After rounds 3, 6, 9, 12 & 15 the drafting format of Ultimate Footy awards additional player positions to players that have had a role change in season. At the conclusion of the round we’ll confirm with you exclusively which players WILL gain a new position, but before then here are some players we believe would be in consideration for obtaining a new positional status.
It’s the trade current owners are dreading to make. But due to a shoulder injury suffered on the weekend and subsequent decision to get surgery has meant one thing. It’s for us to trade out Josh Dunkley in all salary cap versions of Fantasy Footy. On top of this, Lachie Neale will require surgery on his ankle and will almost miss multiple months of footy. He too is a must trade out player. But who should we be looking at as trade targets?
Before round 6, 12 and 18, the gang at AFLFantasy team up with Champion Data to add some new DPP into the game. After round 5, the first list of names and positions will be released. Historically, AFLFantasy has said that players need a minimum of 35% to be considered for a new allocation in a new position. So let’s see which players are locks, close or no chance of getting DPP.
One thing that separates good coaches from great coaches is that they aren’t just looking at trades for this week. Rather great coaches are looking multiple weeks ahead to be ready to be traded into their teams. In this new series, we look at players who this week and the following two weeks will have likely bottomed out in price and could be a tasty trade target for your side. Each week we’ll focus on the players in DreamTeam, AFLFantasy and SuperCoach you should be forecasting to bring into your side because they are ripe for the picking.
15 players have gained an additional position. Seven players have gained back status, two gaining centre, two new rucks and four have picked up forward status. Let’s look at who they are and the relevance to your draft sides and leagues.

This is one of the most pivotal weeks of the year for fantasy football coaches. Especially in DreamTeam & SuperCoach, given after this round, the prices of players begin to change. So before round three gets underway, MJ looks at a number of trading priorities coaches need to consider.
Three weeks suspension! That was the verdict handed down by the AFL tribunal. It’s now long enough for Fantasy Footy coaches, even the most pro Danger owners, they know a trade needs to be done. Why? Because he’s eligible for only 7 of the next 11 rounds of AFL footy due to the suspensions and the Cats round1 2 bye.
As always, each format requires a different mindset and strategy. So I’ve broken down by formats the best Fantasy Footy replacements for Patrick Dangerfield.
It’s time to kick off our Team Reveals for the 2021 SuperCoach season. Up first is our podcast host MJ. What do you think of his side?
A big call, right? For years he’s been a staple of our fantasy football sides regardless of the formats or versions you play. But in 2021, I’m not starting Brodie Grundy. Here’s why.
