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.

The game offers a variety of settings to tailor the experience to best suit your league.

Commissioners have the ability to select how your league is structured, including the number of coaches and squad size through to your draft day experience such as how long each coach has to make their pick.

Whatever your set up, you need to be prepared. 

This pre-season we have once again put together our annual AFL Fantasy Draft Kit to help you on your way to success.

The guide aims to help you rise above the pressure of draft day (or night) and make every selection count with stats and advice directly from Fantasy HQ.

There's also a recap of our 10-coach draft that was completed by some self-proclaimed Fantasy experts from Fantasy HQ as well as Champion Data’s Fantasy Freako and the 2018 Fantasy Classic champion James Robinson and 2017 winner Selby Lee-Steere.

See how the draft panned out, pick-by-pick and hear from each coach about the team that they’ll take into 2019.
