One of the most relevant games of the weekend was the Western Bulldogs and North Melbourne. Have we finally solved our ruckline dilemma? And have some players that we’ve locked away all preseason created cause for concern. Check out my review of the match. Embed from Getty Images Jackson Macrae
For nearly a decade, Jackson Macrae has been a staple in our SuperCoach, AFLFantasy & DreamTeam sides. For many, he’s ripe for the picking again in 2023, while some look past him in favour of other options. But whatever the outcome, Macrae is set to be one of the most relevant players for fantasy AFL this season.
What happens in the ruck division this year determines our season’s success. Is Tim English the key to unlocking your ruck structure?
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.
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?
Bailey Smith started the 2022 season on fire; he became one of the most popular and in demand players. Entering 2023, I have barely seen anyone mention him, let alone plan to start with him. His low potential ownership could be a gold mine for coaches willing to jump on.
Is the arrival of Zaine Cordy to St Kilda among the least fantasy relevant moves this offseason?
With Liam Jones return to Whitten Oval in 2023 will he be fantasy football relevant?
For the past four seasons, Jackson Macrae has been a consistent top tier premium midfielder across all formats of the game. However, he’s not just a good fantasy player he’s a brilliant footballer in general.
2021 was a season of two split experiences for Josh Dunkley and fantasy coaches. Over the opening six weeks, he was among the best players in the game. However, once he came back from injury, he was being outperformed by cash cows. So what does 2022 hold for this Western Bulldog?
