The byes are over! Back to full squads this week and time to find the diamond in the rough that will propel your side into your league’s finals. This week’s list includes a forgotten Sun whose scoring ceiling is through the roof plus a premiership winning Bulldog who has returned from a serious knee injury ahead of schedule.
This is a very tough week for unique free agents as we have 8 teams on the bye in what is, thankfully, the final week of byes. This week’s list is made up of players that could be one-week wonders in your side, stepping in to cover for one of
Just the three players again this week due to it being the second of three bye rounds. Making the list are a couple of players fresh off the bye last week that have the potential to help your side in the second half of the year, particularly a North midfielder who could’ve been on his way to his first 100 average season if not for a bad injury in the pre-season. Speaking of injury, also on the list is a much-loved Collingwood forward who returned from a broken leg with a bang!
Just the three players this week as we enter the dreaded bye rounds meaning we only have players from 12 sides to look at it. Making the list is a couple of Saints who have been in and out of the side plus a long time Tiger favourite who offers understated consistency for your midfield.
This week there are four former top 10 picks in the list, including an unlikely veteran down at the Cattery and a young Blue who finished 2020 like a steam train, will he do the same this year?
A two-time premiership star gets a look this week as well as an All-Australian defender that has lost his mojo. Plus, a Melbourne forward who could very well be their good luck charm, and maybe yours too.
This week there’s a possible ruck/forward option with a first choice ruckman likely to be suspended plus there’s a defender who has been scoring poorly as a forward but was moved back to defence this week and, lo and behold, posted a career high score!
Plenty to look at this week including a forgotten Blue on the injury comeback trail and two players in their first seasons at new clubs. Plus, two midfielders who have been around a while and both recorded career high disposals on the weekend.
Each week I’ll bring you some names to consider for your Ultimate Footy side that will hopefully give you the edge you need. To be eligible, a player needs to be available as a free agent in at least 30% of Ultimate Footy leagues. A short one this week as coaches seem to be getting better at finding these diamonds in the rough pushing their ownership up! A DPP at a top club who is yet to play this year gets a mention and so does a slimmed down Bomber whose centre bounce numbers will surprise you.
One of my favourite parts of fantasy footy is nabbing a free agent off the waiver wire before anyone else does and watching him turn into a gun scorer for my draft sides.
