Preseason 2023

#12 Most Relevant | Rowan Marshall

Nobody has questioned the fantasy potential of Rowan Marshall. Since his breakout season in 2019, we’ve known about his potential to be one of the best-scoring rucks in fantasy football. However, with the retirement of Paddy Ryder, the need and the opportunity is for Marshall to elevate himself to fulfil his potential.

#13 Most Relevant | Jordan Dawson

Jordan Dawson couldn’t have done much more for his new side, the Adelaide Crows, in 2022. He elevated his game and fantasy output to the elite level. The fantasy community is keen to jump on one of the best premium options in the backline for this coming season. 

#14 Most Relevant | Andrew Brayshaw

The breakout to the elite scoring tier for Andrew Brayshaw was always a question of when not if. And in 2022, he answered it for us. Now at 23 and stepping into his prime, Brayshaw is primed to deliver yet another strong fantasy AFL season.

#15 Most Relevant | Conor McKenna

The Brisbane Lions couldn’t have had a better offseason with the quality of players they added to their squad. One of the more unheralded but potentially most valuable is the recruitment of former Essendon defender Connor McKenna. The Irishman isn’t just a key for the Lions; he has huge relevance for fantasy coaches in 2023.

#16 Most Relevant | Connor Rozee

One of the most remarkable in-season fantasy football turnarounds came from Connor Rozee. From being in the dog house to winning the club’s best & fairest, the move into the midfield was sensational for both his confidence and his fantasy football output. The benefit of the slow scoring start is we have a forward premium with some inbuilt value. Are you on board in 2023?

#17 Most Relevant | Tom Mitchell

Tom Mitchell was one of the biggest names for the fantasy football community that moved clubs in the offseason. With a return to a lead midfield role at a new club, there is plenty of expectation that we could see some vintage scoring from the former Brownlow Medalist.

#18 Most Relevant | Stephen Coniglio

Rarely can a premium still be seen with significant value built into it’s price. Stephen Coniglio has that potential in 2023. But, as good as he has been, and can be, is Cogs the perfect player to start within our teams? Or should we be watching what happens under a new coaching regime?

#19 Most Relevant | Jack Sinclair

Jack Sinclair was the premium defender that nobody predicted would arrive in 2022. Was it an aberration? Or is this the new normal? Either way, Sinclair is incredibly relevant for fantasy football in 2023.

#20 Most Relevant | Callum Mills

There’s only a handful of players that, across all formats of fantasy footy, have averaged 110 or higher in the past two seasons; Callum Mills is one of them. Despite his high-scoring pedigree, his ownership is criminally low. The upside for brave coaches is he could create the separation you need to succeed in 2023.

#21 Most Relevant | Toby McLean

It’s been a long time since we’ve talked about Toby McLean and used the phrase ‘fantasy relevant.’ But after a strong score in his one game in the AFL finals, plus favourable pricing across the formats, he’s become a staple in plenty of preseason structures.
