I’m jumping in this week for Cam as he has some personal stuff to attend to so I know these aren’t big shoes to fill, but its still a job that needs to be done.
Lions v Pies
There was a lot of hype about this game but all for nothing as the Pies smashed the Lions off the park and the main injury concern Harris Andrews sitting the entire 4th qtr with his thigh iced up.
Prognosis: Minor hambone injury – 1-2 weeks
Relevant Waiver – Josh Walker should see improved scoring for the next couple of weeks
North v Bombers
Clean bill of health in this game, the only concern is North’s ability to be fantasy relevant.
Eagles v Port
In a wet game over in Perth the only concern was Sam Powell Pepper who had his calf iced up in the 4th qtr.
Prognosis: Just wanted to get out of the wet and use all the hot water before the other guys got in the shower.
Relevant Waiver: None
GWS v Freo
Not that he should be on any person’s list, but Phil Davis suffered a concussion.
Prognosis: Concussion – 1 week
Relevant Waiver: Take your pick. There are heaps of fantasy scorers better than Phi Davis
Demons v Saints
The only injury in this game is Melbourne’s pride.
Relevant Waiver: None, look to the 2020 season
Richmond v Sydney
No injuries to the players but John Longmire must be feeling the pinch.
Prognosis: Job security getting less and less secure
Relevant Waiver: None, perhaps win a game to relieve the pressure
Dogs v Blues
Prognosis: Go back and learn to coach and play players in position
Relevant Waiver: I wonder what Brett Ratten is doing these days?
Crows v Gold Coast
Wayne Milera went down with a nasty shoulder injury
Prognosis: AC joint 4-6 weeks
Relevant Waiver: David McKay to get a bump but better options out there
Hawks v Cats
With all the booing subsiding the only injury in this game was Brandan Partiff.
Prognosis: Quad injury – still awaiting scan results
Relevant Waiver: Dare I say it…..Cam Guthrie
