THE RETURN of footy is just around the corner and AFL Fantasy coaches are scratching their heads as to how to get their teams set before the next lockout.
A partial lockout will be in place on Thursday, June 11 at 7.40pm AEST when the ball is bounced for the Collingwood v Richmond game. Full lockout will be the following day at 7.50pm AEST.
With three trades available in Fantasy Classic and the opportunity to make some Fantasy Draft moves, there is plenty to think about.
The Traders covered plenty on this week’s episode of the podcast but had a heap of questions left over that they thought they’d reconvene for a bonus question and answer version of the show.
