TRAVIS Auld has a big job ahead of him with the rejigging of the fixture, but there are thousands of AFL Fantasy coaches having their agility tested with their teams this week.
Two popular mid-priced players, Jeremy Howe and Sam Naismith, suffered long-term injuries on the weekend. More than 20 per cent of the competition will be using at least one of their three trades this week to replace them.
The trouble is that their prices, while heading north, are awkward and in order to upgrade to a premium, coaches will need a few dollars.
Some creative accounting could help those with both in their squads.
Roy, Calvin and Warnie run through the possible options based on a range of scenarios in this week’s episode of the Official AFL Fantasy Podcast.
