EVEN more Fantasy points were scored in round two which saw more big changes to pricing across the competition.

Coaches are learning a lot in the first season of the Official AFLW Fantasy game. Price changes are volatile but the big points are still coming from the top-priced players.

Jasmine Garner (156) and Ash Riddell (151) were the top scorers which has helped the Kangaroos rank as the highest scoring team after two rounds. Charlie Rowbottom (144) once again racked up double-figure tackles while Kiara Bowers (137) was outstanding with 17 tackles in her first game of the season.

Gemma is combing the record books to see if Kate Hore (142) now holds the record for most Fantasy points in a quarter – both men's and women's – after her blistering first-quarter performance that included 13 disposals, five marks, three tackles and three goals and saw the Demon rack up a massive 84 points in the opening term against the Giants in Canberra.


Paxy Paxman was a late out in the game and those coaches that switched to Hore, just like Gemma, will be stoked with their decision.

Possible trade targets are discussed which include Gab Pound (90) who was a shining light for Fantasy defenders as coaches look for the best use of their salary cap. Scoring trends are put under the microscope when looking for captains and the instant reward for our trades.
