It all came down to Seb Ross in the final game of the season

AFTER 23 rounds the AFL Fantasy season is done and dusted. Record-breaking scores and an amazing finish in the overall rankings, 2018 had it all.

Last year's winner, Selby Lee-Steere, tied for first place with James Robinson as the pair tallied 52,308 points for the season. It came down to Robinson's unique selection of Seb Ross in the final game of the round. A score of 123 would have seen him win the competition outright, 121 and it was a win to Lee-Steere. Ross finished on 122 and for the first time there was a tie at the top in Fantasy Classic.
