Reeling from the Yeo news! Was happy with my team for the first time in weeks too! Can anyone please tell me a bit more about W Day? Sitting at 7% ownership but I’d never really looked at him too much.
52% cbas and 88 sc from 68% tog in the practice match, probably a 100sc game there in normal minutes.
Seems like he will be right up there in their centre bounce midfield rotation switching between there and half back. Also become somewhat of a big body, 191cm and 85kg and I think it was Brad Johnson commenting on Fox Footy that he looks very comfortable with the rigours of inside midfield work. Hes said in interviews that he wants to play midfield

His injury history cant be ignored, but for what its worth I've switched Yeo to him

I would imagine Jones knocking out 70s would make him a pretty successful pick. Can someone smarter than me tell me what Jones would be priced at after 6 of weeks scoring 70s?
I can't tell you that, but I did plug in Jones scores from his last 5 years as a defender to see how it would work out. I can't recall the exact numbers, but 3 out of 5 were a 150k profit success, 1 was an OK 130k or there abouts, and 1 was a fail at only 100k profit. They all have some up and down scores so be prepared for a roller coaster.

Is it worth playing Cowan onfield this week, so I can downgrade Day to Chesser on the bench? Then upgrade Setterfeld to a premium?

What would I lose from a Day to a Cowan to gain from a Setterfield to a premium like Kelly/Steele?

From the Dons lineup, do we think Ridley plays freely or more accountable? Considering dropping Dawson for him

Surely after seeing how his unpressured ball use opened Geelong up all night other coaches are going to make Nick Daicos accountable right?
Or is EVERYONE on him for a brownlow win (coaches included), and we let him waddle around for another 23 games doing whatever the hell he likes?

He looks like a tempting swap for Stewart (as does Doc) but surely everyone can't be that silly.

He was swapping between midfield and halfback, basically going where he pleased, which could throw tagging plans somewhat?

If he's in the guts you play your midfield tagger but then he moves to the flank and your tagger is suddenly a defensive half forward. Meanwhile Pendlebury, Mitchell and Adams are still coal-facing in traffic.
