50 Most Relevant: The Concept

And so it begins! Another fantasy football preseason filled with optimism, hope and the possibilities that in 2019 maybe this year will be your year for fantasy success.  For us at The Coaches Panel after our 12-month hiatus, a new website location it’s time to once again take part in helping you in your journey of Fantasy Footy glory.

Between now and March 21st 2019 when the season opens and lockouts commence you’ll look at hundreds of players, trial thousands of combinations and probably tinker with your fantasy football side multiple times per day. Here at the Coaches Panel, our desire is never to tell you what to do, rather it’s to give you good information for you to make informed decisions about your side.

What makes a player fantasy football relevant?

It’s a number of factors, including but not limited to: starting price, scoring ceiling, scoring consistency,  what position they’ve been allocated by Champion Data and the opportunities that may have become available during the offseason. These are just some of the reasons a player is relevant in salary cap formats. 

The list isn’t about predicting the top 50 averaging players for 2019, far from it. Rather it’s about looking at all players, across all salary cap formats and using the premiums, mid-price, stepping stones and cash cows available to us to see who could be helpful in helping us achieve our goal of fantasy footy success.

The goal of the 50 most relevant and fantasy footy in general this early in the preseason is about doing the research, having open minded conversations and seeing the potential possibilities at our fingertips.

Starting January 1st, and then for the following 49 days, I’d like to invite you to join with me as I share with you who I believe are the 50 most relevant players in the salary cap formats of SuperCoach, DreamTeam & AFLFantasy in one combined universal list. 

The countdown will include a daily article, podcast as well as a drafting range projection for both single season and keeper leagues. And if you wish to get early access to 50 Most Relevant podcasts then you can do that by joining our Patreon.

I look forward to spending the next few months discussing fantasy footy and can’t wait to hear about your thoughts on  who I believe are the 50 Most Relevant players for 2019. 


Throughout the countdown some players you’ll agree with, others you won’t and that’s OK. This is a subjective list, but one that I hope encourages you as a fantasy coach. I and other members of the panel would love to chat about all forms of fantasy with you.
