WITH FOUR rounds of data, is it safe to name the best AFLW Fantasy players for season eight?

There are some easy selections. Jasmine Garner tops the midfielders and after Ebony Marinoff scored 174 on the weekend (the second highest AFLW Fantasy score of all-time), they safely sit as the two best midfield options. The best forwards, led by Laura Gardiner and Bonnie Toogood, are averaging more than 100 with Nina Morrison and Kate Hore not far behind.

Picking that fifth forward, along with the best defenders, is a tough ask as there are plenty of players who could make the list.

That's the beauty of AFLW Fantasy.

Warnie and Gemma chat through the best 16 after four rounds and discuss trading strategy … including whether moving on Kiara Bowers is a good idea. Although Harriet Cordner has been a great cash cow, her score of 24 saw her price plummet for the first time this season. Is it time to go?

Plenty of your questions are answered and the four days of AFLW action is outlined with some big games on Friday that Fantasy coaches need to be across on the latest episode of the Official AFLW Fantasy Podcast.
