Ultimate Footy: 2019 New Positions

The 2019 fantasy football season is upon us which means Ultimate Footy is back for another year. With Ultimate Footy you can play the way you want to play with an extensive list of features and options. From scoring systems to lineup positions, trading rules to lockout deadlines you can tailor your rules to perfection.

UltimateFooty will open next week so coaches will be able to start preparations for the draft day.

In addition to the starting positions which have been allocated by Champion Data, you’ll also have some other players picking up Dual Position status.


Harry Cunningham
Sydney’s speedster found some scoring form to end to the year with 3 scores over 86 in his final 3 games. Far from the worst late round pick up.

Jack Bowes
Gold Coast have a beauty of a player in Bowes who spent plenty of time developing his craft off half back as well as getting some midfield time last year. Even though he’s coming off a 2018 season where he averaged in the mid-’60s coaches will be anticipating a point scoring bump like what we saw over the final month of the season. We’ve allocated him back status but coaches who draft him will be hopeful of some increased midfield responsibility.

Chris Masten
This premiership Eagle now moves from draft purgatory to being someone worth selecting on draft day. The only question is can you handle the heat from other coaches in your league when you select him onto your roster? A solid high 70’s option who’s shown a history of scoring much more.

Caleb Daniel
Spends plenty of time running through the Bulldog midfield unit and is a more than a handy scoring option.

Kane Lambert
A regular in the Tigers midfield unit who has some serious ability to pump out a big hundred when needed.

Allen Christensen
Like Lambert and others who’ve also been allocated additional centre position, the relevance is now in the increased flexibility it gives you on your roster more than anything else.

Sam Petrevski-Seton
We’ve seen enough to suggest he deserves the DPP gain. Blues fans will be hoping for a further increase again in midfield time.

Oscar McInerney 
Spent plenty of time early last year based predominantly forward and given the occasional rucking responsibility. As the year went on so too did his ruck role increase. His addition of ruck status means you can handcuff him to his teammate Stefan Martin.

Rowan Marshall
Showed he can play at AFL level last year with some important roles inside the Saints forward 50 as well as in the ruck. Like Big O he’s not your #1 ruck, but linking him with likely ruck starter Billy Longer could be a handy late draft selection.

Sam Lloyd
The former Tiger has always been a handy option when given the opportunity. Now gaining forward status and strong job security at the Bulldogs he may be worth considering late on draft day.

Harry Taylor
The Geelong swingman spent enough time as an avenue to goal to get forward status. A very relevant option depending on the scoring set up your league uses.
