    I should probably fact check this, but it does worry me. Also with Ablett in the team now.

    I loveeeeee Menegola though.
    is he guaranteed first 22 with Ablett back?
    TEX WALKER. that is all.

    I think he is in the 22 but he's definitely not in the top 10. Would only take 2-3 poor games for him to get dropped, especially if Ryan/Fogarty are close to early debuts apparently.

    Cats did lose a few similarish players (Motlop / Lang) which help him. But yeah I''m steering clear.

    Nothing's guaranteed but he finished 6th in their B&F so they were obviously happy with what he gave them and he was their best midfielder outside of the Duncan, Selwood and Danger trio. The Ablett factor is certainly the issue that has me putting him on the upgrade targets list. His bye is the kicker.

    Re: Forward Premiums

    Just a word of warning for Billings enthusiasts. He has done a hammy and will miss at least the early preseason games. (AFL X and early JLT). Not a deal breaker but certainly an unfortunate hiccup in his preseason.

    Re: Forward Premiums

    Well that explains why he missed the 2nd half of the game as apparently happened in that.

    That's a line through him for me, too many other options to consider and he can become an upgrade target. Has had a few hamstring issues, iirc, in the past.

    Sometimes I feel like the DT Gods are saving me from myself with the preseason injuries.

    More details on the Billings injury :-

    http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-02-1...sidelines-star

    STAR St Kilda forward Jack Billings has been ruled out of AFLX after he pulled up with a hamstring issue at the club's match simulation in Sandringham last Friday.

    Billings completed a running session on Monday, without hitting top speed, in a sign the club is confident the injury is minor.

    St Kilda expects him to be on the sidelines for up to two weeks.

    He is expected to take part in the pre-season competition and the Saints have not ruled him out of their opening JLT Community Series clash against Carlton at Ikon Park on Wednesday, February 28.

    The 22-year-old played in only the first of the three 20-minute periods last Friday, covering the ground well and racking up plenty of disposals. He also booted a goal.

    Billings is set to spend more time in the midfield this year after a superb 2017 that was marred only by waywardness in front of goal (23.36).

    Heeney looks to be in awesome shape, he is the only forward premium that is a right now.

    If hasn't been said already, stay clear of Robbie Gray to start with as tempting his price might be. In an advertiser story it briefly said that he'll play mostly forward this season as he's trained with the forward line group.

    Also read today that he is in better shape this pre-season then he was last pre-season though. May only need a slight increase (SC) to be a great pick.

    Definitely can't expect any 110 heroics though.

    i think the absence of genuine top class forwards means he is still tempting.

    Re: Forward Premiums

    His bye is the biggest issue. If he has limited upside then he is a perfect upgrade candidate.

    He's worth picking regardless of the bye if he was going to play midfield and be a 105+ guy again. If he's a forward where he is historically a 85-100 guy then you can trade into him without paying any extra after his bye and have a very solid piece of bye management at hand.

    He'll also be playing as a small forward which massively increases the variance in his scoring, he had 7 games under 80, of which 4 were under 50 last year. That makes him dirt cheap if one of those happens in the first 8 rounds.

    The injury he had limited him for sure but the lack of midfield time was why he struggled in fantasy, it takes away a great deal of what he does. On top of which you could argue that adding Rockliff, Watts and Wingard being healthy will take away targets for him inside 50 as well.

    I still really like him but unless he's back in the midfield and a 110 guy I think the case to target as an upgrade is stronger than the starting case. Especially when there are so many other guys with huge upside potential available as well.

    Looks like Walter's will be running off the back of the square if freo's named line up is at all accurate
