to say I’m heading back to more rooks and underpriced premiums based on some disappointing scores over the weekend.

    Thought on players such as Wil Powell and Oleg Markov? Seemed to have the right role but can’t quite decide.
