It has been a couple of months between podcasts and because footy never sleeps, The Traders found some time in their relaxing off-season to catch up and talk AFL Fantasy.

Mad Monday - Episode 153

It was 23 weeks ago that we all thought we had picked the best AFL Fantasy Classic possible team under the $11M salary cap or drafted the best team against our mates in Fantasy Draft. For most of us, we learned on the weekend that indeed, our Classic side wasn’t that great and it was the mate who nailed his Draft side and was first to hunt the free agents who won the league Grand Final. Selby Lee-Steere walks away as the champion of AFL Fantasy Classic for 2017 after his side, Moreira’s...

Two teams were knocked out of the Fantasy finals race on the weekend, two now have the week off and wait to see who they take on from this weekend’s do-or-die semi-finals. Almost every week coaches are faced with new challenges. Joel Selwood has been a highly sought after player in the last few weeks since dipping below $500,000. 64 per cent of the top 250 coaches own Geelong’s skipper and will be faced with a forced trade this week. Unfortunately for Selwood owners, his price is $466,000...

Fantasy coaches are reeling from the news that Patrick Dangerfield has been offered a one-week suspension from the Match Review Panel. The second most selected player in Fantasy Classic was cited for his rough conduct on Matthew Kreuzer on Saturday night. If he accepts the one-match ban with an early plea, down from two weeks, 56 per cent of coaches will be making a big call this week on what to do with the Brownlow Medallist. The Fantasy finals work in the same way that the AFL ones do....

The best 22 - Episode 143

Fantasy footy can be a guessing game. You can use the past to help you make decisions on what will happen in the future, but we don’t always have a crystal ball to predict what will happen this week or a few weeks down the track. That hasn’t stopped Roy putting together his best 22 for the last few rounds. The coach of destROY has looked at the top players per position and has made a call on who have been the best of late and who is likely to keep it going for the remaining five rounds. In...

On Monday, Hawthorn veteran Luke Hodge announced his retirement from AFL. He will play out the last seven rounds. This weekend’s match against the Cats will be Hodge’s 300th in what has been a career full of amazing highs. Four flags, a couple of Norm Smith Medals, multiple All-Australian nods and most importantly, a Fantasy footy staple of our sides for more than a decade. The former Hawthorn skipper has a career high of 159 Fantasy points scored against the Western Bulldogs in 2015. That...

Hello Mr Darcy - Episode 139

7/3/2017
More
The advice last week was to avoid picking 19-year-old Fremantle ruckman Sean Darcy despite an impressive 80 point game on debut. The issue, Aaron Sandilands would be back. Those ideas have now changed. A season ending hamstring injury to Aaron Sandilands and 114 Fantasy points thanks to 33 hitouts, 16 disposals, 7 tackles and a goal has made Darcy hot property this week. Darcy was taken at pick 38 in the 2016 National Draft and has been impressive in the WAFL averaging 29 hitouts and 77...

Last round was something incredible. Maybe we should have seen it coming on Thursday night. There were a few headaches at team selection with Suns Aaron Hall (hamstring) and Michael Barlow (leg) out as well as Matthew Scharenberg and David Myers being omitted. Then the Hawks causing an upset over the Crows. Friday came around and the term ‘carnage’ got a new definition. First it was Gary Ablett putting out of his 300th with a calf injury and his team mate Kade Kolodjashnij was withdrawn...

The bye rounds are in the rear vision mirror, but the road ahead isn’t clear. The most traded in player last week will be the most traded out for round 14 as Geelong’s Scott Selwood’s hamstring injury sees him ruled out of Sunday’s game against Fremantle. Up until the third quarter last Thursday night, “Scooter” was putting his hand up as the best mid-season mid-priced pick up of the year. On Saturday night, Michael Barlow broke his left fibula and the subsequent surgery will mean he has...

The final siren of the Dees v Pies game has just blown and we're straight into the studio talking Fantasy.

The highest averaging player in the competition, Tom Mitchell, is joined by Zach Merrett, Taylor Adams, Josh Kelly, Adam Treloar, Scott Pendlebury and Rory Sloane as guys going at over 110 per game while there are a few...

Every six rounds, the team at Champion Data run the numbers and award a group of players dual position status. They take into account where they line up on the ground, which parts of the ground they get their disposals and their role in the team. If this is significantly different to the single position they are already assigned, they add the new one and become DPPs (dual position players). Having DPPs in your squad allows extra flexibility in your line up and can help you out when...

They strike fear into Fantasy coaches across the land. The multi-bye rounds are here and they’re ready to wreak havoc on our teams. This weekend we experience the first of the multi-bye rounds. The MBRs – the shortened acronym means for more time to plan or panic – is the block of three rounds when up to six teams have a rest for a week. For most head-to-head leagues, like the players, you will get a rest as match ups are on hold and will resume in round 14. Coaches playing through these...
