One of the most remarkable in-season fantasy football turnarounds came from Connor Rozee. From being in the dog house to winning the club’s best & fairest, the move into the midfield was sensational for both his confidence and his fantasy football output. The benefit of the slow scoring start is we have a forward premium with some inbuilt value. Are you on board in 2023?
Tom Mitchell was one of the biggest names for the fantasy football community that moved clubs in the offseason. With a return to a lead midfield role at a new club, there is plenty of expectation that we could see some vintage scoring from the former Brownlow Medalist.
Rarely can a premium still be seen with significant value built into it’s price. Stephen Coniglio has that potential in 2023. But, as good as he has been, and can be, is Cogs the perfect player to start within our teams? Or should we be watching what happens under a new coaching regime?
There’s only a handful of players that, across all formats of fantasy footy, have averaged 110 or higher in the past two seasons; Callum Mills is one of them. Despite his high-scoring pedigree, his ownership is criminally low. The upside for brave coaches is he could create the separation you need to succeed in 2023.
It’s been a long time since we’ve talked about Toby McLean and used the phrase ‘fantasy relevant.’ But after a strong score in his one game in the AFL finals, plus favourable pricing across the formats, he’s become a staple in plenty of preseason structures.
A player can slide in and out of favour in the eyes of the fantasy football community. Sometimes for valid reasons, other times for no valid reason. Entering into the 2023 season, the conversations around Christian Petracca have been minimal, but he’s got the potential to be a topline midfielder again this year.
For years Nat Fyfe has been one of the best players in the AFL. Lately, his body has dominated the headlines more than his football. As we enter the 2023 fantasy football season, the gang at Champion Data has given us a potential gift. They’ve awarded Fyfe DPP. As a MID/FWD, he could be one of the best starting squad options.
In 2015 Marcus Bontempelli achieved a rarely-seen feat of becoming a fantasy premium in just his second season of AFL. Since then, ‘Bont’ has been a premium midfielder and a staple of our fantasy sides. As he enters 2023, is it business as usual? Or will we see something change?
All the talk this pre-season is about a Port Adelaide MID/FWD that could be one the best starting squad options. But none of it is about Zak Butters. He’s got the upside not just to match his more popular teammate, but he could be an even better pick.
Injuries create two things: Opportunities and Value. For Dom Sheed, an injury-interrupted season has meant a significant discount on his starting price for the 2023 season. So is he the perfect stepping stone for your starting squad?
