This round will be hellish. Round 12 was supposed to be my best round but my team didn't make the most of it and now it will hurt for these next 2 weeks.
After making 2 downgrades to bring in Naish and Bewley this week, I will have 8 rookies on field. I hope par is around 1600 this week.
I reckon those fielding 20 this week will make heaps of ground

Good luck.

I’ll be happy with 1300 this week..17 on field. 8 rookies including 4 that will score under 40. Will end up scoring 350+ less than most teams and have another bad bye week to deal with next week with my 4 blues all having low breakevens.

Good news for you all is I’m not even going to bother watching this week. There’s zero hope.

Good luck all, especially those in the top 100.

Hahaha you will not get 1300, get off it. Every week you say that and still end up beating 80% of the comp.

Thanks for getting in early RnW. Meant to do it myself a day or so ago.
If Young is named I'll have 18 with him being one of four rookies on field (don't count Walsh as a rookie anymore).

The Rocky news is the reason I haven't bothered with him this year, despite being very tempted at times. And having said that, I'm seriously considering bringing in Fyfe this week. Can't afford Merrett unfortunately.

Fyfe's figures stack up pretty well, just got to cross everything he can get through the last 11 games unscathed. I'm usually risk averse, so this isn't a move I'd usually do, just got a feeling Fyfe could be in that top 8 mid bracket for the rest of the year..

I would have gone Fyfe over Rocky, but Rocky was such good value and was banging out some huge scores and looked like the old Rocky.

Those thinking of getting Merrett now should wait 4 weeks. After he scores 130+ v hawks, the bombers play eagles (hutchings), gws (de boer) and swans (Clarke and hewett) after this week. He will be ripe after round 16. Bombers have dream run.

You can't help but think that the decision on Rockliff was made easier from the hard surface of Optus Stadium.. If it is having such a significant impact on player's bodies (legs) and forcing clubs to be conservative when playing leg injury-prone players then surely something has to be done! The AFL can't be taken seriously if the surface of the 'top of the range' stadium is causing so many injuries and influencing selections.
