Richmond AFL Fantasy preview 2022 – Ep. 470

PODCAST: It was a hard slog to find Tigers worth talking about.

Calvin thinks he’s been stitched up by having the Tigers as they had just one player who averaged more than 85 last season. Dustin Martin is the main man discussed but is he worth the risk despite his lower than usual price?

    Calvin where the mention of Daniel Rioli if he gets houli’s role in defense ?

    Such a bad team to do lets hope you don’t get them again next year.

      Yep, Rioli is the smokey to watch, went 78.5ave in his last 5 as they experimented with him off halfback, thats about 25pts above current price, more importantly he actually looked real good and there is no doubt he is a very talented player so if he gets the houli running rebound job there is no reason he cant push to mid 80s or better which at $450k odd starting is pretty tempting for a D4 mid price stepping stone or even long shot as a keeper.

        Rioli is 500k 🤮 had one good score everything else around 70. There is better options

        Rioli looked good off half back from a footy perspective but currently (could change with some preseason data) don’t see much in him fantasy wise especially if most are rolling with the likes of Sicily and Milera.

          Not saying he’s a lock but at $470k priced around 55ave with D/F DPP and after going at almost 80 last 5 potentially playing the only fantasy relevant role at Richmond which isn’t being Dusty and not coming off injury ie a knee reco. Well, he’s worth a look at least.

    Thoughts on Vlastuin? Season avg 76, last 5 at 92, last 3 at 101.

    Tiges supporter, would be a no for me. Vlastuin is potentially a gun mid but that’s not his role, once finals were gone I feel like Dimma played around with a few things (see rioli above) and also gave some others a bit of freedom to have fun which I reckon happened with Vlas and he’ll be back being one of the comps best mid sized defenders next year, if however you find him lining up on a wing or something pre season watch closely.

      Thx Squid. In my black book then, next to Wingard
