The Traders are back with another Fantasy podcast!

CONFIDENCE is low as coaches look to lock in their Fantasy Classic ruck line-up for 2023.

The most common combination is Tim English and Rowan Marshall, the new set-and-forget. After a long time coming in as the top two rucks, Brodie Grundy and Max Gawn are now rucking together at the Dees and their Fantasy numbers are likely to drop.


Roy, Calvin and Warnie discuss the viable options, including saving some cash with Port Adelaide's Scott Lycett.

On this week's episode of The Traders' AFL Fantasy Podcast,'s Michael Whiting joins the show to discuss the Fantasy-relevant players from the Lions and the Suns.
