Set to miss at least a month with a stress injury to his foot, Rowan MARSHALL (STK, $557.2k) will miss Round 1 – I was so looking forward to starting him, ugh! Given he’s the 5th most expensive FWD option, you won’t need to move mountains to replace him with someone a touch more expensive or you can pocket some coin by dropping down to some equally viable options. So, who are we thinking?
On the same day as RoMo was struck down, we found out that Braydon PREUSS (GWS, $303.0k) required a shoulder surgery expected to rule him out for 4 – 5 months (probably 6+ given it’s GWS). The appeal of Preuss was his cheap price, allowing coaches to apportion the large savings elsewhere by omitting (most likely) one of G&G. Not only will those who had him have to replace Preuss, but a wrench will have been thrown into their structure. Do you go back to drawing board and re-think you structure or try to find a similarly priced option?
