PLENTY of Fantasy coaches love a knee jerk reaction. That is, trading out an under-performing player for someone who starred, only to see the roles reversed the following week.
While this might be true with round one scores heading into next week, this is the time to right some of your wrongs in Fantasy Classic.

The priority is to make sure you have the best of the bash cows. Errol Gulden is a must-have in the midfield alongside Tom Powell and James Jordan. Be sure to grab James Rowe up forward and if you don’t have Matthew Flynn, lock him in (fitness pending).
It’s not just rookies who could be the must-haves.
You can find plenty of value in the forward line with the likes of Jaidyn Stephenson, Jye Caldwell and Nick Hind looking like they will well and truly outperform their starting prices.
Two of the most popular Fantasy Classic players will require trades this round. Matt Rowell (knee injury) and Patrick Dangerfield (suspension) are likely to miss and should be moved on. You can grab a straight up premium, or you can be clever with some cash grabbing to set you up for future rounds.
