Hardly Used - Episode 138
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 First it was Gary Ablett putting out of his 300th with a calf injury and his team mate Kade Kolodjashnij was withdrawn from Sunday's gam...

On Your Bike - Episode 137
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 played his last g...


Badbye - Episode 136
The final siren of the Dees v Pies game has just blown and we're straight into the studio talking Fantasy. Round 12 wasn't too bad from a coaches perspective with some decent scores coming out of our best 18. But we come up to round 13 where plenty of our stars are missing. 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 popular cows - l...

Second Wave Of DPPs - Episode 135
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 trading. During the we...

Byemageddon - Episode 134
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 or aiming to rank...


Titch The Official Pig - Episode 133
It's an honour that has only been bestowed upon two before him. Being crowned a "Pig" is not at all derogatory, it is a term of endearment from Fantasy coaches for players who go above and beyond. Those who greedily feast to bring their owners huge scores. Hawthorn's Tom Mitchell joins Dane Swan and Tom Rockliff in the Sty, a section of the hall-of-fame that houses those who produce incredible Fantasy feats. The two current Pigs, Swan and Rockliff, have been household names in the community and coaches ha...

Wounded Pig - Episode 132
Watching the Fantasy Pig Tom Rockliff go about his business at University of Tasmania Stadium on Saturday afternoon pleased The Traders. That was until the last three minutes of the game. 'Rocky' dislocated his shoulder after racking up an impressive 130 Fantasy points. While the results of his scans are yet to be known, it would be safe to assume he will miss this week and not out of the question that he misses the following week before the Lions' bye. Sadly it looks like he needs to be traded. The posi...

Who's Flying? - Episode 131
We are around a third of the way through the season and things start to get challenging. Yes, they may have already have been challenging so far this season with injuries, suspensions and players being managed, but there is more to come. Gold Coast and Port Adelaide face off in China as they play for premiership points for the first time outside of Australia and New Zealand. What scores can we expect from our Fantasy players in Shanghai? Will the long flight hinder the numbers of our stars? The Traders d...


Sloanedog 0.72 Millionaire - Episode 130
The Crows are flying, sitting at the top of the ladder at 6-0 and midfielder Rory Sloane (MID, $720,000) is leading the way as the top scoring Fantasy player in the competition. A fracture of Sloane's eye socket interrupted his pre-season limiting his ownership. Even some coaches who started with him when named in round one decided that 68 wasn't good enough and traded him out. Since then, Sloane has scored 152, 139, 143, 132 and most recently, 155. The five round average of 144.2 is a true indication of...

First Wave Of DPPs - Episode 129
Every six rounds, the number crunchers at Champion Data work with the team at Fantasy HQ to adjust positions of players to reflect their roles in 2017. Where they line up, gather possessions and their heat maps all go into the mix to award players with dual position status ahead of round six, 12 and 18. In the first round of changes, 24 players have had a position added. Robbie Gray has regained the MID/FWD status that he has held across most of his years. Mitch Robinson and Michael Barlow are other midf...

Making His Marc - Episode 128
It was a round where things started evening out. Some of the players that exceeded expectations early on gave their coaches a reality check. One man who is consistently getting the job done for his coaches is Marc Murphy. Carlton's skipper started at $482,000 and after four rounds is now worth well over $600,000. Murphy is the highest averaging AFL Fantasy player following scores of 139, 125, 145 and 124. While there has been a fast start to the year from our premiums, Murphy is the only player to have sc...


Max, Gawn - Episode 127
A long term injury isn't something that any footy fan likes to see, especially Fantasy coaches. Max Gawn (RUC, $588,000) is set to spend the better part of the next three months on the sidelines following surgery on his injured hamstring. Melbourne's ruckman went down in the second quarter on 32 Fantasy points, meaning the most expensive ruckman at the start of the season dropped $46,000 in value this week. The main talking point on this week's episode of the Official AFL Fantasy Podcast with The Traders ...

Fix 'er Up - Episode 126
TWO ROUNDS in and AFL Fantasy coaches are starting to get an idea of what's working and what's not. Cash cows are the backbone of your Fantasy Classic side. The cheap players are how you are able to generate the coin to upgrade players in your squad so you can get as many premiums in when it comes to the finals in the last four rounds of the year. If you don't think you have the best cash cows in your team at the moment, you need to make them a priority with your two trades this week. Roy, Calvin and War...

Game On, Baby - Episode 125
Round one scores have been tallied, new prices calculated and we're ready to make our first trades. With the weekly price movements, we need to be smart when using our two trades. There were some very high scores this round with 62 players breaking the 100 point barrier. It's important not to just chase last week's big score as Roy, Calvin and Warnie look at the best strategy for this first week of trading on the Official AFL Fantasy Podcast. Also in this week's podcast: - Warnie's lockout experience. - ...


Lockout Week - Episode 124
It has been a long, hard pre-season for AFL Fantasy coaches. Some who were seeking redemption from last year, like Warnie, started as soon as the 2016 season finished. While others have been quietly absorbing information over the last couple of months and are happy with where their squad sits. For quite a few, this is the week when the first virtual step is taken on the Fantasy training track. Teams need to be finalised before the first bounce on Friday night, but if you wish to have a Tiger or a Blue, th...

JLT4 Fantasy Review - Episode 122
...and breathe. The 27 matches of the JLT Community Series are in the can and Fantasy numbers are being crunched as we countdown to the round one lockout. The challenge of playing AFL Fantasy Classic is selecting a starting squad that will score maximum points while staying under the $11M salary cap. To be able to fit as many premium players in your squad, you need to find players who are priced below what their output will be. Pre-season matches give coaches a bit of an idea of who is under-priced based ...


JLT3 Fantasy Review - Episode 121
With all teams having played twice in the JLT Community Series, we are getting a bit of an idea of who could be in each club's best 22 for round one - including the all-important Fantasy bargains.

The boys analyse the players who are impressing as we piece together our Classic squads and who might be moving up the Draft rankings.

JLT2 Fantasy Review - Episode 120
Another weekend of JLT Community Series action has a few more names make their way on the Fantasy watchlist including Jack Steven (MID, $630,000) who played a blistering first half on Thursday night. The Saint went at over two Fantasy points per minute. Steven's ownership increased off the back of that performance as many coaches remembered that he was the highest averaging midfielder of 2015. Roy, Calvin and Warnie highlight some of the best performances of the weekend including potential dual position a...

JLT1 Fantasy Review - Episode 119
The first weekend of the JLT Community Series saw plenty of AFL Fantasy numbers for us to sink our teeth into. Warnie looks at who would be the top scoring players had they played a 'full' game. Although Roy says, we must #StayStrongJLT... but which players have confirmed their places in our Fantasy squads, made their way onto the watch list or may have had a line drawn through their names following the first six matches of the pre-season? Also in this week's podcast: - Game-by-game notes on Fantasy rele...

Which Ruck? - Episode 117
One of the biggest questions this pre-season involves which ruckmen should make their way into your AFL Fantasy Classic team. Over the last few years the top two ruckmen from the previous season haven't backed it up. Will Max Gawn be the man again? Does Brodie Grundy start 2017 how he finished last year? Or do we see Stefan Martin and Todd Goldstein bounce back? Roy, Calvin and Warnie discuss different structures for your ruck line up and how best to spend your cash.
