Get them in: Ruckman Braydon Preuss had 17 disposals and 64 hitouts for Casey. Corey Maynard picked up 24 disposals himself and laid 13 tackles, while Jay Kennedy Harris had 23 and booted three goals. 

Under the pump: Down back, Harrison Petty isn't a lock, and Tim Smith was quiet in the loss to Brisbane.

Medical room: The Demons will be desperately hoping Max Gawn overcomes a rolled left ankle. Jake Lever is dealing with bone bruising in his reconstructed left knee.

Verdict: If Lever is fit, he takes Petty's spot. Preuss replaces Gawn if the dual All Australian is ruled out.
