Lance Franklin & Dan Menzel are in doubt for Round 1, both won’t play in the JLT series which could further provide an interrupted Sydney line-up early in the season.
“They’re running, they’re not yet training.. we’re not sure they’ll be right for Round 1.. to be honest they’ll play when they’re ready.. they won’t play the JLT Series” John Longmire on Lance Franklin & Dan Menzel via @1116sen.

Nick Blakely might not be ready for action early in the season, a decent showing in the JLT Series could change the current landscape.
“His training so far has been limited.. he’s still getting some size about him.. I wouldn’t be surprised if he plays a bit of senior footy this year, but we’ve also taken the view we need to get him strong & developed” John Longmire on Nick Blakey via @1116sen.
Callum Mills appears likely for an increase in midfield usage this season, although suited to a half back role Sydney look likely to make the move this season.
“We would like to have Callum (Mills) play midfield” John Longmire via @1116sen.

“We’re hopeful he’ll be available for the start of the season” Ken Hinkley on Ollie Wines via @1116sen.
Tom Rockliff could be viable option in a starting midfield if Wines is delayed at the start of the season.

There appears to be no concern for Brad Crouch playing Round 1 at this stage, he is back in full training after missing the entire 2018 season with OP.
