Preseason 2023

Practice Match Review: West Coast Vs Adelaide

In warm conditions, the Crows finished off their pre-season in style with a commanding win over the Eagles. With the scoreboard blown out early, the sting was gone out from the game but there was still plenty of fantasy take aways.

Practice Match Review: Sydney Vs Carlton

All the talk in this match will be about one man, but the reality, there’s a plethora of takeaways that the fantasy community should be getting beyond Errol Gulden. From cows to premiums and everything in between, this match will be one of the most relevant from the weekend.

Practice Match Review: St Kilda Vs Essendon 

This was a crucial game for fantasy coaches. We had plenty of premiums and cash cows on show, and by the end of the game, a much clearer picture had been painted. Here’s my review of the St Kilda and Essendon practice match.

Practice Match Review: Fremantle Vs Port Adelaide

Fremantle and Port Adelaide battled it out at Fremantle Oval on Thursday night in conditions which had sunshine, rain, and the Fremantle Doctor pumping out some serious wind. As always, these factors need to be considered when trying to draw conclusions from players scores.

Practice Match Review: Brisbane Vs Geelong

On a beautiful Thursday evening in Ipswich, the reigning premiers Geelong took on the Lions at Brighton Homes Arena. We’ve got plenty of fantasy-relevant names to discuss, so let’s check out my game review.

Do you have a parachute plan?

Have you spent months agonising over your starting squad? Has your team seen hundreds of changes and iterations of it’s structure? As we near round one, the focus must evolve from just the starting squad to what happens in your team post-round one. And for that reason, you need a parachute plan.

But for now, here are the players I believe are in the mix for the number one pick for a brand new keeper league.
