DANE Swan might have a few regrets about a 'putrid' 2014 season, but his time spent resting up forward could reap a bonanza for NAB AFL Fantasy coaches next year.
Swan has become a dual-position player for the 2015 Fantasy season, moving to MID/FWD after a storied Fantasy career spent purely as a midfielder.
Based on Champion Data's heat maps, the upcoming release of prices and positions for all AFL players contains some surprises and the prospect of a few bargains to tempt ambitious coaches.
Notable premium players Brendon Goddard (now MID/FWD) and Brett Deledio (MID/FWD) are likely to feature in plenty of Fantasy squads next year as they become dual-position options.
Other traditionally strong Fantasy scorers gaining a position next year include bullocking Roo Jack Ziebell (MID/FWD after a useful 18 goals in 2014), new Lion Allen Christensen (MID/FWD) and 2008 Brownlow medallist Adam Cooney (MID/FWD).
