• Nine things we learned from round 18
• How did your club's players fare in this week's state leagues?

The finals are almost here with just one round and four trades until the real season starts. Hopefully our teams are almost complete at this point with guns across the board. Personally, I have one more defender to upgrade before I consider my team complete. 

Fantasy Pig

Dan Hannebery was a monster with 40 touches, 10 marks and three goals, continuing his outstanding season to lead all scorers this round with 153. He has a five-round average over 120 and is owned by less than five per cent of the competition making him a perfect trade target leading into the finals.

Fantasy Prestigiacomo

Before this weekend, Nick Malceski had been in great form and his spike in ownership reflected that. But against the Eagles he took a big step backwards as he seemingly played deeper in defence and as a result, struggled to find the ball, scoring 53 from just 12 possessions.

Junior Swine

Young Docker Lachie Weller was injected into the game in the fourth quarter on debut and certainly showed Pig tendencies in his limited time on ground. He managed to score 37 from eight touches, three marks and two tackles and is certainly one to watch as a downgrade option and future Fantasy star.

Round 18's top 10 scores:

Dan Hannebery: 153
Lachie Neale: 147
Heath Shaw: 147
Joel Selwood: 146
Brent Stanton: 143

That is awesome mate! Well done.

It doesn’t have to be the highest scorer that earns the votes, Great win!
