THERE may have been some slight tweaks to the schedule this week but as far as Fantasy goes, nothing changes.

At this stage of the year we need to continue to remove our fattened rookies e.g. Errol Gulden (MID/FWD, $484,000), Braeden Campbell (MID/FWD, $379,000) and mid pricers e.g. Taylor Walker (FWD, $616,000), Orazio Fantasia (DEF/FWD, $470,000), in order to take advantage of some under-priced premiums.

Under-priced targets include:

  • Josh Kelly (FWD/MID, $674,000)
  • Caleb Daniel (DEF, $575,000)
  • Aaron Hall (DEF/FWD, $575,000)

Keep an eye on Jordan Ridley (DEF, $652,000) who still has a BE of 144.

The byes are just around the corner so keep it in mind when trading over the next few weeks. Ideally, your team will be heavier in the back end to allow you to target upgrades coming off the rounds 12 and 13.

Round 12: Roos, Suns, Giants, Power, Cats, Hawks
Round 13: Tigers, Dogs, Eagles, Lions, Blues, Bombers
Round 14: Crows, Saints, Swans, Pies, Dockers, Demons

Hopefully this is the last Thursday night/Friday we don’t have access to the teams and Sunday squads. As Fantasy coaches, your campaigning has been exceptional and it appears a happy ending is in sight! Not surprisingly, Chris Scott has already flagged a return to the predictable late change or two at the Cattery… ah, it’ll be good to be back.
