Seasons almost done and there's going to be changes for next year. In my opinion this will happen with a few, if anyone has ideas post them

LOSE DPP

Zac Merrett (MID)
Jimmy Bartel (DEF)
Mitch Robinson (MID)
Michael Barlow (MID)
Marcus Adams (DEF)
Daniel Rich (MID)


Gain DPP

Lachie Hunter (DEF/MID)
Luke Hodge (DEF/MID)
Jack Martin (DEF/MID)
Nick Riewodlt (MID/FWD)
Leigh Montagna (DEF/MID) Changed from fwd

R Gray - MID/FWD
Jacko - DEF/RUCK
Westhoff - FWD/RUCK
Hartlett - MID/DEF
Broadbent - MID/DEF
Impey - DEF/FWD
Ryder - RUCK/FWD

would love to see Chad get Mid/Fwd, but seems unlikely
reckon we will see Robbie get DPP next year as well!

From my team, DPP gained (not convinced Lachie Hunter will get it) should be:

Tom Boyd to become a RUC/FWD
Caleb Daniel to become a MID/FWD
The Bont!!! to become a MID/FWD :D

Conversely, players who should lose DPP (Marcus Adams already mentioned):

Jordan Roughead to lose his DEF status
Matthew Suckling to lose his FWD status
Bailey Williams to lose his MID status
Jed Adcock & Declan Hamilton delisted :eek:

You could argue Tom Liberatore and Mitch Wallis have kicked enough goals to gain FWD status too :)

What will the banned Essendon players be valued at? Some solid picks in hurley, heppell and hibberd.
I reckon Essendon players are a dicey prospect next year. Could break a lot of teams. If Heppell and Hurley get discounts they might be worth a look, Heppell more so than Hurley, who can go missing. I'm not touching Hibberd. Watson... who knows?

ZMerrett might end up being overpriced after a great 2016 but more mid competition might limit his opportunity next year.

Zaharakis is interesting. A lot of people will go off him after his back end to this season, but he won't be copping a tag next year.

even without copping the tag and having the others in the side, Zaharakis' highest average in a season is 91 (2011), and hasnt averaged over 90 in any other season (bar 2011 and 2013)

Who else will be tagged?

It's the Rich v Rockliff theory

Yeah I won't be taking him next year. I will watch with some interest though.

I'd think Heppell and Merrett both ahead of Zaka. Possible he might get tagged because people know he can't handle it I guess.
