WE may only have two weeks of data, but there have been some unacceptable scores from some of the best Fantasy players in the game.
Reigning Brownlow Medallist Lachie Neale (MID, $829,000) has dropped $106k with more to come based on his breakeven of 191. Last week’s score of 51, backing up from his 68 in round one, was well below his 123 average in 2020. Neale is currently the third most traded out player.

The fifth most traded out player since lockout lifted is Andrew Gaff (MID, $756,000). The Eagle has also struggled in his opening two games.
Although they’re dropping cash, the simple advice is to hold your premiums.
That said, Reilly O’Brien (RUC, $727,000) could be moved on. Rucks have struggled this year and the Crow is averaging under 50 points per game. A breakeven of 171 makes a move to Jarrod Witts (RUC, $634,000) a good option considering he’s averaging 97 points.
