THE BIG boys knew it was time to dance - and dance they did with an unprecedented eight players scoring 149 or more. It was a great way to finish what has been another awesome year of AFL Fantasy and the Traders certainly thank you for your support across all of our content.
FINALS FIXTURE REVEALED Who plays who in week one
For Grand Final and Prize winners, congratulations and enjoy your celebrations. For the rest of us, enjoy the players' trip and be ready for another massive pre-season!
Lachie Neale: It's better late than never. After just two triple-figure scores in six weeks, the Lions ball-magnet exploded for his faithful coaches with a massive 51 possessions, six marks and six tackles while playing a whopping 96 per cent game time for a round-high 162. The cream certainly rose to the top for the Fantasy Norm Smith medallist.
Max Gawn: After sitting out the second half of the final quarter last week with a tight hamstring, many coaches traded out the Demons star, especially with Braydon Preuss being named. For those who didn't jump at the shadows, Max went next level to reward the faith with a massive 154 despite the fact he didn't lay a tackle. He had 41 hitouts and an impressive three goals despite a formidable opponent in Todd Goldstein. A special mention to Jeremy Cameron who made a mockery of the game against the Suns while Jarrod Witts can hold his head up high despite the heavy defeat, both matching Gawn's 154.
NINE THINGS WE LEARNED Forget Jaidyn, Bucks has his finals X-factor
Dustin Martin: The Tigers superstar has been one of the in-form players of the competition with a low score of 111 in his past three games while going over 130 twice. With the injury to Toby Greene, Dusty looked the obvious forward target as a replacement but he fell well short of the mark with just 68 points from just 21 possessions.
AROUND THE STATE LEAGUES Banned Pie returns, axed Dog impresses
Honourable mention: Brad Crouch: After a sensational season, the Crows ball-magnet was a big letdown in his home town of Ballarat. While his brother put on a show for friends and family with a whopping 150, Brad was a far cry from what he has produced on a weekly basis throughout the season with just 24 possessions and no marks for 62.
Congrats mate! Hopefully she still turn up to the alter.
