The Game

Hot and Cold: Round 16

We are back for another week and it was another huge week for most people. The stretch run is on and we are looking to make moves up the rankings and also up in our leagues.


We are back for another week and it was another huge week for most people. The stretch run is on and we are looking to make moves up the rankings and also up in our leagues.

In regards to some comments saying that some players in the cold section had good games, I’m just putting in players that are fantasy relevant as some players get like 20 points but have no fantasy relevance at all.

Also guys if there is any players I have missed that you would like to see on here. Let me know either on the comments or follow me on twitter @corka23 love some feedback and anything else you would like to see in the article.

Adelaide Crows

Who’s Hot: Sam Jacobs was massive, set an AFL record for hitouts (61) and scored a huge 122. Ricky Henderson stepped in the depleted Crows forward line with 120 points and 6 goals. Sloane (92), Thompson (90) and Dangerfield (89) were good without being great. Sam Shaw was solid with 74 after a few quiet games

Who’s Cold: Kurt Tippett was subbed again with 13 with concussion and may miss this week after a few head knocks in the past couple of weeks.

Carlton Blues

Who’s Hot:. Carrazzo (114) and Robinson (109) were once again fantastic but it was Chris Yarran who returned to his best with 94 and he is a very cheap option as a defender if he can maintain that for the rest of the season, if I had the trades I would probably take the risk.

Who’s Not:Kade Simpson had 46 and was subbed after being smashed by Sharrod Wellingham and his run of consecutive games is over and Andrew Walker only had the 63
