Don’t fret coaches, even if you had a rough first round, there is still plenty of time to get back on the right track.
Here at Zero Hanger, we’ve decided to compile a list of those who are “must haves” for round two.
Patrick Dangerfield (GEEL|MID|$716,900)
If Danger isn’t your captain for this week, go ahead and right your wrong this instant and come back to us. Done? Alright, let’s carry on. Last time he played North Melbourne he finished with 48(!) disposals, 13 marks, and two goals. All that added up to a SuperCoach score of 229. Enough said.
Todd Goldstein (NM|RUC|$588,400)
The big man in the middle for North had a solid round one, but is primed for a big score this week. Coming up against a Geelong side who are yet to have a clear cut number one ruckman, Goldstein will surely look to be aggressive. He also averages 127 over his past three outings against the Cats.
Josh J. Kennedy (WCE|FWD|$532,200)
Don’t expect seven goals each week, but Kennedy will deliver you consistent high scores. This week he comes up against the Saints, who may struggle to keep him quiet. Last time he played them he scored 140, and the time before that it was 105. One thing to be wary with though is the following week the Eagles play the Tigers, a side which Kennedy has notoriously struggled against in the past.
Dyson Heppell (ESS|MID|$513,300)
The Essendon captain had a massive week in round one, scoring 152. He is not only the leader of the club, but also the leader of the midfield. Brisbane haven’t always been his favourite side to play against, but there doesn’t appear to be anyone who will be able to go head-to-head with him.
Robert Murphy (WB|DEF|$392,300)
One of those mid-priced players that you’re normally told to be wary of. However, coming into a huge game versus Sydney, the Dogs will look to their leader for inspiration, something that Murphy can deliver in spades. He averages just over 100 against the Swans in his past three outings and could be an important cog in your back six.
