Pretty much universally this was an appalling round with many coaches failing to even make 2000 (myself included). Making Dangerfield captain was my undoing.

You should definitely start considering your bye-round structure for any trades you make, and keep an eye on your rookies break-evens.

Defenders

Jack Crisp replaces Zac Jones after his 58 against the Lions. Apart from that the Top 8 Defenders hasn’t changed a great deal. I’m expecting Lachie Whitfield to be available this weekend.

Midfielders

Matt Crouch and Marcus Bontemelli are in after a good last round. Stephen Coniglio (while still and excellent pick) fell out of the top 10 based on season average.

Rucks

This is the order most coaches (including me) are expecting for the rest of the year.

Forwards

Popular trade target, Brad Ebert, was concussed on 31 and is in doubt this week. Matt Taberner reflected Fremantle’s fortunes by only scored 57. These players made way for Jeremy Cameron and a surprise in Mitch Robinson who has been quietly sneaking up after a couple of excellent weeks.
