Would Oscar McInerney be any chance to retain DPP?
Had 6-odd games played more forward, remainder he rucked big minutes with only occasional rests FWD.
Would he scrape together the 35%?

The AFL are reportedly set to return to traditional 20-minute quarters in 2021.
The Age reporter Peter Ryan writes that, after playing 16-minute quarters during the COVID-19 impacted 2020 season, sources have suggested the league is keen to return to how the game was pre-pandemic in as many aspects as possible, including quarter length.

The report notes it is “most likely” the AFL executive recommends a return to 20-minute quarters in the 2021 season, with the league in the final stages of discussions with broadcasters and other key stakeholders.

Should bring those boosted fake premos back to the pack in prices pretty quickly.

I'll probably stick to the guns of 2018/19 and avoid all Dogs but Dunkley.

Mitchell will have extra time to get his 40+ again so he a lock.

Probably start Neale,Oliver,Mitchell,Dunkley and Rowell as my 5. Not so keen on Cripps as a starter with those shoulders.

If shoulders are an issue why would you be starting Rowell?
Even with good shoulders I don't think he will be a keeper. He had 1 exceptional and 1 very good game against teams coming to terms with hub life. Cripps in 2015 had 172 in rnd 3 and averaged 96 for the year.

Still don't know who will be top mids and Rowell is 445k for a M5 so that is ok if I am going to pay 730k for Neale, 664k for Oliver and 616k for Mitchell. Mitchell also had shoulder surgery but he plays different to Cripps who also gets thrown forward at times. Only want to carry 2 having surgery. Going to load up with probably 4 premo defenders in Ryan or Laird (If remains a mid), Whitfield, Stewart and Daniel. I'll pay up for Gawn aswell. Willing to back in Rowell who had his surgery in July so has extra recovery time to build up the strength.
4 back , 4 mids (maybe 5 with rowell) 2 Rucks and 3 fwds is 13-14 starters.
