Ahead of the preseason draft, clubs are required to submit the names of players they intend to include on their rookie lists. Delisted and out of contract players were also required, by November 23, to submit their names for the preseason draft.
With the first official list lodgement due at the end of October, several clubs have culled their lists to make room for new players gained during trade week and also at draft time. As of mid-October, the following clubs have made changes.

ANZAC Day holds a special place in the hearts of all Australians and was honored by the AFL in Round 5. Fremantle has a good ANZAC Day record, having won eight from thirteen "Len Hall" memorial games since entering the competition in 1994. Before the match, veterans paraded with a military band and an eternal flame was lit to pay respect to the fallen soldiers of Australia and New Zealand. As the lone bugler played the Last Post there was absolute silence in the crowd of thirty two thousand as each paused for one minute of remembrance. The Len Hall Game is named in honor of a member of the Western Australian 10th Light Horse Regiment, active during the Gallipoli campaign.
