AFL Fantasy launches for 2019 with new-look site

The Traders launch AFL Fantasy for 2019 A new season of AFL Fantasy is off and running and it's time to pick your team

AFL FANTASY is open for 2019!

More than just a lick of paint, the new-look site has been launched for the upcoming season with a raft of improvements across the two games.

The salary cap game, Fantasy Classic, requires you to select a starting squad of 30 players under the $12.8m salary cap, the same figure each AFL club must stay under.

Classic coaches will be impressed by the redesigned team page which makes selecting your teams and navigating the extensive statistics a breeze. Flipping over a player card will allow you to change your captain, sub players around your team and complete trades. In the pre-season you will have unlimited trades until the round one lockout. Fantasy Coach subscribers will have exclusive stats, such as breakevens, at the click of a button when they flip the cards.

More information than ever has been included in each player profile and the stats centre.

After last year's crazy overall finish needed a tiebreak, make sure you register nice and early to avoid any chance of a repeat!

Fantasy Draft continues to increase in popularity each year. Every League is its own entity where every player is unique. Teams are selected via a live draft, similar to the NAB AFL Draft in November. Once someone has been picked, no other coach can own him unless a trade between coaches is completed or he is dropped as a free agent.

The Draft game has also had a major revamp. A lot of time has been put into making sure the experience for coaches competing in their League is second to none. Greater flexibility for commissioners, an easy-to-use pre-Draft rankings page and an improved in-season League experience highlight the changes. Live drafts will be able to be scheduled from mid-February and the draft day experience will be something to remember!
