TBH half the Champion Data stats are awful.
.....but even something like Disposal Efficiency is a bit fu**y.
Which NM players are fantasy relevant this year? Personally, I've so far got Hall, Chom & TT in my draft SC squad.
Tossing up between Hall's upside and Lloyd's consistency, but Hall feels like a player who could really get away from you in the first month if you don't have him.
Chom because I think he'll play when available so should be an acceptable cash cow and useful for the R/F cover and loophole link.
TT is obvious. Will brain it this year. M/F DPP makes it an easy decision.
Others that could be worth considering are WiPhi (I reckon he'll come on this year and outscore his starting price, but that price is a bit awkward for a cash cow and he's not going to rack up mid keeper points), LDU (breakout is on the cards, one for the watchlist to upgrade to), Jy (could genuinely be a top 10 mid but is probably more an AF/DT than SC option), Perez (handy cash cow if he gets on the park), LMac (keep an eye on his role, has some runs of good scoring in the past), Polec (price has been driven down by the last couple of seasons, but even if he gets back to his old self is probably more stepping-stone than keeper in the mids)
As for the premos.I try to do an early post on the North rookies available each year.
IMO we wont have as many playing this year if we dont have another injury plague.
Defence (most available spots for rookie of any line.)

Hayden - A massive unit fully developed AFL body. Wont score enough to be relevant.
Perez - Currently finishing up his rehab for a knee he did 2021 pre season. Back in full training after xmas. 50% chance for round 1.
McGuiness - 197cm skinny key back, great kick. Cover for Mckay, Corr and Walker. Might get games with injuries. 0% chance for round 1.
Palker - Played really well in the VFL late last year but couldn't force his way into the team. great kick hbf/wing 10% chance for round 1.
Archer - Training the house down. mid sized defender. 0% chance for round 1.
Bergman - 65kg 188cm. HBF/wing/HF great kick way to skinny for round 1 0% chance.

Horne. 100% chance for round 1. Plenty has been said already.
Lazzaro - Had no holidays trained flat out right through. Noticeably bigger. Wing most likely so wont be relevant IMO. 30% chance round 1.
Goater - Lightening quick. Earmarked to play defence. Good intercept mark. 30% chance of playing round 1.

Comben - Crazy competitive. Tall forward. Great VFL form late last year. I don't see how he fits in the team 10% chance to play round 1.
Edwards - To skinny for round 1 imo r/f 0% chance for round 1

Xerri - If Goldy gets injured he may be an option but he just wont make the team otherwise. 0% chance
Ford - Great young player but priced out of relevancy. 40% chance
Phoenix Spicer - Came in last year as a midget. Got a game late in the year. Has put on size. Wing/HF 0% chance.
Curtis - Medium forward who kicks goals, great pressure. There may be a spot in the team for his type round 1. 30% chance.
Anyways hope this helps peeps.
Yeah that's a pretty good summary. I haven't seriously considered JHF at his starting price - I expect he'll see a lot less volume of touches than Daicos and be more of an impact player, which likely won't result in enough cash gain. I'd be on Goater if he gets games. Hopefully (from a selfish SC POV) he'll come on later when we need downgrade options.I did this about a month ago on the rookies.
As for the premos.
Hall and JZ will average similar. I would expect JZ to drop off with age. Hall I expect to improve on last year.
Tarryn is a lock, there are not many better forward premos you would expect to play 20 games.
Jy needs to clean up his disposal a little bit to be SC relevant.
LDU needs more consistency. Hopefully he improves this year.
I think if Corr is playing he will eat into JZ's intercept points.Yeah that's a pretty good summary.

I think JZ scores 15-20 points less per game than Hall. Came back to earth a bit last year as the game plan settled and another rebound option came in alongside him last year.
Agreed re Jy. Too many silly frees against and inconsistent disposal hold him back a bit in SC. Wouldn't want him to change how he plays in the real thing tho.
Goater vs Perez?
or do we play both?
