For the second night in a row, the AFL was back at Marvel Stadium. This time, it’s with the premiership chasing Western Bulldogs having their last competitive hitout of the preseason against another potential flag contender in Brisbane. Here’s MJ’s take of who stood out for fantasy coaches and who it might be time to fade out on.
It was a frustrating season for Adam Treloar in his first year as a Western Bulldog. Multiple injuries and a horrific Grand Final loss is not the way he’d hoped his season would’ve panned out. But, for us, fantasy coaches, one thing has gone his way in the offseason with Champion Data allocating him MID/FWD. Does that have him in your starting squad considerations? It should!
Champion data have announced the new positions for SuperCoach & AFLFantasy for 2022. As usual, we’ve got some significant positional gains and disappearances. MJ’s back to take you through the changes.
It’s not often a player scores over 200 so when one does we watch in awe and ride the wave. A big congratulations to those 31.8% of coaches who have him in their team, and even more so if you had him as captain or played the VC loophole. As it happens, the last time we saw a score of 200+ was round 10 last year. It also happened to be Clayton Oliver. And it also happened to be against Adelaide. We all know what to lock in for next year!
Midweek there was no inclination about what was to unfold across this weekend. Sure, the weather reports were telling us it’d be the coldest day of the year but no one warned us it would affect so many players this weekend.
Adam Treloar might not have been the most prominent names to move club during the trade period, but it was undoubtedly the most talked about. With a fresh point to prove, does this former Magpie champion need to be picked in your fantasy footy side?
We’ve decided to look at who I believe has been the best SuperCoach performer from each AFL club over the past ten years. Here’s who I believe it is for the Collingwood Football Club.
It was a warm 32 degree day with gusty winds at the infamous Norm Minns Oval in Wangaratta. The Tigers were without Dusty, Cotchin, Houli, Tommy Lynch, Riewoldt and Edwards. Whilst the Pies had Grundy, Pendles, Sidebottom, Moore and Howe missing. Was a good hit-out for both teams, low tackling affair where the Pies had it pretty much on their terms before running out 40 point winners.
Ever since he joined the Magpies, he’s been one of the most reliable midfield premiums available. Everything looks set for that trend to continue for Adam Treloar and his owners.
For the past 5 seasons he’s averaged over 100 in every format, but can this star midfielder get back to elite midfield fantasy numbers?
