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.
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.
Is the arrival of Zaine Cordy to St Kilda among the least fantasy relevant moves this offseason?
The preseason is the time to look at multiple strategies and possibilities. Jade Gresham might not be for everyone in the preseason, but he could be the perfect squad selection for those needing a stepping stone in the forward line.
It was no surprise to see a club pick up Luke Dunstan as an unrestricted free agent. But is Melbourne a good fit for him?
After sharing the ruck role in 2020, Rowan Marshall has gained one of the most helpful DPP’s in the game. Will you be starting the St Kilda star in your squad?
In 2020 Jack Steele went from being a tagger to becoming one of the most versatile and complete midfielders in the AFL. With longer quarters, can we see his scoring go up yet another gear?
Earlier today the AFL relocated the clash between St Kilda and Port Adelaide. The game will now take place a week later at Marvel Stadium. For fantasy football coaches this now provides a massive change to how we navigate the multi bye rounds.
A nice tune up for the Saints and Hawks in a nostalgic battle at Moorabbin that saw St.Kilda get up by 21 points in a match that was fairly entertaining albeit lacking in intensity.
He was one of the surprise packet premiums of 2017, but an irregular heartbeat has derailed his football career up til now. Thankfully he’s got the medical all-clear and presents fantasy coaches a real value selection.
