From my limited knowledge, and this is definitely not a bag Jetta comment, the fantasy points should not be used to relate to real life contributions.
    I guess what i'm saying is Lloyd had a good contribution for a new player but probably not worthy of a Rising Star nomination.

    It may also depend on how Tom plays as well. If Tom can get by okay on Friday, I agree, why risk Pyke.

    If Pyke were available, we most likely would have dropped Tom for Tippett. So it's just a bit of a downgrade in the ruck quality, but shouldn't have a major impact on the game if Tom can just compete like he did in the second half of the Brisbane game.

    We should have an advantage in the midfield with Mitchell, Shiels and Sewell all out injured. Nonetheless, Hawthorn deserve to be heavy favourites. The only way to beat them is to bring relentless pressure, as Geelong did. Tippett can also play a big role with Lake being out. It was a long time ago, but Tippett took Shoenmakers to the cleaners in the prelim v. Adelaide, and I can't see who else can take him.

    They've given them out for a lot less, I don't think there would be too much harumphing (beyond him being from Sydney/us picking him up from the academy) if he picked one up if there wasn't another stand out performance.
    I knew him as a gentle young man, I cannot say for sure the reasons for his decline
    We watched him fade before our very eyes, and years before his time

    He's not from the Academy. We picked him up with our 1st rookie draft pick. Followed by Xav Richards, Rampe, Dan Robinson (who is not far behind Lloyd) and Brandon Jack. Now that's what you call a rookie draft.

    Glad he showed what all the fuss was about with his reserves performances. He's made a good start to bringing that sort of form to AFL level.

    According to Super Coach points it's Langdon, Kennedy-Harris and then Lloyd.
    I FEEL THE NEED FOR SPEED!!!!!

    I know you're trying to win the silliest suggestion of the year award, but some others sheer weight of numbers has you well behind the pack...

    Don't want to risk one of our future stars. BUT.................................

    Seriously, ROK would be a viable option. He can become our No. 1 ruckman and get his well deserved 300 game send-off. He would be like a mini-Mummy and can run all day. Remember when Jason Blake, of similar stature, killed our duel ruck combo.
