Dunkley and Rowell vs Rayner and Clarry vs Rioli and Walsh
Dunks 95-115
Rowell 80-105

Rayner 65-90
Clarry 110-125

Rioli 75-100
Walsh 110-130

Posting what I think the minimum and maximum these guys will average

Highest upside is probably Rowell and Dunkley who could both be genuine midfield premiums. Dunkley being a forward is a huge plus. The suns need Rowell to be elite he’ll have every chance to shine again this year imo

Rayner and Clarry my least favourite option due to the unknown of Rayner.

Rioli could be hall like this year. Not saying he goes 105+ but we saw how strong the gulls scored last year as mid priced forward starters. Ziebell impey hall Dale etc
Walsh is still getting better. The upside of that pick is that we still don’t know his ceiling. Guys like Steele and clarry are already at the 120+ level but I don’t think they’ll get to that 130+ god Garry Ablett level. Walsh might. He could be anything and like Macrae I think they’ll be the two best fantasy mids the next 5 years.

Flip of a coin between option A and C

Ridley or Short? Both work well with my Bye structure.
My 3 other defenders are Lloyd, Crisp & Dawson.

Clarry has the runs on the board and you know what you are going to get.

Touk has only had one SP year - can he back it up? He is one i'd rather watch and pick up later.
Thinking Clarry sc
Touk afl fantasy

Going to pick the guys I miss in one format into the other this year so I enjoy watching them

Interesting one.
Both depend on role to go 100+ IMO.
Short has no Houli to compete with any more, but now has Rioli.
Ridley would seem to have the higher ceiling. But he seems to only reach that ceiling with kick outs.
Ideally you watch the Ansett cup and check on there roles.
But right now I would take Ridley just.

Short only has one role...seagull mode, and I like it.

Yes, Lloyd & Hall at D1 & D2 and the salary cap.
I require validation on north picks.
I don't trust my own opinion of them.
Cheers mate.
rememeber that conversation we had last year.
When you wanted hall at 400k and I took Jezza for the same price.
Sliding doors moment that derailed my season.

Leaning slightly towards Whitfield and short but whitfields injury history concerns me
Do the extra trades mean we take more risks on guys like Whitfield and Dunkley?
If we are looking at safe 22 game type guys it would be short and Daniel. Ridley looks a good safe pick too but has had niggles both of the last two years. Whitfield and Sicily miss games every year. So need to weigh up those things vs the ceiling both provide

It’s like the forwards Dunkley is the clear number 1 option but depending on role it may be safer to go taranto who’s more likely to play 22 games.
Lots to think about over the next 2 months

I do indeed. You tried to convince me to go with Jezza over Hall. Thankfully I didn't listen. ;)
