Some of our best AFL Fantasy players are tag targets. This obviously makes sense as they're the ones getting plenty of the ball. Should we target the second or third best midfielder for each club with our trades?

The Traders discuss what trades should be considered for the final bye round.

Christian Salem is high on Warnie's shopping list, Roy is keen on Zach Merrett while Calvin is scraping his 18 together and likes the look of Sam Walsh as a VC option.

Join our resident Fantasy experts for a fun episode of the Official AFL Fantasy Podcast. They celebrate the highs from round 14 like Marcus Bontempelli's flu game and lament the lows such as Jy Simpkin being a late out and Luke Ryan's poor return after paying more than $1 million for him.
