FANTASY Classic coaches are needing every one of their two trades in the latter stages of the season to deal with the injuries and bad luck that keeps coming their way.

Luckily there was a bit more time to think about the Kelly trade than the subsequent Callum Mills (Achilles) move on Saturday night. Less than 10 minutes before the bounce of the ball in the Swans versus Saints clash, Mills was withdrawn from the team.
While there was plenty of drama over the weekend, including a first-quarter injury that saw Patrick Dangerfield’s night end with just 15 points to his name, there are quite a few coaches on track from scores in excess of 2400 this round.
