A FEW weeks ago, it was suggested by some pundits that GWS captain Stephen Coniglio should be omitted from the Giants' senior side.

While this did not happen and is unlikely to happen, there are some AFL Fantasy coaches willing to swing the axe.

NINE THINGS WE LEARNED Giants' defence looks lost without Phil

Fantasy Classic teams are getting primed for finals, which kick off next week, with many teams nearing completion. What this means is that there are no rookies on field and the weekly trades are then around some luxury moves.

Coniglio appears in 28 per cent of Fantasy Classic sides and scored 52 in round 13. The Giants skipper's average of 69 from his last three games is far from what's expected from a premium midfielder. The top 30 midfielders average 80 or more this season.

On this week's episode of the Official AFL Fantasy Podcast, The Traders consider trading Coniglio. Roy, Calvin and Warnie look at the options that could gain more points and potentially more cash.
