Inside the Fantasy Numbers – Round 21

We are now at the business end of the season with league Grand Final spots up for grabs and for those fortunate enough to be in the race for overall AFL Fantasy champion, the focus for coaches should narrow in on good single game match-up opportunities rather than season long performances. Coaches that do not undertake the opportunities that could exist over the next 2 weeks are at a disadvantage compared to those coaches willing to slot a lesser name in to their line-up and reap the rewards, whilst it is comforting selecting a big name for Round 22 many of those players could easily be outperformed.

Here is a Round 21 snapshot of last time each team played against each other and the top scorers from each game, hopefully there will be a player or two standout from these numbers for you to take in to consideration.
