Preliminary Finals - Episode 224
thetraders

It’s the penultimate round of the season, meaning AFL Fantasy coaches have their preliminary finals. No more second chances, the equation is simple; win and you’re into the Grand Final, lose and it’s time to book your end of season trip… or start planning for Fantasy in 2019. In the super-competitive Bacon Cup, Roy and Warnie will face-off this weekend to book a place in the big dance. With the Warne Dawgs having the edge over destROY in recent weeks, it will be interesting to see what moves are made. Warnie is keen to bring in Mitch Duncan to nullify one of Roy’s point of differences due to the Cats’ favourable match up. The boys run the numbers to see which teams have the best Fantasy match ups for the final two rounds of the season. Geelong take on Fremantle this weekend, the fourth easiest team to score points against and then Gold Coast in the Grand Final. Both games are at GMHBA Stadium making Gary Ablett, Patrick Dangerfield and Sam Menegola popular options to trade in. Some coaches want to go against the trends to find a point of difference. Some unique options are discussed for the underdogs in their leagues.

Semi Finals - Episode 222
thetraders

Round 20 was epic for many reasons. There were the incredibly close contests, the players making inspiring comebacks and controversy at every turn. For AFL Fantasy coaches, it was all about the qualifying and elimination finals. Continuing the trend of recent weeks, round 20 was a high scoring affair. The weekly winner, Anthony Crutchley, was able to rack up a whopping 2780 points with his team full of midfield beasts that saw half-a-dozen of his chargers score more than 130 points. Although Team Crutch dominated the round, the best possible 22 racked up an almighty score. If you nailed the highest point scorers per position, 3103 points would have been your round 20 total.

Luxury Trades - Episode 218
thetraders

Last year Tom Mitchell broke the record for the most Fantasy points scored in the season. He’s on track to beat that following his 187 on Sunday afternoon. With his price back to where it started and sights set on the next record, breaking Tom Rockliff’s 134.8 average from 2014, Mitchell is a set-and-forget captain week-to-week. While the Hawk’s form has been outstanding, he’s the most popular player in Fantasy Classic. Coaches are looking at other form players that could get them a leg up in the last round of head-to-head fixtures before Fantasy finals. There is always talk about finding a point of difference for your team to allow you to have an extra unique in your match-ups. Roy looks at his rolling best-22 players with some suggestions for each line if you’d like to take the unique route. As teams are getting set for the finals, many moves appear to be luxury as we use our allocated two trades per week. http://afl.com.au/fantasy

Round 18 DPPs - Episode 216
thetraders

Roy, Calvin and Warnie look across the relevance of the new DPPs. The boys question whether Dangerfield is a must-have as a forward considering round 17 was the first time this year he posted a score higher than his 2016/17 Fantasy average. Prioritising trades and which premiums are ripe for the picking with two weeks to go until finals.

Round 16 was a high scoring round. The weekly winner, Rick with his team The Gunners, notched up 2589 which included the late withdrawal of star defender Kade Simpson. Rick is now ranked 19th overall. Warnie was the top scorer of The Traders and he is extremely happy with efforts that has pushed him inside the top 500. There’s seven weeks to go and the race is on for the car… and a cap!

Stocktake - Episode 210
thetraders

Finally, the bye rounds are over and Fantasy coaches around the country are looking forward to ‘normal’ rounds of footy for the next nine weeks... with a sprinkling of Thursday night games. Following the three multi-bye rounds, coaches approached the challenging weeks with two things in mind; fielding 18 players each week and making their teams better without sideways trading. The Traders had that goal and, as a whole, they’ve achieved their aim with their nine trades. This year, Warnie is enjoying the most success of the trio. Prior to round 12, the Warne Dawgs were ranked at 2373rd and almost halved their ranking to 1203rd during the three-week stretch. Jack Macrae’s injury and Jack Billings’ omission were his only sideways trades, but the other seven were about moving on cash cows. His team is now down to one rookie, Tom Doedee, on the field with only a couple of underperformers he wishes to move on. If it wasn’t for a sub-1600 score this week, Roy would have played the byes to perfection. The coach of destROY took his team from 2730th to 1517th overall without trading one premium out of his squad. He is down to two rookies on field, including Bayley Fritsch who, in Roy’s words, isn’t going anywhere with his recent form. Staying strong with his trading philosophy has helped his recent rankings rise. It hasn’t been Calvin’s year. While his overall ranking has improved slightly, 9136th to 8780th, he has continued to be dealt an ordinary hand. Many of the rookies he took a punt on didn’t earn the desired cash and therefore his ability to upgrade players on his field across the byes was limited. Team Calvinator now has some MID/FWD links for extra flexibility within his squad and while he still has some rookies on field, things are looking up. Holding Billings could possibly see luck swing back in his favour if he remains on the wing. The boys take stock of their teams as they approach the five weeks before finals on this week’s episode of the Official AFL Fantasy podcast.
