    Shaun Grigg

    Outlook

    Grigg grew frustrated at a lack of opportunities at Carlton despite being impressive whenever he played. So similar to Houli it's actually scary. Silky and prolific left footer who seemingly were victims of their egomaniac coaches at the selection table than any apparent lack of footballing ability.

    Grigg has been prolific, though perhaps a little handball happy, throughout his career and like Houli should be in the best 22 for a Richmond side that lacks players capable of accumulating quality touches. Grigg may or may not get enough of a discount this season to justify looking at him, but he will probably score very well this year for Richmond as he finally gets a chance to show what he can do.

    FFC Verdict

    Watch for his role and spot in side as well as his starting price. If he is cheap enough he could average in the 90s which probably means he misses out in most teams, but still worth considering.

    Watch for reasons to pick him but at this point, probably too risky.

    A real tough one Grigg. Over at Richmond now you'd expect the opportunities. Just one of those players where you can see the reasons why (but also a couple why nots) selecting him might not be such a bad idea. Yet you err with caution and disregard him and then more than likely he does really well and becomes one of those 'if only' players. But still doesn't really matter as practically nobody had him anyway. All that said I will more than likely be disregarding him . Will be interesting to see his starting price however.

    Yeah can't see him getting any discount which I think makes him a little too risky, I've always come away impressed when he has played and if he was either a FWD or BACK I would seriously think about it but just can't see the value as a midfielder because best case I can't see him being a keeper and at his price he would need to be!

    Not sure if he played the Nab game Bailz. Don't think he did. Still though, doubt he'd be on many people's radars. Too awkwardly priced for a MID only selection

    Selected for this up coming game, don't think there is any justification behind picking him at this time still. Richmond training has been really secretive so far!

    Has retired, effective immediately, due to ongoing knee injury.

    If only you got extra fantasy points from kicking the ball into the Etihad roof. Surprised his career was as long as it was.
