Fantasy Positions update regularly in season, and as with every year, there will be plenty of chopping and changing ahead of the upcoming season. Here’s the position additions and their AFL Player Ratings, to determining the key changes that will be the most relevant to fantasy in 2021. AFL Fantasy New DPPs 2021 Lachie Whitfield – Whitfield went from having DEF Status in 2019, to the MID/FWD Status in 2020, and will be heading right back around to DEF next season. After lining up at half-back to rack a majority of his career Fantasy Points, there is a strong possibility he’ll be holding a DPP Status in the DEF/MID at some point in 2021, placing him as the second most expensive defence in 2021, due to his 86.4 average. Christian Petracca – The Top Scoring Fantasy Forward in 2020, just above Whitfield, was Petracca. His huge season in the midfield Continue Reading
Best Fantasy Rucks 2021 Brodie Grundy Price: $757K 2020 Total Points 1637 Brodie Grundy’s price drop (of $149K) in 2020 is actually quite the mystery. He’s paying almost 100K less than Max Gawn, and almost $50K less than Riley O’Brien, while scoring almost 2000 more Fantasy Points. If you want a good, solid ruckman for your 2021 line-up, at a surprisingly low price, go with Brodie Grundy. The Collingwood tall topped the list in Ruck Fantasy Points last year, and looks set to go for gold again in 2021. Tim English Price: $606K 2020 Total Points 1315 English is paying next-to-nothing when it comes to a great ruck. He took home 1315 points in the 2020 season, which makes him decent value for just $606K. The 205cm ruck was cited as the best ruckman available in the 2016 draft pool by experts, and they weren’t wrong. English boasts genuine midfield Continue Reading
Spoilers phantom draft January 5 edition: Pick 1: Hollands – The best player in the draft outside Ugle Hagen by a fair margin and likely career CF. Coming off the knee but in a keeper, half a season on the sidelines means nothing. No brainer pick 1. Pick 2: Phillips – Back in the North Melbourne recruiters, which includes ex campion data analyst Glen Luff. Was first mid taken so that’s saying something. Pick 3: Powell – Another data-led selection by North. Starred in SA colts with big fantasy numbers and will get opportunity. Slight query on ability to translate inside game to AFL but need to back the u18 numbers. Pick 4: Ugle Hagan – Standout best in the draft and best junior aerialist seen in a decade. Upside is off the charts. Will get the chopout of all chopouts from Naughton. Too hard to pass up a 12-15 Continue Reading
