THERE are less than a handful of coaches with two top 100 AFL Fantasy hats, but there’s only one who could have added a car if it wasn’t for an errant kick.

Leigh Elder, coach of Statesman, chatted about what could have been in 2018 when a tie for first place could have been avoided if Mitch Robinson had have hit Dayne Beams with a disposal late in the round 23 game.

The top five from the 2018 AFL Fantasy Classic.

Elder enjoys playing Fantasy Classic but has a passion for Draft leagues, especially Keeper Leagues. He is excited that the AFL Fantasy platform now supports keeper leagues and offers some advice for those drafting their initial squad this season on the latest episode of The Traders’ AFL Fantasy podcast.
