AS THE clock ticks towards round one, thousands of AFL Fantasy leagues will be holding their annual drafts in readiness for the season ahead.

Fantasy Draft pits mate against mate in the ultimate test of your Fantasy knowledge and skills. 

In a Draft league, every player is unique.

Coaches take it in turns to select players, filling their squad with defenders, midfielders, rucks and forwards, and once someone has been drafted, they’re off the table.

Whatever your set-up, you need to be prepared.
