OFF THE back of a high-scoring round for most, the final bye round is approaching and some coaches will be scrambling to field 18 this week.

Eight teams have the bye in round 14, meaning coaches will have four trades to help them navigate the five-game round in Fantasy Classic.

The Traders run through the strategy required to get maximum points for your squad as the simple advice is to trade out players with a bye for those who have already had their week off.

Roy, Calvin and Warnie look at the options you should consider to make your team better for the last 10 rounds of the season.
