Finals Time – Ep. 145

Fantasy coaches are reeling from the news that Patrick Dangerfield has been offered a one-week suspension from the Match Review Panel. The second most selected player in Fantasy Classic was cited for his rough conduct on Matthew Kreuzer on Saturday night.

If he accepts the one-match ban with an early plea, down from two weeks, 56 per cent of coaches will be making a big call this week on what to do with the Brownlow Medallist.

The Fantasy finals work in the same way that the AFL ones do. The top four have a double chance this week, while fifth to eighth face elimination.

Strategy for this round can be different from team to team.

Curveballs like the Dangerfield suspension, injuries to key players and decisions on who to field or bench will play a key role in shaping the way in each league plays out. Not only for Classic, but for Draft leagues. Picking the right free agents in a time of need can go a long way to deciding upcoming head-to-head battles this weekend.

Join Roy, Calvin and Warnie as they help you get the edge over your opponent whether you’re aiming for a week off or trying to avoid elimination… or even battling it out in the plate final like Roy is!

  • Is it time to trade out Darcy and grab Max Gawn?

  • Danger has a week to freshen up for the end of the year.

    • Yep, I’ll be parking him on the bench for a week’s rest.
      But I feel for the poor buggers who may have to deal with Danger’s week out AND big Kreuzer possibly missing too from his concussion. A double-whammy nightmare right at the start of finals

  • Fucking stupid MRP is so bias it’s not funny. How does Dusty Martin get off scotch free for punching a guy in the face from behind and Danger gets done for that? Even all the experts were sayin he was fine. Then there’s Houli and Schofield, what the f**k went on there? Going to cost Danger a brownlow and is so stupid I can’t get over it. Sack all of themI say.

    • I take it you haven’t read the MRP Guidelines

    • Scotch free? A rarely used variant I must say.

    • Punching? Barely even touched him. If the MRP is going to be consistent, he has to get a week. Why should mccarthy and waite get a week for the same action and danger gets off?? The AFL has caused this, now watch them fold like a deck chair….

      • Haha chill guys, I was kidding. Just wanted to see how people reacted. Probably not the best troll but I love your reactions. Totally worth it XD

  • Nick Riewoldt in for last time ever, will miss having his name in the lineup, could finish with a bang.

  • Trade rocky for beams?

    • Sounds good. But can Beams play the next four to make it eight in a row? He hasn’t done that all year.

      • There are never any guarantees like that in footy. Maybe Beamer’s body won’t hold up … but neither did Blakely’s!
        Just gotta base your trade decisions on the best possible info and consideration and then keep your fingers crossed and hold your breath …
        Gotta love footy – and this game shits me :)
