    Thought De Goey may have made the forward line?

      5/6 of those blokes can, and have, gone huge on a consistent basis. IE, 110+ average over a whole season. Even phillips has averaged 95. De Goey has a LOT of catching up to do.

      Wow, got to ask Dan, you do understand the concept of this rolling 22 don’t you?

    Thanks Roy.
    No love for Mills? I have him higher than Doch…

      Yeah Mills a bit stiff

    Doc won’t be there for long.

    Bit of a surprise that Dusty has picked up Ruck eligibility! But more seriously, should guys under injury clouds like Sidebum, Titch and M.Crouch really be rolling 22?

    Surely Max’s average drops this year, just looking at the TOG% numbers? Last year’s average is an ADJUSTED average from games where he basically never left the field due to the shortened quarters; it’s not a “real” 124. He had 93% TOG last year compared to 85% in his previous best three years. So, just returning to his normal TOG% (which he’s going to, right?) would see him drop 12-14 points and be beneath Grundy on average.

    Everyone seems to be assuming he’s going to hold his highest average ever, but to me it seems clear that it’s going to drop, and that’s not even factoring in anything happening with Jackson. … I’m not crazy, right?

      Gawn is god… verses Meek, Flynn & Hunter first 3 if I’m not mistaken and has a god tier run. Based on this, we are hoping gawn starts really well and maintains this average

    • aflfantasyfreak

      March 16, 2021 at 7:55 pm

      100% agree here Dan. TOG decrease is a factor, Jackson is a factor and the speed of the game resulting in less stoppages and less marks for rucks are all factors. Gawn and Grundy will be number 1 and 2 but there is no value in picking them particularly Gawn. Way better ways to spend your coin early on. Gawn averages 110-115 this season in my opinion.

      Fair point but it’s not necessarily saying those picking him reckon he maintains his average, more so that his awesome early run gives him a really good chance to make it hard to grab him until later in the year. He’ll be a top 2 ruck, may as well start him from the off, saves having to get him later. It’s not like Grundy doesn’t have concerns either.

    • George

      March 16, 2021 at 8:56 pm

      It’s been mentioned by the traders a number of times. Look at his first three opponents

    • Scott

      March 16, 2021 at 8:58 pm

      With less rotations this year though I can see Gawn’s TOG staying in the low 90s. There’s no need for him to go off the ground.

      About Jackson, Gawn averaged 128 last year when they both played in the side so not sure there’s much cause for concern there. Jackson may see a slight uptake in responsibility this season but I can’t see it being anything significant.

    • TBoned

      The People’s Prince makes a very compelling argument for Gawn – I completely restructured my team for the Gawn Glint!

    Any idea where Dan Houston fits in? Did really good preseason and averaged almost identically to Jayden Short (.5 of a point higher) last year.

    • Matt

      March 16, 2021 at 6:26 pm

      Should be around the 85-95 range. IMO you’ve got Laird Lloyd Whitfield as your top 3 but i think there’s 10-15 guys that are capable of fighting for those last 3 spots. If you like Houston then I’ve got no good reason to discourage from picking him but I’ve gone with Docherty (past history and underpriced) and Daniel (Doggies high possession gamestyle) as my picks out of that bracket.

    Martin 😂😂😂 in for one week.

      Who takes Martin’s spot? Especially if he’s going around 100? I want in on this secret info you have.

      Also, Thanks Roy.

    Gawn, De Goey and Harmes
    or
    Grundy, Caldwell and Daniel

    Would love to hear peoples opinions ranking the rookie rucks this year, taking into consideration scoring AND job security… My opinion is
    1 Flynn
    2 Hunter
    3/4 Meek & Tracey
