The week leading up to this year's Dreamtime at the 'G has the feeling of a grand final preparation, according to Essendon defender Courtenay Dempsey.

The annual clash is one of the biggest fixtures on the AFL calendar and Dempsey says his side is embracing the hype around Saturday night's encounter against Richmond.

"We've got to look at it as if we make it a grand final ... there's a lot that teams go through that week," Dempsey said.
