Prediction for top scoring player

Rids | Jackson Macrae

MJ | Josh Kelly. Be honest, your not surprised to see me say this!

Jimmy | Sam Walsh

Fox | Zach Merrett

Tim | Lachie Neale

Ben | Josh Kelly

Lewy | Jackson Macrae

Rainman | Jackson Macrae. Less interchanges and longer quarters means he exploits his amazing tank and I see the dogs on the improve so whether it be inside or outside, I see him being able to get on the end of some monster scores and he is super consistent on top of that. A big year coming for Jack Mac

The Midprice player that fires

Rids | Dom Tyson

MJ | Rory Sloane. The Crows inspirational leader will put his side on his back and wind back the clock.

Jimmy | Josh Daicos

Fox | Caleb Serong

Tim | Rory Sloane

Ben | Dom Tyson

Lewy | Matt Rowell

Rainman | A bit left field but Tyler Brown will work his way into the starting roations for the pies. He reminds me so much of a young Pendles, and his poise and time will see him bumping his average to mod 90s. A significant jump from where he is priced.

The Midprice player that is a bust

Rids | Dyson Heppell

MJ | Tom Green. History is against him. Rare that a second year player delivers to premium levels.

Jimmy | James Rowbottom

Fox | Dyson Heppell

Tim | Jackson Hately

Ben | Brayden Sier

Lewy | Brayden Sier

Rainman | His team mate Brayden Sier. His pace will be found out in a faster game style and he is not a great 2 way runner. This will be found out and he will find himself making way for the more agile Tyler Brown.

Cash Cow you need to start with

Rids | Tom Powell

MJ | Tom Powell. Don’t get cute. Just pick him.

Jimmy | Riley Collier Dawkins

Fox | Tom Powell (Macrae not far behind)

Tim | Tom Powell

Ben | Tom Powell

Lewy | Alex Scott

Rainman | You could hide a footy in the middle the simpson desert and this kid would find it. North will want to expose him to as much senior footy as possible and he will get plenty of it. Don’t overthink it.

My 2021 Big Call Is…

Rids | Lachie Neale not to be in the top 10 averaging mids for DT and AF in 2021

MJ | Patrick Cripps won’t be in the top 15 ranked midfielders across all formats

Jimmy | No Western Bulldogs Midfielder will average over 105 in DreamTeam or AFLFantasy

Fox | Patrick Cripps to get forward dpp in 2022 and Rocky to spend more time high forward

Tim | Taranto to jump back over 110 (AF/DT)

Ben | Taranto is the forgotten man

Lewy | Neale’s AFLFantasy average drops +14.5 points. I believe last year was more of an outlier than a sign of things to come. Great footballer but the planets aligned for Neale in 2020 and I don’t think it’s repeatable.

Rainman | Josh Kennedy to turn back the cloak and average over 115 in Supercoach in the first 5 rounds before age catches up to him and he finishes the year averaging in the 90s
