CAN A change of clubs resurrect Shaun Higgins and Jarrad Waite and make them Fantasy heroes?
Higgins, after crossing from the Western Bulldogs, will start as a dual position player (DEF/FWD) priced at $430,000.
His body issues from 2013 are behind him and he could start finding the ball again with a new lease on life at the Kangaroos, which has already been reflected in his fitness and enthusiasm over the pre-season.
Waite (FWD) will start at $455,000 and will almost certainly play right off the bat if he stays fit.
Jack Ziebell (FWD/MID) averaged more than 84 points a game last season and will start 2015 with an added incentive for coaches - dual position player status.
Is this the year Brent Harvey (FWD/MID) comes off? The veteran is priced at $565,000 – but is he worth a look at that price given he is 36?
New draftee Sam Durdin (DEF/RUCK) is an intriguing option given his dual-position status and price of $252,000. The No.16 NAB AFL Draft selection from last year will likely get a taste of senior football but will need to add size to his frame before he becomes a regular contributor.
And, if you're looking for a midfield bargain, Daniel Wells (MID) is listed at just $356,000 – foot problems last year affected him and he's worth at look at such a short price given his experience.
Trent Dumont [MID, $120,000]: The South Australian midfielder is entering his second season, and while he hasn't appeared at senior level yet, his bargain price cannot be ignored. With Levi Greenwood gone, there's a spot for an inside midfielder to come into the team and after his impressive 2014 in the VFL, a strong pre-season could mean it's Dumont.
Taylor Garner [FWD, $120,000]: The No.15 NAB AFL Draft selection from 2012 missed the entire 2014 season with hamstring troubles and is being carefully managed across summer. If he gets his body right, he could prove a bargain pick up at this price. Keep an eye on him.
Daniel Currie [RUCK, $247,000]: Is unlikely to get regular senior opportunities as long as Todd Goldstein is fit. In 2014, he played just the four games with the Roos preferring Ben Brown or Majak Daw as Goldstein's support. Matthew Kreuzer is a better ruck option at $244,000 if he keeps having an uninterrupted pre-season.
