The Teams Round 17 (From a Fantasy Perspective)

Obviously all fantasy players aren't relevant. Or are they?
If you aren't aware Stadium Fantasy Sport has made nearly every fantasy player relevant this year, with fantastic giveaways each and every match! The prizes on offer are fantastic for very little effort indeed. Anyway hope you enjoy as I provide the teams with a fantasy spin!

The Teams
Season goes from Bad to Worse for Buddy

North Melbourne
IN: S.McMahon , L.Thomas
OUT: M.Firrito, L.Greenwood

Greenwood is a big out for all those considering him, as he was showing good value. Lindsay Thomas is back as predicted, after a week out, expect him to shine.


Much of a muchness at the Blues. Nothing to report here, other than read my article on the best paying match of the round by Stadium HERE!

IN: W.Langford
OUT: S.Burgoyne (suspension)

Will Langford will make his debut for the Hawks. Watch him closely, has been on the list for what feels like a lifetime. Good option in Stadium, especially if he can avoid the vest!

Western Bulldogs
IN: J.Macrae
OUT: C.Smith (knee)

Macrae back in the side is only a positive. looks great and someone that we'll all have in the future I'd suspect. A shame that Clay has done his ACL, best of luck to him coming back.

Gold Coast
IN: M.Weller, A.Sexton
Out: T.Murphy, D.Swallow (knee)

 Dave Swallow is a big loss off the half back flank for the Suns. Expect Weller to attempt to take up the slack. Given he is value, if you back him in to produce ina similar vein to Swallow, he is a no brainer selection in Stadium Fantasy!

IN: T.Goldsack, C.Mooney
Out: C.Young (hamstring), J.Blair (calf)

Mooney a straight in for the hamstrung Young. Expect the young Irish men to begin in the evst, ruling him out from a Stadium point of view. Good to see Goldsack back, but expect him to take a while to find his feet!

IN: D.Brogan, T.Adams, A.Tomlinson, G.Ugle, M.Whiley, Z.Williams, T.Greene
Out: S.O'hAilpin, R.Palmer (foot), W.Hoskin-Elliott, D.Tyson, S.Edwards, A.Corr, J.O'Rourke

Wow look at that number of outs. Ludicrous! The list is quite irrelevant though, with maybe Tyson, O'hAilpin and WHE showing some sort of potential in Stadium. Shouldn't disrupt many fantasy teams nonetheless.

IN:  N.Lovett-Murray, L.Jetta, C.Dell'Olio, S.Crameri
OUT: J.Winderlich (soreness), B.Howlett, D.Zaharakis (back), T.Pears (rested)

Winderlich straight out after his massive game last week is a sad site. Howlett, Zaha and Pears are other major exclusions! Crameri and NLM are the only name inclusions. Shouldn't matter though, as they'll still account for the Giants easily!

IN: T.Simpkin, J.Webster, T.Curren
Out: J.Geary (leg), T.Milera, B.Murdoch

The Saints are certainly rebuilding! look at the pricing of Curren, as he may avoid the vest and be aworthy acquisition to any Stadium side.

Port Adelaide
IN: J.Westhoff, K.Mitchell, S.Colquhoun
Out: K.Cornes (suspended), T.Logan, M.Thomas

The Hoff is back from suspension and expect him to wreak havoc on the Saints backline. He'll be looking to repay everyone from Port who he let down. Kitchell is the likely sub, and whoever avoids it out of Kitchell and Colquhoun, get on in Stadium!

IN: J.Viney
OUT: D.Nicholson

Viney back for the Dees, which is a plus! Likely to start in the vest, so just watch out if you plan on picking him in Stadium Fantasy, or if you still have him on your bench in the other competitions.

IN: E. Yeo
OUT: J.Polkinghorne

Check to see whether Yeo gets the vest or not. If not, he might be in for a good day, especially at his price. consider for Stadium Fantasy!

The Sunday Teams

IN:In: S. Tuck, S.Lonergan, B.Houli
OUT: -

Houli the only certainty for that lot. Not much to report otherwise, check Friday sides for confirmations.

IN: P. Duffield, J.Hannath, J.Crichton, L.Neale, M.Taberner
OUT: M.Pavlich (suspended), H.Ballantyne (hamstring)

2 Major outs for the Dockers. Hannath will come straight in and take Pav's deep forward role. Neale is a likely type to fill in Ballantyne's small boots. Check back for finalised teams, but i think neale might be the sub if named!

IN: R.Tambling, I.Callinan, L.Thompson, M.Grigg, S.Kerridge
OUT: M.Jaensch, P.Dangerfield (shoulder)

Danger out will obviously hurt the Crows chances against the Geelong boys. Will be interesting to see final teams, if named, watch Mitch Grigg closely. Has a booming kick and has been doing well in the ressies! 

IN: J.Corey, C.Enright, M.Stokes, N.Vardy
OUT: S.Johnson (Suspension)

We all knew Stevie J was gone. Christensen still missing but otherwise, the inclusions are massive. Enright and Stokes the only certainties from that list to force their way back into the 22.

West Coast
IN: A.Selwood, S.Wellingham, L.Shuey, B.Wilson
OUT: A.Embley (suspended)

Sharrod is finally back. Expect him to be the sub. Otherwise watch for final teams, although all of those inclusions should be playing. Wilson is still good value in Stadium!

IN: M.Morton, H.Cunningham, X.Richards, D.Towers
OUT: B.McGlynn (suspended)

Towers is apparently some chance to debut! If named, expect him to be the sub, but nonetheless he might be a worthy acquisition in Stadium. Expect Morton to come straight in and play McGlynn's role.
