Waiting in the wings: Preuss pushes AFL case, Ryder return threatens Hayes, Owens, Hobbs, Erasmus & McComb impress

GWS ruckman Braydon Preuss leads the way in terms of AFL Fantasy and SuperCoach relevance from the weekend’s VFL action, with a dominant display pushing him up for an AFL game.

Bargain-priced Preuss (AF $367k SC $204k RUCK) had 41 hitouts along with 21 possessions and three tackles in GWS’s win over Port Melbourne.

Paddy Ryder (AF $627k SC $455k RUCK) pressed his case for a seniors call-up, which may impact the well-owned Jack Hayes (AF $319k SC $102k F/R), with 11 disposals and 26 hitouts for Sandringham. Mitch Owens (AF $223k SC $117k MID) did well with 20 possessions after being dropped.

Potential debutants to impress were Essendon’s Ben Hobbs (AF $266k SC $153k MID), Fremantle’s Neil Erasmus (AF $272k SC $166k MID) and Robbie McComb (AF $190k SC $102k MID) from the Western Bulldogs.

Kaine Baldwin (AF $194k SC $123k FWD) also kicked three goals after being dropped from Essendon’s Round 1 side.
