Lloyd recorded a season high of 119pts last week against Richmond, he will again be the main distributor out of defence for the Swans on Thursday night.
He is averaging 26.3 Disposals & 6.0 Marks this season, a ceiling game is in-play against an Essendon team that conceded a league worst 417.5 Disposals in Rounds 1 & 2 (Round 3: 326).
Ownership will likely be moderate to strong.
Zach Merrett has scored 100pts or more in all 3 games this season, he is averaging 111.3pts.
Merrett has been used at 74.0% of team centre bounces this season (Essendon Rank: 1), he should see high usage again in Round 3.
Merrett is the most expensive player on Thursday night, ownership is expected to be moderate.

With James Rowbottom still sidelined through injury the midfield usage for Chad Warner should remain strong, he was outstanding last week scoring 100pts.
Warner was used at 53.3% of centre bounces in Round 3, he has averaged 90.5pts in his last 2 games without Rowbottom.
Ownership will be extremely high, his salary is too low to pass up.
