First wave of DPPs – Ep. 129
Robbie Gray has been awarded DPP as well as 23 others. Roy, Calvin and Warnie discuss the lot.
Every six rounds, the number crunchers at Champion Data work with the team at Fantasy HQ to adjust positions of players to reflect their roles in 2017.
Where they line up, gather possessions and their heat maps all go into the mix to award players with dual position status ahead of round six, 12 and 18.
In the first round of changes, 24 players have had a position added.
Robbie Gray has regained the MID/FWD status that he has held across most of his years. Mitch Robinson and Michael Barlow are other midfielders to pick up dual positioning and could be among the best of the forwards available for the rest of the season.
Popular cash cows Andy Otten and Dan Houston have added FWD and DEF status making the duo share the swingman link of DEF/FWD. This may prove to become very handy when trading around the bye rounds.
Draft coaches who selected Brandon Ellis and Cameron Guthrie will have some consolation for this slow start to the year with the ability to throw them in defence.
On this week’s podcast, Roy, Calvin and Warnie discuss each DPP adjustment in detail, together with exclusive numbers from Champion Data.
